60 killed as wave of violence rolls across Iraq
KUT, Iraq (AP) — Bomb blasts ripped through more than a dozen Iraqi cities today, killing 60 security forces and civilians in the worst attack this year, one that highlighted al-Qaida’s resolve and ability to wreak havoc. The bloodbath comes less than two weeks after Iraqi officials said they would be open to a small number of U.S. forces staying in the country past a Dec. 31 withdrawal deadline. The blasts were coordinated to go off this morning and included parked car bombs, roadside bombs, a suicide

bomber driving a vehicle that rammed into a police station and even bombs attached to lightpoles. The scope of the violence — seven explosions went off in different towns in Diyala province alone — emphasized that insurgents are still able to carry out attacks despite repeated crackdowns by Iraqi and U.S. forces. Iraqis were furious at security officials and Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki. See IRAQ, page 3A

ZAWIYA, Libya (AP) — Moammar Gadhafi’s forces pushed rebels back from the center of the strategic city of Zawiya today in fierce fighting to try to prevent the opposition from consolidating a major advance to within 30 miles of the capital Tripoli. In neighboring Egypt, Libyan Interior Minister Nassr al-Mabrouk Abdullah flew into the capital Cairo on his private plane with nine family members, Egyptian airport officials said. He came from Tunisia and entered on a tourist visa in what could be a high-level

‘The Avengers’ starts filming

TOLEDO (AP) — Authorities have found the body of a man who disappeared in a pond at suburban apartment complex outside Toledo. The Blade reports the man apparently had been swimming in the pond early Sunday when he went missing. Seventeen-year-old Brianna Baumgartner tells the newspaper she lives in the apartment complex and began hearing screams about someone going under the water shortly before 1 a.m. Baumgartner says several neighbors jumped into the pond to search for the man. The Blade says the man’s family watched nearby as rescue divers searched the water. Authorities pulled the man’s body from the water late Sunday morning. His name was not immediately released.

“Where is the government with all these explosions across the country? Where is al-Maliki? Why doesn’t he come to see?” said Ali Jumaa Ziad, a shopowner in Kut, where the worst of the violence occurred. Ziad was brushing pieces of human flesh from the floor and off equipment in his shop. Al-Maliki’s spokesman and the military spokesman did not answer telephone calls. Twin explosions rocked the market in Kut, 100 miles (160 kilometers) southeast of Baghdad, where Ziad works. Police spokesman Lt. Col. Dhurgam Mohammed Hassan said the first bomb went off in a freezer used to keep drinks cold. As rescuers and onlookers gathered, a parked car bomb exploded; 35 people were killed and 64 injured. Police sealed off the area where human flesh was scattered on the ground and bloodstained walls were punctured by shrapnel. Earlier this month, Iraqi political leaders announced

they would begin negotiations with the U.S. to determine whether to keep a small number of American forces in the country past Dec. 31. All U.S. troops must leave by the end of this year, but both Iraqi and U.S. officials have expressed concern about the ability of Iraqi forces to protect the country. Theodore Karasik, a Middle East security expert at the Dubai-based Institute for Near East and Gulf Military Analyst, said al-Qaida in Iraq is trying to disrupt the internal Iraqi political process and send a message to the Americans. “It seems that al-Qaida in Iraq is playing a propaganda game at the same time it’s trying to show that it can still carry out deadly violence,” Karasik said. “If the U.S. extends its military presence, al-Qaida in Iraq can use it as a tool by saying, ‘Look, the Americans have reversed their decision to leave and are staying on as occupiers.’ They could use this as a justification for more attacks.” In Diyala province, seven bombs went off in the capital

of Baquba and towns nearby, said Faris al-Azawi, the province’s health spokesman. Five soldiers were killed in Baquba while five people were killed in other attacks around the province. Just outside the holy city of Najaf, a suicide car bomber plowed his vehicle into a checkpoint outside a police building, said Luay al-Yassiri, head of the Najaf province security committee. Police opened fire when the driver refused to stop, and then the vehicle exploded. Al-Yassiri said four people were killed and 32 injured. Firefighters sprayed water on burning cars while a body covered with a red sheet was loaded into a police vehicle. Outside the nearby city of Karbala, a parked car bomb near a police station killed three policemen and injured 14 others, according to two police officers. In the northern city of Tikrit, two men wearing explosives belts drove into a heavily guarded government compound wearing military

uniforms, which helped them avoid notice, said Mohammed al-Asi, the provincial spokesman. The men parked their vehicle and walked to a building where the anti-terrorism police work. When the men approached the building, the guards ordered them to stop and opened fire. One bomber was killed but the other got inside, blew himself up and killed three people, al-Asi said. It was another embarrassing security breach for security officials at the compound. Earlier this year, insurgents penetrated the compound’s security and attacked a mosque where prominent officials were praying. In the northern city of Kirkuk, a car bomb exploded next to a police patrol, injuring four police officers. About 30 minutes later, a motorcycle with a bomb planted inside it exploded, killing one person. Late Sunday, four bombs also blew up near a Syrian Orthodox Church in Kirkuk. No one was injured in the

attack which damaged the church walls. In Baghdad, a parked car bomb exploded near a convoy carrying officials from the Ministry of Higher Education, police and health officials said. Eight people were wounded, the officials said. The minister was not in the convoy. According to police and hospital officials around the country, other attacks included: — A parked car bomb targeting a police patrol in Iskandiriyah killed two people. — One person was killed when bombs strapped to lightpoles in the northern city of Mosul exploded. — A parked car bomb exploded near an Iraqi military patrol in Taji north of Baghdad, killing one person. — Sixteen people were injured in the city of Balad when a roadside bomb went off near a fuel truck. All the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

CLEVELAND (AP) — The cameras are about to start rolling in Cleveland for the Marvel Studios superhero movie “The Avengers.” The Plain Dealer reports movie crews have been turning a city street into what appeared to be a battleground, putting crushed cars and pieces of buildings in place ahead of the start of filming on Monday. The newspaper says crews transformed nearby buildings to look like storefronts for a bagel shop, a bank and a car dealership. The set has been drawing film and comic book fans who snapped photos as technicians prepared the scene. Marvel Studios has been tight-lipped about the movie’s plot. It features the Marvel comics superheros, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow.

Traditionally, heart & lung surgery has required large open incisions. Now with robotic surgery, you can get the same procedures through tiny incisions less than a centimeter each. And because it’s so advanced, surgeons can operate more precisely than with human hands alone. As a patient, you can look forward to a faster recovery with less pain and scarring. Operations that might have taken months to recover from through conventional surgery now require only a fraction of the time. That means a quicker return to the things you love.

