DELPHOS The sixth
annual Marbletown Festival
centered around the new
Garfield School marker
placed at Garfield Park last
week.
Garfield School stood
on what is now the park
and was used from 1902 to
1961.
A ceremony commem-
orating the marker was
headed by Mayor Michael
Gallmeier, Delphos City
Schools Superintendent
Jeff Price, the Rev. David
Howell and Mike Shaffer
of Delphos Wesleyan
Church.
Mayor Gallmeier told
the crowd the city was
pleased the Marbletown
Festival has done so much
to preserve the history of
Marbletown and passed
along gratitude from
the Delphos Parks and
Recreation Department to
the Marbletown Festival
Committee for all the
donations for the better-
ment of Garfield Park.
To date, festival pro-
ceeds have been used to
install a sidewalk, shelter-
house, barbecue grill and
the school marker.
Superintendent Price
noted the historical shared
sacrifice Delphos has given
for quality education and
that the school marker is a
reminder of those sacrifices.
Education is the great
social equalizer in our coun-
try, Price said. It doesnt
matter what background a
child comes from; he or she
is offered the same education
as their peers.
Rev. Howell praised the
newest edition to the park.
Garfield Park stands as
a witness to what has been,
what is and what will be, he
said. This newest addition
preserves a piece of history
for all to see and remem-
ber.
The first church in
Marbletown later became
St. Paul United Methodist
Church, now at the corner of
Cleveland and South Main
streets.
Shaffer closed the dedica-
tion with prayer.
Festival-goers were treat-
ed to many events through-
out Saturday, including
the annual 5K, childrens
activities, the Frog-Jumping
Contest, parade, corn hole
tournament and more.

Autopsies planned for Ohio gunman, 7 others killed
BY KANTELE FRANKO
And THOMAS J. SHEERAN
The Associated Press
COPLEY Autopsies were
expected to begin today for seven
people killed in a small northeast
Ohio town during a shooting rampage
by a gunman who died in a gunfight
with police.
Investigators combed through
three homes and searched outside
another in a wooded, residential area
outside Akron on Sunday, collect-
ing evidence as they tried to piece
together what led to the shootings that
shook a quiet neighborhood, leaving
eight dead and one wounded.
Authorities did not release the con-
dition of the survivor who was hospi-
talized, and they were withholding
the names and ages of those involved
until officers could tell victims fam-
ily members, some of whom were
out of state, Copley police Sgt. Eric
Goodwin said.
The tragedy began before 11 a.m.
when police say the gunman shot his
girlfriend in one home, then ran to a
next-door neighbors house, where
he shot her brother and gunned down
four neighbors. He then chased four
people two through neighboring
backyards shooting one of them
before bursting into a home on a
nearby road, where two others had
sought refuge.
Police said he shot his eighth vic-
tim in that home and left, only to get
into a gunfight outside with a police
officer and a citizen who had been a
police officer. The gunman, whose
name was not released, was killed.
Neighbors said the dead included
an 11-year-old boy and that at least
three victims were from one family.
A school official said he was told
two victims were students at the local
high school.
Gilbert Elie, who has lived in the
neighborhood for 11 years, heard
the gunshots and cries for help as he
got ready for church. In an account
that differed slightly from the police
version, Elie said he went to a house
across the street and found the
woman who lived there lying in the
driveway, her husband shot near the
garage, and their granddaughter and
another woman shot in the front seat
of a vehicle, the windows apparently
blown out by gunfire.
A third woman came out of the
house next door and tried to talk to
Elie, he said, but their brief exchange
ended abruptly when a man followed
her out of the house and shot her,
sending the 76-year-old Elie running
for safety behind a truck.
She was talking to me, and he
come up behind her and shot her, so I
figured, maybe Im next, he told The
Associated Press.
He hid until he could see the gun-
man was gone, then returned home.
Police arrived, and Elie said he heard
a second round of shots coming from
behind the houses and assumed offi-
cers had killed the gunman.
Elie said his neighbors, Russ and
Gerdie Johnson, lived across the
street. He said the ordeal has left
residents of their well-kept neighbor-
hood shaken and wondering what
prompted the shootings.
Theyre all in shock, said Elie.
Public records show a Russell
Johnson, 67, and his wife Gudrun,
64, live on the road where the shoot-
ings occurred.
Elie described the gunman as
generally unfriendly, a rarity on the
street, and said he often worked on
his car outside his house but never
waved at anyone.
Police, who did not release infor-
mation about the shooters motive,
planned a news conference at noon
today.
The Akron Beacon Journal report-
ed that Copley-Fairlawn School
Superintendent Brian Poe said he
was told by a township trustee that
two Copley High School students
were killed and that a third youth, the
11-year-old, was also killed. Poe said
the trustee told him the 11-year-old
was not a Copley student.
Some of the victims are from
out of state, Copley police Sgt. Eric
Goodwin said.
A person running through the
neighborhood and firing a gun had
prompted calls to police, the Copley
Police Department said in a news
release late Sunday.
Brian and Diane Cross said they
were riding on a motorcycle Sunday
morning when they heard a loud bang
and saw a man with a gun chasing
another man. Brian Cross, 53, said
they drove a half mile to a service
station to call 911, but Copley police
was already on it, and they were fly-
ing by us.
The neighborhood was blocked off
by police Sunday.
She was talking to
me, and he come up
behind her and shot
her, so I figured,
maybe Im next.

The Associated Press
BEIRUT Arab nations
joined the international cho-
rus of condemnation against
President Bashar Assads
regime today, with Bahrain,
Kuwait and Saudi Arabia
pulling out their ambassadors
as a besieged Syrian city came
under fresh artillery fire.
The renewed violence in
the eastern city of Deir el-
Zour comes a day after at
least 42 people were killed
there in an intensifying gov-
ernment crackdown on pro-
testers.
We heard very loud
explosions, and now theres
intermittent gunfire, an
activist in the city said, speak-
ing on condition of anonym-
ity for fear of reprisals. He
said people were too terri-
fied to take the wounded to
government hospitals, instead
treating them at home or in
makeshift hospitals.
The international commu-
nity has sharply condemned
the governments crackdown,
imposing sanctions and
demanding an immediate end
to the attacks. France and
Germany renewed their con-
demnation today.
But in a sign of grow-
ing outrage, Syrias Arab
neighbors joined the mount-
ing criticism, voicing their
concerns about a crackdown
that intensified on the eve of
the holy month of Ramadan
a time of introspection
and piety characterized by a
dawn-to-dusk fast.
Late Sunday, Saudi
Arabias king whose coun-
try does not tolerate dissent
and lent its military troops to
repress anti-government pro-
tests in neighboring Bahrain
said he was recalling his
ambassador in Damascus for
consultations, and demanded
an end to the killing machine
and bloodshed.
Any sane Arab, Muslim
or anyone else knows that
this has nothing to do with
religion, or ethics or mor-
als; spilling the blood of the
innocent for any reasons or
pretext leads to no path to ...
hope, King Abdullah said in
a statement.
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP)
International military forces
worked today to recover every
last piece of a Chinook heli-
copter that crashed over the
weekend, killing 30 American
troops, seven Afghan soldiers
and an Afghan interpreter,
NATO said.
German Brig. Gen. Carsten
Jacobson, a spokesman for the
U.S.-led coalition, told report-
ers that troops had secured the
crash site in a rugged area of
eastern Wardak province and
nobody was being allowed in
or out of the area while the
investigation was ongoing.
Jacobson said the coalition
still had not yet determined the
exact cause of the crash, but
some officials have said the
heavy and lumbering transport
helicopter was apparently shot
down. Officials said the heli-
copter was hit as it was flying
in and approaching the area.
We are still investigating
this incident so we have no
picture of what was the cause
for the incident. That is what
the investigation is basically
all about, Jacobson said.
The helicopter was ferry-
ing a group of Navy SEALs
to reinforce a group of Army
Rangers who were under
fire. It remains unclear if the
Rangers and SEALs were tak-
ing part in a night raid to
capture or kill an insurgent
leader.
It was deadliest single loss
for U.S. forces in the decade-
long war.
Another NATO helicopter
made a hard landing today in
eastern Paktia province, the
U.S.-led coalition said. It did
not report any casualties and
said the cause of the hard
landing was under investiga-
tion. The coalition said there
was no enemy activity in the
area at the time.
The helicopter was a CH-47
of the same type that crashed
on Saturday. It was flying in
to pick up special operations
troops, but apparently suf-
fered a mechanical failure and
crash landed, an officer in the
war zone said. He could not
be named because he was not
authorized to comment pub-
licly. The crew was rescued
by the troops.
The fatal crash on Saturday
highlights the risks confront-
ing the U.S.-led coalition as
it looks to rely more on spe-
cial operations forces while
reducing the overall number
of troops in Afghanistan by
the end of 2014.
A current and a former U.S.
official said the Americans
included 22 SEALs, three Air
Force members and a dog
handler and his dog. The two
spoke on condition of ano-
nymity because military offi-
cials were still notifying the
families of the dead.
All but two of the SEALs
were from SEAL Team 6, the
unit that killed Osama bin
Laden in Pakistan last May,
officials said on condition
of anonymity because they
were not authorized to release
the information. None of the
SEALs killed in the crash
took part in the bin Laden
mission.
Eight Taliban fighters
were also killed in the battle,
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah
Mujahid said in a statement.

