We will always remember

A LARGE CROWD was on hand for the annual Memorial Day program at the Daviess County Courthouse on Monday.

Good crowd remembers,


honors fallen soldiers

TIMES HERALD

The plaza in front of the Daviess County


Courthouse was filled with people remembering
the nations war dead on this Memorial Day.
About 200 people attended the event that was
filled with patriotic messages, prayers and poetry.
Organizers say they were pleased with the
event.
Very pleased with the turnout, said Commander for American Legion Post 121 in Washington Kelly Hamm. Our fallen comrades are
not forgotten and we will always remember.
One thing that was different this year was the
inclusion of more young people in the Memorial
Day ceremony.
I think its very important to keep the youth
involved. That is our future and that was our
plan for the ceremony, said Hamm. I want to
give special thanks to the Gill Funeral Home for
establishing the essay contest; well done.
The Gill essay contest was open to high school
students to write an essay about the meaning of

Memorial Day. Honorable Mention went to


Katherine Matthews. Third place was Alex
Lamb. Second place went to Jeremiah Kirsch,
and first place was Nichole Manis. Manis received a certificate and a $500 cash prize.
The essays we received were very well written, said Megan Pride with Gill Funeral Home.
They were well researched and many of the
students have been touched by personal losses.
While Memorial Day is often known as the
start of summer, the weekend for racing and the
traditional opening for the area pools, speakers
at the courthouse event kept the focus on soldiers who have fallen for the nation.
Without the sacrifices of those men and
women, we would not be here, said Washington
Mayor Joe Wellman in his remarks.
Our freedoms would not be ensured. We
would be less safe and our way of life would be
threatened. Because of those sacrifices, I and
many others I know, take our positions as
elected officials seriously, and I am humbled to
think about all the sacrifices of those who have
gone before us. They have paid the ultimate
price so that we may live in liberty. Our freedom

WASHINGTON TIMES HERALD

Purdue center, Amish dog breeders work to create standards


LAFAYETTE, Ind. A Purdue University center and
commercial dog breeders
from southern Indianas
Amish community are working to create standards meant
to improve dogs well-being.
A breeder from the Odon
says he and others want to
change the image that theyre
raising unhappy and mistreated dogs.
It was time that we as
breeders recognize that there
are professionals out there
that can help us and we need
to involve them in our businesses, Levi Graber, who is

part of the Daviess County


Amish community and helps
several breeders, told the (Lafayette) Journal & Courier.
Graber contacted Purdue a
few years ago looking for input on meeting the expectations of consumers.
The pilot program at Purdues Center for Animal Welfare Science reviews how facilities are operated and
whether dogs health can be
made better through certain
changes.
Center director Candace
Croney said the program,
which has both Amish and

non-Amish breeders, will be


used to come up with voluntary management and care
standards. Eventually, she
said, there will eventually be
a national program for breeders.
Croneys team monitored
aspects about the dogs such
as their friendliness, body
conditions and housing. They
were for the most part in
good health physically, she
said, and their behavior had
the most room to be improved. Dogs at some facilities were loud and many got
overexcited at the sight of

people, which Croney said indicated the dogs werent accustomed to often seeing people.
Breeders were advised by
the team to ensure that each
time someone goes into the
kennel area, theres something positive for dogs, such
as a treat. The team also suggested letting dogs into a yard
daily to socialize and exercise.
Croney said a big impact
was made by the little
changes. Dogs with the most
issues with behavior got
calmer at the sight of people
and looked better physically

over four months.


Weve seen a very positive
impact on some of the things
she recommends, Graber
said. Ive seen more contented, happy dogs.
Practices of breeders will be
audited by a third party when
the tr ial program ends,
Croney said. If everything
goes well, a certification will
be given to breeders that
Croney said goes beyond the
U.S. Department of Agricultures mandated standards.

Generating leads with


online website surveys
inding a cost-effective,
and efficient method of
generating leads is
always at the top of
marketers lists. Surveys are
a great way to interact with
your target consumer base
and gauge your brands
marketability based on its
reception by the public. If
you keep them simple,
surveys can be a great way
to learn and even grow
leads at the same time.
Waftio.com is a convenient
lead generation add-on tool
for websites that comes with
a built-in function that allows you to easily create
your own embedded survey
app to give to your website
visitors.

WHAT TO USE
A SURVEY FOR

Use a survey to connect


with your viewers and get
answers from your clients
and prospective clients on
their perspective or experience. Heres a few tips on
surveys.
Ask open ended questions
to get opinions on products,
from additional colors and
sizes to additional features.
Find out what your customers want you to teach
them. Ask about their pain
and challenges with your industry or product and answer their questions with
your next blog posts.
Get the lowdown on your
packaging or website. Ask
about the end user experience to make your product
or website easier for your
customer.
Another method is to use
a quick checkbox or multiple-choice question survey to
get specific, measureable
feedback. Asking three to
four questions is reasonable
and can be accomplished by
the visitor in less than 25
seconds.
Here are some tips and
tricks to creating a simple,
but effective survey using
Waftios user-friendly interface.
SETTING UP YOUR
ONLINE SURVEY

questions. You have options
for open ended, multiple
choice, checkboxes and
more. The type of question
you should asks depends on
the data you want. Do you
want opinions? Ask open
ended questions. Do you
want to measure specific responses? Ask multiple
choice questions. Thinking
through the kind of questions to ask will help you
achieve your desired outcome. Simply click the Add
option and plug in any question you wish to be answered by your viewers.
Ideally, you will want to
use questions that relate, either directly or indirectly, to
your product, service or
brand. Once your survey is
complete, you can embed it
on your website in multiple
ways. It can be set to be a
box that pops up in the middle of the page, a small box
that pops up in the bottom
right, or added to an existing
webpage.
ANALYZING THE OUTCOME

After the survey has been

of device they used. You can
also export and download all
the submitted data to help
your business or organization learn from this customer interaction.

those who were willing to lay


down their lives for freedom
and the belief that liberty is a
right of all people, Wellman
said.
In his keynote remarks, the
mayor also called for a special remembrance for the
family members of the fallen.
We must not forget the
family members of those
fallen heroes for whom remembering is not a one-daya-year event, but for whom it
is a constant heartache, he
said. Remembering the loss
of a father, mother, brother,
sister, son or daughter, is
something that is as real for
them as breathing. To those
of you here who have lost a
loved one in the armed
forces, I express my gratitude
for your sacrifice, too.
The mayor called for the
community to also honor
those wounded in battle and
in service of the nation and
recognized those who are
now serving in the armed
forces.
In actuality, there is really
nothing we can say here today that can add the tiniest
shred to what our fallen heroes have given, he said.
They gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country and
for us, but what we can do,
what we must do, is three
things. We must promise that
we will never forget their
sacrifice. We must promise to
do all we can to work for
peace at home and abroad,
and thirdly, we must pray:
pray for our country, our

Tourism agency pulls

SOUTH BEND, Ind. A
northern Indiana tourism
agency has apologized and
pulled an advertisement it
copied from a tourism ad
campaign first used to promote Salt Lake City.
Visit South Bend Mishawaka pulled its $20,000 tourism spot after the similarities

The Utah-based ad agency

A video made for that campaign flashes the slogan,

followed by a montage of
tightly edited footage showing groups enjoying the citys

INDIANAPOLIS Former
Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard will be honored by an

The Indy Rainbow Chamber of Commerce will present Ballard with a plaque at
a June 1 ceremony. The
group praises Ballard for embracing diversity and opposing discrimination against
lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender Indiana residents.
Ballard was a vocal opponent of a religious objections

Rules?
What rules?

ules are made to be broken


is a saying that has many
variations, but perhaps no
one has summed up Hillary
Clintons attitude (and Bills, too) about
rules more than the late sciencefiction writer, Robert A. Heinlein, who
said: I am free, no matter what rules
surround me. If I find them tolerable,
I tolerate them; if I find them too
obnoxious, I break them. I am free
because I know that I alone am
morally responsible for everything I
do.
In its report on how Hillary Clinton
handled her private emails while
serving as secretary of state, the State
Departments inspector general has
found that Hillary Clinton disregarded
cyber security guidelines when she
used a private computer server. She
continues to deny she did anything
wrong and falsely claims she turned
over all of her emails to the State Department after she left office. In fact,
she, or members of her team, deleted
about 30,000 of them before an investigation of her practices began.
The IGs report chides her, saying she
should have preserved any federal
records she created and received on her
personal account by printing and filing
those records with the related files in
the Office of the Secretary. At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have
surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did
not do so, she did not comply with the
Departments policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal
Records Act.
There are federal penalties for tampering with a smoke detector on an airplane and disobeying flight attendants
that can include fines and even jail
time. Isnt what Hillary Clinton did far
worse than that, if she potentially compromised U.S. secrets?
The IG also says she stonewalled requests by the government for access to
her server, which was in her
Chappaqua, N.Y., home, with another
discovered at an unsecured location in
a Denver bathroom closet. Marcel Lazar, the Romanian computer hacker
calling himself Guccifer, claims to
have hacked into Clintons servers. He
pled guilty to the charge before a Virginia judge this week. Might there also
be Chinese and Russian hackers out
there whove also had a look at Clintons emails?
Hillary Clinton has claimed she only
used private email for her daughters
wedding and yoga classes. Who believes that, other than her partisan supporters and uninformed voters?
High-ranking government officials are
aware of the regulations governing
their tenure while in office and their responsibilities for the handling of
records once they leave it. Will Hillary
Clintons failure to comply with the
State Departments policies on records
necessarily lead to an indictment? That
is what an FBI investigation is attempting to determine.
Hillary Clinton has invoked the everybody has done it defense, but again
thats not true. She often cites former
Secretary of State Colin Powell, who
also used a private email server, but as
a Wall Street Journal editorial notes, Mr.
Powells use of private email was limited, and he never set up an unsecure
server in his home, not to mention a
Denver bathroom.
Something else from the IGs report
that firmly rebuts Hillary Clintons defense: Notification is required when a
user suspects compromise of, among
other things, a personally owned device
containing personally identifiable information. But the IG found no evidence that she or her aides complied.
For years the Clintons have skirted
laws and practiced disinformation, rhetorical gymnastics (It depends on what
the meaning of the word is is.) obfuscation, changing the subject, non sequiturs and anything else that might block
their enrichment or achievement of political goals.
This time, Hillary Clinton should not
be allowed to get away with it, nor
should she have her incidents of malfeasance rewarded by being elected
president of the United States.

