Crews racing
floodwaters to
build up levee
The Associated Press
Crews are trying to beat flood-
waters expected to arrive in
Hamburg today by building
up a secondary barrier to pro-
tect the small Iowa town after
the swollen Missouri River
punched a massive hole in the
main levee.
The river ruptured two
levees in northwest Missouri
on Monday, sending torrents
of water over rural farmland
toward Hamburg in south-
west Iowa and a Missouri
resort community downriver.
By Wednesday, water spill-
ing through a nearly 300-
foot hole in the levee near
Hamburg was expected to top
a secondary levee built last
week to protect the town.
The Army Corps of
Engineers said crews are
working to increase that
wall’s height by 3 feet. If
it breaks, parts of Hamburg
could be under as much as 10
feet of standing water, offi-
cials said.
“For right now, we believe
we’ll be able to get that
elevation raised in the time
available as that water flows
across in the next 48 hours,”
Col. Bob Ruch, the corps’
Omaha District commander,
said Monday evening. “We’ve
had excellent working condi-
Across the border in
Missouri, the river broke a
225-foot-wide hole through
a levee near Big Lake in Holt
County. About 30 residents
had stayed in the resort town
after the river started rising,
but they were told to leave
Monday. Big Lake is about
45 miles south of Hamburg.
The Army Corps of
Engineers has steadily
increased the amount of water
it is releasing from dams along

Western wildfires fanned
by windy, dry conditions
The Associated Press
LUNA, N.M. — Wildfires
forced thousands of people
from their homes in Arizona
and Colorado as firefighters
fought to keep one massive
blaze out of New Mexico,
where flare-ups that skipped
along treetops threatened a
small mountain town.
Arizona’s massive Wallow
fire, burning since May 29,
had grown to 706 square
miles, or more than 452,000
acres, by Monday as contain-
ment increased to 18 percent.
It burned perilously close to
the New Mexico state line,
just about a mile from the
working-class community of
Luna, where residents were
warned to be prepared to
In the state’s opposite cor-
ner, near the Colorado bor-
der, a wildfire fanned by high
winds that has forced hun-
dreds of people from their
homes more than doubled in
size to an estimated 6,000
“We’re watching trees
explode before our eyes. It’s
horrendous,” said Barbara
Riley, a schoolteacher and
bed-and-breakfast owner in
the northeastern New Mexico
community of Raton. A
20-mile section of the main
north-south highway through
New Mexico and Colorado
remained closed, causing
hundreds of travelers to drive
hours out of their way.
Crews worked furiously to
protect Luna from the Wallow
fire, after a successful week-
end of no major fire growth
despite gusting winds and dry
Hundreds of firefighters
worked along U.S. Highway
180 between Luna and the
state line, hacking down
brush, using chain saws to
cut trees, and burning fuel in
the fire’s path.
At Luna Lake in Arizona,
just a few miles from town,
helicopters collected water
and flew west to attack
flames sending up thick, gray
Cat r on Count y
Undersheriff Ian Fletcher said
the roughly 200 Luna resi-
dents hadn’t yet been ordered
to leave, but evacuation plans
were in place.
Fire spokesman Sean
Johnson said the work crews
have done clearing brush and
setting their own fires to burn
off fuel along the state line

the inferno.
“That’s what’s saved the
town,” Johnson said. “The
line is holding. There’s no
fire in New Mexico that we
haven’t set ourselves.”
Syrian tanks, troops extend reach in to Iraqi border areas
The Associated Press
— Syrian tanks pushed
toward more towns and vil-
lages near the Turkish and
Iraqi borders today, expand-
ing the crackdown against a
12-week uprising to the north
and east as more Syrians flee
their homes.
Syrian President Bashar
Assad appears to have aban-
doned all pretense of offer-
ing reform, sending tanks,
helicopter gunships and only
his most loyal forces into
population centers to crush
Anti-government activists
reported tanks in the north-
ern market town of Maaret
al-Numan and in smaller vil-
lages near Jisr al-Shughour,
a town stormed Sunday by
Syrian elite forces backed by
Human rights activist
Mustafa Osso said tanks were
also moving in the large east-
ern province of Deir el-Zour,
which borders Iraq. The
Syrian government claimed
to have thwarted cross-border
weapons smuggling in that
The growing military cam-
paign has sent some 8,000
Syrians fleeing for their lives
to neighboring Turkey, where
they offer a grim picture of
what they left behind.
Troops “damage homes
and buildings, kill even ani-
mals, set trees and farmlands
on fire,” said Mohammad
Hesnawi, 26, who fled Jisr al-
Shughour. He accused pro-
government militias known
as “shabiha” of atrocities
Turkish authorities were
giving priority to women and
children fleeing the border
village of al-Hasaniya, where
people “are eating fruit out
of the trees, including apples
and cherries,” since there’s
not enough food for all,
Hesnawi said.
Only sketchy reports are
emerging from the embattled
northern area, since foreign
journalists have been expelled
from Syria.
Some analysts have said
Assad is trying to keep the
opposition from establishing
a base, as happened in Libya,
where the rebels trying to
overthrow Moammar Gadhafi
took over the coastal city of
Benghazi. Assad initially had
promised mild reforms, but
his gestures have been reject-
ed by the thousands who
have staged protests across
Syria, who say they won’t
stop until he leaves power,
ending his family’s 40-year
ruling dynasty.
It’s a scenario that also
played out in Tunisia and
Egypt, where popular
demands increased almost
daily until people accepted
nothing less than the regime’s
In the past week, as the
government appeared to be
on the verge of losing con-
trol of major swaths of the
country, it abandoned most
pretenses at reform.
The brutal crackdown on
the uprising, the most seri-
ous threat to the Assad fam-
ily’s power, has altered a view
held by many in Syria and
abroad of Assad as a reformer
at heart, one constrained by
members of his late father’s
old guard who were fight-
ing change, especially privi-
leged members of the Assads’
minority Alawite sect, an off-
shoot of Shiite Islam.
After inheriting power 11
years ago from his father,
the late Hafez al-Assad,
the president cultivated the
image of a modernizer in a
stagnant dictatorship. But he
has had to juggle many fac-
tors in the Syrian political
landscape: its sizable minor-
ity populations; a majority
Sunni population drawn in
part to Muslim fundamental-
ism; an influential military,
and alliances with such exter-
nal Shiite forces as Iran and
Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
Most of the major military
operations have been carried
out in border areas, including
Jisr al-Shughour, the south-
ern city of Daraa, near the
border with Jordan, and the
central province of Homs,
bordering Lebanon.
Activists say more than
1,400 Syrians have died
and some 10,000 have been
detained in the government
crackdown since the popu-
lar uprising began in mid-

Prosecutors said Monday they
are almost finished presenting
their evidence in the murder
trial of Casey Anthony, who is
accused of killing her 2-year-
old daughter nearly three
years ago.
Jurors heard testimony
from two more FBI forensic
experts as the trial entered
its fourth week and the state
continued to try to link toddler
Caylee Anthony’s decompos-
ing remains to her mother.
A hair and fiber expert tes-
tified that a strand of hair
found in the trunk of Casey
Anthony’s car could have
fallen from the child’s head
during the movement of her
dead body. Another expert,
who tested for fingerprints
on three strips of duct tape
found attached to the toddler’s
decomposed skull, said that
she observed a heart-shaped
outline on one of the pieces.
Anthony is charged with
first-degree murder in the
death of her daughter and faces
a death sentence if convicted.
She has pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors contend Anthony
suffocated Caylee with duct
tape, while the defense says
she drowned in her grandpar-
ents’ pool.
The child was not report-
ed missing for 31 days. Her
remains were found in a
wooded area near the Anthony
home in December 2008.
The experts were the lone
witnesses called on Monday.
Judge Belvin Perry recessed
for the day just after noon
because the prosecution said
their next witness wouldn’t
arrive until Tuesday.
The state has also notified
Perry that it could conclude its
case as early as Wednesday.
Depending on the length of
the defense’s case, Perry told
the jury he thinks they could
begin deliberating during the
last week of June.
“So far we are ahead of
schedule,” Perry told them,
while noting it was just an
estimate at this point.
The first witness of the
day, fiber investigator Stephen
Shaw, told jurors he analyzed
the single hair found in Casey
Anthony’s trunk and com-
pared it to samples found with
Caylee Anthony’s skull.
Shaw testified that he saw
more evidence of human
decomposition on the hairs
taken from the child’s remains
than on the hair found in the
trunk. That suggests that if
there were a body in Anthony’s
trunk, it wasn’t there for very
He also said he found the
same microscopic character-
istics for the skull hair as the
trunk hair, but could not say
they definitely were a match.
But Perry ruled that pros-
ecutors could not show jurors
an electronic presentation of
the hair analysis that would
have been more detailed than
verbal testimony and shown
a visual representation of hair
Perry said he found it trou-
bling that the contents of the
study were not shared with
defense attorneys ahead of
time. Jurors waited outside
the courtroom for about 20
minutes while the issue was
Defense attorney Jose Baez
also later got Shaw to say on
cross-examination that expo-
sure to the elements could
cause scientists to misidentify
the presence of decomposition
in hair.
FBI physical scientist
Elizabeth Fontaine said that
her examination of duct tape
found at the crime scene didn’t
yield any latent fingerprints.
But she testified that she did
notice the outline of a heart on
one of the three pieces while
examining it under ultra-violet
There were no pictures
taken of what she saw, though.
After subjecting the tape to
chemicals during further fin-
gerprint testing, it was no lon-
ger present.
The prosecution said in
their opening statement that
they believe the outline was a
heart-shaped sticker.

