... the Canal Days Basket Bingo Chair
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com DELPHOS—On Saturday afternoon between 2-4 p.m. during Canal Days, take a short hike up to the Social Tent at Fourth and Main streets where Basket Bingo will be in full swing . Basket Bingo chair Diane Sterling got involved with Canal Days when she was hired for the Executive Director position for the chamber in 2003. The board of directors, Eric Fritz and Jim Grothouse, asked if she was interested. “I took the job and I’ve been hooked on Canal Days ever since,” Sterling said with passion. “I always loved helping family members with weddings and other family functions but I would have never thought that love of organizing events would lead me to Canal Days.” As the Event Coordinator for Canal Days, Sterling is always looking for something different to do to bring people to downtown Delphos. When the purse bingo rage came through the area, Sterling thought they needed to do something similar during the festival. “Three years ago, we had purses but then it evolved into Basket Bingo when we had country-themed events,” Sterling explained. “Each picnic basket holds a prize and some prizes are big and some are very small.” Preparation for the event begins during the winter months when Sterling collects picnic baskets at flea markets and auctions. In May, she gathers prizes for the 20 baskets. Sterling and The Toast committee girls work the Basket Bingo event on Saturday afternoon. She said an hour before the event, the committee workers put signs on the tables under the Social Tent to reserve the tables for Bingo. Then they get the baskets lined up and wait for the women to appear. “It’s a great time especially when you are a winner,” she said excitedly. The idea of the game is you win at Bingo and then pick a basket, not

knowing what’s in the basket. “We cross the prizes off the list as the games continue so everyone knows what is still left,” she explained. “Last year, the 42-inch flat screen TV was one of the last items to go.” Her favorite part of Canal Days is the planning and she has been doing it for 11 years. “We have such a great core group and the committee heads are wonderful that help with Canal Days,” she added. “We are like one big family and would do anything to help each other out. Our common bond is a successful Canal Days.” See BINGO, page 10

COLUMBUS — A steady unemployment rate is better news than many Ohioans feared. Just one month after the state reported the second-largest job loss for any state in the union in June, employment in the Buckeye State increased by 5,300 jobs, providing good news. According to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS), the number of unemployed workers was also up — about 3,000 people. That was enough to keep the July jobless rate in Ohio right where it was last month, at 7.2 percent. That figure is exactly the same as July 2012, but it remains a little higher than the first few months of this year. See JOBLESS, page 10

Proposal would help Ohio cities raze vacant homes


TOLEDO (AP) — Ohio’s big cities this year will raze hundreds of vacant homes that are a danger and a drag on neighborhoods, but it’s not enough to keep up with the backlog of empty buildings that number in the thousands. A proposal in Congress backed by Ohio’s Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman is aiming to speed up the work. Portman has been meeting with mayors and big city officials this summer to tout a bill that would transfer $60 million left over from foreclosure relief funds to housing demolition in the state. An estimated 100,000 homes in the state are dilapidated and should be torn down, according to The Western Reserve Land Conservancy, a land conservation based in suburban Cleveland. Cities want to get rid of vacant buildings to stabilize property values, reduce crime, and improve the quality of life in neighborhoods. Vacant buildings are convenient targets for arsonists and drug dealers. City officials in Cleveland said last year that there are 8,500 houses ready to be razed. In Toledo, the city says 3,000 homes are in need of being torn down. Dayton plans to spend more than $5 million to demolish 475 abandoned structures this year in an effort to speed up the number of vacant houses and buildings being demolished. Portman wants unspent money in a fund Congress created in 2010 to help states that have had the biggest decline in home prices to be freed up for home demolitions. U.S. Reps. Marcia Fudge, David Joyce and Marcy Kaptur — all who represent parts of northern Ohio — also are behind the plan. “This is a partnership, one place we can help, to improve home values, which is where the money started with,” Portman said while in Lima in July. “If you have houses like this in the neighborhood, it’s hard to see your home value go up.” Ohio U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat, thinks a bigger share of the money should go toward housing counseling and foreclosure prevention. Lima Mayor David Berger said his city has 1,200 that are worthy of being demolished. The city normally spends about $150,000 a year to get rid of about 30 structures. Berger said the city would need more than $5 million needed just to deal with all of its abandoned properties. “We just don’t have that,” he said. Portman attended the demolition of a vacant home in Toledo that was cheered by neighbors on Friday.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A statewide push to improve child support collection rates is getting mixed results from county to county in Ohio. The varying outcomes can be attributed mainly to two things, say child support experts: how much money counties spend to find those who owe child support and the economy in the individual counties. Ohio last year set a goal of increasing collections to 70 percent by the middle of 2015 so that it can to apply for federal grants to pay for caseworkers and programs to help parents. The state average is about 66 percent, which is still better than the national average of 61 percent, said Benjamin Johnson, a Department of Job and Family Services spokesman. Around the state, Geauga and Delaware counties each collected over 80 percent of the childsupport money owed in the last fiscal year. Both of those counties have some of the lowest unemployment rates in the state, The Columbus

