Tony Stewart pulled out of the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen Sunday, 12 hours af ter the three-time champion struck and killed a sprint car driver who had climbed from his car and was on the dark ened dirt track trying to con front Stewart during a race in upstate New York. Greg Zipadelli, compe tition director for Stew art-Haas Racing, said at a news conference that Stew art feels strongly about not competing Sunday following the death of Kevin Ward, Jr. The decision was an aboutface for the organization, which initially said Stewart would be behind the wheel of his No. 14 Chevrolet when the green ag waved. We gave Tony some time to sleep on it. He feels strong ly this is the right thing to do, Zipadelli said. All you can do is what you feel is right, and we feel this is right. We get through today and do it the best we can as a group. In a statement, Stewart said the crash has been emotion al for all involved. There arent words to de scribe the sadness I feel about the accident that took the life of Kevin Ward Jr., he said.

THERESA CAMPBELL | Staff Writer theresacampbell@dailycommercial.com R on Franklin of Franklin Con struction Services in Leesburg marvels over the architec ture inside the centu ry-old train depot near downtown Leesburg that his crew is restor ing to its former glory. Were trying to keep as much of it as possi ble in the same era as we can, Franklin said of the project at 300 N. Palmetto St. The work, which is expected to cost in ex cess of $300,000, is be ing funded by Beacon College. The deteriorat ed depot is owned by Leesburg, yet the city agreed to lease the building for $100 a year to Beacon, a pri vate school that serves students with learn ing disabilities. Bea con, in turn, agreed to restore the historic el ements of the train de pot at no cost to the city. The college wants to use the depot, which was rst constructed in 1913, for educational and recreational pur poses, and Beacon also pledged to make the building accessible for public use. This is a lovely proj ect to be involved in, Franklin said. I am al ways in awe of the old way of doing things, when everything that they did years ago was by hand, hand-sawed, nailed all the nails by hand, and the architec ture is just beautiful. Just to be able to have an opportunity to work on a place like this and restore it is just awe some. Franklins crew has relied on a yellow dry wall lift inside the de pot, with its 12-foot ceilings, in order to do the interior carpentry work of replacing old walls and adding trim. Some of the trim work was so damaged and we tried to keep it to where the look is closely the same as the other, and we do have some trim that is be ing recongured by RoMac Lumber, Franklin said. I have samples down there that they are actually remaking. When the project is nished, Beacon Col lege will be responsible for all the utilities, sales SEE STEWART | A2 SEE CONSENT | A2 SEE TEEN | A2 LEESBURG Blast from the past 1913 train depot being restored to its former glory by Beacon College SEE DEPOT | A2 ALMENDINGER WINS AGAIN AT WATKINS GLEN, SEE PAGE B1

CALENDAR Email upcoming events to pam.fennimore@dailycommercial.com. a driver of Stewarts stature. Stewart frequently races in the events as a hobby to the side of the big-money NASCAR races. Ward, a 20-year-old driv er, had crashed following a bump with Stewart one lap earlier. Ward and Stew art were racing side-by-side for position as they exited a turn. Ward was on the outside when Stewart, on the bottom, seemed to slide toward Wards car and crowd him toward the wall. The rear tire of Stewarts car appeared to clip the front tire of Wards car, and Ward spun into the fence. Video showed Ward walk ing from his crashed car onto the racing surface as cars cir cled by, and, as he gestured at Stewarts passing car, he was struck. Ward was standing to the right of Stewarts familiar No. 14 car, which seemed to kick out from the rear and hit him. The next thing I could see, I didnt see (the other driver) anymore, witness Michael Messerly said. It just seemed like he was suddenly gone. Authorities questioned Stewart once on Saturday night and went to Watkins Glen to talk to him again Sun day. They described him as visibly shaken after the crash and said he was cooperative. On Sunday, Ontario Coun ty Sheriff Philip Povero said that criminal charges have not been ruled out, but that investigators also dont have any evidence at this point in the investigation to support criminal intent. Stewart is free to go about his business, Povero said. The sheriff renewed a plea for spectators to turn over photos and videos of the crash. He said cars on the track were traveling around 30-35 mph at the time Ward was struck. Investigators were reconstructing the accident and looking into everything from the dim lighting on a portion of the track to how muddy it was, as well as if the dark resuit Ward was wear ing played a role in his death. Getting out of a wrecked car to confront another driv er is common in almost every series. Wrecked race cars can rarely be driven off the track, and the driver has to get out to nd his way back to either the pits or the garage. It cre ates ample opportunity for angry confrontations. Stewart has had a few of his own, and everyone from mild-mannered Jeff Gordon to ladylike Danica Patrick has erupted in anger on the track at another driver. The con frontations are part of the sports culture: Fans love it and cheer wildly from the stands. They love the bumping, the banging and the bickering. Driver Cory Sparks, a friend of Wards, was driving in Sat urday nights race and was a few cars back when Ward was killed. The timing was unsafe, he said of Wards decision to get out of his car to confront Stew art. When your adrenaline is going, and youre taken out of a race, your emotions are. The crash Saturday came almost exactly a year after Stewart suffered a compound fracture to his right leg in a sprint car race in Iowa. Stew art only returned to sprint track racing last month. The broken leg cost him the entire second-half of last season and sidelined him during NASCARs import ant Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. STEWART FROM PAGE A1 public funds to set a standard for when yes means yes. Dening consensu al sex is a growing trend by universities in an ef fort to do more to pro tect victims. From the University of California system to Yale, schools have been adopting standards to distinguish when consent was giv en for a sexual activity and when it was not. Legislation passed by Californias state Sen ate in May and com ing before the Assem bly this month would require all schools that receive public funds for student nancial assis tance to set a so-called afrmative consent standard that could be used in investigat ing and adjudicating sexual assault allega tions. That would be dened as an afrma tive, unambiguous and conscious decision by each party to engage in sexual activity. Silence or lack of re sistance does not con stitute consent. The legislation says its also not consent if the per son is drunk, drugged, unconscious or asleep. Lawmakers say con sent can be nonverbal, and universities with similar policies have outlined examples as maybe a nod of the head or moving in clos er to the person. Several state legisla tures, including Mary land, Texas and Con necticut, introduced bills in the past year to push colleges to do more after a White House task force re ported that 1 in 5 fe male college students is a victim of sexual as sault. The U.S. Educa tion Department also took the unprecedent ed step of releasing the names of schools fac ing federal investiga tion for the way they handle sexual abuse al legations. But no state legislation has gone as far as Cali fornias bill in requiring a consent standard. Critics say the state is overstepping its bounds. The Los Ange les Times in an editorial after the bill passed the state Senate 27-4 wrote that it raises questions as to whether it is rea sonable or enforce able. The legislation is based on the White House task forces rec ommendations. It seems extreme ly difcult and extraor dinarily intrusive to micromanage sex so closely as to tell young people what steps they must take in the priva cy of their own dorm rooms, the newspaper said. Some fear navigat ing the murky waters of consent spells trouble for universities. Frequently these cas es involve two individu als, both of whom maybe were under the inu ence of alcohol or drugs, and it can be very tricky to ascertain whether consent was obtained, said Ada Meloy, general counsel of the American Council on Education, which represents college presidents. John F. Banzhaf III, a George Washington Universitys Law School professor, believes hav ing university disci plinary panels interpret vague cues and body language will open the door for more lawsuits. The legal denition of rape in most states means the perpetrator used force or the threat of force against the vic tim, but the Califor nia legislation could set the stage in which both parties could accuse each other of sexual as sault, he said. This bill would very, very radically change the denition of rape, he said. CONSENT FROM PAGE A1 the men pushed the ofcer back into his squad car and a struggle began. Belmar said at least one shot was red from the ofcers gun inside the po lice car. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said authori ties were still sorting out what happened inside the police car. The struggle spilled out into the street, where Brown was shot multiple times. Belmar said the exact number of shots wasnt known, but it was more than just a couple. He also said all shell casings found at the scene matched the ofcers gun. Police are still investigat ing why the ofcer shot Brown, who police have conrmed was unarmed. Jackson said the second per son has not been arrested or charged and was expected to be interviewed later Sunday. Authorities arent sure if that person was unarmed, Jackson said. A few hundred protesters gathered outside Ferguson Po lice headquarters about the time the news conference was to begin. At one point, many of them marched into an adjacent police building, some chanting Dont shoot me while holding their hands in the air. Ofcers stood at the top of a staircase, but didnt use force; the crowd eventually left. Protesters outside chant ed slogans No justice, no peace and We want answers and some carried signs that read Stop police terrorism and Disarm the police. St. Louis County Police De partment is in charge of the investigation. County Exec utive Charlie Dooley, who showed up at the protest Sun day to urge calm, said he will request an FBI investigation.

