Cruise tragedy conjures Titanic memories
By TAMARA LUSH The Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. — The first interviews of survivors — and the first impressions of people across the world — of the ill-fated Costa Concordia cruise liner that ran aground and tipped over in Italy are yielding predictable comparisons to another tragedy. “Have you seen ‘Titanic’? That’s exactly what it was,” said Valeria Ananias, a 31-year-old Los Angeles schoolteacher aboard the ship who crawled along nearly vertical hallways and stairwells in a desperate attempt to reach rescue boats. Are such comparisons to a 100-year-old tragedy fair? Accurate? It seems that the world views the Concordia through a prism of fact, myth and fantasy that surrounds the Titanic, largely because of the popular movie that came out in 1997 and is being re-released in 3D this year. Just ask the handful of people visiting “Titanic the Experience,” a tour through recovered artifacts and replicas of the famed ship in Orlando. “When I saw the Concordia on the news this morning, this is what I thought about,” said Tom Keill, a Pennsylvania tourist who took the Titanic tour Sunday morning. He and his family shuffled past rooms that recreated firstclass cabins, past the lavish replica staircase, past an actual deck chair that once sat on the vessel. (The restrooms in the museum are described by staff as being “through the gift shop, behind the wall and past the iceberg.”) Keill, like virtually everyone who has seen the movie, has thought about what they would have done during such a disaster — and now the Concordia allows us to update and refresh those thoughts. The vessel hit a reef or rock just off the coast of Italy, leaving five people dead and sending hundreds more searching for a way to escape as the boat tipped. Authorities said 15 people remain unaccounted for. “It looked like it was sheer panic on the Concordia,” said Keill, whose two young sons are “really into” Titanic history, which is why the family visited the exhibit while on vacation. His son, 6-year-old Tyler Keill, was a bit more philosophical after walking past a piece of the Titanic’s hull and a large piece of white frost meant to replicate the iceberg that the Titanic struck. “It’s really sad that the Titanic is history,” Tyler said to his mom while in the gift shop that sells Titanic replica china, jewelry and 100th anniversary mugs. “But life goes on and we learn from our past.” But have we?

Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869

Delphos, Ohio Concordia have many similarities. The Titanic was the biggest ship built to date in England at that time — and the Concordia was the biggest ship built so far in Italy. One crashed into an iceberg, the other, a reef or rock. Christened in 2006, the Concordia was the largest and most luxurious in the Costa cruise fleet, boasting bars, restaurants, a gym, large spa and several lavish suites. In its day, the Titanic had similar amenities — although there were more severe class differences on the Titanic, and the chasm between firstand third-class passengers See CRUISE, page 3A

Natural gas price plunge aids families, businesses
By JONATHAN FAHEY The Associated Press NEW YORK — The price of natural gas is plummeting at a pace that has caught even the experts off guard. A 35 percent collapse in the futures price over the past year has been a boon to homeowners who use natural gas for heat and appliances and to manufacturers who power their factories and make chemicals and materials with it. The country is flush with natural gas as a result of new drilling techniques that have enabled energy companies to tap vast supplies that were out of reach not so long ago. The country’s natural gas surplus has been growing even as the country burns record amounts. This winter’s warm weather slowed the growth in demand, however, and created a glut. In the Northeast, December was the fourth warmest in the last 117 years. Winter supplies are 17 percent above their five-year average. The natural gas futures price fell 13 percent last week, to $2.67 per 1,000 cubic feet. That’s the lowest winter-time level in a decade. “The market has been overwhelmed with gas,” says Anthony Yuen, a commodities analyst at Citibank. He and other analysts expect the price to average near $3 for all of 2012. If the weather stays mild, the price could even dip below $2, a level not seen since 2002. Cheap natural gas is mainly a good thing for the economy: — More than half of U.S. households use natural gas for heat, and a quarter of the nation’s electricity is made from it. Falling heating and electric costs are offsetting the impact of high gasoline prices and enabling families and small businesses to spend on other things. Residential gas and electric customers are saving roughly $200 a year, according to a study by Navigant Consulting. — For companies that

make plastics, fertilizer and other chemicals derived from natural gas, the falling prices are nothing short of a windfall. The same goes for makers of products from steel to bricks to beer. All use a lot of natural gas to heat their furnaces. U.S. manufacturers are becoming more competitive globally as a result of the country’s cheap natural gas, industry officials say.

Unwanted prescriptions to be taken back
By ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor VAN WERT — After the success of three previous efforts, the Van Wert County Sheriff’s Office is taking part in the next National Take Back Initiative to get unused prescription drugs off the street. Sheriff Stan D. Owens stated that anyone with prescription medication that is not needed can drop it off at the sheriff’s office at 113 N. Market St. in Van Wert. The dispatcher in the lobby will collect the medication for proper disposal. The collections run through April 28. According to a 2009 survey on drug use, more than seven million persons in this country abuse prescription medication. The Partnership for a Drug Free America states that each day approximately 2,500 teens use these prescription drugs to get high for the first time. These abused drugs can be found in many home medicine cabinets, as

