The little bus wound its way over green mountains, alongside undeveloped stretches of the meandering Susquehanna River and through some of Pennsylvania’s most pristine wilderness. But the man inside with the microphone, the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition’s Scott Cannon, said there’s trouble in paradise as he pointed out the changes Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling has brought to Pennsylvania’s Northern Tier. Here was a drilling rig, there a water withdrawal site and every so often yet another pipeline was laid out in preparation for burial. The sights were part of the coalition’s “Marcellus Shale Reality Tour,” held Sunday for area legislators, municipal representatives and candidates for political office.

WYOMING – Mayor Bob Boyer terms the idea floated by Wal-Mart Stores Inc. of eliminating parking spaces in this historic borough’s business district so the big-box retailer can move ahead with plans to open a store in neighboring Exeter “ludicrous.” Boyer said borough council in Wyoming has not been asked to take any official action on the proposal, but he said he doubts members would support it and he’d recommend they flatly reject it if it were officially requested. “We’re not trying to create a problem,” Boyer said. “We’re just trying to be fair” to the 20 busi-

‘Good time’ concert Motley Crue, Poison and New York Dolls bring their rockin’ hits to the Montage stage. R E V I E W By BRAD PATTON Times Leader Correspondent

SCRANTON -- If you were to name two bands back in the 1980s that would still be playing together in 2011, Motley Crue and Poison would probably have been near the bottom of your list. On Sunday night at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain, the two bands – one celebrating its 30th anniversary, the other celebrating its 25th – showed everyone they still have a lot of life left in them yet. Poison, the quartet originally from Pennsylvania, revved up the crowd first with a 55-minute set full of hits, opening with “Look What The Cat Dragged In,” the title track of its 1986 debut album, followed quickly by “Ride The Wind.” Poison, fronted by rocker turned reality TV staple Bret Michaels, then played a hardrocking cover of Grand Funk Railroad’s “We’re An American Band” followed by Loggins & Messina’s “Your Mama Don’t Dance,” which the band first recorded back in 1988. After a blazing guitar solo by C.C. Deville and a drum solo by Rikki Rockett, the band played crowd-pleasing versions of “Fallen Angel” and “Unskinny Bop” before finishing up with the powerful trio of “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “Talk Dirty To Me” and “Nothin’ But a Good Time.” Then with an ear-shattering display of fireworks, Motley Crue took the stage a little bit

before 9:30 with “Wild Side,” followed by “Saints of Los Angeles.” Celebrating its 30th year together, the band, consisting of singer Vince Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, then treated the crowd to some songs it hasn’t played on stage in more than 20 years, including “Live Wire” from its 1981 debut album “Too Fast For Love” and “Primal Scream” from its 1991 compilation album “Decade of Decadence.” The stage didn’t seem quite as elaborate as in years past – probably because Lee’s roller coaster drum set took up most of the room – but there were still plenty of lights and pyrotechnics to satisfy even the most diehard Crue fan. Other early highlights of Motley Crue’s set included “Shout at the Devil” and “Same Ol’ Situation (S.O.S.).” Lee then took center stage to play the familiar opening to “Home

Sweet Home” on the piano, before running back to his drum kit to blast the power ballad into orbit. The New York Dolls, in many ways the spiritual fathers of Motley Crue, Poison and other bands of their ilk, opened Sunday’s show with a fast and furious 40-minute set. Still featuring original members David Johansen on lead vocals and Sylvain Sylvain on guitar and touring in support of its most recent album, “Dancing Backward in High Heels,” the reunited band from the early 1970s scored big with opener “Looking For a Kiss,” a spirited cover of Bo Diddley’s “Pills” and closers “Trash” and “Personality Crisis.” Only five more stops on the Motley Crue, Poison and New York Dolls tour, including Tuesday in Columbus, Ohio. The next concert at the Toyota Pavilion is Bob Dylan with fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Leon Russell on Aug. 10.

High takeout rates issue at Pa. horse tracks is debated The takeout rate is the percentage of a betting pool that a racetrack keeps. The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Although Pennsylvania’s horse racing industry is among the healthiest in the nation thanks to slot machine revenue, a group says the high percentage going to tracks and owners is keeping some out of the action. Figures compiled in July by the Horseplayers Association of North America indicate that tracks in the commonwealth continue to have some of the highest takeout rates in the business, which is the percentage of a betting pool that a racetrack keeps to defray costs such as race purses, operational costs and taxes as well as to benefit owners.

“The player who is betting $25,000 a year at the (off-track betting parlor), a lot of them are avoiding Pennsylvania tracks like the plague,” association executive Dean Towers told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Trifecta and superfecta takeouts at Penn National outside Harrisburg are the highest among 67 North American thoroughbred tracks at 31 and 30 percent, and Parx Racing (formerly Philadelphia Park) is right behind with a 30 percent takeout on both bets, the paper said. The Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Washington County has a 35 percent takeout on trifecta bets, the maximum allowed by state law — and, according to the association, the highest takeout of any bet at any track in the nation, harness or thoroughbred. “I’m really depressed about

this,” said longtime Meadows bettor Bob Zanakis, 56, of Canonsburg. “They are making more money on slots, (so) they should lower the (takeout).” Pennsylvania Director of Racing Daniel Tufano calls the takeout rates the cost of doing business at the state’s six tracks: Penn National, Parx Racing and Presque Isle in Erie for thoroughbred racing and

HARRISBURG – One player matched all five winning numbers drawn in Sunday’s “Pennsylvania Cash 5” game winning $225,000. Lottery officials said 102 players matched four numbers and won $145.50 each; 2,928 players matched three numbers and won $8.50 each; and 31,793 players matched two numbers and won $1 each. • None of the tickets sold for the Powerball game Saturday matched all six numbers drawn, which were: 20-40-41-47-55 Powerball: 19 Power Play: 2 Players matching all five numbers and the Powerball would have won or shared the $133 million jackpot. The prize goes to an estimated $160 million for Wednesday. Tickets that match the first five numbers, but miss the Powerball, win $200,000 each and there were four of those: they were sold in: Arkansas(1), Kentucky(1), Massachusetts (1) and North Carolina(1). There were no Power Play Match 5 winners.

the Meadows, Pocono Downs and Harrah’s in Chester for harness racing. Each track submits takeout rates to the state racing commission, which can approve or deny them. Tufano said rates have stayed fairly consistent, although the Meadows raised its trifecta takeout from 29 to 35 percent two years ago. Takeout rates across the country typically vary from 15 to 25 percent, and in Pennsylvania the rate includes a state tax of between 1.5 and 2.5 percent. “If the takeout rates get too low, the tracks will lose money on those wagers,” Meadows president Mike Jeannot said. “We’ve lowered them and watched what happens, and there’s never been any evidence that lowering the takeout increases the (betting) handle.” The industry has flourished with the Pennsylvania Race Horse

Development Fund, which benefits from10 percent of slot machine revenue in the commonwealth — a total of $200.6 million last year. The Pennsylvania Racing Equine Industry released a study in June concluding that 8,760 jobs have been created by the industry with a total economic impact of more than $875 million from 2006 through 2009. The average purse per race in Pennsylvania thoroughbred ($25,100) and harness ($15,300) racing is ranked seventh and third in the nation, and the handle — the total amount bet from all outlets, in-state, out-of-state and call-abet — has increased in each of the past five years. Industry analysts say most bettors, especially casual ones, aren’t deterred by takeout rates, since a trip to the track or off-track facility is more about entertainment.

LOCAL County veterans to get F.A.V.O.R.

ID cards will attest to certified records verifying honorable discharge, may provide discounts. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

Veterans in Luzerne County will soon be offered free identification cards that may be used to verify their honorable discharge from the military and also obtain discounts at participating businesses. This “Return the F.A.V.O.R. (Find & Assist Veterans of Record)” discount program is popular in New York, but Luzerne County is believed to be the first

Identification cards veterans. are frequently requested by veterans, he said. Typically, the only veterans who have IDs are those who are disabled, military retirees, in active duty or active reserves or enrolled in the VA Healthcare System, he said. The plastic cards will attest that veterans have provided certified records verifying they were honorably discharged, Spagnola said. His office will issue the cards because

it already certifies military discharges, he said. The county Recorder of Deeds, which stores military discharge records, will provide the roughly $3,400 funding to purchase a camera, software and supplies needed to produce the cards. Spagnola said he will be requesting assistance from the county’s chambers of commerce and other organizations to encourage businesses to offer veterans discounts on goods or services. Businesses decide the discount they want to offer, from dollar amounts or percentages off purchases to other special offers, he said. A kick-off event will soon be held for

merchants who sign up to offer discounts, Spagnola said. The county will also provide a poster that businesses may display to alert veterans that they are participating in the program. Participating merchants’ names, addresses and discount details will be listed in a pamphlet and a website about the program. “It’s a good way to honor veterans for their service,” Spagnola said. “Involvement in the program will be beneficial to businesses that will undoubtedly realize increased traffic and sales.” Businesses that are interested in the program may call Spagnola at 706-3960 or county Recorder of Deeds James “Red” O’Brien at 825-1646.

Changes Honoring heritage coming to Catholic Missals Scranton Bishop Joseph Bambera decides to unveil limited changes in prayer book in area churches.

By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – On Nov. 27, Catholics across the country will see numerous language changes in the celebration of Mass when the Church unveils a new Roman Catholic Missal. But changes could hit local churches as early as September, thanks to a decision by Diocese of Scranton Bishop Joseph Bambera. The new English translation of the Missal – which literally spells out prayers said by both priests and “When I pray parishioners the Eucharistic during religious prayer, I don’t services – has been in the even look at works for nearly the book.