As a registered nurse for St. Ritas Medical Center, Jennifer sees rst-
hand the many benets associated with robotic surgery. By the time she
begins working post-operatively with her patients, most are already well
on their way to recovery.
What makes this possible is the use
of much smaller incisions instead of
the major incision usually associated
with these procedures. The smaller incisions carry less risk of
complications and cause less pain and scarring. That means patients
can look forward to a quicker return to the things they love.

IRONTON (AP)
Lawmakers and others invest-
ed in southern Ohios econo-
my say the state should work
with neighboring Kentucky
and West Virginia to help the
region realize the shipping
potential of the Ohio River.
The tri-state area should
develop a port authority that
views the river as a global logis-
tics center, Patrick Donovan,
of the Rahall Appalachian
Transportation Institute, told
The Columbus Dispatch
(http://bit.ly/pjVAGH).
We are kind of in the cat-
bird seat. We just have to put it
all together, he said.
We need an understand-
ing that, if a manufacturing
facility lands here in Lawrence
County, Ohio, West Virginians
are going to work here. Were
no longer competing across the
river; our competition is now
global.
Those working to develop
the rivers economic potential
met last week at an Ohio River
Summit hosted by a group of
state lawmakers.
State Rep. Terry Johnson, a
Republican from McDermott,
said the state has neglected
the rivers potential. He also
encouraged regional partner-
ships.

WASHINGTON When
Congress gets back to work
after Labor Day it will have
the chance to achieve some-
thing that has largely eluded
it for the entire year, passing
legislation that might actually
create jobs.
With the battering debate
over the debt ceiling over,
the stage is set for Congress
to approve and President
Barack Obama to sign three
big free-trade agreements and
the most significant overhaul
of the patent system in 60
years.
Legislative hitches can
never be discounted, but both
the trade and patent measures
enjoy bipartisan support from
lawmakers eager to show
they can make a difference
in improving the feeble job
market.
Its hard to find much evi-
dence of relevance so far this
year. As Congress left for
its August recess, the presi-
dent had signed only 27 bills
into law since this session
opened in January. Some,
such as the just-passed bill
to raise the debt ceiling and
a bill to extend Patriot Act
provisions, were important.
But most were more routine
five bills to name post
offices or federal buildings,
three to name members of the
Smithsonian board of regents
and four to keep federal air-
port operations running.
Arguably, not one con-
tributed to job growth.
Republicans say that spend-
ing cuts in a 2011 budget act
and the debt act will stimulate
the private sector. Democrats
retort that reductions in fed-
eral investment in infrastruc-
ture and new technology are
job killers.
The two parties were quick
to blame each other when the
Labor Department announced
Friday that the unemploy-
ment rate in July was 9.1
percent, barely changed from
the previous month.
Obama has previously
called on Congress to put
aside the blame game long
enough to act on the pat-
ent and trade bills. There
are also things that Congress
could do right now that will
help create good jobs. Right
now, Congress can send me a
bill that would make it easier
for entrepreneurs to patent a
new product or idea, he said
at a June 29 news confer-
ence.
Right now, he added,
Congress can advance
a set of trade agreements
that would allow American
businesses to sell more of
their goods and services to
countries in Asia and South
America.
The patent bill will be at
the top of the agenda when
the Senate reconvenes in
September. The first major
overhaul of the patent sys-
tem since 1952 has already
passed both the Senate and
the House by wide margins,
and the Senate will be trying
to agree to the similar House
version and send it to the
president for his signature.
The main intent of the pat-
ent bill is to streamline a
system that has resulted in a
backlog of 1.2 million pend-
ing patents and ensure that
the Patent and Trademark
Office has adequate fund-
ing. It also would switch
the United States from the
first-to-invent system now
in effect to the first-to file
system for patent applications
used by all other industrial-
ized countries.
Supporters say the first-
to-file system creates cer-
tainty about patent owner-
ship and reduce costly litiga-
tion. Job creation will be a
happy byproduct, they pre-
dict. Patent reform will be
a boost to intellectual prop-
erty industries that account
for more than a half of U.S.
exports, said House Judiciary
Committee Chairman Lamar
Smith, R-Texas. These
industries also provide mil-
lions of Americans with well-
paying jobs.
Smiths Democratic part-
ner in the Senate, Judiciary
Committee Chairman Patrick
Leahy of Vermont, agreed:
This is a jobs bill when our
economy needs it most.
The trade agreements
with South Korea, Colombia,
and Panama could have an
even more direct impact on
jobs. The administration
says that ratification of the
Korea agreement alone could
mean 70,000 new jobs from
increased exports, with more
jobs possible from opening
up Koreas service market to
American firms.
The three deals will
increase exports by $13 bil-
lion annually and create jobs
here at home, and thats why
weve been fighting so hard
to get it done, said Senate
Finance Committee Chairman
Max Baucus, D-Mont. Some
labor groups disagree, saying
free trade agreements make it
easier for U.S. companies to
ship jobs overseas.
Congress could pass
jobs-creating bills
By TOM RAUM

