ODOT work resumes in North Bend Officials hope work moves quickly to minimize the disruption at area businesses ■


NORTH BEND — For downtown business owners, the reprieve is over. Road work that frayed nerves last summer is returning this week, but the end is in site. “ I think the businesses just want it to be completed and over,” Oregon Department of Transportation spokesman Dan Latham said by phone Monday. “There hasn’t been a whole lot of daytime interruption going on, but there will be as we do this portion of the project.” Prime contractor Knife River will begin sidewalk and curb extension work this week, tentatively planning to begin at the intersection of Florida Avenue and Highway 101. They will gradually work southward until they reach Washington Avenue. Latham said ODOT has tried to limit SEE DOWNTOWN | A8

Suspect accused of inmate assault



COQUILLE — A Bandon man who was already in jail for an alleged robbery has added to his list of charges by striking a murder suspect while both were in Coos County Jail, officials said. Samuel V. Goldfaden was charged with fourth-degree assault and harassment July 21 for an attack on Coos County jail inmate Jesse Longhenry. Longhenry is awaiting trial for murder that will begin in January. Goldfaden, 56, is charged with first-degree robbery and unlawful use of a weapon. He’s accused of stealing money from Wilson’s Market in Bandon at gunpoint on June 28. According to the charges, Goldfaden came into Wilson’s with his shirt over the bottom of his face and had his other hand behind his back. Goldfaden allegedly apologized to the clerk as he approached the cash register, then swung his arm from behind his back and aimed a black, semi-automatic pistol at the man as he demanded money.

TAVARES, Fla. — A series of explosions rocked a central Florida propane gas plant and sent “boom after boom after boom” through the neighborhood around it. Eight people were injured, with at least four in critical condition. John Herrell of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said early today there were no fatalities despite massive blasts that ripped through the Blue Rhino propane plant late Monday night. Officials initially scrambled to find more than a dozen employees after the explosions. “Management is comfortable saying all of those they knew were there tonight have been accounted for,” he said. Tavares Fire Chief Richard Keith said possible causes of the explosion may be either equipment malfunction or possibly human error. Sabotage was not suspected. One person injured in the explosion was listed in critical condition at University of Florida Health Shands

don said firefighters were forced to remove sections of the ceiling throughout the home to gain access. The structure is being written off as a total loss due to water damage, with an estimated value of $35,000. Oregon Department of Transportation flaggers were brought in to control traffic along Cape Arago Highway. Sneddon said the Red Cross was called in to assist the home’s owner and occupant, who was uninjured.

Training, equipment and a little luck Our view An Oregon State Police trooper deserves praise for going above and beyond the call of duty.

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

Call it cosmic convergence or alignment of lucky stars or something like that. A state trooper with the right training and the right equipment in the right place at the right time. That’s all it took to save a man who’s heart began to fail him last week. He was so lucky. Oregon State Trooper Freddie Dunlap was going off duty but was listening in when an emergency call came in the early morning from a North Bend convenience store, where the man had collapsed.

Dunlap is a retired Army nurse and emergency medical technician. That alone might have been enough to render emergency first aid. But in his cruiser, Dunlap was carrying an automated external defibrillator. The device was one of two on loan from an area hospital. North Bend police and fire personnel stood by while Dunlap attached the machine to the man and shocked him — twice — and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Bay Cities Ambulance arrived and took the man to the hospital.

Afterward, Dunlap understandably tried to put his effort into a perspective: “Part of our training is with the AED,” he said. “They’re very simple. You put them on and hit the button and it tells you what to do . . ..” And yes, Dunlap is technically correct. Many first aid training courses show students how to work the devices. It looks easy; until you find yourself kneeling over someone who is dying. In light of this tragedy, a number of good lessons emerge: ■ A law enforcement offi-

cer once again reminded us these men and women are here to serve and protect, not just catch bad guys. ■ A small amount of lifesaving training is well worth the time invested (and not just by public servants). ■ Having the right equipment at the right time (like an $1,800 AED) can make a difference between life and death. ■ Serendipity indeed does exist. Now we just have to wonder how long the hospital’s equipment loan to the troopers is good for.

Pope has a message for all “The only way to survive here is to become a drug dealer. The lucky ones drive cabs and don’t have to,” Donovan explained to me. He is groundskeeper at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I thought of Donovan as the first American pope greeted millions in Rio for World Youth Day. There is a “selfishness that prevails in our society,” the pope said. He spoke of “dealers of death” who “follow the logic of power and money at any cost,” and a “scourge of drug-trafficking, that favors violence and sows the seeds of suffering and death.” To solve this problem requires a societal act of courage. He dismissed “liberalization of drug use” efforts, insisting that “it is necessary to confront the problems underlying the use of these drugs, by promoting greater justice, educating young people in the values that build up life in society, accompanying those in difficulty and giving them KATHRYN hope for the future.” LOPEZ He went on to chalColumnist lenge and encourage us to make that confrontation: “We must hold the hand of the one in need, of the one who has fallen into the darkness of dependency perhaps without even knowing how, and we must say to him or her: You can get up, you can stand up. It is difficult, but it is possible if you want to.” It was hard not to be moved by the scenes this past week of the pope visiting the favelas — slums — of Varginha. Beautiful children, delighted mothers, beaming fathers — they all held out their hands, hoping for a word and a prayer. Pope Francis talked about our common humanity to these people. No one should remain insensitive to the inequalities that persist in the world. Everybody, according to his or her particular opportunities and responsibilities, should be able help put an end to social injustice. A “culture of solidarity,” he said, “seeing others not as rivals or statistics, but brothers and sisters” is what “builds up and leads to a more habitable world.” There are moral guideposts being celebrated and highlighted in Rio that can enrich our civic lives and help civil society flourish. Donovan in Jamaica has gotten the message that the pope seeks to deliver to the world. Just before Thanksgiving, when I ran into him, still cleaning up from Hurricane Sandy, he was expectant. That coming weekend, he would be receiving Communion for the first time. “When I am at a celebration of the Eucharist, I delight in the Eucharist. I know God is here. I feel his presence,” Donovan told me, standing in the small prayer hall adjacent to the church. The declaration came in the midst of grinding poverty of the kind that could breed envy, as tourists from luxury cruise liners come through town day after day. And yet there is a hope on some faces. “I know my life has purpose. I don’t know what God’s will for me is, but I know he made me with a purpose. I know he loves me. And I just try to share what I know of him. Sometimes God’s purpose for us is in small things. Sometimes it is a smile to someone who is having a bad day — we all have bad days. We all have worries and troubles, sometimes our purpose is to show a little love.” In Rio, Pope Francis talked about his desire to knock on every door in Brazil. Obviously, he can’t do that. But the Church he leads is one in which every single member has a missionary mandate. At the heart of that mandate is a hope that is more powerful than politics and can never be fully seen on TV. Whatever you believe, perhaps we can at least all start with respect for our common human dignity, which no culture, no form of politics, no addiction should rob us of. And thank God for that.

Public Forum This is no way to run a business Gardiner Sanitary is a prime example of how not to run a business. Business owners on the board have been given exemptions from paying fees for their home and businesses, while empty properties are charged multiple fees. Projected rates are now $104, but only if we get $2 million in grants and we can find part-time Class 2 operators for $15 per hour with no benefits. Gardiner has no equipment, no trucks, nothing. The DEQ, at the May meeting, quoted $160 fees if we try to have our own plant. Much of the population is under the poverty level, yet the board claims we must develop our own plant because International Paper needs our help with redeveloping their property. Gardiner wants to get loans and grants while it does not pay its monthly fees to Reedsport. Deadbeats usually have problems with credit and Gardiner is basically broke after spending more than twice as much on studies than it would cost to pay its share of upgrading and staying with Reedsport. It claims Gardiner is owed hundreds of thousands, yet when asked how it came to that conclusion, could only show invoic-

es from Reedsport showing that Gardiner owed more than half its cash reserves. Every study but Gardiner’s has shown it is cheaper to go with Reedsport. Now Gardiner wants to spend more on yet another study, taking another year. When the regional manager of the DEQ said it had been patient, no more time for studies, Gardiner told him off, saying we would go to IP regardless. They let the DEQ know they did not know what they were talking about when the DEQ said the pipeline would be faster, cheaper and routine. Gardiner claims it would take four to five years for permits alone. We in Gardiner are told that we need GSD because it is a voice for Gardiner, yet citizens are forbidden from speaking about current issues of business. We have a voice, it is composed of four people, and the voice stinks. Mack Holman Gardiner

Those bent on violence want fear I have been reading many newspaper articles on states thinking about scrapping their “Stand Your Ground” laws, and looked deeper into the subject. Does Oregon have a Stand Your Ground law? It appears that we

do not. Why not? That took a lot more research. What I found out was that many states had laws on the books that required a person being confronted with aggression to do all they could to defuse the situation, the so called “Duty to Retreat” laws. In many states, if you are confronted in a public park by a person wielding a knife and demanding your money, you have a duty to retreat. If you hit the aggressor with your umbrella, you have failed to retreat, and if you claim that the wound you delivered was done in self defense, your plea will fail the test of reasonable action. You failed to retreat! It looks like many of these Duty to Retreat states are changing their minds; and to reverse this illogical law, they adopted a Stand Your Ground law that allows a person to confront an aggressor without first retreating. Oregon won’t need a Stand Your Ground law, as we have never had a Duty to Retreat. But this led me to think about the absurd idea of Duty to Retreat. There are a few really nasty people out there that will confront you wherever you may be using the threat of violence to coerce you into doing what they want. They rely on fear to achieve their aims. I am reminded of an encounter I had with a

dog that was set on preventing me from walking down my driveway. Growls and bared fangs told me that dog was up to no good. But I knew that one of the worst choices I could make would be to turn and run. Predators bent on violence want fear. To show them weakness or any lack of resolve simply emboldens them. So I really don’t get Duty to Retreat. To me it seems designed to make it easier for robbers, muggers and rapists to ply their trade. I am comfortable living in a state that does not need a Stand Your Ground law, where self defense is weighed by the exact circumstances of the conflict and not weighed on some arbitrary requirement to retreat.

