The set-up fee is $975 and each sub contact will be $2.95. “This will take a huge load off the administration,” Mangas said. “We did a lot with our teachers last year and it was difficult to fill those positions when needed. We spent a lot time on the phone that could have been better spent.” The board also approved numerous 1-year limited supplemental contracts for the next school year. Contracts were awarded to: Joe Modica, head softball coach; Todd Knippen, assitant softball coach; Ashley Cossgrove, assistant softball coach; Susan Jones, junior high boys track coach; Ryan Horstman, head boys track coach; Vaughn Horstman, head girls track coach; Ty Wannemacher, junior varsity baseball coach; Shawn Knodell, junior high girls track coach; Jessica Beining, assistant girls soccer coach; and Alicia Haselman, junior varsity volleyball coach. Other contracts issued included: Jeanne Bockey, one-year supplemental, High School Science Fair advisor; Jodi Koester and Judy Bosch, Summer Intervention teachers; and Jodie Koester and Kevin Blake, one-year supplemental, mentors for the Resident Educator Program. Mangas gave his update which included preliminary results from the Ohio Achievement Assessments. Third-grade results include 100-percent passage in Reading and 97 percent in Math; fourth grade — 100 percent in Reading and 93 percent in Math; fifth grade — 87 percent in Reading and 96 percent in Math and Science; sixth grade — 89 percent in Reading and 85 percent in Math; seventh grade — 96 percent in Reading and Math; and eighth grade — 100 percent in Reading, 92 percent in Math and 88 percent in Science.

Delphos, Ohio

Ottoville School Board, union OK 3-year contract
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor nspencer@delphosherald.com OTTOVILLE — A threeyear agreement between the Ottoville School Board and Ottoville Local Education Association was approved at Wednesday’s meeting. The terms of the contract include a 1.75-percent raise the first and second year and a 1.5-percent raise the third. Superintendent Scott Mangas said the majority of the meetings with the teachers’ union was spent on hammering out the details of teacher evaluation language and regulations now required by law to be included in negotiated contract language. The teachers’ share of the cost of insurance benefits remained 10 percent. Last summer’s storm damage from June (wind) and August (lightning) took a toll on the school’s insurance policy renewal for July 1 through June 30, 2014. The renewal with the Schools of Ohio Risk Sharing Authority (SORSA) Insurance Program through Fawceett, Lammon, Recker and Assoc. Insurance Agency, Inc., for property, fleet, liability and excess insurance needs was increased more than $5,000 due to the district’s frequency of claims. “We knew we had a lot of claims but they weren’t through negligence,” Treasurer Bob Weber said. “SORSA realizes that but our claims did put us in a higher risk category. Hopefully, we won’t have as many claims in the next couple of years and that will come back down.” Three new teachers will join the staff for the 201314 school year. Renee Burgei and Julie Eickholt are the district’s new kindergarten teachers; and Michelle Leach is the new guidance counselor. School Maintenance Supervisor Tim Kimmet will receive a 5-year contract. Mangas said he and the rest of the staff and administration were extremely pleased with Kimmet’s work. The administration will get a little help when it comes

Spencerville gearing up for 2013 Summerfest
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com SPENCERVILLE—The Village of Spencerville is gearing up for three days of family-friendly activities and good food during the 2013 Summerfest. Events begin today and run through Saturday night. Summerfest Coordinator Ida Kay Keller and her small 10-person committee — firefighters and car club members — have been working diligently since the end of last year’s festival to organize this year’s events. New this year is the Shopping on the Square Vendor/ Craft Show, which will be held at the Village Park at Pearl and Second streets from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday. Event Chair Gina Fox said that normally the event, which is a fundraiser, is held in May. This year, the Summerfest Committee and she decided to hold it during the festival. “We are separate from the festival,” Fox said. “We donate our proceeds to the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA), which will be dispersed between different families in Ohio.” Fox said there are close to 34 vendors taking part in Shopping on the Square selling clothing, rhinestonedecorated headbands and T-shirts, purses, candles, skin care products and hand-made woodwork crafts. The Girls Scouts will be on hand selling baked goods and there will be a 50/50 prize raffle drawing with the prizes donated by vendors. “Many of the same fun events — community garage sales, carnival rides, car show, parade and fireworks — will take place this year,” Keller said. At 6 p.m. today, there will be a Kiddie Pedal Tractor Pull in the Huntington Bank parking lot and a Corn Hole Tournament with registration at the adult beverage tent. See SPENCERVILLE, page 3

Deborah Carder Mayes will present “Prisoner of War Experiences of Two Union Soldiers” program at 6:30 p.m. on Monday in the First Edition Building of the Delphos Public Library.

