Coast to get relief from heat, not humidity
lems were forced to evacuate and utilities called for conservation as the electrical grid neared its capacity. In the nation’s biggest city, Wall Streeters sweltered in business suits on subway platforms and senior citizens schlepped to grocery stores on streets that seemed like frying pans. The mercury hit 100 degrees by 3 p.m. Wednesday after topping out at 103 on Tuesday. Security guard Jeffrey Boone said he has a window fan but it’s not up to the task of 80-degree nights or tripledigit days. “When I get up, I feel like I could shower all the time,” Boone said Wednesday as he walked to a gym from his unair-conditioned Manhattan apartment. Megan Dack coolly checked her cell phone as she waited on a roasting, elevated subway platform in Brooklyn while wearing a black dress and black opaque tights. Her retail job bars bare legs, she said. “It’s not so bad for, like, 10 minutes,” said Dack, who recently moved to the city from Cocoa Beach, Fla. “I’m used to the heat.” For those who aren’t, city officials have designated libraries, senior citizen centers and other places as public cooling centers. Plenty of people across the East were looking for oases of their own. Sue Robels’ plan? “My apartment isn’t air-conditioned, so it’s going to be museums, movies, Starbucks — anywhere else but at home today,” Robels said as she headed to Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute, a science museum. And even some who escaped to the beach found themselves escaping from it, too. Sharon Delano, of Lancaster County, Va., spent Wednesday morning in the Carolina Beach, N.C., arcade. Cool dips in the ocean were going only so far, said her mother, Carol Davis: “With that breeze blowing, you don’t know how bad you’re getting burned.” Throughout the region, there were reminders of the perils the hot spell poses. Deaths blamed on it included a 92-year-old Philadelphia woman, a Baltimore resident who was found at home where the indoor temperature was over 90 and a homeless woman discovered lying next to a car in suburban Detroit. The U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., said four midshipmen who had just completed an obstacle course Wednesday needed medical attention for possible heat exhaustion. Maryland state health officials moved all 150 residents out of a Baltimore nursing home whose operators didn’t

Delphos, Ohio report a broken air conditioner. The state learned of the home’s troubles when a resident called 911. A radio station distributed free bottled water to day laborers on New York’s Long Island, while social workers in Pittsburgh did the same for the homeless there. Transportation officials cut the speed of commuter trains in suburban Washington and New York for fear that the heat had warped the tracks. Some New Jersey train service was canceled. A 100-degree reading at noon in Trenton, N.J., broke a 17-year-old record. Philadelphia hit 100 for the second straight day, breaking a record of 98 degrees set in 1999. Newark, N.J., hit triple digits for the fourth straight day, something that hasn’t happened since 1993. Raleigh, N.C., reached 101 degrees Wednesday, surpassing the previous record of 100 in 1977. Forecasters were predicting modest relief in the coming days. The National Weather Service expected temperatures in New York to approach 90, with humidity making it feel hotter, through at least July 14. Still, Boone, the security guard, was taking the sultry summer in stride. “Time goes so fast,” he said. “Next thing you know, it’s September.”

A group of men and women including, clockwise from left, Mary Ellis, Doris Keller, Betty Conley and Marty Carder, hung out at the Delphos Senior Citizens Center yesterday afternoon playing cards and keeping cool. Keller, Carder and Ellis keep cool at home with their own air conditioning but Conley has a different preference. “I have a nice big pool at home that I take a dip in,” she said.

Beach cleaners only skimming oil off surface sand
By JAY REEVES The Associated Press GULF SHORES, Ala. — A problem lurks under the sand on the Gulf Coast, but some argue the best thing to do is — nothing. Walk to a seemingly pristine patch of sand, plop down in a chair and start digging with your bare feet and chances are you’ll walk away with gooey tar between your toes. So far, workers hired by BP to clean oil off beaches have skimmed only the surface, using shovels or sifting machines. The oil underneath is sometimes buried by the tides before workers can get to it. Now the company is planning a deeper cleaning program that could include washing or incinerating sand once the blown-out oil undersea well is plugged and the gusher stopped off the coast of Louisiana. Meanwhile, BP managing director Bob Dudley said the spewing oil from the underwater well could possibly be stopped before the end of the month, but then said it’s unlikely. “In a perfect world with no interruptions, it’s possible to be ready to stop the well between July 20 and July 27,” Dudley told The Wall Street Journal. But he added that the “perfect case” is threatened by the hurricane season. As for cleaning the beaches, some experts question whether it’s better to just let nature run its course, in part because oil that weathers on beaches isn’t considered as much of a health hazard as fresh crude. Some environmentalists and local officials fret about harm to the ecosystem and tourism. “We have to have sand that is just as clean as it was before the spill,” said Tony Kennon, the mayor of Orange Beach, a popular tourist stretch reaching to the Florida state line. George Crozier, a marine scientist and director of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, said tourism’s the only real reason to dig up the buried oil. “Buried is buried. It will get carved up by a hurricane at some point, but I see no particular advantage to digging it up,” he said. “It’s a human environmental hazard only because people don’t want to go to the beach if it’s got tar balls on it.” Meanwhile out in the Gulf of Mexico, choppy seas held up oil skimming operations all along the Gulf coast, one more day of interruption in more than week of weather kicked off by the faraway Hurricane Alex. The weather could be moving on soon. A tropical system developing off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is not expected to cause problems for the Gulf and there is better weather forecast for the weekend. That could help crews at sea attempting to hook up a third containment vessel to collect oil from the gushing well head at the seafloor. Between 86 million and 168 million gallons of oil have spewed into the Gulf since the rig Deepwater Horizon exploded on April 20, killing 11 workers. Oil has washed up on the shores of all five Gulf states, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida and the latest — Texas. BP has high hopes to clean it all eventually. Mark DeVries, BP’s deputy incident commander in Mobile, envisions a time when no one can tell what hit the beaches during the summer of oil. “That’s our commitment — to return the beaches to the state they were before,” Devries said. “We’re referring to it as polishing the beaches.” Chuck Kelly knows what a job that will be. He works at Gulf State Park and has been watching as tides bury even the worst oil deposits — slicks hundreds of yards long and inches deep — before cleaning crews can reach them. “Some oil comes in with a wave, and another wave covers it with sand,” he said. “It’s just like a rock or a shell. There’s all sorts of things buried in this sand. Now, there’s oil.” Judy Haner, a marine scientist with The Nature Conservancy, favors deepcleaning because the sand

is home to small creatures like sand fleas, which form the base of the coastal food chain. “They’re the ones exposed to (oil) every tidal cycle, and they’re living in the sand,” she said. Some creatures could be removed from dirty sand by sifting the material before washing, but others would undoubtedly be killed. The Orange Beach mayor favors a method familiar along the Gulf Coast: nourishment. After a hurricane scours a beach flat, workers use huge dredges to pump new sand from the floor of the Gulf onto the beach. That could work if the Gulf floor isn’t contaminated, too.

Kids and adults alike enjoy the Delphos Municipal Swimming Pool in Wednesday’s sweltering heat. Pool Manager Chris Wisher says the pool’s daily attendance has risen due to the high temperatures. “The numbers have definitely gone up. Our summer pass people are coming in pretty regularly and those numbers haven’t changed much but we’re getting a lot of walk-ins,” she said. “I’d say walk-ins have gone up about 120 a day.”

Lindsay Lohan’s manicure message gets attention
By SANDY COHEN The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Never has so much attention been paid to a manicure. Less than 24 hours after Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab for violating probation on two DUIs, the talk isn’t about her troubles, but about her fingernails. The 24-year-old actress sported a colorful manicure in court Tuesday that included obscene messages on each of her middle fingers. Close-up photos taken by a courtroom photographer revealed the tiny letters, which made worldwide news Wednesday on entertainment websites. Were the messages intended for the judge, who levied the harsh sentence Tuesday? Directives to the ever-present paparazzi who follow Lohan’s every move? Perhaps a silent snub to her estranged father, who attended Tuesday’s proceedings? Lohan let her middle-finger messages speak for themselves until Wednesday afternoon, when she took to her Twitter account to clarify the purpose of the defiant digits. “It had nothing to do w/ court,” Lohan wrote. “It’s an airbrush design from a stencil.” Written expression on her hands is nothing new, though. Lohan also has a tattoo on her right index finger that reads “Shhh...” Inscribing fingernails with messages is an emerging trend with the younger set, said celebrity manicurist Jenna Hipp, adding that she wrote a secret message beneath Gabourey Sidibe’s

“It had nothing to do w/court. It’s an airbrush design from a stencil.”

