Firefighters set brush on fire Tuesday afternoon near The Dalles. The fire continued to spread through timberlands, ranches and orchards interspersed with canyons on the northern flanks of Mount Hood.

U.S. Forest Service burning through money fighting fires BY JEFF BARNARD The Associated Press GRANTS PASS — Running out of money to fight wildfires at the peak of the season, the U.S. Forest Service is diverting $600 million from timber, recreation and other areas to fill the gap. The nation’s top wildfire-fighting agency was down to $50 million after spending $967 million so far this year, Forest Service spokesman Larry Chambers said Wednesday in an email. Chambers says the $50 million the Forest Service has left is typically


Feds running out of wildfire money enough to pay for just a few days of fighting fires when the nation is at its top wildfire preparedness level, which went into effect Tuesday. There are 51 large uncontained fires burning across the nation, making it tough to meet demands for fire crews and equipment. Forest Service Chief Thomas Tidwell sent a letter Aug. 16 to regional foresters

and other top officials telling them to come up with the cuts by Friday. “I recognize that this direction will have significant effects on the public whom we serve and on our many valuable partners, as well as agency operations, target accomplishments and performance,” he wrote. “I regret that we have to take this action and fully understand that it only increases costs and reduces efficiency.” It was the sixth time the Forest Service has had to divert funds since 2002,

Amnesty opposition is lacking BY ERICA WERNER The Associated Press RICHMOND, Va. — It was the kickoff of a “Stop Amnesty Tour” organized by the Tea Party Patriots and other groups. But the crowd was so sparse that immigrant advocates were soon gleefully circulating photos of the featured speaker, Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa, standing alone on an empty stage. The rally at a public park in Richmond, Va., earlier this month, along with the subsequent cancellation or postponement of several similar events, points to an emerging reality during Congress’ five-week summer recess: Opposition to overhauling immigration laws appears notably muted, almost tame. Meanwhile, advocates who support comprehensive overhaul legislation are claiming they’ve changed at least a handful of minds among House Republicans. During Congress’ last attempt to remake the immigration system, in 2007, public backlash helped kill the bill as angry calls overwhelmed the Senate switchboard. This summer, other issues, notably President Barack Obama’s health care law, seem to be topping the list of voters’ concerns. Constituents opposed to citizenship for immigrants in this country illegally are loudly voicing their views at Republican House members’ town hall meetings this month. But advocates of immigration legislation that offers a path to citizenship are having some success getting their supporters to show up, too, even in heavily Republican districts. “In a sort of immediate sense, Obamacare is what the party has decided they want to make a big deal of in these town halls, so that’s frankly siphoning off a lot of outrage because the people ticked off about Obamacare are the same people ticked off about amnesty,” said Mark Krikorian, executive

CAIRO — Egypt’s ousted leader Hosni Mubarak was released from prison Thursday and transported to a military hospital in a Cairo suburb where he will be held under house arrest, according to state TV. Prime Minister Hazem elBeblawi had ordered that Mubarak be put under house arrest as part of

the emergency measures imposed this month after a wave of violence sparked by the ouster of Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi, who had succeeded Mubarak as Egypt’s first freely elected President. Thursday’s move followed a court decision ordering Mubarak’s release in relation to charges of receiving gifts from a state-owned newspaper. The release threatened to stoke

27th annual Oregon Shorebird Festival For 27 years people have been gathering on the Oregon Coast to watch thousands of shorebirds as they migrate from their arctic breeding grounds to as far south as the tip of Argentina. Organizers invite the public to be a part of this natural phenomenon at the 27th annual Oregon Shorebird Festival, Aug. 2325 in Charleston. During expertly guided trips to Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, visitors will have an excellent opportunity to view the most abundant shorebirds including western and least sandpiper, dunlin, longbilled wowitcher, semipalmated plover and blackbellied plover. On Aug. 23, enjoy a presentation by Dick Ashford, board president for Klamath Bird Observatory.

On Aug. 24, Dan Elbert, endangered species biologist with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, will present “Recovering a Beach Nesting Bird: The Snowy Plover.” This talk will focus on the natural history of the snowy plover, a bird that lives year round on the beaches of Oregon.

Time to get pest problem fixed Our view The Bandon mosquito problems needs a solution, and quickly.

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

Depending on where you go in Bandon, this season’s mosquito invasion is either a disaster or not much of a deal. But an angry mob crowding a city council meeting earlier this week can’t all be wrong. Indeed, the Bandon Marsh rehabilitation project undertaken by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has produced an unintended consequence – hoards of salt marsh mosquitos. They’re larger than what we’re used to, and aggressive little buggers. For months now sections of Bandon have been inun-

dated, and there’s no clue right now about when it might end. The city council passed a resolution demanding quick action. U.S. Rep. Peter DeFazio is also demanding answers of the Wildlife Service. Concerns range from loss of tourist business to potential public health threats. Some are even claiming USFWS planned the infestation to prod land owners into selling so the marsh could expand more. The fact that this problem has persisted long enough to allow theories like that to surface means solutions aren’t coming fast enough.

Certainly there were good reasons for the marsh’s restoration. Restoration means an improved habitat for fish and fowl of all kinds. In an interview with The World on Wednesday, Roy Lowe, project leader for the Oregon Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex, said he and his staff are pursuing a number of options to alleviate the problem, including increases trenching to improve tidal circulation. They’re also consulting with counterparts in San Francisco who are experts on this species of mosquito.

And he said they’re working with the county to designate the area in a way that would allow pesticide use, something the USFWS doesn’t routinely do. All valiant efforts. It cannot be denied, however, that the agency’s been painfully slow and the problem persists. You could chalk up the delay to the usual federal lethargy. Problem is, nature doesn’t operate on a federal timetable. And right now, nature’s winning.

The ills of divide and conquer Politics is tribal, often built on difference and division. Success can depend on how effectively opponents are cast as somehow “impure” or “the other.” Ross Douthat, in reviewing Rick Perlstein’s book “Nixonland,” claimed that “divisive rhetoric” is practically built into our system: “’Positive polarization’ is a trick that all majority-building politicians have to manage, and the idea that one’s political foes are not merely wrong but unAmerican is as old as the 1800 election.” Still, differentiating values and demonizing opponents aren’t rhetorical equivalents. Not all politics is “divide and conquer,” and some forms of “positive polarization” are more malignant than others. Thus, Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” echoes in the morphed racism of current attempts at voter suppression, exemplified by serpentine restrictions, limiting access and crass gerrymandering. DONNA The 24/7 negative campaign had been fieldBRAZILE tested before Newt GinColumnist grich became speaker of the House, but many observers would agree that something changed when the budget battles of 1995 and 1996 led to a shutdown of the federal government. Instead of politics leading to policy, politics became the policy. Unfortunately for Republicans — and the country — the party re-emphasized the “politics is policy” after Obama’s election, threatening us all with “deja vu all over again.” Tea party Republicans want to return to what amounts to political blackmail: Defund Obamacare or we’ll shut down the government. The Republican establishment, maybe no less committed to “positive polarization,” but certainly more pragmatic, attacked the idea full force. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House leaders John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney all came out against the scheme. Even some conservative senators opposed it: Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn called it “a pregnant strategy that will deliver nothing other than pain,” and Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson said shutting down the government “is not the right way.” There has been, until recently, a consensus about how our institutions should work: The majority generally rules, but it must compromise with and acknowledge the concerns of the minority. We have balances of power to prevent two tyrannies: a tyranny of the majority and a tyranny of the minority. We are now in danger of succumbing to the latter. The filibuster, for example, was intended to give a minority of senators, or even a single senator, a chance to be heard. Instead of the Senate being a “cooling chamber” for legislation, however, now, thanks to the threat and abuse of the filibuster, it’s become a cryogenic chamber — freezing legislation until the zombie revolution. It’s been the custom, except when a candidate is demonstrably unqualified, for the Senate to let the president have the people he needs to run the executive branch. But the filibuster threat has handicapped the executive branch, forcing it to work under acting directors and temporary appointments. No institution or business can run effectively that way. If the tea party Republicans force the issue, it will probably backfire again. But at what cost to the country?

