13 killed in Navy Yard rampage
WASHINGTON (AP) — A former Navy
reservist went on a shooting rampage
Monday inside a building at the heav-
ily secured Washington Navy
Yard, firing from a balcony onto
office workers in an atrium below,
authorities and witnesses said.
Thirteen people were killed,
including the gunman.
Authorities said they were look-
ing for a possible second attacker
who may have been disguised in
an olive-drab military-style uni-
But as the day wore on and
night fell, the rampage increas-
ingly appeared to be the work of a lone
Late Monday night, D.C. Police Chief
Cathy Lanier says authorities believe there
was only a lone gunman responsible.
The attack unfolded about 8:20 a.m. in
the heart of the nation’s capital, less than
four miles from the White House
and two miles from the Capitol.
Investigators said the motive
was a mystery.
Mayor Vincent Gray said there
was no indication it was a terror-
ist attack. But he said the possibil-
ity had not been ruled out.
It was the deadliest shooting at
a military installation in the U.S.
since Maj. Nidal Hasan killed 13
people and wounded more than
30 in 2009 at Fort Hood in Texas.
He was convicted last month and sen-
tenced to death.
President Barack Obama lamented yet
another mass shooting in the U.S. that he
said took the lives of American “patriots.”
He promised to make sure “whoever car-
ried out this cowardly act is held respon-
The FBI took charge of the investiga-
tion and identified the gunman killed in
the attack as 34-year-old Aaron Alexis of
Texas. He died after a running gunbattle
inside the building with police, investiga-
tors said.
At the time of the rampage, Alexis was
working in information technology with a
company that was a Defense Department
Authorities said he may have had a
badge that enabled him to get onto the
base, but they were still investigating.
Alexis was a full-time Navy reserv-

Public speaks
on conference
center issue
Most back downtown
location; others say wait
By Madeleine Leroux
A majority of comments Monday sup-
port a proposed conference center be
located downtown, instead of an alternate
location at Capital Mall.
Nine people spoke at Monday’s City
Council meeting during the first of sev-
eral public hearings on the city’s latest
attempt to build a conference center. The
City Council is considering two propos-
als for a conference
center from the Jef-
ferson City-based
Farmer Develop-
ment, which would
place the facility
at the Capital Mall
site, and the Hanni-
bal-based Ehrhardt
Hospitality Group,
which would place
it on West McCarty
Former Mayor
John Landwehr
spoke in favor of
the downtown site,
noting voters were
shown a downtown
site when the lodging tax was passed and
adding that the passage of the tax showed
community support for the conference
center project.
“In my opinion the tax would not have
passed if there had not been a location
indicated, or if the location was not down-
town,” Landwehr said. “If someone sug-
gests the community does not support a
conference center, they’re just wrong. The
community has spoken.”
“Don’t spend $9 million of tax payer
money on a secondary location just
because it’s easier and faster.”
Leonard Steinman said if the wrong
location is chosen, the whole project may
as well be thrown out the door.
“If you want to build it, build it big,”

boats take up station in the Washington Navy Yard after

U.S House likely to consider
food stamps bill this week
By Bob Watson
The U.S. House is scheduled to
debate Wednesday on its version
of the food stamps bill, known
officially as the “Supple-
mental Nutrition Assis-
tance Program,” or SNAP,
U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetke-
meyer said Monday.
For years, the federal
food stamps program was
part of the national farm
bill, which authorizes
various federal programs
to assist the nation’s agri-
culture and agribusiness
“For the first time in 40 years,
we de-coupled the food stamps
from the farm bill,” Luetkemeyer,
R-St. Elizabeth, told about two
dozen Mid-Missourians attending
Monday’s Rotary luncheon. “And
I was a big supporter of doing
that, against the Farm Bureau’s
wishes ... believing that, we help
ourselves with the (negotiating)
leverage when we go to confer-
ence” with the U.S. Senate over its
version of the bill.
Luetkemeyer said the
Senate-passed farm bill
includes food stamps as in
past years, but the Senate
bill is “not where we want
to be.”
The House-passed
farm bill “did away with
subsidies (and) we go back
to using crop insurance as
the fall-back position for
farmers,” he added. “It’s a
good bill, (and) I think it’s going
to change the way we do the farm
programs in this country.”
Both the Missouri and Ameri-
can Farm Bureaus want Congress
to keep the food stamps program

School board wants
more diverse staff
By Kris Hilgedick
Jefferson City Public School
leaders are working to recruit
more faculty members who reflect
the makeup of the student body,
but the district hasn’t yet seen a
marked increase in the diversity
of the workforce.
The district employs 1,197 full-
time employees and 140 part-time
employees in a variety of capaci-
ties, the Jefferson City Board of
Education learned Monday night.
This school year 94 percent of
the full-time workforce was white
and 6 percent were minorities.
About 10 percent of the district’s
part-time workers are minorities.
“Our numbers look pretty close
to last year’s,” said Penny Rec-
tor, the district’s legal counsel
and human resources director.
“It’s an area we want to grow and
improve. We want to diversify our

origin; or a mix of two or more
races. Of that number, the major-

In Cole County, about 16 per-
cent of the population is consid-

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bob Newhart, among TV’s most
enduring stars with shows stretching back more than
five decades, wept as he finally captured his first Emmy
Newhart, 84, was honored at Sunday’s creative arts
Emmy ceremony for his guest role last season on “The Big
Bang Theory” as Professor Proton, a down-on-his-luck
former host of a children’s science show.
“This is my seventh shot at this. ... I just love this very
much,” he said, gazing tearfully at the trophy in his hand
as the audience gave him a standing ovation.
Newhart’s long TV history includes the 1970s “The Bob
Newhart Show,” “Newhart” in the 1980s and “Bob” in the
‘90s and six previous nominations. His 1961 variety series
“The Bob Newhart Show” earned a writing bid.
Backstage, Newhart said at one point he’d given up
submitting his name for Emmy consideration. “I just felt
the kind of stuff I do doesn’t win awards. I didn’t want to
go through the process, the disappointment,” he said.
NEW YORK (AP) — Billboard has named Pink its
woman of the year.
Billboard announced Monday that the pop singer will
receive the honor at its annual Women in Music event
Dec. 10 in New York City.
Pink’s sixth album, “The Truth About Love,” has sold
1.7 million albums since it was released last year. It
launched three Top 10 hits, including the No. 1 jam “Just
Give Me a Reason.”
Past recipients of Billboard’s woman of the year award
include Beyonce, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.
Pink is currently on her international “The Truth
About Love Tour.”
NEW YORK (AP) — A wrecking ball has hit Miley Cyrus
and Liam Hemsworth’s relationship.
Representatives for both celebrities confirmed Mon-
day that the couple have called off their engagement.
The 23-year-old Hemsworth proposed to 20-year-old
Cyrus last year. They met on the set of the 2010 movie
“The Last Song.”
Their breakup was first reported by People magazine.

the Capital Mall location also
was not ideal as it is too far out
from the city’s core.

man asked, noting times have
changed since the lodging tax
was passed. “Let’s put this mat-
ter to a vote of the people.”
Glen Costales said council
members should seek to leave
a great legacy, which is not
achieved by building or subsi-
dizing a facility at the expense
of the taxpayers.
Comments at the hearing
were limited to four topics
related to the conference cen-
ter: the desirability of one pro-
posal over the other, including
location; facilities the public
would like to have in a con-
ference center; the amount of
subsidy, if any, to be provided
for a conference center beyond
the $9 million contribution;
and the desirability of having
the city finance and provide
parking at either location.
The next public hearing is
set for noon Thursday at City
Hall. A third public hearing will
be held at 5:30 p.m Sept. 23 at
City Hall. Comments at both
meetings will be limited to five
minutes per person.
People wishing to speak at
any public hearing are encour-
aged to sign up in advance by

as part of the farm bill, and
as part of the U.S. Agriculture
department operations.
“The Farm Bill” is something
that’s very important to much,
much of the country and the
agricultural community,” Luet-
kemeyer acknowledged.
But, The Associated Press
reported, many conservatives
believed the cuts to the nearly
$80 billion-a-year food stamp
program weren’t high enough
in the original, House-pro-
posed farm bill.
It would have cut food
stamps assistance only by
about $2 billion a year.
“Basically what we’ve done
is to take away the connectiv-
ity between food stamps and
other programs,” Luetkemeyer
told the Rotary members.
“Right now, you can qualify
for food stamps if you get a
heating subsidy — and there’s
other programs like that,”
where someone can get food
stamps even if they don’t meet
the government’s income qual-
“If you just de-couple those,
you can save between $20 bil-
lion and $40 billion,” he said.
“I think our program is looking
at $40 billion, which means
you’ve got $40 billion going out
to people who don’t qualify for
it now.
“Until that passes, the
Speaker’s not going to assign
any conferees to the confer-
ence” committee to negotiate
differences between the House
and Senate-passed measures.
One in seven Americans use
food stamps, The AP reported,
and the costs of the program
have more than doubled in the
past five years.
Luetkemeyer told reporters
Monday the Republican-con-
trolled U.S. House is working
from an overall “set of prin-
cipals that we, in the House,
have. For instance, on our bud-
get, we’re not going to allow
more taxing.
“We believe our tax rates
are high enough; if we can get
some of our policies in place,
which are less taxing and
less spending, I think we can
improve the situation.”
Failure to keep the farm bill
and food stamps bill separate
could doom both in Congress,
he said.

Food stamps:
inspectors said Monday there is
“clear and convincing evidence” that
chemical weapons were used on a
relatively large scale in an attack last
month in Syria that killed hundreds
of people.
The findings represent the first
official confirmation by scientific
experts that chemical weapons were
used in Syria’s civil war, but the report
left the key question of who launched
the attack unanswered.
The rebels and their U.S. and West-
ern supporters have said the regime
of President Bashar Assad was behind
the Aug. 21 attack, while the Syrian
government and its closest ally, Rus-
sia, blame the rebels.
U.S., British and French diplomats
said the findings of the U.N. inspec-
tors supported their conclusion that
Assad regime was to blame. Russia
Secretary of State John Kerry
briefed U.S. allies on a broad agree-
ment reached over the weekend with
Russia to end Syria’s chemical weap-
ons program, pressing for broad sup-
port for the plan that averted U.S. mil-
itary strikes. Kerry met in Paris with
his counterparts from France, Britain,
Turkey and Saudi Arabia before seek-
ing a U.N. resolution that would detail
how the international community can
secure and destroy Syria’s stockpile
and precursor chemicals.
As a sign of possible difficulties
ahead, Kerry and Russian Foreign
Minister Sergey Lavrov sparred Mon-
day over possible military action if
Syria doesn’t abandon its chemical
And in Geneva, the chairman of
a U.N. war crimes panel said it is
investigating 14 suspected chemical
attacks in Syria, dramatically escalat-
ing the stakes. Paulo Sergio Pinheiro
said the panel had not pinpointed the
chemical used or who is responsible.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
presented the U.N. inspectors’ report
to a closed meeting of the U.N. Secu-
rity Council before its release.
“This is a war crime and a grave
violation of ... international law,”
Ban told the council in remarks dis-
tributed to the press. “The results
are overwhelming and indisputable.
The facts speak for themselves. ...
The international community has a
responsibility to hold the perpetra-
tors accountable and to ensure that
chemical weapons never re-emerge
as an instrument of warfare.”
The inspectors’ report said “the
environmental, chemical and medi-
cal samples we have collected pro-
vide clear and convincing evidence
that surface-to-surface rockets con-
taining the nerve agent sarin were
used ... in the Ghouta area of Damas-
cus” on Aug. 21.
“The conclusion is that chemical
weapons have been used in the ongo-
ing conflict between the parties in the
Syrian Arab Republic, also against
civilians, including children, on a
relatively large scale,” the inspectors
said in their report to Ban.

JCPS recruits its employees. She
said she’s engaged in “regular
communication” with the LU
faculty to explain what the dis-
trict is looking for in a qualified
teaching applicant.
She also noted that, since
January, the district has imple-
mented the “Netchamia Talent
Ed” application system, which
allows administrators to do
a much better job of keeping
track of who is applying to the
Since it has been imple-
mented, 2,112 applications
have been received for open-
ings in the district and many of
those people applied for two or
more positions.
Of the applications received,
114 people have been hired
by the Jefferson City Public
Schools. Most of the people
who were hired come from the
University of Missouri, LU or
the University of Central Mis-
“That’s no surprise; they are
here in the area,” Rector said.
Most of them were referred
by other employees, but 16
were recruited at job fairs. And
the district’s website was the
best place to search for jobs,
Rector added.
Of the people who applied,
85 percent were white, 5 per-
cent were black and about 9
percent didn’t indicate a race.
Understanding how employ-
ees learn about job openings
and get recommended for posi-
tions helps her do her job, she
“This helps us determine
what modalities make the most
sense,” she told the school
Rector also updated board
members about why employees
leave the district. According to
exit surveys, more than 65 per-
cent retire and about 20 percent
moved away from the school
district. The rest said they left
for a variety of reasons, from
“accepting a teaching posi-
tion” in another community, to
“continuing my education” to
“entering private industry.”
According to the survey,
none reported leaving because
they were dissatisfied with the
working conditions, salary, co-
workers, etc.
Marie Peoples, who serves
on the school board, said she
believes the situation vis-a-vis
minority hiring is improving.
“We hear we are not get-
ting applicants, but 15 percent
of the applicants are minori-
ties,” she said, adding: “It’s not
just students who need to be
comfortable with the staff, staff
have to be comfortable with the
students they teach.”

CDC anti-smoking ads dies
ATLANTA (AP) — A North
Carolina woman featured
prominently in a graphic gov-
ernment ad campaign to get
people to stop smoking died
Monday of cancer.
Terrie Hall died at a hospital
in Winston-Salem, N.C., federal
officials said. She was 53.
“She was a public health
hero,” said Dr. Tom Frieden,
director of the Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention.
“She may well have saved more
lives than most doctors do.”
A former smoker whose
voice box was removed years
ago, Hall took a leading role
in the campaign that showed
how smoking-related cancer
ravages the body.
Hall’s first ad showed her
putting on a wig, putting in
false teeth and covering a hole
in her throat with a scarf. It was
the campaign’s most popular
spot by far, receiving more than
2.8 million views on YouTube.
In another ad, the Lexington
resident addressed the camera
in the buzzing sound of her
artificial voice box. She advised
smokers to make a video of
themselves reading a children’s
book or singing a lullaby. “I wish
I had. The only voice my grand-
son’s ever heard is this one,”
her electric voice growled.

Price monitor
The Labor Department reports its
latest data on U.S. consumer
prices today.
Economists anticipate that the
consumer price index ticked up
0.2 percent in August, the same
rate of growth as in the previous
month. While gas prices have
been rising recently, overall
inflation remains mild. The trend
could make it easier for the Fed to
start pulling back on its
low-interest-rate policies.
Builder confidence
U.S. homebuilders’ confidence in
the housing market has improved
steadily as sales of new homes
have increased this year.
The National Association of
Home Builders/Wells Fargo Hous-
ing Market Index hit 59 last month,
the highest in nearly eight years.
The latest builder confidence
index is due out today. Econo-
mists will be watching to see if
rising mortgage rates are dampen-
ing builders’ optimism.
Shrinking profit?
Wall Street expects Adobe
Systems’ profit shrank from a year
ago in its fiscal third quarter.
The company, which makes
popular software like Adobe
Reader and Photoshop, is due to
release its latest quarterly report
card today. Adobe has been
shifting its business to a subscrip-
tion format, which has helped
boost revenue. At the same time,
its costs have grown. In July, it
closed on its $600 million
acquisition of French marketing
technology company Neolane.