— Lindsay Lohan, in a Twitter Wednesday afternoon manicure when the “Precious” star was preparing for the Oscars. “Kids are just starting to play a little bit more with their fingernails,” Hipp said. “Now with Lindsay doing it, of course, it’s going to go crazy.” The look is easy to create at home, she said, with a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen topped with a coat of clear polish. Lohan’s criminal defense attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, who sat beside the actress during Tuesday’s hearing, was in court Wednesday and not immediately available to comment on the naughty nails. Ed McPherson, Lohan’s civil attorney who attended Tuesday’s hearing and sat near her in court during breaks, said he did not notice the message painted on her fingernails and does not think she meant to disrespect the court. “Absolutely not,” he said. He said Lohan’s tearful statement in court Tuesday was sincere. “I think she thinks that she’s come a long way,” he said. “Obviously she’s very upset about this.” The actress had some good news Wednesday: A probation report said her six drug screenings since May were clean of

The following individuals appeared Wednesday before Judge Charles Steele in Van Wert County Common Pleas Court:

glary charge, a felony of the fourth degree. Masters was charged with the crime after he allegedly broke into a home occupied by a former girl friend of his according to a Van Wert City Police Department investigation. Masters was given credit for 55 days he spent in the Van Wert County Jail awaiting final disposition of his case. Robert Adkins, 31, Haviland, was placed on three years of community control on a two count indictment charging him with breaking and entering, both counts felonies of the fifth degree. Adkins was also given two six month prison terms with the imposition of the prison terms deferred pending the successful completion of the community control program. Jerry A. Dominique, 45, Van Wert, was placed on three years of community control on a charge of possession of heroin, a felony of the fifth degree. Dominique was arrested by the Van Wert City Police Department after a traffic stop at which time he was in possession of heroin. Dominique will have two years of intensive supervision, must complete a substance abuse program and attend any rehabilitation programs recommended. Dominique had his drivers license suspended for six months and was ordered to pay all costs associated with his case. Judge Steele also gave Dominique a 12-month prison sentence but deferred the imposition of the sentence pending the successful completion of the community control program.

illicit drugs and alcohol. The reports showed the screenings occurred after the actress missed a court hearing and a judge imposed new restrictions, including wearing an ankle alcohol monitor. The report was released a day after the judge sentenced Lohan to 90 days in jail and a stint in rehab for missing courtmandated alcohol education classes. The report showed Lohan was taking a variety of medications for which she had valid prescriptions, and their use did not constitute a probation violation. In addition, the “Mean Girls” star got a reprieve Wednesday in another pending court case when a judge delayed a civil trial stemming from one of Lohan’s 2007 arrests. Her attorneys and four people suing her agreed to delay a trial scheduled for later this month, citing her upcoming jail sentence, which is set to begin July 20. No new date for the civil trial was set. Lohan is being sued by a woman who was in a vehicle chased by the actress and three other men who claim Lohan involved them by taking a sport utility vehicle without permission. Both sides have listed Lohan as a potential witness during the trial. Lohan must wear an alcoholmonitoring anklet until she surrenders for jail later this month. After completing her time behind bars, she has two days to report to a probation officer to begin formal probation. She is also required to spend 90 days in an inpatient substance-abuse program.

too. No one knows yet how bad it is. Only certain areas of the seabed have beach-quality sand and costs could escalate drastically for sand from farther away, said Phillip West, the city’s coastal resources manager. After Hurricane Ivan struck in 2004, it cost $9 million just to renourish Orange Beach. DeVries, the BP executive, said there is time to develop a plan because the leak isn’t expected to be stopped before August. Oil could be hitting the coast through midfall. Possible options include washing sand chemically or even heating it in an incinerator to burn off the oil, he said. The eventual solution could look like what’s going on at Grand Isle, La., where officials want to use sand-washers like those already used extensively in Canada to cull tar from vast deposits. Sand will be collected by sifting machines dubbed “Sandbonis,” a reference to the Zamboni machines used to resurface ice rinks. The sand will be dumped into a container, sifted again, and washed with 110-degree water, then mild detergent. It will be tested before eventually being replaced on the beach. No matter the solution, local officials and would-be beachgoers are frustrated and hope their favorite spots can be saved. “This is heartbreaking,” said Julie Davidson, 42, who drove down to Grand Isle from Kenner to see the effects of the spill. “We usually come down here at least for a long weekend, but there’s no reason to now. You can’t get in the water, you’re afraid of the beach. Why come?”

STATE BriEfS 2 inmates on hunger strike over medical care
By ANDREW WELSHHUGGINS The Associated Press COLUMBUS — Two inmates at Ohio’s supermax prison have been on a hunger strike for days over unrelated demands for medical treatment that prison officials said Wednesday were not warranted. Inmate Rayshan Watley has been on a hunger strike since Sunday and inmate Gary Roberts since Friday at the Ohio State Penitentiary in Youngstown, prisons spokeswoman Julie Walburn said. But both inmates have been going without food longer than that since a prisoner must miss nine consecutive meals before the prison system officially recognizes the practice as a hunger strike. Inmates who drink water or coffee or tea without sugar are still considered to be on a hunger strike, said Walburn, who wouldn’t say if the prisoners were taking any liquids. Watley claimed to a prisoners’ rights group that he was not being provided pain medication for shoulder and knee injuries that need surgery. The nature of Roberts’ medical complaint was not immediately clear. Walburn said both men have requested types of treatment regarding medical conditions that the prison medical staff doesn’t believe are warranted. She declined further comment because inmates’ medical records are shielded under Ohio’s public records’ law. A six-person team is monitoring the inmates and working on a resolution. The state would intervene with forced feeding to avoid death or serious and irreversible damage to the inmates’ life support systems or major organs, based on a medical determination, Walburn said. Hunger strikes are rare at the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, which houses about 51,000 inmates. Watley, 31, was sentenced to prison in 1997 on a felonious assault conviction out of Hamilton County. He was convicted of a harassment-byinmate charge while in prison in 2008 and received an additional six months. He is scheduled for a parole hearing in February 2011. Watley has broken prison behavior rules dozens of times at the Youngstown facility according to DRC records, with numerous instances of disobedience, showing disrespect and lying. Roberts, 31, is serving 26 years for voluntary manslaughter out of Cuyahoga County. He has also violated prison rules several times, DRC records show. The supermax prison typically houses the system’s most disruptive and violent inmates based on their behavior while in the prison system.

EarthTalk® Psychologist faces Guantanamo abuse claim
By ANDREW WELSHHUGGINS The Associated Press COLUMBUS — An Ohio psychologist now working as a college dean helped perpetrate abuse of detainees during his time at Guantanamo Bay, according to a complaint filed Wednesday with the state psychology board. The complaint by a Toledo psychologist and others alleges that retired Army Col. Larry James observed abusive interrogations and didn’t do anything to stop them. The complaint says James, dean of professional psychology at Wright State University in Dayton, oversaw abuse at Guantanamo Bay in 2003 and in 2007 and 2008 when he served with the base’s Behavioral Science Consultation Team. “Detainees were systematically abused while Dr. James served on and allegedly led the Guantanamo BSCT,” Wednesday’s complaint said. “James participated in, ordered, supervised, ratified, facilitated, acquiesced in, and/or failed to prevent, stop, report, and punish that abuse.” In one instance, the complaint said, James watched without intervening while an interrogator and three guards subjected a near-naked man to sexual humiliation by forcing him to wear women’s underwear. The complaint, researched by Harvard’s International Human Rights Clinic, seeks to have James stripped of his license to practice psychology in Ohio. James declined to comment through a university spokesman. State boards in Louisiana and Ohio, where a similar complaint was previously filed in 2008, have declined to investigate the allegations. James said in his 2008 book, “Fixing Hell,” that the Army sent him to clean up abuses in Guantanamo and later in the Abu Ghraib detention center in Iraq. He told the Dayton Daily News last fall that he doesn’t understand why the allegations continue to come up. “No matter what third party, objective review board or person, they’ve all come to the same conclusion — there’s no probable cause,” James said in September. “There’s no detainee, there’s no guard, there’s no psychologist who’s come forward and said, ’With my own eyes, I’ve seen Dr. James do X, Y or Z.”’ Complaints to state medical boards are shielded by Ohio’s public records law unless the board takes disciplinary action. Ronald Ross, executive director of the Ohio state psychology board, declined to comment. The Ohio board in 2008 “determined that no foundation exists to support the initiation of formal proceedings serving to deny Dr. James admission to the Board’s licensure examination,” according to a copy of the board’s response provided by the Harvard clinic. In June 2007, 350 members of the American Psychological Association signed an open letter to its then-President Sharon Brehm requesting an investigation of James and other members of the association who served at Guantanamo Bay. The association didn’t investigate, but in 2008 it voted to ban its members from taking part in interrogations at the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and other military detention sites where it believes international law is being violated.

