Man faces

charges after

alleged meeting

with 15-year-old
From staff reports
A Dothan man has been charged
with multiple offenses related to
his alleged sexual encounter with a
15-year-old girl in Jackson County.
Authorities say the girl first com-
municated with 21-
year-old Kendrick
Jamile "KJ" Bolton in
an online chat room
called "Meet Me" in
late April, and that
afterward they be-
Bolton gan conversing via
instant messaging.
The girl told authorities that she.
made Kendrick aware that she was
15 years old, and that she knew he
was 21. Early on May 6, authorities
say, she invited Bolton to her home
in Marianna so they could talk.
Officials say Bolton allegedly
traveled across state lines from his
home in Dothan, Ala., that morn-
ing and the two met at the end of
her driveway. They got into his ve-
hicle and had consensual sex in the
back seat, the girl told officers. Au-
thorities say they were called to the
scene at 4:48 a.m. that day, and saw
Bolton's 1999 Ford Explorer parked
on the side of the road near the girl's
home. Authorities gave Bolton a
pat-down, discovering "a knife that
also doubled as a set of knuckles"
in his back pocket, according to the
complaint filed against him by the
Jackson County Sheriff's Office.
Bolton has been charged with on-
line solicitation, traveling to meet a
minor, lewd and lascivious moles-
tation and a weapons offense.



The cast of "Alice in Wonderland" leads a crowd of elementary school students in a post-show cheer Wednesday.

They came by bus and
by foot, from as far
away as Dothan to as
near as Golson Elementary,
to watch the Chipola
College Theater
Department put on its
annual children's show. This
year's production, "Alice in
Wonderland," is the first
children's show in the new
Chipola Center of the
Arts and will have five
performances. Four of those
are reserved for elementary
school students. Tickets are
sold out for the one public
showing tonight at 7 p.m.
Theater director Charles
Sirmon said that 2,400 kids
from 12 schools will be
attending the four school

Having escaped Wonderland, Alice, played by Gracie Wallace, finds herself besieged in the
theater's lobby by elementary school students wanting a hug Wednesday.

Sneads Elementary Wins First Place at Academic Bowl

Do you know what is a substance is called that cannot be broken down into other substances by heat, light or electricity? Or what two-word
phrase was given to America in its early days as a description of the many immigrants who sought refuge and freedom on its shores? How about
the perimeter of a right angle whose base is 9 inches long and whose hypotenuse is 15 inches? If not, the fifth-graders at the annual Jackson
County School District Academic Bowl are smarter than you. This year's bowl was hosted by Malone School and had teams from Cottondale,
Malone, Graceville, Grand Ridge, Sneads and Riverside Elementary take part. Sneads Elementary won the bowl with Riverside taking second
and Cottondale getting third place. The Sneads team is composed of (left) Principal Carolyn Pilcher, Coach Edna Reed, Austin Dennison, Trevor
Carpenter, Maegan Lucas, Jordyn Riano and Hunter Wagner.They are seen with school board member Charlotte Gardner and Superintendent Steve
Benton. For the record, the answers are: element, melting pot and 36 inches.

The family of Robert Jordy gathered in mid April for a special family photo to include
five generations. Until recently, getting all five generations together at one time seemed
somewhat impossible. The youngest member of the family, Cadyn Baker was born in
September, 2012 with a life-threatening illness and was hospitalized at Shands Hospital in
Gainesville for several weeks. Baker is now 8 months old. In February, Robert Jordy suffered a
stroke, was hospitalized and spent a little over a month recovering in a nursing home before
being able to return home to his family. The Jordy family is very thankful they are all at home,
doing well and grateful for the opportunity to gather as a family for this special five genera-
tions photo. Pictured standing from left: Carol Burch, Amber Burch holding her son Cadyn

$25,000 for Ashley.

Cleveland man charged with rape, kidnapping

The Associated Press

suspected of keeping three
women captive inside his
decrepit house for a de-
cade was charged Wednes-
day with kidnapping and
rape, accused of holding
them under conditions so
oppressive they were al-
lowed outside for only a
few moments in disguise
and never saw a chance to
escape until this week.
Investigators said the
women apparently were
bound with ropes and
chains, and a city council-
man briefed on the case
said they were subjected
to prolonged sexual and
psychological abuse and
suffered miscarriages.
Ariel Castro, a 52-year-
old former school bus
driver, was charged with
four counts of kidnapping
- covering the captives
and the daughter born to
one of them and three
counts of rape, against all
three women.
The women, now in their
20s and 30s, vanished sep-
arately between 2002 and
2004. At the time, they were
14, 16 and 20 years old.
Prosecutors brought no

charges against Castro's
two brothers, who were ar-
rested along with him on
Monday, saying there was
no evidence they had any
part in the crime.
Casiro owns the run-
down home where the
women were rescued on
Monday after one of them,
Amanda Berry, broke
through a screen door
to freedom while he was
away. The discovery elec-
trified Cleveland, where
many people had come to
believe the missing young
women were dead.
Police Deputy Chief Ed
Tomba said it was the only
opportunity they ever had
to escape.
"Something must have
clicked, and she saw an
opportunity and she took
that opportunity," he said.
Tomba'said the women
could remember being
outside only twice during
their time in captivity.