Obama sets sights on rural areas to talk jobs
By KEN THOMAS Associated Press WASHINGTON — Trading Washington’s hot house for states critical to his re-election prospects, President Barack Obama is headed to the Midwest after a summer of discontent over a protracted debt showdown with Republicans and the downgrade in the nation’s credit rating. Obama’s bus tour, his first as president, begins today and will take him to prairie communities in Minnesota and through Iowa and Illinois, with stops in the farmland and rural towns that launched his first White House bid. The former Illinois senator is expected to tell audiences that he agrees with their frustrations about a dysfunctional federal government. “What we’ve seen in Washington the last few months has been the worst kind of partisanship, the worst kind of gridlock — and that gridlock has undermined public confidence and impeded our efforts to take the steps we need for our economy,” Obama said Thursday in Michigan. “It’s made things worse instead of better.” Obama won a clean sweep in 2008 of Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan, a region that has supported Democratic presiBy DONNA CASSATA Associated Press dential candidates since 2000, except for President George W. Bush’s narrow victory in Iowa in 2004. But Obama’s standing in these states, like elsewhere, has grown precarious as the economy has slumped. Republican governors are now in charge in three of those five states and Obama’s approval rating, as measured by Gallup, is hovering around 50 percent in most of the region. “We got a president who got a decrease in the credit rating of our nation, and that’s because our president simply doesn’t understand how to lead and how to grow an economy,” Republican hopeful Mitt Romney said in Thursday’s Iowa debate. Romney and his GOP rivals blamed Obama for the growth of the federal deficit and the credit downgrade by Standard and Poor’s, the first in the nation’s history. The GOP race intensified with Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s entry Saturday. When Obama arrives at a town hall meeting in Decorah, Iowa, today afternoon, Perry intends to meet with voters in eastern Iowa, about 100 miles away. Nationally, Obama’s approval rating is comparable to President Ronald Reagan’s ratings in August 1983. But recent Gallup polls found that Obama’s approval rating was

IT WAS NEWS THEN

Economy gets summer lift from retail spending

‘Doomsday’ defense cuts loom large
WASHINGTON — For the dozen lawmakers tasked with producing a deficitcutting plan, the threatened “doomsday” defense cuts hit close to home. The six Republicans and six Democrats represent states where the biggest military contractors — Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics Corp., Raytheon Co. and Boeing Co. — build missiles, aircraft, jet fighters and tanks while employing tens of thousands of workers. The potential for $500 billion more in defense cuts could force the Pentagon to cancel or scale back multibillion-dollar weapons programs. That could translate into significant layoffs in a fragile economy, generate millions less in tax revenues for local governments and upend lucrative company contracts with foreign nations. The cuts could hammer Everett, Wash., where some of the 30,000 Boeing employees are working on giant airborne refueling tankers for the Air Force, or Amarillo, Texas, where 1,100 Bell Helicopter Textron workers assemble the fuselage, wings, engines and transmissions for the V-22 By THOMAS BEAUMONT Associated Press Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft. Billions in defense cuts would be a blow to the hundreds working on upgrades to the Abrams tank for General Dynamics in Lima, Ohio, or the employees of BAE Systems in Pennsylvania. For committee members such as Sens. Patty Murray, D-Wash., Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Pat Toomey, R-Pa., the threat of Pentagon cuts is an incentive to come up with $1.5 trillion in savings over a decade. Failure would have brutal implications for hundreds of thousands workers back home and raise the potential of political peril for the committee’s 12. “I think we all have very good reasons to try to prevent” the automatic cuts, Toomey told reporters last week when pressed about the impact on Pennsylvania’s defense industry. “That is not the optimal outcome here, the much better outcome would be a successful product from this committee.” The panel has until Thanksgiving to come up with recommendations. If they deadlock or if Congress rejects their proposal, $1.2 trillion in automatic, acrossthe-board cuts kick in. Up to $500 billion would hit the Pentagon.

hovering between 44 percent and 49 percent in 10 states closely watched by his political advisers. Those states include Iowa, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida. Obama’s standing with independents, who helped him win in traditionally Republican states such as Indiana and North Carolina, has fallen, too. “The country is in an unbelievably angry mood,” said Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg. Most presidents like to get away from the nations’ capital, and this excursion couldn’t come at a better time. As a candidate, Obama said he would tame Washington’s gridlock. Yet it was political paralysis that scuttled his quest for a “grand bargain” with congressional Republicans on increasing the country’s borrowing limit and forced him to agree to smaller spending cuts without higher taxes on the rich, as he demanded. Days later, Standard & Poor’s downgraded the U.S. credit rating and stocks on Wall Street plummeted, undermining confidence in an economic turnaround. The Federal Reserve said Tuesday that economic growth had been “considerably slower” than expected this year and outlined a glum forecast.

Bachmann, Perry appear at Iowa GOP fundraiser
WATERLOO, Iowa — The two fastest-rising stars in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination worked to broaden their appeal Sunday in Iowa. Michele Bachmann, fresh off her win in a closely watched test vote, portrayed herself as a mainstream Midwesterner. Newcomer Rick Perry introduced himself as a common-sense executive focused on jobs. Both candidates attended the same county GOP dinner in northern Iowa one day after the race was upended by Bachmann’s victory in the Iowa straw poll and Perry’s announcement of his candidacy. And while both candidates have strong ties to the influential evangelical wing of the party and are popular with upstart tea party supporters, they told activists at the Black Hawk County GOP’s Lincoln Day dinner in Waterloo that they have credibility on the party’s leading priority: jobs. “I happen to think the biggest issue facing this country is that we are facing economic turmoil, and if we don’t have a president that doesn’t get this country working, we’re in trouble,” Perry told about 300 Republicans in Waterloo’s Electric Park Ballroom. “And I’ve got a track record.” Bachmann touted her experience running her family’s small business in Minnesota “We started our own successful small company,” she told reporters. “We know how to build from scratch, putting capital together and starting a business from scratch and building it up so that we can actually offer jobs to people.” A segment of the GOP’s establishment and economic conservatives have sat on the sidelines in the early months of the race, waiting for an alternative to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Support for Romney, positioning himself as the Republican most associated with job creation, has been muted in some parts of the GOP primary electorate. Perry was mobbed by dozens of reporters for his first appearance as a candidate in the leadoff caucus state. It was a sharp contrast to another part of the room, where presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, moved through the crowd with less commotion.

Those cuts, starting in 2013, would be in addition to the $350 billion, 10-year reduction already dictated by the debt-limit bill approved by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama this month. Not surprisingly, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has described the automatic cuts as the “doomsday mechanism.” He’s warned that the prospect of nearly $1 trillion in reductions over a decade would seriously undermine the military’s ability to protect the United States. For the Pentagon, “we’re talking about cuts of such magnitude that everything is reduced to some degree,” said Loren Thompson, a defense analyst at the Lexington Institute, a think tank. “At that rate, you’re eliminating the next generation of weapons.” Committee members will face competing pressures as they try to produce a deficitreducing plan. As chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a possible successor to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton if Obama wins a second term, Sen. John Kerry is certain to be protective of the budget for the State Department. Perry struggled to move from table to table. “It’s going to be a big time,” Perry told Cedar Falls Republican Jeanie Balthazor. In the 24 hours between Perry’s announcement in Charleston, S.C., and his arrival in Iowa, the ground had shifted profoundly. Bachmann, a Minnesota congresswoman, beat her home-state rival Tim Pawlenty by more than 2-to1 in the Iowa straw poll, an early test of caucus campaign strength. Pawlenty, a former two-term Minnesota governor, had put all his chips on a strong showing in the poll. But his distant third-place finish, behind Texas Rep. Ron Paul, prompted Pawlenty to quit the race Sunday morning. Bachmann, on the other hand, rose sharply to the top of Iowa polls since launching her campaign in June, and made an aggressive push for straw poll support with evangelical pastors and Christian home-school backers. Bachmann waited on her campaign bus in the ballroom parking lot while Perry spoke at the fundraiser, and entered the hall to her trademark introduction theme, Elvis Presley’s version of “Promised Land.”

