Missouri nonprofit worries
big gift was a mistake
Officials at a southwest Missouri nonprofit say a large cash
gift may have been made by mistake, and they hope to find the
possibly unwitting donor. Selfless Blessings Inc. serves people
in need in Taney County. The organization says a volunteer
came across the cash while sorting donated items at its store-
front location in Hollister. The amount of money hasn’t been
revealed, but it was enough to raise concern. Selfless Bless-
ings’ founder, Andrea Berdine, said in a news release Friday
the organization wants to be sure the cash wasn’t someone’s
personal savings that got donated by mistake.
The group says anyone wanting to claim the cash has
59 days to do so and must be able to provide certain iden-

14 openings available
for 2 month class
By Kris Hilgedick
Local economic development lead-
ers are hoping an expedited welding
program might offer new opportuni-
ties for employees losing their jobs at
enterprises like RR Donnelley and the
Chamois Power Plant.
Three entities — Linn State Tech-
nical College, Nichols Career Center
and the Jefferson City Area Chamber
of Commerce — have teamed up to
offer the Technical Welding Course.
The program has 14 openings, ini-
tially, with the possibility for a second
same-size class if enough interest is
piqued. A registration day hasn’t been
announced yet, but the program is
scheduled to start on Oct. 21 and
conclude by Dec. 20.
The cost for the eight-week course
is $3,100. However, qualified par-
ticipants may be eligible for fund-
ing assistance through the Missouri
Although not for college credit,
the customized course will offer 96
hours of welding training. Classes will
be held for three hours, four nights a
week, at Nichols. At the end, partici-
pants will test for an American Weld-
ing Society certification.
Kenny Thomas and Eric Radm-
acher, welding instructors at Nichols
Career Center and Linn State respec-
tively, will co-teach the course.
“We’re going to try to incorpo-
rate industry involvement into the
class,” said Shelle Jacobs, business
and industry coordinator at Linn
State. “We’re going to reach out to
the local companies, in hopes they
will serve as guest speakers, conduct
mock interviews and offer tours of

BOSTON (AP) — Some students
toted lunchboxes to the first day of
school in Boston this week, but dis-
trict administrators are expecting that
could become a more unusual sight
as parents learn about a federal pro-
gram that is now providing all public
school students in the city with free
breakfast and lunch.
The nation’s oldest school sys-
tem has joined a program of the U.S.
Department of Agriculture that has
spread to 10 states and the District
of Columbia that offers students two
free meals every school day, whether
or not their families can afford them.
“It’s one less weight and one less
burden for parents,” said Joshua
Rivera, whose son is a second-grader
at the Maurice J. Tobin School in
Boston’s Roxbury section.
And, officials say, serving more
kids actually saves them money.
Known as Community Eligibil-
ity Option, the program is part of the
Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010
that authorized $4.5 billion in new
For schools to qualify, federal
officials said, more than 40 percent
of students have to be getting food
stamps or aid through certain other
federal assistance programs.
Besides easing hunger, school offi-
cials said, the program helps erase a
stigma that plagued some students
from poor families.
Boston joins schools in Michigan,
Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and else-
where in a program that will be avail-
able across the country starting in the
2014-2015 school year.
Efrain Toledano, principal of the
Tobin School, said he expects the
program will cut down on potential
disruptions at the K-8 school by eas-
ing hunger pangs that could be linked
to classroom misbehavior.

As the politically connected owners

politicians and even hired their own

The husband and wife are on a
behind-the-scenes mission to pass leg-
islation that would remove hundreds
of people convicted of sex crimes as
juveniles from the state’s online listing
of registered sex offenders. Their cause
is intensely personal, because their son
is among those whose name, photo and
address would come down from law
Their persistent, methodical efforts
have set up a political showdown that
would have seemed implausible just a
few years ago, when the Republican-led
Legislature was heaping new restric-
tions on sex offenders that barred them
from coaching youth sports, coming
near playgrounds and swimming pools
or even passing out candy on Hallow-
“Certainly, I’ve used whatever access
or influence that I’ve gotten,” Rand, the
president of Discount Smoke Shop Inc.,
said in a recent interview. He added:
“Anybody on the registry is a target for
people who like to hurt other people.”
In May, the Legislature overwhelm-
ingly passed a bill that would strike
juvenile offenders from public-notifica-
tion websites and eventually allow their
removal from the sex-offender lists
compiled by police.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed the
bill earlier this summer, warning it
could endanger the public by hiding
the whereabouts of violent sex offend-
ers. But the battle is not over. Missouri
lawmakers are to convene Wednesday
to consider overriding the veto.
The juvenile sex offender legisla-
tion originally passed the House 153-0
and the Senate 28-4. As recently as last
month, House Speaker Tim Jones said
the bill seemed “ripe for an override.”
But as Nixon has traveled the state
defending his veto, some lawmakers
began having second thoughts about
their support for the bill and the poten-
tial ramifications of an override.
Senate Majority Leader Ron Richard
said he’s not pressing for an override
and is no longer sure whether he would

NEW YORK (AP) — Christina Agu-
ilera recently debuted her slimmed-
down body, but the singer says she
doesn’t work out like crazy.
The 32-year-old is on the cover
of Maxim magazine’s October issue.
She’s sporting a bra and a big shirt in
the cover photo and a fitted dress in
the magazine spread.
In a phone interview Thursday, Agu-
ilera says her daily routine includes
working out — on some days.
Says Aguilera: “If I can squeeze in a
workout, great. If not, that’s OK, too.”
The Grammy winner adds that her
5-year-old son, Max, is also keeping
her in shape: “Running around with
him all day is pretty good exercise.”
ALFRED, Maine (AP) — Maine pros-
ecutors have dropped a drunk-driving
charge against actress Sally Struthers
under an agreement in which she
pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.
Struthers didn’t have to appear in
court in Alfred last week when her
plea was entered to a charge of driv-
ing to endanger. The Portland Press
Herald reports she was ordered to pay
$1,210 in fines and fees, and her driver’s
license was suspended for a month.
The 66-year-old Struthers is best
known for her role as Gloria Stivic in
the 1970s TV sitcom “All in the Family.”
Police arrested her on Sept. 12, 2012,
in the resort town of Ogunquit where
she was performing at the Ogunquit
Playhouse in the musical “9 to 5.”
Struthers’ attorney didn’t immedi-
ately return a phone message Thurs-
NEW YORK (AP) — Katy Perry says
although she’s “older and wiser,” she
still plans to have fun.
Perry debuted 12 songs from her
new album, “Prism,” to be released Oct.
22, in front of an audience of 100 indus-
try insiders and journalists Thursday
night in New York. The beat-driven
album features likable, radio-friendly
tracks, much like her multi-hit 2010
effort, “Teenage Dream.”
The 28-year-old pop star played
songs like the ’80s-inspired “Birth-
day,” which she called “something
like Mariah Carey would have put on
her first album.” She said “Uncondi-
tionally” was her favorite song and
she was proud to have written it.

Juicy J, sounds like a Southern rap-

From The Associated Press
SEX OFFENDERS: The owners of several
tobacco stores have contributed thousands
of dollars to Missouri politicians and even
hired their own lobbyist. But the cause they
are pushing this year has nothing to do with
cigarettes. They’re the driving force behind
legislation that would remove hundreds of
people who committed sex crimes as juve-
niles from an online listing of registered sex
offenders. Next week, Missouri lawmakers
will decide whether to override a guberna-
torial veto of the bill.
TAX CREDITS: State officials say a mar-
ket shift is behind the recent decline in
real-estate related tax credits redeemed
by Missouri businesses and individuals.
The state Revenue Department reports
a $103 million overall annual decline in
tax credits cashed in the fiscal year that
ended in June. That includes a $55 million
plunge in the historic preservation tax
credit and another $20 million drop in the
low-income housing credit.
CONGRESS SYRIA: Suggesting an uphill
fight for President Barack Obama, House
members staking out positions are either
opposed to or leaning against his plan for a
U.S. military strike against Syria by nearly a
6-to-1 margin, a survey by The Associated
Press shows. The Senate is more evenly
divided ahead of its vote next week. Still,
the situation is very fluid. About half of the
433-member House and a third of the 100-
member Senate remain undecided.
ECONOMY: Employers are sketching a
hazy picture of the U.S. job market for the
Federal Reserve to weigh in deciding this
month whether to reduce its stimulus for
the economy — and, if so, by how much.
The economy added 169,000 jobs in
August but many fewer in June and July
than previously thought. The unemploy-
ment rate fell to 7.3 percent, the low-
est since 2008, but only because more
people stopped looking for work and were
no longer counted as unemployed.
DEATH ROW: An Arizona woman who
spent more than two decades on death
row was released on bond after a judge
ruled there’s no direct evidence linking her
to the death of her young son. Debra Milke
walked out of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s
jail after supporters posted $250,000 bond.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned
her conviction in March.
G20 SYRIA: Beset by divisions at home
and abroad, President Barack Obama
candidly acknowledges the challenges
he faces in winning support for military
strikes against Syria from foreign allies,
Congress and the American people. He
refuses to say whether he would launch
a strike without lawmakers’ approval.
Russian President Vladimir Putin says
Obama must go through the U.N., though
Russia has blocked action there.

Although skilled laborers
are in demand, said Thomas,
the work can be challenging.
Welders need good hand-eye
coordination and are often
exposed to excessively hot and
cold working conditions.
But it’s not just a career
path for men, said many of the
organizers planning the pro-
gram. Because the work is rep-
etitious, detail-oriented and
requires precision, women are
reputed to excel at the task.
“Females make great weld-
ers,” Thomas said.
For Thomas, who already
teaches all day, adding the
night class means a lengthy
work day for him, but he’s
happy to do it.

skilled labor force is dying off,”

Rand has long been a major
political donor. During the
past four years alone, Missouri
legislative candidates received
more than $100,000 from
Rand, Keil and their business-
es. During that same time, they
contributed about $50,000 to
Nixon, a Democrat.
Many of those contributions
came as Rand campaigned
against a 2012 ballot initiative
to raise tobacco taxes.
Rand’s lobbyist, Neal Eng-
lish, estimated that fewer
than one-third of the lawmak-
ers who got donations from
Rand knew he also was back-
ing changes to the state’s sex
At least initially, Keil said,
she tried to talk to lawmak-
ers herself about the need to
revise sex-offender laws, but
she seldom made it past recep-
tionists. So they hired profes-
sional lobbyists. Missouri Eth-
ics Commission records show
Keil contributed $12,500 to
Missouri Citizens for Reform
in November 2010. A month
later, the committee paid the
same amount to the lobbying
firm for which English works.
Soon, Keil and Rand were
seeing progress. The House
passed measures in both 2011
and 2012 that would have
exempted some crimes from
the registry requirements, but
the bills died in the Senate.
The bill that passed this
year would remove 858 of the
13,581 people currently listed
on the Missouri State Highway
Patrol’s sex-offender website,
the patrol said.
Keil and Rand’s son pleaded
guilty to aggravated criminal
sexual abuse in Illinois for an
incident that occurred in June
1998. He was age 17 at the
time, and the girl was 12. They
say their son, and others like
him, deserve a shot at a nor-
mal life without the spotlight
of a permanent listing on sex-
“This bill doesn’t affect pun-
ishment at all,” Keil said. “What
it affects is the ability for young
people to get a second chance
and have an opportunity to go
to school and get jobs.”
English, a former Senate
staffer, said the legislation
may be about a dozen House
votes short of the two-thirds
majority needed for a veto
override. The prospects in the
Senate are also in doubt. But
the lobbying campaign con-
tinues, and the vote projec-
tions change daily.
“It’s kind of a politically sen-
sitive issue,” English acknowl-
edged. “We had to get the Leg-
islature comfortable with the

