AEP Ohio
customers
may see
7 percent
hike in bills
By ANN SANNER
The Associated Press
COLUMBUS — Ohio custom-
ers of American Electric Power
could see an estimated 6 per-
cent to 7 percent increase in their
monthly bills during the first year
of a new pricing plan beginning
this fall that Ohio utility regula-
tors approved Wednesday.
The three-year plan comes as
the Columbus-based company
transitions from decades as a reg-
ulated monopoly to a player in a
competitive market.
The Public Utilities
Commission of Ohio decided
Wednesday to freeze AEP’s base
generation rate, which typically
makes up the largest portion of a
customer’s monthly bill. But cus-
tomers will still see an increase to
their bills starting in September
because of other fees in the newly
approved pricing plan and vari-
ables such as fuel costs.
Commission Chairman Todd
Snitchler said the increase the
first year is a rough estimate
and increases the remaining two
years of the plan are not yet
known. Snitchler told reporters he
couldn’t provide a dollar estimate
because certain fees attached to
bills would be determined by the
new competitive market.
But no resident, business or
other customer would be respon-
sible for paying more than a 12
percent rate increase in their bill
during the three-year period, he
said. And if regulators see abnor-
malities in customers’ bills, the
commission can go in and make
additional adjustments to the rate
plan, Snitchler said.
Ohio’s utility consumer
advocate, the Ohio Consumers’
Counsel, was reviewing the plan
Wednesday but said that cus-
tomers could see “hundreds of
millions of dollars” in new rate
increases following the decision.
“Unfortunately, Ohioans will
be asked to pay dearly for AEP’s
transition to competition,” said
Bruce Weston, who heads the
consumer agency.
The commission approved a
pricing plan for AEP in December,
but revoked it in February after
weeks of criticism from custom-
ers, including some school dis-
tricts that said the plan would
nearly double their electric bills.
One small company complained
of an increase of about $28,000 in
annual electric bills.
“This order more evenly dis-
tributes the rate impacts among
customers,” Snitchler said.
Commissioners also decided
how AEP would recoup certain
fees that its competitors will soon
start paying the company to com-
pete in its territory.
Regulators in July had set the
fee at $188.88 per megawatt-day,
but required AEP to charge sup-
pliers a lower market-based price,
currently $20.01 per megawatt-
day. The commission had said
AEP could recover the differ-
ence in the amount between the
so-called capacity charges. On
Wednesday, they said the total
Library may hire part-time pages to put away books
BY STACY TAFF
staff@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — The Delphos Public Library Board of
Trustees kept its monthly meeting short Wednesday evening
with only four members present.
Director Nancy Mericle brought the board’s attention to
the proposed wall decorations for The First Edition build-
ing. The board has expressed a desire to have old Delphos
photographs from the library’s archives copied and enlarged
as canvas prints.
“I went to a local box store and looked at their prints and
theirs had a cardboard border but you could pay extra for the
wooden border that the canvas is stretched around,” Mericle
said. “Also, the picture was shinier than I would like. So, I
went over to another store and had them do up an example
for us and I think it turned out really well. It’s $59 for a
16X20 print and that includes the wooden frame.”
The board is planning to use donated funds to pay for the
decorations.
“We still have $2,000 from the Dienstberger Foundation
but I think we’ll have to decide whether or not to use that
for the floor repairs in the activity room,” Mericle said. “We
also have $500 from the Eagles Auxiliary we could use.”
In other news, the board is considering the possibility of
hiring pages to help put books away.
“We’ve got some employees who would like to get extra
hours but they don’t want to spend them putting books
away. Someone suggested we get volunteers to do it but
most of the volunteers we have are senior citizens who help
out with the book sales and I don’t think we want to have
them putting books away,” Mericle said. “ I think we’re just
going to have to break down and hire a page to help out
in the evenings and on Saturdays. Maybe two pages, who
could split the hours. We thought it would be a good idea to
hire high school students, one from each school. I think we
need to get the younger people in here. If we did have them,
it would really, really help.”
The board agreed to consider placing applications in each
of the high school offices when classes start in September.

Today is Thursday, Aug. 9,
the 222nd day of 2012. There
are 144 days left in the year.
Today’s Highlight in
History:
On Aug. 9, 1974, President
Richard Nixon and his fam-
ily left the White House as
his resignation took effect.
Vice President Gerald R. Ford
became the nation’s 38th chief
executive.
On this date:
In 1842, the United States
and Canada resolved a bor-
der dispute by signing the
Webster-Ashburton Treaty.
In 1862, during the Civil
War, Confederate forces
drove back Union troops in
the Battle of Cedar Mountain
in Culpeper County, Va.
In 1902, Edward VII was
crowned king of Britain fol-
lowing the death of his moth-
er, Queen Victoria.
In 1936, Jesse Owens won
his fourth gold medal at the
Berlin Olympics as the United
States took first place in the
400-meter relay.
In 1944, 258 African-
American sailors based at Port
Chicago, Calif., refused to load
a munitions ship following an
explosion on another ship that
killed 320 men, many of them
black. (Fifty of the sailors were
convicted of mutiny, fined and
imprisoned.)
In 1945, three days after
the atomic bombing of
Hiroshima, Japan, the United
States exploded a nuclear
device over Nagasaki, killing
an estimated 74,000 people.
In 1969, actress Sharon
Tate and four other people
were found brutally slain at
Tate’s Los Angeles home;
cult leader Charles Manson
and a group of his followers
were later convicted of the
crime.
In 1982, a federal judge
in Washington ordered John
W. Hinckley Jr., who’d been
acquitted of shooting President
Ronald Reagan and three oth-
ers by reason of insanity, com-
mitted to a mental hospital.

BRIEFS
Northwest Ohio counties
designated as disaster areas
BOWLING GREEN — On
Wednesday, the United States
Department of Agriculture
(USDA) announced it would
designate Williams County
as a primary natural disaster
area and Defiance, Fulton and
Henry counties will be desig-
nated as contiguous counties.
These designations allow for
farm operators within these
counties to be considered for
certain assistance from the
Farm Service Agency (FSA).
Defiance and Fulton counties
have already been receiving
assistance from FSA, how-
ever Henry County is now
eligible.
Prior to the USDA
announcement, Congressman
Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green)
and Ohio Agriculture Director
David T. Daniels toured farms
throughout northwest Ohio
on Monday to view areas of
distress due to the drought.
Congressman Latta and
Director Daniels met with
farmers to discuss the prob-
lems and issues they have
encountered during the
drought this year, which has
been described as the worst
drought since 1956. During
the tour Congressman Latta
and Director Daniels saw
first-hand the impact on local
corn, soybean, and tomato
crops in Fulton County and a
dairy farm, which milks 180
cows, in Defiance County.
“While there is no doubt
that this drought has had a
harmful effect on our farm-
ers and livestock producers,
these conditions present a
larger problem on an eco-
nomic scale. Ohio’s food and
agriculture industry yields
$105 billion to the state’s
economy,” said Latta. “As
one of the largest agricultural
districts in the state, many of
the communities in the Fifth
Congressional District, espe-
cially rural communities, are
supported by the farms and
small businesses within the
agricultural industry.”
“To the non-farmer, a
drought means brown grass
and the inconvenience of
having to water gardens and
flowers. To the farmer, as
we saw in our tour, it means
thousands of dollars invested
in a season’s crop that may
yield next to nothing or live-
stock feed costs that are so
high many will not be able to
afford to feed their herds and
flocks. Without rain or relief,
I fear some will not be able
to farm again next year,” said
Daniels.
The latest drought monitor
has counties within the Fifth
Congressional District of
Ohio experiencing moderate
to severe drought conditions.
The most recent USDA’s
crop bulletin reported that 50
percent of Ohio’s corn crops
were poor to very poor.
“Farmers and ranchers are
used to working in tough and
unpredictable conditions, but
it is critical that we work to
provide them with the man-
agement tools to alleviate the
emergency circumstances
they are facing now,” said
Congressman Latta in refer-
ence to Wednesday’s USDA
announcement.

