pile of rubble where the house once stood. There was nothing left but the foundation, which was filled with water and debris. A pool table floated in the middle. Friends cried as they picked the family’s belongings out of the mud and the mangled trees. One girl emerged from the muddy water carrying a teddy bear and a small jewelry box. Scott Conley said he helped rescue the mother and her three children, who had survived by hiding in the basement. He had arrived at his parents’ house across the street about 20 minutes before the storm hit. He said his family laid in the stairwell because they didn’t have time to get to the basement. Conley said he saw the body of the children’s father in the rubble after hours of searching. He said the man apparently ran upstairs to get a flashlight and couldn’t make it back to safety. The tornado ripped the roof and back wall off Lake High School’s gymnasium late Saturday, hours before the graduation ceremony was supposed to begin there. The ceremony was rescheduled for Tuesday at a Toledo community college. The tornado turned a township police and emergency medical services building into a mishmash of 2-by-4 framing and pink insulation. At least six police vehicles — half the township’s fleet — were destroyed, and one car was tossed into the spot where the building once stood. Those killed included a person outside the police department and a motorist, Hummer said. He said a young child and two other victims were from Millbury, a bedroom community of roughly 1,200 about 10 miles southeast of Toledo. Hummer said two other people died at hospitals but he did not have details. In southeastern Michigan, severe storms and high winds ripped siding off a building at the Fermi 2 nuclear plant, causing it to shut down automatically, said Dan Smith, the public information officer for Monroe County. DTE Energy, which owns the nuclear plant on the shore of Lake Erie, is still investigating the extent of damage, and there’s no estimate when the plant will go back into operation, spokesman Guy Cerullo said. He emphasized that the reactor itself was not damaged, just other “plant-related equipment.” About 14,000 people were without power but it wasn’t clear whether that was directly related to the nuclear plant’s shutdown or because of damage to power lines in the area, said Gregory Williams, director of emergency management for Monroe County. Eleven people with minor injuries were taken to hospitals from Dundee, Mich., where a tornado touched down with winds of about 130 mph. Tornadoes also were reported in Illinois. More than a dozen people were injured in Dwight, where about 40 mobile homes and 10 other homes were destroyed, Illinois Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman Patti Thompson said. The roof of a movie theater collapsed in Elmwood, about 30 miles west of Peoria. State Trooper Dustin Pierce said 150 to 200 people who had been inside were evacuated to the basement and no one was hurt. The storms left a trail of damaged homes in northern Indiana and three tornadoes touched down, but no one was injured. In eastern Iowa, buildings were damaged and one person was hurt when a tornado touched down in Maquoketa. A cold front colliding with warm unstable air produced the storms, said meteorologist Marty Mullen of the National Weather Service, a front that weakened as it headed east, though it did knock down trees and power lines across New York and produce high winds in Pennsylvania.

Long road to oil cleanup looms over Gulf Coast
MILLBURY — A community whose high school was destroyed the day before graduation by a tornado that killed seven people, including the valedictorian’s father, rescheduled the ceremony as residents sifted through houses in many cases reduced to rubble. The tornado was part of a line of storms that ripped through the Midwest on Saturday night and Sunday, destroying dozens of homes and an emergency services building in northwest Ohio. Storms collapsed a movie-theater roof in Illinois and ripped siding off a building at a Michigan nuclear plant, forcing a shutdown. But the worst destruction was reserved for a strip up to 300 yards wide and 10 miles long southeast of Toledo left littered Sunday with wrecked vehicles, splintered wood and family possessions. The tornado that hit Wood and Ottawa counties had estimated winds of up to 165 mph and was by far the most severe of four confirmed tornadoes to strike northern Ohio Saturday, Will Kubina, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Cleveland, said today. At least 50 homes were destroyed and another 50 severely damaged, as well as six commercial buildings. The storm fell over an area of farm fields and light industry, narrowly missing the heavily-populated suburbs on the southern edge of Toledo. “It’s a war zone,” Lake Township Police Chief Mark Hummer said. Hummer said all residents were accounted for after houseto-house searches. Doug Wensink, 17, who had planned to graduate on Sunday, said the valedictorian lived in a home on a street blocked by fallen tree limbs. Neighbors dug through a
Zach Zubricki said authorities were still trying to determine the cause of the error. BP said today that the cost of the response has reached about $1.25 billion. The company said the figure does not include $360 million for a project to build six sand berms meant to protect Louisiana’s wetlands from spreading oil. The prospect that the crisis could stretch beyond summer devastated residents along the Gulf, who are seeing more and thicker globs of oil appear all along the coast. Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, overseeing the government’s response to the spill, has expressed similar frustration, ordering cleanup crews to the Alabama coastline after surveying the scene from the air. But he acknowledged the relative futility of their efforts. Since it was placed over the busted well on Thursday, the cap has been siphoning an increasing amount of oil. On Saturday, it funneled about 441,000 gallons to a tanker on the surface, up from about 250,000 gallons it captured Friday. But it’s not clear how much is still escaping from the well, which federal authorities have estimated was leaking between 500,000 gallons and 1 million gallons a day. Since the spill began nearly seven weeks ago, roughly 23 million to 50 million gallons of oil have leaked into the Gulf. The inverted funnel-like cap is being closely watched for whether it can make a serious dent in the flow of new oil. Allen reserved judgment, saying he didn’t want to risk offering false encouragement.

