‘I AM A BULLY’ signholder calls sentence unfair
SOUTH EUCLID (AP) — An Ohio man who spent hours on a street corner Sunday with a sign declaring he’s a bully says that the punishment in a disorderly conduct case was unfair and that the judge who sentenced him has ruined his life. Sixty-two-year-old Edmond Aviv mostly ignored honking horns and people who stopped by to talk with him in South Euclid, the Northeast Ohio Media Group reported. “The judge destroyed me,” Aviv said. “This isn’t fair at all.” The sentence stemmed from a neighborhood dispute in which a woman said Aviv had bullied her and her disabled children for years. Aviv pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge, and Municipal Court Judge Gayle Williams-Byers ordered him to display the sign for five hours Sunday as part of his sentence. The judge selected the wording for it: “I AM A BULLY! I pick on children that are disabled, and I am intolerant of those that are different from myself. My actions do not reflect an appreciation for the diverse South Euclid community that I live in.” Aviv arrived at the corner with the sign just before 9 a.m. Sunday. Within a couple of minutes, a passing motorist honked a car horn. Later in the morning, he was sitting in a chair holding the hand-lettered sign in front of him. Dozens of drivers honked their horns and some passers-by yelled at him. Some pedestrians took pictures. Aviv denied bullying his neighbors, but declined to answer other questions. A court probation officer monitored him, and Aviv’s attorney stopped by to check on him. The lawyer didn’t immediately return telephone calls to his office Sunday. Aviv has feuded with his neighbor Sandra Prugh for the past 15 years, court records show. The most recent case stemmed from Aviv being annoyed at the smell coming from Prugh’s dryer vent when she did laundry, according to the records. In retaliation, Aviv hooked up kerosene to a fan, which blew the smell onto Pugh’s property, the records said. Prugh has two adult adopted children with developmental disabilities, cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Her husband has dementia, and her son is paralyzed. Prugh said in a letter to the court that Aviv had called her an ethnic slur while she was holding her adopted black children, spit on her several times, regularly threw dog feces on her son’s car windshield, and once smeared feces on a wheelchair ramp. “I am very concerned for the safety of our family,” Prugh wrote in a letter to the court for Aviv’s sentencing. She said she just wants to live in peace. The judge also ordered Aviv to serve 15 days in jail and undergo anger management classes and counseling. Aviv also had to submit an apology letter to Prugh. “I want to express my sincere apology for acting irrationally towards your house and the safety of your children,” Aviv wrote. “I understand my actions could have caused harm but at that time I was not really thinking about it.”

Ohio Homeland Security releases Safer Ohio phone app nearing Boston Bombing Anniversary
Information submitted COLUMBUS – As the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing approaches it is important to emphasize the public’s critical role in solving that case. Tips from the public in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing led to the arrest in that horrific incident. To that end, today Ohio Homeland Security released the new Safer Ohio Phone App, which includes the “See Something, Send Something” feature to further engage the public in contributing to a safer Ohio. The new app is being released in time for potential use with the numerous spring and summer large-scale events across Ohio beginning this month. By using this function, the general public is able to report suspicious information or activity and send photos to Ohio Homeland Security analysts. The application is available at no cost on both Android and Apple devices. “The public’s reporting of suspicious activity is one of our best defenses against terrorist threats and our greatest resource to building resilience,” said Director John Born, Ohio Department of Public Safety. “An aware and engaged public that understands what constitutes unusual and suspicious behavior is essential to protecting our communities. And this function of the application gives citizens one more way to share this vital information.” The application provider, My Mobile Witness, uses patent-pending privacy protection software for safeguarding the integrity of tips and citizen’s personal information. The system allows law enforcement or Ohio Homeland Security analysts to engage citizens without tracking one’s location or storing personal information. Submitted tips are immediately removed from the mobile device and purged from the My Mobile Witness system once delivered to Ohio Homeland Security for analysis. A tutorial illustrating the application can be viewed at http://www. youtube.com/watch?v=qv9CZNFH Yrs&feature=youtube As always, tips can be submitted to Ohio Homeland Security at 1-877-OHS-INTEL or for emergencies, call 911.
Weather delays Statehouse Holocaust Memorial
COLUMBUS (AP) — Construction of a Holocaust memorial on the Ohio Statehouse grounds has been delayed by this year’s brutal winter weather, but is expected to be done in time for a June 2 dedication ceremony. Crews have created concrete foots at the Columbus site while two companies elsewhere work on pieces for the $2.3 million project, originally slated for completion by April, The Columbus Dispatch reported recently. Ohio’s will be among the first such memorials at U.S. Statehouses. The 18-foot-tall memorial will feature upright panels positioned to reveal a broken, six-pointed Star of David cutout. Cleveland Marble Mosaic Co. is preparing the stone memorial wall and carving inscriptions on parts of it. Meanwhile, the A. Zahner Co. in Kansas City, Mo., is fabricating bronze for the project, including an inscription on one face of it, said Amanda de Beaufort, a spokeswoman for the monument’s designer, New York artist Daniel Libeskind.
Lawmakers look to improve vicious dog law
DAYTON (AP) — Ohio lawmakers are planning to introduce bipartisan legislation aimed at strengthening the state’s vicious dog law, following the mauling death of a Dayton woman by two dogs in front of her home. Sen. Bill Beagle, a Tipp City Republican, and Rep. Roland Winburn, a Dayton Democrat, recently convened a group of county dog wardens, prosecutors, law enforcement officials and legislators to talk about how to improve the state’s current vicious dog law, signed by Gov. John Kasich two years ago. They discussed harsher penalties, how to target problem dog owners and whether to set standards for posted warnings about dangerous dogs at homes, among other topics, according to the Dayton Daily News. “We got a lot of ideas about ways we could strengthen communication, clear up the penalties and strengthen the code,” Beagle said. The action comes two months after the mauling death of Klonda Richey, 57, whose body was found outside her Dayton home on Feb. 7 several hours after she had been killed by two mixed mastiff dogs. Her

