Too wet to farm
BY STEPHANIE GROVES
Staff Writer
sgroves@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — Since the
beginning of July, Van Wert,
Allen and Putnam counties
have seen much higher than
average rainfall totals which
has made it nearly impos-
sible for farmers to harvest
their winter wheat.
Van Wert County OSU-
Extension Educator Dr.
Curtis Young reports the
winter wheat is ready to
be harvested and the big-
gest concern for the farmers
is getting into the fields.
Running huge equipment
into the saturated fields will
be a challenge.
“Farmers risk damaging
the soils by creating ruts and
compacting soils,” Young
explained. “Also, because
the seed heads are so ripe,
the grains are falling out —
ground shatter — a condi-
tion that will decrease the
farmers’ yields.”
In addition, Young said
farmers will have to navi-
gate their combines through
fields and not smack the
kernels out with the reel on
the machinery.
Young said the weather
forecast for the next few
days into the weekend looks
to be drier than in the recent
past. He anticipates a lot
of action (harvesting) this
weekend.
“Yields have the potential
to be very respectable since
the grain matured naturally
and filled in properly this
year,” he said. “Test weights
are holding good as long as
there is no cycling of wet/
dry weather.”
Another concern for
wheat crop is a fungus
called Head Scab (vomi-
toxin), produced by fungi
(molds) growing on grain or
grain products.
“Vomitoxin is a stable
toxin that has ill effects on
livestock — predominantly
swine — if it is present in
feeds,” Young said.
Allen County Farm
Service Agency Executive
Director David P. Nusbaum
reports that there is little
wheat off in his county since
farmers cannot get into their
fields.
“There are concerns for
the fungus vomitoxin since
it lowers the quality of the
grade and in turn, decreases
the crop values quite a bit,”
Nusbaum stated.
Nusbaum said another
important consideration
is crop insurance for such
instances.
“Farmers should contact
their local crop insurance
agent,” he said. “They will
need a record from the grain
elevator to make a claim
should they take a loss.”
Putnam County OSU
Extension Educator James
Hoorman said the county
has seen a scattered mix of
rainfall totals occurring over
10 of the last 16 days.
“Miller City did not
get much rain and Findlay
received up to 4 1/2 inches,”
Hoorman reported.

High winds in excess
of 50 mph and rain
moved through Delphos
Wednesday afternoon,
blowing down a huge
Maple tree on Sixth Street
which fell on top of power
lines running between
Franklin and Washington
streets. Tension on the
wires snapped two
power poles in half (one
of poles at right) and the
tree landed on top of a
vehicle (above). Delphos

arrived on the scene to
block and direct traffic
away from the hazardous
area. (Delphos Herald/

Storm brings up leak at library;
new teen area approved
BY STACY TAFF
Staff Writer
staff@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — The board of trustees
of the Delphos Public Library met for its
monthly meeting Wednesday afternoon.
The strong storms that rolled through
the area allowed Director Kelly Rist to
address the re-emergence of the leak in the
foundation of the main building.
“You’ll remember we repaired part of
the foundation a while back. It’s held up
until now but on the bright side we know
where it’s coming from,” she said. “The
leak is in the southwest corner of the
boiler room; I was able to see it. It will be
taken care of but I’m not sure how much
it will cost.
“I’m also planning to put in for a grant
for a back-up generator, which we’ve
talked about previously.”
Rist announced the continuing suc-
cess of the Summer Reading Program, of
which two weeks remain. Also, plans are
being made for a teen group section in the
library for young adult readers.
“I’ve been told we have a bigger group
of teen readers at the library than ever
before,” Rist said. “We’ve sat down with
some of them and asked them what they
would like to see and we’ve decided it
would be a good idea to have an area
closed off and have a staff member there
who is geared towards teens. They’re
very excited about having an area of their
own.”
Rist shared some statistics with the
board on the Delphos library’s standing
out of 251 libraries around Ohio as far as
cost per circulation and operating revenue.
With cost per circulation at $1.96, the
Delphos library is 17th in the state, with
Dr. Earl S. Sloan Library coming in last
with $33.84. Total operating revenue is at
$430,861, which puts the Delphos library
at 177th out of 251.
“I think it really says a lot when you
rank 17th for cost per circulation and
177th for total revenue,” Rist said.
In other news, plans have been made
for the library’s Canal Days tent, which
will be open between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
on Saturday in front of the post office.
“This year’s theme is magic. We’ll be
doing the learning portion so we’ll have
some experiments set up and we’ll tie
those into books,” Rist said.
The next meeting will begin at 4 p.m.
Aug. 14 in The First Edition Building.

Dear EarthTalk: Is there a link
between the recent spread of mosquito-
borne diseases around the world and
environmental pollution?
— Meg Ross, Lantana, FL
If by pollution you mean greenhouse
gas emissions, then definitely yes.
According to Maria Diuk-Wasser at the
Yale School of Public Health, the onset
of human-induced global warming is
likely to increase the infection rates of
mosquito-borne diseases like malaria,
dengue fever and West Nile virus by cre-
ating more mosquito-friendly habitats.
“The direct effects of temperature
increase are an increase in immature
mosquito development, virus develop-
ment and mosquito biting rates, which
increase contact rates (biting) with
humans,” she reports.

