Ambulancesirens were heard throughoutcentral Manama a day afterriot police swept through theprotest encampment in PearlSquare, killing at least fivepeople.An Associated Presscameraman saw army unitsshooting anti-aircraft weap-ons above the protesters inapparent warning shots andattempts to drive them backfrom security cordons about200 yards (200 meters) fromthe square.The clash came just hoursafter funeral mourners andworshippers at Friday prayerscalled for the toppling of theWestern-allied monarchy inthe tiny island nation that ishome to the U.S. Navy’s 5thFleet.The cries against the kingand his inner circle — ata main Shiite mosque andat burials for those killed inThursday’s crushing attack— reflect an important esca-lation of the political upris-ing, which began with calls toweaken the Sunni monarchy’spower and address claims of discrimination against theShiite majority in the tinyisland nation.The mood, howev-er, appears to have turnedtoward defiance of the entireruling system after the bru-tal crackdown on a protestencampment in Bahrain’scapital, Manama, which leftat least five dead, more than230 injured and put the nationunder emergency-style foot-ing with military forces inkey areas and checkpoints onmain roads.“The regime has brokensomething inside of me. ...All of these people gatheredtoday have had somethingbroken in them,” said AhmedMakki Abu Taki at thefuneral for his 23-year-oldbrother, Mahmoud, who waskilled in the pre-dawn sweepthrough the protest camp inManama’s Pearl Square. “Weused to demand for the primeminister to step down, butnow our demand is for theruling family to get out.”The White House hasexpressed “strong displea-sure” about the rising ten-sions in Bahrain. The 5thFleet is the centerpiece of the Pentagon’s efforts to con-front growing Iranian militaryambitions in the region.At a Shiite mosque inthe village of Diraz, an anti-government hotbed, imamIsa Qassim called the PearlSquare assault a “massacre”and thousands of worship-pers chanted: “The regimemust go.”
Richard Anthony,55, of Byron, Ill., and for-merly of Delphos, memorialservice will be held at 4 p.m.Saturday at St. Peter LutheranChurch, followed by a prayerservice at 5:45 p.m. and mili-tary honors at 6 p.m.At 12:03 p.m on Thursday,a collision occurred when thedriver of one vehicle backedinto another vehicle.The vehicle of QuintonThornton was parked alongEast Second Street whenLindsay Reynolds, 22, of Delphos, began backing upfrom a parking space. Reynoldsfailed to see Thornton’s vehi-cle and struck it in the centerfront with the center rear of her vehicle.There were no injuries andminor damage to the vehicles.

Matthew Schliesman, a fire-fighter from Hamilton said hesaw the similar bills in Ohioand Wisconsin as attemptsto break a promise to publicemployees.“State budgets are tighteverywhere, obviously. Butthey’ve also negotiated thesecontracts with us and tobe able to say, ‘I have nomoney, we need to bail out,’I mean, do the rest of us getthose kinds of incentives?”he asked. “I mean, if I can’tpay my mortgage becauseI lose my job, is the bankgoing to bail me out andlet me still keep my house?Every testimony I hear hereis we have no money, weneed to be able to weasel outof the deals that we alreadymade.”Ted Lyons, an electronicsexecutive and tea party leaderfrom Miami County, saw theday differently.“Our state funding is goingbroke and every special inter-est has a good reason whythey need to be given as muchmoney as they have beengiven,“ he said. ”And we can’tafford it anymore.“Ohio’s tea party move-ment is among the nation’sstrongest — but tea partysupporters were fewer byfar than union protesters onThursday.On the High Street sideof the Statehouse — whichsits on the heart of downtownColumbus — a passing fireengine answering a call drewloud cheers and screams of support from the union-heavycrowd. As the vehicle passed,city and school buses on thestreets honked.

doing to fit more kids. We’reusing them as an aide in read-ing, as well as math and sci-ence,” said Jennings LocalSchools Superintendent NickLanghals. “They can read thescreen but they can also hearit, so that helps students in ouryounger grades learn to readand we’re having success withit. Kids can also do some mathand science exercises on themin the way of independentstudy; they can do the workon their own and the teacherscan see if they’re learning thematerial or if they need to goover it again.”Ottoville is using the larg-er iPad for the same things.Superintendent Scott Mangussaid the other benefit is imme-diate grading on tests that willexpedite further instruction asneeded when used for in-classquizzing.At Elida, No Child LeftBehind Director FaithCummings is coordinating thedistrict’s use of RttT dollars.Again, professional develop-ment is the federally-set crite-ria specifying how the moneyis used.“We are working on usingdata to improve instructionand will work with a systemthe state will purchase calledthe Instructional ImprovementSystem. It’s an electronicsystem that will use all theparts of what we do in schoolimprovement from studentdata to teacher evaluations andprofessional development,”she said.“We’re also going to lookat an area for revised stan-dards and assessments. Wehave revised standards inmath and language arts thatare federal and in science andsocial studies that are fromthe state. With Race to theTop money, we’re rolling outprofessional development andtraining. We’re also lookingat Great Teachers and GreatLeaders; we have a commit-tee that will work to meet anddevelop a teacher evaluationand principal evaluation sys-tem based on the state modelthat will include componentsof school improvement.”Cummings added that Raceto the Top is a “mini revolu-tion” in education that is aboutreform, not funding practicesalready in place.
