ODOT: Ohio littering at all-time high


BY STEPHANIE GROVES
DHI Media Staff Writer
sgroves@delphosherald.com

On a per-capita basis, it seems as if


Americans are doing far less littering
than 40 or 50 years ago. At that time,
an open car window was often looked at
as a kind of trash dispenser. Now, some
still regard it as such but it seems the
majority stow their trash while in a car
and save it for the next convenient trash
receptacle.
Meanwhile, people on the front lines
of the litter war are struggling to come
up with messages that work. Joel Hunt, a

in size and equates to 6,729 items per


mile.
According to ODOT, litter costs the
state nearly $4 million to pick up and
requires pulling skilled workers off highway repairs to clean other peoples trash,
costing Ohio residents money that could
be used to install 160 culverts, pave a
28-mile, two-lane road, or purchase 27
new snowplow trucks.
Ohio relies on its 1,400 Adopt-AHighway groups to help with litter pickup and there is at least one group in each
of Ohios 88 counties.
Each Adopt-A-Highway group volunteers to clean up a two-mile section, or
interchange, and pick up litter and debris
a minimum of four times a year for two
years. On average, Adopt-A-Volunteers
pick up 25,000 bags of trash saving
ODOT $280,000.
Some eye-opening littering statistics:
75 percent of people admit to littering in the past five years;
Eight million gallons of litter is
thrown from car windows every day;
50 percent of all littered items are

Todays joke:
One day a little girl was sitting and watching her
mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands
of white hair sticking out in contrast to her brunette
head.
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked,
Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?
Her mother replied, Well, every time that you do
something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one
of my hairs turns white.
The little girl thought about this revelation for a
while and then said, Momma, how come ALL of
grandmas hairs are white?

Toledo mayor requests help


to avoid water problems
TOLEDO (AP) Toledos mayor wants state and
federal officials, starting with President Barack Obama,
to take action in cleaning up Lake Erie and helping cities improve their water treatment operations in order to
prevent future water emergencies.
Government help is needed to preserve our health and
quality of life, Mayor D. Michael Collins said in a letter
sent to elected officials on Monday, just a week after the
citys two-day emergency left 400,000 people without
service because toxins were found in the water supply.
Toledo and many other cities impacted by this threat
need additional resources, not only to make improvements to water treatment facilities but to minimize the
economic impact insecurity that water quality concerns
can create, Collins said according to an excerpt of the
letter provided to The Blade newspaper.
Blooms of blue-green algae have been on the rise in
western Lake Erie in recent years and have become a
threat to not only drinking water but also fish and tourism.
The algae growth is fed by phosphorus mainly from
farm fertilizer runoff and sewage treatment plants,
leaving behind toxins that have contributed to oxygendeprived dead zones where fish cant survive. The toxins
can kill animals and sicken people.
Collins said he did not ask for a specific amount of
money or advocate for specific legislation in the letter
also sent to Gov. John Kasich.

summer is off to a rough start: the camp

away from a typical campfire story. This

Jays, Wildcats works in


progress after scrimmage
By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS St. Johns and Bath
met up to open the 2014 football scrimmage season Tuesday morning at
Stadium Park.
As to be expected for the first live
action, both coaches agreed their respective units are works in progress, especially considering that hitting during
practice only began Thursday.
For a first scrimmage, we did good
things and we found things we need to
work on. Thats usual, Blue Jays coach
Todd Schulte said. Well go back to
the films later and go over what we did
well and what we can do better. Well
get back out on the practice field (today)
and set about to improving our weaknesses.
Wildcat coach Bill Garland was
exceedingly happy.
We want to be two things this year:
physical and enthusiastic. We did both
on both sides of the ball today, Garland
explained. Defensively, we know we
must get better from last fall and we
started with that two weeks after last
season ended. Our guys were in good
position today to make plays and they
delivered. Offensively, we want our line
to get physical and get off the ball and
we have six backs we feel can carry the
ball. We did it all with the enthusiasm
and emotion weve been preaching.
The varsity action was one series
each of 10-plays and out, one series of
10 plays inside the opponents 40, one
series inside the foes 25 and then one
series of first-and-10.

Bath had a 12-yard touchdown pass
on the last play of the 40-and-in possession, while St. Johns had a 1-yard
touchdown run by Jorden Boone on the
last play of the 25-and-in sequence.
The Wildcats had a 3-yard TD run in
the live action.
The other part of scrimmages is
making sure your kids are emotional and
ready to play; its the first time youre

hitting someone other than a teammate,


Schulte added. I felt we were both
today, which is good.
Neither junior varsity team scored in
either a regular series-of-10 plays or the
series inside the opponents 40.
Both return to action for their second
scrimmages Friday: St. Johns at Van
Buren (6 p.m.) and Bath at Stadium Park
versus Jefferson.