neighbors, Andrew Nason, 29, and Julie Custer, 26, owned the dogs. It is believed to be the third fatal dog attack in Montgomery County in 17 months. Before the mauling, two area agencies fielded about 60 calls and complaints related to Nason’s home between the end of 2011 and Feb. 7, records show. The Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office said the case would be presented to a grand jury. Beagle said he was surprised to learn of the course of events in the Richey case and decided with Winburn and state Rep. Jim Butler, an Oakwood Republican, to take a look at Ohio’s vicious dog law. “There’s been a lot of interest in the case,” Beagle said. “We want to make sure these things don’t happen again.” Sandusky County dog warden John Glass in northern Ohio said one problem with the law is that it requires dog owners to post signs if their pet is dangerous, but doesn’t set any standards. That means people can simply post a sign that says, “Beware of dog,” Glass said. He also said he thinks the law should have harsher penalties.

CINCINNATI — Pam Yorksmith has a 3-year-old son and is about to have a second child, but her name won’t be on either of the children’s birth certificates without a judge’s order. That’s because Yorksmith is married to a woman, and Ohio doesn’t recognize gay marriage. That could change soon if a federal judge does what he said he’d do on Monday: order Ohio to recognize the marriages of gay couples who wed in states that allow same-sex marriage. Cincinnati-based Judge Timothy Black said April 4 that he would rule on Monday that Ohio’s refusal to recognize out-ofstate gay marriages is a violation of constitutional rights and denies a fundamental right for people to marry the person of their choosing. If he does so, Black’s ruling will allow gay couples in Ohio to obtain the same benefits as any other married couple in the state, including property rights, the right to make some medical decisions for their partner and the right for each spouse to be listed as parents on their children’s birth certificates and be afforded parental rights. The ruling would not directly impact any other state but Ohio. The civil rights attorneys who filed a February lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the marriage ban did not ask Black to order the state to perform gay marriages, and Black did not say he would do so. The state plans to appeal Black’s ruling, arguing that Ohio has a sovereign right to ban gay marriage, which voters did overwhelmingly in 2004. Attorneys for the state also have said they’ll ask Black to issue a stay of his ruling to stop it from going into effect immediately as their appeal is pending. Gay marriage is legal in 17 states and Washington, D.C. Federal judges recently have struck down gay marriage bans in Michigan, Utah, Texas, Oklahoma and Virginia, though stays have been issued pending appeals. Similar to Ohio’s expected ruling, judges in Kentucky and Tennessee have ordered state officials to recognize out-ofstate gay marriages. The Kentucky decision has been stayed pending appeal, while Tennessee’s ruling applies to only three couples. Yorksmith, a 41-year-old business analyst for a Texasbased consulting firm, and her wife, Nicole Yorksmith, married in California in 2008 and have a 3-year-old son born in Cincinnati who was conceived through artificial insemination. Nicole Yorksmith, a 34-year-old human resources specialist for a Cincinnati-based company, is pregnant with their second son, due to be born in June.

With $41.4M, ‘Captain America’ holds off ‘Rio 2’
JAKE COYLE Associated Press NEW YORK — “Captain America” continued to flex its Marvel muscle at the global box office, as “The Winter Soldier” took in $41.4 million domestically and $60.6 million overseas. The strong second-week performance for the Walt Disney release in North America was enough to narrowly edge 20th Century Fox’s “Rio 2” in a springtime battle of sequels. The animated Amazon jungle tale “Rio 2” debuted with $39 million, according to studio estimates Sunday, almost exactly the opening weekend total of the 2011 Oscar-nominated original. But “Captain America” has grown considerably in stature since its 2011 original, “The First Avenger.” With a global cumulative total of nearly $477 million, “The Winter Soldier” has (in two weeks domestically, three weeks internationally) easily surpassed the $370 million total of “The First Avenger.” For a superhero whose costume is draped with the U.S. flag, Captain America (played by Chris Evans) has proven particularly popular abroad. The international appeal of such a traditionally patriot figure was once doubted. “The traditional rules just don’t apply anymore. It’s really about that Marvel brand,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. “‘Captain America’ can play in Peoria just as well as Hong Kong.” “Rio 2,” with a voice cast including Anna Kendrick and Jessie Eisenberg, also played well internationally. In its second week of release overseas, it made $62.5 million. Two other new releases opened in a distant third and fourth place. The low-budget supernatural horror film “Oculus” took in $12 million for Relativity Media. The football drama “Draft Day,” starring Kevin Costner and directed by Ivan Reitman, debuted weakly with $9.8 million. Made with the cooperation of the National Football League, the Lionsgate release is the second movie this year, along with the thriller “3 Days to Kill,” to attempt to restore the 59-year-old Costner to leading man status. The overall box office for the year is up more than 7 percent over 2013’s record box-office haul. The month of April has been propelled especially by the summer-style release of “The Winter Soldier” and a number of less likely successes. With $39.5 million domestically, the Wes Anderson caper “The Grand Budapest Hotel” has performed exceptionally in a gradual release by Fox Searchlight. The independently released Christian film “God’s Not Dead,” from Freestyle Releasing, has made a whopping $40.7 million in four weeks. Just holding in the top five was Lionsgate’s teen sci-fi franchise-starter “Divergent,” which added $7.5 million in its fourth week to bring its cumulative total to $124.9 million. Lionsgate announced Friday that the third installment in the series (a sequel for 2015 is already in the works) will be split into two releases. The final book in Veronica Roth’s young-adult trilogy, “Allegiant,” will be made into two installments, one to open in March 2016, the other in March 2017. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released today. 1.”Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” $41.4 million ($60.6 million international). 2.”Rio 2,” $39 million ($62.3 million international). 3.”Oculus,” $12 million ($1.3 million international). 4.”Draft Day,” $9.8 million. 5.”Divergent,” $7.5 million ($23.2 million international). 6.”Noah,” $7.5 million ($36.2 million international). 7.”God’s Not Dead,” $5.5 million. 8.”The Grand Budapest Hotel,” $4.1 million ($7.2 million international). 9.”Muppets Most Wanted,” $2.2 million ($2.2 million international). 10.”Mr. Peabody and Sherman,” $1.8 million ($3.8 million international). ___ Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at international theaters (excluding the U.S. and Canada) for films distributed overseas by Hollywood studios, according to Rentrak: 1. “Rio 2,” $62.3 million. 2. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” $60.6 million. 3. “Noah,” $36.2 million. 4. “Divergent,” $23.2 million. 5. “The Lego Movie,” $9.5 million. 6. “Frozen,” $8 million. 7. “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” $7.2 million. 8. “Ocho apellidos vascos,” $5.4 million. 9. “Mr. Peabody and Sherman,” $3.8 million. 10.

