Residents who were in downtown Van Wert Wednesday afternoon had the chance to catch a number of antique auto-
mobiles as they continued on a journey down the Lincoln Highway. Many of the entrants from the Classic Car Club of
America pulled into the downtown area for some lunch and a little sight-seeing. According to participants, around 30-35
cars set out last Sunday from New York City, following the Lincoln Highway, and are heading for Chicago on the first
leg of a cross-country journey in honor of the road’s 100th anniversary. Among those who stopped were residents of
New York, Illinois, Canada and France. The car owners set their own travel schedule but were due in Auburn, Indiana,
Wednesday evening for dinner at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. (Times Bulletin/Ed Gebert)

man charged
with women’s
kidnap, rape
Associated Press
A man suspected of keeping
three women captive inside
his decrepit house for a decade
was charged Wednesday with
kidnapping and rape, accused
of holding them under condi-
tions so oppressive they were
allowed outside for only a
few moments in disguise and
never saw a chance to escape
until this week.
Investigators said the
women apparently were
bound with ropes and chains,
and a city councilman briefed
on the case said they were
subjected to prolonged sexual
and psychological abuse and
suffered miscarriages.
Ariel Castro, a 52-year-old
former school bus driver, was
charged with four counts of
kidnapping — covering the
captives and the daughter
born to one of them — and
three counts of rape, against
all three women.
The women, now in their
20s and 30s, vanished sepa-
rately between 2002 and
2004. At the time, they were
14, 16 and 20 years old.
Prosecutors brought no
charges against Castro’s two
brothers, who were arrested
along with him on Monday,
saying there was no evidence
they had any part in the crime.
Castro owns the run-down
home where the women were
rescued on Monday after
one of them, Amanda Berry,
broke through a screen door
to freedom while he was
away. The discovery electri-
fied Cleveland, where many
people had come to believe
the missing young women
were dead.
Police Deputy Chief Ed
Tomba said it was the only
opportunity they ever had to
“Something must have
clicked, and she saw an
opportunity and she took that
opportunity,” he said.
Tomba said the women
could remember being outside
only twice during their time in
“We were told they left
the house and went into the
garage in disguise,” he said.
The women were not kept
in the same room but knew
about one another, he said.
He also said a paternity test
on Castro was being done to
establish who fathered Berry’s
6-year-old daughter.
At a news conference,
authorities would not dis-
cuss the circumstances of
the women’s kidnappings or
give further details about their
ordeals. But City Councilman
Brian Cummins said: “We
know that the victims have
confirmed miscarriages, but
with who, how many and what
conditions we don’t know.”
“It sounds pretty grue-
some,” he added.
Castro was in custody
Wednesday and couldn’t
be reached for comment. A
brother-in-law has said the
family was shocked after
hearing about the women at
the home.
Neighbors said that over
the years, Castro took part
in the search for one of the
women, Gina DeJesus, helped
pass out fliers, performed
music at a fundraiser for her
and attended a candlelight
vigil, at which he comforted
her mother.
None of the women
said anything that indicat-
ed Castro’s brothers, Pedro
Castro, 54, and Onil Castro,
50, were involved, Tomba
“Ariel kept everyone at a
distance,” he said.
A court hearing for Ariel
Castro was set for this morn-
The deputy chief also said
there was no evidence to indi-
cate any of the women had
been outside without clothes,
despite claims from a neigh-
bor who said a naked woman
was seen crawling around the
Cleveland police have dis-
puted claims by neighbors
that officers had been called
to the house before for sus-
picious circumstances. They

E - The Environmental
Dear EarthTalk: I heard that a number
of beer brewing companies have banded
together to support the Clean Water Act.
Can you enlighten?
— Mitch Jenkins, Cincinnati, OH
In April 2013 the non-profit Natural
Resources Defense Council (NRDC) brought
together two dozen nationally respected craft
beer brewers to launch the Brewers for Clean
Water Campaign, which aims to leverage the
economic growth of the craft brewing sector
into a powerful voice for bolstering clean
water protection in the United States.
“Whether brewers are creating ales, pil-
sners, porters, wits or stouts, one ingredi-
ent must go into every batch: clean water,”
says Karen Hobbs, a senior policy analyst at
NRDC. “Craft brewers need clean water to
make great beer.”
While hops, malt and the brewing process
itself are also clearly important, water just
may be the secret ingredient that gives a
specific beer its distinctive flavor. “Beer is
about 90 percent water, making local water
supply quality and its characteristics, such as
pH and mineral content, critical to beer brew-
ing and the flavor of many classic brews,”
reports NRDC. “For example, the unusually
soft water of Pilsen, from the Czech Republic,
helped create what is considered the original
gold standard of pilsner beers. The clarity and
hoppiness of England’s finest India Pale Ales,
brewed since the 1700s in Burton-on-Trent,
result from relatively high levels of calcium
in local water.” Brewers can replicate the fla-
vors of beers like these and others by sourcing
freshwater with similar features or by starting
with neutral water and adding minerals and
salts accordingly to bring out certain desired
Of course, clean water is essential to more
than great-tasting beer. “It’s critical for pub-
lic health and the health of a wide range of
industries,” adds NRDC. “Now our streams,
wetlands and water supply need our help.
Without strong legal protections, they are
under threat from pollution like sewage, agri-
cultural waste, and oil spills.”
The popularity of craft brewers’ “micro-
brews” in recent years is another reason why
NRDC has hitched its clean water wagon
to the industry. “Craft brewers are closely
tied to their communities with a very real
understanding of the impacts bad policy can
have on regional water sources,” reports the
group. “While the participants in the cam-
paign include brewing operations large and
small, all have demonstrated a commitment
to sustainability in their operations and beer
By taking part in the campaign, New
Belgium, Sierra Nevada, Allagash, Short’s,
Temperance, Arbor, DryHop, Finch’s,
Revolution, Flossmoor, Cranker’s, Wild
Onion, Right Brain, Half Acre, Goose Island
and other craft brewers are helping spread the
word in a way that hits home with consum-
ers. For its part, NRDC is urging beer lov-
ers (and other concerned environmentalists)
to use the form on its website to e-mail the
White House encouraging President Obama
to finalize guidelines recently created by
the Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency that call for
greater protections for streams and wetlands
in important headwaters regions from coast
to coast. And consumers should be glad to
know that for once drinking beer can actually
be good for the environment. So bottoms up!

