Rice said that he and Gossard were approached about running the tournament since it looked as if no one would be available this year. Really, we volunteered because we have thrown in this for many years, Rice added. It was always a very well-run event and drew a lot of good participants within the Delphos area, as well as many players from out of town. As for the planning and execution of the event, Rice said both men are doing everything from start to finish and want to continue to make this a successful tournament. At this time, Rice said they are just getting started and hoping that some local businesses will help out with some prizes gift cards on top of the cash payouts.

COLUMBUS Ohio utility regulators on Wednesday ordered FirstEnergy to credit $43.3 million back to customers after the company overcharged them for renewables purchases in Ohios developing alternative energy market. The unanimous action by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio for the first time puts a dollar figure on excess costs the Akron-based utility paid a subsidiary for renewable energy and then passed on to customers. The company said it disagrees with the commissions decision and plans to appeal. The ruling does not change the fact that purchasing the renewable energy credits was the only option available to us under Ohios clean energy law, FirstEnergy spokesman Doug Colafella wrote in an email. The decision suggests we should have ignored Ohio law and it penalizes us for following the law. An audit of the overcharges by Exeter Associates Inc. indicated FirstEnergy paid 15 times more than any other company in the country to subsidiary FirstEnergy Solutions to buy the credits it would use to help meet Ohios new renewable energy standard. The standard requires utilities to provide 25 percent of their energy from renewable sources by 2025. Fun and games are in store for children during the annual St. Joseph Parish Festival Portions of the audit were blocked from public view because of confidentiality claims by the company, and PUCO this weekend. (Delphos Herald file photo) Chairman Todd Snitchler said Wednesday those figures will remain secret. An analysis by the Natural Resources Defense Council had put the excess payments at between $96 million and $126 million. See FIRSTENERGY, page 10

August a good month to plant cover crops USDA says it will stop
BY JAMES M. HOORMAN Ag Educator OSU-Extension Putnam County August is a great month to plant fall cover crops, especially after wheat harvest. There are three major types of cover crops: Grasses, Brassicas and Legumes. Grasses (oats, cereal rye) have a fibrous root system and absorb soil nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) while adding soil organic matter. Brassicas (oilseed radish, rape/canola) suppress weeds and insects and reduce soil compaction and add active organic matter. Legumes (crimson clover, winter peas) are nitrogen fixers that add soil nitrogen. Oats are easy fall crop to grow and may also be a source of forage. As a cover crop, drill one bushel or 30-60 pounds about 0.5-1.5 inches deep in the soil. If you are broadcasting seed, increase the seeding rate 10 percent (works well before a rain). Good seed to soil contact increases growth. Add 40 -50# N which may be in the form of manure, fertilizer, or as a legume companion crop to increase growth by 50 percent or more. If forage is desired, drill two bu,/A and add fertilizer or manure to get 1-3 tons of forage that may be wet-baled by Thanksgiving or early December. Oats tolerates temperatures down in the 20s before it dies. If going to corn the following year, mow or cut the oats before it flowers to prevent spring N tie up due to a high carbon nitrogen ratio in the straw. In other words, keep the oats in a vegetative stage. Cereal rye loosens the soil and the fibrous roots provide P to the soybean plant. Drill cereal rye at 1.0-1.5 inches deep using 0.75-1 bushel/A. If you want forage in the spring (up to 4-5 tons), drill two bu./A and fertilize the cereal rye with manure or commercial fertilizer at 50-7#/A in the fall and spring. Cereal rye germinates at 32 degrees but for best results, try to plant before midOctober to get a fall stand to reduce soil erosion; otherwise it will germinate in the spring. Cereal rye can be harvested in the spring in the boot stage and makes excellent haylage or silage. Cereal rye has an allelopathic (negative) effect on germinating weeds. Oilseed radish or the Daikon radish is a white tuber that reduces soil compaction with roots 2-5 feet deep. Drill radish at 3-5#/A and 0.25-0.5 inches deep or broadcast seed on the soil surface. Oilseed radish perform better in mixtures and requires some nitrogen (50#/A) for good growth. Drilling or broadcasting oilseed radish at 1-2#/A with 7-8#/A crimson clover is a good mixture or 1-2# radish in alternating rows with 15-18#/A of winter peas is a good practice before corn. The radish force the legumes to produce more N but they die at 15 degrees and then the legumes will take back the N and carry it forward to the next crop. Radishes suppress weeds, promote earthworms and increase beneficial insects. Radishes tend to really stink when they decompose (40-60 degrees), so be careful where you plant them! Rapeseed or canola is another brassica that has deep fibrous root system and grows 3-5 feet tall. Rapeseed is a wild cousin of canola (oilseed) with greater winter hardiness than canola grown for seed. Drill rapeseed 0.25-0.5 inches deep at 2-5#/A. Rapeseed grows well in the fall and tolerates poor soil fertility and germinates at 41 degrees. Crimson Clover (Dixie variety) is commonly grown with the radish in a mixture. If grown by itself, drill 16 pounds per acre (7-8#/A in a two-way mixture) 0.25-0.5 inches deep. Radish and crimson clover, due to their small seed size, are often broadcast on the soil surface and a good rain will promote good seed to soil contact and germination if planted in August or early September. Cover crops need a minimum of 60-90 days of growth to survive the winter. The later they are planted in September, the poorer the growth. One day in September is like three days of growth in October and a week of growth in November (unless it is really warm and sunny). Crimson clover can supply 100125 pounds of N to the next crop. Winter peas (Austrian or Windham) can be planted at 30#/A by themselves or 15-18#/A with radish. Austrian winter peas will generally die in the fall after growing 3-5 feet and produce 100-150 # N/A. The Windham variety of winter peas are more cold-tolerant and are grown after early soybeans (harvested in September). If they survive the winter, let them grow in the spring to produce 75-100# N/A. All legumes and clover need to be properly inoculated to produce N.