Arithmetic shows dead end for Bernie


ath was actually my best
subject, until seventh grade,
when I was the only girl on
the math team: As if it were
on the intercom, I heard loud and
clear that girls werent supposed
to be good at math. But today Im
still proficient enough to figure
out how to add up to 2,383, the
number of delegates you need to
win the Democratic nomination.
And Hillary Clinton already has
2,305.
Thats 97 percent of what she
needs.
Or, for those who like to add and
subtract, with 694 delegates at
stake on June 7, including California and New Jersey, Clinton needs
only 78.
Seventy-eight delegates.
I know, Im including the superdelegates, and if Bernie Sanders
were to win landslide victories in
New Jersey and California, maybe
those superdelegates would start
changing their minds in droves on
the grounds that Sanders had won
the majority of pledged delegates.
There are many problems with
this argument, beginning, again,
with arithmetic. According to all the
sources I found (Im relying on the
AP here), the math dictates that

Free college? How about make the
opportunity of college available to
every young American who has
shown they are qualified to attend.
Couldnt that be good enough? Is
the difference really worth electing
Donald Trump over?
Back in 1980, the Carter people
never reached out to the Kennedy
people -- not until October. That is
surely a mistake Clinton will not
make. More importantly, the attitude of many in 1980, as I remember, was that Ronald Reagan simply
had no chance. Here was a guy who
believed pollution came from trees
(he really did say that once). He was
an actor, for goodness sake. We
were free to fight, because our opponent could not win.
How wrong can you be? The people who say Trump cant win sound
painfully familiar to me. And
equally wrong.

The tickets are set with Hale and Holcomb


he tickets are set. Democrat
John Gregg brought rising star
State Rep. Christina Hale into
the fore as his lieutenant
governor nominee three months
after Gov. Mike Pence replaced
Sue Ellspermann with Lt. Gov.
Eric Holcomb.
So what do Hale and Holcomb
mean to the Pence/Gregg rematch
between now and November? The
modern LG nominee is more like
salt and pepper, as opposed to a key
ingredient in the political stew
which is going to be a referendum
on Pence. They are selected to stoke
a particular demographic group,
whether it is with the broader electorate or to soothe part of the political base.
With Holcomb, Pence reached out
to a former aide to Gov. Mitch Daniels and U.S. Sen. Dan Coats as
well as a past state Republican
chairman under both governors. After Pence ignited a simmering feud
between the GOPs social conservative wing and the economic Daniels wing with the disastrous Religious Freedom Restoration Act last
year, Holcomb was seen as a bridge
between the two spheres.
Some believe that Holcomb will

Purdue specialist: Be sure hay is dry enough


PURDUE NEWS SERVICE

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.


The rainy weather that has
settled over much of Indiana
for the past month has made
harvesting and drying hay for
safe storage more difficult, potentially raising the risk of
barn fires, a Purdue Extension
forage specialist says.
Storing hay with a moisture
content of more than 20 percent without using a preservative could allow the growth of
bacteria that release heat and
cause mold formation, said
Keith Johnson, professor of
agronomy. This process increases the inner temperature
of the bales, sometimes high
enough to cause spontaneous

combustion.
Johnson said it can take
three to four weeks for temperatures to reach critical levels. He advised farmers to
check stored hay regularly for
warning signs of moisture or
heating, including checking
the temperature within stored
bales and touching bales to
see if they are hot.
Farmers should also be alert
for steam rising from bales,
condensation on the walls or
ceiling of the barn, mold on
the outer surface of the hay or
an acrid odor. Hay temperature probes are commercially
available.
If the internal temperature
of a bale or stack is around
150 degrees, farmers should

move the hay to allow air to


circulate while continuing to
monitor the temperature. If
the temperature exceeds 175
degrees, fire may be imminent, and the fire department
should be called.
Use caution
Smoldering hay can ignite
and burn rapidly when exposed to air, so if fire is suspected, farmers should not attempt to move the hay themselves, Johnson said.
Keith JohnsonTo help forage
dry faster when cut, farmers
can lay it in a wide swath with
a mower-conditioner, Johnson
said. This exposes the hay to
more sunlight and helps it dry
faster. Additionally, the mower-conditioner crimps the

stems of the hay, allowing


moisture to escape more
quickly. With more difficult
drying conditions, farmers can
consider tedding or windrow
inversion.
Farmers may also let the cut
forage wilt to 50 percent moisture content, then ferment to
silage, Johnson said. This is
done by wrapping the hay in
white plastic using an individual bale wrapper or in-line tuber, both of which keep air out
and allow lactic acid-forming
bacteria to ferment the forage.
The resulting low pH keeps
the forage in a stable condition during storage. This process reduces drying time but
involves additional packaging
costs.

the days left of this term.
Eight and one-half days left!
I still have a hard time
getting used to the bus
coming this early. All the
years our children went to
school the bus was never
here until 7 a.m. or a little
after. Changes are hard to
get used to in our lives!
Talking about changes in
life. Our family will have another change and Ill probably
have the hardest time with it.
On the other hand, Im excited
and happy for daughter Susan, 20, and her special friend,
Mose. They were published in
church this past Sunday to announce their wedding date.
They picked Friday, August 5,
for their special day. Mose and
Susan have been dating for
four years and we have no
doubt in our minds that he
will be a good husband to our
daughter. He seems like my
own son and I hope that never
changes. It is so much easier
on a couple if both families
accept the life partner of their
family member. May God
bless their marriage and grant
them many happy, healthy
years together!

Mose and daughters Susan

my flower beds. We put out
68 tomato plants. With everyones help the garden was
quickly filled. Now its up to
our good Lord to provide sun-

shine and rain to make things


grow. Some years we have a
bountiful crop and others not
much, but we want to take
what He sends.
On Sunday, May 22, I also
turned another year older. We
had communion services at
sister Emma and Jacobs
house. After the services were
over everyone sang Happy
Birthday to me and sister
Emma brought out a cake
with candles. Luckily she only
had a four and five for candles. I dont know if I could
have handled blowing out 45
candles. Emma sent the cake
home with me. We had it for
supper with our children. The
children went after pizza in
town and they grilled hot
wings so I wouldnt have to
cook on my birthday. We had
a nice evening together!
On Thursday we traveled to
Berne, Indiana, to brother
Amos and Nancys house for
the wedding of their daughter
Lovina and Benjamin. They
had a very nice day! On the

menu were fried chicken,


mashed potatoes, gravy, noodles, dressing, mixed vegetables, lettuce salad, sliced
cheese, homemade bread, butter and rhubarb jam. Also pies
(rhubarb, blueberry, cherry,
and pecan), tapioca pudding,
angel food cake, fruit cocktail
dessert, and of course nothings were on all the tables.
Sausage was added in the evening. It was nice to see a lot of
family again.
On a sadder note; Friday,
May 20, brought memories of
the passing of my dear father,
Ben Coblentz, 16 years ago.
How nice it would be to have
my parents at all their grandchildrens weddings. Gods
ways are not our ways so we
need to accept what He sends
to us.
I must get busy. I love sewing, but its different if you
have a deadline to get things
done. It kind of takes away
the enjoyment, but we will
take one day at a time. Gods
blessings!

Military veteran finds a mission nursing fellow vets at VA


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP)
Nursing assistant Tom Alligood
wears camouflage scrubs during his emergency room shifts
at the Dorn VA hospital because he says it helps other
veteran patients realize theyve
walked over the same dirt,
the 62-year-old former Army
tanker says.
And he doesnt just mean the
desert sands of Iraq.
Alligood means homelessness, job loss and the mental
anguish of being a long-time

military veteran trying to adjust


to the trials of a dog-eat-dog,
backstabbing civilian world he
says nearly ate him alive.
I need to be around veterans
like me. Thats where I get my
strength, my positiveness
from, says the burly former
first sergeant who now sports a
long, gray braid on his back.
Alligood says he has found a
new mission - working in the
sprawling Columbia VA hospital and helping as many of his
one-time brothers and sisters in

Obama marks Memorial


Day at Arlington
National Cemetery
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP)
President Barack Obama laid
a wreath Monday at the Tomb
of the Unknowns to honor
members of the military who
died serving their country.
Obamas appearance at Arlington National Cemetery
carries on a longstanding
presidential tradition and
comes as the U.S. struggles to
end various conflicts in the
Middle East.
In his remarks, Obama
called for Americans to honor
the fallen by caring for those
they leave behind their families and their battle buddies
who come home.
We need to be there not
just when we need them, but
when they need us, Obama

said of the nations veterans.


