TOKYO (AP) — Japan’sgovernment ordered the oper-ator of a tsunami-damagednuclear plant today to pay$12,000 to each householdforced to evacuate because of leaking radiation, but someof the displaced slammed thehandout as too little.Tens of thousands of resi-dents unable to return to theirhomes near the nuclear plantare bereft of their livelihoodsand possessions, unsure of when, if ever, they will be ableto return home. Some havetraveled hundreds of kilome-ters (miles) to Tokyo ElectricPower Co.’s headquarters inTokyo to press their demandsfor compensation.TEPCO will start payingcompensation April 28, withfamilies forced to evacuategetting 1 million yen (about$12,000) and individuals getting750,000 yen (about $9,000),Trade Ministry spokesmanHiroaki Wada said.“There are around 150evacuation centers alone. It willtake some time until everyonegets money. But we want thecompany to quickly do this tosupport people’s lives,” TradeMinister Banri Kaieda said at anews conference.The arrangement is a pro-visional one, with more com-pensation expected, Wadasaid. Roughly 48,000 house-holds living within about 19miles (30 kilometers) of thecrippled Fukushima Dai-ichinuclear plant would be eli-gible for the payments.“I’m not satisfied,” saidKazuko Suzuki, a 49-year-oldsingle mother of two teenag-ers from the town of Futuba,adjacent to the plant. She haslived at a shelter at a highschool north of Tokyo for thelast month.Her family has had to buyclothes, food, shampoo andother basics because they fledthe area on government orderswithout taking time to pack.She has lost her job as a wel-fare worker, and a job pros-pect for her 18-year-old fellthrough because of the effectsof the disaster.“We’ve had to spend moneyon so many extra things andwe don’t know how long thiscould go on,” she said.Akemi Osumi, a 48-year-old mother of three also fromFutuba, said the money was a“small step” but that it didn’tfairly compensate larger fami-lies. Her family is living at thesame shelter but also must rentan apartment for her eldest sonto go to a vocational school.“One million yen doesn’tgo very far,” she said. “I’m notconvinced at just 1 million yenper family. If it was dependenton the size of the family I’dunderstand, but it’s not.”

Littleton IIpleaded guilty in westernOhio’s Logan County tothree counts of aggravatedmurder and three counts of gross abuse of a corpse inthe February slayings of Tiffany Brown and Richardand Gladis Russell.Littleton, 37, pleadedguilty in a deal with pros-ecutors to avoid the deathpenalty.Prosecutors have saidrelatives of the victimsagreed to the deal to get“closure” and healing and toavoid the lengthy court pro-ceedings associ-ated with deathpenalty cases.Chief AssistantProsecutorEric Stewartsaid Littletontold detectivesrepeatedly thathe didn’t knowwhy he killedBrown and theRussells.Littleton kepthis head downmuch of the time, respond-ing in a soft, clear voiceto a series of yes or noquestions from the judge.His hands were shaking attimes. He declined to makeany statement, although oneof his attorneys apologizedin court to the victims’ fam-ilies, many of whom weptthroughout mostof the hearing.Shouts of “cow-ard!” came fromthe crowd as hewas led away.Some of the victims’family mem-bers addressedLittleton incourt, talkingof the pain andgrief Littletoncaused.“Our lives have beenforever changed by SamLittleton’s senseless act of violence,” said Brown’sfather, Larry Brown. “Weask ourselves every daywhy, but we will never havean answer.”Richard Russell’s neph-ew, Jim Hall, told Littletonthat he hopes “every timethe door slams behind youin that prison, you arereminded of the three livesyou took.”Littleton was convictedin the Feb. 11 stabbing deathof Brown, 26.

Ottoville to present ‘Mirror Image’ this weekend 
Ottoville High School will present the musical comedy “Mirror Image” in the auditeria at 8 p.m. today and Saturday.A dress rehearsal was held for the musical Thursday night. Above: “The Woodsman,” left, played by Sam Beining, complains about his lack of a real name while “Rosamond” or “Sleeping Beauty” played by Marissa Nienberg sleeps onthe floor. “Mirror Image” explores the fine line between reality and fantasy as the wicked stepsisters from Cinderella, tired of being despised, discover a way to reality through the Magic Mirror. The sisters’ meanness serves them well inreality but creates major problems back in the fairy tale world. The missing wicked stepsisters mean Cinderella won’thave a fairy godmother and the prince is less than impressed with her. The woodsman from Little Red Riding Hood andseveral other stories wants to be a hero rather than an “incidental character,” so he sets out to make a name for himself by bringing the stepsisters back. With no woodsman to save her, Little Red gets mauled by the wolf and Sleeping Beautyhas to chop her own wood with disastrous results. Meanwhile in reality, the stepsisters are wreaking havoc and thewoodsman finds out that being a hero is a lot harder than he imagined. “Mirror Image” features a cast of 38 studentsoffering a fun show the whole family can enjoy. Admission is $5 per person.