Dispatch reported. Two of Ohio’s biggest counties, Cuyahoga and Hamilton, were among those with the lowest collection rates. Meigs County in southeast Ohio, which had the worst unemployment rate in the state in June, also was near the bottom in collections. The director of Franklin County’s Child Support Enforcement Agency said that the number of parents with late child-support payments grew in recent years with the economic downturn. Almost a third of those who owe in the county that includes Columbus have limited education and are likely to earn lower wages, said Susan Brown, director of Franklin County’s agency. Another factor is government funding. Each county decides how much it wants to spend on collecting child support, meaning that the number of cases assigned to child-support caseworkers differs by county.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” is serving up success at the box office.

Dergarabedian said. “It would have had a better shot.” Apart from Winfrey’s unmatched marketing power, “The Butler” also marked the mogul’s return to the big screen for the first time since 1998’s “Beloved.” “She was a significant factor” in the film’s success this weekend, Lomis said. “Her publicity machine really kicked into high gear, and the entire cast, Lee Daniels and Forest Whitaker, they delivered a quality film and a great campaign.” The summer typically belongs to superheroes and big-action fare, which is why Weinstein chose to release “The Butler” now. “It’s different from pretty much everything else in the marketplace,” Lomis said. “That really seemed to help.” But the power of Oprah cannot be underestimated. “It’s stronger than anything else,” Dergarabedian said. “An Oprah Winfrey endorsement virtually guarantees you a hit.” Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com.

Wildcats open scrimmage season impressively
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com BATH TOWNSHIP — Jefferson opened its football scrimmage season in impressive fashion Saturday morning, mauling Bath with an up-tempo offense and a swarming defense. Senior quarterback threw touchdown passes to seniors Joe Gorman, Ross Thompson and Zavier Buzard, while junior Jordan McCann and sophomore Dalton Hicks ran for scores for the varsity. Gorman added four successful extra points. The defense gave up one score in the later parts of the scrimmage on a 2-yard run. After practicing unrushed extra points and field goals, Jefferson’s offense took the field for a full 15-minute quarter (with a running clock). Running off 35-plus plays with their new hurry-up offense, the Wildcats scored three touchdowns: Gorman caught a 10-yard toss from Jettinghoff at 12:19; Thompson nabbed a 35-yard scoring aerial from Jettinghoff at 9:51; and Jettinghoff found Buzard for a 25-yarder at 6:10. When Bath’s offense had its turn in the second quarter, the Jeffcat ‘D’ kept them out of the end zone, only allowing the home team to get to their 4.

Anderson, Sherman, Stewart are 2013 Limaland Champs
Schroeder grabs NRA Sprint Invaders Title
Information submitted LIMA — Limaland Motorsports Park concluded its 16th season under the ownership and operation of the University of Northwestern Ohio by crowning track champions in all three racing divisions and the touring K & L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders Friday night. Ideal weather conditions greeted another huge crowd at the pristine facility on Dutch Hollow Road and the racing action did not disappoint. The evening’s features began with a stacked field of cars for the sprint cars. Veteran car owner Ron Hammons fielded a second entry on this night with Pennsylvania star Tim Schaffer competing alongside teammate J.R. Stewart, who began with the points lead and ultimately ended the night as the track champion. Schaffer started on the pole for the 25-lap showdown with 2012 track champ Hud Horton to his outside on the front row. Horton, who missed a few starts at midseason, was very fast and roared to the front through the opening laps. Schaffer executed a perfect slide job pass through turn two and took over the lead position on lap nine. A series of dramatic spills saw Horton and eventual NRA champ Butch Schroeder become eliminated, with Schaffer left to hold off young guns Sheldon Haudenschild, Dallas Hewitt and veterans Darren Long and Phil Gressman. Although the action was dramatic for spectators, no one was able to get around the experienced Schaffer; the nationally-prominent sprint car driver posted his first-ever win at the track. “I had a great starting spot,” admitted Schaffer afterwards. “Ron Hammons (car owner) gives me a great race car and when you combine the two, it makes for great fun. To be here on the front straight for a

