of Tabfest have announced the
line-up of bands that will play
this year’s charity event on
July 27 and 28 in Mendon.
This year’s musical line-up
will include the usual eclectic
mix of classic rock, blues, jazz,
country, folk, funk, jam and
bluegrass music. Performers
include: New Riders of the
Purple Sage, Freekbass,

and others to be announced.
Saturday will feature the
New Riders of the Purple Sage.
Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry
Garcia was an original member
of this group, which still fea-
tures San Francisco Bay-area
rock legend David Nelson, who
has played Tabfest previously
with the New Riders and the
David Nelson Band. Saturday’s
line-up also includes southern
bluegrass rockers, Hackensaw
Boys. Tabfest’s favorite funky
alien, Freekbass, will close out
Saturday evening with another

encouraged to save their alu-
minum can tabs, which will
be recycled to support Ronald
McDonald House Charities.
During the 15-year partner-
ship between Tabfest, Ronald
McDonald House Charities and
other local charities, Tabfest
is pleased to have donated
$37,000 and 9,190 pounds
of aluminum can tabs. This
includes a $5,000 cash dona-
tion following the 2011 edition
of Tabfest! The tab amount
alone weighs more than an
elephant.
“We’re back with another
eclectic line-up of national,
regional and local bands that
offer something for everyone,”
Tabfest founder Curt Albers
said. “There’s nowhere else
where you can see this many
great bands in a relaxed atmo-
sphere at such a great price,
while supporting charity at the
same time. It’s more than just
a great entertainment value,
it’s a great chance to support
families in need.”
Tabfest will once again take
place at the Mendon Speedway
at Grand Lake Motorcycle
Club, 8619 Deepcut Road in

VAN WERT — The former Chief
Executive Officer of a company in Delphos
returned to a Van Wert County courtroom
Wednesday for the first time since being sen-
tenced to three years in prison back in March.
Robert Fishbein was arraigned on a charge of
violating a civil protective order. He entered a
not guilty plea.
Fishbein was given a three-year prison
sentence for intimidation of a witness and
telephone harassment on March 14. The case
stems from what Fishbein himself called dur-
ing his sentencing hearing an “extramarital
affair” with a female former employee of I &
K Distributing, where he was the CEO.
The woman left I & K after alleged-
ly receiving severance pay in lieu of fil-
ing a sexual harassment complaint against
Fishbein. However, the harassment contin-
ued and charges were filed against Fishbein
in Van Wert Municipal Court. Afterward,
Fishbein reportedly continued the calls to the
woman and also made a threat against her if
she did not drop the case. He was said to have
made between 300-400 telephone calls to the
woman between Oct. 20-25, 2011. At least
one of those calls was threatening in nature.
Fishbein found himself in further trouble
after a November hearing when Van Wert
County Common Pleas Court Judge Charles
D. Steele ordered that Fishbein not be allowed
to use the telephone without another person
dialing and monitoring the call. Minutes after
the hearing, he was spotted by court officials
in the lobby of the courtroom talking on a cell
phone. He was again arrested on a warrant
and has remained incarcerated since that time.
Shortly thereafter, Fishbein was fired from his
position at I & K.
Fishbein remains in the Van Wert County
Jail at this time. He is scheduled for a pre-trial
hearing on Wednesday.

DELPHOS — The more
things change ....
Sr. Tina Petrick, SND,
a native of Sandusky, has
been an active resident of
the sisters’ convent at St.
John the Evangelist Catholic
Church in Delphos for six
years. She has taught third
grade and worked as direc-
tor of the Rite of Christian
Initiation of Adults program
at the parish.
That was after spending
three years teaching at a mis-
sion in Papua New Guinea
— teaching second to fifth
grade with some high school
classes thrown in at the
Notre Dame Mission School
— and being involved in
some form of education in
her 26 years as a sister.
She could never quite get
that mission work out of her
blood and when the oppor-
tunity came up to return to
the mission field in the same
part of the world, the answer
was yes.
“The mission is run by
the National Sisters in New
Guinea. They are starting an
elementary school — kin-
dergarten through grade 2
— and they are not trained
to teach such youngsters,”
Sr. Petrick explained. “I will
help train them. This is actu-
ally an open-ended assign-
ment. Generally, it is for
three years but it could be
for one; it just depends on
how well the training goes.
“When I returned to the
States six years ago, I came
to Delphos and didn’t real-
ly think about going back.
It turns out I missed it in

the end. Sr. Delores, our pro-
vincial, asked me if I was
interested in returning for this
assignment and I couldn’t
turn her down.”
The school has grown in
her time away, she noted.
“The all-girls school has
about 800 students in it now.
They get room and board
(most bring their own mat-
tress), food and education for
about $600 a year American
— for what is considered a
top-notch school,” she said.
“We get a lot of help from
Australia through their AUS/
Aid but there are strict rules
to it. An American is running
the school.
“I’ve been a sister for 26
years and served in places
such as Toledo, Fort Wayne/
South Bend in Indiana and
New Smyrna and Jacksonville
in Florida. New Smyrna
is the farthest south in the
United States I’ve served and
I was Director of Religious
Education at Holy Rosary
School in Jacksonville.
“This is the first place I
have served that I didn’t have
a lot of English as a Second
Language learners (she
works with the Lima Literacy
Council, using her ESL certif-
icate gained through courses
offered by the University of
Notre Dame): I am tutoring
in Lima. Everywhere else,
there was a strong presence
of Hispanic or other immi-
grants that I worked with.”
Having been to New
Guinea before, she pretty
much knows what she is get-
ting into.
“It’s definitely different
than the States, especially the
culture. They have a tremen-
dous work ethic, especially for
education,” she continued. “If
they cannot cut it education-
ally, they ended up going back
to their villages to get mar-
ried and work in the gardens,
especially the girls. They are
so respectful as well.
“The things we take for
granted on a daily basis are
not there everyday experi-
ence. Many of them don’t
have even an outhouse — it’s
literally a hole in the ground.
The compound we are at
has flush toilets and running
water. We do have solar pan-
els for electricity but if they
haven’t had sun for a while,
which also happens at times,
there’s no electricity and no
hot showers.
“The last time I was there,
we had two stations for our
television but because it’s sat-
ellite, if it’s raining — which
it does a lot — they don’t
come in. Their diet consists of
a lot of fruits and vegetables
that they grow themselves.
The bread they eat is similar
to a sweet potato; there’s a lot
more nutrition.”
Education is not the only
thing Sr. Tina is involved
in: she is on the board of
Tender Times Day Care in
Delphos and is also a key
component of the “Suppers
On Us” Community Unity
organization in Delphos that
helps provide free meals for
the needy.
She also interacts quite
a bit with the Delphos
Ray McKowen Knights of
Columbus Council 1362 and
its Columbian Squires, attend-
ing various functions for both
as invited. She recently was
awarded the Toledo Diocesan
Religious of the Year from
the K of C.
“I will miss the friends I
have made in Delphos; I will
miss working with RCIA;
there’s a lot of good people
involved. I will likely leave
Delphos Aug. 13 or 14 and
then depart for New Guinea
Aug. 16,” she concluded.

Ohio E. coli outbreak grows;
3 people in hospital
DAYTON (AP) — An E.
coli outbreak that began with
people who ate at a southwest
Ohio picnic has reached 68
cases, with three people in
serious condition, health offi-
cials said Wednesday.
The illnesses were first
reported in Germantown,
about 15 miles southwest of
Dayton, after a July 3 custom-
er appreciation picnic for a
lawn care business. Officials
were interviewing people
who ate at the picnic and later
fell ill to try to determine how
the outbreak started.
The E. coli bacteria can
cause diarrhea, dehydration
and, in severe cases, kidney
failure.
Those who remained
hospitalized Wednesday
and were in serious condi-
tion included a 4-year-old
girl, a 14-year-old boy, and
a 73-year-old man. They
have developed hemolytic
uremic syndrome (HUS),
which can lead to acute,
short-term kidney failure,
Bill Wharton, a spokesman
for Montgomery County’s
health department in
Dayton, said.
Wharton said anyone with
a weaker immune system,
such as the very young or
elderly people, can be more
susceptible to the secondary
infections. But a person’s
overall health and the amount
of bacteria involved also are
factors, he said.
More than a dozen people
had been hospitalized since
the outbreak, and 16 of the 68
who developed symptoms —
including stomach cramps and
diarrhea — have been con-
firmed by laboratory testing
as having E. coli. Laboratory
tests were not done on every-
one who reported being ill,
Wharton said.
E. coli is spread through
contaminated food, but it can
also be spread from person to
person.
Wharton said the first
secondary infection in the
outbreak was reported July
16 when a person who ate
contaminated food served at
the picnic apparently passed
the disease to a household
member who did not attend
the picnic.
“It’s even more impera-
tive that those 68 people who
are ill understand that they
need to wash their hands so
they don’t give this to family
members,” Wharton said.
As many as 300 people
attended the picnic. The pic-
nic’s host provided some of
the food, but people attending
the picnic also brought food,
officials said.