Obama said 20 members of
the armed forces had died in
combat within the last year.
Special operations forces
continue to serve in dangerous missions in Syria, Iraq and
Afghanistan, even as the U.S.
military presence in the latter
two countries has been greatly
reduced under Obamas watch.
The focus in Iraq and Syria
is on defeating the Islamic
State group. In Afghanistan,
U.S. troops work with Afghan
forces battling the Taliban.
Prior to traveling to Arlington, Obama held a breakfast
reception at the White House
for family members of fallen
service members and veterans
groups.

Trumps movement campaign


needs adjustments at margins
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Donald
Trump calls his presidential
campaign a mass movement,
but he must show he can coax
enough support from voters
who twice delivered the White
House to Barack Obama.
The billionaire businessman
depended almost exclusively
on conservative and GOP-leaning whites a majority of
them men to secure the Republican nomination. Now he
must look ahead to a wider,
more diverse voting population
in his likely general election
matchup with Democratic
front-runner Hillary Clinton.
His ability to seize on marginal shifts in the electorate
may determine whether he can
pull off a victory once unthinkable. Trumps task is critical to
flipping back into the GOP
column some of the most contested states that Obama won
twice.
This challenge is perhaps
most evident in Florida, a culturally, racially and ideologically varied state where Obama
defeated Republican Mitt Romney four years ago by fewer
than 75,000 votes out of more
than 8.4 million cast.
That means small shifts anywhere in the electorate could
make a difference from turnout changes among white
small-town and rural Republicans or urban, nonwhite Democrats to partisans, embittered
by contentious nominating
bouts, choosing third-party
candidates or declining to vote
at all; and if Trump cant close
the gaps in Florida, he has little
shot at winning key Rust Belt
and Great Lakes states where
Obamas advantages were
greater.
We still elect presidents using the Electoral College ... depending on states that are
made up of diverse electorates, cautions GOP pollster
Whit Ayres. There arent
enough angry white people to
create a majority in the new
America of 2016, (and) running up your numbers with
white males in Mississippi
doesnt get you one more electoral vote than Mitt Romney.
One of Trumps vanquished
primary rivals, Sen. Marco Rubio, told reporters this week
Trump can win Florida, which
has gone with the winner in
every presidential contest since
1996, as long as he can continue to be Donald. That brash
outsider pitch has sewn up
support from white men like
Jack Oliver, a 66-year-old construction worker from West
Palm Beach and 84-year-old
Frank Papa, a retired grocery
manager from Clearwater.
Oliver cites Trumps hard
line on immigration and calls

him a leader who will finally


give a damn about people like
me. Papa, a New Jersey native,
says Trump speaks my language, talks and thinks like
me.
But Trump must expand his
reach. If he cant unify Republicans, there really isnt enough
votes for him to make up elsewhere, said Steve Schale, who
ran Obamas 2008 campaign in
Florida. He said Florida elections have been close for decades, noting 41 million combined presidential votes have
been cast since 1992, with
fewer than 131,000 votes separating the combined totals of
Democratic and Republican
nominees.
Trump gives lip service to
the electorates diversity, suggesting the Mexican people
will vote for me like crazy
and that he can win 25 percent
of African-Americans. The
highest number of African-Americans won by any
GOP nominee since 1980 is
about 12 percent. He said recently he could lure 40 percent of voters backing Clintons primary opponent, Bernie
Sanders.
Some nonwhite Floridians
mock Trumps claims about his
own appeal.
I havent heard any of my
(black) friends say theyll vote
for Trump, said Tanisha
Winns, 39, a black Democrat in
Lakeland, located along central
Floridas Interstate 4 corridor
that twice helped give Republican George W. Bush the statewide victory before swinging
in Obamas favor. If anything,
Im hearing my white friends
say they wont, Winns added.
For now, Florida polls suggest Trump and Clinton are
running about even, with
about 15 percent undecided.
But there are variables that
should give Trump pause.
In 2012, nonwhites accounted for almost a third of
all votes cast in Florida, compared to 28 percent nationwide. But population growth,
driven by Hispanics, suggests
both numbers could be higher
come November.
Obama beat Romney among
Floridas black voters, with 95
percent. The president won
Hispanics by a 60-40 margin,
closer than his 71-27 advantage
nationally, with many of
Floridas conservative Cuban-American voters accounting for the difference. Those
numbers still left Romney too
reliant on whites. He managed
61 percent of Floridas white
vote better than his 59 percent nationally but he needed
to get closer to 63 percent to
win the Sunshine States 29
electoral votes.

arms as he can.
And the VA is looking for
more people like Alligood.
In an attempt to respond to
the crisis of lengthy patient
wait-times and a malfunctioning bureaucracy, VA Secretary
Robert McDonald told Congress the agency hired about
14,000 health care workers last
year, including 1,300 doctors
and 3,600 nurses.
At Dorn, nursing administrator Ruth Mustard said the hospital hired an average of 85

nurses as well as 25 licensed


practical nurses and 25 nursing
assistants each year for the past
two years.
Alligoods background as a
military veteran is a plus, she
says, and they can always use
more like him.
Veterans know what it takes
to serve and what sacrifices
theyve endured and what some
of their challenges have been
that have affected their health,
the nurse supervisor says.
Alligood said he can relate to

his veteran-patients because


the route he took from being a
VA patient to VA caregiver has
been a challenging one.
After leaving the Army, he
took a job managing a concrete
block plant. The job was eliminated when the plant was sold.
Falling deep in debt, Alligood
said he took to sleeping in
abandoned buildings after losing his car and his home. Life
in homeless shelters didnt sit
right, either.
I wasnt in the best of shape,

mentally and physically, he


said, his rumbling voice catching. That was the lowest Ive
ever been.
Alligood said counselors told
him about a VA program that
put homeless veterans into
counseling and back to work.
He grabbed the chance to put
in 40 hours a week transporting other veterans around the
hallways of the sprawling Dorn
VA Medical Center in wheelchairs and gurneys.

ST. LOUIS Never mind


toasters, blenders and slow
cookers. Joplin, Missouri, tornado survivors Kayla and
Ricky Smith had a more
practical request for a wedding gift shelter from the
next big storm.
The Smiths were on the
leading edge of an odd trend
in Tornado Alley: Engaged
couples using bridal registries or word of mouth to request donations so they can
purchase safe rooms, which
are strong, pre-fabricated
shelters typically installed in
houses or garages.
Several tornadoes have
ravaged the Midwest and
South in recent years. A
month before the May 22,
2011, tornado in Joplin,
which killed 161 people and
destroyed 7,000 homes, hundreds died in a series of
deadly tornadoes in the
South. And a tornado in
Moore, Oklahoma, in 2013
killed 24.
The devastation raised
awareness about the need for
safety in homes that dont
have basements. Safe room
sales skyrocketed, aided in
part by the availability of
Federal Emergency Management Agency grant and rebate programs that help pay
for them in some states.
The pre-fabricated rooms
feature thick steel walls and
doors that can withstand
winds up to 250 mph. They
are windowless with no light
fixtures or electricity. Most
are small and built in a garage or closet. Safe rooms
typically cost $3,000 to
$7,000, depending on the size.

6 dead, 2 missing
sugar daddies
HOUSTON Authorities in
central Texas have found two
more bodies along flooded
streams, bringing the death
toll from flooding in the state
to six.
It was unclear Sunday
whether a body found in
Travis County near Austin is
one of the two people still
missing in Texas. An 11-yearold boy was still missing in
central Kansas, too.
The latest flooding victim
identified by authorities was
a woman who died when the
car she was riding in was
swept from the street by the
flooded Cypress Creek about
1:30 a.m. Sunday, Kendall
County sheriffs Cpl. Reid
Daly said.
The car, with three occupants, was in Comfort, about
45 miles north of San Antonio. The driver made it to
shore, and a female passenger was rescued from a tree.
But Daly said 23-year-old
Florida Molima was missing
until her body was found
around 11 a.m. Sunday about
8 miles downstream. She becomes the sixth flood-related
death in Texas this Memorial
Day weekend.
In Bandera, about 45 miles
northwest of San Antonio, an
estimated 10 inches of rain

of nine people. The rain
caused widespread damage,
including the collapse of the

Candice Kashani graduated


from law school debt-free
this spring, thanks to a modern twist on an age-old arrangement.
During her first year, she
faced tuition and expenses
that ran nearly $50,000, even
after a scholarship. So she
decided to check out a dating
website that connected
women looking for financial
help with men willing to provide it, in exchange for companionship and sex a
sugar daddy relationship as
they are known.
Now, almost three years
and several sugar daddies
later, Kashani is set to graduate from Villanova University
free and clear, while some of
her peers are burdened with
six-digit debts.
As the cost of tuition and
rent rises, so does the apparent popularity of such sites
among students. But are they
really providing financial relief, or signing women up for
something more exploitative
and dangerous than debt?
Kashani believes such sites
are a great resource for
young women, but others say
these arrangements smack of
prostitution and take advantage of women in a vulnerable situation.