To wit, the U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) reported
a record number of West Nile virus
infections in the continental U.S. in
2012 with some 5,674 documented cases
including 286 deaths. The virus uses
insects as hosts where they reproduce
and then are transmitted to humans via
mosquito bites; it can also be transmitted
via blood transfusions, organ transplants
and breast feeding.
While it’s still far less common, U.S.
cases of mosquito-borne dengue fever—
also known as “breakbone fever” for the
feeling it gives its victims—rose by 70
percent in 2012 as compared with 2011.
The CDC reports 357 cases of dengue
fever in the continental U.S. in 2012,
up from 251 in 2011. The majority, 104,
was in Florida, but New York had 64
and California 35. Most of the infections
were imported on people travelling to
the U.S.—Puerto Rico played host to
4,450 dengue fever cases in 2012, up
from only 1,507 in 2011. But some of
the cases in Florida likely came from
mosquito bites there. The virus behind
dengue fever thrives in tropical and sub-
tropical environments. The increased
warming predicted for the southern U.S.
along with increased flooding means
dengue fever will no doubt be spread-
ing north on the backs of mosquitoes
into U.S. states that never thought they
would have to deal with such exotic
outbreaks.
West Nile and dengue fever aren’t
the only mosquito-borne diseases on
U.S. public health officials’ radar.
Chikungunya, which hitches a ride on
the ever expanding Asian tiger mosquito
and can cause high fever, fatigue, head-
ache, nausea, muscle and joint pain, and
a nasty rash in humans, comes from
tropical Africa and Asia. But cases have
started appearing in Western Europe
in recent years and are expected to
make it to the U.S. East Coast at any-
time. Likewise, Rift Valley fever, which
brings with it fever, muscle pain, dizzi-
ness, vision loss and even encephalitis,
was limited to Kenya only a decade ago
but today has spread across the entire
African continent and is expected to
make an appearance in Europe and the
U.S. soon.
While researchers are hard at work
to find vaccines against these dis-
eases, concerned Americans can take
some basic precautions to minimize
their chances of getting mosquito
bites. Keep screens on all the win-
dows and doors in the house that can
open. Outside, wear long pants and
long-sleeved shirts when possible and
cover up with an insect repellent—the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) says only those formulations
containing the chemical DEET have
been proven effective but there are
plenty of all natural alternatives out
there. In the meantime, our best defense
against these diseases may be keeping
our carbon footprints down, as the less
global warming we cause, the less we’ll
have to deal with an onslaught of tropi-
cal mosquito-borne diseases.

Farmers struggling with wheat harvest
BY JAMES J. HOORMAN
Ag Educator
OSU-Extension
Putnam County
With rain occurring in 10 of
the last 16 days, wheat harvest
is progressing slowly this year.
With nearly perfect conditions for
wheat growing (cool temperatures,
plenty of moisture, low disease),
wheat yields and wheat quality
were expected to be outstanding.
However, wheat is being lost in
the field and the quality is quickly
declining. With high humidity and
continued rain, the wheat is starting
to sprout or even drop out of the
heads, causing both a decrease in
quality and in yield.
Last year, due to the drought and
high temperatures, most wheat was
harvested by July 1. This year, the
good growing conditions had farm-
ers hoping for 85 to 100 bushel
wheat, but now the rain is making it
difficult to harvest. Most wheat was
planted late last year, so the wheat
stalks are shorter than normal which
will also reduce straw production.
Wheat straw is in short supply, so
farmers may be able to get higher
prices for straw if they can get both
the wheat for grain and the straw
harvested on time.
Ed Lentz, Hancock Extension
Educator, advises farmers to try
to get the wheat harvest as soon
as possible and before Monday.
Generally, grain elevators do not
accept sprouted wheat due to qual-
ity and storage issues. If you have
livestock, sprouted wheat may be
fed but it heats up fast and spoils
quickly.
Rutgers University says: “Where
large amounts of rain fall, getting
combines into the field may be dif-
ficult. Where fields are passable,
grain may be mature but high in
moisture. It is important to get
wheat out of the field quickly after
the kernels have matured to avoid
loss of yield, reduced quality and
ultimately sprouting in the heads.
Combines operate most efficiently
and with less kernel damage when
grain moisture is between 13-20
percent. If wheat is harvested much
above 14 percent it needs to be
dried relatively quickly to prevent
sprouting in storage. Wheat is hard-
er to dry than corn because of the
high humidity this time of the year
and because it packs tighter than
corn thus grain depths in the bin
need to shallower or fan speeds/
volumes greater.”
Purdue University says: “Farmers
who plan to harvest or already have
binned wet wheat need to pay close
attention to some specific handling
and drying skills to prevent spoil-
age and loss of quality. Unheated
air drying in a bin equipped with
a drying fan and fully perforated
floor is limited to grain moistures
of 16-18 percent. A maximum of no
more than 20 percent may be dried
without adding heat, if stirrers are
available.
The fan should be turned on as
soon as the bin floor is covered and
it should be run CONTINUOUSLY
day and night, rain or shine, until
the grain moisture in the upper lay-
ers is below 15 percent. The high-
er the temperature and the lower
the relative humidity, the drier the
wheat will become. Soft wheat
will reach lower moistures given
the same air conditions than hard
wheat. Once the moisture content
drops below 15 percent, the ambi-
ent air loses its drying potential
and the fan should operate only
during the “good” part of the week.
To reach the desirable moisture
content of 13 to 14 percent, fan
operation between 8 a.m. and 10
p.m. usually succeeds in most parts
of Ohio and Indiana.
Heat is required for wheat mois-
tures above 20 percent. Drying
should be accomplished fairly rap-
idly to reduce the risk of mold
development and subsequent spoil-
age. To be safe, a two to three foot
deep batch in a bin should be dried
with two to five cfm/bu to 14 per-
cent in 24 hours. No more than three
to 20 degrees Fahrenheit should be
added as a heat source.
In a bin drying system, the dif-
ference between moving air through
corn versus wheat is significant. For
the same airflow per bushel, wheat
can be filled only 60 percent as
deep as corn. Thus, 10 feet of wheat
is equivalent to 16 feet of corn in
terms of resistance to airflow. As
a rule of thumb, a bin filled with
10 feet of wheat will require one
horsepower of fan capacity per 1000
bushels of grain to deliver one cubic
foot of air for every bushel of wheat.
Thus, a 30-foot diameter bin filled
to 10 foot with 5,600 bu of wheat
would require a 5.5-HP fan.” For
more information, see Purdue’s fact
sheet on Drying Wheat to Prevent
Spoilage and Sprouting.