State and Nation Fires grow, S. Ore. crews expect favorable weather STATE

PORTLAND (AP) — Crews in Southern Oregon expect favorable weather today as they grapple with wildfires that broke out during lightning strikes over the weekend. Spokesman Brian Ballou of the Oregon Department of Forestry told the Medford Mail Tribune that fire was spreading readily Monday because July has been so dry. Using helicopters and dropping retardant from planes, as Ballou put it, was “marginally effective.” At the Douglas Complex near Glendale, about 400 homes are considered threatened, and residents of The Associated Press 105 of them have been North Las Vegas Police honor guard members stand at the side of the casket of search and rescue officer David Vanbuskirk as a visitor pays his advised to leave. respects during a visitation and funeral service, Monday in Henderson, Nev. Vanbuskirk fell to his death attempting to rescue a stranded hiker on Fire spokesman Dave Wells says the high temperaa rocky ledge at Mount Charleston on July 22. Vanbuskirk's death marks the first time a Las Vegas officer has died on duty since 2009. tures today are expected to range from 70 to 80, with humidity over 20 percent — relatively good weather for fighting wildfires.

Funeral, processions honor fallen Vegas officer BY MICHELLE RINDELS The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas police officers wearing olive search-and-rescue fatigues gripped a church lectern Monday, choking up as they remembered a colleague who died last week saving a hiker stranded on a mountain ledge. Co-workers described David Vanbuskirk, 36, as a disciplined and humble man who rose before the sun, refused to take off his wedding band for training exercises, and returned to the hospital the day after rescues to check on people he had saved. “He was absolutely the best of us,” said Sgt. Gavin Vesp, who was Vanbuskirk’s super1 visor for 3 ⁄2 years. “He was a phenomenal human being.” The auditorium at Central Christian Church, which seats 2,900, was near capacity for Vanbuskirk’s funeral. The church’s upper seating section was a sea of police officers in tan, many wearing a black stripe across their badges as a reminder of

the death, which was the department’s first on-duty casualty since 2009. Authorities are still investigating how Vanbuskirk died performing a maneuver he’d done dozens of times before. The officer was on the search-and-rescue team since 2007 and worked for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department since 1999. National Transportation Safety Board officials said they expect to release their preliminary report on the accident later this week. Rescuers responded shortly before 9 p.m. July 22 to reports that a hiker was disoriented and stranded on a rocky ledge just above Mary Jane Falls. The area was marked with signs warning hikers to stay out or face fines, according to Jay Nichols, spokesman for Spring Mountains National Recreation Area. A wildfire had been burning in the area, and park workers closed some trails to protect hikers from smoking material, ash pits and falling trees.

After landing, Vanbuskirk attached a safety harness to the stranded man, who was hiking alone. Vanbuskirk signaled to the four rescue workers in the helicopter above to hoist him and the hiker from the craggy ledge. But the officer somehow detached from the line in midair and fell a “nonsurvivable” distance to the ground below, officials said. The hiker was safely rescued. Vesp fought back tears as he described the helicopter crew returning to the scene to recover “our brother’s” body, and how he touched Vanbuskirk’s face and closed the fallen officer’s eyes for the last time. “I want everyone to know that David was at peace and that being on that mountain with him that night was the greatest honor of my life,” he said. Vesp said some have questioned why the hiker entered the area in the first place, but the sergeant told the audience David risked his life for others each day

and wouldn’t want people to focus on that. During the two-hour funeral, Vanbuskirk’s friends and his sister Jenny told stories about his playful side. Gov. Brian Sandoval’s chief of staff, Gerald Gardner, said the officer every day displayed “courage most of us can only guess at,” while Sheriff Doug Gillespie lauded Vanbuskirk as selfless. “Men like David restore the balance,” Gillespie said. “They give us faith that there’s more good than bad in this world.” When the service came to a close, an honor guard of two dozen drummers and bagpipe players led the way for nine pallbearers, who lifted Vanbuskirk’s flagdraped casket to the open bed of a police pickup truck. Family members slipped into two cream-colored limousines behind it, and a train of black and white police vehicles followed them to the cemetery, their lights flashing blue and red in silence.

Ore. coast RV fires kill woman, 2 dogs FLORENCE (AP) — Authorities are trying to determine the cause of a weekend fire that burned two recreational vehicles on the Oregon coast, killing a woman and two dogs. The Oregonian reports that state troopers say 52year-old Patricia Eilene Howell was found dead Saturday, along with one dog, inside an RV on property near Florence. A second dog’s body was found in a second RV that burned nearby. Police say all three died of fire-related injuries. Howell lived on the property with the dogs.

SALEM (AP) — A 47-yearold Salem woman who ran down her husband and threatened another woman with a gun was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison. Shirley Teresa Nunez pleaded no contest to charges of assault and unlawful use of a weapon, and the Marion County district attorney’s office dropped an attempted murder charge. Court records say Nunez drove into Salem Officer Kenneth Nunez in December 2010, causing injuries that have prevented him from returning to work. Earlier she went to the home of another woman she had confronted her husband about and tried to force her way inside while armed with a gun.

The Register-Guard reports the program will provide a year’s worth of mortgage payments — up to a total of $20,000 — plus up to $10,000 in back payments to bring mortgages current. Spokesman Benjamin Pray says the program is intended to give struggling homeowners some breathing space and allow them to stabilize their finances. As of March 31, there were 30,323 Oregon homeowners more than 90 days late on their payments. The Home Rescue Program is funded by the federal Hardest Hit Fund.

Nation U.S. limbo for Nazi war criminals ordered out MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — At least 10 suspected Nazi war criminals ordered deported by the United States never left the country, according to an Associated Press review of Justice Department data — and four are living in the United States today. All remained eligible for public benefits such as Social Security until they exhausted appeals, and in one case even beyond. Quiet American legal limbo was the fate of all 10 men uncovered in the AP review. The reason: While the U.S. wanted them out, no other country was willing to take them in. That’s currently the case of Vladas Zajanckauskas in Sutton, Massachusetts. It’s the case of Theodor Szehinskyj in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Of Jakiw Palij in New York City. And of John Kalymon in Troy, Michigan. All have been in the same areas for years, stripped of citizenship and ordered deported, yet able to carry out their lives in familiar surroundings. Dozens of other Nazi war crimes suspects in the U.S. were also entitled to Social Security and other public benefits for years as they fought deportation. The United States can deport people over evidence of involvement in Nazi war crimes, but cannot put such people on trial because the alleged crimes did not take place on American soil. In the 34 years since the Justice Department created an office to find and deport Nazi suspects, the agency has initiated legal proceedings against 137 people. Less than half — at least 66 — have been removed by deportation, extradition or voluntary departure. At least 20 died while their cases were pending. In at least 20 other cases, U.S. officials agreed not to pursue or enforce deportation orders.

Verdict reached in WikiLeaks court-martial

Workers board up windows outside of a McDonald’s restaurant in Kealakekua, Hawaii as Tropical Storm Flossie approched Sunday.

Flossie leaving Hawaii weaker than arrival HONOLULU (AP) — Flossie’s Hawaiian adventure: Short, scattered and more powerful than many believed it would be at first. National Weather Service officials say the tropical depression is expected to exit Hawaii today as a weakened version of the storm that prompted school and court closures and an emergency declaration from Gov. Neil Abercrombie before hitting shore. But hours after surfers caught waves on the Big Island and tourists sunbathed despite showers and overcast skies in Waikiki, Flossie made its mark on the state with widespread thunder and lightning, heavy rain and winds that knocked out power to thousands on several islands. Maui County officials said Monday night that widespread power outages were affecting water

service on many parts of Maui and Molokai,with no estimate of when power will be restored. Winds and rainfall from the faltering system earlier knocked out power for about 6,500 people on Maui and the Big Island. Forecasters said the thunderstorms could bring small hail to Oahu. The National Weather Service canceled all storm warnings for Tropical Storm Flossie in Hawaii on Monday evening, keeping a flash flood watch in effect statewide until tonight. The service later issued a flash flood warning for Maui, where live television footage showed thunder and lightning, fast-moving clouds and plenty of rain and wind. At one point, rain fell at rates of 4 inches per hour, and the service recommended people in low-lying areas move to higher ground.

