USPS to default on second $5B payment
By HOPE YEN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The U.S. Postal Service, on the brink of default on a second multibillion-dollar payment it can’t afford to pay, is sounding a new cautionary note that having squeezed out all the cost savings within its power, the mail agency’s viability now lies almost entirely with Congress. In an interview, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said the mail agency will be forced to miss the $5.6 billion payment due to the Treasury on Sunday, its second default in as many months. Congress has left Washington until after the November elections, without approving a postal fix. For more than a year, the Postal Service has been seeking legislation that would allow it to eliminate Saturday mail delivery and reduce its $5 billion annual payment for future retiree health benefits. Since the House failed to act, the post office says it’s been seeking to reassure anxious customers that service will not be disrupted, even with cash levels running perilously low. “Absolutely, we would be profitable right now,” Donahoe told The Associated Press, when asked whether congressional delays were to blame for much of the postal losses, expected to reach a record $15 billion this year. He said the two missed payments totaling $11.1 billion for future retiree health benefits — payments ordered by Congress in 2006 that no other government agency or business is required to make — along with similar expenses make up the bulk of the annual loss. The remainder is nearly $3 billion in losses, he said, which would Delphos, Ohio have been offset by savings if the service had been allowed to move to five-day mail delivery. Donahoe said the post office will hit a low point in cash next month but avert immediate bankruptcy due to a series of retirement incentives, employee reductions and boosts in productivity among remaining staff that saved nearly $2 billion over the past year. But the post office has few tools left to build its revenue, he said, without either having to pay upfront money it lacks or get approval from postal unions or Congress. “We’ve done a lot to reduce cost out of our system,” Donahoe said. “The problem now is this: There’s nowhere to go.” Postal unions also say Congress is mostly to blame for losses, but disagree that a reduction to five-day delivery is an answer. “What is needed is for Congress to undo the harm it has done with the prefunding mandate and for the Postal Service to develop a balanced plan moving forward,” said Fredric Rolando, president of the National Association of Letter Carriers. He said cutting Saturday delivery would in particular hurt rural residents and the elderly who depend more heavily on the mail for prescription drugs and other goods. The Postal Service last month failed to pay $5.5 billion, its first default ever on a payment. While it will miss a second payment Sunday, it expects to make a $1.4 billion payment due to the Labor Department on Oct. 15 for workers’ compensation. Cash levels are expected to hit a low after that labor payment before rising again due to increased volume from holiday and election mail, including ballots for early voting.

One Tank Trip
Take a small trip to view one of mankind’s biggest accomplishments
to give visitors a feel for what walking in space is like, looking around to see only stars for as far as the eye can see. So much space history is represented at the Armstrong Air and Space Museum. There is a replica of the 1957 Soviet satellite Sputnik, along with the spacesuit worn by Armstrong while aboard Gemini VIII and another spacesuit from the Apollo days. Replica capsules from both Apollo and Gemini give people a chance to compare the progress made in just a few short steps at NASA. Also inside the museum is a real piece of space exploration — a moon rock collected by the Apollo 11 crew. You can also get an upclose look at a model of the Saturn V rocket which was the power to put Armstrong and the other Apollo astronauts beyond earth’s orbit. Armstrong not only flew spacecraft, but also other vehicles like jets, gliders and helicopters. An Aeronca Champion in which Armstrong learned to fly at the age of 15 at an airfield near Wapakoneta, is proudly displayed, as is an F5D Skylancer experimental airplane which he also flew as a test pilot. The museum was proposed on the very day Armstong’s step on the lunar surface was made. Ohio Gov. James Rhodes proposed the museum, not just as an honor for the Ohio native, but also for all Ohioans who have attempted to defy gravity, and to pro-
BY ED GEBERT DHI correspondent WAPAKONETA — The term “American hero” is tossed around a lot but it is so appropriate in describing Wapakoneta native Neil Armstrong. The man who was first to set foot on the moon has a much larger story than just that one small step. Since Armstrong’s death on Aug. 25, interest has been renewed in the career of the pilot and astronaut. In his hometown is an attraction that not only takes in much of Armstrong’s career, but also highlights many of the accomplishments of this country’s early days in space. The Armstrong Air and Space Museum is open yearround just off Interstate 75 near the U.S. 33 interchange. Within the confines of the grounds are many fascinating exhibits and interactive displays that help youth and adults gain a greater knowledge and appreciation

for American heroes like Armstrong. Very popular exhibits include the Gemini VIII capsule which served as Armstrong’s first spacecraft. He and David Scott conducted the first space rendezvous and docking in 1966. Visitors have a chance to see the capsule and to experience what it was like to perform the docking procedure with a simulator. Another simulator mimics the steps to land the Apollo lunar module on the lunar surface. Or try landing the space shuttle in yet another simulator. The museum itself is designed to be more than a static museum. Sound and motion are everywhere with the three simulators, 10 audio/visual elements, and seven interactive exhibits. The Astro Theater offers a movie about the landing of the Eagle in 1969 and the night sky projected 56 feet high onto the dome ceiling. The Infinity Room is designed
vide a history of the space program. Of the $1 million originally set aside to construct the museum, more than half was raised by the citizens of Wapakoneta who wished to honor their native son. The museum opened its doors for the first time exactly three years after Armstrong’s giant “leap for mankind.” The museum remains dedicated to the state’s aeronautical history as well as Ohio’s contributions to aviation and space exploration from the early days
through current times. The cost is reasonable also. Adult admission is $8 with children 6-12 just $4, and group rates are available. The museum is open from Labor Day through Memorial Day Tuesday Saturday from 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12-5 p.m. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the museum is also open on Monday from 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. However, the museum is always closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

For The Record Ohio AG in Celina to renew Man behind anti-Muslim focus on unsolved homicides film ordered new initiative about unsolved homicides. He noted that while every murder is a tragedy, such jailed crimes hit rural areas especially
hard due to the unexpectedness of the events. The database was actually begun several years ago by BCI, but the process has been slow. At present only 166 murder cases are on the website, but that will soon change with the addition of 445 cold cases from the files of the Dayton Police Department and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. “We have a long, long way to go,” conceded DeWine. Currently, the crimes range from 2011 murders like the Grube case back to the 1964 shooting death of a Hamilton County gas station night attendant. DeWine is asking for the rest of Ohio’s law enforcement agencies to enter information on their unsolved homicide cases into the database, a process DeWine said takes only about ten minutes. “I am sending out a letter today to 17,000 law enforcement partners, every sheriff in the state and every chief of police, asking them to assist us, assist themselves, and assist the public by entering this information,” the attorney general declared. Since participation is purely voluntary, he knows that not every single case will make it into the database anytime soon, but he wants to get as many entered as possible to try to generate more tips and more information. He pointed out that BCI could help local agencies with special investigations units, a crime scene unit to identify evidence for submission to the lab, a crime lab to analyze evidence, a criminal intelligence unit to digitize and preserve case files, and a cyber crimes unit to examine electronic devices like cell phones. In addition, DeWine said his office plans to highlight one cold case each month, giving it special publicity through the media and petitioning the public for any possible new leads. He believes help can be found in a more complete database. “We want to dramatically expand that database,” he declared. “Those of us in law enforcement have an obligation to the victims, to the victims’ families, to do everything in our power to solve these cases.” By GREG RISLING The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — A federal judge on Thursday determined that a California man behind a crudely produced anti-Islamic video that inflamed parts of the Middle East is a flight risk and ordered him detained. Citing a lengthy pattern of deception, U.S. Central District Chief Magistrate Judge Suzanne Segal said Nakoula Basseley Nakoula should be held after officials said he violated his probation from a 2010 check fraud conviction. “The court has a lack of trust in this defendant at this time,” Segal said. Nakoula, 55, was arrested Thursday. He had eight probation violations, including lying to his probation officers and using aliases, and he might face new charges that carry a maximum two-year prison term, authorities said. Nakoula will remain behind bars until another hearing where a judge will rule if he broke the terms of his probation. Nakoula wore beige pants and a collared shirt when he was led into the courtroom handcuffed and shackled. He appeared relaxed, smiling at one point before the hearing and conferring with his attorney. After his 2010 conviction, Nakoula was sentenced to 21 months in prison and was barred from using computers or the Internet for five years without approval from his probation officer. In July, a 14-minute trailer for the film “Innocence of Muslims” was posted on YouTube, leading to protests around the Middle East. Nakoula, a Christian originally from Egypt, went into hiding after he was identified as the man behind the trailer, which depicts Muhammad as a womanizer, religious fraud and child molester. In court Thursday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Dugdale said Nakoula was flight risk, partially because of the uproar over the film. The violence in the Middle East broke out Sept. 11 and has spread since, killing dozens, including Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. “He has every incentive to disappear,” Dugdale said. The hearing had an unusual wrinkle as the news media were banned from the courtroom, and reporters had to watch the proceedings on a TV in a different courthouse a couple blocks away. Court officials didn’t give a reason for the decision. Nakoula’s attorney Steven Seiden sought to have the hearing closed and his client released on $10,000 bail. He argued Nakoula has checked in with his probation officer frequently and made no attempts to leave Southern California. Seiden was concerned that Nakoula would be in danger in federal prison because of Muslim inmates, but prosecutors said he likely would be placed in protective custody. The full story about Nakoula and the video still isn’t known. The movie was made last year by a man who called himself Sam Bacile. After the violence erupted, a man who identified himself as Bacile spoke to media outlets, including The Associated Press, took credit for the film and said it was meant to portray the truth about Muhammad and Islam, which he called a cancer.

