Satellite spots objects; search expands south
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Search planes flew out of Australia today to scour rough seas in one of the remotest places on Earth for objects that may be from the missing Malaysia Airlines plane. In what one official called the “best lead” of the nearly 2-week-old aviation mystery, a satellite detected two large objects floating off the southwest coast of Australia about halfway to the desolate islands of the Antarctic. The area in the southern Indian Ocean is so remote is takes aircraft longer to fly there — four hours — than it allows for the search. The discovery raised new hope of finding the vanished jet and sent another emotional jolt to the families of the 239 people aboard. A search Thursday with four planes in cloud and rain found nothing, and Australian authorities said early today efforts were resuming with the first of five aircraft — a Royal Australian Air Force
Missing Malaysian plane
P3 Orion — leaving at dawn for the area about 2,300 kilometers (1,400 miles) from western Australia. A civilian Gulfstream jet and a second Orion were to depart later this morning and a third Orion was due to fly out in the early afternoon to scour more than 23,000 square kilometers (8,880 square miles) of ocean. A U.S. Navy P-8 Poseidon aircraft was scheduled to leave the base at about 4 p.m. (0600 GMT), but like the other planes, it will have enough fuel for only two to three hours of search time before returning to Perth. A New Zealand P-3 Orion plane took part in the unsuccessful search Thursday, and Mike Yardley, an air commodore with New Zealand’s air force, said the plane was forced to duck below thick clouds and fog to a very low altitude of 60 meters (200 feet), hampering the operation.

Shumaker joins Lima FOP
Larry Shumaker, center, joined the Police Force in Delphos in 1979. Due to a health condition, he had to retire in 1996. He is now residing in Lima Manor. He had been a member of the Van Wert FOP but when his health deteriorated even more, he was unable to continue his membership. Since moving in to Lima Manor, Shumaker expressed an interest in attending the FOP again. With the help of the staff at Lima Manor and Delphos Police Chief Kyle Fittro, he was able to join. Shumaker took his oath at the Lima FOP on Tuesday. (Submitted photo)

For The Record
At 2:49 a.m. Sunday, a Delphos Police Officer on patrol conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for an equipment violation. Officers made contact with the driver, 18-year-old Cody Stahl of Lima. During the investigation of the equipment violation, officers observed Stahl to be in possession of alcohol. It was also found that he had consumed alcohol. As a result, Stahl was charged with operating a vehicle after underage consumption, open container of alcohol, underage possession of alcohol and the equipment violation. He will appear in Van Wert Municipal to face the charge. At 6:21 p.m. Sunday, Delphos officers were sent to a residence in the 700 block of Harmon Street, where a male subject was barricaded in his room threatening to harm himself or others with a knife. Officers had to force entry into the room where they met with the combative subject. Moments later, officers took the male into custody, where he was transported to the hospital for observation. The male will be charged with obstructing official business and will appear in Lima Municipal Court at a later date. At 6:53 p.m. Monday, officers were sent to the 900 block of Lima Avenue in response to a domestic violence complaint. Upon arrival, officers met with a juvenile male and his mother. It was found that the juvenile had attempted to assault others in the household. The juvenile was briefly taken into custody but later released to his mother. The incident was resolved and no charges are to be filed. At 3:43 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a burglary complaint in the 400 block of South Cass Street. Upon arrival, it was found that someone had gained entry into the residence and stole electronic items. This incident is currently under investigation. At 1:58 p.m. Wednesday, the Delphos Police Department received a call from a business in the 1000 block of Elida Avenue reporting a theft incident.

Libertarians file appeal VW Outdoorsmen to get on May ballot host Turkey Shoot
Information submitted MIDDLE POINT — The Van Wert County Outdoorsmen Association will host a Turkey Shoot at 1:30 p.m. Sunday. The club will provide the shotgun shells for the Turkey Shoot. Twelve-gauge shotguns only are to be used. Children and women may use a 20-gauge shotgun and the club will provide the shells for these, too. The club also has 20-gauge loaner shoguns if they are needed. The cost is $3 per round. The Van Wert County Outdoorsmen Association is located at 9065 Ringwald Road, Middle Point. For more information, contact 419-889-9124. COLUMBUS (AP) — The Libertarian Party of Ohio appealed a federal judge’s order Thursday in an effort to get its gubernatorial candidate on the May primary ballot. Attorneys for the party also asked the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati to compel Ohio’s elections chief to ask for an exemption to avoid printing the primary ballots, which are slated to be mailed to certain military and overseas voters on Saturday. Some local election boards have already printed primary ballots, while others can print them right before mailing them. Charlie Earl’s candidacy would have the potential to draw votes from Republican Gov. John Kasich as the incumbent faces likely Democratic challenger Ed FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga County executive. Secretary of State Jon Husted had disqualified gubernatorial contender Earl and the Libertarian candidate for attorney general, Steven Linnabary, after their nominating petitions were challenged on two grounds: that signature gatherers failed to comply with Ohio laws requiring them to be either Libertarian or political independents and another requiring them to disclose their employer. Husted agreed with a hearing officer who found that two Earl petitioners failed to properly disclose their employers. Libertarians sought to reinstate Earl’s ballot status, arguing that Husted’s ruling violated petition circulators’ First Amendment