Thomas Banick be put into use, Pastor, Our Lady of said Msgr. Dale Fatima in Wilkes-Barre Rupert, Diocese of Scranton director of the office of worship. Some chose to unveil the new translations all at once, others are doing so more slowly. In this country, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops decided all churches will start using the new Missal on the same day, Nov. 27. That’s the first Sunday of Advent, the start of the Christmas season. But after multiple requests, the conference gave the go-ahead for each diocese to introduce limited parts of the new Missal – specifically, those that are sung -- during the next few months. Bambera has, in turn, authorized local parish priests to do so at their discretion. “It’s not mandated that you have to start singing it in September, but it’s possible,” Rupert said. The changes can be used before Nov 27 only when they are sung, he added; the current versions should be used when there is no music and the prayers are recited. “Why allow parishioners to sing the new text but not recite it?” Rupert asked rhetorically. “There is some opinion See MISSAL, Page 7A

Cops: Man tries escape

A Pittston man tried to escape from custody and smashed his head on a glass window at the hospital where he was taken for a blood test early Sunday morning after he was stopped for reckless driving on Interstate 81, state police said. Salvatore F. Dietrick, 34, was northbound on 81 in a 2003 Nissan Sentra when state police stopped him at Exit 182 around 3:35 a.m. He showed signs of intoxication and when told to get out of the car tried to discard a small amount of suspected marijuana on the ground, state police said. Dietrick failed a breath test administered at the scene, according to state Tpr. Stephen Kopenis. The trooper said he saw a glass pipe with suspected marijuana in the bowl on the front passenger seat and another glass pipe with suspected marijuana residue in the bowl on the middle console. During the traffic stop Dietrick became disorderly, according to Kopenis. The trooper said Dietrick continued to act disorderly at Moses Taylor Hospital in Scranton, where he was taken for chemical testing. Dietrick refused a blood test and tried to break free, hitting his head on a window. He was taken to the Lackawanna County Processing Center and charged with DUI, possession of a small amount of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, persistent disorderly conduct and several traffic violations. He was arraigned by District Judge John Pesota and released on $5,000 bail. WILKES-BARRE

Benner makes appeal

A former Ranshaw, Pa., man sentenced this month to 13 to 26 years in state prison on charges he forced a teenage girl to perform lewd sex acts has asked a judge to either reduce his sentence, give him a new trial or dismiss charges against him. Chad Benner, 38, was sentenced last Friday by Luzerne County Judge Joseph Van Jura after a jury found him guilty of related charges. Benner said in a court filing Friday that he should not have been sentenced consecutively on three charges, but rather concurrently, which would reduce his sentence. Benner also said, through his attorney John Donovan, that he should be acquitted because there was no sufficient evidence to sustain a conviction, or that he should be given a new trial because “the verdict was against the weight of the evidence” in that the evidence presented to jurors consisted only of the alleged victim’s uncorroborated testimony.

WILKES-BARRE – Cork Bar and Restaurant is going to the dogs. This week the popular restaurant at 463 Madison St. is holding its annual “Dog Days of Summer Fundraiser.” The event benefits the Luzerne County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and begins Tuesday with the “Tails at Twilight” cocktail party from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The SPCA will have animals available for adoption that night.

A real treat: Dining with the dogs Wilkes-Barre restaurant’s annual summer fundraiser will raise money, awareness for SPCA.

MONDAY, AUGUST 1, 2011 PAGE 3A

Ruth Corcoran, owner of Cork, adopted her Labrador mix Snickers 10 years ago. “I absolutely love that dog and that’s why I choose to support the SPCA through this event,” said Corcoran. Cork will give 20 percent of its sales during the week to the SPCA. Approximately $1,500 was given to the organization the first year and nearly $2,000 the following year, said Corcoran.

“This is the third year we are doing it,” she said. “I came up with the idea three summers ago when the SPCA told me donations were down and I wanted to do something to help.” Patrons can bring their dogs to the restaurant for dinner on the patio. The animals can dine on cooked burger patties and grilled chicken and their owners can enjoy pet-themed drink specials. In case of rain, part of the patio will be tented. A raffle runs all week with the drawing on Saturday. Corcoran put together a wine basket and another one loaded with doggie toys and treats. The previous fundraisers were big hits with the people and pets, said Corcoran. “It’s usually packed the whole week.”

City police are investigating the reported robbery of Burgit City Taxi driver Sunday at 249 S. Welles St. The driver, Charles Slavish 48, of Wilkes-Barre, told police that three males approached his cab around 2:50 a.m. Slavish said he asked where they were going and one of the would-be patrons getting into the back, a black male with a thin build, asked him for a cigarette. When Slavish handed him a cigarette, a taller white male with glasses and a beard opened the passenger-side front door. The white male began whispering to another male, described as having medium complexion and long hair pulled back, standing outside the cab. The white male then turned to Slavish and demanded money. Slavish complied and the three men fled. Police were not able to locate anyone in the area matching the descriptions. No weapon was used in the robbery, police said. SCRANTON

Tornado caused damage

Weather authorities say there is evidence that a tornado touched down in Honesdale Friday evening. A National Weather Service meteorologist said that a survey of damage turned up signs of a tornado in Honesdale, and at least one eyewitness saw a funnel cloud there. The meteorologist said high winds that caused damage in Lackawanna and Susquehanna counties were from microbursts. PPL says the storms left about 10,000 customers without power in the region.

put a frack water treatment facility in Hanover Township – that was an hour away from the nearest drill site,” Cannon said. About 15 people attended the tour, including candidate for U.S. representative Bill Vinsko, Wilkes-Barre Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin and Luzerne County Council candidates Kathleen Dobash, Salvatore Licata, Eileen Sorokas and Michelle Bednar. Group has grown The trip was a milestone for the coalition, which was founded in January 2010. Member Paula Chaiken said the group had only nine members when she joined in March of that year. Its membership has since swelled to 250 and the group has gained prominence by rallying around issues such as the attempts of Chief Gathering LLC to install a metering station near the Dallas school campus and the proposed expansion of the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority to treat drilling wastewater. Some participants said they went on the tour to hear the coalition’s side of the gas-drilling debate and to see for themselves the change gas drilling has brought to the region, but they did not bring preconceived opinions about the issue with them. “It’s all about information,” Sorokas said. “You can’t beat going firsthand and seeing it. I’ve heard so many things about it; I want to clarify it in my mind.” “It’s important to learn about all sides of this important issue,” said Vinsko, a Democrat who plans to a 2012 challenge to Republican Lou Barletta in Pennsylvania’s 11th Congressional District. “In order to make informed decisions, I wanted to hear from the landowners on both sides of the issue. I also plan to meet with the gas companies to get all sides of the story, but this is an important first step.” At least one trip participant

had already made up his mind about the issue. Throop Borough Council President Tommy Lukasewicz said he has been fighting against the efforts of Keystone Sanitary Landfill to increase its daily intake by 2,500 tons, which would allow it to accept more solid waste from the gas drilling industry. “I agree more than anyone here probably that this is the worst thing that could happen to Northeastern Pennsylvania,” he said, adding that he believes gas drilling could reverse the progress the area has made in erasing the scars left 50 years ago by coal mining. Lukasewicz, who attended Mansfield University and often drove through Bradford County to get there, said he “wanted to see firsthand what an area (he)

had known about looks like now.” Contrary views on drilling And, though he wasn’t invited, the trip brought out one detractor. Fred Murray of Jackson Township met the bus at the Dallas Shopping Center. “I’m not protesting,” he said. “I hope they go up and never come back.” Murray said he supports the potential for economic growth offered by drilling in the Marcellus Shale. “I’ve been to 18 meetings and all I’ve seen is negative, negative, negative,” he said.

“We live in a county that has 2,100 homes in foreclosure; there’s 700 children in foster homes and right now there’s 300 people eating lunch at the soup kitchen.” Leaving Murray behind, the bus set off shortly before 10:30 a.m. Tracing a path along the Susquehanna north through Tunkhannock, Wyalusing and Towanda, it visited sites exemplifying the industrial mechanisms of gas drilling, including a well being drilled, a completed well with a compressor station and a freshly cut pipeline easement. The riders also met with residents who discussed how drilling on their land or nearby has affected their lives and livelihoods. Dave Buck, owner of Endless Mountains Outfitters in Sugar Run, said increased truck traffic on area roads and the appearance of methane bubbles in the river nearby has deterred former customers from returning to his business, which offers camping and guided kayak tours. “It raises my stress level to a point where I don’t want to be here any more,” Buck said. Sherry Vargson gave the group

a tour of her farm in Granville Township, where Chesapeake Energy has drilled one well and installed compressor and metering stations and a gathering pipeline. She said her water became contaminated with methane after maintenance activities at the site in June 2010, and lit water from her tap alight for a trip attendees and the media. The coalition’s guests said the tour provided a great close-up look at the gas industry. “I’m glad I came,” Vinsko said. “I feel more informed than when I started and in order to be able to effect policy, which I hope to do,

you have to go out and meet people to see all sides of the issue.” “I think the trip served its purpose,” McLaughlin said. “On a day like today, you get beyond the newspapers and the academic papers and see firsthand what’s going on.” Cannon said the coalition has applied to incorporate itself as a nonprofit, allowing it to collect donations to fund ventures like Sunday’s trip. In the future, it plans to continue promoting its message with billboards and radio and television advertisements, Cannon said.