The college is also responsi ble for all interior and ex terior maintenance. The lease is for 10 years, with two 10-year renewal pe riods. At the end of the nal renewal, the college has the right of rst re fusal to continue leasing the property at fair mar ket value as determined by an appraisal. The train depot is a historic building and for us to have the options on seeing that building be ing reutilized in keeping the historic nature of it is a fantastic idea, said Robert Sargent, Leesburg spokesman. It is de nitely a testament of pri vate and public partner ships. Sargent noted that when Beacon Col lege built Beacon Hall in downtown Leesburg, school ofcials were careful to match the ar chitectural style of the li brary across the street. Now the college is tak ing a historic building and make it into a usable space, Sargent said, not ing the train depot was most recently was being used for storage. And what Beacon wants to do is actual ly make the train depot a very active space, he said. It will feature free public Wi-Fi and an out side rest area for the ad jacent recreational trail, and art programs. The train depot is right next to our trail, so by having a public facility being xed up and mak ing it a more usable pub lic space next to the trail certainly opens opportu nities for bringing a little more visibility to the rec reational trail, Sargent said. Gretchen Dreimiller, acting director of Beacon College, said the project could take three to four years to complete. Dreimiller said the building will be put to immediate use as the in terim Student Center for the college. The future use of the space is unclear, but the college has a pressing need for a dedicated stu dent centered area, she said. Dreimiller said the depot will include a t ness center, comput er room, TV room and a game room, with a pool table and air hockey ta ble. Additionally, one of the colleges life coaches will occupy the building. Utilizing this building as a student center is crit ical to meeting the needs of the student body, Dre imiller said, recalling in the past academic year, Beacon students had lim ited space that was free solely for their use. The tness center was very small, so even though the college offers regular aerobics classes, very few students could participate in them, and students interested in just using the gym equip ment could not easi ly do so when a class was in session. Students will now have triple the amount of oor space available, and with the colleges rapid growth, it is especially import ant that there be enough room for 15-20 students to participate in popular aerobics classes such as kickboxing and Zumba, she said.

Rick Scott talks with supporters on July 4 during the opening of his campaign ofce in The Villages. Staff Report Local historians plan to install a historic marker outside the 1927 home of a former Mount Dora may or and Chamber of Com merce president. The stucco house with a gable roof, located at 816 N. Clayton St., was con structed by local builder A.J. Waltz roughly 50 years after the city was settled. He built the bungalow as an investment house, and served as both mayor and chamber president, ac cording to Gus Gianikas, the citys assistant direc tor of planning and devel opment. To be eligible for a his toric marker, a house must have some type of histor ical or architectural sig nicance, Gianikas said in a letter supporting the marker. The Waltz-Davis house has both, he said. On the historical side, a house has to be associat ed in a signicant way with the life or activities of a major person important in city, state or national his tory, Gianikas said. On the architectural side, a house has to embody dis tinguishing characteristics of an architectural style, pe riod or method of construc tion, or is a historic work of a prominent architect, de signer or builder. In the 1920s and 1930s, F.W. and Hortense Davis owned the home. F.W. Da vis was prominent in the fruit-growing business and real estate, summering in North Carolina, historical records show. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home with a detached garage is cur rently owned by Mark A. Miceli, who bought it for $180,000 in 2005 from Glenn Downer, proper ty records show. Down er paid $139,000 for the home a year earlier.

Rick Scott would ask of Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist: How can the people of Florida trust your recent conversion? But the words were Crists, and the question was asked to Tom Gallagh er during the 2006 Republican primary for governor. Crist easily won that race in large part because he accused Galla gher of shifting his politics just to win the election. Talking about being a conservative after a political lifetime of liberalism just isnt believable, Crist said of Gallagher. Now Crist is the leading Democratic candidate for governor and is facing the same accusations in reverse from Florida Republicans and his Democrat ic primary opponent, Nan Rich. They say Crist cant be trusted because of his political conversion from Republican to independent to Democrat. Charlie Crist is like Floridas weather. If you dont like his positions now, wait a little while and hell change them, former Republican Gov. Jeb Bush said in an email. The man is organized purely around his own personal ambi tion. Nothing he says can be believed. Crists reputation for being a say-any thing-for-a-vote politician isnt new. Opponents say Crists political conversion isnt believable SEE CRIST | A4

IN MEMORY COMPTON Gallagher accused him of it, as did Marco Rubio when he chased Crist from the 2010 Repub lican Senate primary. Now Scott has joined in. Its hard to believe that someone can go from a Ronald Reagan Republican to a Barack Obama liberal in a short period of time. Its pret ty dramatic, Scott said in a phone interview. Crist insists he hasnt changed, saying he was a moderate as a Repub lican and still is. What changed in the interim is my par tys leadership, Crist said, adding he cant stomach the intolerant views of his former par ty. I always kind of felt, particularly on social is sues, I was a round peg in a square hole. Theres no doubt Crist was a moderate when he was elected gover nor. He supported em bryonic stem cell re search and gay civil unions. Once elected, he made peace with the state teachers union, which Bush fought, pushed for clean energy to ght climate change, cozied up to Democrat ic leaders and vetoed an abortion bill that was a GOP priority. But when he found Rubio beating him in the 2010 primary, he in sisted no one was more conservative than he. Some of Crists chang ing positions include: Cuba: Crist criti cized 2006 Democrat ic gubernatorial op ponent Jim Davis for visiting Cuba on a con gressional fact-nd ing trip, saying, I know when its time to visit Havana, and its when its free. As an indepen dent Senate candidate in 2010, Crist supported allowing Cuban-Ameri cans unrestricted travel to visit relatives in Cuba. This year, Crist said the U.S. should scrap its 52-year-old trade and travel embargo and an nounced plans for his own fact-nding trip. President Barack Obamas health care overhaul: As a Republi can Senate candidate in 2009, Crist said Obamas plan was cockama mie and nuts and de manded its repeal; as a 2010 independent Sen ate candidate, Crist said there were positive things about the law and it should be xed, not repealed; as a 2014 Democratic gubernato rial candidate, he says its great. Obamas $787 bil lion federal stimulus package: In 2009, Crist asked Floridas con gressional delegation to support the stimu lus and appeared with Obama at a rally push ing for its passage. Later that year he ran a radio ad criticizing Obama for the plan and told CNN I didnt endorse it. He is now defending his support of the plan, saying it saved jobs. Crist opposed oil drilling off Flori das coasts when he ran for governor in 2006. In 2008 he said he was open to the idea after Republican presidential nominee John McCain called for more offshore drilling. Crist hoped to be his vice presidential pick. Crist changed his mind again after the CRIST FROM PAGE A3 2010 BP oil spill. Of course, Scott has his own ip-ops. Af ter campaigning as a hard-liner on illegal immigration, Scott signed bills this year allowing the state Su preme Court to grant law licenses and in state tuition to some Florida residents liv ing in the United States illegally. And last year Scott stunned many when he supported expand ing Medicaid under Obamas health care overhaul. Before he got into politics, the former hospital-chain founder spent millions of his own money to ght the overhaul. The Republican-dominat ed Legislature rejected the Medicaid expan sion. A recent poll showed that most Floridians dont trust Crist or Scott. Rich hopes it is an issue in the Aug. 26 Democratic primary, where she badly trails Crist in fundraising and name recognition. Its a trust factor when you change all of your positions 180 de grees. Its not believ able to people, said Rich, the former state Senate Democratic leader. When youre saying youre one thing, and then youre doing something else, whos to say youre not going to change back the other way once youre elected?