Man returned from
prison to answer
charges from 2002
DHI Correspondent
VAN WERT - A Van Wert
County man who is currently
incarcerated has been indict-
ed on a charge of rape and
sexual battery from an alleged
incident dating back to 2002.
Bobby Panning, 39, entered
not guilty pleas to both charg-
es at a hearing on Wednesday
morning in Van Wert County
Court of Common Pleas.
According to Van
Wert County Sheriff Tom
Riggenbach, new information
was presented to detectives
with the Sheriff’s Office. An
investigation led to enough
evidence to convince the
grand jury for the indictment
against Panning. According
to Riggenbach, there was
an investigation into these
charges 11 years ago, but
there was no enough evidence
discovered for an indictment.
The incident is alleged
to have occurred on Oct. 9,
2002. The charges against
Panning could earn him an
18-year prison sentence if
found guilty. The rape count
is a first-degree felony while
the sexual battery charge is a
felony of the second degree.
No bond was set at
Wednesday’s arraignment
since Panning is already
incarcerated on unrelated
charges. A pretrial on the new
charges was scheduled for
June 5.
Twelve others were
arraigned Wednesday morn-
ing before Van Wert County
Common Pleas Court Judge
Charles D. Steele.
Cody McGinnis, 29, Van
Wert, pleaded not guilty to
second-degree felony endan-
gering children. McGinnis
was released on bond and
ordered to have no contact
with the alleged victim. A
pretrial hearing was set for

State provides simulators for police training
Information submitted
VAN WERT - Members of the
Van Wert Police Department, the
Van Wert County Sheriff’s Office,
the Convoy Police Department, and
the Ohio City Police Department
received additional training earlier
this week when the Ohio Attorney
General’s new Ohio Police Officer
Mobile Training Academy (OPOTA)
was featured at an event at Vantage
Vocational School this week.
In a press release, Van Wert
Police Chief Joel Hammond stated,
“This new mobile academy platform
allows agencies to have access to the
latest driving and firearms simula-
tors along with expert instructors
for free, because they are paid from
the casino proceeds that the State of
Ohio receives.”
Deputies and officers took their
turns in both driving and firearms
“Firearms Training was offered on a
MILO Range Pro simulators that feature
about 425 scenarios, scenario-authoring
software, and a library of firearms drills
and exercises. The simulators use high-
definition video and recoil weapons,
tasers, and other realistic equipment,”
explained Hammond. “The driving
training was conducted in a PatrolSim
driving simulator, which feature pro-
grammable dashboards able to replicate
those of all popular cruisers. Instructors
can use provided scenarios or build their
own to focus on answering high-risk
calls, conducting pursuits, clearing inter-
sections, and other skills. The simulators
are housed in climate-controlled trailers,
allowing instruction to take place right
next to local departments’ facilities.
This driving simulator was used to give law enforcement officers experience
in high risk situations. Above, a Van Wert Sheriff’s deputy tries his hand in the
simulator. (Submitted photo)

Corn planting in Northern Ohio
Assistant Professor
Putnam County
Many farmers are now just starting to plant corn. For
Northern Ohio, the ideal time to plant corn is late April until
May 10 for optimal corn yields. In the Midwest, estimated
yield losses for corn are about 0.3% per day initially reaching
about 1 percent loss per day by the end May (Nielsen, 2013).
Yield losses are based on many factors including the risks
of hot dry conditions during pollination, insect and diseases
pressures, and a shorter growing season; which may or may
not occur. In 2010-2011, late planted crops produced great
yields because of timely summer rains.
According to Peter Thomison, OSU corn specialist,
“Lower grain yields are not a certainty with late plantings.
While delayed planting may cause slightly lower yields,
planting date is just one of many factors that influence corn
yield. Weather conditions (rainfall and temperature) in July
and August are probably the most important yield factors.
However, if late planted crops experience severe moisture
stress during pollination and grainfill; crop yields may be
significantly lower than average.”
Dr. Peter Thomison and Robert Mullen offer some
suggestions on planting corn late (next six paragraphs).
Avoid tilling and planting corn when the soil is too wet.
“Mudding” corn in and soil compaction cause the great-
est yield loss. Soil compaction may reduce yields only
slightly in the year it was initiated. However, soil compac-
tion effects may be felt for several months or years later,
generally when dry weather occurs and crop roots fail to
grow, limiting water intake.
For spring nitrogen application, anhydrous N may be
applied as close as a week before planting unless hot, dry
weather is predicted. In late planting seasons associated with
wet cool soil conditions, growers should consider side-dress-
ing anhydrous N (or UAN liquid solutions) and applying a
minimum of 30 lb/N broadcast or banded to stimulate early
seedling growth and allows greater time for planting.
Crop requirements for P and K can often be met with
starter applications placed in bands two inches to the side
and two inches below the seed. With higher soil temperatures
and later planting, there is less benefits from starter fertilizer
unless the soil test level is below the critical level. No-till
benefits the most from P and K starter fertilizer.

