... the Canal Days Cheerleading Competition chair
day, the biggest remaining offering is the annual Canal Days Cheerleading Competition. Although this is Megan Mesker’s first year spearheading the competition, she’s familiar with the way things run, having helped out for a number of years. “This is my first year coordinating the cheerleading competition for Canal Days,” she said. “I got involved with the encouragement of a few of the Canal Days committee members. The past couple of years, I was always at the cheerleading competition, either helping my brother Michael with the music or coaching a squad that was competing.” Since the competition hosts around 16 squads each year, a lot of time and effort goes into making sure everything runs smoothly that day.

DELPHOS — When driving by the Habitat for Humanity home at the corner of 10th and Washington streets on any given Saturday morning, Rick Boop is likely to be among those swinging a hammer or installing insulation or siding. This is the sixth Habitat home Boop has helped construct, the third in Delphos. He has also worked on homes in Lima and Spencerville. “I like to help my neighbors,” Boop said. “Even if they’re six blocks from me or another town over. I’ve also learned a lot by doing it.” By day, Boop is a service technician with Green Fiber here in Delphos. On the weekends, he’s a home construction warrior. See BOOP, page 10

Rib Fest set to feed, entertain thousands
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor news@delphosherald.com VAN WERT — For many people, barbecue ribs are a passion. Those people are in for a treat again this year. For the seventh time, the Van Wert Ribfest will not only feed a few thousand people this coming weekend but will also entertain them as well on Friday and Saturday. This mix of food, fun and music has grown from its beginnings in 2007, taking on side events like the Wiffleball homerun derby and pig races, while still keeping the spotlight on the vendors, food and entertainment. Aside from fighting off some wet weather in the past couple of years, those attending have had plenty to make them happy. The preparations began nearly a year ago as the Rib Fest Committee laid out events and entertainers. Larry Lee, executive director of the Van Wert Convention and Visitors Bureau, said his group was happy with the event as it was planned last year. “The Rib Fest is an important source of income for the bureau, as well as an opportunity for the entire community to come together for some great fun, great food and great entertainment,” he said. “Other than adjusting

the hours of the Rib Fest, most of the event will remain unchanged.” Storms and high winds forced the Saturday night entertainment to be canceled in 2012 The same headliner was booked for 2013 — The Earthquakers. This area will finally get to hear this band live after the storm kept them from taking the stage last year. Other performers at the Rib Fest will be Bad Advice, Mo Blues Band and Boom Swang, who all play Friday night, and Section Ate as well as Double Kik, who will join The Earthquakers for the Saturday night lineup. See RIB, page 10

The seventh Habitat for Humanity home in Delphos is the sixth such endeavor Boop has worked on.

One Year Ago With one eye looking ahead to November and the other on the state legislature, Allen County Prosecutor Juergen Waldick has announced his retirement. However, he will continue to serve and plans to do so for the foreseeable future. The Delphos resident said possible changes to the state retirement plan have brought on a type of “retire-rehire” scenario similar to what is common in public education. 25 Years Ago – 1988 Columbian Squires of Circle 3329, Delphos, had a chance over the past several days to show its civic pride by refurbishing the historic markers on State Route 66 south of town and on Fifth Street at the city’s west end. The markers remind residents and visitors the city was established in 1845 by German immigrants under the leadership of the Rev. John Otto Bredeick and Ferdinand Bredeick. One Tri-County student received a degree from Ohio University and four were named to the school’s dean’s list for the spring quarter. Karen Lynn Book, of Venedocia, received a bachelor of science degree in journalism. Named to the dean’s list were Kathy Lynn Beeler of Elida, sophomores Anissa Lynne Bracken and Bruce A. Schroeder of Cloverdale, and Kaye E. Otto of Columbus Grove. Delphos Bass Club held its fourth tournament at Hamilton Lake, Ind. John

Moreo took first place with six bass weighing seven pounds, 13 ounces. Second place went to Butch Lucas with three fish weighing six pounds, 14 ounces. Joe Kent won third with three fish weighing six pounds. He also had the biggest bass at three pounds, 10 ounces. 50 Years Ago – 1963 Because a dentist who died 14 years ago in Denver never forgot his hometown, some type of hospital facility may be built in Delphos. The dentist was Dr. William T. Chambers, born here in 1866. When he died in 1949 in Denver, his will was found to contain an $80,000 trust fund to build a hospital in Delphos. Mrs. Roland Swank, member of the Elida Garden Club, received the tri-color award in arrangements for club members in the recent flower show held by that community’s garden club; Mrs. Earl Hull of Lima, received the tri-color award for non-club members. For juniors, it was Sheryl Kiesweeter of Elida. Rev. Joseph Schill, pastor of St. John’s Catholic Church, has returned from a vacation in the Caribbean. The Delphos priest served as chaplain on the SS Ariadne, which flies the flag of the Steamship Lines of American and whose port is Miami. On the seven-day cruise of the Caribbean, the ship docked at San Juan, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. 75 Years Ago – 1938

For The Record
The people of Delphos, Elida, Lima and other communities in this territory will join together in the dedication and grand opening of Harding Highway, U.S. Route 30-S, Aug. 4. According to the present plans, the Delphos delegation of business and professional men and private citizens will motor to Elida early in the afternoon, where they will join with the Lima and Elida delegations at the eastern end of the new highway. The motor caravan will proceed west to Scotts Crossing where the ribbon-cutting ceremonies will take place. There was an exceptionally large attendance at the stag party held at the Idlewild clubhouse, northeast of this city, Wednesday evening for the members of Delphos Council, No. 1362, Knights of Columbus. The Rev. John H. Miller, pastor of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, addressed the meeting. The committees for the annual K of C picnic are to meet Saturday night in order to complete arrangements for the outing. The annual election of officers took place Wednesday evening at a meeting of the Women’s Benefit Association. The meeting was conducted at the home of the Junior leader, Mrs. Roland Brenneman, West Third Street. Gloria Anspaugh was chosen as president; Mary Catherine Collette, vice president; Betty Knepper, secretary; Betty Lou Schmersal, treasurer; and Helen Schmersal, press reporter.

