Clark uses tricks of the trade in his job

By JIM METCALFE patient man. You also need that to be a good officer. He paid tribute to his chief, Kyle Fittro. Kyle says I am the only officer he knows that gets thank-you notes from people I have arrested and sent to jail. The people are telling me they needed something to change their lives in a positive way and this is what led them to do it, he explained. I take them at their word and wish them the best of luck. Kyle is such a good chief to work for. He is so knowledgeable about the issue of illegal drugs and addiction: how pervasive the use of them are; what they do to individuals and the community; staying on top of whats changing; and how to try and prevent it. He has his own web site on this and its loaded with information. That is where he is very good. His main focus and ours is to get the dealers off the streets as much as possible. Its all a vicious cycle. Right now, the drug of choice seems to be heroin and that is a tough one to handle, as well as opiates and prescription pain-killers. I dont know if we will ever win the War on Drugs but we want to put a dent into it. He figures his job is made easier because of the environment he lives and works in. It really helps to have a lot of good, caring community members that are great people. We have two good school systems, a lot of really good churches that pitch in and a bunch of community organizations that help us prevent a lot of the crimes. We dont have the problems you see in a big inner city, though we have our share, he continued.

A lot more has changed in the 30-plus years Clark has been on duty, such as the pervasive use of computers. For me, computers arent my best area, especially in cars. We have many newer officers of the younger generations that grew up with computers and they can do it with ease; I dont have it as easy, he said. I have to pull over or slow down and type things in while they just do it so naturally. However, I know we have to do it this way. I also believe that because of all of this, plus with all the rules, regulations, laws and such that we have to follow, the job is more difficult. We have more burdens that we

Mischievous con man McHale, commander of a World War II PT boat manned by misfits and malcontents, was far closer in spirit than shy Marty or savage Fatso to the real Borgnine, who had a cackling laugh and a reputation as a prankster. Despite his big-hearted nature, Borgnine was typecast as a thug from the start, playing bad guys in a series of Westerns including Randolph Scotts The Stranger Wore a Gun, Joan Crawford and Sterling Haydens Johnny Guitar and Gary Coopers Vera Cruz and Victor Mature and Susan Haywards historical saga Demetrius and the Gladiators. Borgnine was playing another nasty character opposite Spencer Tracy in Bad Day at Black Rock when he auditioned for Marty. In a 2004 interview, Borgnine recalled that Chayefsky and Marty director Delbert Mann thought of him as an actor whose lone screen specialty was to kill people. The filmmakers had hoped to cast Rod Steiger, who played the lead in the TV version of Marty, but he had just landed a part Borgnine himself coveted the bad guy Jud Fry in Oklahoma! Mann and Chayefsky flew to the Black Rock location to audition Borgnine, who showed up wearing a cowboy suit, cowboy hat, three-day growth of beard, cowboy boots, the actor recalled. He even began the audition in a Western drawl before shifting to Martys Bronx accent. Borgnine said he knew immediately he had won over Mann and Chayefsky, and Marty charmed audiences who saw for the first time that he could play the teddy bear as well as the beast. No one knew Borgnine could act at all himself included until he came home from World War II after his 10-year Navy stint. He enlisted in 1935, was discharged in 1941, then reenlisted when the war began, serving on a destroyer. As he contemplated what to do after the war, Borgnines mother suggested acting.

No power in parts of Ohio more than a week after storm

COLUMBUS (AP) Power is coming back to areas of central and southwest Ohio more than a week after violent storms hit the state. American Electric PowerOhio says it has about 31,000 who still dont have electricity. Most are in Athens, Guernsey, Licking and Muskingum counties. The utility says it had 660,000 customers affected by the storms at one point. Meanwhile, the American Red Cross says it is closing shelters in Franklin, Muskingum and Fairfield as power returns to those areas. It says shelters will remain open in Perry, Hocking, Licking and Guernsey counties as long as theres a need.


COLUMBUS (AP) Water samples from homes and public water systems will help government officials identify parts of Ohio where arsenic in groundwater could threaten residents health. The Columbus Dispatch reports the U.S. Geological Survey plans to develop a model illustrating which parts of the state have hazardous concentrations of the poisonous metal in groundwater. It will be based on data collected by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and on samples from residents. That effort seeking the publics help in the project begins Tuesday in Licking County, where a workshop will offer residents sample bottles and free lab tests to show whether their well water contains arsenic. Bob Frey of the Ohio Department of Health says arsenic in low levels isnt an acute poison but can increase residents risk of chronic illnesses.

State looking for publics help to test for arsenic

BELLEFONTAINE (AP) Its unlikely that a suspect in two 1986 Ohio slayings can be charged a second time despite new DNA evidence, a prosecutor said. Constitutional issues may prevent charging Terry Lowe again, including the fact that a person cant be tried twice for the same alleged crime, Logan County Prosecutor William Goslee told the Bellefontaine Examiner. A former prosecutor in 1994 dismissed a capital murder case against Lowe, who now lives in Lima. He was accused of fatally stabbing Phyllis Mullett, 37, in her Belle Center home and shooting 64-year-old town Marshal Murray Griffin when he tried to help the woman on the night of July 5, 1986. The prosecutors office this winter received DNA testing results from more than 20 boxes of evidence collected days after the slayings. Testing on a drop of blood found on a sliding glass door at Mulletts home shows a high probability that the blood came from Lowe, authorities said. DNA extracted from inside a knot on a rope used to bind Mulletts legs also pointed to Lowe, according to authorities. Lowe could not be reached for comment. A telephone number was not available. His former attorney, Dennis Day Lager, said he continues to believe that authorities targeted the wrong man. The state didnt have sufficient evidence when Lowe went to trial and the case can-

Ohio man gets more than cash while picking up cans

By CARL E. FEATHER The Ashtabula Star Beacon CONNEAUT, Ohio (AP) John Myers grinned as the cool breeze rolled across Lake Erie and refreshed his face. It was 9 a.m. and hed already walked from his home to the lakefront, pulling a small grocery cart behind him. The cart held his ball cap, a wad of plastic shopping bags and a few smashed aluminum cans that Myers planned to sell to the scrap yard. At this rate, he was making about 10 cents a mile. He shuffled from trash can to trash can at the public dock and marina, hopeful that under each lid would be a cache of cans left behind by soda-guzzling teens or beersucking fishermen. No such luck this morning; John said it looked like the refuse truck had beaten him to it. Undaunted by the small take, Myers headed toward Conneaut Township Park, where the pickings are almost always better. Collecting is also good on the sandbar, where people like to drink and leave behind another mans treasure. And then there are the festivals thats when Myers can really clean up. Myers, 80, calls himself a junker. Hes full time, yeararound. He starts from his home around 7:30 a.m. and spends 8 hours or more a day walking the streets and lakefront of Conneaut in search of working mans silver. Retired from Brown Memorial Hospitals laun-

All-American Soap Box Derby in Ohio displays cars for its 75th running
half of the 140 winning vehicles to date. The winning cars were supposed to be retired, but a lack of storage space meant some were trashed or taken home by their owners. A derby volunteer kept about 40 cars in a trailer, and race alumni provided others. Among them is a replica of a vehicle that raced in the Dayton event that led to the first Soap Box Derby in Akron. Bob Gravetts car, now the derbys official emblem, was constructed of old lumber, tin and wagon wheels. Theres also a replica of the winner from 1973, when a racer put a magnet on the nose of his car in a cheating scandal that led to a closer examination process for racing vehicles. For this years racers, that process starts this week. The 450 competitors will send their cars to Derby Downs in Akron for inspections ahead of the July 21 championship. Up for grabs will be thousands of dollars in scholarships for the top finishers. Mazur has been working to rebuild the popularity of the nonprofit organization, and the museum could be an added draw. It will be closed during most of July for the championship but will open to the public during derby office hours starting in August.

