Green Energy Tour to visit Van Wert County
BY ED GEBERT DHI correspondent VAN WERT — No place in the Buckeye State has as much to offer in the way of working wind energy as Van Wert County. On Thursday, this county, along with Paulding County, will host persons wanting to get a look at the utility-scale wind turbines in action. Green Energy Ohio is hosting a Wind Farm Tour this week in cooperation with the Ohio Farm Bureau, bringing a busload of people to the area from Urbana, Bellefontaine, and Wapakoneta. Those taking the free tour will spend the afternoon visiting three sites of interest to those who have questions about the large turbines or just want an up-close look. The first site is near Cooper Farms Cooked Meats near the intersection of U.S. 127 and Convoy Rd. Cooper Farms already has two Goldwind 1.5 MW turbines fully functioning, supplying about half of the electric energy needed to power the plant. Ground was broken just two weeks ago for a

Medicare to fine hospitals for readmitted patients
By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR The Associated Press WASHINGTON — If you or an elderly relative have been hospitalized recently and noticed extra attention when the time came to be discharged, there’s more to it than good customer service. As of today, Medicare will start fining hospitals that have too many patients readmitted within 30 days of discharge due to complications. The penalties are part of a broader push under President Barack Obama’s health care law to improve quality while also trying to save taxpayers money. About two-thirds of the hospitals serving Medicare patients, or some 2,200 facilities, will be hit with penalties averaging around $125,000 per facility this coming year, according to government estimates. Data to assess the penalties have been collected and crunched, and Medicare has
third turbine, which company officials say should provide 75 percent of the plant’s power needs. From the Cooper site, the tour will get a look at the 152 Gamesa 2 MW turbines that make up the Blue Creek Wind Farm spread across northeastern Van Wert County and into Paulding County. Wind farm Operations Manager Neil Voje will be on hand, as well as Van Wert County Commissioner Clair Dudgeon to answer questions. The third stop is Haviland Drainage Products where three Goldwind 1.5 MW wind turbines are currently being installed. The energy from the three turbines will be used by the manufacturing facility. Local residents can join the tour at Cooper Farms at approximately 1 p.m. Although there is no cost for the tour, reservations are needed to insure bus space. Contact Emily Sautter at 216789-5248 or Emily@greenenergyohio.org and let her know where you will board the bus. A boxed lunch is available for those boarding in Urbana, Bellfontaine and Wapakoneta for $10.

It adds up to a new way of doing business for hospitals, and they have scrambled to prepare for well over a year. They are working on ways to improve communication with rehabilitation centers and doctors who follow patients after they’re released, as well as connecting individually with patients. “There is a lot of activity at the hospital level to straighten out our internal processes,” said Nancy Foster, vice president for quality and safety at the American Hospital Association. “We are also spreading our wings a little and reaching outside the hospital, to the extent that we can, to make sure patients are getting the ongoing treatment See MEDICARE, page 2

WASHINGTON (AP) — Convicted D.C. sniper Lee Boyd Malvo said in a newspaper interview published Sunday that the devastated reaction of a victim’s husband made him feel like “the worst piece of scum.” Malvo expresses remorse in the interview with The Washington Post and urged the families of victims to try and forget about him and his partner John Allen Muhammad so they can move on. Tuesday marks the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the deadly spree in the Washington area carried out by Malvo and John Allen Muhammad. The pair has been linked to 27 shootings across the country, including 10 fatal attacks in the Washington area. Malvo, 27, told the Post in a rare interview that the look on the face of victim Linda Franklin’s husband right after she was shot stands out in his memory of the rampage. Franklin, a 47-year-old FBI analyst, was killed as she and her husband loaded supplies
Newspaper: Malvo like ‘worst piece of scum’
outside a Home Depot in Falls Church, Va. “They are penetrating,” Malvo said of Ted Franklin’s eyes. “It is the worst sort of pain I have ever seen in my life. His eyes ... Words do not possess the depth in which to fully convey that emotion and what I felt when I saw it. ... You feel like the worst piece of scum on the planet.” Malvo is serving a life sentence with no parole at a prison in southwest Virginia for killing Franklin. Muhammad was executed in Virginia in 2009 The sniper-style attacks all but paralyzed the nation’s capital, as people were shot at random while going about their everyday life — pumping gas, buying groceries, and for one young boy, as he went to school. The shooters used a high-powered rifle, firing from the trunk of a modified Chevy Caprice until they were tracked down at a Maryland rest stop. Malvo also repeated previous assertions that he was manipulated by the older Muhammad during the string of attacks that took place when Malvo was 17. But he acknowledges: “I was a monster.” Malvo has declined to respond to many media requests, including letters from The Associated Press. He was interviewed in 2010 for a cable TV special. When asked by the Post what he would say to victims’ families, the remorseful Malvo said there’s no way to properly convey an apology. “We can never change what happened,” Malvo said. “There’s nothing that I can say except don’t allow me and my actions to continue to victimize you for the rest of your life.” He added: “Don’t allow myself or Muhammad to continue to make you a victim for the rest of your life. It isn’t worth it.” Linda Franklin’s father, Charles Moore, was incredulous about the idea that victims’ relatives would be able to forget about what Malvo and Muhammad did.