5-inch pipeline crack leaks oil in preserve
CINCINNATI (AP) — A 5-inch crack in a pipeline caused more than 10,000 gallons of crude oil to leak into a suburban nature preserve, officials said Thursday. The crack was found on the underside of the 20-inch-diameter pipeline, which leaked the oil in the 374-acre Oak Glen Nature Preserve in Colerain Township, just north of Cincinnati, township fire department Capt. Steve Conn said. The oil, discovered Monday night in a wooded ravine and wetlands, leaked into an intermittent stream and into an acre-sized marshy area, but no problems had been found with air quality or water wells in the area, Conn said. Efforts were underway to protect salamanders by preventing them from entering the contaminated area, said Jennifer Sivak, a spokeswoman for the Great Parks of Hamilton County system that manages the preserve. “This is their typical mating season, and they are coming out now,” Sivak said Thursday. “We are putting down fences to redirect them to traps and relocating them to Miami Whitewater Forest.”
VW County Board of Elections announces registration deadline
Information submitted VAN WERT — The Van Wert County Board of Elections has announced that the close of registration for the May 6 Primary Election is 9 p.m. April 7. The board office will be open from 8:30 a.m.-9 p.m. on April 7. Anyone not currently registered in Van Wert County or who has moved since the November general election and not changed their address with the Board of Elections should stop by one of the following locations and update their registration. Registration locations in Van Wert County are: Van Wert License Bureau; Brumback and Delphos Public Library; Department of Human Services; WIC, Treasurer’s, Auditor’s and Title Departments in the Court House; and the Board of Election office at 120 E. Main St. Any questions regarding voter registration may be answered by contacting the board office at 419-238-4192.
rights and conflicted with previous state rulings allowing them to submit signatures without declaring an employer. U.S. District Court Judge Michael Watson ruled against the request, concluding that the law challenged by the party “places only a minimal burden on political speech and the disclosures it requires are substantially related to Ohio’s significant interest in deterring and detecting fraud in the candidate petition process.” Separately, Linnabary is asking the Ohio Supreme Court force Husted to certify his candidacy and place him on the May 6 ballot. Attorneys for Linnabary argue that the man who protested his petitions lacked standing to do so. Linnabary’s attorneys also contend the law does not require certain petition circulators to disclose employment because they are independent contractors. The state’s attorneys said Thursday that the high court should deny Linnabary’s request because, among other arguments, his petition circulators should have disclosed their employment, regardless of whether they are “employees” or “independent contractors.” “This is a simple case about a candidate who did not follow the law — a law that is plain in its meaning, that is easy to comply CINCINNATI (AP) — they want to do whatever they with, and that serves an important purpose,” While Ohio law calls for want to do in secretive sesattorneys for the state wrote in their court government that is open to sions,” attorney Christopher filing. the public, shadowy decision- Finney said. making has led to recent court He was involved in the battles and a legislative effort lawsuit that resulted this to shed more light. month in a Warren County So-called “Sunshine judge’s ruling ordering Laws,” highlighted across Clearcreek Township trustees the nation this week, go to stop making decisions in back decades in promoting gatherings outside of schedaccess to governments and uled public meetings.

Blanchard River Watershed Partnership seeks volunteers
Information submitted PUTNAM COUNTY — The Blanchard River Watershed Partnership (BRWP) is seeking volunteers to help gather information and collect data to start writing a watershed action plan for the Cranberry Creek watershed. Since 2011, the BRWP has received full endorsement from the Ohio EPA and ODNR for two Watershed Action Plans. As a result of these endorsements, the BRWP and agencies in the area have been awarded over 4.4 million dollars in grant money to help improve the water quality in the two subwatersheds. By having volunteers help collect the data and information from the Cranberry Creek watershed, the BRWP hopes to have the Watershed Action Plan for Cranberry Creek completed sometime in 2015. The volunteers will need to attend a meeting to receive instructions on what data and information needs to be collected. If you are interested in volunteering for this project, please send an email to the Partnership at email@example.com or call Phil Martin, watershed coordinator, at 419-4226487. The BRWP represents the six counties of the Blanchard River Watershed and is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving water quality through developing citizen involvement and watershed action plans. Volunteers are welcome to join activities at any time. Learn more about the Blanchard River on the BRWP website at www. BlanchardRiver.org.

Suspect pleads not guilty in Fremont bar shooting
FREMONT (AP) — A suspected gunman has pleaded not guilty in a northern Ohio bar shooting that left three men dead, including an off-duty officer. Igmidio Mista was in a Fremont courtroom Thursday where he pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and other charges. He faces up to life in prison if convicted. The shooting on March 9 at the Last Call Bar in Fremont left an off-duty police officer dead, along with one of his relatives and a bartender. Investigators and family members of the victims say a fight broke out in the bar just before the shooting.

NEW YORK -- It was a perfectly ordinary invitation to gather for Christian fellowship, the kind of message believers often circulate among colleagues that they know share their faith. In this case, Michael Luo invited a circle of fellow journalists in The New York Times newsroom to breakfast, including one former pastor of an evangelical church. Yes, this tiny Times flock plans to gather again. No, the veteran reporter was not willing to name any names. "The Times is like a lot of other elite cultural institutions," said Luo, speaking at The King's College in lower Manhattan's financial district. The newsroom is full of "cosmopolitan, urban types, highly educated people who went to the top colleges whose cultural sensibilities are probably more shaped ... by the Upper West Side and Park Slope, Brooklyn, than, you know, the Bible Belt. "So it's certainly not the easiest place to say that you're a Christian. In fact, some of those people at that breakfast who have confided their faith to me have often sworn me to secrecy." After giving the matter careful thought, Luo did mention his public lecture at the evangelical college -- "Articles of Faith: A Believer's Journey Through The New York Times" -- on his Facebook page.
Praying for better journalism at the New York Times
4 – The Herald
Friday, March 21, 2014
The Harvard graduate has faced more than his share of tricky situations, whether reporting in war-torn Iraq or in the culture wars of two White House campaigns. After one of his many Times pieces on loopholes in guncontrol laws, AmmoLand.com ran his photo with a caption that called him a "biased antigun" reporter. During the 2007 Values Voters Summit, Luo tried to assure participants that he was a churchgoer who genuinely wanted to understand their beliefs. One activist then introduced Luo to a prominent conservative Christian by saying, "Don't worry, he goes to church." The leader responded, "Well, he'll have to prove it," with a snarl. "I was thinking," Luo recalled, "what am I going to have to do, quote my favorite Bible verses or give him the Four Spiritual Laws?"
On the other side of the church aisle are well-meaning Christians who insist that Luo's goal should be to "bring Christian truth to the pages of the Times." The implication, he said, is that he should smuggle an evangelical agenda into the "newspaper of record" and let it shape his work. That would be a disaster, Luo said, and would allow other professionals to label him that "Jesus freak guy" or a "religious zealot." This would destroy whatever trust and respect he has earned during his decade at the Times, which recently led to his appointment as deputy metro editor with much of his work focusing on investigative reporting and, yes, religion coverage. Luo stressed that one of his goals is to live out the recommendations of a 2005 Times self-study -- entitled "Preserving Our Readers' Trust" -- that urged editors to do more to cover "unorthodox views," "contrarian opinions" and the lives of those "more radical and more conservative" than those usually found in their newsroom. In addition to seeking diversity of gender, race and ethnicity, the report said: "We should pursue the same diversity in other dimensions of life, and for the same reason -- to ensure that a broad range of viewpoints is at the table when we decide what to write about and how to present it." It would help, the report noted,
if Times editors sought out "talented journalists who happen to have military experience, who know rural America first hand, who are at home in different faiths." Thus, Luo said he has tried to become a resource to help the newspaper do fair, accurate, informed news coverage of a wider variety of religious believers. The goal is to avoid "loaded language" that frequently confuses "theological terms with political ones." It also would help, he said, if journalists spent more time covering religion stories rooted in the details of daily life, rather than focusing almost exclusively on political conflicts, both in pews and in public life. "I would argue that when we screw up, it's not because of some sort of overt prejudice," he said. "The problem usually is that you can't know what you don't know. ... So ignorance can obviously lead to inaccurate and misleading characterizations and, yes, it can lead to bias sometimes seeping into the ways Christians are depicted."