not be reopened, said Day Lager, who is now the public defender in Portage County. Authorities had decided in 2010 to take another look at the case after learning about a cold case unit that received a federal grant to look at unsolved cases. Technology used in the latest DNA testing did not exist at the time of Lowes trial. But constitutional issues that prohibit a person from being tried more than once and protect the right to a speedy trial most likely will prevent the filing of new charges, the newspaper reported. Prosecutors also must consider the availability of witnesses and the strength of the evidence, even with the DNA results. But Goslees staff is studying the prior case file and looking for any precedents in Ohio and other states. He believes local authorities did the best they could with information available at the time. Its a shame two good people were murdered and we cant prove who did it, said Mulletts former husband, Dick Mullett. Former Logan County Sheriffs Deputy Phil Alloway was an investigator on the 1986 case. He said Lowe once babysat Mullets children and disappeared a few days after the slayings. Lowe was later found at a motel with scratches on his arm and knee, the newspaper reported. Investigators never found a murder weapon.

tours in an attempt to help preserve it. The free tours will be selfguided at the Case-Barlow farmhouse in Hudson, located about 30 miles south of Cleveland. Tours will be held during certain hours on the second Sunday of each month, between the spring and fall seasons, the Akron Beacon Journal reported. A nonprofit group and local volunteers have worked toward preserving the 1826 home and grounds for about 16 years. They now hope a more public profile will continue to attract donations that can help pay for needed renovations on the rest of the property. Weve come so far, but there is so much left to do, said Linda Matty, a trustee with the Case-Barlow Bicentennial Farm, the nonprofit group that has focused on sprucing up the property. The grounds include an original outhouse and an 1890 dairy barn still fitted with milking equipment. The farm was founded in 1814 by the Case family, who were known to hide escaped slaves in the years before the Civil War. As a result, the home earned designation as an official Underground Railroad site in 2000. became property of the First Congregational Church of Hudson in 1995. It stayed in the family through five generations, said trustee Barbara Bos. Thats pretty rare. The public stepped in to save the house after the church showed interest in selling it. Voters then passed a levy to turn the bulk of the farmland into a park, and the nonprofit group formed to manage the four acres that included the house and outbuildings. Since then, the group and volunteers have worked

AKRON, Ohio (AP) All-American Soap Box Derby officials are showing off some old cars, champion plaques and other memorabilia ahead of the 75th running of the event in Akron later this month. Theyve dusted off 77 cars and other items that had been stored in a basement and a trailer and are displaying them in an outbuilding at the race site that theyve dubbed the Hall of Fame and Museum, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.

These are brand-new shoes that were given to me, Myers said, proudly showing off his tan sneakers. A fella said to me, What size do you wear? I said 9. He had them in a box and gave them to me, brand new! There was a time Myers used a wheelbarrow to transport his booty to the scrap yard, more than a mile from his house on the east side of town. When a friend saw Myers moil, he arranged to have a wagon built just for the task. Red Fuller had it custom built, Myers said. He was resting in bed and got to thinking thats a lot of work with those wheelbarrows, so Ill make his life a little easier. When the wagon, which is 7 1/2-feet long, is filled with enough scrap to make the trip worth his trouble, Myers pulls it across a bridge to the scrap yard. I made $49.50 one time, and $52 another, with cans and metal together, Myers said proudly. He figures that each can is worth about 2 cents. But for this octogenarian, the walking and socialization offered by his pastime are priceless. I got to keep active. I got arthritis from my head to my toe. If I just laid around, that wouldnt be a good thing to do, he said with a grin.

School gets federal grant after shooting

CHARDON (AP) A school in northeast Ohio where three students died in a shooting last February is getting a grant from the federal government to pay for a security guard and mental health screenings for students and staff. The U.S. Department of Education is giving $56,000 to the Chardon school district to help it recover from the shootings. The money also will go toward paying for substitutes for teachers and staff who need time for counseling. U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan says its vital that students and teachers receive support. A teen charged in the shooting at Chardon High School east of Cleveland has pleaded not guilty and is being held at a youth detention facility. Three students died in the shooting and three others were injured.

The house has since been rented out over the last few years for a variety of activities, including weddings and graduation parties. The public tours will focus on the farmhouse, but it also will allow visitors to see restored second-floor bedrooms of a homestead. Enough has been done now to make it interesting, said trustee Bob Porter.

Tough ID laws may block thousands of 2012 votes

By MIKE BAKER Associated Press When Edward and Mary Weidenbener went to vote in Indianas primary in May, they didnt realize that state law required them to bring government photo IDs such as a drivers license or passport. The husband and wife, both approaching 90 years old, had to use a temporary ballot that would be verified later, even though they knew the people working the polling site that day. Unaware that Indiana law obligated them to follow up with the county election board, the Weidenbeners ultimately had their votes rejected news to them until informed recently by an Associated Press reporter. Edward Weidenbener, a World War II veteran who had voted for Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential contest, said he was surprised by the rules and the consequences. A lot of people dont have a photo ID. Theyll be automatically disenfranchised, he said. As more states put in place strict voter ID rules, an AP review of temporary ballots from Indiana and Georgia, which first adopted the most stringent standards, found that more than 1,200 such votes were tossed during the 2008 general election. During sparsely attended primaries this year in Georgia, Indiana and Tennessee, the states implementing the toughest laws, hundreds more ballots were blocked. The numbers suggest that the legitimate votes rejected by the laws are far more numerous than are the cases of fraud that advocates of the rules say they are trying to prevent. Thousands more votes could be in jeopardy for this November, when more states with larger populations are looking to have similar rules in place. More than two dozen states have some form of ID requirement, and 11 of those passed new rules over the past two years largely at the urging of Republicans who say they want to prevent fraud. Democrats and voting rights groups fear that ID laws could suppress votes among people who may not typically have a drivers license, and disproportionately affect the elderly, poor and minorities. While the number of votes is a small percentage of the overall total, they have the potential to sway a close election. Remember that the 2000 presidential race was decided by a 537-vote

Obama wants to extend tax cuts for middle class

JULIE PACE Associated Press WASHINGTON President Barack Obama is launching a push to extend tax cuts for the middle class, as he seeks to shift the election-year economic debate away from the dismal jobs market and toward the issue of tax fairness. Obama, in an address from the White House today, will call on Congress to pass a one-year extension of tax cuts for people making less than $250,000 a year, said senior campaign aide Robert Gibbs. The presidents appeal to middle-class voters is aimed at drawing a contrast with Republican rival Mitt Romney and congressional Republicans. The House GOP is expected to make its own push this month for an extension of all the Bush-era tax cuts due to expire at the end of the year, including reductions on wealthier income earners. Obama opposes extending the tax cuts for higher income earners. Obamas re-election campaign also plans to use Washingtons tax debate to ramp up its criticism of Romney. The campaign and its Democratic allies have slammed the presumptive GOP nominee for not releasing several years of tax returns and for having some of his money in offshore bank accounts. The strategy is aimed at portraying Romney, whose personal wealth could exceed $250 million, as disconnected from middle-class voters. Gibbs We have to continue to grow our economy. We have to grow it from the middle class out, Gibbs said today in an interview on NBCs Today show. But for millionaires and billionaires, they dont need a tax cut, Gibbs added.