A poll released last week by Survey USA shows Scott holding a tiny 2-percent lead 45 percent to 43 percent over Crist, a former Florida governor, attor ney general and educa tion commissioner. The survey of 576 like ly voters showed Scott with a much bigger lead over Crist, though, when it came to voters 65 years of age and old er (54 percent to 37 per cent). A recent poll at real clearpolitics.com shows Scott with a miniscule 0.8-percent lead over Crist. Scott is no stranger to The Villages or its bil lionaire developer, H. Gary Morse. Although state budgets are usual ly signed in Tallahassee with little fanfare, Scott opted to sign in 2011 during a packed ral ly in The Villages Town Square. Morse gave $100,000 in June to a group sup porting Scotts re-elec tion campaign, on top of $70,000 the develop er gave the governor in May by way of about two dozen companies afliated with Morse.

A.Dr Nic k Przysta wski, DPM www .Floridafoot.comD005522 BENJAMIN WIACEK and GREG KELLER Associated Press ZARZIS, Tunisia The sh ermen of this small North Af rican port are used to catch ing sea bass and sea bream in their nets, but lately theyve been hauling in something else: shipwrecked migrants eeing war-ravaged Libya on imsy boats. Chamseddine Bourassine, a Tunisian sherman in his 50s, and his colleagues are on the front lines of a grow ing humanitarian disaster as waves of migrants take to the sea bound for Italy. They do their best to save who they can, but Bourassine says theyre quickly being over come by this years ood of African and Middle Eastern migrants seeking a new life in Europe. The shermen, who are risking both their lives and livelihoods to rescue the mi grants, often cite a saying by the Prophet Muhammad: Who saves a life, saves all of humanity. Today I have the means to bring back 107 people, but Ill lose 3,000 Tunisian dinars ($1,750), Bourass ine says. Tomorrow I might not be able to. I have people who work with me. If I inter rupt work once, twice, three times, it becomes a heavy burden on my shoulders. He estimates he has saved more than 1,000 migrants on four separate occasions while out in his shing boat, twice since the Libyan upris ing in 2011. Bourassine and other sh ermen dont take any rewards for saving the migrants and he understands why they are trying to leave. But he says its not his job to save them and he feels theres been a lack of support from rescue orga nizations and governmental authorities. Mansour Ben Chouikha, a 50-something sherman, paused while cleaning his rustic blue-and-white shing vessel to describe the horrif ic scenes he has witnessed on the calm, peaceful waters off Zarzis, only 80 kilometers (50 miles) from the Libyan border. He says he has seen oating bodies decomposing in the Mediterranean, some missing their heads. We nd them dead but we dont declare it, said Choui kha. (If) there is a body in the water and we are six or seven hours from the land, we cant get them on board. The shermen dont keep track of the number of mi grants they recover dead or alive. But they are unan imous in saying the num bers are rising. Last week two bodies were pulled out the water off the nearby coastal resort of Djerba. The other day, with my boat, I brought back 107 peo ple, three or four died before my eyes, they fell in the wa ter and they didnt know how to swim. My stability (of the boat) didnt allow me to act. One hundred and seven peo ple represent a great danger for my crew, Bourassine said. The shermen complain that the authorities are turn ing a blind eye. The shermen say theyve seen up 30 boats of migrants leaving each day for Italy, each with a capacity of between 50 and 250 people, but its dif cult to get exact numbers.

MOHAMMED DARAGHMEH Associated Press CAIRO Israel and the Hamas militant group accepted an Egyptian cease-re pro posal Sunday, clearing the way for the resump tion of talks on a longterm truce to end a month of heavy ghting in the Gaza Strip that has taken nearly 2,000 lives. The announcement marked the second time in less than a week that the bitter enemies had agreed to Egyptian me diation. A similar threeday truce last week collapsed in renewed violence over the week end. The truce took effect at midnight, preceded by heavy rocket re to ward Israel. In Cairo, the Egyp tian Foreign Minis try said the cease-re would allow humani tarian aid into battered Gaza neighborhoods and the reopening of indirect talks on a more lasting and comprehen sive deal. Hamas is seeking an end to the Israeli-Egyp tian blockade against Gaza, while Israel wants Hamas to dismantle its formidable arsenal of rockets and other weap ons. Palestinian negotia tors accepted the pro posal early Sunday after meeting with Egyptian ofcials throughout the weekend. Israeli of cials concurred lat er. Both delegations are back in Cairo. Qais Abdelkarim, a member of the Pales tinian delegation, said indirect talks with the Israelis would begin Monday with the hope of reaching a lasting cease-re. The goal, he added, was to end the blockade, which he called the reason for the war. The recent ghting has been the heavi est between Israel and Hamas since Hamas took control of Gaza in 2007. More than 1,900 Palestinians have been killed, including hun dreds of civilians. On the Israeli side, 67 people have been killed, including three civil ians. Nearly 10,000 peo ple have been wound ed and thousands of homes destroyed. The ghting ended in a three-day ceasere last Tuesday. Egypt had hoped to use that truce to mediate a longterm deal. But when it expired, militants re sumed their rocket re, sparking Israeli repri sals. The violence con tinued throughout the weekend, including a burst of ghting late Sunday ahead of the ex pected cease-re. The Israeli military re ported some 30 rock et attacks from Gaza on Sunday. Palestinian medical ofcials said seven people were killed in Israeli airstrikes, in cluding the bodyguard of a Hamas leader, the medical ofcials said.