Beth Metzger and her friends stop in front of the Wyoming State Capitol in Cheyenne. Delphos resident Beth Metzger is participating in The Glory Ride and Tabernacle. The vision of the group is to ride from the west coast to the east coast by horseback, worshiping, blowing the shofar and asking Almighty God to come and anoint His people to minister to the millions who are about ready to receive the answer to their prayers. Her sister, Helen Kaverman, chronicles her ride through phone calls and e-mails. By HELEN KAVERMAN Beth said: “I never want to drive over the Sierra Nevada Mountains, nor the Rockies again!” Beautiful as they are, the drive can be stressful when you can average only 35 mph going up and down and over. Many peaks were over 11,000 feet high. While in Ogden, they participated in a prayer ride, which took them past the IRS building and down several streets. While four or five ride their horses, another person follows with the truck playing Christian praise and worship music. In Ogden, they met the owner of the land on which they were camping. He said he had been neighbors to the Osmond family during his younger years in nearby Huntsville. When this gentleman found out the purpose of their mission, he very generously filled up all their vehicles at the local gas station. They visited the International House of Prayer, which is open 24 hours per

“The history of the world shows that when a mean thing was done, man did it; when a good thing was done, man did it.” — Robert G. Ingersoll, American lawyer and statesman (1833-1899)
Scared politicians curb federal spending
By LAURIE KELLMAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The 2010 elections have changed the direction of government only half way through the primary season, with voter anger and economic jitters causing lawmakers to balk at their most basic duties as well as key elements of President Barack Obama’s agenda. After betting their political future on a governmentmandated expansion of health care to include millions more Americans, Democrats appear to have little appetite for more legislative showdowns given voter rebellion against government spending amid trillion dollar-plus annual deficits. The solution in some cases is to simply not vote. Immigration reform is too politically toxic. Key bills with massive price tags are getting shelved. Congress’ core duty, exercising its power of the purse by passing a budget? Negative. A vote for it could be seen as a vote for deficit spending. There’s no sign of the 12 annual spending bills that typically come up in June. Five months out from the midterm elections, Democrats and Republicans say they have no choice but to draw lessons from the nominating contests and their own, increasingly vocal constituents. “We are hearing from the public, ’You’re adding to the deficit, you’re adding to the deficit,”’ said Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, a member of the conservative Blue Dogs who have held together against many proposals that require even more borrowing by the Treasury to pay for them. Obama himself gave his party cover for dropping any real plans to pass comprehensive immigration reform, which he’d promised to address in his first presidential year. Passing the massive health care overhaul on the heels of an economic stimulus package and several industry bailouts has sapped Congress of any “appetite” for polarizing legislation. “I don’t want us to do something just for the sake of politics that doesn’t solve the problem,” Obama told reporters Wednesday night aboard Air Force One. In March, Congress sent Obama a modest $38 billion jobs bill exempting employers who hire laid off workers from the 6.2 percent Social Security tax through the rest of

Throw in a cocktail, stir with human nature, and you’ve got that ol’ fleeting magic. But what’s with all these kissy-boys spilling the beans on their paramours? Whither chivalry? Whither, alas, manliness? The women in these romantic imbroglios are steel magnolias to the weeping willows of their undoubtedly regrettable (and perhaps forgettable) dalliances. No one needs to be reminded of Gov. Mark Sanford’s tearful confession of infidelity with his Argentine soul mate. Now-ex-wife Jenny Sanford has turned his betrayal into a cottage industry of feminine empowerment.

CHICAGO (AP) — Rod Blagojevich’s lawyers will be making their final, crucial jury decisions before the real drama begins in the former governor’s racketeering and fraud trial — one of the biggest such cases in the history of this corruption-plagued state. Judge James B. Zagel was expected to question about 30 more jurors today, after quizzing 59 potential jurors in two days and booting out 20 over objections from both sides. The final panel will be whittled down to 12 jurors plus alternates Tuesday before lawyers launch into their opening statements. Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to scheming to profit from his power as governor to fill the Senate seat President Barack Obama left to move to the White House. He also denies plotting to pressure campaign donors illegally and launching a scheme to divide the hefty dividends with advisers after he left office. Zagel refused to delay the opening statements even one day so Blagojevich and his wife could attend their daughter’s grammar school graduation. While Patti Blagojevich looked glum, the former governor flashed his usual campaign trail charm. “I’m getting to like this building,” the 53-year-old Democrat quipped Friday as he left the courthouse. Some of the potential jurors questioned so far included two former Marines, a Polishborn housekeeping supervisor, a hospital administrator, a retired videotape librarian, a bank manager, a woman who does community volunteer work and a federal Homeland Security supervisor at O’Hare International Airport. One cited Blagojevich’s television appearances, saying she viewed it as self-promotion. Blagojevich appeared on NBC’s reality TV show “Celebrity Apprentice” and on several talk shows.
McCain’s future in Senate at risk
By LIZ SIDOTI The Associated Press LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. — A serious re-election fight wasn’t what Republican John McCain expected when he returned to the Senate after losing the presidency. Yet that’s just what he’s got. The four-term senator is battling for his political life in a race that embodies the volatility of an unpredictable election year. He’s facing former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, a fellow Republican pushing him farther to the right as GOP voters demand conservative purity in their candidates and punish anyone with ties to Washington establishment. Two longtime Senate incumbents have fallen — Bob Bennett, R-Utah, and Arlen Specter, D-Pa. A third — Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark. — could see her hopes dashed this Tuesday in a runoff amid voter inclination to reward political neophytes who adhere to party principles over experience. McCain’s popularity fell in Arizona as he spent years campaigning outside of it, twice for the White House. Hayworth, a radio talk show host who had been in Congress for a dozen years but lost to a Democrat in 2006, saw a chance for a political comeback. The behemoth in the race, McCain has a decades-old political organization, millions in the bank and six campaign offices. He’s counting on his deep ties to Arizona and legions of longtime backers to carry him through. In contrast, Hayworth has never run statewide, is struggling to raise money and has just two offices. But he’s being fueled by disaffected McCain backers and voters hungry for new leadership. “He’s been there too long. And he hasn’t done anything for Arizona,” Ally Miller says of McCain, 73. “It’s time for someone new.” Among Hayworth supporters, there’s a feeling that McCain hasn’t been a loyal Republican, he’s ignored Arizona and his time has passed. Many have voted for him for years — because, they say, there wasn’t another option. With the 51-year-old Hayworth, people fed up with the status quo — and unwilling to automatically give McCain a new six-year term — have somewhere to turn. At a Hayworth appearance at a Tucson library, attended by roughly 50 backers who gave the candidate a warm reception, the chorus of com-
the year and providing about $20 billion for highway and transit programs. Employers also can get a $1,000 tax credit if new hires stay on their payroll a full year. The bill was supposed to be only the first of many election-year measures to hammer home the “jobs, jobs, jobs” rallying cry that Democrats hoped would persuade voters to stay with them in November. But Democratic moderates’ antipathy to borrowing more money to pay for the additional jobs and recession safety net measures has forced the party to abandon some and trim back others. Obama’s proposed $250 bonus payment to Social Security recipients was killed by the Senate. Also gone is an $80 billion-plus Senate plan that promised money to build roads and schools, help local governments keep teachers on the payroll and stimulate hiring in the home improvement industry with rebates for homeowners who make energy-saving investments. Just last month, deficit concerns killed $24 billion in fiscal relief to prevent state workers from being furloughed. It was a measure that earlier had won initial votes in both the House and Senate.

