Authorities say incident may be linked to domestic dispute

2 girls critical,no arrests after shooting

A 2-year-old girl is considered to be in critical condition and a 5-year-old girl is considered to be in critical-stable condition. They are being treated at Geisinger-Janet Weis Childrens Hospital in Danville. An eyewitness at the scene of the shooting on Saturday said it appeared one girl was wounded in the neck and the other in the hip or abdomen area around 1:30 p.m. behind building 304 in the complex. Critical-stable condition means the older girl is doing a bit better than the younger than the younger one, Salavantis said. The district attorney said she could not say anything about the ongoing investigation for fear of jeopardizing the effort. This case is very important to me, Salavantis said. My thoughts and prayers are with the family right now. Im very grateful that both children are still alive. She said it appeared both children had been living or staying at the apartment where the incident occurred. Search warrants for the apartment unit in question were led, and state police, a county detective and city police were investigating. Initial evidence suggests the shooting resulted from a domestic dispute and it appears the general public is not in any danger, according to a city press release. Two state police detectives entered Wilkes-Barre City Police headquarters around 3 p.m. Sunday with several brown paper evidence bags. They said they had been at the scene sometime during the day, but were not authorized to give comment. They could not conrm the bags were from Sherman Hills. Police took at least ve people into custody a few hours after the incident Saturday, but no charges have been led, accord-

Experts could visit site of suspected chemical attack

Syria agrees to probe

Numbers added to fracking debate

Associated Press

DAMASCUS, Syria Syria reached an agreement with the United Nations on Sunday to allow a team of international experts to visit the site of alleged chemical weapons attacks last week outside Damascus, state media and the U.N. said. A statement on Syrian state television said Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem and U.N. disarmament chief Angela Kane struck the deal during talks in Damascus, and that the two sides are working to nalize the date and time of the visit. The world body said that a team of U.N. experts already in Syria has been instructed to focus on investigating the purported attack on Wednesday. The mission is preparing to conduct on-site fact-nding activities today, U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said in a statement. Anti-government activists and Doctors Without Borders say that more than 300 people were killed in the alleged toxic gas attack on the eastern suburbs of the Syrian capital.

St. Josephs Church holds final Mass


WYOMING The will of God is hard to understand, the Rev. Walter Skiba explained to the congregation of his church on Sunday. After 99 years in the borough, St. Josephs Roman Catholic Church closed its doors for the last time Sunday. Skiba, the pastor there from 1981 until retir-

ing in 2006, gave the homily during the final Mass. He spoke of Scriptures most trying moments when Jesus had to yield to Gods will. In the end, he said, God blesses those who persevere.

PITTSBURGH A project examining the local health impacts from natural gas drilling is providing some of the rst preliminary numbers about people who may be affected, and the results challenge the industry position that no one suffers but also suggest the problems may not be as widespread as some critics claim. The Southwest Pennsylvania Environmental Health Project has been trying to help people who feel theyve been sickened by natural gas drilling or processing for about 18 months in one county south of Pittsburgh. The work is potentially important because its one of the rst long-term attempts to monitor drilling-related health impacts, and it could help other groups identify possible symptoms. The project found 27 cases in which people in Washington County believe they were hurt by nearby drilling seven cases of skin rashes, four of eye irritation, 13 of breathing problems and three of headaches and dizziness. The skin exposures were from water and the other cases were from air. The numbers dont represent a full survey of the area, just cases so far with plausible exposures. The EHP group is trying to help those who have been exposed to drilling-related air or water pollution, toxicologist David Brown told The Associated Press, adding that theyre nding an array of symptoms in some people who live close to either wells or processing stations. There are some surprises: Air pollution seems to be more of a threat than water pollution, and the huge processing stations that push gas into national pipelines may be more of a problem than the drilling sites themselves. The processing stations can handle large volumes of gas from hundreds of wells. Washington County has a population of about 200,000, and about 700 natural gas wells have been drilled there in the past six years. Its also See FRACKING | 12A

DAILY NUMBER - 7-7-5 BIG 4 - 5-3-0-0 QUINTO - 9-7-6-8-2 TREASURE HUNT

DALLAS TWP. A Harveys Lake man was killed when his bicycle ran into a pickup truck on state Route 309 on Friday night, township police said. Cyclist David Michael

Denlinger, 25, died at 1:46 a.m. Saturday at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. Kendall Dawn Jackloski, 23, of Kunkle, was driving a 2012 Ford F150 pickup southbound on Route 309 at Old Tunkhannock Highway when Denlingers cycle struck the truck at 9:40 p.m.,

Malkemes, 25, of Monroe Township, told police he saw Denlinger cross from the northbound into the southbound lane, directly into Jackloskis path. Jackloski was not injured and showed no signs of alcohol or drug intoxication, police said,

and will not be charged in connection with the crash. The bicycle Denlinger was riding had no working lights and minimal reectors on the pedals and spokes, and he was not wearing a helmet, police said. Toxicology results on Denlinger were pending Saturday.

attributed the success of The Butler particularly to the marketing power of Winfrey and a savvy choice of a release date with little competition. This is a lm that you wouldnt want to open in June or July, said Dergarabedian. The release date that the Weinstein Co. picked absolutely paid off for them. In its third week of release, Warner Bros. R-rated road trip comedy Were the Millers, starring Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston, continued to thrive. It took in $13.5 million over the weekend, bringing its overall total to $91.7 million. Woody Allens Blue Jasmine became his widest release ever. Sony Pictures Classics expanded Allens drama of a ruined socialite starring Cate Blanchett to 1,283 theaters. It made $4.3 million over the weekend after earning more than $10 million in four weeks of limited release. The 3-D release of Universals Jurassic Park, which opened in North America in April, led the overseas market with $30 million over the weekend, most of that from its opening in China. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood. com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic gures will be released today.


NEW YORK Lee Daniels The Butler served up a second helping at the box ofce, topping the weekend with $17 million according to studio estimates Sunday. That was enough to lead all lms on a late August weekend known as a dumping ground for studios following their summer blockbusters and before the start of the fall movie-going season. Daniels historical drama about a long-serving White House butler, starring Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey, last weekend opened with $24.6 million for the Weinstein Co. Three new releases failed to catch on. The teen fantasy Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, adapted from the popular young adult book series, opened tepidly in third with $9.3 million on the weekend and $14 million since opening Wednesday. With franchise hopes, Sony Screen Gems has already started production on a sequel, again starring Lily Collins as a New York teenager who discovers she has mystical powers. Edgar Wrights pub-crawl-gonewrong comedy The Worlds End opened with $8.9 million for Focus Features. That was a better start for The

Paul Dergarabedian,

Worlds End, which stars Simon Pegg, than Wrights last lm with the actor: 2007s Hot Fuzz. It opened with $5.8 million. Playing in 1,549 theaters, The Worlds End did its business in less than half the theaters of The Butler or Mortal Instruments. Despite good reviews, Lionsgates home-invasion horror ick Youre Next opened weakly with $7.1 million. With a cumulative total of $52.3 million, The Butler is headed for a domestic haul of $100 million. It has followed the release pattern of another movie about race and domestic service: the 2011 drama The Help, also released in August. The Weinstein Co. hopes that The Butler will follow suit and be a magnet for Oscar nominations. Paul Dergarabedian, analyst for box-ofce tracker,

HANOVER TWP. Township police reported the following: Thomas Dombroski reported that two men damaged a political campaign sign and tore garage signs off a utility pole on Hazle Street at about 3 a.m. Saturday. Dombroski said he yelled at the men, who then kicked in his front door and fled. At 6 a.m. Saturday an employee of Waste Reduction and Recycling on the Sans Souci Parkway reported that someone cut a chain on the front gate overnight. Nothing was reported missing. HAZLETON City police reported the following: Police were dispatched to the 200 block of East Noble Street at 11:29 p.m. Friday to investigate a report that three men tried to steal a mans dog and then fled in a white Caravan. The dog was unharmed. Police went to a Bennett Court residence at 12:18 a.m. and heard music coming from within. Felipe Vicente, 32, of Hazleton, was advised of the citys noise ordinance and cited, police said. Michael M. Matriccino, 27, of Hazleton, was cited with disorderly conduct after an incident in the 400 block of Kiefer Avenue at 2:23 a.m. Saturday. Police said Matriccino was heard yelling inside his residence and refused to answer his door for police. Elizabeth Polonco, 25, of Hazleton, was cited with a noise violation after a disturbance in the 100 block of South Pine Street at 1:35 a.m. Saturday. Christian J. Arnold, 25, of Hazleton, was cited with a drugrelated violation and disorderly conduct after an incident in the area of Second and Alter streets at 1:51 a.m. Saturday. He was reported to be panhandling and also was found in possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. Police are investigating an incident in which someone threw rocks and broke two windows at home in the 200 block of East Birch Street between Friday night and Saturday morning. Police responded to La Casa Restaurant on East Diamond Avenue at 8:45 p.m. Saturday, where a female said she was struck in the head during a fight.

SCRANTON Most women do not realize that a sexual touch from their partner that is not consensual is considered rape, said Mike Domitrz, an anti-sexual-violence advocate, before his lecture Sunday at Marywood University. They often say they did not realize they had a choice, he said. Domitrz, of Milwaukee, has been bringing his Can I Kiss You? dating safety program to colleges and high schools since 1992. This is his eighth year of greeting incoming Marywood students with this important message. Dating safety is an issue that is frequently shied away from but with societys prominent sexual messages, needs to be addressed, he said. Sexual assault is not just a crime against women. Domitrz in his hour-long program notes two cases in which a man was a victim of rape. According to the Rape Abuse and Incest National Network, an anti-sexual-violence organization, 44 percent of rape victims are under age 18, 30 percent are under 30 and 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone the victim knows. Many victims hold back from reporting the assault thinking that they somehow caused the crime. There is only one person at fault the rapist, Domitrz said. During the program, he discussed three main points: verbal consent, intervening to protect someone when alcohol is present and supporting someone who was assaulted. Communication is a key ingredient to a strong relationship. Partners should feel comfortable to discuss their feelings, likes and dislikes, boundaries and dating history with each other before moving into a sexually relationship, he said. They should give each other an equal voice on the relationship, he said. You must be able to talk about it. If you cannot, thats OK, too. Then slow down. In the new-found freedom of college life, many students will nd themselves at parties where there is drinking. In these environments, one person could be trying to get another drunk to hook up with, he said. Domitrz told students that if they hear of this or see it, get several friends together and go to the person in danger and get the individual out of there. Confront the person doing wrong with your group and tell him or her you are taking the other home safely, he said. Handling a confession from victim of rape is a delicate situation. Domitrz said the rst thing to do is not to ask who it was or what were they wearing; do not start with Im sorry. Thank them for sharing, and ask them how can you help, he said. Domitrz designed his program while in college after receiving a call that his sister was raped. The affect it had on his sister and his family fueled him to learn more about what crime. He created Can I Kiss You?, and wrote three different books on date safety. Domitrz hopes that by carrying out this message he will make students rethink the way they communicate within their relationships. I let the kids use Twitter during the program, he said. If you follow the conversation, their responses and comments are great.

Several acting controller applicants told Luzerne County ofcials last week they visited the controllers ofce and learned the remaining two employees are frustrated and prevented from completing work because the new nancial software system still has no historical data on spending and receipts. The issue came up during councils public interview of council applicants. The new $1.28 million system was implemented last month, but information on past nances wasnt scheduled to be loaded until the end of August, said county Interim Budget/Finance Division Head Brian Swetz. Swetz said he can still supply reports on past nances if requested by departments, and said he will alert employees of that option. The new system will eventually include information on all accounts dating as far back as 2004, he said. County Council will select an acting controller at Tuesdays meeting, which Jennifer begins at 7 p.m. Learnin the council meeting room at Andes the courthouse. County C o u n c i l Notebook members Rick Morelli, Rick Williams and Stephen A. Urban did not attend the interview sessions, but council Chairman Tim McGinley said they have the option to listen to audio recordings before the voting session. Hazleton Public Transit representatives will attend Tuesdays meeting to discuss why they have resisted a state push to merge the citys bus service with the county Transportation Authority. The county is funding both bus services $127,949 for the Hazleton area and $485,345 for the rest of the county this year. The state has pushed for a merger, estimating it could save up to $1 million annually and reduce the countys contribution, but city ofcials dispute the projected savings and believe the quality of Hazleton-area bus service will diminish with a county takeover.

Luzerne County Councilman Steven A. Urban sent his wife, Linda, another email Sunday morning containing three words, I am shing.

Took a plane. Went shing, the email said. She said the distant language does not sound like her husband. Urbans son, Stephen J. Urban, said his father has taken unannounced shing trips before, including an impromptu salmonshing excursion to Alaska, and expects his father needed a break.

The plan is a municipal wish list of projects that could address damage and other problems caused by natural disasters, primarily ooding, said county Planning/Zoning Director Adrian Merolli. The federal government requires an update every ve years, and municipalities must participate and approve the plan to remain eligible for government disaster assistance, Merolli said. The current plan is on the planning commission section of the county website, Walter Griffith resigned as controller, possibly as part of a plea agreement related to wiretap charges against him, but he isnt keeping quiet. Grifth sent County Council an email Friday questioning why the county records retention committee hasnt held a public meeting to approve the use of a special records fund for rent to store county documents at the Thomas C. Thomas building in downtown Wilkes-Barre. The fund, established by state law in 1998, comes from a fee on deeds recorded in the county. Grifth described county Manager Robert Lawton as county dictator in the email and said he will le a formal complaint with the state Attorney Generals Ofce if he doesnt receive a response to his request by Aug. 30.

