Poll: Just a third favor Obama health care law
By MARK SHERMAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Just a third of Americans back President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul on which the Supreme Court is about to pass judgment, a new poll finds. But there is overwhelming support among both supporters and opponents for Congress and the president to begin work on a new bill if the high court strikes down the two-year-old law. The overall level of support for the law is relatively unchanged in recent months, with 47 percent opposing it. But an Associated Press-GfK poll shows that only 21 percent of independents approve of the law, a new low in AP-GfK polling. The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the 2010 law in the next week or so. Most of the law’s major changes aimed at extending health insurance to more than 30 million Americans who now lack coverage have yet to take effect, including the requirement that most people have health insurance or pay a penalty. The insurance mandate has been among the least popular aspects of the law. Provisions that have gone Delphos, Ohio into effect include extended coverage for young adults on their parents’ insurance and relief for seniors with high prescription drug costs. But whatever people think of the law, they don’t want a Supreme Court ruling against it to be the last word on health care reform. More than threefourths of Americans want their political leaders to undertake a new effort, rather than leave the health care system alone if the court rules against the law, according to the poll. Large majorities of both opponents and backers of the law share the view that Congress and the president should start anew. The lowest level of support for new health care legislation comes from people who identify themselves as strong supporters of the tea party. Even in that group, though, nearly 60 percent favor work on a new bill. Gary Hess, a Republican from Discovery Bay, Calif., wants the high court to throw out the entire law. But Hess, 77, said he favors the provision requiring insurance companies to cover people regardless of their medical condition. “There needs to be compromise on both sides,” the retired school administrator said.

Piano makes precarious trip
BY NANCY SPENCER nspencer@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Don Edwards had always wanted to learn to play piano. On Wednesday, he found one to suit his liking at the Habitat for Humanity Restore in Lima and brought it home. Well — almost. The piano fell off the back of the truck just east of Delphos on Elida Road. With no way to get it back on the truck, Edwards and two gentlemen from Restore started pushing the piano toward Elida Avenue, hoping they could get it to Edward’s home on East Third Street. Then another tragedy struck; one of the casters on the piano broke off. “I thought it was going

to be easy; we’d just push it to my house,” Edwards said. “When the caster fell off I knew we were going to need some kind of lift or tow motor to get it home.” Enter Kory and Kyle Mullenhour, employees of Buckeye Detailing just up the road from where the piano rested on three casters. The brothers went into action and fired up a tow motor and headed just a block east to pick up the piano and take it to Edwards’ house. Edwards said he didn’t think the piano suffered any structural damage but would have to be tuned — something he had planned on anyway. “Now I can take lessons whenever I want,” he said.

Jury selection to begin for Saudi in US bomb plot
By BETSY BLANEY The Associated Press LUBBOCK, Texas — Jury selection is set to begin today in the trial of a Saudi man accused of gathering bomb components with the intention of targeting sites across the U.S. including former President George W. Bush’s Dallas home. Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 22, a former Texas Tech University chemical engineering student, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, and faces up to life in prison if convicted. Attorneys plan to use an insanity defense, court records show. Federal agents secretly searched Aldawsari’s apartment in Lubbock, Texas, twice in the days leading up to his arrest in February last year. They say they found almost everything needed to build a bomb, including chemicals, beakers, flasks, wiring, a hazmat suit and clocks, which he had bought online in the previous months. He had researched targets — including dams, nuclear plants and Bush’s Dallas home — and how to place bomb material inside dolls and baby carriages, court records show. They also discovered Aldawsari’s journal, handwritten in Arabic, in which he wrote that he had been planning a terror attack in the U.S. for years, even before By LINDSEY TANNER The Associated Press he came to the country on a scholarship, and that it was “time for jihad,” or holy war, court documents show. He bemoaned the plight of Muslims and said he was influenced by Osama bin Laden’s speeches. U.S. District Judge Donald E. Walter, who is assigned to the case, ruled last week that prosecutors can use footage from videos found on Aldawsari’s computer, including one in which Ayman alZawahri, al-Qaida’s current leader, praises as martyrs two unspecified individuals killed by “American Crusaders.” Two instructional videos that he also allowed show how to prepare the explosive picric acid and how to use a cellphone as a remote detonator. The judge excluded a video containing an image of Osama bin Laden and audio believed to be a speech given by the slain al-Qaida leader and another file on that video that has graphic images of war that seem to focus on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, according to court documents. Walter wrote that prosecutors could present it at trial and explain its relevance to him while jurors are out of the courtroom, documents show. Aldawsari’s attorneys said in court documents that the video “rolls everything that is unfairly prejudicial about the other videos into one.” They also said Aldawsari had no contact with any terrorists.

AMA supports requiring obesity education for kids
CHICAGO — The American Medical Association on Wednesday put its weight behind requiring yearly instruction aimed at preventing obesity for public schoolchildren and teens. The nation’s largest physicians group agreed to support legislation that would require classes in causes, consequences and prevention of obesity for first through 12th graders. Doctors will be encouraged to volunteer their time to help with that under the new policy adopted on the final day of the AMA’s annual policymaking meeting. Another new policy adopted Wednesday says the AMA supports the idea of using revenue from taxes on sugarsweetened sodas as one way to help pay for obesity-fighting programs. But the group stopped short of fully endorsing such taxes. Some doctors think soda taxes would disproportionately hurt the poor and disadvantaged. Others said taxes shouldn’t be used to force people to make healthful decisions they should be making on their own. Doctors at the meeting shared sobering statistics and personal stories in urging the AMA to sharpen its focus on obesity prevention. “I can’t tell you the number of 40-pound 1-year-olds I see every day,” Dr. Melissa Garretson, a Stephensville, Texas pediatrician, told the delegates before Wednesday’s vote. She said requiring obesity education “is a great idea.” The measure was drafted

