No bucks, no boom for the Fourth

BY JENNIFER C. KERR The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Expect fewer booms this July Fourth because of finan- cial busts in some cities and towns. As many folks pack up picnics and head to see the fireworks this holiday week- end, the skies over a couple- dozen cash-strapped com- munities will be missing the spectacular crackle of color that Americans associate with the nation’s birthday. Blame the economy. Cities and towns including Antioch, Calif.; Louisville, Colo.; Akron, Ohio; Stamford, Conn.; and Jersey City, N.J., were forced to pull the plug on their local fireworks shows because of tight budgets. In Antioch, Mayor James Davis said it was a tough call to cancel the city’s nearly $80,000 fireworks show and festivities. It’s a celebration he and his wife brought back to the area 15 years ago. But even more difficult, he says, is laying off 18 people this year.

“You get to know a lot of these employees on a one-to- one basis,” said Davis. “How can we spend money on the fireworks when we’re mak- ing these cutbacks?” It is the same story in Clayton, N.C., where Mayor Jody McLeod says he can’t remember a year the town of 16,000 didn’t have fireworks — until this year. Clayton is facing layoffs and spending $30,000 for fireworks just didn’t seem right. “It’s devastating,” said the mayor. “But because of the economy, this is just what the town has to do.” McLeod has received a few letters and e-mails ask- ing how he could cancel the fireworks — “a piece of Americana,” said one; “insane,” cried another. But most residents “understand that you can only spend what you have, just like a family,” said McLeod. Dallas almost lost its fireworks when organizers couldn’t find enough cor- porate sponsors. After they canceled, a last-minute dona- tion from a scrap metal recy- cling company, Gold Metal

Recyclers, saved the show, although it’ll be held on July

5. Gold Metal and Dr Pepper are contributing $80,000 for the fireworks show and a per- formance by the Dallas Wind Symphony. Donations from a father- son team saved fireworks from fizzling in Cedar Grove, N.J., where Mayor Robert O’Toole and his son, State Sen. Kevin O’Toole, are splitting the $7,000 cost. “People always seem to step up in times of need,” said Township Manager Thomas Tucci. In Boston, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company ran an online contest com- plete with a history quiz and then awarded $10,000 grants to 10 cities, including Cincinnati and Montclair, N.J., to help them continue their July Fourth celebra- tions. While some communities struggled to find donors or had to cancel altogether, the fireworks industry itself is well, booming. “The fireworks industry tends to be recession resis-

tant,” said Julie Heckman, executive director of the American Pyrotechnics Association. “I think that’s because these community celebrations are so impor- tant.” Industry sales last year were just under a billion dol- lars, at $945 million — with steady annual increases over the last decade. About two-thirds of the revenue last year was for consumer fireworks, said Heckman. Consumer fire- works are sold most com- monly at neighborhood stands versus the display fireworks that are used at large com- munity events by licensed professionals. The Consumer Product Safety Commission urges people this holiday weekend to play it safe with sparklers, firecrackers and aerial fire- works. The agency knows of two deaths and nearly 9,000 emer- gency room visits for injuries from fireworks related inci- dents last year. Most injuries were to people younger than 20 and in many cases resulted in the loss of a limb.

Volunteers ready but left out of oil spill cleanup

By TOM BREEN The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — Many fishing boats signed up to skim oil sit idle in marinas. Some captains and deckhands say they have been just wait- ing around for instructions while drawing checks from BP of more than $1,000 a day per vessel. Thousands of offers to clean beaches and wetlands have gone unan- swered. BP and the Obama admin- istration faced mounting com- plaints Thursday that they are ignoring foreign offers of badly needed equipment and making poor use of the fishing boats and volunteers available to help clean up what may now be the big- gest spill ever in the Gulf of Mexico. Based on some govern- ment estimates, more than 140 million gallons of crude have now spewed from the bottom of the sea since the April 20 explosion that killed 11 workers on the Deepwater Horizon oil platform, eclips- ing the 1979-80 disaster off

Mexico that had long stood as the worst in the Gulf. In recent days and weeks, for reasons BP has never explained, many fishing boats hired for the cleanup have done a lot of waiting around. At the same time, there is mounting frustration over the time it has taken the govern- ment to approve offers of help from foreign countries and international organizations.

The Coast Guard said there

have been 107 offers of help from 44 nations, ranging from technical advice to skimmer boats and booms. But many of those offers are weeks old, and only a small number have been accepted, with the vast

majority still under review, according to a list kept by the State Department.

A report prepared by

investigators with the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform for Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., detailed one case in which the Dutch government offered April 30

to provide four oil skimmers that collectively could pro-

Toyota says 270,000 vehicles have faulty engines

By KEN THOMAS The Associated Press

WASHINGTON—Toyota Motor Corp. said Thursday about 270,000 cars sold world-

wide, including luxury Lexus sedans, have potentially faulty engines, in the latest quality issue to confront the Japanese automaker after a string of massive recalls. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the U.S. government’s auto safety agency, said Toyota had not formally notified it about

a recall. Japan’s top-selling

daily Yomiuri said the com- pany will inform the Japanese

transport ministry of a recall

on Monday but the paper cited

no sources. Toyota spokesman Hideaki Homma in Japan said the com- pany was evaluating measures to deal with the problem of defective engines that can stall

while the vehicle is moving. He would not confirm a recall was being considered. The world’s largest auto- maker has scrambled to repair its reputation following the recall of 8.5 million vehicles around the globe because of problems with sticking accel- erator pedals and gas pedals that can get trapped in floor

mats. Toyota was slapped with a record $16.4 million fine in the United States for acting too slowly to recall vehicles with defects. Toyota dealers have repaired millions of vehicles, but the automaker still faces more than 200 lawsuits tied to accidents, the lower resale value of Toyota vehicles and the drop in the company’s stock. U.S. regulators are working with scientists from NASA to investigate what caused some of the vehicles to suddenly

accelerate. That review is expected to be completed by late August. NHTSA officials are also reviewing whether Toyota waited nearly a year in 2005 to recall trucks and SUVs in the U.S. with defec- tive steering rods, a case that could lead to additional fines. Lexus general manager Mark Templin said during manufacturing there were some contaminated materi- als used for valve springs in the engine, which could cause abnormal noises or rough idling. In extreme cases, Templin said the engine could stall and drivers would likely hear noises or idling before the vehicle stalled. Templin said the engines

were included in previous model years of the IS350, GS350, GS460, GS450h, LS460, LS600h, LS600hL and Toyota Crown, which is primarily sold in Japan. He said the company was still evaluating which model years were affected by the engine problems and the company would make an announcement to customers when a fix is determined. About 90,000 vehicles with the engine problems were sold in Japan and the remaining 180,000 vehicles were sold overseas, mostly in the U.S., company officials said. Asked whether the cars were safe, Templin said, “I’m driving one and I feel totally comfortable in it.” Toyota said it has received around 200 complaints in Japan over faulty engines. Some drivers told Toyota that the engines made a strange noise. Homma said there have been no reports of accidents linked to the faulty engines. Toyota spokesman Ed Lewis said the company had not formally notified the U.S. highway safety agency about the issue. He could not con- firm any plans for a recall in the United States.