Associated Press Today is Thursday, June 27, the 178th day of 2013. There are 187 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 27, 1963, President John F. Kennedy spent the first full day of a visit to Ireland, the land of his ancestors, stopping by the County Wexford home of his great-grandfather, Patrick Kennedy, who’d emigrated to America in 1848. On this date: In 1787, English historian Edward Gibbon completed work on his six-volume work, “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.” In 1844, Mormon leader Joseph Smith and his brother, Hyrum, were killed by a mob in Carthage, Ill. In 1846, New York and Boston were linked by telegraph wires. In 1893, the New York stock market crashed. In 1922, the first Newberry Medal, recognizing excellence in children’s literature, was awarded in Detroit to “The Story of Mankind” by Hendrik Willem van Loon. In 1942, the FBI announced the arrests of eight Nazi saboteurs put ashore in Florida and Long Island, N.Y. (All were tried and sentenced to death; six were executed while two were spared for turning themselves in and cooperating with U.S. authorities.) In 1944, during World War II, American forces liberated the French port of Cherbourg from the Germans. In 1950, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution calling on member nations to help South Korea repel an invasion from the North. In 1957, more than 500 people were killed when Hurricane Audrey slammed through coastal Louisiana and Texas. In 1977, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down state laws and bar association rules that prohibited lawyers from advertising their fees for routine services. In 1988, at least 56 people were killed when a commuter train ran into a stationary train at the Gare de Lyon terminal in Paris. In 1991, Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first black jurist to sit on the nation’s highest court, announced his retirement. (His departure led to the contentious nomination of Clarence Thomas to succeed him.) Ten years ago: More than 735,000 phone numbers were registered on the first day of a national do-not-call list aimed at blocking unwelcome solicitations from telemarketers. Five years ago: North Korea destroyed the most visible symbol of its nuclear weapons program, the cooling tower at its main atomic reactor at Yongbyon. (However, North Korea announced in September 2008 that it was restoring its nuclear facilities.) In Zimbabwe, roaming bands of government supporters heckled, harassed or threatened people into voting in a runoff election in which President Robert Mugabe was the only candidate. One year ago: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and former Irish Republican Army commander Martin McGuinness offered each other the hand of peace during a private meeting inside Belfast’s riverside Lyric Theatre. A 22-year-old former Texas Tech University student from Saudi Arabia, Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, was convicted in Amarillo of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. (He later received life in prison.) Today’s Birthdays: Business executive Ross Perot is 83. Former Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt is 75. Singer-musician Bruce Johnston (The Beach Boys) is 71. Fashion designer Vera Wang is 64. Actress Julia Duffy is 62. Actress Isabelle Adjani is 58. Country singer Lorrie Morgan is 54. Actor Brian Drillinger is 53.

Van Wert County unemployment rate inches upward
BY ED GEBERT DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com

cats live significantly longer lives than their free-roaming counterparts. “Life for outdoor cats is risky,” reports the group. “They can get hit by cars; attacked by dogs, other cats, coyotes or wildlife; contract fatal diseases, such as rabies, feline distemper, or feline immunodeficiency But the fact that feral cat populations have gotten so large in recent years makes the problem that much more vexing. Researchers concede that efforts to catch and either neuter or euthanize feral cats have proven ineffective given their booming populations, leaving cat owners wondering whether jeopardizing Fluffy’s mental health for the sake of saving a few birds is really even worthwhile.

VAN WERT — After a big drop in April, the unemployment rate in Van Wert County took a step back up in May. The latest civilian labor force estimates released Tuesday by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services show the jobless rate locally bumped upward from 6.5 percent in April to 6.7 percent in May. That trend held true throughout the region and in 55 of Ohio’s 88 counties. The only area exception was in Putnam County, where the rate dropped one-tenth to 5.8 percent. The state unemployment rate was unchanged in May at 7.0 percent. Van Wert County estimates of unemployed workers, employed workers, and total work force did not change since the April report. The estimates again showed 900 unemployed and 12,600 employed to make a total work force of 13,500. The report lists Van Wert County tied with the 54thlowest jobless rate in Ohio. The five lowest rates in the state belong to Union County (5.2 percent), Auglaize County (5.1 percent), Delaware County (4.9 percent), Holmes County (4.7 percent) and Mercer County (4.3 percent). That rate in Mercer County actually rose in May from April’s 4.1 percent figure. Around the area, Allen County had the largest rise in the region, going from 7.4 percent in April to 7.7 percent in May. Paulding County’s rate stepped from 6.4 percent in the previous report to 6.5 percent in the current figures. Just as Mercer County has had the lowest unemployment rate in the state for many months, Pike County has had the highest rate in Ohio for more than two years. In May, Pike County’s top rate dropped to 11.9 percent, followed by Meigs County at 11.1 percent, Scioto County with 11.0 percent, Adams County at 10.6 percent, Jefferson County with 10.3 percent, and Morgan County at 10.1 percent.