quences are outweighing the

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sug-
gesting an uphill fight for Presi-
dent Barack Obama, House
members staking out positions
are either opposed to or leaning
against his plan for a U.S. mili-
tary strike against Syria by more
than a 6-1 margin, a survey by
The Associated Press shows. The
Senate is more evenly divided
ahead of its vote next week.
Still, the situation is very
fluid. Nearly half of the 433-
member House and a third
of the 100-member Senate
By their statements or those
of aides, only 30 members of
the Republican-led House sup-
port intervention or are lean-
ing in favor of authorizing the
president to use force against
Syrian President Bashar Assad’s
government in response to
a chemical weapons attack
last month. Some 192 House
members outright oppose U.S.
involvement or are leaning
against authorization, accord-
ing to the AP survey.
The situation in the Demo-
crat-controlled Senate is bet-
ter for Obama but hardly con-
clusive ahead of a potential
vote next week. The AP survey
showed those who support or
are leaning in favor of military
action holding a slight 34-32
advantage over those opposed
or leaning against it.
Complicating the effort
in the Senate is the possibil-
ity that a three-fifths majority
may be required. Republican
Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky
says he is going to filibuster.
Still, Sen. Harry Reid, the
Democratic leader, predicted,
“I think we’re going to get 60
Speaking to reporters Friday
after a summit of world leaders
in St. Petersburg, Russia, Obama
acknowledged the difficulties
he faces in seeking support for
action. He said he would address
the nation on Tuesday.
“It’s conceivable at the end
of the day I don’t persuade a
majority of the American people
that it’s the right thing to do,”
Obama said. But the president,
who again would not say what
he would do if Congress rebuffed
him, expressed confidence that
the people and their lawmakers
would listen to his case.
“Failing to respond,” he said,
“would send a signal to rogue
nations, authoritarian regimes
and terrorist organizations
that they can develop and use
weapons of mass destruction
and not pay a consequence.”
Whatever Obama might
decide, a rejection from Con-
gress would have wide-rang-
ing ramifications in the United
States and abroad.
If the administration
goes ahead with cruise mis-
sile strikes and other limited
action against Syrian targets,
it could risk a constitutional
crisis with angry lawmakers
ahead of other confrontations
over raising the U.S. debt ceil-
ing, funding the government,
overhauling immigration law
and implementing Obama’s
signature health care changes.
The alternative — that is,
stepping back after weeks of
war-like threats — could proj-
ect weakness to an Ameri-
can foe that the U.S. says has
repeatedly launched chemical
weapons attacks. It also could
send a signal to both allies and
American enemies that the
U.S. is too divided internally to
back up its declarations with
actions over everything from
preventing Iran from develop-
ing nuclear weapons to con-
taining the threat posed by
North Korea’s erratic, nuclear-
How difficult is Obama’s
challenge in Congress? Only 21
House members publicly back
a resolution to attack Syria,
and nine say they are consider-
ing giving their support. Some
100 House members oppose
Obama’s plan, and 92 say they
are leaning against it.
Opposition runs deep
among Republicans and Dem-
ocrats. So far, GOP lawmak-
ers stand 148-9 against mili-
tary action, when accounting
for leaners. Democrats are
opposed by a tally of 44-21.
For Obama to succeed, he’ll
have to win about 90 percent of
the undecided House members
— or change the minds of those
who are leaning against him.
Rep. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y.,
has already changed his mind,
but not in Obama’s favor.
“My initial reaction, as a
Marine combat veteran, was
to stand by the commander in
chief and support immediate,
targeted strikes,” Grimm said.
But since then, he said, he has
heard from many constituents
“who strongly oppose unilateral
action at a time when we have
so many needs here at home.”
He now believes the benefits
of a U.S. strike won’t outweigh
“the extreme cost of war.”
After a decade of war in
Afghanistan and Iraq, polls
have shown Americans consis-
tently oppose intervention in
Syria, a fact Obama acknowl-
edged after meeting fellow
leaders of the leading rich and
developing nations Friday. He
compared the current situa-
tion to previous crises when
America had to engage for the
good of the world.
“These kinds of interven-
tions, these kinds of actions are
always unpopular because they
seem distant and removed,”
Obama said. “I’m not drawing
an analogy to World War II,
other than to say, you know,
when London was getting
bombed, it was profoundly
unpopular, both in Congress
and around the country, to
help the British.”
“The intervention in Koso-
vo, very unpopular, but ulti-
mately I think it was the right
thing to do and the interna-
tional community should be
glad that it came together to
do it,” he added. “When people
say that it is a terrible stain on
all of us that hundreds of thou-
sands of people were slaugh-
tered in Rwanda, well, imagine
if Rwanda was going on right
now and we asked should we
intervene in Rwanda. I think
it’s fair to say that it probably
wouldn’t poll real well.”
Obama has support among
House leaders of both parties.
Speaker John Boehner, R-
Ohio, Majority Leader Eric Can-
tor, R-Va., and House Demo-
cratic leaders Nancy Pelosi of
California and Steny Hoyer of
Maryland are on board. But
many rank-and-file members
of both parties either oppose
attacking Syria or are sitting on
the sidelines until they learn
more about the administra-
tion’s plans and see which way
the political momentum turns.
There is still plenty of
time for the administration
to convince House members
who are undecided or who’ve
publicly expressed skepticism
about military engagement.
Reluctant lawmakers are often
swayed during closed-door
meetings with colleagues and
party leaders. Just a third of the
House and Senate have partic-
ipated in any of the classified
briefings with administration
officials over the past week,
underscoring that their votes
may still be winnable.
All House members are
invited to a classified briefing
on Monday night, after Con-
gress officially returns from
summer break. House Demo-
crats will meet Tuesday morn-
ing with White House Chief of
Staff Denis McDonough, and
House Republicans will meet
separately at the same time.
In the Senate, Republicans
and Democrats will hold their
weekly policy luncheons on
Tuesday, a day before a likely
vote to move forward on a res-
olution authorizing force.

administration has a more dif-

ST. LOUIS (AP) — State
officials say a market shift is
behind the recent decline in
real estate-related tax credits
redeemed by Missouri busi-
nesses and individuals.
The state Revenue Depart-
ment this week reported a $103
million overall annual decline
in tax credits cashed in the
fiscal year that ended on June
30. That includes a $55 million
plunge in the historic preser-
vation tax credit and another
$20 million drop in the low-
income housing credit.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch
reported Friday that tax credits
under Missouri’s Quality Jobs tax
credit grew by $5 million in that
same period and have nearly tri-
pled since 2010. Overall, $512.9
million worth of tax credits were
redeemed in the 12 months end-
ing June 30, a drop of more than
25 percent from the previous
year’s record redemptions.
The redemptions represent
money actually paid out by the
state after a firm gets initial tax
credit approval and then com-
plies with the legal requirements.
The Missouri Department
of Economic Development
called the recent changes in tax
credit use “a direct reflection of
the state’s economic activity.”
The market shifts also jibe with
the priorities of Gov. Jay Nixon
and some Senate Republicans,
who have pushed to tighten
the costly historic and low-
income housing programs and
focus efforts on credits that
directly reward job creation.
Missouri has more than 60
tax credits covering programs
from wineries to wood fuel
pellet production, but the bulk
of the half-billion-dollar cost
comes from a few programs.
The historic program reim-
burses one-fourth the cost of
renovating old buildings and
has been a boon for St. Louis,
where the housing market
continues to adjust.
“Historics being low repre-
sents when the market fell off
during the recession,” state tax
policy analyst Brian Schmidt
said. “It takes two to five years
for a project to go from (initial)
authorization to credits being
redeemed, you’re seeing the
effect of the downturn now.”

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A
Boston-area teenager charged
with the broomstick rape of a
younger teen at a sports camp
was released on $100,000 bail Fri-
day and told to avoid the alleged
victims and witnesses in his case.
Prosecutors say 17-year-old
Galileo Mondol is one of three
Somerville High School soccer
players charged in connection
with the alleged assault Aug. 25
in a cabin at Camp Lenox in Otis,
which the school had rented.
Prosecutors say Mondol
and the other teens raped one
freshman with a broom and
tried to rape two others. Mon-
dol has pleaded not guilty.
The names of the other sus-
pects have not been released
because they are 16.
Earlier Friday at a hear-
ing in Pittsfield, Judge Fredric
Rutberg granted Mondol bail,
saying he isn’t a public dan-
ger. The judge also set release
conditions including a curfew
and GPS monitoring.
Mondol’s lawyer, William
Korman, says his client had
nothing to do with the alleged
rape and shouldn’t have been
subjected to the dangerous-
ness hearing. He called the evi-
dence against Mondol thin.
Prosecutor Rachel Eramo
argued Mondol should be held
because of his “cruel conduct,”
including carrying out the crimes
in a crowded room and warning
those present not to talk.
She said witness accounts
vary slightly, and that the rape
victim said Mondol wasn’t phys-
ically involved in attacking him.
Eramo said only one vic-
tim who was assaulted but not
raped told investigators Mon-
dol helped another defendant
physically rape the victim with
a broomstick. She said others
said Mondol was present and
encouraged the abuse.

Sizing up retail sales
New data on retail sales should shed
light on how consumer spending
fared in the back-to-school shopping
Economists anticipate that the
Commerce Department will report on
Friday that retail sales improved
slightly last month versus July. Many
retailers have reported modest gains
for August as shoppers spent
cautiously on clothing. That raises
questions about whether Americans
will spend during the winter holidays.
Imports getting pricier?
Economists expect that a new
report will show a slight uptick in
the price paid by U.S. importers
Import prices increased 0.2 per-
cent in July. That followed
monthly declines going back to
March. Falling oil imports earlier
this year contributed to the decline
in import prices. Oil prices have
been rising and supply has
declined, which could stoke
demand for oil imports. The Labor
Department reports August import
price data on Thursday.
Americans are taking on more
debt to buy cars and go to college.
Consumers increased their bor-
rowing $13.8 billion in June from
May to a seasonally adjusted
$2.85 trillion, the highest level
ever. The category that includes
credit card debt fell in June,
reflecting how many consumers
remain wary of taking on high-
interest debt. The Federal Re-
serve reports its latest tally of con-
sumer borrowing on Monday.

