Two-week
hearing for
condemned
man
CHEYENNE (AP) — A federal judge has scheduled a
two-week hearing on claims
by Wyoming’s lone death
row inmate that he didn’t
get a fair trial before a state
court jury sentenced him to
death nearly 10 years ago.
Lawyers representing
inmate Dale Wayne Eaton
have listed scores of witnesses they intend to call at
the hearing, set to start July
30 before U.S. District Judge
Alan B. Johnson in
Cheyenne.
Eaton, 68, is challenging in
federal court the constitutionality of the 2004 death
sentence he received in state
court for the 1988 rape and
murder of Lisa Marie
Kimmell, 18, of Billings,
Mont.
Eaton’s lawyers say the
witnesses they intend to call
will testify about different
aspects of Eaton’s trial,
criminal history and personal life. The lawyers
intend to show that if
Eaton’s trial team had painted a more complete portrait
of his tortured life, at least
one juror might have voted
against putting him to
death.
For example, one witness
is prepared to testify that he
saw a group of boys strip
Eaton when he was a child
in the 1950s and rub his private parts with stinging
thistles. Other witnesses
include Eaton’s ex-wife and
other relatives who can talk
about his mental state.

Dayton Days
set to bring
fun for entire
family
BY HANNAH WIEST
THE SHERIDAN PRESS
DAYTON — Big city folk who turn up their noses at small town life have
never been to an event like Dayton Days.
It may not be a big name concert with a dazzling light show or a water park
with the latest, greatest water slide thrills, but it is fun. It is fun with neighbors and friends who have a lengthy history of reveling in the one-golf-club
Cow Pie Classic, the silliness of a duck race and the pure Americana of a
parade and a concert in the park.
“It’s a family fun, small-town-at-its-best event,” Dayton Town Clerk Linda
Lofgren said.
SHERIDAN — Two
Sheridan companies were
among five Wyoming firms
to graduate from a recent
workshop aimed at increasing their capacity for international exports.
Representatives from
EMIT Technologies and
Tom Balding Bits and Spurs
traveled to Casper last
month to participate in
Wyoming ExporTech, a customized workshop that
enabled them to create a
plan to export their products and then have it
reviewed by a panel of
experts.
Wyoming ExporTech is a
collaborative effort of the
Wyoming Business Council,
Manufacturing Works and
the Small Business
Administration’s
Development Center.
Cindy Garretson-Weibel,
agribusiness director at the
Wyoming Business Council,
said the workshop helps
businesses build an export
plan from the ground up.
“We put them in contact
with a host of resources —
everything from marketing
to finding a freight forwarder to financing
options,” she said. “We also
assign them a coach who
encourages them and provides answers to questions
and sort of prods them
along.”

Expanding cultural understanding
Up With People looking for families to host participants
BY CHRISTINA SCHMIDT
THE SHERIDAN PRESS
SHERIDAN — Up With People will perform in Sheridan Aug. 16 and 17 and is looking for host families for cast members.
Approximately 100 cast members and staff
will arrive in Sheridan Aug. 12 and stay
through Aug. 19.
During the week, the group will participate in various community service projects
and present two theatrical shows.
Host families are needed to house one or
more students from the cast. Cast members
represent 20 countries and more than 25
states and are between the ages of 17 and 29.
“It is a great opportunity to experience
other cultures while sharing your own,”
explained Misael Oliver, promotion representative for Up With People. “I can honestly
say that the dozens of families who have
opened their homes to me during my time
with Up with People is one of the most
meaningful and memorable experiences I
have had. I still stay in contact with many of
them and I believe they will remain lifelong
friends.”
Local host families are asked to provide
somewhere to sleep, local transportation at
the beginning and end of each day, as well
as breakfast and most dinners.
During the day, cast members will be participating in regional learning, community
service and show preparation, while most
evenings cast members will be at home with
the family to participate in their activities
and interests.

DAYTON: Weekend wraps up with a water fight
FROM 1
This year marks the 37th Annual Dayton Days, and the
theme — Tongue River Eagles Soar — is sure to fill the
weekend’s events with true blue hometown pride from
the Cow Pie Classic and pet parade Friday evening until
everyone goes home drenched and smiling after the
famed water fight at Town Hall Sunday afternoon.
Dayton Days has a little something for everyone —
golfers, runners, music lovers, children and even llamas
and turtles, event organizer Bob Alley said.
For 10 or 11 years, the kickoff event has been the Cow
Pie Classic.
True to its name, there are, indeed, cow pies involved.
Contestants will choose one golf club, be it a nine-iron, a
putter or a sand wedge, and head out to the Horseshoe
Ranch for a round of golf, country style.
Tee boxes may be a tuft of weeds, a clump of dirt or a
cow pie. Each golfer gets one stroke with one club to get
as close to the designated pins as possible. As many as 50
or 60 golfers stamp around an open field, finishing the
night with a family barbecue.
Also on Friday is the pet parade in Scott Park.
Children can dress up their pets — any pet — and show
them off. For 37 years, the pet parade has been a hallmark event of Dayton Days with cows, llamas and turtles joining the fun. The pet parade will be followed by a
kid-friendly movie in the park at dusk. Bring a blanket
and some snacks and curl up under the stars for a night
with movie stars.
Saturday will offer a full day of fun, starting with the
Rotary Pancake Breakfast. With full bellies, everyone
will be able to enjoy the Dayton Days Mile Race that
starts above the high school, the Dayton Days parade
down Main Street, a duck race, a 3-on-3 volleyball tournament and music provided by the Drum and Bugle
Corp. and Dave Munsick and Sons.
Longtime coaches Larry and Diane Moser will lead the
parade as grand marshalls. Richard Gruber, who served
as an all-sports coach and superintendent in the 1950s
and 1960s, will join the parade, as well, to contribute to
the Tongue River High School pride.
On Sunday, the community will gather at Town Hall
for a high powered water fight.
Three-man teams will face each other and use water
from fire hoses provided by the Dayton Volunteer Fire
Department to push a 16-gallon keg hanging on a wire
stretched over the teams into the opposing team’s territory.
“Everybody looks forward to it,” Alley said. “Just like
Sheridan-Wyo-Rodeo Week is a big deal in Sheridan,
Dayton Days is a big deal for the people out here.”