the house and went into
the garage in disguise," he

At a news conference,
authorities would not dis-
cuss the circumstances
of the women's kidnap-
pings or give further de-
tails about their ordeals.
But City Councilman
Brian Cummins said: "We
know that the victims have
confirmed miscarriages,
but with who, how many
and what conditions we

don't know."
"It sounds pretty grue-
some," he added.
Castro was in custody
Wednesday and couldn't
be reached for comment. A
brother-in-law has said the
family was shocked after
hearing about the women
at the home.
Neighbors said that over
the years, Castro took part
in the search for one of
the women, Gina Dejesus,
helped pass out fliers, per-
formed music at a fund-

raiser for her and attended
a candlelight vigil, at which
he comforted her mother.
None of the women said
anything that indicated
Castro's brothers, Pedro

who said a naked woman
was seen crawling around

Arias convicted of first-degree

murder in killing of boyfriend

PHOENIX Jodi Arias
spent 18 days on the stand
sharing intimate, emotion-
al and oftentimes X-rated
details of her life before a
rapt television and online
audience. She had hoped
it all might convince a
jury that she killed her
one-time boyfriend in
But the eight men and
four women on the panel
didn't buy it, convicting
Arias of first-degree, mur-
der after only about 15
hours of deliberations.
Jurors will return to court
Thursday to begin the
next phase of the trial that
could set the stage for Arias
receiving a death sentence
a penalty she, herself,
said she now desires in a
stunning interview follow-
ing her conviction.
Arias talked to Fox af-
filiate KSAZ in the court-
house minutes after she
was convicted. With tears
in her eyes, she said she
was overwhelmed and sur-
prised because she didn't
believe she committed
first-degree murder.
"It was unexpected for
me, yes, because there was
no premeditation on 'my
part," she said.
Arias also told the sta-
tion she would "prefer to
die sooner than later" and
that "death is the ultimate

itself was enough to grab
headlines: Arias, a 32-year-
old high school dropout,
shot Travis Alexander in

his throat from ear to ear,
leaving the motivational
speaker and businessman
nearly decapitated.

said she killed out of jeal-

and up-close. It was, for
many, the horrible train

turn away from, even
though they know they
The Maricopa County
Sheriff's Office said Arias
contacted KSAZ on Sun-
day, telling the reporter
she would honor a previ-
ous promise to speak on
camera if the verdict was
first-degree murder.
"At the conclusion of
this interview and in light
of some of her statements
during the interview, Arias
was brought to jail and per
Maricopa County Sher-
iff Joe Arpaio, was placed
on suicide protocol," the
agency said, adding that
no more media interviews
will be granted.
Arias fought back tears as
the verdict was announced
Wednesday in the hushed,
packed courtroom, while
Alexander's family mem-
bers wept and hugged
each other. They wore blue
ribbons and wristbands
with the words "Justice
For Travis." The family
thanked prosecutor Juan
Martinez and a key witness
and said it appreciated the
outpouring of support
from the public.
Outside, a huge crowd
that had gathered on
the courthouse steps
screamed, whistled and

cheered the news in a case
that has attracted fans
from across the country
who traveled to Phoenix
to be close to the proceed-
ings. Some chanted, "USA,
Alexander's friend Chris
Hughes said he was happy
with the verdict, pointing
out a bold proclamation
that Arias made in one of
her jailhouse interviews
that she wouldn't be found.
"She said, 'No jury woul4
convict me. Mark my
words.' This jury convicted
her," Hughes said. "Luck-
ily we had 12 smart jurors..
They nailed it."
The trial now moves into
the so-called aggravation
phase' during which pros-
ecutors will argue the kill-
ing was committed in an
especially cruel, heinous
and depraved manner that
should allow jurors to con-
sider the death penalty.
Both sides may call wit-
nesses and show evidence.
If the panel finds the ag-
gravating factors exist, the
trial then moves into the
final penalty phase during
which jurors will recom-
mend either life in prison
or death.

Commander cites 'rot' in nuke force

The Associated Press

fense Secretary Chuck
Hagel demanded more in-
formation Wednesday af-
ter the Air Force removed
17 launch officers from
duty at a nuclear missile
base in North Dakota over
what a commander called
"rot" in the force. The Air
Force struggled to explain,
acknowledging concern
about an "attitude prob-
lem" but telling Congress
the weapons were secure.
Hagel reacted strongly
after The Associated Press
reported the unprec-
edented sidelining of the
officers at Minot Air Force
Base, N.D., where one of
their commanders com-
plained of "such rot" that

of safety rules including
a possible compromise
of launch codes was
The AP quoted from
an internal email writ-
ten by Lt. Col. Jay Folds,
deputy commander of the
91st Operations Group,
which is responsible for
all Minuteman 3 missile
launch crews at Minot.
He lamented the remark-
ably poor reviews they
received in a March in-
spection. Their missile
launch skills were rated
"marginal," which the Air
Force told.the AP was the
equivalent of a "D" grade.
"We are, in fact, in a
crisis right now," Folds
wrote in the email to his
In response, the Air
Force said the problem
does not suggest a lack
of proper control over
the nuclear missiles but
rather was a symptom of
turmoil in the ranks.
"The idea that we have
people not performing
to the standard we ex-
pect will never be good
and we won't tolerate
it," Gen. Mark Welsh, the
service's top general, said

when questioned about
the problem at a congres-
sional hearing on budget
Underlying the Minot
situation is a sense among
some that the Air Force's
nuclear mission is a dying
field, as the government
considers further reduc-
ing the size of the U.S.
Welsh noted that be-
cause there are a limited
number of command po-
sitions to which missile
launch officers can aspire
within the nuclear force,
those officers tend to be-
lieve they have no future.
"That's actually not the
case, but that's the view
when you're in the opera-
tional force," Welsh said.

Marathon suspect's body still not buried

The Associated Press

BOSTON Nineteen
days after Boston Mara-
thon 'bombing suspect
Tamerlan Tsarnaev died
following a gunbattle with
police, cemeteries still re-
fused to take his remains
and government officials
deflected questions about
where he could be buried.
On Wednesday, police in
Worcester, west of Boston,
pleaded for a resolution,
saying they were spending
tens of thousands of dol-
lars to protect the funeral
home where his body is
being kept amid protests.
"We are not barbarians,"
police Chief Gary Gemme
said. "We bury the dead."
Tsarnaev was fatally
wounded in Watertown,
just outside Boston, after
police confronted him in
a stolen car. He was shot
several times by police,
then was run over with the
car by his fleeing brother,
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, his
accomplice in the deadly
April 15 bombing, author-
ities have said.
The bombing, involving
pressure cookers packed
with explosives and shrap-
nel near the marathon's
finish line, killed three
.people and injured about
260 others.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev's
body was released by the
state medical examiner
May 1 and has been in
limbo since. Tsarnaev's
widow had wanted his
body turned over to his
side of the family, which
claimed it.
An expert in U.S. burial
law said the resistance to
Tsarnaev's burial is un-
precedented in a country
that has always found a
way to put to rest its no-
torious killers, from Lee
Harvey Oswald to Adam
Lanza, who gunned down
20 children and six educa-
tors at a Newtown, Conn.,
elementary school last
"It's very unusual
that people are so fix-
ated on this," said Tanya

