Old school funding formula still driving payments
BY MIKE FORD In 1997, the Ohio Supreme Court deemed the state’s school funding formula unconstitutional. Despite that, it remained in place until former Governor Ted Strickland abolished it after his 2007 inauguration. Though not officially in place, the formula is still the driving force in public education funding because the formula hasn’t been replaced. Delphos City Schools Treasurer Brad Rostorfer said Strickland came into office determined to make the matter constitutional but didn’t have the money to implement his Pathways to Student Success plan all at once. While it was being phased in, districts received funding based on what they had received under the old model, commonly referred to as the DeRolph formula. “The old formula gave us ‘X’ amount of dollars. When Governor Strickland took office, he totally threw it out and came up with an evidence-based model that said if you have ‘this’ many students, you have to have ‘this’ many teachers and we’ll give you ‘this’ amount of money. The problem was, he was dealing with the same budget they dealt with before. After applying Governor Strickland’s numbers, you got

the same amount of money but with a little variance. You couldn’t lose more than 1 percent and you couldn’t gain more than .75 percent,” he said. After a 2-year term, Ohio voters opted in favor of the governor’s Republican challenger in 2010. Governor John Kasich chose not to continue with Strickland’s formula, which had not been fully instituted. Because his administration continues to work on a replacement, the unconstitutional DeRolph formula remains the basis of school funding. “Kasich came into office and since Strickland was a Democrat, he threw his formula out the window but hasn’t come out with his own yet,” Rostorfer said. “In the meantime, you get what you got last year. Basically, it’s still the same amount of money we’ve received all along.” The DeRolph formula based school funding on a calculation derived from property values and a per-student dollar figure. Aside from the local share, the old formula also included a “charge off” that greatly reduced state funding. For example, Delphos City Schools received $5,403 per student when Strickland was elected. That figure was multiplied by See FUNDING, page 2

OBITUARIES Study: Junk food laws may Willard Lowell help curb kids’ obesity Nolan
By LINDSEY TANNER The Associated Press CHICAGO — Laws strictly curbing school sales of junk food and sweetened drinks may play a role in slowing childhood obesity, according to a study that seems to offer the first evidence such efforts could pay off. The results come from the first large national look at the effectiveness of the state laws over time. They are not a slam-dunk, and even obesity experts who praised the study acknowledge the measures are a political hot potato, smacking of a “nanny state” and opposed by industry and cash-strapped schools relying on food processors’ money. But if the laws have even a tiny effect, “what are the downsides of improving the food environment for children today?” asked Dr. David Ludwig, an obesity specialist at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital. “You can’t get much worse than it already is.” Children in the study gained less weight from fifth through eighth grades if they lived in states with strong, consistent laws versus no laws governing snacks available in schools. For example, kids who were 5 feet tall and 100 pounds gained on average 2.2 fewer pounds if they lived in states with strong laws in the three years studied. Also, children who were overweight or obese in fifth grade were more likely to reach a healthy weight by eighth grade if they lived in states with the strongest laws. The effects weren’t huge, and the study isn’t proof that the laws influenced kids’ weight. But the results raised optimism among obesity researchers and public health experts who generally applaud strong laws to get junk food out of schools. “This is the first real evidence that the laws are likely to have an impact,” said Dr. Virginia Stallings, director of the nutrition center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Stallings chaired an Institute of Medicine panel that urged standards for making snack foods and drinks sold in schools more healthful but was not involved in the new research. The authors of the study, released online today in the journal Pediatrics, analyzed data on 6,300 students in 40 states. Their heights and weights were measured in spring 2004, when they were finishing fifth grade and soon to enter middle school, and in 2007, during the spring of eighth grade. The researchers also examined several databases of state laws on school nutrition during the same time. The states were not identified in the study because of database license restrictions that protect the students’ confidentiality, the authors said. The laws governed food and drinks sold in public school vending machines and school stores, outside of mealtime. Laws were considered strong if they included specific nutrition requirements, such as limits on sugar and fats. Laws were rated weak if the requirements were vague and merely urged sales of “healthy” food without specifics. The results show that for these laws to be effective, they need to be consistently strong in all grades, said lead author Daniel Taber, a health policy researcher at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In late 2003, 27 of the states studied had no relevant laws affecting middle-schoolers, seven had weak laws and six had strong laws. Several states and school districts enacted tougher laws affecting middleschoolers and younger kids during the next few years as national concern rose over obesity rates. Recent data suggest that almost 20 percent of elementary school children nationwide are obese, and the rate among teens is only slightly lower. Aug. 9, 1938Aug. 10, 2012 Willard Lowell Nolan, 74, of Venedocia, passed away very suddenly at 2:24 p.m. Friday. He was born Aug. 9, 1938, in Mercer County to Willard L. and Edith (Swygart) Nolan, who preceded him in death. On April 7, 1961, he married Florence R. Robey, who survives. Services will begin at 10 a.m. Thursday at Trinity Friends Church in Van Wert, Pastors Steve Savage and Neil Hammons officiating. Burial will follow in Tomlinson Cemetery with military rites by the Spencerville veterans. Friends may call from 2-8 p.m. Wednesday at the church.

Man sentenced in case of couple bound
TOLEDO (AP) — An Ohio man has been sentenced to life in prison for the slayings of a couple found in a suburban Toledo home with plastic bags over their heads and their hands bound with tape. Lucas County Common Pleas Judge Dean Mandros sentenced 24-year-old Samuel Williams on Friday to two consecutive life terms in prison without parole for aggravated murder charges in the 2011 slayings of 20-year-old Lisa Straub and 21-year-old

Johnny Clarke. Authorities have said they were killed in a robbery gone awry. Williams also was given additional time for kidnapping and aggravated burglary charges. Charges for another man in the case, 23-year-old Cameo Pettaway, were dismissed after a judge ruled there was not enough evidence linking him to the deaths. Messages left for Williams’ attorneys were not immediately returned.

Complaint leads Victim reports violation of to possession protective order charge
At 11:45 a.m. on Saturday, while investigating a complaint in the 600 block of West Sixth Street, Delphos Police came into contact with Michael Sterling, 54, of Delphos, at which time it was found that Sterling was in possession of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana. Sterling was cited into Van Wert Municipal Court on the charge.


a cost-of-doing-business factor and multiplied the total by the number of students. That total was added to a $49,000 “add-on” that brought Delphos to $5,650,000. That was for the 2006-2007 academic year, in which the formula then subtracted its 23-mill “charge off” designed to account for the district’s wealth based on property values. This reduced state funding to Delphos City Schools from $5.6 million to $1.8 million. The DeRolph formula was initially ruled unconstitutional in 1994 but overturned on appeal. The state supreme court upheld the initial ruling in 1997 but also did so three subsequent times. Eighteen years later and despite it being officially abolished, the unconstitutional formula remains in place by virtue of the state working off the amounts its calculations arrived at. “There is no formula other than to say ‘this is the money you got last year; divide it by the number of students and multiply that number by this number and that’s what you get’,” Rostorfer said. “There has been no movement; they didn’t think they’d have a formula in place for this coming school year and they don’t. We don’t know when we’ll have one.”

Ohio gas prices down slightly


Run for the Marbles 5K Run/Walk results


COLUMBUS (AP) — Despite a national trend of sharply rising gas prices this summer, Ohio drivers are paying slightly less at the pump this week than last. The average price for a gallon of regular gas was $3.74 in today’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s down about 12 cents from 3.86 last week. The slight dip comes amid rising prices this summer due to problems with refineries and pipelines in the West Coast and Midwest. Average gas price in Ohio is 20 cents more than a year ago.