Muddled US jobs picture
to weigh on Fed decision
WASHINGTON (AP) —
Employers are sketching a hazy
picture of the U.S. job mar-
ket for the Federal Reserve to
weigh in deciding this month
whether to reduce its stimulus
for the economy — and, if so,
by how much.
The economy added 169,000
jobs in August but many fewer
in June and July than previously
thought. The unemployment
rate fell to 7.3 percent, the low-
est since 2008, but only because
more people stopped looking
for work and were no longer
counted as unemployed.
All told, Friday’s report from
the Labor Department pointed
to a lukewarm job market: Hir-
ing is steady but subpar. Much
of the growth is in lower-pay-
ing occupations. And many
people are giving up on their
job searches in frustration. The
proportion of Americans work-
ing or looking for work reached
its lowest point in 35 years.
The sluggish jobs report
reflects a U.S. economy that’s
still struggling to accelerate.
The economy grew at a modest
2.5 percent annual rate from
April through June, and most
analysts think it’s weakened
The Fed has been buying
$85 billion a month in Treasury
and mortgage bonds to try to
keep home-loan and other bor-
rowing rates low. Many econo-
mists have expected the cen-
tral bank to taper its monthly
purchases after it meets Sept.
17 and 18. Friday’s data may
lead the Fed to slow its bond
buying more gradually than it
might have otherwise.
“Soft employment gains
only muddied the waters,” said
James Marple, an economist
at TD Economics. “While the
data did not take September
tapering off the table, it does
suggest that the Fed will use a
Marple and some other
economists say they now think
the Fed may announce this
month that it’s trimming its
bond purchases by $10 billion
rather than earlier expecta-
tions of $20 billion.
J&J recalls Infant Motrin
because of plastic specks
WASHINGTON (AP) — Johnson & Johnson
is recalling 200,000 bottles of Motrin Infants
formula due to the risk that they contain tiny
J&J’s McNeil unit said Friday that the recall
affects three lots of its popular Motrin Infants’
Drops Original Berry Flavor, which is used to
lower fever and treat aches and pains in children
2 years old and younger. The company warned
that the medicine may be contaminated with
specs of PTFE, a plastic also used in Teflon coat-
ings. No illnesses or injuries have been reported
to date, according to the company.
McNeil says it’s unclear if the recalled bot-
tles actually contain the particles, which were
found in a different product during the manu-
facturing process. The company decided to
issue the recall because both products contain
the same shipment of ibuprofen from a third-
party supplier. Ibuprofen is a common pain
reliever and fever reducer, also used in Advil.
“From our perspective, during the manufac-
turing process at the third party supplier, that’s
when the particles got into the ibuprofen,” said
McNeil Vice President Ed Kuffner, in an interview
with the Associated Press. Kuffner declined to
identify the supplier that made the ibuprofen.
The recalled half-ounce bottles can be
identified by their lot numbers: DCB3T01,
DDB4R01 and DDB4S01
McNeil is asking retailers to take the affected
products off store shelves. Consumers should
stop using the affected medicine and call the
company for a refund at 877-414-7709.
The recalled Motrin was manufactured
at the company’s plant in Beerse, Belgium.
McNeil’s primary manufacturing plant in Fort
Washington, Pa., has been closed since the
spring of 2010 after a string of recalls involv-
ing brands like Tylenol, Motrin and Zyrtec.
That included the recall of more than 136
million children and infant over-the-counter
medicines in April 2010, the largest recall of

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2013 A5
WASHINGTON (AP) — The govern-
ment is aware of no credible or specific
information that points to any terror plot
tied to the anniversary of the September
2001 attacks, according to a new confi-
dential threat assessment from the FBI
and Homeland Security Department
obtained by the Associated Press.
The new assessment, dated Thursday,
said that intelligence agencies remain
concerned that al-Qaida and its affiliates
are committed to carrying out attacks on
Western targets. But it said there was no
information pointing to any known plot.
The bulletin made no mention of Syria,
even as President Barack Obama sought
congressional approval to use military
force against the Syrian government.
Four Americans were killed in an attack
on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya,
on last year’s anniversary. Three others
were killed and more than 260 others
were injured when two men set off bombs
near the finish line of the popular Boston
Marathon in April. There was no spe-
cific or credible intelligence about those
The terror threat to the U.S. is different
than it was 12 years ago. In 2001, there was
credible intelligence about a terror plot,
but that information wasn’t shared with
the right people. Today, the threat is more
diffuse. Cyberattacks threaten to disrupt
major U.S. operations in the government
and the private sector. Lone actors repre-
sent another threat — one or two people
who are not directly affiliated with al-
Qaida but who subscribe to the terror
group’s ideology and want to strike out
because they disagree with U.S. policies.
Today, officials are concerned about
retaliatory strikes if Obama moves forward
with plans to use military force against
Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime,
which the administration condemns for
the death of 1,429 in a chemical weapons
attack on Aug. 21 near Damascus. Assad’s
government blames the episode on rebels
who have been seeking to overthrow his
government. Iraqi officials and militant
groups have said that Iranian-backed Shi-
ite militias are threatening to retaliate
against American interests inside Iraq if
the U.S. goes ahead with strikes, as Tehran
is a close ally of Assad.
The FBI has been reviewing old case
files involving Hezbollah and Iran’s Quds
Force, reaching out to its sources to see
whether they know anything new, a law
enforcement official said. The official
offered few details about the outreach and
spoke on condition of anonymity because
the official did not want to publicize the
bureau’s investigative strategies.
In its intelligence bulletin, the FBI and
Homeland Security Department remind-
ed law enforcement of activity that could
indicate a planning for an attack, such as
surveillance and questions about secu-
rity operations. They also provided tips to
avoid Internet denial of service attacks,
such as a warning Aug. 27 from a Tunisian
hacker group. The group, called “Tunisian
— Hackers II” threatened a 10-day denial
of service attack against U.S. banks start-
ing Sept. 1. By Sept. 5, law enforcement
had seen no evidence that the hacker
group carried through with the plan, the
Lee Hamilton, the former Democrat-
ic congressman from Indiana who co-
chaired the 9/11 Commission report, said
Americans should be reassured to know
there is no credible or specific informa-
tion about a terror attack tied to the 9/11
anniversary next week. But today’s threats
are so difficult to detect because they’re
often unknown to law enforcement.
“The threat has become more spread
out, more difficult, more means could be
used,” said Hamilton, who currently co-
heads the Washington-based Bipartisan
Policy Center, which plans to release a
report Monday on the terror threats to the
U.S. “Identifying particular individuals
who might turn violent is very, very hard
to do. It’s a big country — lots of people
out there, and it’s a huge challenge to law
And it’s difficult to get specific intel-
ligence that an attack will happen at a
certain date and time, Hamilton said.
“It’s one thing to intercept intelligence
which enables you to stop a big attack,
which we’ve been successful at doing over
the years,” he said. “It’s quite another to
identify every lone wolf, every solitary
FBI, DHS: No specific threat on 9/11 anniversary
while in stroller
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) —
Two men were arrested Friday
in northeastern Pennsylvania
in connection with the death
of a NYC toddler shot in his
stroller last weekend.
Daquan Breland, 23, and
Daquan Wright, 19, waived
extradition at a hearing and
were being taken back to New
York, the Citizens’ Voice in Wil-
The men were taken into
custody about 6 a.m. Friday at
an apartment complex in Wil-
kes-Barre, said Martin Pane,
U.S. marshal for the Middle
District of Pennsylvania.
Authorities had been seek-
ing the New York City men for
questioning in Sunday’s death
of 1-year-old Antiq Hennis in
Authorities say the boy’s
father was pushing him in a
stroller while crossing a street in
the Brownsville neighborhood
of Brooklyn on Sunday evening
when multiple shots were fired.
The child was struck on the left
side of his face and later pro-
nounced dead at a hospital.
Police believe the child’s
father, Anthony Hennis, 21, was
the intended target, and the gun-
fire may have been gang-related.
Hennis had just picked up
Antiq at the home of the baby’s
mother, Cherise Miller, to take
him to visit Hennis’ grand-
mother, police said. Hennis
put the boy in the stroller and
was pushing him across the
street when four shots were
fired, police said.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg
called the killing “a tragedy
for (the child’s) family, for this
community, for the entire city.”
Both men were arraigned
as fugitives in Pennsylvania.
Wright then waived extradition
in Pennsylvania on a weap-
ons charge and Breland on a
parole violation, the newspa-
The killing was at least the
second case of a toddler being
shot to death in a stroller this
year. In March, a woman walk-
ing home from a post office in
Brunswick, Ga., with her 13-
month-old son was accosted
by a gunman who demanded
her purse and then shot her in
the leg and fired a shot at the
child in his stroller, killing him,

missioner Raymond Kelly said
the motive for the shooting is
Witnesses have said the
men were standing in the street
when Wright handed the gun

2 arrested in connection with NYC toddler’s death
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) —
Human remains found in the
rafters of a garage are likely
that of a toddler last seen
about three months ago inside
a house on the same property,
police said Friday.
Investigators said they
found the remains Thursday
inside a box that was behind
other containers and piles of
trash in the detached garage.
An autopsy conducted Fri-
day was inconclusive, and DNA
tests will be needed to deter-
mine if the remains are of 19-
month-old Elaina Steinfurth, a
county coroner said. Investi-
gators, though, were confident
that what they feared was true.
“We found what we believe
may be baby Elaina,” said Tole-
do Police Chief Derrick Diggs.
The home and the garage
where the box was located belong
to the family of a man who had
been dating the girl’s mother.
Both the mother, Angela
Steinfurth, and her now-
estranged boyfriend, Steven
King II, are in jail and accused
of obstructing justice. No
charges have been filed since
the remains were discovered.
Steinfurth and her two
daughters stayed with King at
his family’s home on June 1,
investigators said. The girl’s
father went to the residence to
pick up his two daughters the
next day, but only Elaina’s 4-
year-old sister could be found.
Investigators have said Stein-
furth knew Elaina had been
seriously injured and didn’t seek
medical help. They would not
say what type of injuries the tod-
dler had or who caused them.
Steinfurth has been in jail
since mid-June. Her attorney,
Jane Roman, declined to com-
ment on Friday.
King was charged in July with
lying to investigators about the
child’s disappearance. He told
reporters after his arrest that he
is innocent. A message was left
with his lawyer.
Authorities, including the
FBI, have searched homes,
vacant buildings and the Mau-
mee River near downtown Tole-
do for any sign of Elaina over
the past three months. Volun-
teers also have looked through
neighborhoods and parks.
Officers searched both the
home and the garage in the
days after Elaina disappeared.
They went to back to the
home Thursday and removed
the box with the remains, just
hours after King appeared in
court at a hearing where his
trial date was scheduled.

