Ohio man faces sentencing in human bone thefts
ATHENS (AP) — Sentencing is scheduled Tuesday for an Ohio man on charges related to the theft and sale of human skulls and skeletons. The Athens Messenger reports (http://bit.ly/1shuzMZ ) that the attorney for 29-year-old former lab assistant Weston Moquin is asking a federal judge to spare him from prison time. Attorney Keith Yeazel stated in a recent court filing that he is urging probation. “He is a first-time, non-violent felony offender who essentially committed thefts to support his drug habit,” Yeazel stated. He said Moquin needs treatment, and also to be able to work to pay restitution. “If drug addiction creates a propensity towards crime, then it follows that drug rehabilitation goes a long way toward preventing recidivism,” Yeazel wrote. He said otherwise, a short sentence “is sufficient to impress on Mr. Moquin the seriousness of his crimes and deter him from re-offending.” Court documents show that thefts from Ohio University in 2011-12 included human bones, other preserved human remains, autopsy saws and other items the university had as teaching aids. The records state Moquin reaped nearly $85,000 from online sales. Most of the items were shipped to buyers in California, Utah and Oregon. He has pleaded guilty to interstate transportation of stolen goods and to theft from a program receiving federal funds.

The dirt on organic recycling
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer email@example.com Composting is nature’s way of recycling leaves, grass clippings, kitchen scraps and other organic wastes by converting them into a nutrient rich soil amendment called compost. By composting at home, people can enjoy the financial benefits of free soil enrichment, reduce the amount of solid wastes sent to landfills and conserve resources. Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Media Relations representative Dina Pierce said in 2012, the total yard waste accepted by all composting facilities in Ohio was 843,092 tons. “Ohio composting facilities also accepted 1,031,011 tons of compostable wastes including manures, food scraps and bulking agents,” Pierce said. “They also distributed 971,784 tons of compost product including compost made from yard waste, manures, food scraps and other bulking agents.” She said these numbers are based on monthly totals reported and compostable wastes received are rarely distributed as compost product in the same month received. Given the variations in the length of time for the composting process, it can be assumed that some of the compost product distributed for any one year was made from materials received the prior year. Director of Van Wert Solid Waste Management George Brake said society has come a long way since the 60s and 70s, when the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland was so toxic that bacteria could not live in it and was so polluted that it caught fire. Now, those same areas are beautiful scenic waterways. “That’s when President Richard Nixon formed the Environmental Protection Agency and Earth Day observance began,” Brake said. The Van Wert facility operates as a Class IV composting facility and only accepts source-separated yard waste as feedstock.

Source-separated means yard waste that has been separated at the point of generation or collection from other solid waste. Yard waste includes brush, garden waste, grass clippings, holiday trees, leaves, pruning from trees or shrubs, tree trunks and small stumps. Brake said each year the facility accepts and processes two to three thousand tons of source-separated yard waste for anyone within driving distance. He said they do not check licence plates. “We accept, process and give back to the public the finished products including compost, mulch and fire wood, which are made available to anyone within driving distance for free,” Brake detailed. He added that some compost and mulches are refined further and cost extra. There are also charges for use of equipment and the manpower to load materials. Pierce said home and commercial organic composting saves landfill waste by getting reusable materials out of the waste stream. “When people compost at home, it makes good nutrient rich soils for use on gardens,” Pierce said. Brake said one of the most important things to remember when composting at home is to be courteous to neighbors. “Be careful of what you put in the pile because it will smell and you don’t want it to become a nuisance or eyesore,” he added. For people who want to begin composting at home, the OEPA website and brochure “Composting: Recycle the Natural Way” are great sources of information on getting started. The EPA suggests that compost can be made in just two or three weeks during the summer if the leaves and other materials are finely ground or shredded, turned frequently to provide good aeration and supplied with sufficient moisture and nitrogen. The usual method is to turn the pile once a week for two or three weeks, then once a month until the compost is ready to use. See COMPOSTING, page 9
Feds failed to inspect higher-risk oil wells
BY HOPE YEN Associated Press WASHINGTON — The government has failed to inspect thousands of oil and gas wells it considers potentially high risks for water contamination and other environmental damage, congressional investigators say. The report, obtained by The Associated Press before its public release, highlights substantial gaps in oversight by the agency that manages oil and gas development on federal and Indian lands. Investigators said weak control by the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management resulted from policies based on outdated science and from incomplete monitoring data. The findings from the Government Accountability Office come amid an energy boom in the country and the increasing use of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. That process involves pumping huge volumes of water, sand and chemicals underground to split open rocks to allow oil and gas to flow. It has produced major economic benefits, but also raised fears that the chemicals could spread to water supplies. The audit also said the BLM did not coordinate effectively with state regulators in New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma and Utah. The bureau has become a symbol of federal overreach to industry groups opposed to government regulations related to oil and gas drilling. Environmental groups say the Obama administration needs to do more to guard against environmental damage. In the coming months, the administration is expected to issue rules on fracking and methane gas emissions. The report said the agency “cannot accurately and efficiently identify whether federal and Indian resources are properly protected or that federal and Indian resources are at risk of being extracted without agency approval.” In response to the report, Tommy Beaudreau, a principal deputy assistant interior secretary, wrote that he generally agreed with the recommendations for improved state coordination and updated regulations. The report makes clear in many instances that the BLM’s failure to inspect high-priority oil and gas wells is due to limited money and staff. BLM officials said they were in the process of updating several of its policies later this year. Investigators reviewed 14 states in full or part: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming. In Ohio, Pennsylvania and elsewhere, fracking has become increasingly prevalent. See WELLS, page 9

