Interrupted Air Support Stymies Fight against Snake River Canyon Fire “If we had a helicopter, we’d have this fire out in no time. But there’s too much burning right now.”
BY KIMBERLEE KRUESI firstname.lastname@example.org
FILER • Dark plumes of smoke taunted firefighters Monday as they stood watching flames slowly consume yet another Russian olive tree at the bottom of the Snake River Canyon. The steep grade prevented fire crews from plunging into the canyon and making any sort of headway to contain the flames. A jungle of sagebrush, grass and Russian olives
Joe Baratti , Filer Fire Department provided just enough fuel for flames to mosey across the canyon’s south side and offer up a hazy puff of smoke to signify where it was moving next. The 75-acre wildfire started burning Sunday
night only 4 miles west of the Perrine Bridge. Although the fire wasn’t threatening homes or roads,firefighters worried that the flames could travel up the canyon wall and burn precious wheat fields planted along the edge.
Sunday, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management sent several helicopters to dump water on the flames, hoping to contain it. But the agency eventually pulled the air support to work on suppressing larger wildfires in the area,said BLM spokesman Josh Olsen.The fire wasn’t burning on BLM lands, and other wildfires demanded their attention. “If we had a helicopter, we’d have this fire out in no time,” said Joe Baratti of the Filer Fire Department. “But there’s too much Please see AIR SUPPORT, A2
Buhl Man Tries REDFISH LAKE FIRE Interviews Continue Minidoka County to Stab Officer CLOSES ROADS AND for Sheriff Replacement CAMPGROUND with Syringe BY LAURIE WELCH email@example.com
Suspect arrested for for possessing bomb, launcher. BY ALISON GENE SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org
BUHL • A police officer spotted a Buhl man with an outstanding warrant, but when he went to make an arrest, the suspect first tried to stab him with a syringe Elkin and then was arrested on charges of possessing a mortar and a device to launch it, police say. Robert Elkin, 41, was arraigned Monday in Twin Falls County court on charges of unlawful possession of a bomb or destructive device, possession of a controlled substance, assault, possession of paraphernalia and destruction of evidence. About 9:45 a.m. Saturday, July 20, police Sgt. Kevin Hanners was patrolling near Buhl Storage, 801 Barsness Ave. Hanners gave this account in an interview with the Times-News and in his
police report: While wroking as the only Buhl officer on patrol, Hanners spotted Elkin and another man rummaging in a pickup truck parked beside the north fence of the storage units. Two other men were also present. Hanners knew Elkin had an active arrest warrant, so he pulled his patrol car into the storage units. As he did, Elkin began to walk away, but Elkin stopped when Hanners informed him of the warrant. Hanners handcuffed Elkin and started to walk him to his patrol car. After about 25 feet,Elkin began to struggle and pulled his hands toward his right front pants pocket. He pulled out a syringe, removed its safety cap and bent his wrist toward Hanners, pointing the needle at him. “There was a struggle over it, then he dropped it,” Hanners said. “As far as I could tell, there wasn’t anything in it.” Elkin used his thumb to Please see SYRINGE,A2

ed just above Redfish Lake Monday night, forcing authorities to close roads and evacuate campsites. Both lanes of Idaho 75 were closed near milepost 183 between Fish Creek and Redfish Lake roads, and roadblocks were erected. The area campground was being evacuated, though a lodge employee said the evacuations were advised but not mandatory. Details about the fire were few Monday evening. North of the lake fire, the Papoose Fire continues burning, as it has for almost two weeks. Feeding off grass, brush and strands of timber, the Papoose continues to invade deeper into the Salmon-Challis National Forest. Firefighters battling through rugged terrain and staggering cliffs also are patrolling the Middle Fork Salmon River corridor by boat to assess campsites between Big Creek and Goat Creek and to remove potential fire fuel as needed.

RUPERT • Four of the nine remaining candidates for the Minidoka County sheriff’s job told county commissioners Monday why they should be the next sheriff. Twin Falls Sheriff’s Patrol Sgt. Kenneth Mencl, Minidoka Sheriff’s Capt. Dan Kindig, Minidoka Sheriff Detective Eric Snarr and Minidoka County Coroner C.V. “Lucky” Bourn met with the county officials Monday. The commissioners interviewed Cassia Sheriff Lt. Chris Jensen, Minidoka County Staff Sgt. Jim Broner and Timothy Pethtel, who works for Transystems but has a background in law enforcement on Friday. Today, the commissioners will interview Rupert Police Detective Jeff McEwen, who ran against former sheriff Kevin Halverson in the 2012 election. They will also interview former Rupert Police Chief Randall White. The interviews will start at 9:30 a.m. One of the nine applicants will be named sheriff on July 25 replacing Halverson, who resigned July 1 after he was charged with misuse of public funds by a public officer. The new sheriff will serve until the mid-term elections in November 2014.

THE MARKET AT A GLANCE
S&P 500 Edges Higher, Helped by Gold Miners NEW YORK (AP) • Rising commodity prices made up for a disappointing quarterly performance at McDonalds, lifting the stock market Monday. Higher gold and copper prices boosted the stocks of mining companies in early afternoon trading. That helped offset lackluster results from a handful of large U.S. companies. McDonald’s stock fell after it reported a weak second-quarter and warned of a tough year ahead. Media company Gannett dropped after its revenues fell short of financial analysts’ expectations.

Curious Mind NAMING WILDFIRES How do the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service name a wildfire? Are there rules, or could the wildfire be named anything? he Incident commander who arrives on scene will normally name the fire.It is generally based on a landmark in the area,” said Mike Guerry with the Three Creek Rangeland Fire Protection Association.“In some instances,it may be based on the nearest GPS location that shows up on their program. Sometimes when that is used,it may not be the nearest physical location,as we know them locally.” For example, the recent Three Mile Fire was along the 17 Mile Road on Signal Butte.“Thus, for those of us locally, it would have been better identified as either the Signal Butte or 17 Mile

Fire. However, what showed up on the GPS was the Three Mile Crossing below the Cedar Mesa Reservoir, and it is my understanding that they named it due to that showing up,” said Guerry. Also, a brief name is used a lot in radio traffic, said Guerry. “Therefore, like many things, it is not an exact science, and they just try and do the best that they can. Secondly, it is more for individual fire identification purposes used in dispatching assets than it is for general information purposes.” Rangeland Fire Protection Associations are volunteer firefighters set up by the state to fight fire on pri-
vate and state rangelands within the association boundaries. With mutual aid agreements, these associations give local ranchers the ability to fight fires with the BLM in a safe and coordinated manner. They help with initial attack and logistics in the early stages. In addition to spotting fires, RFPA members have local knowledge of the roads and terrain, and they help the BLM mobilize quickly. They are also able to build fire lines in the early stages of a fire. “I know many of them used geographic names,” said BLM Jarbidge Field Manager Brian Davis.

