BY MONICA GERDEMANStaff WriterPutnam Sentinel
PUTNAM COUNTY —For many couples, the nextstep after marriage is havinga baby. The happiness of thatlittle bundle of joy is pricelessbut there are a few things toknow regarding funds whenthey expect to be expecting.From the day parents beginto try having a baby, theirdoctor may ask the motherto begin supplements or vita-mins based on her health orthe health of the baby. Forexample, many doctors rec-ommend an iron supplementto help fight anemia and withiron, a mother may considera Vitamin C tablet to helptheir body absorb the iron. Asthe list of supplements grows,this can be an additional costmany parents may not havethought about. An iron tableton average can cost between$5 to $15 for over-the-coun-ter options.The first doctor’s appoint-ment can be nerve-rackingand maybe a little scary, but if parents are not insured, it canbe a frightening financiallyas well. Diagnostic testing,such as an ultrasound, as wellas the first appointment, onaverage cost about $2,000 outof pocket. This is why it isimportant for parents to seeif they are insured and whatexpenses the insurance willcover.Greg Brown withNationwide Insurance inOttawa advised, “Make sureyou know the right questionsto ask your insurance com-pany before you plan to getpregnant. Some health insur-ance plans will cover thepregnancy and delivery butothers do not, and it’s reallysomething you should ask.”Then comes the baby

Healthier schools: Goodbyecandy and greasy snacks
Goodbye candy bars andsugary cookies. Hello bakedchips and diet sodas.The government for thefirst time is proposing broadnew standards to make sureall foods sold in schools aremore healthful, a change thatwould ban the sale of almostall candy, high-calorie sportsdrinks and greasy foods oncampus.Under new rules theDepartment of Agricultureproposed Friday, school vend-ing machines would start sell-ing water, lower-calorie sportsdrinks, diet sodas and bakedchips instead. Lunchroomsthat now sell fatty “a la carte”items like mozzarella sticksand nachos would have toswitch to healthier pizzas,low-fat hamburgers, fruitcups and yogurt.The rules, required undera child nutrition law passedby Congress in 2010, are partof the government’s effort tocombat childhood obesity.While many schools alreadyhave made improvements intheir lunch menus and vend-ing machine choices, othersstill are selling high-fat, high-calorie foods.Under the proposal, theAgriculture Departmentwould set fat, calorie, sugarand sodium limits on almostall foods sold in schools.Current standards alreadyregulate the nutritional con-tent of school breakfasts andlunches that are subsidized bythe federal government, butmost lunch rooms also have“a la carte” lines that sellother foods. And food soldthrough vending machinesand in other ways outsidethe lunchroom has not beenfederally regulated.“Parents and teachers workhard to instill healthy eatinghabits in our kids, and theseefforts should be supportedwhen kids walk throughSee SNACKS, page 2
Suicide bomber kills guardat US Embassy in Turkey
BY SUZAN FRASERThe Associated Press
ANKARA, Turkey — Inthe second deadly assaulton a U.S. diplomatic postin five months, a suicidebomber struck the AmericanEmbassy in Ankara onFriday, killing a Turkishsecurity guard in what theWhite House described as aterrorist attack.Washington immediatelywarned Americans to stayaway from all U.S. diplo-matic facilities in Turkey andto be wary in large crowds.Turkish officials said thebombing was linked to left-ist domestic militants.The attack drew con-demnation from Turkey,the U.S., Britain and othernations and officials fromboth Turkey and the U.S.pledged to work together tofight terrorism.“We strongly condemnwhat was a suicide attackagainst our embassy inAnkara, which took placeat the embassy’s outer secu-rity perimeter,” said WhiteHouse spokesman JayCarney.“A suicide bombing onthe perimeter of an embassyis by definition an act of ter-ror. It is a terrorist attack.”Turkish Prime MinisterRecep Tayyip Erdogan saidpolice believe the bomberwas connected to a domes-tic leftist militant group.Carney, however, said themotive for the attack andwho was behind it was notknown.A Turkish TV journal-ist was seriously woundedin the 1:15 p.m. blast inthe Turkish capital, and twoother guards had lighterwounds, officials said.The state-run AnadoluAgency identified thebomber as Ecevit Sanli. Itsaid the 40-year-old Turkishman was a member of theoutlawed RevolutionaryPeople’s Liberation Party-Front, or DHKP-C, whichhas claimed responsibilityfor assassinations and bomb-ings since the 1970s. Thegroup has been designated aterrorist organization by theUnited States but had beenrelatively quiet in recentyears.Hillary Rodham Clinton,in her farewell speech toState Department staff moments after she formal-ly resigned as secretary of state, said “we were attackedand lost one of our foreignservice nationals.”