Public Forum Thank Merkley for support I want to thank U.S. Sen. Merkley for coming to Coos County for a town hall Aug. 20, as I wanted him to see why our area is so special. As a small business owner in Coos and Curry Counties, I am particularly aware of the importance that public lands and the recreation industry hold for our local economy. My experience has shown me that ensuring that public lands remain in public hands is in the best interest of present and future residents of our region. As a kid growing up, my family was drawn to the coast for many reasons, but it was the beautiful free beaches, the pub-

lic lands, like state parks, and the proximity to national wilderness areas that captured our attention. Now I am raising my own family on the South Coast and I run a guide service, South Coast Tours LLC, which takes clients kayaking in the estuaries and out in the ocean from Coos Bay to Brookings. The biggest draw for my tour business is the natural splendor of the South Coast. Whether it is kayak fishing or simply enjoying the beauty of our many headlands teaming with wildlife, my tours depend on a healthy and productive ecosystem. Direct consumer spending on outdoor recreation adds billions annually to the state’s economy and supports more than 140,000 jobs. I am

excited that my business is part of this equation. I am not alone in appreciating our public lands. Recent polling from Hart Research shows that nearly two in three voters in Oregon say that permanently protecting and conserving public lands for future generations is very important to them personally. I want to thank Sen. Merkley for helping to protect our public lands for all of us. We need him to reject any efforts to strip protections from national parks or wilderness areas and stop efforts to weaken or revoke the Antiquities Act which is crucial to protecting unique places for future generations. With his leadership we can find the right balance between a sustainable

harvest and the protection of our public lands for all of their values, like outdoor recreation, clean air and water, healthy fisheries and all the other services we all take for granted. Dave Lacey Gold Beach

Ralph Carr’s profiles in courage Rep. Steve King is a flag-waving, card-carrying, all-American jerk. In a recent interview with the conservative website Newsmax, the Iowa Republican was discussing the “Dreamers,” young people brought to this country as small children by undocumented parents. “For every one who's a valedictorian,” he snarled, “there's another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and they've got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.” King's remarks were immediately condemned by fellow Republican and House Speaker John Boehner as “hateful” and “ignorant.” But let's be honest. The Congressman represents an uncomfortable and undeniable streak in our history and our culture. If the blazing torch of the Statue of Liberty is a national symbol, so are the burning crosses of the Ku Klux Klan. And King's reference to overdeveloped leg muscles is hardly new. Xenophobes have long used distorted body parts to disparage foreigners — big noses, small brains, oily hair. Electing a black president whose father emigrated from Kenya is an important blow to our

Ralph L. Carr Award for Courage. In July, the award went to three men who were instrumental in passing a 1988 bill that awarded $1.6 billion in reparations to those unfairly detained during the war: President Ronald Reagan, a Republican, who signed the legislation; Speaker Jim Wright, a Democrat, the lead sponsor; and Glenn Roberts, the Congressional staffer who drafted the measure.

State Narcotics anonymous meeting confession fires up readers DEAR ABBY: I’m writing about the letter you printed from “Somewhere in the South” (May 26) who heard someone confess to a crime he had committed at age 12 during one of his Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings. The person asked if he should go to the police. You DEAR advised him to talk about it to the “group leader.” Abby, in a 12-step p ro g ra m , there is no f o r m a l leader who JEANNE has a PHILLIPS re s p o n s i bility to report anything to the authorities. There are usually discussion groups led by someone chosen for the night. I am not condoning what the person did at that young age. It was a horrible act. But 12-step programs are based on ANONYMITY. Reporting what is heard at meetings is completely against what 12step meetings are all about. It was unfair of you to place responsibility on someone who is there for his OWN addiction to tell on another group member. — ANONYMOUS IN THE USA DEAR ANONYMOUS: I received a ton of criticism for my response to that letter. Readers like you wrote to point out that I was misinformed about how these programs work; others berated me for not insisting the writer notify the police immediately. I was — and still am — of two minds on the question. While it would be satisfying to see “justice done,” I could not bring myself to recommend going against the principle upon which these 12step programs that have helped thousands of people is based. Another principle of these programs is that people who have hurt others must make amends for what they have done. However, this is the responsibility of the person who committed the crime — NOT someone who overheard mention of it at a meeting. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I have been a member of NA for 26-plus years (drug- and alcohol-free for that entire time). I also work in the field of mental health, where I have certain reporting duties as part of my professional code of ethics. I learned long ago how to separate my professional responsibilities from my membership in NA. If I obtain information about abuse or neglect in the conduct of my profession, THEN I have a duty to act. Should I overhear something at a meeting, in the mall or some other social setting, I have no specific duty to report. — CLEAN, FREE AND LIVING LIFE DEAR ABBY: As a 30-year member, I can say with certainty that some meeting attendees are grandiose and others are mentally ill. I have not infrequently heard disclosures that I later determined to be not true. The advice for members offered by our NA traditions is, “Take what you can use (in one’s own recovery) and leave the rest of what one hears at a meeting.” — CHARLES IN ILLINOIS DEAR ABBY: I disagree with your answer to that letter! Yes, this needs to be reported. If the victim died in that incident, it is a cold case and the boy’s parents — if they are still alive — would have never had closure. There may be siblings who would want to know what happened to their brother. I am not a believer that if you confess to murder in NA, AA or with a priest in a confessional that they are bound not to tell. That is HOGWASH! For some crimes I would say OK, but not something this serious. — JIM R., LANCASTER, CALIF. Write Dear Abby at or P.O.Box 69440,Los Angeles,CA 90069.


Columbia River Gorge wildfire burns 4th home STATE

GRANTS PASS (AP) — Strong east winds are helping to spread a fire in the Columbia River Gorge that has burned a fourth house and is now pushing into the Mount Hood National Forest. Fire spokesman Justin de Ruyter said Wednesday the Government Flat Complex has grown to more than 13 square miles in an area 10 miles southwest of The Dalles. It is 15 percent contained. Fire officials say a fourth home and two more outbuildings burned Wednesday. Nine outbuildings have burned since the fire started Aug. 16.

Boil order lifted in Baker City BAKER CITY (AP) — The Baker City Public Works Department says recent water samples were free of cryptosporidium and a boil order has been lifted. Health officials still recommend that people with compromised immune systems seek the advice of a health care professional

D I G E S T before drinking the tap water. The source of cryptosporidium is usually animal feces . The parasite causes severe diarrhea and is believed to have sickened hundreds of Baker City residents this summer.

School district settles dispute with family SALEM (AP) — The Salem-Keizer school board agreed to pay an extra $600,000 for the farmland of former Gov. Robert Straub that it took by eminent domain to build two schools. School district officials offered to buy the land four years ago from the company managed by the Straub family, but the sides couldn’t agree on a price. District officials then took ownership of the land through eminent domain, forcing the sale of private land for public use. The district’s appraisal of

the property had been $5.65 million; the Straub family appraisal was nearly $13 million.

Suspect identified in inmate’s death SALEM (AP) — The authorities say an Oregon State Penitentiary inmate found dead in his cell last week was strangled and his cellmate is the suspect. Joseph Akins, a convicted murderer, was found dead Saturday at the Salem prison. Cellmate Craig Bjork was held in segregation at the prison, but was not publicly named as the suspect until Wednesday. State police say criminal charges against the 53-yearold Bjork will be determined by the Marion County District Attorney’s Office when the investigation is over and the case is ready for a grand jury.

Former astronaut C. Gordon Fullerton dies at 76 LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) — C. Gordon Fullerton, a former astronaut who flew on two space shuttle missions and had an extensive career as a research and test pilot for NASA and the Air Force, died Wednesday, the space agency said. He was 76. Fullerton suffered a severe stroke in 2009 and had been confined to a long-term care facility in Lancaster for most of the past 3 1⁄2 years, NASA said in a statement. An astronaut from 1969 to 1986,Fullerton spent 382 hours in space on his shuttle missions and flew more than 135 different types of aircraft as a test pilot, amassing more than 16,000 flight hours. Fullerton soared into orbit aboard the shuttle Columbia in March 1982, an eight-day flight test that became the only shuttle mission to land on a backup site at White Sands, N.M. Columbia was diverted because heavy rains in the Mojave Desert flooded Rogers Dry Lake at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., the primary landing site for the program’s initial years. In 1985, Fullerton commanded the shuttle Challenger on a flight that carried the Spacelab module in its cargo bay in order to conduct a wide array of science experiments. Before space shuttles were operational, Fullerton was a

member of one of two crews that flew the shuttle prototype Enterprise in approach-andlanding tests conducted during 1977. Enterprise was released from the top of a modified Boeing 747 to glide down to the desert floor at Edwards. In 2003, after the loss of Columbia and its seven-member crew during reC. Gordon e n t r y , Fullerton Fullerton told a gathering at Edwards that NASA faced its worst crisis but would overcome it. He also said he felt a kinship with the crew. “Heroes, indeed they are. But in their own minds, they did not consider themselves heroes. I am sure they felt like the luckiest people on Earth as they snapped in at the pad,” Fullerton said. “Columbia was a magnificent machine. She carried us to the greatest adventures of our lives. ... It was indeed a magic carpet ride.” A native of Portland, Fullerton received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering from the California Institute of Technology and joined the Air Force in 1958, NASA said.