Social Security surplus dwarfed by future deficit
By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press WASHINGTON — As millions of baby boomers flood Social Security with applications for benefits, the program’s $2.7 trillion surplus is starting to look small. For nearly three decades Social Security produced big surpluses, collecting more in taxes from workers than it paid in benefits to retirees, disabled workers, spouses and children. The surpluses also helped mask the size of the budget deficit being generated by the rest of the federal government. Those days are over. Since 2010, Social Security has been paying out more in benefits than it collects in taxes, adding to the urgency for Congress to address the program’s long-term finances. “To me, urgent doesn’t begin to describe it,” said Chuck Blahous, one of the public trustees who oversee Social Security. “I would say we’re somewhere between critical and too late to deal with it.” The Social Security trustees project the surplus will be gone in 2033. Unless Congress acts, Social Security would only collect enough tax reveBy RICARDO ALONSOZALDIVAR Associated Press nue each year to pay about 75 percent of benefits, triggering an automatic reduction. Lawmakers from both political parties say they want to avoid such a dramatic benefit cut for people who have retired and might not have the means to make up the lost income. Still, that scenario is more than two decades away, which is why many in Congress are willing to put off changes. But once the surplus is spent, the annual funding gaps start off big and grow fast, which could make them hard to rein in if Congress procrastinates. The projected shortfall in 2033 is $623 billion, according to the trustees’ latest report. It reaches $1 trillion in 2045 and nearly $7 trillion in 2086, the end of a 75-year period used by Social Security’s number crunchers because it covers the retirement years of just about everyone working today. Add up 75 years’ worth of shortfalls and you get an astonishing figure: $134 trillion. Adjusted for inflation, that’s $30.5 trillion in 2012 dollars, or eight times the size of this year’s entire federal budget.

Ryan starts out negative

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Mitt Romney’s running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, wasted little time tearing into President Barack Obama on Saturday, lambasting the Democrat’s “record of failure” just hours after being named to the GOP ticket. Ryan declared Saturday that the nation under Obama’s leadership is struggling through the “worst economic recovery in 70 years.” “No one disputes President Obama inherited a difficult situation,” Ryan said, standing at Romney’s side for the first time as the Republican presidential ticket on the USS Wisconsin, a retired battleship. “And, in his first two years, with his party in complete control of Washington, he passed nearly every item on his agenda. But that didn’t make things better.” Romney selected the 42-year-old Ryan, a seven-term congressman, from a short list that included Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell. Ryan is the architect of a conservative and intensely controversial long-term budget plan to remake Medicare and cut trillions in federal spending. His selection immediately thrusts those budget plans into the forefront of the presidential contest. Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina, called Ryan “the architect of the radical Republican House budget” proposal and said the plan “would end Medicare as we know it.” “We won’t duck the tough issues,” Ryan said during his acceptance speech. “We will lead.” As his family came on stage, Ryan knelt to embrace his 10-year-old daughter, Liza, and sons Charles, 8, and Sam, 7, before kissing his wife, Janna.

GOP VP pick’s Medicare plan back in spotlight
WASHINGTON — Republican Paul Ryan’s blueprint for Medicare could prove as polarizing in the campaign as President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul has been. Even Mitt Romney may not want to go there. Romney’s new running mate has built a strong reputation on Capitol Hill for bold ideas to restrain health care costs and federal spending overall. His centerpiece idea is to steer future retirees into private insurance plans, with a fixed payment from the government that may or may not cover as much of a retiree’s costs as does the current program. Ryan, a conservative Wisconsin congressman and chairman of the House Budget Committee, calls his idea “premium support.” Democrats call it a voucher plan. In theory, Ryan’s plan could work, economists say. But the devil’s in the details. Lots of them, and yet to be ironed out. Ryan would also turn Medicaid over to the states, and sharply limit the growth of future spending on that safety net program. Between them, Medicare and Medicaid cover about 100 million people, touching nearly every American family in some way. While expressing support broadly, Romney has yet to spell out where he stands on specifics of his running mate’s proposals. And that could get tricky. Mindful of the risks, Romney put gentle but unmistakable distance between his agenda and Ryan’s hot-potato budget proposals on Sunday, a day after announcing his running mate’s selection. The presidential candidate singled out Ryan’s work “to make sure we can save Medicare.” But Romney never said whether he embraced that plan himself. During the Republican primary, Romney had called Ryan’s budget a “bold and exciting effort” that was “very much needed.” Democrats wouldn’t let them off the hook, criticizing the “Ryan-Romney” Medicare plan at every turn. Seniors vote at higher rates than younger voters, and Medicare matters to them. Concern about Medicare cuts in Obama’s health care law helped drive older voters into the Republican camp in

would need to invest $8.6 trillion today, and have it pay returns of 2.9 percent above inflation for the next 75 years, to produce enough money to cover the shortfall. That’s the rate of return Social Security expects to get from its trust funds. The problem, of course, is that Social Security doesn’t have an extra $8.6 trillion to invest. Social Security Commissioner Michael J. Astrue said he is frustrated that little has been done to solve a problem that is only going to get harder to fix as 2033 approaches. If changes are done soon, they can be spread out over time, perhaps sparing current retirees while giving workers time to increase their savings. “It won’t be easy but it’s just going to get harder the longer they wait,” Astrue said. There is no consensus in Washington on how pressing the problem is. President Barack Obama created a deficit-reduction commission in 2010 but didn’t embrace its plan for Social Security: raising the retirement age, reducing benefits for medium- and high-income workers and raising the cap on the amount of wages subject to the payroll tax, all very gradually. the 2010 congressional elections, delivering control of the House to the GOP. The political sensitivities are clear. Polls find that Americans lean heavily on Medicare to help keep them secure after retirement and are suspicious of proposed alternatives, such as Ryan’s plan. Surveys also give Democrats an edge over Republicans when people are asked which party people most trust to handle Medicare. Democrats held a 48 percent-39 percent advantage on that issue in a June 2011 AP-GfK poll. In an interview Sunday on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Romney and Ryan both offered words meant to reassure the elderly. America is about more choices, Romney said, and “that’s how we make Medicare work down the road.” He said the program won’t change for seniors currently counting on the program. Ryan pitched in that his mother is a “Medicare senior in Florida.” For the most part, Ryan’s plan would not directly affect people now in Medicare. One exception: In repealing Obama’s health care law, Ryan would re-open the Medicare prescription coverage gap called the doughnut hole.

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON — With Mitt Romney’s announcement that Paul Ryan will be his running mate, we finally can extricate ourselves from one of the sillier debates and put to rest the narrative of the benighted “boring white guy (BWG).” BWG, which prompts about 17 million Google links, is the thing that Romney had to avoid at all costs, according to the Consensus, which consists of 20 or 30 pundits, all of whom seem to hook themselves up to the same dream in which the thought was implanted: “A boring white guy will doom Romney.” They scrambled to their keyboards: Romney already has the BWG vote wrapped up, they intoned. He needed to show the electorate that he’s willing to be “bold,” that he has “vision,” that he’s “likable” and, pause for meaningful throat-clearing, that he “gets it.” Gets what? That the American electorate is so daft that anyone with a certain skin tone or ethnic background or who isn’t boring is a better candidate than one who is: male, Caucasian and someone who doesn’t have a clue who the father of Snooki’s baby is, or for that matter, who Snooki is? It’s difficult to glean who exactly birthed the anti-BWG trope, but my guess would be a self-loathing BWG. Meanwhile, what exactly

When ‘boring’ is good


Point of View
is a BWG, and why would he be bad for Romney and presumably the country? Did we really need a cool, withit, popularity contest winner who’s all about the buzz? No inference intended. This conversation stemmed from the assumption that a vice presidential pick must be, if not helpful in ensuring votes from his/her home state, at least a symbolic statement about the person running for president. In fact, we know that the VP choice doesn’t really matter much. Historically, vice presidential picks are worth a net of about two percentage points in their home states, according to Nate Silver, who interprets American life statistically on the New York Times’ FiveThirtyEight blog. Nevertheless, some political analysts had been insisting that Romney should go with someone like Florida Sen. Marco Rubio to secure the Sunshine State’s Latino vote. Rubio, of course, is of Cuban descent, and is therefore Not White. But he is boring by the media’s definition — a pro-life, red-meat-eating, tea party conservative who makes