rolling toward the tournament.
St. John’s and Lima Central Catholic were
trying to do that Wednesday at Players Field
at LCC, even enduring a 1-hour, 15-minute
weather delay to get their makeup game in.
The host Thunderbirds broke out of a mid-
season batting slump and got solid pitching
from a pair of hurlers to crunch the Blue Jays
12-2 in five innings.
LCC combined for 12 hits and eight walks
against a pair of Blue Jay hurlers.
“We didn’t throw strikes; that’s what it
came down to tonight. If you can’t throw
strikes, you don’t keep teams form scor-
ing and don’t give your defense a chance,”
St. John’s coach Ryan Warnecke explained.
“Then they hit the ball real well. Offensively,
we had some hits and chances but didn’t
come through with enough crucial hits. We’re
trying to get focused for the tournament,
which starts for us next Thursday, and get
ourselves right, especially at the plate.”
Curtis Geise led off the Blue Jay (5-13)
first against Sam Heider rehabbing starter
by scoring small-ball style: free pass, stolen
base, 1-out stolen base and throwing error on
the play for a 1-0 edge.
The Thunderbirds (14-9) took the lead for
good with two in the home half — with the
game delayed when umpires saw lightning
with cleanup hitter Ben Stolly at the dish
with a 1-1 count — against Jays’ southpaw
Drew Wagner (0-5), who struggled with con-
trol: two walks and two hits, with Corey
O’Dowd’s (2-for-3, 2 runs) liner to left plat-
ing Drew Jennings (2-for-2, 2 run) for a 2-1
edge. Earlier, an error on a sacrifice bunt by
Jennings plated Sam Huffman.
The Jays mounted a challenge in the sec-
ond: leadoff walk to T.J. Hoersten, a Clay
Courtney sacrifice and a Wagner bloop to
left center and subsequent steal. A 2-out walk
to Ben Wrasman loaded the sacks but Geise
lined out hard to centerfielder Huffman to
leave them that way.
LCC put up a 5-spot in the second, chasing
Wagner for Gage Seffernick. They compiled
four bases-on-balls, including a bases-loaded
one to Jake Williams; three hits — with RBI
liners from Nick Watkins and Brad Stolly
(2-for-3, 2 RBIs) — and a sac fly by Tom
Judy, plating Ben Stolly. A wild pitch that
scored Heider was the first run of the half
frame. When the final out was recorded on
a throw from leftfielder Ben Wrasman to
Buescher at home to nab Williams, the score
was 7-1, hosts.
The Jays got within 7-2 in the third against
reliever Trevor Hoff (2-0): Troy Warnecke
leadoff single, force-out grounder by Ryan
Buescher, Double to the left-field corner by
Andrew Metzger and a wild pitch.
LCC put two more up in the home half
on a 1-out sacrifice fly by Watkins (scoring
Heider) and three hits, one a 2-out double
that hit the base of the fence in center by Ben
Stolly, scoring Jennings for a 9-2 edge. The
T-Birds made it 11-2 in the bottom half of the
fourth on two walks, a run-scoring single by
Brad Stolly (Williams) and a 1-out Huffman
sacrifice fly (Hoff). St. John’s got two on
with two out in the fifth: Buescher (hit by
pitch) and Metzger (free pass); but left them
With one in the LCC fifth, O’Dowd nearly
ended it with a walk-off homer to left but
hit just under the yellow line for a double;
he scored as pinch-hitter Ethan O’Connor
singled to right to end the game.
“Sam (Heider) has been battling shoulder
problems, so we wanted to see what he could
do; he was a on a strict pitch count and when
the weather came, we took him out,” LCC
coach John Schneiders noted. “What we saw
out of Trevor tonight was what we saw in
the gym this spring; a very capable pitcher.
We snapped out of an offensive slump over
the last 4-5 games; we weren’t even getting
sacrifices in that span. We’ve got some guys
banged up and got some nice swings out
of our younger backups and we had great
patience at the plate.”