17-year-old pleads guilty to threatening tweets
HAMILTON (AP) — A 17-year-old southern Ohio high school student has pleaded guilty to sending out tweets threatening that weapons and explosives would be used at school. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the Hamilton teen pleaded guilty Thursday to a reduced felony charge of attempted panic. He had been charged with felony counts of making a terroristic threat and inducing panic. He was among three Edgewood High School students arrested for allegedly making threats of violence in late August. The other two students faced only menacing charges. None of the teens had access to weapons. The boy remains at a county juvenile detention facility pending his sentencing hearing on Wednesday. Possible sentences range from probation to six months incarceration.

CIRCLEVILLE (AP) — Authorities say three young children were found living in a central Ohio home where two methamphetamine labs were operating. Police in Circleville, south of Columbus, said the drug operations were found Thursday night when officers were assisting with a probation check. Police said a man and a woman at the home admitted they were making meth there. WBNS-TV reports that children ages 3, 5 and 10 were living in the home and were exposed to the chemicals. They were removed by social services. The mother and her boyfriend, who is the father of two of the children, were arrested.

At least 2 Ohio boards set early voting hours
By ANN SANNER The Associated Press COLUMBUS — At least two Ohio elections boards have set their own hours during disputed early voting days, as the battleground state waits for a federal appeals court to sort out whether people can cast an early ballot on the three days before Election Day. Jefferson County in eastern Ohio and Wayne County in the northeast have set their own early-voting hours for the Nov. 6 general election. Elections board members in Summit County, where Akron is the county seat, also voted on election hours but it was unclear if the vote counted. The Obama campaign and Democrats sued earlier this year over part of the new Ohio law that cuts off early voting on the Friday evening before a Tuesday election, except for military personnel and Ohio voters living overseas. U.S. District Judge Peter Economus in August issued a preliminary injunction, saying the law was unconstitutional in changing the in-person early voting deadline. The state appealed Economus’ ruling. Economus also said he expected Secretary of State Jon Husted to direct all county election boards to maintain a consistent schedule on those three days. Husted initially banned all of Ohio’s 88 county boards from establishing hours while the appeal process is under way. He later rescinded that directive after he was ordered to appear before the judge. Ohio is among 32 states, plus the District of Columbia, that allow voters to cast early ballots in person without having to give reasons. Ohio’s previous law allowed early
President sets next Ohio visits Oct. 4-5
COLUMBUS (AP) — President Barack Obama will return to Ohio next week in the aftermath of the first presidential debate with Republican Mitt Romney. The Obama campaign said Thursday the president will stay in Colorado for a campaign event the day after the Oct. 3 evening debate at the University of Denver, then leave one battleground state for another. Obama will have an Oct. 4 evening rally in Columbus, and a rally Friday in Cleveland. No other details have been released yet. Both Obama and Romney campaigned in Ohio on Wednesday, with recent polls indicating the Democratic president has widened his lead in a state that could be crucial for Romney. Romney and running mate Paul Ryan appeared at a series of Ohio events over three days this week.

voting on the three days before a Tuesday election. In Jefferson County, the elections board voted to set tentative early voting hours for the Saturday before Nov. 6. The time is in line with the board’s normal business hours for that day, said Diane Gribble, the board’s director. “Whether we’re voting or we’re not, we’re here,” Gribble said, adding the office would comply with any court ruling or Husted directive. “This is just trying to cover all of the bases.” Wayne County elections officials held a special meeting to set hours on the Saturday and Monday before Election Day. The two Democrats and two Republicans on the board approved the hours without any objections, said B. Jean Mohr, the board’s chair. In Summit County, two Democrats on the board moved to set early voting hours during the disputed days while one of their GOP counterparts is recovering in the hospital from a car accident. Ray Weber, the lone attending Republican, left Tuesday’s meeting in protest. It wasn’t clear whether the 2-0 vote to approve early voting hours on the three days stands. The county prosecutor’s office said the board had a quorum at the time of the vote because Weber was still in the room. Husted’s office disagreed. Weber said Thursday that the topic should have been on the board agenda and not brought up “by ambush.” “Unless the court sets the hours, Secretary of State Husted will set the hours ... not the Summit County Democratic Party, or even the Summit County Board of Elections,” said Weber, an Akron lawyer.

“Sometimes I think we Americans are the loneliest people in the world. To be sure, we hunger for the power of affection, the self-acceptance that gives life. It is the oldest and strongest hunger — Sherwood Anderson, American author and poet (1876-1941). in the world. But hungering is not enough.”
Romney decries military cuts; Obama talking jobs
By DAVID ESPO and KASIE HUNT The Associated Press VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — President Barack Obama pledged to create many more jobs and “make the middle class secure again” in a campaign-closing appeal on Thursday — more than five weeks before Election Day — to voters already casting ballots in large numbers. Republican Mitt Romney, focusing on threats beyond American shores, accused the commander in chief of backing dangerous cuts in defense spending. “The idea of cutting our military is unthinkable and devastating. And when I become president we will not,” declared the challenger, struggling to reverse a slide in opinion polls. Romney and Obama campaigned a few hundred miles apart in Virginia, 40 days before their long race ends. They’ll be in much closer quarters next Wednesday in Denver — for the first of three presidential debates on the campaign calendar and perhaps the challenger’s best remaining chance to change the trajectory of the campaign. In a race where the economy is the dominant issue, there was a fresh sign of national weakness as the Commerce Department lowered its earlier estimate of tepid growth last spring. Romney and his allies seized on the news as evidence that Obama’s policies aren’t working. There was good news for the president in the form of a survey by The Washington Post and Kaiser Family Foundation suggesting he has gained ground among older voters after a month-long ad war over Republican plans for Medicare. The pace also was quickening in the struggle for control of the U.S. Senate. Prominent Republican conservatives pledged financial and political support for Rep. Todd Akin in Missouri. That complicated Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill’s bid for re-election. But it also left Romney, running mate Paul Ryan and the rest of the GOP hierarchy in an awkward position after they tried unsuccessfully to push Akin off the ballot in the wake of his controversial comments about rape. Farther west, in Arizona, Republican Rep. Jeff Flake unleashed an ad calling Democratic rival Richard Carmona “Barack Obama’s rubberstamp.” It was not meant as a compliment in a state seemingly headed Romney’s way, a response for sure to Democratic claims that the Senate contest was unexpectedly close. In the presidential race, early voting has already begun in Virginia as well as South Dakota, Idaho and Vermont. It began during the day in Wyoming as well as in Iowa, like Virginia one of the most highly contested states. Early voters had formed a line a half block long in Des Moines before the elections office opened at 8 a.m. Campaigning in Virginia Beach, Obama said, “It’s time for a new economic patriotism, an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle

World powers open to more nuke talks with Iran
WASHINGTON (AP) — World powers decided Thursday to lay the groundwork for another round of negotiations with Iran over its disputed nuclear program, a senior U.S. official said, but they want a significantly improved offer from the Islamic republic. Neither the U.S. nor any of its international partners was ready to abandon diplomacy in favor of military or other actions, as Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu has advocated. The new hope for negotiated end to Iran’s decadelong nuclear standoff came after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met with the foreign ministers of Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia — powers that have sought, over several rounds of talks, to persuade Iran to halt its production of material that could be used in nuclear weapons. All such efforts have failed so far. The latest stab at a diplomatic compromise collapsed this summer after Iran proposed to stop producing higher-enriched uranium in exchange for a suspension in international sanctions, which Clinton has termed a “nonstarter.” The U.S. official said Iran would have to bring a much better offer to the table this time, but stressed that nations were seeing some signs for optimism and that diplomacy remained “far and away the preferred way to deal with this issue.” Catherine Ashton, the European Union’s top diplomat, who has been spearheading the international diplomacy with Iran, was instructed to reach out to Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili. Still, no date was set for the possible resumption of the so-called P5+1 talks with Iran, said the U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she wasn’t authorized to comment publicly about the closed-doors meeting at the United Nations. After looking for a diplomatic solution there, Clinton met later Thursday with Netanyahu one-on-one for 75 minutes at a New York hotel where she was expected to hear the alternative argument for possible military action. The U.S. official said they agreed that Iran must be prevented from becoming a nuclear power, without going into details. Their meeting occurred just hours after the Israeli leader warned in an address to the U.N. General Assembly that Iran will have enough enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon by next summer. Pulling out a red marker while holding a poster depicting a cartoon-like bomb that measured Iran’s nuclear progress, Netanyahu drew a “red line” across the second-to-last stage of nuclear development, reminding everyone of his demand for President Barack Obama to declare when the U.S. might attack Iran. Obama has rejected the demand. It is getting “late, very late” to stop the Iranian nuclear threat, Netanyahu said at the United Nations.
Older voters look beyond Medicare, Social Security
By JOSH LEDERMAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Get in line, Medicare and Social Security. Seniors, like just about everyone else, have money on their minds. Who wins the trust of seniors, a group that votes at a higher rate than any other, will be a deciding factor in the presidential election. That should be good news for Mitt Romney, because those 65 and older have backed the Republican candidate in both of the last two presidential elections. But President Barack Obama has been pounding Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, on their plan for Medicare. Those attacks are starting to bear fruit for Obama, who is gaining ground among seniors in two key battlegrounds: Florida and Ohio. Still, Romney has the edge nationally among seniors — in no small part thanks to seniors’ concerns about Obama’s handling of the economy. Nowhere will the senior vote be as powerful or as By HOPE YEN The Associated Press prominent as in Florida, where Romney and Obama are competing fiercely. “It’s not just the cookie cutter that every senior here is totally dependent on Social Security and Medicare,” said Susan MacManus, a political scientist at the University of South Florida. “As the FDR generation has passed and generational replacement has occurred, you get a more divided senior electorate.” More seniors say the economy is extremely important to their vote than Medicare, says a poll released Thursday by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. A recent Associated Press-GfK poll shows 7 in 10 seniors say taxes and the federal deficit are important to them. Even for those well into retirement, a feeble economy affects older Americans in ways you might not realize. Many have had to bail out adult children who have lost their jobs and turned to their aging parents for help. And those who lived through the Great Depression as children relate intimately to the perils of an over-indebted nation. Just ask Dominic Santoro,
class.” It was a line straight from the two-minute television commercial his campaign released overnight. He said that if re-elected he would back policies to create a million new manufacturing jobs, help businesses double exports and give tax breaks to companies that “invest in America, not ship jobs overseas.” He pledged to cut oil imports in half while doubling the fuel efficiency of cars and trucks, make sure there are 100,000 new teachers trained in math and science, cut the growth of college tuition in half and expand student aid “so more Americans can afford it.” He also touted a “balanced plan to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion,” but he included $1 trillion in reductions that already have taken place, and he took credit for saving half of the funds budgeted for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that no longer are needed. Obama also said he would “ask the wealthy to pay a little more,” a reference to the tax increase he favors on incomes over $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples. It is perhaps his most fundamental disagreement on policy with Romney, who wants to extend expiring tax cuts at all levels, including the highest. Obama’s campaign put out a second, scathing commercial during the day based on Romney’s recorded comments from last May that 47 percent of Americans don’t pay income taxes and feel they are victims entitled to government benefits. Romney added that as a candidate his job is not to worry about them.
Student debt stretches to record 1 in 5 households
WASHINGTON — With college enrollment growing, student debt has stretched to a record number of U.S. households — nearly 1 in 5 — with the biggest burdens falling on the young and poor. The analysis by the Pew Research Center found that 22.4 million households, or 19 percent, had college debt in 2010. That is double the share in 1989, and up from 15 percent in 2007, just prior to the recession — representing the biggest three-year increase in student debt in more than two decades. The increase was driven by higher tuition costs as well as rising college enrollment during the economic downturn. The biggest jumps occurred in households at the two extremes of the income distribution. More well-off families are digging deeper into their pockets to pay for costly private colleges, while lower-income people in search of higher-wage jobs are enrolling in community colleges, public universities and other schools as a way to boost their resumes. Because of the sluggish economy, fewer college students than before are able to settle into full-time careers immediately upon graduation, contributing to a jump in debt among lower-income households as the young adults take on part-time jobs or attend graduate school, according to Pew. As a share of household income, the debt burden was the greatest for the poorest 20 percent of households, or those making less than $21,044. In all, 40 percent of U.S. households headed by someone younger than age 35 owed college debt, the highest share of any age group. “Comparing the debt to their economic resources, the lowest-income fifth of households are the ones experiencing the greatest stresses,” said Richard Fry, a senior economist at Pew who analyzed the numbers. Noting that college enrollment has continued to climb since 2010, Fry added: “Until college enrollment peaks, I would not expect the amount
an 81-year-old retiree from Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., who said it’s different for seniors than it is for younger Americans, who have years to make up what was lost during the recession. “That’s very nice, but what about the poor senior citizen that’s no longer working and can’t replace that money?” said Santoro, who plans to vote for Romney. But if seniors’ concerns extend beyond entitlements, those seeking the White House don’t seem to have caught on. Obama and Ryan both hewed closely to themes of Medicare and Social Security in their speeches last week to an AARP summit in New Orleans. Ryan, who was loudly booed for vowing to repeal “Obamacare,” offered assurances that he and Romney wouldn’t alter Medicare for those in or near retirement. “Medicare is a promise, and we will honor it,” Ryan said. “A Romney-Ryan administration will protect and strengthen Medicare — for my mom’s generation and for my kids and yours.” of outstanding student debt to level off.” The study released Wednesday is based on the Survey of Consumer Finances, conducted every three years and sponsored by the Federal Reserve. The numbers are as of 2010, the latest available for that survey. Separate Fed data have pointed to subsequent increases in student loans since 2010 that totaled $914 billion in the April-June quarter, but don’t provide demographic breakdowns on who shoulders the biggest burdens. Both President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger in this year’s election, Mitt Romney, have been seeking to court young voters with differing visions on how to address rising tuition and growing college debt. Obama wants to make tax credits for college expenses permanent and expand Pell grants for lower-earning families. Romney says that making government the direct source of federal student loans has not worked and simply drives tuition higher. He stresses the need to curb college costs.

Lady Wildcats get Lady Cardinals sweep Blue Jays shutout on the pitch
By JIM METCALFE
CONVOY — Both Jefferson and Crestview have girls soccer teams have had struggles with a lack of numbers this fall. The two Northwest Conference foes met up Thursday night at Crestview High School and the visiting Wildcats pitched a shutout, beating the Lady Knights 3-0. The Lady Wildcats (4-80, 2-2-0 NWC) dominated the shooting 26-11, 24-7 ongoal. Senior Crestview (2-7-2, 1-3-0 NWC) keeper Darcci Swager nabbed 17 saves versus five for Lady Wildcat senior Paige Miller. “This was our best match by far this year; it was our most complete match. We were passing and shooting well because we were looking up when we did it,” Jefferson coach Josiah Stober noted. “We moved the ball from side to side as well as we have all year. These are the things we’ve been working on all season and you can see the improvement today.” Crestview coach Melissa Mefferd sees a team that has run out of gas this week. “We only had 16 girls to begin with and we have had some injuries and sickness this week. We’re worn down right this week,” Mefferd began. “We didn’t have a lot of energy today; we didn’t have it today. These girls have played a lot minutes over the season and it’s taken a toll.” With the wind in the first half, the Wildcats took advantage in pressing their attack forward. They dominated most of the proceedings in the offensive end and had numerous chances to get on the board. Their best chances came at 37:50 when sophomore Bailey Miller got control of a corner kick and had a 10-yarder that Crestview junior Courtney Grote prevented from crossing the goal line; at 18:42, when sophomore Kylee Haehn had a great chance from 10 yards but Swager deflected and finally controlled; at 7:27, when sophomore Elisabeth Miller fired from just outside the 18-yard box on the right side deflected away by the keeper; and 4:40, when Swager again denied a free kick by senior Jenna Moreo.
Lady Bearcats get the best of Jeffcats SPENCERVILLE — Jefferson’s volleyballers were seeking to even their mark at .500 in the Northwest Conference as they visited Spencerville Thursday night. The Lady Wildcats couldn’t do so, falling 25-7, 25-18, 25-27, 25-22. Leading Jefferson (7-9, 2-4 NWC) were junior Rileigh Stockwell (4 aces, 3 kills, 4 digs), junior Katie Goergens (7 kills, 3 blocks), senior Fallon Van Dyke (5 kills) and sophomore Brooke Culp (13 assists). Topping the Lady Bearcats were senior Shelby Mulholland (6 aces, 8 kills, 18 digs, 3 stuffblocks), senior Abby Freewalt (13 kills, 29 digs) and sophomore Schylar Miller (4 aces, 27 assists, 22 digs). “The girls played as a whole tonight and we are very proud of their hard work,” Bearcat coach Kari Wicker noted. “After losing game 3 by two and getting down in the fourth, the ladies picked themselves up and pushed hard for each and every point all the way to game point to win game 4. We plan on taking this momentum into their game on Monday vs. Temple Christian.” In the junior varsity match, Spencerville won 20-25, 25-14, 25-22. Spencerville plays at Lima 5:30 p.m. (JV start) Monday, while Jefferson plays again at home on Tuesday versus Allen East. ---Lady Lancers 3rd at WT invite The Lincolnview girls golf team finished third of seven teams at Thursday’s Wayne Trace Invitational held at Pleasant Valley Golf Course.
The hosts had a couple of openings: at 30:05, when freshman Alyssa Walter was just over the top from 15 yards; and 21:31, when Grote forced a diving stop by Paige Miller from 10 yards. The second half saw the Lady Knights have the wind but the Lady Wildcats took control. Crestview had an early attempt at 37:59 when senior Clare Mefferd was denied from 16 yards. It didn’t take long for the Red and White to get on the board — 36:46 — off a sequence in front of the goal. Liz Miller got control — off a corner kick from the left side — on the right post and her 8-yard shot deflected off a defender and into the goal for a 1-0 edge. Both teams had opportunities to score but the goalkeepers were up to the task. That is until 16:38. Off a cross from Liz Miller from the right side, Haehn was wide open in the middle as Swager couldn’t come out and grab the orb; Miller’s 8-yarder found the left side of the twine for a 2-0 edge. The Lady Wildcats made it 3-0 shortly after that — at 10:29. Off another cross from the right side by Liz Miller to the middle, freshman Logan Hamilton was also wide open in the middle and her 8-yarder found the left side of the cords. Neither team could dent the scoreboard the rest of the way as the keepers were up to the task. “We controlled the ball most of the match; we were playing very well as a team and we actually weren’t very tired because we had the ball at our feet,” Stober added. “We have struggled with numbers this year and we’re down to 14 but the girls have done a lot of work conditioning-wise and we wore them down. I am very proud of how much we have improved this season and the effort we have played with all season.” Jefferson hosts Bluffton 5 p.m. Thursday. “We didn’t get much going today,” Mefferd added. “We played as hard as we could but we’re just worn down; that was just so evident today. Hopefully, we can get some more pep as we get prepared for Van Wert Saturday.” That match is at home at 11 a.m.

