The Ottoville girls basketball team enjoys its Division IV Regional title Saturday night at the Elida Fieldhouse. (Delphos Herald/Tom Morris) By Charlie Warnimont DHI Correspondent ELIDA — Ottoville jumped out to an early lead Saturday night against Arcadia. Normally that would be enough to get the Big Green rolling towards their next win, but with a spot in the Division IV state semifinals on the line, Ottoville found the Lady Redskins would not fade into the background. Arcadia battled the Big Green tough for three quarters before the Redskins ran out of gas in falling to the top-ranked Big Green 52-37 before a packed house at the Elida Fieldhouse. The win sends the Big Green (27-0) to the Division IV state semifinals 3 p.m. Friday against Fort Loramie (25-3) at the Schottenstein Center on The Ohio State University campus. This will be Ottoville’s fifth trip to state but their first since the 2007 season. The Redskins end their season at 23-4. The win not only meant Ottoville would be advancing to state but the win was the 400th career win for Big Green coach Dave Kleman. See OTTOVILLE, page 6A

DELPHOS — The Delphos American Legion Post 268 hosted the 77th Annual Past Commanders and Presidents Banquet on Saturday night, where past leaders and award winners were recognized. Keith Hall presented Americanism Test winners St. John’s High School senior Tricia Warnecke and Jefferson High School senior Elizabeth Winhover with their awards. More than 65,000 students in the state took the Americanism government test and 16 were chosen to give an 8-10 minute oratorical speech. Both Warnecke and Winhover won a trip to Washington, D.C., where they visited many of the historical and revered sites. “We loved the Tomb Sentinels,” Warnecke said excitedly. “We also got into the White House.” Warnecke explained that the trip was a hands-on government experience where she ran for governor but did not win the caucus. During the remainder of her time “on the hill,” she was enlisted to work for the governor and helped to raise taxes. “I learned more in six days there [in Washington] than all my time in school,” Warnecke stated. Auxiliary President Sharon Miller introduced Buckeye Boys and Girls State delegates, including St. John’s senior Jessica Recker and Jefferson senior Wes Roby, and presented them with their awards. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience where lasting friendships are created,” Miller announced. Roby detailed his trip to Bowling Green where he ran for county sheriff, which was a heated election. During his political campaign, he made up catch slogans and was appointed to police chief at Bowling Green Police Station. “I worked on the school board and helped balance the budget,” Roby explained. “At Mount Union University, I worked for the Treasurer,” Recker detailed. “I learned a lot about taxation and working on a budget.” Guest speaker, Allen County Prosecutor Juergen Waldick, spoke during the banquet and presented an informative look at jury selection process and the vital importance of civic duty.

Disney’s ‘Oz’ bewitches with $80M debut
By DERRIK J. LANG The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — “Oz the Great and the Powerful” clicked with moviegoers. Disney’s 3-D prequel to the classic L. Frank Baum tale “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” debuted in first place and earned $80.3 million at the weekend box office in the U.S. and Canada and $69.9 million overseas, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Oz” tells the origin of James Franco as the wizard with Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz as the trio of witches he encounters after crashing in the mystical realm of Oz. The updated take on “Oz,” which was directed by original “Spider-Man” trilogy mastermind Sam Raimi, was a gamble that looks like it will pay off for the Walt Disney Co. The film reportedly cost $200 million and opened a week after “Jack the Giant Slayer,” another bigbudget 3-D extravaganza that reimagines a classic tale, flopped in its opening weekend, debuting with $28 million at the box office. “Oz” was also golden overseas. The film conjured up $69.9 million from 46 foreign markets, including Russia and the United Kingdom. “Oz” could follow in the footsteps of Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland,” another costly 3-D film, which opened on the same weekend in 2010 and went on to gross over $1 billion worldwide. “‘Oz’ is the shot in the arm that the industry needed,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.

com. “We had six consecutive weekends where the box office was down. As a result, we’re at a 12-anda-half percent deficit year-to-date on box office revenues versus last year. Not a lot of movies have worked. There have been several underperformers.” In its second weekend, “Jack” stomped out second place behind “Oz” with $10 million, dropping 62 percent since its opening weekend. It earned just $4.9 million overseas. “Jack,” based on the Jack and the Beanstalk fable, was directed by Bryan Singer and stars Nicholas Hoult and Ewan McGregor. The only other new release this weekend, the FilmDistrict revenge drama “Dead Man Down” starring Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace, opened in fourth place with $5.3 million.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood. com. Where available, latest international numbers are included.