Around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, two black males wearing white T-Shirts went to three separate addresses on Short Street and Bunny Lane telling residents they were from UGI utility company and asking to enter the homes, according to police.

Borough police warn residents that utility workers should be asked to show identication before letting them inside. They also ask residents to report similar activity to police by calling 911 with descriptions of the people and vehicles they drive.

There arent any perfect people in existence, said Nichols, 24. Most church subcultures have the expectation that everyone has it all together, but no one does. Jesus was perfect for us. So we trust him, not ourselves. Restored Church rents the old First United Methodist Church from the community arts center, Downtown Arts. Members have been holding preview services there since July. During the inaugural service, church leaders will explain their mission in the community and cut the ceremonial ribbon with representatives from Wilkes-Barre Business Association.

Festival showcases crafts and more

Times Leader Correspondent

Juggler Robert Smith entertains the patrons at the Arts at Hayfield craft festival at Penn State Wilkes-Barre campus in Lehman Township on Sunday.

Pete G. Wilcox /The Times Leader

LEHMAN TWP. Frank Little Bear, of York, Pa., appeared Sunday at the Arts at Hayeld Event at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, performing tribal dances that were just part of the attraction for those who turned out for a day of arts-and-crafts and more. Doing the Eagle Dance, the Sneak up Dance and the Snake Dance, Little Bear was accompanied by his 10-year-old son, Thomas Little Thunder. Little Bear explained the Eagle Dance is the welcoming dance, the Sneak up Dance was previously performed as a war dance, and now has a new meaning; it is used to pay

tribute to veterans and war heroes. The Snake Dance is the social dance in which all in attendance are invited to join in as a symbol of different cultures merging together. Little Bear said All human beings are on this earth for a purpose and as a solution to a problem. Little Bear has been attending the Hayeld events since 1999 and said that he will keep returning every year to share his culture with others so that they can get a better understanding of Native Americans. Little Bear is from the Cree tribe of Western Canada and the North-West plains states. Janie Lawless of the Childrens Library in Scranton had never been to the Hayeld events before and said

she was very impressed with the day. She said she is a friend of Little Bear and thinks that it a great way of bring Native American culture to the general population. Numerous vendors also participated in the event. Bernadine Vojko and her mother, Bernadine Borinski, displayed Votkos crafts from her Wyoming business, Flower Finery. Votko, who teaches at the Wyoming Seminary, began working on crafts in 1985. She works with dried and silk owers; pumpkins are one of her main themes. She said all members of her immediate family have pitched in to help at one time or another at the Hayeld events. She has been coming to Hayeld for the past 25 years and will denitely

return. Votko said attending the event is part of ending the summer and a chance to see old friends again. Patti Kachmar of Kingston and her cousin Janet McCarroll of Lehman displayed their hand-crafted quilted creations. The two said they turn out to sell their items and to be able to sit and catch up on what each has been doing during the past year. The items are also displayed at events for the Back Mountain Harvest Peace Makers Club. The next Arts at Hayeld event will be on Nov. 3, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and is titled Homespun Holiday. For more information on the Hayeld events, call (570) 675-9232.

Wind Gap pilot targets Cartwright

ANDREW M. SEDER Matthew Dietz, a pilot, is used to taking off and aiming high. The 36-year-old from Northampton County has decided to make his first foray into politics a bid for Congress. Dietz, a father of three from Wind Gap, will seek the Republican nomination for the states 17th Congressional District that represents portions of Lackawanna, Luzerne, Carbon, Northampton and Monroe counties and all of Schuylkill County.

announced hell be seeking the Republican nod. Whoever comes out on top in next springs GOP primary will face U.S. Rep. Matthew Cartwright, D-Moosic, next November. The two Republicans have pledged to focus their campaigns on themselves and defeating Cartwright, rather than attacking each other. While Moylan and Dietz have met and discussed their goals, Dietz said he is focusing more on fiscal issues while Moylans top of the platform issues are his anti-abortion stance and his protection of the Second Amendment.

AGE: 36 RESIDES: Wind Gap, though he was born and raised in Clinton, N.J. EDUCATION: Graduated from Pen Argyl High School in 1995 and received a professional pilot certificate in 1988 after attending Northamtpon Community College and Lehigh-Carbon Community College. FAMILY: Wife Lori and three children, ages 11, 9 and 4. CAREER: Has been a pilot for a private charter company for seven years. PARTY: Republican

Dietz said that while he does share Moylans concerns over those two issues, for him, the driving factor to get into the race was the future of his children and future generations in America. Our countys at a crossroads, said Dietz, who works as a pilot for LR Services Inc., a charter operator at the Lehigh Valley International Airport. Dietz We can control our debt. I know we can do better, and thats why I decided to run for Congress. He said that even though the 17th District was redrawn to give a clear registration advantage to Democrats, he believes the issues at hand cross party lines and hes hoping Democrats and Independents agree with his platform and his solutions and overlook the R next to his name. We need to create jobs, familysustaining jobs in order to right this country, Dietz said. That means sup-

porting small businesses by simplifying tax codes and other means. We need to empower small businesses to grow and expand, he added. Dietz said he pledges not to participate in the governments publicly funded pension program if elected and would support a no budget, no pay bill to ensure Congress approves a bill each session.He also said he supports a full repeal of the Affordable Healthcare Act, known as Obamacare. With an appointed term on the Wind Gap Park Board as his only government-related background on his resume, Dietz said he believes he can make the most difference on the countrys future by being elected to Congress. Noting his three children with wife Lori, sons ages 11 and 9 and a daughter whos 4, he said the time is now to start making changes to give them the best shot of a debt-free future. Our debt is really going to constrain their opportunities going forward, Dietz said.

Courts hear Mubarak,Islamists cases

CAIRO Egyptian courts on Sunday heard separate court cases against former President Hosni Mubarak and top leaders of his archrival, the Muslim Brotherhood, both over allegations of killing protesters in separate instances. Egyptian media portrayed the prosecution of longtime foes as trials of the two regimes, an attempt to show that both Islamists and secularleaning Mubarak authoritarian regimes are alike after a July 3 military coup toppled President Mohammed Morsi, a Brotherhood member. Weeks of mass rallies by Muslim Brotherhood supporters over Morsis ouster have weakened over the past days as security forces have detained many Brotherhood leaders. The military-backed government has responded by relaxing curfew hours, trying to signal a return to normalcy across the country. We have crossed the swamps and muddy pools, and now we are on the safe side, Ahmed elMusalamani, a spokesman for interim-presidents spokesman, said Sunday. He added: We have overcome the tough phase. At a heavily-fortied courtroom in eastern Cairo, Mubarak looked relaxed in dark sunglasses and white clothes as he appeared for his rst court appearance since he was released from prison last week and transferred to a military hospital. The 85-year-old ex-president sat in a chair next to his two sons who are being tried in a separate corruptionrelated case. Mubarak has been in detention since April 2011. He was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison last year for failing to stop the killing of about 900 protesters in the 18-day 2011 uprising, but his sentence was overturned on appeal. In April, his retrial opened along with those of his security chief and six top police commanders. His trial has been postponed to Sept. 14. In a separate hearing Sunday, top Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie and ve other members of the Islamist Brotherhood saw their hearings postponed until Oct. 29. The defendants, two of whom are still in hiding and being tried in absentia, face charges stemming from clashes outside the Brotherhoods Cairo headquarters on June 30 that left nine dead. The four in detention were not present in the downtown Cairo courtroom for security reasons. The military ousted Morsi after millions took to the street demanding he step down. Hes been held incommunicado since his overthrow. Prosecutors have accused him of conspiring with foreign groups to break out of prison during the chaos of the

Gunman, boss in Fla. shooting once close

Residents in the close-knit Florida community of Lake Butler are trying piece together why a longtime employee of a trucking company went on a shooting spree. Police say Hubert Allen Jr. drove around Saturday and shot former coworkers and his onetime boss, Marvin Pritchett. Authorities say Allen killed Pritchett and a former co-worker and wounded two other former co-workers before he killed himself. Residents said Allen and Pritchett were once close. Pritchett was known around town as Mr. P, a generous man and friendly boss. They describe Allen as a quiet man without grudges who recently developed heart disease. Police didnt release any new details Sunday or information on a possible motive.

attacks against churches and government buildings. The Brotherhood and Morsi supporters deny their protests are violent and deny that they attack churches, accusing authorities of smearing their movement.

Almanac: Super Bowl may be Storm Bowl

Mohamed Osman Mohamud once called for jihad against the West and said the attacks of Sept. 11 were awesome. The bomb he hoped would kill thousands, he said, was beautiful. Now, hes begging for mercy. My heart is lled with remorse, shame, sorrow, pain and misery every time I think about my actions on that day, Mohamud wrote in a letter led in federal court in Oregon and addressed to the judge who will sentence him. That day Mohamud is referring to is Nov. 26, 2010, when he planned to set off a bomb at the crowded annual Christmas tree lighting in Portlands Pioneer Courthouse Square. But the 1,800-pound bomb that Mohamud tried to detonate remotely through a cellphone was fake, designed by federal investigators to resemble an actual explosive. The men Mohamud thought were al-Qaida operatives were undercover ofcers. In January, a jury convicted Mohamud, 22, of attempting to set off a weapon of mass destruction. He faces a sentence of up to life in prison.

WASHINGTON Mary-Pat Hector of Atlanta was operating much like a 1960s civil rights activist as she laid plans for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. She was constantly on the phone as she conrmed event details, tweaked the draft of the speech she gave at Saturdays rally at the Lincoln Memorial and prepared for a presentation. Mary-Pat is 15 years old. Just as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. led the Montgomery Bus Boycott at age 26, and Rep. John Lewis helped to lead freedom rides at 23, young Americans like Mary-Pat are not letting age get in the way as they seek more than a contributing role in the push for social reform. Young people are eager to inuence this years March on Washington, says Jessica Brown, national coordinator

for the Black Youth Vote coalition, which organized several youth events around Saturdays march to the Lincoln Memorial. Of course you have the seasoned people who are there, and they are always rightfully going to have their position, Brown said. But youre starting to see the pickup of the youth saying, This is our time, this is our moment, this is the opportunity we have to show the world and the nation, that were here and were ready to work and organize to get things done. In 1963, those seasoned people were A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin, who birthed the idea of a Washington march to appeal for jobs and justice, and ultimately attracted 250,000 people. Today, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III, who were 8 and 5 years old, respectively, in 1963, are the veterans who brought thousands to the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday. The King Center also has organized a cer-

emony on Wednesday, the actual march anniversary, when President Barack Obama will speak. Friday night, students and young adults gathered at Howard University in Washington for a mass meeting and rally ahead of Saturdays march activity patterned after the student rallies that were held before major demonstrations during the civil rights movement. Anthony Miller, president of the Howard University Student Association, said students recognize the historical signicance, and some are using this moment to express their continuing anger over the shooting death of black Florida teen Trayvon Martin. They want to be able to do something positive and something that will uplift this situation and really bring it to light, Miller says. Students want to effect a positive change and push this country in the right direction, he said, And I think this is an excellent opportunity.

Calif. city looks to seize loans to ease mortgages

Associated Press


A Nigerian airline says a teenager hid in the wheel well of a plane and survived a 35-minute domestic ight. Arik Airline managing director Chris Ndulue said Sunday the incident magnies incessant security lapses at our airports. Arik spokesman Ola Adebanji said passengers and crew had alerted the pilots and the Federal Aviation Agency that a boy was seen running to the plane as it was taxiing to take off Saturday from southern Benin City. Agency spokesman Yakubu Dati said security agents swept the area and found nothing. Adebanji said a boy aged 13 or 14 jumped out of the wheel well when the plane landed in the commercial capital of Lagos. He was arrested by Arik personnel. Nigeria has a history of major aviation disasters and security challenges.

SAN FRANCISCO When the mayor of Richmond, Calif., and a gaggle of activists and homeowners showed up at the Wells Fargo Bank headquarters in downtown San Francisco this month, they were on a mission to speak with the banks chief executive. They wanted the bank to drop a lawsuit aimed at stopping Richmonds rst-in-thenation plan to use the governments constitutional power of eminent domain to seize hundreds of mortgages from Wells Fargo and other nancial institutions. As Mayor Gayle McLaughlin and the plans backers approached the bank building, security guards locked the doors. After a

bank ofcial told her there would be no meeting then and that someone would call her later, she grabbed a bullhorn. I am absolutely not backing down, McLaughlin said, as curious tourists and lunching ofce workers milled about. Wells Fargo, three other banks and even the Federal Housing Finance Agency think otherwise. The banks have led two lawsuits alleging that the plan is an illegal abuse of eminent domain, which allows governments to seize private property for public use like a house in the path of a new highway or a piece of land needed for a new park. The banks argue the plan would severely disrupt the United States mortgage industry because many

Protesters in San Francisco demanded that Wells Fargo drop a lawsuit aimed at stopping Richmond, Calif.s first-in-the-nation plan to use the governments constitutional power of eminent domain to seize hundreds of mortgages from Wells Fargo and other financial institutions.

other cities would likely adopt the same program to help homeowners who owe more on their mortgages than their houses are worth. So far, Richmond has sent out more than 600 offers, but

has not yet begun any eminent domain proceedings. Newark, N.J., North Las Vegas, Nev., El Monte, Calif., and Seattle are considering similar plans, according to Wells Fargos lawsuit.