When the Jefferson offense had its turn in the third period, McCann ran it in from 3 yards out at 5:27 and Hicks tacked on a 1-yarder at 1:20. The Bath first-team offense avoided being goose-egged by finally scoring at 1:05 and converted the point-after. “We liked what we saw from both sides. We want to push the tempo offensively,” Jefferson coach Bub Lindeman said. “We have a quarterback in Austin who has the experience and maturity to run this offense and make good decisions. We have good skill people around him and we wanted to see what they could do. We made good adjustments to their adjustments. I was most pleased with our offensive line; that was my biggest concern coming in and they got better as the scrimmage wore on.” With the junior varsity taking over, neither team scored in its first series of 10 plays. Jefferson scored three times on its second possession: a 67-yard run by Trevor Dudgeon, a 65-yarder by Aaron Parkins and a 5-yard pass from Jace Stockwell to Damien Dudgeon. “Defensively, we ran to the football. That is our focus; to get more people to the football,” Lindeman added. “You could see how much our team speed has improved; we have a lot of guys that can run. I also liked our intensity; we played hard the entire way.” Jefferson hosts defending Division VI champion Marion Local 6:30 p.m. Friday.

It added to previous titles in 2008, ’09 and ’10. Stewart accomplished the points crown without winning a feature race during the season. “Been a wild season for us to wind up as track champion,” said the soft-spoken Stewart. “Hats off to Ron (Hammons) and my crew chief Zach Swisher. He is the hardest-working man in the pits.” Leipsic racer Schroeder finished 18th but still held onto the points championship in winning the touring NRA crown. He won the title without capturing a feature win during this 2013 season. “I’m thankful to my wife, crew, owners and sponsors. It is great fun to race here (Limaland) and to race with these NRA guys,” said Schroeder. The 20-lap K & N Modified feature would determine if either Todd Sherman or UNOH Racer Kody Weisner would reign as champion for 2013. Pole starter Matt Westfall was intent on adding to his earlier conquest from June 14 of this season. He blasted to the front at the start and at times seemed to stretch out his advantage. Weisner, starting on the outside of the front row, gave chase to Westfall but couldn’t complete a pass for the lead. Westfall was impressive as he navigated through lapped traffic and just a pair of caution flags to post his second win of the season. “When you get into lapped cars and you’re running at the top, you start pulling slide jobs and you’re not sure if anybody is there or not,” explained the Troy competitor. “This is the best season I’ve ever had and I can only thank all of my crew.” See LIMALAND, page 7