professor. "There are a lot
of evil people buried in
marked graves in the Unit-
ed States. Traditionally, in
the United States, ... when
somebody dies, that's the
end of their punishment."
A deal had been struck
Monday to bury the re-
mains of Tsarnaev, a 26-
year-old ethnic Chechen
from southern Russia, at
a state prison site, but it
dissolved after state offi-
cials stopped cooperating
Tuesday, Gemme said.
State correction officials
didn't return a phone mes-
sage Wednesday.
Peter Stefan, whose
funeral home accepted

Tsarnaev's body last week,
said Tuesday that none
of the 120 offers of graves
from the U.S. and Canada
has worked out because
officials in those cities
and towns don't want the
In Russia, officials aren't
commenting after Tsar-
naev's mother said au-
thorities won't allow her
son's body into the coun-
try so she can bury him in
her native Dagestan.
A solution may be
found in Massachusetts
law, which requires a
community to provide a
place to bury someone
"dying within its limits."

Tsarnaev lived in Cam-
bridge, across the Charles
River from Boston, but
was pronounced dead at
a Boston hospital, mean-
ing Boston would be obli-
gated to bury him under a
straight reading of the law.
But Marsh said there's a
better legal case to bury
the body in Cambridge be-
cause, in practice, where a
person lived has been the
key factor in determining
the place of burial.
Cambridge's rules for
buying a grave at the mu-
nicipal cemetery require
that "the deceased must
be a Cambridge resi-
dent," according to online

guidelines of the Cam-
bridge Department of
Public Works.
Boston also makes resi-
dency the key require-
ment of its cemetery buri-
' al rules.
"It's been the city's con-
tention that he was not a
Boston resident and there-
fore should not be buried
in the city of Boston," said
John Guilfoil, a spokes-
man for Mayor Thomas
But Cambridge's city
manager has urged the
Tsarnaev family not to try
to bury Tamerlan Tsarnaev
in the city, citing the po-
tential massive disruption.
A city spokeswoman said
Wednesday that nothing
had changed.
As officials continued to
try to bury'Tamerlan Tsar-
naev, the father of one of
the friends charged with
helping Dzhokhar Tsar-
naev after the attack said
Tuesday that his son told

ing suspect is "not a hu-

From wire reports

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON The nation's
slowly improving jobs picture
hides problems like stagnant
wages and fewer working hours
that strike directly at President
Barack Obama's base of support
-young people, racial minorities
and the less affluent.
As the president launches a new
focus on jobs, his traditional al-
lies contend Obama has put too
much of an emphasis on a defi-
cit-cutting grand bargain with
Republicans at the expense of
creating jobs.
New college graduates face a
downbeat labor market. The un-
employment rate for workers un-
der age 25 with at least bachelor's
degree has averaged 8.2 percent,
compared to 5.4 percent in 2007.
The government's April jobs re-
port showed a decline in average
weekly hours worked, and much
of the growth was in predomi-
nantly low-wage sectors such as
food services and drinking places
and retail trade. And a new study
found that nearly 2 million pri-
vate-sector employees paid with
taxpayer dollars earn wages too
low to support a family.
"My point is that we've got to
shift the national mood toward
high wage and. investment in
America as opposed to cutting
every federal program and hav-
ing this austerity-based deficit-
reduction thrust," said Rep. Keith
Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat
and co-chairman of the House
Progressive Caucus.
On Thursday, Obama is travel-
ing to Austin, Texas, to draw at-
tention to his administration's ef-
fort to boost jobs and wages and
promote his efforts to bring jobs
back to the U.S. from overseas.
Last week he spent three days in

Mexico and Costa Rica, in part to
highlight trade relations that he
said would help increase employ-
ment back home.
The economy has created 6.8
million private-sector jobs over
the past 38 months, but nearly 12
million remain unemployed. The
unemployment rate edged down
to 7.5 percent from 7.6 percent in
March and has fallen 0.4 percent-
age point since the start of the
year, though it remains high.
For the White House, creating
jobs is as much a political as it is
an economic challenge. Republi-
cans have long resisted any fur-
ther spending that would prime
the economy, arguing instead
that Obama's regulatory regime
and his new health care law are
hindering job growth.
What's more, Obama has tried
to take a two-pronged approach.
to the economy, looking to boost
the economic recovery with up-
front spending While at the same
time proposing deficit-reduction
measures that would kick in later
as the economy strengthens.
"That's like a textbook eco-
nomic response to the current
economic situation," said Mi-
chael Greenstone, who was chief
economist at the White House's
Council of Economic Advisers
during Obama's first two years in
office. "And that's not where there
is political agreement."
Indeed, Obama's jobs propos-
als have stalled in Congress and
have been met, instead, by im-
mediate budget cuts that by most
accounts have begun to create a
drag on the economic recovery.
After winning a tax increase on
the top 1 percent of income earn-
ers, Obama has insisted against
unified Republican opposition on
more tax increases to help close
deficits. The resulting stalemate