Today is Monday, July 29, the 210th day of 2013. There are 155 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 29, 1981, Britain’s Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. (However, the couple divorced in 1996.) On this date: In 1030, the patron saint of Norway, King Olaf II, was killed in battle. In 1588, the English attacked the Spanish Armada in the Battle of Gravelines, resulting in an English victory. In 1890, artist Vincent van Gogh, 37, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Auvers-surOise, France. In 1900, Italian King Humbert I was assassinated by an anarchist; he was succeeded by his son, Victor Emmanuel III. In 1921, Adolf Hitler became the leader (“fuehrer”) of the National Socialist German Workers Party. In 1948, Britain’s King George VI opened the Olympic Games in London. In 1957, the International Atomic Energy Agency was established. Jack Paar made his debut as host of NBC’s “Tonight



Show.” In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the National Aeronautics and Space Act, creating NASA. In 1967, an accidental rocket launch aboard the supercarrier USS Forrestal in the Gulf of Tonkin resulted in a fire and explosions that killed 134 servicemen. In 1975, President Gerald R. Ford became the first U.S. president to visit the site of the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland. In 1980, a state funeral was held in Cairo, Egypt, for the deposed Shah of Iran, who had died two days earlier at age 60. In 1993, the Israeli Supreme Court acquitted retired Ohio autoworker John Demjanjuk of being Nazi death camp guard “Ivan the Terrible” and threw out his death sentence; Demjanjuk was set free. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush refused to release a congressional report on possible links between Saudi Arabian officials and the September 11 hijackers, saying disclosure “would help the enemy” by revealing intelligence sources and methods. Boston’s Bill Mueller became the first player in major league history to hit grand slams from both sides of the plate in a game and connected for three homers in a 14-7 win at Texas.

Albert (Don) Geiger, 76, of Ottoville, died at 2:50 a.m. Sunday at Sarah Jane Living Center, Delphos, with family at his side.

He was preceded in death by a sister, Ginny Soldner. He worked as a carpenter in Michigan and in the Lima area building homes and businesses before going to work for St. Rita’s Hospital.

Night of Hope to combat human trafficking
BY LINDSAY MCCOY DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com VAN WERT - Trinity Friends Church of Van Wert will be hosting a Night of Hope event to help combat human trafficking. The event will be held Friday with two separate events. The awareness fair will be held from 5-7 p.m. and will be followed by worship through music as well as a time for testimony through speakers and a challenge to action from 7-9 p.m. “We really want to spread the light that there is human slavery going on today,” said Trinity Friends Youth Pastor Steve Heilshorn. “We are partnering with several organizations in the tremendous fight to save people from human trafficking as well as to share the message of one hope in Christ.” In June, Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine released his office’s annual human trafficking report that said that local authorities in Ohio had uncovered 30 cases of domestic sex trafficking this past year. The cases involved 38 victims and 21 traffickers. Three of these cases were reported by agencies in Northwest Ohio. Since 2011, the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Northern District of Ohio has charged 32 people with human trafficking-related offenses. Twenty-six of these offenders have been convicted to date. A state law also passed in June, the Safe Harbor Law, created harsher penalties for human traffickers and strengthened support for victims. “I don’t think people realize that 27 million people are still enslaved today,” remarked Heilshorn. “If you ask people about the worst time of slavery in history, most do not think of present times, but we live in a time far worse than many of the historical slavery issues of the past.” The human trafficking is not just an issue found in other countries but is also prevalent in Northwest Ohio. Toledo, OH, has been very proactive in bringing its own large human trafficking issue to light. Toledo is number one in the United States for sex trafficking. “We want people to come and see what is going on,” noted this local youth pastor. “It will show people how they can get involved. There are a variety of different ways to help.” Currently, 13 organizations are scheduled for the Night of Hope awareness fair which will also include a variety of products to buy which proceeds go towards this worldwide issue. Sherry Searles will be present with her project, Accessories of Hope, that sells accessories made by people who have been rescued from slavery. All profits from this business go directly back to the people who made the items and are trying to restore their lives. According to the same


Summer blood donations encouraged to keep pace with blood needs
Information submitted FORT WAYNE — While thousands of people have responded to the recent emergency call for blood and platelet donations from the American Red Cross, there remains an urgent need for platelet donors, as well as donors with types O negative, B negative and A negative blood. Right now blood products are being distributed to area hospitals almost as quickly as donations are coming in. “We are grateful to the donors who have rolled up a sleeve to give blood or platelets to the Red Cross in the last couple of weeks, but our work is not over,” said Karen Kelley, Communications Director for the Indiana-Ohio Red Cross Blood Services Region. “The need for blood is constant. As July comes to a close and August begins, we ask eligible donors to please give blood or platelets as soon as possible.” The Red Cross issued an emergency call for blood donations on July 9 after seeing about 50,000 fewer blood and platelet donations than expected in June. Donations have increased by about 15 percent since the emergency call for donors was issued, but the middle and end of July mark only the halfway point to the challenging summer months. “The summer is historically one of the most difficult times of the year for blood and platelet donations,” said Kelley. “Many donors are still enjoying summer activities, but patients are unable to take a vacation from needing lifesaving

Information submitted

report from the Attorney General’s office, right now in Ohio more than 2,000 schoolaged children are potentially at risk of being forced into human trafficking through exploited labor, domestic servitude, or prostitution. The average entry age into the commercial sex market is 12-14, but children much younger have been found within the system. School children are especially susceptible to falling prey to trafficking as the demand for young victims continues to grow. Traffickers often draw students through telephone chat lines, clubs, on the street through friends, and at malls. Once a trafficker has gained access to a student, they may even use this student to recruit other students within a school system or at an afterschool program. Ohio Governor John Kasich also released a report designed to work in conjunction with The Ohio Human Trafficking Act of 2012. This report made recommendations to form a task force to work alongside the state laws and provide services and treatment to victims once they have been identified as a human slave. The Van Wert State Highway Patrol, for example, has been working alongside other state programs and organizations identify and notify the proper officials needed to combat any issues found locally or in surrounding areas.

transfusions.” Blood and platelets are needed for many reasons. Accident and burn victims, heart surgery patients and organ transplant patients, as well as those receiving treatment for cancer or sickle cell disease, may depend on lifesaving transfusions. Each day, the Red Cross Indiana-Ohio Blood Services Region needs approximately 500 donors to step forward and give blood. Blood and platelets can only come from generous volunteer donors. Eligible donors with types O negative, B negative and A negative blood are especially encouraged to give double red cells where available. Type O negative blood is the universal blood type and can be transfused to anyone who needs blood. Types A negative and B negative blood can be transfused to Rh positive or negative patients. How to donate blood Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-7332767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