E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: I understand that pet cats prey on lots of birds and other “neighborhood” wildlife, but isn’t it cruel to force felines to live indoors only? And isn’t human encroachment the real issue for bird populations, not a few opportunistic cats? — Jason Braunstein, Laos, NM While it is true that habitat loss as a result of human encroachment is a primary threat to birds and wildlife of all kinds, outdoor cats are no doubt exacerbating the loss of biodiversity as their numbers swell and they carry on their instinctual business of hunting. The Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute’s Peter Marra estimates that outdoor cats in the United States, counting both pets and feral animals, kill up to 3.7 billion birds each year—along with up to 20 billion other small mammals. Researchers estimate that roughly 114 million cats live in the contiguous U.S., 84 million of them pets and the rest feral—and that as many as 70 percent of pet cats spend some time roaming outside and hunting. “Cats are a nonnative species,” reminds Marra, adding that they often target native species and can transform places that would normally harbor many young birds into “sinks that drain birds from neighboring populations.” As a result of this ongoing predation, many environmentalists and animal lovers think cats should stay inside. “The big message is responsible pet ownership,” Marra says. He acknowledges that feral cats may be the bigger problem, but pet cats still catch as many as two billion wild animals a year. The non-profit American Humane Association reports that there are several ways to keep indoor cats happy even though they are restricted from chasing and hunting wildlife. Getting Fluffy a companion (another cat or even a dog) is a good way to provide an outlet for play. Likewise, interactive toys, scratching posts, cat perches and other amenities—check with any well-stocked local pet store—can make the indoor environment a stimulating yet safe one for housebound cats and should serve to prevent stir-crazy behavior. Meanwhile, another non-profit, the American Bird Conservancy (ABC), adds another reason why cat owners might want to think about restricting their pet’s territory to inside: Research shows that indoor

While habitat loss as a result of human encroachment is a primary threat to birds and wildlife of all kinds, outdoor cats, counting both pets and feral animals, no doubt exacerbate the problem by killing up to 3.7 billion birds each year — along with up to 20 billion other small mammals.

Precision Ag Technology Day to be hosted by OSU-Extension
Information submitted The OSU Extension Office in Fulton County will be holding a Northwest Ohio Precision Agriculture Technology Day—Planter Focus from 8:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 6 at the Fulton County Fairgrounds in Wauseon. This year, the event will focus on precision planter technology and will feature discussions and demonstrations from leading equipment, seed and technology professionals. John Deere Kenn-Feld Group, Archbold Equipment CaseIH/Kinze and Horsh Planters/Paul Martin and Sons are major sponsor partners for this planter focused event. The event will start with registration and sponsor exhibits at 8:15 a.m. in the Junior Fair Building. In the morning, participants will hear from Extension and Ag industry professionals who will be discussing agronomics, latest technology and data management. The first session will feature Dr. Peter Thomison, OSUE Corn Specialist, and Jeff Taylor, DuPont Pioneer Product Manager, to discuss the agronomics behind precision planter technology and research results of variable rate seeding. The program will continue with Dr. Scott Shearer, Chair of the OSU Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering, who will share “What are all the Planter Possibilities?” Former Fulton County Extension Educator and current Agronomic Field Specialist Greg LaBarge will offer suggestions on how to manage all of the precision data and discuss ownership of data. The last session before lunch will be a Precision Ag Panel including representatives from the seed, consulting and technology side of planting. Perhaps the most valuable part of the day will be the field demonstrations after lunch. CaseIH, Horsh, John Deere and Kinze will conduct live demonstrations with their latest and most advanced planter models available. Manufacturers are asked to highlight critical factors for maximum planter performance and successful deployment of their respective precision planter technologies. Producers will have a chance to interact and talk with manufacturers and their corresponding technology representatives. The event is free and open to the public but RSVPs are needed to get an accurate lunch count. Please contact the OSU Extension Office at 419-337-9210 or wyse.1@osu.edu with name, address and email to get registered by July 31. For a complete agenda and list of sponsors, see fulton.osu.edu. The Fulton County Fairgrounds are located at 8591 State Route 108, Wauseon. The NW Ohio Precision Agriculture Day is one of many statewide agriculture industry events through the OSUE Ag Managers Team (ohioagmanager.osu.edu) and OSUE Ag Crops Team (agcrops.osu.edu) this summer. For a complete list of statewide events, see agcrops.osu.edu/calendar website.

Soybean plants could have been harmed by recent heavy rain in the area causing certain herbicides to splash on to the plants leaves. (Photo submitted)

Rain and herbicides may have caused damage to soybeans
BY JAMES J. HOORMAN Ag Educator OSU-Extension Putnam County

Ohio wants more power to stem lake algae
COLUMBUS (AP) — State officials would have more power to stem the spread of toxic algae caused by pollution runoff from farms under a bill now in the Legislature. Changes to state law proposed in the Senate bill introduced this week would give the Ohio Department of Natural Resources the authority to cite farmers if rain washes too much fertilizer off their fields. It also would require farmers to undergo training and receive a certificate from the Ohio Department of Agriculture before spreading fertilizer. Another provision would keep the public from seeing an individual farmer’s fertilizer and manure management plans to protect any sensitive information, The Columbus Dispatch reported Wednesday. The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Cliff Hite, said he will seek comment from farmers and farm businesses over the summer. But the Republican from Findlay says state law changes might be necessary to reduce the