LEWISTON, Maine The Farmers Almanac is using words like piercing cold, bitterly cold and biting cold to describe the upcoming winter. And if its predictions are right, the rst outdoor Super Bowl in years will be a messy Storm Bowl. The 197-year-old publication that hits newsstands today predicts a winter storm will hit the Northeast around the time the Super Bowl is played at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands in New Jersey. It also predicts a colder-than-normal winter for two-thirds of the country and heavy snowfall in the Midwest, Great Lakes and New England. Were using a very strong four-letter word to describe this winter, which is C-O-L-D. Its going to be very cold, said Sandi Duncan, managing editor. Based on planetary positions, sunspots and lunar cycles, the almanacs secret formula is largely unchanged since founder David Young published the rst almanac in 1818. Modern scientists dont put much stock in sunspots or tidal action, but the almanac says its forecasts used by readers to plan weddings and plant gardens are correct about 80 percent of the time. Last year, the forecast called for cold weather for the eastern and central U.S. with milder temperatures west of the Great Lakes. It started just the opposite but ended up that way. Caleb Weatherbee, the publications elusive prognosticator, said he was off by only a couple of days on two of the seasons biggest storms: a February blizzard that paralyzed the Northeast with 3 feet of snow in some places and a sloppy storm the day before springs arrival that buried parts of New England. Readers who put stock in the almanacs forecasts may do well to stock up on long johns, especially if theyre lucky enough to get tickets to the Super Bowl on Feb. 2. The rst Super Bowl held outdoors in a cold-weather environment could be both super cold and super messy, with a big storm due Feb. 1 to 3, the almanac says. Said Duncan: It really looks like the Super Bowl may be the Storm Bowl. The Maine-based Farmers Almanac, not to be confused with the New Hampshire-based Old Farmers Almanac, which will be published next month, features a mix of corny jokes, gardening tips, nostalgia and home remedies, like feeding carrots to dogs to help with bad breath and using mashed bananas to soothe dry, cracked skin in the winter. Also in this years edition, editor Peter Geiger is leading a campaign to get people to ditch the penny, like Canada is doing.

Powell calls Trayvon Martin verdictquestionable

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON Former Secretary of State Colin Powell called the jury verdict that cleared the killer of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin questionable and urged President Barack Obama to speak more on issues of race during an interview that aired Sunday. The rst black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said the Martin verdict soon would be forgotten but said Obama and all presidents have a responsibility to discuss the nations history of racial injustice. Powell spoke as Washington marked the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.s

march that included the iconic I Have a Dream speech. If Dr. King was here, Im quite sure he would say, Congratulations on all the progress thats been made, but lets keep going. The dream is not fully achieved yet, said Powell, also the rst African American to serve the nation as secretary of state. Asked about the Martin killing, Powell questioned its impact on the civil rights discourse. A Florida jury found George Zimmerman acted in selfdefense and acquitted him during a criminal trial. I think that it will be seen as a questionable judgment on the part of the judicial system down

there, but I dont know if it will have staying power, Powell said. These cases come along and they blaze across the midnight sky and then after a period of time, theyre forgotten. That doesnt mean Obama should keep silent, though, Powell said. Id like to see him be more passionate about race questions, Powell said of Obama, whom he endorsed during the 2008 and 2012 presidential election. For the president to speak out on it is appropriate. I think all leaders, black and white, should speak out on this issue, the Republican added. Powell said he didnt fully grasp the civil rights upheaval happening

during the early 1960s until he returned from Vietnam. His wife, Alma, didnt share the developments with him from their home in Birmingham, Ala., and his service blocked him from engaging in the political upheaval. He said the civil rights era helped blacks but more needs to be done. A lot has been accomplished, and we should be so proud of our accomplishments, he said. But at the same time, that mirror should show us that there are still problems in this country, that there is still racial bias that still exists in certain parts of AP photo our country.

He said America has come a Powell spoke with CBS long way toward racial equality 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr.s I Have a Dream speech. Face the Nation.

Efforts by Snowden confound U.S. govt

The Associated Press

Many lobbyists getting public pensions

Associated Press

WASHINGTON The U.S. governments efforts to determine which highly classied materials leaker Edward Snowden took from the National Security Agency have been frustrated by Snowdens sophisticated efforts to cover his digital trail by deleting or bypassing electronic logs, government ofcials told The Associated Press. Such logs would have showed what information Snowden viewed or downloaded. The governments forensic investigation is wrestling with Snowdens apparent ability to defeat safeguards established to monitor and deter people looking at information without proper permission, said the ofcials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they werent authorized to discuss the sensitive developments publicly. The disclosure undermines the Obama administrations assurances to Congress and the public that the NSA surveillance programs cant be abused because its spying systems are so aggressively monitored and audited for oversight purposes: If Snowden could defeat the NSAs own tripwires and internal burglar alarms, how many other employees or contractors could do the same? In July, nearly two months after Snowdens earliest disclosures, NSA Director Keith Alexander declined to say whether he had a good idea of what Snowden had downloaded or how many NSA les Snowden had taken with him, noting an ongoing criminal investigation. NSA spokeswoman Vanee Vines told the AP that Alexander had a sense of what documents and information had been taken, but he did not say the comprehensive investigation had been completed. Vines would not say whether Snowden had found a way to view and download the documents he took without the NSA knowing. In defending the NSA surveillance programs that Snowden revealed, Deputy Attorney General James Cole told Congress last month that the administration effectively monitors the activities of employees using them. This program goes under careful audit, Cole said. Everything that is done under it is documented and reviewed before the decision is made and reviewed again after these decisions are made to make sure that nobody has done the things that youre concerned about happening.

Theres a big problem with hypocrisy when these lobbyists have been pushing austerity and benefit cuts for other government workers while they themselves enjoy solid state pensions.

Michael Kink, Strong Economy for All Coalition

Director Peter Baynes, who makes $196,000 a year and gets a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, argues that his and other associations have been at the fore of pushing to reduce taxpayers costs, including reducing the costs of the pension system they share. New York lawmakers recently acted to reduce benets for future government hires and are proposing 401(k) savings programs for employees instead of traditional pensions. Its clear that theres a big problem with hypocrisy when these lobbyists have been pushing austerity and benet cuts for other government workers while they themselves enjoy solid state pensions, said Michael Kink of the progressive group Strong Economy for All Coalition. Do as I say, not as I do seems to be their approach on retirement cuts. Workers who have faced cuts in pay and pensioners have a right to be angry as do voters, Kink said. In many states, lobbying groups for states and counties take positions that could conict with taxpayer interests, such as advocating to weaken caps on property tax increases and boosting state school aid. But associations of cities, counties and school

boards argue that a plausible case can be made for allowing them to get state pensions. These quasi-government organizations operate mostly or solely on dues from their members local governments or school boards typically which are paid out of taxpayer-funded budgets. They argue they pool their resources to give a voice to government entities that serve taxpayers. Its a technical truism that lobbying groups are not supposed to be in the system, said Richard Brodsky, a former New York assemblyman. But what they are doing is carrying out missions assigned to them by public ofcials in the public interest as they understand it. Which groups get the pension benet vary widely across the nation. In Colorado, the list includes the Colorado High School Activities Associations, which runs state sports tournaments. Alabama gives it to the state afliate of the National Education Association teachers union. Washington state includes the Washington Apple Commission, which operates like a trade group. North Carolinas state Athletic Coaches Association is included, as is Tennessees private Industry Council.

Accommodating religious opponents has already been a sticking point in legislative battles
AP Religion Writer

Gay marriage uniting,dividing religious groups

Wilson. Most of the states have protected religiously afliated nonprots from potential government penalty for refusing to host same-sex marriage ceremonies. The only other protection written into the laws is a provision First Amendment scholars consider redundant: All spell out that clergy are exempt from performing same-sex ceremonies and cant be sued for their refusal. The overall result: a patchwork of regulation, with gaps that are likely to become the target of lawsuits. Massachusetts and Iowa, where same-sex marriage won recognition through the courts, have approved no enhanced religious exemptions related to the rulings. The statehouse negotiations concern what, if any, exemptions religious believers should have in the public arena. Should a religious social service agency with government funding be required to legally recognize married same-sex couples in all circumstances? Should a congregation that makes money renting property to the public be required to allow gay wedding receptions in the space? Some advocates go further, arguing religious accommodations should extend in some cases to individuals. In this view, owners of a mom-and-pop bakery that makes wedding cakes should be exempt. So too should the county clerk who issues marriage licenses, as long as someone else in the clerks ofce can step in easily and provide the service. Many cities and states have anti-discrimination ordinances that include sexual orientation, setting up nes or other penalties for failing to comply. Absent an exemption, objectors may have to shut down their businesses or give up their jobs, religious leaders say. They argue losing your livelihood is too harsh a punishment for views on such a core religious issue as marriage. But gay rights advocates say this argument puts too heavy a burden on gays and lesbians, and presents them with an unfair set of choices. In some states, the price of equality in marriage has been agreeing to give up protections against discrimination as part of the negotiations, said Jenny Pizer, senior counsel for the gay rights group Lambda Legal. In ways, I think,

The battle over gay marriage is heating up in the states, energizing religious groups that oppose samesex relationships but also dividing them. In June, the U.S. Supreme Court gave married gays and heterosexuals equal status under federal law, but did not declare a nationwide right for gays to marry, setting the stage for state-by-state decisions. So faith leaders are forming new coalitions and preparing for the legislative and courtroom battles ahead. Yet, traditional religious leaders, their supporters and the First Amendment attorneys advising them are divided over strategy and goals, raising questions about how much they can inuence the outcome: Several religious liberty experts say conservative faith groups should take a pragmatic approach given the advances in gay rights. Offer to stop ghting same-sex marriage laws in exchange for broad religious exemptions, these attorneys say. If they need to get those religious accommodations, theyre going to have to move now, said Robin Fretwell Wilson, a family law specialist at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. Critics reject the idea as a premature surrender. Religious leaders lobbying for exemptions cant agree how broad they should be. A major difference is over whether forprot companies should qualify for a faith-based exception. Some religious liberty advocates and faith leaders are telling houses of worship they could be forced to host gay weddings, with their clergy required to ofciate. The Louisiana Baptist Convention is advising congregations to rewrite their bylaws to state they only allow heterosexual marriage ceremonies, and the Alliance Defending Freedom, a religious liberty group that opposes samesex marriage, is advising the same. But legal experts across a spectrum of views on gay rights say it cant happen given strong First Amendment protections for what happens inside the sanctuary. A few people at both ends of the spectrum have talked about religion and religious freedom in a way that is really destructive, said Brian Walsh, executive director of the Ethics & Public Policys American Religious Freedom program which has formed legislative caucuses so far in 18 states. I think theyve made it polarized and difcult to understand. The issue of accommodating religious opponents has already been a sticking point in legislative battles. In Rhode Island and Delaware, disputes over broader religious exemptions led to the failure of some same-sex union bills. Both states went on to approve civil unions in 2011, then same-sex marriage this year. In New York, gay marriage became law only after Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the states top two legislators struck an eleventh-hour compromise on religious exemptions. Still, advocates for stronger religious protections havent won anything close to what theyve sought in the 13 states and the District of Columbia where gay marriage has been recognized. A few states have approved specic religious exemptions related to housing or pre-marital counseling, or benets for workers in private, faith-based groups, such as the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal organization, according to analysis by Fretwell

other politically vulnerable groups are not required to pay that price. Advocates for the exemptions dont agree on where they should go from here. Nathan Diament, policy director for the Orthodox Union, which represents Orthodox Jewish congregations and has been a prominent voice on religious liberty issues, said his group hasnt taken a position on the religious rights of busi-

nesses or employers, but has advocated for broader religious exemptions for employees, such as a clerk who issues marriage licenses. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which in the last two years has made religious freedom a signature policy issue, believes any organization with faith objections, whether a for-prot corporation or a nonprot agency, should be exempt.

Abortion foes seek fetuses from seedy Pa. clinic

in May of rst-degree murder in the deaths of three babies prosecutors said were delivered alive and killed, and guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the drugoverdose death of a patient who had undergone an abortion. He was acquitted in the murder of a fourth baby. Prosecutors estimated Gosnell ended hundreds of pregnancies by inducing labor and cutting the babies spinal cords and caused scores of women to suffer infections and permanent internal injuries, but they said they couldnt prosecute more cases because he destroyed les. Gulino said his ofce does not release remains to unrelated third parties. He has assured Priests for Life, ProLife Coalition of Pennsylvania, Christian Defense Coalition and others that the remains will get a proper and respectful disposition. Michael McMonagle, president of the Pro-Life Coalition, said the groups will pay for the burials. Were doing this to try to bring dignity to their deaths, McMonagle told the Inquirer, adding that he thinks city ofcials dont want to appear theyre taking a side in abortion politics. To pressure the city, the groups have tried publicizing their offer. On July 19, they conducted a prayer vigil and protest at the medical examiners ofce in west Philadelphia. They hinted at suing, consulted lawyers and ultimately decided against it. Now, after unsuccessful dealings between their lawyer and a city lawyer for Gulino, the groups are returning to the street, with rallies planned for Sunday night at Drexel Universitys Bossone Research Center and for Monday morning outside the medical examiners ofce. Gulino spokesman James Garrow said abortion politics had nothing to do with not releasing the remains to the anti-abortion groups. Basically, were just following the protocols of our ofce, Garrow said. Among those disputing that claim is Catherine Glenn Foster, a lawyer for Alliance Defending Freedom, of Scottsdale, Ariz., which is backing the anti-abortion groups. Foster cited the FAQ section of the medical examiners website, which says: Anyone, including friends and neighbors, may claim a body three days after the date of pronouncement of death. In an Aug. 5 reply to Foster, Chief Deputy City Solicitor Lynda H. Moore wrote that the groups did not have legal standing to represent the citizens of Philadelphia. Garrow said the medical examiners ofce would hold unclaimed remains for 10 years, though they would be cremated once the staff exhausts efforts to nd relatives. After 10 years, Garrow said, cremated remains are buried at local cemeteries. Abortion foes have vowed to hold funerals for the fetuses even without their remains.

