RIO DE JANEIRO —Grieving families gatheredtoday to bury 12 childrengunned down in the halls of their elementary school, anunheard-of act of school vio-lence left stunned Braziliansstruggling for answers.Ten girls and two boysbetween the ages of 12 and15 were gunned down, mostshot in the head at point-blank range by 23-year-oldWellington Oliveira, whoshot and killed himself afterbeing confronted by police.At least 12 other studentswere injured in the Thursdayshooting at the Tasso daSilveira public school. Twoare in grave condition.Neighbors wanderedpast the school in a shockeddaze today, leaving flowersalong the wall of the schoolin western Rio’s working-class Realengo neighbor-hood. Twelve crosses wereleft along a wall just outsidethe school, the name of eachchild killed written on whitepieces of paper above them.Officials posted the sched-ule for 12 funerals on theschool gate. On a blackboardin the school yard, teachersleft messages imploring forbetter security in Brazil’sschools. One read, “TheCarioca family is in mourn-ing” — Carioca being thenickname for natives of Rio.Guvete Antunes, who livesacross the street from theschool, sobbed as she tried tomake sense of the massacre.“What an absurd thing thathappened!” she said, lookingat the crosses and flowersoutside the school. “I neverthought anything like thiscould happen here. Childrencame running out of thatschool, desperate, with gun-shot wounds, banging on mydoor and screaming, ’Auntie,please help us”!”Brazilian tradition stipu-lates that people be buriedthe day after their death, andSENDAI, Japan (AP) —Nearly a million homes suf-fered blackouts in Japan’snortheast today after a newearthquake killed three peopleand piled more misery on aregion buried under the rubbleof last month’s devastatingtsunami.The northeastern coast wasstill reeling from the destruc-tion wrought by a jumbo9.0-magnitude earthquake onMarch 11, with tens of thou-sands of households withoutpower or water.

DELPHOS — Withrecent economic declineand rising unemploymentrates, more people are find-ing themselves depressedwith their jobs. TammyCorzine of Middle Pointcould be counted amongthe exceptions. As ownerof Celebrations in Delphos,she gets to spend her dayshelping people celebrate thegreat moments in their lives— a career that began with acelebration of her own.“I really got startedwhen I was 17, back whenI took a class at Vantage,”she said. “It was a class onflowers and balloons thatI decided to take when Iwas planning my wedding.I ended up working for thelady who taught the classand eventually took over forher. Then when Ultrasoundhere in Delphos was goingout of business, we boughta lot of their inventory andended up buying the wholestore.”Corzine decorates eventsranging from weddings andshowers to birthdays andschool proms.“We’re doing ourfirst full prom this year,for Ottoville,” she said.“Before, we’ve done small-er things like a few bal-loon columns or an arch orsomething like that. We’rejust starting to get into themore commercial end wherewe’re doing birthday par-ties and anniversaries andshowers. Our biggest thingis probably graduation par-ties. It’s like our equivalentof Christmas.”“For weddings, we dofull service set-up and takedowns,” Corzine added.“And we do balloon andnon-balloon decor and sellretail party supplies. Werent out things like linens,backdrops and centerpieces.We’re strictly decor, so noentertainment supplies liketents or chairs.”When designing customdecorations for an event,Corzine says the customeralmost always has a specificidea in mind.“Usually when someonecomes in, they know whatthey want and give us some-thing specific to design,”she said. “But occasionally,a customer will come inwith just a general idea of what they’d like and a bud-get in mind and let us runwith it. These are usuallythe people we’ve workedwith before, so they trustus to give them somethingthey’ll like. You get yourbest deal that way becauseit allows us to really getcreative.”Even though a large partof Corzine’s job is retail,she also spends a good dealof time exercising her cre-ative talents.“We have conventionswe go to, maybe one eachyear, and there are contestsyou can enter,” she said.“Last November I won‘Designer of the Year’ inone of the contests with oneof my pieces. I’m lucky toget to deal with more of the creative end of the jobthan the business end. Themost interesting things I doare usually for the contests,like my 12-foot seahorse orthe frogs I did last year that