Dear EarthTalk: We’ve
been hearing for years how
producing red meat is bad
for the environment while
consuming it is bad for our
health. How do other types
of meat, fish, dairy and veg-
etable proteins stack up in
terms of environmental and
health impacts?
— Julia Saperstein, via
e-mail
Not all forms of protein
are created equal as to the
environmental and health
implications of raising and
consuming them. A 2011
assessment by the non-prof-
it Environmental Working
Group (EWG) found that
“different meats and different
production systems have vary-
ing health, climate and other
environmental impacts.”
The quantity of chemi-
cal fertilizers, fuel and other
“production inputs” used, the
differences in soil conditions
and production systems and
the extent to which best prac-
tices such as cover cropping,
intensive grazing or manure
management are implement-
ed all affect the amount of
greenhouse gas emissions a
meat product is responsible
for generating. To wit, lamb,
beef, cheese, pork and farmed
salmon raised “convention-
ally” (e.g. with inputs includ-
ing hormones and antibiotics
and feed derived from crops
grown with chemical pesti-
cides and fertilizers) were
determined by EWG to gen-
erate the most greenhouse
gases.
EWG partnered with the
environmental analysis firm
CleanMetrics to assess the
climate impacts via lifecycle
assessments of 20 popular
types of meat, fish, dairy and
vegetable proteins. EWG’s
assessment calculated the
full “cradle-to-grave” carbon
footprint of each food item
based on the greenhouse gas
emissions generated before
and after it left the farm—
from the pesticides and fertil-
izer used to grow animal feed
all the way through the graz-
ing, animal raising, process-
ing, transportation, cooking
and even disposal of unused
food (since some 20 percent
of edible meat gets thrown
away by Americans).
According to EWG, con-
ventionally raised lamb, beef,
cheese and pork also generate
more polluting waste, pound
for pound. Of these, lamb has
the greatest impact, followed
by beef and then by cheese—
so vegetarians who eat dairy
aren’t off the hook. “Beef has
more than twice the emis-
sions of pork, nearly four
times more than chicken and
more than 13 times as much
as vegetable proteins such as
beans, lentils and tofu,” sum-
marizes EWG.
On the health front, EWG
reports that “eating too much
of these greenhouse gas-
intensive meats boosts expo-
sure to toxins and increases
the risk of a wide variety
of serious health problems,
including heart disease, cer-
tain cancers, obesity and, in
some studies, diabetes.”
Besides cutting out ani-
mal-derived proteins alto-
gether, the best thing we can
do for our health and the
environment is to cut down
on our meat consumption and
choose only organic, humane
and/or grass-fed meat, eggs
and dairy. “Overall, these
products are the least harmful,
most ethical choices,” says
EWG, adding that grass-fed
and pasture-raised products
are typically more nutritious
and carry less risk of bacterial
contamination. “While best
management practices can
demonstrably reduce overall
emissions and environmental
harm, the most effective and
efficient way to reduce green-
house gas emissions and envi-
ronmental impacts from live-
stock is simply to eat, waste
and produce less meat and
dairy.” For more information,

A study by the Environmental Working Group assessed
the climate impacts of 20 popular types of meat, fish, dairy

proteins such as beans, lentils and tofu.
I read The Weight of
Silence by Heather Gudenkauf
in one sitting. So it’s an easy
read. A good read, though?
Not exactly. It did hold my
attention, as the author threw
in little curveballs along the
way to keep one reading the
book. Overall, though, once I
read the final page, I remained
deeply unsatisfied.
The story revolves around
two little girls who go missing
one morning in a small Iowa
town. Calli is a seven-year-
old with selective mutism;
she hasn’t spoken
since she was a
toddler. Petra is
her best friend
and “voice,” as
she understands
Calli and speaks
for her. The
story takes place
over the course
of this one day,
the day the girls
go missing, and
it focuses on the
search by the
girls’ families,
revealing secrets
about many of the townspeo-
ple along the way.
The book is structured so
that each chapter is told from
the point of view of a dif-
ferent character. This is not
my favorite format. I can get
into it sometimes, though. In
this case, it irritated me. I
think part of the reason is
the author didn’t give each
character a distinct voice, so
much of the time I’d for-
get from which character’s
point of view I was reading.
I also didn’t connect with any
characters and found them
unlikeable for the most part.
Calli’s mother, for example,
made questionable decisions
throughout the book, and
I could not understand the
motivation. I just wanted to
slap her silly sometimes.
This book was anti-climac-
tic in the most severe way.
The resolution came way
before the book’s ending, and
I had long ago figured out
who the “bad guy” was; I’m
never able to do
that. Events were
largely contrived
in various ways
throughout. In
the end, I found
myself not even
caring anymore,
but I wanted to
finish the book
since I’d come so
far.
There are a
few elements that
might mildly cap-
tivate the reader,
such as discover-
ing the reason Calli stopped
speaking, which was maybe
the only interesting fact for
me. All in all, The Weight of
Silence is a light book that
really doesn’t say much at all.

in central Ohio
COLUMBUS (AP) — An
Ohio Supreme Court commit-
tee studying the state’s capital
punishment law plans to vote
on recommendations Thursday
requiring the collection of data
to detect racial bias in death
penalty cases.
The data would include a
review of past cases as well as
collecting information in the
future on all homicides that
might be eligible for capital
punishment.
Other recommendations
would require prosecutors,
lawyers and judges involved in
death penalty cases to be trained
to protect against racial bias.
Among precedents cited for
collecting the data is a 2005
Associated Press study that found
offenders who killed white vic-
tims were more likely to face a
death sentence than those whose
victims were black.
The task force is not debat-
ing whether the state should
have the death penalty.
COLUMBUS (AP) — The
late submission of more than
100 affidavits increases the
count of Ohio Internet cafes
or “sweepstakes” businesses to
more than 770.
The state originally esti-
mated there were fewer than
300 of the largely unregulated
businesses, which offer games
functioning like slot machines
with cash prizes. Customers
pay for Internet time or phone
cards and use them to bet
points on computers loaded
with games such as poker.
A law that created a one-
year moratorium on new
Internet cafes required the
businesses to submit affidavits
confirming they exist.
Attorney General Mike
DeWine says records submit-
ted after the deadline raised the
count to 772. His office is con-
cerned some are from facilities
not currently in operation that
may try to skirt the law.
DeWine is pushing to regu-
late the businesses more.
COLUMBUS (AP) — Vice
President Joe Biden is back in
Ohio.
President Barack Obama’s
campaign said Biden will tour
a manufacturing facility and
speak at a labor union hall in
Columbus today to highlight the
administration’s support for the
auto industry and the increase in
Ohio manufacturing jobs.
Biden will speak at the
Plumber & Pipefitters Local
after visiting an undisclosed
manufacturing plant in
Columbus in the morning.
The campaign is calling it
part of the “Made in Ohio
Manufacturing Tour.”
The pace of campaigning by
the two sides in Ohio has been
picking up in recent weeks.
Biden’s trip to the swing
state comes three days after
the president held a town hall
in Cincinnati. Republican
challenger Mitt Romney
made three stops in Ohio
Wednesday.

WASHINGTON (AP) —
Justice Antonin Scalia said
Wednesday he hasn’t had a
“falling out” with Chief Justice
John Roberts over the Supreme
Court’s landmark 5-4 decision
validating much of President
Barack Obama’s health care
overhaul.
In an interview on CNN’s
“Piers Morgan Tonight,” the
justice said despite reports that
he and Roberts had clashed,
there is not a personal feud
going on between the court’s
two leading conservatives.
“There are clashes on legal
questions but not personally,”
Scalia said of the court.
The Supreme Court ear-
lier this month upheld much
of Obama’s signature health
care law, with Roberts sid-
ing with the court’s liberals to
uphold the hotly debated core
requirement that nearly every
American have health insur-
ance. The decision allowed the
law to go forward with its aim
of covering more than 30 mil-
lion uninsured Americans.
Since then, Roberts has
been the focus of derision from
some of the nation’s leading
conservatives, and there have
been reports of fractures in
the relationships on the court’s
conservative wing, of which
Roberts and Scalia are mem-
bers.
“No, I haven’t had a fall-
ing out with Justice Roberts,”
Scalia said, when asked about
a purported clash between him
and Roberts.
“Loud words exchanged,
slamming of doors?” prompt-
ed Morgan.
“No, no, nothing like that,”
said Scalia, who noted that he
was out of the country for most
of the criticism of Roberts.
Scalia also emphasized
“the court is not at all a politi-
cal institution” and said he
believed “not a single one” of
his Supreme Court colleagues
considers politics when mak-
ing decisions at the court.
“I don’t think any of my
colleagues on any cases vote
the way they do for political
reasons,” he said. “They vote
the way they do because they
have their own judicial phi-
losophy.”
Scalia also defended the
court’s 2-year-old decision in
Citizens United to give corpo-
rate and labor union interests
the right to spend freely to
advocate for or against can-
didates for state and local
offices.
“I think Thomas Jefferson
would have said the more
speech, the better,” said
Scalia, when asked about so-
called super PAC spending
on national elections. “That’s
what the First Amendment is
all about. So long as the peo-
ple know where the speech is
coming from.”
Scalia also said in the inter-
view that the case that brings
about the “most waves of dis-
agreement” is still the decision
that decided the 2000 presiden-
tial election between George
W. Bush and Al Gore. But the
justice said his normal answer
to people who ask about Bush
v. Gore is “get over it.”
Scalia said it was Gore who
decided to bring the courts
into the battle. “The only
question in Bush v. Gore was
whether the presidency would
be decided by the Florida
Supreme Court or the United
States Supreme Court,” Scalia
said. “It was the only question
and it’s not a hard one.”

‘falling out’