they need.” Still, industry officials say they have misgivings about being held liable for circumstances beyond their control. They also complain that facilities serving low-income people, including many major teaching hospitals, are much more likely to be fined, raising questions of fairness. “Readmissions are partially within the control of the hospital and partially within the control of others,” Foster said. Consumer advocates say Medicare’s nudge to hospitals is long overdue and not nearly stiff enough. “It’s modest, but it’s a start,” said Dr. John Santa, director of the Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center. “Should we be surprised that industry is objecting? You would expect them to object to anything that changes the status quo.” For the first year, the penalty is capped at 1 percent of a hospital’s Medicare payments. The overwhelming majority of penalized facilities will pay less. Also, for now, hospitals are only being measured on three medical conditions: heart attacks, heart failure and pneumonia. Under the health care law, the penalties gradually will rise until 3 percent of Medicare payments to hospitals are at risk. Medicare is considering holding hospitals accountable on four more measures: joint replacements, stenting, heart bypass and treatment of stroke. Excessive rates of readmission are only part of the problem of high costs and uneven quality in the U.S. health care system. While some estimates put readmission rates as high as 20 percent, a congressional agency says the level of preventable readmissions is much lower. About 12 percent of Medicare beneficiaries who are hospitalized are later readmitted for a potentially preventable problem, said the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, known as MedPAC.

Ohio gas prices holding steady
Ohio church dedicates iconic Jesus statue
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio motorists will see gas prices holding steady as they begin a new work week. The average price for a gallon of regular gas in the state was $3.72 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s just a penny higher than a week ago. Prices at the pump have dropped in the past few weeks after several factors pushed them to near the $4 mark last month. A month ago, the average gas price in Ohio was $3.89. This time last year, the Ohio average was $3.22. The national average today was $3.78, down 3 cents from a week ago.
Enrollment in online schools passes 30,000
CLEVELAND (AP) — Enrollment in online schools in Ohio has passed 30,000, more than 12 times the number in 2000 when the first “virtual” school opened in the state. Only Arizona had more students enrolled full time in online schools in 201011, according to an annual report by the Evergreen Education Group. Online students attend classes online and do lessons by computer, often at home, typing in tests and papers to be reviewed by a teacher elsewhere. Most Ohio students enrolled in virtual schools, about 90 percent, attend one of the seven statewide online schools, according to a story Sunday by The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer and the StateImpact Ohio collaboration among National Public Radio and Ohio public-radio stations WCPN, WKSU and WOSU. Although scattered around the state, the online students combined would make up the third-largest district in Ohio — about the size of the Cincinnati schools. The online schools are charters, independently operated but publicly funded. Robert Mengerink, head of Cuyahoga County’s Educational Service Center, said online schools are convenient but, “You can’t sleep in the back of the room in an online course.” Ohio has lifted a moratorium on creating new online schools, which had been imposed in 2005. In 2013, up to five new online schools can start in the state, though the Ohio Department of Education says none has yet announced plans. Gary Miron, co-author of national studies about online schools and their operators for the National Education Policy Center, which receives some funding from the National Education Association, said Ohio has fewer requirements for online schools than most other states. He cited items like financial reporting, student-to-teacher ratios, and how long students have to stay in a school or pass state tests in order for schools to receive state money. Ohio legislators have postponed establishing rules about how online schools should teach and be

MONROE (AP) — A southern Ohio church has drawn a standing-room crowd for the dedication of a giant likeness of Jesus Christ that replaced a similar iconic statue destroyed two years ago in a lightning fire. The Dayton Daily News reports that the Solid Rock Church in Monroe, north of Cincinnati, dedicated the 51-foot statue at a service Sunday night. Nicknamed “Hug Me Jesus,” the lighted statue depicts a full-bodied Jesus who’s standing with open arms. It looms over the adjacent lanes of Interstate 75. The previous statue that was ruined by lightning in 2010 was known as “Touchdown Jesus” or “Big Butter Jesus” for its creamy color. It depicted a waist-up Jesus with arms uplifted. Sculptor Tom Tsuchiya received a standing ovation from the crowd Sunday night.
evaluated. Last year’s state budget set a deadline: If the legislature doesn’t take action by January, standards set by the International Association for K-12 Online Learning will automatically take effect. Most of Ohio’s full-time online schools are operated by local school districts and educational service centers. Ohio’s online schools have become a big business. The state paid online charter schools $209 million in 2010-11 to educate students, or an average of $6,337 per student. Results are mixed at both for-profit and district-run schools. Online students have lower graduation rates than those at traditional schools. They attend college at a lower rate. At the same time, other measures have shown online students learning as much as, or more than, students in many districts. In 2010-11, all seven statewide online schools met value-added measures, criteria the state has used the last few years to determine if students make a year’s worth of academic progress in a year’s time.