emperatures this week will linger in the 90s, and the threat of wildfires also will continue. Overall, the forecast this week is hot and dry. Today will be another hot day as highs reach the mid to upper 90s. It will be mostly sunny to sunny with a breeze out of the south-southwest between 5 and 15 mph. We will have to monitor fire danger the next few days, as more red flag warnings — defined as critical fire weather conditions occurring now or soon — could be issued by the National Weather Service. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, and high temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior. By Wednesday and Thursday, monsoonal moisture will increase. This will raise dew points a little, increase some clouds and bring the chance of isolated afternoon thunderstorms. Most will not see rain from storms, but there could be dry thunderstorms. These are thunderstorms where the rain evaporates before reaching the ground, but lightning and wind can reach the surface and cause and spread wildfires. Friday through the weekend will be mostly sunny, with temperatures on Friday in the mid 90s but falling back into the low 90s by the weekend. We have a slight chance of an isolated storm or two.

burning right now.” Baratti was one of the first firefighters at the scene Sunday evening. After driving down bumpy county roads, he arrived to see flames crawling east along the canyon grade. By Monday, Baratti and his coworkers were confident the fire had stopped moving toward Twin Falls and now was headed west. Peering over the edge of the chasm, firefighters could see the fire’s trail following the snaking river.Most of the green and plush vegetation remained untouched, but the Russian olives and sagebrush were flattened across the rock. Back at their makeshift headquarters, firefighters gathered behind a ranch and talked strategy. With no whiteboard available, one crew member whipped out a dry erase marker and began writing on the hood of a

By midday, the hood was covered in phone numbers,lists of what equipment was available and other important notes quickly scribbled Firefighters suspect the wildfire was human-caused because no lightning was reported in the area Sunday. But Baratti said it could be almost impossible to tell
how the fire started exactly. By Monday afternoon, the Filer Fire Department finally had received one piece of good news: The BLM was sending a helicopter to help contain the flames. Firefighters could not guess when the Snake River Canyon fire will be fully controlled.

ing dog to the scene. Engbaum and the K-9, Britt, arrived, and the dog indicated that drugs were in the truck. At that point,the two officers began searching. “You’ve got a bomb here,” Engbaum told Hanners, holding up a metal pipe. One end of the pipe was unscrewed,and black powder residue was inside. If both ends had been closed,the situation would have been more dangerous,Hanners said. The officers called the Twin Falls bomb squad and had the people who were with Elkin move away from the truck. Elkin overheard the call to the bomb squad and said, “There ain’t no bomb in that truck.” After moving his patrol car,
Hanners asked Elkin about the device. “I made it to be launched from an air cannon,” Elkin told Hanners. “It goes up in the air and is designed to come down and blow up.” A deputy took Elkin to the Twin Falls County Jail, and bomb squad members Sgt. Ryan Howe and Officer Matt Triner arrived and determined that the pipe was a homemade mortar and had been used before. Then they found launching devices for the mortar in Elkin’s truck bed. The spring-loaded pipe was made with a gun primer. When it hit the ground, the primer would fire, setting off the powder in the pipe. “Sgt. Howe stated that if Rob had been able to pack
enough powder inside the pipe, it would create a large amount of shrapnel,” Hanners wrote. The launching devices were two propane tanks modified to launch the mortar.Howe vented the propane tank that still contained air. Hanners also reported finding a pipe with methamphetamine residue. Buhl Police Chief Eric Foster said police don’t believe Elkin had any terrorist intent by having the devices. Hanners said he wasn’t able to learn while interviewing Elkin why he had the devices,other than for personal enjoyment. Hanners called the find surprising. While other Buhl officers have found explosive devices before, he said this was his first.

break off the needle tip, then dropped it on the ground. Hanners then pushed Elkin against the trunk of his car. “This encounter spanned the distance of 25 to 30 feet,” Hanners wrote. “During this time I had a well-founded fear that Rob was trying to stab me with the needle.” As Hanners pinned Elkin against his car, Elkins said: “Hanners, just relax, it ain’t nothing. Just treat me with some respect and dignity.” Elkin told Hanners he believed the needle was clean but had planned to use it for illegal drugs. Hanners called Cpl.Jeremy Engbaum and his drug-sniff-

Friday is a 5 month old Labrador/ Rottweiler cross. Despite his age he is one of the laziest dogs you’ll meet! He loves to hang around and receive belly rubs and chew on his toys. He is great with other dogs, cats, kids, squirrels, frogs, and anything else that moves. Friday is going to be a big dog when he grows up but he is going to be a big love.

neighbor of 41 years, said he enjoyed the many hunting and fishing trips they took. “He was a wonderful man,” Mauman said. Posey’s most memorable feature was his striking honesty, he said. “He just thought he could help by being a good, honest person and lived that way all his life.” Posey is survived by his three children — Lindsey Posey, of Rollingstone, Minn.; Becky Reeves, of Kimberly; and Malone, of Eden. His first wife, Patricia Modlin, died in 1982. His second wife, Anna Lou, resides at Wynwood Senior Living.He also is survived by seven grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.

and served from 1986 to 1994.He was also a deacon in his church and involved in many other aspects of the community,including delivering for Meals on Wheels. Malone said she has been served well by a lesson her father taught her. He worked hard to sort through town gossip to get to the truth — a skill that served him well as mayor. She said he told her: “Always look at both sides of a situation and not jump to conclusions.” Posey served as the elementary school’s crossing guard for six years and was featured in the Times-News’ “Your Neighbor”column last November.He told a reporter about the time he saved a boy from being hit in a parking lot and how his favorite part of the job was listening to the youngsters wish him a good morning. “You feel good when you do something like that,” he told the reporter.“It’s a great job for someone in a small town, and I’m a people person.“ “The kids made him young,” Malone said.

of vandalism acts were reported over the weekend in Twin Falls. Six or seven calls were made regarding damaged vehicles, including several cases of paint damage, said city spokesman Joshua Palmer. The most severe case was a van on which someone apparently used a key to scrape off the paint, Palmer said. The van also had shaving cream sprayed on it and cracked windows. The incidents were reported in south Twin Falls along Noble Street, between Highland and Park avenues.