Official warns of home improvement scams
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s attorney general is warning consumers about spring home improvement scams. Attorney General Mike DeWine says warmer weather brings more door-to-door home improvement sales. He says consumers should be cautious and research the reputation of a business and individual contractor before agreeing to anything. DeWine says consumers should check with his office and the Better Business Bureau for any complaints against the company. Ohioans also can search the Internet and ask contractors for references from past customers. DeWine says consumers have a three-day right to cancel most door-to-door sales and businesses must give written notice of that right. The Ohio Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Section has filed five home improvement lawsuits so far this year against contractors believed to be violating the state’s Consumer Sales Practices Act.
Gathering focuses on Tree-eating beetles preserving state’s courthouses disrupt nature preserve
COLUMBUS (AP) — A small, sad crowd stood in a cold rain two years ago as heavy machinery demolished the Seneca County Courthouse in the northern Ohio town of Tiffin, a once-grand structure that dated back to 1884 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. County leaders decided to spend around $400,000 to remove the crumbling structure from the city streetscape rather than continue efforts to fundraise the $8 million or so needed to make it usable again. This week, county officials from around the state are gathering in Columbus with historic preservationists, judges, architects and others to try to keep that from happening again. Participants in the Ohio Courthouses Symposium will share ideas for preserving the state’s many historically significant countyseat edifices — mainly how to find the money to rehabilitate and maintain the old government buildings. “Historically, courthouses have been the focal point for all county residents, with bad experiences and with good experiences,” says Doug Spencer, an Auglaize County commissioner who helped oversee a recent $9 million renovation of the 1894 courthouse in Wapakoneta, paid for with sales tax revenue and federal stimulus money. “It’s something that people in our county identify with, and it’s something people in our county relate to.” Ohio has 69 county courthouses on the National Register of Historic Places, many of them built between the Civil War and the beginning of World War I, according to the Ohio Historical Society. Few states have more courthouses recognized as historic treasures. Courthouses were such a symbol of identity and progress at the time that counties often competed to build the biggest and most ornate buildings, says Richard Guy Wilson, an architectural historian at the University of Virginia. “That was a big deal because it said quite a bit about the aspirations of the town or county,” Wilson says. To be listed in the National Register of Historic Places, they need to be at least 50 years old and have historical significance because of period architecture or other factors. Many of the aging buildings require expensive roof and masonry work and need interiors updated to fit the security and technological needs of modern government. Every Ohio county with a courthouse on the National Register is still using it for some aspect of county government. “There are some counties that have great success stories — and we ought to be shouting those from the rooftops,” says Todd Kleismit of the Historical Society. “But there are a number of counties in Ohio that are really wrestling with these issues, from funding to maintenance and technology.” Financing courthouse projects can require some creative thinking, officials say. Texas and Arkansas, for example, have programs to help counties maintain their courthouses. Ohio doesn’t. In northern Ohio’s Wyandot County, voters last fall passed a bond issue that will generate some $2.25 million to repair and restore the roof, gutters and domes of the 1899 sandstone courthouse, whose stately courtroom was used for the 1994 film “The Shawshank Redemption.” Leaders in Crawford County are pondering a $3.6 million price tag to fix the roof and clock tower of their Greek Revival courthouse in northern Ohio, built in the 1850s. A judge in Coshocton County in central Ohio hiked the court user fees to raise money to repair and maintain the 1875 red brick courthouse. In Auglaize County, in western Ohio, the courthouse project involved restoring stained glass and uncovering a 12-by-12foot mural of a Civil War battle scene in one courtroom. Fortunately for preservationists, it’s rare for Ohio counties to tear down historically significant courthouses. Near as anyone can tell, it’s only happened a few times. Spencer, the Auglaize County commissioner, says there was no taxpayer pushback on the decision to rehab the courthouse when a courts building could have been built for much less. SHILOH (AP) — A tree-eating beetle has destroyed hundreds of ash trees in a northern Ohio nature preserve, state officials say. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources, working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, has cut down some of the ash trees infested with the emerald ash borer in the Fowler Woods State Nature Preserve. But officials decided to let many dead or dying trees in the preserve east of Shiloh in Richland County fall down naturally, the Mansfield News Journal reported. “Cutting down all those towering trees could change the feel of the area,” said Eileen Corson, a spokeswoman for the state department. The ash borer devastation already has changed the look of the preserve. Many ash trees have been cut down, leaving the woods littered with scattered segments of ash trunk. That, in turn, has opened new areas of the typically shaded forest to sunlight. The department also has closed most of a popular 1.2-mile trail in the preserve to prevent safety hazards from falling tree trunks and limbs and says the disruptions could continue at the 168-acre preserve for years. But Corson said forestry officials aren’t concerned about the emerald ash borer spreading further in the preserve or onto adjacent property. “It’s already moved through that area and is now in Columbus,” she said. The beetle that arrived in Ohio 10 years ago — a year after appearing in southeastern Michigan and the Canadian province of Ontario — has a limited diet. It eats the inner bark of ash trees, but doesn’t finish until the tree is dead. The white ash, the best-known ash species in Ohio, can grow to 80 feet high and normally had a lifespan of 260 years. But foresters don’t expect the trees to survive Ohio’s ash borer infestation. Fowler Woods, which became one of the first nature preserves in Ohio in 1971, is home to 58 tree and shrub species and 212 different kinds of ferns and wildflowers.
Toledo bus agency fighting human trafficking
TOLEDO (AP) — Operators of Toledo’s public transit system say they will train drivers to spot and help out human trafficking victims. The Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority says it will take part in a public awareness campaign about human trafficking. It also wants to become a “safe haven” for victims. An official with the transit agency says drivers will be trained to offer victims a temporary refuge until authorities can be contacted. New signs on buses will tell people to notify drivers if they need help. Ohio officials announced earlier this year that the state would partner with libraries, highway rest areas, clinics and facilities overseen by state agencies to increase awareness about human trafficking.
Rare ‘mono mono’ newborn twins doing well in Akron
AKRON (AP) — Twin girls born with a rare condition in Ohio were breathing on their own and their mom said she and her husband were able to hold them on Mother’s Day. Sarah Thistlethwaite said babies Jillian and Jenna were removed from ventilators Sunday afternoon after they were able to breathe comfortably. She told The Associated Press that she and her husband Bill both held them for a while on Mother’s Day. “It’s just hard to put into words how amazing it feels to know the girls are OK,” she said. “It’s great to know that they’re doing so well, and being able to hold them.” The identical twin girls shared the same amniotic sac and placenta. Such births are called monoamniotic, or “mono mono,” and doctors say they occur in about one of every 10,000 pregnancies. They were born Friday at Akron General Medical Center, grasping each other’s hands when doctors lifted them up for their parents to see after delivery. Thistlethwaite told the Akron Beacon Journal that was “the best Mother’s Day present ever.” “They’re already best friends,” said Thistlethwaite, 32. “I can’t believe they were holding hands. That’s amazing.” Jenna was born first at 4 pounds, 2 ounces and 17 inches, with Jillian following 48 seconds later at 3 pounds, 13 ounces and 17.5 inches. They were moved temporarily to Akron Children’s Hospital because they needed breathing assistance. Thistlethwaite expects to be released from Akron General on Tuesday, while the girls will remain in the hospital two to four weeks. Dr. Melissa Mancuso helped deliver the twins, one of several amniotic pairs she has helped deliver in 11 years. She

said the twins are at risk during pregnancy of entanglement of umbilical cords, which can cause death. Another woman at Akron General is expected to give birth later this week to monoamniotic twins. Sarah and Bill Thistlethwaite, of Orrville, Ohio, have a son, Jaxon, whose first birthday was Jan. 27. That’s the day they also found out she was carrying twins. “All I could do was laugh,” said Bill, 35. They rushed to prepare their home for the twins, and Sarah was soon on bed rest. A middle school math teacher, she went into the hospital on March 14. “It’s hard, it really is,” she said of extended bed rest. “It was very mentally challenging knowing I have to sit here all day.” Besides television, books and “trashy gossip magazines,” she viewed YouTube to learn how to crochet baby hats.

Pain Doctor Discovers Blood FlowBusting Material Into ‘Miracle Socks’ for Diabetics and Foot Pain Sufferers! Breakthrough circulation-boosting fibers improve blood flow, relieve swelling,
boost oxygen flow, and eliminate foot fatigue - naturally in as little as 5 minutes!
Without Wearing BambusaTM sock After Wearing BambusaTM sock What part of your swollen, tired, or achy feet would you like to see ‘go-away’? If you suffer from poor circulation, injury, swelling or any condition that leaves your feet fatigued and sore, then read on to discover the breakthrough that can change your life. Good news comes in the form of a ‘pain-busting microfiber’ that is used to weave a circulation-boosting sock, called BambusaTM. Better Blood Flow The ‘miracle sock’ is made from a new, patented anion-technology that is weaved into every strand of thread used to make a BambusaTM sock. This special micro-fiber thread is made from revolutionary bamboo charcoal to stimulate blood flow and revitalize feet. When this material comes in contact with body-heat it is proven to release circulation-boosting ions. The 3D-weave technology used in the material has been compared to infrared light therapy to help revitalize stiff and sore muscles. The manufacturer, who also makes a back and wrist sleeve, says the material provides almost instant relief to any part of the body it touches, making it ideal for diabetics, athletes, inflammation, stiffness and swelling. Anne M. from California agrees. “Bambusa socks are absolutely the most comfortable socks I have ever worn! My feet are no longer fatigued!” Therapy Without A Prescription! When the socks were photographed using a thermographic imaging camera, results showed up to a 17% to 22% increase in blood flow. This helped to improve muscle oxygenation and decrease foot fatigue. The socks have been proven to provide extended relief from cold, swollen and fatigued feet. Doctor Recommended Pain specialist of 30 years, Dr. Jahner comments on the 3D-weave technology. “Infrared therapy has been used for years at medical clinics to treat vascular and circulatory conditions. Physical therapists use infrared therapy to speed recovery. Better blood flow equals less pain. This microfiber works much the same way.”
“Being Diabetic, I never had pain-free feet - UNTIL NOW!”

