Altman been a Blue Jay since the fourth grade when he discovered basketball at Delphos St. John’s. His first exposure to Blue Jay basketball came from his mother, Valeria, who told him tales of St. John’s first trip to the state tournament in her senior year of 1924. His passion for the game and the Blue Jays grew while watching the ‘Jays play to large, boisterous crowds in the old gym under coaches Don Patthoff, Dick Bechtel and

Kill Frank Sowecke. He especially enjoyed watching his favorite Blue Jay Dave Schmelzer from the 1949 state champion Blue Jays. A lifetime of jump shots later, he still loves the game but he admits he gets way too nervous to attend St. John’s annual battle with archrival Lima Central Catholic. Altman’s basketball career started in junior high at St. John’s but really took off his freshman year in a game at

Voll Lima St. John’s. A freshman who played JV and dressed varsity, he remembers not playing at all in that night’s JV game and wondering what he did to get into the coach’s doghouse. In the locker room before the varsity game as Coach Bob Arnzen read off the starting lineup for the varsity game, he was surprised to hear his name called. A nervous freshman, he recalls that game didn’t go very well for him but four

Kemper years and 93 games later he ended his St. John’s career with 1,193 points and Second Team All-Ohio recognition. As a senior he captained the 1954 team to the Class AA state runner-up, garnering First Team State Tournament honors. He received a scholarship to Bowling Green State University and played two years for the Falcons, lettering in 1956. See FAME, page 9

DELPHOS — It’s that time of year again when people find themselves in a rush and not wanting to trudge around their vehicles in the bitter cold scraping ice and snow from their windows, hoods, roofs and trunks before taking off for their destination. Those drivers — peephole drivers — who clear just enough snow and ice from the windshield to see out — are endangering themselves and all other pedestrians and drivers in their path. Delphos Police Chief Kyle Fittro was adamant about drivers clearing snow and ice off of vehicle windows fully before driving anywhere. “Windows need to be free and clear of obstruction,” Fittro directed. Manager of driving training programs for American Automobile Association (AAA) Dr. Bill Van Tassel says peephole driving is a very common roadway problem and failure to completely clear all the windows can create significant blind spots. “You may be a great decision-maker or great at maneuvering your vehicle but if you can’t see, you’ve lost right there,” Van Tassel explained. “People are in a rush and they underestimate the dangers of not fully clearing their windows.” Another facet to the behavior is the danger to pedestrians and other drivers when chunks of snow and ice are dislodged from the vehicles that are not sufficiently cleaned off. A chunk of ice flying off a car can prove deadly if it would hit a pedestrian walking down a sidewalk, standing at a corner or getting into or out of a vehicle. That same chunk of ice flying backwards and finding its mark on a vehicle can crack the windshield on impact and/or blind a driver causing a collision leading to deaths, injuries and property damages.

Associated Press Today is Monday, Nov. 25, the 329th day of 2013. There are 36 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 25, 1963, the body of President John F. Kennedy was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery; his widow, first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, lighted an “eternal flame” at the gravesite. On this date: In 1783, the British evacuated New York, their last military position in the United States during the Revolutionary War. In 1908, the first issue of The Christian Science Monitor was published. In 1940, the cartoon character Woody Woodpecker made his debut in the animated short “Knock Knock.” In 1952, the play “The Mousetrap,” a murder mystery by Agatha Christie, first opened in London’s West End; it is the longest continuously running show in history. In 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower suffered a slight stroke. In 1973, Greek President George Papadopoulos was ousted in a bloodless military coup. In 1980, Sugar Ray Leonard regained the World Boxing Council welterweight championship when Roberto Duran abruptly quit in the eighth round at the Louisiana Superdome. In 1986, the Iran-Contra affair erupted as President Ronald Reagan and Attorney General Edwin Meese revealed that profits from secret arms sales to Iran had been diverted to Nicaraguan rebels. In 1999, five-year-old Elian Gonzalez was rescued by a pair of sport fishermen off the coast of Florida, setting off an international custody battle. In 2001, as the war in Afghanistan entered its eighth week, CIA officer Johnny “Mike” Spann was killed during a prison uprising in Mazar-e-Sharif, becoming America’s first combat casualty of the conflict. In 2002, President George W. Bush signed legislation creating the Department of Homeland Security and appointed Tom Ridge to be its head. Ten years ago: The Senate gave final congressional approval to historic Medicare legislation combining a new prescription drug benefit with measures to control costs before the baby boom generation reaches retirement age. Yemen arrested Mohammed Hamdi al-Ahdal, a top al-Qaida member suspected of masterminding the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole and the 2002 bombing of a French oil tanker off Yemen’s coast. (Al-Ahdal was later sentenced to three years for the French tanker attack, but was not charged in the Cole case.)

For The Record

One Year Ago The ninth annual St. John’s Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony was held Sunday in the All Saints Building at St. John’s High School. This year’s honorees are: Professional Achievement – Paul Baumgarte, class of 1939; Arts/Athletic Achievement – Scott Schulte, class of 1990; Service to St. John’s – Johnny Giesken, class of 1943; and Service to Manhind – Bishop Albert Ottenweller. 25 Years Ago – 1988 Kelly Meyer was recently chosen as a fashion model by the Fashion Merchandising Association. Models will represent the association in numerous fashion shows throughout the next four years. She is a freshman at Bowling Green State University majoring in fashion merchandising. She is the daughter of Don and Kay Meyer of Fort Jennings. Some teams might like to ease into their schedule with some easy early games. St. John’s won’t have that luxury. Their first five games should give them a pretty good idea of what kind of season they will have. St. John’s returns “almost four” starters from last year’s team. Returning starters are Curt Mager, Duane Grothause, Doug Etgen and Doug Eggeman. American Legion Post 715, Fort Jennings has named the winners in its Americanism and government contest conducted in Fort Jennings and Ottoville high schools. Fort Jennings winners were Lezlie Ricker, Wesley Klir, Jackie Berelsman, Brent Helmke, Stephanie Vetter and Aaron Ricker. Winners at Ottoville were Kelly Kaufman, Mark Miller, Kevin Horstman and Marie Ruen. 50 Years Ago – 1963 Mrs. Virgil Buchanan was hostess to the members of the Friendly Circle Club Thursday afternoon in her home on West Fourth Street. A short business meeting was conducted at which time plans were made for the group’s Christmas dinner party and gift exchange to be held Dec. 19 at NuMaude’s Restaurant. Contests were held with prizes going to Grace Keel and Nina Dye. Eleven members and two guests, Margaret Cauble and Mrs. Robert Minning, were present when the Leatherwood Community Garden Club met recently in the home of Mrs. John Metzger. Mrs. Chester Pierce presented the topic and displayed library books on gardening and flowers. Plans were made for members to attend the Elida Garden Club floral arrangement event on Dec. 5. Members of the Ottoville Catholic Ladies of Columbia met this week in the parish hall. The main business was the election of new officers with the following results: President,Veronica Burgei; Vice President Ruth Miller; Financial Secretary Irene Miller; Recording Secretary Mary Louise Schimmoeller; Treasurer Alma Kaufman; Monitor, Rosa Deitering; Inner Guard Carol Byrne; and Trustee Evelyn Wannemacher. 75 Years Ago – 1938 The ladies of the Delphos Methodist Church will conduct their annual Christmas bazaar on Dec. 1 at the church. There will be a cafeteria lunch at noon and a dinner will be served from 5-8 p.m. The ladies will also have a number of booths, including fancy work, candy, country store, magazine, etc. Close scoring featured Van Wert County basketball games Tuesday night and Wednesday. Ohio City won from Mendon by a score of 16 to 14. Willshire fought down a rally to win over Wren by a 35 to 33 score. Middle Point defeated Ridge 38 to 28. Hoaglin-Jackson defeated Oakwood by a score of 45 to 26. The annual union Thanksgiving service held at the United Brethren Church Wednesday evening was largely attended. The pastor, the Rev. Wesley Mullenhour, led in prayer. The Rev. J. Clement Berry, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, read the scripture and the sermon was delivered by the Rev. R. M. Gow, pastor of the Christian Church. Special music was provided by Mr. and Mrs. Guy Tilton, Mrs. Harry Woodcock and Paul Harter with Mrs. Charles Horine as accompanist.