Wall Street was happy

From the Associated Press
Stocks rose on Monday after Summers, who had
been the leading candidate to replace Federal Reserve
chairman Ben Bernanke, withdrew his name from con-
Summers, a former Treasury secretary, was viewed
as being more likely to rein in the government’s massive
stimulus program, which has kept interest rates low and
boosted corporate profits.
Stocks were also helped by news that U.S. factory
output rose 0.7 percent in August, the most in eight
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 118.72 points,
or 0.8 percent, to close at 15,494.78. The Standard & Poor’s
500 index rose 9.61 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,697.60. The
Nasdaq composite fell 4.34 points, a fraction of a percent,
to 3,717.85, pulled down by a loss in Apple.
Nine of 10 sectors in the S&P 500 rose, led by industrial

Big-business leaders talk tax code at summit
BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Max
Baucus said Monday that his effort to
revamp the tax code helped attract some of
the business world’s biggest names to Mon-
tana for a jobs conference that touched on
taxes, energy development and many other
Baucus opened the Montana Jobs Sum-
mit in Butte — an old mining town almost
a century removed from its heyday — with
the leaders of companies such as Google
Inc., Facebook, Ford Motor Co., FedEx
Corp., The Boeing Co. and others.
Several thousand business people, poli-
ticians, academics and others registered
to hear speeches and hobnob with the
Baucus, a veteran Democrat, told report-
ers that he was discussing his longshot
bipartisan effort to revamp the tax code
with the corporate leaders.
Baucus, with Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich.,
are trying to build on sentiment inside and
outside of Congress that the tax code is too
complicated for individuals and too oner-
ous for businesses.
But significant differences among Dem-
ocrats and Republicans over how much
tax revenue the government should raise
and who should pay it threaten to scuttle
the effort.
Baucus said the CEOs agree with the
mission to reduce tax rates and “broaden-
ing the base” by getting rid of exemptions
and loopholes, and he expects to discuss
the issue with other business leaders at the
summit. Baucus said the top corporate tax
rate is among the highest in the world.
“There is no question, if we can reform
the code it will help American competitive-
ness in the world,” Baucus said.
Business leaders agreed.
“If the people in this audience and the
people of Montana and the people of the
United State want to invigorate the Ameri-
can economy, there is a very straightfor-
ward path to do so and that is get with
Sen. Max Baucus and reform the tax code,”
FedEx CEO Fred Smith told the audience.
He said the country needs to “get rid of
all these special deals” in the tax code that

cautioned policymakers against doing any-
thing that would reward favored sectors or
punish others.
“It is important to be industry blind,”

ners and losers in the process.”
Other issues that came up at the confer-
ence included gender equity; balancing
risk when building a company; and the role

Extreme binge drinking
not uncommon
in high school
CHICAGO (AP) — Almost 1
in 10 U.S. high school seniors
have engaged in recent extreme
binge drinking — downing at
least 10 drinks at a rate that
barely budged over six years,
according to a government-
funded report.
Less severe binge drinking,
consuming five or more drinks
in a row, has mostly declined
in recent years among teens.
But for high school seniors, the
2011 rate for 10 drinks in a row
— 9.6 percent — was down
only slightly from 2005.
The most extreme level
— 15 or more drinks in a row
within the past two weeks
— didn’t change from 2005 to
2011. Almost 6 percent of high
school seniors reported recent-
ly drinking that amount.
The number of seniors
engaging in the most extreme
drinking “is really concerning
because they’re most at risk for
the really severe consequenc-
es,” including reckless driving,
car accidents and alcohol poi-
soning, said lead researcher
Megan Patrick of the Univer-
sity of Michigan’s Institute for
Social Research.
Extreme binge drink-
ing may be a behavior that’s
“more entrenched” among
some teens, and thus harder to
change, Patrick said.
The new report is an analy-
sis of survey results that the
university does for the Nation-
al Institute on Drug Abuse.
It’s based on classroom ques-
tionnaires given to more than
16,000 high school seniors;
a question on extreme binge
drinking was added in 2005.
Whites and males were the
most likely to engage in all
levels of binge drinking, the
report found. Students with
more educated parents had
higher rates of binge drinking
than other kids, but lower rates
of extreme binge drinking.
Extreme binge drinking was
most common in rural areas
and the Midwest and least
common in the West.
The report was published
online Monday in JAMA Pedi-
Young adults generally have
higher levels of extreme drinking;
a 2012 survey by the same group
found that more than 1 in 4 peo-
ple aged 19 to 30 had recently
consumed at least 10 drinks in a
row and more than 1 in 10 had at
least 15 drinks in a row.
A journal editorial says the
new report may help explain
why hospitalizations for
alcohol and drug overdoses
among teens and young adults
have increased in recent years
despite ongoing declines in
less severe binge drinking.
In the early 1980s, before
all states made 21 the mini-
mum legal drinking age, more
than 40 percent of high school
seniors said they had recently
downed more than five drinks
in a row, according to data
cited in the editorial.
The 5-plus binge drinking
rate steadily declined in more
recent years for seniors, to 22
percent in 2011, although it was
24 percent in 2012, according to
a previous report from the sur-
vey group. The new report has
slightly different percentages
because it is based on a sub-
group of previous surveys. Sur-
vey results for 2012 on extreme
binge drinking among seniors
haven’t been published yet.
Homeless man turns in backpack
filled with money, traveler’s checks
BOSTON (AP) — A homeless
Boston man who police said
turned in a backpack contain-
ing tens of thousands of dollars
in cash and traveler’s checks
said even if he were desperate
he wouldn’t have kept “even a
Boston Police Commission-
er Edward Davis honored Glen
James on Monday, giving him
a special citation and thanking
him for an “extraordinary show
of character and honesty.”
James said in a handwrit-
ten statement he gave out at a
news conference that he was
glad to make sure the bag and
its contents were returned to
the owner.
“Even if I were desperate for
money, I would not have kept
even a penny,” he said.
James, who said he once
worked as a Boston courthouse
employee, found the backpack
at the South Bay Mall in the
city’s Dorchester neighborhood
Saturday evening. He flagged
down a police officer and hand-
ed it over. Inside the backpack
was $2,400 in U.S. currency,
almost $40,000 in traveler’s
checks, Chinese passports and
other personal papers.
The man who lost it told
workers at a nearby Best Buy
store at the mall and they
called police. Officers then
brought the backpack’s owner
to a nearby police station and
returned his property after
confirming it belonged to him.
Authorities said that the
backpack’s owner didn’t want
his identity made public, but
that he was a Chinese student
who was visiting another stu-
dent in Boston.
James, who didn’t give his
age, said he is from the Boston
area and has been homeless
since 2005. A police spokes-
woman said authorities don’t
know his age either, but said
James is staying at a city home-
less shelter and that many
people have expressed interest
in helping him since hearing
about his good deed.
The Good Samaritan said in
his statement that he worked as
a file clerk in Boston’s munici-
pal courthouse for 13 years,
but lost his job and became
homeless after problems with
his boss. James said it would be
difficult for him to hold down
a job because he suffers from
Meniere’s disease, which the
Mayo Clinic describes as an
inner ear disorder that causes
episodes of vertigo.
James said that he doesn’t
want to be a burden to his
relatives and that people at the
shelter help him. He said God
has always looked after him.
James gets food stamps and
panhandles to make money to
do laundry, to pay for trans-
portation and buy other “odds
and ends,” he said.
On Monday, he also thanked
the strangers who have given
him spare change on the
“It’s just nice to have some
money in one’s pocket so that
as a homeless man I don’t feel
absolutely broke all the time,”
he said.
Colorado evacuees return
to find more heartbreak
— Weary Colorado evacuees
have begun returning home
after days of rain and flooding,
but Monday’s clearing skies
and receding waters revealed
only more heartbreak: toppled
houses, upended vehicles and
a stinking layer of muck cover-
ing everything.
Rescuers grounded by
weekend rains took advantage
of the break in the weather
to resume searches for people
still stranded, with 21 heli-
copters fanning out over the
mountainsides and the plains
to drop supplies and airlift
those who need help.
The confirmed death toll
stood at four, with two women
missing and presumed dead.
The number of missing
people was difficult to pin-
point, but it has been decreas-
ing. The state’s count fell Mon-
day from just over 1,200 to
about half that. State officials
hoped the overall number
would continue to drop with
rescuers reaching more peo-
ple and phone service being
“You’ve got to remember,
a lot of these folks lost cell-
phones, landlines, the Inter-
net four to five days ago,” Gov.

hopeful that the vast majority
of these people are safe and

administrator Frank Lancaster
The town of Lyons was
almost completely abandoned.
Emergency crews gave the few
remaining residents, mostly
wandering Main Street look-
ing for status updates, a final
warning to leave Sunday.
Most of the town’s trail-
er parks were completely
destroyed. One angry man was
throwing his possessions one
by one into the river rushing
along one side of his trailer on
Sunday, watching the brown
water carry them away while
drinking a beer.
State emergency officials
offered a first glimpse at the
scope of the damage, with
counties reporting about
19,000 homes either damaged
or destroyed.
Those preliminary figures
are certain to change as the
waters continue to recede and
roads are cleared to allow crews
to access more areas.
— One and possibly two pris-
on guards apparently falsified
an electronic log documenting
checks on a death row inmate
who committed suicide just
days before his execution was to
go forward, according to an Ohio
prison report released Monday.
Video evidence shows pris-
on rounds started later than
indicated by the log and came
in one-hour increments instead
of every half hour as ordered
for that unit, the report says.
The report also says all six
officers on death row units that
night were relief officers without
training specific to death row,
and one of the two officers was
still on probationary status.
The nine-page review does
not say whether the guards, if
they had followed the rules,
could have prevented the Aug.
4 death row suicide of con-
demned killer Billy Slagle. Sla-
gle was just minutes away from
being placed on close observa-
tion that is mandatory in the
72 hours before an execution.
His Aug. 7 execution
appeared on track despite the
plea for mercy from the pros-
ecutor in Cuyahoga County,
home to Cleveland, who argued
that Slagle should never have
received a death sentence.
Prosecutor Tim McGinty
cited Slagle’s age — he was just
18 when he fatally stabbed his
neighbor Mari Anne Pope —
and had a long history of drug
and alcohol addiction. McGinty
said under his office’s current
policy he would not have pur-
sued a death penalty charge.
The report comes at a time
of heightened awareness of
prison suicides in Ohio. An
inmate at Lebanon Correction-
al Facility in southwest Ohio
committed suicide last week,
just days after convicted Cleve-
land kidnapper and rapist Ariel
Castro hanged himself in his
cell with a bedsheet on Sept. 3.
Slagle, 44, also died not
knowing that his attorneys
planned a last-minute appeal,
based on evidence provided by
McGinty that Slagle had been
offered a plea deal before his
1988 trial but his original attor-
neys never informed him.
The two corrections officers
named in the review have been
placed on paid administrative
leave as the prisons agency
investigates. Someone “did fal-
sify the electronic log book for
rounds,” the report said.

Shipwrecked Concordia wrested off Italian reef
— Using a vast system of steel
cables and pulleys, maritime
engineers on Monday gingerly
winched the massive hull of the
Costa Concordia off the Italian
reef the cruise ship had struck in
January 2012.
But progress in pulling the
heavily listing luxury liner to an
upright position was going much
slower than expected. Delays
meant the delicate operation
— originally scheduled from
dawn to dusk Monday — was
not expected to be completed
before Tuesday morning.
“Things are going like they
should, but on a timetable that
is dragging out,” Franco Gabriel-
li, head of Italy’s Civil Protection
Agency, said Monday evening.
Never before has such an
enormous cruise ship been
righted. Salvage workers strug-
gled to overcome obstacle after
obstacle as they slowly inched
toward their goal of raising the
crippled ship 65 degrees to the
upright position.
An early morning storm
delayed the salvage command
barge from getting into place
for several hours. Later, some
of the cables dragging the ship’s
hull upright went slack, forcing
engineers to climb the hull to
fix them.
The Concordia itself didn’t
budge for the first three hours
after the operation began,
engineer Sergio Girotto told
The initial operation to
lift the ship moved it just 3
degrees toward vertical. After
10 hours, the crippled ship had
edged upward by just under 13
degrees, a fraction of what had
been expected.
Still, the top engineers were
staying positive.
“Even if it’s 15 to 18 hours,
we’re OK with that. We are happy
with the way things are going,”
Girotto said.
After some 6,000 tons of
force were applied — using a
complex system of pulleys and
counterweights — Girotto said
“we saw the detachment” of the
ship’s hull from the reef thanks
to undersea cameras.
At the waterline, a few feet
of slime-covered ship that had
been underwater slowly became
Thirty-two people died on
Jan. 13, 2012, when the Con-
cordia slammed into a reef and
toppled half-submerged on its
side after coming too close to
Giglio Island. The reef sliced a
230-foot gash into what is now
the exposed side off the hull, let-
ting seawater rush in.
The resulting tilt was so dras-
tic that many lifeboats couldn’t
be launched. Dozens of the
4,200 passengers and crew were
plucked to safety by helicop-
ters or jumped into the sea and
swam to shore. The bodies of
many of the dead were retrieved
inside the ship.
Girotto said the cameras on
Monday did not immediately
reveal any sign of the two bodies
that were never recovered.
Engineers have dismissed as
“remote” the possibility that the
Concordia might break apart
during the salvage operation
but set out absorbent barriers to
catch any leaks of toxic materi-
als from the ship.
Images transmitted Monday
by robotic diving vehicles indi-
cated the submerged side of the
cruise ship’s hull had suffered
“great deformation” from all its
time on the granite seabed, bat-
tered by waves and compressed
under the weight of the ship’s
115,000 tons, Girotto said.
The salvage operation,
known in nautical parlance as
parbuckling, was used on the
USS Oklahoma in 1943 after the
Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
More than 6,200
flee as Indonesian
volcano erupts
MEDAN, Indonesia (AP)
— More than 6,200 people
were evacuated from their vil-
lages following the eruption
of Mount Sinabung in west-
ern Indonesia, an official said
The 8,530-feet volcano in
North Sumatra province erupted
early Sunday after being dormant
for three years, sending thick ash
into the sky with small rocks pelt-
ing neighboring villages.
National Disaster Mitiga-
tion Agency spokesman Sutopo
Purwo Nugroho said a total of
6.259 people have been evacu-
ated as of Monday afternoon,
and were being sheltered in
eight locations. No damage
was reported.
The official Antara news
agency reported that five
people were hospitalized in
Kabanjahe, the capital of Karo
District. It quoted Jhonson
Tarigan, a spokesman of the
local disaster mitigation agen-
cy, as saying the five were hav-
ing difficulty breathing after
inhaling volcanic ash.
Most of the displaced were
from six villages within several
miles of the mountain in Karo
district, Nugroho said.
Local authorities prepared
2,000 blankets and distributed
masks to displaced people.
They also have set up a health
command post, Nugroho said.
He added there was an urgent
need for cooking ware, food for
babies and medicine.
On Monday, gray smoke
still billowed from the peak
of North Sumatra’s tallest vol-
cano, carrying ash eastward.
Authorities asked residents to
remain alert for other potential
The Costa Concordia ship lies on its side Monday on the
Tuscan Island of Giglio, Italy. Engineers succeeded in
wresting the hull of the ship from the Italian reef where it
has been stuck since it capsized in January 2012, leaving
them cautiously optimistic they can rotate the luxury liner
upright and eventually tow it away.
Russian nuke sub catches fire
MOSCOW (AP) — Fire broke out on a Russian nuclear subma-
rine undergoing repairs, but no injuries or radiation leaks have
been reported.
Russian news reports said the Monday fire on the Tomsk sub-
marine at repair yards in the Pacific Coast city of Bolshoi Kamen
was extinguished with foam.
The Tomsk, capable of firing cruise missiles, has been under-
going repairs since 2010. Reports said all its weaponry had been
removed and that the reactor was shut down, although it was not
clear if any nuclear material remained in the reactor.
Turkey says it shot down Syrian helicopter
ISTANBUL (AP) — A Turkish fighter jet shot down a Syrian
military helicopter on Monday after it entered Turkish airspace
and ignored repeated warnings to leave, an official said.
The helicopter strayed more than 1 mile into Turkish air-
space, but crashed inside Syria after being hit by missiles fired
from the jet, Turkey’s deputy prime minister, Bulent Arinc, told
reporters in Ankara.
Arinc said he did not have any information on the fate of the
Syrian pilots, but Rami Abdul-Rahman, director of the Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights, said rebel fighters captured one
of the pilots, while the fate of the other one was unclear.
4.8-magnitude quake rattles central Greece
ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Seismologists say a 4.8-magnitude
earthquake has rattled central Greece, but there were no imme-
diate reports of injuries or damage.
The Athens Geodynamic Institute said the quake occurred at
6:01 p.m. on Monday, about 110 miles northwest of Athens, near
the coastal town of Kammena Vourla.
Cuba, US discuss direct mail service
HAVANA (AP) — U.S. and Cuban representatives met in
Havana on Monday for renewed talks on re-establishing direct
mail service, 50 years after it was severed amid Cold War tensions
The American delegation was led by Lea Emerson, executive
director for international postal affairs at the U.S. Postal Service,
and included State Department officials. They met with counter-
parts from Cuba’s postal agency and Foreign Ministry.
Wide-open Afghan presidential race kicks off
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghanistan’s presidential race
kicked off Monday as election authorities began accepting the
nominations of would-be candidates, the start of a wide-open
race whose winner will oversee the final phases of the withdraw-
al of U.S.-led troops amid a relentless Taliban insurgency.
The first day of registration drew ... no one.
No major candidates are expected to submit their nomina-
tions until closer to the Oct. 6 deadline, part of a waiting game to
see how the field shapes up.
Haiti a step closer to having army again
closer on Monday to reconstituting a military that was abolished
in 1995.
In a small ceremony in the farming village of Petite Rivere de
L’Aritibonite, Defense Minister Jean-Rodolphe Joazile greeted
the first 41 recruits who recently returned from eight months of
training in Ecuador. They will be the first members of a national
military force that the government of President Michel Martelly
wants to revive.
Joazile said they will spend three months working alongside
Ecuadorean military engineers among the rice fields in central
Haiti to repair roads and work on other public service projects
in their impoverished country, which was hit by a devastating
earthquake three years ago.
Egyptian forces storm southern town
CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian security forces backed by armored
vehicles and helicopters on Monday stormed a town south of
Cairo that had been held for over two months by militants loyal
to the ousted Islamist president, swiftly taking control despite
some resistance from gunmen.
The pre-dawn operation to retake Dalga in Minya province
highlighted the resolve of the military-backed government to
pursue Islamic militants behind a wave of violence in several
parts of the country following the ouster of Mohammed Morsi in
a popularly backed July 3 military coup. Minya in particular suf-
fered a collapse of security, with militants torching and looting
courthouses, churches, local government buildings and police