Stratton to share stories from ‘... Behind the Badge’
Information submitted From the detective magazines of the 20th century to the modern cinema, Americans love crime stories. But removed from the national spotlight, some of the most interesting stories are the ones that occur in your own hometown. Former police detective Don Stratton knows this first-hand and is sharing those stories in his book, “The View From Behind a Badge.” The book is best described as often humorous stories from a 50-year police career. The stories are told from the perspective of someone who held virtually every position within the Lima Police Department, from Rookie Patrolman to Acting Chief of Police. “It is a no holds barred, insider’s look at a police agency, warts and all.” The Allen County Museum will host Stratton at 2 p.m. March 30 for a presentation and book signing. His talk will include how he came to Lima, his early years here and his career with the LPD. There will be excerpts from the book and other stories not included in the book. Don Stratton was raised by his grandparents on a tenant farm near Winchester. His father moved to Lima before World War II and when Don came here for a two-week visit in 1949, he decided to stay. He enrolled in Lima Central High School and graduated in 1953. After graduation, he couldn’t afford college and became a salesman for Pepsi Cola. In 1960, he was appointed to the Lima Police Department. Stratton subsequently held every rank in the department before being promoted to his final position of inspector, wherein he commanded the uniform division in 1978. He retired from the LPD in 1988 and has been an auxiliary officer since that time. Stratton enrolled in college for the first time at the age of 33, majoring in sociology at Ohio Northern University. He was instrumental in starting the law enforcement program at Lima Technical College in the early 1970s. Later, he taught police administration and personnel administration in that same program. Stratton holds an AA degree from Rhodes State College and completed post-degree work in public administration at Upper Iowa University. Stratton and his wife, Verna, have been married for 35 years, have three children, seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren. In addition to his police career, he has been an auctioneer for 40 years. This program is free an open to the public.