Prosecutors: NY suspect spilled Russia spy details

By TOM HAYS and LARRY NEIMEISTER The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Within hours of his capture, U.S. pros- ecutors say, Russian spy sus- pect Juan Lazaro admitted his name was an alias. So who is he? Lazaro wasn’t saying — not “even for his son,” court papers say. Lazaro’s admission — and defiance — was revealed Thursdaybyfederalprosecutors arguing against bail for him, his wife and another couple with children. The U.S. government claims those defendants and seven others were part of a spy ring on assignment to infiltrate America’s cities and suburbs for the Russian intelligence service. Their cover was so deep, “there is no inkling at all that theirchildrenwhotheylivewith have any idea their parents are Russian agents,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Farbiarz told U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald L. Ellis. Farbiarz warned that a pow- erful and sophisticated network of U.S.-based Russian agents was eager to help defendants in the spy ring flee the country if they were released on bail. “There are a lot of Russian government officials in the United States who are active-

ly assisting this conspiracy,” he said. The judge ruled that two defendants, Cynthia and Richard Murphy, should remain in custody because there was no other way to guar- antee they would not flee since it’s unclear who they really are. But he set bail of $250,000 for Lazaro’s wife, prominent Spanish-language journalist Vicky Pelaez, a U.S. citizen born in Peru, saying she did not appear to be trained as a spy. The judge required electronic monitoring and home deten- tion and said she would not be freed before Tuesday, giving prosecutors time to appeal. The judge ruled after Farbiarz said the evidence against the defendants contin- ued to mount and the case was solid. The decision to set bail for one defendant came as police on the island nation of Cyprus searched airports, ports and yacht marinas to find a man who had been going by the name Christopher Metsos, who disappeared after a judge there freed him on $32,500 bail. Metsos failed to show up Wednesday for a required meeting with police. He was charged by U.S. authorities with supplying funds to the other members of the spy ring. A spokesman for the U.S.

Embassy in Cyprus flatly denied local media reports today that Metsos was in U.S. custody at the embassy compound. U.S. Embassy spokes- man James Ellickson-Brown said U.S. authorities have no knowledge of Metsos’ where-

abouts and the search effort for Metsos is entirely in the hands

of Cypriot authorities. In New York, prosecu-

tors cited new evidence such

as $80,000 in new $100 bills

found in the safe-deposit box of the Murphys, who had been liv- ing in a Montclair, N.J., home paid for with money from the Russian intelligence service. Other evidence included the discovery of multiple cellular

phones and currencies in a safe- deposit box and other “tools of the trade when they’re in this business,” Farbiarz said. He said the spy ring consist- ed of people who for decades had worked to Americanize themselves while engaging in secret global travel with false passports, secret code words, fake names, invisible ink, encrypted radio transmissions and techniques so sophisticat-

ed that prosecutors chose not to

describe them in court papers. The prosecutors’ claims were countered by lawyers for several defendants who said their clients were harmless and should be released on bail.

AZ cops expect scrutiny of immigration enforcement

By JONATHAN J. COOPER The Associated Press

PHOENIX — Police enforcing Arizona’s toughest- in-the-nation immigration law are allowed to consider if a person speaks poor English, looks nervous or is traveling in an overcrowded vehicle. They can even take into account whether someone is wearing several layers of cloth- ing in a hot climate, or hanging out in an area where illegal immigrants are known to look for work. But top police officials issued a stern warning to offi- cers Thursday, telling them in a training video not to consider race or ethnicity and emphasiz- ing that “the entire country is watching.” The officials cautioned that opponents of the law may secretly videotape police mak- ing traffic stops in an effort to prove that they are racially profiling Hispanics. “Without a doubt, we’re

going to be accused of racial profiling no matter what we do on this,” Tucson Police Chief Roberto Villasenor tells officers on the video, which was posted online. The record- ing demonstrates how officers should determine when they can ask someone for proof they are in the country legally. Arizona’s law, sparked by anger over a surging popu- lation of illegal immigrants in the border state, generally requires officers enforcing another law — like speeding or jaywalking — to question a person’s immigration status if there’s a reasonable suspicion that the person is in the country illegally. Under the law, officers are also allowed to consider if a person does not have identifi- cation or tried to run away. But the stakes for making a mis- take are high: Officers can be fired if they start asking ques- tions because of a person’s race, then lie about it later, the video warns. “It is also clear that the actions of Arizona officers will never come under this level of scrutiny again,” said Lyle Mann, executive director of the state agency that trains police. “Each and every one of you will now carry the reputa- tion for the entire Arizona law enforcement community with you every day.” The law applies only to a traffic stop, a person who is detained or an arrest — not when a person flags down an officer. Police are not required to ask crime victims or wit- nesses about their immigration status, and anyone who shows a valid Arizona driver’s license is presumed to be in the coun- try legally. The law restricts the use of race, color or national origin as

the basis for triggering immi- gration questions. But civil rights groups and some police officials argue that officers will still assume that illegal immi- grants look Hispanic. Arizona’s 460,000 ille- gal immigrants are almost all Hispanic. Yet Arizona also has nearly 2 million Hispanics who are U.S. citizens or legal resi- dents, about 30 percent of the state’s population. In the training video, an expert advises officers to ask themselves whether they would reach the same conclu- sion about a Hispanic person’s immigration status if the sub- ject were white or black. “If any officer goes into a situation with a previous mind- set that one race or one ethnic- ity is not equal to another’s, then they have no business being a law enforcement officer in this state,” Arizona Police Association President Brian Livingston said in the video. To determine whether the person is legally in the United States, officers dealing with a suspected illegal immigrant are told to call the Border Patrol,

a police officer certified to

enforce immigration laws or a federal immigration hotline. They are supposed to ask federal immigration authori-

ties to come pick up illegal immigrants. If the feds refuse, officers can arrest immigrants

or take them to a federal deten-

tion center. The instructional video and supporting paperwork will be sent to all 170 Arizona police agencies. Police departments will decide the best way to teach their forces. There is no require- ment that all 15,000 Arizona police officers complete the training before the law takes effect July 29.