WASHINGTON Anger
at the nations leaders for tak-
ing so long to strike a debt-
ceiling deal has turned into
high anxiety over jobs and
the economy amid growing
fears of a new recession.
The news that credit rating
agency Standard & Poors
downgraded the nations
credit rating a notch for the
first time ever only added to
the tension.
The darkening clouds come
in what should have been
a good week for President
Barack Obama. After all,
he and Republican leaders
finally ended a months-long
game of brinkmanship with a
bipartisan agreement to raise
the governments debt ceiling
and to trim spending.
The deal kept the gov-
ernment from beginning to
run out of cash last Tuesday,
averting a first-ever U.S.
default and a possible global
financial meltdown.
And there was a relatively
good jobs report on Friday.
But applause for the debt-
limit deal or the increase in
jobs never came.
In fact, stock markets
around the world tumbled
during the week as grim new
economic figures suggested
the U.S. recovery has stalled
and as debt default tensions
climbed in Europe.
Terms of the deal to
extend the U.S. governments
borrowing authority and trim
federal spending contributed
to investor angst. Many econ-
omists suggest the debt-limit
measure could even wind
up making economic prob-
lems worse if belt-tightening
spending cuts coincide with a
new recession.
And the Standard & Poors
downgrade late Friday cast
new doubts on the value of
the U.S. debt-limit deal. The
credit rating agency said it
was cutting the countrys top
AAA rating by one notch
to AA-plus because the defi-
cit reduction plan passed
by Congress did not go far
enough to stabilize the coun-
trys debt situation.
As to that downgrade,
economists suggested it
might not have much actual
impact, noting that the cred-
it ratings of Japan, Canada
and Australia had also been
downgraded in recent years
with few economic conse-
quences.
And in the past few days,
investors have been fleeing
stock and commodity mar-
kets for the perceived safety
of U.S. Treasury bonds and
bills.
Thats a dramatic about
face, since just a few days
ago, global investors were
worried that a U.S. default on
its debt would end the long-
standing status of Treasurys
as the worlds safest-haven
investments.
Investors have voted and
are saying the U.S. is going
to pay them, Mark Zandi,
chief economist of Moodys
Analytics. Despite the S&P
downgrade Friday night,
U.S. Treasurys are still the
gold standard, he said.
Zandi noted that neither
his parent organization,
Moodys, nor Fitch, the other
of the three major rating
agencies, has downgraded
U.S. debt.
I dont think it (the
S&P downgrade) is going
to amount to a lot, said
Peter Morici, a University
of Maryland business econo-
mist. Still, Morici said, The
United States deserves to
have this happen, because of
its clumsy handling of eco-
nomic policy.
Fridays jobs report a
net increase of 117,000 new
jobs in July and an unem-
ployment rate ticking down
to 9.1 percent from 9.2 per-
cent in June was better
than expected by forecasters,
but it did little to ease fears
of a new recession. The job-
less rate now has exceeded 9
percent in all but two months
since the recession officially
ended in June 2009.
Recent reports suggest the
economy is slowing to a near-
stall.
LONDON (AP) Global
stock markets sank again today
as worries about the down-
grade of U.S. debt outweighed
relief at a European Central
Bank pledge to buy up Italian
and Spanish bonds to help the
two countries avoid devastat-
ing defaults.
European markets lost early
momentum and most were trad-
ing sharply lower amid mount-
ing fears over the opening of
U.S. markets, when traders
will have their first chance to
respond to Standard & Poors
decision to lower its triple A
rating for the U.S.
Investors remain worried
about the state of the world
economy and policymak-
ers ability to deal with the
European debt crisis, said Neil
MacKinnon, global macro
strategist at VTB Capital.
Investors are concerned
about a rising risk of global
recession, credit downgrades
especially now in the eurozone,
such as France, the threat of a
major bank bust and a global
liquidity trap as investors stay
in cash, MacKinnon said.
Those concerns trumped
any relief European mar-
kets got from the sharp fall
in Italian and Spanish bond
yields after the European
Central Bank said it would
buy the two countries bonds
in order to help them avoid
devastating defaults. The yield
on Italys ten-year bonds fell
0.66 percentage point to 5.32
percent while Spains tumbled
0.82 percentage point to 5.22
percent.
In Europe, Britains FTSE
100 index of leading British
shares was down 1.7 percent
at 5,160 while Frances CAC-
40 fell 2 percent to 3,214.
Germanys DAX was 2.3 per-
cent lower at 6,096.
Sentiment in Europe has
not been helped at all by the
expected sell-off at the U.S.
open Dow futures were
down 2.1 percent at 11,167
while the broader Standard &
Poors 500 futures fell 2.4 per-
cent to 1,168.
Policymakers around the
world, many on holiday, are
trying to come up with a strat-
egy to shore up market worries
over the global economy and
the levels of debt in the U.S.
and Europe.
Late Sunday, Europes cen-
tral bank said it would active-
ly implement its bond-buying
program to calm investor con-
cerns that Italy and Spain wont
be able to pay their debts. Last
week, worries over the two
countries ability to keep tap-
ping bond markets contributed
to the turmoil in global mar-
kets, which saw around $1.5
trillion wiped off share prices.
Seeking to avert panic
spreading across financial mar-
kets, the finance ministers and
central bankers of the Group
of 20 industrial and develop-
ing world also issued a joint
statement today saying they
were committed to taking all
necessary measures to support
financial stability and growth.
We will remain in close
contact throughout the coming
weeks and cooperate as appro-
priate, ready to take action to
ensure financial stability and
liquidity in financial markets,
they said.
So far, the S&P downgrade
doesnt seem to be having too
much of an impact on U.S.
government bonds, known
as Treasuries. The worry has
been that the downgrade would
prompt investors to demand
more, but the yield on ten-year
Treasuries has actually fallen.

Education Secretary Arne
Duncan says he will announce
a new waiver system today to
give schools a break from
student testing mandates in
the federal No Child Left
Behind law.
Critics say the benchmarks
are unrealistic and brand
schools as failures even if
they make progress. Schools
and districts where too few
kids pass the tests for sev-
eral years are subject to sanc-
tions that can include firing
teachers or closing the school
entirely.
State and local education
officials have been begging
the federal government for
relief from the mandates,
but school starts soon and
Congress still hasnt answered
the call.
The plan to offer waiv-
ers to all 50 states, as long
as they meet other school
reform requirements, comes
at the request of President
Barack Obama, Duncan said.
More details on the waivers
will come in September, he
said.
The goal of the No Child
Left Behind law is to have
every student proficient in
math and reading by 2014.
States have been required to
bring more students up to
the math and reading stan-
dards each year, based on
tests that usually take place
each spring. The step-by-step
ramping up of the 9-year-
old law has caused stress in
states and most school dis-
tricts, because more and more
schools are labeled as failures
as too few of their students
meet testing goals.
Through the waivers,
schools will get some relief
from looming deadlines to
meet testing goals as long as
they agree to embrace other
kinds of education reforms
such as raising standards,
helping teachers and princi-
pals improve, and focusing
on fixing the lowest perform-
ing schools.
Duncan and Melody
Barnes, director of the
Domestic Policy Council at
the White House, said the
administration will encourage
every state to apply and will
work with them to meet the
requirements.
Nothing in this plan for
temporary relief from some
aspects of the federal law will
undermine what Congress is
still discussing in terms of
revising federal education
laws, Duncan said. The long-
awaited overhaul of the law
began earlier this year in the
U.S. House, but a compre-
hensive reform appears far
from the finish line.
What we do in terms of
flexibility can be a bridge
or transition, he said. We
all want to fix the law. This
might help us get closer to
that.

DELPHOS With seven
letterwinners back from a 4-6
dual-meet season in 2010,
second-year St. Johns boys
golf coach John Klausing
has a veteran crew.
We qualified for
districts as a team last
year. This year, with
the returning letter-
winners, we should
see great strides in
our game and finish
well; we have high
expectations for a lot
of success this year,
Klausing noted.
With only Ryan Edelbrock
and James Klausing gone via
graduation from last years
group, Coach Klausing will
build this years campaign
around third-year varsity play-
ers in senior Cody Kundert,
senior Isaac Klausing, senior
Eric Bergfeld and junior Nick
Kayser.
As well, three others
lettered a year ago: junior
Cole Fischbach, junior Craig
Klausing and junior Sean
Flanagan.
Coach Klausing will have
six more participants on his
unit to provide depth and
competition in 2011: senior
Matthew Warnecke, senior
Anthony Buzzard, junior
Aaron Miller (lettered as a
freshman), junior Drew
Wagner, sophomore
T.J Hoersten and
freshman Jordan
Keirns.
Assisting Klausing
in the coaching ranks
are Jim Warnecke,
Tom Rekart and
Dean Bowersock.
The Jays kicked off the
2011 season this morning in
the annual Delphos Country
Club Tee-Off Classic (with
Jefferson, Fort Jennings and
Ottoville, whose home course
is the DCC).
The Blue Jays also visit
Lincolnview (Hickory Sticks)
10 a.m. Tuesday.