By HOPE YEN
Associated Press
WASHINGTON — In
a recent speech, President
Barack Obama referred to
the “middle class” 14 times,
defining it as a family that
makes up to $250,000 a year.
Republican challenger Mitt
Romney has looked at it
from the other direction, say-
ing that someone who falls
into poverty “is still middle
class.”
In the fuzzy labels and
loose speech of this political
season, “middle class” has
ballooned to cover just about
everyone. So what does the
term really mean?
There’s no official defini-
tion.
If anything, a slew of
economic data suggests a
middle class that’s actually
shrinking. Mid-wage manu-
facturing and other jobs are
disappearing due to automa-
tion and outsourcing, while
lower-income positions and
poverty spike higher. The
White House’s chief econo-
mist, Alan Krueger, said in
January that the middle class
fell from 50 percent of U.S.
households in 1970 to 42 per-
cent in 2010, as more families
moved to the extreme ends of
income distribution.
But it’s not just about eco-
nomic ranges. And politicians
are not bound by such gauges
anyway.
“Politicians love to use the
term, because it’s vague and
connotes an image of regu-
lar American people.” said
Dennis Gilbert, a sociology
professor at Hamilton College
and author of “The American
Class Structure in an Age of
Growing Inequality.” He said,
the varying uses of “mid-
dle class” on the campaign
trail are “dishonest, and it’s
absurd.”
Sociologists take a broader
view and focus not on income,
but occupation: an “upper
middle class” of white-collar
specialists (lawyers, engi-
neers, professors, economists
and architects); and a “middle
class” of lower-level white-
collar workers (teachers,
nurses, insurance sales and
real estate agents). Together,
these groups make up about
45 percent of households
and sit near the upper end of
the income distribution, just
behind the top 1 percent.
In recent months, the
phrase has been popping up
with increased frequency.
Referring to the election as
a “make-or-break” moment
for the middle class, Obama
used the term repeatedly in
his July 9 speech calling for
an extension of “middle-
class” tax breaks for families
making less than $250,000,
or $200,000 for individuals
— basically everyone but the
top 2 percent. He mentioned
the phrase seven times at a
fundraiser Tuesday in San
Antonio.
Romney has suggested that
the upper bounds of the middle
class include families earn-
ing $200,000. He’s pushing
an extension of the Bush-era
tax cuts for everyone, includ-
ing the wealthiest 2 percent.
Romney’s campaign seeks
to highlight a weak economy
that he says is a “kick in the
gut to the middle class,” with
a new video this week attack-
ing what he calls an Obama
record of “political payoffs
and middle-class layoffs.”
The meaning of “middle
class” has grown even harder
to parse following a populist
Occupy movement that for
months protested high unem-
ployment and income inequal-
ity with a rallying cry of “We
are the 99 percent.”
Formal definitions vary,
but few academics would say
it covers more than 60 percent
of Americans.
By HENRY C. JACKSON
Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The
Senate is spending this week
debating, and summarily
rejecting, Democratic-written
bills to disclose the names of
people who give more than
$10,000 to help elect people
such as, say, Mitt Romney,
and to take away tax breaks
from companies taken over
by people such as, say, Mitt
Romney, who move opera-
tions overseas.
Their latest effort, unveiled
Wednesday, would make can-
didates for federal office, like,
say, Mitt Romney, disclose
any of their financial holdings
in offshore tax havens, such
as Bermuda or the Cayman
Islands.
Senate Democrats certain-
ly aren’t alone in devoting
congressional workdays to
bills attacking the other par-
ty’s presidential candidate.
House Republicans last
week voted to repeal President
Barack Obama’s health care
overhaul. Next week, they
plan to vote on freezing all of
former President George W.
Bush’s tax cuts for another
year, including those on the
top 2 percent, whom Obama
says should pay more. On
Wednesday, the House passed
a GOP bill ordering Obama to
specify how many thousands
of defense workers will lose
their jobs if the deficit-cut-
ting deal he and Republicans
negotiated a year ago stands.
Congress is just two
weeks away from a five-week
August recess, with plenty of
critical issues hanging over
the Capitol. But neither party
seems able to resist the allure
of presidential politics. As
tourists crowd the galleries
to escape a record heat wave,
lawmakers in both parties
bash their opponents and push
quixotic bills even as they
complain about key work not
being done.
On Wednesday,
Democratic Sens. Dick
Durbin and Carl Levin took
the floor to speak out against
the use of offshore tax havens
and tout their bill to make
candidates for federal office
lay out financial holdings
they or their spouses have in
any offshore account. Both
senators carried on, seem-
ingly in earnest, never letting
on that the legislation mir-
rored Obama’s recent attacks
against Romney’s use of off-
shore bank accounts.
Legislatively, the Senate
spent all day debating wheth-
er to debate Democrats’ Bring
Jobs Home Act, which would
take away tax breaks for com-
panies that outsource jobs
overseas — another Obama
attack line against Romney.
It prompted a withering reply
from GOP leader Mitch
McConnell, R-Ky.
“What are we doing
here? Is the Senate a mes-
saging machine?” he said on
the Senate floor. “Or are we
doing the basic work of the
government?”
McConnell may object.
But his GOP colleagues in
the House are hardly plowing
through a nonpartisan to-do
list.
House Republican lead-
ers actually left the Capitol
on Wednesday, walk-
ing a block to Republican
National Committee head-
quarters, expressly to weigh
in on the elections. Speaker
John Boehner told reporters
that Obama’s criticism of
Romney’s business career and
refusal to disclose more tax
returns are a distraction from
the administration’s steward-
ship of the wobbly economy.
“The American people are
asking, ‘Where are the jobs?”’
Boehner said. “They’re not
asking where the hell the tax
returns are.”
Obama’s questions about
when, exactly, Romney left
Bain Capital amount to an
“attack on the private sector,”
Boehner said, and show that
Obama “doesn’t give a damn
about middle-class Americans
who are out there looking for
work.”
The House’s official busi-
ness Wednesday also seemed
designed to put the president
on the spot.
With an overwhelm-
ing 414-2 vote, Republicans
pushed to passage a bill
requiring Obama to lay out
in full detail how he would
implement nearly $1 billion
in spending cuts next year
— half of them in Pentagon
accounts — agreed to last
summer during the debt ceil-
ing debate. Republicans are
trying to use the issue against
Obama, maintaining that any
right-thinking commander in
chief wouldn’t undermine the
military with deep defense
cuts.

BOWLING GREEN
— A defiant Mitt Romney
brushed aside more calls for
the release of his tax returns
on Wednesday and instead
accused President Barack
Obama of protecting his job
at the expense of millions of
unemployed Americans.
Intensifying his attacks as
Obama focused on official
meetings in Washington, the
Republican presidential can-
didate told an overflowing
Ohio crowd that the Democrat
hasn’t met with his jobs coun-
cil in more than six months. In
that time, however, Romney
says Obama held 100 fund-
raisers.
“His priority is not creat-
ing jobs for you,” Romney
declared in Bowling Green.
“His priority is trying to keep
his own job. And that’s why
he’s going to lose it.”
For the often-reserved
Romney, the fiery rhetoric
marks an aggressive shift as
he struggles to answer ques-
tions about his business career
and personal tax returns. The
former businessman, who
would be among the nation’s
wealthiest presidents if elect-
ed, has broken from tradition
so far, having released just
one year of personal income
tax returns and promised to
release a second.
But in speeches across
four states this week, Romney
has thrilled supporters with
aggressive attacks on Obama
and charges of “crony capital-
ism.” At the same time, the
Republican’s campaign has
teased reporters with news
that Romney’s selection of a
running mate could come any
day, forcing new attention on
what may be the most impor-
tant decision of the campaign
so far.
National polls suggest that
the candidates are locked in
a tight race less than four
months before voters weigh
in. Obama was expected to
return to campaigning today
for a two-day swing though
Florida.
The growing war of words
between the campaigns drew a
response from House Speaker
John Boehner, R-Ohio, who
took a rare step into the presi-
dential race Wednesday.
Congress’ top Republican
told reporters in Washington
that Obama’s criticism of
Romney’s career and taxes
are meant to distract from the
administration’s handling of
the economy. Boehner said
Obama’s questions are an
“attack on the private sector”
and show that the president
“doesn’t give a damn about
middle-class Americans who
are out there looking for
work.”
The speaker also offered a
warning for those, including
fellow Republicans, who are
calling on Romney to make
more tax returns public. “The
American people are asking,
‘Where are the jobs?”’ Boehner
said. “They’re not asking where
the hell the tax returns are. It’s
not about tax returns, it’s about
the economy.”
The warning didn’t quiet
the critics of Romney’s stand
on tax returns.
“If you’re going to run for
president, it’s not necessarily
comfortable but it has become
a tradition and it’s an impor-
tant one, you make your tax
returns available because you
think the American people
deserve that kind of transpar-
ency,” Obama spokesman Jay
Carney told reporters.
Several high-profile
Republicans joined the call
for transparency, including
Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe,
Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar,
Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley,
Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson,
and Texas Gov. Rick Perry,
who challenged Romney for
the GOP nomination earlier
in the year.