A farm policy that’s better for farmers, fairer to taxpayers
By SHERROD BROWN, US Senator With one in seven Ohio jobs connected to agriculture, it’s obvious just how vital farming is to our state. That’s one of the reasons I’m honored to represent our state’s farmers, ranchers, and rural communities as Ohio’s first Senator on the Agriculture Committee in more than four decades. Over the last year, as part of my “Grown in Ohio” listening tour, I’ve had the opportunity to hear directly from farmers, business leaders, and community officials about how we can reform our agriculture policy so that it’s more responsive to the needs of farmers and rural communities and fairer to taxpayers. That’s why I’m fighting to pass the 2012 farm bill, which reflects locally-identified priorities of Ohio’s rural communities, bolsters Ohio’s number one industry to create jobs, and strengthens our economy while reducing the deficit. Reauthorized only once every five years, the farm bill offers an opportunity to adjust our farm, food, conservation and rural policies. In addition to continuing natural resource conservation and investments in nutrition, this farm bill includes the most significant reforms to farm policy in decades. It eliminates more than 100 duplicative programs and authorizations, and takes steps to crack down on fraud and abuse to make sure only those who are eligible for benefits receive them. And because this deficit-reducing bill saves some $23 billion in taxpayer dollars, this is a bill for all Ohioans. The centerpiece of the bill’s reform and deficit reduction efforts is an overhaul of the farm safety net, modeled on a bill I introduced last year with Republican Senator Thunecalled the Aggregate Risk and Revenue Management Program (ARRM). Our proposal and the 2012 farm bill eliminate the existing network of direct farm support programs in favor of a less expensive, market-oriented safety net that will kick in only when times are tough. With this bill, the era of direct payments – and paying farmers for crops regardless of need or market conditions – is over. The farm bill makes simple commonsense reforms. The bill also limits the amount of farm program payments any individual can receive. While directing $23 billion to deficit reduction, the 2012 farm bill also supports the biobased-products industry and continued investment that can create jobs in Ohio. Companies producing biobased products, which are composed wholly or significantly of biological ingredients, are creating jobs in Ohio’s small towns and rural communities, and generating a link between agriculture and manufacturing. Last September at OSU, I held a roundtable with

ronmentally and socially healthy and resilient” and meet “challenges through integrated solutions rather than through fragmented approaches.” And perhaps more important: Sustainable communities take a long-term perspective, focusing on “both the present and future, well beyond the next budget or election cycle” so that the needs of the current as well as future generations are met with adequate resources. ISC adds that the success of a community’s efforts to be sustainable depends on its members’ commitment and involvement as well as leadership that is inspiring, effective and responsive. Some of the ways ISC has worked to further its goals include helping teach leaders from low income U.S. communities along the Gulf of Mexico how energy efficiency and ecological restoration can revitalize their otherwise struggling economies; developing community sustainability initiatives throughout war-ravaged parts of Kosovo, Serbia and Macedonia; installing green roofs on residences in the Chinese city of Shenzen as a pilot project to show how such “technologies” can yield significant carbon sequestration and other environmental benefits, and many more. Key to any consideration of what makes a community sustainable is the acknowledgement that there is no such thing as perfection. “Sustainability is a process of continuous improvement so communities constantly evolve and make changes to accomplish their goals,” reports Sustainable Communities Online, a web-based information and networking clearinghouse started in the 1990s by a broad coalition of sustainability-oriented organizations and managed by the Washington, DC-based non-profit CONCERN Inc.

Ohio’s biobased leaders to discuss the need for an Ohioled, U.S. biobased industry. Ideas from this roundtable helped establish the “Grow it here, Make it Here” initiative, which has been included in the farm bill and will help create new market opportunities for Ohio farmers and some 130 biobased manufacturers in our state. Similarly, many Ohio farmers explained to me that they see opportunities for growth right in state, selling to Ohioans who want to buy Ohio-grown and Ohio-made goods. These comments contributed to my Local Farms, Foods and Jobs Act, which would forge closer links between Ohio producers and consumers by addressing production, aggregation, marketing, and distribution needs. The bill would also improve consumer access to healthy, fresh food with support for technology and direct sales and many components of my bill are included in the farm bill. Since our nation’s food and agriculture policy affects all Americans every day, it is crucial to ensure that the 2012 farm bill creates jobs, and provides economic relief to those in need. The 2012 farm bill is a bipartisan reform bill that saves taxpayers billions of dollars while maintaining investments in the economy, the environment, and public health. There is no excuse to delay its passage. We must act swiftly to pass the 2012 farm bill.

E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: The term “sustainable communities” gets bantered around quite a bit today. Could you define it for me? — Holly Parker, Mechanicsburg, PA Kaid Benfield, Sustainable Communities program director at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), uses the term “sustainable communities” to describe places “where use of resources and emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants are going down, not up; where the air and waterways are accessible and clean; where land is used efficiently and shared parks and public spaces are plentiful and easily visited; where people of different ages, income levels and cultural backgrounds share equally in environmental, social and cultural benefits; where many needs of daily life can be met within a 20-minute walk and all may be met within a 20-minute transit ride; where industry and economic opportunity emphasize healthy, environmentally sound practices.” In his March 2011 NRDC ‘Switchboard’ blog post entitled “A Trip to Sustainaville,” Benfield lays out his vision for what a model of sustainable communities could look like, with neighborhoods sporting healthy amounts of green space and shared vegetable gardens; mass transit, biking and walking replacing the majority of automobile traffic; and mixed use communities where schools, residences and commercial spaces are near each other and are powered by solar panels, geothermal heat pumps or windmills. According to the Vermont-based Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC), sustainable communities are “economically, envi-

Split parole board rejects mercy for killer
By ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS The Associated Press COLUMBUS — The prosecutor who charged John Eley with a capital crime and a judge who sentenced him to death both want the killer of a Youngstown convenience store owner spared, saying he doesn’t deserve a death sentence. Their unusual support was not enough to sway the Ohio Parole Board, which voted 5-3 Wednesday in a rare split decision to recommend against clemency for Eley. Eley, 63, is scheduled to die July 26 for the 1986 killing of store owner Ihsan Aydah. Gov. John Kasich has the final say on mercy. Eley refused to testify against his alleged conspirator, Melvin Green, in exchange for a deal that would have removed the death penalty. Green, who was acquitted in a separate trial, was considered the mastermind of the crime by investigators. Opposition to Eley’s execution from the prosecutor and the judge, as well as the detective who investigated the crime, don’t outweigh the nature of the crime, according to the five board members who rejected clemency. The supporters’ assertions “do not outweigh the fact that Eley took the gun from Green, entered the store with the intent to rob the victim, knew that the victim had a gun and might try to use it, and then shot him in the head,” the board said. The board also rejected claims by Eley’s lawyers that he is mentally ill and mentally disabled. It’s not unusual for judges or prosecutors to change their mind about individual cases or the death penalty itself, but onthe-record testimony on behalf of a condemned inmate is relatively rare. The three board members who supported Eley’s plea for mercy say he is not the “worst of the worst” killers, and argue that many similar convenience store robbers who committed more serious crimes escaped death sentences. They also said the crime wouldn’t have happened with-