Bailey, Reds beat Brewers 9-1
By JOE TOTORAITIS Associated Press MILWAUKEE — Homer Bailey didn’t let the Milwaukee Brewers’ earlier success bother him one bit. Bailey allowed one run and three hits in eight innings and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Brewers 9-1 on Sunday. Bailey (8-10) won his third straight decision by beating a team that has given him trouble in the past. He improved his career mark against Milwaukee to 2-7 in 14 starts with his first win in three starts against the Brewers this season. “For some reason, this team has usually done pretty well against me,” Bailey said. “I never really thought about it, so I just kind of went out there and tried to pitch a little bit.” He did more than a little bit against the Brewers, thanks to good fastball location and a tough curveball. Scooter Gennett’s double in the second and Khris Davis’ solo shot in the fifth and infield single in the seventh were the only hits for the Brewers. Bailey walked one and struck out eight, including Juan Francisco three times. “Since we have seen these guys so many times, I am starting to get a better feel for them,” Bailey added after earning his first win at Miller Park. Bailey had been 0-3 in five career starts in Milwaukee. The Reds, who lost 2-0 on Saturday night, batted around in the second inning as an erratic Wily Peralta (8-13) allowed five runs. Cincinnati sent 10 men to the plate in the fifth and tacked on four more runs. “You play for the big inning and if not, you play for one,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “To get big innings like that is huge.” The victory sent the Reds back to Cincinnati with a successful 7-game road trip. They swept a 3-game series with the Chicago Cubs before heading to Milwaukee. “Main thing, we had a pretty good road trip, 5-2,” Baker said. “We will be happy with what we got.” Peralta gave up singles to the first four batters, capped by Ryan Hanigan’s 2-run hit. A walk to Shin-Soo Choo loaded the bases for Joey Votto and a passed ball added another run. The Brewers walked Votto intentionally and set up Peralta to face Brandon Phillips, who was 1-12 against the righthander. Phillips’ 2-run single

foiled the move and gave Bailey a 5-0 lead in the second. Peralta settled down for the next two innings but walked Phillips to start the fifth. He advanced on a wild pitch and took third on a fly ball to the warning track in right. Chris Heisey ended Peralta’s 26th start of the season with a runscoring single. Tyler Thornburg took over but struggled just as much as Peralta. The Reds batted around for the second time and capitalized on Thornburg’s wildness. He issued four walks, including two with the bases loaded, and allowed a run-scoring single to Hanigan, who had two hits and three RBIs. Alfredo Simon pitched the ninth for the Reds. Peralta allowed seven runs and eight hits, walked four and struck out four over 4 1/3 innings on Sunday. He slipped to 1-3 in four starts this season against the Reds.

Logano holds off Harvick for crucial Michigan win
Associated Press BROOKLYN, Mich. — Joey Logano gave Ford a Sprint Cup sweep in Michigan — and enabled team owner Roger Penske to celebrate a victory in his home state. Now Logano can start to envision a happy finish to what has been an eventful season for the 23-yearold driver. “We’re close, we’re close,” Logano said. “What a great place to win — what a great time to win, being in Ford’s backyard.” Logano boosted his chances of reaching the Chase for the Sprint Cup, winning for the first time this season in a fuel-mileage race at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday. Logano and Kevin Harvick both breezed past Mark Martin with just over three laps to go in the 400-mile, 200-lap race. Martin had been trying to stretch fuel but when he faltered, Logano was able to hold off Harvick. The win put Logano in 13th place in the standings. He’s seven points behind Martin Truex Jr. for the second wild card. It’s been an up-and-down year for Logano. He and teammate Brad Keselowski were docked 25 points each after NASCAR inspectors confiscated parts from the rear suspensions of their cars before the April 13 race at Texas. More recently, Logano has had to recover from back-to-back 40th-place showings at Daytona and Loudon but he’s now right in the middle of a wild race for the final Chase spots.


“A roller coaster, to say the least,” Logano added. “We’ve just got to keep that momentum going. It just goes to show, as long as nothing goes wrong — knock on wood — we’ve been pretty good. We’ve had some good speed in our cars.” Everything went pretty much according to plan at Michigan. Logano won the pole Friday and took Sunday’s race by a second over Harvick, who is safely in fourth place in the standings. “I was very pleased with the day,” Harvick said. “It’s just going to come down to getting on a hot streak over 10 weeks and not making any mistakes.” There are three races left before the Chase and the jockeying for the final spots is just as muddled as it was before Sunday’s race. Keselowski, the defending champion, is still in eighth place with 667 points but Kurt Busch is now only two points behind him after a third-place showing Sunday. Greg Biffle (663) is in 10th place. Kasey Kahne (659) and Truex (653) are currently in line to be the wild cards but Logano closed a lot of ground. Points leader Jimmie Johnson lasted less than 60 laps Sunday before engine trouble knocked him out. He still has a 41-point lead over Clint Bowyer. Biffle finished ninth after winning the previous two Cup races at Michigan. His victory in June was the 1,000th for Ford Motor Company across NASCAR’s three national series — Cup, Nationwide and Truck. Biffle drives for Roush Fenway Racing. This time, it was Penske’s turn to celebrate. this season. Jeff Koz and Shawn Valenti had dominated the division with four wins each heading into the season-final event. Unfortunately for all three drivers, Jeff Babcock, the all-time leading winner in the division, was also entered and he was his usual self. See more results at www.delphosherald.com

Indiana ace Sherman finished fifth and was crowned 2013 Modified track champion for a fifth time. “Kody (Weisner) was up on the wheel all year long and I know he was trying to win this one,” said Sherman. “I was just trying to stay out of trouble and not really push the issue.