RURAL MIDDLE POINT
Kevin Losh begins his
10th year at the helm of the
Division III Lincolnview
boys golf team.
Last years team was inex-
perienced from the start as he
had to replace six letterwin-
ners from the season before.
This year, he has a
bit more experience
returning with three
lettermen back
from a 4-27 edition
in 2010.
Junior Brooks
Ludwig, soph-
omore Troy
Patterson and
sophomore Logan Miller
are back for the Blue and
Yellow.
However, for Losh to
improve his overall coaching
mark of 224-151, he must
replace the top linkster from a
year ago, Taylor Hoehn.
He was a 3-year letter-
winner, too. The veterans we
do have are still young, with
no seniors, Losh asserted.
Behind them are newcom-
ers to the varsity level. How
quickly they become accus-
tomed to the varsity level in
golf, gain experience in how
you have to play at this level
and how to play it the right
way will be key.
Losh lost only one other
golfer to graduation last fall:
Zach Kreischer.
He will be depending on
the likes of promising new-
comers in senior Wes Collins,
freshman Damon Norton
and freshman Justis Dowdy
to compete with the likes of
Lima Central Catholic and
the rest of the Northwest
Conference.
Most coaches will say the
s a m e
thing at
this point:
their golfers have
to improve every
day in every aspect
of game and course
management and have
fun. Were no different, he
added.
The Lancer boys will host
a pair of matches this week to
begin the 2011 campaign: 10
a.m. Tuesday versus St. Johns
and 9 a.m. Thursday in the
9-team Lancer Invitational.
Teams involved include
Lincolnview, Crestview,
Antwerp, Ft. Jennings,
Ottoville, Leipsic, St. Henry,
Columbus Grove and Miller
City.
All home matches are at
Hickory Sticks Golf Club in
Van Wert.

Lancer boys have
youthful golf crew
By DAN GELSTON
The Associated Press
LONG POND, Pa. Brad
Keselowski was inspired
Sunday by a relative in the
Navy Seals and that was all
he needed to push through his
painful ankle injury.
Keselowskis cousin lost
a friend who was one of
30 American service mem-
bers who died when their
helicopter was shot down
during fighting in eastern
Afghanistan. The NASCAR
driver took the sacrifice to
heart and vowed he would
not leave his car no matter
how bad he hurt.
So Keselowski went out
and raced all 500 miles of the
Sprint Cup stop at Pocono
Raceway with a broken left
ankle.
As if that wasnt enough,
he somehow managed to win,
too.
Competing with a brace
on his ankle, Keselowski
sped off on the final restart
late in the race to pick up his
second victory of the season.
He gingerly climbed out of
his car to celebrate with his
crew in Victory Lane.
He dedicated the victory
one that thrust him into
Chase contention to the
troops in Afghanistan.
I might not be feeling
great but those are the guys
that are really making sac-
rifices, Keselowski said.
Whenever I got in the car
and felt like, man, this really
hurts, it was good inspiration
as to what it takes to man up
and make it happen.
Keselowski was an
unlikely winner after he
crashed head-on into a wall
on Wednesday during a test
session at Road Atlanta. He
slammed a section of wall
at 100 mph and was forced
out of the Nationwide Series
race.
He insisted during prac-
tice this weekend he wouldnt
leave the No. 2 Dodge, no
matter the aches and pain.
No relief driver was neces-
sary, though Keselowski had
some rest during a 1 hour,
40-minute rain delay.
I was amazed he raced
the full race, third-place fin-
isher Kurt Busch said.
Keselowskis victory
placed him in prime position
to claim one of two wild-card
spots available for the Chase
for the Championship. The
top two drivers with the most
victories in 11th to 20th place
earn a wild-card spot for the
playoffs.
Keselowski, in 18th place,
is the only one of the wild-
card contenders with two
victories. Only five races
remain until the field is set.
The top 10 drivers in the
points standings automatical-
ly qualify. Keselowski won
his third career Cup race and
first since he won in June at
Kansas.
Keselowski posted sev-
eral updates on his injury this
week on his Twitter page,
including two photos that
showed a swollen ankle and
an abrasion on his foot. His
broken left ankle ballooned
to the size of a softball and
he needed a left shoe a size
larger than his right one.
I came here to win, he
said. When you let the pain
get into your head that far
that you dont believe you
can win anymore, you cant
win the race.
Kyle Busch was second,
Jimmie Johnson fourth and
Ryan Newman fifth.
Kurt Busch and Johnson
had a heated exchange after
the race because of some
last-lap contact and had to
be separated by their crews.
The star drivers took turns
bumping into each other on
the final lap. Busch said it
was simply hard racing and
Johnson, the 5-time defend-
ing Cup champion, overre-
acted.
You want to race, lets
race, Busch added. I raced
him smart, raced him clean
and he wants to come back
here and (complain) about it.
Why cant we race each other
like this and put on a show
for the fans?
There was a racing triple-
header after rain halted
the Trucks Series race on
Saturday and wiped out the
ARCA race. Kevin Harvick
won the Trucks race, Ty
Dillon took ARCA and
Keselowski capped it all with
his gutsy performance.
Rain hit Pocono hard the
last two days and when the
red flag came on lap 125,
Joey Logano had the lead.
Logano faded hard after a
blown tire and finished 26th.
Points leader Carl Edwards,
who signed a multi-year
extension with Roush Fenway
Racing, was seventh.
Once the rain stopped,
Kyle Busch build a sizable
lead until it was wiped out on
a final caution.
That was the opening
Keselowski needed over the
final 16 laps and he took
advantage even with only
one good ankle.
Wilkerson ends yearlong
winless drought in NHRA:
Tim Wilkerson ended a
yearlong winless drought by
racing to his third consecu-
tive Funny Car title at the
OReilly Auto Parts NHRA
Northwest Nationals at
Pacific Raceways in Kent,
Wash., on Sunday.
Wilkerson drove his Ford
Mustang to a 4.146-second
run at 300.53 mph to defeat
Jack Beckman, who finished
in 4.598 at 238.64.
Wilkerson also won here
in 2009 and 2010.
Wilkerson moved up to
ninth in the point standings
with his 17th career victory
and greatly improved his
chances for earning a berth
in the Countdown to the
Championship. The NHRA
playoffs begin Sept. 15-18 in
Charlotte, N.C.
Del Worsham (Top Fuel)
and Jason Line (Pro Stock)
also won their divisions.
Worsham earned his sixth
victory of the season and 31st
of his career by outrunning
Tony Schumacher, posting
a 3.891 at 316.38 to hold
of Schumachers 3.915 at
313.95.
Line took his fourth Pro
Stock win of the season and
25th of his career by beating
teammate Greg Anderson,
making a pass in 6.553 and
210.87 to defeat Anderson,
who trailed with a 6.567 at
211.13.
The NHRA season con-
tinues Aug. 18-21 with the
30th annual Lucas Oil NHRA
Nationals at Brainerd (Minn.)
International Raceway.
Dixon pulls away to win
Mid-Ohio IndyCar: There
were no hand signals
angry or friendly when
Scott Dixon passed team-
mate Dario Franchitti to take
the lead for good during a
restart 24 laps from the fin-
ish of Sundays IndyCar race
at Mid-Ohio in Lexington,
Ohio.
That was as close as the
two Target Chip Ganassi
drivers would come again
until parking on pit row after
Dixon streaked to a comfort-
able win to again show his
mastery over the tight and
treacherous road course at
Mid-Ohio.
Franchitti was coming out
of pit row under a yellow flag
on lap 61 when he pinched
in on Dixon as he was com-
ing out of the home straight.
Dixon took the edge, fought
off several close calls in the
next few laps and then was
never headed.
Franchitti was pleased
that, if he couldnt take the
checkered flag, it was his
teammate who did. He also
said the pass at the end of the
first straight was critical.
The New Zealander always
seems to be on fire when
he visits the twisty 2.258-
mile road course between
Cleveland and Columbus.
The victory gave Dixon wins
at Mid-Ohio in the last three
odd-numbered years in the
IndyCar races five years.
It was the first win of the
season for the 2-time IndyCar
Series champion. Franchitti
continues to lead the driv-
ers standings by 62 points
over Will Power, who start-
ed fourth but finished 14th.
Dixon crept within 29 points
of Power.
Ryan Hunter-Reay was
third.
Dixon dominated qualify-
ing to capture his first pole of
the season and led the early
portion of the race. Then
he stayed on leader James
Hinchcliffes tail from lap 28
to lap 53. He was in no hurry
whatsoever. Hinchcliffe, a
rookie, shrewdly delayed his
first pit stop.
Brad Keselowski wins at