cotton payments to Brazil

WASHINGTON (AP) The United States will cease paying a $147 million annual settlement to Brazil that is part of a longrunning trade dispute over cotton subsidies, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said Wednesday. The United States agreed to pay the money to Brazil in 2010, just before the South American country was set to raise tariffs on hundreds of millions of dollars in American goods, including autos, pharmaceuticals and electronics. Stopping the payments could prompt Brazil to threaten retaliation again. Vilsack said in an interview from Brazil that he doesnt have the authority to continue payments when the budget year begins Oct. 1 because Congress hasnt yet passed a farm bill or a budget. Current farm law expires Sept. 30. The World Trade Organization said in 2009 that Brazil could raise the tariffs on American goods because the United States had failed to get rid of subsidies the WTO said are illegal. A farm bill pending in Congress would attempt to bring those cotton subsidies into compliance, but it is now stalled amid disputes between the House and Senate. The Brazilian government brought the case to the WTO in 2002, alleging the United States remained the worlds secondlargest cotton producer by paying out the subsidies. The 2010 agreement was designed as temporary until Congress could resolve the issue. The only way that can be done is through the passage of a farm bill, Vilsack said. We need (Congress) to get down to brass tacks here and get this done. The Brazilian foreign and agriculture ministries declined to comment Wednesday. Vilsack said he met with Brazilian Minister of Agriculture Antonio Andrade and Eduardo dos Santos, the No. 2 diplomat at the foreign ministry. They said they would be watching the farm bill progress in the United States very closely, Vilsack said, but did not give a deadline for action to avoid retaliation. They reminded us fairly pointedly that their patience is not limitless and their options are few, Vilsack said. Vilsack has been pressuring Congress to finish the farm legislation, which would set policy for farm programs and food stamps. Both the House and Senate versions of the bill would restructure cotton payments in an effort to please the WTO, including eliminating cash payments known as direct payments and creating a new cotton program that works more like crop insurance.

Where do we go from here?

Metcalfes Musings
By JIM METCALFE Sports Editor You just knew that I was going to write something about the Alex Rodriguez scandal, didnt you, my 35 fans? Major League Baseball suspended 13 guys for their involvement with the now-closed Biogenesis laboratory, 12 of them either for 50 games almost the rest of the year. The only one who is fighting it is to borrow a word from that wordsmith, Dave Boninsegna the aforementioned A-Rod. Of course, his suspension is 211 games basically, he is gone until the 2015 season. I get that he will fight that sentence but it also seems to me from media reports by those who are more in-theknow than I can ever be that his involvement with this clinic was far more extensive and perhaps bordered on the criminal, while the others were more straightforward: they admitted it and took their medicine. Here is my thing: he wants to be a role model but he doesnt seem to be forthcoming with his side of the story to be that role model. Quite frankly, I tire of people that claim that now is not the time to come clean its always the time to come clean, especially for your fans and that they will tell all at their convenience. If you didnt do it, tell us now; putting it off makes you look guilty.

