WASHINGTON —Sweltering temperatures thatare challenging records acrossthe nation and contributed toseveral deaths have triggeredheat advisories and warn-ings today in Philadelphia,Washington and the mid-Atlantic region.The National WeatherService is predicting a heatwave with temperatures near-ing 100 degrees. Forecasterssaid it will feel even hotterwith high humidity and a ridgeof high pressure parked overthe East Coast and Southeaststates through Thursday.“We’re forecasting thehigh to be pretty close tothe record” of 98 degrees setfor Washington in 1999, saidBrandon Peloquin, a mete-orologist with the NationalWeather Service. The normalhigh temperature this time of year in the nation’s capital isabout 82 degrees.“As you can see that’squite a bit higher than normalthis time of year,” Peloquinsaid. “I’m not sure it reallysays much about what thesummer is going to be like.”Still, the official arrivalof summer is still about twoweeks away.High temperatures con-tributed to the deaths of fourelderly people in Marylandand Tennessee in recentdays.The National WeatherService issued a heat advisoryfor the Baltimore-Washingtonregion and a higher-levelexcessive heat warning forPhiladelphia, where similartemperatures are forecast.Heat advisories also wereissued for parts of Ohio,Indiana and Michigan.Air quality alerts alsowere issued across the region,including in New Jersey.Officials said ozone levelscould cause problems forchildren, the elderly andthose with respiratory prob-lems. The state’s HealthDepartment said men ages65 to 84 years of age are thelargest group hospitalized forheat exposure each year.Public schools inPhiladelphia and parts of New Jersey cut their schooldays short in response to ris-ing temperatures.

DELPHOS — TheDelphos City Schools’ Boardof Education and the DelphosEducation Association (DEA)has reached a tentative agree-ment and the DEA membershave ratified the agreement.The board is expected toconsider the agreement at itsregular board meeting at 8p.m. Thursday.“The negotiations ses-sions were marked by coop-eration and centered on dis-cussions about students aswe jointly worked throughthe funding situation facingthe Delphos City Schools,”Superintendent Jeff Pricesaid in a press release. “I amespecially appreciative of thecooperation and effort madeby members of both teamsto reach a tentative agree-ment in the present economicclimate.”The major points of thecontract include:
Health Care:
The district will offer aMedium Deductible Plan(MDHD) or a High DeductiblePlan (HDHP). The Board/Employee split for either planwill be 85/15 percent withthe district paying 85 per-cent. The HDHP will qualifyemployees for a $2,000 HSAon a family/$1,000 HSA on asingle plan.
Zero-percent increase inthe base pay. Step-pay freezein year one, 1/2-increment forstep increase in year two, andfull step in year three of theagreement.
Dental Insurance:
Board share 85 percent andemployee share 15 percent forsingle and family plans.
Supplemental Pay:
Reduction of 10 percentacross the board ($16,000savings diverted to offset stu-dent Pay-to-Participate (PtP)costs. Lowers the cost forstudent participation by $50/student.)Elimination of $200 sti-pend to offset cost of licensesand continuing educationcredits. Reduction in numberof professional days by twodays and addition of personalleave by one day.
Teacher Training andRace to the Top:
The superintendent mayadd up to four days to thecalendar in each year of thecontract for teachers to attendprofessional developmenttraining. Stipends for atten-dance will be available to bepaid out of Race to the Top(RttT) grant.Other items on the agendafor Thursday include approv-al of the salary schedule forclassified staff for the 2011-12 school year and a changeto the 2011-12 calendar con-cerning the date of gradua-tion.Price intends to recom-mend the board accept theagreement.“The teachers already rati-fied this and I will recom-mend the board accept it. Thiswill allow us to at least main-tain the present programmingover the next three years,”he said. “The teachers under-stand the gravity of the situ-ation; they knew there weregoing to be reductions in payand they stepped up to worktoward an agreement. We’rereally below what we con-sider to be the standard foreducation in the areas of com-puter science and elementaryeducation with the reductionof three teachers, not having ascience teacher and certainlythe elimination of some of ourvocational programming.”If accepted Thursday, theagreement will not cause thedistrict to ask for lessmoney from taxpayers in thefall.“We are still in need of additional revenue with alevy on the ballot in August.We’re going for a half-per-cent income tax and we arein need of that revenue tolook at re-establishing elimi-nated programming down theroad and re-establish a soundstudent/teacher ratio in theelementary grades,” Pricesaid.
“The teachersalready ratifiedthis and I willrecommend theboard accept it.This will allow usto at least main-tain the presentprogrammingover the nextthree years.”

TRIPOLI, Libya —Moammar Gadhafi stooddefiant Tuesday in the faceof the heaviest and most pun-ishing NATO airstrikes yet— at least 40 thunderous day-light attacks that sent plumesof smoke billowing abovethe Libyan leader’s centralTripoli compound.In late afternoon and asthe strikes continued, Libyanstate television broadcast anaudio address from Gadhafi,who denounced NATO andthe rebels challenging hisrule. He vowed never to sur-render.“We will not kneel!” heshouted.Alliance officials havewarned for days they wereincreasing the scope andintensity of their air cam-paign to oust Gadhafi aftermore than 40 years in power.NATO is backing the rebelinsurgency, which has seizedswaths of eastern Libyaand pockets in the regime’sstronghold in the west sinceit began in February, inspiredby uprisings elsewhere in theArab world.Some 6,850 people, nearlyall of them Libyans, havestreamed across the bor-der from Libya to Tunisiasince Monday to flee theNATO raids as well as fight-ing between the rebels andgovernment forces, accord-ing to the Tunisian DefenseMinistry.It couldn’t be confirmedwhether Gadhafi’s some10-minute speech was a livephone call or an audio record-ing, but it appeared to takestate television by surprise.The sound was hastily adjust-ed to make it louder“We will not surrender:we only have one choice —to the end! Death, victory, itdoes not matter, we are notsurrendering!” Gadhafi said.Highlighting his anger, hecalled the rebels “bastards.”As he spoke, reporters inTripoli heard the whooshingsound of low-flying militarycraft again, followed by sev-eral explosions. Pro-Gadhafiloyalists also fired celebra-tory gunfire in the air.Gadhafi was last seen ina brief appearance on statetelevision in late May. He hasmostly been in hiding sinceNATO strikes in April target-ed one of his homes. Libyanofficials said one of his sons,Saif al-Arab, and three of hisgrandchildren were killed inthat strike.

Martinez-Nunez madein phone interviews withReynoldsburg police, TheColumbus Dispatch reported.“His statements were thecornerstone of our case,” saidAssistant Prosecutor MarkWodarcyk, who had moved todismiss the charges.Martinez-Nunez, 31, hadbeen charged with nine counts,including aggravated murderand abuse of a corpse in thedeath of Armondo CasillasCastanedo, whose bodywas found in a parked carin the Columbus suburb of Reynoldsburg in August 2009.Police think Castanedo, a36-year-old illegal immigrant,was killed a few days earlierin a feud over drug territory.An autopsy determined that hewas asphyxiated.Martinez-Nunez was a sus-pect when he was arrested bythe border patrol as he triedto re-enter the country ille-gally in Texas in February2010, the newspaper reported.Reynoldsburg police con-ducted a phone interview withMartinez-Nunez from Texaswith the help of a Spanishinterpreter in Reynoldsburg,but a defense interpreter foundthat the first interpreter gaveMartinez-Nunez incompleteMiranda warnings of hisrights.
