WORLD CUP

IS GERMANY’S
W
ith two quick, deft touches, Mario Goetze ended Germany’s 24-year
wait for another World Cup title with an extra-time winner against Ar-
gentina on Sunday — denying Lionel Messi the one title he needs to
forever take his place among the game’s all-time greats. Goetze’s moment of bril-
liance ensured Germany’s 1-0 victory in a tight and tense final in Brazil.

UNION BEACH— Chris Curtis Sr. was sleeping in a re-
cliner inside his Stone Road home when a thud woke
him before midnight Saturday.
His 51-year-old son, Paul, lived with him and suf-
fered from grand mal seizures. Curtis Sr. assumed his
son had fallen from another attack. But when 81-year-
old Curtis Sr. went to check on his son, he saw an orange
glow coming through the curtains.
Outside, a backyard shed was engulfed in 20-foot
flames, and Curtis Sr. found his son lying on his back in
the yard. That’s where he said his son died, hands held
up before him to ward off the flames.
“I don’t know if he went in there (the shed) with a
cigarette,” Curtis Sr. said.

Edíbar Pérez just wants to live in peace, which
sounds like the tired lament of a broken-down man, not
the overly optimistic hope of a 16-year-old Guatemalan.
In May, he swept through the pipeline from Central
America and landed in Phoenix, one of nearly 57,000un-
accompanied minors who were either apprehended by
or surrendered to the Border Patrol since October.
Most of them are from Honduras, El Salvador, and
Guatemala. Like Edíbar, they are coming to be with
