Fight the bite
Mosquito bites can cause illness
From the Allen County Health Department LIMA – The Allen County Health Department has received two reports of suspected cases of La Crosse encephalitis (also known as California encephalitis). Both cases were reported in children and both are recovering at home. La Crosse encephalitis is transmitted by the bite of an infected Metro photo mosquito. Mosquitoes can transmit “This is a good reminder diseases from infected birds for all of us to ‘fight the bite’ of mammals to humans. and protect ourselves from The most important steps mosquito-borne diseases, especially this time of year,” to protect one’s self is to said Health Commissioner avoid being bitten and to David L.

Get in the last hurrah
Although the calender may not reflect it, summer is almost over. How do I know this? Well, for one, I was attacked by a cicada the other night on my porch. That is definitely not a “summer” activity. I’m sure for anyone who caught the performance, it was a show-stopper. I yelled and ran around in circles with my arms up in the air. Probably not the most graceful thing but it worked. That awful thing got off me and when I got in the house and shut the door, it beat on the storm door four or five times before giving up and flying off. According to my esteemed colleague, the earlier you hear them, the earlier the frost is. Fall may be sooner than we think; I’ve been hearing them buzz for weeks. I know we’ve had some pretty steamy weather in the last month and it couldn’t seem less like school is going to start in two weeks. It doesn’t seem possible. After we celebrate the Fourth of July, the rest of the summer seems to evaporate. I couldn’t believe it when I got the first school registration. Many of my flowers are starting to show the wear and tear of blooming like crazy for weeks. The impatiens are looking creepy with their spindly pale stalks and sparse leaves and my pink petunia, aptly named Pinky Tuscadero, has flowered its brains out and now only looks somewhat healthy in the twilight while I’m watering it. Unfortunately, the potted tomatoes have that funk that comes from water splashing up from the dirt and the ones in the back could have a case of the blight. My husband seems to be tomato-challenged. We have tried to grow two tomato plants in that Topsy Turvy thing and failed miserably both times. The first time we got one from a friend and pushed our little tomato plant through the bottom and filled it with dirt and then my husband watered it diligently every day. We found out you really aren’t supposed to fill it up with dirt or water them

that much and it quickly drowned and looked like a weed that had been set on fire. The second time around, we got one already well established. It was ginormous. It already had three tomatoes on it. We thought we had it made. We were going to show that Topsy Turvy a thing or two. It only took us four weeks to kill that one. We did get a couple tomatoes off of it before its demise. I’m not sure what happened to it. I know at one point my husband thought I was watering it and I thought he was. Hmmm. Both ended up in the garbage. Maybe we should just stick to the cherry and regular we plant in the ground. Kind of hard to go wrong that way as long as you water them. Football practice has been underway for weeks and the first local scrimmage was Friday morning. I don’t know if you know this but there is a girl on the Jefferson junior high team. She’s soft-spoken and cute and isn’t afraid to hit or take one. She listens to her favorite Michael Jackson tune before each practice. She rocks! She’s one of my heroes. I know many won’t agree but that’s OK. It makes it all the more interesting. We all don’t always have to agree. Another sure sign of the end of the summer is Allen and Van Wert county fairs. They are just around the corner, too. So now is the time. Carpe diem! Take that weekend trip, get in that last swim. Summer’s almost over and times a-wastin’. You need to get in the last hurrah of summer.