A Jefferson City man was sentenced to seven
years in prison after pleading guilty to child
abuse for shoving a 4-year-old boy into a show-
er and running freezing cold water on the child
in February.
According to Jefferson City Police, Devin
Benke, 27, put the boy in the shower after the
child had spilled a bowl of cereal during break-
Benke grabbed the boy by the arm and
shoved him down several times leaving mul-
tiple bruises and a large laceration on the boy’s
chin, the report said. Benke then put the boy in
the bathtub and turned the shower on the dial
set as cold as it would go.
Missouri American Water reported the water
line to be at 41.7 degrees on that date.
Benke left the victim in the water for an
extended period of time. When Benke returned,
he found the boy was cold and unresponsive.
Benke tried to warm up the child with warm
water and wrapped him in towels.
Benke called the boy’s mother who came
home and took the boy to a local hospital
where his body temperature was measured at
86 degrees.
Authorities said the child made a full recovery.
As soon as Benke heard he was a suspect, he
fled the area, but was caught in Boone County a
few days after the charge was filed against him.

Luetkemeyer: Syria not winning idea;
Congress stuck on several issues
By Bob Watson
U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer
doesn’t think the United States
should get involved in Syria, but
also thinks letting the Russians
propose an international solution
hurts America’s long-term world-
wide influence.
Luetkemeyer, R-St. Elizabeth,
made those comments during a
half-hour visit Monday with a Jef-
ferson City Rotary club.
Other topics during his speech
and a question-and-answer session
included the nation’s budget, farm
bill, food stamps and complaints
about Congress and President
Barack Obama.
Luetkemeyer is in his third term
in Congress.
He said he waited until hearing
the classified briefing about Syria
and its use of chemical weapons
on civilians, before making a final
decision on supporting or opposing
U.S. military involvement there.
But, he told the Rotary members,
he had a pretty good idea even
before that briefing, and the brief-
ing didn’t add much information.
“I didn’t see an imminent
threat that was posed (to the U.S.)
by the Syrians, with their chemi-
cal weapons, since they’re fighting
among themselves at this point,”
he explained. “And I didn’t see a
way to get out of the mess, once we
got in it.

Luetkemeyer said the Obama
administration has done little to
keep good relations with long-time
U.S. allies in the region — and what
the president has done has hurt
U.S. interests.

Decomposed body found on Lake porch
Please see Events, p. 2
By the News Tribune
CAMDENTON — The decom-
posed body of an unidentified indi-
vidual was found Sunday on the
back porch of a residence north of
Camdenton, according to the Cam-
den County Sheriff’s Department.
The residence’s landlord, who had
not been in contact with the tenant
for an extended period of time, found
the decomposed body on the back
porch and called the police Sunday
afternoon, said Capt. Kelly Luttrell.
Deputies on the scene said the
body was so decomposed that it
was impossible to tell the gender
or any other details about the body,
Luttrell said.
Deputies from the Camden
County Investigation Bureau and
personnel from the medical exam-
iner’s office were also called to the
scene. The body has been taken to a
crime laboratory in Springfield.
Luttrell said no further informa-
tion will be released until the exam-
ination and the identification of the
body is complete.

Council approves
Mission Drive resolution
Dissent on issue centers on
lack of development plan
By Madeleine Leroux
After much debate, the Jefferson City Coun-
cil approved a resolution concerning a non-
binding agreement to allow a group of prop-
erty owners just outside the city limits to annex
more than 200 acres into Jefferson City.
In August, a bill was introduced to provide a
memorandum of understanding for the volun-
tary annexation in exchange for nearly $5 million
in infrastructure improvements. It was moved
to the informal calendar after several council
members indicated they wanted more time to
consider the agreement. The bill is scheduled to
die on the informal calendar Oct. 7.
At the council meeting Monday, a resolu-
tion was offered to “provide a greater com-
fort level to all parties,” and recommend to

Bernadine Pauline Sander, 98, of Moberly, passed away
peacefully on Tuesday, September 10, 2013, at Meadow Ridge
Estates in Moberly.
She was born in Elston, Missouri on June 13, 1915, one of
nine children, to Henry and Josephine (Gratz)
She spent her early years in Glasgow where
she attended Catholic school in the Aholt Bottom
north of Glasgow and later graduated from the
eighth grade at St. Mary's Catholic School in
Bernadine worked at various domestic jobs
for several years in St. Louis, Glasgow and
Moberly. It was at a house dance in Moberly that
a mutual friend introduced her to a young man
named Ed Sander. Their friendship led to their marriage on May
1, 1940. She and Ed lived and worked together on their very
successful dairy farm until his death in 1976. In 1964 they re-
ceived the State Balanced Farming Award, which was presented
to them at the Missouri State Fair. She worked for many years in
the St Pius X School cafeteria. Over the course of time, she sewed
and patched many pieces of clothing and embroidered numer-
ous pieces for her children, grandchildren and great-grand-
Bernadine had a "green thumb" and her flowers were the
envy of the neighborhood. She loved gardening and always had
a vegetable garden, tended fruit trees and raised chickens. She
sewed most of her own clothing and canned her own fruits and
vegetables. Bernadine was also a great cook and baker. The
family often enjoyed delicious dinners with produce from her
garden and the chickens she raised. Three of the family favorites
were her homemade bread, cinnamon rolls and rhubarb
dessert. When the grandchildren asked what was for dinner, her
reply was "pig's feet and cauliflower."
In addition to her husband, those preceding her in death-
include her parents, her twin brother, her older brother, four
sisters and a grandson.
She is survived by her children: Jerome (Jan) Sander of Co-
lumbia, Mary Jo (Richard) Partney of Ashland, Ted (Therese)
Sander of Moberly, John (Karen) Sander of Jefferson City; two
sisters, Mary Lee Rovira and Sister Clarita Hackman; 11
grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, numerous nieces,
nephews and friends.

She was born on November 9, 1922, in rural Russellville, the

to repair
of U.S. 63
By the News Tribune
The state Highway Depart-

one lane of southbound U.S.

being repaired is less than a

Observations of
council actions
Beverly Shelton
Jefferson City
Dear Editor:
To belittle one’s self while
serving in an elected position
in a City Council position in the
public eye cannot be condoned
or accepted by citizens of this
community. The temper tirade
displayed by this individual can-
not be tolerated or excused in
any sense of the imagination.
Failing in an attempt to get two
measures that she supported
and were voted down resulted in
the temper outburst.
Many of us were opposed to
these two measures that origi-
nated from the likes of the attor-
ney who has been in hot water
before. This time his idea was
copied from another communi-
ty; in other words, we seem to be
a copycat capital town. Original
ideas appear to be highly lacking,
nor can council members come
up with appealing projects that
interest the bill-paying public.
This group appears to be
shilly-shallying around on one
particular project that most of
the citizens oppose, pure and
simple, the absolutely ridiculous
convention center. We taxpay-
ers would like to be helped with
some of the money that we place
in this town’s coffers. Someone
needs to work on waylaying the
fox (government) and guarding
the henhouse (the citizen/voter)
door. What the town needs is
certainly not two attorneys but
requires a person with book-
keeping skills.
Oh, my goodness, doesn’t any-
one have the ability and knowl-
edge to see this?
When working in a govern-
ment position, this writer was
responsible, among all of her
numerous duties, for keeping
track of expenditures. The boss
would come out of his office to
my desk and inquire about the
balance in each of the various
accounts allotted by govern-
ment. After five minutes, with
adding unencumbered amounts
and subtracting other figures
I could ascertain the balances
remaining in the accounts.
And, no, I am not available
for a job.
Dissenting votes

Dear Editor:
I would like to join your staff
in commending the senators and
representatives you mentioned
in your column of the gun bill
that kept the veto.
I am not a Republican but
these gentlemen showed cour-
age and common sense. We need
more like them.
Thank you Tribune for pub-
lishing our opinions. And every-
one, please remember Newtown,
Ed Bode’s letter — “Double
standard on protecting life” —
published Sept. 12 should have
listed 40 years as the duration for
“the killing of innocent Amercan
children” since the “U.S.A. legal-
ized abortion.”
The time span since the 1973
Supreme Court ruling in Roe v.
Wade was incorrect.

State GOP
should swear
off proposed
loyalty oath
The News Tribune
Republicans will make a compound
error if they follow passage of flawed
legislation with poor policy.
The Republican State Committee
at its meeting Saturday considered the
equivalent of a loyalty oath for GOP
The proposal comes in the wake of
some Republican dissension during
last week’s veto session. Republicans
hold veto-proof majorities in both the
House and Senate if no GOP lawmaker
breaks ranks.
The proposed statement for pro-
spective Republican hopefuls would
read: “I have read, understand and
fundamentally support the platform
of the Missouri Republican Party.”
We fundamentally support some
planks of the Republican platform, but
we do not and will not support specific
bills that are grotesque manifestations
of sound concepts.
During the recent veto session,
Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon suffered a
record 10 veto overrides, but prevailed
on 20 others. Among those 20 were
high-profile measures, including a tax
cut and nullification of certain federal
firearms laws.
We support reasonable tax cuts as
economic incentives to spur business
and consumer activity.
But, we cannot ask lawmakers to
pass a flawed bill; even Republicans
acknowledged the bill erred in lift-
ing a tax exemption on prescription
Knowingly approving flawed legis-
lation is not good governing.
With regard to the firearm bill, we
reiterate our objection that the bill was
a duplicative, meaningless and self-
serving GOP proposal.
The right to bear arms is protected
in the Second Amendment to the U.S.
Constitution, a document that super-
sedes state pronouncements.
Party loyalty deserves to be a con-
sideration in the political arena, but
not the only — or even paramount
— consideration.
Lawmakers represent constituen-
They also have responsibility to
analyze specific proposals to deter-

The state GOP will make an egre-
gious error if it handcuffs candidates

By Chris Blank

JEFFERSON CITY — Fears of lost jobs and the pos-
sible closing of The Doe Run Co. prompted Missouri’s
Republican-dominated state Legislature to create a
shield against large-dollar lawsuit judgments. Yet, over-
riding Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto took willing Democrats to
supplant defecting Republicans — not the hammer of a
veto-proof GOP supermajority.
That pattern emerged with varying degrees during
this past week’s veto override session. Missouri Repub-
licans control two-thirds of the House and Senate
and theoretically can overcome a veto on the strength
of their own numbers. But there were times when
the ballyhooed supermajority still
needed Democratic votes to offset
wayward Republicans — especially
in the House.
The Missouri Legislature over-
rode Nixon’s vetoes 10 times this
past week. Just three passed with
enough Republican support to
ensure an override, but each of those
also picked up at least some support
from Democrats. Five vetoes were
overridden by the bare minimum in
either the House or Senate. House
Republicans control 109 seats, which
is the number needed for an over-
ride, and the Senate’s 24 Republicans
create a one-vote cushion.
For the Doe Run legislation, the
override passed with 10 Democratic
supporters and a one-vote cushion
in the House as nine Republicans did not support the
override. It cleared the Senate with three extra votes,
as two Republicans who voted “no” were offset by four
Democrats voting “yes.”
Doe Run mines and smelts ore and recycles lead for
new uses at eastern Missouri facilities that employee
about 1,600 people. The company is facing numerous
lawsuits and has said a costly jury judgment could drive
it out of business. The legislation prohibits punitive
damages related to mining sites that stopped operat-
ing before 1975 and for which the owners are making
“good faith efforts to remediate such sites.” If there are
not such efforts, punitive damages will be capped at
$2.5 million.
Several House Democrats also were substitutes for
Republican “no” votes on legislation attempting to
nullify some federal gun laws. The gun bill passed the
House with 109 votes and was one vote short in the
Senate where the top two Republicans leaders voted to
sustain Nixon’s veto.
Various House Republicans broke away on bills that
were overridden or sustained in tight votes, but the
most prominent break was for a tax-cutting bill that fell
well short of an override with no Democrats offsetting
the loss of 15 Republicans.
The wrangling over this year’s veto overrides made
clear that the perfect party cohesiveness needed for
Republicans to turn a House supermajority into an
active veto-proof majority is not a certainty. But there
also is no guarantee that House Democrats can hold
their members in line long enough to capitalize on any
GOP fractures.
House Minority Leader Jake Hummel said his mem-
bers can vote based upon their districts.
“We don’t threaten our people. We
don’t twist their arms,” said Hum-
mel, D-St. Louis. “We try to keep
our members informed and hope
that they vote the right way. But at
the end of the day, they have to vote
their district, and we are not in the
habit of punishing our members.”
It might not count as punish-
ment, but House Speaker Tim Jones
said there could be “a bit of tough
love” and “heart-to-heart” conver-
sations with some Republican law-
makers. He said going too far risks
weakening the veto-proof-majority
hammer for the 2014 session.
“If I want to pass another tax cut
bill or a labor reform bill or a tort
reform bill, I will need 109 people
potentially. If I don’t maintain the
trust and cooperation and support of my caucus, then
you can just write off any veto override right now,” said
Jones, R-Eureka.
Among the Republicans that voted against an over-
ride was Rep. Jay Barnes, an attorney who represents
Jefferson City. He supported overriding the tax cut but
voted against the gun legislation, the Doe Run measure
and several others. That included a bill that ended up
two votes short of an override and another that lost by
a single vote.
Barnes said he considers his conscience and his con-
stituents and that if there is an issue that would make
the legislation a bad law, he votes against it.
“There is nothing Republican or conservative about
flouting the constitution or immunizing the behavior of
people who harm others,” he said.