Romney look like, well, OK, the Fonz. In other words, Rubio, for all his presumed Latino pizazz, is in reality a boring white-ish guy who speaks excellent Spanish. Even considering his appeal and political talents, his selection would have been viewed as transparent pandering to a demographic whose members for some reason are believed to care only about the status of “undocumented workers” of similar heritage. The other relatively bold, anti-BWG pick would have been a woman, though Condi Rice — the GOP’s straight flush — declined all overtures. Other Republican women either aren’t (yet) quite right or are paying for the sins of John McCain. So Palin-averse are Republicans these days (how’s that winkyblinky thingy workin’ for ya?) that they’d sooner skip over Margaret Thatcher than risk the wrong woman. This left Romney with allegedly sensible and safe choices that are deficient in exciting pigmentation and/ or demographic sex appeal. Is Ryan too boring and too white? Only if you’re a superficial moron, which apparently is how many political strategists and commentators view most Americans. Checkboxing our way to idiocracy is a sad exit for a country where statesmen once roamed and the nation’s identity was sim-

ply American. Romney-Ryan is a ticket that says the GOP is all about the economy. This is where Romney has wanted to keep the conversation — away from divisive social issues and on jobs. Whether Democrats allow him to stay on that message is doubtful given that social issues are the best ammunition the Obama campaign has to pull independents away from Romney. This tactic won’t be for naught. The problem with today’s GOP isn’t that it is the party of boring white guys. The problem is that the party has allowed itself to be defined by a certain faction that insists on purity pledges that preclude the kind of flexibility that shifting circumstances sometimes warrant. Change isn’t always good, clearly, but rigidity can be equally damaging and alienating. There are doubtless plenty of “boring” AfricanAmericans, Latinos and even young voters who would vote for Romney and Ryan if the Republican leadership in the next few weeks can present a cogent, comprehensible plan to improve the lives of broad swaths of Americans who have little faith in the future. A nation jumpy with anxiety could stand a little boring for a change — and maybe even a little hope. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@

McIlroy back at top with record-setting win at PGA
KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — Rory McIlroy hit off wood chips and out of sand. He even stuck one shot in a tree branch — and went on to make par like it was no big deal. By the time the PGA Championship was over, he was in a class by himself. “On 18, I was just taking the whole thing in,” McIlroy said. “I allowed myself the luxury of walking up 18 knowing that I was going to win. I enjoyed the moment, just let it all sink in.” Another major championship masterpiece for the 23-year-old from Northern Ireland with seemingly unlimited potential. From the start of the weekend, McIlroy looked like the man to beat at Kiawah Island; nobody came close. He won Sunday by a record eight strokes, with a flair and charisma that could turn him into golf’s next star. Remember all that talk about how no lead is safe in 2012? McIlroy was in front the entire final round. “I set myself a target,” he said. “I said, ‘Look, if I get to 12 under par, nobody is going to catch me’.” He was at 12 under when he walked toward the 18th green with a 7-shot lead but a par there would have been anticlimactic. Instead, McIlroy rolled in a 25-foot birdie — and in the process surpassed the PGA Championship record for margin of victory that Jack Nicklaus set in 1980. McIlroy returned to No. 1 in the world and became the youngest player since Seve Ballesteros to win two majors. Tiger Woods was about four months older than McIlroy when he won his second major. McIlroy shot a 6-under 66 in the final round to finish at 13-under 275. McIlroy won last year’s U.S. Open by the same 8-shot margin but after winning the Honda Classic this March, he went into a tailspin by missing four cuts over five tournaments. Questions swirled about whether his romance with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki was hurting his game. McIlroy seized control with back-to-back birdies Sunday morning to complete the storm-delayed third round with a 67 and build a 3-shot lead. He closed out a remarkable week by playing bogeyfree over the final 23 holes on the demanding Ocean Course. David Lynn, a 38-year-old from England who was playing in the United States for the first time, was the runner-up, closing with a 68. McIlroy’s win ends a streak of the last 16 majors going to 16 different winners — a stretch that coincided with Woods’ drought in golf’s biggest tournaments. Woods hasn’t won a major since 2008. If there was a signature moment for McIlroy over the weekend, it might have been Saturday when his tee shot lodged in a thick tree branch on the third hole. He found it with help from the TV crew, took a penalty drop and fired a wedge to 6 feet to save par. There were more highlights Sunday. After pulling his approach on the par-5 second hole under a tree, he hit wedge off the wood chips to 6 feet for the first of two straight birdies. On No. 10, McIlroy blasted out from a sandy area just short of the green. The ball checked a foot from the cup, giving him an easy par. The only reason it wasn’t an even earlier blowout was because Ian Poulter, who started the final round six shots behind, made six birdies through seven holes. He faltered with three straight bogeys on the back nine and had to settle for a 69.

Jefferson, Bath scrimmage


DELPHOS — Scrimmages offer football teams a chance to work on situations they normally might not be able to and doing so against live competition. Both Jefferson and Bath got a lot of work in regarding those situations during Saturday morning’s opening scrimmage of 2012 at Stadium Park. “This is what scrimmages are for; it gives you a good look at what you do well and what you need to work on,” Jefferson coach Bub Lindeman said. “Plus, you’re looking for other things, like coming out ready to play and playing with emotion. I felt we did that pretty well; we started off well and carried that the whole way.” Bath head man Chris T. Miller was basically pleased with his team. “I’m not disappointed at all offensively. We’ve got a lot of new faces in there but we moved the ball; we just didn’t finish,” he asserted. “We knew Jefferson would play physical and we have

Ambrose wins again at Watkins Glen
By JOHN KEKIS The Associated Press WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — Just when Marcos Ambrose had about given up hope of winning again at Watkins Glen International, he began to slide. Suddenly in his element on an oil-smeared track, the Australian road race ace came alive one final time Sunday, storming past Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski in a fenderslamming last lap of a chaotic Sprint Cup race to win at Watkins Glen International for the second straight year. “It wasn’t going to be handed to me,” Ambrose said. “I had to get myself back up there.” Ambrose, who led eight of the 90 laps around the 2.45mile, 11-turn layout, had been shuffled back to ninth after a late caution and quickly made his way back to third in less than 10 laps, behind only Busch and Keselowski. After passing Keselowski for second, Ambrose still trailed Busch by 2.3 seconds and figured he was running for second as the laps wound down. “I managed to fight my way past Brad and then I tried to chase Kyle down, but he wasn’t making any mistakes and he had a fast car,” Ambrose said. “I just burned my stuff up trying to get to him. I was thinking, ‘OK, it may be second place here.’ But then the oil came down and I slipped to third and I thought, ‘That’s not the plan.’ So I just put my head down and just kept trying.” Oil had begun spewing from the No. 47 of Bobby Labonte and coated much of the track. With only one lap remaining, NASCAR did not throw a caution and Ambrose capitalized. “It was absolutely chaos at the end,” Ambrose added. “I had really burned off the brakes. I couldn’t figure out where it (the oil) was coming from. It was just absolutely crazy.” Desperate for a win to move back into contention for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, Busch skidded wide coming out of the first turn of the final lap and was bumped by Keselowski’s fast-closing No. 2 Dodge.

some key skill people to replace but I felt (tailback) Keanu (James), (quarterback) Doug (Sanders) and (wideout) Collin (Gossard) did a nice job.” Both sets of Wildcats got live looks for punts, extra points and field goals to start it off. Then it was on to downand-distance plays, such as 3rd-and-7. The only score there was a 73-yard touchdown run by Jefferson junior tailback Zavier Buzard. During the 1st-and-goal phase from the opponent’s 20, Jefferson got a 20-yard TD toss from junior quarterback Austin Jettinghoff to classmate Ross Thompson, while Bath got a 3-yard run from James. When the scrimmage moved into the 1st-and-10 starting at the 35, Buzard got a pair of scoring runs: a 1-yarder and a 6-yard bolt. Both times, Jettinghoff added the extra point. The Wildcat defense did not give up another score. “I felt our offensive line really got off the ball well and our backs ran hard.

We’ve focused on playing to the whistle during our twoa-days,” Lindeman added. “Our defense was physical and flew to the football. That has also been a focus of ours during the pre-season; getting a lot of red hats to the football. Yes, we have things to work on but this was a good first scrimmage.” On the other hand, Miller was not happy with his defense. “We played a pretty vanilla defense and we really didn’t have a game plan. That’s on me,” he added. “We were adjusting on the fly and thus, our execution and play were terrible. We will get into more of a game mode this week and we will game plan for our last scrimmage.” With the junior varsity and freshmen seeing action, the Jeffcats got a pair of scoring plays: a 21-yard run by freshman Corbin Betz and a 60-yard bolt by classmate Derek Foust. Jefferson hits the road to Maria Stein 6 p.m. Friday to take on Marion Local in its final tuneup of 2012. Bath plays LCC Friday.