ty will likely be eclipsed by more unrest. Food prices — part of the economic hardships that catalyzed the ouster of the Egyptian and Tunisian leaders — are still climbing. And protesters have shown little patience for conciliatory gestures by governments after decades of empty promises. With momentum strong to drive out authoritarian regimes, there is no sign that opposition forces will ease up on protests — even with the difficulties of

hafi. Syrian security forces escalated their crackdown on protesters the day before Ramadan on Sunday, killing more than 70 people. And the violence in Syria is only expected to intensify throughout the holy month. In Egypt, Cairo’s Tahrir Square is once again a tent encampment and the joyous celebrations that accompanied Hosni Mubarak’s fall on Feb. 11 have given way to anger and impatience over the slow

pace of change. In response to the pressure from a new round of protests, the judiciary is promising to put Mubarak, his security chief and his two sons on trial this week for a range of charges from corruption to ordering the killing of protesters during the uprising. The hearings are to be carried live on state television, broadcasts that could easily outshine the Ramadan television serials that Egyptians love to watch during the month. Ramadan falls this year during the scorching summer, when tempers already running hot could easily boil over, especially as Egyptians complain about the continued rise in food prices and the general economic malaise after the uprising. Food prices typically spike during Ramadan, and the extravagant dinners many put on to break the daily fast drive a deep hole in household budgets. “Before the revolution, Egyptians were like kindling waiting for a match,” said Mahmoud El-Askalany with the

consumer group Citizens Against the High Cost of Living. He was talking about the sense of frustration over soaring prices of food and consumer goods, as well as the gross income inequality and nepotism that prevailed before the Arab uprisings. “If anyone thinks that this has changed, they’d be wrong,” El-Askalany said. “The same rage we saw then can surface again, and worse.” Still, Egyptians have not lost their sense of humor. In the annual tradition of naming dates after celebrities, they have dubbed the cheapest, least desirable variety of the fruit “Hosni Mubarak” this year. “They’re the lousiest of them all,” said date vendor Sherif Ramadan, flicking one of the shriveled brown pellets back into a burlap sack with the others. Even though they sell for 40 cents per kilogram (2.2 pounds), and dates are a traditional food for Ramadan, “there’s no demand for them,” he says.

say they heard sputtering W itnesses and a pop before a new model of a Wright Brothers biplane crashed in rural western Ohio, killing the two volunteer pilots. The Dayton Daily News reported one man living nearby said the plane was sputtering late Saturday morning. Another heard the engine backfire and then a pop. The plane went down during flight testing in an area of cornfields about three miles from Springfield Beckley Municipal Airport, where it had taken off earlier. The 73-year-old and 64-year-old pilots who died were experienced in flying the biplane. It was built by a company that uses them to promote nearby Dayton as the birthplace of aviation. A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman told the Daily News a finding on what caused the crash could take eight months.

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN

Plan sought for U.S. exit The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan has been ordered to submit a plan by mid-October for the initial withdrawal of American troops, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Sunday. That plan may hinge in part on whether the latest surge in attacks continues through the holy month of Ramadan. Commanders are hearing that Taliban leaders might leave their fighters in the country to try to regain lost ground during the Islamic holy period which begins today, rather than crossing the border to Pakistan, said Adm. Mike Mullen, the Joint Chiefs chairman. Mullen, who visited U.S. outposts along Afghanistan’s eastern border on Sunday, also said U.S. troops are making progress in their renewed campaign against Haqqani network insurgents in havens in Pakistan. And he issued another warning that Islamabad must step up its efforts to root out those militants. CLEVELAND

Defense tries to spare life Defense attorneys are trying to spare the life of an ex-Marine convicted of killing 11 women by painting him as someone who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental illnesses. The sentencing phase of trial begins on Monday for Anthony Sowell, a sex offender who was found guilty July 22 of murdering the women and abusing their corpses, which were hidden in his home and buried in his backyard. The jury, which sat through weeks of disturbing and emotional testimony, saw photographs of the victims’ blackened, skeletal corpses lying on autopsy tables and listened to police describe how their bodies had been left to rot in a home that smelled so bad neighbors complained.

4 shot after Clinton show A man fired several shots from a handgun during a large fight near an outdoor concert venue featuring funk music artist George Clinton, killing one person and wounding three others, police said Sunday. The fight erupted before 10 p.m. Saturday at an intersection near Luke Easter Park, the venue for the eighth annual Unity in the Park festival. Police didn’t have a description of the shooter, and no arrests had been made by midmorning Sunday, Sgt. Sammy Morris told The Associated Press.

Blinded Iranian pardons her attacker

TEHRAN, Iran — An Iranian woman blinded and disfigured by a man who threw acid into her face stood above her attacker Sunday in a hospital operating room as a doctor was about to put several drops of acid in one of his eyes in court-ordered retribution. The man waited on his knees and wept. “What do you want to do now?” the doctor asked the 34-year-old woman, whose own face was severely disfigured in the 2004 attack. “I forgave him, I forgave him,” she responded, asking the doctor to spare him at the last minute in a dramatic scene broadcast on Iran’s state televi-

sion. Ameneh Bahrami lost her sight and suffered horrific burns to her face, scalp and body in the attack, carried out by a man who was angered that she refused his marriage proposal. Bahrami, whose face remains visibly burned, was a glimpse of her former self, wearing a touch of pink gloss on her lips and a loosely wrapped headscarf to the hospital where the sentence was to be carried out. She was helped into the building by two women who held both her hands. “It is best to pardon when you are in a position of power,” Bahrami said, explaining that she did not want revenge. The sobbing man, Majid Movahedi, said Bahrami was “very generous.” “I couldn’t imagine being blinded by acid,” Movahedi said, as he wept against a wall. It is a legal right for victims in Iran to ask for a strict enforcement of Islamic law, under which an attempt is made to

reach a settlement with victims or their families. If no agreement is reached, then “qisas,” or eye-for-an-eye retribution, is enforced. Under the Iranian judiciary’s policy of qisas, convicted murderers are sentenced to death. In another example of a case where qisas was carried out, authorities amputated the hand of a convicted thief in front of other prisoners in October 2010. In the trial of Bahrami’s attacker, the court ruling allowed the woman to have a doctor pour a few drops of the corrosive chemical in one of Movahedi’s eyes as retribution. A few months after the November 2008 ruling, Bahrami told a radio station in Spain, where she traveled for treatment of her wounds, that she was happy with the sentence. “I am not doing this out of revenge, but rather so that the suffering I went through is not repeated,” she said in that March 2009 interview.

Somali women hit by famine are target of rapists The Kenyan government is refusing to open the new Ifo 2 facility as part of the world’s biggest refugee camp. By KATHARINE HOURELD Associated Press

DADAAB, Kenya — Refugee Barwago Mohamud huddles silently beneath a few blankets stretched over sticks at night, fearing for her life after a neighbor was raped, and a naked woman who had been kidnapped and gang-raped for three days in front of her terrified children was delivered to the medical tent next door. Only a few hundred feet away stands a newly built camp with a police station, toilet blocks and schools. Neat thornbush fences in the camp separate residential areas for families to move into. But all the facilities are empty. The Kenyan government is refusing to open the new Ifo 2 facility as part of the world’s biggest refugee camp, Dadaab, saying the desperate Somali refugees flowing into the country are a security risk. But for the women and children who fled war and famine and are now forced to build their shelters farther and far-

ther away from the center of the camps, the extension would be a refuge from the armed men who prowl the bush at night. Some may be deserters from So-

mali forces across the border; others are Kenyan bandits who rob and gang-rape the stream of refugees fleeing the famine in Somalia. The contrast between the squalid, insecure outskirts of the sprawling camp and the empty, silent facilities shows how regional politics can interfere with aid efforts, causing millions of dollars to be wasted and leaving women and children vulnerable to attack. “What can we do?” Mohamud asked. “Our neighbors have been raped at night. We are afraid. Some boys are helping watch at night in case of trouble but they also work during the day.” Mohamud and eight other women and girls share their rickety shelter on the outskirts of Dadaab, a camp designed for 90,000 people which now houses around 440,000 refugees. Almost all are from war-ravaged Somalia. Some have been here for more than 20 years, when the country first collapsed into anarchy. But now more than 1,000 are arriving daily, fleeing fighting or hunger. The U.N. said this month that at least two regions in Somalia are suffering from famine and 11.3 million people in the Horn of Africa need aid.

MULHALL, Okla. — The air is cool inside Ray Knight’s makeshift coffee shop on the main strip in this tiny northern Oklahoma farming community, but there aren’t many customers. With temperatures topping 100 degrees, the elderly farmers and retirees who Knight says like to gather and “swap lies” are nowhere to be seen. They’re also probably not at their doctor’s appointments, shopping at “I can’t the store or at their club hardly do meetings. nothing Many are afraid to go when it’s outside. this hot.” The heat Bryce Butler wave scorchAn 86-year-old ing the Great World War II Plains has veteran turned many rural communities into virtual ghost towns for the last month, and also heightened a sense of isolation among the elderly residents who make up much of their population these days. The relentless stretch of 100-degree days, which began unusually early this year and could run for weeks longer, is making their way of life difficult and even dangerous, thwarting their routines for getting the supplies and health care they need. “I can’t hardly do nothing when it’s this hot,” said Bryce Butler, an 86-year-old World War II veteran who stays in his house every day in this town of 200 people. He usually drives to the county seat in Guthrie, about 15 miles away, for errands but now can’t go out after noon. “I’m afraid if I had car trouble, I’d have a heat stroke,” said Mary Hasley, 79, who lives in nearby Cashion. She has cancelled her doctor’s appointments. “It’s just too dangerous.” It’s been over 100 for more than 30 days in a row in many parts of Oklahoma. In the town of Altus, the average high in June — when the weather is normally mild — was 105. In the many dozens of rural communities like Mulhall, where there are no longer any stores or other services, the elderly must drive other places for almost everything, and that has become daunting this summer. In remote towns, the elderly residents try to look out for each other. But it isn’t easy when those who live out in the country are afraid to drive to town. Many live alone.

Tie-dye at the box office with blue vs. green films

‘Smurfs’ and ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ both end up No. 1 in weekend box office results. By DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES — Little blue Smurfs and not-so-little green men from space are in a photo finish for the No. 1 spot at the weekend box office. Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford’s sci-fi Western “Cowboys & Aliens” and the family adventure “The Smurfs” both opened with $36.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That leaves Sony’s “Smurfs” and Universal’s “Cowboys & Aliens” tied for the top spot. Figuring out the No. 1 movie will have to wait until final numbers are counted today. “In all my years, I’ve never really seen a race this close,” said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. “Generally, in the world of movie box office, $1 million is a close call, so to have two films in a dollar-to-dollar tie is somewhat unprecedented.” Studios often round off their Sunday numbers, which include Friday and Saturday totals plus an estimate of Sunday business based on how similar movies have done in the past. So Sunday figures typically are rounded off to the nearest

$50,000 or $100,000, with more accurate, to-the-dollar numbers generally coming in Monday’s final tally. But Universal released an estimate of $36,206,250, which would have put “Cowboys & Aliens” a fraction ahead of “The Smurfs” in Sunday’s rankings. So Sony, which had reported a rounded-off figure of $36.2 million, matched that $36,206,250 estimate for “The Smurfs.” Studios jockey for the top boxoffice spot to earn “No. 1 film in America” bragging rights in advertising for the coming week. Going into the weekend, “Cowboys & Aliens” seemed to have the edge, with analysts figuring it might top $40 million, while “The Smurfs” might come in around $30 million. But the two movies met in the middle, “Cowboys & Aliens” doing worse than expected and “The Smurfs” doing better. “This is truly a photo finish,” said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal. The previous weekend’s top movie, “Captain America: The First Avenger,” slipped to No. 3 with $24.9 million and raised its domestic total to $116.8 million. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” pulled in $21.9 million to become the franchise’s top-grossing chapter at $318.5 million domestically.