Marvel releasing some 700 No. 1 issues digitally
By MATT MOORE The Associated Press In comics, the first issue is where the story starts and the legend begins. For readers, a print copy of issue one can be hard to find and expensive to buy. But those rules don’t apply to tablets, laptops and smartphones both for comics fans and those curious about characters they may have seen in film or on television. Part of that fascination with superheroes and their growing cachet in popular culture is why Marvel Entertainment, home to the Fantastic Four, the X-Men and the Avengers, among others, is making more than 700 first issues available to digital readers starting Sunday for free through the Marvel app and the company’s website. After Tuesday, they’ll be sold for $1.99 to $3.99 per issue. The titles go from the 1960s Silver Age to contemporary issues with characters including Wasp, Mr. Fantastic, Power Man and Iron Fist, said David Gabriel, senior vice president of sales. “This is aimed at attracting fans from all walks of life — those who know our characters from the big screen, those who were readers but fell out of the habit and our longterm fans too,” he said. “We believe that if we get those fans in the door, they’ll stay and help grow this industry, with purchases both in comic stores and via digital comic outlets.” The publisher went through its catalog of more than 13,000 titles that are already available digitally

and plucked out the No. 1 issues with historic ones like “Amazing Spider-Man” by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko or the “Fantastic Four” by Lee and Jack Kirby as well as modern titles like “Civil War,” Joss Whedon’s “Astonishing X-Men” and characters and teams like the Uncanny Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, too. “We never want fans to feel like they need to have read it all. Of course we want them to want to check out those stories, but the beauty of these No. 1 issues is that each is an entry point,” he said. “So with a character like Iron Man, you can choose if you want to start with the recent ‘Iron Man’ series from Kieron Gillen or go back a few years to when Matt Fraction launched ‘Invincible Iron Man’ or even before that.”

That was something he downplayed. “I’ve really tried to play that down because it’s not about how many wins I get, it’s about the girls playing,” Kleman said. “The fans were really nice to me. The girls knew it but it was like having a no-hitter. Nobody was saying anything until after the fact. I really appreciated that and the girls work so hard.” Ottoville came out firing Saturday night as they opened up an 18-10 lead after the first quarter. The Big Green drained four 3-pointers in the opening quarter as they were 4-of-6 from behind the arc: Nicole Vorst hit a pair, while Taylor Mangas had one and Rachel Turnwald hit one to end the first-quarter scoring. Arcadia actually scored first as Regina Fox hit a three before Ottoville went on an 8-0 run to take a lead they wouldn’t lose. The Big Green hit 7-of-10 first-quarter shots, while Arcadia was 4-of-7 but turned the ball over five times. “We’ve battled height all year and that’s a testament to the heart of these kids,” Arcadia coach Randy Baker said. “It seemed every team on our schedule had at least two people 6-foot or taller. Ottoville just had a little more outside than some of those teams had and they hurt us early. We maybe helped too much in the post at times and they kicked it out, got looks and drained 3-pointers early in the game.” After hitting four 3-pointers in the opening quarter, the Big Green didn’t hit one the rest of the game as Arcadia stepped up its defensive pressure on the perimeter. Meanwhile, the Redskins didn’t go away as the Big Green struggled in the second quarter for a second straight game as starters Vorst and Abby Siefker both picked up their second foul in the quarter and had to sit on the bench. With two starters on the bench, Arcadia used a 6-2 run to start the second quarter, coming within 20-17 on a Miranda Palmer 3-pointer. Molly Glick scored four points early in the quarter before Annie Lindeman answered for Ottoville. Rachel Beining later added a 3-point play before Arcadia hit 3-of-4 free throws down the stretch to come within 25-20 at the half. The Redskins had a chance