Ohio appeals court upholds inmate riot conviction

COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio appeals court has reject- ed a new trial for an inmate convicted in the deaths of two prisoners in a 1993 prison riot. The 10th District Court of Appeals in Columbus this week turned down the request by Timothy Grinnel, sentenced to two life terms following the Lucasville riot. The 49-year-old Grinnel was accused of opening pris-

on doors at the request of

a riot leader, allowing other

inmates to kill prisoners they considered snitches.

A judge had rejected

Grinnel’s 2008 claim that new evidence proved other inmates opened the doors, saying Grinnel waited too long to make the claim. The appeals court agreed, saying Grinnel knew about the alleged new evidence since 2003. The 11-day riot ended in the deaths of nine inmates and a prison guard.

Ohio slashes HIV drug program


The state is no longer helping more than 300 Ohioans with

HIV pay for their drugs, and there’s a new waiting list for the assistance. An official with the HIV drug program says cuts made Thursday were nec- essary because of an Ohio Department of Health pro- jection of a $16.4 million deficit.

A tighter limit has been

placed on income eligibil- ity for the program, and the

wait list means no one who is HIV-positive can start receiving assistance unless someone else stops getting the money. Officials say the program has been under pressure from the economy. More people with the virus that causes AIDS have been needing help because of insurance or job losses. The Ohio AIDS Coalition

hopes the federal govern- ment will step in with fund- ing.

cess more than 6 million gal- lons of oily water a day. It took seven weeks for the U.S. to approve the offer. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs on Thursday scorned the idea that “some- how it took the command 70 days to accept international help.” “That is a myth,” he declared, “that has been debunked literally hundreds of times.” He said 24 foreign vessels were operating in the Gulf before this week. He did not specifically address the Dutch vessels. More than 2,000 boats have signed up for oil-spill duty under BP’s Vessel of Opportunity program. The

company pays boat captains

and their crews a flat fee based on the size of the vessel, rang-

ing from $1,200 to $3,000 a day, plus a $200 fee for each crew member who works an eight-hour day. Rocky Ditcharo, a shrimp dock owner in Buras, La., said many fishermen hired by BP have told him that they often park their boats on the shore while they wait for word on where to go. “They just wait because there’s no direction,” Ditcharo said. He said he believes BP has hired many boat captains “to show numbers.” “But they’re really not doing anything,” he added. He also said he suspects the company is hiring out-of- work fishermen to placate them with paychecks. Chris Mehlig, a fisherman from Louisiana’s St. Bernard Parish, said he is getting eight days of work a month, laying down containment boom, run- ning supplies to other boats or simply being on call dockside in case he is needed. “I wish I had more days than that, but that’s the way things are,” he said.

Plan your picnic with food safety in mind

From the Allen County Health Department

LIMA – The Fourth of July is nearly upon us, and many Americans will celebrate our Nation’s birthday by grilling or attending cookouts. Safe food handling is the key to making your cookout safe and healthy for everyone. If food is not handled correctly, food-borne illness can be an unwelcome sou- venir. These three tips can help you handle food correctly:

•Keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold Meat and poultry products may contain bacteria that cause food-borne illness. They must be cooked to destroy these bacteria and then kept at temperatures that are either too hot or too cold for these bacteria to grow. • Keep everything clean Bacteria present on raw meat and poultry products can be easily spread to other foods by juices dripping from packages, hands, or utensils. Wash your hands before and after handling food. Soap and water are essential

Ruling: Cleveland teachers needn’t reapply

CLEVELAND (AP) — An arbitrator’s ruling means more than 600 Cleveland public school teachers won’t have to reapply for their jobs. Thursday’s decision is final. School district CEO Eugene Sanders says in a statement that officials are disappointed with the ruling but remain committed to transforming the school system. The district wanted to remove teachers at 14 elemen- tary schools and eight high schools and force them to reapply for their positions. The schools had been identified as weak, primarily because of low test schools, and Sanders wanted more leeway to shake up staffing. Union leaders filed a law- suit, arguing that the district needed to follow procedures spelled out in the teachers’ contract.


Ohioan accused in wife’s drowning seeks acquittal

LEBANON (AP) — Lawyers for an Ohio man

facing a possible third trial

in the 2008 bathtub drown-

ing of his wife say she had

a previously undisclosed

heart condition and are ask-

ing a judge for an acquittal. Lawyers for Ryan Widmer say in a Thursday filing in Warren County Common Pleas court that Sarah Widmer had indicated

on a dental record that she

had been diagnosed with a heart murmur as a child. The defense has pre-

viously argued that the 24-year-old Sarah Widmer may have had a seizure or

sudden heart problem that led to her drowning at the

couple’s home near Mason northeast of Cincinnati. A 2009 guilty verdict against the 29-year-old Ryan Widmer was over- turned when a judge deter- mined there had been juror misconduct. Widmer’s sec- ond trial ended last month in a mistrial when jurors could not reach a unani- mous verdict.

Report: Ohio fails to stop youth prison gangs


COLUMBUS — Efforts to stop gang violence in Ohio’s youth prisons are ineffective and three facili- ties remain unacceptably dangerous places for young people, according to a new report. While the Department of Youth Services has tried to fix the problem, the agency is also guilty of “a widespread and somewhat misguided belief that gang violence may no longer be a significant problem,” the report released late Wednesday said. “The time has come for a different approach to gang violence reduction,” said Fred Cohen, a juvenile jus- tice expert appointed by a federal judge to oversee a five-year plan to improve conditions at the youth pris- ons. The report also says the rate at which guards injure youths during discipline is declining but is still too high, and it appears prison staff don’t have the skills to properly conduct hearings about such discipline. The agency says it is making progress but knows more can be done.

