ADRIFT IN DEBRIS вЂ�THATвЂ™S ALL THATвЂ™S LEFTвЂ™ Extent of damage shakes Joplin By Jess Rollins [email protected] As hundreds scoured gouged-out homes looking for photos and clothes, Tammy Niederhelman looked desperately for Zach. HeвЂ™s her 12-year-old son. вЂњIs he out there somewhere hurt and cold? Is he in the hospital all alone? Is he in the makeshift morgue?вЂќ She wept. вЂњWe want our baby to come back home.вЂќ Niederhelman and her husband, Tony, spent Monday searching for the blue-eyed boy with dirty blond hair. вЂњThis really is chaos,вЂќ Niederhelman said. вЂњYou canвЂ™t find anything out.вЂќ Several blocks away, others worked to dig out pieces of their lives buried among brick and beams. вЂњThatвЂ™s all thatвЂ™s left,вЂќ Roger Dedick said as he pointed to a section of foundation. Dedick lived at 2830 18th St. for 17 years before he and his wife rushed to the basement Sunday night. He said his ears popped as the tornado blew the windows out of the garage and he used a metal вЂњtankerвЂ™sвЂќ bar to pry his way out of the rubble.

It was the nationвЂ™s deadliest single twister in nearly 60 years and the second major tornado disaster in less than a month. Authorities feared the toll could rise as the full scope of destruction comes into view: house after house reduced to rubble, cars crushed like soda cans, shaken residents roaming streets in search of missing family members. The danger was by no means over. A Riverside police officer was recovering from a near-lightning strike suffered while he was helping during the tornado aftermath. The unidentified officer was being treated at a hospital for burns and other injuries after the strike around 5 p.m. Monday. Riverside police spokesman Sgt. Brent Holland said the officer had just driven a fire commander back to a command post and was standing next to an all-terrain vehicle when the lightning struck near him. Fires from gas leaks burned across town, and more violent weather loomed, including the threat of hail, high winds and even more tornadoes. At daybreak, the cityвЂ™s south side was a barren, smoky wasteland. вЂњIвЂ™ve never seen such devastation вЂ” just block upon block upon block of See SURVIVORS, Page 4A TORNADO COVERAGE В» Organized religion: Find out what churches here are doing to help . 3A В» Be prepared: Forecasters warn of more twisters, possible flooding. 8A В» Lines down: Storms bring phone communication to a standstill. 5A В» Helping out: Businesses use their resources to lend a hand in Joplin. 8A Weather Map on page 4C TODAY 81В° HUMID; STORMS LIKELY TONIGHT 56В° вЂў TOMORROW 79В° 2A Tuesday, May 24, 2011 JOPLIN TORNADO NEWS-LEADER вЂў News-Leader.com Chaos, bravery seen at hospital By Kurt Voigt THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JOPLIN вЂ” Jonathan Elliott had heard the tornado sirens blaring outside St. JohnвЂ™s Regional Medical Center for about a half-hour when things suddenly took a terrifying turn. The building started shaking, lights began to flicker and Elliott, 16, could feel the wind coming up beneath the floor in his grandfatherвЂ™s seventh-floor hospital room. It was time to make a move, he decided, and thatвЂ™s what Elliott and his grandmother did, making a dash for the relative safety of an inside stairwell. Up to that moment, вЂњwe had no idea it was going to blow,вЂќ Elliott said. The tornado that smashed Joplin on Sunday also ravaged one of the townвЂ™s major hospitals just when it was needed the most, killing at least six people in the building, blowing out windows and sucking up Xrays and medical records and dumping them two counties away. After the twister, the entire nine-story, 367-bed hospital was evacuated for fear of structural damage. Walls were knocked 10 feet out of place and rooms were strewn with broken glass, concrete, ceiling tiles and other debris. Some patients were taken out in wheelchairs, while others unable to make their way out on their own after the elevators were disabled were slid down the stairs on mattresses. Doctors and nurses set up a triage center in the parking lot amid crushed cars and a smashed helicopter, but once storm victims were evaluated, they had to CHARLIE RIEDEL / THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The damaged St. JohnвЂ™s Regional Medical Center is seen in the distance through tornado debris in Joplin. be sent to other hospitals for treatment. On the morning after the storm, parts of the hospital вЂ” one of JoplinвЂ™s tallest buildings вЂ” appeared bombed out. In the frightening minutes before the twister struck, the hospital declared a вЂњCondition Gray,вЂќ and patients, relatives and staff members were told to leave their rooms and go into stairwells and other protected interior parts of the building. A total of 183 patients were in the building, authorities said. Despite what hospital officials said was at least 10 minutesвЂ™ warning inside the building before the twister hit, authorities said at least six of the 116 people who died in the tornado in Joplin were killed at St. JohnвЂ™s. Five of the dead were patients and one was a visitor. Elliott and his grandmoth- er were among the fortunate. When they emerged from the stairwell, they didnвЂ™t recognize the hospital. The Wichita, Kan., teenager said that when the twister struck, he didnвЂ™t have time to move his grandfather from his hospital bed and left him behind. When Elliott returned to the room, it was littered with debris, but his grandfather had suffered just one small scratch on his head. вЂњI was really worried, but I was really surprised,вЂќ Elliott said. While Elliott said he didnвЂ™t hear the warning from the hospital staff to take cover, he said doctors took control afterward, ordering everyone to evacuate the building as fast as possible. For the patients who couldnвЂ™t walk, Elliott and others used mattresses to slide them down the stairs. Hospitals/Beds, staff freed up Continued from Page 1A one woman who has no family.

Cox South canceled 19 elective surgeries Monday morning. вЂњOur top priority is opening hospital beds to care for tornado victims,вЂќ spokeswoman Stacy Fender said. вЂњWeвЂ™re asking people with loved ones in the hospital who are ready to be discharged to make transportation arrangements as soon as possible.вЂќ Cox said some of the administrators from the St. JohnвЂ™s Hospital in Springfield went to Joplin on Monday. The Springfield hospital canceled a lot of elective surgeries scheduled for Monday because of the tornado. She said the hospital is not at maximum capacity. вЂњIt definitely freed up a lot of beds, a lot of surgeons, a lot of nursing staff,вЂќ Cox said. вЂњWeвЂ™re able to handle it.вЂќ Hospitals at Cox South, Cox North and Cox Monett received about 100 patients affected by the tornado. Archer said the hospital initially heard that about 300 injured people might be brought to Springfield hospitals. CoxHealth worked with St. JohnвЂ™s to divide the patient load as they came in, Archer said About 70 people were brought to Cox South. Another 30, including psychiatric patients from the Joplin hospital, were brought to Cox North. Christine Roepke, an Ozarks Technical Community College student who is working as an emergency medical technical at Cox, said ambulance crews were working double shifts to ferry people to area hospitals. вЂњThere are people who say they saw a person die right next to them,вЂќ Roepke said. вЂњThere are a lot of people whose hair is matted with dirt and blood.

Ozark Police Chief Lyle Hodges said he and several other officers arrived in Joplin late Sunday and provided security for residences and businesses. Hodges said the destruction was unlike anything he had seen. вЂњIвЂ™ve seen tornado damage ... but this was as far as you could see,вЂќ Hodges said. вЂњYou couldnвЂ™t stand anywhere and see the edge of destruction. The houses were all destroyed. It wasnвЂ™t one here and one there.вЂќ Hodges said he and others provided security at a bank where only the ATM and vault were left standing. вЂњEverything else was a pile of rubble.вЂќ Ozark City Administrator Steve Childers said the public works department sent a crew of six, as well as a dump truck, front loader, chain saws and other equipment, to help with rescue and recovery efforts. Nixa and Ozark fire departments also sent crews. Christian County Sheriff Joey Kyle said he and about a dozen deputies took off-road vehicles to Joplin but found themselves among about 250 other police officers waiting to help. вЂњTheyвЂ™ve got an influx of volunteers,вЂќ he said. вЂњ...They really didnвЂ™t have anything else for us to do.вЂќ Kyle said the best thing for his department to do is to wait until the first wave of volunteers go home. ThatвЂ™s when he believes theyвЂ™ll be needed the most. вЂњThose people responding are going to go home sometime this week, and when they do, itвЂ™s going to leave a vacuum of volunteers,вЂќ he said. вЂњIвЂ™m going to go over there and try to organize that second wave.вЂќ Kyle plans to send four or five deputies a day to help augment recovery efforts. Linda Barger, assistant director of the Christian County Emergency Management Agency, said the department and volunteers will be available in coming days to provide relief.

GALENA Tornado takes out Stone County homes By Tara Muck [email protected] The National Weather Service says an EF2 tornado is to blame for destroying homes and turkey houses north of Galena on Sunday evening. Meteorologist Doug Cramer of the National Weather Service in Springfield said the tornado had winds up to 120 mph when it tore through rural Stone County about 7:10 p.m. Sunday. The tornado was on the ground for about 15 minutes, tracking just over seven miles before dissipating about five miles northeast of Galena, Cramer said. вЂњIt was a pretty decent tornado,вЂќ he said. Stone County Emergency Management Director Tom Martin said the tornado damaged nine homes and seven turkey houses. Of those, two modular homes are a complete loss, and five turkey houses were destroyed. No injuries were reported. Luckily, Martin said, residents took heed of the danger and left their homes before the tornado struck. Martin said the majority of damage was along Stone County Route AA, Missouri 176, Johnson Rowe Drive, Horse Creek Road, Bass Hollow Road and Coon Ridge Road. вЂњThereвЂ™s lots of trees down,вЂќ he said. вЂњWeвЂ™re still trying to get roads cleaned up.вЂќ Cramer said survey crews were out Monday scoping a line from Galena west to Joplin, where a deadly tornado hit about 6 p.m. Sunday. вЂњI think we had some tornado touchdowns along that line, so thatвЂ™s where we sent our survey teams,вЂќ Cramer said. By late Monday, the survey crew had not reported its findings to the NWS office, Cramer said. NEWS LEADER AFTER: Much of St. MaryвЂ™s Catholic Church in Joplin was destroyed in the tornado.

