Summer reading program to kick off at both Saline County libraries
By Jennifer Joyner
Olympics of the Mind team, 1986
TODAY: Partly cloudy. High of 79F. TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Low of 61F. SUNDAY: Partly cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and a chance of rain. SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy in the evening, then overcast.
Summer Reading 2013 kicks off at both Saline County Library locations Monday, June 10. The program awards prizes to Saline County residents of all ages for reading and completing other activities. “The main reason we do this is to keep the kids reading over the summer,” said Jill Martin, head of Children’s Services at Saline County Library. “It keeps them motivated and keeps their reading level up. It’s also a fun thing to do in the summer when it’s too hot to do stuff outside.” The kickoff celebration for all ages, themed “Aargh, Pirates!,” is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Boswell Library in Bryant and from 4 to 7 p.m. at Herzfeld Library in Benton. The event will feature pirate-themed games, crafts, and snacks, Martin said. “Dig into Reading” is the theme for the children’s program,
for ages 0-7, and also the ‘tween program, for ages 8-12. At the start of the summer reading program, each participant is issued a bingo card. For the children’s program, participants set their own reading goal, and each day the goal is met, they mark off a day. Once five days are marked off, the participant may bring in his or her bingo card and receive a prize. For ‘tweens, teens, and adults, the bingo cards are filled with varying activities or tasks. The difficulty of the activities depends on which group the participant is in. The card might include activities like, “Read a non-fiction book,” “Draw a picture of a garden gnome,” “Watch a movie,” or “Write a poem,” Martin said. When an activity on the card is complete, he or she may mark off that square. Once the participant has five squares in-a-row filled, he or she may take the bingo card to the library and receive a prize.
“Beneath the Surface” is the theme for ages 13-18. “Groundbreaking Reads” is the theme for ages 18 and up. Preregistration for the program is June 1-8; registration is June 10-29. The program will run June 10-July 20. Regardless of registration date, the library requests participants not begin filling in their bingo cards before June 10. No registration is required for the teen program.In addition to the kickoff party, several events for are planned in conjunction with the reading programs. Events for all ages include: • Magician Scott Davis will perform Wednesday, July 3, at 11 a.m. at the Boswell Library in Bryant and 2 p.m. at the Herzfeld Library in Benton. • “DINOpalooza” will be Tuesday, July 9, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Herzfeld Library in Benton and Wednesday, July 10, from 2 to 4

Prosecutors charge Ark. man in death of infant son
FORT SMITH — Sebastian County prosecutors have charged a man with first-degree murder after his 2-month-old son died. Television station KHBS-KHOG reported that Matthew Schutz was charged. He also faces a firstdegree domestic battery charge and was being held at the Sebastian County Detention Center without bond. No attorney is listed for him in jail records. Schutz told police that he accidentally dropped the infant while placing him on his changing table. Police said Schutz’s wife had left him to watch the baby. After reviewing the autopsy report, prosecutors decided to charge Schutz with first-degree murder. They said it appeared the child had been shaken. Before the baby died, Schutz had been charged with felony battery and had pleaded not guilty. The father was age 27 when he was initially charged.

Gun control group focuses on Ark. legislator with ad
LITTLE ROCK — A gun control group is invoking the 2008 shooting death of Arkansas’ Democratic Party chairman with a new television ad questioning Sen. Mark Pryor’s vote against expanded background checks. Pryor is denouncing the ad as “disgusting” and says it politicizes Bill Gwatney’s death. Mayors Against Illegal Guns on Friday began airing the 30-second spot featuring a former employee of the state Democratic Party. The group, co-founded by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, said the spot would air statewide over the next two weeks. The ad doesn’t mention Gwatney, who was gunned down in his office in 2008, but the former employee featured in the ad said in a statement issued by the group that she worked with Gwatney. Pryor said the measure he voted against wouldn’t have prevented Gwatney’s death.