margin in Florida. A Republican leader in Pennsylvania said recently that the states new ID law would allow Romney to win the state over President Barack Obama. Supporters of the laws cite anecdotal cases of fraud as a reason that states need to do more to secure elections, but fraud appears to be rare. As part of its effort to build support for voter ID laws, the Republican National Lawyers Association last year published a report that identified some 400 election fraud prosecutions over a decade across the entire country. Thats not even one per state per year. ID laws would not have prevented many of those cases because they involved votebuying schemes in local elections or people who falsified voter registrations. Election administrators and academics who monitor the issue said in-person fraud is rare because someone would have to impersonate a registered voter and risk arrest. A 2008 Supreme Court case drew detailed briefs from the federal government, 10 states and other groups that identified only nine potential impersonation cases over the span of several years, according to a tally by the Brennan Center at New York University.

Can IRS police both taxes and health care law?

By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press WASHINGTON Can the Internal Revenue Service police President Barack Obamas health care mandate while simultaneously collecting all the taxes for running the federal government? The question is being renewed in the wake of the Supreme Courts decision upholding most of the 2010 Affordable Care Act as a tax issue rather than one of interstate commerce. Nearly 2 1/2 years before taxpayers will have to start providing proof on their tax returns that they have health insurance, key Republicans suspect the agency already is diverting resources from collecting taxes to gear up for becoming the governments health care cop. Knowing the complexity of the health law, theres no question that the IRS is going to struggle with this, said Rep. Charles Boustany Jr., R-La., chairman of the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee. The IRS wants more resources. Well, we need to start digging down into what are they doing with the resources and personnel. Ways and Means Committee Republicans have accused the IRS of obscuring its cost of putting in place the health care law by absorbing it into other parts of the agencys budget. They cite a June report by the Government Accountability Office that said the IRS has not always accurately identified spending related to the new health care law. The agencys repeated lack of transparency to Congress and its failure to provide accountability to the American taxpayers raises fundamental concerns about implementation authorities vested to the IRS, the top four Republicans on the Ways and Means Committee wrote in a June 27 letter to the IRS commissioner. The committee chairman, Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., has scheduled a hearing on the tax implications of the Supreme Courts ruling for Tuesday. Under the law, the IRS will provide tax breaks and incentives to help pay for health insurance and impose penalties on some people who dont buy coverage and on some businesses that dont offer it to employees. The changes will require new regulations, forms and publications, new computer programs and a big new outreach program to explain it all to taxpayers and tax professionals. Businesses that dont claim an exemption will have to prove they offer health insurance to employees. The health care law includes the largest set of tax law changes in more than 20 years, according to the Treasury inspector general who oversees the IRS. The agency will have to hire thousands of workers to manage it, requiring significant budget increases that already are being targeted by congressional Republicans determined to dismantle the presidents signature initiative.

Words vs. deeds

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: With recent developments, I have been motivated to respond to some of the things that have been ongoing for some time. It is only the recent events that has set me to voice my opinion. On my list is a development from the recent storm that passed through this area. As I returned from work Friday afternoon in the midst of this horrific and unusual storm, I passed by one certain gas station, and as I passed, I glanced at the price of gas as I usually do, noticing it was quite close to the price of the stations in Lima. For a long time, I have noticed the prices here in Delphos have been running about 12-15 cents a gallon more than our neighbors to our east. When the prices here in town reach close to or the same as those in Lima, the very next day, along with other stations in the area, the price will jump 25-30 cents a gallon. It is amazing to me that our prices can lag behind by the 12 to 15 cents/gal., for a period of time, but the increases come to our pumps simultaneously with everyone else in the area. I thought our stations would be more competitive than that. Gouge or not to gouge? This question was answered the Saturday after the storm. One particular station raised its gasoline from the approximate $3.06 a gallon to $3.19 a gallon only to capitalize on the missfortunes of the people of Delphos. An approximate $0.16 a gallon profit to their bottom line when other stations in town and around the area, which were operating, maintained the approximate $3.04 a gallon. The increase by this station was short lived by Saturday evening it was then back down to $3.03 a gallon. Gouge or not to gouge? So much for our stations being competitive! The week before the 4th, the gas prices shot back up to $3.39 (coincident or not) and because I waited until that Friday to finish this letter, we see yet another $0.20 on top of the previous $0.36 increase. I repeat. Gouge or not to gouge? I would like to end this letter to the editor on a good note. As I write this, I am sure some area homes are still without power in the wake of the storm but given the severity of this storm and the recovery that has taken place so far, I would like to recognize all the men and women who worked non-stop giving up their holidays and spending many long hours in this staggering heat to return our electricity a part of our lives we all take for granted. A job well done! Thanks, John Grothouse


CAMDEN South Carolina politics never fails to amuse and bemuse. A recent ethics imbroglio between Republican Gov. Nikki Haley and GOP activist John Rainey is a case in point. The squabble would be of passing provincial interest if Haley werent a rising star often mentioned on lists of potential vice presidential candidates. And had she not called Rainey, a nationally recognized philanthropist and community bridge-builder, a racist, sexist bigot. Such charges deserve clarification and context. Haley made the remarks during a state House Ethics Committee hearing that was prompted by a complaint Rainey filed alleging that Haley had lobbied illegally while she was a legislator. Haley has been cleared of any wrongdoing and theres no need to re-litigate here, though Rainey promises that the issue is not dead. Meanwhile, her invectives toward Rainey, though perhaps understandable given an exchange between them (about which more anon), are contradicted by his record. Rainey is anything but racist, sexist or bigoted. Haleys feelings apparently had been hurt during her one meeting with Rainey while she was a gubernatorial candidate. She had sought the meeting, doubtless hoping for financial and political support, but Rainey was


Point of View
skeptical. He knew nothing about her at the time, he told me, and couldnt find anyone who did. Everyone he spoke to said the same thing in so many words: I dont know anything about her, but I know shes the partys candidate and I support her. That, Rainey told me, is the kind of thing that makes me want to throw up. Party loyalty over all other considerations is what ails American politics, he said. In questioning Haley at the meeting, Rainey indicated that all cards needed to be on the table, that he didnt want to find out at some point that her family had ties to terrorists. Haley, who is of Sikh Indian descent, clearly took offense. Nevertheless, she wrote a nice note to him, Rainey said, remarking that she never showed any indication of offense during their meeting until he raised questions about her lobbying activities. That was the end of the meeting, Rainey said, but his curiosity was further piqued. He began probing her past and raised questions about what he viewed as ethical transgressions. Rainey doesnt recall

making the specific terrorist remark, but takes the word of others present that he did. Any such comment, he insists, would have been in a jocular, expansive fashion, rather than mean-spirited. Rainey is known to be outspoken and irreverent, but also as a scrapper for fairness and reconciliation. Comments offered in jest or offhandedly nonetheless can be wounding, which Rainey acknowledges and now has experienced. Inarguably, the governors charges, made publicly and aimed at a citizen, albeit a powerful one, are far more damaging than whatever Rainey said during a private meeting. Judge as you may, but consider the following facts before accepting Haleys indictment of Rainey. For no personal gain, Rainey frequently has raised money and organized groups in common cause across party lines. He and wife, Anne, marched in 2000 with 46,000 others to protest the Confederate flag, which then flew atop the South Carolina Capitol dome. He personally hosted several private meetings with NAACP and legislative leaders to find a compromise for the flags removal. He served as executive producer and raised funds to finance Bud Ferillos documentary Corridor of Shame about the dismal condition of public schools along the I-95 corridor through South Carolina. Candidate Barack