St. MaryвЂ™s Catholic Church вЂ” with little more than a frame topped by a large cross still standing вЂ” and its attached elementary school were destroyed by SundayвЂ™s tornado. The Rev. Justin D. Monaghan is the priest for the parish, which serves nearly 650 families. Monaghan, who lives in the church rectory next door, sought safety in a bathtub when the tornado hit. The residence was severely damaged, a spokeswoman for the Catholic diocese said, but parishioners came and helped dig their priest out. Monaghan was not injured and spent the night with a church family, Recy Moore reported. St. PeterвЂ™s Catholic Church, about 20 blocks north of St. MaryвЂ™s, was spared any damage, as were St. PeterвЂ™s Junior High and McAuley High School nearby. The high school was used as an overflow triage center after the storm destroyed St. JohnвЂ™s Medical Center, said Gene Koester, principal at the school. JoplinвЂ™s Memorial Hall was the primary triage center. The building is also being used as an overnight shelter. Koester estimated 200 people were served Sunday night at the school in the triage and shelter. вЂњWe even set up a counseling session in the chapel,вЂќ Koester said. вЂњFather J. (Friedel, pastor at St. PeterвЂ™s) did that last night.вЂќ The junior high also opened as a shelter.

According to a national drug store survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back to the market under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, the ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, rheumatism, tendonitis, and more.

Its sister food bank in Kansas City, Harvesters, is sending donations directly to Joplin. The food bank in Columbia is delivering donations to Harvesters, and the food bank in Cape Girardeau is sending donations to Ozarks Food Harvest. вЂњWe are working closely with our member agency in Carthage this morning, the Carthage Crisis Center, who has already delivered two truckloads to Joplin,вЂќ Bart Brown, president/CEO at Ozarks Food Harvest, said Monday. вЂњThe Wildwood Baptist Church in Joplin, another partner of ours, is currently serving as a triage.

People from Tennessee, Illinois and Kansas had contacted his group to volunteer, Beltz said. вЂњWe are trying to identify the needs and load appropriate equipment,вЂќ Beltz said. Red Cross Greater Ozarks Regional Center opened a shelter Sunday night at the Missouri Southern State University gym, at 3950 E. Newman Road, said Joann Moore, spokeswoman for the local chapter. A hundred remained Monday morning. On Monday, majors Norman and Claire Grainger of the Salvation Army headed to Joplin. At least three Salvation Army canteens from the tri-state area were also on their way to assist responders and survivors, including the Springfield canteen that recently assisted with flooding in Illinois. As of Monday, the Salvation Army did not activate as a shelter but continued to work with the Red Cross. In an open message, Kristy Nelson, interim executive director of Habitat for Humanity Springfield, outlined her groupвЂ™s plan. вЂњWe have had many phone calls from people wanting to reach out and help our neighbors in Joplin,вЂќ she wrote. вЂњWords cannot describe the devastation the area has experi- enced.вЂќ The Springfield group had been in contact with the Joplin Habitat for Humanity affiliate, which was not able to account for all Habitat family partners as of noon Monday. вЂњThere were three Habitat homes in the path of the tornado, and we are anxiously waiting for an update on those families,вЂќ she wrote.