STATE/LOCAL

In a recent speech to Congress, President Barack Obama said: “To truly transform our economy, protect our security, and save our planet from the ravages of climate change, we need to ultimately make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy.” Above: A wind farm takes shape in Langdon, N.D. From the Editors of E/The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: I always thought eating fish was healthy, but now I’m concerned about mercury in tuna and other fish. Are there any fish that are still safe to eat? — Brit Brundage, Fairfield, CT You should be concerned about contaminants in certain fish, including some kinds of tuna. The non-profit Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) recommends minimizing consumption of albacore (white) tuna, a large fish that accumulates moderate amounts of mercury in its fatty tissue. But other kinds of (smaller) tuna, such as skipjack (usually canned as “light”), which accumulates a third the amount of mercury as albacore, are OK to eat in moderation, though consumption by those under age seven should be limited. To further complicate the issue, some canned light tuna may contain yellowfin tuna, which has mercury levels similar to those of albacore; these products are sometimes but not always labeled as “gourmet” or “tonno”—and their consumption should be limited, even by adults. Mercury, a known “neurotoxin” (a poison that affects the nervous system), is particularly insidious because it is widespread in our oceans, primarily due to emissions from coalburning power plants. These smokestacks deposit mercury into waterways, which carry it to the ocean where bacteria convert it into methylmercury. Fish then ingest it with their food and from water passing over their gills. Generally speaking, bigger, older and large predatory fish (such as sharks, swordfish, tilefish, king mackerel and some tuna) near the top of marine food chains are more likely to have high levels of mercury than fish lower in the marine food chain. People exposed to high levels or frequent doses of mercury can suffer nervous system disorders, impaired mental development and other health problems. An April 2003 study, published in Environmental Health Perspectives, found that 89 percent of study subjects, chosen because they ate a significant amount of fish, had blood mercury levels above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) safety threshold of five micrograms per liter. Even though there are health benefits to eating fish (including the intake of healthy omega-3 fatty acids), the EPA advises that young children, pregnant women, nursing mothers and women of childbearing age limit their intake of high-mercury fish to one serving per week at most, while limiting their overall intake of any fish or shellfish to no more than two to three servings, or 12 ounces total, per week. Mercury isn’t the only harsh pollutant lurking in the ocean. Industrial chemicals like PCBs and pesticides like DDT are awash in marine food chains around the world. According to EDF, it can take five years or more for women of childbearing age to rid their bodies of PCBs, and 12-18 months to appreciably reduce their mercury levels. EDF adds that moms who eat toxic fish before becoming pregnant may have children who are slower to develop and learn because fetuses are exposed to stored toxins through the placenta. To learn more, visit the EPA’s Fish Advisories website. It includes links to individual state advisories, which have details on what fish should or shouldn’t be eaten from nearby lakes or coastal areas. Catfish, Pollock, salmon, shrimp and canned light tuna are currently on the EPA’s safe list, as they feed toward the bottom of the food chain and thus have less opportunity to accumulate mercury and other contaminants. Dear EarthTalk: What does it mean when one uses the phrase, “building a green economy?” I’ve heard it repeated a few times lately and would like to have a better understanding of the concept. — Rosie Chang, Islip, NY The phrase “building a green economy” means different things to different people, but in general it refers to encouraging economic development that prioritizes sustainability— that is, working with nature and not against it in the quest to meet peoples’ needs and wants—instead of disregarding environmental concerns in the process of growing the economy. The primary way governments around the world are trying to “green” their own economies today is by increasing investment in—and, by extension, creating jobs in— industries on the cutting edge of non-polluting renewable forms of energy, such as solar and wind power. President Obama has repeatedly invoked his vision of a green economy as a tool for helping the U.S. lift itself out of recession and position itself as an economic powerhouse in a carbon-constrained future. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, the $787.2 billion stimulus package that Congress signed into law in 2009, was chock full of provisions to boost renewable energy, energy efficiency and environmental restoration initiatives. Examples include $4.5 billion to convert government buildings into highperformance green buildings, $8.4 billion for investments in public transportation, and tens of billions of dollars more for research into new technologies to amplify existing efforts. ARRA also earmark $11 billion for the implementation of the “smart grid,” a new approach to power distribution that will bring more clean energy sources into the mix and promote energy efficiency. Infusing such huge amounts of cash into sustainability-oriented projects is one way the Obama administration hopes to “green” the U.S. economy while simultaneously pulling the country out of recession. “To truly transform our economy, protect our security, and save our planet from the ravages of climate change, we need to ultimately make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy,” Obama told Congress a few months ago. Of course, Americans aren’t the only ones bent on building a green economy. During the 1980s and 1990s, while the American government was largely asleep at the wheel on environmental issues, countries such as Denmark, Germany, Spain and Japan were already busy investing in wind and solar research and implementation. And while these nations’ ongoing efforts are nothing to sneeze at, economists point out that what is most needed is action on the part of the world’s fastest growing economies—China and India. A recent report by the consulting firm McKinsey & Company found that China— which surpassed the U.S. as the world’s largest generator of greenhouse gases three years ago — has great potential for building a green economy over the coming decades. According to McKinsey, by 2030 China could reduce its oil and coal imports by up to 40 percent and its greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by investing upwards of 1.5 trillion yuan ($220 billion in U.S. dollars) per year in both existing and new green technologies. China has begun to see the light with regard to reducing emissions, increasing energy efficiency and embracing renewable alternative energy, but it has yet to make significant financial commitments, which will be key to both warding off catastrophic climate change and building a truly global green economy.

End of the road for Ohio’s tallest bridge
By MATT LEINGANG The Associated Press COLUMBUS — Construction begins Monday on an $88 million project to replace the tallest bridge in Ohio, an aging structure similar in design to the one that collapsed in Minnesota in 2007. The Jeremiah Morrow Bridge on Interstate 71 near Lebanon in southwest Ohio is considered safe but has enough structural deterioration that it can no longer handle heavy loads. Oversize trucks carrying more than 120,000 pounds, such military or farm equipment, are prohibited. Ohio began developing plans to replace the bridge around the time the Interstate 35W bridge collapsed in Minneapolis, killing 13 people and injuring 145. The project is now on a fast track as the structure reaches the end of its 50-year life span, said Stefan Spinosa, an engineer with the Ohio Department of Transportation. The bridge is actually a set of twin two-lane spans supported by a steel truss underneath the deck. It opened for traffic in 1965, running a length of 2,224 feet — about half a mile — and rising 240 feet over the Little Miami River. It carries about 60,000 vehicles a day, serving as a major freight corridor between Columbus and Cincinnati. But repairs are becoming more frequent, and a recent inspection revealed that 80 gusset plates, which hold beams together, need to be stiffened before allowing overweight trucks to use the bridge again. The National Transportation Safety Board blamed the Minneapolis bridge collapse on an undersize gusset plate, a flaw in its original design from the 1960s. Board members also criticized Minnesota officials for allowing 287 tons of construction materials to be stockpiled on the bridge’s center on the day of the collapse. The new Ohio bridge will be supported by a series

Ride for Hunger Poker Run reset

The Ride for Hunger Poker Run for the West Ohio Food Bank originally scheduled for June 5 has been rescheduled for July 31. All bikes leave from the West Ohio Food Bank at 1380 E. Kibby St. and all bikes end at Lima-Harley Davidson, 3255 Ft. Shawnee Industrial Dr. The first bike is out at 10:30 a.m. and the last bike is in at 3 p.m. There will be a Loud Pipe Contest with a trophy for the loudest. Also, a trophy is available for the Best Custom Bike. A 50/50 drawing will be held at Lima-Harley Davidson at the end of the event, along with door prizes and refreshments. The entry fee for the poker run is $15 per rider and $5 per passenger. Registration forms available at www.westohiofoodbank.org/fundraising. Fill out the form and mail it in with your entry fee to P.O. Box 1566, Lima OH 45802; or drop off at West Ohio Food Bank.

of concrete piers, a design chosen because it is more economical than a steel-truss bridge, Spinosa said. Steel is more expensive and requires more maintenance; concrete segmental bridges have a longer life span of 75 years and with proper upkeep can reach 100 years, he said. The design, which has been used in Europe for 60 years, is becoming more popular in the United States, said Kenneth Price, a vice president with HNTB Corporation, which designed the new bridge in Ohio. “It’s highly durable, safer and a lot better-looking than the ugly old truss that’s out there today,” Price said. The new bridge will be completed in about five years. Construction is being staged so that traffic in both directions won’t have to be shut down, state project manager Dan Mendel said. There’s enough room between the twin spans on the old bridge — about 70 feet — to erect a new twolane structure in that space, beginning from the bottom and working up, he said. Once that is complete, northbound traffic will be switched to the new bridge and the old north bridge will be torn down. In the final phases, a second new structure will be built and the old south bridge will be demolished. The completed project will be wide enough to add a third lane in each direction, if needed in the future, Spinosa said. Plans also call for maintaining canoe traffic on the river during the recreation season, as well as keeping open a bike path that runs along the river, Price said.