DELPHOS — The St. John’s volleyball unit has struggled to finish sets and matches this fall. That continued Thursday night at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium as the visiting New Bremen Lady Cardinals swept the Lady Blue Jays 25-17, 25-18, 25-20 in Midwest Athletic Conference activity. “That’s it. We got up 4-1 in the first set and couldn’t hang on,” St. John’s coach Kellie Sterling noted. “When you get a team down, especially a good one like New Bremen, you can’t let them back up; we didn’t keep them down.” The Jays (5-11, 0-6 MAC) had their chances in the first set, getting off to that quick start but not maintaining the start. The Lady Cardinals and setter Karli Jones used the hitting prowess of such as Julie Brown, Stephanie Brandt and Hannah Holdren at the net to rally the troops. As well, libero Tarynn Clune led the digging effort for the visitors. In the end, a hitting error on set point put the Cardinals up 1-0. The second set saw St. John’s senior Heather Vogt (8 blocks) stuff the first Cardinal spike but a tip by Brown gave the serve to Amber Paul. Three aces later — as well as a kill by Brandt and a hitting miscue — put the visitors up 7-1 and forcing Sterling to call timeout. It didn’t help as the Cardinals built up a 14-4 edge on another ace, this time by Jones. The visitors then built up a 20-9 edge

Lady Musketeers flex muscles on pitch vs. Lancers
By Nick Johnson Times Bulletin Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org FORT JENNINGS - The Lincolnview Lady Lancers took on the Fort Jennings Lady Musketeers at Fort Jennings High School in girls soccer on Thursday night. The Musketeers beat the Lancers 9-0 in the match in which two Musketeers players recorded hattricks. Fort Jennings got the ball to start the first half. The Musketeers used good passing to knife the ball through the Lancer defense. With 26:54 left in the first half, junior Emily Grone beat Lancer goalkeeper Julia Thatcher for the first Fort Jennings goal of the match to make the score 1-0. Grone struck again minutes later with her second goal of the match with 24:25 left in the half to make the score 2-0, Musketeers. With 10:51 left in the first half, Fort Jennings got its third and final goal of the half, this time from freshman Brandi Kaskel, to make it 3-0. The second half was more of the same for Fort Jennings. Wasting little time, Grone completed her hat trick with her third goal when she scored at 39:24 make it 4-0, Musketeers. Fort Jennings scored again with 32:43 left when Macy Schroeder got her first goal of the match to make it 5-0. With less than two minutes having passed — the 30:53 mark — Ashley Gable got her name in the scoring book to make it 6-0. The Lancers moved keeper Julia Thatcher from the goal box to midfield and brought in Courtney German to protect the net. A couple minutes after the switch, Kristen Maag beat German for the seventh goal with 23:37 to go. With less than 10 minutes remaining (6:11), Kaskel tacked on her second tally. She finished her hat trick with the match’s final goal with 2:18 left and accounting for the 9-goal discrepancy. “(This was a) good game. The last two games we have been controlling everything,” Fort Jennings coach Rodney Wagner said. “We have been working on passing and shooting to start the season; we were struggling with some of that stuff but now things are starting to fall together. Hopefully, we can keep that stuff up for the rest of the season.” The Lady Musketeers (7-13) outshot their guests ongoal 29-7 and controlled the
on a hitting error before the Jays launched a rally, getting back within 23-18 on a hitting error and forcing Bremen coach Theresa Jenkins to call time. A hit off the block by Haley Moeller and a hitting error put the match firmly in the Cardinals’ hands at a 2-set advantage. The Jays got off much better in the third set, building an 8-4 edge on a hitting error, and later 9-5, 10-6 and 11-7 advantages. A aerving error jump-started a 6-0 spurt by the visitors, capped
by a Paul ace, to lead 13-11 and forcing Sterling to call a halt. The Jays fought back within 14-all but two kills by Moeller started the Cardinals on to a finishing run. Slowly, they pulled away and finished the sweep on a hit off the block by Brandt. “It’s a matter of confidence and mental focus right now. We beat Lincolnview Tuesday and we gained confidence; we lost that after tonight,” Sterling added. “I know we have the talent to do well; I think the girls
have to believe it. It has to go from knowing we have the talent to the belief that when we take the court, we are confident we can win the match.” Senior Katrina Etzkorn led the hosts with 18 digs and three aces, along with senior Emily Horstman (5 kills), senior Christie Carder (16 assists) and junior Alicia Buettner (7 blocks, 4 kills). New Bremen won the junior varsity match 21-25, 25-14, 25-21. St. John’s visits Ottoville 10 a.m. (JV start) Saturday.
Amanda Kocab led the Lady Lancers (210 team score) with a 45 to share medalist honors with Shelby Kohler of Wapakoneta, Jerika Bland (Paulding) and Rachel Schroeder (Hicksville); along with the 46 of Kaitlin Brant, the 54 of Macey Ashbaugh and the 65 of Mikenna Klinker. Wapakoneta won the meet with a 189, with Celina (Megan Stetler 48) at 197, the Lancers third, host Wayne Trace (Emilee Linder 46) 211, Paulding 213, Hicksville 227 and Parkway (Brenna Brazle 59) 277. ---Kalida edges Elida in boys soccer ELIDA — Kalida’s boys soccer team battled by Elida 2-1 in a hard-fought encounter Thursday under the lights of the Elida Soccer Complex. The visiting Wildcats had five shots on-goal — getting two tallies from Adam Langhals and two stops by Brent Hovest — versus three for the home team (Jerod Houston got the only goal and Drew Laing saved three attempts). Both return to the pitch 2 p.m. Saturday: Elida at home versus Lima Senior and Kalida at Defiance. ---Lady ’Dawgs sweep Kenton ELIDA — The Elida volleyball team swept Kenton 25-14, 25-21, 25-20 in Western Buckeye League action Thursday at Elida High School. Tops for the Lady Bulldogs (9-6, 3-2 WBL) were Torie McAdams (8 kills, 2 blocks), Kali Cahill (7 kills), Katie Hawk (18 assists), Erika Kiel (14 digs) and Summer Grogg (5 aces).

Vikings sweep Lady Green in PCL volleyball
by the Green and took the lead for good on yet another miscue on the part of the guests. Senior Abby Siefker (15-of-18 hitting, 5 kills) smacked a kill for Ottoville to keep the score within two at 15-13, bringing back and forth scores, and Lady Green senior Tammy Wannemacher (8 digs) sent across an ace to put the tally at 19-15 in favor of the home team. However, the Vikings got the momentum going their way again, using the talents of Kelly Nadler, who delivered a pair of aces and kills before a Ottoville hitting error ended set one. Set two was another nipand-tuck struggle. After the Vikings took the first point, Ottoville tied it at 1-1. Nevertheless, the Vikings scored on an in-the-net call against the Lady Green and never trailed again. Amber Gerdeman and Nadler contributed scoring marks for the hosts but a Viking service error brought the visitors to within one at 6-5. At that point, the teams exchanged either miscues or being called in the net but after a Nicole Kreinbrink ace, the Vikings were up by an 11-8 count. Mangas and Siefker helped keep the set close and a kill by junior Nikki Burgei helped reduce the hosts to just a 4-point lead. The Vikings surged ahead down the stretch; scoring nine of the final 13 points with the second set ending on a Shalynn Morman ace. The third set was much like the first but in reverse, with the Vikings taking the early advantage before a spurt by Ottoville. The Vikings led 7-4 before a series of successful serves by sophomore Annie Lindeman (11-of-11 serving, 1 ace) brought the Green back to
corner kicks 5-2. Thatcher ended up with 18 saves and senior Gabbie German seven for the home team. Schroeder delivered a hat trick of assists with three, while Gable and Katlin Stechschulte added one each. “Overall we had good points and bad points. Fort Jennings is a very good team,” Lincolnview head coach Katrina Smith said. “(I’m) not pleased with how we played but I’m not disappointed with our play. It can be tough after a game like this but we just have to come out and practice hard and just play harder the next time we take the field for a game.” Fort Jennings hosts Elida 10 a.m. (JV first) Saturday, while the Lancers (4-6) visit Eastbrook, Ind., for a doubleheader match with the boys starting 9 a.m. (boys) Saturday.

LEIPSIC — The high school volleyball season is heading into the last couple of weeks before the start of the tournament and the Ottoville Lady Green traveled to Leipsic to battle with the reigning Putnam County League champion Lady Vikings in preparation. Ottoville took control of set one before the hosts tied it midway in and eventually came away with a victory on their way to a 25-19, 25-16, 25-23 sweep. The Lady Green scored five of the first seven points in the opener before Leipsic turned it into a back-andforth contest. Junior Taylor Mangas delivered a kill for Ottoville to make it a 12-10 margin but several Big Green hitting errors allowed Leipsic back into the set. The home team tied it at 12-12 on consecutive errors
within one at 9-8. Ottoville finally tied the set at 13-13 on an ace by junior Tonya Kaufman (42of-42 setting, 9 assists) but a Gerdeman kill and a Maddie Steffan non-returned serve put the hosts up by two at 16-14. It appeared that the Vikings were going to put it away easily as they led 24-19 and were looking for that one last point. However, the Lady Green had other ideas, scoring four match-point points on the strength of back-to-back Siefker kills. In the end, the comeback attempt ran out of steam on what ended up being the theme of the night for both teams — more so for the guests; a missed spike attempt by the Lady Green. The Vikings move to 13-2 overall and 4-0 in the PCL, while Ottoville falls to 5-9 in all matches and 2-4 in league action. Ottoville hosts St. John’s 10 a.m. Saturday.