Obama proposes ‘grand bargain’ for jobs WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is extending a new proposal to Republicans that he hopes will break the political gridlock on budget negotiations, offering to cut corporate tax rates in exchange for job investments. White House officials say just because they’re at an impasse with congressional Republicans over a grand

bargain on reducing the deficit doesn’t mean they shouldn’t look for other areas of agreement. So Obama plans to use a trip to an distribution center in Chattanooga, Tenn., today to propose a “grand bargain for middle-class jobs.” Obama long has called for a cut in corporate tax rates, but previously insisted such

business tax reform be coupled with an individual tax overhaul. He’s dropping that demand and says instead that he’s open to the corporate tax cut that businesses crave. But he wants it to be coupled with a significant investment on some sort of job creation program, such as manufacturing, infrastructure or community colleges.

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Pfc. Bradley Manning will learn this afternoon whether he will be convicted of aiding the enemy — punishable by life in prison without parole — for sending more than 700,000 government documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, a military judge said Monday. Col. Denise Lind said on the third day of deliberations that she will announce her verdict at 1 p.m today in Manning’s court-martial. The charge of aiding the enemy is the most serious of 21 counts Manning is contesting. He also is charged with eight federal Espionage Act violations, five federal theft counts, and two federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act violations, each punishable by up to 10 years; and five military counts of violating a lawful general regulation, punishable by up to two years each. Lind has tentatively scheduled a sentencing hearing beginning Wednesday. The sentencing phase could run for several weeks; each side has more than 20 potential witnesses. Manning is being tried by a judge alone, which was his choice. The trial began June 3. The 25-year-old native of Crescent, Okla., has admitted to sending more than 470,000 Iraq and Afghanistan battlefield reports, 250,000 State Department diplomatic cables, and other material including several battlefield video clips to WikiLeaks while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq in early 2010. WikiLeaks published most of the material online. The video included footage of a 2007 U.S. Apache helicopter attack in Baghdad that killed at least nine men, including a Reuters news photographer

and his driver. Manning claims he sent the material to expose war crimes and deceitful diplomacy. In closing arguments last week, defense attorney David Coombs portrayed Manning as a naive whistleblower who never intended the material to be seen by the enemy. Manning claims he selected material that wouldn’t harm troops or national security. Prosecutors called him an anarchist hacker and traitor who indiscriminately leaked classified information he had sworn to protect, knowing it would be seen by al-Qaida. They showed that al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden obtained copies of some of the documents WikiLeaks published before bin Laden was killed by U.S. Navy Seals in 2011. Manning pleaded guilty in February to 10 counts, including less-serious military versions of all the federal charges. His admitted offenses carry prison terms punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Prosecutors accepted one of his pleas and tried to prove him guilty of the greater offenses for the other nine counts. After sentencing, the verdict and sentence will be reviewed — and may be reduced — by the commander of the Military District of Washington, currently Maj. Gen. Jeffery S. Buchanan. If Buchanan approves a sentence that includes a bad-conduct discharge, a dishonorable discharge or confinement for a year or more, the case will be automatically reviewed by the Army Court of Criminal Appeals. Further appeals can be made to the military’s highest court, The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Oil washing onto Thai resort beach

The Associated Press

Workers remove crude oil on the beach of Prao Bay on Samet Island in Rayong province eastern Thailand on Monday. The oil spill that leaked from a pipeline has reached the popular tourist island in Thailand’s eastern sea despite continuous attempts to clean it up over the weekend, officials said Monday.

BANGKOK (AP) — Workers in white suits used buckets to scoop up globs of crude oil blackening the once white sands and emerald waters of a tourist island in Thailand’s eastern sea today, three days after the oil leaked from a nearby pipeline. Progress was being made on cleaning the oil that washed into Prao Bay on the west coast of Samet Island on Sunday night, though not fast enough, and rough seas and strong winds spread the oil to a rocky bay farther north, said Rayong deputy governor

Supeepat Chongpanish. “The most urgent issue is to get rid of the oil from the bay as soon as possible,” Supeepat said in a telephone interview. “The longer it stays on, the worse effect it will have on the people and environment.” Provincial authorities have declared Prao Bay a disaster zone, but said that more popular beaches on the island’s east coast remain untouched. About 13,200 gallons of oil — about the amount contained in one and a half tanker trucks — spilled into the Gulf of Thailand off Ray-

WORLD D I G E S T Talks show urgency for two-state solution WASHINGTON (AP) — Diplomats long have stressed the urgency of resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, yet as a new round of Mideast peace talks begins, Secretary of State John Kerry thinks there are more reasons than ever to move quickly. In Kerry’s thinking, time is running out. It would be difficult to remove a mushrooming number of Israeli settlements, which have doubled in the West Bank since 2000, The Associated Press even if Israel wanted to. The Palestinians are claiming that Pope Francis answers reporters questions during a news conference aboard the papal flight on its way back Arabs will outnumber Jews in from Brazil on Monday. the Holy Land by 2020. And last year, the U.N. General Assembly recognized a state of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem — a move that could let the Palestinians take their complaints over settlements to the International Criminal Court.

‘Who am I to judge?’ pope says of gay priests

EU’s top diplomat says need to move forward CAIRO (AP) — The European Union’s top diplomat says she discussed Egypt’s political crisis with deposed President Mohammed Morsi and the need for the country to move forward. EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton met with Morsi late Monday in the ousted Islamist leader’s first meeting with the outside world since he was overthrown by a military coup on July 3. He had been held incommunicado since his ouster. She said he “has access to information, in terms of TV and newspapers, so we were able to talk about the situation, and we were able to talk about the need to move forward.” She declined to elaborate.

79 percent of those hit by Sandy will rebuild A superstorm. A mile-wide tornado. A wildfire that killed 19 firefighters in seconds. These three crushing natural disasters, all in the past year, illustrate a new challenge facing policymakers: Should communities damaged by disaster rebuild in the same places,knowing the risks of the same thing happening again? Or should they encourage residents to move to safer ground? More Americans say they favor financial help for rebuilding than relocating, and both options draw even greater support among those hit hardest by Superstorm Sandy. A survey from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research examined resilience following last year’s superstorm, and found that among those living in the hardest-hit neighborhoods of New York and New Jersey, 79 percent said they favored government funding to help victims of such disasters rebuild in the same neighborhood. That doesn’t mean they’re opposed to policies encouraging relocation, though they are a bit less likely to back them.

ABOARD THE PAPAL AIRCRAFT (AP) — A remarkably candid Pope Francis struck a conciliatory stance toward gays Monday, saying “who am I to judge” when it comes to the sexual orientation of priests. “We shouldn’t marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society,” Francis said during an extraordinary 82-minute exchange with reporters aboard his plane returning from his first papal trip, to celebrate World Youth Day in Brazil. “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” the pope asked. Francis’ first news conference as pope was wideranging and open, touching

on everything from the greater role he believes women should have in the Catholic Church to the troubled Vatican Bank. While his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, responded to only a few preselected questions during his papal trips, Francis did not dodge a single query, even thanking the journalist who asked about reports of a “gay lobby” inside the Vatican and allegations that one of his trusted monsignors was involved in a gay tryst. Francis said he investigated the allegations against the clergyman according to canon law and found nothing to back them up. He took journalists to task for reporting on the matter, saying it concerned

issues of sin, not crimes like sexually abusing children. And when someone sins and confesses, he said, God not only forgives — he forgets. “We don’t have the right to not forget,” he said. While the comments did not signal a change in Catholic teaching that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered,” they indicated a shift in tone under Francis’ young papacy and an emphasis on a church that is more inclusive and merciful rather than critical and disciplinary. Francis’ stance contrasted markedly with that of Benedict, who signed a document in 2005 that said men who had deep-rooted homosexual tendencies should not be priests.

The company said it detected a leak when crude oil from a tanker moored offshore was being transferred to the pipeline, 11 miles from a refinery in Map Ta Phut, one of the largest industrial estates in Southeast Asia. The leak has since been fixed. The slick floated in the sea for more than a day before it began washing ashore on

Samet Island, a resort island popular with both foreign and domestic tourists due to its white sand beaches and its proximity to Bangkok, 90 miles away. “The black waves started rolling in since last night and by the morning the beach was all tainted with oil,” Kevin Wikul, the assistant front desk officer at a resort in Prao Bay, said Monday. He added that some guests requested early check-outs Monday. Authorities said it would take some time to assess the environmental damage.