Pig virus migrates to US,
threatens pork prices
Associated Press
DENVER — Pork prices may be on
the rise in the next few months because
of a new virus that has migrated to the
U.S, killing piglets in 15 states at an
alarming rate in facilities where it has
been reported.
Dr. Nick Striegel, assistant state vet-
erinarian for the Colorado Department of
Agriculture, said Wednesday the Porcine
Epidemic Diarrhea Virus, also known as
PED, was thought to exist only in Europe
and China, but Colorado and 14 other
states began reporting the virus in April,
and officials confirmed its presence in
May. The virus causes severe diarrhea,
vomiting and severe dehydration in pigs,
and can be fatal.
“It has been devastating for those produc-
ers where it has been diagnosed. It affects
nursing pigs, and in some places, there has
been 100 percent mortality,” he said.
Striegel said the disease is not harm-
ful to humans, and there is no evidence it
affects pork products.
He said outbreaks are not required to
be reported to federal officials, so the
extent of the spread is difficult to deter-
mine, but in Colorado at least two large
production facilities have seen outbreaks.
The virus has been confirmed in
about 200 hog facilities in 14 other
states including Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois,
Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota,
Missouri, North Carolina, New York,
Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and
South Dakota, according to the American
Association of Swine Veterinarians.
Dr. Lisa Becton, director of swine
health information and research for the
National Pork Board, an industry trade
group, said the impact on the availability
of pork and meat prices is difficult to
estimate.
“At this point, I really don’t have any
indications what that potential impact
would be. Obviously, we know for indi-
vidual farms the impact is severe, espe-
cially if it’s a sow farm that has baby
pigs, because baby pigs do suffer the
most from the disease,” she said.
According to the Iowa Pork Industry
Center, an industry advocate, the abil-
ity to test for the disease is limited. It
is believed to be transmitted by infected
food or feces, and can be contained by
quarantining infected animals and wash-
ing down trucks and production facili-
ties.
Becton said the disease can spread
quickly and has killed entire populations
of pigs under 7 days old.
“As they get older, by the time they’re
weaned at around three weeks of age,
death loss can be around 80 percent or
in severe cases upwards of 100 per-
cent. Typically, after weaning mortality
declines dramatically,” she said.
She said veterinarians are still not sure
how the disease got to the U.S.
Phil Lukens, co-owner of Lukens
Farms located about 100 miles north of
Denver where about 20 pigs a year are
raised for market, said he has not been
warned about the new disease, but he
said most farmers already take stringent
precautions to protect their pigs.
“There are so many viruses, you
always assume the worst. We keep our
place clean, and we quarantine new ani-
mals for 30 days,” Lukens said.

Wet
(Continued from page 1)
He said earlier in the
season the nearly per-
fect conditions for wheat
growing (cool tempera-
tures, plenty of moisture,
low disease), wheat yields
and wheat quality were
expected to be outstand-
ing (85 to 100 bushel).
However, wheat is being
lost in the field and the
quality is quickly declin-
ing. With high humidity
and continued rain, wheat
is starting to sprout or
even drop out of the heads,
causing both a decrease in
quality and in yield.
“We had potential for
good yields but now,
wheat crops are sopping
wet,” Hoorman stated.
“Most grain moisture may
be running 20-30 percent
and will require heat to
dry out.”
Hoorman said that com-
bines operate most effi-
ciently and with less ker-
nel damage when grain
moisture is between 13-20
percent. If wheat is har-
vested much above 14 per-
cent, it needs to be dried
relatively quickly to pre-
vent sprouting, molding
and subsequent spoilage
while in storage.
“Even if they [the farm-
ers] get it off, they will
have to dry it down,”
Hoorman detailed. “Wheat
packs in a bin much denser
than corn or beans and the
high humidity also adds
time to the process.”
The last few growing
seasons have taken quite
a toll on farmers and their
wheat crops.
“Low wheat prices
will force more and more
farmers to grow corn and
beans,” Hoorman said.
A representative for
United Equity, Inc., in
Delphos reported they
have not received any
winter wheat yet. They
said if any farmers have
had the opportunity to
harvest wheat, right now
they have it in their bin
drying out.

Moening to give overview
of Lima Crane and
Shovel at AC Museum
Information submitted
When people think of the
Lima Locomotive Works,
they think of steam loco-
motives. Less recognized
but no less important was
the production of construc-
tion equipment that was
used to build this country
throughout the 20th century.
Between 1924-81, thousands
of shovels, cranes, road pack-
ers, pavers and other equip-
ment were locally produced
by the Lima Locomotive
Works, Lima-Hamilton,
Baldwin Lima Hamilton and
Clark Equipment. Unlike the
steam-powered locomotives,
this equipment was fueled
by gasoline, diesel and elec-
tric, making it more adapt-
able to time, technology and
circumstances. More than 70
different models of shovels
and cranes bore the familiar
“Lima” trademark. How was
it that a locomotive company
got started producing shovels
and cranes?
The Allen County
Historical Society will host
Bernie Moening, who will
present a historical overview
of the Lima Shovel and Crane
Division.
Most people will recog-
nize Moening as a familiar
face behind the counter at
the Lima Post Office. Few
may realize his phenomenal
expertise on locally-made
shovels, cranes and heavy
equipment. His father, grand-
father, great-uncle and broth-
er all worked for the Loco
Works. His grandfather was a
foreman at the brass foundry
and his father was a sheet
metal worker producing cabs
for shovels and cranes. As a
boy, he would go to the fac-
tory and watch the men test
Lima cranes in the testing
field.
“I would hear my father
talk about some of the
machines they built but didn’t
take a serious interest until
my father passed away in
1983,” he said.
Moening is a 1969 grad-
uate of Lima Senior High
School and life member of
the Cridersville Historical
Society. He retired from the
Lima Post Office in 2006,
where he worked for more
than 36 years. Moening pro-
vides historical consulting
on Lima-made shovels and
cranes.
This program is free and
open to the public.
The Allen County
Museum is located at 620 W.
Market St., Lima.