Unbeaten Knights one step nearer State boys title
BY JOHN PARENT Times Bulletin Sports Editor email@example.com COLUMBUS – Play 29. That’s been the rallying cry of the undefeated and top-ranked Crestview Knights coming into the Division IV tournament. After a 54-50 win over New Madison Tri-Village on Thursday night at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Crestview will do just that. The Knights, now 28-0 on the year, will take on Louisville St. Thomas Aquinas at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. Crestview stands now just one win away from its first-ever boys basketball state championship. For the second straight game, Tyson Bolenbaugh was responsible for a crucial 3-point play that helped seal a Crestview victory. With 5:55 to play in the game on Thursday night, Bolenbaugh got his defender in the air, absorbed contact and wound up on the floor, watching as a desperation shot found its way through the net. Bolenbaugh’s free throw game the Knights a commanding 7-point lead and clutch free throws from Cam Etzler and Damian Helm salted away the Crestview win. Crestview hasn’t trailed at halftime often this season and, after they had jumped out to a 7-2 lead early in the Division IV state semifinals, it didn’t look like Thursday night would be any different. Instead, the Tri-Village Patriots stormed back and opened up a 7-point advantage before settling for a 24-19 lead at the break. Crestview’s offense got started early when senior guard Etzler knocked down a 3-pointer from the top of the arc just 32 seconds into the game. With Etzler adding another field goal later in the period, following four Helm free throws, it looked like Crestview may be in control. Tri-Village center Tyler Cook had other ideas, however. Cook’s 6-6, 245-pound frame proved too big to move off inside position and Cook wound up collecting four offensive rebounds in the first half – three of which came on his own miss. When he wasn’t causing havoc in the low post, Cook was feeding it. Three times, Cook got the ball in the high post, only to lob a pass inside to a teammate. Those three possessions resulted in a pair of baskets and a trip to the free throw line. While the Patriots’ offense was getting in gear, Crestview’s was stalling. Helm, one of four Division IV Players of the Year, had committed four turnovers in the first 16 minutes, three times being called for traveling after a shot fake. While the Knights got threes by Etzler, Preston Zaleski and Isiah Simerman in the first half, they shot just 5-for-20 overall. “We didn’t play the first half we would have liked to,” Crestview head coach Jeremy Best acknowledged. “I think a lot of the credit for that goes to Tri-Village. They are a heck of a basketball team, physically, and we struggled with that a little bit. I think they kind of imposed their will on us in the first half. We weren’t real good in some of our shot selection and we really didn’t man-up, so to speak, on the defensive end.” At halftime, coach Best challenged his team, most notably senior center Tyson Bolenbaugh. “Tri-Village kind of shut me down (in the first half) and I didn’t really know what to do,” Bolenbaugh said. “Coach challenged me, telling me to get engaged – he does that a lot – and I think it really helped.” Bolenbaugh got himself involved early in the third quarter, knocking down a 12-foot jumper from the right wing to bring the Knights back to within two at 24-22. After a Zaleski steal, Etzler banked in a runner down the left side of the lane. On the next Crestview possession, Bolenbaugh pushed the Knights’ run to 7-0 and gave the Knights a 26-24 lead with 6:20 to play in the quarter. Crestview wouldn’t trail again. “We can’t exactly repeat what Coach said to us in the locker room,” Etzler joked after the game. “He definitely lit a fire under our rear ends. He knows how to motivate us. We forced some turnovers, we got some high-percentage shots and that ultimately led to us getting back into the game.” With the Knights leading by a pair, Bolenbaugh asserting himself on the defensive end as well. As Tri-Village junior Damion Cook drive through the lane, Bolenbaugh came from the weak side and swatted away a would-be layup. At the other end of the floor, the senior grabbed an offensive rebound and put it home to make it 30-26. The Knights would take a 6-point advantage to the fourth quarter, building its lead on a Connor Lautzenheiser 3-pointer with a minute to play in the third. Crestview won the third quarter 15-4 thanks to 6-of-14 shooting. Meanwhile, Tri-Village was held to just 1-for-8 from the floor and turned it over five times. “I thought, in the second half, we did a good job making them catch the ball in different spots, or just putting enough pressure on them to throw their timing off,” Best noted. “They ended up with 15 turnovers and every one of them was huge.” Tri-Village wouldn’t go away quietly, however.
Craft, Ohio State fall short in loss to Dayton
Associated Press BUFFALO, N.Y. — Aaron Craft’s career at Ohio State ended with a thud. The senior guard was left lying on his back in the paint looking up toward the rafters after his driving 10-foot jumper rolled off the rim, sealing 11th-ranked Dayton’s 60-59 victory over the sixthseeded Buckeyes in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday. “I just wanted to do everything I could to help our team win and down the stretch I couldn’t do that today,” Craft said. “I can take the blame for that.” Craft finished with 16 points and four steals, upping his Big Ten Conferencerecord total to 337. But he couldn’t steal away a victory in what became the Buckeyes’ earliest tournament exit since a first-round 74-72 overtime loss to Siena in 2009. Vee Sanford hit a layup with 3.8 seconds left to seal the win for Dayton (24-10) in a showdown of Ohio schools separated by just 75 miles. The basket came some 12 seconds after Craft had put the Buckeyes ahead by making a reverse layup. It just so happened that Sanford scored by getting a step around Craft, a 2-time Big Ten defensive player of the year. “There so many things that are going through my mind right now that I wish could have gone differently,but they didn’t,” Craft said. “He made a big-time play and we couldn’t come back.” Buckeyes coach Thad Matta supported Craft. “Honestly, me telling him how to play defense would be like me telling somebody how to build a rocket ship,” Matta said. “I’ll live and die with that kid any day of the year.” Sam Thompson scored 18 points for Ohio State (25-10), which stumbled down the stretch. After opening the season 15-0, the Buckeyes split their final 20 games. It was a back-and-forth game that featured 15 lead changes, befitting of two schools that feature numerous connections. Dayton coach Archie Miller spent two seasons at Ohio State working under Matta. And Flyers guard Jordan Sibert left the Buckeyes two years ago and transferred to Dayton. As for the in-state rivalry, Craft had no time for questions about what the loss to Dayton meant. “Sorry, I have zero thoughts on that right now,” he replied. “I’m upset at the way we played this game,and the way we didn’t take the opportunity and make the most of it.” Miller was antsy right up to the final buzzer, particularly with the ball in Craft’s hands on the Buckeyes final possession. “I thought it was going in,” Miller added, referring to Craft’s miss at the buzzer. “I’ve watched those guys win that game 1,000 times. He’s a bulldozer with the ball. He got it down there in about three dribbles and got a good look. And it ended up rimming out. And we got lucky today.” After falling behind 43-35 with 13:37 remaining, Ohio State capitalized on four Dayton turnovers to go on a 10-0 run capped by Thompson’s rebound of Craft’s miss with 10:23 remaining. Neither team was capable of pulling away after that. There was very little separating the
teams during a first half that had seven lead changes and ended with Dayton ahead 33-30. Matt Kavanaugh was the difference as the Buckeyes defense had difficulty containing him in the paint. Kavanaugh scored all his nine points in the first 20 minutes and picked up the slack on offense after Sibert was forced to sit for seven minutes in after picking up his second foul. EAST REGIONAL HARVARD 61, CINCINNATI 57 SPOKANE, Wash. — Siyani Chambers scored 11 points, including five straight in the final 2 minutes, and 12th-seeded Harvard won its second NCAA tournament game in history, upsetting fifth-seeded Cincinnati 61-57 on Thursday in the East Regional. Wesley Saunders led the Crimson (274) with 12 points as Harvard pulled off an upset for the second straight year. Last year, Harvard upset New Mexico as a 14 seed. The Crimson became the first Ivy League school with NCAA tournament wins in consecutive years since Princeton in 1983-84. Harvard never trailed after the opening moments. They played with confidence and scrap against the Bearcats, who shared the American Athletic Conference regular season title. Sean Kilpatrick led Cincinnati (27-7) with 18 points but the Bearcats failed to win a tournament game for the second straight year. See NCAA, page 7
Scott off to a record start at Bay Hill
Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. — Masters champion Adam Scott was feeling ill when he arrived at Bay Hill. One majestic round with the putter Thursday made him feel a lot better. Scott made five putts from about 20 feet or longer, two of them for eagle and one of them from off the green for birdie, and matched the course record with a 10-under 62 to build a 3-shot lead in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The conditions were close to perfect. So was his work on the greens. “I made a lot of putts today and a lot of putts from considerable length,” Scott said. “I hit a lot of nice shots, too, but it wasn’t like I was hitting it 4 feet. I had a round like this in Australia at the end of last year — in the first six holes, I didn’t hit it outside 5 feet. There’s a lot of different ways to get the ball in the hole. But it’s good for the confidence. It’s what I wanted. I sat in here yesterday and said I’d like to make some birdies and build the confidence. And today is a good start to that.” Ryo Ishikawa, who uses day.