“I acknowledge that we have a way to go and com- mit to seeing every initiative of the reform through to completion,” DYS director Christine Money said in a statement to The Associated Press. Ohio agreed to make widespread changes fol- lowing a 2004 lawsuit that uncovered evidence of a culture of violence permeat- ing its seven juvenile cor- rectional facilities, including excessive use of force by guards. U.S. District Judge Algenon Marbley approved the lawsuit’s settlement on May 21, 2008, and set a five-year deadline to fix the problem. Since then, the number of young people in DYS facilities has continued to drop, thanks in part to a decrease in youth crime and an increasing use of coun- ty-run facilities that keep juvenile offenders close to home. The state now has five juvenile detention centers. The report said the Ohio River Valley center in south- ern Ohio and the Circleville center have dangerous gang problems. The Indian River center in Massillon in north- east Ohio has gang prob- lems but to a lesser degree, the report said.

The agency started a pro- gram last September that tries to reduce gang vio- lence by teaching youth how to deal with drinking and drug problems, stay out of trouble and control their tempers. Among other issues cited in the report, an annual review of Ohio’s progress

in meeting goals of the five- year plan:

— Students housed in

separate units after being expelled from the agen- cy’s school system are not receiving adequate psychi- atric care and their families aren’t regularly invited to help with their treatment. — The quality of men-

tal health treatment plans is inadequate when it comes to identifying problems, mea- suring goals and reporting on progress.

— A violence-reduction

program produced marginal decreases in violence while increasing the number of young people in segregation. The agency has since modi- fied the program to reduce the hours in isolation. The report praised the agency for increasing the amount of training staff are receiving. And Cohen said DYS has made “authentic progress” in changing the nature of the agency.

Most workers who won jackpot won’t quit

BY JOHN SEEWER The Associated Press

CURTICE — A year ago, William Shanteau and his 13 co-workers at a Detroit auto plant were worried their jobs could be gone at any moment. Now they’re all million- aires after winning a share of last week’s $96.9 million Powerball drawing. Most of the group from the paint shop at a Chrysler plant that makes Jeep Grand Cherokees still plan to keep working, Shanteau said Thursday after working a 12-hour shift. “It’s like family,” he said, adding that at least two of the jackpot winners plan to retire, and he wouldn’t mind leaving early down the road. The last few years have been full of uncertainty. Chrysler filed for bank- ruptcy protection in April 2009 and struggled through a painful restructuring, clos- ing several plants and losing thousands of workers to buy- outs and early retirements. The company earlier had been in danger of being sold off in pieces if the U.S. gov- ernment had not stepped in

with billions in aid. “We didn’t know if we were going to come in and the gates were going to be closed,” Shanteau said. For now, it seems most jobs at the assembly plant are secure — not that it matters much for the lucky 14 — after Chrysler announced in May it would add about 1,100 jobs to build the new Grand Cherokee. Shanteau, 46, showed up two hours late for a news con- ference in his Ohio hometown Thursday because he had to work overtime. He drove up in a new red Corvette and received an oversized check. He said the group has been pooling its money for lottery tickets for almost two years and he joined it about six months ago. Shanteau bought the lucky ticket, one of two winners. It was only the second time he had purchased the tickets for the group. The other winner was sold in Montana and will be shared by two health care co-workers. The autoworkers claimed their prize Monday and chose to take a lump-sum cash pay- ment, worth about $25.1 mil- lion. After taxes, each auto-

worker gets $1.2 million. Shanteau, who’s a regu- lar lottery player, won a $100,000 jackpot about six years ago. The others, who all live Michigan, have stayed out of the spotlight. Both Ohio and Michigan are among the highest in unemployment and have been hurt more than any others by the slumping auto indus- try with tens of thousands of jobs last as plants and sup- pliers have cut production or closed. Shanteau said he was laid off for about a year in the early 1990s and has been making cars for 27 years. He now wants to buy his wife a Jeep and pay for new American flags for his home- town, which is just outside Toledo. “That’s it,” he said, look- ing over at his new Corvette. “I’ve got my dream.”

Closing in on genes that help us live to 100

WASHINGTON (AP) — The oldest among us seem to have chosen their parents well. Researchers closing in on the impact of family versus lifestyle find most people who live to 100 or older share some helpful genes. But don’t give up on diet and exercise just yet. In an early step to under- standing the pathways that lead to surviving into old age, researchers report in Thursday’s online edition of the journal Science that a study of centenarians found most had a number of genetic variations in common. That doesn’t mean there’s

a quick test to determine who

will live long and who won’t — a healthy lifestyle and other factors are also significant, noted the team led by Paola Sebastiani and Thomas T. Perls of Boston University. Nevertheless, Perls said the research might point the way to determining who will be vulnerable to specific diseases sooner, and there may be a possibility, down the road, to help guide therapy for them. The team looked at the genomes of 1,055 Caucasians born between 1890 and 1910 and compared them with 1,267 people born later. By studying genetic mark- ers the researchers were able to predict with 77 percent accuracy which gene groups came from people over 100. “Seventy-seven percent is very high accuracy for a genet- ic model,” said Sebastiani. “But 23 percent error rate also shows there is a lot that remains to be discovered.” The centenarians could be fitted into 19 groups with dif- ferent genetic signatures, they found. Some genes correlate longer survival, others delayed the onset of various age-relat- ed diseases such as dementia. “The signatures show dif- ferent paths of longevity,” Sebastiani said. In general, the centenarians remained in good health longer than average, not developing diseases associated with old age until in their 90s, accord- ing to the study. Researchers were surprised, Sebastiani said, that they found little difference between the centenarians and the control group in genetic variations that predispose people to cer- tain illnesses. “We found that what pre- disposes to a long life is not lack of disease associated vari- ants, but the presence of pro- tective variants,” she said at a briefing. In addition, 40 percent of “super-centenarians” aged 110 and over had three specific genetic variants in common. Perls cautioned that this is

a very complex genetic puz-

zle and “we’re quite a ways away, still, in understanding what pathways are governed by these genes.” “I look at the complexity of this puzzle and feel very strongly that this will not lead

to treatments that will get peo- ple to be centenarians,” he said. But it may help in developing

a strategy and screenings that

will help find what treatments will be needed down the road. While this study, begun in 1995, focused on Caucasians, the researchers said they plan to extend it to other groups, includ- ing studying Japan, which has large numbers of elderly. “Inheritability of longev- ity has been looked at, so genes do play a role,” said Dr. Kenneth S. Kendler of the Department of Human and Molecular Genetics at Virginia Commonwealth University.