VAN WERT — The annual Highway 127 Yard Sale is coming to Van Wert County Thursday through Sunday. Every year individuals clean out their closets and stake out their front yards along the Hwy 127 corridor stretching over 690 miles from Addison, Mich. to Gadsden, Ala. They band together as communities, in groups or as individuals and over a four-day weekend, they welcome the onslaught of visitors from the north, south, east and west. The Van Wert County Fairgrounds is ready this year to help the public enjoy the event more than ever. The Fairgrounds will get a head start by opening the day before, on Wednesday, with a large group of “Yard Sale” vendors inside the fairgrounds. This will allow local residents to shop early before the crowds show up. Those folks who open their own yard sales, only Highway 127, will get a chance to shop early too – before they are swamped with shoppers. Besides many on-site yard sale vendors (100 or more) there will be food vendors offering a variety of food to all shoppers. The restroom facilities at the fairgrounds will also be open. There is easy, free parking at the fairgrounds to shop the vendors on-site or head north into Van Wert to shop along Washington Street. The Fairgrounds will then close their on-site vendor yard sales one day early so they may packup and have Sunday to shop the Highway 127 Yard Sale. The Fairgrounds will be open Wednesday through Saturday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. There is always plenty of room at the fairgrounds, so yard sale rental space is available. This is a great opportunity for many locals in Van Wert County to turn “extra stuff” into cash. If you do not live on Washington Street or Hwy 127, grab a spot at the Fairgrounds and get access to the large crowds that pass through Van Wert during the weekend. For information or to rent a 10 foot by 10 foot space for only $20, contact Ann Marshall, Fair Board Director, Van Wert County Fairgrounds, 419-238-4551.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Wolverine” slashed monsters and minions to debut atop the weekend box office. The Fox film featuring Hugh Jackman’s sixth turn as the claw-wielding superhero opened with $55 million in North America, according to studio estimates Sunday. Last weekend’s top movie, Warner Bros.’ low-budget horror “The Conjuring,” slipped to second place, adding another $22.1 million to its take. “Despicable Me 2” was in third with $16 million. The Universal animated sequel, with its cast of cute, yellow minions, has made more than $600 million worldwide since it came out four weeks ago. “The Wolverine,” which is set in Japan and features an international cast, earned another $86.1 million overseas. The film’s opening-week take surpassed the $120 million it cost to make, said Chris Aronson, Fox’s head of domestic distribution. “It’s a huge opening for the clawed one,” he said. “It played equally well from Maine to Maui.” Another Fox film, the animated snail-racing tale “Turbo,” was in fourth place with $13.3 million. Adam Sandler’s “Grown Ups 2” followed with $11.5 million. Woody Allen’s latest, “Blue Jasmine,” enjoyed a stellar opening of its own, though on a much smaller scale. Starring Cate Blanchett, the film opened in just six theaters but still collected $612,767. “It’s one of the biggest opening per-theater averages ever for a non-animated film,” said Paul Dergarabedian of box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Ticket sales this weekend were up almost 30 percent over the same weekend last summer, he said. “It was a good weekend to be a moviegoer because the choices just got a lot more interesting,” Dergarabedian said, noting a mix that includes animated, independent and big-budget action offerings. “Fruitvale Station,” the Sundance winner already generating Oscar buzz, expanded to theaters across the country and edged its way into the top 10, contributing to a summer box office that is up more than 10 percent over last year. ——— 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 on Monday. 1. “The Wolverine,” $55 million ($86.1 million international). 2. “The Conjuring,” $22.1 million ($6.9 million international). 3. “Despicable Me 2,” $16 million ($24.5 million international). 4. “Turbo,” $13.3 million ($12.5 million international). 5. “Grown Ups 2,” $11.5 million ($4.2 million international). 6. “Red 2,” $9.4 million ($6.1 million international). 7. “Pacific Rim,” $7.5 million ($14.25 million international). 8. “The Heat,” $6.85 million ($3.1 million international). 9. “R.I.P.D.,” $5.85 million ($3.1 million international). 10. “Fruitvale Station,” $4.65 million. ——— Estimated weekend ticket sales at international theaters (excluding the U.S. and Canada) for films distributed overseas by Hollywood studios, according to Rentrak: 1. “The Wolverine,” $86.1 million. 2. “Fast & Furious 6,” $25.3 million. 3. “Despicable Me 2,” $24.5 million. 4. “White House Down,” $19.8 million. 5. “Monsters University,” $15.6 million. 6. “Pacific Rim,” $14.25 million. 7. “Turbo,” $12.5 million. 8. “The Conjuring,” $6.9 million. 9. “Red 2,” $6.1 million. 10. “World War Z,” $5.6 million.

MATTOON, Ill. (AP) — If finding a high school ring doesn’t seem like a big deal consider this: Until a few days ago, the last time Dick Diedrich saw his ring he was living in suburban Chicago with his parents and Harry Truman was in the White House. Diedrich, 82, now has his class of 1949 ring from J. Sterling Morton High School in Cicero thanks to a Waukesha, Wis., man who returned it to him after finding it with a metal detector in a lake near his home. The ring’s journey back to its proper owner in Illinois began with Mike Geiger’s phone call earlier this month to the Mattoon home of Dick Diedrich and his wife of 60 years, Doris. “He said, ‘I think I have something that goes back to your high school years’,” Dick

her honeymoon with new hubby, Tyler. She pictures someplace romantic, secluded and cozy. No sooner have her feet touched the ground after being carried over the threshold than she discovers her love nest is really a one-time mortuary! Graveside Manor, as the locals call it, has been abandoned for years, mainly due to the rumors of it being haunted. Cozy as a bat cave, it’s about as secluded as Grand Central Station. A daffy maid shows up to clean the place and gets lost in the catacombs behind the walls. This goes unnoticed because Tyler is too busy ducking a female ghost with a hatchet, three high-school kids trying to set up a Halloween prank and his wise-cracking female editor who once had a crush on him. Throw in an absent-minded cop and the escaped lunatic he’s looking for and the stage is set for a Honeymoon at Graveside Manor.

Valenti steals Fricke Memorial Select on final lap at Limaland
Information Submitted LIMA – The 2013 Budweiser Thunderstocks division has been dominated by Jeff Koz and Shawn Valenti, although Tony Anderson has held the points lead for most of the season. Koz and Valenti have won all but one of the season’s feature events, while Anderson is still looking for that elusive first triumph, despite being #2 all-time at Limaland Motorsports Park with 30 career wins at the track. The evening’s features began with Anderson moving to the front of the field for the Thunderstocks 15-lap A-Main. Koz and the improving Tim Cole produced a spirited battle for second with Anderson cruising along through the mid-point of the race. At lap number nine, Koz was on a serious roll at the top the track surface and made a strong pass around Anderson for the lead. With no traffic in front of him, Koz proceeded to pull away from the rest of the field and roared to his fifth win of 2013 Jeff Koslakiewicz and Shawn Valenti battle for the race lead at Limaland.