McCoy warns of possible severeweather for Sunday
From Van Wert CountyEmergency ManagementDirector Rick McCoy
The Van Wert CountyEmergency ManagementAgency is warning of a pos-sible severe weather eventSunday night and is askingthat the public monitor con-ditions very closely as thestorm system gets closer.“A significant weather sys-tem is poised to hit the Plainsinto the Ohio Valley andGreat Lakes over the week-end and could be a prettylarge and dangerous event. Itis these types of early springstorm systems that producelarge, strong tornadoes thatdo considerable amounts of damage and injure or takelives. I am hoping that thestorms take a bit of a turn butthe potential is there for it toaffect us,” Agency DirectorRick McCoy said.On Wednesday, theNational Weather Servicebegan conference calls witharea Emergency Managersputting them on alert forSunday’s storms. TheNational Weather Service saidthis particular storm systemhas the potential to be a majorweather event for the area.It has the potential to pro-duce devastating damage, notthe typical isolated-scatteredreports of an average severeweather event. Areas fromIowa to Ohio will be affectedand it appears that it mayoccur across the Van Wertarea overnight on Sundaynight through early Mondaymorning. The NationalWeather Service has said asevere squall line or line of supercell thunderstorms willmove through a number of states this weekend.“Significant wind damagewith large hail will be pos-sible. There is an increasedrisk for violent, long-trackedtornadoes of EF-3 rating orhigher,” McCoy said. “Thefact that the National WeatherService is keying in on thisparticular storm so early is of concern. There is still muchuncertainty due to currentmodels of the upper-leveltrough, so forecasts couldcertainly change. With tem-peratures expected around 81degrees on Sunday, with dewpoints around 70 and a 105-knot jet overhead, the stagewill be set for the event sopeople should prepare in caseit all develops and affects ourcounty.“Hopefully, with moresevere weather predictedthis spring due to the strongLa Nina that caused such anactive winter, people havereviewed emergency plansand know how to respond if warnings are issued. Our goalis not to scare the public butwe have the responsibility tolet the public know that thissevere weather threat exists.With Van Wert County lead-ing the state in tornadoes inthe last 20 years with 20 tor-nadoes actually hitting thecounty, I think the publicunderstands the importanceof being ready.”There are many differentways of getting informationregarding weather forecastsand warnings when storms areoccurring. Listed are some of the possibilities that exist:— Northern IndianaNational Weather Serviceweb site: www.crh.noaa.gov/iwx/;— Storm PredictionCenter: www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/;— NOAA WeatherRadios;— Scanners listening tolocal Emergency Managementon frequency 155.805 MHz;— The Weather Channel;— Local television andradio stations;— Local media Internetsites; and— Pager or cellular phonealerts.

NATO: No apology forhitting rebels in tanks
By SLOBODAN LEKICThe Associated Press
BRUSSELS — NATOacknowledged today that itsairstrikes had hit rebels usingtanks to fight governmentforces in eastern Libya, butsaid it would not apologize forthe deaths because no one toldthem the rebels had tanks.British Rear Adm. RussellHarding, the deputy com-mander of the NATO opera-tion, said in the past, onlyforces loyal to Libyan strong-man Moammar Gadhafi hadused heavy armored vehicles.Harding says the militarysituation between Libya’s east-ern coastal towns of Brega andAjdabiya remains fluid, withthe two sides engaged in aseries of advances and retreats,making it difficult for pilots todistinguish between them.NATO jets attacked a rebelconvoy between these twotowns Thursday, killing atleast five fighters and destroy-ing or damaging a number of armored vehicles.The strikes, including anattack earlier this week, pro-voked angry denunciations of NATO by the rebels. At thesame time, NATO officialshave expressed frustrationwith the Libyan insurgents,who now view the alliance,whose mandate is limited toprotecting civilians in Libya,as their proxy air force.NATO’s Secretary-GeneralAnders Fogh Rasmussenexpressed regret over the lossof life, saying alliance forceswere doing everything possibleto avoid harming civilians.NATO last week took con-trol over the international air-strikes that began March 19as a U.S.-led mission. Theairstrikes thwarted Gadhafi’sefforts to crush the rebellionin the North African nation hehas ruled for more than fourdecades, but the rebels remainoutnumbered and outgunnedand have had difficulty push-ing into government-held ter-ritory even with air support.Harding said today thatNATO jets had conducted 318sorties and struck 23 targetsacross Libya in the past 48hours. They have flown over1,500 sorties in the eight dayssince the alliance assumedoverall command from a U.S.-led force.NATO’s jets have destroyedGadhafi’s anti-aircraft mis-sile defenses, T-72 tanks andammunition dumps, Hardingsaid. The attacks also targetedGadhafi’s loyalist forces inthe besieged city of Misrata,where rebels continue to holdout.Critics have questionedNATO’s limited strategyof only protecting civiliansthreatened by Gadhafi’stroops, rather than trying toeliminate the threat complete-ly by destroying the strong-man’s regime.“By not striking at theregime from the outset,Gadhafi was granted the ini-tiative to embed his forces inurban settings hiding behindhuman shields in a form of guerrilla warfare,” said BarackSeneer, a researcher on theMiddle East at the RoyalUnited Services Institute, aBritish military think tank.“A no-fly zone is notequipped to contend withguerrilla warfare or with astalemate that places rebelsand loyalists at close proxim-ity with one another.” he said