She said she spoke withU.S. Ambassador FrancisRicciardone, “our team thereand my Turkish counterpart.I told them how much wevalued their commitment andtheir sacrifice.”Sen. John Kerry, theincoming secretary of state,also was briefed.The U.S. Embassy build-ing in Ankara is heavilyprotected and located nearseveral other embassies,including those of Germanyand France. U.S. diplomaticfacilities in Turkey have beentargeted previously by ter-rorists. In 2008, an attackblamed on al-Qaida-affil-iated militants outside theU.S. Consulate in Istanbulleft three assailants and threepolicemen dead.
On Sept. 11, 2012, terror-ists attacked a U.S. missionin Benghazi, Libya, kill-ing U.S. Ambassador ChrisStevens and three otherAmericans. The attackersin Libya were suspected tohave ties to Islamist extrem-ists, and one is in custody inEgypt.Friday’s bombingoccurred at a security check-point at the side entrance tothe U.S. Embassy, which isused by staff.State Department spokes-woman Victoria Nuland saida man detonated a suicidevest at the checkpoint onthe outer perimeter of theembassy compound.“He came to this firstpoint of access to the com-pound … where you have tohave your ID checked, youhave to go through security,”Nuland said.The guard who waskilled was standing outsidethe checkpoint, while thetwo wounded guards “werestanding in a more protectedarea,” said Interior MinisterMuammer Guler.The two were treated onthe scene and did not requirehospital treatment, he said.

This is so not how this wassupposed to be. I quit smokingand my lungs were supposedto clear and I was adding yearsto my life and getting sickless.Reality? Coughing, cough-ing, coughing. I thought per-haps it was my lungs purg-ing more than 30 years of cigarette smoke but I don’tthink so.Throat hurts. Chest hurts.Head hurts. Probably got afever. Yuck!Flu bug, why did you haveto visit me?It was inevitable. You can’thide from it. It gets us all -eventually.But I was supposed to geta free pass this year because Iquit smoking. It’s not fair.So now I have to get thiswritten, share my miserywith you and go to bed. Isit cold enough out there forya? I love walking the dogand having my nostrils freezetogether. I’m just lucky thisone is almost as cold as I ambecause he doesn’t have muchfur. Sadie could stick it out fora while with her triple coat.I’m ready for the heat wavetoday and I won’t even minda little snow. I’m hoping tosleep in a bit and wake up toa white wonderland. It willlook lovely while I snivel andcough.I wonder if BuckeyeChuck and PunxsutawneyPhil will agree today. I think itwould be cool to have my ownground hog and hold a partyeach Groundhog Day and leteveryone come over and see if my little guys sees his shadow – or not. So which will it be?Six more weeks of winter oran early spring? I’ll tell youa secret. Groundhog Day isabout six weeks from the firstday of spring. Coincidence? Idon’t know, you tell me.It would still be neat tohave my own groundhog.I’ve have been sleepingbetter since I quit smokingand that’s nolaughing mat-ter. I appreci-ate sleep andthere’s noth-ing better thangood sleep.Thingsare starting totaste better,too. I didn’tthink thingstasted bad before so this couldget interesting – and danger-ous. There’s this thing aboutquitting smoking: it’s reallyhard and you find yourself trying to replace it with some-thing and it’s usually food. Ithink Popsicles may be mysaving grace.There is one thing I hopeI don’t do after officiallybecoming an ex-smoker. Thatwould be to get down on peo-ple who still smoke. If anyoneknows how hard it is, I do. Itwas a big decision to put itout there in a column and leteveryone know.When smokers talk aboutit, it’s kind of like a club. Weall know how it is. We allknow how much they controlus and when one of us tries toquit and doesn’t make it, well,we all know that it’s hard andit may take more than onetry. When we see someonesmoking who said they weregoing to try and quit, we feeltheir pain. There’s no judging.We’re bummed because wethought maybe if they coulddo it, we could too.So remember that. Notnecessarily for me but for allthose trying to shake the nico-tine monkey off their back.
Why did you come a callin’?

the schoolhouse door,” saidAgriculture Secretary TomVilsack.Most snacks sold in schoolwould have to have less than200 calories. Elementary andmiddle schools could sell onlywater, low-fat milk or 100 per-cent fruit or vegetable juice.High schools could sellsome sports drinks, diet sodasand iced teas, but the calo-ries would be limited. Drinkswould be limited to 12-ounceportions in middle schools, and8-ounce portions in elementaryschools.The standards will covervending machines, the “a lacarte” lunch lines, snack barsand any other foods regular-ly sold around school. Theywould not apply to in-schoolfundraisers or bake sales,though states have the power toregulate them. The new guide-lines also would not apply toafter-school concessions atschool games or theater events,goodies brought from home forclassroom celebrations, or any-thing students bring for theirown personal consumption.
