Rescue work ends after Indian train wreck kills 68
By RAJESH KUMAR SINGH The Associated Press FATEHPUR, India — Railway workers today began clearing the mangled wreckage of a derailed passenger train in northern India after ending a rescue operation that found 68 bodies. Throughout the day, anxious relatives searching for missing family members had thronged to the site of Sunday’s crash as bodies wrapped in white shrouds lay in rows on the ground next to the train. By late this afternoon, rescue teams had finished searching the twisted coaches for victims and survivors and the repair work had begun amid pouring rain. At least 239 passengers were injured when the Kalka Mail jumped the tracks near Fatehpur in Uttar Pradesh state, Brij Lal, a senior state police official said. The main governmentrun hospital in Fatehpur was overrun by grieving relatives
searching for their kin among the injured and the dead. “I was listening to music on the upper berth, when there was a loud bang followed by a thud. I was flung from my seat and hit my head against the side of the coach,” passenger Subajit Ghosh, 20, said at a hospital, his head swathed in bandages. Lal said the dead included two Swedish nationals. Another Swedish passenger was injured. See TRAIN, page 2
Death toll in cruise ship sinking at 41
By ANDREY BULAY The Associated Press KAZAN, Russia — Rescuers scoured the wide waters of a Volga River reservoir today, searching with dimming hopes for survivors after an aged, overloaded cruise ship sank amid wind and rain. Forty-one people were confirmed dead, but more than 80 remained missing. Emergencies Minister Sergei Shoigu was quoted by Russian news agencies as saying today that 208 people were believed to have been aboard the Bulgaria when it sank Sunday afternoon. That’s nearly 75 percent more than the 120 the boat was licensed to carry, officials said. As of mid-afternoon, 41 bodies had been found, including five children, according to the regional Emergencies Ministry office. The ministry said 80 survivors were rescued, all of them Russian; it was unclear whether any foreigners were

aboard. River cruise boats such as the Bulgaria are highly popular among Russian holiday-makers, conducting cruises ranging from a few days to two weeks. Igor Panishin of the regional Emergencies Ministry was quoted by the state news agency RIA Novosti as saying survivors reported the ship was leaning to starboard as it made a turn and a wave washed over the deck. It sank within about eight minutes, he said. The agency cited local investigators as saying the ship was listing even when the voyage began, possibly because of unemptied sewage tanks, and that the port engine was malfunctioning. The ship sank about three kilometers (two miles) from shore in about 20 meters (65 feet) of water, officials said. Many children were aboard the boat, and Russian news reports quoted survivors as saying about 50 children had gathered in the ship’s enterSee CRUISE, page 2

Man crashes into house
The Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Van Wert Post is investigating an injury crash that occurred at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Sunday on Race Street near Central Avenue in the city of Van Wert. A 1995 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Gabriel Spradlin, 26, of Rockford was southbound on Race Street at a high rate of speed when he traversed the C. F. & E. railroad tracks at Jackson Street. He went airborne, continued southbound losing control as he crossed Central Avenue going off the left side of the roadway. He struck a power pole and then a house. Spradlin was extricated from the vehicle by Van Wert Fire and EMS personnel and transported to Van Wert County Hospital. He was later transported to Parkview Memorial Hospital by Van Wert EMS. Spradlin was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash and trapped for a short time period. The Highway Patrol was assisted on scene by Van Wert Fire and EMS and the Van Wert Police Department. The crash is still under investigation. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the accident.

Most of Ohio melting under excessive heat
STATE/LOCAL Ohio police say enforcing Board texting ban may be tough
LIMA (AP) — Some law enforcement officers in Ohio say they’re concerned about the difficulty of enforcing a texting-while-driving ban if such a measure becomes state law. The Ohio House has approved a bill that would make it a misdemeanor to write, read or send text messages while driving, sending the measure to the Senate. Many officers say such behavior can be distracting for drivers and threaten others’ safety but that cracking down on it could prove to be complicated and timeconsuming, the Lima News reported this weekend. “Just because we cite someone for it, we still have to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt in court,” Lima Police Chief Kevin Martin said. He said it could be tough to show a driver was texting at the exact moment an officer spotted the violation, and collecting the required evidence would take more time. “We could have hours tied up in each minor misdemeanor,” he said. It also may be difficult to determine whether a person holding a cell phone is texting, Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon said. Lima Law Director Tony Geiger said police likely would need a search warrant to analyze a driver’s phone. Then the issue might become how much time authorities want to devote to prosecuting the minor violation, which would have maximum fine of $150 under the bill, Geiger said. “I’m skeptical on a new law because of problems enforcing it,” Allen County Sheriff Sam Crish told the newspaper. “I’m just not sure by making a new law that will take care of the problem,” Crish said. He said focusing on violations of existing laws might make more sense because of the time and effort required to get a search warrant for cell phone to help prove a texting violation. But simply putting the law in place might improve safety, Geiger said. “I think there will be a lot of people who will make every effort to follow it because it’s a law and that’s a good idea,” he said. The bill was co-sponsored by Rep. Nancy Garland, a New Albany Democrat, and Rep. Rex Damschroder, a Fremont Republican. If it becomes law, Ohio would join at least 30 states and the District of Columbia with a texting ban.

Ohio gas down a whole penny
CINCINNATI (AP) — An excessive heat warning is posted for Cincinnati and the surrounding county because of conditions that could make it feel like 104 degrees. A less severe heat advisory for today spreads north all the way to the Lima area and Greater Columbus. The National Weather Service says the combination of extreme heat and humidity carries a risk for heat stroke and other heat illnesses in Hamilton County, which includes Cincinnati. The forecasters say anyone spending time outdoors should wear lightweight, loose clothing and drink lots of water.

Tanzania trip prompts Ohio woman to work in Africa
COLUMBUS — The new Ohio public schools superintendent expected to be chosen this week will not be directly appointed by Gov. John Kasich, but he will help the Republican carry out an ambitious education agenda that includes expanding school choice and crafting a new formula for divvying state tax dollars among districts. The 19-member Ohio Board of Education convened its multi-day monthly meeting Sunday in anticipation of conducting interviews of the two finalists for the superintendent’s job today. The board’s decision and vote are expected Tuesday. The panel of both elected and appointed members is choosing between Reynoldsburg superintendent Stephen Dackin and education consultant Robert Schiller. The director of Kasich’s Office of 21st Century Education, Robert Sommers, also was named a finalist but had to drop his bid due to ethics restrictions. The new superintendent will replace Deborah Delisle, who resigned under pressure this spring. Delisle got the job while Democrat Ted Strickland was governor. Kasich spokeswoman Connie Wehrkamp said Kasich has met with both Dackin and Schiller but respects the state school board’s right to make the final selection. “This is a very important decision for the state and it is reasonable for the governor to work closely with the independent Department of Education and the board to decide who the next superintendent will be,” Wehrkamp said. “But at the end of the day he understands the decision rests with the Board of Education.” Board president Debe Terhar said either candidate for the job will be up to the challenge of revamping Ohio’s educational offerings. “I’m looking for someone who is reform-minded and willing to shepherd through the changes that need to be instituted,” Terhar said. “It’s all encompassing. It’s what I campaigned on, which was helping to bring about changing the status quo. We’ve done things for so long the same way, with the same result. It’s time to do something different.” State lawmakers have thrown out Strickland’s so-