O’Brien: Colbert ‘right person’ to do ‘Late Show’
DERRIK J. LANG Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Don’t feel bad for Conan O’Brien. Again. The 50-year-old talk show host said he was never a contender to take over CBS’ the “Late Show” when David Letterman announced his retirement last week. The funnyman, who has hosted his talk show “Conan” on TBS since 2010, said he believes Stephen Colbert is the “right person” to take over the show from Letterman. “I wasn’t up for it,” O’Brien said backstage Friday during a break from rehearsing for Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, which he’s hosting for the first time. “I’m very happy where I am, but I love Stephen. I think Stephen is great. I’m a huge fan of his as a comic and as a human being. I think it’s fantastic. I’m really glad that he got the job. I look forward to seeing his show.” O’Brien originally succeeded Letterman on NBC’s “Late Night” in 1993 when Letterman moved to CBS to headline the “Late Show.” O’Brien infamously replaced Jay Leno as host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show” for a mere seven months beginning in 2009 before Leno was reinstated as host in 2010. “I was very happy because I have such respect for Dave,” O’Brien said. “I’m glad that it’s the right person getting it.” O’Brien, who has appeared as a guest on Letterman’s show, said he’s excited to see the “Colbert Report” host tackle the “Late Show,” but he definitely didn’t apply for the gig. “Whenever I would hear there was speculation (that I’d take over the ‘Late Show’), I was like, ‘No. What?’ I’m happy,” said O’Brien, whose TBS talk show has been renewed through November 2015. “I get to do what I want.”

Outkast reunited onstage after a near decadelong hiatus with a jam-packed set at the Coachella music festival, their first of many performances planned this year. The rap duo headlined the first night of the music festival Friday in Indio, Calif., performing well-known hits such as “Hey Ya!,” ”Ms. Jackson,” ”The Way You Move,” ”Elevators (Me & You),” and “So Fresh, So Clean.” The Grammy winners performed two dozen tracks — seen via its livestream on YouTube — as they celebrated 20 years in music since the release of their 1994 debut, “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.” “Hey Coachella, are y’all alive?” Andre 3000 asked the crowd at the top of their set. “Are y’all alive? Are y’all alive?” “I really appreciate y’all coming out,” he said at the end of the performance, more than 90 minutes later. “I know it’s kind of weird 20 years later.” Outkast worked the stage as they performed their rap anthems, and at times, they performed around a small table with two chairs, an ode to their earlier years where they would write songs in Big Boi’s aunt’s kitchen in Atlanta and recite their lyrics in circles. “We just want to know one thing — are you having a good time?” Big Boi asked the crowd.
They crowd seemed energetic — especially across social media — but that was hard to hear at times through the livestream. Outkast also seemed to check-in with the audience throughout the set, asking, “Ya’ll still with us” or “Y’all still here?” The rappers kicked off the set with songs like “B.O.B,” ”ATLiens” and “Rosa Parks,” and then they split up to perform solo music. Big Boi was joined by his mentee, singer Janelle Monae, when she danced during “Tightrope.” He performed “Kryptonite (I’m On It)” and Shutterbugg,” among other jams. Andre 3000 was cool during performances of “Prototype” and “She Lives In My Lap,” even though he said one of his icons was in attendance. “I’ma tell y’all a secret. One of my idols is backstage. Prince is right there. No joke,” he said. Then he added: “Do we have any lovers in the house tonight? I know we got some haters. Y’all stand out real strong.” Outkast’s performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival marks the duo’s reunion since releasing their last album, 2006’s “Idlewild.” That came three years after the epic “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below,” which sold more than 10 million albums and is one of two hip-hop records to win the Grammy for album of the year. The duo will also headline New York’s Governors Ball festival in June and Lollapalooza in Chicago in August, among other festivals. They will play more than 40 shows.

Bath sweeps Jefferson in baseball twin-bill Track and Field Results
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer email@example.com BATH TOWNSHIP — Jefferson’s baseball team faced two different style of pitchers Saturday afternoon in a twin-bill at Bath High School. The result was the same: two losses. Bath rode the 1-hit shutout of 6-6 right-hander Taren Sullivan in game 1 to a 10-0 5-inning triumph. In the nightcap, southpaw Eric Jordan twirled a 6-hitter as the hosts grabbed a 6-1 triumph. In the opener, freshman Jace Stockwell had the only hit for the visiting Wildcats against Sullivan (5 innings pitched, 2 bases-on-balls, 9 strikeouts, 1 hit batter). He, along with Nick Fitch, earned free passes and Austin Jettinghoff was hit by a pitch.