Auliea Hanlon receives a hug Thursday from a supporter
during a rally in which protesters called for the resigna-
tion of a judge who presided over the trial of a former
teacher who raped Hanlon’s daughter. Hanlon rejected
Judge G. Todd Baugh’s apology for his comment that her
daughter was “older than her chronological age” before
sentencing the rapist to 30 days in prison.
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) —
Montana’s Supreme Court on Fri-
day blocked a judge from resen-
tencing a former teacher who got
30 days in prison for raping a
14-year-old student, a sentence
widely criticized after the judge
said the victim was “older than
her chronological age.”
Justices said Judge G. Todd
Baugh lacked authority to
impose a new sentence on
former Billings teacher Stacey
An appeal of the case already
was pending from prosecutors
who contend Rambold should
serve two years, at a minimum.
But Baugh had sought to undo
the sentence on his own after his
remarks triggered a public back-
lash and calls for his resignation.
Rambold’s victim, Cherice
Moralez, committed suicide in
2010 while the case was pending.
Baugh commented at Rambold’s
Aug. 26 sentencing that she was
“as much in control of the situa-
tion as was the defendant.”
The state Supreme Court
intervention came in response
to an emergency petition from
the Attorney General’s Office to
stop Baugh’s plans for a Friday
afternoon resentencing. The
state had warned that Baugh’s
plans could throw the case into
disarray and “cause gross injus-
tice to an orderly appeal.”
Less than an hour before
the hearing was to begin, the
high court ordered Baugh to
cancel it and enter a written
sentence for Rambold so the
appeal process could proceed.
Court records show Baugh
submitted two signed judg-
ments on Friday: One calling
for a two-year prison term for
Rambold — with a note at the
bottom saying it was withdrawn
given the Supreme Court order
— and a second that matched
his original oral pronounce-
ment for a 30-day term.
Appearing in his courtroom
about the time the hearing was
scheduled to begin, Baugh told
a group of reporters that he
stuck with his original, oral
judgment in order to comply
with the court order.
The judge also seemed to affix
some degree of blame for the
original sentence on prosecutors,
because they did not immediate-
ly raise objections to his actions
at the Aug. 26 hearing.
Yellowstone County Attor-
ney Scott Twito said in response
that his office had sought 20
years in prison for Rambold
with 10 years suspended, and
it was up to the judge to make
a final determination that day.
Rambold will continue to serve
out the original sentence while
the appeal is pending, Twito said.
That means he will be released
from prison late next month but
remain under probation and have
to register as a sex offender.
Activists who pushed for
Baugh to resign or be removed
from the bench said Friday
those efforts would continue.
“He took no responsibility, no
ownership. He blamed the state,
blamed the prosecutor,” said
Marian Bradley, president of the
Montana National Organization
for Women. She said his earlier
comments “tell women it’s not
OK to step forward, because even
if you do, you could be knocked
down by a judge.”
Moralez’s mother, Auliea
Hanlon, said through her attor-
ney that she was pleased the
appeal can now move forward.
Baugh told the Associated
Press he had “tried to do the
“I’ve said what I can say.
Those people that disagree
with it are always going to dis-
agree with it,” he said.
University of Montana School
of Law professor Jeffrey Renz
said the state had law on its side
in arguing Baugh’s attempt to
unilaterally change Rambold’s
sentence violated proper pro-
cedures. But as a practical mat-
ter, Rambold likely will return to
Baugh’s courtroom one way or
another, since the state Supreme
Court would remand the case
back to the judge to fix any sen-
tencing problems, Renz said.
Court stops Montana judge
from undoing rape sentence
WASHINGTON (AP) — The
Food and Drug Administra-
tion says consumers shouldn’t
worry too much about levels
of arsenic in rice — but should
vary their diets just in case.
The agency released a study
Friday of arsenic in 1,300 sam-
ples of rice and rice products,
the largest study to date look-
ing at the carcinogen’s pres-
ence in that grain. Consumer
groups have pressured the
FDA to set a standard for the
amount of arsenic that can be
present in rice products.
The study shows varying
levels, with the most arsenic
in brown rice and the least in
instant rice. Infant cereal and
infant rice formulas are also at
the low end of the spectrum.
The FDA says the amounts
are so small that rice is safe to
eat and there isn’t any concern
of immediate or short-term
adverse health effects. But the
agency said it is still studying the
long-term effects of eating rice.
Rice is thought to have
arsenic in higher levels than
most other foods because it is
grown in water on the ground,
optimal conditions for the
contaminant to be absorbed.
Arsenic is naturally present
in water, air, food and soil in two
forms, organic and inorganic.
Organic arsenic passes through
the body quickly and is essen-
tially harmless. Inorganic arse-
nic — the type found in some
pesticides and insecticides
— can be toxic and may pose a
cancer risk if consumed at high
levels or over a long period.
The FDA is looking into how
much organic and inorganic
arsenic rice eaters are con-
suming and whether those lev-
els are dangerous. The agency
will conduct a risk assessment
with the National Institutes of
Health and the Environmental
Protection Agency to further
measure those effects.
The government, along
with the public health com-
munity, has long encouraged
consumers to vary their diets
to minimize risk. Pediatricians,
for example, have moved away
from only recommending rice
cereal as a baby’s first solid
food. There is evidence that
other grains and even meats
and fruits and vegetables can
be just as healthful, says Dr.
Stephen Daniels of Children’s
Hospital Colorado, the chair-
man of the nutrition commit-
tee of the American Academy
Daniels said the FDA results
are “reassuring in many ways”
and parents who have been
giving their infants rice cereal
should not be concerned.

A6 SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2013 NATIONAL
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man who
held three women for a decade in his
Cleveland home said authorities missed
an opportunity to catch him in 2004,
because his picture should have been
captured by a school security camera
minutes before he abducted one of his
victims, according to interrogation video-
tapes that became public Friday.
In the video, deceased kidnapper Ariel
Castro says cameras outside Gina DeJesus’
school should have captured him there 15
minutes before the then-14-year-old girl
“You could have broke the case right
then and there,” Castro told police during
a recorded interview that was obtained
by NBC and first reported Friday on the
Cleveland police did not respond to
requests for comment regarding Castro’s
claim that there was a missed opportunity
to catch him after DeJesus disappeared.
The recording shows the former school-
bus driver eating a slice of pizza and later
pacing the room during a reportedly four-
hour interrogation in which he told police he
had used victim Amanda Berry’s cell phone
to call her mother and say she was alive.
“I think I said something ... that I have
her daughter and that she’s OK, and that
she’s my wife now — something like that,
you know, probably not the exact words,”
he told investigators.
Castro also describes what he con-
sidered a close call: a girlfriend spotted
a television on in a room occupied by
victim Michelle Knight. Castro told police
that made him think he might be caught.
Castro, 53, was a month into his life
sentence when he hanged himself in his
prison cell Tuesday night. A funeral home
picked up his body Friday from the Frank-
lin County Coroner’s office on behalf of
In the recording of his interrogation
following his May arrest, Castro, hand-
cuffed and dressed in dark clothes, is
asked about suicidal thoughts. A search of
Castro’s home had turned up a 2004 con-
fession note in which he wrote he wanted
“to put an end” to his life.
“And what about suicide? You still?” an
investigator asked him.
“I just want to crash through that win-
dow,” Castro answered.
Castro committed suicide using a bed-
sheet despite his placement in protective
custody, which involves checks every 30
minutes. He had been taken off suicide
watch while in county jail.
The state has launched two probes relat-
ed to Castro, Ohio prisons spokeswoman
JoEllen Smith said. One looks into the
suicide, and the other examines whether
Castro received proper medical and men-
tal health care leading up to his death.
A spokeswoman for the city of Cleveland
and its police department said Castro’s
case records are being reviewed to deter-
mine what will be made public under Ohio
law. Maureen Harper said the city isn’t the
source of the video that aired Friday.
Through a spokesman, Cuyahoga
County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty also
denied having released the recording. The
FBI’s Cleveland division spokeswoman
said the office did not release the video.

JEMEZ PUEBLO, N.M. (AP)
— A firefighter missing for a week
in a rugged New Mexico forest
was found dead Friday atop a
mesa, where he apparently had
crashed his ATV, officials said.
Token Adams, a 41-year-
old U.S. Forest Service fighter
who disappeared Aug. 30 while
checking a report of smoke,
was found in a remote area
not far from a road at about
11:45 a.m. Friday, authorities
announced at an afternoon
Hundreds of volunteers, fire-
fighters, search and rescue teams
and the Civil Air Patrol had spent
the past week combing some
50 square miles of mesa tops
and steep canyons east of Jemez
Springs for Adams.
State Police spokesman
Manny Gutierrez said Adams
appeared to have been killed in
a crash of his ATV, but authori-
ties declined to speculate on
whether he died immediately
or how long he had been dead.
They said he was found by
searchers using grids to cover
the remote area.
Despite the rugged terrain,
searchers had remained hope-
ful of finding him alive because
Adams, who grew up on the
edge of the Sierra National For-
est in California, was an expe-
rienced outdoorsman with
extensive survival skills.
Adams, a Navy veteran and
a former member of the Kings
River Hotshots in California, had
worked for the Forest Service
for about 10 years. He worked
in the Jemez Ranger District in
northern New Mexico for more
than a year and officials said he
knew the area well.
He is survived by his preg-
nant wife and a young son.
Gov. Susana Martinez sent
her condolences to the fire-
“Token is an American
hero, and he died in the way he
lived: serving and protecting
us,” she said, adding that she
also wanted to thank “every
single man and woman who
refused to quit looking until
they found Token.”
Missing NM firefighter
found dead in forest
PHOENIX (AP) — An Ari-
zona woman who spent more
than two decades on death
row was released on bond Fri-
day after a judge ruled there’s
no direct evidence linking her
to the death of her young son,
other than a purported confes-
sion to a detective whose hon-
esty has been questioned.
Debra Milke walked out of
the Maricopa County Sheriff’s
jail after supporters posted
The 9th Circuit Court of
Appeals overturned her con-
viction in March, stating that
prosecutors should have dis-
closed information that cast
doubt on the credibility of a
since-retired detective who
said Milke confessed.
The 49-year-old Milke has
not been exonerated, but a
judge said she could go free
while preparing for a new
trial in a case that made her
one of Arizona’s most reviled
Milke was convicted in the
death of her 4-year-old son,
Christopher, who was allegedly
killed for a $5,000 insurance
payout. His mother was accused
of dressing the boy in his favor-
ite outfit in December 1989 and
telling him he was going to see
Santa Claus at a mall before
handing him over to two men
who took the child into the des-
ert and shot him. She had been
imprisoned since 1990.
A defense lawyer told the
judge last week that Milke
would live in a Phoenix-area
home purchased by support-
Prosecutors declined to
comment on Milke’s possible
release and have not appealed
the bond order.
Milke, whose mother was
a German who married a U.S.
Air Force military policeman
in Berlin in the early 1960s, has
drawn strong support from cit-
izens of that nation and Swit-
zerland, neither of which has
the death penalty.
Max Krucker, former presi-
dent of the Swiss community
where Milke’s mother now
lives, said Renate Janka was
“ecstatic” Friday about the
possibility that her daughter
would be released. She was
planning to fly to Arizona as
early as Saturday, Krucker
“She said, ‘Now I can finally
hold my daughter in my arms
again,’” he told the Associated
Press in a telephone interview
from his home.
For as long as Milke has
been incarcerated, she and her
mother have only met in situ-
ations where they were sepa-
rated by glass.
“They were never able to
touch,” Krucker said.
A dozen years ago, Krucker
was among the organizers of
an effort in the Swiss town of
Emmetten to support Milke,
including by establishing a
bank account that collected
donations to aid in her defense.
The account eventually netted
about 200,000 Swiss francs, or
about $213,000 today. It’s now
nearly drained, he said.
Doubts about Milke’s guilt
and deep suspicion about the
reliability of the detective’s tes-
timony helped motivate Swiss
supporters to donate, as did
opposition to the death pen-
alty. Many also had concerns
that Milke didn’t have access to
the best defense because she
had too little money, he said.
Now supporters are excit-
ed about the prospect of her
release, Krucker said, but also
worried how she will manage
to pay the bond.
Janka, who is suffering from
cancer, was already forced to
sell her home to help cover her
daughter’s legal bills, he said.
Supporters also run a web-
site that requests donations
through both German and
Milke’s ex-husband, whose
name is Arizona Milke, believes
his former wife is guilty and
that supporters are fooled by
the postings on the website.
“It’s fed by propagandized
lies,” he said Friday. “They
write whatever they want and
put it up there like it’s true.”
Her chance at freedom
comes six months after a fed-
eral appeals court overturned
Milke’s conviction, ruling that
the prosecution should have
disclosed information about
the truthfulness of the now-
retired detective who testified
that Milke confessed.
Milke was a 25-year-old
insurance company clerk
when her son was killed. She
has maintained her innocence,
saying she had nothing to do
with the slaying.
The two men convicted
in the case both remain on
death row. Neither Roger Scott
nor former Milke roommate
James Styers testified at Milke’s
trial. Scott confessed during
a police interrogation and led
detectives to the boy’s body.
Maricopa County prosecu-
tors are still seeking the death
penalty against Milke at her
retrial, tentatively set for Sept.
30, and her alleged confes-
sion is at the heart of the case
Police detective Armando
Saldate Jr. testified that she
confessed to him in a closed
interrogation room. But the
confession was not recorded.
At trial, Milke denied that
she had confessed, but the jury
believed the detective.

The Associated Press
“If we open the door to the
use of chemical weapons and
let it go unresponded to, then
I think that sends a signal to
other people that want to use
them, that they can do so with
impunity.” — Sen. John McCain
at a town hall meeting where he
confronted opposition to a mili-
tary action against Syria for the
use of chemical weapons.
“No civilized system of justice
should have to depend on such
flimsy evidence, quite possibly
tainted by dishonesty or over-
zealousness, to decide whether
to take someone’s life or liberty.”

conviction for having her 4-year-
old son killed was overturned.