called evidence-based model for determining district funding levels, a system based on the latest research on such issues as student-teacher ratios, classroom approaches and effective training. The new governor now wants to come up with a fresh approach. The budget Kasich signed on June 30 contains new teacher evaluation requirements that he says are similar to provisions of both Senate Bill 5, the divisive collective bargaining overhaul that’s facing a repeal effort, and Ohio’s application for Race
to the Top, President Barack Obama’s quality-schools competition. “The governor wants the new superintendent to put kids first, help them be successful at whatever it is they want to do, and work in partnership with parents and teachers to make this happen,” Wehrkamp said. Barbara Mattei-Smith, the governor’s assistant policy director of education, has scheduled a series of meetings around the state starting today to talk to educators about school funding. According to an invitation distributed to teachers and school administrators Friday, she will be meeting with teachers, principals, superintendents and treasurers to come up with the guiding principles for the new system. Each meeting is expected to include a one-hour discussion with teachers and a one-hour discussion with principals. “Gov. John Kasich has committed to developing a new school funding formula with the goal that funds will reach the classroom,” the invitation said. Dale Butland, a spokesman for Innovation Ohio, a liberal policy think tank, said that before Friday the state’s largest teachers’ unions had not been included in the process.

Obama, lawmakers to meet again as debt clock ticks
By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press WASHINGTON — With pressure continuing to build but no breakthroughs in sight, budget bargaining between President Barack Obama and top lawmakers resumes today at the White House, with both sides hoping to slash the deficit as the price for permitting the government to borrow more than $2 trillion to pay its bills. In a rare Sunday meeting in the White House Cabinet Room, Obama continued to push for a “grand bargain” in the range of $4 trillion worth of deficit cuts over the coming decade, but momentum is clearly on the side of a smaller measure of perhaps half that size. Obama continues to press for revenue increases as part of any agreement but Republicans remain stoutly opposed — despite some private hints to the contrary last week by House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. Obama holds a news conference today morning. The third White House meeting since Thursday is slated for the afternoon. An Aug. 2 deadline looms to stave off a potentially disastrous first-ever default on U.S. obligations, but the two sides seem no closer than they were when Republicans withdrew from talks led by Vice President Joe Biden more than two weeks ago, citing an impasse on taxes. Last week, Boehner and Obama had private talks that led Democrats to believe the House speaker was willing to entertain revenue increases as part of a full overhaul of the tax code later this year in exchange for Democrats agreeing to stiff curbs on the growth of Medicare and lower increases in Social Security cost-of-living adjustments. But Boehner recoiled and abandoned the idea Saturday night in a move that rattled the talks. Sunday’s sometimes testy session was shorter than some had anticipated and it’s clear neither side is willing to budge on taxes. Democrats say tax increases are a prerequisite for big spending cuts; Republicans rule out the idea unless taxes are lowered elsewhere. “The whole thing is off the rails,” said a Democratic official close to the talks, requiring anonymity to speak candidly. Today’s meeting will feature a discussion of tentative agreements reached in discussions led by Vice President Joe Biden. They include cuts to farm subsidies, student aid, federal workers’ pensions and domestic agency budgets,