Gov’t inefficiency: Study, study, study
By JIM KUHNHENN The Associated Press hand of regulators who want to rein in reckless activity.” The legislation, expected to face a final vote in the Senate next week, still represents a massive overhaul of financial regulations. The abundance of studies does not reflect the totality of the bill, but it illustrates the reliance the legislation places on regulators to meet the ambitious goal of preventing a recurrence of the 2008 financial crisis. As negotiators assembled the legislation, they came up with compromises that eased the bite of stronger measures, put off action on new rules or gave regulators a greater say on what restrictions to adopt and how to make them work. Some examples: — A study of how banks hire firms to rate the risk of their investment products, a substitute for actually upending the way rating agencies are retained. — A study of whether secured creditors should be forced to absorb losses when the firms they invest in are liquidated. The House would have mandated 20 percent losses, but studying the issue first was deemed more prudent. Many of the studies are simply information-gathering exercises to help determine the need for new policies, such as an instruction to Congress’

IT WAS NEWS THEN

Harvard Law’s $476M dean

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON (AP) — One talent Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan displayed in her career climb could create unique ethics questions for her as a justice: the ability to persuade Harvard Law School alumni and other wealthy donors to give hundreds of millions of dollars, more than meeting a daunting fundraising goal that came with her job as dean. The $476 million total Kagan reached for the “Setting the Standard” campaign was a record not just for her university but for all law schools. Harvard Law sought $400 million to add professors, buildings, programs and financial aid, and whether Kagan could deliver would help determine her success as dean. She exceeded the goal, raising roughly $306 million from 2003-08. Kagan’s prolific fundraising sets her apart from current Supreme Court justices. To raise that kind of money, Kagan drew on interpersonal skills honed working in the highly competitive environments of the Clinton White House and law school faculties. She did it by reaching out to lawyers, corporate executives and others from the law school and broader legal and business communities. “She raised the money basically purely on her personality,” said Harvard Law graduate David Mandelbaum, a trustee of real estate giant Vornado Realty Trust and part owner of the Minnesota Vikings football team. “She has a very pleasant way about her, and basically indicated to us that we benefited from the Harvard Law School education and those of us who could should pay back and give a future generation the kind of education we had.” Fundraising is one of the key measures by which law school deans are judged, said Stephen Gillers, New York University Law School professor and legal ethics expert. “It’s a salesman’s job. You’re selling a product and the school is a product,” Gillers said. “There are two things that make people contribute: Nostalgia as a graduate and a feeling of obligation ... and the second thing you’re selling is the work the school is doing. You want to persuade the donor, who may not be an alum at all, you want to persuade them that this school is doing important work in an area of interest to the donor.” If Kagan is confirmed to the court as expected, it’s possible she will encounter Harvard donors again, this time arguing as lawyers, plaintiffs or defendants. For example, alumni listed by Harvard as active in the fundraising campaign include Sumner Redstone, chairman of the board of CBS Corp. and Viacom. Redstone and his family are controlling shareholders in both companies. Viacom is pursuing a $1 billion copyright infringement lawsuit against YouTube and Google in federal court. A judge last month ruled against Viacom, owner of cable channels such as MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon; Viacom plans to appeal. If attorneys or law firms who donated represent clients before the court, it probably wouldn’t be considered a close enough link to force Kagan to recuse herself from the case — even if the giving helped her succeed as dean, which in turn made her a more attractive candidate for the court, said Arthur Hellman, a University of Pittsburgh law school professor and expert in federal courts and judicial ethics.

WASHINGTON — What to do about the size of too-bigto-fail banks? Order a study. How to hold stockbrokers accountable for their dealings with clients? Another study. How to ensure the reliability of credit rating agencies? Study that, too. Time after time as Congress wrestled with contentious decisions on how to re-regulate the nation’s financial industry, it opted for what often is the classic Washington punt: further study. In all, the 2,300-page overhaul of financial regulations requires more than 60 such studies, on everything from examining the presence of shoddy Chinese drywall in foreclosed houses to judging the financial literacy of U.S. consumers. “Studies can often be used as a way to delay, and can be a way for the money of the biggest banks to still have influence and undermine real accountability,” said Heather Booth, campaign director for a coalition of labor and consumer activists called Americans for Financial Reform. “They can also be used to provide thoughtful guidance for action,” she added, “and it can be used to reinforce the

Lobbyists keep auto dealers, local banks from new protections
By STEPHEN MANNING and MARCY GORDON The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The financial overhaul bill awaiting final action in the Senate includes a new regulator whose aim is to make sure mortgages, credit cards and other products from big banks don’t abuse or confuse you. But if you want your auto dealer to arrange a car loan or get a community bank to extend you a credit line, be sure to read the fine print. Thanks to their lobbying muscle in Washington, auto dealers and community banks managed to keep themselves outside the reach of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Consumer advocates say borrowers will remain vulnerable to the kind of unscrupulous peddling of financial services products that led to the financial crisis. “You’re going to end up with regulatory gaps that can hurt consumers,” said Travis Plunkett, legislative director of the Consumer Federation of America. The influence of auto dealers and community banks derives from the strength of their small-town roots. They are people who serve as Rotary Club officers and sponsors of Little League teams. Dealers By JOAN LOW The Associated Press arrange most loans for auto buyers. Community banks account for more than 98 percent of U.S. banks. The consumer bureau will write and enforce rules for financial services and products. It can ban confusing fine print on bank loan documents — but none of the other paperwork car buyers must complete. And it can punish banks for offering deceptive loans — unless they’re community banks. Auto dealers, including those that sell boats, motorcycles and RVs, won a blanket exemption from the new consumer protection bureau. Community banks scored a smaller but still crucial victory: They’re supposed to follow the bureau’s rules. But the bureau can’t force them to. That duty rests with existing federal bank agencies and state authorities. Those same agencies failed to crack down on many of the abuses that led to the 2008 crisis. That’s a big reason why a new financial protection bureau was deemed necessary. The exemptions for auto dealers and community banks — defined as those with less than $10 billion in assets — reflect their vast influence in Washington. They succeeded even as lobbying by the nation’s banking giants failed to protect those companies

investigative arm, the Government Accountability Office, to look into the number of Securities and Exchange Commission employees who leave to work for firms regulated by the agency. But several studies were designed as the middle ground when tougher measures proved politically unpalatable, such as requiring a proposed new oversight council of regulators to study if the government should set strict limits on the size of banks, rather than actually imposing them. A Senate proposal that would have required the nation’s six biggest banks to slim down to a fraction of their size had failed by a nearly 2-to-1 vote. And while some studies just kick the can down the road, the bill often demands eventual regulatory action. For example, the House wanted the SEC to impose the same professional standards on stockbrokers and dealers that are imposed on financial advisers. The Senate bill called for a study but left the SEC with no authority to then implement the results. The House-Senate compromise specifically gives the SEC power to issue rules governing brokers, with the instruction to apply the results of the study.

Near-collisions raise air safety alarms
WASHINGTON — Alarmed by a spate of nearcollisions involving airliners, the government is trying to find out why air traffic controllers and pilots are making so many dangerous errors. In recent months, there have been at least a half-dozen incidents in which airliners came close to colliding with other planes or helicopters — including in Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, Burbank, Calif., and Anchorage, Alaska. In some cases, pilots made last-second changes in direction after cockpit alarms went off warning of an impending crash. “This spring we had several close calls that got everybody’s attention, and I think that’s the thing that really keyed us into taking at look at some of the risks, try to identify what we’re missing,” Robert Tarter, vice president of Federal Aviation Administration’s Office of Safety-Air Traffic Organization, told employees in a conference call kicking off the new safety effort. Just last week, a United Airlines flight waiting to land at Reagan National Airport near Washington came within less than a mile of a Gulfstream business jet that was climbing after taking off from another nearby airport. The United pilot can be heard on an air traffic control recording saying to his controller, “That was close,” according to Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., a passenger on the United flight who has listened to the recording. The FAA has also seen a sharp spike in incidents in which planes violated minimum separation distances, a cornerstone of air traffic safety. Generally, planes are required to keep a distance laterally of about 6 miles at high altitudes and nearly 3.5 miles when approaching airports. Planes can be closer during landings. The rate for the most egregious violations of FAA separation standards rose to 3.28 per million flight operations in the nine months ending June 30, up from 2.44 in the full year ending Sept. 30, 2009. Flight operations include takeoffs, landings and when planes pass from the control of one

from the new bureau’s strictest oversight. The National Automobile Dealers Association began barraging congressional offices with phone calls and e-mails as early as last fall. As a vote neared, dealers visited Washington to plead their case to lawmakers, according to Ed Tonkin, the NADA chairman. They argued that auto dealers had been unfairly swept up in the zeal to rein in Wall Street’s excesses. They noted that dealers merely arrange most auto loans, linking customers with lenders, and are already subject to regulations on auto financing. The lenders — including the auto finance arms of automakers like Ford and Toyota — will fall under the new bureau’s authority. “This is a government overreach into private business,” Tonkin said. “Dealers are not banks, and we shouldn’t be subject to bank rules.” Yet because they act as a go-between, consumer advocates say, auto dealers fill the same role as the mortgage brokers who fed the housing crisis by pushing high-risk loans. Some auto dealers have been accused of misleading borrowers about financing terms and of pushing them into loans with higher interest rates than their credit scores warranted. radar center to another. It’s the job of air traffic controllers to keep planes separated. FAA has also been receiving about 250 to 300 reports a week under new a program that encourages controllers to disclose their mistakes. In exchange, the agency promises not to use the information to punish employees. Instead, the reports are used to spot trends. The program is modeled on a similar program for pilots. In response to these warning signs, FAA is convening a summit of employees and management, as well as other safety experts, in Washington on Aug. 17. The event will mark the third time in less than four years the agency has hosted a special meeting to address urgent safety problems. In 2007, FAA held a summit in response to concern about planes coming too close together on runways. Last year, the agency called together airlines and pilots unions in response to revelations about the training, pay, experience and work schedules of pilots at regional airlines following a crash near Buffalo, N.Y., that killed 50 people.

