Apple to take a bite out of her future after retiring
BY MIKE FORD firstname.lastname@example.org FORT JENNINGS — Most guidance counselors deal with student behaviors stemming from broken homes or economic challenges families now face. Most guidance counselors are also specific to a high school or elementary. In this little village, though, fewer families and more widespread traditional values means if students here face the same issues, it’s to a smaller degree. Guidance Counselor Sue Apple, 54, is retiring after a long career in education that began with four years in Bryan City Schools as a special education teacher. She had earned a bachelor degree in special education from Bowling Green State University and went on to the University of Toledo for her master’s in counseling. She came to Jennings in 1985 and has been the guidance counselor for all grade levels ever since. She says the job is different here because of the nature of the community. “When I talk to other counselors, I see that my job

The 20th annual National Association of Letter Carriers “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive Saturday was a huge success. Over 2,700 pounds of food was collected. All customers, both within the city of Delphos and the surrounding rural routes, were asked to place their non-perishable food donations, including baby food and pet food, by their mailbox or at the place designated for their mail delivery. This year, all donations will be divided equally between the food pantries of the St. Vincent DePaul Society and the Interfaith Thrift Shop, as well as First Assembly of God, all in Delphos. Marshall Dempsey, Robin Allen, front and back: Sue Weiss, Chuck Shumaker and Nick Coil; look over the collection of food. Kiwanis members and volunteers spread mulch Saturday morning around the new playground equipment installed at Garfield Park. The equipment includes a four-bay swing for older children; a two-bay swing for younger children; and four pieces of freestanding equipment. The club will also put up new fencing along Clay Street that will be moved back from the road to allow additional parking and enclose the equipment for safety.

is a lot different from theirs because we’re such a small school. Someone told me once that we’re about five years behind the times but I’m more than happy to be five years behind because we don’t have a lot of the issues bigger schools have,” she said. “When I started here, if you had one single-parent home in six grades, be it the elementary or the high school, that was substantial. Now, there are more because it’s more common to have shared custody these days and blended families and both parents having to work are also more common. There isn’t always a parent home when a student gets home from school and some kids live with their grandparents — we have some of the same issues they have in other districts but to a lesser degree.” She added that holding these things somewhat at bay boils down to cohesion in the community that spills over into school. When kids misbehave, it’s harder to keep it a secret. “They have brothers, sisters, cousins — somebody See APPLE page 3
Iran begins nuke talks with int’l community
By GEORGE JAHN Associated Press VIENNA — A senior U.N. nuclear agency official urged Iran today to allow access to sites, people and documents it seeks in its probe of suspicions that Tehran conducted secret research into nuclear weapons development. The appeal came as International Atomic Energy Agency officials renewed talks with Iranian envoys aimed at persuading Tehran to allow IAEA experts to visit a suspect site at the Parchin military complex. The agency believes that site was used by Iran to test multipoint explosives of the type used to set off a nuclear charge. Iran denies such experiments and insists it has no plans to turn its civilian nuclear program to making weapons. A computer-generated drawing obtained by The Associated Press from a country tracking Iran’s nucle-

The IAEA has not commented, but Olli Heinonen, who was the senior official in charge of the Iran file until he left the IAEA last year, says the drawing is “very similar” to a photo he has seen and identifies as that of the Iranian chamber, adding even the colors of the two images match. IAEA Deputy Director General Herman Nackaerts said the agency was seeking Iran’s cooperation, ahead of today’s talks at Iran’s mission to the IAEA and other Vienna-based U.N. organizations. “We are here to continue our dialogue with Iran in a positive spirit,” Nackaerts told reporters. “The aim of our two days (talks) is to reach an agreement on an approach to resolve all outstanding issues with Iran. “In particular, clarification of the possible military See IRAN page 3

Ohio prison tries crochet in effort to soften prisoners
By SHEILA McLAUGHLIN The Cincinnati Enquirer LEBANON (AP) — Robert Mack killed a Mount Airy man in a shootout in 2007. Jonathan Seals shot his mother’s boyfriend to death in Springfield. Justin Stephan used a knife and a brick in a thrill killing in Tuscarawas County. The hands of these men have committed the unthinkable. Now, they are armed with a flexible plastic crochet hook instead of tools of violence. Now, these tainted hands are doing good. “I do it for the love,” said Mack, who is 28 and has one year left on a five-year prison sentence for voluntary manslaughter. Behind fences lined with razor wire at Lebanon Correctional Institution in Warren County, these three inmates are among 15 who spend their down time looping and twisting strands of yarn — much of it donated — into delicate baby booties, mittens, hats, afghans and lap blankets. These are tough guys in a prison designed for maximumsecurity inmates. They are members of “Real Men Crochet.” The program was unique to LCI but has since spread to one other prison. In it, inmates crochet items that are donated to the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Dayton, to women’s and homeless shelters, maternity programs, and to Crayons to Computers free store for teachers in Cincinnati. “Real Men Crochet” started in 2008 and gained popularity among inmates that are eligible for extra privileges, said Jan Vurginac, who coordinates the program. “Time goes by quick and they enjoy doing it for the children. It keeps them busy. Idle time is a big problem,” she said. None of them had ever picked up a crochet hook before, nor would they think twice about doing it on the outside. “Never,” said Seals. The LCI inmates are an important part of the “Keep Our Kids Warm” program at Crayons to Computers, said Susan Van Amerongen, who coordinates Crayons to Computers prison programs. The LCI inmates provided 300 handmade mittens, hats and scarves this year to school kids who needed them. And there was a memorable afghan that made an autistic student’s life a little easier in class, said Van Amerongen. It was bigger than he was and he carried it around with him in school.

CLEVELAND (AP) — After five statewide votes over 20 years, Ohio is getting its first casino. Horseshoe Casino Cleveland opens to the public today and the city was ready to close off nearby traffic lanes hours earlier. Most of busy Public Square in the heart of downtown Cleveland opposite the casino won’t reopen to traffic until Tuesday. The 53 percent winning margin in favor of casinos by voters in 2009 came with backers promising new jobs and opponents warning about more gambling addicts. Voters also approved casinos in Toledo, opening in two weeks, and Cincinnati and Columbus, set to open by next year. The Cleveland casino has about 2,100 slot machines, 63 table games, a 30-table World Series of Poker room and a VIP lounge. The casino expects 5 million visitors a year.
Southeast Ohio faces costly Ohio casino bets trials in septic tank slaying on big crowds
LOGAN (AP) — Officials and residents of a southeast Ohio county are concerned about bills the Appalachian area faces for three murder trials in the slaying of a woman found strangled in a septic tank last year. Hocking County commissioners have put $100,000 into a fund to pay for the upcoming trials in 25-yearold Summer Inman’s slaying, but they know that will not be enough, The Columbus Dispatch reported Sunday. No one knows how high the cost will be for the county of approximately 29,000 people about 50 miles southeast of Columbus. “That could just be a drop in the bucket,” Commissioner Sandra Ogle said of the $100,000. Inman was abducted on March 22 last year outside a Logan bank she was cleaning after hours, forced by two men into a car driven by a woman and strangled, authorities said. Her body was found a week later in an underground septic tank behind a church near Nelsonville in Athens County. Inman’s estranged husband and the husband’s parents have pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the death. Their trials are scheduled over the next few months. Some residents also are concerned about the financial cost to the county, where the unemployment rate is 9.3 percent and 15 percent of the population lives below poverty level, according to state and federal data. “It’s a shame in a poor county,” said county resident Rick Webb. “The budget is very tight. It’s difficult.” The county must pay court-appointed attorneys for the defendants because they are all indigent. Jury selection is scheduled to start May 24 for the estranged husband, William