MISSAL

FRED ADAMS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER

"Hello, Wal-Mart, goodbye parking in Wyoming’s business district.” Bob Boyer Wyoming Mayor

Wal-Mart has, according to Boyer, come up with a few options to satisfy PennDOT’s requirements, including creating two northbound and two southbound lanes on Wyoming Avenue. Currently, there is one through lane and a right-turn-only lane in each direction. The retailer has proposed changing the right lanes in each direction into combination through and right

turn lanes. If this was done, approximately 30 parking spaces would be lost. “Hello, Wal-Mart, goodbye parking in Wyoming’s business district,” Boyer said of the proposal. “It’s ludicrous. It would put our people out of business because there’d be nowhere for customers to park,” he said. Another proposal Boyer said

that, when you sing a new text, people learn it faster than just by reciting.” It also helps music directors adapt new words that don’t meter with old music, according to Msgr. Thomas Banick, pastor at Our Lady of Fatima in WilkesBarre. For example, he noted, the prayer that currently is “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of power and might” will become “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts.” That’s three fewer syllables, and the extra time may make it easier for musicians, choirs and parishioners to adapt. Full versions of the new Missal are not officially available yet, though unsanctioned copies have surfaced on the Internet, Rupert said. Bishops have seen draft copies, and priests have been given parts of the changes to help them prepare. There also are cards available that can be

left in church pews where pastors decide to change the singing parts earlier. The new translation “is controversial because it follows the Latin text very, very carefully,” Banick said. “It’s going to take some getting used to.” He cited the parishioner response right before lining up to receive Communion, the most important part of the Mass to Roman Catholics. The current “Lord, I am not worthy to receive you” will change to “Lord, I’m not worthy that you should come under my roof,” Banick said. The change more closely reflects the meaning of the original text. “It’s a direct quote from a centurion who said it to Jesus,” who was about to enter his house, Banick said. Rupert stressed that the ceremony itself is not changing, just some of the words. Nor are the Biblical readings changing; those translations took effect largely unnoticed in 2001. The new Missal also adds specific prayers for the feast days of

newer saints, including Philadelphia’s St. Katherine Drexel, canonized by the late Pope John Paul II in October 2000. Rupert and Banick said they expect the changes will be more difficult for priests than parishioners, particularly those spoken during the consecration, the ritual during which, according to Catholic belief, bread and wine are transubstantiated to the body and blood of Christ. Rupert noted the new prayers will require different cadences and pauses for priests. Banick, who was ordained when the Mass was still celebrated in Latin, predicted most priests will have to keep a close eye on the printed text for some time. After all, many of them have been saying the prayers daily for decades. “When I pray the Eucharistic prayer, I don’t even look at the book,” Banick said. “The first words are addressing God the Father, so the habit is to look out and up, and address God in Heaven. We’ll have to pay attention to the words now, especially at the altar.”

the bad economy and people were staying home. So Gary and I decided to bring the wineries to the people.” The promoters said they have seven wine-themed events planned in 2011 and the Back Mountain Festival is their 21st wine-tasting event since 2008. “The weather’s beautiful and the wines are delicious,” said avid wine fan Kelly Sturgis of Montrose. “I came down with a bunch of friends and I intend to get my money’s worth.” Advance tickets were $15; the charge was $25 at the gate. The organizers’ next scheduled event is the Wayne County Wine and Cheese Festival on Sept. 17 at that county’s fairgrounds.

crowds of tasters gathered around the colorful tasting booths. “This is our third year doing this festival, and in that time it’s grown tremendously,” said co-organizer Gary Miller of NEPA Wine Country. “We actually sold 1,000 advance tickets for (Saturday’s) event and the walk up has been phenomenal,” Miller added. “We originally expected about 700 people this year.” Dan Tompkins, Miller’s partner at NEPA Wine Country, said

that when he returned to Pennsylvania in 2005 after working as an event promoter in the Los Angeles area, he immediately became interested in the area’s burgeoning wine scene. “There were a lot of people who were passionate about supporting our local wine industry,” Tompkins said. “But no one knew exactly where they all were.” He said he joined with longtime friend Miller to organize tasting bus tours to local wineries. “Every seat on every bus was taken,” Tompkins said. “But things started to slow down with

he could support, but it would be more costly to Wal-Mart. He said the company could replace the existing parking spaces by making new ones in the space grassy areas and trees now occupy between the storefronts and the street. Neil Sklaroff, an attorney in Philadelphia who is representing Wal-Mart in the permitting process in Exeter, was on vacation last week and did not return a call seeking comment. Exeter Secretary Debbie Serbin directed calls to borough Solicitor Ray Hassey. A message left for him Friday was not immediately returned.

Both priests agreed the changes are for the better. “There are references to the scripture in our prayers that people don’t always know are there,” Rupert said. “I believe when these changes are pointed out to them, people will see how beautiful they are, and see the depth that is in them.”

nesses that line both sides of Wyoming Avenue between 7th and 9th streets. Exeter has been entertaining plans and proposals from WalMart for a few years as the Bentonville, Ark., retailer has tried to open a new store less than two blocks from the municipal border between the two towns. Exeter officials paved the way for a new Wal-Mart last spring when they approved zoning changes to allow construction on a 15.9-acre parcel along Wyoming Avenue. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has told the retailer that potential traffic congestion must be addressed at the already busy intersection of Wyoming Avenue and 8th Street, less than one-half mile from the proposed new store. James May, a PennDOT District 4 spokesman, said PennDOT’s role was to inform WalMart that it would not get a highway occupancy permit unless traffic concerns were satisfactorily addressed. “We don’t tell them what they have to do. We tell them the problem and tell them to find a way to get it solved,” May said. WalMart has not submitted any plans to PennDOT for review, he said.

A man lights a candle in memory of the 76 people killed in Norway’s twin attacks, allegedly by a ‘homegrown terrorist.’

Don’t end discussion on Norway immigration

I

T IS CUSTOMARY, after every violent tragedy, to observe that lessons must be learned from it. But the reality of the Norwegian massacre is that there are rather few to be learned. Suspect Anders Breivik was patently an obsessive extremist, but his background was both prosperous and liberal; he would not have been first on anyone’s checklist of a potential mass homicide. He did not announce his intentions in advance on the Internet. His views on what he saw as the Islamisation of Norway were extreme, but there might be hundreds of people with identical views who would not dream of turning to mass murder. The only obvious moral is that Norway’s relatively strict gun laws should be better enforced.

Norwegians need a license to own a gun and must keep them in a safe; individuals may not buy automatic weapons. Police may inspect a gun owner’s home. Yet plainly, those laws were poorly enforced. The normal reflex, to call for still stricter laws, is less valid here than to take existing law seriously. What would be a mistake would be to close down a debate on immigration in Norway, where the immigrant population amounts to some12 percent of the total. To put an end to serious debate on this issue would be itself a kind of totalitarianism. A free society always will be vulnerable to the actions of extremists; unfortunately, there always will be those who abuse that freedom. London Evening Standard

QUOTE OF THE DAY “We aim for a society that does not depend on nuclear power.” Naoto Kan Japan’s prime minister last week called for a long-term and careful effort to scale back that nation’s reliance on nuclear power over the next four decades and make more use of solar energy and other renewable power sources. He made the assessment in light of this year’s crisis at the tsunami-damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.

Respect China’s airspace

T

HERE HAVE BEEN reports that two Chinese fighter jets recently intercepted a U.S. U-2 spy plane over the Taiwan Straits. When asked to comment on the incident, U.S. Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said: “We both have to be very careful about how we fly them. We have to be careful about the intercepts.” His remarks certainly sound prudent, but they carefully avoided the crucial point: It is the U.S. military’s dangerous war games around China’s air and maritime territory that repeatedly have triggered China’s legitimate response. The cause and effect should be clear to everyone. And the United States shows no sign of giving up such games. Mullen reiterated on the same occasion that the U.S. military “won’t be deterred from flying in international airspace” on China’s doorstep, despite opposition from Beijing.

Mullen did say that his country does not want a repeat of the incident in 2001, when a Chinese fighter jet and a U.S. military reconnaissance plane collided near China’s coast, killing the Chinese pilot. However, the onus is on the United States to avoid such provocative flights, which can and will cause grave damage to relations between the two countries. Given the increasingly interdependent relations between China and the United States, and the commitment by both governments to build a cooperative partnership in the 21st century, it is in both sides’ interests to build and maintain good-neighborliness based on mutual respect for each other’s sovereignty and national dignity. Washington should show its political will and stop playing with guns on China’s doorsteps. China Daily Beijing

Happy birthday to MTV, though don’t expect a song MTV TURNS 30 years old today. Considering there is very little music featured on the station these days – nor has there been for many years – it would seem almost foolish for what was once known as “Music Television” to even recognize its own milestone. And maybe it won’t. While watching some VH1 Classic over the weekend, I noticed it was that station – not MTV – that was preparing to note MTV’s big 3-0 in a grand way. And though that might seem odd, it makes more sense. At least VH1 Classic is still primarily focused on music. If there is anyone who can properly reflect on the enormous pop cultural impact of the golden era of MTV, I suppose it is people my age. MTV debuted in the summer of 1981, the same year that I entered high school. And MTV began to stray from full music programming around 1989, the year I graduated from college. And thus for all of those years, from when I was 13 to 21, whenever you put on MTV, you usually got music. Much of it was very good. And many people were exposed to new artists and styles. I can still recall August of ’81 and how quickly the station created a buzz among my friends. Fleetwood Mac’s “Hold Me” sticks out as one of the first videos I ever saw. And it was Pete Townshend’s video for “Face Dances, Pt. 2” that inspired me to become a fan of The Who. In 1982, I saw the band for the first time. It was my first rock concert. There were more than 100,000 people there. And it absolutely changed my life. Thank you, MTV. There was much to like about the early days of MTV.