Jefferson, Bath notch scrimmage tie
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com BATH TOWNSHIP — Jefferson head football coach Larry “Bub” Lindeman wanted to see improvement from his team’s Tuesday scrimmage as they took on host Bath on a sunny and warm Saturday morning. He got just that, so the 2-2 tie was not the most important thing on his mind. “We were a lot crisper than Tuesday. I or my coaches don’t look at the score during a scrimmage like this; we look at the Xs and Os, the execution,” Lindeman explained. “We wanted to see better play on both sides of the ball than what we saw against Wayne Trace and we got what we wanted.” After the teams took turns practicing their extra points and field goals, Bath started the 10-play portion of the scrimmage by scoring on a 17-yard touchdown toss from Brad Davis to Mitch Laman. Jefferson’s only score in that span was a 40-yard interception return by senior Shayn Klinger. The Red and White — who also intercepted a pass during Bath’s second series — did reach the host 1 on its next series but fumbled. “We knew Bath would be a physical team and that is what we wanted. I liked how we responded after they came out the way they did,” Lindeman continued. “It took us a while to get used to the speed of the scrimmage but we bounced back. We got better, which is

Keegan Bradley: From mountaintop to major champion
By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Keegan Bradley was 12 years old, standing on top of the mountain in the middle of another brutal Vermont winter. Like any New England kid, he loved to ski. Got pretty good at it, too. But, with the sleet pounding his face and the cold piercing through his bones, he decided there was a better way down. “This is not as much fun as golf,” he told himself. “I love golf so much more.” Good call. Bradley won a major championship on his very first try Sunday; if that wasn’t extraordinary enough, look at the way he did it. The 25-year-old trailed Jason Dufner by five strokes with three holes to play in the PGA Championship, his chances seemingly snuffed out when he dumped his ball in the water at the 15th hole and made triple bogey. But the youngster pulled himself together, made two straight birdies and wound up in a 3-hole playoff when Dufner bogeyed three in a row. From there, Bradley took control. Considering what he faced on a mountaintop, Atlanta Athletic Club was a breeze. He made a birdie at the first extra hole, drilling a laser of an approach to 4 feet on No. 16 after Dufner nearly holed out. He safely cleared the pond at the par-3 17th and went another stroke up when Dufner 3-putted. Then, one last bit of bravado at the 18th — a gutty 5-iron that cleared even more water to set up the clinching par. The Wanamaker Trophy was his. “I can’t believe this thing is sitting next to me,” he said, looking at the gleaming silver cup. Considering his pedigree — his aunt, Pat Bradley, is an LGPA Hall-of-Famer — this wasn’t so improbable at all. “I grew up going to Pat’s tournaments and totally idolizing her and wanting to be like her,” the nephew recalled. “I remember as a kid going to her tournaments and literally staring her in the face and ... she was so into it, she would not even recognize me. And I thought that was cool.” Dufner will join those heart-wrenching players who let a major championship slip away, his meltdown remembered alongside Scott Hoch blowing that 18-inch putt at the Masters and Jan Van de Velde throwing away that 3-shot lead on the 72nd hole of the British Open. The 34-year-old journeyman had never won a tour event, much less a tournament of this magnitude. But he played rock-solid for nearly all of four days, hitting more fairways than anyone, avoiding the water and sand and rough lurking at every turn. Tiger Woods couldn’t do it. Neither could defending PGA champion Martin Kaymer. They were among the big names sent packing before the weekend. Showing little emotion, Dufner arrived at the 15th tee on Sunday with a commanding 4-stroke lead. The last four holes at Atlanta can be a killer but he had played them at a cumulative 3 under over the first three days. No problem, right? Wrong. Suddenly, the guy who had been unflappable couldn’t hit

Hunter-Reay wins rain-shortened IndyCar race
By HOWARD ULMAN The Associated Press
LOUDON, N.H. — Ryan Hunter-Reay heard the urgent call on his radio. “They’re wrecking behind you!” his pit crew warned him as a light rain fell. “They’re wrecking behind you.” That collision with 10 laps to go made a mess of the finish of the first IndyCar race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway since 1998 — and made a winner of Hunter-Reay. The crash occurred seconds after a decision to resume the race on a wet track that angered drivers. Will Power even flashed an obscene gesture at race officials after being involved in the wreck. That brought out the caution flag and, a short time later, the race was declared over 10 miles short of its scheduled 225-mile distance on the mile oval. Brian Barnhart, IndyCar’s vice president of competition, said he made the wrong decision. “It was no condition to race in. Shame on him,” Power said. “We worked so hard for that all day. I’m ashamed of myself for losing it. I have to say I was as angry as I’ve ever been when I got out of the car.” Barnhart added he hadn’t considered whether to penalize Power. The trouble began when Danica Patrick spun sideways, causing a chain reaction that involved Power and Takuma Sato, who had been involved in a collision midway through the race that knocked out series points leader Dario Franchitti. “That was definitely my mistake,” said Patrick, who felt the final restart was wrong. “I got on the throttle and (the car) came around. I take full responsibility for that one and the mess it created. ... I’m one to finish races and be smart and get through it all but it was pretty slippery out there.” Michael Andretti — owner of Andretti Autosports, which has Hunter-Reay and Patrick — was livid. “This is the worst officiating I’ve ever seen,” he said. Others felt the same. “It was really wet out there and we shouldn’t have gone out,” said runner-up Oriol Servia. Barnhart explained he received input from his group of spotters and officials but said it was a difficult decision because the rain was very light. But he knew immediately after making it that it was the wrong one. “As soon as you had the guys stand on the gas out there, you saw right away it was the wrong decision,” he said. “At that point in time, you’re just kind of sick to your stomach and realize it was an error on race control’s standpoint and, clearly, my fault.” At least one person tried to view the finish in a positive way, even the shot captured by a television camera of Power raising two middle fingers toward officials. “I’d like to put it on our ticket brochure for next year,” said track general manager Jerry Gappens, hoping to build interest in the event. This year’s race — the first IndyCar race at the track in 13 years — was part of a 1-year contract. IndyCar series CEO Randy Bernard reported discussions would be held about whether to return next year. Power’s fifth-place finish moved him 47 points behind Franchitti, who started the day 63 points ahead, with five races left. Officials reverted to the race order that existed before the final restart, leaving Servia in second place and Scott Dixon in third. But Servia said he should have won because he took the lead during the final restart. Dixon claimed he also passed Hunter-Reay and should have finished second. “I just don’t understand race control’s thinking,” Dixon added. “It isn’t make things up as you go racing. It is IndyCar racing with rules.” But Barnhart added “it was the right thing” to revert to the order before the restart because he had made a bad decision that put drivers in jeopardy and caused costly damage to several cars. After Franchitti’s race ended early, Hunter-Reay took the lead and held it most of the way for his fifth win in 113 IndyCar races. He came in third in two of his three previous races and now has five consecutive top 10 finishes after managing just one in his other eight. He wished his win “was in a little bit different way but we’ll absolutely take it after the year we’ve had.” The start of the race was moved up by a half hour in hopes of avoiding rain predicted for late in the afternoon. The crashes began on the very first lap when Mike Conway spun sideways coming out of Turn 2 and hit Graham Rahal. Both ended up on the grass and were out just seconds into the race. Then, moments after the first restart, Helio Castroneves also spun coming out of Turn 2. He continued after repairs but never was a factor. A light rain began falling on about the 70th lap and the yellow flag came out six laps later for moisture on the track. After 33 laps under the caution flag, the race restarted with Franchitti in the lead followed by Sato and Servia. Then Franchitti was knocked out. “It was my fault,” Sato said. “I was too close to Dario and had debris in my eye. ... I’m sorry about that.” Soon after, another crash ended the day for Tony Kanaan and Tomas Scheckter. The last caution flag came out on the 206th lap because of more moisture on the track. At that point, the top three cars were driven by Hunter-Reay, Servia and Dixon. Then came the final, illfated restart.
Anyone interested in buying a used race car? The IndyCar Series will have plenty of used cars to dispose of once it switches to a new model being designed by the Italian firm Dallara. Officials aren’t sure what to do with the current cars, whose technology is nearly a decade old. There has been talk of using it in the developmental Indy Lights Series, or whether it should be retired or updated into show cars. Loudon the Lobster: HunterReay received a bonus for winning the first IndyCar race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in 13 years. During the trophy presentation, he received “Loudon,” a giant New England lobster that required both of the surprised driver’s hands to hold. Rico’s ride: Former Boston Red Sox shortstop Rico Petrocelli thought he had gone fast when he took his Corvette up to 130 mph on the way to training camp one spring. That, he said, was as fast as he ever went until getting strapped into the back of a 2-seat IndyCar and doing a few laps around the track at NHMS. “I thought I was going to come out of the car even though I was strapped in pretty tight. I thought ‘Uh oh. Here I go. That’s it. Goodbye, Dear’,” said Petrocelli. “It was a thrill.” Now a motivational speaker, Petrocelli spoke during chapel services before the race Sunday. He added his only exposure to auto racing while growing up in Brooklyn was the Indy 500, so when he was offered the ride Sunday by Indy Racing Experience, he quickly accepted. No go for aero: Plans to allow teams to use different aero kits to add to cars and make them more aerodynamic have been put off until 2013 because of their cost. Each team will use the same default aero kit for oval tracks and another default kit for road courses next year on the new car being built by Dallara, an Italian company. Each driver will use that same chassis, replacing the one that has been used since 2003. Watkins Glen postponed: Marcos Ambrose should be on pins and needles. He says he’s not. “No, not at all,” Ambrose said Sunday after NASCAR postponed the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International because of rain. “It keeps me relaxed. You can’t fight the weather, so I just worry about stuff you can control. I’ve got the kids here with me, so I’m going to play with them a little bit and chill out.” Steady rain that began just when the race was scheduled to start at 1 p.m. and did not abate in time for track crews to dry the 2.45-mile racing surface. They did give it a shot with jet driers that got the front straightaway nearly race-ready but a second front moved in, forcing the postponement. The race is now scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. today but rain also is in the forecast in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. Ambrose will start third behind Kyle Busch, who won the pole at 126.421 mph, and AJ Allmendinger.

