-16A FRIDAY, JULY 12, 2013


Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bemrnanke speaks during
a news conference in Washington, Wednesday, June 19.
The Federal Reserve said Wednesday that it will maintain the
pace of its bond-buying program to keep long-term interest
rates at record lows.


Stocks surge


after Bernanke


allays taper fear


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Call it the
Bemrnanke Boost.
The stock market, which
has been marching higher
for a week, got extra fuel
Thursday after Federal
Reserve Chairman Ben
Bemrnanke said the central
bank will keep supporting
the economy.
The Dow Jones indus-
trial average and'Standard
& Poor's 500 surged to all-
time highs. And the yield
on the 10-year ITreasury
note continued to de-
cline as investors bought
bonds. Stocks that benefit
most from a continuation
of low interest rates, such
as homebuilders, notched
some of the biggest gains.
The chairman made the
cbinments in a speech late
Wednesday after U.S. mar-
kets had closed, saying the
economy needs the Fed's
easy-money policy "for the
foreseeable future."
The U.S. economy needs
help because unemploy-
menrit is high, Bemrnanke
said. His remarks seemed
to ease investors' fears
that the central bank will
pull back on its economic
stimulus too: quickly. The
Fed is currently buying $85
billion a month in bonds
to keep interest rates low
and to encourage spend-
ing and hiring.
Stock index futures rose
overnight. Stocks surged
when the market opened
Thursday and stayed high
for the rest of the day,
"The Fed has made it un-
equivocally clear that they
are not in any hurry to do
anything," saidAlecYoung,
Global Equity Strategist at
S&P Capital IQ. "It's very
bullish for stocks."
The S&P 500 index
, jumped 22.40 points, or 1.4
percent, to. 1,675.02, sur-
passing its previous record
close of 1,669 from May 21.
The index rose for a sixth
straight day, its longest
streak in four months.
The Dow rose 169.26
points, or 1.1 percent, to
15,460.92, above its own
all-time closing high of
15,409 set May 28.,
The Nasdaq composite
rose 57.55 points, or 1.4
percent, to 3,578.30, its
highest level in nearly 13
years.
In government bond
.trading, the yield on the
10-year Treasury note
fell to 2.57 percent from
2.63 percent Wednesday.
The yield was as high as


2.74 percent Friday after
the government reported
strong hiring in June. Many
traders took that report as
a signal that the Fed would
be more likely to slow its
bond purchases sooner
rather than later,
The Fed has also said it
plans to keep short-term
rates at record lows, at least
until unemployment falls
to 6.5 percent. Bemrnanke
emphasized Wednesday
that the level ofunemploy-
ment is a threshold, not a
trigger. The central bank
might decide to keep its
benchmark short-term
rate near zero even after
unemployment falls that
low.
"It's back to the old ac-
commodative Fed, so the
markets are happy again,"
said Randy Frederick,
managing director of ac-
tive trading and deriva-
tives at the Schwab Center
for Financial Research.
The market pulled back
last month after Bernanke
laid out a timetable for
the Fed to wind down its
bond-buying program.
He' said'the central bank
would likely ease back on
its monthly purchases if
the economy strengthened
sufficiently. .
On Thursday, Advanced
Micro Devices Inc. was the
biggest gainer in the S&P
500 after news that the
company will make chips
for two big gaming devices.
The stock rose 47 cents, or
11.8 percent, to $4.45.
Homebuilders, which
are sensitive to the outlook
for interest rates, were also
among top gainers.
lI.R. Horton Inc. 'rose
$1.93, or 9.2 percent, to
$22.98 and Lennar .Corp.
climbed $2.88, or 8.3 per-
cent, to $37.44..
The housing market has
benefited from low inter-
est rates because they help
make mortgages cheaper.
"The Bernanke quali-
fications have taken the
interest rate risk off thje
table and now it's re-
ally about what will earn-
ings say," said Jonathan
Lewis, chief investment
officer at Samson Capital
Advisors.
Corporations began re-
porting earnings this week
for the second quarter,
which ended 11 days ago.
S&P Capital IQ forecast
that companies in the S&P
500 will. report average
earnings growth of 3 per-
cent compared with the
second quarter last year.

Four new ways to save on beauty products


From Consumer Reports


There are many ways to
save on makeup and skin
care items, but 56 percent
of women say they don't
take advantage of coupons
and discounts codes, ac-
cording to a new national
poll' from ShopSmart, the
shopping magazine from
the publisher of Consum-
er Reports. .
"There's no reason to
overpay or to miss a po-
tential deal when buying
beauty items," said Lisa
Lee Freeman, editor-in-
chief of ShopSmart. 'Also
consider. ,store-brand
beauty products, if you
like them,, the savings can
be worthwhile in the long
run."
Four new ways to save
on beauty products
) New store brands.
Store-brand beauty prod-
ucts offer more choices
than ever. ShopSmart's
recent beauty product
price scan found store
brands can save shoppers
as much as 40 percent on


products such as facial
cleansers, scrubs, moistuir-
izers and eye serums. CVS,
Rite Aid, Target, Walgreens
andWal-Mart offer at least
.two tiers of store brands, a
basic line that competes
solely on price, and a pre-
mium line. Also consider
bargain 'beauty products
lurking in unlikely places
such as Aldi, Trader Joe's
aridWhole Foods.
)) High-end look-alikes.
These "equivalents" com-
pete with higher-end
name brands with com-
parable ingredients. They
might be more expensive
than mass brands, but in
most cases are cheaper
than premium brands.
ShopSmart found CVS
equivalents to best-sell-
ers such as Olay Rege-
nerist Micro-Sculpting
Cream and L'Oreal Deep-
Set -Wrinkle Repair Day
Lotion.
)) Celebrity lines. CVS,
Target and Wal-Mart of-
fer celebrity makeup lines
that can't be found any-
where else. Target carries
an exclusive cosmetics