Spain beats Germany 1-0 in World Cup semifinal
By NANCY ARMOUR The Associated Press DURBAN, South Africa — David Villa had his chances. So did Andres Iniesta. Even newcomer Pedro got off a couple of shots. On a team filled with offensive threats, it was a defender who finally put Spain in its first World Cup final. Good luck, Netherlands. Spain might be simply too loaded — and too good — to lose. “I am sure Spain will win the title,” Germany coach Joachim Loew said after Spain beat his team 1-0 in the World Cup semifinals Wednesday night. “They’re the best team.” Loew won’t get much argument. Not after the way the reigning European champions dismantled a team that had been rolling through South Africa, winning on Carles Puyol’s thunderous header off a corner kick late in the second half. Spain has been the best team in Europe — all the world, really — for much of the last four years. It’s lost all of two games since November 2006, one a shocker to Switzerland in the groupstage opener. It clinched its first major title in 44 years by beating Germany at the 2008 European Championship. By an identical 1-0 score, no less. But injuries to Fernando Torres and Cesc Fabregas had robbed the Spanish of some of their flair, so much so that some wondered if their time had passed. This ought to put those doubts to rest. “We can say Germany wasn’t as good as we thought they’d be today,” Spain coach Vicente del Bosque said. “But that is due to the excellent performance of our team.” The score may have been 1-0 but don’t let that fool you. Spain dominated this game from the opening whistle. It pressured Germany relentlessly and had a 13-5 advantage in shotson-goal. Finally, after coming oh, so close several times — including on back-to-back plays in the 57th minute — Xavi swung a corner kick right into the scrum in front of the goal in the 73rd. With fellow defender and Barcelona teammate Gerard Pique next to him and screening Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer’s view, Puyol leaped and got his head on the ball. With one mighty swing that sent his trademark long curls flying, Puyol buried the ball into the net. As the Germans watched in dismay, the Spanish players gathered for a group hug at the edge of the box, bouncing up and down and rubbing each other’s heads. The Spanish fans, Queen Sofia included, let loose with a roar of jubilation that shook the Moses Mabhida Stadium. “We’ve shown that in the big moments we can grow even more,” Villa said. “We should have scored more goals but one from Puyol has put us in the final.” When the final whistle sounded, the Spanish players on the field thrust their arms in the air while the substitutes raced out to join them. Two teammates grabbed Villa, who has scored all but two of Spain’s goals here, and carried him on their shoulders. In the stands, Spanish fans partied deep into the night, waving flags, banging on drums and singing chorus after chorus of “Ole! Ole! Ole!” Spain will play the Netherlands on Sunday at Soccer City in Johannesburg, ensuring a first-time champion. The Dutch, who beat Uruguay 3-2 on Tuesday night, have lost in their only two trips to the final. The two teams have never met in the World Cup and their all-time series is dead even. “This is one of the greatest moments for Spain, for us to be in the final of the World Cup, it’s history,” said Villa, who remains tied with Netherlands playmaker Wesley Sneijder for the tournament scoring lead at five goals apiece. “And we want to make more history in the final.” For Germany, it’s yet another disappointment. This was the three-time champions’ third straight trip to the World Cup semifinals. Yet just like in 2006, they’re headed for the third-place game. “Right now, I really don’t feel like playing for third place,” captain Philipp Lahm said. “The disappointment is very big. We had a lot as our goal and we didn’t succeed.” It certainly isn’t what the

Germans envisioned after overhauling their team following that Euro 2008 loss. Loew brought in youngsters such as Mesut Oezil, Sami Khedira and goal-scoring machine Thomas Mueller, who was suspended against Spain after picking up a second yellow card in the quarterfinals. The newcomers infused Germany with a speed and smoothness few other teams could match and it rolled over old rivals England and Argentina by a combined score of 8-1.
Klose could miss third-place match: Germany striker Miroslav Klose could miss the third-place match against Uruguay because of injury and with it lose a chance to take over as top scorer in World Cup history. Assistant coach Hansi Flick claimed Klose has a back injury and could miss Saturday’s game in Port Elizabeth. Klose needs one goal to match Ronaldo’s record of 15 for Brazil. After Germany’s loss, Klose mentioned no injury. Flick added midfielders Sami Khedira and Mesut Oezil also have some problems but declined to give details. FIFA looks to compensate fans who missed semifinal: FIFA might compensate fans who missed Spain’s World Cup semifinal against Germany because of congestion at Durban’s new airport. Hundreds of fans had their flights delayed or turned away from King Shaka Airport on Wednesday after an increase in private jets contributed to all the landing slots being filled. FIFA spokesman Nicolas Maingot announced soccer’s governing body will definitely look at the cases of fans affected by flight problems. Even when some planes landed, they had to take off again and head to the old Durban International Airport. Attendance at Moses Mabhida Stadium was 1,800 below capacity for Spain’s 1-0 victory.

The Associated Press American League ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — David Price pitched into the eighth inning to become the AL’s first 12-game winner and fellow All-Star Evan Longoria ended the longest homerless drought of his career to help surging Tampa Bay beat Boston 6-4 to finish a 3-game sweep Wednesday night. Price (12-4) allowed two runs, including Mike Cameron’s solo homer, while scattering eight hits, walking one and striking out 10 in 7 2/3 innings. The Rays used three pitchers to get the final four outs, with Matt Garza earning his first save. Longoria’s 13th homer of the season — a solo shot in the fourth inning off knuckleballer Tim Wakefield (3-7) — was his first since June 15. Tigers 4, Orioles 2 DETROIT — Max Scherzer pitched seven solid innings and Danny Worth hit his first homer for Detroit, which swept the 3-game series. Scherzer (6-6) has won a careerhigh four straight. He gave up one run, six hits and two walks while striking out six. Robbie Weinhardt gave up a run in his debut and Phil Coke got the final three outs. Worth led off the third with a solo homer to make it 2-0. Brad Bergesen (3-6) gave up four runs and 11 hits in six innings. Blue Jays 6, Twins 5 TORONTO — Vernon Wells drove in the go-ahead run with a seventh-inning double and Jose Bautista hit an inside-the-park homer, his major league-leading 22nd, for Toronto. Wells snapped an 0-for-21 slump with a 2-out double off Matt Guerrier (1-5). Alex Gonzalez hit his 16th homer for the Blue Jays. Scott Downs (3-5) worked 1 1/3 innings for the win and Kevin Gregg wrapped it up in the ninth for his 19th save. Minnesota’s Orlando Hudson

went 3-for-4 with three RBIs against his former team, including a 2-run homer, and Delmon Young also went deep. Rangers 4, Indians 3 ARLINGTON, Texas — Michael Young homered and Josh Hamilton stretched his home hitting streak to 27 games for Texas. Young’s 2-run homer in the fifth drew the Rangers even at 3. Hamilton extended the secondlongest home hitting streak in club history with an RBI single in the first — Al Oliver hit in 30 straight home games in 1981. Julio Borbon’s 2-out single in the sixth off rookie Mitch Talbot (8-8) put Texas ahead. Cleveland’s Jayson Nix homered for the fourth time in three games. Colby Lewis (8-5) allowed two earned runs and six hits in six innings, striking out eight. Yankees 6, Athletics 2 OAKLAND, Calif. — Mark Teixeira hit a 3-run homer to help A.J. Burnett win for the first time in more than five weeks and the New York Yankees completed a sweep of the Oakland Athletics. Derek Jeter had a go-ahead single and Ramiro Pena also singled in a run in New York’s 5-run fourth inning. Burnett (7-7) pitched seven strong innings and Nick Swisher homered and doubled among his three hits against his former team. White Sox 5, Angels 2 CHICAGO — Freddy Garcia pitched six solid innings, Paul Konerko hit a 2-run double and the Chicago White Sox beat the Los Angeles Angels for their fourth straight victory. Before the game, White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy was put on the 15-day DL because of a detached muscle in the back of his right shoulder, an injury that will almost certainly end his season. Garcia (9-3) allowed one unearned run and five hits. Bobby Jenks pitched a perfect ninth for his 19th save in 20 opportunities. Joe Saunders (6-9) allowed five runs and 10 hits. Royals 7, Mariners 3 SEATTLE — Alberto Callaspo turned his failed eighth-inning sacrifice bunt attempt into a 3-run home run, lifting the Kansas City Royals over the Seattle Mariners. Callaspo came up in the eighth with the Royals trailing 3-2 and runners on first and second. Reliever Brandon League (5-6) had walked the first two batters. Callaspo then hammered a shot into the right-field seats on a 3-2 pitch, his eighth. Victor Marte (3-0), who worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh, earned the victory. Joakim Soria entered the ninth with two on

The Associated Press BASKETBALL DAVIE, Fla. — Ending months of speculation, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh made their decisions official, saying their trip through the world of NBA free agency would end in Miami.

The win sends Seattle, the defending Cup champion, into the semifinals against Chivas USA on Sept. 1. Late in the 50th minute, rookie forward Miguel Montano took a shot that bounced off the underside of the crossbar but Jaqua was right there to head it into a wide-open net. Midway through the 62nd minute, a Montano cross from the left side floated right to Jaqua on the far side of the box and his diving header beat Galaxy goalkeeper Josh Saunders to the back left corner.