By DOUG FEINBERG
The Associated Press
MANCHESTER, England
— With the first team strug-
gling, Geno Auriemma went
to his reserves to turn the
game around.
Maya Moore and Lindsay
Whalen sparked a 21-0 run to
help the U.S.
women’s bas-
ketball team
beat Britain
88-63 on
We d n e s d a y
night in an
e x h i b i t i o n
game. Moore scored 18 points
and Whalen added 13.
The Americans trailed by
11 points in the first 7 minutes
before the second unit took
over.
“The good thing about
them is they are all young
and bring tremendous energy
to the court,” Auriemma said.
“This is their first time through
and they just play with a lot of
joy and fun and tremendous
sense of urgency. They want
to play and want to prove they
belong on this team.”
Moore and Whalen, along
with Angel McCoughtry, all
will be playing in their first
Olympic games which begin
on July 28. They just want
to continue the success the
Americans have had.
The U.S. was still with-
out Sue Bird, who left the
team after the death of her
stepfather Dennis this past
weekend. She practiced on
Saturday and Sunday but
missed the exhibition game
on Monday against Brazil to
be with her family. Auriemma
said he thinks Bird will rejoin
the team this weekend when
they travel to Istanbul for the
next leg of their pre-Olympic
training tour.
The Americans will play
Turkey and Croatia in exhibi-
tion games before heading to
London on July 25. The U.S.
has won four straight Olympic
gold medals.
While the U.S. has domi-
nated Olympics play, Britain
is a newcomer playing in its
first games. The coach is no
stranger to the Games, as Tom
Maher has led four different
countries to the Olympics. He
guided Australia to the bronze
medal in 1996 and silver
in 2000. He then took New
Zealand (2004) and China
(2008) to the Games.
Maher is proud of the great
strides Britain’s made over
the past four years.
Jo Leedham scored 21
points to lead Britain while
Stef Collins added 14.
Britain got off to a great
start in front of its home crowd,
outhustling the Americans.
The British opened up a 21-10
advantage behind Leedham
with 3 minutes left in the first
half. That prompted Auriemma
to go with a more defensive
lineup. The group of Moore,
Whalen, McCoughtry, Swin
Cash and Tina Charles quickly
responded by scoring the final
15 points of the quarter to make
it 26-21.
The Americans scored the
first six points of the second
quarter to make it 21 straight
before Leedham hit a tough
runner to end the spurt. That
run got the U.S. men’s team
excited. The men, who play
Britain in an exhibition game
tonight, were sitting courtside
for the game and left with
about 4 minutes left and the
women up 25 points.
The U.S. only led 47-32 at
the half behind Moore, who
had 14 at the break. Britain
wouldn’t go away cutting
its deficit to seven midway
through the third quarter.
That’s when Auriemma put
the sparkplugs back in and
they promptly led the U.S. to
a 19-4 run to close the period.
Whalen started the burst with
a reverse layup, scoring eight
of her points during the spurt
which ended any hopes of a
British upset.
Louganis back in US diving fold
for Olympics
Greg Louganis knows what it’s like
to be perfect. And he’s concerned
that kind of pressure will be the undo-
ing of a lot of athletes at the London
Olympics.
He’s trying to make sure the stress
of winning medals isn’t heaped on the
shoulders of American divers, who
have been chasing his standard of
excellence since Louganis became
the sport’s icon in the 1980s. The
U.S. has been blanked in diving in two
consecutive Olympics and hasn’t won
a gold since 2000.
The man who won four Olympic
gold medals and resembled a Greek
god while spinning off the 3-meter
springboard and 10-meter platform is
back in the fold at his first games with
USA Diving, working as an athlete
mentor.
“I’m hoping it’s not too little, too
late,” Louganis said at last month’s
U.S. diving trials near Seattle.
He came on board last year —
late in the 4-year Olympic cycle —
after being invited by Steve Foley,
an Australian who had taken over
as USA Diving’s high performance
director from Ron O’Brien, Louganis’
former coach.
It marked a reunion between
Louganis and
the sport’s
U.S. govern-
ing body after
years of sepa-
ration, which
he attributes
to not being
invited and
not feeling
welcome.
Louganis thinks it was made pos-
sible because he stopped coaching
after briefly working with a diving
club in Fullerton, Calif., last year.
Not coaching meant he wasn’t a
threat to other coaches, who feared
Louganis’ reputation would lure their
divers away. He thought doing both
would be a conflict of interest.
“I’m not coaching dives, I’m observ-
ing and making recommendations of
what I see, of what they may be able
to add to enhance their training pro-
grams,” he said.
More important to Louganis and
what he most enjoys is being able
to share his experiences, including
successes and failures, with the cur-
rent generation of U.S. divers. He
will be in London during the games
and afterward he’ll attend a camp for
young British divers.
Most of today’s divers weren’t born
when Louganis was making history
as the only male diver to win con-
secutive Olympic gold medals in both
springboard and platform diving.
The topic most ask about is when
Louganis hit his head on the spring-
board while leading the preliminaries
in Seoul. Barely 30 minutes later, he
returned to compete and notched
the highest score ever in a qualifying
round. He went on to win gold.
Among the current Olympians he’s
worked with are David Boudia, Nick
McCrory and Troy Dumais, the only
American man besides Louganis to
make four Olympic diving teams.
Louganis’ Olympic success set
the bar so high that no one has yet
equaled it. But he says today’s divers
are better than he was.
Synchronized diving has been
added to the Olympic program since
Louganis retired, creating four more
events.
Louganis describes his mentoring
work as a “crash course” in trying
to tweak the mindsets of U.S. div-
ers who might be obsessed with
perfection.
And if he can move the USOC’s
focus even slightly away from winning
the medal count, then Louganis will
feel better.
He cites the suicide of freestyle
skier Jeret “Speedy” Peterson last
July and the death of former Olympic
champion diver Mark Lenzi this year
as examples of athletes who could
have used help transitioning to the
real world after retirement.
Louganis also works with the U.S.
Olympians Association, a support
network for former Olympic athletes.
In his new roles, he feels relaxed
and empowered because he’s doing
it his way.
Pistorius set for long-awaited
Olympic debut
GEMONA, Italy — Even when he’s
looking at photos of his bleeding and
blistered leg stumps, Oscar Pistorius
smiles.
And with his Olympic debut
approaching, it’s easy to understand
why.
Pistorius, whose legs were ampu-
tated below the knee when he was
a baby, is set to make history by run-
ning — yes, running — in the London
Olympics. He will be the first
double-amputee athlete to compete
at the Olympics and his journey has
been long and rife with hurdles.
When he finally got word earlier
this month that he had a place on
South Africa’s team — his was the
last name of 125 penciled in — his
first reaction was relief. Then came
utter joy.
“I think I woke up the next morn-
ing with cramps in my cheeks. I
was smiling in my sleep,” Pistorius
recalled during a recent interview at
his training base in northeastern Italy.
“You also realize very quickly ... it’s
the London Olympics and I need to
perform. Very stressful.
“You’ve made the entrance to write
the test but now the test is in front
of you.”
The test comes Aug. 4, the open-
ing day of the 400-meter heats.
The “Blade Runner,” as he is
known, runs with carbon-fiber blades
that often cause blisters and rub
his stumps raw. Pistorius was born
without fibula bones due to a con-
genital defect and lost his legs at 11
months. It never stopped him from
playing sports — even rugby — with
prosthetics.
But his running prosthetics led
to years of controversy. Already a
Paralympic gold medalist, Pistorius
was initially banned from competing
against able-bodied peers because
many argued that his blades gave
him an unfair advantage.
In 2008, however, the Court of
Arbitration for Sport cleared him to
compete. Last year, he ran on South
Africa’s 4x400 relay team at the 2011
world championships and though he
sat out the final, he won a silver
medal because he competed in the
heats.
Pistorius is aware not everyone is
convinced he should compete at all.
American LaShawn Merritt, the
defending Olympic champion in the
400, looks forward to racing against
the 25-year-old Pistorius.
Pistorius and his team have been
based in Gemona for the last two
European seasons after the mayor
asked him if he’d consider training
there to promote the town, located
near the Italian Alps, just across the
mountains from Austria.
Pistorius said he needed a track,
ideally with the same Mondo surface
as London’s Olympic Stadium.
It was built for him.
Pistorius is hoping to run the
sub-45-second time that he and his
coach, Ampie Louw, are certain he
can achieve. His best time, so far,
is 45.07.
On Tuesday, Pistorius finished
second, in 46.56 seconds, in the
400 at his final Olympic warm-up
race in Lignano, Italy, well behind
Calvin Smith of the United States in
45.52.
Moore and Whalen
help US women
beat Britain 88-63
The Associated Press
National League
LOS ANGELES — Matt Kemp hit a
2-run homer in the 12th inning, giving
the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-3 vic-
tory over the Philadelphia Phillies on
Wednesday.
Rookie left-hander Jake Diekman
(2-0) walked Mark Ellis with one out
and Kemp drove a 1-0 pitch the other
way into the pavilion seats in right-
center for his 13th home run and sixth
career walkoff homer, capping the
4-hour, 25-minute marathon.
Jamey Wright (4-2), the sixth
Dodgers pitcher, worked one inning
for the victory as the Dodgers ended a
4-game losing streak.
Hunter Pence hit a 2-run single in
the 10th inning with the bases loaded
to give Philadelphia a 3-1 lead.
But the Dodgers responded with
two in the bottom half against closer
Jonathan Papelbon, whose blown save
was his third in 24 opportunities.
NATIONALS 4, METS 3
WASHINGTON — Jordan
Zimmermann pitched six shutout
innings and Adam LaRoche hit a 2-run
homer to lead Washington to the win
over New York.
Steve Lombardozzi added a 2-run
double as Washington gave the Mets a
sixth straight loss.
Zimmermann (7-6) won his fourth
straight, allowing just four hits in six
innings, striking out four and walking
none. Sean Burnett worked a scoreless
eighth but Tyler Clippard allowed two
home runs in the ninth to David Wright
and Jason Bay. Clippard struck out
Jordany Valdespin for his 15th save.
Chris Young (2-4) took the loss.
DIAMONDBACKS 7, REDS 1
CINCINNATI — Jason Kubel
returned from a sore hamstring and
homered in his first two at-bats as
Arizona dropped Cincinnati back into a
first-place tie in the NL Central.
Kubel was out of the lineup for four
games because of the hamstring. He
hit a 2-run shot in the first inning and a
solo homer in the fourth off Mat Latos
(7-3), who lost for the first time since
April 18. Latos also forced in a run with
a bases-loaded walk.
Ian Kennedy (7-8) gave up eight
hits and a run in eight innings, striking
out seven.
The Reds have lost 2-of-3 since
learning first baseman Joey Votto
needed surgery on his left knee.
He’s expected to be sidelined for 3-4
weeks.
PIRATES 9, ROCKIES 6
DENVER — Garrett Jones had
three hits, including one of Pittsburgh’s
four home runs, and Pedro Alvarez
also homered to lead the Pirates over
the Rockies.
James McDonald (10-3) struggled
through five tough innings for the win.
Rod Barajas and Casey McGehee also
went deep for the Pirates.
Dexter Fowler and Carlos Gonzalez
homered and Andrew Brown had three
hits for Colorado. One of Brown’s hits,
an RBI single in the fourth, tied it 6-all
before the Pirates took control.
Jones started the fifth with a single
off reliever Matt Reynolds (3-1) and
McGehee followed with his eighth
homer of the season. One out later,
Barajas homered to make it 9-6.
BREWERS 4, CARDINALS 3
MILWAUKEE — The Brewers
pounced on Adam Wainwright and a
shaky St. Louis infield early, then held
on through a nervous ninth inning for a
win over the Cardinals.
Francisco Rodriguez walked in a run
before getting Lance Berkman to fly out
with the bases loaded, nailing down his
second save since taking over as the
team’s closer Tuesday night.
Wainwright (7-10) got off to a rough
start and didn’t get much help from his
infielders, who committed three errors
in the Brewers’ 4-run first inning —
including a pair by shortstop Rafael
Furcal.
Deposed closer John Axford (3-6)
claimed the win.
PADRES 8, ASTROS 4
SAN DIEGO — Yonder Alonso drove
in three runs and San Diego used a
5-run fourth inning to beat Houston for
its fourth win in five games.
Clayton Richard (7-10) allowed four
runs in 8 1/3 innings to snap a 2-game
losing streak. The left-hander gave
up nine hits, including two home runs
by Matt Downs, and struck out two.
Richard added an RBI double in the
sixth. Huston Street came on in the
ninth and earned his 15th save.
Wandy Rodriguez (7-8) allowed five
runs and four hits over four innings,
snapping a streak of 48 games in which
the left-hander had lasted at least five
innings.
CUBS 5, MARLINS 1, 7 inn, rain
CHICAGO — Starlin Castro hom-
ered and Chicago batted around in
a 4-run seventh inning to win a rain-
shortened game.
Heavy rain began falling with Miami
batting in the top of the eighth and
the teams never returned to the field.
The game was called after a 1-hour,
17-minute delay.
Castro hit his eighth home run of
the season off Marlins starter Josh
Johnson (5-7) leading off the fourth.
Jeff Baker highlighted a seventh-inning
rally with a 2-run, pinch-hit double with
the bases loaded.
James Russell (3-0) pitched a score-
less seventh to earn the victory in relief
of Jeff Samardzija, who struck out nine
in five innings.
Jose Reyes homered for Miami and
Emilio Bonifacio had three hits, falling a
homer shy of the cycle.
The Cubs are 13-5 over their last 18
games and have won nine of their last
11 at home.
GIANTS 9, BRAVES 4, 11 innings
ATLANTA — Brandon Crawford and
Gregor Blanco hit 3-run homers in the
11th inning for San Francisco, which
blew a 2-run lead in the 10th.
Anthony Varvaro (1-1) hit Eli
Whiteside with a pitch to open the 11th
before walking Brandon Belt. Chad
Durbin replaced Varvaro and struck out
Joaquin Arias.
Crawford’s homer off Durbin came
one pitch after he fouled a ball off
his right knee and collapsed to the
ground in pain. The left-handed hitting
Crawford then pulled the next pitch
from Durbin into the seats in right.
Chipper Jones’ second throw-
ing error of the game allowed Justin
Christian to reach base. With two
outs, Durbin issued an intentional walk
to Melky Cabrera before giving up
Blanco’s homer to make it 9-3.
Jones homered off Brad Penny in
the 11th.
The Giants were one out from the
win when Brian McCann hit a tying
2-run homer off Santiago Casilla (3-4) in
the bottom of the 10th. It was Casilla’s
sixth blown save in 29 opportunities.
American League
OAKLAND, Calif. — Brandon Hicks
led off the bottom of the ninth with
his first major-league homer, lifting
Oakland to a 4-3 victory over Texas.
Hicks connected off Michael Kirkman
(0-1) for Oakland’s major league-lead-
ing ninth walkoff win. He became the
fourth player in franchise history to hit
a game-ending homer with his first
career shot and the second this year
— Derek Norris did it June 25 against
San Francisco.
Josh Reddick hit a tying 2-run
double in the seventh for the A’s.
Evan Scribner and Sean Doolittle each
pitched a perfect inning and All-Star
Ryan Cook (3-2) worked the ninth for
the win.
Michael Young hit a go-ahead RBI
single in the sixth for the Rangers.
Craig Gentry hit an RBI double and
Nelson Cruz added a run-scoring sin-
gle for Texas.
YANKEES 6, BLUE JAYS 0, 6 1/2
innings
NEW YORK — Hiroki Kuroda
pitched 4-hit ball and Mark Teixeira hit
a 2-run homer in a 4-run first inning as
New York completed the sweep with a
rain-shortened victory.
The game was called after a 58-min-
ute rain delay before the Yankees
could come to bat in the seventh.
Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones
had run-scoring hits in the first and
Dewayne Wise had two RBIs. The
Yankees handed Ricky Romero (8-6)
his career-worst fifth straight loss and
beat Toronto for the eighth straight time
in the Bronx.
Derek Jeter led off the first with a
double, the first of the four extra-base
hits in the inning. Teixeira hit his 19th
homer, a 2-run shot, and Robinson
Cano and Jones had consecutive dou-
bles that made it 4-0.
TIGERS 7, ANGELS 2
DETROIT — Doug Fister gave up
two hits over eight innings and Prince
Fielder capped a 4-run second with a
2-run single for Detroit.
Fister (4-6) allowed one run on Albert
Pujols’ homer, struck out a season-high
10 and walked two for his third straight
win. Joaquin Benoit replaced him in the
ninth and gave up a 1-out triple to Mike
Trout, who scored on Torii Hunter’s
groundout.
Angels starter C.J. Wilson (9-6)
gave up a season-high seven runs,
eight hits and five walks while striking
out seven over six innings.
Pujols hit a 2-out solo homer, his
17th, in the first inning to give Los
Angeles its only lead — which didn’t
last long. Delmon Young made it 1-all
in the home half.
RED SOX 10, WHITE SOX 1
BOSTON — Cody Ross hit 3-run
homers in consecutive innings and
Felix Doubront pitched six solid innings
for Boston.
Adrian Gonzalez added a solo
homer and drove in four runs and
Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits for the
Red Sox, who have won 2-of-3 in the
4-game series, which ends tonight.
Paul Konerko had an RBI single
and walked twice for the White Sox.
Chicago’s Kevin Youkilis went 1-for-4
in his third game against his former
team of 7 1/2 seasons. He was traded
to the White Sox on June 24.
Doubront (10-4) allowed one run
and four hits in six innings with three
walks and two strikeouts. Three reliev-
ers held Chicago hitless in the final
three innings.
Left-hander Pedro Hernandez (0-1)
took the loss in his major-league debut,
giving up eight runs and 12 hits —
three homers — in 4-plus innings, walk-
ing one and striking out two.
INDIANS 10, RAYS 6
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Carlos
Santana hit a 3-run homer during
Cleveland’s 5-run seventh inning.
Shin-Soo Choo and Asdrubal
Cabrera hit 2-out singles off Kyle
Farnsworth (0-2) before Jason Kipnis’
RBI single against Jake McGee tied it
at 4. After Michael Brantley had a run-
scoring single, Santana extended the
lead to 8-4 with his first homer since
May 15.
Kipnis and Santana added run-scor-
ing singles in ninth as the Indians went
ahead 10-5.
Esmil Rogers (1-0) struck out three
and walked one over 1 2/3 scoreless
innings.
Santana walked, Casey Kotchman
was hit by a pitch and both scored on
Jack Hannahan’s 2-out double in the
fifth. Choo cut the deficit to 4-3 with an
RBI single.
ORIOLES 2, TWINS 1
MINNEAPOLIS — Adam Jones hit
a 2-run homer in the first inning against
Francisco Liriano and Baltimore hung
on for the win.
Josh Willingham’s home run in the
fourth was all Minnesota could man-
age against Tommy Hunter (4-4), who
returned to Baltimore’s rotation with a
solid performance that lasted one out
into the eighth inning. Hunter allowed
six hits but no walks to the Twins, who
scored 25 runs over the first two games
of the series and have the second-best
batting average in baseball since June
1. The right-hander struck out just one.
Hunter was the third straight starter
recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to take
the mound for the Orioles, following
Chris Tillman on Monday and Zach
Britton on Tuesday. Jim Johnson post-
ed his 27th save in 29 attempts.
Liriano (3-9) recovered after giving
up Jones’ homer, striking out 10 batters
in six innings.
ROYALS 8, MARINERS 7
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Billy Butler
homered to lead off the bottom of the
ninth inning for Kansas City.
Butler hit a 1-1 pitch from Josh
Kinney (0-1) out to left center for his
18th homer. Butler went 3-for-3 and
walked twice. Greg Holland (4-2)
pitched a perfect ninth for the win.
Lorenzo Cain homered in the fifth
inning with Butler aboard. Cain, who
also singled and scored in the Royals’
3-run second inning, is 10-for-20 in his
6-game hitting streak.
Royals starter Bruce Chen gave
up four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3
innings, walking none and striking out
six. Chen gave up a solo home run to
Kyle Seager in the second and a 2-run
shot to Casper Wells in the fourth.
He has allowed nine home runs in 19
innings over his past four starts.
The Royals led 7-4 after five innings
but the Kansas City bullpen failed to
hold the lead. The Mariners scored
three in the seventh.
MLB CAPSULES
A hodgepodge of items to write about
Seeing this item: about a winning bid
of $253,000 to win a 1920s game bat that
Ty Cobb gave to young Detroit Tigers
teammate Eddie Onslow; got me to doing
some research into the Cobb legacy.
Onslow’s 92-year-old daughter,
Nancy Purviance of Dublin, says Cobb
gave her father the bat as a token of
their friendship and that they remained
friends until Cobb’s death in 1961.
I never knew that Cobb had any
friends from his playing days!
Everything I had ever read was about
how he made a habit of not getting along
with teammates and opponents alike; he
didn’t like a lot of people.
However, when you consider he had
a stern and demanding father (William)
that was accidentally killed by his moth-
er, Amanda (apparently after possible
infidelity that William suspected and
was trying to catch in the act) when Ty
was 18 and not quite yet in the majors, I
imagine that it had a profound impact on
him. In the research I did, he was quoted
as acknowledging that fact.
This — and prevailing cultural values
during the time, such as his racism —
doesn’t give him license to be the way
he was but I think I can “sympathize” a
little bit more.
No question, he had a strong will —
some claimed sadistic — to do anything
he could to win.
I didn’t realize how truly legend-
ary some of his records were: lifetime
average of .367 in 24 years, averaging
.401 in one 4-year span; nine consecu-
tive American League batting titles and
12 overall; hitting at least .320 for 23
straight seasons; and stealing home 54
times. Who steals home anymore?
That was during the notorious dead-
ball and strong-pitching era.
He scored 2,245 runs (second to
Ricky Henderson in 25 seasons) and had
4,191 hits (there is a discrepancy here in
that another site claimed he had two less
hits - but still a lot of them) - second only
to Pete Rose at 4,256 (also in 24 years
but in more games).
To show how times have changed, he
won the Triple Crown in 1909, hitting
.377 with 107 RBIs and nine — yes,
nine! — homers.
Consider the many records he set
upon his retirement — 90, a few still
standing today and likely never to be
broken — and that he even outpolled
luminaries of the game like Babe Ruth,
Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson and
Walter Johnson in the first balloting for
Cooperstown in 1936 (222 out of 226).
A 1942 poll of former major league
managers called Cobb the greatest base-
ball player of all time, including Ruth,
Lou Gehrig and other greats of the first
65-plus years of the game.
His temper and competitive fire —
maniacal, perhaps? — was legendary
as well, though he claimed many of the
things he was accused of — like fil-
ing his spikes to razor sharpness to cut
infielders who blocked his path — he
later denied, after he retired.
He had no issue in trying to intimi-
date an opponent.
He did get into numerous fights with
anyone and everyone that he didn’t like,
even heckling fans, even long after he
hung up the spikes.
According to one source, he also
— and this I didn’t know — practiced
sliding until his legs were raw. He also
engaged in “film” study of pitchers,
probably not something a lot of play-
ers did in the early part of this century,
learning their weaknesses.
He had great speed and knew how to
really use that bat. He worked hard at his
craft in-season and out of season; that’s
a good thing.
He also died a rich man because of
wise investing and haggling with his
bosses.
He also died a lonely man.
It is sad — and telling — that one
of the literally all-time all-timers of the
National Pastime only had four people
from baseball attend his funeral after he
died July 17, 1961, at the age of 74.
By the way, imagine if Ichiro Suzuki
had played his entire professional base-
ball career in the States? He has played
12 seasons here and has 2,526 hits. He
played seven full pro seasons in Japan
(nine overall, starting in 1992 at the age
of 20) and has 1,278 hits. Do the math!
Pete Rose might be in trouble!
In the “I didn’t know it existed”
department:
Jan Sterba, a member of the Czech
Republic’s sprint kayak K4 crew for the
London Olympics, has been banned six
months for doping by the International
Canoe Federation.
He tested positive for a banned stimu-
lant during Olympic qualifying.
The Czech Canoe Federation
announced the ban.
What I didn’t know is that there were
two such organizations!
Ray Allen is taking his 3-point mas-
tery from Beantown to South Florida to
play for the Miami Heat.
He will make $3 million this season
when he could have gotten more from
Boston. In this day and age, you don’t
see that all the time but apparently, the
Heat have gotten it down.
That is not the reason from my writing;
how he will fit in with the defending NBA
champions is not my concern here.
I did not know his son, Walker, was
diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes in 2008.
I guess I — maybe we — sometimes
think that everything goes according to
plan for the rich and famous, that they
don’t have the concerns and problems us
poor schnooks have to deal with daily.
When he made this “Decision”, he
had to keep his son’s condition in mind
as far as setting up the care and support
mechanisms he will need.
Good for you, Ray.
Mr. October, Reggie Jackson, is on
an apology tour for some of his recent
remarks in Sports Illustrated.
Amazing how much things have
changed.
He made a living as a legendary
player for saying what he thought.
Now, he has to be apologetic and
stay away from the club he played for a
number of years and now works for, the
New York Yankees.
For example, he claimed that Alex
Rodriguez’s stats were tainted due to his
admitted use of performance-enhancers.
Seriously? He has to apologize for
that?
Who among us DOESN’T believe
the same thing?
If this is not so, why is there ANY ques-
tion about Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire,
et al getting into Cooperstown? If A-Rod
feels bad, he should; he cheated!
He also apparently didn’t see some
other current Hall-of-Famers as worthy.
OK; that might have gone too far but
— as a HOFer — doesn’t he have some
leeway here to express an opinion?
PC run amok.
I thought the Boise State “Smurf
Turf” field was ugly.
Check out the monstrosity of
Lindenwood University-Belleville’s — a
NAIA institution — new football field.
It’s “unforgettable” all right — it
gives you a headache; it is striped red
(maroon) and gray to represent the
school’s colors. As one commentator
termed it, it looks like a flattened-out
barbershop pole!
Bring back the green!
In the “where do you think you
are?” department:
A $150,000-plus lawsuit (medical
expenses plus pain and suffering) has
been brought by a New Jersey woman
who was struck in the face at a Little
League game.
She is suing the then-11-year-old
catcher who threw the ball!
Elizabeth Lloyd was sitting at a picnic
table near a fenced-in bullpen when she
was hit with the ball thrown by catcher
Matthew Migliaccio, who was warming
up a pitcher when it happened.
A Little League spokesman said the
league’s insurance covers coaches and
players but not spectators.
It’s a baseball game; there are certain
risks you take going to ANY baseball
game and you have to keep your eyes
open. There is only so much a facility
can do to protect spectators.
If this kid was horsing around, which
he says he was not, or he intentionally
did this, it is a different story.
If not, this is ridiculous.
I don’t normally do this but because
I promised my sister-in-law I’d do it and
didn’t get it done (memory isn’t what it
used to be!), here goes.
She is having a garage sale 9 a.m. to 4
p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday
at 1400 South Clay St., Lot 1. Items
include boys clothes newborn to size 14,
junior girls to plus size adult, toys, home
decor, dog kennel, dryer, entertainment
and miscellaneous.

