LIMA — Allen County Agricultural Society members honored the 2012 Hall of Fame inductee and saw this year’s Allen County Fair Royal Court crowned during the annual fair press dinner Thursday at the fairgrounds. Charles “Chuck” Faulder was this year’s Hall of Fame inductee. Faulder served the society as treasurer for 24 years from 1985-2008. When Faulder took over, the budget for the society was considerably less than $1 million and all bookkeeping was done by hand. At the end of his tenure, Faulder was responsible for a budget topping $2 million and had computerized all records with off-site backups and was able to accept credit cards sales for everything Nancy Spencer photos from tickets to trophies.

US nuns consider response to Vatican censure
By JIM SALTER and RACHEL ZOLL The Associated Press in Congress commending the sisters for their service to the country. A spokeswoman for the nuns group said Thursday they had received more than 1,500 cards from supporters from around the world, some of which were placed on tables at the meeting. “Thank you for all you do to support the needy and underserved in our world,” read one. “Have courage! It doesn’t have to be this way,” read another. The Vatican orthodoxy watchdog, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, began its review of the organization in 2008, following years of complaints from theological conservatives that the nuns group had become secular and political while abandoning traditional faith. After the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s, many religious sisters shed their habits and traditional roles as they sought to more fully engage the modern world. The nuns focused increasingly on Catholic social justice teaching, such as fighting poverty and advocating for civil rights, but insisted they had kept prayer and Christ central to their work. Vatican investigators praised the nuns’ humanitarian efforts but said the conference had “serious doctrinal problems” and promoted “certain radical feminist themes” that undermine

ST. LOUIS — At a pivotal national meeting, members of the largest group for American nuns have been weighing whether they should accept or challenge a Vatican order to reform. The national assembly is the first since a Vatican review concluded the Roman Catholic sisters had tolerated dissent about the all-male priesthood, birth control and homosexuality, while remaining nearly silent in the fight against abortion. Officials at the Holy See want a full-scale overhaul of the organization under the authority of U.S. bishops. The 900 sisters at this week’s meeting in St. Louis “are asking God to show us to the next best step we can take,” said Sister Mary Waskowiak, director of development for the Mercy International Association in Burlingame, Calif. The executives of the group have called the Vatican report flawed. The Leadership Conference of Women Religious represents about 80 percent of the 57,000 American sisters. The rebuke from the Holy See, issued in April, prompted an outpouring of support for the sisters nationwide, including parish vigils, protests outside the Vatican embassy in Washington and a resolution

Catholic teaching. Seattle Archbishop Peter Sartain has been appointed along with two other American bishops to oversee rewriting the groups’ statutes, reviewing its plans and programs and ensuring the group properly follows Catholic ritual. One part of the Vatican censure focused on the speakers the nuns had selected for their annual meetings. The keynote address this year was from a woman who described herself as a futurist who leads a movement called “conscious evolution.” The sisters face a limited range of options for how they can respond to the assessment from Rome, given that their organization was created by the Vatican. The president of the nuns group, Sister Pat Farrell, is expected to make an announcement Friday as the meeting ends. She has indicated in her public remarks this week that the sisters may not formulate a definitive response. Sister Mary Rose, a Connecticut nun for 51 years, believes the nuns can resolve their disagreements with church leaders. “I think we probably have differing perspectives. We come from a lived experience that is different,” she said. “But I think we have the same goal in mind, which is the following of Jesus Christ. I’m convinced the spirit will lead all of us.”

Nearly 150,000 Syrian refugees seek UN help
By JOHN HEILPRIN The Associated Press GENEVA — A rising tide of civilians fleeing Syria’s violence is hitting four neighboring countries where almost 150,000 are being helped in camps run by the U.N. refugee agency and its partners, officials said today. That figure counts only Syrians who have registered or are in the process of registering as refugees. Officials acknowledge the real number of Syrian refugees is likely above 200,000 since tens of thousands are believed to have not yet registered with authorities. In late June, U.N. agencies estimated they would need $193 million to help 185,000 refugees from Syria by the end of 2012. Spokesman Adrian Edwards told reporters today in Geneva that the U.N. By MATTHEW LEE The Associated Press refugee agency’s offices in Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and Iraq have all reported big increases this week in the number of registrants. As of Thursday night, the agency had taken note of 146,667 such people — 50,227 in Turkey, 45,869 in Jordan, 36,841 in Lebanon and 13,730 in Iraq. “In several countries, we know there to be (additional) substantial refugee numbers, but these people have not yet registered,” Edwards said. There were more than 6,000 new arrivals in Turkey this week alone, many from the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo and surrounding villages, while others came from Idlib and Latakia. “Where fighting happens, we tend to see the consequences,” he added. Turkey has nine sites, including a new camp this week at Akcakale, for its to complement existing penalties, which have targeted Assad’s inner circle, including his entire Cabinet, along with Iranian individuals and entities that have been providing support to the regime. They come as Clinton prepares for Saturday’s discussions in Istanbul that will focus on forming a “common operational picture” with the Turks and Syrians to guide a democratic transition in post-Assad Syria, the officials said. Clinton will also boost humanitarian relief to tens of thousands of Syrians fleeing the country, they said. In Istanbul, Clinton is also expected to announce an additional $5.5 million in U.S. humanitarian aid. The new assistance will bring the total U.S. aid to $82 million since the crisis began 17 months ago. Coordinating support for the Syrian opposition will be a key agenda item, the officials said, adding that Clinton was keen to understand the Turkish position as conditions inside Syria deteriorate with

US prepares new sanctions on Assad regime

fast-growing refugee population, of which 72 percent is women and children. It has notified U.N. and other aid officials that it intends to double its capacity by building enough camps to hold 100,000 refugees. Jordan, meanwhile, is straining to build more camps to accommodate refugees from Syria’s south, where the uprising against President Bashar Assad’s government began in March 2011. An estimated 4,000 Syrians arrived in Jordan on one recent night alone. The International Organization for Migration said in a report today that more than 1,100 third-country nationals have sought its help to return home from Damascus and that 25 embassies — including those of Indonesia, Sudan and Yemen — have asked it to arrange travel out of Syria for another 3,011 people.

ACCRA, Ghana — The Obama administration is readying new sanctions on Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime and its allies as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton heads to Turkey for weekend talks with top Turkish officials and Syrian opposition activists. Senior U.S. officials traveling with Clinton as she wraps up a nine-nation Africa tour in Ghana and Benin before flying to Turkey today said the fresh sanctions aimed at hastening Assad’s ouster were imminent. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to preview the move. The sanctions are expected

rebel forces gaining strength and effectiveness. The United States and its western allies are stopping short of providing lethal assistance to the opposition, but it has become an open secret that several Arab countries are supplying weapons and ammunition. The officials said Clinton would take what she learns in Istanbul from the Turks and the Syrian activists she meets and begin to discuss points of agreement with European foreign ministers in the coming days in preparation for a new Friends of Syria meeting to be held in at an as-yet unscheduled date in late August or early September. In Syria, government forces were fighting rebels outside Damascus and in the northern city of Aleppo as civilians continued to flee into Turkey to escape the civil war. The government of Britain said today it was offering the rebels nearly $8 million in assistance to pay for communications equipment and medical supplies. Meanwhile, in New York diplomats at the United Nations were looking for someone to replace Kofi Annan, a former U.N. chief, who has abandoned his effort to find a peace agreement in Syria and is leaving by the end of the month.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Bond has been set at $250,000 for an Ohio man accused of carrying a loaded gun, ammunition and knives into a showing of the latest Batman movie last weekend. Bond was set Thursday in Cleveland for 37-yearold Scott A. Smith of North Ridgeville at his initial court appearance. Another hearing is scheduled for Tuesday on the charges, which include carrying concealed weapons and having weapons under disability. Police say Smith carried the weapons into a Westlake theater before a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” Saturday night. An off-duty police officer working security searched his bag and found the weapons. Smith’s attorney said his client meant no harm, and had the weapons for protection in case someone tried to copy last month’s deadly Colorado theater shooting.