Americans no longer dominating force at U.S. Women’s Open
By ALAN ROBINSON The Associated Press OAKMONT, Pa. — Maybe it’s the growth of the game internationally, or the lack of starquality golfers being groomed on American courses. Whatever the reason, there’s something missing from the U.S. Women’s Open. Namely, the U.S. When the women’s national championship starts this morning at Oakmont Country Club, temperatures will be in the 90s and the USGA’s Mike Davis estimates a few scores will be, too, in a field that includes golfers from 30 countries. The number of qualifiers from Pennsylvania, the home of Arnold Palmer? Zero. An American victory in its national championship, once all but a certainty, now would be a surprise. Cristie Kerr is the only American to win in the last five years and, since 1995, there have been nearly as many South Korean champions (4) as U.S. winners (5). By comparison, Americans won all but five Women’s Opens from 1946-1994. For every homegrown golfer like Michelle Wie who turns pro with pomp and circumstance, there are foursomes after foursomes of skilled and highlytrained golfers being exported annually by South Korea, Japan and Thailand. “There are a lot of players that can contend to be No. 1 player in the world,” Paula Creamer said. “Any given week, that bunch is just so close together.” Increasingly, that bunch includes fewer and fewer Americans. The LPGA Tour, which supplies much of the field, now appears to stand for Let’s Play Globally. Of the 27 LPGA tournaments this year, fewer than half (13) will be played in the United States, due in part to dwindling sponsorship dollars and the lack of big-name American golfers. The last American to win the tour’s money title was Betsy King in 1993. Ten of the last 15 U.S. Open winners have been non-Americans. That’s one reason why Kerr hopes her remarkable 12-shot victory in the LPGA Championship two weekends ago signals an emerging revival of the American women’s game. Just as South Korean youngsters crowd driving ranges, hire swing coaches and watch video to try to become the next EunHee Ji, Inbee Park or Birdie Kim, all U.S. Open winners since 2005, Kerr hopes young Americans will do the same to emulate her. “I would see the Nancy Lopezes and Juli Inksters, Patty Sheehan, winning these tournaments and I said, ‘I want to do that’,” Kerr recalled. “If we can touch a couple of them, maybe they’ll turn into great players in 20 years.” Palmer envisioned pro golf’s far-reaching expansion years ago. “You cannot deny the international aspects of women’s golf — it’s very important and it is very good,” Palmer said Wednesday. “The kids from Korea have come on and they will all enhance the game. Keep in mind the American girls will have to hold their own.” If they do, Kerr noted, there will be more than a handful of Americans who are truly capable of winning on tour during a given week as there are now, compared to 45 or 40 international players. Currently, only two of the top 10 and five of the top 20-ranked women’s golfers are American. And all 20 will be at Oakmont, including LPGA money leader Ai Miyazato, a 4-time winner this year. Maybe soon that charismatic figure who spurs growth will be the No. 10-ranked Wie; when

Armstrong banks on experience to cut Tour gap
By JEROME PUGMIRE The Associated Press

she won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational last year, the normally infinitesimal TV ratings for women’s golf spiked nearly four times. For now, America’s best hope is Kerr, the 2007 U.S. Women’s Open champion who will be trying to build off one of the most dominating performances in any major while her game, confidence and momentum are at all-time highs. She doesn’t rank among the LPGA’s Top 10 in driving distance, accuracy or putting, the keys to winning at Oakmont, but she understands the implications of what she calls her “monumental win.” Give her the 36- or 54-hole lead, like she owned last year at cross-state Saucon Valley before losing out to Ji, and it may be difficult to get it back. Kerr understands that the winning score won’t be anything like her 19-under at Locust Hill last month. The 108-year-old Oakmont course is about 600 yards shorter than it was for the men; by Davis’ estimates, it will play at 6,613 yards from the tee signs compared to 7,230 for the men’s U.S. Open in 2007. The 477-yard No. 9 hole, a par 4 for the men, will be a par 5 for the women but there aren’t many other changes other than slightly wider fairways.

REIMS, France — After enduring early bad luck in his bid for an eighth Tour de France title, Lance Armstrong is now banking on experience and mental strength. He knows that fortunes can change quickly in cycling’s toughest event. One day after a punctured tire cost him valuable time to his rivals — defending champion Alberto Contador of Spain and Andy Schleck of Luxembourg — the 38-yearold Armstrong had a quieter day, on the saddle at least, in Wednesday’s fourth stage. “Nothing to report. There was no wind, so, it’s really an easy stage,” was the brief summary from Armstrong’s RadioShack team manager Johan Bruyneel. But Bruyneel’s words carried a heavy tinge of relief following the carnage that turned the Tour’s opening few days into a crash-marred frenzy.

“Days like yesterday are so extreme there’s nothing you can do,” Armstrong said after completing Wednesday’s stage drenched in sweat due to the sweltering heat. “I didn’t want to have a third day in a row of bad luck, so ... nice that everybody stayed up (on their bikes).” Another veteran, Italy’s Alessandro Petacchi, won the stage. Armstrong has little choice but to bide his time now, considering his position compared to other Tour contenders. Although race leader Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland and second-place Geraint Thomas of Britain are expected to wilt in the French Alps on Sunday, Contador, Schleck and 2-time Tour runner-up Cadel Evans of Australia all are ahead of Armstrong. Evans is third, 39 seconds behind Cancellara, Schleck is sixth, 1:09 back, Contador ninth, 1:40 back, while Armstrong sits in 18th, 2:30 behind. It is an unfamil-

iar position for the American, considering how he dominated most of his seven straight Tour wins from 1999-2005. But Armstrong has been around long enough not to get fazed by early setbacks and long enough to know when to apply psychological pressure on his challengers. “I think now you just got to pick up a few guys and focus on them ... it’s easy to look at the GC (overall standings) and say, ‘Gosh, there’s 17 guys ahead of you’,” Armstrong added. “But for the most part, the vast majority of them won’t be there (at the end).” Bruyneel, Armstrong’s architect of those seven Tour wins, joined in the mind games by targeting Schleck — one of two brothers who usually compete in the race. The other, Frank Schleck, had to pull out because of a broken left collarbone following a crash on Tuesday. Bruyneel suspects that might weaken his brother mentally. Armstrong had another dis-

traction to contend with on Wednesday, this time off the bike, when an angry heckler stood outside his team bus moments after the stage and shouted accusations of “cheat” and “doper” at him in French, then argued with Bruyneel. Armstrong, who returned to competition last year following a 3 1/2-year retirement, has faced doping accusations since his first Tour win in ’99 after overcoming testicular cancer. He has always denied the accusations. Armstrong brushed off new allegations of doping by disgraced former teammate Floyd Landis on the eve of the Tour. Petacchi won Wednesday’s stage — a 95.4-mile ride from Cambrai to Reims in France’s famed Champagne region — in 3 hours, 34 minutes, 55 seconds.
Notes: Today’s fifth stage is another mostly flat ride, taking the pack over 116.3 miles from Epernay, in the heart of France’s Champagne region, to Montargis.

Baling straw from wheat fields
BY GLEN ARNOLD Ag educator OSU-Extension, Putnam County The majority of the wheat harvest was completed last week. As expected, the excessive rainfall in May and early June that resulted in head scab and other leaf diseases did reduce wheat yields and quality. Farmers had wheat discounted for both low test weight and vomitoxin. The next project in many wheat fields will be the baling the straw. Most of the straw to be baled will be used for livestock bedding but there is a portion that will also be used for mulch and even in some cases used to manufacture building materials. For those wheat fields that won’t have the straw baled, there is still some nutrient value to the straw to be used for crops to be planted next. From a pure fertilizer value, wheat straw contains very little in terms of phosphorous, but moderate amounts of nitrogen and potassium. The actual amounts of nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), and potassium (K) contained in a ton of wheat straw are 11, 3, and 20 pounds respectively. Actual nutrient content can vary based upon environmental conditions during the growing season and soil nutrient supply, so if one really wants to know the actual value, straw analysis can be conducted by any lab that processes plant samples. Looking strictly at the present cost of these nutrients, a ton of straw would be worth around $15.20 per ton and that is only as pure nutrients and not as baled straw which would be substantially higher. The straw from scabby fields can contain vomitoxin and other mycotoxins. Results from studies done at the University of Illinois confirmed that vomitoxin levels may exceed 2 ppm in wheat straw, even in fields treated with fungicide. As a result, the same caution exercised when handling and feeding scabby grain should be exercised with dealing with the straw. Get the straw tested before using it for silage or feed. The risk of contamination is much lower when straw is

Dining with Diabetes classes offered
The Ohio State University Putnam County Extension Office will be offering a Dining with Diabetes class from 1-3 p.m. July 21, 28 and Aug. 4 at the Presbyterian Church, 150 North Oak Street in Ottawa. Dining with Diabetes is a three-session class with a threemonth follow-up class. This class is open to those with diabetes, their family members and caretakers. Registration for the class is $20 and space is limited. Pre-registration is required. Participants should plan to attend all class sessions. Speakers for the class will Barbara Brahm, OSU Extension Hancock County and Kerri Knippen MPH, RD, LD, BC-ADM, Clinical Dietitian. Participants will learn how to prepare meals that are healthy, easy to prepare and taste good. Recipes will be demonstrated,

used for bedding; however, you should still avoid straw with very high levels of vomitoxin, since it is impossible to tell how much the animals will munch on the straw. Over accumulation of grain and straw dust can be hazardous to the performance of the human lungs. Protection from wheat harvest dust is important for everyone. Respiratory protection provides a barrier from the molds and mycotoxins, as well as the other particles that compose grain dust. Modern combines and tractor cabs can provide great protection from agricultural dust. The best protection outside the cab is a dust mask. There may be several dust masks available at the local farm supply or hardware stores, however not all of them are recommended for agricultural use. The best protection is provided by the two-strap dust masks that are labeled as N95. The N95 models mean that 95 percent of the smallest particles — ones that can get into the lungs where they cause damage — are prevented from going through the mask.

and participants will have the opportunity to taste each one. Participants will also learn upto-date information on nutrition, meal planning, exercise and how to understand common diabetes-related medical tests. Recipe booklets and handouts will be given to each participant. Diabetes is a very serious and costly disease, but research has shown that those who learn to manage their blood glucose (sugar) levels eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly can lower their risks of complications and lead a healthier and more productive life. Dining with Diabetes is offered statewide and is sponsored by Ohio State University Extension. The program is co-sponsored locally by Blanchard Valley Medical Associate, and Ohio State University Extension offices in Hancock and Putnam counties. Register at 419-523-6294 by July 19.