Ark. highway officials explore toll on I-40
LITTLE ROCK — A consultant retained by Arkansas highway officials to assess the feasibility of making all or parts of Interstate 40 between North Little Rock and West Memphis a tollway to pay to widen the highway is surveying motorists on why they use the route and their willingness to pay a toll. The survey, which can be found at, will be available for two weeks for people who travel the highway, state Highway and Transportation Department officials said Wednesday. Electronic message boards have been stationed along I-40 to spread the word about the survey, including two stationed near the Galloway exit in North Little Rock. Additionally, fliers will be distributed at truck stops and rest stops along the route. The Arkansas Highway Commission authorized the study in March 2012 as part of a due diligence to study the feasibility of all sources of funding. In 2011, voters in the state approved renewal of the existing $575 million bond program to pay for repairs on nearly 300 miles of interstates. In November, they approved a temporary half-percent sales tax that would be in place for 10 years and finance a $1.3 billion bond program targeting construction of four-lane highways or adding capacity to existing four-lane highways. Neither one of those proposals, state highway officials have noted, add capacity to I-40. The Arkansas DemocratGazette reports current federal law allows states to add lanes to existing interstates and charge tolls for the new lanes only, said Alan Meadors, who heads the department’s planning and research division. But the study also will look at adding a lane in each direction and tolling all lanes in the event federal law changes, he said. The 130-mile section of I-40 between North Little Rock and West Memphis is particularly vexing because of the high concentration of big trucks. Truck traffic exceeds 50 percent of the total traffic in several sections, a volume that is “almost unheard of on two-lane interstates,” said Jessie Jones, who is a department engineer and second in command of the agency’s planning and research division. The average daily vehicle count ranges between 30,000 and nearly 40,000, Jones said. “I don’t consider it a very pleasant drive through there,” Meadors said. Jacobs Engineering, an international consulting firm
with an office in Little Rock, is conducting the survey and the study under a $728,000 contract with the department. The federal government is picking up 80 percent of the cost. The study, which is expected to be completed later this year, will look at all aspects of tolling, including whether tolling just one lane will be feasible, how the tolling would work and the toll amount that would attract the most toll users and limit the number of motorists who would use other routes, Jones said. “We’re going to have a complete matrix of strategies,” she said. The study also will have cost estimates for different scenarios and how long it would take for tolls to pay off the cost of widening. “Jacobs has a tough assignment,” Meadors said. In the survey, Jacobs particularly wants to know why people use the route on a particular trip; what day the trip was taken; the primary purpose of the trip; how often the trip is taken; the type of vehicle used; total travel distance; and total travel time. The survey also asks a series of questions focusing on how much the survey participant would pay to save 60 minutes, 45 minutes, 30 minutes or 15 minutes on a trip.

There are several homemade remedies that keep bugs at bay. For example, spiders don’t like citrus. To keep spiders away, mix unsweetened lemon or lime juice and water in a spray bottle. Spray around doors, windows, and spray on and wipe down counter top surfaces to keep them away. Orange, lemon or lime peel scattered around the garden or garage will discourage them from making a web or home in the area. Fleas hate the smell of basil. A few pots with basil plants will help keep them away. A small muslin bag with dried basil leaves hung in strategic areas is also effective, and occasionally rubbing the bag renews the effective odor. Mosquitoes are repelled by catnip. Catnip oil is as effective as DEET for about two hours. Grow a few plants around the garden or patio or in hanging baskets on the porch. Deer do not like the smell of Irish Spring soap. A few slivers located around their favorite food will probably do the trick. Tie larger pieces to stakes in the corn or other places that they like.

FDA warns of illness tied to meds from Tenn. pharmacy
Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Government health officials are investigating cases involving patients who suffered complications after being injected with potentially contaminated medications made by a Tennessee specialty pharmacy. The Food and Drug Administration said Friday the problems involve seven patients who received steroid injections from Main Street Family Pharmacy, a compounding pharmacy in
Newbern, Tenn. Tennessee health officials said the pharmacy has agreed to recall all of its sterile products, which are generally injectable prescription drugs. Officials from the FDA and the Tennessee Department of Health have been inspecting the Newbern pharmacy since Wednesday. “The pharmacy staff and management have been cooperative,” state regulators said in a news release. An employee reached
at Main Street Family Pharmacy on Friday afternoon could not immediately provide comment. The injections contain methylprednisolone acetate, the same drug at the center of last year’s deadly outbreak of fungal meningitis. More than 55 people have died and over 740 others have been sickened after receiving contaminated injections from a Massachusetts compounding pharmacy. The steroids are typically used to treat pain.