It’s awesome to win another title. We really benefit from not having failures with our equipment.” Sherman added to previous championships won in 2004 and the last three seasons.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Home is where the heart is, and it should be your main concern. Fixing up your place with the best interest of loved ones in mind will bring some much-deserved harmony. Plan a funfilled evening. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Follow your plans through with a disciplined attitude. Cut back where you can and be moderate in all that you do. Focus on positive change, not on your failures.


TUESDAY, AUGUST 20, 2013 In the coming months, reevaluate what you have been doing and the direction you are heading. It’s never too late to make changes that can improve your life and future. Being confident in who you are and what you do will bring you closer to satisfaction and peace of mind. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Get out and mingle and you’ll make some interesting contacts. You have much to learn from your experience dealing with people from different backgrounds. Talks will lead to a new way to utilize your skills. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A partnership’s success will be proportional to what you put into it. Your unique contribution to something that helps others will bring you recognition. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don’t pay much attention to what others do or say -- trust your own instincts. Taking time to observe how things unfold will be to your benefit. A bit of needed romance will improve your attitude. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Knowledge is key, and opening your mind to a variety of interesting concepts will result in positive changes. Not everyone who knows you will agree with your choices, but that’s OK. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Travel plans or a visit to someone who makes you happy will brighten your day. A personal proposal will lead to a change of plans. Prepare to make a sudden move and to roll with the punches. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Consider an alliance that will help stabilize your position or bolster your reputation. What’s offered can be beneficial if it’s tailored to the skills and knowledge that you can provide. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -You’ll face emotional deception when dealing with business or personal relationships. Ask questions if you feel you aren’t getting the whole truth. Consider making changes to accommodate your position, but stick to your principles. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you have something to offer, now’s the time to pitch it. Your innovative and inventive mind will dazzle those you encounter. Expect to be offered help or suggestions that will contribute to your success. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your indecisiveness may upset someone, but it will help you come to a conclusion that works in the end. Weigh all the pros and cons before making a commitment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your generosity will be taken advantage of by a co-worker or colleague. Step back and look at what’s required, then offer no more than necessary. Spend time with loved ones and nurture the relationships that count.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 2013 Take care of pressing money matters in the coming months. Look for innovative ways to crunch numbers and cut corners. Needed changes to your lifestyle will result in less stress and a brighter future. Love is on the horizon, with a positive change in location indicated. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Get together with people who make you think in unusual ways. Make personal improvements that help you focus on and improve what you have to offer. Don’t be afraid to step out on a limb when it comes to love. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Confusion in your emotional relationships will surface if you aren’t specific about your likes and dislikes. Communication will be key to keeping your options open and your life journey on track. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Problems getting things accomplished will hamper your ability to deliver. Don’t promise what you cannot provide, even if it means disappointing someone. Gauge your time wisely. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You’ll have the drive to get things done, but interference may stand between you and success. Alter your living space to allow you to finish projects in the

comfort of your home. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It’s a good day to engage in activities that require your talents, skills and expertise. You’ll impress someone who can boost your reputation and bring some major changes. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Take a different approach to your daily chores and you will inspire those around you to follow suit. Money will come to you from an unusual source. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Partnerships will be tense if you don’t make a concerted effort to discuss your feelings openly and honestly. You cannot improve your life if you don’t address what’s bothering you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Your unusual approach to financial and personal affairs will lead to all sorts of interesting and unique opportunities. Expect to be very busy. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Your changing mood and unpredictable nature will cause others to question your methods. Check to make sure you are being practical before it’s too late. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are in a cycle where big decisions can be made regarding how you spend your time and whom you spend it with. A move may be necessary -- don’t fear it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Take some time to shop and pamper yourself. Enjoy the company of someone special and share your plans for the future. Romance will lead to optimism. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Too much of anything will cause problems at home and at work. Discipline will be required to offset your desire to indulge physically, emotionally and financially. ** DISTRIBUTED BY UCLICK FOR UFS UNIVERSAL