Unlike multiple storms that killed more than 300 people last month across the South, Joplin was hit by just one exceptionally powerful tornado. Not since a June 1953 tornado in Flint, Mich., had a single twister been so deadly. That storm also killed 116, according to the National Weather Service. Authorities were prepared to find more bodies in the rubble throughout this town of 50,000 people. Gov. Jay Nixon did not want to guess how high the toll would go. But he said: вЂњClearly, itвЂ™s on its way up.вЂќ Seventeen people were pulled alive from the rubble. An unknown number of people were hurt. While many residents had up to 17 minutes of warning, rain and hail may have drowned out the sirens. As rescuers toiled in the debris, a strong thunderstorm lashed the crippled city. Rescue crews had to move gingerly around downed power lines and jagged chunks of debris. Fires, gas fumes and unstable buildings posed constant threats. Searchers fanned out across several square miles. Groups went door to door, making quick checks of property that in many places had been stripped to its foundations. National Weather Service Director Jack Hayes said the storm was given a preliminary rating of EF4 вЂ” the second-highest assigned to TORNADOVIDEO.NET This frame grab from video shows lightning inside the massive Joplin tornado. twisters. The storm had winds of 190 to 198 mph and at times was three-quarters of a mile wide. Some of the most startling damage was at St. JohnвЂ™s Regional Medical Center, where staff had only moments to hustle patients into hallways. Six people died there вЂ” five patients and a visitor. The storm blew out hundreds of windows and caused damage so extensive that doctors had to abandon the hospital. A crumpled helicopter lay on its side in the parking lot. Dr. Jim Riscoe said some members of his emergency room staff showed up after the tornado with injuries of their own, but they worked through the night anyway. вЂњI spent most of my life at that hospital,вЂќ Riscoe said. вЂњItвЂ™s awful. I had two pregnant nurses who dove under gurneys ... ItвЂ™s a testimony to the human spirit.вЂќ As the tornado bore down on their trailer home, Joshua Wohlford, his pregnant girlfriend and their two toddlers fled to a Walmart store. The family narrowly escaped after a shelf of toys partially collapsed, forming a makeshift tent that shielded them. вЂњIt was 15 minutes of hell,вЂќ Wohlford said. At a Fastrip store, 20 people ran into a pitch-black cooler as the building began to collapse around them. They documented their experience with a video. The audio was even more terrifying вЂ” ear-splitting wind, objects getting smashed, wailing children and a woman praying. Brennan Stebbins said the group crouched on the floor, clinging to and comforting each other. No one was seriously hurt. Shielded by mattresses, former lawmaker Chuck Surface rode out the storm in his basement with his wife, daughter, granddaughter and dog. After about five minutes, the deafening roar stopped. вЂњWhen it got to where we thought we could look out, we went to the top of the stairs and there was no roof вЂ” it was all open air.вЂќ Dazed survivors tried to salvage clothes, furniture and family photos. Kelley FritzвЂ™s sons, both Eagle Scouts, rushed into the neighborhood after realizing every home was destroyed. When they returned, she said, вЂњmy sons had deceased children in their arms.вЂќ Justin Gibson stood outside the tangled remains of a Home Depot and pointed to a black pickup that had been tossed into them. It belonged to his roommateвЂ™s brother, last seen at the store with his two young daughters. вЂњI donвЂ™t know the extent of this yet,вЂќ Gibson said, вЂњbut I know IвЂ™ll have friends and family dead.вЂќ Three firefighters from Battlefield were among emergency workers from throughout the region who were in Joplin to help with recovery efforts. Battlefield Fire Capt. Jake Schleuter has worked at disaster scenes before, but вЂњIвЂ™ve never been to anything like this.вЂќ Fellow Battlefield firefighter Peter Rauch urged civilians to stay away. вЂњItвЂ™s hard enough trying to find organization in the chaos without all the tourists,вЂќ he said. Contributing: News-Leader reporter Roseann Moring вЂ�IT WAS SPILLING OVER INTO OUR CLASSвЂ™ Schools waste no time in organizing efforts to help victims By Claudette Riley [email protected] After a powerful tornado shredded Joplin schools and abruptly ended the school year, area districts quickly organized to help. Joplin Superintendent CJ Huff announced Monday that classes were canceled for the rest of the 2010-11 school year. A note posted on the district website confirmed that three schools вЂ” including Joplin High вЂ” were destroyed and many other school buildings incurred damage. The district plans to rebuild but will concentrate this week on finding and helping students and teachers. About half of Springfield schools вЂ” including all five high schools вЂ” announced plans within 24 hours of the tornado to raise money or collect donations. A few schools will allow students to wear pajamas and hats to school or listen to music during lunch for a donation. Others are collecting coins, gift cards and critical personal hygiene items. At Field Elementary, fifthgraders already were studying a unit entitled вЂњHelp is on the Way,вЂќ which looks at how relief organizations support needy cities, states and countries. Those students issued a challenge for every classroom to raise $200. Some schools have transformed existing projects or school fundraisers to help Joplin families. Third-graders at Rountree Elementary already were planning to show their photography during a gallery show Thursday. It was part of a lesson about how вЂњVisual Media Promotes Social Change.вЂќ But images of the devastation just 70 miles west of Springfield spurred the students to turn it into an auction. All proceeds will go to the tornado victims. Teacher Nicki Foltz said the students met Monday and talked about time they spent with family in Joplin and other connections to the city. вЂњIt wasnвЂ™t just about the people in Joplin,вЂќ she said. вЂњIt was spilling over into our class.вЂќ Foltz said the experience will provide a lasting lesson for the students. вЂњEven though theyвЂ™re kids, even though theyвЂ™re little, they can make a difference,вЂќ she said. вЂњThey can make a change in the world.вЂќ A growing number of area districts also announced efforts Monday. Willard Superintendent Kent Medlin challenged the 4,200-student district to вЂњfill a truck with donations.вЂќ ItвЂ™s part of a larger effort by the Willard Chamber of Commerce to collect items quickly. He called in building principals to organize the help. The chamber will pick up donated items on Thursday. вЂњI know this is only 1-day notice, however the need for the supplies is immediate,вЂќ Medlin said in a release. вЂњThis is one small way that we can help this effort.вЂќ JOPLIN TORNADO NEWS-LEADER вЂў News-Leader.com 116 Confirmed deaths in Joplin as of press time 17 People pulled alive from the rubble 500 Injured, according to a USA Today estimate вЂў Tuesday, May 24, 2011 5A 7 miles 190+ mph Of destruction was carved through Joplin (NWS) 2,000 Wind speeds reached during the tornado Structures were damaged or destroyed, approximately SNAPSHOTS Rain, hail add insult to injury By Roseann Moring [email protected] VALERIE MOSLEY / NEWS-LEADER This Kum & Go store is among the estimated 2,000 structures damaged or destroyed by the Joplin tornado. Damage Continued from Page 1A the feline hiding under the bed. Around the corner, Dottie and Tim Sumners were able to find scores of framed photos and albums. Although they doubted the storm would be dangerous, the couple rushed to Eastvue Baptist Church, where Tim Sumners is the pastor. вЂњIвЂ™ll never disregard the sirens again,вЂќ Dottie Sumners said. вЂњWe have many times before.вЂќ Tim Sumners said they had lived in that house for 33 years, and he plans to rebuild. вЂњWeвЂ™ll make it,вЂќ he said. As storm clouds menaced again about 9 a.m. Monday, the Great Plains Federal Credit Union served as a temporary shelter for weary search crews. Firefighters and task force members laughed when asked if theyвЂ™d gotten any sleep. A loud radio was tuned to KZRG, which took calls from those who needed help and others who wanted to give it. Also seeking shelter in the relatively unscarred bank building was Barton County bail bond agent Bryan Lemmons. Lemmons made the drive to Joplin after hearing that some families couldnвЂ™t find their loved ones. He knew his skills could help. Seeking survivors VALERIE MOSLEY / NEWS-LEADER Roger Dedick walks down 18th Street, where his home was destroyed, on Monday. He recalled seeing an elderly woman searching in the rain for her cat. вЂњThereвЂ™s so much loss. People are holding onto whatever they can ... which isnвЂ™t much,вЂќ he said. After a 20-minute break and though the rain was still falling, the firefighters and volunteers went back to work. North of the hardest-hit areas, the Missouri Southern State University campus became a kind of headquarters for the homeless and hungry. Perry Elkins of the American Red Cross managed the shelter in the school gym. He said 65 people stayed there Sunday night. By noon Monday, it was up to 110. вЂњThis is certainly some of the most devastating scenes IвЂ™ve ever seen,вЂќ Elkins said. Although Jeff MalleyвЂ™s house was destroyed on New Hampshire Avenue, he made it through. Malley said he, a friend and his dog, Sprocket, survived by holing up in a closet. вЂњIt was dark inside at first, then it was daylight,вЂќ he said. The walls of the closet were the only part of the house left standing. Malley said watching his roof tear away has left him a bit shaken. вЂњIвЂ™m afraid to stand here with this rain and the clouds.вЂќ News-Leader photographer Valerie Mosley contributed to this report. SPRINGFIELD RESPONSE Local government agencies send aid to Joplin By Amos Bridges [email protected] The city of Springfield and Greene County sent dozens of staff to Joplin in the wake of SundayвЂ™s tornado. By today the number was expected to exceed 100. Police and sheriffвЂ™s deputies, firefighters and public works equipment operators formed the majority of the local response. A team of about 16 people from Greene County Emergency Management arrived in Joplin about 9 p.m. Sunday, said county spokeswoman Jenny Edwards. The group included a Springfield 911 dispatch supervisor and trained search personnel. They also brought related equipment. John VincentвЂ™s house was left partially standing after SundayвЂ™s tornado, though the bedroom is gone. There is not nearly enough left to live in, however, and MondayвЂ™s rainstorm threatened to drown what remained. VincentвЂ™s driveway was a sixinch puddle full of debris. To navigate it, Vincent, 59, and coworkers helping him sift through the wreckage walked over the familyвЂ™s garage door and a fallen tree. Hail that fell in the early evening added insult to injury as helpers packed the familyвЂ™s things into a truck. The family planned to stay Monday night with relatives in Kansas. After that, вЂњWhat am I going to do? Where am I going to go?вЂќ Sally Vincent asked as she sat in the ruins of their home. вЂњSo many questions, and I donвЂ™t have the answers.вЂќ Among the things swept up in the tornado were obituary photos for three of her children. Without the help of her husbandвЂ™s boss and coworkers, sheвЂ™d be lost, she said. Her husband was more stoic. вЂњWhat are you going to do?вЂќ he said. вЂњIt is what it is.вЂќ Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott and more than 40 deputies responded Sunday, as well. Deputies conducted search and rescue efforts, patrol assignments and helped set up and manage a makeshift morgue where the bodies of dozens of victims were processed, according to a news release. Springfield police sent 10 officers, with more on standby. Several department chaplains went to help with non-department efforts and the Springfield Police Officers Association was trying to help any Joplin officers who may have lost their homes. A number of off-duty Springfield firefighters were helping, the city said in a news release, in addition to the technical rescue team that left Sunday night, minutes after the tornado struck. The team is specially trained to deal with large-scale building collapses and carries equipment to breach or tunnel into collapsed buildings to rescue trapped victims, the city release said. The initial team of eight was relieved by another team of six Monday. Clearing debris Additional local aid has included tetanus vaccine from the Springfield-Greene County Health Department and heavy equipment from city and county public works departments. Edwards, in Joplin on Monday, said four county highway department crews with backhoes were working in the area, вЂњclearing debris from roads and assisting the local public works department.вЂќ Springfield Public Works expected to send about 30 personnel by this morning, along with equipment including two loaders, more than 100 barricades, five backhoes and five chipper trucks with chippers. City sewer maintenance sent a backhoe, as well, and had additional equipment from the treatment plant вЂ”dump trucks, a generator and light tower вЂ” ready to go if needed. State Rep. Bill Lant said he spent all day Monday talking to emergency workers, including a team still looking for survivors as rain fell in early twilight. вЂњNobodyвЂ™s giving up at this point on survivors,вЂќ said Lant, RJoplin, noting at least seven had been found earlier. Lant said planning had turned toward finding housing and other necessities for displaced residents. вЂњItвЂ™s just mind-numbing,вЂќ he said. вЂњYou canвЂ™t find one person out of a dozen who can tell you whatвЂ™s in their medicine cabinet, but when you donвЂ™t have those things, itвЂ™s pretty destructive.вЂќ Rain slows relief Pouring rain Monday night hampered relief efforts while concealing the level of destruction near St. JohnвЂ™s Regional Medical Center. The Salvation Army and other service groups set up shop in a parking lot across the street from the hospital, which was vacant and dark after sustaining heavy damage. Service workers said most people in the area left earlier in the day. Tim Anderson of Kansas City said he took about 10 groups of people to a main road, where they were met by friends and family. Anderson works for a company that responds after natural disasters to prepare buildings for reconstruction. вЂњIt's like (Hurricane) Katrina on land,вЂќ he said. вЂњIt looked just like this.вЂќ Bringing in help A FazoliвЂ™s restaurant вЂ” one of few nearby eateries that was open вЂ” brought in extra help from Springfield to take care of the crowd of customers. вЂњWe were full pretty much all day and all night,вЂќ said Danielle McIntosh, 19, who had come from a FazoliвЂ™s in Springfield. About 8 p.m., they began running out of food and were giving away most of what was left, she said. COMMUNICATIONS With phones out, many send messages online By Kathryn Wall [email protected] In the wake of SundayвЂ™s deadly tornado in Joplin, telephone communication came almost to a standstill. As family and friends elsewhere worried because they could not reach Joplin residents, those untouched by the storm were powerless to call from some areas of the city. The remaining phone system in place soon became overloaded with calls. Many turned to other technology to get the word out. Websites were quickly set up to disseminate information. Those with Internet access assured family and friends they were safe. Others posted pictures of brothers, sisters, grandparents or pets, hoping someone else in the Joplin area had seen them. A вЂњJoplin, MO Tornado RecoveryвЂќ Facebook page, set up shortly after the storm, had 85,000 subscribers by Monday afternoon. Several posters, some from as far away as California, asked how they could help. Some posters announced local fundraising events. Others posted pictures of family members, hoping to get word that friends and family made it through the storm. вЂњLooking for Mae Smith ... she is an 89 yr. old lady and we canвЂ™t find her,вЂќ one post said. вЂњIf you have seen Justin Wayne Solon tell him to contact his brother. They are worried about him,вЂќ another poster asked. A similar Facebook page, вЂњAnimals Lost & Found from the Joplin, MO tornado,вЂќ had descriptions and photos of animals found after the storm. Twitter updated with around 10 messages a minute with mentions of Joplin. Messages included residents sending pictures of destruction, aid agencies offering help and celebrities sending condolences. The American Red Cross utilized its Safe and Well website (safeandwell.communityos.org) to help people find others after the storm. Users may register on the site so family elsewhere can see that they are safe. Problems with phone service also affected agencies responding to the area. John Archer, director of emergency services at Cox South, said the biggest challenge in responding to the tornado was communications. Archer said that because communications had been mostly wiped out, the fire department, police department and various ambulance services each operated their own incident commands to coordinate efforts. That made it difficult to track patients who were taken to hospitals. Communications companies are working to restore phone service. AT&T has multiple teams in the area, including its Network Disaster Recovery group. A satellite truck was brought in Sunday night, according to a news release. The equipment was expected to be operational by Monday evening. Additional equipment will be placed in the area of U.S. 71 and 20th Street to help ease the capacity loads on current phone systems. Verizon Wireless said Monday it will send three temporary cell towers to provide emergency wireless capacity and coverage in and around Joplin. Additional temporary resources, including a mobile charging station and a temporary store, are being sent to Joplin. 6A Tuesday, May 24, 2011 NEWS-LEADER вЂў News-Leader.com SEN SATIONA summer savings L ON SHORTS & CAPRIS 4 Days Only sale Fri-Mon, May 27-30 14 99 sale 1299 and under ALL Mens Lee & Wrangler Shorts ALL Ladies Lee Capris compare at $26-$45. reg. $13-$22.