grand jury in Minnesota also has been conducting an investigation. “They have to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Thompson, 58, of Howell, Mich., who was hospitalized for 38 days with meningitis after receiving a steroid injection for back pain. “They were totally irresponsible.” Since the contaminated steroids were first discovered, 751 people in 20 states have developed fungal meningitis or other infections, including 64 who died. Michigan, Tennessee and Indiana were the hardest-hit states. Federal prosecutors have declined to comment on the investigation, but the FBI recently asked anyone who received one of the tainted injections to fill out a questionnaire detailing their illnesses and saying whether they believe another medication distributed by NECC caused harm to them or their family. Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said in a statement on Sunday that he and Boston U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz will hold a news conference today to discuss a development in the independent state and federal investigations into NECC.

Unemployment rate in Ohio continues to creep upward
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor news@delphosherald.com VAN WERT — The Ohio unemployment rate has spent the fall creeping slowly upward, according to figures released Friday by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. The data for September was delayed and released along with the October report, giving officials a two-month look at the employment and unemployment situations in Ohio. The reason given for the delay was the backlog of paperwork following the federal government shutdown. Specifically the state rate, which was 7.3 percent in August, moved to 7.4 percent in September, then to 7.5 percent in October. To go with that, the number of unemployed in the state has moved from 419,000 in August to 425,000 in September to 427,000 in October. The number of unemployed workers in the state has increased by 31,000 since October 2012. The number of working Ohioans has also crept upward. In August 5,200,600 workers were on the job. In the October figures, that number was up to 5,204,800. So since August the state has added 4,200 more jobs but 8,000 more persons unemployed. County unemployment rate for September and October is due to be released by the state on Tuesday. In the August report, Van Wert County had a 6.7 percent unemployment rate, down from 7.1 percent in July. The county total labor force was 13,700, with 12,800 employed and 900 unemployed. Across the state line in Indiana, the jobless rate has fallen almost a full percentage point over the last three months and is now equal to the Ohio rate at 7.5 percent. The Hoosier State added 6,600 jobs in October, 3,600 of those in manufacturing. Indiana has also seen the number of unemployed decrease by more than 27,00 in the past three months. Unemployment rates in Adams and Allen counties in Indiana fell


Van Wert SWCD hosts 64th annual meeting, holds election
BY LINDSAY MCCOY DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com VAN WERT - The Van Wert Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) held its 64th annual meeting Thursday evening at Vantage Career Center. An election was held to elect two supervising positions on the SWCD Board of Supervisors, and Robert Gehres and Craig Pohlman were elected to serve three-year terms as a part of the fivemember board. “We had a very enjoyable program this year,” said SWCD Office Manager Julie Buggle. “The farming community as well as two Van Wert County Commissioners had the opportunity to come together and socialize as well as learn about the different programs SWCD has to offer.” Both Gehres and Pohlman’s positions will commence Jan. 1, 2014. The evening’s dinner was provided by Collin’s Fine Food. Craig Herbie provided the conservation report of programs available through SWCD. Danielle Matthews was recognized and received the Scholarship Aaward, and Dave Jones received a plaque for his five-year service on the Board of Supervisors. Along with the meal, election and awards, a variety of door prizes were won by those in attendance. Prizes were provided by First Bank of Berne, Ag Credit, Farm Credit, Williamson Insurance, Merkle Insurance and Baughman Tile.

sharply in October. Adams County’s rate fell from 6.4 to 6.0 percent while Allen County saw a drop from 7.2 to 6.7 percent. During October, the state added 900 manufacturing jobs, 1,300 in construction; 3,500 in trade, transportation and utilities; 3,000 in leasure and hospitality; and 1,000 in financial services. The number of government positions fell by 6,300 with most of those (4,300) in local government. Another 1,200 jobs were also lost in professional and business services during the month. Over the last 12 months, Ohio has added 6,000 manufacturing jobs, although 1,100 construction jobs were lost. As of last month, an estimated 660,900 people are employed in manufacturing jobs. Job gains were also seen in leisure and hospitality (13,100); educational and health services (12,100); and trade, transportation and utilities (11,000). The U.S. unemployment rate for October was 7.3 percent, up from 7.2 percent in September, but down from 7.9 percent in October 2012.