Toledo Zoo Aquarium getting makeover
TOLEDO (AP) — The Toledo Zoo Aquarium will get a $25 million, nearly three-year makeover. The renovation shutdown began after Sunday’s final day open to the public. It’s expected to reopen in April 2015. Fishes and invertebrate curator Jay Hemdal says the inside of the building, which opened in 1939, will undergo an extensive renovation. The interior size will stay the same but the water volume of exhibits will more than triple to 178,000 gallons from 46,000 gallons. The largest exhibit will expand to take up an entire rotunda. Hemdal tells The (Toledo) Blade the renovated aquarium will be more interactive and engaging. According to Hemdal, the aquarium will have several hands-on exhibits, and the large tank will include a microphoned diver who will give educational talks while feeding the fish. The brick and stone features of the last of the zoo buildings created by the Works Progress Administration won’t be sacrificed in the remodel, said Jeff Sailer, the zoo’s executive director. “The outside of the building will remain mostly untouched,” Sailer said. About 80 percent of the money for the project is coming from the proceeds of the 2006 Lucas County tax levy. The remaining 20 percent is coming from private donations. It will be the first major renovation of the building in its 73-year history. Boilers dating from the 1950s were replaced in 1998 with a geothermal heating system, which will be incorporated into the renovation Preparation for the renovation goes back several years when the zoo stopped receiving new fish and started making plans on where to move the fish that would not be staying at the zoo during the move. About 25 percent will be moved and remain at a warehouse on the zoo grounds. The remaining 75 percent have already started off for about a dozen other accredited zoo aquariums.

“Talent alone won’t make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. The most important question is: ‘Are your ready?”’ — Johnny Carson (1925-2005)
Another big Supreme Court term starts today
By MARK SHERMAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is starting a new term that is shaping up to be as important as the last one, with the prospect of major rulings about affirmative action, gay marriage and voting rights. Three months after the court upheld President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, the same lineup of justices returns to the bench this morning. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s liberals in sustaining the health care law, drawing liberals’ plaudits and conservatives’ anger. This term’s big cases seem likely to have Roberts in his more accustomed role of voting with his fellow conservatives and leave Justice Anthony Kennedy with his typically decisive vote in cases that otherwise split the court’s liberals and conservatives. But Roberts will be watched closely for additional signs that he is becoming less ideologically predictable. A fight over the University of Texas’ affirmative action program is the first blockbuster case on the court’s calendar, with argument scheduled for Oct. 10. Texas By JULIE PACE The Associated Press uses multiple factors, including community service, work experience, extracurricular activities, awards and race, to help fill the last 20 to 25 percent of the spots in its freshman classes. The outcome could further limit or even end the use of racial preferences in college admissions. The court also is expected to confront gay marriage in some form. Several cases seek to guarantee federal benefits for legally married same-sex couples. A provision of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act deprives samesex couples of a range of federal benefits available to heterosexual couples. Several federal courts have agreed that the provision of the law is unconstitutional, a situation that practically ensures that the high court will step in. A separate appeal asks the justices to sustain California’s Proposition 8, the amendment to the state constitution that outlawed gay marriage in the nation’s largest state. Federal courts in California have struck down the amendment. The justices may not even consider whether to hear the gay marriage issue until November. Another hot topic with