[email protected] The Springfield business community is stepping up to help tornado victims in Joplin. At least nine local banks will accept donations at every branch. They include Guaranty Bank, Bancorp South, Empire Bank, Great Southern, Metropolitan Bank, US Bank, Oakstar Bank, Liberty Bank and Springfield First Community. Two of the banks, Empire Bank and Great Southern, each agreed to match up to $5,000 in total donations received. A lengthy list of Springfield area businesses have already pledged help to Joplin families devastated by the tornado. Banks, grocery stores and companies вЂ” both big and small вЂ” have offered to collect donations from employees and customers. Some have also committed money, supplies and skills. The Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce decided early Monday to adopt the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce and serve as an вЂњinformation hubвЂќ for businesses that want to contribute in any way. вЂњWeвЂ™re trying to figure out what their needs are,вЂќ said Claire Faucett, spokeswoman for the Springfield chamber. вЂњWeвЂ™re here to collect information, do whatever we can.вЂќ Faucett said because itвЂ™s too early to know the extent of the tornado devastation, the Springfield area business community is focused on ways to meet the tornado victimsвЂ™ immediate needs. Some are working with counterparts in Joplin, answering a call for help from the State Emergency Management Agency or coordinating with large relief organizations such as the American Red Cross or Convoy of Hope. Others simply contacted the emergency management operations in Jasper County and plan to deliver donations this week. At least nine local banks will accept donations, at every branch. They include Guaranty Bank, Bancorp South, Empire Bank, Great Southern, Metropolitan Bank, US Bank, Oakstar Bank, Liberty Bank and Springfield First Community. Two of the banks, Empire Bank and Great Southern, each agreed to match up to $5,000 in total donations received. Nearly every Springfield area grocery store will accept monetary donations today. In Springfield, four Steelman Transportation employees were dispatched to pick up heavy equipment from St. Louis, Kansas City and Oklahoma City. Brett Sheets, a co-owner of the local company, said there were also вЂњthree or four other drivers on standby.вЂќ On the Missouri Department of Transportation emergency response list, the company is picking up industrial generators, industrial light towers вЂ” often used to illuminate large construction projects вЂ” and backhoes in those cities. The equipment will be transported to Joplin. вЂњSomebody needs to help, and we believe in giving back to our Missouri communities,вЂќ Sheets said. вЂњJoplin is our neighbor.вЂќ The Springfield Paper Company and the Edward Jones branch office in Republic are accepting donations. Meeks Lumber is transferring key supplies вЂ” such as water, nails and chain saws вЂ” to Joplin. Restaurants and fast food companies are also getting involved and inspiring each other. Jeff Williams, owner of the Sonic on Commercial Street, was initially contacted by Bowerman Elementary about raising funds for Joplin. Williams called the corporation that owns the other eight Sonics in Springfield. Together, the drive-ins will donate 10 percent of sales from 4-9 p.m. today to storm victims. вЂњWe all feel the same way вЂ” thatвЂ™s what you should do,вЂќ he said. вЂњIf youвЂ™re lucky enough to be successful and youвЂ™re lucky enough to have a job you love, you should give back.вЂќ This week, the Johnny Morris family and Bass Pro Shops are working with NASCAR driver Jamie McMurray вЂ” a Joplin native вЂ” to load a trailer with relief effort supplies, including canned goods. Customers can drop off donations to help fill a second trailer, which will be located in the parking lot, through Monday. вЂњWe are deeply saddened by the tragic events in Joplin, and our hearts go out to those families affected by this event,вЂќ said Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris. вЂњJamie McMurray, the Morris family and the extended Bass Pro Shops family want to do everything we can to help during this time.вЂќ Weather forecasters scrambling to fathom the size of the tornado that hit Joplin on Sunday are warning that more violent weather could hit the region later today. вЂњI do have a lot of concern for Tuesday and Wednesday,вЂќ National Weather Service forecaster John Kurtz said Monday. There likely will be a break in stormy weather early today as a stubborn low pressure system moves east, he said. But another low now in the Rockies will combine with a dry line later today in Oklahoma and Kansas to spawn more storms, Kurtz said. The oncoming storm system is moving slowly, so it likely wonвЂ™t arrive in southwest Missouri until tonight, he said. вЂњWhat weвЂ™re really concerned about is late tomorrow, into the evening hours and overnight,вЂќ Kurtz said. The system that is expected to move into the region follows the same pattern of storms that produced the EF-4 tornado that hit Joplin, he said. It appears now the oncoming storm system might not be as intense, Kurtz said. Thunderstorms could be strong enough to develop some isolated tornadoes, he said. The storms also will produce large hail and damaging winds. Flooding also will be a concern into Wednesday morning. In addition to the tornado, the Joplin area and counties to the south that send runoff into Table Rock Lake experienced heavy rains Monday and flooding. Storms moving into the 1896 TOLL: 255 SundayвЂ™s tornado in Joplin was the deadliest to hit Missouri in more than 50 years, but it wasnвЂ™t the worst in the stateвЂ™s history. Officials say at least 116 people have been confirmed dead in Joplin, and they fear the death toll will continue to rise. The federal Storm Prediction Center says the worst tornado in Missouri history hit in St. Louis in May 1896, when 255 people died. Ninety-nine people were killed in an April 1880 tornado in Marshfield, and 98 were killed by a May 1927 tornado in the southeast Missouri city of Poplar Bluff. In recent decades, the worst tornado death toll before the Joplin tornado was on May 20, 1957, when 37 people died in Jackson County. вЂ” The Associated Press 1.

By Mike Penprase [email protected] The same storm system that brought a deadly tornado to Joplin could have a different kind of impact on people living on Lake Taneycomo. Heavy rain measuring two inches in some places means a lot of runoff is flowing into Table Rock Lake. That prompted the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to open the floodgates at Table Rock Dam. By Monday evening, 10 floodgates were open one foot, releasing 26,000 cubic feet of water per second into Lake Taneycomo. Floodgates upstream at Beaver Lake also were opened Monday. ThatвЂ™s not enough to cause serious flooding below the dam, but word from the corps that it might increase releases is cause for concern, Taney County Emergency Management Director Chris Berndt said. вЂњTwenty should not do any damage, and 26 will be minimal, but there will be houses affected,вЂќ Berndt said. Word that releases could go higher means people living along the lake should pay close attention to changing conditions, he said. вЂњTheyвЂ™ve seen all the news; they know whatвЂ™s going on,вЂќ he said. By 7 p.m., the corps told local officials releases would go to 34,000 cfs. The corps has to release water from Table Rock because it is on the rise again, lake manager Greg Oller said. By Monday afternoon, the lake had risen to just above 930 feet. вЂњWeвЂ™re rising,вЂќ he said. вЂњWeвЂ™ve increased a foot and one quarter in the last 24 hours.вЂќ The corps is advising people living along Lake Taneycomo that releases from Table Rock could increase substantially. Recent rains have filled all the lakes in the White River system, so releasing water is necessary, Oller said. вЂњAll the lakes are full; theyвЂ™re not going to be able to hold a lot,вЂќ he said. In Branson, the city cleared the first two rows of its recreational vehicle park on the lakefront on Monday, and had representatives go door to door informing people living along the lakeshore about releases from the dam, city spokesman Jerry Adams said.

By Mike Penprase [email protected] DEAN CURTIS / NEWS-LEADER A median cable on I-44 near Strafford may have kept this truck from crossing into the oncoming lanes after a recent accident. MoDOTвЂ™s planned cutbacks would eliminate additional median safety cable systems. MoDOT puts brakes on projects Declining fuel use cuts agencyвЂ™s tax revenue; new sources needed. By Roseann Moring [email protected] It appears Missourians will soon face a choice between two distasteful options: a tax hike or growing road congestion. The Missouri Department of Transportation recently proposed to dramatically scale back its efforts, including an end to all new construction projects. That proposal is scheduled for a June 8 vote. The reductions have been a long time coming, but this proposal highlights the need for a new plan for funding transportation infrastructure in the state, officials say. вЂњWe are off the cliff now,вЂќ said state Rep. Thomas Long, RSpringfield, the vice chairman of the House Transportation Committee. вЂњThis is the cliff that people have been talking about.вЂќ To reinvigorate construction, local and statewide transportation groups say MoDOT must receive more money. ThereвЂ™s little consensus on how that should happen, but it would almost certainly involve a tax or fee increase. Construction Though drivers most likely wonвЂ™t see significant effects for about five years, local transportation leaders say the cuts could soon lead to heavy traffic in rapidly expanding areas. Construction thatвЂ™s already been started, such as the 60/65 interchange, would be completed. But local officials say many areas need more projects just to keep up with a growing population, and anything that doesnвЂ™t already have state funding most likely wonвЂ™t get any. MoDOT will still perform road maintenance, but even projects such as larger road signs or new safety devices in roadway medians will be curtailed. For example, the city of Springfield would like to see improvements to James River Freeway, said Phil Broyles, the co-interim director of public works. He said the freeway could be widened between Campbell Avenue and Glenstone Avenue to relieve increasing traffic. And for safety reasons, heвЂ™d like to see a diverging diamond at the intersection of the freeway and Kansas Expressway. That would cost at least $3 million, he said вЂ” money the city simply cannot afford. This dearth of improvements will have serious effects on both Ozarkers and their jobs, said Ryan Mooney, the Springfield Area Chamber of CommerceвЂ™s vice president of economic development. вЂњTransportation networks really make the connections between people and where they live and where they work,вЂќ he said. A good transportation system can encourage employers to bring jobs to the area, he said. And it makes life much easier for people to commute to work. He said the area has so far kept up well with rapid population gains. вЂњBut we need to continue to do that,вЂќ he said.

District officials recommend the board award the contract for both projects to Joplin Roofing. The total amount of the proposed contract is $913,420. It was unclear Monday if the massive tornado that hit Joplin would affect the companyвЂ™s proposal. Parking lots This spring, the district requested bids to renovate parking lots for 10 schools. Four con- tractors submitted bids. Parking lots included in the project are Cowden, Disney, Pittman, Rountree, Sunshine and Truman elementary schools; Pleasant View Elementary and Middle School; Carver and Jarrett middle schools; and Glendale High School. Contractors were asked to separate the bid amounts for each parking lot, allowing the district to select the lowest bids for each project. The proposal includes awarding these contracts: В» $66,849 to Ball Paving of Springfield for Disney. It includes a new east drive and angle-in parking for the west See SCHOOLS, Page 2B Tom and Jean Stark recently stopped by the Habitat for Humanity ReStore to check things out and ended up loading their van with a bundle of wooden trim for remodeling work. вЂњWe just heard about it a while ago,вЂќ Bolivar resident Tom Stark said. The ReStore sits at 2410 S. Scenic Ave., across the street from Horton Smith Golf Course. ItвЂ™s one of hundreds of such stores now operating nationwide to help Habitat for Humanity in its mission of providing homes for the needy. An acquaintance told the Starks about the ReStore. The Starks are among an increasing number of people discovering that ReStores not only offer bargains, but a variety of building and remodeling materials, Habitat officials say. People running the money-making operation for Habitat for Humanity say they want more folks like the Starks to learn about the store. Offering prices much lower than retail, the store sells everything from paint to tile to doors and вЂ” when it comes to building materials вЂ” just about anything else. A drive-through вЂњReCycle for HomesвЂќ recyclable drop-off station planned to start at the store this summer also could tempt people into visiting the two warehouses that house Habitat offices and the ReStore, ReStore director Eric Allen said. Habitat wants the store to have more of a retail atmosphere and is updating its marketing. Linking up with customers on smartphones and via Facebook gets the word out on good deals faster than putting something on the storeвЂ™s website, Allen said, adding: вЂњWeвЂ™re really catching up to the 21st century here.вЂќ Habitat depends on the generosity of homebuilders, building material suppliers and even hospitals for the items it sells. Even the ReStoreвЂ™s home was donated. Allen, who started working for Habitat as a driver, has been around long enough to recall working in a crowded building on West Chestnut Expressway. When Keltner Enterprises donated the two structures now being used, Habitat ended up with a total of around 50,000 square feet of space for offices and the ReStore.