Libidos gone wild
plaints sounded like a death knell for McCain. “Hayworth is a true conservative patriot,” said John Kessler. “McCain has become a big government, tax-andspend liberal.” Added Joe Boogaart: “He’s changing positions for political reasons. He’s being a typical politician. So I’m taking a stand this time.” And this from Benjamin Brookhart: “We need someone who is going to stand on conservative principles and not be a Republican in name only.” But the compliments for McCain flowed a day later on the western edge of the state in tourist haven Lake Havasu, where McCain appeared at four events in a single afternoon. He greeted two dozen people at the local Chamber of Commerce, popped into a fire station to chat up firefighters and thanked a boisterous crowd of at least 100 volunteers as he opened his downtown campaign office. He held court before a crowd nearly twice that size during a question-and-answer session where he told well-worn campaign trail jokes and answered questions on everything from immigration to spending to the oil spill.

pack in the final countdown to Tuesday’s primary. Haley, a married mother of two, denied the claims of both men. One is former Haley political consultant Will Folks, who for a time was also Gov. Sanford’s director of communications. The other is lobbyist Larry Marchant Jr., who until recently was working for Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, also a contender for governorship. Like Folks, Marchant claims to have had an “inappropriate physical relationship” with Haley. He felt he had to tell because, oh, he just had to! Bauer, who paid Marchant $50,000 in consulting fees (before firing him), has challenged Haley to a polygraph test to prove she has been faithful to her husband. Seriously, Mr. Hawthorne?
To outsiders, this is the sort of delicious material that allows comedy writers to sleep in. To South Carolinians, these unfolding events are a blight, a pox, a Deepwater Horizon of gushing shame. It bears mentioning that the players in this little drama are not equals. I’ve known Folks, a take-no-prisoners political blogger, for years and take him at his word when he says that a story was about to break about his alleged relationship. Recently married and a new father, he says he was attempting damage control when he broke the story himself. I don’t condone or agree with his decision, but he’s no Marchant, whose earnest confession reeks of the selfservice to which he has now consigned himself. I also know Haley and take her at her word when she denies the allegations. But let’s get at the deeper truth and ask: Is this really where we want our politics to go? Are only perfect people acceptable for public service? As Bill Bennett once put it to me: “If perfection is our standard, then no one gets to talk.” This obsession with people’s personal lives, including the hand-wringing analysis of Al and Tipper Gore’s marriage, has turned us into a nation of purse-lipped old maids. No offense to purses. I’ve resisted
commenting on the Gores’ decision to split after 40 years of marriage because, what possibly could I know? Apologies to the deeply conflicted, but the Gores’ divorce has no bearing on my life. I reluctantly decided to weigh in on the Haley story because therein lie issues of more general consequence. This isn’t only politics at its worst. It’s a persecution, a witch hunt, a political rape. “All I know to do is fight,” said Haley by phone Friday. “Just stay strong and keep a smile on your face. ... I refuse to let this distract me.” Of greater personal concern than what may or may not have happened between consenting, if misguided, adults is, what happened to men? The South has managed through the past 150 years of regional shame to cling to the one admirable trait of its antebellum past: the Gentle Man. He, too, apparently is endangered. With notable exceptions, the once-honorable protector of women’s virtue is just another gossip-monger. Perhaps this is the legacy of our egalitarian times. When men succumb to their inner Oprah, weeping and telling like slumber-party girls, it may be time for the stronger sex to lead.

COLUMBUS — Weather interrupted action during Saturday’s portion of the State Track and Field Championships at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. When they were competing, though, Tri-County area athletes made their marks on the podium. Take the day’s best finisher in the Division III ranks, senior Lyndie Brown. She and fellow Spencerville senior Ashley Gilroy finished third and fifth, respectively, in the girls 3,200-meter run under more humid conditions than before the rains came in the morning. “We were just getting ready to start warming up when they told us to get to the bus because of the weather,” Brown noted. “You’re
end track on high note
and we run in humidity in the fall,” Gilroy noted. The duo will be going their separate ways for college: Brown to Toledo and Gilroy to Tiffin. Gilroy summed it up for both of them: “We thought a lot about this being our last race together. I’m sure there will be tears once it all hits that this was our last race in high school. Still, we ended up on the podium and that was the goal all along.” Jefferson’s 4x200-meter girls relay team of juniors Bridget Culp, Morgan Fischbach and Emily Fought and sophomore Kennedy Boggs ended up fourth in the event. As expected, they were ecstatic. “We were eighth last year at state and fourth this year. We set a high standard last year and beat that this year,” Boggs said. “We set a school record