Areas in Montana, North
Dakota and South Dakota,
have already seen some flood-
ing, and officials predict the
problems will linger through
the summer.
National Weather Service
hydrologist Dave Pearson
described the breach near
Hamburg as “pretty sub-
stantial.” He said water was
“flowing through quickly”
but still must cross several
miles of rural land to reach the
Hamburg area.
It wasn’t clear how deep
the floodwaters approaching
Hamburg were or whether
they would prove too much
for the secondary levee. Local
officials posted video of the
breach that showed the water
spreading over a large area of
Terry Holliman, who owns
an auto parts store in the town
of about 1,100 residents, said
water was shooting into farm-
land near one of three spots
where the levee had previ-
ously leaked.
“It’s impressive,” Holliman
said early Monday. “The force
is unbelievable.”
About 300 Hamburg res-
idents left their homes and
businesses last week under an
evacuation order after partial
breaches in the main levee,
which is about 5 miles south in
rural Atchison County, Mo.
The Army Corps of
Engineers has been building up
the secondary levee to protect
low-lying areas of Hamburg
since the partial breaches.
Officials had been able to sta-
bilize the initial leaks but had
predicted the main levee even-
tually would fail.
Corps projections show
that if the secondary levee
fails, the volume of water
released upstream during a
levee break could leave 8 to
10 feet of standing water in
southern Hamburg. The area
includes manufacturing and
agricultural businesses. Water
could reach the fire station
and City Hall, but it likely
wouldn’t reach the northern
part of town where most resi-
dents live.
Longtime resident Pat Stoop
was among those in flood-
threatened neighborhoods who
were hauling the last of their
belongings out of their nearly
empty houses Monday. The
last time her home flooded, in
1993, the water barely crept
over the floor, but it stayed for
weeks. When she returned, her
ceiling fan was covered in 3
inches of mold.
She’s now considering a
permanent move from the
home where she’s lived for
more than four decades. Stoop
said she was “thinking about
40 different things at once ...
You start to do something,
and then another thing, and
before you know it you have
40 balls in the air. And you
keep dropping them.”
Iowa officials said they
would close more than 20 miles
of Interstate 29 in southwest
Iowa and northwest Missouri
by Thursday. Northbound
lanes near Hamburg will be
lined with about 7,500 feet of
flood barriers, Ruch said.
In Missouri, Holt County
officials said the second levee
breach occurred about 5 miles
northwest of Big Lake. Most
of the town’s roughly 150
residents left before Monday
and Big Lake State Park was
already closed.

SYDNEY (AP) — More
Australian flights were can-
celed today because of ash
from a Chilean volcano, this
time out of a midsize southern
airport, as airlines scrambled
to fly out thousands of passen-
gers who had been stranded
for two days in Melbourne.
National carrier Qantas and
budget airline Jetstar said they
planned to add capacity to and
from Melbourne, Australia’s
second-largest city, and hoped
to get all passengers in the air
by the end of the day.
More than 60,000 pas-
sengers had been stranded
through Monday in Australia
but it was unclear how many
people were still stranded in
Melbourne as flights resumed
Meanwhile, about two
dozen flights into and out of
the southern city of Adelaide
were canceled today. The
grounded flights included ser-
vice by budget carrier Tiger
Airways, which also canceled
a flight between Melbourne
and the western city of Perth
because the route would
require planes to cross through
the ash cloud.
Qantas, Jetstar and Tiger
said late today that all their
mainland Australian routes
would be open Wednesday
morning, including to and
from Adelaide. But flights to
the island state of Tasmania
and New Zealand would
remain grounded Wednesday
morning, as they have since
Ash has moved across the
Pacific from Chile where a
volcano has been erupting
since June 4. Particles in the
ash can damage jet engines,
and flights in Chile and other
South American countries
have been grounded at times
as well.
New Zealand’s Civil
Aviation Authority said today
that the ash will be back in
Chile soon, after having cir-
cled the globe. Even if the
eruption stops now, however,
the agency said, Australia
and New Zealand can expect
at least another week of ash
clouds in their airspace.
Australia’s Volcanic Ash
Advisory Centre said flights
could be affected for several days,
mostly in southeastern Australia,
which includes Tasmania and
Melbourne. Adelaide is about
halfway across Australia’s
southern coast.
“We were worried about
it potentially pushing up to
Canberra and Sydney, but
that’s less of a concern for us
now,” Andrew Tupper, head
of the center, told the Australia
Broadcasting Corp.
National carrier Air New
Zealand never suspended
service, instead choosing to
divert flights and alter alti-
tudes. Virgin Australia is using
similar methods, but Qantas
has repeatedly rejected flying
below the cloud.
Virgin Australia, which
initially canceled similar
routes but resumed all flights
Monday, expects to have
worked through its backlog by
the end of today, according to
spokesman Colin Lippiatt.
The flight warnings and
disruptions come 14 months
after air traffic was grounded
across Europe after the erup-

Roughly 7,000 residents of
the two Arizona mountain towns
of Eagar and Springerville on
the fire’s northern edge were
allowed back home over the
weekend. Crews had stopped
the blaze’s northern advance and
were trying to corral its eastern
push into New Mexico.
Officials continued to express
optimism that their efforts were
paying off.
“It’s getting better every
day,” said fire spokesman Kelly
The blaze is the second largest
in Arizona’s history, although it
has burned only 31 homes, four
rental cabins and 36 outbuild-
ings. The state’s largest blaze,
the 2002 Rodeo-Chediski fire,
burned 732 square miles and
destroyed 491 buildings.
About 2,700 people who live
in several Arizona resort commu-
nities in the Apache-Sitgreaves
National Forest remained under
an evacuation order. Fire offi-
cials said they were working to
make the picturesque hamlets of
Alpine, Nutrioso and Greer safe
for residents to go home, pos-
sibly within the week.
Greer, considered the jewel of
eastern Arizona’s summer havens,
lost more than 20 homes and a cou-
ple dozen outbuildings as flames
moved into the valley last week.
The wildfire near the New
Mexico-Colorado border start-
ed Sunday on the west side of
Interstate 25 and jumped to the
east side later that day. Up to
1,000 people were asked to leave
their homes northeast of Raton.

LANDEN (AP) — On a
recent weekend in a restaurant
in a tiny southeastern Texas vil-
lage, a stranger handed a south-
west Ohio woman the most pre-
cious gift she has ever received.
It was just a tiny, rectangular
piece of aluminum — a military
dog tag — stamped with some
lettering: “Vordenberg, Wesley
P./Tetanus shot 1942.”
It was the dog tag that had
belonged to Fran Uecker’s
father, a World War II vet-
eran of the Army Air Force
who passed away in 1992 after
a long career as a professor of
education at Xavier University.
And the story of how it came
into her possession, said Uecker,
of Landen, “is nothing short of a
It began about 10 years
ago, in the village of Blessing,
Texas, where Jack Hodge, a
Vietnam veteran, was working
in his garden and saw a shiny
object wedged in the ground
under a tree. Hodge dug it up
and knew at once what it was,
having worn dog tags during his
own Army days.
He knew many soldiers and
airmen had trained in nearby
Victoria, Texas, during World
War II and wondered if the man
who had worn the dog tag was
still living. Years later, Hodge
told his friend Tom Cleere about
his discovery; and Cleere, about
five years ago, told the story to
his niece, Gail Cleere, a fed-
eral government employee in
Washington, D.C., who wanted
to help solve the mystery.
She contacted a military
historian, who could only
tell her that Vordenberg was
from Maineville, Ohio, was a
Protestant, and had had a teta-
nus shot in 1942.
Cleere began calling all the
Vordenbergs she could find in
Ohio and surrounding states,
coming up empty. Then, she
made a call to Warren County
Historical Society to check buri-
al records and someone recalled
a Vordenberg at Xavier.
She called Xavier, and the
university put her in touch with
Joe Wessling, a retired professor
and a close friend of Vordenberg
and had written an obituary for
him when he died.
“Of course, I knew of Wes’
military service and knew it had
to be him, so I put Gail in touch
with Fran,” Wessling said.
Cleere and Uecker had an
emotional phone conversation
and began making plans for a
reunion in Texas, where Hodge
would turn over the dog tag that
had been half-buried in his gar-
den for decades.
That reunion took place June
6 in the Outrigger Restaurant in
Palacios, Texas, where Cleere
told the story of the search for
Wesley Vordenberg.
“When Jack presented me with
the dog tag, I felt Daddy next to
me and broke into tears,” Uecker
said. “I now have something my
father wore close to his heart and
I can’t tell you how emotional I
have been ever since.”
The only question now is
how it ended up in Hodge’s
garden. Uecker has her own
theory on that — one that draws
on how well she knew her father
and her late mother, Lola, who
were a young married couple
living near the Army Air Force
base in Victoria in 1942.
Vordenberg rose to the rank
of captain in the Army Air
Force and served in the Pacific
Theater, training reconnaissance
The base in Victoria was a
major training facility for the
Army Air Force during World
War II and the young, just-mar-
ried airman was one of thou-
sands who passed through on
their way to the war zone.
Uecker — who was born
three years after the war ended
— has no way of knowing, but
her idea is this — her parents
loved music, loved the theater,
loved entertainment.
She can see them, in 1942,
taking the short trip from
Victoria to Palacios to the
Luther Hotel, where there was
a pavilion that was the site of
many USO shows to entertain
the troops — performers like
Rita Hayworth, the Tommy
Dorsey Band and many others
played there.