it straight. He put his tee shot at 15 in the water and made bogey. He put his approach at 16 in a bunker and made another bogey. Finally, he needed three putts to get down at 17 — a third straight bogey. Playing up ahead in the next-to-last group, Bradley bounced back from his triple bogey with two straight birdies. When a 35-foot putt disappeared into the cup at the 17th, he broke into a Tiger-like celebration — the left hand holding up his club, the right hand delivering a furious fist pump. Dufner was watching all that from the elevated tee box. He sensed his title might be slipping away. When it was done, he seemed more numb than disappointed. It might take a while for this one to sink in. “I’m so new at this situation, I don’t know if I appreciate it as much as I will,” Dufner said. “Maybe when I look back in 15 or 20 years, I’ll be disappointed if I don’t get another chance. But I have a feeling I’ll have more chances in a major to close one out.” That’s probably what Hoch and Van de Velde thought. Their second chance never came. For Bradley, the future looks brighter than ever. He’s always been a guy who stayed out of the limelight, even with his famous name and impressive rookie season. He already had a win, capturing the Byron Nelson in a playoff back in May. Even so, everyone touted guys such as Dustin Johnson and Anthony Kim as the future of American golf in a world no longer dominated by Woods. Well, make room for another. Bradley was the one — not Johnson or Kim — who ended the longest American drought of the modern Grand Slam era, a winless stretch covering six straight majors since Phil Mickelson won the 2010 Masters. He knows life is about to change and he’s happy with that, too. He doesn’t intend to be a one-major wonder, either. There’s been plenty of those, especially at the PGA, everyone from Shaun Micheel to Rich Beem.
Nationwide Tour SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Steve Friesen won the Price Cutter Charity Championship on Sunday for his first Nationwide Tour title, birdieing the final three holes for an 8-under 64 and a 5-stroke victory. Frisen, the 34-year-old former Nebraska player making only his second tour start of the year, finished at 26-under 262 on the Highland Springs course. He opened with rounds of 62, 68 and 68. Friesen earned a spot in the field with a 49th-place tie last week in the Cox Classic in Omaha. He earned $112,500 to move to No. 23 on the money list. The final top 25 will earn 2012 PGA Tour cards. Gavin Coles (66) was second; Paul Claxton (66), Cliff Kresge (67), Ted Potter Jr. (67) and Josh Broadaway (69) tied for third at 20 under. US Women’s Amateur BARRINGTON, R.I. — Danielle Kang became the first player in 15 years to successfully defend the U.S. Women’s Amateur title, beating Thailand’s Moriya Jutanugarn 6 and 5 on Sunday in the 36-hole final in rainy and windy conditions at Rhode Island Country Club. Kang, the 18-year-old Pepperdine star from Westlake Village, Calif., had a 4-up lead after 18 holes and finished off Jutanugarn with a par on the par-4 13th. Kang had 11 birdies — three conceded — and one bogey in 31 holes. Kang, who plans to turn pro, won last year at Charlotte Country Club in North Carolina. Kelli Kuehne was the last player to win two straight years, accomplishing the feat in 1995-96. The 17-year-old Jutanugarn was the low amateur last month in the U.S. Women’s Open. Her 15-year-old sister, Ariya, her caddie, won the U.S. Girls’ Junior two weeks ago. They were trying to become the first family members to claim two USGA titles in the same year.

The Associated Press National League ATLANTA — The Chicago Cubs stopped Dan Uggla’s 33-game hitting streak and rallied from a 4-run deficit to beat the Atlanta Braves 6-5 on Sunday. The Braves led 4-0 through five innings and 5-4 through six but Carlos Pena hit a go-ahead 2-run homer in the seventh for Chicago against Eric O’Flaherty (1-4), his 23rd homer. Uggla went 0-for-3 with an RBI, ending the longest hitting streak in the majors in five years. His best chance to extend the streak came in the fifth but second baseman Darwin Barney made a diving catch of his fly ball in shallow right field. Uggla grounded out to shortstop against Jeff Samardzija in the seventh in his final at-bat. He didn’t come up in the ninth, when Carlos Marmol earned his 28th save. Cubs have won 11-of-14, including 2-of-3 from the Braves. Chicago has won four straight series for the first time since Sept. 9-21, 2008.