MTV helped popularize bands such as Def Leppard, Duran Duran and Bon Jovi, helped fuel comebacks for bands including Aerosmith and KISS and helped move forward the careers of bands such as The Police and Van Halen. And Michael Jackson? As great as it was, “Thriller” would not have sold 40-some million copies without MTV. There was “MTV Music News” twice an hour, a live concert on Saturday night and the rest of the time it was all music videos, 24/7. It was fantastic. When did it begin to change? And why? According to Scranton native Tom McGrath, who wrote the book “MTV: The Making of a Revolution,” it was only a few years into the station’s existence when programmers first began tweaking its format. I interviewed McGrath in 1996 when his book was published, and I recall him explaining how the same thing that made kids love MTV in the ’80s also made advertisers hate it: Channel-surfing. In MTV’s early days, if you didn’t like a video, so what? You just changed the channel for three minutes and came back. Sometimes,

you’d watch two or three videos in a row. Sometimes not. But you always were switching channels. In 1987, MTV found a solution. It premiered its own game show, “Remote Control.” Viewers liked it. And for the first time, they were staying with MTV for a full 30 minutes. Over time, more and more shows, such as “Beavis and Butt-head” and “The Real World,” were added. Eventually, the only thing missing on “Music Television” was music. Today, of course, it’s worse. Honestly, I don’t know how MTV can still hold its annual “Video Music Awards” when it doesn’t seem to play any music videos at all. But again, that’s nothing new. The last time the network did something interesting with music was when it launched its “Unplugged” series. And that was about 20 years ago. Still, I congratulate MTV on this anniversary. It changed my life for the better; and for a generation, it was a fun and important part of our youth. We did want our MTV. We wanted “Music Television.” And during the most formative years of one generation’s lives, we had it. Happy birthday. Alan K.

Cut, Cap and Balance offers best solution

I can still recall August of ’81 and how quickly the station created a buzz among my friends. Fleetwood Mac’s “Hold Me” sticks out as one of the first videos I ever saw.

s I write this in late July, speaker of the House John Boehner is working on a plan titled the Budget Control Act of 2011 to resolve the debt ceiling matter. I urge Republicans to reject this plan and instead resubmit to the Senate and the president the Cut, Cap and Balance Act already passed by the House of Representatives. It is the only plan that actually cuts and caps spending and includes the only tool that will lead to a balanced budget: a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. Passage of Cut, Cap and Balance will immediately placate the financial markets, forestall a downgrade in our credit rating and put the country on the path to a balanced budget in a few years. Cut, Cap and Balance is reasonable and will achieve its intended goal – a budget that is actually in

balance. On the other hand, Speaker Boehner’s plan as initially written would increase spending every year and add about $7 trillion to the national debt over the next 10 years. The Boehner plan does not result in a balanced budget. It contains reductions in the rate of growth in spending, not reductions in actual spending. The Republican leadership should simply resubmit the Cut, Cap and Balance Act and say this is the only plan it will consid-

er. The American people will support this approach. We need only a few Democrats in the Senate to change their positions and vote in favor of Cut, Cap and Balance. Although U.S. Sen. Robert Casey, D-Scranton, voted to table Cut, Cap and Balance, he has in the past said he supports a balanced budget. President Obama and Sen. Casey are, at the end of the day, career politicians who will bend to the will of the majority so that they can get re-elected. So, let us show them our will. I have been fighting for a balanced budget amendment since I decided to run for the U.S. Senate in October 2010. And, if I were in the Senate today, I would join Sens. Jim DeMint, Rand Paul and Mike Lee and lead the fight to pass Cut, Cap and Balance and return to fiscal sanity in America. Marc A. Scaringi Camp Hill

No deficit of metaphorical remarks There’s been ominous talk of driving off a cliff, collateral damage and loaded guns. By NANCY BENAC Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Not too long ago there was lofty talk of doing something big. Of a reasonable path. Of a grand bargain. That was a few weeks and a few thousand tortured metaphors ago. The debate over raising the federal debt limit has triggered a spiral of rhetorical one-upmanship that has all sides stretching for new analogies and catchy one-liners to sway public opinion. Stretching far enough to pull a few muscles. It was one thing when the president spoke of his desire for a “big” deal. And quite another when press secretary Jay Carney explained that “reasonableness and bigness walk down the street hand in hand.” There’s been ominous talk of driving off a cliff, collateral damage, loaded guns, hostage situations, the dark cloud of uncertainty and the fog of the Twilight Zone. There have been catchy catchphrases like “cut, cap and balance,” later derided as “duck, dodge and dismantle.” Whole genres of metaphorical warfare have sprung up, producing some hits, more misses.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney speaks July 20 during a daily news briefing at the White House.

FOOD FIGHT “We might as well do it now,” President Barack Obama admonished a few weeks back, urging Congress to buckle down to the unpleasant task of raising the debt limit. “Pull off the Band-Aid, eat our peas.” It was an apt metaphor, one that tea party activists were happy to plop in a spoon and fling right back at the White House. “Eat your own peas!” read a tea party sign at a rally on Capitol Hill. House Speaker John Boehner made his own culinary contribution to the debate when he complained that negotiating with the White House was like “dealing with Jell-O.” The Republican National Committee liked that so much it gave the president a new title: “His Jel-

movie “Sophie’s Choice,” in which a Jewish woman must choose which of her two children should be saved from a Nazi death camp. The White House spokesman said failure to raise the debt limit by Tuesday’s deadline would require the government to make difficult choices about which bills to pay and which ones to let slide. “It’s a Sophie’s choice, right?” Carney said. “Who do you save? Who do you pay?” House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi invoked “Star Wars,” saying that Boehner “chose to go to the dark side” when he changed his own legislation to satisfy tea party lawmakers and other critics. It’s probably only a matter of time before someone invokes the Grinch: Obama adviser David Plouffe warned Thursday that ex-

lo-Ness.” AT THE MOVIES Everyone likes a good film, so it’s no surprise that politicians are trying to create a little movie magic of their own. House Democrats complained that the repetitive debt debate was starting to feel like “Groundhog Day.” Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., accused Republicans of taking the country into “The Twilight Zone.” House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy tried to rally GOP support by playing lawmakers a clip of the bank-robber film “The Town,” in which Ben Affleck tells an ally: “I need your help. ... We’re gonna hurt some people.” Carney countered with a cringe-worthy film analogy of his own, harking back to the 1982

DEAL

the world. He thanked the leaders of both parties. House Speaker John Boehner telephoned Obama at mid-evening to say the agreement had been struck, officials said. No votes were expected in either house of Congress until today at the earliest, to give rankand-file lawmakers time to review the package. But leaders in both parties were already beginning the work of rounding up votes. In a conference call with his rank and file, Boehner said the agreement “isn’t the greatest deal in the world, but it shows how much we’ve changed the terms of the debate in this town.” Obama underscored that point. He said that, if enacted, the agreement would mean “the lowest level of domestic spending since Dwight Eisenhower was president” more than a half century ago. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid provided the first word of the agreement. “Sometimes it seems our two sides disagree on almost everything,” he said. “But in the end, reasonable people were able to agree on this: The United States could not take the chance of defaulting on our debt, risking a United States financial collapse and a world-wide depression.” Democratic Sen. Bob Casey said late Sunday night that he will support the deal reached by congressional leaders and the president. But Republican representatives Lou Barletta of Hazleton and Tom Marino of Lycoming Township were withholding judgment. “No compromise is perfect and the process that has brought the country to the brink of default is unconscionable,” Casey, D-Scranton, said in a statement. “The country is running out of options to avoid further economic harm. I will vote to move this compromise forward to avoid default, cut government spending and provide some economic certainty.” But Barletta is “looking at the deal that was struck,” said Shawn Kelly, his spokesman. “He will review it carefully before deciding whether or not he supports it.” Renita Fennick, Marino’s spokeswoman, said Marino and other Republicans just were briefed on the deal late Sunday. Marino “wants to review it carefully” and look over the details and speak with an array of people, from financial experts to business owners and constituents, before he decides whether to

support the deal, Fennick said. In his remarks, Obama said there will be no initial cuts to Social Security and Medicare. But he said both could be on the table along with changes in tax law as part of future cuts. That was a reference to a special joint committee of lawmakers that will be established to recommend a second round of deficit reductions, to be voted on by Congress before year’s end as part of an arrangement to raise the debt ceiling yet again. That is expected to be necessary early next year. A final sticking point had concerned possible cuts in the nation’s defense budget in the next two years. Republicans wanted less. Democrats pressed for more in an attempt to shield domestic accounts from greater reductions. Details apparently included in the agreement provide that the federal debt limit would rise in two stages by at least $2.2 trillion, enough to tide the Treasury over until after the 2012 elections. Big cuts in government spending would be phased in over a decade. Thousands of programs — the Park Service, Labor Department and housing among them — could be trimmed to levels last seen years ago. No Social Security or Medicare benefits would be cut, but

the programs could be scoured for other savings. Taxes would be unlikely to rise. Without legislation in place by Tuesday, the Treasury will not be able to pay all its bills, raising the threat of a default that administration officials say could inflict catastrophic damage on the economy. If approved, though, a compromise would presumably preserve America’s sterling credit rating, reassure investors in financial markets across the globe and possibly reverse the losses that spread across Wall Street in recent days as the threat of a default grew. Officials familiar with the negotiations said McConnell had been in frequent contact with Vice President Joe Biden, who has played an influential role across months of negotiations. In the first stage under the agreement, the nation’s debt limit would rise immediately by nearly $1 trillion and spending would be cut by a slightly larger amount over a decade. That would be followed by creation of the new congressional committee that would have until the end of November to recommend $1.8 trillion or more in deficit cuts, targeting benefit programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, or overhauling the tax code. Those deficit cuts would allow a second