Dont hide behind newspeak or mumbo jumbo. Hey, unlike Tom Cruises character in A Few Good Men at least in the opinion of Jack Nicholson we can handle the truth! You talk about the mistakes you made but then never seem to admit those mistakes as to what they were/are. His remark of fighting for my life quite frankly makes me sick. You are nearing the end of your career and have made a ton of moolah playing a game. If this is the worst thing you have happen you have admitted to cheating before and seem to be admitting that you have continued to cheat lately you made mistakes in your rehabs from injury? then you really have nothing to complain about; you are getting your just desserts, in my book. Quite honestly, its almost guaranteed that some arbitrator when he does get around to ruling on the case, which will probably be after this season will knock that down at least half. The sad part is that the arbitrator might maybe not likely but who really knows finally get around to it next summer and fall and A-Rod will be ready to call it quits. Or if he/she realizes that A-Rod might hang them up this fall, then he/she wont need to make a ruling. A-Rod says one thing about there not being negotiations but MLB contradicts that. I find that hard to believe that he is correct when at least a few of the others did negotiate. Even the Players Association president admitted that had a certain number been given A-Rod, hed have advised him to take it. If hes not guilty, why would he do that? As always, there could be more than meets the eye or in my most humble opinion, meets the nose here because it does smell of rotten fish. You want to give the benefit of the doubt we all know of people wrongfully accused but at the same time, I know I am becoming more and more cynical of these guys these days; its getting harder and harder to believe our heroes.

A 1-week break for the Ryder Cup next year

Associated Press PITTSFORD, N.Y. For the first time in five years, PGA Tour players will face four straight weeks of golf in the FedEx Cup playoffs in 2014. The tour has been scheduling a week off between its four playoff events since 2010, mainly to keep players in the Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup from too much competition. The last two times in Ryder Cup years, the matches were held a week after the Tour Championship. The PGA of America, on behalf of Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson, asked PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem to consider giving players a week off before the matches. Our captain felt like that it was imperative that our players had a week off prior to the Ryder Cup, PGA president Ted Bishop explained Wednesday. The tour acquiesced; during the course of more conversations, the PGA of America decided to drop Glorys Last Shot as its slogan for the PGA Championship. While the PGA Championship is the final major, the rest of the calendar year featured the FedEx Cup playoffs and even the Ryder Cup itself. The PGA Tour is not releasing its full 2013-14 schedule until next month but this means there will be four straight weeks of playoff events in August and September, followed by a week off before going to Scotland for the Ryder Cup. Bishop said Finchem was provocative in stating the PGA Championship had the strongest field among major championships and could stand on its own merit without a slogan. I think that we feel that our championship does stand on its own merits and there is other golf thats played after this championship, albeit not major golf, Bishop said. And so that was just one example of some of the many things that I feel like we have been able to work together and accomplish hand-inhand with the PGA Tour. The last time the PGA Tour had four straight playoff events was in 2009, when Tiger Woods won the $10 million bonus. Bishop has been concerned about the energy level of the American team since last year at Medinah, where Europe staged a record-tying comeback. That would go against another school of thought, however, that the matches have been close ever since the FedEx Cup began because all the top players are in form. So does the tours big bonanza at the end of the year hurt or help? I dont think that its probably impacted the Ryder Cup that much one way or the other, Bishop added. I know Tom was very emphatic about this in my discussions with him that he did think that due to number of weeks in a row or six out of eight weeks that these guys play leading up to the Ryder Cup that he had some concerns that our players, particularly when we were playing a foreign Ryder Cup and you had to deal with the time change and the travel, that there was a fatigue factor. RICKIES FRESH SET OF EYES: The only swing coach for Rickie Fowler was Barry McDonnell, who taught him on the Murrieta Valley Golf Range in southern California. McDonnell died at age 75 two years ago. Fowler still doesnt have a coach, though he did seek some help. Butch Harmon told reporters he was asked to take a look at Fowlers swing during the British Open, during which Harmon recommended the club going back a little more straight so that Fowler doesnt have to drop it back into position on the downswing. Harmon did not classify it as a formal teacher-pupil relationship. Nick Watney, meanwhile, was seen twice on the practice range working with Todd Anderson, the Sea Island swing coach whose clients include Brandt Snedeker. Watney worked with Harmon for years and lately had been seeing his son, Claude Harmon III. See GOLF, page 7

