Van Wert Hospital helping smokers make a FreshStart
Information submitted VAN WERT — As the official sponsor of birthdays, the American Cancer Society encourages smokers to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking. According to an American Cancer Society report, smokers who quit can expect to live up to ten years longer than those who continue to smoke. Quitting is hard, but smokers can increase their chances of success with help. Research shows that much of the risk of premature death from smoking could be prevented by quitting. Smokers who quit, regardless of age, live longer than people who continue to smoke. Smokers who quit reduce their risk of lung cancer – 10 years after quitting, the lung cancer death rate is about half that of a continuing smoker’s. Quitting also lowers the risk for other major diseases including heart disease and stroke. “Quitting smoking is an important step towards reducing your cancer risk and

Krendl new chamber director
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor nspencer@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — New Delphos Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tara Krendl has spent the last two months learning the ropes in her new role. Krendl had been an administrative assistant at the Lima office of the YWCA of Northwest Ohio Childcare Resources and Referral before starting at the chamber. She was charge in finances, marketing and flyer and advertising design but found her job stagnant. “There was no potential for growth where I was,” she said. “I wanted more and I hope I’ve found it with the chamber. It’s a perfect combination of my interests — marketing, customer relations, event planning and I’m running a business. Those are all passions of mine.” The 2003 Jefferson graduate earned her bachelor of science in business administration at The OSU Max M. Fisher College of Business in 2009. She started on a degree in education at Wright State University after high school graduation but found the prospects of a job and her desired salary lacking. “I switched to business in 2005 at OSU and I never looked back,” she said. “It was a much better fit for me.” Krendl will handle the day-to-day operations of the chamber while promoting members and retaining and increasing membership. “I’m really leaning more toward retention right now,” she said. “I’d like to do more with the members we have and still continue

celebrating more birthdays,” said Marybeth Torsell, Health Initiatives Representative for the Society. “The FreshStart program provides great tips and tools to help you beat the urge to smoke. There has never been a better time to quit!” The American Cancer Society’s FreshStart program is designed to help participants stop smoking by providing them with all of the essential information and strategies needed to direct their own efforts at stopping. The program focuses on an active pragmatic approach to quitting smoking through active participation and group support. Participants are encouraged to apply what they learn in FreshStart to other aspects of their lives. The program is held from 7:30-8:45 p.m. on Tuesdays for four weeks beginning Sept. 10. Sessions are located at Gaylord E. Leslie Wellness Center, 140 Fox Rd. Suite 101, Van Wert. Interested individuals may register for this free series by calling 419-238-2390, ext. 345.

Krendl the networking opportunities we have like Business After Hours and the LEADS group. I want to offer more promotional opportunities on our website and Facebook. We can use technology more. I hope to ensure the chamber remains a relevant asset. I want to increase our members’ return on investment.” Krendl is the daughter of Linda Daulbaugh and the late Bill Daulbaugh and Kent and Lucy Krendl. She and long-time partner Lance Osting have two dogs, Duke and Sugar. Former Chamber Executive Director Jennifer Moenter is helping Krendl acclimate to her new job.

In Lima, a walk will be held on Sept. 7 at Allen County Farm Park. Registration will begin at 1 p.m. with the walk starting at 2 p.m. Funds raised through Great Strides have helped spur dramatic progress in the lives of those who have cystic fibrosis. Fifty years ago, most children with CF did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, people with CF are living into their 30s, 40s and beyond. The 2013 goal of Great Strides is to raise nearly $42 million nationwide for CF research, education and care. “We still lose precious young lives to this disease every day. It’s more important than ever that we raise every dollar we can to fight CF,” said Cris Ramsey, volunteer chair for the CF Foundation’s Lima Great Strides walk. “We’re grateful for every volunteer, donor and corporate sponsor who supports Great Strides.” Local sponsors of Great Strides include St. Rita’s and Orthopaedic Institute of Ohio. To help fight CF, get involved in Great Strides by calling the Central Ohio Chapter at 614-846-2440 or by visiting greatstrides.cff.org.

Ohio sales tax to rise onequarter percent Sunday

COLUMBUS (AP) — Shoppers across Ohio will see a one-quarter percent sales tax increase beginning Sunday, the first increase in the tax in a decade. The rate will rise from 5.5 percent to 5.75 percent, or 25 cents for every $100 spent, on vehicles, electronics, clothing and other retail goods. Ohio lawmakers approved the increase as part of the state’s $62 billion, two-year state operating budget. The increase is part of a larger package of tax adjustments that will reduce overall business and individual taxes by an estimated $2.7 billion over the next three years. That includes a 10-percent cut to the personal income tax that will be phased in starting Sunday. Policy Matters Ohio, a liberal think tank in Cleveland, has estimated that the income-tax cuts would result in the top 1 percent of Ohio wage earners on average receiving $6,000 a year while the bottom fifth of wage earners would have to pay $12 a year. During budget debate this year, the group proposed that Ohio offer a sales-tax credit for lower income families as a targeted way to help offset some of the impact of tax changes on poorer Ohioans. Five states offer such credits. The Ohio Department of Taxation estimates that only 35 percent of an average Ohio family’s spending is subject to the sales tax. Groceries, housing, medicines, education and many other purchases are exempt from sales taxes. Even with the latest change — Ohio’s first increase since 2003 — the state’s rate is still lower than about half the U.S. states.