PHILADELPHIA The 47 fetuses discovered three years ago in a seedy Philadelphia abortion clinic dubbed a house of horrors are now part of a dispute over whether abortion foes can claim the remains for burial. An alliance of anti-abortion groups is pressing Philadelphia Medical Examiner Sam Gulino to give them the remains now that Dr. Kermit Gosnell is in jail and his clinic is closed, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Sunday. Gosnell, 72, was found guilty

2 years after Irene,Vermonts recovery nears end

Associated Press

WALLINGFORD, Vt. Two years after Tropical Storm Irene washed 10 acres of crops and an entire eld of top soil down a valley between the Vermont mountains, Evening Song Farm is distributing produce again. But it will be years, if ever, before the ground is productive again. Kara Fitzgerald and Ryan Wood-Beauchamp now grow their crops on a hillside about a mile away. The soil there is damp and not as good as the bottom land along the river, but with careful attention, over time, it can get better. Like thousands of Vermonters whose lives were forever changed by Irene, the 28-year-old vegetable farmers picked themselves up with help from strangers, a small amount of government assistance and a series of loans. And work. Hard, neverending work. In some ways we feel like the storm was yesterday. Our recovery is still full-on, Fitzgerald said one recent morning as she took a break from picking carrots. It was a real good opportunity to throw in the towel. Two summers after Irene dropped up to 11 inches of rain on parts of the Green Mountains, the state is nearing the end of its ofcial recovery. The state and federal governments have spent more than $565 million to help Vermont recover not including private donations and money people spent on their own and the nal bill is nowhere near ready to be counted. There are still hundreds

of people and businesses whose recovery is still in progress and some are still looking for permanent homes. Nevertheless, a series of celebrations and commemorations are planned for next week, starting on Wednesdays anniversary. It doesnt mean there isnt more work to do, said Gov. Peter Shumlin, who will visit the hard-hit community of Wilmington on Wednesday and eat chili at Dots, an iconic local restaurant all but destroyed by the storm but now a potent symbol of the towns resilience. Were going to make sure everybody gets the help they need and they will. When Irene roared up the coast, it killed at least 46 people in 13 states with a handful more in the Caribbean. Many in the Northeast breathed a sigh of relief when the New York City area was largely spared. But then the storm settled over the Green Mountains, and Irene became the biggest natural disaster to hit Vermont since an epic 1927 ood. Irene killed six in Vermont, left thousands homeless and damaged or destroyed more than 200 bridges and 500 miles of highway. Of the states 251 towns, 225 had infrastructure damage. Thirteen communities were cut off from the outside world after ooding washed out roads, electricity and telephone communication. National Guard helicopters spent days ferrying supplies to stranded residents. When the waters receded at last, the state created a cabinet-level position

to focus on recovery and opened nine long-term ofces to help residents. More than 150 cases remain open. Shumlin will stop in Waterbury on Thursday to talk about the state ofce complex, most of which was abandoned after the storm overowed the Winooski River. The state has a $124 million plan for the complex that is waiting for funding. Once housed in a leased building on the edge of the complex, the Hunger Mountain Childrens Center is getting ready to start its third school year in a church that was supposed to be a temporary space. Although the day cares previous home only had water in the basement, the building remains empty, caught up in planning. The center hopes to buy their old building and another next door so it can expand from its current enrollment of about 35 children, said business manager Amanda Olney.

As devastating as it was to have to move all of our stuff out of that building and into the church and transition there, if it works and we are able to go back and expand, it really has worked out for us, Olney said. Evening Song Farm was in just its rst season when Irene hit, forcing Fitzgerald and Wood-Beauchamp to evacuate. When they returned the next day, their house and barn were ne but a summers worth of crops was gone. We lost everything down there. We had taken out a lot of loans to start the rst farm. All our nancial ability was now down the river, Fitzgerald said. Within days theyd plowed up a fresh half-acre to plant garlic before the season ended and borrowed land to plant fast-growing greens for their customers. No one expected anything, but it was mostly for us to feel like we were still alive, Fitzgerald said. Fitzgerald and Wood-

Kara Fitzgerald stands last week at her new farm location in Shrewsbury, Vt. Two years after Irene washed away 10 acres of summer crops and topsoil, Evening Song Farm is back selling produce, thanks in part to borrowed money and borrowed land.

Beauchamp have since bought a neighboring plot. Theyre building a house, improving drainage and adding nutrients to the soil in hopes of better yields in future years. The eld that was washed away has been

partly restored, thanks to 40 tractor-trailer loads of recycled paper, sand and fertilizer. Perhaps one day it will produce hay or be a horse or cattle pasture, Fitzgerald said. But their recovery, despite being an inspira-

tion for many neighbors, remains daunting. Were sad, were exhausted, we dont feel whole, Fitzgerald said. Im looking forward to the day when Im farming and not recovering from Irene.

OBERLIN, Ohio An Oberlin College student acknowledged posting antiIslam iers and racist cards around the campus of the historically liberal Ohio university earlier this year, saying he meant them as a joke to provoke a reaction, according to statements he made after being detained by campus security. The student also took credit for the display of a large Nazi ag, which he also said he meant as a joke, and posting the face of Oberlins president onto a picture of Adolf Hitler, according to the statements contained in an Oberlin city police report. The student, detained after allegedly being seen posting anti-Islam iers in the colleges Science Center Feb. 27, denied involvement in other, earlier racist postings and said he was trying to show people had overreacted to them. The student, whose name was blacked out, said the people who put up earlier iers were just looking for attention. I put out these iers to get a similar over-reaction to prove this point, the student said, according to the report.

NEW YORK The authors of a new J.D. Salinger biography are claiming they have cracked one of publishings greatest mysteries: What The Catcher in the Rye novelist was working on during the last half century of his life. Starting between 2015 and 2020, a series of posthumous Salinger releases are planned, according to Salinger, co-written by David Shields and Shane Salerno and scheduled to be published Sept. 3. The Associated Press obtained an early copy. Salernos documentary on the author opens Sept. 6. In January, it will air on PBS as an installment of American Masters. Providing by far the most detailed report of previously unreleased material, the books authors cite two independent and separate sources who they say have documented and veried the information. One of the Salinger books would center on Catcher protagonist Holden Cauleld and his family, including a revised version of an early, unpublished story The Last and Best of the Peter Pans. Other volumes would draw on Salingers World War II years and his immersion in Eastern religion. A publication called The Family Glass would feature additional stories about the Glass family of Franny and Zooey and other Salinger works. Salinger does not identify a prospective publisher. Spokesman Terry Adams of Little, Brown and Company, which released Catcher and Salingers three other books, declined to comment Sunday. Salingers son, Matt Salinger, who helps run the authors literary estate, was not immediately available for comment. If the books do appear, they may well not be through Little, Brown. In the mid-1990s, Salinger agreed to allow a small Virginiabased press, Orchises, to issue his novella Hapworth 16, 1924, which rst appeared in The New Yorker in 1965. But after news leaked of the planned publication, Salinger changed his mind and Hapworth was canceled. No Salinger book came out after the early 1960s, as the author increasingly withdrew from public life. Over the past 50 years, there has been endless and conicting speculation over what Salinger had been doing during his self-imposed retirement. That Salinger continued to write is well documented. Friends, neighbors and family members all reported that Salinger was writing in his nal years and the author himself told The New York Times in 1974 that he wrote daily, though only for himself. There is a marvelous peace in not publishing, he said at the time. But there is no consensus on what he was writing and no physical evidence of what Salinger had reportedly stashed in a safe in his home in Cornish, N.H. The Salinger estate, run partly by Matt Salinger and Salingers widow, Colleen ONeill, has

remained silent on the subject since the authors death in January 2010. The two did not cooperate with Salerno and Shields. Until now, neither Salerno nor Shields has been dened by his expertise on Salinger. Salerno is a Hollywood screenwriter whose credits include Armageddon, the Oliver Stone lm Savages and a planned sequel to Salinger James Camerons blockbuster Avatar. Shields is an award-winning author whose books include the novel Dead Languages; a nonction work on pro basketball that was a National Book Critics Circle prize nalist; and Reality Hunger, a self-described manifesto for modern literature. Their 700-page Salinger biography has new information well beyond any possible posthumous ction. Nine years in the making and thoroughly documented, Salinger features many rare photographs and letters; unprecedented detail about the authors World War II years and brief rst marriage; a revelatory interview with the former teenage girl, Jean Miller, who inspired his classic story For Esme With Love and Squalor; and an account of how Salinger, who supposedly shunned Hollywood for much of his life, nearly agreed to allow Esme to be adapted into a feature lm. Salinger both eshes out and challenges aspects of the authors legend. He is portrayed as deeply traumatized by his war experiences and stunned by his post-Catcher fame. But he also comes off as far less reclusive and detached than long believed. He does agree to the occasional interview, even initiating discussion with The New York Times, and appears sensitive to his public image. His afnity for young people is not conned to his books, and Salingers biographers closely track his history of intense attachments to teens, from Oona ONeill in the 1940s to Joyce Maynard in the 1970s. The book is structured as an oral history, featuring hundreds of new and old interviews, excerpts from newspaper accounts and previous biographies and commentary from Shields and Salerno. Those quoted range from Salingers children to authors Tom Wolfe and Gore Vidal to Mark David Chapman, who cited Catcher as a reason he murdered John Lennon in 1980. Salerno has been promising to make headlines ever since announcing the biography and lm shortly after Salingers death. Earlier this year, he quickly arranged lucrative deals with the Weinstein Co. for a feature lm, the producers of American Masters for TV rights and Simon & Schuster for the book. The lmmaker himself has proved as effective as Salinger at keeping a secret, with only a handful of people even knowing of the projects existence during Salingers lifetime. Salerno spent some $2 million of his own money and traveled throughout the U.S. and Europe in search of material.

Deal lets U.N.Probe chemical weapon use

There seems to be some understanding between the United Nations and Damascus over the issue of inspections. After delaying tactics, both the parties concerned have agreed to go ahead to probe into the allegations that Syria used chemical agents against its people. The UN team. Irrespective of its outcome, the inspections will at least kick-start a dialogue process between the powers-that-be, and then gradually lead to broadening of understanding over issues of peace and security. Under an agreement reached with Damascus, the UN team will visit three sites and see for itself whether toxic agents were used or not. The mission that had disagreement over the scope of the investigation has now got the green signal, and is limited to reporting whether chemical weapons were used and which ones, but it will not determine responsibility for any attacks. Though half-hearted, it could be the way to go ahead. The 10-member investigating team has a responsibility to deliver and that shouldnt be restricted to just probing into a past event. The thrust of the mission should be to reach the real victims and expose the principal characters behind the usage of chemical agents, if any. This in no way in contravention to the agreed terms and conditions, but would be an apt way out to suggest measures to read the crises in its totality. Syrians have already witnessed 100,000 casualties since the uprising begun, and President Bashar Al Assad now sits on the mounds of the dead and destructed property. The war-torn country is far from being governed and it is no more than battleelds for rebels and pro-Assad forces. Damascus claim that it has nothing to hide is up for a litmus test.

Pervez Musharraf now no longer untouchable

Compared with the announcement in June in which the Pakistani prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, declared his governments intention to press charges against Pervez Musharraf for treason, Tuesdays court indictment against the former military ruler for murder in connection with the assassination of Benazir Bhutto is a sideshow. Few analysts believe there is hard evidence linking Musharraf to Bhuttos murder. The treason charges, if they materialize, are a different matter, as the legal case that he subverted the constitution when he imposed emergency rule in late 2007 is relatively easy to make. Musharraf already faces charges in four cases related to his rule. One way or another, it amounts to the same thing: putting a once untouchable general on trial. Pakistans powerful military did not support his return from exile in London. More importantly, the army, too, is about to have a new leader. In his forthcoming book, Getting Away With Murder, the man who led the UN investigation in Bhuttos assassination, Heraldo Muoz, describes the outgoing army chief, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, as a professional soldier of independent mind. Muoz said that the general expressed doubts to him about the claim by his former boss Musharraf that Bhutto had been assassinated by the Pakistani Taliban. He also spoke fondly of Bhutto, saying she had grown as a politician. All this further muddies the waters about who was really behind her assassination. Musharraf was ill-advised to return to Pakistan, where his political support has evaporated and where he spends his time under house arrest. Even with a new army chief and chief justice, Sharif will have to balance the demand to seek justice for emergency rule, with the needs of a military that remains the most powerful institution in the land. A presidential pardon for Musharraf, if convicted, could be one way out. Establishing the rule of law is going to take somewhat longer.