Ottoville, Kalida, Kayser advance to district golf
By Charlie Warnimont DHI Correspondent DEFIANCE — In tournament golf, the difference between advancing and staying home could be as slight as a single stroke. That was the case for the Wayne Trace and St. John’s golf teams Thursday at the Division III sectional at the Auglaize Golf Course. As the Raiders and Blue Jays were finishing their rounds, everyone knew that it would be close for the third and final qualifying spot for next week’s district tournament at Stone Ridge Country Club in Bowling Green. And when the final score was posted for each team, the difference was a stroke as the Raiders finished with a 331 team score, while the Blue Jays were a shot back at 332. While the battle for third was close, the battle for first place was a bit farther apart as Ottoville won the title, shooting a 313 team score, while Putnam County League rival Kalida was two shots back at 315. Tee times for the district start at 9 a.m. Despite the Blue Jays not advancing as a team, they had an individual advance in senior Nick Kayser. One other local individual advanced to the district tournament in Fort Jennings’ Kurt Warnecke. The Raiders were led by Grady Gudakunst with a 77. Zack Mansfield finished the day with an 82, Brian Meyer shot an 85, while Derek Langmeyer and Corbin Linder both had an 87. Kayser shot the low round of the day at Auglaize, firing a 71 to grab medalist honors. “Nick played extremely well. He has played extremely well all season,” St. John’s coach John Klausing said. “I just stay out of his way and let him play golf. It’s good for the team and good for Nick.” Backing up Kayser Thursday were seniors Cole Fischbach with an 85, Craig Klausing with an 86 and Sean Flanagan with a 90. Junior T.J. Hoersten finished with a 94. “The team played well. We just came up a shot short,” Klausing added. “It was a real close battle. It was neat to see.” The top of the standings were dominated by Putnam County rivals Ottoville and Kalida as the two storied programs are making a return trip to the district tournament. Just three days after the Wildcats defeated the Big Green to win the PCL tournament, the roles were reversed on Thursday. The Big Green, who shot a 166 Tuesday at Auglaize in a quad match, shot a lot better Thursday to win the sectional crown. “The kids really played super good today,” Ottoville coach Jim Brown said. “When it gets to the sectionals, it’s survive and move on. We really haven’t played our
best golf since early in the season. We kind of struggled for a while and boy did we come out really play good golf from my 1 man to my 5 man. We have four seniors and for them to go out like this is great.” Derek Schimmoeller and Wesley Markward paced the Big Green with 77s and Zach Weber was one shot back at 78. Craig Odenweller finished with an 81, while Logan Kortokrax had an 85. “Logan Kortokrax shot an 85 today, I was really proud of him,” Brown said. “Craig Odenweller was below his average with an 81 and my top three guys were all in the 70s; I’d take this all the time. That probably hasn’t happened since early, early in our season. I’m happy; maybe we are starting to peak at the right time. I’m just really pleased; they have worked hard for this.” Kalida’s top two golfers matched the Big Green’s low scores but their other two scores were one stroke higher, creating the difference between the two teams. Cody Mathew and Zach Erhart paced the Wildcats with 77s, while Austin Horstman had a 79 and Neil Recker an 82. Brady Mathew finished with an 83. “We played well and Ottoville played two strokes better,” Kalida coach Ken Schnipke said. “Give them all the credit in the world. We are happy to move on and see what we can do that next week. We took 11 strokes off our score from Monday. You just have to hand it to the kids for hanging in there and going out there and putting up some good scores.” Warnecke paced the Musketeers’ effort Thursday with a 79 to earn a trip to districts as an individual. “Kurt has earned it,” Jennings coach Todd Hoehn said. “He is the one who has played all summer and has made the trip up here to play on this course. His mind has been set on making districts after just missing it by a stroke last season.” Nate German finished with a 99 for the Musketeers, while Lucas Luebrecht had a 101. Josh Wittler and Nick Von Sossan both had a 107. Jefferson finished tied for sixth at the sectional as they shot a 353. The Wildcats were led by Nick Gallmeier with an 84, Tyler Wrasman had an 85, Carter Mox an 88 and Jacob Violet a 96. Tyler Rice finished with a 102. Crestview finished 12th with a 410 as they were led by Jacob Mengerick and Conner Lautzenheiser, both at 96. Jon Germann finished with a 104, Ronnie Schumm had a 114 and Cyler Miller a 136. *** 1.

The teams were very evenly matched — and it showed. After the teams fought to a 2-2 tie to open the first set, Celina seized the lead on a Lady Cougar error and opened it on a tip from junior Emily Dorsten and a kill from Beth Goettemoeller. Van Wert trailed by as much as six, 16-10, but fought back and tied the set at 18 on a kill from sophomore Alexa Dunlap. Celina was called for a misalignment, which gave Van Wert a 19-18 lead.
The teams then fought to ties at 19 and 20 before seniors Ashlee Dowdy and Sydney Collins recorded kills to force a Lady Bulldog timeout. The Lady Cougars outscored Celina 3-2 out of the break, en route to a first-set win which was capped by an Ashlee Dowdy kill. The second set saw a tie at four to begin, before Van Wert took an advantage on an Ashley Dowdy block, a Dunlap kill and a pair of points from sophomore Alexis Dowdy. The Lady Cougars ran their lead to four, 11-7, before Celina stormed back to tie the set at 14. Celina then put together a run which culminated in a kill by junior Michaela Wenning to give the Lady Bulldogs a 19-15 lead and force a Van Wert timeout. The break didn’t help and Celina ran the score to 24-19 on an ace from Goettemoeller. With Celina holding set-point, the Lady Cougars rallied with five straight points to tie it at 24 and force a Celina timeout. An ace by sophomore Riley Jones and a Lady Bulldog error gave Van Wert the game in dramatic, come-from-behind fashion. Much like the first two sets, the third was tightly-contested and saw early ties at 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 14, 17, 18 and 19. With the score tied at 19, Collins picked up a kill to give Van Wert a 1-point lead and force a Lady Bulldog timeout. An Ashlee Dowdy tip gave the Lady Cougars a 21-19 lead but Celina came back to tie it at 22 on an ace from junior Brooke Staugler. A Lady Cougar carry, a Wenning kill and a Van Wert attack error sealed the win for the Lady Bulldogs and kept them alive in the match. After getting a lead only to lose it Monday to Crestview, the urgency kicked in for Van Wert. They took a 3-0 lead in the fourth on two Dunlap kills and a Celina error and held a lead the entire set. Only up 12-11, Van Wert put together a 9-0 run which was capped by an Alexis Dowdy kill. Van Wert coasted throughout the remainder and won the match on a Collins ace. The win improves Van Wert to 8-5 on the season and they have some possession of second place in the league with three matches to go - which is exciting for a program which does not have a WBL championship. ---Van Wert edges Wapak in girls soccer The Van Wert soccer team edged Wapakoneta 3-2 in a Western Buckeye League tussle Thursday, The Lady Cougars visit Crestview 1 p.m. Saturday. ---Lady Pirates shut out Golden Bears Continental’s girls soccer team handed Bryan a dominating 4-0 non-conference loss Thursday. The Lady Pirates scored thrice in the first half: Vanessa Koppenhofer at 27:34; Paige Ordway at 20:05; and Taylor Williamson (courtesy of Paige Kindilien) at 5:46. Sloane Zachrich tacked on the final tally at 39:19 of the second half. Leva Weller faced three Golden Bear shots and stopped one to earn another shutout. The Pirates fired 40 shots and Courtney Retcher stopped 30.