Leake leads Reds to 6-2 win over Brewers
BY JOE DiGIOVANNI
Associated Press
MILWAUKEE — With the
Cincinnati Reds reeling, Mike Leake
knew he had to pitch a strong game.
After a shaky start, the right-hander
delivered for his team.
Leake scattered four hits over 8 1/3
innings and Brandon Phillips had three
runs batted in, lifting the Reds to a 6-2
win over the Milwaukee Brewers on
Wednesday.
Cincinnati put the leadoff runner on
base in each of the first seven innings.
The Reds snapped a 3-game losing
streak that had dropped them five games
behind St. Louis in the NL Central.
“It would have been a graveyard
in here if we didn’t pull this one out,”
Leake said.
Leake (8-4) bounced back from a
rare rough start in his last outing and
seemed to get stronger as the game pro-
gressed. He allowed four walks while
striking out two.
“It wasn’t the best game I’ve
pitched,” he said. “They made me work
and they were aggressive towards me.
That was one thing that worked to my
advantage. I made some pitches when I
needed to, to get out of jams. They put
some pressure on me.”
Milwaukee starter Johnny Hellweg
(0-3) had trouble throwing strikes,
was battered for his fourth consecutive
appearance and sent back to the minor
leagues after the game. The right-hand-
er, who made his major-league debut
on June 28, allowed four runs on four
hits and five walks in 4 1/3 innings in
his third start.
“I think there’s improvement there
from the other two starts but still some
things he needs to work on,” Milwaukee
manager Ron Roenicke said.
Leake allowed four runs in just five
innings during his last start July 5 in a
7-4 loss to Seattle and gave up a first-
inning run to Milwaukee.
“I didn’t think he was going to make
it because they were hitting the ball
hard off him,” Reds manager Dusty
Manager said.
He then settled down, giving up
Sean Halton’s first major-league home
run and a walk to Jeff Bianchi in the
fifth.
Leake then retired the next 13 bat-
ters.
“I just kind of attacked them and
mixed it up a little bit more,” he added.
Jonathan Lucroy reached on a
1-out single in the ninth against Leake
and Baker turned to closer Aroldis
Chapman to finish the game in a non-
save situation.
Shin-Soo Choo had two singles, a
double and a walk. Phillips had two hits
and drove in runs in the first, third and
seventh innings.
Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a walk,
driving in a run in the fifth and seventh
innings.
The Reds could have scored more
runs but were 3-for-14 with runners in
scoring position.
“We have to cash in on a couple of
those opportunities,” Baker added. “I
know it sounds greedy right now but
we want all the runs we can get. You try
not to keep them in the game.”
Acquired in the 2012 trade that
sent Zack Greinke to the Los Angeles
Angels, Hellweg has struggled in three
starts and one relief appearance. In 10
2/3 innings, he has given up 20 runs on
19 hits and 12 walks while striking out
three batters.
He was optioned to Class A
Wisconsin in the Midwest League after
the game to keep him pitching every
fifth day, Roenicke explained, adding
other Brewers affiliates have off days
that would have gotten Hellweg off
schedule.
The Reds made it 1-0 in the first
on Choo’s leadoff double and a 2-out
single by Phillips.
Milwaukee tied it in the bottom of
the inning on a sacrifice fly by Carlos
Gomez.
Cincinnati got a sacrifice fly from
Devin Mesoraco in the second and
added another run in the third when
Zack Cozart scored from third on
Phillips’ groundout. Cozart scored
again to make it 4-1 in the fifth on a
groundout by Bruce.
Halton’s made it 4-2 in the bottom
of the fifth.
Cincinnati scored twice in the sev-
enth off Hand to make it 6-2 on RBI
singles from Phillips and Bruce.
Notes: Brewers OFs Ryan Braun
(sore left thumb) and Norichika Aoki
(left elbow tightness) were out of the
lineup. They are expected to start
today at Arizona. … Reds LHP Sean
Marshall, on the DL with shoulder
soreness, threw a 42-pitch bullpen ses-
sion Tuesday and said he felt no sore-
ness on Wednesday. He added there is
no timetable to begin a minor-league
rehab assignment. … Reds OF Chris
Heisey was wearing a compression
sleeve on his left arm Wednesday after
being hit by a fastball from RHP Wily
Peralta on Tuesday night. He was out of
the Reds lineup.

MLB drug probe litigation
could be lengthy
BY RONALD BLUM
Associated Press
NEW YORK
— We may never
know exactly what
Alex Rodriguez
and Ryan Braun
are being accused
of in Major
League Baseball’s
Biogenesis investigation — if they beat the rap.
That’s because details likely will be caught in a tangle
of legal gymnastics involving MLB, the players’ union
and probably an arbitrator, who could rule no discipline
is warranted.
Lengthy proceedings make it nearly a certainty most, if
not all, suspensions would be served in 2014.
Among the early legal issues: Does the commis-
sioner’s office have the right to announce any suspensions
before grievances are decided by an arbitrator? Can a
player not previously disciplined under the drug agree-
ment be suspended for more than 50 games because of
multiple violations?
Three people familiar with the investigation said if
management and the union can’t agree on the process,
arbitrator Fredric Horowitz likely would be asked to
decide. The people spoke on condition of anonymity
because no public statements were authorized.
MLB has spent most of the year investigating about 20
players for their links to Biogenesis of America, including
A-Rod and Braun, both former MVPs. Miami New Times
reported in January that the closed Florida anti-aging
clinic had distributed banned performance-enhancing
drugs to major leaguers.
Lawyers for the commissioner’s office have been inter-
viewing players and many, including Braun, have refused
to answer questions about their dealings with Biogenesis,
the three people reported. Braun was interviewed in late
June; Rodriguez is scheduled to be interviewed Friday.
Braun and Rodriguez have claimed they didn’t do
anything that merits discipline.
The players’ refusal to respond to MLB’s questions
were first reported by ESPN and the New York Daily
News.