only child in Kimberly, Jesse Posey considered the small town his family. At each step in life,he grew closer with that family — when he started working at the post office, when he joined the Kimberly Christian Church,when he became the town’s mayor and when he eventually became the crosswalk guard for Kimberly Elementary School. “When he was postmaster, he knew everybody. And that’s one thing that kind of bothered him after he retired — with the town getting bigger, he didn’t know everybody,” said Vicki Malone, his youngest daughter. The former mayor’s attitude toward serving the town came naturally, as he was a helping, considerate man who enjoyed being around others, Malone said. Posey died at his home Saturday after an 18-year battle with cancer.He was 84. As a junior in Kimberly High School, Posey began working for the post office and Anderson Lumber, which were across the street from each other, Malone said. “He would work in the mornings and then he would have a break, so he worked at Anderson Lumber during that break,” she said. “Then he would go back and work at the post office.“ Posey was the town’s postmaster from 1974 to 1984. He was elected mayor

Posey, 84, passed away at his home Saturday, July 20, 2013. He was born to Garrett and Nettie Givens Posey on May 10, 1929, in Altamont, Tenn. He moved to Idaho in 1935. He was raised by his mother with the help of his Uncle Si and Uncle Robert Givens. He helped the family’s economic situation by setting pins at the local bowling alley and also selling The Grit newspapers. In 1948, he graduated from Kimberly High School after being a member of student council, K-Club, the basketball and baseball teams and the Skyrocket staff. As president of his class, he led the annual reunions on Good Neighbor Day weekends, was on the Kimberly School Foundation Board and in that capacity became the catalyst for the “Let’s Finish It” campaign to complete the gym which had been left unfinished during World War II. Jesse married Patricia Modlin on May 31, 1952. Pat preceded him in death on Jan. 3, 1982, but during their 29-year marriage, three children were born: Lindsey, Becky and Vicki. On May 28, 1989, he married Anna Lou Callen. He started working at the Kimberly post office in 1947 and was postmaster from 1974 to 1984. He also worked at Anderson Lumber in Kimberly, was a bank courier for Twin Falls Bank and Trust, aided with the census,and delivered Meals on Wheels for the Ageless Senior Center in Kimberly, He joined Kimberly Christian Church in 1944 and served as a deacon. Jesse and Pat were voted Kimberly Boosters of the Year in 1963 to 1964. He coached baseball, was a Friend of Stricker Ranch and spent many hours fishing and hunting throughout southeastern Idaho. He enjoyed bowling and golf, and his slim body was a testament to his active lifestyle. Until just a few weeks before his death, he was still doing the daily crossword puzzle. Jesse’s life is a permanent thread in the fabric of Kimberly. As mayor from 1986 to 1994, an active member of the Kimberly Alumnae Association, as postmaster, as a deacon in his church and, last but not least, as a twice-a-day Crossing Guard for Kimberly School District. Jesse’s ability to discern the needs of others and to respond with a smile, a gesture and, for the children, a pencil, a pair of gloves on a cold day or a sucker: that is his legacy.He often analyzed problems and chose the “road less traveled.“ He was not deterred by “popular opinion” and, for those whom he loved, he expected that every day they would take the opportunity to make the world a better place.

BURLEY • Goode Motor has been selling Fords throughout south-central Idaho since Aug. 1, 1938. Owner Garth Williams received a plaque and diamond-inlaid pin Friday from Ford Motor Co.’s regional manager to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the business. “Over the years, I’ve appreciated working with Ford and all the guys,” said Williams, who has been with Goode for 35 years. “It seems like we’ve been here 1,000 years. Not very many
dealerships make it that long. We attribute that to high repeat business. People come back over many years and continue to buy here, so we try to give them the best deal possible. It’s been a good journey.” Ford Regional Manager Chris Thornton presented the award to Williams, who said the dealership will run special financing through August for new and used cars. “We’re probably without question the oldest Ford dealership in south-central Idaho,” said Williams, who also owns a Ford dealership in Sun Valley.
cleaned off the streets from an April 30 Jerome fire that destroyed three buildings, displaced 16 residents and caused more than $1 million in damage. Remnants of ash and soot haunted business fronts in the city until more than 100 volunteers painted awnings, scrubbed sidewalks and cleaned windows for 10 days in June. Nearly all of the firefighters who put out the April blaze volunteered to clean up the last remnants of the fire as part of Operation Facelift, an effort to beautify various downtowns throughout south-central Idaho. “Operation Facelift almost came at a perfect time in conjunction with the fire,” said Fire Capt. Jeremy Presnell. “The city public works crew did an excellent job within a day or two of the fire, cleaning up debris. But the soot and stuff was still hanging around. Even though it’s not visible, it’s still there. You could take your hand across a window, and you’re going to have black fingertips.” This year, Operation Facelift Jerome took first place over 17 other locations. “It’s fantastic that the judges
“It shows the community is dedicated and there’s a lot of community pride. Citizens take their time to assist in a project like this where they may not be painting their building or sweeping in front of their business, but actually coming out and doing something that’s good for the community.” Zoe Monahan, community development director chose us to win this year,” said Jon Melone, director of the Jerome Chamber of Commerce. “I don’t know if it had anything to do with the fire and sympathy for the community or not, but just the time we put into it every year, it’s very worthwhile and gratifying.” Thirty more volunteers turned out this year than last, painting buildings, pulling weeds and scraping gum off sidewalks. “Believer’s Church in Jerome canceled their Wednesday service so that all of those who regularly attend would come out and help,” said Melone. Fourteen buildings in three years have been face-lifted, he said, which helped attract three new businesses to downtown. “One of the buildings was purchased by a gal, and she renovated the interior to make it into a salon. She told me the reason she bought it was because of the work we had
done on the outside of the building,” Melone said. Firefighters power-washing buildings and streets is a trademark of Operation Facelift and makes the event more meaningful, Melone said. “It’s pretty amazing when the fire department comes through and hoses off the streets, how much an improvement that makes just in and of itself, just to get the dust and dirt off. Huge.” The number of volunteers this year reflects community pride, said community development director Zoe Monahan. “It shows the community is dedicated and there’s a lot of community pride,” Monahan said. “Citizens take their time to assist in a project like this where they may not be painting their building or sweeping in front of their business, but actually coming out and doing something that’s good for the community.”
McDonald’s Predicts Tough Year Despite New Items BY CANDICE CHOI AP Food Industry Writer
NEW YORK • McDonald’s is mixing up its menu with healthier, fresher sounding items such as its chicken McWraps, but not enough customers are biting. The world’s biggest hamburger chain on Monday reported a second-quarter profit that rose 4 percent but fell short of Wall Street expectations.It also said July sales are expected to be relatively flat and warned of a tough year ahead,given the heightened competition and rough economic conditions around the world. “We don’t have as much pricing power,” said CEO Don Thompson, noting that the company wouldn’t be able to easily charge more for its food without the risk of scaring off customers. McDonald’s shares fell 2.7 percent, or $2.69, to close at $97.58. Over the past year,the stock is up 13 percent. The company, which has more than 34,000 locations worldwide, says global sales edged up 1 percent at restaurants open at least a year. The figure rose by the same amount in the U.S.,where McDon-