PITTSBURGH The
fading Pittsburgh Pirates fin-
ished up the worst homestand
in their 125-year history and
lost their 10th straight game
overall, beaten by Mat Latos
(6-11) and the San Diego
Padres 7-3 Sunday.
Latos mastery continued
the misery for the Pirates,
who completed an 0-7 stay
at PNC Park against the last-
place Padres and Chicago
Cubs, two teams that were
a combined 39 games under
.500 when the week began.
Pittsburgh was winless
on a homestand of at least
seven games for the first time
in franchise history, STATS
LLC said. No team in the
majors has had a homestand
that long without a win since
Kansas City in May 2006.
The Pirates, in first place
in the NL Central on July
26, were outscored 59-25 by
the Cubs and Padres. The
bad week came after they got
swept in Philadelphia.
A day after the Pirates
held a players-only meeting
following a 13-2 loss, they
trailed 7-0 going into the bot-
tom of the eighth.
Kevin Correia (12-10)
allowed one run on three hits
through 5 2/3 innings before
running into 2-out trouble in
the sixth. He was charged
with four runs on five hits
and four walks, falling to 2-8
at home this season.
Giants 3, Phillies 1
SAN FRANCISCO
Tim Lincecum stayed sharp
until getting hit in the right
knee by Chase Utleys bound-
ing bat and the San Francisco
Giants ended Philadelphias
season-high 9-game winning
streak, tagging Roy Oswalt
and beating the Phillies.
Jeff Keppinger had four
hits as the Giants spoiled
Oswalts return from the
DL. San Francisco avoided a
4-game sweep in a matchup
of NL division leaders.
Lincecum (10-9) went
down in the eighth inning
when Utley accidentally lost
his grip and the bat skittered
toward the mound. Utley went
out to check on Lincecum,
who handed back the bat,
walked it off and stayed in
the game. Utley then hit a
1-out single. Utleys act of
sportsmanship was a far
cry from the bench-clearing
brawl between the clubs
Friday night.
Lincecum left later in the
eighth after Hunter Pence
reached with two outs on
first baseman Aubrey Huffs
error. Javier Lopez relieved
and retired Raul Ibanez on
a fly ball. Brian Wilson fin-
ished for his 34th save in 38
chances.
Oswalt (4-7) gave up a
season-high 12 hits in his first
start since June 23. The right-
hander missed 37 games with
lower back inflammation. He
is 1-7 since beginning the
year 3-0.
Braves 6, Mets 5
NEW YORK Chipper
Jones hit a tie-breaking single
in the ninth inning of a wild
game that included injuries
to New Yorks top two hit-
ters, Jose Reyes and Daniel
Murphy.
Jason Heyward, Alex
Gonzalez and Jose Constanza
homered early for the Braves,
who finally solved rookie
Dillon Gee and handed the
Mets their sixth loss in seven
games. Dan Uggla extended
his hitting streak to a career-
best 28 games.
It was the first major-
league homer for Constanza
he also got his first stolen
base, spiking Murphy in the
process. Reyes, the National

LIMA For the second
week in a row, a rare event
in motorsports, nearly exclu-
sive to Limaland Motorsports
Park, saw a University of
Northwestern Ohio athletic
motorsports driver win an
A-Main feature.
This time, it was in a K &
N UMP Modified as Racer
team driver Kody Weisner
made a late race pass on one
of LMPs greatest names in
the division, multi-time for-
mer champion Terry Hull.
It marked the fourth time in
Racer history for an A-Main
feature win and the second
for Weisner, a winner last
season in a stock car.
Weisners conquest is even
more impressive as four of
the most successful drivers in
Modifieds started in front of
him. Hull, points leader Todd
Sherman and former feature
winners Jerry Bowersock and
Casey Luedeke all had simi-
lar intentions as Weisner, yet
better starting positions.
Hull bolted to the front
when the green flag dropped
with fellow outside row start-
ers Bowersock and Weisner
moving behind him. A pair
of cautions, brought on by
flat tires to Nick Rosselit
and Andy Bibler, set up a
restart on lap 13 with Hull,
Bowersock, Weisner, pole
starter Luedeke and Sherman
racing nose-to-tail.
Weisner drove fearlessly
on the dangerous high side
cushion as it gave him excel-
lent speed. Earlier in the sea-
son, Weisner was running at
the front of a feature when he
crashed into the unforgiving
wall in turn 3. Hull, taking a
lower line around the 1/4-mile
oval, had a shorter distance to
cover. Finally on lap 15, the
Muskegon, Michigan under-
graduate simply powered
his way around Hull coming
thru turn 2. The dominating
move brought the usual big
Limaland Motorsports Park
crowd to its feet in approval.
At that point, I just told
myself dont overdrive and
thats all I could do, recalled
Weisner.
The final five circuits of
the 20-lap event saw Weisner
roar to the victory, with Hull
and Bowersock following
him across the line. The col-
lective Racer Motorsports
athletic team members ran
across the track from the pit
area to celebrate on the front
straight winners circle. It
was a particularly emotional
win for Weisner as his grand-
father passed away just two
days earlier.
This is for him, said
Weisner. He was there for
me since day one. He bought
me a go-cart, just a little yard
cart back in 97 and really
started me racing at about
age 9 or 10. It has progressed
to this and seeing what this
school (UNOH) is about, this
is me.
Racer athletic motorsports
team membership has devel-
oped into coveted positions
for the students, hailing from
all across the United States.
These guys are awesome.
I cant thank them enough
for putting up with us driv-
ers as we sometimes tear up
this stuff, declared Weisner.
Driving is easy when these
guys do all of this for us.
With the set-up and hours we
put in with the cars, working
together as a team, its awe-
some.
The Elwer Fence Sprints
25-lap feature saw the sea-
sons top performer Kyle
Sauder earn a pole starting
position and it served as a
set-up for himself and fellow
front row starter JR Stewart
to dominate the event.
Stewart moved to the lead
with Sauder and Caleb Helms
sticking to him for the open-
ing 15 laps. 2010 track cham-
pion Stewart was fashioning
a high line around the track,
making it nearly impossible
for Sauder to move into a
lead position. Finally on lap
16, Sauder decided to drop
down in the corners and it
proved to be successful. He
gained on Stewart and made
the defining pass through
turn 2 on lap 16.
Following a restart on
lap 21, Sauder proceeded to
floor the throttle on the #7K
machine and stormed to his
third feature win of the sea-
son at the track. He also cap-
tured the Ohio Sprint Speed
week event at LMP in an All-
Star Circuit of Champions
410 Sprint car on June 24.
It was Sauders 10th career
feature win at the track.
Last Saturday, I burned
off my tires and lost the race
at Eldora, said Sauder. The
Good Lord told me to slow
down as slower is faster
sometimes. It showed tonight
as we saved our tires and
looked up at the end. There
was good clean racing with
JR (Stewart) but this is a
much-needed victory for us. I
thank Dave Jessup for putting
this motor back together after
blowing it up a few weeks
ago.
The 15-lap Budweiser
Thunderstocks feature pro-
duced a first-time season
winner as Shawn Valenti of
Lima controlled the 19-car
field with a dominate flag-
to-flag performance. Last
weeks winner, UNOH Racer
Matthew Custer, was ousted
with a flat tire just three laps
into the race. Fellow Racer
Josh Ulrich, runner-up to
Custer a week ago, produced
another impressive outing
as he navigated to the front
and eventually finished in the
second position again.
Its nice that Ill be in
the King of the Quarter Mile,
its prestigious and for stock
cars its something else, said
Valenti. I could see tonight
that the cushion was the place
to be as the bottom was start-
ing to get slicked up; it is our
style to run up there. I thank
the Babcocks for letting me
run this car.
It was Valentis third
career feature win at Limaland
Motorsports Park.
Actions resumes on
Friday as Limaland will host
the Engine Pro NRA Sprint
Invaders vs. 305 Sprints, K
& N UMP Modifieds and the
Budweiser Thunderstocks.
Gates open at 5 p.m. with
hot laps beginning at 6:30
p.m. Racing starts promptly
at 7:30 p.m.