New tool lets Ohio voters update addresses online
By KANTELE FRANKO Associated Press COLUMBUS — A new tool unveiled Thursday in the presidential battleground of Ohio allows registered voters to update their addresses online, an option that was included in a contentious election law but later stripped. The option available through Secretary of State Jon Husted’s website should improve registration accuracy and security, save money by reducing the workload at elections offices and help voters meet the requirement of being registered at their current addresses 30 days before an election, Husted said. It also could help voters cast regular ballots instead of provisional ballots, which must be verified for eligibility, because outdated addresses are the most common reason people use provisional ballots, he said. His office estimated 130,000 voters used provisional ballots in the 2008 presidential election because of address problems. About 660 voters used the website to update their addresses in the first five hours after Husted’s announcement, his office said. The Ohio Association of Election Officials, a bipartisan group representing county elections board members and directors, praised the online option. “It is something numerous voters have expressed an interest in, and I’m pleased to see it in place,” Llyn McCoy, the association’s president, said in a statement. “While not fullblown online registration, today’s announcement moves us farther down the path to complete automation.” Husted said he considers the online process, developed internally by his office, to be more secure and more accurate than the existing change-of-address paper process. “People will still have the same ability to do this as they always have through the paper system, but this, we believe, will be a much more convenient process,” he said. Ten other states have similar provisions, Husted said. Some lawmakers want Ohio to take it a step further by allowing not just updates but full voter registration to be completed online. “I applaud the Secretary of State’s attempt to make it easier for registered voters to update their registration information, hopefully resulting in fewer provisional ballots,” Democratic state Rep. Tracy Maxwell Heard of Columbus. Ohio voters seeking to change an address online will have to provide four pieces

He didn’t specify any allegations, saying only that the inquiry does not involve bribery. Earlier this year, another lawmaker was prosecuted on bribery and other charges. Soon after, Luckie released his own statement reiterating that the investigation “is not related in any way to the ongoing investigation into the conduct of any other state official related to bribery.” “I assure my constituents that I have not been involved in any of that conduct, nor am I the target of said investigation,” the Dayton Democrat said. “We have, however, discovered errors on some reports that are currently being addressed.” Luckie said he takes such matters seriously and that his team is conducting a full review into the reports. He didn’t say what type of reports had errors. “Out of respect for the process, I will not be addressing any questions until my team has completed their analysis,” he said. He and his Columbus attorney, Lloyd Pierre-Louis, did not return repeated calls for

of information — last name, driver’s license number, date of birth and final four digits of their Social Security number — that match the information shared in the state voter registration database and records for the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Voters who can’t meet that requirement can use the website to print a registration or changeof-address form to submit by mail. Oct. 9 is the voter registration deadline for Ohio’s next major election. Residents will cast ballots Nov. 6 in one of the country’s most contested U.S. Senate races and help choose the president.

GREENFIELD (AP) — A police chief in southern Ohio is defending an officer for shooting an emaciated dog twice in the head, though he says it wasn’t an ideal situation. WCMH-TV reports Greenfield police Chief Tim Hester says the officer shot the 18-year-old mixed-breed dog because he felt it was the humane thing to do. The station reports the officer shot the dog Aug. 3 after visiting the dog’s owners and asking them to take the sick dog to a veterinarian. The officer says they wanted the dog to die naturally. Hester says the owners then gave the officer permission to kill the dog, though they deny this. The officer shot the dog twice. Hester says he’s comfortable with the officer’s report of events, though it wasn’t an ideal situation. The United States has won more medals (2,189) at the Summer Games than any other country.

comment Thursday. FBI spokesman Todd Lindgren, based in Cincinnati, said that he could not confirm or deny whether the agency was investigating Luckie. Before taking office, Luckie was on the Dayton Public School Board from 1996 to 2006. He now serves on the powerful state controlling board, which oversees capital and operating expenditures by Ohio agencies and has authority to approve or vote down any other state financial activities. Luckie also serves on the education and insurance committees. He is running for re-election against Republican Jeff Wellbaum of Kettering. Keary McCarthy, a spokesman for House Democrats, said leaders spoke to Luckie on Thursday and said that he still plans on running for office. He said that leadership was looking at its options, but that “it’s just too early to make any firm determinations.” “We really don’t have much information,” he said. The inquiry comes on the heels of an investigation targeting another state representative, who has since resigned and has been sentenced to three years in prison. W. Carlton Weddington, a Columbus Democrat, pleaded guilty in June to charges of bribery, election falsification and filing a false financial disclosure statement after authorities said he took trips and cash in exchange for taking steps to introduce legislation. Weddington resigned from office and surrendered to authorities in March.

“About the time we can make the ends meet, somebody moves the ends.” — President Herbert Hoover (1874-1964)

Candidates bemoan attack ads — but both benefit
By JULIE PACE and DAVID ESPO Associated Press PUEBLO, Colo. — Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama both deplored the pervasive presence of televised attack ads in the race for the White House on Thursday, though neither acknowledged being helped as well as harmed. Each blamed his foe. Romney went first, saying of the president’s campaign, “They just blast ahead” with ads that have been judged false by independent fact checkers. “I don’t know whatever happened to a campaign of ‘hope and change,”’ he said, a mocking reference to the spirit of optimism that Obama evoked during his successful run for the White House in 2008. Obama ignored the slap. He told an audience in Colorado that “over the next three months, you will see more negative ads,” and he suggested the blame lies with outside groups backing his rival. “I mean, these super PACs, these guys are writing $10 million checks and giving them to Mr. Romney’s supporters,” he said. Obama spoke as his own campaign unleashed yet another in the attack ad category, this one questioning whether there was ever a year in which Romney paid no federal taxes. ‘We don’t know,” the announcer says, then quickly adds that Romney once “personally approved over $70 million in fictional losses to the IRS as part of ... one of the largest tax avoidance schemes in history.” Romney broached the subject two days after the release of a searing ad in which a former steelworker appears to suggest that he and Bain Capital, the private equity firm he owned, might bear some responsibility for the man’s wife’s death from cancer. The ad is the work of Priorities USA Action, a group that supports Obama, and it has been judged inaccurate by independent fact checkers and attacked vociferously by aides to the Republican presidential challenger. The back and forth took place as Romney looked ahead to a bus tour through four states in as many days, ending next Tuesday in Ohio. The itinerary renewed speculation that the trip might culminate in the announcement that the state’s Sen. Rob Portman would be the named vice presidential running mate on the Republican ticket. Obama barnstormed through battleground Colorado more like a candidate for statewide office than for the White House, with stops in several parts of the state over two days. After saying in Denver that Romney advocated policies on women’s issues straight from the 1950s, he switched topics to alternative energy. Campaigning in Pueblo, the president noted that his rival wants to end a tax credit that benefits the producers of wind energy, an industry that Obama said supports about 5,000 jobs in Colorado and as many as 37,000 nationwide. At issue is a tax credit that was originally signed into law 20 years ago by President George H.W. Bush, a Republican, and has generally enjoyed bipartisan support in the years since. Legislation headed for the Senate floor would renew the tax break for existing facilities for one year, and also allow facilities that begin construction before the end of 2013 to qualify for a 10-year credit. The estimated cost is $12.1 billion over a decade, and the tax break has drawn criticism from some conservatives in Congress as a waste. Romney sides with the critics, and in March he wrote, “In place of real energy, Obama has focused on an imaginary world where government-subsidized windmills and solar panels could power the economy. This vision has failed.” In the clash over television advertising, Romney appeared to lump together commercials aired by Obama’s campaign with those aired by Priorities Action USA, the group that supports him. In his remarks to conservative radio show host Bill Bennett, Romney aides said, he was speaking about the Priorities Action USA commercial when he attacked the president’s campaign.