But the small sales bump in the U.S. wasn’t enough to offset the higher advertising and promotion-
al costs for those new items, as well as the reduced efficiency in restaurants. Operating margin declined slightly as a result. “We threw a lot of new products at restaurants this quarter,” Chief Financial Officer Pete Bensen said in a call with analysts.“So our efficiency per crew hour was down a
little bit.” The tepid sales growth for the quarter ended June 30 reflects the challenges facing McDonald’s Corp., which for years had been a standout in the fast-food industry. Part of the problem is that economic conditions remain weak in many regions of the world,with the company repeatedly noting that people are being more careful about eating out. That’s true in Europe and the region encompassing Asia, the Middle East and Africa, the company said, with both posting slight declines in sales at restaurants open at least a year. But another challenge for McDonald’s is the growing number of chains that offer quick,better quality food at higher prices, including Chipotle, Noodles & Company, Panera Bread and others. Those chains are reshaping expectations when people go out to eat. Traditional fast-food chains have taken note and are scrambling to keep pace. Wendy’s, which reports its results Tuesday, is in the process of renovating its restaurants to be more inviting and modern. Its new burgers are positioned as premium, and the chain has been making tweaks such as intro-
ducing natural-cut French fries and softening the edges of its famously square burgers so they don’t look so processed. Even KFC, which is owned by Yum Brands Inc., is opening a test restaurant that has a more upscale design and menu next month. To raise its own image, McDonald’s has been revamping its restaurants with a sleeker design as well. It’s also making tweaks to existing items, such as replacing the bacon in its wraps and burgers with a thicker, applewood-smoked variety. But whether Thompson, who took over last summer, will be able to keep McDonald’s image up to date as it struggles though the tough economic climate remains to be seen. In the previous quarter, McDonald’s reported its first global quarterly sales decline at restaurants open at least a year in about a decade. On Monday, the company trimmed its estimate for new restaurant openings to reduce its capital expenditures.

Idaho Finance Department Reports Near-record Fiscal Year Business Filings BOISE • New numbers for fiscal year 2013 show improvement across large segments of the financial services industry in Idaho, says the new data released by Gavin Gee, director of the Idaho Department of Finance. Gee said the department accepted more than 156,000 business filings, licenses and registrations, an increase of nearly 3 percent over 2012 and the second-highest in department history. “These numbers demonstrate that Idaho’s economic recovery is gaining traction and that many financial service businesses outside the state want to do business in Idaho,” Gee wrote in a statement. New filings include submissions for such thngs as securities issuer, plus applications for licenses, branching and mergers under 23 financial service laws administered by the department. The securities bureau again reported a record number — 96,802 — of securities professionals licensing to do business in Idaho.Signs of growth are beginning to appear in the mortgage industry, as well, with the aggregate number of brokers and lenders having increased after five years of shrinkage. The number of department-licensed mortgage loan originators increased some 33 percent,to 2,140, over the previous fiscal year. More than 95 percent of department-licensed companies and professionals reside outside Idaho; these licensees are in every state and 19 foreign countries.
Idaho Banking/Credit Union Industries Continue to Grow TWIN FALLS • Idaho had no bank or credit union failures during fiscal year 2013. Nationally, 36 banks and 17 credit unions failed during the fiscal year. For the first three quarters of fiscal 2013, Idaho-based banks showed generally improved performance and financial condition.The average aggregate Return on Assets increased from 0.51 percent to 0.65 percent; the percentage of noncurrent loans to total loans decreased from 3.79 percent to 2.51 percent; and charged-off loans declined from 0.83 percent to 0.33 percent. The average core capital ratio for Idaho-based banks, however, declined modestly from 12.03 percent to 11.72 percent.
Idaho Financial Fraud Cases Up, Amount of Losses Down TWIN FALLS • The Idaho Department of Finance investigated potential losses of more than $58 million during the fiscal year, down from $80 million the previous year. The department initiated or completed 55 enforcement actions (up from 40 last fiscal year) involving 63 defendants/respondents.It also issued cease-and-desist orders against nine unlicensed Internet payday lenders around the world. The proliferation of unlicensed Internet payday lenders poses not only significant risks to consumers, but also an ongoing challenge to state and federal regulators, said department Director Gavin Gee. “We hope that Idahoans take notice and avoid dealing with such unlicensed and unknown entities,” Gee wrote in a statement.

IT’S A BOY! NATION + WORLD Woman Who Fell from Texas Roller Coaster IDed ARLINGTON, Texas • Authorities have identified the woman who fell to her death from a roller coaster at a North Texas amusement park as a 52-year-old Dallas resident. The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office said Monday that Rosa Ayala-Goana suffered “multiple traumatic injuries” when she fell Friday from the Texas Giant roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas. The amusement park is in Arlington, just west Dallas. Witnesses told authorities that Ayala-Goana expressed concern moments before the 14-story ride began that the safety bar had not completely engaged. A Texas Department of Insurance spokesman said Sunday that Six Flags was in compliance with state regulations requiring amusement ride operators to have $1 million liability insurance on each ride, and provide proof of an annual safety inspection by a certified engineer.