Dairy products fueling state and nation’s appetite
Information submitted TOLEDO — Dairy farming is not a nine to five job. Many would sum it up as a passion, lifestyle and livelihood. Ohio alone has 268,000 dairy cows across 2,931 dairy farms, ranking the state fifth in the nation in milk production plants and 11th in overall milk production. Also home to several large scale yogurt, cheese and ice cream manufacturers, Ohio is largely responsible for fueling both our state and the nation’s strong appetite for dairy products. Karen Bakies, nutrition affairs director, American Dairy Association (ADA) Mideast, will talk about nutrition, products, trends, innovations, research and the overall benefits of dairy at the monthly Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum from 8 to 9:30 a.m. July 18. The program begins at 8:30 a.m. with informal networking prior, hosted by the Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT) at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation, north of Bowling Green. On behalf of dairy farmers, ADA Mideast provides timely, sciencebased nutrition information to, and in collaboration with a variety of stakeholders committed to fostering a healthier society, including educators, school nutrition directors, health professionals, academia, industry, consumers and media. Their staff is comprised of registered dietitians, school wellness specialists and marketing and communications experts dedicated to educating the public about dairy foods’ important role in a healthy lifestyle. The Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum is an educational networking opportunity to provide information on

toxic blue-green algae that appear in Lake Erie, Grand Lake St. Marys and other Ohio lakes each summer. The algae affect the health of aquatic wildlife and public safety and put billions of dollars received annually from tourism at risk, officials have said. “This is a huge concern,” Hite said. Blue-green algae grow thicker when feeding on phosphorus in fertilizers, manure and sewage washed into streams by rain. The algae produce liver and nerve toxins that can sicken people and kill pets and wildlife. Ohio Farm Bureau Federation officials mailed letters to farmers several months ago warning them that they need to limit polluted runoff or face a government order to do so. The bureau said it needs to study the draft bill before commenting. Department of Natural Resources officials say that expanding their authority would help improve water quality now and in the future.

Valor® or Authority® herbicide damage on soybeans is showing up in Putnam County. These herbicides are pre-plant or pre-emerge herbicides. Heavy rains two weeks ago splashed these products up on the tender leaves of the newly emerging soybean plants and could potentially harm soybean growth. Often the plants appear stunted and the leaves may be crinkled or mis-shaped. Most plants should grow out of this damage but in some cases, the soybeans may need to be replanted. Good growing conditions should help the plants to recover. Here are some common warnings when using these products. Authority/Spartan contains the single active ingredient sulfentrazone. Do not apply Authority/ Apartan if soybeans have emerged, otherwise severe crop injury will result. Valor is similar to Authority and controls many common annual broadleaf weeds. Do not use more than three ounces per acre of Valor per season. Do not use Valor in soybean fields where products containing flufenacet (Axiom, Domain), alachlor (Intro), metolachlor (Dual), or dimethenamid (Outlook) will be used or crop injury may occur.

4R’s of Phosphorus Fertilizer Management: 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. July 18, Custar, NW Ag Research Branch. Phosphorus fertilizer is essential to Ohio crop production when applied at correct rates, timing and placement. But, if nutrient applications are not managed, farm field phosphorus can be lost into water resources and promote Hazardous Algal Blooms (HAB). Major water quality problems have occurred in Lake Erie, Grand Lake St. Marys and other Ohio water resources in recent years. To protect Ohio water resources, phosphorus fertilizer must be put in the right place. “Right place likely holds the greatest opportunity for improvement (in water quality as it related to farm field P loss),” according to Dr. Tom Bruulsema, the featured speaker on The Right Place to Put Phosphorus. The program is free but an email RSVP is required to nopat@live.com. Please include your name and a phone number where you can be reached in the email. Four and a half hours of CCA credits have been applied for including one hour of soil and water and three and a half hours in nutrient management. From 8 a.m. to noon on July 25: Field Crops Day at Northwestern Agricultural Research Branch: NW Ag Research Station, 4240 Range Line Road, Custar. Northwest Ohio Precision Ag Technology Day with a Planter Focus: from 8:30 a.m to 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 6, Fulton County Fair, Junior Fair Building, 8514 St. Rt. 108, Wauseon. Free program but RSVP for lunch by Aug. 2. Manure Science Review: from 8:30 a.m to 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 6 at Hord’s Livestock, 1961 St. Rt. 294, Marion (**1/4 mile west of this address).

