Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869
Monday, July 23, 2012
the horrific crimes of Sandusky and the cover-up by Paterno and others at the university, including former Penn State President Graham Spanier and athletic director Tim Curley. The investigation headed by former FBI Director Louis Freeh said that Penn State officials kept what they knew from police and other authorities for years, enabling the abuse to go on. There had been calls across the nation for Penn State to receive the “death penalty,” and Emmert had not ruled out that possibility as late as last week — though Penn State did not fit the criteria for it. That punishment is for teams that commit a major violation while already being sanctioned. Penn State has already agreed to not fight the sanctions. Emmert said the university and the NCAA have signed a consent decree, essentially a pact signing off on the penalties.

Penn State fined $60M, wins vacated from ’98-11
By TOM COYNE and RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA slammed Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal today with an unprecedented series of penalties, including a $60 million fine and the loss of all the school’s victories from 1998-2011, knocking Joe Paterno from his spot as major college football’s winningest coach. Other sanctions include a four-year ban on postseason games that will prevent Penn State from playing for the Big Ten title, the loss of 20 scholarships per year over four years and five years’ probation. The NCAA also said that any current or incoming football players are free to immediately transfer and compete at another school. NCAA President Mark Emmert announced the staggering sanctions at a news conference in Indianapolis. Though the NCAA stopped short of imposing the “death penalty” — shutting down the Nittany Lions’ program completely – the punishment is so severe, it’s more like a slow-death penalty. Sandusky, a former Penn State defensive coordinator, was found guilty in June of sexually abusing young boys, sometimes on campus. An investigation commissioned by the school and released July 12 found that Paterno, who died in January, and several other top officials at Penn State stayed quiet for years about accusations against Sandusky. Emmert fast-tracked penalties rather than go through the usual circuitous series of investigations and hearings. The NCAA said the $60 million is equivalent to the annual gross revenue of the football program. The money must be paid into an endowment for external programs preventing child sexual abuse or assisting victims and may not be used to fund such programs at Penn State. “Football will never again be placed ahead of educating, nurturing and protecting young people,” Emmert said. By vacating 112 Penn State victories over a 14-year period, the sanctions cost Paterno 111 wins. Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden will now hold the top spot in the NCAA record book with 377. Paterno, who was fired days after Sandusky was charged, will be credited with 298 wins. The scholarship reductions mean that Penn State’s roster will be capped at 65 scholarship players within a couple of seasons. The normal scholarship limit for major college football programs is 85. Playing with 20 less is crippling to a program that tries to compete at the highest level of the sport. Emmert had earlier said he had “never seen anything as egregious” as

Syria says it will use chemical weapons if attacked
By PAUL SCHEMM and BEN HUBBARD Associated Press BEIRUT — The Syrian regime threatened today to use its chemical and biological weapons in case of a foreign attack, in its first ever acknowledgement that it possesses weapons of mass destruction. Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi stressed, however, that Damascus would not use its unconventional arms against its own citizens. The announcement comes as Syria faces international isolation, a tenacious rebellion that has left at least 19,000 people dead and threats by Israel to attack to prevent such weapons from falling into rebel hands. Syria’s decision to reveal the long suspected existence of its chemical weapons suggests a desperate regime deeply shaken by an increasingly bold revolt that has scored a string of successes in the past week, including a stunning bomb attack that killed four highlevel security officials, the capture of several border crossings and sustained offensives on the regime strongholds of Damascus and Aleppo. “No chemical or biological weapons will ever be used, and I repeat, will never be used, during the crisis in Syria no matter what the developments inside Syria,” Makdissi said in news conference broadcast on Syrian state TV. “All of these types of weapons are in storBy MICHAEL TARM Associated Press age and under security and the direct supervision of the Syrian armed forces and will never be used unless Syria is exposed to external aggression.” While the statement Makdissi read out promised not to use the weapons against the Syrian people, he later noted that Damascus is not facing an internal enemy in the rebellion, which the regime has described as being funded from abroad and driven by foreign extremists. He added that there was a foreign political and media campaign “that seeks to justify and prepare international public opinion for military intervention under the false pretense of weapons of mass destruction.” Syria is believed to have nerve agents as well as mustard gas, Scud missiles capable of delivering these lethal chemicals and a variety of advanced conventional arms, including anti-tank rockets and late-model portable antiaircraft missiles. Israel has said it fears that chaos following Assad’s fall could allow the Jewish state’s enemies to access Syria’s chemical weapons, and has not ruled out military intervention to prevent this from happening. A senior U.S. intelligence official said Friday the Syrians have moved chemical weapons material from the country’s north, where the fighting was fiercest, apparently to both secure it, and to consolidate it, which U.S. officials considered a respon-

Jury selection to start in Drew Peterson trial
CHICAGO — Jury selection is to begin today in Drew Peterson’s long-delayed murder trial, where prosecutors want the former suburban Chicago police officer’s wives — one he’s charged with slaying and another who has disappeared — to effectively testify from their graves through friends and relatives about his threatening to kill them. Those picked for the jury are likely to hear witnesses describe statements that Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio, and his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, allegedly made. Such hearsay is usually barred. However, an appellate court ruled jurors can hear them. Peterson, 58, is charged with killing Savio in 2004. Her body was found in a dry bathtub in her home, her hair soaked with blood. The exBolingbrook police sergeant is also a suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson. A judge will vet wouldbe jurors starting today. A 200-person jury has been waiting three years for a trial to get under way. It was put off because of appellate court battles over the Savio and Stacy Peterson statements. “I’ve never heard of anything comparable to this — a jury pool waiting around for so long knowing what case they’re going to be in and the reliance on hearsay,” said Gal Pissetzky, a Chicago defense lawyer with no link to the case. “It’s all very unusual.” The legal saga surrounding Peterson and whether he used his status as a police officer to try to get away with murder has attracted national attention. Rob Lowe portrayed Peterson in a 2011 TV movie, “Drew Peterson: Untouchable.” Vetting would-be jurors typically takes a few days, but extra time is sometimes required in high-profile cases to weed out those who come in with well-formed opinions. Opening statements at Peterson’s trial in Joliet are slated for next Tuesday. The defense raised concern some prospective jurors may have violated orders to avoid all news about Peterson. One question Will County Judge Edward Burmila is likely to ask is whether they saw the movie. Pissetzky wonders if those in the jury pool succumbed

But there has also been a disturbing rise in activity at the installations, so the U.S. intelligence community is intensifying its monitoring efforts to track the weapons and try to figure out whether the Syrians are trying to use them, the official said on condition of anonymity to discuss the still-evolving investigation. Makdissi did not discuss last week’s bombing claimed by the rebels that killed four top Syrian security officials, but assured journalists that the situation was under control, despite reports of clashes throughout the country and especially in the major cities of Aleppo and the capital Damascus. “Yes, there were clashes on certain streets in certain neighborhoods, but the security situation is now much better. Everyone is feeling reassured,” he said. “We are not happy about this, but this is an emergency situation and it will not last more than a day or two and the situation will return to normal.” Security forces appeared to show more government control in videos posted online by activists today. Some of the clips show Syrian militia sweeping through Damascus neighborhoods once held by rebels, kicking down doors and searching houses in mop up operations against the fighters that had managed to hold parts of the capital for much of last week.