Ryan Newman Parcells always gave team the best chance to win Hoosier wins Brickyard 400 at Indy
BY TOM CANAVAN Associated Press give those players who put themselves at risk and in harm’s way a chance to achieve success and that goes for universities and professional teams as well,” Parcells said. “I know I preached that to every organization and to every coaching staff I ever had. These guys deserve a chance to win and we have to give it to them.” Fellow Hall-of-Famer Harry Carson was already on the Giants’ roster when Parcells was hired. Despite being one of the best linebackers in the league, Carson said Parcells didn’t hesitate to tell him he had bad habits as a middle linebacker and that he could be better, then riding him on it. When Carson was at his lowest point, Parcells built him back up and made him better. “Bill is not for everybody,” Carson added. “But he is a coach who knows his stuff and he was able to implement what he wanted to do with players like me, who were willing to bite the bullet and be patient with him and not take it personally or be bruised by the criticism he might level at you. His criticism could be brutal but he knew what buttons to push for each player.” Parcells also knew he wanted hard-nosed players who knew their roles. He never asked them to do things they couldn’t do. “He gets his players’ expectations so high, they don’t have a choice but to succeed,” Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said. “He did that year after year after year.” Despite living on the edge off the field, Taylor respected Parcells no-nonsense style. “Don’t get me wrong; the guy could coach his (butt) off and you gotta remember that was one helluva staff, but what struck me in the early days about Bill was his ability to motivate,” Taylor wrote in statement released through his agent, Mark Lepselter. “He’d always try to tweak me and I’d give it right back but I knew he knew that I was a little different.” Parcells was a little different, too. He was a Jersey guy, even before Tony Soprano or Bruce Springsteen made that popular. Coming from a family that by his own admission was confrontational, he loved the give and take. See PARCELLS, page 7 Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — A born and bred Hoosier, Ryan Newman spent his childhood racing everywhere from Anderson to Winchester and every short track he could find in a state mad about racing. He graduated from Purdue and landed a summer job working in Jeff Gordon’s old race shop in Pittsboro. One of the perks? He got to live in the shop and sleep alongside the cars. And like many Indiana kids, he revered Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the track he first visited in 1986 and later accidentally stumbled upon NASCAR’s inaugural 1992 test while out buying tires with his mother. A win at the famed Brickyard? That would be a dream come true for the South Bend native. Newman made the boyhood dream a cool reality, taking the checkered flag Sunday to end a 49-race winless streak in front of his home state fans. His parents, who fueled his love of racing and took him to the 500 as a kid, joined him for his biggest win in Indiana. Newman was as cool and collected in Victory Lane as he was on the track when he held off Jimmie Johnson. There were no tears, no quiver in his voice and no need to collect himself as Newman was strangely stoic. “I don’t show a lot of emotion; I think everybody knows that,” said Newman, who likened the victory to his 2008 win at the Daytona 500. “I had the same emotion, the same thankfulness I did when I won the Daytona 500 because I feel everybody that has been a part of my racing career — from people that bought my racing uniform, bought me a right rear tire, given us a credit card to get to some race track at some point in my career — those are the people that helped me get to where I am today. “To me, it’s awesome to be here at Indy. It’s awesome because it’s my home state. I’ve raced go-karts at pretty much every go-kart track around here, been kicked out of half of them. Those are the things that make it special. I think about those things more than I carry the emotion on my cheeks.” So the emotion was seen in father Greg, who spotted for Newman on Sunday, and his mother, Diane. See RACING, page 7

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Bill Parcells learned a life-changing lesson in his first coaching job at little Hastings College — give your team the best chance to win. If that later meant cutting a couple of popular guys to get his type of tough-minded players, or tearing down a perennial All Pro linebacker to make him better, patting a shy player on the butt instead of yelling at him, spending the endless hours on the Xs and Os or even looking the other way with Lawrence Taylor, at times, Parcells did it. It was a way of coaching that helped Parcells change the fortunes of four struggling franchises, win two Super Bowls with the Giants, go to a third with New England and win election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on his fourth attempt. Parcells will enter the Canton, Ohio, shrine Sunday with a 172130-1 record in a 19-year head coaching career. “He worked hard and he had Parcells the ability to get along with people and motivate people, and he had a burning desire to win,” said 82-year-old Dean Pryor, who had coached Parcells at Wichita and then hired him at Hastings after he was cut by the Lions. “You know, he got his butt chewed as much as the players but boy, I mean, if Bill made a mistake or he did something right, he didn’t forget it. He was extremely bright. He could evaluate a player, watch him and make him better.” Parcells still stays in touch with Pryor, who intends to make the trip from Jonesboro, Ark. to Canton this weekend. The message that Pryor preached about giving players a chance to win never left Parcells. “You as an individual coach have a responsibility to try to

Puig homers in 11th, Dodgers beat Reds 1-0 Golf BY JOE RESNICK chise moved from Brooklyn to Associated Press Los Angeles following the 1957 Capsules season.
Associated Press OAKVILLE, Ontario — Brandt Snedeker won the Canadian Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title of the year, closing with 2-under 70 for a three-stroke victory. Snedeker took the lead Saturday after second-round leader Hunter Mahan withdrew when his wife went into labor and held on in the breezy final round at Glen Abbey. Mahan’s wife, Kandi, gave birth to daughter Zoe Olivia Mahan early Sunday in Texas. Snedeker finished at 16-under 272. The 6-time PGA Tour winner also won the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February. Dustin Johnson, William McGirt, Matt Kuchar and Jason Bohn tied for second. Johnson was tied for the lead after a birdie on No. 16, then drove out of bounds and hit the lip of a fairway bunker en route to a triple-bogey 7 on the par-4 17th. He finished with a 70. McGirt had a 68, and Kuchar and Bohn shot 71. See GOLF, page 7 LOS ANGELES — Yasiel Puig does everything with a touch of panache, including his game-ending home run trot. The Los Angeles Dodgers’ excitable rookie homered with two outs in the 11th inning for a 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday. Puig circled the bases and slid into home plate, where teammates were waiting for him after his first career walkoff homer. “Each player does what he can when he gets to the plate. Some people jump, some people slide, some people run,” Puig said through a translator. “I have a previous teammate in Cuba that jumped and hurt his ankle. So I decided to slide.” Puig drove an 0-1 pitch deep into the leftfield pavilion against rookie Curtis Partch (0-1) for his 10th homer and 23rd RBI in 48 bigleague games. It salvaged an otherwise frustrating afternoon for the Dodgers, who were held to one hit by Tony Cingrani through the first seven innings. Brandon League (6-3) pitched two hitless innings for the win. The NL West leaders, who took three out of four from the Reds, won for the 26th time in 32 games and extended their lead to 2 1/2 games over Arizona. They were a season-worst 12 games under .500 and 9 1/2 games out of first place on June 21. Cincinnati pitchers set a franchise record with 20 strikeouts. Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez and Tim Federowicz each fanned three times as the Dodgers established their highest single-game total for strikeouts since the fran-