Heidelberg rallies in ninth for 7-2 win over Beavers By Kyle Stover Sports information assistant

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - The Bluffton University Beavers faced off with perennial powerhouse Heidelberg University in the Snowbird Baseball Classic on Saturday, taking a 2-1 lead into the eighth inning before eventually falling 7-2 to the Student Princes. A 2-run eighth and 4-run ninth inning handed Bluffton just its third loss of the young season, giving the Beavers a tough end to what was a suc-

cessful Florida trip. Ben Roeschley (Graymont, Ill./Flanagan) gave Bluffton a superb start on the mound, going 7.2 innings and allowing just three runs while striking out five. Roeschley (1-1) got out of a few jams early in the game, giving the Beavers opportunities to build a lead, but still took the loss as Bluffton’s offense was unable to get things going against the Student Princes. Todd Stover (Tipp City/ Tippecanoe) and Brad Schlabach (Fredericksburg/ Hiland) came on in relief for Roeschley, allowing four runs in their combined 1.1 innings of work. Bluffton struck first, scoring in the second inning to take an early lead. A Greg Franks (Smithville) double followed by a Jake Townley (Mansfield/Madison) RBI single gave the Beavers a 1-0 lead. Heidelberg bounced back to tally a run of its own in the top of the third, tying the game at one. The game would remain tied at one until the seventh inning when Bluffton was able to get things going again on offense. The inning began with a double by Tim Webb ( D e l a w a r e / Wo r t h i n g t o n Christian). Franks followed that up by reaching on an error by the third baseman with Webb advancing to third before Townley drove in another run, this time with a sacrifice fly to center field. That was all the Beavers were able to produce in the inning, going down in order after the sacrifice RBI by Townley. Bluffton put runners into scoring position in the bottom of the eighth and ninth innings but couldn’t cash in as Heidelberg pulled away for the victory. A leadoff walk by Webb followed by a single from Franks in the


bottom of the ninth gave the Beavers some life but that was short-lived as Townley grounded into a double play to end the threat. Kyle Niermann (Napoleon) led the Beaver offense, going 3-of-4 on the day, all singles. Townley drove in both runs for Bluffton. Heidelberg improved to 6-1 on the year, while Bluffton fell to 7-3. The Beavers are back in action again Thursday when they host Wilmington College in the home opener at Memorial Field. The contest with the Quakers is slated to start at 4:15 p.m.

ADA — Elida had gone ahead of Bath 42-36 with a little over six minutes remaining in the Bulldogs’ Division II District final Saturday night on the Joe and Margaret Campoli Court and was looking to get even after a pair of regular-season losses to the Wildcats. B a t h would have none of it, answering the challenge with Mathias a 20-8 closing spurt, finished off at the free-throw line, to capture their firstever Regional boys basketball berth with a 56-50 triumph before a capacity crowd of 2,400-plus inside the Ohio Northern University Sports Center. Bath (22-4) will battle Cleveland Benedictine 8 p.m. Thursday at Bowling Green State University. “I don’t usually celebrate a lot anyway but when we got that last rebound with a few seconds left and the clock wound down, it hit me; I can’t describe the feeling I had at that time,” Bath coach Doug Davis began. “This is not only big for our team and the program but it’s big for the entire Bath community. There are people still out there on the floor taking pictures and just enjoying the moment. This is such a proud moment for the entire community.” Elida bows out at 17-8. With the teams tied at 36 to start the ultimate quarter, sophomore Austin Allemeier got Elida going with an early basket, followed by a deuce by junior Dakota Mathias — the only Bulldog in double digits with a game-high 27, including five bombs, to go with a gamehigh 13 caroms — and then another basket by Marquevious Wilson (4 points, 8 boards) that gave the Bulldogs that 6-point lead. Junior Taren Sullivan (11 markers, 9 caroms, 4 steals, 3 assists) hit two singles at 5:50 to begin the journey back for Bath. He followed with a second-chance basket and senior Cole Chambers (13 markers) tied it up with a putback at 4:14. Senior Connor Rockhold (9 markers, 4 boards) gave the Wildcats the lead for good — 44-42 — with a tear-drop runner at 3:53 and senior Logan Rockhold (10 points) finished off a killer 11-0 spurt with a transition 3-point play at 3:35 for a 47-42 edge. Mathias broke the string with a 3-ball from the key at 3:01 but the Wildcats then spread out the offense and either kept attacking for good/uncontested shots or forced Elida to foul. They first got a baseline drive by Chambers at 2:03 and then after a missed shot by the Bulldogs, the rest of Bath’s points came from charity. Led by 4-of-4 free-throw shooting by Logan Rockhold, Bath netted 7-of-8 at the line in the final 1:28 (10-of-12 in the fourth, 15-of-20 for the game for 75%) to keep Elida at bay. Mathias hit a pair of treys in the same late span but it was not enough as Bath finished the 3-game sweep of their WBL archrivals in 2012-13. “We got up by six in the fourth and then we committed a couple of turnovers that led to easy buckets for them. That was one of the keys for us; handle their pressure and not give them a lot of easy baskets,” Elida mentor Denny Thompson began. “For the most part, I felt we didn’t give them a lot of those looks. Then you throw in their free-throw shooting down the stretch and that’s what wins close games this time of year.” The 6-3 Chambers had the primary duty of defending the 6-4 Mathias, with Davis electing to not double the Bulldog star as often as possible and going 1-on-1 much of the time. “They were pretty physical with me and seemed like they had someone different each time down the court but I’m getting used to that. I was surprised they didn’t double as much as before, pretty much playing me 1-on1; I had to make shots and just didn’t make enough of them,” Mathias noted.