Couple, pipeline firm settle over explosion
GLOUSTER (AP) — A rural southern Ohio couple says it has settled with Houstonbased Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. over a November gas line explosion that destroyed four structures, including the couple’s home. John and Kathy Sayers, of Morgan County, told The Athens Messenger for an article Sunday that executives of the firm improved terms of the deal after viewing videotaped footage of the damage. John Sayers said details are protected under a confidentiality agreement. Engineers say landslides and a crack in a pipeline weld caused the natural gas line explosion that destroyed three houses and a barn. The Sayerses’ house was reduced to a few bricks and a partial foundation after a 36-inch diameter pipeline exploded about 50 feet away.
Few Ohio homeowners opting for foreclosure help
DAYTON (AP) — Few eligible Ohio homeowners are having their foreclosure cases reviewed for free even though they might receive up to $125,000 if lenders wrongfully caused them financial harm. The reviews are to determine if borrowers suffered financial harm due to errors, misrepresentations, or other deficiencies in the foreclosure process, the Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/ LDBDmM) reported. Lenders must compensate them for such injuries. Mortgage lenders required to offer borrowers the independent foreclosure review sent notification letters to about 140,700 eligible Ohioans who faced foreclosure in 2009 and 2010. But a report by the federal Office of the Comptroller of the Currency says only 6,000 Ohioans had requested reviews as of May 31. The review request deadline is Sept. 30. Nationally, more than four million people were mailed letters last year. As of June, the response rate was 5 percent, or about 200,000 peoBy MARK CURNUTTE The Cincinnati Enquirer ple, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office. The review resulted from consent orders issued against 14 lenders in April 2011 by the Federal Reserve and Comptroller of the Currency. The orders require lenders to use third parties to do the reviews requested by borrowers. To qualify, homeowners had to have a loan serviced by one of the 14 lenders and had foreclosure action against their property in the two-year period. The lenders include Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo among others. Harmed borrowers could receive cash payment and a correction to their credit report. They also could receive payment for lost equity, reimbursements for related out-of-pocket costs, and other types of remediation. Borrowers could potentially receive $1,000 if the lender never solicited a loan modification, $2,500 to $15,000 if a loan modification was denied in error, or up to $125,000 if the borrower was not in default when the foreclosure started, according to the
Ohio museum honors aviation
PORT CLINTON (AP) — Officials behind a new aviation museum in northern Ohio say it will give modern-day visitors the feel of different era, a throwback to the growing interest in aviation between World War I and World War II. The 23,000-square-foot Liberty Aviation Museum near Port Clinton opened with a ribbon-cutting Friday at the Erie-Ottawa Regional Airport, and museum CEO Ed Patrick promised its collection will grow and improve, the Port Clinton News Herald reported. It goes down to the details, with art deco fixtures and chrome accents to complement the old planes and vehicles from the World War II era, as well as a vintage diner that was shipped from Pennsylvania, and restored to working order. The museum will have traditional glass display cases full of memorabilia, but organizers said some of the sights will be ever-changing.
At 35, oldest Cincinnati soup kitchen still timely
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Rev. Tom Bokenkotter visited Dorothy Day’s House of Hospitality on the Lower East Side during a visit to New York in 1975. “I had soup at the kitchen. It was informal and relaxed. People felt at home,” said Bokenkotter, now 87, who wondered if there was a soup kitchen back in his hometown, where he taught at St. Gregory Seminary and Xavier University. The only one he could find in Cincinnati tied the meal to a mandatory religious service. So, he recruited friends, and, with just $700 in the bank, started Over-the-Rhine Kitchen, which is based on Day’s model and recognized today as Cincinnati’s oldest soup kitchen. Closing in on almost 2 million meals served since 1997, Over-the-Rhine Kitchen is marking its 35th anniversary. Yet beyond its birthday celebration, Over-The-Rhine and sister locations Walnut Hills Kitchen and Walnut Hills Pantry remain timely and vital. They continue to COLUMBUS (AP) — Organizers behind the annual Ohio State Fair say new attractions will include unusual flavors on popular food staples and a world record attempt. The Columbus Dispatch reports that entertainment when the fair opens Wednesday will include a stuntman trying to jam people into a 6-foot latex balloon for a world record, and a singing competition modeled after “American Idol.” Food staples like fried dough will have a new latte flavor, and funnel cakes can provide an intersection for disparate people - those who need help and those who want to help. The kitchens serve 230,300 meals a year. Another 9,000 people, some repeat clients, receive groceries and household items - dry goods, eggs, toiletries. Over-the-Rhine and Walnut Hills, founded in 1984, operate with a paid staff of six. A regular roster of 42 secular groups and congregations, Christian and Jewish, contributes nearly 50,000 volunteer hours annually. In fact, Bokenkotter said, that passionate commitment to the kitchen is the reason it’s still around. Mike Weber, 66, is retired from the printing business, lives in Symmes Township and has volunteered to serve one meal a week for the past three years. He is often joined by his wife, Peg, 57. “Here’s one philosophy: I don’t ask a lot of questions,” Weber said after serving for an hour, a ring of sweat darkening the neckline of his gray T-shirt. “Ninety percent are very grateful. They come in hungry. They leave full. So it’s basic. They’re hungry at
HomeOwnership Center of Greater Dayton. There is no cash compensation if a foreclosure is not completed, but the foreclosure will be suspended, according to government officials. But eligible homeowners have been difficult to find. Many have lost their homes, and others are reluctant to open mail from a bank, said Beth Deutscher, executive director of the HomeOwnership Center. “It doesn’t surprise me the response rates are low,” said Deutscher. Efforts to reach borrowers have been criticized for not doing more in areas such as testing readability of documents, working with consumer groups and spelling out the financial remediation available, according to a GAO report this month. It found efforts to reach homeowners have improved in the last year, but regulators and bankers could still do better. Lenders will continue to work with regulators to try to reach customers, said the Housing Policy Council of The Financial Services Roundtable, which represents mortgage companies.
At 46, Ohio businessman heading to medical school
CLEVELAND (AP) — A 46-year-old Ohio businessman inspired by the service of others is heading to medical school to become a doctor working in an urban setting. “I’ve been inspired by the differences I’ve seen other people make in the inner city,” Bill Downing told The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer. “Pastors, doctors, nurses, social workers, urban pioneers. I felt I needed to invest the rest of my active career on a fulltime basis.” He will enroll at Cleveland State University in the fall in its new joint program with Northeast Ohio Medical University to provide doctors in underserved urban neighborhoods. Rev. Duane Crabbs, who founded South Street Ministries in Akron with his wife, Lisa, 15 years ago, has worked with Downing for six years and calls him humble and a man of great integrity.

US poverty on pace to reach highest since 1960s
By HOPE YEN Associated Press WASHINGTON — The ranks of America’s poor are on track to climb to levels unseen in nearly half a century, erasing gains from the war on poverty in the 1960s amid a weak economy and fraying government safety net. Census figures for 2011 will be released this fall in the critical weeks ahead of the November elections. The Associated Press surveyed more than a dozen economists, think tanks and academics, both nonpartisan and those with known liberal or conservative leanings, and found a broad consensus: The official poverty rate will rise from 15.1 percent in 2010, climbing as high as 15.7 percent. Several predicted a more modest gain, but even a 0.1 percentage point increase would put poverty at the highest level since 1965. Poverty is spreading at record levels across many groups, from underemployed workers and suburban families to the poorest poor. More discouraged workers are giving up on the job market, leaving them vulnerable as unemployment aid begins to run out. Suburbs are seeing increases in poverty, including in such political battlegrounds as Colorado, Florida By JULIE PACE Associated Press and Nevada, where voters are coping with a new norm of living hand to mouth. “I grew up going to Hawaii every summer. Now I’m here, applying for assistance because it’s hard to make ends meet. It’s very hard to adjust,” said Laura Fritz, 27, of Wheat Ridge, Colo., describing her slide from rich to poor as she filled out aid forms at a county center. Since 2000, large swaths of Jefferson County just outside Denver have seen poverty nearly double. Fritz says she grew up wealthy in the Denver suburb of Highlands Ranch, but fortunes turned after her parents lost a significant amount of money in the housing bust. Stuck in a half-million dollar house, her parents began living off food stamps and Fritz’s college money evaporated. She tried joining the Army but was injured during basic training. Now she’s living on disability, with an infant daughter and a boyfriend, Garrett Goudeseune, 25, who can’t find work as a landscaper. They are struggling to pay their $650 rent on his unemployment checks and don’t know how they would get by without the extra help as they hope for the job market to improve. In an election year domi-