E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: Might another possible source for ethanol be discarded pastries from bakeries? For that matter, wouldn’t fermenting unsold bananas, oranges and apples from grocery store produce departments be able to provide an ample supply of fuel? — Curious in Warren, PA Food waste is indeed an untapped resource with great potential for generating energy. Some one third of all food produced around the world gets discarded uneaten, and environmentalists, energy analysts and entrepreneurs are beginning to take notice. Diverting even just a portion of this waste to so-called waste-to-energy (WTE) systems could free up large amounts of landfill space while powering our vehicles and heating our homes, and thus putting a significant dent in our collective carbon footprint. Perhaps that’s why WTE is one of the fastest growing segments of the world’s quickly diversifying energy sector. Currently there are some 800 industrialscale WTE plants in more than three dozen countries around the world, and likely thousands of smaller systems at individual sites. Most employ anaerobic digesters, which make use of microorganisms to break down and convert organic waste into a fuel such as biogas, biodiesel or ethanol. With some 70 percent of food waste around the world still going into landfills, there is a lot of potential feedstock to keep this environmentally friendly carbon neutral fuel source coming. “Waste-to-energy doesn’t involve drilling, fracking, or mining, and it doesn’t rely on scarce and politically-charged resources like oil,” reports RWL Water Group, an international company that installs water, wastewater and waste-to-energy systems. The waste from small slaughterhouses, breweries, dairy farms and coffee shops can power hundreds of typical homes each day if the infrastructure is in place to sort, collect and process the flow of organic material. Navigant Research, which produced the

2012 report “Waste-to-Energy Technology Markets, which analyzes the global market opportunity for WTE, expects waste-toenergy to grow from its current market size of $6.2 billion to $29.2 billion by 2022. “With many countries facing dramatic population growth, rapid urbanization, rising levels of affluence, and resource scarcity, waste-to-energy is re-establishing itself as an attractive technology option to promote low carbon growth in the crowded renewable energy landscape,” says Navigant’s Mackinnon Lawrence. “China is already in the midst of scaling up capacity, and growth there is expected to shift the center of the WTE universe away from Europe to Asia Pacific.” The question is whether governments and individuals will make the effort to support diversion of waste into yet another separate stream. In areas where such systems are working, individuals are incentivized to separate out their organic and food waste because it saves them money on their trash pick-up bills. And bakeries, restaurants, farms, grocers and other big producers of organic or food waste provide an endless source of feedstock for WTE systems as well. “We’re barely scratching the surface of this potential—dumping over 70 percent of the world’s food waste into landfills, rather than harnessing it for fuel and electricity,” reports RWL. “Over the next 25 years, global energy demand will grow by 50 percent, while global oil supply dwindles at a rapid pace. Waste-to-energy is an obvious solution to meet the world’s burgeoning energy demand.” EarthTalk® is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E - The Environmental Magazine (www.emagazine.com).

It’s THAT time of year again! And it isn’t Christmas!
Metcalfe’s Musings
By JIM METCALFE Sports Editor jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com It’s here! The high school football season is upon us. It seems as if the “off-season” — truthfully, is there really such a thing anymore outside a couple of weeks or a month but I digress — gets shorter and shorter. It’s kind of interesting that this summer, the weather hasn’t been the topic of conversation as in years past — that is, until the last couple of weeks. I for one have found this summer’s weather a refreshing respite from some of the hot ones we have had. Heck, I’ve only had to use my central air conditioning a total of three or four days in the middle of July. I digress again. With football starting officially Friday — I believe there will be a few games throughout the state today — the annual Delphos Herald Fall Sports Tab is also coming out today. Allow me a moment for my shameless hucksterism of promoting our product — mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. (It’s one of the few Latin phrases I know by heart!) Get extra copies for your family members, friends, even perfect strangers — heck, even imperfect ones! You’ll be glad you did. Back to the item up for discussion. The fall sports season will generally run the gamut of weather: from the searing heat of early August to the chillier temperatures of early December, with rain, snow,