Innisbrook but decided to mix it up. And he does have some experience on the bag. His caddie is Steve Williams, who worked for Woods in six of the eight Bay Hill wins. Even more surprising, though, is that Scott told reporters he was coping with flu-like symptoms and still doesn’t feel completely healthy. “It’s hard to say that I’m sick,” Scott said with a smile. “I feel actually better now than when I woke up. Just a bit under the weather. I can’t complain.” Scott is a believer in the adage, “Beware the injured golfer.” He lowered his expectations, concerned himself only with the next shot and was more concerned with his energy than feeling any nerves. It didn’t take long for him to realize it was going to be a special day, starting with a 20-foot birdie putt on the 10th to start his round. He got up and down from a bunker on the par-5 12th for birdie, made a 25-foot birdie putt on the 14th, and then rolled one in from 30 feet on the 15th from a collection area right of the green.
Bengals sign QB Campbell to be backup
Associated Press CINCINNATI — The Bengals signed quarterback Jason Campbell to be Andy Dalton’s backup on Thursday, a move that brings the franchise full circle in several ways. Campbell’s broken collarbone with the Raiders midway through the 2011 season had deep reverberations in Cincinnati. The injury prompted then-Raiders coach Hue Jackson to lobby for a trade with the Bengals, who sent them Carson Palmer for a first-round pick and a conditional secondround pick. Palmer was holding out, saying he’d never play again for the Bengals. Bengals’ owner Mike Brown was inclined to keep Palmer and make him sit out. The generous offer from Oakland forced him to reconsider. The Raiders got the trade but failed to reach the playoffs, Jackson was fired and Campbell moved on to Chicago. Jackson was rehired as an assistant in Cincinnati and was elevated to offensive coordinator when Jay Gruden left for Washington after last season. Campbell’s familiarity with Jackson was attractive to both the quarterback and the Bengals, who decided to sign their third backup in the last three years. “He reached out to me but he didn’t want to be the forefront guy that was pushing this,” Campbell said. “He wanted the other coaches to make sure they were on board to make the right decision. “I came in for a visit and was able to connect and I liked everything and the direction it was going in.” Campbell started his 9-year career Fitzpatrick is a 9-year NFL veteran with Washington.

RPM has banner day with a pair of top-5s
Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. — In 75 races as teammates, Aric Almirola and Marcos Ambrose had never before run in the top five together. They finally broke through at Bristol Motor Speedway, where Richard Petty Motorsports scored its best overall day as an organization in years. Almirola finished a career-best third at Bristol, while Ambrose was fifth. It marked the first time since Almirola moved into Petty’s iconic No. 43 Sprint Cup seat in 2012 that both drivers finished in the top five in the same race. Now they had to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., looking for another big finish. “Last week gave our team a lot of momentum going into this weekend,” Almirola said. “It showed that all of our hard work and all the investment from our partners is paying off. We have shown speed everywhere we’ve gone this year, we just haven’t seen the results to prove it. We did just that last week.” For Ambrose, his finish at Bristol was his first top-5 since Bristol in August 2012. Last season was a disappointing year of only six top-10 finishes for the Australian. But California will be a different animal. “We have a lot of confidence that we can continue this level of performance,” Ambrose said. “California is a tough track, really fast with a lot of grooves, but we’re ready to step it up there and get a good finish. We haven’t had the results we have wanted there but we’ve put in work with these new rules to get better. I know the guys will be busy this weekend so we get the best car possible for Sunday.” In eight previous starts at Fontana, Ambrose has yet to finish on the lead lap. His best finish was 21st in 2012 and his average finish is 28th. Almirola was a career-best 14th at Fontana last year — but it raised his average finish to 29th in six career starts. But he likes the way his team has started the year and feels good headed to California. “We’ve had a lot of positives,” he added. “We didn’t run very good at Vegas. We struggled really bad there but at Daytona we had a great car. We went up and led some laps and had a really strong car there. At Phoenix, we had a good car and ran in the top-10 all day and then those last couple of restarts we didn’t have very good restarts and I finished 14th or 15th, so we’ve had good cars, we’ve had good runs. This is how we expect to run. “We were not very happy with how our season went last year and we’ve made a lot of changes and all of those changes seem to have been positive.” MOONLIGHTERS: Much has been made of the stars of the Sprint Cup Series racing in the lower levels, largely because of Kyle Busch’s recent domination. Busch won a combined 17 races in the Nationwide and Truck Series last season. This year, he’s won two of the first four Nationwide races and the season-opening Truck Series race at Daytona. Brad Keselowski also has a Nationwide win. NASCAR understands that many fans are unhappy with the Cup stars dominating in the lower series and said recently they are considering limiting how many races full-time Cup drivers can run in the future. Kyle Larson, who moved from Nationwide to Cup this season, said he’d be disappointed by such a rule. “I think the Nationwide regulars like Cup guys running with them. I know I do,” he explained. “Whenever I’m out there with guys like Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, I can see them in front of me, I’m learning a lot from them. I like it. I think it’s good for the development-side of the young drivers ‘cause it is a development series for those kids. I think it’s a good thing for NASCAR to have the Cup guys in there because it’s just going to make their series more competitive when those young guys move up.” Larson spent only one season in Nationwide. He scored 17 top-10 finishes, was eighth in the final standings and used last year as a springboard into a Sprint Cup Series ride.