Box 490007 Leesburg, FL 34749-0007 By fax to: 325-365-1951 I always felt like a little bit of an imposter in college. It wasnt that I was straight and a signicant percentage of the Bryn Mawr population loved both Virginia Woolf and Emily Dickinson (take whatever infer ence you want from that ) It wasnt that I was pro-life and most of my sister students were busy protecting their ovaries from my rosaries. It wasnt that I loved football, and the only Eagles they were in terested in were the ones on the endangered species list. The real reason I felt as if I didnt truly belong was the suspi cion that I wasnt as smart as the budding Madame Curies I sat next to in class. This stems from a conversation I had freshman year with a guidance counsel or who blithely told me that Bryn Mawr, a womens liberal arts col lege in Pennsylvania, had admit ted me despite my SAT scores. Seeing the distressed look on my freshman-10 padded face, she immediately added we liked that you took hard courses, that you participated in activities, that you exceeded beyond your natural abilities. That last bit didnt exactly raise my spirits. Here was an of cial representative of my dream school, my rst choice, saying that my abysmal 1240 SATs in dicated a kinship with Pebbles Flintstone but did not blind them to my other qualities. I felt a bit like Tarzan must have felt when they took him from the jungle, taught him a few prepositions and said we can work with this! Curiously, none of this made me resent the importance of standardized testing, or wish that it didnt exist. What it did do was put steel in my spine and make me determined to match, accomplishment for accom plishment, my better-pedigreed classmates. Competition is good, and nding out Id been chosen despite my less-than-impres sive test scores made me grateful for the opportunity to shine. This Tarzan was not going to be limit ed to vine swinging. My reaction was, apparent ly, unique. A lot of people oppose standardized tests because of some general (and vague) sense of unfairness. Ive been told that the SATs are essentially useless relics of an elitist past, one that rewards afuence and cultural homoge neity, not to mention the ability to memorize facts and numbers. And now, sadly, my exalted alma mater has decided to agree with them. Effective immediately, Bryn Mawr will no longer consid er SATs in admission decisions. Miss 1240 thinks this is a big mistake. While Ive heard the old canards about standardized tests being prepared by people who dont get the realities of under privileged or minority kids, that doesnt wash with me for two im portant reasons. First, a brain is race neutral and bank-account blind. Sure, some kids have the benet of a better education than others be cause of money or the lack there of, but standardized tests are de signed to see our aptitude for learning, not what weve already been taught. I was a teacher for ve consequential years in three afuent private schools, and the quality of the brains I taught var ied, but never because Sloane had more money than Susie or Grayson lived in Merion and Je rome came from Mantua. Second, and more important ly, telling a student that objective standards dont matter is tanta mount to telling them they have nothing to prove and that were going all Billy Joel on them, as in, we love you just the way you are. The problem is, we dont. Or at least, we shouldnt. This is the clas sic give everyone a trophy men tality, the idea that you deserve an award just for showing up. While its good to encour age kids to diversify and appre ciate their special, native skills, there is something extremely im portant in holding them to spe cic standards of performance (hence the standardized in standardized test). It was good that the academ ic counselor at Bryn Mawr recog nized I was not the sum total of my numerical scores (and thank God she didnt see my LSAT scores a few years later). I very much appreciated hearing that I was one small sh in a pond with some swimmers who were more naturally gifted than I was. The message was: you have to earn this, Christine. Of course, you might say that the message I should have gotten was the exact opposite, namely, that I was more important than some standardized label and that the Bryn Mawrtyrs (cute, eh?) were right to look beyond the ob jective metrics and accept me for my more unique attributes. But the fact is that colleges will always look at those attributes because they only have a limited number of spaces and you have to somehow decide between blonde lacrosse player with per fect SATs and brunette debating society president with perfect SATs. There is always room for the things that make us as excep tional and irreplaceable as indi vidual snowakes in an other wise monolithic drift. But measuring up to some one elses standards has some value in a world where trophies are ubiquitous. Because theres a reason Billy Joel was a great songwriter and not an admis sions director.

Flowers MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE Standardized tests have value N o one in Libya can win. Enough is enough. I have lost hope in Liby ans. That is the verdict of Mah moud Okok, a civil engineer in his thirties, who is eeing his country with his family. Increasingly, it is also the mindset of Amer icans confronted with the harsh realities of President Barack Obamas foreign policy. Rel atively low-cost interventions, like the one he launched over Libya in 2011, often seem at tractive upfront. They avoid the staggering nancial toll of massive operations like the in vasion of Iraq. But they can also increase the risks of conict without delivering any of the rewards of victory. In the run-up to the intervention, Obama warned that the regime of Moammar Gad ha wanted to massacre Benghazis more pro-Western rebels like rats. With neighbor ing Egypt in a precarious, unstable position at the time, it seemed reasonable to take steps against a full-blown Libyan civil war. Perhaps the administration also contemplated the downside of a huge wave of refugees owing from Libya into the economically weak coun tries of Southern Europe. So the intervention began. But as weve learned everywhere from Iraq and Syria to Egypt and Somalia, when it comes to todays revolutionaries, making up for decades with out the institutions of a strong civil society isnt that easy. Instead, factionalism, militias, chaos and bloody stalemates dene the scene. And now, Libya is becoming a Somalia on the Medi terranean. Libya is so fragmented and fac tionalized that it is hard to see what control physically or politically could be exert ed anytime soon, the Wilson Centers Robin Wright told NBC News. The danger is Libya could become a failed state. In some ways it is bordering on that already. Asked for comment, the spokesman for the Libyan Embassy in London replied: We sim ply do not know what is going on. The militias are all mad. Libyas proximity to Europe makes it some thing of a special case because anything that threatens Europes fragile economies could send the world economy into another tail spin. Nevertheless, theres little indication that America has the will or the talent necessary to engage in the grueling, semicolonial work of guiding a civil war toward a workable peace. Obama may have gotten us into this mess, and many of us dont have the stomach for trying to nd a way out. Distributed by MCT Information Services.