Obama, Romney hunker down for debate prep
HENDERSON, Nev. — Nearing their first face-off, President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are hunkering down for intense preparations ahead of Wednesday’s presidential debate, where the GOP nominee hopes to change the trajectory of the White House race. Obama was huddling Monday with top advisers at a desert resort in Nevada. Romney had practice planned in Massachusetts, where he also spent most of the weekend working with his debate team. The Republican challenger was then headed to Denver, the site of the first debate, later Monday for a rally and more preparation for the high-stakes event. Five weeks from Election Day, polls show Romney trailing Obama in many of the nine states that will determine the outcome of the White House race. The three October debates give Romney one of his best opportunities to stem Obama’s momentum and convince the public to back his vision for the nation’s future. “What I’m most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security to hardworking Americans,” Obama said during a rally in Las Vegas Sunday night. “That is what people are going to be listening for. That’s the debate you deserve.” As the candidates prepped for a debate focused on domestic issues, Republicans were keeping up the pressure on Obama on international issues, namely his administration’s handling of the attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya that led to the death of the American ambassador and three others. Romney, in an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal, repeated his criticism of Obama for having called the attack and other unrest in the Middle East “bumps in the road.” “Our country seems to be at the mercy of events rather than shaping them,” Romney wrote. “We’re not moving them in a direction that protects our people or our allies.” Romney planned to deliver a major foreign policy speech in the coming weeks. Both candidates were spending the days leading
appeals pending before the high court, and more soon to follow, is the future of a cornerstone law of the civil rights movement. In 2006, Congress overwhelmingly approved, and President George W. Bush signed, legislation extending for 25 more years a critical piece of the Voting Rights Act. It requires states and local governments with a history of racial and ethnic discrimination, mainly in the South, to get advance approval either from the Justice Department or the federal court in Washington before making any changes that affect elections. The court spoke skeptically about the provision in a 2009 decision, but left it mostly unchanged. Now, however, cases from Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas could prompt the court to deal head on with the issue of advance approval. The South Carolina and Texas cases involve voter identification laws; a similar Indiana law was previously upheld by the court. It is unclear when the justices will decide whether to hear arguments in those cases. Arguments themselves would not take place until next year.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
WASHINGTON — Gloria Steinem is unmistakable. Across the room surrounded by a clutch of admirers, she is utterly ageless — sleek and svelte in black form-fitting pants and top, a gold braided belt with sparkly fleurettes draped along her slender hips. At 78, she looks, well, fabulous. “I suppose it’s not very feminist of us to comment on how great she looks,” says the woman next to me, apparently feeling compelled to inject the appropriate corrective. But at a certain age, isn’t a woman happy to accept a compliment? And haven’t we come a long way, baby? Judging by the current debate in some Republican circles, one has occasion to pause and wonder. The purpose of the Thursday evening gathering in a private home was to celebrate “Makers: The Women Who Make America,” a multiplatform video production from PBS, AOL and Makers. com, which launched in February 2012. The documentary chronicles the history of the women’s movement and features women who have, indeed, made things happen so that subsequent generations could do what women were not allowed to do not so long ago — to become doctors, lawyers, legislators, secretaries of state and, perhaps, even president.
Among those assembled were seven of the Makers who appear in the film, including, in addition to Steinem, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, actress Marlo “That Girl” Thomas, Rebecca Adamson (founder of First Peoples Worldwide), Karen Nussbaum (executive director of Working America and founder of 9to5), Malika Saada Saar (executive director, Human Rights Project for Girls) and Muriel Siebert (the first woman to earn a seat on the New York Stock Exchange and namesake of the investment firm Siebert & Co.). That’s quite a lot of feminine — and feminist — power in one room. Quoting John F. Kennedy, Steinem said there hasn’t been so much talent in one place since Thomas Jefferson was alone in a room. “Except now,” she cracked, “we know Sally Hemings was probably doing the writing.” The centerpiece of the evening was a preview of excerpts from the documentary, which is scheduled for release in February 2013, the 50th anniversary of Betty Friedan’s “The Feminine Mystique.” In one interview, Ginsburg recalls being one of nine women in a class of 500 men at Harvard Law School. Ginsburg remembered being herded into a room with the other women where a professor asked why they were
up to the debate in battleground states, with Romney in Colorado and Obama in Nevada. Each had just one official event planned during his stay, but they hoped their mere presence in the states would drive local media coverage. Obama left the lakeside resort where he is prepping for the debate briefly Sunday evening for a rally at a Las Vegas high school. The 11,000-person event was focused in part on rallying Hispanics, a key source of support for the president in Nevada, and featured a performance by the popular Mexican rock band Mana. Keeping with his campaign’s efforts to lower expectations, Obama told the crowd that while he was “just OK” at debating, his opponent was “a good debater.” Romney’s team has been playing the expectations game as well, though his allies were sometimes pushing the stakes in opposite directions. GOP running mate Paul Ryan on Sunday shot down the notion that Romney needed to have a breakthrough performance Wednesday night, saying he didn’t think one event would make or break the campaign.
Point of View
taking up seats that could be filled with men. She later transferred to Columbia University, where she finished first in her class. Other women tell similar, barrier-breaking tales. All remind us that women really have come a long way, often, one hastens to mention, with the help of enlightened men. Ginsburg paid homage to her husband, who gave up his own successful law practice to follow her to Washington so that she could accept her place on the Supreme Court. He never felt slighted, she said, noting that he was also an excellent cook. The film, which deserves to be a family event and is certain to spark animated conversations, provides recognition along with reminders that women’s rights didn’t just happen. They were earned by generations of women who refused to accept that they were limited by their sex. Being demure wasn’t part of the strategy. Sometimes, one of the interviewees said, you have to kick down the door. The value of the film
can’t be overstated. We have lived in a feminist world for decades, yet younger generations have no sense of the struggle. And though we are correctly horrified at the disenfranchisement of women in other parts of the world, it is useful to recall that American women’s freedoms are relatively fresh. Steinem, her fire somewhat tempered by time and grace, noted that loss of memory is the source of oppression. For centuries, women’s stories weren’t told. Women had no place at the campfire, as she put it. Had there been a “Makers” initiative earlier in our history, said Steinem, we might have known that Mozart had a sister, whom Mozart called “the talented one.” We might have known that before there was Martin Luther King, there was Ella Baker, the African-American civil and human rights activist from the 1930s. That the guide and translator for Lewis and Clark was a woman who made the same trip the men did while pregnant, nursing and carrying a toddler. The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist, Steinem insists, nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights. Here’s to memory. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.