Obama visited one of those schools and cited the corridor in campaign speeches. In 1999, Rainey chaired the fundraising committee for the African-American History Monument on Statehouse grounds. In 2002, while chairman of Brookgreen Gardens, he raised funds to erect a World War I doughboy statue in Columbias Memorial Park and sponsored a bust of a 54th Massachusetts Infantry African-American soldier. He received the sixth annual I. DeQuincey Newman Humanitarian Award in 2004, named for the United Methodist minister and first African-American elected to the South Carolina Senate following Reconstruction. Latest to the roster is a sculpture Rainey has commissioned honoring two Camden natives, financier Bernard Baruch and baseball great Larry Doby. Baruch was a philanthropist, statesman and consultant to presidents (Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt). Doby was the first AfricanAmerican in the American League and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998. The sculpture, which will be unveiled next April, is a monument not only to two local heroes, but also to the sort of reconciliation Rainey represents. His record speaks louder than words.

Grove pounds Patriots in ACME sectionals

HAMLER Columbus Grove answered an early challenge by Patrick Henry, then never let up as the Bulldogs hammered the host Patriots 12-2 in the ACME sectional tournament. The win allows the Bulldogs (16-3) to win the South East ACME sectional championship and advance to next weekends ACME district tournament at Archbold. The tournament is scheduled to begin Friday. This was a goal of ours from the start of the season, Columbus Grove ACME coach Mark Roney said. We wanted to win an ACME sectional championship and win a game in the district tournament. After losing two games last year, the kids had a goal in mind and now they have that opportunity. Coming off wins over Leipsic and Ottawa-Glandorf in the losers bracket to reach the championship game, the Patriots had momentum and used that momentum in the top of the first to take an early 2-0 lead. Derek Hoops opened the game with a single to rightcenter and stole second base. After a flyout, Gabe Jones walked before both Hoops and Jones combined for a double steal that put runners at second and third. A walk to Joe Montana loaded the bases before Ryan Tietje singled to right to score a run and give Patrick Henry a 1-0 lead. Anderson Okuleys bouncer to first saw Jones forced at home plate for the second out of the inning. Joe Willford followed with a single to short right that Grove rightfielder Riley Brubaker fielded quickly and fired a strike to home allowing just one run to score. After getting the ball, Bulldog catcher Elisha Jones fired to third base and caught Tietje late in getting back to the bag as Josh Verhoff applied the tag. Columbus Grove didnt wait long to put the pressure back on the Patriots in this double-elimination tournament. Blake Hoffman opened

the bottom of the first with a sharp single to center and stole second before scoring on a double by Brandon Benroth. A balk moved Benroth to third before Trey Roney reached on an error at second base that allowed Benroth to tie the game at 2-2. A single by Brady Shafer kept the Bulldogs going as Verhoff came to the plate. Patrick Henry starter Derek Kulpein was down to Verhoff 2-1 but the scoreboard showed the count being 3-1. After Kulpein threw another ball, Roney started running to third base thinking it was ball four. However, it wasnt and the Bulldogs had runners at first and third before Verhoff actually did walk. However, the Bulldogs couldnt score as a popup to second base, a strikeout and a fly ball to right ended the inning. That was important, coach Roney said of the two runs. We told them before the game they were on a roll and we couldnt let them get an advantage. They did but we came right back and we kept going and I think that affected them some mentally. After Roney faced just three batters in the top of the second, the Bulldogs pushed across a run in the bottom of the inning as David Bogart reached on an error and moved to second on a sacrifice by Hoffman. After a fly ball to center, Roney lined a single to right to give Grove a 3-2 lead. Patrick Henry had two runners on base in the third after a 1-out walk to Jones and Montana reached on an error. After a fly ball to center for the second out, Roney picked off Jones at second to end the inning. The fired-up Bulldogs took control of the game in their half of the third as they scored seven runs and sent 12 batters to the plate in the inning. Patrick Henry made a pitching change to start the inning as they brought in Hoops. Hoops got off to a rocky start on the mound, walking Verhoff, Kody Griffith and Brubaker to start the inning and load the bases. Mason Smith plated a run with a seeing-eye single to left before the first out of the inning was recorded. Hoffman followed with a sharp ground ball to third base. The Patriot third baseman threw home in an effort to get a forceout but it was wild, allowing Griffith to score; Brubaker used his speed to come home all the way from second and left Smith and Hoffman at third and second, respectively. Benroth followed with an RBI single before Roney was intentionally walked to load the bases. A walk to Shafer forced in a run before Verhoff singled in a run. A fielders-choice play put the Bulldogs up 10-2 before the inning ended on a ground ball to third base. Columbus Grove invoked the run-rule with two runs in the bottom of the fourth and Roney made it standup with a

Riepenhoff walked. Ottoville changed pitchers as Horstman took over on the mound. He escaped any further trouble as he got a weak pop-up to first base that Hohlbein grabbed to end the inning. With the lead, Lehman was able to protect it but not without some excitement in the sixth inning. Ottovilles Cory Fischer and Brandon Becker walked to start the inning but Lehman settled in to retire the final six batters he faced as just one ball left the infield. Lehman struck out three in recording the win. Fuka had three singles for the Wildcats. Hohlbein, who picked up the win in a 1-0 win over Miller City on Monday, took the loss as he struck out four Wildcat batters. Four different Ottoville batters had singles in the game. The Big Green end the summer at 8-7. ***

Our defense has played well all summer and we had another great game today throwing out a couple of runners. Benroth and Roney both had a single and double for the Bulldogs and Smith had two singles.

(Friday night)


Miller City edges out Big Green

since 1992 and in first place at the break for the first time since 1997. A.J. Burnett (10-2) pitched effectively into the seventh to win his ninth consecutive decision. Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum (3-10) failed to get out of the fourth inning for the second consecutive start and was charged with six runs and seven hits. Pablo Sandoval hit a 2-run homer for San Francisco. BRAVES 4, PHILLIES 3 PHILADELPHIA Brian McCann homered for the fourth consecutive game and Dan Uggla hit a 2-run shot to lead the Braves to the 3-game series sweep. McCann hit the go-ahead homer in the seventh inning against Raul Valdes (2-2) in the series finale. Jason Pridie homered, doubled and had three RBIs as a last-minute replacement for Shane Victorino. The Phillies did not say why Victorino was scratched after the badly-slumping outfielder was scheduled to hit seventh. Jair Jurrjens (3-2) pitched seven innings to win his second straight start. Craig Kimbrel worked a scoreless ninth for his 25th save.