Russian anti-gay laws impact vodka sales, Olympics NEW YORK (AP) — Russian vodka and the Winter Olympics in Sochi. For now, those are the prime targets as gays in the United States and elsewhere propose boycotts and other tactics to convey their outrage over Russia’s intensifying campaign against gay-rights activism. At many gay bars across North America, owners have joined a campaign to stop selling Russian vodka — notably the popular brand Stolichnaya. Activists also are pressing the International Olympic Committee and NBC, which holds U.S. broadcasting rights for Sochi, to be more aggressive in criticizing new Russian laws. So far, there have been only scattered calls for a fullfledged boycott of the Sochi Games, but there is active discussion of how to convey gay-rights messages once the competition begins — including gestures by individual athletes and perhaps a gay-pride parade. The chief flashpoint is a law signed by President Vladimir Putin last month that bans the “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations” and imposes hefty fines for providing information about the gay community to minors or holding gay pride rallies. Foreign citizens arrested under the law can be jailed for 15 days and then deported. There also is concern about a long-running problem of violence against gays in Russia, as well as a new law restricting adoptions of Russian children

by people in countries allowing same-sex marriage. The new laws were approved by parliament with overwhelming support, reflecting animosity toward gay activism that is widely shared across the political spectrum in Russia. Responding to the furor, the IOC said it has received assurances “from the highest level of government in Russia that the legislation will not affect those attending or taking part in the Games.” It pledged to ensure there would be no discrimination against athletes, officials, spectators and the media in Sochi. However, the Human Rights Campaign, a leading U.S. gay-rights group, said the IOC should take a stronger stand. “The New York Times, in an editorial Sunday, said the U.S. government “needs to be more forceful” in denouncing the new laws. “So does the International Olympic Committee, which too often fails to defend the Olympic ideals and should be leading a full-throated international campaign to insist that Russia repeal these laws,” the editorial said. NBC also is coming under pressure, including an open letter from the Human Rights Campaign saying it would be wrong to televise Sochi’s opening ceremonies without reporting on the anti-gay legislation. There seems to be little momentum for organizing a boycott of the Games.

At least 17 killed in air, mortar attacks in Syria DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Mortar attacks and air raids in two major cities in Syria killed at least 17 people, activists and government officials said today, as a Kurdish opposition leader was killed in the north. The deadliest attack struck the central city of Homs, which has been an opposition stronghold since the beginning of the twoyear conflict and is now the target of a withering offensive by President Bashar Assad’s forces. Three mortars slammed into a government-held district of Dablan before dawn today, killing 10 people and wounding 26 others, a government official. He said many living in the neighborhood fled there to escape fighting elsewhere in Homs. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations for civil servants. The Britain-based Syrian

Observatory for Human Rights said 11 people — including a child — were killed. The Observatory, citing hospital officials, also said attack happened late Monday close to midnight. Homs has been the center of protests against Assad’s rule since the Syrian revolt started in March 2011. In recent weeks, the city has been the scene of fierce fighting between Assad’s troops and rebels fighting to topple his regime. On Monday, government troops captured Homs’ strategic area of Khaldiyeh after a monthlong battle, bringing Assad’s regime closer to its goal of capturing all of Syria’s third largest city. In northern Syria, regime warplanes hit the town of Andan, killing seven people, including five children, the Observatory said. Much territory in the north and the northeast

along the borders with Turkey and Iraq has been under rebel control since last summer, when the opposition forces seized large swaths of land and several neighborhoods in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city. In the past months, Assad’s troops regrouped and have been battling rebels on multiple fronts, capturing strategic towns near the border with Lebanon and steadily regaining control of territory they previously lost to the opposition, including around the capital, Damascus, the seat of Assad’s power. The battlefield successes largely have been credited to the regime’s superior firepower, including heavy artillery and fighter jets, as well as battle-hardened fighters from Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group that have been fighting rebels alongside Syrian troops in recent weeks.

Unsettled Weather Moves Into The East

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate overwhelmingly confirmed James Comey on Monday to become FBI director, elevating the onetime Justice Department official who defied efforts by President George W. Bush’s White House to renew a program that allowed warrantless eavesdropping. Comey was approved 93-1 after one of the Senate’s conservatives leading abruptly ended delaying tactics that had blocked a vote

on the nomination. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., mentioned as a possible 2016 GOP presidential candidate, had been thwarting the vote over his concerns about the FBI’s domestic use of drones. Minutes before a showdown, Paul announced he would allow a vote on Comey, saying he’d received a letter from the FBI that answered his questions about drones. Paul was the only dissent. President Barack Obama nominated Comey, 52, in


to a minimum.” As part of this work, curb extensions will be installed at six intersections along 101, where Sherman and Sheridan meet California, Virginia and Washington avenues. Knife River also will replace some sections of old or damaged sidewalk along Sheridan Avenue. Knife River hopes to begin nighttime paving of that area sometime next month. But, Latham says, it is dependent on getting this portion of the project done first. “Curb extension has to be done before we can pave,” he said. “When we get most of that done we will start paving.” The project could be completed in that area by the end of September.

Construction will require some sidewalk closures, but they are creating alternate routes for pedestrians to get around the work zone. He says they also will make every effort to give advance notice to businesses before sidewalk replacement begins in front of their doors. “We appreciate everyone’s patience,” he added. “We are trying to keep the impact

About the time one North Bend project finishes, another ODOT project will be ramping-up in that area. Cathodic protection work on the north end of the McCullough Bridge is about to begin. Dan Latham, with ODOT Public Affairs, says cathodic work on the south side has already been completed. He says that kind of protection is designed to prevent corrosion around the cement portions of the bridge. Work on the north side of the bridge is expected to last four to five years. The Conde McCullough Bridge, named for its designer, first opened in 1936 and was the longest bridge in Oregon at the time. ”It’s been around almost 80 years,” Latham said. “We hope to have it in good shape for the next 80 years.”

Tavares Mayor Robert Wolfe said today that he was surprised to learn the hoses at the plant had to be manually activated. If Blue Rhino reopens the plant, Wolfe said he plans to raise the safety issue. “That way, it’s fail safe,” Wolfe said. “We’re lucky those tanks didn’t explode.” Croughwell said firefighters who responded to the initial fire had to wait to enter the plant site because conditions were so dangerous. Just as they were finally about to go in, four tractor trailers parked next to the large propane tanks caught fire. If the large tanks exploded, Croughwell said, “it would have wiped us out.” Video footage on WESHTV in Orlando showed fires burning through trucks used to transport propane tanks, which were parked at the plant. The fire sent plumes of smoke into the air hours after the blast. Keith said the explosions shook his house several miles from the plant. “It truly sounded like a car hit our house,” he said. Herrell said about 50 homes were evacuated Monday night but residents were allowed back about four hours later. Marni Whitehead, 33, who lives less than a mile from the plant, said she was in bed ready to go to sleep when she heard a loud boom. She ran outside and saw

Blasts ring out repeatedly Continued from Page A1 set up near the plant Monday night with skin hanging off their arms, torso and faces. He said their arms were outstretched and they were in complete shock. The Blue Rhino plant, which is northwest of Orlando, refilled propane tanks typically used for barbecues and other uses. There were some 53,000 20-gallon tanks at the plant Monday. Herrell said a crew of 24 to 26 people was working the overnight shift when the explosions occurred around 10:30 p.m. Monday. This morning, smoke still billowed from a storage container on the property, which consists of a couple of warehouses next to each other. The parking lot was littered with thousands of blackened 20-gallon propane containers. Nearby, three 33,000pound tanks of propane sat untouched. Lake County Battalion Chief Chris Croughwell said the hoses designed to spray water on the large tanks in case of fire, did not go off as planned because they had to be manually activated. “Most sane people don’t stick around for an event like this,” he added.

Babe Ruth All-Stars rally for regional victory THE WORLD CENTRALIA, Wash. — The South Coast All-Stars won their first game at the 13-15 Babe Ruth Regional Tournament on Monday, coming from behind in the seventh inning to top Wyoming 5-4. Wyoming took a 4-3 lead into the final inning. South Coast’s Colton Olson drew a lead-off walk and was replaced at first base by pinch runner Jared Hampel. Hampel stole second and moved

to third when Andrew Sharp hit the ball and the second baseman committed an error. Sharp then stole second and Marshall Rice was hit by a pitch, loading the bases. Hampel came home and Sharp moved up to third on a passed ball. Sharp scored the winning run when Kenny Thrall struck out, but the catcher couldn’t handle the pitch. He threw to first base to try to get Thrall, who beat the throw,and Sharp scampered home to end the game. “It was kind of an ugly game,”

said South Coast manager Rob Laskey. “We didn’t have too many hits. We just did what we had to at the end, finally.” South Coast took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning, but Wyoming scored three runs in the second, aided by two walks, a misplayed fly ball and a balk against South Coast pitcher Cory Chatelle. After that, Chatelle shut down Wyoming for the rest of of the game. “The kids were a nervous wreck,” Laskey said. “That’s out of their

system now. They finally started relaxing in the fourth or fifth inning. They did it.” Sharp, who had two hits and scored three runs, pulled South Coast within 4-3 in the fifth inning when he singled, stole second and third and came home on a sacrifice fly by Thrall. Sharp and Thrall scored in the first inning and Thrall finished the game with two RBIs, having driven in Sharp in the first inning. Under the schedule for the tour-

nament, South Coast is the team with a bye today in its five-team pool. South Coast plays Montana at 10 a.m. Wednesday. “I would rather be playing tomorrow,” Laskey said after Monday’s win. “I really would.” The top two teams in the pool advance to the bracket portion of the tournament Saturday.