AGRIBUSINESS
Three Delphos FFA
members recently embarked
on a journey to FFA Camp
Muskingum. Their trip
would take them to Carroll
County, 4 1/2 hours from
Delphos, to the home of
FFA Camp.
The week-long session
that the members attended
was packed full of leader-
ship, team building, com-
munication, and recreational
activities. The members had
the opportunity to meet and
visit with this year’s State
FFA Officer Team, relax
and enjoy different aspects
of camp, and most impor-
tantly create friendships
with close to 300 other FFA
members from across the
state.
During the week,
Delphos FFA members par-
ticipated in four team-build-
ing and problem solving
based workshops presented
by the State FFA Officers.
They participated in various
contests and tournaments to
earn points for their camp
chapters. They took advan-
tage of the opportunity to
go swimming, kayaking,
canoeing, and motor boat-
ing on Leesville Lake.
The experience of being
surrounded by new people
allowed our members to
share activities and experi-
ences that they have gained
with the Delphos FFA and
learn about other activities
that they could implement
when they arrive at home.
FFA Camp has been
established since 1942 and
during the five weeks that
the camp is open to FFA
members, more than 1,000
of them will attend. The life
skills that are gained at camp
come in a different form
than those that are usually
presented in the classroom
because of the relaxed camp
environment. The experi-
ence has allowed Delphos
FFA members to experience
personal growth and gain
skills that are necessary for
a successful future.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES,
England — Adam Scott had
a chance at history.
He gladly settled for tying
a course record.
Scott equaled the lowest
British Open score at Royal
Lytham & St. Annes, taking
advantage of prime scoring
conditions to rip off eight bird-
ies on the way to a 6-under 64
in the opening round today.
The 31-year-old Australian
bounced back from an early
bogey with a dazzling display
— his drives accurate, his
irons precise, his long putter
reliable. When Scott arrived
at the 17th hole, his score
was at 7 under, putting him in
position to tie the record for
lowest score in the Open or
any other major (63), or even
break the hallowed mark with
one more birdie.
Scott settled for par at the
17th, then took a bogey on
the final hole after an errant
tee shot into the thick rough.
Still, he went to the clubhouse
having tied the 64 that Tom
Lehman shot at Lytham in
1996.
Scott had never shot bet-
ter than 68 in 12 previous
Opens.
Tiger Woods spent some
time atop the leaderboard,
a once-familiar sight at the
major championships. He
played the first 14 holes at 4
under, finally stumbling after
he sprayed his tee shot at the
15th into the thick rough. He
needed two whacks to get out
and wound up taking bogey.
Still, he finished with a 67
to position himself nicely for
a run at his 15th major cham-
pionship, looking to break a
drought in the biggest tourna-
ments that goes back to the
2008 U.S. Open.
The conditions couldn’t
have been any better for going
low.
An early morning sprin-
kle gave way to dry weather,
the sun making an appear-
ance through the low-hang-
ing clouds. There was hardly
any breeze blowing in off the
nearby Irish Sea, the flags
atop the 18th grandstand
barely rippling.
A host of major champions
took advantage of a course ripe
for the taking. Paul Lawrie,
who won a British Open best
remembered for Jean Van de
Velde’s historic meltown on
the 72nd hole, opened with
a surprising 65. Masters win-
ners Zach Johnson (65) and
Bubba Watson (67) were right
in the thick of things. So too
were U.S. Open champions
Ernie Els (67) and Graeme
McDowell (67).
Not everyone took advan-
tage of the benign weather.
Defending Open champion
Darren Clarke struggled to a
76. Lee Westwood, the English
favorite and best player without
a major title, got off to a slug-
gish start with a 73.
The wind was expected
to pick up in the afternoon
and make things tougher for
that side of the draw, which
included world No. 1 Luke
Donald, Phil Mickelson and
Rory McIlroy. But the dry
weather was largely projected
to last through the weekend.
The last guy to qualify for
the tournament, India’s Jeev
Milkha Singh, made a 25-foot
birdie putt at the opening
hole but faded a bit down the
stretch to finish with an even-
par 70. He earned his spot by
winning the Scottish Open
last weekend.
Unheralded American
James Driscoll, playing this
major for only the second
time, made an early splash
by rolling in a 50-foot birdie
putt across the first green. But
Lytham bit back — big time;
a 76.
Royal Lytham is the short-
est course on the Open rota-
tion over the last decade.
Accuracy off the tee was at a
premium on a layout that fea-
tured 206 bunkers, more than
any other club in the rotation.
Also, the persistent rain left
the rough even thicker than
usual.
Scott ties course record
with 64 at British Open