2012 Catholic Humor Summit
In the year 752, a priest named Stephen was elected pope, but died four days later -before officially filling the chair of St. Peter in Rome. For centuries Catholic records included him as Pope Stephen II -- until the Second Vatican Council. At that time, Pope Stephen III officially became Pope Stephen II (III) and the other later popes named Stephen received similarly strange titles. So Pope Stephen III kind of vanished and that title became a kind of ecclesiastical inside joke, the kind that might appeal to cardinals and Jesuits. But what about a satirical superstar from Comedy Central? Actually, this insider joke works if the comedian is named Stephen Colbert and Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York delivers the punch line. The two faced off before 3,000 students and faculty at Fordham University in a Sept. 14 program focusing on “Humor, Joy and the Spiritual Life.” The event was arranged by Father James Martin, author of the book “Between Heaven and Mirth” and for legions of fans the “Official Chaplain of the Colbert Nation.” The jocularity started early as Dolan -who is used to having Catholics kiss his ring -- lunged to kiss Colbert’s hand, first. Then, when Martin said the cardinal might become
pope in a future conclave, Dolan responded, “If I am elected pope -- which is probably the greatest gag all evening -- I’ll be Stephen III.” Colbert piled on: “Write that down! I want that notarized!” Fordham officials disappointed YouTube fans by, at the last minute, declaring this much-anticipated summit a media-free zone. Still, a few journalists -- starting with a New York Times scribe -slipped in as guests. Also, it’s impossible to keep one-liners locked inside a hall packed with college students and Twitter-friendly smartphones. Some of the exchanges shared included: -- Colbert, who teaches Sunday school at his New Jersey parish, stressed that he never jokes about the sacraments. Instead, he skewers people he believes use and abuse faith, especially in politics. “Then I’m not talking
about Christ. I’m talking about Christ as cudgel,” he said. -- At one point, Cardinal Dolan introduced Evelyn Colbert, the comedian’s wife, and kissed her cheek. “I can kiss your wife,” he quipped. “You can’t kiss mine.” -- Jabbing the cardinal about recent changes in the Mass, Colbert noted one bumpy Nicene Creed edit: “Consubstantial! It’s the creed! It’s not the SAT prep.” -- A student, via social media, asked: “I am considering the priesthood. Would it be prudent to avoid dating?” The cardinal said dating was a good idea, adding, “By the way, let me give you the phone numbers of my nieces.” Colbert responded: “It’s actually a great pickup line: ‘I’m seriously considering the priesthood. You can change my mind.’” -- Concerning his own struggles as a believer, Colbert said: “Are there flaws in the church? Absolutely. But is there great beauty in the church? Absolutely.” And also, “The real reason I remain a Catholic is what the church gives me -- which is love.” -- Dolan to Colbert: “Do you feel pressure to be funny all the time?” Colbert back to Dolan: “Do you feel pressure to be holy all the time?” The bottom line, noted Martin, is that humor has always been part of religious life,
including the lives of the saints. Take, for example, that famous prayer from the young St. Augustine: “Lord, give me chastity ... but not yet.” In remarks later posted online, the Jesuit noted: “Humor serves serious purposes in the spiritual life. Joyful humor can evangelize, and draw people to God. Self-deprecating humor reminds us of our own humility. Provocative humor can also gently speak truth to power.” In his own theological reflections, the cardinal argued that the roots of Christian humor can be found in the darkest hours of Good Friday, when it appeared Jesus had been “bullied to death by undiluted evil; Love, jackbooted by hate; Mercy incarnate, smothered by revenge; Life itself, crushed by death.” But he who laughs last, stressed Dolan, laughs best. “Lord knows there are plenty of Good Fridays in our lives. But they will not prevail. Easter will,” he wrote, in his script. “As we Irish claim, ‘Life is all about loving, living and laughing, not about hating, dying and moaning.’ ... That’s why we say, ‘Joy is the infallible sign of God’s presence.’”

Rowling launches novel to fanfare, mixed reviews
By JILL LAWLESS The Associated Press LONDON — J.K. Rowling launched her long-anticipated first book for adults to publishing hype, mixed reviews and an enthusiastic welcome from Harry Potter’s legion of now grown-up fans. The lines were shorter and the wizard costumes were missing Thursday but “The Casual Vacancy” appeared to some of the same fanfare that greeted each Potter tome, with stores wheeling out crates of the books precisely at 8 a.m. as part of a finely honed marketing strategy. Almost 1,000 people were attending a reading Thursday evening at London’s Southbank Centre, most of them clutching copies of the book to be signed by the author. Many were young adults who had grown up with Rowling’s boy wizard and wanted to see what the author would do next. “She’s been such an inspiration to everyone,” said 18-year-old university student Milly Anderson. “She’s not just influenced people’s childhoods — she’s molded them.” Anderson said she was loving “The Casual Vacancy” — once she’d got over the change from reading stories about Harry and his Hogwarts chums. “There’s swearing and sex,” she said. “It’s a bit of a shock.” Published five years after the release of the last Potter book, “The Casual Vacancy” is already at No. 1 on Amazon’s U.S. chart. Betting house William Hill put 2-1 odds on it outselling “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” which sold 2.6 million copies in Britain on its first day. A story of ambition, envy and rivalry set in the fictional English village of Pagford, the novel recounts the civic warfare sparked when the unexpected death of a town official leaves a vacancy on its governing body. Characters set on a collision course range from the affluent lawyer Miles Mollison to the Weedons, a ramshackle clan living in The Fields, the run-down housing project on the edge of town. Many of the early buyers were Harry Potter fans who, like the author, have moved on to more adult fare. “I just like how much excitement there is about a book,” said 23-year-old Grace Proctor, a “massive” Potter fan who was first to buy the book at one London store. “I think there are going to be people who will hate it
Swimmer Ryan Lochte picks training over Tinseltown
By SANDY COHEN The Associated Press He’s worked as a fashion correspondent for TV’s “Extra” during New York Fashion Week, filmed cameos for “30 Rock” and “90210,” served as a presenter at the Alma Awards, introduced Lil Wayne on stage at last week’s I Heart Radio concert in Las Vegas and was spoofed by Seth MacFarlane on the season opener of “Saturday Night Live.” He’s also using his heightened profile to help raise funds for Water for People, which provides clean drinking water sources to developing nations that lack them. Lochte and fellow gold-medal swimmer Conor Dwyer co-star in a new public-service announcement for the nonprofit group. Lochte said he was “honored” to lend his famous face to the cause because “water is practically part of my life.” Still, on-camera work isn’t easy. “I can go up on the blocks and swim in front of millions and millions of people, no problem, and perform at my best. Like, that’s easy. But getting in front of a camera and doing a little acting? That is nerve-racking,” he said. “I did a first cameo for ‘90210’ and I was completely nervous... A lot of stuff comes into play when you’re acting. There’s like
just because they can hate it,” she said. “But she’s such an amazing writer, I don’t think she can go wrong.” Rowling has said she was aiming for Dickensian sweep in the multi-character saga, whose doses of sex, satire and swearing mark a distinct departure from wholesome Harry. Reviews have been mixed. The Associated Press judged it a challenging but rewarding read full of emotion and heart. AP’s Deepti Hajela said while its troubled characters mean “this isn’t a book that’s easy to fall in love with ... what could have been an unreadable story becomes something else in Rowling’s hands, thanks to her gift of being able to make her characters complex and really, just human.” But The New York Times’ influential book critic, Michiko Kakutani, was damning. “The real-life world she has limned in these pages is so willfully banal, so depressingly cliched that ‘The Casual Vacancy’ is not only disappointing — it’s dull,” she said. The Guardian newspaper’s reviewer, Theo Tait, said it was “no masterpiece, but it’s not bad at all: intelligent, workmanlike, and often funny.”

LOS ANGELES — With his camera-ready good looks, quirky catchphrases and funky fashion choices, swimmer Ryan Lochte parlayed the five medals he won at the 2012 Olympic Games into a burgeoning media career. But the 28-year-old athlete says he’s back in the pool training for future competitions and only embraced Hollywood to raise his sport’s profile. “My main goal is to make swimming bigger than what it is, or what it was back in 2008, and the only way I can do that is by going and doing cameos, being on talk shows, doing all those little things to help bring people aware that like, just bring them into swimming more,” Lochte told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday. “Honestly, the only time you ever hear about swimming is during the Olympics. I say to myself and to other people: Why can’t swimming be like the NBA or the NFL or something like that, because we do have those big championship meets once a year, so why can’t we have that (attention)?” Lochte has been among the most visible Olympians to emerge from the summer games in London.
different places where you have to be, different facial expressions, hand gestures, just everything comes into play, just for like one little scene. It’s crazy.” He felt a little better on “30 Rock.” “I was working with Alec Baldwin, who’s a tremendous actor, and he helped me out,” Lochte said. “He was just like, ‘Be yourself.’ And he kind of made it on set a little more easy to work with because he was just goofing off the whole time.” And what about MacFarlane’s “SNL” swipe? The “Family Guy” creator hosted last week’s episode and played Lochte as a dimwit who couldn’t put a sentence together. Lochte says he’s heard from “Saturday Night Live” but plans to let the whole thing go. “I’m going to let whatever Seth MacFarlane did, I’m just going to let it be and just move forward,” he said. “But anytime Seth wants to race me in a pool, I’ll be more than happy to.” And though Lochte is focused on preparing for his next competition in December, if Hollywood calls, he’d answer. “Oh yeah, of course,” he said. “I had a blast doing it. If it fits into my training, I’ll do it.”
garage window to ooh and ahh over its classic lines. But this future antique has no value now. It may even have negative value. When I go to see how much its trade-in value is, I’m pretty sure the guy will say, “We’ll charge you only two thousand to take it.” Which is crazy talk. This would make a fine first car for a teenager -some teenager who is good with his hands and doesn’t expect to have many dates with car-crazy girls. Did I mention the new tires and exhaust system? And since there is absolutely no way he could ever get a girl into that disgusting backseat, his parents might want to chip in, seeing as it’s a potential problem solver and the insurance premium would be very low. Parents who buy their kids new cars aren’t doing them any favors. A used car will teach teens how to become problem solvers; it will teach them basic car maintenance and self-reliance. And if the car is like mine, it can’t go much over 60 mph, so there’s a built-in safety factor. And since the radio doesn’t work, it won’t be a distraction. Face it, if you really loved your kids, you’d buy them pieces of junk. So when you see mine on the used-car lot, don’t think “someone else’s problem”; think, “a way to get back at my sulky teenager.” (Jim Mullen’s newest book, “How to Lose Money in Your Spare Time -- At Home,” is available at amazon.com.