Bruce powers Reds past Athletics 6-5

Associated Press CINCINNATI Corky Miller got a chance to play a major-league game in front of his sons on Wednesday and the journeyman catcher made the most of the opportunity. Miller had a pair of run-scoring doubles and a key defensive play, helping the Cincinnati Reds to a 6-5 victory over Bartolo Colon and the slumping Oakland Athletics. Jay Bruce hit a 2-run homer and a run-scoring grounder for Cincinnati, which won consecutive games for the first time since July 24 in San Francisco and July 25 in Los Angeles. Joey Votto had two hits and Zack Cozart scored twice. Miller has spent most of the season with Triple-A Louisville. He could be headed back to the minors soon with Ryan Hanigan on his way back from a wrist injury. With sons Caden, 8, and Chase, 5, in town for the Reds family game, Miller increased his total to five RBIs in 14 games this season. It was fun looking up and seeing them, Miller said. AL West-leading Oakland, which began the day with a 1-game advantage over Texas, scored as many runs as it had in its previous three games but still lost for the sixth time in seven games. Colon (14-4) was knocked out in the third inning in his shortest outing of the season. The All-Star right-hander, who was pitching on six days rest but weakened by a stomach virus, had made 15 consecutive starts of at least six innings and three or fewer earned runs. Bartolo didnt have his best stuff, manager Bob Melvin said. His velocity was down a little bit. He had a stomach virus in the bullpen. Hes had it before but worked through it.

Millers first run-scoring double gave Cincinnati a 2-1 lead in the second inning. The Reds added three more in the third, with Bruce going deep for the second straight game and Miller driving in Cozart for the second time on the day. Colon allowed five runs and seven hits in 2 2/3 innings. He was 3-0 with a 1.57 ERA in his previous five starts, including a 4-hitter in a 6-0 victory at the Los Angeles Angels on July 21. Homer Bailey (7-10) won his second straight start despite allowing nine hits and five runs in 5 1/3 innings. They put the bat on the ball pretty well, he said. You saw it last night with Mat (Latos). He didnt get a lot of strikeouts. When you put it into play, things happen. Bailey left with a runner on third but Manny Parra wriggled out of the jam. Parra, Sam LeCure and J.J.

CHICAGO The Major League Baseball Players Association formally appealed Alex Rodriguezs 211-game suspension Wednesday, sending the case to an independent arbitrator. Union spokesman Greg Bouris confirmed the appeal and said the players association had no further comment. A message was left seeking comment from Major League Baseball. Rodriguez, who was back at third base and batting third for the New York Yankees against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night, said he had no reaction to the filing of the grievance. The 3-time MVP was suspended through the 2014 season on Monday when the league penalized 13 players following an investigation into Biogenesis of America, a shuttled Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. The other 12 players accepted 50-game suspensions but Rodriguez said he planned to fight. Union head Michael Weiner said the punishment for the slugger was way out of line. Rodriguezs punishment was scheduled to begin today but he is allowed to keep playing until the grievance is heard by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. He isnt expected to rule until November or December at the earliest. Coming back from hip surgery in January, Rodriguez played his first

game of the season Monday night in the series opener at Chicago. He singled in his first at-bat and was 2-for-6 with a walk in his first two games. Rodriguez has been booed lustily since his return, except for when he was hit by a pitch in the third inning of Tuesday nights 3-2 loss.

NEW YORK Umpire Manny Gonzalez was held out of the Rockies-Mets game Wednesday night because he is experiencing dizziness and has swelling in his throat a day after being hit by a pitch. Major League Baseball security officer Ron Myers told The Associated Press Gonzalez is doing very well but still has discomfort in the throat and is lightheaded. Myers added it is standard to keep an umpire out of games until he is feeling 100 percent. Gonzalez was working the plate when a pitch from Mets starter Jenrry Mejia bounced up and lodged under his protective mask. Larry Vanover, the second-base ump, took over behind the plate and the game continued with three umpires. David Rackely filled in for Gonzalez and was the second base umpire Wednesday.

disease. Parker told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he was diagnosed with the disease in February 2012. Parkers condition was first reported by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. I went in for a physical, went through the whole physical and my hand was shaking, Parker said by telephone. The docs saw it and I said Ive been having problems with that. They said Yeah, you got Parkinsons thats how I found out. Parkinsons is a progressive disorder that gradually takes a toll on the nervous system. Notable figures with the disease include Muhammad Ali and actor Michael J. Fox. The 62-year-old Parker said his older sister is also suffering from Parkinsons. The 1978 National League MVP is able to get by without medication at this point and relies on a healthy diet and plenty of exercise, including at least an hour a day on his bicycle. He got in his usual round of golf on Wednesday, rushing a bit to beat afternoon thundershowers. Nicknamed Cobra because of his lethal bat and cannon-like arm, Parker hit 339 home runs during a 19-year career with five teams, most notably the Pittsburgh Pirates. He helped Pittsburgh win the 1979 World Series and was named MVP of the All-Star game that year after a pair of outfield assists helped the National League pull out a 7-6 victory. Parker won another title with the Oakland As in 1989, when he hit 22 homers and drove in 97 runs at age 38. He is still active in the game, occasionally working as a hitting coach. Parker said he believes the Pirates, in first-place in the NL Central, are ready to end two decades of losing. I know the fans are used to winning when I played, Parker added. They desperately need a winning season. (Twenty) years of losing baseball is unacceptable as far as I concerned. When I played, we threw everything out on the field and including the kitchen sink. Its nice to see these guys doing the same.