"My point is that we've got to shift the national mood
toward high wage and investment in America as
opposed to cutting every federal program and having
this austerity-based deficit-reduction thrust."
Rep. Keith Ellison,
Minnesota Democrat

has limited Obama's response.
"With aggressive fiscal stimulus
we can bring the unemployment
rate down rapidly; Washington
has.gone entirely in the other di-
rection," said Heidi Shierholz, an
economist at the liberal Econom-
ic Policy Institute.
Job growth in this recovery has
lagged that of previous economic
upturns and has been especially
hurt by job losses in government
employment and a weak con-
struction sector.
Though unemployment has
hit across demographic groups,
the hardest hit have been young
workers, workers with low levels
of education, and racial and eth-
nic minorities the very same
Americans who made up much
of Obama's winning political
The average unemployment
rate in the first quarter of this year
was 7.7 percent. But for African-
American workers that rate was
13.6 percent. For Latinos, it was
9.5 percent.
And among those who do have
jobs, wages are not rising.
Take Natividad Lucinda
Ramirez, a 55-year-old janito-
rial worker at Washington's Union
Station. She makes $8.75 an hour
as an employee of a janitorial
firm under contract by the federal
government to maintain the his-
toric train depot. She holds down
a second job, working about 60
hours a week. She has no health

care benefits. She is married and
cares for'six nephews.
"I've never asked for anything
from the government," she said.
But she joined a number of other
workers Wednesday to call on
Obama to issue an executive or-
der mandating federal contrac-
tors to pay a higher wage.
A study by the public-interest
organization Demos, which ad-
vocates for workers, concluded
that nearly 2 million workers
who have jobs paid by taxpayers
earn less than $12 an hour, or the
equivalent of $24,000 a year for
fulltime work. Critics argue that
any, mandate to increase pay will
result in higher costs to taxpayers.
But Demos analysts argue that
higher wages help save money by
reducing employee turnover and
save taxpayers by lowering the
number of workers who obtain
food stamps and other govern-
ment benefits.
Still, among the bright spots
in the economy is the growth of
manufacturing jobs. Since Febru-
ary 2010, the manufacturing sec-
tor has added a net of about half
a million jobs, compared to a loss
of 1.7 million manufacturing jobs
during the 46-month recovery
that began in November 2001.
Alan Krueger, chairman of
Obama's Council of Economic
Advisers, credits the 2009-2010
rescue of the auto industry for
much of the turnaround in

Libya's charter can
stop contentious law
TRIPOLI, Libya- A new
law that excludes former
officials of the Moammar
Gadhafi era from public
office is dividing Libya.and
deepening the turmoil
plaguing the country since
the 2011 civil war that
ousted the erratic leader.
Passed by parliament
Sunday essentially at
gunpoint heavily armed
militias were parked out-
side government buildings
and refused to leave until
it was approved the law
bans from politics not only
those who held office but
clerics who glorified the
dictator and researchers
who worked on his notori-
ous ideological tract, the
Green Book.
The measure is one more
symbol of the divided
society that has emerged
after Gadhafi in the oil-
rich North African nation,
stalling its troubled transi-
tion to democracy.
The collapse of cen-.
tral state authority and
the already weakened
military under Gadhafi
has left successive govern-
ments without strong and
decisive law enforcement
bodies and forced them to
lean on militias, formed
initially from rebel forces
that fought Gadhafi, to fill
the security vacuum.
Legal experts as well as
supporters and opponents
of the new law note that
it can be overridden if
it's not included in a new
constitution that has yet to
be drafted. The parliament
itself is temporary, with its
main mission being the
formation of a panel to
write the charter that will
result in new elections.

people in a three-nation

many diamonds from the

Officials said that among

Court upholds
Berlusconi verdict
MILAN Former Pre-
mier Silvio Berlusconi's tax
fraud conviction and four-
year prison sentence were
upheld on the first appeal
Wednesday in a case that
could see him barred from
public office for five years.
In Italy, defendants are
legally considered inno-
cent until all appeals are
exhausted, and Berlusco-
ni's lawyers are expected
to appeal the case to the
nation's highest Court of
Cassation once the rea-
soning for the decision is
Still, the ruling, which
comes just days before
prosecutors wrap up
closing arguments in his
sensational sex-for-hire
trial, raises the question
of whether Berlusconi's
days as a political force are
The ruling also upheld
barring him from man-
aging any company for
three years. Even if the jail
sentence is confirmed, it is
unlikely Berlusconi would
serve any time for the tax
fraud case because a fur-
lough shaving three years
off the sentence would
likely be applied and one-
year sentences are not

normally served.

Attack kills 20
Nigerian officers
LAGOS, Nigeria An
ethnic militia killed at
least 20 police officers
who launched a raid to try
and arrest them in central
Nigeria, a police commis-
sioner said Wednesday.
The attack in Alakio,
a village in Nasarawa
state, saw the officers
ambushed Tuesday when
they tried to stop the gang
that was forcing locals to
take a blood oath, police
commissioner Abayomi
Akermale said. Nigeria, a
nation of more than 160
million people, has some
250 ethnicities. Such eth-
nic militias can be major

ties, exacting taxes and

Akermale said the death
toll in the attack could
be higher, as emergency
officials and police officers
only reached the area on
Wednesday. The commis-
sioner declined to offer
any other specific details

about the attack, other
than to say those respon-
sible were not Islamic
The violence, which oc-
curred in a state bordering
Nigeria's central capital
ofAbuja, comes amid
growing insecurity in the
oil-rich nation; Islamic ex-
tremists, including those
belonging to the radical
network known as Boko
Haram, have been launch-
ing increasingly bloody
guerrilla attacks through-
out the country's predomi-
nantly Muslim north.
Ethnic militias, as well
as criminal gangs known
in Nigeria as "cults," kill at
will and kidnap others for
ransom. Some gangs use
traditional beliefs to instill
loyalty from their follow-
ers, as well as strike fear
into the local population.
Such gangs also are known
for using extreme violence
and conducting rituals
involving local witchcraft.