DEAR EDITOR: I want to congratulate Families United for the special-needs swim event that took place Aug. 1 at the Delphos Municipal Swimming Pool. The event was a huge success. Your diligent effort and attitude for this community showed when all who attended had a nice day of fun in the sun. There was no way this event was not going to take place, as a group you are far superior and much stronger than one individual.

During this process, we have become friends and colleagues. You can count on the City of Delphos to be by your side every step of the way in the future. “You make a living by what you get.

aid applications fall by 6,000
WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits fell by 6,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 361,000, a level consistent with modest gains in hiring. The Labor Department said Thursday that the less volatile four-week average rose by 2,250 to 368,250 in the week that ended Aug. 4. Weekly applications bounced around in July, skewed by the difficulty of accounting for temporary summertime layoffs in the auto industry. The seasonal distortions had faded by last week. Applications measure the pace of layoffs. When they consistently fall below 375,000, it typically suggests hiring is strong enough to lower the unemployment rate. Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said fewer unemployment applications suggest that job market is fairly stable. “The pick-up in jobs growth in July may therefore be sustained in August,” Dales said. The economy added 163,000 jobs in July, the biggest increase since February. From April through June, employers had created a lackluster 73,000 jobs a month, not enough to keep up with a rising population. “The improvement in jobless claims has been a most welcome development,” said Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at BTIG. But he noted that unemployment claims were still high considering the recession ended more than three years ago. Claims averaged 328,000 in November 2004, three years after the 2001 recession: “So clearly more work needs to be done,” he says. The total number of people receiving some kind of benefits also fell. Nearly 5.8 million received aid in the week that ended July 21, the most recent data available. That’s 200,000 less than a week earlier. Despite the improvement in hiring in July, the unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3 percent from 8.2 percent in June. Most economists say growth must be stronger to generate enough jobs to lower unemployment. The economy grew at an annual rate of 1.5 percent from April through June, down from 2 percent in the first quarter and 4.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011. In a hopeful sign, U.S. employers posted the most job openings in four years in June. The Labor Department said this week that job openings rose to a seasonally adjusted 3.8 million in June from 3.7 million in May. That’s the most since July 2008. Layoffs fell. A rise in openings could signal better hiring in the coming months. It typically takes one to three months to fill a job. Even with the increase, hiring is competitive. There were 12.7 million unemployed people in June, or an average of 3.4 unemployed people for each job. U.S. companies got a bit more out of their workers in the spring. Their productivity grew at a slim 1.6 percent annualized rate in the AprilJune quarter, signaling that employers may have to hire more if orders pick up.

Consumer finance agency sets mortgage protections
By DANIEL WAGNER AP Business Writer WASHINGTON — The government’s consumer lending watchdog proposed new rules today aimed at protecting homeowners from unexpected costs and shoddy service by companies that collect their monthly mortgage payments. Mortgage servicing companies would be required to provide clear monthly billing statements, warn borrowers before interest rate hikes and actively help them avoid foreclosure under the proposal by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The rules also require companies to credit people’s payments promptly, swiftly correct errors and keep better internal records. “The major failures in this industry demonstrate that all servicers need to meet basic standards of good customer service,” CFPB Director Richard Cordray said in a call with reporters. He said the proposal reflects “two basic, common-sense standards — no surprises and no runarounds.” Mortgage servicers are central players in the nationwide housing crisis because they are responsible for foreclosing on homes when people fail to make payments. They have faced withering criticism for practices including charging excessive fees, foreclosing without completing the required paperwork and failing to help people stay in their homes by changing their loan terms. Under the rules, companies would be required to provide billing statements that explain how much of a payment is going to pay down principal, how much to interest and how much to fees. If an interest rate was set to adjust, the borrower would receive an early estimate of the new payment amount. That would allow people to consider refinancing if they don’t like the new rates. The rules also help guarantee that borrowers aren’t forced to pay excessively premiums on homeowners’ insurance that servicers require them to carry. In the past, servicers tacked on insurance when they believed someone’s coverage had lapsed. The premiums could be several times bigger than on a typical policy. The rules would require servicers to notify borrowers twice before charging them for insurance. They would have to cancel the insurance within 15 days if borrowers proved that they already had coverage. The new agency has focused on mortgage servicers in part because borrowers can’t shop around and choose a mortgage servicer. Instead, servicers buy the right to collect payments from the original lenders. Servicing rights can be lucrative because they permit servicers to collect fees, for example on late payments.

Air Force works to fill need for remote control drone pilots
By LOLITA C. BALDOR Associated Press WASHINGTON — Becoming a fighter pilot is still a hotly coveted goal at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. But slowly, a culture change is taking hold. Initially snubbed as second-class pilot-wannabes, the airmen who remotely control America’s arsenal of lethal drones are gaining stature and securing a permanent place in the Air Force. Drawn to the flashy drone strikes that have taken out terrorists including al-Qaida leader Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen to the terror group’s No. 2 strongman Abu Yahya al-Libi in Pakistan, airmen are beginning to target unmanned aircraft as their career of choice. It’s a far cry from the grumbling across the air corps a few years ago when Air Force leaders — desperate to meet the rapidly escalating demand for drones — began yanking fighter pilots out of their cockpits and placing them at the remote controls of unmanned Predators and Reapers. The shift is critical as the Air Force struggles to fill a shortfall of more than 300 drone pilots to meet the U.S. military’s enormous hunger for unmanned aircraft around the world. Some airmen are even volunteering to give up the exhilarating G-force ride in their F-16s for the desktop computer screens and joysticks that direct drones over battlefields thousands of miles away. The difference is often generational, but many pilots see drones as the future of air combat. Drone pilot Maj. Ted began his Air Force career as an F-16 pilot but shifted to flying drones and now says he won’t go back to flying a fighter jet. He said piloting a drone is empowering because every day, it has a direct impact supporting U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The U.S. military doesn’t allow drone pilots to make their full names public because of concerns the pilots could be targeted. Asked which is harder to do — manned or unmanned flight — he said that at times, he’s been more overcome by the torrent of information pouring in during a drone flight than he was in the cockpit. “In an F-16, to form a three dimensional picture, I look outside,” said Ted, who flew F-16s for about four years before switching to armed Reapers, a drone that can carry Hellfire missiles and laser-guided bombs. “In an aircraft, you can look outside, and you know how high you are from the ground. You know that the guys I am supporting are over there and the bad guys are over there,” he said. “But here I have a picture, and it shows me turning left, but I don’t feel myself turning. I don’t feel the speed; I can’t look quickly and see where everybody’s at.” Instead, he said, “I have multiple computer screens showing two-dimensional information that I have to then mentally build that picture.”