His injury has blown the race wide open with five races remaining to set the 12-driver field. Its not clear how many races Stewart will miss StewartHaas Racing has announced theyll know more after his second surgery on his broken right leg but they no longer consider him a factor to make the Chase. The biggest benefactor, ironically, is teammate Ryan Newman. Newman became a Chase contender two weeks ago with his win at Indianapolis Motor Speedway but at 15th in points needed a lot of help in front of him to claim the second wild card. He should gain ground once Stewart misses his first race Sunday and competition director Greg Zipadelli said the SHR focus now shifts to Newman. Well, our focus has always been getting (Stewart) and (Newman) in the Chase; they both obviously had opportunities to make the Chase, Zipadelli added. Our focus was to give them equal attention. I think obviously now that the 39 is our only chance, we will do whatever we can to help. I dont know that its any more than what we have been doing but well certainly do our best to work together as a team, and if theres anything they need, we will certainly do our best to give them what they need to have that opportunity.

Josh Donaldson and Eric Sogard had two hits and two RBIs apiece for Oakland, which finished with 11 hits. Donaldson hit a solo drive in the second for his 17th homer. Stephen Vogt singled in a run in the fourth for the As but Bruce made a perfect throw to cut down Alberto Callaspo trying to score from second on the base hit to right.

WHATS FOR DINNER: A tradition like one other took place Tuesday night when defending champion Rory McIlroy hosted a dinner for past winners of the PGA Championship. McIlroy was in charge of the menu, similar to the Champions Dinner at the Masters, the difference being he didnt have to pay for it. So what was for dinner? A goats cheese and beet root salad for a starter. Irish tenderloin as the main course. Sticky toffee pudding for dessert. It was good, McIlroy said, speaking at least for himself. Everybody definitely enjoyed the last two courses. I dont know how the appetizer went down. He also gave them each Bose speakers that were personalized. McIlroy signed a deal with Bose earlier this year. Keeping with the tradition, McIlroy asked two former caught one more inning. champions to make speeches.

Bradley, who won the PGA Championship prior to McIlroy winning last year at Kiawah Island. It was cool, McIlroy added. You have the most recent PGA champions like myself, Keegan Bradley, Martin Kaymer. And then you have someone like Doug Ford. It was his 91st birthday yesterday. NO SOUVENIRS FOR YOU: Watson tried to do some advance scouting during a visit to Gleneagles, the famed Scottish resort that will be the site of next years matches. While his hosts couldnt have been more gracious showing Watson around, the hospitality dried up pretty quickly when he asked to see the pin sheets from a previous tournament. By seeing where the putting cups were located during the Johnnie Walker Championship, played over the same Centenary Course, Watson was hoping to make an educated guess where they might be when the U.S. and European sides clash a year from September.


(Continued from page 6)

I thought it was interesting that during his first game back against the Chicago White Sox, he was booed. That might be expected any way because he is a member of the Evil Empire, even if the court of fans have ruled he is guilty. However, during the day before the game, he also had his share of fans and autographseekers, so there are still some that are rooting for him. Maybe they are less jaded than I am! It will be interesting to see what the players themselves think about this and how they will react?

More and more stories I have read indicate that players are tired of this issue and want the union to agree to even harsher testing: the longer this goes, the more even the clean players are under suspicion; and they are angry. I cant blame them, either; they want to be cleared and they cant be with this stuff continuing to happen. In the end, does anyone else see a Lance Armstrong in this? As an aside here: more and more people are turning the focus onto Bud Selig, the powers-that-be, the union and the teams themselves with this, how they knew this has been going on for decades and turned a blind eye

to it. I will wait and see how that turns out. Perhaps now might be the time for Selig to retire instead of 2015. I think MLB and the union really need to step back and assess where this game is going. Another aside: perhaps it is coincidental or not but in the face of this scandal, the Florida High School Athletic Association held a telephone conference call with sports editors and reporters to announce an aggressive step designed to target PED use by Florida high school student-athletes Tuesday. Biogenesis was based in Florida.