BLUFFTON A Bluffton
University womens soccer
team that dropped no fewer
than six 1-goal decisions a
season ago, including three in
overtime, returns an athletic
squad that looks to turn the
tables on a 5-10 campaign
thanks to a wealth of experience, including the top goalscorer from 2013.
The midfield and defense
have the skills and experience to help Bluffton return
to its 2011 form when the
Beavers earned a spot in the
Heartland Collegiate Athletic
Conference
tournament,
advancing to the championship game where Hanover
squeaked out with a 1-0 victory after 80 scoreless minutes.

Kristen Tropf (Findlay/Van

net nine times as a fresh-

man in 2013. With experience returning throughout the


lineup, the one position that
is still looking for a suitor is keeper. Junior Ashley
Knippen (Wapakoneta) who
allowed just 1.51 goals per
contest in 2013, is spending the semester in Ireland.
Her departure has opened the
door for incoming freshman

to adjust to the speed of the

Seniors Jess Williams

Danielle McQuillin (Delta/

to wreak havoc on opposing
defenses. McQuillin scored
two goals while Williams
chipped in with an assist a

Nussbaum another skilled
and speedy forward to help
take the pressure off Tropf

PGA brought clarity to


golf, excitement to majors
By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. Great golf can lead


to short memories.
The PGA Championship provided the kind
of theater anyone could expect from a major.
Big shots. Tiny mistakes. High stakes on
every swing. Not even the confusion on the
18th hole, when the only major for professionals looked more like amateur hour, could
take away from that.
But the best ever?
Only a year ago, everyone was raving about Phil Mickelson
turning in one of the great closing rounds in a major to win the
British Open on a back nine with Adam Scott, Lee Westwood,
Henrik Stenson and Tiger Woods in his way.
Four top players with a chance in the final hour? Been there,
done that. As much as Pinehurst No. 2 is remembered for Payne
Stewarts par putt, the 1999 U.S. Open came down to Stewart,
Mickelson, Woods and Vijay Singh over the last three holes.
Woods won the 2001 Masters to complete his sweep of the
majors in a back-9 battle with Mickelson. They were No. 1 and
No. 2 in the world, joined by David Duval.
And those are just examples from the last 15 years.
This PGA Championship stood out because it delivered
great drama and great timing.
Valhalla was even more exciting because the other three
majors this year were on the dull side. This time, golf saved its
best major for last.
Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth was only compelling until
Watson turned a 2-shot deficit into a 2-shot lead around the turn
at the Masters. Martin Kaymer at the U.S. Open was exquisite
for the golf purist, a snoozer for everyone else. No one got closer
than four shots over the last 48 holes. McIlroy had a 6-shot lead
at Hoylake. That maybe moment with Sergio Garcia lasted
only as long as it took him two shots to get out of a pot bunker.

BLUFFTON The Bluffton University Lady Beavers


volleyball crew is excited to be back in the gym for another
season after an exciting ending in 2013.
With a 4-5 record in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic
Conference, Bluffton entered the conference tournament as the
6th seed with an overall record of 13-18. The young players
put it together for the next several matches and made history
as the first 6-seed to come out of the tournament
as champions. The victory clinched the automatic
qualification bid to the NCAA tournament.
The Beavers bowed out to nationally-ranked
Wittenberg in the first round, ending their season
with an overall record of 16-19.
When reflecting on last year and looking at the upcoming
season, Coach Yarnell said, We were able to play some quality opponents and grow as a team in 2013. With a large portion
of the team returning, we are optimistic and excited about the
task and gauntlet that awaits us in the coming months.
After such an exciting end to the 2013 season, the Beavers
were ready to work hard during the off-season. Lifting and
working on leadership and team chemistry were mixed in with
open gyms following the season. Bluffton travelled to Owens
Community College to conclude their spring campaign, competing in a tournament there.
Now in his 10th year at Bluffton University, Coach Yarnell
is looking forward to opening up with a tournament at home
again this year: The Sommer Center Spiketacular will be an

exciting tournament to begin the season. We want to play solid


competition and prepare for the Heartland Conference, which
opens in late September.
After graduating two captains, Lindsay Krohn and Hailey
Phillips, who were the lone seniors in 2013, there will be
several changes to the team dynamic this upcoming season.
Senior Ashley Litwiller (Hopedale, IL/Olympia) and junior
Sara Roth (Findlay/Van Buren) were named captains following the 2013 Spring season.
Coach Yarnell stated, I think Ashley and Saras
personalities and leadership styles will complement each other going forward to provide guidance
and leadership for this team.
With 10 players returning, Bluffton welcomes eight
incoming athletes to complete a roster of 18 players.
Hitting for the Beavers in the middle will be returning HCAC
First-Team junior Jenny Brown (St. Marys/Memorial) and
returning sophomore Lauren Weisgarber (Bolivar/Tuscarawas
Valley). HCAC First-Team junior Kendra Parmenter (Grove
City) will be a returning force on the outside along with
Litwiller and senior Emily Broughton (Lewisburg/TriCounty North), as well as sophomores MacKenzie McFarlin
(Ashland), Kayleigh Caito (Baltimore/Liberty Union) and
Owens transfer Bailey Dangler (Kalida). Incoming freshmen
Lyndsi Whitmore (Wapakoneta), Becca Tourney (Columbia
City, Ind.), and Mary Jo Bath (Carey) will be training as hitters
for the Beavers as well.