Bolt leads Jamaican sweep of 200-meter
By JAY COHEN The Associated Press LONDON — Five things to know about Thursday, Day 13 of the London Olympics: —Still the man: Bolt leads Jamaican sweep in 200-meter final. —Solo saves the day as American women rack up medals. —U.S. teenager wins first middleweight gold in women’s boxing —U.S. takes top two spots in decathlon, men’s triple jump. —Pistorius, South Africa get another chance in relay final. ——— Usain Bolt greeted the excited crowd with a royal wave when he was introduced Thursday night. Turns out the sprint king was also waving goodbye to his competition. Bolt blew away the field in the 200-meter final, easing up as he crossed the finish line in 19.32 seconds to become the only man with two Olympic titles in the event. With camera flashes dotting the seats throughout Olympic Stadium, Bolt repeated the 100-200 double he produced at the Beijing Games, leading a Jamaican sweep. Training partner and pal Yohan Blake was second in 19.44 and Warren Weir got the bronze in 19.84, nearly a half-second behind the champion. “I’ve done something that no one has done before, which is defend my double title. Back-toback for me,” Bolt said. “I would say I’m the greatest.” The 6-5 Bolt celebrated with a couple push-ups and also grabbed a camera from someone in the photographers’ well and trained it at the group who were clicking away. — Bolt’s victory dominated the track and field schedule but American women were all over the London Games — helping the U.S. run its lead in the medals table to 90-80 over China. Carli Lloyd scored in each half, Hope Solo made a couple of big stops and the women’s soccer team won its third straight Olympic gold medal, beating Japan 2-1 in a rematch of last year’s World Cup final and avenging the most painful loss in its history. Before 80,203 at Wembley Stadium, a record crowd for a women’s soccer game at the Olympics, the teams put on a back-and-forth, don’t-turn-yourhead showcase, proving again that these are the two premier teams in the world. Yuki Ogimi scored in the 63rd minute but the U.S. held on for the win behind Solo’s solid performance in net. — American teenager Claressa Shields danced, brawled and even stuck out her tongue. She also managed to win the first middleweight gold medal in women’s Olympic boxing. The 17-year-old Shields, from Flint, Mich., was too much for Russian opponent Nadezda Torlopova, posting a 19-12 victory in the final. “This was something I wanted for a long time, even when boxing wasn’t going all right, even when my life wasn’t going all right,” said Shields, who found sanctuary in a boxing gym during a rough childhood. “All I wanted was a gold medal and I kept working towards it, even when people were saying I couldn’t do it. I’m too young. I couldn’t do it. There were girls who were going to beat me because of better experience, more experience. I proved them all wrong.” — Maggie Steffens scored five times and the U.S. women’s water polo team beat Spain 8-5 to take the Olympic tournament for the first time. The American volleyball squad beat South Korea in straight sets and will go for its first indoor women’s gold when it faces Brazil on Saturday in a rematch of the 2008 final. — Coach Geno Auriemma and the basketball team also moved into the gold-medal match one day after Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings won an all-American final in beach volleyball. — Not to be outdone, the American men took the top two spots in the men’s decathlon (Ashton Eaton and Trey Hardee) and triple jump (Christian Taylor and Will Claye), raising the U.S. track and field total with three days to go to 24 medals. The other big winner Thursday night was Kenya’s David Rudisha, who set a world record while winning the 800 meters in 1:40.91. Among the track finals on tap for today is the men’s 4x400meter relay, which took on added intrigue with Oscar Pistorius and South Africa making the field and a gutsy preliminary performance by Manteo Mitchell of the U.S. The man known as “Blade Runner” because of his carbonfiber prosthetics will get a chance to run for an Olympic medal after officials accepted South Africa’s protest over a collision and awarded an extra spot in the final. Pistorius already is the first amputee to compete on a Summer Games track. Mitchell was halfway through the opening lap of the relay heat when he felt something pop in his left leg. He managed to keep going and helped the Americans tie for first with the Bahamas in 2:58.87. A few hours later, doctors told him he had a broken leg. “I heard it and I felt it,” Mitchell told The Associated Press. “But I figured it’s what almost any person would’ve done in that situation.” The rest of the Olympic action Thursday:
a way to advance. Trailing early in the second half, Auriemma turned to his Olympic rookies and the group — led by Tina Charles and Lindsay Whalen — pressured Australia into turnovers and bad shots. That led to a pivotal scoring run in the third quarter of an 86-73 victory. The Americans, seeking a fifth straight gold medal, next play France in a matchup of unbeaten teams. It will be the first time the two teams have played in the Olympics. Lauren Jackson finished with 14 points for Australia. Edwige Lawson-Wade had 18 points to lead France to an 81-64 victory over Russia in the other semi. CYCLING - BMX Defending champion Maris Strombergs of Latvia eased into the semifinals after escaping an avalanche of crashes at the London Velopark. Strombergs was among eight riders who advanced after three qualifying runs. World champion Sam Willoughby of Australia had to complete two more runs before sealing his own spot in the semis. There were more than 20 crashes throughout the day. The London Olympic course, with its big jumps and tight corners, has proved to be one of the most difficult in the world. Time trial world champion Connor Fields of the United States was unbeaten after three runs and also qualified directly for the next round. SWIMMING Eva Risztov of Hungary led most of the way in a grueling open water marathon at Hyde Park, holding off a desperate bid to chase her down by American Haley Anderson. The big crowd was hoping for a gold medal from world champion Keri-anne Payne but the British swimmer finished fourth. Risztov beat Anderson by fourtenths of a second after nearly two hours of racing around The Serpentine. The winner climbed out of the water, smiling and looking fresh. She even flexed for the big crowd. Risztov retired from swimming after the 2004 Olympics, upset with her results and tired of the pool. She eventually decided to give open water a try and it sure worked out in a big way. Martina Grimaldi of Italy got the bronze in the 10-kilometer race. BEACH VOLLEYBALL Germany’s Julius Brink and Jonas Reckermann beat reigning world champions Alison and Emanuel of Brazil 23-21, 16-21, 16-14 in the men’s final. It was the first gold medal for a European team in a sport that has been dominated by the Brazilians and Americans. Brazil saved three match points to tie it after falling behind 14-11. But needing to win by two in the third set, Germany took a 15-14 lead and then won it when Emanuel’s spike landed just wide of the sideline. Janis Smedins and Martins Plavins of Latvia took the bronze. DIVING Chen Ruolin of China won the women’s 10-meter platform gold, easily defending her title from Beijing. Chen totaled 422.30 points during the five-dive final, winning by a 55.80point margin. She earlier won gold in the 10-meter synchronized and swept the platform events for the second consecutive games. China has won six out of seven diving gold medals with only the men’s platform remaining. Brittany Broben, a 16-year-old from Australia competing in her first Olympics, took the silver at 366.50. Pandelela Pamg of Malaysia was third. SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING Russia led the technical routine of