HOLT, England (AP) — He’s Britain’s most talked-about young artist. His paintings fetch hefty sums and there’s a long waiting list for his eagerly anticipated new works. It has all happened so quickly — he’s still getting used to the spotlight — and Kieron Williamson fidgets a little when he’s asked to share his thoughts on art. “Cows are the easiest thing to paint,” said Kieron, who has just turned 8. “You don’t have to worry about doing so much detail.” Horses, he says, are “a lot harder. You have to get their legs right, and you have to make their back legs much bigger than their front.” Paintbrush prodigy Kieron — dubbed “mini Monet” by the British press — is a global sensation. All 33 of the pastels, watercolors and oil paintings in his latest exhibition sold, within half an hour, for a total of 150,000 pounds ($235,000). Buyers from as far away as the United States lined up overnight outside the gallery, and there is a 3,000-strong waiting list for his impressionistic landscapes of boat-dotted estuaries, snowy fields and wide marshland skies. He has a website and a business card. Strangers approach him at the gallery, asking him to sign postcards of his work. Journalists from around the world travel to his small home town in eastern England to interview him. Kieron shrugs off the attention. “It feels normal to me,” he says. It definitely doesn’t feel normal to his parents, Keith and Michelle Williamson. They are bemused, proud and a little anxious about their son’s talent and its effects. “It has been overwhelming,” said Michelle Williamson, a 37-year-old nutritional therapist. She and her 44-year-old art dealer husband live in a small apartment with Kieron and his 6-year-old sister, Billie-Jo. Kieron was a normal, energetic little boy, and his parents were surprised when he asked for pencils and paper during a holiday in Cornwall two years ago. They were astonished when the then-5-year-old produced an accomplished picture of boats in a harbor. He progressed rapidly to fully realized landscapes, many depicting the flat, open Norfolk countryside near their home. “Keith and I don’t paint, so we find it difficult to know what’s going on inside his head,” Michelle said. “We don’t understand it. We don’t know where it comes from. But he’s adamant it’s what he wants to do. When your child has got such a gift and a talent, you have to support him.” That hasn’t stopped the Williamsons worrying about whether they are doing the right thing in exposing him to so much attention. They showed Kieron’s work to a local gallery, which has mounted two exhibitions and is helping them cope with the flood of global interest.

What an ingenious idea!
We also have an example of an early portable metal bathtub (right) and a large shovel\scoop, (pictured below), which was used to hand haul dirt from the site during the digging of the canal. Pictures from the canal era, as well as canal boat models, replicas, paintings and photos can also be viewed at the museum. and from 7-9 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th

Beams and pieces of the actual Marguerite, which were recovered from the canal by the Knights of Columbus Squires youth organization, are also being brought to the museum from storage. With the much-needed expansion of the museum well underway, many more of the treasures generously donated to the museum by the citizens of Delphos and the surrounding area will soon have a place of honor for all to see!

Readers send in Father’s Day song suggestions
Dear Readers: When we printed the letter from Walt Paluch, asking for the words to an old Father’s Day song, we had no idea so many readers would be interested.

FILLER & SEALER
MASSILLON (AP) — An Ohio snack foods manufacturer has said its new production facility in northeast Ohio will create 169 jobs. Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland joined Shearer’s Foods Inc. CEO Robert Shearer at the ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday for the company’s new Massillon production plant. Officials say phase one of the project will create 79 jobs with a second phase creating 90 more jobs in January 2011. The state of Ohio in 2008 awarded the company a tax credit valued at an estimated $612,000 to assist the project. Shearer’s officials say the new plant will use about 30 percent less energy per pound than the company’s current manufacturing lines. The Brewster-based company manufactures snack foods including potato chips, pretzels, tortilla chips, whole grain chips and pork rinds.

Friendship Link and student exchange
Germany have taken part in this student exchange program during the past 16 years. He is planning a reunion with them in September. I would like to encourage young people from our area to be part of this cultural exchange…..if you can’t go for three months, go for a month. It broadens your horizons. Sabrina Ashby has taken part in the exchange by living with the Meissners for a month. She was a good friend of Helen’s, while she attended school here. Several members of my family have hosted German students in this program and later traveled to Germany to visit with them. We first met Frithjof during our 1994 visit to Germany. He expressed an interest in the Friendship Link since the Bredeicks were from Verl. Ferdinand Bredeick and Rev. John Otto Bredeick were among the founding fathers of our community. Many of us have had the pleasure of visiting the Bredeick home near Verl. Elfriede Meermeier, mother of Christine Meissner lives there with her son, Alfred Meermeier and wife Doneta and their family. Frithjof mentioned that Alfred will be having some surgery in the near future. Remember him in your prayers and cards. Several Friendship exchange visits have taken place between our two towns. They first came here in 1995. Mayor Michael Gallmeier, Rick Hanser, Keith Ebbeskotte and Bill Gunter visited Verl in April to help celebrate the town becoming a city. The Delphos tour group will go to Germany in 2012 and our Verl friends will return to Delphos in 2015. Start making your plans now. It will be fun, educational and broaden your horizons. Just an added note for those of you who remember Gabby, who traveled with our German visitors in 2009. She and her husband, Leonhard, are the new king and queen of the Schutzenfest. This celebration is really a big deal in German towns. The man earns the status of King by being the “top shooter” of the town. You have to attend a Schutzenfest to know what it is.