A after helping so
JA many businesses
J. Over the last 20
years, I have come to
recognize one absolute
truth that must be fol-
lowed or else run the
risk of serious conse-
quences. That is that
every business owner
must understand and
maintain their financial
statements.
Recently, I received a
call from an entrepreneur
who had been reading mfy
columns for some time.
He was having prob-
lems in his business and
thought that I could men-
tor him and help get them
on the right path..
I met with him and, as


we talked through the
trouble he was having,
I quickly realized that
there was
no way I,
c6uld help
'A:. him right
now. He
was buried
JerW inanac-'
Oster- .counting
nightmare,
-youn .to put it
mildly.
SNot only did he have
some serious reporting
deficits with the various
government agencies he
dealt with, his account-
ing data was not even
close to accurate. The way
he determined whether
he was making money
was simply to look at
his checkbook without
any knowledge of what
bills were coming due
or which ones had gone
unpaid. As a result, he
had no real idea if he.was
making profits or taking
losses.


His accountant was
terrible, and he admitted
to me that he had no idea
what his financial state-
ments meant,
Before I could step in,
he would need someone
to address his account-
ing challenges, so I asked
Ken Saxon, a local CPA,
to work with him. Ken is.
my accountant, so I could
personally vouch for
the quality of service he
provides. I know he really
cares about his clients
and I could trusthim to
become actively engaged
with this client too.
Running a small busi- .
ness requires you to
understand and ensure
the accuracy qfyour ...
financial statements. By
being unable to do so, this
entrepreneur had gotten
himself into some major
issues on so many fronts.
He understands now how
important this is, but he
really should have known
this when he first started
*"- .


his business.
Now, I am not suggest-
ing'that all business
owners must do their
own bookkeeping. An
accountant or book- ..
keeper can prepare the
financial statements, but
it is critical that the busi-
ness owner understands
what the financial state-
ments are saying and can
ensure they are accurate.
Taking a course-in Quick-
Books is a wonderful
way to start this process.
Now go out and
make sure that you spend
some time and energy
understanding your fi-
nancials and ensuring
their accuracy. In many
ways this is like .earring
a foreign language, b,
it is a language you must
learn!
You can do this!

Renting a home gives more flexibility than buying [ii
givs M. g wP U


Dear Bruce: My husband
and I want to purchase a
home. My husband is a
graduate student working
full time.
. That said, we have, a
choice of either renting
or purchasing, and we are
leaning toward the pur-
chase option because it
will take several years to
finish his degree. I would
like to purchase a home so
we, can do alterations for
our children, and we may
not be able to do that in a
rented home.
Also, we must decide
whether to take a fixed-
rate mortgage or, as a
mortgage broker keeps
Pushing, an' adjustable-
rate mortgage. She seems
to think that we would be
far better' off with an ad-
justable rate because we
are buying for the short
term. The mortgage will
adjust at two-, three-,
four- or five-year, levels


BruceWilliMs
Smart Money
- the shorter the adjust-
merit period, the lower the
initial interest. What do
you think?
READER, VIA EMAIL

Dear Reader You are in a
difficult period in life and
complicating it by buying
a new home at this point,
in my opinion, is a mis-,
take. At least when you
are renting, you can fore-
cast to some degree when
you are going to leave,
and you have no'other re-
sponsibility except to look
for a place at your next
location.
As to .the fixed-rate or
adjustable-rate mortgage,


there is no-way I would
ever recommend an ad-
justable-rate mortgage. All
that does is delay paying
off the house. In the days
when the value of a house
"always" went up, maybe
an adjustable mortgage
would have had some
merit, but .those days are
behind us, at least for the
time being. '
I think you would be
better off to rent. Hope-.
fully, you can find a home
you can adjust to your
needs. After graduation is
the time for buying.