UW gets $1M gift from
Osher Foundation
2 accused of involvement in
BB gun shooting of kids
LARAMIE (AP) — The Bernard
Osher Foundation has given $1 million to the University of Wyoming to
establish an endowment to support
scholarships for nontraditional students re-entering the university.
The grant permanently establishes
the Osher Re-entry Scholarship
Program that to date has supported a
total of 36 students.
The program provides scholarship
support for students pursuing their
first bachelor’s degree after a significant break in their studies.
“Re-entry students” are defined as
individuals who have experienced a
cumulative gap in their postsecondary
education of five or more years and
who want to resume their undergraduate education. The program benefits
students ages 25 to 50 who have years
of employability ahead of them.
POWELL (AP) — Prosecutors are
seeking the arrests of a Frannie man
accused of repeatedly shooting two
children with a BB gun and the girlfriend who is accused of encouraging
him to do it.
The Powell Tribune reports prosecutors are seeking the arrests of
Michael Harvey and Teresa Hart after
a parole agent reported finding them
together in violation of their bond
conditions. Harvey had been free on a
$7,500 cash bond. Hart was free on a
$20,000 unsecured bond.
Sheriff ’s officials say Harvey is suspected of punishing a 6-year-old boy
and a 3-year-old girl by shooting them
with a BB gun. The children’s relationship to Harvey wasn’t immediately clear.
Harvey has pleaded not guilty to
child abuse. Hart missed a Friday
hearing when she was due to enter a
plea.
State plans meetings on
Boysen State Park
master plan
RIVERTON (AP) — The state of
Wyoming plans a series of public
meetings to discuss development of a
new master plan for Boysen State
Park.
Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites
and Trails plans to hold meetings in
central Wyoming next month.
The first meeting will be Aug. 5 in
Riverton. Other meetings are Aug., 6
in Thermopolis and Aug. 7 in Casper.
All workshops start at 6:30 p.m.
Participants will see a presentation
on the project and an overview of the
work that’s already been performed
and state officials will take public
comments.
CULTURE: Both families, students benefit from program
FROM 1
Oliver said host families and students both benefit from
the experience, sharing information about their respective
cultures, traditions, local attractions and personal backgrounds.
“These kids go though quite a bit to be accepted into Up
With People so you are dealing with bright young people
who interact well with kids and everyone,” Julie Erusha
said.
Erusha is a Sheridan resident who is currently serving
as a host home to Up With People staff member Lorna
Murphy.
“They are just lovely to be around,” Erusha added.
“Right now I am hosting a girl from Ireland and a boy from
Texas and exchanging everything from ideas to recipes. I
would definitely encourage people to do it. It is really an
enriching experience.”
Each host family will receive two complimentary tickets
to the Up with People Show held at Sheridan Junior High
School Early Auditorium Aug. 16 and 17 at 7 p.m.
Those interested in hosting are encouraged to contact

D
espite Wyoming’s friendly
landscapes, welcoming hills
and cozy downtowns, this
state does not always take
kindly to outsiders. Especially outsiders who tell them what is wrong
with the state and how to fix it.
Liz Cheney recently announced
her intentions to run against U.S.
Sen. Mike Enzi in 2014.
Cheney, the daughter of former
Vice President Dick Cheney, isn’t
from Wyoming. She was born in
Madison, Wis., graduated from
McLean High School in Virginia
and received her bachelor’s degree
from Colorado College. She went
on to earn her law degree from the
University of Chicago Law School.
Cheney did not move to
Wyoming until the fall of 2012,
less than one year ago.
She also moved to Jackson —
barely considered part of “real”
Wyoming by many of the state’s
other municipalities.
There is a word for people who
move to an area just to run for
office and it is not a nice one.
Challenging Enzi, too, will likely
prove to be an unwise choice.
Enzi is a well-known — and wellliked — member of Wyoming’s
U.S. Congressional delegation.
According to results released by
the Democratic firm Public Policy
Polling Tuesday, Enzi leads
Cheney 54 percent to 26 percent
among Republican primary voters.
In addition, 66 percent of
Republicans approve of Enzi’s job
performance.
Polling also demonstrates the
state’s unwillingness to accept
Cheney as one of them. Thirty-six
percent consider her to be a
Wyomingite while 44 percent do
not.
Enzi, too, has roots here. While
he was born in Bremerton, Wash.,
he was raised in Thermopolis. He
attended elementary school there
and graduated from Sheridan
High School before earning
degrees from George Washington
University and the University of
Denver.
He also served in the Wyoming
Air National Guard and now lives
in Gillette.
While Cheney has never been
elected to serve in public office,
Enzi started out as mayor of
Gillette in 1974. He was then elected to the state House of
Representatives followed by the
Wyoming Senate in the 1990s. He
has served in the U.S. Senate since
1997, giving him a seniority that
counts for something, unlike in
the House. Cheney, if elected,
would be kept on the back bench.
Cheney is even getting knocked
down by her own party. The
National Republican Senatorial
Committee and Wyoming
Republicans have both said they
would support the incumbent.
Former presidential candidate
and Arizona Sen. John McCain
has also announced his intentions
to back Enzi.
While former Democratic Gov.
Dave Freudenthal is well-respected in the state, his shot at winning
in 2014 against Enzi is still slim.
Enzi has a 54 to 31 percent advantage over Freudenthal in the latest
polls.
Yet Freudenthal leads Cheney 45
to 42 percent in the early polling.
Cheney has a long road ahead,
likely to a resounding defeat, in
the 2014 elections.

“I want to bring my vision to the people of
the city of New York. I hope they are willing
to still continue to give me a second
chance.”
— Anthony Weiner after finding himself
caught in another sexting scandal like the
one that destroyed his congressional career,
saying he won’t drop out of the race for
mayor of New York.
“Legalizing only the DREAMers is not
enough. I cannot imagine for one minute
that Republicans, who also honor the sancti-
R
Indeed we do, but not all sins are created
equal. And though we are quick to forgive
the repentant — and do believe in second
chances — we also seem to apply different
standards to men and women.
There may be legitimate reasons for this,
though they aren’t likely to be popular. We
expect more of women because civilization
depends on it. For centuries, we’ve relied on
women to rein in men’s passions, to channel
men’s libidos in constructive ways — building suspension bridges, for instance.
Our available data on the double standard
is limited in part because fewer women than
men are in public office. But also, in the
main, women don’t behave as men do. The
male libido is simply greater, which
accounts for both the Sistine Chapel and
Attila the Hun.
Popular culture seems determined to
change this timeless truth by encouraging
girls to be more like boys, and vice versa.
The stakes are clear: If girls can be portrayed as just as bad as boys, then males
have no obligation to mitigate their natural
dominant, exploitative inclinations.
There has been some measurable success
in this regard. Recent reports indicate that
college-age girls are increasingly promoting
casual sex these days. Even so, no woman in
public office thus far has texted her Very
Own Self to strangers, as Anthony Weiner
did.
If there were such an individual, it is certain that she would not be forgiven. Imagine
any woman in public office today comparably exposing herself. Redemption? No. Way.
The double-standard test is (sort of) play-