The Green Thumb Garden Club traveled to Van Wert for their June meeting. Louise Hartwig gave a tour of her home garden explaining how she came to collect such a vast amount of beautiful plants. Louise had spoken to the club last year about the Van Wert Children’s Garden which she helps to maintain and promote. By working with a well known plant production company, Louise tests many new plants in both her own garden and the Children’s Garden to determine what plants will work well in our area of Ohio. Pictured are Karen Hartman, Lynn Rhoads, Louise Hartwig, Judy Pohlman and Mary Miller. (Submitted photo)

Thursday, June 27, 2013

I am sure that Commissioner Roger Goodell and the powers-that-be in The League have their eyes and ears attuned to the situations and they are worried. I don’t blame the union, either — unless they are promoting this “… hominy” — because you cannot control grown men. Another sad case that seems to be happening more frequently just popped up in my searches on the Internet. Former pro Steve Hendrickson — for the 49ers and the Chargers — is now suffering from severe short-term memory due to what is believed to be the many concussions he suffered — and played through — because if his hard-nosed mindset as a special-teams ace destroyer. He has been reduced to carrying a tape recorder to note all the things he did yesterday so he can “remember” them today. He apparently has not joined the current mass lawsuit brought by former players against the NFL because he feels they are opportunists. As I have written before, I have serious concerns that the days of the NFL are numbered — lesser than more — with this growing threat of The League being found “guilty” of not coming clean on the possible side effects of concussions. I’m not saying that they are guilty. Think of this; many of these cases happened decades ago and there is more and more evidence that there are irreversible side effects but even today, they still can’t pin them down exactly. More study is needed to be done to close the certainty gap. Can the NFL be truly guilty of not knowing this stuff 20, 30, even 40 years ago when it’s only been after far more intense and extensive scrutiny that we have arrived at this point? Maybe they can be if it is proven they “knew” and held back. Again, this will be a long, long — llllooonnnnggg — case. Again, you hope that some kind of justice for both sides can be achieved but since we are dealing with human beings and scrutiny, neither side will be happy — in this case, the courts probably cannot win either way unless they have the wisdom of Solomon. Some days, I’m glad I’m not a jurist!


Let justice be done for everyone
Metcalfe’s Musings

Lima Junior Golf Association

BY JIM METCALFE Sports Editor jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com Two professional football players were arrested Wednesday on murder (former New England Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez) and attempted murder (former Cleveland Browns rookie free-agent linebacker Ausar Walcott) charges. That brings to 28 the reported number of pro players who have been arrested since the Super Bowl I do not know if they are guilty or not — I leave that up to the legal system to play out and hopefully get justice done — but it brought a thought — more like a question — to my mind. It is this: is there becoming an ever-more-prevalent mindset in even our professionals of a “youowe-this-to-me” mentality — that just because they are pros and may have had to go through tough times to get to this point, they are entitled to everything, including immunity from the laws the rest of us — theoretically, at least — have to abide by? I still remember Michael Irvin’s response — when he played for the Dallas Cowboys — when he was arrested by police in the mid-90s: “Can I tell you who I am”. Maybe these comments are all snot bubbles and these allegations against the two newest arrestees will prove to be false — you want to give them the benefit of the doubt because it could simply be a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and a situation escalated too fast. I will keep up with this case as best I can. However, if they are true, it troubles me. The NFL has always been my favorite league — ever since I can remember — and to see it seemingly taken over by this attitude leaves my shivering.

Local Round Up
Cougars bash Titans 9-2 By Charlie Warnimont DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com GLANDORF — Van Wert wanted to jump on Ottawa-Glandorf right away. They did just that. But the Cougars didn’t stop there. Van Wert had an even better second inning on their way to a 9-2 ACME win over the Titans on a warm and overcast night at the Field of Dreams in Glandorf. Justice Tussing got the Cougar offense going against O-G starter Ben Deitering as he worked a walk and stole second base. Cody Keirns laid down a sacrifice bunt that was misplayed, which allowed Tussing to race home with a run as Keirns was safe at first base. After an out, Tyler Williams lined a single to left before Kevin Agler bounced a ball up the middle that was fielded by Titan shortstop Brad Croy at the bag. Croy stepped on second for an out but when his throw to first bounced in the dirt, it allowed Agler to reach base and Keirns to race home with the Cougars’ second run of the inning. Ottawa-Glandorf had a scoring the ball. The next two Van Wert batters were retired, before Henry singled to left to score a run before he stole second base. After a walk to Williams, Agler lined a double to the left-center field gap to score two runs. Down 7-0 after an inning and a half, O-G saw its offense cut into the Cougar lead with two runs in the bottom of the second. With one out, Jordan Diemer lined a single to center and took second on a wild pitch. After a strikeout, Herm Recker lined a pitch to right that scored Diemer and Recker took second base when the right fielder had trouble coming up with the ball. Chandler Kersh followed with a single to right and O-G loaded the bases when Croy worked a walk. A passed ball allowed Recker to score before a groundout to second base ended the inning. The second inning was the last O-G really had a scoring threat — until the seventh — when they loaded the bases with one out. The Titans had base runners in every inning but could not string any hits together as Van Wert pitchers Henry and Agler combined to shut them down. See ROUND UP, page 7

threat in the bottom of the first but ran themselves out of the opportunity. With runners at second and third and one out, Deitering hit a ground ball back towards the mound that Brandt Henry snared. He got Croy in a rundown and he was eventually tagged out at the plate by first baseman Agler. Austin Williams, who was on second, made a late attempt to try and reach third base and was thrown out trying to advance. Jake Williamson opened the Cougar second by working a walk and Joe Lisa followed with a single to right. A wild pitch allowed the runners to advance a base before Jacob Brown singled to right to score both and Brown took second when the O-G rightfielder bobbled