“Busch slipped up big in turn one,” said Keselowski, who apologized after the race on Twitter. “There was nothing I could do. It was just one big giant oil slick underneath his car. We all checked up and Marcos was right on my bumper. We all just about spun out.” Keselowski took the lead after caroming off Busch heading uphill through the high-speed esses and Ambrose followed Keselowski through as Busch spun to the side, tearing up wads of sod. Skidding through the corners, Ambrose and Keselowski, his left front tire spewing smoke from a fender rub, battled side by side and nose to tail all the way around. Both even went through the grass in the inner loop at the top of the esses but kept charging. Ambrose bumped Keselowski to take the lead on the back straightaway but slipped again in turn 10 as Keselowski tried to return the favor but was unable to drive past. Neither gave ground and Ambrose forged ahead for good on the final turn, a hard right-hander, turning away Keselowski’s charge on the outside. “I must have hit the oil one more time and he didn’t,” Keselowski added. “I thought I had him.” “In the end, nobody knew what was going on,” said Richard Petty, owner of Ambrose’s No. 9 Ford. “They were slipping and sliding off the race track. Marcos might have known a little bit about it but the rest of us

didn’t. Marcos stayed with it all day. Everything fell our way.” It didn’t for Busch, who led 43 laps and seemingly held a commanding lead heading to the white flag of the Finger Lakes 355. “Kyle hit the oil,” said Dave Rogers, crew chief of Busch’s No. 18 Toyota. “The 47 broke. You can see him; he just went by smoking. He left oil down all over the track. Kyle hit the oil and it allowed the (No.) 2 to get to us.” An angry Busch declined to speak to the media afterward. Jimmie Johnson was third to gain the points lead by one over Greg Biffle. Sonoma winner Clint Bowyer and Sam Hornish Jr. were next, giving Dodge, which is leaving NASCAR at season’s end, two in the top five. Dale Earnhardt Jr. spun late while running in the top 10 and finished 28th to fall from first to fourth in points, 17 behind Johnson. Biffle was sixth; Busch, Matt Kenseth, Regan Smith and Martin Truex Jr. rounded out the top 10. Ryan Newman finished 11th to move back ahead of Jeff Gordon into the second wildcard slot. Kasey Kahne, who has two wins, holds the other. Gordon was also a victim of the oil, spinning late and dropping from inside the top 10 to 21st after having driven past Newman. The top 10 drivers in the standings qualify for the 10-race Chase and two wild cards are awarded to the drivers with the most wins outside the top 10 — provided they finishing 20th or higher in points. Polesitter Juan Pablo Montoya, who broke the track record in qualifying, finished 33rd after being forced to pit when something broke in the right front of his No. 42 Chevy a third of the way into the 90-lap race. He had tracked Busch for the first 26 laps.

The Associated Press National League MIAMI — Chris Capuano held Miami hitless until the seventh inning and Hanley Ramirez drove in three runs against his former team, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Marlins 5-0 Sunday. Capuano (11-8) shut down the Marlins until Jose Reyes lined a clean single to center field with one out in the seventh. He allowed two hits in eight innings, striking out nine. Ramirez, acquired in a trade with the Marlins on July 25, hit a sacrifice fly in the third and added a 2-run single in eighth, giving him 500 career RBIs. Marlins starter Wade LeBlanc (1-2) pitched a season-high seven innings, allowing one run and six hits. REDS 3, CUBS 0 CHICAGO — Johnny Cueto pitched 3-hit ball for eight innings, Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick homered and Cincinnati beat the Cubs. Cueto (15-6) moved into a tie with New York’s R.A. Dickey for the NL lead in victories. He retired the Cubs in order in four of the first five innings. Back in the lineup after sitting for two games because of a recent slump, Bruce hit a 2-run shot into the right-field bleachers in the fifth off Brooks Raley (0-2). Ludwick connected with a drive to left in the sixth. In his second big-league start in place of injured right-hander Matt Garza, Raley retired the first 13 Reds. He allowed five hits and three runs over six innings. BREWERS 5, ASTROS 3 HOUSTON — Yovani Gallardo handled Houston once again and Corey Hart homered as the Brewers broke an 11-game road skid. Milwaukee won on the road for the first time since July 8 at Houston in its last game before the All-Star break. Gallardo (11-8) won his 10th straight start against Houston. The right-hander allowed three runs and struck out eight in 7 2/3 innings. Jordan Lyles (2-9) allowed eight hits and four runs — two earned — in seven innings for his fifth straight loss. He hasn’t won since June 26. PIRATES 11, PADRES 5 PITTSBURGH — Clint Barmes’ first career grand slam keyed a 9-run fourth inning and Neil Walker went 5-for-5 as the Pirates rallied past San Diego. Walker homered and doubled as the Pirates overcame an early 5-0 deficit and ended San Diego’s 6-game winning streak. The Padres had won 11 in a row at Pittsburgh dating to 2009. Andrew McCutchen and Michael McKenry each drove in two runs during the big inning against Ross Ohlendrorf (4-3) and Cory Burns as

the Pirates sent 14 batters to the plate. McKenry drew a bases-loaded walk from Ohlendorf just before Barmes’ slam and then singled in the final run of the inning. Erik Bedard (7-12) made it through five shaky innings for the win, allowing five runs — three earned — and five hits with four walks and six strikeouts. PHILLIES 8, CARDINALS 7, 11 INNINGS PHILADELPHIA — Juan Pierre beat out a run-scoring infield single in the 11th inning, lifting the Phillies to a win over the Cardinals. Jimmy Rollins reached against Barret Browning (0-2) on a fielder’s choice. He advanced to second base on a grounder and then stole third. Pierre hit one deep into the hole that shortstop Rafael Furcal made a great stab at and fired to first. But Pierre just beat the throw and Rollins scored. Philadelphia’s Erik Kratz hit a 3-run homer off Mitchell Boggs in the eighth that tied the game 7-all. Jeremy Horst (2-0) tossed two scoreless innings for his first majorleague victory. DIAMONDBACKS 7, NATIONALS 4 PHOENIX — Rookie Patrick Corbin allowed four hits through seven innings and the Diamondbacks snapped the Nationals’ season-high winning streak at eight games. Corbin (4-4) retired 16 in a row after Bryce Harper’s infield single in the first. The 23-year-old righthander gave up two runs, struck out seven and walked none. Paul Goldschmidt drove in three runs with a double and single and scored twice for Arizona. Ross Detwiler (6-5) allowed four earned and three hits in 4 2/3 innings. METS 6, BRAVES 5 NEW YORK — Jonathon Niese pitched 6-hit ball over eight innings, David Wright sparked the offense with a pair of doubles against Ben Sheets and the New York Mets just hung on to beat Atlanta and salvage the finale of a 3-game series. Niese (9-6) matched the second-longest outing of his big-league career, allowing one run, striking out six and walking two. With the Mets ahead 6-1, the Braves loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth against rookie Josh Edgin. Frank Francisco relieved and walked pinch-hitter Juan Francisco and Michael Bourn, forcing in a pair of runs, then gave up an oppositefield, 2-run double to right to Martin Prado on an 0-2 pitch. Bourn was held at third as rightfielder Mike Baxter made a clean pickup. Jon Rauch then came in and retired Jason Heyward for his second save of the season. Atlanta lost for the fourth time in 18 games while the Mets won for only the ninth time in 30.