friend from Verl – Kaunitz, Germany. He is a teacher at the Gymnasium Werther, near Verl. Frithjof is the master mind of the student exchange program between Verl and Delphos. He also teamed with John Sheeter to establish the Friendship Link between our two cities. During his visit to Delphos, he was a guest in the Gallmeier and Hanser homes. Frithjof and his wife, Christine, are parents of three children: Jochen, 28; Christian, 23 and Helen, 17. Christine is a homemaker. All three Meissner children participated in the student – exchange program. Helen was here in 2009, living with Rick and Pam Hanser, and attending Delphos St. John’s High School. Following college, Jochen went into business for himself. He has a camping supply store. Christian also spent a few months in Delphos in 2009, as an intern at the Wastewater Treatment Plant. He has since received his degree in environmental engineering and is working in renewable energy. Frithjof was visiting in Delphos for a few days this month after escorting six exchange students from the Verl area. This year there are two boys and four girls in the group. Four students will attend St. John’s High School for three months and two will be enrolled at Jefferson. Frithjof estimates that 50 to 60 young people from

Obama signs $600M Auto sales boost otherwise weak retail sector border security bill into law
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Friday signed into law a $600 million measure that will put more agents and equipment along the Mexican border. Obama signed the bill in the Oval Office alongside Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. It will pay for the hiring of 1,000 new Border Patrol agents to be deployed at critical areas along the border, as well as more Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. It also provides for new communications equipment and greater use of unmanned surveillance drones. Some Republicans, including Arizona Sen. John McCain, say that while the legislation is a start, it falls short by not dramatically increasing the number of customs inspectors along the border and not funding a program that charges illegal immigrants with low-level crimes. Arizona has been at the epicenter of the border security debate because of its new law directing law enforcement officers to be more aggressive in seeking out illegal immigrants. Although a federal judge has since struck down some of the law’s major provisions, it remains a rallying cry for those who say Washington has lost control of the border.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans spent less at most retail stores in July and inflation remained tame as high unemployment and weak job growth fueled fears of a slowing economic recovery. A busy month for car dealerships and higher gas prices lifted overall retail sales 0.4 percent last month, the Commerce Department said Friday. It was the first overall gain in three months. Still, most retailers reported declines. Excluding autos and gasoline sales — which accounted for one-fourth of the July figures — retail sales fell 0.1 percent last month. Sales were down 1 percent at department stores and also dropped at specialty clothing stores, furniture stores, hardware stores and appliance stores. “While retailers have seen a solid gain in activity compared to last year, the more recent three month trend has been negative and that is not good news,” said Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors. The Consumer Price Index rose 0.3 percent in July, the Labor Department said. But that was mostly because of rising gas prices. After stripping out volatile food and gas prices, the so-called “core” index increased 0.1 percent. Over the past year, core consumer prices rose 0.9 percent — the slowest pace in more than four decades.

In fact, if you hold multiple accounts with various brokers, it can be difficult to keep track of your investments and to see if you’re properly diversified.* At the very least, multiple accounts usually mean multiple fees.