State officials are seeking
federal money to test wheth-
er crude oil can be drawn
from old Ohio oil fields by
pumping carbon dioxide
from power plants and other
sources into the ground — a
process that has drawn con-
cern from environmentalists.
The process used in
California and Texas for
decades increases the pres-
sure underground and mixes
with the oil, freeing it from
nooks and crannies. It was
tested by Ohio in 2008 at a
low-yield well southeast of
Canton and resulted in a 58
percent increase in produc-
tion, The Columbus Dispatch
reported Monday.
Pumping carbon dioxide
into wells at the 175,000-
acre East Canton oil field
test site in Carroll, Harrison,
Stark and Tuscarawas coun-
ties could draw as much as
279 million barrels from the
field, officials estimate.
“It lightens the oil.
It fluffs it up,” Larry
Wickstrom, chief of the
Ohio Geological Survey,
told the newspaper. “It actu-
ally makes it so you can push
(the oil) through.”
Officials hope the U.S.
Department of Energy will
approve an $11 million fed-
eral grant to help finance
testing by researchers at the
Battelle Memorial Institute
headquartered in Columbus,
Wickstrom said.
Other sources for the esti-
mated $16 million needed
for testing include industrial
partners and possibly the
state, Wickstrom told The
Associated Press.
Environmentalists are
concerned that using car-
bon dioxide would lead to
increased pollution.
“I doubt carbon dioxide’s
ability to remain under-
ground,” Nachy Kanfer,
Midwest coordinator of the
Sierra Club’s coal-to-clean
energy campaign, told The
Kanfer said there is con-
cern about carbon dioxide
returning to the surface with
the oil and about fractures
and holes in old oil fields
that could allow leaks that
would be difficult to moni-
Wickstrom says that the
first thing looked at is the
“integrity of the site,” and
that once fields are in full
production, carbon dioxide
returning to the surface with
the oil “can be recaptured
and re-injected.”
Another concern is that
carbon dioxide might come
eventually from coal-fired
power plants and deter utili-
ties from moving to cleaner
energy sources, Kanfer said.
“The use of coal has been
declining for the last several
years,” Kanfer told the AP.
“Instead of spending money
on something that may or
may not work, we should
spend it on cleaner energy.”
Injecting carbon dioxide
to recover oil hasn’t been
used in Ohio because there is
not a readily available supply
of the gas, and much of what
has been used in other areas
is naturally occurring carbon
dioxide, Wickstrom said.
Man-made sources
include ethanol plants, nat-
ural gas processing plants,
cement kilns and methane
from landfills. Coal-fired
power plants also could be
a possible source eventually,
but “there is no economi-
cal technology ready yet”
that would allow plants to
separate a pure carbon diox-
ide stream from other gases,
Wickstrom said.
The object of the carbon
dioxide testing is to determine
whether it can be used effi-
ciently in Ohio to “increase
oil production,” and not to
determine eventual sources
of the gas, Wickstrom said.
Ohio’s old oil fields are
nearing the end of their pri-
mary life, and “we need to
look at this before they are
completely abandoned,” he

M A N C H E S T E R ,
N.H. — Republican White
House hopefuls condemned
President Barack Obama’s
handling of the economy from
the opening moments of their
first major debate of the cam-
paign season Monday night,
and pledged emphatically to
repeal his historic year-old
health care overhaul.
“When 14 million
Americans are out of work
we need a new president to
end the Obama Depression,”
declared former House
Speaker Newt Gingrich, the
first among seven contenders
on stage to criticize the presi-
dent’s economic policies.
Rep. Michele Bachmann
of Minnesota, invited as an
unannounced contender for
the 2012 nomination, upstaged
her rivals for a moment, using
a nationwide television audi-
ence to announce she had
filed papers earlier in the day
to run — a disclosure in keep-
ing with a feisty style she has
employed in a bid to become
a favorite of tea party voters.
Obama was hundreds of
miles away on a day in which
he blended a pledge to help
companies create jobs in
North Carolina with a series
of campaign fundraisers in
Florida. He won the two states
in 2008, and both figure to be
battlegrounds in 2012.
The New Hampshire event
unfolded more than six months
before the state hosts the first
primary of the 2012 campaign,
and the Republicans who
shared a stage were plainly
more interested in criticizing
Obama than one another.
Former Massachusetts Gov.
Mitt Romney, who first sought
the nomination in 2008, was
the nominal front-runner as the
curtain rose on the debate. But
public opinion polls that made
him so are notoriously unreli-
able at this point, when rela-
tively few voters have begun
to familiarize themselves with
their choices.
Already, this race has had
its share of surprises.
Several likely candi-
dates decided not to run
— Mississippi Gov. Haley
Barbour and Indiana Gov.
Mitch Daniels among them
— and at least one who ruled
out a race is reconsidering.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry has
said he will decide after the
state Legislature completes its
current session, and former
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s
plans are still unknown.
Gingrich, quick off the
mark in attacking Obama,
suffered the mass exodus
of the entire top echelon of
his campaign last week, an
unprecedented event that left
his chances of winning the
nomination in tatters.
All seven flashed their anti-
abortion credentials, and were
largely unified in opposition
to same-sex marriage, which
is legal in New Hampshire.
Several praised a pro-
posed amendment to the U.S.
Constitution that would define
marriage as between one man
and one woman, a position pop-
ular among conservative voters.
Bachmann said she supported
that, but added that states have
the right to write their own laws
and said if elected president,
she would not step into state
politics — a nod to tea partyers
who cherish the Constitution’s
10th Amendment.
Obama’s rivals found little
if anything to like in what
the president has done since
taking office in the midst of
the worst economic recession
since the Great Depression.
Former Sen. Rick Santorum
accused Obama of pursuing
“oppressive policies” that
have shackled the economy.
Former Minnesota Gov.
Tim Pawlenty labeled Obama
a “declinist” who views
America “as one of equals
around the world,” rather than
a special nation.
“If Brazil can have 5 per-
cent growth, if China can
have 5 percent growth, then
America can have 5 percent
growth,” he added, shrugging
off criticism that his own
economic projections were
impossibly rosy.
Associated Press
— President Barack Obama,
increasing pressure on Rep.
Anthony Weiner to quit, said
Monday that “I can tell you
that if it was me, I would
In a rare foray into a con-
gressman’s ethical conduct,
Obama told NBC’s “Today”
show that Weiner’s sexually
charged photos and messages
online to several women were
“highly inappropriate.”
“I think he’s embarrassed
himself. He’s acknowledged
that. He’s embarrassed his wife
and his family. Ultimately,
there’s gonna be a decision
for him and his constituents. I
can tell you that, if it was me,
I would resign,” the president
said in an interview to air this
Obama said public service
“is exactly that, it’s a ser-
vice to the public. And when
you get to the point where,
because of various personal
distractions, you can’t serve
as effectively as you need to
at the time when people are
worrying about jobs, and their
mortgages, and paying the
bills, then you should prob-
ably step back.”
Weiner spokeswoman Risa
Heller had no comment on
Obama’s remarks.
House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi has called for
Weiner to quit, as have sev-
eral other Democrats includ-
ing party chairwoman Debbie
Wasserman Schultz.
The House Ethics
Committee on Monday began
a preliminary inquiry that
could bloom into a full inves-
tigation if Weiner, a New
York Democrat, ignores calls
to resign.
House officials told The
Associated Press that the eth-
ics inquiry is not yet exten-
sive, and committee leaders
have not indicated whether
they will order a more inten-
sive staff investigation. The
officials requested anonymity
because the committee has not
announced the staff inquiry.
If Weiner did resign, the
committee would no longer
have jurisdiction to investi-
gate him. If he remained in
Congress, Ethics Committee
Chairman Jo Bonner of
Alabama and ranking
Democrat Linda Sanchez
of California could name a
four-member subcommittee
to conduct a more thorough
investigation. That could lead
to an ethics trial.
The Ethics Committee
is not designed as a quick-
reaction force when a scandal
erupts. An investigation could
last months, even longer, if
the case became legally com-
plicated and Weiner decided
to mount a full defense.
If the committee decides
that a member violated the
rules, its options include issu-
ing a written rebuke, rec-
ommending the House vote
to censure the lawmaker or
recommending expelling
the member by a two-thirds
Congress returned to work
Monday as Weiner began a
leave of absence while seeking
treatment for an undisclosed
disorder at an undisclosed
location. House members can
seek leaves of absence, which
are routinely granted, and
the House approved without
objection a two-week leave for
Weiner at the close of legisla-
tive business Monday night.
The Weiner scandal, head-
ing into its third week, has
been a huge embarrassment
to Democrats, who are eager
to put the controversy behind
Weiner is expected to be a
dominant topic when House
Democrats meet today. They
could try to oust Weiner from
the caucus or try to strip him
of his committee assignment
on the Energy and Commerce
Weiner’s vow to seek treat-
ment and to work to repair his
tattered reputation did little to
ease the furor.
Republicans suggested
that Pelosi was not tough
enough on Weiner. Michael
Steel, a press aide to House
Speaker John Boehner, said in
an email that Weiner’s inten-
tion to seek a leave of absence
“puts the focus” on Pelosi.
House Majority Leader
Eric Cantor, R-Va., who has
called for Weiner to resign,
said if Weiner does not leave,
Democrats should consider
taking away his committee
Associated Press
The best cure for the economy
now is time.
That’s the overwhelming
opinion of leading economists
in a new Associated Press
survey. They say the Federal
Reserve shouldn’t try to stimu-
late the economy — and could
actually do damage if it did.
The economists are low-
ering their forecasts for job
creation and economic growth
for the rest of this year, mainly
because of high oil prices.
A batch of bleak data over
the past month has suggested
that the 2-year-old economic
recovery is slowing.
Economists expect the na-
tion to create 1.9 million jobs
this year, about 200,000 fewer
than when they were last sur-
veyed eight weeks ago. They
expect the unemployment
rate, now 9.1 percent, to be 8.7
percent at year’s end. Before,
they expected 8.4 percent.
Despite their gloomier out-
look, 36 of the 38 economists
surveyed oppose any further
efforts by the Fed to invigorate
growth. The Fed has already
cut short-term interest rates
to near zero. And it’s ending
a program to buy $600 bil-
lion in Treasury bonds to keep
longer-term rates low to help
spur spending and hiring.
The economists say anoth-
er round of bond-buying
wouldn’t provide much ben-
efit, if any. And some fear it
could make things worse by
unleashing high inflation and
disrupting financial markets.
When it buys bonds, the
Fed in effect prints massive
amounts of money. All that
extra money in the system
raises the nominal value of
the things we buy, weakening
the dollar, and it can create
bubbles in the prices of stocks
and commodities.
What the economy needs
most, says John Silvia, chief
economist at Wells Fargo, is
time. Consumers must further
shrink huge debts amassed
in the mid-2000s. And the
depressed housing market
needs time to recover from a
collapse in prices and sales.
“There are no magic bul-
lets,” Silvia says. “A lot of this
stuff just really needs to be
dealt with. It’s not a question
of stimulus.”
In Washington, there’s little
appetite for major spending
projects to try to strengthen
the economy. Lawmakers are
focused on whether to raise the
nation’s borrowing limit and
how to cut its long-term debt.
President Barack Obama is
seeking smaller ways to spur
hiring. He traveled Monday
to Durham, N.C., to announce
a program to train 10,000
American engineers each year.
Obama said private com-
panies will join the govern-
ment to promote education in
science, technology, engineer-
ing and math. He said U.S.
companies need the brightest
American workers to remain
leaders in technology and
At a clean-energy plant,
the president also linked
Washington’s preoccupation
with the budget to the nation’s
economic problems.
“We need to solve our medi-
um- and long-term debt and
deficit issues, not for abstract
reasons but because they are a
concrete impediment to growth
and jobs,” Obama said.