Study ties higher blood sugar to dementia risk More Powerball players
Associated Press Higher blood-sugar levels, even those well short of diabetes, seem to raise the risk of developing dementia, a major new study finds. Researchers say it suggests a novel way to try to prevent Alzheimers disease by keeping glucose at a healthy level. Alzheimers is by far the most common form of dementia and its long been known that diabetes makes it more likely. The new study tracked blood sugar over time in all sorts of people with and without diabetes to see how it affects risk for the mind-robbing disease. The results challenge current thinking by showing that its not just the high glucose levels of diabetes that are a concern, said the studys leader, Dr. Paul Crane of the University of Washington in Seattle. Its a nice, clean pattern risk rises as blood sugar does, said Dallas Anderson, a scientist at the National Institute on Aging, the federal agency that paid for the study. This is part of a larger picture and adds evidence that exercising and controlling blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol are a viable way to delay or prevent dementia, he said. Because so many attempts to develop effective drugs have failed, It looks like, at the moment, sort of our best bet, Anderson said. We have to do something. If we just do nothing and wait around till theres some kind of cocktail of pills, we could be waiting a long time. About 35 million people worldwide have dementia; in the United States, about 5 million have Alzheimers disease. What causes it isnt known. Current treatments just temporarily ease symptoms. People who have diabetes dont make enough insulin, or their bodies dont use insulin well, to turn food into energy. That causes sugar in the blood to rise, which can damage the kidneys and other organs possibly the brain, researchers say. The new study, published in todays New England Journal of Medicine, just tracked people and did not test whether lowering someones blood sugar would help treat or prevent dementia. That would have to be tested in a new study, and people should not seek blood-sugar tests they wouldnt normally get otherwise, Crane said. We dont know from a study like this whether bringing down the glucose level will prevent or somehow modify dementia, but its always a good idea to avoid developing diabetes, he said. Eating well, exercising and controlling weight all help to keep blood sugar in line. The study involved 2,067 people 65 and older in the Group Health Cooperative, a Seattle-area health care system. At the start, 232 participants had diabetes; the rest did not. They each had at least five blood-sugar tests within a few years of starting the study and more after it was underway. Researchers averaged these levels over time to even out spikes and dips from testing at various times of day or before or after a meal. Participants were given standard tests for thinking skills every two years and asked about smoking, exercise and other things that affect dementia risk. After nearly seven years of follow-up, 524, or one quarter of them, had developed dementia mostly Alzheimers disease. Among participants who started out without diabetes, those with higher glucose levels over the previous five years had an 18 percent greater risk of developing dementia than those with lower glucose levels. Among participants with diabetes at the outset, those with higher blood sugar were 40 percent more likely to develop dementia than diabetics at the lower end of the glucose spectrum.

Yemens government says it uncovered al-Qaida

MAGGIE MICHAEL Associated Press SANAA, Yemen Military and intelligence officials in Yemen said Wednesday they uncovered an al-Qaida plot to fire missiles at foreign embassies in the capital and to attack naval forces guarding international shipping in the Red Sea. Details of the plot, which was reminiscent of the suicide attack on the USS Cole in 2000 that killed 17 American sailors, emerged as Yemen remains in a heightened state of alert that has seen the U.S. and British embassies evacuated and a new suspected U.S. drone strike that killed seven alleged militants from the terrorist group. The discovery of the alQaida plot prompted the Defense Ministry to step up security around the strategic Bab el-Mandeb waterway, which connects the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden. Officials banning speedboats or fishing vessels from the area, and military forces have been ordered to shoot to kill anybody who arouses suspicion or refuses to identify themselves. Defense Minister Minister Gen. Mohammed Nasser Ahmed visited the area Sunday and urged the forces, known as Battalion 117, to stay on high alert for possible suicide attacks, according to officials who spoke to The Associated Press on condition

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The allure of capturing the estimated $425 million Powerball jackpot had players in a buying frenzy Wednesday, further confirming a trend that lottery officials say has become the big ticket norm: Fatigued Powerball players, increasingly blase about smaller payouts, often dont get into the game until the jackpot offers big bucks. Meghan Graham, a convenience store worker from Brookline, Mass., has purchased nearly a dozen Powerball tickets in recent months thanks to the huge jackpots, and the third largest-ever pot was enough reason to buy again. The more it keeps increasing, that means nobody is winning a lot of people are gonna keep buying tickets and tickets and tickets and you never know, you just might get lucky if you pick the right numbers, she said. A recent game change intended to build excitement about the lottery increased the frequency of huge jackpots, and Wednesdays jackpot drawing comes only a few months after the biggest Powerball jackpot in history a $590 million pot won in Florida by an 84-year-old widow. The second largest Powerball jackpot was won in November and split between two tickets from Arizona and Missouri.