Packers LB gets the call to Canton Dave Robinson won three championships with Green Bay from 1963 to 1974 ■

BY BARRY WILNER The Associated Press A short trip to Canton will follow Dave Robinson’s long wait to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Now a native of nearby Akron, Robinson will make the brief drive down an Ohio interstate this weekend and enter the hall on Saturday. His superb 12-season pro career ended in 1974 with three championship rings, but the ultimate recognition of his performances as one of the game’s most versatile linebackers didn’t come until this January. “That bust means an awful lot,” Robinson said. “That bust will last forever.” Packers coach Vince Lombardi, who drafted Robinson out of Penn State in the first round in 1963, once called him “as good as any defensive player.” Several of Robinson’s teammates who are in the hall, including Willie Davis, Herb Adderley and Ray Nitschke, claimed they would not have been so honored without Robinson on their side of the ball. Yet he had to wait nearly four decades to be voted in as a senior candidate. Rather than expressing any bitterness over the lengthy delay, Robinson has been as giddy about making the hall as if he had been unanimously chosen in his first year of eligibility. “I’ve been involved with the board of directors since 1980,” he said, “so I’ve been around the Hall of Fame a lot. I’ve never been on this side before. ... It’s a big thrill. “For every single man in the Hall of Fame, this is the last thing you’ll ever be elected to. People forget All-Pro teams and Pro Bowls, but they never forget the Hall of Fame.” Robinson never will forget the Packers’ string of three NFL titles, including winning the first two Super Bowls. He points to his 87-yard interception return at Baltimore as a highlight in 1965, when Green Bay beat Cleveland for the league crown. In 1966, the first season ending in a Super Bowl — then called the AFL-NFL championship — the Packers needed to hold on at Dallas to win the NFL title. Robinson ensured their trip to the championship match against AFL winner Kansas City by pressuring Cowboys quarterback Don

Making up for lost time Carpenter, a first-rounder in 2011, lost two seasons to injuries BY CURTIS CRABTREE The Associated Press


SEATTLE — After two seasons lost largely to knee injuries, James Carpenter is finally healthy and ready to prove he was worthy of the Seattle Seahawks selecting him with a first-round draft pick. The potential is obvious. Listed at 6-foot-5 and 321 pounds, Carpenter offers the kind of size no other lineman on Seattle’s roster does. No one can physically impose his will on an opposing player quite like Carpenter can when healthy. But knee injuries have reduced that potential to merely a massive tease through his first two seasons in the league. “He’s quick as a cat. Big dude, too ... strong. But I don’t know. It’s almost been two years minus a couple snaps last year that he wasn’t really healthy for. So we’ll see,” center Max Unger said. Carpenter feels he’s finally ready to

prove what he can be. He says he’s 100percent healthy and no longer has worries over the strength of his injured knee. “I’ve been hurt both years so I plan on playing this whole season this year,” Carpenter said. “That’s all I’ve got to prove is trying to get my respect from my teammates and stuff back. That’s why I’m working hard now.” Carpenter was selected by the Seahawks in the first round in 2011. Seattle originally intended on Carpenter becoming their long-term answer at right tackle. He started 11 games there as a rookie before tearing the ACL in his knee during a non-contract drill in practice. The injury lingered into last season as Carpenter was placed on the physically unable to perform list prior to training camp. Seattle also decided to change their plans for Carpenter as they elected to move him to left guard. He had been a left tackle at Alabama and felt more comfortable on that side of center. The team also thought he’d be more effective as an in-

line blocker than in space on the edge of the line. Carpenter remained on the PUP list throughout the preseason before somewhat surprisingly being kept on the Seahawks’ 53-man roster for the start of the regular season. Carpenter was healthy enough to be back in the lineup by Week 4 and started against the St. Louis Rams at guard. A concussion forced him to miss two more games midseason before another injury to his knee ended his season after just seven games played. Tom Cable, the Seahawks’ offensive line coach, still saw enough from Carpenter last season to feel confident in the switch to guard. “The issue is getting him — he’s a little bit like the new kids because he’s been out so long — to catch up,” Cable said. “He’s doing fine. He’s doing a really nice job of catching up with the older guys. Now that the injury is behind him it can be all about SEE CARPENTER | B3

MLB may use labor deal to suspend A-Rod BY RONALD BLUM The Associated Press

The Associated Press

Alex Rodriguez’s quest to get back on the baseball diamond may take another hit if Major League Baseball tries to suspend him under its collective bargaining agreement rather than its drug policy.

NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez may have to start serving a suspension as soon as it is announced rather than wait for a grievance to play out. Major League Baseball may try to suspend A-Rod under its collective bargaining agreement instead of its drug rules, which would eliminate any chance of delaying a penalty until after the case goes to an arbitrator, The Associated Press has learned. Rodriguez has never been disciplined for a drug offense, and a first offender under baseball’s Joint Drug Agreement is entitled to an automatic stay if the players’ association files a grievance — meaning the penalty is put on hold until after an arbitrator rules.

Rodriguez, who turned 38 Saturday, has not played this season following hip surgery in January. While use of banned performance-enhancing substances falls under the drug agreement, MLB may argue other alleged violations are punishable under the labor contract, a person familiar with management’s deliberations told the AP, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. Taking that action would prevent the New York Yankees third baseman from returning to the field, even if he recovers from a quadriceps injury cited by the team as the reason for keeping him on the disabled list.

Need to sell your vehicle?

And merely threatening to use that provision might give MLB leverage to force a deal. The Yankees expect Rodriguez to be accused of recruiting other athletes for the clinic, of attempting to obstruct MLB’s investigation, and of not being truthful with MLB in the past when he discussed his relationship with Dr. Anthony Galea, who pleaded guilty two years ago to a federal charge of bringing unapproved drugs into the United States from Canada. Four years ago, Rodriguez admitted using PEDs while with

Texas from 2001-03. He has repeatedly denied using them since. Baseball has been investigating Rodriguez and other players since a January report in the Miami New Times alleging they received PEDs from Biogenesis of America, a closed anti-aging clinic on Florida. “We’re still involved in the process of preparing for an eventual appeal in this matter,” Rodriguez’s lawyer, David Cornwell, said Monday on ESPN New York Radio. “My understanding is that the next step that is going to be taken is that the players’ association and baseball will meet to discuss the investigation and baseball’s focus on particular players. So we’ll see how SEE A-ROD | B2

Pittsburgh edges closer to NL Central lead BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITTSBURGH — Francisco Liriano allowed one run over seven dominant innings, Pedro Alvarez hit his NL-leading 27th home run and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 9-2 Monday night. Liriano (11-4) struck out eight and walked just two to win his fifth straight start. The Pirates kicked off the key series at PNC Park by sending the Cardinals to their fourth straight loss to pull within a half-game of the lead in the NL Central. Clint Barmes doubled twice and drove in two runs for Pittsburgh. Andrew

A-ROD Will he lose 2013 and 2014 season? From Page B1 that process plays out. But at this point my understanding or my expectation is that we’re going to be working through the process towards an appeal.” Rodriguez could be punished under Article XII (B) of the Basic Agreement, which states: “Players may be disciplined for just cause for conduct that is materially detrimental or materially prejudicial to the best interests of baseball including, but not limited to, engaging in conduct in violation of federal, state or local law.” If suspended under that section, Rodriguez would serve the penalty while a grievance is litigated before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz — unless the union asks for a stay and the arbitrator grants one, which would be unusual under the grievance procedure. And baseball could always try to punish A-Rod on drug violations later. It would be difficult for Commissioner Bud Selig to remove the arbitrator from the process. A provision in Article XI gives the commissioner permission to rule instead of the arbitrator on a complaint “involving the preservation of the integrity of, or the maintenance of public confidence in, the game of baseball.” But a letter from Selig that is Attachment 1 states: “I understand that the players’ association has expressed concern that the commissioner might take some action pursuant to Article XI (A) (1) (b) of the Basic Agreement which could negate rights of players under the new Basic Agreement. While I have difficulty seeing that this is a real problem, I am quite willing to assure the association that the commissioner will take no such action.” In addition, if Selig attempted to bypass the arbitrator, the union would have the right to reopen the labor contract with respect to that provision. Cornwell would not respond to a report in the New York Daily News on Monday that said Selig would not pursue a lifetime ban if

Rodriguez accepted a suspension through 2014. “There’s been all sorts of reports, all sorts of sources and all sorts of breaking news and breathless coverage, and I don’t feel any need to respond to any of it,” Cornwell told ESPN. In announcing Ryan Braun’s 65-game suspension last week, MLB cited violations of both the labor contract and drug agreement. A person familiar with that deal, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized, said 50 games of the penalty for the 2011 NL MVP were connected to Biogenesis. The additional 15 games stemmed from the Milwaukee outfielder’s actions during the grievance that overturned his October 2011 positive test for testosterone. Cornwell represented Braun in the 2012 hearing before arbitrator Shyam Das, but said he was not involved in Braun’s agreement to be suspended. Rodriguez, who turned 38 Saturday, has not played this season following hip surgery in January. The three-time AL MVP, fifth on the career list with 647 home runs, appeared to be on the verge of rejoining New York on July 22, but the Yankees said a day earlier that an MRI revealed a strained quadriceps. Rodriguez pushed to be activated last Friday, but the Yankees said he wouldn’t even resume a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment until Aug. 1. Rodriguez then went on a New York radio station to criticize the team’s decision. The Miami New Times story was prompted by information provided by Porter Fischer, an ex-Biogenesis employee. “What’s been made public are various documents that a disgruntled ex-employee of Biogenesis allegedly stole. I would imagine we’ll spend time talking with the arbitrators about the documents and things of that nature, their authenticity, their relevancy, the reliability,” Cornwell told ESPN. Gary Smith, a spokesman for Fischer, responded in an email: “Cornwell can get in line with many others who want to attack Porter Fischer for exposing the truth and is left without support. He did it because it was the right thing to do.”

off Edgmer Escalona in the 10th inning, and Atlanta won its fourth straight game. After Uggla led off with a walk, Simmons hit the ball too deep into the gap in left-center field for Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler to keep it from reaching the wall. Scott Downs (1-0) earned the win after being acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Angels earlier in the day and arriving at Turner Field not long before the first pitch. The left-hander allowed one hit and struck out one in 1 1-3 innings. Gonzalez went 5-for-5 with two RBIs after missing the last three games with a sprained middle right finger.