Associated Press
Defense Secretary Robert
Gates said Monday that he
sees no roadblocks to ending
the ban on openly gay military
service, and if the top officers
of each service recommend
moving ahead on the repeal
before the end of the month,
he will endorse it.
A little over two weeks
before ending his 4 1/2 year
tenure as Pentagon chief,
Gates sat down in his office
for an Associated Press inter-
view that touched on a range
of issues, including his expec-
tation of a smooth handoff
to his designated successor,
current CIA Director Leon
Panetta. Gates will retire June
30. Panetta’s Senate confirma-
tion is expected shortly.
Gates sounded a cautiously
optimistic note about devel-
opments in troubled Yemen,
where the government and
opposition tribes have engaged
in armed clashes, pushing
the country toward civil war.
Gates said things have calmed
down a bit since President Ali
Abdullah Saleh left for neigh-
boring Saudi Arabia on June
5 for medical treatment of
wounds suffered in an attack
on his compound in Yemen.
“I don’t think you’ll see a
full-blown war there,” Gates
said. “With Saleh being in
Saudi Arabia, maybe some-
thing can be worked out to
bring this to a close,” by find-
ing an accommodation among
Saleh’s family, the opposition
tribes and the military.
The move to end the ban
on gay services could be one
of Gates’ final acts as defense
chief. But Gates stressed that
he is not trying to hurry the pro-
cess, and if it is not ready by the
end of the month, Panetta can
take action when he steps in.
More than a million U.S.
troops have been trained on
the new law that repealed
the 17-year-old ban on gays
serving openly in the armed
services, and Gates said the
instruction has gone well.
“I think people are pretty
satisfied with the way this
process is going forward,” he
said. “I think people have been
mildly and pleasantly surprised
at the lack of pushback in the
Still, he noted that decades
after women entered military
service, there are still per-
sistent problems with sexual
assaults. So, the notion that
there will be no ugly incidents
when the ban is lifted is “unre-
alistic,” he said.
Under the law passed last
December and the detailed
process laid out this year by
the Pentagon, the military
chiefs report to Gates every
two weeks on training prog-
ress and must eventually make
a recommendation on whether
the repeal will damage the
military’s ability to fight.
If Gates approves the cer-
tification before he leaves
office, the repeal could be fully
implemented in September.
Gates said the most com-
mon question that has arisen
during the troops’ training has
been on military housing. He
said commanders are develop-
ing ways to deal with that.
On Afghanistan, Gates said
Americans should be reas-
sured that the White House is
making another “deep dive”
review of the situation as part
of President Barack Obama’s
decision on how many U.S.
troops to withdraw in July.
I would like to thank the residents of Delphos who took part
in the first “City Pride Day.” The purpose of the Pride Day was
to inform and teach the Kiwanis K-kids about the importance
of Community Service. The K-kids started with this idea after
picking up over 6,000 cigarette butts while walking around
The K-kids started with asking two organizations, Keep
Allen County Beautiful and Keep Ohio Beautiful for trash
bags. We only asked for 500 but they helped with 2,200! A
local business donated the flyers that were designed by K-kid
Danielle Harman. The KACB also supplied bottled water and
our local radio station promoted this with a radio spot which
featured four K-kids.
Jeff Price helped to organize students and teachers to pass
out the bulk of the flyers on their last day of school. The area
TV station came to film these students and ran it on the nightly
news. The K-kids finished hanging flyers on Friday afternoon.
Saturday morning, nine Kiwanis gathered at the abandoned
house on Elida Avenue at the request of a neighbor. We spent
more than three hours mowing, raking and cleaning and filled
four trailers of debris. The Kiwanis did not attempt to take the
trailers to the city building because the line was too long and we
needed the trailers back to load more yard waste.
I admire the residents of Delphos that put the effort into
gathering up large items around their personal property and
helping their neighbors and neighborhood. I apologize for the
long wait at the city building. I talked to several residents that
waited more than three hours on a hot day.
I was upset that the two workers that morning had such
a burden and decided to phone Dan Mathias to thank these
men and find out how we could better serve our residents. Mr.
Matthias was never informed about the “City Pride Day.’ He
drove by the Delphos Municipal City Building that morning
and could not believe what was happening. No one from our
city was present.

Lincolnview first sacker Conner McCleery comes up
with the low throw to retire Crestview’s Jared Hallfeldt
during ACME baseball action Monday at Lincolnview.
However, the visiting Knights put the wood on the Lancers
by a 20-6 score.