Bath slips by Crestview
Heckel, Lady ‘Dogs survive vs. Kalida
The Delphos Herald
Grove Lady Bulldogs were trying to stay
alive in the Putnam County League fast-pitch
softball race, while the Kalida LadyCats were
trying to play the role of spoiler.
In the end, behind Bulldog ace Bobbi
Heckel, Grove fulfilled its end of the bargain
in a 2-0 victory.
The hosts escaped as despite the LadyCats
loading the bases in three of the final four
innings but couldn’t score.
Kalida left runners on the corners in the
The hosts scored a run in the bottom of the
second when Micah Stechschulte hit a 1-out
single and scored on a Briana Glass base hit
to make it 1-0 after two.
In the Kalida fourth, Kaylynn Verhoff
(2-for-4), Kayla Siefker and Lanie Laudick all
reached to load the bases with none out; that
is when Heckel reared back and struck out the
next three batters she faced to get out of the
inning unscathed.
“I just wanted to get outs; I was nervous
because I let them on. It was just awesome;
I had to keep my head up. They are a good
team and I know that my team is back there to
defend me,” Heckel commented.
Grove used that momentum in their half of
the fourth. Katie Roose led off the inning with
a walk and scored on a Stechschulte fielder’s
choice, giving the home team a 2-0 lead.
“That was the difference tonight; neither
team was able to get the key hits but we were
able to get the outs when we needed it. We
ended three innings that way so that was good
for us,” Grove head coach Brian Schroeder
Pirates outslug Lady Bearcats
BLUFFTON — The Bluffton fast-pitch softball squad
outscored Spencerville 10-8 Wednesday afternoon at Bluffton.
Winning pitcher for Bluffton (5-12, 3-5 NWC) was Fruchey.
She struck out four and gave up 16 hits in her complete game
Losing pitcher for Spencerville was Alex Shumate, who
gave up 10 runs (8 earned) in six innings while walking one
and striking out 5. Leading hitters for Bluffton were Rumer
with two doubles (2 RBIs) and Palte, Fruchey and Perkins
with two hits each.
Leading hitters for Spencerville were Shelby Mulholland
(3 hits and 2 RBIs) and Shumate, Alyssa Mulholland, Haleigh
Mull, Tori Johnston (2 RBIs) and Mackenzie Ringwald (triple,
2 RBIs) with two hits each.
Spencerville falls to 4-15 (3-4 in NWC) and hosts Allen
East tonight.

Is it only a matter of time?
I refer to Toronto Blue Jay southpaw
J. A. Happ being smacked in the head by
a line drive hit by Tampa Bay’s Desmond
Jennings Tuesday night.
He suffered a minor skull fracture but
has already been released from the hospi-
tal. He himself has been quoted as telling
reporters that he considers himself very
fortunate that he “caught” the ball behind
his left ear instead of head-on.
I concur with that assessment, young
He is already looking forward to when
he can get back on the mound — when, not
if — but I think he ought to take his time.
Who knows what his reaction will be the
first time he takes the mound.
What will go through his mind when he
throws that first pitch?
I leave that for another day, my many,
many readers. The discussions that I have
seen centered around the possibility of
having major-league pitchers wearing hel-
mets or masks — you see some high
school fast-pitch players wearing them in
the field, especially pitchers, first basemen
and third basemen — to prevent such an
event from happening again.
One blessed young man

CONVOY - Bath edged
Crestview 3-2 in a well-
played baseball game
Wednesday afternoon at the
Crestview Sports Complex.
The win puts the
Wildcats at 14-11 on the
season. The Knights are
Bath got on the board
in the top of the second on
a walk to DH Eric Jordan,
an opposite-field bloop sin-
gle to right by right fielder
Jared Davis, a sacrifice bunt
by catcher Cam Jenkins and
a bloop single to left by
third baseman Seth Collins.
The Knights promptly
trumped that in the bottom
half on a walk to shortstop
Cam Etzler, a flare base
hit to right by catcher Nate
Owens and a 2-out double
to the left-centerfield gap
by center fielder Venice
After those two innings,
shortstop Etzler (who
already had three assists)
had to leave the game with
an arm injury; coach Jim
Wharton moved pitcher
Bryce Richardson to short.
Left fielder Jordan Roop
moved to the mound.
Crestview took a 2-1
lead in the bottom of the
third on a line-drive dou-
ble to the left-centerfield
gap by left fielder Damian
Helm, a ground out and a
wild pitch.
Roop cruised through
the third, fourth and fifth
innings but the ‘Cats
caught up to him in the
sixth. Center fielder Caleb
Norton led off with a walk
and left fielder Eric Heffner
smacked a single to left
that was bobbled, putting
runners at second and third.
Jordan bounced out to first
baseman Jake Harmon
unassisted, scoring Norton.
Davis then sent a flare to
shallow center that found
grass, plating Heffner with
the third Bath run, ending
the scoring.
Roop took the loss,
throwing four innings, plus
one batter in the seventh.
He yielded two earned
runs and three hits, walk-
ing three. Isaiah Simerman
pitched to four batters in
the seventh, retiring three,
one on strikes, while giving
up one hit. In the first and
second innings, Richardson
gave up an earned run on
four hits, walking one.

“He (Roop) came in and threw an
excellent game,” said Wharton. “He
kept us right in it. He pitched well
enough to win. We hit some balls but we
hit ‘em right at ‘em; that’s kind of tough.
It’s a work in progress. We’ve played a
lot of games; we’re a little sore. We’re
a little nicked up but that’s part of base-
ball. That’s part of athletics. We’ve gotta
fight through that.”
Jordan got the win, pitching the fifth
and sixth innings, giving up no runs on
two hits, striking out one. Taren Sullivan
pitched the first four innings, giving up
two earned runs and four hits, striking
out two, walking one and hitting a bat-
ter. Colin Gossard got the save, pitching
the last inning and retiring the Knights
Norton (2-for-3, 1 run) and Davis
(2-for-2, 1 RBI) led Wildcat hitters.
Owens (2-for-3, 2 run) led the
Crestview offense.
Crestview (8-0 in the Northwest
Conference) plays for an outright
NWC championship Thursday at Lima
Central Catholic. A Knight win or a
Columbus Grove (5-1 in the NWC)
loss at Lincolnview gives Crestview the
outright championship. Otherwise, the
Knights will have to await the outcome
of two more Grove conference games
(Paulding on Friday, Spencerville on
May 16).