Woman who lost arm to shark in Maui dies HONOLULU (AP) — A German woman who lost her arm in a shark attack died Wednesday, one week after she was bitten while snorkeling off Maui. Jana Lutteropp, 20, who had been on life support, died at Maui Memorial Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Carol Clark said. Lutteropp was snorkeling up to 100 yards off Palauea Beach at the resort community of Makena when the shark bit off her right arm. A high school teacher visiting from California jumped into the water after hearing her screaming and seeing blood in the surf.


Rick Moore, 57, of Laguna Niguel, Calif., said Lutteropp went in and out of consciousness. It’s not known what type of shark bit Lutteropp. State officials investigating the attack said witnesses didn’t see the animal. Hawaii officials announced Tuesday they plan to spend the next two years studying tiger shark movements around Maui amid what they call an unprecedented spike in overall shark attacks since the start of 2012. There have been eight attacks statewide this year and 10 in 2012. Hawaii usually sees only three to four attacks each year.

Manning wants to live as a woman FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Bradley Manning wants to live as a woman named Chelsea and begin hormone treatment as soon as possible, the soldier said a day after being sentenced to 35 years in prison for sending gove r n m e n t s e c re ts to WikiLeaks. Manning announced the decision Thursday in a statement provided to NBC’s “Today” show, asking supporters to refer to him by his new name and the feminine pronoun. The statement was signed “Chelsea E. Manning.” “As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me. I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible,” the statement read. Manning received the stiffest punishment ever handed out in the U.S. for leaking information to the media. With good behavior and credit for the more than three years of time served, Manning could be out in as little as seven years, his attorney David Coombs said. Coombs told “Today” he hoped officials at the military prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kan., will accommodate Manning’s request for hormone treatment, but the Army said it doesn’t provide it or sex-reassignment surgery. “All inmates are considered soldiers and are treated as such with access to mental health professionals, including a psychiatrist, psychologist, social workers and behavioral science noncommissioned officers,” Army spokesman George Wright said. Manning’s struggle with gender identity disorder — the sense of being a woman trapped in a man’s body — was key at his court-martial. Retired Sgt. 1st Class Paul Adkins testified as a defense witness, saying in April 2010, just a month before Manning was arrested, the soldier emailed him a picture of himself in a blonde wig and lipstick with a letter titled, “My problem.” “I don’t know what to do anymore, and the only ‘help’ that seems to be available is severe punishment and/or getting rid of me,” the email said. “All I do know, is that fear of getting caught has caused me to go to great lengths to consciously hide the problem.” Manning’s attorney said the email was evidence the military knew of Manning’s struggles, yet allowed him to stay in Iraq as an intelligence analyst and keep his security clearance. Meanwhile, Coombs and supporters said they will ask the Army to reduce Manning’s sentence and they want President Obama to grant a pardon. “The time to end Brad’s suffering is now,” Coombs told a news conference after Manning’s sentence was handed down. “The time for our president to focus on protecting whistleblowers instead of punishing them is now.”

NATIONAL NSA reveals more secrets after court order D I G E S T Third of high school grads not college ready WASHINGTON (AP) — Almost a third of this year’s high school graduates who took the ACT tests are not prepared for college-level writing, biology, algebra or social science classes, according to data the testing company released Wednesday. The company’s annual report also found a gap between students’ interests now and projected job opportunities when they graduate, adding to the dire outlook for the class of 2013. The ACT reported that 31 percent of all high school graduates tested were not ready for any college coursework requiring English, science, math or reading skills. The other 69 percent of test takers met at least one of the four subject-area standards. Just a quarter of this year’s high school graduates cleared the bar in all four subjects, demonstrating the skills they’ll need for college or a career, according to company data. The numbers are even worse for black high school graduates: Only 5 percent were deemed fully ready for life after high school.

U.S. home sales hit 5.4M, highest since ’09 WASHINGTON (AP) — For the first time since 2009, previously occupied U.S. homes are selling at a pace associated with a healthy market. Sales jumped 6.5 percent in July to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.4 million, the National Association of Realtors said Wednesday. Over the past 12 months, sales have surged 17.2 percent. The trend shows that housing remains a driving force for the economy even as mortgage rates have risen from record lows. Buyers have been purchasing previously occupied homes at an annual pace above 5 million for three straight months. The last time that happened was in 2007. Sales are far above the 3.45 million pace of July 2010, the low point after the housing bubble burst. Analysts generally think a healthy sales pace is roughly between 5 and 5.5 million.

Fed on track to slow bond buys by year’s end WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve appears on track to slow its bond purchases by the end of this year if the economy continues to improve. But it remains divided over the exact timing of the move. That’s the message from the minutes of the Fed’s July 30-31 meeting released Wednesday. A few policymakers said they wanted to assess more economic data before deciding when to scale back the central bank’s $85 billion a month in Treasury and mortgage bond purchases. These policymakers “emphasized the importance of being patient,” the minutes said.

Researcher looking at dolphin die-off of 230 BRIGANTINE, N.J. (AP) — Once upon a time, he was known as Capt. Bob, the man who trained the dolphins and seals to perform for crowds in Atlantic City. But as he got to know the dolphins, Bob Schoelkopf renounced keeping them in captivity and devoted the rest of his life to rescuing stranded marine mammals. Now the man who once prodded dolphins to jump and wave their fins for crowds is part of a broad scientific effort to determine why dolphins are dying by the hundreds. So far this summer, there have been about 230 dolphin deaths along the East Coast, prompting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to declare an unusual mortality event. That clears the way for an intensive scientific inquiry into what is causing the deaths.

Facebook wants more of the world online NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants to get all of the world’s 7 billion people online through a partnership with some of the largest mobile technology companies. He says the Web is an essential part of life, and everyone deserves to be connected, whether they live in Norway,Nicaragua or Namibia.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has given up more of its surveillance secrets, acknowledging that it was ordered to stop scooping up thousands of Internet communications from Americans with no connection to terrorism — a practice it says was an unintended consequence when it gathered bundles of Internet traffic connected to terror suspects. One of the documents that intelligence officials released Wednesday came because a court ordered the National Security Agency to

do so. But it’s also part of the administration’s response to the leaks by analyst-turnedfugitive Edward Snowden, who revealed that the NSA’s spying programs went further and gathered millions more communications than most Americans realized. The NSA declassified three secret court opinions showing how it revealed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that one of its surveillance programs may have collected and stored as many as 56,000 emails and other communications by ordinary Ameri-

cans annually over three years. The court ruled the NSA actions unconstitutional and ordered the agency to fix the problem, which it did by creating new technology to filter out buckets of data most likely to contain U.S. emails, and then limit the access to that data. The director of national intelligence, James Clapper, released the information Wednesday “in the interest of increased transparency,” and as directed by President Barack Obama in June, according to a statement accompanying the

School employee helped avert tragedy in school shooter standoff DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — The 911 tapes from a frightening standoff and shooting at an Atlanta-area school show how a school employee’s calm demeanor and kind approach helped end the ordeal without any injuries. Police said Wednesday that school bookkeeper Antoinette Tuff was heroic in how she responded after being taken hostage a day earlier by Michael Brandon Hill, a 20-yearold man with a history of mental health issues. Hill went to the school armed with an AK 47-style rifle and nearly 500 rounds of ammunition, police said. On a recording of a 911 call released Wednesday, Tuff can be heard relaying messages from Hill to DeKalb County emergency dispatchers before convincing him to surrender. She tells the dispatcher that Hill said he wasn’t there to hurt the children but wanted to talk to an unarmed officer. “He said, ‘Call the probation office in DeKalb County and let them know what’s going on,’” Tuff is heard telling the dispatcher. “He said he should have just went to the mental hospital instead of doing this, because he’s not on his medication.” No one was injured, but police said the suspect shot into the floor and exchanged gunfire with officers who had surrounded Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Acad-

online documents. But it wasn’t until the Electronic Freedom Foundation, an Internet civil liberties group that sued for the release of one of the documents, disclosed the court order that Obama administration officials also acknowledged that the release was prodded by the group’s 2012 lawsuit. The court opinions show that when the NSA reported its inadvertent gathering of American-based Internet traffic in September 2011, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ordered the

agency to find ways to limit what it collects and how long it keeps the material. In an 85-page declassified FISA court ruling from October 2011, U.S. District Judge James D. Bates rebuked government lawyers for repeatedly misrepresenting the operations of the NSA’s surveillance programs. Bates also complained that the government’s submissions make clear that the NSA was gathering Internet data years before it was authorized by the USA Patriot Act’s Section 702 in 2008.