Bulldogs impressive vs. Blue Jays
By JIM METCALFE The Delphos Herald firstname.lastname@example.org ELIDA — St. John’s and Elida took two entirely different ideas out about their scrimmage on a sunny and very warm Friday morning at Kraft Memorial Stadium. The Blue Jays head coach Todd Schulte was not a happy camper, while Elida boss Jason Carpenter was more than pleased. It becomes apparent when you consider that the host Bulldogs shut out the Jays 24-0. “We played as we practiced. We’ve seen a lot of the ‘press clippings’ and believed them, based on how we played today,” Schulte explained. “We’ve talked to the kids a lot about how we cannot depend on being experienced and what we’re ‘supposed’ to do but if we don’t have their attention now, it’s going to be a long road to hoe.” Carpenter had a different perspective. “Our defense set the tone
A long, strange day at PGA
By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Tiger Woods ate breakfast three times before he teed off in the first round of the PGA Championship. It was time for dinner when his second round began Friday. Bubba Watson walked off Whistling Straits atop the leaderboard after opening with a 68. He waited 30 hours for his next shot. And then there’s Nick Watney. “I was talking with my caddie this afternoon and we were talking about something that happened this morning,” he said. “But we both thought it was yesterday. So it’s been a long day. I’ll have no trouble sleeping tonight and wake up tomorrow and see where we’re at.” Not much is clear in the final major of the year. At least not yet. After two days — but not two full rounds — Matt Kuchar was atop the leaderboard after another rock-solid round on a soft course. He nearly holed out from the 13th fairway again during a stretch of three straight birdies that led to a 3-under 69. Kuchar was at 8-under 136, one shot ahead of Watney, who had a 68. Kuchar woke up at 4 a.m. to get to the course and resume his second round at 7 a.m. But while it was clear on the practice range, it was soon tough to see the clubhouse 200 yards away and players had to wait 2 1/2 hours to start. Kuchar made birdie on his first hole — the sixth — to take the lead, finished up his 67, had a quick lunch and played the second round. Woods finally teed off at 5:45 p.m., leaving him enough time to play six holes and make six pars. Woods remained at 1 under. The fog played havoc on the starting times. Whistling Straits delivered its own share of misery, too, starting with European Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie. He played in the same group with Kuchar and was 26 shots worse over two rounds, going 78-83. Phil Mickelson took some unusual routes from tee-togreen, although some of his misses were so big that he wound up in the gallery, where the grass had been trampled. Mickelson carries extra gloves in his bag for souvenirs when he hits a fan and he handed one out on the 15th hole, complete with a frown sign inside the “o” in “Sorry.” No apologies were necessarily when he scrambled his way to a 69, putting him at 2-under 142 and still very much alive in his quest to
for us in our last four games last season, a 4-game winning streak. I expect that to carry over,” he asserted. “When our defense sets the tone like it did today, it also carries over to the offense. We came out with great intensity, just like we have to play.” Elida scored three plays into its first 10-play series, a 2-yard run by Justin Blymeyer. The conversion kick — with no defense — was good. When it went game-situJim Metcalfe photo ation (with a running clock), Elida completely dominated, St. John’s junior quarterback Alex Clark feels pressured scoring two touchdowns and by an Elida defender during Friday morning’s scrimmage a field goal.

Musketeers down Wildcats in golf DELPHOS — Despite Nick Gallmeier’s 37, the Jefferson boys golf unit fell 172-183 to Fort Jennings in a dual match Friday at the Delphos Country Club.