Antitrust case against airline industry

The tremendous growth in the airline industry that resulted from its full deregulation in 1985 was not unexpected. Alfred Kahn, an economist at Cornell University, predicted so in papers he wrote and in testimony he gave before Congress. He said if the Civil Aeronautics Board, (CAB), which had for many years regulated all aspects of the airline industry, were dismantled the public and the airlines themselves would benet. Kahns predictions came true. While there were causalities in deregulating the industry, such as Allegheny and Eastern Airlines, there were also tremendous benets due to the entry of low-cost carriers like Southwest and Jet Blue. Deregulation resulted in the lowering of fares and a signicant increase in the number of people able to y. Naysayers predictions that small airports, such as the ones that serve WilkesBarre, Pa., and Ithaca, N.Y., would be closed due to the lack of customers did not come true. Innovations, such as the hub-and-spoke system, where smaller regional carriers y passengers to hub cities for transfer to big-city destinations evolved rapidly. Airline passenger counts doubled and then doubled again. When asked if deregulation would result in the consolidation of airlines, Dr. Kahn suggested that the market would not allow that to happen. He also was quick to add, however, that the U.S. had passed a series of antitrust laws in the late 1890s that could be relied upon to protect consumers and smaller carriers alike from the vagaries of monopolies. It has been quite a while since the dismantling of the CAB began in 1977 under Kahns chairmanship. The agency closed its doors for good in 1985 and full deregulation of the airline industry was in full swing. Many airlines have come and gone since then. The price of airline tickets have diminished signicantly in real terms over the past 28 years and many more Americans are ying. Air travel is no longer a method of travel enjoyed only by the elite. It simply has become a mode of transportation for the masses. Congress and the courts have therefore Michael been standofsh about Macdowell imposing restrictions on airlines, particularly in the Contributing case of mergers. However, Columnist the Department of Justice recently led a lawsuit blocking the proposed $11 billion merger between US Airways and American Airlines, which is in bankruptcy. The reason: the deal would hurt consumers and lead to higher airfares and fees, the government is arguing. The merger, if successful, would create the worlds largest airline. The federal government concluded that American Airlines and US Airways compete directly on thousands of routes, representing business worth tens of billions of dollars in annual revenue. The new combined airline, the lawsuit alleges, would result in higher fares and less service to many airports and regions of the country. The Government Accountability Ofces (GAO) June report boosted the Antitrust Division of the Department of Commerces case. The GAOs study said the new merged airline would be the sole carrier on seven of 12 routes in which competition currently exists. It does not seem coincidental that the Justice Department, whose employees live mostly in-and-around Washington, D.C., and therefore would be hit the hardest by the proposed merger, led the suit. The proposed mega airline would become the dominant carrier at Reagan National Airport and would control 69 percent of the landing slots in our nations capital. Remember, it was our Congressmen and Congresswomen, who as a group probably y more than any other in the country, that recently amended the sequester legislation to assure that the furloughing of TSA gate inspectors would not hamper them and the traveling public in airports. Regardless of the impetus for the decision, American consumers received good news when federal Judge Sean Lane told lawyers for American Airlines he will not approve the companys planned merger with US Airways without seriously considering the merits of the governments case. The decision offers some hope that airfares will not rise signicantly due to the lack of competition and that other annoying fees placed on the traveling public by the airlines will be somewhat mitigated. Theres no doubt Kahn was correct. Left somewhat to its own devices, the market will create the optimal schedules and prices for airline passengers. Without some oversight directed at containing the tendency toward over consolidation, however, the airline industry will behave like other concentrated industries in the past. In the end, limited competition equals higher prices and fewer services. Michael A. MacDowell is a former economics professor, retired president of Misericordia University in Dallas, Pa., and managing director of the Calvin K. Kazanjian Economics Foundation.

Departure bodes ill

The reluctant pull-out Doctors Without Borders from Somalia after many hard, dangerous years there is a sign of the circumstances that prevail in that East African region. Doctors Without Borders is probably the hardiest and most non-political of the humanitarian groups. It is usually the rst in and the last out of world disaster areas, providing care in the most difcult of circumstances to the most miserable victims of sometimes savage conicts. Thus it has been in Somalia, where it has operated since 1991, when the government there collapsed. That area on the map divided, without coherent government, torn by inter-clan and religion-inspired ghting since 1991 has been the site of deadly ghting that has claimed up to 1.5 million lives and displaced another 2.3 million. Some international organizations, including the United Nations and the African Union, after having spent some $60 billion there, like to pretend that the current body seated


sometimes in Mogadishu, the capital, is gaining strength and support among Somalis. In fact, the area has at least three different governments in Mogadishu, in Puntland, and in Somaliland, with other, more local bodies ruling in other towns and areas of what used to be Somalia, making the claim it is coming back together after 22 years a wish or a joke. The body in Mogadishu depends on the presence of 18,000 foreign troops nanced from abroad. A Somali national army is being trained by foreign troops, but the general view is that the Mogadishu government would be forced to ee the countryif the foreign troops were withdrawn. Medecins Sans Frontieres is pulling out, not because it is no longer needed but because it does not feel it can continue to work there in safety. The decision to leave was made after violent attacks on the organizations staff members, who treated some 665,300 Somalis last year.

From page 1A Heights section of WilkesBarre, sat with a friend at a picnic table used 24 hours earlier as a makeshift police rendezvous point after reports of the shooting came in. Stahl and her friend reveled in the quiet hanging over the neighborhood. Sunday was the rst day in a week they had not heard gunre, Stahl said, explaining from the Sunday before and every day until Saturday, she heard gunshots. Other neighbors agreed that gunshots are nearly an everyday sound. I just hope something gets done about it, Stahl said. Maybe its gonna stop if they close it down for six months, she said referring to the citys recently passed ordinance that states rental units can be closed down for as much time in the wake of illegal activity. At a meeting Thursday, when City Council members unanimously approved the ordinance, council Chairman Bill Barrett said the same rule applies to any landlord, but city solicitor William E. Vinsko Jr. said what to do about Sherman Hills specically would have to be worked out among the council. The new city ordinance is set to take effect Sept. 1. On Saturday, city Mayor Tom Leighton expressed determintion to bring justice in the latest case of violence connected to the troubled housing complex. Those who committed this heinous and despicable act will be brought to justice, he said. No parent should ever face a day such as this. The escalating violence in our neighborhoods must end. I will use every power of my ofce to stop this senseless cycle of violence. Dantae Coleman, who was visiting friends near the complex, said on Sunday that she has a baby of her own and couldnt bear the thought if that happened to her own child. At the end of the day, theyre just babies, Coleman said. They should be able to watch TV and go out onto their patio without worrying about getting shot.

From page 1A any wounds. The eastern Ghouta area where the attack took place is under opposition-control, which makes arranging a trip across the front lines difcult. Rebels and the main Western-back opposition group have said they would guarantee access and the safety of a U.N. team to facilitate an investigation. Nesirky said the Syrian government afrmed that it will provide the necessary cooperation, including the observance of the cessation of hostilities at the locations related to the incident. He added that U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon would like to reiterate that all relevant parties equally share the responsibility of cooperating in urgently generating a safe environment for the mission to do its job efciently and providing all necessary information. The deal appears to meet the demands of the world powers, including the U.S., Britain, France and Russia, all of whom called on the Syrian government to cooperate with the U.N. and grant inspectors access to the sites. Conrming whether chemical weapons were indeed used carries enormous stakes, and could play a large role in determining the future course of Syrias civil war. It has reinvigorated debate about the possible use of foreign military action in the conict. Last week, France said that if an independent investigation conrms that chemical weapons were indeed employed, then military force could be used in Syria.

Several bodies are buried during a funeral in a suburb of Damascus, Syria. A senior U.S. administration official said Sunday that there is very little doubt that a chemical weapon was used by the Syrian regime against civilians in an incident that killed at least a hundred people last week.

From page 1A quality standards before it may be occupied. Granting an exception does not t where the city is heading and housing units are being held to higher standards to improve living quality, Smith said. Smith said council granted an exception to the Lenny Bruce House, a home for displaced women in the city, and its possible council members might do it for the Beacon House.
Funds available

Forbes said their mortgage provider pre-approved funds for the three old church buildings rectory, school and nunnery in addition to the former Staircase Lounge in neighboring Pittston Township, where they want to run a cafe and culinary school. Veterans could learn cooking skills while working for wages. Earlier this summer township ofcials denied their request to make the bypass building a Beacon House, saying the area is not zoned

for multi-unit housing. They would not consider an exception. A school does not t the zoning appropriation, either. An all-volunteer Beacon House staff helps former soldiers nd work after the military and offers job training, transportation to interviews and substance-abuse counseling. Verespy said most of the veterans who live at 25 Beacon Houses in South Dakota and New York stay at the recommendation of the Veterans Administration. Veterans may stay at Beacon Houses for up to two years. Verespy said some arrive with drug or alcohol problems, but the zero-tolerance policy and the fact that the veterans are at least 30 days sober makes for a safer environment.
Problems with Pa.

The coalition has been working with veterans for more than 30 years in the United States. Forbes, born in Australia, is president of the non-prot with national headquarters in Pittston Township. He

has been trying to build a Beacon House near its headquarters for more than 10 years but has hit opposition at every turn in the Wyoming Valley. The nonprot group also supports veterans in Australia. There are 23 Beacon Houses in New York and 2 in South Dakota where they help Native American veterans, but none in Pennsylvania. I think its a bloody disgrace for you to treat your veterans this way, said Forbes, a retired combat medic. Forbes was a soldier in the Australian Army. He served in South Korea during the Korean Conict. Why are they sending them to war if they dont want them when they are back? Forbes said. Forbes said, by so-called grandfather laws, his group should be able to have the place without making costly upgrades. Nuns and priests lived in the church buildings without the updates. But the buildings have been vacant for years and Pittston City Zoning Ofcer Smith said the grandfather rule does not

apply because the buildings purpose will change. Clergy used to live there, and Forbes is proposing to house needy veterans, which is not the same thing, Smith said. Forbes said his group is not giving a hand-out but rather a hand-up to veterans. Back in July, Verespy was under the impression the bypass property was safe for a culinary school. Its zoned B-2 commercial, which allows for a restaurant, but a place of education is not permitted there, said township Zoning Ofcer Terry Best. According to the zoning ordinance, an education center does not t the B-2 zoning guidelines. The municipal planning code, a state law, dictates how zoning exceptions are made, Smith said. To appeal, the coalition must rst apply to the zoning ofcer and get an imminent denial letter. The appeal ends up before the township planning commission, which will make a recommendation to the supervisors who ultimately make the decision.

The U.S. Navy has sent a fourth warship armed with ballistic missiles into the eastern Mediterranean Sea, closer to Syria, as President Barack Obama considers a military response. A senior administration ofcial said Sunday that the U.S. has very little doubt that chemical weapons were used in Wednesdays attack. The ofcial said the U.S. intelligence community based its assessment, which was given to the White House, on the reported number of victims, reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured and witness accounts. That appeared to align with French assessments as well. The U.S. ofcial spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter. In Paris, French President Francois Hollande said a body of evidence suggests that chemical weapons were used during Wednesdays attacks, and that Syrian President Bashar Assads regime was most likely

behind it. According to a statement Sunday from his ofce, Hollande said everything leads France to believe the regime was behind the attack. It didnt elaborate. The U.N. team that will carry out the investigation arrived in Syria last week to look into three earlier purported chemical attacks. The mission is led by Swedish expert Ake Sellstrom. Meanwhile, Syrian state TV said a car bomb killed the governor of the central province of Hama on Sunday. Anas Abdul Razaak Naem was assassinated in the Jarajima neighborhood of the city of Hama, the provincial capital, it said. No further details were immediately available. Assassinations of politicians, army ofcers and journalists who support President Bashar Assads regime are commonplace in Syrias civil war. At least 100,000 people have been killed in Syria since the countrys crisis began in March 2011.

Final Mass
From page 1A class pipe organ. Four Knights of Columbus Pittston Council, JFK Assembly, decked out in their ne regalia, swords glistening heralded the nal Mass. The common sounds of parents shushing children in the pews were heard just like during any other service, but the chanted prayers sounded a bit more melancholy as parishioners young and old said them one last time in their church. An old usher with misty eyes wiped his nose. Nodding his head, he agreed that the old Polish recitations spoken from the loft above sounded beautiful. In a Scripture reading, lector Walter Bednar read a passage from the book of Isaiah to the congregation of about 200 that the Lord will bring all his people together in one place, encouraging them that the bright and spacious sanctuary they were sad to leave is only a temporary stop, anyway.

From page 1A home to large gas processing operations. Some experts not involved with the ndings praised the general program but said the debate over fracking and health often neglects a crucial point. Theres a strong case that people in the U.S. are already leading longer lives as a consequence of the fracking revolution, said Michael Greenstone, a professor of environmental economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Thats because many power plants have stopped burning coal and switched to natural gas, which emits far less ne soot, nitrous oxide and sulfur dioxide. Obviously, that has to be counterbalanced against the local effects of the drilling, and that makes for a complicated decision, said Greenstone, formerly one of President Barack Obamas chief economic advisers. Obama has expressed strong support for the natural gas drilling boom and has said it can be done safely. Greenstone said more work needs to be done to conrm that Washington County residents were affected by natural gas activity and not by other factors, but he called the project an important start. The EHP group only counted cases where symptoms began after natural gas activity started, where there was a plausible source of exposure and where the individual didnt have an underlying medical condition that was likely to have caused the symptoms. Brown said the project team is aware more work needs to be done on links between natural gas activities and health impacts. He said the work has been a lot harder than I thought it was going to be, but theyve made substantial progress. The work is preliminary, but there are other independent signs of problems related to the gas industry in Washington County. John Poister, spokesman for the state Departmental of Environmental Protection, said last week that the agency has ordered natural gas company MarkWest Energy Partners to submit a pollution control plan for one plant and would like to see the improvements sooner rather than later. MarkWest environmental manager Nathan Wheldon said protecting the environment of communities is a top priority and that the company operations meet or exceed all applicable state and federal regulations. MarkWest, based in Denver, operates large natural gas facilities. A previous DEP report found some of the states highest levels of gas drilling air pollution in Washington County, including toxic compounds such as benzene, toluene and formaldehyde. Other gas drilling rms and companies operate in the area, too. Long-term exposure to benzene can affect the

immune system and cause cancer, while toluene can cause excessive sleepiness, confusion and, with longterm exposure, brain damage. Patrick Creighton, a spokesman for the Marcellus Shale Coalition, an energy industry group, said, Air quality across our region, and the nation, is sharply improving thanks to expanded natural gas use. Brown said one of the most worrying ndings was the extremely high levels of air pollution found inside two homes that are about 1,000 feet from a gas processing station. Western Pennsylvania tends to have high levels of air pollution, but the levels found in the two homes were up to four times higher than the local average. Brown said the group is collecting more data and pushing ahead to rene ways to advise people who Pete G. Wilcox/The Times Leader are worried about nearby The final Mass at St. Josephs Church in Wyoming was held on Sunday. Parishioners will attend Our natural gas activity. Lady of Sorrows.