That would be the sixth- straight month of gains and an improvement from a weak showing of 41,000 in May. But the unemployment rate is forecast to tick up to

9.8 percent from 9.7 percent.

The report will be released

ing for unemployment ben- efits for the first time. The

four-week average for jobless claims now stands at its high-

just after Congress adjourned

for the holiday weekend with-

out extending jobless ben- efits. On top of that, the housing market appears to be slump- ing again, and the Dow Jones industrials closed down for the sixth trading day in a row. Add in slower growth

in China and the European debt crisis, and economists are scaling back their fore- casts for the U.S. “When you add it all up, it doesn’t imply a double- dip, but it does suggest that growth will be slower than

we’d like to see,” said Scott

Brown, chief economist at Raymond James. A double-dip recession happens when an economy

shrinks, then begins to expand again before going back into

reverse. Senate Republicans, expressing concerns about the ballooning federal deficit, this week blocked a bill that would have kept unemploy- ment checks going to people who have been laid off for long stretches. More than 1.3 million peo- ple have been left without federal jobless benefits after

Congress adjourned without an extension. That number could grow to 3.3 million by the end of the month if lawmakers can’t resolve the

impasse when they return. Among those waiting for

a resolution is Nan Esparza, 59, a single mother of three in Smithfield, N.C., who lost her job as a legal secretary early last year. Her unem- ployment benefits expired last month. She plans to live off savings. “After that, I’m in a world of trouble,” she said.

War funding splits House, Senate Dems

By ANDREW TAYLOR The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A House measure blending money for President Barack Obama’s Afghanistan troop surge with last-ditch moves by Democrats to salvage their faltering jobs agenda faces an uphill climb in the Senate. After long delays, House Democrats muscled the approximately $80 billion measure to passage Thursday night as their final act before leaving for a weeklong Fourth of July break. But the Senate passed a significantly slimmer measure in May and it’ll take additional weeks to reconcile the differences between the rival chambers of Congress. It’s just the latest discon- nect between the battling House and Senate, which also have been unable to approve an extension of unemployment benefits and other economic stimulus steps. Repeated Senate fili- busters are chiefly to blame, but Democratic leaders in the House and Senate also have disagreed on strategy and tac- tics, and long-simmering ten- sions have reached the boil- ing point. House leaders went ahead with Thursday’s measure despite ample evidence that

they have limited leverage in forcing the Senate to accept the more than $20 billion in domestic spending add-ons, such as $10 billion in grants to school districts to avoid teacher layoffs, $5 billion for Pell Grants to low-income college students and $700 million to improve security along the U.S.-Mexico bor- der. The White House weighed in with a veto threat over $800 million in cuts to edu- cation programs that would be used to help pay for the additional domestic spending under a “pay-as-you-go” cul- ture that the administration itself advocates. The measure is anchored by a nearly $60 billion Senate-passed measure that blends $30 billion for the influx of 30,000 troops into Afghanistan with money for disaster aid accounts, foreign

aid and disability benefits for Vietnam veterans exposed to Agent Orange. The House measure will receive a cold shoulder from Senate Republicans, who would have the votes to fili- buster it, according to Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi,

a senior Republican whose

support was central to Senate

passage. House Republicans sup-

portive of the Afghanistan effort voted against the mea- sure, angered that Democrats were using the must-pass legislation to try to advance unrelated spending. “The Democrat majority

is treating this troop funding bill like a cash-cow for their election-year wish-list,” said Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Calif. But top Democrats such as Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, D-Wis., and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., insisted on adding the domestic dollars, viewing the war funding bill as their last, best shot

at resuscitating their faltering

jobs agenda. The money was critical to winning support from Democrats frustrated over deepening Senate grid- lock that has killed, among other ideas, $24 billion in aid to cash-starved states to help governors avoid tens of thou- sands of layoffs. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has been agitating for the war money, requested in February, but the real dead- line for Congress isn’t until its August recess. Still, the delays in approv- ing the war funds will mean

the Pentagon will have to employ burdensome book- keeping maneuvers to main- tain the war effort.

Democrats use Kagan to sign up voters, raise funds


WASHINGTON — The Democratic Party put Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan front and cen- ter Thursday on an e-mail appeal to raise funds and sign up supporters for President Barack Obama’s agenda. “Kagan for Justice,” reads

a bumper sticker-style head-

line on a website where sup- porters are asked to sign their names and give their e-mail addresses, then taken to a site where they are asked to donate money to the Democratic National Committee. Also topping the site is a picture of a smiling Kagan, who just concluded three

days of hearings before the

Senate Judiciary Committee at which she pledged repeat- edly to cast aside any politi- cal allegiances if confirmed, and decide cases solely on the basis of the Constitution and the law. The appeal comes from Donna Brazile, one of Democrats’ top voter regis- tration officials. “The Democratic Party is pushing back to ensure that this incredible woman gets

a fair hearing, but we must

also show that public support for Kagan is overwhelming,” Brazile writes. The message came as the Judiciary panel concluded nearly a week of hearings on Kagan, who’s on track for confirmation after a smooth performance before senators.

A vote by the committee is

expected within weeks to send Kagan’s nomination to the full Senate, where Democrats

have more than enough votes

to confirm her.

Still, conservative oppo- nents are stepping up their efforts to get senators to vote “no.” The National Rifle Association said Kagan “has repeatedly demon- strated a clear hostility to the fundamental, individ- ual right to keep and bear arms guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution.” In a let- ter to senators Thursday, the group’s leaders said Kagan’s confirmation vote would be considered in NRA’s candi- date evaluations. Republicans argue that Kagan would have trouble putting aside her political leanings and ruling in an impartial way. The GOP called several military witnesses Thursday who said Kagan’s decision as

dean of Harvard Law School

to bar Pentagon recruiters from the campus career ser- vices office over the ban on openly gay soldiers made her unfit to be a justice. Retired Army Capt. Flagg Youngblood compared her treatment of recruiters to racial segregation and said

it reflected “a condescen- sion towards American rule of law.” A vote for Kagan, Youngblood said, was “a vote to harm the interests of

our military.” Kagan defended her actions during this week’s hearings, saying she had tried to comply with Harvard’s anti-discrimination policy without jeopardizing the school’s eligibility for fed- eral funds under a law that required equal access for

military recruiters. Under her arrangement, recruiters had

to work through a student-run

veterans’ organization. Democrats called Lilly Ledbetter — the central fig- ure in a 2007 Supreme Court decision saying discriminato- ry pay actions by companies had to be addressed immedi- ately, or not at all — to urge support for Kagan. Ledbetter said the court needs more lib- eral justices like Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and retiring Justice John Paul Stevens.