Increasingly numerous commuters between Christian County and Springfield must travel on those roads every day, so they will need upgrades more significant than MoDOT can afford. вЂњI think that what weвЂ™ll eventually have to see is a statewide tax,вЂќ Edwards said. Revenue MoDOTвЂ™s revenue this year is half of what it was last year, and itвЂ™s not likely to go up. The problem is that most of the departmentвЂ™s money comes from the fuel tax. The rise of fuel-efficient vehicles and movements away from gas altogether have led to declining fuel use, and that means less money coming in from the tax. The Missouri Transportation Alliance, a coalition of groups that is pushing for more transportation funds for the state, has been talking to Missourians for more than a year about new methods of revenue generation for MoDOT. Jewell Pateck, an organizer for the alliance, said the most talked-about options are an increase in the fuel tax, a sales tax dedicated to transportation or toll roads. But none has gained broad support among voters, who ReStore/Concept has grown since 1980s start Continued from Page 1B Even with that much space, the ReStore can be crowded, which is why the staff has been working to put in new shelving and storage areas to make more space available and shopping easier, Allen said. Regular customers like Debbie Beesley notice the changes. вЂњThey have worked their tails off out here,вЂќ Beesley said while shopping for a door. вЂњItвЂ™s looking good.вЂќ The first ReStore opened in the mid-1980s in Winnipeg, Canada, followed by the first U.S. store in Austin, Texas. The stores were seen as a way for Habitat to raise revenue and promote its message of sustainability, said Larry Gluth, senior vice president of Habitat for Humanity. The concept has grown, and there are now more than 750 ReStores nationwide with total sales estimated at between $350 million and $400 million annually, he said. вЂњThe number is continuing to grow,вЂќ Gluth said. The Springfield ReStoreвЂ™s revenues go to pay for two of the 10 or 11 homes Habitat plans to build this year, Habitat interim executive director Kristy Nelson said.

He said he has seen more awareness lately about MissouriвЂ™s transportation funding problem. And when Missourians are ready to embrace a proposal, the alliance will try to make it happen, he said. вЂњWe want to be a resource for Missourians to coalesce around a solution, but weвЂ™re waiting for Missourians to be ready for it,вЂќ he said. That is crucial, he said. вЂњItвЂ™s here. ItвЂ™s now. ItвЂ™s real,вЂќ Pateck said. вЂњIt affects every single person in our state.вЂќ said. That means when people and groups donate money for building homes, thatвЂ™s where the donations go, she said. Even the recession hasnвЂ™t affected donations much, Allen said. While lumber and other homebuilding materials arenвЂ™t as common, items such as cabinets and appliances removed during renovations are plentiful, he said. Some donations are so unusual they call for special treatment. That was the case when two 14-foot-tall antique doors with ornate ironwork and fittings were donated. The ReStore set up a silent auction, but the doors were sold when someone offered $1,000 for them, Allen said. вЂњI still have folks talk about them,вЂќ he said. than $1.7 million. The district initially estimated the cost at just under $1.5 million. The project will be funded by a $50 million bond issue approved by voters in November 2009. The administration recommends the board reject the bid and not award a contract. Earlier this year, bids for a different air conditioning project came in higher than expected. The district modified the design of the project and requested additional bids. The sheriff says someone called law enforcement from a nearby bar after overhearing a man talking about stabbing his girlfriend. The Sedalia Democrat reports that St. PikeвЂ™s 50year-old boyfriend was taken into custody Sunday night and is being held at the Henry County Detention Center. NEWS-LEADER вЂў News-Leader.com OTHER OPTIONS FOR TRANSPORTATION REVENUE State sales tax: Possibly the most popular option. But in this economy and political climate, voters are likely leery of a sales tax increase statewide, even a one-cent sales tax. Increased fuel tax: The state would have to increase the tax by at least 25 cents per gallon to bring revenue to the level that the state needs. That appears to be even less favorable to voters than the sales tax. Toll roads They are generally only used on roads with ongoing construction projects and a high traffic volume. This essentially limits them to interstates and would not be a feasible way to fund all construction. Mileage tax The president recently floated the idea of a per-mile tax, but he withdrew it quickly after serious criticism. No state has successfully implemented such a tax.

Civil wars still going on today Several countries in the Middle East undergoing changes in leadership. DEFINITION By Cliff Sain [email protected] It was 150 years ago that the United States became embroiled in its own Civil War, but civil wars are not a relic of the past. Civil wars are going on around the world today. That point is perhaps most obvious right now in the Middle East, where several countries are undergoing changes in leadership, potential changes in leadership, protests and demonstrations known collectively as the Arab Spring. So far, Arab Spring, which began in the north African county of Tunisia in December, has resulted in the overthrows of Tunisian President Ben Ali and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarek; an ongoing civil war in Libya where the United States is participating with the United Nations to enforce a no-fly zone against President Moammar GhadafiвЂ™s forces; civil uprisings against the governments of Syria, Yemen and Bahrain; and protests in other countries. Missouri State University assistant professor David Romano said it would not be completely accurate to compare those hostilities to AmericaвЂ™s Civil War. вЂњIf you were to do an American comparison, it would have more ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO, 2007 Rebels continue to battle Libyan leader Moammar GhadhafiвЂ™s forces. in common with the Revolution,вЂќ Romano said. He said the Arab Spring, like the Revolution, is the result of people who are fed up with authoritarian rule. Why now? So what changed? After all, many of these leaders have been in power for decades. Romano said it is because some of the conditions that allow authoritarian rule have eroded. вЂњThere are basically two justifications for authoritarian rule,вЂќ Romano said. One of those is security. The idea is that the public needs to give up freedoms to protect itself from the perceived threat. He said many Arab nations (includ- ing Iran, which is actually Persian) have portrayed Israel as that security threat. вЂњWe experienced that to some degree in America after 9/11,вЂќ Romano said. вЂњThe Patriot Act sacrificed some liberties to improve security.вЂќ The other item is economic. The idea is that authoritarian measures are needed to improve the economy. Romano said those two excuses for authoritarian rule have вЂњlost their lusterвЂќ in the Middle East. For one, in many Arab nations, citizens do not feel threatened by Israel, although Romano said Syrian and Iranian leaders still have some success with it. As far as the economic excuse, he said many citizens are tired of waiting.

The Tunisian and Egyptian presidents (and their governments) are gone, but upcoming elections will help determine what those countries will be like. Romano said that in Egypt there has been an increase in violence against Christians (up to 10 million live in Egypt), leading to fears that a less tolerant Islamic faction could rise to power. Egypt is important because it is the largest Arab nation, with 80 million people. It also receives the second largest amount of U.S. foreign aid (after Israel) as part of its peace treaty with Israel. Romano said a recent poll showed that 54 percent of Egyptians were in favor of canceling the peace treaty with Israel. Romano said that many people in the Middle East are afraid of democracy after witnessing the power vacuum in Iraq after the removal of Saddam Hussein. For the time being, there will be more violence in the Middle East. Recently in Yemen, the AP reported that a government crackdown on protests killed 150 people. Romano said government supporters in Syria are вЂњgunning down people right and left,вЂќ and that the Syrian people are more afraid of their government than in any country he has personally visited. The results of Arab Spring are still to be determined. Syrian President Bashar Assad and Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh are among those still in power, although protests continue.

A civil war can be defined as a war between people of the same country, either over leadership of the country, to enact change or because one group wants to separate from the other. Some define a civil war simply by the number of deaths that take place. Either way, it can be hard to determine when protests cross the line into civil war. Although it seems clear Libya is engulfed in a civil war, other Middle East nations are less clear, while others are past the initial overthrow of the government and are involved in a transition period that could still be defined as part of the overall civil war.

BUSINESS WATCH RONALD ZAK / THE ASSOCIATED PRESS European Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs Olli Rehn speaks on Monday. Fears over Greece shake European market LONDON вЂ” Europe's debt crisis returned to shake markets on Monday as fears over the solvency of Greece combined with concerns that Spain, or even Italy, may be dragged into the turmoil that has already seen three euro countries bailed out. Investors watched aghast last week as top policymakers clashed over how to deal with Greece's mountain of debt. While policymakers at the European Central Bank warned of the catastrophic effects of a Greek debt restructuring, officials in Brussels suggested a delay in bond repayments could help give Greece more time to regain market trust. Amid the confusion, Fitch on Friday downgraded Greece further below junk status and on Monday cut Belgium's outlook, while Standard & Poor's lowered Italy's rating outlook on the weekend. Falun Gong members suing Cisco Systems Inc. WASHINGTON вЂ” Members of the Falun Gong spiritual movement have filed a lawsuit against Cisco Systems Inc. accusing it of supplying the Chinese government with computer-networking equipment used to spy on and persecute dissidents. In a lawsuit filed last week, a group of Falun Gong practitioners alleges that Cisco provided networking gear and technical assistance to build and operate an elaborate system of Internet controls used by the Chinese government to track the online behavior of its citizens and block content it does not like. The lawsuit accuses Cisco of aggressively marketing and customizing its products for the system, known as the Golden Shield Project, with the understanding that the technology would be used for spying on dissident groups such as the Falun Gong. By using Cisco equipment, the lawsuit said, government officials were able to monitor dissidents' activities, including online meetings of Falun Gong congregations. The lawsuit said some dissidents were detained, tortured and even killed as a result; others disappeared.