World’s oldest man dies in Montana at 114
By MATT VOLZThe Associated Press
GREAT FALLS, Mont. —Walter Breuning’s earliest mem-ories stretched back 111 years,before home entertainment camewith a twist of the radio dial. Theywere of his grandfather’s tales of killing Southerners in the CivilWar.Breuning was 3 and horrified:“I thought that was a hell of athing to say.”But the stories stuck, becomingthe first building blocks into whatwould develop into a deceptivelysimple philosophy that Breuning,the world’s oldest man at 114before he died Thursday, creditedto his longevity.Here’s the world’s oldestman’s secret to a long life:— Embrace change, evenwhen the change slaps you in theface. (“Every change is good.”)— Eat two meals a day (“That’sall you need.”)— Work as long as you can(“That money’s going to come inhandy.”)— Help others (“The moreyou do for others, the better shapeyou’re in.”)Then there’s the hardest part.It’s a lesson Breuning said helearned from his grandfather:Accept death.“We’re going to die. Somepeople are scared of dying. Neverbe afraid to die. Because you’reborn to die,” he said.Breuning died of natural causesin a Great Falls hospital where hehad been a patient for much of April with an undisclosed illness,said Stacia Kirby, spokeswomanfor the Rainbow Senior Livingretirement home where Breuninglived.He was the oldest man in theworld and the second-oldest per-son, according to the Los Angeles-based Gerontology ResearchGroup. Besse Cooper of Monroe,Ga. — born 26 days earlier — isthe world’s oldest person.In an interview with TheAssociated Press at his homein the Rainbow RetirementCommunity in Great Falls lastOctober, Breuning recounted thepast century — and what its rev-elations and advances meant tohim — with the wit and plain-spokenness that defined him. Hislife story is, in a way, a slice of the story of the country itself overmore than a century.———At the beginning of the newcentury — that’s the 20th century— Breuning moved with his fam-ily from Melrose, Minn., to DeSmet, S.D., where his father hadtaken a job as an engineer.That first decade of the 1900swas literally a dark age for hisfamily. They had no electricity orrunning water. A bath for youngWalter would require his motherto fetch water from the well out-side and heat it on the coal-burn-ing stove. When they wanted toget around, they had three options:train, horse and foot.His parents split up andBreuning moved back toMinnesota in 1912. The followingyear, as Henry Ford was creat-ing his first assembly line, theteenager got a low-level job withthe Great Northern Railway inMelrose.“I’m 16 years old, had to go towork on account of breakup of thefamily,” he said.That was the beginning of a50-year career on the railroad. Hewas a clerk for most of that time,working seven days a week.In 1918, his boss was pro-moted to a position in Great Fallsand he asked Breuning to comealong.There wasn’t a lot keepingBreuning in Minnesota. His moth-er had died the year before at age46 and his father died in 1915 atage 50. The Montana job camewith a nice raise — $90 a monthfor working seven days a week,“a lot of money at that time,” hesaid.Breuning, young and alone,was overwhelmed at first. GreatFalls was a bustling town of 25,000 with hundreds of peoplecoming and going every day ontrains that arrived at all hours.“You go down to the depot andthere’d be 500 people out there allclimbing into four trains going infour directions,” he said.World War I was still ragingin Europe, and Breuning, who had just turned 20, signed up for mili-tary service but wasn’t called up.He wanted to join an Army unitformed by Ralph Budd, who wasthe railroad’s vice president at thetime and who later would becomeits president.He sent Budd an application,and the reply was disappointing.Budd said Breuning couldn’t jointhe unit because he wanted theyoung man to get a college edu-cation. The war ended later thatyear.“So I never got into the war.The war ended too quick for me,”Breuning said.———The 19th Amendment gavewomen the right to vote in 1919and the nation was riding a post-war wave into the Roaring ‘20s.Walter Breuning bought hisfirst car that year.It was a secondhand Ford andcost just $150. Breuning remem-bered driving around town andspooking the horses that stillcrowded the dirt streets.“We had more damn runawaysback in those days,” Breuning said.“Horses are just scared of cars.”The year may have startedwell, but it went downhill fast.Drought struck. The price of hayskyrocketed and farmers had tosell their cattle. It was the firstwave of agricultural depressionsthat would hit Montana over thenext two decades.The railroad started layingoff people. Breuning had someseniority, so rather than losing his job, he was transferred to Butte. Itwas there he met his future wife,Agnes.Agnes Twokey worked for therailroad as a telegrapher. She and