JAMIE FARR TOLEDO CLASSIC SYLVANIA — So Yeon Ryu rode a string of six straight birdies in the middle of her round to a 9-under 62 and a 7-stroke victory in the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic. The 22-year-old began the day in the midst of a 4-player logjam — all

South Koreans — for first place. She took the lead by herself for the first time with an 8-foot birdie putt at the third hole and gradually stretched her advantage until pulling away with birdies on Nos. 9-14. Angela Stanford made a long birdie putt on the final hole for 66 to finish second. Ryu, whose only previous LPGA Tour win was the 2011 U.S. Women’s Open, ended up at 20-under 264 — thanks to the lowest final round by a Farr winner. PRICE CUTTER CHARITY CHAMPIONSHIP SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Chris Wilson won the Price Cutter Charity Championship for his first Tour title, beating Scott Harrington with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff. Wilson, the former Northwestern player who missed the cuts in 11 of his previous 13 tour starts this year, birdied the final hole of regulation for a 5-under 67 to match Harrington, also a former Northwestern player, at 21-under 267. Harrington shot a 68, also birdieing the final hole of regulation at Highland Springs, but hit his second shot into the water on the par-5 closing hole in the playoff. Wilson made $112,500 after entering the week with only $6,486 in earnings. He jumped from 165th to 23rd on the money list, with the final top 25 earning 2013 PGA Tour cards. U.S. WOMEN’S AMATEUR CLEVELAND — Lydia Ko won the U.S. Women’s Amateur, beating Jaye Marie Green 3 and 1 in the 36-hole final at The Country Club. Ko, the South Korean-born New Zealander who tops the world amateur rankings, won at 15 years, 3 months, 18 days to become the second-youngest winner in tournament history. Kimberly Kim was 14 years, 11 months, 21 days when she won the 2006 tournament. Ko won the New South Wales Open in January in Australia at 14 to become the youngest player to win a professional tour event. Green is from Boca Raton, Fla. No changes to top 8 for US Ryder Cup team: Phil Mickelson won’t have to spend the next three weeks wondering if he’ll be in the Ryder Cup. In the final qualifying event for eight Americans to earn their way onto the team, there was no change after the PGA Championship. Mickelson was holding down the No. 8 spot and was assured of qualifying for the ninth straight time when neither Bo Van Pelt nor Steve Stricker could make a run on the back nine at Kiawah Island. Tiger Woods, a captain’s pick in 2010, was No. 1 in the standings. Also qualifying were Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar. Dufner, Bradley and Simpson will be playing for the first time in the Ryder Cup, which will be played Sept. 28-30 at Medinah. U.S. captain Davis Love III fills out his 12-man team on Sept. 4 with four picks. There was virtually no change throughout the top 15 in the standings. Watson and Dufner swapped places, with Watson going to No. 2, while Van Pelt moved up one spot to No. 14 over Dustin Johnson. Hunter Mahan, who missed the cut, remained at No. 9, followed by Stricker, Jim Furyk, Rickie Fowler and Brandt Snedeker. Indications are strong that Love will take Stricker and Furyk, who has never had to rely on being a pick. Furyk has played on every Ryder Cup team since 1997. Mahan also would seem safe as a 2-time winner who has played on every U.S. team — including the Presidents Cup — since 2007. Even so, Love will look at how the next three tournaments are played out, two of them part of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Sheets (4-2) had the poorest of his six outings this season, allowing five runs — four earned — and eight hits in six innings as his ERA rose from 1.41 to 2.13. GIANTS 9, ROCKIES 6 SAN FRANCISCO — Hunter Pence hit a 3-run homer during a 5-run rally in the eighth inning that lifted the Giants over Colorado. Buster Posey’s sacrifice fly in the eighth tied it. Melky Cabrera, who had an RBI single in the comeback, drove in three runs. Brandon Belt doubled twice and went 4-for-4 for the Giants. Matt Belisle (3-4) took the loss after allowing the first three hitters he faced to reach bases. Clay Hensley (4-3) pitched the eighth for the win. American League ARLINGTON, Texas — Josh Hamilton hit his 32nd homer and drove in three runs, Yu Darvish struck out eight and the Texas Rangers beat the Detroit Tigers 8-3 Sunday. Hamilton had a 2-run drive in the first inning, taking the major-league lead and matching his career high. He added an RBI single in the third to give him 99 RBIs, which is also tops in baseball. Darvish (12-8) allowed six hits and walked five in 6 2/3 innings. He is 3-0 against the Tigers this year. Ian Kinsler drove in two runs for the AL West-leading Rangers. MARINERS 4, ANGELS 1 Jesus Montero homered twice off major-league ERA leader Jered Weaver and Jason Vargas outpitched his former Long Beach State teammate to lift the Seattle Mariners over the Angels. Weaver (15-2) had won nine straight outings. He fell one shy of Chuck Finley’s 1997 franchise record for consecutive starts won. Vargas (13-8) allowed a run and seven hits over 8 1/3 innings. The left-hander gave up a 1-out triple in the ninth by Howie Kendrick before Tom Wilhelmsen came in and got the final two outs for his 16th save in 18 chances. Weaver was 6-0 with a 2.23 ERA and 26 strikeouts in six starts during July but Vargas beat him out for AL pitcher of the month honors with a 5-0 record, a 1.64 ERA and 26 strikeouts in his six starts. ORIOLES 5, ROYALS 3 BALTIMORE — Manny Machado hit his third homer in four major-league games, Nick Markakis also connected and the Baltimore Orioles got four hitless innings from their bullpen in a victory over Kansas City. Machado hit a 2-run homer in the second off former Orioles pitcher Bruce Chen (8-10). The 20-year-old joined Frank Robinson, Ray Knight and Lee May as the only players to

LeBron helps US beat Spain in tight Olympic final
By JAY COHEN The Associated Press
LONDON — LeBron James stood with both arms in the air, then hugged Kevin Durant before they headed to the bench. They were quite the combination all day long. James had a huge dunk and a 3-pointer in the final 2:50 and Durant scored 30 points, helping the U.S. men’s basketball team win its second straight Olympic title with a 107-100 victory over Spain on the final day of the London Games. “We knew it wasn’t going to be easy. We didn’t want it easy,” James said. “A lot of teams have won gold easy. We didn’t want it that way. We’re a competitive team and we love when it gets tight. That’s when our will and determination kind of shows. It was the same way in ’08.” Mike Krzyzewski, who has said he’s retiring as U.S. coach, emptied his bench in the final minute Sunday, then embraced James after the final horn sounded. The Americans hugged at midcourt, with guard James Harden holding a doll of the Olympic mascot. Four years after beating Spain 118-107 in the Beijing final, the U.S. found itself in another tight one, unable to truly slow the Spanish down until the closing minutes. James had 19 points on a day he joined Michael Jordan as the only players to win the NBA title, regular-season MVP, NBA Finals MVP and Olympic gold in the same year. For Kobe Bryant, it was his last Olympic moment. “This is it for me,” added Bryant, who scored 17 points and now has a second gold medal to go with his five NBA championships. “The other guys are good to go.” Britain drew the curtain on the Summer Games Sunday night, with a rock ’n’ roll party for the closing ceremony. The Who, the surviving members of Queen and the Spice Girls headlined a show celebrating the remarkable crop of pop icons the host country has given the world for decades. Queen Elizabeth II, who made a memorable mock parachute entrance at the opening ceremony, was on hand. And following tradition, the mayor of London handed the Olympic flag off to his counterpart from Rio de Janeiro — the home of the 2016 Games. Britain finished its home Olympics with its biggest medal haul since 1908 but the top of the table belonged to the USA. The Americans topped the chart with 46 golds and 104 overall, easily topping China’s second-place total of 87. — Part of the U.S. winning total belonged to the men’s wrestling team, which had
WHITE SOX 7, ATHLETICS 3 CHICAGO — Chris Sale struck out 11 in 6 2/3 innings, A.J. Pierzynski had a 2-run home run in a 5-run sixth inning and the Chicago White Sox beat Oakland. Sale (14-3) reached double digits in strikeouts for the third time this season. He fanned 10 in the first five innings, allowed two runs on solo homer and walked none. Bartolo Colon (9-9) allowed six runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings. With the score tied 1-all in the sixth, Pierzynski’s 23rd homer put the White Sox up 3-1.