World U.K. gov’t. can examine items seized in Snowden case

Rare polio virus spreads to Israel’s north

LONDON (AP) — A British court ruled Thursday that if national security issues are at stake, the U.K. government may look through items seized from the partner of a journalist who has written stories about documents leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. It was not immediately clear who gets to decide whether national security issues were an issue. Lawyers for David Miranda, the partner of Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald, said the items seized from Miranda last weekend when British authorities detained him at Heathrow Airport contain confidential information. It asked the High Court to prevent the government from “inspecting, copying or sharing” the data. Instead, the court decided to allow the government to view the items on the condition the material was being examined on “national security” grounds. The injunction runs until Aug. 30. Miranda’s lawyer, Gwendolen Morgan of the Bindmans law firm, claimed a partial victory in the ruling, arguing the government now has seven days to “prove there is a genuine threat to national security.” Greenwald has written about NSA programs in the United States using files disclosed by Snowden, who now has temporary asylum in Russia. The Obama administration wants Snowden to face trial in the United States for the leaks. The attorney representing British police at the hearing, Jonathan Laidlaw, made clear Thursday that police were already scanning through the tens of thousands of pages of digital material they had seized from Miranda — and were only partway through it. He insisted the material was of significant concern to national security. Miranda and Greenwald live together in Brazil.

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s president is urging the country’s children to get polio boosters after a rare appearance of the virus spread to the north of the country. President Shimon Peres met with children getting vaccinations at a Jerusalem clinic Wednesday together with the Health Minister, Yael German. German said new lab results show the “virus is migrating north and spreading.” Peres detailed the suffer-

Disgraced Chinese leader denies taking bribes JINAN, China (AP) — Disgraced Chinese politician Bo Xilai denied taking $3.5 million in bribes from businessmen and cross-examined one of them with a lawyer’s precision Thursday, launching an unexpectedly spirited defense at a trial aimed at capping China’s biggest scandal in decades. Prosecutors ended months of suspense about the details of his charges, rolling out accusations that featured a villa in France, a hot-air balloon project and a football club, giving a glimpse of how colorful corruption can look in China. Bo’s verbal sparring displayed the media-savvy politician’s keen sense of how to portray himself well in tough situations. He thanked the judge for letting him speak, asserted that he was pressured into making a confession and was selectively contrite. Once the powerful party boss in the megacity of Chongqing, the charismatic Bo fell into disgrace early last year following revelations that his wife had killed a British businessman, and that he had allegedly attempted to cover it up. Thursday marked the first time he was seen in public in 18 months, since shortly after the scandal emerged. The trial is widely presumed to have a predetermined outcome: conviction. But in an unusual display of openness for a major political trial in China, court officials released frequent microblog updates on the testimony, suggesting ruling Communist Party officials are confident of minimizing damage from a scandal that exposed a murder and machinations among China’s elite.

ing his family endured when one of his children was stricken by polio as an infant. Israel this week began a nationwide campaign to inoculate children with booster drops after a rare discovery of the virus in the south of the country. Israel already immunizes its children against the disease. The campaign gives a second boost of protection. There have been no clinical cases of the virus.

Syrian regime forces fired intense artillery and rocket barrages Wednesday on the eastern suburbs of the capital Damascus, in what two pro-opposition groups claimed was a “poisonous gas” attack that killed dozens of people.

$ Syrian forces bomb area of EVERY Mon: Enchilada alleged chemical attack Tu e s : C h i l e R e l l e n o BY BASSEM MROUE The Associated Press

BEIRUT — President Bashar Assad’s forces pressed on with a military offensive in eastern Damascus on Thursday, bombing rebelheld suburbs where the opposition said a chemical weapons attack the day before killed over 100 people. The government has denied allegations it used chemical weapons in artillery barrages on the area known as eastern Ghouta on Wednesday as “absolutely baseless.” The United States, Britain and France have demanded that a team of U.N. experts already in Syria be granted immediate access to investigate the site. Syrian opposition figures and activists have reported widely varying death tolls from Wednesday’s attack, from 136 to as high as 1,300. But even the most conservative tally would make it the deadliest alleged chemical attack in Syria’s civil war.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it had no word on casualties in the Thursday morning bombing of eastern Ghouta. It said Syrian warplanes conducted several air raids on eastern and western suburbs of Damascus, including three that took place within five minutes. Wednesday’s alleged chemical weapons attack left scores of children dead, their lifeless bodies appearing in amateur videos wrapped in white cloths, their pale skin unmarked by any wounds. UNICEF said in a statement that the reports of attacks on civilians, presumably including children, were “deeply disturbing.” “Such horrific acts should be a reminder to all the parties and all who have influence on them that this terrible conflict has gone on far too long and children have suffered more than enough,” UNICEF said. “Children must be protected, and those

who fail to protect them will be held accountable.” Mohammed Abdullah, an activist in the suburb of Saqba told The Associated Press via Skype that most of the dead were buried the same day in mass graves in different areas in eastern Ghouta. He said the burials took place quickly for fear the bodies might decompose as a result of the heat and lack of electricity. He said relatives identified some of their dead family members before burial while unidentified victims were photographed and their graves tagged with a number in case their loved ones come to collect their bodies in the future. “Most of the dead were buried in mass graves,” Abdullah said. The unrest in Syria began in March 2011 and later exploded into a civil war. More than 100,000 people have been killed in the conflict so far, according to U.N. figures.

Plus, the pro-immigration reform side is better organized and funded this time around and many establishment Republicans are on board. “All of that put together means you’re not going to see the same level of frantic activity,” Krikorian said. What’s less clear is how much it will matter once lawmakers return to Washington in September.

employers to check all workers’ legal status, and a 13-year path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants already in the country illegally. GOP House leaders have rejected that approach, vowing instead to proceed with bills addressing individual immigration issues, beginning with border security. And although by advocates’ count more than 20 House Republicans have now declared their support for some kind of citizenship path, the majority of House Republicans remain opposed. Nonetheless, pro-immigrant advocates are claiming success in their August recess efforts to pressure House Republicans to act on immigration in the fall. An unusual and deep-pocketed alliance of Catholics and evangelicals, labor unions, business groups and others have been targeting dozens of GOP members viewed as open to hearing them out, and say they’ll have momentum on their side when Congress reconvenes.

The step comes as the Obama administration has been cutting spending on thinning national forests to prevent wildfires, and despite Congress creating a special wildfire reserve fund in 2009, known as the FLAME Act. Congress dedicated $413 million to the reserve in fiscal 2010, but cut it to $290 million in 2011 and raised it to $315 million in fiscal 2012, according to Forests Service documents.

That is more than half last year’s total of $1.9 billion, and fastapproaching the 10-year average of $1.4 billion.

New York’s Ichiro Suzuki gestures to the crowd after hitting a single during the first inning Wednesday for his 4,000th career hit in Japan and the major leagues.

Ichiro reaches 4,000-hit milestone BY HOWIE RIMBERG The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Ichiro Suzuki stood near first base after lining a single for his 4,000th hit, hugging his teammates one by one, basking in the resounding cheers of an adoring Yankee Stadium crowd. In that moment it did not matter that his name would not be listed in Major League Baseball’s record book next to Ty Cobb and Pete Rose, the only two players to reach the milestone solely in the major leagues. Everyone involved Wednesday night knew: this was quite an achievement. “I was overwhelmed,” Suzuki said of the reception. The 39-year-old outfielder slashed a single the opposite way in the first inning off Toronto knuckleballer R.A.

Dickey that bounced just beyond diving third baseman Brett Lawrie for hit No. 4,000 in a career split between Japan and the major leagues. With his 2,722nd hit in the big leagues he passed Yankees Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig in his 13th season in the United States. The speedy outfielder amassed 1,278 hits in nine seasons with Orix of Japan’s Pacific League. Rose finished with 4,256 hits and Cobb had 4,191, but Suzuki is not thinking about catching Rose. MLB does not recognize Suzuki’s overall mark, but players and coaches around the league marvel at the rarely heard number. “It’s an amazing feat,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “It’s a testament to how hard he’s worked, how long he’s been in the game, how he stays

several times, the final one toward the Blue Jays’ dugout. “You never want to be the guy that gives up the milestone,” Dickey said. “That being said, what an incredible achievement. The manner that he’s done it is equally impressive. Just the longevity, the endurance, the durability. Having played with him in Seattle, it was a real treat to play with him and it couldn’t have happened to a more professional hitter.” When he went to his position in right field for the second inning, Suzuki tipped his cap to the fans who greeted him with a standing ovation. Ken Griffey Jr., a former teammate with the Seattle Mariners, congratulated Suzuki with a message shown on the video board at Yankee Stadium.