Browns to give QBs equal reps against Washington


BEREA (AP) Browns
coach Mike Pettine says he
expects Brian Hoyer and
Johnny Manziel to get equal
reps with the first-team
offense next Monday night
against Washington.
Manziel played with the
first-team offense during
Tuesday mornings practice
but Pettine said afterward that
no decision has been made as
to who will start the Browns
second preseason game.
But it wont necessarily
matter, as Pettine wants both
quarterbacks to get equal reps
or close to it with the firstteamers. Whether thats by
series, by quarter or by something else remains to be seen.
Pettine said theres a lot of

options on the table and the


staff would figure it out when
it meets during the teams offday on Thursday. That includes
deciding who will actually start
the game.
No matter what
happens next Monday
night, though, people
are going to tune in
to watch. Manziels
debut last Saturday
against the Lions drew 2.82
million viewers, making it
the highest-rated and mostwatched preseason game on
the NFL Network.
Quarterbacks
coach
Dowell Loggains spoke to
the media after practice, saying there was still no clearcut leader in the competition.

Loggains was in the news


after the NFL draft when
he revealed in a radio interview on ESPN Arkansas that
Manziel, before he was drafted, sent him a text
that read: I wish you
guys would come
get me. Hurry up and
draft me because I
want to wreck this
league together.
That slip by Loggains
didnt go over too well with
the Browns.
He paid his penance for
that, Pettine added. We made
him wear a visor that said, Im
a dummy for a day during the
spring with the walkthrough.
Coach Pettine has a
unique sense of humor,

Loggains added. Im trying


to get rid of (the visor). Im
waiting for someone else to
say something so I can pass it
on to the next guy.
Earlier Tuesday, the
Browns signed unrestricted
free-agent quarterback Rex
Grossman and waived quarterback Tyler Thigpen.
With so much experience
in
coordinator
Kyle Shanahans offense,
Grossman is happy to help
his fellow quarterbacks any
way he can.
If anybody has any questions or I feel the need to
maybe help out, then I will,
he said. I havent shied back
from that in the past and Im
here to just help.

Volleyball

(Continued from page 6)

After graduating two senior defenders, the Bluffton defense


will be seeing the most changes this year. Returning defensive specialists for the Beavers are junior Sarah Pridemore
(Springfield/Greenon) and sophomore Shelbi Kauffman
(Bellefontaine). Incoming back row specialists are freshmen Sydney Mohler (Lima/Central Catholic), Erin Helms
(Arlington) and Lauren Miller (Dayton/Miamisburg).
Continuing to direct the offense for the Beavers will be
junior setter Roth. Incoming freshmen Mohler and Alexa
McCourt (Toledo/Cardinal Stritch), along with sophomore
transfer Dangler, will also be training as a setter for Bluffton.
As a reward for proving themselves at the end of the
2013 season, Coach Yarnell put together another demanding
schedule for the Beavers this year. After being on the road the
majority of the 2013 season, this year Bluffton will open up
with another home tournament and will also host the HCAC/
OAC Challenge in addition to their seven other home matches.
The recently-announced HCAC Preseason Poll saw Bluffton
come in second, just two points behind 2013 regular-season
champion Defiance College with both schools collecting four
first-place votes from the coaches.
Coach Yarnell added, While it is nice to be recognized as
a potential contender within the gauntlet of the HCAC, the
preseason poll is based upon your success and potential from
the previous year and on paper. Everything still happens on the
court and we need to work hard to improve every day and continue to foster a competitive training environment to develop
our players to be the best they can be.

Soccer

(Continued from page 6)

The backfield continues to be a strength for the


Beavers with senior Jo Bondra
(Highland Heights/Mayfield)
back for her final season on
the pitch. A long-time starter
for Coach Nussbaum, Bondra
showed her versatility and athleticism on the softball field
in the spring, starting at first
base for a squad that advanced
to the Heartland Conference
championship game. Junior
defenders Marisa Aguilar
(Taylor, Mich./Divine Child)
and Virginia Keim (Dundee/
Hiland) have seen extensive
minutes on the field their first
two seasons and they continue
to improve.
The addition of Abby
Karikas (Curtice/Genoa Area)
to Blufftons program last season allowed the Beavers to
move Whitmer forward, creating more scoring opportunities for the senior who was
the second straight soccer
player to be honored with the
Kathryn E. Little Award as the
Outstanding Senior Female