Spotting bubbles is harder than you think
t’s that time again. A growing group of pessimists are asking whether the stock market is back to bubble territory. Some are even comparing it to 1999. They say stocks are being inflated by the Fed. That they’re disconnected from the reality of a weak economy. That they’re overvalued and bound to fall. Could they be right? Of course. They make a forceful case with charts and ratios and historical data. But they have been making the same argument for four years now, and they have been wrong all the way. Clearly, the world is more complicated than the pessimists assume. Consider that the S&P 500 has risen as much as 60 percent since these quotes went to press: “The S&P 500 is about 40 percent overvalued” --, Oct. Morgan 26, 2009 Housel “US Stocks Surge Back Toward Bubble Territory” -- BusinessInsider. com, Jan. 11, 2010 “On a valuation basis, the S&P 500 remains about 40 percent above historical norms on the basis of normalized earnings.” --, July 13, 2010 “Is The Stock Market Overvalued? Almost Every Important Measure Says Yes” --, Nov. 1, 2010 “The market is as overvalued now as it was undervalued (in early 2009),” said David A. Rosenberg, chief economist and strategist for Gluskin Sheff, an investment firm.” --, March 28, 2010 “Andrew Smithers, an excellent economist based in London, is telling us that we’re way too optimistic, that fair value for the S&P 500 is actually in the 700-750 range. Smithers, therefore, thinks the stock market is about 50 percent overvalued.” --, June 18, 2010 Sure, you might say these calls were just early. But let me put forth a truism in finance: When an average business cycle lasts five years, there is no such thing as four years ahead of the game. You are just wrong. Some of the bubble arguments haven’t changed in the face of a 50-percent rally. Take the cyclically adjusted price/earnings ratio, or CAPE. In 2010, the S&P 500, which traded near the 1,000 level, had a CAPE valuation of around 22, which many pointed out was about 40 percent above historic norms. Today, trading above 1,600, the S&P 500 has a CAPE of about ... 23. Even as the market exploded higher, the degree to which the market is supposedly overvalued hasn’t changed that much, since companies have been busy investing in their operations and boosting earnings. That’s why being four years early means being four years wrong. My point here isn’t to relish in other people’s bad predictions -- although I never tire of doing so. And let’s state loud and clear: The higher the market goes today, But there are several lessons we can learn from four years of failed bubble predictions. 1. Never rely on single-variable analysis. Wall Street blew up in 2008 after relying on mindblowingly complex forecasting models that attempted to measure risk out to the fifth decimal point. Most investors now realize how flawed these complicated models were. But then they turn around and do the opposite, dramatically oversimplifying by trying to explain the global economy with a single metric. That’s just as crazy. 2. Realize that some analysts are stubborn to a fault. Some people predicted the financial crisis in 2008. And good for them. But many of them also predicted a financial crisis in 2007, 2006, 2005, 1997, 1995, 1992, 1985, 1970 and so on. They are perma-bears who get ignored during booms and lionized during busts, even though their arguments rarely change. It’s the classic broken-clock-is-right-twice-a-day syndrome. 3. Missing a rally can be more devastating than getting caught in a crash. The vast majority of entrepreneurs, business leaders, policymakers, teachers and consumers try hard to make the world a better, more productive place. In aggregate, they succeed the vast majority of the time. That’s why there’s a strong upward bias to equity markets over time. It’s also why missing a market rally can be a bigger risk to your finances than getting caught up in a crash. Getting caught in a crash usually means having to wait a few years at most -- which everyone invested in stocks should be prepared to do. But missing a rally can be a permanently lost opportunity. I can say with high confidence that over the next 20 years, we will have several severe market pullbacks, yet stocks will trade substantially higher than they do now. Why focus on the former and ignore the latter? Morgan Housel has no position in any stocks mentioned.