healthy, how he goes about his business.” Suzuki was surprised when his teammates streamed out of the dugout and surrounded him at first base, Curtis Granderson giving him the first hug. Suzuki said he felt bad that the game was being stopped for him and he tried to prevent the Yankees from coming onto the field, but he was grateful. The broad grin that broke out when he saw his team said it all. “It was supposed to be a number that was special to me, but what happened tonight I wasn’t expecting,” Suzuki said. “When my teammates came out to first base it was very special, and to see the fans. I wasn’t expecting so much joy and happiness from them and that’s what made it very special tonight.” Suzuki acknowledged the fans by doffing his helmet and bowing

Real Salt Lake rallies for tie with Timbers PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Real Salt Lake’s Cole Grossman kept his focus when the Portland Timbers lost theirs. Grossman scored in stoppage time and Salt Lake played to a 3-3 draw against the Timbers to remain in first place in Major League Soccer’s Western Conference. “Turf field, fast field, (everything) happens really fast,” he said. “I’m just trying to keep it on goal and luckily it went in.” Grossman’s goal in the 93rd minute, with RSL down a man, came after Kalif Alhassan scored in the 86th minute to give Portland the lead. With the tie,

the Timbers pulled even with the Colorado Rapids for second place in the conference standings. “When the dust settles, there’s still some positives in where we’re at,” Timbers coach Caleb Porter said. “We can’t let this get us too down that it affects the next game.” While the two teams hadn’t met in an MLS match this season, they played in a U.S. Open Cup match on Aug. 7 in Utah. Real Salt Lake won that contest 2-1 to advance to the final against D.C. United on Oct. 1.

Woods said again Wednesday at The Barclays this already has been a great season, and it’s difficult to argue. His five wins — including two World Golf Championships and The Players Championship — are three more than anyone else on the PGA Tour. He is leading all the right indicators, such as the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average, the money list ($2.6 million more than anyone else) and the No. 1 seed going into the FedEx Cup playoffs that start Thursday. The standard for Woods, however, always has been the majors, and he was shut out for the fifth straight year. SEE TIGER | B2

One of the most familiar voices in the Bay Area will be ringing out in Matthew Knight Arena this fall. Matt Jarvis, for many years the radio voice of the Marshfield Pirates for football and boys basketball, has been selected as the public address announcer for the University of Oregon volleyball team. Ironically, Jarvis beat out another man with Bay Area ties, radio personality Bill Crawford, for the job after the two auditioned during the Ducks’ scrimmage last week. “It was nice that Bill was there, too,” Jarvis said this week. “I felt good when I left there. I counted one mistake that I made. I don’t think anyone else would have noticed it.” Jarvis learned Monday that he was the new arena voice for the Ducks. It’s quite an honor for Jarvis, who started as a stadium announcer in high school and has kept it up ever since. High school SPORTS runners and their parents around the state are familiar with his voice. He has been the announcer for the state cross country meet for 40 years and the state track meet in Eugene for more than 30. JOHN He was an 18G UNTHER year-old freshman at Lane Community College in 1972 when he first did the cross country meet. “They asked me to do basketball for them, because I’d done it in high school,” he recalled of how he ended up with the cross country gig. That was the year the event moved to Eugene from Salem and Lane needed somebody to announce at the meet. Jarvis has been doing that ever since, and added other Oregon School Activities Association events — the Class 5A basketball tournament in Eugene, the Class 3A event in the Bay Area, even the state gymnastics competition when OSAA sponsored that. He also has called football and basketball playoff games on the radio for OSAA. He’s pulled double-duty at Marshfield, too, the voice in Pirate Palace for volleyball matches and girls basketball games when they didn’t conflict with the boys games he was calling on the radio for the school. The Oregon games won’t conflict with his duties as Marshfield’s volleyball announcer, but they will for three of the Pirates’ football games. Jarvis said Marshfield athletic director Greg Mulkey will fill in for those three games and that the other regular radio personalities for KMHS — Ron Nance and Steve Walker — will do all the volleyball games for radio (Jarvis had done the road league games in the past). Jarvis said his favorite sports to announce are basketball and volleyball, “because they’re fast moving and they’re inside and you’ve got good sound systems.” Added to that joy is the success of Oregon’s team, which was the NCAA runner-up last fall. “Hopefully they can do more stuff like that,” he said. “It should be fun.” Jarvis has a distinct style. He doesn’t describe himself as a “homer,” but certainly in the past has put more excitement into announcing good plays for Marshfield. His philosophy is that a stadium announcer shouldn’t be a distraction. “Hopefully, you can add a little flavor to it,” he said. “I don’t want to be in the way. I want to accent stuff.” It’s not his first gig with the Ducks — he did track meets for Oregon at Hayward Field a few decades back. And he agreed to fill that role for Oregon State track coach Kelly Sullivan next spring after doing the same for the Beavers’ first meet at their new facility this year. “I have Oregon State track, so I have both schools,” Jarvis said. And the Pirates, too.

New coach adjusts to the Big Ten MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Any concerns about how Wisconsin’s Gary Andersen would be accepted by the team’s strong fan base may have been dissolved in the wind blowing through a cornfield. A farmer recently decided to carve a corn maze with the likeness of the face of the Badgers’ new coach and the school’s signature “W” logo on a football. Welcome to Wisconsin, Gary. “The longer you’re here, the more you understand how people are passionate about Wisconsin as a whole and the university, and football is a big part of that,” Andersen said. “I like the football and the motion ‘W’ in it than the other piece of the maze.” It didn’t take long for him to fit in. Andersen arrived in Madison after four years at Utah State, taking over the 23rd-ranked Badgers following the awkward departure of Bret Bielema for Arkansas. Bielema led the Badgers to a 68-24 record over seven seasons before leaving in December, before Wisconsin’s third straight Rose Bowl appearance. Enter Andersen, who led a remarkable resurgence during his four years at Utah State. A program that had just six wins in its previous three seasons won 26 under Andersen, including a schoolrecord 11 victories in 2012, a WAC title and a 41-15 win over Toledo in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Displaying a soft-spoken and mildmannered demeanor in a recent interview, Andersen can be tough, too. It’s a personality that seems to fit in well in the upper Midwest. At work, he expects everyone’s full effort. But he doesn’t want his coaches or players to get overtaxed, either, and encourages them to get out of the office as much as possible. Training camp practices have been open to the public and media, too, adding to the new vibe at Wisconsin. The Badgers host Massachusetts to

Coach Andersen has been able to get a lot out of us without overtaxing us,” linebacker Chris Borland said. “We’ve been on the same page as coaches and players. Working hard, getting things done, but keeping guys safe out there.” The adjustment to running a power conference program has gone well, he said. Yes, there may be CEO-like duties with more when it comes to football operations, but Andersen stresses that attitude ends when dealing with players. In deciding to make the move, Andersen sought a program that had players at a program with a similar attitude as he had at Utah State with hardworking players and mainly model citizens off the field. It helped that he made a trip to Camp Randall last September, when Wisconsin held off the Aggies 1614. The recruiting intensity is much different, though, at Wisconsin. He is in a conference, after all, competing with the likes of Urban Meyer at Ohio State and Brady Hoke at Michigan. Andersen was also a defensive line assistant while Meyer coached at Utah. It’s in Andersen’s office in a corner of Camp Randall, with a scenic view of the Badgers’ home field, that the new head

Badger handles recruiting chores or watches film on the large, flat-screen television near his desk. “Every day in Wisconsin ... it’s a full-court press every single day. It’s obviously very competitive,” Andersen said. “My activity and my involvement in recruiting ... It’s as close to 100 percent more than it could possibly be. It’s a lot.” Andersen doesn’t like meetings. He does like checking in with his assistants to see what they need. He tries to keep a long-term calendar that goes as far out as three or four months, and a shortterm calendar that might look three or four days ahead. Borland, one of the top linebackers in the Big Ten, said his new coach “hates to waste time.” “When we do meet, it’s absolutely necessary ... and very informative and efficient,” Borland said. And while Andersen can be seen in a car commercial for a sponsor, the coach prefers to stay out of the spotlight that might come outside of the typical duties for a head coach. “Eighty-thousand people are never going to come to a stadium to watch nine coaches run up and down the sideline,” Andersen said. “It’s about the young men in the program.”