As they did in the first half, the Patriots turned to Cook to keep them in the game. The lefty-shooting senior scored in the low block, then, after a Bolenbaugh bucket, added an 18-foot jumper that brought Tri-Village back to within four. That’s when Bolenbaugh broke the collective backs of the Patriots. “At halftime, coaches were telling us to pump fake, because they were leaving their feet a lot,” Bolenbaugh explained. “I don’t really know what happened to it (the shot) but I just pump-faked and I saw him jump, so I went into him. There was a lot of luck involved in that one, I just kind of threw it up there.” “It did, it brought me back to BG, against Wayne Trace, when that happened and I was on the floor and celebrating. Teammates were there to pick me up. It’s an amazing feeling.” The Knights wound up hitting 22-of-27 free throws for the game. Though Helm, the co-Player of the Year in Division IV, was held without a
field goal, he converted all 10 of his free throw attempts including 6-for-6 over the final 1:05 of the game. Crestview finished the game 14-for47 (37.8 percent) from the floor while Tri-Village hit on 18-of-41 (43.9 percent) of its attempts. The Patriots were held 23 points below their season average and Colton Linkous, who came into the game averaging 19.8 points per night and shooting 48 percent from 3-point range was held to just eight points on 2-of-5 shooting. A large portion of the credit for that goes to Etzler, who finished with 13 points and five steals. “Our team defense is pretty good,” Best added. “But we have some individual guys that, philosophically, do a few different things. When we assign a guy to lock a guy lock, he (Etzler) is the guy that can do it. He’s done that all through the tournament and I’m sure we’ll try to find somebody that he can do that against on Saturday, too.” Yet another co-Player of the Year awaits when Crestview takes on Aquinas. Chances are good Etzler will draw that assignment one more time.

——— Associated Press DIVISION IV Louisville St. Thomas Aquinas 54, Canal Winchester Harvest Prep 41 COLUMBUS (AP) — Jacob Paul led three Louisville St. Thomas Aquinas players in double figures with 15 points and the Knights continued their late-season surge with a 54-41 win Thursday against Canal Winchester Harvest Prep in a Division IV boys state semifinal at Ohio State’s Value City Arena. The Knights (18-11) have won nine straight and will play for their first state championship in Saturday’s title game. Harvest Prep (26-2), ranked No. 2 in
the final Associated Press regular-season poll, had a 20-game winning streak stopped. The Warriors trailed 39-35 after three quarters but made two field goals in the fourth when Paul scored nine points, seven from the foul line. Austin Hill and Anthony Moeglin scored 11 points for Aquinas. David Dennis Jr. had 12 points for Harvest Prep. DIVISION II Columbus Bishop Watterson 56, Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary 51 Matt Lehman’s four throws in the final 38 seconds helped defending champion Columbus Bishop Watterson stave a late rally by Akron St. VincentSt. Mary for a 56-51 victory Thursday in a Division II boys state semifinal at Ohio State’s Value City Arena. The Eagles (26-2) advanced to play Norwalk for their second state championship in Saturday’s title game. St. Vincent-St. Mary (19-10), who lost the 2013 title game 55-52 to Watterson, went on an 18-4 run to tie at 44-44 with six minutes to play but never took the lead. Lehman had 19 points and his free
throws helped Watterson, No.2 in the Associated Press final regular-season poll, build a 7-point lead in the final minute. Jalen Hudson led St. VincentSt. Mary with 18 points. Norwalk 72, Dayton Thurgood Marshall 64 Jeff Thomas scored 15 of his 20 points in the second half and Ben Haraway also scored 20 points as Norwalk defeated Dayton Thurgood Marshall 72-64 Thursday in a Division II boys state semifinal at Ohio State’s Value City Arena. The Truckers (28-1), ranked second in the final Associated Press regularseason poll, advanced to play for their first state championship in Saturday’s title game. Thomas, a first-team all-stater, scored 12 points in the third quarter as Norwalk broke a 30-30 halftime tie to take a 52-47 lead into the final quarter. He then hit a 3-pointer with 3:33 left in the game to give Norwalk a 59-57 advantage it never lost. Rachaun Martin, a second-team AllOhio selection, led Thurgood Marshall (23-6) with 15 points.