A veterans race
against time
ST. ALBANS, Vt. A
group that seeks to reunite
lost Purple Hearts with ser-

vice members or their descendants is embarking on


an ambitious project: to return 100 such medals or certificates earned in World War
I before the 100th anniversary next April of the United
States entry into the conflict.
Zachariah Fike, of the Vermont-based Purple Hearts
Reunited, began the project
after noticing he had in his
collection of memorabilia a
total of exactly 100 Purple
Hearts or equivalent lithographs awarded for injuries
or deaths from the Great
War.
Youre honoring fallen heroes, said Fike, a Vermont
National Guard captain
wounded in Afghanistan in
2010. These are our forefathers; these are the guys
that have shed their blood or
sacrificed their lives for us.
Any opportunity to bring
light to that is always a good
thing.
The lithographs, known as
a Lady Columbia Wound Certificate and showing a toga-wearing woman knighting
an infantry soldier on bended
knee, were what World War I
military members wounded
or killed while serving were
awarded before the Purple
Heart came into being in
1932. World War I service
members who already had a
lithograph became eligible
for a Purple Heart at that
time.
The Purple Hearts and the
certificates include the name
of the service member to
whom they were awarded.
Fike is working with researchers to try to find the
descendants of the service
members.

WORLD BRIEFS
Trump finds
fans in China
BEIJING China features
prominently in the rhetoric
of presumed Republican
presidential candidate Donald Trump, who accuses the
country of stealing American
jobs and cheating at global
trade. In China itself, though,
hes only now emerging as a
public figure, despite notoriety elsewhere for his voluble
utterances, high-profile businesses and reality TV show.
And although Chinese officials and state media have
denounced Trumps threats of
economic retaliation, many
Chinese observers see a silver lining in his focus on economic issues to the near-total
exclusion of human rights
and political freedoms. That
appears to make him an attractive alternative to his
likely rival, Democrat Hillary
Clinton, who is regarded as
far more critical of Chinas
communist system.
Trump could in fact be the
best president for China,
Hong Kong Phoenix Television political commentator
Wu Jun said during a recent
on-air discussion.
Thats because the Republican Party is more practical
and Trump is a businessman
who puts his commercial interests above everything
else, Wu said. Clinton, on the
other hand, might be the
least friendly president toward China.
Despite his frequent evocations of China, its not clear
how familiar Trump actually
is with the country. While
hes claimed to have made
billions of dollars dealing
with China, he has no
known investments in the
nation, and it isnt clear what
influential figures he knows
in the Chinese political and
business realms. Chinese are,
however, customers for
Trumps hotel, golf course
and real estate ventures,
while Trump-branded clothing and accessories have
been made in China.

More than 700 feared

The shipwrecks appear to
account for the largest loss of
life reported in the Mediterranean since April 2015,
when a single ship sank with
an estimated 800 people

organizations say that many
migrant boats sink without a
trace, with the dead never
found, and their fates only recounted by family members
who report their failure to arrive in Europe.
It really looks like that in
the last period the situation
is really worsening in the last
week, if the news is confirmed, said Giovanna Di
Benedetto, a Save the Children spokeswoman in Italy.
Warmer waters and calmer
weather of late have only increased the migrants attempts to reach Europe.
The largest number of
missing and presumed dead
was aboard a wooden fishing
boat being towed by another
smugglers boat from the
Libyan port of Sabratha that
sank Thursday. Estimates by
police and humanitarian organizations, based on survivor accounts, range from
around 400 to about 550
missing in that sinking alone.

lias Great Barrier Reef,


though corals to the south
have escaped with little damage, scientists said on Monday.
Researchers who conducted months of aerial and
underwater surveys of the
1,400-mile reef off Australias
east coast found that around
35 percent of the coral in the
northern and central sections
of the reef are dead or dying,
said Terry Hughes, director of
the ARC Centre of Excellence
for Coral Reef Studies at
James Cook University in
Queensland state. And some
parts of the reef had lost
more than half of the coral to
bleaching.
The extent of the damage,
which has occurred in just
the past couple of months,
has serious implications,
Hughes said. Though
bleached corals that havent
died can recover if the water
temperature drops, older corals take longer to bounce
back and likely wont have a
chance to recover before the
next bleaching event occurs,
he said. Coral that has died is
gone for good, which affects
other creatures that rely on it
for food and shelter.

FRANKFURT, Germany
(AP) Europes economy is finally showing signs of increasing strength, after years of
sluggishness and false starts.
And that means the European Central Bank likely
wont have to step up its ongoing $1.93 trillion stimulus
program when it meets this
week.
Fear not the chief monetary authority for the countries that use the euro will go
on pumping newly printed
money into the European
economy in an effort to raise
inflation. But thats only due to
measures that were decided at
previous meetings, and which
are either still running or just
now being implemented.
So analysts dont expect any
new stimulus jolts to be announced at Thursdays meeting of the banks 25-member
governing council in Vienna.
Theres little sign that President Mario Draghi and Co. are
ready to drop more stimulus
news. Some economists are
saying dont expect anything
more for the rest of this year,
if at all.
The ECB is holding steady
just as the U.S. Federal Reserve seems to be moving
close to a rate increase at its
June meeting. It hiked its key
rate in December from near
zero to a range between 0.25
percent and 0.5 percent, but
then held off any more increase s amid unsettling
swings in stock markets.
Global jitters seem to have
eased since then. The U.S. recovery is more advanced, so
Fed chief Janet Yellen can
contemplate withdrawing
some stimulus.
Inflation is still way too low,
at minus 0.2 percent, and unemployment is painfully high
at 10.2 percent. But there are
two big factors that should let
the ECB kick back for a few
months at least.
First, the economy in the 19
countries that share the euro
currency is finally showing
signs of a somewhat more robust and lasting recovery after
a miserable six years in which
it was battered by global and
local crises. The eurozone

Leaders mark
Battle of Verdun
VERDUN, France In solemn ceremonies Sunday in
the forests of eastern France,
French President Francois
Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel marked
100 years since the Battle of
Verdun, determined to show
that, despite the bloodbath of
World War I, their countries
improbable friendship is now
a source of hope for todays
fractured Europe.
The 10-month battle at Verdun the longest in World
War I killed 163,000 French
and 143,000 German soldiers
and wounded hundreds of
thousands of others.
Between February and December 1916, an estimated
60 million shells were fired
in the battle. One out of four
didnt explode. The front line
villages destroyed in the
fighting were never rebuilt.
The battlefield zone still
holds millions of unexploded
shells, making the area so
dangerous that housing and
farming are still forbidden.

grew 0.5 percent in the first


quarter from the quarter before. It finally regained the
level of output it had in the
first quarter of 2008, before
the global financial crisis associated with the collapse of U.S.
investment bank Lehman
Brothers, and before a crisis
over high debt in some countries that almost broke up the
currency union. Figures published Monday showed that
business and consumer optimism rose to a four-month
high in May, while inflation
expectations picked up across
a range of businesses. Auto
sales have risen for 32 straight
months.
Second, oil prices have crept
up, edging over $50 per barrel
last week for the first time
since July 2015. That should
give the ECB a tiny bit of help
by raising inflation. Economist
Carsten Brzeski at ING-DiBa
wrote in an email that higher
oil prices should lead to the
first upward revision of the
ECBs staff inflation forecasts
since... early 2015. That was
when the bank launched a
major stimulus effort through
bond purchases with newly
printed money dubbed quantitative easing, or QE.
The last ECB projections in
March foresaw only 0.1 percent inflation this year and 1.3
percent in 2017. Thats well
below the banks goal of just
under 2 percent, considered
compatible with growth and
jobs.
Meanwhile, June will see
the implementation of two
stimulus measures decided
April 21. Those are the decision to purchase high-quality
corporate bonds and to offer
banks ultra-cheap long-term
loans. Both steps are aimed at
increasing lending, business
and consumer spending, and,
in theory, higher prices as demand for goods increases.
The ECB is already purchasing $89 billion in government
through at least March 2017
and some private-sector bonds
in a program that began in
March 2015. Those purchases
hand banks money that didnt
exist before in return for their
bonds.

Iraqi forces push into Fallujah as IS bombings kill 24


BAGHDAD (AP) Iraqi
forces started pushing into the
city of Fallujah on Monday as a
wave of bombings claimed by
the Islamic State group in
Baghdad and near the Iraqi
capital killed at least 24 people.
The advance is part of an offensive to rout militants from

Fallujah and recapture the city


west of Baghdad, which has
been held by the Islamic State
for over two years. The offensive on Fallujah, backed by
paramilitary troops and aerial
support from the U.S.-led coalition, was first launched about a
week ago.