into custody.
Back at the church, an-
other officer spoke briefly
with the victim, turned her
over to the care of an EMS
team that had been sum-
moned, and then proceed-
ed on to the traffic stop.
That officer reported that
White was in custody by
the time he arrived, but did
not immediately sit down
in the patrol car when di-
rected several times to do
so. The third officer then
began to place White into
the back seat, at which
;,point White started kicking
him in his rightleg, accord-
ing to the.complaint. The
third officer unholstered
his stun gun, "removed the
cartridge and delivered a
drive stun to White's side
for approximately three
seconds," according to the
complaint.
White stopped kicking at
the officer at that point, the
complaint states, and he
was taken to the Jackson
County Jail without further
incident. The third officer
went. to lacksorb Hospi-
tal, where the victim had
been taken for treatment.
He interviewed her there.
The victim said that a male
friend and her two children
had just entered her home
when White approached
the area in his vehicle. She
said she rushed into the
, house herself and locked
the door.
At that point, White
stopped his car in front
of the house, got out and,
walked to the front door.
The alleged victim said
he started beating on the
door and demanding to be
let in. When she opened
the doot, she told police,
White shoved itopen fur-
ther and came inside even
as she was telling him not
to come in.
She said she tried to es-
cape by running out the
front door but that White
wouldn't let her leave. In-
stead, police reported,
White allegedly "initiated a
relentless physical attack"
on her. According to the
complaint, White repeat-
edly struck her in the head,
face, neck, shoulders and
chest with his closed fist
She was able to momen-
tartly free herself and reach
the porch of her home, but
White allegedly grabbed
her by her hair "and slung
her face-first into the porch
floor, causing momentary
paralysis, allowing an un-
protected attack on (the
victim) by White." The
woman's screams at this
point alerted the woman at
the church.,
An officer also inter-
viewed the victim's sister,
who reported that the vic-
tim's cellphone and $200
from her wallet was miss-


ing from the home after
the incident. One of the
victim's children told an of-
ficer thatWhite had shoved
her 'to the ground during
the incident, according to
the complaint.
According to jail records,
White's bond was set at
$102,500. He remained in
the facility as of Thursday
morning.

Fla. Supreme Court won't stop legal challenge


The Associated Press

TALLAHASSSEE The
Florida Supreme Court, in
a sharp rebuke to the Re-
publican-controlled Leg-
islature, refused Thursday
to throw out a lawsuit
that contends legislators
ignored new standards
while drawing up legisla-
tive districts.
The Legislature wanted
the state's ,high court to
block a challenge to last
year's new map for state
Senate districts.
But the court by a 5-2
vote ruled that block-
ing the lawsuit would go
against the will of voters
.who adopted two consti-
tutional amendments that
imposed new rules for
redistricting.,

Learning to read took
some commitment on
her mother's part. Worlds
grew up in a tiuae when
schooling was something
of an on-again, off-again
opportunity. She was one
of.11 children. Because
tending to a rural farm
took many hands, the
children had to take turns
going to school. And it was
a long walk away, a jour-
ney of miles on foot. But.
Worlds, between tend-
ing to her younger, broth-
ers and sisters and doing
chores around the home,
finished the sixth grade
and passed on her love
of education to the next
generation. She's outlived
all her siblings and two of
her children; a daughter
died as a young mother
of three, and she just lost
a son, Arthur, whom she
called "Sonny." Sonny
died "a grown old man,"
she said. She treasures

she always keeps close at

Despite this most re-

previous accidents there
have been crews that don't

be able to get passengers

Board Chairman Deborah
Hersman.
And in this atcideni, it
appears bone of the two
Chinese- teens who died

SHersman said Thursday
the fuel tanks did not rup-
ture in the crash, and that


the fire was caused by oil
on hot engines.
The NTSB is now wrap-
ping up their investiga-
tion, heading back tq
Washington D.C. in com-
ing days with "a mountain
of information" to analyze
and review, from pieces of
the airliner to interview
transcripts.
Many passengers
jumped out the back of the
plane or slid down inflated
slides through emergency
exits. Then, say some, an
unnerving wait began.
"We walked and, this
lady starts to appear, really
stumbling and waving her
hand and yelling. It took
a couple seconds to reg-
ister," said Elliott Stone,
who was returning from
a martial arts competition
in South Korea. "Then as
I saw the condition she
was in, I was like, oh my
goodness."
The woman collapsed,
he said, and he and his
family realized there
mIight be more victims
nearby, "so we started run-
ning, searching for more. I
believe we ended up find-
ing four people that were
in the back in the rubble,
all very bad condition.


We stayed with them,
comforted them, yell-
ing for ambulances, fire
trucks, anyone to come
help."
911 tapes recorded fran-
tic callers, pleading for
help.
"We've been on the
ground, I don't know, 20
minutes, a half hour,"
said one woman. "There
are ,people laying on the
tarmac with critical inju-
ries, head injuries. We're
almost losing a woman
here. We're trying to keep
her alive."
San Francisco Fire De-
partment spokeswoman
Mindy Talmadge said
Thursday that some pas-
sengers who called 911
may not have immediate-
ly seen ambulances at the
scene because, they were
dispatched to a nearby
staging area as first re-
sponders assessed who
needed to be taken to the
hospital.
"There is a procedure for .
doing it," Talmadge said,-
"You don't cause more
chaos in an already cha-
otic situation. You don't do
that with 50 ambulances
running around all over
the place."

The NMarianna AAA .,l Stars will open play,
in the Dixie bouth AALA State Tournameht -
in Lakeland on Saturday with a matchup
against the Baker All Stars.
Marianna comes into the tournament
as a district champion after knocking off
Holmes County 10-2 in the title game last
month, and coach Lee Temples said that he
has every reason to believe his team is ready :
to make another big run at state.
"We're feeling confident. We hate a lot of
pitching and I think you need that to make
it tar in the tournament," he said. "WVe're
fortunate to have quite a few pitchers on
the staff, so we're feeling real good about
that. Ifwe can hit the ball good like we have'
been, then I think we can compete with
anybody."