early 20 years after a Hasidic Jewish boy riding across the Brooklyn Bridge was killed by a Muslim fighting jihad, a British soldier was hacked to death and reportedly beheaded on the streets of London by Muslims fighting jihad. Thanks to the happenstance of a passer-by with a video recorder, the world heard almost immediately from one of the two London suspects, Michael Adebolajo. His hands red with blood, Adebolajo confessed to the murder he had just committed in Koranically correct terms of revenge, presumably for Britain’s efforts against jihad in Iraq and Afghanistan. We also know that cries of “Allahu Akbar” (“Allah is great”) punctuated the knifing and meat-cleavering of the victim. Diana But if “Allahu West Akbar” is the historic cry of Muslims engaged in jihad, it is also the contemporary trigger for Western denial that jihad exists. “We will defeat violent extremism by standing together,” British Prime Minister David Cameron stated, gravely opaque. How? “Above all by challenging the poisonous narrative of extremism on which this violence feeds,” he said, definitely not referring to the verses of the Koran that inspire jihad. Islam, the prime minister was saying, has nothing to do with this murder in the streets. Furthermore, global jihad is not underway, and no caliphate in which Jews and Christians will defer to Islamic law as “dhimmi” is on the horizon. Flash back almost two decades to March 1994, one year after the first attack on the World Trade Center, and shortly after an Israeli doctor, Baruch Goldstein, massacred 29 Muslims in a mosque in Hebron. Goldstein’s act was uniformly denounced by Israeli and Jewish authorities, but it nonetheless engendered calls for jihad from Islamic authorities around the world. It was at this point in New York City that 16-year-old Ari Halberstam was shot and killed on the Brooklyn Bridge by Rashid Baz, a “Middle East” man or “Arab” -- the vernacular of the day for Muslim. Nonetheless, in an earlier iteration of jihad-denial, discussion of the Brooklyn Bridge case actually focused on “road rage.” What we were looking at, of course, was an act of jihad -- among the first of many thousands leading up to the recent London attack. This became clear during Baz’s murder trial. According to testimony presented by the defense, Baz thought of himself as “an Arab soldier crusader” -- what we now know as a “mujahid,” or jihadist. Such was the testimony of Baz’s own psychiatrist, Dr. Douglas Anderson. Before Baz, a Palestinian Arab from Lebanon, went on his Brooklyn Bridge jihad, Anderson testified that Baz visited a local Palestinian friend, Musaffaq Askar, who, according to The New York Times, told Baz that he personally was eager to “make jihad” after the Goldstein attack. Together, the two men went to the Islamic Society of Bay Ridge
From the Brooklyn Bridge to London N
(which would become notorious for its “extremism,” but was celebrated in a three-part series by The New York Times). There, according to Anderson’s testimony, the imam railed against Jews, calling them racists and fascists like the Nazis. Meanwhile, terror groups such as Hamas urged revenge. Within days, heavily armed and ready, Baz would pursue and open fire on the van carrying the Hasidic boys -- as identifiable as “infidels” by their religious garb as the British soldier was this week in an army charity t-shirt. Baz, however, would be convicted only of second-degree murder -- not terrorism. Ari’s family would spearhead a successful effort to see the murder case re-classified in 2000 as terrorism. Equally important, however, this terror attack was also jihad. Indeed, 10 days after the 1994 van attack in New York, Hamas made Baz the child-killer a “mujahid” (holy warrior) and “Ibn Islam” (son of Islam) -- a role model for others. It still is jihad. Last week in New York, 16 Palestinians (14 of them in the U.S. illegally) were charged in a multi-million-dollar cigarette smuggling case, raising the possibility that authorities may have cracked a new jihad financing ring. As New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly put it, “Similar schemes have been used in the past to help fund terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah.” Hamas, a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Iran’s Hezbollah (“Party of Allah”) are indeed terrorist organizations, but they are also avowedly jihadist. Kelly went on to note that several of the men were “on our radar with links to known terrorists.” One is Rashid Baz’s confidante Musaffaq Askar! According to Ari’s mother, Devorah Halberstam, Askar should have been investigated long ago in a wider, deeper terrorism investigation that never took place. Also nabbed in the cigarette ring is Mohannad Seif, who, the New York Daily News reports, used to room with the aide of longtime Hamas leader Moussa Abu Marzouk. There is also Youssef Odeh, whose baby formula business (please) included a $10,000 investment from Omar Abdel Rahman, better known to Americans as the “blind sheik” behind the first World Trade Center attack. That investment, as NYPD Commissioner Kelly pointed out, was arranged by Rahman’s spokesman at the time, Ahmed Sattar. The Daily News reported that Kelly called Sattar a “close friend” of Musaffaq Askar. Nineteen years later, we seem to be looking anew at the jihad terror cell that killed Ari Halberstam. No wonder Kelly last week declared the Halberstam case “open.” There is much more to investigate -- but this time with our eyes open to jihad, please. Ari, the people of New York, London and beyond deserve that much.

nvestors have grown nervous that the Federal Reserve will scale back its efforts to boost the U.S. economy sooner than many expected. Yet almost lost in the anxiety that gripped the stock market this week is that whenever the Fed slows its drive to keep interest rates low, it will be cause for celebration: It would mean policymakers think the economy is strong enough to accelerate with less help from the Fed. “We should be wishing for higher interest rates,” says Kevin Logan, HSBC’s chief U.S. economist. “It would be a sign of a more healthy econo- Paul my.” Wiseman Over the past five years, the Fed has acted aggressively to try to boost the economy. Among other steps, it cut short-term interest rates to record lows and said it planned to keep them there at least until unemployment falls to 6.5 percent (from 7.5 percent in April). And in September it began a third round of bond purchases — $85 billion a month. The goal has been to drive down long-term loan rates and encourage more borrowing, spending and hiring. The lower rates have fueled a surge in stock prices: The Dow Jones industrial average has jumped about 17 percent this year and set a record high. Even so, investors have grown jittery about the Fed’s likely timetable for starting to curtail its bond purchases. Speculation intensified Wednesday after the Fed released a summary of the April 30-May 1 meeting of its policy committee. The minutes said “a number of participants” were open to reducing the Fed’s bond purchases as soon as its next meeting June 18-19 — if the economy is showing strong and sustained growth. The news caused stocks to gyrate Wednesday, and the Dow finished down 80 points. On Thursday, investors appeared calmer, but stocks still closed down slightly. The Fed faces a perilous decision: If it pulls back its stimulus too soon, the U.S. economic recovery could sputter. If it waits too long, super-low rates could ignite inflation. Or they could swell speculative asset bubbles as investors pursue riskier investments with potentially richer returns than low-yielding bonds. The Fed knows the timing is tricky. It ended its second round of bond purchases in June 2011 only to see economic growth remain weak and unemployment stay at levels more consistent with a recession than a healthy recovery. In part, that’s why the Fed is expected to move cautiously. Rather than end the bond-buying program altogether, it’s likely to reduce its purchases gradually — and perhaps only temporarily. That way, it can wait to see what happens to the economy before deciding whether to keep trimming its purchases. Former Fed economist David Wyss, now a professor at Brown University, predicts that the Fed will trim its monthly bond purchases to $50 billion from $85 billion as early as this fall and gradually reduce the pace to zero during 2014. That the Fed is even considering a pullback in its bond-buying program is a testament to how far the economy has come from the depths of the Great Recession — though it remains far from full health. Employers have added an average of 208,000 jobs a month since November, up from 138,000 during the previous six months. The unemployment rate has reached a four-year low of 7.5 percent from 8.2 percent in July and a peak of 10 percent during 2009. On Thursday, the Labor Department said the number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits fell 23,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 340,000, a level consistent with solid job growth. The housing market, which had been a drag on growth from 2006 through 2011, is recovering steadily. Sales of new homes sales rose in April, nearly matching the fastest pace in five years and driving the median price to a record $271,600, the Commerce Department said Thursday. Still, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke on Wednesday told a congressional committee the economy continues to need help. Among other concerns, he and some other Fed policymakers worry that tax increases and spending cuts that kicked in this year are slowing the economy. All of which means the Fed is unlikely to reverse its easy-money policies without evidence that the economy is sturdy enough to withstand the government cutbacks and keep growing at a healthy pace. Once it does, stocks may fall, at least temporarily. In the long run, though, a more robust economy would generate higher profits for U.S. corporations. And that, in turn, would likely fuel higher stock prices. Paul Wiseman is an economics writer for The Associated Press.