After a year of dull nishes at the majors, the PGA Champi onship was turning into quite a shootout.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and ev eryone affected by this tragedy. Regan Smith drove Stewarts car instead and nished 35th after having to start from the back of the 43-car eld and getting caught in a late accident. It was the second straight time Stewart missed the race at The Glen, where he has a NASCAR-record ve victories. He suffered a broken leg in a sprint car accident in Iowa days before the Cup race and missed the rest of the season. There were three re starts in the decisive closing laps. Allmendinger got the jump on Ambrose in the rst one with nine laps to go, but Jimmie Johnson was bumped in the rst turn and his No. 48 spun around, collecting two other cars and precipitating a caution. The race restart ed again with ve laps left and both Ambrose and Allmendinger were side-by-side through the esses, banging against each other be fore Ambrose took the lead in the chicane as hes done so many times in the past, dirt ying as both cars hit the grass. Allmendinger wasnt done, regaining the lead on the next lap as he outbraked the Aus tralian into turn 1 be fore a crash involving Denny Hamlin caused another red ag with four laps left. The 90-lap race on the 2.45-mile layout was red-agged for 1 hour, 21 minutes just past the midpoint af ter a violent crash in volving Ryan Newman and Michael McDow ell that involved three other cars. Newmans Chev rolet spun hard into the Armco barrier lin ing the track, ripping a big hole in the barri ers metal. The car then spun around twice and went back across the racing surface, collect ing McDowell in his No. 95, which incurred heavy damage in the rear. Newman, Mc Dowell and Alex Bow man were treated in the ineld care center and released. Allmendinger gained the lead on lap 64 af ter pit stops, with Kurt Busch and Ambrose close behind. Ambrose outbraked Busch into Turn 1 for second two laps lat er and set his sights on Allmendinger, who had a 2-second lead that was wiped out by the late stoppages. Jeff Gordon start ed from the pole and led the rst 29 laps, holding Ambrose at bay. But Gordons en gine died on lap 50 as he lost all power and couldnt get it rered. NASCAR FROM PAGE B1 DERIK HAMILTON / AP A.J. Allmendinger (47) takes the checkered ag to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race at Watkins Glen International, Sunday in Watkins Glen N.Y. The Rays lost for only the fth time in their last 23 road games. They trail Kansas City by 6 1/2 games in the race for the second AL wild card. Tampa Bay grabbed a 2-1 lead in the sev enth inning. Pinch-hit ter Brandon Guyer got it started with a lead off single against Neil Ramirez, who returned from the disabled list before the game. Guyer stole second and moved to third on a groundout before Des mond Jennings drove him in with a double. The Cubs respond ed with a two-out ral ly in the bottom half against Grant Balfour. Sweeney doubled and scored on Chris Cogh lans triple. Rays right-hander Alex Cobb pitched six innings of one-run ball. He allowed six hits, struck out six and walked none. Travis Wood matched Cobb with a strong performance for the Cubs. The lefthander allowed an un earned run and four hits in six innings, but remains winless in his last 10 starts. Wood, one of the best hitting pitch ers in the majors, also helped himself with a one-out single in the fth. He moved up on a groundout and scored on Baezs single to cen ter. Baezs run-scoring hit atoned for an error in the top half that al lowed a run to score. Curt Casali started the inning with a dou ble for the Rays sec ond hit of the game. Logan Forsythe walked with one out before Jennings hit a slow roller to second base. The charging Baez re trieved the ball in time to make the play, only to have his off-balance throw sail wide of rst base. RAYS FROM PAGE B1 spots in the defensive backeld, including nickel corner. Ive practiced (safe ty) the last couple of years now, said Wilson, who had two intercep tions and 39 tackles last season. So Im nally going to have a chance to get out there and play safety and show everybody what I can do and hopefully help my team. There are still some things Ive got to get used to at safety but thats what the rest of these preseason games are for and the rest of this camp is for. Veteran safety Lou is Delmas, who was signed as a free agent back in March, is com ing off a stellar season in Detroit and will be asked to help Wilson in his transition. Delmas and the rest of the de fensive starters also are trying to bounce back from a shaky outing in Atlanta on Friday night in the preseason opener against the Falcons. Atlanta put together a 15-play scoring drive in the rst quarter that ate up more than nine min utes and resulted in the tying touchdown. There were two costly penal ties on the defense, one on Delmas for illegal contact that negated a sack by linebacker Koa Misi and one on line backer Philip Wheeler for roughing the pass er that set up the touch down run. I denitely didnt like to see that and again we were very generous to them, coach Joe Phil bin said. We had a cou ple of penalties on the drive and we had some opportunities where we had a great chance to get off the eld but we didnt execute well enough and we werent disciplined enough not to get called on a couple of ags and that hurt us. They put together a good drive so obvious ly it was not an impres sive performance, that opening drive defen sively. Philbin, in keeping with his practice, would not commit to Wil son taking Jones spot at starting strong safe ty, but he did point out some of the things he likes about the fourthyear defensive back out of Montana. Hes had a lot of train ing there and hes got ten a lot of reps at that position over a long pe riod of time, he said. I think he knows the de fense very well and not unlike any other posi tion were looking for him to execute the tech niques, the responsibil ities, the coverage, the adjustments and the checks that need to be made on a consistent basis. NOTES: The team an nounced before prac tice that defensive tack le A.J. Francis (knee) will miss extended prac tice time. ... Corner back Cortland Finnegan was the only player not present. ... Second-year running back Mike Gil lislee had an ice pack on his left knee and missed most of prac tice. ... Backup offensive tackle Jason Fox left the eld accompanied by a trainer. MIAMI FROM PAGE B1 one shot back at 14 un der. Fowler got off to a rocky start, taking bogey at the second hole after driving into a creek. But he capped a run of three straight birdies by chip ping from 20 feet at No. 5, snapping what was then a ve-way tie for the lead. Fowler was a run ner-up at both the U.S. Open and the British Open, and tied for fth at the Masters. This was shaping up as his best chance yet at his rst major title; if nothing else, it was a lot more exciting that the rst three. Bubba Watson pulled away to win the Mas ters, Martin Kaymer cruised to an eightshot win at Pinehurst, and McIlroy took a sixshot lead to the nal day at Royal Liverpool and was never serious ly challenged. Coming off his victo ries in the Open and at Firestone, McIlroy teed off with a one-stroke lead. Boy Wonder plod ded through much of front nine, taking a cou ple of bogeys while oth ers were charging up the board. A birdie at the par-5 seventh stead ied his stroke, and the eagle got him right back in the thick of things. Ernie Els and Jimmy Walker both shot 6-un der 65s, but it didnt look as though their 11-under 273s were go ing to be quite enough. Austrias Bernd Wies berger, playing in the nal group with McIlory, faded with a 1-over 36 on the front side. Play was suspend ed for nearly two hours when a storm swept through the club on the outskirts of Louisville. Workers brought out squeegees, trying fu riously to push stand ing water off the course. Towels were used to dry the tee boxes. About an inch of rain fell in 45 minutes, but it took longer to get the course back in play ing shape. The sun came out after the rain passed, giving it the feel of a sauna as the tem perature climbed to ward the upper 80s. During the 1-hour, 51-minute delay, ducks wallowed in an im promptu creek run ning down the middle of a fairway. Sergio Gar cia rolled up his pants and ed to the cover of the clubhouse, splash ing along the way. Fowl er had some fun with Billy Horschel, who was walking around bare footed, having removed his soaked socks and shoes. RORY FROM PAGE B1