Clijsters reaches semifinals in Cincinnati
By JOE KAY The Associated Press MASON — Kim Clijsters is turning Cincinnati into her kind of town. The defending U.S. Open champion reached the semifinals at the Cincinnati Open on Friday, beating Italy’s Flavia Pennetta 7-6 (6), 6-4 in oppressive afternoon heat. The fourth-seeded Clijsters will face Serbia’s Ana Ivanovic. No. 10 Maria Sharapova also reached the semifinals, beating France’s Marion Bartoli 6-1, 6-4 in the evening match. She’ll play fellow Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Clijsters is the highest remaining seed. Five of the top eight were eliminated on Thursday. Serena and Venus Williams dropped out with injuries before the tournament began. That left center court to Clijsters, who seems to like the place. Clijsters returned to tennis in Cincinnati last year, reaching the quarterfinals after a 2-year break to start a family and get recharged. The 27-year-old Belgian reached the quarterfinals in Cincinnati and found her touch. A few weeks later, she won the U.S. Open. This year, she took a break from tournament play after Wimbledon and arrived in town hoping to use Cincinnati as a springboard again. So far, the hard courts have been agreeable. Clijsters passed her toughest test of the week, making a few more shots than Pennetta in a match close throughout. She hit a service winner to go up 7-6 in the tie-breaker and Pennetta sailed a forehand wide to settle the sweaty first set. Clijsters went to her seat and squirted cold water over her hair, trying to get a little relief. On-court temperatures have registered 120 degrees the past couple of days, with oppressive humidity that made it tough to breathe after
move to No. 1 in the world for the first time. Bryce Molder, once regarded as a can’t-miss kid when he played on the same Georgia Tech team as Kuchar, made an impressive debut in his first PGA Championship. He made five birdies in a 6-hole stretch and wound up with a 67. That put him in a large group at 5-under 139 that included 19-year-old S.Y. Noh (71), 21-year-old Rory McIlroy (68), short-hitting Zach Johnson (70) and bighitting Dustin Johnson (68). Chad Campbell had another 70 and was alone — at the moment — at 4-under 140. But of the 78 players who had to return at 7 a.m. today to resume the second round — provided there’s no fog — Martin Laird and Francesco Molinari also were at 4 under. Watson looked as though he would make up ground in a hurry. He birdied his first two holes, and had a 5-foot birdie putt on the 12th to make it three in a row and pull within one shot of the lead. He rammed it about 4 feet by and wound up three-putting for bogey. Watson stumbled again on the par-5 16th when his shot out of a bunker caught the lip and he was 3 under for the tournament when he stopped at the turn.
Kuchar is No. 7 in the Ryder Cup standings, and no matter where he winds up when the cut is made Saturday, these were two big days toward securing a spot on his first team. He has called this a “great” year, referring to the eight top 10s, but he has yet to win. Ernie Els began his day with a 5-wood for a second shot into the par-4 15th and ended it with a double bogey on the final hole of his second round for a 74. He was in a large group at 2-under 142, yet found himself hopeful that Woods and the late starters didn’t get off the hook by a storm system that threatened all day. US Women’s Amateur: Danielle Kang defeated Sydnee Michaels on the first hole of a playoff Friday and advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Women’s Amateur. Kang will face Jennifer Kirby, who beat Kristen Park 6 and 4. Stephanie Sherlock, a 2 and 1 winner against Junthima Gulyanamitta, will face Jessica Korda, who eliminated Erynne Lee 4 and 3. Kang, one of two Americans still in contention, had a chance to close her match in regulation but missed a putt and swung her club in disgust. She nailed the green in two on No. 10 immediately afterward for a much smoother finish.

CINCINNATI — Scott Rolen snapped out of a slump with three hits against an ineffective Josh Johnson, helping Edinson Volquez and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Florida Marlins 7-2 on Friday night. Jay Bruce homered for the first time since June 30 and drove in three runs for Cincinnati, which bounced back from an embarrassing 3-game sweep by St. Louis. Joey Votto had two hits and two RBIs. Highly-touted rookie Mike Stanton homered twice for Florida, which had won four straight. Volquez (3-1), in his sixth start since coming back from Tommy John surgery, allowed one run and eight hits in six innings. Johnson (10-5) pitched a season-low 3 2/3 innings while giving up a season-high 10 hits. His ERA went from a baseballbest 1.97 to 2.27. Reds manager Dusty Baker long points. The heat had a lot to do served the first of his 2-game with setting up her semifinal suspension for his part in the bench-clearing brawl between opponent.

Pauley gets first win, Mariners beat Indians 3-2
Tuesday. Bench coach Chris Speier ran the club. The Reds pounced on Johnson, scoring as many runs in the first inning as they had totaled against him in his previous three appearances against Cincinnati. Rolen snapped an 0-for-12 slid with the last of four consecutive first-inning singles, producing two runs. One out later, Bruce’s bouncer up the middle took a bad hop off the glove of diving shortstop Hanley Ramirez and into center field, sending Votto home and making it 3-0. Rolen, the All-Star third baseman, reached on a leadoff double and advanced to third on Jim Edmonds’ grounder to second. Bruce then hit a chopper up the middle and Ramirez came home but Rolen scored on a nifty slide past catcher Ronny Paulino. Bruce led off the fifth with his 11th homer, a 419-foot shot to center field off Taylor Tankersley. Stanton hit his 13th homer and second in two nights with one out in the sixth. He added a 1-out homer to right in the eighth.
plenty of time to get Lopez, who appeared to slow as he rounded third on the hot, humid evening. Gutierrez went to third on the play and scored when Jason Donald couldn’t handle Adam Moore’s 2-out grounder that was hit sharply but only a step or two to the second baseman’s left that gave Seattle a 3-2 lead. Ichiro Suzuki’s speed put Seattle ahead 1-0 in the first. He beat out a slap single to shortstop, stole second, moved to third on a groundout and scored on another groundout, by ex-Indian Russell Branyan. It was Seattle’s first road run in 22 innings. Cleveland tied it in the second on consecutive 2-out doubles by Donald and Gimenez. Branyan opened the Mariners’ fourth with a double high off the left-field wall. He scored on Kotchman’s 2-out single, a high bouncer off a leaping Carmona’s glove. Former Mariners outfielder Choo tied it at 2 with a 2-out RBI single in the fifth. Michael Brantley singled with one out, stole second and scored on Choo’s line drive to center. Carmona gave up two earned runs and nine hits over six innings. He left after yielding a leadoff double to Josh Wilson in the seventh.