The battle for the strategic


city is likely to be a protracted
one, with Iraqi forces advancing slowly to minimize civilian
casualties. Tens of thousands of
civilians are believed to be still
inside the city, trapped by the
fighting.
Meanwhile, the bombings by

the Islamic State, which has


been behind several recent
deadly attacks in Baghdad and
beyond, are seen as an attempt
by the militants to distract the
security forces attention from
the front lines.
The deadliest of Mondays
attacks took place in the north-

ern, Shiite-dominated Shaab


neighborhood of Baghdad
where a suicide b omb er
rammed his explosives-laden
car into a checkpoint next to a
commercial area, killing eight
civilians and three soldiers. The
explosion also wounded up to
14 people, a police officer said.

A suicide car bomber struck


an outdoor market in the town
of Tarmiyah, about 50 kilometers (31 miles) north of Baghdad, killing seven civilians and
three policemen, another police
officer said, adding that 24
people were wounded in that
bombing.

n past columns I featured


the prairies that once, and
in a few locations, still
can be found in Indiana.
Only limited sites remain
where the original prairie
once existed in Indiana.
Most of these are now
protected in nature
preserves. Other areas now
are being restored to prairie
conditions and are great
places to visit.
Most of our Indiana protected prairies are in northwestern Hoosierland. Only a
few are located south of
Terre Haute. A sand prairie
restoration project is in Daviess County, north of Washington. Due to a number of
rare plants and its isolated
location it is not open to
public visitation. This is the
84-acre Prairie Creek Barrens, both an example of an
Indiana barrens community
and a high sand prairie.
In Sullivan County, in
Shakamak State Park, is the
Shakamak Prairie Nature
Preserve, a 27-acre mesic
prairie that is rare in southern Indiana.
In Vigo County, north of
Terre Haute, is eight-acre Little Bluestem Prairie owned
and managed by Indiana
State University. Two other
protected prairie sites are
tiny one-acre preserves. They
are German Methodist Cemetery Prairie Nature Preserve
in Lake County and Smith
Cemetery in Vermillion
County.
Somewhat larger protected
prairies are Cressmore, 38
acres, and 34-acre Biesecker,
both in Lake County, 12-acre
Eby in Elkhart, and the 23acre Spinn Prairie in White
County.
Another larger preserve is
the Dunes Prairie, a 57-acre
site in Porter County. This
state nature preserve, in addition to having a restored
prairie, also features a graminoid dune, an oak savanna,
and a swamp forest.

preserves, and the best sites

BARR-REEVE PITCHER LOGAN JAMES hits the ball in the


Loogootee sectional semi-final game against Loogootee. The
Vikings would win 6-5 in the bottom of the seventh on Monday.

LOOGOOTEE Its not a secret


that Barr-Reeve and Loogootee
have played some epic contests in
every sport through the decades.
In the semi-finals of Sectional 63
at Loogootees Les Page Field,
things were no different on Monday. Barr-Reeve advanced to the
title game in walk-off fashion with
a 6-5 win, but not before Loogootee staged a comeback for the ages.
Loogootee got the offensive action under way as Brett Robinson
crushed a long solo home run off

sectional final game.

Viking hurler Logan James to begin the second inning. After the Lions opened the 1-0 advantage,
Barr-Reeve seemed to settle in.
The Vikes scored at least once in
each of the second through fifth
innings to open a 5-1 advantage.
James was also rolling on the
mound during an outing where he

recorded 13 strikeouts. As the


game moved to the top of the seventh inning, Barr-Reeve looked to
be on cruise control, but Loogootee, and specifically Landon Bell
had other ideas.
Robinson opened the inning
with a long single, after another
single, James issued a free pass to
Jake Blackwell to load the bases
with no outs. Bell, the Lions number two hitter, blasted a long grand
slam to left center field to tie the
score at 5-5.

JOHN MULLEN
TIMES HERALD

LOOGOOTEE For two innings, North Daviess freshman


starter Chris Reed and his teammates matched zeroes on the
scoreboard with the third-ranked
team in the state in Class A, Vincennes Rivet, on Monday at Les
Page Field.
However, the third frame was a
completely different story as the
Patriots started what eventually
turned into a seven-spot with
some lead-off small balls to create some base path pressure;
several hits and four ND miscues
later, the Patriots had put up a
touchdown with extra point to all
but seal the deal in the 13-1 win
in five innings.
North Daviess, meanwhile, had
a hard time getting anything going against Rivet mound presence, Lance Lane. The senior
hurler was perfect through three
innings, six of the outs via the
strikeout. Rivet continued to pile
on, putting up a crooked number
in both the fourth and fifth, to
send the defending sectional
champs home in the second afternoon semi-final of the Loogootee Sectional.
Offensively, VR seniors Jackson
Niehaus and Austin Woodruff
had timely run-scoring hits in the

explosive third, while also coming around to score. Tanner


Thomas, another senior, had a
two-run homer in the fourth off
of Cougar reliever Trey Smith.
VRs Tanner Allen, along with
pinch-hitter Landon Robbins,
added RBI base knocks in the
fifth to keep the line moving.
The Cougars did manage to
break through in the fourth off of
the hard-throwing Lane. Back-toback hits with one out from
Caleb Wagler and freshman Landon Mokris aided ND in keeping
Lane and the Pats from registering a shutout. Tho se two
hits were the only ones given up
by the otherwise stingy senior
righty. The five-inning affair was
completed on ground out, and
two strikeouts as Lane finished
what he started.
Coach Steven McNabbs youth
movement saw his squad complete the year at 9-15. After a
surprise sectional title last year,
McNabb played much of the season working freshmen into the
varsity line-up, culminating in
five seeing significant sectional
action, with a sixth, catcher Shom
Berry, not available due to injury.
On the other hand, the seven
Rivet senior s are tour neytested, with two regional titles

WASHINGTONS BEN LAMBERT hits a home run against Jasper on Monday at Ruxer Field. WHS lost
14-2.

Hatchets fall to No. 1 Jasper


TODD LANCASTER
TIMES HERALD

JASPER The Jasper Wildcats


reminded everyone just how dangerous the Class 3A No. 1 team
could be, on Monday in the semifinals of the Jasper Sectional at Alvin
Ruxer Field.
Although the 17-win Hatchets
(17-11) brought in one of its strongest hitting teams in recent memory, they faced a particularly tough
task having to battle Indiana University recruit Cal Kreuger on the
mound.
Kreuger was staked to an early
7-0 lead after a half an inning, and
Jasper never looked back in the
14-2 Wildcat win. However, it
wasnt all Kreuger, as Jasper (26-3)
also got a solid relief effort from
Reece Kleinhelter who limited
WHS to just four of the teams five
hits.
The Wildcats jumped out to an
early lead on WHS starter Jake
Bedwell. A double from Jaspers
Evan Ader with two on, followed
by a triple to Brandon Bayer, led to
a 3-0 lead. Jaspers Logan Mathis
added a single, followed by a single
from Jacob Lents, and WHS coach
Steve Reed was forced to make a
change to Kaden Pfender just one
out into the inning. After Pfender
entered, a pair of singles and an

error led to three more runs, leading to a 7-0 lead after just half an
inning.
We know you cant give Jasper a
seven-run lead to start the game.
They are just way too good of a
team; you cant give Jasper seven
runs in a game and expect to win.
It was an uphill battle from there,
said Reed.
However, the Hatchets did not
lay down in the bottom of the inning. Jeremiah Kirsch reached on
an error, followed by a long double
to the fence from Austin Moody,
scoring Kirsch and cutting the lead
to 7-1.
The Hatchets suffered even more
damage in the second. After Krueger walked, Ader came up with his
second big hit of the day with a
blast over the left field wall to
make it 9-1. Jasper would pick up
one more, to make it 10-1, before
Pfender would get the last two outs.
The Hatchets appeared to get a
break as Krueger was replaced by
Reece Kleinhelter on the hill. He
was immediately greeted by Ben
Lambert, who blasted his sixth
home run of the year to make it
10-2, but that would be the last big
hit he would give up.
Lambert took over in the top of
the third for WHS and struck out
two of the four he faced, keeping

the Wildcats off the board for the


first time in the game.
Mathies tripled against Lambert
in the fourth to make it 11-1, but
Lambert was able to get a pair of
outs to strand Mathies at third.
Bedwell picked up the third
Hatchet hit of the game to open the
fourth, but Kleinhelter was able to
settle down without any more
damage. He looked just as strong
in the bottom of the fifth, retiring
the side in order and picking up
two more strikeouts.
Jasper put the 10-run rule into
play with three more runs to make
it 14-2, after the teams fifth error
and a pair of wild pitches.
The Hatchets threatened in the
bottom of the sixth, including a
single from Moody that ended his
season hitting just above .500 of
the year. However, Jasper was able
to shut the door and advance to the
finals.
Reed also said goodbye to his six
seniors, Zach Scheid, Bedwell, Colten Garland, Kory May, Pfender
and Liam OHaver.
They were a great group. Several of those kids were four-year
players for me and you dont see
that very often, said Reed. Those
kids never gave me one second of
trouble on or off the field. They will
all be successful later in life.

Lone Star: Spieths 8th PGA win is 1st in Texas, at Colonial


FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Jordan Spieth found the perfect cure for
his Masters misery.
With an impressive back nine at
Colonial, Spieth won at home in
Texas for the first time on the PGA
Tour. He had three consecutive birdies after making the turn, and three
more in a row to finish his 5-under
65 on Sunday, including a chip-in
birdie from behind the 17th green

after a fortunate bounce off a marshal.