LadyCats 2nd at own cross country invitational
By CHARLIE WARNIMONT DHI Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org KALIDA – Kalida’s girls cross country had a strong showing at the Wildcats Invitational at the Kalida Fish and Game Club Saturday. The Lady Wildcats had three of the top five finishers as they ran to a second-place finish overall in the girls varsity race. They had 79 points as Ottawa-Glandorf won the team title with 68 points. Elida finished seventh in the nine full-team field with 161 points. In the boys division, Kalida finished seventh with 187 points and Elida was 10th with 215 points. St. Marys won the boys team title with 51 points and O-G was second with 70 points. Running on their home course on a cool but sunny morning, the Kalida girls made a run for the team title. Senior Jessica Doepker won the race in a time of 20:18. Doepker went to the front of the field early and pulled away from the rest of the runners as she won by 20 seconds over sophomore teammate Jackie Gardner as she finished in 20:38. Freshman Katelyn Siebeneck finished fifth in 21:07. Katie Schmitz finished 33rd in 23:17 and Becca Brinkman finished 45th in 24:09 for the Wildcats. “I was real proud of the girls today, they ran an excellent race for this point in the season,” Kalida coach Rob Schnippel said. “We had three finishers in the top five and our fourth and fifth runners came in very respectable. Jessica is getting back to being healthy and she is running very well. Jackie did a great job today and Katelyn is right up there and running very well.” Tori Bowen led the Elida girls with an eighth-place finish in 21:28 and Aly Turrentine was 17th in 22:07. Kaiti Hinegardner was 44th in 24:05, Rachel Kerber was 58th in 26:13 and Hannah Malone was 59th in 26:13. Megan Joseph finished 10th for St. John’s — who did not have enough harriers in either the girls or boys race for a team score — in 21:30. Anna Mueller finished 31st in 22:44 and Teresa Pohlman was 55th in 25:13. Grant Zeller led the Kalida boys with a 10th-place finish in 18:08. Eric Warnecke finished 33rd in 19:23 and Jacob Dunn was 43rd in 20:10. “The boys ran well,” Schnippel said. “They continue to get better each team and that is what we are looking for.” Curtis Pohlman led the Blue Jays with an eighth-place fin-

Lady Musketeers shut out ’Dawgs FORT JENNINGS — Fort Jennings controlled its non-league girls soccer match with Elida Saturday as the Musketeers collected a 4-0 win at home. Seniors Kristen Maag, Elaina Maag and Macy Schroeder and junior Marissa Mesker all had a goal for the Musketeers. Elaina Maag and Kristen Maag both had an assist. Fort Jennings outshot the Bulldogs 13-8 and won the corner kicks 4-1 as senior Gabbie German had eight saves and senior Rachel Foust had six saves for the Bulldogs. “We controlled the game from the start; we went to every 50/50 ball and won almost every challenge. Our first goal was scored with 34 minutes on the clock when Elaina chipped it over the keeper to Marissa, who was sprinting past the defense and the keeper; Marissa walked the ball into the goal,” Musketeer mentor Rodney Wagner explained. “Our second goal came with 32:41 left in the first half; Kristen took a corner kick and Macy charged into the box and volleyed the ball from about the 12-yard line. The ball was moved back and forth to both ends of the field and neither team got a good look the rest of the half. In the second half, the scoring started at 25:43 when we took about three shots inside the 6-yard mark and the ball was mishandled; Elaina took a shot from less then six yards out and slid the ball past the keeper. The final score came at 1:43 when Kristen took the ball down to the touch line and fired a shot that slid past Foust for the last goal.” The host won the junior varsity match 3-0.

Cross Country results Comeback complete,
MEDINAH, Ill. — Europe buried the memory of that American comeback at Brookline in 1999 with one that was even better. Medinah was filled with sheer madness Sunday, the matches so close for so much of the day that even when Martin Kaymer stood over a 6-foot par putt on the 18th hole to clinch it, the Ryder Cup was up in air. The putt was pure and the celebration was on. “It will go down in the history books of the Ryder Cup,” said European captain Jose Maria Olazabal. The size of the comeback was equal to what the Americans pulled off at The Country Club but at least they had help from endless cheers of the home crowd. Not many gave Europe much of a chance until Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia turned what looked to be certain losses into improbable wins, filling the scoreboard with European blue. “What you did out there today was outstanding,” Olazabal told his team at the closing ceremony. “You believed and you delivered. And I’m very proud that you have kept Europe’s hands on this Ryder Cup. All men die but not all men live. And you made me feel alive again this week.” Then, Olazabal bowed his head and closed his eyes as they filled with tears and the (Corbin 6-8), 9:40 p.m. San Francisco (Zito 14-8) at L.A.