HOLGATE Miller City scored two runs in the fifth inning and made them stand up in a 2-1 win over Ottoville Friday night in the ACME sectional tournament at Holgate. Friday nights contest, played in 100-degree temperatures, saw Ottoville hurler Brian Hohlbein and Miller City hurler Ross Lehman keep the opponents bats quiet for much of the evening. Ottoville drew first blood as they pushed across a run in the top of the first inning as Lehman struggled with his control early. Big Green leadoff batter Alex Horstman walked to start the contest before Jacob Turnwald was hit by a pitch. A double play groundball to shortstop had the Wildcats one out away from escaping the inning but Hohlbein ruined that with a line drive single to center that scored Horstman. A strikeout ended the Ottoville first inning. Ottoville had runners at third base in the second and third innings but each time Lehman was able to escape further damage. In the third, the Big Green had runners at second and third with one out before Lehman used two ground balls to get out of the jam. Hohlbein also escaped a first-inning jam as Miller Citys Hunter Berner was at third base with two outs. A comebacker ended the inning. Miller City didnt get a runner past first base again until the fifth inning when they put together a 2-out rally. Number 9 batter Jeremy Balbaugh lined a single to center and stole second base. Jack Lammers followed with a single to leftcenter that scored Balbaugh to tie the game at 1-1. Berner walked after a 13-pitch at-bat that saw him foul off several Hohlbein pitches before taking first base. Jared Fuka gave the Wildcats the lead with a sharp single to left before Brent

----Columbus Grove 6, Ottawa-Glandorf 4 HAMLER Columbus Grove scored three times in the sixth inning to defeat OttawaGlandorf 6-4 in the ACME sectional tournament at Patrick Henry High School. The Bulldogs and Titans were involved in a tight game as the score was tied 2-2 after four innings. Grove scored a run in the fifth to go up 3-2 as Blake Hoffman scored as Trey Roney took an extra base in an attempt to get in a rundown to allow Hoffman to score. Columbus Grove pushed across three runs in its half of the sixth as Riley Brubaker and Brandon Benroth had RBI singles and a run scored on a wild pitch. O-G didnt go quietly in the bottom of the seventh as they scored two runs on a Jake Harshbarger RBI double and a Ben Dietering RBI single. The Bulldogs brought in Roney to close out the game and used a strikeout and pickoff of an O-G runner at third to end the game. Roney faked a throw to second and as Grove shortstop Benroth and second baseman Dave Bogart faked a wild throw into center, Roney turned and threw to third to get the O-G runner diving back into third. The Bulldogs took the lead with single runs in the first and third inning and O-G tied the game in the fourth with two runs. Josh Verhoff picked up the win for Grove in relief of starter Brubaker. Roney was credited with a save. Hoffman and Roney both had two hits for the Bulldogs. Ryan Maas took the loss for O-G as he went the distance. Dietering, Maas and Tyler Ellerbrock all had two hits for the Titans. ***

CUBS 7, METS 0 NEW YORK Ryan Dempster extended his scoreless streak to 27 innings in his first start in three weeks and Starlin Castro hit a 3-run homer for the Cubs. Dempster (4-3) was activated from the disabled list, then pitched five innings of 4-hit ball. It was his first outing since June 15. His lengthy string of zeros is the Cubs best for a starter since Ken Holtzman went 27 innings in 1971. Geovany Soto hit a 2-run single in Chicagos 4-run first. Jonathon Niese (7-4) allowed seven runs and nine hits in seven innings for New York. CARDINALS 5, MARLINS 4 ST. LOUIS Rafael Furcal hit a 2-run single off Heath Bell with two out in the ninth inning, capping a 3-run rally and lifting the Cardinals to the victory.

Federer a Grand Slam champion again at Wimbledon

By STEVEN WINE The Associated Press
WIMBLEDON, England Up in the players box on Centre Court, Roger Federers twin daughters squirmed, yawned, made funny faces and then applauded the new Wimbledon champion. The girls turn 3 this month. They were 6 months old the last time Federer won a Grand Slam title. The victory today is a dream come true for me and my family, you know, seeing them there, he said. Its big. At 30, Federer showed the kids what he can do and strengthened his contention hes far from finished. Federer ended a Grand Slam drought and equaled a Wimbledon record by winning the tournament for the seventh time Sunday, beating Andy Murray of Britain, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4. For months Federer had been widely viewed as a champion in decline, eclipsed by Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Now he has won a 17th major title, padding his record, and hes back atop the ATP rankings for the first time since June 2010, matching Pete Sampras record of 286 weeks at No. 1. In less than three weeks, Federer will be back at Wimbledon trying to win his first Olympic singles gold medal. Hell be tough to beat in a setting where he plays his best tennis.

I feel better here for some reason, he said. I dont know why but its very unique and special in many ways. He matched the record of seven Wimbledon titles set in the 1880s by William Renshaw and tied in 2000 by Federers hero, Sampras. And while he ended his own 2 1/2-year Grand Slam dry spell, he extended decades of frustration for the British, who havent had a homegrown mens champion since 1936. Murray, a Scotsman, was the first Brit to make the mens final since 1938. In anticipation of the match, fans camped out overnight in the rain just for a grounds pass so they could watch on a large video screen near the practice courts. The Royal Box audience included British Prime Minister David Cameron, soccer star David Beckman and Prince Williams wife, the former Kate Middleton. Murray tried to give them a good show, taking an early lead and then losing a close second set when he was broken in the final game. The match began in sunshine but rain interrupted play early in the third set and the retractable roof was closed for a singles final for the first time since it was added in 2009. And while Federer is good on grass, it turns out hes especially good indoors on grass. Coming into the match, Federer had won 20 of his 74 titles indoors. With wind eliminated as a factor, he can swing

even more aggressively and hit his pinpoint serves with even more accuracy. Thats what happened. A 26-point, 20-minute game in the third set proved pivotal and provided the matchs most memorable moments. Murray fell to the grass three times during the game but also saved five break points before he was finally broken to give Federer a 4-2 lead. Federer held every service game the rest of the way. With the win, he became the first thirtysomething man to win Wimbledon since Arthur Ashe in 1975 and reclaimed the No. 1 ranking from Djokovic. Federer lost in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in 2010 and 2011, then blew a 2-set lead against Djokovic in the U.S. Open semifinals last year when he squandered two match points. There was speculation that parenthood had cost him his edge and that his best days were behind him. Now, with Federers fortunes on the rebound, mens tennis remains compelling and competitive at the top. For the first time since 2005, the first three major tournaments have been won by three different players. Djokovic won the Australian Open in January. Nadal won a record seventh French Open title last month. And then theres Murray, now 0-4 in Grand Slam finals, with three of those losses to Federer. The only other man in the Open era to lose his first four major finals was

Serena jokes about selling serve at champs dinner LONDON For the low, low price of a million dollars, Serena Williams record-setting serve can be yours. OK, not really, of course. A day after winning her fifth Wimbledon singles title while raising her ace total to 102 for the tournament, Williams joked at the All England Club champions dinner Sunday night that shes bottling that powerful stroke and putting it up for sale. Williams, who also won the womens doubles title with older sister Venus, and Federer made brief remarks to guests while interviewed by Virginia Wade, the 1977 womens winner at the All England Club. Williams hit 17 aces in her 3-set victory over Agnieszka Radwanska in the womens final Saturday. Williams broke her own Wimbledon records with 24 aces in one match and 102 for the two weeks. All England Club Chairman Philip Brook noted at Sunday nights dinner that Williams finished with far more aces than Federer, who hit 71. Wade noted that there is not a lot of time for Federer to rest up before the London Games start July 28. The Olympic tennis competition will be held at the All England Club. Oh, yeah, three weeks. Thats like, I dont know, three years vacation for you guys, Federer joked. Three weeks is plenty. Ill do one week vacation and then Ill prepare.