MAC Football Capsules
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com PARKWAY PANTHERS ROCKFORD — Dan Cairns is beginning his third season as the Parkway head football coach after six years at Sidney and seven years at Brookside, plus seven years as a varsity assistant at Garfield Heights Trinity. He returns eight starters on offense (a variation of the spread) and six to the defense (variation of the 4-3), as well as four other lettermen, from a 0-10 team in 2012 (0-8 in the rugged Midwest Athletic Conference). Only seven lettermen are gone from last fall. Among the returnees are seniors in quarterback/defensive back Brant Barna (6-4, 195), two-way lineman Noah Gehron (6-1, 340), Adam Carr (wide receiver/defensive back; 5-5, 155), Austin Dennison (defensive back; 5-11, 170), Matt Heindel (6-1, 175; wide receiver/defensive back), Dakota Hucke (5-10, 175; running back/linebacker), Mike Miracle (6-0, 190; offensive line/linebacker), two-way lineman Jarod Moses (6-3, 220), Nick Hoehammer (5-8, 175, offensive line/ linebacker), Tyler Kittle (5-6, 150, running back/defensive back), Ryan On (5-8, 170; running back/defensive back) and Dakota Schaffner (6-5, 175; wide receiver/defensive line); and juniors two-way lineman Jared Puthoff (6-2, 230), Hayden Abromavich (5-11, 165/wide receiver/defensive back), Kris Gangwer (5-10, 165, running back/defensive back), Caleb Heindel (5-7, 155; wide receiver/defensive back), Sheldon Kittle (6-0, 185; two way lineman) and Ryan Lautzenheiser (5-9, 160; wideout/linebacker). As well, juniors Collin Leighner (5-8, 180; two way lineman), Devin Stover (6-1, 190; wideout/defensive line) and Adam Stutz (6-0, 190; two-way lineman) are ready to step into the open spots in the lineup. “This year’s team consists of a tough, hard-working group of ‘Blue Collar-type players. The kids are tight and love playing together,” Cairns said. “We lack depth; our numbers are low (43 in top four grades), so we can’t afford any injuries. “Keys to our success are to stay injury-free and establish a running game to take pressure off the quarterback. IN our league, there is a lot of tradition and that means Coldwater, Anna, St. John’s and Marion Local should be the class of the league.” Joining Cairns (also offensive coordinator) in the coaching ranks are Dave Hucke (defensive coordinator/WRs and DBs), Casey McConahay (QBs and DBs), Nick Riley (OL/DL) and Luke Clouse (RBs and LBs). Parkway hosts Crestview 7:30 p.m. Friday to open the season. ——— COLDWATER CAVALIERS COLDWATER — Coldwater’s gridiron crew won the program’s third State Football championship in 2012, claiming a Division V title with a 15-0 mark for fourth-year head coach Chip Otten (8-0 in the Midwest Athletic Conference). Otten enters 2013 with a 37-8 mark at Coldwater and a 65-40 mark overall (including at Middletown), He looks to add to the Cavaliers all-time mark of 508-26222 (1936-2012) but must replace 26 decorated seniors that were key cogs of a spread offense that scored 33.9 points per game and ceded 6.13 points, including fourth-year quarterback Austin Bruns, wideouts/defensive backs Caleb Siefring, Kyle Post, Jordan Chapin and Josh Huber, defensive stars Zach Dickman, Derek Collett, Alan Kunk, Cody Madaj and Vinny Droesch, amongst others. He will build this year’s crew around returnees in heir-apparent quarterback Brody Hoying (5-10, 180, junior), twoway player Mitchell Schoenherr (6-1, 200, senior; wide receiver/linebacker) and junior Derek Thobe (6-2, 170; wide receiver/defensive back). Look for seniors like Adam Klosterman (6-0, 165; wide receiver/defensive back), Grant Muhlenkamp (5-10, 170; running back/outside linebacker), Jason Bills (5-10, 175; running back/defensive back), Matt Kramer (6-1, 85; wide receiver/ outside linebacker/kicker), Drew Otten (5-7, 160; wideout/ safety), Brad Eckstein (5-10, 160; wideout/outside linebacker), Nick Staugler (5-10, 170; running back/linebacker), Jared Post (6-2, 190; offensive line/defensive end), Alex Klosterman (5-10, 200; two-way lineman), Austin Klosterman (5-10, 200; two-way lineman), Andrew Schwieterman (6-2, 215; two-way lineman) and Zach Huff (5-9, 160; wide receiver/outside linebacker). As well, juniors Greg Gilliland (6-4, 200; quarterback/ long snapper), Brandon Kunk (5-11, 170; wideout/outside linebacker), C.J. Seibert (5-7, 150; wideout/linebacker), Mitch Fullenkamp (5-10, 200; two-way lineman), Rob Cupp (5-10, 220; two-way lineman), Chase Bruggeman (6-1, 180; two-way lineman), Jake Schmidt (5-10, 180; offensive line/linebacker), Ted Fisher (6-0, 155; two-way lineman), Nick Clune (6-2, 195; two-way lineman), Ross Siefring (6-2, 185; two-way lineman), Blake Spangler (5-10, 225; two-way lineman) and Caleb Madaj (6-1, 275; two-way lineman) will be in the mix. Otten has 24 sophomores that could play roles as well. Assistant football coaches are Mark Bruns, Randy Wright, Jason Hemmelgarn, Jeff Kerr, Thad Forsthoefel, Dan Kanney and Aaron Alig. Coldwater opens up defense of its title 7:30 p.m. Friday versus Kenton. ——MARION LOCAL FLYERS MARIA STEIN — Marion Local football mentor Tim Goodwin added to the Flyer legacy with another state title, copping the Division VI crown in December. They Flyers finished 2012 with a 13-2 mark, including 6-2 in the Midwest Athletic Conference. Goodwin only has six seniors to replace from last season, so the 2013 Flyers are well-stocked to make a strong run at their third straight title. The biggest cog for this group is thirdyear quarterback Adam Bertke (6-6, 215, senior; safety), along with seniors Austin Albers(6-1, 180; wideout/linebacker), Troy Homan (6-2, 195; wideout/outside linebacker), Matt Bertke (5-10. 200; center/ nose), Jason Brunswick (6-2, 220; two-way lineman), Sam Poeppelman(6-3, 295; two-way lineman) and Nate Nagel(511, 170; wideout/cornerback); and juniors Jacy Goettemoeller (5-10, 175; running back/outside linebacker; coming off knee surgery from the state title game), Ryan Bruns (6-7, 205; wideout/defensive end), Evan Fleck(5-11, 170; wideout/safety), Dustin Rethman (5-11, 180; quarterback/cornerback), Jacob Kunkler(6-0, 180; tight end/linebacker), Joe Schwieterman (running back/linebacker) and Chris Lochtefeld (6-4, 200; offensive tackle/defensive end).