the lineup all won, including Rory McIlroy, who was lucky to be playing. McIlroy thought his match was at 12:25 p.m. — it was listed in Eastern time, not Central — and needed a police escort to get to the course with 10 minutes to spare. Then, he came up with key birdies to hand Keegan Bradley his first loss of the week. The biggest match might have belonged to Rose. He was on the verge of losing to Mickelson when Rose holed a 12-foot par putt to halve the 16th, made a 35-foot birdie putt from the back of the 17th green to win the hole and then closed out Mickelson with a 12-foot birdie on the last hole. Six of the 12 matches went to the 18th hole on Sunday. The Americans won only one of them. “Today was certainly not what we expect,” U.S. captain Davis Love III said. “We’re all kind of stunned. We know what it feels like now from the ‘99 Ryder Cup. It’s a little bit shocking. We were playing so well, we figured it didn’t matter how we sent them out there.

Keselowski emerges late to win at Dover
By DAN GELSTON The Associated Press DOVER, Del. — Brad Keselowski had fuel to spare for a couple of victory burnouts. Those few splashes of gas left down the stretch were just enough for a checkered flag — and a sign Keselowski is a championship favorite. With other contenders battling fuel woes and limping toward pit road, Keselowski had enough gas in the No. 2 Dodge to win Sunday at Dover International Speedway for his second win in three weeks. Keselowksi’s stout start to the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship allowed him to swipe the points lead from Jimmie Johnson. Keselowski holds a 5-point lead over Johnson as the Chase shifts to Talladega Superspeedway. Keselowski, who won the Chase opener at Chicagoland, has deftly avoided the famed Big Ones that strike the Alabama track to win twice there in seven career starts. He held off a late push from runner-up Jeff Gordon to match Denny Hamlin for the season victory lead with five. “I can’t state loudly enough how much longer this battle is,” Keselowski said. Keselowski, Johnson and Hamlin have staked their claim through the first three of 10 Chase races as the drivers to beat. Johnson and Hamlin each led a chunk of laps on the mile concrete oval but failed to stretch their fuel to the end. Johnson, who has seven career wins at Dover, was ordered to back off the gas and salvaged a fourth-place finish. Hamlin pitted with 10 laps left, opening the door for Keselowski, and denying him his first win at the Monster Mile. Hamlin faded to eighth after starting from the pole. “They’re not going to beat us on the track, that’s just plain and simple,” Hamlin said. “We’re just too fast right now and I feel like everything is going well. These strategy games — and the way these cautions are falling — it’s illtimed.” There was a caution at the end of a cycle of green-flag pit stops only 69 laps into the race that quickly dropped drivers a lap back. Amazingly, most of the field couldn’t ever get that lap back; only six drivers finished on the lead lap. Non-Chase drivers Mark Martin finished third and Carl Edwards was fifth. Kyle Busch led a race-high 302 laps until his own battles with the pump cost him what would have been a nice victory in a season where he failed to make the Chase. He finished seventh. There were some rough finishes for the rest of the Chase field. Martin Truex Jr. was sixth, Clint Bowyer was ninth,
by allowing Torii Hunter’s 2-run double with two outs in the ninth, Joe Nathan worked the ninth in the nightcap for his 37th save. Derek Holland (12-6) got the win. Los Angeles took a quick 4-0 lead in the nightcap that Ervin Santana (9-13) quickly squandered. In the opener, Garrett Richards (4-3) retired Nelson Cruz with two runners on in the eighth and Ernesto Frieri pitched a perfect ninth for his 24th save. Mike Trout became the first major-league rookie to reach 30 homers and 40 stolen bases in the same season. ATHLETICS 5, MARINERS 2 OAKLAND, Calif. — Yoenis Cespedes broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth with a home run off Shawn Kelley (2-4) as Oakland closed on its first playoff berth in six years. Josh Reddick connected with a 2-run shot for his team-leading 32nd homer two batters later. Sean Doolittle (2-1) pitched a perfect eighth for the win and Grant Balfour finished for his 22nd save. TIGERS 2, TWINS 1 MINNEAPOLIS — Prince Fielder hit a 2-run, opposite-field homer to left off Jared Burton (3-2), his 30th of the season, and Detroit opened a season-high, 3-game lead over the second-place Chicago White Sox in the AL Central.