Ivan Lendl, who happens to be Murrays coach. Lendl went on to win eight Grand Slam titles. Murray believes hell yet make a breakthrough, perhaps even at Wimbledon. Im getting closer, his told the crowd during the trophy ceremony, fighting back tears. He accepted a hug from Federer and a moment later they were both laughing. Federer then told the crowd hell be rooting for Murray in the future.

Cardinals reliever Mitchell Boggs (2-1) struck out Donovan Solano with the bases loaded to end the ninth. The Marlins finished the series without two of their stars. Giancarlo Stanton, the teams lone All-Star, underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Sunday; Hanley Ramirez was taken out after five innings of the series finale with a lacerated right finger. ROCKIES 4, NATIONALS 3 WASHINGTON Jordan Pacheco doubled and scored the tie-breaking run on a ninth-inning wild pitch by Tyler Clippard, giving the Rockies a comeback victory. The NL East-leading Nationals took a 3-1 lead into the eighth but a meltdown by their usually reliable bullpen cost them a chance to hit the All-Star break with their best record since the team moved to Washington in 2005. Colorados rally was fueled by Eric Youngs first homer of the season and a pair of wild pitches. Rex Brothers (4-2) worked the eighth and Rafael Betancourt got his 15th save, striking out pinch-hitter Jesus Flores with two outs and runners at second and third. Ian Desmond homered and Adam LaRoche had two hits and scored a run for the Nationals. Clippard (2-3) got the loss. DIAMONDBACKS 7, DODGERS 1 PHOENIX Trevor Bauer scattered two hits over six scoreless innings, leading Arizona to the victory. Paul Goldschmidt homered, doubled and drove in a career-high four runs for the Diamondbacks. Bauer (1-1) struck out six, walked one and retired the final 12 batters he faced to earn his first major-league victory. Patrick Corbin pitched the final three innings for his first career save. Chris Capuano (9-4) allowed a season-high five runs over five innings for the Dodgers. BREWERS 5, ASTROS 3, 10 INN. HOUSTON Corey Hart drove in the go-ahead run with a single in the 10th inning and Rickie Weeks third hit added an insurance run for Milwaukee. Nyjer Morgan walked to start the 10th and Fernando Rodriguez (1-8) intentionally walked Ryan Braun before a wild pitch moved the pair over. Rodriguez walked Aramis Ramirez to load the bases and Harts full-count grounder put Milwaukee on top. Weeks, who homered in the second, then singled in Braun. Manny Parra (1-3) pitched a perfect ninth for the win and John Axford allowed two hits in a scoreless 10th for his 15th save. REDS 4, PADRES 2 SAN DIEGO All-Star Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick hit consecutive home runs, leading the Reds to the victory. Bruce and Ludwick connected two pitches apart in the fourth inning to give Cincinnati a 3-0 lead. Sam LeCure, Sean Marshall and Aroldis Chapman combined for 3 1/3 innings of hitless relief, with Chapman earning his 11th save. Jason Marquis (1-5) gave up three runs and seven hits in five innings for San Diego. Cameron Maybin made an

outstanding catch in center field to rob Joey Votto of a possible homer. AL CLEVELAND All-Star Chris Perez blew his first save since opening day and the Tampa Bay Rays scored three runs in the ninth inning to beat the Cleveland Indians 7-6 Sunday. Will Rhymes hit a solo homer with one out and Carlos Pena added a RBI triple after Elliot Johnson singled to tie it at 6 off Perez (0-2), who had converted 25 straight saves since giving up a lead April 5. Ben Zobrist then singled home Pena with the go-ahead run before Perez got two strikeouts to end the inning. Fellow All-Star Fernando Rodney worked the bottom half for his 25th save in 26 chances. BLUE JAYS 11, WHITE SOX 9 CHICAGO Colby Rasmus hit one of four Blue Jays homers and had three RBIs to help Toronto end the White Soxs 5-game winning streak. Chicago manager Robin Ventura was ejected in the top of the ninth after charging to the plate to heatedly argue a ball and strike call with home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn. Jason Frasor (1-1), the third of five Blue Jays relievers, was credited with the win and Casey Janssen pitched the final 1 2/3 innings for his 12th save in 13 chances. He gave up two ninth-inning singles before striking out Alejandro De Aza to end it. TIGERS 7, ROYALS 1 DETROIT Delmon Young homered for the fourth consecutive game, Prince Fielder hit a 3-run shot and

Jhonny Peralta homered and drove in three runs in the Tigers win over the Royals to complete a sweep of the 3-game weekend series. The power display backed Max Scherzer (8-5), who allowed a run and five hits over seven innings, walking one and striking out seven. Salvador Perez homered for Kansas City. Royals starter Everett Teaford (1-2) took the loss. He allowed five runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings. He walked a batter and struck out five. ANGELS 6, ORIOLES 0 ANAHEIM, Calif. Brad Mills pitched five innings of 3-hit ball in a spot start for the injured Dan Haren after getting called up from the minors and the Angels got home runs from Albert Pujols, Erick Aybar, Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo in a victory over the Orioles. Mills (1-0) threw 88 pitches on three days rest in his Angels debut with six strikeouts and no walks. LaTroy Hawkins, Kevin Jepsen and Jordan Walden each pitched an inning of relief and first-time All-Star Ernesto Frieri closed out the combined 5-hitter for his 12th save in as many attempts. Rookie Wei-Yin Chen (7-5) lost his fourth straight start after winning his previous three outings. ATHLETICS 2, MARINERS 1, 13 INN. OAKLAND, Calif. Josh Reddick hit a game-ending RBI double in the 13th inning to send the Oakland Athletics into the All-Star break with a .500 record. Jemile Weeks led off the 13th with a single off Oliver Perez (0-2) and then raced around the bases to score on

Reddicks drive to left-center field that gave the As their eighth walk-off win of the season. Jordan Norberto (2-1) pitched a scoreless 13th for the win. He worked around a 2-out double to Michael Saunders on a fly ball to right center that Coco Crisp and Brandon Moss lost in the sun and a flock of seagulls that hovered over the field in the extra innings. Oaklands Bartolo Colon was sharp in his second start back from a strained right oblique injury, allowing one run and seven hits in 8 2/3 innings. He struck out five and walked none. YANKEES 7, RED SOX 3 BOSTON Ivan Nova struck out 10, Andruw Jones hit his fourth homer in three games and the surging New York Yankees went into the All-Star break with a win over the Boston Red Sox. Nova (10-3) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings. Jon Lester (5-6) allowed five runs four earned in just 4 1/3 innings for Boston. RANGERS 4, TWINS 3, 13 INN. ARLINGTON, Texas Ian Kinsler hit a winning RBI single with one out in the 13th inning and the AL West-leading Texas Rangers beat the Minnesota Twins after tying the game with three unearned runs in the ninth. Texas had the bases loaded when Kinsler, one of eight Texas players headed to the All-Star game, hit a liner into the left-center field gap that bounced against the wall while his teammates stormed out the dugout to celebrate the teams second consecutive 4-3 extra-inning victory.