multiple gold medalists for the first time since 1996. Jake Varner got the second one when he won four straight matches to take the 96-kilogram freestyle, beating Valerie Andriitsev of Ukraine 1-0, 1-0 in the final. Varner fell to his knees once the clock ticked to zero, soaking in the fact he had just accomplished the biggest goal of his life. He soon found Cael Sanderson, a gold medalist at the 2004 Athens Olympics who helped coach him to the title, and thanked him with a a leaping bear hug. Britain’s final gold of the games went to super heavyweight Anthony Joshua, who rallied from a late deficit to upset defending champ Roberto Cammarelle of Italy on a tie-breaker. Joshua’s big finish in the tournament’s glamour division allowed him to match the titles won by bantamweight Luke Campbell and women’s flyweight Nicola Adams, part of Britain’s 5-medal boxing haul that included Freddie Evans’ welterweight silver from Sunday. Winning divisions were: Ukrainian lightweight Vasyl Lomachenko,flyweightRobeisy Ramirez of Cuba, welterweight Serik Sapiyev of Kazakhstan and Russian light heavyweight Egor Mekhontsev. Sapiyev was honored as the tournament’s best boxer. — Uganda picked up its first and only medal of the games when Stephen Kiprotich easily captured the Olympic marathon. Kiprotich finished in 2 hours, 8 minutes, 1 second, holding off the Kenyan duo of Abel Kirui and Wilson Kipsang. Kirui finished 26 seconds behind Kiprotich, while Kipsang, the leader much of the race, faded late but held on for bronze just ahead of American Meb Keflezighi. Kiprotich had such a big lead near the finish that he grabbed a flag from the stands and wore it on his way to the finish. The rest of the Olympic action Sunday:

VOLLEYBALL Russia won its first men’s volleyball gold in 32 years by rallying past Brazil in five sets. Second-ranked Russia dropped the first two sets and faced two match points before putting together an impressive comeback in a 19-25, 20-25, 29-27, 25-22, 15-9 victory, paced by 7-2 middle blocker Dmitriy Muserskiy’s 31 points. The Russians thought they had

won it on Muserskiy’s kill in the fifth set and began to celebrate but the officials awarded the point to top-ranked Brazil. After regrouping, Muserskiy came right back to spike match point. Italy won its fourth men’s volleyball medal in the last five Olympics by beating Bulgaria in four sets for the bronze. GYMNASTICS (RHYTHMIC) The Russians won their fourth straight Olympic gold medal in the group event, easily beating Belarus. With Evgeniya Kanaeva winning the individual all-around Saturday, Russia has now won both rhythmic titles at every Olympics since the 2000 Sydney Games. The Russians didn’t even bother waiting for the final standings, exchanging hugs and blowing kisses at the camera before the score of Ukraine, the last team to perform, was announced. Italy was third after appearing to make mistakes on both its routines. CYCLING (MOUNTAIN BIKE) World champion Jaroslav Kulhavy of the Czech Republic won a 2-man sprint to take the gold medal in the men’s mountain bike race. Kulhavy made the most of a final steep ascent on the technical circuit in the English countryside to move ahead of Nino Schurter of Switzerland and then sprinted to the line. Schurter won the silver medal and Marco Aurelio Fontana of Italy took bronze. Kulhavy, whose sole objective this season was the Olympic gold, put his hands on his head as if he couldn’t believe he won. He then tied a Czech flag around his neck like a cape while Schurter, a bronze medalist in Beijing four years ago, collapsed to the ground in exhaustion. ELSEWHERE IN LONDON France won its second consecutive Olympic gold medal in men’s handball with a 22-21 win over Sweden. ... Croatia won its first Olympic gold in men’s water polo, pulling away from Italy for an 8-6 win. The U.S. lost 10-9 to Australia to drop to eighth place. ... Tatsuhiro Yonemitsu topped the men’s 66-kilogram freestyle wrestling division, beating Sushil Kumar of India to give the Japanese their first Olympic title in the sport in 24 years. ... Laura Asadauskaite of Lithuania captured the women’s modern pentathlon. Samantha Murray of Britain was second and Brazil’s Yane Marques won the bronze. Brazil gears up for ’16 carnival: For all those beach volleyball players who thought Horse Guards Parade transformed itself into the sport’s best Olympic venue yet, wait until they hit the sand in Brazil in four years. It’s Rio’s turn — and if anybody knows how to throw a carnival, the Brazilians sure do. “Rio! Rio! Rio!” Brazilian beach volleyball star Emanuel exclaimed after winning a silver medal last week. Emanuel plans to be there as a fan by then, his international playing days over. With London saying goodbye to a Summer Games that played to wide acclaim, the Olympic baton passes to Rio de Janeiro. And with it comes a whole lot of work for the 2016 hosts. Not to mention loud music and fanfare. London’s show will prove a tough act to follow but Rio will be looking to dazzle the world with its beaches and breathtaking views while dealing with the daunting challenge of getting a city ready for the world’s most sweeping sports event. Large-brimmed Brazilian hats sporting the 2016 logo showed up four years early in London. Along with thousands of party-ready Brazilian fans providing the perfect preview of what’s next for the world to see. And if people thought those Brazilian costumes were crazy in London — green and yellow wigs, flag leggings, shawls and face paint — wait until those outfits are kicked up a notch once the games come to home soil. Brazil’s victorious women’s volleyball team gave a glimpse of what’s ahead. The Brazilians stunned the favored Americans on Saturday, then held an hour-long party at Earls Court, celebrating South America style.

‘Bourne,’ ‘Campaign’ bump Batman from No. 1 spot
By DAVID GERMAIN The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — “The Dark Knight Rises” has finally fallen out of first-place at the weekend box office. Jeremy Renner’s action tale “The Bourne Legacy” took over as the No. 1 movie with a $40.3 million debut, according to studio estimates Sunday. Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis’ political comedy “The Campaign” opened at No. 2 with $27.4 million. The new movies pushed “The Dark Knight Rises” down to third-place with $19.5 million, raising the superhero blockbuster’s three-week domestic total to $390.1 million. The weekend’s other new wide release, Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones’ marital comic drama “Hope Springs,” opened at No. 4 with $15.6 million. “The Dark Knight Rises” had been the No. 1 movie for three-straight weekends since debuting amid tragedy as a gunman killed 12 people and wounded 58 at a midnight screening of the film on opening day in Colorado. The violence seems to have had little effect on the runaway success of the Batman finale. “The opening weekend in our business is very important, and this incident took place before the picture officially opened. It took place at a midnight screening. I can’t give you an actual number, but I’m sure we were affected on that opening,” said Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros., which released “The Dark Knight Rises.” Universal’s “The Bourne Legacy” casts Renner and Rachel Weisz in an offshoot of the three hits that starred Matt Damon as unstoppable operative Jason Bourne. Renner plays an agent pursued by Bourne’s old spy masters after they try to snuff out the espionage program in a cover-up conspiracy. “The Bourne Legacy” came in well behind the $69.3 million debut of Damon’s last entry in the series, 2007’s “The Bourne Ultimatum.” But the new film had a strong

Mr. and Mrs. John Wittler will celebrate 50 years of marriage on Aug. 18. John and the former Mary Lou Recker were married at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church on Aug. 18, 1962. A reception was held Aug. 4 at the Delphos Eagles following a celebration Mass. They are the parents of Dan (Lori) Wittler and Jane (Jim) Williams. They have seven grandchildren: Julianne, Madeline, John Patrick and Elizabeth Williams; and Jack, Paige and Mitchell Williams. John is retired from Dana in Lima and Mary Lou is a retired teacher from St. John’s Elementary.

Mr. and Mrs. Ralph T. Averesch of Ottoville will celebrate 50 years of marriage on Aug. 25 with a Thanksgiving Mass at Ottoville Immaculate Conception Church, followed by a reception. Ralph and the former Judy Miehls were married on Aug. 25, 1962, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Fort Jennings by the Rev. John Miller. They are the parents of Cindy (Jim) Klima, Tina (Zeke) Menke, Amy (Tim) Berelsman and Jeff (Jamie) Averesch. They also have 11 grandchildren. Ralph is retired from SK Handtool Co. in Defiance. Judy is retired from Kids Count Daycare in Kalida.

Nickolas and Susan Schroeder of Columbus Grove, announce the engagement of their daughter, Sara Kay, to Douglas Lee Boecker, son of Duane and Bonnie Boecker of Ottoville. The couple will exchange vows on Sept. 8 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Ottoville. The bride-elect is a 2004 graduate of Columbus Grove High School and a 2008 graduate of Bluffton University. She is a teacher at the WORTH Center in Lima. Her fiance is a 1997 graduate of Ottoville High School and a 1999 graduate of the University of Northwestern Ohio. He is employed at Progressive Stamping Inc., in Ottoville.


start and establishes Renner as a sturdy frontman to keep the franchise running. “I love the fact that we were able to reboot this and do as well as we were able to. It leaves it open for us to think about it going forward,” said Nikki Rocco, Universal’s head of distribution. “We are very much into what it’s going to look like the next time.” While Damon was absent, his presence is felt throughout “The Bourne Legacy,” with characters commenting on Jason Bourne sightings and his former handlers jittery over the fact that the rogue agent is still out there. Renner is a bankable star to carry on solo, but Universal might really cash in if the studio managed to lure Damon back.