many media around him
after the tournament ended
that all anyone could see was
the Titleist cap not the
familiar Nike TW brand
on his head.
Woods shot a 70 to tie for
37th, 18 shots behind, and
his interview transcript was
only 1 1/2 pages. Williams
didnt hit a shot all day and
a transcript of his interview
was nearly twice as long.
Even more shocking was
how Williams described the
feeling.
Ive caddied for 33 years
145 wins now and
thats the best win Ive ever
had, Williams told CBS
Sports on the 18th green.
This from a guy whose 12
years working for Woods
featured 13 majors and 16
world titles among 72 wins
worldwide. That includes the
2001 Masters, when Woods
won an unprecedented fourth
straight major.
Scott didnt seem to mind
that Williams comment
became a bigger story than
the 31-year-old Australian
going the final 26 holes with-
out a bogey for a win that
moved him up to No. 9 in
the world.
As for the distraction?
Scott is used to it by now.
Williams first worked for
him at the U.S. Open, the first
step toward Woods decid-
ing to end the partnership,
and he has been hounded
by questions all week about
using Woods former caddie
and how much a difference it
would make for him.
It added another chapter
to a saga that never seems
to end with Woods. His left
leg looked good all week.
His scores were pedestrian
but there were signs that his
game is not terribly far off.
And yet the week ends with
him being mocked.
Lost in this soap opera
was a strong golf tournament
and a command performance
not only by Scott, but play-
ers chasing him, including
19-year-old Ryo Ishikawa,
No. 1 Luke Donald and
Rickie Fowler.
Scott and Ishikawa were
tied for a big part of the
front nine and Scott took a
1-shot lead the same one
he started out with on Sunday
into the back nine.
Fowler had a bogey-free
round of 66. Donald also had
a 66 and wound up tied for
second with Fowler.
Ishikawa made a bogey
on the final hole for a 69 and
tied for fourth his best
finish in America with
Jason Day.
Scott finished at 17-under
263, the lowest score to win
at Firestone since Woods had
259 in 2000 in an 11-shot
win.
Reno-Tahoe Open
RENO, Nev. Scott
Piercy hit a 7-foot par putt
on the 616-yard closing hole
in the Reno-Tahoe Open on
Sunday for a 2-under-par 70
to beat Pat Perez by one
stroke at 16-under 273.
Piercy had led by three
strokes with only seven holes
to go. That edge dwindled
to one after he bogeyed and
Perez carded consecutive
birdies.
Piercy started the week
ranked 142nd on the money
list with $365,162 but
now will see his earnings
approach $1 million for the
second time. The first native
Nevadan to win the 13-year-
old tourney also locked up
a spot in next weeks PGA
Championship.
Perez shot a 68 to finish
at 274, his third runner-up
finish to go with one career
tour victory.
Steve Flesch, who won
the 2007 Reno-Tahoe Open,
shot a 68 on Sunday. Blake
Adams had a 69 to tie for
third, another stroke back.
Jim Renner shot a 68 to claim
fifth place at 12 under.
Steve Elkington and first-
round leader Nick OHern
both closed with 71s to finish
in a group another two strokes
back with Matt McQuillan
(66) and Ben Martin (69).
3M Championship
BLAINE, Minn. Jay
Haas finally 2-putted from
about 30 feet for birdie on
the final hole of the 3M
Championship Sunday, beat-
ing Tom Lehman, Kenny
Perry and Peter Senior by
one shot. It was his first tour
victory in two years.
Haas started the day one
shot behind Senior and John
Huston and had a 68 to finish
at 15-under 201, the highest
winning score at the tourna-
ment since 2006.
Hal Sutton (67) fin-
ished two shots back and
Tom Watson (65) and Mark
OMeara (68) were three
behind. Watson made a
70-foot eagle putt on the final
hole, which was statistically
the easiest hole all week.
Huston and Olin Browne
were among a group of nine
players to finish at 11 under.
Browne, who won last
weeks U.S. Senior Open and
started the day 10 shots off
the pace, shot the days low
round, a 9-under 63.
Nationwide Tour
OMAHA, Neb. J.J.
Killeen shot a 3-under 69 to
win for the second straight
week on the Nationwide
Tour, 2-putting from 90 feet
on the final hole to avoid
a 5-way playoff at the Cox
Classic on Sunday.
The former TCU star sank
a 5-footer at the last to fin-
ish at 22-under 262, edging
Jonas Blixt (64), Ken Duke
(66), Gary Christian (65)
and former U.S. Amateur
champion Danny Lee (66) at
Champions Run.
Lee was in the final group
with Killeen and holed a
15-foot birdie to tie the club-
house leaders and put pres-
sure on Killeen.
Big Win
(Continued from page 6)
(Continued from page 6)
League batting leader, was
lifted in the second because of
stiffness in his left hamstring,
the same spot that landed him
on the DL last month.
With the score tied at 5,
Gonzalez opened the ninth
with a single off Bobby Parnell
(3-4). Gonzalez advanced on
Constanzas sacrifice bunt
and scored on Jones single
through the right side.
Jonny Venters (6-1)
worked a hitless inning for
the win.
Freddie Freeman went
0-for-4 for Atlanta, ending
his 20-game hitting streak.
Brewers 7, Astros 3
HOUSTON Zack
Greinke tied a season high by
going seven innings and Prince
Fielder homered to help the
Milwaukee Brewers beat the
Houston Astros for their sixth
straight win.
Fielder had three hits
and scored four runs for the
Brewers, who have won 11-of-
12. Yuniesky Betancourt drove
in three runs; Mark Kotsay
added three hits and an RBI
in place of the injured Corey
Hart.