Japan wins battle of Little League titans to claim crown

AP Sports Writer

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT Ryusei Hirooka lined a decisive two-run double in the bottom of the fth inning, Shunpei Takagi hit two solo home runs, and Tokyo beat Chula Vista, Calif., 6-4 on Sunday to win the Little League World Series. It was the 14th championship game for Japan, which was making its fourth straight appearance in the title game, and ninth championship. California, making its 23rd championship-game appearance, has won seven World Series titles. Giancarlo Cortez had a tworun single and Grant Holman an

RBI single for Chula Vista. Trailing 4-3 after Cortezs clutch single in the fourth, Japan tied it on Takagis second homer and won it when Hirooka lined a 2-2 pitch down the left-eld line for a double. Japan nished the tournament undefeated but had to rally to beat the Americans, who left 12 runners on base in a game that was there for the taking. Facing one last threat in the sixth, the Japanese players erupted in glee, tossing manager Masumi Omae in the air near the mound after his slick elders had turned a game-ending double play. Unbeaten, too, entering the

game, Chula Vista struck early to send a message that it would be a tense affair. Keyed by the shaggy-haired duo of Micah Pietila-Wiggs and Jake Espinoza at the top of the order, California scored twice in the top of the rst against Japan starter Kazuki Ishida to put the pressure on. Pietila-Wiggs was hit by a pitch leading off and Espinoza lined a double down the left-eld line. Pietila-Wiggs came around to score on a passed ball and Holman singled home Espinoza. California received a scare when Cortez was hit by a pitch in the helmet during the rst inning and departed for a pinchrunner after being examined on

the eld. Ishida went over to shake Cortezs hand and apologize, and Cortez returned to play his position when Chula Vista took the eld for the rst time. Holman, who pitched a nohitter earlier in the World Series, hadnt pitched since Wednesday and was shaky at the outset, walking two of the rst three batters he faced and throwing a wild pitch as Japan quickly mounted a threat of its own and tied the score.

Monarchs looking to build off strong end to 2012


When the football season ofcially opens for Kings College on Saturday, Sept. 7 it will mark the start of the fourth season for head coach Jeff Knarr. That means the players in the coachs rst recruiting class are now seniors, are familiar with the system and are carrying momentum from piling up 85 points in their last three games of 2012 after totaling just 98 in the rst seven games of the season. We always talk that the starting point is where you nish. If you want to get better you cant regress, Knarr said. Some of those things we executed we werent doing at the beginning of the year It does give them condence that they can have success in our conference and now with a year under their belts and working hard in the weight room were expecting bigger things from them. The Monarchs, who return eight starters on each side of the ball, nished last season with a 2-8 overall record and a 2-7 mark in the MAC, the most wins theyve had since 2009.

Yankees, A-Rod feud sparks 70s memories

AP Sports Writer

The core of the team returns on offense, including a trio of juniors in quarterback Tyler Hartranft, tailback Kyle McGrath and receiver Dan Kempa, who all had huge games against Wilkes in last years nale. Hartranft and Kempa each broke singlegame school records for passing yards (408) and completions (27) and receiving yards (237). McGrath, who was second-team All-MAC last season, nished just 40 yards

shy of becoming the schools rst 1,000-yard rusher since 2005. Joining those three as returning to starting posts are junior receiver Josh Sanders and sophomore offensive lineman Mark Vetterlein. Throw in three seniors in fullback and captain Slade Eigenmann, and lineman Kyle Grampp and Andrew Sandt and the Monarchs should have a lot of experience on the unit. Grampp was an honorable mention on the AllMAC squad in 2012. Although Eigenmann doesnt get many touches, he helps pave the way for McGrath to get huge chunks of yardage and Knarr said hes a leader for the team. Hes a great representative of what it means to be a student athlete, the coach said. How to balance academics and athletics. Hes there to make sure if a kid is having a bad day that hes up picking them up to encourage them and holds the whole thing together.

Kings running back Kyle McGrath takes the handoff from quarterback Tyler Hartranft during a recent practice at McCarthy Stadium. The duo will be counted on to keep momentum going for the teams offense.

Other players who are expected to be of importance to the unit are tailback Judens Goimbert, tight end Matt Richelmi, receiver Darren Mitchell and lineman Jim Strelecki.

NEW YORK Daily threats. Blaring headlines. Charges and countercharges. The New York Yankees have been there before. And Alex Rodriguez vs. Pinstripes is nothing like the bad ol days of Reggie Jackson vs. Billy Martin vs. George Steinbrenner. I dont even know where to start with you. It was just a different social time with my issues of speaking out, Jackson said this week. So to pick up the phone and compare it to the Bronx Zoo where it was when I played is such a lack of understanding. Mr. October is correct. For long-running soap opera, Rodriguez has a ways to go to match the Yankees of four decades ago, a tempest that prompted this observation from Graig Nettles: When I was a little boy I wanted to be a ballplayer and join the circus. With the Yankees Ive accomplished both. But for a two-month summer miniseries, A-Rod has made a quick impact and even helped boost ESPNs baseball coverage and the Yankees YES Network to their highest ratings this season. One could even call it Real Ballplayers of the Bronx. Thirteen other players accepted their drug suspensions quietly and are serving their penalties. Rodriguez appealed his See FEUD | 5B

Kenseth soaring into Chase after win

AP Auto Racing Writer

DENVER Peyton Manning isnt panicking. His supporting cast hasnt looked nearly as good as he has this summer. His offensive line has been a turnstile. His two young running backs cant hold onto the ball. His two trusted tight ends have combined for three catches and three injuries and the chemistry with his new slot receiver has been stalled by Wes Welkers sprained ankle. A rash of injuries on defense. Special teams breakdowns. All-Pro linebacker Von Millers six-game suspension that starts next week, which came on the heels of two executives getting

suspended for drunken driving arrests. Its enough to drive Broncos fans to regret putting money down on the Super Bowl favorites in Las Vegas. Manning isnt sounding any alarms, however. Id be a little concerned if we were a nished product and a nely oiled machine in the third preseason game, he said. I want to be a well-oiled machine toward the end of the season and peak at that point. The Broncos look a lot more like a creaky jalopy than a humming Ferrari right now.

BRISTOL, Tenn. Matt Kenseth had old tires, a sputtering gas tank and Kasey Kahne in his rearview mirror in the closing laps of a race for the third time this season. The result was the same as it was in Las Vegas, same as it was in Kansas. Kenseth won again. He held off Kahne on Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway the third time this season the two have gone 1-2 to reclaim some of the momentum that had escaped Kenseth of late. A strong start to the season had given Kenseth three wins in his rst 11 races with Joe Gibbs Racing, and win number four came six weeks later. But hed been in a slump of sorts heading into Bristol, with four nishes in the last six weeks of 15th or worse. The strong start followed by a minislump has made the year feel very choppy for Kenseth, who now has a Sprint Cup auto race Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway in Series best ve victories. See MANNING | 5B Bristol, Tenn. Kenseth won the race. I think if you look at the beginning of

the season, I think it was better than I ever could have dreamed of, Kenseth said. We were qualifying up front every week, we were leading tons of laps in position to win races. Sitting here in August, it feels like the year has been two years long with all the different things weve had happen to our race team. The last month and a half, two months has been, I hate to say reality check because I hope this is reality all the time, but weve struggled just a little bit more, havent quite had the speed. Its been a little bit more of a struggle. It didnt seem like a struggle Saturday night as Kenseth led a race-high 149 laps then held off Kahne over a white-knuckled push to the checkered ag. Kahne rst chased down Juan Pablo Montoya for second place, passing him with 17 laps to go before setting his sights on Kenseth. Although Kahne, winner of the spring race at Bristol, has two wins on the season, his place in the 12-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship eld isnt a See KENSETH | 5B

Steelers passing game takes step forward

Gerry Dulac Pittsburgh Post-Gazette PITTSBURGHQuarterback Ben Roethlisberger joked after the second preseason game against the Washington Redskins that he was saving his touchdowns for the regular season. The proclamation came after the rst-team offense failed to score a touchdown for the second game in a row. Well, the Steelers rst-team offense didnt exactly light up the scoreboard Saturday night at Heinz Field in a 26-20 overtime defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs. But Roethlisberger made sure to put some snap back in the attack by throwing deep, getting Antonio Brown involved and, yes, nally producing a touchdown. The rst two games we tried to set the tone by running the ball, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders said. The game plan was to come in and be more balanced, having a balanced attack. Indeed, the Steelers game-planned for the rst time in the preseason and it was apparent what they wanted to do test their passing game, often by going deep against the Chiefs man coverage. And it showed. Roethlisberger completed 13 of 19 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown in the rst half. Bruce Gradkowski played the entire second half and passed for 115 yards and a touchdown. This week was the week we were able to take it a little bit more and make some plays, said receiver Jericho Cotchery, who had two catches for 32 yards. Weve been working hard in practice, just like weve been working pretty hard on the running game, and we brought it to the game this week. OK, the rst touchdown came on a busted play in which Roethlisberger did what he does best elude the pressure of linebacker Tamba Hali and throw a 13-yard pass to running back Jonathan Dwyer, who was wide open in the right at. But there were a number of other highlights to at least satisfy Roethlisberger and his receiving mates, including a 49-yard pass to Brown, their top receiver, on their second play of the game. Even the head coach was satised.. Were a juggling catch away from it being a very productive half offensively, coach Mike Tomlin said. The reference was to a catch that Sanders appeared to make for a 34-yard touchdown down the right sideline, a play that would have given the Steelers a 17-3 lead. But Sanders bobbled the ball as he was falling to the turf near the pylon and didnt have full possession until he rolled out of bounds. Im extremely satised, Sanders said, referring to the offense. I just wish I could have topped it off. Still, Tomlin saw enough from his rst-team offense to convince him that sitting Roethlisberger and a couple of other key offensive performers for the preseason nale Thursday night in Carolina is a good idea. I like the direction this offense is going, even though were 0-3, said Sanders, who had only one catch for 24 yards. Im extremely optimistic were going to be very good. It had been a mostly quiet preseason for Brown, who takes over as the No. 1 receiver with the departure of Mike Wallace. Brown had just three catches for 35 yards in the rst two games, but he more than matched that production in the rst half when he caught three passes for 61 yards. The big one was a 49-yarder down the left side that set up Shaun Suishams rst eld goal. We did some things, developed some things, and got better, Brown said. I think we did some great things. We denitely got better in that regard.

Even Gradkowski provided some aerial punch, throwing a perfect pass to rookie receiver Markus Wheaton for a 34-yard touchdown in the third quarter. That throw atoned for the misre on a deep pass to Sanders on the previous series when Gradkowski failed to lead Sanders, who was running a post, to the middle of the eld. Nonetheless, the deep passes were a part of a game plan to open up the offense and attack downeld something that had been missing in the previous two games. We have a lot of talent on this offense, Gradkowski said. It was another stepping-stone toward the regular season.

Sanchez hurt in Jets 24-21 Bills QB Kevin Kolb has concussion-like symptoms OT win over Giants
The Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Rookie Geno Smith may end up being the Jets No. 1 quarterback by default. After shaky performance in his rst NFL start, Smith might have backed into the starting job Saturday night when Mark Sanchez hurt his right shoulder late in the fourth quarter in a 24-21 overtime win over the Giants. Jets coach Rex Ryan refused to disclose the nature of Sanchezs injury after the annual game for the bragging rights of New York. Sanchez (5 of 6 for 72 yards and a fumble) lay on the turf for about a minute after being hit by defensive tackle Marvin Austin seconds after completing a 23-yard pass to Mohamed Massaquoi. The Jets starter since 2009, Sanchez tried to throw a practice pass on the sideline, but he shook his head after making one short toss possibly a shake-off that gives Smith (16 of 32 for 199 and three interceptions) the starting job. Sanchez had an X-ray of the shoulder and will have an MRI on Sunday. He left the stadium right after the game and was not available for comment, but his clothes remained hanging in his locker. Were going to compete all the way through, Ryan said when asked whether Smith was his No. 1 at this point. From Day 1 I said we will make the announcement on the starting quarterback when we think its the appropriate time Billy Cundiff won the game with a 32-yard eld goal with 8:04 left in overtime. His rst attempt from 40 yards missed, but Giants coach Tom Coughlin had called time out. The Jets ran two plays and Cundiff was good the second time. Its the only time the rivals will meet this year unless they qualify for the cold-weather Super Bowl here in February.