wind and a little bit of everything in between. I remember reading or hearing of an old tale about the Minnesota Vikings legendary coach, Bud Grant, telling his players that they were to wear the same apparel at practice whether it was 90 degrees out of minus 2 (and he did believe in practicing outdoors in cold weather). This was in the days of the old Metropolitan Stadium and the Purple People Eaters. I don’t know if it’s true or not — it’s hard to track it down after so many years but he came from the old school, so I give it some credence. It was his idea of discipline. Of course, you probably couldn’t do so today. What I did not know was that he coached in the Canadian Football League for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He also postponed a professional football career to play for the Minneapolis Lakers, who won titles both years, and then retired to play for the Philadelphia Eagles in the National Football League. To show you how much the NFL has changed, he was the second-leading receiver in the league with 56 catches in 1952. An amusing note here for all you Vikings’ fans, there is a competition on the Daily Norseman as to who is the greatest Viking of all time and he is in the final two with another legendary player, Hall-of-Famer Alan Page. He actually beat out Adrian Peterson to get to the finals! ——— The NFL is only a week away as I write this. There is always hope for fans, even us Dallas Cowboys’ fans! You just never know when things will actually go right — what are the odds that this ridiculousness will continue (unless one believes that Jerry Jones is purposely trying to short-circuit his beloved “product”.) Same thing with some other owners of apparently snake-bitten teams — you know who you are — but I don’t believe that, either. It just seems they couldn’t do a worse job if they actually tried. Again, hope springs eternal — until about week four!

Local Round Up
Information submitted Musketeer girls shut out Miller City in PCL soccer FORT JENNINGS — Ashley Gable scored a hat trick to pace Fort Jennings to a 3-0 Putnam County League girls soccer triumph at Fort Jennings Athletic Conference. Gable scored just 1:21 into the first half. Off a Jamie Saum assists, Gable tallied her second goal at 12:59 of the opening half. She finished her hat trick just two minutes hence. Fort Jennings outshot their guests 13-9, with Erin Osting nabbing eight saves for the victors and Amanda Simon 10 for the Wildcats (0-3-1, 0-1-0). The Lady Musketeers (2-1-0, 1-0-0) also grabbed the corner kicks 4-3. “Our first goal came when Ashley took it on her own to dribble through the defense and took the keeper on in a 1-vs.-1 and slid the ball past the keeper. The second goal came when Jamie took a corner kick and Ashley was waiting in the 6-yard box for a shot on-goal,” Musketeer coach Rodney Wagner described. “Then Ashley finished her scoring for the evening at the 10:59 mark when she took the ball past the Miller City defense again and took a shot when she was clear. Miller City was held scoreless but had some very good shots on-goal. “We controlled the first half of the game with ball control and good passing. Miller City never gave up and made numerous good runs at goal and either just missed or the ball was stopped by Erin, our junior keeper. The second half, we ended up playing a lot of defense with Miller City again either just missing the goal or Erin stopped a lot of good solid shots. Our next game is against league foe Continental on Tuesday at Continental. ———LadyCats, T-Birds battle to 5-5 draw KALIDA — Kalida and LIma Central Catholic battled to a 5-5 tie in girls soccer action Wednesday at Kalida Soccer Stadium.