In the ongoing conference center
saga, the plot worsens.
The most recent study commis-
sioned by city officials — at a cost
of $17,000 — revealed a conference
center is expected to operate at a
loss for its first decade.
Specifically, the study by John-
son Consulting anticipated annual
losses of $500,000 in 2015, the first
year of operation, diminishing to
$55,369 in 2025.
The numbers, characterized as
“worst-case projections,” would
total nearly $1.8 million during the
initial 11-year period.
Jefferson City officials have pro-
posed contributing $9 million, from
lodging tax revenues, to fund con-
struction of the center, but have
signaled an unwillingness to provide
an operating subsidy.
In view of those parameters, the
report said: “It is reasonable for the
hotel developer to incur the risk
associated with this project, so as
to guarantee zero liability to the city
after the city pays debt service.”
Operating subsidies from the city
have not been ruled out by either of
the two developers that have sub-
mitted proposals. They are Farmer
Holding Company of Jefferson City
and Ehrhardt Hospitality Group,
Each developer is proposing a
different site. Farmer Holding would
build near the Capital Mall, which
it owns; Ehrhardt has proposed a
downtown site on West McCarty
The consultant, represented by
Charles Johnson, diplomatically
dodged a question on site prefer-
ence. He said: “A long-term urban
solution is better, but you’d have a
very solid” location at the mall.
In another observation, the con-
sultant essentially said although the
city might offer a stable relation-
ship, it is not a particularly attractive
The study found the city rated
best for safety, security and afford-
ability, but worst for entertainment
and nightlife, among other criteria.
Translation: You’re nice, Jefferson
City, but just not exciting.
This assessment comes despite
a range of efforts to increase attrac-
tions and up the “wow” factor here.
The study suggests Jefferson City
officials need to re-evaluate a con-
ference center — again.
By Ben Boychuk and Joel Mathis
Scripps Howard News Service
President Barack Obama has asked Congress
to authorize U.S. military strikes in Syria, where
the government has evidently used chemical
weapons in its ongoing civil war with rebels.
Obama says international norms against chemi-
cal weapons use must be enforced, but polls
show a large majority of Americans don’t want
the United States to take military action.
What should the United States do in Syria? Do
we owe anything to the afflicted residents of that
country? Joel Mathis and Ben Boychuk, the Red-
BlueAmerica columnists, debate the issue.
Let’s establish a frustrating truth upfront:
There are no good options in Syria — the best
anybody can come up with is a “least bad”
option. An attack by U.S. forces probably doesn’t
fit that goal. Many more people would die, and
it could set off a round of Middle East destabi-
lization that would replace a bunch of bad guys
with even worse guys. For now, at least, America
should stay out.
So what should we do? There are two main
issues to be addressed: the weapons problem
and the people problem.
The people problem is vexing, but still easier
to address. The Syrian civil war has killed more
than 100,000 of that country’s citizens. More than
2 million Syrians have fled their homeland — half
of them children, half of them becoming refugees
just within the last six months. It’s a humanitar-
ian crisis that hasn’t received the attention it
should because of all the dithering about pos-
sible military responses.
This actually represents a security problem for
the United States and its ally, Israel. Syria’s neigh-
boring countries — including Lebanon, Jordan,
Iraq, and NATO member Turkey — are struggling
to handle the influx of refugees. They could, the
United Nations warned this week, be brought to
the point of collapse by that strain.
So the U.S. should offer support and mon-
etary resources — to shore up those countries
individually yes, but also through the U.N. to
offer medical care, education, living areas and
more. The problem could persist for years, even
Let’s get in there and be ready to help for the
long haul. It will cost money. It will be worth it.
The chemical weapons problem probably
can’t be resolved without actually intensifying
the magnitude of slaughter and potential for
instability in the region. So let’s focus on what we
can make better — the refugee situation — and
stand ready to lend a hand to new government
when Syria’s current regime finally falls. We can’t
make things perfect. We can, however, avoid
making them worse.
When we talk about Syria, what we’re talking
about is a face-saving exercise in futility. Obama,
who drew a “red line” on chemical weapons
before he denied this week ever doing so, would
further debase U.S. credibility abroad to shore up
his foundering credibility here at home.
Mind you, the president had help getting us
into this fix from Republicans such as Sens. John
McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.,
who urged the president to bolster U.S. aid to
Syrian rebels. Never mind that most of the insur-
gents we’re arming would gladly kill Americans
as soon as they’re finished killing Alawites.
The best reason to intervene in Syria isn’t
humanitarian. The military goal would be to
deny Assad the use of his chemical weapons
But even that isn’t reason enough. Assad may
have used nerve gas on his people, but he hasn’t
used it on Americans. And eliminating Syria’s
chemical weapons would require more than a few
airstrikes. It would most likely require troops.
Yet a few airstrikes are precisely what the
Obama administration has planned. Its goal isn’t
to destroy but to “degrade” Assad’s chemical
weapons. We won’t even target Assad’s palaces
and other strategic targets, for fear of provoking
Iran or perhaps even Russia.
Many conservatives are asking, “What would
Ronald Reagan do?” Some point to the 1983 inva-
sion of Grenada or the 1986 airstrikes on Libya
to buttress their case for attacking Syria. Most
avert their eyes from Lebanon, another civil war
in another country bordering Israel, where 241
Marines died in the 1983 terrorist bombing of the
U.S. embassy in Beirut. Reagan called the inter-
vention “the worst mistake of my presidency.”
Intervening in the Syrian civil war would be
a mistake, too. But Obama’s “red line” has been
crossed, and the United States has shown itself to
be an inept world power whether or not we bomb
Assad. God help us when — not if — China and
Russia decide to take advantage of our leaders’

Obamacare: Too big, complex and costly
By U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer
The district work period that
August provides has always been
invaluable to me. It allows me to visit
with many constituents, small busi-
nesses, communities and organiza-
tions throughout the 3rd District and
talk to many of you and hear your
concerns and thoughts that are on
America is at an interesting junc-
ture in time. People, like you, are
more than fed-up with Washington
whether it is in regards to the lack of
jobs, high gas prices or Obamacare.
Obamacare continues to be the big-
gest issue of frustration among most
and it got me thinking of the many
failures of the law and how much
Obamacare has cost you and your
Since being signed into law in
2010, Obamacare has resulted in great
uncertainty and skyrocketing health-
care premiums, which has crippled
the pocket books of small businesses
and American families. After speak-
ing with you and seeing the impact of
the law’s cost increases and tax hikes,
I can honestly say that it is neither
affordable or caring, which is why I
remain diligent in my efforts to dis-
mantle the law through repeals and
In fact, the House has been suc-
cessful in repealing two costly pro-
visions and in

Then, on Jan. 1,
2013, the Commu-
nity Living Assis-
tance Services and
Act which would
have been a long-
program was successfully repealed.
However, these successes are clearly
not enough and are not protecting
Americans, like you, from the law’s
many taxes and from its most bur-
densome regulations, mandates, and
Over the past year, Obamacare
has had a number of setbacks and
more Americans are witnessing how
unworkable it is and how it is failing
all on its own. One of the law’s goals
was to help cover
ditions, a concept
I believe we must
but its effort has
been a failure. Ear-
lier this year, the

accept any new
tion Plan (PCIP)
that was meant to provide coverage
until the exchanges were up and run-
ning; thus, those with pre-existing
conditions have been left with noth-
ing more than what they had before.
More recently, the Administration
has announced a series of year-long
delays in the law because of missed
deadlines, an inability to effectively
organize its many components, and,
in my opinion, because of strong
opposition from the American peo-
ple. The Administration has delayed
out-of-pocket cost limitations, the
competitiveness component of the
Small Business Health Options Pro-
gram (SHOP), the employer man-
date to provide insurance coverage
for their employees, and the verifi-
cation of eligibility for subsidies on
the exchanges. I think it is important
to note that President Obama and
his administration have freely hand-
ed out waivers and exemptions for
the well-connected in Washington,
whereas Americans, like you, are still
subject to the individual mandate to
purchase health insurance or pay a
Companies seem to be getting a
reprieve from its burdensome require-
ments while hard-working American
families are left alone to navigate the
complicated system and either pay
fines or pay for health insurance that
has skyrocketed due to the health-
care law and its dozens of new taxes.
With the country enduring tough
economic times, an initial penalty of
$95 or 1 percent of a person’s income
in 2014 could be devastating. To make
matters worse, the penalty continues
to increase and could take $695 or 2.5
percent of a person’s income (which-
ever is greater) by 2016.
At the end of the day, Obamacare
is too big, complex, and much too
costly. I have voted 40 times to repeal,
defund and dismantle it, but the few
successes my Republican colleagues
and I have had have been through
strategic approaches to dismantle the
law piece-by-piece. While extremely
frustrating, the fact of the matter is
the president will never sign a bill
that repeals or defunds in its entirety
his signature piece of legislation. That
being said, you can be assured that I
will work tirelessly to repeal, defund
and dismantle this unaffordable and
overly burdensome law and to pass
legislation that places individuals
back in control of their health care.

BEIRUT (AP) — The State
Department ordered all nones-
sential U.S. personnel Friday to
leave Lebanon, reflecting fears
that an American-led strike
on neighboring Syria would
unleash more bloodshed in
this already fragile nation.
The Lebanese government’s
top security body held an emer-
gency meeting and the Shiite
militant group Hezbollah put
its fighters on high alert.
Lebanon and Syria share
a complicated history and a
web of political and sectarian
ties and rivalries. The upris-
ing against President Bashar
Assad has intensified divisions
among Lebanese religious
groups as well as polarization
among those who support him
and those backing the rebels
fighting to topple him.
Lebanon has become com-
pletely consumed by the civil war
next door. Car bombings, rock-
ets, kidnappings and sectarian
clashes — all related to the con-
flict — have become increasingly
common in recent months.
Hezbollah, a staunch ally of
the Syrian regime, has sent its
fighters to back Assad’s forc-
es against the rebels and the
militant group’s leader, Sheikh
Hassan Nasrallah, has suggest-
ed he would to do everything it
takes to save the regime.
Adding to the jitters, the
U.S. said it had instructed its
nonessential staff to leave Bei-
rut and urged private American
citizens to get out of Lebanon.
The step had been under
consideration since last week,
when President Barack Obama
said he was contemplating
military action against the Syr-
ian government for its alleged
chemical weapons attack last
month that killed hundreds
authorities are not able to guar-
antee protection for citizens or
visitors to the country should
violence erupt suddenly. Access
to borders, airports, roads, and
seaports can be interrupted
with little or no warning,” a State
Department statement said.
In a separate advisory for
Turkey, the State Department
announced it would allow per-
sonnel at the Adana consulate
— the closest diplomatic post
to Syria — to leave their posts.
It recommended that U.S. citi-
zens defer nonessential travel
to southeastern Turkey.
The department also renewed
its travel warnings for Iraq and
Pakistan, advising Americans of
continuing security concerns in
those two countries. Both have
been the subject of long-stand-
ing travel warnings.
About 150 people from sev-
eral pro-Syrian political groups
gathered for a peaceful protest
near the U.S. Embassy com-
pound north of Beirut, pledg-
ing larger rallies in case of a
U.S. attack in Syria. Some of
them had painted their hands
red, symbolizing blood.