BY JIM METCALFE
Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
I’m not going to get into who should have been voted
into the Midsummer Classic — or not. When you depend
on the fans, they sometimes — sometimes? — allow emo-
tion to get the best of their judgement.
As that great American philosopher, Gomer Pyle, might
opine: Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!
That’s part of what makes the Midsummer Classic what
it is and as the French might observe: Vive La Difference!
After all, isn’t that what Major League Baseball —
and throw in the National Football League, the National
Basketball Association and the National Hockey League
— are really all about: the fans?
I get that professional sports are about making a profit
for the owners, the players, the networks, etc., but you
don‘t do that by alienating the fans. You get people to
come to games, to watch these “modern-day gladiators” on
the tube, to listen to these events on the radio, to go to your
websites and read about the comings and goings of your
team on and on, in order to make those dollars.
Those do not happen without us, folks!
Remember that, ALL you guys.
With the NBA Finals done for a month and NFL
training camps not quite open — now is the time for our
football heroes to get some vacation time — MLB has the
team sports spotlight all to its lonesome.
That can be a positive: with such good stories as the
Los Angeles Bums … er, Dodgers Yasiel Puig making a
late push to be included on the National League team;
the possibility that the Pittsburgh Pirates will finally —
finally! — have a winning record and make the playoffs
after a professional record-setting run of futility; with a
tremendous second-half chase shaping up in the American
League East — one or two of those teams will not make
the playoffs — amongst the regular headlines, those are
items MLB want there.
Unfortunately, it can also be negative to have the sports
world solo as far as team sports. The biggest issue right
now is the MLB investigation into performance-enhancing
drugs involving Biogenesis and how far-reaching it will
eventually become.
I don’t know to really think: one side of me hopes they
“nail the cheaters” — I think MLB ignored some obvious
signs and so did we all in the name of our sports and our
heroes — and the other part hopes they are innocent and
will be judged so because I WANT to give them the benefit
of the doubt.
I won’t go into the “third” part!
We shall see!
I am a Los Angeles Laker fan. I have been since
they acquired Kareem Abdul-Jabbar from the Milwaukee
Bucks in 1975 and remain so.
I will remain so as they go through this forced-rebuild-
ing process after the fiasco that was the Dwight Howard
saga.
Anyone that thinks they can simply pick up and carry
on like nothing has happened after Howard signed with
the Houston Rockets for basically nothing in return — or
a bunch of roster “occupiers” to keep salary-cap space for
the hoped-for free-agent Class of 2014 (good luck!)and
hope that you don’t embarrass the Laker brand — is, well,
not involved with reality.
Fans talk about what his replacement on the roster,
Chris Kaman, has averaged over his career and isn’t a bad
sub but that isn’t what he’s done lately.
You basically gave up a still-young center in Andrew
Bynum — now being considered by an up-and-coming
Cleveland Cavaliers — for a one-year crapshoot (for noth-
ing, in essence) and further compounded it by signing
a far-beyond-his-prime Steve Nash to run a high-tempo
offense with a slow, slower, slowest group and you gave
away your future to do so.
You keep a head coach over Howard to run an offense
that simply does not fit your personnel — maybe in two
years if you let Kobe go and actually get a bunch of young,
fast, athletic pups in there to actually run a fast break by
some kind of magic, drafting, trades.
You keep thinking Kobe can play millions of minutes
a year, keep going as if he hasn’t aged a day, isn’t coming
off a major, major injury and will be his old self — is he
going to take 50 shots a game to prove he “still has it”?
Ouch.
I have actually posted some of these thoughts on some
of the team’s forums; I don’t think I am alone.
I will be honest: one never really knows what pro
athletes will do when their — in this case — manhood is
challenged and they may surprise me.
I repeat: we shall see.
Fans getting their wish in Midsummer Classic