A. Inman II, 27. He is charged with aggravated murder. His father, William A. Inman, 48, also is charged with aggravated murder and is scheduled for trial in August. Both could receive the death penalty if convicted. Sandra K. Inman, 47, who told authorities where to find her daughter-in-law’s body, is charged with murder and scheduled for trial in July. She faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted. Murder cases carrying the death penalty are more expensive to defend than simple murder cases and range up to $250,000 in Ohio, including prosecution, defense and other expenses, according to legal experts. The costs increase with appeals. “To put it in context, $100,000 would probably be a fair estimate of the defense cost for our client alone,” said lawyer Andrew Stevenson who was appointed along with another lawyer to defend William A. Inman. site. Diplomats subsequently told the AP that the experiments also appear to have involved a small prototype neutron device used to spark a nuclear explosion - equipment that would be tested only if a country was trying to develop atomic weapons. Iran has strenuously denied conducting such work - and any intentions to build nuclear weapons - but has been less clear on whether the structure where it allegedly took place exists. The senior diplomat familiar with the IAEA investigations said the Iranians have refused to comment “one way or the other” on that issue to agency experts. He and others interviewed by the AP demanded anonymity because their information was privileged, and the official providing the drawing and other details on the structure also demanded that he and his country not be identified in return for sharing classified intelligence.

dimensions remains our priority,” Naeckerts said, adding: “It’s important now that we can engage on the substance on these issues and that Iran let us access people, information, documents and sites.” The official who shared computer-generated drawing said it proves the chamber exists, despite Tehran’s refusal to acknowledge it. He said it is based on information from a person who had seen the chamber at the Parchin military site, adding that going into detail would endanger the life of that informant. The official comes from an IAEA member country that is severely critical of Iran’s assertions that its nuclear activities are peaceful and asserts they are a springboard for making atomic arms. Beyond IAEA hopes of progress, the two-day meeting is being closely watched by six powers trying to per-
suade Iran to make nuclear concessions aimed at reducing fears it may want to develop atomic arms as a mood-setter for May 23 talks between the six and Tehran in Baghdad. Warnings by Israel that it may attack Iran’s nuclear facilities eased after Iran and the six - the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany - met last month and agreed there was enough common will for the Baghdad round. But with the Jewish state saying it is determined to stop Iran before it develops the capacity to build nuclear weapons, failure at the Iraq talks could turn such threats into reality. The IAEA has been blocked by Iran for more than four years in attempts to probe what it says is intelligence from member states strongly suggesting that Iran secretly worked on developing nuclear weapons. Iran says the suspicions are based on forged intelligence from
the United States, Israel and others. The agency first mentioned the suspected existence of the structure in a November report that described “a large explosives containment vessel” for experiments on triggering a nuclear explosion, adding that it had satellite images “consistent with this information.” It did not detail what the images showed. But a senior diplomat familiar with the IAEA’s investigation who has also seen the image provided to the AP said they revealed a cylinder similar to the image at Parchin. Subsequent photos showed a roof and walls going up around the cylinder that then hid the chamber from satellite surveillance. IAEA chief Yukiya Amano said in March that his agency has “credible information that indicates that Iran engaged in activities relevant to the development of nuclear explosive devices” at the

It takes the whole community and here in Fort Jennings, we have that. It makes Fort Jennings a nice place to live and raise children.” The Minerva native serves as guidance counselor parttime and has always taught at least a couple class periods each day through her years as a Musketeer. “I’ve taught 7th grade literature most recently. I’ve also taught freshman civics, 7th and 8th grade history, 7th grade math, 8th grade math, 8th grade English, Ohio history — whatever was needed and generally, in the junior high area,” she said. Apple is responsible for student records, so she has watched technology change over the years. “We went from teachers writing grades on grade cards to me writing grades on grade cards to me imputing the grades. Now, I just print them out,” she said.
She said she doesn’t know what the day will bring when she comes in each morning. This time of year, she’s busy scheduling classes for next year and helping seniors prepare for college by getting transcripts out to universities students are applying to. As she looks forward, Apple expects to do more traveling. Her husband, Randy, retired from teaching at Elida last year. The pair are serious baseball fans, having been to every park in Major League Baseball. They have flown out West and rented a vehicle, only to put thousands of miles on it hitting cities up and down the Pacific coast. She said baseball simply gives them an excuse to see cities they might not otherwise visit and usually hang out for a couple days when they go to games.

Apple said it will be difficult to say goodbye because she’s attached the the school

It’s a little hard when kids come in and say ‘oh, please don’t leave; stay until I’m done.’ It makes you feel good but tomorrow never comes. It won’t be easy but it has to happen sometime,” she said.

Obama targets Romney’s record on jobs
By KEN THOMAS Associated Press of the ad buy though it’s in the middle of running a $25 million, month-long ad campaign in nine states. A longer version of the ad was being posted online today. The commercial will be coupled with a series of events Obama’s campaign is holding this week in Florida, Missouri, Iowa, Nevada and North Carolina to highlight Romney’s role at Bain Capital, a company he co-founded. It’s unclear whether Obama, himself, will criticize his Republican rival on the subject when the president appears at events in New York today or whether he’ll leave the skewering to campaign surrogates as he prepares to meet with foreign leaders during the G-8 and NATO summits later this week. Vice President Joe Biden was holding two days of events in Ohio, where he was expected to discuss Romney’s role as a corporate buyout specialist. Obama, hosting his first campaign rally earlier this month in Columbus, Ohio, gave a preview of the new line of attack, saying Romney had “drawn the wrong lessons” from his business experience at the helm of Bain. “He doesn’t seem to understand that maximizing profits a region it neglected during the past decade of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, the alliance is assuming growing importance. For its part, the Philippines is looking to Washington and its allies to help equip and train the nation’s bedraggled military, to put up a show of resistance to Chinese vessels that frequently sail into waters Manila considers to lie within its exclusive economic zone. Ernest Bower, director of the Southeast Asia program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said it is very important for the U.S. to solidify its ties with its traditional allies in the region. “The relationship with the Philippines went south when the U.S. lost Subic Bay (naval base) and Clark (Air Base). The hangover is wearing off and interests are aligning again.” But for both sides, managing the new chapter in their alliance is something of a balancing act and carries its own risks. Nationalist sentiments still make an increased American military presence in the Philippines a sensitive issue, and its law forbids a foreign