In our third tournament back, to
come back and close this one out the
way we did is really, really special,
Spieth said. This day is a moment
thatll go down, no matter what happens in the next 30 years of my career, this will be one of the most important days that Ive ever had.
The second-ranked Spieth punctu-

ated his eighth career victory with a


34-foot birdie putt when he needed
only a bogey to win the Dean &
Deluca Invitational.
At 17-under 263, Spieth finished
three strokes ahead of Harris English
(66). Colonial member Ryan Palmer
and Webb Simpson tied for third at
13 under, both shooting 68 in the final group with Spieth.
Last month at Augusta, Spieth

blew a five-stroke lead on the back


nine when trying to win the Masters
for the second year in a row. There
was then an extended break before
he missed the cut at The Players
Championship and then finished tied
for 18th a week ago at the Byron
Nelson before finally winning in the
Lone Star State after three runner-up
finishes there, including Colonial last
year.

The significance of it happening


now ... because I wasnt sure how
long it would take to get over the
hurdle of having to come in to every
single interview room, having to listen to crowds only talk about what
happened a month ago, he said.
And its very difficult, and Im 22. Its
not like I hadnt won, and weve won

Gasol considering skipping Olympics because of Zika


MADRID (AP) Pau Gasol
is considering not playing at
the Olympics because of the
Zika virus.
The Spanish basketball
player said Monday there is
too much uncertainty about
the situation in Brazil and
anyone going to Rio de Janeiro for the games should
think about whether its
worth the risk.
The Chicago Bulls player
said other Spanish athletes
have also expressed their concerns about the virus and are
also considering skipping the
games.
It wouldnt surprise me to
see some athletes deciding not
to participate in the games to
avoid putting their health and
the health of their families at
risk, Gasol said, adding that
he was among the athletes
making such considerations.

I m t h i n k i n g a b o u t
(whether or not to go), he
said. Just like every athlete,
or any other person considering going to Rio, should be
thinking about it.
Without giving name s,
Gasol said he talked to other
athletes who told him they
may not participate in the
games.
Some of these athletes are
planning to have children in
the near future and this could
affect them, it could affect the
health of their kids and their
wives, he said at an event for
one of his sponsors in Madrid.
Their health should come
first.
Brazil has been badly hit by
Zika, the mosquito-borne virus linked to severe birth defects and possible neurological problems in adults.
Gasol said officials involved

Rocco Mediate wins


Senior PGA Championship
BENTON HARBOR, Mich.
(AP) Rocco Mediate holed
out from a greenside bunker
for birdie on the par-3 17th to
wrap up a record-setting,
wire-to-wire victory Sunday
in the Senior PGA Championship.
Smoking cigars during the
round, the 53-year-old Mediate closed with a 5-under 66
holing a 15-footer for par on
the last at Jack Nicklaus-designed Harbor Shores for a
three-stroke victory over twotime defending champion Colin Montgomerie.
I didnt know I shot 66,
Mediate said. I didnt know
what the heck I shot today. ...
A lot of great things happened today and I dont believe Im sitting here. I really
dont.
The bunker shot on 18 was
the highlight of the day at the

major championship.
That was sick, Mediate
said. As soon as it left the
club, I knew it had a chance.
Obviously, I didnt know it
was going to make it, of
course not, but I had a feeling
I might. That made a big difference. It made a huge difference. Because Monty was
there for three. At least three.
And if I make bogey there,
and it goes to one shot going
to the last hole, who knows
what happens? Who knows?
So it was very fortunate at
that time.
Mediate finished at 19-under 265 to break the tournament record of 268 set by
Sam Snead in 1973 at PGA
National. The six-time PGA
Tour winner became the first
wire-to-wire winner in the
event since Nicklaus in 1991
at PGA National.

in the games must come forward with more clear information about the risks athletes could be facing if they
decide to compete in Rio.
I hope the national Olympic committees and the health
organizations can be as clear
as possible about the risks in
Brazil so athletes can decide
whether or not to take risks,
he said.
I dont think weve been
told enough about it.
Later Monday, the Spanish
Olympic committee released a
statement that included updated recommendations from
the World Health Organization regarding the virus, saying every member of its delegation should be aware of
them.
The committee said it has
been constantly relaying to
the federations the informa-

tion it receives from health


authorities and the International Olympic Committee.
Gasol mentioned the call
from 150 health specialists to
consider postponing or moving the Aug. 5-21 Olympics,
something the WHO rejected
last week.

WASHINGTON TIMES HERALD

Offseason moves
send Sharks to final

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP)


After watching the San Jose
Sharks miss the playoffs for
the first time in more than a
decade, general manager
Doug Wilson set out to remake the team last offseason.
Individually, none of the
moves sent shockwaves
through the N H L. The
Sharks hired a coach who
made the playoffs once in
seven seasons as an NHL
coach, traded a first-round
pick for a goalie who had
been a backup his entire career, added two playoff-tested
veterans for depth at forward
and defense and signed an
unheralded Finnish rookie.
Together, the additions of
Peter DeBoer, Martin Jones,
Joel Ward, Paul Martin and
Joonas Donskoi to a solid
core that had underachieved
proved to be the right mix to
get the Sharks to their longawaited first Stanley Cup Final appearance.
I thought this team has a
lot of the pieces of that puzzle, Martin said. Doug did a
great job bringing guys in
that he did, to make that
push for it. I dont think
many people would have
guessed that wed be here
right now, but I think we believed.
The players all said the
disappointment of blowing a
3-0 series lead to Los Angeles in 2014 and then missing
the playoffs entirely last season served as fuel for this
seasons success.
DeBoer also credited former coach Todd McLellan for
helping put the foundation in
place that he was able to
capitalize on.
The Sharks became the
second team in the past 10
seasons to make it to the fi-

nal after missing the playoffs


the previous season, joining
the 2011-12 Devils that
pulled off the same trick in
DeBoers first season in New
Jersey.
Everyone was ready for
something a little bit fresher
and newer, not anything that
much different, DeBoer said.
The additions that Doug
made, it just came together. I
inherited a similar team in
New Jersey when I went in
there. First time they missed
the playoffs for a long time
the year before I got there. I
think when you go into that
situation, when you have really good people like there
was in New Jersey when I
went in there, like I was with
this group ... theyre embarrassed by the year they just
had, and theyre willing to do
and buy into whatever youre
selling to get it fixed again. I
think I was the benefactor of
that.
The transition from McLellan to DeBoer wasnt seamless. As late as Jan. 8, the
Sharks were in 13th place in
the 14-team Western Conference and seemingly on the
way to another missed postseason. But with Logan Couture finally healthy after being slowed by a broken leg
early in the season and the
move by DeBoer to put Tomas Hertl on the top line
with Joe Thornton and Joe
Pavelski, the Sharks rolled
after that and made the playoffs as the third-place team
in the Pacific Division.
In-season additions of players like depth forwards Dainius Zubrus and Nick Spaling,
physical defenseman Roman
Polak and backup goaltender
James Reimer helped put the
Sharks in the position they
are now.

an intentional pass to Trevor


Yoder, but senior Jalon
Graber played the role of
hero for Barr-Reeve.
The senior drilled a single
off of the glove of the Loogootee second baseman, and
as the ball spun to short right
field, James sprinted home to
allow Barr-Reeve to advance
to the title game.
The victory moved the Vikings to 16-10 on the season,
and Loogootee closed the
2016 campaign with a 9-14
mark.

Truex Jr. dominates

INDYCAR ROOKIE ALEXANDER ROSSI won the 100th Indy 500 on Sunday.

Rossi stretches his final drops


of gas to win the Indy 500
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Alexander Rossi spent the biggest weekend in auto racing
last year in Monaco, looking
for a television that was
broadcasting the Indianapolis
500. Back then, American
was still hoping he could land
a full-time ride in Formula
One.
He eventually ran out of
time.
On Sunday, in the biggest
race of his life and as a rookie
driver to boot, Rossi almost
ran out of gas.
Almost.
Instead, the 24-year-old
Rossi outlasted his faster rivals and his fuel tank for a
stunning victory in the historic 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, landing him
atop the biggest podium in
motorsports after his car ran
out of gas on the victory lap.
This was a win no one not
even Rossi could have predicted when he decided to return the United States and
give IndyCar a chance.
He had no idea. He
honestly had no idea, said
team co-owner Michael Andretti. He was 100 percent
Europe, the way he was training and everything. He never
even saw an oval except for
Phoenix before this.