A Cloverdale man was electrocuted by a downed power line early Saturday morning after he left his home and was attempting to assist a crash victim. Dylan Brinkman, 25, of Delphos was traveling north on S.R. 114 when he traveled off the east side of the roadway, over-corrected and slid off the west side of the road, striking a power pole and warning sign. The crash snapped the pole and caused the power lines to come down along the edge of the roadway. Brinkman exited the vehicle and began to walk away from the scene. The State Highway Patrol said 42-year-old Michael

well as taken from family and friends. The National Take Back Initiative was created to address this problem. This vital safety and public health issue was taken on for the first time with the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Sept. 25, 2010. That effort saw 121 tons of pills turned in at around 3,000 participating law enforcement agencies across the country. This will be the fourth such effort. In the three previous initiatives nearly 500 tons of pills were taken back. Approximately 5,327 state and local law enforcement agencies have been a part of the program. While national efforts have concentrated on a single day for turning in drugs, Owens has expanded the time frame when a person can take part in the initiative. During the collection period last March and April, Owens explained his office gets questions about pill disposal all the time, so he did not want to restrict the collection to just one day.

Man arrested on warrant

Tools, drugs taken from vehicle

At 3:07 p.m. on Saturday, while on routine patrol, Delphos Police came into contact with Andrew Dinkins, 23, of Delphos, at which time officers Dinkins arrested Dinkins on an active arrest warrant. The warrant was issued out of Allen County on a contempt of court charge, Dinkins was turned over to deputies from the Allen County Sheriff’s Department.

Feldman of Cloverdale drove to the crash site after his nearby home briefly lost power early Saturday. Troopers said Feldman approached the area where the pole had snapped, dropping power lines, and stepped on a live wire. They said he fell on the wire. Feldman was pronounced dead on the scene by Assistant Putnam County Coroner Dr. Mandy Klass. The traffic accident remains under investigation by the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Speed and alcohol are contributing factors; weather and road conditions were not a major factor, according to the post.

Tire on vehicle damaged

At 4:51 p.m. on Friday, Delphos Police were called to the 300 block of West Fourth Street in reference to a theft from a motor vehicle complaint. Upon officers’ arrival, the victim stated that someone gained entry into a vehicle parked at a residence in that area, the victim stated that power tools and prescription drugs were taken from inside the vehicle.

Aug. 19, 1986-Jan. 13, 2012 Andrew J. Teman, 25, died at 9:30 a.m. Friday at St. Rita’s Medical Center. He was born Aug. 19, 1986, in Van Wert to Michael Teman and Kelly (Jaime) Sterling Baeza, of Delphos, who survive. Survivors also include a son, Noah Andrew Teman of Delphos; a brother, Cody Teman of Delphos; a stepbrother, Mitchell Teman; and maternal grandparents, Lonnie (Jeannette) Sterling of Delphos. He was preceded in death by paternal grandparents Paul and Joyce Teman; and paternal great grandmother Elizabeth Metzger. Mr. Teman was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan and loved spending time with his son. He was a member of Delphos Wesleyan Church, where he was a trustee on the church board. He was a graduate of Jefferson High School and worked at Lakeview Farms. Services will begin at 11 a.m. Thursday at Harter and Schier Memorial Chapel, the Revs. Wayne Prater and Michael Shaffer officiating. Burial will be in Ridge Cemetery. Friends may call from 2-8 p.m. Wednesday and one hour prior to the service Thursday at the funeral home. Memorial contributions may be made to his son, Noah, in care of Kelly.

The Herald –3A


(Continued from page 1A)


With electricity prices falling, the profits of all electric power producers — whether they rely on coal, nuclear or wind — are shrinking. Companies that drill solely for natural gas are earning less these days, too. That’s prompting some to hunt instead for oil, whose price is near $100 a barrel. Still, drillers aren’t reducing natural gas production as much as they would have during previous periods of low prices. They’ve found ways to produce the fuel at much lower cost so they can be profitable at much lower prices. And, in many cases, natural gas is a byproduct of oil drilling, which is so profitable that companies are going after every barrel they can find. Analysts say in some oil and gas fields, drillers could give the gas away and still be hugely profitable just from selling the oil. The benefit of falling natural gas prices to homeowners is not as big as a major drop in oil and gasoline prices would provide. The average household’s annual gasoline bill is about $4,000, roughly double the average annual gas and electric bill. Also, the fuel cost is only half of a customer’s bill. The rest is transmission and delivery charges, which don’t change along with fuel prices. Homeowners are paying $10.18 per 1,000 cubic feet of gas on average, including transmission and delivery charges, according to the Energy Information Administration. Over a year, a customer will burn an average of 75,000 cubic feet, or about $760 worth.

840,000 students getting school lunch aid
COLUMBUS (AP) — More than 840,000 students are getting subsidized meals at school this year, setting a record high, according to new data from the Ohio Department of Education. That means nearly half of Ohio children in school are getting free or reducedprice lunches, The Columbus Dispatch reported Sunday. The data show the percentage of students receiving lunch aid has climbed from just under 29 percent a decade ago to about 45 percent this school year. Students can qualify for aid through the federal lunch program based on family income, making the data a good indicator of poverty or economic well-being among families with schoolchildren. Students can become eligible for free meals if their annual household income is less than 130 percent of the federal poverty level, or about $29,0000 for a family of four. Students whose families earn up to 185 percent of the poverty level, or about $41,300, can get reduced-cost lunches. The number of students taking advantage of those provisions has increased as the recession battered family budgets when people lost jobs or income, the newspaper reported. Some school districts have responded by adding free or reduced-price breakfasts at school or offering other meals on weekends and during summer break. In the Columbus area, much of the increased participation has occurred in the




suburbs as some middle-class families found their income reduced for various reasons. Since 2001, the percentage of students in the program has at least tripled in eight suburban districts, the newspaper said. In Worthington, for example, one in 20 students were enrolled in the program a decade ago. Today it’s one in four. “It’s becoming a much more diverse community both socioeconomically and ethnically,” Assistant Superintendent Trent Bowers said. That’s reflected in the number of people seeking help from the Worthington Food Pantry & Resource Center, which opened two years ago and now serves 300 families a month.