The way the Jets and Giants played, its highly unlikely. The story was the Jets quarterbacks. Smith struggled, and then Sanchez got hurt, putting his status is suddenly in question two weeks before the season opener. The only guy who looked good for the Jets was Matt Simms. The quarterback situation has been the No. 1 question mark for Ryans team since training camp opened. If Smith is the guy, he didnt look ready for prime time on Saturday. As long as Rex and the committee are evaluating us, I think I have a shot, said Smith, who stepped out of the end zone in the fourth quarter and gave the Giants a safety. As I stated, I dont think one game, one practice or one day will tell you the type of quarterback I am. Simms, the son of former Giants quarterback Phil Simms, looked good in mop-up action. He was 6 of 10 for 120 yards, hooking up with Ryan Spadola on a 70-yard pass play to set up the winning eld goal. The Jets blew a chance to end the game earlier in overtime when Nick Folk was wide right on a 39-yarder shortly after DaRel Scott lost a fumble. Smith showed his potential when he threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Ben Obomanu on the Jets second possession, and led a 57-yard drive against the Giants backups in the third quarter that gave the Jets a lead. Bilal Powell capped that drive with a 2-yard run. David Wilson provided the highlight for the Giants. The second-year running back took a handoff from Eli Manning (8 of 20 for 83 yards) on the Giants rst possession and used a block by Hakeem Nicks to sprint 84 yards down the left sideline. Thats what he gives this team, the opportunity to hit some big plays, said Manning, who was 8 of 20 for 83 yards. Hes an explosive back with a lot of speed, and when he gets an opening he can make things happen. After Sanchez was hurt, Simms took over. Following a short punt by Steve Weatherford that gave the Jets the ball at the Giants 37, Simms threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Spadola for a 21-18 lead. Curtis Painter played the second half and OT in a bid to replace David Carr as Mannings backup. He led a 10-play, 64-yard drive that tied the game on Joshs Browns fourth eld goal, a 40-yarder with 37 seconds to play. Browns other eld goals covered 40, 33 and 50 yards. First-half interceptions by Prince Amukamara and Stevie Brown on a play in which he sprained his left knee gave the Giants the ball inside Jets territory. Brown hit a 40-yarder after Browns pick, but the offense never looked cohesive. Its something well work on, see whats holding us back, what adjustment we need to make, Manning said. The Giants best drive came late in the half. Manning sandwiched passes of 20 yards to Jerrel Jernigan and 34 to Nicks around a 23-yard pass interference penalty against Kyle Wilson to get a rst-and-goal at the Jets 4. Three plays netted 2 yards and Mannings fourth-down pass to Nicks was broken up by Dawan Landy.

LANDOVER, Md. Buffalo quarterback Kevin Kolb was treated for concussion-like symptoms after getting kneed in the back of the helmet in the Bills preseason game Saturday against the Washington Redskins. Kolb was hurt at the end of an 8-yard scramble in the rst quarter. He remained in the game for four more plays, until the drive ended with a 2-yard touchdown run by C.J. Spiller. Washington won 30-7. Kolb has been competing for the starting job with rst-round pick EJ Manuel, but Manuel hurt his left knee in the Bills previous game and is out for the rest of the preseason. Kolb was 2 for 4 for 16 yards and had two runs for 12 yards Saturday when he left the game. With both Manuel and Kolb hurt, undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel became the only healthy quarterback on the roster. Tuel entered the game on the next series.

Kolb has suffered at least two concussions over six NFL seasons. Selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2007 draft, he lost the starting job to Michael Vick when he was sidelined by a concussion in the season opener in 2010. Kolb spent the past two seasons in Arizona, where he failed to secure the starting job because of an assortment of injuries, including a concussion in 2011. He switched to a new helmet the following year, one meant to gives addition protection to the back of his head. The Bills also had two defensive backs leave with injuries in the rst half. DaNorris Searcy, who started at safety in place of Jairus Byrd, suffered a head injury. Starting cornerback Stephon Gillmore had a wrist injury. Byrd was on the sideline but did not suit up. The two-time Pro Bowl safety joined the team this week after signing a oneyear, $6.9 million franchise player tender, having missed all of the offseason practices and training camp.

Pryor, Flynn competing for Raiders starter QB role

AP Sports Writer

ALAMEDA, Calif. Terrelle Pryor will likely get some work running the Oakland Raiders rstteam offense in practice this week following an impressive preseason performance. Whether he can win the starting quarterback job remains to be seen. Coach Dennis Allen said Saturday the quarterback competition remains open one day after Pryor completely outplayed Matt Flynn in a 34-26 exhibition loss to the Chicago Bears. Allen has said the main criteria for picking the starter will be who gives the offense a better chance to score. Right now that is decidedly in Pryors favor after he led four scoring drives and provided a spark that energized the Oakland Coliseum crowd and created a quarterback controversy with two weeks left before the start of the regular season. Terrelle came in and really added a spark to us offensively, Allen said. He moved us down the eld, he was able to put some points on the board, so that was really good to see out of him. I dont think Matt played as well as he or we would have liked for him to play. Again, we got to continue to get better, we got to keep moving forward and thats a position that were still continuing to evaluate. While Flynn has faced tougher competition

as the starter going up against mostly starting defenses and Pryor has beneted from a few short elds after turnovers, the difference in production between the two quarterbacks this preseason has been stark. Flynn has played 13 drives over three games and has turned the ball over more than he has scored with a lost fumble in the opener and two interceptions against the Bears compared to one eld goal drive against Dallas and an end-of-half touchdown in New Orleans. The Raiders have averaged 3.7 yards per play with Flynn at quarterback. Oakland has scored on more than half of Pryors 10 drives this preseason with two touchdowns and four eld goals compared to just one turnover on an end-zone interception on Pryors rst drive of the preseason. The offense is averaging 5.7 yards per play with Pryor in the game. Pryor learned from that mistake when he threw a ball into coverage instead of running and played his best football as a pro in ve drives against the Bears. Every day I just want to get 1 percent better thats my key, he said. All I want to do is get better. I have a love and a passion for this game that is amazing, its incredible. I love this game more than anything. I just want to get better every day. The Raiders opened camp saying there would be a competition at all positions, including quarterback. But actions showed that Flynn was clearly

HOUSTON Houstons Andre Johnson had 131 yards receiving before halftime in his rst extended work of the preseason Sunday, and New Orleans backups scored two touchdowns in the second half to help the Saints rally for a 31-23 victory. Johnson didnt play in the preseason opener and had less than a quarter of work last week. On Sunday, he grabbed seven of the eight passes thrown

to him, highlighted by a 39-yard reception. Matt Schaub threw for 213 yards for Houston (2-1), and Ben Tate had 74 yards rushing and a score lling in for Arian Foster. Drew Brees threw for 104 yards and a touchdown for New Orleans (3-0) before sitting out after the third possession. With Marques Colston still out with a left foot injury, rookie fth-round pick Kenny Stills continued to impress with 54 yards receiving and a touchdown.

Scott holds off ailing Tiger for win

The Associated Press

JERSEY CITY, N.J. Masters champion Adam Scott won The Barclays on Sunday after everyone around him did their best to lose it. Scott played bogey-free at Liberty National, making only two birdies on the back nine for a 5-under 66 that put him in the mix of a crowded leaderboard at the top. Turns out he was the only one who stayed there. I cant believe it, to be honest, Scott said after winning the FedEx Cup playoffs opener. I just played a good round today and I came in and really didnt think it had a chance. But obviously, things went my

way a lot out there. Justin Rose had a 25-foot birdie putt for the lead, ran it 5 feet by the cup and three-putted for a bogey for a 68. Kevin Chappell had a two-shot lead through 10 holes, only to play the next seven holes in 7-over par to close with a 76. Tiger Woods suffered a back spasm on the par-5 13th hole and hooked a fairway metal so far left that it landed in a swamp on the other side of the 15th fairway, leading to bogey. He dropped another shot on the 15th, and then gamely birdied the 16th and 17th holes to pull within one shot of Scott. Woods putt from the back of the 18th green was one turn short of falling to force a

playoff. The last challenge came from Gary Woodland, who fell out of the lead when he hit driver on the 13th that ran into the water, leading to bogey. Woodland had birdie chances from inside 10 feet on the nal three holes, and missed them all. He closed with a 73. I found a way to hang in there and grind it out and gave myself a chance on the back nine on Sunday, which is everything you can ask for, Woodland said. Scott nished at 11-under 273 and moved to a careerbest No. 2 in the world. It was the second time Woods has missed a playoff by one shot at Liberty National.

EDMONTON, Alberta Teen star Lydia Ko ran away with the Canadian Womens Open again. The 16-year-old New Zealand amateur successfully defend her title Sunday, closing with a 6-under 64 on Sunday at Royal Mayfair for a ve-stroke victory and her fourth win in professional events. Last year at Vancouver Golf Club in British Columbia, the South Korean-born Ko became the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history at 15 years, 4 months. She also was the fth amateur winner in tour history and the rst since JoAnne Carner in the 1969 Burdines Invitational.

Kos other victories in professional events came last year in the Australian tours New South Wales Open and this year in the Ladies European Tours New Zealand Womens

Open. Ko had a 15-under 265 total after opening with rounds of 65, 69 and 67. Shes projected to jump from 19th to seventh in the world ranking.

Tyler hartranft, the Monarchs quarterback can beat teams by running or throwing.

From page 1B started in 2012 alongside the aforementioned, had a brilliant campaign piling up 71 tackles, 10 for a loss, four sacks and two forced fumbles. Nick Kaijala and Ben Ray will take on the full-time role at backers for the Monarchs after seeing plenty of playing time last season lling in to make the transition easier. Ksiazkiewicz and fellow senior returning starter Ron Garrett were selected as team captains. Garrett, a defensive end who has suffered through injuries the last few seasons, is returning for his fth season of eligibility.

Up front Garrett is joined by Pete Santorelli and Billy Beinke, who started last season. In the secondary, junior Kris Matthews who led the team in tackles last year and sophomores Tyler Cruz and Tyler Struckus return as starters. Kings also welcomes a new coordinator in Kory David, who was with the Philadelphia Eagles the last two seasons as a linebacker and special teams coach. Hes also used to coaching on the college level making stops at Cortland and Dickinson. Its been a seamless transition because Kory brings the NFL experience and organization and how they get things done, Knarr said. He spent

time in the NFL but also understands the demands on Division III student-athletes and how to relate to them.

With plenty of experience returning in 2013, its key for the Monarchs to minimize the mistakes they have been making in Knarrs rst three seasons. It may seem like minimal miscues, but those are the things that have made huge differences, especially in several close games. The opportunity is there for Kings to excel this season and not only get more wins for the coach, but it has the potential to surprise teams and contend for the league championship if everything comes together. Espinoza threw out Gomi at home. The West champions mounted another threat in the second, loading the bases with two outs. But Holman struck out, waving his bat ever-so-slightly at a pitch that was low and outside and shaking his head in dismay at the call. If Japan had a plan, it likely was to make the hard-throwing Holman work, and the tall righthander did just that. When he Broncos. So, there is a lot of newness to this team. In some ways, its just like 2012, when Manning was getting used to just about everybody around him and needing the GPS to keep from getting lost on his way to and from work and home. I think, similar to last year, our goal is to improve throughout the season, Manning said. By no means should we be a well-oiled machine going into our opener against Baltimore. Hopefully, we can be hitting on enough cylinders where we can be effective. Denver lost three of its rst ve games last season before Now with a chance to right all those wrongs in front of him, he stalked Kenseth for at least a dozen laps around Bristol. Whatever happened was out of Kenseths control. It was all about the windshield. I never even looked back, he said. The thing is, you cant race any different. If someone decides to run into the back of you or whatever, its going to happen. There wasnt really anything I could do differently to guard against anything or change my line or take his away because there was only one lane where my car ran good,

PAWTUCKET, R.I. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre will not have a winning record for the rst time since becoming a Yankees afliate in 2007. Thats because the RailRiders fell to Pawtucket 6-5 on Sunday night at McCoy Stadium to fall to 64-72. The best the RailRiders can nish this season is at the .500 mark. With the loss, it was made ofcial that Red Sox SWB will not repeat at International League North RailRiders Division champions as the team was eliminated from that race. With a loss today at Pawtucket or a win by Rochester, the RailRiders will also be ousted from the Wild Card race. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre busted out of the gate early on Sunday, logging ve runs in the rst four innings. Dan Johnson laced an RBI-double to right eld in the top of the rst, while Bobby Wilson added a tworun homer in the top of the second.

After a walk with the bases loaded and a elders choice, the RailRiders had a 5-1 advantage heading into the bottom of the fourth.

Brock Holt broke the tie in the bottom of the seventh with a solo-shot.

Manning settled in and turned the Broncos back into a powerhouse, albeit one that lost its rst playoff game to the Ravens, something he said left a scar on the teams psyche. The only salve for that wound is a Super Bowl title this season. Welker, Tom Bradys favorite target in New England, bolted to the Broncos in free agency, teaming with young receivers Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, who combined for 23 TD catches last season, to form a new Three Amigos in Denver and prompting John Elway to declare hes jealous of Mannings targets. so I just really had to look out the windshield and try to hit the marks the best I could.

