LIMA — President Barack Obamabrought his vision for the next four yearsto West Central Ohio on Friday. Obamaplans to give every young Americana shot at a good education by hiringmore teachers to help grow the economyand cut the growth of tuition in half over the next 10 years. By recruiting100,000 math and science teachers sokids don’t fall behind the rest of theworld plus training 2 million Americansat community colleges with the skillsthat businesses are looking for right now,he believes the strategies will grow aneconomy, with the end result of creating jobs. He is convinced that through edu-cation, the United States will have thebest workers in the world and will attractmore companies.Change is the very thing he is fight-ing for in this election.“Change comes when we live upto this country’s legacy of innovation.We’re not just building cars again; we’rebuilding better cars,” Obama solidifiedhis perspective. “They’re smarter, moredurable and these are cars that by themiddle of the next decade will go twiceas far on a gallon of gas which, by theway, saves you money but it also makesus more energy-independent. That’sgood for our national security; it’s goodfor our environment.”Obama’s idea is not to subsidize oilcompany profits when they are makingmoney hand over fist. He wants to sup-port the energy jobs of tomorrow and cutoil imports in half — bring these jobsback to America.“I want to reward companies thatcreate the next generation of manufac-turing here in America, making prod-ucts stamped with the words: Made inAmerica — with American workers.That’s what we’re fighting for. That’sthe future I see for this country,” hesaid.Obama’s campaign stop at LimaSenior High School Friday afternoonmarked the first sitting Democrat presi-dent to do so since Harry Truman in1948. A crowd of 3,800 supporters stoodin line for hours and braved the cold andwindy weather to hear him speak on jobcreation, rescuing the flailing auto indus-try and championing for the people.“Now, Ohio, in four days, you’ve gota choice to make — it’s not just a choicebetween two candidates or two parties.It’s a choice about two different visionsfor America. It’s a choice between areturn to the top-down economic policiesthat almost crashed our economy or afuture that’s built on a strong and grow-ing middle class,” he said.Obama directed his attention to the“folks” at the very top in the country,who don’t need another champion inWashington and always have a “seat atthe table,” access and influence. He saidhe believes the people who really needa champion are the Americans whoseletters he reads late at night; the men andwomen he meets on the campaign trailevery day; the laid-off furniture workerwho’s retraining at the age of 55 for anew career at a community college.“Lobbyists in Washington will neverbe working for them. They need a presi-dent who is working for them. Theyneed a president who is fighting forthem.” Obama declared. “I ran becausethe voices of the American people —your voices — had been shut out of ourdemocracy for way too long by lobbyistsand special interests, by politicians whowill do whatever it takes and say what-ever it takes to keep things just the waythey are — protectors of the status quo.And over the last four years, the statusquo in Washington has fought us everystep of the way.”Ex-Govenor Ted Strickland attendedthe rally and spoke prior to Obama tak-ing the podium.A handful of protestors holding signsquestioning Obama’s treatment of theSyrian consulate attack took to the streetacross from the high school.

Boseila improving on fourth language
BY STACY TAFFstaff@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — Travelingand studying foreign lan-guages is not a new thing for16-year-old visiting Germanstudent Jonas Boseila, Hisdecision to come to theUnited States was centeredaround language as well ascultural curiosity.“I wanted to improve myEnglish. My pronunciationwasn’t so good,” Boseila said.“English is the world’s lan-guage and you need it for most jobs. I also wanted to see theAmerican culture and people.”In addition to Germanand English, Boseila can alsospeak French and Arabic.“I learned how to speakFrench when I was in Italy,”he said. “I know Arabicbecause I was born in Egyptand lived there until I was10 with my mother and myyounger sister Sarah. Mymother is German and myfather is Egyptian. My fatheris a doctor and he was liv-ing in Germany because hecould make more moneythere. When I was 10, wemoved to Germany to livewith him. My mother usedto be a nurse but now sheworks in a private practice assomeone who takes calls andmy father is head of thoracicsurgery in the city hospital.”During his time here inDelphos, Boseila has beenenjoying himself.“I visited Niagara Fallswith my host family. It wasvery beautiful,” he said. “Wealso went to Amish Country,which was interesting. Wehad a lot of fun there, too.I like the mall in Lima. Wewent to Cedar Point, too, andthere’s the Chicago trip thismonth with all of the otherexchange students.”Even arriving in theUnited States was excitingfor Boseila.“Our flight fromWashington to Detroit wascanceled for some reason,I’m not sure why,” he said.“We had to stay the night in ahotel, which was great. It wasactually a lot of fun because itwas Washington, D.C.”Back in Germany, thereare no school teams forsports but Boseila has a soc-cer team he plays with regu-larly.“I miss my soccer team.I just miss getting to playwith them,” he said. “Theystill invite me to things onFacebook and I have to get onthere and tell them no, I can’tcome because I’m not there.I get to play soccer here, too.I practice with Dominik, oneof the other exchange stu-dents. I’ve also been liftingwith one of the girl exchangestudents, Alicia.”