IT WAS NEWS THEN
HIV manual for churches developed
WASHINGTON (AP)— Houston pastor Timothy W. Sloan has felt for years that he needed to talk about HIV and AIDS with his congregation. But he worried the 3,000 mostly African-American parishioners at St. Luke Missionary Baptist Church in Humble, Texas, could be offended and leave the church or curtail their giving. “On a scale of 1 to 10 it was a 6,” he said of his concerns. Then, a year and a half ago, he joined a group of pastors organized by the NAACP to write a manual for church leaders like himself on talking to their congregations about a disease that has a disproportionate effect on the AfricanAmerican community. Sloan spoke to his congregation about the issue soon after. They surprised him with a standing ovation. Now Sloan hopes others can use the manual he helped create to talk to their congregations. The NAACP this month released it and a 61-page activity manual at the group’s convention in Texas. Shavon Arline-Bradley, the director of health programs for the NAACP, who helped oversee the manual’s creation, said it makes sense for the nation’s largest civil rights organization to be involved in the discussion of HIV and AIDS. “People look at us as just civil rights, and what they’re missing is that health is one of the most pressing civil rights issues of our time,” ArlineBradley said. Religious leaders who helped with the manual said black churches have been reluctant to talk about the disease. That’s in part because the topic is wrapped up with sex and homosexuality, often taboo topics in the church. “Sex is not something church people like to talk about. It’s something they like to do,” said the Rev. Joseph Smith, the assistant to the pastor of the Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria, Va., and one of the people who worked on the manual. Despite the squeamishness, the NAACP says churches can play a role in combatting the alarming impact of HIV on the African-American community. African-Americans make up almost half of all new HIV infections and are less likely to get treatment and more likely to die of complications from AIDS than any other race. Sheridan Todd Yeary, a Baltimore pastor who helped with the manual, said he believes the NAACP’s involvement in the project will reassure some leaders that talking about HIV and AIDS is OK. He compared the organization’s approval to the “Good Housekeeping Seal” of approval for household products. The NAACP, which has its national headquarters in Baltimore, says the manual and an accompanying activity guide are intended to help pastors to learn more about HIV and encourage them involve their churches. The guides suggest pastors talk about HIV in sermons, connect their churches with groups that serve people with HIV, promote safe sex and access to condoms and organize churchbased HIV screening drives. The manual also includes facts about the disease and passages from the Bible to serve as inspiration.
Obama to offer comfort after Colorado shooting
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama dashed to Colorado on Sunday to meet with families of those gunned down in a movie theater and to hear from state and local officials about the shooting that left 12 people dead and dozens more injured. Air Force One was to touch down at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora late Sunday afternoon for the president’s hastily arranged 2 1/2-hour visit, which would include a private meeting with the victims’ loved ones and perhaps a public comment about the shooting early Friday morning at a busy multiplex. For Obama, it was another unhappy occasion for him to serve as national consoler in chief, a role that has become a crucial facet of the presidency. National tragedies can present an opportunity for presidents to show leadership and rise above partisan politics, as with President Bill Clinton and the Oklahoma City bombing and President George W. Bush and the Sept. 11 attacks. But in moments of sorrow, presidents can risk looking detached and out of touch. Bush’s handling of Hurricane Katrina is an often-cited example. Sunday’s trip was Obama’s second time to Colorado in By PAUL WISEMAN AP Economics Writer less than a month to comfort residents in a state that’s critical to the November election. He made a visit in late June to Colorado Springs, where hundreds of homes were destroyed in the most devastating wildfire in the state’s history. “These families need that kind of contact by our elected leader,” Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates told CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “It will be very powerful and it will help them. As awful as what they’ve been through and what they’re going through has been, having the president here is very, very powerful.” “I think the president coming in is a wonderful gesture,” Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan said on ABC’s “This Week.” “He’s coming in, really, to have private conversations with the families. I think that’s totally appropriate.” Obama already had been a frequent election-year visitor to Colorado, which he won by more than 8 percentage points over Republican John McCain four years ago. But neither Obama’s nor GOP challenger Mitt Romney’s camp expects that big a margin this time. Recent polls place Obama’s lead inside the margin of error. The shock of the mass shooting brought the presidential campaign to a standstill for the weekend. Obama cut short a political trip to Florida to return to Washington and
nated by discussion of the middle class, Fritz’s case highlights a dim reality for the growing group in poverty. Millions could fall through the cracks as government aid from unemployment insurance, Medicaid, welfare and food stamps diminishes. “The issues aren’t just with public benefits. We have some deep problems in the economy,” said Peter Edelman, director of the Georgetown Center on Poverty, Inequality and Public Policy. He pointed to the recent recession but also longer-term changes in the economy such as globalization, automation, outsourcing, immigration, and less unionization that have pushed median household income lower. Even after strong economic growth in the 1990s, poverty never fell below a 1973 low of 11.1 percent. That low point came after President Lyndon Johnson’s war on poverty, launched in 1964, that created Medicaid, Medicare and other social welfare programs. “I’m reluctant to say that we’ve gone back to where we were in the 1960s. The programs we enacted make a big difference. The problem is that the tidal wave of low-wage jobs is dragging us down and the wage problem is not going to go away anytime soon,” Edelman said. Romney canceled interviews. Both campaigns pulled ads off the air in Colorado out of respect for the victims. “This weekend I hope everyone takes some time for prayer and reflection,” Obama said Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address, “for the victims of this terrible tragedy, for the people who knew them and loved them, for those who are still struggling to recover.” Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Sunday during a briefing on Air Force One that the Obama campaign will keep its television ads off the air in Colorado through at least today. Psaki said the campaign canceled a grassroots event scheduled for Portland, Ore., Tuesday in part because resources had to be diverted to Colorado for the president’s trip. She said it was appropriate to cancel the grassroots rally because of the tone of that type of campaign event. But some election activities were to resume today. From Colorado, Obama was to fly to San Francisco to start a previously scheduled three-day campaign trip that includes a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Reno, Nev., fundraisers in California, Oregon and Washington state, and a speech to the National Urban League convention in New Orleans.
Global economy in worst shape since 2009
WASHINGTON — The global economy is in the worst shape since the dark days of 2009. Six of the 17 countries that use the euro currency are in recession. The U.S. economy is struggling again. And the economic superstars of the developing world — China, India and Brazil — are in no position to come to the rescue. They’re slowing, too. The lengthening shadow over the world’s economy illustrates one of the consequences of globalization: There’s nowhere to hide. Economies around the world have never been so tightly linked — which means that as one region weakens, others do, too. That’s why Europe’s slowdown is hurting factories in China. And why those Chinese factories are buying less iron ore from Brazil. As a result of this global economic slowdown, the International Monetary Fund has reduced its forecast for world growth this year to 3.5 percent, the slowest since a 0.6 percent drop in 2009. Some economists predict the global economy will grow a full percentage point less. For now, few foresee another global recession. Central banks in China, Britain, Brazil, South Korea and Europe have cut interest rates in the past month to try to jolt growth. European leaders have begun to focus more on promoting growth, not just shrinking debt and cutting budgets. The Chinese government, in particular, is expected to do what it takes to protect its economy from deteriorating too quickly. And despite their slowdowns, China and India are still growing at rates America and Europe can only imagine. But many economists say European policymakers aren’t moving fast enough to strengthen European banks and ease borrowing costs for Italy and Spain. They fear the global impact if Europe’s economy deteriorates further. Stock prices in the United States and elsewhere are fluctuating almost daily depending on the outlook for a resolution of Europe’s debt crisis. Around the world, sales at companies ranging from automakers to technology companies are falling. Advanced Micro Devices, a California-based maker of
computer chips used in everything from slot machines to smart cameras, says revenue likely dropped 11 percent in the second quarter because of weaker-than-expected sales in China and Europe. At Jagemann Stamping Co. in Manitowoc, Wis., sales to Europe have dropped more than 10 percent from a year ago. The company makes metal parts for auto companies and other customers. It’s still enjoying strong sales in the United States, so it hasn’t had to cut workers because of falling business in Germany and the Czech Republic. “What it does is slow our new hiring,” says company president Ralph Hardt. One growing concern about the global economy is there’s little margin for error: Unemployment is already at recession levels in Europe and the United States. The United States, by far the world’s biggest economy, has long pulled the global economy out of slumps. Now it needs help. Three years after the Great Recession officially ended, the American economy can’t maintain momentum. For the third straight year, growth has stalled at mid-year after getting off to a promising start.