More on this in a moment, but first a
quick visit down South, where Mark
Sanford orchestrated his own forgiveness,
winning election to Congress, where he
served before becoming South Carolina’s
governor and Argentina’s ardent visitor.
Sanford won despite having wept his way
through a cringe-inducing confession and
having been accused of trespassing on his
ex-wife’s property. Why did voters elect such
a man?
First, because, his weaknesses notwithstanding, Sanford is admired by conservatives for his cost-cutting history. Second, his
offense, though it included abandoning the
state for several days and lying about it,
involved something less tawdry. He simply
fell in love.
Importantly, he and his now-fiancee were
equals in a relationship absent any hierarchical power. This is key to the real issue
afoot. The current redemption fest, including the San Diego mayor who harassed
women in his employ and thinks an apology
ought to wrap things up (and, lest we forget,
Bill Clinton’s imbroglio with an intern),
isn’t about hypocrisy or crassness or cavalier apologies.
It’s about power.
One could argue that Weiner was merely
flirting with Twitter “friends” who, presumably, were interested in his bona fides. Then
again, Weiner was a congressman, not a frat
boy on spring break. There really is, or
should be, a distinction.
And though purchased sex implies a
mutually agreeable, if illegal, transaction,
the power differential between an elected
official and a prostitute is explicit.
But turn on the TV and you’ll hear that no
one really cares anymore, because it’s “only
sex.”
If ever two words were mismatched.
There is never, ever “only” sex, especially
for women, who are, indeed, different from
men. We can argue otherwise until all the
little dissertations cry “oui, oui, oui” all the
way home. But the fact that the double standard persists in the human psyche, not to
mention nature, demonstrates this unfair
truth. This is why we have laws to level the

Perhaps the next step in this evolutionary
process is not to make women more like
men to neutralize the double standard but to
place more women in public office, the better to demonstrate the behaviors necessary
to maintaining a civil society.

Fire site reveals charred
landscape, rough terrain
YARNELL, Ariz. (AP) — The location sits in a basin surrounded on three sides by charred, boulder-strewn mountains. Blackened cactuses appear as if they melted in the
flames. Rocks the size of pickup trucks are perched precariously on the steep hillsides. An American flag flaps in the
wind near a Granite Mountain Hotshots T-shirt that hangs
on a burned cactus as a makeshift memorial to the men
who died there.
Authorities provided a tour Tuesday of the location
where 19 elite firefighters, known as Hotshots, were
engulfed in flames last month while protecting a former
gold rush town in Arizona from a volatile wildfire.
The site provides perspective of the terrain crew members faced as they found themselves trapped by a wall of
fast-moving flames while erratic winds whipped the blaze
in all directions.
Officials speculated the fire quickly shifted toward them,
forcing the men to retreat into the bowl beneath the mountains, the hillsides way too steep to even attempt to outrun
the flames.
“It was like a blowtorch in a tunnel,” said Jim Paxon, a
spokesman for the Arizona Division of Forestry, which was
managing the fire around Yarnell, about 80 miles northwest of Phoenix. “The fire’s rate of speed and intensity
was beyond comprehension.”
Prescott Wildland Fire Chief Darrell Willis, who helped
form the Hotshots crew, said it appeared the men quickly
tried to clear the area of scrub and brush that could fuel
the fire, using hatchets, chain saws and shovels, hoping
they could endure the intense heat as the blaze bore down.
They deployed their emergency shelters, but the heat was
too much. All 19 died at the scene. The 20th crew member,
who was serving as a lookout, was the only survivor.
The blaze ended up destroying more than 100 homes
before it was fully contained on July 10.
The fire began with a lightning strike on Friday, June 28,
and worsened by the hour through the weekend — at one
point causing flames up to 20 feet high. The Granite
Mountain Hotshot crew was called in on the morning of
June 30 to help protect the town of Yarnell in the foothills
south of Prescott.
Afternoon thunderstorms and associated winds of more
than 50 mph whipped the fire into an inferno as 19 of the
Hotshots climbed over a ridge.
They likely saw the fire advancing on a nearby ranch,
and were headed there to save the structure when the blaze
suddenly turned toward them, Willis said. The fire forced
them to retreat to the relatively flat area surrounded by
mountains where they found themselves trapped, he said,
adding that he lost “19 adopted sons” on that fateful day.
“The heat was so intense their shelters broke down,”
Willis said as he stood on the edge of the site, now encircled by a chain link fence.
A ranch that was to serve as the Hotshots safety zone
could be seen about 500 yards in the distance. Willis said
the fire hooked around the men, blocking their way out of
the fire’s path and backing them up to the mountains.
“They protected themselves as a last resort,” he said. “I
don’t think they were aware of how quick” the fire was
moving.
“This is the most extreme fire behavior I have ever witnessed,” Willis added. “I’m sickened. I’m saddened.”
A national team of investigators has finished gathering
evidence from the scene and interviewing other firefighters.

2 get lost on
Maine hike
ROQUE BLUFFS,
Maine (AP) —
Authorities say two
women who got lost
while hiking in a Maine
state park died in a car
accident shortly after
their rescue.
Thirty-seven-year-old
Amy Stiner, of Machias,
and 38-year-old Melissa
Moyer, of Sunbury, Pa.,
were killed Tuesday
night when they drove
their car into the ocean
after driving the wrong
way down a road. The
county sheriff says
Moyer was five months
pregnant.
Officials say the
women became lost
while hiking near Roque
Bluffs State Park. A
landowner found them
and their dog and gave
them a ride to a home.
Guinness record
holder for shoes killed
in California
MENIFEE, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California
woman who held a Guinness World Record for collecting shoe-related items has been found dead in
her pool, and her former boyfriend has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports 58-year-old
Darlene Flynn was found dead at her Menifee home
on Monday. She had suffered blunt-force injuries.
Sheriff ’s deputies answering a report of an argument found her body in the backyard pool and saw a
shirtless man run from the property.
Twenty-nine-year-old Justin Smith was later
arrested near a highway. He remains in jail
Wednesday.
Acquaintances tell the Press-Enterprise the couple
had frequent arguments and had broken up.
The Guinness Book of World Records says Flynn
had nearly 15,000 shoe-related items, including shoeshaped furniture, lamps and jewelry.
HanesBrands buying
Maidenform for $547.6M
WINSTOM-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — HanesBrands is
buying underwear maker Maidenform Brands Inc.
for approximately $547.6 million.
The deal would add brands like Maidenform,
Flexees and Self Expressions to the Hanesbrand roster that includes Playtex, Bali, Champion,
Wonderbra and its namesake Hanes.
“This business is a natural fit into our core business and meets all of our acquisition criteria,”
HanesBrands Chairman and CEO Richard Noll said
in a statement.
HanesBrands will pay $23.50 per share, a 23 percent
premium to Maidenform’s $19.09 Tuesday closing
price. The companies put the deal’s value at about
$575 million.
Shares of Maidenform jumped $4.30, or 22.5 percent, to $23.39 in morning trading. HanesBrands’
stock also bounced, rising $4.77, or 8.9 percent, to
$58.13.
Maidenform — which had been evaluating its
strategic options — has about 23.3 million outstanding shares, according to FactSet.
HanesBrands said Wednesday that Maidenform’s
average-figure bra business will complement its fullfigure bra collection and that its shapewear will be a
nice addition as well.
HanesBrands anticipates being able to potentially
lower the costs of Maidenform products for retailers
and consumers.

WHY PUBLIC NOTICES ARE IMPORTANT |
Public notices allow citizens to monitor their government and make sure that it is
working in their best interest. Independent newspapers assist in this cause by
carrying out their partnership with the people’s right to know through public
notices. By offering an independent and archived record of public notices,

Newspapers have the experience and expertise in publishing public notices and

trustworthy and neutral source that ably transfers information between
government and the people.
Public notices are the lasting record of how the public’s resources are used and are
presented in the most efficient and effective means possible.