Songs offer messages of hope at Sandy benefit show
By HILLEL ITALIEThe Associated Press
NEW YORK — From“Livin’ on a Prayer” to “TheLiving Proof,” every songFriday at NBC’s benefit con-cert for superstorm Sandyvictims became a messagesong.New Jersey’s Jon BonJovi gave extra meaning to“Who Says You Can’t GoHome.” Billy Joel worked ina reference to Staten Island,the decimated New YorkCity borough. The hourlongevent, hosted by Matt Lauer,was heavy on stars and lyricsidentified with New Jerseyand the New York metro-politan area, which took thebrunt of this week’s deadlystorm. The telethon was amix of music, storm foot-age and calls for donationsfrom Jon Stewart, Tina Fey,Whoopi Goldberg and oth-ers.The mood was somberbut hopeful, from ChristinaAguilera’s “Beautiful” toBon Jovi’s “Livin’ on aPrayer” and a tearful MaryJ. Blige’s “The LivingProof,” her ballad of resil-ience with the timely declara-tion that “the worst is over/Ican start living now.” Joelrocked out with “Miami 2017(Seen the Lights Go Out onBroadway),” a song bornfrom crisis, New York City’snear bankruptcy in the 1970s,while Jimmy Fallon endureda faulty microphone andgamely led an all-star perfor-mance of the Drifters’ “Underthe Boardwalk” that featuredJoel, Bruce Springsteen andSteven Tyler. The Aerosmithfrontman then sat behind apiano and gave his all on astrained but deeply emotion-al “Dream On.” Sting wasequally passionate during anacoustic, muscular version of The Police hit “Message Ina Bottle” and its promise to“send an SOS to the world.”The show ended, as itonly could, with Springsteenand the E Street Band, tear-ing into “Land Of Hope andDreams.”“God bless New York,”Springsteen, New Jersey’sageless native son, said inconclusion. “God bless theJersey shore.”The stable of NBCUniversal networks, includ-ing USA, CNBC, MSNBC, E!Entertainment, The WeatherChannel and Bravo, aired theconcert live from the NBCstudios in Rockefeller Centerin midtown Manhattan, sev-eral blocks north of wherethe city went days withoutpower.NBC Universal invitedother networks to televisethe event, but not everyonesigned on.That might have some-thing to do with networkrivalries.Others declined to tele-vise Friday’s telethon, eventhough ABC parent WaltDisney Co. said it woulddonate $2 million to theAmerican Red Cross andvarious ABC shows will pro-mote a “Day of Giving” onMonday. The CBS Corp.,Viacom Inc., parent of “JerseyShore” network MTV, Foxnetwork owner News Corp.also announced big donationsto the Red Cross.

If you’ve been on Facebook the last cou-ple of days, you’ve seen the posts of whatpeople are thankful for. During the month of November, you are supposed to say somethingyou are thankful for each day, not just onThanksgiving. I’m three days behind so I betterget busy and catch up.Day 1: I am thankful for my wonderful hus-band. He drives me mad, makes me laugh, makesme smile and makes it worth coming home everyday after work. We are enjoying each other’scompany and working on some small improve-ments around the house. It feels good.Days 2: I am thankful for the rest of myfamily from the top on down to the little guy,Ringo.Day 3: I am thankful for all I have. Watchingthe footage of the horrible destruction of Superstorm Sandy really makes you take stockof what you have and what you may think youneed but don’t. It’s heart-wrenching to considerthe families of those who have died and thosewho have no homes to go back to once thingsget back on track. We never truly appreciatewhat we have until we realize how much wehave compared to others.Day 4: (Yeah, I know I’m jumping aheadbut I want to make sure I get this all in.) I amthankful the fall season is upon us. Aaaaah.The crispness of the morning air. The crunchof leaves underfoot.The only problem is now comes the pre-winter cleanup. The bushes need trimmedor the Christmas lights will look funny. Theflower beds need weeded and everything cutback. Who knows, with the weird weatherwe’ve been having, we might have to mow onemore time.I can’t believe it’s less than three weeksuntil Thanksgiving already. The pies and tur-key in the freezer is a big hint. I’ve alreadydoled out everyone else’s goodies they need tobring so the food is pretty much covered. NowI just have to work in a little cleaning (OK, a lotof cleaning) between now and then.Back to fall and how much I love this timeof year. I truly enjoy the first morning whenyou can walk outside and see your breath. Thatlittle cloud of moisture hanging in the air infront of me is awesome.We had our first snowfall early this week.There’s an old wive’s tale we chat about on thesecond floor of The Herald building. The taleindicated that whatever date the first measur-able snowfall of the year falls on, that is howmany measurable snowfalls we will have thatwinter. Uh-oh. I believe is was Oct. 30. Thatmeans 30 measurable snowfalls this year.I sure am glad it’s just an old wive’s tale.Whew. No one needs 30 snowfalls but I amthankful it was only a quarter-inch. I am in noway shape or form ready to shovel the whitestuff or wear boots and all that garb yet. I’mthankful that was just a fleeting meet-and-greetwith snow. (I know. That one doesn’t count.)Try it for the month and see what all you’rethankful for. You don’t have to log on toFacebook to make a list. It’s just as good if it’ssitting on the counter or the table. It just mattersthat you’ve thought about it and perhaps shareda few with someone else.