Dear EarthTalk: Do environmentalists think
the Endangered Species Act has been a success
or failure with regard to protecting biodiversity
in the U.S.?
— Ron McKnight, Trenton, NJ

While that very question has been a subject
of debate already for decades, most environmental
advocates are thankful such legislation is in place and
proud of their government for upholding such high
standards when it comes to preserving rare species of
plants and animals.
That said, critics of the legislation make some
solid points. For starters, only one percent of spe-
cies (20 out of 2,000) under the protection of the
Endangered Species Act (ESA) have recovered suf-
ficiently to qualify for delisting. And the millions
of dollars spent on often failed recovery efforts are
difficult to justify, especially in these otherwise tough
economic times.
But even though the vast majority of species
protected under the ESA have not recovered doesn’t
undermine the significance of those species—bald
eagles, gray wolves, and grizzly bear to name a
few—that have rebounded thanks to forward thinking
legislation and wildlife management. Louisa Wilcox
of the Natural Resources Defense Council is grateful
to the ESA for the continued existence of grizzly
bears in and around Yellowstone National Park.
“After listing, the government cleaned up the mas-
sive garbage problems in Yellowstone Park, which
reduced the habituation of bears to human foods—a
pattern that often leads to grizzly deaths,” she reports.
Commercial sheep herds were moved out of core
grizzly habitat while hundreds of miles of roads on
public lands in the region were closed to improve the
iconic bears’ chances for survival.
The result: The Yellowstone grizzly
population more than doubled while
human/bear interactions and incur-
sions by hungry grizzlies onto local
ranches have declined. “So, by any
reckoning, the Yellowstone grizzly
bear story is an ESA success,” con-
cludes Wilcox.
To test whether or not the ESA
has been effective on a grander
scale, the Center for Biological
Diversity (CBD), another leading
green group, compared for its 2012
“On Time, On Target” report the
actual recovery rate of 110 listed
species with the projected recovery
rate in their federal recovery plans.
The 110 species occupy all 50 U.S.
states, include all major taxonomic
groups, and have various listing
lengths.
CBD found that the ESA had “a remarkably suc-
cessful recovery rate: 90 percent of species are recov-
ering at the rate specified by their federal recovery
plan,” adding: “On average, species recovered in 25
years, while their recovery plan predicted 23 years—
a 91 percent timeliness accomplishment.”
CBD also confirmed the hypothesis that the
majority of listed species have not enjoyed protection
for long enough to warrant an expectation of recovery
yet. “80 percent of species have not yet reached their
expected recovery year,” reports CBD, adding that
on average species have been listed for just 32 years,
while their recovery plans required 46 years for suc-
cess. This recent study’s findings echo the results of
an earlier (2006) analysis in the Northeastern U.S.
that found some 93 percent of federally listed spe-
cies there were stabilized or improving since getting
ESA protection and 82 percent were on track to meet
recovery goals. “When judged in the light of meeting
recovery plan timelines for recovery, the Endangered
Species Act is remarkably successful,” says CBD.
“Few laws of any kind can boast a 90 percent suc-
cess rate.”

WESTLAKE (AP) — A
northeast Ohio man accused
of carrying a loaded gun,
ammunition and knives into a
showing of the Batman movie
last weekend is now facing
weapons charges.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer
reports that 37-year-old
Scott A. Smith was charged
Wednesday with carrying
concealed weapons and hav-
ing weapons under disability.
Police say Smith carried the
weapons into a Westlake the-
ater before a showing of “The
Dark Knight Rises” Saturday
night. An off-duty police
officer working security and
theater manager searched his
satchel and found the weap-
ons.
Smith’s attorney said he
meant no harm, but had the
weapons because he wanted
to protect himself in case
someone tried to copy last
month’s deadly Colorado the-
ater shooting.
Ohio ‘Batman’
moviegoer faces
weapons charges
DAYTON (AP) — Gun-
rights advocates say the surge
this year in concealed-weapons
permits in Ohio is likely due to
new laws that make it easier to
carry them.
The state’s sheriffs issued
18,823 permits to carry con-
cealed weapons in the first three
months of 2012. That’s about
a 40-percent increase from the
same period two years ago.
The Dayton Daily News
reports that advocates are cred-
iting recent law changes with
making it more comfortable
for people to carry concealed
weapons. That includes allow-
ing them in restaurants and bars
that serve liquor, as well as in
school safety zones.
Ohio finished 2011 ranked
11th nationally in estimated
total active permits and 25th
in percentage of the population
that holds one. Ohioans have
been permitted to carry con-
cealed weapons since 2004.

COLUMBUS (AP) —
Ohio’s elections chief is ready
to share details of a new initia-
tive he says will simplify the
elections process in the presi-
dential battleground state.
Ohio Secretary of State Jon
Husted’s office said the initia-
tive would be unveiled today
in what it billed as a “major
announcement.” The office
said the effort will change
how voters prepare for elec-
tions.
The next major election in
Ohio is Nov. 6, when voters
will cast ballots in one of the
country’s most contested U.S.
Senate races and help choose
the president.
No Republican has ever
taken the White House with-
out winning Ohio and only
two Democrats have done so
in more than a century.

Ohio kidnap victim thanks
abductor for sparing her
MANSFIELD (AP) —
Visibly shaken in court before
her abductor was sentenced
to 25 years in prison, an Ohio
woman who was kidnapped
in March thanked the man for
not killing her or her neigh-
bors, whose house he also
admitted breaking into during
a nightlong crime spree.
Jennifer Hurst of Troy
Township thanked family and
officials for helping her after
a March 13 abduction that
started as she walked her dog.
She also addressed Nathan
Taylor, 29, who prosecutors
said eventually abandoned her
hours later in a vehicle.
“I wanted to thank Nathan’s
family for the love that they
have for you. ... I want to
thank you for stepping back
from all of the horrible things
that were going on. ... For not
killing me and for letting me
go, I’m grateful,” she said.
Taylor and another man,
23-year-old Tyrell Mallory,
were accused of a home inva-
sion and abduction that began
in the home of Scott Taylor
of Troy Township, about 35
miles north of Columbus,
The Mansfield News Journal
(http://ohne.ws/S2ld5B )
reported. Nathan Taylor is not
related to Scott Taylor.
Prosecutors said Taylor
and Mallory encountered
Scott Taylor and his wife,
JoAnn, as they prepared for
bed, then beat and assaulted
Scott Taylor. His wife, found
in a closet dialing 911, was
not harmed.
Prosecutors said the pair
later abducted Hurst, the
Taylors’ neighbor, as she
walked her dog. They entered
her home and forced her into
her car before Mallory got out.
Taylor drove Hurst around
and made purchases with her
debit card, then eventually left
Hurst in the parking lot of the
Cleveland Browns Stadium,
about 90 miles from Troy
Township.
Taylor was later arrested in
South Bend, Ind., and Mallory
surrendered in Waukegan,
Ill.
Richland County Common
Pleas Judge James DeWeese
sentenced Taylor on Tuesday
on two counts of aggravated
burglary, five counts of aggra-
vated robbery and one count
of kidnapping. He was also
given a six-year mandatory
sentence for two gun charges,
and was ordered five years of
parole after he completes his
sentence. Taylor had changed
his plea to guilty, avoiding a
possible 88-year sentence, the
newspaper reported.
During the hearing, Taylor
turned to his victims and apol-
ogized.
“I’m terribly sorry. ... I
know you guys may never
forgive me. I only hope and
pray you do, that you may find
it in your hearts,” he said.
“The truth is lived, not taught.”