Everybody else does, too.” The two Bearcats have been running together for four years, so they are used to running in tandem. “I do try to keep up with Lyndie, figuring that if I stay with her or within a good distance, I’m doing OK,” Gilroy said. “At the same time, I wanted to run my race and do the best I can.” Both agonized whether to participate in the 1,600-meter run earlier in the morning but after consulting with coaches and parents, both decided to withdraw. “We wanted to focus on the 3,200. After talking about it with coaches and parents — something we’d considered doing since districts — we decided we’d have a better chance in the longer race,” Brown explained. “It was a tough decision because we wanted to run in the mile race, too. We qualified for state.” The weather didn’t seem to bother the duo, either. “We’re used to it for cross country. We’ve run in all kinds of weather this spring
earlier this season in district and we broke it twice at state. We came in with the 10th-best time from the regionals and ended up fourth,” Fischbach chimed in. “We wanted to have a better time than at regionals and we did that. That’s all you can ask for; to be running your best at state,” Fought added. That success has already fueled their thoughts about next year, when their own expectations will be higher, let alone what others will heap upon them. “It will be a disappointment if we don’t do better than fourth next year,” Culp predicted. “We all play other sports, so we can’t just focus on track. However, we can do the lifting and running we need to do to stay in shape and also take care of ourselves.” Staying healthy — something that the quartet dealt with this spring — is uppermost in their minds. “We just need to stay healthy all year. We had Spencerville seniors Lyndie Brown (left) and Ashley some injury problems, so Gilroy (right) ran their last high school race Saturday at we can’t have the injuries,” Columbus, finishing third and fifth, respectively, in the Fought added. 3,200-meter run.

The Associated Press NL PHOENIX — Ubaldo Jimenez became the first 11-game winner in the majors, though his scoreless innings streak ended after a franchise-record 33, and the Colorado Rockies held on to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Sunday. Jimenez (11-1) blanked the Diamondbacks through seven innings, then gave up just his second home run of the season, a 2-run shot by Conor Jackson in the eighth. It was Arizona’s first score against the hard-throwing right-hander in 27 innings dating to last August. Jimenez allowed six hits, struck out eight and walked three as his ERA rose to 0.93. His 11 wins are three more than any other pitcher has. Arizona set a franchise record with its seventh consecutive 1-run game. Carlos Gonzalez hit a 2-run single off Rodrigo Lopez (2-4) and Troy Tulowitzki homered for the Rockies. Manny Corpas pitched a perfect ninth for his sixth save. Dodgers 5, Braves 4, 11 innings LOS ANGELES — A.J. Ellis hit an RBI single in the 11th inning to give Los Angeles a victory over Atlanta and a split of their 4-game series. Pinch-hitter Russell Martin drew a leadoff walk from Jesse Chavez (0-0), advanced on Blake DeWitt’s bunt and came home when Ellis stroked a 1-2
pitch to left for his seventh RBI of the season. Ronald Belisario (1-0) pitched two innings of 2-hit ball for the win. Rafael Furcal hit his first home run of the season and James Loney had a 2-run single for the Dodgers. Braves starter Tim Hudson allowed four runs — three earned — and nine hits in 7-plus innings. Brian McCann hit a long homer and Martin Prado also connected for Atlanta, which squandered a 4-1 lead. Mets 7, Marlins 6 NEW YORK — Jeff Francoeur hit a tying, 3-run homer in the seventh inning and New York rallied to beat Florida, running its home winning streak to eight games. Angel Pagan had a 2-run single in a 3-run sixth and scored the go-ahead run when Ike Davis grounded sharply into a double play in the eighth. Pedro Feliciano (2-2) struck out Chris Coghlan with runners on first and second to end the eighth; Francisco Rodriguez finished for his 12th save. Cody Ross struck out with a runner on second to end it. The Mets erased deficits of 5-0 and 6-3 to complete a 3-game sweep and improve to 18-4 in their last 22 games at Citi Field. They lead the majors with 22 home wins. Ross hit a 3-run homer and Dan Uggla went deep for Florida. Padres 6, Phillies 5, 10 innings PHILADELPHIA — Adrian
Gonzalez homered and drove in three runs, Chase Headley had four hits and San Diego beat Philadelphia on pinch-hitter Oscar Salazar’s 2-out infield single in the 10th inning. Nick Hundley also homered for the Padres. Headley opened the 10th with a single off Danys Baez (2-2) and advanced to third on a sacrifice and a grounder. After an intentional walk to Tony Gwynn Jr., Salazar singled deep into the shortstop hole. Heath Bell got through a shaky 10th for his 15th save in 18 chances. Placido Polanco walked with one out but was thrown out at third by Gwynn trying to advance on Chase Utley’s soft single. Ryan Howard singled to put runners at the corners but Jayson Werth struck out on a 97-mph fastball for the game. Mike Adams (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. Howard had three RBIs but Philadelphia stranded 15 runners. Reds 5, Nationals 4, 10 innings WASHINGTON — Drew Stubbs hit a 2-out single in the 10th inning, driving in Jay Bruce and helping Cincinnati beat Washington. Bruce sparked the decisive rally with a single off Doug Slaten (2-1). After Laynce Nix singled, Miguel Batista replaced Slaten and Stubbs sent another single to right. Pinch-hitter Scott Rolen gave the Reds a 4-2 lead in the ninth with a 2-run homer off Matt
Capps, one batter after Capps allowed a tying double to pinchhitter Jonny Gomes. Washington tied it against Francisco Cordero (2-3) in the bottom half on pinch-hitter Michael Morse’s 2-run double. It was Cordero’s fourth blown save in 20 tries. Nick Masset got three outs for his first save, wiggling out of a 2-out, 2-on jam by getting Ian Desmond to bounce to second. Giants 6, Pirates 5, 10 innings PITTSBURGH — Freddy Sanchez hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning after failing to drive in the go-ahead run two innings earlier and San Francisco bounced back from pinch-hitter Delwyn Young’s tying homer to beat Pittsburgh. Andres Torres doubled off Octavio Dotel (2-1) and moved up on a wild pitch ahead of a midrange fly to center by Sanchez, who went 7-for-13 in his first series in Pittsburgh since being traded to the Giants in July. Brian Wilson (2-0) got four outs for the victory despite blowing his second save in 16 opportunities. Santiago Casilla got two outs for his first save since Sept. 22, 2008, with Oakland. He struck out Jeff Clement with runners on second and third to end it. Two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum didn’t figure in the decision after losing two in a row but lasted seven innings for the first time in four starts.