increase in the debt limit. If the committee failed to reach its $1.8 trillion target, or Congress failed to approve its recommendations by the end of 2011, lawmakers would then have to vote on a proposed balanced-budget amendment. If that failed to pass, automatic spending cuts totaling $1.2 trillion would automatically take effect, and the debt limit would rise by an identical amount. Social Security, Medicaid and food stamps would be exempt from the automatic cuts, but payments to doctors, nursing homes and other Medicare providers could be trimmed, as could subsidies to insurance companies that offer an alternative to government-run Medicare. Officials describing those steps spoke on condition of anonymity, citing both the sensitivity of the talks and the potential that details could change. As the president demanded, the deal would allow the debt limit to rise by enough to tide the Treasury over until after the 2012 elections. But it appeared Obama’s proposal to extend the current payroll tax holiday beyond the end of 2011 would not be included, nor his call for extended unemployment benefits for victims of the recession. Republicans would win spending cuts of slightly more than the increase in the debt limit, as they have demanded. Additionally, tax increases would be off-limits unless recommended by the bipartisan committee that is expected to include six Republicans and six Democrats. The conservative campaign to force Congress to approve a balancedbudget amendment to the Constitution would be jettisoned. Congressional Democrats have long insisted that Medicare and Social Security benefits not be cut, a victory for them in the proposal under discussion. Times Leader Washington correspondent Jonathan Riskind contributed to this report.

tending the debt ceiling for just a few months could create a new crisis that would “ruin Christmas.” One House Republican skipped filmography in favor of a literary allusion. Rep. Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania described Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s actions over the past few months as “Profiles in Cowardice.” TIMING, TIMING The countdown to Tuesday’s expiration of government borrowing authority has challenged the White House and lawmakers to come up with creative ways to say that time is short. But yet there’s still time. The clock is ticking. It’s the 11th hour. D-Day approaches. The gun is loaded. And more. “Time is running out,” Carney

said for the umpteenth time this week. A few sentences later, he added: “There’s plenty of time to get this done.” If that seemed to stretch the laws of science, Reid may have provided an explanation. “Magic things can happen here in Congress in a very short period of time under the right circumstances,” he said. Politicians have been equally challenged to come up with new ways to say that the consequences of default would be serious. Carney went with the laundry list approach this week, telling reporters, “The consequences would be severe, calamitous, catastrophic, etc.” GOLDEN OLDIES It wouldn’t be Washington if somebody didn’t complain about the use of “smoke and mirrors” and somebody else didn’t refuse to write a “blank check” and somebody else didn’t pronounce a plan “dead on arrival.” That’s “business as usual.” Thank Boehner and Plouffe, among others, for checking off all of those boxes. And no self-respecting debate can steam ahead without a train analogy. This year, the rails are crowded. “Several trains have left the station,” Carney reported. “It’s a decision about which train we’ll be riding when we get to the next station.” And what will be served on the train? Carney: “Jell-O and peas.”

NFL

WR Burress gets 2nd chance with Jets Tiger back TIM DAHLBERG

By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. AP Sports Writer

Burress

NEW YORK — Stuck in prison and his NFL career derailed, Plaxico Burress insisted he’d be back one day. Rex Ryan and the New York Jets are giving him that second chance. “I’m just grateful,” a confident yet humble Burress said Sunday night. “I’m excited about the opportunity and I’m going to give them every-

thing I’ve got because they put their trust in me to be able to come in and contribute and have an impact.” The former Super Bowl star with the Giants signed a one-year deal with the Jets on Sunday after recently being released from prison after serving 20 months on a gun charge. Burress, who turns 34 on Aug. 12, caught the game-winning touchdown in the Giants’ upset of the un-

beaten New England Patriots in the 2008 Super Bowl, before his career derailed after he accidentally shot himself in a New York nightclub later that year. “When something’s taken away from you that you love, you know you love it more,” he said. “You learn that playing in this business is definitely a privilege. I definitely miss being away from the game and the guys and

being able to compete every Sunday with the best athletes in the world.” Now, the Jets are hoping Burress can revive his career the way Michael Vick did with the Eagles. Vick served18 months in prison for his involvement in a dogfighting ring before returning to football in 2009. He was eased back into things by the See BURRESS, Page 4B

Oswalt goes tonight vs. SWB Yankees Times Leader wire services

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Oswalt will pitch against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees in the first game of a doubleheader at 5:35 p.m. tonight at PNC Field. Oswalt is rehabbing from a back injury . He threw a bullpen session Friday and continues to be encouraged about his rehabilitation. The Phillies righthander said before Friday night’s game against Pittsburgh at Citizens Bank Park that he felt good after Oswalt the session. He has not pitched for the Phillies since throwing two innings on June 23 during a 12-2 loss to the Cardinals in St. Louis. He said that he expects to throw 90 to 95 pitches tonight.

with plenty of advice LIKE MOST OF you, I get much of my Tiger Woods news online, delivered directly from the great one him-

self. It’s where I learned he was missing the U.S. and British Opens, where I saw pictures of his fancy new practice facility in Florida. It’s where I learned he and Elin would be no longer, and where I found out his caddie had been sent packing. Right there on TigerWoods.com, where the latest news is that Woods is excited to be back. “I’m excited to get back out there,” Woods quoted himself as saying. His followers seem just as excited to see him back, with most wishing him good luck in the comments section of the website. Surely Woods will find some of their words inspirational as he returns this week to try salvaging a season on the brink of slipping away. They want him to win, though they’re worried about his leg and concerned about life without caddie Stevie Williams. They hope Woods has his killer instinct back, but don’t seem totally convinced he does. And, unlike the yes men Woods surrounds himself with, they’re not afraid to offer him advice. Most it has absolutely nothing to do with new methods Woods might use to find the fairway with his driver. “Please be nice in your (replies) to news questions,” wrote one, who obviously tuned in for the final round of the Masters this year. “I know it may be hard, but sometimes you are short and not very nice. That does not do you any good, even if it’s a dumb question. Thanks for listening.” That may give hope to TV golf interviewers everywhere, but the Internet suggestion box doesn’t stop there. Amateur psychologists seem particularly interested in Woods’ latest comeback, and they’re eager to share their wisdom with him. “Remember that friends are not always who they seem to be and you should not allow yourself to be hostage to anyone,” wrote one. “You are a free man and if you want to change your caddie, then you have a right just like anyone else to do so. Right now, in my humble opinion, your beloved mother is the only one who has your best interest at heart — so listen to her and you will stay on the straight and narrow.” Someone identifying himself as the Unknown Comic was more Zen-like in offering his take. “Son, perform well. Be yourself. Stick to your plan.” Just what that plan may be, of course, is anyone’s guess. There is no blueprint for overcoming a humiliating scandal, finding yet another new swing, and trying to smash a golf ball more than 300 yards on a leg that could break down on any given swing. But this is Tiger Woods we’re talking about. Winner of 14 majors. Intimidator of other players. Greatest golfer of his era. His fans want that Tiger back, not the one who quit after just nine holes of The Players Championship the last time he played for real. “Now that your physical ability is back, get the attitude back Tiger! Go out there with a chip on your shoulder like you used to have and run away from the pack,” wrote one. “Smash those clowns!” offered another. Unfortunately for Woods, those See TIGER, Page 4B

He doubled to right off Tony Watson (0-2) in the 10th to score Hunter Pence and help the Phillies complete a three-game sweep.

STANDINGS/STATS

LOS ANGELES — Joe Saunders came within four outs of his second straight complete game, Gerardo Parra homered twice and the surging Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Gardner’s triple lifts Yankees over Orioles NEW YORK — Brett Gardner hit a bases-loaded triple and the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2 Sunday. Freddy Garcia (10-7) struck out six in six innings and allowed two runs on five hits to send the Yankees 22 games over .500, their highest point of the season. Derek Jeter left after getting hit by a pitch, but X-rays only showed a bruised right middle finger. New York, which hadn’t announced any deals by the time the non-waiver trade deadline passed at 4 p.m., improved its major league best record in day games to 31-7 and won for the 20th time in its last 26 home games. Yankees reliever David Robertson struck out the side in the eighth and pitched 1 1-3 innings of perfect relief overall before Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth for his 27th save in 31 chances.

general manager Chris Antonetti said. The Indians don’t seem concerned about recent reports that Jimenez, who was 19-8 and an All-Star a year ago, has seen his velocity drop and his ERA rise this year. He is 6-9 with a 4.46 ERA in 21 starts. He had a 2.88 ERA in 2010. They paid a hefty price for the right-hander who spent much of April on the DL, giving up minor league pitchers Alex White and Joe Gardner, first baseman Matt McBride and a player to be named, expected to be lefty Drew Pomeranz. White and Pomeranz were considered the top two pitching prospects in Cleveland’s organization. “It was painful for us,” Antonetti said, “but we decided the time was right. We’re a better team than we were.” Division-rival Detroit made a move, too, getting right-hander Doug Fister from Seattle on Saturday and will add him to the rotation. The Tigers also received reliever David Pauley for two prospects and a player to be named. After a record 18 straight losing seasons, the Pirates are in the thick of it in the NL Central race, and they showed they’re serious in dealing for San Diego outfielder Ryan Ludwick — a day after acquiring Baltimore first baseman Derrek Lee. The Diamondbacks bolstered their bullpen, adding Oakland submariner Brad Ziegler as they chase the World Series champion Giants in the NL West. On Saturday, Arizona obtained Jason Marquis from the Nationals. “We’re trying to get better and trying to make the bullpen better,” Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. “I think you’re seeing an effort by the organization to try and let us continue to do what we’ve done and go beyond what we’ve done. So that part of it energizes you.” In other deals Sunday: •The AL East-leading Red Sox picked up Bedard after a deal for Rich Harden fell through late Saturday. Six prospects were involved in a threeteam, seven-player trade involving the Los Angeles Dodgers. • The St. Louis Cardinals acquired Furcal, a two-time AllStar shortstop, from the Dodgers for Double-A outfielder Alex Castellanos. • Texas further bolstered its bullpen a day after adding Baltimore right-hander Koji Uehara by dealing for Adams, San Diego’s stellar setup man. • Atlanta made a move to keep up with the NL East-leading Phillies, getting Bourn from the Astros, who also sent Pence to Philadelphia on Friday night.