David Aardsma (2-0) pitched an inning in relief of Jeremy Hefner for the win. Bobby Parnell retired Giancarlo Stanton with runners on first and third to end it for his 21st save in 25 opportunities. Miami’s Jacob Turner was in line for the win when he was pulled with a 5-3 lead after 6 1-3 innings. But Miami relievers Mike Dunn and A.J.

Brewers 5, Cubs 0: Carlos Gomez broke a scoreless tie in the ninth inning with an RBI single and Jeff Bianchi added a two-run double to lift Milwaukee over Chicago.

The Brewers, sitting in last place in the NL Central, won for the third time in eight games and ended the Cubs’ winning streak at three games.

Home plate umpire Jerry Meals, left, ejects Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell in the eighth inning of a baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays in Boston on Monday. The Rays won 2-1.

Rays slide into first in AL East BOSTON (AP) — David Price allowed just two hits over 7 1-3 innings to beat the Boston Red Sox for the second time in six days, and Tampa Bay won 2-1 on Monday night to retake first place in the AL East. Price (6-5) was dominating the makeup game before it was delayed for 39 minutes because of a brief downpour that arrived as fans were singing “Sweet Caroline” and he was warming up for the bottom of the eighth. The Rays left-hander stayed in the game, but retired just one batter — after starting him out with three straight balls — before Joel Peralta relieved him. Ryan Lavarnway doubled off the Green Monster, but pinch-runner Daniel Nava couldn’t score when Stephen Drew’s line drive went over right fielder Wil Myers’ head for a double. Nava tagged on Brandon Snyder’s fly ball to short left-center, but he was called out by home plate umpire Jerry Meals even though replays showed that Nava’s leg got the plate before the tag. Red Sox manager John Farrell was ejected arguing

Former Boston All-Star, George ‘Boomer’ Scott, dies GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) — George “Boomer” Scott, a three-time All-Star first baseman who hit 271 homers in a 14year major-league career and is a member of the Red Sox hall of fame, has died. He was 69. Washington County coroner Methel Johnson confirmed Scott died on Sunday in Greenville, Miss., his hometown. A three-time All-Star, Scott spent most of his career with the Boston Red Sox and Milwaukee Brewers. He hit 27 homers with 90 RBIs during his rookie season in 1966 — second for a Red Sox rookie only to Ted Williams — and had his best year with the Brewers in 1975, when he hit 36 homers and had 109 RBIs. The Red Sox all-time leader for first basemen in games played, Scott was inducted into the franchise’s hall of fame in 2006. The Red Sox observed a moment of silence at Fenway Park before Monday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays. “In losing George Scott, we have lost one of the most talented, colorful, and popular players in our history,” Red Sox historian Dick Bresciani said. “He had

great power and agility, with a large personality and a large physical stature. He could light up a clubhouse with his smile, his laugh, and his humor — and he was the best defensive first baseman I have ever seen. We will miss him, and we send our condolences to his family.” Scott was listed at 6-foot-2 and over 200 pounds in his playing days, but he was surprising nimble in the field. He won eight Gold Gloves — third all-time among first basemen behind only Keith Hernandez and Don Mattingly — including five with the Brewers. “This is a very sad day for all of us connected to the Brewers,” the team said in a statement. “George Scott was charismatic, an early star of the team and one of the finest defensive players in the game. ‘Boomer,’ as he was affectionately known to fans, will be remembered as a colorful player on and off the field and his five Gold Glove Awards as a Brewer are an accomplishment that will be difficult to top. The entire Brewers community wishes to express their condolences to the Scott family.”

Price allowed just Ortiz’s double high off the Green Monster to lead off the second inning and Snyder’s 302foot fly ball off the Pesky Pole for a home run in the sixth. That was the only runner to get past second base against Price, who walked none and struck out eight to win for the fifth time in six starts since coming off the disabled list on July 2. Indians 3, White Sox 2: Pinch-hitter Jason Giambi homered over the center field wall leading off the ninth

inning to give the Cleveland Indians their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night. Giambi, batting for struggling Mark Reynolds, belted a 1-1 pitch from Ramon Troncoso (1-3) high over the wall and into the bushes in center. It was the 436th career homer and ninth career walk-off shot for the slugger, who had a bucket of water dumped over his head by teammates after the game. Chris Perez (3-1) pitched the ninth, allowing a two-out triple to Dayan Viciedo. He got out of the inning when left fielder Michael Brantley made a nice catch for the third out. The Indians moved within 2 1-2 games of the idle Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. The sinking White Sox have lost four straight and 10 of 13. Athletics 9, Blue Jays 4: Yoenis Cespedes homered and hit a two-run triple, Josh Reddick added a two-run double and had three RBIs, and Oakland beat Toronto. Jed Lowrie singled home a run and Josh Reddick hit a sacrifice fly in Oakland’s four-run first inning.

Cespedes led off the eighth with his 16th home run, snapping a career-worst 25game homerless streak for the Home Run Derby champion. Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run homer, while Adam Lind and Brett Lawrie each hit solo shots against A.J. Griffin (10-7), who retired the first 13 batters of the game. Esmil Rogers (3-5) was tagged for eight runs — six earned — on nine hits in 4 1-3 innings. Rangers 4, Angles 3: Geovany Soto hit a gameending homer after A.J. Pierzynski went deep to tie the game earlier in the ninth off closer Ernesto Frieri, and Texas snapped a four-game skid. Pierzynski led off by pulling a pitch into the rightfield seats, his 11th homer this season which snapped a 4-for-27 slump. Nelson Cruz followed with a single off Frieri (0-3) before David Murphy grounded into a double play. Soto, who entered the game hitting only .198 this season, then hit a towering flyball to left that easily cleared the wall.

Giants visit the White House WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says the San Francisco Giants are making a “habit” of dropping in at the White House. Obama welcomed the 2012 World Series champions Monday at a South Lawn ceremony honoring their victory and their community service work. The Giants swept the World Series in October, defeating the Detroit Tigers 4-3 in the final game after nearly being knocked out earlier in the playoffs. The president says their second title in three seasons was because of stellar pitching, defense and timely hitting. But Obama didn’t predict that finish. On the campaign trail last year, he anticipated a World Series between the White Sox and the Washington Nationals. The crowd of well-wishers included Giants Hall of Famer Willie Mays, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee.

Gibbons said Monday in Oakland he isn’t making contingency plans in the case that Cabrera receives another suspension. “We don’t think anything’s going to happen,” Gibbons said. “Major League Baseball is handling all that, so we don’t know. We think, because he served his time, it’s over with. I haven’t given it much thought and the GM hasn’t talked much about it.” Cabrera was handed a 50game suspension on last Aug. 15.

Star witness Mike McQueary appeared in a courtroom for the third time since Sandusky’s November 2011 arrest.

CHICAGO (AP) — Stuart Holden’s run of major injuries just won’t stop. The U.S. national team midfielder tore his right anterior cruciate ligament early in the Americans’ 1-0 victory over Panama in the Gold Cup final on Sunday. He will consult with the medical staffs of U.S. Soccer and of the Bolton Wanderers, his England-based club, to formulate a treatment plan. “We are absolutely devastated for Stuart,” U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. “He is such a great part of our team on the field and in the locker room. He worked tremendously hard to recover from previous injuries and had really come back into form. “He was fully prepared to head back to Bolton and challenge for a starting spot. Now he will have our full support as he goes down this road again, and we will be with him every step of the way.” Holden collided with Panama’s Alberto Quintero and took a knock on his left knee 18 minutes into the first half, but he grabbed his right knee after he hit the ground. Trainers worked with him briefly on the field before he

got off and walked to the sideline, where they continued to work on him. As Holden sat on the bench, his head buried in his hands, teammates patted him on the head and shoulders trying to console him. He walked to the locker room a short time later, and was limping visibly when he rejoined his teammates for the victory ceremony. He later posted a photo of himself on Twitter drinking from the Gold Cup trophy. Holden’s recent history has been a painful one. He broke his right leg on a vicious tackle by the Netherlands’ Nigel de Jong in March 2010. He hurt his left knee against Manchester United from Jonny Evans’ tackle a year later. Holden returned from surgery for a League Cup match against Aston Villa that September, then needed more surgery eight days later. He was out until January of this year, returning for three substitute appearances for Bolton, then four starts during a one-month loan to Sheffield on Wednesday, and another last-minute cameo for Bolton.