FROM THE SHERIDAN PRESS
2003 — Temperatures exceeded 100 degrees nine days
this month — six of the nine just last week and there
appeared to be little relief in the short term from the
relentless heat.
2008 — With the blow of a whistle and the splash of 15
senior citizens jumping into the Sheridan Junior High
School swimming pool, the triathalon kicked off the 2008
Wyoming Senior Olympics.
2012 — Construction of the 53,000 square foot, $15.2
million Edward A. Whitney Academic Center at Sheridan

Biker charged with throwing weight at window
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A member of a Colorado motorcycle club
is charged with throwing a fourpound metal bar at the driver’s side
window of a vehicle on Interstate
90 in Billings.
The Billings Gazette reports 44year-old Todd Charles Schisler
appeared in Justice Court Tuesday
on a felony criminal endangerment
charge.
His bail was set at $5,000.
Prosecutors say Schisler was
among a group of motorcyclists
stopped at about 12:30 p.m. Monday.
The driver of the vehicle whose
window was smashed told officers
the motorcyclists were driving
extremely aggressively on Highway
212 and on Interstate 90, including
passing in no-passing zones and
passing between vehicles traveling
next to each other on the interstate.
The victim said one of the bikers
pulled something from his vest and
threw it at his window, causing it

What is the best way to
keep fresh herbs from wilting
and rotting?
1. Loosen them up: As soon
as you get herbs home,
remove from the packaging
or take off rubber bands or
twist ties to
prevent
damage.
Skip washing until
you are
ready to
use. Fresh
herbs prefer to be

2. Basil and mint: These do
best stored out of the refrigerator. Trim the bottom of
the stems. Place in a glass
and add about an inch of
water to cover the bottom of
the stems. Cover the leaves
with a plastic bag. Store at
room temperature, out of
direct sunlight. Replenish the
water daily. They’ll keep up
to two weeks.
3. Most other herbs: Wrap
in a barely damp paper towel
(or lightweight cloth towel)
and store airtight in the
refrigerator in a plastic bag
or covered container. Check
every few days and moisten
as needed. They’ll keep up to
two weeks.
4. Too many herbs? If you
have more than you can use,
wash, dry, finely chop and
combine with a little olive oil.
Freeze in ice cube trays. Pop
them out when you want to
add herbs to a sauce, salad
dressing or rub.
5. In a pinch: Dried herbs
can be used instead of fresh
in most recipes. Substitute 1
teaspoon for each tablespoon
of fresh.
This quick-to-fix vinaigrette doubles as a marinade
and dipping sauce. Adjust the
sugar to taste.

Clueless on price matching policies
D
o you take advantage of price matching
when you shop? It’s a great way to streamline your shopping – you can buy at a
store that’s perhaps more convenient to
you, while enjoying the lower sale price you
found elsewhere. At least, that’s how it’s supposed to work. What happens when it doesn’t?
Dear Jill,
Why are so many employees clueless about
their own policies? One store I shop has a policy that they will match the price of any competitor’s ad, as well as some online retailers’
prices. I found a video game online that was
just a great deal. But I didn’t want to pay to
shop it, so I went to the store and asked them
to match it. The clerk was clueless. She asked
for a manager who said they do not match
prices on the Internet. I did not have their policy with me and they refused to check. I came
home and called the corporate line, and they
said the store was wrong. What a pain this is
when you waste time and gas.
Ofelia C.
I agree that there are few things more
frustrating than a shopping trip gone
wrong – especially when you encounter an
unexpected battle in the checkout lane.
Couponers and price-conscious shoppers take
the time to research stores’ policies, and at
times you may feel that you know the store’s
policy better than the person standing in front
of you does.
While my price-matching adventures usually go well, I have learned that it’s always
worth taking a few things
with me too to help the trip
go as smoothly as possible:
1. Take the competitor ad
with you. You might think
this tip would almost go
without saying, but several
major chains advertise “adfree price matching.” In my
JILL
experience, this opens the
CATALDO
door for potential issues.
|
Without the ad in hand,
expect a longer-than-normal
wait if the cashier has to
look up or verify each item’s price. And, if
you’re matching an online price, print a copy
of the ad in question, or be prepared to pull
up the ad on a smartphone.
2. Take a copy of the store’s policy. If you’re
faced with resistance at the register, pulling
out a copy of the store’s policy on price matching makes it difficult for a cashier to say the
store doesn’t match prices when their policy
clearly states that they do.
It’s never my intention to generalize about
all employees anywhere at any store. Most
cashiers are knowledgeable, and I especially
enjoy the ones who commend me on my savings at the checkout. But as my readers have
shared, the cashiers who don’t know the policy can inadvertently make life difficult for
shoppers who are simply trying to utilize a
service that the store offers.
Another reader shares some thoughts:
Dear Jill,
I could kind of understand it if new
cashiers weren’t totally familiar with stores’
policies on things like taking competitors’
coupons and matching prices from other
stores, but what burns me up is when I see a
cashier with a nametag that says “Ten Years
of Service” who is still insisting the store
doesn’t do something their policy says they do.
I always take a printout of the policy with me
and will stand there and calmly wait and wait
and wait until either the cashier decides to
believe me or calls another employee over who
will.
With this economy, people are going to want
to save money any way they can. It should not
be a surprise to the store when shoppers only
want to do what the store’s website says they
can do.
Laine D.
Smart Living Tip: Stores with policies to
match competitor prices, whether it’s an
advertised price or accepting a competitor
store coupon, are doing so to entice shoppers
to remain at their store to shop versus heading across town to shop elsewhere. Don’t feel
as though you’re doing something wrong or
“taking advantage” of the store by trying to
exercise these customer-friendly policies –
even if your cashier happens to be less than
friendly.

Troop home finale tonight after 0-3 road trip
FROM STAFF REPORTS
THE SHERIDAN PRESS | BRAD ESTES
Sheridan catcher Skyler Holwell and pitcher Drew Adriaens are two of the nine senior Troopers that will play their
final game at Thorne-Rider Stadium tonight. The Troop take the field against the Casper Oilers at 6 p.m.
SHERIDAN — After three losses in
the southernmost portion of the
state, Sheridan returns home for the
final time tonight.
After being swept by Laramie
Monday, the Troopers (19-23, 2-2 in
League AA) lost to Cheyenne Post 6,
14-4, Tuesday night in Cheyenne,
dropping to .500 in conference as
they prepare for their final two
games of the season. They get two
tries against the Casper Oilers to
come out on the right side of League
AA play, beginning tonight at
Thorne-Rider Stadium.
The Oilers defeated the Gillette
Roughriders 4-3 Tuesday in Casper.
In Cheyenne, Sheridan was outmatched from the start, giving up
seven runs in the first inning as Post
6 improved to 3-1 in league play.
Casper is 1-2 in conference, with
Gillette following in standings as of
Wednesday at 1-2, with their lone win
coming over Sheridan July 2.
Skyler Holwell took the start for
Sheridan, lasting just three innings
as the runs piled up among seven
hits and five walks. When Post 6
added two in the third, all nine runs
were earned for Holwell and he
departed.
Sheridan’s offense found life in the
top of the fifth inning when Tony
Mort’s double scored Matt Mullinax
from first. Mort scored on Skyler
Holwell’s single, and Connor
McCafferty scored Will O’Dell and
Holwell with a single to right.
Cheyenne added four more in the
bottom of the sixth and another in
the seventh to force the 10-run rule
and end the contest.
Despite fielding an error-free game,
Sheridan walked seven Post 6 batters
as Cheyenne went 14-31 at the plate.
Post 6 pitcher Charlie O’Grady went
six innings and allowed four runs on
six hits. Sheridan defeated Cheyenne
(44-22 overall) in early May in the two
teams’ only other matchup this year.
Tonight’s first pitch is set for 6
o’clock. Sheridan fell to Casper (48-21
overall) two weeks ago in Cheyenne,
15-1. Gillette is at Post 6 tonight.