Business Housing market a challenge for service members licans only got a hint of that this year. They got burned. They touched the hot stove.вЂќ Combined, Social Security and Medicare account for about a third of government spending, a share that will only grow. Economic experts say the cost of retirement programs for an aging society is the most serious budget problem facing the nation. The trustees who oversee Social Security and Medicare recently warned the programs are вЂњnot sustainableвЂќ over the long run under current financing. Nearly every solution for Social Security is politically toxic, because the choices involve cutting benefits or raising taxes. Medicare is even harder to fix because the cost of modern medicine is going up faster than the overall cost of living, outpacing economic growth as well as tax revenues. By Ricardo Alonso-zaldivar and Stephen Ohlemacher THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON вЂ” TheyвЂ™re not buying it. Most Americans say they donвЂ™t believe Medicare has to be cut to balance the federal budget, and ditto for Social Security, a new poll shows. The Associated Press-GfK poll suggests that arguments for overhauling the massive benefit programs to pare government debt have failed to sway the public. The debate is unlikely to be resolved before next yearвЂ™s elections for president and Congress. Americans worry about the future of the retirement safety net, the poll found, and 3 out of 5 say the two programs are vital to their basic financial security as they age. That helps explain why the Republican Medicare privatization plan flopped, and why President Barack ObamaвЂ™s THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nicholas Read says there would be a вЂњrebellion among votersвЂќ if Medicare goes away. Medicare cuts to finance his health care law contributed to Democrats losing control of the House in last yearвЂ™s elections. Medicare seems to be turning into the new third rail of politics. вЂњIвЂ™m pretty confident Medicare will be there, because there would be a rebellion among voters,вЂќ said Nicholas Read, 67, a retired teacher who lives near Buffalo, N.Y. вЂњRepub- By Cristina Silva THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS вЂ” Air Force Lt. Col. Michael Ballek thought the fourbedroom house bordered by sage bushes and mountain roads on the edge of Las Vegas was a good deal when he purchased it for his growing family in 2007. NevadaвЂ™s skyrocketing home prices had dipped slightly that year, and the so-called experts all assured him he was getting in at the bottom of the market. Property values continued to fall, however, and next month Ballek expects to sell his familyвЂ™s home for less than what he owes on it. He doesnвЂ™t have much of a choice. Like thousands of service members, Ballek is moving across the nation this summer per the militaryвЂ™s order. вЂњHow can you feel?вЂќ Ballek said. вЂњItвЂ™s frustrating.вЂќ Depressed property values have become a national crisis for homeowners who purchased their houses before the collapse of the housing market. But for members of the military who must comply with relocation orders or face disciplinary action, waiting out the housing crash is often not an option. In many ways, military homeowners have no one to blame but themselves. Service men and women begin every assignment with the knowledge that they could be relocated at any point, and will likely be moved within five years. The Department of Defense encourages military employees to rent, not buy. Nevertheless, buying a home is common practice among military members. In good years, they purchased properties with the intent of turning them for profit, saving them for retirement or renting them out as an investment. вЂњPeople want to think about the future, where they are going to put down roots,вЂќ said Steve Strobridge, government relations director for the Military Officers Association of America. вЂњIf you only rent, I think there is a sense among military people that when you retire maybe you will be behind the power curve in terms of your financial future.вЂќ Marine Lt. Col. David Berke purchased a home outside of Las Vegas when he was relocated to work at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas in 2008. He felt certain that the bubble had burst and that the housing market was on the brink of recovery. Berke, 38, is married with two daughters. He plans to rent his house after he is relocated to Florida this year. The house is worth too little to sell it. вЂњThe amount of money we would lose on the home was just not something we could afford,вЂќ he said. Business keeps booming at deal-a-day websites JACQUELYN MARTIN / THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Leslie Hall (left) works inside an office as Kelly Bigel, 22, (right) and other members of the merchant services department of LivingSocial work in a hallway at LivingSocialвЂ™s offices in Washington. Groupon, competitors growing at rapid pace. By Ellen Gibson THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Groupon is adding 150 employees a month at its U.S. headquarters and trains them in a church because the conference rooms at its headquarters arenвЂ™t big enough. Ideeli has crammed so much electronic equipment into its New York office that the power goes out every day. And at LivingSocial, well, the living is a little too social. Its third office in Washington, open just two months, ran out of room so fast that employees have to work in the hallway. The sites are expected to generate $2.7 billion in revenue this year, more than doubling from last year, according to Local Offer Network, which collects and distributes deals from hundreds of sites. Daily-deal sites are thriving because they benefit both merchants and consumers without requiring tech savvy from the former, says Opus Research analyst Greg Sterling. Some companies have gripes, though. They say the sudden influx of customers overwhelms staff or that Groupon demands an unfair cut.

Two, donвЂ™t stay away from organizations in Springfield that can ultimately assist our neighbors in Joplin. Individuals stepping up will make a difference now. LETTERS Federal deficit Here are some of the groups that would like you to donate time, money or blood: Greater Ozarks Chapter of the Red Cross, 832-9500; Convoy of Hope, www.convoyofhope.org; United Way of the Ozarks, sends checks to 320 N. Jefferson Ave., Springfield, Mo., 65806, marked вЂњJoplin Tornado Disaster Relief;вЂќ Community Blood Center of the Ozarks, a list of area blood drives is at www.cbco.org or call 1800-280-5337 and Ozarks Food Harvest, deliver donations to The Food Bank at 2810 N. Cedarbrook Ave. You may also wish to make plans within your church or civic organization to keep a continuous supply of needed mate- OUR VOICE This editorial is the view of the News-Leader Editorial Board. NLL Want to help? Go to this editorial and find the link ONLINEE to information for helping victims of the Joplin tornado. Linda Ramey-Greiwe President and Publisher David Stoeffler Executive Editor Don Underwood Opinion Page Editor Cheryl Whitsitt Managing Editor Linda Leicht Senior Reporter rials and money flowing in the weeks to come. Also coming up is the daunting debris clean up. Now is the time to begin putting together that church team or group of volunteers to clean up in Joplin when the call goes out. Also, keep in mind that our first responders are assisting in Joplin. For example, City Utilities has sent line crews and the Springfield police are providing security around damaged areas among other duties. These people will be working long hours. But, as CU officials point out, SpringfieldвЂ™s requirements will be met. So, if your call for a city service isnвЂ™t responded to quite as quickly, be patient. WeвЂ™ve been through this before. We know youвЂ™ll respond as you have before. Our friends and neighbors are in need and together weвЂ™ll meet that need. DISASTER IN THE OZARKS Cartoon, letter far apart on issue Patrick Blair Springfield ItвЂ™s apropos that the May 13 News-Leader editorial cartoon by Gary Varvel (вЂњSacred cowвЂќ) was juxtaposed with Richard GreenвЂ™s letter to the editor, вЂњLong should explain voteвЂќ of the same day. Both were in close proximity on the opinion page but there could be no more clear illustration of two perspectives on government spending that are miles apart. Varvel is clearly one who вЂњgets itвЂќ and Green is clearly one who doesnвЂ™t. Sadly, VarvelвЂ™s cartoon is so very true. Do you have an opinion? Local cartoonists can send a take on local or state issues to [email protected] news-leader.com. These вЂњvisual letters to the editorвЂќ reflect the view of the artist, not the News-Leader editorial board. McCarthys Staff does good job on MSU issue Bob Faenger Springfield [Executive Editor] David Stoeffler and [reporter] Didi Tang, did a wonderful job for us in Missouri on his recent study of the вЂњMcCarthy incidentsвЂќ at MSU. The McCarthys (and others there) believe they are living in a dream world of limitless money and self-gratification, at the expense of the public. ... They need to wake up, and David sure did provide an alarm clock. The вЂњaverage JoeвЂќ definitely does find it wasteful. Why focus attention on the McCarthys? Why not? The recent cancellation of another trip to China by others at MSU showed that they вЂњmightвЂќ be taking a little more thought on MSUвЂ™s mission to citizens of Missouri and the United States of America. Why donвЂ™t we save that money and send some of our own citizens to MSU? JOHN LOGAN / BRANSON Obama Ambition comes before country Shirley Harrell Springfield Send a memorial rose to the passing of the United States Constitution and the nation as they have been known for the last 234 years. It is sad and troubling to observe what is happening in gov- ernment as a result of electing an inexperienced вЂ” but very ambitious вЂ” person who seems to be hungry for personal power and world recognition. This man seems to have an agenda of his own, aside from leading our nation to safety and prosperity, and that is to gain status as a global leader. The hymn writers of patriotic songs graced our nation so beautifully in their descriptions of America. вЂњMy Country, вЂ™Tis of TheeвЂќ rings out: вЂњSweet land of liberty.вЂќ вЂњLand where my fathers died, land of the PilgrimвЂ™s pride... Let Freedom Ring!вЂќ And there is no more moving song than вЂњAmerica, The Beautiful.вЂќ How can anyone, especially our president, hear these stirring words and not have a feeling not only of pride, but one of true love and nurture for our land, as most of us who were born on this soil do? A LOCAL VOICE Time to be firm on littering our home Not long ago I took an overnight float on one was foam containers, glass and aluminum cans of my favorite sections of the James River. вЂ” with the clear winner in volume being our Once a yearly rite for me and my school friend the plastic water bottle. Driving to my office the other day I chums back in the вЂ™90s, I experienced noticed the exact same varieties of the section between Hootentown and assorted detritus alongside the road Galena for the first time in 15 years. at the South Glenstone Avenue and Most of the river lay exactly how I East Republic Road intersection. remember: the long gravel bars for Now, it doesnвЂ™t take a rocket surgeon camping, deep holes for fishing and to make the connection as to why the silver bluffs poking out among the same kind of trash that ends up alongtrees above the riverвЂ™s edge. But one side our highways makes a later unfortunate similarity on the river appearance on the river. The question between past and present has seemRyan is, what can we do about it? ingly multiplied: The amount of trash. OвЂ™REILLY In addition to organized awareness IвЂ™ll make allowance that a good chunk and cleanup attempts, I would enof the debris stuck high in the trees is flood related. There are choke points along courage everyone who takes a float trip any rivers; places where logs, brush and trash snag time to bring an extra trash bag and fill it and pile up. One such point I saw, near the old with what you find on the river. I filled two McCall Bridge, was a mound about 20 feet high contractor bags on my last outing, but thereвЂ™s and 50 yards long. Though there were some plenty more. Think of it as a voluntary price pieces of sheet metal, insulation, plastic sheet- of admission to some of the best floating ing and other building components among the country in our part of the world. But cleaning up the river is only half the driftwood, the majority of the collected refuse solution. ItвЂ™s difficult for me to think there are people out there who throw trash on the ground, but it happens. A lot. And we must do something. One solution would be if you see someone throwing trash out of their car, give the horn a honk to get your point across and take note of the license plate. At an appropriate time and place, call law enforcement and report them. There are alternative solutions, IвЂ™m sure, but we have to start demanding that our fellow citizens respect the law and the beauty of our home. Litter along the highway wonвЂ™t just sit there waiting to be picked up. One strong rain sends it all down the river. If we value our natural heritage in the Ozarks, which surely we must, then we have to agree to keep it clean. All you would need to do is see the piles of trash along the banks of the James, and youвЂ™d agree. Ryan OвЂ™Reilly is a published author, entrepreneur and part-time apple farmer living in Clever.