An epic collapse, a British Open for the ages
By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press
LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England — If this had been a normal British Open, Ernie Els would’ve been hanging out on the putting green hoping his work was done. Any other time, he wouldn’t have welcomed a playoff to secure the title. The Big Easy was willing to make an exception this time. There was nothing normal about a wind-swept Sunday at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. “Crazy, crazy, crazy,” Els kept saying. Crazy, indeed. And, for the guy who let it slip away, a gutwrenching blow. Adam Scott had the claret jug in his grasp with four holes to play. A player of enormous potential was poised to fulfill his promise at age 32, to collect the first major championship of his career after building a comfortable lead over three days of brilliant golf. Then, a bogey. And another. And another. And finally, at the 18th hole, with a 7-foot putt to at least force a playoff, he missed again. Scott’s knees buckled. Golf’s oldest championship had been snatched away, handed to Els with one of the great collapses in golfing history. “You’re not really hoping the guy is going to make a mistake but you’re hoping you don’t have to go to a playoff,” said Els, who was playing two groups ahead of Scott. “This one was different because I feel for Adam. I really didn’t mind going to a playoff. He probably didn’t feel that. But I was, at best, hoping for a playoff on the putting green.” When it was done, Scott had to make a painful walk back to the 18th green to collect the prize that goes to the runner-up. On the table was the silver chalice that should’ve been his. He gave it to Els on a silver platter. The winner hardly sounded like one. In fact, Els was downright apologetic about the way it happened. “Sorry,” he said, looking toward a glassy-eyed Scott. “You’re a great player, a great friend of mine. I feel very fortunate. You’re going to win many of these.” Scott certainly has plenty of years to capture a major. He’s just coming into what should be the prime of his career. But no one really knows how he’ll bounce back from such a bitter disappointment. He has joined the infamous list of epic meltdowns, his name now etched alongside the likes of Jean Van de Velde and Ed Sneed and, yes, Greg Norman, his Aussie countryman and childhood hero. “I played so beautifully all week,” Scott said. “I shouldn’t let this get me down.” But how could he not? Scott can only hope he doesn’t turn out to be another Van de Velde or Sneed, players who had their one shot at glory and never came close again. Els tried to be encouraging. “I told him, ‘I’ve been there many times and you’ve just got to bounce back quickly. Don’t let this thing linger’,” recalled Els, who added a second Open title to a pair of U.S. Open crowns. “I feel for him. But thankfully he’s young enough. He’s 32 years old. He’s got the next 10 years that he can win more than I’ve won. I’ve won four now. I think he can win more than that.” Assuming he can get over this. Scott, who went into the final round with a 4-stroke lead after three straight rounds in the 60s, got off to a wobbly start with two bogeys on the first three holes. But the breeze off the Irish Sea — nonexistent through the first three rounds — blew everyone else away. Everyone but Els, that is, a guy who hadn’t won in more than two years, a guy whose best golf seemed behind him. Tiger Woods made a triplebogey at the sixth, forced to take one swing while sitting on the grass next to a bunker. In one wayward hole, he lost any chance of rallying to win a 15th major title and end a more than 4-year drought since his last big win. Graeme McDowell duckhooked his ball into the trees along the 11th fairway, the sort of shot that a weekend duffer might hit, not the 2010 U.S. Open champion. Thirty-sixhole leader Brandt Snedeker also lost a ball, gobbled up by the thick rough. Els was the only one who mounted a charge, closing with a 2-under 68. But, let’s face it, that shouldn’t have been enough. “I know I’ve let a really great chance slip through my fingers,” Scott conceded. “But somehow I’ll look back and take the positives from it. I don’t think I’ve ever played this well in a major championship, so that’s a good thing for me moving forward. All the stuff I’m doing is going in the right direction.” Scott appeared to wrap it up with a birdie at the 14th hole, restoring the 4-stroke lead he had at the start of the day. Even when a shot into one of the 206 bunkers at Royal Lytham led to a bogey at the 15th, he seemed in good shape. But when he missed a 3-footer at the 16th, there were some ominous groans from the gallery. And when Els, a couple of holes ahead, rolled in a 15-footer for birdie at the tough finishing hole, Scott couldn’t miss the cheers from across the course. The lead was down to a single shot. “Yeah, I heard it,” Scott said. “I didn’t even have to look at the leaderboard to realize the situation.” He responded with a clutch tee shot at the 17th, right in the middle of the fairway, but the next swing is the one he’ll carry with him for a while. A 6-iron from 178 yards landed short of the green in waist-high grass. He failed to convert the up-and-down. Just like that, the lead was gone. “Looking back on it, it all comes down to the shot into 17 for me,” Scott said. “That’s the one I’m most disappointed with. At that point, I’m still well in control of the tournament.” Then he knocked his tee shot at 18 into another bunker, the ball winding up next to one of the towering sod walls, leaving him with no other choice except to punch it out into the fairway. He showed plenty of guts by getting his iron shot so close but the long putter that had worked so well all week let him down again. The ball never had a chance, rolling past the left edge of the cup. “It’s hard to watch a guy do that,” said McDowell, who also played in the final group. Scott finished with a 5-over 75, leaving him one stroke behind Els’ winning total of 7-under 273. In a sense, this was eerily reminiscent of Norman, who won two British Opens but is best known for all the majors that got away — none more so than the 1996 Masters, when he squandered a 6-shot lead by shooting 78 in the final round. “Greg was my hero when I was a kid and I thought he was a great role model, how he handled himself in victory and defeat,” Scott said. “He set a good example for us. It’s tough ... I can’t justify anything that I’ve done out there. I didn’t finish the tournament well today. But next time — and I’m sure there will be a next time — I can do a better job of it.” For now, the pain is too
US men hold off Argentina in basketball exhibition
By BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain — Dressed up like the Dream Team, this U.S. Olympic basketball squad even played like one for 10 minutes. It didn’t last but the Americans never thought it would. Argentina came nearly all the way back before the U.S. held on for an 86-80 victory Sunday in an exhibition game. The Americans held on to win it thanks to big 3-pointers from Kevin Durant and Chris Paul, insisting the close game serves them better than the type of blowouts the Dream Team always posted. Durant scored 27 points for the Americans, who wore the throwback uniforms of the 1992 Dream Team for their return to Barcelona. They looked like the Hall-ofFame squad during a superb opening quarter but their lead was down to four with 2:50 left after Manu Ginobili’s 3-point play. The Americans won after being pushed for the second time in their four exhibition games. Kobe Bryant added 18 points and Lebron James had 15 for the U.S., which beat Brazil 80-69 in a similarly rugged game last week in Washington. Ginobili scored 23 points, Carlos Delfino had 15 and Luis Scola 14 for Argentina. Back in Barcelona, where the Dream Team won gold 20 years earlier in historic and overwhelmingly easy fashion, the U.S. players wore that team’s colors. The white uniforms with red and blue along the side and USA in the middle also had the letters “CD” in gold on the left shoulder in honor of Chuck Daly, the Dream Team coach who died in 2009. Otherwise, the Americans are more interested in building for London than reflecting too much on the past. The two games here should certainly help them get ready. The Americans play Spain on Tuesday, a rematch of their 118-107 win in the gold-medal game four years ago. Coach Mike Krzyzewski unveiled another starting lineup, with James, Durant, Bryant, Paul and Tyson Chandler. He has alternated the Durant-Carmelo Anthony and Paul-Deron Williams combination, with the other three spots set. The first group got off to a sensational start, Durant
deep to just put it aside and get on with the rest of his career. Scott doesn’t know how long it will take go away. He only hopes it will. “Well, it may not have sunk in yet, so I don’t know,” Scott added ruefully. “Hopefully I can let it go really quick and get on with what I plan to do next week and get ready for my next tournament. We’ll see. I don’t know, I’ve never really been in this position, so I’ll have to wait and see how I feel when I wake up tomorrow.”
True South Classic MADISON, Miss. — Scott Stallings strolled down the fairway on the 18th hole of the True South Classic, smiling and waving to a few fans like he didn’t have a care in the world. There would be no final-hole drama at Annandale Golf Club. He had this one all wrapped up. Stallings shot a 4-under 68 in the final round on Sunday to beat Jason Bohn by two strokes. It was his first Tour victory of the year and the second of his career. He finished with a 24-under 264, which is a tournament record at Annandale. With a few holes remaining, it looked as if the True South Classic would host a tight finish. But Stallings made back-to-back birdies on 16 and 17 to suck all the suspense right out of the final hole. Bohn shot a 5-under 67 on Sunday. Billy Horschel was alone in third, four strokes back. The 27-year-old Stallings raced up the leaderboard after shooting backto-back 64s in the second and third rounds. That gave him a 1-stroke lead over Horschel heading into the final day. Annandale was drenched by heavy rain for much of the past week and the soft, slow fairways and greens led to nearly ideal conditions for low scores. American Century Championship STATELINE, Nev. — Dan Quinn birdied three of his first seven holes Sunday to pull ahead and then stretched his lead on the back nine to earn a 6-point victory over former NFL quarterback Mark Rypien in the American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. Quinn, a former NHL star who will caddie for Els next week at the Canadian Open, was hoping for the same come-from behind victory at the American Century Championship. He started the day three points behind second-round leader Rypien. Quinn finished with 66 points in the modified Stableford scoring system to win the event for the fourth time. Rypien was second with 60 and Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway finished third with 59. Quinn, who earned $125,000 from a total purse of $600,000, started the day three points behind second-round leader Rypien, who had 43 points after 54 holes. Billy Joe Tolliver finished fourth with 58 points; Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was fifth with 56 and Joe Theismann was sixth with 53. Former MLB pitcher Mark Mulder, who shared the first-round lead with defending champion Jack Wagner, finished in seventh place with 52 points. Wagner slipped to eighth place with 51. At the halfway point, Quinn held a 52-50 lead over Rypien. The former hockey player birdied the par-4 11th to move in front by four points over Rypien and five ahead of Romo with three good scoring holes remaining — especially the par-5 16th and 18th. Quinn then made a 25-footer for birdie on 16 to close the door on his challengers. Romo failed to birdie the 16th and then took a double bogey on the final hole to lose two points.
The Associated Press National League WASHINGTON — Ryan Zimmerman homered twice and drove in three runs and Danny Espinosa and Roger Bernadina each had three hits and two RBIs as the Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 9-2 to split a 4-game series between the top two teams in the NL East. Zimmerman’s 2-run homer and Danny Espinosa’s double keyed a 4-run first off Atlanta starter Jair Jurrjens (3-4). Michael Morse had three hits and scored three runs for the Nationals, who had 18 hits. Ross Detwiler (5-3) allowed two runs and seven hits in seven innings to win his first game since May 3. CARDINALS 7, CUBS 0 ST. LOUIS — Lance Lynn won his 12th game with six mostly spotless innings and Matt Holliday and Carlos Beltran homered on consecutive pitches to put the finishing touches on the St. Louis Cardinals’ victory that completed a 3-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs. Jon Jay and Tony Cruz hit consecutive 2-run doubles off Travis Wood (4-5) in the first for St. Louis. Lynn (12-4) has allowed just one run in 19 innings his last three starts. Fernando Salas and Marc Rzepczynski finished a combined 5-hitter as the Cardinals earned consecutive shutouts for the first time since Oct. 1-2, 2010 against the Rockies. PIRATES 3, MARLINS 0 PITTSBURGH — Jeff Karstens pitched seven crisp innings, Pedro Alvarez homered and the surging Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Miami Marlins for their fifth consecutive win. Karstens (3-2) allowed five hits, struck out three and walked two. Joel Hanrahan earned his 28th save as Pittsburgh completed its fourth sweep of the season — all at home — while matching its longest winning streak since Sept. 17-22, 2010. Anibal Sanchez (5-7) took the loss for Miami, which has dropped five straight, scoring a total of seven runs during the slide. Alvarez’s fourth homer in his last six games and No. 21 for the season came after Casey McGehee led off the seventh with a double, making it 3-0. DODGERS 8, METS 3, 12 INN. NEW YORK — Pinch-hitter Matt Treanor had a 2-run single in a 5-run 12th and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the fading New York Mets to finish a 3-game sweep. The Dodgers blew a 3-1 lead after the sixth but still won their fourth straight. Josh Wall (1-0) made his majorleague debut in the 11th, giving up a single to David Wright before he was caught trying to steal second base. Ramon Ramirez (2-2) took the loss for New York.
REDS 2, BREWERS 1 CINCINNATI — Wilson Valdez drove in the tying run and scored the go-ahead run to back Johnny Cueto’s seven solid innings as the Cincinnati Reds wrapped up one of the best homestands in franchise history with a win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Cueto (12-5) matched his singleseason career high in wins to lead the Reds to their eighth victory on the 10-game homestand. It’s only the fifth time in franchise history that Cincinnati posted at least eight wins on a homestand of 10 or fewer games. The last time was in 1975, when the Reds went 8-1 on a homestand. The Reds are 5-2 since learning that All-Star first baseman Joey Votto needed arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. Cueto (12-5) overcame a 30-pitch first inning, which ended with Milwaukee leaving the bases loaded. Mike Fiers (3-4) lasted six innings in the loss. PHILLIES 4, GIANTS 3, 12 INN. PHILADELPHIA — Jimmy Rollins hit an RBI single to lift the Philadelphia Phillies past the San Francisco Giants in 12 innings. John Mayberry Jr. hit two solo homers for the last-place Phillies and Nate Schierholtz hit a pair of solo shots for the NL West-leading Giants. Brad Penny (0-1) walked Carlos Ruiz with one out in the 12th. Laynce Nix followed with a single to right to move Ruiz to third. Rollins then lined the first pitch to right to end it. Kyle Kendrick (4-8) tossed 2 1/3 innings to earn the win and extended his career-best scoreless streak to 18 2/3 innings. DIAMONDBACKS 8, ASTROS 2 PHOENIX — Jason Kubel homered for the sixth time in five games, Chris Young added a 3-run shot and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Houston to complete a high-scoring, 3-game sweep of the staggering Astros. Kubel led off the second inning with his 21st of the season. Young’s homer highlighted a season-high 7-run sixth for the Diamondbacks, who outscored Houston 33-13 in the series. Justin Maxwell homered for Houston. Houston was swept for the eighth time this season. Josh Collmenter (2-2) gave up two runs and seven hits through six innings to get the win. PADRES 3, ROCKIES 2 SAN DIEGO — Will Venable drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and Everth Cabrera had two hits and scored twice as the San Diego Padres beat the Colorado Rockies. Dale Thayer (2-2) pitched 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief to earn the win for the Padres. Huston Street retired the side in order in the ninth to convert his 16th save in as many chances. Cabrera singled to lead off the
seventh against Adam Ottavino (2-1) before Colorado manager Jim Tracy brought in left-hander Matt Reynolds to face John Baker, who sacrificed Cabrera to second. Venable, who entered in the top of the inning as part of a double-switch, singled to right and Cabrera beat Tyler Colvin’s throw home to put San Diego on top 3-2. American League OAKLAND, Calif. — Seth Smith hit a tying homer in the ninth inning, Coco Crisp singled home the winning run in the 12th and the surging Oakland Athletics rallied from four runs down to stun the New York Yankees 5-4 on Sunday and complete a 4-game sweep. Smith homered to center with one out in the ninth off closer Rafael Soriano to help the A’s sweep the Yankees in a 4-game series at the Oakland Coliseum for the first time. The Athletics improved to 14-2 in July, the best record in the majors. Derek Norris started the final rally with a 1-out single off Derek Jeter’s glove at shortstop. Jemile Weeks followed with a sacrifice bunt, setting the stage for Oakland’s major leagueleading 11th walk-off win. Crisp’s humpback liner to right off Cody Eppley (0-2) gave the A’s their fifth straight victory. Jerry Blevins (3-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. Brandon Inge and Kurt Suzuki hit solo homers off Yankees ace CC Sabathia. TIGERS 6, WHITE SOX 4 DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera homered twice, reaching 300 for his career and helping the Tigers finish a 3-game sweep of Chicago. Detroit wrapped up a 6-1 homestand against the White Sox and Los Angeles Angels. Cabrera became the second Venezuela-born player to reach 300 home runs. Andres Galarraga hit 399. Quintin Berry and Brennan Boesch also homered for Detroit to help rookie Jacob Turner (1-1) earn his first career win. Joaquin Benoit worked a perfect ninth for his second save. Philip Humber (4-5) allowed six runs in three innings. ORIOLES 4, INDIANS 3 CLEVELAND — Zach Britton pitched six shutout innings, J.J. Hardy drove in three runs and Baltimore beat Cleveland for its fifth straight win. Britton (1-0) gave up four hits in his second start since being recalled from the minors. He struck out five and got 11 other outs on grounders. Luis Ayala gave up a 2-run homer to Cleveland’s Carlos Santana with one out in the ninth. Jim Johnson came on and got two outs for his major leagueleading 30th save in 32 chances. He yielded a double to Shelley Duncan and a pinch-hit RBI single to Travis Hafner that made it 4-3. Hardy hit a 2-run homer in the first
off Josh Tomlin (5-7) and an RBI single in the seventh against reliever Esmil Rogers. Wilson Betemit also homered for Baltimore. BLUE JAYS 15, RED SOX 7 BOSTON — Brett Lawrie hit the game’s first pitch for one of Toronto’s four homers and the Blue Jays tagged Jon Lester for a career-worst 11 runs to complete a 3-game sweep of Boston. J.P. Arencibia, Rajai Davis and Travis Snider also homered for the Blue Jays as the matched their season high with 18 hits. Lester (5-8) allowed a career-high four homers and nine hits. He was booed off the field after being pulled with no outs in the fifth. Adrian Gonzalez hit a 3-run homer and Jacoby Ellsbury a solo shot for the Red Sox. MARINERS 2, RAYS 1 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Blake Beavan scattered four hits over eight innings and Seattle edged Tampa Bay to finish a 5-2 road trip. Jesus Montero and Brendan Ryan each had an RBI double for the Mariners. Beavan (5-6) struck out five and walked none, outpitching Matt Moore in a tight duel. Tom Wilhelmsen worked a scoreless ninth for his 10th save, completing the 5-hitter. Pinch-hitter Hideki Matsui, mired in an 0-for-16 skid, popped out with two on to end it. Moore (6-7) struck out seven in eight innings for the Rays. He retired his final 17 batters. TWINS 7, ROYALS 5 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ryan Doumit homered from both sides of the plate and drove in four runs to lead Minnesota over Kansas City. Doumit became the third Twins player to go deep from each side in a game. The others were Chili Davis (1992) and Roy Smalley (1986). Hitting .354 in his past 26 games, Doumit also had a 2-run single in a 4-run third to match his career high for RBIs. Samuel Deduno (1-0) earned his first big-league victory by limiting the Royals to one run over 6 1/3 innings. Doumit’s big day spoiled the Royals debut of right-hander Jeremy Guthrie, acquired Friday in a trade with Colorado for Jonathan Sanchez. Guthrie (3-10) yielded four runs on five hits and three walks in five innings. ANGELS 7, RANGERS 4 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Albert Pujols and Bobby Wilson homered and Mike Trout scored a run in his 14th consecutive game to set an AL rookie record, leading Los Angeles over Texas to win the 3-game series. Dan Haren pitched effectively in his first start off the DL for the Angels. Haren (7-8) threw 95 pitches over six innings, allowing two runs, three hits and three walks while striking out three.
Stomach bug can’t stop Sadler at Chicagoland
By CHRIS JENKINS The Associated Press JOLIET, Ill. — Asked why he wouldn’t just hand the steering wheel over to a relief driver if he was too sick to race, Elliott Sadler proudly recalled a similar situation he encountered earlier in his career. If he could throw up three times in his helmet and keep driving like he did that day a few years ago, he certainly wasn’t going to let some stomach virus get the best of him on Sunday. To Sadler, it was a test of his toughness. “I pride myself being in shape, not getting hot,” Sadler said. “Because we talk every week about putting extra fans in the car and I don’t need none of that (stuff). I take care of myself at home, I work out a lot and do a lot of stuff outdoors. I’m an outdoors guy. I’m not an airconditioned gym guy.” After spending most of the week sick in bed, Sadler brushed off questions from team owner Richard Childress about a potential replacement driver, then held off a charge by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on a green-white-checker finish to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday. Sadler said he was unable
opening with two 3-pointers before Bryant’s basket made it 8-0. Scola made a free throw before Bryant and Durant nailed 3s and Bryant dunked to make it 16-1 not even three minutes into the game. The lead grew to 19-3 on Bryant’s 3-pointer and Durant and Williams each hit one in the final minute as the Americans led 31-16 on the strength of seven 3-pointers. The Americans led by 20 early in the second but like in their 101-81 victory in the Beijing semifinals, they began fouling too much and let Argentina get back into it with its feisty, physical play. This “friendly” — Scola and Kevin Love even appeared together at midcourt before the game to address the crowd, after Love was suspended two games during the NBA season for stepping on him — didn’t stay that way. Paul fouled guard Facundo Campazzo, who fell to the court after Paul appeared to hold onto him too long, with 5:33 left in the half and the U.S. up 14. Some words and light pushes were exchanged. Scola and Andres Nocioni were involved, along with Anthony and Durant. Argentina kept fighting, cutting it all the way to 45-40 in the last minute of the half before going into the break down by seven. A contender for a podium spot for nearly a decade, Argentina is hoping the run isn’t over for its “Golden Generation.” The Argentines didn’t medal in the 2010 worlds — Ginobili didn’t play — and were beaten by Spain by 20 on Friday. Ginobili is 34, Scola and Andres Nocioni are 32, Knicks-bound guard Pablo Prigioni is 35, Fabricio Oberto no longer plays and the Argentines haven’t found younger talent like they had in this group, which also won silver in the 2002 world basketball championship. But they don’t go down easily, even when the game doesn’t count. After James threw down two dunks to open the fourth quarter and push the U.S. lead to 15, the Argentines got it back to 10 midway through the period after Ginobili scored five straight points and they had one more burst in them. But Durant followed Ginobili’s 3-point play with a 3-pointer and Paul’s 3 with 2:08 remaining made it an 8-point game, plenty of cushion for the last 2 minutes.
to eat anything beyond a single biscuit before the race and acknowledged it was taking a toll. Childress said he thought about putting a backup driver in place as an insurance policy but understood why Sadler didn’t want to give up the wheel. “I’ve seen drivers when it gets down to it, that’s worse than giving your wife away, I think,” Childress said. Childress then sheepishly apologized to Sadler’s wife, who was sitting off to the side in the postrace interview room. Stenhouse finished second, followed by Justin Allgaier, Kenny Wallace and Michael Annett. Wallace’s car was found to be too light in postrace inspection. NASCAR officials are expected to determine any penalties early this week. Stenhouse appeared to have the stronger car and was chasing down Sadler in the closing laps. But a late caution bunched up the field for NASCAR’s version of overtime, Sadler got a push from Allgaier on the restart and pulled away. Had the race gone green until the end, Stenhouse was certain he would have ended up in victory lane. See SADLER, page 7