Athlete at Bluffton. Maddie


Moore took home the honor
in 2013. Karikas had a tremendous freshman year and
will likely spend time at center back and in the midfield.
Sophomores Beth Snyder
(Akron, NY/Akron Central)
and Katie Roushia (Bryan),
who missed most of 2013 following an early-season injury,
will both be in the mix for
playing time in the backfield
this season.
With much of Blufftons
lineup back following a year
when the Beavers were on
the cusp of another doubledigit victory season, the
expectations are high going
into 2014. Four straight road
matches to kick off the season
set up the home opener with
Marietta which is slated for
noon Sept. 13. The Beavers
travel to defending champion
Hanover College to open the
Heartland Conference portion of the schedule on Oct.
4 before an 18-day stretch
when Bluffton is home for
five of its six conference
matches

Football

(Continued from page 6)

A transition from linebacker to offensive lineman paid


immediate dividends last year as Speice became a fixture up
front and took over at left tackle when the Beavers suffered
crucial injuries early in the season. He has also worked at
long snapper for the past two years.
A Second-Team All-HCAC honoree,
Speice provided big-league protection
for a Bluffton offense that shattered the
school record for touchdown passes in
a season as the Sheehan brothers combined to light up defenses for 23 scoring
tosses. The Beavers finished fourth in
the conference with 234 passing yards
per game.
Bluffton will kick off its 2014 campaign in Salzman Stadium Sept. 6 with

Criminal charge possible


for Stewart in Ward death
Associated Press
Tony Stewart could still face criminal
charges for running down Kevin Ward
Jr. with his sprint car, even if the 3-time
NASCAR champion didnt mean to kill
Ward, hurt him or even scare him.
Ontario County Sheriff Philip
Povero, who announced on Tuesday
that the investigation is continuing, has
said that his initial findings have turned
up nothing that would indicate criminal
intent in the crash at the Canandaigua
Motorsports Park.
But legal experts agree that does not
mean Stewart is in the clear.
The NASCAR star could be charged
with second-degree manslaughter under
New York law if prosecutors believe he
recklessly caused the death of another
person, with negligent homicide another possibility, according to criminal law
professor Corey Rayburn Yung of the
Kansas University School of Law.
The question over whether someone
was reckless is a factual one and one a
prosecutor might let a jury decide, said
Yung, who also posts at the Concurring
Opinion blog.
Athletes in competition often do
things that would get the average person
arrested think two boxers in the ring,
or a baserunner sliding into second with
his spikes high. But sometimes an act
is so far outside the bounds of accepted
sporting behavior that it becomes a
crime, as former major-leaguer Jose
Offerman learned when he was charged
with felony assault for rushing the
mound swinging a bat after he was
hit by a pitch in a minor-league game.
So Stewart would not expect to be
charged for the car-on-car bump that
sent Ward spinning into the wall. But

if, for example, he were to tell police instrument data recorders that could tell
that he saw Ward on the track and tried authorities exactly what was happening
to shower him with dirt or otherwise when Stewart hit Ward.

Ballmer becomes owner of LA Clippers


Associated Press

LOS ANGELES The


Clippers moved on from
months of ugliness Tuesday,
with Steve Ballmer officially
becoming the teams new
owner in a record $2 billion sale that ousted Donald
Sterling as the NBAs longest-tenured owner.
Sterling bought the team
in 1981 for $12 million and
presided over decades of losing seasons before engaging
in a fierce legal battle with
his estranged wife to hold on
to his most prized asset.
The team announced the
sale closed after a Los Angeles
court confirmed the authority
of Shelly Sterling, on behalf
of the Sterling Family Trust,
to sell the franchise to the former Microsoft CEO.
The NBA Board of

Governors had previously


approved the sale.
Really excited in a
pretty hardcore way to
continue the path to making the Clippers a better and
better basketball team and a
better and better citizen
of the Los Angeles community, Ballmer told
The Associated Press in
a phone interview.
Donald Sterlings attorneys werent immediately
available to comment.
Ballmer agreed to give
Shelly Sterling the title of
owner emeritus.
NBA suspends Suns P.J.
Tucker for 3 games
PHOENIX The NBA
has suspended Phoenix Suns
forward P.J. Tucker for three
games following his guilty
plea to super extreme driving while intoxicated.

The suspension will be


served at the beginning of the
coming season.
Tucker was sentenced
to three days in jail and 11
days home detention following his plea last week.
Super extreme DUI
under Arizona law is for
persons whose blood
alcohol level exceeds
.20 percent. Police say
that just after his May
10 arrest in Scottsdale,
Tucker had a blood
alcohol level of .222. The
legal limit in Arizona is .08.
Tucker has apologized to
fans and said he is taking the
necessary steps to address his
problem.
He signed a 3-year, $16.5
million contract in July.
Charlotte bids to host
future NBA All-Star game
CHARLOTTE, N.C.

Hornets owner Michael


Jordan, a 14-time NBA AllStar, is pushing to bring the
big game back to Charlotte.
The Hornets, in conjunction with the Charlotte Sports
Foundation,
announced
plans Tuesday to submit a
bid to host the NBA All-Star
Weekend in 2017 or 2018.
A contingent of Hornets
employees and city officials
flew to New York Tuesday to
deliver the bid to NBA deputy commissioner Mark Tatum
and other league executives
following a morning press
conference in Charlotte.
Whitfield estimates eight
to 10 other cities will apply
to host the game.
Charlotte hosted the NBA
All-Star Game in 1991 at
the suburban Charlotte
Coliseum, which has since
been demolished.