Astros 6, Cubs 3 HOUSTON — Carlos Lee hit a 2-run homer and Pedro Feliz added a 2-run single, helping Houston beat Chicago. Brett Myers (4-3) pitched well into the seventh inning, scattering eight hits while allowing only two earned runs and striking out six. He left with two outs and two on but reliever Wilton Lopez got the final out of the inning to end the threat. Matt Lindstrom pitched the ninth to earn his 13th save in 16 chances. The four runs constituted a rare outburst for the Houston offense against Randy Wells (3-4), who had not allowed an earned run against the Astros in 20 2/3 innings. Wells left after 5 1/3 innings and hasn’t won since April 30. Brewers 4, Cardinals 3, 10 innings ST. LOUIS — Rickie Weeks homered early and Corey Hart hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning, lifting Milwaukee over St. Louis. Manny Parra struck out a career-high 10 in 5 1/3 innings and the Brewers overcame Albert Pujols’ 14th home run to snap a 3-game skid. The Cardinals, who had won three straight, fought back from a 3-run deficit but lost for the third time in 10 games. Jason Motte (2-2), who had retired 32 consecutive batters, walked Prince Fielder with one out in the 10th. Ryan Braun followed with an infield single and Casey McGehee also singled, loading the bases. Hart drove in Fielder with a fly to center. Zach Braddock (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win. -----AL BALTIMORE — The Baltimore Orioles ended their 10-game losing streak in dramatic fashion, getting an RBI single from slumping Nick Markakis in the 11th inning to defeat the Boston Red Sox 4-3 Sunday. The victory was the first for interim manager Juan Samuel, who was promoted when Dave Trembley was fired Friday. The Orioles lost Samuel’s first two games by a combined 19-2 score. Cesar Izturis led off the 11th with a walk against Hideki Okajima (2-2) and went to second on a sacrifice. After Miguel Tejada was walked intentionally, Markakis — mired in an 0-for-14 skid — blooped a single to center easily scoring the winning run. David Hernandez (2-5) pitched two innings of scoreless relief for the Orioles. Yankees 4, Blue Jays 3 TORONTO — Robinson Cano hit a tie-breaking, 2-run single in the eighth and the Yankees rallied past the Blue Jays to avoid a 3-game sweep. Vernon Wells’ 2-run homer in the sixth was the only hit allowed by Yankees starter Javier Vazquez (5-5) in seven innings; New York’s power-packed lineup — which managed just three runs in the first 30 innings of the series — scored four in the eighth. The comeback spoiled a fine outing by Blue Jays righthander Brandon Morrow, who didn’t allow a run through the first seven innings. Scott Downs (1-5) took the loss. Rays 9, Rangers 5 ARLINGTON, Texas — John Jaso drove in five runs, Matt Garza won for the first time in a month and the Rays avoided a weekend sweep. Jaso had a 2-run homer, a 2-run single and an RBI double as the designated hitter from the

leadoff spot, a day after the rookie became the first Rays catcher ever to bat first. Carlos Pena also homered for Tampa Bay (37-20), which still has the best record in the majors and a 2-game lead over the New York Yankees in the AL East. Athletics 5, Twins 4 OAKLAND, Calif. — Gio Gonzalez struck out four in seven innings to win his third straight decision and the Athletics scored all of their runs with two outs against the Twins. Jack Cust and Kevin Kouzmanoff hit back-to-back RBI singles in the first to stake Gonzalez (6-3) to an early 2-0 lead. Ryan Sweeney hit an RBI double in the second and Mark Ellis and Cliff Pennington added RBI singles in the third to chase the Twins’ Nick Blackburn (6-3). Delmon Young hit a 2-run homer off Tyson Ross in the eighth for the Twins, who were trying for their first sweep in Oakland since July 18-20, 1997. Royals 7, Tigers 2 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Brian Bannister won his career-high fifth straight start, Jose Guillen hit a 3-run homer and the Royals roughed up Jeremy Bonderman. Bannister (6-3) improved to 20-8 in day games and is 5-2 with a 2.16 ERA in nine starts against the Tigers. He ended his streak of allowing a home run at nine consecutive games. Bonderman (2-4) allowed seven runs on a season-high 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings, after entering the game with a 1.80 ERA in his last six outings. White Sox 8, Indians 7 CHICAGO — Paul Konerko hit a 2-run homer and Carlos Quentin added a go-ahead 2-run single in the seventh to lead the White Sox to a comeback victory. J.J. Putz (1-2) struck out two in a scoreless seventh to get the win, and Bobby Jenks pitched a perfect ninth for his ninth save in 10 chances. Lou Marson hit a 3-run homer and Austin Kearns had three hits for the Indians, while reliever Tony Sipp (0-2) was credited with the loss. Angels 9, Mariners 4 SEATTLE — Mike Napoli had four hits, including a 2-run homer that snapped a seventh-inning tie and lifted the Angels to their fifth straight victory. Joel Pineiro (4-6) got plenty of help from Erick Aybar and Napoli, who both went 4-for-5. After the Mariners rallied to tie it at 4 in the sixth, Napoli jumped on a high slider from Shawn Kelley (3-1), driving it over the right-field wall and the outstretched arm of Ichiro Suzuki to put Los Angeles up 6-4. Napoli also singled and scored in the ninth.
Allen, Rondo lead Celtics past Lakers, even finals
LOS ANGELES — When Pau Gasol swatted Kendrick Perkins’ hook shot right back where it came from, Rajon Rondo scooped it up. Boston’s slick point guard leaped to the rim and scored before Gasol even knew what hadn’t hit him, giving the Celtics a fourth-quarter lead they didn’t relinquish in Game 2 of the NBA finals. While Ray Allen’s finalsrecord eight 3-pointers gave the Celtics some glitz, Rondo’s triple-double exemplified much of the grit in their 103-94 victory Sunday night, evening the series before the teams headed to Boston. The Celtics’ starting guards somehow held together a choppy, foul-plagued game in which their big men were roundly outplayed by the Lakers, who blocked a finalsrecord 14 shots and scored relentlessly down low in a foul-choked finals game. But Gasol and Andrew Bynum couldn’t block any of the shots that mattered most: those 3-pointers by Allen, who scored 27 of his 32 points in the first half, and 10 fourth-quarter points from Rondo, whose 19 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists somehow didn’t cover his impact on this equalizer. “They both were terrific,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said. “We needed points and Ray gave them to us. Rondo did a terrific job finding him. ... He’s our quarterback and he does a lot of stuff for us. He was special.” Game 3 is Tuesday night, the first of three in Boston. Kobe Bryant scored 21 points while battling more foul trouble for the Lakers, who couldn’t catch up to Boston’s dynamic guards in Los Angeles’ first home playoff loss since last season’s Western Conference finals, ending a 12-game streak and a 9-0 start to these playoffs. Gasol had 25 points and eight rebounds for the Lakers; Bynum added 21 points and