Lawson and Higgs posted their best jumps of the day in round three, while Batchelor’s mark came on his second pass down the runway. All three Razorbacks were able to pass on their final three rounds of jumps. Batchelor is also scheduled to compete Saturday in the triple jump. “I just wanted to get that qualifying mark in as few jumps as possible and keep my knee healthy for the sprint relay,” Lawson said. “It felt great to get that 26-foot jump on my third jump. I didn’t even know what place I was in going into the third jump. I just put it out there and it felt great to top my PR.” Arkansas’ next collection of NCAA qualifiers came in

No. 4 Razorbacks collect six NCAA qualifiers
Special to the Courier
AUSTIN, Texas – The No. 4 University of Arkansas men’s track and field team collected six national qualifiers on day one of the 2013 NCAA West Preliminary in Austin, Texas. The Razorbacks will be represented in Eugene by Solomon Haile at 10,000 meters, Anthony May II and Dwayne Golbek in the high jump and Jarrion Lawson, Tarik Batchelor and Raymond Higgs in the long jump. The team also advanced eight runners into the quarterfinal round of the preliminary competition. The Razorbacks opened their week in Austin with three national qualifying performances in the long jump from Lawson, Batchelor and Higgs. Lawson was the top overall qualifier with a personal-best jump of 7.93m/260.25 on his third attempt
the high jump where May tied for the overall lead during the prelim and Golbek had to participate in a jump off to claim his spot. May finished the day with a best clearance of 2.16m/7-1. Golbek was part of a threeman jump off for the final two spots and claimed his spot with a final clearance of 2.12m/6-11.5. This will mark Golbek’s first appearance at the national meet. In the final event of the day, Haile ran to a runner-up finish at 10,000 meters with a time of 29:55.59. Running toward the back of the pack during the early stages of the race, the Razorback junior made up ground and put on a final kick that put him in position to advance to the NCAA Championships. With Thursday’s performance, Haile secured his first career appearance at the outdoor national meet. Caleb Cross earned a spot
in the quarterfinal round of the 400-meter hurdles with her showing Friday. The Razorback senior finished second in heat five and was 10th overall with his time of 51.33, good for an automatic berth into the next round. The quarterfinal heats of the hurdle event will be contested Friday at 7:45 p.m. Cross won his second SEC title in the event two weeks ago in Columbia, Mo. Arkansas added another two more quarterfinalists behind the efforts of Akheem Gauntlett and Anton Kokorin in the first round of the 400 meters. Gaunlett was the top overall performer with his time of 46.14 to win heat five. Running in the same heat, Kokorin finished fifth with an at-large time of 47.03 that ended up being the final bubble mark to advance. Friday’s quarterfinal will be run at 6:15 p.m.
The Razorback men were 5 for 5 in the first round of the 800 meters with all five entries—Leoman Momoh, Patrick Rono, Anthony Lieghio, Tomas Squella and Ryan Thomas—advancing to Friday’s quarterfinal heats. Momoh won his heat with a time of 1:49.94 which made him the fifth overall qualifier. Rono and Lieghio turned in top-10 marks at 1:48.36 and 1:49.38, respectively. Rono’s time was a personal best and a season best by more than a second. Friday’s quarterfinal will be run at 7:15 p.m. In addition to quarterfinal heats Friday, the second day of competition at the NCAA West Preliminary will feature qualifying action in the 3,000-meter steeplechase for Stanley Kebenei and David Flynn. The 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships will be held June 5-8 at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