Reports: Dwight Howard headed to Lakers
The Associated Press The Los Angeles Lakers have a deal in place to acquire Dwight Howard from Orlando in a 4-team, 8-player trade also involving Denver and Philadelphia. The NBA has scheduled a conference call today with the four general managers to finish the deal, according to multiple reports. Citing unidentified sources, ESPN first reported the deal was in place. The Los Angeles Times, citing unidentified NBA executives, later confirmed the trade. The Denver Post confirmed the Nuggets’ end of the deal and Yahoo! Sports also confirmed the trade, both citing unidentified sources. A person with knowledge of the trade also confirmed the Denver portion of the deal to The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details have not been officially announced. Philadelphia would get Andrew Bynum from Los Angeles and Jason Richardson from Orlando, while Denver would get Andre Iguodala from the 76ers. Orlando would receive Arron Afflalo and Al Harrington from Denver, Nikola Vucevic and Moe Harkless from Philadelphia and lottery protected first-round picks from each of the three teams. Howard had asked for a trade to Brooklyn but Orlando failed to work out a deal with the Nets, opening the way for the Lakers to get the All-Star center. Howard averaged 20.6 points and 14.5 rebounds in 54 regularseason games for Orlando last sea-

Wizards add Sichting as assistant coach WASHINGTON — The Washington Wizards hired former NBA player and coach Jerry Sichting as an assistant coach Thursday. The 55-year-old Sichting played 10 seasons for five teams in the NBA and worked as an assistant coach for Minnesota and Golden State. With the Timberwolves for 11 seasons, Sichting worked under Wizards head coach Randy Wittman for two campaigns when Wittman held the same role in Minnesota. After his stint with the Warriors during the 2010-11 season, Sichting stepped in and served as the head coach for Martinsville (Ind.) High School, his alma mater. In July, the Wizards also hired former San Antonio Spurs assistant Don Newman. Bucks sign free agent C Przybilla MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks have signed free-agent center Joel Przybilla, maintaining an offseason push to beef up their frontcourt. The 7-1 Przybilla returns to Milwaukee for his second stint with the Bucks after beginning his career with the franchise. The ninth overall pick in the 2000 NBA draft by Houston, Przybilla was dealt to Milwaukee in a draft-night deal in exchange for Jason Collier and a future first-round pick. The 32-year-old Przybilla has averaged 4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 580 career games split between Milwaukee, Atlanta, Portland and Charlotte. Earlier this offseason, the Bucks added center Samuel Dalembert in a trade and drafted North Carolina power forward John Henson in the first round.

son. In eight seasons with the Magic, he averaged 18.4 points and 13.0 rebounds.

BASKETBALL The U.S. women’s team faced its first challenge of the Olympics and found

the team event — as expected. Russia has won this event at the past three Olympics. Featuring Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina, the pair that won the duet Tuesday, it collected a near-perfect 98.1 points. The favorites competed to a Russian dance routine composed by Denis Garnizov, as Prince William’s wife, Kate, looked on from the crowd. China was next with 97.0 points and Spain finished third with 96.2 points. Medals will be handed out after Friday’s free routines, with points from both days added up. CANOE SPRINT The quartet of Tate Smith, Dave Smith, Murray Stewart and Jacob Clear gave Australia a lift with a surprising wire-to-wire win in the men’s 1,000meter K-4. It was Australia’s first team gold in canoe sprint — and took its overall tally in London to six after wins by cyclist Anna Meares, 100-meter hurdler Sally Pearson and sailors Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen in the past three days. Germany collected two more victories, with Tina Dietze and Franziska Weber taking the women’s 500-meter K-2 and Peter Kretschmer and Kurt Kuschela winning the men’s double canoe sprint 1,000. Danuta Kozak won her second gold of the regatta for Hungary, grabbing the top spot in the women’s single kayak 500-meter sprint. GYMNASTICS - RHYTHMIC Daria Dmitrieva upstaged fellow Russian Evgeniya Kanaeva, taking advantage of the defending Olympic champion’s mistake in her hoop routine to top the standings halfway through individual qualifying. With 57.80 points, Dmitrieva is 0.175 points ahead of Kanaeva going into today’s qualifying session with the ribbon and clubs. Liubou Charkashnya of Belarus was third. Russia continued its big day in group qualifying, taking the lead over 3-time world champion Italy. Russia, seeking its fourth straight Olympic title, scored 28.375 points for its routine with five balls, while Italy was .275 points behind. TAEKWONDO American fighter Paige McPherson knocked out British world champion Sarah Stevenson in the first round of the women’s 67-kilogram division at the London Olympics. The 21-year-old McPherson controlled the fight from the start and scored first after nailing Stevenson with a head kick. Stevenson won a bronze at the Beijing Olympics in a heavier weight category. Stevenson injured her knee in February and has not fought in any major competitions since but was still picked for the Olympic team by a selection panel that included her husband. There will be no taekwondo gold for the Lopez family at the London Olympics. And for the first time since the Korean martial art became a full medal sport at the games, there might not be any medal at all — hardly the result the long-time flag bearers for the sport in the United States came to the Olympics expecting. Two-time Olympic champion Steven Lopez of the U.S. lost his first-round match in London TOday, beaten 3-2 by Ramin Azizov of Azerbaijan, the No. 1 seed in the men’s under-80-kilogram tournament. Lopez could still make the medal round, depending on how Azizov advances through the bracket. But the best he can hope for now is bronze, which is what he left the Beijing Games with as well. The Lopez family has won five medals at the Olympics — gold for Steven in 2000 and 2004, a silver for Mark Lopez at Beijing in 2008 and bronzes for Steven and Diana four years ago as well.