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
FRIDAY, JULY 20, 2012
The seeds you’ve sown
by doing good deeds in the
past are likely to take root
and blossom in the year
ahead. A number of people
whom you went out of
your way to help will be
paying you back in greater
measure.
CANCER (June
21-July 22) -- Strive to
maintain strong, friendly
relations with everyone,
including the in-laws.
Someone you know is
likely to put you on track
to something that could be
materially beneficial.
LEO (July 23-Aug.
22) -- Solutions to problems
that have everyone else
baffled will be very evident
and clear to you. Don’t
hesitate to speak up when
you believe you have the
answers others are seeking.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-
Sept. 22) -- Old friends are
likely to be more fortunate
for you than usual, so stick
with them, especially those
who share an interest with
you in the world of finance
or commerce.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23) -- The most enjoyable
time you’re likely to have
will be sharing your day
with people whom you
haven’t seen for a while.
A number of good things
could come from such a
reunion.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 22) -- Your objectives
will be more easily
achieved if you keep your
intentions to yourself -- the
fewer people who know
about them, the better.
This includes your close
buddies.
S A G I T TA R I U S
(Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Even
if you’re doubtful of the
merits of your suggestions,
associates who believe
in them will take it upon
themselves to try out your
ideas and verify their
value.
CAPRICORN (Dec.
22-Jan. 19) -- Unless
you are confronted by a
challenge, your tenacity
and determination may
never surface. If they do,
however, even the blase
will be impressed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 19) -- Don’t hesitate
to make a critical decision,
because you already have
the answer within you. All
you have to do is allow
what you’ve learned from
experience to guide you.
PISCES (Feb.
20-March 20) -- By all
means, show a willingness to
be helpful to those to whom
you’re obligated. Don’t
miss any opportunities to
reciprocate and express
your appreciation.
ARIES (March
21-April 19) -- Although
it might inconvenience you
to do so, you’ll still come
through and honor all of
your commitments, earning
you the respect of your
friends and associates.
TAURUS (April 20-
May 20) -- Even if you are
the catalyst for some fun
activities, you still might
not feel gratified or fulfilled
unless you first get involved
in something constructive.
GEMINI (May 21-
June 20) -- Because your
custodial instincts are
seeking expression, they
are likely to impel you to
inoffensively step in and
manage a situation that is
giving others fits, satisfying
everybody.