Hunt for murderermistakenly freed in Chicago
BY JASON KEYSERThe Associated Press
CHICAGO — Authoritiessearched Friday for a convict-ed murderer from Indiana whowas mistakenly released aftera Chicago court appearance,as officials in Illinois admittedthey lost paperwork directingthem to return him to Indiana.It turned out Steven L.Robbins didn’t even need tobe brought to Chicago in thefirst place, and Cook Countyofficials on Friday also pointedfingers over who was respon-sible for that mistake.Robbins, 44, was servinga 60-year sentence for murderin Indiana and was escortedby Cook County sheriff’sdeputies to Chicago this weekfor a court appearance in aseparate case involving drugand armed violence charges— a case that had actuallybeen dismissed in 2007. Afterappearing before two CookCounty Circuit Court judges,Robbins was taken to a jail onChicago’s South Side. He wasreleased hours later, instead of being sent back to Indiana tocontinue his murder sentence.The public was not alerted thathe was on the loose for about24 hours.Cook County Sheriff TomDart on Friday took respon-sibility for Robbins’ release,saying a document show-ing he should be returned toIndiana disappeared while hisdeputies were transporting theprisoner, sometime betweena Tuesday court appearanceand his return to jail after asecond court appearanceWednesday. Robbins wasreleased Wednesday evening.“We’re not ducking the factwe dropped the ball. We mademistakes,” Dart said. “Thepublic deserves much more.We’re going to find out whatwent wrong here.”But Dart and CookCounty State’s Attorney AnitaAlvarez, both prominent localDemocrats, exchanged tensewords about who should acceptresponsibility for havingRobbins brought to Chicagofrom Indiana. Alvarez said heroffice had told Dart’s officethat it didn’t need to bringRobbins from Indiana becausethe drug and armed violencecase was closed. But Dart’soffice proceeded anyway, shesaid, because of confusion overthe outcome of the case andbecause Robbins demanded tostand trial. “The Cook CountySheriff’s Police, despite thefact that the assistant state’sattorney told them that theydidn’t have to bring him back,they thought it would be betterif they did bring him back toget this all cleared up becausethe guy keeps writing lettersdemanding trial,” Alvarez toldreporters.But Dart said his officesought — and was granted— permission from the stateattorney’s office to bringRobbins to Chicago. The sher-iff showed The AssociatedPress a copy of the extradi-tion request from Septembersigned by one of Alvarez’sprosecutors. “We can’t just goto any state in the country andsay ‘You know what? We’regoing to take someone outof your prison and bring himhere.’ … They’re the ones thatsigned off on allowing us to goget this guy,” Dart said.Dart also said that becauseof an antiquated computersystem, his office thought anarrest warrant for Robbins inthe case was still active, whichis why it asked the state attor-ney’s office for permission toextradite Robbins. “It’s ourfault but we move 100,000people a day and it’s all donewith paper,” Dart said. Federaland local law enforcementofficers searching for Robbinswere knocking on doors inIllinois and Indiana on Friday,including those of his friendsand relatives, the sheriff’soffice said. The FBI and U.S.Marshals Service offered a$10,000 reward for informa-tion leading to his apprehen-sion.In a late afternoon inter-view, Dart said there had beensightings of the fugitive andthat authorities had been closeto catching him. Robbins, aGary, Ind., native, was serv-ing a sentence for murder andweapons convictions out of Marion County in Indiana.Witnesses to the 2002 killingtold police Robbins was argu-ing with his wife outside abirthday party in Indianapoliswhen a man intervened, tell-ing Robbins he should not hita woman, according to courtdocuments. The witnesses saidRobbins then retrieved a gunfrom a car and shot the man,Rutland Melton, in the chestbefore fleeing.CLEVELAND — TheseOhio lotteries were drawnFriday:

COLUMBUS —Republican Josh Mandel isn’tready to write off his politi-cal future after his unsuccessfulchallenge to U.S. Sen. SherrodBrown last fall in one of themost bitter, closely-watchedand expensive elections in thecountry.Mandel confirmed this weekthat he plans to seek re-electionas Ohio treasurer next year.“Obviously it’s impossibleto predict the future, but youknow, I think the best courseforward for me is just do a good job as state treasurer, which Ibelieve we have been doing andI’ll continue to do,” Mandel saidThursday during a legislativepreview session for journalistsorganized by The AssociatedPress. Asked to reflect on therancorous campaign and itspotentially damaging effect onhis political ambitions, Mandelrattled off a few Ohio politi-cians who he said bounced backafter their “political obituaries”were written. He noted thatGeorge Voinovich had a dou-ble-digit loss in a 1988 Senaterace before becoming governorand later U.S. senator, and thatcurrent Ohio Attorney GeneralMike DeWine lost a 1992 chal-lenge to then-Sen. John Glennbut won a Senate seat two yearslater. DeWine lost the seat toBrown, a Democrat, in 2006.