Couples looks to break through in US Senior Open
Associated Press
OMAHA, Neb. — Fred Couples
feels like he’s overdue for a win.
He’s played seven events on the
Champions Tour this year, has been in
the top five in six of them and comes
into the U.S. Senior Open today off
three straight runner-up finishes.
“I would like to win something,” he
said Wednesday, adding that he even
came in second in a member-guest
tournament in California last month.
Couples’ most recent victory was
just under a year ago at the 2012
Senior British Open. He looked ready
to win two weeks ago in the Senior
Players Championship but a back-
9 collapse left him tied for second
behind Kenny Perry.
Couples added his bothersome
back is feeling fine, so if the man
nicknamed “Boom Boom” for his pro-
digious drives can find the fairway at
Omaha Country Club, no one would
be surprised if this is the week he
breaks through.
“Fred still hits the ball a tremen-
dous distance,” Bernhard Langer said.
“He hasn’t lost any distance; maybe
gained some with the equipment and
all that. He’s capable of producing
very low scores. Wherever he tees
up, he’s one of the main favorites, no
doubt about it.”
Couples, Perry, Langer, Tom
Watson and David Frost are among
the top contenders at the 6,700-yard,
par-70 Omaha Country Club.
The fourth of the five senior majors
will be a test of stamina for the 50-and-
over golfers, especially with weekend
highs forecast in the low 90s with high
humidity. The course is hilly, featuring
elevation and topographical changes
that belie the popular image of the
central plains.
“Nebraska, you’d think flat and
hot,” Perry said. “I got the hot part
right but it’s the hilliest golf course
I’ve ever been on.”
Drives in the fairway will be at
a premium with the rough cut high
and the greens small and sloped. The
312-yard 13th hole is drivable but
the course features the second-longest
par-3 in U.S. Senior Open history in
the 230-yard third hole and the third-
longest par-4 in the 494-yard 10th.
The 53-year-old Couples’ scaled-
back schedule begins to ramp up now.
After the U.S. Senior Open, he plays
the British Open at Muirfield and
Senior British Open at Royal Birkdale
in consecutive weeks — “which might
be a little much,” he said.
For a man with a notoriously bad
back, the schedule is taxing, in no
small part because of the challenge the
Omaha Country Club presents. Even
in the best of circumstances, golfers
will find themselves with a good num-
ber of side-hill and downhill lies. And
then there’s that gnarly, 4-inch rough.
Roger Chapman will try to become
the first defending champion to repeat
since Allen Doyle in 2006. Chapman,
who also won the Senior PGA
Championship last year, has not been
able to recapture his 2012 magic. He
has one top-10 finish in 13 events.
Notable first-time entrants are
Colin Montgomerie, who turned 50
last month and tied for ninth in the
Senior Players Championship; Rocco
Mediate, who lost a playoff to Tiger
Woods in the classic 2008 U.S. Open
at Torrey Pines; and Duffy Waldorf,
who has six top-10s in 11 Champions
Tour events this year.
Perry, the Charles Schwab Cup
points leader, is looking for his second
win of the year in a senior major. He
shot three straight rounds in the 60s to
win the Senior Players Championship
by 2 shots over Couples and Waldorf
in Pittsburgh.
Playing on the regular tour last
week in West Virginia, Perry was three
shots off the lead after two rounds of
the Greenbrier Classic before balloon-
ing to 73 on Saturday and finishing
tied for 41st.
Watson shot in the 60s in three of
his four rounds at the Greenbrier but
tied for 38th after a 72 on Saturday.
The 2014 Ryder Cup captain has two
top-10 finishes in six Champions Tour
events.
“Hot and cold,” Watson said,
describing his game this year. “I strug-
gled yesterday and today in practice
rounds here. Then I got on the practice
tee and at the end of the session I start-
ed hitting the ball well again. Whether
it’s going to work on the golf course
tomorrow is anybody’s guess but at
least it’s on the upswing. If I can keep
the ball on the fairway and get there on
Sunday, that’s all I’m trying to get to.”
Langer, the Champions Tour
money leader, is trying to regain the
form that helped him win twice in
the spring. Langer, who won the U.S.
Senior Open in 2010 and tied for sec-
ond last year, limited his practice to
two 9-hole rounds because of the heat
and humidity. He added the rough is as
thick as “anywhere in the world” and
even if there’s no wind, a golfer could
be in contention shooting par.
Stricker the man to beat at John
Deere Classic
SILVIS, Ill. — Steve Stricker might
be the only golfer on the PGA Tour
who isn’t peeking ahead to Muirfield
and next week’s British Open.
Stricker’s single-minded focus on
TPC Deere Run, combined with his
recent dominance of the course, makes
him the man to beat at this weekend’s
John Deere Classic.
Stricker, 46, is playing a reduced
schedule this season — and he’s skip-
ping the Open Championship to cel-
ebrate his wedding anniversary with
his wife Nicki in Wisconsin.
But Stricker won the John Deere
Classic three times from 2009-11. He’s
not about to pass on a shot at a fourth
title just down the road in Illinois.
“I owe a lot to this place. It’s a spe-
cial place for me,” Stricker said.
Stricker and Zach Johnson, who
grew up about 100 miles across the
Mississippi River in nearby Cedar
Rapids, Iowa, are the unquestioned
headliners this week.
That’s largely because most of the
world’s top golfers are already concen-
trating in Scotland.
There’s no Tiger, Rory or Phil
in this field. In fact, the only golfer
ranked in the top 10 in the world that’ll
play Deere Run is Louis Oosthuizen
— and he’s 10th.
Just eight of the world’s top 50,
including Stricker, Johnson, Keegan
Bradley and Nick Watney, have com-
mitted to the tournament. But what the
field lacks in star power it should make
up for somewhat in depth, as nearly
half of the top 100 on FedEx Cup
points list will tee off today.
Johnson also serves as an executive
board member for the tournament.
Johnson broke Stricker’s 3-year win-
ning streak here in 2012 but enters his
hometown event in a bit of a slump. He
followed up a third-place finish at the
Crowne Plaza Invitational in late May
by shooting 13-over par at the Memorial
Tournament and missing the cut at the
U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club.
Johnson added that although his
putting remains “up and down” — a
worrisome sign because of how many
birdie chances Deere Run presents —
he’s feeling more and more confident
in his driver.
Johnson also notched top-5 finishes
at Deere Run in 2009 and 2011 before
beating Troy Matteson on the second
hole of a playoff last year.
Stricker’s reduced schedule also
appears to be doing wonders for his
game in 2013. He has four top-10s in
seven events — including a memo-
rable eighth at the U.S. Open.
Bradley will be making his Classic
debut and is seeking his first win of
the year. Watney will also be looking
for a breakthrough after missing three
straight cuts from mid-May to Merion.
Jonas Blixt initially announced he
intended to return to his native Sweden
after winning last week’s Greenbrier
Classic but remains scheduled to tee
off today with Watney and Oosthuizen.
Perhaps no one in the field will
have more fun this weekend than
Oosthuizen.
The South African is a self-
described “farm boy” with an affinity
for John Deere equipment. Oosthuizen
celebrated his 2010 British Open by
buying a John Deere tractor and even
brought family and friends to the Quad
Cities this week so they could tour the
company’s facilities.
Mickelson looking to finally con-
quer links golf
INVERNESS, Scotland — Just
when he thought he’d finally under-
stood the unique nature of links golf,
Phil Mickelson arrived at last year’s
British Open and missed the cut for the
first time at a major in five years.
“I don’t know what to say,”
Mickelson repeated as he prepared to
leave Lytham two days earlier than
expected.
Fresh off another disappointment
— a sixth second-place finish at the
U.S. Open last month — the American
is back for another go on a links course
as he plays the Scottish Open starting
today, a week before the British Open
at Muirfield.
Any self-belief must be in short
supply whenever he flies to Europe —
he hasn’t won here in 20 years, since a
victory in a second-tier Challenge Tour
event in Paris in which he narrowly
beat Steve Elkington.
But links golf is something that
continues to appeal to Mickelson. And
while Woods, McIlroy and the rest
of the world’s top seven have headed
to courses across Britain to prepare
for the British Open in non-compet-
itive conditions, the eighth-ranked
Mickelson will be at Castle Stuart this
week practicing his bump-and-runs
and low drives into the wind with a
title and prize money at stake.
Mickelson is a regular at the Scottish
Open and came closest to winning it in
2007 when he lost a playoff to Gregory
Havret. Mickelson is one of only four
Americans in the field.
He has reasons to be optimistic. He
says his driving and putting — what he
claims have been the “weaknesses” in
his game for the past five years — are
now his strong points.
His decision to put five putting
greens in his garden back home, all
with different surfaces, appears to be
paying off.
Mickelson has had a difficult past
month. Still coming to terms with the
“heartbreak” of losing out to Justin
Rose at the U.S. Open, he missed the
cut at the Greenbrier Classic last week
in his first outing since Merion.
Maybe a trip to Scotland, with his
wife and kids in tow, will do him some
good.
Mickelson plans to visit the local
battlefields from the middle of the 18th
century during his time in northern
Scotland.
Weather shortens Ohio Amateur
to 54-hole event
CANTON — The leader never
even showed up at the course.
Corey Richmond, who posted an
8-under 63 before the heavy stuff
came down in Tuesday’s first round,
maintained a 3-shot lead without hav-
ing to leave his hotel on Wednesday
while others battled the elements in the
107th Ohio Amateur.
With the threat of heavy rains,
rumbling thunder, crackling lightning
and dangerous weather peppering
Brookside Country Club, tournament
officials finally conceded to Mother
Nature and shortened the tournament
from 72 to 54 holes.
“It’s been the theme of the sum-
mer,” explained Jim Popa, executive
director of the sponsoring Ohio Golf
Association. “It seems like every-
where we go we’ve battled the weath-
er — and this week it’s gotten the best
of us.”
With thunderclouds the color of a
bad bruise hovering overhead, Popa
and the OGA suspended play early in
Wednesday’s second round. Half of
the field hadn’t even teed off and the
other half was on the course, many not
even halfway done.
Those players will return to soggy
Brookside Country Club this morning
at 8:30 to complete their rounds. The
second wave of 72 players — keep in
mind, half of the field has yet to even
tee off in the second round — will then
play starting at 11 a.m.
When everyone has finished the
second round, there will be a cut to the
low 60 scores and ties. The survivors
will return on Friday for the final 18
holes.
It will mark the first time since
1990 at The Sharon Golf Club that
the prestigious event hasn’t gone a full
four rounds.
Warm, humid and dry weather is
forecast for both today and Friday.
The 21-year-old Richmond, who
also had a hole in one in his glitter-
ing opening round, is being pursued
by 2010 winner Michael Bernard, an
Ohio State player from Huber Heights,
and Andrew Dorn, a junior at Coastal
Carolina from West Chester.
Chase Wilson, a former High
Point College player from Zanesville,
completed his first round early on
Wednesday and finished with a 67. He
had just gotten started with his next 18
when the weather hit.
Also at 67 was Tyler Light of
nearby Massillon, who tied for low
amateur in last week’s Ohio Open at
Westfield Country Club.
Bowling Green graduate Parker
Hewit of Westfield Center was at
69, with Dublin’s Nathan Clark and
Akron’s Dan Belden the only other
players with subpar rounds.
(Continued from page 6)
MLB hopes to complete the player
interviews in mid-July but is not sure
whether it will meet that schedule.
Management then will have to decide
what discipline it intends to impose.
Baseball’s joint drug agreement
calls for a 50-game suspension
for a first offense, 100 games for
a second and a lifetime ban for a
third. Among the players linked to
Biogenesis, Toronto’s Melky Cabrera,
Oakland’s Bartolo Colon and San
Diego’s Yasmani Grandal have served
50-game penalties following positive
testosterone tests.
The drug agreement specifies that
if a suspension for a first PED offense
is challenged by the union, the viola-
tion is not made public unless the
penalty is sustained in arbitration.
However, discipline for second and
third offenses are announced and
served while the grievance is liti-
gated.
There also is a provision stat-
ing “the commissioner’s office may
publicly announce the discipline of
a player if the allegations relating to
a player’s violation of the program
previously had been made public
through a source other than the com-
missioner’s office or a club” or their
employees. The sides or the arbitrator
will have to decide whether the media
accounts of Biogenesis are covered
by that clause.
Each player’s case probably will
be handled in a separate arbitration,
which could slow down the process
while the sides secure dates before
Horowitz or agree to retain other
arbitrators.
The three players who already have
served suspensions also may claim
they can’t be penalized under a provi-
sion prohibiting multiple disciplines
for the same use. In addition, they
can’t be penalized for conduct that
took place before they were given
notice of their positive drug test.
It may be difficult to discipline play-
ers for refusing to answer questions.
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn
suspended Ferguson Jenkins in
September 1980 after the Texas
pitcher was arrested in Toronto and
charged with possession of cocaine,
hashish and marijuana. Kuhn wrote
to Jenkins saying he imposed the
penalty because the pitcher “declined
to cooperate with this office’s inves-
tigation.”
Following a grievance hearing,
arbitrator Raymond Goetz lifted the
suspension two weeks later.
“As a practical matter, the com-
missioner was compelling Jenkins to
jeopardize his defense in court. While
this may not actually violate any prin-
ciples of constitutional or criminal
law, it offends the moral values of our
society on which the legal privilege
against self-incrimination is based,”
Goetz wrote.
He wrote players should not be
required to prove their innocence
because “this approach would stand
the requirement of just cause for dis-
cipline on its head.”
In the Biogenesis case, an arbi-
trator would have to rule whether
refusing to answer questions while no
criminal charges are pending may be
penalized under the “just cause” pro-
vision of the drug agreement.
Horowitz, a veteran of baseball
and NHL salary arbitration cases,
was appointed baseball’s arbitrator in
June last year. Shyam Das, who had
served since 1999, was fired in May
2012, three months after overturning
a 50-game suspension imposed on
Braun. Das ruled the urine sample of
the Milwaukee star was not handled
by the drug collector in the manner
specified by baseball’s drug agree-
ment.
MLB
Kawasaki’s big hit in 9th gives Toronto 5-4 win
Associated Press
CLEVELAND — Munenori Kawasaki hit a 2-run
single with the bases loaded in the ninth inning and the
Toronto Blue Jays beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4 Tuesday
night.
Kawasaki, who broke an 0-for-18 slump, lined a 1-2
pitch from Joe Smith into left-center field to score two
runs. A third run scored when centerfielder Michael Bourn
booted the ball for an error.
Colby Rasmus drew a 1-out walk off Rich Hill
(0-1). After Maicer Izturis flied out, J.P. Arencibia was
announced to bat for Josh Thole. Joe Smith relieved
Hill but Arencibia singled and Emilio Bonifacio walked
to load the bases. Kawasaki fell behind in the count but
came up with the clutch hit Toronto’s struggling offense
has needed.
Neil Wagner (2-3) struck out Ryan Raburn with the
bases loaded to end the eighth after the Indians tied the
game. Casey Janssen allowed two runs in the ninth before
Steve Delabar retired Michael Brantley on a fly ball for his
first major-league save.
Indians starter Justin Masterson took a 2-hit shutout
into the seventh but Bonifacio’s 2-run single put the Blue
Jays ahead.
The Indians tied the game in the eighth off All-Star
reliever Brett Cecil on Brantley’s RBI single.
Following Nick Swisher’s
walk, Brantley’s hard-hit ground
ball shot past shortstop Jose
Reyes and into center field, tying
the game. Carlos Santana lined
a single to left but Swisher was
forced to stop at third and the
bases were loaded.
When Raburn was announced
to hit for Jason Giambi, Toronto
manager John Gibbons called on
Wagner to replace Cecil. Raburn
struck out to end the inning.
Asdrubal Cabrera’s 2-out
single and Kawasaki’s throwing
error in the ninth cut the lead to 5-4 but Delabar recorded
the final out.
The Blue Jays, who had been blanked in two of their
last three games, struggled against Masterson. Toronto
finally broke through thanks to two hits and a pair of
walks.
Toronto starter Esmil Rogers allowed one run in six
innings.
Adam Lind doubled with one out in the seventh and
moved to third on a groundout. Izturis walked on four
pitches before Thole walked on a 3-2 pitch to load the
bases. Bonifacio, who struck out with a runner on third to
end the fifth, lined a 2-1 pitch into right field to score Lind
and Izturis, giving Toronto the lead.
The clutch hit came on Masterson’s 120th and final
pitch of the night. The right-hander, a member of the
American League All-Star team, allowed four hits, struck
out six and walked five.
The Blue Jays were shut out by four pitchers in
Monday’s 3-0 loss to Cleveland.
Giambi’s RBI single gave Cleveland the lead in the
second. Brantley and Santana walked to start the inning
before Giambi singled to center. The Indians had runners
on first and third but Rogers retired the next three hitters.
Cleveland traded Rogers, who was making his eighth
start of the season, to Toronto for infielder Mike Aviles and
catcher Yan Gomes in November. Rogers struck out seven
and held Cleveland to four hits.
Masterson didn’t allow a hit until Rasmus led off the
fifth with a double. Rasmus hit a 1-0 pitch over Brantley’s
head in left field and took third on a groundout. Izturis hit
a ground ball which second baseman Jason Kipnis fielded
on the edge of the grass. He threw to first for the out and
Rasmus held at third. Bonifacio struck out on a 3-2 pitch.
Masterson was coming off his shortest start of the sea-
son when he allowed six runs in 4 2/3 innings in a 7-0 loss
to Detroit on Friday. He threw a 6-hit shutout in his start
before against the Chicago White Sox.