Cespedes homer lifts Red Sox to 3-2 win over Reds


By MARK SCHMETZER
Associated Press
CINCINNATI After being brushed back, Yoenis
Cespedes got payback.
One pitch after ducking away from Jonathan Broxtons
high-and-inside fastball, Cespedes launched a no-doubt, 433foot drive to center field with two outs in the eighth inning,
lifting the Boston Red Sox to a 3-2 win over the Cincinnati
Reds on Tuesday night.
Manager John Farrell pointed out that the eighthinning, go-ahead homer was Cespedess second in
two games, giving Boston back-to-back victories for
the first time since a five-game winning streak from
July 13-20. Cespedes hit a three-run homer in the
eighth inning of Sundays 3-1 win over the Angels.
Cespedes hit his 19th homer of the season. He has reached
base at least once in all nine games hes played for the Red Sox
since they acquired him from Oakland in a trade.
Broxtons approach was the same used by the Reds all
night, manager Bryan Price said.
I have no regrets about Broxton, Price added. He went
right after (Cespedes). We jammed him the first two times up.
We were trying to come inside on him.
Tommy Layne (1-0) got the final out of the seventh inning

PGA

(Continued from page 6)

More than the drama at Valhalla was


the guy in the starring role.
In a season filled with the unexpected
11 players ranked outside the top 100
have won on the PGA Tour McIlroys
1-shot victory over Mickelson in the
final major of the year gave golf some
clarity. There is no doubt whos the best
player in golf.
With his third straight win, McIlroy
became the first No. 1 player to win a
major since Woods won his last one at
Torrey Pines in the 2008 U.S. Open.
Of course, a great player can cause
memory lapses, too.
McIlroy is only 25, making him the
third-youngest player in the last century
to win four majors, behind Woods and
Jack Nicklaus. Woods already had the
career Grand Slam when he was 24;
while Nicklaus holds the record with
18 majors, Woods owns the definition
of dominance. He won seven out of
11 majors in one stretch and went 37
straight majors before missing his first

for the win. Broxton (4-1) was the loser.


Kojo Uehara pitched the ninth for his 26th save.
Boston starter Joe Kelly opened the interleague game
with seven straight balls. When he finally threw a strike to
Jay Bruce, Billy Hamilton stole second and went to third on
catcher Christian Vazquezs throwing error.
Kelly walked Bruce, setting up Todd Fraziers RBI single.
Devin Mesoraco followed with a run-scoring hit.
Mat Latos retired 11 straight batters before Daniel Nava
led off the seventh with a double. Xander Bogaerts
snapped a 0-for-15 slump with an RBI single.
Latos gave up five hits and one run with one walk
and five strikeouts in seven innings.
Kelly allowed five hits and two runs with three
walks and four strikeouts in six innings as the Red
Sox improved to 4-3 on their eight-game road trip.
LONG DROUGHT
Kellys first career stolen base in the third inning was the
first by a Boston pitcher since Bill Landis in 1969.
CUBAN CONNECTION
Cuban RHP Raisell Iglesias, 24, was in Cincinnati on
Tuesday for the first time since signing a 7-year contract on
June 27. Fellow Cubans and current Reds Brayan Pena and
Aroldis Chapman encouraged Iglesias to sign with Cincinnati,
he added.

cut as a pro.
In that context, McIlroy still should
be talked about in terms of potential.
The last time McIlroy reached No. 1
with this kind of authority was at the end
of 2012. He won the PGA Championship
by a record eight shot, picked up consecutive FedEx Cup playoff events and won
the European Tour finale in Dubai. And
then he changed his equipment. And he
changed management. He got engaged
and abruptly called it off.
Its no coincidence that McIlroys big
run started the week after he split with
Caroline Wozniacki. There was concern
in his camp that McIlroy was having
a hard time getting into a routine to
become the worlds best golfer when he
was flying all over the world.
He has been all about golf since,
except for the few occasions where
he gathers with friends to drink out of
golfs most important trophies. McIlroy
gave a glimpse of the latest celebration
when he tweeted three words the day
after winning the PGA.
I. Need. Coffee.

He said golf is his No. 1 priority and


he wants to stay on his great run as long
as possible. McIlroy was asked how
much more time he is spending at work.
Its hard to really say how much
more time, he replied. I guess
what else do I have to do? I get up in
the morning. I go to the golf course. I
go to the gym. Its just my life at the
minute, you know? I always feel like
Ive practiced pretty hard and done
the things that Ive needed to do. Just
seems like over the past couple of
months, Ive really just buried myself
in my golf game. And it seems to be
working.
As for the PGA Championship?
A few years ago, a small group of
veteran writers were asked to provide a
list of the top 10 majors. Every list was
different. And every list had one thing
in common a PGA Championship
was not mentioned. Perhaps that can
change over time.
Valhalla might not have been the
best major. But it wont be forgotten
any time soon.

you are. Because of
her views, he wants

should respond that
the piece of paper is an
important one to you,
and your boyfriend
should tell her hes
doing this because he
loves you and, in the
event that anything
should happen to
him, he wants to
provide for you. If
she gives you an

that youre asking for
her blessing -- not her
permission.