US orders diplomats out
of Lebanon amid fears
Obama sets Tuesday speech;
big challenges on Syria
ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — Beset by
divisions at home and abroad, President Barack
Obama candidly acknowledged deep challeng-
es Friday in winning support for a military
strike against Syria from international allies and
the U.S. Congress. He refused to say whether
he might act on his own, a step that could have
major implications for the U.S. as well as for the
remainder of his presidency.
The White House laid out an intense week
of lobbying, with Obama addressing the nation
from the White House Tuesday night.
“I did not put this before Congress just as
a political ploy or as symbolism,” Obama said,
adding that it would be a mistake to talk about
any backup strategy before lawmakers vote on a
The president spoke to reporters at the end
of a two-day international summit, where he
sought backing for a strike against Syria in retal-
iation for a deadly chemical weapons attack
against civilians. But Obama appeared to leave
the summit with no more backing than he had
when he arrived.
In fact, Russian President Vladimir Putin, a
staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad,
said he was the one with support from the majori-
ty of countries attending the Group of 20 meeting.
Putin insisted anew that Obama seek approval
from the United Nations before taking military
action, despite the fact that Russia has blocked
previous Security Council efforts to punish Assad
throughout Syria’s bloody 2 1/2-year civil war.
The White House tried to counter Putin’s
assessment by releasing a joint statement from
the U.S. and 10 other countries announcing sup-
port for “efforts undertaken by the United States”
to enforce an international prohibition on chem-
ical weapons use. The statement did not specify
military action against Syria, but administration
officials said the intent was to show international
support for that type of response.
The countries signing the statement with
the U.S. were Australia, Canada, France, Italy,
Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Turkey
and the United Kingdom.
Putin said the U.S. push for military action
has been supported only by Turkey, Canada,
Saudi Arabia and France.
“The use of force against a sovereign nation
is only possible as self-defense — and Syria
hasn’t attacked the United States — and on
approval of the U.N. Security Council,” Putin
said. “Those who do otherwise place them-
selves outside the law.”
Indeed, Obama’s coalition appeared any-
thing but strong. Britain’s Parliament has already
voted against military action. Even French Pres-
ident Francois Hollande, who has expressed
willingness to form a military coalition with the
U.S. against Syria, displayed sudden caution,
saying he would wait until a United Nations
investigation into the Aug. 21 sarin gas attack
was released before deciding whether to inter-
vene militarily. The U.N. report is not expected
to be released until mid-to late-September.
Obama and Hollande discussed strategy during
a meeting on the sidelines of the summit Friday.
The U.S. president also held a surprise meeting
with Putin. The two leaders, who have a strained
relationship, said their conversations were candid,
but yielded no new agreement on Syria.
The burden of undertaking military action
appeared to be weighing on Obama through-
out his 50-minute post-summit question-and-
answer session. He made several references to
the immense responsibility the world places on
the United States in responding to humanitar-
ian crises, saying that the first question often
asked is, “Why isn’t the United States doing
something about this?”
The president departed Russia Friday night,
bound for Washington where he also faces tough
going in rallying support for military action,
including from fellow Democrats. Force-autho-
rization resolutions face an uncertain future
in Congress, and a significant segment of the
American public opposes a strike.
New rights worries over
arrests in Egypt
CAIRO (AP) — The deten-
tions of an Egyptian labor
lawyer and a journalist raised
concerns among rights activists
Friday that the military-backed
government’s crackdown on
Islamists is expanding to silence
other critics of its policies.
Authorities have been car-
rying out a wave of arrests for
weeks against Islamist backers
of ousted President Moham-
med Morsi, who was removed
in a July 3 coup. Still, his sup-
porters have pushed ahead
with protests organized by his
Muslim Brotherhood denounc-
ing the military and demand-
ing Morsi’s return to office.
In the latest rallies, thou-
sands flowed from mosques
Friday, chanting “down with
military rule” and waving
Authorities have depict-
ed the crackdown against
Islamists as part of a “fight
against terror.” At least 2,000
Brotherhood members have
been arrested, most on allega-
tions of inciting violence.
A low-intensity militant
insurgency has hit the Sinai
peninsula and other areas
in the south, where Islamist
radicals have a strong base. A
failed attempt to assassinate
the interior minister Thursday
with a car bomb has raised
fears of an escalating Islamic
militant campaign of revenge
over the coup.
Along with the arrests, there
has also been a heavy blan-
ket of intimidation against
criticism from within the non-
Islamist camp against the mili-
Officials frequently urge the
public to unite in the face of
the terror threat. Rights law-
yer Gamal Eid noted how pro-
military TV stations and other
media smear critics of the
crackdown or other policies,
including branding them as a
“fifth column” for the Broth-
erhood. Private citizens have
filed legal suits against activ-
ists, accusing them of serving
foreign agendas or espionage.
The detentions of labor
lawyer Haitham Mohamma-
dain and journalist Ahmed
Abu-Draa raised further alarm
Mohammadain was detained
from a bus Thursday at a check-
point in the port city of Suez. He
belongs to the Revolutionary
Socialists, a well-known leftist
group which took part in the
2011 uprising against autocrat-
ic leader Hosni Mubarak and
protests against Morsi and is
now critical of the military.
His lawyer, Maha Youssef,
said Mohammedain was first
asked by the policeman at the
checkpoint why he has a beard,
which is seen as a sign of an
Islamist. When he objected to
the question, the policeman
asked him to step out of the
bus for more frisking, a power
granted to police under the
current emergency laws.
When the officer found
papers on him identifying him
as a member of the Revolu-
tionary Socialists, the officer
detained Mohammadain and
wrote a police report accusing
him of belonging to a secret
group, according to Youssef.
She said Mohammadain
has yet to be formally charged
Journalist Abu-Draa, who
reports from the volatile north-
ern Sinai, has been under arrest
since Wednesday, a military
official said. He faces military
investigation on allegations
of publishing wrong informa-
tion about an ongoing secu-
rity operation, taking photos of
military installations without a
permit and spreading rumors
about the armed forces.
The official spoke on condi-
tion anonymity because he isn’t
authorized to brief reporters.
Abu-Draa, a resident of
Sinai, questioned the military’s
statements about its opera-
tions against militant groups
in Sinai. During military air-
strikes on a village that is a
militant stronghold, Abu Draa
wrote on Facebook that the
strikes hit civilian areas and
accused military officials of
misinforming the public.
Few journalists have direct
access to what is happening
in Sinai because of security
concerns, forcing many to
rely on statement by officials.

reporter who has done inves-
tigation stories in Sinai, free-
lances for multiple Egyptian
and foreign newspapers and
Mexico frees 2 men
jailed for drugs
in US-sold van
MEXICO CITY (AP) — A
federal judge on Friday freed
two teenagers who were jailed
nearly 10 months despite evi-
dence showing that the cocaine
that police found in their van
may have been hidden in the
vehicle before it was bought at
a U.S. government auction.
Judge Elenisse Leyva deliv-
ered a verdict of not guilty after
the prosecutor decided to drop
charges, saying the drugs could
have been concealed in the
secret compartment of the min-
ivan without the teens knowing.
Federal police in November
detained Sergio Torres Duarte,
18, and his friend Julio Cesar
Moreno, 19, at a checkpoint near
the Pacific Coast resort city of
Mazatlan, as they traveled to a
soccer match. Officers discov-
ered a kilogram of cocaine hid-
den under the minivan’s dash-
board and booked them at a
The Torres family bought
the vehicle for $3,900 at a U.S.

auction in February 2012. After
the young men were arrested,
they discovered that the blue
2004 Toyota Sienna had been
seized by American authori-
ties in October 2011 for hiding
bundles of cocaine.
U.S. officials acknowledged
earlier this year in a letter to
Mexican prosecutors that they
may have failed to find all the
drugs in the minivan.
Every brick of drugs confis-
cated in an inspection at the
international bridge in Pharr,
Texas had the word “Good”
written with a black marker, just
like the one seized by Mexican
police a year afterward, Torres’
father said. In July, the fam-
ily began a media campaign
to draw attention to what they
said was “an error by the U.S.”

She’s a two-time all-stater.

Helias’ Kaitlyn Shea is back for her junior year after a
pair of all-state finishes.
Phillips said he thinks this
team has the potential to be
a better squad this year and
hopes it can surprise some
“There is no one in the state
going to be real worried about
us,” Phillips said. “That’s a fact,
on the boys side.”
Things are a little different
for the Lady Jays.
Jefferson City, which won
its sectional race last season,
returns four runners who com-
peted at the state meet last
The good part for Phillips is
he thinks this year’s team could
be even better.
“There’s more competi-
tion,” Phillips said. “We’re just
a better team. We’ve had kids
emerge. We have the same top
kids back and we’ve had kids

Kaley Ruff, a two-time all-state
performer who finished 13th at
the state meet last season.
Other key runners back for
Jefferson City include junior
Tori Bonnot and senior Emily
Phillips said he has been
impressed in the offseason
by sophomore Lindsey Biese-
“Biesmeyer has taken a
humoungous step from being
a ninth, 10th runner,” Phillips
said. “... She’s a front-pack type
Also in the mix for varsity
spots are sophomores Brenna
Duncan and Natalie Vance,
along with seniors Allison
Muenks and Madison Hart.
“We had a poor state meet,”
Phillips said. “The team we beat
at sectionals (Rock Bridge) was
fifth at the state meet. Nothing
says we should have beaten
them at the state meet, they
are a (heck) of a team, but we
should have been higher than
Phillips said he thinks
this team has the making to
improve up last year’s finish.
“The way things look we
seem to be shaping up to be
a stronger team,” Phillips said.
“… We have had more varsity
kids run more miles this sum-
mer than the previous three.
We look stronger right now.”

at state last year, are battling
in a group for the final two

include Lanie Hentges, Kylie

injured, was a state qualifier
last season as a freshman.

total of 16 girls on the team this
On the boys side, the Cru-
saders return four starters
from a team that was 13th at
the state championships.
But they will start at a disad-
vantage as two of those return-
ers — seniors Matt Lorang
(10nd) and Christian Collins
(156th) — are battling injuries.
“When we get them back,
we have an awesome top six
guys,” Haskamp, who has 13
boys on the team, said. “We
have a good group who are
capable of not only staying
together, but staying together
with good times.”
Evan Block, a senior who
was 108th at state last year,
was first in Helias’ time trials.
Thomas Asmar, a junior who
was second in the time trials, is
the other state returner (136th).
Elliot Knernschield was third
in the preseason race and fills
out the top group.
“In every practice, in every
speed workout, they are all
there together,” Haskamp said.

pack and that should give us a
good shot at getting to state.

“All of those will make an
immediate impact at the var-
sity level, so that’s super,” Keys
said. “We aren’t sharing as
many girls this year with other
sports, so we’ll be more con-
sistent in a team score. In past
years I’ve had some people that
would run in junior varsity, but
I think all of our young ladies
are ready for varsity.”
The Blair Oaks boys team
appears to be on the rise
despite the loss of its top run-
ner from 2012.
Brett Voss, now running at
Navy, placed third at the Class
2 meet last season, capping off
a brilliant career with his best
overall finish. He placed 44th
as a freshman, 14th as a sopho-
more and fifth as a junior.
Keys is confident the young-
er Falcons will follow his lead.
“They are gradually improv-
ing,” he said. “Certainly having
a really good runner in Brett
just sort of paving the way.
Other kids can see, ‘Wow, he
works hard, I can have success
too.’ And I think that’s impor-
“His legacy lives on, cer-
tainly with Jason Otto and Nick

Mikel Drehle intercepted a
pass and took it back 40 yards
for a touchdown.
Owensville got the ball back

stripped the ball and Caleb
Bischoff scooped it up and
raced 20 yards for a touch-

Oaks coach Brad Drehle said.
“That’s what we wanted to do,
we wanted to come out there
and get after them. Owensville
is a team that’s improved, but
they’re still struggling and we
didn’t want to give them any
On Owensville’s second
play of its third possession,
the Dutchmen threw another
interception. Mikel Drehle was
the culprit again, as he leapt
high into the air to come down
with his second pick.
The Blair Oaks offense final-
ly got a chance to get involved
and four plays later, Jordan
Hair hit Haydn Lock with a 13-
yard touchdown pass.
After another defensive
stop, Blair Oaks got a 4-yard
touchdown run by Bischoff
and it was 26-0 with 6:02 left in
the first quarter.
Hair got two more touch-
down passes on the Falcons’
next two possessions — a 42-
yarder to Lock and a 49-yarder
to C.J. Closser.
The Falcons’ final points of
the first quarter — which made
it a staggering 42-0 — came
when Owensville snapped the
ball over the head of its punter
and out of the end zone for a
“Our kids were able to come
out and get something going
quick,” Brad Drehle said.
Blair Oaks added two scores
in the second quarter, a 30-
yard touchdown pass from
Hair to Mikel Drehle and a 69-
yard pass from Jake VanRon-
zelen to Adam Schell.
That made it 55-0 at half-
time, as the Falcons’ defense
dominated the Dutchmen.
Owensville ran 33 offensive
plays for a minus-19 yards.
Included in that were 28 rushes
and five passes that failed to
find an Owensville player.
“I thought we did a lot bet-
ter job getting penetration, get-
ting in the gaps, and I thought
we tackled a lot better (than

were last week and hopefully

The Jays set the tone for the
second half on their opening
possession. Down 14-7, Ray-

opening kick of the second half
to the Belleville East 45-yard
line. Six plays later Gabe Mar-
cantonio connected with John
Ellinger on a 20-yard touch-
down pass to tie the score at

from sophomore kicker J.T.