The Herald –9
By Bernice Bede Osol
Sunday, Aug. 15, 2010 If you haven’t learned anything else, you’ve figured out that it’s smart to build upon a firm foundation. This will serve you well when you want to start a new endeavor in the year ahead. You’ll make sure your footing is solid before you take a step. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - To your surprise, you’ll have a reservoir of strengths upon which to draw that could help you successfully perform a tedious task or participate in a tough competition. Give it your best. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - When dealing with someone new on a personal level, let your manner put this person at ease. Once s/he senses your sincerity, this individual will feel impelled to treat you similarly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Stabilizing influences will prevail, with recent disruptions dissipating and falling by the wayside. This could be especially prevalent in regards to your financial affairs. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If an important matter comes up that needs your personal attention, disengage yourself from your social involvements with others. They’ll understand and even give you their blessings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Performing at your best might require a great deal of solitude. Don’t hesitate to walk alone when it serves your purpose to do so. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - You might not feel as comfortable in social involvements with new acquaintances as you do engaging in activities with familiar old friends. Don’t be rude, but stick to tried and true pals. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Someone with whom you usually are at odds might find much to admire in you at last. This could be the benchmark for establishing a new relationship. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Try to comprehend the big picture instead of just reviewing a few brushstrokes. You could get yourself so overwhelmed by the details that you fail to see what is right in front of you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Should someone be trying to interest you in something that might require financial involvement, get him/her to lay out the entire plan. Unless you get all the details it should be a no-go. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - If it’s not important who leads, and your mate opts for that role, relegate yourself to being supportive. It’s likely to produce many benefits that you never thought existed. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Do yourself a favor by pushing yourself out of the easy chair, getting away from the television set, and engaging in something physically active. Participating in a stimulating activity outdoors would be perfect. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Being with friends whose exuberance is infectious is a good prescription for having a fun and healthy day. Make every effort possible to avoid being around dullards and dunderheads. Monday, Aug. 16, 2010 Be satisfied with a slow-but-steady growth pattern in the year ahead, especially where your material interests are concerned. If you go after more than what you’re entitled to, you may stall progress instead of making gains. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Be careful about what you pretend to know. Someone could ask for an explanation on that very subject and place you in an extremely embarrassing spot not easily gotten out of. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - In an effort to be kind, you might make a loan to a person who is an extremely poor credit risk, known for not paying his/her bills. Don’t be the underwriter of an unworthy person. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - If you are exposed to someone who talks louder and longer than anybody else, remember that it doesn’t mean this person’s judgment is better than yours. Stand your ground if you think you’re right. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) When you do little and expect a lot, disappointment is more than likely to be the end result. What you receive will be commensurate to the service you render or the work you perform. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You truly enjoy mingling with people from all walks of life, but now you’re likely to be more comfortable in the company of close friends. Avoid crowded gatherings if you can. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - When meeting some friends or business acquaintances, it’s best to be meticulous regarding who is included. Inviting someone who doesn’t easily fit in with the others will make everyone feel uncomfortable. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - If you’re too self-involved, you aren’t likely to be attuned to your listeners. Take care not to gore a sacred cow or dominate conversation with topics that only appeal to you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) There’s a good chance you could snatch defeat form the jaws of success if you’re not careful. Be on guard against inclinations to oversell or turn a good deal into a bummer. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - Even though there is nothing wrong with your judgment, you might think the opposite. As a result, you’re likely to let others who can’t even think for themselves reason things out for you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - If you accidentally blurt out something that is better left unsaid, don’t call attention to your blunder by trying to clarify your comments. Chances are, you’ll only make things worse. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Don’t ignore someone who likes you and has been nice to you in order to fawn over a new acquaintance who hasn’t yet given his/her friendship. Hurt feelings will kill the good thing you had going. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - If you’re a bit lackadaisical about things, both your motivation and initiative could break down rather easily for you at this time. Needless to say, it isn’t likely that you’ll achieve any of your objectives.