Bryn Mawr College to honor rocker Patti Smith
YOUR #1 SOURCE FOR NEWS
BRYN MAWR, Pa. (AP) — Rock music veteran Patti Smith will be honored by Bryn Mawr College for her artistic accomplishments and pioneering spirit. The women’s liberal arts school near Philadelphia announced that Smith will receive the 2013 Katharine Hepburn Medal. The college on Wednesday called Smith “a trailblazer in the male-dominated world of rock ’n’ roll.” She also wrote a critically acclaimed memoir in 2010. Bryn Mawr will award the Hepburn Medal to Smith at a campus event on Feb. 7. A performance for students is being planned. The medal is given to women who embody “the intelligence, drive and independence” of the Oscar-winning college alumna for whom it is named. Hepburn graduated from Bryn Mawr in 1928. Previous winners include actresses Lauren Bacall and Blythe Danner.
Reese Witherspoon welcomes 3rd baby to the world
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Reese Witherspoon has given birth to her third child, naming him after a place close to her heart. Meredith O’Sullivan Wasson, Witherspoon’s publicist, said Thursday that “Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James into their family today. Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled.” The 36-year-old “Legally Blonde” and “Walk the Line” star lived in Tennessee when she was young. Witherspoon is already a mom to Ava, 13, and Deacon, 8, from her prior marriage to Ryan Phillippe. Toth is an agent for Creative Artists Agency.

Aging eyes need regular exams
DEAR DOCTOR K: What changes can I expect to my eyes and vision as I get older? DEAR READER: In most of us, nearly every part of our eyes shows changes caused by aging. As eyes age, eyelid muscles weaken and skin becomes thinner and looser. This can cause the upper lid to droop or the lower lid to sag. Tear production also drops off, and the oily film that tears provide decreases. These changes can lead to a buildup of sticky mucus, or they can dry the cornea, causing irritation or an uncomfortable, gritty sensation. Your sclera, the eye’s white outer surface, may yellow from fat deposits. Calcium deposits in the sclera can produce patches of grayish translucency, and the cornea can develop an opaque white ring around its edge. The lens, which focuses light rays onto your retina, hardens and loses its elasticity over time. This causes presbyopia, or difficulty focusing on near objects. Aging can cause your lens to darken, grow opaque and thicken, causing nearsightedness. Your night vision may also worsen. A clouding of the lens is called a cataract. It may go unnoticed until the cloudiness blocks your central line of sight and impairs vision. Over time, fluid that nourishes your eyes may back up, leading to increased pressure inside the eye that damages the optic nerve. This is called glaucoma, and it can silently impair sight before symptoms develop. Your retina sends your brain messages describing the objects you see. The aging retina thins and may grow less sensitive. The macula, a small part of the retina that provides sharp, central vision, is especially prone to deterioration. Age-related macular degeneration can steal a person’s central vision.

age. Don’t wait until your vision deteriorates to have an eye exam, as often only an exam can detect eye disease in its earliest stages. While an eye exam is the best way to catch eye disease early, there also are other ways. I discovered one way about a year ago. When doctors use an ophthalmoscope (the gadget with the light that shines inside your eye), we flip a little wheel that allows us to see deeper and deeper inside the eye. First we see the lens, and then look through the lens to the back of the eye. I realized I was having more trouble seeing the back of my patients’ eyes, and figured it was because their lenses were getting cloudy. But why would all my patients be getting cataracts? Then I realized there was another possible explanation: I was the one who was getting a cataract. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

The Herald – 11
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2012 You will be far more effective in the year ahead than you have been in a long time because of all the new knowledge and expertise you’ve acquired in the past few months. Your timing is good, because there’s a burgeoning market for your particular skill set. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If both you and a cohort want to run the show and have differing opinions, temporarily part company until you can agree to a meeting of the minds. Only then can you do things in harmony. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Attempting to do more than you can comfortably manage will prove to be self-defeating. Success will be denied you until you appreciate your limitations and operate within them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- It’s best not to take any speculative risks, but if you’re going to gamble, do so only on yourself. Taking a chance on anybody else would be foolish. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Try to avoid being unduly influenced by someone who doesn’t necessarily have your best interests at heart. If you strive to please this person, you may come a cropper. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t criticize the ideas of others unless you can offer some constructive concepts that you believe to be superior. If you can’t, it’s best not to say anything at all. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Be careful -- you’re not always the shrewd shopper you think you are. There’s a strong chance you could purchase something only to discover it being sold cheaper elsewhere. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Make it clear to an associate that he or she is not to make any decision for you without your approval. This is someone who does this all the time in order to get his or her way, and it needs to stop. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Guard against a tendency to yield to negative inclinations. Be optimistic about what’s ahead, and don’t allow yourself to feel overwhelmed before you begin. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Although you’ll be in a gregarious mood, you might not be too careful about your social skills and communication. You’ll end up alone if you march to a different drummer. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When used well, originality is an enviable quality. However, don’t attempt to tailor your words, ideas and thoughts just to be different, without making sure of their quality. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You might have to deal with someone who has taken an adverse position on something about which you feel strongly. Don’t allow yourself to provoke an angry reaction. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Unless it’s vital to do so, it’s best for you not to purchase anything that exceeds your budget. Even settling for cheaper merchandise will give you remorse.

Soil samples to be taken in Hoffa body claim
By COREY WILLIAMS The Associated Press ROSEVILLE, Mich. — State investigators will take soil samples from outside a home in suburban Detroit as police continue looking into a man’s claim that a body he says he saw buried in a backyard 35 years ago might have been that of missing Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa. The samples are set to be removed this morning from beneath the driveway of a home in Roseville and eventually tested for human decomposition. Hoffa was last seen July 30, 1975, outside a restaurant in Oakland County, more than 30 miles to the west. The results could put the rest the latest turn in the search for Hoffa’s remains. Previous tips led police to excavate soil in 2006 at a horse farm more than 100 miles north of Detroit, rip up floorboards at a Detroit home in 2004, and search beneath a backyard pool north of the city in 2003. There were even rumors that Hoffa’s remains were ground up and tossed into a Florida swamp, entombed beneath Giants Stadium in New Jersey or obliterated in a mob-owned fat-rendering plant. One local theory was that the body was beneath the foundation of a downtown Detroit hockey stadium, said 57-year-old Cindi Frank, who snapped photos Thursday of the Roseville driveway. The daughter of a unionized driver and salesman for a Detroit bakery, Frank remembers conversations about Hoffa while he was alive and rumors about his fate. “It was a family thing. Every time we’d go somewhere we’d say, ‘Hey, I wonder if Jimmy Hoffa is buried there?”’ Frank said. “It’s just been one of those unsolved mysteries that’s gone on for 30-something years. If he show up in Roseville ...” Results of the soil samples taken today are not expected before next week. News of the search has brought attention to the mostly working- and middle-class suburb from the curious and naysayers. Slowly moving vehicles have clogged the residential street as camera-wielding neighbors snapped photos for keepsakes. “I believe it’s him. My sister said it is, and she’s a psychic,” said Mike Smith after ambling up to the home Thursday and shying a bit from the yellow police tape stretched across the driveway. Feisty and iron-willed in contract talks, Hoffa was an acquaintance of mobsters and adversary to federal officials. He spent time in prison for jury tampering. The day he disappeared, Hoffa was supposed to meet with a New Jersey Teamsters boss and a Detroit mafia captain. He was declared legally dead in 1982. At the request of police, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality used ground-penetrating radar last week on the Roseville driveway. An anomaly, or shift, in

Some say the drug’s ability to very good thing,” Schmitz said. “This The Associated Press prevent a fertilized egg from implanting isn’t about abortion. These pills do not with tallest Ferris wheel in a woman’s womb is tantamount to cause abortion. It’s contraception.”
OKLAHOMA CITY — Christian activists attempted Thursday to deliver a petition to Hobby Lobby criticizing its challenge to a portion of the new federal health care law, but guards at the company’s headquarters turned them away. “I thought they’d let me drop off the package,” said the Rev. Lance Schmitz, pastor of the Capitol Hill Church of the Nazarene in Oklahoma City. Schmitz said more than 80,000 people had signed copies of a petition circulated nationwide by Faithful America, an online Christian group, and UltraViolet, which promotes women’s rights. Schmitz said he intends to mail the petition to the company. Lawyers representing Hobby Lobby this month sued the federal government claiming it should not be forced to provide workers with health insurance that covers the morning-after and week-after abortion. Hobby Lobby operates 500 arts and crafts stores in 41 states. Its Christian owners allege in the lawsuit that providing coverage for certain medications violates their “deeply held religious beliefs.” An attorney for the company, Kyle Duncan, said the Green family, which owns Hobby Lobby, respects the religious convictions of others, “including those who do not agree with them.” “All they are asking is for the government to give them the same respect by not forcing them to violate their religious beliefs,” Duncan said. But Schmitz and spokespersons for the Christian groups said the drugs are contraceptives and that women have a right to make their own medical decisions. “Access to contraceptive care is a Michael Sharrard, spokesman for Faithful America, said a large part of his group’s efforts “is to try to counter extremists” and that it represents the “mainstream majority.” “It’s a woman’s personal decision on what kind of birth control to use,” said Cat Barr, campaign director for UltraViolet. “Hobby Lobby is out of touch with mainstream Americans. It’s not their role to be dictating medical decisions.” The petitions accuse Hobby Lobby’s owners of using their Christian faith as an excuse to obstruct health care reform and deny women access to birth control. Petitioners vow to not shop at Hobby Lobby until the lawsuit, filed on Sept. 12 in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City, is dismissed. Duncan denied accusations that the company is attempting to block women’s access to birth control. By JENNIFER PELTZ The Associated Press
the soil was detected. Police Chief James Berlin told The Associated Press on Thursday that his office is “not claiming it’s Jimmy Hoffa” beneath the slab but that they are “investigating a body that may be at the location.” Roseville was one of several inner-ring communities that grew quickly as unionized auto factory workers left the city in search of nicer homes and bigger yards. “Maybe the most inconspicuous spot might be the place to stash a body or something,” said 52-year-old Andrew Kacir, who lives across from the taped off driveway. Recently retired Detroit FBI chief Andrew Arena is among the doubters. “You’ve got to check it out, but this doesn’t sound right,” he told the AP. “The working theories that have developed over the years, this really doesn’t fit any of those. If this was the mob and they killed somebody, I just don’t see them burying the body basically at the intersection of a residential neighborhood with this guy standing there.”