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Kent Mechels spent the last three Christmases away from his family plowing snow off Minnesota roads so people could drive safely. It was a hardship he accepted as part of the job, he said. But Mechels’ latest sacrifice — getting laid off during a state government shutdown now entering its second week — has him thinking about quitting. “I’m looking at other state agencies in different states right now. I’ve lived in Minnesota my entire life. I may be leaving,” said Mechels, a single father from Rochester. “When the state government treats their employees like this, I don’t need to be part of it.” Many of the 22,000 public employees out of work in Minnesota’s budget impasse say they will get through the extended layoff by tapping into personal savings, relying on a spouse’s income or unemployment checks, and making household spending cuts. But others are looking for new jobs, creating the potential for a brain drain that would be one more negative from the nation’s longest state government shutdown in a decade. Erik Pakieser, an emergency planner for the state transportation department, took to Twitter soon after the shutdown to shop his services for what he hopes could be a better-paying job in the private sector. The state stands to lose an employee it spent a lot of money training, the St. Anthony Village man said. “If I get a better job, great. If I don’t, I’m going to get my state job back eventually,” he said. “Who knows? Maybe there’s a silver lining in all this.” Isaias Petros, of Minneapolis, works in land management with the Department of Transportation and said he doesn’t have much money saved to get through the shutdown. Though he is single with no children, Petros said he needs at least a temporary job to pay back some student loans. “I was not ready for this,” he said, adding that he was actively looking for “anything” that could help him support himself. Not everyone is job hunting. Brent Anderson, who manages Whitewater State Park in southeastern Minnesota, has a wife who works and said he simply plans to cut back on expenses. Anderson is spending more time volunteering at the Goodview Fire Department, catching up on paperwork and thinking about painting his house trim. One of the biggest shutdown casualties in Anderson’s family is his teenage daughter. She was scheduled to take her driver’s license test last Tuesday and was excited about getting behind the wheel. Now she’ll have to wait because the state is not offering driving tests during the shutdown. The workers’ money woes contrast sharply with the position of state lawmakers, who are still eligible for their salaries during the shutdown — although some have chosen not to take them. And while their unions are a traditional power base for Democrats and support for Dayton remains strong, it’s not universal.
US suspends military aid to Pakistan
By DOUGLAS BIRCH Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s decision to suspend $800 million in aid to the Pakistan’s military signals a tougher U.S. line with a critical but sometimes unreliable partner in the fight against terrorism. President Barack Obama’s chief of staff, William Daley, said in a broadcast interview Sunday that the estranged relationship between the United States and Pakistan must be made “to work over time,” but until it does, “we’ll hold back some of the money that the American taxpayers are committed to give” to the country’s powerful military forces. The suspension of U.S. aid, first reported by The New York Times, followed a statement last week by Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, that Pakistan’s security services may have sanctioned the killing of Pakistani journalist Saleem Shahzad, who wrote about infiltration of the military by extremists. His battered body was found in June. The allegation was rejected by Pakistan’s powerful military establishment, including By BRADLEY KLAPPER and MATTHEW LEE Associated Press the Inter-Services Intelligence Agency, which has historic ties to the Taliban and other militant groups and which many Western analysts regard as a state-within-a-state. George Perkovich, an expert on Pakistan with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, said Mullen’s comments and the suspension of aid represent “the end of happy talk,” where the U.S. tries to paper over differences between the two nations. Daley, interviewed on ABC’s “This Week,” suggested the decision to suspend military aid resulted from the increasing estrangement between the U.S. and Pakistan. “Obviously there’s still a lot of pain that the political system in Pakistan is feeling by virtue of the raid that we did to get Osama bin Laden,” Daley said. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters traveling with him to Afghanistan on Saturday that the U.S. would continue to press Pakistan in the fight against extremists, including al-Qaida’s new leader, Ayman al-Zawahri. “We have to continue to emphasize with the Pakistanis that in the end it’s in their interest to be able to go after these targets as well,” Panetta
among others. Republicans say the Biden group identified more than $2 trillion in cuts, but Democrats put the true figure significantly lower — in large part because many of their concessions on spending cuts relied on the assumption Republicans would accept some new tax revenues. But the Biden group was bitterly divided over taxes, as Republicans like House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia repulsed Democratic demands to shut down tax breaks for oil and gas companies and deductions enjoyed by the wealthy. And Republicans resisted Democratic attempts for a mechanism to guarantee the Pentagon would contribute to cuts. “The Speaker told the group that he believes a package based on the work of the Biden group is the most viable option at this time for moving forward,” said a Boehner spokesman. Sunday’s meeting featured some tense exchanges, officials briefed on the talks said, as Democrats accused Republicans of being inflexible. And officials briefed on the talks said Obama sharply rebuked Republicans for saying there’s no time for a “grand bargain” blending new revenues with big spending cuts — including curbs to Social Security and Medicare.
US, Mideast mediators meet with low expectations
WASHINGTON — The United States and other Mideast mediators meet today in Washington, with the Israeli-Palestinian peace process in shambles and an upcoming U.N. confrontation over whether to admit Palestine as an independent country only likely to make the decades-old deadlock even more intractable. Modest goals have been set by the U.S., the United Nations, Russia and the European Union. Foremost is getting Israeli and Palestinian negotiators back to the table for direct talks after nine months of inaction. Even that seems an unlikely outcome from today’s meeting. The mediators “will come together and will compare notes about where we are and plot a course forward,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said last week. Despite furious U.S. efforts, American and other officials say neither the Israelis nor the Palestinians appear willing to commit to new discussions based on parameters that President Barack Obama outlined in a May speech: two states based on the territorial boundaries that existed before the 1967 Mideast war, with some territory swaps to account for population shifts and security concerns. Repeated visits to Israel and the West Bank last month by U.S. envoys have produced no tangible results. And this past week, the new U.S. special Mideast peace envoy, David Hale, and White House adviser Dennis Ross pressed the chief Palestinian peace negotiator on one of the biggest points of contention, a Palestinian plan to win U.N. recognition as an independent state. Israel and the U.S. support an eventually independent Palestine but oppose the attempt to establish one without negotiation with the Jewish state. The administration has tried to get the Palestinians to drop the idea, but negotiator Saeb Erekat said immediately after Wednesday’s talks that the Palestinians were more determined than ever to win recognition when the U.N. General Assembly meets in September. Erekat said those opposing the Palestinians need to “rethink their position.” The measure probably will pass, providing the Palestinians with increased
said. “And in the discussions I’ve had with them, I have to say that, you know, they’re giving us cooperation in going after some of these targets. We’ve got to continue to push them to do that. That’s key.” The U.S. has long been unhappy with Pakistan’s evident lack of enthusiasm for carrying the fight against terrorists to its tribal areas, as well as its covert support for the Taliban and anti-Indian extremist groups. But tensions ratcheted up in January, when CIA security contractor Raymond Davis shot and killed two Pakistanis who he said were trying to rob him. They spiked in May, when U.S. forces killed bin Laden during a covert raid on a home in Abbottabad, the location of Pakistan’s military academy. In the U.S., there was anger at the possibility that some Pakistan officials had harbored the terrorist leader. In Pakistan, there was outrage that the U.S. operation had violated its sovereignty. The $800 million in suspended aid represents 40 percent of the $2 billion in U.S. military aid to Pakistan, and according to the Times includes money for counterterror operations. diplomatic power, even though independence still will need the U.N. Security Council’s approval. The U.S. would surely veto any such resolution. Speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss confidential meetings, American officials invariably offered negative assessment of the overall atmosphere surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. They described it as gloomy and depressing, with one likening the recurrent problems and lack of solutions to a “Groundhog Day” scenario, referring to the movie in which the same day is repeated over and over. And until last week, the United States wasn’t even sure it made sense to meet with the other mediators, believing there was nothing new to discuss. Eventually the administration relented to European calls to get together, but little of substance is expected. The meeting itself is quite limited, with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton planning to hold a working dinner and then issue a written statement.

Jays ousted from ACME tourney; Cougars still alive
By JIM METCALFE and BRIAN BASSETT ST. HENRY — St. John’s came into the St. Henry ACME District baseball tournament as the number 1 seed from Van Wert, while the Cougars were the number 2. After a Saturday and Sunday of doubleheader action, the Blue and Gold went packing, while the Cougars remain alive in the losers’ bracket. The Blue Jays could not recover from a tough loss to MAC colleague Minster Saturday and fell 10-1 to Wapakoneta on a brilliant Sunday afternoon at the Wally Post Athletic Complex, while the Cougars fell into that losers’ bracket on the heels of a 10-0 5-inning loss to Minster. After the Blue Jays (104) left leadoff batter Tanner Calvelage on third (hit by a pitch from starter Marshall Gerlach, stolen base, 1-out fly ball to right by Jordan Bergfeld), the Redskins (193) jumped all over St. John’s starter Bergfeld in the bottom of the first. Three walks loaded the bases with two outs and singles by Gerlach, Dominic Campos and Andrew Hines (2-runner) scored four runs. The Jays again got their leadoff batter on in the second, this time Cody Kundert (infield hit and throwing error) getting to second but could get no farther. Wapak added a pair in the second against reliever Ryan Buescher on two walks and two hits, the biggest a 2-run double to right by leftyswinging Chandler Kaeck, The Jays scored their lone — unearned — tally in the third against Gerlach (7 innings, 5 hits, 1 walk, 8 Ks; 95 pitches, 60 strikes). Leadoff batter Ryan Densel got on via an error, swiped second and came around on a 2-out run-scoring knock by Buescher. Troy Warnecke singled to left but the Jays stranded both. For the fourth inning in a row, the Jays got their leadoff batter aboard in the fourth: a double to left by Alex Wehri. He got to third on a bounceout by Brice Schulte but could not score. Two more touched base in the Redskin fourth to make it 8-1 on four hits, with RBIs by Kaeck (bases-loaded single) and Gerlach (bases-loaded walk). The Jays missed out after loading the bases with no outs in the sixth: hit batter (Warnecke), single to left (Kundert; 2-for-3) and walk (Wehri) but a strikeout and inning-ending twin-killing short-circuited the threat. The Redskins tacked on their final two tallies in the sixth on a walk, a big error, an RBI bounceout (Dominic Campos) and a wild pitch. “Jordan was sore and so were some others. Plus, we had a carryover from Saturday’s loss where we played well for 6 1/2 innings and let it get away from us,” Jays coach

Ryan Warnecke noted. “We played hard but always made the big out instead of getting the big hit. Still, we played a lot of extra baseball this summer and got a lot of kids playing time that will be playing a lot in the spring.” The Cougars (8-12), coming off Saturday’s defeat of Wapakoneta, were shut down totally by Minster right-hander Devin Poeppelman, who threw a 2-hit shutout in a 10-0 5-inning contest. He walked two and fanned eight. The Cougars had chances in the first, third and fourth frame.