2 Ohio students among 32 US Rhodes Scholars
CINCINNATI (AP) — When Ohio’s two new Rhodes scholars heard their names called during a live announcement of winners, they looked at each other in disbelief. One of them thought she was hallucinating, the other had to ask: “They called my name, right?” Courtney Wittekind, of Mason in southwestern Ohio, and Adam Mastroianni, of Monroeville in northern Ohio, are among 32 college students nationwide to win the prestigious scholarships, announced Sunday, and will enter England’s Oxford University next October. “We actually had the same reaction, which was, ‘Is this actually happening,’” Wittekind said in an interview on Sunday from her family’s home in Mason. She, Mastroianni and a handful of other hopefuls from Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky learned Saturday whether they’d won or lost after final interviews were held in Indianapolis — a process that Wittekind described as slightly awkward for those who didn’t win and surreal for the ones who did. “The first thing that went through my head was, ‘Did I make that up?’ Maybe I’m hallucinating or dreaming,’” she said. Then Mastroianni turned to her to doublecheck that he had just heard his name, she said. Wittekind, 23, graduated last year with an anthropology degree from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. She has been working full-time as an intern at the Brookings Institution in Washington on a project involving natural disasters, conflict and the conflictinduced displacement of people. Wittekind wants to continue studying anthropology in Oxford, focusing on conflict


Boy shot by mom’s ex-boyfriend dies
COLUMBUS (AP) — A 9-year-old central Ohio boy, who police say was the first targeted in a string of shootings by his mother’s ex-boyfriend, has died from his injuries, a hospital official said Sunday. Jaiden Dixon succumbed to his injuries at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, according to a nursing supervisor who declined to provide further details. The boy had suffered severe brain injuries and his organs were being donated, according to Mark Granger, the lawyer that Jaiden’s mother works for as a paralegal and who spoke on behalf of the family Saturday. Jaiden was the first victim in a series of violent encounters Friday that ended in the death of his mother’s ex, 47-year-old Danny Thornton. Thornton shot Jaiden around 7:30 a.m. Friday when the boy answered the door at a residence in Grove City, a suburb on the city’s southwest side, according to Grove City police Capt. Jeffrey Pearson. About a half-hour later, police said Thornton shot an exgirlfriend, 42-year-old Vicki Vertin, at a dental office in Groveport, a suburb on the city’s southeast side. Police said Thornton entered the office and said, “Haven’t seen you in a while” before shooting Vertin, a dental employee. Thornton was tracked to a retail parking lot about two

resolution, political transition and how that plays into displacement in Myanmar. Wittekind said she was inspired to get into the field after she lived in Thailand in 2009 with a Burmese refugee family who would help incoming refugees navigate their new lives. She said her ultimate goal is to give a voice to those refugees. “There are a lot of people in these communities who are dispossessed or povertystricken, but people in these communities have their own solutions and their own ideas about how their suffering can be best relieved, and I think quite often their voices don’t get heard,” she said. Wittekind graduated from Mason High School. Her mother is a school nurse and her father owns his own business selling large cutting tools. Mastroianni, 22, is a senior studying social psychology at Princeton University in New Jersey. Mastroianni and Wittekind were selected from 857 applicants endorsed by 327 colleges and universities. Rhodes scholarships provide all expenses for two or three years of study at Oxford. The value of the scholarships averages about $50,000 a year. Rhodes Scholarships were created in 1902 by the will of British philanthropist Cecil Rhodes. Winners are selected on the basis of high academic achievement, personal integrity, and leadership potential, among other attributes. The American students will join an international group of scholars selected from 14 other jurisdictions around the world. Approximately 80 scholars are selected annually.

Blue Jays garner Division VII State semifinal berth
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com LIMA — Eighth-seeded St. John’s scored just 1:44 into the contest on a cold Saturday night at Lima Stadium and never looked back, shutting out sixth-seeded Arlington 33-0 in a Region 24 final. The Blue Jays (9-4) advance to play old foe Marion Local 7 p.m. Saturday in a Division VII State semifinal at Wapakoneta’s Harmon Field. The Jays amassed 350 yards rushing on 39 carries, led by senior tailback Tyler Jettinghoff’s 26 rushes for 167 yards and senior fullback Luke MacLennan’s six for 102. Once more, the offensive line of seniors Spencer Ginter, Ryan Shumaker and Kellen Schomaeker and juniors Wes Buettner and Austin Schulte made things much easier for the backs as they averaged 9.0 yards per carry. The defense also held Red Devil (9-4) 2,000-yard rushing star Austin Rettig to 63 yards on 18 totes and a total of 99 yards rushing overall. “We dominated on both sides of the ball. Offensively, we are getting better up front as we go and that gives our backs a chance to square their shoulders to the line of scrimmage,” head coach Todd Schulte explained. “Defensively, our game plan was not to let Rettig beat us. We did not give him a lot of space to get going.” Jettinghoff gave all the credit to the horses up front. “They are playing hard all the time and I have to do the same. They make things so much easier for us in the backfield,” Jettinghoff concurred. “It’s also a good thing to play both ways; I find that my head stays in the game.” The Jays took the opening kickoff — with



St. John’s senior fullback Luke MacLennan follows the blocks of Wes Buettner (58) and Ryan Shumaker against Arlington Saturday night. (Delphos Herald/Larry Heiing) the wind at their backs — and started from the 20. Four plays later at the 37, junior quarterback Nick Martz (5 totes, 75 yards) faked MacLennan over left guard, kept it around the end, got great blocking on the perimeter and was gone to the end zone at 10:16 of the first period to get the Jays going. Senior Ben Wrasman hit the crossbar on the extra point for a 6-0 edge. The Jays — — forced a 3-and-out and put the offense in great field position at the 42. They reached the Arlington 13 in six plays but on play seven, they fumbled and Hunter Bernhardt recovered. The Jays again forced a 3-and-out and this time, they finished the job on a 4-play, 37-yard drive. On 4th-and-3 at the 30, Martz dropped, scrambled to his right and found MacLennan (2 grabs, 29 yards) along the right sideline at the 20. He turned and headed to the end zone. Wrasman added the kick for a 13-0 edge with 20 ticks on the clock in the first. The Red Devils then commenced with their best drive, traveling from the 20 to the Jays’ 12 in 10 plays. However, the next two snaps lost five yards and lefty-kicking Xavier Martinez’s 34-yard field goal try (with the

wind) was wide left with 6:31 showing in the half. The Jays took possession a the 20 and used nine straight running plays — seven by Jettinghoff for 56 yards — to punch in their third score. At the Arlington 5, he took a toss off left tackle, veered outside and found the pylon for the tally. Wrasman made it 20-0 with 2:25 left in the half. That effectively ended the half. The Devils began the second half at the 30 and moved to the Blue Jays’ 37 in five plays. However, on 4th-and-5, Andrew Hunter (12 rushes, 31 yards; 6-of-14 passing, 119 yards) was stopped two yards short of a first down. St. John’s garnered two first downs before punting away in Arlington space. The Red Devils marched from the 23 to the Jays’ 40 in five plays but on 4th-and-5, Hunter was incomplete to turn the ball over on downs. The Jays then went the distance in four plays: a 30-yard Jettinghoff scamper, a 20-yard bull run by MacLennan and a 1-yard Jettinghoff run to the 9. From there, Martz threw a swing pass to Jettinghoff in the right flat and he did the rest. Wrasman’s kick was no good, leaving a 26-0 lead with six seconds off the fourth-period clock. On the next play from scrimmage at the Arlington 35, the front four forced Hunter to scramble to his left and his pass was picked off by Jettinghoff at the Red Devil 49. All it took was a trap handoff to MacLennan over left guard; he took one step inside and left the defense in his wake. Wrasman tacked on the final tally with 11:34 remaining. Arlington’s final serious effort at scoring started with 5:30 to go from the 31 and ended up at the Jays’ 13 in nine plays, where Jordan Freed was stopped a yard short on 3rd-and-3 to end the game.