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL MARK SCHMETZER Associated Press CINCINNATI Devin Mesoraco hit his third grand slam of the season and drove in six runs, and the Cincinna ti Reds salvaged the nale of a three-game se ries against the Miami Marlins with a 7-2 win on Sunday. Brad Hand walked Todd Frazier with the bases loaded in the fth to break a 2-all tie. Me soraco followed with his second homer of the game and 20th of the season, a 371-foot drive into the left-eld seats. Mesoraco leads all major league catch ers in home runs and the National League in grand slams. He is 6 for 7 (.857) with the bases loaded and is the sixth player in Reds history to hit three slams in one season the rst since Chris Sabo in 1993. The fth-inning out burst gave Johnny Cue to (14-6) some breathing room. In eight innings, he allowed ve hits two homers with two walks and nine strike outs. He improved to 6-0 in his last seven starts. Hand (2-4) allowed ve hits and seven runs with three walks all of them in the fth and two strikeouts. Giancarlo Stanton, the NLs home run and RBI leader, lined his 29th homer with two outs in the rst for a 1-0 Miami lead. Right-elder Jay Bruce made a leaping catch in the eighth to rob Stan ton of a second homer. Mesoraco, who drove in a career-high six runs, gave the Reds a 2-1 lead in the rst with his rst in 10 games since July 30, a 390-foot blast that bounced off the roof of the Cincin nati bullpen in left-cen ter with Bruce on rst and two outs. Casey McGehee tied the game with his third homer of the year, a 383foot shot to left with one out in the fourth. The Marlins, who took a series from St. Louis in early July for the rst time since 2009, will try to make it two straight over the Cardinals. Their three-game set in Miami begins Mon day with right-hander Tom Koehler taking the mound. DAVID KOHL / AP Cincinnati Reds Devin Mesoraco, right, hits a grand slam home run off Miami Marlins starting pitcher Brad Hand in the rst inning on Sunday in Cincinnati. MICHAEL CONROY / AP NCAA President Mark Emmert speaks on Thursday at NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis. COLLEGE ATHLETICS MICHAEL MAROT Associated Press Mark Emmert said Sunday that the NCAA will appeal a ruling that opens the door for college athletes to receive some of the money they help gen erate in major sports. In the NCAA pres idents rst public comments since Fri days ruling, Emmert told ABCs This Week With George Stepha nopoulos that college sports largest govern ing body found a lot in the decision that was admirable and some parts they disagreed with so strongly that they could not let it go unchallenged in court. Yes, at least in part we will, Emmert said when asked whether the NCAA planned an appeal. No one on our le gal team or the col lege conferences le gal teams think this is a violation of antitrust laws and we need to get that settled in the courts. The NCAAs decision to challenge the ruling is hardly a surprise. Donald Remy, the or ganizations chief legal ofcer, had repeated ly said that if the NCAA lost, it would appeal the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court if needed. Many legal experts think this case could be heading that direction, though its unclear whether the nations highest court would take it. We remain con dent that the NCAA has not violated the antitrust laws and in tend to appeal, Remy said in a statement re leased following the television show. We will also be seek ing clarity from the dis trict court on some de tails of its ruling. Joseph Farelli, an at torney with the New York-based law rm of Pitta & Giblin, said the NCAA didnt have a choice after U.S. Dis trict Judge Claudia Wilken shot down the NCAAs argument that its model of amateur ism was the only way to run college sports. Emmert: NCAA will appeal OBannon case TENNIS Mesoracos grand slam paces Reds to 7-2 victory over Marlins BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer NEW YORK Carlos Carrasco rejoined the Cleveland rotation in ne fashion by pitching ve dominant innings and the Indi ans nearly tossed another shut out at Yankee Stadium, beating New York 4-1 Sunday. Jacoby Ellsbury homered with two outs in the ninth off Indi ans closer Cody Allen, ending New Yorks season-worst score less streak at 19 innings. The shot let the Yankees avoid a du bious distinction not since 1999 had they been blanked in two straight games. Jason Kipnis got three hits and scored three runs as the Indians nished 4-3 against New York only twice in the last 22 years has Cleveland taken the season series. A day after Cleveland pitch ers combined on a ve-hit shut out and struck out 15 Yankees, Carrasco (4-4) and four relievers threw another ve-hitter. Carrasco allowed just two sin gles, walked none, struck out four and retired his last 11 bat ters. Pitching in place of the re cently demoted Danny Sala zar, Carrasco made his rst start since being banished to the bull pen in late April. Carrasco had gone 0-12 in 17 starts since 2011, and missed the 2012 season while recover ing from Tommy John surgery. He threw from the stretch all game, ring a 96 mph with his rst pitch, and met catcher Yan Gomes for hand slaps and back pats outside the dugout after the nal out in the fth. Cleveland evened its record at 59-59 by taking advantage of a surprisingly shaky Hiroki Kuroda (7-8). Normally one of baseballs best control pitchers, he walked a season-high four, hit a batter and threw a wild pitch. Kuroda issued his rst bas es-loaded walk since he was a ma jor league rookie in 2008. Gomes drew that walk for a 3-0 lead in the fth and added an RBI single in the seventh. Carrasco, Indians slow down Yankees again BILL KOSTROUN / AP New York Yankees Mark Teixeira (25) is out at second as Cleveland Indians shortstop Jose Ramirez throws to rst for the double play on Carlos Beltran to end the seventh inning on Sunday at Yankee Stadium in New York. Associated Press TORONTO Jo-Wil fried Tsonga won the Rogers Cup on Sunday, beating second-seeded Roger Federer 7-5, 7-6 (3) for his fourth straight victory over a high er-seeded opponent. The 13th-seed ed Frenchman won his rst ATP Tour ti tle of the season and 11th overall. He beat top-ranked Novak Djokovic on Thursday, eighth-seeded Andy Murray on Friday and seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov on Saturday. Tsonga improved to 5-11 against Federer. Federer dropped to 2-5 in nals this sea son, with his victories coming in Dubai and Halle. In the doubles nal, Bruno Soares Alexan der Peya topped Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Meloof 6-4, 6-3.

A Halif ax Media Group Compan y NFL Associated Press BEREA, Ohio The Cleveland Browns quarterback derby is heading down the homestretch. Coach Mike Pettine said Sunday he plans to name his starting quar terback shortly after the teams Aug. 18 pre season game in Wash ington. The winner of the competition between Brian Hoyer and rook ie Johnny Manziel will start Clevelands third preseason contest Aug. 23 at home against the Rams and sit out its nal game Aug. 28 against Chicago. I wouldnt say its 1,000 percent etched in stone, but I would like it decided before the third preseason game, Pettine said. If we have a starter that gets a lot of time in that game, then has all the prac tice time after that, we feel like hell be ready to go for the opener (Sept. 7 in Pittsburgh). Hoyer tops the Browns ofcial depth chart, but he will split rst-team snaps with 2012 Heisman Tro phy winner Manziel at training camp this week. Pettine declined to say which play er would start Cleve lands next preseason game, a nationally tele vised matchup with the Redskins, calling the battle too close to call. If there was a clearcut favorite at this point, it would proba bly mean one of them was not playing well, the rst-year coach said. Thats not the case here. I think weve got two guys that could be full-time NFL start ers. It will all come down to who gives us the best chance to win. Thats the bottom line. GOLF GREG JOHNSON Associated Press BELMONT, Mich. Mirim Lee won the Meijer LPGA Classic on Sunday for her rst LPGA Tour victory, beat ing fellow South Korean player Inbee Park with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff. The long-hitting Lee drove into greenside bunker on the second extra hole the short par-4 17th and blast ed out to 5 feet. After Parks 15-foot birdie try lipped out, Lee holed her putt for the victory. They each parred the 18th to open the play off. Parks approach shot hit the cup on the way past and she missed a 15-foot bird ie try. Lee two-putted from 35 feet. The 23-year-old Lee, a rookie on the LPGA Tour, closed with a 2-under 69 to match Park at 14-un der 270. Park, a 10-time tour winner, nished with a 70. Lee is projected to jump to 29th in the world ranking. Norways Suzann Pet tersen was a stroke back after a 69. With three holes to play, Park, Pettersen and Lee were tied for the lead 14 under, but Pettersen had tree and sand troubles and made a bogey at 16 to fall a shot behind. Park and Lee each missed birdie chances at the 17th. On the 18th, Lee two-putted for par from 40 feet, and Park made a 6-foot par putt. Pettersen, who was playing in the group in front of Park for the day, birdied the rst two holes and eagled the par-5 fth hitting a 3-wood shot to 6 feet to tie Park at 15 under.