Wambach, Solo key to riveting US win over Brazil
By NANCY ARMOUR The Associated Press DRESDEN, Germany — Any time she caught a teammate’s eye, Abby Wambach held up one finger. It had nothing to do with the shrinking numbers on the clock. “I kept saying, ‘All it takes is one chance. It takes one second to score a goal’,” Wambach explained. Regulation. Overtime. Stoppage time. Penalty kicks. Through it all, the Americans never lost faith they’d pull it out. Did they ever. The Americans advanced to the semifinals with one of the most riveting victories in the history of the World Cup — men’s or women’s — beating old foe Brazil 5-3 in penalty kicks after a 2-2 tie. When Ali Krieger hammered the last penalty into the bottom left corner of the net, the Americans let loose with a raucous celebration that soon spread back to the United States. Highlights of the game even got time on the Jumbotron at Yankee Stadium. “There’s something to be said about this team. This American attitude of pulling everything together and bringing out the best performance in each other is contagious,” said U.S. coach Pia Sundhage, a Swede. “I am very, very proud and I’m very, very happy to be the coach for the U.S. team.” For Brazil, it is yet another disappointment at a major tournament. And this one is sure to sting more than any others because Marta had it won for the Brazilians, scoring her second goal of the game in the second minute of overtime for the 2-1 lead.
allowed three runs in six innings. Leo Nunez pitched a perfect ninth for his 25th save. American League NEW YORK — James Shields and B.J. Upton made bad throwing errors that let Robinson Cano score the only run, sending CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees to a 1-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday. A day after Derek Jeter got five hits, including No. 3,000, All-Stars Shields and Sabathia (13-4) staged a classic pitchers’ duel, matching zeros until the bottom of the seventh inning. Cano led off with a single and Jorge Posada’s pop to shallow center was gloved on the run by Upton, who wound up and rocketed a throw well over first baseman Casey Kotchman’s head. Cano moved to third and took a big lead. Shields (8-7) tried to pick him of; the ball went wide and Cano trotted home. Sabathia finished a 4-hitter for his 12th career shutout as New York won 2-of-3 against Tampa Bay. Rangers 2, Athletics 0 ARLINGTON, Texas Matt Harrison pitched 6-hit ball into the eighth inning, Adrian Beltre homered in his third consecutive game and the Rangers extended their winning streak to a season-best seven games. Harrison (7-7) struck out seven and walked one in 7 2/3 innings. Neftali Feliz completed the 6-hitter by working a perfect ninth for his 18th save in 22 chances. After Josh Hamilton drew a 2-out walk in the sixth, Beltre sent a 1-0 pitch from Trevor Cahill (8-7) into the seats in left-center for his 19th homer. Cahill gave up five hits and walked two in 7 2/3 innings. Angels 4, Mariners 2 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Alberto Callaspo hit a tie-breaking 2-run double in the eighth inning, Dan Haren came within one out of his second straight complete game and the Angels rolled into the All-Star break with their 14th victory in 17 games. Mark Trumbo homered in his third straight game for the Angels, who swept the 4-game series. After Haren (10-5) and Felix Hernandez dueled through the first seven innings, Callaspo drove a 2-out pitch from David Pauley (5-3) into the gap, scoring Torii Hunter and Howie Kendrick. Angels manager Mike Scioscia pulled Haren with a runner on second and All-Star closer Jordan Walden struck out Franklin Gutierrez for his 20th save.

Wapak notched a run in the bottom of the fifth when Brandon Schreiber reached on error and scored on a fielder’s choice. Alex Cook led off the Redskin sixth with a single, followed by a Knoch RBI double. Josh Apple scored Knoch on a sacrifice fly before a Schreiber walk chased Henry from the game. Andrew Todd came on in relief for the Cougars before a Kaeck double scored Schreiber, cutting the Redskin deficit to five runs. Todd forced a fly out to end the inning. Wapak cut into the Cougar lead again in the seventh when Campos and Cook forced back-to-back walks, followed by a Knoch 2-run triple. Knoch scored on a passed ball, cutting the Cougar lead to 10-8. The score would not change (Continued from Page 6) Kameron Loe (3-7) got the win for the Brewers (49-43), who won 3-of-4 in the series.
Phillies 14, Braves 1 PHILADELPHIA — Raul Ibanez homered and drove in six runs for Philadelphia, backing eight strong innings by Cole Hamels. Hamels (11-4) allowed three hits and one run. The left-hander allowed just one hit after the second inning and retired his final 13 batters. John Mayberry Jr. had three doubles and drove in a career-high four runs for Philadelphia, which finished with a season-high 20 hits. The Phillies took 2-of-3 in the series and also matched the club record for wins in the first half (57), tying the 1993 team. Derek Lowe (5-7) allowed four runs and 10 hits in four innings for Atlanta. Giants 4, Mets 2 SAN FRANCISCO — Pablo Sandoval celebrated his first All-Star game selection by hitting an RBI double to extend his hitting streak to 21 games and fellow All-Star Matt Cain pitched six scoreless innings to lead San Francisco over New York. Nate Schierholtz added four hits and an RBI after being moved up to the cleanup spot for the Giants. This is the first time since 2003 that San Francisco enters the break in first place. Cain (8-5) allowed five hits and three walks, lowering his ERA to 2.06 over his past eight starts. Brian Wilson allowed an RBI double to Justin Turner in the ninth before recording his 26th save in 30 chances. Mets starter Mike Pelfrey (5-8) allowed eight hits and two walks. Nick Evans hit a pinch-hit homer for the Mets, who finished the first half at 46-45 despite starting the season 5-13. Dodgers 4, Padres 1 LOS ANGELES — Andre Ethier homered twice before heading off to his second straight All-Star game and the Dodgers earned their season-high fourth straight victory. Ted Lilly (6-9) allowed a run and four hits over five innings, helping send the Padres to their fifth straight loss. The 35-year-old left-hander struck out seven and walked two. Javy Guerra, the sixth Dodgers pitcher, worked a perfect ninth for his fourth save. San Diego’s Tim Stauffer (5-6) was charged with three runs, two earned, and three hits in six innings. Cardinals 4, Diamondbacks 2 ST. LOUIS — Jaime Garcia won for the sixth time at home and David
again, however, as Williams came on to record three consecutive outs for Van Wert, shutting the door on Wapak and recording the save. With the win, Van Wert advanced in the winners’ bracket. The winning pitcher for the Cougars was Henry, who went 5 2/3 innings, allowing four runs, two earned, while walking six and striking out one. Leading hitters for the Cougars were Cucciarre, 2-4 with a walk, four RBIs and a run scored; and Contreras, 2-4 with a walk, two RBIs and two runs scored.