A look at federal role in civil rights cases
WASHINGTON (AP) — Almost as soon as George Zimmerman was pronounced “not guilty” in a Florida courtroom, the cry went up. The U.S. government must get “justice for Trayvon,” insisted protesters angry about the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin. The call will resound again later this month through events marking the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Attorney General Eric Holder, the first black man to lead the nation’s law enforcement, says the Justice Department is investigating. Why would the feds consider stepping into a state murder case? The federal government has claimed its power of protecting civil rights against violence as far back as the Reconstruction era. Empowered by constitutional amendments and early civil rights laws passed after the Civil War, the government sought to protect newly freed blacks and their voting rights, mostly from the Ku Klux Klan. But then court decisions, the end of Reconstruction and the rise of Jim Crow laws essentially “defanged” the federal government of its power to police civil rights when state and local governments would not, said Darrell Miller, a Duke University law professor. It wasn’t until the 1960s civil rights movement — exemplified by the historic Aug. 28, 1963, march — that new laws began strengthening the federal role. Now, the Justice Department is expected to pursue civil rights prosecutions. But in many cases that inflame racial passions, federal prosecutors don’t find the evidence needed to support civil rights charges. A look at some cases through history: ——— THE CIVIL RIGHTS ERA As the burgeoning civil rights movement gathered force in the 1960s, demonstrators were brutalized and killed, sometimes at the hands of law officers. Many slayings remain unsolved. But in some cases where local authorities failed to go after the attackers or all-white juries refused to convict, the federal government moved in with civil rights charges. The strategy won federal convictions in some racist killings that had jolted the nation: —The 1964 slayings of three young civil rights workers — James Chaney, who was black, and Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, who were white — that would later inspire the movie “Mississippi Burning.” —The shooting death of Lt. Col. Lemuel Penn, a black World War II veteran, by Ku Klux Klan members as he was driving home from Army Reserve training in Georgia in 1964.

Sterling’s favorite experience during Canal Days was during the 50th-anniversary celebration. All the committee chairpersons and core group marched in the parade with a big cake that said “50 Years.” In addition, the group left 50 helium balloons go up in front of the judges stand. “Now we are on the 56th annual Canal Days,” she said full of excitement. “How time flies when you’re having fun!”

Family ties factor in key Senate races
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Sen. Mark Pryor likes to tell voters that he always puts Arkansas first, borrowing the campaign slogan associated with his family for decades. In Wyoming, Liz Cheney bets that her famous father’s name will be gold in her Senate race. And in Louisiana, Sen. Mary Landrieu counts on her kin’s New Orleans ties to help lift her to re-election in a tough race. Family does matter in the runup to next fall’s Senate elections: Candidates are wielding famous political pedigrees in a number of races that could determine whether Democrats maintain control in the 2014 elections. Famous last names mean automatic name recognition and, typically, an easier time raising money. Beyond that, and 15 months before Election Day, it’s unclear whether family ties will translate into votes next fall. For several Democrats, their deep family roots in conservative-leaning states could help them make the case that they are in touch with local values and act in constituents’ best interests as they seek to rebut Republican arguments that they are nothing more than rubber

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian police fired tear gas Sunday in an attempt to free a guard from rioting detainees, killing at least 36 as the country’s military leader vowed to tolerate no more violence after days of clashes that killed nearly 900 people. The deaths of the prisoners, captured during the fierce fighting in recent days around Cairo’s Ramses Square, came as Gen. Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi also called for the inclusion of Islamists in the government. Meanwhile, security forces detained Muslim Brotherhood members in raids aimed at stopping more planned rallies supporting ousted President Mohammed Morsi — which the military-backed government says fuels the violent unrest.