Cingrani, facing a lineup missing leadoff hitter Carl Crawford for the second straight day because of a high temperature, tied a career high with 11 strikeouts in his 12th big-league start before he was lifted for a pinch-hitter. The only hit against Cingrani was a 2-out single through the box in the third inning by Dodgers pitcher Chris Capuano — his first hit of the season. Mark Ellis followed with a towering drive toward the left-field corner that Chris Heisey caught in front of the short fence. Los Angeles didn’t get another base-runner against the 24-year-old left-hander until Puig walked on a full count leading off the seventh. But the rookie was picked off first base with Gonzalez — the team’s RBI leader — at the plate. Capuano held the Reds to three hits over 6 2/3 innings. The left-hander retired 15 of his first 16 batters, less than 24 hours after teammate Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched 2-hit ball over seven innings and retired his final 13 in a 4-1 victory. Joey Votto’s 2-out single in the first was Cincinnati’s only hit until Devin Mesoraco snapped a string of 13 straight Cincinnati outs with a leadoff double in the sixth. Mesoraco advanced to third on Cingrani’s sacrifice bunt and Reds manager Dusty Baker put on a suicide squeeze with Derrick Robinson at the plate. Mesoraco had to return to third after the rookie fouled off an 0-1 pitch and was retired in a rundown after Robinson grounded to third baseman Juan Uribe with the infield playing in. The Reds wasted another leadoff double in the seventh by Votto.

Jimenez shuts down Rangers in 6-0 win
Associated Press

CLEVELAND — The outlook for the Cleveland Indians changed considerably over the weekend. The Indians shut out Texas for the second straight day, 6-0 Sunday, to complete a 3-game sweep and give Cleveland its fourth straight victory. Ubaldo Jimenez (8-5) allowed two hits in eight scoreless innings — matching his longest outing of the season — and the Indians recorded their major league-leading 14th shutout. Cleveland is three games behind Detroit in the AL Central. The Rangers have seen their normally high-powered offense come to a stop. Texas hasn’t scored since the eighth inning of Friday night’s 11-8 loss in 11 innings, a stretch of 21 innings. The Rangers are 2-8 since the All-Star break. Elvis Andrus’ first-inning double and A.J. Pierzynski’s single in the fifth accounted for the Rangers’ only hits. Jason Kipnis’ 2-out single in the fifth broke a scoreless tie. Yan Gomes’ RBI single and Michael Bourn’s 2-run double added three runs in the sixth as the Indians completed their first 3-game sweep at home over Texas since Aug. 12-14, 1980. Jimenez struck out six and walked three. Vinnie Pestano pitched the ninth. Kipnis’ single came off Alexi Ogando (4-3), who allowed one run in 4 2/3 innings. Cleveland’s sixth-inning runs came off reliever Robbie Ross. Mike Aviles added a 2-run homer in the eighth. Kipnis’ first-inning single capped a 12-pitch at-bat against Ogando, who had to work around trouble in the first three innings before settling down. He retired seven straight at one point before Bourn drew a 2-out walk in the fifth. Nick Swisher singled before Kipnis dropped a single in front of rightfielder Nelson Cruz to score Bourn.

Baseball Hall doors open for White, Ruppert, O’Day
BY JOHN KEKIS Associated Press COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — The rain, the gloom, the small gathering of fans didn’t matter. For the families of baseball pioneers Jacob Ruppert Jr., Hank O’Day and James “Deacon” White, this was what they had long been waiting for. All three have been dead for more than seven decades. Now their legacies were secure with their induction Sunday into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. “This is a day we will all remember for the rest of our lives,” said Jerry Watkins, great grandson of White and one of nearly 50 family members in attendance. “In my mind, the only way it could have been better is if my dad were here to see it. My dad loved his grandfather, he loved baseball and he loved the Chicago Cubs. It was his lifelong dream to see his grandfather enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame and it was his lifelong dream to see the Cubs play in the World Series. Dad, today you got one of them.” White, a barehanded catcher who grew up in Caton, N.Y., near Corning, was one of major-league baseball’s earliest stars. In fact, he was the first batter in the first professional game on May 4, 1871, and laced a double. An outstanding hitter, White was regarded as the best catcher in baseball before switching to third base later in his nearly 20-year career. A deeply religious man, White was nicknamed “Deacon” and dubbed “the most admirable superstar of the 1870s” by Bill James in his “Historical Baseball Extract.” White played for six teams and had a .312 career average. He finished with 2,067 hits, 270 doubles, 98 triples, 24 home runs and 988 RBIs before retiring in 1890. “In my heart, I never believed this day would come,” Watkins added. “If my grandfather were alive today, he would say thank you to the Hall of Fame for this great honor and he would say thank you to each of you for being here. So, on his behalf, I say thank you.” Ruppert was born in Manhattan in 1867 and instead of college went to work for his father in the family brewing business. He also fashioned a military career, rising to the rank of colonel in the National Guard, and served four terms in Congress from 18991907 before becoming president of the Jacob Ruppert Brewing Co. upon the death of his father in 1915.

Newman kept it together during his celebratory burnout and the drive to Victory Lane, a hallowed area that he twice had to ask his crew over the radio for directions how to get there. He took the customary ride in a convertible around the track with his wife and two young daughters and happily bowed again and again to kiss the Yard of Bricks. Sure, he smiled and shared some tender hugs with one of his daughters. But that was the most anyone was getting out of Newman, who had admitted to getting emotional after winning the pole on Saturday but seemed almost numb following Sunday’s win. Newman beat Johnson twice on this Brickyard weekend, first when he set a NASCA R track record in knocking Johnson off the pole in qualifying, then Sunday with a fast final pit stop to snatch the win from the 4-time Indianapolis winner. The two were the class of the field — they combined to lead 118 of the 160 laps — but it was Johnson who dominated the race and appeared to be just a bit better. But Johnson pitted from the lead with 27 laps remaining and it was a slow final stop for the Hendrick Motorsports crew. Newman pitted after that and took only two tires to move into the (Continued from page 6) lead after the green-flag stops cycled through the field.

SENIOR BRITISH OPEN SOUTHPORT, England — Bernhard Langer and Mark Wiebe were tied after two playoff holes in the stormdelayed Senior British Open when darkness suspended play at Royal Birkdale. They will finish the playoff this morning. Wiebe shot a 4-under 66 to match Langer at 9-under 271. Langer had a 70. They each parred the par-4 18th twice in the playoff. Langer, the 2010 winner at Carnoustie, blew a 2-stroke lead with a double bogey on the final hole of regulation after hitting into a greenside bunker. Minutes earlier, Wiebe’s birdie putt at No. 18 came up short. Corey Pavin, Peter Senior and David Frost tied for third at 6 under. Pavin shot a 65, Senior had a 66 and Frost a 70.