Nevertheless, the LadyCats were not going quietly. For the

two were out. Amy Smith, Verhoff and Siefker reached on
consecutive hits but again, Heckel got a clutch out, getting
Laudick to bounce right back to the center circle to retire the

Schnipke was pitching a gem herself and got out of the inning
without another run scoring.
Kalida had two more shots and were making the most of
their at-bat in the sixth by loading the bases again. Skylar
Basinger and Schnipke were retired to account for the first
two outs but Andrea Bellman, Nichole Recker and Summer
Holtkamp all followed by getting on base to again give the
LadyCats a chance to score. As in the previous two innings,
Heckel and the Lady Bulldogs got out of the inning without a
Wildcat runner crossing the plate.
The seventh inning was much easier for Heckel as she
retired the side in order, preserving the win and keeping the
PCL hopes alive for the home team.
“That was one of our main goals this year when we started
out; I just hope that we can do it,” Heckel added.

I thought one comment in particular
— former pitcher Curt Schilling — was
insightful in response to the injury.
He asserted that major-league pitchers
themselves will never go for it because
of their ultra-competitive natures and
they feel these masks/helmets/whatever
you are potentially talking about will
hinder their ability to get major-league
hitters out, especially with the current
technology being worked on at this
Here is my reply to that — will he
change his mind if it happens again and
the guy dies? With how hard some of
these pitchers throw — seemingly more
and more are hitting near the century
mark on their fastballs — and how hard
the ball seems to be wound, you almost
can picture it happening sooner rather
than later. The odds are just too stacked
that it will happen.
I do agree with him that there needs
to be something done about the tight-
ness of the baseball — it makes the ball
come off the bat at even faster speeds
than before and makes it even harder for
pitcher to react.
Another pitcher who did get hit in
the head by a line drive last September,
then Oakland Athletics’ pitcher Brandon
McCarthy (courtesy of the Los Angeles
Angels’ Erick Aybar) and had a skull
fracture and needed surgery, has a dif-
ferent comment.
He believes that when the “technol-
ogy” can produce a product that can
adequately do the job — which he
thinks will happen — pitchers will be
wearing headgear.
Will MLB be able to force players to
use it is another question. Just like the
mouthguard in the NFL, not all players
do wear them.
I think this is something that will
have to be negotiated with the league
and the union.
With all these things that will be
looked at, well, let’s put it this way; I
do not want to be on this “committee”
— or whatever is put together to figure
it all out, if anything — to make such
We shall see if any decisions will get
Also, as usual on YouTube, there are
some knucklehead posters: one accused
Happ of “overreacting.” One even post-
ed “homerun xD.”
Read my mind — I take that back;
don’t read my mind because you might
not be normal again! — as to what I
think about these fools.
Francisco’s slam send Braves over Reds, 7-2
Luck on Indians’ side in 4-3 win over Athletics
Associated Press
Leake ended Cincinnati’s
streak of six straight sub-
par rotation performances. It
wasn’t enough to get a win.
Dan Uggla hit a pair of
solo homers off Leake, and
Juan Francisco added his
first career grand slam as
the Atlanta Braves recovered
from a stunning last-swing
loss by beating the Reds 7-2
Atlanta took two of three
in the series, the first the
Reds lost at home this sea-
son. The Reds are 13-6 at
Great American Ball Park,
the most home wins the
majors. Devin Mesoraco and
Shin-Soo Choo hit two-out
homers in the ninth inning
for Cincinnati’s 5-4 win on
Tuesday night. A day later,
one of the NL’s top power
teams got the better of it.
Atlanta came into the game
tied with Colorado for the
NL lead with 44 homers and
hit three more off Leake and
the bullplen.
“I felt good,” Leake said.
“I was mixing and match-
ing.” Uggla had solo shots in
the fourth and sixth innings
off Leake (2-2), his first mul-
tihomer game this season.
The Braves took all the
stress out of it by sending nine
batters to the plate for five
runs in the eighth off three
Reds pitchers. Francisco hit
the Braves’ first grand slam
of the season off J.J. Hoover,
the player he was traded for
last year.
His fifth homer landed
in the Braves’ bullpen down
the right field line. Francisco
said he got no extra pleasure
from hitting the grand slam
against the team that traded
him away.
“It just felt good that I
got first grand slam in major
leagues,” he said.
The top of the lineup had
a big day, too. Jordan Schafer
had three hits, and Andrelton
Simmons had a career-high
four hits in the top two spots.
Left-hander Mike Minor
(4-2) allowed four hits in
seven innings, including
Zack Cozart’s homer in the
third. He got Leake to fly out
with two out and two aboard
in the seventh, throwing 117
pitches overall. Last year,
Leake homered off Minor’s
changeup. This time, he got
nothing but fastballs.
“Minor looks like he has
more confidence than he did
last year,” Leake said.
Minor has been tough on
left-handed batters this sea-
son. Reds manager Dusty
Baker figured Leake — a
.313 hitter with 50 hits over
the last four seasons — was
his best option.
“We had a choice of let-
ting him hit or using a pinch-
hitter,” Baker said. “Not tak-
ing anything away from our
guys, but he was the best
right-handed hitter we had on
the bench.”
Jay Bruce had a solo shot
in the ninth off Anthony
The game matched start-
ing pitchers taken back-to-
back in the 2009 amateur
draft. Minor was taken sev-
enth out of Vanderbilt, with
Leake drafted next out of
Arizona State. They faced
each other in college.
AP Sports Writer
CLEVELAND (AP) — Chris Perez
has been in the middle of more than his
share of wild, dramatic finishes.
Nothing, though, will top his latest
This time, the umpires saved him.
“Luckily, we were on the right side
of it this time,” Cleveland’s colorful
closer said.
Adam Rosales’ apparent game-tying
home run off Perez with two outs in