Stocks fall as geopolitical risks remain


NEW YORK (AP) The stock
market pulled back slightly Tuesday,
following two days of gains, as investors focused on the damage that ongoing
geopolitical tensions were causing the
global economy.
Energy stocks were among the biggest decliners, dragged down by lower
oil prices.
U.S. stock indexes opened modestly
higher but turned lower at mid-morning
and stayed there for the rest of the day.
Investors took a cue from Europe, where
Germanys benchmark index fell more
than 1 percent and Frances CAC 40 fell
nearly 1 percent.
An indicator of German investor confidence dropped to its lowest level in
20 months. Investors worried that the
Ukraine crisis will start dragging down
the German economy, Europes largest.
The continent is much more exposed to
Russia than the U.S. is. Europe also gets
most of its natural gas from Russia.
The Ukraine situation has dragged
the German stock market down more
than 8 percent from its early July peak.
The Ukraine-Russia situation may
be at a standstill politically, but it is
weighing on the German economy and,
more broadly, the eurozone, said Sean
Lynch, a managing director at Wells

SEC examining
alternative
mutual funds
WASHINGTON (AP)
Federal regulators are scrutinizing a type of mutual
fund thats potentially riskier than conventional funds
and is growing in popularity,
prompting concerns over possible harm to ordinary investors.
The
Securities
and
Exchange Commission has
disclosed that its conducting
a national sweep exam of
so-called alternative mutual
funds, focusing in a first phase
on 15 to 20 groups of funds.
The SEC official who heads
the agencys investment fund
division says the review looks
at the funds ready assets and
oversight of them by fund
boards.
The regulators also are
examining data on the use of
riskier investment strategies
by alternative funds compared
with what they disclose to
investors, the SEC official,
Norm Champ, said in a speech
in June.
The alternative funds use
investment strategies similar
to those employed by hedge
funds, which can include
commodities and complex
derivatives as well as ordinary
stocks.
The Financial Industry
Regulatory Authority, the
security industrys selfpolicing body, has issued an
investor alert telling people
to be aware of the characteristics and risks of alternative funds. Alternative funds
are not your typical mutual
funds, the FINRA alert is
titled. It warns that investors
should carefully consider
not only how an (alternative)
fund works, but how it might
fit into their overall portfolio
before investing.
The alternative funds have
attracted growing interest,
especially in the retail market. Alternative funds had
more than $300 billion in
assets as of May 31, according to Champ. Although they
accounted for only 2.3 percent
of mutual funds overall as
of December, investor inflows
into alternative funds last
year represented 32.4 percent
of the inflows for the entire
mutual fund industry. That is
five times more than in 2012.

Fargo Private Bank.


It has been a quiet week for investors overall, with little economic data
or company earnings to work through.
Absent hard data to pull the market
higher, the current trend for the market
is down, Lynch said.
Fears of a Russian invasion of
Ukraine have faded in recent days, but
worries about conflicts around the globe
are likely to keep investors on edge in
the coming weeks.
A convoy of more than 260 Russian
trucks, reportedly packed with supplies,
moved toward Russias border with
Ukraine on Tuesday, but Kiev said the
goods would only be allowed to cross if
they were inspected by the International
Red Cross. Ukraine is fearful that Russia
could use the move as a cover for sending troops into the separatist-held territory.
Investors are also watching political
machinations and violence unfold in
oil-rich Iraq. On Tuesday, that nations
embattled prime minister, Nouri alMaliki, tried to stay in power as Iraqi
politicians and the international community rallied behind a political competitor.
The Dow Jones industrial average lost
9.44 points, or 0.1 percent, to 16,560.54.
The Standard & Poors (NYSE:MHP)

500 index fell 3.17 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,933.75 and the Nasdaq composite fell 12.08 points, or 0.3 percent,
to 4,389.25.
Energy stocks in the S&P 500 fell 0.7
percent, the most of the 10 sectors in the
index. Kinder Morgan declined nearly
2 percent after rising 9 percent the
day before on news it would combine
several companies under its control.
Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC) and
Diamond Offshore Drilling (NYSE:DO)
fell more than 2 percent.
Energy stocks have declined noticeably in the last month, due largely to
falling oil and natural gas prices. Brent
crude, which is traded in the U.K. and
is considered a broader gauge of the
international oil market, is trading at a
nine-month low. U.S. crude is trading at
a seven-month low.
The price of U.S. crude oil slipped 71
cents to $97.37 a barrel Tuesday. That
followed three days of increases over
concerns about the reliability of Iraqi oil
production.
There were other signs that investors
were in a risk-off mode. The Russell
2000 index, which is made up primarily
of smaller and riskier companies, fell
0.8 percent, much more than the rest of
the market.