Moderately confused
By JULIE PACE
Associated Press
DENVER — Seeking to
rally a crucial constituency,
President Barack Obama on
Wednesday warned women
in swing-state Colorado that
Republicans would seek to
strip away health care ben-
efits for them and cut funding
for contraceptive services.
In a passionate pitch for his
health care overhaul, Obama
sought to draw a stark con-
trast with presumptive GOP
nominee Mitt Romney, say-
ing his rival intended to take
his health care law and “kill
it dead” on the first day of his
presidency and “get rid” of
Planned Parenthood.
“They want to take us back
to the policies more suited to
the 1950s than the 21st cen-
tury,” Obama said, arguing
that the decisions affecting
a woman’s health are “not
up to politicians, they’re not
up to insurance companies,
they’re up to you.”
The rally — it was the first
of four events Obama planned
for a two-day trip through
the state — was geared spe-
cifically to women, who were
heavily represented in the
4,000-person crowd.
Both Obama and Romney
see women as a critical part of
their efforts to win Colorado,
where the presidential race
is tight three months from
Election Day.
A new Quinnipiac
University poll shows Obama
and Romney tied among vot-
ers in Colorado households
earning between $30,000
and $50,000 per year — an
important target. Obama
leads among voters with
lower incomes while Romney
is favored by those making
more.
Obama said women’s
issues resonated with him
because of his wife, first
lady Michelle Obama, and
his late mother. The presi-
dent said he wanted to ensure
that Mrs. Obama “has control
over her health care choices”
and noted that his mother
would have been 70 this year
had she not died from cancer
nearly two decades ago.
“I often think about what
might have happened if a
doctor had caught her cancer
sooner,” Obama said.
The president highlight-
ed his decision to nominate
Sonia Sotomayor and Elena
Kagan to the Supreme Court
and said the next president
“could tip the balance in a
way that turns back the clock
for women in the next decade
to come.”
The president was intro-
duced by Sandra Fluke,
whose congressional testi-
mony became a flashpoint
for arguments over contra-
ception, abortion and wom-
en’s health earlier in the year.
Fluke gained notoriety after
conservative talk show host
Rush Limbaugh called her
a slut because she supports
the Obama health care law’s
requirement that insurance
companies cover contracep-
tion.
Fluke said that when she
was “verbally attacked”
Obama “was one of us.”
“He defended my right to
speak without being attacked,
and he condemned those
hateful words,” Fluke said.
Recalling the incident, she
mocked Romney for saying
at the time that Limbaugh’s
words “aren’t the words I
would have chosen.”
“If Mr. Romney can’t
stand up to extreme voices
in his own party, then he will
never stand up for us,” she
said.
From Denver, Obama
headed to Grand Junction,
Colo., an area that leans
Republican. In front of a rau-
cous crowd in a high school
gymnasium, Obama pressed
forward with his effort to
paint Romney as protector
of the rich because of his
support for extending Bush-
era tax cuts for all income
earners.
Obama said Romney is
struggling to explain to vot-
ers how the tax cuts could
continue without adding to
the deficit and having middle-
class Americans pay more.
“There’s a whole differ-
ent type of gymnastics being
performed by Mr. Romney
than what is happening at the
Olympics,” he said.
Obama wants to extend
the tax cuts for families mak-
ing less than $250,000 a year.
Under his plan, families who
make more would still be
taxed on a lower rate for their
first $250,000 in income and
at a higher rate for any addi-
tional income.
Obama: Romney would
return health care to 1950s
By RICARDO ALONSO-
ZALDIVAR
Associated Press
WASHINGTON —
Welfare is causing a ruckus
in the presidential campaign.
But the program is a shad-
ow of its old self from the
1970s, when Ronald Reagan
used the image of “welfare
queens” to assail government
poverty programs promoted
by liberals.
Nowadays government
cash assistance to the poor is
mainly conditioned on work.
And the Obama administra-
tion waivers excoriated by
Mitt Romney as gutting wel-
fare reform are unlikely to
reverse that basic policy, as
even some architects of work
requirements acknowledge.
“If Washington were dif-
ferent and ... people could sit
down and reason together, it’s
not impossible to think that
Republicans and Democrats
would come to an agreement
on waivers similar to what the
administration is proposing,”
said Ron Haskins, co-director
of the Brookings Center on
Children and Families. As a
senior House GOP aide in the
1990s, Haskins helped write
the original welfare-to-work
legislation.
The Obama administra-
tion says it does not want
to waive work requirements,
but instead primarily federal
administrative rules, includ-
ing some that tie up state
caseworkers who could be
serving clients.
The 1996 welfare reform
law, a pillar of social policy
for conservatives, replaced
a federal entitlement with
grants to the states, while
putting a time limit on how
long families can get aid and
requiring recipients to even-
tually go to work.
Welfare caseloads declined
for years before the recession,
and there are only about 2 mil-
lion families on what’s now
called Temporary Assistance
for Needy Families, or TANF
for short. It’s dwarfed by the
Earned Income Tax Credit,
the government’s main anti-
poverty program, which sup-
plements the earnings of low-
income families through the
tax system and helps nearly
27 million households.
Former GOP aide Haskins
said the Obama administra-
tion was wrong to roll out its
waiver plan without first get-
ting the advice and consent of
congressional Republicans.
But he added, “There is merit
to what the administration is
proposing, and I don’t see
how you can get to the con-
clusion that the waiver pro-
vision undermines welfare
reform and it eliminates the
work requirement.”
It’s not a blanket waiver
because states would have to
apply one at time for exemp-
tions from certain require-
ments of the welfare-to-work
law. And states must show
their plans would move at
least 20 percent more people
to work.
Moreover, with or without
waivers, there’s cap on the
total amount of federal money
available to states for welfare
— about $17 billion — so it
would not make much finan-
cial sense for a state to waste
any of those dollars.
Such details seemed to
have no place on the cam-
paign trail.
A Romney ad Tuesday
that accused Obama of qui-
etly unraveling the work
requirements was quickly
slammed by the White House
as dishonest. The debate took
a further spin when former
President Bill Clinton, the
Democrat who signed the
bipartisan welfare changes
into law, came to Obama’s
defense.
Then Wednesday morn-
ing came the counterpunch
from the Republican National
Committee, which put for-
mer House Speaker Newt
Gingrich on a conference call
with reporters. As Clinton’s
GOP counterpart during
the 1990s welfare debate,
Gingrich had high praise for
the former president while
heaping disdain on Obama,
whom he dubbed “the anti-
Clinton.”
Gingrich suggested that
the Obama administration’s
waiver program is ille-
gal because it would allow
Health and Human Services
Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
to relax some restrictions
spelled out in a section of the
law that Republicans contend
is protected from such waiv-
ers.
However, Sebelius says
she has a legal opinion from
department attorneys that
says waivers are allowed
to test if state experiments
would improve the program.
Does welfare waiver gut rules or tweak them?

Associated Press
WASHINGTON —
To keep pace with rapidly
changing notions of race, the
Census Bureau wants to make
broad changes to its surveys
that would treat “Hispanic” as
a distinct category regardless
of race, end use of the term
“Negro” and offer new ways
to identify Middle Easterners.
The recommendations
released Wednesday stem
from new government research
on the best ways to count the
nation’s demographic groups.
Still it could face stiff resis-
tance from some racial and
ethnic groups who worry that
any kind of wording change
in the high-stakes government
count could yield a lower tally
for them.
“This is a hot-button issue,”
said Angelo Falcon, president
of the National Institute for
Latino Policy in New York
City and a community adviser
to the census. “The burden
will be on the Census Bureau
to come up with evidence
that wording changes will not
undermine the Latino num-
bers.”
Arab-Americans said they
strongly support the Census
Bureau’s efforts. “The Census
Bureau’s current method for
determining Arab ancestry
yields a significant under-
count of the actual size of
the community, and we’re
optimistic that the new form
should be significantly better
at capturing ancestry data,”
the Arab American Institute
said in a statement.
The research is based on
an experiment conducted dur-
ing the 2010 census in which
nearly 500,000 households
were given forms with the race
and ethnicity questions word-
ed differently. The findings
show that many people who
filled out the traditional form
did not feel they fit within
the five government-defined
categories of race: white,
black, Asian, Pacific Islander
and American Indian/Alaska
Native; when questions were
altered to address this con-
cern, response rates and accu-
racy improved notably.
For instance, because
Hispanic is currently defined
as an ethnicity and not a race,
some 18 million Latinos — or
roughly 37 percent — used
the “some other race” cat-
egory on their census forms
to establish a Hispanic racial
identity. Under one proposed
change to the census forms, a
new question would simply
ask a person’s race or ori-
gin, allowing them to check
a single box next to choices
including black, white, or
Hispanic.
The other changes would
drop use of “Negro,” leaving a
choice of “black” or African-
American, as well as add
write-in categories that would
allow Middle Easterners and
Arabs to specifically identify
themselves.
Census begins to reassess how it measures race
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)
— Republican presidential
candidate Mitt Romney took a
potshot at California’s bedrag-
gled economy, comparing it to
the crisis in Greece, as he
warned voters on Wednesday
that Barack Obama is leading
the nation down a similar path
of huge debt.
“Entrepreneurs and busi-
ness people around the world
and here at home think that
at some point America is
going to become like Greece
or like Spain or Italy, or like
California — just kidding
about that one, in some ways,”
he added, to laughter from his
audience in Iowa.
The remark seemed likely
to bruise egos in a state wres-
tling with the prospect of tax
increases and painful budget
cuts. But Romney may have
little to lose there — polls
show Obama with a comfort-
able lead in California, where
Democrats control the gover-
norship and the Statehouse.
A spokesman for California
Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat,
disputed Romney’s assess-
ment. Gil Duran said the state’s
credit outlook has improved
under Brown and that borrow-
ing costs, a major issue fac-
ing Italy and other financially
struggling European nations,
have dropped by hundreds of
millions of dollars.
“This is just a paper-thin
Republican talking point that
doesn’t really stand up to scru-
tiny” Duran said. “He should
get some better speechwrit-
ers who actually know what
they’re talking about.”
Romney is focused on
Iowa’s six electoral votes in
a state race that both parties
think could be close. He told
Iowans that Americans have
to show investors worldwide
they are serious about reining
in the nation’s spending and
debt.
“If they think we are going
to get to a point of massive
deficits and the potential for
economic challenge, why,
they’re going to have a tough
time investing in America,”
he said.
As Romney and his
Republican allies denounced
Obama as too far left to be
re-elected, they held up an
unlikely presidential role
model — Democrat Bill
Clinton.
At a morning rally in Iowa,
Romney repeated his charge
that Obama is stripping work
requirements from welfare and
instituting changes to “make
America more of a nation of
government dependency.”
Obama’s campaign says
Romney is misrepresenting
a change that simply gives
more freedom to states that
requested it to help deal with
paperwork. But Gingrich,
whose own bid for the GOP
nomination was quashed
by Romney, argued that the
administration’s willingness to
weigh state requests for waiv-
ers amounts to a back-door
maneuver to undermine the
1996 law signed by Clinton.
“Clinton was trying to
move the party to the center,”
Gingrich told reporters, refer-
ring to the Democratic Party.
“Obama is trying to move it
to the left.”
The former president him-
self weighed in. Clinton said
in a statement Tuesday that
the assertion in Romney’s ad
was “not true.”
Obama is launching a two-
day, four-city swing through
Colorado on Wednesday.