Military sexual assault focus of YouTube series
By JULIE WATSON The Associated Press SAN DIEGO — The enormous obstacles and emotional torment that a female solider confronts in reporting a sexual assault in the military are the focus of the threepart Web series “Lauren” debuting today on YouTube’s new channel WIGS, which focuses on drama for women. Featuring “Flashdance” star Jennifer Beals and Troian Bellisario, “Lauren” gives a close-up look at the challenges women service members face in trying to find justice after being raped. It’s a problem that military leaders have given unprecedented attention to this year. The Defense Department has estimated that 86 percent of sexual assaults go unreported, an indication that some women are worried about the effect reporting an assault may have on their career and that they mistrust the military prosecution system. Nearly 3,200 sexual assaults were reported in the military last year. Military leaders say sexual assault is not only dehumanizing to the victims but threatens operational readiness. The Pentagon has set up hotlines and has been trying to encourage service members to help victims. High-ranking Navy leaders have likened their campaign to the crusade years ago to stop rampant drug abuse, although activists say sweeping institutional changes are needed for victims to find justice. Directed by Lesli Linka Glatter, “Lauren” sets out to show viewers how unfair and unsympathetic the military can be toward the abuse of female service members. At the same time, it depicts the turmoil of many of the victims — who have a deep love and respect for the military but often feel betrayed after coming forward. The series opens with an Army commanding officer — Maj. Jo Stone, played by Beals — scrutinizing a report made by a sergeant named Lauren about being raped by three fellow soldiers. Stone asks the young soldier if she ever considered a career as a fiction writer and then asks how many drinks she had the night of the “incident.” She provides an ominous warning if she pursues her accusations. “Even if the men are deemed guilty, they’re likely to suffer a reprimand or a slight pay cut, nothing more,” Stone tells the soldier. “But WHAT will happen to you may

“My hope is people will see that this is not slandering this great institution but rather holding it up to a high standard and asking it to recognize there is an issue and that it should be addressed. It’s not anti-military at all.”
— Troian Bellisario expose you to repercussions for your entire career.” After today’s debut, the second and third episodes in the series will be available Wednesday and Friday. Beals told The Associated Press her character’s words may at first seem hurtful and harsh but later viewers realize it’s more complex for the commanding officer, who herself has had to fight her way up through the ranks. “Even though she seems so hard,

Missing Syrian journalist believed dead
By BASSEM MROUE The Associated Press BEIRUT — A pro-government Syrian TV station said today one of its cameramen who was kidnapped three days ago is believed to be dead while the others are being held by rebels near the capital Damascus. The station said gunmen kidnapped the cameraman Friday along with three other employees of the pro-regime Al-Ikhbariya TV while covering the violence in the Damascus suburb of al-Tal. The three surviving members of the team appeared in an online video, saying they were being held by rebel forces who were treating them well. A man who identified himself as a rebel spokesman also appeared in the video, saying the cameraman and two members of the Free Syrian Army rebel group were killed in government shelling while on a tour in al-Tal to shoot destruction in the area. It was impossible to independently verify the events shown in the video. But the general manager of Al-Ikhbariya TV said they believe the cameraman is dead. In June, gunmen raided Al-Ikhbariya’s headquarters, killing seven employees. The death came as activists reported clashes and shelling between government troops and rebels in areas including

there is one little flicker of humanity,” Beals said, adding later: “You have to get to the end (of the series) before you realize what the real story is.” Bellisario said in an interview that she was drawn to the script because even though her father, “NCIS” and “JAG” producer Donald P. Bellisario, served in the Marine Corps, she was not aware of the institutional barriers in today’s military that deter many female service members from reporting sexual assaults. “The biggest problem when you’re overseas and you’re serving, is all you have is the guy or girl next to you and your commanding officer,” Bellisario said. “If your commanding officer does not want to do it (report the rape), then you have nowhere else to go.” More than a dozen U.S. veterans who say they were raped or assaulted by comrades filed a class-action suit in federal court last year attempting to force the Pentagon to change how it handles such cases. The current and former service members — 15 women and two men — described circumstances in which servicemen allegedly got away with rape and other sexual abuse while their vic-

Damascus and its suburbs, the central province of Homs, and the southern region of Daraa. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 30 people were killed so far today, 24 of them civilians while the others were soldiers or rebels. Activists also released a video which they said showed a government Soviet-made Mig warplane catching fire apparently after it was hit by ground fire over the eastern province of Deir el-Zour. The warplane appears to be turning into a ball of flame, although it was impossible to independently verify the video. Rami Abdul-Rahman, who heads the Observatory, could not confirm the video, saying he was told by locals that the rebels captured the pilot, a colonel, alive. Abdul-Rahman said he is waiting for another video that either shows the body of the plane or the pilot. Activists say more than 20,000 people have been killed since the revolt began in March 2011. Journalists have suffered a number of casualties in the 17-month-old uprising against President Bashar Assad, and in recent months there have been several attacks on pro-regime media. On Saturday, a reporter for state-run news agency SANA was killed in his Damascus home, while another working for the pan-Arab Al-Arabiya TV was killed in a blast in Tal.

Pope’s butler, 2nd layman face trial in theft case
By FRANCES D’EMILIO The Associated Press
VATICAN CITY — A Vatican judge today ordered the pope’s butler and a fellow lay employee to stand trial in the scandal of pilfered documents from Pope Benedict XVI’s private apartment. The indictment accused Paolo Gabriele, the butler under arrest at the Vatican since May, of grand theft. While the Vatican had insisted throughout the investigation that Gabriele was the only person under investigation, the indictment also orders trial for Claudio Sciarpelletti. He is a layman in the Secretariat of State office and is charged with aiding and

tims were ordered to continue to serve with them. In several cases, the aggressors continued to call them names and taunt them. Bellisario hopes the series will help push efforts to prevent sexual assault and prosecute it to the full degree. “My hope is people will see that this is not slandering this great institution but rather holding it up to a high standard and asking it to recognize there is an issue and that it should be addressed,” she said. “It’s not anti-military at all.” Anuradha Bhagwati is a former Marine Corps captain and executive director of the Service Women’s Action Network, which advocates for such policy changes. She was allowed to preview the series and says it gives a realistic picture of what thousands of female service members face, especially its depiction of the retaliation and name calling victims often suffer. According to Bhagwati’s organization, the Defense Department’s own statistics show that fewer than one in five of these cases are even referred for court martial. She says part of the problem is unit commanders are the judge and jury in these types of cases and there needs to be an impartial party involved.

abetting Gabriele. The scandal has embarrassed the Vatican, exposing infighting at high church levels, primarily involving Italian prelates. The Vatican has promised a public trial. No date was immediately announced, but officials said it would be no earlier than late September. The Vatican tribunal returns from summer recess on Sept. 20. Judge Piero Antonio Bonnet ruled that there was no evidence to indict Sciarpelletti — a computer expert in the secretary of state’s office who knows Gabriele — on a charge of revealing secrets and insufficient evidence for a charge of grand theft.

