Jennings sets hearing for zoning variance
FALL SPORTS PREVIEW 2012
Approximately 300 concerned residents surrounded St. John’s Church in Delphos Tuesday to ensure the family of the late Chief Petty Officer John Keith Bemis could grieve and find closure uninterrupted Tuesday. A group from Topeka, Kan., had listed the Bemis funeral on their web site as a possible protest site.
Long to speak at Faith 4 Freedom
The Delphos Knights of Columbus will host Ohio Christian Alliance President Christopher Long at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the K of C hall for the Faith 4 Freedom meeting. Long will discuss issues regarding the HHS mandate and pending legislation that affects families and people of faith, separation of church and state issues and rules about what clergy can and cannot say from the pulpit. The public is welcome.
Fort Jennings Village administration will hold a public hearing on a zoning variance at 7 p.m. on Sept. 4 in council chambers at the library. Rose Boggs of 80 St. Joseph St. would like to build on a regulated property setback.
Hundreds hold vigil for the fallen
erful message our town was sending to the Bemis family and all other military families in our country. It was beautiful. Ideally, every military memorial should look like the one we witnessed today.” Chief Petty Officer John Keith Bemis, 30, was buried with full military honors provided by the Navy, with help from a U.S. Marine Corps firing party. Both military groups came from Perrysburg. A patriotic group of motorcycle enthusiasts stood at attention, holding American flags, on the outskirts of the funeral detail, along with the Delphos Veterans Council color guard.
After prayers and words of comfort, the flag Bemis honored with a 12-year military career was folded by fellow sailors in dress blue uniforms and given to his mother, Sue Bemis. Bemis was on active duty in the U.S. Navy in San Diego. He began his career aboard the USS Lake Champlain and provided support to ground troops during the first campaign in Afghanistan. He was Sailor of the Month in February 2004 for his efforts in preventing a fire that could have destroyed the ship. He served See VIGIL, page 10

City OKs ordinance to regulate adult entertainment
BY NANCY SPENCER firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — City council voted unanimously Monday to pass an ordinance outlining the municipality’s regulations on adult entertainment businesses. These include adult arcades, bookstores, novelty stores, video stores, cabarets and movies theaters. The ordinance bans such establishments within most of the city limits, stating “no adult entertainment business may be established in any zoning district other than an I-industrial District and is such districts may not be established within 300 feet of: a church; public or private educational facility, including child day care facilities, nursery schools and preschools; the boundary of a residential district as defined in the zoning code; a public park or recreation area; the property line of a lot devoted to a residential use as defined in the zoning code; an entertainment business which is oriented primarily toward children or family entertainment; or U.S. 30.” Council also approved $2,500 as the city’s portion of 10 percent of an application for a $100,000 grant to study the feasibility of a centralized dispatching center. Other entities in the study will include the Allen County Sheriff’s Office, Lima Police Department and Shawnee Township Police Department. The grant will be run through the Ohio Department of Development under the Local Government Innovative Fund. The study must demonstrate probable success to receive further funding under the LGIF.

Greg Berquist said the study does not obligate the city. “It just shows we’ve done our due diligence looking at the proposal of centralized dispatching,” he said. “We need to study all the ins and outs, what can be saved, etc. We have to do the study to be eligible for grants if a centralized dispatch is found to be desirable.” Berquist also announced residents will receive an opt-out document from First Energy Solutions sometime in September. First Energy is the city’s choice for its electrical aggregation program which saves residents money on the generation portion of their electric bill. “If residents choose to participate in the program they do nothing.

FORT JENNINGS — Village council will open bids for its upcoming sanitary sewer project at Fort Jennings Park at 7 p.m. Sept. 18. According to Mayor Jim Smith, the bids will then be forwarded to Poggemeyer Design Group for review. Council will hold a special meeting on Sept. 28 to choose the successful bidder. “We aren’t in a hurry to get this project started,’ Smith said. “I think they prefer to do these kinds of projects in the winter when the ground is harder and it’s easier to dig. According to the grant rules, the project must be completed by July 1. That’s the only stipulation and I don’t thing there will be a problem with that.” The grant was approved through the Ohio Public Works Commission State
Capital Improvement program. The project’s estimated cost is $42,525 with the grant totaling $24,428. It is a 50-50 match. A sanitary sewer line will be installed from Second Street north of Fort Jennings State Bank to and under the Auglaize River and to the Fort Jennings Park Board recreation building at the west entrance of the park. The new sanitary sewer line makes it possible to install new restrooms at the park in the future. Smith told council he has been in contact with a representative from the Purple Heart Association about Fort Jennings becoming a Purple Heart Village, the first in Ohio. “All we need to do is pick a day and make a resolution See JENNINGS, page 10