Instead of heading to the vending machine, the human resource manag er for the city of Lynch burg hops on an active work station a tread mill with an attached desk and computer that allows users to walk and work si multaneously. I signed up for the 3 oclock slot, when I would normally get up and have a snack, Brown said. It makes a difference for me. This spring, the Central Virginia Health District spent $16,000 a portion of the funding provided by the Virginia Department of Health Healthy Eating and Active Living Program to purchase 10 tread mill desks. The treadmill desks are part of an initiative spear headed by Work Healthy Lynchburg, a coalition comprised of local busi ness leaders that aims to help companies keep their employees healthy. Studies have shown that a healthy workforce is a productive one. Work Healthy Lynch burg wants to test the the ory rsthand, and see if, in the long-run, it also can help decrease employers healthcare costs. Work Healthy Lynch burg is an offshoot of Live Healthy Lynchburg, launched by former may or Joan Foster in 2012 to address local health con cerns. I do believe we will see improved health and clar ity, concentration and energy levels, Lynch burg Regional Chamber of Commerces Christine Kennedy said. The cham ber is one of the driving forces behind the latest effort to develop healthy workplaces. On June 16, treadmill desks were installed and workplace studies begun at Bank of the James, City Hall and Lynchburgs De partment of Human Ser vices; two were installed at Genworth because of its size. The desks are free to companies. This is really just to get people moving, said Brown, as she led the way recently to a council chamber-turned-treadmill room. Any type of stand ing or moving is what we want to encourage. Within the past week, Work Healthy Lynchburg announced the acquisi tion of 10 more treadmill desks to add to the three that have yet to be distrib uted. In August, four will be given to health depart ments in Amherst, Ap pomattox, Bedford and Campbell counties. This is also a way for us to incorporate worksite wellness among our em ployees, said Leslie Ho glund, senior health ed ucator with the Central Virginia Health District. The remaining tread mill desks will go to com panies whose employees have high stress, but sed entary jobs.

At the Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley, its not uncommon to see patients asleep in their wheelchairs by the saltwa ter-sh tank, or out for a stroll around a pasture lled with grass-grazing an imals like goats and llamas. Director Ellen Levinson said while the merits of pet therapy have been adopted and used at various skilled nursing facilities across the country, its rare to nd chickens and alpacas at a site. At the 120-bed nursing home, which houses a specialized memo ry-support unit for those with severe dementia and other conditions that affect the memory, staff members make time to ensure their patients interact with the animals whenever possible. This is my philosophy: A lot of places say, We have pet therapy, and what they have is someone who brings a dog in on a leash once a week, she said. If I were living here, that would make me more misera ble. Its not like real life. Its not like having a dog, and then youre just tempted with what you could have all the time. Levinson developed animal ther apy and even llama psychology further at her facility to bring bright ness to patients days. Levinson, an animal lover, launched the program, which now has sh, an alpaca, dogs and goats, but it initially started out Exotic animals help Mass. nursing home patients BOB WHITAKER / AP Virginia Hochella, a resident at Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley in Littleton, Mass., visits with Travis, a llama the center uses for pet therapy.

The group has yet to determine which businesses will receive the desks. Work Healthy Lynchburg al ready has a waiting list. The response so far has been positive. What we are hearing so far is that timeslots are full. People want activity, and what this tells us is that we are on to something, Kenne dy said. Employees reserve the treadmill desk when it suits them, re cord their perceived stress and productivi ty levels on a scale of 1 to 10 before and after walking, stroll at their own pace and, at city hall, can work on ev erything from email to in-house training while using the desk. Anything that we can to do to help fa cilitate health man agement and wellness in the workplace is a good thing, said Bon nie Svrcek, Lynchburgs deputy city manager. The city is one of the major partners in the Work Healthy Lynch burg initiative. Ivetta Campbell, Lynchburg City admin istrative services associ ate, has used the tread mill desk every day of the week since it was installed in city hall. Its gone so smooth ly, shes taken to bring ing a ash drive down to the rst oor with her so she can contin ue working on what she was doing up on the third oor. I think its a person al thing, Campbell said recently, as she walked in her dress and run ning shoes. It depends on your priorities. It may not be for every body. But for me its just a good break from the desk and I think its worthwhile. Shes one of 25 peo ple in city hall and 70 across the city who use the work sta tion during work hours. Work Healthy Lynch burg encouraged all companies to design their own treadmill desk schedules and workspace, one that would t their unique work culture. The only require ments were the preand post-participation sur veys, which the health department will to de termine the impacts of the active work stations. Prior to using the tread mill desks, employees recorded baseline data such as high blood pres sure, body mass index and chronic conditions like diabetes. At the end, the same data will be collected.

The local Life Care Center, run through the national group Life Care Centers of Amer ica, with 200 facilities across the country, has a policy to resort rarely to medications for un ruly residents. Levinson said she cant attribute all of her staffs success to the presence of animals, but she says they help. I wouldnt attribute it directly to the animals, but to the idea there are ways to make life pleas ant beyond just giving (the residents) a pill, she said. A pill is a very last resort. Thats why we sit out on the porch with them, instead of saying were too busy. I tell staff, you have to nd time. This spring, the Life Care Center of Nasho ba Valley was awarded a perfect score by the state Department of Pub lic Health in a survey of nursing homes and se nior-care providers. Levinson said having animals on site plays a role in making her fa cility more enjoyable. It also helps visiting fami ly members feel more at ease, she said, by allow ing them a chance to talk about something other than sickness and health in a medical setting. Program Director Er ica Labb, who oversees the oor, said residents come into the Life Care Center of all ages with family who havent pre pared for this stage. Levinson said thats why she encourages family members visiting, and even her staff to get bet ter prepared for the end while theyre on site. According to Kaiser Health News, in 2011, Medicare spending reached close to $554 billion, which amounted to 21 percent of the total spent on U.S. health care in that year. Of that $554 billion, Medicare spent 28 percent, or about $170 billion, on patients last six months of life. Levinson said some people as young as 55 de velop dementia or other memory-based diseas es like Alzheimers, and its never too early to pre pare for that stage. She said less than half the time, she nds patients who dont have a health care proxy designated or a listing of what they want at the end of life. People avoid those discussions, she said. Our enthusiasm stems from this. ... (Family will) say, I have no idea what mom would have want ed. (We say) How sad. You could have. At the Life Care Cen ter, though, Levin LLAMAS FROM PAGE C1 son said her facility adopts a pro-animal policy to make a stay in Littleton as pleas ant as possible. In the memory-sup port room, next to a hand-painted mural on the wall of an un derwater ocean scene, a room of about 30 people recently sat quietly. Some knit ted. Others stared out the window, toward a chicken coop the latest addition to the facilitys animal king dom off Foster Street. The idea for the chickens is that peo ple who have mild, mid-stage demen tia to late-stage, are too agitated and dis tracted to sit still and do a craft project or a word game or listen to a music program, Levinson said. (With the animals), theres always something to look at, and its life that theyre looking at. BOB WHITAKER / AP Nicole Burak shows Travis, a pet therapy llama, to resident Bill Machlemer, right, at Life Care Center. JOHN ROGERS Associated Press LOS ANGELES Michael Gross never planned on join ing the front lines of the ght against cancer. The guy who once put a terried-looking dog on the cover of National Lampoon magazine with a gun to its head and the words, If You Dont Buy This Magazine, Well Kill This Dog, was only thinking hed have a little fun with his art students when he told them to draw a hand with a raised middle nger. Makes a dramatic state ment and teaches a little about anatomy, the gruff, gravelly voiced artist quipped one recent morning as he sat on the deck of his beachfront bungalow in Oceans ide, sipping coffee. It was only after he re viewed the drawings that Gross, who is dying of kid ney cancer, had one of those white-light bursts of inspira tion: I said to myself this is really funny. And I said this also makes a nice statement about how I feel about can cer. So the artist who spent a career corralling others to work with him on magazine covers and lms began call ing in favors from muralists, abstract expressionists, illus trators and others. Whether they worked in oil or acryl ic, pen or pencil, they would all do the same thing: Create a drawing of a hand with a raised middle nger. Having gathered more than 30, he plans to organize them into a touring gallery show this fall, eventually sell them and also screen some onto T-shirts and limited-edi tion prints for sale. He plans to donate whatever money is raised to Scripps Healths cancer-treatment programs. The works run the gam ut from Gross own popart drawing of a green hand with a raised middle n ger to graphic designer Tra cy Belchers nude woman in prole ipping somebody off. Everett Peck, who creat ed the popular cartoon char acter for the 1990s TV series Duckman: Private Dick/ Family Man, decided to go with a leering, cigar-chomp ing, eight-ngered spider. I just thought if one n ger is good enough, then sev en more is better, laughed Peck. I wish it were deeper than that, but thats about it. Like others, Peck says he was attered to be asked for a drawing. Gross is a legendary gure in art circles, not only for his quirky, oversized per sonality but for his impact on popular culture. When New Yorks presti gious Pratt Institute held a 125th anniversary celebra tion two years ago it surveyed people for their thoughts on the 125 most admired icons created by alumni.