railroad as a telegrapher. Sheand Breuning worked thesame shift in the office, andthey got along well. Theirfriendship turned into a two-year courtship, and then theygot married and returned toGreat Falls.Despite the hard timesof the decade, he said whathe considered the nation’sgreatest achievement camein 1935, when PresidentFranklin Roosevelt signedSocial Security into law aspart of his New Deal.“I think when Rooseveltcreated Social Security, heprobably did the best thing forpeople,” Breuning said. “Youhear so much about throw-ing Social Security out. Don’tlook for it. Hang on to yourhat. It’ll never go away.”———The 1950s brought rock-and-roll, put the U.S. in themiddle of the Korean War andkicked off the space race withthe USSR’s launch of Sputnik.The world was introduced toElvis Presley, Fidel Castroand Sen. Joseph McCarthy.For Walter Breuning, the1950s was marked by thedeath of his wife. Agnes diedin 1957 after 35 years of mar-riage. The couple didn’t haveany children.More than 50 years later,Breuning kept his feelings onhis marriage and Agnes’ deathguarded.“We got along very good,”was about all he’d say. “Shewouldn’t like to spend money,I’ll tell you that.”Breuning never remarried.“Thought about it. That’sabout it.”He did what he always did.He kept working.Work was a constant inBreuning’s life, what he didto get through the hard timesand what he used to keep hismind active. One of the worstthings a person can do is retireyoung, Breuning said.“Don’t retire until you’redarn sure that you can’t workanymore. Keep on workingas long as you can work andyou’ll find that it’s good foryou,” he added.The same year the Beatlesreleased their first album,Breuning decided it was timefor him to retire from the rail-road at age 67. It was 1963and he had put in 50 years asa railroad worker.But he stuck by his phi-losophy and kept working.He became the manager andsecretary for the local chapterof the Shriners, a position heheld until he was 99.But he remained a fiercelyloyal railroad man, so loyalthat he only took an airplaneonce in his life, and that wasto attend the funeral of a rela-tive in Minneapolis.His fellow clerks began tofeel the effects of technology.In the 1970s, computers start-ed changing industries and theneed for manpower. At therailroad, men and women werelaid off at depots and freightoffices. Superintendents andclerks like Breuning weregiven their walking papers.But even with so many of his former co-workers out of  jobs, Breuning was adamantthat the rise of the comput-er was good for the railroadindustry and the world.“I think every change thatwe’ve ever made, ever sinceI was a child — 100 years —every change has been goodfor the people,” Breuning said.“My God, we used to have towrite with pen and ink, youknow, (for) everything. Whenthe machines came, it justmade life so much easier.”———Breuning had lived in asparse studio apartment in theRainbow Senior Living retire-ment center since 1980.When he was recognizedas the world’s oldest man andbrought the retirement homesome notoriety, he was offereda larger room. Breuning saidno, Rainbow executive direc-tor Tina Bundtrock said inOctober.Breuning would spent hisdays in an armchair outsidethe Bundtrock’s office in adark suit and tie, sitting neara framed Guinness certificateproclaiming him the world’soldest man.He would eat breakfast andlunch and then retire to hisroom in the early afternoon.He’d visit the doctor justtwice a year for checkups andthe only medication he wouldtake was aspirin, Bundtrocksaid.He had no family left buta niece and a nephew. Theyvisited a couple of times atthe retirement home, but theywere strangers to him, hesaid.Breuning’s real family, hissupport group, was there inthe Rainbow.“Yeah, we’re all one bigfamily, I tell you that. We alltalk to each other all the time.That’s what keeps life going.You talk,” he said.Breuning talked currentaffairs with the other resi-dents. One of his main causeswas to end the wars in Iraqand Afghanistan.“War never cured any-thing. Look at the North andSouth right today. They’restill fighting over the damnwar. They’ll never get overthat,” he said.Along with debating othersabout the fate of the nation,Breuning also spent time alot of time reflecting. Sittingin his armchair, he wouldreach back across the centuryand lose himself in a floodof memories that began withhis grandfather’s Civil Warstories.He also thought about whatmight have been. After 97years in Montana, Breuningsaid he thought back to histransfer to Great Falls backin 1913.What course would hehave gone on, how differentwould that century have beenfor him if he had stayed inMinnesota?“Sometimes I wonder whatwould have happened had I notmoved to Great Falls. I thinkabout that once in a while.What would have happened?”Breuning said. “I had a good job back (in Minnesota). Butlife is good here too.”But he didn’t regret any-thing, and he implored othersto follow his philosophy.“Everybody says yourmind is the most importantthing about your body. Yourmind and your body. Youkeep both busy, and by Godyou’ll be here a long time,”he said.