One Year Ago
• For Gary Levitt, beginning a museum dedicated to the
history of mail delivery in the United States did not seem
like an obvious career choice. Levitt, a former Delphos
postmaster, is now director of the Museum of Postal History
on Main Street in Delphos. The project began after a 60th
anniversary celebration of that city’s post office building
back in 1993.
25 Years Ago — 1986
• The Ottoville Senior Citizens social club held their short
business session and card party recently at the Veterans of
Foreign Wars social rooms. Matilda Eickholt received the
attendance award. In pinochle Josephine Bockrath was high
and Esther Eggeman second. Albert Wieging was high and
Loretta Ruen second in euchre.
• The girls T-ball tournament champions are the Fantastic
Fielders. They are Denise Weinandy, Ashley Reynolds,
Melanie Morten, Melissa Wieging, Sara Suever, Cari
Bockey, Erica Reinemeyer, Amber Dancer, Linda Knippen,
Angie Reynolds, Chrissy Odenweller and coaches Sue
Klausing, Nicki Wienken, Katie Hanser and bat girl Jill
Fischer.
• The Delphos Animal Hospital, Inc., 1825 E. Fifth St.,
recently opened not only as a combination veterinary clinic-
residence, but also as the only husband-wife animal hospital
in the area. Bonnie and John Jones, DVM, proprietors of the
recently-constructed clinic, with Edward Laman, DVM, are
both 1985 graduates of the veterinary college at Ohio State
University.
50 Years Ago — 1962
• Boy Scouts, sponsored by the Venedocia Lion’s Club,
recently completed a week of scout camping at Camp
Lakota, Defiance. David Van Eman, Tom Bassett, Gene
Davis and Max Wood assisted Scoutmaster John Lloyd dur-
ing the week. Scouts attending were Mike Davis, Bill Fox,
Tom Bassett, Steve Van Eman, Joe Fox, Kenny Coil, Tom
Evans, Mike Bricefield, Greg Morris and Larry Book.
• Court Delphos, No. 707, Catholic Daughters of America,
will be host to a diocesan luncheon honoring the Most Rev.

the class, presided at the meeting, and Rev. Hugh Mosher
opened the meeting with prayer. Harriet McClung read the
scripture lesson.
75 Years Ago — 1937
• A break in the gas line in an ice cream freezer chest at
Maude’s Restaurant on East Fifth Street, made it necessary
to completely evacuate the building Monday noon. As the
result, no meals were served at noon. The restaurant was
able to resume business later in the afternoon.
• Charles Myers, Mack Dunifon and Doit Swihart were
in Mansfield Sunday in attendance at the annual reunion of
Machine Gun Company, 146 Infantry. Four local men were
members of that company during the World War. Louis
Robinson, the fourth member from Delphos, was unable to
attend Sunday.
• A party of Delphos Boy Scouts returned to Delphos
Sunday morning after spending a week at heir annual sum-
mer camp at O’Connor’s Landing on Indian Lake. In the

DELPHOS — With eight returning
lettermen back from a second-place finish
in the Midwest Athletic Conference (on a
5th-man tie-breaker), an 8-2 mark and a
district appearance, third-year St. John’s
head golf coach John Klausing (12-8) has
big plans for the new season.
“We are an experienced team this year.
They work as a team and have shown great
improvement in the off-season,” Klausing
said. “My seniors are experienced and
played all summer long. If we keep focused
on our goals, we could advance quite well.
We should be strong in the MAC again.”
The key cog on this unit is fourth-year
senior Nick Kayser (40-stroke average over
9 holes).
Four seniors will be in their third sea-
sons of varsity: Craig Klausing (43), Sean
Flanagan (43), Cole Fischbach (44) and
Aaron Miller (49).
One more 12th-grader: Drew Wagner
(50); as well as junior T.J. Hoersten (56)
and sophomore Jordan Keirns (56); are
back to lend a veteran hand.
“The one thing we must do and I stress for
us is: play, play, play,” Klausing added.
With three veteran seniors gone due to
graduation: 3-year players Cody Kundert,
Isaac Klausing and Eric Bergfeld; plus the
graduated Matthew Warnecke and Anthony
Buzzard; only one newcomer is on the ros-
ter: freshman Brandon Slate.
St. John’s is in the Indian Brook
Tournament in Fostoria starting 9 a.m.
Friday to commence 2012.

KALIDA — Ken Schnipke produced
another fine golf team in 2011, finishing at
8-4 in duals, grabbing runner-up status in the
Putnam County League to Ottoville and end-
ing up ninth at regionals at Bowling Green.
In this, his 17th season at the Wildcat
helm, he has six letterwinners back, all but
one in his top seven from last fall, to do even
more damage.
“Overall, the team has a good work ethic.
With more hard work and patience, we could
have a very successful season,” Schnipke
noted.
Leading the pack of veteran Wildcats
are the likes of Cody Mathew, last sea-
son’s number 1; Schnipke’s number 2, senior
Neil Recker; and senior number 4 Austin
Horstman.
Junior Jarrod Stober was the seventh man
last year.
As well, sophomore Zach Erhart was
the number 5 and classmate Brady Mathew
number 6.
With a total roster of 12, Schnipke has
a few more options this season to press the
veterans and provide depth: senior Taylor
Aguirre, sophomore Noah Verhoff and fresh-
men Evan Recker, Nathan Nordhaus, Nathan
Meyer and lone LadyCat Sara Cleemput.
“Brady, Taylor and Jarrod are very likely
to surprise people this year; they’ve particu-
larly been working hard over the summer,”
Schnipke explained.
Overall, while the old maxim is golf is
that driving is for show, the short game —
particularly the approach shots — is what
Schnipke knows his team has to constantly
get better at to continue its success into
2012.
The Wildcats open the newest campaign
Friday versus Fremont St. Joseph and Liberty-
Benton at their home course, Country Acres
Golf Club in Kalida. First tee is 10 a.m.
Kalida ready for 2012 golf season
By JIM METCALFE
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
U.S. track and field athlete Lolo Jones
was criticized by the New York Times
recently for her perceived lack of accom-
plishments on the track, instead writing
that the publicity — which the writer
claims is far more than she deserves — is
due to her beauty and a marketing cam-
paign.
It brought her to tears.
I have one quick response: she didn’t
make the US Olympic team the last two
Games in the hurdles because she looked
good! She ran better than her opponents
in the Trials!
Some marketing!
I wondered who’s cynical here? Or is
there more than meets the eye?
OK, she hit a hurdle during a finals in
2008 in Beijing. It happens. She was in
the finals!
The fact that she is beautiful didn’t help
her qualify either time.
Understood, she has sponsors and made
appearances on TV and magazine covers
but her back story — her family once liv-
ing in a church basement in Iowa is pretty
“attractive” — may have as much to do
with that as anything. Who doesn’t like
the underdog?
Also understood that she has no
Olympic medals or world outdoor titles
but when you realize the high profile and
ultra-competitiveness that is today’s inter-
national track and field scene (this is BIG
business!), just being there in ANY event
says a lot about how good you are.
If this is all you have to write about ...
Besides, it seems to me that Tyson Gay
trying to chase Usain Bolt — good luck!
— has received a lot of publicity!
Is Tyson a failure because he can’t beat
Bolt on the Olympic stage? Three guesses
as to the answer!
Speaking of which, I fleetingly caught
two questions posed on one of the sports
shows: could Bolt be the first to record a
sub-4-second 40-yard dash and could he
make it in the National Football League?
I didn’t see the responses but to me,
the answer to the first is maybe. Off the
top of my head, I believe it was either Bo
Jackson or Deion Sanders that timed a
4.12, which I believe is the fastest ever in
the NFL. I know Darrell Green and Bullet
Bob Hayes — in the “olden” days — were
close.
With Usain’s admittedly slow starts, I
am not sure he could get under four sec-
onds. After all, he has all that “time” in the
100 meters to get rolling that he wouldn’t
have in the 40 dash.
However, at 6-5 and his explosion and
strength overall, I think he’d be a terrific
— though very expensive — gamble for
an NFL team.
These sprinters today aren’t of old;
they are cut and stacked.
It would come down to his having
either hands of stone or of silk!
If we needed another reminder that
those in the highest echelons of sports
— be they players, coaches or even those
around the game in some capacity — are
just as human as the rest of us, we got
a sharp one Sunday when Philadelphia
Eagle head coach Andy Reid’s troubled
son Garrett was found dead in his dorm
room at the club’s training facility in
Lehigh, Penn.
Garrett served as an unofficial strength
coach and was a regular on the sidelines
at practices and in the locker rooms at
games. He got to experience the NFL
without all the bruises and concussions.
The story is familiar, in this case par-
ticularly but also in a general sense: the
29-year-old had a history of drug prob-
lems, especially with heroin, even revel-
ing in being a drug dealer — it gave him
“high status” (no pun intended) — as he
was quoted as saying in the midst of his
legal troubles. He even when to prison
for two years because of it after injuring
another driver in a crash while being high
on heroin.
This is a story of someone who died
“before their time” because of this insidi-
ous “dis-ease.”
It’s a story where we all — unless we
are the worst of cynics — root for him to
win this battle and he seemed on the verge
of beating it lately; at least he seemed to
be staying out of trouble.
Not any more.
Rest in peace.