today and were forced to rationpurchases again.Still, the latest quake didfar less damage, generated notsunami and largely spared theregion’s nuclear plants. Someslightly radioactive waterspilled at one plant, but thetsunami-crippled FukushimaDai-ichi complex reported nonew problems.Matsuko Ito, who has beenliving in a shelter in the smallnortheastern city of Natori sincethe tsunami, said there’s no get-ting used to the terror of beingawoken by shaking. She saidshe started screaming when thequake struck around 11:30 p.m.“It’s enough,” the 64-year-old while smoking a ciga-rette outside. “Somethinghas changed. The world feelsstrange now. Even the way theclouds move isn’t right.”The latest tremor — thestrongest since the day of thetsunami — cut power to morehomes, though it was quick-ly restored to many. About950,000 households were stillwithout electricity this evening,said Souta Nozu, a spokesmanfor Tohoku Electric PowerCo., which serves northernJapan. That includes homes inprefectures in Japan’s north-west that had been spared inthe first quake.Six conventional plants inthe area were knocked out,though three have since comeback online and the othersshould be up again withinhours, Nozu said. But withpower lines throughout thearea damaged, it was not clearwhether normal operationswould be restored, he said.

On April 1, the hallwaysat Vantage were filled withanticipation as the seniors pre-sented their Senior CapstoneProjects to teachers, staff andcommunity members.The Senior CapstoneProject is a part of the stu-dents’ final year at Vantage.The project incorporates theskills, concepts, and data froma student’s career technicalprogram into one culminatingproject. This is a three-partprocess: a written researchpaper, a project or productcreated outside of the normalschool day, and a formal oralpresentation using PowerPointtechnology on a Smart Boardin front of a panel of adultjudges and Vantage juniors.Each student had the opportu-nity to demonstrate a signifi-cant personal and academicgrowth throughout the courseof the project.Emotions were runninghigh — anxiety, excitementand doubt — as the studentsreviewed their notes in thehallway just before the pre-sentations began.“The Senior Capstoneproject provides an oppor-tunity for making the lasttwo years of high schoolmeaningful and practical.This day is filled with muchexcitement and anticipation.For most of our seniors,this day is a positive andmemorable experience —one they will never forget,”Beth Evans, senior Englishteacher said.It was obvious that manystudents had devoted a greatdeal of time to their projectsand were very proud of them.Here are just a few examplesof the projects that were pre-sented.Nolan Feathers, a Jeffersonsenior in the Auto Bodyprogram restored, his 1997Dodge Ram pick-up truck forhis project. “I gained a lotof self confidence doing mysenior project. It proved to methat I can actually do what Ilearned in Auto Body,” Nolansaid.Brandy Sloan, an EarlyChildhood Education seniorfrom Paulding, held a jeansday at Vantage to raisemoney to purchase the book,Mommy Please Donít Cry inmemory of Taylor Tumblin,the daughter of Roger andKelly Tumblin who died atthe age of 4. Taylor was bornwith the chromosome defectTrisomy 18. Brandy raisedenough money to purchase33 copies of the book, whichwill be donated to ToledoHospital in Taylor’s mem-ory.Jared Ricker, an Ottovillesenior in the IndustrialMechanics program builta motorized picnic table.“It took a lot longer than Ithought it would, but when Iwas done, I felt successful,”he said.Cosmetology seniors KaylaPeoples from Lincolnview,Tabrina Vance from Paulding,and Diedre Knippen fromOttoville organized a fashionshow for their senior project.The fashion show was heldduring Sophomore VisitationDay at Vantage so10th grad-ers could get a glimpse of thetype of skills that are learnedin Cosmetology.During their formal oralpresentation, all the seniorsexplained the processes theywent through in developingtheir project, the expectationsthey had, problems or chal-lenges that they encounteredalong the way, how long ittook them to complete theproject and what they reallylearned from the project.Juniors were able toobserve the seniors duringtheir presentations. Just aboutall the seniors had the samepiece of advice to the juniors,“Start early, don’t procrasti-nate and choose a topic thatinterests you.”In addition to Vantage staff members, nearly eighty busi-ness and industry partners,community members andadvisory committee mem-bers took the time to observeand evaluate these seniors.Several home school princi-pals and guidance counselorswere also in attendance.