was enforced by class-only eating, sitting and mingling areas. In today’s cruising world, the passengers in the $199 cabins on the weekend cruises out of Miami can, and do, sun themselves alongside the folks in the $3,000 suites. The Concordia was slightly larger (952 feet to the Titanic’s 883 feet) and both had a top speed of 23 knots. Ominously, both had issues with their christening, and believers in superstition may attribute the ships’ tragedies to it. Before a ship’s maiden voy-

age, it’s common for a dignitary to “christen” the vessel by breaking a bottle of champagne on the hull for good luck. The Titanic was never christened. The Concordia was christened during a ceremony when the ship came online, but the champagne bottle never broke. After each tragedy, people wondered whether the lack of a proper christening was a bad omen. But then there are the differences. The Titanic had 2,207 people on board; the Concordia about 4,200. The Titanic was much smaller: 46,328 tons compared with the Concordia’s

114,500 tons. And of course, there were the safety measures developed over a century to ensure safety. As was detailed during the hour-long tour of “Titanic: The Experience” in Orlando — complete with a guide dressed in a Victorian-looking peacoat and hat — the radio operators aboard the ship didn’t relay what they thought were nonessential messages about icebergs to the ship’s officers. Meanwhile, people aboard the ship didn’t panic because the ship listed only a few degrees.

Ellinger noted that serious training is about to begin. “I’ve spend some time with Paul [Oechsle] but Monday, we are really going to hit it hard. Paul was great enough to give me some time to show me what’s going on and how to make it successful,” stated Ellinger. The next edition of the Van Wert County Fair is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 29 - Sept. 3, with the same six-day format as the 2011. But as Ellinger stressed, it is not just the Van Wert County Fair. “Hopefully we’ll be getting more folks to come enjoy the fair and enjoy the other events we are having out there,” he

shared. “It’s more than the one week of the fair. We’re concerned about the whole year. We want to give people the opportunity to come out there and enjoy themselves and be part of the community. I’m looking forward to the Rally in the Corn event that will be happening this summer. Everyone is really excited about that. And I want to make sure people know all about the other events at the fairgrounds too.” Aside from the fair, other festivals and events are held on the fairgrounds, including Old Fashioned Farmers Days, the Van Wert Rib Cook-Off, and Van Wert Apple Festival, and also portions of the Peony Festival and the Crossroads Festival.

Legend or flawed man? King’s image evolving
By BRETT ZONGKER and SAMANTHA GROSS Associated Press WASHINGTON — On the National Mall in Washington, Martin Luther King Jr. is a towering, heroic figure carved in stone. On the Broadway stage, he’s a living, breathing man who chain smokes, sips liquor and occasionally curses. As Americans honor King’s memory 44 years after he was assassinated, the image of the slain civil rights leader is evolving. The new King memorial, which opened in August in the nation’s capital, celebrates the ideals King espoused. Quotations from his speeches and writings conjure memories of his message, and a 30-foot-tall sculpture depicts King emerging as a “stone of hope” from a “mountain of despair,” a design inspired by a line of his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Some gaze upon this figure in silence. Some smile and pull out cell phone cameras. Others chat about how closely the statue resembles King. And some are moved to tears. “Just all that this man did so that we could do anything and be anything,” said Brandolyn Brown, 26, of Cheraw, S.C., who visited the memorial Saturday with her aunt and cousin. “I know it took a lot more By PHILIP ELLIOTT and KASIE HUNT Associated Press than him to get to where we are, but he was a big part of the movement.” Brown’s aunt, Gloria Drake, 60, of Cheraw, S.C., said she remembers King almost as though he was Moses leading his people to the promised land, even when there were so many reasons to doubt things would get better in an era of segregated buses, schools and lunch counters. “It was really just hostile,” she said. “... And then we had a man that comes to tell us things are going to be better.” “Don’t be mad, don’t be angry,” she recalled King’s message. “Just come together in peace.” They said King’s lasting legacy is the reality of equality and now having a black president. Drake said President Barack Obama reminds her of King with his “calmness” even in the face of anger. Christine Redman, 37, visited the memorial with her husband, James Redman, 40, and their young son and daughter. She said they feel a personal connection to King. “We’re a mixed family, and we know that without a lot of the trials he went through to help end segregation and help the races to become one, we would not be able to have the freedoms to love who we want t and be accepted in the world,” she said. Her son, 8-year-old Tyler, echoed his mom: “And be who we want to be.”