stamps for President Barack Obama’s policies. Yet, with congressional approval ratings dipping to record lows, a political pedigree also could turn into a liability if voters decide they’d rather have some new blood in the Senate. History is filled with famous political families with national images — the Kennedys, Rockefellers and Bushes are among them — and there are similar political dynasties in individual states across the nation. This year, family ties figure prominently in Arkansas, where Pryor’s father, David, served the state as governor and U.S. senator, and in Louisiana, where Landrieu’s father, Moon, was New Orleans’ mayor during the 1970s and her brother, Mitch, now leads the city. In Wyoming, former Vice President Dick Cheney’s eldest daughter has galvanized the state’s political scene by seeking the seat of Sen. Mike Enzi, a Republican favored by his party’s establishment. In the cases of Pryor and Landrieu, Republicans say voters are savvy enough to judge sitting senators on their performance rather than their pedigree.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) — As the U.S. renews its effort to close the Guantanamo Bay prison, it will soon begin reconsidering the fate of prisoners such as Mohammed al-Shimrani. The 38-year-old Saudi is in a special category among the 166 prisoners at Guantanamo — one of nearly 50 men who a government task force decided were too dangerous to release but who can’t be prosecuted, in some cases, because proceedings could reveal sensitive information. While the rest of the prisoners have been cleared for eventual release, transfer or prosecution, al-Shimrani and the others can only guess at their fate. “The allegations against my client are no more serious than many, many Saudis who have been sent home,” New Yorkbased attorney Martha Rayner said of al-Shimrani. “It just baffles me.” The Pentagon says the men in the indefinite detention category are held under international laws of war until the “end of hostilities,” whenever that may be. As a group, they are one of the chief hurdles to President Barack Obama’s attempts to close the detention center on the U.S. base in Cuba. For the most part, they have been accused of being al-Qaida and Taliban fighters, couriers and recruiters. After more than a decade, their lawyers say it’s time to let them go. Their lawyers recently began receiving notifications that intelligence officials from “various U.S. government agencies” would begin reviewing the detention of their clients to determine whether it was still necessary to hold them. A Defense Department spokesman, Army Lt. Col. Joseph Todd Breasseale, said the date for the first hearing hasn’t been set. Details of how the panels will be conducted, whether, for example, lawyers for the men will be allowed to be present or can only appear by videoconference, have not been disclosed. Rayner, a professor at Fordham University School of Law in New York, said she is hopeful because her client has family to receive him back in Saudi Arabia, and a government capable of providing any security assurances the U.S. might need. “I am going into this with an open mind,” she said. Many who have long pushed for the closure of the prison say the U.S. needs to act fast because the legal premise for their indefinite detention will evaporate when the U.S. pulls its troops out of Afghanistan in 2014, effectively ending the war that prompted the opening of Guantanamo in January 2002.

Some of Guantanamo’s hardest cases to get new look

States revisiting mandatory sentences for juveniles
SUFFIELD, Conn. (AP) — When Nicholas Aponte recalls the night in 1995 that sent him to prison, he describes an immature 17-year-old who told himself he was tough but in reality lacked the nerve to say no to a cousin he admired for being a troublemaker. Sitting with a group of boys on a porch, playing cards and drinking, the cousin said he needed to “do a robbery” and asked if Aponte wanted to tag along. “I said, ‘OK, we’ll do the robbery or whatever,’” Aponte said. “It was spur of the moment.” The plan failed. A 28-year-old sandwich shop assistant manager was killed during the robbery. Aponte was later arrested, as was his cousin, younger brother and a friend. Even though Aponte didn’t fire the gun, prosecutors considered him the ringleader. He was treated by the courts as an adult and sentenced to 38 years without parole. That means he will be 55 when he’s freed. “All this time was hard to perceive, for somebody so young,” Aponte said in a prison interview this week. Now 35, with more than half his life spent in Connecticut prisons, Aponte dreams of finishing his bachelor’s degree, becoming a nurse and spending time with his family, including a son who was an infant when he was imprisoned. Aponte is among an estimated 2,100 so-called juvenile lifers across the country — inmates sentenced to lengthy prison terms without parole — who hope for a reprieve in the wake of a 2012 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Miller v. Alabama. The decision determined such sentences are cruel and unusual punishment and therefore unconstitutional. The court ruled, 5-4, that the proportionality of the sentence must take into account “the mitigating qualities of youth,” such as immaturity and the failure of young people to understand the ramifications of their actions. In part to head off an avalanche of expected appeals, at least 10 states have changed laws to comply with the ruling. In June, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell signed a bill eliminating mandatory life sentences without parole for juvenile killers, who are also ineligible for the death penalty. The new law requires juveniles convicted of first-degree murder to serve at least 25 years in prison while still allowing judges the discretion to impose a sentence