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Friday, July 9, 2010 Acknowledgement and/or rewards that have been previously denied you could be forthcoming in the year ahead. Even if it was a long wait, enjoy the inevitable victory you’ll now receive, and do something memorable with it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -You could find yourself experiencing some beneficial changes in your material affairs. You’ll have to be alert and on your toes, however, because they’re likely to come from unfamiliar sources. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Everything you experience is likely to seem far more exciting and interesting than usual, making you more experimental. You’ll have fun trying out new things or being with new people. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - You could be the first to hear about some very interesting or even juicy information, and you’ll enjoy sharing it with everybody else. It’ll make for a very interesting day. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Although it is your nature to always want to weigh and balance information before acting on it, the speed with which you decide certain issues will have a strong influence on their good outcome. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Your ingenuity and resourcefulness will greatly speed up decisions on important issues, because you’ll be able to think things through very quickly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Because your words seem to carry so much more weight than usual, you may have to be careful about what comes out of your mouth. Fortunately, you’ll be quick with your thoughts.

Cold War remix: Spy suspect swap in works
By CALVIN WOODWARD and VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV The Associated Press WASHINGTON — U.S. and Russian officials met secretively on two continents Wednesday in a likely prelude to one of the largest swaps of accused spies in decades, a Cold War remix showing the high-stakes race for covert intelligence between East and West endures in the new century. Five suspects charged with spying in the U.S. were hurriedly ordered to New York, joining five others already behind bars there, after a Russian arms-control researcher convicted of spying for the West came out of the cold of his forlorn penal colony by the Arctic Circle and was transferred to Moscow. Researcher Igor Sutyagin signed a confession even while continuing to assert his innocence, his brother said, describing that event as one in a series laying the groundwork for Russia to release him and others accused of espionage in exchange for members of an alleged spy ring broken in the U.S. Officials in neither country would confirm a swap was in the works. But the machinations — including a meeting in Washington between By DON THOMPSON The Associated Press U.S. officials and the Russian ambassador — had all the hallmarks as the two former Cold War antagonists moved to tamp down tensions stirred by the U.S. arrests. The trade could be the largest since 25 prisoners in Poland and East Germany and four in the United States were exchanged in 1985, the convicted or accused spies leaving their captors on the Glienecke Bridge between East Germany and West Berlin in the waning years of the Soviet bloc. In one of the most famous swaps, downed U.S. U-2 spy plane pilot Francis Gary Powers was exchanged for accused KGB spy Col. Rudolph Abel in 1962. In Russia, Dmitry Sutyagin said his brother, serving a 14-year prison term, was told he was among convicted spies who were to be exchanged for Russians arrested by the FBI. He said his brother could be taken to Vienna, then London, for his freedom as early as today. The imprisoned Sutyagin said Russian officials had shown him a list of 11 people who could be included in the swap. His brother said Sutyagin remembered only one other person on the list — Sergei Skripal, a colonel in Russian military intelligence who in 2006 was sentenced to 13 years on charges of spying for Britain. Sutyagin said he had been forced to sign a confession, although he maintains his innocence and does not want to leave Russia, his homeland, his brother said. “For him this all was a huge shock, totally unexpected,” his brother said at a news conference. “For the first time in all these years I see him so depressed. He is mostly upset because of two things: He had to sign that paper, basically admit his guilt, and that he has to leave the country.” Despite the tight official lid on developments, the urgency of getting defendants to New York was clear. The sooner defendants could plead to charges filed in New York, the sooner any exchange could move ahead. In Boston, U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler presided over a hearing for two defendants that lasted barely a minute and was convened, the judge said, “on rather short notice.” The defendants’ lawyers said the suspects were eager to get to New York to face charges. In Virginia, where three other accused spies were held, a hearing was canceled and they were dispatched to New York as well. Sutyagin, who worked as an arms control and military analyst at the Moscow-based U.S.A. and Canada Institute, a think tank, was arrested

Agents spoke with kidnap victim

Two missing after barge capsizes duck boat

in 1999 and convicted in 2004 on charges of passing information on nuclear submarines and other weapons to a British company that investigators claimed was a CIA cover. Sutyagin has all along denied that he was spying, saying the information he provided was available from open sources. His case was one of several incidents of Russian academics and scientists being targeted by Russia’s Federal Security Service and accused of misusing classified information, revealing state secrets or, in some cases, espionage. The United States arrested 10 people on June 27 and charged them with trying to obtain information about American business, scientific and political affairs. Prosecutors say for the last decade the alleged spy ring engaged in secret global travel with false passports, secret code words, fake names, invisible ink and encrypted radio — tools of spycraft harkening back to the decades of superpower snooping. They have been charged with acting as unregistered foreign agents. All of those arrested in the U.S. are still being detained, and the U.S. government has opposed granting them bail.

‘Glee,’ adds Emmy suspense

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California parole agents spoke to the woman who was held captive by a convicted rapist for 18 years and bore his two children but never bothered to follow up, according to a report obtained by The Associated Press. The revelation, yet another embarrassment for the state corrections department in the case, details how parole agents missed another opportunity to rescue Jaycee Dugard. It was contained in documents obtained Wednesday under the California Public Records Act. The report, prepared by the attorney general’s office, was sent to lawmakers in advance of their vote last week to settle with the Dugard family for $20 million Dugard, now 30, said parole agents spoke with her during her captivity, and with the older of the two daughters she bore to Phillip Garrido. Garrido has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and raping Dugard, who was 11 when she disappeared. Dugard and her daughters, ages 15 and 12, claimed that state parole agents failed to properly supervise Garrido starting in 1999 and did not follow up on reports and observations that might have led to their rescue. They finally surfaced last August, after living for nearly two decades in a compound in the backyard of Garrido’s house in the eastern San Francisco Bay-area city of Antioch. Previous reports from the state corrections department and an independent inspector general said parole agents had discovered one of the girls Garrido had fathered with Dugard but accepted his explanation that she was a niece. That contact was made in 2008 when the girl was 12. Those reports made no mention of any contact between parole agents and Dugard while she was being held captive. Inspector general spokeswoman Laura Hill declined to comment on the attorney general’s internal report to lawmakers. Terry Thornton, spokeswoman for the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, said she could not immediately comment. The report gave a stark outline of the reasons the state agreed to settle the family’s claim with such a large sum. In part, it said the claim is supported by a number of allegations, including “that agents saw and spoke to Ms. Dugard and her eldest daughter but failed to investigate their identities or their relationship to Garrido.” Attorney general’s spokeswoman Christine Gasparac said the allegations were made by Dugard through her attorneys during settlement negotiations with the state. She said she could provide no other details, such as when the contact with parole agents occurred, and added that the state will not try to verify Dugard’s statement because the damage claim against the state has been settled.

PHILADELPHIA — Searchers plied the murky waters of the Delaware River early today for two passengers missing from an amphibious sightseeing boat that was struck by a barge, flipped over and sank. The 37 people aboard the six-wheeled duck boat were tossed overboard when the tugboat-pushed barge hit it after it had been adrift for a few minutes with its engine stalled, police said. Most were plucked from the river by other vessels in a frantic rescue operation that happened in full view of Penn’s Landing, just south of the Ben Franklin Bridge. The duck boat, which can travel seamlessly on land and water, had driven into the river Wednesday afternoon and suffered a mechanical problem and a small fire, officials said. It was struck about 10 minutes later by a barge used to transport sludge and sank to the bottom of the river. The Coast Guard said it would search through the night for a 16-year-old girl and a 20-year-old man believed to have been aboard the duck boat. Senior Chief Bud Holden said today that passenger interviews indicate the missing were members of a Hungarian tour group. “Hope is fading, but we’re not giving up hope completely,” Coast Guard Capt. Todd Gatlin said Wednesday night. Ten people were taken to a hospital; two declined treatment, and the other eight were treated and released, Hahnemann University Hospital spokeswoman Coleen Cannon said. The National Transportation Safety Board said it planned

Arrest made in LA serial killings

to try to obtain any radio recordings, any possible mayday calls, photographs from witnesses or people aboard and other evidence as its investigators remain in Philadelphia over the next several days. NTSB member Robert Sumwalt said investigators would try to figure out why the vessels collided and “how conspicuous would that duck have been” to the tugboat pushing the 250-foot-long barge. NTSB officials also hoped to conduct witness interviews, he said. Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said divers found the duck boat in water about 50 feet deep. Crews would not attempt to recover it until today at the earliest, police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore said. There were 35 passengers and two crew members aboard the boat, Holden said. Coast Guard boats assisted by police and fire crews worked to rescue people from the water, he said. A spokeswoman for the duck boat company, Ride the Ducks, said 39 people were aboard, and the reason for the discrepancy was unclear. Bystanders along the waterfront screamed as the barge hit the boat, said a security guard who was patrolling the area. Television footage showed at least five people being pulled from the water wearing life vests in an area of the river near the Old City neighborhood, popular with tourists. Helicopter footage showed people in life vests being helped from boats onto a dock and at least one person on a gurney. Passengers who were treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital were three teenagers, three younger children and two adults, Cannon said.