Heisey hits slam, Mesoraco Ramirez hits 2-run HR in 4 RBIs as Reds top Rays 9th, Chisox top Indians
By JOE KAY Associated Press CINCINNATI — The Reds went two weeks before breaking out of their hitting slump. Chris Heisey connected for his first grand slam and Devin Mesoraco homered and drove in a career high-tying four runs as Cincinnati took advantage of Tampa Bay’s depleted pitching staff for a 12-4 victory on Sunday. The Reds’ best offensive showing of the season featured Mesoraco’s 3-run homer, Joey Votto’s 2-run shot and Heisey’s pinch-hit slam in the eighth. Jay Bruce doubled, walked four times and scored four runs. The Reds had a brief meeting following a 1-0 loss on Saturday that epitomized their season-long struggle at the plate. “The key early in the season is to not lose faith,” manager Bryan Price said. “We understand that we’re a good team and everyone in there knows For the first time all season, they played like it. The Reds salvaged the final game of their interleague series but remained in last place in the NL Central at 4-8. The hitters have been the biggest problem, tied for last in the majors heading into the game. Zack Cozart got it going with a bases-loaded double off Cesar Ramos (0-1), making his first start of the season because of injuries. The Reds finished with a season high in runs — they hadn’t scored more than six in any previous game — and hits with 13. “It’s so early that you really can’t say we’re not going to hit with runners in scoring position,” Mesoraco said. “We’ve just got to bear down and try not to do too much.” Left-hander Tony Cingrani (1-1) gave up five hits in 6 1/3 innings. Ben Zobrist homered from both sides of the it.” plate, hitting 2-run shots off Cingrani and right-hander Nick Christiani. “It was great to see them come through and break out and get five runs (early),” Cingrani said. “It was just a matter of time. We’ve got a great hitting lineup. Today was the day they broke out of it.” The Rays are 3-3 on a trip that has been tough on their rotation. Matt Moore went on the disabled list with a sore elbow on Tuesday and Alex Cobb joined him Sunday with a strained oblique. Also, reliever Joel Peralta was sick, leaving him unavailable. The injuries affected the final game of the series. Ramos, who had made four relief appearances this season, started in Moore’s place and helped the Reds’ offense get unstuck. “One of those days, man,” manager Joe Maddon said. “You just file it and move on. See REDS, page 8 By ROBERT QUESENBERY Associated Press CHICAGO — Alexei Ramirez hit a 2-run homer off John Axford in the ninth inning, rallying the Chicago White Sox over the Cleveland Indians 4-3 on a rainy Sunday. The Indians scored twice in the top of the ninth, getting the goahead run on a wild pitch by closer Matt Lindstrom. Axford (0-1) came in seeking his fifth save in as many chances. He issued a leadoff walk to Jordan Danks, who stole second. One out later, Ramirez homered over the left-field fence. The White Sox won a series against Cleveland for the first time since October 2012. Chicago took three out of four in this set. The game was delayed 1 hour, 15 minutes at the start by the threat of rain. There was another 45-minute delay in the fourth. Cleveland trailed 2-1 going into the ninth. Michael Brantley reached on first base Jose Abreu’s error and singles by Yan Gomes and David Murphy tied it.
See RESULTS, page 8
With two outs, Lindstrom (1-1) threw a wild pitch that put the Indians ahead. Marcus Semien hit a solo home run in the eighth to give Chicago a 2-1 lead. He sent a full-count pitch from Indians starter Corey Kluber into the seats in right field. NOTES: White Sox manager Robin Ventura says OF Avisail Garcia will have season-ending shoulder surgery on Tuesday. He was injured Wednesday at Colorado on a diving-catch attempt. … Chicago 2B Gordon Beckham (strained left oblique) was cleared to resume his rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham. … Chicago is off today before concluding its 7-game homestand with three games against the Boston Red Sox beginning Tuesday.

I don’t have the words, it just feels great.” Ortiz finished at 13-under 275 and earned $126,000 to jump from second to first on the money list with $304,458 — well over the amount needed to earn a PGA Tour spot next season as a top-25 finisher. He would earn an immediate PGA Tour promotion with another victory. “I just stay patient, trust my game plan and just let it flow,” Ortiz explained.
Wilson Kipsang wins his Roundup 2nd London Marathon
By ROB HARRIS Associated Press LONDON — The last of the elite runners to arrive in London but the first over the line, Wilson Kipsang’s week of travel chaos had no impact on his marathon running. The world record-holder saw off a strong field to capture his second London title by breaking the course record on Sunday. Kipsang completed the 26.2mile (42.2-kilometer) route in 2 hours, 4 minutes, 29 seconds — 11 seconds inside the previous fastest run in London by Emmanuel Mutai in 2011 — at the end of a week that began with his passport and visa being stolen from a car at his training base in Kenya. Although he had a spare passport, Kipsang had to travel from the town of Iten to the capital Nairobi to obtain a replaceKipsang ment visa before arriving two days late in London on Thursday. Little, though, was holding back the 32-year-old Kipsang on Sunday, when he pulled away from fellow Kenyan Stanley Biwott in the final two miles. “The pacemakers went too early for me so I had to push myself,” said Kipsang, who also won the 2012 race. “At around 31km (19 miles) it was then I decided to push harder and I felt very comfortable and strong. And then I pushed again towards the finish line and that was when I broke away.” Biwott finished 26 seconds behind Kipsang, and deposed London champion Tsegaye Kebede was more than two minutes behind Kipsang in third. “When Wilson pushed away, I just didn’t have it in my legs to keep up with him for the final meters,” Biwott said. But despite the sunshine bathing London, the home crowd was left disappointed by the full marathon debut of Mo Farah, who finished eighth, almost four minutes behind Kipsang. But despite failing to match his track feats in the city in 2012, when he won the 5,000 and 10,000-meter titles at the Olympics, Farah will return for another shot at the marathon. “I’m not going to finish it like this,” Farah said. “I’ll be back. It’s a matter of experience and learning.” There was a Kenyan one-two too in the women’s race, which ended in a sprint finish in front of Buckingham Palace. Two-time world champion Edna Kiplagat won at her fourth attempt in London, completing the course in 2:20:21 — 3 seconds ahead of namesake, Florence Kiplagat. “Towards the end of the race I tried to push a few times but she was always there,” Edna Kiplagat said of her rival. “I felt very strong so I wasn’t too worried.” In the women’s wheelchair race, Tatyana McFadden swapped the slopes for the streets as she successfully defended her London title with a dominant performance, winning in a course record time of 1:45:11. Her win came a month after the 24-year-old American collected her first Winter Paralympics medal — silver in cross-country skiing in Sochi. “I was not in my chair for three weeks,” McFadden said. “It was a tough race, but I stayed calm and relaxed, and I tried to use the downhills as much as I could.” David Weir was denied a record seventh title in the men’s wheelchair race as Marcel Hug of Switzerland edged out the Briton.