Ex-teacher gets 7 years
for videotaping boys
TROY (AP) — A former St.
Charles County middle school
teacher has been sentenced to
seven years in prison for secret-
ly videotaping boys as they
undressed in a camp shower.
Matthew Hansen, 39, Win-
field, was sentenced last week
for possession of child pornog-
raphy. Hansen is also awaiting
sentencing after pleading guilty
in federal court to eight counts
of attempted production of
child porn. The state and federal
sentences will run concurrently.
Hansen is a former math
teacher at West Middle School
in the Fort Zumwalt district.
Authorities say the crimes
happened between 2007 and
2012. School officials have cited
evidence that Hansen videotaped
at least 80 boys at an outdoor
education camp in Cuivre River
State Park in Lincoln County.

Firefighter injured

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis
firefighter is recovering after
falling through the floor of a
home while putting out a fire.
The fire broke out Sunday
afternoon. Firefighters arrived
to find flames coming out of
the house, and heavy smoke.
The blaze apparently weak-
ened the floors, causing a fire-
fighter to fall through. He was
taken to a hospital and is expect-
ed to recover. The firefighter’s
name was not released.
The residents were not home
at the time of the fire. The cause

Luetkemeyer said, or working

“You know, the previous
president had a weekly meet-

this, there’s no trust, there’s no

Letting Russia be the bro-
ker for the Syria situation may

the congressman said, “but we
have now just raised the stakes,
I believe, to make (the world) a

Congress has its own prob-
lems with the president, Luet-
kemeyer said, including no
final budget for the business
year beginning Oct. 1 and no
agreement on how to fund a
continuing resolution until
there is a budget plan.
But there also are disputes
between the House and Senate.
“(The House) passed a
budget back in March that cut
taxes and cut spending,” Luet-
kemeyer reported. “But (the
Senate) budget has a trillion-
dollars worth of tax increases
and they have more spend-
“As a result, our budgets are
so far apart there’s not enough
ground to even go to confer-
ence with (and) right now,
there’s not a consensus on
anything, from anybody.”
A similar disagreement
exists on immigration, he said,
where the Senate’s bill “isn’t
going to go anywhere ... we call
it ‘amnesty light,’” while the
House wants to “take a very
step-by-step approach, start-
ing with border security” and
with an improved, streamlined
visa policy.
Luetkemeyer is a member
of the U.S. House Financial
Services Committee, and told
the two dozen people attend-
ing Monday’s Rotary luncheon
that efforts to rein in the gov-
ernment’s support for home
mortgages through the Fannie
Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA
(Federal Housing Administra-
tion) agencies still will leave a
major financial hole taxpayers
likely will have to fill.
“They’ve lost over $200 billion,
and we’re on the hook, as taxpay-
ers, for $6 trillion that they’ve
guaranteed,” he explained. “If
you just take a 1 percent loss,
look where you’re at.

a plan and they have no inten-
tion of having a plan.”
“I do not understand where
the urgency is in doing this
resolution … it’s maybe great
politics, but it’s terrible pol-
Second Ward Councilman
J. Rick Mihalevich, one of the
sponsors of the resolution,
said he doesn’t see it the same
way. The project is on the city’s
list of projects already, just not
very high up.
“I think we’re putting too
much weight on this agree-
ment,” Mihalevich said. “It’s
just a framework.”
The agreement details
that several landowners near
Missouri 179 would volun-
tarily annex into the city
and provide right-of-way in
exchange for the city to pro-
vide needed infrastructure
for commercial and residen-
tial development.
The property owners
named in the agreement are:
Arthur Brown, Daisy Brown,
Charles Brown, Shirley Brown,
Donald Webb, Joyce Webb,
Larry Rademan, Janet B. Rade-
man, Ed Rackers and Mary M.
The properties are just
off Missouri 179 and would
require the extension of Mis-
sion Drive that spans Missouri
179 and will serve the new St.
Mary’s Health Center. It also
would require an extension
of Wildwood Drive, a project
that’s been talked about for
several years, but never high
on the city’s priority list.
The agreement stipulates
that the county would have
to agree to a cost-share for the
project to move forward.
In other business, the coun-
cil also approved a develop-
ment agreement with the Cap-
ital Mall ownership to create
a community improvement
district in order to help further
redevelopment plans for the
“Hiring emergency opera-
tors is one of the most cost-
effective ways we can get extra
help during winter storms,”
said MoDOT state mainte-
nance engineer Beth Wright.
“We staff our maintenance
forces at a level that will allow
us to maintain excellent service
to Missourians, but if a winter
storm hits and crews are work-
ing around the clock, we need
to make sure we have enough
people to operate safely.”
MoDOT is now hiring emer-
gency operators to work in all
parts of the state, including
both urban and rural areas.
Since workers are needed on
an “on-call” basis, working
hours aren’t guaranteed but
qualified applicants receive
extensive training and would
perform routine, entry-level
duties related to MoDOT’s
snow removal operations.
“Our ultimate goal is to return
our most traveled state routes to
near-normal conditions as fast
as we can,” said Wright. “Emer-
gency operators are one way we
can make sure that happens, no
matter how big the storm.”
MoDOT requires all appli-
cants for the emergency oper-
ator positions to be at least
18 years old and possess a
commercial driver’s license,
Class A or B, with no airbrake
restrictions. Applicants must
also successfully complete a
criminal background check
and drug screening. Those
hired as emergency operators
can earn $13.82 to $15.63 per
hour, depending on their lev-
els of experience.
MoDOT annually spends
about $42 million to keep
roads clear in the winter and
help ensure motorists get to
their destinations safely and

Univ. of Missouri eyes changing
intellectual property rules
COLUMBIA (AP) — The University of
Missouri System is considering changes
its rules on intellectual property in an
effort to boost entrepreneurial research.
Hank Foley, the newly hired execu-
tive vice president for academic affairs
at the four-campus system, discussed
ways to promote entrepreneurialism at
last week’s Board of Curators meeting in
Columbia. That includes possible chang-
es to how the system licenses intellectual
Current policy stipulates the university
— as the employer and as representative
of the people of the state — owns and
controls of any invention or plant variety
developed in the course of an employee’s
Foley, who came to the UM System
from Penn State University, steps into a
new job created to oversee campus aca-
demic functions as well as research and
economic development efforts. Those had
previously been the province of separate
At Penn State, a review of seven years
of data found that the university only
received $80,000 from four licenses, and
that came from nearly 1,300 invention dis-
closures, Foley told curators. When Penn
State changed the rules, the university saw
growth in research.
Missouri University of Science & Tech-
nology Chancellor Cheryl Schrader noted
the governing board agreed last year to
allow individual campuses to determine
intellectual property ownership under
certain circumstances rather than have a
one-size-fits-all rule.
“The idea is we don’t negotiate every
single agreement that comes through,”
she said.

Blair Oaks
downs Chamois
By Adam Stillman
wasn’t much the Blair Oaks
Lady Falcons could do wrong
Monday night.
The only slip-up of note in
Blair Oaks’ dominating 25-8,
25-3 victory against Chamois
was literally a slip-up.
Coming out of a timeout
during the first set, Lady Fal-
cons coach Joy Northweather
backed into a junior-varsity
player, causing both to tum-
ble to the floor.
“I have a bad habit of
backing out of the huddle
and going to my spot,” North-
weather joked. “One of the JV
players was behind me trying

Lady Jays defeat Lady Comets
By Tony Hawley
With four players on its roster 5-foot-11 or taller, it’s
a safe bet the Jefferson City volleyball team is going to
be pretty tough when throwing up a block.
Add in the fact the defenders on the back row are
doing a good job picking up anything that does get
through, and you’ve got a good recipe for success.
The Lady Jays showcased that ability Monday night,
turning aside a scrappy Fatima team by a 25-18, 25-19
score at Fleming Fieldhouse.
“We’re relying a lot on that front line,” Jefferson
City coach Chris Meyer said. “We’ve got some big kids
up there that we’re expecting to do their job and take
away a portion of the floor. With that said, we’re asking
our defense on the floor to read based on what those
(blockers) are doing and give ourselves chances on the
floor as well.”
That was on display the whole match, but particu-
larly during the first game.
After Fatima raced out to a 7-3 lead, Jefferson City
upped the pressure at the net and eventually pulled
even at 13.

Non-conference games provide
Tigers with time to develop
By Brent Foster
COLUMBIA —A year ago, the Missouri Tigers
were in the midst of a tough stretch that included
Southeastern Conference games against South
Carolina and Georgia.
A pair of conference losses in September put
the Tigers behind early and they never recovered
on their way to a 5-7 season.
But with four non-conference games to start
out the season, the Tigers have a chance to gain
some early-season momentum not afforded to
them last year.
With non-conference victories against Mur-
ray State and Toledo, and a pair of winnable
games against Indiana and Arkansas State, the
Tigers have a shot to be 4-0 when they open
conference play Oct. 5 at Vanderbilt.
“We can always gain confidence if you go
into the SEC with wins,” defensive end Markus
Golden said.
Missouri coach Gary Pinkel wouldn’t say one
way or the other if he liked all the non-confer-
ence games early, or if he preferred mixing them
But by the time the Tigers got around to
playing Syracuse late in the season, Missouri
had gone though the rigors of seven conference
“After you get done with the non-conference
games, now we’ve got to focus, SEC football, you
know how they’ve got competition,” Golden said.
“We’ll just be ready to play competition football
after playing the (non-conference teams).”
Missouri and Arkansas are the only SEC
teams that play all four of their non-conference
games in a row. All other SEC teams have at least

Royals top Indians 7-1
to open critical 3-game set
KANSAS CITY (AP) — James Shields
kept the Indians off balance for six
innings, Salvador Perez led a scrappy
Kansas City offense and the Royals
pounded Cleveland 7-1 on Monday night
to open a three-game set with significant
playoff implications.
Shields struck out a season-high 10 for
the Royals (79-71), who moved within 2
games of the AL’s second wild-card berth.
The Indians (81-69) remained a half-
game back of Texas, which lost to Tampa
Bay earlier in the night in a matchup of
teams leading the wild-card race.
Shields (12-9) allowed only Lonnie
Chisenhall’s solo homer before turning
the game over to his stingy bullpen. Wade
Davis, Luke Hochevar and Tim Collins
did the rest in a steady drizzle.
Scott Kazmir (8-9) gave up four runs
in 5-plus innings for the Indians. He
didn’t get a whole lot of help from his
offense, which racked up a season-high
17 strikeouts.
Perez finished with three hits and was
among six different players to drive in a
run for Kansas City, which is chasing its
first postseason berth since winning the
1985 World Series.
Accustomed to pitching in meaning-
ful September games, Shields kept the
Indians guessing all night. The former
Rays ace struck out Yan Gomes to leave
two aboard in the fourth — roaring as
he walked off the mound — and then
fanned three in the fifth after Chisenhall
went deep.
The only other trouble Shields had
occurred in the first. Nick Swisher reached
on a single before Carlos Santana sent a
two-out double down the right-field line.
Swisher was held at third base, and then

Rockies knock off Cardinals
DENVER (AP) — Todd Helton started
his final homestand with a key single in
the eighth inning that helped the Colo-
rado Rockies beat the St. Louis Cardinals
6-2 on Monday night.
Charlie Blackmon had three hits and
drove in three runs for the Rockies, who
prevented the Cardinals from taking over
sole possession of first place in the NL
Central. They remained tied with the
Pittsburgh Pirates, who lost 2-0 to San
Matt Carpenter and Matt Adams had
two hits each for the Cardinals.
Helton was playing in front of Col-
orado fans for the first time since he
announced his plans to retire at the end
of the season, his 17th. He received a
standing ovation when he came to the
plate in the first, and Cardinals starter
Lance Lynn stood behind the mound
and waited as the crowd saluted Helton.
The first baseman was given a loud
ovation in each of his four plate appear-
ances. His night started slow, but he had
a big hit during the decisive rally.
Troy Tulowitzki led off with a walk
against reliever Trevor Rosenthal (2-4),
and one out later Helton singled to cen-
ter to put runners at the corners. Wilin
Rosario singled to give Colorado a 3-2
Helton was caught in a rundown
between third and home for the second
out, but Blackmon doubled to right to
score Josh Rutledge from first to make
it 4-2.
Pinch-hitter Ryan Wheeler’s two-run
single off John Axford gave the Rockies a
6-2 cushion.
Collin McHugh started for Colorado in
place of lefty Jorge De La Rosa, who has
a sore thumb on his pitching hand that

That was just about the only blemish in an
impeccable match for the Lady Falcons.
“Pretty much. I’m just glad I didn’t hurt her. I
was trying not to land too hard,” Northweather
That bit of comedy highlighted a brisk 23-
minute night of fun for Blair Oaks. That includes
the three-minute intermission between sets
and a timeout in both games.
“The girls were fired up. They came out and
wanted to take care of business and get on
with it,” Northweather said. “Very proud of the
way they kept their intensity up, even against a
team that has been struggling.”
Chamois actually took a 2-0 lead in the first
set on a Lady Falcon service-line violation and
an ace from Karina Mehmert. It was all Blair
Oaks after that. The Lady Falcons scored the
next 11 points to assume control, highlight-
ed by Paige Rackers’ four aces. The freshman
ripped off an even more impressive string of
serves later in the match.
Chamois never got closer than seven as Blair
Oaks breezed to a 25-8 opening-set victory.
“They’re down. Chamois has lost a lot of
seniors from last year,” Northweather said.
“They’re having some personnel problems,
they had a couple out sick. It’s tough to play
games like that and be as aggressive as we were
The second set brought even less resistance,
as the Lady Falcons opened up a 14-0 advan-
tage en route to the 25-3 win.
“I had an opportunity to get a lot of the girls
in tonight, which I really like. ... It’s tough to
balance getting (the starters) time in a match
like this and getting good quality time for the
(bench players).”
Girls like Kaitlyn Kliethermes, Taylor Strope
and Shelbi Koelling all enjoyed playing time.
Rackers served during Blair Oaks’ string
of 14 straight points to open the second set,
amassing five of her match-high nine aces dur-
ing the run.
“I was kind of hoping that Paige would get
one tonight,” Northweather said, referring to
a perfect set. Danielle Lueckenhoff had one in
a JV game around 2010. “Doesn’t happen very
often. In a varsity match it’s almost unthink-
able. It’s just tough not to make any errors. She
was serving very tough. She has a nice little
floater and she mixes in some speed. It gets
people on their heels, she has a great serve.”