CARPENTER From Page B1 football again and he should come along pretty quick.” It’s the first time in three years Carpenter has been on the field for the start of training camp. He missed the start of his rookie campaign in a brief contract holdout before the knee injury forced him to miss all of last year’s camp. Carpenter has been forced to watch his teammates practice from the sidelines frequently all too often. Just being able to be back out on a football field has been long overdue. “I felt great out there.Pretty rusty but I’m just glad I’m out here working with the team again,” Carpenter said. Carpenter has been rotating in with the first-team offensive line throughout the first four days of training camp and is battling with Paul McQuistan to earn the starting job.

Ditka praised Robinson’s reliability, saying the linebacker “was as dependable as they come, didn’t make mistakes. Lombardi liked that, for sure.” It puzzles Robinson to think about those players getting into the hall quickly, but he doesn’t bemoan the delay. “Why I had to wait so long I can’t answer,” he said. “I knew who I played against — about every tight end in the Hall of Fame — and I can compare my career with them. Those guys are Hall of Famers and I know I was in the same sentence with them, but I wasn’t elected.” Until January. On Saturday, he becomes a Hall of Famer in the shrine’s 50th year. “It is very special,” the 72year-old Robinson said. “I entered the NFL in 1963, so it’s my 50th anniversary of being in the NFL. The Hall of Fame and I started at the same time. “My first granddaughter was born on Aug. 3, so we can celebrate her (18th) birthday and my induction.

Knock your socks off good Grown-up ingredients mean grilled cheese sandwiches aren’t just for kids anymore BY W. WAYT GIBBS The Associated Press

When I was a child, I thought like a child, I ate like a child: PB&Js, BLTs and grilled cheese sandwiches made from slices of Velveeta melted to gooey perfection between two slices of skillettoasted white bread. But when I became an adult, I put away childish things. I grew out of Velveeta and Wonder bread. Grilled cheese sandwiches, however, are forever — assuming you know how to update them for a more grown-up palate. Begin by using better bread. In place of the squishy white stuff, try something with more substance: a flavorful sourdough, sweet brioche, or crunchy baguette, for example. Buy a loaf, and slice it yourself into slabs about half an inch think (or halve the baguette lengthwise). The slices should be substantial enough to hold everything together but not so bulky that they overwhelm the flavor of the sandwich. Next, add some interesting texture or flavors to the filling. Thin slices of sweet apple and spicy jalapenos complement sourdough slices nicely. The brioche makes a delicious and filling breakfast or brunch when stuffed with sliced ham, sauteed mushrooms and a fried egg. A baguette yields a bruschetta-like grilled cheese sandwich when dressed with fresh basil leaves, pesto and tomato confit. The star in this show, of course,

is the cheese. You can use the fanciest, stinkiest, crumbliest cheese your heart desires if you borrow a trick from the food scientists at Kraft. Flip over a box of Velveeta and you’ll find there, listed among the other ingredients, the reason that it slices so easily and melts so uniformly: sodium citrate. This white, crystalline ingredient looks like salt, and in fact it is a salt — a salt of citric acid, which is a natural component of citrus fruits. You can buy sodium citrate at some brewer supply stores or order it readily online. I keep a big jar of the stuff in my pantry because it is so useful for making cheese sauces for pasta, nachos or fondue. Just dissolve 11 grams of sodium citrate into 11⁄8 cups of milk or water over medium heat, bring to a simmer, and gradually whisk or blend in 285 grams of finely grated cheese (3 to 4 cups, depending on the kind of cheese and coarseness of the grater). As the cheese melts, the sodium citrate serves as an emulsifier and prevents the fat from splitting off to form a greasy slick on top. The recipes below riff on this technique to make a thicker cheese sauce that sets into an even sheet, perfect for cutting into slices and adding to sandwiches. Use whatever kind or blend of cheeses and liquids you want (cold wheat beer works well in place of water). Add the weights of the cheese and liquid, and multiply the total by 0.028 to get the amount of sodium citrate to use. For example, you can make 500

grams of emulsified cheese (enough for 12 to 14 slices) by blending 14 grams of sodium citrate into 115 milliliters of cold wheat beer, simmering, and blending in 200 grams (3 cups) of grated Gruyere and 180 grams (3 cups) of grated sharp cheddar. Poured into a warm baking sheet and covered with plastic wrap, the cheese becomes solid after about two hours in the refrigerator. The slices, when individually wrapped in plastic or parchment paper, will keep for up to two months in the freezer. They thaw quickly, so when you get that Sunday afternoon urge for a quick grilled cheese blast from the past, you can recreate a fond memory from childhood in no time. If possible, weigh the cheese in the recipes below rather than relying on volume measurements; volumes can vary greatly with the kind of cheese and fineness of grating.


Start to finish: 21⁄2 hours (30 minutes active) Makes 4 sandwiches For the cheese slices: 3 teaspoons sodium citrate 1 ⁄2 cup water 6 cups (380 grams) aged white cheddar cheese, grated For the sandwich: Butter 8 slices sourdough bread, about

side. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone baking mat, or oil the sheet lightly, and heat it in an oven set to its lower temperature. The larger the baking sheet, the thinner the cheese slices will be. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sodium citrate in the water, then bring to a simmer. Add the grated cheese to the simmering water a handful at a time while whisking or blending with an immersion blender until all of the cheese is completely melted and smooth. Pour the melted cheese onto the warmed baking sheet. Tip the sheet back and forth to form a single layer of even thickness. Cover the cheese layer with plastic wrap, and place it in the refrigerator until set, about 2 hours. Slice the cheese into pieces sized to fit your bread slices. When ready to prepare the sandwiches, heat a large, heavy skillet over medium. Alternatively, heat a sandwich grill or panini press. Butter the outward-facing sides of each bread slice, assemble the sandwiches, each with a slice of cheese, a slice of apple and a bit of the jalapenos. Add a sandwich to the skillet and panfry until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes per

Cuisine Riesling: Oregon’s best kept secret BY DAVID WHITE If you play word association with a wine enthusiast and throw out the word “Oregon,” chances are pretty high that the response will be “Pinot Noir.” For good reason. In the 1960s, a handful of young vintners moved to the state, all passionate about wine and eager to be a part of something new. Within a decade, those who believed Oregon’s climate would be too cold and wet for grapes were proven wrong when a Pinot Noir from one of those trailblazers, David Lett, took home gold at the 1979 Wine Olympics in WHITE’S Paris. Over the WINE next 30 years, hundreds of winemakers set up shop in Oregon, eager to produce world-class Pinot Noir. Today, the state’s wine industry promotes itself with posters and other promotional items that say “Drink Pinot, Think Oregon.” But while Lett and other pioneers were focusing on Pinot Noir, a number of other vintners were giving it a go with Riesling. Indeed, about a quarter of Oregon’s vineyards were planted to Riesling in 1980. As Pinot Noir acreage exploded, however, Riesling became overshadowed. Today, though, Oregon Riesling is experiencing a resurgence. And it’s better than ever. Many consumers recoil at the sight of Riesling, as it’s still associated with the sweet, simple German wines of yesteryear, like Blue Nun. Wines like these do a disservice to true Riesling. It’s not by accident that Riesling has long been known as the “noblest of the noble grapes.” For one thing, Riesling is honest.

Because most Riesling is fermented in stainless steel, it isn’t manipulated through oak aging or other winemaking techniques. So it’s remarkably transparent and excels in capturing terroir,or a wine’s sense of place. As Robert Parker, the world’s most famous wine critic, once explained, “If you want to talk about terroir, talk about German Rieslings or Alsace Rieslings, where the wines are naked — there’s no makeup.” Riesling is also quite versatile. Some of the world’s best Rieslings are syrupy and lusciously sweet, while others are bone dry.Most fall somewhere in between, and all are extremely fragrant. And thanks to its high acidity, Riesling is an extremely adaptable food wine. Misconceptions still abound, but fortunately, consumers are starting to recognize that Riesling is a serious grape. I recently tasted through a dozen Oregon Rieslings and was impressed with all them. One bottle worth finding is Chehalem’s “Three Vineyard Riesling.” Marked by exotic citrus fruits, green apples, and chalk-like minerality, the wine is exceptionally vibrant. Other wines worth looking for include Amity Vineyards’ Wedding Dance Riesling,Penner-Ash’s Willamette Valley Riesling and Elk Cove’s Estate Riesling. All are refreshing and delicious, offering delicate notes of citrus fruits and apples. These four wines do have quite a bit of residual sugar, but they almost taste dry because they’re balanced by bracing acidity. Plus, they’re affordable. While these producers are known for their Pinot Noir, these Rieslings can be found for right around $20. Riesling might be Oregon’s best kept secret. So make sure you try some before the word gets out. David White is the founder and editor of, which was named “Best Overall Wine Blog” at the 2013 Wine Blog Awards.