Sentencing for Ohio man in cross burning

COLUMBUS (AP) — A judge was ready today to sentence an Ohio man who pleaded guilty in the case of a cross burned in the yard of a black family. Attorneys for defendant Brandon Rhodes have asked U.S. District Court Judge Gregory Frost to sentence their client to community service instead of prison. A federal complaint alleged the 21-year-old Rhodes and a juvenile co-conspirator burned the cross in the family’s yard in Morrow County in March 2011. The suspects are white. Attorneys said in a court filing earlier this month that Rhodes would be helped more by performing community service in the company of minorities than serving time.

out Green. And they argued that Eley was a victim of a game of bluff by prosecutors as they threatened him with a death sentence to force his testimony against Green. “The prosecutors ‘played a bluff’ all the way to the end, and when Eley did not cooperate, they were stuck with the death penalty conviction,” the three dissenting members said. Former Mahoning County prosecutor Gary Van Brocklin told the board that Green set up the entire robbery. Former Mahoning County judge Peter Economus — now a federal judge — said if defense attorneys had presented more reasons why Eley should have been spared, he wouldn’t have voted in favor of a death sentence. Clemency “should be granted for Mr. Eley in this case,” Economus wrote to both the parole board and Kasich on June 7. “Frankly, I am surprised that his death sentence was not modified by the courts who have reviewed this case over the years.”

Plans indicate the plant would employ about 120 workers by 2017, at an average salary of more than $35,000. The proposal is contingent on tax incentives to be approved by Ohio officials. The privately held company has more than 400 restaurants in 12 states and is known for its small, square-shaped “slider” hamburgers. White Castle spokesman Jamie Richardson said in a statement Wednesday that the company was excited about the potential project, but declined to discuss details yet pending a meeting next week with the Ohio Tax Credit Authority.

Fed message: Economy unlikely to improve this year
By MARTIN CRUTSINGER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The economy we’ve got today is more or less the economy we’ve got for the rest of the year. That’s the message from the Federal Reserve, which has sharply reduced its forecast for U.S. growth. It sees unemployment barely budging in the rest of 2012. The Fed also says the economy is under threat from Europe’s debt crisis and from the prospect of sharp spending cuts and tax increases that will kick in at year’s end unless Congress acts. None of which is comforting for companies, job seekers or President Barack Obama, whose re-election hinges in part on whether the economy improves between now and November. Until recently, many economists were hopeful that the economy would strengthen in the second half of the year. But optimism is fading as hiring and growth have slowed for a third straight spring. To prod businesses and consumers to borrow and spend more, the Fed said at the end of a two-day policy meeting Wednesday that it would extend a program designed to drive down long-term interest rates. It also reiterated plans to keep short-term rates at record lows until at least late 2014. And it said it’s ready to do more to jolt the economy if necessary. “If we’re not seeing a sustained improvement in the labor market, that would require additional action,” Bernanke said in his quarterly news conference. Here’s how a weak economy for the rest of the year could affect some categories of Americans: — Job seekers People looking for work aren’t expected to enjoy much better opportunities in the rest of 2012. The Fed thinks the unemployment rate will fall no lower than 8 percent by year’s end. It’s now 8.2 percent. American employers have become wary of hiring. They added just 69,000 jobs in May. Since averaging a healthy 252,000 a month from December through February, job growth has slowed to a lackluster 96,000 a month. And Fed officials and other economists don’t think hiring will accelerate in coming months. — Retirees and savers The Fed’s continued plan to keep short-term rates superlow through 2014 isn’t happy news for people who depend on investment income. When the Fed keeps the rates it controls at record lows, rates throughout the economy gen-

IT WAS NEWS THEN

Romney faces Latino group amid immigration debate

Moderately confused

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Mitt Romney is taking an economic-focused message directly to Hispanic leaders, facing a large gathering of the influential voting bloc for the first time since immigration was thrust into the forefront of the presidential contest. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee today is addressing the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. President Barack Obama will speak to the same group Friday. Romney has struggled in recent days to clarify his immigration policy as he pivots from the harsh rhetoric that defined the monthslong GOP primary to a general election audience in which Latinos will play a critical role. The stakes are high not only for states with larger Hispanic populations such as Florida, Nevada and Colorado, but for a growing number of other battlegrounds — Ohio, North Carolina and Virginia, among them — where even a modest shift among Latino voters could be significant. At least 1 in 6 Americans is of Hispanic descent, according to the Census Bureau. “We’re talking about a significant share of the American electorate that could well decide this election,” said Arturo Vargas, executive director of the Latino association. “It’s only now that both candidates are turning their attention to the Latino vote.” Romney’s speech comes as the Supreme Court prepares to render judgment on a get-tough Arizona law and after Obama announced plans to ease deportation rules for some children of illegal immigrants. Obama is riding a wave of Latino enthusiasm over his decision to allow hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants to stay in the country and work. Under the administration plan, illegal immigrants can avoid deportation if they can prove they were brought to the United States before they turned 16 and are younger than 30, have been in the country for at least five continuous years, have no criminal history, and graduated from a U.S. high school or earned a GED or served in the military. The new policy could help anywhere from 800,000 young immigrants, the administration’s estimate, to 1.4 million, the Pew Hispanic Center’s estimate. Romney has refused to say whether he would reverse the policy if elected, but he has seized on the temporary status of Obama’s plan as his prime criticism. The Republican has also highlighted what he calls the president’s “broken promises” to deliver comprehensive immigration reform during his first term. “These people deserve to understand what their status will be long term, not just 4 1/2 months,” Romney said on Fox News Radio this week. “And that’s why I think it’s important for me and for Congress to come together to put together a plan that secures the border, that insists that we have an employment verification system and that deals with the children of those who have come here illegally on a long-term basis, not a stopgap measure.”