Flooding slows production


at Detroit automakers
DETROIT (AP) Record-setting rainfall in the Detroit area has slowed vehicle
production, automakers said Tuesday.
Chrysler reopened its Sterling Heights Assembly Plant, which makes the Chrysler
200 sedan, on Tuesday afternoon, but had to send workers home because of high absenteeism. The company said flooded roads made it difficult for workers and parts to get
to the plant. Chrysler had halted operations at the plant around 9 p.m. Monday because
of flooding.
Three other Chrysler plants, in Detroit and in the suburbs of Warren and Sterling
Heights, were running but at a slower rate than usual Tuesday evening, the company
said.
Flood damage also forced General Motors to close its Tech Center in Warren Tuesday
morning. The company told most of the 19,000 engineers, designers and others who
work at the 330-acre campus to stay home while facilities are cleaned.
Some employees began returning to the campus Tuesday afternoon and more will be
called back Wednesday, GM said. Priority was being placed on operations that directly
affect customers, including call centers and OnStar operators.
GM spokesman Bill Grotz said the flooding didnt appear to cause severe damage to
the historic campus, which was designed in the early 1950s by architect Eero Saarinen.
GM said production at local plants wasnt affected.
Fords plants were also operating normally Tuesday. Ford slowed production
Monday at four suburban Detroit plants in Dearborn, Wayne and Sterling Heights.
Assembly plants in Chicago and Louisville, Kentucky, were also impacted because of
flooding at Michigan-based suppliers.

Plant waters grow into


hot beverage market trend
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Coconut water, maple water, even birch
and cactus waters A quick inventory of
beverages in the produce section makes it
clear plant waters are rising.
Soda and non-fresh juice sales are flat or
slipping slightly, but plant-based products like
coconut water along with other alternative
beverages such as kombucha and tea-based
drinks are growing, particularly those sold
alongside your fruits and veggies, according
to data compiled by market research firm
Nielsen.
The one area of the store where we are
just seeing phenomenal growth is the produce
department, says Sherry Frey, health and
wellness expert for Nielsen.
Introduced several years ago, coconut
water has been big for a while. Maple water is
a newer entry and is essentially maple sap, the
stuff that normally is boiled down to syrup.
Brands include Vertical Water and SEVA. And
thats not the only tree water on the market.
Theres also birch water and, on the plant side,
cactus, barley and artichoke waters.
Sales of all waters, including the new products, fitness and enhanced waters, as well as
regular sparkling and still, grew 4 percent by
value and nearly 7 percent by volume since
July 2013.
Coconut water is not yet being tracked
specifically, but totals for beverages in the

produce department, which is where much


coconut water is sold, showed double-digit
growth. The value jump for all produce section beverages which includes smoothies,
fresh juices and teas as well as water was
nearly 13 percent.
Why the sudden thirst? Nutrition expert
and registered dietitian Tina Ruggiero sees it
as a trend driven by the beverage industrys
desire to find the next big thing, as well as
consumers interest in finding natural alternatives to soda. This natural beverage market
just presents a tremendous opportunity, she
says. There is a fight to create the next bestselling natural water.
All of the brands promise unique nutrition benefits, but Ruggiero advises clients
to read labels carefully, beware of the hype
and watch for calorie content. Chocolate
healthy waters may not be any better for
you than some other sweetened drink.
Plant waters are fine for recreational athletes, i.e. people who exercise less than 90
minutes a day, says Ruggiero. On the other
hand, youre also fine with good old tap
water which is much, much cheaper and
maybe a banana and/or some salted pretzels.
Does all this choice in natural beverages
make Americans No. 1 in hydration?
Ruggiero laughs. I dont know if were
the best hydrated, she says, but we sure as
heck spend a lot of money on bottled water
and beverages in general.