Indeed, Rossi decided at


age 10 he wanted to be an F1
driver. He left California for
Europe six years later and
spent a frustrating time
bouncing around as a test
driver.
But his options had grown
cold, and when Bryan Herta
needed a miracle to remain in
IndyCar, he signed Rossi and
merged his team with Andretti Autosport. That partnership gave Rossi four teammates to work with at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and
the 24-year-old California native needed help from all of
them to make Sundays win
possible at the centennial
edition of The Greatest Spectacle In Racing.
Weve had our struggles.
Its been a new experience for
me, said Ro ssi. Weve
worked very hard every day
to try to improve and get
things better. Its just a huge
testament to the great people
I have around me.
Rossis win allowed the
long-suffering Andretti family
to celebrate in the biggest
race of their storied careers
and it left the top drivers in
the field fuming over Rossis
good fortune.
Rossi, a 66-to-1 long shot,
stretched his final tank of gas

90 miles to cycle into the lead


as others had to duck into the
pits for a splash of fuel in the
waning laps. He was sputtering on the final lap, working
h i s c l u t ch a n d g e t t i n g
screamed at by Herta to conserve fuel. He made it
barely.
His victory celebration
came only after his Honda
was towed in so he could
climb out to take that sweet
sip of milk.
I have no idea how we
pulled that off, he declared.
The only actual site of an
oval that Id ever been to was
Phoenix in February, Im definitely a rookie on ovals, he
said. Obviously street
courses I have an understanding about. But IndyCar is a
whole different can of worms
than anything Ive been a part
of. Its incredibly competitive
and incredibly close. You have
to be perfect all three days,
everyone around you, drivers
and teams.
Rossi didnt have the speed
of Carlos Munoz, who was
charging hard over the final
50 miles. But Munoz also had
to stop for gas and didnt
have a chance to race his
teammate for the victory,
even though Rossi was running on fumes and completed

the final lap at a snails pace


of 179.784 mph.
The Colombian settled for
second in a 1-2 finish for Andretti Autosport and for
Honda.
Munoz seemed devastated
after his second runner-up
finish in four years.
I was really disappointed
when it comes with fuel and
you lose the race because of
that, he said. Half a lap
short. What can I say?
Rossi became just the ninth
rookie to win the Indy 500
and the first since Helio Castroneves in 2001.
Although hes a relief driver
for Manor Racing in F1, Rossi
has no scheduled F1 races
and he described his role as a
reserve driver: I sit around
and pretend to look important. There is no driving involved. I drive to the track in
a rental car.
He was important Sunday,
particularly for an organization that was hoping Marco
Andretti would give them
their first Indy 500 title since
patriarch Mario Andretti won
in 1969.
Instead, Marco Andretti
never contended on a day at
least three of his teammates
were among the best in the
field.

CONCORD, N.C. (AP)


Martin Truex Jr. believes there
are more dominant Sprint
Cup days ahead, perhaps even
all the way to a championship.
Truex led a Sprint Cup
record 588 of 600 miles to win
the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte
Motor Speedway on Sunday
night, NASCARs longest race
of the year.
Its insane to think about
that, Truex said of leading
392 of 400 laps to win his
fourth career race and first
since Pocono last June. Nobody else has ever done that.
So many greats in this sport,
so many huge accomplishments.
Now, Truex is right there
with all of them.
After finishing off the victory, Truex even apologized to
Charlotte executive Marcus
Smith. Im really sorry I stunk
up the show, the driver said,
but I wasnt about the let off.
I really wanted to get this
win.
The result was a spot back
in the NASCARs season-ending Chase, where Truex made
the final four a year ago with
a shot to take the title at
Homestead on the series final

weekend.
Thats all you can hope for,
he said.
Truex has been knocking on
victorys door all season long
but hadnt gone through until
now. He was a few feet behind
Daytona 500 winner Denny
Hamlin at the end to finish
second.
Truex led the most laps at
Texas and Kansas this season,
yet came up empty.
A sign his luck had changed
at Charlotte? Crew chief Cole
Pearn said Truex was about a
lap from blowing a front tire
when he came into the pits for
a change, maintaining his
large lead.
I didnt want to tell him,
Pearn joked.
It might not have mattered
if Truex knew, especially with
the powerhouse Toyota he
had. He won the pole on
Thursday, quickly grabbed the
lead and barely gave it up.
Truex said Jimmie Johnson
passed him briefly at one
point to lead for about 100
feet, he joked before retaking
control.
Truex hopes he can build on
this effort the rest of the season.

Hamilton celebrates after


rain-soaked Monaco GP win
MONACO (AP) After
crashes, engine problems and
eight races without a win,
Lewis Hamiltons jubilation
was evident as he threw himself into the arms of his Mercedes team after winning Sundays rainy, incident-packed
Monaco Grand Prix.
Despondent Red Bull driver
Daniel Ricciardo started from
pole position and finished
second after a blunder from
his team which failed to have
his tires ready and Mexican
driver Sergio Perez was third
for Force India.
Hamiltons victory was even
sweeter because he closed the
gap on championship leader

Nico Rosberg, his teammate,


who finished a lowly seventh
after obeying orders to let
Hamilton pass early on.
Hamiltons mood was in
stark contrast to Saturday evening when after qualifying
in third place he wrote off
his chances of victory on a
track so difficult to overtake
on.
I went to have a beer with
some friends, Hamilton said,
explaining how he snapped
out of his torpor.
In the past, I would have
been (angry) all night long ... I
would have denied myself
some of the other great things
about this place.

Gay man doesnt welcome


attention from female friend
D
EAR ABBY: Im a
51-year-old gay male. I
have a sweet, dear
friend Ill call
Samantha who is slightly
older. The problem is, she
wants more than friendship.
She insists on spending
time with me and calls me
daily. She hugs me
repeatedly when she goes to
leave, and kisses my neck
or cheek whichever she
can get to.
Samantha has touched me
in a way that makes me uncomfortable. She places herself so her body touches my
hand or arm. When she does,
I quickly remove it. She says
I remind her of her brother,
but Im not feeling a sibling
relationship here. She invites
herself over and gets mad if I
tell her I have other plans.
I dont think I should have
to discuss my orientation

Dear Abby
SYNDICATED COLUMNIST

with anyone including her.


It is my personal business. I
have never done anything to
make Samantha think I have
an interest in her. I have spoken to her and made it clear
that Im not interested in a
relationship with her. I have
told her not to stop by without calling first. If she calls
and I dont answer, she still
shows up at my door saying
she called. What can I do? -END OF MY ROPE IN VIRGINIA
DEAR END OF YOUR

ROPE: You have two choices.


Because she is a dear
friend, the first would be to
make an exception in Samanthas case and level with
her about the fact that youre
homosexual and have no interest in a close relationship
with any female because you
relate better to men. During
this truth session you should
also say that her demonstrations of affection and apparent need for emotional and
physical closeness make you
uncomfortable. (Its surprising
she hasnt picked up on it by
now because of your body
language.)
The alternative is to end
this friendship without giving
her an explanation. Either
way, expect Samantha to be
hurt and disappointed, but if
you explain that being gay is
simply part of who you are
and has no bearing on her,

she may be less so.


DEAR ABBY: The year I
graduated from high school I
witnessed a horrific car accident that claimed the lives of
five of my classmates. Since
then, I have been involved in
two accidents (I was in the
passenger seat both times)
and a number of close calls.
This has caused me to develop extreme anxiety about
driving both as the driver
and as a passenger.
I work 50 miles from
where I live. Every day is
stressful because of the drive.
Moving is not an option. Is
there anything I can do to
help my anxiety? TOO
MANY CLOSE CALLS
DEAR TOO MANY: Treatment for your problem is
available. Consult your physician and ask for a referral to
a psychologist who specializes in patients who suffer
from phobias.

Putting weight on the healthy way

EAR DR. ROACH: Our


19-year-old son, who is 6
feet, 2 1/2 inches tall
and weighs 130 pounds,
wants to know if theres
anything that can decrease
his metabolism. Hes always
been thin and very active,
loves outdoor sports,
running, hiking, surfing. Hes
employed and will be
graduating high school next
month, but lately he is so
self-conscious about his thin
build that he doesnt want to
do water activities or wear
short sleeves or go shirtless
out in public. He does not
like most breakfast foods
and therefore is not a
breakfast eater. He is starting
to eat pizza only because
hes embarrassed to keep
pulling all the cheese off in
front of his friends. He loves
all fruits and vegetables,
even the green ones that
most teens dislike, but
theres not a lot of calories in
those. He doesnt do drugs,
drink or smoke; neither do
his friends. Hes an honors
student with a 4.0 grade
point average. We persuaded

many young men (and
women), improves self-confidence.

high in cholesterol. Others say

shrimp are high in the good


cholesterol, so it is not an issue. Which is correct? -- B.P.
ANSWER: Shrimp are
somewhat high in cholesterol,
and there is only one type of
dietary cholesterol. There are
many types of blood cholesterol, depending on what protein the cholesterol is associated with. High levels of
VLDL and LDL cholesterol
(very low and low density, respectively) increase risk for arterial blockages, while high
density lipoprotein cholesterol
reduces risk.
The consensus of most experts now is that dietary cholesterol has little or no effect
on development of heart disease. Long-term studies of
peoples diets show that people who eat lots of shrimp
and other shellfish tend to
have a lower risk of heart disease, although that isnt proof
that eating shrimp is good for
you. But the bottom line is
that shrimp and other shellfish can be part of a healthy
diet.