Pentagon may revise same-sex benefits

WASHINGTON (AP) The Pentagon is poised to extend health care, housing and other benefits to the same-sex spouses of military members by the end of August, but may reverse earlier plans to provide benefits to gay partners who are not married. According to a draft Defense Department memo obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, the department instead may provide up to 10 days of leave to military personnel in same-sex relationships so they can travel to states where they can marry legally. While no final decisions have been made, the memo from Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to top defense leaders would reverse an earlier plan that would allow the same-sex partners of military members to sign a declaration form in order to receive limited benefits, such as access to military stores and some health and welfare programs. The recent Supreme Court decision extending federal benefits to legally married same-sex couples eliminates the need for such a plan, Hagel said in the draft. As the Supreme Courts ruling has made it possible for same-sex couples to marry and be afforded all benefits available to any military spouse and family, I have determined, consistent with the unanimous advice of the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that the spousal and family benefits far outweigh the benefits that could be extended under a declara-

Obama cancels Putin summit amid Snowden tensions

MATTHEW LEE Associated Press disappointing decision to grant Edward Snowden temporary asylum was also a factor that we considered in assessing the current state of our bilateral relationship, it added. The Kremlin responded quickly, voicing its own disappointment with the canceled summit and blaming it on Washingtons inability to develop relations with Moscow on an equal basis. Putins foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, added that the decision was clearly linked to the Snowden case, a situation that he said wasnt of Russias making. While Snowden might have been the immediate catalyst for canceling the summit, the seeds of renewed U.S.-Russia discord were planted more than a year ago when Putin re-took the Russian presidency. On returning to power, he adopted a deeply nationalistic and more openly confrontational stance toward the United States than had his chosen successor Dmitry Medvedev, whose 2008-2012 tenure roughly overlapped Obamas first term in the White House. Where Medvedev abstained in a U.N. Security Council vote that authorized NATO airstrikes in Libya, Putin has refused repeated entreaties from Washington to allow the world body to impose even minimal sanctions on President Bashar Assads Syria. At the same time, Putins government has continued to supply its ally Assad with weapons. And it has not delivered on pledges

tion system, Hagel wrote. According to a U.S. official, the memo is under legal review by the Justice Department, and the Pentagon will not be able to take any action until that review is finished. Although we have bases and installations in all 50 states, not all state laws are equal when it comes to same sex marriage, a defense official said. That is why we are looking at providing extra leave for same sex couples who want to get married to travel to a state where same sex marriages are legal. The officials were not authorized to discuss the memo publicly, so spoke on condition of anonymity. Pentagon officials would not comment on the specifics of the memo. A Defense Department spokesman, Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen, said only that the Pentagon is working alongside the Department of Justice to implement the courts decision as quickly as possible. In February, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced that by no later than Oct. 1 the Pentagon would extend some limited benefits to same-sex partners of service members. Housing benefits were not included, but the plans called for same-sex partners to get special identification cards granting them access to commissaries and other services. The benefits would be contingent on the service member and their same-sex partner signing a declaration that they were in a committed relationship.

WASHINGTON Already faltering, President Barack Obamas five-year effort to reboot U.S.-Russian relations finally crashed Wednesday, as the White House abruptly canceled his planned face-to-face summit with Russias Vladimir Putin. The effort to upgrade the relationship has fallen victim to the rapidly shrinking common ground between the former Cold War rivals, including extreme differences over the Syrian civil war, Russias domestic crackdown on civil rights and the final straw the asylum granted to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The U.S. and Russian foreign and defense ministers will sit down in Washington later this week, but Obama canceled his planned early September summit in Moscow with Putin because of what the White House called a lack of recent progress on a wide array of critical issues. Such steps are not taken lightly, and the decision will almost certainly herald a new frostiness in already chilly ties. We have informed the Russian government that we believe it would be more constructive to postpone the summit until we have more results from our shared agenda, the White House said in a statement, citing deep differences over missile defense, arms control, trade, global security and human rights.

to coax Assad into sending representatives to talks with the opposition aimed at finding a political solution to the Syrian conflict. Obama sought to cultivate Medvedev as a friend of the United States, making significant changes to Bush administration plans for European missile defense to try to ease Russian concerns about that project, signing a new arms control treaty and famously sending then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Geneva where she proclaimed a reset in U.S.-Russia relations. Putin, however, seems to want none of the coziness that a reset would bring and has actively sought to undo previous agreements on cooperation. Under Putin, Russia has stepped up its negative rhetoric on missile defense, ended two decades of democracy and civil society training by the U.S. Agency for International Development and banned adoptions of Russian children by Americans. Andrew Kuchins, a political scientist and expert on Russian politics at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said he thinks the reset has been on hold for a while. We hit the peak at the end of 2010, and then things started going downhill gradually in 2011, Kuchins said. Then, when the announcement was made that Putin was coming back as president in the fall of 2011, the downfall of the reset got a little steeper.