Curbs and sidewalks are


the price of expansion
DEAR BRUCE: I own
a property and lease half
the space. The current tenant wants to expand to the
lot next door. However, the
township says we need to
install curbs and sidewalks.
This is ridiculous because it is
on a main highway. However,
I want to keep everyone happy and have offered to help
with the high cost of installing what is needed.
Is there any way I can
avoid all this cost? Is there
any way to fight the township
on this matter? -- T.W., via
email
DEAR T.W.: To answer
your second question first,
Is there any way to fight the
township on this matter?:
Possibly, but generally speaking, it is a waste of time.
What has happened is that
subsequent to your current
arrangement, an ordinance
has been passed that says any
extension of use will require
that you install curbs and
sidewalks. You may think this
is ridiculous because its on
a main highway, but thats
not material, and keeping
everyone happy is not material either.
Is there any way to avoid
this cost? I doubt it very seriously, except by passing it
on to the current tenant who
wants to expand his use,
which is perfectly appropriate. If he wants the use, he
will have to pay.
DEAR BRUCE: In 1990,
my parents created a trust and
placed the family home in
it. When my mother passed
away in 2010, the trust was
dissolved and the family
home was placed in the name
of my sister and me with a
right of survivorship.
The value of the home
in 1990 was approximately $150,000, and when my
mother passed, it was approximately $215,000. Neither my
sister nor I live in the house
or plan to live in it since our
elderly father lives there and
we live out of state. At some
point in the future, we plan to
sell the house.
The question is whether
we owe tax on the sale of the
house and, if we do, what is
the basis? Is it when the trust
was established or when the
trust was dissolved? -- R.S.,
via email
DEAR R.S.: In 1990,
when your parents created
the trust, the house had an
established value. You said
when your mother passed
away 20 years later the value
of the house was approximately $215,000, which is a
difference of $65,000 from
1990. At that point, the taxes
should have been paid on the
$65,000.
If that wasnt the case, that
obligation is still buried into
the value passed on to you and
your sister. In the event that
one of you passes before the
house is sold, the remaining
heir will be responsible for
taxes on the entire $65,000
that is already accrued, plus
any difference in appreciation.
DEAR BRUCE: I hope
you can help us figure out
what to do. I am 76 years old,
and my husband is 78. We are
thinking about getting a trust
to avoid probate when we pass
away. We have been to many
seminars discussing this mat-

ter, and I still dont understand
why we would need one. We
have no children, and we
would be leaving the money
to charity. -- H.L., via email
DEAR H.L.: I dont see
where you have anything to
concern yourself with. You
tied it up when you said you
will be leaving the money to a
charity you decide upon.
Approach the charity as
quickly as possible when
you make the decision and
explain that you are leaving
the money to it. The charity
will be responsible for paying
whatever money is required to
probate the will. Trust me, it
will be happy to do that with
its own lawyers and without
any expense to you.
DEAR BRUCE: I own
a condominium that is worth
around $65,000, according
to the appraiser. I want to
relocate to Michigan because
I was offered a better position in my company. I have
$35,000 left on the loan. A
nice young couple offered me
$55,000 cash.
Do you think I should settle for a $10,000 loss or wait
until a better offer comes?
What if a better offer doesnt
come? The housing market
doesnt seem to be very good.
-- Peter, via email
DEAR PETER: Your
problem is a simple one. The
appraisal of $65,000 is strictly
a matter of guessing and not
written in stone. You want to
go to Michigan for a better
job, you have $35,000 left
on the loan, and youve been
offered $55,000 cash. That
seems to be a no-brainer. It
would be different if the market was on a definite uphill,
but that doesnt seem to be
the case.
You never know when
you buy real estate whether
its going to go up, down or
stay the same. In this case,
it apparently went down. If
your investigation is correct,
take the $55,000, pay off the
mortgage and get on with your
new life.
DEAR BRUCE: Does it
really make a difference if
you earn a high school diploma versus getting a GED?
-- Harold
DEAR HAROLD: They
are both valuable tools, but
given the choice between
the diploma and the GED,
I would go for the diploma
every time.
A General Educational
Development certificate is for
someone who is not able to
complete high school for any
number of reasons. If you
can take the four years, by all
means do so.

Authorities say Robin Williams hanged himself


SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP)
Robin Williams personal assistant
found the actor who was struggling
with depression dead in a bedroom
of his San Francisco Bay Area home,
officials said Tuesday.
Williams wife likely was home at
the time he killed himself but was
unaware, Marin County Sheriffs Lt.
Keith Boyd said.
Williams was last seen alive by his
wife Sunday night when she went to
bed, Boyd said. She woke up the next
morning and left, thinking he was still
asleep elsewhere in the house.
Shortly after that, Williams personal
assistant came to the Tiburon home
and became concerned when Williams
failed to respond to knocks at a door.
The assistant found the 63-year-old
actor clothed and dead in a bedroom.
Boyd said all evidence indicates

some type of rescue mission of the Yazidis
on the mountain, they would assess the
feasibility of a rescue or what one might
look like. They also would assist in the
ongoing effort to evaluate the use of airstrikes as part of the mission to protect the
Yazidis from attacks by the Islamic State
militants.
Hagel referred to the 130 as assessors.
The additional troops arrived Tuesday
in the city of Irbil, well east of Sinjar.
They were to work with representatives
of the State Department and the U.S.
Agency for International Development to
coordinate plans with international partners and non-government organizations to
help the trapped Yazidi civilians on Sinjar
Mountain.
The move shows the Obama administration is weighing the impact and implications of several days of targeted airstrikes
on the Islamic State fighters and how that
has affected U.S.-backed Kurdish forces
opposing them in northern Iraq.
President Barack Obama has said
repeatedly he will not send ground combat
forces back into Iraq.
One immediate dilemma was the fate
of thousands of displaced Yazidis in the
Sinjar area who have been provided with
food and water delivered by U.S. cargo
planes in recent days. Washington also was
considering how to increase its military
assistance to the Kurds, whose militia is
outgunned by the militants.