Final BCS season should be a wild ride
By JOHN MARSHALL Associated Press The BCS farewell tour is about to begin. Love it or hate it — we’re guessing there are far more in the hating camp — the system for determining college football’s national champion will be mothballed after this season, replaced by the new, aptlynamed College Football Playoff. As farewells go, this one has a chance to be a memorable one, filled with intriguing story lines, great players and great teams, led by 2-time defending national champion Alabama. And, because this is the BCS, we can probably expect plenty of debate about what team should be where in the rankings. This final go-round starts on Thursday, so here’s a few things to look for: ——— TOP TEAMS Alabama. All those future pros, an unflappable quarterback, one of the game’s all-time great coaches — hard to pick against the Crimson Tide making it three straight titles. Ohio State. The Buckeyes went 12-0 in their first season under Urban Meyer but were tattooed out of the national title game because of NCAA sanctions. They’re still loaded with talented players. Oregon. Don’t expect any drop-off under Mark Helfrich. Chip Kelly left the cupboard plenty full before leaving for the Philadelphia Eagles. Stanford. The defending Rose Bowl champions are eyeing the big prize this season. Texas A&M. Johnny Manziel is good to go after the NCAA looked into whether he was paid for signing autographs. Georgia. The Bulldogs have to replace a few players on defense but their offense is loaded with playmakers, led by QB Aaron Murray. ——— TOP PLAYERS Manziel, QB, Texas A&M. The first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, Johnny Football may still have something to prove this year after a difficult offseason. Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina. The most disruptive force in college football could become the first full-time defensive player to win the Heisman.

NFL 2013: Broncos again class of AFC West
By ARNIE STAPLETON Associated Press


Shaun Phillips joined the Denver Broncos after a decade of jawing with them as a member of the San Diego Chargers. He wants to show both his new team and his old one that he still has plenty of sacks left in him. “I didn’t come here to be a cheerleader,” he declared. That’s exactly what All-Pro linebacker Von Miller will have to be for the next six weeks as he serves his suspension for violating the NFL’s drug-abuse policy. Miller kicked off the winter by guaranteeing the Broncos, 13-4 a year ago, would win the Super Bowl next February. Now, he’s sidelined until Oct. 20, when Peyton Manning By GEORGE HENRY makes his much-anticipated return to Indianapolis, where he Associated Press spent his first 14 NFL seasons before joining the Broncos last year.

announced on Tuesday night is the most ever for an Ohio State team. The most previously was six in 2010. Last year there were five. “It’s real unusual,” Meyer said a day later. “One thing I did the senior class. This year there were eight guys, most of them were within eight votes of each other. I said, ‘You know what, what a great experience to be named captain’.” Ohio State will have game captains and at the end of the year, Meyer will name official captains for the season. Asked if there was a danger of watering down the title of captain, Meyer shook his head. “(DL coach) Mike Vrabel said it best,” Meyer added. “He wasn’t elected a captain here his senior year. But he was a captain. When he said that, it made a lot of sense. Captain sometimes is by title only. That doesn’t mean you stop trying to lead.” Despite losses, Ohio State’s D might be better: There was a time not so long ago when Ohio State’s defense was one of the most feared, effective and efficient units in the country. For this season’s second-ranked Buckeyes to contend for a Big Ten, let alone a national title, Meyer knows his defenders have to harken back to the notso-distant past. “One thing about Ohio State defense, for a decade they were about as good a defense as there was in America,” Meyer said. “The last two years, it hasn’t been that way. So I’m anxious to get it back there to the Ohio State level.” The defense was just good enough to get it through an undefeated season in 2012. It provided the Big Ten defensive player of the year in lineman John Simon and always seemed to come up with a big play when needed. No one thought it was a bad defense but the numbers weren’t very good: 360 yards and 23 points a game, including surrendering 512 yards to California, 481 to Indiana and 403 to UAB. When they host Buffalo on Saturday, the Buckeyes are seeking improvement despite missing eight starters (including the suspended Roby) on that side of the ball. There’s a lot to accomplish.