“We got up by six in the fourth and then we committed a couple of turnovers that led to easy buckets for them. That was one of the keys for us; handle their pressure and not give them a lot of easy baskets For the most part, I felt we didn’t give them a lot of those looks. Then you throw in their free-throw shooting down the stretch and that’s what wins close games this time of year.”

“We employed different strategies all three times we played them. The first game (Elida Tip-Off Classic in early December), we played straight up and he scored 40,” Davis continued. “The second time (Feb. 8), we doubled him a lot more but we found out he’s a pretty good passer. Tonight, we assigned Cole to him most of the time and he did a nice overall job.” Both teams had an opposite game plan coming into the matchup; Elida wanted to take care of the basketball and run more of a half-court tempo offense, while Bath looked to push the pace and make it a 90-foot game. “I felt we did a good job of controlling them defensively. Outside of the last few minutes when we had to foul, we defended them pretty well,” Coach Thompson added. “In particular, we got to Taren early. The problem is, they have a lot of weapons. We were up one at halftime and I didn’t feel we played all that well. Every turnover at this stage is big as well.” Bath had the better of the proceedings in the first period, shooting 6-of-11 in the stanza (19of-45 for the game, 3-of-13 from 3-land, for 42.4%). Elida struggled finding the range, hitting only 4-of-14 (21-of-49 for the night, 6-of-20 from deep, for 42.9%). When Colin Gossard, the fourth Wildcat in twin digits (11) in a very balanced offense, hit a basket inside at 1:04, Bath had its biggest edge of 15-8. Elida righted the ship in the second stanza, with Mathias getting untracked with eight markers (2 treys) in the span. As well, the Elida defense began to limit Bath’s offense, holding the Wildcats to six markers in the period. When senior Aric Thompson laid one in in transition with 1:03 showing, Elida led 22-21. Bath started the third period well, working to a 29-24 edge on two tosses by Logan Rockhold at the 5-minute mark. Back came Elida as Mathias hit a deuce and a trey to tie it at 29, with Thompson adding a pair of throws and junior Louis Gray (7 points) a basket for a 33-29 edge. A quick five points — a trey by Gossard and a layin off a steal by Sullivan — put Bath back in front at 34-33 at 1:27. Gray buried a triple from the left corner at the 40-second mark to give Elida the lead again but Doug Sanders hit a pump-fake basket inside at 10 ticks for a 36-all tie. “We had a lot of question marks about this team at the beginning of the year and went through some adversity,” Coach Thompson added. “The progress we made, to come back and tie for the WBL title and make it to District is a testament to the kids and how hard they worked.”