LONDON (AP) — Five things
to know about Wednesday, Day 12
of the London Olympics:
—Allyson Felix leads American
surge at track.
—May-Treanor, Walsh take
all-American final in beach vol-
leyball.
—Kobe’s long-range display
leads U.S. past Australia in men’s
hoops.
—Attar makes Olympic track
debut for Saudi women.
—Semenya off to solid
Olympic start three years after
gender test.
———
Allyson Felix grinned as she
waited for the official results to
pop up on the scoreboard. She
knew what was coming and was
going to enjoy this moment.
The American sprinter won the
200 meters at the London Games
on Wednesday, sparking a strong
performance for the United States
at Olympic Stadium.
Felix clocked 21.88 seconds to
top Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-
Pryce, who won the 100 four
nights earlier. American Carmelita
Jeter added bronze to go with her
silver in the 100 meters.
Jamaica’s Veronica Campbell-
Brown was fourth after defeating
Felix in the Athens and Beijing
Games. She was trying to become
the first woman to win the same
individual track and field event in
three consecutive Olympics but
couldn’t keep up as Felix pulled
away down the stretch to add
another medal to the two individu-
al silvers and one 4x400 relay gold
she won in the 2008 Olympics.
Aries Merritt also won the 110
hurdles for the U.S. and Brittney
Reese claimed the long jump title.
Team USA had two of the top
three finishers in three of the four
medal events at Olympic Stadium.
World champion Lashinda Demus
was second in the women’s 400
hurdles, losing to Russia’s Natalya
Antyukh.
Usain Bolt and Jamaican team-
mate Yohan Blake each won their
200 semifinal heats. Bolt is trying
to become the first man with two
Olympic golds in the 200 meters.
— The United States also
occupied a couple of spots on the
podium at Horse Guards Parade,
with Misty May-Treanor and Kerri
Walsh Jennings becoming the first
3-time gold medalists in Olympic
beach volleyball history.
The duo beat Jennifer Kessy
and April Ross 21-16, 21-16 in
the all-American final, extending
their Olympic winning streak to
21 matches.
May-Treanor and Walsh
Jennings fell to their knees and
hugged as Ross’ serve went long
on match point, then took the cel-
ebration to the stands.
The Athens, Beijing and now
London gold medalists remained
unbeaten through three Olympics,
losing just one of 43 sets. It was
the Olympic farewell for May-
Treanor, who has said she would
like to have children.
— Another impressive
American team was on display
Wednesday night, with Kobe
Bryant putting on quite a show
from long range.
Bryant made six 3-pointers in
the second half, LeBron James
finished with a triple-double and
the U.S. men’s basketball team
advanced to the semifinals with a
119-86 victory over Australia.
Bryant scored 20 points, flash-
ing three fingers in the air after
his third consecutive 3-pointer in
the fourth quarter had pushed the
game well out of reach and proved
that yes, he would deliver the kind
of game that’s expected of him in
London.
James finished with 11 points,
14 rebounds and 12 assists for the
Americans, who advanced to their
third straight Olympic semifinal
meeting with Argentina. Carmelo
Anthony added 17 points and
Kevin Durant had 14.
— There was more history at
Olympic Stadium during the day.
The crowd roared when Sarah
Attar was introduced during the
morning session and she respond-
ed with a wave, a wide smile and a
bit of a chuckle.
This was one extraordinary
800-meter heat.
Covered from head to toe,
except for her smiling face pok-
ing out from her headscarf, Attar
became the first woman from
Saudi Arabia to compete in track
and field at the Olympics when she
clocked 2 minutes, 44.95 seconds
in her preliminary race.
“This is such a huge honor
and an amazing experience, just
to be representing the women,”
Attar said in an interview with The
Associated Press. “I know that this
can make a huge difference.”
The 19-year-old Attar finished
last in her heat. To her, the time
wasn’t the point.
Her mother is American and
her father is Saudi. She has dual
citizenship, was born in California

FORT JENNINGS — Fort Jennings head
golf coach Todd Hoehn had
nine players on last year’s unit,
which was up from the year
before.
Now entering his 15th year at
the helm, that number increased
to 11 for this fall.
Three of them are experi-
enced from last fall, including
one that will be in his fourth
season of varsity in senior Kurt
Warnecke (first-team all-Put-
nam County League last fall)
and one that will be in his third
season in junior Nathan German.
The third veteran is second-year junior
Josh Wittler.
“We are looking forward to our senior,
Kurt, providing leadership to a young group
of golfers,” Hoehn noted.
However, with Warnecke the only senior
for 2012, this group will have a lot of grow-
ing up to do.
The eight newcomers to the varsity roster
will have the job of off-setting the gradua-
tion losses of Cody Warnecke (4 years) and
Zach Schuerman (4 years), as well as a few
that chose not to go out this
fall.
Included in the mix are
Luke Luebrecht (junior),
Bret Clay (junior), Ryan
Rau (junior), Alex Ketcham
(junior), Collin Wieging
(sophomore), Nick Von
Sossan (sophomore) and
Alex Sealts (freshman).
One girl — junior
Kaylynn Noriega — is out
for the team.
“With 11 golfers, it should
provide an opportunity for good competition
to challenge for varsity positions. We are
looking forward to compete against all our
opponents as the PCL should again be very
competitive this fall,” Hoehn added.
That competition begins Friday with a
PCL dual match at home versus Columbus
Grove. Tee off at the Delphos Country Club
is at 9 a.m.

Dear Annie: Recently, my
husband and I chaperoned a
seven-day office-sponsored
trip for high school sopho-
mores and juniors. My hus-
band, who is in his 50s, is
very outgoing. While on the
trip, he developed quite a
following among the teens,
especially the girls, many of
whom developed a little crush
on him. I brought up the pos-
sibility that these girls would
want to friend him
on Facebook and
we both agreed
it would not be a
good idea.
Now that we
are home, how-
ever, he has, in
fact, friended sev-
eral of the kids,
mostly girls. I do
not have a good
feeling about this,
especially when
so many innocent
actions could be interpreted
as criminal acts. My husband
has worked hard to move up
the ladder at his company
and I worry that he might be
jeopardizing his career.
I have asked that he block
these kids, but he says it’s
no big deal and I’m overre-
acting. He says he wants to
watch them grow up. I have
explained my reservations,
saying these kids are not his
peers and as the adult, he
needs to be more responsible.
My husband and his
friends share a risque sense of
humor and who knows what
would happen if these kids
saw those comments? While
it’s OK that he has friended
our children’s friends (who
are a bit older), I don’t think
it’s appropriate to do so with
children who have no ties
to us. I fear this foolishness
will cause problems. I don’t
want teenagers stalking us. I
don’t want them to see pho-
tographs of us on our chil-
dren’s Facebook pages that
may not be appropriate for
these teens.
Am I being oversensitive
or not? -- To Be or Not To
Be Overreacting
Dear To Be: We under-
stand your trepidation,
although you are expecting a
worst-case scenario that may
not happen. However, when
your husband agreed not to
friend these kids, he should
have kept his word, and
now he needs to back away.
Make sure he confines their
access so they are not privy
to anything personal or inap-
propriate while he gradually
unfriends them. And we rec-
ommend you keep an eye on
things to be sure no lines are
crossed. You seem to have
a better grasp of the pitfalls
than your husband.
Dear Annie: I am a widow
in my late 60s. Four years
ago, I moved to be
closer to my chil-
dren and grandchil-
dren, and it’s been
wonderful.
Recently, I recon-
nected with an old
boyfriend, and we
have fallen in love.
We want to spend
what time we have
left together. The
problem is, I would
have to move to
his home, which is
three hours away. I’m already
experiencing tears and hard
feelings from my family. The
adults I can deal with, but
what do I tell my little grand-
children who say, “We had
you first, Gram”? How do I
make them understand that
my love for them will never
change and that we can still
visit? -- Sad Gram
Dear Gram: It’s sweet
that your family will miss you
so much, but the only way to
make the children understand
is to let them live through
the experience. You are only
three hours away. When they
see how often you visit, call,
write, email, Skype, whatev-
er, they will be able to accept
your new circumstances more
easily.
Dear Annie: I have a solu-
tion for “Maria in Ohio,” who
asked how to word wedding
invitations when the parents
are divorced and remarried to
others. This is how our family
now handles things:
“Together with their par-
ents, Bride Jane’s name and
Groom Joe’s name invite you
to share in their joy as they
exchange wedding vows,”
followed by the date, time
and location.
This is the format, no mat-
ter who is paying for the event
or how much, and it doesn’t
matter how many parents
or stepparents are involved.

cated?) -- B.S.