GOP open to talks before contempt vote
By LARRY MARGASAK The Associated Press WASHINGTON — House Republican officials say they’re willing to negotiate an end to a potential constitutional confrontation in a document dispute, but only if the Obama administration turns over more emails and memos related to the flawed “Fast and Furious” gun-tracking operation. The dispute got a little nastier Wednesday. A House committee voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt, the Obama administration invoked a legal stance that could prevent turning over the documents and the confrontation was elevated to the White House and the top House GOP leadership. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said the House would vote next week on accepting the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s contempt of Congress vote. Committee officials who would conduct any negotiations in the coming days for Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said they’re looking for at least some additional documents on Fast and By JIM KUHNHENN and JENNIFER AGIESTA The Associated Press Furious — plus some “signs of good faith.” The latter could include substantive responses to future committee requests for documents, reforming the approval process for wiretap applications, acknowledging mistakes in misleading Congress about Fast and Furious, taking whistle-blowers seriously and producing a log of documents to be turned over, according to the officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the issue by name. The administration, for its part, would have to abandon the president’s assertion of executive privilege — a legal position that attempts to protect internal executive branch documents from disclosure. If the administration maintains that stance, it could lead to court fights that could take years to resolve. The last Cabinet member to be cited by a congressional committee for contempt was Attorney General Janet Reno in President Bill Clinton’s administration. That was never brought to a follow-up vote in the full House. Technically, if the full House approves the Holder contempt citation, there could be a federal criminal case against him, but history ties, even some voters who say they support Romney believe the president will still be reelected. Of all adults polled, 56 percent believe Obama will win a second term. With his Republican nomination now ensured, Romney has succeeded in unifying the party behind him and in maintaining a singular focus on making the election a referendum on Obama’s handling of the economy. The poll is not good news for the president, and it reflects fluctuations in the economy, which has shown both strength and weakness since it began to recover from the recent recession. The new survey illustrates how an ideologically divided country and a stumbling recovery have driven the two men into a tight match. About half — 49 percent — approve of how Obama is handling his job as president, dropping him below the 50 percent mark he was above in May. Disapproval of Obama is highest — 55 percent — for his handling of the economy. Still, registered voters are split virtually evenly on whether Romney or Obama would do a better job improving it. “I’m not going to vote for Obama,” said Raymond Back, a 60-year-old manufacturing plant manager from North

erally stay low, too. That’s why money market funds are paying rates barely above zero — well below inflation. Anyone willing to lend money to the U.S. government over the next 10 years stands to receive about 1.6 percent interest. That’s just about what the consumer inflation rate has been for the past 12 months. In exchange for buying long-term U.S. Treasurys, these investors will manage merely to run in place. — President Barack Obama Obama’s re-election bid is getting no help from the economy — the core issue in the presidential campaign. The president’s political team has been hoping the unemployment rate would drop by Election Day well below the roughly 8 percent level where the Fed thinks it will be at year’s end. With job growth slumping, the president must make the tough case that it would improve in a second Obama term. Still, unemployment might not be quite the threat to Obama that it appears. Unemployment rates in seven of the 10 battleground states that will likely determine the election are lower than the national average. That trend could blunt Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s effort to capitalize on weak job growth to defeat Obama.

Poll: Obama, Romney even amid economic worries
WASHINGTON — Fewer Americans believe the economy is getting better and a majority disapproves of how President Barack Obama is handling it, according to Associated Press-GfK poll. Republican challenger Mitt Romney has exploited those concerns and moved into a virtually even position with the president. Three months of declining job creation have left the public increasingly glum, with only 3 out of 10 adults saying the country is headed in the right direction. Five months before the election, the economy remains Obama’s top liability. Obama has lost the narrow lead he held just a month ago among registered voters. In the new poll, 47 percent say they will vote for the president and 44 percent for Romney, a difference that is not statistically significant. The poll also shows that Romney has recovered well from a bruising Republican primary, with more of his supporters saying they are certain to vote for him now. Still, in a measure of Romney’s own vulnerabiliOlmsted, Ohio, one of the most competitive states in this election. “It’s just the wrong thing to go. I don’t know what Romney is going to do, but this isn’t the right way.” Obama’s overall 49 percent approval rating is not unlike the approval ratings George W. Bush faced in June 2004 during his re-election campaign, when he and Democratic challenger, John Kerry, were locked in a dead heat. The polling numbers come as no surprise to either camp. Both Romney and Obama advisers have anticipated a close contest that will be driven largely by economic conditions. The Obama camp is busy trying to define Romney, hoping it is reaching more independents like Doss Comer, 58, of Jacksonville, N.C., who said he would vote for Obama again, despite the lagging economy. “I think we are on the wrong track,” he said. “We’re not getting anywhere. We’re not growing. The unemployment rate just spiked up again.” But, he added: “I don’t trust Romney because of what he’s doing. He’s telling his business experience, that he was an investor in business. ... I don’t think he has the right background any more than Obama.”

strongly suggests the matter won’t get that far. Democrats contended that the 23-17 party-line contempt vote Wednesday was just political theater. The committee’s top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, called the vote “an extreme, virtually unprecedented action based on election-year politics rather than fact.” Democrats noted that during the committee’s 1 1/2-year-long investigation, the Justice Department has turned over 7,600 documents about the conduct of the Fast and Furious operation. While Boehner and Cantor would make the final decision on postponing a vote, aides to the speaker and Issa said the chairman and his staff would conduct any upcoming negotiations — as they have been doing throughout the year. The Issa aides believe that a few hundred pages of documents may satisfy them, providing that those records tell the story of how the Justice Department came to understand that it gave Congress false information on Feb. 4, 2011. The department said then that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives made every effort to interdict weapons moving from Arizona to Mexico.

I have always loved Tina Fey. I loved her on SNL’s Weekend Update, and I love her even more now that I’ve read her book, Bossypants. Fey is smart and hilarious, and there are several laughout-loud moments within the pages of this memoir. It’s also a quick read, something you can get through in one sitting if you want to. Fey’s book begins with her childhood, as she spills funny anecdotes about her family and growing up. She doesn’t spend a lot of time here, though, as the majority of the book focuses on her career and how she became, well, Tina Fey. She recounts several of the miserable jobs she was forced to endure along the way to her climb to the top, including some she enjoyed, such as being in the cast of Second City doing improv comedy. That part’s pretty interesting, too, as Fey reveals some of the trade secrets those in the business know when it comes to doing improv. She eventually lands a job at SNL as a writer, and we get her take on working for Lorne Michaels and with some of the funniest comedians in the world. Much of Fey’s focus lies on the double standard in the business and how women are treated differently than men. It was a breakthrough moment for her to appear on SNL’s Weekend Update, a gig that proved to work out very well.

Fey provides an intriguing account of what her feelings were on being asked to do those infamous and wonderful Sarah Palin impersonations. She did not want to do it at first, and she really agonized over this. It all worked out okay, but she received tons of feedback, in the form of e-mails especially, from outraged individuals who questioned her motivation and political affiliations upon doing the impersonation of the famous conservative. Besides all the behindthe-scenes information readers are privy to when reading Fey’s book, she also very much “keeps it real,” divulging that just because she is famous doesn’t mean she doesn’t have mommy guilt or real feelings of insecurity and inadequacy like the rest of us. There are long nights of being up all her night with her baby, met with more long nights being up all night writing for 30 Rock. She, too, struggles with juggling parental responsibilities and a professional career. I found that refreshing. I recommend this book for some light, fun reading. Take it outside one sunny afternoon with some iced tea, and laugh it up.