OAKLAND, Calif. — No need for A.J. Griffin to glance over his shoulder at the bullpen. This game was all his to finish, something that seemed far-fetched when he walked two of the game’s first three batters. Griffin tossed a 2-hitter for his first win in more than a month, Josh Donaldson hit a 3-run homer and the Oakland Athletics beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-0 on Wednesday for a sweep of their 2-game series. Griffin (6-6) struck out seven and walked two in a 108-pitch gem for his first career complete game. “I was trying not to think about it because I was hoping I wasn’t going to blow it,” Griffin said. “Obviously, I get a little extra adrenaline going there.” The shaggy-haired right-hander had been 0-3 in five starts since winning at Houston on May 25. He didn’t allow a hit until Devin Mesoraco’s 1-out single in the fifth and Xavier Paul added a 2-out double in the seventh for Cincinnati. Griffin’s mother, Kathy Griffin — “not that one,” he quipped of the comedian — attended her first game of the season at the Coliseum to see his stellar start. With an off day today, the pitcher planned to take his mom and girlfriend to a nice dinner. It’s been a while since he has felt celebratory. The A’s had lost each of his last five starts. “I was getting tired of not personally me (not) getting a win but going out there every fifth day and the team losing,” Griffin said. Pinch-hitter Nate Freiman and Brandon Moss each hit an RBI double for Oakland.

Griffin gave the A’s starters their first decision in four games after Oakland went three in a row without one for the first time this year. He struck out Jay Bruce swinging for a 1-2-3 ninth to end the 2-hour, 20-minute game — looking as strong late as he did early. “The first two guys of the game it looked like his command might not be there,” manager Bob Melvin said. “Then he found it and was spectacular.” Oakland’s fourth inning provided all the run support Griffin needed. Donaldson connected to highlight a 4-run fourth after hitting a 2-run homer in Tuesday night’s 7-3 victory. Homer Bailey (4-6) faced just two over the minimum through three innings and then ran into trouble in the fourth. He struck out seven and walked two in six innings in losing his second straight decision. Oakland got four straight hits to start the fourth, taking a 1-0 lead on Moss’

double. Jed Lowrie was nearly caught at third by a sprinting Yoenis Cespedes, who held up as Lowrie ran home but missed the bag before reaching back to touch the plate as catcher Mesoraco lost the ball. Derrick Robinson and Joey Votto pulled off a double steal in the first to put runners on second and third but Cincinnati missed more chances a day after stranding 11 baserunners. “Everybody is going to have a streak like this. It didn’t matter because we didn’t score any runs,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “You could, ‘Homer did this or did that’ but we had no chance, even if it was 1-0. Not only are we not scoring runs but we’re not getting any hits either. It’s not anything you want to do.” The Reds are scheduled to get second baseman Brandon Phillips back from paternity leave Friday at Texas. Baker even had his team hit an abbreviated batting practice after the night game because “This park plays as different day

and night as anywhere in the big leagues.” The tricky sun early and shadows late can be problematic. Donaldson experienced the glaring sun when the third baseman lost the ball on Paul’s foul popup in the fourth. Stephen Vogt earned another start at catcher in place of injured starter John Jaso, a day after Vogt was promoted from Triple-A Sacramento. Griffin only shook off Vogt a couple of times, and chatted with the pitcher early to help get him back on track. “It’s really easy to call a game when a guy is executing every pitch,” Vogt said. “I’ve had quite a few big league hugs but that was a good one.” Vogt is still searching for his first major-league hit, going 0-for-3 to drop to 0-for-31 overall. Vogt was 0-for-25 with two walks in 18 games last season. Since 1990, the only longer hitless streak to open a career was 33 at-bats by Chris Carter with the A’s in 2010. NOTES : Griffin threw 73 of his pitches for strikes. … A’s CF Coco Crisp had what Melvin called a non-emergency “family issue” that the team knew about Tuesday night. He arrived during the game. “This was a planned thing,” Melvin explained. Crisp’s replacement, Chris Young, struck out four times in the leadoff spot. … Jaso missed his fifth straight start while he rested his injured left hand. Melvin expects him back Friday against St. Louis. … The A’s raised $32,000 during their annual root beer float day for the Juvenile Research Diabetes Foundation. Melvin’s grown daughter has juvenile diabetes. The game drew 25,658. … The Reds make just their second trip to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington and first since 2002.