Head target rule bothers
Cowboys defensive back
LARAMIE (AP) — Marqueston
Huff sees the way football is
changing, and he doesn’t like it.
On Monday, referee Walt
Anderson outlined new rule
changes at Mountain West Media
Days in Las Vegas. Rather than
introducing a new rule, the most
noteworthy amendment added a
stricter penalty to an existing one.
This season, a defensive player
that targets the head of a ball carrier will be assessed a 15-yard personal foul, just like before.
He’ll also be ejected.
“Especially with the ejections, I
really don’t think it’s fair to us as
defensive players,” Huff said. “It’s
pretty hard. They’re acting like
we have five seconds to make up
our mind on, ‘I’m going to hit him
here, or I’m going to hit him
there.’ To me, if you’re going to
make all these rules, just make it
flag football.”
The conference’s referees are
being trained to identify dangerous tactics by defenders, including
launching themselves into the ball
carrier above the shoulder and
using the crown of the helmet as a
weapon.
A penalized hit could end up
costing Wyoming in multiple
games, too. If the offending player
is ejected for targeting in the second half of a game, he will also be
ineligible to play in the first half
of the next game. A coach will
have the option to challenge the
play in hopes of having the ejection reversed, but the penalty
itself will not be nullified. And
just like with other challenges, a
coach will not be able to challenge
unless he has a timeout.
Obviously, these stricter measures could potentially cripple a
defense’s depth — and with a team
that cannot afford to lose its key
players, Wyoming coach Dave
Christensen knows the Cowboys
will have to tread lightly.
“They have to have the understanding that now that penalty’s
going to bring more than 15 yards.
Now you’re going to lose a game
— you’re going to be out for a
game,” Christensen tells the
Casper Star-Tribune. “We’re certainly not at a position depth-wise
where we can have players stand
on the sideline because of targeting penalties.”

enters their season finale event having
enjoyed plenty of time in the friendly
confines of Thorne-Rider all season,
playing 11 doubleheaders at home in
2013. They carry a 14-27 record on the
year, playing well lately, winning five
of their last seven games.
American Legion Post 7 director Dan
Bilyeu said that the tournament has
been in Sheridan almost every year
since its inception eight years ago, and
they’ll continue to do what they can to
keep the event here.
“We like to host a tournament here
in Sheridan, we don’t ever have a problem getting one of these tournaments
because teams like to come up here,”
he said. “It does help us out financially, but more importantly it’s good for
the community, and good for American
Legion baseball.”
Tournament director Matt Lube said
that there will be plenty of family
activities along with Thursday and
Friday night games. Sheridan plays
Casper Thursday and Laramie Friday,
both at 7 p.m., and there will be a full
slate of pre-game festivities including
local Babe Ruth and Little League
team introductions on the field. Both
of those teams are preparing to travel
for postseason regional and state tournament play after successful seasons.
A dunk tank and various carnival
games will also be set up at ThorneRider. On the field, six teams will work
through two days of pool play before
the single elimination tournament
begins Saturday, with the championship game to follow Sunday morning at 10.

release LB
Joe Mays
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The
Denver Broncos are saving $3.5 million with the release of linebacker
Joe Mays, who lost his starting job
and then broke his left leg last season.
Not long after signing for $12 million over three years, Mays was suspended a game and docked $50,000
for an illegal hit on Houston’s Matt
Schaub. He then lost his middle linebacker job following a poor performance by the defense in a loss at New
England.
That relegated Mays to special
teams, and he was blocking on a
punt return Oct. 28 when a Saints
player inadvertently leg-whipped
him, fracturing his fibula just above
his left ankle, ending his season.
Although healthy again, Mays was
the odd man out with Nate Irving,
Stewart Bradley and Steven Johnson
vying for the job this summer.

"The truth," Elvis Presley
once said, "is like the sun.
You can shut it out for a
while, but it ain't going away."
And the truth about the sun?
It's a source of health
(reduces blood pressure;
helps the body make vitamin
D) and happiness (it elevates
your mood), but you gotta
shut it out, over and over,
especially when it comes to
babies and toddlers. Early
exposure to sun can set up an
infant for skin cancer woes
later in life.
Rule No. 1: Babies younger
than 6 months should be kept
out of the sun, by avoiding
midday rays and using protective clothing, hats and
umbrellas. It's NOT a good
idea to use sunscreens on
babies' easily permeable
skin; the safety is unknown.
Rule No. 1B: Since you're
avoiding the sun, ask your
pediatrician about vitamin D3 supplements for your baby.
The American Academy of
Pediatrics recommends 400
IU vitamin D a day until
babies can drink 32 ounces of
D-fortified formula daily.
Rule No. 2: Start using sunscreen (remember ears, lips,
toes, fingers) when your child
becomes mobile. Test for sensitivity before doing an allover rub; reapply every 30
minutes. And provide wraparound sunglasses that filter
out UVA and UVB rays.
Rule No. 3: If your toddler
starts to look "a little pink,"
it's PAST time to get out of
the sun. It can take 12 hours
for a burn to show up, and by
then it's too late to avoid the
damage.

this month are discussing
skin cancer prevention.