(Continued from Page 6) AL BALTIMORE — The Baltimore Orioles clinched their first playoff berth since 1997, extending their winning streak to four by beating the Boston Red Sox 6-3 Sunday as Nate McLouth, J.J. Hardy and Chris Davis hit solo homers. Joe Saunders (3-3) allowed three runs, eight hits and no walks in 7 1/3 innings; Jim Johnson worked the ninth for his 50th save. Zach Stewart (0-2) gave up five runs and seven hits in 2 2/3 innings. YANKEES 9, BLUE JAYS 6 TORONTO — Eduardo Nunez drove in the go-ahead run with an eighth-inning sacrifice fly and the Yankees overcame a 5-1 deficit for their 17th playoff berth in 18 years. Toronto took a 5-1 lead in the fifth against Phil Hughes but the Yankees closed in the sixth on a run-scoring pitch by Henderson Alvarez and tied it an inning later on Ichiro Suzuki’s sacrifice fly, Robinson Cano’s RBI double against Steve Delabar and Aaron Loup’s run-scoring wild pitch. ANGELS 5, RANGERS 4; RANGERS 8, ANGELS 7 ARLINGTON, Texas — Mike Napoli homered twice and drove in six runs as Texas clinched its third straight playoff berth. Napoli’s second homer in the nightcap was a go-ahead 3-run shot in the third. After blowing a save in the opener
Dale Earnhardt Jr. 11th, Kevin Harvick 13th, Kasey Kahne 15th, Greg Biffle 16th, Tony Stewart 20th and Matt Kenseth was knocked out of the race and was 35th. There are seven races left in the Chase. While crew chief Paul Wolfe didn’t want to reveal too much of his fuel-saving strategy, he conceded the car was “within a lap or two” or running on fumes. Keselowski raced the last 89 laps without a stop. Johnson had his record eighth win at Dover in sight until he was forced to start saving fuel with about 15 laps left. Crew chief Chad Knaus told Johnson to yield the lead so the No. 48 could at least salvage a top-5. “I wish we could have raced for it,” said Johnson, a 5-time Cup champion. “We finally got control of the race late but it just didn’t unfold like a normal race here.” Hamlin won the pole and seemed in position to pull off a breakthrough win until fuel issues forced him down pit road behind Busch, his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate. That left it to Gordon and Keselowski with 10 laps left to duel for the lead over the closing laps. Gordon followed his third place last week at New Hampshire with another strong run at Dover. He needed it after a 35th-place finish in the opener at Chicagoland. Gordon is 10th in points.

‘Hotel Transylvania’ checks in with $43M debut
By DAVID GERMAIN The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Adam Sandler’s monster mash-up “Hotel Transylvania” has brought the weekend box office back to life after a late-summer slump. The animated comedy from Sony Pictures debuted at No. 1 with $43 million, one of the strongest starts ever for a movie opening in September, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Hotel Transylvania” set a new high for September debuts in terms of actual dollars, beating the previous record of $35.7 million for 2002’s “Sweet Home Alabama.” But factoring in today’s higher admission prices, “Sweet Home Alabama” sold more tickets. This weekend’s box office was further strengthened by a solid No. 2 debut for another Sony release, Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s time-travel thriller “Looper,” which took in $21.2 million. Hollywood’s overall grosses rose for the first time in a month compared to the same weekend last year. Revenues totaled $120 million, up 21 percent from the same weekend a year ago, when “Dolphin Tale” led with $13.9 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. “Sony really kind of saved the day here, turning things around after a full month of less-than-stellar box office,” said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “The post-summer period didn’t exactly set the world on fire.” It’s rare for one studio to open two wide releases over the same weekend, but Sony had two movies that complemented each other well without overlapping their audiences.

Thousands attend NYC concert highlighting poverty
By LOU FERRARA The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Neil Young, the Black Keys, Foo Fighters and others wowed thousands who turned out Saturday night for a free concert in Central Park to call attention to poverty worldwide. Dubbed the Global Citizen Festival, the concert also featured K’naan, John Legend and Band of Horses, with Young’s performance capping off the evening. Video of the event was streamed worldwide as about 60,000 music fans crowded the park’s Great Lawn, the midtown Manhattan skyline twinkling behind them. Legend made a surprise appearance, playing one song “Imagine” at a piano on stage, a short walk from where the song’s author, John Lennon, once lived. The five-hour show was a mix of tight sets from the bands, roughly an hour each, mixed with videos and information from guest speakers about global povertyrelated problems like infant mortality and polio. “Feels good to be here,” Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl told the crowd during a break between hits like “Learn to Fly,” “Best of You” and “My Hero.” Grohl, members of the Black Keys and others joined Young on stage for the finale, his anthem “Rockin’ in the Free World.” The concert was scheduled around the meeting of the United Nations General Assembly in New York this month and organizers used an innovative approach to ticket distribution so that many concert-goers were forced to learn about an array of global problems in order to get a ticket. Anyone wanting free tickets had to register at globalcitizen.org, which then required users to watch videos or read information about poverty-related issues. Each time material was consumed, users
could earn points toward a drawing for tickets. Points were also accumulated by sharing information by way of Twitter or Facebook. “Our social media campaign has been off the charts,” said Hugh Evans, CEO and co-founder of the Global Poverty Project. The approach demonstrates a new model for harnessing digital tools that might be repeated for other big events with political or social messages. Organizers said more than 71,000 people had signed up online, resulting in more than 3.5 million page views. On average, they spent just over six minutes consuming content or sharing information. Nearly 200,000 pieces of information were shared on Facebook, and just a bit more than that on Twitter. About 170,000 people signed petitions via the site, and there were 98,000 videos viewed to completion.