Police: Israeli also suspect in stabbing in Israel
By DIAA HADID The Associated Press RAMLE, Israel — The man accused of going on a three-state stabbing spree in the United States was also a suspect in a stabbing near his hometown in Israel. But what drove Elias Abuelazam remains a mystery: Relatives describe a shy man from a respected family who had recently become despondent. Profilers say the case is baffling because, despite five deaths, murder did not appear to be the goal. Abuelazam is suspected of attacking people in Michigan, Ohio and Virginia, leaving 13 people wounded in addition to the dead. He was arrested Wednesday in Atlanta as he prepared to board a flight to his native Israel, where relatives said he lived until his family sent him to the U.S. when he was 18. The 33-year-old man appeared briefly Friday in an Atlanta courtroom and agreed to return to Michigan to face an attempted murder charge in one of the attacks — a July 27 stabbing in Flint, Mich., that put the victim in the hospital for a week. Authorities said more charges were expected in the three states. A family member in this poverty-stricken community said Abuelazam had become unhappy about his personal life in recent months. And others in the Arab neighborhood where he grew up expressed shock that the man they knew could be a suspect in the gruesome attacks. “I wouldn’t believe it even if I saw it with my own eyes,” said Abuelazam’s 49-year-old cousin, also named Elias Abuelazam. He said that when his cousin last visited earlier this year, he was tense, unhappy and unsure what to do with his life. The younger Abuelazam said he wanted to get married and settle down in Israel. “He seemed confused,” the cousin said. But he said suggestions that Abuelazam was a killer were “malicious rumors.” He said news of the arrest had devastated Abuelazam’s mother, who was excitedly waiting for a text message to pick her son up at the airport when she heard the news. “She couldn’t stand up ... She was hysterical,” he said. During Friday’s court hearing, Abuelazam was expressionless as he responded to questions from the judge. He initially said he wanted to stay in Georgia. But the judge told him he would have to return to Michigan if he wanted to fight the allegations. After the judge explained the process further, Abuelazam agreed to waive his extradition rights and go back to Michigan. “All right, then I’ll do so,” he said. “It sounds more logical to go right now than in 90 days.” Back in Israel, the family’s modest twostory stone home, in a Christian section of Ramle’s historic old city, remained shuttered and dark on Friday, and Abuelazams’ mother, Hiam, was holed up inside. In a brief radio interview, she described her son as a “religious, God-fearing man” and said she refused to believe he was a killer. However, Israeli police said Abuelazam was a suspect in a stabbing attack early this year, although charges were never pressed. A senior police commander said Abuelazam was believed to have stabbed a close acquaintance in the face with a screwdriver during an argument in a parked car about six months ago. The commander said police dropped the case because the victim refused to cooperate with investigators. He said Israeli police would request samples of Abuelazam’s DNA to investigate unsolved stabbings in the Ramle area. The city is known as a violent hot spot of drug activity. The commander spoke on condition of anonymity because he was barred by police rules from speaking to the media. The alleged victim in the attack, Ziad Shahin, denied being assaulted by Abuelazam but had a large scar from his right ear to his throat. Speaking outside his candy store in Ramle, Shahin said he was born with the mark. Ramle’s roughly 3,000-member Arab Christian community is tight-knit, and residents were extremely cautious about discussing Abuelazam’s past. Acquaintances said Abuelazam’s father died of illness when he was a baby, and that he was raised by his single mother and four sisters. The family owned a grocery store and two other shops in town, and the mother was well regarded. Abuelazam, a member of Ramle’s Greek Orthodox community, attended two prestigious Catholic schools, they said. Abuelazam’s most recent visit came earlier this year, and he returned to the U.S. in the spring, shortly before the stabbing spree began in Flint, with the attacker approaching men on lonely roads at night and asking for directions or help with a broken-down car. Then he would pull out a knife, plunge it into his victim and speed away. All but four of the 18 attacks occurred the Flint area. The others were in Leesburg, Va., and Toledo, Ohio. In one case, the attacker used a hammer. The youngest victim was 15; the oldest 67. At least 15 victims were black, although there’s no evidence that race played a role, authorities said. A motive was not known. Robert Keppel, a retired Washington state