“It speaks of their desire to push. They were
disappointed, they wanted an errorless game,”
Northweather said. “That speaks of where we’re

some times. The maturity’s starting to show

After an Abbi McKnelly kill
gave Jefferson City its first lead
at 14-13, the Lady Jays were off
to the races.
“They’re tall, they’re ath-
letic, they’re a great group, a
great front line,” Fatima coach
Mark Bockstruck said. “The
only advantage we had on the
front row was when the setter
came onto the front and we
tried to exploit it. And we did,
but when you only have that
one option, it really limits how
you run your offense.”
The Lady Jays built the lead
to seven points on two occa-
sions, including the final mar-
The trend continued into
the second game, where Jef-
ferson City jumped out to a
7-3 lead, the last point com-
ing on a block by Makenzy
“We’re working on relent-
less pursuit, like we did last
year,” Meyer said. “That means
several things to us, but the
big thing is making sure there
is no ball that hits the ground
without effort from us.”
The Lady Comets could
have folded at that point, but
refused to do so. They ripped
off four straight points to tie it
at 7, the first of nine ties in the
“We never really let J.C. get
away from us,” Bockstruck
said. “The girls are fighters,
they’re competitors, they did
a great job. ... I’m very, very
proud of my team.”
However, the Lady Jays had
the better finishing kick. Jeffer-
son City won seven of the final
eight points to take the game,
with Sloan Pleus and McKnelly
putting down two kills each
during that spurt.
“We talk about playing to
win,” said Meyer, whose team
improved to 6-5-1. “There’s a
difference in playing to win and
not playing to lose. We tend to
get stagnant some times when
we’re ahead. We talked about
continuing to push through to
win that game at the end.”
The loss was the first of the
season for Fatima, which start-
ed the season with 11 straight
wins as the defending Class 2
state champion and is the top-
ranked team this season.
“We lost seven seniors last
year and people have been
counting us out this year, they
really have,” Bockstruck said.
“I’ve heard it from refs, I’ve
heard it from other teams’
parents, even from my friends
who say, ‘What are you going to
do this year now that you lost
seven seniors?’ This is a new
team, the main thing these
girls want to do is prove we’re
our own team, we’re not last
year’s team”
“... It’s an outstanding start
and we hung with J.C., which is
ranked No. 7 in Class 4. That’s

games. Missouri is the last
team to start SEC play, as the
Razorbacks open conference
play Sept. 28, a week before
The schedule is not unfa-
miliar to Missouri, however.
This year’s schedule is how it
was set up in the Big 12.
Prior to last season, Mis-
souri had not played a non-
conference game after the
start of conference season
since 2001. That year, Missouri
played Michigan State in the
final game of the season after
it was rescheduled due to the
9/11 attacks.
That schedule seemed to
work well in terms of wins for
Missouri. Since the NCAA went
to 12 games in 2006, the Tigers
started off 4-0 five times.
Some Tigers are indiffer-
ent about the schedule. Cen-
ter Evan Boehm said it makes
no difference to him when the
Tigers play their opponents.
“I don’t think it really mat-
ters, non-conference games
here, non-conference games
there,” he said. “You have to
show up and play the game of
football, and you have to be
competitive every single time
you step out on the field.”

game against Arkansas State
on Sept. 28 will kick off at 6:30
p.m. and will be broadcast on
Comcast Sports Southeast. ...

jump on it quick.” The book

ter about Missouri focuses

NASCAR mishandled
SpinGate from the start
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Everything could
have been handled better from the
moment Clint Bowyer spun at Rich-
mond to trigger the biggest credibility
crisis in NASCAR history.
That spin started as the well-inten-
tioned desire to help a teammate earn
a valuable spot in NASCAR’s version of
the playoffs, and with a little honesty,
a few deep breaths and some clear
thinking, it might have ended there.
Instead, the situation snowballed,
and NASCAR quickly had a full-blown
scandal on its hands.
So on the eve of the opening race of
the Chase for the Sprint Cup champi-
onship, chairman Brian France gath-
ered all the competitors of his family-
built series and tersely ordered them
to give 100 percent at all times going
That’s right, the lasting slogan of
this dark chapter for NASCAR will for-
ever be “give 100 percent.”
Where did things go so wrong?:
• There was no spin on the spin:
Bowyer’s attempt to bring out a cau-
tion was at minimum poor sports-
manship, but not uncommon in NAS-
CAR. It just happened to be a big race
with high stakes and a lot of people
watching. His Michael Waltrip Racing
crew chief had the bright idea to help
Martin Truex Jr. stave off elimination
from the Chase, and instructed Bow-
yer over his radio to “itch” his arm.
Bowyer did have poison oak, but
the command was so bizarre it was
immediately recognized as an obvious
code word. Bowyer also did himself no
favors after the race, denying intent
during a deer-in-headlights interview
on live TV.
NASCAR, apparently unaware of the
in-car audio conversation, dismissed
as implausible the notion Bowyer
might have intentionally spun. That
only fueled conspiracy theorists.
When audio the next day revealed
MWR general manager Ty Norris
ordered a confused Brian Vickers to
pit late in the race in an attempt to
help Truex, NASCAR suddenly had a
serious problem.
It’s doubtful, though, the two MWR
teams were ever working in con-
cert. Nothing has indicated the play-
ers involved were smart enough to
successfully execute any level of this
conspiracy. And the entire organiza-
tion went into lockdown for almost 48
hours, with team owner Waltrip car-
rying on with his duties as analyst for
a Truck Series race with no mention
of the controversy, even as rage was
clearly building among race fans.
NASCAR also said little beyond
confirming it was investigating the two
incidents. So by the time NASCAR did
act, critics were in full voice, demand-
ing stern punishment for MWR.
• The wrong penalty was issued:
NASCAR wanted to send a message
in issuing serious sanctions against
MWR, and it did with a $300,000 fine,
the indefinite suspension of Norris
and kicking Truex out of the Chase in
favor of Ryan Newman, the driver who
would have made it before Bowyer’s
But Bowyer got off virtually
unscathed because NASCAR said it
couldn’t prove the spin was deliber-
That incensed Jeff Gordon, who
wanted Bowyer punished for starting
the mess. When Bowyer got off with
his title hopes intact, it created two
problems NASCAR never saw coming:
• It forced Bowyer and MWR to
continue to lie about deliberately
spinning because admitting guilt now
would earn a retroactive penalty. So
Bowyer must continue to deny culpa-
bility or risk kissing his championship
goodbye. Had NASCAR just docked
him six points — the equivalent of the
25-point penalty Dale Earnhardt Jr.
received for admitting to intentionally
causing a caution in 2004 — he’d be in
a deep hole but could try to climb out
with a clear conscious.
• In citing Vickers’ late trip down
pit road as the smoking gun, NASCAR
singled out one of many wink-and-
nod practices that goes on all the time
between multicar teams. It opened a
Pandora’s box and made teams won-
der what exactly is legal? NASCAR
should have penalized Bowyer and
fined MWR at least $1 million — a
sum likely close to the bonus sponsor
NAPA Auto Parts would have owed the
team for Truex making the Chase.
Now that France has expanded the
field to 13 drivers to accommodate
Gordon, if NASCAR could back up to
Monday, the $1 million fine to MWR
might have made it easy to accept
expanding the field to 14 to accommo-
date Gordon, Newman and Truex.
• Different standards: Once Vickers’
action had been singled out, teams all
across the garage had to worry. They’d
all been trading favors forever and
many were at Richmond.
It didn’t take long to discover Joey
Logano had help making the Chase
— first from Vickers and Bowyer, who
in aiding Truex had to help Logano
— but also from fellow Ford driver
David Gilliland.
Front Row Motorsports offered to
have Gilliland move over for Logano
during radio discussions about nego-
tiating with deep-pocketed Penske
The Penske team — referred to as
“the whole committee” and “the big
dog and all of his cronies” on the Front
Row radio — was too smart to get its
hands dirty. NASCAR had no evidence
of any Penske wrongdoing because
the team either did its bidding over
digital radio not accessible to the pub-
lic or communicated directly with the
spotter on top of the Richmond roof.
But NASCAR had to do something
after hammering MWR, right?
Penske and Front Row got a slap
on the wrist with probation and a new
rule banning digitial radios and any-
one but the spotter from the roof.
While MWR, which was harshly
rebuked by sponsor NAPA in the days
after its penalty, is hoping this incident
doesn’t ruin its team, the only thing
Penske Racing has to worry about is
finding a new spot for Roger Penske to
watch the races.
The one thing NASCAR did get right
was defining new “rules of the road”
in France’s Saturday meeting. Banned
going forward is any sort of action
that could be considered as artificially
altering the outcome of the race. Driv-
ers now have one job — drive as hard
as they can, every lap, from start to
Sometime in the early morning
hours Monday, after teammate Matt
Kenseth had beaten him to the finish
line in the opening Chase race, Kyle
Busch noted he’d done everything
possible to win the race.
“100 percent,” he shrugged.
One hundred percent, indeed.

Juan Pablo Montoya
to drive for Team Penske
a chance to start over and maybe
drive in any series he wanted, Juan
Pablo Montoya thought long and
hard about what mattered most at
this stage of his career.
The answer was simple: Winning.
So when a team owner synony-
mous with winning put an offer in
front of him, Montoya snapped at
the opportunity. He’ll leave NASCAR
behind for a return to open-wheel to
drive for Roger Penske — the Indy-
Car Series rival of Montoya’s long-
time boss, Chip Ganassi.
“He’s very excited for me,” Mon-
toya said Monday after texting with
Ganassi, who is in Europe. “Some-
thing that we have with Chip is that
we’re very good friends. We have
a lot of respect for each other. He
had to make a decision this year
to go in a different direction. I had
to do the same thing. I had an
opportunity and a great chance with
Penske. We’re going to be competi-
tors and I’m looking forward to the
Ganassi decided in August not to
bring Montoya back next year to his
NASCAR program. It put the Colom-
bian on the free agent market, and
even though Ganassi has said he’d
not ruled out using Montoya in his
other programs, Montoya consid-
ered everything.
He spoke with Michael Andretti
about an IndyCar ride, and Furni-
ture Row Racing about replacing
Kurt Busch at the end of the NASCAR
season. There were calls to Europe,
and a new rumor about a possible
test with Lotus in Formula One.
Then came discussions with Pen-
ske and all bets were off with the
other teams. Montoya will team next
season with current IndyCar points
leader Helio Castroneves and Will
Power while driving for Penske, win-
ner of 15 Indianapolis 500s. He could
also drive in some NASCAR races as
part of the deal.
“My No. 1 choice was going to
be in a winning car. I really wanted
to be in a winning car,” he said. “It
came down to I wanted to race for
Roger. In a way it’s always been one
of my dreams to be able to be part
of his organization. Being here, it’s
unbelievable. I’m so excited. I’m like
a 5-year-old kid right now.”
Some could also consider the
move a big piece of gamesmanship
in the racing rivalry that spans two
series between Ganassi and Penske.
Castroneves and Ganassi driver Scott
Dixon are currently locked in a fierce
battle for the title, and the competi-
tion has heated up over the last two
races as Dixon has been involved in
incidents with Power and the Penske
“He’s a great driver and deserves
a great drive,” Ganassi said. “He will
have that there at Penske Racing.”
Montoya won the 1999 CART
title, the 2000 Indianapolis 500 and
11 races driving open-wheel for
Ganassi. He then moved to Formula
One, where he had seven wins and
30 podiums, before reuniting with
Ganassi again in 2006 to compete in
But results in NASCAR have been
sporadic. Montoya has just two wins
in 244 career starts and his best sea-
son finish was eighth in 2009. He’s
20th in the standings this season.
The program has been through
several rebuilds since Montoya came
aboard, and it was a middle-of-the-
road organization when he signed
on in 2006.
Their first NASCAR season was
decent and gave the organization a
boost with a win on the road course
at Sonoma, six top-10s and rookie of
the year in 2007. But 2008 was the
first sign of trouble as Montoya had
two crew chief changes in the first
16 races.
Montoya made the Chase for the
Sprint Cup championship in 2009
with crew chief Brian Pattie behind
a career-best 18 top-10s, and he was
third in points with six races to go in
the season before fading to eighth in
the final standings.
He won on the road course at
Watkins Glen in 2010, but Pattie was
let go before Indianapolis in 2011 for
Montoya’s fourth crew chief change.
The Ganassi team began another
overhaul that winter and Chris Heroy
was hired as Montoya’s fifth crew
chief before 2012. That entire season
was spent trying to get the Ganassi
cars up to speed.
With the hiring, Montoya is now
stuck in the middle of a spat between
Penske and Ganassi drivers over in
Ganassi driver Dixon was penal-
ized in Sonoma when his car made
contact with a crew member for
Power, Castroneves’ teammate, on
the final pit stop. IndyCar race direc-
tor Beaux Barfield said Dixon had
driven into the Penske Racing work
space, but Dixon alleged the crew
member walked into his car.
The penalty cost Dixon a chance
to race for the win, and opinion
was split through the paddock as to
who was at fault and if race control
perhaps should not have penalized
Dixon and Power collided at the
next race at Baltimore, and the con-
tact ended Dixon’s day when Indy-
Car officials did not tow his car back
to pit lane for repairs. He then said
Barfield should be fired, comments
that earned him a $30,000 fine from
Montoya said he’ll try to stay out
of the fray.
“I think I’m going to have a lit-
tle white flag, I’m going to be very
neutral there,” Montoya said. “For
one side, I’m still committed with
Chip and the NASCAR program for
the next nine races. But I think it’s
going to be fun. It’s going to be like
mixed emotions watching the last
few IndyCar races.”