MICHIGAN ST. 93, DELAWARE 78 SPOKANE, Wash. — Adreian Payne scored a career-high 41 points to get Michigan State off to a solid start in the NCAA tournament. Payne, a 6-10 senior, scored 12 straight points in the first half to help the fourth-seeded Spartans (27-8) to an 18-point lead. He set an NCAA tournament record by making all 17 of his free throws and broke the program’s tournament scoring record, set previously by Greg Kelser in 1979. Devon Saddler had 21 points and Davon Usher added 20 for the 13th-seeded Blue Hens (25-10). Travis Trice scored 13 of his 19 points in the second half for the Spartans. UCONN 89, SAINT JOSEPH’S 81, OT BUFFALO, N.Y. — Shabazz Napier shook off a miss at the second-half buzzer to score nine of his 24 points in overtime and lead seventhseeded Connecticut to a win over Saint Joseph’s in the second round of the NCAA tournament. DeAndre Daniels scored 18 while freshman center Amida Brimah forced overtime by completing a 3-point play in the final minute for UConn (27-8). The Huskies won their first tournament game under coach Kevin Ollie, who took over two years ago after Jim Calhoun stepped down due to health issues. With the game tied at 70 entering overtime, Daniels opened the scoring by completed a 3-point play with 3:47 left during a 5-minute period the Huskies never trailed. Langston Galloway scored 25 points for Saint Joseph’s (24-10). The Hawks wore down because of a lack of depth, then lost top forward Halil Kanacevic, who fouled out early into overtime. SOUTH REGIONAL SYRACUSE 77, W. MICHIGAN 53 BUFFALO, N.Y. — Syracuse’s backcourt of Trevor Cooney and Tyler Ennis combined for 34 points and the Orange defense clamped down. Western Michigan (23-10), the Mid-American Conference champion, had won 14 out of 16 games and was in the NCAA tournament for the
first time in a decade. The third-seeded Orange (28-5) forced 11 turnovers in the opening half and scored 13 points off them in running out to a double-digit lead before the midpoint of the period. Cooney led the Orange with 18 points, hitting 4-of-8 from beyond the arc, and Ennis had 16 points and six assists with one turnover. The Orange used an 18-4 spurt over 10 minutes to take control and led 40-21 at halftime. Shayne Whittington and Tucker Haymond led Western Michigan with 11 points apiece. PITTSBURGH 77, COLORADO 48 ORLANDO, Fla. — Talib Zanna scored 16 of his 18 points in the opening half, helping ninthseeded Pittsburgh build a 28-point lead. The Panthers (26-9) shot 51 percent and played stifling defense. Colorado (23-12) was eager to make amends for an early exit from the tournament a year ago but had no answers for the 6-9 Zanna. The Pitt center made six out of seven shots in the first half and the Panthers didn’t have any difficulty finishing off the overwhelmed Buffaloes. Josh Scott led the eighth-seeded Buffaloes with 14 points; however, Colorado couldn’t overcome a subpar performance from Askia Booker. FLORIDA 67, ALBANY 55 ORLANDO, Fla. — Dorian Finney-Smith scored 16 points, most of them on dunks, and top-seeded Florida used a second-half surge to beat 16th-seeded Albany. The Gators (33-2) showed some vulnerability, though, while extending their school-record winning streak to 27 games. Coach Billy Donovan’s team sleepwalked through the first half, swapping the lead back and forth with the pesky Great Danes, but Florida’s bench provided a much-needed spark. Finney-Smith, the Southeastern Conference’s sixth man of the year, was 6-of-10 shooting. Freshman guard Kasey Hill, who wasn’t sure he would be able to play because of turf toe, chipped in 10 points. Patric Young finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds, his first double-double of the season. Casey Prather (16 points) and Scottie Wilbekin
(10) also reached double figures for Florida. DJ Evans led Albany (19-15) with 21 points and seven rebounds. WEST REGIONAL WISCONSIN 75, AMERICAN 35 MILWAUKEE — Ben Brust scored 17 points and second-seeded Wisconsin devastated American with a 22-5 run to close the first half. The second-seeded Badgers (27-7) recovered from a brief first-half rut and 7-point deficit to extinguish the dreams of the 15th-seeded Eagles (20-13). After Wisconsin was ousted in the first round last year as a No. 5 seed, Brust made sure his senior season didn’t end the same way. He attacked the glass for baskets on consecutive possessions, ending with a 3-point play with 3:33 left in the first half to give Wisconsin a 23-20 lead. The Badgers shot 57 percent from the field in the second half. John Schoof had 11 points for American. OREGON 87, BYU 68 MILWAUKEE — Elgin Cook scored a career-high 23 points for seventh-seeded Oregon. Joseph Young had 19 points for the Ducks (24-9), who had to stage a big comeback to beat the Cougars 100-96 in overtime in December. There was no comeback needed this time, with Oregon turning away every charge by BYU in the second half. Cook, a native of Milwaukee, is the son of former NBA All-Star Alvin Robertson. Tyler Haws scored 19 points for 10th-seeded BYU (23-12), which returned to the NCAA tournament after a one-year absence. Matt Carlino added 15 points. NORTH DAKOTASTATE 80, OKLAHOMA 75, OT SPOKANE, Wash. — Lawrence Alexander hit a 3-pointer with 11 seconds left to force overtime and freshman Carlin Dupree scored four points in the final 75 seconds as No. 12 seed North Dakota State knocked off Oklahoma. The Bison (26-6) picked up their first NCAA tournament win by rallying in the final minute and then outlasting the No. 5 seed Sooners in overtime. Alexander finished with a career-high
28 points but it’ll be his falling-down, fist-pumping celebration after the tying 3-pointer that will be replayed in Fargo for years. Dupree came on in the closing seconds of overtime after Taylor Braun fouled out. He hit two free throws and scored on a difficult baseline leaner with 41 seconds left. Cameron Clark led Oklahoma (23-10) with 25 points. MIDWEST REGIONAL MICHIGAN 57, WOFFORD 40 MILWAUKEE — Glenn Robinson III scored 14 points and second-seeded Michigan started their quest for a second straight trip to the Final Four by beating 15th-seeded Wofford. The Wolverines (26-8) capitalized on their decisive edge in athleticism on the undersized Terriers (20-13) but still had some nervous moments after missing 15 of their first 18 shots in the second half. Karl Cochran’s 3-pointer with 9:25 left whittled an 18-point deficit to 40-33. But the Wolverines regrouped and Caris LeVert’s 3 with 4:17 left gave them a 15-point lead to deflate Wofford’s dreams of an upset. Cochran finished with 17 points, while Robinson hit big shots in the same arena his father played in as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1990s. SAINT LOUIS 83, N.C. STATE 80, OT ORLANDO, Fla. — Rob Loe scored 22 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, helping St. Louis wipe out a late 14-point deficit and pull away in overtime to beat North Carolina State. Jordair Jett overcame a slow start to score 18, doing most of his damage while the fifthseeded Billikens (27-6) were making their comeback in the last five minutes of regulation. Both teams shot horribly from the freethrow line, with Saint Louis shooting 12-for-26 and No. 12 seed NC State shooting 20-for-37. T.J. Warren scored 28 points for the Wolfpack (22-14) but the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year made just six of his 14 free throw attempts, including one that could have tied it in the final minute of OT.