Kimbrough countered with a 3-pointer for LCC and a little later in the game, Bowers knocked down another bomb to make the score 42-36, LCC.

Spencerville started the fourth period with a 3-pointer from Cook and a 3-point play from Zach Goecke to cut the LCC advantage to 48-45. LCC went on an 8-2 run, getting two triples from Johnson and Xavier Simpson, but the Bearcats got two foul shots from Derek Goecke to end the run and make the score 56-50, T-Birds. A Derek Goecke layup and two foul shots from Greg Miller cut the Spencerville deficit to 59-55. LCC went

on to make 7-of-8 from the free-throw line to close out the game and give the T-Birds the 6-point win and Regional berth. “They just made big shots and they made them all night long. Martyce and Tre’on just made shots when they needed to make shots,” Bearcat coach Kevin Sensibaugh said. “We couldn’t get over the hump and get the stops when we needed to but our guys never gave up all night. I’m proud of them; they fought like crazy but LCC made shots when they needed too. “I think what happened the first time around — Martyce and Tre’on, neither of them we able to get on from the field. This time they got it going a little bit; not like we weren’t guarding them. We got hands in their faces; they just made big shots. That is just the difference in the game.” The T-Birds had four scorers in double digits as Johnson led all scorers with 20 points, Kimbrough and West both added 15 points on the night and Simpson also contributed 10 points. The Bearcats had three players in double figures as Bowers had 19 points, Zach Goecke added 16 and Derek Goecke chipped in with 14. With the win on Saturday night, LCC improves to 24-2 on the year and advances to BGSU to take on OttawaGlandorf 8 p.m. Wednesday night. The Bearcats end 16-8 on the year.

Kenseth holds off Kahne to win in Vegas
By GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press LAS VEGAS — Matt Kenseth decided not to replace any tires during the final pit stop under caution and the calculated risk put him in the lead. Kenseth knows a bit about risk after his offseason move to Joe Gibbs Racing and this latest gamble paid off with his third victory in Vegas. Kenseth won on his 41st birthday in just his third start for his new team, barely holding off Kasey Kahne at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for his 25th career victory Sunday. “I was real nervous all day,” Kenseth said. “(Kahne) had the best car. I told (crew chief) Jason (Ratcliff) with about 12 to go that I was sorry we were going to lose. We were just too tight. … We didn’t have the fastest car there but we had it where we needed it to be.” Kenseth took charge by taking only fuel on the final pit stop during caution while almost everybody else replaced two tires. He took the lead and held onto it, using his veteran savvy — and a few screamed instructions at his new spotter — to keep Kahne’s impressive Chevrolet behind him to the finish. The frequently laid-back Kenseth celebrated with uncommon vigor after his JGR Toyota crossed the line. He’s still getting comfortable with his new teammates after leaving Roush Fenway Racing in the highest-profile driver move of the offseason, joining Gibbs after 13 seasons with RFR. “I’m not a huge goal person but my goal was to win and to win early,” Kenseth said. “Nobody has put any pressure on me except for myself but I also know that Coach hired me to come in there, climb in that car and win races. You certainly want to do that and you don’t want to disappoint people. I’m glad we got a win but it’s still only Week 3. I feel like this is the beginning.” Pole-sitter Brad Keselowski finished third, with Kenseth’s teammate, Kyle Busch, in fourth and Carl Edwards fifth. Jimmie Johnson, the overall points leader, was sixth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. seventh. Defending Vegas champion Tony Stewart finished 11th, while Gibbs driver Denny Hamlin was 15th after an eventful week featuring a $25,000 fine from NASCAR for criticizing the new Gen-6 race car. The win was the 50th for Toyota in Sprint Cup Series competition. Kenseth is just the third NASCAR driver to win on his birthday, joining Cale Yarborough — who did it twice — and Busch. Kenseth has won at least one race in 11 of his 14 full seasons in the Sprint Cup series but the first 13 were all in Fords with Roush Fenway, the team that gave him his break in NASCAR and fostered his development into a likely Hall-of-Famer. Kenseth’s decision to leave for a seat on Gibbs’ team was an open secret for much of last season, although the veteran star never really explained his move. The 400-mile race was the first real test for NASCAR’s new Gen-6 car on the intermediate tracks they’re built to race. Although Hamlin commanded the week’s headlines with his pessimism amplified by the NASCAR fine, most drivers were curious how the Gen-6 would work in its ideal 1.5-mile environment. Any drivers who still think