Syria blames outage
on technical problem
BEIRUT A problem
with a fiber optics cable

was responsible for an
Internet outage that cut
off civil war-ravaged Syria
from the rest of the world
for nearly 20 hours, state
media said Wednesday.
Internet service stopped
abruptly Tuesday evening,
prompting speculation
that the regime had pulled
the plug, possibly as a
cover for military action.
However, no large-scale
military offensives were
reported Wednesday
and the opposition did
not accuse the regime of
In the past, the regime
halted Internet service
in selected areas during
government offensives to
disrupt communication
among rebel fighters. The
last nationwide outage; for
two days in November, co-
incided with a major mili-
tary operation near the
capital, Damascus, and its
international airport.
A U.S.-basedWeb watch-
er said the problem would
have to occur somewhere
'inside Syria for the entire
country to be affected,
although it was impos-
sible to tell from a distance

exactly what happened.
Jim Cowie of Renesys, a
company that monitors
online traffic, said Syria is
serviced by three under-
water cables, but a prob-
lem in one of those would
not be sufficient to cut off
Internet nationwide.
Preventing Internet ac-
cess has become a tool of
last resort for governments
trying to suppress unrest,
particularly during the
Arab Spring protests that
eventually toppled leaders
in four countries.
The Internet has also
been an important tool in
the bloody battle to topple
Assad, now in its third
year. With the Syrian gov-
ernment restricting for-
eign media access to the
country, anti-regime activ-
ists talking on Skype and
amateur videos posted
online became important
sources of information.
In rebel-controlled areas
in the north and east of
Syria, the regime cut off
internet service early in
the uprising, forcing activ-
ists to use satellite phones.

Halladay headed for surgery *

The Associated Press

Halladay, arthroscopic surgery
on his troublesome throwing
shoulder became the best-case
scenario when he had prepared
himself for the worst a career-
ending injury that would force
his retirement when he's far
from ready.
Halladay will undergo a proce-
dure in his right shoulder to re-
pair a partially torn rotator cuff
and remove a bone spur. He also
has some fraying of the labrum.
"I think we did all the right
things," Halladay said. "Now I
feel I have something to grasp
onto, something to move for-
ward with. I don't feel as lost as
before. I feel like there's some
He is relieved he won't need
reconstructive surgery at this
On the 15-day disabled list
since Monday because of in-
flammation in his throwing
shoulder, the two-time CyYoung
Award winner met with Dr. Lew-
is Yocum in Los Angeles on Tues-
day. Halladay hadn't decided on
which doctor will but said he ex-
pects to have surgery next week
to give himself the best chance
of returning this season.
"They're going to go in and
clean up the bone spur, clean up
the rotator cuff and the labrum,
try and keep that as unevasive as
possible," Halladay said in the
dugout Wednesday before the
Phillies played the San Francisco

"From what I understand, if
they go in and see during surgery
what they saw on the exams, I
have a chance to come back and
pitch this year I have a good
chance to come back and pitch
this year. Hopefully be a lot more
The 35-year-old right-hander
has experienced little pain, but
his location and velocity have
been the pitcher's biggest con-
cern. He is 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA
in seven starts this season after
missing nearly two months last
year because of a strained back
muscle. Halladay allowed nine
runs in 2 1-3 innings of a 14-2
defeat to Miami on Sunday for
his second straight loss and sec-
ond outing in a row of less than
four innings third in all this
"They said my range of motion
will be better, my location will be
better, hopefully the velocity will
be better," Halladay said. "They
said the cause is a bone spur; the
rotator cuff kept rubbing over it.
Over time, it gradually created
more and more of a tear. They
want to get that cleaned up and
get that out of there."
Even if he returns this year,
Halladay figures to miss a sub-
stantial part of the season in his
contract year. He is earning $20
million this season.
Phillies general manager Ru-
ben Amaro Jr., said he won't rule
out re-signing Halladay for 2014,
though he said it was too early
to think that far into the future.
Whether Halladay could be-
come a reliable bullpen option

has not been addressed, though
Halladay reiterated he wants to
"Who wouldn't want Roy Hal-
Jaday around?" Amaro said.
Halladay said he might have
considered retirement had doc-
tors told him he couldn't come
back at full strength and re-
gained his former top form.
"He said in certain cases it's
been three months, but we re-
ally don't have a timetable," Hal-
laday said of Yocum's prognosis.
"I think the timetable is going
to come once they go in and
confirm that, hey, what we saw
on the X-rays is exactly what we
saw when we went in there. They
were definitely optimistic that I
would be back this year."
He also underwent an exam in
which dye is injected into the in-
jured area before scans are taken
in the MRI tube.
Whenever he is able to pitch
again, Halladay still hopes he
gets a chance for a World Series
"You want to go out strong
- ideally, you want to go out
a world champion," he said.
"Some of those things aren't in
your your control. I have no re-
grets at any point over my ca-
reer. If things don't work out and
they do end on a sour note, I'm
not going to look at it that way. I
really don't think that's going to
be the case."
Amaro said the Phillies will
call up right-hander Tyler Cloyd
from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to
take Halladay's turn in the rota-
tion Friday at Arizona.

After a disappointing start to the season, the Phillies' Roy Halladay will
undergo shoulder surgery.

Teen charged with homicide

by assault in referee's death

The Associated Press

accused of punching a soccer ref-
eree who later died was charged
Wednesday with homicide by as-
sault, a count issued when an at-
tack unintentionally causes death.
Salt Lake County District Attor-
ney Sim Gill also said he will seek to
try the teen as an adult in the death
of 46-year-old Ricardo Portillo.
The charge is less serious than
manslaughter. It carries a possible
sentence of up to five years in pris-
on for adults, but penalties can be
less for juveniles.
Gill said it became clear in look-
ing at the facts that the teenager's
actions didn't amount to murder or

demonstrate the premeditation or
intent to justify those charges," Gill
told The Associated Press. "Those

The 17-year-old has been in juve-

the incident occurred at a recre-
ational-league soccer match in a
Salt Lake City suburb.
The teenager, whose name is be-

Press because he's a minor, turns 18
in October. His first court appear-
ance has not yet been scheduled.
His attorney, Monica Diaz Greene,

The teenager was playing goal-
ie when Portillo called a penalty
on him for pushing an opposing
player. The teenager began arguing
with Portillo and then struck him
in the head, authorities said.

punch, hitting Portillo in the rear
jaw area with a closed fist. Another
witness said Portillo was writing