CARDINALS 3, GIANTS 1 ST. LOUIS — Adam Wainwright pitched seven innings and St. Louis bounced back from a blowout to beat San Francisco. Carlos Beltran hit his 27th homer for the Cardinals, who were trounced by the Giants 15-0 the previous night. St. Louis has won seven of its last 10. Wainwright (10-10) allowed one run and five hits, striking out seven and walking three. He has given up two earned runs or fewer in his last five starts. Jason Motte pitched the ninth for his 25th save. Beltran, who leads the NL with 80 RBIs, hit a 2-run homer off Madison Bumgarner (12-7) in the first. Bumgarner has given up 18 home runs — 15 on the road. Bumgarner gave up three runs and three hits and struck out seven in six innings. Jon Jay went 2-for-3 and reached base three times for St. Louis, which completed a 7-game homestand with a 5-2 mark. NATIONALS 5, ASTROS 0 HOUSTON — Michael Morse homered twice and Jordan Zimmermann matched his career high with 11 strikeouts as Washington completed a 4-game sweep. Morse drove in three runs and extended his hitting streak to a career-best 18 games, the longest active streak in the majors after Miami’s Jose Reyes was stopped at 26 games earlier in the day. Zimmermann (9-6) pitched six innings of 3-hit ball before Michael Gonzalez, Sean Burnett and Drew Storen completed the five-hitter, Washington’s seventh shutout this season. The NL East-leading Nationals have won six straight and own baseball’s best record at 69-43. Adam LaRoche drove in a run in the fourth before a sacrifice fly by Morse made it 2-0. Morse’s towering shot to left made it 3-0 in the sixth. He sent his second home run the opposite way in the eighth for his fourth career multihomer game. It was the 11th time this season the Astros were shut out and the first since July 20. Lucas Harrell (9-8) yielded five hits and two runs with five walks in five innings as Houston dropped its fifth straight. CUBS 5, REDS 3 CHICAGO — Alfonso Soriano hit a go-ahead homer in the eighth inning and Chicago snapped an 8-game losing streak on a rainsoaked night. With the score tied at 3, Reds reliever Sean Marshall (4-4) walked Anthony Rizzo. Just as the skies cleared up, Soriano cracked a 2-run shot to center field off Logan Ondrusek. Shawn Camp (3-5) pitched a perfect eighth for the win and Carlos Marmol worked the ninth for his 14th save in 16 chances. Todd Frazier and Zack Cozart homered for Cincinnati after the start was delayed by rain for 1 hour, 20 minutes. The NL Central leaders lost their fifth straight but remained 2 1/2 games ahead of second-place Pittsburgh. AL Capsules DETROIT — Mark Teixeira and Eric Chavez hit solo home runs on consecutive pitches in the eighth inning to put New York ahead and the Yankees held on to beat Detroit 4-3 on Thursday. Rafael Soriano escaped a firstand-third, no-outs jam in the ninth for his 27th save in 29 chances. Clay Rapada (3-0) got the last two outs with one on in the seventh inning. Joaquin Benoit (1-3) retired the first batter in the eighth before Teixeira and Chavez connected, the eighth time the Yankees have hit consecutive homers this season. Teixeira hit his 21st, Chavez his ninth. Benoit has given up nine hits — seven for homers — in 10 games since the All-Star break. RAYS 7, BLUE JAYS 1 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Matt Moore pitched six innings and Jose Lobaton drove in three runs as Tampa Bay completed the 3-game sweep. Tampa Bay has won 16 straight series against Toronto at Tropicana Field. The Rays have won 6-of-8 overall while the Blue Jays have lost 15 out of 19. Moore (9-7) gave up one run and two hits, retiring 14 straight batters during one stretch. He won his third straight start, striking out six and walking two. The rookie left-hander is 8-2 with a 2.92 ERA since the end of May. Three Rays relievers finished the combined 3-hitter. Evan Longoria drove in two runs and had three hits. Jeff Keppinger had three of Tampa Bay’s 13 hits. Henderson Alvarez (7-9) gave up 11 hits in 4 2/3 innings. INDIANS 5, RED SOX 3 CLEVELAND — Ubaldo Jimenez struck out a season-high 10 for his first win in more than a month and Cleveland handed Boston its seventh loss in nine games. Jimenez (9-11) allowed three runs over six innings as Cleveland won its second straight after losing 11 in a row. He had been 0-4 with an 8.41 ERA in five starts since beating Tampa Bay on July 7. Jason Donald hit a leadoff homer against Felix Doubront (10-6) and drove in two runs for the Indians, who took a 4-3 lead with a 3-run fifth. Chris Perez earned his 30th save for Cleveland, which fired pitching coach Scott Radinsky before the game. Perez pitched a perfect ninth after blowing saves Sunday and Tuesday, allowing eight runs over 1 1/3 innings in those two appearances. The Indians improved to 24-13 in series openers, second to the New York Yankees’ 24-12. Adrian Gonzalez hit a 2-run homer for Boston. ROYALS 8, ORIOLES 2 BALTIMORE — Billy Butler came within a single of hitting for the cycle and Kansas City ended Baltimore’s 5-game winning streak. Butler homered in a 4-run first inning, doubled in the third and tripled in the fifth. Needing only a single to become the first Kansas City player to complete the cycle since George Brett in 1990, Butler struck out in the seventh and again the ninth. He finished with three RBIs and scored three runs. Butler is 11-for-24 (.458) with three homers and five RBIs in six games against Baltimore this season. Manny Machado, the third overall pick in the 2010 draft, went 2-for-4 for the Orioles and played flawlessly at third base in his first game above the Double-A level. The 20-year-old grounded out in the second inning, tripled in the fifth, beat out a slow roller to second base in the seventh and popped out to end the game. Matt Wieters homered for the Orioles, who failed for a sixth time this season to extend a 5-game winning streak to six. Baltimore rookie Wei-Yin Chen (10-7) allowed a career-high seven runs and nine hits in 4 2/3 innings. Will Smith (3-4) gave up two runs and six hits in seven innings for the Royals, who have won four out of five.

The Associated Press NL Capsules NEW YORK — R.A. Dickey pitched a complete game for his NL-leading 15th win, stopping Jose Reyes’ 26-game hitting streak and helping New York end its nine-game home losing skid with a 6-1 win over Miami on Thursday. Dickey (15-3) gave up five hits, struck out 10 and walked none. Reyes went 0-for-4 against the All-Star knuckleballer, twice stranding runners on third base. His hitting streak was the longest of his career and the best in the majors this season. Andres Torres homered, tripled and doubled and drove in the goahead run after Reyes lost a popup in the sun. Torres homered off Josh Johnson (7-8) in the sixth and got an RBI triple in the eighth. Torres’ double in the fourth made it 2-1 and came two outs after David Wright’s shallow fly to left hit off Reyes’ upper body and skittered away for a double. Josh Thole hit two RBI singles and Wright added another for the Mets, who scored four runs with two outs in winning at home for the first time since July 7. Justin Ruggiano homered to tie it 1-all in the fourth. Johnson allowed eight hits and three runs in six innings.

Faith should be risky
death by stoning; they were sawed in two; they were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated— the world was not worthy of them.They wandered in deserts and mountains, living in caves and in holes in the ground.” Hebrews 11: 36-38

The Herald – 7

Faith should not be merely an adornment to a safe and comfortable life, but rather something that risks dramatically changing our life, that actually risks changing us to the core of our being. Most of us resist the urgings of God because we fear that we will have to utterly change our lives. Perhaps God will ask us to sell our possessions and give everything to the poor. Or perhaps God will ask us to give up our current lucrative jobs and go spread the gospel. In the realm of faith, impossible goals which risk everything are often called for. Abraham is considered our father in faith, not just because he believed in God, but because he was willing to pack up and leave his homeland on the basis of sheer faith. When God told Abraham that he and Sarah would have a son in their old age, Abraham believed. And when God asked him to sacrifice his son, Abraham never hesitated, taking his son to the top of a mountain in the land of Moriah, binding him to the wood for a burnt offering, and taking in his hand the knife with which he would slay his only son, before being stopped by God. (Genesis 22) So gird up your loins; faith is not for the faint of heart. “Some faced jeers and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment.They were put to