Where in The World? — Trinity Alps

Contributed photo

Roy Mollier of North Bend gets the award so far for highest point for a Where in The World? submission. He wrote,“Just took my World to Thompson Peak — 8,994-feet — it’s the highest peak in the Trinity Alps in Northern California. A very rugged hike caused me and my paper to get a little wrinkled. Remote Mirror Lake can be seen below the paper.

Where in The World? If you are going on vacation, take an edition of The World with you. When you find yourself in a picturesque spot as Roy did in Northern California, snap your family/group with the

paper. Then, when you visit a local restaurant, get a picture of your meal. Send the vital information: your name and hometown, the city you visited, the restaurant,

Going local Live Nation to bring local food to its concerts BY J.M. HIRSCH The Associated Press This just might be music to foodies’ ears. One of the nation’s premier concert promoters is overhauling its concessions to serve only local produce and humanely-raised meats. Live Nation announced Wednesday that starting this week all produce served at its 38 amphitheaters around the country will be sourced from within about a 100-mile radius of each venue. Additionally, all meats — some 285,000 burgers, 260,000

hot dogs and 280,000 chicken tender meals per year — will carry either Certified Humane, Global Animal Partnership or Animal Welfare Approved certification. The change will cost the company about an extra $1 million a year, but concertg o e r s won’t see t h a t reflected in food or ticket prices, says Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino. He believes the good will generated by serving better food and supporting local farms will be compensation enough. “That’s good for business in the long run, and good for the environment and the animals in the short run,” he says. Additionally, the company has brought on celebrity chef Hugh Acheson as a consultant to help guide the changes. Acheson, an outspoken proponent of local and sustainable agriculture, is best known for appearances on Bravo’s “Top Chef” and “Top Chef Masters.” He says he is fascinated by the challenge of providing ethically sourced food on such a large scale. The overhaul was triggered when Live Nation officials decided to offer a vegetarian option at their amphitheaters. “As we dug into it, what came second to us was that what’s important

isn’t just what’s on the menu, but the supply chain behind it,” Rapino says. “And if it’s going to be local and we’re going to look at the supply chain, let’s make sure we’re doing the right thing and make sure the animals are treated well before they get to market.” The vegetarian option — a rice bowl with vegetables and possibly tofu being developed by Acheson — will be added to menus later this

summer. Healthier choices are being planned, as well. The move comes as sports arenas around the country continue to overhaul their own food offerings to better appeal to America’s growing appetite for good grub. For several years now, ballparks and other stadiums have been touting their own healthier and gourmet choices, from sushi to fine wines to artisanal sausages and Dungeness crab salad.

SANDWICH Melted cheese makes slices Continued from Page C1 cheese is completely melted and smooth. Pour the melted cheese onto the warmed baking sheet. Tip the sheet back and forth to form a single layer of even thickness. Cover the cheese layer with plastic wrap, and place it in the refrigerator until set, about 2 hours. Slice the cheese into pieces sized to fit your bread slices.

When ready to prepare the sandwich, heat a large, heavy skillet over medium. Alternatively, heat a sandwich grill or panini press. Cut the baguette into 4 segments, each about 4 inches long, then slice each segment in half lengthwise. Lightly butter the crust of each baguette slice, then assemble the sandwiches, using a bit of pesto, a slice of cheese, a bit of sun-dried tomatoes and 2 to 3 basil leaves per sandwich. Panfry each sandwich until the crust is toasted and the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes on a side.

Carrie Underwood, whose singing career started when she won “American Idol” in 2005, said, “If something can be said to make an awkward moment even worse, I’m going to say it.” Some bridge bids are intended primarily to make the next player’s position awkward. And in this deal there were several uncomfortable moments. How would you critique the auction? What should happen in five spades after West leads the diamond ace? After North’s one-diamond open-

ing, South, with a game-going hand, planned to bid first clubs, then spades, then spades again to show his 5-6. Next, West made a three-heart weak jump overcall when four hearts would have been better. If East had a heart fit, they would have taken a lot of tricks; if East was very short in hearts, West was already in trouble. It was sensible for North to rebid four clubs; South rated to have at least five. And the singleton heart looked good. Now East made a really aggressive bid with five hearts. However, South continued with five spades, strongly suggesting at least 5-6 in the black suits. And that silenced everyone. West led the diamond ace, but then did not know what to do. If South had the last diamond, West could continue with the diamond two, a suit-preference signal for clubs. But with this layout, West had to shift to the heart two (again, suit preference) to get the key club ruff. Since East’s five-heart jump strongly suggested a shapely hand with a singleton or void, West understandably led the diamond two at trick two, so the contract made with an overtrick. Tough!

WEDNESDAY, JULY 31, 2013 An interesting change in your social life could be in the offing in the year ahead. You might meet and become involved with some rather eccentric individuals who will be considerably different from the old pals you’re used to. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Certain things that are significant to you might not be of equal interest to your friends. Pushing your opinions on them regardless of this fact could make them feel very uncomfortable. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Even if it causes you some inconvenience, honor your commitments. Your gesture will be appreciated, and you may even learn not to be so impulsive next time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Guard against a strong inclination to force rules and directives on your co-workers that you would never follow yourself. Set a

good example and remember to be reasonable. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — There is a high probability that you could form a strong attraction to someone that is likely to end just as abruptly as it begins. Do your best to see people for who they really are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Things should go rather smoothly for you, provided you’re not too indecisive. Think ahead as much as you can and stick to the plans that you make. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)— A poor attitude generally brings bad results, and today will be no exception. If you treat distasteful tasks resentfully, chances are you’ll end up having to do them all over again. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Although you generally are a lucky gambler, there is a possibility you might be tempted to take a chance on something that you know is impossible.You’ll lose. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Be extremely careful not to treat your colleagues or partners in a brusque manner. You may

want to unload on them, but it will only end up making everybody angry. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Someone who is skilled at uncovering information that should be kept private may get you to reveal something that you promised to keep to yourself. Be on your toes. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You may find a frivolous activity intriguing, despite its high cost. You’re likely to take part, so you need to make sure that you get your money’s worth. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — When promoting an interest of yours, be careful how you behave in front of others. Your image is a bit fragile, and you wouldn’t want to appear selfish. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — This is not a good day to debate controversial issues. You’re prone to blurting things out that would be better left unsaid, and you could even say something that would leave a lasting scar.

How to book a hotel room for less The secret to grabbing a great hotel accommodation at a price far less than the company’s “rack rate” is to understand these simple truths: Hotels EVERYDAY r e CHEAPSKATE abound to h a v e nights w h e n t h e y h a v e empty rooms. Empty rooms do not Mary generate Hunt c a s h f l o w. Someone in that establishment is directly responsible to see that as many rooms as possible are generating some amount of income, every night. Here are the steps to follow to help that hotel meet its goals and get a great bargain at the same time. NAIL DOWN THE EXACT HOTEL AND SPE C IFIC LOC AT ION W HERE YOU WISH TO BOOK A ROOM. Going online is the easiest way to figure out your choices. Find that specific location’s local telephone number. KNOW THE GOING RATE OF ROOMS AT TH IS SPECIFIC LOCATION. You can find this online at the hotel’s site. Then visit B i d d i n g Fo r Trave l .c o m . T h i s i s a s i te wh e re Priceline and Hotwire bidders disclose their winning bids, along with the name of the hotel they landed. The information that others have posted here will give you a good sense about the rate you may be able to negotiate. Notice the wide range or rates others have paid. This should give you confidence that the hotel will let rooms go for bargain rates to keep the place full. The best time to snag a great deal on a hotel room is at 4 p.m., local time on Sunday. This is when you will have the best shot at speaking with the employee whose job depends on keeping rooms filled, who can also negotiate room rates. But this can be tricky, so here are the steps to follow: CALL THE LOCAL PHONE NUMBER. Do not call the hotel’s 800 number. That will connect you to a b i g c l ea r i n g h o u se t h a t books rooms for hundreds of locations. The people who answer those phones do not have the authority to g ive yo u a b e t te r d ea l . Instead, call the specific hotel’s local direct line. Go online or call directory assistance to get the local phone number for the specific location where you’d like to stay. DO NOT ASK FOR THE RE SERV AT IONS DE PART MENT, which will only get you routed back through to the 800 number clearinghouse you are trying to avoid. Instead, ask to speak to the manager on duty, who at this time of day on the weekend will probably be a lower-level employee. This is the person on duty who has the authority to negotiate rates and book rooms. This is better for you than calling during the week when you will be connected to a “revenue manager” who is more interested in keeping the rates high. BE V ERY COU RE TOUS. Say that you are shopping for accommodations during a specific week at a great rate, followed by, “What can you do for me?” See yourself as a valuable commodity at this moment because you will take an unsold room out of inventory, which represents job security for the person yo u ’re s p ea k i n g w i t h . That’s it. You’ve cut out all of the middlemen and just given yourself the very best shot at bagging a bargain hotel reservation. Use this opportunity well and to your fullest advantage. You’re doing the hotel and yourself a great service. Mary Hunt is the founder of, a personal finance member website. You can email her at m, or write to Everyday Cheapskate, P.O.