Conway, who also won at Long Beach in 2011, scored the win for Ed Carpenter Racing, a team that specializes in oval races. But Carpenter decided this year to get out of the car on road and street courses and handed the wheel over to Conway, a driver who at the end of 2012 decided he no longer wanted to race on ovals. “I can’t believe it. I can’t believe I’m actually here,” Conway said in Victory Lane. “I wasn’t sure Scott was going to pull in there. I couldn’t see he was saving fuel where he should have been saving. Second would have been good, but this is awesome.” Dixon said he pitted when he did to avoid potentially running out of gas on the track. “The last thing I wanted to do was run out of gas in front of the whole field and cause a big accident,” Dixon explained. One big accident had already occurred — when Hunter-Reay picked the wrong time to try to pass Newgarden. Newgarden had raced off of pit road in a successful bid to get back onto the track in front of Hunter-Reay and Hinchcliffe, the two Andretti drivers who had started on the front row. But on cold tires, he wasn’t going to be able to hold off Hunter-Reay for long. Only Hunter-Reay decided not to wait and tried to pass Newgarden as they entered a tight Turn 4. The two cars collided, Newgarden was sent into the wall and Hunter-Reay bounced into Helio Castroneves’ path. Hinchcliffe ran into the back of Newgarden — Will Power and Conway successfully squeezed through the wreckage — but three more cars were collected as Takuma Sato, Tony Kanaan and Jack Hawksworth all ran into the crashed cars long after the accident began. Newgarden was polite when he returned to his pit stand. “I was on cold tires, it’s very hard to control the car, I knew Hunter-Reay was on hot and at some point he was probably going to get me,” Newgarden said. “But I didn’t expect anyone to come up on the inside of four. There’s so little room there, you normally can’t make a pass, even if something like that is going on … the next thing I knew I was in the wall and I was just getting plowed into by everyone. “That shouldn’t happen up front. It really shouldn’t. You shouldn’t have incidents like that when you are running up front.” Team owner Fisher was composed when asked about the incident on television but let her true feelings be known on Twitter shortly after: “It was our race to win and we got robbed by immaturity. Period,” she posted. Andretti seemed shell-shocked at two of his cars being wrecked — “you need to be a little more patient,” he said — and Hinchcliffe didn’t mince words for his teammate. “At the end of the day, patience is a virtue and someone wasn’t very virtuous day. It was a rookie move,” said Hinchcliffe, who suffered a sprained left thumb and will need to be re-examined before he’s cleared to drive again.

This is less than the 30-minute rule. This is the 30-second rule. Just drop it and move on.” Cincinnati came into the game tied with San Diego for fewest runs in the majors with 28. Ramos helped the Reds by walking the bases loaded in the second and Cozart hit a ground-rule double for his third hit of the season and a 2-0 lead. Votto’s second homer of the series sparked a 10-bat-
ter, 5-run third inning. Ramos left after throwing 47 pitches. Brandon Gomes relieved and gave up Mesoraco’s homer. Mesoraco added a sacrifice fly in the fifth. The catcher opened the season on the disabled list with a strained oblique. In four games the past week, he went 7-for-14 with three doubles, two homers and six RBIs. Heisey connected in the eighth off Josh Lueke for his seventh career pinch-hit homer.
NOTES: The Rays open a 3-game series in Baltimore today, starting Chris Archer (1-0) against Wei-Yin Chen (1-1). … The Reds continue their 6-game homestand by hosting Pittsburgh. Homer Bailey (0-1), who has won his last five starts against the Pirates, goes against Wandy Rodriguez (0-2). … Rays called up LH reliever Jeff Beliveau from Triple-A Durham to fill Cobb’s roster spot and sent him back after the game. LH Erik Bedard,
who also was added to the roster on Sunday, will take Cobb’s spot in the rotation for now. … It was Zobrist’s fourth career multi-homer game. … Maddon batted Ramos eighth, figuring that he’d have to pinch-hit for him early anyway. … Reds starter Mat Latos was diagnosed with a sprained right forearm. He won’t throw for 10-14 days. … Third base umpire Tim Welke was honored before he worked his 4,000th regular-season game.