Veterans’ unemployment edges down but remains high
By TOM RAUM Associated Press WASHINGTON — The unemployment rate for veterans who served since 2001 dipped slightly in 2013 to 9 percent, the Labor Department reported Thursday. That’s down from 9.9 percent the year before, but well above overall civilian unemployment levels of around 7 percent over the same period. The youngest veterans, aged 18-24, posted an ultra-high jobless rate of 21.4 percent, said the agency’s Bureau of Labor Statistics in its annual review of unemployment among former members of the armed services. The report documents that, despite training and job skills acquired in the military, young veterans of recent conflicts have generally encountered more difficulty in finding work than civilians. “Veterans have the skills that employers are looking for. They make our nation’s workforce more productive, our companies more profitable and our economy more competitive. Smart businesses recruit veterans because it’s in their self-interest, because they know it’s a sound investment in their bottom line,” Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez said in a statement. Veterans with the highest jobless numbers served in the military after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. For all veterans, the unemployment rate was 6.6 percent in 2013, down from 7 percent the year before. That’s not markedly different from overall unemployment levels in the United States, which averaged 7.4 percent in 2013 and finished the year with a 6.7 percent rate for December. The most recent overall unemployment rate was also 6.7 percent in February 2014. “Those in the youngest group are experiencing unemployment at a higher rate than their nonveteran peers,” said Teresa W. Gerton, deputy assistant secretary for policy in the department’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service. “But their labor participation rates are higher. Their attachment to the labor force is stronger. They’re out there trying to get a job,” Gerton said in an interview. She suggested that the picture will get brighter “as the economy continues to recover.”
US, Europe sanctions target Putin’s inner circle
By JULIE PACE Associated Press WASHINGTON — Raising the stakes in an East-West showdown over Ukraine, President Barack Obama on Thursday ordered economic sanctions against nearly two dozen members of Vladimir Putin’s inner circle and a major Russian bank that provides them support. He warned that more sweeping penalties against Russia’s robust energy sector could follow. Russia retaliated swiftly, imposing entry bans on American lawmakers and senior White House officials, among them Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer and the president’s deputy national security adviser, Ben Rhodes. It’s far more than just a U.S.-Russia dispute. European Union leaders said they, too, were ready to close in on Putin’s associates, announcing sanctions on 12 more people linked to Russia’s annexation of
Chew on this: Gum loses its pop
NEW YORK (AP) — Gum seems as appealing as that sticky wad on the bottom of a shoe these days. It’s not that Americans don’t ever enjoy a stick of Trident or Orbit, the two most popular brands. They just aren’t as crazy about chomping away on the stuff as they once were, with U.S. sales tumbling 11 percent over the past four years. No one in the industry can pinpoint a single factor that’s causing the decline — the theories include an unwillingness to shell out $2 or more for a pack in the bad economy or that advertising veered too far from underlining gum’s cavityfighting benefits. But the biggest reason may be that people simply have more to chew on. From designer mints to fruit chews, candy companies have invented plenty of other ways to get a sugar fix or battle bad breath and anxiety. The alternatives don’t come with gum’s unpleasant characteristics either, like the question of whether
the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine. That brought the number of people facing EU sanctions to 33. The Western aim is twofold: to ratchet up the costs for Putin’s annexation of Crimea and to head off any further Russian military inroads into Ukraine. “The world is watching with grave concern as Russia has positioned its military in a way that could lead to further incursions into southern and eastern Ukraine,” Obama said, speaking from the South Lawn of the White House.
Gerton said there has always been a transition period as people leave the military and join the civilian workforce. “We work closely with a broad spectrum of employers” to help shorten that transition time, she said. “They understand the value that veterans bring.” The economy is still digging out from the 2007-2009 Great Recession and it will likely be some time before overall unemployment returns to pre-recessionary levels of 5 percent or lower. Heidi Shierholz, an economist with the labor-oriented Economic Policy Institute, said the new report documents a well-known trend: “We all know that young workers have higher unemployment rates. It doesn’t mean they’re worse off as a group.”

to spit out or gulp the remains. They’re also less likely to annoy parents, co-workers or romantic interests. “You talk to someone and they’re just chomping on gum,” said Matt Smith, a 46-year-old who lives Albany, N.Y. and hates gum so much he refers to it only by its first letter. “If you substitute gum for any other food, like mashed potatoes, would you find that acceptable? It’s disgusting.” The gum chewing habit dates as far back as the ancient Greeks but arrived in the U.S. in its modern form in the 1860s, according to Mars Inc., the No. 1 player in the market with its Wrigley unit. Over the years, gum makers positioned it as a way to “Kiss a Little Longer” in the famous Big Red jingle, quit smoking, curb cravings or just make the chewer happier. Catchy slogans or characters included the “Doublemint Twins” and Orbit’s blonde spokeswoman who ends commercials with “Dirty mouth? Clean it up.”
But Yardley was optimistic that the searchers will find the objects. “We will find it — I’m sure about that piece of it. The only reason we wouldn’t find it was that it has sunk,” he said of the large unidentified object spotted by the satellite. “I’ve been on these missions before when it’s taken a few days to come across it,” he said. Warren Truss, Australia’s acting prime minister while Tony Abbott is overseas, told Australian Broadcasting Corp. that weather conditions in the search area were poor and may get worse. “And so clearly this is a very, very difficult and challenging search. Weather conditions are not particularly good and risk that they may deteriorate,” Truss said. One of the objects on the satellite image was 24 meters (almost 80 feet) long and the other was 5 meters (15 feet). There could be other objects in the area, a four-hour flight from Australia, John Young, manager of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s emergency response division, said Thursday. “This is a lead, it’s probably the best lead we have right now,” Young said. He cautioned that the objects could be seaborne debris along a shipping route where containers can fall off cargo
vessels, although the larger object is longer than a standard container. Truss said officials were checking more satellite images with stronger resolution to find out how far the objects might have shifted since the initial images were captured. “They will have moved because of tides and wind and the like, so the search area is quite broad,” Truss said, adding marker buoys were dropped to help get a better understanding of what drift is likely to have occurred. The Norwegian cargo vessel Hoegh St. Petersburg, with a Filipino crew of 20, arrived in the area and used lights to search overnight before resuming a visual search today, said Ingar Skiaker of Hoegh Autoliners, speaking to reporters in Oslo. The Norwegian ship, which transports cars, was on its way from South Africa to Australia, he said. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said another commercial ship and an Australian navy vessel were also en route to the search area. Three Chinese naval ships were heading to the area. China’s search and rescue agency also said it had asked the country’s Oceanic Administration to dispatch the icebreaker Xue Long (the Snow Dragon), which was in Perth following a voyage to the Antarctica in January, to take part in the search.