Koz wins Steve Brown Memorial
Sauder and Sherman also find the Winner’s Circle
The Delphos Herald LIMA — Limaland Motorsports Park marked the 77th Anniversary of racing on the very same location in western Allen County Friday and it was only fitting that the racing action itself was both dominant and closely contested. You can only imagine the original racers of long ago would be amazed and proud at what has become of the famed speed plant on Dutch Hollow Road. A trio of former winners lined up for the 18-lap Budweiser Thunderstocks feature, the coveted Steve Brown Memorial. Barney Craig in 2000; Tony Anderson in ’03, ’05 and ’07; and Shawn Valenti from 2004; all hoped to recapture the magic of earlier conquests. Although all three finished inside of the top five, the 2012 season has seen Lima’s Jeff Koz add a remarkable five feature wins to his record, including the Steve Brown Memorial. Koz benefitted from the pole starting position after winning his heat race and getting a favorable random inversion. It proved too much for the competition to overcome. The race track had excellent grip for the first of the three feature races and Koz drove impressively using most of the 1/4-mile oval racing surface to lead flag-to-flag. “I was a little nervous after seeing some of the water on the bottom in turns 1 and 2 because normally I’m a bottom feeder,” declared Koz after the race. “I just put the machine mostly up on the top and made it work. It’s like no other experience driving through traffic when you are leading. You just try to keep it clean.” Point’s leader Valenti, a 4-time winner in 2012, finished as the race runner-up but never seriously challenged Koz. It was a measure of how dominant Koz was for the duration of the event. “I was waiting for Shawn to come up behind me and it never happened, so I’m grateful,” said Koz. The win marked his fifth of the 2012 season and seventh of his Limaland Motorsports Park career. The Engine Pro NRA Sprint Invaders returned for the first time in nearly a month and veteran Randy Hannagan was on a roll, having won six of the 10 races on the season for the touring series. An accident at the start of his heat race left Hannagan with a back-row Motorsports Park Facebook and Twitter. on