Obama wants to bring jobs home

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is promoting his efforts to make government more efficient and to persuade companies to bring jobs back to the U.S. from overseas. He rolled out those election-year ideas last week and used his radio and Internet address over the weekend to urge Congress and the private sector to get on board. “Right now, we have a 21st century economy, but we’ve still got a government organized for the 20th century,” Obama said. “Over the years, the needs of Americans have changed, but our government has not. In fact, it’s gotten even more complex. And that has to change.” On government reorganization, Obama wants a guarantee from Congress that he could get a vote within 90 days on any idea to consolidate federal agencies, provided his plan saves money and cuts the government. His first order of business would be to merge six major trade and commerce agencies into one, eliminating the Commerce Department, among others. The proposal is a challenge to congressional Republicans because it embraces the traditional GOP goal of smaller government. “These changes will make it easier for small-business owners to get the loans and support they need to sell their products around the world,” he said. Obama is also promising new tax incentives for businesses that bring jobs to the U.S. instead of shipping them overseas, and he wants to eliminate tax breaks for companies that outsource. “You’ve heard of outsourcing. Well, this is insourcing,” said Obama. “And in this make or break moment for the middle class and those working to get into the middle

Jon Huntsman to quit Republican presidential race
WASHINGTON — Jon Huntsman will withdraw today from the race for the Republican presidential nomination, his campaign manager told The Associated Press on Sunday. Campaign manager Matt David said Huntsman will announce his withdrawal at an event in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Huntsman will endorse Mitt Romney, whom he believes is the best candidate to beat President Barack Obama in November, campaign officials said. The former Utah governor placed third in last week’s New Hampshire primary despite devoting most of his campaign resources to the state. He had already acknowledged that expectations for him in South Carolina’s primary this week will be “very low.” Word of the Huntsman withdrawal came on the same day The State, South Carolina’s largest newspaper, endorsed him for president. The endorsement said there were “two sensible, experienced grownups in the race,” referring to Romney and Huntsman. But it said Huntsman “is more principled, has a far more impressive resume and offers a significantly more important message.” Although Huntsman was viewed as having little traction in South Carolina, his endorsement of Romney could give the former Massachusetts governor, who leads in state polls, even more of the look of inevitability. The move comes as pressure has been increasing on Texas Gov. Rick Perry to leave the race to allow South Carolina’s influential social conservatives to unify behind either former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum or former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Huntsman’s resume suggested he could be a major contender for the GOP nomination: businessman, diplomat, governor, veteran of four presidential administrations, an expert on China and on foreign trade. With a personal fortune based on his family’s global chemical company, he could

The family tries to celebrate King’s birthday by finding a way to serve others, they said. They were thinking about volunteering at a food pantry or donating toys for needy kids. When he thinks of King, James Redman said he thinks of hope. Still, he said, King’s legacy is lost on many. “Dr. King was about love and about cooperation and compromise and working together,” he said. “We don’t see a whole lot of that in our leaders. We don’t see a whole lot of it in our citizenry.” On Broadway, theatergoers are seeing a different version of King — one that is more man than legend. The realism was refreshing for Donya Fairfax, who marveled after leaving a matinee of “The Mountaintop” that she had never really thought of King cursing, as actor Samuel L. Jackson does while portraying King in the play. “He was human and not someone who was above fault,” said the 48-year-old, visiting from Los Angeles. “He cursed. He did things that people do behind closed doors. He was regular.” For some, such a portrayal would seem to chip away at King’s memory. But for Natalie Pertz, who at 20 has come to know King only through the gauzy view of history, it seemed a precious reminder that it is not beyond the reach of the ordinary and the flawed to effect change.

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON — I can’t speak for Michelle Obama, but call me an angry white woman. If the first lady isn’t angry, she certainly has every right to be. Like every woman I know, black or white, I’ve watched Mrs. Obama with respect, admiration and arm-envy. Every woman. We talk about her unique role in American history, and we are proud and impressed. I’ve interviewed a former first lady’s chief of staff, various Republican operatives, former staffers for previous presidents, and without exception, they all say the same thing: “I admire her so much.” Thus, the recent discussion about Mrs. Obama’s manner and temperament, thanks to Jodi Kantor’s new book, “The Obamas,” is maddening. Yet again, the first lady is being characterized as the thing women can never be — angry. Heaven forbid she should butt heads with that pussycat Rahm Emanuel, as Kantor reports. Who doesn’t butt heads with Emanuel? Head-butting is his default mode. Whether or not factually true, this and other minor third-party anecdotes were enough to resurrect the angry-woman mantra that began when Barack Obama started his run for president. Responding to the controversy, Mrs. Obama, who usu-

Angry women

be a late entry into the nomination contest without necessarily hobbling his campaign. Yet Huntsman was almost invisible in a race often dominated by Romney, a fellow Mormon. One reason was timing. For months, Romney and other declared or expected-to-declare candidates drew media attention and wooed voters in early primary states. Huntsman, meanwhile, was half a world away, serving as ambassador to China until he resigned in late April. Nearly two more months would pass before his kickoff speech on June 22 in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty. To distinguish his candidacy in a crowded field, Huntsman positioned himself as a tax-cutting, budget-balancing chief executive and former business executive who could rise above partisan politics. That would prove to be a hard sell to the conservatives dominating the early voting contests, especially in an election cycle marked by bitter divisions between Republicans and Democrats and a boiling antipathy for President Barack Obama.