Modesty in an Immodest World

“On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment.” 1 Corinthians 12:22-24 We live in a world that is immodest in so many ways. Some athletes and performers boast immodestly of their skill and prowess in ways which would make the humbler athletes and performers of bygone eras blush. But, we are also immodest in a more literal and physical way, that is, by how much of our bodies we put on display. A hundred years ago, ladies and gentlemen considered it unseemly if they were not covered almost literally from the neck down. Now it seems that necklines and waistlines have plunged to the point where very little is left to the imagination. We seem to have no shame about displaying body parts that just a generation ago would

have been mortifying. We should consider what it means to live and dress modestly in an immodest world. In the midst of others flaunting their bodies and screaming from the rooftops how great they are, a modest person will truly stand out as a moral exemplar. —Christopher Simon

Most of the time, he denies that he was drunk, and we go silent for a few days, not speaking at all. I have stressed what he is putting at risk. It’s his job to prevent this with his customers, yet he’s somehow above it all. Last night was the last straw.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
SATURDAY, AUGUST 11, 2012 Both a rise in status and a marked improvement in your material affairs should be forthcoming in the months ahead. Whatever you do, don’t let up on your efforts, because the harder you try, the luckier you’ll be. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be optimistic regarding any new projects or activities. Unbeknownst to you, conditions are more favorable than they’ve been in a long time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -“Proceed, don’t postpone” should be your most meaningful objective right now, so focus all your energy and abilities on pursuing a goal until it becomes a “fait accompli.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You are likely to learn something of value from most of your important encounters. This newfound knowledge will serve you well down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- As long as someone is successfully managing a critical matter for you, don’t interfere. In this instance, he or she is likely to be serving your best interests better than you can. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Due in large part to the efforts of someone with whom you’re involved, a critical matter is being handled very successfully. It behooves you not to interfere. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A turn for the better might finally be forthcoming in a critical area where your personal efforts have been severely hampered. Start taking advantage of it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Be particularly nice to everyone you encounter, regardless of their stations in life. You’re in a cycle where something good can happen through new friendships. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don’t be too disturbed if early trends don’t look too promising. You’re apt to be a far better runner in the stretch than you will be getting out of the starting blocks. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Moving about freely gives you a sense of well-being both physically and mentally. Even if you don’t have anything special to do, get out of the house or workplace for a while. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- For some unknown reason, it’s apt to be one of those days when you are likely to be luckiest in involvements with material overtones. It might be OK to take a gamble on money matters. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Because of your remarkable resiliency and ability to bounce back, success is reasonably certain with most anything you personally control. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are likely to be able to draw upon resources that are not available to others, and that includes money. Get a jump on life now, while it’s favoring you.

Health care law tax hikes coming: Who pays?
By CONNIE CASS Associated Press WASHINGTON — Who gets thumped by higher taxes in President Barack Obama’s health care law? The wealthiest 2 percent of Americans will take the biggest hit, starting next year. And the pain will be shared by some who aren’t so well off — people swept up in a hodgepodge of smaller tax changes that will help finance health coverage for millions in need. For the vast majority of people, however, the health care law won’t mean sending more money to the IRS. And roughly 20 million people eventually will benefit from tax credits that start in 2014 to help them pay insurance premiums. A rundown of the most significant tax changes — and who pays: Who pays: About 2.5 million households — individuals making more than $200,000 per year, couples $250,000. How much: A 0.9 percent Medicare tax on wages above those threshold amounts; an additional 3.8 percent tax on investment income. Should raise $318 billion over 10 years. The lowdown: Together these are the biggest tax increase in the health care law. For those wealthy enough to owe it, the 3.8 percent investment tax comes on top of the existing 15 percent capital gains rate, which is set to rise to 20 percent next year unless Congress acts. Over the years, more and more people will be caught by the new taxes, because the adjusted gross income level that triggers them doesn’t rise with inflation. But fears that the investment tax will land on most folks’ home sales seem overblown — few sellers will be affected. A couple’s profit — not sales price — of up to $500,000 from the house they’ve been living in is exempt from taxes; only gains above that amount are taxed. When: 2013 Who pays: The 28 million people who visit tanning booths and beds each year — most of them women under 30, according to the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology. How much: A 10 percent tax on the price of tanning. Expected to raise $1.5 billion over 10 years. The lowdown: Tanning salons were singled out because of wide agreement among medical experts that baking under ultraviolet lights increases the risk of skin cancer. When: Took effect in 2010. Who pays: Insurance companies or businesses that provide plans with premiums of more than $10,200 per person or $27,500 per family, not including dental or vision coverage. Employees covered by these so-called “Cadillac” benefits probably will feel the pinch. How much: 40 percent excise tax on any amount of premium that exceeds the threshold. Expected to raise $111 billion over five years. The lowdown: The majority of health plans aren’t affected because they don’t cost enough: Workplace family coverage now averages about $15,000, including the portion paid by the employer, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation’s survey. But some middle-class workers, especially those with strong union contracts, have health plans that exceed the threshold. Also hit are corporate bigwigs whose employer-paid plans cover virtually all expenses and lots of perks, akin to tax-free income. Some employees will pay more for their share of insurance costs because the tax will get passed along to them. In other cases, businesses will trim benefits to bring their plans under the tax cutoff. Economists predict that many of the affected workers will get higher pay as a trade-off — but those raises would be subject to income tax. The tax will affect more workers as time goes by. It’s indexed for inflation, but rising health care prices will probably outpace that. When: 2018 Who pays: Insurers, drug companies, medical device makers. And some of their customers. How much: More than $165 billion over 10 years The lowdown: New taxes and fees target businesses expected to profit as more Americans get insurance. The companies will pass along these expenses as higher prices when they can. Companies that make or import brand-name prescription drugs paid a total of $2.5 billion in 2011, the first year for their fees. Insurance companies will share in paying an annual fee that starts at $8 billion for the first year. Companies that make medical equipment sold chiefly through doctors and hospitals, such as pacemakers, artificial hips and coronary stents, will pay a 2.3 percent excise tax on their sales, expected to total $1.7 billion in its first year. The device makers are lobbying for repeal, arguing that some small companies will have to lay off workers and reduce research spending. When: Began last year for drug companies; starts in 2013 for device makers, 2014 for insurance companies.

Higher gas prices expected after refinery fire
By JASON DEAREN Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — Analysts expect West Coast gas prices to rise beyond $4 a gallon after a fire knocked out a key section of one of the nation’s largest oil refineries. Meanwhile, the same U.S. Chemical Safety Board team that investigated the oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico was standing by with state and company inspectors waiting for structural and environmental tests to see if it was safe to enter the unit. In all, five separate investigations will be done to determine the cause and effects of the Monday night blaze at Chevron’s Richmond refinery. “This is an important accident in its own right, it was a large fire and has the potential to affect fuel supplies and prices,” said Dr. Daniel Horowitz, a member of the chemical board. The average price of regular gasoline jumped in California from $3.86 a gallon on Tuesday to $3.94 on Thursday, according to the website GasBuddy.com. Some experts expect the disruption in production to last for weeks and push prices beyond $4 a gallon. “It’ll depend on Chevron getting their facility repaired,” said Patrick DeHaan of GasBuddy.com. The Richmond refinery produces 16 percent of the region’s daily gasoline supply. The fire knocked out a unit that makes a specialized blend of cleaner burning gasoline that satisfies air quality laws in California, Oregon and Washington. Sean Comey, a spokesman

for Chevron, said myriad factors were pushing gas prices higher, not just the loss of one unit at the refinery. “There are a variety of economic conditions like rising crude and ethanol costs, which also affect what consumers pay at the pump,” he said. Comey said the refinery continues to produce gasoline, diesel and jet fuel but in reduced amounts. Experts said inventories of the cleaner burning gas already were low. With the refinery’s output in question for what could be weeks, analysts say prices could reach $4 a gallon as soon as today. “California has the cleanest-burning gas in the nation, so this is definitely a market disruption,” said Rayola Dougher, a senior economic adviser with the American Petroleum Institute.