China Says Death Toll from NW Quake Rises to 75 BEIJING • China says the death toll from a shallow earthquake in country’s northwest has risen to 75. The quake struck a dry, hilly farming area in western China early Monday near the city of Dingxi in Gansu province. The government’s earthquake monitoring service said an additional 459 people were injured. The center said the initial quake at 7:45 a.m. (2345 GMT Sunday) was magnitude-6.6 and subsequent tremors included a magnitude-5.6. The center said it struck about 12.4 miles beneath the surface, while the Gansu provincial earthquake administration said it was just 3.7 miles deep. The U.S. Geological Survey measured the magnitude of the initial quake as 5.9 and the depth at 6 miles.
Prince William’s wife, Kate,has given birth to a boy, a child now third in line to the British throne. The child was born Monday,after many Britons woke up to the news that Kate had gone into labor with the couple’s first child. The birth announcement, via a press release from Kensington Palace, said the boy was born at 4:24 p.m. weighing 8 pounds 6 ounces. The royal birth recalled that of the baby’s father, William, in 1982, at the same central London hospital. Many remember the moment when he was carried out in his mother Princess Diana’s arms with proud father Prince Charles at their side. William and Kate’s son is expected to follow Charles and William to the throne. No one can tell what political and personal changes the intervening years will bring, but the baby can be
expected to become the head of state of 16 countries, including Britain, Australia and Canada, and possibly the head of the Commonwealth, which covers 54 nations. The child will also eventually become Supreme Governor of the Church of England. The baby represents a living link to Britain’s imperial history — the infant is the great-great-great-greatgreat-grandchild of Queen Victoria, who ruled at the peak of British power. Many Britons had hoped that William and Kate would start a family shortly after their gala 2011 wedding, which drew a global television audience in the hundreds of millions. The couple waited, however,until William was nearly finished with his military work as a search and rescue helicopter pilot based at an air base in a remote island off the coast of Wales.
What’s in a Royal Name? Lots of Tradition BY DANICA KIRKA Associated Press
LONDON • When it comes to Prince William and his wife Kate’s new baby boy, choosing just one name won’t do. You need about three or four. Just ask the father,William Arthur Philip Louis.Or the grandfather, Charles Philip Arthur George. Or the greatgrandmother, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary. “I think because the child is going to be the third in line to the throne,they have to maintain all this tradition,” said Pauline Maclaran, a professor of marketing and consumer research at Royal Holloway and the co-author of the upcoming book,“Royal Fever: The British Monarchy in Consumer Culture.” “They’ll go for three or four names and ... be able to make the right nod to the right people,” she said. And it can’t just be any old moniker, either. It has to have some gravitas: Noble names are steeped in history, which explains why, as royal baby fervor mounted in recent days, thousands of bets rolled in to British bookmakers for James and Alexandra. Albert Mehrabian, a professor emeritus of psychology at UCLA and an expert on names, firmly voted for James — which far outdistanced George in the popularity stakes. “Names make impressions, good and bad,” he said. “Among all the names I’ve studied,James rated the highest.”
Federal Judge Delays North Dakota Abortion Law BISMARCK, N.D. • A federal judge has temporarily blocked a new North Dakota law that bans abortion when a fatal heartbeat is detected — as early as six weeks into pregnancy. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland in Bismarck granted a temporary injunction Monday that blocks the law from taking effect on Aug. 1. The law was passed this year by the North Dakota Legislature. It would outlaw the procedure as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before some women know they are pregnant. The law was one of four that the Republican-controlled Legislature and GOP Gov. Jack Dalrymple passed this year that combined make North Dakota the most restrictive state in the nation in which to get an abortion.

Alleged Victim’s Brother Curses at Bulger Witness BOSTON •The brother of a woman allegedly killed by James “Whitey” Bulger exploded in anger after Bulger’s former partner identified him as a drug user and informant. The outburst came during testimony Monday by Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi at Bulger’s racketeering trial. Flemmi had been testifying about the 1981 killing of Debra Davis. She had been Flemmi’s girlfriend, and Flemmi says Bulger strangled her after Flemmi told her that he and Bulger were FBI informants. Flemmi testified that her brother Steve Davis had been an informant. When he told jurors that, Steve Davis jumped up and shouted across the courtroom, and Flemmi quickly tried to correct himself, saying he meant to identify another Davis brother. Flemmi also apologized. Steve Davis shouted an obscenity and called Flemmi a liar. — Associated Press
Deadly Iraq Prison Raids Crowds Greet Pope Free Hundreds of Inmates Francis in Brazil BY ADAM SCHRECK AND QASSIM ABDULZAHRA Associated Press
BAGHDAD • Iraqi security forces locked down areas around the infamous Abu Ghraib prison and another high-security detention facility on Baghdad’s outskirts Monday to hunt for escaped inmates and militants after daring insurgent assaults set hundreds of detainees free. The carefully orchestrated late-night attacks killed dozens Sunday, including at least 25 members of the Iraqi security forces. Insurgents fired dozens of mortar shells and detonated suicide and car bombs, drawing Iraqi forces into firefights that
lasted more than an hour. Attacks elsewhere claimed at least 18 more lives on Monday, many of them soldiers, highlighting the rapidly deteriorating security conditions across Iraq. The prisons in Abu Ghraib and Taji house thousands of prisoners, including convicted al-Qaida militants. Exactly one year ago, al-Qaida’s Iraq arm launched a campaign called “Breaking the Walls” that made freeing its imprisoned members a top priority. A surge of violence across Iraq has killed more than 3,000 people since the start of April, and the assaults on the prisons laid bare the degree to which security has eroded in the country in recent months.