Wambach scored in the 122nd minute — about 90 seconds before the Americans were to make their earliest exit ever from the tournament they’ve won twice — and Hope Solo continued her mastery of the Brazilians in the penalty shootout by batting down an attempt by Daiane. “Everything seemed to be on the safe side but it wasn’t,” Brazil coach Kleiton Lima said. “Unfortunately, there was the goal.” The U.S. victory comes exactly 12 years to the day the Americans beat China in a penalty-kick shootout at the Rose Bowl to win their second World Cup title, a watershed moment for the U.S. team and women’s sports in general. This, the Americans insist, is another special group. With 2-time defending champion Germany and Brazil gone, the Americans figure to be favorites to win their third title. They play France in Wednesday night’s semifinal and would face either Japan or Sweden in next Sunday’s final. Sweden beat the United States 2-1 in the final group stage game, its second victory this year over the Americans. Marta and the Brazilians, meanwhile, watched in stunned silence as the Americans celebrated and Cristiane had to wipe away tears several times during postgame interviews. Despite a star-filled roster led by Marta, the FIFA player of the year five times running, Brazil has never won a major tournament. It lost to the Americans in the last two Olympic gold-medal games and to Germany in the 2007 World Cup final. The U.S. has eliminated Brazil at five of the last seven major tournaments. The Americans also have won
Freese homered for the first time since April 12, helping the Cardinals earn a 4-game split of the series. Albert Pujols had two hits and Matt Holliday had an RBI single and a walk for the Cardinals. Brian Roberts hit a 2-run homer for the Diamondbacks. Garcia (9-3) gave up two runs and seven hits in six innings to improve to 6-1 with a 1.14 ERA in nine home starts this season. Fernando Salas worked the ninth for his 16th save. Pirates 9, Cubs 1 PITTSBURGH — Andrew McCutchen homered and drove in five runs and Pittsburgh entered the AllStar break with their best record in 19 years. McCutchen backed Paul Maholm with a 3-run homer and two sacrifice flies. Neil Walker went 3-for-4 and Alex Presley had two hits and scored two runs for Pittsburgh. The Pirates (47-43) have their best record and are closer to first place this late in the season than at any time since their most recent winning season in 1992. Darwin Barney had two hits for the Cubs. Ramon Ortiz (0-2) got the loss. Maholm (6-9) allowed one run and four hits in 7 2/3 innings. Nationals 2, Rockies 0 WASHINGTON — Jordan Zimmermann took a shutout into the seventh inning, Roger Bernadina and Rick Ankiel provided the offense and Washington went to the All-Star break with a .500 record for the first time since 2005. Zimmermann (6-7) went 6 1/3 innings, allowing four singles. He was nearly matched by Colorado’s Jhoulys Chacin (8-7), who gave up one run and four hits in seven innings. Drew Storen worked around a 2-out double to earn his 23rd save. Bernadina hit a broken-bat RBI single in the sixth and Ankiel hit his third homer of the season in the eighth. Marlins 5, Astros 4 MIAMI — Mike Cameron belted a tying 2-run homer for his first hit since joining the Marlins, who completed a 4-game sweep. Florida’s Emilio Bonifacio had three hits, extending his career-best hitting streak to 12 games. He stole three bases and scored twice. All-Star Gaby Sanchez drove in two runs for the rejuvenated Marlins, who are only five games below .500 (43-48) despite a streak last month of 19 losses in 20 games. Houston All-Star Hunter Pence hit his 11th homer. Wandy Rodriguez (6-6) gave up five runs in 5 1/3 innings. Florida’s Chris Volstad (5-8)

Seo on the verge of win at US Women’s Open
their last five meetings against Brazil, which entered with a 19-game, 1-year unbeaten streak. The lone consolation was that Marta’s goals, the 13th and 14th of her career, tied her with Birgit Prinz atop the World Cup career scoring list. The Americans have been questioned and doubted after uncharacteristic inconsistency over the past year. After going more than two years without a loss, they’ve dropped four just since November. And they squandered the early lead gifted to them by Daiane, who botched a clearance on a Shannon Boxx cross in the second minute, knocking the ball into her own net. But the players insisted they would be fine when it mattered most and proved it in the most dramatic of fashions. With about a minute left in stoppage time of the final overtime period and down a player since Rachel Buehler’s ejection in the 65th, Megan Rapinoe blasted a left-footed cross from 30 yards out on the left side that Andreia didn’t come close to getting her hands on. Wambach, one of the best players in the world in the air, made contact and with one furious whip of her head, buried it in the near side of the net from about 5 yards. Wambach let out a primal scream and slid into the corner, pumping her fists and quickly mobbed by teammates. No goal had ever been scored that deep into a World Cup game. The Americans, shooting first, made their three penalty kicks only to have Cristiane and Marta easily match them. But then it was Daiane’s turn.
She took a hard shot but Solo dove and batted the ball out of harm’s way. The dramatic finish overshadowed a brilliant effort by Marta. She made a dangerous run into the box in the 65th, beating two U.S. defenders and coming practically nose to nose with Solo before Buehler tracked back and dragged her down. Australian referee Jacqui Melksham not only ruled it a penalty but a red card as well. Cristiane, who already scored one goal off a penalty, took the kick. Solo made a perfect read and smacked it away, pumping her fists as Lloyd ran toward her to grab her in a bearhug. But Melksham ordered the penalty retaken — and gave Solo a yellow card, ruling the American left her line or a teammate encroached the penalty area before the kick was taken. Replays clearly showed Solo was on her line. As the crowd jeered, Marta stepped up for the retake, staring down her old foe. Solo cost Marta and the Brazilians the gold medal in Beijing, stopping a point-blank blast from Marta in the 72nd minute of the Olympic final. This time, however, Marta got the best of the keeper, burying the ball to pull the Brazilians even. Marta seemed to put the game out of reach with another goal in the 92nd minute — though replays seemed to show that Maurine, the player who fed her the ball, was offside. But Erika stalled when she went down on a tackle and the delay contributed to the 3 minutes of stoppage time added to the end of the game — extra seconds that would prove crucial.