Thousands to honor temple victims
By DINESH RAMDE Associated Press OAK CREEK, Wis. — Thousands of mourners are expected to pay their final respects today to six worshippers gunned down by a white supremacist at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee over the weekend. Organizers initially allocated two hours for a wake and visitation at a nearby high school, but they extended that by two hours to accommodate mourners who traveled from abroad and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder as a lastminute speaker. Other dignitaries expected to attend the funeral include Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan. The service will include prayers and hymns. Afterward, mourners plan to return to the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin where the shootings took place Sunday morning. There a series of priests will read the Sikh holy book from cover to cover in a traditional rite honoring the dead called “Akhand Path.” That process takes 48 hours. “We want to pay homage By RANDALL CHASE Associated Press to the spirits who are still in there,” said Harpreet Singh, a nephew of one of the victims. Federal investigators might never know for certain why 40-year-old Wade Michael Page chose to attack total strangers in a holy place. What they know is that the Army veteran opened fire with a 9 mm pistol at the temple, shortly before Sunday services were due to begin. Page killed five men and one woman, and injured two other men. Authorities say he then ambushed the first police officer who responded, shooting him nine times and leaving him in critical condition. A second officer then shot Page in the stomach from about 75 feet away, and Page took his own life with a shot to the head. The officer who was injured, Oak Creek Police Lt. Brian Murphy, was upgraded Thursday to satisfactory condition. The dead included Satwant Singh Kaleka, 65, the temple president who was shot as he tried to fend off Page with a butter knife. The other victims included: — Ranjit Singh, 49, and his 41-year-old brother, Sita

Who pays: People who set aside tax-free savings to pay for health care. How much: About $33 billion over 10 years The lowdown: The law limits annual contributions to medical Flexible Spending Accounts to $2,500; there was no government limit before. Many employers had allowed $5,000 in the accounts, and some even more. But the average contribution was only $1,400 per year, so relatively few workers will be affected. Four in 10 employees have jobs that give them the chance to sign up for these accounts. Last year, people with FSAs and similar accounts lost the ability to spend the money on over-the-counter medicines not prescribed by doctors. Also, the penalty increased from 10 percent to 20 percent for money withdrawn for nonmedical reasons from Health Savings Accounts, which people use to help pay high insurance deductibles. When: Contribution limit begins in 2013. Who pays: People with big medical or dental bills who itemize deductions. How much: Almost $19 billion over 10 years. Currently, taxpayers have to spend more than 7.5 percent of their adjusted gross income on medical care to qualify for a deduction. The threshold will rise to 10 percent. So a household with income of $50,000 would have to spend $5,000 on health care before deducting amounts above that. The lowdown: Most Americans don’t have enough out-of-pocket expenses, those not paid by insurance, to meet even the lower threshold. When: 2013 (delayed until 2017 for taxpayers age 65 or over)

Doctor accused of ‘waterboarding’ his daughter
DOVER, Del. — The daughter of a Delaware pediatrician who has appeared on national TV for his research on near-death experiences told investigators he “waterboarded” her several times by holding her face under a running faucet. An attorney for Dr. Melvin Morse described the waterboarding description as an “attention-getter” by authorities, based on an allegation from an 11-year-old who had made a false abuse claim against a family member before. “Whatever’s being described is not waterboarding,” said Joe Hurley, who has not spoken to Morse since Tuesday’s arrests. “I think that’s an attention-getter. I’m not sure where that came from or how that developed.” Morse and his wife, Pauline, were charged with several felony counts Tuesday based on the daughter’s claims. Acting upon a complaint by the Delaware attorney general’s office, state officials on Thursday ordered the emergency suspension of Morse’s medical license. Waterboarding simulates drowning and it has been used in the past by U.S. interrogators on terrorism suspects. Many critics call it torture. Morse, who has authored several books and articles on paranormal science and near-death experiences, has appeared on shows such as “Larry King Live” and the “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to discuss his research, which also has been featured on an episode of “Unsolved Mysteries” and in an article in “Rolling Stone” magazine. Morse’s Web site, http:// spiritualscientific.com, is strewn with commentary about God, love, family and death. At the time of Tuesday’s arrest, Morse, 58, was out on bail on misdemeanor charges of assault and endangering the welfare of a child. Those charges stemmed from a July incident in which authorities allege Morse grabbed the 11-year-old by the ankle and, as her 6-yearold sister watched, dragged her across a gravel driveway, took her inside the family’s home and began spanking her. When she was interviewed again Monday, the older girl told investigators that beginning in 2009, her father had disciplined her by what he told her was “waterboarding.” State police said the girl was subjected to such punishment at least four times and that her mother

Singh, two priests whose families were back in India and whose lives in America revolved around their faith; — Suveg Singh Khattra, 84, a former farmer in India who was a constant presence at the temple; — Prakash Singh, 39, a priest who was remembered as a fun-loving personality who enjoyed telling jokes; and — Paramjit Kaur, 41 who worked 66 hours a week to provide for her family, but also found time to pray every day for at least an hour. The FBI roped off the temple for four days while agents conducted their investigation. They handed the keys back to Sikh leaders Thursday morning. Workers then spent the day cleaning up, repairing bullet damage, shampooing carpets and repainting walls to rid the temple of traces of the carnage. As children played outside and women cooked an impromptu meal in the temple’s kitchen, Amardeep Kaleka, the temple president’s son, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that a more positive spirit existed after the temple was cleaned.

witnessed some of the incidents but did not stop them. Hurley, the attorney, said the 11-year-old has some “opposition issues” and had complained to her parents several years ago about being abused by a half-sibling. He said the parents contacted authorities and the half-sibling was arrested, but that the girl confessed months later that the incident never happened and that she just didn’t want the half-sibling living in the house. Melvin Morse was being held Thursday on $14,500 secured bail. His wife was released previously on $14,500 unsecured bail. Both were ordered to have no contact with their two daughters or with each other. They face a preliminary hearing Aug. 16. On the same day he was arrested on child endangerment charges July 13, Morse also was charged with terroristic threatening after allegedly threatening in May to kill a 65-year-old man. Hurley said he was told by a deputy attorney general that the terroristic threatening charge, which prosecutors dropped a week after it was filed, involved a New Castle County attorney. A spokesman for the attorney general’s office declined to comment.

Answers to Thursday’s questions: States with four letters in their names are: Iowa, Ohio and Utah. States that have five-letter names are: Idaho, Maine and Texas. A horse’s teeth give rise to the expression “long in the tooth” to describe someone past his or her prime. As a horse ages, its gums recede, exposing more and more of its teeth and eventually, the roots of its teeth. Thus, the longer a horse’s teeth appear to be, the older the horse.