Boseila said back home,he meets his friends to hearmusic in the city, go to thecinema and play basketball,soccer or tennis for fun. Herein the United States, he’s ableto do some of the same thingsand add some new recreation-al activities, as well.“I like to watch the foot-ball games. I don’t really likethe rain and the cold but thegames are a lot of fun,” hesaid. “I also got a chanceto play golf and that wasvery fun, I would do it again.We’ve been to the theater tosee The Bourne Legacy andDark Knight Rises. I alsoreally enjoy the televisionshow Necessary Roughness,the one with the footballplayer.”Boseila says school iswhere he notices the mostdifferences between the twocountries.“Here at St. John’s, theperiods are right after another.In Germany we have breaksin between. Also, we don’thave uniforms back home. InGermany, my favorite classis gym but here you only get30 minutes and by the timeyou’ve warmed up you don’treally have time to do any-thing,” he said. “My favor-ite subject here is biologybut only because I like theteacher.”Boseila’s host parents Annand James Benfield make himfeel comfortable and at home,which helps with homesick-ness.“I miss my friends andfamily of course, but I getto Skype with them. I’mvery busy, though, so I don’tworry about it. Plus I have anice family here now and myhost parents tease me, too,so they’re like real parents,”he said. “I’ve made a lot of friends. I go to school withDominik back in Germanyand I’ve become good friendswith the girl exchange stu-dents here. My host parentshave a grown daughter whohas a son that I hang out witha lot, too.”When he graduates,Boseila says he would enjoycoming back to America.“I would like to maybecome back to go to collegeand play soccer,” he said. “Ihave a friend at home whowould like to come with me.I think every kid in Germanywould enjoy coming here atleast once. We really like fastfood but we don’t eat a lotof it. I like the clothes bet-ter here too. It’s been veryinteresting and I think it’sbeen a good experience forme. People here are so niceand helpful. In Germany, noteveryone will say, ‘Hello,how are you?’ when you’rewalking down the street butthey do here. It’s nice.”Boseila and the otherGerman students will returnhome on December 8.
US officials counter reportson Benghazi attacks
By LOLITA C. BALDORThe Associated Press
WASHINGTON — ThePentagon provided moredetails Friday of the militaryresponse to the assault on theU.S. Consulate in Benghazi,Libya, as questions continueto swirl ahead of the presiden-tial election about the govern-ment’s response to the attack,detailing the troops that weredispatched to the region, eventhough most arrived after thefighting was over.Although two teams of special operations forces weredeployed from central Europeand the United States, theattack, which began after 9 p.m.local time and ended by about6 a.m., was over before theyarrived at Sigonella Naval AirStation in Sicily, Italy, acrossthe Mediterranean from Libya.Pentagon press secretaryGeorge Little said that after theattack began, Defense SecretaryLeon Panetta quickly met withhis senior military advisers,including the top U.S. com-mander for Africa Commandwho was in Washington formeetings. Little said that withina few hours Panetta had orderedunits to move to Libya.“The entire U.S. govern-ment was operating from acold start,” Little said.He said the military unitswere prepared to respond toany number of contingencies,including a potential hostagesituation.The military also imme-diately moved an unarmedPredator surveillance drone toBenghazi airspace to providereal-time intelligence on thesituation for the CIA officerson the ground who were fight-ing the militants.The Pentagon commentscame a day after senior U.S.intelligence officials detailedthe CIA’s rescue efforts, strik-ing back at allegations theyfailed to respond quickly orefficiently against the dead-ly attack, which killed U.S.Ambassador Chris Stevens andthree other Americans.Two of those Americanswere ex-Navy SEALs TyroneWoods and Glenn Doherty,who initially were identifiedpublicly as State Departmentcontractors. But on Thursday,the intelligence officials saidthey were CIA contractors.Previously the agency hadasked The Associated Pressand other news organizationsto avoid linking the men tothe CIA because the officialsclaimed that doing so wouldendanger the lives of othersecurity contractors workingfor other agencies around theworld.U.S. officials are using thedetails to rebut some newsreports that said the CIA toldits personnel to “stand down”rather than go to the consulateto help repel the attackers. FoxNews reported that when CIAofficers at the annex calledhigher-ups to tell them the con-sulate was under fire, they weretwice told to “stand down.”The CIA publicly denied thereport, laying out a timelinethat showed CIA security offi-cers left their annex and headedto the consulate less than 25minutes after receiving the firstcall for help.