The infrared anions generated by the charcoal bamboo increase blood flow and deliver oxygen to the tissues. After wearing for only minutes there is an increase in temperature due to the increased blood flow, resulting in improved comfort and reduced swelling. Twenty minutes after using the anion-fiber infused socks, patient has better blood flow and less numbness. "Circulatory dysfunction affects MOST of the adult population in the United States. Heart Disease, Strokes and Diabetic conditions are at epidemic levels; anything that improves circulation improves cellular health and vitality. I use the Bambusa product myself and recommend it to my clients. It really works!” states Dr Jahner. Results in Minutes? John G. of California claims he felt immediate results with his tired, swollen feet. “Without exaggeration the relief was almost instantaneous. It is like a heating pad set to low and wrapped around my calf. I will be replacing my entire set of dress socks with these socks!” Relief for Tired, Swollen Feet BambusaTM socks are not a medical device or compression socks because they don’t restrict blood flow. Utilizing the special negativeanion technology, they comfortably increase blood flow and oxygen to tissues. “My feet felt wonderful, cool, and I never got that pins and needles feeling anymore. I love my BambusaTM socks,” says Nancy, from NJ. They are ideal for diabetics and those suffering from neuropathy or injury from repetitive use. BambusaTM socks can also bring comfort to tired legs within minutes of putting them on, energizing individuals who spend long hours on their feet. Goodbye to Pain and Numbness Marilyn H. has suffered persistent foot problems for years and noticed fast results. “The issue for me was persistent numbness in my toes - it was gone completely after a few days of wearing these socks! Being diabetic, I never had painfree feet - UNTIL NOW!” “I went out on the golf course for 18 holes of golf, and when I got home my feet weren’t swollen, they weren’t sweating and my feet didn’t hurt,” says Lou B. from New York. BENEFITS: • Increased blood flow and oxygen • Reduced swelling and pain • Anti-microbial • Wicks away moisture • Increased range of motion IDEAL FOR: • Neuropathy • Raynaud's Syndrome • Cramping • Cold Feet Tom from NJ reports, “I suffer from chronic foot cramps.

Lancers oust Jays from Division IV tourney
By LARRY HEIING DHI Correspondent email@example.com DELPHOS — The old saying states that records are cleared during the post-season and that everybody is starting over. So much for the wisdom of the old timers predicting the outcome of sectional baseball action pitting the Lincolnview Lancers against the St. John’s Blue Jays on Saturday at Stadium Park. The Lancers played like seasoned veterans behind a strong pitching performance behind by Eli Falmer for an 8-1 victory. “Eli pitched like we expect him to pitch,” said Lancer head coach Kevin Longstreth. “That’s why he’s our ace, our conference pitcher, the guy that gets it done in big games.” The game was played under ideal conditions for baseball under sunny blue skies and no wind blowing. The weather was a complete opposite from the night before at Versailles where an inch of rain fell in 10 minutes postponing the match-up for the Blue Jays. Senior Ben Wrasman led off the game for the Blue Jays with a double to the fence in the gap in right field. St. John’s was the visiting team and batted first despite the fact that the game was played in Delphos. Coach Ryan Warnecke moved another senior, Andy May, up in the order to the second spot and responded with a sacrifice bunt to advance Wrasman to third. After T.J. Hoersten walked, Austin Heiing grounded out to

(Delphos Herald/Randy Shellenbarger) short to plate Wrasman for the first run of the game. Lincolnview’s Austin Leeth led off the Lancers’ home half of the first inning with a walk. Dalton Schmersal cracked a double in the next at-bat to tie the score at one as Leeth scored from second base. Kyle Williams walked to put runners on first and second; the Lancers then attempted a double steal. Blue Jay catcher Buddy Jackson gunned down Schmersal attempting at third for the first out. With Williams on second, Derek Friesner hit a chopper to short that was bobbled as the runner scored to give the Lancers the lead. Jesse Ditto lead of the second inning with a double for St. John’s but could get no further as Falmer retired the next three Jays. Freshman Jacob Youngpeter retired Troy Patterson for the first out of the Lancer second inning. Cole Schmersal had a solid hit to left for a single and went to second on a balk. After a strikeout of Leeth, the Cole’s brother, Dalton, put runners on first and second with a walk. Another wild pitch pushed Cole Schmersal to third, then the umpires called a second balk on the young Blue Jay pitcher to score him. A frustrated Youngpeter got Williams to pop out to end the inning with the Lancers leading 3-1. Falmer continued to roll, getting Wrasman to ground out to begin the frame. May continued to excel in the second hole with a walk but was caught stealing by Lancer catcher Tyler Richey. Falmer’s fastball got Hoersten to strike out and the Jays went down quietly in the third. Lincolnview broke the game open in the third inning as the first three batters against Youngpeter reached safely. Hoersten was called in by Coach Warnecke to get out of the bases-loaded jam as Youngpeter moved to play first base. Richey’s sac fly plated one and back-to-back singles by Patterson and Cole Schmersal knocked in two more for a 5-run lead. Neither team scored in the fourth inning as St. Jays still trailed 6-1. St. John’s did make a threat in the fifth inning as May walked for the second time in a row and Hoersten’s single put runners on the corners with two outs. Falmer escaped the scoring threat, forcing a groundout by Heiing. Lincolnview wasn’t finished scoring yet as Richey and Cole Schmersal got aboard with 1-out singles. Leeth got a pair a runs batted in with a triple to left field and the Lancers took a comfortable 8-1 lead. See JAYS, page 8

Patrick surprise of Kansas with career-best run
Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Danica Patrick added another May moment to cherish. “Chicks rule, huh?” crew chief Tony Gibson playfully told her at Kansas. She may not have totally ruled but she put on a performance that recalled her better ones at the Indianapolis 500.

Kaymer holds on to win Players
Browns hit highs, lows, Bengals take QB A.J. McCarron, upgrade defense snag Manziel in NFL draft
By JOE KAY Associated Press CINCINNATI — A cornerback who sees a little of himself in Darrelle Revis. A tall defensive end who is similar to Michael Johnson, even sharing his jersey number. The Bengals think they’ve upgraded two important areas by getting cornerback Darqueze Dennard and defensive end Will Clarke in the draft. They also brought in a center who could start right away and a running back who could be pretty close behind. “You feel good about it at the end,” coach Marvin Lewis said. And for their most intriguing move, they formed a new throw-and-catch tandem. Get ready for A.J.-to-A.J. In practice, anyway. The Bengals got a big-game quarterback to back up Andy Dalton on Saturday, taking Alabama’s A.J. McCarron in the fifth round. The Heisman Trophy runner-up was still available for the 164th overall pick. McCarron’s history of winning national championships was enticing to the Bengals, who haven’t been able to win with Dalton in the playoffs. Still, the pecking order is set for the foreseeable future. It’ll be Dalton throwing to A.J. Green. “I’m confident in myself but at the same time, I know Andy’s the QB out there and I respect that,” McCarron said on a conference call. “All I want to do is go in and help us in whatever way I can. “If that means me holding the clipboard for a couple of years and giving Andy reports during the week and watching film with him and helping him in any way I can, I’m just ready to do it.” By TOM WITHERS Associated Press BEREA— The euphoria didn’t last long. Never does around here. For one glorious moment in the 3-day NFL draft and a few hours that followed, this long-suffering football town was at the center of the NFL universe. When Commissioner Roger Goodell stepped to the podium on the Radio City Music Hall stage in New York and announced that the Browns had made a trade and that Johnny Manziel — yes, Johnny College Football himself — was bringing his aerial magic show to Cleveland, the city rocked like it hadn’t in years. Grown men squealed like little girls. Twitter erupted. Phone lines at the Browns’ headquarters lit up as fans scrambled for season tickets. It was chaos. It was brief. Manziel’s selection, a pick the Browns hope finally ends their decade-long search for a franchise quarterback, was quickly eclipsed by an ESPN report that Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon failed another drug test and is facing at least a 1-year suspension by the league.