John Grabow (3-0) got the victory; Diamondbacks 5, Mets 3 PHOENIX — Justin Upton homered, Paul Goldschmidt doubled twice and Arizona earned its sixth consecutive win. Diamondbacks starter Jason Marquis, acquired in a July 30 trade from Washington, was hit on the right shin by a line drive in the third and left the game one inning later with a broken shinbone. Goldschmidt doubled and scored on Henry Blanco’s double to give Arizona a 4-3 lead in the sixth inning. Zach Duke (3-4), who came on in relief of Marquis, allowed two runs and four hits over 2 2/3 innings and David Hernandez pitched the ninth for his 11th save. New York’s Chris Capuano (9-11) allowed four runs and nine hits over six innings. Brewers 2, Pirates 1, 10 innings MILWAUKEE — Nyjer Morgan hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to help Milwaukee complete a 3-game series sweep. The Brewers now have won all

eight games against the Pirates this season and 12 straight over the last two years at Miller Park. The last time the Pirates won at Miller Park was April 28, 2010. The Pirates have won just two of the team’s last 36 games in Milwaukee. With one out in the 10th, George Kottaras singled to left and Casey McGehee followed with a double. Morgan then hit the first pitch from Chris Resop (3-4) to deep right field and Kottaras scored for the win. Takashi Saito (3-1) pitched a scoreless 10th inning to get the win. Cardinals 6, Rockies 2 ST. LOUIS — Albert Pujols hit the longest home run at 6-year-old Busch Stadium and St. Louis overcame an injury to starter Edwin Jackson with stellar bullpen work. Yadier Molina had three hits, a walk and two RBIs for St. Louis, which remained five games behind NL Central-leading Milwaukee with 42 games to go, six of them against the Brewers. Mark Ellis homered in the first for the Rockies, who have lost 4-of-5.

MLB CAPSULES

Esmil Rogers (6-2) issued a careerhigh seven walks, one intentional, in five innings. Colorado has lost six of its last seven in St. Louis and trails the all-time series 82-81. Pujols’ 2-run drive in the first was estimated at 465 feet. Jackson (2-1) has a 4.62 ERA in four starts over 25 1/3 innings with six homers since coming to St. Louis in a deal that sent outfielder Colby Rasmus to the Blue Jays. Padres 7, Reds 3 CINCINNATI — San Diego scored four runs in the third inning Sunday off an ailing Dontrelle Willis, who left during the rally with a sore forearm. Willis (0-3) left during the 4-run rally, shaking and flexing his pitching hand. He’ll be examined again today. A day after the Reds hit seven homers, they were limited to just four hits, including Jay Bruce’s 3-run shot off Wade LeBlanc (1-2). James Darnell had a pair of runscoring singles for the Padres. Orlando Hudson also tripled home a run. The Reds had won four in a row, one shy of their season high.

Giants 5, Marlins 2 MIAMI — Ryan Vogelsong pitched into the eighth inning to earn his careerhigh 10th win and San Francisco hit four home runs. Cody Ross ended the Giants’ major league-record streak of 21 consecutive solo homers when he hit a 2-run shot in the third inning. It was the first non-solo homer for San Francisco since July 6. Nate Schierholtz started a new streak with a solo homer in the fourth. Brandon Belt, recalled Saturday from Triple-A, hit solo homers in the sixth and eighth. Vogelsong (10-2) struck out eight while allowing two runs and four hits in 7 2/3 innings, lowering his ERA to 2.47. Ramon Ramirez came on to retire Brett Hayes with two on and two out in the ninth for his second save in three chances. Florida’s Chris Volstad (5-9) gave up four runs and seven hits in six innings. Dodgers 7, Astros 0 LOS ANGELES — Hiroki Kuroda pitched seven strong innings, Justin

Sellers hit a 3-run drive for his first major-league homer and the Dodgers finished a sweep of the 3-game series. Matt Kemp matched his career high with his 28th homer for the Dodgers, who had lost four in a row before the lowly Astros came to Chavez Ravine. Dioner Navarro also went deep and scored twice. Kuroda (8-14) allowed five singles, struck out six and walked one. Kuroda’s last five victories have come in games in which he didn’t allow a run, dating to his 2-0 win at Pittsburgh on May 11. The rebuilding Astros have dropped a season-worst six straight games. Jordan Lyles (1-7) gave up seven runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings, including all three home runs. ----American League CHICAGO — Brent Lillibridge hit a 3-run homer, John Danks pitched six strong innings and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 6-2 on Sunday.

uine threat. Gossard then had a mechanical break allowing Valenti to take over on lap 11 and roar to his second consecutive win. “I really have momentum going into these last two races, with trying to make up the points,” exclaimed Valenti afterward. “We were racing Kevin hard as he had a fast car. I think he had a drive shaft come out. It’s just awesome for me to be here on the front stretch” Valenti was a close third in the points chase entering the evening, behind Keith Ralston and race runner-up Tony Anderson. There are two events remaining on the 2011 calendar. Indiana’s Tommy Beezley was another of the outside front row starters that found the high-side racing groove to his liking. He led all 20 laps of the K & N UMP Modified feature but not after holding off a serious threat from veteran Jeff Babcock. “It was awesome up there on the top,” said Beezley after his second feature win of the season. “It was the first I’ve really been up there all year and I was able to hold off Jeff as he was coming pretty hard. I thought he might slide by me but here we are.” Points leader Todd Sherman finished 10th after starting 17th. He was involved in a collision at the start of his heat race that forced needed repairs.

NFL PRESEASON

The Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS — Seimone Augustus scored 16 points and the Minnesota Lynx handed the Tulsa Shock their WNBA record-tying 17th straight loss with an 82-54 victory on Sunday night. In a matchup of the teams with the best and worst records in the league, the Lynx (18-5) won their 11th in 12 games, while Tulsa fell to 1-22. Lindsay Whalen chipped in 12 points and nine assists for Minnesota. Sheryl Swoopes scored nine points for the Shock, who will try to avoid setting a new league record for consecutive losses when they face the Los Angeles Sparks at home next Sunday. Tulsa is tied with the Atlanta Dream, who lost the first 17 games of their inaugural 2008 season. The victory allowed Minnesota to match its franchise record for victories

WNBA CAPSULES

LIMA — An important aspect of motorsports has always been to put yourself in a position to win late in the race. For defending Engine Pro NRA Sprint Invaders champion Butch Schroeder, that was never more a reality than the NRA-305 Challenge presented by Cappies Sports Wear Friday night at Limaland Motorsports Park, taking advantage of a restart with four laps remaining to pass primary leader Luke Hall and post his first win of the season at Limaland. It also qualifies Schroeder for a spot in the coveted King of the Quarter Mile event during the Aug. 26 season championship night. Hall used his outside front row starting position to secure the race lead through a series of early restarts. The handful of cautions saw veteran Jared Horstman and leading 305 contender Stuart Brubaker get knocked out of the 25-lap feature just three laps into the event. Hall ran the high side cushion of the 1/4-mile oval and was unchallenged through the first 21 circuits. His #34 machine flawlessly sliced through lapped traffic from around the 10th thru 21st lap although fellow front row starter Mike Miller, Schroeder, 3-time Tulsa 1 22 .043 17 2011 winner Kyle Sauder and ——— current NRA point’s leader Saturday’s Results Randy Hannagan were all in Connecticut 82, Washington 75 hot pursuit.

in a season and moved the Lynx one step closer to their first playoff appearance in seven years. Any combination of four Lynx wins or Los Angeles losses will put Minnesota in the playoffs. Sky 85, Silver Stars 73 SAN ANTONIO — Sylvia Fowles scored 28 points, hitting 12 out of 16 shots from the field, and added 17 rebounds to lead Chicago. Tamera Young scored 15 points and Michelle Snow added 11 as Chicago (11-14) won for only the second time in its last six games. Jia Perkins scored 18 points, Sophia Young had 16 and Becky Hammon added 14 for the Silver Stars (13-10), who have lost five of their last seven. Chicago led by as many as 25 points in the fourth quarter before San Antonio cut the lead to eight points down the stretch.