LOS ANGELES — TV newcomers “Modern Family” and “Glee” are poised to bring sizzle to the Emmy nominations, while late-night talk shows could add a dash of conflict. After three years of “30 Rock” domination of the comedy series category, the sitcom may be challenged by the two freshman series that combine humor and sentiment — and nonstop music in the case of “Glee.” Nominees for the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards were to be announced early today by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, with help from Joel McHale of “Community” and Sofia Vergara of “Modern Family.” The late-night scene, beset by rivalry and personal woes, could yield dueling “Tonight Show” nominations for ex-host Conan O’Brien and the resurrected Jay Leno in the best variety-series category. O’Brien’s bid for recognition was boosted by a TBS campaign that also served to highlight his upcoming show for the cable channel. David Letterman, who turned affairs with female staffers and a blackmail attempt into high broadcast drama, has routinely garnered nominations for his show. Will TV academy voters have a change of heart this year? Marital discord may affect Charlie Sheen’s chances of repeating as a nominee for the sitcom “Two and a Half Men.” The actor has a court hearing next week on charges stemming from a domestic-dispute case involving his wife. Besides a best comedy nod, “Modern Family” could nab nominations for members of the ensemble cast that includes Vergara, Ed O’Neill, Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen, all of whom submitted their names in the supporting actor or actress categories. “Glee” stars Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele are in the hunt for lead acting nods, while the show’s Chris Colfer has a shot at a best supporting actor nomination. Alec Baldwin of “30 Rock,” Bryan Cranston of “Breaking Bad” and Glenn Close of “Damages,” all of whom claimed two best-acting wins in a row, could be nominees again. So could Toni Collette, who won a top comedy acting award last year for “United States of Tara.” Other series that might make the best-comedy series cut include “The Big Bang Theory,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Family Guy.” Two-time drama winner “Mad Men” is likely to get another nod, perhaps to be challenged by a field that includes “Breaking Bad,” “Dexter” and the acclaimed new series “The Good Wife” starring Julianna Margulies. The final “Lost” mystery may be whether its last season brings a nomination. “Saturday Night Live” is within striking distance of a record set by “ER” as all-time leading nominee. The variety show trails the medical drama’s total 124 nods by just 10. Last year, “SNL” earned 13 nominations — and this time around, it has Betty White’s gig as host in its arsenal. The Emmy Awards will air Aug. 29 on NBC, with Jimmy Fallon hosting. The ceremony, which usually airs in September, was moved up to avoid a conflict with NBC’s Sunday NFL broadcasts.

Diabetics eye obesity surgery

FREMONT, Ohio — A concrete roof partially collapsed Wednesday at a sauerkraut factory in northern Ohio, killing one worker and injuring three, authorities said. The roof collapsed as workers for B&W Welding were replacing support columns inside the small building at the Fremont Co., Police Chief Tim Wiersma said. Crews were still trying to remove the body of the man who died, 35-year-old Nate Kern. A second rescue team was called in Wednesday night to relieve the first team. Workers set up lights so they could see in order to knock down a wall to get to a room connected to the area that held Kern’s body, Wiersma said. Todd Michael, 44, was trapped in the debris with his legs pinned for about four hours before he was rescued. Wiersma said he didn’t know the extent of Michael’s injuries but that it appears he will survive. While he was trapped, Michael told rescuers how to move the concrete and deal with the rubble, Wiersma said. “He was trying to save himself,” he said. Michael was taken by helicopter to the University of Toledo Medical Center, where officials would not release his condition, citing patient confidentiality. A third B&W worker was taken to St. Vincent Medical Center, where he was listed in fair condition Wednesday night. One Fremont Co. worker who was struck in the head was taken to a hospital for treatment and released, authorities said. The cause of the collapse remained under investigation. A woman at B&W said the owner was not available to comment. No one else was in the factory at the time of the collapse, which was in a roughly 50-by-100-foot, two-room building, Wiersma said. Rescuers used a crane to lift up the collapsed roof. One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion amid temperatures that climbed into the mid-90s.

LOS ANGELES — For nearly a decade, Cristina Iaboni tried to tame her diabetes the usual way, through daily shots of insulin and other medicine. Still, her blood sugar raged out of control. So Iaboni combed the Internet for another solution and found a doctor who is testing weight loss surgery on diabetics who, like herself, are merely overweight or a tad obese in an attempt to curb the chronic disease. Scientists in recent years have discovered that diabetes all but disappears in some obese patients soon after the operation. Many were able to achieve normal blood sugar and ditch their medications. But does the benefit extend to diabetics who are not quite as hefty? Performing surgery on the not-as-obese with the goal of reversing diabetes is provocative. Iaboni’s surgeon is one of a handful of doctors around the world stretching the rules to see if the weight loss operation helps. Iaboni had gastric bypass surgery last fall at New York-Presbyterian/ Weill Cornell Medical Center as part of a study. In gastric bypass or stomach stapling surgery, the stomach is reduced to a thumb-sized pouch that holds less food. Now 50 pounds lighter, she has stopped taking diabetes medications. Her blood sugar is almost normal. The twin epidemics of obesity and diabetes are fueling an international public health threat. In the United States, one out of five people with obesity-linked Type 2 diabetes are morbidly obese — defined as 100 pounds overweight. Surgery is generally a last resort after traditional ways to shed the pounds — such as diet and exercise — fail. Even so, there are strict rules for who can go under the knife. Dr. Philip Schauer of the Cleveland Clinic is among those pushing the BMI envelope. For a study, he’s recruiting 150 overweight and obese Type 2 diabetics with BMIs between 27 and 43. Some will have surgery and their progress will be compared to those who manage their diabetes with medicine. The goal is to see which group can achieve complete remission. Smaller studies have hinted that stomach stapling and gastric banding — in which an adjustable ring is placed over the top of the stomach to create a small pouch — may work in diabetics who aren’t so fat. How does the surgery help some diabetics beat the disease? Doctors don’t exactly know, but there is some evidence that it may not all be due to weight loss. Diabetes occurs when the body can’t regulate blood sugar, and some researchers think that the rerouting of the digestive tract after the operation affects the gut hormones involved in blood sugar control.

LOS ANGELES — A one-time police garage attendant suspected of killing 10 people and stumping detectives for more than two decades was finally arrested Wednesday after police used DNA from his son to track him down. Lonnie Franklin Jr., 57, was charged with 10 counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and special circumstance allegations of multiple murders that could make him eligible for the death penalty if convicted, District Attorney Steve Cooley said. “Today is a good day,” Donnell Alexander, the brother of victim Monique Alexander, said as he watched police activity outside the South Los Angeles house where the arrest was made earlier in the day. Detectives have spent years investigating slayings between 1985 and 2007 in which the killer targeted young black women and one man. The attacker was dubbed the “Grim Sleeper” because he apparently took a 14-year hiatus from his crimes, from 1988 to 2002. The victims were shot, strangled or both, usually after some kind of sexual contact. Several were prostitutes. Neighbors said Franklin talked openly about his encounters with local prostitutes, who he would often bring to a camper in his backyard. They also said he would show off nude photos he took of the women. The break in the case came after Franklin’s son was arrested and swabbed for DNA, said Alexander, who was given a briefing on the case by robbery-homicide detectives. Using a controversial technique known as a familial DNA search, the sample came back as similar to evidence in the serial killings, leading police to investigate relatives of the man who was arrested. Detectives later swabbed a cup used by Lonnie Franklin Jr. at a restaurant and confirmed his DNA matched that in the serial killings, Alexander said, citing his briefing by police. Two police officials confirmed Alexander’s account. Cooley believes the “Grim Sleeper” case was the first time a familial DNA search has been used successfully in California. State Attorney General Jerry Brown said the match came when an unspecified family member of Franklin was swabbed after getting convicted on a felony weapons charge. Los Angeles city personnel director Maggie Whalen said Franklin was hired in 1981 as an attendant at a Los Angeles Police Department garage, where he helped work on cars. The following year, he moved to the sanitation department, where he worked a number of jobs before becoming a refuse collector. He left city employment in 1989.

Answers to Wednesday’s questions: The cantaloupe was named after the pope’s summer residence of Cantalupo. Mexican general Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna introduced chicle — the main ingredient in chewing gum — to the United States while he was living in exile in New York City more than 30 years after he guaranteed himself a place in American history by storming the Alamo. He enjoyed chewing unflavored chicle and brought it north with him.