“His lack of winning a major is the only thing talked about, which I think is sad,” Bill Haas said. “I think it’s ignorant. But that’s what we are basing his year on. He may even say, ‘Oh, I’m disappointed because I didn’t win a major. But he’s not winning the smaller events. He’s winning the WGCs and Bay Hill. And yes, it makes what he’s doing that much more impressive, absolutely.” Woods is stuck on 14 majors, leaving him four short of the Nicklaus standard. The five wins this year, after three wins in 2012, has put him at 79 career wins, moving him closer to Snead’s record 82 wins on the PGA Tour. “I tell you what, I never thought I would ever get there this quick,” Woods said. “It’s been an amazing run to get here. One of the things I’m most proud of is winning five or more tournaments 10 years in there. That’s one of the stats that I look at as one of the ones I’m really proud of. This is one of those years.” The next chance to add to his wins starts today at The Barclays, the first of four FedEx Cup playoff events against some of the strongest fields of the year. Yes, the majors are over. There is still plenty up for grabs — for Woods, British Open champion Phil Mickelson and even someone like Rory McIlroy. Even though Woods has twice as many wins as anyone else, Mickelson could make a case for PGA Tour player of the year if he were to win a playoff or event (or two), particularly the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize. Despite two decades of greatness and a spot in the

HWY 101 - 2001 N. BAYSHORE DR. • 1-877-251-3017 • WWW.COOSBAYTOYOTA.COM

World Golf Hall of Fame, Mickelson has never won player of the year, a money title or the Vardon Trophy. Haas didn’t hesitate when asked who had the best year — Woods. Neither did Masters champion Adam Scott. “It’s hard to pass up looking at five wins,” Scott said. “I think the next best guy might have two, is that right? That’s a great year to win that many times. It’s all personal opinion. If you think winning a major is what you base success on, then if you haven’t (won), you haven’t had a great year. But winning ... I’ve always based it around winning events, and I don’t think one major makes up for five tournaments.” That led to another question posed to Scott: Would he trade seasons with Woods? “I’d rather have mine, that’s for sure,” said Scott, who collected his first major at Augusta National. “He may want mine. I mean, No. 15 is proving to be difficult for him, so that would have given him that. But they’ve all got to get tougher the more you get.” Woods only played nine holes of his pro-am Wednesday at Liberty National, the course along the Hudson River across from the Statue of Liberty. He experienced stiffness in his neck and back from what he attributed to a soft bed in his hotel, and Woods decided only to chip and putt on the back nine as a precaution, saying later he was not concerned. He is facing one of the toughest fields in the year featuring the top 125 players on the PGA Tour, all of whom are in form, some of whom are desperate to go as far as they can in these lucrative FedEx Cup playoffs. Only the top 100 advance next week to Bank the Deutsche Championship.

Sports Longhorns expect tough challenge in volleyball defense Oregon is ranked eighth after taking second at last year’s NCAA tournament ■

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Top-ranked Texas has all but one starter back from last year’s national championship volleyball team, and Jerritt Elliott says his roster is the deepest it has been in his 13 years at the school. But the 2012 national coach of the year isn’t ready to make travel plans for a fifth appearance in six years in the NCAA final four. That’s because the top challengers to Texas also return a bevy of talent. In fact, 10 of the 14 players who were first-team AllAmericans are back. “It’s going to be a very competitive year in terms of getting to that point where you can be a final four team,” Elliott said Wednesday. “Last year was a young year. It ebbs and flows. Sometimes you have a real senior-based talented group (nationally), and I think that’s the case right now.” Penn State coach Russ Rose, whose program won four straight national titles from 2007-10, said the pool of potential champions is becoming deeper. “Each year it gets harder and harder because there’s more parity with the fact that people are getting better at coaching, players are getting better at playing and you

have these 25-point (rally scoring) games,” Rose said. Returning All-Americans Haley Eckerman and Bailey Webster are the headliners for a Texas team that hit a nation-leading .325 last season and won 23 of its last 24 matches, including a 3-0 sweep of Oregon in the NCAA final. Second-ranked Penn State lost no starters from the team that made it to the semifinals. The Nittany Lions are led by AllAmericans Ariel Scott and Micha Hancock. Every starter also is back at No. 3 Stanford. Carly Wopat was an All-American for the Cardinal, and Inky Ajanaku, Jordan Burgess and Brittany Howard won postseason honors as freshmen. No. 4 Southern California has six returning starters plus two-time first-team AllAmerican Natalie Hagglund at libero. The Women of Troy also bring back Pac-12 freshman of the year Samantha Bricio. Fifth-ranked Washington returns all but one starter and hopes to still be playing when Seattle hosts the NCAA championships for the first time Dec. 19 and 21. “It’s just human nature, that here we are in our backyard and there is a little bit more incentive,” Huskies coach Jim McLaughlin said. “Over the years we’ve wanted to be the best we can be, develop and try to get to every final four. But yeah, for sure, it would be great to do it in our home city.” Oregon enters the season

The Ducks do return All-American outside hitter Liz Brenner and setter Lauren Plum. “We have a lot of great people back and a lot of good new people,” Brenner said in an interview for the school’s website. “So it’s just a matter of getting everyone to work well together.” During the team’s media day last week, Oregon coach Jim Moore said he hopes the Ducks remember what made them successful in 2012. “I hope what we carry from (last season) is that you have to take it one play at a time,” he said. The Pac-12 has five of the top 12 teams in the preseason poll, with UCLA ranked No. 12. Texas’ Elliott has built a

schedule that provides early tests. Of the Longhorns’ first eight matches, four are against opponents ranked among the top 11 in the coaches’ poll. “Last year people wanted to beat us because we were Texas, so regardless they bought their ‘A’ game, especially on the road,” Webster said. “But this year, people will want to beat us because we are Texas and because we won the national championship. We will embrace that and are excited to play each team.” The Longhorns open Aug. 31 at No. 11 Hawaii, which has won 71 of its last 76 home matches. The next week they return home to play No. 2 Penn State and No. 3 Stanford. “I told our team in our first meeting that I set up a schedule that will give us a

chance to take some losses, and I’m OK with taking some losses early if we’re competing at a high level and working on things we need to do,” Elliott said. “I’m not looking to try to go undefeated on the season.” Penn State isn’t easing into the season, either. The Nittany Lions play No. 19 Louisville before heading to Texas to face the Longhorns and No. 9 Florida. Nine of their opponents are in the Top 25, with Big Ten matches against No. 6 Minnesota, No. 7 Michigan and No. 10 Nebraska. “If you play good teams, you increase the risk you’re going to lose,” Rose said. “But it also gives you a much better indicator of what you need to work on because the good teams and good programs are going to expose you.”

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Kyle Busch won the NASCAR Truck Series race Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway for his record 14th overall victory on the highbanked, 0.533-mile oval. The Sprint Cup driver took fresh tires with 16 laps to go, passed Ryan Blaney for the lead with six laps left and held off Timothy Peters in a race to the finish that ended with Peters crashing on the frontstretch. “He wrecked a pretty good race truck and I hate it for him,” Busch said. “But, we had a pretty good race truck. We got behind with a penalty on pit road, but we just stuck in there and persevered to get back to the front.” Busch broke a tie with Darrell Waltrip for the NASCAR track victory record. Busch has four victories at the track in the Truck Series, five in Sprint Cup and five in the Nationwide Series. “Some might say you’re not breaking anything until you win 12 Cup races,” Busch said. “I’ve been fortunate in my career to have a lot of great vehicles here to race. I’ve won here with a lot of different vehicles, a lot of different crew chiefs. I’d like to be able to win 13 Cup races and break that record, too.” The victory was his third in eight Truck starts this season and pushed his career total to 33. Busch also has three victories this year in Sprint Cup and eight in Nationwide.

Sports Sharapova will miss U.S. Open with injury THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Four-time major champion Maria Sharapova pulled out of the U.S. Open because of a right shoulder injury. Sharapova, the 2006 champion at Flushing Meadows, has played only one match on tour since her second-round loss at Wimbledon in June. “I just wanted to let you know that withdrawing from the U.S. Open has been a really tough decision to make. I have done everything I could since Wimbledon to get myself ready but it just wasn’t enough time,” read a message posted on Sharapova’s Facebook page. “I have done many tests, received several opinions and it all comes down to taking the proper amount of time to heal my shoulder injury properly.” The posting added that Sharapova plans “on taking the next few weeks off, receiving proper treatment and rehabilitation.” She originally was seeded third at the U.S. Open. The USTA said 2012 Wimbledon runner-up Agnieszka Radwanksa would shift from No. 4 to No. 3, and all other seeded players below her would move up a spot, too. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova will become the tournament’s new 32nd seed. The draw for the year’s last Grand Slam tournament is today, and play begins Monday.

New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy, top, shows the ball after tagging out Atlanta’s Andrelton Simmons at second base during the fourth inning Wednesday.

