MUNICH — A Germancourt convicted retired U.S.autoworker John Demjanjukon Thursday of taking part inthe murder of tens of thousandsof Jews as a Nazi death campguard, breaking legal groundthat could pave the way for theprosecution of many low-levelcogs in Hitler’s machinery of destruction.The 91-year-old Demjanjukwas sentenced to five years inprison on 28,060 counts of accessory to murder — oneeach for the number of peoplekilled at the Sobibor deathcamp during the six months in1943 when he was convictedof standing guard there.But Demjanjuk will spendno immediate time behindbars. Presiding Judge RalphAlt ordered him released fromcustody pending his appeal —a process that could take atleast a year. It was not imme-diately clear when Demjanjukwould be released or where hewould go.The case was consideredgroundbreaking becausealthough scores of Nazi warcriminals have been tried andconvicted in Germany, inthis case there was no evi-dence that Demjanjuk (dem-YAHN’-yuk) committed aspecific crime.His prosecution wasbased on the theory that if Demjanjuk was at the campin Nazi-occupied Poland, hewas a participant in the killingthere — the first time such alegal argument has been madein German courts.“This case is a door open-er,” said Thomas Walther,a former federal prosecutorwho led the investigation thatprompted Germany to putDemjanjuk on trial.The Ukrainian-bornDemjanjuk was a Soviet RedArmy soldier captured by theGermans in Crimea in 1942.He is accused of then agreeingto serve as a “Wachmann,”or guard, the lowest rank of the “Hilfswillige,” formerPOWs who were subordinateto German SS men.Walther said his office hasmany cases that have beeninvestigated but shelvedand could now be reopened.Although it’s hard to say howmany living suspects mightfall into the same category asDemjanjuk, it could be hun-dreds or more, Walther said.“It could be very soon thatmore are brought to the table,”he told The Associated Press.The prospect of Demjanjuk’s release pendingappeal, though common underthe German justice system,drew immediate ire from thosewho had been pushing for hisconviction.“We don’t think that that’sappropriate given the heinousnature of his crimes,” EfraimZuroff, the chief Nazi hunter atthe Simon Wiesenthal Center,said in a telephone interviewfrom Jerusalem.Still, Zuroff called the con-viction “a very important vic-tory for justice.”“The verdict sends a verypowerful message that evenmany years after the crimesof the Holocaust, the perpetra-tors can be brought to justice,”he said. “We’re hopeful thatthis verdict will pave the wayfor additional prosecutions inGermany.”Demjanjuk attorney UlrichBusch said he was appeal-ing the decision and expressedconfidence he would succeed.Demjanjuk “will not see oneday in jail,” he said.Alt said Demjanjuk did notpose a flight risk because of his age, poor health and thefact that he is stateless afterbeing deported from the U.S.two years ago.That meant there were nogrounds to hold him, Alt said.“It’s the law, and so it’s justice,”he told the AP. “I say he’s guilty,but it’s not a final verdict.”Demjanjuk’s son, JohnDemjanjuk Jr., said his fatherneeds daily medical attention andwould likely need to be movedinto an assisted care facility —the costs of which would be paidby the German government.
Demjanjukconvicted overNazi camp deaths
“The verdictsends a verypowerful mes-sage that evenmany years afterthe crimes of the Holocaust, the perpetratorscan be broughtto justice. We’rehopeful thatthis verdict willpave the wayfor additionalprosecutions inGermany.”

Delphos, OH.- Delphos HearingAid Center located at 248 N.MainSt. Delphos, Ohio is set to give-away a set of AMP Hearing Aidsvalued at $1500.00.“We’re excited to provide thisoffer to our community. It’s our hope that everyone will join usin celebrating Better Hearingmonth in May, ” said Jane Rosen-garten who owns the business.
Delphos Hearing Aid Center togive away set of hearing aids
Celebration of May Better HearingMonth cited as reason for offer 
Starkey Laboratories’ newAMP Personal Audio Amplifier is a tiny new invisible hearingaid designed “for people whoaren’t ready for a hearing aid.”The new hearing aid is an affor-dable, cosmetically appealingsolution that does a good jobcorrecting mild or moderate hear-ing loss. At a suggested retail price of $750 a piece, the Star-key AMP hearing aid is designedto make it simple for audiolo-gists to send patients home with
their first hearing aidsafter their first visit with-out busting their budgets.Like Starkey’s popular SoundLens invisiblehearing aid, the tinyStarkey AMP hearingaid fits deep enoughwithin the average ear canal to be virtually invisible. But unlikethe SoundLens, the Starkey AMPis an entry level solution for peo- ple just starting to have troublewith their hearing. Its program-ming soft-ware comes with four  preset starting points to make iteasy for audiologists to tune thefour-channel device to meet theindividual requirements of patientswith the most common form of mild, mainly high-frequency hear-ing loss. A one-size-fits-most de-sign with an innovative “elastomer-ic sleeve” can be adjusted to diff-erent sizes of ear canals and also
 promotes airflow to prevent occlusion.This enables audiologists to do withoutear mold impressions and fit an off-the-shelf product that the patient can startwearing the same day. “This will be our gift to one luckycustomer. There won’t be any purchasenecessary to enter our drawing and theonly requirement will be a hearing check which we’re offering absolutely free,”said Rosengarten. Delphos Hearing AidCenter’s phone number is 419-692-7600and persons can call the office to scheduletheir hearing test which will automaticallyenter them in the drawing.

COLUMBUS (AP) — TheOhio Parole Board on Thursdayrecommended mercy for a con-demned killer of two scheduledto die in June, a relatively rarestep by a board that generallysides with the state in its rul-ings.The final decision on wheth-er to spare Shawn Hawkins nowrests with Gov. John Kasich,who has allowed three execu-tions to proceed since becominggovernor but has yet to decideon a case where his parole boardrecommended in favor of theinmate.The board by a 7-0 vote saidit had no doubt Shawn Hawkinswas involved in the 1989 slayingof two men in Cincinnati andlikely shot the men but said itwas troubled by many aspects of his conviction.Hawkins, 43, was sentencedto die for the slayings of 18-year-old Terrance Richard and19-year-old Diamond Marteen.If granted clemency, his newsentence would be life withoutthe possibility of parole.