P-triots' Dennard



accused ofD UI


The Associated Press
FOXBOROUGH, Mass, Patriots
cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was ar-
rested and accused of drunk driving
Thursday in Nebraska while on pro-
bation for assaulting a police officer,
the second New England player to get
in serious legal trouble this summer.
Dennard's early-morning arrest in
Lincoln, Neb., where he was a col-
lege star for the Cornhuskers, came
15 days after Aaron Hemrnandez was
charged with murder and three days
after Patriots owner Robert Kraft said
the club will "be looking at our proce-
dures and auditing howwe do things"
with regard to character reviews.
"The New England Patriots are ex-
tremely disappointed to learn of Al-
fonzo Dennard's arrest. We take this
matter very seriously and are working


to get more information on the inci-
dent," the team said in a statement.
Dennard's arrest is his second in 15
months. He hasn't served a 30-day jail
Sentence for the assault
outside a'Lincoln bar
on Apr. 21, 2012. That
is scheduled to begin

-was sentenced to two
years of probation.
Hernandez, a star
Dennard tight end, was arrested
on June 26 and charged
with murder in the killing of Boston
semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty.
The Patriots cut Hemrnandez after he
was arrested and before the charges
were announced.

Tour de France



Froome retains lead after 12th stage


The Associated Press,

TOURS, France Ger-
many's Marcel Kittel
overtook Mark-Cavendish
at the line Thursday to
win the 12th stage of the
Tour de France, and Chris
Froome avoided a late
crash in the main pack to
preserve his big lead.
Cavendish moved in
front but Kittel gained
ground and just beat him
to the line to earn his sec-
ond stage win in three days
and third of this race.
"As we say in Germa-
ny, good things come in
three,".Kittel said. "It was
close. I don't know what
to say. It was a real sprint
today, that's why I'm so
happy."
German riders h`ve won
five stages so far, with Tony
Martin capturingWednes-
day's time trial and Andre
Greipel also winning a
sprint stage.
"It's a big achievement
for me, my team, and. for
German sprinters as well,"
Kittel said. :
Froome leads Alejandro
Valverde by 3 minutes,
25 seconds and is 3:54
ahead of two-time former
champion Alberto'Conta-
dor. Froome is on track to,
become the second Brit-
ish rider to win the race
- Bradley Wiggins won
it last year, with Froome
runner-up.

Froomie said. "It's scary for
everyone.",
Cavendish, the Tour's
best sprinter nvo years
ago,: has had a frustrating
race. The British sprinter
looked set to clinch his
25th career stage win of
the Tour after' his Omega
Pharma QuickStep team-
mate Gert Steegmans got
him in-a great position to
atack. But Caavendish did
not have the legs to hold
on and Kittel beat him by


half a wheel length.
"I can go. back and look
over it but he was just
faster," Cavendish said,
"(My. teammates) deliv-
ered me at the right time.
I was just beaten by a bet-
ter guy."
Peter Sagan finished
third and still has a com-
fortable lead as he bids
to win the contest for the
sprinters' green jersey.
Sagan has 307 points and
leads Cavendish by 96
points. Greipel is .in third
place and Kittel is fourth,
but both are more than
100 points from Sagan.
Looking to keep their
riders near the front of the
main pack and limit the
risk of them being caught
in crashes, Froome's Sky
and Contador's Saxo-Tin-
koff squads took turns
pushing from the front. :
"That is the best posi-
tion to be in because there
are crashes, everywhere,"
Froome said: "I did hear
the crash behind me."
Saxo-Tinkoff tried. to
pull away with about 3
miles left, but Ian Stan-
nard helped Froome
catch them. Moments lat-
er, Norway's Edvald Boas-'

Dermnnard and Hernan-
dez both were highly-
touted college prospects
whose draft stock dropped
because of character
concerns.
Seven days after being
charged with assault,'Den-
nard was drafted in the
seventh round last year out
of Nebraska by the Patri-
ots. They drafted Heman-
dez in the fourth round in
2010 after he violated the
substance abuse policy at
Florida.
"If this stuff is true, then
I've been duped and our
whole organization has
been duped," Kraft said
Monday of the case involv-
ing Hemrnandez.
The team did not re-.:
spond to a request Thurs-
day for Kraft's reaction to
Dennard's arrest.
The legal issues are
bound to hover over the
opening of training camp
on July 25. Coach Bill
Belichick rarely comments
on such matters and in-
structs his players to do
the same.
Belichick has. sometimes
signed players who had
Troubles elsewhere if he felt


they could help the team
win, hopinghis disciplined
approach and leaders such
as Tom Brady and Vince
Wilfork and now-retired
Patriots including Tedy
Bruschi and Mike Vrabel
could keep them in line.
Results have been mixed.
Runnirig back Corey Dil-
lon and wide receiver
Randy Moss, disgruntled
on their previous teams,
avoided off-field problems
with the Patriots and were
productive for several sea;
sons. Chad Johnson, then
known as Chad Ochocin-
co, caught just 15 passes
in his only seasonwith the
Patriots in 2011 but caused,
no off-field distractions.
Dennard became a start-
er at cornerback in the
seventh game of his rookie
season. The other starter,
Aqib Talib, was obtained
'from the Tampa Bay Buc-
caneers last Nov. 1 then
signed a one-year contract
on March 16. He missed his
first game with the Patriots
while completing a four-
game suspension imposed
by the NFL for violating its
policy on performance-
enhancing substances.
Talib had been suspend-
ed without pay for the
2010 opener and fined one
additional game check for
violating the NFL's person-