Take-home test for HIV under review at FDA
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Food and Drug Administration is considering approval of the first over-the-counter HIV test that would allow consumers to quickly test themselves for the virus at home, without medical supervision. FDA reviewers said Friday the OraQuick In-Home HIV test could play a significant role in slowing the spread of HIV, according to briefing documents posted online. But they also raised concerns about the accuracy of the test, a mouth swab that returns results in about 20 minutes. The review comes one day after an FDA advisory panel endorsed the HIV pill Truvada for preventive use. If FDA follows the group’s advice, the daily medication would become the first drug approved to prevent healthy people from becoming infected with the virus that causes AIDS. Public health experts estimate one-fifth, or about 240,000 people, of the 1.2 million HIV carriers in the U.S. are not aware they are infected. Testing is one of the chief means of slowing new infections, which have held steady at about 50,000 per year for two decades. In a trial conducted by the company OraSure Technologies Inc., test correctly detected HIV in those carrying the virus 93 percent of the time. That rate is below FDA-recommended 95 percent threshold for accuracy. The FDA estimates the test would miss about 3,800 HIVpositive people per year, if approved for U.S. consumers. The test was more accurate at correctly clearing patients who do not have the disease. In company studies, OraQuick correctly identified HIV-negative users 99 percent of the time. In their briefing documents, FDA scientists noted both the benefits and risks of expanding HIV testing with the take-home diagnostic kit.
WASHINGTON -- This past week’s news cycle has produced two narratives: One, Barack Obama is an evolutionary, 21st-century hero who supports equality for all. Two, Mitt Romney is a gay-bashing bully mired in the previous century, who also supports a war on women and, oh yeah, hates dogs. Let’s parse, shall we? Obama’s Big Announcement that he supports gay marriage came about for the following reasons: (a) He had no choice after Vice President Joe Biden said on “Meet the Press” that he was fine with same-sex marriage; (b) one in six of Obama’s campaign bundlers, those who raise big bucks, is openly gay; (c) Obama risks nothing except votes of those who wouldn’t have voted for him anyway. And last, but certainly not least, because supporting equal treatment of all Americans under all legal contracts, including marriage with all its attendant rights and responsibilities, is the right thing to do. In this respect, Obama may have evolved in his thinking, as millions of other Americans have, including yours truly. Indeed, polls show the country is about evenly divided on the question, with younger Americans overwhelmingly supportive of same-sex marriage. In another generation, this conversation likely will be irrelevant. Meanwhile. Can we stop hyperventilating long enough to not be ridiculous? Yes, Obama’s statement
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is casting Mitt Romney as a greedy, job-killing corporate titan with little concern for the working class in a new, multipronged effort that seeks to undermine the central rationale for his Republican rival’s candidacy: his business credentials. At the center of the push — the president’s most forceful attempt yet to sully Romney before the November election — is a biting new TV ad airing today that recounts through interviews with former workers the restructuring, and ultimate demise, of a Kansas City, Mo., steel mill under the Republican’s private equity firm. “They made as much money off of it as they could. And they closed it down,” says Joe Soptic, a steelworker for 30 years. Jack Cobb, who also worked in the industry for three decades, adds: “It was like a vampire. They came in and sucked the life out of us.” The ad, at the unusual length of 2 minutes, will run in five battleground states: Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Colorado. The campaign declined to describe the size By MATTHEW PENNINGTON Associated Press
China tensions spur deeper US-Philippine alliance
WASHINGTON — China’s assertive behavior is breathing life into America’s historically tumultuous relationship with the Philippines. With Washington turning its attention more to the AsiaPacific region, the U.S. and the Philippines last week held the first joint meeting of their top diplomats and defense chiefs. The U.S. increased military aid and resolved to help its ally on maritime security. The steps came with the Philippines locked in a standoff with China over competing territorial claims in the South China Sea that has stoked passions on both sides. The U.S. is a walking a delicate diplomatic line. It doesn’t want the dispute to escalate, but it is showing where its strategic interests lie. The relationship between the U.S. and its former colony thrived during the Cold War but ebbed after nationalist political forces prompted the closure of American military bases in 1992. As the U.S. seeks to build a stronger presence in Southeast Asia,
by whatever means necessary — whether through layoffs or outsourcing or tax avoidance or union-busting — might not always be good for the average American or for the American economy,” Obama said then. Romney, a multimillionaire, left Bain in 1999 to run the Salt Lake City Olympic Games but maintained a financial interest in the company after departing. He has said that his firm had a strong overall track record, creating jobs in prominent companies like Staples and Sports Authority, while acknowledging that some companies Bain invested in were unsuccessful. Obama’s new ad, which reprises criticism leveled at Romney during the Republican primaries, focuses on one of those unsuccessful companies, GST Steel. Bain was the majority shareholder in GST Steel beginning in 1993. The company eventually filed for bankruptcy in 2001, a period in which the U.S. steel industry was roiled by a flood of cheap steel imports. About 750 workers lost their jobs, and were left without any health benefits and reduced pensions. The federal government was forced to infuse $44 million into the company’s underfunded pension plan. base on its soil. Like other Southeast Asian nations, the Philippines does not want to alienate the region’s economic powerhouse, with which it aims to have $60 billion in two-way trade by 2016. And the U.S. still needs to get along with China to prevent their strategic rivalry from spiraling into confrontation. The 60-year-old mutual defense treaty between the U.S. and the Philippines has the potential to put Washington in hot water in standoffs like the one playing out at the Scarborough Shoal, where Philippine and Chinese vessels have been facing off since April 10. Manila appears adamant that the U.S. would be duty-bound to come to the Philippines’ assistance should a conflict break out, but the U.S. has hedged on the issue. The broader trend is that for the past two years the U.S. has declared its “national interest” in freedom of navigation and peaceful settlement of disputes in the busy South China Sea. It expanded its military cooperation with the Philippines into maritime security after a decade of focusing on fighting al-Qaida-linked militants in the country’s south.
Evolution of a narrative
Point of View
carries symbolic weight but it changes nothing. In fact, by also saying he thinks the issue should remain with the states, he is both taking a conservative, states’ rights position and passing the constitutional buck. As Joe Scarborough pointed out, if the president believes that equal marriage rights are constitutionally protected, then he has a duty to fight for those rights rather than hand the issue to the states. Gays and lesbians won’t fare well on that frontier given that 30 states already have passed prohibitive amendments to their state constitutions. Thus, Obama’s announcement, while political and pragmatic, was fundamentally meaningless. You’d never know it by the media’s response, of course. As Tim Stanley wrote in Britain’s The Telegraph, everything the first African-American president says or does is breathtakingly historic: “The Prez could go sealclubbing and much of the media would see it as a new epoch for winter sports. ‘Barack Obama Becomes the First President to Kill Six Seals in Under One Minute,’ The New York Times would proudly report, while Twitter would be all abuzz with how hot he looks in snow
shoes.” Not so much poor Mitt. While Obama was being feted at a $40,000-a-plate din-din at George Clooney’s house, Romney was being roasted for a high school bullying “prank” nearly 50 years ago. A prank that made the top half of The Washington Post’s front page Friday -- and details of which are in much dispute, especially from the family of the alleged victim, who, alas, isn’t alive to defend his version of events. Briefly, as told by a handful of boarding-school classmates, Romney led a group of boys who tackled and held down John Lauber and cut his longish, blond hair. Romney allegedly didn’t like Lauber’s look and decided to fix it. The subtext is that Lauber may have been gay and that, therefore, Romney is a not-so-closeted gay hater. For those to the premises more recently arrived, a quick primer on 1965, when this occurred. Nobody knew who was or wasn’t “gay,” a word that wasn’t yet in popular circulation as a noun and generally meant “merry.” Homosexuality wasn’t on most high school kids’ radar, period. If anything, Romney may not have liked Lauber’s “hippie” locks, which is the more likely case given the era. Whatever. Lauber obviously was a nonconformist in an environment that valued conformity, and Romney and his crew were indeed bullies. They shouldn’t have done it, but boarding schools until recently
were not widely known as incubators of sensitivity. Today, of course, prep schools feature weekly diversity seminars and offer staff psychiatrists for the noncompliant. But five decades later, this is a campaign issue in a presidential election? Lauber’s family doesn’t think it should be -- and they may be the only people who count in this particular debate. The real story, meanwhile, is the one that keeps getting pushed aside, which is that the country is going bankrupt and that 32 percent of young people (18-29) are underemployed. But as long as we’re talking about things like gay marriage and contraception -- all forced to the fore by Democrats, by the way -- Americans can avert their gaze from the evolving economic collapse, which will be anything but gay. A previous column stated that high-fructose corn syrup (HCFS) is six times sweeter than cane sugar. The relative sweetness of HCFS to cane sugar is subject to debate. HCFS has been reported to be less sweet than sugar, equally as sweet as sugar, and sweeter than sugar (including six times sweeter). The column also stated that annual percapita consumption of HCFS was 60 pounds. The USDA’s most recent estimate, reflecting a recent decline and adjusting for spoilage, uneaten food and other factors, is 35 pounds.