Spidey swings back to action with $140M launch

LOS ANGELES (AP) Your new friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has spun himself a $65 million opening weekend and $140 million in his first six days at U.S. theaters. Overseas, Sonys The Amazing Spider-Man added $129.1 million, raising its international total to $201.6 million and worldwide haul to $341.2 million since it began rolling out a week earlier in some foreign markets. The movie started off as a smaller domestic moneymaker than the previous three Spidey films, but it laid to rest objections that it was too soon to relaunch the superhero franchise. The new origin story for the Marvel Comics webslinger comes just five years after Spider-Man 3, Tobey Maguire and director Sam Raimis final movie in a series that shattered box-office records. This was never modeled or was never meant to be Spider-Man 4. This was always a relaunch with a new cast and different stories to tell, and quite frankly, it succeeded beyond our imaginations, said Rory Bruer, Sonys head of distribution. The previous weekends No. 1 film, Universals teddybear comedy Ted, fell to second-place with $32.6 million, raising its domestic total to $120.2 million. Among new releases, Oliver Stones drug-war thriller Savages opened at No. 4 with a solid $16.2 million weekend, also for Universal. Paramounts concert film Katy Perry: Part of Me failed to pack in the pop stars fans, debuting a distant No. 8 with just $7.2 million. Going into wide release after two weekends in a handful of theaters, Woody Allens ensemble romance To Rome with Love broke into the top-10 with $3.5 million. The Sony Pictures Classics release lifted its domestic total to $5.3 million. The Amazing SpiderMan bumped up U.S. receipts, with Hollywood pulling in an estimated $200 million overall for the weekend, according to box-office tracker Thats a 28.6 percent increase over the same weekend last year, when Transformers: Dark of the Moon led with $47.1 million in its second weekend. Leading up to the domestic debut of Amazing Spider-Man last Tuesday, Hollywood had expectations of a six-day total of around $120 million for the film by the end of Fourth of July weekend. That proved a conservative projection, but studio executives genuinely were uncertain how well the film might do so close on the heels of the previous SpiderMan series. To expect the kind of numbers the first Spider-Man did or the second or third would have been kind of reaching, said analyst Paul Dergarabedian. For a reboot that people definitely were on the fence about initially, I think this is a really strong performance. Raimi and Maguires Spider-Man was the first movie to top $100 million in a single weekend, opening with $114.8 million in 2002. Spider-Man 3 set a new weekend record with its $151.1 million debut, which has since been surpassed by such films as 2008s The Dark Knight, last years Harry Potter finale and the current record-holder, The Avengers, with $207.4 million in May. While it took more than a weekend for The Amazing Spider-Man to put up numbers comparable to the earlier Spidey flicks, the film has good reviews and fan reaction for the new cast and crew to build on in subsequent installments. With a film that is a relaunch like this, with a new cast, a new director, there are a lot of pieces. You have to prove yourself, just like Batman Begins had to prove itself and went on to have such incredible success with Dark Knight, Sonys Bruer said. This is a new trilogy and a new era of Spider-Man. We certainly have very much in our minds where its going to go with the story arc. Its just going to be an incredible several years with this relaunch. We have a lot of great stories to tell. Andrew Garfield stars as teen orphan Peter Parker, who becomes a vengeful vigilante and later an urban protector after the bite of a

mutant spider gives him super strength, agility and senses. Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer) directed the film, which co-stars Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Sally Field and Martin Sheen. Amazing Spider-Man had a price advantage over its predecessors. This was the first 3-D Spidey movie, earning 44 percent of its domestic revenues from 3-D screenings, which cost a few dollars more than 2-D shows. The film is the centerpiece of a huge superhero summer that started with The Avengers and continues with the July 20 debut of The Dark Knight Rises, the finale of Christopher Nolan and Christian Bales Batman trilogy. Director Stones Savages chronicles a bloody war between California marijuana growers and a merciless Mexican cartel trying to muscle into their business. The ensemble cast includes Salma Hayek, John Travolta, Benicio Del Toro, Blake Lively, Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson. Perrys Part of Me raised its domestic total to $10.3 million since opening Thursday. Her mix of 3-D stage show and backstage documentary was a bust compared to such concert hits as 2008s Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert, which opened with $31.1 million, and last years Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which premiered with $29.5 million.

States fight those pretending to be tourists to traffic pain killers

By ANDREW WELSHHUGGINS AP Legal Affairs Writer LEBANON, Ohio As he sat in the doctors office, ex-boxer and weightlifter Gerald Dixon explained that years of sports had left him in pain, especially his hands, and he was looking for relief. After a cursory examination at the clinic in West Palm Beach, Fla., Dixon left with a prescription for 180 doses of OxyContin and a plan to return to his Ohio home and sell them on the street. The trips made by Dixon and others like him authorities dub them prescription or drug tourists have complicated the challenges investigators face trying to stem the flow of painkillers, whose prevalence have made drug overdoses the leading cause of accidental death in dozens of states including Ohio, Florida, Kentucky and Utah, surpassing car crashes. Dixon, 52, a drug dealer for most of his adult life, had recently discovered a new angle on an old profession. By driving to Florida just once a month and acquiring a bagful of pain pills legally and illegally he could earn tens of thousands of dollars. The only thing the medical clinics that Dixon visited in Florida cared about was the money, he said. A diagnosis for severe pain was easy to obtain. Its all about cash, cash, cash, Dixon said during a prison interview in April with The Associated Press. You go, you pay the money, and theyre going to come back and say, Yeah, youre right, you was hurt. Prescription tourists thwart local efforts to combat the illegal sale of painkillers and to treat addicts by bringing huge volumes of drugs in from outside. Cracking down on the trade also requires complicated prosecutions crossing multiple state lines. These tourists are based in a variety of states, but investigators in Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia where authorities have already cracked down on local pill mills are among the busiest trying to track trips to Florida, Georgia and elsewhere. The lucrative business involves drug dealers dispatching underlings like Dixon to states with numerous pill mills where they load up on painkillers, then return to sell the drugs to addicts willing to pay as much as $100 a pill, or as much as 10 times the drugstore price. Florida for years was a popular destination because of its virtually unregulated pain clinic industry, which provided easy access to thousands of painkillers marketed under names like OxyContin, Vicodin and Percocet. As Florida cracks down on its pill mills, the clinics have migrated to states like Georgia, which had practically none three years ago and now has as many as 150, said Richard Allen, director of the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency. Runners another term for people like Dixon or addicts sent to buy pills and take them home are coming from as close as Kentucky and Tennessee and as far away as Arizona and Nebraska, Allen said. Theyre like a swarm of locusts, he said. Once they have a scrip, theyll hit every pharmacy in the state trying to get them filled. In eastern Kentucky, several residents arrested in 2009 in a massive drug sweep had visited the Lauderhill Medical Clinic in Oakland Park, Fla. U.S. Attorney Kerry Harvey estimates that nine of every

Archie to find Glee in crossover

PHILADELPHIA The kids from Riverdale are no strangers to high school angst, worries about fitting in or music. Neither are the teens from Glee. Now, Archie, Betty, Veronica and resident boy genius Dilton Doiley will match wits and maybe a vocal or two with the likes of Finn Hudson, Kurt Hummel and Rachel Berry in the pages of Archie Comics, said Jon Goldwater, the co-chief executive officer. Goldwater unveiled the planned collaboration today, ahead of Wednesdays start of Comic-Con in San Diego. He said the crossover between the Fox show and the comic book is set for late this year or in early 2013, and is being written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, one of the television shows writers. It features multiple characters from the long-running comic book and the Fox show now in its third year. Dan Parent is illustrating the story. Ive become friendly with Roberto hes just a genius

10 patients at the clinic are from Kentucky. He prosecutes about five dozen cases a year involving prescription drugs. At West Virginias Huntington Tri-State Airport, authorities have dubbed lowcost flights to Florida aboard Allegiant Air the OxyExpress. The airline isnt accused of wrongdoing, and spokeswoman Jessica Wheeler says it hasnt been approached by authorities. In Tennessee, strict laws governing pain clinics force drug dealers out of state for supplies, using Interstate 75 to bring pills back from Florida or move them farther north, said Kristin Helm, spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Ohio has prosecuted several prescription tourists in recent months, with a federal judge in December sentencing Christopher Thompson of suburban Columbus to 15 years in prison for leading a scheme involving more than a dozen other people who traveled from Ohio to Florida, obtained and filled prescriptions for oxycodone and other drugs, and mailed the pills back to central Ohio for illegal distribution.