WHAT IF BEN YSURA RETIRES?
The State of Idaho Should Choose Its Representative, Not the Club for Growth n Monday, the President of the Club for Growth Political Action Committee, former Representative Chris Chocola, penned a piece for the Times-News laying out the case for why he believes it is time to replace Congressman Mike Simpson. The truth is that it shouldn’t be up to Chris Chocola and his big-moneyed friends at the Club for Growth to decide who represents Idaho’s 2nd Congressional District — it ought to be up the Idahoans who actually live in that district. Unlike Congressman Chocola and his wealthy buddies at the Club for Growth, Mike Simpson was born and raised in Idaho, and has been elected and re-elected by the people of the 2nd District eight times to represent them in Washington. He answers to them at the ballot box every two years — and to date those voters have continued to trust his leadership. This time, however, things will be different. The Club for Growth is promising to pour tons of outside cash into this race in an effort to buy this election — and they will stop at nothing to get there way. The Club for Growth specializes in smear campaigns, they routinely distort the
Steve LaTourette Main Street Advocacy
records of the Republicans they oppose, fail to tell the truth about their own organization and rely on their wealthy donors to bigfoot Republican primaries and bully Republicans in Congress. The scorecard they the love to tout is phonier than a three-dollar bill. Their involvement in Idaho is par for the course. My former colleague, Congressman Chocola, neglects to mention in his opinion piece that many of the positions take by Mike Simpson that his organization has criticized him for are the exact same positions taken by Congressman Chocola when he was in Congress. From voting for Medicare expansion, to voting for increased transportation spending, to votes to increase the debt limit, to raising the federal minimum wage, there are literally dozens of examples of the rank hypocrisy of Chocola and the Club for Growth. Hypocrisy is nothing new for the Club for Growth. While claiming to be the champions of free markets and the beacons of ideological purity, the truth is that
the Club for Growth’s Board is comprised of wealthy individuals who have financially supported Democrats, advocated for the individual mandate that is central to Obamacare, own or operate businesses that have sucked up millions in earmarks, and criticize members for voting the exact same way as their own President did. Main Street Advocacy, the organization that I head, has pledged to match the Club for Growth dollar for dollar. For every dollar the Club spends distorting the facts, we will spend a dollar setting them straight. Members of Congress are elected by the men and women who live in their districts, their loyalty and responsibility is to those constituents not to the Club for Growth. The voters of Idaho’s 2nd Congressional District deserve a fair debate of ideas, of records, of vision by the candidates vying to represent them in Washington, D.C. The process should not be subverted and corrupted by big money special interests like those at the Club for Growth. The money spent by Main Street Advocacy will level the playing field and expose the truth about those who seek to buy and sell members of Congress. I wish that Main Street
Advocacy was not necessary, I wish that instead of spending money in primary fights, that we could spend money looking to expand our majority in the House and working to recapture the Senate. Unfortunately, because of groups like the Club for Growth and others, the efforts of Main Street Advocacy are necessary. The days of the special interests bigfooting Republican primaries and nominating candidates like Christine “I’m Not a Witch” O’Donnell and Todd “legitimate rape” Akin are over. These special interests will no longer have a free hand to manipulate the process and destroy the Republican Party. We don’t pretend to know who the people of Idaho who should send to Washington to represent them. At the end of the day, we trust the people of Idaho to make that judgment for themselves. Whether the voters of the 2nd District decide to send Mike Simpson back for a 9th term or whether they decide to go with someone new, that decision is theirs and their alone — and we will fight like hell to make sure they have the chance to make that call free from the manipulation of outside special interest groups like the Club for Growth.
Steve LaTourette is a Republican, a former House Representative for Ohio and the President of Main Street Advocacy.
daho’s 26th Secretary of State,the talented and well-liked Chris Ben Ysursa,when Carlson campaigning to succeed The Carlson Chronicle his old boss and fellow Basque,the long-serving and never beaten Pete T.Cenarrusa,would often look an audience straight in the eye and without blinking in a perfect deadpan manner say that a little known clause in Idaho’s Constitution required the office of Secretary of State be held by a person of Basque origin. One can forgive any Idahoan for thinking that must be true since between Cenarrusa (36 years) and Ysursa (12 years) the office has been held by men of Basque origin and heritage for almost 50 years.Like Cenarrusa,Ysursa could hold the office for as long as he wants. He is a young 64 years of age and he draws support not just from Republicans but also independents and Democrats.When running for his third term in 2010,even former four-term Democratic Governor Cecil Andrus’SUV sported a Ysursa bumper sticker. But Ysursa is rumored to be giving serious thought to retiring.When asked by supporters,friends and reporters,Ysursa gives the same answer — he’ll announce his intentions at the end of this year. A native of Boise and a 1967 graduate of Bishop Kelly,he obtained his B.A.from Gonzaga University (Yes,Ben is true Zagnaut and follows the Zag basketball team religiously),then went on to St.Louis University where he received his law degree in 1974 and was admitted to the Idaho bar the same year. He joined Cenarrusa’s staff in 1974 and quickly rose to the position of chief deputy and heir apparent.Thus,by the end of 2014, he will have spent almost 40 years serving the people of Idaho.No one could blame him for retiring to enjoy his “golden years”with wife Penny,their three children and their grandchildren. Idaho Republicans,of course,want him to run again because he’s a sure winner and he helps the GOP to keep control of Idaho’s important Land Board.Additionally,there is no obvious heir apparent inside the office like Ysursa was inside Cenarrusa’s office. If Ysursa does retire,the smartest move Idaho’s Democrats could make would be to recruit the best known Basque in their ranks — Boise Mayor Dave Bieter. The popular Boise mayor has generated speculation he might be seeing a future governor when he looks in the mirror during his morning shave.Thus,his name is prominent when folks play the parlor game of who could the Democrats run for governor in 2014 and who could beat Governor C.L.“Butch” Otter,or whomever emerges from the GOP’s closed primary. Bieter is reportedly leaning toward seeking another term as mayor.His wife is also supposed to be opposed to his seeking the governorship,and there are some Democrats who seriously question whether the mayor has the fire in his belly to run for governor. A clear indication that he’s looking more toward running for mayor again was his attempt earlier this year to woo talented Coeur d’Alene City Councilman Mike Kennedy away from north Idaho to come to Boise and be his chief of staff. Kennedy was reportedly intrigued by the offer but decided his family obligations and his commitment to business partner,Coeur d’Alene investor and real estate magnate,Steve Meyer,dictated he remain in the north. Kennedy is a veteran of several Democratic statewide campaigns, and would be an invaluable asset in any statewide race Bieter might make.One suspects that Kennedy,like Bieter and other political pundits,questions whether Bieter could win a race for governor. In fact,Kennedy announced this past week he was bowing out of politics for awhile and would neither run for a third-term as a city councilman nor seek the mayorship of Coeur d’Alene. If Ysursa chooses to retire,Bieter could win that post,especially if he is the only Basque seeking the position.Even if the GOP finds a qualified Basque candidate within its ranks,one still has to bet on Bieter.
Liz Cheney Takes on Father’s Harshest Mantle in Senate Race iz Cheney is running against a longtime Republican who combines one of Congress’s most rightwing voting records with a civility that engenders good relations with political opposites. Or,as the Almanac of American Politics put it,“his mildmannered demeanor masks deeply held conservative views.” No,she’s not running against her father,though that description fit Dick Cheney 1,a major Washington power player in the 1970s and ‘80s. Instead,the 46-year-old daughter of the former vice president initiated a primary challenge last week against the three-term Republican senator from Wyoming, Mike Enzi.He is decidedly a conservative — compiling one of the 10 most conservative voting records in the
Albert R. Hunt Bloomberg News
Senate — but one whose style enables him to selectively work with Democrats. She’s running as a hardright,take-no-prisoners, movement conservative,or as the heir to Cheney 2,her father’s years as vice president and after.The context here is a tale of the two Cheneys. Unlike the 69-year-old Enzi,the earlier Dick Cheney was creative and influential. For those who don’t remember or didn’t know,he was a much different politician from the one he later became. As chief of staff to President Gerald Ford,he worked with Democrats and,during the 1976 campaign,was a key connection to the talented
Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau
moderate Republican team that staved off the conservative challenger,Ronald Reagan. He compiled an overwhelmingly conservative voting record as a six-term House member from Wyoming.Yet he was good friends with Democrats such as Tom Foley,later speaker of the House; there may not have been a more respected member on both sides of the aisle back then.(The liberal columnist Mark Shields and I once took him to a college basketball game.) As George H.W.Bush’s defense secretary,he worked closely and collaboratively with Colin Powell and Brent Scowcroft.Both said they barely recognized their old colleague during his years in the George W.Bush administration. As vice president,he became the darling of the right,
chiefly on national security issues — a leading proponent of the Iraq War and enhanced interrogation of terrorists — but on most domestic issues,too. (An exception is his support for gay marriage; the Cheneys’other daughter,Mary, is a lesbian and married.) For the past four years there have been few harsher critics of Barack Obama than the former vice president.He accused this president of wanting to “reduce U.S.influence in the world”and “take us down a peg.” Obama,he charged,has “failed to be forthright and honest.” He even found grounds for criticism after Osama bin Laden was killed,assailing the president as trying to take “sole credit”for a success that eluded the Bush-Cheney administration for 88 months. It’s the Cheney 2 mantle that his daughter is grabbing in one of the more brazen po-
litical moves in memory. It’s not novel for politicians to venue-shop.Robert F. Kennedy in 1964 and Hillary Clinton in 2000 both moved to New York to achieve political ambitions.But neither was running against an incumbent of their own party, and both had a much greater record of achievement than Liz Cheney. In contrast to Enzi — a Wyoming small businessman,two- term mayor of Gillette,member of the State House and State Senate before winning a U.S.Senate seat — Liz Cheney was born in Wisconsin,went to high school in Virginia,attended college in Colorado,law school in Illinois and has worked most of her adult life in Washington.Last year,she bought a house in Jackson Hole,in the only Wyoming county that voted for Obama in 2012.
Mallard Fillmore by Bruce Tinsley
The early take in Wyoming,where the first poll gives the incumbent a huge lead,is that the only way she can win is to turn this into a rough,bitter fight, hoping to drive Enzi out. Kerry Drake,a popular Wyoming blogger,envisioned a Cheney TV ad that showed Enzi talking to Ted Kennedy,shaking hands with Obama,sponsoring legislation that raises taxes on online purchases,and that concludes with a call to send a real conservative to Washington; her approving father would be standing next to her. Drake theorizes that while, at 46,she could have waited, her 72-year-old father,with a history of serious heart ailments,could not.“If the political baton is to be passed,” he wrote,speculating on the patriarch’s views,“it needs to happen soon.”