Bath scored its first tally in the home third on a leadoff walk to Heffner, an error on a Gossard ground ball, an error on a pickoff try and an RBI groundout by Jordan. It could have been another run but an alert play by catcher Fitch got Gossard at home trying to score on a pitch in the dirt. Delphos scored its lone run in the fourth on consecutive opening hits by Jettinghoff (single to center), Binkley (infield hit up the middle) and Gage Mercer (bloop to right center). Herron bounced to short to start a 6-4-3 twinkilling that plated Jettinghoff for a 1-1 tie. Bath took the lead for good — 4-1 — in the home half on a walk, hit batter, a sacrifice (Dylan Burkholder) and three hits. The big blow was a 2-run bloop double to right center by Best (Wise, McGue) that eluded diving centerfielder Teman and Heffner knocked in another (Best) on a bad-hop single that handcuffed third baseman Thompson. Delphos tried to rally in the sixth on a 2-out Binkley grounder that was misplayed but he remained on first. Bath tacked on its final two tallies in the home sixth, using two errors (one that scored Best) and three hits, including a run-scoring 2-baser by Gossard (Heffner).
Jefferson again tried to answer in the top of the seventh. With two gone, Ryan Bullinger walked and a bloop down the right-field line by Stockwell put runners on the corners. However, Jordan got the final out to end the second game. “We did not play very well defensively today,” Geary added. “Even when we weren’t committing errors, we were making fundamental mental mistakes that cost us. We cannot afford to give any team extra puts, let alone strong programs like Bath. However, we kept playing and kept a positive attitude. We have a lot of room to improve but the attitude helps.” Jefferson hosts Lincolnview today.

Chances of getting audited by IRS lowest in years
STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press WASHINGTON — As millions of Americans race to meet Tuesday’s tax deadline, their chances of getting audited are lower than they have been in years. Budget cuts and new responsibilities are straining the Internal Revenue Service’s ability to police tax returns. This year, the IRS will have fewer agents auditing returns than at any time since at least the 1980s. Taxpayer services are suffering, too, with millions of phone calls to the IRS going unanswered. “We keep going after the people who look like the worst of the bad guys,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in an interview. “But there are going to be some people that we should catch, either in terms of collecting the revenue from them or prosecuting them, that we’re not going to catch.” Better technology is helping to offset some budget cuts. If you report making $40,000 in wages and your employer tells the IRS you made $50,000, the agency’s computers probably will catch that. The same is true for investment income and many common deductions that are reported to the IRS by financial institutions. But if you operate a business that deals in cash, with income or expenses that are not independently reported to the IRS, your chances of getting caught are lower than they have been in years. Last year, the IRS audited less than 1 percent of all returns from individuals, the lowest rate since 2005. This year, Koskinen said, “The numbers will go down.” Koskinen was confirmed as IRS commissioner in December. He took over an agency under siege on several fronts. Last year, the IRS acknowledged agents improperly singled out conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status from 2010 to 2012. The revelation has led to five ongoing investigations, including three by congressional committees, and outraged lawmakers who control the agency’s budget. The IRS also is implementing large parts of President Barack Obama’s health law, including enforcing the mandate that most people get health insurance. Republicans in Congress abhor the law, putting another bull’s-eye on the agency’s back. The animosity is reflected in the IRS budget, which has declined from $12.1 billion in 2010 to $11.3 billion in the current budget year.

3 dead after suburban Kansas City shooting
MARIA SUDEKUM Associated Press OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — A man in his 70s opened fire Sunday outside of a Jewish community center and nearby retirement community, killing three people, authorities said. Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass said at a news conference Sunday evening that a person who had been reported to be in critical condition earlier was among three killed in the attacks, which apparently occurred minutes apart. “Today is a sad and very tragic day,” Douglass said. “As you might imagine we are only three hours into this investigation. There’s a lot of innuendo and a lot of assertions going around. There is really very little hardcore information.” Shots were fired behind the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in a parking lot about 1 p.m., Douglass said. One male died at the scene, another male died at a hospital. The gunman then fled and opened fire at nearby Village Shalom, killing a female, before later being arrested near an elementary school. Two other people were shot at, but the gunfire missed them, Douglass said. Douglass said it was too early in the investigation to determine if the shootings were hate crimes. The Jewish festival of Passover begins today.
Legal minds eye quality control for convictions
JENNIFER PELTZ Associated Press NEW YORK — Hospitals have staff conferences to examine why patients died. Airline pilots have a system for voluntarily submitting information on safety concerns. Yet the life-and-death world of criminal justice often operates without a similar mechanism for probing its most feared failures: wrongful convictions. Some legal thinkers say it’s time for a criminal-justice version of quality control: frank scrutiny of cases gone wrong to identify potential weaknesses in the justice system and keep errors from happening again. “Every time you’ve got a mistake, you’ve got all those phases in the system that failed to pick it up,” says John Hollway, the executive director of the University of Pennsylvania Law School’s Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice. District attorneys, defense lawyers, police officials and law professors traded thoughts there last week with some uncommon counterparts: doctors, a National Transportation Safety Board member, a NASA official and an expert on research-lab safety. The gathering crystallized discussions that have percolated in recent years, as DNA has exonerated hundreds of people and raised broader concerns about false convictions — concerns echoed with this week’s exoneration of a New York man imprisoned for nearly a quarter-century in a murder case. A few cities are testing out problem-solving reviews of cases gone wrong. Backers of such reviews say they can only work if people feel free to speak up about mistakes with a goal of fixing problems, not assessing blame. But that may be difficult in the inherently adversarial realm of crime and punishment. “There’s a withholding of information and a defensiveness that prevents us from getting to root causes of problems,” says Jeffrey Deskovic, a reform advocate who has felt the toll of those problems firsthand. He spent 16 years in prison in a suburban New York high school classmate’s 1989 death. He lost appeals but was exonerated in 2006, after DNA linked the slaying to another man who had been convicted of killing someone else in the meantime. Jurors had known that DNA evidence didn’t point to Deskovic, but they were apparently convinced by a confession he said was coerced by 7 ½ hours of interrogation when he was 16 years old.