From page 1B 211-game ban, then appealed to fans in a public-relations battle against the Yankees and Major League Baseball. The sniping began June 25, when Rodriguez tweeted that his surgeon, Dr. Brian Kelly, gave him the go-ahead to play injury rehabilitation games. Feeling the third baseman was challenging the teams authority to set the schedule for his return, general manager Brian Cashman told ESPN Alex should just shut up, underlining his comment with a profanity. That was just the start. Two months later, Cashman and Rodriguez wont even have a substantive conversation without lawyers. Rodriguez challenged the teams diagnosis of his quadriceps injury, retaining a doctor to say he wasnt hurt even though the physician never examined him and gave his opinion solely on the basis of a scan. He twice went on WFAN radio, intimated that Yankees President Randy Levine and Major League Baseball were in cahoots to keep him off the eld and hired a blustery attorney to go on national television and accuse the team physician of misdiagnosing his hip injury Makes the conicts of 1970s seem downright pedestrian. This is uncharted territory. That was baseball. Whether you liked it or not, it was all about winning and what it took to win, longtime Yankees broadcaster Suzyn Waldman said. George and Billy fought because Billy didnt win or Billy did win. Or Reggie and Billy fought. It was always baseball. Nobody signed up for this.

From page 1B Baltimore, few starters gure to play much in the preseason nale Thursday night against Arizona, meaning Mannings preseason is over. I dont think you can get every question answered in the preseason, Manning said. We have some young players, we have some rst-year starters, potentially at tight end, and were going to have a young running back. Montee Ball is going to play a lot. We have a rst-year center, and a rst-year slot receiver with the Denver

HuskersRodriguez hopes to make up for lost time

AP College Football Writer


LINCOLN, Neb. Andrew Rodriguez has had his patience tested at Nebraska. The offensive lineman showed up in 2010 as one of the Cornhuskers most celebrated recruits. He came out of 2012 wondering if he would ever fulll the expectations that followed him to Lincoln. Its the worst feeling when youre told you have all this potential and its not coming out, he said. It eats away at you. Is it my effort? What is it? Once you gure it out, you start to see the positive things coming out. Its smooth sailing from here. Coaches and teammates say Rodriguez, a self-described introvert, has exuded condence in preseason practices. Asked about that, Rodriguez said its the result of his gaining a rm grasp of the no-huddle offense and developing the endurance needed to stay on the eld for more than a couple of plays at a time. When the 18th-ranked Huskers open against Wyoming on Saturday, the 6-foot-6, 330-pound Rodriguez is projected to be their starting right tackle. This has been his best camp, coach Bo Pelini said, and hes probably playing the best football hes ever played right now, which Im pretty excited about. Rodriguez appeared in every game last season, starting one but generally working as the third tackle in a three-man rotation. After Nebraskas loss to Georgia in the Capital One Bowl, offensive line coach John Garrison told Rodriguez it was time for him to show everyone why he was a four-star recruit coming out of Aurora (Neb.) High. It would be really disappointing for me, as a coach, to have that talent and that potential and to throw it aside, Garrison said. Its time for me to take the poke and poke him in the side and get him going. Thats what Ive done. Rodriguez has had obstacles. A foot injury sidelined him the

second half of his sophomore season, and he had to adjust to the move from guard to tackle before last season. At the same time, the Huskers were transitioning in earnest to their hurry-up offense, and Rodriguezs conditioning was lacking. A bigger guy like that, if youre not used to it, Garrison said. Though Rodriguezs understanding of angles and other nuances of line play has improved, Garrison said, he remains relatively inexperienced in the sport. Rodriguez moved from New York City to Aurora (pop. 4,400) when he was 13. Family circumstances necessitated that he be

taken in by his half-brother and sister-in-law in the town an hour west of Lincoln on Interstate 80. Rodriguez had never played football before his arrival but was encouraged to do so because of his mammoth build. Andrew came in to the elementary school with a big Afro and a comb in his hair. He was a fellow that did not go unseen, Aurora coach Randy Huebert wrote in an email. He started coming to the kids football camp we had and he seemed to like the sport. Andrew also excelled in the weight room and became a steady worker, which really helped him develop. Off the eld, there was considerable culture shock. Understandably, he was unfamiliar with the ways of Nebraskans. Huebert recalled that when the team went out for dinner his freshman year, Rodriguez needed a tutorial on the differences between ordering a steak rare, medium or well. Rodriguez dominated on the offensive and defensive lines in the small-school ranks because of his size and brute strength. He was listed as the top prospect in the state and one of the 25 best offensive tackles in the country. Not surprised on Andrew taking some time to blossom, Huebert wrote. He has always had the physical tools, but only a portion of athletes have gone through a life like Andrew had growing up (prior to coming to Aurora). Rodriguez working his way to the top of the depth chart is no small feat, given that Nebraska has its most experienced offensive line in Pelinis six seasons. Rodriguez said Garrisons challenge after the bowl game made him realize time is running out on his college career. He increased the amount of time he spent in lm study during the off-season, and he dedicated himself to improving physically so he can stay on the eld for longer stretches. Its my last year. I have nothing to lose, honestly, he said. The last year I can just have fun with the seniors, with my teammates I came in with and have fun playing the game you love.

HASHMONAIM, West Bank Nate Fish is excited. Things are off to a good start at this Baseball for Beginners practice, where 11 young Israeli boys are putting on mitts and pulling baseball caps over knitted yarmulkes.

All right, now weve got everybody in the dugout like a real team! he yells. Then he turns around to look at the diamond that his players have helped set up, and his voice drops. Home plate is backwards, guys, he says.

In sports-mad Israel, where basketball and soccer are hugely popular, baseball is still mostly a curiosity for kids like these. Fish, a former minor leaguer who played alongside with Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis in college, is trying to change that. On Aug. 1, he became the rst paid full-time national director of the Israel Association of Baseball, which is making a major new push to expand the reach of the sport beyond its base of American expats and their children.

We have to change the identity of baseball in Israel a little bit, Fish said. We have to make it cool and we have to make it exciting and athletic. Fish, a youthful 33-yearold third baseman from Shaker Heights, Ohio, ts the part. In his blog, part travelogue and part absurdist comedy, he styles himself the King of All Jewish Baseball. He arrives at the practice in workout gear and runs around the eld like a high school coach, yelling instructions and keeping the kids moving

from drill to drill. He wants them active, engaged and, in the brutal summer heat, sweating. The misconception is that baseball is slow and that baseball is boring. Baseball is fast, Fish said. For anyone who thinks baseball is boring, put them in the batters box and zip a 95 mph fastball past them and see if theyre still bored. Fishs recent clinic,

held in this Jewish settlement outside of Jerusalem, showed just how far he has to go. Misthrown balls ew around the unmowed eld, whose track is ringed with a concrete barrier thats more health hazard than warning. One boy who thought hed hit an inside-the-park home run thanks to several elding errors celebrated until Fish delivered some bad news: He was out, having missed every base.

Spacey: TV must adapt or die

Associated Press





LONDON Oscarwinning actor Kevin Spacey says television has overtaken cinema as the home of quality characterdriven drama, but the industry risks failure if it doesnt recognize that viewers want control over what they watch and when. Spacey told the Edinburgh International Television Festival on Thursday that the success of his political thriller House of Cards, released in a single burst of 13 episodes on video streaming service Netix earlier this year, showed that viewers want freedom. If they want to binge, as theyve been doing on House Of Cards, then we should let them binge, he said. Spacey is the rst actor invited to deliver the festivals keynote speech. He attributed the invitation to the success of House of Cards innovative distribution model and televisions

creative renaissance. Frankly, 15 years ago I wouldnt have been up here lecturing you because my agent would never have allowed me to even consider being on a television series after winning an Oscar, said Spacey, who won Academy Awards for performances in The Usual

Suspects and American Beauty. He said shows like The Wire, Dexter and Breaking Bad proved television had taken over from the movies in terms of sophisticated storytelling, but he argued that that this golden age was at risk if the industry did not

respond to the ways new technology, the Internet and social media had changed viewing patterns. We no longer live in a world of appointment viewing, he said. So the water cooler has gone virtual, because the discussion is now online. Studios and networks

who ignore either shift whether the increasing sophistication of storytelling or the constantly shifting sands of technological advancement will be left behind, he added. Spacey said the critical and commercial success of House of Cards demonstrated that we have learned the lesson that the music industry didnt learn: give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in, at a reasonable price, and theyll more likely pay for it rather than steal it. At another event at the festival, Spacey said movie producers could adopt a similar approach to help beat piracy, releasing lms simultaneously online, in cinemas and on DVD. Spacey said that would be a huge bite out of piracy because if its all available nobody is going to be stealing it before someone else gets it. Spacey is currently lming a second series of House of Cards, on which he is an executive producer.

Museums retrace March on Washington 50 years later

Associated Press

WASHINGTON Numerous exhibits and programs in the nations capital will allow visitors to retrace the historic steps of the 1963 March on Washington 50 years later. Several museums and cultural organizations have organized artifacts and art exhibits for visitors to

learn about the march, the nations conict over civil rights and the tumult leading up to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.s famous I Have a Dream speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. At the Newseum, curators focused on the unique role of students in helping to lead the civil rights movement in the early 1960s.

The museum about journalism and the First Amendment features a section of the original Woolworths lunch counter from Greensboro, N.C., where four black college students launched a sit-in after being denied service because of their race. A short video documentary highlights some of the key players and moments of the era.

Unlike the Smithsonian or elsewhere, we are looking at history through the lens of the First Amendment, said Newseum video producer Frank Bond. That led curators beyond the role of journalists to also look at student leaders who fought for civil rights. The free press, yes, covered their exploits, Bond said. But it was

speech and assembly that they took upon themselves as constitutional rights to ght what they felt was an unjust system, which was the Jim Crow system of segregation.

Womans weekend lover is not about to make a full-time commitment

Dear Abby: I am a divorced woman in my mid-40s. I started dating again about two years ago, and shortly after, I met Jed. We have been seeing each other for more than a year, and Id like some sort of commitment. I have tried talking to him about it. All hell say is, Were committed and monogamous and thats enough, so dont start with me. We spend Thursday through Sunday together. Jed says Monday through Wednesday is his time to be alone. We dont talk or see each other during that time. We may email or text, but Im not allowed to go to his house or call him. I have told him

I dont want to still be packing for weekend trips to his house its 10 minutes away when Im 80. I also never know how Jed feels about me. He never tells me he loves me, and if I say it, hell say it back very quickly like its an inconvenience. He doesnt compliment me or act like Im important to him at all. Im financially stable but would have a better lifestyle if I could share the bills with someone. Marriage is not important, and I have explained that to him, but I want a full-time commitment. Am I wasting my time? Times A-Wastin in Georgia

Dear Times A-Wastin: Do you realize that not once in your letter did you mention anything POSITIVE Jed does for you? He has told you directly this is as committed as hes willing to get. Men who love women dont forbid them from coming to their home or calling; in fact, they WELCOME them. Jed doesnt say I love you unless he is cornered because it appears he DOESNT love you. Yes, youre wasting your time. If you want someone to share living expenses so you can enjoy a better lifestyle, find yourself a roommate. Dear Abby: I have been married for 29 years and Im having concerns about my husband. Im not sure what to make of the fact that he is becoming effeminate.

For many years he has shaved his underarms, legs, etc., to the point that he is completely hairless. He recently lost some weight and is joining a gym. He wears womens stretch tights and a girdle to work out, because he says it helps him sweat around his middle. He is also very concerned about exfoliating. He says these things shouldnt bother me, but they do. I dont know what to make of it, and when I try to talk to him about my concerns, he blows me off. Do other men do this kind of stuff? Ive only been with him, so I dont know. Can you give me another perspective? A Little Worried in Wisconsin Dear Worried: These days some men wax, shave, moisturize and exfoli-

ate their bodies. Your husband may wear tights at the gym because he looks around and sees younger men with sleeker physiques and hes selfconscious about his own. If hes not getting strange looks from others working out there, his attire may not be that unusual. Its important that couples, particularly those who have been married as long as you two have, be able to talk to each other. Because some of this is a recent change in your husbands behavior, you deserve an explanation.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Is thunder a momentary scare or a warning of whats to come? You wont regret it if you follow your instinct to overreact in this case. It will be better than underreacting. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Youll be drawn to quirky personalities because you correctly sense that these types have special gifts and/or knowledge that will be helpful to you a little farther down the line. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Repentance will be a theme. Its not that youve done anything so terrible, but acknowledging that youd like to do better will improve your lot. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The restless stir that drives todays action is a sneaking suspicion that a move in any direction at all will land you in a place thats better than where you currently stand. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Neither, it will seem, can two people if those two people are you and your loved one. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are feeling independent and rather sure of yourself. You dont need outside reassurance, encouragement, opinions, advice, money or support of any kind. You really can do this on your own today. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Youll need to be mighty persuasive because what you want will be different from what others want. If you answer the question why, youll be halfway there. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Why be kind to yourself every once in a while? Get in the habit of being kind to yourself daily instead. Be tolerant of your own mistakes theyre what come from trying to do something. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If people dont give you the favorable response you were looking for, its only because you were looking for a favorable response. When you stop caring about their response, theyll suddenly respect you much more. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Youll handle the problem today. The resolution you seek requires great personal determination. Dont get angry that would only diminish your power. Think positive and take action. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will coolly act out an agenda. It will be as though one part of you is engaged in the business at hand while another part of you is quietly observing the overall direction of your interaction. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even though you enjoy the comfort and/or adventure of conversation, today youll be dealing with people who find talking with others more difficult than physical labor. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Aug. 26). Increased passion and drive are your cosmic birthday gifts this year. Youll put an exclamation mark behind your professional goals and reach new heights in September. October shows you enjoying the time you spend caring for a loved one. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 1, 22, 38 and 19.
