Warnings credited in tornado outbreak
WOODWARD, Okla. —When a tornado shrouded indarkness and wrapped in raindropped quickly from the skyabove this northwest Oklahomatown, many residents relied ontelevision weathermen to warnthem of impending devastation.Others learned of the monstertwister from neighbors or callsfrom frantic relatives.One backup they couldn’tcount on was the town’s 20outdoor tornado sirens, whichwere knocked out when light-ning struck a tower used toactivate the warning system.The storms, which causedmultiple outbreaks of severeweather most of Sunday fromKansas to Minnesota, werepart of an exceptionally strongsystem tracked by the NationalWeather Service’s StormPrediction Center in Norman,Okla., which specializes in tor-nado forecasting. The centertook the unusual step of warn-ing people more than 24 hoursin advance of a possible “high-end, life-threatening event.”In the end, only theWoodward tornado provedfatal. While it’s unknownwhether the disabled sirenscontributed to the toll inWoodward, residents andofficials in hard-hit areas of Kansas, Iowa and elsewherecredited days of urgent warn-ings from forecasters for sav-ing lives.“We can’t do this with everyevent,” said the prediction cen-ter’s Ken Miller, noting thatmany storm systems are notas easy to predict whether theywill be a potential threat to lifeand property.Miller said he was pleasedthe warnings were heeded.“We measure our successby how the public reacts,” hesaid. “Do they take precautionsseriously and act on them?”In south central Kansas,Sedgwick County EmergencyManagement Director RandyDuncan credited the dire lan-guage warnings for savinglives.“People become used tothose warnings. That is a dan-gerous complacency,” Duncansaid. “We need to break throughthe clutter of everyday noise toget people’s attention.”The warnings had LarryHill’s attention. The 72-year-old sifted Sunday throughglass and debris of his home.Hours earlier, Hill had bar-ricaded himself in a closet as atornado ripped the roof off hishome in the southwest Iowatown of Thurman. He kept aclose ear on their televisionas Saturday night approached,and had bought extra groceriesthe night before.“We’d been on the lookoutfor it for three days,” he said.“... We were as ready as wecould have been.”A National Weather Serviceofficial said a “month’s worth”of tornados were spottedSunday in Kansas. About100 homes were damaged ina Wichita mobile home, butno serious injuries or fatalitieswere reported.“We knew well ahead of time that this was going to beugly. People listened” to thewarnings, Sedgwick CountyCommissioner Tim Nortonsaid.The Woodward tornadohit after midnight and with-out warning from the town’sknocked out siren system.The state medical exam-iner’s office identified thevictims as Frank Hobbie andhis 5-year-old and 7-year-olddaughters, who died when thetornado hit the mobile homepark, and Darren Juul anda 10-year-old girl who diedwhen the home they were in afew miles away was hit. Officespokeswoman Amy Elliot saidno other details were avail-able but said a critically hurtchild was airlifted to a Texashospital.“Our thoughts and prayers just go out to the families that
Van Wert County electioncampaign costs counted
By ED GEBERTTimes Bulletin Editor
VAN WERT — All acrossthe country, the amount of money spent on political cam-paigns continues to increase.Whether federal or stateoffice, the expenses involvedare increasing and as well asthe willingness to spend.The same trend is true inVan Wert County elections.The recent primary race forcounty commissioner may bethe most expensive campaignin county history.There were two seats con-tested for commissioner onMarch 6. One race featuredtwo candidates — Stan Owensand Denzil Wortman. Theother contest had four candi-dates. That four-way race costthe candidates $27,000.While that figure isdwarfed by reports of presi-dential campaign spendingalong with candidates run-ning for the U. S. Houseof Representatives and theSenate, the 2012 spendinglisted on financial reports,which were due Friday at theBoard of Elections Office,showed greater spending atthe county level than in previ-ous years.Todd Wolfrum wasat the top of the list, withreported expenses paid of $8,546.76. Next was BillEvans, who reported expens-es of $7,085.56, followed byKim Brandt at $6,910.96 andPhil Baxter with spending at$4,575.12.The average spent in thefour-sided contest was morethan $6,750. Three of thecandidates spent more thanthe average. The campaignspending average in the othercommissioner’s race was just$2,300.The four-way race was wonby Wolfrum, with 38 percentcompared to Brandt at 29 per-cent, Evans at 22 percent andBaxter at 10 percent.The reports show Wolfrumspent about $4.40 for eachvote received, Brandt $4.70,Evans $6.35 and Baxter$8.70The Owens-Wortman con-test went to Owens with 77percent of the vote; however,Wortman outspent Owenshandily. Wortman’s reportshowed spending of $3,174.27while Owens spent $1,917.50for a total of just over $4,600.That figure showed Owensspending approximately 50cents per vote received whileWortman spent approximate-ly $2.82 per vote.The only other candidatein a county race to show anyexpenses was sheriff candi-date Tom Riggenbaugh, whospent just under $200 runningunopposed.In general, costs in VanWert County are lower thanin most areas of the country.For instance, county racesin 2010 in Dyer County,Tennessee, were much high-er. There, a pair of sheriff candidates spent more than$37,000 combined, an aver-age $18,500 each.A report from the Centerfor Responsive Politicsshowed that winners of con-gressional races in 2010 spent70 percent more than winnersdid in 2000. While the can-didate with the largest warchest is not guaranteed a win,wise spending in a campaigncan certainly give a candidatean advantage through adver-tising and public exposure.