Lima native and humorist Phyllis Diller dies at 95
By HILLEL ITALIE The Associated Press NEW YORK — Some of the most promising talent in show business was on the bill one day and night in 1955 at San Francisco’s Purple Onion: Eartha Kitt and Alice Ghostley; Paul Lynde and Robert Clary; a singer and dancer with the stage name Maya Angelou, and an eccentric former housewife, a few years older than her fellow performers, with the married name Phyllis Diller. Angelou’s family, including two small children (Clyde and Joyce), were seated in the front row. Years later, she would remember watching Diller and wondering how her guests would respond to her friend’s “aura of madness.” “Black people rarely forgave whites for being ragged, unkempt and uncaring. There was a saying which explained the disapproval, ‘You been white all your life. Ain’t got no further along than this? What ails you?”’ Angelou wrote in “Singin’ and Swingin’ and Getting Merry Like Christmas,” a memoir published in 1976. “When Phyllis came on stage Clyde almost fell off the chair and Joyce nearly knocked over her Shirley Temple. The comedienne, dressed outrageously and guffawing like a hiccoughing horse and a bell clapper, chose to play to the two children. They were charmed and so convulsed they gasped for breath.” The housewife soon became a star. “AH-HHAAAAAAAAAAAA-HA-HA-HA! Diller, the cackling template for Joan Rivers, Sarah Silverman and so many others, died Monday morning in her Los Angeles home at age CLEVELAND (AP) — A northeast Ohio woman convicted of bilking $60 million from nearly 900 investors in a failed development project has been sentenced to nine years in prison after a longrunning dispute over how much time she would serve behind bars. Joanne Schneider, 71, pleaded guilty Monday to 11 felony charges in a Ponzi scheme she ran with her husband, prosecutor’s spokeswoman Nicole DiSanto said Tuesday. DiSanto said the Lakewood woman will get credit for the 2 1/2 years she’s already served, reducing the time she has left to serve to 6 1/2 years. In Ponzi schemes, investors are given payments that come from money by new investors. The couple had proposed a multimillion-dollar retail and entertainment development in the Cleveland suburb of Parma Heights that was never built. Joanne Schneider’s attor-

ney, Paul Mancino, said Tuesday that she chose to plead guilty rather than face the possibility of a longer sentence if convicted at trial. Schneider’s husband, Alan Schneider, who prosecutors said played a lesser role in the scheme, was put on probation after pleading guilty to security and theft charges in 2009, according to DiSanto. His wife pleaded guilty to the investment charges and was sentenced in 2009 to three years in prison by a Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court judge. But the county prosecutor’s office appealed that sentence, arguing there was a 10-year minimum sentence required for one of the charges — engaging in a pattern of corrupt activities. A state appeals court agreed and vacated Schneider’s three-year sentence, sending it back to the Cuyahoga County court where Schneider was then sentenced in 2010 to 10
95. She faced the end, fittingly, “with a smile on her face,” said longtime manager Milton Suchin. Diller, who suffered a nearfatal heart attack in 1999, was found by her son, Perry Diller. The cause of her death has not been released. She wasn’t the first woman to crack jokes on stage; Gracie Allen had been getting laughs for decades playing dumb for George Burns. But Diller was among the first who didn’t need a man around. The only guy in her act was a husband named “Fang,” who was never seen and didn’t exist. “We lost a comedy legend today,” Ellen DeGeneres wrote on Twitter. “Phyllis Diller was the queen of the one-liners. She was a pioneer.” Tweeted Barbra Streisand: “I adored her. She was wondrous spirit who was great to me.” Rivers added that she and her daughter had lunched with Diller last month. “I’m beyond saddened by the death of Phyllis Diller. We were friends,” Rivers wrote. “The only tragedy is that Phyllis Diller was the last from an era that insisted a woman had to look funny in order to be funny.” Vicki Lawrence said Diller was a pioneer in a male dominated industry. “And yet, she was one of the nicest, kindest, funniest, sincer-