Van Wert got two 3-pointers from Cheyenne Handy and one from Moonshower. The Knights countered with a trey from Emily Bauer but the hot Cougar shooting forced Crestview to use a timeout with 3:21 left in the third quarter with the score 33-27. Crestview got four points from Bauer and a three from Terra Crowle to end the third quarter but Van Wert still had a 39-34 lead, The Knights got a layup from Bauer and a corner three from Crowle to start the fourth period and tie the game at 39-39. Dowdy for Van Wert and Crowle for Crestview exchanged triples to bring the score to 42-42. The Cougars got four straight points from Morrow but a Crowle three meant that Van Wert’s lead was only one, 46-45. Motycka knocked down two free throws to give the Knights a 47-46 lead but five straight points by Handy — including a triple — gave the Cougars a 51-47 lead. In the final seconds of the game, the Knights could only get a layup from Riggenbach to cut the deficit to 51-49 but that was the final score. “When you don’t play defense, you aren’t going to win. We scored 49 points and that should be enough to win a game and when you are playing man-to-man defense and you keep giving up a lot of uncontested threes, you don’t deserve to win,” Crestview

The Knights had three scorers in double figures: Crowle with a team-high 12 points, Bauer 11 and Riggenbach 10. “A big win — and we can’t remember the last time we won this tournament — so our goal coming into this year was to win this tournament,” Van Wert coach Lance Moonshower said. “Against a team like Crestview, getting an early-season win like this will really boost our confidence.

Lady Wildcats shoot down young Archer squad
By TREY SMITH DHI Correspondent new@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — The Lady ‘Cats from Delphos Jefferson gained their first win of this 2013-14 girls basketball season with a 48-21 win over the Antwerp Archers Saturday night at Jefferson High School. Jefferson (1-1) did most of its damage from inside the arc and from the foul line: connecting on 14-of-39 shots (2-of-14 from three) for 35.9 percent from the floor and 18-of-29 from the line for 62.1 percent. Junior Brooke Culp lead the Lady ‘Cats with 15 points and knocked in a perfect 8-of-8 from the charity strike. Jefferson’s size proved a huge advantage for them as they outrebounded the Archers. Shelby Koenig guarded the rim, collecting three blocked shots. For Jefferson coach Dave Hoffman, it was a step in the right direction. “Our team came out tonight unintimidated and ready to play,” Hoffman said. “We executed much better and got major contributions from many different girls. Our size down low also proved a great advantage for us in the paint both offensively and defensively.” The young Archers had a difficult time finding the basket against the size of the Lady ‘Cats. They connected on a mere five field goals (0 treys). Payton Short lead the scoring with eight points and Kaiya Jemison added seven. Brooke Culp came out of the gates hot for the ‘Cats as she scored their first nine points of the game and nine of their 11 total in the first quarter. She connected on Lady ‘Cats’ lead was 27-11 at halftime. The trend of the first half continued into the third stanza as Delphos extended its lead to 40-15. Senior post Jasmine McDougall joined in the action with four points in the quarter and a plethora of steals. Again, Antwerp was unable to get anything going from the field and scored only from the freethrow line. Jefferson added to its lead in the fourth as their defense, yet again, held the Archers to only three field goals. Pimpas, Culp, Goergens and Heather Pohlman put the finishing touches on their lead. With little time left, the Lady ‘Cats entered their reserves to finish out the game. Neither side scored the rest of the way and the final score became 48-21.

Roethlisberger leads Steelers past Browns 27-11
By TOM WITHERS Associated Press CLEVELAND — Their horrendous start has long been forgotten, erased with an equally unexpected turnaround. The Steelers are in contention, right back where they belong. The playoffs are possible. Ben Roethlisberger threw touchdown passes to Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders and beat Cleveland for the 16th time as Pittsburgh, which opened the season with four straight losses, pushed deeper into the postseason picture with a 27-11 win over the Browns on Sunday. The Steelers (5-6) have climbed back with a onegame-at-a-time philosophy that they’re not about to abandon. “I’m not looking around,” Roethlisberger said, quickly dismissing any postseason speculation. “It’s all about focus. This game is over now. That’s all we can control.” Roethlisberger connected on a 41-yard TD pass to Brown in the first half and hit Sanders on a 4-yarder in the third quarter for the Steelers, who only have a few days to get ready for a Thanksgiving game at Baltimore — a matchup that didn’t look as if it would be very meaningful a few weeks back. Roethlisberger finished 22-of-34 for 217 yards and improved to 16-1 against the Browns (4-7), who have lost five out of six and seen a promising season turn into yet another miserable one. An Ohio native, Roethlisberger relishes beating a team from his home state. “It’s homecoming, you know, a home game,” he added. “So it does feel good.” The Browns (4-7) lost starting quarterback Jason Campbell to a concussion in the third quarter when he was sacked by cornerback William Gay. Campbell was struck in the helmet by Gay and his head snapped back and banged the turf. He spent several moments flat on his back in the middle of the field, a symbolic moment for the Browns, who were smashed again by their AFC North rival. In his first season, Browns coach Rob Chudzinski has cycled through three starting quarterback because of injuries. He had to play Brandon Weeden again and may have to start the beleaguered second-year QB next week against Jacksonville. Weeden got booed when he came off the bench and things got tougher for him in the fourth, when Gay intercepted his pass and returned it 21 yards for a TD, giving the Steelers a 27-3 lead. “You’ve just got to laugh at it,” Weeden said of the booing. One bright spot for Cleveland was wide receiver Josh Gordon. He tied a team record with 14 receptions and set

a club mark with 237 yards. After losing to Minnesota on Sept. 29, the Steelers looked old, slow and a shell of themselves. Things didn’t look any better when they gave up 55 points and 610 yards to New England earlier this month. But with three straight wins, they’re where they usually are when the schedule moves toward December. “When we were 0-4, we knew we couldn’t get four straight wins in one week,” said rookie running back Le’Veon Bell, who gained 80 yards. “We had to chip away at it and take it one game at a time. Now we’re 5-6, so we’re just going to keep grinding and grinding.” The Steelers have turned one of the NFL’s best rivalries into a laughable, one-sided affair, going 25-5 against the Browns since 1999. Campbell’s scary injury has Cleveland’s season on a familiar slide. He was leveled on the blind-side blitz by Gay, who came in untouched and dislodged the ball. As the QB was sprawled on the ground near midfield, Pittsburgh’s Will Allen scooped the ball and returned it to the Cleveland 4. As Campbell was checked by the Browns’ training staff, Roethlisberger came over and gave him a gentle tap on the helmet. “That’s respect,” Roethlisberger added. “I respect him as a quarterback and as a player and a man so I just wanted to check on him.”