Killer admits massacre,claims self-defense
By KARL RITTERThe Associated Press
OSLO, Norway — Witha defiant closed-fist salute, aright-wing fanatic admittedtoday to a bomb-and-shoot-ing massacre that killed 77people in Norway but pleadednot guilty to criminal charges,saying he was acting in self-defense.On the first day of his long-awaited trial, Anders BehringBreivik rejected the authorityof the court as it sought toassign responsibility for theJuly 22 attacks that shockedNorway and jolted the imageof terrorism in Europe.Dressed in a dark suit andsporting a thin beard, Breiviksmiled as a guard removedhis handcuffs in the crowdedcourt room. The 33-year-oldthen flashed his salute beforeshaking hands with prosecu-tors and court officials.“I don’t recognizeNorwegian courts becauseyou get your mandate fromthe Norwegian political par-ties who support multicultur-alism,” Breivik said in hisfirst comments to the court.Eight people were killedin Breivik’s July 22 bombingof Oslo’s government districtand 69 others were slain in hisshooting massacre at the left-leaning Labor Party’s youthcamp on Utoya island outsidethe capital. Breivik has saidthe attacks were necessary toprotect Norway from beingtaken over by Muslims.“I admit to the acts, butnot criminal guilt,” he told thecourt, insisting he had actedin self-defense.The key issue to beresolved during the 10-weektrial is the state of Breivik’smental health, which will

have lost their loved ones,especially the children,” saidOklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin,who declared a state of emer-gency Sunday after touring thedamage. “It’s always devastatingto hear about the loss of life of children.”Many residents in tornadoalley have grown up counting ontornado sirens to warn them whena twister has been spotted on theground, but emergency officialssay that can be one of the leastreliable methods, especially whena tornado hits at night.“An outdoor warning systemshould never be the only way oreven the primary way to receivea warning,” said Rick Smith, awarning coordination meteorolo-gist with the National WeatherService. “Our message that wepreach is you have to have sev-eral ways to receive a warning.”Curt and Andra Raymer hadtaken steps to prepare for thestorm, but thought they werein the clear when a televisionmeteorologist warned residentsto take cover just minutes beforethe storm hit.“We heard the sirens yester-day afternoon, and they blew for
40 minutes,” said Andra Raymer,44, as she picked through the
rubble of her home that was cov-ered with insulation, broken glassand splintered wood. “Last nightwhen this one came through, wedidn’t hear anything.”The couple and their dogstook shelter in an interior bath-room as the roof was lifted fromtheir home and smashed in theirbackyard.“We’re just lucky to be alive,”Curt Raymer said. “We walkedout into the street and just couldn’tbelieve it.”Emergency management offi-cials urged residents to take advan-tage of weather radios, smart-phones and television warningsto keep them up to speed whenweather turns dangerous. Sirensare not designed to wake residentswho are sleeping or to penetratethe thick insulation in today’shomes, said Albert Ashwood, thedirector of Oklahoma’s Office of Emergency Management.“Sirens are referred to as out-door warning systems, and that’swhat they’re there for: to tellpeople who are outdoors to comeinside and find out what’s goingon,” Ashwood said.

decide whether he is sent toprison or into psychiatric care.Anxious to prove he is notinsane, Brevik will call right-wing extremists and radicalIslamists to testify during thetrial, to show that others alsoshare his view of clashingcivilizations.Norway’s NRK televisionwas broadcasting parts of thetrial live but was not allowedto show Breivik’s testimony.During today’s openingsession, he remained stone-faced and motionless as pros-ecutors read the indictment onthe terror and murder charges,with descriptions of how eachvictim died, and when theyexplained how he preparedfor the attacks.But Breivik suddenlybecame emotional when pros-ecutors showed an anti-Mus-lim video that he had postedon YouTube before the kill-ing spree, wiping away tearson his cheek with tremblinghands.After a lunch break, Breivikwas again expressionless ashe watched prosecutors pres-ent surveillance footage of the Oslo explosion. The blastripped through the high-risebuilding that housed govern-ment headquarters, blowingout windows and filling sur-rounding streets with smokeand debris.He didn’t flinch as pros-ecutors played a three-minuterecording of a young woman’sfrantic phone call to policefrom Utoya.“Shots have been fired,”the woman, who survived themassacre, said with panic inher voice. “I’m pretty surethat there are many injured.”More than a dozen shotsin close succession couldbe heard as the woman fellsilent.“Are you still there?” thepolice officer asked.“Yes,” she whispered. Shefell silent again, breathinginto the phone as more shotscracked in the background.Breivik also announcedhe doesn’t recognize theauthority of Judge WencheElisabeth Arntzen, becausehe said she is friends with thesister of former NorwegianPrime Minister and LaborParty leader Gro HarlemBrundtland.The anti-Muslim militantdescribed himself as a writer,currently working from pris-on, when asked by the judgefor his employment status.He claims he targeted thegovernment headquarters inOslo and the youth camp tostrike against the left-leaningpolitical forces he blamesfor allowing immigration inNorway.If deemed mentally com-petent, Breivik would facea maximum prison sentenceof 21 years or an alternatecustody arrangement underwhich the sentence is pro-longed for as long as aninmate is deemed a dangerto society.While Norway has a legalprinciple of preventive self-defense, that doesn’t applyto Breivik’s case, said JarlBorgvin Doerre, a legal expertwho has written a book on theconcept.