There’s a lot that farm-
ers can plan for: the type of
crops to grow; how much
acreage those crops will
cover; and when to pick
those crops. But this year, a
widespread drought has left
many Ohio farmers with an
unplanned disaster: fields
dry as a bone and minimal
yields.
According the United
States Department of
Agriculture’s Economic
Research Service, Ohio and
most of the U.S. are in the
midst of the most severe
and extensive drought in at
least 25 years. What looked
to be a bumper crop this
spring is now coming up
dry.
Agriculture and food con-
tribute to more than $107
dollars to our state’s econ-
omy each year. And one out
of every seven Ohio jobs is
connected to growing, pro-
cessing and distributing the
food we eat.
But with nearly 40 per-
cent of agricultural land—
and 65 percent of farms
across the country – expe-
riencing drought this year,
much of Ohio farmers’ pro-
duction is in jeopardy. While
this year’s weather has been
particularly extreme, farm-
ers face the prospect of bad
weather every year.
That’s why, time and
again — in roundtables and
over coffee, on farms and
at forums — Ohioans have
told me that they
need a strong farm
bill. And I’m fight-
ing for one.
In June, the
Senate passed a
bipartisan, 5-year
farm bill that
includes a stron-
ger and more
mar ket - or i ent ed
safety net, better
crop insurance, a
streamlined package of con-
servation programs and pro-
visions that save taxpayers
more than $23 billion over
the next 10 years.
The bill also includes and
makes permanent disaster
assistance for producers
who lose livestock, trees and
fruit and vegetable produc-
tion due to natural disasters
such as drought, fire and
frost. Many of these pro-
grams were included in the
2008 farm bill but expired
last year. Without action,
critical risk-management
and disaster-assistance pro-
grams like these won’t be
there for farmers who need
them.
Providing farmers the
assistance they need to get
through the ongoing drought
is a shared priority. But in
Washington, there
is currently a differ-
ence of opinion as to
how to provide this
assistance.
My preference
is to pass a biparti-
san 5-year farm bill
— like the Senate’s
Agriculture Reform,
Food, and Jobs Act
— that includes
substantial disaster
assistance, farm program
reform, investments in con-
servation and rural commu-
nities, while also reducing
the deficit.
Unfortunately, instead of
passing the Senate’s bipar-
tisan farm bill, the U.S.
House of Representatives is
opting for a disaster pack-
age that fails to provide pro-
ducers with long-term cer-
tainty and the smarter, more
efficient safety net they
deserve. To add insult to
injury, the House finances
this temporary solution with
significant cuts to long-term
investments in soil, water
and wildlife conservation.
As of last week, five Ohio
counties — Fulton, Williams,
Defiance, Paulding and Van
Wert — were among the
1,300 counties nationwide
that have been designated as
disaster areas by the USDA.
And although some USDA
emergency loan programs
are available today, farm-
ers and livestock producers
need certainty to plan and
manage their businesses for
the long-term.
The current farm bill is
set to expire on September
30th. We can’t let this
happen. Ohio farmers and
ranchers need a long-term
bill to pull them through
this summer’s drought and
assist them as they contin-
ue in the future. The 2012
farm bill must help Ohio’s
rural communities to cre-
ate jobs and strengthen our
economy.
That’s why I will contin-
ue to fight to pass a 5-year
farm bill. It’s the respon-
sible thing to do and in the
midst of drought, Ohio agri-
culture depends on it.

COLUMBUS GROVE — Columbus
Grove head golf coach Travis Gallmeier
has four years under his coaching belt at the
helm of the Bulldogs, compiling a 55-38
overall mark.
With three returning starters from last
year’s group, he has some cogs to build
around but also some holes to fill entering
2012.
“We return three players from our varsi-
ty six from last year,” Gallmeier explained.
“We need to fill in some spots to be com-
petitive in the Putnam County League
and Northwest Conference. We have some
young guys who haven’t seen much varsity
action that will need to step up.”
Three players who have seen a lot of
varsity action return in last year’s number
2 man, third-year senior Kody Griffith,
as well as number 5, Clay Diller (second
year), and the number 6, third-year senior
Jacob Roebke.
Those who will need to get up to speed
quickly to replace the graduated Taylor
Giesige, Matt Silver and Jeff Birkmeier are
promising newcomers Tony Koch (senior),
Josh Tussing (senior), Joe Schroeder
(senior), Nick Schroeder (junior), Brandon
Hoffman (sophomore), Wyatt Mayberry
(freshman), Xavier Aguirre (freshman) and
Logan Diller (freshman).
The Bulldogs will commence the new
campaign Friday versus Fort Jennings in
a PCL dual match at the Delphos Country
Club. Tee off is at 9 a.m.

and runs track at Pepperdine
University near Los Angeles.
Attar wanted to represent Saudi
Arabia at the Olympics as a way of
inspiring women.
“For women in Saudi Arabia,
I think this can really spark some-
thing to get more involved in
sports, to become more athletic,”
she added. “Maybe in the next
Olympics, we can have a very
strong team to come.”
— Making her Olympic debut
three years after being forced
to undergo gender tests, Caster
Semenya of South Africa finished
second in her 800 heat.
Semenya was sidelined for
nearly a year while track and
field’s governing body decided
whether to allow her to compete
after she won the 2009 world title
at age 18. She was tested and even-
tually cleared to return to action in
2010, then was the runner-up at
last year’s world championships.
Semenya carried South
Africa’s flag at the opening cer-
emony in London and is a leading
medal contender. She ran her heat
in 2:00.71, behind the 2:00.47 run
by Alysia Johnson Montano of the
United States.
The rest of the Olympic action
Wednesday:
VOLLEYBALL
The U.S. men’s volleyball
team got off to a strong start at the
London Olympics but it’s headed
home without a medal.
The defending Olympic cham-
pions lost 28-26, 25-20, 25-20 to
Italy in the quarterfinals.
U.S. setter Donald Suxho bent
over with his hands on his knees
and shook his head as Italy cel-
ebrated the win at Earls Court.
And after shaking hands with the
Italians, the Americans turned to
applaud the many U.S. fans in the
crowd.
Dragan Travica and captain
Cristian Savani each had four aces
for Italy, which will face Brazil in
Friday’s semifinals. Savani fin-
ished with 19 points.
Russia takes on Bulgaria in the
other semi.
CYCLING - BMX
Two spectacular crashes marred
the start of the BMX competition
and time trial world champion
Caroline Buchanan of Australia
and Raymon van der Biezen of the
Netherlands posted the best times
of the seeding runs.
On the challenging course sit-
ting next to the London Velodrome,
American rider Brooke Crain
crashed in the home stretch in a
section made of a succession of
small jumps. She managed to get
back on her bike to cross the finish
line but officially was listed as not
finishing. If she’s able to continue,
she would be given the 16th and
final seed.
Crain was a late replacement on
the U.S. team for Arielle Martin,
who was hospitalized after a crash
during a final training run on July
30 in California.
Latvian rider Edzus Treimanis
also went down on the track at the
same spot, falling face first.
SAILING
The U.S. was shut out of
Olympic sailing medals for the
first time since 1936 when wom-
en’s match racing skipper Anna
Tunnicliffe was beaten in the quar-
terfinals by Finland.
Tunnicliffe, who was born in
England and moved to the United
States when she was 12, was the
only remaining American with a
chance for a medal.
While the Americans under-
performed, the Australians contin-
ued to pile up victories.
The 49er crew of Nathan
Outteridge and Iain Jensen sailed
three laps of honor to collect the
gold medal they had clinched two
days earlier.
BOXING
Middleweight Claressa Shields
dominated Kazakhstan’s Marina
Volnova in the semifinals of the
first Olympic women’s tourna-
ment, earning a spot in the title

Tomorrow’s
Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
www.delphosherald.com
FRIDAY, AUGUST 10, 2012
Several new, important
relationships might take root in the
year ahead, suddenly replacing a
number of alliances that have proven
to be unproductive. Interesting new
times are indicated, bringing you
many fun-loving friends.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be
friendly and cordial to everybody,
but avoid getting too deeply involved
with any one person. Friendships are a
bit fragile at present, and it won’t take
much to shatter a close bond.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) --
When it comes to dealing with people
whose aims are a bit different than
yours, things could quickly get a bit
touchy and erupt into full-blown
unpleasantness.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
You’re likely to have a tendency
to promise one thing but do quite
another. Take all your commitments
very seriously, so you won’t have to
make both alibis and amends.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If
you’re going to take any gambles, do
so in areas that you’re very familiar
with. The odds might be outlandishly
against you in murky or untested
situations.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) -- When you allow your logical
qualities to supersede your feelings,
you can be a pretty good judge of
character. Today, however, your
emotions could be calling all the
shots.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- Have someone check your work if
you have to perform a tedious mental
assignment. The more facts and
figures involved, the more chances
there are to make mistakes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Regardless of what your better
judgment is telling you to do, you are
likely to ignore it and do something
rather foolish that will be both costly
and counterproductive.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --
Instead of being more persistent when
challenged, you might buckle under
pressure. Have the courage of your
convictions.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Impatience could be your worst
enemy if you’re not careful. Don’t
allow yourself to get angry just
because colleagues don’t immediately
go along with your plans.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) --
Be extra mindful of your possessions
or resources. If you leave valuables
unguarded, it could easily tempt
certain people who have sticky fingers
to latch onto some of them.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) --
Continuity of purpose is essential if
you hope to achieve your objectives.
Don’t think you can accomplish your
goals or hit your target with a series of
lucky shots.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) --
Do not put on any airs and affectations,
or boast about things you’ve never
accomplished. Your creditability will
be dashed if your story is checked out
and found to be untrue.