Even with Belleville East’s
offense unable to move the ball
in the second half, the Lancers
only trailed 20-14 and had a
chance to drive for the winning
score with slightly more than
three minutes left.
That’s when a Jefferson City
punt by Marcantonio appeared
to be in the end zone for a
touchback, as a Jay touched it
with his foot on the line.
But the rule in high school
football says as long as the ball
does not cross the line, a player
can be in the end zone to down
Instead of having the ball at
the 20-yard line, Belleville East
had to go 99 yards.
Two plays later, a fumble
went out of the back of the end
zone for a safety. Jefferson City
then ran the clock out after
picking up one first down on
its next possession.
LePage said he was aware of
the rule, Funk said he was not.
“The ball wasn’t in the end
zone but the player was,” Funk
said. “We looked it up and the
official is correct. But the prob-
lem I guess I have is that for
the last 11 years as Belleville
East head coach, we’ve got that
called against us.”
Marcantonio finished with
a pair of touchdown passes to
Ellinger, as well as 76 yards
rushing. Elijah Pittman added
125 yards on the ground as
the Jays outgained the Lanc-
ers 347-211. Ellinger added six

interception for the Jays, who
are 2-0 and play again Friday

right now we are fishing dark wooly buggers, prince
nymphs, copper johns, lightning bugs, small gold jigs,
small thread jigs and brassies; large dry flies will take
a few here and there; the fish are still reacting to a
hopper or beetle, in some areas where there is a bit of
slow water, glo balls and the San Juan worms in bright
orange and red are also working; buggers with extra
mylar in the tails are working good, use 5x and 6x; the
water has come back down and the use of Power Bait
is recommended if you just want to catch a fast limit
of trout, the orange, fluorescent yellow and white are
all good in the eggs; if you are using the worms, the
orange peel, orange, cheese yellow and chartreuse
are all working; small gold spoons are really good
if you fish them deep and slow; small spinners still
work fine; jigs are catching fish, 1/32 and larger are
best, but a few people have been catching trout on
the white and olive micro jig; larger jigs are working
best, in the darker colors, olive, black, black/yellow and
dark brown have all been working well; the water has
become clear so you should go back to the 2 pound
line; if you go into Zone 3, nightcrawlers and minnows
would be good choices, or any of the bright colored
Power Baits should work.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis
Cardinals general manager
John Mozeliak said he’d be
happy if Allen Craig could
return for the postseason.
Craig is sidelined by a left
mid-foot sprain and he’s wear-
ing a boot to immobilize the
injury sustained rounding first
base Wednesday in Cincinnati.
“I think in the short term
he’s not going to be available
anytime soon,” Mozeliak said
Friday. “I don’t want to guess
when he may or may not be
ready, but I think it’s not immi-
Craig has had a pair of MRI
exams that showed no frac-
ture and met with a handful of
doctors whose opinions have
the Cardinals cautiously opti-
“Originally I was pretty
scared because my foot’s never
bent that way,” Craig said. “To
get that news is huge, and giv-
ing me a chance to at least
potentially come back this sea-
son is good.”
Craig was among the NL
leaders with 97 RBI and was
batting .454 with runners in
scoring position, the best in
the majors. He said the foot felt
The Cardinals returned
from a 2-5 trip and were 1
games behind the Pirates with
22 games remaining entering
Friday. Mozeliak said if he’d
been asked in March, he’d
have “absolutely” taken that
“There’s always sort of the
ups and downs and the ebb
and flow of the season,” the
GM said. “We’re back home,
we’ve got a lot of home games
on our schedule, so I feel pretty
good about where we are.”
The Cardinals activated
pitcher Jake Westbrook from
the 15-day disabled list, but
he’ll be in the bullpen for now
instead despite the rotation’s
Manager Mike Matheny
said Lance Lynn, who has lost
four straight starts, would take
his next turn. The Cardinals
have a day off Monday and will
give all the starters extra rest.
Mozeliak thought Lynn had
been “picking a little bit” and
ending up with deeper counts.
Lynn gave up three homers
in a loss against the Reds on
Wednesday and has allowed
11 runs and 17 hits in nine
innings in his past two starts.
“You start losing your
advantage when you go from
0-2 to 3-2,” Mozeliak said.
“Typically when pitchers are
having success, they’re able to
get quick outs.”
It’s not much leeway for
Lynn, who is 0-5 in his past six
“The definition of insanity is
repeating the same thing over
and over again and hoping for
a different outcome,” Mozeliak
said. “So at some point some-
thing has to give.”
The 35-year-old Westbrook
went on the DL on Aug. 22
because of a lower back strain,
and rejoined the roster Friday
for a three-game series against
NL Central-leading Pittsburgh.
He’s 7-8 with a 4.49 ERA
in 19 games, all but one of
them starts, and earned his
100th career victory earlier in
“We’ll try to get him some
work,” Mozeliak said. “There’s
no place for him to rehab, so
here we go.”

Infante had run-producing
singles in the second, fourth
and seventh innings and a
three-run double in the fifth.
It was more than enough sup-
port for Anibal Sanchez (13-7),
who allowed one run in seven
innings while lowering his AL-
best ERA to 2.61.
Sparked by the return of
Miguel Cabrera, every Detroit
starter had a hit and scored a
run in the first five innings. The
Tigers sent 10 men to the plate
in the second and fourth, scor-
ing five times in each frame.
Cabrera, who did not play in
four of the previous five games
because of an abdominal
strain, went 1-for-2 with a RBI
and walked twice before being
replaced by Danny Worth in
the sixth inning.
Much of Detroit’s onslaught
came against James Shields,
who was knocked out in the
fourth inning in one of the
worst starts of his career.
Jackson had a two-run dou-
ble in the second and a two-
run single in the fourth. The
four RBI matched his career
Shields (10-9), who was 4-0
in his previous five starts, was
charged with 10 runs and 14
hits in 3

and hits matched career-worst
totals for the right-hander.

Kelly beats Pirates
again, Cardinals win
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos
Beltran had RBI his first two
at-bats to help chase A.J. Bur-
nett early and Joe Kelly beat
the Pittsburgh Pirates for the
third straight time in a 12-8
rout Friday night that pulled
the St. Louis Cardinals within
a half-game of the NL Central
Burnett (7-10) gave up
five runs in three innings, his
shortest outing of the year, and
the Cardinals opened a seven-
run seventh with nine straight
hits off three relievers includ-
ing Yadier Molina’s three-run
homer off Bryan Morris. The
Pirates have lost two straight,
both blowouts, and remain a
win shy of clinching their first
winning season since 1992.
Kelly (8-3) has been the
stopper lately for a struggling
rotation, winning five straight
starts. He’s 8-0 with a 2.10 ERA
in 11 appearances since getting
the fifth spot in late June and
then waiting 14 days because
of off-days in the schedule to
make that start.
Leadoff man Matt Carpen-
ter tripled and doubled to tie
Albert Pujols’ season record
of 98 hits in 2008 at 8-year-
old Busch Stadium, also his
major league high 55th multi-
hit game. Jon Jay, coming off
a 1-for-20 trip, had three hits
and three RBI.
The Pirates have scored
two runs in 18 innings against
Kelly. The only thing the right-
hander hasn’t done is save the
bullpen, working six innings in
each of his last five starts with
a season best of 6
Pittsburgh had five bas-
erunners and no runs the first
two innings and stranded 10
runners in six innings against
Kelly, who allowed one run and
eight hits. Pedro Alvarez, who
grounded out with the bases
loaded to end the first, had an
RBI single in the fifth.
The Cardinals led 12-1
after seven innings but need-
ed Edward Mujica to get the
final out for his 36th save in
39 chances. Josh Harrison hit
a two-run pinch-hit homer
off Jake Westbrook in a four-
run eighth and Jose Tabata hit
a two-run double off Carlos
Martinez in a three-run ninth
before Harrison flied out with
two men on to end a game that
lasted 3 hours and 47 minutes.
The Cardinals rebounded
from a 2-5 trip in which they
scored two or fewer runs five
times, one of them against
Burnett in a 7-1 loss Aug. 31.
Burnett had been 3-0 with a
2.59 ERA in five starts against
the Cardinals, but facing them
in consecutive starts led to his
fastest exit since he allowed
12 earned runs in 2

seven RBI by Beltran, in a 12-

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The
numbers aren’t exactly in Brad
Keselowski’s favor. He’s 15th in

and at a track where he has
never led a lap in the Sprint
It doesn’t bode well for his
last-gasp effort to grab one of
the final spots in the Chase for
the Sprint Cup championship

short in tonight’s race at Rich-
mond International Raceway,
the defending NASCAR cham-
pion will be a spectator for the
It wouldn’t be the first time
the defending NASCAR cham-
pion is ineligible to defend
his title. In 2006, Tony Stewart
failed to make the Chase a year
after his second champion-
That doesn’t make Kesel-
owski feel any better about
his situation. But he’s confi-
dent his Penske Racing team is
doing everything in its power,
save for an engine failure last
week at Atlanta, where he led
31 laps before his motor quit
with 18 laps to go.
“I’d be ashamed if we didn’t
run well. That’s what I would
be ashamed of, and we’re not
running badly,” Keselowski
said. “I think the scenario that
Tony had that year just shows
how easy it is to miss a Chase,
because these are the best driv-
ers in the world. They’re elite
drivers, elite teams. There are
scenarios that are just, quite
frankly, outside of your con-
trol. You combine those with
one or two small mistakes, it
all stacks up really quickly.
“I would say that Tony
would probably say that’s what
happened to him that year, just
as I am now.”
Keselowski’s season as
champion started with prom-
ise. Four finishes of third or
fourth to open the season
moved him into the points lead
one month into the season.
Trouble came three weeks
later at Texas, where NASCAR
officials seized parts from
the rear suspensions of Kes-
elowski’s and teammate Joey
Logano’s cars. The drivers were
docked 25 points each, seven
Penske employees were sus-
pended for six points races
and the crew chiefs were fined
Penske appealed to the
highest level, and the suspen-
sions were eventually reduced
to two races, but everything
else was upheld.
Boy, could Keselowski use
those 25 points back now.
He goes into Richmond 28
points outside the 10th-place
in the standings. Without the
penalty, he’d only be three
points out and in much bet-
ter shape to crack the top 10
“As far as Texas and what-
not, I haven’t honestly put that
much thought into the effect
of that on our season,” Kesel-
owski said. “I do know we’ve
left a lot more on the table
than 25 points, which is what
we lost there. We left a lot on
the table this year. It wouldn’t
necessarily be fair to blame
every shortfall on that one.
There’s also the matter of
Watkins Glen, where Keselows-
ki finished second for the third