Everything else pales as Michigan game approaches
By RUSTY MILLER Associated Press COLUMBUS — Ohio State defensive lineman Noah Spence is from Harrisburg, Pa. He wasn’t steeped in the enmity that grips fans of the Buckeyes and Wolverines about this time every year. But now in his second season in the heart of Ohio, he has a good grasp of it now. “It’s a huge rivalry even if you’re a guy from out of state like me,” he said. Then he added, “It’s everything.” Ohio State and Michigan clash for the 110th time on Saturday, at Michigan Stadium. It’s already been a long, grueling season. But, as it should be, the best and biggest game has been saved for last. Ohio State (11-0, 7-0), which moved up to No. 3 in all major rankings on Sunday, won its school-record 23rd straight game and also earned a spot in the Big Ten championship game with a 42-14 win over Indiana in snow-globe conditions at Ohio Stadium on Saturday. Almost immediately, the Buckeyes’ thoughts turned to the opponent that — like Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter books — no one in Ohio refers to by name. Instead, they follow the lead of late coach/curmudgeon Woody Hayes and call it “That School (or Team) Up North.” From a distance, it might look like a trap game: The Buckeyes have little to play for beyond holding on to what they’ve already got — an unbeaten season and conference and national title aspirations. On top of that, the Wolverines (7-4, 3-4) have lost four of their last six games and have had major problems running the ball and scoring points. But in a rivalry the size of “The Game,” it’s almost impossible for one team to look past another even though the Buckeyes have another major showdown a week later when they face No. 11 Michigan State in the Big Ten title game on Dec. 7 in Indianapolis. “There’s no chance of us overlooking a team from here on out,” Buckeyes defensive tackle Michael Bennett said. “You’ve got That Team Up North, the Big Ten championship and whatever comes after that. “Every week from here on out is a bowl week.” Urban Meyer won his first MichiganOhio State game as a head coach a year ago, 26-21, by shutting out the Wolverines in the second half and edging past them on two field goals by Drew Basil. Moments after his team beat Indiana, Meyer said there was not time to waste to get ready for Michigan (although, of course, he did not speak that word). “I have great respect for this rivalry — it almost makes me in awe,” he added. “The respect we have comes with incredible responsibility that sometimes can be overwhelming (when it comes) to what we have to do next week. So we take it very seriously. We’re working on the game as we speak. We’re all going to go home, see our families and then we’re coming back (Sunday) to get ready to go.” Michigan, ranked as high as 11th in the nation during a 5-0 start to the season, has had its hopes dashed. The latest punch to the gut was blowing a 14-point, second-half lead at Iowa on Saturday in a 24-21 defeat. Afterward, coach Brady Hoke — like Meyer an Ohio native — was asked what objectives remained for his team. “We play for our seniors. That’s been the first thing we always play for,” he replied. “And we’ve got a pretty big rivalry game next week. … And we’ve got one more opportunity for our seniors in that stadium.” Nothing would please the Wolverines more than to ruin Ohio State’s perfect season and shot at a national title. That’s what happened back in 1969, when Hayes’ Buckeyes defending national champions had won 22 in a row and were ranked No. 1 but lost to rookie coach Bo Schembechler 24-12 in

Iron Bowl to match top-5 teams
BY RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press Breaking down The Associated Press college football poll after Week 12 of the regular season. ___ SUPER IRON BOWL The Iron Bowl is always important. For this Iron Bowl, the stakes are higher than ever before, and so are the rankings of Alabama and Auburn. Auburn moved up to No. 4 in The Associated Press college football poll Sunday, taking advantage of losses by Baylor and Oregon to set up the second top-five matchup in Iron Bowl history. On Saturday at Auburn, it’ll be No. 1 Alabama against the Tigers. The winner takes the SEC West and gets a trip to the Southeastern Conference championship game. The first and only time the Crimson Tide and Tigers played with both teams ranked in the top five was 1971. No. 3 Alabama and coach Bear Bryant beat No. 5 Auburn 31-7 and went on to play No. 1 Nebraska in the Orange Bowl. The Cornhuskers won that game 38-6. In this case, Alabama has a straight shot to the BCS national championship game. Beat Auburn and win the SEC title game, and it’s on to the Rose Bowl to try to win an unprecedented third straight national title. For Auburn (10-1), it’s a little more complicated. Even with an SEC title, the Tigers might not be able to pass No. 3 Ohio State or No. 2 Florida State. The latest BCS standings on Sunday had Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State on top, and a big drop off to Auburn in fourth. There has already been speculation about the possibility of a one-loss SEC champion — either Auburn or fifth-ranked Missouri — getting into the BCS title game over an undefeated Ohio State. That seems like a stretch — and the mere suggestion is enough to send Buckeyes fans into a rage — but first things first. Alabama, which tuned up for Auburn with a 49-0 light workout against Chattanooga, opened as a 10½-point favorite against the Tigers, who took the week off. “I really don’t care what their record is,” Tide quarterback AJ McCarron told reporters Saturday about Auburn. “They’re still the next team in our way.” While Auburn’s national title hopes were bolstered by the failings of Baylor (49-17 loss at No. 7 Oklahoma State) and Oregon (42-16 loss at Arizona), McCarron seemed to get a boost in the Heisman Trophy race thanks to Saturday’s results. Baylor’s Bryce Petty and Oregon’s Marcus Mariota put up decent numbers, but neither played well. Also, Johnny Manziel, last year’s winner, played his worst game of the season in Texas A&M’s 34-10 loss to LSU.