until my senior year. I didn’t start at LSU until my junior year, so I just continued to work hard, but I didn’t get here alone. Great coaches at LSU and great teammates and a great offensive line that blocked for me.” Casper, who helped Notre Dame beat Alabama for the 1973 national title, became a pro hall inductee and Super Bowl champion as an Oakland Raiders tight end. He still enjoys his lifelong affiliations with his alma mater. “The good thing is I don’t have to go to purgatory for being on the national championship team,” Casper said, grinning. “Notre Dame takes care of my purgatory problem.” Other offensive players enshrined were Bartkowski (California quarterback who was the No. 1 overall NFL draft pick in 1975 by the Atlanta Falcons), split end Hal Bedsole (helped Southern Cal win the 1962 national title), Rice quarterback Tommy Kramer (set NCAA single-season passing record in 1976) and Colorado guard John Wooten (1958 All-American). Defensive players included Colorado State cornerback Greg Myers (1995 Thorpe Award winner), Texas Tech tackle Gabe Rivera (1982 All-American), Kansas State linebacker Mark Simoneau (1999 Big 12 defensive player of the year) and Air Force safety Scott Thomas. Organizers said that Johnson, Detmer, Ogden, Otis Armstrong and National Football Foundation chairman Archie Manning were unable to attend the event. Johnson coached Miami to the 1987 national title. Detmer, a former BYU quarterback, won the 1990 Heisman Trophy. Ogden won the 1995 Outland Trophy as UCLA’s left tackle. Armstrong left Purdue in 1972 as the Big Ten’s career leading rusher. Manning, a former Mississippi quarterback and father to NFL star QBs Peyton and Eli Manning, is recovering from back surgery. Fulmer (led Tennessee to 1998 national title) and Slocum (Texas A&M’s career-leading winner in nowdefunct Southwest Conference) were enshrined as coaches. Shell was one of seven inductees from FBS or lower division schools — Washington University linebacker Shelby Jordan, Westminster (Pa.) quarterback Joe Micchia, Ithaca College fullback Jeff Wittman and coaches Frank Cignetti of West Virginia and Indiana (Pa.), Boots Donnelly of Austin Peay and Middle Tennessee State and Jess Dow of Southern Connecticut State.

The Herald – 9

‘Standstill’ should focus on cousin not ‘family secret’

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
Keep a close watch over people with whom you conduct business in the coming months. Someone will play on your emotions in an attempt to make you look bad. If you’re cautious and independent, you’ll come out ahead. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Put time and effort into a major involvement, and you’ll encounter a crackerjack financial opportunity. Trust what you know, not what someone else tells you. Skill development will come in handy later. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Excess will lead to trouble. Assess your situation and you will realize you can make do with less. Aggressive behavior will damage a close relationship, so put the other party’s interests ahead of your own. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Seek adventure and expand your knowledge. The people and places you encounter will feed your imagination and contribute major improvements to your home and work lives. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -Avoid a scuffle with someone who is in a position of authority. It would be best for you to make personal changes at home, where you can remain in control and out of trouble. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Make your point heard and your suggestions will be considered. Keep the competition at a distance and your superiors well- informed. Protect your interests and you will excel. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Share your intentions with someone you trust. Now could be the time to suggest some changes to your loved ones. Opportunity will come from an unusual source, but you must be prepared to seize it. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Question the relevant motives before you jump into a joint endeavor. You and the other party probably do not have the same purpose in mind. Going solo may be the answer. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You’ll be drawn to someone for what you see as their unique qualities. Don’t fall for big talk when you have all the facts you need. Size up your situation to make changes and take control. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Plan a mini vacation or visit someone who brings you joy. Spending time relaxing and catching up will encourage you to make personal improvements. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Talk less and focus on making a difference. Don’t feel the need to pay for others or to try to buy love. Do something that will raise your profile and your confidence. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -You’ve got everything you need to reach your personal goals. Set your sights high and reach for the stars. You’ll learn what you need to make the right choices. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A change will do you good. It could involve travel or simply trying a new activity or mingling with a new group. You’ll make some long-lasting connections if you put yourself out there. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

Soldier sentenced to death for Fort Hood shooting
NOMAAN MERCHANT Associated Press FORT HOOD, Texas — A military jury on Wednesday sentenced Maj. Nidal Hasan to death for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, handing the Army psychiatrist the ultimate punishment after a trial in which he seemed to be courting martyrdom by making almost no effort to defend himself. The rare military death sentence came nearly four years after the attack that stunned even an Army hardened by more than a decade of constant war. Hasan walked into a medical building where soldiers were getting medical checkups, shouted “Allahu akbar” — Arabic for “God is great!” — and opened fire with a laser-sighted handgun. Thirteen people were killed. Hasan, who said he acted to protect Islamic insurgents abroad from American aggression, had no visible reaction when the sentence was announced, staring first at the jury forewoman and then at the judge. Some victims’ relatives were in the courtroom but none showed any reaction, which the judge had warned against. The American-born Muslim of Palestinian descent acted as his own attorney and never denied his actions at the huge Texas Army post. In opening statements, he told jurors that evidence would show he was the shooter and described himself as a soldier who had “switched sides.” The same jurors who convicted Hasan last week deliberated the sentence for about two hours. They needed to agree unanimously on the death penalty. The only alternative was life in prison without parole. Kathy Platoni, an Army reservist who still struggles with images of Capt. John Gaffaney bleeding to death at her feet, said she was not opposed to the punishment. Hasan wanted “to be a martyr and so many of the (victims’) families had spoken to the issue of not giving him what he wants because this is his own personal holy war,” said Platoni, who watched most of the trial from inside the courtroom. “But on the other hand — this is from the bottom of my heart — he doesn’t deserve to live,” she said. “I don’t know how long it takes for a death sentence to be carried out, but the world will be a better place without him.” Hasan could become the first American soldier executed in more than half a century. But because the military justice system requires a lengthy appeals process, years or even decades could pass before he is put to death. He was expected to be taken on the next available flight to the military prison at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. In his final plea for a death sentence, the lead prosecutor assured jurors that Hasan would “never be a martyr” despite his attempt to tie the attack to religion. “He is a criminal. He is a cold-blooded murderer,” Col. Mike Mulligan said. “This is not his gift to God. This is his debt to society. This is the cost of his murderous rampage.”