I have seen JIM METCALFE some of the camps and summer workouts of the area soccer teams lately and have seen some of jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com the cross country runners sweating their buns off. You also have the quickly-finishing Little League and minor league baseball teams toiling away. Definitely not easy with the way the temperatures have been the last few weeks. It’s that time of year, though. The summer seasons are quickly wrapping up and the fall seasons are not that far away; it seems they get here sooner as the years fly by. I was talking with someone just last night about the fall soccer teams at The Annex and he was concerned that the numbers are way, way down. That is a concern to me, too, as well as the NFL, the NBA and a myriad of other entities. I do not know what the numbers are going to be for midget football, either. All I know is that with a growing problem — no pun intended — of obesity in our nation (one that I have struggled with for many moons), this is not a good sign. I encourage parents and children of eligible ages to take advantage of these opportunities coming — we didn’t have soccer when I was young — and play. Nate Ankerman told me that the Delphos Soccer Association is still taking applications for the fall on-line the next two weeks; you can access a form on the web site. I also know that the Delphos Midget Football Association will be announcing its try-outs within the next couple of weeks for the 2012 season. You won’t regret it. I remember Orlando Woolridge, the 6-9 former Notre Dame and NBA star. I was perusing through some internet sites to find something interesting to write about this week, perhaps something I had missed. I came upon the announcement of his death last week at the age of 52. After he retired from the NBA and professional basketball (his last two years were in Italy) in 1996 — playing since 1981 — he fell out of the limelight, as many of them do. He had a couple of run-ins with the law: a suspension for substance abuse while playing for New Jersey during the 1987-88 season and last February being charged for theft. I don’t presume to know if he was guilty or not of this last one but apparently, he allegedly did so to try and make ends meet. We remember him as fit, healthy, athletic and strong during his days in the pros, playing for teams such as Chicago, New Jersey, Los Angeles Lakers and Denver. I did not know this but he was a cousin of Willis Reed, another hero of days gone by in the NBA, so his basketball came naturally. He always seemed to be having fun out there on the court and off — that is one thing I also remember about him. One friend likened him to Chris Rock. According to reports, his former coach at ND, Digger Phelps, loved him to death. He has five children and four of them have been pretty successful in the athletic realm. I imagine to see him at the end: having suffered a pair of heart attacks in the past year, with a heart too weak for a transplant, unable to find work in The League, with a resultant depression that one easily can expect having that on your plate. Perhaps this is another story about what happens after the lights get turned off and you just don’t know what to do. He don’t have a lot growing up and then he made it big thanks to basketball, playing 13 years in the NBA. You have your friends and family but you also get the “friends” and that is what is the downfall of far too many of these guys and gals. He could never find something to take its place. Rest in peace.

Get out and play!

The game quickly turned sloppy and two unearned runs proved to be the difference as Van Wert came away with a 7-5 win. Van Wert struck first in the top of the first inning when shortstop Nathan Stoller singled and centerfielder Brant Henry followed suit, plating Stoller to put the Cougars on the board early. Lincolnview countered in the home half of the first when shortstop Nick Leeth singled and came around to score on a monster home run off the bat of centerfielder Tyler Lovett, giving the Lancers a 2-1 lead after one. Van Wert regained the lead with single runs in the second and third innings. Leftfielder Thad Carter reached on a fielder’s choice with two outs in the second and scored on an RBI single by pitcher Tyler Williams. First baseman Andrew Todd walked with two out in the third inning and scored on a Lancer error that gave the Cougars a temporary 3-2 lead. The Lancers fought back in the bottom of the third. Pitcher Kyle Williams opened the frame with a single before stealing second and third base. Leeth and Lovett then walked to load the bases with one out before first baseman Matt Oechsle hit into a fielder’s choice. An errant throw to the catcher, however, allowed Williams and Leeth to score, while Oechsle took second base. Lovett came home when rightfielder Eli Farmer successfully laid down a safety-squeeze bunt. The 3-run rally gave Lincolnview a 5-3 lead but their offense stalled from there. Van Wert tied the game up in the fourth inning with a pair of runs. Carter and catcher Ryan Stoller each singled to open the stanza before Henry plated them both with an 2-RBI single. Henry was gunned down trying to stretch the hit into a double but not before both runs crossed to tie the game. Relief pitcher Mason Krugh entered on the mound for Van Wert in the Lancer fourth and hurled a shutout inning. In fact, Krugh held the Lincolnview bats scoreless through the remainder of the game. The Cougars took the lead in the top of the sixth inning. Nathan Stoller reached on a 2-out single and scored when Henry reached on a Lancer throwing error. The run put Van Wert ahead 6-5. The visitors added an insurance run in the top of the seventh when second baseman Cody Keirns doubled and scored on a single by Ryan Stoller. Leeth singled and pinch-

hitter Derek Friesner walked to open the home seventh but Krugh forced a fly out and a pair of strikeouts to earn the win. In total, Krugh went four scoreless innings walking two and striking out five. Farmer took the loss in relief for the Lancers. He went two innings, allowing two runs - one earned - on three hits. He struck out two and walked one. Henry led the Van Wert offensive attack: 2-4 with three RBIs. Carter and Nathan Stoller each scored a pair of runs and Tyler Williams added an RBI. Lovett led the Lancers at the plate: 2-3 with a home run, double, two RBIs and two runs scored. Leeth went 2-3 with a pair of runs scored. Both teams will return to action today as Lincolnview travels to Paulding, and Van Wert makes the trip to Wapak.