DEAR ABBY: I have an
awful time meeting men. I'm
not considered beautiful by
any means, so that means
meeting any good guys won't
happen. I use Craigslist a lot
to meet sexual partners. I am
so tired of giving up my body
for a few minutes of pleasure
and then feeling empty on the
inside. Please tell me what to
do. -- WHERE ARE THE
GOOD GUYS?
DEAR WHERE: I'll try, but
first let me tell you where the
good guys AREN'T. They are
not on Craigslist trolling for
sex partners. As my grandfather used to say, "If you're
looking for trout, don't go
fishing in a herring barrel."
Your problem isn't your
looks; it is your extremely
low level of self-esteem. It's
important that you discuss
this with a psychologist who
can help you recognize the
positive qualities you have to
offer, because until you do,
you will only repeat these
empty, depressing encounters. Please don't wait.
DEAR ABBY: I'm a 17-yearold girl who was raised to be
polite. When I meet someone,
I offer a handshake and a
smile and make eye contact.
However, I have found that
because I'm female, adults -especially men -- will go in
for a hug even when I offer
my hand to shake. This is followed by comments like,
"You're too sweet to just
shake hands," or, "Girls don't
shake hands."
I like hugs, but they make
me uncomfortable when
they're from someone I don't
know well, and I find the
comments insulting. How do
I avoid this awkward moment
and respond to the com-
ments? -- TEEN IN NEW
YORK
DEAR TEEN: The next
time someone lunges forward, take a step back and
say, "I prefer to shake hands!"
Say it with a smile and don't
be confrontational, but DO
defend your personal space if
you feel it is being invaded. It
is not impolite to do so.
DEAR ABBY: I'm single,
have no kids and I'm about to
turn 62. I own my own home
and have no debts. After
years of earning a modest
but steady income and watching my expenses, I have saved
enough and I am eligible for
good retirement benefits. So
what's my problem?
Friends and family insist
I'm crazy to leave a job at
which I could work for another five to 10 years. I know
retirement is practical for me
because I have gotten professional financial planning
advice. There are many
things I really want to do -classes, hobbies, volunteer
work and travel before I'm too
old.
My friends need to work to
support their extravagant
lifestyles, lavish vacations,
expensive restaurants, plus
their new cars, clothing and
electronics. I did things my
way and can afford to retire
now, so why can't my friends
keep their mouths shut and
let me enjoy what I have
worked for? -- READY TO
RETIRE
DEAR READY: They may
be jealous, or they may be
genuinely concerned about
you. Not knowing them, I
can't answer for them. I can,
however, suggest this: Before
quitting your job and the
steady, modest income it provides, talk with another
financial planner and get a
second opinion. You'd do that
with a doctor if you had a
serious question about your
physical health, and I'm recommending you do it
because this decision will
affect your financial health
for the rest of your life. If
you wait a few more years,
you won't be over the hill,
and you will have even more
money to enjoy in your
retirement.

Big 12 media days: No starting QB
yet for Sooners; Texas has answer
DALLAS (AP) — Oklahoma coach Bob
Stoops was quick to point out there still is no
final decision on who will be the starting
quarterback for the Sooners this season.
It has been quite a while since that has even
been a question for Stoops. Texas coach Mack
Brown, meanwhile, finally got a break at Big
12 football media days from having to answer
who will be his starter. The Longhorns have
junior David Ash, whose 18 starts are the
most among current league quarterbacks.
“David has grown up. He’s learned a lot,”
Brown said Tuesday. “He is much more confident than at any time.”
Landry Jones is gone after starting 50
games for Oklahoma the past four seasons,
during which the successor to Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford won 39 games and
became the Big 12’s career passing leader
(16,646 yards).
While many people assume that the Oklahoma starter will be Blake Bell, the junior
who has run for 24 career touchdowns in primarily short-yardage situations, Stoops said
sophomore Kendal Thompson and redshirt
freshman Trevor Knight are also competing
for the job.
NFL, players
union continue
HGH talks
Stoops also said the 6-foot-6, 263-pound quarterback known for “Belldozer” packages can
throw the ball too.
“We have a history in my going on 15 years
of having guys in quarterbacks that are really
excellent throwers, and Blake fits that mold,”
said Stoops, whose Sooners last season won a
share of their eighth Big 12 title.
After Colt McCoy led Texas to the BCS national championship game in 2009, Garrett
Gilbert struggled the following season when
the Longhorns had their only losing season
under Brown. So in 2011 the question was
whether Gilbert would be able to keep his job
over then-freshmen Ash or Case McCoy, the
two the coach was choosing between a year
ago. In a game he wasn’t even sure he would
start, Ash capped his sophomore season last
December by helping lead the Longhorns to a
31-27 comeback victory over Oregon State in
the Alamo Bowl. Ash threw for 188 yards and
two touchdowns after halftime, including a
36-yard TD pass with less than 2 1/2 minutes
left after Texas converted fourth-and-1.
“I thought his comeback in the Alamo Bowl
really, really helped him with our team, with
his confidence,” Brown said.
(AP) — The NFL and players
union are meeting Wednesday in
Washington in an attempt to
reach agreement on testing procedures for human growth hormone as early as the upcoming
season.
Both sides already have closed
in on conducting a population
study that has been a key demand
by the players before HGH testing
is implemented.

The labor agreement that ended

the league gain union approval
before testing players for HGH.
The union says it favors testing,
but has reservations about the appeals process. The union also has
concerns about the way discipline will be handed out, and
wants to collectively bargain that
issue. An email obtained by The

Players Association on Monday
indicated that the league and the
NFLPA have jointly hired a doctor to conduct a study on NFL
players to determine an accurate
threshold for a positive HGH test.
The email was sent by the
union to players, in part to explain that the study requires
them to have blood drawn during
their physical when training
camp begins. The email said the
blood samples will only be used
for the study, which would mean
further blood tests for players
once an overall agreement is
reached.
Supplemental HGH is a banned
substance that is hard to detect
and used by athletes for what are
believed to be a variety of benefits, whether real or only perceived — such as increasing
speed and improving vision.

Hints from Heloise
Roasting Garlic
Dear Heloise: Is there an
easy way to ROAST GARLIC without using (or buying) an actual garlic
roaster? -- Jennifer C. in
Florida
There sure is, Jennifer.
Roasted garlic is so delicious! Peel each bulb's skin
layers. Leave the individual
cloves "wrapped." Cut about
1/2 inch off the top of the
bulb, or until you see each
little garlic clove.
Next, line either a muffin
pan or a baking dish with
aluminum foil, and place
the garlic bulbs in it. Coat
each with a dribble of olive
oil.
Cover
the pan
with
aluminum
foil and
bake at
400 F for
about 35
minutes.
The
cloves will get soft, and you
will smell it! Watch out -they may be hot! Remove
each clove by squeezing it
or using a small fork. Eat
the garlic straight out of the
skin, or add it to your fa-
Heloise
vorite recipe! -- Heloise

REFREEZING FOOD
Dear Heloise: If I thaw
food (for example, ground
meat for dinner) and then I
don't make it that night, can
I refreeze it? -- Wanda D.,
via email
Good question, and the
answer is yes, in most
cases. The United States De-
partment of Agriculture
tells us it is safe to refreeze
foods if they were properly
defrosted in the refrigerator. If not properly defrosted, then be sure to cook
it before refreezing.
Because there may be
some water loss from the
defrosting, the meat may
not TASTE the same after
refreezing, then thawing
and cooking. However, it is
STILL safe to eat. -- Heloise
NOTICEABLE CUTS
Dear Heloise: I make a lot
of pasta salads, with many
different foods added to the
pasta so it's not always the
same. Some people like bell
peppers, olives, carrots, artichokes, tomatoes, etc.
My hint is that no matter
what food you put in with
the pasta, make sure to cut
it in large-enough pieces
that anyone can easily remove it. You also can do
this when you make regular
salads. I have many people
thank me for making it easy
for them to pick out the
added foods they don't like
or want. -- Linda G. in Ohio