LOS ANGELES Selena Gomez con-
jured five wins at the Teen Choice
Awards one more than boyfriend
Justin Bieber.
The star of Wizards of Waverly
Place was selected as choice TV
actress, female hottie and music group
with her band The Scene. Gomez and
her ensemble were also awarded the
choice single trophy for Who Says
and love song for Love You Like
a Love Song, which the 19-year-old
actress-singer performed at Sundays
freewheeling fan-favorite ceremony.
This is for all of you guys, Gomez
told the screeching crowd. This isnt
mine.
Bieber, Gomezs 17-year-old actor-
singer boyfriend, picked up four surf-
board-shaped trophies as choice male
music artist, male hottie, twit and TV
villain for his CSI guest starring
role. Other multiple winners included
The Vampire Diaries, Glee, The
Twilight Saga, Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows, Robert Pattinson and
Taylor Swift.
I feel like its been a long time since
I was a teenager, like, two years, Swift
joked.
Swift tied Gomez with five awards:
choice female music artist, country
female artist, female red carpet fashion
icon, country single for Mean and
break-up song for Back to December.
The 21-year-old crooner was also hon-
ored for her contributions to entertain-
ment with the Ultimate Choice Award,
the shows version of a lifetime achieve-
ment award.
The Big Bang Theory leading lady
Kaley Cuoco hosted the 13th annu-
al extravaganza at Universal Studios
Hollywoods Gibson Amphitheatre.
Between dispensing awards like candy,
Cuoco battled Chuck star Zachary
Levi in table tennis, danced alongside
Americas Best Dance Crew winners
Poreotix and jokingly quizzed teenagers
about current affairs.
There were moments of seriousness
amid the silliness. Sean Kingston made
his first live televised appearance since
recovering from injuries he suffered
after crashing a watercraft into a Miami
Beach bridge in May. Demi Lovato,
who entered a treatment facility last
November to deal with emotional and
physical issues, was on hand to accept
two awards.
You guys are what got me through
this last year, she told the audience.
Other winners who picked up surf-
board-shaped trophies included Cameron
Diaz as choice movie comedy actress for
Bad Teacher, Ellen DeGeneres as
choice comedian and Ashton Kutcher as
choice romantic comedy movie actor for
No Strings Attached. Before leading
the crowd in a singalong of Katy Perrys
Teenage Dream, Kutcher provided
some topical advice.
Dont ever charge anything on a
credit card if you dont already have
the money in the bank to pay for it, he
said.
The ceremony ended with a tribute
to the Harry Potter film franchise.
The final two installments apparently
bewitched online voters, winning the
most awards of the night. Harry Potter
swept categories such as choice sci-fi/
fantasy movie, liplock, villain for Tom
Felton and summer movie star for both
Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe,
who accepted his surfboard via satellite
from New York.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.
(AP) The only harder thing
than creating a hit show is
knowing when to end it, said
Marc Cherry as he looked ahead
to the final year of Desperate
Housewives.
As ABC made official that
the hit series would end after
its upcoming eighth season, its
creator, Cherry, joined ABC
Entertainment President Paul
Lee to insist the decision had
been made jointly.
Im very aware that some
shows overstay their welcome
and I didnt want that to happen
with Desperate Housewives,
Cherry told reporters dur-
ing a Sunday session of the
Television Critics Association
conference. We wanted to go
out in the classiest way pos-
sible.
Desperate Housewives, a
glossy prime-time soap opera
with an ensemble cast includ-
ing Teri Hatcher and Eva
Longoria, made a pop-culture
and ratings splash when it pre-
miered in 2004 but has since
seen a fall-off in the ratings and
viewer buzz.
Cherry said he and Lee
began discussions a year ago
about when the series should
be shuttered.
We made this decision
together, he said, and I feel
so good about it. We can have
a whole year to reflect on how
lucky weve been.
We want to make sure it
has its victory lap, Lee said.
Cherry said he had put out
calls to all the shows cast
members in recent days and
spoken to about half of them.
It was bittersweet and
lovely. There was a touch of
shock, but not completely,
Cherry said in describing the
conversations, adding that he
and the stars shared a feeling
of gratitude for the experience
of doing the series.
While dismissing the possi-
bility of a Housewives spinoff,
he mentioned other projects,
including Hallelujah, a pilot
ABC passed on this season but
thats being re-worked.
But he joked that something
simple and quick as a future
series might be a nice change.
Maybe two guys in a
prison cell, Cherry proposed
with a laugh. I need some-
thing easier than Desperate
Housewives.
In a separate announce-
ment, ABC said the celeb-
rity cast for the new season
of Dancing with the Stars
will be unveiled live on Aug.
29 during ABCs airing of
Bachelor Pad. The danc-
ing competition returns for its
13th round on Sept. 19.
Housewives is
facing final season
BY DAVID GERMAIN
The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES Apes
have climbed to the top rung
of the weekend box office.
The 20th Century Fox
action thriller Rise of the
Planet of the Apes took in
$54 million to open as the
No. 1 movie, according to
studio estimates Sunday.
That was about $15 mil-
lion to $20 million more
than analysts expected for
the Apes prequel, though
well below the $68.5 mil-
lion opening of Tim Burtons
Planet of the Apes remake
10 years ago.
Featuring James Franco,
Freida Pinto and Andy
Serkis, Rise of the Planet
of the Apes tells the story
of how lower primates began
evolving to take over Earth
from humans.
The film was well received
by critics, who found it a
smarter-than-average sum-
mer action flick. Its impres-
sive visual effects rely on
performances from Serkis
and other actors as the foun-
dation for photo-realistic
apes created by digital art-
ists.
I think the reviews high-
light the groundbreaking
nature of this movie. When
you have effects that have
never been seen before, peo-
ple respond to that. They
know they have to be seen
to be believed, said Fox
distribution executive Chris
Aronson. The technology
is actually servicing a real-
ly good, strong, emotional
story.
Sonys family tale The
Smurfs remained at No. 2
for the second straight week-
end with $21 million, lifting
its domestic total to $76.2
million.
Universals sci-fi Western
Cowboys & Aliens, which
debuted at No. 1 a week
earlier, narrowly ahead of
The Smurfs, fell to third
with $15.8 million, raising
its total to $67.4 million.
Ryan Reynolds and Jason
Batemans comedy The
Change-Up, also from
Universal, opened a weak
No. 4 with $13.5 million.
The movie centers on two
old friends a successful
but frazzled attorney and
family man, and a womaniz-
ing slacker who magically
trade bodies.
With $12.2 million domes-
tically and $61.8 million
overseas, Harry Potter and
the Deathly Hallows: Part
2 raised its worldwide total
to $1.13 billion. In the past
week, it became this years
top-grossing global release,
passing the $1.04 billion haul
of Pirates of the Caribbean:
On Stranger Tides.
Rise of the Planet of
the Apes added $23.4 mil-
lion in 25 overseas markets,
among them Russia, Spain
and Australia. That gives it a
worldwide total of $77.4 mil-
lion, with the film expanding
to more countries over the
next few weeks.
The films unexpectedly
large domestic haul comes
after a weekend where
Cowboys & Aliens debuted
well below projections while
The Smurfs did far bet-
ter. That resulted in a tie for
the No. 1 spot the previous
Sunday, with Cowboys &
Aliens pulling slightly ahead
once final weekend numbers
were counted Monday.
It just shows you its
nearly impossible to track
what audiences like today,
said Paul Dergarabedian,
an analyst for box-office
tracker Hollywood.com.
Its becoming increasingly
fragmented with audiences
having so many other things
they can do, so many options
for their entertainment. Its
just really hard to figure out
what they want.
Overall, Hollywood has
been doing something right
the last month. This was the
fourth-straight weekend of
rising revenues, with receipts
totaling $164 million, up 23
percent from the same week-
end last year, when The
Other Guys led with $35.5
million.
That has helped Hollywood
continue to nibble down a
revenue deficit compared
with 2010s ticket sales. In
the spring, 2011 domestic
revenues were lagging as
much as 23 percent behind
last years. But a solid sum-
mer has pushed receipts up
to $6.7 billion so far this
year, 4.8 percent less than
2010s income, according to
Hollywood.com.
Estimated ticket sales for
Friday through Sunday at
U.S. and Canadian theaters,
according to Hollywood.com.
Where available, latest inter-
national numbers are also
included. Final domestic fig-
ures will be released today.
1. Rise of the Planet of
the Apes, $54 million ($23.4
million international).
2. The Smurfs, $21 mil-
lion ($45.2 million interna-
tional).
3. Cowboys & Aliens,
$15.8 million.
4. The Change-Up,
$13.5 million.
5. Captain America: The
First Avenger, $13 million
($27.5 million international).
6. Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows: Part 2,
$12.2 million ($61.8 million
international).
7. Crazy, Stupid, Love,
$12.1 million.
8. Friends with Benefits,
$4.7 million.
9. Horrible Bosses, $4.6
million ($7.7 million interna-
tional).
10. Transformers: Dark
of the Moon, $3 million
($17.5 million international).