Raiders take twinbill versus Lady Wildcats
By JIM METCALFE
DELPHOS — Wayne Trace came out a-slugging in both games of its fast-pitch softball twinbill in Delphos Saturday morning/afternoon, grabbing both ends 14-6 and 17-0 over Jefferson at Lady Wildcat Field. Two Jefferson seniors played their final home games and final games of their Wildcat careers and were recognized prior to game 1: shortstop Samantha Thitoff and catcher Cassidy Bevington. The Lady Raiders scored three times in the first inning of the opener against Jefferson junior starter Taylor Branham (7 innings; 18 hits, 14 runs, 10 earned, 1 base-on-balls, 6 strikeouts) and compiled 18 hits. In the first, they combined four hits, including a 2-run double to left-center by Emilie Linder (2-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) and a run-scoring knock to center by Molly Crosby (3-for-5), an error and a stolen base for a 3-0 edge. Junior Fallon Van Dyke got aboard on a 2-out single in the first off Wayne Trace freshman starter Addie Baumle (3-2; 4 IPs, 8 hits, 3 earned runs, 4 Ks) but remained there. The Lady Raiders made it 5-0 in the second. Two more hits, including a solo bomb to left — between the flag pole and the scoreboard — by Baumle (4-for-5 at the plate, 4 runs, 2 runs batted in), two miscues and a run-scoring grounder by Maddie McClure made it so. Jefferson again challenged in the home second: a 1-out looper to center by freshman Shayla Rice and a 2-out liner up the gut by junior Rachel Miller; but they were stranded. The Wayne Trace lead became 6-0 in the third on a walk, a pair of hits and Baumle’s ground ball that plated Crosby. The Red and White got two back in the home half. Thitoff (2-for-4, 1 RBI) bunted her way aboard but was eliminated on a bunt by junior Corinne Metzger. Van Dyke (2-for-2, 2 BBs, 2 runs) lined a hit up the middle.
Bevington (2-for-4, 1 run, 4 RBIs) whacked a double to the left-field corner to plate Metzger and Van Dyke for a 6-2 deficit. The visitors went up 8-2 in the fourth. With one down, the Raiders combined a triple to left by lone senior Sarah Feasby (2-for-5, 2 RBIs), an RBI double to left by Kayleigh Young (2-for-5, 2 RBIs) and a single to left by Crosby and a misplayed grounder. The Wildcats got one back in the home half. With one down, Miller (2-for-4) beat out an infield hit to short and junior Kayla Kill sacrificed. Thitoff tripled to the fence in left center to plate Miller but Thitoff was stranded. In the Wayne Trace fifth, they got two more for a 10-3 advantage. A suicide squeeze by Mackenzie Swary (2-for4, 3 RBIs, 2 runs), scored Baumle, who was on third via a hit into left and an error. A hit, a fly ball and a runproducing 2-bagger to right by Young plated Linder. Van Dyke walked to greet Young (3 IPs, 4 hits, 3 earned runs, 2 BBs, 4 Ks), on in relief in the fifth. Bevington clubbed a no-doubt 2-run round-tripper to right center, just to the left of the utility pole. Branham followed with a no-doubt solo blast to straightaway center to make it a 10-6 deficit. An out hence, junior Whitney Hohlbein lashed a single into center. She advanced on a ground ball by Miller and to third on Kill’s misplayed grounder but runners remained on the corners. The visitors scored their final four tallies of the opener in the sixth. Four hits, including a 2-run double by Swary off the fence in center (scoring pinch-hitters Lyndsay Combs and Leah Sinn) and a 2-run smack into left by Brenda Feasby (2-for-5) that got Baumle and Swary home, plus an error accounted for a 14-6 edge. Van Dyke walked with 1-out in the Jefferson sixth but was caught trying to advance on a pitch in the dirt. The Wildcats got a 2-out single into right by Hohlbein (2-for-4) but was the final

runner left on base (8 for the game). In the nightcap, both teams were playing as many people as they had and in different positions in the planned 5-inning affair. The Raiders (12-13) again jumped on top of Branham (1 IP, 3 hits, 4 earned runs, 1 BB, 2 Ks) with a 4-spot in the opening frame and that ended her pitching for the spring. Four hits, especially Linder’s (2-for-3, 4 runs, 2 RBIs) double off the fence in left scored Baumle (3-for-4, 5 runs) and a 2-run 3-base hit to left by Feasby (5-for-5, 6 RBIs, 4 runs) that drove in Swary and Linder home, plus an error and a wild pitch, made it 4-0 right away. The Wildcats (4-16) loaded the bases in the first against Young (1 IP, 1 hit, 1 BB) on Metzger’s 1-out misplayed grounder, a walk to Van Dyke and a bloop to left by Bevington, playing her final game. However, a popup and a comebacker ended that threat. Rice (3 IPs, 11 hits, 12 runs, 9 earned, 5 BBs, 2 Ks), she of very limited pitching experience this spring, came on in relief of Branham in the second. A hit batter (Baumle), a passed ball, an error and a Linder (2-for-3, 4 runs, 2 RBIs) walk loaded the bases. A 1-bounce 2-bagger to left by Feasby scored the first two and Young’s (3 RBIs) blooper scored the next two to make it 8-0. Crosby (4 IPs, 2 hits, 6 Ks) came on in relief in the Jefferson half of the second. Three singles, including a run-producer by Feasby (Baumle), a walk, a fielder’s choice, an error and a wild pitch accounted for Wayne Trace’s four runs in the third that out the lead at 12-0. Thitoff, also in her finale, got aboard to start the Jefferson third on an error but was eliminated on a 1-out grounder by Van Dyke. She was then left on base. In the guest fourth, five knocks — the big blows being a 2-run double by Combs that

got Feasby and Crosby home, run-scoring double by Linder (Baumle) and a Stabler bloop (Linder), plus a walk combined to produce a 16-0 edge. Rice led off the home fourth with a knock to center but went no further. Baumle greeted Kill (1 IP, 2 hits, 1 earned tally), also of limited pitching experience this spring, with a triple to left to start the Lady Raider fifth and scored on a 2-out triple down the left-field line by Feasby. In the Delphos fifth, freshman Sarah Thitoff beat out an infield hit to short and advanced on an error on a strikeout. However, she went no further. “In the first game, Wayne Trace just hit the ball so well, very much like a Crestview. We actually played good defense but they just put so much pressure on us with their bats because they put the ball in play so much,” Jefferson coach Dave Wollenhaupt said. “The second game, it was treated like a junior varsity game, with both teams moving people around and getting everybody in that was here. We had a limited JV schedule to begin with and many of the pitchers we saw today, we will see in our JV game with Wayne Trace (today). This is also my third year as coach and I got teary-eyed in the locker room after the game because of Cassidy and Sam. I’ve had seniors leave before but I didn’t have as good a chance to work with them as I did these two.” Wayne Trace coach Nikki Staten liked what she saw out of her team. “We are so young: we started four freshmen and four sophomores most of the year and it took time for them to get used to each other,” she added. “Our hitting finally has started coming together because of getting that experience; that’s been the biggest issue this whole season. What we have coming back bodes well for the next few years.” Both teams ended their seasons.