Daughter’s self-concept damaged
Dear Annie: My college-
age daughter is very hard on
herself. “Sharyn” is a beauti-
ful, intelligent and wonder-
ful person at heart, but she
cannot see it, even though
everyone else does.
For 12 years, Sharyn has
been in some form of thera-
py. She has damaged herself,
starved herself and
even run away. As
a child, she was
“different,” and so
she was badly bul-
lied and had unre-
liable friends who
briefly entered her
life and left sudden-
ly. After years of
rejection and fail-
ure to achieve her
goals, she began to
isolate herself and
give up. Much of
her time was spent alone and
lonely. It was unbearably
painful to stand by and watch
my child undeservingly suf-
fer like this.
Sharyn seemed to make
progress once she started
college. She’s maintained a
3.5 GPA, developed incred-
ible artistic and writing abil-
ities, found a summer job
and will be living with her
friends this coming year.
However, she still believes
no one really likes her. She
says, “Everyone wants me
gone,” and “Everyone thinks
I’m stupid, lazy, weird and
mean.” She has many great
things going for her now,
but she still allows
her negativity to
control her life. She
has even said to me,
“You hate me,” and
“I’m a bad daugh-
ter.” I have over-
heard her yelling
both hurtful and
hateful comments
to herself while she
looks in the mirror.
I tell Sharyn
repeatedly that I
love her and am
proud of her, but she accuses
me of lying. I’m frustrated
and heartbroken that she
believes these things when
she has come so far. What
else can I possibly do to help
my daughter understand that
she is a wonderful person
who deserves happiness? --
Peace Bound Parent
Dear Parent: You are
doing the best you can with
your bedrock reassurances.
Sharyn’s conception of her-
self is so distorted and nega-
tive that she assumes your
opinion is too biased to count.
Her accusations are a way to
test your commitment. These
issues are best addressed in
therapy. Since she seems to
be making progress, albeit
slowly, please continue to
provide calm, loving support.
You also can get some thera-
py on your own and develop
some coping strategies.
Dear Annie: I’ve been
dating “Don” for eight
months. When I met him, I
didn’t realize he had been
seeing a woman for two
years. Apparently, they had
an understanding that if
someone else came along,
it would be OK to break up
because they live three hours
apart. They still communi-
cate on Facebook.
This girlfriend’s family
owns some property that is
pretty much in Don’s back-
yard. She stays at a cabin
on the property a few times
a year. It makes me really
uncomfortable. But when I
talk to Don about her, he
says, “You have nothing to
worry about.” But there have
been a few nights when he’s
called her name in his sleep.
He also once told me that if
he wanted her back, all he
had to do was call her.
Don wants me to move
in with him, but I can’t. His
relationship with the other
woman eats at me all the
time. What do I do? -- On
the Rebound
Dear Rebound: You
don’t completely trust Don,
partly because he has given
you the impression that this
woman is always available to
him. Trust is the bedrock of
any relationship. If it doesn’t
exist with Don, there won’t
be a happy future for the
two of you, and you should
move on.
Dear Annie: A reader
asked why there wasn’t a
Viagra-type pill for women,
and your response implied
that Viagra restores desire.
This simply is not the case.
Viagra and other medica-
tions like it allow the body to
carry through on the desires
of the heart and mind. In the
absence of desire, these med-
ications do nothing except
possibly give a confidence
boost. -- My Two Cents

Americans on no-fly list allowed to learn to fly
By EILEEN SULLIVAN
Associated Press
WASHINGTON — U.S. citizens who are
on the government’s list of people banned
from flying because they’re considered terror
threats are not prevented from learning how
to fly in schools around the country, accord-
ing to government regulations.
Such a person may have to drive across the
country to learn how to fly a plane because he
or she would likely be stopped from boarding
a commercial airliner. But the security checks
put in place after the 9/11 attacks will not
keep the person from receiving pilot training.
The security loophole was raised dur-
ing a hearing Wednesday to examine the
Homeland Security Department’s programs
to screen foreigners who want to attend
flight schools in the U.S. Some of the 9/11
hijackers were able to learn to fly in the
U.S. while living in the country illegally.
The government put in several more layers
of security after the attacks, and foreigners
now receive criminal background checks
and are screened against terror watch lists
before they are allowed to begin training.
U.S. citizens, however, are not subject to the
same scrutiny.
“I was stunned. That just caught me com-
pletely off guard, and I’m pretty angry about
it,” Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala., said after the
hearing. “Everybody should be concerned.”
The government has other screening
requirements for someone to receive a pilot’s
license or other certificate to fly a plane
which include criminal background checks
and screening against terror watch lists. But
Rogers said if the government doesn’t want
someone on an airplane because he or she is
a terror threat, there’s no reason why that per-
son should be allowed to learn how to fly.
There are about 500 U.S. citizens on the
no-fly list, according to an intelligence offi-
cial speaking on condition of anonymity to
discuss the sensitive numbers.
Kerwin Wilson, the Transportation
Security Administration official who over-
sees the flight school screening program, said
he did not know whether an American on the
no-fly list has actually undergone flight train-
ing in the U.S. in the past 10 years.
“Keep in mind, the way the program is set
up, there’s layered security in place,” Wilson
said, adding that once someone receives
a flight certificate, he or she is screened
against other criminal and terrorism databases
regularly. Wilson also cautioned that putting
U.S. citizens through these additional security
checks could cost more money.
This did not allay the concerns of lawmak-
ers.
Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., and
the top Democrat on the House Homeland
Security committee, said the only thing the
government does not do for a U.S. citizen on
the no-fly list is give him or her a license to
fly a plane.
“We’ve trained them to do it. That’s my
concern,” Thompson said.
Rogers, chairman of the subcommittee
that held Wednesday’s hearing, said he plans
to raise this with the head of the TSA, and if
the agency can’t fix the problem, he plans to
introduce legislation that would.
The TSA said it does not have the author-
ity to do background checks on U.S. citizens
who want to train at flight schools unless
the person already has a certificate from the
Federal Aviation Administration.
“In compliance with its statutory author-
ity, TSA conducts background checks for
foreign flight school applicants seeking train-
ing at FAA certified flight instruction schools
and vets FAA certified individuals on a
continuous basis,” TSA spokesman David
Castelveter said.
As it is, the TSA’s program to screen
foreigners has its own security loopholes,
according to the Government Accountability
Office, a congressional watchdog agency.
The TSA screening program does not
automatically determine whether a prospec-
tive flight student is in the U.S. legally, said
Stephen Lord, who heads GAO’s homeland
security and justice programs. In 2010, law
enforcement investigated a flight school in
the Boston area and found that eight people
at the school approved for flight training by
TSA were in the country illegally, and 17
more had stayed in the country longer than
they were allowed, Lord told lawmakers. The
owner of the flight school was in the country
illegally as well.
The TSA and Immigration and Customs
Enforcement have agreed to share more infor-
mation with each other, officials from those
agencies said.
Teens who lost kin to terror unite at Mass. camp
By BRIDGET MURPHY
Associated Press
NEWBURY, Mass. — On a window-
sill at a Massachusetts boarding school,
a white candle burned in memory of
a man who died half a world away in
Argentina.
The man’s daughter, Astrid Malamud,
was a toddler when it happened.
On Wednesday, 18 years later,
Malamud, who barely remembers her
father’s face, was far from home as she
marked the anniversary of his death in
their homeland’s bloodiest-ever terrorist
attack. But the 20-year-old Argentine
university student was still close to
people who understood her loss.
Beside Malamud’s candle, a second
wick burned to commemorate another
of the 85 victims of the July 18, 1994,
bombing at the Argentine Israeli Mutual
Association in Buenos Aires. That man’s
daughter also was nearby, as were more
than 70 other teenagers and young adults
who lost family members to terrorism.
They came from the United States
and 15 other countries, gathering at
Governor’s Academy, about 30 miles
north of Boston, for a summer camp
known as Project Common Bond.
The program, now in its fifth year, is
part of the New York-based nonprofit
Tuesday’s Children, which helps fami-
lies of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001,
terrorist attacks.
The nonprofit’s executive director,
Terry Sears, said Wednesday that the
camp is a way for the children of Sept.
11 victims to reach out to children
around the world who’ve suffered simi-
lar losses. She and other organizers said
it’s a chance for participants to heal and
to work on becoming the world’s next
generation of peacemakers.
The curriculum design comes in part
from a mediation and negotiation pro-
gram at Harvard Law School. It’s meant
to teach conflict resolution and leader-
ship skills that campers can take home
to do projects that make a difference in
their communities.
Campers, ranging from 15 to 20
years old and some attending with the
help of scholarship money, said it’s also
a chance to be around others their age
who understand them. As they sat talk-
ing Wednesday below the flags of their
countries, each had a story of a child-
hood that changed because of a loved
one who was lost.
“I think you get independent sooner
and you grow up faster because you
need to understand things little kids
don’t understand,” Malamud said later.
“... I wish we all weren’t here. If I could
take my flag off of there, I would. Or
any flag.”
For 19-year-old camper Farah
Sarrawi, a Palestinian, the program is
a chance to make friends with Israelis.
That was something she never expected
could happen, she said, after she saw her
father die in 2001 when Israeli soldiers
shot him on the balcony of the family’s
home.
“At first, it was hard,” Sarrawi said.
“But I look at them now as humans ...
and I believe that in every country we’ve
got some crazy people that make that
conflict.”
Sarrawi said she grew up wishing
that her father, who used to spin her on
the dance floor, was still with her. She
said she can’t imagine that someday she
will get married and not have him there
to see it.
Detroit bomb hoax puts
stadium safety in spotlight
By COREY WILLIAMS
Associated Press
DETROIT — As they watched a Detroit Tigers baseball game,
40,000 sports fans were unaware that dozens of police, security
guards and federal agents were swiftly searching the stadium for
a possible bomb after someone phoned in a threat to 911.
Authorities made no announcement over the public address
system. Ushers said nothing to the crowd.
Jason Miller, a suburban Detroit rabbi, left the game against
the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night and didn’t learn about
the threat until the following day.
“I immediately started thinking, ‘What if?”’ he said. “What if
they had to evacuate?”
Miller’s concerns highlighted a vexing question for organizers
of major public events: Should large crowds be informed about
unconfirmed threats to their safety? Or is better to keep the matter
quiet until investigators can check into it?
If authorities “evacuate every time there is a bomb threat,
there will be a lot of empty places,” said Steve Layne of Layne
Consultants International, a Denver-based firm that specializes in
the protection of libraries, museums and other cultural institutions
and public facilities.
“You can’t just pull a fire alarm and yell run. An evacuation
in the middle of a ball game does cause some problems. You’re
running the risk of causing injuries.”
The threat at Comerica Park was the third bomb threat to a
Detroit landmark in less than a week. On Monday, someone
claimed to have placed a bomb on the Ambassador Bridge linking
Detroit with Windsor, Ontario, in Canada.
And on July 12, a similar threat forced the closing of the
Detroit Windsor international tunnel beneath the river. In each
case, emergency procedures went off without a hitch, and no
bombs were found.
But Miller wasn’t satisfied, saying fans “had a right to know
what happened.”
He said the park or the Tigers “could have in a very safe calm
manner informed the crowd, if it was indeed a serious threat.”
After the other threats, the tunnel and bridge were cleared of
traffic while police and bomb-sniffing dogs searched for explo-
sives.
In Detroit, police followed the stadium’s security protocols,
and a decision was made not to evacuate, said Donald Johnson, an
inspector in the police department’s Homeland Security unit.
“We don’t make a decision to evacuate unless an actual device
is found,” Johnson said. “We don’t panic. We go step by step. The
thought was to find out what we actually had.”
In a statement, the Tigers insisted the safety of fans, employees
and players was the primary concern.
The team “worked closely and collaboratively with law
enforcement officials and followed firmly established protocols,”
spokesman Ron Colangelo said.
The goal is not to create a panic, according to Lou Marciani,
director of the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety at the
University of Southern Mississippi at Hattiesburg.
Warrants: Slain Marine’s wife targeted by sex ring
City’s fscal emergency vote speeds bankruptcy
Arizona sheriff
faces profling
allegations at trial
By JULIE WATSON and
ELLIOT SPAGAT