Braves win game, lose Heyward THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Chris Johnson hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and Atlanta beat the New York Mets 4-1 on Wednesday after Braves outfielder Jason Heyward sustained a broken jaw when he was hit by a pitch. Atlanta got an RBI single from Freddie NL Freeman and another impressive start Recap by rookie Alex Wood in splitting the twogame series for its 20th victory in 24 games. The Braves also benefited from a disputed call in the 10th. Andrelton Simmons singled off Scott Atchison (3-2) with two outs and Freeman hit a two-strike grounder back toward the box that ticked off the bottom of Scott Rice’s glove and rolled behind him. The reliever retrieved the ball and fired to first, where Freeman was called safe. Greg Burke allowed Johnson’s homer. Luis Avilan (5-0) pitched out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth and Craig Kimbrel reached 40 saves for the third straight season. He has converted 30 chances in a row. Cardinals 8, Brewers 6: Carlos Beltran and Allen Craig hit towering home runs in St. Louis’ six-run second

inning, and the Cardinals held off Milwaukee. Matt Holliday also homered and Shane Robinson had three hits for the Cardinals, who are one game behind Pittsburgh in the NL Central race. Padres 2, Pirates 1: Ian Kennedy pitched seven strong innings, combining with two relievers on a four-hitter, and Yonder Alonso drove in two runs as San Diego beat Pittsburgh to avoid a three-game sweep. Luke Gregerson pitched the eighth, walking Felix Pie and allowing Andrew McCutcheon’s sacrifice fly, and Huston Street worked the ninth for his 24th save in 25 chances. Phillies 4, Rockies 3: Michael Young hit the winning single with one out in the ninth inning after Carlos Ruiz tied the game with a double, pushing Philadelphia past Colorado. Erik Kratz opened the ninth with a double off closer Rafael Betancourt (24). Pinch runner Casper Wells advanced to third on a grounder and scored the tying run on Ruiz’s pinch-hit double to left. Jimmy Rollins was walked intentionally and Young followed with the winning single to left. Dodgers 4, Marlins 1: Zack Greinke allowed one run in eight innings to win his fourth start in a row Wednesday, and the Los Angeles Dodgers took advantage of sloppy

defense by Miami for the second consecutive night. The Marlins’ lone run came on a first-inning homer by Giancarlo Stanton, and they had only one hit after the fourth inning. Miami committed a season-high three errors, including two in the Dodgers’ three-run fourth inning. Reds 10, Diamondbacks 7: ShinSoo Choo went 4-for-5 with a homer and three RBIs to spark Cincinnati’s offensive outburst in a win over Arizona. The Reds opened a six-game lead over Arizona in the race for the National League’s second wild-card spot. Aroldis Chapman pitched the final two innings for his 32nd save — his first career two-inning save. Nationals 11, Cubs 6: Jayson Werth and Scott Hairston hit three-run homers to lead Washington over HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL Chicago. Oregon City coach faces


charge of stealing watch

Red Sox 12, Giants 1: Stephen Drew and Will Middlebrooks each hit a home run, Jonny Gomes and Jarrod Saltalamacchia drove in two runs apiece, and Boston beat San Francisco. Joaquin Arias homered among his two hits for the Giants, who have lost three of four. Jacoby Ellsbery and Shane Victorino each had three hits for Boston.

OREGON CITY — Police arrested Oregon City High School football coach Kevin Strasser in the theft of a student’s watch. Strasser, who also teaches physical education at the school, was arrested Tuesday at his home in Milwaukie. He was booked into the Clackamas County Jail on charges of theft and official misconduct. He posted bail early Wednesday and was released. Oregon City police Sgt. Matthew Paschall said a former student told investigators he lost his watch at the end of the school year. He didn’t think it was stolen until someone he knows saw it at a local pawn shop. Strasser was arrested after an officer looked at pawnshop’s records to see who brought in the watch. Strasser declined comment when reached at home by a reporter from The Oregonian, saying a lawyer advised him not to do interviews. Strasser, 42, played receiver for Oregon State University in the early 1990s. He coached at Portland State University and in the Canadian Football League before becoming head coach of the Pioneers in 2011. Athletic Director Bruce Reese will serve as acting football coach. A substitute teacher will handle Strasser’s physical education classes.

Ryan leads Mariners over Oakland THE ASSOCIATED PRESS OAKLAND, Calif. — Brendan Ryan hit a two-run double in the sixth and added an RBI single in the eighth to help Seattle beat Oakland 5-3 on Wednesday. Michael Morse and Brad Miller homered for the Mariners, who overcame an uneven start by AL Hisashi Recap Iwakuma to beat the A’s for the fourth time in the past five games. Iwakuma (12-6) gave up a pair of home runs but limited the damage to win his second straight. The Mariners righthander struck out four and walked two in seven innings. Tigers 7, Twins 1: Torii Hunter hit a go-ahead, tworun double in the seventh inning and scored from second base on a passed ball to help Detroit beat Minnesota. Drew Smyly (5-0) struck out two in a perfect inning in relief of Anibal Sanchez. Jose Veras entered with two outs in the eighth inning and closed the game for his first save with the Tigers.

ICHIRO From Page B1 The Mariners tweeted a statement: “Ichiro’s historic milestone is testament to his position as one of the greatest hitters in the game of baseball.” A .353 hitter in Japan in a career that began in 1992, Suzuki became the first Japanese-born non-pitcher to sign with a major league team. He smoothly made the move from Orix to the Mariners in 2001 when he was 27. He was selected AL Rookie of the Year and MVP in his first season, when he batted .350, had 242 hits and stole 56 bases. Suzuki had at least 206 hits in each of his first 10 years in the majors, peaking in 2004 when he set the record for hits in a season with 262, topping George

The Associated Press

Seattle’s Brad Miller, right, is congratulated after hitting a home run off Oakland’s A.J. Griffin in the fifth inning Wednesday. The Tigers gave up a 16th straight stolen base, extending the longest active streak in the major leagues, according to STATS. Rangers 5, Astros 4: Elvis Andrus hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth to give Texas its major leagueleading 40th comeback win of the season with a victory over Houston. During a wild eighth inning, Rangers reliever

Tanner Scheppers gave up three hits, one walk, hit two batters and threw two wild pitches to surrender the lead. But closer Joe Nathan (4-2) shut down the Astros in the ninth to get the win. Orioles 4, Rays 2: Chris Davis hit his major leagueleading 46th home run, Adam Jones also homered, and Baltimore beat Tampa Bay to avoid a three-game sweep.

Sisler’s mark of 257 established in 1920. He has a .320 career average in the majors. According to STATS, Suzuki has the most hits through the first 13 seasons of a big league career. Paul Waner is second with 2,648 hits for Pittsburgh from 1926-38. “It’s unbelievable, 4,000 hits,” Alfonso Soriano said after hitting a tiebreaking two-run homer that led New York to a 4-2 victory over the Blue Jays. “To get 4,000 hits, you have to be a great hitter.” The slender 10-time AllStar seemingly can place the ball wherever he wants with a slashing swing that makes him look more like an epeewielding fencer than a professional baseball player. With a fashion sense nearly as unique as his swing, Suzuki often wears skinny jeans cuffed at the bottom to show off a rainbow of shoes

and socks. Sporting clothes by his favorite designer, Thom Browne, he looks more like a 20-something than a graying star. Despite his age, Suzuki should have a good shot at the revered major league mark of 3,000 hits. He is signed for one more year with New York at $6.5 million, and the 10time Gold Glove winner is still an outstanding outfielder. Ever since he was an 18year-old rookie for Orix who didn’t think he was ready to be called up to the big club, Suzuki’s approach has been one at-bat at a time. And his thought process wasn’t any different when he tried to embrace the idea of 3,000 major league hits. “I don’t make goals that are so far away,” he said. “What I do is do what I can every day and really build off that and see where that takes me.”

Davis connected against Jeremy Hellickson (10-7) leading off the fifth inning. The drive landed on Eutaw Street beyond the 25-foot wall in right field and gave the Orioles a 4-2 lead. Indians 3, Angels 1: Justin Masterson pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer and Cleveland completed a threegame sweep of Los Angeles. The Indians, who came in 51⁄2 games behind Detroit in the AL Central and 31⁄2 behind Oakland in the race for the second wild card spot, surpassed last season’s win total with 35 games to spare. White Sox 5, Royals 2: Dayan Viciedo hit his second career grand slam to highlight a five-run inning, and Andre Rienzo picked up his first career win as Chicago beat punchless Kansas City. Rienzo (1-0) allowed only a sacrifice fly to Mike Moustakas while cruising through six innings to win for the first time in five starts. The Brazilian right-hander allowed just five hits and two walks in helping the White Sox win their season-best fifth straight game.