Tomorrow’s
Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Maybe Dad wants to
be taken advantage of
Dear Annie: My parents
bought a house 15 years
ago. When Mom died seven
years later, Dad decided to
refnance and take Mom’s
name off the deed. The bank
needed a co-signer, so my
sister and I agreed to be the
co-borrowers. Dad is now
75. Four years ago, he mar-
ried a 47-year-old divorcee
with a 22-year-old daughter.
Since then, they have been
living on my dad’s Social
Security without making any
effort to get a job. Now he
wants to sell the
house and move to
Mexico to be clos-
er to her family. I
asked Dad to give
us what would
have been half of
Mom’s share to
be split among his
seven children.
He doesn’t want
to give us any-
thing. But without
my signature, he
can’t sell the prop-
erty. I’m concerned that this
woman is taking advantage
of my father. What should I
do? -- Not Fair
Dear Not Fair: Unless
your mother put in her will
that the property should go to
her children, please give it to
Dad without strings. He has
been living with this woman
for four years. There doesn’t
seem to be any physical or
emotional abuse, nor is she
trying to steal his money and
leave him. If she’s taking ad-
vantage of him, he doesn’t
object. We know you want
to protect Dad, but if he is of
sound mind, please let him
make these decisions on his
own -- for better or worse.
Dear Annie: I was sit-
ting in my car at the drug-
store when a couple came
out of the building, and the
man started taking pictures
of my car with his smart-
phone. I put my hand up
and asked him to stop pho-
tographing me. The woman
started yelling, saying I was
in a parking lot and she could
take pictures of whatever she
wants. Why does everyone
think that just because their
phones can snap pictures
they can take a photo of any-
one they want, whenever
they choose? -- Annoyed
Dear Annoyed: Because
they can. Unless they use the
photo for illegal purposes,
they can take pictures of
your car and anything else. If
you see the photo posted on-
line, you can ask that it be re-
moved, but there are no guar-
antees they will cooperate.
In fact, this particular couple
sounds excessively rude, ir-
ritating and a bit immature.
Unfortunately, there’s not
much you can do about it.
Dear Annie: We read
the letter from “Pa and Ma,”
who were hurt that the step-
children spent more time
with the in-laws. They asked
whether they should move
across the country to be clos-
er to their son. We have two
young children and love our
parents. However, years ago,
we moved far away for bet-
ter jobs. Both sets of grand-
parents are in their 60s and
retired. They are fairly unin-
volved in our lives and visit
perhaps once every
two or three years.
They never offer to
babysit and refuse
if we ask. Our vis-
its to see them are
costly and unpleas-
ant. We receive no
fnancial help from
them, nor do we
expect it. They’ve
also made it clear
that they don’t plan
to leave us any-
thing when they
die. It makes us sad that our
kids will never have a strong
bond with their grandpar-
ents. “Pa and Ma” sound like
they want to spend time with
the grandkids, want to help
out and want to be a big part
of their lives. If they lived
near us, we would “adopt”
them as our kids’ grandpar-
ents so they could spend time
together. We have done this
with seniors at our church,
who let our kids call them
“Grandma and Grandpa.”
Please suggest to “Pa and
Ma” that they look in their
area for a family with young
children who would love to
have them in their lives. --