Dear Heloise: I have a cutting board that I use for
carving meats that has an
indentation all around it to

BIRTHDAY GAL: Actress
Shantel VanSanten was
born in Luverne, Minn., on
this day in 1985. This birthday gal starred as Quinn
James on "One Tree Hill"
from 2009-2012. She's also
appeared on episodes of
"Beauty and the Beast"
"CSI: NY" and "The Glades."
On the big screen, VanSanten's film work includes
"Something Wicked," "Remembrance" and "The Final
Destination."
ARIES (March 21-April
19): Make love, not war.
You're your best when you
engage in activities that involve other people. Steer
clear of new relationships
that must be hidden from
view. Hold off on making
major purchases.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20): Brooding over mistakes
could put you in the frame
of mind to criticize the
wrong person at the wrong
time. Immerse yourself in
hobbies or imaginative pursuits even if you aren't feeling very creative.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20):
You have options. Talk over
problems and mistakes, and
clear up misunderstandings
with a rational approach.
Don't upset anyone's apple
cart by trying to exert control, even if you think you
know best.
CANCER (June 21-July
22): Truth or dare. You may
dare to be honest in order to
uncover the truth. This is a
poor time to make major
purchases or investments.
Be sure to honor commitments and pay outstanding
bills on time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get
a feel for the mood of the
crowd and then play to it.
Some detective work may
be called for to find the
truth as you sift through
conflicting criticism and
praise. Distinguish between
fact and fallacy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):
Keep your money in your
pocket and your opinions to
yourself. During the next
few days, you may be challenged to keep your head
above water. Focus on constructive activities and
physical exercise.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
You don't need to impress
your true friends. Maintain
respectful distance with the
new people you meet, as
they are more likely to be-
the juices still run over and
cause a mess on the
counter. So, I place a baking
sheet with an edge under
the cutting board, and I no

juices run! -- Wendy T. in

FROZEN CHIPS
Dear Heloise: I was given
a bag of potato chips from a
friend who was leaving the
island. After I opened the
bag and ate only a few, I
sealed it and put it into the
freezer. Now, every time I
want chips, I open the bag,
and they are as fresh as the
first time I opened them. -Susan in Marco Island, Fla.
Jeraldine Saunders
come acquaintances than
bosom buddies.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov.
21): Bite your tongue and refuse to utter a discouraging
word. You may invite censure if you voice criticisms.
You're challenged to hold
your ambitions in check
when you participate in
group activities.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Diving in too deep
can backfire. Frank discussions might touch on sensitive subjects or be
perceived as criticism.
Break the ice with teammates by enthusiastically
participating in competitive
games or sports.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19): You can be right and
last, or first and wrong.
There may be a situation
that triggers a tendency to
balk at authority, and you
may be tempted to voice
your opinion in a somewhat
contrary way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
18): Even a small favor
might have strings attached. There may be a misunderstanding about what
constitutes adequate reimbursement. It's wise to be
loud and clear about expectations.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20): Focus all your energy
on fixing past problems
rather than starting new
projects. Take a pleasant
time out for amorous moments with a love interest,
or plan to spend time with
family tonight.
IF JULY 25 IS YOUR
BIRTHDAY: Life is good
and you can enjoy it during
the upcoming four to six
weeks. You're skilled at
making financial decisions,
but may prefer to focus on
improving your health and
getting in touch with your
creative side. You'll have
the best possible help to
succeed in your ambitions
during December and January. That's a good time to
make key decisions, sign
business agreements, or
launch new projects, including a new career path. A
new group of friends or participation in a business organization in February can
lead to lasting friendships
or a romance.

ANALYZE THE AUCTION TO DEFEND
WELL
Philip Seymour Hoffman, an Oscar-winning
actor, said, "It's hard for
anybody who works a lot
and has children. But I
wouldn't trade it for anything." Hopefully all parents agree with that.
This week we are noting that defenders
shouldn't trade the
acronym "trade" for anything. We have reached
A for audition the auction. It is important for
the defenders to use the
information gleaned
from the bidding to help
the defense.
In this example, East
has to make the key
play. Against four
hearts, West leads the
club ace: five, eight,
four. West continues
with the club king: nine,
three, jack. West plays a
Phillip Alder
third club,
East ruffing
and South following suit.
What should
East do now?
South's sequence, opening in
spades, then bidding
hearts twice, showed at
least 5-5 in the majors.
North went with the 5-3
heart fit, hoping that
some spade ruffs in his
hand would help. (Note
that three no-trump
should be defeated.)
East gave a high-low to
show his doubleton club.
And since West was
watching, he was not
distracted by South's
jack falsecard at trick
two.
East now knows that
South started with three
clubs. So, as declarer
must have 5-5-0-3 distribution, trying to cash
the diamond ace cannot
be right. Instead, East
should exit with a
trump, aiming to reduce
the spade ruffs in the
dummy from three to
two.
This defeats the contract. If East doesn't return a trump, declarer
can cash his top spades
and crossruff home.

COWBOYS: Huff on hitting rules
FROM B2
The reasoning behind the added punishment is
obvious. Players need to be protected, and with more
serious incentive not to commit these penalties, concussions and dangerous collisions should decline as
a result.
But even so, officials are fighting an uphill battle.
Football is a sport built on contact, and as two opponents collide in the middle of a turf field, Huff says
some things are inevitable.
“The head-to-head blows, regardless of how many
rules they change or if they eject people, sooner or
later it’s going to happen,” Huff said. “That’s just the
game of football.”
Huff understands that these rules are in place. He
doesn’t want to be a detriment to his team or injure
an opponent, but he’s not going to change his competitive mentality, either.
When a pass comes over the middle and Wyoming’s
free safety approaches, ready for the hit, he’s going
to respond aggressively. A recently added rule
change will do little to slow him down.
“I’m going to play football, regardless of how many
rules there are,” Huff said. “That’s what I know how
to do. Hopefully it doesn’t happen where I have headto-head contact, but I’m not going to be hesitant. I’m
going to come down on the run aggressively, like I’m
supposed to. And I’m going to play the pass aggressively. And if a receiver comes over the middle and
it’s my job to take him down, I’m going to do that.”
Huff isn’t alone in his beliefs.
“I know people are still going to be stuck in their
ways,” UNLV defensive back Tim Hasson said.
“When you’re on the field, you’re really trying to kill
the dude lining up across from you.”
Marlins beat
Rockies again, 4-2
DENVER (AP) — The newcomer helped out his fellow rookie. Christian Yelich went 3 for 4 with two
RBIs in his major league debut and impressive rookie Jose Fernandez tossed seven strong innings, lifting the Miami Marlins to a 4-2 victory over the
Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.
Yelich, one of Miami’s top prospects, became just
the third Marlins player to have three or more hits
in his career debut. His third single of the night,
though, almost earned him a spot on the bench.
After all, his manager, Mike Redmond, didn’t want
Yelich breaking his mark. Redmond was 3 for 3 with
a homer in his big league debut with the Marlins in
1998.
Making his first start since appearing in the AllStar game, Fernandez (6-5) baffled the Rockies all
evening as he pitched out of several jams and limited one of the league’s top-hitting teams to five hits
and two runs. He also struck out eight.
“I went out there and felt great,” Fernandez said.
Giancarlo Stanton provided some insurance with a
solo homer in the eighth and Adeiny Hechavarria
had an RBI double for the Marlins, who have taken
two straight in the four-game series against
Colorado. Jhoulys Chacin (9-5) was hit in the upper
left thigh by a line drive early, but stayed in the
game. He pitched seven solid innings, allowing three
runs and eight hits.