‘Transformers’ stay in shape with $47M weekend
LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” now rules this year’s box office as the blockbuster sequel became 2011’s top domestic hit with $261 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Paramount Pictures’ sci-fi smash starring Shia LaBeouf remained No. 1 in its second weekend with $47 million and shot past “The Hangover Part II” to first-place on the domestic chart. Debuting in second place with $28.1 million domestically was the Warner Bros. comedy “Horrible Bosses,” featuring Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as bumblers plotting against their nasty supervisors. Opening at No. 3 with $21 million was Sony Pictures’ family tale “Zookeeper,” with
Kate, William depart US after charming Hollywood
By CHRISTINA HOAG and ANTHONY MCCARTNEY The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — They came, they schmoozed, they fundraised. Following a nonstop weekend that included a few chukkers of polo, time with Hollywood’s own version of royalty and several events that raised millions of dollars for charity, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed back to the U.K. on Sunday. Their Southern Californian stopover came at the end of a nine-day visit to Canada, the first tour Prince William and his bride Catherine have made since getting married in April. The U.S. portion of their travels was a somewhat low key affair compared to their northern visit, where — French separatists aside — the duke and duchess were greeted with rapturous welcomes as they crisscrossed the Commonwealth country. Excitement in California was more muted, though small crowds of wellwishers waving British and American
Kevin James as an animal tender who gets romantic advice from the talking critters in his care. Domestic business dipped overall, with revenues totaling $158 million, down 18 percent from the same weekend last year, when “Despicable Me” led with a $56.4 million debut, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Despite predictions of a monster summer that would easily surpass last year’s anemic one, revenues since the first weekend in May have slipped slightly behind those of summer 2010, according to Hollywood.com. With tickets costing more this year than last, that means admissions are down even further compared to summer 2010, when domestic attendance was among the lowest in the past decade.

flags lined up to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds and well-heeled fans paid thousands of dollars to sip champagne in the couple’s presence at a charity polo match in Santa Barbara on Saturday. Disneyland, the Hollywood sign and the beaches were not on the couple’s agenda, but the duke and duchess managed to see a sweeping sampling of the Los Angeles area. They also attended a star-studded, black-tie soiree to promote British filmmaking talent where the guests included

Tom Hanks and Jennifer Lopez. On Sunday, they paid a brief visit to Skid Row, downtown’s gritty homeless core. “Just seeing the smile on Catherine, it was great,” said 15-year-old Iliana Samaniego, who along with more than a dozen other performers danced for the couple at Skid Row’s Inner-City Arts academy. Like many who saw the couple, the performers were taken by their easy charm. Jessica Cornejo, 19, said she was thrilled when William gave a double thumbs-up and told them “brilliant” at the end of their performance. Many at the school were impressed by how down-to-earth and casual the couple were and said they put everyone at ease. “They were like your oldest friends and family,” said Bob Bates, co-founder of Inner-City Arts. “The kids really took them to heart.” The trip also included a rare display of public affection.

Wife says her husband did 180
Monday, July 11, 2011
By Bernice Bede Osol
Tuesday, July 12, 2011 Travel to numerous new places is likely to be in the offing for you in the year ahead. Some excursions will be planned, while others will be spurof-the-moment, but all the jaunts, both long and short of duration, will be packed with lots of pleasant experiences. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It wonít be necessary for you to have to ask for parity with associates. The acknowledgement you get from them regarding their feelings toward you will be sincere and welcoming. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Strive to participate in activities that might be a bit challenging but are ones you thoroughly enjoy doing. It will not only rejuvenate your outlook but will get your mind off of the more serious stuff. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Needed information from reluctant sources can be gotten more easily by asking indirect questions rather than being openly aggressive. People talk freely when they arenít pushed. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- It is generally the little things we do and say to friends that make the most lasting impressions. A small deed or some kind words from you will register and be cherished for a long time to come. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Even though you are likely to be far more clever in financial matters than those with whom youíll have dealings, to your credit you wonít take advantage. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Donít be surprised to hear from someone who has moved away and now resides at quite a distance from you. Youíre very much in the thoughts of this person at this time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even though youíve been aware of an endeavor that you know you would fit into quite well, youíve done nothing about it. Youíre wanted, so do something about it now. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -You are already aware of all the things you know, but new knowledge can be acquired from others, if you draw them out and get them talking. Keep them speaking by being a good listener. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Many of those with whom youíre involved might overlook some significant details, but not you. That is the very reason why youíll fare so much better in the long run. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Being able to get along with everybody, youíre a welcome addition to any gathering. However, the people youíll enjoy the most today are those who share your philosophy and politics. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If youíre not getting the elasticity from your funds that you want, take the time to examine why. There is no better day than now for making improvements. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Your personality is one that makes all of your friends feel they are fun to be around. Youíll do this today without using flattery, but simply accepting pals for who they are.

Post-9/11, Sikhs say they are mistaken targets
By TAMARA LUSH Associated Press ELK GROVE, Calif. — Kamaljit Atwal’s neighborhood seems like an unlikely place for a hate crime. His street in this Sacramento suburb seems a model of diversity. Atwal and his family are one of two Sikh families on the block from India. On Atwal’s street alone, there’s a Vietnamese family, a Mexican family, a black woman and a white man. But in March, Atwal’s 78-year-old father Gurmej Atwal and his 67-year-old friend Surinder Singh were shot and killed while taking an afternoon stroll in the neighborhood. Atwal and his fellow Sikhs in the area wonder if the same ugliness that has brought violence to other Sikhs is the reason why. The men had long beards and were wearing turbans, both traditional symbols of their religion. Police are investigating whether their killing was a hate crime. “It’s a complete case of mistaken identity,” said Rajdeep Singh of the Washington, D.C.-based Sikh Coalition, which is the largest Sikh civil rights group in the U.S. “When people look at me with a turban and beard, the first thing that comes to mind is, ‘That guy looks like Osama bin Laden.” Since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Sikhs have reported a rise in bias attacks, both verbal and physical, against them. The backlash that hit Muslims across the country has expanded to By MARCIA DUNN AP Aerospace Writer include them and their faith as well, with some assuming the sight of a long beard and turbaned head can only mean one thing. Kamajit Atwal said life used to be peaceful for him, his wife and their three children since moving to his quiet suburban block in 2003. Crime has gone down for four years in a row, in Elk Grove, where about 54 percent of its 153,000 residents are nonwhite. Atwal keeps a framed photo of his father on the fireplace mantel, not far from where the retired Indian civil servant once enjoyed his tea. Almost every day, Gurmej Atwal and his friend drank tea together, took a walk and met with other Sikh retirees in a nearby park. “My gut is that it was a hate crime,” said Atwal. He said that other elderly Sikhs are so afraid of being out in public since the shootings that they no longer socialize in the park. Mayor Steve Detrick said he’s not convinced the double shooting is a hate crime because the area has a history of accepting others. “Elk Grove is probably one of the most accepting about racial and religious diversity in the country,” he said. “I think somebody looked at these guys as an easy target. They were gunned down by cowards.” Amar Shergill, a Sikh and Sacramento attorney who lives in Elk Grove, said the problem is not Elk Grove’s. When people — including some politicians — try to stigmatize all Muslims as anti-American, Shergill said, all people who look different are targeted unfairly. “When the process becomes radicalized, that’s when the disturbed actors take out on Sikhs and Muslims and people who are perceived to be Muslims,” he said. Singh said there’s just not enough awareness of Sikhism, which is 500 years old and is the world’s fifth largest religion with 18 million adherents. The faith, which originated in the Indian region of Punjab, draws from Hinduism and Islamic Sufism and the faithful believe in karmic cycles of rebirth, similar to Buddhists. Prior to 2001, Sikhs say, people were merely curious about the turbans and why adherents don’t cut their hair. After Sept. 11, some people felt that Sikhs were the enemy. The Sikh Coalition said there have been at least 700 attacks or bias-related incidents against Sikhs since Sept. 11 in the U.S. Hate crimes against Sikhs are lumped in with hate crimes against Muslims, Arabs and South Asians — all groups that have experienced increased discrimination since the attacks of 2001. The group will hold meetings in New York on July 30 and in San Francisco on Aug. 27 so Sikhs can talk about bias and discrimination in the last decade. Videos of the meetings will be sent to lawmakers and police agencies. The coalition is also spearheading an effort this summer to stop bullying of Sikh children in schools after kids reported that other students tried to forcibly cut their hair, set their turbans on fire