that race, but would have been
forced to get aggressive on
the last lap to get to Victory
Lane. Aggressive as in mov-

was no reason to wreck Busch
in that situation. Busch had

DEAR ABBY: I’m 24 and a college grad-
uate. My boyfriend, “Jordan,” and I have
been together for a year and we would
like to get married. However, my parents
are against the idea. They love Jordan, but
they think marriage is stupid because, in
2013, “WHO is getting married?”
I think this is totally ridiculous, but
I don’t know what to do. I want to be
married and I would love my parents’
approval, but it’s hard when they call me
stupid for wanting to take that
step just because their marriage
didn’t work out.
I love Jordan and I love my
parents. Should I have to choose
between the two? — TOTALLY
DEAR TOTALLY TORN: You
do not have to choose between
your parents and being mar-
ried. At 24, you are an adult and
mature enough to make your
own decision about the impor-
tance of the institution.
As to the question of “who is get-
ting married” these days, one answer is
people with college degrees are marry-
ing at a greater rate than those with only
a high school education — and their
unions are more lasting. I’m sorry your
parents’ marriage didn’t work out, but
you would be foolish to let their cynical
opinion of this kind of commitment taint
your perspective. I hope you and Jordan
enjoy many happy and fulfilling years
DEAR ABBY: What are your thoughts
about co-workers dating? I have a crush
on one of my co-workers, and I believe
it is reciprocated. We’re unsure about
an office romance because, while it
isn’t against the rules for people to date
within the building, there are
concerns about sexual harass-
ment or inappropriate behavior
on the premises. (Some of our
co-workers have dated with no
Would it be wrong to attempt
to further the relationship, as
long as it remains appropriate
within the office, or should I for-
get it and date someone outside
of work? — WORKING RELA-
TIONSHIP IN INDIANA
DEAR WORKING RELATIONSHIP:
This may seem old-fashioned, but I’m not
crazy about the idea of office romances.
While I know they are not uncommon
and it’s hard to fight mutual attraction,
office romances are distracting. When
the pheromones are flying, it can be
extremely difficult to concentrate on the
tasks at hand. And if it doesn’t work out,
there can be tension, embarrassment
and hard feelings in the aftermath, and
that’s not good for business.
DEAR ABBY: Twice in the past month
I have received thank-you notes for gifts
I had given, but the wrong gift was men-
tioned. I usually spend a lot of time select-
ing just the right thing, and I take pride in
I understand how something like that
could happen, but I’m not sure what to
do about it. Should I just keep quiet about
it, or say something to the person? What
would I say? I don’t want to embarrass
anyone, but I know I have received gifts
in the past that will forever remind me of
the giver. — PICKING OUT PRESENTS IN
DEAR PICKING OUT PRESENTS: I see
nothing to be gained by not alerting
the person to the mistake. If you were
thanked for the wrong gift, so was anoth-
er giver. If I had mixed up the gift cards, I
would want to know — wouldn’t you? Do
unto others ...

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fans of popular
artists or sports teams are painfully aware
how difficult it is to find good seats to live
events at affordable prices. With a new
ticket resale system, Ticketmaster is trying
to show you what seats are available in
one place — both unsold ones and those
up for resale — so you can price-shop
The nation’s largest ticket-seller quietly
began rolling out its system, called Ticket-
master Plus, for certain shows including a
Black Sabbath concert in Massachusetts in
August. More than two dozen professional
sports teams have signed up, including
many in the NFL. With the pro football
season beginning in earnest Sunday, mil-
lions of football fans could start using the
system soon. So far, about 300 events have
used Ticketmaster Plus, which the com-
pany says is still in test mode.
Using a computer, ticket buyers can see
where each available seat is in a stadium,
how much it’s selling for and whether it’s
a marked-up resale seat or one that hasn’t
been sold yet.
Before, you had to check for resales
and unsold tickets separately. By seeing
them together, you can tell before paying
the resale price whether you can get an
unsold ticket much cheaper just a row or
a few seats away. For an upcoming Miami
Dolphins’ home game against the Atlanta
Falcons, for instance, you can see that a
single resale seat in Section 122 priced at
$146.05 is right beside an unsold seat sell-
ing for $85.
For some happy customer, that extra
$61.05 will buy a lot of hot dogs, beer and
“This now allows fans to have one-stop
shopping,” said Jim Rushton, the Dol-
phins’ chief revenue officer.
Ticket holders who are looking to sell
because they can’t make an event can do
so from a mobile phone or computer. All
transfers are electronic so there’s no need
to send physical tickets in the mail.
Ticketmaster, a division of Beverly Hills,
Calif.-based Live Nation Entertainment
Inc., is hoping its new system will help it
take a larger share of the resale ticket mar-
ket, which is estimated to be worth more
than $4 billion in annual revenue in North
America. The figure includes the resale
ticket price and associated fees, which are
estimated at about $1 billion a year.
Ticket sellers are usually brokers, who
buy tickets hoping to sell them for profit,
as well as sports fans who are season
ticket holders but can’t make every game.
Individuals whose plans change are also
in the market to flip their tickets.
Profit from resale tickets often goes to
brokers, who are often first in line to buy
tickets the moment they go on sale. By
offering an improved resale system, Tick-
etmaster can collect a fee on every resale.
The fee amounts to about 20 percent
— about half from the buyer and half from
the seller. Rushton says the team will also
share in those fees, unlike for third-party
reseller sites such as StubHub, where the
team makes nothing.
Bringing customers to a map that
shows original tickets alongside resale
tickets increases the chance that more
original tickets get sold. More original
ticket sales will increase the amount of
money that goes to venues, teams or art-
ists, improving Ticketmaster’s relations
with its clients.
John Tinker, an analyst with research
firm Maxim Group, believes Ticketmaster
Plus will help boost the company’s share
of the resale market from about 10 percent
to about 30 percent in the next few years.
That would result in about $300 million in
revenue and about $60 million in profits
each year, allowing it to catch up to market
leader StubHub, a unit of eBay Inc.
“StubHub has done a great job in the
space and Ticketmaster is finally stepping
it up,” he said.
Chris Tsakalakis, president of StubHub,
dismissed Ticketmaster’s new system, not-
ing Ticketmaster has been selling resale
tickets since 2002, most recently with its
“StubHub, with superior customer ser-
vice and more than triple Ticketmaster’s
secondary ticket sales, remains the mar-
ket leader, and we intend to keep it that
way,” he said.
In 2008, Ticketmaster got into trouble
with New Jersey regulators for directing
people to TicketsNow to buy marked-up
resale tickets for a Bruce Springsteen con-
cert when cheaper original tickets were
still available. By showing original and
resale tickets side by side, the new system
addresses that concern.
Ticket brokers say they are closely
watching how the new system evolves
through the test phase.
Harris Rosner, owner of VIP Tickets, a
ticket reseller that has an office near Los
Angeles’ Staples Center, said competition
between the two largest resale market-
places could help fans and brokers if they
ultimately reduce fees on transactions to
maintain or grow market share.
“I look forward very much to seeing
how it works out and embracing it,” Ros-
ner said. “Competition is always good for
the consumer, right?”
Ticketmaster puts resale, unsold tickets in one spot
MIAMI (AP) — The cable spy
drama “Burn Notice” is coming
to an end, but it’s certainly not
being burned itself.
The USA Network series —
still strong in the ratings and
popular with fans after seven
seasons — gets a big finale
Set and filmed almost
entirely in South Florida, the
series has centered on the
exploits of superspy Michael
Westen, who was framed for
crimes he didn’t commit,
unceremoniously kicked out
of the CIA and dumped in his
hometown of Miami.
Over more than a hundred
episodes, Westen, his friends
and family have hunted down
those who got him burned,
brought his enemies to justice
and helped many innocent
victims along the way. Now,
the cast and crew members
who brought “Burn Notice” to
life are saying goodbye.
Series creator and executive
producer Matt Nix said he and
the other writers have been plan-
ning the finale since last year.
“One thing I’m really grate-
ful for is the opportunity to
go out on our own terms and
bring the story to a satisfying
conclusion,” Nix said. “Know-
ing that this was our final sea-
son, it gave us the opportunity
to really tie things up.”
The term ‘Burn Notice’ hails
from the world of espionage as
notice given by an intelligence
agency to other agencies that a
person has become unreliable
and his information should be
“burned” or dismissed. In short,
it’s a way to put a spy out into the
cold, whether merited or not.
The series has always bal-
anced a story of the week with
the larger narrative elements of
who burned Michael and why.
“The show is about Michael
Westen learning to be a human
being,” Nix said. “Reconnect-
ing with his family and friends
and romantic relationships is a
big part of that.”
But all the progress Westen
has made in rebuilding those
relationships has been strained
to the breaking point in the
final season. The stories of the
week have taken a back seat to
one, big 13-episode arc. Once
again working for the CIA,
Westen has been trying to infil-
trate an international terrorist
organization. The problem is
that Westen has started to lose
track of who his real friends are
and whether he’s fighting for
the right side.
Westen’s choice and the
subsequent consequences will
be revealed in the finale.
“I think it’s a fitting ending
because it’s what I know the
fans wanted,” series star Jeffrey
Donovan said. “It’s very fitting
for what the show started as in
While the ending may be
appropriate, that doesn’t mean
it will be completely happy.
Donovan’s co-star Gabrielle
Anwar, who plays Westen’s on-
again-off-again girlfriend, said
she was satisfied with her own
character’s fate but felt differ-
ently about another.
“There’s one character in
particular that I’m sort of still
devastated by,” Anwar said.
“I’m reeling; I’m grieving; I’m
Executive producer Terry
Miller acknowledged that seven
years is a long time for a crew to
stay together in the television
business, but he couldn’t help
feeling a little sentimental.
“We’ve had babies born.
We’ve had people pass away,”
Miller said. “We’ve had mar-
riages. We’ve had divorces. It’s
like a family.”
B-movie legend Bruce Camp-
bell, who plays Westen’s best
friend, said he wasn’t so senti-
mental, noting everything comes
to an end. Still, despite his sta-
tus as a horror icon thanks to
the “Evil Dead” trilogy and other
films, Campbell considers “Burn
Notice” the most successful proj-
ect he’s ever been part of.
“We’re going out strong, and
that’s exactly how you want
it,” Campbell said. “We’re all
geniuses right now. That’s how
you want to go out, as a genius,
not an idiot.”
Consistently good writing
has led to solid ratings over the
years, Campbell said. That’s
led to a string of well-known
guest stars swinging down to
Miami for a week or two to be
bad guys on the show.
Past villains include Eric
Roberts (“The Dark Knight”),
John Mahoney (“Frasier”),
Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior
Princess”), Tricia Helfer (“Bat-
tlestar Galactica”) and Danny
Trejo (“Machete”), to name a
few. Though not a villain, Burt
Reynolds also guest-starred as
a former Cold War spy.
“Burn Notice” has averaged
between 4 million and 5 mil-
lion viewers since it began,
with a handful of episodes
topping 6 million viewers. The
series premiered in 2007 as the
top, new, scripted cable series.
In 2009, it became the most-
watched, scripted series ever
on basic cable in the coveted
‘Burn Notice’ set to end after 7 seasons in Miami
Jeffrey Donovan prepares July 24 for a rehearsal for an
episode of “Burn Notice” in Miami. The cable spy drama
is coming to an end after seven seasons with a big finale