WASHINGTON (AP) Smartphones dont make smart babies, an advocacy group declared Wednesday in a complaint to the government about mobile apps that claim to help babies learn. The Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, whose allegations against Baby Einstein videos eventually led to nationwide consumer refunds, is urging federal regulators to examine the marketing practices of Fisher-Prices Laugh & Learn mobile apps and Open Solutions games, such as Baby Hear and Read and Baby First Puzzle. The Boston-based group says developers are trying to dupe parents into thinking apps are more educational than entertaining. Its the campaigns first complaint to the Federal Trade Commission against the mobile app industry as part of its broader push to hold businesses accountable for marketing claims about their technology to very young children and their parents. Everything we know about brain research and child development points away from using screens to educate babies, said Susan Linn, the groups director. The research shows that machines and screen media are a really ineffective way of teaching a baby language. What babies need for healthy brain development is active play, hands-on creative play and face-to-face interaction. The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages any electronic screen time for infants and toddlers under 2, while older children should be limited to one to two hours a day. It cites one study that found infant videos can delay language development, and warns that no studies have documented a benefit of early viewing. In a statement provided to The Associated Press, Open Solutions said it agrees that electronics are not a substitute for human interaction. But it noted the many positive reviews its apps have received by customers. We also dont say get this game and let it teach your child everything, wrote the company, based in Bratislava, Slovakia. We assume (the) child is playing the game with parent/sister/baby sitter. We think we have apps that can help parents with babies, either by entertaining babies or help them see new things, animals, hear their sounds, etc.

of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. An estimated 3.5 million barrels of oil passed daily in 2010 through the Bab elMandeb strait, increasing the strategic importance of impoverished Yemen, which itself has only a relatively small production of oil and natural gas. Revenue from oil and gas production is declining, worsening Yemens ability to provide social services. The militants from the terrorist groups Yemeni branch known as al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula also were said to be plotting to use long-range missiles to target embassies and diplomats residences, or try to take foreigners as hostages, the officials said. Ahmed urged the forces to stay on alert against any sabotage operations aiming at destabilizing the country, according to the officials. Drastic security measures have been instituted across Sanaa, with multiple checkpoints set up, and tanks and other military vehicles guarding vital institutions. In Sanaa, an AP reporter said a drone buzzed over the capital for hours during the day. Residents speak of their fears about possible terrorist attacks, although life is going on as normal, with shoppers buying new clothes and food for the four-day Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr.

I cant speak to how they arrived at that number, but we think this number is very much within the realm of what was appropriate, Snitchler said. Dan Sawmiller, with the Sierra Clubs Ohio Beyond Coal Campaign, commended the commissions order but said public access is lacking in the case, leaving customers in the dark about what types of renewables are being provided, where they are coming from and at what cost. Marty Berkowitz, a spokesman for the Office of Consumers Counsel, which represents Ohio ratepayers, said the office is barred from saying how much in overcharges it asked that

FirstEnergy recoup for its 2 million customers. We are not allowed to reveal how much we asked for FirstEnergy to credit back to customers because FirstEnergy succeeded in its efforts to have the records sealed as secret, he said. Needless to say, we recommended that FirstEnergy be required to credit back much more of its charges to customers than what was ordered in todays decision. Brian Kaiser, director of green jobs and innovation for the Ohio Environmental Council, said the commission did the right thing. We think FirstEnergys games with customers money need to stop, he said. Snitchler said its unlikely the spe-

cific scenario in the FirstEnergy case which involved renewable energy credits, or RECs, purchased in 2009 to 2011 would be repeated in todays more well-developed market for solar, wind and other renewable energy sources. But he said the order still is instructive to other utilities. This would certainly give a utility the opportunity to consider how they were going to procure those RECs to make sure that they were in compliance and didnt run into a situation where they would be where we are here today, he said. Snitchler said he hopes lawmakers will take the ruling into account as they look to clarify the law.