Frazier, Bailey lead Reds Panthers to 4-1 win over Rockies
Associated Press CINCINNATI — Aroldis Chapman let baseball know in his own way that his long journey back from an scary injury was complete: with a 100-mph strike to the game’s hottest hitter. Chapman made his first major league appearance since being hit above the eye by a line drive during spring training, striking out the side in the ninth with his 100-mph fastball to close out the Cincinnati Reds’ 4-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies 4-1 Sunday. “I am really happy to get out there for the first time,” said Chapman through a translator. “They are a good team but I was mentally prepared to face them. Facing those type of hitters make you feel better, than if you just break the ice.” Chapman walked Troy Tulowitzki, who started the day leading the National League with a .405 batting average, but had an easy inning. Todd Frazier hit his second 400-foot home run in three days to back Homer Bailey’s shutdown pitching as Cincinnati won the rubber match of its 3-game series with Colorado. Chapman was greeted by a standing ovation from the crowd of 33,143. He reached 100 mph with his first pitch and topped out at 102 mph in earning the save. Chapman had been out since being hit above the left eye by a line drive during a spring training game on March 19. Chapman was hit hard in his in his last two rehab starts in Louisville, allowing eight earned runs in one inning over the two-game stint. “As much as you want guys to treat those assignments like a normal game, they don’t always have the same focus,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “The reports we had said he was throwing the ball well. He made some big pitchers to get some good hitters out.” Skip Schumaker drove in two runs and the Reds capitalized on two Colorado throwing errors to send the Rockies to their third loss in four games. Besides contributing two sacrifice bunts, Bailey (3-2) limited a Colorado offense that produced 11 runs and 16 hits on Saturday night to one run — Charlie Blackmon’s ninth homer of the season and second in two games — and four hits with two walks and six strikeouts in 7 1-3 innings. Bailey, who signed a $105 million contract in March, struggled through his first seven starts. He began the game with an ERA at 5.36. “I had to do something,” Bailey said. “I had to figure something out. There was nowhere else to go but to be better.” Manny Parra got the final two outs of the eighth inning. The Reds snapped Nolan Arenado’s streak of getting on base at 30 consecutive games, two days after his hitting streak was stopped at a franchise-record 28 games. “Chapman threw the ball very well,” Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. “He used his splitter well to left-handed hitters. He was on today.” Juan Nicasio (4-2), who’d won his previous two starts, allowed five hits and four runs — two earned — with one walk and three strikeouts. Billy Hamilton, making his first start since spraining two knuckles on his left hand while making a diving catch on May 1, led off the first inning with a bunt single up the firstbase line and went all the way to third on first baseman Justin Morneau’s throwing error. Hamilton scored on Schumaker’s groundout to second baseman DJ LeMahieu. The Reds made it 2-0 in the third on Ramon Santiago’s leadoff bloop single to left field, Bailey’s sacrifice, a Nicasio balk while facing Hamilton and Schumaker’s soft, 2-out liner to center field. Blackmon became the first Rockie to reach base when he led off the fourth with an estimated 380-foot shot into the right field seats on a 2-2 pitch. Frazier got that run back with his seventh homer of the season, an estimated 421-foot drive to center field on a 2-2 pitch with one out in the fourth inning that extended his career-high hitting streak to 11 games (13 for 42, .310). Frazier reached an estimated 485 feet with a home run on Friday. The Reds used another throwing error to take a 4-1 lead in the fifth. With Santiago on third base and Hamilton on second and two outs, third baseman Arenado’s high throw to Morneau on Brandon Phillips’ two-out grounder pulled the first baseman off the bag. Phillips slid under the attempted tag while Santiago scored. By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
rally, oust Jefferson in baseball tourney
DELPHOS — Saturday’s Division III Sectional baseball opener involving host Jefferson and Paulding saw its ebbs and flows. The visiting Panthers got on top early with a 4-run first, only to see the Wildcats scored eight runs over the next three frames. The visitors had the last rally, putting up a 5-spot in the fifth and held on for a 9-8 triumph on a gorgeous spring afternoon. Paulding (9-10) advances to take on Coldwater 5 p.m. Thursday at Coldwater. Panther senior lefty Javier Gonzales got the win with five innings of relief (6 hits, 3 unearned runs, 3 free passes, 2 strikeouts) of junior right-handed starter Treston Gonzales (1-plus IP, 3 hits, 5 runs, 1 earned, 4 BBs, 2 Ks). The right-hander returned to earn his second save in the seventh despite giving up two hits (1 K). Jefferson senior Jordan Herron (2-2) took the loss after facing only two batters (a hit and a walk) in the fifth — after taking over for senior starter Tyler Rice (4-plus IPs, 7 hits, 8 earned runs, 2 BBs, 2 Ks). Austin Jettinghoff, the third hurler, tossed three frames of 1-hit, 1-walk relief. Jettinghoff also led at the plate for the Red and White, going 3-for-5 (2 runs scored), while freshmen Hunter Binkley (2 runs, 2 BBs) went 2-for-3 and Jace Stockwell (3 runs) 2-for-5. Senior Ross Thompson knocked in three but the Wildcats left 13 runners on base, including bases loaded in the first and sixth. Javier Gonzales had a 3-for-4 day at the plate (2 RBIs, run) and sophomore Damon Egnor was 2-for-3 (4 RBIs, run), including a first-inning 2-run round-tripper. “We left a lot of runs out there on the bases. Our offense has been spotty like that all year; sometimes we get the big hit and sometimes we don’t,” Jefferson coach Doug Geary acknowledged. “Today, we just couldn’t get enough clutch hits to add to our lead when we had the chance or to come back when they rallied.” Paulding coach Mike Leach was happy his team battled back. “We started out well and then had to come back ourselves. When we were down, we seemed lifeless but then a hustle play by (Kyle) Kauser to start the fifth - a bloop hit to right and then taking second — seemed to give us a spark,” he explained. “Our errors have killed us all year and we overcame that as well. Treston struggled early, Javier kept us in the game and Treston showed his leadership by stepping up on the mound when we needed it. We survived today but we have to clean up our play to keep moving on.” The Wildcats led 8-4 entering the top