The Associated Press TENNIS TORONTO — Eight weeks into her comeback, Serena Williams not only believes she can be as good as she once was. She can be better. The 29-year-old American star made a pretty good point by capturing the Rogers Cup in commanding fashion Sunday, dispatching 10th-seed Samantha Stosur of Australia 6-4, 6-2 for her first Canadian crown since 2001. The victory was just the latest step in a remarkable comeback from injury and illness that has seen her win two of the four tournaments she’s played since being sidelined for 49 weeks. MONTREAL — Top-ranked Novak Djokovic won the Rogers Cup for his ninth tournament victory of the year, beating Mardy Fish 6-2, 3-6, 6-4. The 24-year-old Serb, the Australian Open and Wimbledon champion, is 29-0

this year on hard courts and 53-1 overall. He also won the Rogers Cup in 2007. The sixth-seeded Fish was the only player to win a set a set against Djokovic this week. Fish has lost all seven career meetings with Djokovic but gave the top seed a battle with his awkward mix of baseline and attacking play. COLLEGE FOOTBALL The Southeastern Conference is staying just as it is — for now. However, the game of major college conference realignment appears far from finished. University of Florida President Bernie Machen, the chairman of the Southeastern Conference’s presidents and chancellors committee, said the group met Sunday and “reaffirmed our satisfaction with the present 12 institutional alignment.” Machen said no action was taken regarding Texas A&M or any other schools. He didn’t,

SPORTS BRIEFS

however, close the door on change. “We recognize, however, that future conditions may make it advantageous to expand the number of institutions in the league,” Machen added in a statement. “We discussed criteria and process associated with expansion.” The Aggies reportedly are looking to leave the Big 12. The Texas A&M System board of regents is to meet today; among the items on the agenda is conference alignment. DIVING LOS ANGELES — Nick McCrory was having fun plunging 33 feet off the tower. Things weren’t going nearly as well for Olympian David Boudia, so he amused himself on Twitter. McCrory led all the way in winning the 10-meter title at the U.S. national diving championships Sunday, with Boudia failing to shake what he tweeted was his “silver medal hang-

over.” McCrory earned two 10s for his third dive and totaled 497.35 points in the 6-dive final at UCLA. Boudia had 469.90. Ben Grado was third at 431.05. In men’s 3-meter synchro, Troy Dumais and Kristian Ipsen easily won the title at 459.00. They were fourth at worlds. SOCCER MADRID — Cesc Fabregas is finally returning to boyhood club Barcelona. The Spaniard’s long-awaited transfer from Arsenal finally materialized Sunday when the two clubs announced they reached a preliminary agreement for the 24-year-old midfielder. The deal will be completed once Fabregas signs a contract and undergoes a medical exam today, the clubs added. Spanish media reports put the price of the transfer at around $57 million.

Paul Konerko added three hits for the White Sox (60-60), who have won 8-of-10 to reach .500. Alexei Ramirez had two hits and scored twice. Chicago improved its abysmal home record to 26-33 and moved within four games of AL Centralleading Detroit. The White Sox won consecutive games in a single series at U.S. Cellular Field for the first time since June 21 and 22 against the Cubs. Danks (5-9) allowed two runs and four hits, struck out six and walked four, improving to 5-1 with a 2.29 ERA in his last nine starts. Jeff Francis (4-13) lasted just 3 2/3 innings for Kansas City, which has lost 6-of-7. Rangers 7, Athletics 6 OAKLAND, Calif. — David Murphy hit a tie-breaking RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning, helping the

Rangers finish off a 3-game series sweep. Mitch Moreland hit a sacrifice fly, Michael Young and Mike Napoli each drew bases-loaded walks against former Ranger Rich Harden and firstplace Texas extended its winning streak in the rivalry to eight games. The Rangers (69-52) also moved a season-best 17 games over .500. Mike Adams (1-1) pitched a 1-2-3 eighth for the victory, then Neftali Feliz finished for his 23rd save in 29 chances. Andrew Bailey (0-3) got the loss. Mariners 5, Red Sox 3 SEATTLE — Charlie Furbush allowed just one run in a career-best seven innings, leading Seattle to the victory. Casper Wells homered and scored two runs for the Mariners, who took 2-of-3 from the AL East leaders. For the first time since late June, the Red Sox failed to win or split a

series. Their lead in the division dwindled to a half-game over the Yankees, who were rained out on Sunday. Furbush (3-4) yielded four hits in just his fifth start of the season. He struck out a career-high six. Kevin Youkilis hit a 2-run homer in the eighth for Boston. Tim Wakefield (6-5) gave up four earned runs and nine hits in eight innings but was denied his 200th career victory for the fourth straight start. Orioles 8, Tigers 5 BALTIMORE — Nick Markakis homered and drove in four runs and Jo-Jo Reyes allowed four hits over six innings to earn his first win with Baltimore. Nolan Reimold and Adam Jones had three hits apiece for the Orioles, who got off to a quick start in their second win in eight games. Baltimore led 3-0 after two innings and pulled away with a 3-run fifth. Markakis also had three hits — a

homer with a man on in the first inning and RBI singles in the fifth and sixth. Reyes (6-9) gave up one run, struck out four and walked two. Jim Johnson got three outs for his second save after Detroit mounted a serious comeback bid from an 8-1 deficit. Ramon Santiago homered for the Tigers; Doug Fister (4-13) yielded eight runs, six earned, and 12 hits over 5 2/3 innings. Blue Jays 5, Angels 4, 10 innings TORONTO — Edwin Encarnacion hit an RBI single in the 10th inning to lift Toronto to the victory. Yunel Escobar walked to begin the 10th against Fernando Rodney (2-5). Mark Teahen struck out and Jose Bautista walked before Hisanori Takahashi came on to retire Adam Lind. Encarnacion followed with a base hit up the alley in left-center, scoring Escobar with the winning run as

During ‘Elvis Week,’ fans remember pivotal year
By ADRIAN SAINZ The Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Elvis Presley fans love an anniversary. Every year, thousands of Elvis devotees flock to Memphis to remember the singer’s death on Aug. 16, 1977. The main event of “Elvis Week” is the solemn candlelight vigil at Graceland, his longtime home, at midnight Tuesday. This year, fans have something else to commemorate. It was 55 years ago — 1956 — when the first two Elvis albums were released, launching an international music career that brought Elvis’ mix of country, rhythm and blues, and gospel to millions of fans around the world. “It’s a documentation of what I think is rock music’s most incredible year,” said Ernst Jorgensen, a music producer and Elvis catalog expert. “Nobody was prepared for Elvis.” To mark Elvis’ breakout year, Jorgensen and his team have assembled a fiveCD box set called “Young Man with the Big Beat.” Jorgensen will be unveiling the RCA/Legacy box set today at Graceland. The collection goes on sale Sept. 27. The set includes not only the five CDs, but also an 80-page book that provides a daily chronology of Elvis’ year though photos, postcards, fan letters, magazine covers and other memorabilia. The set also includes rare photos, posters and a replica concert ticket stub. The first two CDs in the set are packed with music from the debut LP “Elvis Presley” and the follow up “Elvis.” Those seminal albums had some of Elvis’ most wellknown songs: “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Hound Dog,” “Love Me Tender” and more. Those tunes, recorded in New York, Memphis, Nashville, Tenn., and Hollywood, Calif., helped sell 10 million singles and 800,000 LPs in 1956 alone. They also brought Elvis to television on Milton Berle’s show, where he gave a hipswiveling performance that excited his young fans and shocked their parents.