Horse Racing at the 2013 Van Wert County Fair
Horse Racing at the 2013 Van Wert County Fair. (Submitted photo) Information submitted All 156 previous Van Wert County Fairs have included horses on display or racing in some manner. The first fair in 1855 had an improvised race around a path with horses belonging to those in attendance. So what type of racing will there be at the 2013 Van Wert County Fair? At 1 p.m. on Monday the Fair’s Derby Day, the running races take place. Thoroughbred and Quarter horse breds comprise the running races. Today, Kids Day, the Harness Races take place at 7 p.m. with Standardbred horses. Tonight has Colt (male horse) harness racing. The Harness Races alternate between trot and pace Standardbred horses. This describes the gait of the horse or how a horse’s legs move. Harness Racing is a horse pulling a sulky (cart) with a driver. Running races are horses with a jockey. The Van Wert County Fair is unique in offering both types of races during the fair. Van Wert has a very unique place in the State of Ohio as it is the only county fair that holds running races, something very special at Van Wert County’s fair. This year, Derby Day on Monday has been designated “Ladies Hat Day” at the Fair. Ladies are encouraged to attend the running races and wear a “Kentucky Derby style” hat. The local group of ladies who wear red and purple hats, seen around Van Wert County at various events, will be promenading into the Grandstand before race time to show off their particular style of hat for the crowd. Who will have the best hat in the Grandstand? Try the running races and be part of the excitement! The Harness Races and Thoroughbred & Quarter Horse Races (Running Races on Derby Day) both have betting available. This is the only time betting is allowed during a county fair in Ohio.

Fast-food strikes MLK’s dream inspires a for cities new march, and a president set nationwide
SUZANNE GAMBOA Associated Press WASHINGTON — Standing on hallowed ground of the civil rights movement, President Barack Obama challenged new generations Wednesday to seize the cause of racial equality and honor the “glorious patriots” who marched a half century ago to the very steps from which Rev. Martin Luther King spoke during the March on Washington. In a moment rich with history and symbolism, tens of thousands of Americans of all backgrounds and colors thronged to the National Mall to join the nation’s first black president and civil rights pioneers in marking the 50th anniversary of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Obama urged each of them to become a modern-day marcher for economic justice and racial harmony. “The arc of the moral universe may bend toward justice but it doesn’t bend on its own,” Obama said, in an allusion to King’s own message. His speech was the culmination of daylong celebration of King’s legacy that began with marchers walking the streets of Washington behind a replica of the transit bus that Rosa Parks once rode when she refused to give up her seat to a white man. At precisely 3 p.m., members of the King family tolled a bell to echo King’s call 50 years earlier to “let freedom ring.” It was the same bell that once hung in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., where four black girls were killed when a bomb planted by a white supremacist exploded in 1963. Georgia Rep. John Lewis, a former freedom rider and the sole survivor of the main organizers of the 1963 march, recounted the civil rights struggles of his youth and exhorted American to “keep the faith and keep our eyes on the prize.” The throngs assembled in soggy weather at the Lincoln Memorial, where King, with soaring, rhythmic oratory and a steely countenance, had pleaded with Americans to come together to stomp out racism and create a land of opportunity for all. White and black, they came this time to recall history — and live it. “My parents did their fair share and I feel like we have to keep the fight alive,” said Frantz Walker, a honey salesman from Baltimore who is black. “This is hands-on history.” KAREN MATTHEWS Associated Press Organizers say thousands of fast-food workers are set to stage walkouts in dozens of cities around the country, part of a push to get chains such as McDonald’s, Taco Bell and Wendy’s to pay workers higher wages. It’s expected be the largest nationwide strike by fast-food workers, according to organizers. The biggest effort so far was over the summer when about 2,200 of the nation’s millions of fast-food workers staged a oneday strike in seven cities. Today’s planned walkouts follow a series of strikes that began last November in New York City, then spread to cities including Chicago, Detroit and Seattle. Workers say they want $15 an hour, which would be about $31,000 a year for fulltime employees. That’s more than double the federal minimum wage, which many fast food workers make, of $7.25 an hour, or $15,000 a year. The move comes amid calls from the White House, some members of Congress and economists to hike the federal minimum wage, which was last raised in 2009. But most proposals seek a far more modest increase than the ones workers are asking for, with President Barack Obama wanting to boost it to $9 an hour.