(Delphos Herald/Randy Shellenbarger) of the fifth. Kauser singled to right and an error on the play placed him at second. A wild pitch advanced him and he scored on a single to right by Corbin Edwards. Quentin Vance bounced one up the middle that hit off the second-base bag and handcuffed Stockwell for a hit and T. Gonzales knocked Edwards home with a slug to left, ending Rice’s day on the mound for Herron. J. Gonzales walked to load them up and Egnor delivered a 2-run base knock to left that got Vance and T. Gonzales home and tied the game at 8. Jettinghoff came on in relief. Gerod Harder forced Egnor at second and moved J. Gonzales to third, from where he score — a Justin Adams walk later — on an Alex Arellano sacrifice fly to left for the game-winning tally. Jefferson tried to retaliate in the home half as senior pinch-hitter Zavier Buzard — in his third game back after offseason shoulder surgery — beat out an infield hit off the pitcher’s glove; when the throw on the play got by first baseman Harder, he turned toward second but Egnor (catcher), alertly backing up the play, tagged out Buzard. An out later, Hunter Binkley hit a bad-hop single past the third baseman and advanced on a wild pitch. Thompson walked but both were left stranded. Jefferson had a big chance in the sixth. With one out, Gaige Rassman was plunked, Rice beat out an infield hit to second and both advanced on a comebacker by pinch-hitter Gage Mercer. After Josh Teman walked to load the bases, Stockwell flied out to center to leave the score 9-8, Paulding. Delphos was not yet done but instead of the more off-speed tosser J. Gonzales, the harder-throwing T. Gonzales returned to the mound — he had never left the field after his earlier stint on the mound. Binkley beat out an infield roller to short but was forced by Thompson. With Jettinghoff up to bat, Thompson took off, opening the way for Jettinghoff to slap a single through the hole at short and ended up with runners on the corners. Jettinghoff stole second. However, the last two batters were retired on strikes to end the contest. Paulding did its damage in the first with two outs. Vance walked, stole second and scored on a hit to center by T. Gonzales. He swiped second and scored on a double by J. Gonzales. Egnor then drove a ball to deep left that hit off the top of the fence and over for a 2-run dinger. Jefferson got three back in the home first against T. Gonzales: a Stockwell single to center, a Binkley walk, a 1-out infield hit by Jettinghoff to load the bases, a 2-out error on Rassman’s grounder (plating Stockwell) and a pair of bases-loaded free passes to Rice (Binkley) and Fitch (Jettinghoff). The hosts took the lead in the second. Stockwell singled and advanced on a balk and passed ball. Binkley walked to finish the starter and bring in the reliever. Thompson flied out to center to get Stockwell in. Jettinghoff rocketed a double down the left-field line and with a drawn-in infield, Herron’s bouncer was misplayed, allowing both to score and a 6-4 edge. The visitors threatened in the third. Edwards got on via a throwing error and stole second. Vance walked. T. Gonzales forced Edwards at third. Vance was caught at third trying to advance on a pitch in the dirt. See JEFFERSON, page 8
Tomlin, Morgan key Indians’ 6-5 win over Rays
Associated Press ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Nyjer Morgan used his speed to get two key infield hits early in the game. His rare long ball provided an important late run. Morgan and Michael Bourn both drove in two runs, Josh Tomlin won his second straight start and the Cleveland Indians beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5 on Sunday. “He always plays with energy,” Indians manager Terry Francona said about Morgan. “We were looking for a way to get him in there today and I’m glad we did.” Morgan had an RBI infield single that rolled to a stop near the line between home and third before Bourn hit a 2-run double as the Indians took a 3-1 lead in the second. Morgan also hit his first major-league homer since July 30, 2012, an eighth-inning solo shot that made it 6-2. “I had to get something out of the infield today,” a smiling Morgan said. Tomlin (2-0), who pitched just once in the big leagues last season after right elbow surgery in 2012, allowed two runs and six hits over six innings in his second outing this year. “The guys made the plays in the outfield and the infield and that’s the reason I won a game,” Tomlin said. Cleveland took two out of three in the series after entering with a 7-game road skid. Matt Joyce homered and had two RBIs for the Rays, who went 1-5 on their homestand. Chris Archer (2-2) gave up four runs and eight hits in 5-plus innings. A 3-run eighth pulled the Rays to 6-5. Ben Zobrist scored the first run in the inning when reliever Marc Rzepczynski made an errant throw to second on what could have been an inning-ending double play. Cody Allen allowed Wil Myers’ RBI single and hit Desmond Jennings with a pitch to load the bases. Yunel Escobar hit a sacrifice fly. Bryan Shaw pitched a perfect ninth in place of demoted closer John Axford for his second save. Yan Gomes hit a leadoff homer that chased Archer during a 2-run sixth that gave Cleveland a 5-2 advantage. Morgan reached on a bunt single off Brad Boxberger when a call was overturned on replay. Morgan advanced on a balk and wild pitch, then scored the inning’s second run on Mike Aviles’ sacrifice fly. Joyce hit a first-inning solo homer off Tomlin. Joyce, who is 6 for 12 with two homers against the right-hander, had an RBI single in the fourth. Cleveland threatened in the first but Michael Brantley was thrown out trying to score on Carlos Santana’s two-out double. Santana went 2-for-3 with two walks and increased his batting average 12 points to .148. Brantley extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a third-inning single.
NOTES: Francona tweaked his rotation for a 3-game series at Toronto. RHP Danny Salazar (1-3) had his start pushed back to Thursday from Tuesday so that RHP Justin Masterson (2-1) and RHP Corey Kluber (3-3) can pitch Tuesday and Wednesday on normal rest. RED SOX 5, RANGERS 2 ARLINGTON, Texas — A.J. Pierzynski and Mike Napoli had run-producing hits in the first inning against their former team and the Boston Red Sox got above .500 for the first time since three games into the season with a series-clinching 5-2 victory at Texas on Sunday. Napoli put the Red Sox ahead to stay with an RBI double, two batters before Pierzynski’s two-run single. Both went to Boston as free agents after being in Texas — Pierzynski was the Rangers primary catcher last season and Napoli was there the previous two years. John Lackey (5-2) struck out nine while allowing two runs over seven innings. Rangers lefty Robbie Ross (1-4) made it through 6 2/3 innings and a career-high 112 pitches. ROYALS 9, MARINERS 7 SEATTLE — Alcides Escobar hit a grand slam and Johnny Giavotella added a 3-run shot to give the Royals a comeback victory over the Mariners. Escobar had provided a 4-0 lead for the Royals in the second with his first career home run off starter Roenis Elias. But the Mariners rallied behind two homers from Dustin Ackley and another from Kyle Seager before Kansas City took the lead in the seventh, scoring four runs off reliever Danny Farquhar (1-1). Louis Coleman (1-0), who worked a scoreless sixth, earned the victory. The Mariners committed a season-high four errors. ASTROS 5, ORIOLES 2 BALTIMORE — Jason Castro and Marc Krauss homered to account for all of Houston’s runs and the Astros beat the Orioles to avoid a 3-game sweep. Jarred Cosart (2-3) allowed two runs and eight hits over six innings for the Astros, ending Baltimore’s 5-game winning streak. Castro hit a 3-run homer off Chris Tillman (3-2) in the first inning and Krauss connected against T.J. McFarland with a runner on in the seventh. Houston is 11-11 when it hits a home run and 1-15 when it doesn’t. Although the Astros’ bullpen came in with a 6.21 ERA, Tony Sipp struck out five in two perfect innings and Chad Qualls worked the ninth for his second save. ANGELS 9, BLUE JAYS 3 TORONTO — Jered Weaver won his fourth straight decision, Hank Conger hit a 3-run homer and had a career-high five RBIs and the Angels beat Toronto for their seventh straight win over the Blue Jays. Conger went 3 for 4 with a walk. He hit an RBI double in the fourth, homered in the sixth and added an RBI single in the ninth. Howie Kendrick had three hits, two stolen bases and scored three times as the Angels won their third straight. Weaver (4-2) improved to 4-0 with a 1.71 ERA in his past four starts. Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison (1-3), who has not won in seven starts, allowed three runs and three hits in 4 1/3 innings. He matched a career-high with four walks and struck out five. TWINS 4, TIGERS 3 DETROIT — Eduardo Nunez hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and the Twins rallied for a victory over the Tigers. The Twins took advantage of poor defense by the Tigers in the late innings. Minnesota scored three runs in the eighth, spoiling another fine start by Detroit rookie Robbie Ray. The Tigers led 3-1 with two outs in the eighth when Josmil Pinto singled to left field off Joba Chamberlain (1-2) with runners on first and second. One run scored on the hit but the ball skipped past leftfielder Rajai Davis for an error that tied the game and allowed Pinto to reach second. Nunez followed with his single to make it 4-3. Jared Burton (1-1) won in relief. Glen Perkins got four outs for his 10th save in 11 chances.
NOTES: Reds RHP Mat Latos threw a bullpen session before the game, the next step in his comeback from a flexor mass strain in his right elbow that has kept him out all season. Latos had surgery to remove bone chips from the elbow shortly after the 2013 season and needed surgery on February 14 to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. He has won 14 games in each of his first two seasons with Cincinnati. GIANTS 7, DODGERS 4 LOS ANGELES — Pablo Sandoval and Hector Sanchez hit RBI singles in the 10th inning and the San Francisco Giants recovered to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-4 Sunday after closer Sergio Romo gave up a tying homer to Hanley Ramirez. Brandon Hicks hit a 2-run shot off Clayton Kershaw and Buster Posey had an RBI single for the NL West leaders, who beat the defending division champions for the seventh time in 10 meetings this season. The Giants finished their road trip 7-3 and played errorless ball over the last five games. Romo (3-0) came on in the ninth to try and protect a 4-2 lead for Tim Hudson. The right-hander struck out Yasiel Puig after a 1-out double by Dee Gordon but Ramirez lined his fifth homer to left field. The blown save was Romo’s first this season in 13 chances. Angel Pagan drew a leadoff walk in the 10th from Kenley Jansen (0-2) before Hunter Pence singled. Jean Machi got three outs for his first major league save. BRAVES 5, CUBS 2 ATLANTA — Evan Gattis hit a tie-breaking homer, Jason Heyward added a 2-run shot and Atlanta beat Chicago to complete a 3-game sweep. Gattis gave the Braves a 3-2 advantage with his homer off Edwin Jackson in the fourth inning. Heyward added to the lead with his first home run since April 9. Aaron Harang (4-3) gave up two runs in six innings with nine strikeouts. David Carpenter pitched the ninth for his second save as closer Craig Kimbrel was rested after pitching two straight days. Jackson (2-3) allowed three runs and six hits in six innings. METS 5, PHILLIES 4, 11 INNINGS NEW YORK — Daniel Murphy and the New York Mets suddenly rallied for three runs in the ninth inning against Philadelphia’s improvised bullpen, then ended a 5-game skid on Ruben Tejada’s single in the 11th. Down 4-1, the punchless Mets fought back in the ninth, sparked by Murphy’s 2-run homer off Antonio Bastardo. Chris Young ended his 0-for-18 slump with a double and Juan Lagares drove in the tying run with a slow grounder against Roberto Hernandez — who started Friday night and threw 99 pitches. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said closer Jonathan Papelbon was sore and unavailable to pitch in a third straight game. Scott Rice (1-1) got Reid Brignac on a grounder with two runners on to finish the top of the 11th. Jeff Manship (1-1) took the loss. New York’s comeback denied Cole Hamels his elusive first win of the season and the 100th of his career. He struck out 10 in seven innings while throwing a whopping 133 pitches, the most of any major-leaguer this year. PADRES 5, MARLINS 4 SAN DIEGO — Will Venable hit a leadoff homer and San Diego beat Miami for its first 3-game winning streak of the season. The resurgent Padres offense, which has scored 24 runs in three games, also got two hits and two RBIs from Chris Denorfia. Robbie Erlin (2-4) scattered five hits over 6 1/3 scoreless innings before giving way to three relievers. Huston Street pitched around a hit and two walks in the ninth to earn his 11th save. Erlin, who didn’t walk a batter, had seven strikeouts to match a career high. He had lost four straight decisions. Padres pitchers struck out 48 in the 4-game series to set a franchise record. Henderson Alvarez (2-3), who was coming off his second shutout of the season and third in his last eight starts, wasn’t sharp. He lasted four innings, allowing five runs and seven hits with three walks. Christian Yelich homered for the Marlins and Jeff Baker had a 2-run triple. ___ INTERLEAGUE BREWERS 6, YANKEES 5 MILWAUKEE — Mark Reynolds hit a game-ending single with two outs in the ninth inning and Milwaukee overcame Francisco Rodriguez’s first blown save of the season to beat New York. Rickie Weeks doubled just inside first base with one out before going to third on a wild pitch by reliever Adam Warren (1-2). Reynolds, who spent part of last season with the Yankees, held his right index finger in the air after his hard chopper bounced past diving third baseman Yangervis Solarte. New York was one strike from defeat in the top of the ninth when Mark Teixeira homered off Rodriguez (1-0). It was the first run allowed all season by the veteran closer. Before the game, the Yankees put struggling left-hander CC Sabathia on the disabled list with a right knee injury.