BROWN BUTTE FIRE
Investigators Believe 7,300-acre Brown Butte Fire Human Caused
Work Starts Today at Eastland Drive North and Filer Avenue East
SHOSHONE • Despite a tough fight against the wind and heat, firefighters contained the nearly 7,300 acre fire just a mile out of Richfield on Monday. The wildfire is expected to be controlled today around 6 p.m., said Josh Olsen, spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. Flames first erupted on Sunday, July 21. The fire quickly grew from 300 to 7,000 acres Sunday afternoon because of the wind, but multiple air tankers and helicopters and on-the-ground fire crews helped contain the fire from spreading, Olsen said. BLM fire crews, Richfield Rural Fire District and Shoshone Rural Fire District responded to the fire. The fire did not threaten

Buhl Man Man Pulled from Dierkes Lake Sentenced Dies, Other Idahoans Drown Too for Child Sex Abuse TIMES-NEWS
TWIN FALLS • A 42-year-
BY ALISON GENE SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org
TWIN FALLS • A Buhl man was sentenced to two to 10 years in prison for sexually abusing an infant. Miguel Angel MedinaMariscal, 37, was accused of masturbating and watching pornography in the baby’s presence. He was arrested and held on a $1 million bond after Twin Falls County deputies responded to a home south of Buhl. Deputies discovered he had two warrants out for his arrest from California, one on a lewd conduct charge and one concerning possession of a controlled substance. A woman told police the baby was lying on the bed, and MedinaMariscal was masturbating nearby while pornography played on a television in the room, according to a police report. Medina-Mariscal always maintained that he didn’t touch the baby,defense attorney Ben Andersen said. Testing showed that semen found on the baby’s clothes was not MedinaMariscal’s,Andersen said. County Prosecutor Grant Loebs said that although more DNA was found, prosecutors don’t believe it was tied to further abuse of the baby. “It doesn’t indicate a crime happened,” Loebs said.
old man died late Sunday night after being pulled from the swimming area of Dierkes Lake hours earlier. Friends of Chen PeirHorng said he went underwater about 4:30 p.m. and did not come back up. Practicing in the lake were members of the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Dive Team, who responded quickly, pulling Peir-Horng from the water within two minutes and administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation, says a Sheriff’s Office press release. Peir-Horng was trans-
ported to St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center, where he died several hours later. Also last weekend, a 23year-old man drowned while boogie boarding in the Boise River, Ada County officials reported. Taylor Wood died of accidental drowning, the coroner determined. Witnesses say Wood had been boogie boarding Saturday afternoon, using a rope tied to a tree. They said the last time they saw him, he was pulling himself to shore with the rope. They walked away and when they returned after a short time, Wood was under water.
A North Idaho man appears to have drowned after jumping from a bridge in Sandpoint, the Bonner County Daily Bee reported. Patrick R. Orton, 25, was crossing the Bridge Street Bridge with another person about 2 a.m. Saturday when Orton decided to jump from the bridge’s north side, Police Chief Corey Coon said. Orton was pulled from the water in Sand Creek and pronounced dead at Kootenai Medical Center. The Kootenai County coroner’s office and Sandpoint police are investigating Orton’s death.

Twin Falls Man Gets Probation for Hookah Bar Stabbing BY ALISON GENE SMITH email@example.com
TWIN FALLS • A Twin Falls man was sentenced Monday to two years of probation for stabbing another man outside a hookah bar in December. Cody Armstrong, 21, was charged with aggravated battery in the Dec.27 stabbing in the 100 block of Main Avenue North. If he fails to successfully complete probation, Armstrong could face four to eight years in prison. Armstrong entered an Alford plea May 6, meaning he
admits prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him, but he doesn’t admit to all the elements of the charges. Part of Armstrong’s plea deal was that he get substance abuse and anger management evaluations, and he’s made progress on those, said Rosemary Emory, deputy prosecutor for Twin Falls County. Prosecutors asked for more than $10,000 in restitution, most of which is medical bills for the victim. “The victim was significantly injured and not able to perform normal life functions
for some time,” Emory said. Prosecutors also asked that Armstrong pay a $1,000 civil penalty to the victim right away. Armstrong said he had the money and would pay that penalty Monday after court. Armstrong has stayed out of trouble since the stabbing, said defense attorney George Essma. “He’s been nothing but a respectful polite young man every time I’ve had an encounter with him,” Essma said. As part of Armstrong’s sentence, County District Judge Randy Stoker ordered that he not carry any knives.

T.F. Temporarily Closes Wood Waste Recycling Facility TIMES-NEWS
TWIN FALLS • Increased use of the city’s wood waste recycling facility has led to a temporary closure until workers can process through the backlog of debris. Twin Falls officials are asking citizens not to dispose of waste at or around the site until Southern Idaho Solid Waste (SISW) reopens the center. Instead, citizens can drop off waste at a local transfer station at 2186 Orchard Drive E. SISW will begin processing the extra waste around early August. The facility is expected to reopen the second week

Currently, he leads a large group of employees, overseeing the patrol deputies and he takes pride in helping them identify their goals and find joy in their jobs. Mencl said honesty is “cut and dried” and if a person is dishonest, they should not be working in law enforcement. Mencl wants to restore morale at the sheriff’s office by allowing everyone to “have a voice.” “I believe in destinations. You have to know where you are going,” Mencl said.