Obama: Syrian gov’t carried out chemical attack
KIMBERLY DOZIER Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Wednesday declared unequivocally that the United States has “concluded” that the Syrian government carried out a deadly chemical weapons attack on civilians. But new hurdles emerged that appeared to slow the formation of an international coalition that could use military force to punish Syria. Obama did not present any direct evidence to back up his assertion that the Syrian government bears responsibility for the attack. At the same time, U.S. officials were searching for additional intelligence to bolster the case for a strike against Assad’s military infrastructure. Questions remained about whether the attack could be linked to Assad or high officials and whether a rogue element of the Syrian military could have used the weapons on its own authority. While Obama said he is still evaluating possible military retaliation, he vowed that any American response would send a “strong signal” to Syrian President Bashar Assad. “We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out,” Obama said during an interview with “NewsHour” on PBS. “And if that’s so, then there need to be international consequences.” Earlier Wednesday, the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council failed to reach an agreement on a draft resolution from the British seeking authorization for the use of force. Russia, as expected, objected to international intervention. Obama administration officials said they would take action against the Syrian government even without the backing of allies or the United Nations because diplomatic paralysis must not prevent a response to the alleged chemical weapons attack outside the Syrian capital last week. Despite the administration’s assertions that it would press forward without the U.N., momentum for international military action appeared to slow. British Prime Minister David Cameron promised British lawmakers he would not go to war until a U.N. chemical weapons team on the ground in Syria has a chance to report its findings, pushing the U.K.’s involvement in any potential strike until next week at the earliest. Cameron called an emergency meeting of Parliament today to vote on whether to endorse international action against Syria. Even so, British Foreign Secretary William Hague suggested that U.S. military action need not be constrained by Britain. “The United States are able to make their own decisions,” he told reporters late Wednesday, just after speaking with Secretary of State John Kerry. More intelligence was being sought by

U.S. officials. While a lower-level Syrian military commanders’ communications discussing a chemical attack had been intercepted, they don’t specifically link the attack to an official senior enough to tie the killings to Assad himself, according to one U.S. intelligence official and two other U.S. officials. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the intelligence publicly. The White House ideally wants intelligence that links the attack directly to Assad or someone in his inner circle, to rule out the possibility that a rogue element of the military acting without Assad’s authorization. That quest for added intelligence has delayed the release of the report by the Office of the Director for National Intelligence laying out evidence against Assad. The report was promised earlier this week by administration officials. The CIA and the Pentagon have been working to gather more human intelligence tying Assad to the attack, relying on the intelligence services of Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Israel, the officials said. The administration was planning a teleconference briefing today on Syria for leaders of the House and Senate and national security committees in both parties, U.S. officials and congressional aides said. Both the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency have their own human sources — the rebel commanders and others who cross the border to brief CIA and defense intelligence officers at training camps in Jordan and Turkey. But their operation is much smaller than some of the other intelligence services, and it takes longer for their contacts to make their way overland. The CIA, the Pentagon, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence all declined to comment on the intelligence picture, and the White House did not respond to requests for comment. Obama said he was not seeking a lengthy, open-ended conflict in Syria, indicating that any U.S. response would be limited in scope. But he argued that Syria’s use of chemical weapons not only violated international norms, but threatened “America’s core self-interest.” “We do have to make sure that when countries break international norms on weapons like chemical weapons that could threaten us, that they are held accountable,” he said. Laying out a legal justification for a U.S. response, Obama said Syria was violating the Geneva Protocols, an agreement signed in 1925 in the wake of World War I to ban the use of chemical gases. The White House has also cited the Chemical Weapons Convention, a 1992 agreement that builds on the Geneva Protocols by prohibiting the development and stockpiling of chemical weapons.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Scientists have found a compelling clue in the quest to learn what causes age-related memory problems, and to one day be able to tell if those misplaced car keys are just a senior moment or an early warning of something worse. Wednesday’s report offers evidence that age-related memory loss really is a distinct condition from pre-Alzheimer’s — and offers a hint that what we now consider the normal forgetfulness of old age might eventually be treatable. Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center examined brains, young and old ones, donated from people who died without signs of neurologic disease. They discovered that a certain gene in a specific part of the hippocampus, the brain’s memory center, quits working properly in older people. It produces less of a key protein. That section of the brain, called the dentate gyrus, has long been suspected of being especially vulnerable to aging. Importantly, it’s a different neural neighborhood than where Alzheimer’s begins to form. But it’s circumstantial evidence that having less of that protein, named RbAp48, affects memory loss in older adults. So the researchers took a closer look at mice, which become forgetful as they age in much the same way that people do.