Clippers stun Thunder 101-99 to tie series
Associated Press LOS ANGELES — After being thoroughly outplayed for over 40 minutes, the Los Angeles Clippers fought back. Leading the way was a player not known for coming up big in the clutch. Darren Collison scored eight of his 18 points in the final 2:58, rallying the Clippers past the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-99 on Sunday to tie the Western Conference semifinal series 2-2. Russell Westbrook, who scored 27 points, missed a 3-pointer and Serge Ibaka’s tip attempt was too late at the buzzer, allowing the Clippers to salvage a game they trailed until the final 1:23. Blake Griffin led Los Angeles with 25 points, making 9 of 11 free throws. Jamal Crawford added 18 points. DeAndre Jordan had 14 rebounds, helping the Clippers win the boards, 45-43 — the first time in 11 playoff games the Thunder were outrebounded. “We just willed this one. We found a way,” said Chris Paul, who had 23 points and 10 assists. Kevin Durant scored 40 points, hitting 15-of-18 free throws, for the Thunder. Game 5 is Tuesday night in Oklahoma City. “We were almost on the mat and we got off of it. We didn’t get pinned,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “They’re seething right now. They had an opportunity to go up 3-1 and now it’s an even series.” It was the 14th comeback — and largest yet — by the Clippers this season after trailing by double digits. They rallied from 12 points down in the second quarter of Game 7 to oust Golden State in the first round. The Clippers had no answer for Durant and Westbrook until midway through the fourth quarter. That dynamic duo drove the lane with abandon, drew fouls and made free throws in leading the Thunder to an early 22-point lead. Durant’s 3-point play early in the fourth extended the Thunder’s lead to 15 points and they were still up by 10 with 7:44 to go. But the comeback Clippers were not to be denied. The Clippers stole a page out of the Thunder’s playbook, switching to a smaller lineup that included Collison and Danny Granger, who helped disrupt the Thunder’s rebounding late. Paul willed his team back into it, scoring six straight points to get the Clippers within six. Griffin, who was saddled with five fouls, made three out of four free throws before Collison got hot. With the game tied at 97, Collison scored the Clippers’ final four points on layups. Crawford passed to a streaking Collison for a fast-break conversion on the second one for a 101-97 lead with 32 seconds left. Westbrook scored for the Thunder but after Griffin missed, Westbrook did too to end the game. Paul missed all five of his shots in the third, when Griffin picked up three fouls to give him five, and Crawford and Jordan each got their third. Ibaka, who shot 9-of-10 in the Thunder’s Game 3 win, got his fourth foul, along with Westbrook in the third. The Clippers came as close as eight points before Reggie Jackson’s 3-pointer beat the shot clock to keep the Thunder ahead 75-63 going into the fourth. The Thunder had the Clippers on their heels from the opening tip, with Oklahoma City shooting 65 percent in building a 22-point lead. Oklahoma City outscored the Clippers 32-15 in the first; the fewest points they’ve allowed in a quarter of a playoff game. PACERS 95, WIZARDS 92 WASHINGTON — Paul George had a career playoff-high 39 points and added 12 rebounds to lead Indiana back from a 19-point deficit and past Washington in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Pacers lead the series 3-1 and can close it out Tuesday night at home. George played 46 minutes and scored 28 points in the second half, including making six of his franchise playoff-record-tying seven 3-pointers. Roy Hibbert had 17 points and nine rebounds, continuing his recent surge after a poor-as-can-be start to the series. Bradley Beal led Washington with 20 points.

The bats were quiet for both teams in the sixth inning as the Jays had one more chance for the comeback in the next inning. Jalen Roberts was called to the mound to finish the game for Lincolnview in the seventh inning. Jackson rudely greeted him with a solid single to left. J.R. Keirns popped out for the first out and Jackson advanced all the way to third base on a wild pitch. Wrasman’s speed down the first-base line beat out his grounder to deep third for the infield hit as Jackson scored. Roberts struck out Hoersten to end the game. “Our defense played well again today,” explained Longstreth. “The last few weeks, our hitting has kick-started our game. We got the number one seed in the sectionals, Ft. Recovery on Wednesday; hopefully we can continue.” The Blue Jays stranded nine runners while the Lancers left eight runners on base. Leeth led the Lancer attack with a pair of hits and two runs batted in. Falmer pitched six strong innings, scattering four hits and striking out five. Wrasman and Ditto each had two hits for the Jays. Even though St. John’s was eliminated from the post-season
with the loss, the regular season continues tonight with a game at home against M.A.C. opponent Ft. Recovery.