Extensive interviews conducted with current and former U.N. staffers in eight peacekeeping forces who lodged complaints against higher-ups found widespread frustration over “managers who committed misconduct and were rarely sanctioned,” said the Washington-based organization, Government Accountability Project (GAP). The U.N.’s tribunal system was reformed under Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, at the insistence of the General Assembly, in 2009 but appears to be worse at rooting out mismanagement than the old procedures, according to the GAP study, which was being released publicly today. After the reforms adopted higher standards of evidence and proof, GAP found 19 By AMY FORLITI The Associated Press nine misconduct cases were filed against peacekeeping staffers and just four were exonerated — a 28.6 dismissal rate. “Too often, bad apples are getting away with misconduct that they commit in the peacekeeping missions, at the expense of citizens across the globe,” GAP international program staffer Shelley Walden, co-author of the study, told The Associated Press. The United Nations is pledged to uphold justice worldwide. But as an international institution, its 75,000 staffers worldwide are ruled by an internal U.N. tribunal system that judges complaints of mismanagement, harassment or corruption. National courts do not have jurisdiction over U.N. employment issues. GAP’s research focused on the problems of whistleblowers in the U.N. system who spoke out against mismanagement, corruption or harassment that can go as far as death threats and assault. ers accused of rape or soliciting prostitution in Congo and Haiti. Ban’s spokesman, Martin Nesirky, said in a statement late Thursday that the new system in place since 2009 is an important part of the “architecture” of accountability at the U.N. and is closely monitored with the intent of strengthening managerial accountability. Part of the problem with the 2009 reforms, Walden said, is that it raised the standard of proof of misconduct, making it harder for whistleblowers to make their complaints stick. A report by Ban to the General Assembly in July verified that, saying that many cases “failed to meet the higher evidential and procedural standards” of the new tribunal system. These also led to long delays in investigating some cases, Ban said. Some complaints were deemed not credible. And some cases were not pursued because managerial changes had already been made.

Police: Minn. office shooter among ‘several’ dead
MINNEAPOLIS — The shooter who opened fire inside a Minneapolis sign company Thursday was among “several” people found dead inside the building, according to police officials who won’t specify how many people were killed. Police had previously said at least two people were killed and four were wounded, including three critically, during the afternoon shootings at Accent Signage Systems. But during a Thursday evening news conference, Minneapolis Police Deputy Chief Kris Arneson wouldn’t confirm the numbers. “We do have several victims inside that are dead,” Arneson said. When pressed to say how many, she said she didn’t know and that the investigation could take several days. She released few other details, including the shooter’s possible motive or gender, but said the person who fired the shots died inside the building from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. She said police did not fire at the shooter. None of the victims’ names has been released. Hennepin County Medical Center was treating four patients from the scene Thursday night, including three men in critical condition, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Someone from inside the building called 911 around 4:30 p.m. to report the shootings, police said. The first officers on the scene quickly began evacuating people from the business, which is nestled in a residential area on the city’s north side, and closed off several blocks. Dozens of squad cars and SWAT officers swarmed the neighborhood Thursday afternoon, and traffic was stopped on a nearby
bridge along Penn Avenue, where officers had rifles drawn and pointed at the business and a park below. By Thursday evening, police vehicles were still surrounding the business. People from the neighborhood milled around but deputies kept them back. Marques Jones, 18, of Minneapolis, said he was outside a building down the street having his high school senior pictures taken when he and his photographer heard gunfire that sounded close. “We heard about four to five gunshots,” Jones said. “We were shocked at what happened and we just looked at each other. We all just took off running to our vehicles.” According to Accent Signage Systems’ website, the company makes interior signage and lists its founder as Reuven Rahamim. A phone messages left at the business was not immediately returned, and a woman who answered the phone at Rahamim’s residential listing declined comment. The company employed 28 people as of July, according to a feature on the business in Finance & Commerce, a local business publication. The paper reported that U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce Francisco Sanchez visited it in August in a trip focused on exporting, and praised the company for its innovation. The company developed a patented technology for producing signs in Braille and had licensed out the technology to companies in 38 countries, the newspaper said. Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak said employees who were working when the shootings occurred were together and being cared for Thursday evening. “We are deeply sorry about what has happened here,” he said, calling the shootings “a horrible tragedy.”
BOSTON — Chemist Annie Dookhan was “Superwoman,” a colleague at a Massachusetts state crime lab used to joke. She seemed unstoppable in her quest to please prosecutors, police and her bosses, testing two to three times more drug samples than anyone else, working through lunch and not bothering to put in for overtime. “The kind of person, if you owned your own business, you would want to hire her,” a supervisor would later tell police. Beginning about four years ago, suspicions arose about the way she seemed to plow through so many cases so fast. After that, a supervisor complained he never actually saw her in front of a microscope. But her superiors let her work on. Now, the startling explanation has come spilling out: Dookhan told investigators she faked test results on drug samples and cut other corners. The scandal has created a legal morass of monumental proportions, with tens of thousands of drug cases in Massachusetts thrown into jeopardy. Dookhan, 34, is still under investigation by the state attorney general and has not been charged, and investigators have offered no motive for the fakery. She has not responded to repeated requests for comment. The fallout could be huge. Gov. Deval Patrick ordered a shutdown last month of the Boston lab, and the scandal has led to a firing and two resignations, including that of the state public health commissioner, whose department oversaw the William A. Hinton State Laboratory Institute before it was transferred to the Massachusetts State Police over the summer. A war room of sorts is being assembled to pick through Dookhan’s cases and determine which ones have been compromised. Law enforcement officials say Dookhan tested more than 60,000 drug samples involving 34,000 defendants in her nine years at the lab. More than a dozen defendants are already back on the streets as authorities try to determine whether Dookhan’s actions tainted the evidence in their cases, and more could be sprung. Authorities say more than 1,100 inmates are doing time based at least in part on Dookhan’s work.

NEW YORK — The Big Apple is getting another “biggest”: the world’s tallest Ferris wheel, part of an ambitious plan to draw New Yorkers and tourists alike to the city’s socalled “forgotten borough.” The 625-foot-tall, $230 million New York Wheel is to grace a spot in Staten Island overlooking the 305-foot-tall Statue of Liberty and the downtown Manhattan skyline, offering a singular view as it sweeps higher than other big wheels like the Singapore Flyer, the London Eye and a “High Roller” planned for Las Vegas. Designed to carry 1,440 passengers at a time, it’s expected to draw 4.5 million people a year to a setting that also would include a 100-shop outlet mall and a 200-room hotel. It will be “an attraction unlike any other in New York City — in fact, it will be, we think, unlike any other on the planet,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said as he unveiled the plans against the backdrop of New York Harbor. While the privately financed project faces various reviews, officials hope to have the wheel turning by the end of 2015. The wheel would put Staten Island on the map of superlatives in a place where “biggest” is almost an expectation — home to the nation’s biggest city population, busiest masstransit system, even the biggest Applebee’s restaurant. The attraction stands to change the profile of the least populous and most remote of the city’s five boroughs, a sometime municipal underdog that has taken insults from New Jersey and was once known for having the world’s largest ... landfill. “It’s going to be a real icon. The Ferris wheel will be Staten Island’s Eiffel Tower,” Sen. Charles Schumer enthused. As a visible addition to the skyline around the harbor, the wheel “gives Staten Island an identity beyond its role as a suburban community,” while letting it tap into the stream of tourist money in a city that drew 50.9 million visitors last year, said Mitchell Moss, a New York University urban policy professor. The project is expected to bring $500 million in private investment and 1,100 permanent jobs to the borough’s St. George waterfront, and the developers will pay the city $2.5 million a year in rent for the land. Staten Island isn’t entirely off the tourist map. Its free ferry is the city’s third-largest tourist attraction, carrying an estimated 2 million visitors a year alongside millions of residents, officials say. But the city has long struggled to entice tourists off the boat and into Staten Island. Much-touted Staten Island sightseeing bus tours fizzled within a year in 2009 for lack of ridership.
NEW YORK — A federal appeals court panel forced a Justice Department lawyer into an awkward position Thursday, making him explain the government’s decision to abandon defending the Defense of Marriage Act as judges decide the fate of a law destined for the U.S. Supreme Court. “In my day, when you won, you didn’t appeal,” a smiling Chief Judge Dennis Jacobs of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals told Acting Assistant Attorney General Stuart Delery after Delery rose from his seat near lawyers defending the law even as he seemed to speak out against it. Later, Judge Chester Straub demanded to know why the government quit defending the constitutionality of a 1996 law that defines marriage as involving a man and a woman after having spoken in favor of it for nearly 15 years. Delery said the switch came in early 2011 at the direction of President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder after the administration reviewed the law and concluded that it deserved a stricter view of what constituted discrimination than the legal reasoning that had previously been applied. Months from now, the 2nd Circuit is expected to rule whether Manhattan Judge Barbara Jones was right when she found the law unconstitutional in June, just like several other federal judges and a federal appeals court in Boston have done. Repeatedly, Delery spoke about discrimination in America against people over their sexual choices. “Gay and lesbian people have been subjected to a long history of discrimination that continues to this day,” he said.