This astronomical event kicks off a lunar eclipse tetrad (group of four in a row), which is a rare occurrence. A total of three total lunar eclipses will appear over the Western Hemisphere every six months; one on Oct. 8 this year and April 4 and Sept. 28 in 2015. The last tetrad series happened in the years 2003 and 2004 and will only occur seven more times in the current century. The eclipse will last over three and a half hours starting at 12:58 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), when the moon begins to plunge into the umbra, the darkest center of the Earth’s shadow. The best part of eclipse will be during totality, starting at 3:07 a.m. EDT and lasting 78 minutes. After that, Earth’s shadow begins to leave the surface of the moon. Dennis “Mooch” King During this eclipse, refracted sunlight shines through the ring of Earth’s dusty and cloudy atmosphere and casts the red part of the spectrum onto the moon’s surface. This results in transforming the dark gray color of the moon during the partial phase of the eclipse to a reddish-orange or copper color during totality. The same effect occurs when the sun turns red at sunset. The moon’s color during totality can vary depending on the amount of dust in the Earth’s atmosphere. For example, if there are active volcanic eruptions emitting tons of ash into the upper atmosphere, it can trigger blood-red eclipses. Lunar eclipses occur only when there is a full moon and the sun, Earth and moon are aligned perfectly for email@example.com. the Earth’s shadow to turn out the lunar lights. During a full lunar eclipse, the moon passes behind the Earth which blocks the sun’s rays from striking the moon. Because of the moon’s tilted orbit around the Earth, eclipses don’t occur every month; instead, it usually happens once every few years. Occasionally, there are more than one in a year. Unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are safely visible to the naked eye. Lunar eclipses are not always seen in the skies over heavily populated cities and towns, which makes Tuesday’s event very special for skywatchers. Observers will also see Spica — the bright star in the constellation Virgo — which will appear very close to the moon during the eclipse and the orange-hued Mars, which will be shining bright off to the west.

Antiviral medicines help ease shingles pain
known as herpes zoster or just zoster, is caused by the varicella-zoster virus. It is the same virus that causes chickenpox. Once you have had chickenpox, the varicella-zoster virus remains in your body’s nerve tissues. It is inactive, but it can be reactivated later in life. This causes shingles. When the virus reactivates, it causes a burning or tingling sensation in the affected areas. A few days later, the virus causes a blistery rash. (I’ve put an illustration of this process on my website, AskDoctorK.com.) Your affected skin may be so painful and sensitive that you cannot even stand having your clothing touching the area. One patient of mine with shingles on his forearm switched for several weeks to wearing a shortsleeved shirt to the office, something he never had worn to work before. If you’re over age 50 and have had shingles pain for less than three days, the current recommendations call for doctors to prescribe antiviral medicine to kill the virus that causes shingles. (If you are younger than 50 and very uncomfortable from shingles that began in the last three days, your doctor may still prescribe antiviral therapy.) The two medicines recommended most often are famciclovir (Famvir) and valacyclovir (Valtrex). These

How long do you think you’d continue to buy this newspaper if every single story on every single page for the last three weeks was about a missing airplane? Or a hurricane? Or a baby down a well? Or any other single topic? No sports, no weddings, no obits, no financial news? Doesn’t the word “news,” by definition, mean that what you’re reading or seeing is something new? Why does this only apply to newspapers, and not TV? How does TV get away with this? Why is the shelf-life of a story so long on television, but so short in print? It’s not that there’s been anything factually wrong with the missing Malaysian Flight 370

story (and if there were, how would we know?). It’s that the coverage is so out of proportion to everything else that’s going on in the world that you have to wonder: Why is it being so over-hyped? Some will say “It’s obvious: CNN’s ratings have gone through the roof.” No, they haven’t. CNN’s ratings have gone from the toilet to the shower stall. They’re a long way from the front door. It’s like saying “Our ratings are up 50 percent!” But 50 percent of next-tonothing is still nextto-nothing plus half of next-to-nothing. It’s not something to brag about. My personal theory is that CNN hijacked the plane to boost their ratings and save them money at the same time. They save money by just running a tape of everything they said yesterday and playing it over and over. Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper have probably been on vacation in Brazil for the last three weeks, hoping no one

antiviral medications not only help shorten the days of pain that you have, they also help reduce the risk of long-lasting shingles pain, a condition called post-herpetic neuralgia. The pain that accompanies shingles can be intense. If the antiviral medicine does not provide enough relief, you can take additional pain medicines. Start with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acetaminophen. If necessary, your doctor will prescribe more potent pain medicines; these include codeine, tramadol and (when the pain is very severe) oxycodone. Some studies led doctors to add corticosteroid drugs such as prednisone to the treatment of shingles. However, as more studies of this treatment have been completed, it looks as though these medicines may offer more risks than benefits. You should also gently rinse your skin rash and blisters once or twice daily with cool water. Your doctor may suggest that you use antibiotic ointment on open areas. Shingles usually takes seven to
However, a small number of people develop post-herpetic neuralgia and continue to have pain for many months, or even years. Different medications from those used during the attack of shingles are effective. These include tricyclic drugs, gabapentin and pregabalin. These drugs alter the way your central nervous system perceives pain signals. If the pain is severe, then the more potent drugs used for the pain of shingles may also be helpful. These include oxycodone, morphine and methadone. Other treatments for post-herpetic neuralgia being evaluated, but as yet unproven, include capsaicin, topical lidocaine and acupuncture. A shingles vaccine is recommended for most adults age 60 and older. Even though treatment is effective, nothing beats preventing the condition in the first place.