Abducted Nigerian girl scared to go back to school Insurgents say Ukraine MICHELLE FAUL #BringBackOurGirls. negotiators and others from by the increasingly deadly region opts for sovereignty Associated Press Lawan told The Associated Britain, France, China and attacks of the Boko Haram
BAUCHI, Nigeria — One of the teenagers who escaped from Islamic extremists who abducted more than 300 schoolgirls says the kidnapping was “too terrifying for words,” and she is now scared to go back to school. Sarah Lawan, a 19-yearold science student, spoke Sunday as Nigerians prayed for the safety of the 276 students still held captive. Their prayers were joined by Pope Francis. “Let us all join in prayer for the immediate release of the schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria,” the Roman Catholic leader tweeted, using the trending Press that more of the girls could have escaped but that they were frightened by their captors’ threats to shoot them. She spoke in the local Hausa language in a phone interview from Chibok, her home and the site of the mass abduction in northeast Nigeria. The failure to rescue those who remain captive four weeks later has attracted mounting national and international outrage. Last week, Nigeria was forced to accept international help in the search, after ignoring offers for weeks. More experts are expected in Nigeria to help rescue the girls, including U.S. hostage Spain. “I am pained that my other colleagues could not summon the courage to run away with me,” Lawan said. “Now I cry each time I come across their parents and see how they weep when they see me.” Police say 53 students have escaped. Nigeria’s homegrown Boko Haram terrorist network is threatening to sell those who remain in captivity into slavery. In churches across the nation, Nigerians prayed for the girls, whose plight has brought together ordinary people in a year that had seen growing dissension between Muslims and Christians, disagreements exacerbated terrorist network. Africa’s most populous nation of 170 million has almost equal numbers of Christians and Muslims. The Rev. Stephen Omale prayed at a church in Abuja, the Nigerian capital. “Wherever they are, God will bring them out in his own mercy, he will see that they are brought out safely, without harm and also that this act will bring an end to all those who are perpetrating these acts,” he told congregants. Boko Haram claimed two bomb blasts that killed about 100 people and wounded more than 200 in the capital last month.
DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) — Ninety percent of voters in a key industrial region in eastern Ukraine came out in favor of sovereignty Sunday, pro-Russian insurgents said in announcing preliminary results of a twin referendum that is certain to deepen the turmoil in the country. Roman Lyagin, election chief of the self-styled Donetsk People’s Republic, said around 75 percent of the Donetsk region’s 3 million or so eligible voters cast ballots, and the vast majority backed self-rule. With no international election monitors in place, it was all but impossible to verify the insurgents’ claims. The preliminary vote count was announced just two hours after the polls closed in an election conducted via paper ballots. A second referendum organized by pro-Russian separatists was held Sunday in eastern Ukraine’s industrial Luhansk region, but no immediate results were released. Ukraine’s central government and the West had condemned the balloting as a sham and a violation of international law, and they have accused Moscow of orchestrating the unrest in a possible attempt to grab another piece of the country weeks after the annexation of Crimea.

After building a compost pile, nature does most of the work and it is up to the owner to bring the raw materials together to promote decomposition. The four ingredients needed for success are organic material, including leaves, grass clippings, garden plants, kitchen scraps and shredded paper, soil organisms, such as bacteria, fungi and other decomposers, water and oxygen. There are many nitrogen- and carbon-rich raw materials to add to a compost pile and each of the two should be layered alternately on top of one another. Carbon-rich materials (brown) include cotton or wool rags,
dryer and vacuum cleaner lint, eggshells, nut shells, fireplace ashes (from wood burning), sawdust, hay and straw, yard trimmings, houseplants, used potting soil, wood chips, shredded newspaper, cardboard rolls and clean paper. Nitrogen-rich materials (green) include uncooked or cooked fruits and vegetables, bread and grains, coffee grounds and filters, grass clippings, paper tea bags, hair and fur and chicken, rabbit, cow, or horse manure. The OEPA recommends a composting bin that is one cubic yard — 3’x3’x3’ — in size and located in a well-drained area out of direct sunlight. Brake said the interesting thing
about waste is there is so much of it and there’s no end. Recycling has created and spurred industry, such as companies that provide services to safely dispose of and/or recover all volatile organic compounds (VOC), lithium batteries, etc. “We get tons of books, in fact, we get so many, we have a collection on shelves and in boxes that people can go through and take home to read,” Brake added. “We also get 60-80 thousand pounds of televisions which costs 10 cents per pound to process.” For more information, call Van Wert Solid Waste Management at 419238-7767 or visit www.epa.ohio.gov/ dmwm/Home/Composting.

The report said the BLM had failed to conduct inspections on more than 2,100 of the 3,702 wells that it had specified as “high priority” and drilled from 2009 through 2012. The agency considers a well “high priority” based on a greater need to protect against possible water contamination and other environmental safety issues. The agency had yet to indicate whether another 1,784 wells were high priority or not.
The BLM has developed agreements with some states, which also have jurisdiction over well inspections on federal lands. According to the GAO, it had reached agreements with regulators in California, Colorado, Nevada and Wyoming. The report said BLM has not reviewed or updated many of its oil and gas rules to reflect technological advances, as required by a 2011 executive order. They include guidance on spacing of wells, which the report said could help maximize oil and gas production.

75 Years Ago – 1939 The Delphos committee in charge of proposed WPA projects went to Toledo Wednesday to confer with William B. Schmuhl, WPA director in the Toledo district. The meeting was held with regard to the type of swimming pool that can be constructed in Delphos. Those present at the meeting from Delphos were Mayor D. L. Baringer, Service Director Charles Myers, E. O. Steinle, Otto Birkmeier, Leo Odenweller, John Marsh, Jr., and T. J. Laudick. A number of Delphos people were in Van Wert Wednesday night to witness the selection of Queen Jubilee the Eighth for the annual Van Wert People Festival to be held June 8 at Van Wert. Bette Joan Jones, representing York Centralized School, was named queen. Carolyn Dukes of Delphos Jefferson represented that school in the contest. “Handel, Hayden and Mozart” were discussed at the regular meeting of the Beta Delphian Chapter held Wednesday evening in the office of the Ohio Power Company. Mrs. J. Russell Critchett served as leader. Hortense Metcalfe presented the preliminary discussion.

In 2013, they equaled 23 percent of those who go to the movies more than once a month, according to the 2013 Theatrical Market Statistics Report by the Motion Picture Association of America. This age group was also highest in both 2011 and 2012.

But initially, they’re often hard to market. It’s key, says Block, for studios to do a lot of screenings to ignite buzz — and hope for rave reviews, because people in this group still read reviews and are affected by them. The stars’ likability and familiarity also matter, adds Block. “This audience is sophisticated. They aren’t going to the movies just to go.” If “Neighbors” dominates on its opening weekend as expected (projections have it making nearly $50 million), could the studios’ view of these types of films change? “Three years ago ‘Bridesmaids’ was a smash and now this summer there are all of these hard R-rated comedies,” says Karger. “It takes about two or three years to see the effect of a game-changing movie. If ‘Neighbors’ becomes this smash, then I think there will be more of an appetite at the studios for films of this type.”

also bring along a friend (just one, thank goodness). I love having them, but I end up spending a fortune entertaining them. I pay for every meal, including restaurants, and we eat out a lot. I love to take them places, but I’m on a fixed income and would like to make it less expensive. Do you think if I were to give each of my granddaughters a set amount of money they would be more frugal? They earn a lot of money babysitting, but I feel funny asking them to spend their own money on things when they visit me. Any suggestions? -- Going Broke in Florida Dear Going Broke: You should not have to foot the entire bill for two teenagers and their friend. You are already giving them a free place to stay and any meals eaten at home. But please don’t demand payment from the girls. Instead, ask the parents to help you with the cost of entertaining these young people for a week. They also could give the girls an allowance for personal expenses (movies with the friend, trips to a
Annie’s Mailbox restaurant, mall purchases). The extra girl’s parents should similarly send her with personal money so she does not become a burden. Taking the girls for a week is a lovely way to bond with your granddaughters, but it is also a favor to the parents. Explain the situation and ask them to help remedy the problem. Dear Annie: Our nephew recently announced his engagement and wedding date. His fiancee’s older sister is getting married two weeks before. The sister’s future husband called my nephew and flatout stated that it is inappropriate that they have chosen a date so close to theirs, as it will take away from their special day. He suggested my nephew move his wedding to December at the earliest. However, the sister has not mentioned a word of this to my nephew’s fiancee. We can’t help but

What is the wedding protocol in this instance? -Aunt and Uncle from Wisconsin Dear Aunt and Uncle: It was very inconsiderate of your nephew and his bride to schedule their wedding two weeks after her sister’s already-chosen date. It does indeed take away from their special day, and more importantly, it puts a terrible burden on family and friends in terms of gifts and travel expenses. It also appears to others as though your nephew’s bride resents her older sister. We hope you can convince your nephew to give his guests a few months to recover from the first wedding before attending the next. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Blue-Collar G r a n d p a r e n t s ,” whose grandchildren are pulling out their hair. I’d like to suggest that they bring up the possibility of PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with strep). If either of these kids has had numerous strep
he was 4, but I’d never heard of it then. He had seven strep infections in a row. He began displaying OCD behavior, which included pulling out nearly half of the hair on his head. If your child has multiple strep infections, it might be worthwhile to check for PANDAS, if only to rule it out. -- A Sympathetic Grandmother Dear Sympathetic: Thank you for m e n t i o n i n g PANDAS. There is currently no test for PANDAS, but doctors look for a sudden onset of OCD and/or tic disorders following multiple strep infections.