Tournament of champions
The 31st Annual Tournament of Champions continues today and will go through Sunday, May 26. This years TOC, which has been the largest tournament in Arkansas the past five years, is the largest its ever been with over 170 youth teams all to play in Saline County. The TOC is expected to raise over $50,000 for local charities and organizations.
FAYETTEVILLE -  Arkansas’ 2-0 start to the SEC Tournament  going into today’s semifinal in Hoover, Ala.,  has left the opposing coaches as relieved as they were defeated. After   Major League draft eligible Arkansas  junior right-hander Barrett Astin pitched eight 5-hit innings allowing just a run in the Razorbacks’ eventual 2-1 10-inning victory Wednesday over the Ole Miss Rebels, Ole Miss Coach Mike Bianco wished Astin a hasty signing following June’s draft. “We’ve seen him now for so long,” Bianco was quoted after Wednesday’s game. “We’ll be happy when he leaves.” Ditto LSU Coach Paul Mainieri on Thursday regarding Arkansas drafteligible junior right-hander Ryne Stanek after Stanek pitched  a 6-hitter through
eight and handed off a 4-1 lead for draft-eligible junior closer Colby Suggs to save with a 1-2-3 ninth. “He’s about ready for the big leagues,” Mainieri said in Thursday’s postgame. The pitcher’s duel between Stanek, now 9-2, and 1.40 earned run average, and LSU 10-0 Aaron Nola, relieved to start the eighth of a 1-1 duel with Arkansas then attacking  the LSU bullpen, lived up to its billing. “The stage was set for a really good game,” Mainieri said. “I don’t think anyone was disappointed in the pitcher’s duel. I thought Aaron pitched his heart out and you have got to tip your hat to Stanek. He’s really good.  He was the story of the game.” Arkansas Coach Dave Van Horn also said Stanek vs. Nola lived up to its billing from the start. “I thought the starting

The Razorback senior entered the meet as the No. 14 seed in the event after her runner-up finish two weeks ago at the SEC Championships in Columbia, Mo. This will be the second NCAA appearance for Tesfaye, who previously qualified in 2010 when she was enrolled at Iowa State. “I have run here before so I had confidence that I could handle the heat,” Tesfaye said of running at Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin. “I was ranked 14th so I knew I just had to beat a couple of people and I knew I was strong. The beginning of the race was
too slow and it wasn’t helping me at all. I knew I had to run my own comfortable pace. That’s why I went into the lead early. It was the best way for me to finish strong.” In the team’s first event of the day, Sparkle McKnight and Flowers advanced to the quarterfinal round of the 400meter hurdles with their first-round efforts. The Razorback duo finished 1-2 in heat two with McKnight taking the tape in 57.75, while Flowers followed with a personal-best time of 58.51. At the end of six heats, the two had the fourth- and ninth-fastest times overall. The quarterfinal round was run on
Friday. The Razorbacks added two more quarterfinalists with Stephanie Brown and Keri Wood in the 1,500 meters. Brown earned an automatic spot in the next round with her win in heat four, crossing the finish line in 4:22.22. She was the third overall qualifier, while Wood grabbed the final at-large spot with her time of 4:25.26. She finished seventh in heat one but her time was only surpassed by two other at-large performers. Saturday’s quarterfinal will be run at 6:30 p.m. George and Williams each won their respective heats at 400 meters to qualify for Friday’s quarterfinal round. Running in
heat two, George posted an NCAA-leading time of 51.27 to secure her spot in the next round. The time is also a season best for the Razorback senior and the fourth fastest in school history. Williams won heat five in a personal-best time of 53.21 to advance. The quarterfinal was ran on Friday. Arkansas’ final quarterfinalist on day one of the preliminary meet was Martine Borge who clinched a spot in the next round with a third-place finish in heat one of the 800 meters. She posted a time of 2:08.19, good for 17th place overall in the event’s first round. Friday’s quarterfinal will be run at 7 p.m.