The Associated Press NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — Arjun Atwal learned years ago to stop comparing himself with Tiger Woods dur- ing their many practice rounds together in Florida. There was no comparison Thursday in the opening round of the AT&T National. Atwal ran off three straight birdies early in his round at Aronimink Golf Club and wound up in a 4-way tie for the lead at 4-under 66 on a gorgeous day in the Philadelphia suburbs. Woods let a decent round get away from him with an awful finish and shot 73 to finish near the bottom of the pack. Joining Atwal atop the lead- erboard were Joe Ogilvie, Nick Watson and Jason Day. Woods, the winner last year at Congressional in Bethesda, Md., had a bogey, a double bogey and a missed 5-foot

birdie putt on the last three holes.

Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic SYLVANIA — Na Yeon Choi shot a career-best 7-under 64 to take a 1-stroke lead over Canadian Alena Sharp in the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic. Choi, the South Korean player who missed her first cut in 2 1/2 years last week in the LPGA Championship, had eight birdies and a bogey at Highland Meadows and needed just 26 putts — after changing putters this week. Marisa Baena, playing even though she says she has officially retired from competitive golf, was at 66 along with Christina Kim and Switzerland’s Karine Icher. French Open VERSAILLES, France — Dutchman Robert-Jan Derksen shot an 8-under 63 at Le Golf National to take a 3-shot lead in the French Open. Defending champion Martin Kaymer of Germany, Spain’s Alejandro Canizares and France’s Jean Van de Velde opened with 66s. The event features four of the top 10 players in the world. No. 10 Rory McIlroy had a 68, No. 3 Lee Westwood and No. 7 Luke Donald shot 70s, and No. 8 Ian Poulter had a 72.

Netherlands-Brazil match

promises pure excitement

By ANDREW DAMPF The Associated Press

unbeaten streak. The Dutch feature some of Europe’s top stars in Inter Milan playmak- er Wesley Sneijder, Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben and Arsenal striker Robin van Persie. While he still hasn’t scored, Brazil playmaker Kaka is returning to form and his pinpoint passes have helped Luis Fabiano rekindle his scoring touch. Also, speedy for- ward Robinho has given the Selecao an added weapon again, notching the third goal against Chile. Even with so many crafty players on the pitch at once, Netherlands coach Bert van

Marwijk doesn’t agree with Dunga’s prediction, practical- ly pronouncing the death of “total football” — the famous Dutch “clockwork orange” attacking style of quick pass- ing and running off the ball. The Dutch game reached its apex in the 1970s when the Netherlands reached con- secutive World Cup finals — losing to Germany and Argentina in 1974 and 1978, respectively. “It was ‘total football’ and I also remember Brazil’s samba football, but sport changes and football changes also,” Van Marwijk said. “It has to do with the fact everybody is getting fitter, better organized so if you play as you did in former times I think it would

PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa — Not much hype is required when the 5-time champion faces the

country that created “total football” in the World Cup quar- terfinals.

Still, Brazil coach Dunga made

a point of empha-

sizing just how

spectacular today’s match against the Netherlands might

be. Dunga, who was captain

on the Brazil side that beat the Netherlands in 1994 and 1998, said Thursday that he would pay to watch the game

if he didn’t have a free pass

for the sideline. “Both sides play an attack-

ing game, both feature very technical players, both know how to dribble and take risks, and both want to score,” the former midfielder explained. “So you can always expect a great football game. “We all know that in the knockout stage all the games are open. You can’t play defensively because all the players on the pitch are experts.” The winner will face either Uruguay or Ghana in the semifinals. A 2-time runner-up but never World Cup cham- pion, the Netherlands enters on a team-record 23-match

cham- pion, the Netherlands enters on a team-record 23-match be very difficult to win the World

be very difficult to win the World Cup.” Dunga must make do without suspended midfielder Ramires, while injuries to Elano, Felipe Melo and Julio Baptista leave the coach with

few options in midfield. Elano is definitely out because of

a bruised bone in his right

ankle, while Felipe Melo and Julio Baptista are doubtful. Netherlands midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has returned to full training fol- lowing a left calf injury and Van Marwijk declared him fully fit. Stadium venue manager Archie Charalambous said that all 42,286 seats had been sold, the first sellout in seven matches at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Ghana bids to become first African team into semis: Rival strikers Diego Forlan and Asamoah Gyan are out to help Uruguay and Ghana end long waits at the World Cup today, although only one will succeed. Uruguay will be chasing its first semifinal appearance for 40 years while Ghana is bidding to make his- tory for Africa as the first from the continent to reach the final four. Gyan’s three goals have helped Ghana survive a tough group stage and then beat the United States in the first knockout round to reach the last eight. Meanwhile, Forlan has taken advantage of a shrewd tactical switch by wily coach Oscar Tabarez. The 1930 and 1950 World Cup winner, Uruguay has a solid defense and a 3-pronged attacking formation with Forlan playing just behind Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. Tabarez went to that system after the team labored to a 0-0 draw with France and the result was two strikes by Forlan in a 3-0 victory over host South Africa. Uruguay also

beat Mexico 1-0 thanks to a goal by Suarez, who then netted two in a 2-1 victory over South Korea. Uruguay has been forced into

a change in defense with Diego

Godin ruled out with a thigh injury. But Forlan has recovered sufficiently

from a damaged toe and will face the Ghanaians. Ghana is without suspended players Jonathan Mensah and Andre Ayew but Gyan has recov-

ered from an ankle injury he picked

up in the second-round victory over

the Americans. Maradona concerned about Messi: Argentina coach Diego Maradona has a big concern: Lionel Messi’s health. The Barcelona play- maker skipped training Thursday with what team doctor Donato Villani said were “cold-like symptoms.” The team downplayed the ailment, how- ever, saying Messi is expected to resume full training today. Bosque sticks by Torres:

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque is sticking by Fernando Torres despite

the striker’s poor World Cup form so

far as Spain plays Paraguay at Ellis

Park on Saturday. Torres has struggled to estab- lish himself in South Africa since

returning from knee surgery in April. Although Fernando Llorente played well after replacing the Liverpool striker in the 1-0 win over Portugal, Del Bosque says “our striker is Fernando (Torres).” Midfielder Javi Martinez could

be unavailable for Spain after injur-

ing his ankle in training, who will also likely be without backup center back Raul Albiol, who continues to recover from an ankle injury. Senators get behind US World

Cup bid: A group of senators is get- ting behind an effort to bring the World Cup to the U.S. in 2018 or


The senators, led by New

York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand, planned to send a letter to FIFA president Sepp Blatter this week on behalf of the U.S. bid. The Associated Press obtained a copy

of the letter. The senators say they’re hope-

ful that “Americans will be given

a chance to display their passion”

for the sport. And they argue that the U.S. has the infrastructure to handle soccer’s premier event.

Nets, Knicks woo NBA superstar LeBron James

By TOM WITHERS The Associated Press

isfy his ambition of winning a championship and becoming a billionaire. The Nets will try to sell him Brooklyn — not the bridge but their next home. The Knicks will entice him with basket-

ball’s Mecca, Madison Square Garden, and the bright- est lights. The Chicago Bulls can offer a talented roster and the chance to walk in Michael Jordan’s footsteps. The Miami Heat are count- ing on South Beach, a favorable income tax climate and the pos- sibility of teaming up with fellow free agent Dwyane Wade to lure him from Ohio’s snow. The Los Angeles Clippers can offer Hollywood and the chance to do the unthinkable:

make them a winner. And then there’s the Cavs, his team for the past seven seasons, who can only hope that his head makes his heart stay close to his Akron home. Cleveland can offer James, who was already a national figure before he graduated from St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, $30 million more than any other team, thanks to the NBA players’ collective bargaining agree- ment. Money, though, is not all the 6-8, 260-pound player wants. He’s after titles, lots of them. While he has led the Cavs through their most success- ful stretch in team history, James has come up short in his pursuit of a championship

CLEVELAND — It’s a flirtatious courtship, media

frenzy and global event rolled into a package unprecedented

in sports history.

The recruitment of LeBron James, the NBA’s 2-time reigning MVP and player for the ages, has become an international soap opera featuring private jets, closed-door meetings and rumors that seem- ingly change by the second. It’s battling the World Cup, Wimbledon and the oil spill for headlines and its con- clusion may not only alter the league’s balance or power but also mean tens of millions of dollars more in revenues for the winning city. All hail the King. Or at least make him an offer. On Thursday, James became the most celebrated free agent of our time, touch- ing off a multimillion-dollar

bidding war that began with the New Jersey Nets, led by billionaire Russian owner Mikhail Prokhorov and rap mogul Jay-Z. They were followed by the New York

Knicks making presentations to the 25-year-old superstar, who must decide if it’s time to leave home. In the next few days, at least six teams, including the senti- mental hometown favorites, the Cleveland Cavaliers, will have audiences with James and try to convince him that he should join them to sat-

and try to convince him that he should join them to sat- to solidify his legacy.

to solidify his legacy.

James’ decision, which isn’t expected to be announced for at least another week, has

many fans in this city fearing the worst. After all, this is where sports heartbreak has taken up permanent residence. Ask anyone from Cleveland

to recite the local teams’ mis-

ery since the Browns won the NFL title in 1964 and they’ll roll their eyes before rattling off nicknames given to the most gut-wrenching losses by the Indians, Browns and Cavaliers. Losing James might top

them all. Cleveland also stands

to lose tens of millions of dol-

lars from its already-ravaged economy by one estimate if

James decides to skip town. In larger markets like New York

or Chicago, he could bring in

hundreds of millions of dol- lars to businesses.

Jackson returning to coach Lakers next season: After just one relaxing week in Montana, Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson decided he can han- dle another season of the NBA grind. The 2-time defending cham- pions locked up their most important free agent of the sum- mer Thursday when Jackson announced he’ll return next sea- son, putting off retirement for at least another year to chase his 12th NBA title. Jackson said last week he was worn out and leaning toward retirement after the Lakers’ third straight long season culminating in the NBA finals. He changed his mind after a week of rest and health evaluation at his offseason home, signing up for the unprec- edented chance to win three con- secutive NBA championships for the fourth time in his career. Jackson, who will turn 65 later this year, is the winningest coach

in playoff history and the most successful coach in NBA history by almost any measure. Los Angeles has made the finals in seven of Jackson’s 10 seasons with the club and they’ll be among the early favorites to win it all again in 2011. The Lakers have surrounded Bryant with a core in its prime and signed to long-term contracts.

Bucks agree to deal with Gooden: Everyone who thought the Milwaukee Bucks would be among the most active teams on the first day of NBA free agency, please raise your hands. The Bucks made a surprising early splash Thursday, agreeing in principle to a 5-year, $32 mil- lion deal with free-agent forward Drew Gooden. Agent Stu Lash told The Associated Press that Gooden

agreed to sign with the Bucks for the mid-level exception. Gooden is represented by Lash and Dan Fegan of Lagardere-Unlimited. The eight-year pro has played for eight teams, including the Clippers and Mavericks last sea- son. He has averaged 11.9 points and 7.9 rebounds per game but hasn’t managed to stick anywhere. Gay gets a big contract:

While James listened to reasons why he should leave his team, Rudy Gay was given a huge rea- son to stay. The first big deal of the free agency period went to Gay, who agreed to a 5-year deal with the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday that will pay him more than $80 million, according to a person with knowledge of the negotia- tions. While not on the top level of players available, Gay was expected to draw interest from a number of teams. He canceled a planned visit to Minnesota when the Grizzlies stepped forward with their offer. Darko Milicic — drafted right after James with the No. 2 pick in the 2003 draft — agreed to a 4-year deal with the Timberwolves. It includes about $16 million in guaranteed money, despite what’s been a disappointing career for the center from Serbia.