When the American Society of Magazine Editors released its list of the top 40 magazine covers, the artists dog with the gun to its head was No. 7, not bad for an illustration that wasnt even planned for the cover. We were just going to do it as a subscrip tion ad in the maga zine, recalled Gross, who was National Lampoons art direc tor. Then we thought the next one would be, OK, we killed the dog. Now were going to kill the cat. We really mean it. Fortunately, he learned the humor magazines editors were planning an en tire issue making fun of death. The dog was promoted. From the Lampoon, the New York-born art ist segued into produc ing lms, everything from hits like Ghost busters to ops like the Sylvester Stallone turkey Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot. The lms brought him to California, where he eventual ly retired to a career of curating and offer ing private art lessons. Hed recently been di agnosed with termi nal cancer when he gave his students the raised-nger assign ment. Ive got a year or two, they tell me. So I thought, Well, lets do some new things and have some fun. Among Gross art students is popular veteran San Diego ra dio personality Mad ison, who had orga nized a pair of benet concerts for Scripps Loren Nancarrow Healing Garden Proj ect, an ambitious ef fort named for the late San Diego news an chor who died of can cer. The program pro vides a calm garden setting for people un dergoing radiation treatment at Scripps, as well as funds for cancer-related ther apies not covered by insurance. If enough money is raised the en tire garden will eventu ally be named for Nan carrow. CANCER FROM PAGE C2 TAYA FLORES Associated Press LAFAYETTE, Ind. Yoga mats out and heads bowed, about 10 women listened intently as Tam my Douglas said a prayer aloud. The opening prayer set the tone for the Saturday PraiseMoves class, which is marketed as a Christian alternative to yoga. The women met in the sanctuary of The Church, a newer faith community that meets on the south side of La fayette. After a set of warm-up exercises, the Christian yoga alternative began. They stretched in pos tures instead of yoga poses. Gone was down ward-facing dog and in its stead, women glid ed gracefully into tent pose. They still focused on breathing, adhering to constant reminders from Douglas to inhale and exhale. However, the mood was intentionally reli gious in nature as Doug las read correspond ing scriptures while the women lingered in their postures. By the end, as they lay supine in a refuge posture instead of the traditional yoga corpse pose, Douglas assistants laid warmed cloths soaked in laven der essential oil over the faces of the women to aid relaxation. After being certied to teach PraiseMoves by the programs found er and director, Laurette Willis, in Tulsa, Okla homa, Douglas start ed teaching local class es in mid-June. Douglas and Dan Reece, pastor of The Church where she attends and also serves as worship lead er, believe that an alter native to yoga is needed because yoga is incom patible with Christian teaching. Yoga is a mystic and ascetic Hindu discipline for achieving union with supreme spirits through works, mean ing salvation through works, Douglas wrote in an email. As Chris tians we cannot re ceive salvation through works but by accepting Jesus Christ. Some local yoga prac titioners disagree. Some say yoga is spiritual but not religious and open to people of all faiths. Others say they, too, are Christians and practice yoga as a way to con nect to the Judeo-Chris tian God. The new classes res urrect a standard yoga controversy, which brings into question the true spiritual nature of the increasingly popu lar discipline. Jacqueline Allen-Mag ers, yoga teacher and owner of Community Yoga in West Lafayette, said although yoga has spiritual and philosoph ical branches, the prac tice of yoga in America is primarily secular focusing on the physical or asana branch. This secularization of yoga has attracted backlash from the advo cacy organization Hin du American Founda tion. In 2010, the group created a national cam paign called Take Back Yoga to emphasize yo gas debt to the ancient faith tradition. The organization ar gued that Western prac titioners are comfort able with ascribing yoga to ancient Indian spiri tuality but not speci cally Hinduism. From asanas named after Hindu Gods to the shared goal of mok sha to the common plu ralistic philosophy, the Hindu roots of yoga seem difcult to deny, according to a state ment from the organi zations website. Yet, more often than not, many Western yoga practitioners are aghast at the very suggestion that the cherished spir itual practice of yoga is rmly grounded in Hin du philosophy. PraiseMoves reignites debate over yogas nature MICHAEL HEINZ / AP Instructor Tammy Douglas leads during a PraiseMoves class at The Church in Lafayette, Ind.

HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DEAR ABBY: It disturbs me greatly that we keep reading about parents leaving their children in cars, whether it be ab sentmindedness, stress or downright intention al. It needs to stop. Im hoping car man ufacturers can come up with an idea may be a sensor that once the doors are closed and locked, should there be motion or a sound in the vehicle, the windows would automatically open, giving a passer-by a chance to see inside and maybe save a pre cious life. FRUSTRATED BY PREMATURE ANGELS DEAR FRUSTRATED: You are not the only one who is disturbed by these re cent tragedies. They are on the minds of a lot of people lately. Todays mail brought a sugges tion from another read er who is hoping to put an end to the loss of these fragile young lives. A mother in Westland, Michigan, offered this: DEAR ABBY: I have a suggestion for parents. TALK to your children when they are in the car with you. I always carried on a conversa tion, sang or counted to my kids, even new borns, and continued through the years they were rear-facing and for ward-facing. It helped them to learn their ABCs, count, and even know where streets were. It was also a running re minder that someone very special was with me. I never listened to the radio, unless it was nursery rhymes on DVD or toddler songs. It not only helped me teach my children, but it also made driving fun and safe for the tiny passen gers in my car. D.W.K. READERS: A nonprof it group called KidsAnd Cars suggests that par ents place something they will need (when ex iting the vehicle), such as a cellphone, handbag or briefcase, near the child in the back seat. Or keep a large stuffed animal in the childs car seat when its not occupied. When the child is in the car seat, place the stuffed animal in the front pas senger seat as a remind er that the child is in the back. And tell the childs day care center or baby sitter that they will al ways be called if your child isnt coming in as scheduled. If the child is absent without an ex planation, the day care center or baby sitter is expected to contact a parent or another desig nated caregiver. I would not recom mend an automatic de vice because it could fail. DEAR ABBY: I am friends with a couple who have been married for three years. I have worked with the wife since be fore their wedding. The wife is overtly sexual to ward me and has cheat ed on her husband with many men during the last year. Ill be changing jobs soon and think the hus band should know what his wife has been do ing. Should I send him an anonymous letter? Tell him in person? Or let him nd out for himself in the future? TROUBLED FRIEND IN DETROIT DEAR TROUBLED: Be cause the woman is overtly sexual with you, its likely the hus band already has an in kling. Whether you de cide to tell him his wife is cheating with multiple men depends on wheth er YOU would want to be told. But this I can tell you emphatically: This information should not be conveyed in an unsigned letter from a friend.