TIMBERS From Page B1 The Timbers were coming off a 2-1 win at home over FC Dallas on Saturday, while RSL lost 4-2 at the Los Angeles Galaxy to set up Wednesday’s key conference matchup. Real Salt Lake was without goalkeeper Nick Rimando, who has started 20 games this season for the team, because of the flu. Jeff Attinella, who had made three appearances for RSL this season, started in goal and was peppered by the T imbers from the start, including a cross from Diego Valeri that was out of reach but hit the post. Attinella then saved the rebound shot. The Timbers went ahead in the 24th minute on Rodney Wallace’s header off a free

Paul was elected president of the NBA players’ association, replacing Derek Fisher and giving the reeling organization some much-needed star power. The vote by NBA player representatives came six months after the union fired Billy Hunter as executive director, a position that remains vacant and follows about 18 months of in-fighting and drama that occurred during the negotiations for the latest collective bargaining agreement. “It’s not about me as president or the first vice president, it’s about the players as a whole,” Paul said in a conference call.

PRO FOOTBALL NFL suspends Texans end for season opener HOUSTON — Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith lost his cool in a preseason game, and it’s going to keep him out of the team’s season opener. Smith was suspended by the NFL for Week 1 of the regular season and the last two preseason games for hitting Miami guard Richie Incognito with the Dolphins player’s helmet. Smith ripped the helmet off Incognito’s head, then hit Incognito on the shoulder with it Saturday night’ in the teams’ preseason game. Smith must sit out Houston’s visit to San Diego to begin the season Sept. 9. He also will lose about $400,000 in salary for his seventh rules violation since 2011.

Bostic receives fine for hard hit in game LAKE FOREST, Ill. — A person familiar with the situation says Chicago Bears linebacker Jonathan Bostic has been fined $21,000 for a hit during last week’s preseason game against San Diego. A second-round draft pick out of Florida last spring, Bostic delivered a hit to the Chargers’ Mike Willie during Thursday’s preseason game at Soldier Field that jarred the ball from the receiver and resulted in an incomplete pass. No penalty was called on the play.

Foster is nearing return to Houston rotation

HOUSTON — Houston running back Arian Foster was removed from the physically unable to perform list and practiced with the Texans for the first time since May. Foster strained his right calf in an offseason practice in late May and struggled with a sore back after recovering from that injury. “It’s really important,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “He’s been working, it’s not like he’s been standing around. He’s been trying to get all that soreness out and he felt really good the last two days. I think we took a big step forward.” Foster rushed for 1,424 yards and 15 touchdowns last year for his third straight 1,200-yard season. Kubiak doesn’t expect Foster to play Sunday against the Saints and he likely won’t play in Houston’s final prePRO BASKETBALL game on Aug. 29 at NBA union picks Paul to season Dallas. But that won’t keep become new president him from being ready for LAS VEGAS — Los Houston’s opener at San Angeles Clippers star Chris Diego on Sept. 9.

kick from Valeri, giving him assists on Portland’s last seven goals. It was Wallace’s fifth goal of the season. Veteran defender Nat Borchers tied it at 1 with an unassisted goal for Salt Lake in the 38th minute. With goalkeeper Portland Donovan Ricketts on the ground in a tangle of players in front of the net, Borchers tapped it in for his first goal of the season. Javier Morales’ penalty kick in the 43rd minute gave Real Salt Lake a 2-1 lead. Portland’s fans loudly booed the call, then taunted the officials with angry chants. Portland evened the score at 2 on a penalty kick by Valeri in the 57th minute after Morales was yellow-carded. Alhassan’s go-ahead was a cross that tipped off Attinella’s fingers. Playing a man down after

Yordany Alvarez was sent off with a red card in the 79th, Grossman scored his first career goal for Real Salt Lake when Portland appeared to let down its guard in stoppage time. “You saw at the end of the game. We’re up 3-2 and then we let our foot off the pedal,” Portland defender Michael Harrington said. “We were even down a man.” Grossman, who was subbed in late in the match, was making his first appearance in a match since being sidelined by a concussion on March 23. “I think when you enter this time of the season, you’re always thinking that you want to go places for wins, but if you walk out places with a draw at this time of the season, that has to be success,” RSL coach Jason Kreis said.

If you’ve got back pain, it may be time for an automatic Dear Tom and Ray: I have painful, incapacitating sciatica on the left side, most likely from constantly engaging the extremely hard clutch in my 2000 Toyota Celica. Have you heard of this association? I’m wondering if the clutch can be adjusted so that it’s looser. Or, if not, how should I go about finding an easier-to-clutch used car with manual transmission that is not a lemon or too costly to maintain? — Jill RAY: We’re not doctors, Jill ... although my brother does make the other mechanics at the shop work in hospital johnnies every week as part of Casual Friday. TOM: That’s just to give the customers some laughs. And because they find the open-back design to be cooler in the summer. RAY: You can’t adjust the feel of the clutch, Jill. Assuming it’s always been like this and didn’t suddenly change, it is what it is. In fact, we’ve always found Toyota clutches particularly light and easy to shift. T O M : So forget about making an appointment with your mechanic. Instead, make an appointment with a good physical therapist. On top of that, we’d recommend several other things if we were your medical-automotive advisers: RAY: No. 1, get a car with an automatic transmission. If a clutch is causing you incapacitating pain, why not eliminate that from your life? Even if it’s not the cause of your sciatica, it’s got to make it harder and less comfortable for you to drive. TOM: So, your next car should be an automatic. It also should have a power driver’s seat. In our extremely limited knowledge of lowerback issues, seating position and the angle of your legs visa-vis your torso make a great deal of difference. RAY: So it might not be the clutch in the Celica that caused your sciatica; it might be that the seating position is so low that your legs are folded up and putting strain your lumbar spine. TOM: I like how you threw in the term “lumbar spine” there. Makes it sound like you almost know what you’re talking about. RAY: Thanks. If you have a power-adjustable seat, you should be able to raise the height of the seat, which changes the angle at which your legs are sitting. The more seat adjustments you have available to you, the better the chance of finding a comfortable, less painful driving position. TOM: So I think you need a different car. RAY: But whether you go new or used, go automatic. And go with a power seat. And go see a physical therapist. Good luck, Jill.

Is there help for this smelly car? Dear Tom and Ray:

TOM AND RAY MAGLIOZZI My daughter has a Volvo named Smelly. It has a very distinct chemical smell that we cannot get rid of. We have had the car detailed, we’ve put an ozone machine in it for four days, we’ve left the doors open for days in the sun — nothing puts a dent in the smell. She is 17 years old and drives to school every day, 45 minutes each way. She is in the car a lot, and I am concerned that it is unhealthy for her. Some of her friends say it smells like crayons. — Carolina RAY: Does it smell like the Crayola 64 box with the built-in sharpener? Or more like a box of DixonTiconderogas? TOM: This one’s actually a mystery to us, Carolina, as well as to many other people. There’s a minor epidemic of European car owners having flashbacks to first grade when they’re driving. RAY: VW owners seem to complain the most about this mysterious crayon odor, but we see complaints from Volvo, Mercedes and BMW owners, too. And no one seems to know what material in the car is causing it. T O M : If you haven’t already, you might as well ask your mechanic to take a sniff. Because if it’s not this Mysterious European Crayon Odor, it could be something common, like a small oil leak from the valve cover, or a leaking heater core, and an experienced mechanic should be able to identify it with a sniff or two. RAY: You’ll have to find a mechanic in the “sweet spot” of his career, when he’s smelled enough leaks to know right away what it is but hasn’t smelled so many leaks that the inside of his nose is charred and useless. T O M : Once you know what kind of a leak you’re looking for, you're more than halfway to fixing it. RAY: But my guess is that it’s not going to be oil or coolant (or an old magenta crayon that some kid pushed into the vents 100,000 miles ago). And your mechanic will be as stumped as everyone else is. TOM: Speculation centers on the leather used for the seats of those cars (which does have an odd smell, although I would describe it more as “decaying carcass” than “crayon”), or the soundinsulation material that keeps engine and road noise from being overwhelming. 19) — Make a point of relying on past experience, especially where money matters are concerned. Lending and borrowing will lead to problems. Invest in yourselfss and your abilities, not someone else. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Look over contracts and make a commitment to someone you want to have in your life for a long time.Your options are plentiful, but your choices should be specific. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Keep your thoughts and emotions in check. Now is not the time to start a war. Avoid being taken advantage of and use diplomacy when handling arduous situations.You need to be tough but fair. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Participate in any activities or ventures that arise today, and show everyone what you have to offer.You will impress even the most skeptical individual, giving you many new channels in which to operate. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You can make a difference if you act on behalf of someone or something you believe in.Your interaction with someone influential will lead to an interesting relationship. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Steer clear of anyone making impulsive and inappropriate choices. Focus on something you enjoy doing and you can develop a service or product that can lead to extra income. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Be prepared to make alterations that ensure the safety of the people who depend on you.Your unique way of helping others will be rewarded in an unusual and generous manner.