will notice that they say the same thing day after day. And I can say that with authority because I know nothing about airplanes and little about television news. I don’t even understand how planes stay up in the air. It doesn’t make any sense. When you see how much the plane weighs, and then you see all those people get on with their carry-on luggage that weighs as much they do and then you look at the giant ball of cholesterol sitting next to you -- you have to think to yourself, “There is no way that this thing is ever even going to leave the ground.”
Which is why I wonder that I haven’t been asked to be on TV and talk about Malaysian Flight 370. As I am eminently unqualified to address the matter, I wonder why my phone isn’t ringing off the hook with offers to spout the first thing that comes into my brain about it, the way most TV guests do. This would be another thing that TV gets away with that newspapers can’t: fake experts. On TV, they don’t even say their guests are experts -- after all, why would this guy be on TV if he wasn’t an expert? He’s with the Policy Center for the Future, or the Association of Associated Associates, what more do you want? One day I was watching one of the financial channels, trying to figure out where I would lose money next, and Warren Buffett -- the most successful stock picker in the world -- was the guest. Few people know more about investing than Buffett, the Oracle
of Omaha, and he generously shared his time and advice with the public. Their very next guest was a guy that owns a pawn shop in Las Vegas that is featured on reality TV. They gave him equal time with Buffett. The pawn shop fellow is a fun guy and an expert on running a pawn shop, and I can’t blame him for being on -it’s good publicity -- but exactly what bit of wisdom were investors to take away from his appearance? Flight 370 is not something to joke about or make fun of; there is real pain and sorrow there. But 115 people die in car accidents every day in the U.S. That’s a Flight 370 every three days. Why is that not a news story for the last three weeks? On whose value system are some lives more newsworthy than others? ( C o n t a c t Jim Mullen at JimMullenBooks. com.)

TUESDAY, APRIL 15, 2014 You will have to strike a balance between your business aspirations and your personal relationships. If you chase your financial goals too strenuously, you could alienate the person who means the most to you. Treat both with equal importance. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Use common sense if you are going to mix business with pleasure. Your work prospects may be damaged if you are indiscreet.

Dear Friends, Everyone likes to receive an invitation. Whether they come over a phone, text, through the mail, or email, we all like to be invited to special events. I AM INVITING YOU to multiple special events in the days ahead! Lent is done and it’s time to celebrate! YOU ARE INVITED to the Holy Week liturgies! The movie Son of God recently tried to capture the last days of Jesus’ earthly life, suffering, death and resurrection. The liturgies in the coming days, I promise you, are better than the movie for your body, soul and heart. I look forward to celebrating what God has done for us with you! Pax, Fr Dave

Answers to Saturday’s questions: Thomas Jefferson, in 1801, hosted the first public July 4th celebration at the executive mansion in Washington, D.C. when it was called the President’s house. Jefferson, the second president to live in the building that is now known as the White House, invited local citizens along with diplomats, government officials, military officers and some Cherokee chiefs. The name of the bird with the multicolored beak pictured on Froot Loops cereal boxes is Toucan Sam. Today’s questions: In the world of scientific research, what does the term painting the mice indicate? What unique reason did Singapore officials give for slapping an NC-17 rating — no children under 17 — on a 2002 satirical comedy entitled Talking Cock: The Movie? Answers in Wednesday’s Herald.
Wed., April 16...7:30 p.m.
Come to this unforgettable Evening Prayer. Twelve candles will be extinguished, representing the apostles abandoning Our Lord. At the end of the psalms, songs and readings, you will hear the Strepitus. The sound reverberates like the earthquake at the tomb of Jesus. Though he suffers greatly, Jesus will rise again.
Fri.., April 18...1:45 & 7:30 p.m.
This is the only day of the year when a Mass is not permitted. Services at 1:45 and 7:30 include the Passion of St. John, collection for the Holy Land, Veneration of the Cross and Holy Communion. In commemoration of the three hours Jesus hung on the cross we begin with Stations of the Cross at 12 Noon presented by the 5th grade. High School students will present song and reflection on the Passion after that. At 1:45 the priest and assembly will begin the traditional service in silence. The readings of prophecy and reflection of Christ’s sufferings will bring us to the account of the Passion as St. John writes it. We are invited: “ Could you not watch with me?”
Maundy Thursday – 7 PM worship Good Friday – 7 PM worship Easter Services – 7:30 AM / 10 AM Easter Breakfast – 8:30 / Egg Hunt at 9:00
Thur., April 17 ... 7:30 p.m.
This liturgy begins the Sacred Three Days. These three days have three services that are really one liturgy in three parts. The introductory rites begin the Mass on Holy Thursday. The service ends at the Easter Vigil. While Holy Thursday celebrates the institution of the Eucharist, it also reminds us that we must do some service to live the Gospel. Our reminder is the ritual of foot washing. At the end of Mass the altar is stripped and the Blessed Sacrament is presented for adoration. The church will be open until 10 PM.
Sat. April 19...8:00 p.m.
LET US CELEBRATE OUR GREAT TESTIMONY TO THE RISEN CHRIST – AND THE BAPTISM AND PROFESSION OF FAITH OF THOSE ENTERING OUR CHURCH. THEY ARE THE NEWEST DISCIPLES OF CHRIST RISING FROM THE DEAD. WE JOIN THEM IN BEING BORN AGAIN INTO THIS EASTER SEASON. COME JOYFULLY TO THE FEAST.