Hernandez charged with murder, cut by Patriots
Associated Press The New England Patriots did not wait until Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder to cut ties with the troubled tight end, releasing him from the roster on Wednesday morning soon after police led him from his house in handcuffs. In a rare instance of public relations before football for one of the league’s most successful teams, the Patriots released a statement reading, “At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do.” The swift dissociation came the same day the Cleveland Browns released rookie linebacker Ausar Walcott, who has been charged with attempted murder and accused of punching a man outside a New Jersey strip club. And it comes the same week NFL rookies are gathering at the Browns’ facilities for lectures and workshops designed to help them avoid the pitfalls of professional sports. Citing fatigue from travel, Hall-of-Fame running back Jim Brown cancelled a speaking engagement with some of the NFL’s rookies. Brown had been scheduled to conduct a history lesson for AFC rookies on Wednesday at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. However, the 77-year-old former Cleveland Browns star issued a statement saying he is extremely tired and needs rest. Fellow Hall-of-Famer Mike Haynes will replace Brown, who lives in Los Angeles. From Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick’s dogfighting ring to the murder-suicide involving Kansas City linebacker Jovan Belcher, the league has struggled to keep pace with its players’ off-field problems, some of them violent. Hernandez was charged Wednesday with the slaying of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, whose bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park about a mile away from Hernandez’s North Attleborough, Mass., home. Prosecutor Bill McCauley claimed at the arraignment that Hernandez “orchestrated the crime from the beginning.” Hernandez, who was held without bail, did not enter a plea but his lawyer said the case against the 23-year-old football player “is not a strong case.” If convicted, Hernandez faces life in prison without parole. “The involvement of an NFL player in a case of this nature is deeply troubling,” the NFL wrote in a statement. “The Patriots have released Aaron Hernandez, who will have his day in court. At the same time, we should not forget the young man who was the victim in this case and take this opportunity to extend our deepest sympathy to Odin Lloyd’s family and friends.” Even as Hernandez was being arrested, the Patriots continued the business of football. The decision to release him broke up the tight end tandem of Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski that had been one of the most effective in history, a pairing of Pro Bowl players who combined for 16 touchdowns and 1,479 yards receiving last season — the most for any team at the position, according to STATS. Two years ago, with 169 catches for 2,237 yards and 24 touchdowns, the New England tight ends set NFL records in each category. Gronkowski has had five operations this offseason on his back and broken left forearm, leaving his future uncertain and New England — at least temporarily — with five other tight ends expected to be ready for the start of training camp; together they caught a total of nine passes last season. Tim Tebow, a quarterback who may be better suited for another one is looking up to me. I can’t just be young and reckless Aaron no more. I’m going to try to do the right things, become a good father and (have her) be raised like I was raised.” Browns rookie charged in NJ beating is released PASSAIC, N.J. — The Browns have released a rookie who is charged with attempted murder for allegedly punching a man in the head outside a club in northern New Jersey. Ausar Walcott turned himself in to Passaic police Tuesday after he was identified as a suspect in an incident that happened around 3 a.m. Sunday. The linebacker was signed by the Browns on May 13 following a tryout. The team announced his release Wednesday. Walcott, 23, is charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree aggravated assault and third-degree endangering an injured victim, said Salvatore Bellomo, a senior assistant prosecutor. He added the complaint alleges Walcott punched a man in the head. The Record newspaper (http://bit.ly/19t3uSU) wrote the Hackensack, N.J., native and former University of Virginia player struck 24-year-old Derrick Jones just after The Palace Gentlemen’s Club closed. Police told the newspaper that Jones, who is from New York City, was critically injured. Walcott was being held on $500,000 bail. It’s not clear if he has a defense lawyer. Walcott is the second Browns rookie to be arrested. Seventh-round selection Armonty Bryant was charged with drunken driving in Oklahoma less than one week after the Browns picked the defensive end in April’s draft. Bryant, who was also arrested on a felony drug charge in college, said Tuesday that he has been working hard to stay clean. A list of major NFL player arrests This is a look at some other notable criminal cases involving NFL or former NFL players, along with the league’s actions if they were active. ——— — MICHAEL VICK: Suspended indefinitely without pay by Commissioner Roger Goodell in 2007 when Vick pleaded guilty to dogfighting conspiracy. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback was sentenced to 23 months in federal prison. A week after being released from federal custody on July 20, 2009, and having been released by the Falcons, he was conditionally reinstated by Goodell. Less than three weeks later, he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, and played his first regular-season game in nearly three years on Sept. 27 of that year. — ADAM “PACMAN” JONES: The cornerback was suspended by Goodell for the 2007 season under the league’s personal conduct policy after multiple arrests while playing for the Tennessee Titans. Now with the Cincinnati Bengals, he has been in and out of legal trouble, with at least seven arrests over the years and involvement in about a dozen incidents that included police intervention. He recently pleaded not guilty to an assault charge after police say he hit a woman at a nightclub. If he is found guilty or accepts a plea bargain, he would be subject to another NFL suspension. — RYAN LEAF: After four unproductive and injury-plagued seasons in the NFL from 19982001, the quarterback was out of the league and ran into legal problems involving drugs. Last year, he pleaded guilty to burglary and drug possession and given a 5-year jail term. In January, he was moved from a drug treatment center to state prison in Montana for threatening a staff member and violating his treatment plan.