James, Heat on brink of a title
By BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press MIAMI — The only thing that can stop LeBron James’ championship coronation is another Thunder comeback. LeBron is on LeBrink, a victory from winning his first NBA title. Appearing relaxed Wednesday, he said he has recovered well from the cramping issues that knocked him out of Game 4. He apologized for his performance in last year’s NBA Finals and what he called his immaturity toward fans and media afterward. He appears completely different now, more comfortable on and off the court and seeming to have figured out everything it takes to become a champion. He’s almost there but won’t think about it until his Miami Heat have picked up one more victory. “As crazy as it sounds, I haven’t got caught up in it,” James said. “I won’t get caught up in it because I’m not going to let, you know — the human nature is to automatically think about after we win it, what are we going to do. I’m not there. I won’t get there until those zeros hit and I see that we won. “I’m the leader of this team and I’m not comfortable right now. I’m comfortable in my game but I’m not going to be comfortable until we seal this thing.” The Heat have three cracks at it, starting with Game 5 today on their home floor. No team has overcome a 3-1 deficit in the finals but the Thunder already wiped out one big hole just one round ago in the Western Conference finals. “I’ve been down 0-2 against San Antonio and everybody said it was over then and we won,” Kevin Durant said. “But it’s over with. That’s old. It’s a new series. We’ve got to be ready to come out here and try to get this Game 5 tomorrow. We’ll see what happens. We’re not going to give up.” The series was hyped as a James-Durant matchup, the league’s MVP against its runner-up and scoring champion, the winner earning the right to be called best player in the game. They are fairly even in the box score but James is far ahead in the only place that matters to them: the scoreboard. And somewhat surprisingly, he’s gotten more help from supporting players, from Shane Battier’s 17 points in Game 2 to Mario Chalmers’ 25 points in Game 4, including a huge basket after James was forced from the game for good. Meanwhile, Durant has watched Sixth Man of the Year James Harden miss 16 of his 20 shots in Miami. James couldn’t win it in either of his first two finals appearances: his Cleveland Cavaliers getting swept by the Spurs in 2007 and the Heat losing to Dallas in six games last year. James joined the Heat in 2010 after Miami convinced him that he would have enough help to win a championship — more specifically, that he wouldn’t have to carry the load by himself, like he did so many times in Cleveland over his first seven seasons. The Heat were keeping Dwyane Wade, adding Chris Bosh and filling out the roster with a mix that would be best described as unconventional. If that axiom — more options are better — needed proof, Game 4 provided it. James could not finish the game, though he returned after the first wave of cramps hit and delivered a tie-breaking 3-pointer. With James watching the final minute, Wade and Chalmers helped close out the Thunder, Miami winning 104-98 to move one win from the franchise’s second championship. Oklahoma City’s losses in

The Associated Press INTERLEAGUE NEW YORK — Jason Heyward hit two of a record nine homers at the new Yankee Stadium and the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Yankees 10-5 in the sweltering heat Wednesday. Freddie Freeman, Martin Prado, Heyward and David Ross all connected off Phil Hughes (7-6) to build a 6-1 lead on a sticky, 94-degree afternoon. Michael Bourn stole what might’ve been another home run from Jayson Nix after missing an earlier opportunity for a try at a leaping grab. Alex Rodriguez hit his 640th career homer and Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter and Eric Chavez all hit long balls against Tommy Hanson (8-4). The Yankees got within a run at 6-5 on Curtis Granderson’s RBI single in the seventh but Rodriguez ended the inning with a double-play grounder. In the eighth, Freeman hit an RBI single and Heyward a 2-run shot off Boone Logan to help Atlanta pull away for its third win in 10 games and second straight against New York. BREWERS 8, BLUE JAYS 3 MILWAUKEE — Yovani Gallardo pitched into the seventh inning and Ryan Braun hit one of Milwaukee’s four homers in a win over Toronto. Gallardo (6-5) went 6 2/3 innings, giving up three runs and seven hits with two walks and seven strikeouts. Emergency starter Joel Carreno (0-2) gave up a pair of 2-run homers to Martin Maldonado and Carlos Gomez and a solo shot to Corey Hart in a 5-run second. Carreno gave up five runs on five hits in three innings. ROYALS 2, ASTROS 1 HOUSTON — Bruce Chen pitched into the sixth inning on three days’ rest and Brayan Pena drove in a run to help Kansas City beat Houston. Alex Gordon tripled and scored for the Royals. Chen (6-6) struck out six in 5 2/3 innings and was charged with one run and five hits. Jonathan Broxton earned his 18th save in 21 chances.

Arizona roughed up Jason Vargas (7-7) early in the game and batted around in the fifth inning on its way to 16 hits. Mariners scored five runs against Trevor Cahill (6-5) in the third inning. TWINS 2, PIRATES 1 PITTSBURGH — Josh Willingham hit a go-ahead homer in the eighth inning for Minnesota. Willingham hit a fastball from Jason Grilli (1-2) over the wall in left for his 14th homer, breaking a tie as the Twins won for just the second time in their last seven games. Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his first save in place of injured closer Matt Capps. Jared Burton (1-0) picked up the win in relief of starter Francisco Liriano, who pitched arguably his best game of the season, giving up one run and four hits in 6 2/3 innings. The left-hander struck out six and walked two. Pittsburgh’s Erik Bedard overcame a shaky start to surrender one run over six innings. RANGERS 4, PADRES 2 SAN DIEGO — Yu Darvish allowed five hits over eight innings and got his first major-league hit to help Texas to its sixth straight win. Darvish (9-4), who struck out eight and walked three, leads all rookies with nine victories. Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his 15th save in 16 chances. Yorvit Torrealba drew a basesloaded walk with two outs in the sixth to bring in Josh Hamilton with the go-ahead run. The Rangers swept the 3-game series. Padres starter Anthony Bass left with inflammation in his right shoulder after allowing one run and three hits in five innings. INDIANS 8, REDS 1 CLEVELAND — Justin Masterson pitched a 3-hitter for his first complete game this season — the fourth of his career — and AL Central-leading Cleveland finished a 3-game sweep of Cincinnati. Masterson (4-6) took a shutout into the eighth before the Reds ended the right-hander’s streak of consecutive scoreless innings at 18. He did not walk a batter and struck out nine. Cincinnati’s run was unearned. Asdrubal Cabrera hit a 3-run homer and Johnny Damon hit a 2-run shot in the fifth inning off Bronson Arroyo (3-5). Lonnie Chisenhall added three RBIs for Cleveland. CARDINALS 3, TIGERS 1 DETROIT — Jake Westbrook pitched his first complete game in over two years, giving up only an unearned run in the Cardinals’ victory over the Tigers.

MLB CAPSULES

the last three games were by four, six and six points. A play here, a bounce there, this series might look a whole lot different. And that’s why the Western Conference champions are conceding nothing, especially since things seemed pretty bleak when they were behind 2-0 against a San Antonio team that had won 20 in a row. They went on to become the 15th NBA team to come back from that deficit. James was his usual self in practice Wednesday, laughing with teammates while shooting a few free throws, looking at ease. And most important to Miami, he was moving without too much pain. James had to be carried off the court in the fourth quarter of Game 4, unable to walk to the bench. A lot of fluids and rest later, some of the bounce was back in his step on Wednesday. By tonight, James will be ready for the championship stage. And so will his team. What started on Christmas Day in Dallas, watching the Mavericks hoist the banner that will forever commemorate their championship celebration on Miami’s home floor last year, could end as the perfect turnaround story for the Heat.