six rebounds. The Lakers’ aura of invincibility at Staples Center didn’t make it through the fourth quarter. Bryant picked up three fouls while shooting poorly in the first half. He committed his fifth early in the fourth, keeping him shy of 30 points for just the sixth time in the postseason. “It’s a series,” Bryant yawned. “You’re trying to stay even-keel. You don’t get too high, don’t get too low after a win or a loss. You just go into the next one and take care of business.” That’s exactly what Allen and Rondo did after mostly forgettable performances in the finals opener. While Allen scored just 12 points through foul trouble, Rondo started slowly and never catalyzed the Celtics’ offense with the same flair he showed while growing into the Celtics’ biggest offensive threat in these playoffs. Although it wasn’t as gaudy as his monstrous 29-point, 18-rebound, 13-assist Game 4 in the second round against Cleveland, Rondo’s 10-point fourth quarter against the Lakers looms among his largest achievements — particularly if Boston gets rolling toward its 18th championship this week. “The best part about getting a triple-double is getting a win,” Rondo said. “That’s pretty much it. It would be pointless to get a triple-double and lose the game.” Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett weren’t much help to Allen, who hit seven 3-pointers before halftime alone, tying the finals record for a full game.
With his eighth 3-pointer midway through the third, Allen broke the record for a full finals game he shared with Kenny Smith and Scottie Pippen — and though he didn’t hit another under tight defense, Rondo took charge. “There’s no better place, moment, time ... to win a game and to win in a great fashion,” Allen said. “I don’t know what record it is that people are telling me that I got but it’s great to have, great to be able to look back on it and say I did that. This is definitely our time.” Sliding effortlessly around his teammates’ picks and crisply releasing his fundamentally flawless jumper, Allen didn’t even miss until his eighth try rimmed out in the waning moments of the half, stunning both his bench and the Staples Center crowd. “He looked like somebody took his ball the last game and he couldn’t play,” Pierce said of Allen. “He came out

here and he shot lights out. You could tell he was frustrated from the last game because of the foul trouble, so he wanted to go out there and prove something tonight. I think he really showed us why Ray Allen is a future Hall-of-Famer and one of the best shooters to ever play.” After the Lakers’ whistleplagued 102-89 victory in the opener, both teams again struggled under the weight of foul trouble — 29 fouls called on each team. With Allen and Rondo playing spectacular basketball, none of it mattered. “Our big guys played great,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. “We didn’t get the ball often enough to them, or in a good enough position many times, and a lot of our outside shooting was not that (good). ... In a sequence like this, there’s no doubt it’s a blow to us to lose the homecourt but we anticipated this might happen, and we’re just going to have to go pick it up.”

Bowen captures first Thunderstocks win with Steve Brown Memorial
For The Delphos Herald
ELIDA — First-time winners are always special because at whatever level of involvement, it marks a culmination of effort put forth to compete in the rough-and-tumble world of professional motorsports. For young Zach Bowen, his first win just happened to be in the prestigious 11th annual Steve Brown Memorial Race for the Budweiser Thunderstocks. Bowen, son of multi-time Thunderstocks feature winner Tim Bowen, started third on the field, with Sam Bodine and Keith Ralston on the front row. By the second lap, Zach Bowen had taken over race leadership and suddenly, his father stuck his car into the first turn wall, bringing out a caution period. While the elder Bowen’s night was ended, the younger was embarking upon his first-career feature victory. Zach Bowen was riding the high side of the track to a dominant position, although veteran Ernie Woodward of Kentucky was quickly moving up to second place by the 9th lap after starting in the not-soenviable ninth position. Lima’s Jeff Koz was challenging Woodward by lap 12 when he suddenly suffered a right front flat tire ending his race. Ironically, one lap later on the 13th circuit, Woodard suffered a mechanical break on his machine and also was sent to the pits. The collective Koz and Woodard misfortunes left Bowen virtually uncontested through the final 5 laps and on his way to the win. “I felt it might happen this year,” said Bowen, of Liberty Center. “To actually win almost leaves me speechless. I just graduated and spent most of my graduation money on new tires, so I can use this ($1,000 to win).” A 20-car field for the Elwer Fence 360 sprints was led to green by veterans Kent Wolters and Jeff Williams. Williams took the early lead with second-row starter Todd Heuerman giving chase. Through the opening eight or nine laps of the feature, Heuerman and Williams battled in an exciting side-by-side tussle. The orange-colored No. 18 of Heuerman made a strong pass on the outside for the lead on lap 10. For Heuerman, lapped traffic proved to be his next biggest obstacle as he stayed mostly on the top of the track working through the field. A close call for Heuerman coming off of turn 4 nearly stuck him in the wall before a dive to the bottom allowed him to escape the developing trouble. Kyle Sauder was moving into contention from his ninth starting position to 2nd behind Heuerman by the time a caution flag flew from a Butch Schroeder spin in turn four on lap 18. The subsequent restart saw Sauder racing closely to Heuerman’s tail until Sauder made the deciding pass on the outside for the lead and win on lap 21. It was Sauder’s first win at Limaland since 2002 and the sixth of his career in sprints all-time at Limaland Motorsports Park. “It’s been a while since I competed here regularly,” recalled Sauder. “I give this win to all my crew guys and to God for giving me the talent to do this kind of thing. My car was set up real well and one thing I haven’t done this year is worry much about the car. This car won the King of the Quarter mile last year and we’ll see if it can’t be two in a row this year.” As the K & N UMP Modifieds took the green flag for their 20-lap feature, the big question appeared to be whether Tony Anderson, starting on the pole, might be able to win an elusive first feature in the modified division. The Bluffton native has won numerous Thunderstocks events over the years but never a modified main. Little did everyone realize that fellow front-row starter John Brooks would eventually take top honors and post his first career modified win. By lap 3, Brooks made a strong outside pass for the lead and would never succumb to the assault of some of the best drivers and cars in the division Anderson, Brian Post, Terry Hull and Todd Sherman all gave serious chase to Brooks but never did they catch and pass him. Following a lap-10 caution and restart, Brooks again held strong against Anderson’s charge. Brooks drove through lapped cars again by the 15th circuit and led Anderson and Sherman across the line for his first-ever triumph at Limaland’s 1/4mile layout. “It is awesome to win here,” stated Brooks. “I’ve been trying to win at this place for years. I’ve been trying to win here in a stock car race and even though this is a modified, this win is dedicated to Darrel and Ora Brown. I came through the heat and thought I had a good car tonight. All those long nights in the shop, this win sure makes it worth it.” On Friday, Limaland Motorsports Park will have a Meet the Drivers night featuring the NRA Sprint Invaders along with the K & N UMP Modifieds and Budweiser Thunderstocks. Gates open at 5 p.m. with hot laps beginning at 6:30 p.m. Racing starts promptly at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the 22nd annual Brad Doty Classic, July 14, featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series,