opinions. They’re going to say what they want to say. That’s fine with me. We’ll celebrate this. We’ll enjoy it. Whatever they say, they say. Can’t control it. “I know what I’m capable of.” Menard has bounced around NASCAR the past few years as teams were eager to land John Menard’s sponsorship money but failed to spend it on winning race cars. Going into this year, Menard’s only victory was in 2006 in the second-tier Nationwide Series. Richard Childress was another car owner willing to cash the checks from the Menard’s chain, and he signed both driver and sponsor for this season. But Richard Childress Racing was on an upswing, and the owner believed his new driver just needed a competitive car to prove his worth. Although Sunday was Menard’s first win, he and crew chief Slugger Labbe had been steadily improving all season and his four topfive finishes this season double the amount he had in his first four seasons in Sprint Cup. “I caught a lot of flak back early last year when we decided to (hire Menard),” Childress said. “I’ve been watching Paul ever since he won the Nationwide race. He doesn’t tear equipment up. He’s consistent. He’s really good. Got a cool head on him in all situations. I knew if the right situation come along, we’d win.” It came Sunday in a race that was at first dominated by drivers with the strongest cars. But when debris cautions jumbled up the pit cycles, the Brickyard 400 turned into a race of pure strategy. Menard and his RCR team played it brilliantly, as crew chief Slugger Labbe had Menard give the lead up to defending race winner Jamie McMurray in an effort to save fuel. Certain McMurray didn’t have enough gas to make it to the finish, Labbe then turned his attention to Jeff Gordon, who fell 12 seconds behind after a late fuel stop but was slicing his way through the field. Labbe gave Menard the green light with just over three laps to go. He passed McMurray for the lead, and was silent as he circled the track with Labbe giving constant updates on Gordon’s lap times. Gordon ran out of time, and Menard cruised to his first career victory in his 167th career start. Menard’s only other victory came in the second-tier Nationwide Series in 2006. Quiet and reserved by nature, that didn’t change as Menard crossed the finish line. As his team screamed over the radio, Menard quietly asked, “that’s the checkered, right?” Atop the pit box, his billionaire father was far less reserved. “I’ve been waiting to kiss these bricks for such a long time. I’m ready!” John Menard yelled. John Menard, owner of the family’s Midwest-based hardware chain who has a decades-long involvement in racing, was ecstatic and seemingly near tears. He fielded cars for years in the IndyCar Series, and suffered his own Indianapolis 500 heartbreak as a car owner. He entered 34 cars in the Indy 500 from 1982 through 2003, won three poles but never finished higher than third, in 1992 with Al Unser driving. “I’ve been coming here since I was a little kid, my dad tried to win this race for 35 years, so this is for my dad,” Menard said. “A lot of emotions right now. I went to every Indy 500 from 1989 to 2003, I was here for the inaugural Brickyard 400 in ’94, for my family and for myself, Indianapolis is a very special place.” “He’s a good boy,” John Menard said before racing to Victory Lane to embrace his son. Menard’s victory Sunday continued the trend of first-time winners this season in NASCAR’s crown jewel events. Trevor Bayne won the Daytona 500, Regan Smith won at Darlington Raceway and David Ragan won earlier this month at Daytona.

A loss to DuBois eliminated Francisco 49ers, ESPN reported, but canceled that trip when the Jets contacted him. He agreed to come back to New York, but in green and white this time, without even visiting with the Jets or speaking to Rex Ryan. “There was no sales pitch needed,” he said. “You just look at all the pieces that are in place. You get a chance to compete for a world championship every year, play for a great organization, play with a great quarterback. I get to play beside Santonio Holmes and a future Hall of Famer in LaDainian Tomlinson.” Burress also appreciated how owner Woody Johnson and general manager Mike Tannenbaum met with him in 2009. “They were really the first team to support me with everything that I had going on at that time,” he said, “and it just felt right for me to be able to come here with everything that I had going on a couple of years ago, to have those guys approach me in the way that they did I just felt I made the right decision.” Masters showed. Besides, it’s hard to intimidate anyone when you’re hitting the ball so sideways it ends up on the adjoining hole.

Mitchell, capped by a three-run home run by Jeff Bailey. Mitchell struggled all night, allowing ten hits, two shy of a season high for a Yankees starting pitcher. “He just struggled with his command all night,” said Miley. Mitchell allowed at least two Rochester hits in each of the first four innings and also gave up a three-run home run to Chase Lambin in the third. He finished the game with three walks and no strikeouts, the first time in 19 starts this season that Mitchell failed to strike out a batter. Blown leads have become a recent habit for the Yankees.

They scored a first-inning run against Rochester Saturday night, then gave up a pair to the Red Wings in the bottom of the inning, eventually losing 6-2. In Friday’s series finale in Buffalo, the Yankees scored two in the first and led 4-0 before dropping an 8-5 decision. “We started out the road trip really well,” Miley said. The Yankees took the first three games of the Buffalo series. “We just couldn’t make it hold up here, and our pitchers had too many walks in Buffalo.” Given a second chance, Red Wings starter Liam Hendriks didn’t look back.

Williams captures 1st title of comeback By ANTONIO GONZALEZ AP Sports Writer

STANFORD, Calif. — Serena Williams has captured her first tournament title since returning to tennis, beating Marion Bartoli 7-5, 6-1 to win the Bank of the West Classic on Sunday. The 13-time major champion overcame two breaks in the first set to rally for a dominating finish. She went ahead 5-0 in the second and never relented. The victory was even sweeter because the ninth-ranked Bartoli beat the former world No. 1 in straight sets in the fourth round at Wimbledon this year. The finals appearance also was the first for Williams since winning at the All England Club in 2010 and her best showing since missing nearly a year because of blood clots in her lungs and two foot operations.

All those worries washed away this week. Unseeded and ranked169th, Williams mowed down the competition with relative Serena Williams ease, including a 6-1, 6-3 thumping of Maria Sharapova in the quarterfinals. She capped it off with a vintage performance against a well-rested Bartoli, who advanced when Slovakia’s Dominika Cibulkova withdrew in the other semifinal because of a strained abdominal muscle. Sporting a long-sleeve green shirt and black skirt, the conservative outfit — by the Williams sisters’ standards, anyway — matched her strategy. She was calm and cool behind Bartoli’s go-for-broke

shots and second serve topping100 mph, having a harder time with the elements. Williams had struggled serving into the sun on a crisp and clear day at Stanford, even hitting a few serves with a shortened toss and awkward delivery. She was broken in the third game of the match and eventually went down 4-2. Williams saved two break points and moved back to 4-3, pumping her fist in celebration with a forehand winner. Bartoli broke back and served for the match at 5-4, first requesting a trainer to deal with a blister on her right hand. After a long rally on set point for Williams, somebody in the crowd yelled “out” while Bartoli returned a ball from the baseline. The French woman kept playing before hitting the next ball into the net to give Williams the set.

Bartoli argued unsuccessfully with the chair umpire to replay the point, and she requested a trainer between sets. She lost her serve in the second game, went down 5-0 and watched as Williams skipped around the court at Taube Tennis Center. Such a small victory for Williams has never meant so much. AfterwinningWimbledoninJuly2010, she was out for nearly a year recovering from various health scares. The worst were two foot operations and blood clots in her lungs that left her depressed and “on my deathbed,” as she put it, much less wondering if she could ever play again. Now Williams is not only back but ready to make a run on the hard-court series this summer and at U.S. Open beginning in late August.

Browne gets major win

Journeyman golfer closes with a even-par 71 to record his biggest victory in 27 years of playing. By RUSTY MILLER AP Sports Writer

TOLEDO, Ohio — After a stoic week, Olin Browne finally let loose. Browne showed little emotion until rolling in a 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole to clinch a three-shot victory over Mark O’Meara in the U.S. Senior Open on Sunday. After Browne’s last putt dropped and a large gallery around the final green at InvernessClubroareditsapproval,heraised his arms in triumph. It was the biggest victory of the journeyman’s 27 years as a pro-

fessional. Browne’s closing even-par 71 followed rounds of 64, 69 and 65 andlefthimat15-under 269. Making few mistakes, he parred the Browne first seven holes. After a bogey dropped him into a tie with O’Meara (72), he played the last 10 holes in1under,whileO’Mearamadetwocostly bogeys. Mark Calcavecchia shot a 69 and was alone in third at 273. Ageless Hale Irwin had a 68 and was another shot back along with Joey Sindelar (70). Browne changed his approach in the finalround.Hehadmade15birdiesandtwo eagles to blitz the field and take a two-

stroke lead into the final round. But in the last18 holes, he played within himself and was content to settle for pars while everyone else tried to catch him. O’Meara, winner of the 1998 Masters and British Open, caught up but couldn’t hang on. With Browne typically finding the fairway, hitting the green in regulation and then making two putts for par, it was O’Meara who blinked in their final-round, head-to-head matchup in the last pairing. With Browne and O’Meara tied for the lead,O’Mearalosthisshareforgoodwhen his drive on the par-4, 461-yard13th ended up behind a tree left of the fairway. He was forced to hit a low draw around the tree that hit another tree and ended up in the deep rough right of the green. He muscled the chip shot out of the high grass, but it

Browne maintained his one-stroke lead until Inverness’ most difficult hole, the longanduphillpar-4,488-yard16th.While Browne was splitting the fairway and hitting a hybrid pin high on the green, O’Meara’s long-iron approach came up 30 yards short of the green. He chipped to 20 feet below the hole and failed to make the par putt as the lead doubled. Playing keep-away with the lead, Browne made a 12-foot par putt on the 17th green. At the 18th hole made famous by Bob Tway’s sand shot that broke Greg Norman’s heart to win the 1986 PGA Championship, Browne drove into the first cut of rough and calmly put a wedge on the green. Safely below the hole, he strokedtheputtintothemiddleofthecup.