‘Apes’ win again with $27.5M; ‘Help’ does $25.5M
By DAVID GERMAIN The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Rebellious apes have held off Southern maids for a narrow win at the weekend box office. Studio estimates Sunday pegged “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” at $27.5 million, good enough for its secondstraight No. 1 finish. The 20th Century Fox release raised its 10-day domestic total to $104.9 million. The “Planet of the Apes” prequel came in just ahead of “The Help,” a drama about Mississippi maids during the civil-rights movement that debuted at No. 2 with $25.5 million. “The Help,” a DreamWorks release distributed by Disney, has taken in $35.4 million domestically since opening Wednesday. The Warner Bros. horror sequel “Final Destination 5,” the latest in the franchise where death stalks victims who had been fated to die earlier, opened at No. 3 with $18.4 million. The weekend’s other two new wide releases had soft openings. Sony’s action comedy “30 Minutes or Less,” starring Jesse Eisenberg as a pizza deliveryman forced to help rob a bank, was No. 5 with $13 million, just behind Sony’s surprise animated smash “The Smurfs,” which slipped to fourth-place with $13.5 million and lifted its three-week total to $101.5 million. The singers from TV’s “Glee” failed to find a big-screen audience as 20th Century Fox’s “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie” opened outside the top-10, finishing at No. 11 with just $5.7 million. The concert film was shot during the cast’s recent North American tour. “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and “The Help” have exceeded their studios’ early box-office expectations. Both received strong reviews, “Apes” for surprising drama amid dazzling visual effects to create the simians, “The Help” for great performances from Viola Davis, Emma Stone, Octavia Spencer and their co-stars in the adaptation of the best-seller about black maids who go public with stories about working for often racist white employers. “You’ve really got to see it to believe it because of the effects,” Fox distribution executive Chris Aronson said of “Apes.” “The combination of the effects and an emotional story makes for a very satisfying trip to the movies.” The “Apes” prequel added $40.5 million overseas, raising its international total to $75 million and worldwide haul to nearly $180 million.

Female crowds made up 74 percent of the audience for “The Help,” and 60 percent of viewers were older than 35. That’s a sign “The Help” could have a long shelf life at theaters, since women and older audiences tend to get drawn to films through word-of-mouth rather than rushing out over opening weekend the way young crowds do. “The Help” already has far outpaced the $20 million Disney executives hoped for over the first five days, and the film is playing strongly in both urban and middle America markets, said Dave Hollis, the studio’s head of distribution. “The book and the way it kind of rose to the best-seller list was very much this word-of-mouth, viral thing where people say, ‘you’ve got to read this thing I just read,’ and we’re hoping the movie can do the same kind of thing,” Hollis said. “The Smurfs” also has outstripped expectations. The family hit added $60 million overseas to raise its worldwide total to $242 million, and Sony announced a sequel over the past week. “We were ready to make the second one before we even released the first,” said Rory Bruer, head of distribution for Sony. “We felt confident it was going to work, but I don’t think anybody had any idea it was going to work to this level.”

Ind. fair to honor collapse dead before resuming
By TOM LoBIANCO The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Fair was reopening today for the first time since a strong gust of wind caused a deadly stage collapse, but was pausing first to honor and remember the five people killed in the accident. Gov. Mitch Daniels and others were set to attend the memorial Today morning at the state fairgrounds. The fair was to reopen afterward. Wind gusts between 60 and 70 mph toppled the stage where an estimated 12,000 people were waiting to see the band Sugarland on Saturday night. About four dozen people, some critically injured, were taken to hospitals. Four of the victims died at the scene: Alina Bigjohny, 23, of Fort Wayne; Christina Santiago, 29, of Chicago; Tammy Vandam, 42, of Wanatah; and 49-year-old Glenn Goodrich of Indianapolis. Nathan Byrd, a 51-year-old stagehand from Indianapolis who was atop the rigging when it fell, died overnight. Santiago managed programming for the Lesbian Community Care Project at Howard Brown Health Center in Chicago and was named to the Windy City Times’ “30 Under 30” list in 2007. Jamal M. Edwards, the center’s president and CEO, said she was one of the organization’s “brightest stars” and worked to improve the lives of women, especially those who were lesbian, bisexual and transgender. Santiago attended the concert with her partner, Alisha Brennon, who was severely injured, Edwards said. Bigjohny had been recently hired to teach seventh grade in Muncie, The Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne reported. “She was funny, spontaneous. She was just amazing,” said Danielle Stoy, who attended Manchester College with Bigjohny. She said Bigjohny attended the concert with another friend, Jennifer Haskell, who also was critically injured. The fair canceled all activities Sunday as officials began the long process of sorting out what happened and fielded difficult questions about whether the tragedy could have been prevented. Daniels called the accident an “unthinkable tragedy” and said the wind burst was a “fluke” that no one could have foreseen. Dan McCarthy, chief meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Indiana, said the

Autism risks for siblings are higher than thought
CHICAGO — A new study suggests nearly one in five children with an autistic older sibling will develop the disorder too — a rate much higher than previously thought. Researchers followed 664 infants who had at least one older brother or sister with autism. Overall, 132 infants or about 19 percent ended up with an autism diagnosis, too, by their third birthdays. Previous smaller or less diverse studies reported a prevalence of between 3 percent and 14 percent. “We were all a bit surprised and taken aback about how high it is,” said lead author Sally Ozonoff, a psychiatry and behavioral sciences professor with the Mind Institute at the University of California at Davis. The highest rates were in infants who had at least two older siblings with autism — 32 percent of them also developed autism. Also, among boys with autistic siblings — 26 percent developed autism versus 9 percent of girls. Autism is already known to be more common in boys. The study involved 12 U.S. and Canadian sites and was published online Monday in Pediatrics. Earlier studies were more local or involved fewer sites. Ozonoff said parents of autistic children often ask her, “How likely am I to have another child” with autism? She said her study provides a more up-to-date answer. However, Ozonoff noted that 80 percent of siblings studied did not develop autism, and that the prevalence rate was an average. It may be different for each family, depending on other risk factors they may face. Autism has no known cause but experts believe that genetics and external influences are involved. Research is examining whether these could include infections, pollution and other non-inherited problems. Ozonoff noted that siblings often are exposed to similar outside influences, which could partly explain the study results. Infants in the study were enrolled before they showed any signs of autism, such as poor eye contact and little social interaction. The study is an important addition to autism research and “has critical implications for families who are deciding whether they’ll have another child,” said Catherine Lord, director of the Institute for Brain Development at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Lord was not involved in the study. Kathleen Lanese of Kings

Park, N.Y., says having one son with autism didn’t make her think twice about trying to have another child, even though she knew there was a chance the second would be affected, too. “We wanted another child and we were going to take whoever we got,” said Lanese, who was not involved in the study. Still, when her younger son was a baby, she says she “watched him like a hawk” for autism signs. He was diagnosed with autism at 16 months, earlier than her older boy. Ozonoff said the study should prompt families and their children’s doctors to be vigilant with infants whose older siblings have autism. Early diagnosis is important because experts say behavioral treatment has the best chance of working if started early. “Pediatricians need to listen and make a very focused plan for how to monitor those things, rather than taking a wait-and-see attitude” toward children with autistic siblings, Ozonoff said.

Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak back in court for trial
By HAMZA HENDAWI and AYA BATRAWY The Associated Press CAIRO — Former President Hosni Mubarak returned to court today for the second session of his trial on charges of corruption and complicity in killing protesters during the mass uprising that ousted him from power. The ailing, 83-year old Mubarak arrived in a helicopter from a Cairo hospital where he has been held since his first court appearance on Aug. 3 at a police academy that once been named after him. He was then wheeled into the metal defendants’ cage on a bed with his two sons, Gamal and Alaa, by his side. The sons are facing only corruption charges. The trial of Mubarak, who ruled with unquestioned power for 29 years, was one of the main demands of the protesters who forced him out of office on Feb. 11. It came after weeks of protests and street pressure on the country’s military rulers, who took charge after Mubarak stepped down. The start of the trial was a relief for many protesters. But many are still wary that it may come at the expense of other changes the protest movement is pushing for. Many protesters are mistrustful of the ruling generals and wonder if they are really willing to weed out former regime officials or introduce drastic political reforms. The military rulers have tried to reassure the public they are committed to democratic elections before the year is out. But they are also showing signs of impatience with the continued street pressure, particularly from an increasingly disparate political groups. On Sunday, a prominent protest leader and woman activist was charged with insulting the military council and inciting violence against it, in one of the most serious accusation against activists seen as an attempt to stifle criticism. Mubarak’s trial has been closely watched, and reactions to his appearance in court reflect the growing post-revolutionary divisions with Egyptian society. Scores of pro- and antiMubarak supporters rallied outside the fortresslike police academy where the trial is being held, and briefly clashed. Hundreds of his supporters railed against they called “humiliation” of the former leader. But the overwhelming majority of Egyptians, his appearance in the defendants’ cage was a sight few had ever expected to see in a country where Mubarak ruled with absolute authority. Mubarak is charged with complicity in the killing of the nearly 900 protesters who died in the uprising and of corruption in accepting gifts to facilitate a land deal. His former interior minister, once in charge of the

police and other security forces who violently confronted mostly peaceful protesters, is also a defendant in the same case, along with six other senior security officers. They are accused of complicity in killing some of protesters. The security officers didn’t appear in the dock today. The hearing in their case, which had began before Mubarak’s case was joined, was held separately Sunday, and the session adjourned to Sept.5. In the courtroom, Presiding Judge Ahmed Rifaat firmly addressed the lawyers representing families of the protest victims, who bickered over seating arrangements and chances to address the panel of three judges. “The case needs effort, not protests or talking,” Rifaat told the crowd, complaining that he had more than 100 lawyers to listen to. The family lawyers asked to separate the corruption charges and the killing of the protesters so as not to delay either case. Mubarak was still on his hospital bed in the cage. He appeared to close his eyes at times. He said: “Present” when the judge did a roll call. The judge recessed the session briefly, and asked the lawyers to write down their requests, apparently to avoid further bickering. The hearing was then reconvened. Before arriving in the dock, Mubarak’s older son Alaa covered a state TV camera to try to block it from filming his father being taken out of the ambulance to go into the courtroom. Mubarak’s health had been subject of speculation for weeks before his trial, and many suspected he might not even appear in court. In a repeat of the violence that surfaced in the first session of his trial, brief scuffles between his supporters and opponents broke out. When Mubarak’s image appeared on the large screen outside the police academy’s walls, his supporters shouted: “Here is the lion.” The screen was set up so that those outside could watch the court proceedings, which were also televised. Some women cried. One shouted: “I wish Egypt burns for what they did to Mubarak.” Nermine Nabil, a 21-year old, was wearing a T-shirt that read: “I am an Egyptian. I am against the humiliation of the nation’s leader.” She said the anti-Mubarak camp don’t know what freedom means. “When I was a baby, Mubarak was in the desert fighting. Now we are in the desert fighting for him,” she said, referring to the police academy’s location on Cairo’s outskirts. Families of the victims were more somber. They carried pictures of their slain relatives, and put a Mubarak picture on the ground for people to step on.

Legal beef

Sara Lee, Kraft in wiener war
By MICHAEL TARM The Associated Press CHICAGO — The nation’s two largest hot dog makers are taking their legal beefs today to federal court in Chicago, where a judge will determine whether Oscar Mayer or Ball Park franks broke false-advertising laws in their efforts to become top dog. Legal arguments in the long-ranging wiener war between Chicago companies pit Sara Lee Corp, which makes Ball Park franks, against Kraft Foods Inc., which makes Oscar Mayer. The case could clarify how far companies nationwide can go when boasting that their product is better than a competitor’s. Thousands of pages of filings in three years of pretrial litigation by both food-industry giants demonstrate that the stakes are high. Sara Lee fired the first volley in a 2009 lawsuit singling out Oscar Mayer ads that brag its dogs beat out Ball Park franks in a national taste test. Those tests, Sara Lee argued, stacked the deck against Ball Park in part by altering the way the hot dogs were cooked and served. The lawsuit also contends that Oscar Mayer touts its Jumbo Beef Franks as “100 percent pure beef,” arguing that the claim is untrue, cast

Paris Hilton loses cellphones on plane to Manila
MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Paris Hilton is suffering a new bout of cellphone drama. The heiress-turnedTV star reportedly lost two mobile devices on a flight to the Philippines for a visit to promote a hotel resort. Television footage showed Hilton combing through a bag looking upset while she was surrounded by airline staff at

aspersions on Ball Park franks and damaged their sales. Kraft defends the “100 percent pure beef” tag, saying its intent was to state that the only meat used is beef. Some industry hot dogs include a mix of turkey, pork, chicken or other meats. Kraft further argues that the “pure beef” label is justified because surveys show a perception among some consumers that hot dogs contain “mystery meats.” Kraft filed its own lawsuit in 2009, alleging Sara Lee ran false and deceptive ads including a campaign where Ball Parks are heralded as “America’s Best Franks.” The ad further asserts that other hot dogs “aren’t even in the same league.” While implications of the case are serious, even litigants have injected humor into the debate. In a ruling this spring denying a Sara Lee motion for Kraft to disclose its consumer surveys, Judge Morton Denlow noted the issue arose “on opening day of baseball season in Chicago” and that Sara Lee “strikes out” in justifying its motion. And in first announcing the lawsuit, Ball Park brand director Chuck Hemmingway said in a press statement: “Simply put, we believe that these untrue statements are all a bunch of bologna.”