CHICAGO Playing
sports in hot, steamy weather
is safe for healthy children
and teen athletes, so long as
precautions are taken and the
drive to win doesnt trump
common sense, the nations
largest pediatricians group
says.
New guidelines from
the American Academy
of Pediatrics arrive just as
school sports ramp up in
sultry August temperatures.
The advice, released today,
comes a week after two
Georgia high school football
players died following prac-
tices in 90-plus degree heat.
Authorities were investigat-
ing if the weather contrib-
uted.
The guidelines replace
a more restrictive policy
based on old thinking that
kids were more vulnerable
to heat stress than adults.
New research shows thats
not true, the academy says.
With adequate training,
water intake, time-outs and
emergency treatment avail-
able on the sidelines, healthy
young athletes can play even
in high heat and humidity
within reason, the guidelines
say.
The more educated par-
ents, athletes and staff are
about risks associated with
heat illness, the more likely
they will think twice before
allowing a competitive cul-
ture to overtake sound sen-
sibilities, said Dr. Cynthia
Devore, co-author of the
policy and a physician for
schools in the Rochester, NY
area..
Government data released
last week showed that more
than 3,000 U.S. children
and teens younger than 20
received emergency-room
treatment for nonfatal heat
illness from sports or exer-
cise between 2001 and 2009.
A few young athletes
die annually from heat-
related illness. Over a 13
year period, 29 high school
football players died from
heat stroke, data from the
American Football Coaches
Association and others show.
Football is a special concern,
because players often begin
intense practice during late-
summer heat, wearing uni-
forms and padding that can
be stifling.
Dr. Michael Bergeron, a
University of South Dakota
sports medicine specialist,
said the academys old poli-
cy was often ignored because
it recommended limiting
or avoiding sports even in
common hot weather con-
ditions. The new policy is
more detailed and nuanced.
Pediatricians: Sports in heat OK with precautions
By ELLIOT SPAGAT
The Associated Press
SAN DIEGO An officer shot in the
face in an apparently unprovoked attack died
Sunday, and investigators found a suicide
note left by the suspect who fired the gun,
San Diegos police chief said.
Jeremy Henwood, a four-year veteran of
the department, died a day after being shot
while sitting alone in his patrol car in San
Diego, Chief William Lansdowne said at an
afternoon news conference at police head-
quarters.
I could tell you that this was a sense-
less killing ... this was an assassination,
Lansdowne said.
The armed suspect, Dejon Marquee
White, 23, was tracked down by police after
the attack Saturday and shot to death by offi-
cers as he tried to avoid arrest. Investigators
said they have no motives for the shooting of
the police officer. White wrote a two-page
suicide note discovered at his apartment, but
it didnt say how he was going to kill himself
or why, according to police.
White was a suspect in another shooting
earlier Saturday at an In-N-Out restaurant 14
miles away in El Cajon and had eluded police
after a high-speed chase.
Shortly after the restaurant shooting,
Henwood was either stopped or moving
slowly when a black Audi with temporary
plates flashed its headlights and came along-
side.
According to witnesses, the suspect vehi-
cle pulled up on the left side of the officers
vehicle, pointed a gun out of the passenger
window and fired at the officer, a police
statement said.
Witnesses gave first aid to Henwood
until paramedics arrived and transported the
injured officer to a local hospital.
Henwood, 36, was a captain in the U.S.
Marine Corps Reserves. He had recently
returned from a yearlong deployment in
Afghanistan.
A half hour after the attack, officers
tracked down the Audi to an apartment com-
plex and saw a man carrying a shotgun get in
the car and start to drive away. Several squad
cars blockaded the road and converged on
him to make the arrest.
Cop dies; suspect left suicide note

LONDON British
police today promised a
momentous operation to
arrest rioters after a weekend
of vandalism and looting that
erupted in a disadvantaged
London neighborhood just
miles (kilometers) from the
site of next years Olympic
Games.
Groups of masked and
hooded young people looted
shops, attacked police offi-
cers and set fire to vehicles
in violence that has raised
questions about security
ahead of the 2012 Olympics
and revealed pent-up anger
against the citys police. Over
160 people were arrested.
Around 35 police officers
were injured, including three
hit by a car while trying
to make arrests in northeast
London. Police commander
Christine Jones said offi-
cers were shocked at the
outrageous level of violence
directed against them.
This has changed from
a local issue into organized
criminality, police deputy
assistant commissioner Steve
Kavanagh said today as he
announced a momentous
investigation to track down
the perpetrators.
We will make sure that
this criminality is not allowed
to continue, Kavanagh told
Sky News.
The violence broke out in
the gritty north London sub-
urb of Tottenham on Saturday
night amid community anger
over a fatal police shooting
of a 29-year-old father of
four. Police said copycat
criminal violence spread to
other parts of the city Sunday
night and early today, includ-
ing, briefly, Londons busy
shopping and tourist district
at Oxford Circus.
The protest over the death
of Mark Duggan, who was
gunned down in disputed
circumstances Thursday,
was initially peaceful. But
it turned ugly as up to 500
people gathered around
Tottenhams police station
late Saturday.
Some protesters threw
bottles with gasoline at police
lines while others confronted
officers with baseball bats
and bars and attempted to
storm the station. Two police
cars and a double-decker bus
were set alight, and several
buildings along Tottenhams
main street were set alight
and reduced to smoldering
shells.
Tottenhams main shop-
ping street was still cor-
doned off on today, and local
residents and shop workers
chatted with police at the
barriers. Residents had little
sympathy with the rioters,
and accused them of stealing
from local businesses.
Its nothing to do with the
man who was shot, is it? His
family were doing a peace-
ful protest, said 37-year-old
Marcia Simmons, who has
lived in Tottenham all her
life.
A lot of youths ... heard
there was a protest and joined
in. Others used it as an oppor-
tunity to kit themselves out,
didnt they, with shoes and
T-shirts and everything.
Tottenham was quiet on
Sunday night, but looting
spread to the leafy suburb of
Enfield, a few miles (kilo-
meters) further north, and
to Walthamstow in north-
east London, where, police
said 30 youths vandalized
and looted shops. Another
50 people damaged property
at Oxford Circus in the city
center.
Youths used text mes-
sages and instant messag-
ing to organize and regroup,
often keeping a step ahead
of police.
Tottenham is five miles (8
kilometers) from the Olympic
site and Walthamstow is only
three miles (5 kilometers)
away.
In the south London
neighborhood of Brixton
the scene of riots in the
1980s and 1990s youths
on Sunday night smashed
windows, attacked a police
car, set fire to garbage bins
and stole video games,
sportswear and other goods
from stores.
Its obviously stemmed
from whats happened in
Tottenham, but we are 10
miles away, said Williams
Falade, manager of a gym
that was closed today
because the restaurant next
door had been attacked. It
was like it was an excuse.
Things like this will happen,
but they should happen for
better reasons.
Tottenham has a history
of unrest. It was the site of
the 1985 Broadwater Farm
riots, a series of clashes that
led to the savage stabbing
of a police officer and the
wounding of nearly 60 oth-
ers underscoring tensions
between London police and
the capitals black commu-
nity.
Relations have improved
but mistrust still lingers, and
the shooting of Duggan a
popular figure in the com-
munity has stirred old
animosities.
For civic leaders and
Olympic organizers, the
violence was an unwel-
come reminder of Londons
volatility, less than a year
before the city hosts the 2012
Games.
You can imagine how
stretched the police would be
if this were to occur during
the Olympics, said Tony
Travers, a local government
expert at the London School
of Economics. So I think
this will create a worry with-
in City Hall and the Home
Office.
Its not so much that
this might happen again
unlikely as that it reminds
the people in charge that
while the Olympic Games
are going on, any other major
event is going to be compli-
cated.
Very few details of
Duggans death have been
released, although police
said initially an officer was
briefly hospitalized after
the shooting. Media reports
said a bullet had been found
lodged in the officers radio.
In a bid to calm rumors,
the Independent Police
Complaints Commission,
which is investigating the
shooting, released a state-
ment saying speculation that
Mark Duggan was assassi-
nated in an execution-style
involving a number of shots
to the head are categorically
untrue. It also said a non-
police firearm was recov-
ered at the scene.
But the circumstances of
his death remain unclear.