College Football Schedule

Ann Arbor, Mich. That game touched off the tense and tempestuous “Ten-Year War” between the furiously competitive head coaches. This year, the Buckeyes remain behind Alabama and Florida State in the BCS rankings, which determine the two teams headed for the national championship game. They need to win out and get some help to play in the title game on Jan. 6 in Pasadena, Calif. Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier, who had 20 tackles including five for negative yardage in the snow against Indiana, said the Buckeyes can’t be distracted by winning streaks, the BCS and everything else which will have the opposing fan bases crowing at each other this week. “The best thing we can do is keep winning and stay focused on what we’re doing,” he added. “And don’t think what’s going on in the outside world.” BUCKEYES BUZZ: Make no mistake about it: It’s big that the Buckeyes are playing in their first Big Ten championship game. As winners of the Leaders Division, they’ll face off against Legends Division winner Michigan State in their first conference title game on Dec. 7 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Still, no Ohio State player is pointing for that when Michigan is standing in the way. The Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0) play the Wolverines (7-4, 3-4) at Michigan Stadium on Saturday at noon. So, sure, it’s a big deal to be playing for Big Ten bragging rights. But before that, there’s the bragging rights in “The Game,” considered one of if not the most hotly contested rivalries in all of college football. “We’re not looking forward to the championship game. We have a huge game coming up this week,” TB Carlos Hyde said after running for 117 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday’s 42-14 win over Indiana on senior day at Ohio Stadium. “We want to focus on that. Try to get the win in that, THEN focus on the next one.” Occasionally, it takes time to get into the rhythms of the rivalry.

The Maple Leafs opened the game quickly with help from junior Stefon Luckey, taking a 9-5 lead at the 17:16 mark of the first half after the shifty point guard converted a hoop and harm for his fifth point of the game. However, Will Pope (Somerville/Preble Shawnee) found fellow senior Dustin Kinn (Alvada/New Regal) under the basket for two, sparking an 8-0 run that put the Beavers up 13-9 at the 14:16 mark. Two baskets from Goshen tied the game at 13 before Bluffton’s inside game sent the Beavers on a 8-2 run, sparked by a Pope layup, giving the Beavers a 21-15 lead with a little over 10 minutes to play in the half. The Maple Leafs answered with a quick 5-0 run which gave them a 22-21 lead with nine minutes remaining but more solid inside play from the Beavers helped the home team close the half on a 21-9 jag, giving them a comfortable 42-31 edge at halftime. In order to stop the beating inside, the Maple Leafs started the second half by crowding the key in a 2-3 zone, making it difficult for the Beavers to get the ball down low. As a result, the Beavers got some open looks on the wing but struggled to capitalize as they shot 2-for-12 (16.7 percent) from beyond the arc and only 11-for-29 (37.9 percent) overall from the field in the final stanza. The lack of offense for the Beavers gave Goshen the green light to get back into the game. After a Kinn layin made the score 46-33 at the 17:19 mark, Goshen went on a 7-0 run to cut the Beaver lead to just six with 15:33 remaining. The only two made 3-pointers of the second half, one from Matt Weisenborn (Bowling Green/Otsego)

and one from Ryan Ebbeskotte (Delphos/Jefferson), as well as another chip shot from Pope helped push the lead to 10 with 12:11 left in the game, but a 12-0 spurt gave the visitors a 56-54 advantage with 8:45 to play. The remainder of the half saw two lead changes and six ties. The Beavers tied the score at 71 when Ebbeskotte found the bottom of the net on a jumper from the elbow with 18 seconds left but the Maple Leafs, holding out for the last shot of the game, put the ball in the hot hands of Luckey who pulled up from 10 feet and drained a jumper going away from the basket with just one second on the clock to give the visitors a 73-71 victory. Pope finished the day as Bluffton’s leading scorer, tallying 21 points while converting 9-of13 shots from the field and 3-of-4 free throws. Pope also led in the rebounding category with four offensive and four defensive boards for eight total. Ebbeskotte chipped in with 12 points after shooting 5-of-8 from the field (2-of-3 from behind the arc) and doled out a game-high eight assists. Sophomore Thayne Recker (Arlington) finished with 11 points and four rebounds, while Kinn and Nate Chambers (Miamisburg) added 10 points and four rebounds each. Billy Taflinger (Lima/Central Catholic) and Weisenborn rounded out the scoring column with four and three points, respectively. The Beavers ended the day shooting 50 percent (30-of-50) from the field, including a 3-of-15 clip from behind the arc. They added eight free throws in 12 attempts. Bluffton won the rebounding category (29-25) and also committed three fewer turnovers (12-9) than the Maple Leafs.

Tri-county Driving Instructor Tom Osting said that he often sees people driving with their face up to the windshield trying to look through a small area scraped off during the winter. “It’s an accident looking for a place to happen,” Osting said somberly. He said drivers need to take that extra five minutes to defrost their windows, use a windshield washer fluid with ice melt or use a can of aerosol ice melter and remove all obstructions on their windows.


“Vehicle owners should check that their wipers are good, too,” Osting recommended. “Replace them once a year to see much better.” Even though Ohio has no law addressing the removal of snow and ice from vehicles, there is a state law that could apply and requires operators to have a clear and unobstructed view to the front, both sides and rear of the vehicle. Fittro explained, in short, Ohio Revised Code 4513.24 — “Windshield and windshield wipers — states that no person shall drive any motor vehicle, other than a bus,

with any sign, poster, or other nontransparent material upon the front windshield, side wings, side, or rear windows of such vehicle other than a certificate or other paper required to be displayed by law.” Sheriff’s deputies in Geauga County have stopped people driving with snow or ice covering their windows and given them a warning and Chagrin Falls police officers will not hesitate to pull a driver over and compel them into cleaning the snow and ice off their windows, hood, roof and trunk. Another consideration is the rise in auto

After that season, Barney left school and returned to Delphos and was drafted into the military in 1957. After a two year stint in the military, he returned home where he married his sweetheart and former classmate Jane O’Neill, joined the Delphos Police Department and started a family. Barney and Jane would raise five kids: Dan, Mike, Sue, Tim and Becky, all Blue Jays. It was shortly after his return to Delphos that Barney received a call from St. John’s principal Monsignor Reineck, who told him that Coach Arnzen wanted him as an assistant coach for the basketball team. Barney said yes and that started a long and successful coaching career at St. John’s. Actually, Barney had previous coaching experience as he was the seventh-grade basketball coach at St. John’s during his senior year in high school. Barney and good friend, Gip Pohlman, took over the junior high program at St. John’s. Barney states that his goal in coaching wasn’t just to win games but to help kids, especially those who struggled, to become good basketball players and better young men. He coached and helped hundreds of kids during his 24-year coaching career and even had time to rack up six undefeated seasons. He spent nearly 30 years at his real job as a Delphos police officer before retiring in 1987. He even found time to coach Little League baseball with good friend and fellow officer Jerry Kemper. Barney credits numerous people for helping him to succeed, not only as a player and coach but as a man. He recalls the lessons he learned from a great teacher in Miss Marie Hageman, along with his coach, Arnzen, and longtime St. John’s pastor, Bishop Albert Ottenweller. P r o f e s s i o n a l Achievement Robert Kill - Class of 1955 Robert Kill was his class valedictorian in 1955 and has been reaching for the stars ever since. After graduating from DSJ, Bob attended college at the prestigious University of Notre Dame, where he received his bachelor’s degree in economics. Next, he attended Michigan State University and received his MBA. He was immediately hired by the largest food company in the United States - Beatrice Foods Co. His career at Beatrice spanned 23 years, where he rose to corporate vice president for the company. Bob left Beatrice to join Keystone Foods in Philadelphia (one of the largest dedicated suppliers to McDonald’s), becoming president. After Keystone, he became a senior exec-