Point of View
ally keeps to herself and her family, came out to publicly defend herself against the angry-black-woman stereotype. Speaking to CBS’ Gayle King, she said, “I guess it’s more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman — you know? But that’s been an image that people have tried to paint of me since, you know, the day Barack announced, that I’m some angry black woman.” I guess it is more interesting, but no less infuriating. The difficulty, of course, is finding people who have used those precise words — “angry black woman.” By midday Friday, if you Googled “angry black woman,” 65 million links popped up, many including the name Michelle Obama. Yet most direct quotes related to the first lady referred to an “angry woman,” rather than an “angry black woman.” Is the racial aspect of the criticism an extrapolation of Mrs. Obama and her defenders? It might be but for the fact that those calling her angry happen to be white.

On Thursday, Fox News’ Sean Hannity asked his show’s panel if they knew any “prominent” person who used those words. The panelists, who clearly didn’t want to say anything critical of the first lady, couldn’t produce a name. Indeed, it may be that this trope has evolved from the swamp of the blogosphere, where anonymous trolls say despicable things from the cowardly comfort of their subterranean wormholes. It isn’t hard to find evidence of racial undertones in these anonymous missives, one of which materialized in my inbox recently. Comment threads on right-wing blogs frequently feature hateful, racist remarks about the first lady. They don’t deserve a pica of my column space, but suffice to say, they need no translation. Meanwhile, what isn’t said explicitly by “prominent” people is often implied. Attempting to prod his guests into saying something negative about Mrs. Obama, Hannity pulled out the old clip of Michelle saying that she was proud of her country for the first time when her husband was running for the Democratic Party’s nomination. This has been played and replayed thousands of times and presented as evidence that Mrs. Obama doesn’t really love her country, that

she wasn’t proud of it until her husband was running for president. So what? These perhaps were not the best words for a future first lady, but I have no trouble understanding how she felt in that moment. It may be easy for fortunate whites to say they’ve always been proud of America, though they’re probably lying. It is less easy for someone whose ancestors were slaves, and whose own parents remember when blacks couldn’t vote and were lynched for trying in some parts of the country. Given that history, one can forgive a few ill-chosen words uttered in an emotional moment. But no. Mrs. Obama has been paying for her remarks ever since. If she isn’t smiling at the camera or looking riveted by every instant of her public life, she’s an angry woman. Despite the pain these critiques cause Mrs. Obama and other African-American women who identify with her, I do believe that these feelings are not particularly widespread. Most see the first lady as she is: a beautiful, gracious, intelligent, elegant, devoted wife and mother of whom we can be proud. Those who insult her insult us all and, yes, we should be angry.

Raiders get third straight win, roll past Jefferson
For The Delphos Herald

Big Green boys fall to Rockets
By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald btzweber@bright.net PANDORA — Saturday night pitted two Putnam County League boys hardwood teams that have struggled to score points in the first half of the season as Ottoville entered the contest 3-7 and homestanding Pandora-Gilboa 2-7. The host Rockets threw a first-quarter shutout and controlled the second half to emerge with a 43-29 victory. Both teams started out the game very sluggish on the offensive end, especially the Big Green. Ottoville did not attempt its first shot until the 4:00 mark (a 3-pointer from Bryan Hohlbein), which missed the target. The Rockets were not burning up the nets, either, as they only managed six points for the quarter. However, the story for the Rockets was that they held their opposition to zero points in the quarter. Ottoville finished the quarter 0-5 from the field and also committed five turnovers. The basket continued to have a lid on it for the Big Green until the 4:02 mark of the second quarter when 6-2 sophomore Luke Schimmoeller was fouled sending him to the line for two shots and making both attempts to get the Big Green on the scoreboard. A quick steal and deep 3-pointer from Hohlbein brought Ottoville back to only trailing 11-5 with 3:30 to play.

The Big Green outscored the Rockets 15-8 in the quarter and only committed one turnover compared to the Rockets’ five. As the second half began, it was very evident from both teams that points were going to be hard to come by. Both were playing very good defense but not until the 1:30 mark with a 3-pointer by P-G’s Seth Schmenk did the lead expand more than two points for either side. Again, as was the case with the first half, Abe Basinger was fouled trying a long trey, sending him to the line for three shots. He connected on two to give the Rockets a 25-20 lead after three quarters. As the teams broke huddle to start the fourth quarter, the Rockets were very energized with what had happened at the end of the third. A 7-0 spurt to start the quarter expanded their lead to 32-20 before 5-10 junior Derek Schimmoeller made a deuce with 4:50 to go in the game. The Rockets started to take the air out of the ball, forcing the Big Green to foul the rest of the way, and sealed their third victory and first PCL win of the year over the Big Green.