News orgs seek Colo. shooting documents in court
By P. SOLOMON BANDA
Associated Press
CENTENNIAL, Colo. — News media
organizations were set Thursday to ask the
judge in the Colorado theater shooting case
to unseal court documents and scale back a
gag order that bars a university from releas-
ing details about a former student who is the
alleged gunman.
The Associated Press and 20 other news
organizations want Chief District Judge
William Sylvester to unseal documents that
could provide the public with details about
James Holmes and the massacre in Aurora on
July 20.
The shooting during a midnight showing of
the latest Batman movie left 12 people dead and
injured 58 others. Holmes, a 24-year-old former
Ph.D. student at the University of Colorado,
is charged with multiple counts of first-degree
murder and attempted first-degree murder.
Court officials said Holmes was expected to
attend the hearing.
Arapahoe County prosecutors argue releas-
ing documents could jeopardize their investi-
gation. Holmes’ attorneys want to ensure he
receives a fair trial.
Sylvester’s order sealing documents
includes the case file, which makes it impos-
sible for observers to understand prosecution
and defense arguments on motions that are
referenced by number only.
Sylvester on July 23 also issued a gag order
that bars officials at the University of Colorado
from responding to public records requests
concerning Holmes.
The judge said doing so would jeopardize
the county’s investigation. Aurora officials
have cited the order in declining to speak about
the city’s response to the shootings.
“It is performing our watchdog role to
look at the process and try to assess for the
public how the police have handled the case
and assembled the evidence and assure for the
defendant and the public that things are being
conducted open and fairly,” said Gregory
Moore, editor of The Denver Post. “It goes
way beyond what’s necessary to protect the
defendant’s right to a fair trial.”
Sylvester could make a decision Thursday
or at a later time.
Arapahoe County District Attorney Carol
Chambers, through a spokeswoman, declined
comment ahead of the hearing, citing the gag
order.
Holmes’ public defender, Daniel King, did
not return a message left with the Colorado
State Public Defender’s office.
Court documents, which include search
warrants, inventories of evidence collected by
police, and police interviews with witnesses,
can be an important source of information for
the public.
Little is known about how police say
Holmes prepared for the shooting at a mid-
night showing of “The Dark Knight Rises,” or
how they say he rigged his nearby apartment
with explosives. Aurora Police Chief Daniel
Oates has said the explosives were designed to
kill anybody who entered Holmes’ apartment,
including first-responders.
Steven D. Zansberg, an attorney represent-
ing the news media consortium, said the judge
should at least explain which documents have
been sealed and why.
In Colorado, this type of legal battle has
been seen before.
In 2007, an Arapahoe County judge sealed
an indictment in the case of a missing 6-year-
old girl whom authorities determined had been
dead for at least two years before her father,
Aaron Thompson, reported her missing. The
state Supreme Court ordered the indictment
unsealed in 2008, allowing the public to learn
the charges against Thompson. Thompson was
convicted of fatal child abuse in 2009.
When Los Angeles Lakers player Kobe
Bryant faced sexual assault charges in Vail
in 2003, it took a media challenge to unseal
an affidavit in which police laid out their case
for an arrest. Bryant maintained his innocence,
and prosecutors dropped the case in 2005.
A news media challenge led to last year’s
release of an arrest affidavit in a sexual assault
case involving former Denver Broncos cor-
nerback Perrish Cox, who faced charges filed
by Chambers’ office. Cox was acquitted in
March.
Defense attorneys and prosecutors routinely
ask judges to keep some documents sealed,
often because the documents contain informa-
tion a jury won’t hear at trial, said Denver
criminal defense attorney Daniel Recht, who
also argues First Amendment cases.
But Moore noted that some Colorado judg-
es have sealed entire court dockets under the
argument that the mere fact of media coverage
will damage a case.
In his ruling to unseal documents in the Cox
case, Douglas County District Judge Paul A.
King rejected that notion.
“There can be no presumption that every-
one in the jury panel will read, follow and find
important the media accounts in this case,”
King wrote.
Mars crater where rover landed looks ‘Earth-like’
Dry summer means more
encounters with hungry bears
By MARY ESCH
Associated Press
OLD FORGE, N.Y. — With their normal summer diet of
greens and berries shriveled by summer heat or drought in many
spots nationwide, hungry bears are rummaging through garbage,
ripping through screens and crawling into cars in search of sus-
tenance.
In the Adirondack Mountain village of Old Forge in north-
ern New York state, a black bear clawed through the wall of a
candy store on Main Street last week; another one locked itself
in a minivan and shredded the interior in a frantic struggle to
escape, according to the state Department of Environmental
Conservation.
“We’ve been here 17 years and never had a problem with
bears,” said Roslyn Starer, who runs the Candy Cottage in Old
Forge with her son, Larry. “But it’s been so dry the normal foods
in the woods just aren’t growing. So they’re coming into town.”
Starer came to the shop one morning to find a bear had ripped
a big hole in the wall. “If it had gone much further it would have
gotten into the shop, and the damage would have been devastat-
ing,” she said.
This summer’s bear troubles aren’t isolated to New York.
In eastern Kentucky, the U.S. Forest Service closed two camp-
grounds for a weekend at the end of July because of bears raiding
picnic baskets and coolers. Biologists blamed the drought-related
berry shortage.
In Colorado, where drought has dried up the chokecherries and
serviceberries bears rely on, a bear and three cubs broke into more
than a dozen cars in Aspen looking for food in June.
A surveillance camera in a candy store in Estes Park, Colo.,
showed a bear making seven trips inside for candy in 15 minutes.
A bear that broke into occupied homes there last month was put
down because it posed a danger to people, one official said, noting
the drought has made the intelligent animals even more resource-
ful in finding food.
Weather-related bear problems are nothing new, as natural
food supplies vary from year to year depending on rainfall and
other factors. But this summer has been a particularly busy one,
wildlife biologists in New York say.
“This has been an interesting year for bears, especially in the
Catskills,” said Jeremy Hurst, a big game biologist with the New
York state Department of Environmental Conservation, referring
to the mountain range north of New York City. “In multiple com-
munities, bears have gotten into people’s homes, in some cases
even when people were at home. Half a dozen to a dozen bears
have been euthanized. More have been trapped and relocated.”
While property has been damaged by foraging bears, no
human injuries have been reported in New York this year.
In the Catskills last month, there were three times as many seri-
ous bear issues such as home and vehicle break-ins as there were
in the same period last year, Hurst said.
“Typically, complaints of bear damage peak in late spring, but
this year, the frequency of bear complaints picked up strongly
with the drought in July,” he said.

AP Science Writer
PASADENA, Calif. —
The ancient Martian crater
where the Curiosity rover
landed looks strikingly simi-
lar to the Mojave Desert in
California with its looming
mountains and hanging haze,
scientists say.
“The first impression that
you get is how Earth-like this
seems looking at that land-
scape,” chief scientist John
Grotzinger of the California
Institute of Technology said
Wednesday.
Overnight, the car-size
rover poked its head out for
the first time since settling in
Gale Crater, peered around
and returned a black-and-
white self-portrait and pan-
orama that’s still being pro-
cessed.
It provided the best view
so far of its destination since
touching down Sunday night
after nailing an intricate cho-
reography. During the last
few seconds, a rocket-pow-
ered spacecraft hovered as
cables lowered Curiosity to
the ground.
In the latest photos,
Curiosity looked out toward
the northern horizon. Nearby
were scour marks in the sur-
face blasted by thrusters,
which kicked up a swirl of
dust. There were concerns
that Curiosity got dusty, but
scientists said that was not
the case.
“We do see a thin coat-
ing of dust, but nothing too
bad,” said Justin Maki, imag-
ing scientist at NASA’s Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, which
manages the $2.5 billion mis-
sion.
Scientists were giddy about
the scour marks because they
exposed bedrock below —
information that should help
them better understand the
landing site.
Since landing, Curiosity
has zipped home a stream
of low-resolution pictures
taken by tiny cameras under
the chassis and a camera at
the end of its robotic arm,
which remained stowed. It
also sent back a low-quality
video showing the last 2 1/2
minutes of its descent.
The rover successfully
raised its mast packed with
high-resolution and naviga-
tion cameras. With the mast
up, it can begin its shutterbug
days in force, including tak-
ing a 360-degree color view
of its surroundings as early
as today.
Grotzinger said he was
struck by the Martian land-
scape, which appeared
diverse. There seemed to be
harder material underneath
the gravelly surface, he said.
“It kind of makes you feel
at home,” he said. “We’re
looking at a place that feels
really comfortable.”
Mars, of course, is very
different from Earth. It’s a
frigid desert constantly bom-
barded by radiation. There are
geological signs that it was
a warmer and wetter place
once upon a time. One of the
mission’s goals is to figure
out how Mars transformed.
After sailing 352 mil-
lion miles and eight months,
Curiosity parked its six
wheels near the Martian
equator, where it will spend
the next two years poking
into rocks and soil in search
of the chemical ingredients of
life. It is the most expensive
and ambitious mission yet to
Mars.
Its ultimate destination is
a mountain towering from
the center of the crater floor.
Preliminary estimates indi-
cate Curiosity landed four
miles away from the base
of Mount Sharp, thought to
contain intriguing signs of
past water — a starting point
to learning whether microbial
life could exist.
Before the 1-ton, nuclear-
powered Curiosity can start
roving, it has to undergo
several weeks of tedious but
essential health checks.
Since it was too heavy
to land using traditional air
bags, it used a heat shield,
parachute, rockets and cables.