utive for a food research and marketing organization, where he had the chance to travel the world. However, “About my third trip to Hong Kong, I discovered it was just like going to Detroit, except the plane ride was a lot longer.” Bob credits his father for much of his success: “My father was an amazing man who taught me the value of hard work. He delivered Meadow Gold milk, a physically demanding job and yet, I don’t remember his ever taking a day off!” Bob tried to retire from corporate life in 1994, but a friend suggested taking over the Indiana-based Hacienda Mexican restaurant chain. Bob was intrigued and claims: “I became an ‘accidental entrepreneur’ that day.” With Bob’s guidance as CEO the chain grew from eight restaurants to 18 and he retired from the company as chairman of the board. He recalls that the job brought a lot of satisfaction as a mentor, “I enjoyed working with the managers and then hearing my philosophy repeated as they trained their teams.” Following his second retirement, Bob took the time to publish some of that philosophy in a booklet he titled “Top 20 List, Advice on how to be the CEO of your own life.” He donates all of the book proceeds to charity. Bob has always believed in the importance of “giving back” and has done so in many ways and in many areas. He has been a member of Notre Dame’s Advisory Council for the College of Arts and Letters; spent time as president of the South Bend Symphony Orchestra; was chairman of the local Red Cross; served on the board of the South Bend Community Foundation and became the chairman of a joint venture of South Bend’s two hospitals to create a physicians practice for the underserved of his community. Bob and his wife, Pat, a Toledo native, live outside South Bend, Ind., not far from his second alma mater. We are proud to induct Bob Kill into the Hall of Fame and hope that many of our graduates can emulate his life of professional success, leadership and community service. Service to St. John’s Fran Voll Voll is a native of Marion and a 1968 graduate of Bowling Green State University. He also received his master’s degree in 1972 from St. Francis University. He joined St. John’s in 1968 — and became a legend. For 16 years, beginning in 1975, Voll was the hottest coach in Northwest Ohio. While serving as girls head basketball coach during nine years at St. John’s, he established the best percentage of wins in the nation (92 percent) according to USA

Today – with 208 wins and 17 losses. His players earned All-American honors and he had numerous All-State players. In nine seasons, he took the Blue Jays to the state tournament semifinals six times and came away with three state championships. The Blue Jays were 74-1 over three seasons, while winning the 1977, 1979 and 1980 crowns. “When I took over as girls coach at Delphos St. John’s, the boys coach, Bob Arnzen, was very progressive in his views of women’s sports. He said to me, ‘I don’t think you coach girls any differently than boys.’ I coached the girls the only way I knew how and they reacted very positively!” Coach Voll was twice named Associated Press Coach of the Year and once by United Press International. In 1984, he was named the Ohio High School Girls Basketball Coaches Association - Coach of the Year for all classes. During this time, he helped give direction to girls sports statewide as he served on the Girls Coaches Advisory Board. In 1984, he continued his successes for seven more years at Bowling Green State University, where his team won four consecutive Mid-American Conference tournament championships and three regular season Mid-American Conference championships (1984-1990). Fran also notes that during the time he was at Bowling Green, all three of his sons Joe, Matt and Mike ,graduated from the university during his tenure. All three sons are teachers and coaches in Ohio today. Fran was also named Mid-American Coach of the Year for the 198687 and 1988-89 seasons. He led BGSU to the first appearance ever by a MidAmerican conference team in the Women’s NCAA Basketball Tournament during the 1986-87 season and followed that, with appearances in 1987-88, 1988-89 and 1989-90 seasons. Following his career at Bowling Green, Coach Voll went to Central Michigan University for five years before returning to Marion, where he served as a high school principal at Marion Catholic High School until his retirement in 2010. He lives with his wife, Marty, in Marion. Service to Mankind Jerry Kemper Class of 1966 Big shoes. On the floor of the locker room at the Delphos Police Department are two big footprints. They were painted in front of Kemper’s locker by his fellow officers. They represented the big shoes of a big man. But when Jerry passed away in 1999, those footprints represented the big shoes he left to fill. Kemper was a family man. But that family went much

further than his parents Leo and Angela Kemper: brothers Mike and Steve; wife Cyndi; sons Scott, Kevin, Jeff and Chris; and grandchildren Brittany, Kevin, Cecilia and Christina. Jerry’s family was anyone he came in contact with and anyone who shared his hometown of Delphos. It was the influence not only of his parents but also the nuns, priests and teachers at St. John’s, especially Fr. Kuhn, that led Jerry to embrace every kid as his kid and every friend as a family member. As a boy, he served Mass at St. John’s Catholic Church and played Little League Baseball. He continued as an adult to serve his church as an usher, Eucharistic minister, parish council member and vacation Bible school camp leader. Likewise he spent more than 30 years coaching and administrating the Delphos Little League Baseball program. Another love was the Boy Scouts. As a boy, he was a member of Pack 42, Troop 65 of the Boy Scouts. As an adult, he served in every aspect of the Scouts, leading to his being awarded the St. George Award in 1999. The prestigious St. George Award is the highest honor that an adult Scouter can receive and was the most meaningful to him of his many Scouting honors. He was a faithful and active member of the Knights of Columbus, the Tri-County Ham Radio Club and Delphos Coon and Sportsman Club. He also served on the Delphos EMS, Lima Chapter of the American Red Cross and was Disaster Coordinator for Allen and Van Wert counties. Jerry might be best remembered by most as a Delphos police officer. He spent 27 years on the force, not surprisingly much of it involved with kids programs at the schools. All his activities resulted in Jerry being honored with honors and awards too numerous to mention. But perhaps his greatest reward was the smiles and high fives he received from “his kids” after accomplishing a task or just seeing each other around town. Jerry and his wife Cyndi always strived to teach their sons their Christian faith, the value of hard work, that friends are family, too, and that to volunteer to do something for no pay has its own reward. Their hope is that their children and all their other “kids” would someday grow up able to fill Jerry’s big shoes. Jerry passed away on Dec. 4, 1999, at the age of 51 and is dearly missed by all who knew him.