Jays use strong 1st half to deal with Lady Titans
DELPHOS — OttawaGlandorf’s girls basketball team played St. John’s even in the second half Saturday afternoon, even outscoring the host Lady Blue Jays 22-20 in those 16 minutes. It was the first half that decided matters as the Blue Jays won those 16 minutes 32-12 en route to a 52-34 nonconference hardwood victory over the youthful Lady Titans. The one stat that stands out — when all the other ones were relatively equal — was the shooting: St. John’s (9-3) connected on 17-of-41 tries — including 6-of-18 beyond the arc (33.3%) — for 41.5 percent, while the Lady Titans (3-8) were a cold 12-of-47 overall — 1-of-11 trifectas (9.1%) — for 25.5 percent. “We really came out playing very well the first half. We had that inside-outside combination working, we moved the ball and made the extra pass,” St. John’s mentor Dan Grothouse began. “When they doubled and even tripled our post, we kicked it out to some opener shooters, they set their feet well and hit some 3s. Defensively, we were solid between our man and zone. We forced some turnovers and we did a nice job on the boards. We did a lot of things well the first half and even into the second half.” On the other end, Lady Titan coach Lori Smith wasn’t nearly as happy. The Jays used their more experienced crew to get off quickly in the first stanza. Senior guard Courtney Grothouse (16 markers — 4 bombs, 8 assists, 3 thefts) dropped in a trio of triples in the canto, while junior forward Katie Vorst (8 counters, 9 boards, 4 dimes) netted four of her markers inside. The Jays took advantage of O-G’s poor shooting early (1-of-9) and four turnovers (16 for the afternoon versus 15 of their own) in building up their lead. Triples by sophomore Erica Saine (1:01) from the left corner and Grothouse (18 ticks) from the left wing — sandwiched around a pair of tosses by O-G senior Alyssa Ebbeskotte at 43 seconds — finished off the opener with an 18-4 Blue and Gold lead.

Bulldogs, Vikings split PCL cage matchups
By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald zsportslive@yahoo.com
COLUMBUS GROVE — Columbus Grove and Leipsic held a day-night Putnam County League basketball doubleheader at Columbus Grove Saturday. The host Bulldogs dominated the boys contest 82-51 in the nightcap, while the Lady Vikings grabbed the afternoon affair 52-33. In the second contest, the Vikings had been averaging nearly 80 points a game but had not given up that many points until this night. The Bulldogs used a run-and-gun, come-inthrough-the-back-door style of game and before the Vikings even knew what had happened, the hosts had ran off a 13-0 run on their way to throttling their foe. Connor Kohls had just set the school record for 3-pointers against Fort Jennings and looked as if he was attempting to break it with three from long range in the first quarter as the Bulldogs opened up a 20-8 lead with 3:04 to go. The aforementioned Kohls led all scorers with 18 points, while three other Bulldogs reached double figures: Jordan Travis (5 triples) and Derek Rieman 16 and Caleb Grothaus 10. Travis and Rieman also accounted for a double-double, pulling down 10 rebounds each. The hosts shot 34-of-56 from the field (60.7%), 63 percent in the first half. The Vikings finished the game hitting an uncharacteristic 16-of-53 from

Jays win small-school CIT
The Delphos Herald CINCINNATI — The St. John’s wrestling team won the small-school team title at the Catholic Invitational Tournament held at Cincinnati Elder Saturday and Sunday for the first time ever and finished 8th overall (30 teams), also finishing in the top 10 overall for the first time. The Jays were led by senior 220-pound runner-up Adam Haunhorst, who won a semifinal match over returning state runner-up Kennedy Smith from St. Peter Bedford Chanel on an illegal slam that injured him and ended his day. Haunhorst was up 5-1 in the first period. “Adam’s been wrestling extremely well all year and had the state runner-up in trouble,” coach Derek Sterling noted. In 5th place was senior Logan Heiing at 195. “He ran into some great competition today, losing a close 4-3 match to a returning D1 state placer from Cincinnati Moeller. He wrestled outstanding this weekend even with the losses; he is starting to see state-caliber wrestlers and we are finding ways to improve every week,” Sterling observed.

Sophomore Austin Martin was 6th place, as was Luke Wrasman. “As a sophomore, this is a great accomplishment for Austin; he had many great matches that he won and made a couple mistakes that we can fix in his losses,” Sterling said. “His attitude is great and he continues to improve; keep an eye on him this year — I expect big things. Luke is starting to wrestle at a very high level while knocking off some extremely good competition. He was down 4-2 against a highly-ranked D2 wrestler when Luke tossed him with a highlight-reel-type throw to catch his opponent and pin him! “As a team, we wrestled extremely well with 10 out of 13 wrestlers contributing with wins. It is extremely important to have each guy perform well and this weekend they did that. The team goal was top 2 in small school and top 10 overall and we achieved both. This was 100 percent a full team effort, starting with the hard work these guys put in every day at practice.” St. John’s is in a tri-match at home Tuesday (6 p.m.) with Elida and Wayne Trace (Coldwater match canceled).

LIMA - Jefferson’s wrestling team won their first-ever invitational Saturday afternoon at the Lima Senior Spartan Invitational, competing against 14 other teams. Jefferson ended the day with 173 points, defeating second-place Tippecanoe who scored 161.5 points. Rossford finished third (143.5), while Tinora finished fourth (125). Other teams in the tournament included Springfield (123.5), Paulding (123), Spencerville (108), Lima Senior (92.5), Shawnee Springfield (78), Northwood (68.5), Middletown (56), Ada (47.5), Antwerp (18), Bath (16), Mount Gilead (0). Jefferson coach Mike Wilson said his team stepped it up on Saturday and were determined to come away with the first-place finish. “Last week, I felt bad for the kids placing second (Plymouth Invitational) and they were determined to get