Probe continues after vet falls from roller coaster

or attack them. “Suddenly, our life has changed,” said Rana Singh Sodhi, the brother of a man who was murdered outside of his Arizona gas station five days after Sept. 11. “We didn’t have any issue before 9/11.” Sodhi said that he and his family have stopped going camping in isolated areas because they fear what will happen. The man who was convicted of killing Sodhi’s brother expressed anger over Sept. 11 and before the murder, had told his wife that “all Arabs should be shot.” In 2004, vandals scrawled the words “It’s not your country” in blue spray paint on the wall of a Sikh temple in Fresno. No one has been arrested in that case. In 2010, a Sikh cabdriver was beaten by two men in Sacramento — located in a region with more Sikh residents than any in the nation. During the attack, one of the men called the cabbie “Osama bin Laden,” and also repeatedly told the assailants that he wasn’t Muslim, authorities said. In early June, Pedro Ramirez was sentenced to 13 years in prison for the attack a second man was sentenced to a year in jail. On Memorial Day of this year, four weeks after the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, a Sikh man who is a subway employee in New York said he was punched in the mouth by a man who called him “the brother of Osama.” No one has been arrested.

NY charter school throws foster kids a safety net
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — The astronauts on NASA’s final space shuttle flight got cracking today on all their supply delivery work, successfully hoisting a giant trunk out of Atlantis and attaching it to the International Space Station. The 21-foot canister holds more than 4 tons of food, clothes and other provisions — enough to keep the orbiting outpost and its residents in business for at least another year. Shuttle astronauts Sandra Magnus and Douglas Hurley used the space station’s hulking robot arm to hoist the Italian-built chamber, named Raffaello, out of Atlantis’ payload bay first thing today morning. They moved it into position on the station and bolted it down, accomplishing the job an hour ahead of schedule. The astronauts planned to open the hatch and enter Raffaello later in the day, and start removing all the trays and bags of supplies. They also got some good news today: NASA no longer has any concern about a piece of space junk due to swing by Tuesday. On Sunday, mission management team leader LeRoy Cain said controllers were monitoring the orbiting debris and that there was a chance it might come dangerously close. But on today, experts ascertained that the object — a piece of an old Soviet-era satellite — would remain at a safe distance and the shuttle-station complex would not need to move out of the way. Mission Control said Sunday’s docking by Atlantis actually lifted the joined vessels into a slightly higher orbit of 242 miles — just enough to dodge the piece of junk. Space junk is said to be the No. 1 threat facing the space station in the coming decade. More than 500,000 pieces of orbiting debris are being tracked, according to NASA. Two weeks ago, the six space station residents had to seek shelter in their lifeboats when a piece of junk came within 1,100 feet — the closest encounter yet. In another bit of welcome news, a critical shuttle computer was back up and running normally again after being knocked offline just before Sunday’s linkup. The 10 space fliers will spend the next week unloading the contents of Raffaello and filling the chamber back up with packing material, and space station garbage and old equipment. Lead flight director Kwatsi Alibaruho said the back-and-forth load work by the astronauts will be like an army of ants moving in and out of their anthill. NASA wants the space station well-stocked for the looming post-shuttle era. Private companies are working on rockets and spacecraft to deliver cargo, but that’s still months away and there’s always the chance of delays.
BUFFALO, N.Y. — An investigation is continuing into the death of an Iraq war veteran and double amputee who fell from a 208-foot-tall roller coaster in upstate New York. Sgt. James Thomas Hackemer, who had lost both his legs to a roadside bomb, was ejected Friday from the Ride of Steel coaster at Darien Lake Theme Park Resort, located between Buffalo and Rochester. The ride remained closed Sunday and the park’s website said it will not operate again until authorities complete their investigation. Amusement park industry consultant Dennis Speigel said two things should be considered when determining whether someone should be allowed on a ride. “One is rider responsibility and then there is operator responsibility, and those two issues have to homogenize,” Speigel said Sunday. “This just seems to me that it was a bad decision on both parts.” Hackemer’s relatives have said they don’t hold the park responsible for his death. “It’s nobody’s fault. It was an accident. James thought it wasn’t an issue,” Jody Hackemer said over the weekend of her brother’s disability. She said her brother had had recently returned from the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where he was fitted with a new set of prosthetic legs. Jody Hackemer said she did not believe he was wearing the prostheses on the roller coaster. Rules posted on the park’s website for the Ride of Steel