Dan Kindig Kindig, 49, is a Minidoka County native. “I’ve dedicated 25 years of my life to the sheriff’s office,” Kindig said. “I’ve put everything into this and I want to see it succeed.” Kindig has worked in every division at the office, including as a deputy, in civil service, as a detective, and in dispatch and records. Kindig’s goals for the department include investigating crimes more quickly and streamlining the process of returning property to victims. “There are wounds in the office caused by the top administration; I understand where those wounds are,” Kindig said. Kindig said when the leadership in the office failed; the rest of the employees stepped up.

SISW contracts with the city to reduce landfill materials by converting yard and wood waste for alternative uses. Chipped wood is available to anyone on a first-come, first-serve basis.

He served in the U.S. Navy and went to the University of Idaho where he earned a law enforcement degree.He started out as an officer in Blackfoot and Aberdeen and worked for the Rupert police,where he was named interim chief. “It’s been a goal of mine to become sheriff. I have served the citizens honorably and will continue to do so,” Snarr said. Snarr said he would work to bring up the department’s morale with new uniforms, patches and vehicle decals. Snarr described himself as a hard worker, self-motivated and detail oriented. His worst trait is perfectionism, he said. “I think I could be a huge asset to the county,” he said.

Boise State head coach Chris Petersen conducts an interview during the Mountain West Conference football media days on Monday at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
Petersen ‘Worried’ about NCAA’s New Targeting Rule BY RYAN HOWE email@example.com
LAS VEGAS • A new rule in college football will call for an ejection of a player whose hit has been deemed illegal by officials. Leading with the crown of the helmet, launching oneself, shots to the helmet and targeting a defensive player were already illegal and earned a 15-yard penalty. The change, starting this fall, is in the punishment: immediate ejection from the game; if the penalty occurs in the second half, the player must sit out the first half of the next game. At the 2013 Mountain West Conference media day on Monday at The Cosmopolitan, coaches met with Big 12 Conference officials coordinator Walt Anderson.
“I’m worried. There are going to be a lot of guys that are going to be out of the game,” said Boise State head coach Chris Petersen. “We’re all all about safety, we really are. So hopefully we do a good job with teaching our kids that the game has changed as far as tackling and the shots you can take.” Taking a proactive approach to new rules implemented by the NCAA for this upcoming season, Boise State’s defensive coaches met with a local rugby team to learn safer forms of tackling. The exercise could prove crucial to the Broncos’ success, as college football officials will crack down harder on devastating hits. “There is going to be a learning curve. Some will have to learn the hard way, but hopefully most players can learn the easy way,”
More Key Rule Changes When a player’s helmet comes off, he must sit out one play. But there’s a new wrinkle to the rule: A team can buy a player back in by using a timeout. … In the final minute of each half, if the clock is stopped because of injury, the opponent has the option of a 10-second runoff. If a player is injured with the clock running under 10 seconds, the half or game can end. … There must be at least three seconds on the clock in order to spike the ball and run another play. Anderson said. The “hard way” to learn the rule is more severe than in the past.
Referees will be on the lookout for key elements in a tackle, including a player intentionally launching himself, lowering his head, leading with the crown of his helmet, and targeting a defenseless player. “Some of the clips that they were showing us, we were all looking at them like, ‘Really? That’s going to eject a guy?’ It’s very concerning,” said Petersen, adding that differentiating between borderline-illegal hits can be “like splitting hairs.” These aren’t new rules – what has changed is the enforcement. “Football is a contact sport, and it will remain so,” Anderson said. “The balance that has to be struck is the ongoing tension between how to make the game as safe as possible for players, but at the same time realizing you have a
game where there is going to be contact… to the head.” The ejection is subject to review via instant replay and can be overturned; however, the 15-yard penalty cannot be overturned. Anderson said the NCAA and rules committee are determined to enforce this rule aggressively, and that’s why they added the disqualification of the player who commits an act of targeting. “Some changes needed to be made; more teeth needed to be put into the penalty,” Anderson said. New blocking rules will also be in place, most notably the penalization of “peel back” blocks, when a player turns back toward his own goal line to make a block. This is intended to eliminate blindside hits.

It was only their 17th win in 50 road games. San Diego starter Andrew Cashner (6-5) pitched six solid innings and keyed the sixth-inning rally with a leadoff bunt single.

Seattle Manager Taken to Hospital as Precaution SEATTLE • Mariners manager Eric Wedge suffered a dizzy spell during batting practice, had to be helped into the dugout by team personnel and was taken to a hospital as a precaution before Monday night’s game against the Cleveland Indians. Wedge was helped off the field about halfway through the Mariners hitting session and into the Seattle clubhouse, general manager Jack Zduriencik said. Wedge was examined by team physicians Dr. Mitch Storey and Dr. Edward Khalfayan, and the team training staff. Wedge was feeling better after being checked out in the clubhouse, but the team still decided to have him examined at a hospital. Zduriencik said Wedge had not expressed feeling ill earlier in the day. Bench coach Robby Thompson will handle the managerial duties for the series opener against the Indians. Seattle currently has the longest winning streak in baseball having won six straight games. “Everything looks good, real good. What we’re doing is going to be very cautious about this and he’s going to get checked tonight. We’re going to run him up to a hospital just to make sure we cover all of our bases,” Zduriencik said. “He’s talking well. He’s fine. Everything seems to be normal. Robby will take over tonight. We’ll expect Eric back here tomorrow.” TIGERS 7, WHITE SOX 3

Braun Suspended for Rest of Season
following the 2011 season,but an arbitrator overturned the penalty because the Milwaukee starâ€™s urine sample was not handled as specified by baseballâ€™s drug agreement.
NEW YORK â€˘ Former National League MVP Ryan Braun was suspended without pay for the rest of the season and the postseason Monday in the first penalty following Major League Baseballâ€™s investigation of the Florida clinic accused of distributing performanceenhancing drugs.

MLB attempted to suspend Braun for a positive drug test
Broncosâ€™ Von Miller Says He Did Nothing Wrong ENGLEWOOD, Colo. â€˘ The latest distraction for the Denver Broncos comes from All-Pro linebacker Von Miller, who insisted Monday he did nothing wrong in the face of reports he could miss four games for violating the NFLâ€™s drug policy. â€œI know I did nothing wrong. Iâ€™m sure thisâ€™ll be re-
solved fairly,â€? Miller tweeted, acknowledging he had seen the reports and adding he was disappointed the Broncos have to open training camp with this news hanging over them. ESPN first reported the pending discipline for Miller. A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the possible penalty to The Associated Press. The person did not want to be named because the league hasnâ€™t announced any punishment.