Zach Johnson
rallies to win
BMW Championship
— Zach Johnson is having a
September to remember, and
there’s still one very big week
to go.
In one tournament, he
made a 25-foot birdie putt on
his final hole to earn the last
spot on the Presidents Cup
team. In the next one, Johnson
made a bunch of big putts in
the final round of the rain-
delayed BMW Championship
for a 6-under 65 for a two-shot
victory against Nick Watney.
Next up?
His win Monday at Conway
Farms gave Johnson the No. 4
seed going into Tour Champi-
onship, giving him a clear shot
at the FedEx Cup and its $10
million prize.
“It’s hard to grasp the last
two weeks of golf,” Johnson
said. “It’s not like you have to
win every week to win that
FedEx Cup. You’ve just got to
win at the right times, or play
well at the right times. And I
like the momentum I have for
next week.”
Johnson’s 10th career win
came at the expense of Jim
Furyk, who endured another
dose of final-round disap-
pointment. Furyk, who had a
one-shot lead, has failed to
win the last six times he had at
least a share of the lead going
into the last round. He holed
a 12-foot birdie putt at No. 10
to build a two-shot lead, but
played the last eight holes in
2-over and wound up with a 71
to finish alone in third.
Furyk had to settle for a
slice of history Friday as the
sixth player in PGA Tour his-
tory with a 59. Only three play-
ers in that exclusive club went
on to win — Al Geiberger is the
only player to win when the 59
was not in the final round.
“I don’t know if I used them
all up on Friday and knocked
them all in or what, but I just
wasn’t able to get the putts to
go,” Furyk said.
Johnson wasn’t the only
player who felt like a winner
Luke Donald, a member at
Conway Farms, was No. 54 in
the FedEx Cup and was on the
verge of being left out of the
top 30 players who advanced
to the Tour Championship. He
ran off four straight birdies on
the back nine, atoned for a
bogey on No. 16 with a birdie
on the 17th, and then saved
par from a bunker on the 18th
hole for a 66 to tie for fourth.
That moved him up to No. 29
to get him into East Lake.
Watney was at No. 34, and
he went from playing his way
into the top 30 to nearly win-
ning the tournament. Watney
closed with a 64 and was tied
for the lead until Johnson
made an 18-foot birdie putt
out of the first cut on the 16th
hole, and a 12-footer for birdie
on the next hole.
“The guys ahead of me
were ahead of me for a reason
— they’ve been playing well all
year,” Watney said. “Luckily for
me, I kind of pulled everything
The FedEx Cup points will
be reset, meaning the top
five only have to win the Tour
Championship to capture the
Tiger Woods will be the No.
1 seed, though he doesn’t go
there with much momentum.
Woods started the final round
in cool, breezy conditions just
four shots behind and was
never a factor after missing a
short par putt on the open-
ing hole. He closed with a 71
and tied for 11th, seven shots
“It was not a very good put-
ting week,” Woods said, who
was coming off a tie for 65th
on the TPC Boston. “It’s just
one of those weeks where I
just didn’t have it.”
Henrik Stenson, a winner
in Boston and angry enough

head of his driver Monday, will

Falcons strong safety William Moore, a former Missouri Tiger, tackles Rams tight
end Mike McNeill during the first half of Sunday’s game in Atlanta.
Fisher believes officiating
errors cost Rams in Week 2
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jeff Fisher said officiat-
ing mistakes were the biggest reason the St.
Louis Rams fell short in their bid for a sec-
ond comeback victory in as many games.
The Rams (1-1) had seven penalties for
53 yards in a 31-24 loss at Atlanta on Sun-
After reviewing tape Monday, their coach
said he wasn’t concerned about the penal-
ties because only two made by referee Scott
Green’s crew should have been called.
“I was upset after the ball game, but
looking at the tape those are incorrect calls,”
Fisher said.
“There were some other instances where
there should have been some things called
against our opponent that were not called,
that could have created some situations for
Among others, Fisher judged twice-
whistled rookie Stedman Bailey had proper
technique on calls for illegal block above
the waist and offensive holding on special
The call Fisher disliked most came on
the third play of the game when defensive
end Chris Long was penalized for offside
after tackle Lamar Holmes moved. Fisher
said it was an example of “False Start 101.”
Instead of third-and-17 and a chance to
give rookie punt returner Tavon Austin a
chance to take off, it was third-and-7.
Matt Ryan hit Tony Gonzalez for an 11-
yard gain and eight plays later they had
the game’s first score on an 8-yard pass to
Steven Jackson.
“You get off the field, get the ball back,”
Fisher said. “You’re also talking about field
position and a young punt returner that’s
not backed up with his heels on the 8-yard
“He’s got a chance to put his hands on
the ball.”
Fisher also thought officials missed an
intentional grounding call on Ryan out of
the end zone in the third quarter. The Fal-
cons had seven penalties for 53 yards.
Two calls Fisher thought the referees got
right were holding on center Scott Wells in
the third quarter and an illegal motion call
on wide receiver Austin Pettis in the second
Softening the critique slightly, Fisher
added: “By no means am I placing blame. I
have great respect for the officiating depart-
ment and the officials and work very close
with them, and we move on.”
The first Bailey penalty pushed the Rams
back to their 11 in the second quarter, and
the second one pushed them back to the
13. Fisher said those calls drove home the
point not to rush to judgment “unless I see
the act.”
The Rams erased an 11-point deficit
against Arizona in the opener. They trailed
21-0 early at Atlanta and twice cut the gap
to a touchdown in the second half after
going to a no-huddle, spread offense.
“I think it made a pretty big difference,”
quarterback Sam Bradford said. “It seemed
to just put them on their heels a little bit.”
So, there’s no quit.
“We just eliminated the mistakes,” tackle
Jake Long said. “We just calmed down and
started protecting, Sam was flinging the ball
around and it was a little too late.”
Officiating was far from the lone culprit,
with miscues canceling out big plays.
Austin caught two touchdown passes,
but dropped two passes and missed some
other reads.
“I could have had some big plays but
didn’t,” Austin said. “So I blame myself for
that. I will correct it, it is something that
definitely will be corrected.”
Daryl Richardson’s dropped pass was
intercepted and returned for a touchdown
and Janoris Jenkins got burned for Julio
Jones’ 81-yard score.
“I took my eye off of it,” Richardson said.
“I was looking to run and I need to make
sure I eyeball that ball and catch it.”
Fisher said he’d have more information
Wednesday on the status of offensive tackle
Rodger Saffold, who injured his left knee.
Backup safety Matt Daniels will undergo
surgery this week for a fractured right ankle
after kickoff returner Benny Cunningham
rolled into him in the first quarter.
Eyes on the stripes
Chiefs quickly start preparing for
Thursday’s game against Eagles
KANSAS CITY (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs
were about 20 minutes removed from a victory
against the Cowboys that allowed them to match
their victory total from all of last season when ques-
tions immediately shifted to Thursday night’s game
in Philadelphia.
Turns out that was about 20 minutes more than
they needed.
“Our mindset is to go 3-0,” wide receiver Dwayne
Bowe said. “We want to go 4-0 in the first quarter,
that’s what coach is preaching and we all have that
in our mind.”
Even seconds after the kind of uplifting win that
so eluded the Chiefs last season.
They pushed their record to 2-0 with a 17-16 vic-
tory, just the second time since 2005 the franchise
has started off with a pair of wins.
In any other week, coach Andy Reid might give
everyone a day off after such a win.
Instead, the coaching staff convened Sunday
night to start studying film of the Eagles, and they
were back at the training facility Monday to finish
off their game plan.
“Every coach tells you these Thursday nights, it’s
a quick turnaround, and you just have to go,” said
Reid, who has the added stress of facing the team
that fired him after 14 seasons.
“It’s something you have to do. You buckle down
and make sure you get it done.”
So far, the Chiefs have done that quite admira-
In a win at Jacksonville and a come-from-behind
victory against the Cowboys, a defense that returns
four Pro Bowl players has allowed just one touch-
It’s yielding a shade below 250 yards a game,
fourth-best in the league, and already has racked
up nine sacks.
Then there’s the offense, which has taken advan-
tage of the luxurious field position.
Alex Smith has four touchdown passes without
an interception. Jamaal Charles has proven to be as
adept at catching the ball as he is running it. And a
receiving group led by Bowe has made enough plays
to keep the chains moving in crunch time.
“You have to battle,” Smith said. “You don’t know
what play it’s going to be that makes a difference of
the course of the game. You don’t know what’s going
to be the difference maker.”
Against the Cowboys, it may have been Charles
down the stretch.
The Chiefs’ defense held and Dan Bailey kicked
a field goal with 3:55 left in the game. Dallas then
kicked off hoping to force a quick punt.
Instead, Charles carried the Chiefs to a series of
first downs that melted enough time off the clock
that Tony Romo never really had a shot at leading
Dallas into position for a winning score.
“I knew I was going to get the ball,” said Charles,
who played despite missing practice earlier in the
week with a bruised quad. “I knew the moment was
going to come and it came today and I was very
happy I had to carry my team on my back.”
Not even Charles spent a whole lot of time relish-
ing the win, though. His thoughts began to drift to
the Eagles, too.
Charles and the rest of the Kansas City offense
were licking their chops at the prospect of facing
a defense shredded for more than 400 yards pass-
ing by Philip Rivers and San Diego in a 33-30 loss
On the flip side, the Chiefs’ stingy defense was
thinking about ways to slow down the frenetic pace
of the Philadelphia offense under new coach Chip
“We’ve studied them a lot in the offseason. We’ve
been grinding since last night,” defensive coordina-
tor Bob Sutton said Monday. “I don’t think the prob-
lem will be seeing it, the problem will be getting the
plan in and executing it.”
Maybe that’s why the Chiefs didn’t spend much
time celebrating their winning start.
“Most of these guys are from last year and the
taste we had in our mouths last year, nobody ever
wants to feel that again,” defensive tackle Dontari
Poe said. “Everybody’s focused. Everybody is work-
ing hard and making sure that don’t happen.”

and signed TE Kevin Brock. ... LT Branden Albert

has shot through the Royals’
system. He began the season
at Double-A Northwest Arkan-

Omaha, where he was 5-4 with
a 3.74 ERA.
Ventura helped the Storm
Chasers win the Pacific Coast
League championship, though
he was pulled from his start
in a playoff game for “undis-
closed team violations.”
Ventura declined to address
the violations when he arrived
in the clubhouse Monday, but
he said through a translator
— Royals veteran Bruce Chen
— he was ready for the spot-
“This is the highest level of
baseball,” he said, “so every
time I go out there to pitch
I’m going to give everything I
can in my power, so I can do a
good job.”
Chen said the veteran mem-
bers of the Royals talked to
Ventura about whatever hap-
pened at Omaha and believes
the 22-year-old pitcher has
learned from his mistake.
“He’s young and I’m glad it
happened early,” Chen said.
“He’s going to learn from this
and become a much better
person and teammate.”
While nothing compares to
making a major league debut,
especially in a playoff race,
Ventura will have some com-
fort in having pitched at Kauff-
man Stadium. He’s pitched in
the last two Futures Games
during All-Star festivities,
including the one hosted by
the Royals last season.
“Yeah,” Ventura said, “it is
an advantage that I know a lit-
tle more about the stadium.”
Duffy said that he experi-
enced discomfort in his elbow
after a side session Saturday.
He had an MRI exam Monday
that found inflammation but
no structural damage.

Bengals top Steelers
elusive rookie made all the dif-
ference by darting through the
Steelers’ defense.
Running back Giovani Ber-
nard scored his first two NFL
touchdowns, one of them on a
short pass he turned into a 27-
yard score, and the Cincinnati
Bengals beat Pittsburgh 20-10
on Monday night, extending
the Steelers’ early misery.
The second-round draft pick
had a 7-yard touchdown run in
the first half before turning a
short pass from Andy Dalton
into a third-quarter score — a
preview of what the Bengals
(1-1) could become with a
pass-catching threat out of the
First-round pick Tyler Eifert
also had a big play, making
a 61-yard catch that set up
Bernard’s touchdown run.
The Bengals piled up 407
yards on one of the NFL’s
toughest defenses, holding the
ball for more than 35 minutes.
Pittsburgh fell to 0-2 for the
first time since 2002, done in by
another game of self-destruc-
tion on offense. The Steelers
had two turnovers in scoring
range and couldn’t hold the
ball long enough to give their
defense a breather, failing to
get a first down on seven of
their 12 possessions.
It was a chance for the
Bengals to show they’ve sup-
planted the Steelers in the
AFC North. They beat Pitts-
burgh 13-10 at Heinz Field
last December to reach the
playoffs, and now have moved
ahead of them again with a
rare Monday night win.

sister must
reach out
for help on
her own
DEAR ABBY: My younger
sister, “Tanya,” is 22 and a sin-
gle mother. Her son is 2. She’s
pregnant again, and this time
her baby will be a girl.
My sister is very dramatic and
emotional. She gets angry easily
and has a short
fuse. She’s
great with her
son, except he
picks up on
her drama and
is somewhat
dramatic him-
self. My worry
is that girls are
more likely to
imitate that
behavior, and I’m concerned my
niece will be just like her mother.
Although Tanya has a good heart,
her emotional issues have caused
her to have horrible relationships
with men, as our mother did.
When I suggested to my sister
that she talk to someone about
her anger, she flipped out on me.
We were both sexually abused as
children. I have dealt with those
issues and she has not. Was I
rude to suggest she see someone
about her emotional problems?
Suggesting that Tanya discuss
this with a professional wasn’t
rude; it was a loving thing to
do. Your sister reacted defen-
sively because she isn’t ready
to admit she needs help.
What you must do is hope
that one day she will be recep-
tive, but also accept that it may
never happen. Not everyone is
strong enough to face the fact
that they need help or willing
to reach out for it.
DEAR ABBY: How does a per-
son quit being a quitter? At 46,
I have realized that this is what
I am. I have quit everything –
church, jobs, school. If I don’t like
a friend, I just drop the person.
The same goes for books, exer-
cise – everything! How do you
stop the lifelong habit of quitting?
to see you give yourself a pejo-
rative label. It’s time to have
yourself evaluated because
it is possible you suffer from
attention deficit disorder – and
if you do, there is help for it.
If that’s not the case, then
start small, give yourself a goal
you CAN accomplish and don’t
stop until you have reached
it. It doesn’t have to be any-
thing complicated, but see it
through. Then give yourself
another, more difficult assign-
ment and finish it.
Perseverance is a skill that
can be learned. Each time you
succeed, you will reinforce the
idea that you CAN do it. The
more you do this, the better
you will feel about yourself,
and it will be reflected in your
work and social relationships.
DEAR ABBY: I am a mar-
ried woman with several single
friends. They are always eager
to do things with me, but mar-
ried life is a lot different than
being single. I’d love to connect
these friends, who don’t know
each other. I realize making
friends can be hard, and I’d
love to help them in that way.
What would be the best way
to do this? I don’t have a lot of
time to spend inviting everyone
together and having them get to
know each other. I’d like to do
a quick introduction, then let
them go have fun doing “single
people” things. Is this possible?
DEAR UNIFIER: Absolutely.
Call or email your friends and
tell them there are people you
want them to meet because
you think they’d enjoy each
other. Then arrange a group
lunch at a convenient loca-
tion and introduce them. After
that, if the chemistry is right,
they’ll become friendly.

gail Van Buren, also known as

New Miss
America takes
traditional dip
in NJ surf
— On Nina Davuluri’s first day
as the new Miss America, she
dipped her toes into the Atlan-
tic City surf.
But hours earlier, she had
to dive headfirst into the com-
plex challenges of becoming
the first Miss America of Indian
Moments after winning,
Davuluri had her first test as
Miss America: The first question
she was asked in a news confer-
ence was about social media
users upset that someone of
Indian heritage had won.
“I have to rise above that,”
Davuluri said. “I always viewed
myself as first and foremost
She said she’s delighted that
the nearly century-old pageant
sees beauty and talent of all
“I’m so happy this organiza-
tion has embraced diversity,”
she said. “I’m thankful there are
children watching at home who
can finally relate to a new Miss
Davuluri’s pageant plat-
form was “celebrating diversity
through cultural competency.”
Her talent routine was a Bol-
lywood fusion dance.
The 24-year-old is the sec-
ond Asian-American winner,
after Angela Perez-Baraquio,
who’s of Filipino descent and
won in 2001.
Davuluri, a native of Syra-
cuse, N.Y., wants to be a doc-
tor and is applying to medi-
cal school, with the help of a
$50,000 scholarship she won as
part of the pageant title.
She’s the second consecu-
tive Miss New York to win the
Miss America crown, succeed-
ing Mallory Hagan, who was
selected in January.
Monday morning, she took
the traditional ocean frolic dip
in the surf in front of Board-
walk Hall, where she won the
title hours earlier. The pageant,
which originated in Atlan-
tic City in 1921, spent the last
six years in Las Vegas before
returning to New Jersey.