tight end, is also an option. With a single-minded focus on football that has made him one of the most successful coaches in NFL history, the taciturn Bill Belichick has long been willing to take a chance on talented but troubled players in hopes that a fresh start with New England and a winning environment would keep them in line. In most cases, players are given short-term deals that make it easy for the team to purge them if the problems reappear. But under the 5-year, $41 million contract extension Hernandez signed last year, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, he will cost the Patriots about $4 million under the league’s salary cap in 2013. That would include the $1.323 million salary for 2013 plus a pro-rated portion of his signing bonus, according to an NFL agent familiar with the contract who spoke on the condition of anonymity because such details are not public. Next year’s cap hit would be even worse — the $7.5 million left on his signing bonus plus his base salary of about $1.1 million,. The NFL’s collective bargaining agreement allows teams to recoup bonus money when a player is incarcerated but by releasing him the team probably lost the opportunity to take advantage of that provision, the agent added. An All-American at Florida, Hernandez’s behavior in college led him to be red-flagged entering the NFL, when several teams reportedly took him off their draft boards — refusing to pick him under any circumstances — and enough had questions about his character to let him slide all the way to New England in the fourth round. Afterward, Hernandez said he had failed a single drug test in college, reportedly for marijuana, and was honest with teams about it. And the Patriots seemed like the perfect fit. Even before Belichick became the coach, the organization tried to maintain a delicate balance — publicly stressing good character while signing players with questions in their past.

MLB Glance

In 1996, New England drafted defensive lineman Christian Peter from Nebraska in the fifth round even though he had been arrested eight times, accused of grabbing one woman around the throat and of sexually assaulting a former Miss Nebraska. “They’re not all choir boys in this league,” thencoach Bill Parcells said but the team — spurred by the wife of owner Bob Kraft — soon relinquished its draft rights to him. Nor has Belichick shied away from players with troubled pasts more recently, though none faced charges as serious as Hernandez. Among the players signed by the Patriots were receivers Randy Moss and the one known at the time as Chad Ochocinco; defensive backs Alfonzo Dennard, Aqib Talib and Brandon Meriweather; running back Corey Dillon and offensive lineman Nick Kaczur. Most had questions about their personal lives before coming to New England, already wearing out their welcome with one or more other NFL teams. Some ran into legal trouble only after signing with New England. Others, like Moss and Dillon, produced on the field for a while before the Patriots grew tired of them, too. Despite his problems in college, Hernandez seemed to be staying out of trouble in New England. But since Hernandez was connected with Lloyd’s death, other issues have become public. A South Florida man filed a lawsuit last week claiming Hernandez shot him in the face after they argued at a strip club. The man, who lost his right eye, told police after the February incident that he did not know who shot him. The Boston Globe reported that Hernandez lost his temper and threatened teammate Wes Welker during an argument in the team’s weight room shortly after being drafted. But Hernandez became a father to a daughter on Nov. 6 and he said it made him think. “I’m engaged now and I have a baby. So it’s just going to make me think of life a lot differently and doing things the right way,” he added. “Now,

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 2013 Income from more than one source will be heading your way in the coming months. It might start out as a side venture, but could become the tail that wags the dog. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -If you don’t expect too much from a social connection, you won’t be disappointed. Of course, you should still be friendly with everyone you meet. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It’s best not to make any last-minute changes to an important matter that you’re trying to wrap up. Things are likely to work out as you anticipate, or, perhaps, even better. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your best adviser might not be someone to whom you usually go for counsel. Before seeking advice from anyone else, try your mate or a close friend. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- In a matter that directly affects your work, don’t underestimate your competition. This does not mean that all your adversaries are stronger -- it just means you should watch your back. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A wise associate might influence you to change your mind about something. Don’t berate yourself for doing so; it’ll turn out to be a wise choice. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A pleasant surprise is in store when new life is breathed into an endeavor you were about to write off. This shift in conditions will produce fresh advantages. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) -- Take advantage of an opportunity to catch up with an acquaintance whom you’ve been neglecting of late. You’ll be glad you did. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Follow your judgment regarding an important career decision. Advice from others could only muddy the waters. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- There is a strong possibility that you will learn a valuable lesson. The knowledge you’ll gain will be used later to further your aims. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Both your intuitive perceptions and your logic are sharper than usual. Both will help you make the decisions you need to make. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Even if you aren’t an original thinker, chances are someone you hang out with is. You’ll know how to put his or her ideas to good use. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Anything that calls for a financial risk might not work out. However, involvements requiring hard work will pay off reliably.