The question of the day: “Did he see hisshadow?”Winter seems to have arrived in all itsglory and hopefully will make a dramatic exitshortly. But at the moment, I am glad I’m notone of those people that has to deliver mail inthis weather.As many of you already know, the personatt
ributed with the quotation “Neither snow norrain, etc.” was Herodotus, a historian who livedin the Fifth Century BC in Ancient Greece. Thestatement is certainly a far cry from today’smodern postal service. But at the moment, Iam thinking about the weather that a chosenfew will enjoy in Alaska this summer. I amlooking for 2-5 additional people who wouldlike to join us for the trip of a lifetime. We dohave a woman who will be traveling by her-self but would welcome a roommate so if youor someone you know might be so inclined.We leave on July 27 and return on August5. Our small caravan of travelers will be inAnchorage, Denali, Talkeetna, Seward, KenaiFjords/Peninsula and on the glaciers using rafts,kayaks, dog sleds, planes, trains, ATVs, Jeeps,boats and riding in luxury conversion vehicles.Lodging will be at quaint inns and bed & break-fasts. We will have our final meeting at 7 p.m.Tuesday at the museum to work out the last fewdetails and meet all those who have paid theirdeposit to go. Curious? Interested? Stop in. Allof us are your friends and neighbors from thesurrounding community.
I did hear a large groan Monday when thepostage rates were elevated another $.01 to$.46 for a first class ounce letter. That equatesto about a 2.5 percent increase in cost incomparison to the $.62 cent increase over thelast weeks in the cost of a gallon of gas. ButI digress. Of the industrialized nations in theworld the US still enjoys the least expensivemail service. In most categories, the rates onlyincreased on the very first ounce additionalounces are still the same.The year 2013 is a milestone in many cat-egories. One such milestone will be the themeof this year’s Gala Celebration on Feb. 17 inthe upstairs gallery of the Museum of PostalHistory. It is the 100th Anniversary of the cre-ation of parcel post. This service actually wentinto effect on Jan. 1 of that year and was thebeginning of the US Post Office Department’ssurge as the forefront of a global economy.This enactment was the end of a very long andheated debate in Congress.Businesses in rural communities relied onthe local farmer for a major portion of theirretail business. By allowing large urban storessuch as Sears & Roebuck, Montgomery Wardsand Wannamaker’s to package their goods anddeliver them inexpensively to the Americanfarm, it was predicted that this alone wouldend the small town businesses. Ironically, theprediction did come true but only in small partto the beginning of parcel post.It has been said that on the table in theAmerican farmhouse you would find just twoitems – the family Bible and a Sears catalog.If you visit the Delphos Canal CommissionMuseum, you will find a Sears’ car on display.Yes you could purchase a car, a weapon, ahome and just about anything else you couldpossibly want and have it delivered to yourdoor. Remember the reason I say to your dooris because Rural Free Delivery (RFD) beganin 1896 as an experiment in West Virginia.Our Gala Celebration will include drinks, abuffet dinner, music by Bob Ulm, desserts byRuth Ann and trivia contest which will requireyou to find the answers to questions by tour-ing the museum, and the awarding of ourgrand door prize of a week’s vacation in yourchoice of either Lake Tahoe or Palm Springs,California. Reservations will be accepted bysending your check for $25 per person to:MPH, PO Box 174, Delphos OH 45833-0174.It is ironic that we chose to celebrate thisservice just as the postal service has begunto change various characteristics of this typeof mail. First, Parcel Post is being renamedStandard Post and will only be available forpurchase at the post office. Second, ParcelSelect is replacing Parcel Post for online post-age vendors and will now include free deliv-ery confirmation.Other important events this year includethe 100th anniversary of the Lincoln Highway(the first coast to coast paved highway),the 100th anniversary of the Delphos Floodand the 100th anniversary of the openingof New York’s Grand Central Station. OnMarch 1, 1913, the 16th Amendment to theUS Constitution was ratified creating IncomeTax and one week later, the Internal RevenueService began collection of income taxes. Thefirst minimum wage law was put into effectin Oregon and the first crossword puzzle wasprinted in one of New York’s newspapers theNY World with just 32 clues. To commemo-rate this great publishing event, the US PostalService issued a stamp to honor crosswordpuzzles in 1997.