Long-term exposure to TCE at elevated levels is suspected of causing cancer, as well as liver problems and weakening of the immune system, according to the EPA.

On Friday, the male staff members at Twain will wear red dresses to accept the check on behalf of the American Heart Association during the lunch hour. Twain is located at 2352 S. Weaver Road. The Twain Trail Runners, a student running club, organized the event. The club is sponsored by the Hamels Foundation; an organization that takes a community-based approach to education by providing assistance to inner-city schools as well as supporting other education based non-profit entities in the United States. Student runners participated to raise money and awareness for cardiovascular disease research and related public and professional education programs. The American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance were co-sponsors of the event. The annual telethon for the ChildrenвЂ™s Miracle Network Hospitals will be held June 4-5. The telethon will air live on KYTV from 10:30 p.m. to midnight June 4 and 8 a.m.5 p.m. June 5. The live broadcast from Cox South hospital in Springfield will feature the stories of local children who have been helped by the charity. Last year, the telethon raised about $1.4 million. ChildrenвЂ™s Miracle Network Hospitals of CoxHealth has financially supported sick and injured OzarksвЂ™ children and their families for more than 25 years by helping with medically related travel expenses, medical equipment purchases and much more.

Soon, father and son were on the road to visit ScottвЂ™s parents in southern Illinois. It was the last time Laura would see her husband of seven years. That weekend, while changing clothes in a bedroom of his parentsвЂ™ house, Scott suffered a massive heart attack. In an instant, he was gone, leaving his little boy fatherless and his wife a widow. Last May, Laura and John, now 9, remembered Scott together when they wrote his name on an environment-friendly balloon and released it skyward as part of a memorial event planned by the Lost & Found Grief Center, a support facility for children where Laura and John attend. They plan to release another memorial balloon on Thursday when Lost & Found hosts its 2011 community event. WANT TO GO?

You are part nurturer and part mediator, using your communication skills to acknowledge each person, as well as to nudge them toward maximum productivity. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You demand a lot. Then again, you are willing to do whatever you ask others to do. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If youвЂ™re afraid to talk about something, thereвЂ™s a good reason. Exhume it. Get it out now and be free of it. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20). You see how each personвЂ™s contribution is vitally important to an organizationвЂ™s success. Share your observations.

ItвЂ™s me or nobody.вЂќ Grief suppressed What Laura didnвЂ™t realize is that children donвЂ™t show grief like adults do. Nor that JohnвЂ™s grief, unexpressed, would seep into new areas of his life as he grew. ThatвЂ™s common, says counselor Karen Scott, executive director and cofounder of Lost & Found. вЂњChildren grieve very differently than adults,вЂќ she says. вЂњThey grieve in spurts because children have short attention spans. And they will act as if everything is OK as long as they possibly can. ThatвЂ™s their way of attempting to gain a normalcy in their lives.вЂќ They also hide grief to spare their hurting parents, she says. But that becomes problematic because they bury it. вЂњAnd it comes out another way.вЂќ ThatвЂ™s what happened with John, Laura says. After he started school, behavior problems emerged. Laura realized her son needed grief counseling but she didnвЂ™t know where to turn. Then someone told her about Lost & Found and theyвЂ™ve attended support groups for nearly two years. ItвЂ™s made a big difference for John, who has opened up about his father and can talk about his memories вЂ” and his death, Laura says. Helping kids cope Twice a month, Laura and John trek from Nixa to southeast Springfield where the Lost & Found center is located in an old converted two-story house. Parents go upstairs for a support session while kids follow adult leaders into what looks like a two-room play area. Books and stuffed toys live in tall shelves along one wall, big pillows and bean bag chairs line another. A puppet theater and dress-up box are in one corner. The adjacent space, labeled the вЂњTornado Room,вЂќ is home to two punching bags and a giant stuffed gorilla. On one wall between them hangs a large laminated вЂњgrief mapвЂќ which resembles a Candyland board game. This is no ordinary play room. Kids and adults sit in a circle while ChildrenвЂ™s Coordinator Liz Viele goes over group rules. Among them: Members speak when holding the soft вЂњtalking stick.вЂќ Nothing said in group leaves the room. ItвЂ™s OK to throw soft toys and pillows but nothing else. вЂњAnd if you donвЂ™t want to talk, what do you say?вЂќ she asks. вЂњI pass,вЂќ one youngster answers. The talking stick starts around the circle as members вЂ” including adults вЂ” say their name, their age, who died and how they died. tonight, or have an adult tell Soon Viele produces the her?вЂќ вЂњAn adult,вЂќ he says. grief map, which includes Putting their feelings into such places as the Land of the Lost, the Land of New words is important, Scott Beginnings and the Land of says. вЂњWe teach them ways Changes and Challenges, to commemorate the life of the love one that is gone.вЂќ among other places.

That is some long-term gardening, but it is very, very rewarding. Fresh young asparagus picked on a cool morning is about the best thing to ever add a crunch to a salad. There are other things you can do as well. For fatter spears, simple roasting at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes will produce something delightful. Just give them a roll halfway through or spread them on racks. Trim a pound of thick spears and toss with salt, pepper, garlic and olive oil, then spread in a single layer Weather LOCAL FORECAST Today 6 a.m. on a cooking sheet or glass baking dish. I go with a tablespoon of good olive oil, lots of minced garlic and plenty of pepper. After the short trip in the hot oven, hit this dish with a shot of lemon juice or a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, and maybe a touch of butter, then nom, nom, nom. Last year, Laura and John Klotz and hundreds of other families released 2,000 environment-friendly blue and orange balloons in memory of someone who had died. The memorial event was sponsored by Lost & Found, a grief center for children and their parents. вЂњWe did it in recognition of the fact that the community doesnвЂ™t have a family-oriented memorial activity,вЂќ says Executive Director Karen Scott. вЂњIt brought together a community of people who are grieving the death of someone. It was beautiful.вЂќ Not only does it provide an uplifting way to remember family members who have died, it helps raise funds for the center. This year the event is Thursday in Jordan Valley Park and includes a 5K run/walk. It will also help celebrate Lost & FoundвЂ™s 10th anniversary. вЂњWe decided that was very fitting. WeвЂ™ll be inviting all of our past families and past volunteers and board members.вЂќ about Lost & Found quickly. His kids go to Jeffries Elementary where Viele works as a counselor. He and his children вЂ” Avery, 5, and Dien, 7 вЂ” started going to the center two weeks after his wife died. вЂњThe kids need to talk to someone other than me and family, someone they feel comfortable with,вЂќ Rob says. вЂњI wanted to get into it right away so they could be around other kids, so they donвЂ™t think they are alone.вЂќ ItвЂ™s made a difference in their lives already, he says. вЂњI see a definite change. That they can heal and be able to talk about Crystal instead of not being able to talk about her at all.вЂќ His daughter still wonвЂ™t talk about the accident, though. вЂњWhat they went through is horrific. I canвЂ™t even fathom that,вЂќ he says. It also helps to be around parents like Laura who have already experienced what heвЂ™s going through now. вЂњItвЂ™s nice to know if you have a question about what you are going through, people have already gone through it,вЂќ Rob says. For the Gentrys, for Laura and her son and the other families, the center is a place to find comfort as they learn to live with a new reality. вЂњYou just take it one step at a time. They give you the strength to be able to do that,вЂќ Rob says. Laura wishes sheвЂ™d known about Lost & Found sooner. вЂњJohn gets so excited about going. He still gets sad about his father but he always wants to go,вЂќ Laura says. вЂњAnd IвЂ™m thankful. If it makes him happy, we will be going for as long as he wants to.вЂќ above. Blend the roasted veggies with chicken stock, probably in stages depending on how much you have made. Warm in a saucepan. What you have is a small pot of distilled spring, the divine essence of green. Add a spoon of gremolata of minced garlic, tarragon, parsley and lemon zest for the classic soup or get creative. Sour cream, yogurt, a dash of Parmesan are all things this soup will enjoy and you will, too. Play with your food. It is almost as good for you as a spear of springtime asparagus.