LADIES EUROPEAN MASTERS DENHAM, England — Hall-ofFamer Karrie Webb rallied to win the Ladies European Masters, making two eagles in a 7-under 65 for a 1-stroke victory in the Ladies European Tour event. The 38-year-old Australian, preparing for the Women’s British Open at St. Andrews, had a 16-under 200 total at Buckinghamshire. She has three victories this season, also winning the Australian Ladies Masters in February and the LPGA Tour’s ShopRite LPGA Classic in June. Webb eagled the par-5 ninth and 14th holes. South Africa’s Ashleigh Simon was second. She closed with a 69. The Women’s British Open starts Thursday on the Old Course.

Interested in baseball since he was a kid, Ruppert purchased the Yankees before the 1915 season for $480,000, then proceeded to transform what had been a perennial also-ran in the American League into a powerhouse. He hired Miller Huggins as manager, Ed Barrow as his general manager, snared Babe Ruth in a 1919 deal with the Boston Red Sox that changed the dynamics of the sport and built Yankee Stadium in 1923. When Ruppert died in 1939, his teams had won 10 AL pennants and seven World Series in 18 seasons. “For my family, it’s a huge honor. I’m sure Uncle Jacob would be proud,” said Anne Vernon, a great grandniece of Ruppert. “It’s also very meaningful for my children. It has meant so much.” O’Day was born on the rural west side of Chicago in 1859 and played ball as a kid with his older brothers. He apprenticed as a steamfitter while pitching for several local teams. He turned pro in 1884 but his arm suffered mightily in seven years of action and he retired not long after leading the New York Giants to the National League pennant in 1889 and pitching a complete game to clinch the 19th-century precursor to the modern World Series.

by Sara Noel TRY A MONEY REGISTRY Dear Sara: I got a wedding invitation in the mail this week with a note that cash or gift cards are preferred. Is this in poor taste? -C.M., California
Dear C.M.: Call me a traditionalist, but I think it is in poor taste. However, I am not at all surprised by these types of requests and am not offended by them. I have seen them on birthday invitations, too. Gifts are not an obligation and shouldn’t be mentioned in the invitation. They’re voluntary and shouldn’t be expected. A family member or friend in the wedding party can share that the couple prefers cash if he or she is directly asked. Another option that’s more of a “meaningful gift” registry than what some might perceive as a “money grab” is rainfallofenvelopes. com. This site allows you to set up a registry that requests, gives and receives monetary gifts online. But it is a fact that times have changed. Many couples are including notes in their invitations that request cash gifts, and more and more people are finding it perfectly acceptable. Instead of being offended or judgmental, remember as the gift-giver that whether there’s a request note or a gift registry, what you give is still up to you. Dear Sara: Where can one purchase coconut oil? In one of your recent articles, a reader mentioned that she used coconut oil for her feet, but she didn’t mention where she got it from. -Allison B., email Dear Allison: Check health food stores, Trader Joe’s, Costco, Whole Foods and Wal-Mart. Many grocery stores carry it. If you have trouble finding it in the store, ask the manager. Dear Sara: I don’t have curtains, but I want to keep my room as dark as possible for sleeping. White poster board is the only creative idea I can come up with, although it is not quite large enough for some of my windows. Any ideas? -- M.L., email Dear M.L.: Thin Styrofoam insulation can be used. You can cover it with fabric if you don’t want it to look strange from the outside. You can get it with a foil coating. Some people use foilcovered cardboard, too. There are various blackout/darkening shades on the market. A sleep mask can be easier to manage. Tempur-Pedic offers a nice one. It’s not the cheapest, but it has an adjustable Velcro and elastic closure, and it contours to your face.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Tuesday, July 30, 2013 In the year ahead, a great deal of your focus is likely to be on many other things than your material concerns. Regardless, you’re still apt to show a steady financial growth. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There is good reason for your ears to be ringing today, because others are likely talking about you. Don’t worry -- it would boost your ego if you could hear what they’re saying. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Even if to the casual observer a recent development appears to be rather insignificant, you’ll know its true worth. It’ll elevate your hopes and expectations. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Look to turn a small profit today, either from a situation where you might share a common interest with another or from being in a position to serve as an intermediary. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You’re presently in a cycle where you could be extremely fortunate in some kind of partnership arrangement, provided both you and the other party play your assigned roles. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You stand an excellent chance of earning a bit more than usual from the utilization of your acquired knowledge and/or talents. Don’t hesitate to ask a fair price for your services. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You’ll have a marvelous way of brightening up situations wherever you go. You have the gift being able to offer constructive suggestions to people who lack the answers. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Be imaginative, resourceful and assertive, and success in your endeavors will be inevitable. In fact, there is little doubt that your brightness will win out over others’ boldness. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- The best way to get the support of others in an important venture is to give them some logical reasons why it can be as meaningful to them as it is to you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Do your best to stay on top of a situation from which you could financially benefit, even if the gains seem small. Don’t let the size of it dilute your efforts. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Listen to the suggestions of others, but be sure not to ignore you own counsel in the process. Your ideas are likely to be superior when it comes to personal matters. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Even though your ambitions are extremely strong, you’ll keep them a secret from other people. It looks like you’ll end up getting exactly what you want, to the surprise of many. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -It could prove to be helpful to discuss with a friend a matter that has been giving you trouble. Go to someone who has proven to be helpful in the past. Wednesday, July 31, 2013 An interesting change in your social life could be in the offing in the year ahead. You might meet and become involved with some rather eccentric individuals who will be considerably different from the old pals you’re used to. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Certain things that are significant to you might not be of equal interest to your friends. Pushing your opinions on them regardless of this fact could make them feel very uncomfortable. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Even if it causes you some inconvenience, honor your commitments. Your gesture will be appreciated, and you may even learn not to be so impulsive next time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Guard against a strong inclination to force rules and directives on your coworkers that you would never follow yourself. Set a good example and remember to be reasonable. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- There is a high probability that you could form a strong attraction to someone that is likely to end just as abruptly as it begins. Do your best to see people for who they really are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Things should go rather smoothly for you, provided you’re not too indecisive. Think ahead as much as you can and stick to the plans that you make. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A poor attitude generally brings bad results, and today will be no exception. If you treat distasteful tasks resentfully, chances are you’ll end up having to do them all over again. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Although you generally are a lucky gambler, there is a possibility you might be tempted to take a chance on something that you know is impossible. You’ll lose. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Be extremely careful not to treat your colleagues or partners in a brusque manner. You may want to unload on them, but it will only end up making everybody angry. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Someone who is skilled at uncovering information that should be kept private may get you to reveal something that you promised to keep to yourself. Be on your toes. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find a frivolous activity intriguing, despite its high cost. You’re likely to take part, so you need to make sure that you get your money’s worth. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -When promoting an interest of yours, be careful how you behave in front of others. Your image is a bit fragile, and you wouldn’t want to appear selfish. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- This is not a good day to debate controversial issues. You’re prone to blurting things out that would be better left unsaid, and you could say something that would leave a lasting scar.