Times Bulletin Sports Editor
Crestview Knights’ ACME
baseball team had no short-
age of hitting in their contest
at Lincolnview on Monday
night, scoring 20 runs on 17
hits en route to a 20-6 run-
rule victory over the Lancers.
The Knight’s bats were
hot right out of the gate plat-
ing five runs in the top of the
first, thanks mostly to triples
by Jake Harmon and Jacob
The Lancers answered
with three runs of their own
in the bottom of the frame
as Kyle Williams reached
on error with two outs and
was followed with RBIs from
Clayton Longstreth and Mike
The Knights added anoth-
er run in the second as Kole
Rolsten walked, moved to
second on a sacrifice bunt by
Alec Heffner and was singled
home by Harmon.
Lancer pitcher Nick Leeth
held the Knights scoreless in
the top of the third and the
Lancers scored a pair of runs
in the bottom of the inning as
Klausing drove in Williams
and Longstreth with an RBI
At the end of three,
Crestview led 6-5 but a 3-run
fourth inning capped by a
2-run double from Blake
Myers seemed to give the
momentum to the Knights for
good as Williams came in to
relieve Leeth on the mound
for the Lancers.
Lincolnview managed one
run in the bottom of the fourth
as Leeth reached on error and
was plated by Longstreth.
Crestview scored three
more in the fifth as Rolsten
was hit by a pitch to begin the
inning and later scored on a
passed ball. Consecutive hits
by Nick Adam, Nick Leary
and Wortman made the score
12-6 after five innings.
Lincolnview could not
capitalize on a pair of walks
to Eli Farmer and Leeth in
the bottom of the fifth as both
were stranded on base to end
the inning.
The top of the sixth saw
the Knights blow the game
wide open by scoring eight
runs. After a quick strikeout
to begin the inning, Justin
Lare and Rolsten were issued
back-to-back walks, fol-
lowed by an RBI double by
Alex Brown. Harmon also
walked before RBI singles by
Adam and Leary. Wortman
then reached on an error and
Myers contributed a single
before both were plated on a
double by Lare in his second
at-bat of the inning.
The Lancers were shut
down in the bottom of the
sixth by Wortman, who
replaced starter Heffner in the
fifth inning and pitched two
scoreless innings.
Leeth took the loss for
Lincolnview, going 3 2/3
innings in allowing nine runs,
all earned.
Heffner got the win for
Crestview going four innings
allowing six runs, three
Leading hitters for the
Knights were Leary, who
went 3-3 with a triple and
four runs scored, and Adam
who went 3-4 with a double
and two runs scored.
Leading hitters for the
Lancers were Longstreth,
who went 3-3 with a double
and two runs scored, and
Klausing, who went 2-3 with
a double and one run scored.

Jefferson ACME baseball
team was outhit by Van Wert
8-5 Monday night at Wildcat
However, the host Wildcats
earned 11 walks from four
different Cougar hurl-
ers and used a 6-run
sixth inning to secure
a 12-6 triumph on a
gorgeous late-spring
The Cougars (2-3)
had battled back from a 6-2
deficit in the fifth inning to a
6-6 tie in the top of the sixth.
However, Jefferson (6-1)
exploded for those six runs
against two Van Wert hurlers:
losing pitcher Lucas Sullivan
and Joey Hurless; sending 10
batters to the plate. No. 9 hit-
ter Tyler Wrasman worked a
walk to lead it off and Mike
Joseph sacrificed; an error
on the play allowed both run-
ners to be safe. Justin Rode
walked to load the bases.
An out later, Curtis Miller
lined a single into left to plate
Wrasman and keep the sacks
juiced. Zach Kimmet got a
free pass to score Joseph and
end Sullivan’s stint on the
mound, bringing in the south-
paw Hurless. Evan Neubert
greeted him with a base-on-
balls to plate Rode and a 9-6
edge. An error on a Quenten
Wessell pop-up allowed
Miller to score and moved
Kimmet and Anspach up a
base, from where they scored
on a 2-run double to right by
Jeff Schleeter.
Drew Kortorkax (3-0),
Jefferson’s third pitcher, then
set down the Cougar side in
order in the seventh to get the
win after getting the final out
of the sixth.
Van Wert got a 1-0 lead
in the top of the first against
starter Miller on a 1-out
walk to Nathan Stoller, a
balk, a groundout by Aaron
McClellan and an infield hit
by Kody Heitz.
Both teams left a
runner on in the next
at-bat before the
Wildcats answered
with a 3 spot in the sec-
ond frame off of starter
Mason Krugh. Three straight
free passes to Kimmet, Kyle
Anspach and Wessell loaded
the bases. Schleeter bounced
to shortstop Stoller, who
threw home to get Kimmet.
However, Wrasman cleared
the bases with a double down
the left-field line for a 3-1
The Cougars made it a 3-2
deficit in the third on a 1-out
bloop double down the left-
field line by McClellan and a
2-out knock to center by Matt
Cucciarre (3-for-3, 4 runs
batted in). The Cou8gars left
runners on second and third
to prevent a further uprising.
The hosts made it 4-2 in
the home half on a leadoff tri-
ple to deep right by Kortokrax
and a 1-out grounder by
The hosts tacked on two
more in the fourth against
reliever Tyler Williams. With
one down, Wrasman walked,
stole second, moved to
third on a throwing error on
Joseph’s grounder (promptly
swiping second) and scored
on a wild pitch. A balk plated
Joseph for a 6-2 edge.
Van Wert got a single run
in the fifth against reliever
Schleeter. Stoller’s bouncer
was misplayed and he bur-
gled second. An out later, he
moved up on a bounceout by
Heitz and scored on a liner
to right by Cucciarre. Again,
the Cougars left two runners
on to prevent getting closer
than 6-3.
The guests tied it in the
top of the sixth,
chasing Schleeter.
With one down,
Jacob Lovett lined
a hit to right,
advanced on a
sacrifice bunt by
Hurless and swiped third.
Stoller walked. McClellan’s
double to left plated Lovett.
Heitz was plunked to load
the bases. Cucciarre lined a
single to right, plating Stoller
and McClellan, and taking
second on the throw home.
However, Kortokrax came on
in relief and fanned the next
batter to keep the game tied
at 6.
“We’re getting production
throughout the lineup. Even
though we got outhit, we had
timely hits: one was Curtis’
in the sixth inning and the
second was Tyler’s double in
the second,” Jefferson ACME
coach Rusty Thompson
noted. “We had five guys not
here due to basketball camp
— that’s part of ACME ball
— so we had to put some new
guys in there and they pro-
duced. Curtis threw well; he
is making a great transition
to a starting pitcher. Drew
is just throwing so well. He
throws hard but the key to his
development is throwing that
off-speed pitch for strikes.”
Jefferson is at Crestview
tonight (6 p.m.).
“We couldn’t throw
strikes; we had more hits but
when you’re giving away
that many free passes, you
aren’t going to do well,” Van
Wert ACME coach Aaron
Gillespie stated. “We had our
opportunities at the plate but
outside of Matt, who had four
of our six RBIs, we struggle
with runners in scoring posi-
tion. We also had quite
a few guys not here
due to basketball but
that’s part of summer
Van Wert vis-
its Delphos again

John’s for a 6 p.m. contest.
Wildcats erupt for 6 in the 6th
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Derek
Jeter took one step out of the
batter’s box and clearly was
in trouble.
Noticeably limping, the
New York Yankees star man-
aged to jog down the first-
base line. He touched the bag,
turned right toward the dug-
out and was done in the fifth
inning of Monday night’s 1-0
loss to Cleveland.
A strained right calf stalled
Jeter’s pursuit of 3,000 hits.
He headed to a hospital for
an MRI exam, which showed
a Grade I strain, the mildest
type. The Yankees said they
would determine the next step
today — and they hope it’s
not a trip to the disabled list.
“I’m worried about him,”
manager Joe Girardi said.
“Just keep our fingers crossed
and hopefully it’s not too seri-
ous. He just walked off the
field and you could tell he
was done. You don’t see him
come out of games.”
Jeter, who had a leadoff
single for career hit No. 2,994,
appeared to hurt himself on a
fly out to right field in the
fifth. He has not been on the
disabled list since 2003.
Regardless of the MRI
results, Girardi added he
didn’t think Jeter would be
able to play tonight against
Teammates, fans and
even Jeter himself had said it
would be nice to achieve the
milestone at Yankee Stadium.
New York has three games left
against Texas on this home-
stand, then goes on a 6-game
road trip to Wrigley Field in
Chicago and Cincinnati.
Jeter’s single helped the
Yankees load the bases with no
outs in the first against Carlos
Carrasco (6-3). But Jeter hes-
itated on Alex Rodriguez’s
medium-depth fly and stayed
at third base — centerfielder
Michael Brantley appeared
ready to concede the run —
and Carrasco got out of the
jam without allowing a run.
Carrasco pitched 5-hit ball
for seven innings, striking out
seven and walking three. The
Yankees certainly had their
chances at the start against
him — of their first 14 bat-
ters, seven reached base. The
24-year-old righty set down
13 of his last 14.
“I thought that Carrasco
gave us a terrific pick-me-
up,” Indians manager Manny
Acta said. “He started shaky
with a lot of traffic out there
but I can’t say enough about
the job that he did.”
The Indians had lost four
in a row overall and avoided
a 4-game sweep in the Bronx.
They handed New York its
first 1-0 loss in the 3-sea-
son history of new Yankee
Acta shuffled his batting
order, putting Carlos Santana,
Brantley and Asdrubal
Cabrera into lineup spots
where they’d never hit before.
The Indians had totaled only
21 runs while losing nine of
10 and managed to scratch
out just enough to win.
Brantley tripled off the
glove of diving rightfielder
Nick Swisher in the fourth
and Cabrera bounced an RBI
single to left field. That go-
ahead grounder stopped the
Indians’ 0-for-20 drought
with runners in scoring posi-
Tony Sipp got two outs
in the eighth, retiring Mark
Teixeira on a fly ball up
against the right-center wall,
and reliever Vinnie Pestano
ended the inning. Chris Perez
struck out the side in the
ninth for his 16th save in 17
A.J. Burnett (6-5) rebound-
ed from a battering by Boston
and took the hard-luck loss.
He gave up five hits in 7
2/3 innings, walked one and
struck out eight.
Eduardo Nunez replaced
Jeter to start the top of the
sixth. There was a slight mur-
mur in the crowd of 43,551
when the public-address
announcer told fans that
Nunez was the new short-
Jeter is trying to become
the first player to reach 3,000
hits while with the Yankees.
Approaching his 37th birth-
day, he had been in a pro-
nounced slump to start the
season but had been showing
more flashes of his All-Star
form in recent weeks.
Angels 6, Mariners 3
SEATTLE — Vernon Wells hit
the Angels’ first homer in a week with
a solo shot in the third inning, then
hit a tie-breaking 2-run homer in the
The slumping Angels, having
dropped 7-of-8, started their lon-
gest road trip of the season with a
comeback victory capped by a power
The Angels were homerless
in their previous 62 innings before
Wells’ blast with two outs in the third.
In the seventh, after Jeff Mathis’ slide
knocked the ball free from Seattle
catcher Miguel Olivo to tie the game
at 3, Wells drove a 2-1 pitch from
Jason Vargas (4-4) out to deep left-
Dan Haren (6-4) allowed seven
hits in six innings but didn’t walk a
batter and struck out seven.
Tigers 2, Rays 1, 10 innings
DETROIT — Ramon Santiago’s
RBI triple in the bottom of the 10th
inning kept Detroit in a virtual tie
for first place on the eve of their big
series against Cleveland.
With one out in the 10th, Victor