al-conduct policy. That fol-
lowed an altercation with a
St. Petersburg cab driver
during training camp in
2009. He also had charges
of aggravated assault with
a deadly weapon in Texas
dropped a week before he
was due to be tried for al-
legedly firing a gun.at his
sister'sboyfriend.
" On Thursday, Dennard
was pulled over while driv-
ing just before, 2 a.m. and
failed a field sobriety test,
police said. A phone list-
ing for Dennard .couldn't
be found.
Police spokeswoman Ka-
tie Flood said he was taken
to a detoxification cen-
ter but not jailed. He also
was accused of refusing a
chemical test arid a driving
-infraction.
She said a final deci-
sion on the charges likely
will be made by the Lin-
coln City Attorney's Office
before the Aug. 12 court
date, assigned to Dennard.
Assistant city prosecutor
John McQuinn said his of-
fice had not yet received
the citation against Den-
nard from police.
The Patriots' first pre-
season game is scheduled
for Aug. 9 at the Philadel-
phia Eagles.
Terry Dougherty, Den-
nard's attorney in the as-


sault case, said in April
that he would ask Lancast-
er County District Judge
Stephanie Stacy to sus-
pend the 30-day sentence
if Denmard complied with
the terms of his probation
over the subsequent 11
months. Stacy said then
that she would consider
such a motion.
It's unclear whether
prosecutors will. move to
have Dernnard's prbba-
tion revoked. Lancaster
County Attorney Joe Kelly
didn't immediately return
a message.
Dennard's arrest is the
latest off-field incident in-
volving a Patriots player
while he was with them or
before they obtained him.
Among the others:'
i- Brandon Meriweather,
a safety drafted in the first
round in 2007 from Miami,
fired a gun at an assailant
who had shot Dolphins
backup safety Willie Coo-
per outside the house the
two players shared with
another teammate, police
said. Meriweather wasn't
charged and police said he
used the gun legally.
)) Willie Andrews, a de-
fensive back drafted in
the seventh round in 2006
from Baylor, was cut by the
Patriots after being arrest-
ed twice following the 2007


season: The first arrest was
for possession of marijua-
na with intent to distribute
two, days after the Patriots
lost the Super Bowl.
)) Nick Kaczur, an offen-
sive tackle drafted in the
third round in 2005 from
Toledo, pleaded guilty in
July 2008 to speeding in a
deal with prosecutors and
was ordered to pay $355
in fines and fees. He origi-
nally was' charged with'
seventh-degree criminal


possession of a controlled
substance, a misdemeanor
punishable by up to one
year in jail, after being
pulled over by state troop-
ers near Utica, N.Y.
)) Albert Haynesworth, a
defensive tackle obtained
in a trade on July 29, 2011,
pleaded no contest the fol-
lowing month to a charge
of simple assault in a case
in which he was accused of
touching a waitress'.breast
at a hotel.

forward with Pelicans


The Associated Press

METAIHIE, La. Tyreke
Evans is hardly bothered
by the on-court -uncer-
tainty accompanying his
arrival in New Orleans.
At this point, no one can
really say how much for
the former NBA rookie of
the year will play at either
small forward, shooting
guard or point guard for
the Pelicans only that
he'll probably take turns
playing all three.
For his part, the 6-foot-6
Evans, who visited Pelicans
headquarters .. Thursday,
said he has "no problem at
all" playing extended min-
utes on the wing instead
of his usual guard spot, if
that's what coach Monty
Williams needs. Evans said
he was ready for a fresh
-start after spending his
first four NBA seasons on
losing teams in Sacramen-
to, and said he was eager
to join New Orleans' core
.of young, up-and-com-
ing players, including his.
old friend from AAU bas-
ketball, point-guard Jrue
Holiday.
"I 'made a new start in
my life in New Orleans, so
I'm happy to be here and
excited to get started with
the new players, a good
group of guys, all young
guys," Evanims said. "I'm
looking forward to playing
with those guys."
Williams, meanwhile,
found it refreshing to re-
ceive a talented young
player who made it clear
he wanted to be in New
Orleans the opposite
Sof the coach's experience
with Chris Paul, whose de-
sire to be traded two years
ago started a rebuilding
project in the Big Easy that
is now picking up steam.
"It's always important
that we not only bring in
talent like Tyreke, but we
also have somebody that
wants to be here," Williams
said. "That's something
that's paramount for me as

a coach."
Evans joined New. Or-
leans as part of a three-
team trade also involving
Portland. The deal was ef-
fectively consummated on
July 4 but riot made offi-
cial under NBA'-rules until
Wednesday.
Evans was going to be a
restricted free agent with
the Kings,: who dealt him
in what was technically
a sign-and-trade. A 'per-
-son familiar with the deal
has told The Associated
Press that Evans' contract
pays $44 million over four
years. The person spoke
on condition of anonymity
because the Pelicans have
not released Evans' con-
tract terms,
While Evanris seems most
suited to playing shooting-
guard, he does have expe-
rience both at point guard
and small forward. He av-
eraged 20.1 points in his
rookie season, but his scor-
ing average has dropped
slightly each year since,
down to 15.2 last season.
In New Orleans, Evans
joins a club that already
has a starting back court of