Portillo was taken to a hospital in
fair condition. Hours later, he went
into a coma. He never regained
consciousness and died Saturday.
Police say hospital staff members
told them Portillo had hemorrhag-
ing and a traumatic brain injury.
The medical examiner's autopsy
concluded he died from injuries
related to the blow to the head. The
death was ruled a homicide.
The fact that the teenager will
soon turn 18, combined with the
seriousness of what happened, led
Gill to push to have him tried as
an adult. The chance of the teen's

rehabilitation is minimal, prosecu-
tors said in court documents. A ju-
venile court judge will ultimately
rule on that request.
Little is known about the teen-
ager. His coach, James Yapias, has
said he was playing his first game
with the team but declined to elab-
orate any further about the young
man or his family. League presi-
dent, Mario Vasquez, said he didn't
know the teenager.
Tony Yapias said Wednesday he
knows people want to know more
about the teenager, but urged them
to allow the criminal justice system
to run its course.
"We cannot bring Ricardo backno
matter what we try to do," Tony Ya-
pias said. "It's a sad day. We have to
reflect on this we all have a pas-
sion for sports. Hopefully this will
be something we all learn from."
Funeral services were being held
Wednesday in Salt Lake City for
Portillo, who leaves behind three
daughters and four grandchildren.
At a wake in a community center, a
closed wooden casket was topped
with large white flowers. Two other
flower arrangements flanked the
casket, with a large framed picture
nearby of him wearing a blue shirt,
his arms raised in victory.
The attendees wore white T-shirts
with a drawing of an orange ref-
eree jersey in the middle with the
words, "In loving memory of Ricky"
around a soccer ball.
After the funeral, Portillo's re-
mains will be returned to his
hometown of Guadalajara, Mexico.
He moved to Utah from there 17
years ago.


NASCAR panel

reduces penalties

for Gibbs' team

The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.C. -ANASCAR appeals panel sided with
Joe Gibbs Racing on Wednesday and eased some of the
penalties imposed for having an illegal part in Matt Kens-
eth's race-winning engine at Kansas last month.
NASCAR punished JGR after discovering during a post-
race inspection that one of eight connecting rods in the
engine at the April 21 race did not meet the minimum
weight requirement. The part was too light by 3 grams,
less than the weight of an envelope.
JGR did not dispute the part was illegal, but argued the
penalties were too severe because it leases its engines
from Toyota Racing Development and is not permitted to
touch anything inside of them. Toyota accepted respon-
sibility and insisted one light rod did not give Kenseth a
performance advantage.
The three-member National Stock Car Racing Appeals
Panel agreed and dramatically reduced almost every
The points deducted from Kenseth were reduced from
50 to 12, which moves him from 11th in the standings to
fourth. The panel also reinstated the three bonus points
he earned for the victory for seeding in the Chase for the
Sprint Cup championship.
The panel also reduced crew chief Jason Ratcliff's sus-
pension from six races to one race, and eliminated the
six-race suspension for owner Joe Gibbs. It let stand Rat-
cliff's $200,000 fine. The only action the panel took was
increasing Toyota's penalty from a five-point fine to seven
"Glad to have today behind us so we can get our fo-
cus back on racing. I respect NASCAR and the appeals
process, I feel like they got it right," Kenseth posted on
Gibbs said he was done with the process and would not
appeal anything further.
"Right now, we just want to get back to racing," the team
owner said.
NASCAR is not eligible to appeal anything further to
chief appellate officer 'John Middlebrook. Spokesman
Kerry Tharp said the sanctioning body was disappointed
in the decision.
"Our sport has a due process system in place that has
served this sport very well for more than 65 years, and that
due process resulted in this decision here today," Tharp
said. "While we are disappointed by today's outcome, we
stand firmly behind our inspection process. The inspec-
tion of engines, and engine parts and pieces has always
been regarded as the holy grail throughout the industry
- that along with fuel and tires. In violations such as
these, we have no other reinforcement process than to
penalize the team owner and team members. That's how
our system works."
The appeal was heard by Mark Arute, general manager
of Stafford Motor Speedway in Connecticut, Denis Mc-
Glynn, CEO of Dover International Speedway and Jack
Housby, who fielded cars in the 1970s and '80s.
Of the 151 appeals heard since NASCAR began keep-
ing records in 1999, penalties were upheld 106 times. The
panel reduced penalties 32 times, eliminated penalties 11
times and increased them twice.
A week ago, the panel unanimously upheld all penalties
levied against Penske Racing for using parts confiscated
by inspectors before the April 13 race at Texas. But the six-
race suspensions for seven key Penske employees were
reduced Tuesday to two points races and the All-Star race
by Middlebrook, which team owner Roger Penske cele-
brated as a small victory.
Gibbs seemed far more subdued by what could only be
considered a major victory.

Francisco's slam lifts Braves over Reds

The Associated Press

CINCINNATI Dan Uggla and
Juan Francisco helped Atlanta
quickly forget a terrible ending.
Uggla hit a pair of solo hom-
ers and Francisco added his first
career grand slam as the Braves
recovered from a stunning last-
swing loss by beating the Cincin-
nati Reds 7-2 Wednesday.
Atlanta took two of three in the
series, the first the Reds lost at
home this season. The Reds are
13-6 at Great American Ball Park,
the most home wins the majors.
Devin Mesoraco and Shin-Soo
ChoQ hit two-out homers in the
ninth inning for Cincinnati's 5-
4 win on Tuesday night. A day
later, one of the NL's top power
teams got the better of it. Atlanta
came into the game tied with
Colorado'for the NL lead with 44
'A good win after what hap-
pened last night," manager Fredi
Gonzalez said. "Good resilience
with this club."
Uggla had solo shots in the
fourth and sixth innings off Mike
Leake (2-2), his first multihomer
game this season. Leake pitched
into the eighth, ending a streak
of six straight subpar starts by
the Reds rotation.
"One of those less-stressful
wins, I guess you could say," Ug-
gla said.
The Braves took all the stress
out of it by sending nine batters
to the plate for five runs in the
eighth off three Reds pitchers.
Francisco hit the Braves' first
grand slam of the season off J.J.
Hoover, the player he was traded
for last year.
His fifth homer landed in the
Braves' bullpen down the right
field line.