The Associated Press MIAMI — Mario Chalmers scored 26 points, Chris Bosh added 24 and the Miami Heat won their 18th straight game, easily topping the Indiana Pacers 105-91 on Sunday night. The 18-game streak ties the seventh-longest in NBA history and is the league’s best since the Boston Celtics won 19 straight during the 200809 season. Miami will try for No. 19 when it hosts Atlanta Tuesday night. The win also gave Miami (47-14) a victory over every NBA team this season. The Heat lost both previous meetings with Indiana. Dwyane Wade scored 23 points for the Heat, who controlled the game despite a season-low 13 points from LeBron James. David West scored 17 of his 24 points in the first half for the Pacers, who fell nine games behind Miami in the Eastern Conference standings.
Raptors 100, Cavaliers 96 TORONTO — Amir Johnson scored 17 points and matched his career high with 16 rebounds and Alan Anderson scored 10 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter.

Cavaliers star guard Kyrie Irving was knocked out by an apparent shoulder injury late in the third quarter as Cleveland lost for the fourth time in five games. He was hurt when he collided with Toronto rookie Jonas Valanciunas on a baseline drive with 2:04 left in the third. He shot the resulting free throws one-handed. Irving made the first but missed the second before walking off and heading to the locker room. He finished with 12 points. Irving missed 11 games between Nov. 21 and Dec. 8 with a broken finger. He also sat out three games between Feb. 26 and March 1 with a sore right knee. Lakers 90, Bulls 81 LOS ANGELES — Dwight Howard scored 16 points and grabbed 21 rebounds and Kobe Bryant chipped in with 19 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for Los Angeles. The Lakers improved to 33-31, the first time this season they have been two games over .500. They also moved one-half game ahead of the Utah Jazz and into sole possession of the No. 8 and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Lakers led almost throughout, only briefly falling behind by two points in the second quarter, and led by as many as 18 in the third period. Nate Robinson led the Bulls with 19 points. Howard’s 21 rebounds marked the fourth time this season he’s grabbed at least 20. Thunder 91, Celtics 79 OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant had 23 points and 11 rebounds, Russell Westbrook scored 15 points and the Thunder stretched their winning streak to five games. The Thunder limited Boston to 25-percent shooting in the second half after the Celtics shot 51 percent in the first. Oklahoma City used an 11-2 run at the start of the fourth quarter to


it’s too tough to pass in the new car must not have been watching Busch, who made two lengthy charges up to early leads, doing it both before and after a pit-row speeding penalty dropped him back to 18th. “I just hate it for my team,” said Busch, a Las Vegas native and graduate of nearby Durango High School. “We had by far the best car in practice. I don’t know where that went. Today was a different day. The worst Gibbs car ended up winning the race. It’s funny how this game works.” Busch, who finished second in Saturday’s Nationwide Series race, charged through the field with impressive ease and took the lead out of a restart with a daredevil move on the apron with 102 laps to go. He went three wide and got underneath Kahne while kicking up dust well below the white line. Kahne set the qualifying speed record on the Vegas track last year but rain wiped out qualifying this week. He reclaimed the lead and held it until Kenseth nosed ahead out of another restart with 36 laps left when Kahne had trouble getting out of pit row, nearly hitting Stewart.