Census: Hispanics surpassblacks in most US metros
By HOPE YENThe Associated Press
WASHINGTON —Hispanics now outnumberAfrican-Americans for thefirst time in most U.S. met-ropolitan areas, shifting thepolitical and racial dynamicsin cities once dominated bywhites and blacks.Census figures releasedThursday highlight the grow-ing diversity of the nation’s366 metro areas, which werehome to a record 83.7 percentshare of the U.S. population.The numbers from the 2010count are already having abig effect on redistricting inmany states, where districtboundary lines are beingredrawn based on populationsize and racial makeup.Hispanics became thelargest minority group in191 metropolitan areas lastyear, their population liftedhigher as blacks left manyeconomically hard-hit citiesin the North for the Southand new Latino immigrantsspread to different parts of the country. That’s up from159 metro areas when theprevious Census was taken in2000, when Hispanics weremost commonly found inSouthwest border states.The new metro areasinclude Chicago; GrandRapids, Mich. and AtlanticCity, N.J., whose states willlose U.S. House seats in the2012 elections. Other placesseeing rapid Hispanic gainscompared to blacks wereLakeland, Fla.; Madison,Wis.; Oklahoma City andOmaha, Neb., due to the mid-decade housing boom thatattracted many new immi-grants seeking work in theconstruction and serviceindustries.The Census Bureau report-ed last month that overallHispanic population jumped42 percent in the last decadeto 50.5 million, or 1 in 6Americans. Blacks increaseda modest 11 percent to 37.7million, with declines par-ticularly evident in big citiessuch as New York, Detroit,Cleveland, and St. Louis,Mo.The political effects havebeen immediate. Analystsand black groups — includ-ing some members of theCongressional Black Caucusthemselves — are acknowl-edging the possibility of fewer black-majority Housedistricts, even as they fightto preserve, if not expand,their gains. That’s becauseof slowing African-Americangrowth in big cities andbroader black movement overthe last decade into once pre-dominantly white suburbs.Currently there are 43members in the CongressionalBlack Caucus, which is most-ly Democrat. Last November,blacks had a net gain of twoseats in the House, includ-ing Republicans Allen Westof Florida, who is a caucusmember, and Tim Scott of South Carolina, who is not.

Get Your Children InterestedIn Newspapers
How do you help parents get a child interested in look-ing at a newspaper? Keep in mind that it’s a kid’s job tohave fun.Here are a few ideas to share with the readers of our paper.
Select a news story or a comic strip and cut the panels or paragraphs apart. Help your child arrange the panels or paragraphs in logical order.
Read a brief editorial or column together. Have the childunderline facts with a blue pen and opinions with a red pen.
Have your child choose a headline and turn it into aquestion. Have the child read the article to see if it answersthe question.
The way newspapers are sold mayhave changed, but fact is, newspapersare still the most “value-added” sourceof information around. Where else canyou find facts, food, fashion, finance,“funnies”, football, and of coursegood old-fashioned reporting, for justpennies a day? With something newto greet you each day, from cover tocover, your newspaper is really oneextraordinary buy, so pick it up and“read all about it” daily!