the ninth inning was ruled a double —
even after three umpires reviewed it on
TV — and the Indians escaped with a
4-3 win over the Oakland Athletics on
Wednesday night, Cleveland’s ninth win
in 10 games.
With Perez protecting a one-run lead,
Rosales sent a drive off Perez that
looked as if it cleared the 19-foot-
high wall in left field and hit a railing.
However, second-base umpire Angel
Hernandez called it a double, and two
other members of the crew concurred
with the original ruling after leaving the
field to review the videotape.
When the umpires returned and told
Rosales to stay at second, A’s manager
Bob Melvin sprinted onto the field and
was immediately ejected.
Following the game, a miffed Melvin
couldn’t grasp what had happened.
“Inconclusive, to the only four people
in the ballpark that could say that it was
inconclusive,” Melvin said. “Everybody
else said it was a home run, including
their announcers when I came in here
later. I don’t get it. I don’t know what
the explanation would be when every-
body else in the ballpark knew it was a
home run.
“Clearly, it hit the railing. I’m at a
loss. I’m at a complete loss.”
Rosales, too, was puzzled by the
stunning events in the ninth.
“Our whole team thought it was the
wrong call,” Rosales said. “The replays
showed it hit the railing. With six eyes
on it (three umpires), you would have
thought they’d make the right call.”
Perez initially thought the ball hit the
yellow line above the 19-foot-high wall
and dropped. But after watching a replay
in the clubhouse, he was convinced the
Indians got away with a win.
“Honestly, I saw it hit the yellow line
and come down,” he said. “So I thought
it was in play still. Obviously, coming
back in here I saw different. Off the bat,
I thought it was a homer. It sounded like
a homer. But then it came down and I
thought we had some life.
“They went and reviewed it. The
longer it went, the more I thought, ‘All
right. They’re going to say it’s a homer.’
Luckily, the call came in our favor. I
don’t think I’ve ever been on the other
side of a replay like that, but I’ve defi-
nitely been on the other side of bad calls
and missed strikes and stuff like that.
“It’s part of the game. We’ll defi-
nitely take it.”
Hernandez told a pool reporter there
was not enough clear proof to overturn
the original call.
“It wasn’t evident on the TV we had
it was a home run,” Hernandez said. “I
don’t know what kind of replay you had,
but you can’t reverse a call unless there
is 100 percent evidence and there wasn’t
100 percent evidence.”
Perez wound up loading the bases
before getting the final out as the Indians
won for the ninth time in 10 games.
Nick Swisher and Carlos Santana
homered for Cleveland, which improved
to 12-4 since April 20.
Following the game, a few Indians
players scrambled to find a remote so
they could turn up the TV volume and
hear Melvin’s comments.
“If it hit the pad, it would have just hit
the pad and come down softly,” Melvin
said. “Clearly there was a ricochet.”
Under Major League Baseball rules,
once the replay is requested and the
review is made, the call stands.
Before the umpires returned to the
field, Perez seemed resigned that he had
blown the lead. Indians manager Terry
Francona, too, checked his scorecard
perhaps thinking about some moves he
might have to make because the game
was now tied.
As the umpires emerged from watch-
ing the video, Rosales leaned off the bag
at second ready to resume his home run
trot. He never got started.
With the umpires satisfied they got
the call correct, the A’s were forced to
try to tie it another way.
A romp for the Heat,
who top Bulls 115-78
The Associated Press
MIAMI — For the first time in these playoffs, the Miami
Heat were facing some real adversity.
They responded with a technical knockout.
After nine technical fouls, two ejections and a whole lot
of extracurricular pushing and shoving, the end results were
as follows: The biggest postseason win in Heat history, the
biggest postseason loss in Chicago Bulls history and tons
of fresh venom pulsing through the veins of this now-tied
Eastern Conference semifinal series. Miami won 115-78, a
stunning outcome for a game that was basically back-and-
forth for much of the first half.
That is, until the Heat started embarrassing the Bulls
and the Bulls started embarrassing themselves for good
“No matter if you win by 20, 30, or one point, it’s a 1-1
series,” Heat star LeBron James said. “They came in and did
their job. They got one on our floor and took home court.
So, we’ve got to try to go Chicago and get it back.”
Game 3 is Friday in Chicago, where the Heat will have
to win at least one game if they’re going to win the series.
Ray Allen scored 21 points in only 19 minutes, James
finished with 19 points and nine assists and the Heat led by
as many as 46 points. Sure, the Heat have lost home-court
advantage when they dropped Game 1. But this domination
made the reigning NBA champions look like the clear-cut
team to beat in this title race once again.
“We’re still in the hole,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.
Technically, yes. In actuality, maybe not.
“Today, something was different,” said Bulls guard Nate
Robinson, who made 3 of his 10 shots. “Not just with our
play, just today was just weird.”
Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson were ejected in the fourth
quarter for Chicago and the league will almost certainly
review some of the things said and done in a game that was
close for the first 20 minutes. The Bulls were called for six
player technicals, the most by any team in a playoff game
since Boston had that many against Indiana in 2005.
“I don’t know how many techs we got. … I would call
that not keeping your cool, not being very Zen,” Noah said.
Bulls forward Carlos Boozer, who scored only eight
points, said he didn’t fault his teammates for speaking their
minds — although cameras suggested that Gibson’s lan-
guage was more than a little colorful.
The Heat had three technicals assessed, a season-high
for them.
Norris Cole scored 18 points for Miami, which got 15
from Dwyane Wade and 13 from Chris Bosh. The Heat led
42-38 with 3:42 left in the first half, before going on an
absurd 62-20 run.