Players deplore doping rather than defend users
NEW YORK (AP) — Protective no
more, baseball players are downright
disgusted these days with doping
Now they are demanding even
stiffer suspensions for those caught
cheating.
“It’s a new generation of athletes
that are standing up,” Travis Tygart,
chief executive of the U.S. AntiDoping Agency, said Tuesday. “The
culture’s been flipped on its head.”
When Ryan Braun accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension
Monday rather than fight Major
League Baseball over evidence he
used performance-enhancing drugs,
fellow players appeared tired of those
who cast shadows on the sport.
“They’re lying to the fans,” Los
Angeles Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson
said. “They’re lying to their teammates. They’re lying to their GMs,
their owners, and they’re going to get
caught.”
Skip Schumaker of the Los Angeles
Dodgers said Braun, the 2011 NL MVP
for the Milwaukee Brewers, let him
down.
“Watching him talk right now
makes me sick,” Schumaker said. “I
have an autographed Braun jersey in
my baseball room that I’ll be taking
down. I don’t want my son identifying
what I’ve worked so hard to get to and
work so hard to have — I don’t want
him comparing Braun to me.”
Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles
Dodgers, who finished second to
Braun in the 2011 MVP vote, said the
Milwaukee slugger should be stripped
of the honor.
“We had conversations, and I considered him a friend,” Kemp said. “I
don’t think anybody likes to be lied to,
and I feel like a lot of people have felt
betrayed.”
Braun tested positive for elevated
testosterone in October 2011 but successfully overturned a 50-game penalty when an arbitrator ruled the outfielder’s urine sample was handled
improperly. Braun loudly proclaimed
his innocence then.
“I thought this whole thing has been
despicable on his part,” Detroit pitcher Max Scherzer said. “When he did
get caught, he never came clean. He
tried to question the ability of the collector when he was caught red-handed. So that’s why the whole Braun situation, there is so much player outrage toward him.”
Arizona pitcher Brad Ziegler
remembered back to the 2011 NL division series, when the Brewers beat the
Diamondbacks 3-2 in a best-of-five
playoff as Braun went 9 for 18 with a
home run and four RBIs.
“Obviously it affected the series,
because that’s right when the positive
test occurred. That’s when it was
highest in his system, and he torched
us that series,” Ziegler said. “We can’t
put it all on that. Looking back on it,
we walked away from that series
knowing we should have won it before
we heard he tested positive. At least
he didn’t get away with it now.”
New York Yankees manager Joe
Girardi said Braun was guilty.
“You don’t accept a deal unless
you’re guilty,” he said.
“It’s another black eye for our game.
I know this game is very resilient, and
there’s been a lot of scandals over the
years, but you get tired of it,” Girardi
added.
He may soon face his own problem
with a star slugger.
More than a dozen players have
been targeted by MLB in its probe of
the closed anti-aging clinic Biogenesis
of America, including three-time AL
MVP Alex Rodriguez of the Yankees.
The next step will be for MLB to
inform the union of additional players it intends to penalize, which could
happen as early as a meeting on
Thursday, a person familiar with the
investigation said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized.
New York expects A-Rod could face a
much harsher penalty than the one
Braun agreed to, a second person
familiar with the case said, also
speaking on condition of anonymity
because no statements were authorized.
The Yankees anticipate Rodriguez
could be accused of using PEDs over
multiple seasons, of recruiting other
athletes for the clinic, of attempting
to obstruct MLB’s investigation, and
of not being truthful with MLB in the
past when he discussed his relationship with Dr. Anthony Galea, who
pleaded guilty two years ago to a U.S.
federal charge of bringing unapproved drugs from Canada into the
United States.
Players have the right to have an
arbitrator decide whether discipline
meets the “just cause” standard in
baseball’s drug agreement. Braun’s
decision not to fight led others to conclude a grievance would have been
futile.
“Obviously the evidence was overwhelming, and it must have been a
mountain of it,” Tygart said.
“I think it speaks volumes for the
generation of athletes today who
don’t want to be forced to make the
same mistakes of the past generation
who felt compelled in order to compete to use these dangerous drugs,” he
said. “I think absolutely that’s a huge
sign that the culture has turned in a
huge direction from where it was in
the late ‘90s and early 2000s.”
In the wake of Braun’s suspension,
a chain of 300 convenience stores in
Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa cut
ties with him. Gary Gonczy, director
of marketing and advertising for
Kwik Trip, Inc., said in an email
Tuesday that the company will no
longer use Braun as a spokesman.
Despite Braun’s ban, Kemp has no
shot at claiming the MVP trophy. The
Baseball Writers’ Association of
America has said repeatedly that it
will not revisit any of its award votes.
“The decision was already made. He
won it,” said Jack O’Connell, the
BBWAA’s secretary-treasurer.
Commissioner Bud Selig said in
March he wants even stiffer drug
penalties, and union head Michael
Weiner said players will consider
toughened rules for 2014.
While Braun’s 65-game penalty is 15
games longer than the current standard for a first offense, Scherzer
thinks it’s insufficient.
“The Brewers are unlikely to make
the playoffs. He misses 2013, and they
are set for 2014,” he said. “For someone that cheated the game as badly as
he did, it just doesn’t seem right.”
Matt Kemp says Braun should lose 2011 MVP award
TORONTO (AP) — Los
Angeles Dodgers outfielder
Matt Kemp, who finished
runner-up to Ryan Braun in
voting for the 2011 National
League Most Valuable
Player award, thinks the
suspended Milwaukee
Brewers slugger should be
stripped of the honor.
Braun finished with 388
points and 20 first-place
votes, to 332 and 10 for
Kemp. Major League
Baseball attempted to suspend Braun following a positive test that October for
elevated testosterone, but
the penalty was overturned
by an arbitrator who ruled
Braun's urine sample was
handled improperly. Braun
agreed Monday to a 65-game
suspension for unspecified
violations of baseball's
drug rules and labor contract. Asked Tuesday
whether the award should
be taken away from Braun,
Kemp responded: "I mean,
yeah, I do," pausing and
adding, "I feel like it should
be, but that's not for me to
decide, you know?"
Kemp said people feel
"betrayed" by Braun.
"I'm disappointed. I talked
to Braun before any of this
happened, we had conversations and I considered him
a friend. I don't think anybody likes to be lied to and I
feel like a lot of people have
felt betrayed. That's not just
me, that's the whole
Brewers organization, a lot
of his teammates. I think a
lot of people feel that way."