If you have ever been in a pickle,
tongue-tied, had too much of a good
thing, refused to budge an inch, or
heard your folks say, “You’ve eaten me
out of house and home,” then you’ve
been living with the words of William
He was able to put words together
so beautifully that today, about 450
years after his birth, we are still
quoting Shakespeare. His amazing
gift for words changed the English
language forever.
To learn more about Shakespeare’s
genius for words, The Mini Page
talked with Michael Witmore, director
of the Folger Shakespeare Library.
‘All the world’s a stage’
William Shakespeare
invented hundreds of
words, used them in
brand-new ways and
wrote lines that opened
up new ways of seeing.
Words from his plays
and poems still ring true
today. His works have been translated
into hundreds of languages.
Shakespeare plays include “Romeo and
Juliet,” “Hamlet” and “Julius Caesar.”
He is also famous for a special kind of
poetry called a sonnet (SAHN-ut).
‘The play’s the thing’
People in Shakespeare’s time loved
to play with words. They also loved
proverbs, or sayings.
Shakespeare shared these loves. He
invented hundreds of sayings. Some
of the proverbs in his plays may not
have been invented by him; they may
have been common in his time. But
his works are the only record we have
of some sayings. Experts believe he
invented most of the phrases in his work.
‘Be that as it may’
Although Shakespeare’s words are
familiar to us today, we don’t have any
manuscripts of his work in his own
handwriting. In 1623, two of his actor
friends published the “First Folio.” A
folio (FO-lee-o) is a special kind of book.
There are only 232 known copies
of the First Folio still in existence.
Unfortunately, no two are exactly
alike. Printers of the time put the
folios together in different orders.
Sometimes they decided to correct
what they thought were errors;
punctuation was put in differently,
and the spelling of some words
changed. Actors and directors may
have changed things in the plays too.
By looking at all the versions,
scholars have put together what they
believe are the most accurate scripts.
‘Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On’
William Shakespeare
Shakespeare was born about 1564 in
Stratford-upon-Avon in England. He wrote
his most famous plays from about 1589 to














The First Folio
contains 36 of
Shakespeare’s plays.
If we didn’t have this
book, we would have
lost about half of
his plays, including
“Macbeth” and
“Twelfth Night.”

‘What’s in a name?’
Michael Witmore, Folger
Shakespeare Library director, says:
“Reading Shakespeare is like being a
bird watcher. Every once in a while,
you see this very beautiful bird fly by
that you’ve never seen before. Part
of the fun of Shakespeare is reading
a rare word, or a beautiful word that
you’ve never seen before.”
Shakespeare used words in ways
they’d never been used before.
The most famous rare word he
re-invented is “incarnadine,” Michael
said. Incarnadine (in-KAR-nuh-
dine) means a bright red color.
Shakespeare took this noun and
turned it into a verb. It would be
like turning “red” into “redden,” only
much more poetic.
In Shakespeare’s play “Macbeth,”
Macbeth starts murdering people to
gain power.
‘Foul play’
Macbeth’s speech sounds
complicated and hard to understand
at first. But even if you are a
beginner, you can figure out what
he’s saying because Shakespeare
uses poetic words, then repeats the
message in regular words — “making
the green one red.”
Macbeth is saying that all the
oceans in the world are not enough
to wash the blood from his hands.
Instead, his bloody hands will change
the green ocean to red.
By turning the noun “incarnadine”
into a verb, Shakespeare makes
the meaning
pop out. We
can just see
turning the
green seas
to red.
‘Rhyme or Reason’
Macbeth looks at his hand, saying:
“Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash
this blood
Clean from my hand? No, this my
hand will rather
The multitudinous seas incarnadine,
Making the green one red.”

‘A rose by any other name’
Shakespeare’s words are so rich
and layered that people often use
the phrases differently than how
Shakespeare meant them on stage.
For example, in
his play “Hamlet,”
the queen says,
“Sweets to the
sweet” as she
tosses flowers onto
a woman’s grave.
But today, we use
that phrase to mean
something fun —
for example, giving
candy or flowers to a friend.
‘Some achieve greatness’
When Nelson Mandela was in
prison for fighting for human rights
in South Africa, the prisoners passed
around a book of Shakespeare. Each
prisoner chose a passage that meant
something special to him. Mandela
chose a phrase from “Julius Caesar”:
“Cowards die many times before
their deaths.
The valiant* never taste of death
but once.”
*“Valiant” means “brave.”
In the play, these words are spoken
by Caesar, who was a bullying ruler.
But it didn’t matter to Mandela that
the words were spoken by a bully
like those he was fighting against.
The words had special meaning all
on their own.
Mandela later became president of
South Africa.
‘The be-all and end-all’
Shakespeare’s words enrich other
media too. For example:
s“Nothing Like the
Sun” sung by Sting
s“Pomp and
by Edward Elgar
(“Othello”). You
may have heard
this music played at
(“Julius Caesar”) is
the name of a song
sung by Pink Floyd,
the name of a comic
book series and a
computer game.
‘A Spotless Reputation’
‘Full circle’
Shakespeare’s words still ring true
with today’s audiences. Video games,
songs, movies and TV shows rely on
his words.
Here are some examples of
Shakespeare’s words in modern
Wicked This Way
Comes” (From
s“North by
Northwest” (“Hamlet”)
s“Star Trek VI: The
Undiscovered Country” (“Hamlet”)
sh7HERE%AGLES$AREvhRichard III”)
TV shows:

John Howland checks his watch as he runs on the Greenway as he prepares for a week-
end run. Howland has increased his endurance and decreased his recovery time after a
run with increased core strength.
Core of good health
Switch to core training
provides surprising results
By Olivia Ingle
John Howland has learned firsthand the
importance of core fitness as a runner, although
the knowledge came 35 years into his pastime.
He was experiencing leg, hip and back sore-
ness, so in January, he made the conscious deci-
sion to initiate a three-month core strengthen-
ing program. He stopped running and began
core training.
He took up running again in April and ran
his first 5K race in May.
“The results were interesting,” Howland
said. “This year, I ran the distance in 20:05, a
good time for me. However, I quickly noted that
my previous year’s time was 20:37.
“I was one year older, but faster by 2.5 per-
He again proved his time in his next race, an
8K on Memorial Day.
“When I compared my actual training logs
for 2011, 2012 and 2013 seasons, I noted that
weekly workouts in preparation for the races
were similar to identical,” Howland said. “The
different variable was the three-month core fit-
ness program in 2013.”
He said his “lower back problems had virtu-
ally vanished.”
Shari Kicker, a physical therapist at Capital
Region Medical Center’s Healthplex West, said
core strengthening helps reduce injury in any
on opioid
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Food and Drug
Administration is requiring stronger warning
labels on prescription painkillers like Oxy-
Contin, in the government’s latest attempt to
reduce overdose deaths caused by the long-
acting medications.
The changes announced Tuesday are
designed to remind doctors and patients about
the fatal risks of misusing and abusing long-
acting opioid pain relievers, which include
forms of oxycodone, morphine and other nar-
cotic medications. Whereas the previous label
recommended the medications for “moderate
to severe pain,” the new label describes a more
limited role. It says the drugs should only be
used for “pain severe enough to require daily,
around-the-clock” treatment that cannot be
managed with alternatives, such as over-the-
counter medications or immediate-release
“These labeling changes describe more
clearly the risks and safety concerns associat-
ed with ‘extended release and long-acting’ opi-
oids and will encourage better, more appro-
priate, prescribing, monitoring and patient
counseling practices involving these drugs,”
the FDA’s Dr. Douglas Throckmorton said in a
The new label also includes a boxed warn-
ing about the risks of opioid withdrawal syn-
drome in infants who are exposed to the drugs
during pregnancy, labor and nursing. Symp-
toms may include rapid breathing, trembling
and poor feeding habits.
The FDA is also requiring manufacturers of
the targeted products to conduct long-term
studies tracking rates of misuses, abuse, addic-
tion and death among patients.
Tuesday’s action affects about 20 prescrip-
tion products, including Purdue Pharma’s Oxy-
Contin, Johnson & Johnson’s Duragesic patch
and Pfizer’s Embeda. Opioids are drugs that
simulate the effects of natural narcotics, such
as the opium poppy. They are typically pre-
scribed for people already taking pain medica-
tions, including cancer patients, to treat severe
pain flare-ups.
The FDA has issued a number of warn-
ings about the dangers of prescription pain
relievers in recent years, but with little effect.

US measles tally
already among
worst in 15 years
ATLANTA (AP) — Health officials say 2013
already is one of the worst years for measles in
more than 15 years.
Before a vaccine became available about 50
years ago, nearly all children got measles by
their 15th birthday. In those days, nearly 500
Americans died from measles each year.
Now, the nation has about 60 cases each
year. But so far this year, officials have seen 159
cases. The highest count since the mid-1990s
was 222 in 2011.
Most young children are vaccinated against
measles. But outbreaks still occur, usually when
travelers pick up the measles virus abroad and
then spread it among unvaccinated people
Nearly all of this year’s cases have been
traced to travelers.
Please see Warnings, p. 2
“When your core, your trunk, your torso is
not stable, you use up more energy trying to
keep that stable and less on the power of your
legs.” she said. “Core muscles include not only
abdominals, but also lower back muscles, hip
and pelvic muscles.”
Prior to starting his core strengthening train-
ing, Howland had gone to see Kicker at the
Healthplex for back pain.
“We wanted to make sure his pelvis was
aligned correctly,” Kicker said. “We had a lot of
flexibility issues, so we did a lot of stretching,
and we started on initial core strengthening,
just basic things so not to aggravate the back.”
She said when the back is correctly aligned,
flexibility improves, allowing you to then work
on core strengthening.
“You work it all together, and it makes the
back more stable,” Kicker said.
She said she advises people wanting to start
core strengthening to first talk to a trained pro-
fessional about the correct exercises to perform
and how to advance them.
“On a therapy basis, you start to do some of
these (core) exercises on a daily basis,” Kicker
“But when you get to a level where your core
is strong and you’re on a good program, then
you can stick to two to three times a week of
doing the core exercises.
“Incorporate them in with cardiovascular
exercise and other weight lifting as well.”
Howland said he plans to initiate anoth-
er core development program for himself in
December and perform it through March.
“If three months of core training improved
my speed and fitness, what might four months
do?” Howland asked.

Inappropriate use of opioids caused more than
16,650 overdose deaths in 2010, up more than
12 percent from 2008, according to the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention.
Earlier this year the CDC reported that pre-
scription painkiller overdose deaths among
women increased about fivefold 1999 to 2010.
Among men, such deaths rose about 3
⁄2 times.
The rise in both death rates is closely tied to a
boom in the overall use of prescribed painkill-
The most prescribed medication in the U.S.
last year was the opioid combination pill Vico-
din and its generic equivalents, according to
IMS Health. U.S. pharmacies dispensed the
medication, which combines hydrocodone and
acetaminophen, over 135 million times in 2012.
However, Tuesday’s announcement does not
affect Vicodin because it uses an immediate
release formulation.
The products targeted by the FDA feature
extended-release formulations designed to
give long-lasting effects. But that potency car-
ries serious risks when doctors prescribe them
inappropriately, and when patients abuse them
as stimulants.
The FDA reports that many physicians pre-
scribe the painkillers for unapproved uses, such
as treating migraine headaches.
Patients will also sometimes chew extended-
release pills that are designed to be swallowed,
causing an overdose.

FDA approves Botox for crow’s feet
you have a high school reunion
coming up, here’s a medical
development that you may
want to keep an eye on.
Federal regulators for the
first time have approved Botox
injections to treat crow’s feet.
The Food and Drug Admin-
istration said last week that
Allergan’s Botox Cosmet-
ic injection is the first drug
approved to treat the wrinkles
that form on the outside edge
of the eyes.
Allergan studied the use of
the drug in 833 adults with
crow’s feet who randomly
received Botox or a sham
Patients who received
Botox had fewer visible wrin-
kles than those who received
the placebo drug.
The most common side
effects seen in patients were
swelling and excess liquid
around the eyelids.
The drug works by block-
ing the connections between
nerves and muscle, temporar-
ily paralyzing muscles to make
wrinkles less prominent. The
drug is a purified form of botu-
linum, one of the most toxic
substances in the world.
weight stigma
Weight Stigma Awareness
Week 2013 is Sept. 23-27. Why
do we need a Weight Stigma
Awareness Week? Doesn’t
everyone know that it
is bad to be fat?
Much of the infor-
mation that everyone
knows about weight is
questionable, at best.
Health and weight are
not the same; large
people can be healthy,
just as slender people
can be unhealthy.
Numerous medical
research studies show
that healthy behav-
iors, such as eating
well and being physi-
cally active, have much more
effect on health than weight
does. Even if weight loss did
make people healthier, there
is no known way to make that
happen reliably. People who
lose weight on diets, with
or without exercise, almost
always gain it back within a
couple of years, usually gain-
ing more than they lost.
Even so, the mispercep-
tion persists, that large people
should keep trying to do the
impossible and lose weight,
and that shaming people for
their weight is an effective
motivation. On the contrary,
research shows that shaming
and belittling people for their
weight leads to depression,
low self-esteem, poor health
behaviors, increased weight
and worse health. In fact, some
studies indicate that the stress
large people experience as a
result of weight stigma proba-
bly contributes to the
health problems that
are associated with
higher weight.
So, what can we
A more effective,
and proven, approach
is to focus on encour-
aging people to take
good care of them-
selves, regardless of
how much they weigh.
Eating a well balanced
diet with enough pro-
tein and fresh fruits
and vegetables, and engaging
in pleasurable physical activity
on a regular basis can improve
health measures even without
weight loss. This is true for
people of all sizes.
Weight stigma leads to
shaming and bullying behav-
ior, which leads to worse
health. Eliminating weight
stigma will improve health for
individuals and for society as
a whole. Awareness is the first