The Herald – 11A

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2012 In the year ahead, you are likely to get involved in a sideline endeavor with a friend or two. With time, you will all come to a realization that there is a market out there for your wares, just waiting to be tapped. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Abide by your ability to make logical assessments whenever you can, because your intuitive powers are also likely to come into play and help you make excellent decisions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -This will be a much more enjoyable day for you if you share some time with very good friends. You’ll enjoy pals whose interests parallel yours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Let your colleagues know that your standards and virtues are unassailable, especially if they’re trying to cut corners in ways that you don’t approve of. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -When you choose to use it, the ability to keep things in proper perspective is one of your greatest assets. In those cases, you won’t take yourself or developments too seriously. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You’re more than likely to feel obligated to help someone you like resolve a problem. When you do so, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Although your reasoning powers are pretty good, your partner’s could be even better. Before making any important decision, be sure to discuss it with him or her. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It is important for you to find some practical outlets for your time and talents. If you fail to do so and just coast along, you’ll end up feeling it was a wasted day. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Find a practical way to spend time and talent on an important project; if you fail to do so, you are likely to feel very guilty. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -This is a good day to take care of a matter you’ve wanted to clear up for some time but haven’t yet had the chance. The results will be everything you hoped they’d be. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your mental and creative faculties are likely to be a bit keener than usual, so put them to work on a difficult project. It should be easy to handle now. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Anything you’re promoting or selling for public consumption could turn out to be very profitable. Your touting skills will be at an all-time high. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -This is one of those days when you should be able to focus your energies and efforts on personal interests. You should be able to do whatever you want, free from interference. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2012 Your progress in the year ahead is likely to be measured not only by the way you handle large issues, but by your attention to small, important matters as well. Step by step and line by line, you can make multiple impressive achievements. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- In certain situations where you are required to exercise authority over others, make your wishes known in as pleasant a way as possible, in order to get your way. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Things in general should work out rather well, due to your shrewd use of your assets and abilities. What your logic overlooks, your instincts will take care of. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Perhaps one of your greatest gifts is your ability to get along with people from all walks of life. This splendid quality is likely to be in big effect currently. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Try to focus your efforts on meaningful objectives while you’re in such a good achievement cycle. Don’t waste your time on matters of little significance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- It behooves you to treat developments philosophically, regardless of whether they are beneficial or harmful. A good attitude keeps things in perspective. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An investment does not have to produce a huge profit in order to be classified as a success. Be alert for all kinds of opportunities, both big and small. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Should a difficult decision vie for your attention, face up to it courageously. Being wishy-washy is the worst thing you can do, and would more than likely cause your defeat. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Instead of just doing what is expected of you, go for broke and produce as much as you can. Your industriousness will not go unnoticed or unrewarded. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Anything you can handle yourself should not be pawned off onto someone else. While you’re on a roll, others may not be, so do the chores yourself and everyone will end up happy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Be the one who moves forward on a deal, even if those with whom you’re involved don’t want to come on board. Conditions favor finalizing matters to your satisfaction. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Even if you have to put your salesmanship skills to the test, it shouldn’t be too hard for you to come away with what you want, regardless of how tough your prospect is. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Small details could actually be of far greater significance than the larger issues. Fortunately for you, these critical factors aren’t likely to escape your attention.

Ohio hospital shooting: Mercy killing or murder?
By THOMAS J. SHEERAN and JOHN SEEWER Associated Press CLEVELAND — John Wise watched a tear roll down his wife’s face as he stood alongside her bed in the intensive care unit. She’d been unable to speak after suffering a stroke and seemed to be blinking to acknowledge him, Wise confided to a friend who had driven him to the hospital. The couple had been married 45 years and Wise told his friend that they had agreed long ago they didn’t want to live out their years bedridden and disabled. So a week after Barbara Wise’s stroke, investigators say, her husband fired a single round into her head. She died the next day, leading prosecutors to charge the 66-year-old man with aggravated murder Wednesday in what police suspect was a mercy killing. The shooting leaves authorities in a dilemma some experts say will happen with greater frequency in coming years as the baby boom generation ages — what is the appropriate punishment when a relative kills a loved one to end their suffering? More often than not, a husband who kills an ailing wife never goes to trial and lands a plea deal with a sentence that carries no more than a few years in prison, research has shown. In some instances, there are no charges. “It’s a tragedy all around that the law really isn’t designed to address,” said Mike Benza, who teaches law at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. A New York man in March was sentenced to six months in jail after suffocating his 98-year-old disabled mother and slitting his own wrists. He told authorities he had just been told he had cancer and believed he was going to die soon, and feared no one would care for his mom. A Washington state man accused of shooting his terminally ill wife this year told investigators she had begged him to kill her; he is free on bail while prosecutors weigh charges. Almost always, there are deeper issues involved with the accused, including depression, their own health problems and the stress of taking care of a dying spouse, said Donna Cohen, head of the Violence and Injury Prevention Program at the University of South Florida. Seeing a dying or disabled spouse suffering can be enough to push someone over the edge, said Cohen, who is writing a book called “Caregivers Who Kill.” “Men will hit a wall when they can’t do anything else,” she said. “That’s usually a trigger.” She worries this will happen more often with longer life expectancies and a continuing shortage of mental health services for older people. In the early 2000s, testifying a Florida legislative committee, Cohen cited research showing that two in five homicide-suicides in the state involved people 55 and older. The number of cases grew among older people while staying the same with those under 55. Police say Wise took a taxi from his home in Massillon, calmly walked into his 65-year-old wife’s room on Aug. 4 at Akron General Medical Center without drawing any attention, and shot her. Juries are often sympathetic to those who kill a spouse out of what is portrayed to be love and compassion, but the message that sends is unclear, said Wesley J. Smith, a California lawyer who wrote a 2006 book “Forced Exit: Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide and the New Duty to Die.” “Where’s the stopping point?” he said. “There almost comes to become a cultural acceptance that certain people are better off dead than alive.” Those who kill a loved one to end the suffering are acting out of their interests, he said. “We’re really putting Grandpa out of our misery,” Smith said. Wise’s lawyer has said that he was a good man who was devoted to his wife. “I am absolutely confident that everything that he’s ever done for his wife has been done out of deep love, including the events that just recently transpired,” said attorney Paul Adamson. The former welder also suffered from nerve damage that made his hands and feet numb, survived bladder cancer and had diabetes, said Terry Henderson, a 30-year steel plant co-worker.

Navy ship collides with oil tanker
By MICHAEL CASEY Associated Press

Those issues could help his case if it goes to trial. “The facts surrounding her death are sympathetic and may actually foster a plea before trial,” said Jeff Laybourne, a prominent Akron defense attorney. But just because his wife may have been suffering isn’t a valid defense under the law, Laybourne said. Other factors that could determine whether the case goes to trial include the timing of the shooting and that it happened in such a public place. Henderson thinks Wise may have snapped under the weight of both of their health concerns. “He never dreamed, given his history of medical problems, that this would happen to her before he’d go,” Henderson said. That kind of situation can be deeply depressing for a person dependent on the care of a spouse who suddenly is disabled, said Dr. Peter DeGolia, a physician specializing in care for the aging at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. “If this man was dependent on his wife for care and basic well-being, and suddenly she’s gone, he’s going to feel very vulnerable, highly at risk,” he said. “Older white males are the highest risk group for carrying out suicide plans.” It’s a scenario that DeGolia said can be defused with help from social workers and hospice care for the dying. “There are lots of options,” he said, “aside from going and shooting them.”

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer was left with a gaping hole on one side after it collided with an oil tanker early Sunday just outside the strategic Strait of Hormuz. The collision left a breach about 10 feet by 10 feet (three by three meters) in the starboard side of USS Porter. No one was injured on either vessel, the U.S. Navy said in a statement. The collision with the Panamanian-flagged and Japaneseowned bulk oil tanker M/V Otowasan happened about 1 a.m. local time. Photos released by the Navy showed workers standing amid twisted metal and other debris hanging down from the hole. The cause of the incident is under investigation, the Navy said, though the collision was not “combat related.” There were no reports of spills or leakages from either the USS Porter or the Otowasan, the Navy said. Navy spokesman Greg Raelson said the destroyer now is in port in Jebel Ali, Dubai. “We’re just happy there were no injuries,” he said. “An investigation is under way.” The USS Porter is on a scheduled deployment to the U.S. 5th Fleet, which is based in Bahrain, an island nation in the Gulf, near Iran. The Strait of Hormuz, at the mouth of the Gulf, is a crowded and tense waterway where one-fifth of the world’s oil is routed. Tensions have risen there over repeated Iranian threats to block tanker traffic in retaliation for tighter sanctions by the West. The sanctions are aimed at persuading Iran to abandon its uranium enrichment program, so far without success. Tensions in the Strait of Hormuz show no sign of abating. The United States stoked the flames recently with an announcement that it will send U.S. Navy minesweepers and warships into the Gulf for exercises. The U.S. military maneuvers scheduled for September, to be joined by ships from about 20 American allies.