Tuesday, May 24, 2011 3D NEWS -LEADER вЂў News-Leader.com Mavericks rally to stun Oklahoma City Dallas trailed by 15 with five minutes left. De Silvestro counts blessings after crash 22-year-old will race at Indy 500 despite severe burns on her hands. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS вЂ” Simona de Sil- By Jeff Latzke THE ASSOCIATED PRESS OKLAHOMA CITY вЂ” Trailing by 15 points with only 5 minutes to play in one of the NBAвЂ™s rowdiest arenas, the Dallas Mavericks were just wishing and hoping for the best. Dirk Nowitzki NBA and Jason Kidd PLAYOFFS delivered, and the Mavs suddenly find themselves only one win away from the NBA finals. Nowitzki scored 40 points, Kidd hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 40 seconds left in overtime and the Mavericks staged an improbable rally to stun the Oklahoma City Thunder 112-105 on Monday night and take a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference finals. вЂњYouвЂ™re lying if youвЂ™re not surprised. Down 15 with 5 minutes to play youвЂ™re thinking hopefully something can happen,вЂќ Dallas center Brendan Haywood said. вЂњYouвЂ™re just kind of wishing.вЂќ Dallas didnвЂ™t lead until Nowitzki hit two free throws 16 seconds into overtime, needing to rally from a 99-84 deficit in the final 5 minutes of regulation. The Mavericks never let the Thunder вЂ” who were one win shy of tying an NBA record with eight OT wins in the regular season вЂ” go ahead in the extra period. вЂњThereвЂ™s times and situations where they are going to test the courage and the mental inner strength of your team,вЂќ said Jason Terry, who scored 20 for Dallas. вЂњThis was one of those times.вЂќ Kevin Durant missed a 3-pointer on Oklahoma CityвЂ™s opening ERIC GAY / THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Oklahoma City forward Nick Collison (4) attempts to score as Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki defends in the first half of MondayвЂ™s game. possession of overtime then didnвЂ™t get another shot until he missed a 3 off the front rim in the final 10 seconds with the Thunder down by five. Durant finished with 29 points and 15 rebounds, and Serge Ibaka had 18 points and 10 boards for Oklahoma City. The Thunder suffered their first consecutive losses of the postseason and first back-toback home losses in six months. В» Playoff glance, 4D vestroвЂ™s hands are wrapped in thick gauze and tape from her wrists to fingertips, protecting the raw tissue beneath from exposure as it heals from the burns caused by a horrific crash during practice for the Indianapolis 500. She jokingly called them her вЂњMickey MouseвЂќ gloves and is planning to wear a much more streamlined version Sunday under her protective driving gloves. This is Indy. As long as she can grip the wheel, the 22-year-old Swiss driver plans to be racing at The Brickyard. вЂњIвЂ™m going to try. You never know,вЂќ de Silvestro said. вЂњSometimes, itвЂ™s too risky. But IвЂ™m going to try as much as I can to stay out there.вЂќ De Silvestro is actually thankful her hands, which are healing from second- and some thirddegree burns, were the only casualty in the crash that could have easily killed her Thursday. The car slammed into a wall, flew off the track and flipped several times before coming to a stop upside down and in flames. Smoke billowed from the wreckage as her crew worked to turn it over and get her out. The burning fuel was hot enough to get through her protective gloves, but that was the only physical damage on de Silvestro. вЂњJust coming out with a couple burns, I think itвЂ™s not so bad,вЂќ she said. вЂњI usually close my eyes when I crash. I thought it was over and all of a sudden I open my eyes and IвЂ™m flying off again. You just hope itвЂ™s over as soon as possible, and then you just try to get out of it. I was lucky that I didnвЂ™t pass out or anything.вЂќ Mentally, she was rattled and remained so until she got into her INDIANAPOLIS 500 When: 11 a.m. Sunday Where: Indianapolis Motor Speedway Pole-sitter: Alex Tagliani TV: ABC backup car on Saturday. After a few tentative laps, she had enough confidence to go for it and ended up qualifying 24th. вЂњSheвЂ™s my hero,вЂќ said Tony Kanaan, who is No. 23 in SundayвЂ™s lineup for the 100th anniversary race. вЂњWhat a great spirit that she has.

The circuit will race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in August for the first time since 1998. Each driver was presented with a large, freshly cooked lobster, which de Silvestro nibbled on, picking off tiny pieces with the very ends of her fingers while trying to keep her hand dressing from getting soaked with butter. The bandages are changed twice a day as doctors see how the burned flesh is recovering. On Sunday, she had layers of dead skin removed, exposing the raw underlayers and causing another round of pain. вЂњThey just kind of peel it off. It looks like in the movies after,вЂќ she said. вЂњItвЂ™s pretty disgusting.вЂќ De Silvestro said she also burned her hands last summer in a crash at Texas, although not nearly as severely.

By Jimmy Golen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON вЂ” Tim Thomas stopped NHL PLAYOFFS after the final whistle. Thomas bounced back after allowing four straight goals in Game 4 and may have saved the season when he stopped Steve Downie with about 11 minutes left, reaching out to put his stick in front of the open net and protect a 2-1 lead. Two nights after Tampa Bay rallied with five straight goals to overcome a 3-0 deficit and win Game 4, Boston shrugged off Simon GagneвЂ™s goal just 69 seconds in and staged a comeback of its own. Gagne, who scored the winner in Game 4, converted a 2-on-1 with Steve Stamkos to beat defenseman Johnny Boychuk and put the puck past Thomas. Horton tied it on a one-timer from Milan Lucic 4:24 into the second period вЂ” just BostonвЂ™s seventh shot. Marchand also took a penalty in the second, then came back to score. After Zdeno Chara kept the puck in the zone, Patrice Bergeron went to the faceoff circle to retrieve it, then passed it over to Marchand for an easy chip-in past Smith. 33 shots after allowing another early goal, and Brad Marchand scored the game-winner to lead Boston to a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night and put the Bruins one win away from the Stanley Cup finals. The victory gave Boston a 3-2 lead in the best-of-7 Eastern Conference finals, with a chance to clinch Wednesday night in Tampa Bay. Nathan Horton scored to tie it in the second period, 17 seconds after returning from the penalty box. Marchand scored with 4:04 left in the period to give Boston a 2-1 lead. Boston managed just 19 shots on Mike Smith as he made his first career playoff start in place of Dwayne Roloson. Tampa Bay finally managed to pull the goalie with 42 seconds left, but Rich Peverley scored an empty-netter with 12.1 seconds left to clinch it. The Lightning left the extra skater on the bench for the ensuing faceoff, but they couldnвЂ™t come through with any- В» Playoff glance, 4D thing more than some shoving Lead-Off/Lewallen, Reed honored Continued from Page 1D with a 1.48 earned run average. He walked only 15 batters. Josh Lewallen of Hillcrest was named defensive player of the year. An outfielder, the senior had a .960 fielding percentage and four assists. He also batted .389. Payton Reed of Kickapoo was named offensive player of the year. Reed batted .455 with eight home runs and 40 RBIs.

He hit .485 with 18 homers and 92 RBIs last year in leading Iowa Western to the national championship. вЂњHe has a great idea of the strike zone,вЂќ said MSU pitcher Dan Kickham, who played for Crowder College against Iowa Western last year at the Juco World Series. вЂњYou could tell right away that heвЂ™s a tough out.вЂќ Nearly as endearing to Guttin as on-field production is SeifertвЂ™s personality.

Cards/La Russa ejected in eighth Continued from Page 1D pitch at the knees, then turned and jumped in frustration after Joyce punched him out. La Russa came out to get the slugger and as he turned toward the dugout, said something to Joyce and was ejected. It was La RussaвЂ™s eighth game back since missing six games to be treated for shingles. The Padres pitched to Pujols with first base open after Jon Jay hit a one-out double. Padres pinch-hitter Jorge Cantu hit a sacrifice fly to tie the game at 1 in the seventh. San Diego had runners on first and third and no outs after Chase Headley hit a leadoff double and advanced on Cameron MaybinвЂ™s bunt for a single. Orlando Hudson grounded to Pujols, who threw home to catch Headley in a rundown, which moved Maybin to third. The Cardinals broke through against Bell (2-1) in the ninth. Skip Schumaker hit a one-out double to right and scored on Daniel DescalsoвЂ™s single to medium right. Chris DenorfiaвЂ™s throw was up the first-base line. Ryan Theriot hit a two-out single to bring in Descalso. Kyle Lohse (6-2) held the Padres to one run and five hits in eight innings, struck out five and walked one. Fernando Salas got the final two outs for his eighth save in as many chances. Moseley allowed one run and five hits in seven innings, struck out three and walked three. The loss came hours after the light-hitting Padres shook up their lineup by demoting leadoff batter Will Venable to Triple-A. Denorfia moved into VenableвЂ™s starting spot in RF. To take his spot on the 25-man roster, the Padres purchased the contract of Blake Tekotte from Double-A. В» Box score, 2D Cycling/Legal action against Hamilton possible Continued from Page 1D by a cyclist who has not hesitated to abuse the trust of all followers of cycling on several occasions in the past,вЂќ the statement said. Hamilton, who admitted to вЂњ60 MinutesвЂќ that he doped during his career, twice tested positive for banned substances. вЂњAt no time did he see fit to inform the UCI of the events he claims to have witnessed 10 years ago, and which he is now using in his attempt to harm the UCI,вЂќ the cycling body said. вЂњThe UCI can only confirm that Lance Armstrong has never been notified of a positive test result by any anti-doping laboratory.вЂќ The UCI said it reserves the right to take legal action against Hamilton. CBSвЂ™ вЂњ60 MinutesвЂќ also reported that UCI officials helped arrange a meeting involving Armstrong and the World AntiDoping Agency-accredited laboratory at Lausanne, which tested the Swiss race samples. The UCI and its former president Hein Verbruggen, whose 14year spell in office ended in 2005, denied such a meeting took place. Verbruggen told The Associated Press that ArmstrongвЂ™s doping controls had never been hidden. вЂњThere has never, ever been a cover-up. Not in the Tour de Suisse, not in the Tour de France,вЂќ the Dutch official said. вЂњI donвЂ™t know anything about suspicious tests. I was not aware of that.вЂќ The UCI has previously said the 2001 Swiss race was clear of dop- ing and denied suggestions that Armstrong gave it money for covering up a failed test. Armstrong donated $25,000 in 2002 for the Swiss-based organizationвЂ™s anti-doping program and $100,000 in 2005 for the purchase of a Sysmex machine used for analyzing blood. Tour de Suisse spokesman Rolf Huser told the AP that organizers knew nothing about the race test results, which are conducted by cycling federations and anti-doping agencies. вЂњWe are never in the loop about doping controls. We have to be neutral,вЂќ Huser said. вЂњWe canвЂ™t say anything about these rumors from 2001. We had the (race) results and everything was OK.вЂќ The Tour de Suisse allegations are similar to those made by Floyd Landis, who had his 2006 Tour de France title stripped for doping. After years of denying he cheated, Landis came out last year acknowledging he used PEDs and alleged Armstrong did, as well. 4D Tuesday, May 24, 2011 вЂў SCOREBOARD TV/RADIO Djokovic extends winning streak TODAY Win at French puts him at 38-0 in 2011.

He was introduced by longtime rival Richard Petty and inducted by car owner Leonard Wood, who called Pearson вЂњthe greatest driver in the history of NASCAR.вЂќ Pearson was inducted along with 84-race winner Bobby Allison, Petty Enterprises patriarch and threetime Cup champion Lee Petty, Bud Moore, a decorated World War II veteran and two-time Cup championship team owner, and two-time champion and noted broadcaster Ned Jarrett.