The statistics for the game really spelled out why the Big Green (3-8, 0-2 PCL) were unable to come away with the victory: 6-18 (33%) from the 2-point area, 4-18 (22%) from 3-point land and 5-8 (63%) from the foul line. The Big (Continued from Page 6A) The second half brought more of the same for the home team; with their crowd already in a frenzy from the first half, the Bulldogs came out firing as Dane Stechschulte (8 markers) hit the first basket of the half and Travis followed with a long-range shot, followed by another back-door bucket by Rieman that expanded the Grove lead to 67-32. Columbus Grove dominated the battle of the boards as well 35-21. The Bulldogs (8-2, 3-0 PCL) host Spencerville Friday, while Leipsic falls to 8-1 (3-1 PCL). Columbus Grove won the junior varsity game 44-30. Earlier, balanced scoring and key free-throw shooting helped the Lady Vikings past their hosts. The Vikings shot 19-of-24

the win today,” Wilson said. “They all didn’t wrestle their best but they did what they needed to do to win.” The Wildcats had three wrestlers make it to the championship match and each of them placed first. Junior Colin Conneahea defeated Stewart Vleek from Springfield in the 195-pound weight class. Senior Curtis Miller stayed undefeated at a record of 28-0, dominating his opponent, stateranked Lucas Sparks from Springfield Shawnee, in the semifinal match. Miller also took down Springfield’s Devin Nye 17-4 to take first place in the 220-pound weight class. “The last two matches were the farthest I have been pushed all year,” Miller said. “With the two kids I wrestled, both were state-ranked and this was good for me, especially to get ready for state.” In the 285-pound weight class, junior Quentin Wessell defeated his teammate, classmate Geoff Keteham, in the championship match to take first place in the Spartan Invitational.
Green were forced into 13 turnovers (8 in the second half) and hauled down 14 rebounds. Hohlbein led the Big Green with 11 points (3 3-pointers). For the victorious Rockets (3-7, 1-3 PCL), they were led by Schmenk (17 points) and Basinger (13 points). The Rockets were 8-23 (35%) on 2s, 3-7 (43%) from beyond the arc and 18-25 (72%) from the

Spencerville coach Tom Wegesin was pleased with his kids’ performance, placing seventh. Cole Bellows was runnerup in the 138-pound weight class, next to first-place Ben Patzek from Tippecanoe. Tyler Shumate placed second in the 182-pound weight class, losing to Springfield’s winner Darreyl Grayson. “All of our kids wrestled really hard today and have been working hard to get where they are,” Wegesin said. “We are very happy with that and we are moving right along. The guys are still learning and still picking things up but we are continuing to improve and that’s what you want to do all season long.” Jefferson is in a tri-match with Allen East at Lincolnview Tuesday. Spencerville is off until the LCC Invitational Jan. 27-28.

from the charity stripe and got an 8-for-8 performance from the line by Emily Gerten (13 points), while teammate Molley Ellerbrock led all scorers with 14 and delivered on 6-of-10 from the line, all in the final stanza. Anna Ricker was a perfect 6-of-6 from the line for the Bulldogs, accounting for the bulk of her team-leading eight points on the game. The Vikings held an early lead before Grove rallied for a 7-2 run, capped off by a basket by Renee Karhoff with 5:25 to go in the first half, tying the game at 13-13. However, the guests rallied for a 9-2 spurt of their own before the break and took a 22-15 lead after the first 16 minutes. Gerten was held scoreless in the first half but tallied seven in the third quarter. The senior nailed a 3 with 5:11 to go in

the period, giving the Vikings a 28-17 advantage. Leipsic held a 12-point lead for much of the period before Ricker cut it down to single digits late as the Bulldogs trailed 32-24 heading into the final canto. Leipsic expanded its lead to 20 points in the final period when Ellerbrock made both ends of two shots from the line; although the Vikings made just two buckets from the field, it was their 14-of-20 shooting from the line that helped pace their way. The Bulldogs got a lone trey in the quarter by Breanne Halker and shot 6-of-8 from the stripe. The Lady Bulldogs visit Spencerville Thursday.