(Continued from Page 6) It was the third win of the season for Sadler, who has eight Nationwide victories in his career. Sadler won at Phoenix and Bristol earlier this season. He leads the series standings by 11 points over Austin Dillon, who finished sixth. Track officials held a moment of silence before the race and the No. 24 car driven by Benny Gordon carried the message “Remember Aurora Colorado” on its rear fender. Danica Patrick finished 14th. Many of the leaders had just made their final pit stop of the day when Brad Sweet
spun to bring out a caution. It was a boost to several drivers, including Sadler, Allgaier and Kyle Busch, who were able to pit under caution. The ill-timed caution flag hurt several drivers who already had pitted — especially Sam Hornish Jr., who expressed his annoyance to his crew on the radio. He finished eighth. Sadler led when the race restarted with 28 laps to go. Stenhouse then made a charge, taking third place from Busch with 20 laps to go and second from Allgaier with 16 to go. Sadler had a lead of just under 2 seconds, with
Stenhouse closing quickly. Then Hornish tapped the rear bumper of Busch and sent him crashing into Brendan Gaughan with eight laps left, bringing out a caution and bunching up the field. Hornish apologized after the race. Stenhouse was hoping officials would stop the race with a red flag to clean up the track and run a few more laps to the finish but it didn’t happen. Sadler and Stenhouse lined up for the green-whitechecker restart and Allgaier gave Sadler a push when the green flag fell. Sadler surged away and Allgaier couldn’t stay in contact.