Westbrook (6-6) allowed five hits, struck out five and walked one. It was his 14th career complete game, his first since May 16, 2010. The Cardinals took the lead in the sixth when Yadier Molina hit into a bases-loaded double play, breaking a 1-all tie. The Cardinals added an eighthinning run on an error by Detroit shortstop Jhonny Peralta. NATIONALS 3, RAYS 2 WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 to win a fastballers’ duel with newbie Chris Archer, Joel Peralta managed to pitch without having his glove inspected and the Nationals snapped a 4-game losing streak with a win over the Rays. Strasburg (9-1) won his sixth consecutive start by allowing five hits and two runs over seven innings. Tyler Clippard picked up his 10th save. Strasburg was just a bit better than Archer (0-1), who faced the minimum over his final five innings after surviving a rough start in his debut. PHILLIES 7, ROCKIES 6 PHILADELPHIA — Todd Helton missed tagging first base to allow the winning run to score on Placido Polanco’s grounder in the ninth inning and the Phillies rallied to beat the Rockies. After Dexter Fowler hit a tie-breaking RBI single off Jonathan Papelbon (1-2) with two outs in the ninth, the Phillies got a clutch, 2-out hit of their own in the bottom half. Rafael Betancourt (1-3) retired the first two batters before Ty Wigginton singled. Pence doubled off the wall in left to score Wigginton. Carlos Ruiz was walked and Shane Victorino hustled out an infield single. Polanco hit a grounder to shortstop Marco Scutaro, whose throw to first was a bit high but Helton caught it and had time to beat a hustling Polanco. He stretched for first and missed. Helton, a multiple Gold Glove Award winner, was charged with his second error of the season. RED SOX 15, MARLINS 5 BOSTON — David Ortiz hit a grand slam for one of the Red Sox’s four homers as they set a season high in runs, beating the Marlins. Mike Aviles, Jarod Saltalamacchia and Will Middlebrooks also homered. With a game-time temperature of 95 degrees, the Red Sox pounded out 16 hits. The Marlins lost despite scoring four runs and nine hits in six innings against Felix Doubront (8-3). Florida’s Ricky Nolasco (6-6) gave up nine runs and nine hits in 3 1/3 innings. METS 4, ORIOLES 3 Dillon Gee extended the Mets’

shutout streak to 29 innings before Baltimore broke through late and New York held off the Orioles for a 3-game sweep. The Mets nearly shut out the Orioles for the third straight day. Wilson Betemit hit a 2-run homer in the eighth and Steve Pearce drew a bases-loaded walk in the ninth before Brian Roberts grounded out to end it. Gee (5-5) had been nicked only by pitcher Brian Matusz’s single — his first big-league hit — until Nick Johnson opened the eighth with an infield single and Betemit followed with a seconddeck home run. Frank Francisco escaped a jam in the ninth for his 17th save in 20 chances, completing the combined 6-hitter. WHITE SOX 7, CUBS 0 CHICAGO — Gavin Floyd pitched 4-hit ball into the seventh, Gordon Beckham homered and the struggling White Sox beat the Cubs to avoid a 3-game sweep. Floyd (5-7) put aside his recent problems. Beckham matched a career-high by driving in four runs and the White Sox got an easy win. Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko each delivered RBI singles as the White Sox grabbed a 2-0 lead in the third. Beckham then chased Randy Wells (1-2) with a run-scoring single in the fourth and broke it open with a 3-run drive off Scott Maine in the sixth, making it 6-0. ATHLETICS 4, DODGERS 1 OAKLAND, Calif. — Tommy Milone pitched a 3-hitter for his first career complete game and Yoenis Cespedes had two hits and an RBI in his return to the Oakland lineup as the Athletics won for the seventh time in eight games. Cespedes scored Oakland’s first run after a double and added an RBI single in the fifth to back another strong start at home by Milone (7-5). Milone walked one, struck out two and retired 22 of the final 24 hitters he faced. Milone threw 112 pitches. He snapped a 4-start winless streak and improved to 5-1 at the Coliseum with a major league-leading 0.99 ERA at home. ANGELS 6, GIANTS 0 LOS ANGELES — Jered Weaver pitched six innings of 2-hit ball in his return from the DL and the Angels beat the Giants, handing Ryan Vogelsong his first loss in almost seven weeks. Alberto Callaspo homered against Vogelsong and teammates Kendrys Morales and Mark Trumbo greeted former Angels prospect Shane Loux with back-to back home runs during a 3-run eighth, helping the Halos take the rubber game of the interleague series.

Kids should support themselves when finished with education

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 2012 It’s extremely likely that you will be developing some social interests in the year ahead that will increase your circle of friends and acquaintances considerably. Although most of these new contacts will be very nice, several will turn out to be very special. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -You could be surprisingly lucky in your financial or material affairs. If you want to cash in, don’t postpone any financial negotiations until another time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Without being self-serving, you should be able to advance your interests by focusing your efforts on endeavors of prominence. Take on something big. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Surprisingly, your intuitive perception could be one of your greatest assets. If you get any strong, persistent hunches, it behooves you to play them whenever you can. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -You’ll be much happier and more comfortable around people whose likes and dislikes parallel yours. If at all possible, stay away from those who think differently from you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Don’t do anything foolish, but if you must take some kind of calculated risk in order to improve your lot in life, it behooves you to do so. Give it a try when you get positive signals. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you’ve been a bit sedentary lately, try to include some form of physical exercise or activity in your life, such as taking a brisk walk with a pal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Something beyond your control that you’ve been wishing would change might undergo a transformation all on its own. Fortunately, you’ll like what transpires. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You shouldn’t have to be told that all agreements or contracts you sign must be able to stand the test of time. Make sure the terms benefit all parties involved, and you’ll come out ahead. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Fortunately, it looks like success is indicated in most of your endeavors or involvements right now. Happily, the wins that could be the most productive pertain to your security and earnings. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Pattern an endeavor in which you’re presently involved on something you did in the past that proved to be successful. If it worked well once before, it’s likely to do so again. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- This could be a good day to tackle several projects that you’re trying to complete. The reason: You’ll find a way to tackle them all at the same time. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -If you’ve been considering getting involved in a new enterprise or project, it might be now or never. Postponing it any further is likely to cause you to completely discard the idea. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