crowds, the PG-rated “Hotel Transylvania” features Sandler providing the voice of Count Dracula as proprietor of a resort catering to Frankenstein, the Wolfman and other monsters. The R-rated “Looper” pulled in male action fans. Set in 2044, the film stars Gordon-Levitt as a hit man assigned to kill victims sent back in time — including his future self (Bruce Willis). The previous weekend’s No. 1 movie, Open Road Films’ police story “End of Watch,” fell to No. 3 with $8 million, raising its domestic total to $26.2 million. In narrower release, Universal Pictures’ music tale “Pitch Perfect” opened strongly at No. 6 with $5.2 million. The movie stars Anna Kendrick as a college freshman who joins an a cappella singing team and livens up the group’s conservative style. Playing in 335 theaters, “Pitch Perfect” averaged an impressive $15,560 a cinema. That compared to an average of $12,840 in 3,349 theaters for “Hotel Transylvania” and $7,086 in 2,992 cinemas for “Looper.” The weekend’s other new wide release, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis’ school drama “Won’t Back Down,” flopped at No. 10 with $2.7 million, averaging just $1,074 in 2,515 theaters. The movie centers on two mothers who organize a campaign to save a failing elementary school. For Sandler, “Hotel “Transylvania” was a return to hit status after his summer dud “That’s My Boy” and so-so results on last year’s comedy “Jack and Jill.” Sandler’s audience of young males generally has waned as he ages. But Sony, which has released most of his movies, remains eager to stay in the Sandler business. “I have said that many times, and it still holds in a big way,” said Rory Bruer, head of distribution for Sony. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood. com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released today.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2012 With three important new friends coming into your life, the year ahead should be a far more active one for you socially. There is also a strong possibility you might do a bit more traveling than in the past. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don’t worry if things have been a bit dull lately on the social front. A series of exciting developments are in the making and you’ll get wind of them soon. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Circumstances are starting to intervene on your behalf, turning several iffy situations into something quite lucrative. They could all occur simultaneously. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- An exciting new project that has a lot of promising potential is likely to capture your fancy at this time. It’ll be the kind of endeavor that will be a pleasure to undertake. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Try to devote as much time and effort as possible to some of your more ambitious objectives. Your chances of realizing fulfillment look to be exceptionally good. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Engaging in mundane routine is likely to bore you to distraction. However, developments that challenge your ingenuity will bring out your championship qualities. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Something advantageous of a business nature is developing for you at this time. You might learn about part of it today, but there will be much more manifesting tomorrow. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t attempt anything on your own that can be better accomplished with a competent ally. You’ll be far more fortunate doing things with a partner than by yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Something wonderful could happen for you where your work or career is concerned. However, you’ll need to be on your toes, because what develops will require an instant response. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You’ll be on the minds of several friends who are making some out-of-the-ordinary plans of a social nature. Lucky you, because you’ll be penciled into their arrangements. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Influences that have a direct effect on your basic requirements and material security are both unique and favorable at present. You’re likely to profit from a strange set of circumstances. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your inclination to attempt to please everybody will end up working to your ultimate benefit. Friends and colleagues whose lives you brighten will, in turn, try to brighten yours. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -There are all kinds of indications that you are likely to be luckier than usual in arrangements that have profitable potential. What you gain will not be of a temporary nature. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2012 It looks like you’re about to make some critical changes in your life that will spill over and have a positive effect on your financial affairs. In doing so, there’s a chance you’ll be able to fulfill a longstanding desire. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Do your very best not to disrupt anything that is presently running smoothly, because you could be all thumbs and make matters worse. Let your motto be: “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You’re asking for all kinds of trouble if you deliberately play up to someone in order to make another person whom you don’t like jealous. Don’t play games. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -Only if you are tenacious and consistent will success be within your reach. However, the odds are against you if you try to gamble your way to greener pastures. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Friends and associates aren’t likely to have any respect for your ideas or opinions if they sense that you have little regard for theirs. Be sure to keep an open mind and avoid premature judgment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Don’t allow anybody who’s notorious for being unable to manage his or her resources to handle your own. This error in judgment could turn out to be very expensive. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Things you envision can be brought into being, if you work at it. However, this does not mean you could succeed teaming up with another. Go it alone. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You won’t mind going out of your way to assist a friend. However, it will really irk you if the recipient has a total lack of acknowledgement and appreciation. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If your old standbys aren’t available to do something fun with you, it might be best to go it alone. Involvements with substitutes aren’t likely to work out too well. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Once you successfully have achieved something, let it go and move on to something new. If you keep trying to improve it, you could unravel your own accomplishment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your keen imagination can be a very big plus, provided you remain positive and channel it constructively. Once you start to think negatively, it will be a different story. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Avoid any speculative involvements, especially those that require you have to dip into your savings in order to participate. Chances are what starts out wrong will end up wrong. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- This might not be one of your better days for decision-making, but what could make it even worse is that the persons to whom you go for counsel could be even more inept than you.