Holiday and Eric jG6rdon.
Holiday was ah'in Eastern
Conference' All-Star with
Philadelphia 'last season,
and acquired during this
year's draft in a trade that
sent sixLth overall pick Ner-
lens Noel and a protected

the 76ers. Gordon has had
trouble staying healthy -
playing in only 51*games
the past two seasons
- but has been New Or-
leans' lead.ding scorer when
available.
*When asked how he
'might fit in best with the
Pelicans, Evans conceded,
"I don't know yet. It's a new
process. We've, got a good
guard lineup, so I'mjust
looking forward to going
out there and playing." -
Williams said Evans will
be fine playing, on the
wing on offense, .but that
the team will have to work
on preventing Evans from
getting caught in too many
height mismatches on the
defensive end. Of most
concern to Williams was in
late-clock situations, when
a small forward sometimes
has to switch to guard a


power forward.,"
"I think the offensive side,
guys just figure it out," Wil-
liams said. "Defensively,
that's where I'm more'con-
cerned; where you have to
switch in situations, guard-
ing bigger guys."
Offensively, Williams ex-
pects the addition of Evans
and Holiday to allow the
Hornets to push the ball
more 'in transition, and
count on more scoring.
The Pelicans also expect
scoring from 2012 top
overall pick Anthony Da-
vis, as well as sharp-shoot-
ing 6-10 forward Ryan'
Anderson.
Pelicans general man-
ager Dell Demps said he
is pleased with the club's
core of what he called
"young veterans," play-
ers who've had significant
playing time in the NBA
but are still in their early to
.mid-20s. .
"They'\e already been
Bumped; and beaten and

In this file photo, Detroit Pistons guard Chauncey Billups (1)
shoots against the Boston Celtics during Game 3 of the East-
ern Conference basketball finals in Auburn Hills, Mich.

Pistons agree to 2-year

dealwithBillups


The Associated Press

DETROIT Chauncey
Billups wanted to stay
with the Detroit Pistons
for the rest of his career. '
Now, the team that trad-
ed. him,-away wants him
back.
Pistons president of bas-
ketball operations Joe Du-
mars confirmed Thursday
morning that Billups and
the team have agreed to
terms on a contract.
Billups is getting a two-
year deal, the first season
is guaranteed, tor $2,5
million each year.
"I never wanted to leave
here. Everyone knows
that," he said on Jan. 26,
2011, after making a flur-
ry of 3-pointers late: in a
game to help Denver win
in Detroit. "I wanted to re-.
tire here.", .,
He's back to help the Pis-,,
tons as a pass-first point
guard, who can make.
3-point shots. And, he
will be expected to men-
tor' 21-year-old Brandon
Knight and Kentavious
Caldwell-Pope, the No. 8
overall pick in the draft, in
* fhe backcourt and off the
court.
Detroit dealt to Denver
on Nov. 3, 2008, when
the'franchise decided its
championship-winning
window had closed. The
Pistons are almost 100.
games under .500 since
making the unpopular.
and unsuccessful move.
The Pistons traded Billups
in part to speed the devel-
opment of Rodney Stuck-
ey, to see if Allen Iverson
could provide a spark
while his contract expired
and to clear salary-cap
space for the future. .
"It was just a season of
inevitable change and
inevitable pain," Dumars
said after the- 2008-09
season ended by getting
swept in the first round
by the LeBron James-led
Cleveland Cavaliers. "Al-
though it was a tough
year, we also knew it was a
necessary process if you're
trying to position yourself
to remain relevant."
Stuckey, who is still with
the team, never became a
dependable point guard.


The millions spent in the
summer of 2009 on free
agents Ben Gordon and
Charlie Villanueva turned
out to be wasted. The Pis-
tons traded Gordon last
summer, basically to get
his contract off the books,
to. Charlotte for a first-
'round pick. Detroit could
still deal Villanueva, who
is entering the last year
of his deal, to a team that
might want to take on his
expiring, contract later
this summer or during the
upcoming season.
The Pistons, 148-244
since trading Billups,
are in a. four-year post-
season drought that is
;their longest since miss-
ing six straight from 1978
through 1983..
Billups,. a five-time
All-Star, turns 37 in
September.
He.tore his left Achilles
tendon during the 2011-
12 season, when he was
Limited to 20 game with
the Los Angeles Clippers,
and bounced ,back last
season to play 22 games
for them. '. -. '.
Billups has averaged'
15.4 points making 42
percent of his 3-pointers
and 5.5 assists during
his career.
Boston drafted him out
of Colorado with the No. 3
pick in the 1997 draft. He
went on to be on rosters
in Toronto, with his home-
town Nuggets, Orlando,
Minnesota, Detroit, back
to Denver, New York and
the Clippers.
He bounced around
early in his career and
has lately, but has always
had fans at The Palace,
which hasn't been the
same buzz-filled build-
ing it once was since he
was sent away. When Bil-
lups played his first game
there after the trade on
March 3, 2009, his signa-
ture introduction- "Bulh!
Buh! Buh! Billups! set
off standing ovation that
lasted a couple of minutes
and led to him blowing
kisses in each direction.
Back then, Billups said
it was the most emotional
regular season game he's
experienced in his 12-year
career.