Atlanta's Juan Francisco (left) returns to the dugout after hitting a grand slam off Reds relief pitcher J.J. Hoover in the eighth inning.

"Juan's got some juice," Gonza-
lez said. "You just get the ball up
in the air here."
Francisco said he got no extra
pleasure from hitting the grand
slam against the team that trad-
ed him away.
"It just felt good that I got first
grand slam in major leagues," he
The top of the lineup had a
big day, too. Jordan Schafer had
three hits, and Andrelton' Sim-
mons had a career-high four hits
in the top two spots.
Left-hander Mike Minor (4-2)
allowed four hits in seven in-
nings, including Zack Cozart's

homer in the third. He got Leake
to fly out with two out and two
aboard in the seventh, throwing
117 pitches overall.
Last year, Leake homered off
Minor's changeup. This time, he
got nothing but fastballs.
"Minor looks like he has more
confidence than he did last
year," Leake said.
The Reds stranded a pair of
runners in scoring position
against Minor and had another
thrown out at the plate. The left-
hander has gotten a lot better at
pitching out of trouble, one rea-
son that Gonzalez left him in to
finish the seventh.

"The main change from last
year is if things do go bad, I don't
dwell on that," Minor said. "I can
move on to the next batter."
Jay Bruce had a solo shot in the
ninth off Anthony Varvaro.
The game matched starting
pitchers taken back-to-back in
the 2009 amateur draft. Minor
was taken seventh out of Van-
derbilt, with Leake drafted next
out of Arizona State. They faced
each other in college.
There was a replay review in
the fourth, when Evan Gattis hit
a long foul down the third base
line. Gonzalez talked to the um-
pires, who reviewed the play for

3 minutes, 5 secpnds and upheld
the call. Gattis struck out on the
next pitch.
Up came Uggla, who homered
on the following pitch to tie it
at 1. Uggla is 4 for 10 career off
Leake with three homers.
Both teams wasted early bases-
loaded opportunities.
Cincinnati loaded the bases
with no outs in the second. Don-
ald Lutz flied out to left field, and
Gattis threw out Brandon Phil-
lips at the plate as he tagged on
the play. The Braves loaded the
bases with one out in the third
before Freddie Freeman ground-
ed into a double play.

I am proud to have that
trophy," Karl said.
The trophy depicts the
architect of the great Bos-
ton Celtics teams back in
the fledgling days of the
NBA, Auerbach sitting at
one end of the bench with
his trademark cigar in his
right hand, a rolled up
program in his left.
There's a life-sized stat-
ue of it in Boston and Karl
said he sat there once,
imagining this very day.
"When I was told of the
award about a week ago,
it was a very humbling,
emotional experience,
because it made me think
about my career," Karl
said. "... A lot of times I
wanted to win it and nev-
er did win it."

Riding off into the sunset

Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson celebrates after Manchester United won the English Premier League at Ewood Park,
Blackburn, England on May 14,2011. Alex Ferguson is retiring at the end of the season it was announced Wednesday, bringing a
close to a trophy-filled career of more than 26 years at Manchester United that established him as the most successful coach
in British football history.

Alex Ferguson blows final whistle on Manchester United career

The Associated Press

MANCHESTER, England Dur-
ing more than a quarter of a century
in charge of Manchester United,
Alex Ferguson has always found the
way to win and win again.
Scrappy, abrasive and always up
for a fight, Ferguson turned the club
into a global power and established
himself as the most successful man-
ager in British soccer history.
And now, the 71-year-old Scots-
man is going out on a high. On his
own terms.
With his 13th Premier League title
and 38th major trophy at United
secured, Ferguson announced
Wednesday that he is retiring at the
end of the season.
"The decision to retire is one that I
have thought a great deal.about and
one that I have not taken lightly," the
Scotsman said. "It is the right time."
Since taking charge at Old Traf-
ford in 1986, Ferguson's trophy col-
lection also includes two Cham-
pions League titles, five FA Cups,
four League Cups and the 2008 FIFA
World Club Cup.
"His drive, ambition, skill, passion
and vision have not only shaped
Manchester United, but in many
ways the game of football as we now
know it," Premier League chief ex-
ecutive Richard Scudamore said.
Manchester United, owned by the
American Glazer family and listed
on the NewYork Stock Exchange, did
not immediately announce a suc-
cessor, but will need to act swiftly to
stave off any market uncertainty.
Everton manager David Moyes,
a fellow Scot from Glasgow, is the
front-runner. During 11 years at
Everton, Moyes has overseen im-
pressive results on a limited budget
and enjoyed a long-standing friend-
ship with Ferguson.
"He is a first-class manager," Fer-

guson, who is being consulted on his
successor, said of Moyes last year.
United is valued at around $3.2
billion and is one of the world's most
high-profile sports brands.
Manchester United shares
dropped more than 5 percent in ear-
ly New York trading, but the losses
were clawed back quickly. By late
morning, the shares were trading at
$18.42, down 1.3 percent.
Few managers at United or
anywhere in global soccer will
come close to matching Ferguson's
"It was important to me to leave
an organization in the strongest
possible shape and I believe I have
done so," he said. "The quality of
this league winning squad, and the
balance of ages within it, bodes well
for continued success at the highest
Ferguson reversed a previous plan
to retire at the end of the 2001-02
season, but this decision seems final,
after Manchester United extended
its record for English league cham-
pionships to 20.
United's last home game a

chance for fans to pay an emotional
farewell to Ferguson is against
Swansea on Sunday. United then
travels to West Bromwich Albion
on May 19 in the final match for the
man who has defined the club for
nearly three decades.
Ferguson will remain as a club di-
rector and ambassador.
"His contributions to Manchester
United over the last 26 years have
been extraordinary and, like all
United fans, I want him to be a part
of its future," joint chairman Avie
Glazer said.
Ferguson's style was marked by a
combustible temper. He often took
out his ire on players, rival coach-
es, referees and the media. He has
banned many reporters from the
club over the years when he disputed
their articles or line of questioning.
United's highly-paid stars have
long feared a raging Ferguson and his
"hairdryer" treatment a stream of
in-your-face invective said to make
one's hair stand on end.
David Beckham was cut above the
eye when Ferguson, furious at his
team's poor performance against
Arsenal in 2003, kicked a boot in the
changing room and it hit the mid-
fielder in the face. Fed up with Beck-
ham's celebrity lifestyle, Ferguson
sold him to Real Madrid, but there
was no lingering bitterness from the
former England captain.
"The boss wasn't just the great-
est and best manager I ever played
under he was also a father figure to
me from the moment I arrived at
the club at the age of 11 until the
day I left," Beckham, who now plays
for Paris Saint-Germain, wrote on
"Without him I would never have
achieved what I have done in my ca-
reer. He understood how important
it was to play for your country and
he knew how much it meant to me."