NWC track and field teams tune up for districts
By Charlie Warnimont Delphos Herald Correspondent CONVOY – Northwest Conference coaches feel their track and field meet is a good warmup for the post-season. If that is the case, the Spencerville girls and Columbus Grove boys track teams should enjoy some success along the tournament. This comes after the two teams ran away from the field at the NWC Track and Field Championships Thursday and Saturday at the Crestview Athletic Complex. Spencerville won the girls NWC crown, scoring 163.5 points to easily outdistance second-place Bluffton with 113 points. Columbus Grove finished third with 87 points and Jefferson was fourth with 69. Lincolnview finished ninth with 32. The Grove boys won the conference championship with 140 points, while Spencerville was second with 85 points. Lincolnview finished sixth with 55.5 points and Jefferson was sixth with 54. The Lady Bearcats won another conference title using their overall depth to score points in every event, including a few double-placements along the way to build up points. “We work real hard to get every event, try to get that team aspect,” Spencerville coach Bruce McConnell said. “We had a lot of girls come through. They have worked hard and we have some real good individuals so we were hoping to run well and perform well.” Kelli Ley was a double winner for the Bearcats, taking the 200 (26.81) and 400 (58.66) and was second in the 100 (13.03). Kacie Mulholland finished second in the 200 (26.93) for Spencerville. The Bearcats had double-placements in all of the distance events as Alexa Brown was second in the 800 (2:28.15) and Karri Purdy was third (2:30.60). Tori Hardesty was second in the 1,600 (5:35.77) and Cierra Adams was third (5:38.53), while Adams was second in the 3,200 (12:41.89) and Hardesty was third (12:43.87). Hardesty, Adams, Purdy and Brown combined to win the 3,200 relay (10:06.53). “The girls that run cross country have a real strong base as we did real well in the mile, half-mile and 2-mile,” McConnell said. “We scored in every event. Kelli won the 400 and 200 and Kacie was right there with her. The kids look forward to this and with our tradition through the years, they know what to expect and they came through.” S c h y l a r Miller, Emilee Meyer, Jennifer Post and Mulholland finished second in the 400 relay (52.69). Abby Freewalt won the shot put with a throw of 34-6 3/4 and Mulholland was second in the long jump with a leap of 15-9 3/4. The Jefferson girls came home with an event win as they took the 800 relay. The team of Breanna Strayer, Brooke Teman, Chelsey Bishop and Kennedy Boggs won in 1:49.05. Boggs also finished second in the high jump, clearing 5-2, and was second in the 400 (59.13). Strayer, Jenna Moreo, Heather Pohlman and Brooke Culp were third in the 400 relay (53.27), while Stephanie Koenig, Brooke Teman, Kenidi Ulm and Rebekah Geise were third in the 3,200 relay (10:35.57). “We were pretty pleased with our effort,” Jefferson coach Ryan Carder said. “We really didn’t know what to expect with moving some people around. We were trying to get the girls in the right places at the right time and we were pleased with the results. Kennedy ran really well and finished second in the high jump, so she performed like we thought she would. Our 4x400 relay team took five seconds off its time. This gives us a good idea of where we need to place some people going into districts.” Lincolnview’s Kaylee Thatcher was second in 16.35 (100 hurdles) and she was fourth in 51.26 (300 hurdles). Columbus Grove’s girls team won a pair of field events as Megan Verhoff won the discus with a throw of 130-7 and Sydney McCluer won the pole vault (9-6). Danielle Schram finished second in the shot (33-3 1/2) and Aubrey Fruchey was third (33-3). Nicole Langhals was third in the 300 hurdles (49.54) and McCluer finished third (16.68) in the 100 hurdles. Columbus Grove’s boys team used the field events to help themselves to the title. Plus, they were second in all three events and were second in a fourth event. Dylan Vogt was a doublewinner for the Bulldogs, taking the high jump in clearing 6-0 and winning the discus with a throw of 156-11. Jeff Birkemeier took second in the high jump (5-10) and Trevor Schroeder was second in the discus (150-3). Tyler Wolfe won the pole vault (14-0) and Collin Grothaus was second (14-0). Caleb Grothaus was second in the long jump at 21-5. “Thursday was a big help for us, scoring 64 points,” Grove coach Chris Grothaus said. “Our two discus (guys) threw very well and we went 1-2 in the pole vault, so we felt pretty confident. Our distance kids have been steady all year and we were counting on a 1-2 in the 3,200 with the times. Things went pretty well for us.” Juniors Jake Graham and Alex Shafer delivered in the 3,200 as Graham won in 10:16.18 and Shafer was second in 10:17.42. Graham finished second in the 1,600 in 4:34.57. Derek Rieman won the 300 hurdles (42.12) and he was second in the 110 hur-

Lady Pirates clinch PCL softball tie with win over Big Green
By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald firstname.lastname@example.org games during their careers; however, each one has represented their school and team on and off the field and I’m very proud to have been their coach.” The Lady Pirates, under the veteran direction of head coach Jordan Streicher, jumped out quickly as junior Taylor Williamson led off the game with a double. Freshman McKenna Scott sent the first pitch she saw over the center-field fence for a 2-run home run, giving her squad a 2-0 lead. After retiring the Lady Green in the bottom of the first inning, the Lady Pirates erupted for four runs in each of the second and third innings to bust the game wide open by a score of 10-0. In the second, the Pirates used a combination of two hits (double by Scott and a triple by junior Sara Deken), coupled with two walks, a hit batter and a Lady Green error to extend the lead to 6-0. The Pirates took advantage of two doubles from junior Leva Weller and sophomore Kiana Warnement in the third to plate four more runs and the rout was on — 10-0 — for the visitors. The Pirates finished off their offensive fireworks on the day in scoring six more runs in the top of the fifth, extending their lead to 16-0. Three walks, two errors and another double off the bat of Scott helped the Pirates push across their final runs of the game. Streicher was very pleased on the day from his young squad: “We’re a very young team but have several experienced players back this year. With no seniors on the team, we’ve needed some of the young girls, like what McKenna did for us today, to step up and be leaders for us.” Eickholt would not let her final at-bat go away without a valiant effort. She lined a sharp single to start the bottom of the fifth inning and took second on a walk to Megan Risner. Eickholt scored all the way from second when the Lady Pirate’s third basemen threw the ball away at first, allowing her to score the lone run for the home team on the day. The Lady Pirates (8-10, 5-1 PCL) were led in hitting by Scott with three hits (home run and 2 doubles), three runs scored and knocking in six runs on the day. Warnement also had three hits. Weller was the winning
dles (15.46). The Bulldogs’ 3,200 relay of Wade Heffner, Graham, Shafer and Colton Grothaus were second in 8:27.92. “This was the kids goal to win the conference meet,” coach Grothaus said. “We won the PCL and NWC and now it’s time to get ready for the tournament. We are hoping to have some success there but we need to get a little healthy as we have some nagging injuries. And with Wade going down today (quad), we will need to see how bad that is.” Cody Biglow won the 110 high hurdles for Jefferson, finishing in 15.07, and was third in the 300 hurdles (42.64). Tyler Mox finished third in the 100 (11.66) and Nick Gallmeier was third in the 400 (52.66). Biglow, Mox, Chris Truesdale and Gallmeier won the 800 relay for the Wildcats, finishing with a time of 1:33.34, and their 400 relay of Darren Edinger, Mox, Truesdale and Gallmeier was second in 45.05. “I felt the meet went well,” said Jefferson coach Bub Lindeman. “We definitely had some PRs and we just missed getting the school record in the 4x200 by a couple of tenths. Our hurdler, Cody, won the 110 hurdles and we were happy with that. Our relay teams, we were really happy with. We feel the kids are getting stronger at the right time of the year and we are injuryfree, which is a big plus at this time of the year.” Lincolnview’s 3,200 relay team of Jeff Jacomet, Bayley Tow, Ben Bilimek and Lucas Myers was third in 8:36.83, while the Crestview relay of Shelby Ripley, Mycah Grandstaff, Zach Burdete and Genter were fourth in 8:39.41. Lincolnview’s Sloan Whitaker finished third in the high jump as he cleared 5-8. Starting Wednesday or Thursday, NWC teams will be starting the road to Columbus as the district meets get underway at various sites around the region.
OTTOVILLE — On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the Continental Lady Pirates traveled to Big Green country to take on the Lady Green in a Putnam County League softball matchup. The Lady Pirates put on an offensive exhibition and beat the hosts 16-1 in five innings. It was a bittersweet day for the Lady Green and its faithful as they needed to say a big thank you to five seniors playing for the last time for the Green and Gold: Kelsey Hoersten, Marissa Neinberg, Lindsey Eickholt, Krista Schimmoeller and Angie Keeran. The seniors were introduced to the crowd, gave flowers and thanks to their parents and, as a nice gesture, each dad threw the first pitch of the game to the senior girls. Ottoville head coach Joe Modica realized how lucky he was to be able to have these five ladies represent him: “These girls have been through a lot in four years. I know they have to be disappointed in not winning more
pitcher as she went three innings and was relieved by Emma Recker for the final two innings. The Lady Green (0-17, 0-6 PCL) only had two singles (Eickholt and Paige Lucas) on the day. Courtney Von Sossan took the loss as she went three innings and was relieved by Schimmoeller and Hoersten for the final two innings.