either for your own account or
someone else’s.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- Spending time with people
not in your usual crowd will give
you a fresh approach on things.
Additionally, conversing with these
people will invigorate your thinking.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
Seek out some quiet place where
you’ll be able to sort out your
thoughts. You need to carefully
plan a campaign to further your
ambitions.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- One of your best attributes is
the ability to recognize the worth of
others’ ideas, and to use them in
ways that could feather your own
nest.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) -- An important idea can
be achieved if you slightly alter
or modify your present course
of action. One tactic might be
circumventing an obstacle instead
of attempting to destroy it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19) -- You’re likely to get an
opportunity to win over a new ally
by frankly discussing a matter
of mutual importance. Point out
how each of you might benefit by
working together.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Take some time to figure out new
methods that could improve your
standing at work. Your concepts
could turn out to be quite ingenious.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -- This could be one of those
interesting days when unexpected
developments prove to be the most
fun. Play it loose, so that you’ll be
able to take advantage of any
shifting conditions.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Any flashes of inspiration should
not be treated lightly, especially if
they concern your home or family.
Follow up on your hunches and
see where they lead.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) --
Your mental faculties are extremely
acute, giving you the power to
solve all kinds of problems. Put this
force to work on something that’s
really important.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) --
Accurately sizing up work- related
situations shouldn’t be too difficult.
Chances are you’ll arrive at your
conclusions intuitively, and logic
will back you up.