NEW YORK — NFL employees
have had their salaries trimmed by
12 percent since April and seven
teams have instituted pay cuts or
furloughs of workers outside the
huddle since the owners’ lockout
of players began March 12, The
Associated Press has found in inter-
views around the league.
Miami, Buffalo, the New York
Jets, Kansas City, Detroit, Tampa
Bay and Arizona are the teams
known to have slashed payroll.
In all, the number of affected
employees who work for either the
clubs or the league is likely more than
100. Count Commissioner Roger
Goodell and Jeff Pash, the NFL’s
lead labor negotiator, among them.
Their salaries have been reduced
to $1 each while the league’s labor
impasse is unresolved.
Information about several other
clubs came from people with knowl-
edge of the cuts or furloughs who
spoke on condition of anonymity
because the moves had not been
announced by the team.
Busch has been docked six points
and his crew chief fined $25,000
because his car failed post-race
inspection at Pocono Raceway.
The No. 18 Toyota was found to
be too low during NASCAR’s inspec-
tion Sunday. NASCAR responded
Monday by docking Busch six driver
points and car owner Joe Gibbs
six owner points. Crew chief Dave
Rogers received the fine.
Busch finished third in the race.
Despite the penalty, he remains fifth
in the standings but now trails leader
Carl Edwards by 31 points.
This is the first penalty for a
Sprint Cup Series team since the
implementation of the new points
system. Under the old points sys-
tem, failing to meet the required

COLUMBUS — Former Ohio
State quarterback Terrelle Pryor has
hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent
and has taken steps toward making
himself available for an NFL supple-
mental draft.
Pryor’s lawyer, Larry James, said
Monday that Pryor was in Miami
and had signed an agreement with
Rosenhaus, a high-powered agent
who represents some of the biggest
names in sports.
Pryor, James and at least two
other people spent the past few
days discussing the quarterback’s
options in terms of agents. Pryor
flew to Miami on Sunday and signed
a contract with Rosenhaus late on
Monday morning.

Gavin Oldham has been
named the first men’s soccer
coach at the University of
Northwestern Ohio.

LIMA — The University
of Northwestern Ohio has
secured its first leader of
the new men’s soccer team
as Gavin Oldham has been
named the first soccer coach
at UNOH.
Oldham, a former nation-
al champion of Lindsey
Wilson College as a player
and assistant coach, brings a
vast knowledge of coaching
experience to UNOH and will
look to build the program to
an elite status, according to
President Dr. Jeff Jarvis.
“I am very excited about
the hiring of Gavin Oldham as
our head men’s soccer coach.
The experience he brings to
UNOH as an All-American
player and then as a success-
ful collegiate assistant soc-
cer coach with four national
championships, two as a play-
er and two as a coach, gives
UNOH an excellent first piece
to our soccer program,” Dr.
Jarvis noted.
Oldham spent seven sea-
sons as the head assistant
men’s soccer coach and head
junior varsity coach at Lindsey
Wilson College. Oldham
joined the Blue Raider men’s
soccer staff in 2004 as a grad-
uate assistant after his stellar
4-year career as a Blue Raider
defender. In 2005, Oldham
began his duties as lead assis-
tant. That season, Oldham
helped lead the Blue Raiders
to the National Association
of Intercollegiate Athletics
National Championship. In
his seven seasons as assis-
tant, the Blue Raiders have
won or shared six straight
Mid-South Conference regu-
lar season and tournament
titles and appeared in seven
NAIA National Tournaments.
In 2009, Oldham helped
the Blue Raiders to the pro-
gram’s eighth NAIA National
Championship — his fourth
title with Lindsey Wilson.
Oldham’s assistant coach-
ing record was 128-24-5 while
at Lindsey Wilson.
After accepting the posi-
tion, Oldham stated, “The
chance to come to UNOH and
have the opportunity to build
a program from the start was
really enticing. Don’t get me
wrong; I know there is a lot of
work that comes with that but
I am really looking forward
to being part of the university
and the athletics department
here. It’s an exciting time for
the institution and my hope is
to put UNOH soccer firmly
on the map as a dominant
As a student-athlete,
Oldham helped Lindsey
Wilson to a pair of national
championships (2000 and
2001) and a 79-10-1 overall
record. Oldham was chosen
as the 2001 Most Valuable
Player during the NAIA
National Tournament where
Lindsey Wilson outscored its
opponents 22-4 in four match-
es. Oldham was a 2-time All-
American and a 3-time all-
conference selection.
“Gavin Oldham brings
a wealth of knowledge into
his first head coaching stint.
We felt, during the interview
process, that his demeanor,
determination, soccer prow-
ess and savvy set him apart
from the other candidates. We
were elated when he accepted
the UNOH men’s soccer job,”
UNOH Director of Athletics
Chris Adams explained.
The Racers will play their
first competitive season in the
fall of 2012.
“I would like to thank both
Dr. Jarvis and Chris Adams
for showing their faith in
my abilities to lead the pro-
gram. Tradition starts today,”
Oldham added.
Oldham and his wife,
Danielle, have one son, Jayce
and twin daughters, Ella and