SAN DIEGO — One of
three suspects charged with
murdering a Marine’s wife said
she strangled the victim, fearing
she would upend a kinky sex
ring by seducing her “Master,”
according to search warrants
unsealed Wednesday.
The comments suggest jeal-
ousy was a possible motive
in the killing of 22-year-
old Brittany Killgore, whose
body was found in April near
a Southern California lake.
A judge ordered the warrants
unsealed at the request of news
organizations including The
Associated Press.
Jessica Lopez wrote in
a seven-page letter that she
believed Killgore was trying to
come between her, Louis Ray
Perez and Dorothy Maraglino,
who lived together at a home in
Fallbrook, north of San Diego.
Lopez, who calls Perez her
“Master,” shoulders full blame
for the killing.
Detectives found what they
said looked like a “sex room/
dungeon” in the Fallbrook home,
with “several bondage type
apparatuses; toys and tools.”
Lopez said that she acted
after the victim told her that she
had a “whole night planned”
with Perez, a Marine who is also
charged with the murder along
with Maraglino. All three have
pleaded not guilty to murder.
Lopez, 25, said she had been
burned before in a relationship
and knew what she had to do
when Killgore entered their
Fallbrook home. Lopez said she
shot the victim with a stun gun,
wrapped a rope around a neck,
buried her face in a pillow and
strangled her.
“She barely moved but she
just wouldn’t die, the miserable
whore,” the letter said.
Lopez said she made “a few
attempts to chop her up” with
Perez’s power tools and doused
Killgore’s body in bleach to get
rid of evidence before dump-
ing the nude body near Lake
Skinner, near Riverside.
The documents give no
indication that Killgore knew
about the sex ring and prosecu-
tors call her an innocent victim.
Detectives said she accepted
Perez’s invitation to a San
Diego dinner cruise after Perez
helped her move that afternoon.
The warrants do not say how
Killgore met the suspects.
Sloan Ostbye, Lopez’s
attorney, didn’t immediately
respond to a phone message
Wednesday. She joined the San
Diego County district attorney’s
office in an appeal to keep the
documents sealed, calling much
of her client’s letter “false or at
least misleading and possibly
delusional.”
Killgore was last seen April
13 in a borrowed purple evening
gown, three days after she filed
for divorce from Lance Cpl.
Cory Killgore, who was serving
in Afghanistan at the time. The
documents say her body was
found with neck injuries con-
sistent with strangulation and
marks on her wrist and leg that
suggested someone tried to use
a saw or other tool to dismem-
ber her.
In her letter, Lopez called
Perez the “Master” and told
police he wasn’t responsible for
the killing. Detectives found it
in a San Diego hotel where
Lopez was discovered with
self-inflicted cuts four days
after Killgore disappeared.
The handwritten letter
— below a mirror that was
scrawled with the word “PIGS
READ THIS” — accused
police of “complete incompe-
tence.” It is laced with profanity
and poor punctuation.
“Master I am so sorry I
dragged you into this,” it reads.
“I thought I was defending the
family and it would be simple
like Dexter (a serial killer in a
television show). To Mistress
I have always lived to be your
slave & pet I’m sorry my last
act is to leave this world with-
out permission but I cannot bear
your grief & my guilt at seeing
Master go through this from my
choice.”
The letter says where the
body was dumped, telling police
they would likely find handcuff
marks on the wrists. It says
the handcuffs and a knife were
disposed at a beach restroom in
Oceanside.
Three days after Killgore
vanished, detectives searched
Perez’s mud-caked Ford
Explorer and found a plastic bag
with a stun gun, latex gloves and
Killgore’s blood. Perez’s DNA
was found on the stun gun.
SAN BERNARDINO,
Calif. (AP) — San Bernardino
declared a fiscal emergency
Wednesday night, allowing
the city to avoid a lengthy
mediation process and head
straight to federal bankruptcy
court.
The declaration comes after
the city announced last week
that it would seek Chapter 9
protection, making it the third
California city in recent weeks
to make the rare move.
The City Council voted
5-2 to declare the emergency
and file for bankruptcy protec-
tion amid a dire cash crunch
that has officials worried San
Bernardino can’t meet payroll
in August.
The vote was followed by
another authorizing the city
attorney to file for bankruptcy,
but it was not clear when the
planned filing would come.
Councilmen Chas Kelley
and John Valdivia dissented
on both votes.
Councilman Fred Shorett,
who voted against bankruptcy
last week, reversed his posi-
tion Wednesday night and
approved both moves.
“The horse is out of the
barn — the whole world
knows we’re insolvent,”
Shorett said, according to the
San Bernardino Sun. “I will be
supporting going forward with
Chapter 9 and fiscal emer-
gency.”
The vote could make the
city of 210,000 people the
third in California to seek
bankruptcy protection since
last month, following Stockton
and Mammoth Lakes.
The city is facing a $45.8
million budget shortfall this
year.
Last week’s announcement
of the bankruptcy plan has fur-
ther stressed San Bernardino’s
finances by prompting a dozen
employees to put in for retire-
ment with hopes of cashing
out accrued vacation and sick
time, and it has spurred ven-
dors to demand cash instead
of credit, said Gwendolyn
Waters, a spokeswoman for
the city manager’s office.
The debate over bank-
ruptcy in San Bernardino has
also raised questions about the
city’s financial management.
Last week, City Attorney
James Penman told the public
that 13 of the last 16 budgets
presented to the city council
had been falsified, masking
the city’s deficit. The finance
director, who is new to the
job, said officials had bor-
rowed cash from restricted
funds to cover payments, and
eventually ran out of money to
pay the funds back.
Officials say the hous-
ing crisis — which walloped
property and sales tax rev-
enues — and the loss of state
redevelopment funds took a
toll on the city’s budget. San
Bernardino is located about 60
miles east of Los Angeles.

PHOENIX — For six years,
the self-proclaimed toughest
sheriff in America has vehe-
mently denied allegations that
his deputies racially profile
Latinos in his trademark immi-
gration patrols.
Joe Arpaio would dismiss
his critics in his signature brash
style at countless news confer-
ences and in numerous appear-
ances on television.
Now, the sheriff in
Arizona’s most populous
county will have to convince
a federal judge who is presid-
ing over a lawsuit that heads to
trial today and is expected to
last until early August.
The plaintiffs say Arpaio’s
officers based some traffic
stops on the race of Hispanics
who were in vehicles, had no
probable cause to pull them
over and made the stops so
they could inquire about their
immigration status.
“He is not free to say
whatever he wants,” said
Dan Pochoda, a lawyer for
the American Civil Liberties
Union of Arizona, one of the
groups that has pushed the
lawsuit against Arpaio.
“He will be called as a wit-
ness in our case,” Pochoda
said. “He will not have control
over the flow of information,
and he is not the final arbiter.”
The plaintiffs aren’t seeking
money damages and instead
are seeking a declaration that
Arpaio’s office racially pro-
files and an order that requires
it to make changes to prevent
what they said is discrimina-
tory policing.
If Arpaio loses the civil
case, he won’t face jail time
or fines.
Arpaio declined to com-
ment, and his lead attorney,
Tim Casey, didn’t return a call
seeking comment Wednesday.
But at a late June hearing,
Casey said the sheriff wanted
the trial so he could prove his
critics wrong and remove the
stigma that the racial profiling
allegation carries. “What we
want is resolution,” Casey said.
The lawsuit marks the
first case in which the sher-
iff’s office has been accused
of systematically racially pro-
filing Latinos and will serve
as a bellwether for a similar
yet broader civil rights lawsuit
filed against Arpaio in May
by the U.S. Department of
Justice.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Muslims in a Tennessee congrega-
tion prepared today for the holy month of Ramadan a day after a
federal judge ruled they have a right to occupy their newly-built
mosque, overruling a county judge’s order that was keeping
them out.
The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro sued Rutherford County
on Wednesday and asked U.S. District Judge Todd Campbell for
an emergency order to let worshippers into the building before
the holy month of Ramadan starts at sundown today.
Federal prosecutors also filed a similar lawsuit.
The future of the mosque had been in question since May,
when a local judge overturned the county’s approval of the
mosque construction. This month, he ordered the county not to
issue an occupancy permit for the 12,000-square-foot building.
Campbell ordered the county to move ahead on approving the
mosque for use, although it wasn’t immediately clear if that could
happen by today. Final inspection of the building is required.
The contentious fight over the mosque stems from a 2010
lawsuit filed by a group of residents who made repeated claims
that Islam was not a real religion and that local Muslims
intended to overthrow the U.S. Constitution in favor of Islamic
religious law.
Those claims were dismissed, but opponents won with a
ruling that overturned the approval to build the mosque on the
grounds that county didn’t give adequate public notice of the
meeting.
Federal judge trumps county bias