Car stolen from Benton Truck Sales
Benton Truck Sales on Interstate 30 on May 16 reported stolen to Benton police a 2008 blue Pontiac G6. Benton Truck Sales representative Paul Meier told police the theft likely occurred sometime overnight on May 15. Meier told police the garage door top bolt lock had been broken, according to a police report of the incident. Meier told police a customer was supposed to pick up the vehicle on May 16 and had paid $400 to hold it. A white Mongoose bicycle was found in the grass behind the business, but it is unknown if this is related, according to the police report. Officer Drew Brown investigated.

ish and diocesan levels. While Pope Benedict XVI speaks with the precision of an academic comfortable in European classrooms, Pope Francis has spent much of his life preaching in slums. “When you look at him in the pulpit you just have to say, ‘This is a preacher in a parish.’ He’s going up there with notes, not a formal five-page text” that the Vatican press officers distributed in advance, said Barron in a telephone interview. “Every now and then you catch him looking up with a kind of twinkle in his eyes and you can tell he’s enjoying what he’s doing, what he’s saying.” Recently, the conservative journal First Things collected a few “vivid images” drawn from early sermons and remarks by the Jesuit pope. For example, the pope has warned Catholics not to focus on temporary things and, thus, become “teenagers for life.” On another occasion, he said some Catholics complain so often they could become “Mr. or Mrs. Whiner” or end up with faces resembling “pickled peppers.” Other sound bites in this list included: -- On March 14, Francis used a bit of policy wonk lingo: “We can walk as much as we want, we can build many things, but if we do not profess Jesus Christ, things go wrong. We may become a charitable NGO, but not the church, the bride of the Lord.” -- It’s crucial for Catholics to live their faith, not just talk about it privately, the pope said in mid-April: “When we do

The earthy words of Pope Francis
There is nothing unusual about a Catholic leader urging priests to draw closer to their flocks, to focus on day-to-day issues that bridge the gap between pulpit and pew. Still, it caught Vatican insiders off-guard when Pope Francis, a TERRY week after his installaMATTINGLY tion Mass, ON used a somewhat RELIGION pungent image when discussing this problem. “This is precisely the reason for the dissatisfaction of some, who end up sad -- sad priests -- in some sense becoming collectors of antiques or novelties, instead of being shepherds living with the smell of the sheep,” he said. “This I ask you: Be shepherds, with the ‘odor of the sheep,’ make it real, as shepherds among your flock, fishers of men.” At this point, “it’s safe to say everyone in the Catholic world knows that line, if they’re paying attention at all,” said Father Robert Barron, president of Mundelein Seminary at the University of St. Mary of the Lake near Chicago. He is also known for his work as founder of the Word on Fire media ministry and as an NBC News analyst. It’s easy, when talking about this pope’s back-tobasics style, to stress his life in Argentina, growing up in the home of immigrants from northern Italy. But when considering his preaching, said Barron, the key is to remember his experience at the par-

Associated Press
double honor are the nonCatholic witnesses who attest to Father Kapaun’s heroism: the Protestants, Jews and Muslims who either served with the military chaplain in the thick of battle or endured with him the unbelievably brutal conditions of a prisoner of war camp. As journalists Roy Wenzl and Travis Heying discovered, all of these Korean War veterans, no matter their religion, agree that Father Kapaun did more to save lives and maintain morale than any other man they know. Then there are the alleged miracles-the recent healings attributed to Father Kapaun’s intercession that defy scientific explanation. Under investigation by the Vatican as a necessary step in the process of canonization, these cures witnessed by non-Catholic doctors are also covered in this book. In tracking down the story of Father Kapaun for the Wichita Eagle, Wenzl and Heying uncovered a paradox. Kapaun’s ordinary background as the son of Czech immigrant farmers in Kansas sowed the seeds of his greatness. His faith, generosity and grit began with his family’s humility, thrift and hard work. --
Pope canonizes saints
Pope Francis has given the Catholic church more than 800 new saints in his first canonization ceremony, the Associated Press reports. Francis canonized Colombia’s first saint, Laura of St. Catherine of Siena Montoya y Upegui, also known as Mother Laura Montoya. Montoya spent her life working as a teacher and spiritual guide to Colombia’s indigenous peoples. Francis also canonized Maria Guadalupe Garcia Zavala, also known as Mother Lupita, of Mexico. Lupita devoted her life to helping the sick and helped Catholics avoid persecution during a government crackdown on the the religion in the 1920s. Francis also canonized all of the “martyrs of Otranto;” the 813 Catholics killed in
1480 for refusing to convert to Islam when Turkish soldiers captured the southeastern Puglia region of Italy. Antonio Pezzulla, the leader of the group refusing to convert, was the first to be beheaded. All the new saints were approved for canonization by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI before he withdrew from his position.