Study suggests early signs
of MS in spinal fluid
research suggests it might be
possible to spot early signs of
multiple sclerosis in patients’
spinal fluid, findings that offer
a new clue about how this
mysterious disease forms.
The study released last week
was small and must be verified
by additional research. But if it
pans out, the finding suggests
scientists should take a closer
look at a different part of the
brain than is usually linked
to MS.
“It really tells us that MS
may be affecting more parts
of the brain much earlier than
we anticipated,” said Timothy
Coetzee, chief research officer
at the National MS Society.
Coetzee wasn’t involved with
the new study.
Multiple sclerosis is a neu-
rological disease that causes
varying symptoms — numb-
ness and tingling in one per-
son, impaired walking and
vision loss in another — that
often wax and wane. There are
treatments but no cure. Doc-
tors don’t know what causes
MS, just that it occurs when the
protective insulation, called
myelin, that coats nerve fibers
is gradually destroyed, leaving
behind tough scar tissue. That
short-circuits messages from
the brain and spinal cord to
the rest of the body.
But because brain scans
can have trouble spotting
early damage, it’s hard to tell
whether someone experienc-
ing initial symptoms really
is developing MS and thus
should start treatment.
The new study used spinal
fluid as an alternative win-
dow into the brain to examine
those first attacks.
Please see MS study, p. 3
Dr. Steven Schutzer of Rut-
gers New Jersey Medical School
analyzed spinal fluid stored
from nine patients who had
experienced early symptoms
that turned out to be MS. Using
a special high-powered tech-
nology, he uncovered a small
cluster of proteins that was
unique to those first attacks.
Compared with spinal fluid
from healthy people and from
a dozen MS patients who’ve
had the disease longer, that sig-
nature distinguished the early
patients, Schutzer reported in
the journal PLoS One.
If larger studies prove the
value of these potential mark-
ers, doctors one day might do a
quick spinal tap to test for them
in people with early symp-
toms, said Dr. Patricia Coyle of
Stony Brook University in New
York, an MS specialist who
co-authored the study. Today,
doctors occasionally do spinal
taps on possible MS patients,
but they’re looking for differ-
ent substances that can signal
an autoimmune disease, not
specifically MS.
But the new study contained
a big surprise: The myelin
damage that is MS’ trademark
occurs in what’s called the
brain’s white matter, the fibers
that act like a telephone net-
work for brain cells to com-
municate. The proteins that
Schutzer found suggest there’s
also damage to the gray matter,
a different tissue that contains
the nerve cells themselves. Sci-
entists have known that gray
matter plays some role in MS,
but not what.
“That’s a striking finding,”
Coyle said, because it points to
potential new targets for thera-
pies. “These data suggest to us
the gray matter injury is critical
and happens early.”

cer were more likely to be can-
cer-free at the time of surgery
than women who received older
drug combinations. Although
the results come from mid-stage
trials of the drug, FDA scien-
tists recommended accelerating
approval of the drug.
That step is reserved for
groundbreaking drugs to treat
life-threatening diseases.
Perjeta was first approved
last summer to treat women
with a subtype of breast cancer
that has already spread to other
parts of the body. But Roche’s
Genentech unit is now seeking
approval to use the drug at a
much earlier stage of the dis-
ease: after diagnosis and before
surgery to remove the tumor.
Surgery to remove tumors is
the first step in treating virtually
all forms of cancer. If approved,
Perjeta would be the first can-
cer drug approved for use as
a pre-surgical step. Using can-
cer drugs before surgery is still
experimental, but doctors hope
the approach could help shrink
tumors to make them easier to
remove. In some breast cancer
cases, a tumor that is easier to
operate on could allow women
to keep their breasts, rather
than having them surgically
On Thursday, the FDA will
ask an outside panel of can-
cer specialists whether Perjeta’s
benefits outweigh its risks for
treating early-stage breast can-
cer. Among other questions, the
experts will be asked whether
the preliminary results report-
ed by Genentech are likely to
result in longer overall survival
for patients. The government
agency isn’t required to follow
the group’s advice, though it
often does.
The panel will review a 417-
woman study comparing Per-
jeta in different combinations
against older breast cancer treat-
ments. When Perjeta was com-
bined with Herceptin, another
Genentech drug, and standard
chemotherapy, 39 percent of
women saw their cancer reach
undetectable levels. Only 21
percent of women experienced
the same results from taking
Herceptin and chemotherapy
alone. After drug treatment all
the women received standard
breast surgery to remove any
cancerous tumors. Genen-
tech says this surgery allowed
researchers to confirm the pres-
ence or absence of cancer.
Last year the FDA released
guidelines for studying breast
cancer drugs in the pre-surgical
setting, with the aim of accel-
erating approval of promising
therapies. Perjeta is the first
drug to undergo FDA review
since those recommendations
were released. If approved, it
could encourage more drug-
makers to study cancer drugs
for early-stage use.
“Despite advances in sys-
temic therapy of breast cancer,
there remains a need to expedite
drug development and approval
of highly effective therapies for
patients with high-risk early-
stage breast cancer,” the FDA
states in its review.
First lady’s water campaign
raises environmental issue
— First lady Michelle Obama
led Wisconsin high school stu-
dents in a toast to “the best
drink in town” last week as
she launched a campaign to
encourage people to drink
more water — something she
said was the single best thing
Americans could do to improve
their health.
“Water is so basic, and
because it is so plentiful, some-
times we just forget about it
amid all the ads we watch on
television and all the messages
we receive every day about what
to eat and drink,” Mrs. Obama
said. “The truth is, water just
gets drowned out.”
The first lady launched the
campaign for the nonprofit
Partnership for a Healthier
America in Watertown in part
because the city has been rec-
ognized for the quality of its
While the new campaign is
widely viewed as encouraging
people to drink water rather
than sugary sodas, partnership
president and CEO Larry Soler
said it is not about pushing
a particular type of water or
stressing it over other bever-
Mrs. Obama has counseled
people in the past to switch
from soda to water and has
talked about seeing improve-
ment in her two daughters’
health after making that change
in their diets. She spoke Thurs-
day about seeing her daughters
become more alert after they
began drinking more water, but
she did not mention any switch
from soda.
The first lady long ago
backed away from criticism of
soda because her anti-child-
hood obesity initiative, “Let’s
Move,” is premised on the
idea that change won’t happen
without buy-in from the food
industry, New York University
food scientist Marion Nestle
The latest campaign is
backed by the American Bever-
age Association, which repre-
sents the makers of soft drinks,
sports drinks, energy drinks
and juices as well as bottled
water, and the International
Bottled Water Association.
Nestle said it actually helps
the major soft drink companies,
which have seen a decrease in
soda sales and are investing
heavily in promoting bottled
water brands and other drinks,
she said.
“This is a partnership with
soda companies to promote
their bottled waters,” Nestle
Environmental advocates
say they’re disappointed the
campaign ignores concerns
about plastic bottles ending up
in waterways and reductions
in federal funding for public
water systems.
“We applaud the first lady’s
initiative to encourage people
to choose water over sugary
beverages, but we do have con-
cerns that this partnership is
working in conjunction with
the bottled water industry and
wish that instead she were
encouraging people to choose
the much more affordable,
more regulated option of tap
water,” said Emily Wurth, water
program director for Food and
Water Watch.
Wurth cited a federal report
that found only one-fourth of
plastic water bottles are recy-
cled. She also noted that bot-
tled water often comes from
public water systems.
While Mrs. Obama did not
promote tap water over bottled
water, many public utility work-
ers in Wisconsin saw her visit as
an endorsement of their work.
Mrs. Obama noted Watertown
had been recognized as having
the best-tasting water in the
state — an award it received in
2010 from the Wisconsin Water
Association, which represents
public utilities.
“You know what you’re get-
ting with tap water because it’s
a regulated thing,” water asso-
ciation vice chair Ann-Perry
Witmer said. “It really is the
best tasting and the healthiest
for you.”
Watertown, about midway
between Milwaukee and Madi-
son, is home to Wis-Pak Inc.,
which manufactures and dis-
tributes Pepsi-Cola products
— including Aquafina. It’s also
home to 7-Up Bottling Co., a
family-owned business that
distributes bottled water and
other beverages.
Soler said after the first lady’s
speech the campaign would be
most successful by not advo-
cating one water source over
another, noting the choice of
what type of water to drink lies
with individuals.
Sam Kass, executive direc-
tor of “Let’s Move,” has cited
federal statistics showing about
40 percent of Americans drink
less than half the typically rec-
ommended eight cups of water
a day.
Nestle said the message that
Americans don’t drink enough
water is questionable.

Waking up to new concerns about caffeine
By Lee Bowman
Scripps Howard News Service
The increasing use of caffeine as
an additive in many foods and drinks
has attracted considerable scrutiny
from regulators and researchers. So
have proposals to add the stimulant
to such items as toothpaste or body
The Institute of Medicine last
month spent two days hosting a forum
on the potential health hazards of
caffeine consumption at the request
of the U.S. Food and Drug Admin-
istration, which in turn is trying to
decide if limits need to be imposed
on how much of the stimulant can be
added to various products.
That may take some time and more
research. The conference revealed
many gaps in scientific research into
how caffeine delivered in new ways
— such as in gum — may affect a
person’s total daily intake, and how
various doses may affect athletes,
young people and others.
There have been some reports of
deaths tied to consumption of ener-
gy drinks. The government says the
products were linked to some 20,000
emergency-room visits in 2011.
Right now, the FDA only regulates
caffeine that’s added to a food, drug or
other product, but not when it occurs
naturally. So, for instance, caffeine in
pain relievers and cold pills is labeled,
but the amounts contained in choco-
late in candy bars are not. Neither are
the amounts of caffeine included in
energy drinks sold as dietary supple-
Although people have been con-
suming caffeine for thousands of
years, no one can be entirely sure
what amounts to a safe or unsafe
dose of caffeine, although for most
people, the drug’s effects are mild and
transient. Definitive answers on the
possible benefits caffeine can bring
are also far off.
At the extreme, scientists have set
a toxic dose at somewhere around
10,000 milligrams. The average 8-
ounce cup of coffee has 80 to 125
milligrams. A moderate dose is con-
sidered two to four cups a day.
Consuming 500 to 600 milligrams a
day is enough to cause effects such as
insomnia, nervousness, upset stom-
ach, fast heartbeat or muscle spasms
in many people.
The stimulant can be dangerous
for people with heart-rhythm prob-
lems and high blood pressure, among
other medical conditions.
And an estimated 20 percent of the
population is thought to be caffeine-
sensitive, to the point that just a few
milligrams can produce the jitters or
other problems.
On the flip side, the compound’s
effects on the nervous system may
benefit short-term memory. Several
studies have found a decreased risk of
liver disease among those who con-
sume a four-cup dose of caffeine on
a daily basis.
Some studies have linked an
increase in caffeine consumption with
a higher risk of miscarriage among
pregnant women. The FDA advises
pregnant women to avoid or limit caf-
feine intake.
Even if you want to monitor your
caffeine intake from drinks, it can be
The amount can vary depending
on how long or by what process a
beverage is steeped or brewed. And
since the effects of caffeine we ingest
are usually felt within about 45 min-
utes, hot drinks that are sipped may
have a different impact than cooler
beverages that might be gulped or
Half the caffeine a person takes in
gets eliminated in five or six hours,
but men and smokers process it faster
than women and nonsmokers.
Women on oral contraceptives
break it down more slowly than oth-
ers, while menstrual cycles may also
play a role. Some studies have found
lower estrogen levels in women who
drink more than 200 mg a day.
For those who want to track con-
sumption, color-changing caffeine
test strips can tell whether a drink
really is decaffeinated. The strips gen-
erally can distinguish a high-test brew
from a low-test one. Federal regula-
tions require that a product sold as
decaf has to have 97.5 percent of caf-
feine removed, but consumer testing
has shown that can leave 3 milligrams
to dozens of milligrams in a serving.
But a new sensor kit, developed
by scientists in Singapore and South
Korea, applies a lab-on-a-disc tech-
nology to detect caffeine across a traf-
fic-light-style spectrum of doses.
The sensor device, dubbed Caf-
feine Orange, works by exposing a
drink sample to a green laser pointer,
which then triggers a chemical reac-
tion that lights up the sensor. High
caffeine concentrations from coffee
or energy drinks turn the sensor dis-
play reddish-orange, while teas and
decaf drinks show up as yellow and
The new device was described in a
paper published in July in the journal
Scientific Reports.

implant to treat men’s uri-
nary problems caused by an

istration says it approved the

tate tissue that presses against

More than half of men in

options include drug therapy

Aging US faces crisis in cancer care
U.S. is facing a crisis in how
to deliver cancer care, as the
baby boomers reach their
tumor-prone years and doc-
tors have a hard time keeping
up with complex new treat-
ments, government advisers
reported Tuesday.
The caution comes even as
scientists are learning more
than ever about better ways to
battle cancer, and developing
innovative therapies to target
And while doctors try to
optimize treatment, the Insti-
tute of Medicine found “daunt-
ing” barriers to achieving high-
quality care for all patients.
Overcoming those challenges
will require changes to the
health care system, and sav-
vier consumers.
“We do not want to frighten
or scare people who are get-
ting care now,” said Dr. Patri-
cia Ganz, a cancer specialist
at the University of California,
Los Angeles, who chaired the
But too often, decisions
about cancer treatments aren’t
based on good evidence, and
patients may not understand
their choices and what to
expect, the panel found. For
example, some studies suggest
that two-thirds or more of can-
cer patients with poor prog-
noses incorrectly believe the
treatments they receive could
cure them.
Topping the list of recom-
mendations is finding ways
to help patients make more
informed decisions, with easy-
to-understand information on
the pros, cons and costs of dif-
ferent treatments.
“The patient can’t be pas-
sive,” Ganz said. “It’s an
important partnership that we
The risk of cancer increas-
es with age, and older adults
account for just over half of
the 1.6 million new cases
diagnosed each year. By 2030,
new diagnoses are expected
to reach 2.3 million a year
as the population ages. The
report warns there may not be
enough oncology specialists to
care for them.
Perhaps a bigger concern
is the growing complexity of
care. Increasingly, scientists
are finding genetic differ-
ences inside tumors that help
explain why one person’s can-
cer is more aggressive than
another’s. More importantly,
that also means certain cancer
drugs will work for, say, lung
cancer in one person but not
the next.
“If your doctor doesn’t know
that, or your hospital doesn’t
do the test, you don’t have that
opportunity” for newer, target-
ed therapies, Ganz said. But,
“we are living in an informa-
tion age where it’s impossible
to keep up.”
It’s not just a matter of
knowing the latest treatments,
but deciding if they’re worth it
for an individual patient. Con-
sider: Of 13 cancer treatments
approved by the Food and
Drug Administration last year,
only one was proven to extend
survival by more than a medi-
an of six months, the report
said. The drugs all cost more
than $5,900 for each month of
For older adults, treatment
decisions may be even more
complicated — because the
studies that test different ther-
apies don’t include enough
people over age 65, who tend
to have multiple health prob-
lems along with cancer, Ganz
Nor are cancer teams doing
a good enough job in edu-
cating and training patients’
loved ones to offer the at-home
care that many need for long
stretches of time, she said.
The Institute of Medicine
advises the government about
health issues. Among its rec-
ommendations are: more
research to tease out how to
best treat different patients;
new strategies to help doctors
keep up with that evidence;
and development of tools to
help communicate the choices
to patients so they understand
what really may happen to
In the meantime, the panel
had some advice for people
who need to know if they’re
getting quality care now. Take
the time to research care
options and get a second opin-
ion, Ganz stressed. Among the
questions to ask:
• How long does the average
person with this cancer live?
• What is my likelihood of
a cure?
• If I can’t be cured, will
I live longer with treatment?
How much longer?
• Will this care directly treat
the cancer, or improve my
symptoms, or both?
• What are the side effects?
• Am I healthy enough to
try this treatment, or will my
other health conditions and
medications interfere?
• How many times have you
done this procedure?
• What does the care cost?
• Am I eligible for clinical
If your health team doesn’t
have answers, “you need to
find another set of providers,”
Ganz said.

chaired an Institute of Medicine panel that found the U.S. is
facing a crisis in how to deliver cancer care, as the population
ages and treatment becomes increasingly complex.