est women I have ever known,” she said. “She had such a gentle, hysterical way of laughing at herself without ever making us feel uncomfortable about laughing with her.” The Friars Club released a statement noting that in 1988 Diller was among the first women admitted — legitimately. A few years earlier, she had snuck in for a Sid Caesar roast, dressed as a man. “Phyllis Diller came through a mine field of male comedians when she arrived on the comedy scene and she defused them all,” Tim Conway said. “She won her place in the Hall of Comedy as the First Lady.” Born Phyllis Driver in Lima, Ohio, she married Sherwood Diller right out of school (Bluffton College) and was a housewife for several years before getting outside work. She was an advertising writer for a radio station when the Purple Onion helped launch her. She made her network TV debut as a contestant on Groucho Marx’s game show, “You Bet Your Life.” Diller, asked if she was married: “Yes, I’ve worn a wedding ring for 18 years.” Marx replied: “Really? Well, two more payments and it’ll be all yours.” She credited the self-help book, “The Magic of Believing” by Claude M. Bristol, with giving her the courage to enter the business. Over the years, she would recommend it to aspiring entertainers, even buying it for them sometimes. Diller worked steadily for decades, in nightclubs and on television. She built her standup act around the persona of the corner-cutting housewife (”I bury a lot of my ironing in the backyard”) with bizarre looks, a wardrobe to match (by “Omar of Omaha”) and the faithful “Fang.”

Ohio WWII vet is focus of Ex-owner trying to win back Ohio granddaughter’s project
TOLEDO (AP) — A former owner of an Ohio hot dog eatery made famous on the TV series “M-A-S-H” is serving up another attempt at regaining control of the company. He’s asking an appeals court in Toledo to nullify the sale of Tony Packo’s. Robin Horvath is one of two cousins who have fought for more than a year over the ownership of Tony Packo’s after a bank foreclosed on its loans and a court-appointed third party was put in charge. Representatives of a private restaurant group in Toledo finalized their purchase of the chain last February. Tony Packo’s became a household name in the 1970s when actor Jamie Farr portrayed a homesick U.S. soldier in the Korean War who longed for Packo’s hot dogs.
President of University of Cincinnati resigns
By DAN SEWELL The Associated Press CINCINNATI — The president of the University of Cincinnati resigned Tuesday for what the school calls “personal reasons.” No other information was disclosed immediately on the sudden departure of Gregory Williams, who became president three years ago. The school’s enrollment has hit record highs during his tenure, with some 42,400 students this year. The board of trustees said Provost Santa Ono was appointed interim president. It said more information would be released later on a search committee for a new president. The board, which met in executive session Tuesday, said in its statement that trustees were “most appreciative

COLUMBUS (AP) — Democratic county commissioners in northeast Ohio have extended a building’s operating hours to urge election officials to permit early voting on weekends. Commissioners in Mahoning County adopted a resolution Tuesday setting weekend hours for the county building that houses the board of elections. The resolution states that with the Saturday and Sunday building hours, the board can allow early voting in October. Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted has ordered election boards in Ohio’s 88 counties to have the same hours on weekdays and have no hours on weekends. The county’s board has already agreed to follow Husted’s directed hours. And board chairman Mark Munroe, a Republican, says the building’s availability has never been an issue.

go through it again, I would think of a few more things, not all lies,” Worcester said of his time with his granddaughter. Sharing his memories was “therapeutic,” he said. “I was surprised she was interested,” he said. Klise said now that she has graduated, she plans to do some volunteer work in Mexico and eventually get a master’s degree in public history. She said it was interesting to note that her grandfather was just one year older than she is now when he was shot down. “I would like to think that I could keep my cool and focus on the mission,” she said. Klise said it is important that these stories and those of vets from more recent conflicts be recorded. Worcester said he last shared the story of his capture with a group of ex-prisoners who met in Wooster. The group is disbanding because so many of its members have died. “World War II was the big thing in my lifetime and everybody’s lifetime who is my age,” he said. Worcester comes from a family of survivors, said his daughter, Mary Newell, who lives in Minneapolis. She said one of the family’s ancestors is John Howland, who came to America on the Mayflower.

of Dr. Williams’ service and contributions to the university.” Williams had been under contract for three more years. Fall classes are set to begin next week. UC had some 37,000 students when Williams was named president in 2009 to succeed Nancy Zimpher, who became chancellor of the State University of New York. The 68-year-old Williams was in New York City last week with newly named Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco. Williams headed the search committee that led to the hiring of the CBS Sports executive vice president to lead the conference as its rebuilds after losing three longtime members during realignments. Williams had been president of The City College of New York and law school dean at Ohio State University.