BOSTON — When Brad
Marchand whistled a shot over
Roberto Luongo’s shoulder
early in Game 6, Vancouver’s
enigmatic goalie looked a bit
surprised, a little shaky.
When Milan Lucic trick-
led another goal through
Luongo’s legs 35 seconds
later, the Boston Bruins could
tell Luongo was off — and
they were on.
The tension of an elimi-
nation game eroded right
along with Luongo’s poise.
With another goal by Andrew
Ference moments later,
Luongo was history and the
Bruins were headed back to
Vancouver for the Stanley
Cup finals’ grand finale.
The Canucks could have
raised the Stanley Cup on
Monday night but the Bruins
refused to allow a Garden
party for the visitors. They
even chased Luongo off their
home ice in the first period,
evening the series with a 5-2
“We wanted to make sure
if we went down, we went
down fighting,” Marchand
Only Luongo went down.
The Bruins put the Canucks’
goalie and the Stanley Cup
back on the shelf — and back
on a plane to the West Coast
for Game 7 on Wednesday
For the sixth time in the
last 10 seasons, the finals have
been stretched to their limit.
The home team hasn’t lost in
this series, with Vancouver
winning three 1-goal games
and Boston posting three
blowout victories, but the
Bruins are riding a wave of
momentum toward their first
title since 1972 with three
wins in the last four games.
Tim Thomas made 36
saves for the Bruins, giving up
two third-period goals while
burnishing his credentials for
the Conn Smythe Trophy.
“Not too many people
counted on us being at this
point right now,” said Thomas,
who has allowed just eight
goals in six finals games. “It’s
a great feeling. We battled
hard tonight. We came to play
and it’s coming down to one
game. This is what we dream
of, when you’re little kids
playing street hockey, you
know, you’re in Game 7.”
League MVP Henrik
Sedin scored his first point of
the finals with a late power-
play goal for the Canucks,
who flopped in their first
attempt to win the franchise’s
first championship. Maxim
Lapierre also scored in the
third period for the Canucks,
who will get one last try at a
Rogers Arena filled with wor-
ried Vancouverites hoping
Luongo and their maddening
team can come through.
Thomas has turned in a
virtuoso performance in the
finals — but the spotlight in
Game 6 was trained squarely
on the other net.
After Luongo led
Vancouver to the brink of
a title with a stellar perfor-
mance in a 1-0 victory Friday,
the Canucks hoped to cel-
ebrate in Boston. The Bruins
canceled the festivities with
yet another stunning barrage
of goals against Luongo, who
was ventilated for 15 goals
in just over 4 1/2 periods in
“You can’t hang your head
and feel sorry for yourself,”
Luongo said. “That’s the
worst thing I could do. ... I
had a good feeling all day.
Before the series started, I
said I enjoyed playing in this
building. Just got to move on
right now. Got to believe in
myself, right?”
Boston even set a finals
record with four goals in 4:14
while chasing Luongo and
welcoming his backup, Cory
Schneider, with a quick goal
from Michael Ryder.
Canucks coach Alain
Vigneault wasted no time
confirming Luongo will start
Game 7 in Vancouver, where
he already has two shutouts in
the series.
“I don’t have to say any-
thing to him,” Vigneault
said. “He’s a professional.
His preparation is beyond
reproach and he’s going to
be ready for Game 7. ... It
happened. There’s nothing we
can do about it. We’ve already
turned the page on that and
we’re going back home.”
The Bruins are one win
away from their Original Six
franchise’s first championship
since 1972. Boston has lost its
last five trips to the finals
since, never even reaching
a seventh game — but the
Bruins can hang another ban-
ner in the Garden rafters with
one road win.
And the Bruins have
ample experience in Game
7. They’ve already played
two in these playoffs, beating
Montreal in the first round
and Tampa Bay in the Eastern
Conference finals — but both
of those games were at home,
where Boston finished the
postseason with 10 wins in its
last 11 games.
If Vancouver can’t regroup
in the next 48 hours after
another East Coast collapse,
the Canucks will waste the
best regular season in fran-
chise history. Vancouver lost
Game 7 of the 1994 finals to
Mark Messier’s New York
Rangers and hadn’t been back
to the finals since.
Vancouver probably could
tell Game 6 was trouble from
the opening shift: Second-line
forward Mason Raymond was
taken to a hospital with an
undisclosed injury after he ran
into the boards backward and
bent at the waist in a colli-
sion with Boston defenseman
Johnny Boychuk. The Canucks
gave no immediate details on
his injury or condition.
After Henrik Sedin finally
scored in the opening minute
of the third period, playoffs
scoring leader David Krejci
got his 12th goal during a
2-man advantage for Boston,
with 43-year-old Mark Recchi
picking up his third assist.
The Boston crowd booed
Luongo lustily and chanted
his name derisively before
Game 6 even began.
Luongo also was pulled
from Game 4 in Boston early
in the third period after falling
behind 4-0 on the heels of the
Bruins’ 8-1 victory in Game
3. Luongo has been a sieve in
Boston, yet he has given up
just two goals in three games
in Vancouver.
Boston also will be without
Nathan Horton for this Game
7. The power forward had the
winning goal in the decisive
games against Montreal and
Tampa Bay but is out for the
series after getting a concus-
sion in Game 3.
Horton attended Game 6,
getting a standing ovation
from the Boston crowd when
he appeared on the overhead
scoreboard in the first period.
Boston hardly needed the
motivation in a series filled
with cheap shots and insults.
The Sedin twins finally
showed life for perhaps the
first time in the series. The
NHL’s last two scoring cham-
pions have done a monumen-
tal disappearing act in the
finals, although they doubled
their point total for the entire
series when Daniel Sedin
assisted on Henrik Sedin’s
backhand in the slot for just
the second goal of the series
by Vancouver’s league-best
power play, which dropped to
Daniel Sedin, the NHL
scoring champion, added an
assist on Lapierre’s goal, giv-
ing him four points in the
The series has been bad-
tempered from Game 1,
when Vancouver’s Alex
Burrows escaped suspen-
sion for apparently biting the
finger of Boston’s Patrice
Bergeron. The teams taunted
each other about the incident
— but the series got serious
when Vancouver defenseman
Aaron Rome leveled Horton
with a late hit.

Baker sat at his desk after the
game, scribbling Doug Jones’
name on the lineup card he
removed from the dugout
wall and signing it for closer
Francisco Cordero — along
with a couple of copies of the
batting order slips that go to
the umpires.
The Cincinnati
Reds manager made
the gesture as a show
of appreciation for
the 36-year-old right-
hander, who tied Jones for
20th place on the career saves
list Monday by striking out the
final three batters to preserve
Bronson Arroyo’s 6-4 win over
the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Dodgers narrowed the
gap to 6-4 in the eighth with
a run-scoring triple by Dee
Gordon, his first RBI in the
majors, and a sacrifice fly by
Aaron Miles. But Bill Bray
struck out Andre Ethier to end
the inning and Cordero fanned
James Loney, pinch-hitter Rod
Barajas and Dioner Navarro
following a walk to NL home
run leader Matt Kemp.
It was Cordero’s 13th save
in 15 chances this season and
the 303rd of his career, one shy
of Jeff Montgomery for 19th
place and six away from Hall-
of-Famer Goose Gossage.
“It’s not over yet. I mean,
almost every day he’s pass-
ing somebody,” Baker said.
“I think he can pass a whole
bunch of guys by the time this
year’s over with. We just have
to give him ample opportuni-
ties. We haven’t had a bunch
of opportunities this year and
they usually come in bunches.
But he’s throwing the ball as
well as I’ve seen him since we
got him, with consistent com-
mand and control, velocity and
Arroyo (5-6) outpitched
Hiroki Kuroda for the second
time in 11 days and singled
home the go-ahead run for the
Reds, who got homers from
Joey Votto and Chris Heisey in
the opener of a 3-game series.
Arroyo allowed
four runs and seven
hits over 7 2/3 innings
with no walks in a
rematch of his June
3 duel with Kuroda,
which Cincinnati won 2-1.
The Reds’ right-hander is 4-0
with a 2.60 ERA in his last
four starts against the Dodgers,
after going 1-4 with a 4.67
ERA in his other nine starts
against them.
Kuroda (5-8) was charged
with four runs — two earned
— and seven hits over 6 1/3
innings with six strikeouts and
no walks. The 36-year-old
right-hander is 0-5 with a 4.39
ERA in his last five starts but
his teammates have totaled just
nine runs during that stretch.
The Reds capitalized on a
pair of errors by the Dodgers’
infield in the seventh to break
open a 2-2 game. Gordon, a
23-year-old shortstop mak-
ing his Dodger Stadium debut
after getting called up from
Triple-A during the team’s 5-5
road trip, botched a routine
grounder by Ryan Hanigan
leading off the inning.
Paul Janish followed with
an apparent double-play
grounder to Gordon but the
relay to first by Miles sailed
into the photo well — allow-
ing Janish to take an extra base
on the error. Arroyo drove him
in with his second single of
the game, chasing Kuroda, and
Votto hit a three-run homer off
Matt Guerrier after a two-out
walk to Brandon Phillips.
Votto, the reigning NL
MVP, is vying for his first bat-
ting title with a .333 average.
The home run was his ninth
of the season and first since
his 3-run shot against Clayton
Kershaw June 4 at Cincinnati.
Gordon’s first error in the
big leagues compounded an
egregious mistake he made in
the second inning — when he
failed to touch second base on a
potential double-play grounder
by Miguel Cairo after taking
the flip from Miles. That cost
the Dodgers an out — and a
run, as Janish drove in Heisey
with a two-out single.
James Loney drove in the
first run with a first-inning
single after Arroyo gave up a
2-out single by Ethier and hit
Kemp with a pitch.
Kemp scored the Dodgers’
second run on a double-play
grounder by Juan Uribe in the
third. But Heisey tied it 2-all
in the sixth with a 2-out solo
homer on the first pitch.
Gordon, the Dodgers’
minor league player of the year
in 2009 and the son of for-
mer major-league closer Tom
Gordon, made back-to-back
defensive gems in the third
and another in the sixth.
Pirates 3, Mets 1
PITTSBURGH — Paul Maholm
pitched seven shutout innings, Brandon
Wood homered and the Pittsburgh
Pirates beat the New York Mets 3-1
on Monday night to split their 4-game
Maholm (3-7) lowered his ERA to
3.12, allowing only three hits and two
walks. Hampered by poor run support,
he won for just the second time since
April 25. Neil Walker had two RBIs
as Pittsburgh (32-33) moved within a
game of .500.
Mets starter Mike Pelfrey nearly
matched Maholm, giving up two runs
and four hits in seven innings. He did
not walk a batter. For the second time
in three days, the Mets (32-34) missed
an opportunity to reach .500 for the
second time since April 9.
Diamondbacks 12, Marlins 9
MIAMI — Miguel Montero hit three
doubles and drove in four runs and
pitcher Zach Duke hit a 2-run homer
for Arizona.
Juan Miranda had three RBIs and
Justin Upton knocked in a pair for the
Diamondbacks, who have won 4-of-5.
Duke allowed seven runs and 13
hits in 4 2/3 innings, finishing an out
short of qualifying for the win despite
an early 9-run lead. Micah Owings
(3-0) picked up the win by pitching
2 1/3 innings in relief and J.J. Putz
earned his 18th save by pitching a
scoreless ninth.
Ricky Nolasco (4-2) allowed nine
runs — five earned — in three innings
for the Marlins, who have lost 11-of-12
and finished 1-10 on their homestand.
The Diamondbacks led 9-0 in the
third inning but Florida pulled within
12-9 in the eighth on a 2-run single by
John Buck.
Astros 8, Braves 3
HOUSTON — Hunter Pence hom-
ered and drove in four runs, pushing
his hitting streak to 23 games (the lon-
gest active in the majors) after a day
off due to back trouble, and Houston
beat Atlanta to snap a 4-game skid.
Pence missed his first game this
season on Sunday while dealing
with tightness in his lower back, then
extended his career-best hitting streak
with a 2-run homer off Derek Lowe
(3-5) in the third inning. He also drove
in two runs with a single in Houston’s
5-run sixth, finishing with three hitss.
Wandy Rodriguez (4-3) allowed
two hits in six scoreless innings in his
return from the disabled list as the
Astros won for just the second time
in 10 games.
Cubs 1, Brewers 0
CHICAGO — Darwin Barney
scored on a fielder’s choice in the
eighth inning for the only run as
Chicago beat Milwaukee.
Aramis Ramirez grounded
to Brewers shortstop Yuniesky
Betancourt with one out but the throw
to catcher Jonathan Lucroy wasn’t in
time to tag Barney, who dived over
home plate.
Jeff Samardzija (4-2) worked one
inning for the win and Carlos Marmol
saved the opener of a 4-game series.
Brewers reliever Kameron Loe (2-6)
took the loss.
Padres 3, Rockies 1
DENVER — Anthony Bass pitched
five efficient innings to win his major-
league debut, Ryan Ludwick drove
in two runs and San Diego snapped
a 3-game skid with a victory over
Colorado in a game delayed 83 min-
utes by a thunderstorm.