Clippers advance, knock out Grizzlies NBA DAILY PLAYOFFS
By TERESA M. WALKER The Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Chris Paul played with an aching right hip and Blake Griffin’s sprained left knee stiffened up during the game. If the Clippers were truly a 2-man team, then they would have been in trouble facing elimination by the Memphis Grizzlies. Good thing the guys on the Clippers’ bench want to keep playing. Kenyon Martin’s 23-footer put the Clippers ahead to start a fourth quarter in which backups scored 25 of their 27 points, helping Los Angeles’ other NBA team beat Memphis 82-72 Sunday and advance to the Western Conference semifinals. “Our bench was our MVP,” Clippers guard Randy Foye said. “They realized what they had to do. We had a lot of guys hurt, so we just continued to grind.” The Clippers reserves outscored Memphis’ bench 41-11 to help Los Angeles clinch its first playoff series since 2006 and only the franchise’s third overall. They also helped the Clippers avoid becoming the ninth NBA team to blow a 3-1 lead in a best-of-7 series and now they head to San Antonio for a second round starting Tuesday night. Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro said they will regroup today and focus on the Spurs then. He wanted his team to enjoy the series win for a little bit. Chris Paul scored 19 points despite his strained right hip flexor and was the only starter to score in the fourth quarter. Paul was so confident of victory he bought plane tickets for his wife and son to San Antonio on Saturday. Rudy Gay and Marc Gasol each had 19 for Memphis, which lost a Game 7 at Oklahoma City a year ago in the second round of the playoffs. Zach Randolph had a game-high 12 rebounds. The Clippers had missed two chances to clinch this series, including an 8-point lead in the fourth quarter Friday night. That’s why Martin huddled the Clippers together at the start of the fourth quarter Sunday to make sure it didn’t happen again. The Clippers trailed 56-55 after three quarters until Martin’s jumper started an 11-2 run; they led by as many as 11 down the stretch. Los Angeles finished off the win by hitting 9-of-10 free throws in the final 3:26. The Clippers also managed to outrebound the Grizzlies 46-44 for only the second time this series. Memphis got away from the inside-out approach that won the last two games. The Grizzlies outscored the Clippers 36-24 but Randolph felt they took far too many jumpers instead of feeding the ball to Gasol and himself. The Grizzlies also went cold at the worst time. They hit a series-low 32.5 percent (25-of-77) Sunday and only 4-of-18 in the fourth. After Gasol drove through the lane for a one-handed dunk with 3:09 left, Memphis didn’t score another field goal. They missed all 13 3-pointers. The Clippers and Grizzlies scrapped and fought for every ball with each possession feeling like a knockdown, drag-out fight. Memphis should have had an advantage against the hobbled Clippers, who were tipping off when they usually eat breakfast on the West Coast. Griffin scored only eight points and looked tentative before spending all but 99 seconds of the fourth on the bench cheering. And the Grizzlies are done after wasting their first homecourt advantage by blowing a 27-point lead in the opener and then failing to tap into the energy of a sold-out crowd in the decisive seventh game.
Heat 95, Pacers 86 MIAMI — LeBron James and Dwyane Wade carried the Miami Heat offense in the second half. With Chris Bosh gone, they had no other choice. And if Bosh doesn’t return soon, it may have to become a trend. James accepted his third MVP trophy from Commissioner David Stern before the game, then scored 26 of his game-high 32 points while playing every second of the second half — adding a season-high 15 rebounds as well — to help the Heat survive some rough stretches and pull out a 95-86 victory over the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series Sunday night. Wade scored 29 points for the Heat but the concern level was ramped up considerably afterward because of Bosh, who did not play in the second half because of a lower abdominal strain. The Heat expected to learn results of an MRI exam today. David West and Roy Hibbert each scored 17 points and combined for 23 rebounds for the Pacers, who got 10 points each from Darren Collison and George Hill. Indiana controlled long stretches of the first half and didn’t trail by more than two points at any time until the fourth, when it was outscored 25-16. Wade and James scored 42 points in the second half, while Indiana’s entire roster managed 38. Game 2 is Tuesday in Miami. Bosh caught a pass from James near the foul line late in the first half, took one dribble to start a drive past Hibbert, got down the lane and dunked the ball hard with his left hand while the Indiana center appeared to hit his right arm. Bosh fell forward as he landed, resting on his hands and knees for about 15 seconds before getting up slowly. He made his free throw and as he headed back the other way, he grimaced and grabbed at his midsection. He was defending Hibbert on the ensuing possession, simply letting him get off a shot as he fell forward to his hands and knees again. Bosh looked at the Miami bench, got up and headed to the locker room for evaluation. He did not return. The Pacers were called for 31 fouls on Sunday (22 for the Heat) — leading to a 38-28 discrepancy in free-throw attempts — and that was not one of the ones they argued. In the days before the series, Indiana coach Frank Vogel got the league’s attention — and a $15,000 fine — for accusing Miami of flopping in an effort to sway foul calls. Pacers forward Danny Granger shot 1-for-10 in the game, scoring only seven points. Everything was undecided until the final moments. Hill made a 3-pointer with 4:51 left, getting Indiana within 86-85. But the Pacers went cold from the field, James had a dunk in transition to make it 90-85 with 4:10 left and his jumper with 31.8 seconds remaining wrapped up the Heat win. Wade shot only 8-for-23 from the field and the Heat missed all six of their attempts from 3-point range — a first in team playoff history. But the Heat held a 45-38 rebounding edge. Irving to be named NBA’s top rookie CLEVELAND — Kyrie Irving began his first pro season as the top pick and ended it as the top rookie. Cleveland’s smooth, play-making point guard has been chosen as the NBA”s Rookie of the Year, a person familiar with the voting told the Associated Press on Sunday. Irving’s selection is hardly a surprise since the 20-year-old led all firstyear players in scoring — 18.5 points per game — and renewed hope for Cleveland’s franchise. He’ll receive the award on Tuesday, added the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the league has not yet announced the winner. ESPN.com and The Cleveland Plain Dealer first reported Irving’s win. Results of the voting won’t be available until Tuesday but it’s safe to assume Irving’s victory will be lopsided. After Minnesota guard Ricky Rubio suffered a season-ending knee injury, Irving was far and away the best all-around player in the rookie class. The Cavs used the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft to select Irving, who played in just 11 games as a freshman at Duke because of a toe injury. However, it didn’t take long for the 6-3 Irving to establish himself as one of the game’s rising stars. Irving is the second Cavaliers player to win the award, joining James in 2004.