homicide detective who profiles serial killers, said it’s rare for someone to attack males exclusively. Whoever is responsible for the 18 attacks, “he’s just getting off on stabbing people. He’s not guaranteeing that they die,” said Keppel, who investigated the Ted Bundy homicides in the Pacific Northwest in the 1970s. “For some reason, the satisfaction is just in the action of the stabbings,” Keppel said. “He’s only turned on by the act of the approach and the initial stabbing. He’s got some hang-ups. ... He’s a rare killer among rare killers.” A tip led police this week to a market outside Flint where Abuelazam had worked for a month. Investigators talked to employees, and a store video showed that he matched the description of the man wanted by authorities. But Abuelazam was gone: He told people he was off to Virginia and had not been seen since his Aug. 1 shift. Police in Arlington, Va., stopped him for a traffic offense Aug. 5 and arrested him on a 2008 misdemeanor assault charge from Leesburg, Va., where he had lived and worked in the mental-health field. A hammer and a knife were found inside the Chevrolet Blazer, which was returned to him after his brief detention. There was no national alert for Abuelazam or his vehicle. Virginia authorities “had no idea at that time that he was involved in these crimes,” Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton in Michigan said. Abuelazam eventually returned to Michigan, obtained a $3,000 airline ticket to Tel Aviv from his uncle and made it as far as the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta, where officers snatched the man in flip-flops and shorts after he was paged over the intercom.
Bike sold for $5 in Ky. once belonged to Floyd Landis
By JEFFREY McMURRAY The Associated Press LEXINGTON, Ky. — The bicycle had two flat tires, but Greg Estes figured the $5 asking price still made it a great bargain at a yard sale. Little did he know just how great. Estes checked on the bike’s origin after buying it in Owenton this month. He was shocked to learn it may be worth as much as $8,000 and was custom built for cycling star Floyd Landis, who used it in the 2007 Leadville 100, a mountain bike race in Colorado. Landis crashed but finished second in that race, which was shortly after his victory in the 2006 Tour de France, a win since vacated due to doping charges. “It’s a Cadillac of bicycles, that’s for sure,” said Estes, 38, of Owenton. “It’s just unreal how good it rides.” A sticker on the bike told him it was custom built by Cyco-Path Bicycles out of Temecula, Calif., near San Diego. Store manager Loren Foley said he was stunned when Estes started describing the parts, knowing the company had made only one such model and they remembered it well considering Landis’ celebrity at the time. Foley dug up photographs of the Colorado race to be sure and recognized Landis’ crashed bicycle as identical to the model Estes was describing. “It’s even got the same under-the-seat gear bag, the same tires,” Foley said. “It’s definitely the same bike.” As for value, Foley said Estes could expect to collect $5,500 to $6,000 for it on the open market — maybe quite a bit more if he gets actual value or a premium because it once belonged to a celebrity. For fun, Estes put the bike in his own yard sale, replacing the $5 price tag with a $6,000 one. He got no takers, but a lot of perplexed looks.

FDA OKs new, five-day emergency contraceptive
BY MATTHEW PERRONE The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Federal health officials on Friday approved a new type of morning-after contraceptive that works longer than the current leading drug on the market. The pill ella from HRA Pharma reduces the chance of pregnancy up to five days after sex. Plan B, the most widely used emergency contraceptive pill, begins losing its ability to prevent pregnancy within three days of sex. The Food and Drug Administration approved the drug Friday as a prescriptiononly birth control option. The ruling clears the way for U.S. sales of the drug, which is already approved in Europe. Morristown, N.J.-based Watson Pharmaceuticals will market the drug in the U.S. under an agreement with HRA. Watson said it will launch the pill in the fourth quarter. Studies of ella by its manufacturer showed the drug prevented pregnancies longer and more consistently than Plan B. In a head-to-head trial between the two drugs, women who took ella had a 1.8 percent chance of becoming pregnant, while women who took Plan B had a 2.6 percent chance. Experts tracked nearly 1,700 women who randomly received one of the two pills within three to five days of having unprotected sex. Plan B is made by Teva Pharmaceuticals and is also marketed in several generic versions.