Greivis Vasquez, who also had 20 points, then dribbled out of traffic along the perimeter and found Anderson inside for the winning bucket.

up to date on family news. Do not mention her religion or yours or the argument you had. We hope, over time, her stringent position will mellow a bit and she will contact you again. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Midwest Cook,” who is appalled when other people’s children say they “don’t like” what she’s serving. She says her own children will happily eat anything besides sauerkraut and Brussels sprouts. It seems unfair to me to acknowledge her own children’s food biases, but assume that any other child’s preferences are a result of being pampered. Manners, like saying “no, thank you,” can be taught, but some people simply cannot eat the way others do. If “Midwest Cook” will be regularly entertaining others’ children, she might ask in advance whether they have things they can’t (or won’t) eat. This would save her guests, even the children, the awkwardness of offending the hosts by declining food. — No Fish, Please Dear No Fish: Unless there are serious allergies, it is unreasonable to expect hosts to cater to individual tastes. A good host will provide enough variety that no one goes hungry. A good guest will find something to nibble on without complaint.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 The urge to travel and expand your horizons could be quite pronounced in coming months. If you start planning now, there’s a chance these trips could take place. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- The probability of it being a profitable day appears to be exceptionally good. However, look for gains come to about in a most peculiar manner. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You’re likely to derive greater benefits from what you do on the spur of the moment than from something more calculated. Be flexible and alert. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Although you are quite intuitive, you should also be able to accurately size up situations using your fine deductive skills. It pays to use all of your faculties. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your companions will have an enormous effect on your outlook, which is normal but not always productive. However, today you’ll be pleased by the way they stimulate your thought processes. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Achievement is within the realm of possibility, as long as you’re both swift and consistent. However, if you hesitate on something, you won’t likely get a second chance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Some unusual information that comes your way might not fit in your present plans, but you may be able to use it on some future venture; put it in your pocket. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Something commercially beneficial could unexpectedly develop through someone who is more of a friend than a business associate. Be sure to check it out. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Do not discount your mate’s flash of inspiration today just because his/ her reasoning isn’t along traditional lines. It’s the concept that counts, and it could be ingenious. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Be sure to put your thinking cap on when at work, because certain ideas of yours could go a long way toward gaining some points with the powers that be. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- There’s a good chance that you’ll run into an old friend whom you haven’t seen in a very long time. The meeting could be a harbinger of something more interesting and exciting to come. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even if you don’t get off to a dazzling start, the day’s end could be quite dramatic, desirable and exciting. It’s important to remember that it’s the bottom line that counts. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your comments are likely to have greater impact on your associates than you might realize. You’re likely to say all the right things, which will strengthen relationships rather than weaken them. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 2013 Pisces has numerous, wonderful enviable qualities, which in the year ahead will be lifted to even greater heights. The revitalization of your better traits will further enhance your probabilities for success. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -You are presently in a positive cycle in terms of your financial affairs. You might even acquire something that was long overdue. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -One of the best ways to get your coworkers’ cooperation is to make sure that what’s good for you can be great for them as well. It’s one of the keys to success. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Rather than vying for center stage, keep a low profile, especially if you’ve been given a key role to play. It’s the best way to get the acknowledgment that you crave. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you want some interesting things to occur in your social life, you can’t wait for the right people to come to you. Seek them out yourself and, in a nice way, make your presence felt. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -One of the best ways to deal with a competitive situation is to take more positive action than your adversaries do. Keep an optimistic, proactive frame of mind, and you’ll come out ahead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Examine all new endeavors not merely for what they can do for you immediately, but how they can enhance your future. When you look ahead, make sure all the pieces fit together. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Sometimes we find ourselves in the excellent position of being able to reap a harvest from seeds we haven’t sown. This might be your scenario today, so be alert for such an opportunity. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Snap judgments you arrive at might not be as perceptive as those of your mate’s. Listen to his or her input, which could provide you with some alternatives that you haven’t considered. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- The amount of zeal you display while working on a job is likely to set the tone that others will follow. If you want everything to unobtrusively buzz along, maintain an accelerated pace. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You are likely to have more fun and feel more comfortable in a small gathering than in a large group. Try to stay within your comfort zone. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If your primary goal is to amply provide for those you love, you’ll make sure that this objective is met, no matter what the day may throw at you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -You should pay attention to intuition that tells you the proper course of action to take. Any afterthoughts will be less accurate, and land you on the rocks.