The Associated Press SOCCER MANCHESTER, England — Manchester City won the English title for the first time in 44 years on Sunday, surging past Queens Park Rangers 3-2 with Sergio Aguero scoring his team’s second goal late in injury time. Aguero scored during the fourth minute of injury time, two minutes after substitute Edin Dzeko made it 2-2. The winning goal snatched the trophy
from defending champion Manchester United on goal difference. Without Aguero’s startling goal, United would have won the title after its 1-0 victory over Sunderland moments earlier on the final day of the season.

Mustangs knock off Wildcats KALIDA — It took Kalida and Allen East 11 days to make up their non-league baseball contest postponed from May 1 but the Wildcats might have wished it didn’t happen as the Mustangs grabbed a 6-2 victory Saturday at St. Michael’s Holy Name Field in Kalida.
Kasey Crow limited the Wildcats (13-9) to six hits, while the Mustangs got nine hits against Jordan Laudick. The hosts committed four errors and the Mustangs (149) three. Allen East had four doubles and scored three runs in the top of the fifth to open up that 4-run lead.

that came up in the Ryan Braun case. Alfonzo is eligible to play immediately, according to a person familiar with the decision who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday night because no announcement had been made. HOCKEY GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Los Angeles Kings certainly weren’t bothered by a long layoff. The Phoenix Coyotes sure seemed to be. Dwight King scored his second goal of the game into an empty net and the Kings dominated from the start to open the Western Conference finals with a 4-2 victory over the Coyotes on Sunday night to remain unbeaten on the road in the playoffs. With a week off after sweeping St. Louis in the second round, the Kings were far from rusty, overwhelming the
Coyotes early to set up Anze Kopitar’s goal 4 minutes into the game. Phoenix rallied to tie twice, the first time on a shot by Derek Morris that surprised Kings goalie Jonathan Quick from the red line, but the Kings kept coming. Dustin Brown had a goal and an assist, King had his first career 2-goal game and Los Angeles outshot Phoenix 48-27 to win its sixth straight road playoff victory, one short of the NHL record for a single postseason. The Kings have won six straight playoff games overall and eight straight on the road dating to last season. Game 2 is Tuesday night in the desert. The Coyotes also had a long layoff — they finished off Nashville on Monday night — and weren’t quite as sharp.

‘Avengers’ add $103.2M in sprint to $1 billion
LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Avengers” is taking a page out of Superman’s comic book — flying faster than a speeding bullet to the billiondollar mark at the box office. The superhero blockbuster took in $103.2 million to lead for a secondstraight weekend, raising its domestic total to $373.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. With $95.4 million more overseas, “The Avengers” lifted its international receipts to $628.9 million and a worldwide haul of just over $1 billion, only 19 days after it began rolling out in some markets. “You never think that it can happen this quickly,” said Dave Hollis, head of distribution for Disney, whose Marvel Studios unit produced the ensemble film after a long buildup in its solo superhero outings. “You hope you can get to this day, and the fact that it is happening this early is a testament to a lot of work that went in on the Marvel side over the last six years to get us to a place where people wanted to see the Avengers assemble.” “The Avengers” easily fended off Johnny Depp and Tim Burton’s vampire romp “Dark Shadows,” which had a so-so domestic start of $28.8 million to finish a distant No. 2. That’s far below such past DeppBurton collaborations as “Alice in Wonderland,” which opened with $116.1 million, and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” which debuted with $56.2 million. “Dark Shadows” added $36.7 million in 42 overseas markets for a worldwide total of $65.5 million. “The Avengers” was the first movie ever to pull in more than $100 million domestically in its second weekend, passing the previous best of $75.6 million for “Avatar.” The film also topped
Mr. and Mrs. Eversole - 1962
$300 million domestically Saturday after just nine days in release, beating the previous record set by “The Dark Knight,” which hit that mark in 10 days. Already the year’s biggest hit worldwide, “The Avengers” is on the verge of passing “The Hunger Games” at $386.9 million to become the top-grossing film domestically for 2012. Revenue for “The Avengers” was off just 50 percent from the film’s domestic debut of $207.4 million the previous weekend, a remarkable hold given how big it started. A round-up of such Marvel idols as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), “The Avengers” has shot past the revenues that its solo superhero predecessors took in for their entire runs. The best of those domestically was “Iron Man” with $318.4 million.
Leon and Maria Burgei of Cloverdale announce the engagement of their daughter, Jennifer Lynn, to James Thomas Buettner, son of James and Laura Buettner of Fort Jennings.

16 al-Qaida militants die in Yemen
By AHMED AL-HAJ Associated Press SANAA, Yemen — Yemeni government forces pounded alQaida fighters today, killing at least 16, while six soldiers died in clashes with militants in the country’s troubled south where the army is trying to uproot the terror group, military officials said. In one attack, Yemeni warplanes struck an al-Qaida hideout about 70 kilometers (44 miles) from the southern city of Zinjibar, the provincial capital of Abyan, which the militants captured last year. The bombardment killed at least 10 militants, the officials said. In Zinjibar itself, clashes between the two sides left six troops dead today, according to the officials. The military, backed by heavy artillery, has recently pushed into Zinjibar and regained control over some parts of the city. The army also fired missiles at a moving vehicle on the outskirts of another southern town, Lawder, killing six militants inside it, the officials said. The town was controlled by al-Qaida last year until its residents drove out the militants, who have since been trying to stage a comeback. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. Today’s fighting came a day after government bombings of al-Qaida positions across the south killed at least 30 militants. The attacks are part of the military’s broader campaign against the militants who seized towns and territory across southern Yemen over the past year, taking advantage of a security vacuum linked to the country’s political turmoil that pushed longtime authoritarian leader Ali Abdullah Saleh from power. The front lines are concentrated around Zinjibar and another Abyan town, Jaar, where al-Qaida has held sway since March 2011. If the military were to reclaim the two strongholds, it would deal a severe blow to the militants, leaving them scattered in remote mountain areas away from urban centers. In Jaar, militants sought refuge from Sunday’s intense bombardment, hunkering down inside government buildings in the town center. Warplanes dropped leaflets urging resi-

Moderate Taliban speaks of divisions
By KATHY GANNON Associated Press KABUL, Afghanistan — One of the most powerful men on the Taliban council, Agha Jan Motasim, nearly lost his life in a hail of bullets for advocating a negotiated settlement that would bring a broad-based government to his beleaguered homeland of Afghanistan. In an exclusive and rare interview by a member of the so-called Quetta Shura, Motasim told The Associated Press Sunday that a majority of Taliban wants a peace settlement and that there are only “a few” hard-liners in the movement. “There are two kinds of Taliban. The one type of Taliban who believes that the foreigners want to solve the problem but there is another group and they don’t believe,
dents not to let the militants hide inside their homes. A military official said one warplane on today missed its target in Jaar, accidentally shooting at civilians and wounding two children. The intensifying war against al-Qaida in Yemen — which the U.S. says is one of the terror network’s most active — is a top priority for Saleh’s successor and former deputy, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi. Hadi took office in February in a U.S.-backed power transfer deal and has since ramped up the fight against al-Qaida. On Sunday, the White House’s top counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, met with Hadi in the capital Sanaa. Hadi’s office said the Yemeni leader briefed Brennan on the army’s progress against al-Qaida in the south. Brennan, who also met with the head of Yemen’s military, reiterated Washington’s strong commitment to Hadi’s efforts to stabilize the country, and said the Yemeni leader is making “historical decisions during these critical times in modern day Yemen,” according to a statement released by the Yemeni Embassy in Washington.

and they are thinking that the foreigners only want to fight,” he said by telephone. “I can tell you, though, that the majority of the Taliban and the Taliban leadership want a broad-based government for all Afghan people and an Islamic system like other Islamic countries.” But Motasim chastised the West, singling out the United States and Britain, for failing to bolster the moderates within the fundamentalist Islamic movement by refusing to recognize the Taliban as a political identity and backtracking on promises —— all of which he said strengthens the hardliners and weakens moderates like himself. He lamented Sunday’s assassination in Kabul of Arsala Rahmani, a member of the Afghan governmentappointed peace council who was active in trying to set up formal talks with insurgents. Rahmani served as deputy minister of higher education in the former Taliban regime but later reconciled with the current Afghan government. “He was a nationalist. We respected him,” Motasim said. Motasim used his own stature to press for talks nearly three years before the United States began making overtures to the Taliban in late 2010.