NYPD faces prospect of 2 new, separate watchdogs
NEW YORK (AP) — After years of burnishing a reputation as one of the nation’s most potent police forces, the New York Police Department appears poised to become one of the most closely monitored. A federal judge this week said the department made thousands of racially discriminatory street stops and appointed a monitor to direct changes. And city lawmakers are readying for a final vote Thursday on creating an inspector general for the NYPD and widening the legal path for pursuing claims of police bias. It’s a one-two punch of outside tinkering that will muddy police work, a pair of complementary steps to protect civil rights or a rash of policymaking that may end up meaning little on the street, depending on who gets asked. But from any perspective, it would be the onset of a new era of oversight for the country’s biggest police department, though the impacts would be defined by particulars and politics still in play. The federal ruling outlines but doesn’t always detail reforms, and the city plans to

Prosecutors getting to motive
FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The prosecutors pursuing the death penalty against the Army psychiatrist accused in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage will soon begin trying to answer a difficult but key question: Why did Maj. Nidal Hasan attack his fellow soldiers in the worst mass shooting ever on a U.S. military base? Both sides offered a few hints so far. Although he’s been mostly silent in the courtroom, Hasan used his brief opening statement to tell jurors he had “switched sides” in what he called America’s war with Islam and he later leaked documents to the media showing he believed he could be a martyr. Military prosecutors opened the trial by saying they would show that Hasan felt he had a “jihad duty,” referring to a Muslim term

of life without parole. Juvenile offenders convicted of first-degree murder are also allowed to petition for a sentence modification after serving 30 years. Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead signed a bill in February specifying that juveniles convicted of murder would be eligible for parole after serving 25 years in prison. Last fall, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett signed legislation giving judges options other than life in prison when sentencing juveniles in murder cases. Other states with new juvenile sentencing laws include Arkansas, California, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Dakota and Utah, according to data collected by the National Conference of State Legislatures this summer. In Connecticut, where Aponte is among about 200 inmates who could be affected by the high court’s ruling, a proposal that would have allowed parole hearings for teen offenders who’ve served at least 12 years or 60 percent of their sentence died this year. There are plans to resurrect the bill next year. But the prospect of possibly shortening sentences has been met with mixed reaction from relatives of crime victims.

appeal it. The City Council, if it succeeds in overriding a mayoral veto, would establish a monitor but not select the person or specify exactly what gets investigated. And a new mayor will take office next year, which could well mean new police leadership. “The complexity, at this point, is that there are so many moving parts,” said John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor Eugene O’Donnell, who isn’t involved in the litigation or legislation. “And it doesn’t help that it became very adversarial.” Some other police forces, including the Los Angeles Police Department, also have had both court monitoring and an inspector general. The NYPD was under a 1980s federal consent decree that involved undercover and surveillance techniques, but this would be an unprecedented level of outside scrutiny for the agency. Advocates see distinct roles for each of the prospective new NYPD watchdogs, who would have different scopes and powers. They wouldn’t directly intersect, deriving their authority from different parts of government.

for a religious war or struggle. After calling almost 80 witnesses over two weeks, prosecutors said Friday they would begin tackling the question this week. How much they can say to jurors, however, may be limited by the judge. Even though plenty of information about Hasan’s extremist views has been published outside the courtroom since the rampage, the 13 military officers on the jury said they had not closely followed the case and wouldn’t read news coverage during the trial. Prosecutors asked the military judge, Col. Tara Osborn, on Friday to approve evidence and several witnesses to explain Hasan’s mindset. Such evidence includes references to Hasan Akbar, a Muslim soldier sentenced to death for attacking fellow soldiers in Kuwait during the 2003 Iraq invasion.