this the church becomes a mother church that bears children. ... But when we don’t do it, the church becomes not a mother but a babysitter church, which takes care of the child to put him to sleep.” -- While some insist on talking about faith in vague terms, Francis reminded an April 18 audience: “When we talk to God we speak with persons who are concrete and tangible, not some misty, diffused godlike ‘god-spray,’ that’s a little bit everywhere but who knows what it is.” -- Stressing the importance of Easter, he noted: “Efforts have often been made to blur faith in the Resurrection of Jesus and doubts have crept in, even among believers. It is a little like that ‘rosewater’ faith, as we say; it is not a strong faith. And this is due to superficiality and sometimes to indifference,
The Word
Canonization: The process in the Roman Catholic Church by which an individual is declared a saint. The Catholic Church says that all those in heaven are saints. Canonization is a solemn affirmation by the church to the faithful that a particular person is in heaven and that that person’s life and virtues are especially worthy of emulation and veneration. Canonization is also practiced by the Eastern Orthodox Church. --
Good Book?
“The Miracle of Father Kapaun: Priest, Soldier, and Korean War Hero” by Roy Wenzl and Travis Heying Emil Kapaun-priest, soldier and Korean War hero-is a rare man. He has been awarded the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, and is also being considered by the Vatican for canonization as a saint. As remarkable as this
busy as we are with a thousand things considered more important than faith, or because we have a view of life that is solely horizontal.” What runs through these words is the new pope’s desire to awaken in his listeners a “religious sense,” a “religious sensibility” that insists that there is more to life in the real world than mere materialism, said Barron. Pope Francis knows that “if you want people to act, you have to touch them at the level of the real, the earthy and the practical,” he said. “As a pastor, he has used this language before. Now he is using these kinds of images again -- from the throne of St. Peter.” Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the GetReligion. org project to study religion and the news.

Arkansas Scholars Program ends school year on a high note
By Brent Davis
Students participating tin the Arkansas Scholars Program in Benton recently held an end-of-the-schoolyear assembly as a means to reward them for their hard work during the 2012 -2013 term. Beginning in the eighth grade, students are asked to meet a set of criteria that will prepare them for both the workplace and additional education after high school. The program, centered on academic achievement for a broad range of students, requires students to meet the following criteria in order to be recognized as Arkansas Scholars: — Earn semester grades of “C” or above in all courses. — Achieve a 95 percent or better attendance record
(average over four years). — Complete the recommended courses to graduate from high school and to prepare for post secondary education, including: English. 4 units (I, II, III, and IV), Science. 3 units (from biology, chemistry, physics, and physical science, lab based), Mathematics. 4 units (algebra I, geometry, algebra II and an advanced math course), social studies. 3 units (to include world history, U.S. history, civics/ government). — Complete the balance of state mandated high school graduation requirements. — Finish high school in eight consecutive semesters. The program,sponsored by Everett Buick GMC and the Benton Area Chamber of Commerce, provides recognition and incentives every
year the student maintains eligibility. In addition, some college scholarships are available to Arkansas Scholars upon graduation. The Benton High School graduating class of 2013 includes 118 Arkansas scholars. This class is the first group of students to complete the Arkansas Scholars Program in Benton. While the Arkansas Scholars program begins with the presentation to eighth graders, the largest responsibility is keeping the students and the community aware and moving through the program. As students progress from the 9th through the 12th grade, a variety of activities and motivational efforts is needed to remind students to stay with the Scholars program.
Ninth-grade students enjoy ice cream sandwiches outside Benton Junior High. From left are Carlie Kriticka, Macey Feimster, Sydney Overbey, Abby Robinson and Morgan Neathery.
Tenth-grade participants receive keychains during the program assembly at the Benton High School cafeteria. From left are Kara Amoto, Allison Hass, Tara Taylor, Nakiya Baxter, Katelynn Kraft and Kelsey Schmidt.

MAY 25, 2013 You are likely to make some of your greatest gains just when it looks like everything is grinding to an abrupt halt. It will prove that you should never give up. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Unusual benefits are likely to be derived from a rare partnership arrangement. Each of you is likely to have what the other wants. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Discard your present procedures if they haven’t been working and implement a fresh approach. Be resourceful, and obstacles will melt away. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A spur-of-the-moment invitation could lead to a rather interesting encounter. At least consider the offer, because chances are it’ll never happen again. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Some unexpected changes could enable you to finalize a situation that has been difficult to resolve. If an opening should occur, move swiftly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -You’ll quickly realize that your mind is working better than your muscles at present. Stick to matters that require brain, not brawn. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Your financial trends are on the upswing. Chances are you find some good ways to both make and save money. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You should quickly take advantage of a pleasant social surprise. This particular opportunity presents itself far too infrequently to be ignored. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- Some of your best ideas are likely to come when you are off by yourself, free from all distractions. If you are in need of some fresh thoughts, try solitude. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Conditions in general look to be quite hopeful. Maintain an optimistic outlook at all times, even when it appears you are stuck in a rut. Things could change quickly. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don’t hesitate to use your ingenuity and resourcefulness
to advance your financial and career situations. Things are breaking in your favor. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have your own unique way of handling certain things. Use it today, regardless of how strange or unusual it may seem to others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There is a good chance you could become involved in an unorthodox commercial matter. Its unusual nature will yield a hefty profit.

Here’s How It Works:
Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