Face-chewing victim speaks
out in police interview
MIAMI (AP) — A homeless man whose face was mostly
chewed off in a bizarre assault alongside a busy South Florida
highway told police that his attacker “just ripped me to ribbons.”
In a recorded interview with investigators, Ronald Poppo
said the man who approached him initially seemed friendly.
Then the man, Rudy Eugene, seemed to become angry about
something that had happened on Miami Beach, where thou-
sands were partying through the Memorial Day weekend.
“For a while he was acting nice. Then he got flustered. He
probably remembered something that happened on the beach
and was not happy about it,” Poppo told investigators in the
interview that was taped July 19 and first reported Wednesday
by Miami news station WFOR-TV.
Poppo said Eugene then “turned berserk” and attacked with
his bare hands, screaming that both men would die.
“He just ripped me to ribbons. He chewed up my face. He
plucked out my eyes. Basically, that’s all there is to say about
it,” Poppo said.
Poppo, 65, remains in a long-term care facility after losing
an eye, his eyebrows, his nose and parts of his forehead and
right cheek in the May 26 attack. His other eye was severely
damaged.
Doctors at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma
Center said last month that Poppo was in good spirits, talking
and walking around, but would need several more surgeries
before he could explore the options for reconstructing his face.
Eugene, 31, was shot and killed by a Miami police officer
during the attack on the Macarthur Causeway just off down-
town Miami. Lab tests found only marijuana in Eugene’s sys-
tem, but no other drugs or alcohol.
Poppo said Eugene had said something about not being able
“to score,” adding that Eugene “must have been souped up on
something.”
In the police interview, Poppo sometimes seems confused
about some details of the attack. He described Eugene wearing
a green shirt and getting out of a car, but surveillance video
recorded from security cameras on The Miami Herald build-
ing showed a naked Eugene walking up to Poppo as cars and
bicyclists zipped by. Poppo was reclining on the sidewalk near
the parking garage where he lived.
Police asked Poppo whether he provoked Eugene.
“What could provoke an attack of that type?” Poppo said. “I
didn’t curse at the guy or say anything mean or nasty.”
Poppo also thanked the police for saving his life, saying the
officer who shot Eugene arrived in the nick of time.
Ex-jail cells serve as artist studios
Komen president, founder resign
By DAVID RUNK
Associated Press
DETROIT — For Hugo Navarro, the 5-by-9-foot jail cell that
serves as his studio in southwest Detroit is an admittedly creepy
place to immerse himself in his work.
Unlike jailhouse artists who find creative inspiration behind
bars, however, the 56-year-old is there by choice. He paints at
555 Nonprofit Gallery and Studios, a decade-old arts organiza-
tion that this year moved into its new home in the Detroit Police
Department’s former Third Precinct station.
The city closed the building in 2005 as part of a department-
wide reorganization, and the former lobby where residents once
could walk in to report crimes now is an airy gallery. Detectives’
offices now serve as classroom and studio space. And poten-
tially claustrophobic cells — bars still on their doors — are
fostering creativity.
“I didn’t really have anything in mind before going to my
jail cell,” said Navarro, whose colorful paintings of Detroit’s
shuttered Michigan Central Depot and fires gutting homes
adorn some of the cells near where he’s worked for the past few
months. “I just let myself go and let my inside do the work.”
The Third Precinct renovation is among a handful of proj-
ects nationwide converting old police facilities, including
one in Chicago that is becoming live theater venues and one
in Philadelphia that is being converted into homes. For Carl
Goines, a co-founder of 555, says the project is a balancing act
between preserving parts of the police station’s past and making
it a welcoming place for artists.
“This is a space that’s taking on a new life. It’s a space that’s
becoming inspirational,” said Goines, a sculptor. “It pushes
them to take their work to a new level.”
555 is leasing its new home from Southwest Housing
Solutions, a nonprofit community developer that bought the for-
mer precinct in 2009 and spent about $2 million on the project.
Garage space at the building houses Detroit Farm and Garden, a
gardening, farming and landscape supply store.
While Southwest Housing Solutions traditionally is involved
in residential projects in southwest Detroit, developing roughly
$100 million in housing and real estate, making sure the former
precinct didn’t languish as vacancy in one of the city’s stronger
neighborhoods made its reuse more important.
“It’s exactly what we wanted it to be,” said Tim Thorland,
the developer’s executive director. “The great thing about the
gallery space is that it’s a continuous work in progress.”
In Philadelphia, the former 26th Precinct Police Station,
which sat vacant for years, is being renovated with the upper
floors as apartments, said architect Victor Barr Jr. of VLBJR
Architects Inc. Much of its history as a neighborhood law
enforcement hub was erased by time and earlier reuse, but
salvaged architectural details are being recreated to bring back
some of its character. Arches in the basement, Barr said, mark
where cells once stood.
In Chicago, the Griffin Theatre Company acquired a former
police station and plans to start construction in September on the
first of two live performance spaces. The building’s large cells
are too massive to remove, said William Massolia, a founding
member, so they’ll be used to house a green room, dressing
rooms and a box office.
“We’re going to be using some of what was there and not
disguise the fact that it was a police station and a jail,” Massolia
said.
At 555, an official opening event is planned for Sept. 14 and
the building is a work in progress. In years to come, part of a sec-
ond floor that once was home to a locker room used by officers
could become a dance studio. A gym where officers once could
play basketball might be a place for performances.
That raw potential is part of what makes it attractive.
Elizabeth Sutton, 42, a photographer who is part of 555’s board
and an educator at the Detroit Institute of Arts, is turning first-
floor space formerly used as detectives’ offices into a darkroom.
She said the building’s past enters into her thinking as she works
there.

DALLAS — The president and the founder of Susan G. Komen
for the Cure are both stepping down from their roles, the nation’s
largest breast cancer foundation said in announcing a major leader-
ship shakeup Wednesday. The high-profile departures come in the
wake of continuing fallout from Komen’s decision earlier this year
to briefly end funding for Planned Parenthood.
President Liz Thompson will leave Komen next month and
founder Nancy Brinker, who has long been the public face of the
charity, will relinquish her chief executive’s role for a position
focused on fundraising and strategic planning, according to a state-
ment from the Dallas-based organization.
It’s the latest shakeup since news emerged in January that Komen
had decided to eliminate its funding for Planned Parenthood for
breast-cancer screening. Komen said it made the decision because
Planned Parenthood was the focus of a congressional investigation,
which was launched at the urging of anti-abortion activists.
Komen restored the funding after a three-day firestorm, but it
didn’t quell the criticism. At least five other high-ranking execu-
tives also have resigned, and organizers of many Race for the Cure
events saw their participation numbers drop.
Brinker founded the organization in 1982, two years after her
sister, Susan G. Komen, died of breast cancer. Thompson joined the
group in 2008 to head research and scientific programs, and she was
promoted to president in 2010.
According to the statement, which makes no reference to the
Planned Parenthood decision or fallout, Thompson said the time was
right for her to pursue other opportunities. She hailed the organiza-
tion’s leadership in pursuing a cure for breast cancer and for helping
women and men with cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment.
Her resignation was followed, in quick succession, by Katrina
McGhee, executive vice president and chief marketing officer;
Nancy Macgregor, vice president of global networks; and Joanna
Newcomb, director of affiliate strategy and planning.
And organizers of individual Race for the Cure events — 5K
runs and walks that account for most of the charity’s fundraising —
saw participation decline by as much as 30 percent. Most also saw
their fundraising numbers sink, although a couple of races brought
in more money.
Race organizers have acknowledged the effect of the Planned
Parenthood debacle, which angered people on both sides of the
abortion debate.
In response to questions Wednesday about the controversy,
Komen spokeswoman Andrea Rader said “I think Liz (Thompson)
made clear in her statement that we feel that we’ve moved past
that.”
The foundation has invested $1.3 billion in community pro-
grams over 30 years to pay for screenings, education, and financial
and psychological support for those fighting breast cancer, accord-
ing to Komen’s statement.