PHILADELPHIA The heat that blanketed much of the U.S. will begin easing up this week as temperatures approach normal from the Midwest to the East Coast. Andrew Orrison, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Camp Springs, Md., said Sunday night that a cold front through the South and the Mid-Atlantic will bring thunderstorms and showers. It will break the heat wave weve had, he said, dropping temperatures there to a more normal range of mid- to upper80s. The Southeast and Tennessee Valley will be in the low 90s, still fairly warm, Orrison said, but not as hot as it has been. The Midwest can expect cooler weather, as well, with temperatures in the 80s. The cooler air began sweeping southward Sunday in the eastern half of the country, bringing down some temperatures by 15 or more degrees from Saturdays highs, which topped 100 in cities including Philadelphia, Washington, St. Louis, Indianapolis and Louisville, Ky. The heat of the past several days has been blamed for at least 46 deaths across the country. In Chicago, the Cook County medical examiners office determined Sunday that eight more people died from heatrelated causes, adding to the 10 deaths previously confirmed Saturday. The deaths included a 100-year-old woman, 65-yearold woman, a 53-year-old man, a 46-year-old woman and an unidentified man believed to be about 30 years old. In Tennessee, the third heat-related death of the year was a 62-year-old woman found dead in her home. She had a working air conditioner, but it was not turned on.

writer, said Goldwater, who met the playwright last year at New York Comic Con when he stopped by Archie Comic Publications Inc.s booth. He and I were shooting the breeze. That visit sparked a friendship and, ultimately, the idea for the crossover. It turns out hes been a fan of Archie for years. His most recent Halloween costume? He was dressed as Archie! Goldwater said. For now, says Goldwater, the plot of the four-issue story arc in Archie Comics is a closely-held secret, but it does involve parallel dimensions, dancing and some serious singing, too. Its also the latest step for the publisher, which has expanded its pop cultural offerings beyond just Jughead, Midge and Mr. Weatherbee. In the past two years, Archie Comics has brought in an openly-gay character, Kevin Keller; been visited by the band Kiss; and seen Archie marry Valerie, the bassist for Josie and the Pussycats, and have a daughter with her. Those have reintroduced a lot of people back to Archie, Goldwater said. And its opened a whole new world of people coming to Archie for the first time, too.

How do we get him to move out? Ralph wont even go for free medical care. He hasnt paid us anything for his upkeep and ignores our message to find a job or go on welfare. He is draining our extra funds. We dont want him on the street, but wed like him to be more independent. Any suggestions? -- Peeved and Had Enough Dear Peeved: Ralph apparently believes hes so close to retirement that he is entitled to sponge off of others until he gets there. Are there any other family members or friends who might take him in and give you a break? Unless your husband makes it clear to his brother that he can no longer stay rent-free at your home, this will continue, with no guarantee that he will suddenly move out when hes 62. Talk to your husband and decide what type of deadline you are willing to give, and stick to it. Dear Annie: An Independent Wife said a previous writer should not expect her husband to call every night when hes out of town on business. Instead, she should find her own interests to keep her occupied. My husband travels, too, and unfailingly calls me every night. I am thankful to be married to a man who believes our relationship is important enough to warrant a daily call, if only to tell me he loves me and to hug my pillow for him. -- Virginia

The Herald 3B

Tomorrows Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, JULY 10, 2012 In the year ahead, you could be extremely fortunate with persons who share your interests, politics and philosophy. It behooves you to keep on the best of terms with people who share common aims with you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Go out of your way to be tactful in any involvements you have with those who are in authoritative positions. Remember, theyll have the upper hand at all times, not you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Discussing potential, partially developed plans with others could add confusion to your thinking. Wait until you have everything worked out before talking about your intentions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Its never the right day to poke your nose into a situation that is none of your business. Your curiosity could get you drawn into the complicated affairs of another. M.Y.O.B. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be open-minded to the views of your associates, but, by the same token, dont think everything they say consists of the wisest thoughts either. Use your own judgment when it comes down to it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Unless youre an expert on the subject, guard against a tendency to criticize the efforts of others. Listen and learn; they could be right. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Think twice before getting involved in a project that is being managed by another. Should things go awry, you could be held accountable. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If youre smart, youll keep an issue about which you and your mate are diametrically opposed under wraps. Youre not going to resolve anything, but you could make it worse. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Attitude is everything where your productivity is concerned. If you look at things as being difficult and distasteful, you can expect the job to severely cramp your style. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Spending lots of money is no assurance that youll be guaranteed a good time. In fact, certain expensive activities can turn out to be bummers. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Dont start anything that you know you cant or wont finish, because chances are it will be left undone for quite some time. If that happens, it will be a thorn in your side until you complete it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Subdue inclinations to judge people or events negatively before you have all the facts. If you persist in thinking dark thoughts, you will make sure the day lives up to these expectations. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Be extremely selective of the friends with whom you choose to spend the day if youre planning some type of specific, enjoyable activity. Make sure all are compatible. WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 2012 In the year ahead, you could be remarkably lucky in areas that never proved fortunate in the past, yet you could also experience some disappointment in areas that were previously winners. Fortunately, the good will outweigh the bad. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Someone who is separated from you by distance but not spirit is anxiously awaiting a word from you. If youve been harboring the same feelings, do what you can to touch base. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Even if it takes a few tries, know that two important objectives can be achieved if you go after them. They are interrelated, so your efforts will bring them together simultaneously. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A couple of people youve helped in the past will be supportive of your interests if and when you require assistance. Dont be reluctant to let your needs be known. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Conditions are a bit unusual and somewhat mysterious where your work or career is concerned. Youll be helped rather than hindered, even when you dont ask for assistance. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Someone you find to be appealing has also been rather intrigued by you. This fact might finally become known to both of you through a tantalizing set of circumstances. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you choose to use them, you have the time and ability to complete a lot of little things youve left halffinished recently. Be smart and tie up all those loose ends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Youre in an extremely creative cycle at this point in time, and your ideas could have much greater value than you attach to them. It would be wise to discuss your concepts with others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It looks like your financial prospects are outstanding. Its one of those times when you might want to focus on making extra money. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you want to have more clout with your peers, you only have to assert yourself. You have excellent leadership qualities at present. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Someone whom youve gone out of your way to help in the past has been looking for a way to reciprocate, and he or she just might find out a way to do so. You deserve it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Dont give up on your hopes and expectations, because they have excellent possibilities for being gratified. What you desire will be placed at your fingertips. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -An opportunity from an unsuspected source is likely to present itself, and it could help you fulfill an ambitious desire. However, it will be of a fleeting nature, so you must act fast.