Sibling animosity
over ‘15-percent’
Dear Annie: My husband
is the youngest of seven
siblings. While they are all
successful, some are more
fnancially comfortable than
Five years ago, the oldest
sibling wanted to give their
mother an 80th birthday par-
ty. She planned a huge party
for hundreds of her mother’s
friends and neighbors. She
rented a party place, hired a
band and catered an elabo-
rate buffet and open bar. She
then emailed all of
the siblings and
informed them
that they each
owed her $1,000.
Annie, my hus-
band didn’t have
that kind of extra
money. He had
recently moved,
found a new job
and married me,
a graduate stu-
dent. He also pays
child support for
a daughter and the mortgage
on another daughter’s home,
as well as our rent.
He explained this to his
sister and said he could pay
$150. We attended the party
and enjoyed ourselves. There
was no animosity from the
sister about the money at that
time. But now she has started
making rude comments to
my husband and the other
siblings via Facebook and
email that she is still waiting
for my husband to “step up
to the plate” and pay the rest
of his share.
Is it right for one member
of a family to plan an event
without consulting the oth-
ers and then expect them to
pony up the money request-
ed? This has caused a serious
rift between my husband and
some of his siblings. –Wife
of Mr. 15 Percent
Dear Wife: Obvious-
ly, your husband’s sister
should have discussed the
finances with her siblings if
she expected them to split
the bill. And if she is hav-
ing a problem with your
husband, she shouldn’t be
slamming him on Facebook
or in group emails. How-
ever, she did go through a
lot of trouble to plan the
party, and for five years,
she’s been out of pocket
the amount she thought
your husband would pay.
He doesn’t “owe” her the
rest. But in order to main-
tain good family relations,
your husband might speak
privately with his sister and
ask whether he could con-
tribute whatever additional
monies he can afford on an
installment plan.
Dear Annie: Please tell
the men in your reading au-
dience that women interpret
their wedding vows differ-
ently than we do.
I fnally proposed to my
girlfriend of many years. It
made such a huge difference
in our relationship, which
had been foundering a bit. I
never realized how hurt she
was by my lack of commit-
ment. She thought I didn’t
love her enough and told
me it made her feel as if she
wasn’t a part of my life or a
member of my family. She
said she felt like a house-
keeper with privileges.
Now our ability to com-
municate and enjoy things
together is so pleasurable
again. It scares me to think
we had almost given up on
each other and
might have ended
up living out our
lives apart and un-
happy. We men
don’t think about
the sense of securi-
ty it gives a woman
to know, with legal
vows, that a man
wants to spend the
rest of his life with
her. –Happy and
Alive Again
Dear Happy: In
all fairness, not all women
feel this way. But we are
glad you fgured out what
mattered to your girlfriend
and told her so. The inabil-
ity to commit is a problem
we hear a great deal about,
so we appreciate your spell-
ing it out for the relationship
Dear Annie: Please tell
“Not Anti-Social or Ad-
dicted to the Internet” that
fraternal organizations offer
a place for everyone who is
looking for friendship and
a way to become involved
and active. If one has a mili-
tary background, I suggest
checking out the American
Legion, Veterans of Foreign
Wars or one of their affliate
organizations. In addition,
there are the Elks lodges,
Eagles clubs and Masonic
organizations, to mention
a few. I belong to the Shri-
ners, and they have a great
deal of social interaction. –