Indianapolis church Rescuers say 37 dead in Italy bus plunge mourns 3 who died in bus crash
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indianapolis congregation on Sunday mourned the deaths of their youth pastor, his pregnant wife and another member who were killed when a church bus overturned with just a mile to go in a return trip from a Michigan summer camp. Saturday’s accident devastated members of Colonial Hills Baptist Church, who had been anticipating a joyful homecoming with the 37 people who were aboard the bus. Youth pastor Chad Phelps, his pregnant piano-teacher wife, Courtney Phelps, and chaperone Tonya Weindorf were killed, said deacon Jeff Leffew. Dozens of people were injured in the crash, which happened near Interstate 465. On Sunday, six teenagers remained hospitalized, including one who was in critical condition. Dennis Maurer, a 68-year-old congregation member who was driving the church-owned bus, told authorities that its brakes failed before it struck a raised concrete median and flipped on its side, Indianapolis police said. The Phelpses, who were in their mid-20s, were expecting their second child, Leffew said. Chad Phelps was the son of the church’s senior pastor and became its youth pastor late last year, he said. “We’re going to have a long road, but God is good,” Leffew said at a Sunday news conference. The couple’s nearly 2-year-old child, Chase, was injured in the crash. He was treated and released from a hospital Saturday, IU Health spokeswoman Sally Winter said. The bus had nearly completed its 365-mile journey from Camp CoBeAc, near Prudenville, Mich., when it overturned about a mile from the church, where parents were waiting to pick up their children who had just spent a week praying, zip-lining and playing basketball. Weindorf, the 51-year-old chaperone who was killed, had five children, Leffew said. “Tonya was at camp because she has a special-needs child who wanted to go, and she wanted to go and make it a good week, and according to her husband, it was a great week, and that’s who Tonya was,” said Leffew, who sent four of his own daughter to the camp. Leffew, of Fishers, said only one of his daughters was on a second bus that pulled into the parking lot, and that he raced to the northern Indianapolis crash site. What he found was surreal — clothing and other items strewn about and windows missing from the bus. “You’re just praying that it’s not as bad as it looks,” he said Saturday. His daughters escaped with bumps and bruises. Troy Riggs, Indianapolis’ public safety director, called the crash In the Deli a “great tragedy.” “They were not that far from home. … That only adds to the tragedy,” Riggs said Saturday. Duane Lloyd, who witnessed the crash, told WTHR that he saw the crash happen at about 4:15 p.m., which was about the time Chad Phelps tweeted that the group would arrive at the church. “I heard a skid. I looked back. I see this bus in the air and people falling out of the bus,” Lloyd said. “I could have gone my whole life without seeing that.” ROME (AP) — A tour bus filled with Italians returning home after an excursion plunged off a highway into a ravine in southern Italy on Sunday night after it had smashed into several cars that were slowed by heavy traffic, killing at least 37 people, said police and rescuers. Flashing signs near Avellino, outside Naples, had warned of slowed traffic ahead along a stretch of the A116 autostrada, a major highway crossing southern Italy, before the crash occurred, said highway police and officials, speaking on state radio early today. They said the bus driver, for reasons not yet determined, appeared to have lost control of his vehicle. Hours after the crash, firefighters said that they had extracted 37 bodies — most of the dead were found inside the mangled bus, which lay on its side , while a few of the victims were pulled out from underneath the wreckage, the Italian news agency ANSA said. State radio said 11 people were hospitalized with injuries, two of them in very critical condition. It was not immediately known if there were other survivors or any missing. Reports said as many as 49 people had been aboard the bus when it ripped through a guardrail after slamming into several cars, then plunged some 30 meters (100 feet) off the highway and into a ravine near a wooded area. State radio quoted Avellino police as saying the bus driver was among the dead. Occupants of cars which were hit by the bus stood on the highway near their vehicles. One car’s rear was completely crumpled, while another was smashed on

Pope draws 3M to Mass as Brazil trip closes
NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press RIO DE JANEIRO — Pope Francis’ historic trip to his home continent ended Sunday after a marathon weeklong visit to Brazil that drew millions of people onto the sands of Rio de Janeiro’s iconic Copacabana beach and appeared to reinvigorate the clergy and faithful alike in the world’s largest Catholic country. Dignitaries including Brazilian Vice Michel Temer Save up toPresident $1.81 turned out at Rio’s Antonio Carlos Jobim international airport to bid farewell to the Argentine-born pontiff after a visit marked by big moments. They included a visit to a vast church dedicated to Brazil’s patron saint, a rainy walk through one of Rio’s dangerous slums and a papal Mass that was one of the biggest in recent history. Speaking from a white stageselected on the varieties sands of Copacabana on Sunday, Francis urged a crowd estimated at 3 million people to go out and spread their faith “to the fringes of society, even to those who seem farthest away, most indifferent.” “The church needs you, your enthusiasm, your creativity and the joy that is so characteristic of you!” he said to applause in his final

The highway links western and eastern Italy across the south, and first reports said the passengers had spent the day in Puglia, an area near the Adriatic on the east coast famed for religious shrines. But on Monday, a state radio reporter at the scene said authorities told him that the bus had been bringing the passengers home after an outing to a thermal spa near the town of Benevento, not far from Avellino. Most of the passengers were from the Campania area around Naples, ANSA said. The bus dove off the highway near the town of Monteforte Irpino in Irpinia, a largely agricultural area about 60 kilometers (40 miles) inland from Naples and about 250 kilometers (160 miles) south of Rome.

Take control of your retirement savings
(StatePoint) Want to take control of your retirement planning, but don’t know how? You’re not alone. Most Americans want to manage their retirement portfolio on their own, but feel intimidated by the process, a new study reveals. Nearly three-quarters of Americans said they’d love to manage their own retirement portfolio if they had the right knowledge and tools, according to a survey by Jemstep.com, an online investment advisor, and market research group, Harris Interactive. Meanwhile, 67 percent said they think retirement investing is complex and intimidating. The good news is that planning for your future doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are four things you can do to take control: • Know how much you have and need: When you’re dieting, it’s helpful to weigh yourself and set a goal weight. Retirement savings works the same way. How much money do you have and what do you need to save for retirement? You can turn to free online tools for help. For example, CNN Money’s online calculator factors in your age, current income and savings to determine what you should be saving yearly to support 80 percent of your pre-retirement income. Visit cgi.money.cnn.com/tools to determine your goals. • Create a diversified portfolio: Research shows that the single best thing you can do for your retirement portfolio is to diversify holdings. That means splitting money between different asset classes, such as stocks, bonds, cash and commodities.