Once or twice a week, friends and neighbors will show up at our back door with a carton of “extra” eggs. These eggs do not come from free-range chickens. They come from the out-inthe-front-yard, car-dodging, yard-pecking, chase-youaround-the-lawn chickens that everybody with a driveway-sized plot of land seems to be raising at the moment. Living in small towns and on five-acre ranches has never seemed so Green Acreish. And why not? It’s almost cheaper to buy a dozen chicks than a dozen eggs. And with the chickens come the eggs. Sue and I have gone through about every egg recipe we have ever heard of, 670 Miscellaneous and many we haven’t, and we still have eggs left over. It could only be better if our friends would pay us to take their eggs. “What, shirred eggs again?” I heard myself ask the other GREAT RATES morning.

But it’s only $3,000 a month plus utilities. Eggs are extra. Am I worried about my cholesterol by eating so many eggs? Compared to what? Bacon? Sausage? Nachos? Cream cheese? Hot dogs? Hamburgers? Pizza? I think the “egg vs. cholesterol” controversy ship sailed a long time ago. Besides, if you want to sell something, the best way to get people to buy it is to tell people it’s bad for them. Read a grocery store flyer and tell me which items are on sale -- the “healthy” items or the “unhealthy” ones. But a more interesting question is, why are so many people raising chickens? Is it about money or a lifestyle or both? I see everything at the grocery store getting more expensive -- I recently paid $1.69 for one good-sized apple and $3.85 for a gallon of gas. But according to the latest government report, our core inflation rate is not rising. Of course, as they have for many years, they don’t count food and gas, the two main things that are rising. Well, why stop there?
If they’re not going to count food and gas, they may as well not count rent, tuition, doctor’s bills, cable TV, utilities and clothes. Inflation could be totally eliminated. So, if you don’t buy anything, the price of nothing has not gone up. Which is good news. No wonder consumer confidence is up -consumers are confident the price of everything they buy is rising. Which is why they are buying chickens. Or is the chicken trend so big because we long for days gone by, when life was simpler, when people were more connected to the land, when neighbors did things for each other? If you want that good old-fashioned connection, there’s an app for that. All you have to do is download Poultry Pal from an app store near you. And there’s always an app store near you if you have a smartphone. But I do wonder what’s next. I know people are putting beehives in their backyards and on their rooftops. But what happens when your next-door neighbor wants to raise his own sheep? Or cows? Or buffalo? I guess it would depend on whether they’re dropping by with “extra” beef or not.

MONDAY, MAY 12, 2014 Aim for harmony in your business and personal relationships this year. You will fall short of your goals if you give in to self-doubt. Spend more time doing things that relax and revive you. Size up your situation until you know what you want, and make your dreams come true. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are always ready to lend a hand, and it will win you many friends and valuable allies. An associate will provide the key needed to help you realize a professional opportunity. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will be admired for your creative talents. You may be in a mood to party, but don’t give in to excess. Overindulgence will lead to stress and weight gain. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Problems with your partner may require professional help. If you are not getting the honest feedback you need, get legal advice. Taking a casual “wait and see” attitude could be costly. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can’t take things at face value. Someone may be stretching the truth. Rather than depend on others, you will need to do some independent digging to get the real story. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- This is not a good time to lend or borrow. Someone may try to take advantage of you. Steer clear of any loan requests, and keep tabs on your possessions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Concentrate on personal pleasures rather than group involvements. Take time to pamper yourself. It will help dispel the worry and uneasiness that are distracting you from your goals. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- It may be a favorable time to invest. Look into antiques, art or other objects that have the potential to increase in value. Choose items that also enrich your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Don’t be deceived by a fast talker. Your trusting nature could cost you. Rely on your instincts. If something seems too good to be true, stay away. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) -- You will get ahead if you overcome your shyness. Others cannot help you until they know what you have to offer. Be self-assured and promote your assets and potential. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 19) -- It’s important to clear up unfinished business and stay on top of small details. Do whatever it takes to prepare for obstacles that may stand between you and your goals. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Your partner may be trying to keep something from you. If you are getting conflicting information, keep the conversation going until you find out exactly what’s going on. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t be deterred by cynics. Be committed to your choices, and you will be able to forge ahead and get what you want in the end. ** COPYRIGHT 2014 United Feature Syndicate, Inc. DISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL UCLICK FOR UFS

Coaches, pilot remembered after balloon crash
ALAN SUDERMAN and LARRY O’DELL Associated Press RICHMOND, Va. — One was the constant in Richmond women’s basketball, the beloved assistant coach who had been on staff for 15 seasons, remaining through two coaching changes. The other was hardly out of college, always cheerful and willing to help. Associate head coach Ginny Doyle and director of basketball operations Natalie Lewis were killed Friday in a fiery hot-air balloon crash along with the pilot, Daniel T. Kirk, who had 20 years of flying experience and was affectionately known as “Capt. Kirk.” The three were mourned Sunday by friends, family and colleagues alike. “There’s not a person in this business that doesn’t see Ginny as just a light,” Joanne Boyle, now the coach at Virginia, said of Doyle, who was on her staff with the Spiders from 2002-05. “She was just a light for other people, and when you talk about this business and the genuineness and caring about the kids and what’s best for the student-athletes, she epitomized that.” Doyle, 44, was hired by Bob Foley at Richmond in 1999. When Boyle got her first head coaching job, replacing Foley at Richmond, Doyle “just rose to the top” in an interview and Boyle decided to keep her on staff. She also tried to get Doyle to come along when she left for California, but with no luck. Instead, Doyle stayed on when Michael Shafer took over, and rose three years ago to associate head coach. Lewis, 24, was a four-year letter-winner in swimming who just completed her second season with the basketball program. Her job required great organization skills as she made travel, hotel and bus arrangements for the team, planned for meals and handled day-to-day basketball business.
Police add texting to crisis negotiation arsenal
Associated Press The suspect in a gas station robbery and 100 mph chase kept pointing his handgun to his head, and police negotiator Andres Wells was doing all he could to keep the man from committing suicide. But he kept cutting Wells’ phone calls short. Then, about 10 minutes after the last hang up, Wells’ cellphone chimed. It was a text — from the suspect. “Please call Amie,” the message said, followed by the number of the man’s girlfriend. Wells was taken aback. In three years as a negotiator with the Kalamazoo, Michigan, police, he’d always relied on spoken give-and-take, taking cues from a person’s tone of voice, the inflections, emotions. He’d never thought about negotiating via text. “It had never even been brought up at one of our training,” Wells recalled of the 2011 case. With 6 billion text messages exchanged daily in the U.S. alone, law enforcement officers are increasingly being called upon to defuse violent, unpredictable situations through the typed word. Experts say it’s happened enough in the last five years to warrant new, specialized training. But in Wells’ case, he had to adapt on the fly. “What do you want me to tell her?” he texted back. “The truth,” suspect Jesse Cook wrote. While Wells ordinarily would rely on a skill called “active listening,” he couldn’t hear Cook’s voice. Cook couldn’t hear his. Was he yelling? Crying? “It’s not the preferred method of communication in a crisis, but if it’s the only way that we have, then we’ll engage,” said New York State Police spokeswoman Darcy Wells. Outside Buffalo, New York, in March, a suspect who’d shot at Erie County Sheriff’s deputies responding to a domestic call was carrying on text exchanges with several relatives when law enforcement negotiators got involved in the electronic conversations, eventually persuading him to surrender. “He didn’t want to talk as much as he wanted to text,” Sheriff’s Capt. Gregory Savage said. “It wasn’t part of the training I got when I went through the crisis negotiator school put on by the FBI, but it’s something that they are incorporating into any new training.” Red Bank, Tennessee, Police Chief Tim Christol includes texting in his sessions and has published articles on the topic. Besides adrenaline rendering negotiators all thumbs on a miniature keypad, Christol said, many of the typical skills officers employ to get people talking don’t always translate, things like emotional labeling — telling someone “I hear sadness” or “You sound angry.”