‘Dark Knight Rises’ earns $160M
LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Dark Knight Rises” was on track to earn $160 million, which would be a record for 2-D films, over the weekend following a mass shooting at a Colorado screening of the Batman film. Citing box office insiders, The Hollywood Reporter, Los Angeles Times, New York Times and other media outlets reported Sunday that the latest Batman sequel earned $160 million to $162 million. That amount would best the $158.4 million debut of “The Dark Knight” in 2008 and give “Dark Knight Rises” the third-highest domestic weekend opening ever, after the 3-D films “The Avengers” with $207.4 million and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2” with $169.2 million. The Hollywood Reporter also cited box office sources who said “Dark Knight Rises” earned $70 million from nine of the 17 countries where it debuted over the weekend, including the United Kingdom, Australia, South Korea and Spain. Tickets for 3-D films cost a few more dollars than 2-D screenings, netting extra cash at the box office. Movies released in 3-D typically earn under half of their income in 3-D screenings, sometimes as little as a third. Sony, Fox, Disney, Paramount, Universal and Lionsgate joined “Dark Knight Rises” distributor Warner Bros in publicly withholding their usual revenue reports out of respect for the victims of the deadly shooting early Friday and their families. Box-office tracking service Rentrak also did not report figures following the Aurora, Colo., shootings that killed 12 and injured 58 at a midnight screening of the new Batman sequel on Friday. “This tragedy did not seem to impact the box office in a major way,” said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for Hollywood.com who specializes in box office. “For this film to still be in the rarified air of the top-three openings of all time is phenomenal, given the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the release of this film.” Dergarabedian noted that the box-office ranking of director Christopher Nolan’s final installment of his Batman trilogy would not be official until Warner Bros. and other studios release their final weekend box-office tallies Monday. Anne Hathaway, who plays Catwoman in the film, became the third member of “The Dark Knight Rises” cast and crew to express her condolences after arriving home in the United States from Paris, where Warner Bros. quickly canceled a premiere Friday night. “My heart aches and breaks for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomable senseless act,” the actress said in a statement. “I am at a loss for words how to express my sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”

Search for missing Iowa girls will likely expand
By JOSH FUNK Associated Press Law enforcement officials will likely expand their search for two missing Iowa cousins now that the girls’ disappearance is considered an abduction case, experts said. But experts said it’s hard to tell exactly what’s going on because officials probably aren’t disclosing everything they know, including why they are confident that 10-year-old Lyric Cook-Morrissey and 8-year-old Elizabeth Collins are alive. FBI spokeswoman Sandy Breault said Sunday that investigators want to talk to anyone who was at Meyers Lake in the northeast Iowa town of Evansdale before 3 p.m. July 13. That’s where the girls’ bicycles were found. Breault’s plea for help fits with what David Finkelhor, director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center, expected would happen after the case was reclassified as an abduction. He said investigators now may be more dependent on tips from the public. “They’ve got to cast a much wider net. They could be miles from that spot there,” said Finkelhor, who is based at the University of New Hampshire. Finkelhor said if the girls were abducted by a stranger, the statistics are grim — his research shows that 40-50 percent of children in that situation aren’t recovered alive. But, he said, abductions by strangers are so rare that it’s difficult to predict what might happen. Several “persons of interest” have been interviewed in the case, and numerous tips from the public have come into investigators. Breault also said that most of the girls’ family members have been cooperating with investigators. Lyric’s father, Daniel Morrissey, is being watched closely by authorities but has not been named a suspect. Morrissey, 36, has a lengthy criminal history and is no longer cooperating with police. He has been placed in a pretrial supervision program in

Experts say some fracking rhetoric is misleading
By KEVIN BEGOS Associated Press PITTSBURGH — In the debate over natural gas drilling, the companies are often the ones accused of twisting the facts. But scientists say opponents sometimes mislead the public, too. Critics of fracking often raise alarms about groundwater pollution, air pollution, and cancer risks, and there are still many uncertainties. But some of the claims have little — or nothing— to back them. For example, reports that breast cancer rates rose in a region with heavy gas drilling are false, researchers told The Associated Press. Fears that natural radioactivity in drilling waste could contaminate drinking water aren’t being confirmed by monitoring, either. And concerns about air pollution from the industry often don’t acknowledge that natural gas is a far cleaner burning fuel than coal. “The debate is becoming very emotional. And basically not using science” on either side, said Avner Vengosh, a Duke University professor studying groundwater contamination who has been praised and criticized by both sides. Shale gas drilling has attracted national attention because advances in technology have unlocked billions of dollars of gas reserves, leading to a boom in production, jobs, and profits, as well as concerns about pollution and public health. Shale is a gasrich rock formation thousands of feet underground, and the gas is freed through a process called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in which large volumes of water, plus sand and chemicals, are injected to break the rock apart. The Marcellus Shale covers large parts of Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and West Virginia, while the Barnett Shale is in north Texas. Many other shale deposits have been discovered. One of the clearest examples of a misleading claim comes from north Texas, where gas drilling began in the Barnett Shale about 10 years ago. Opponents of fracking say breast cancer rates have spiked exactly where intensive drilling is taking place — and nowhere else in the state. The claim is used in a letter that was sent to New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo by environmental groups and by Josh Fox, the Oscar-nominated director of “Gasland,” a film that criticizes the industry. Fox, who lives in Brooklyn, has a new short film called “The Sky is Pink.” But researchers haven’t seen a spike in breast cancer rates in the area, said Simon Craddock Lee, a professor of medical anthropology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. David Risser, an epidemiologist with the Texas Cancer Registry, said in an email that researchers checked state