S.Williams to face Zvonareva in Wimbledon final

By HOWARD FENDRICH The Associated Press

WIMBLEDON, England — After defending champi- on Serena Williams moved within a victory of her fourth Wimbledon championship and 13th Grand Slam title over- all, she was asked to assess the woman she’ll face in Saturday’s final, little-known Vera Zvonareva of Russia. “I don’t think she does any- thing terrible. I think that’s the best way to describe her game,” Williams said. “She does everything good.” That’s a fair, if not nec- essarily charitable, scouting report. Minutes later came a follow-up: Is there anything Williams herself does “ter- rible” in tennis or in life? She hemmed and hawed, then replied, “I don’t know. That’s a good question. I’m stumped.” It’s difficult to find any flaws in Williams’ play right now. The No. 1-ranked

American has won all 12 sets she’s played this fortnight, set a Wimbledon record with 80 aces in the tournament and reached a third consecutive final at the All England Club by beating Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic 7-6 (5), 6-2 Thursday. The 21st-ranked Zvonareva eliminated Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 in Thursday’s other semifinal. She is the second-lowest- ranked woman to reach a Wimbledon final, had never gotten past the fourth round here and will be playing in a title match for the first time in 30 Grand Slam tournaments. Pironkova’s match against Zvonareva began with doz- ens of empty green seats in the stands, perhaps because of the lunchtime start — or the low-wattage names on the marquee. Still, the tennis was enter- taining, with both women pounding shots. Pironkova never made it

past the second round in 18 previous Grand Slam appear- ances and she hasn’t been a finalist at any tour event. But she didn’t show nerves early on, breaking Zvonareva’s serve to lead 4-2. Throughout the first set, Pironkova successfully employed the same formula she used to upset Venus Williams and 2007 Wimbledon runner- up Marion Bartoli: mixing speeds and limiting her mis- takes. It took 59 minutes for Zvonareva to earn a break point, which she did in the second set’s sixth game by returning a 117-mph serve, then watching Pironkova put a backhand into the net. Zvonareva’s groundstroke winner made it 4-2 and she shook her fist. Zvonareva took 10 of the last 13 games. After producing eight winners in the first set, she totaled 23 the rest of the match. In all, Zvonareva won 29 of the 35 points when she

went to the net. Zvonareva’s on quite a run, including getting past for- mer No. 1s Jelena Jankovic and Kim Clijsters. Plus, she already owns one victory this week over Williams — over both, actually — by teaming with Elena Vesnina to elimi- nate the top-seeded sisters in the doubles quarterfinals. Serena had a brief early deficit against the left-handed Kvitova, a 20-year-old with braces and a go-for-broke atti- tude. Kvitova went ahead 3-2 by breaking Williams’ serve, then held to 4-2. But Williams broke back to 4-all when Kvitova missed a forehand. Then, at 6-3 in the tiebreaker, the far- more-experienced Williams held three set points — and let the first two slip away. On the third, Williams hit a service winner at 115 mph. Williams hit seven aces, reached 119 mph, and didn’t face a break point in the sec- ond set.

John Wooden, a faithful man

As the decades passed, the coach got used to hearing people call him a hero, an icon and even a saint -- even though he reminded them that only God knows the truth about any man. It was common to see the former English teacher reading the classics. But he also read his Bible daily and rarely missed church, so some friends called him “Reverend.” That was probably for the best, since he disliked his other nickname -- “the Wizard of Westwood.” John Wooden’s own list of heroes was short and symbolic. At the top was his father, Josh- ua, followed by President Abraham Lincoln. Among those who lived during his 99 years of life, he greatly admired the selfless service and deep faith of Mother Teresa. It’s hard to find heroes in a world wracked by scandals, corruption, infidelity and greed, Wooden once told me, during a 1990 tele- phone conversation just before the NCAA men’s basketball tournament ended in Denver. But these painful realities only raise the stakes for people whose callings can lead to fame. “When anyone is in a profession that is constantly putting them in the public eye, then they have to feel that they have a unique re- sponsibility,” he said. On the other side of this tricky equation, he added, some “people want


On Religion

you to be perfect. But we’re not perfect. We’re all fallible, flawed people. That’s the reality of life.” Wooden had planned to come to Denver and take part in an event he rarely missed, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes breakfast at the Final Four. However, he decided it was too soon to return to a setting he had always shared with Nellie, his wife of 53 years, who died on March 21, 1985. He was still grieving. After the coach’s death on June 4, waves of media tributes focused on his stunning fi- nal years at UCLA -- when his teams won 335 games and lost 22, while winning 10 NCAA championships in 12 years. But Wooden was also an outstanding student at Purdue Uni- versity and the first three-time consensus All- American in history. He was the first person enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame as a

player and as a coach. Many Americans also learned poignant details about the marriage of Nellie and John Wooden, including his ritual of writing a love letter to her on the 21st of every month af- ter her death, producing stacks of envelopes wrapped in ribbons on her pillow. Wooden’s favorite Scripture passage was 1 Corinthians 13, and it guided his relationships with his wife, family and players. That chapter ends with these famous words: “So now faith, hope and love abide, these three; but the great- est of these is love.” When working with secular audiences, Wooden used a nondenominational approach to life’s great lessons -- which led to his fa- mous “Pyramid of Success” image, built on common virtues such as “skill,” “enthusiasm,” “industriousness,” “patience” and “faith.” For- mer players also learned to recite his folksy sayings, such as “Be quick, but don’t hurry” and “It is what we learn after we know it all that really counts.” But Wooden shared other sayings, when the time was right, including this one: “Basketball is not the ultimate. It is of small importance in comparison to the total life we live. There is only one kind of life that truly wins, and that is the one that places faith in the hands of the

Savior. Until that is done, we are on an aimless course that runs in circles and goes nowhere.” In the 1990 interview, the coach stressed that sports are important and can be used to build character. However, sports can also “tear down character” if twisted into a win-at-all- costs brand of faith. Sports are like politics, business, the arts and organized religion, he said. All of these callings require people to make hard decisions, and people are free to make good choices and bad choices. People are also free to admire and follow bad leaders, as well as good ones. “You see, the truth is somewhere in be- tween. It’s wrong to turn people into idols. But

it’s also wrong to lose hope, to believe that we can’t find good examples to inspire us,” said

Wooden. “We need role


role models are getting harder to find, these days. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t any worth finding.”