Michel de Montaigne, a 16th-century French
essayist who was well-known for combining intel-
lectual exercises with casual anecdotes, said, "in
nine lifetimes, you'll never know as much about
your cat as your cat knows about you.".
In bridge, nines (and 10s) can be valuable cards.
If your hand has several of these intermediates, as
they are known, be optimistic in the bidding. In
this deal, South is in five diamonds. What should
he do after taking the heart-queen lead with his
ace? ,
North made a game-invitational limit raise.
South's decision to plunge into five diamonds
worked well. If he had rebid a scientific three
hearts, trying to reach three no-trump, West
might have deduced that his opponents were
weak in spades and led that suit. Then five dia-
monds would have failed.
South has three potential losers: two spades
and one club. He has 10 winners: two hearts, six
diamonds and two clubs. So it seems as though
he needs the club finesse to work. However, South
can improve those odds considerably.
Declarer should draw trumps, cash his second
heart winner, and cast adrift with a spade. The
defenders take two tricks in the suit ending with
West (If East is on lead, he must either play into
dummy's club king-jack tenace or concede a
ruff-and-sluff.) WhetiWestshifts to a club, South
plays low from the dummy. Here, East has to put
up the queen, so the contract is home. But if East
can play the 10, declarer still has the finesse of
dummy's jack available. He goes down only when
East has both the 10 and queen.

Broncos president says apology is hollow


The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Den-
ver Broncos coach John Fox
gathered his players at midfield
last month just before they dis-
persed for summer vacation and
gave them his usual admonition
about staying out of trouble.
By all accounts, they have
heeded that advice not to em-
barrass themselves or the or-'
ganization. But Executive Vice
President John Elway's top two
assistants haven't.
"Just make good decisions, be
smart," Fox said that hot June 13
afternoon, amantraheard across
the league as players scattered
for some R&R following months
of offseason workouts.
One day before, the Bron-
cos brass had learned that Tom
Heckert, the former Cleveland
Browns general manager, had
been charged with drunken
driving in nearby Parker just a
month after being hired as Den-
ver's director of pro personnel.
The Broncos kept Heckert's
June 11 arrest quiet until The
Associated Press reported it
Tuesday, a day after Broncos di-
rector of player personnel Matt
Russell, Elway's right-hand man,
apologized for his arrest over the
weekend on suspicion of driving
under the influence stemming
from his crash into a police SUV.
The revelation of a second
Broncos executive' facing DUI
charges led the organization to
acknowledge a "disturbing pat-
tern of irresponsible behavior"''
that it vowed to clean up.
SNeither Heckert, 45, nor Rus-
sell, 40, are expected to be fired,
.but team President Joe Ellis
promised severe penalties sepa-
rate from any legal consequenc-
es. The team has been consulting
with the NFL about discipline,
and it's expected that both men
will also undergo treatment for
alcohol problems.
The executives' arrests come at

a time when NFL Commissioner
Roger Goodell favors stiffer
penalties for first-time drunk-
en drivers and the league has
strengthened its ties to MADD
- Mothers Against Drunk Driv-
ing which participated in the
latest NFL rookie symposium..
Restoring respectability won't
come quickly. or easily, Ellis
said.
"We're not perfect. WVe've made
our errors. We admit. You can
say we apologized for it but
.1I think an apology rings hollow
when you run into the back of
a police car or you're blowing a
blood alcohol limit that's three
times the legal limit. I don't
think fans. I don't think the pub-
lic, I. don't think anybody wants
to hear an apology," Ellis told the
AP.
"So, I think you have to ac-


knowledge your mistakes and
you have to fix them and you
have to do that the right way," El-
lis said. "There's a lot of things we
do. We offer programs, we offer a,
lot of help, there's a ton of stuff
the National Football League
makes available to all the teams
in an effort for them to avoid
this kind of thing. In this case,
we had two' guys that couldn't do
it. And that's just sad.. That's too
bad. But we're going to move on
and our hope is that you won't
see'this kind of incident from an
employee again."
After Heckert's arrest became
public, social media blew up
with negative comments ,direct-
ed at the Broncos, many of them
critical of the team's decision
to keep Heckert's arrest quiet.
Former center Tom Nalen, who
is going into the team's Ring of