Komen for the Cure, a major cancer advocacy group based in Dallas, said it sees no evidence of a spike, either. “We don’t,” said Chandini Portteus, Komen’s vice president of research, adding that they sympathize with people’s fears and concerns, but “what we do know is a little bit, and what we don’t know is a lot” about breast cancer Local and Available and the environment. Yet Fox tells viewers in to you 24-Hours a Day, an ominous voice that “In Texas, as throughout the seven days a week. United States, cancer rates fell — except in one place— in the Barnett Shale.” Lee called the claims of an increase “a classic case of the ecological fallacy” because they falsely suggest that breast cancer is linked to just one factor. In fact, diet, lifestyle and access to health care also play key roles. Fox responded to questions by citing a press release from the Centers for Disease Celina Delphos Lima Van Wert Wapak Control and Prevention that 419-586-1999 419-695-1999 419-991-1822 419-238-9223 419-738-7430 doesn’t support his claim, and a newspaper story that www.ComHealthPro.org Risser said is “not based on a careful statistical analysis of the data.” When Fox was told that Texas cancer researchers said rates didn’t increase, he replied in an email that the claim of unusually high breast cancer rates was “widely reported” and said there is “more than enough evidence to warrant much deeper study.”

The Herald –11
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2012 Something that you’ve desired for quite a while looks like it might actually become a reality for you in the year ahead. Chances are that your target will be of an aesthetic nature rather than a material object. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- In pursuing a project that recently captured your attention, bold moves might be necessary. Instead of leaving things up to chance, determine the course of action yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Just because an idea pops in your head from out of nowhere doesn’t mean it lacks worth. If you think it has merit, don’t be afraid to implement it. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- A brilliant but incomplete idea of yours might find its soul mate. A simpatico new acquaintance might supply you with the missing factors. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Go ahead, ignore the foothills and scale the mountains. Your chart indicates that you’re up to doing things in a big way, so don’t waste time on petty, meaningless endeavors. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Your powers of persuasion are exceptionally strong. You shouldn’t have any trouble getting others to support the ideas you espouse, once they understand the benefits in store. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The possibilities for fulfilling your ambitious objectives are exceptionally good at this point in time. However, it will be up to you to use your gifts to your advantage. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -You have excellent leadership qualities as well as the ability to be a very good team player. Your teammates will recognize this and want only you as their team captain. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It isn’t likely to be “business as usual” for you at present. Conditions are excellent for you to successfully accomplish something big and especially meaningful. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Mostly because you won’t take yourself or life too seriously, you’ll do wonders to enhance your probabilities for success. When you make life fun, chores tend to vanish. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -If conditions are such that you can haggle over the price of something expensive that you want to buy, by all means do so. A little shrewd bargaining could sweeten the deal considerably. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Although you’re a gregarious person, you don’t dwell in a world of idle chatter. When you have something important to say, you’ll do so with purpose and conviction. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -You’re well equipped to instinctively handle financial or commercial affairs in a smart, rewarding manner. Use these gifts to put yourself on the right side of the ledger. WEDNESDAY, JULY 25, 2012 Something in which you’re presently involved might have potential for a greater yield in the coming year than you may realize. It behooves you stick with your current course of action -- it’ll pay off eventually. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It behooves you to be extremely selective regarding those whom you go to for advice. Turning to a friend might not be the smartest thing if he or she isn’t any more informed than you are. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Think twice before getting involved with a friend in some sort of financial matter. It might take a longer time to resolve than anybody realized, and you could be stuck with some of the payback. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Keep your colleagues fully informed about your intentions before acting on them. If you make a move without their knowledge, big trouble could result. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Because of your sharp intuitive powers, you can often see where things are heading from the get-go. That doesn’t mean you’ll always be right, though, and that could be the case today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It’s quite possible that you’ll make an unusually strong impression on others. Just make sure it’s not a negative one. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Partial victories won’t have much significance in the general scheme of things, so don’t kid yourself into believing something is a fait accompli if it’s only half-finished. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you’re not on your toes, it’s quite likely that you’ll repeat an error very similar to one you recently made, only this time you won’t have any excuses. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Do your best to avoid financial gambles and those who are prone to take them. If you don’t do so, you’re asking for money trouble. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Clarify the rules regarding a partnership arrangement so that no one in the group tries to supersede anyone else. Should that happen, trouble is likely. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Move today when considering making any long-range maneuvers concerning your work or career, in order to be sure that your information is accurate and your ideas realistic. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -This is not a good time to make loans to friends or to borrow any funds from them. Arrangements of this ilk are likely to cause complications in the future. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- In your eagerness to start something new, you might not take under consideration all the ramifications. Don’t get in over your head.

Colo. massacre suspect mum as he heads to court
By GILLIAN FLACCUS and NICHOLAS RICCARDI Associated Press AURORA, Colo. — As the suspected gunman in the Colorado theater massacre heads to his first court appearance, authorities have disclosed that he is refusing to cooperate and that it could take months to learn what prompted the horrific attack on midnight moviegoers at a Batman film premiere. James Holmes has been held in solitary confinement at an Arapahoe County detention facility but will be moved today to a next-door courtroom for a 9:30 a.m. MDT hearing, where the charges against him of suspicion of first degree murder will be read. Holmes has been assigned a public defender and Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said that the 24-year-old former doctoral student has “lawyered up” since his arrest early Friday, following the shooting at an Aurora theater that left 12 dead and 58 wounded, some critically. “He’s not talking to us,” the chief said. Holmes has been held without bond at the lockup in Centennial, Colo., about 13 miles from the Aurora theater. He will be advised of the charges against him, and he could also face additional counts of aggravated assault and weapons violations. On Sunday, officials at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus were looking into whether Holmes used his position in a graduate program to collect hazardous materials, but school officials weren’t saying whether they knew he was anything more than a hard-working student. Police have said that Holmes began buying guns at Denver-

area stores nearly two months before Friday’s shooting and that he received at least 50 packages in four months at his home and at school. While the university disclosed that it was cooperating with police in the case, that disclosure was one of the few it has made three days after the massacre. It remained unclear whether Holmes’ professors and other students at his 35-student Ph.D. program noticed anything unusual about his behavior. His reasons for quitting the program in June, just a year into the five- to seven-year program, also remained a mystery. Holmes recently took an intense, three-part oral exam that marks the end of the first year. Those who do well continue with their studies and shift to full-time research, while those who don’t do well meet with advisers and discuss their options, including retaking the exam. University officials would not say if he passed, citing privacy concerns. The university said Holmes gave no reason for his withdrawal, a decision he made in June. Holmes was not allowed access from the institution after his withdrawal, which was “standard operating procedure” because he was no longer affiliated with the school, said Jacque Montgomery, a spokeswoman for the medical school. Holmes had no contact with university police, she said. The university declined to release any details of his academic record, citing privacy concerns, and at least two dozen professors and other staff declined to speak with The Associated Press. Some said they were instructed not to talk publicly about Holmes in a blanket email sent to university employees. Montgomery said police have told the school to not talk about Holmes. The university took down the website for its graduate neuroscience program on Saturday. Amid the continuing investigation of Holmes and his background, Sunday was a day for healing and remembrance in Aurora, with the community holding a prayer vigil and with President Barack Obama arriving to visit with families of the victims. Obama said he told the families that “all of America and much of the world is thinking about them.” He met with them at the University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora, which treated 23 of the people injured in the mass shooting; 10 remain there, seven hurt critically. Congregations across Colorado prayed for the shooting victims and their relatives. Elderly churchgoers at an aging Presbyterian church within walking distance near Holmes’ apartment joined in prayer, though none had ever met him.