Texas A&M saved its ace
for the biggest game of its
Michael Wacha delivered
again, just as he has
throughout the postseason.
Wacha allowed two runs on
three hits in 7 1/3 innings as
the Aggies defeated Florida
State 11-2 on Monday night
to advance to the College
World Series.
“I knew I had to go out
there and throw strikes and
help this team go to Omaha,”
Wacha said.
In four postseason outings,
Wacha (9-3) has allowed just
three earned runs in 28 1/3
“He’s the real deal,” Florida
State coach Mike Martin said.
“That was great stuff.”
Texas A&M (47-20), which
won 2-of-3 games in the
Tallahassee Super Regional,
reached the CWS for the first
time since 1999. The Aggies
will play defending national
champion South Carolina on
“There are two things that
I truly enjoy: No. 1, sitting
on the bus, listening to our
players laugh after we won a
game on the road,” said Texas
A&M coach Rob Childress,
who got a Gatorade bath after
the win. “No. 2, watching our
guys dogpile on the way to
Omaha. I sure enjoyed that
one tonight.”
Kevin Gonzalez had a
2-run double that was part of
a 6-run first inning for Texas
A&M. Adam Smith added a
2-run homer in the second
that put the Aggies up 8-0.
“The feeling right now is
so surreal,” Smith said. “It’s
an unbelievable feeling.”
Stuart Tapley hit a solo
home run and Rafael Lopez
had an RBI double for Florida
State (46-19), which was
the only super regional host
team that did not advance to
Seminoles right-hander
Hunter Scantling (3-3) lasted
just four batters, allowing
two hits, two walks and four
earned runs. Of his 13 pitches,
just three were strikes.
“It was tough to be in that

a trip to its 21st College
World Series. Martin and the
Seminoles are still searching
for the program’s first
national title.
“It’s a big disappointment
for me,” added Martin, who’s
67. “Obviously, the end is in
sight. I’m not saying when
it’s going to be. But 32 years,
I’ve been blessed to work at
Florida State and I love this

Chris Taylor hit a 2-run single
with two outs in the bottom of
the ninth inning Monday, lifting
Virginia to a dramatic 3-2 victory
against UC Irvine and back into
the College World Series.
The Cavaliers (54-10) were
down to their last out against
Anteaters ace Matt Summers
(11-4), making his first relief
appearance of the season,
when David Coleman singled
to center, Jared King singled off
Summers’ leg and pinch-hitter
Reed Gragnani drew a walk to
load the bases.
Taylor then took a called strike
and singled up the middle, just out
of the reach of second baseman
Tommy Reyes as two runs
scored, causing Davenport Field
to erupt in a huge celebration.
Only moments earlier, UC
Irvine (43-18) seemed likely to
send the Cavaliers, the national
No. 1 seed, home for the second
straight season as losers in a
Charlottesville Super Regional.
Brendan Kline (4-1) earned
the victory after being in line to
suffer the loss.

By Bernice Bede Osol
Help me, Annie.
My wife is nuts
Dear Annie: I’ve been
married for 20 years, but
I have a situation at home
and don’t know what to do
My wife gets angry over
little things on a daily basis.
She is constantly upset about
things people do or don’t
do. If a child eats a cookie,
she will throw a fit and then
get mad at everyone else
in the household. She will
sulk and give everyone the
silent treatment, and if you
attempt to talk
things over, she
will walk away or
leave the house.
Her anger used
to appear every
few days, but now
it’s multiple times
morning and
night. She is see-
ing a therapist, but
she tells him it’s
everyone else’s
fault -- her parents
didn’t bring her
up right, her friends aren’t
supportive enough, her kids
don’t behave, etc., etc.
We saw a marriage coun-
selor, but she got angry with
him for asking too many
questions. Then she got mad
at me for seeing the coun-
selor on my own. I’ve often
thought of leaving, but my
parents divorced, and I can’t
do that to my kids.
My wife and I are both in
our early 50s, but her temper
tantrums affect everything
in our marriage, including
intimacy. I’ve lost interest.
What can I do? -- Tired of
Living with Silent Bob
Dear Tired: Until your
wife recognizes that she has
a problem, she cannot work
on making it better. Many
women struggle with hor-
monal imbalances during
menopause, making it harder
to control existing emotional
issues. This could be why
your wife’s anger has got-
ten worse. Go back to your
counselor and ask for help
communicating with her.
She has to understand that
her marriage is at stake.
Dear Annie: I am 13
years old and have two best
friends. I’ve been friends
with “Emma” forever, and
I just started getting close to
The problem is, Emma
has been giving me the cold
shoulder because I’ve been
spending a lot of time with
Maria. When I brought it
up with her, she admitted it.
Even though I’ve been going
over to Emma’s house a lot
more, the situation hasn’t
gotten any better. When I’m
around both of them, I try to
give them equal attention,
but Emma still brushes me
off. There are times when
she is nice like before, but
not always. What do I do?
-- Friend Problems
Dear Friend: Emma
is too jealous of Maria to
include her in the friendship
she has with you. This is
not an uncommon response
when someone new disrupts
an existing relationship.
Emma wants you to stop
being chummy with Maria,
but we urge you not to cave
in to that pressure, or it will
limit all your future friend-
ships. Spending more indi-
vidual time with Emma is
a good idea, but she is the
one who must deal with her
jealousy. We hope she can
learn to share.
Dear Annie: I’m a 7th-
grade teacher and
often find items in
your column to dis-
cuss with my stu-
“Heartbroken in
Texas” said her hus-
band’s co-workers
were sending pho-
tos of semi-clothed
women to his busi-
ness cellphone. In
addition to your
reply, I would like
to say that this may
also constitute sexual harass-
ment and is covered under
federal law. -- Allison
Dear Allison: Sexual
harassment can include creat-
ing a hostile or offensive work
environment. However, most
such cases need to be gender-
based, meaning female co-
workers would have to be
aware of these photos. But
these laws are constantly
evolving, and some compa-
nies have their own policies
in place, as well.

Wednesday, June 15, 2011
In order to be happier and
accomplish more, one of the more
significant things you’ll do in the year
ahead is try to bring various segments
of your life into better balance. Once
you do, the results will be extremely
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) --
Generally, teaming up with someone
usually turns out to be rather fortunate
for you, but today could prove to
be an exception. Go it alone if at all
possible, or put off your plans until
another time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-- If you find that you have more
responsibilities piling up than you
can handle, do what you can without
becoming frustrated. You’ll take care
of business in due time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) --
Be careful how you handle some
shocking hearsay conveyed by a
talkative friend. If you repeat it to
others without first having its validity
checked, trouble could ensue.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) --
Friends or associates won’t think less
of you for avoiding problem areas
that could cause you trouble. In fact,
they’ll admire you for your good
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
You’re a person who usually doesn’t
turn a deaf ear to the advice or
suggestions of cohorts. Today, to your
loss, you’ll have little interest in what
others are saying.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) --
If there are persons involved in your
commercial affairs with whom you’ve
never before dealt, tread slowly and
cautiously. Check them out first
before doing business.
21) -- Avoid being compelled to make
an important decision under strong
pressure, especially if your judgment
isn’t running up to par. Postpone
doing so until another time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- All those nasty jobs you’ve been
putting off might catch up with you
and demand attention. It isn’t likely
that you’ll have as much latitude as
last time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) --
It is never a good day to champion an
unpopular cause, but now may be an
exceptionally bad time to do so. Don’t
force your views on others, unless you
relish a hostile reception.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
-- The disorder you find in your
household may be your doing more
than anybody else’s, especially if you
are having one of your moody days.
The finger of blame will be pointed
squarely at you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Avoid making any commitments,
regardless if they are verbal or written.
What people say or even put in writing
will not stand the test of time, and will
come back to haunt you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) --
If you need an emissary or someone
to represent you in a matter that is of
great importance to you, be extremely
selective. If you make a bad choice,
the issue will get worse.