SilverSneakers promotes independence, healthier life
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff writer sgroves@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — SilverSneakers is a fun, energizing program that helps older adults take greater control of their health by encouraging physical activity and offering social events. Designed exclusively for older adults, it is the nation’s leading fitness program providing innovative health benefits for more than two decades. Today more than 40 Medicare health plans offer the program as a benefit to members across the nation.

Kreeger attributes the significant decrease in injuries from falls to the program’s success. “Complications from injuries sustained like broken hips and concussions due to falls has the highest rate of fatalities with seniors,” Kreeger reasoned. “ With customized classes designed to improve senior’s strength, flexibility, balance and endurance. “One lady could not pick up her grandchild,” she explained. “After setting and working on some goals, she finally could.” Other key benefits of membership include: health education seminars and other events that promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, a specially trained Program AdvisorSM at the fitness center to help introduce you to SilverSneakers and memberonly access to online support that can help you lose weight, quit smoking or reduce your stress.

Each asset class behaves differently under different market conditions. For example, when a recession hits, some asset classes might rise while others fall. Diversifying means that your portfolio should be more stable. How should you slice the pie? That depends on three things: your tolerance for risk, your goals, and the number of years until retirement. • Select the best investments: Next, you’ll need to pick specific funds for each asset class. You might decide, for example, to put 20 percent of your portfolio in funds that represent the stocks of large, stable companies. Which funds should you choose? When you’re making that choice, you’ll want to look at “fund characteristics,” such as the fees it charges, its historic returns, its volatility, and other factors. If this sounds complex, don’t worry. There are resources that can help. For example, Portfolio Manager, a new service from Jemstep, analyzes your current portfolio, gives you a personalized investment strategy, and offers step-by-step instructions on what to buy and sell to build the ideal portfolio for you. More information is available at Jemstep.com. • Stay on track: Things change over time. Stocks rise and fall. As they do, the weight of your different asset classes in your portfolio will change. Remember to periodically “rebalance” your portfolio with your diversification goals so you can maintain your target weights. Retirement investing doesn’t have to be complex or intimidating, especially if you have the right tools at your fingertips.

Pack a lunch, put on some sunscreen and take them on your own hiking or fishing adventure. The time you spend outdoors with kids is where some of their best memories will come from and can be a great way to teach valuable life lessons. “Beyond fresh air and an expansive playground, the outdoors provide an opportunity to pass key values on from one generation to the next, like sportsmanship, environmental stewardship and the importance of friendship,” says Mike Holliday, a father of three and worldclass fishing guide from Stuart, Florida, who wrote the “FishingKids” series of

books aimed at luring kids into outdoor adventure and family fun. You can get prepared for your trip in advance: • Read the FishingKids series together. The stories revolve around two best friends, Spinner and Bobber whose fishing adventures teach them about friendship and responsibility. When fun turns to trouble they look to Spinner’s grandfather, Chief, to help them sort things out. Chief teaches them about fishing, friendship and responsibility. In the FishingKids world, life lessons are learned and everything turns out for the best. • Before you head for the dock, make sure you’re prepared. At www. TakeMeFishing.org, you’ll find everything you need to know about planning a successful fishing trip with a child. The site is packed with

tips and tricks, as well cool tools like a marina finder and a fishing hotspot locator. Kids will enjoy the games in the Little Lunkers section. • Gear up! In addition to the chapter book series, FishingKids offers a line of action figures, toys and gear that gives children the opportunity to imagine outdoor adventures even after the boat returns to the dock. FishingKids books, toys, clothing and gear are available at www.FishingKids. com. • Be sure to check out the fishing activities in your area, too. Many communities hold Youth Fishing events and clinics. These events are often free, and young anglers may take home a bag of goodies from event sponsors. Don’t miss an opportunity to get outdoors with your grandchildren and create life long memories with them.

(StatePoint) While it’s difficult to encapsulate the moods of tens of millions of people born between 1946 and 1964, one thing has often been said about boomers -- they share a determination to stay forever young. Next to improving diet and shunning tobacco, nothing a person does increases life expectancy more than exercising, according to the National Institute on Aging. As such, many boomers are busy with their quest for immortality on the bike paths and exercise mats of America. While exercise is great for body and mind, it doesn’t come without risk. And an injury can derail a routine quickly. Here are five ways boomers can ensure they’re staying safe and having fun with exercise: • Know your limitations: Don’t increase the intensity of physical activity too quickly, especially if you have existing cardiovascular, joint or muscle problems that could be aggravated as a result. Work with a licensed trainer at first, who can assess your strength, flexibility, balance and endurance, and create a custom workout program accordingly. • Try something new: New activities can keep you moti-

vated and help you avoid overworking particular joints and muscles. Consider something totally different, such as pickleball, a fast-paced court sport combining elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis. • Take control: Whether gardening, golfing or dancing, it’s inevitable that physical activity will create occasional muscle pain, stiffness, swelling and bruising. Pain can be immobilizing and depressing, so managing it is important. “Avoid medications that mask pain coming from strained or damaged tissues,” says Jyl Steinback, author of “Superfoods: Cook Your Way to Health,” and executive director of ShapeUpUS. org. “Instead, consider a homeopathic medicine, such as Arnicare Gel, that works naturally with the body to help it heal and won’t interfere with other medications you’re taking. I bring it with me whenever I exercise.” Unscented and non-greasy, the gel is quickly absorbed by the skin. More information about natural muscle pain treatment can be found at www. Arnicare.com. • Spice rack resources: Turmeric, ginger and cayenne pepper all have antiinflammatory properties, as well as many other health benefits. Stick to your good-foryou, energy-boosting diet by giving your bland foods a lowcalorie kick with spices, roots and herbs. • Boost your metabolism: As we age, our metabolism slows down. Avoid compounding this with stress or fatty, heavy meals. To maintain a healthy weight and avoid insulin spikes or hypoglycemia, try eating small, balanced meals six times a day, rather than three big ones. Eating at the same time each day in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere speeds up digestion and makes energy more readily available. • Recharge at night: You’ll need your shut eye with your new active lifestyle. Luckily, exercise can contribute to longer, deeper sleep, helping replenish and rebuild every cell in the body. This goes beyond beauty sleep. Great sleep can aid longevity. Don’t let potential aches and pains stop you from exercising regularly. The sooner you start moving, the better you’ll look and feel. With a few tricks, you can exercise more safely and pain-free.