Fame this fall, called them cow-'
ardly in a tweet, although he
later backtracked on his radio
show.
Like any other business, the
Broncos weren't -inclined to
publicize a DUI charge facing an
employee who wasn't a senior
executive.
"Well, we handle those things
internally," Ellis said. "When
they become external, then we
deal with them. But we're not
in the business of announcing
those kinds of things before they
need to be addressed. And we
were in consultation with the
league all along and in terms of
internal communication every-
body understood it. Everybody
that was 'involved. Everybody
that needed to know."
The Broncos haven't faced this
kind of backlash since the infa-


mous videotape scandal that led
to coach Josh McDaniels' ouster
three years ago, after which El-
way was brought on board to fix
the franchise.
SIn his quest to return the Bron-
cos to the top, Elway hired John
Fox, re-signed Champ Bailey
and lured Peyton Manning. Wes
Welker was the cornerstone of
several high-profile additions
to an already star-studded ros-
ter this offseason. Combine
that with a chip on their collec-
tive shoulders from last season's
playoff pratfall and Denver was
the trendy Super Bowl pick this
summer.
Elway -had the organization
positively aglow until this week.
Now, they're sharing head-
lines with Aaron Hernandez,
the former New England Patri-
ots player who is charged with
murder, and the mug shots of
Heckert and Russell are serving
as unfortunate faces of the fran-
chise during this down time be-
fore training camp starts in 4two
weeks.
The fallout could very well af-
fect them on the field in 2013.
With penalties expected to be
handed down soon, the Bron-
cos figure, to be without their
top two personnel men at a time
when player evaluations are
paramount.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello
said the league is' leaving com-
ment on both cases up to the
Broncos, and Ellis said he's not
allowed to comment on the pro-
cess for arriving at discipline
decisions. He did say, however,
that the Broncos are treating
each case separately and he has
no timeline.
Asked if discipline might be
staggered so that the Broncos
aren't without: both person-
nel men at the same time, Ellis
said, "I don't think that's part
of the equation. I don't worry
about that. That's the least of my
concerns."


PoronofSnead s offered at auclfion


Portion of SneAd's. trophie s offerdaauto


The Associated Press

'The Masters trophy
Sam Snead won in 1954
after the epic playoffwith
Ben Hogan. The claretjug
when Snead won his only
British Open at St. An-
drews. The gold medal for
the 1942 PGA Champion-
ship, the first of his seven.
major championships.
Those are among 14 lots
from 'the Sam Snead Col-
lection that will be the
centerpiece of Heritage
Auctions' offerings next
month in Chicago.
"We consider it the
most significant golf col-
lection that's ever been
offered" said Chris Ivy,
director of sports at Heri-
tage Auctions.
Snead, who died in
2002, was the most pro-
lific winner in PGA Tour
history with 82 victories.
Jack Snead, his son, said
the trophies and memo-
rabilia for years have
been displayed at The
Greenbrier Resort, the
restaurant chain called
Sam Snead's Taverns, the
occasional museum and
at home in Hot Springs,
ya.
This is the first time the
items have been offered
at auction.
"We've been thinking
about this, trying to de-
cide what to do because
our company has so
much stuff," Snead said
Tuesday. "We just thought
maybe it was time to
share it with golf fans
and historians. We've had
most all of dad's trophies
on display at The Green-
brier over the last 16 or
20 years. I don't know. I'm
not too keen with muse-
umns. We've had some
Sweird experiences with
museums when we've
loaned things out.
"We're going to have
tons of stuff we'll main-
tain ourselves," he said.
"The rest we'll let it go out
and see what happens."
The first offering will be
Aug. 1-2 in what Heritage
Calls "Platinum Night


Sports Auction" _at the
Muvico Theater in Rose-
mont, Ill. The online bid-
ding began Wednesday
night.
Two other auctions in-
volving the Snead Collec-
tion are planned for the
fall and next spring.
. The Masters' trophy
and silver claret jug are
each expected to bring in
$100,000 or more. Ivy es-
timated the entire collec-
tion will get several mil-
lion dollars. "A collection
of this magnitude hasn't
been offered before," he
said.
Ivy said previous golf
items through Heritage
included' the. original
Augusta 'National green
jacket of co-founder
Bobby Jones that fetched
$310,000.
Other high-end golf
items wereWalter Hagen's
gold medal from his 1922
British Open win at Royal
St. George's and Ralph
Guldahl's gold medal
from the 1939 Masters.
Each went for $65,000.
Snead said the pro-
ceeds would likely to go
charity.
"The trophies didn't
mean that much to Pop
in a way," Snead said. "In
those days, he was more
concerned with the pay
check. The thing he was
most proud of was his
record. He cared more
about than any of his


tournament wins."
Snead said there were
some items that would
never be sold at auction,
though they weren't all
related to Snead's golfing
career. He mentioned the
tractor that Snead rode
on his farm in Virginia to
relax when he was away
from golf, some of the
guns Snead had since
he was a boy growing
,up in West Virginia, and
the five-strifig'banjo he
played.
For Heritage Sports,'
there wasn't as much
work involved in authen-
ticating the items. Snead
:,did that himself..
His son said when they
used to, display the items
in Sam Snead's Taverns,
his father thought it
'would be a good idea to
write a 'note explaining
the significance of each.
"The provenance is
much better coming from
the family of an athlete,"
Ivy said. "That's some-
thing Snead did that I've
never seen done before.
He went. through and
numbered all the clubs

of each club. We've got
handwritten letters from
Sam Snead saying, 'This
is the club used in 1954
in the playoff with Ben
Hogan to win the Mas-
ters.' He's got literally
hundreds of those."

fered in the initial auc-
tion include the putter