‘Twilight’ eclipses bleephappy MTV Movie Awards
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (AP) — Sandra Bullock was kissing and telling at the MTV Movie Awards. Bullock, wearing a glittery black dress, received a standing ovation as she accepted the MTV Generation Award in her first live televised appearance since she split with unfaithful husband Jesse James earlier this year. The 45-year-old actress used her acceptance speech to clear up tabloid rumors — “No. 1: I’m not dead.” — and smooch Scarlett Johansson. “No matter what you might have seen or heard or read lately, I love what I do,” vowed Bullock, “and I’m not going anywhere.” Bullock was presented with the show’s highest honor by her “All About Steve” costar Bradley Cooper, “The Proposal” co-star Betty White and inexplicably Johansson, the wife of her absentee “Proposal” leading man Ryan Reynolds. When asked why she was there to help hand over the trophy, Johansson hinted she wanted to lay one on Bullock, who awkwardly obliged. “Now that we have done that,” said a smiling Bullock, “can we please go back to normal?” Bullock was fresh off her surprise appearance Saturday night at Spike TV’s “Guys Choice” event in Culver City, Calif., but that show won’t be broadcast until June 20. She also received a standing ovation there when she accepted the “Troops Choice” award for entertainer of the year, voted on by members of the military and presented by Robert Downey, Jr. When it came to the awards at Sunday’s freewheeling and often-bleeped ceremony at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif., “The Twilight Saga” eclipsed the competition for the second year. “New Moon” sucked up trophies for best movie, kiss, female performance for Kristen Stewart and male performance and global superstar for Robert Pattinson. “I guess ’Twilight’ is really awesome, and I agree,” said Stewart. “Woo!” Other winners selected by online votes included “Obsessed” co-stars Beyonce Knowles and Ali Larter for best fight, “Jennifer’s Body” star Amanda Seyfried for “scared-as-s--t moment,” “Ninja Assassin” star Rain for “biggest badass star,” “The Hangover” star Zach Galifianakis for comedic performance and “Up in the Air” co-star Anna Kendrick for breakout star. “This is the coolest moment ever,” said Kendrick, clutching her popcorn trophy. “This is going on my coffee table.” Tom Cruise launched the show as “Tropic Thunder” character Les Grossman, a profanity-spewing Hollywood producer. In the opening bit, Grossman used Michael Cera as a human bookend and berated “The Karate Kid” star Jaden Smith as his father Will Smith looked on. He later appeared on stage and danced alongside pop star Jennifer Lopez to Ludacris’ “Get Back.” Grossman wasn’t the only character whose naughty language was frequently censored. The cast of “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” were barely audible as they presented an emotional Ken Jeong of “The Hangover” with the award for “WTF moment.” Christina Aguilera, who performed a medley of tunes from her new album, was also muffled as she sang the saucy “Woohoo.” A comically angry Mark Wahlberg, however, was able to slip several bad words past censors during the presentation of the best villain trophy to Tom Felton of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”
‘Shrek Forever After’ leads slow Hollywood weekend
BY DAVID GERMAIN, The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Hollywood is in a June swoon as a rush of new movies fails to grab audiences. DreamWorks Animation’s “Shrek Forever After” remained the No. 1 movie for a third-straight weekend with $25.3 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. It raised its three-week domestic total to $183 million. “It appears that the family audience is dominating the box office right now, and families clearly want to see ‘Shrek,’” said Anne Globe, head of marketing for DreamWorks Animation. The overall box office tumbled, coming in at $125 million, down 24 percent compared to the same weekend last year, when “The Hangover” opened with $45 million, according to boxoffice tracker Hollywood. com. The best of the newcomers was Universal’s rock ‘n’ roll comedy “Get Him to the Greek,” which debuted at No. 2 with $17.4 million. The movie stars Jonah Hill as a record executive escorting an unruly rocker (Russell Brand) from London to Los Angeles for a concert. Opening at No. 3 with $16.1 million was Lionsgate’s action comedy “Killers,” starring Katherine Heigl as a woman who marries her dream man (Ashton Kutcher) only to learn he’s an international assassin. Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal, said the studio is happy with the results for “Get Him to the Greek” but that slumping revenues for Hollywood in general are a concern. “Everybody is talking to me about that, and I don’t have an answer,” Rocco said. The weekend after Memorial Day a year ago, the blockbuster “Up” premiered with $68.1 million. That was more than the combined $52.3 million total for “Get Him to the Greek,” ‘’Killers” and anemic openings for this weekend’s two other new wide releases — 20th Century Fox’s family comedy “Marmaduke” at $11.3 million and the Warner Bros. horror tale “Splice” at $7.5 million. “The films a year ago were generating a ton of excitement, and this year’s just kind of falling flat.