Judge throws out 3 counts against Sandusky
By MARK SCOLFORO and GENARO C. ARMAS The Associated Press BELLEFONTE, Pa. — The judge overseeing Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse trial has thrown out three of the 51 charges in the case, leaving the former Penn State assistant football coach facing 48 counts. Judge John Cleland has dismissed two counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse related to the alleged sexual abuse of an accuser known as Victim 4. Cleland says the charges did not bear out what testimony revealed. In his ruling, released this morning, Cleland says he would have been required to set aside any convictions on those counts, because “the verdict was not supported by the evidence.” He also dismissed a count that he says was the same as another charge. Cleland also ruled against a defense motion to dismiss five counts related to a boy who was allegedly seen with Sandusky by a janitor. The child sex abuse case that shook Penn State University and led to the ouster of beloved football coach Joe Paterno will soon be in the hands of a jury. Closing arguments were set for this morning in the trial of Jerry Sandusky, a longtime Paterno assistant accused of sexually abusing boys he met through a youth charity he founded. Sandusky arrived for court with his wife, Dottie, and didn’t answer questions as he entered the courthouse in Bellefonte, about 10 miles from Penn State’s campus main campus known as Happy Valley. Jurors could start meeting behind closed doors in the afternoon to start weighing Sandusky’s fate. More than a week of often-explicit testimony wrapped up Wednesday after Sandusky’s defense team rested without calling their client to the stand. Once famed for his coaching acumen, Sandusky is charged with 51 criminal counts for the alleged abuse of 10 boys over 15 years in hotels, at his home and in the football team’s showers. Sandusky has maintained his innocence, and his attorneys have tried to weaken the prosecution’s case by discrediting police investigators and suggesting that accusers are hoping to cash in on potential civil lawsuits. Sandusky’s arrest in November sparked an explosive scandal that led to the firing of Paterno and the departure of the university president, and cast a critical eye on the role of college administrators in reporting abuse allegations. The sweeping case also led to renewed focus on child abuse issues. The defense called just four new witnesses Wednesday, including a physician who they used to try to poke holes in the story of a Penn State assistant coach who testified that he saw Sandusky sexually assault a boy in the team

showers more than a decade ago. Defense attorneys finished in three days, resting around lunchtime Wednesday only after a longer-than-expected recess during which Sandusky and his lawyers huddled in private amid rampant speculation in the courtroom that he would take the witness stand. Judge John Cleland started today by issuing jury instructions. The defense then presented its closing remarks before the prosecution took its turn. Then it’s the jury that will determine the schedule depending on how long they take in deliberations. If convicted, the 68-year-old former defensive coordinator could be sent to state prison for the rest of his life. Jurors will have to decide whether the defense was able to create sufficient doubt based on how the investigation was conducted, the reliability and motives of the accusers, and Sandusky’s decades-long reputation as a man who worked tirelessly to help underprivileged children.

Military plane crashes into Jakarta homes; 10 die

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — An Indonesian air force plane slammed into a military housing complex and ignited a huge fireball today while trying to land in Jakarta, killing all seven people aboard as well as two toddlers and their nanny in a home. The pilot, co-pilot and five trainees aboard the Fokker F-27 were on a routine training flight when it crashed into houses in a neighborhood about 1.5 kilometers (nearly a mile) from the runway where it was trying to land, Indonesian military spokesmen said. Raging orange flames jumped several meters into the air and a huge column of black smoke billowed over the eight homes damaged in the crash in eastern Jakarta. More than 10 people were injured. “I could hardly believe my eyes. There was a military plane that crashed and hit the houses!” said Hendra, a resident of the air force complex who goes by only one name. “At once, the situation turned into chaos. All the residents fled in panic. Women and children were screaming hysterically.” He said he helped at least five injured people, mostly with burns, to a nearby air force hospital. Six of the people aboard the plane died instantly, and the co-pilot died later while being treated at a hospital, air force spokesman Rear Adm. Azman Yunus said. The plane broke into two parts as it ripped through the houses and plummeted to the ground. The three people killed on the ground were two children in one of the houses, aged 2 and 6, and a woman who worked as their caretaker, air force spokesman Col. Agus Sasongko Jati said. An official at the air force hospital said more than 10 people, including some children, were being treated for injuries.

Jonny Littman wanted to meet his hero, and the WWE accommodated that wish Monday night before an episode of “Raw” live from New York’s Long Island. But Jonny got a bonus to his wish. On Wednesday morning, Jonny was being interviewed on “Good Morning America” when Sam Champion asked him about his green T-shirt. After Jonny told him it was John Cena, Champion asked if anyone knew the WWE Superstar. The pro wrestler and actor walked out to Jonny’s surprise and presented him with another gift. This time it was tickets for him and his family to attend the 1,000th episode of the WWE show. To put Cena’s 300 granted wishes in perspective, Michael Jordan has granted around 200 and Kobe Bryant is in the 100wish range. “I truly give hats off to Make-A-Wish for keeping statistics,” Cena said Monday before the show. “They had a nice little celebration for me at 200, and I humbly said we should do it at 1,000. “We’re just getting started,” he said enthusiastically. But Cena was clearly touched by the latest one. “I’m just flattered completely that I could be the wish,” he said. Jonny, from Hop Bottom, Pa., has severe congenital malformation and spina bifida and uses a wheelchair. He spoke to his hero for a few minutes and took some pictures with him. He even put on his WWE Championship belt. His mother, Ruth, says his surgeons wore it during his last surgery.

NEW YORK (AP) — The high temperatures that made life hot and miserable throughout the Northeast are expected to return, with readings in the mid- to high-90s. Water-guzzling residents who stayed close to their air conditioners will have to get through Thursday before temperatures are expected to start cooling down. Wednesday, the first official day of summer, saw recordsetting temperatures from New York City to Burlington, Vt. Several relatives of high school graduates were treated for heat exhaustion at an outdoor ceremony in North Bergen, N.J., and taken to a hospital. Ambulances were on standby at the event, which was held outside to accommodate about 5,000 people, said Capt. Gerald Sanzari of the North Bergen Police Department. A similar scene took place in New Britain, Conn., where several people were taken to a hospital after suffering heat-related symptoms while attending the New Britain High School graduation. Captain David Koscuk of the New Britain EMS told the New Britain Herald that 24 people suffered from heat exhaustion or fainting and half of them were taken to area hospitals. According to the National Weather Service, it hit 94 degrees at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, passing the 93-degree mark set in 1995. The 98-degree temperatures at LaGuardia Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport passed records set in 1953, when highs reached 96 at LaGuardia and 97 at Newark. In New England, the mercury hit 97 degrees at Bradley airport in Hartford, Conn., breaking the 1995 record of 96 degrees. Record temperatures were also seen in Burlington, Vt., and Houlton, Maine, which reached 95 degrees and 90 degrees, up from 94 and 89.