New research aims to teach computers common sense

insurance premiums after receiving a moving violation. Tips on peephole driving prevention: • Start the vehicle, turn up the heat and turn on the defroster; • While the engine is running, step out and spray a de-icing solution on your windshield; • Use an ice scraper with a long handle to get some leverage to scrape the ice from the windows; and • Continue to clean all windows on the vehicle and remove ice or snow from the hood, trunk, roof and bumpers.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Researchers are trying to plant a digital seed for artificial intelligence by letting a massive computer system browse millions of pictures and decide for itself what they all mean. The system at Carnegie Mellon University is called NEIL, short for Never Ending Image Learning. In mid-July, it began searching the Internet for images 24/7 and, in tiny steps, is deciding for itself how those images relate to each other. The goal is to recreate what we call common sense — the ability to learn things without being specifically taught. It’s a new approach in the quest to solve computing’s Holy Grail: getting a machine to think on its own using a form of common sense. The project is being funded by Google and the Department of Defense’s Office of Naval Research. “Any intelligent being needs to have common sense to make decisions,” said Abhinav Gupta, a professor in the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute. NEIL uses advances in computer vision to analyze and identify the shapes and colors in pictures, but it is also slowly discovering connections between objects on its own. For example, the computers have figured out that zebras tend to be found in savannahs and that tigers look somewhat like zebras. In just over four months, the network of 200 processors has identified 1,500 objects and 1,200 scenes and has connected the dots to make 2,500 associations. Some of NEIL’s computer-generated associations are wrong, such as “rhino can be a kind of antelope,” while some are odd, such as “actor can be found in jail cell” or “news anchor can look similar to Barack Obama.”

The Delphos Herald ... Your No. 1 source for local news.

Dear Sara: What were the first few frugal things you tried? -- L.K., Texas Dear L.K.: I focused a lot on meal planning and cooking. I stopped eating out as often (packing lunches and snacks and having at least a weekly menu for dinners) and cut sugary drinks and a lot of prepared foods from my diet. From there, I started to pay closer attention to my electricity usage

Being frugal starts with small changes
and any unnecessary driving. I started to track all of my spending, too. Dear Sara: What free or low-cost activities can you still find out there? Just the activity, not the supplies or the costs involved to get there. -- S.S., Indiana Dear S.S.: Here are a few of my family favorites: Going to the beach or sprayground, disc golf, biking on the bike trail, skating (we play roller hockey at our local outdoor rink), running, walking, visiting parks (you could create a handmade passport to parks in your area and visit them all), the library, free concerts, picnics, hiking at the nature center, playing cards, table games, outdoor games, paper airplanes, origami, squirt guns and water balloons, backyard camping, scavenger hunts, baking cupcakes, making ice cream floats, homemade popsicles, smoothies or sundaes, fishing, blanket forts and photography. I could go on and on with lowcost activities. It does get harder once your children are in their teens. But with a little encouragement or your willingness to include one of their friends,

Wintry storm threatens Thanksgiving travels
Associated Press A large storm already blamed for at least eight deaths in the West slogged through Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and other parts of the Southwest on Sunday, leading to hundreds of flight cancellations as it slowly churned east ahead of Thanksgiving. After the storm plows through the Southwest, meteorologists expect the Arctic mass to head south and east, threatening plans for Tuesday and Wednesday as people hit the roads and airports for some of the busiest travel days of the year. More than 300 flights were cancelled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, representing about one-third of the scheduled departures, and a spokeswoman said deicing equipment had been prepared as officials planned for the worst in a flurry of conference calls and meetings.

Congress plans tough Iran sanctions if deal fails
WASHINGTON (AP) — Lawmakers from both parties said Sunday they are skeptical that Iran will stick to a new nuclear deal and want Congress to prepare beefed-up economic penalties to hit Tehran if the accord falls apart. In an early morning announcement, Tehran agreed Sunday to a six-month pause of its nuclear program while diplomats continue talks aimed at preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. International observers are set to monitor Iran’s nuclear sites and ease about $7 billion of the crippling economic sanctions. But the announcement, after months of secret face-to-face talks between the United States and Iran, left many U.S. lawmakers deeply doubtful of the most significant agreement between Washington and Tehran after more than three decades of estrangement. The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations

Modest deal breaks deadlock at UN climate talks

Connecting With Customers… Connecting With Customers…

Connecting With Customers…

Committee, Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, said Sunday he would work with colleagues to have sanctions against Iran ready “should the talks falter or Iran fail to implement or breach the interim agreement.” Such distrust that Iran was negotiating in good faith ran across political parties that are otherwise deeply divided. And ready-to-go sanctions seemed to have rare bipartisan support across both of Congress’ chambers. The House in July passed its latest round of sanctions against Iran with backing from both parties, but the measure stalled in the Senate. President Barack Obama convinced Senate leadership to hold off consideration of the measure while negotiators pursued an agreement. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada agreed to the request but said his chamber would take up new sanctions in December — with or without an agreement with Iran.

Will icy comet survive close encounter with sun?
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — For months, all eyes in the sky have pointed at the comet that’s zooming toward a blisteringly close encounter with the sun. The moment of truth comes Thursday — Thanksgiving Day. The sun-grazing Comet ISON, now thought to be less than a mile wide, will either fry and shatter, victim of the sun’s incredible power, or endure and quite possibly put on one fabulous celestial show. Talk about an astronomical cliffhanger. Even the smartest scientists are reluctant to lay odds.

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Avoiding a last-minute breakdown, annual U.N. climate talks limped forward Saturday with a modest set of decisions meant to pave the way for a new pact to fight global warming. More than 190 countries agreed in Warsaw to start preparing “contributions” for the new deal, which is supposed to be adopted in 2015. That term was adopted after China and India objected to the word “commitments” in a standoff with the U.S. and other developed countries. The fast-growing economies say they are still developing countries and shouldn’t have to take on as strict commitments to cut carbon emissions as industrialized nations. “In the nick of time, negotiators in Warsaw delivered just enough to keep things moving,” said Jennifer Morgan, of the World Resources Institute, an environmental think tank. The conference also advanced a program to reduce deforestation and established a “loss and damage” mechanism to help island states and other vulnerable countries under threat from rising seas, extreme weather and other climate impacts. The wording was vague enough to make rich countries feel comfortable that they weren’t going to be held liable for climate catastrophes in the developing world.

Should it survive, ISON, pronounced EYE’-sahn, would be visible with the naked eye through December, at least from the Northern Hemisphere. Discernible at times in November with ordinary binoculars and occasionally even just the naked eye, it already has dazzled observers and is considered the most scrutinized comet ever by NASA. But the best is, potentially, yet to come. Detected just over a year ago, the comet is passing through the inner solar system for the first time. Still fresh, this comet is thought to bear the pristine matter of the beginning of our solar system.