HOROSCOPE
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for
Wednesday, June 1, 2016
This year others cheer you on
when you are heading toward
yet another accomplishment.
You will want to network and
socialize to the max. You have
many goals, most of which are
dependent upon broadening
your immediate circle. You see
life from a new perspective
because you are able to break
past your natural mental filters.
If you are single, you open up to
many potential suitors. Through
a key friendship, you could
meet someone quite special.
Look to the period after summer
for this to take place. If you are
attached, you need to bring
your significant other into your
social world; otherwise, he or
she could feel isolated. TAURUS
understands you a little too well
for your comfort.
The Stars Show the Kind of
Day Youll Have: 5-Dynamic;
4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so;
1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You might feel as if you
are in a pressure cooker, with so
much to do and so much happening around you. Use unexpected events or news to reorganize your day. Confusion surrounds your efforts. It is best to
do what you must by yourself.
Tonight: Go with the moment.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Zero in on what you
want. Someone who is in a
less-than-great mood is likely to
reveal much more of what he or
she is thinking. You will need to
keep this persons thoughts in
mind when making a decision.
Tonight: You feel better and better as the night goes on.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You could be in a
position where you would prefer
to make an important choice on
your own. If you put off making
this decision any longer, you will
lose the opportunity to make it
happen. It is pretty much now
or never. Tonight: Be spontaneous, but know when to call it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Reach out to an older
friend or relative whom you
respect and who often gives
you excellent feedback. Listen
carefully to what is said, and
ask questions if need be. You
might need to weigh the pros
and cons of a risk. By tomorrow, youll know what to do.
Tonight: All smiles.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You could feel as if you
need to take action. You are
feeling pressured from outside
sources. You also are having
difficulty coming up with an
agreeable solution that makes
everyone happy. Know that this
might not be possible. Tonight:
Reach out to a dear friend.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
One-on-one relating
proves to be important in
achieving your goals. Youll
need a loved ones support as
well. An unexpected response
could throw you into chaos.

Jacqueline Bigar
SYNDICATED COLUMNIST
Once you calm down, you will
become clearer about what you
want to do. Tonight: Accept an
invitation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Let others feel as if
they have an effect. A close
friend could surprise you with a
whimsical action. You might be
stunned, but look beyond the
obvious for the purpose. Youll
want to focus on what you want
and need. Tonight: Let someone
else make the choice.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You might need to push
past a controlling person.
Engaging in this situation will
not improve any aspect of your
life. Move past the immediate
issue, and do what you need to
do. Use your high energy to
reduce stress by eliminating a
problem. Tonight: Head home
early.
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Your creativity soars
when facing financial matters
that seem rather dicey. Pull
back and give the issue at hand
a hard look. Work on being realistic, and dont get caught up in
idealistic thinking. Often you
cant see the forest for the trees.
Tonight: First return emails and
calls.
CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Be more subtle when
dealing with a family member.
When you are straightforward,
you tend to hit a disagreement.
Attempt to understand where
the other party is coming from.
Your sixth sense comes out
during a conversation. Tonight:
Visit with a neighbor or close
relative.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You might want to do
a better job of listening and
understanding what others are
saying. You could witness an
awkward reaction if you dont
acknowledge what you have
heard. You need to give more
credence to what others say.
Tonight: Hang out at home.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Focus on the long
term, and refuse to get derailed
by a different topic or activity.
You know what you want, and if
you pursue the appropriate
path, you will land perfectly.
Understand what is expected of
you, and do your best to make
it happen. Tonight: A late dinner.

Philly rebels after North


Korea invades Homefront
LOU KESTEN
ASSOCIATED PRESS

Americans are worried


about a lot of things: jobs,
health care, climate change,
terrorism, too many guns, not
enough guns. But hey, at least
we havent been invaded by
North Korea.
If that scenario has been
weighing on you, though, you
might find some solace in
Homefront: The Revolution
(Deep Silver, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, $59.99).
In this alternate universe,
Kim Jong Uns army is powerful enough to occupy parts of
the United States but make
the mistake of setting up
headquarters in Philadelphia.
(You know the locals wont
stand for that for very long.)
Youre Ethan Brady, a new
recruit in the fearless resistance led by Benjamin
Walker (not the guy from
American Psycho, Broad-

way lovers). When Walker is


apprehended, its up to you
and your ragtag rebel band to
find him and bust him out.
You have plenty of ammo,
but the North Koreans have
more.
The occupiers have divided
Philly into color-coded neighborhoods. The Red Zones are
wastelands, populated mostly
by Korean Peoples Army
troops. For the most part,
your missions here consist of
killing as many enemies as
you can and setting up safe
houses and supply depots.
The Yellow Zones are more
interesting. Theyre where the
civilians live, and while most
are sympathetic to your
cause, some are collaborating
with the KPA. In a Yellow

Zone, you need to keep a low


profile while committing
more subtle acts of infiltration, sabotage and propaganda. Win over enough
hearts and minds and your
neighbors will eventually rise
up against the oppressors.
Exploring the Yellow Zone
is a nice change of pace from
what is, at its core, a standard
first-person shooter. You can
accomplish some goals without firing a bullet, and there
are a few clever environmental puzzles, like figuring out
how to get to the roof of a
boarded-up building to hack
a transmitter.
Still, while Homefront
brings some worthwhile
ideas to the genre, the execution is sloppy. The artificial
intelligence controlling the
KPA soldiers is all over the
place: Some will zero in on
you ruthlessly, while others
will walk right past you without a shrug. The graphics fre-

Loss, accusations mark a


turbulent few days for Depp
L O S A N G E L E S (AP)
Johnny Depp seemed the picture of rock star cool as he
played guitar onstage in Portugal with his band, the Hollywood Vampires. An ocean
away, he is facing serious accusations.
A judge on Friday ordered
Depp to stay away from estranged wife, Amber Heard,
after she accused the Oscar-nominated actor of repeatedly hitting her during a recent fight and leaving her face
bruised.
Depps publicist has not responded to a request for com-

ment, and the Pirates of the


Caribbean star made no
mention of the allegations
during his Friday night concert in Lisbon.
Depp appeared on stage
puffing a small cigar and playing rhythm guitar to a large
crowd that had gathered for a
Rock in Rio concert. The
52-year-old was introduced to
the cheering audience as the
wings of the vampire by
band-member Alice Cooper.
The restraining order was
issued on the day Depps latest
film, Alice Through the Looking Glass, opened in theaters

and caps a turbulent week for


the star. His mother died May
20 and Heard filed for divorce
on Monday. On Friday, she
appeared in court with a
bruise on her right cheek below the eye, saying Depp
threw her cellphone at her
during a fight.
Heards filing alleges a history of abuse throughout her
relationship with Depp, which
started after they met on the
set of the 2011 film The Rum
Diary. A judge ordered Depp
to stay away from Heard and
not to attempt contact with
her before a June 17 hearing.

quently slow to a dead stop,


which is particularly troublesome when youre engaged in
a tense firefight.
I would be more forgiving
of the glitches if the plot was
more ambitious than a collection of Red Dawn America-under-siege cliches. There
are thousands of people in
this dystopian Philly; surely
some of them have interesting stories. The Korean forces
are so thoroughly faceless
that they could just as easily
be Russian or Cuban or Martian.
Most disappointing, I didnt
hear a single Philly accent
during the 20-plus hours I
spent in Homefront. Other
than a few familiar landmarks, the setting could be
any generic bombed-out city;
it doesnt capture the flavor
of Philadelphia at all. Now
wheres my hoagie? Two stars
out of four.

Maya & Marty aims to show


variety still the spice of life
NEW YORK (AP) If you
doubt that Maya Rudolph and
Martin Short are funny together indeed, a match made
in heaven just recall their
memorable number on the
40th anniversary special for
Saturday Night Live.
Rudolph revived her uncanny impersonation of Beyonce, resplendent in her lace
bodysuit, her tresses billowing
from a wind machine that
threatened to blow Short offstage.
Their duet was one of the
highlights of the broadcast.
Now these multitalented
stars of TV and film have partnered for a six-week NBC run
that promises to whip up the
same level of hilarity.
Debuting today at 10 p.m.
EDT, right after the two-hour
season premiere of Americas
Got Talent, Maya & Marty is
a variety show whose first outing will welcome guests Miley
Cyrus, Larry David, Jimmy
Fallon and Tom Hanks as well
as ser ie s regular Kenan
Thompson.
A day before that first show
would be taped one floor down
in Studio 6A, the two hosts
greeted a reporter in the conference room of their 30 Rocke-

feller Plaza offices as Rudolph,


casual in jeans and an oxfordcloth shirt, pulled on a sweater
against the overwrought air
conditioning.
Rudolph: Sometimes, you
gotta layer!
Associated Press: Youll be
shedding that sweater when
you go outside this building!
Rudolph (laughing): Well
NEVER leave this building!
Short (comfy in blue blazer,
plaid shirt and jeans): Is it
warm today?
Rudolph: Its supposed to be
90! Its exceptionally gorgeous
outside, which is still a treat for
me. The beautiful thing about
different seasons for someone
from L.A. is
Short (feigning impatience):
Yeah, yeah. Lets move on!
Rudolph: Sorry. I forgot I
was talking to a Canadian.
AP: You both seem very composed for this to be the day before you do your first show.
Rudolph (with a slight
shrug): I can tell, you WANT
us to be nervous. But I think
this is it.
Short: Long ago, I realized
that to be nervous or scared
did NO good when I perform.
So I zen myself into a state of
great relaxation.