Keep time expended on tillage passes to a minimum. No-till
offers the best option for planting on time this year. Field
seedbed preparation should be limited to leveling ruts that
may have been left by the previous year’s harvest - disk or
field cultivate very lightly to level. Most new planters provide
relatively good seed placement in “trashy” or crusted seedbeds.
Don’t worry about switching hybrid maturities unless plant-
ing is delayed until late May. If planting is possible before May
20, plant full season hybrids first to allow them to exploit the
growing season because earlier-maturity hybrids lose less yield
potential than the later-maturing, full-season hybrids.
In delayed planting situations, use the optimal seeding rates
for the yield potential of each field. Recommended seeding
rates for early planting dates are often 10 percent higher than
the desired harvest population due to greater seedling mortal-
ity. However, soil temperatures are usually warmer in late
planted fields, so seeding rates may be lowered 3-5 percent due
to less seedlings mortality.
When is a good time to kill cover crops? If the soil is wet
and rain is expected, do not kill the cover crop until right
before planting. The cover crop will transpire moisture and dry
out the soil. For crop insurance purposes, kill the cover crop
before the new crop is planted, which may be the same day. It
is easier to plant into a live crop than it is to plant into a cover
crop that is dead. If you kill it too early, the residue may go
down and keep the soil from drying out. The planter tends to
“hair pin” and the dead residue will wrap on the planter unit.
For legume crops like crimson clover or winter pea, letting
the crop grow until they flower adds nitrogen. For cereal rye,
avoid planting to corn; however, cereal rye makes an excellent
cover crop for soybeans. Kill the cereal rye right before or as
you are planting soybeans, unless it turns dry; then kill it early.
Add 40-50 pounds of N/Acre as a starter with all cover crops
to give corn a good start.
Arias convicted of first-degree murder in boyfriend’s death
Associated Press
PHOENIX (AP) — Jodi Arias
spent 18 days on the stand sharing
intimate, emotional and oftentimes
X-rated details of her life before a
rapt television and online audience.
She had hoped it all might convince
a jury that she killed her one-time
boyfriend in self-defense.
But the eight men and four
women on the panel didn’t buy
it, convicting Arias of first-degree
murder after only about 15 hours of
deliberations. Jurors will return to
court today to begin the next phase
of the trial that could set the stage
for Arias receiving a death sentence.
The case elevated the unknown
waitress and aspiring photogra-
pher to a household name, with
a real-life story of love, betrayal
and murder far more alluring than
any made-for-TV movie. The crime
itself was enough to grab headlines:
Arias, a 32-year-old high school
dropout, shot Travis Alexander in
the forehead, stabbed him nearly
30 times and slit his throat from
ear to ear, leaving the motivational
speaker and businessman nearly
She claimed he attacked her and
she fought for her life. Prosecutors
said she killed out of jealous rage
after Alexander wanted to end their
affair and planned to take a trip to
Mexico with another woman.
Arias’ four-month trial quickly
became a media sensation — rat-
ings gold for cable networks that
could broadcast from inside the
courtroom and feed an insatiable
public appetite for true-crime drama
delivered live and up-close. It was,
for many, the horrible train wreck
they just couldn’t turn away from,
even though they know they should.
Arias fought back tears as the
verdict was announced Wednesday
in the hushed, packed courtroom,
while Alexander’s family members
wept and hugged each other. They
wore blue ribbons and wristbands
with the words “Justice For Travis.”
The family thanked prosecutor Juan
Martinez and a key witness and
said it appreciated the outpouring of
support from the public.
Outside, a huge crowd that had
gathered on the courthouse steps
screamed, whistled and cheered the
news in a case that has attracted
fans from across the country who
traveled to Phoenix to be close
to the proceedings. Some chanted,
Alexander’s friend Chris Hughes
said he was happy with the verdict,
pointing out a bold proclamation
that Arias made in one of her jail-
house interviews that she wouldn’t
be found guilty.
“She said, ‘No jury would con-
vict me. Mark my words.’ This
jury convicted her,” Hughes said.
“Luckily we had 12 smart jurors.
They nailed it.”
Arias’ mother, Sandra Arias,
declined to comment.
Testimony began in early
January. The trial quickly snow-
balled into a made-for-the-tabloids
drama, garnering daily coverage
from cable news networks and
spawning a virtual cottage industry
for talk shows, legal experts and
even Arias, who used her notoriety
to sell artwork she made in jail.
Jurors got the case Friday after-
The trial now moves into the
so-called aggravation phase during
which prosecutors will argue the
killing was committed in an espe-
cially cruel, heinous and depraved
manner that should allow jurors to
consider the death penalty. Both
sides may call witnesses and show
evidence. If the panel finds the
aggravating factors exist, the trial
then moves into the final penalty
phase during which jurors will rec-
ommend either life in prison or
Authorities said Alexander
fought for his life as Arias attacked
him in a blitz, but he soon grew too
weak to defend himself.
“Mr. Alexander did not die calm-
ly,” prosecutor Juan Martinez told
jurors in opening statements.
Arias said she recalled Alexander
attacking her in a fury after a day
of sex. She said Alexander came
at her “like a linebacker,” body-
slamming her to the tile floor. She
managed to wriggle free and ran
into his closet to retrieve a gun he
kept on a shelf. She said she fired
in self-defense but had no memory
of stabbing him.
She acknowledged trying to
clean the scene of the killing, dump-
ing the gun in the desert and work-
ing on an alibi to avoid suspicion.
She said she was too scared and
ashamed to tell the truth. However,
none of Arias’ allegations that
Alexander had physically abused
her in the months before his death,
that he owned a gun and had sexual
desires for young boys, were cor-
roborated by witnesses or evidence
during the trial. She acknowledged
lying repeatedly before and after
her arrest but insisted she was tell-
ing the truth in court.
Arias spent 18 days on the wit-
ness stand describing an abusive
childhood, cheating boyfriends,
dead-end jobs, a shocking sexual
relationship with Alexander, and
her contention that he had grown
physically violent.
Psychologist Richard Samuels
testified for the defense that Arias
suffered from post-traumatic stress
disorder and dissociative amnesia,
which explained why she couldn’t
recall much from the day of the
killing. Another defense witness,
psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette,
concluded that Arias was a battered

Ohio gov hasn’t lost hope
on Medicaid expansion
Associated Press
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Gov. John Kasich hasn’t given
up hope that the Legislature will expand Medicaid under the
federal health care law, even though the plan is unlikely to be
included state’s two-year budget.
Kasich, a Republican, told reporters Wednesday that he’s
giving lawmakers some breathing room to review Medicaid,
the federal-state health care program for the poor and disabled.
“I’ll be combative when I have to be combative,” he said.
“But there are times when you just have to be patient, and I’m
willing to be patient here with our friends in the Legislature.”
Kasich’s fellow Republicans who control the Ohio House
dropped Medicaid expansion from the state’s two-year budget
before sending it to the Senate last month. And the Senate’s
GOP leader has said his chamber’s version of the spending
plan won’t include expansion.
House lawmakers have started examining potential changes
to Medicaid and exploring what the state can do to give ben-
eficiaries a pathway out of the program and into private health
care. Senate President Keith Faber, a Celina Republican, also
has said that Medicaid reform is not dead in Ohio.