say guests with “certain body proportions” may not be able to ride it, but it doesn’t give specifics. The rules specifically bar people without both legs from riding at least two other coasters in the park, the Motocoaster and the Predator. Although an investigation of the accident is incomplete, Speigel, who is not involved in the probe, wondered whether Hackemer’s military service played a role in the decision to allow the ride. Parks in general are sensitive to the military, he said, with many offering significant discounts and ticket giveaways to service members and their families. As of July 5, since the start of U.S. military operations in Iraq, 32,130 U.S. service members have been wounded in hostile action, according to the Department of Defense’s weekly tally. “Here we have a situation where that individual has seen some pretty incredible things, I would imagine, and if I had to guess, was saying, ‘I can ride this. Don’t worry about me, I’ll be fine.’ And then you begin dealing with the forces of physics and it’s a whole different situation,” said Speigel, a past president of the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, a trade association. Ben Sobeck of Wellsville said he was with two friends on the Ride of Steel coaster a few seats behind Hackemer, who was riding with a college-age nephew, Ashton Luffred. The friends watched in horror as Hackemer was lifted from the seat and thrown as the car went over a hill after two big dips and some turns. “It’s bad to deny him to ride, but they should not have allowed him to ride,” Sobeck, an Alfred State College student, told the Hornell Evening Tribune. “The ride holds you in by the shins and thighs and a seatbelt.”
NEW YORK — A Harvard-trained administrator thought she had heard it all as a gatekeeper in a city office responsible for supporting charter schools when Bill Baccaglini walked enthusiastically through the door with one more idea. “I thought, ‘Here we go, another big idea,”’ recalled Jessica Nauiokas. But she found herself liking his plans so much that she offered to be the Bronx school’s principal. “I walked out of the meeting and said, ‘Wow. That actually is a compelling idea.”’ Thus explains how Nauiokas became principal at the Haven Academy Charter School, where a third of students are in foster care. Another third are in families receiving preventive services to diminish the need for foster care. The rest are from the Mott Haven community, which is in a Congressional district where a soaring poverty rate keeps a third of residents on public assistance. Many schools cater to disadvantaged children, but Haven Academy is unique because it houses hundreds of counselors in the same building. It was impossible to find a blueprint for the school, Baccaglini said. “We searched and searched and searched but we couldn’t find models,” he said. It’s such a novel project, he added, that it might be a few years before it can be fully evaluated with an eye toward
replicating it. “Schools aren’t organized in a way to accommodate how chaotic their (students’) lives are outside of the four walls of school,” he said. The counselors work in the Bronx Community Services offices of the school’s sponsor, the New York Foundling, a 142-year-old citywide private child welfare agency. Baccaglini is the agency’s executive director. The school features a small student-teacher ratio, an extended school day, many tutor options and special training to keep teachers consistent in the language they use and their responses to problems, Nauiokas said. The school opened in 2008 with 90 students in kindergarten and first grade. Last year, the student population swelled to 175 as grade three was added and a newly renovated $32.5 million building was opened. Private donations are sought for two-thirds of the costs. The rest was publicly financed. Next school year, 40 to 50 new students will arrive as the fourth grade is added. The charter school hopes to close the achievement gap between students from stable backgrounds and children from troubled families, said Baccaglini, who worked in state government before joining the Foundling in 2003. “Even though their world outside of school is falling apart, we want to keep their educational experience as consistent as possible,” he said.
LOS ANGELES — It was one small step for man, and one small price that just wasn’t enough. A strip of fabric shorn from the American flag before it went to the moon with Apollo 11 astronauts pulled in a top bid of $60,000 at a Los Angeles auction on Sunday, but didn’t meet the auction house’s minimum reserve price of $95,000 and was not sold. For now it will stay in the possession of owner Tom Moser, the retired NASA engineer who rescued it from the trash in 1969. “When you’re dealing with a unique item there’s no way to anticipate either value or interest, so it’s really a blind item,” said auctioneer Michael Orenstein. “I would say we established a market.” Orenstein had earlier expressed hope that the strip from what he called “the most-viewed flag in American history” along with a photo bearing Neil Armstrong’s autograph would fetch $100,000 to $150,000. Orenstein said sometimes there would be minimal interest in an item then, “I put it in the next sale and it goes wild. That’s the nature of the auction business.” Other items at the space-themed auction met or surpassed expectations including a Collier trophy — the so-called Oscar of aviation — that was awarded to the crew of 1962’s Mercury 7 mission and sold Sunday for $12,500. Orenstein said the auction as a whole was a big success with a 95 percent sell-through rate. But the hopes were highest for the seven-inch strip of red and white fabric on consignment from Moser, the retired NASA engineer who was tasked with designing the moon-bound flag in the weeks before Apollo 11’s 1969 launch. NASA’s original plans didn’t involve planting a flag on the moon because of a United Nations treaty prohibiting nations from claiming celestial entities as their own, Moser said. But after Congress slipped language into an appropriations bill authorizing the flag’s placement as a non-territorial marker, Moser was told to design a flag that could survive the trip to the moon and be planted on its surface upon arrival. With the spacecraft’s tiny interior too cramped even for a rolled-up flag, Moser devised a way to fix an aluminum tube with a thermal liner for the banner on the outside of the vessel, he said. NASA staff bought an American flag off the shelf of a nearby store and Moser had a hem sewn along its top, so a telescoping aluminum rod could be inserted to hold the banner out straight on the gravity-free moon. (On the moon, the rod didn’t extend its full length; the consequent bunching is what makes the flag look like it’s blowing in the wind.) Meanwhile, a strip of fabric along the flag’s left side was cut to remove a set of grommets, Moser said. “It was put in the trash can and I just took it out and said, ‘I’m going to keep that,”’ he said. Moser said he had Neil Armstrong sign a photo of the flag planted on the moon when the astronaut returned to Earth and he kept the picture and his rescued scrap of flag together in his NASA office until he retired in 1990. But after hanging onto the photo and flag-swatch assemblage all these years, he finally decided to put them up to auction. Some space scholars had been unimpressed with the artifact. Since the remnant itself was never launched, its connection to the moon-bound banner has little significance, said Louis Parker, exhibits manager at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. “That doesn’t give it any more importance than any other piece of fabric that was here on Earth,” he said. But Moser insisted that the piece does indeed have value, since it represents the beginning of an era of space exploration that now has an uncertain future as the space shuttle makes its final voyage.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — When the city of Cambridge issues paychecks to its public employees, nearly two dozen workers find a federal tax on their income that their colleagues don’t have to pay. Like many people, these 22 school and city workers chose to put their spouses on their employer-provided health insurance. Because they’re homosexual, the value of that health coverage is considered taxable income by the federal government. But starting this month, Cambridge will become what is believed to be the first municipality in the country to pay its public employees a stipend in an attempt to defray the cost of the federal tax on health benefits for their same-sex spouses. The city employees hit by the extra tax pay an additional $1,500 to $3,000 in taxes a year and officials estimate the stipends would cost the city an additional $33,000. “This is about equality,” said Marjorie Decker, a Cambridge city councilor. “This is a city that models what equality really means.” Of the thousands of legally married gay and lesbian couples in Massachusetts, none can receive the federal benefits offered to heterosexual married couples because the federal government doesn’t recognize same-sex marriages. Those benefits include Social Security survivors’ benefits, immigration rights, family leave and the ability to file joint tax returns. The council last month approved the measure that would provide quarterly stipends to any city or school employee who puts a same-sex spouse on their health insurance. The vote came after council members began looking in January for a way to offset what they called an unfair and discriminatory tax. “This is ultimately a fairness issue. Two people who do the exact same job should be paid exactly the same for what they are doing at work,” said Leland Cheung, a Cambridge City Councilor who pushed for a proposal with fellow councilor E. Denise Simmons, who is openly gay. Decker and Cheung said the additional funds needed from the city’s personnel budget is a minor cost in the city’s more than $500 million budget, but some say the public’s money should not be used to go against established law. “It’s a travesty of using taxpayer monies to circumvent a national policy,” said Kris Mineau, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, an advocacy group opposed to same-sex marriage.