Dear Annie: My husband is the young-
est of seven siblings. While they are all
successful, some are more financially
comfortable than others.
Five years ago, the oldest sibling
wanted to give their mother an 80th
birthday party. She planned a huge party
for hundreds of her mother's friends
and neighbors. She rented a party place,
hired a band and catered an elaborate
buffet and open bar. She then emailed all
of the siblings and informed them that
they each owed her $1,000.
Annie, my husband didn't have that
kind of extra money. He had recently
moved, found a new job and married me,
a graduate student. He also pays child
support for a daughter and the mortgage
on another daughter's home, as well as
our rent.
He explained this to his sister and said
he could pay $150. We attended the party
and enjoyed ourselves. There was no ani-
mosity from the sister about the money
at that time. But now she has started
making rude comments to my husband
and the other siblings via Facebook and
email that she is still waiting for my

South is in three no-trump, and West leads
the spade queen. What happens if South ducks
the first trick and West continues spades at trick
two? What is West's best defense if South ducks
the first trick? What happens if South wins the
first trick?
South has seven top tricks: two spades, three
hearts and two diamonds. He must obtain two
more winners from clubs. But since he will lose
the lead twice, the defenders might establish
and run their spade suit first.
If declarer ducks trick one and West contin-
ues spades, South plays on clubs and makes his
contract. When East gets in with the club king,
he does not have another spade to lead.
If South does not win the first trick, West must
shift to a diamond to defeat the contract a
play that would be very tough to find.
If South wins the first trick, he does best to
play a heart to the queen and start clubs from
the board. To beat the contract, East must put
up his king and return his remaining spade.
When partner's suit is one lead from being es-
tablished, especially if you have only one card
left in that suit, do your utmost to win the next
defensive trick.

husband to "step up to the plate" and pay
the rest of his share.
Is it right for one member of a family
to plan an event without consulting the
others and then expect them to pony up
the money requested? This has caused
a serious rift between my husband and
some of his siblings.

Dear Wife: Obviously, your husband's
sister should have discussed the finances
with her siblings if she expected them to
split the bill. And if she is having a prob-
lem with your husband, she shouldn't be
slamming him on Facebook or in group
However, she did go through a lot
of trouble to plan the party, and for
five years, she's been out of pocket the
amount she thought your husband
would pay. He doesn't "owe" her the rest.
But in order to maintain good family
relations, your husband might speak
privately with his sister and ask whether
he could contribute whatever additional
monies he can afford on an installment

that NASCAR puts safety to
these extreme tests.

maybe we should agree with
him. Or maybe not. Who
If Talladega was the

If something looked familiar about Carl Edwards and
David Gilliland finishing second and third at a restrictor-
plate track, it's because they've done it twice since 2011.
The first time was in the '11 Daytona 500, when
Edwards finished second and Gilliland third behind surprise
winner Trevor Bayne. It happened again at Talladega
Superspeedway on Sunday when Gilliland finished second
and Edwards third as they followed underdog David Ragan
across the finish line.
Ragan should probably send half of his Talladega
winnings to Gilliland, who pushed Ragan past several elite
drivers on the last lap to help his Front Row Motorsports
teammate score his second career Sprint Cup victory.
Ragan's first was the 2011 Coke Zero 400 at Daytona, driving
for Roush Fenway Racing.
And that brings us to Gilliland, who has been knocking
around the Cup Series on a full-time basis since
the middle of the 2006 season. He was hired by
Yates Racing as a hot prospe,.1. alter winning?
a Nationwide Series race with 3a eam on a
shoestring budget.
Sunday's second-place tiriih was his tourthI
career top-five Cup effort and mn.il:hed hri
career-best finish from 20.iS I Sononia i. It was
a brilliant effort by the 37-year-old driver whO:
may be getting a bit tired ci puhinpg other,
to victory.
Gilliland said an undenunded team'ns best .
hopes are at plate tracks and road '.j:ur'e.
Gilliland's next chance .at 3 .:tcrv. That '.
would be June 23 at Sonoria FPj:.way. ritil Irhen, 'r

Top the Sprint Fan vote.
Sprint says voting is tight and added this tease in a
recent release: "... Bill Elliott, Jamie McMurray and Michael
Waltrip are notable names on the roster."
Yes, Bill Elliott. Votes can be cast using the NASCAR
Mobile '13 application or visiting NASCAR.com/
Most of the big names are already qualified by winning a
race in 2012-13 or, in the past 10 years, winning an All-Star
race'or Cup championship.

testing boundaries?
Oh yeah. A few weeks ago, fJASCAR Chairman
Brian France bragged about his orgrinal,:hri ons
willingness to let competitors speak their minds
(as long as they don't criticize the Gen 6, of
course). Will that policy hold after Newman's
calm-but-strong words about ra.:t-e fhicials after
Talladega's final wreck? Newman suggested
NASCAR's Boys in the Booth had their heads
stuck in the darkest place this side of Johnny
Cash's closet.

Was Newman right?
When it comes to plate racin' and rain delays
and onrushing darkness, no one has the right
answer. The only answer that satisfies the-vast
majority is the one we got Sunday finish the
race come hell (the Big One) or high water (the
Doppler). But that tends to be the a3nwer that