The Herald – 9A

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, JANUARY 17, 2012 It’s very likely that you will establish an extremely valuable ally in the year ahead who may be a bit older and more experienced than you, but with whom you will match up quite well. Together you’ll do some big things. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Because you’ll innately understand certain things that aren’t necessarily obvious to others, trust your own instincts over the general consensus. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -For some strange reason, your sense of timing will be better than ever and could prove to be an enormous asset. When you feel the moment is right, play your trump cards. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Information you receive from a trusted ally could contain some hidden ramifications that require a great deal of thoughtful analysis. You should carefully evaluate everything. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to deal with some challenging developments, but you won’t have any trouble solving problems. You’ll perform best when working with your mind. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It won’t bother you one bit if an idea or suggestion that’s offered by another is superior to anything you’ve thought of. In fact, you’ll welcome clever thinking of every stripe. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Being materially motivated will substantially enhance your effectiveness and productivity. When you see a chance to make a dollar, you won’t hesitate to do what you must to earn it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Because you’re a good listener, you’re likely to pick up all kinds of bits of information that could collectively prove to be beneficial. Don’t ever stop learning. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A situation that has been hanging fire for far too long can be successfully brought to a conclusion. If you see a sudden opening, act on it with boldness and alacrity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Upgrade that operation or endeavor in which you are presently involved the moment you get the chance to do so. Such an opportunity won’t come again soon. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -You could be exceptionally fortunate in your commercial affairs if you’re willing to act as soon as a likely opportunity manifests itself. Don’t sit around wondering if it’ll work -just do it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Good news that will substantially elevate your hopes and wishes is on its way, at long last. It will enable you do something you’ve thought about for a quite a while. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You should closely listen to the advice of others about how to make or save money, but then follow whatever course makes the most sense to you. Pay the most heed to your own intuition. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2012 Although you won’t necessarily emphasize objectives that are of a material nature when making a list of goals, as each one is achieved they could collectively end up helping to improve your financial lot in life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even though you believe that friends will back up your words, it might not happen. The support you’ve been looking for isn’t likely to be forthcoming, so play things close to the vest. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Unfortunately, it might be difficult for you to stay the course. All those good intentions of yours could quickly be swept aside if you let outside distractions influence you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You’re not likely to be plagued with a lack of imagination. In fact, the problem you’ll have will be one of being too easily swayed by your illogical concepts. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You’re likely to get a much better price from a stranger than from the usual places at which you do business. Check out all your sources before making a large purchase. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Although your objectives are worthy ones, a busybody could gum up the works for you if you let him or her do so. Your aims might be quite different from those of your pal. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Generosity is a noble virtue, but it should be dosed with a bit of wisdom. Be careful not to give to an unworthy pal while forgetting about someone who has done much for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -There are no guarantees that you will yield the same good fortune if you replicate a friend’s endeavor. Your pal might have been in the right spot at the right time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Even though you might try to please everyone in the same manner, it doesn’t always work. Disappointment on your part can be minimized by realizing that you can’t be all things to all people. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -If you want to fulfill an important objective, you need to be quite shrewd and resourceful. However, be careful not to do anything that would violate your code of ethics. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -You’ve been in a cycle of peaks and valleys lately when it comes to your finances. If you make this day one of prudent spending and negotiation, it’ll pay off for you more than usual. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Do first all the things that you know you can accomplish on your initial effort, because if you try something hard and fall short, it’s likely to stop you from trying anything else. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Don’t be a source for gossip or hearsay that has yet to be substantiated. If you say anything negative about another, chances are the same will be said about you.

A tamer Gervais leads predictable Golden Globes
By CHRISTY LEMIRE The Associated Press BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The Hollywood Foreign Press Association dared to let Ricky Gervais come back and host the Golden Globe Awards, a year after he insulted the organization and nearly everyone in the star-studded room with his lacerating wit. But Gervais and the show seemed tamer and more predictable this year, not quite living up to outrageous reputations. Even the winners themselves, including “The Descendants” and its star, George Clooney, were predictable. The victory for “The Descendants” in the best drama category sets it up in an expected battle at the Academy Awards with “The Artist,” which won the award for best musical or comedy. Both had been frontrunners all along among people who are the business of prognosticating these things; Oscar nominations will be announced Jan. 24, with the ceremony itself coming Feb. 26. Clooney won for his portrayal of a middle-aged husband struggling to raise his two daughters while their mother is in a coma. Jean Dujardin won the same award in the musical or comedy category for “The Artist” as a silent film actor whose career derails with the arrival of sound. (”The Artist” won the most film awards with three total, including one for Ludovic Bource’s original score.) It took the presenters and winners themselves to liven up the program — and that includes Uggie, Dujardin’s scene-stealing Jack Russell terrier in “The Artist,” who performed some of his signature tricks on stage toward the end of the night. While Gervais dropped an F-bomb a couple hours into the broadcast — likely an accident after some imbibing on and offstage — he also took aim at easy targets like Kim Kardashian. Clooney, in accepting his best-actor award, made a joke about fellow nominee Michael Fassbender, who plays a sex addict in “Shame.” “I’d like to thank Michael Fassbender for taking over the full-frontal nudity responsibility that I had,” and Clooney then went on to suggest Fassbender could play golf with his hands behind his back. Even Meryl Streep — the grand dame of them all who won for best actress in a drama for her portrayal of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady” — let an expletive slip during her acceptance speech. Streep got flustered when she realized she forgot her glasses at her table; instead she winged it, giving a rambling (but gracious) speech praising other actresses’ performances, including some who hadn’t even been nominated that night. Two of Hollywood’s most veteran and esteemed directors also were winners Sunday night, both of whom were venturing into 3-D for the first time: Martin Scorsese for best director for the family fantasy “Hugo” and Steven Spielberg for best animated film for “The Adventures of Tintin.” Meanwhile, Woody Allen won for his screenplay for “Midnight in Paris” — but naturally, he wasn’t there to accept the statue in person. The comedy is his biggest hit in decades but he’s typically reluctant to attend awards shows. Things were much more fresh and inspired on the television side of the ceremony, with daring shows earning honors and longtime stars going home with statues for new roles. “Homeland” on Showtime, which explores terrorism and an Iraq war veteran, earned awards for best drama and best actress in a drama for star Claire Danes.

2B – The Herald

Monday, January 16, 2012


It was Danes’ third Globe; she won her first when she was just 15 for “My So-Called Life.” Former “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer won best actor in a drama for Starz’s “Boss,” while former “Friends” star Matt LeBlanc won best actor in a musical or comedy for Showtime’s “Episodes.” ABC’s “Modern Family” was the big winner among commercial broadcast networks, following up its Emmy for best television comedy by winning the Golden Globe. Creator Steve Levitan and actress Sofia Vergara accepted the award with a comic riff in which she spoke in Spanish and Levitan “translated.” Let’s hope the after-parties got wilder.