OCEANPORT, N.J. — Nothing was going right for Bob Baffert until the end of the $1 million Haskell Invitational. His 3-year-old colt Coil drew the hated inside No. 1 post for the race. At the start, Coil bobbled and broke last in the field of eight, which included Preakness winner Shackleford and Belmont Stakes winner Ruler On Ice. “I thought it was over right there,” the Hall of Fame trainer said. “I thought we came a long way to taking a mucking.” Jockey Martin Garcia had other ideas. The jockey didn’t panic, settled Coil comfortably in the back of the pack and then picked off every one of his rivals, finally collaring Shackleford and edging away to win the Haskell by a neck at Monmouth Park on Sunday. “Down the backstretch, I thought he was going to have to be like his dad, Point Given, to win,” Baffert said, referring to the first of his record five Haskell winners. “In the stretch, when he was passing Shackleford it was almost like I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. His comeback race was amazing.” Baffert is 5-for-5 at the Haskell since 2001, and his annual trips from California to the Jersey Shore have been a blast. He won with Point Given in 2001, War Emblem in 2002, Roman Ruler in 2005 and Lookin At Lucky last year. Coil was not in the same class as Baffert’s other Haskell winners, but moves up in stature with his first Grade 1 victory. “It’s just great to be back at Monmouth Park,” Baffert said. Ruler On Ice finished third, followed by J J’s Lucky Train, Pants On Fire, Joe Vann, Astrology and Concealed Identity. The winning time for 1 1/8 miles was 1:48.20. With the victory, Coil earned an automatic berth to the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Churchill Downs in November under the Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” program. The result leaves the 3-year-old division wide open. Either Shackleford or Ruler On Ice would have been at the head of the class with a win, but with Coil’s victory coupled with Stay Thirsty’s win in the Jim Dandy at Saratoga on Saturday, there is no clear-cut leader.

Rookie Stallings wins Greenbrier Classic in 3-way playoff The Associated Press

Scott Stallings hugs his wife Jennifer after winning the Greenbrier Classic PGA golf tournament at the Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., Sunday. The rookie won the tournament in a three-way playoff.

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — PGA Tour rookie Scott Stallings won the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday, sinking a birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat Bob Estes and Bill Haas. After watching Estes and Haas miss their birdie attempts on the 168-yard 18th hole, Stallings curled in a 7-footer for his first tour victory. He flipped his putter, then hugged and high-fived his caddie. Stallings made six birdies on the back nine to make the playoff, where he earned a winner’s check of $1.08 million and a spot in the Bridgestone Invitational. It marked the second straight week that a tournament was won in sudden death. Sean O’Hair beat Kris Blanks on the first playoff hole a week ago at the Canadian Open. In just its second year, the Greenbrier Classic produced another dramatic finish. Stuart Appleby shot 59 in last year’s final round, including a birdie on the last hole to beat Jeff Overton by a stroke. Haas earned his fourth top-10 finish of the season, while the 45-year-old Estes missed out on his first tour win since 2002 and fifth overall. Estes battled a wrist injury earlier this year and was playing in just his seventh tournament.

Estes shot 6-under 64 and was the clubhouse leader at 10 under, then watched as Haas birdied the par-5 17th six groups later to join him after a 67. Stallings, who shot 69, bogeyed the par-5 17th after his drive went out of bounds and he needed a birdie at No. 18 to make the playoff. He sank a 5-footer to do it. Women’s British Open CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Caroline Masson of Germany shot a 4-under 68 to double her lead to two strokes after the third round.. The 22-year-old Masson made three birdies in the front nine and three on the back to hold off a late charge from Yani Tseng. The top-ranked Taiwenese player closed within a shot at one point after picking up five strokes in as many holes, including an eagle. Masson has totaled 15-under 201. Catriona Matthew of Scotland leads the home challenge, but she is six shots off the pace after hitting a 68. Inbee Park of South Korea is also at 207 for a share of third place. PGA Greenbrier Classic WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Anthony Kim shot an 8-under 62 to take a one-stroke

lead after the third round. Kim is at 10-under 200 on the Old White TPC course. Tour rookie Scott Stallings shot 66 to move into second place at 9 under. Gary Woodland (67) and Webb Simpson (69) are two shots back. Simpson was the second round co-leader with Brendon de Jonge. De Jonge shot 72 to fall five strokes behind. Kim’s best round of the year left him with a chance to earn a spot in next week’s Bridgestone Invitational with a win. His last win came a year ago at the Shell Houston Open before he underwent thumb surgery and took three months off. European PGA Irish Open KILLARNEY, Ireland — David Howell, Richard Green and Simon Dyson are in a three-way tie after three rounds. Homegrown stars Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell fell out of contention with 72s on a wet, windy day. England veteran Howell shot a 7-under 64 for the best score of the day. England’s Dyson and Australia’s Green both shot 67 as many in the pared-down field struggled with blustery, damp conditions.

After some unexpected showers spoiled our Sunday, a few more rain showers, and maybe even a thunderstorm will roll through the region on this first day of August. A cold front will pass, and set the stage for more sun tomorrow. Temperatures this week will remain in the 80s for afternoon highs with the threat for showers again Wednesday and later next weekend. Each occurrence will be connected to a cold front which will briefly drop humidity levels, or at least keep them in check. - Ryan Coyle

Divorcing wife wants others to know she isn’t to blame for the split Dear Abby: My husband, “Vinny,” and I were growing apart after 10 years of marriage. It was both our faults. Vinny reconnected with a woman at his class reunion and started an inappropriate, secret relationship with her. I discovered some of their emails and saw they had been texting numerous times a day. When I “busted” Vinny, he denied everything until I showed him the proof of what I knew. We have had issues in the past with him not being honest, but this was the straw that broke the camel’s back. We have told our children that we have decided to divorce. It was the most difficult decision I have ever

DEAR ABBY ADVICE made. We are still living in the same house and haven’t told many people what happened. I don’t want anyone thinking I strayed or that I was responsible for this. Would it be inappropriate for me to say why I’m divorcing him? I don’t want to take his feelings into consideration after what he did. My neighbors are gossipy — it’s like ... — Wisteria Lane Dear Wisteria Lane: Although you don’t want to take Vinny’s feelings into consideration, please consider the feelings of your children. The most

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

dignified way to deal with this would be to take the high road and say that the decision to divorce was mutual and keep the details to yourself. Dear Abby: I am writing regarding the letter you printed June 14, about saluting the U.S. flag. You should be aware that the Flag Code that you referenced in your reply was amended by Congress a couple of years ago and includes changes of which all Americans should be made aware. One of them is that military veterans, as civilians who are no longer in uniform, may choose to salute the flag with the military “hand to the forehead” salute as they did while in the service. All other persons should face the flag and stand at attention with their

CRYPTOQUOTE

right hand over the heart, or if applicable, should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Citizens of other countries should stand at attention. All conduct toward the flag in a moving column should be rendered at the moment the flag passes. This includes the playing of the national anthem. — Andy Anderson, Knoxville, Tenn. Dear Andy: Thank you and the many readers who wrote to inform me that my copy of the Flag Code was outdated. I was unaware that it had been amended and used the one that was in my files for reference. Dear Abby: My husband and I have dinner with friends a couple of

times a month. The wife likes to kiss and hug me. This makes me very uncomfortable. I enjoy being affectionate with my children, grandchildren and husband, but I do not like being touched by women. What should I do about this? — Hands Off in Hollister, Calif. Dear Hands Off: For heaven’s sake, speak up and tell the woman that you are uncomfortable about being touched by other women. That way she’ll know it isn’t personal. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

GOREN BRIDGE WITH OMAR SHARIF & TANNAH HIRSCH PREVIOUS DAY’S SOLUTION

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your role in a group will shift. Your age might play a factor in this change — perhaps you are no longer the youngest or the oldest, and you’ll move into the role that now fits you best. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone wronged you in the past, and you’re starting to let it go. It’s likely you’ve already told everyone who needs to know about this, and talking any more about it will only slow down the process. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will be quite impressed with the one who puts your needs before his or her own. The generous gesture will be emotionally stirring, if not now then in retrospect. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don’t have to know someone well to feel comfortable around him or her. This is because you are so worldly. Your experiences have taught you what to expect from people. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A person who ignores signs is either asleep, in denial or illiterate. You are none of those things. You will read and heed the signs — not because you are superstitious, but because you know it’s wise. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When people ask your opinion, you tell the truth. You know better than to offer up an honest report when no one has asked for it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Everyone is a bit touchy now, so it’s not the best time to get into a debate. If you do argue or disagree, be sure to dispute words and ideas — not the person who is generating them.

HOW TO CONTACT: Dear Abby: PO Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Most pain comes from resisting change or trying to control the uncontrollable. Knowing this, you will choose a pain-free route. You will stay within your boundaries and exert your will judiciously. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Like a cowboy breaking in a new horse, once thrown, you get right back in the saddle. Both horse and rider will be positively changed by the process. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will witness the undoing of a situation. Though the action goes by quickly, you are so observant that you won’t miss a thing. This knowledge is power that you’ll later use to solve a problem. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your loved ones may be tense and cranky. Their attitude doesn’t make your life any easier. If you call them out on their behavior, things only get worse. Lead by example. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be dealing with forces that are nearly impossible to mold and opinions that were formed so long ago that it would take a miracle to change them. You just might be that miracle. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 1). You have a knack for putting yourself in situations where you can grow your talents. This month, you’ll do what you ordinarily wouldn’t, to favorable effect on your personal life. September shows you working with new tools. Windfalls come in January and June, and you’ll be promoted. Scorpio and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 11, 20, 25 and 39.