had four new wide releases, and a three-week-old movie is still No. 1,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. “I don’t know if they’re bored or if ticket prices are too high or if they just have other things to do.” The quiet weekend follows a sluggish May that ended with the slowest Memorial Day holiday in 17 years in terms of movie attendance. Two big Memorial Day weekend releases, the Warner Bros. sequel “Sex and the City 2” and Disney’s “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” failed to light up the box office, and both fell off sharply in their second weekends. “Prince of Persia” was
No. 4 with $13.9 million, down 54 percent from opening weekend and raising its domestic total to $59.5 million. “Sex and the City 2” finished at No. 5 with $12.7 million, down 59 percent and lifting its haul to $73.4 million. For the year, Hollywood revenues are at $4.47 billion, up 3.7 percent over the record pace last year. But factoring in higher ticket prices, attendance now has slipped 2.7 percent behind last year’s, according to Hollywood. com. The box office can turn on a dime, though, so Hollywood could regain its momentum with just a few big hits. “I’m still confident when you take a look at some of the films coming up in the summer, that audiences will start coming out in droves,” said David Spitz, head of distribution for Lionsgate. “There’s a lot of big titles, including next weekend.” This Friday brings a 1980s flashback with a remake of “The Karate Kid” starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith, the son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, and a big-screen adaptation of the TV action series “The A-Team,” featuring Liam Neeson, Jessica Biel and “The Hangover” co-star
Bradley Cooper. Still to come are “Toy Story 3,” reuniting voice stars Tom Hanks and Tim Allen; Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz’s action comedy “Knight and Day”; “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” the third installment in the vampire-romance franchise; and Leonardo DiCaprio’s science-fiction thriller “Inception,” from “The Dark Knight” director Christopher Nolan. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood. com. Final figures will be released today. 1. “Shrek Forever After,” $25.3 million. 2. “Get Him to the Greek,” $17.4 million. 3. “Killers,” $16.1 million. 4. “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” $13.9 million. 5. “Sex and the City 2,” $12.7 million. 6. “Marmaduke,” $11.3 million. 7. “Iron Man 2,” $7.8 million. 8. “Splice,” $7.5 million. 9. “Robin Hood,” $5.1 million. 10. “Letters to Juliet,” $3 million.

grown in central and southern Florida for production of wood chips and mulch. The new test forests will show whether the genetically altered trees can thrive farther north in Florida, where freezing temperatures can occur in the winter. Donald Rockwood, a professor emeritus in the University of Florida’s School of Forest Resources and Conservation, has worked for about 30 years on developing eucalyptus trees that thrive in Florida. He uses traditional breeding techniques, not genetic modification. The genetically unaltered trees growing in controlled plantations in Florida have not proven invasive, are relatively efficient users of water and are no more flammable than other hardwoods, said Rockwood, who was hired by ArborGen to do a report on eucalyptus trees’ invasiveness because of his experience working with them at the university. Still, Rockwood said, introduction of any genetically altered species poses risks. For example, the gene that makes the trees resistant to cold could be transferred to surrounding plants, allowing them to spread farther north than nature had intended. “It certainly needs to be done carefully, it needs to be regulated and there needs to be a period of well-defined observations,” Rockwood said. The ArborGen trees will be planted in seven counties throughout Florida, four counties each in South Carolina and Texas, two each in Alabama and Mississippi and single counties in Georgia and Louisiana. Rockwood said they can grow about 25 feet per year and be ready to harvest in less than three years. ArborGen is a joint venture of International Paper, MeadWestvaco and Rubicon Ltd.

Tuesday, June 8, 2010 A large endeavor that failed in the past is likely to be resurrected in the year ahead, and developed into something of great value. Looking at it with a fresh eye will reveal ways to turn it into a wonderful creation. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You could find yourself more earnestly keeping your mind on something that needs solving, and consequently coming up with the answer. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Because your eye is much sharper than usual for the little pieces that make up the whole, everything you do will be done with considerable care. Mistakes aren’t likely to be a factor. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Everything you undertake should work out to your advantage, not because you’re lucky, but because you’re far more methodical than usual. It’s a time to carry things as far as you dare. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Use this day for advancing serious endeavors that hold promise for larger rewards both of a tangible and intangible nature. Your mind is sharper than usual and will spot opportunities others miss. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Exciting things could happen for you today, mainly because you’re likely to handle serious matters like a game, but one that you play exceedingly well. You’ll enjoy who you are, what you are and where you are. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Significant transformations in growth are likely to transpire at this time without the detection of your competitors. Before they realize what has happened, you’ll be far beyond their reach. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - If behooves you to pay attention to what others have to say, and that includes listening to your spouse. What they know can be used to your benefit in extremely beneficial ways. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Today offers a unique but brief time frame that is likely to expose you to a greater array of beneficial opportunities. Be alert and capitalize on as many as you can handle. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Don’t put any limitations on your imagination, especially if you are involved in some form of creative work. You are likely to conceive something quite ingenious and profitable. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Your eye and mind are both sharp for picking up on the little things others have seemed to miss. Consequently, you could spot something that will prove to be extremely advantageous for you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) What you do is likely to capture the attention of the powers that be, so it behooves you to do good work when on the job. It could open the door for a bonus or a raise. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) There’s a good chance that you’re on the verge of producing something that has impressive potential. Keep doing what you’re doing, because it could earn you a higher position in life. Copyright 2010, United Feature Syndicate, Inc.