1 in 3 autistic young adults lack jobs, education
By LINDSEY TANNER AP Medical Writer CHICAGO — One in 3 young adults with autism have no paid job experience, college or technical schooling nearly seven years after high school graduation, a study finds. That’s a poorer showing than those with other disabilities including those who are mentally disabled, the researchers said. With roughly half a million autistic kids reaching adulthood in the next decade, experts say it’s an issue policymakers urgently need to address. The study was done well before unemployment peaked from the recession. The situation today is tough even for young adults who don’t have such limitations. Ian Wells of Allentown, N.J., is 21, autistic and won’t graduate from high school until next year. He is unlikely to attend college because of his autism. He wants a job but has only found unpaid internships and is currently working part-time and unpaid as a worker at a fastener factory. He’s a hard worker, with good mechanical skills, but has trouble reading and speaking, By JEFFREY COLLINS and MICHAEL BIESECKER Associated Press said his mother, Barbara Wells. She said his difficulties understanding social cues and body language can make other people uncomfortable. “I’m very afraid” about his prospects for ever finding long-term employment, she said. “It keeps me up at night.” The study, published online today in Pediatrics, was based on data from 2007-08. It found that within two years of leaving high school, more than half of those with autism had no job experience, college or technical education. Things improved as they got older. Yet nearly seven years after high school, 35 percent of autistic young adults still had no paid employment or education beyond high school. Those figures compare with 26 percent of mentally disabled young adults, 7 percent of young adults with speech and language problems, and 3 percent of those with learning disabilities. Those with autism may fare worse because many also have each of the other disabilities studied. The researchers analyzed data from a national study of kids receiving special education services, prepared for the U.S. Department of Education. About 2,000 young adults with one of four types of disabilities were involved, including 500 with autism. It’s the largest study to date on the topic and the results “are quite a cause for concern,” said lead author Paul Shattuck, an assistant professor at Washington University’s Brown School of Social Work in St. Louis. “There is this wave of young children who have been diagnosed with autism who are aging toward adulthood. We’re kind of setting ourselves up for a scary situation if we don’t think about that and how we’re going to help these folks and their families,” Shattuck said. Government data suggest that 1 in 88 U.S. kids have autism and there’s evidence that the rate is rising. Within the next 10 years, more than 500,000 kids with autism will reach adulthood, said Peter Bell, vice president for programs and services at Autism Speaks, an advocacy group that helped pay for the study. “It’s a huge, huge issue,” Bell said. “Unfortunately there are many families that really struggle to understand what that transition ultimately entails. ...They face the reality

His own 19-year-old son has autism and is being home-schooled and Bell has hired therapists to prepare him for jobs and other life skills. Carol Schall, a special education policy specialist, said the results confirm smaller studies showing difficulties facing kids with autism as they transition into adulthood, and also highlight a need for better job training services offered in public schools for special education students. She is involved in research at Virginia Commonwealth University investigating whether on-the-job training and teaching social cues to high school students with autism makes them more employable. Kids are taught a range of practical skills and appropriate behavior. “It takes a much higher degree of intensity for them to learn skills” than for other kids, she said. Preliminary results show this training has helped kids with autism find and keep jobs, she said.

The Herald –3B
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, MAY 15, 2012 Conditions that will appeal to your adventurous spirit will be much more prevalent in the year ahead. Fortunately for you, many of these opportunities could mean more money in your pocket. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It is important for you to mingle with new people whenever you can, but this doesn’t mean you should ignore pals of long standing in favor of someone new, either. Make time for both. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Even though your first inclination may be to sidestep a challenging issue, once you take it on, you’ll handle it well and add to your quality reputation. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -It’s wonderful that your enthusiasms will be so easily aroused, but you must be careful that in your zeal for accomplishment you don’t do a slipshod job in the process. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t hesitate to be a bit adventurous, because there is a good chance you’ll discover -- both to your surprise and pleasure -- some hidden talents that you didn’t know you possessed. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -There is a good chance that instead of meeting issues head-on, you are likely to seek postponement whenever you can. If you focus on finding too many excuses, you’ll end up behind the eight ball. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you’re too eager to get everything done as quickly as possible, chances are you’ll be inviting problems. You’ll be much more efficient if you pace yourself. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You’re likely to be much happier getting involved in minor, fun and different diversions than you will with activities that involve big crowds. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Get that chip off your shoulder when dealing with authority figures. Everything will go much smoother if you rely instead on your wonderful sense of humor. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Be careful of suggestions offered by companions -- they could be selfishly motivated. Carefully evaluate all proposals before moving in a specific direction. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It behooves you to be bold and enterprising in order to make profitgeneration much easier than usual. Capitalize on everything you can. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Try to delegate as few assignments as possible, because there is no one who can look out for your interests better than you. Self-reliance has its advantages. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -It’s foolish to sweep an unpleasant yet important project under the rug in hopes that someone else will take care of it. Prompt attention to duty is the only real solution. WEDNESDAY, MAY 16, 2012 In the coming months, Taureans as a whole could be extremely fortunate in most endeavors they initiate and/or control. Problems could arise, however, if you allow others to talk you out of your way of doing things. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You?ll be surprised by your comprehension of the old saying: “We learn by teaching.” Let others be the instructors, for a change. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you discover that others are ready and willing to help you, drop everything and take them up on their offer. Chances are it?ll be a golden opportunity. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It isn?t likely you?ll find a better day to confront an individual about a prickly issue that needs resolution. By taking advantage of opportune timing, beneficial results can be achieved. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Utilize your strong feelings of ambition and motivation to take care of several large-scale objectives. It?s the strong desire to succeed that powers the engine of success. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -If you put your best foot forward, certain people with whom you?ll be in contact socially will happily agree to play some important roles in your present activities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Because no one knows your needs better than you, it will be up to you to orchestrate what measures should be taken to enhance your overall material security. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- For reasons you may not fully understand, your influence over your peers could be very powerful at this point in time. Keep your comments as constructive as possible. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although it generally isn?t advisable, in your case it?s OK to involve people with whom you share a close personal relationship in your business ventures. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You should finally be able to come up with a way to circumvent an obstacle in your path. Be ready, because it will require a surge of activity on your part. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It could be vital to keep your ideas and intentions confined only to those who are directly involved in an important endeavor on which you?re working. Secrecy is a must. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Be open-minded to a new way of doing something that might be superior to your present method. Be flexible in mind and keep your options open, and you’ll come out ahead. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Although each might require a bit of effort, several important objectives can be attained. Don?t hesitate to go all out in order to achieve what you want.