Obama says his ‘red line’ in Syria conflict is WMD
By BRADLEY KLAPPER Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has declared the threat of chemical or biological warfare in Syria a “red line” for the United States, outlining for the first time the point at which his administration could feel forced to intervene militarily in the Arab country’s increasingly messy conflict. Speaking to reporters Monday at the White House, Obama warned about the use or deployment of such weapons of mass destruction and said they risked widening a civil war that already has dragged on for 1 1/2 years and killed some 20,000 people, according to activists. It is widely thought that Syria possesses extensive chemical and biological weapon stockpiles, and it has threatened to use them if the country comes under foreign attack. “That’s an issue that

IT WAS NEWS THEN
Brown tax plan a hard sell
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Jerry Brown has made austerity a hallmark of his administration, telling state workers they must turn in their cellphones, selling off state vehicles, severely reducing employee travel and cutting billions from the general fund. Brown was counting on that record to help him sell his November ballot initiative seeking to boost the state sales and income taxes temporarily to close what was a $15.7 billion budget deficit and avoid further cuts to education. Yet a summer of headlines about state spending scandals and Brown’s own push for some of the nation’s most expensive infrastructure projects has threatened to undermine that carefully crafted message and jeopardize the success of his tax initiative. Opponents are mocking his message that voters can be assured their money will be handled responsibly if the higher taxes are passed. The critics also pounced on a scandal in which state parks employees hid millions of dollars while threatening to close dozens of parks. One group opposing his initiative asked in a radio ad this week: “What else are they keeping from us?” The bad news for Brown also includes a disclosure of pay raises to legislative staffers already making six figures. And at a time when he says the state does not have enough money for schools, he approved the first stage of a $68 billion high-speed rail system and announced plans for a $24 billion tunneling system to move water from north to south. His initiative also faces several competing tax questions, including a well-financed campaign to raise state income taxes for education and dozens of tax increases pushed by local governments. It all adds up to a tough sell for a governor who says he wants to end the state’s cycle of crippling budget deficits.
Mo. lawmaker still defiant, won’t quit Senate race
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Rep. Todd Akin defied the nation’s top Republicans and refused to abandon a Senate bid that has been hobbled by fallout over his comments that women’s bodies can prevent pregnancies in cases of “legitimate rape.” Akin took his message to network TV morning shows and conservative talk radio shows, declaring GOP leaders were overreacting by insisting he abandon his quest to unseat Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, and to social media with appeals for donations on his Twitter feed claiming “liberal elites” are trying to push him out of the race. “I misspoke one word in one sentence on one day, and all of a sudden, overnight, everybody By ROBERT BURNS AP National Security Writer decides, ‘Well, Akin can’t possibly win,”’ he said on a national radio show Tuesday hosted by former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. “Well, I don’t agree with that.” Akin predicted he would bounce back from the political crisis threatening his campaign, including a call from presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney to leave the race, and capture a seat that is pivotal to Republican hopes of regaining control of the Senate. He confirmed that Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan also called to ask him to drop out. But Akin reiterated his decision to stand his ground, saying he refused to be bullied. “It’s not right for party bosses to override” the voters of Missouri, Akin said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” today. He
doesn’t just concern Syria. It concerns our close allies in the region, including Israel. It concerns us,” Obama said, underscoring that the U.S. wouldn’t accept the threat of weapons of mass destruction from Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government, rebels fighting the government, or militant groups aiding either side. “We cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people.” The president noted that he hasn’t ordered any armed U.S. intervention yet, but said: “We have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region, that that’s a red line for us, and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front, or the use of chemical weapons. That would change my calculations significantly.” The U.S. has opposed military involvement in Syria’s war, partly out of fear that
intervention would further militarize the conflict and worsen chances of a political solution. Continued deadlock at the United Nations means there is no clear mandate for the U.S. to help patrol Syrian airspace to stop airstrikes on rebel outposts, as Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and others have urged. And administration officials insist they know too little about much of Syria’s opposition to start providing them weapons. In issuing its threat last month, Syria acknowledged for the first time that it has what is thought to be among the biggest chemical and biological weapons programs in the world. Assad’s military regime is believed to have mustard gas like the type used by Saddam Hussein against Iran and Iraq’s Kurdish minority in the 1980s, as well as nerve agents such as tabun, sarin and VX that can be delivered in missiles, bombs, rockets, artillery shells or other large munitions.
Rising Afghan insider attacks imperil US strategy
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama declared Monday he is sticking to his war strategy of using U.S. troops to advise and mentor Afghan forces, even as a suddenly growing number of Americans are being gunned down by the very Afghans they are training to take on insurgents. In just the past 10 days, Afghan forces have attacked their coalition partners seven times, killing nine Americans. For the year there have been 32 such incidents, killing 40, compared to 21 attacks killing 35 troops in all of 2011. “We are deeply concerned about this, from top to bottom,” Obama told a White House news conference. But he said the best approach, with the fewest number of deaths in the long run, would be to stick to the plan for shifting security responsibilities to the Afghans. “We are transitioning to Afghan security, and for us to train them effectively we are in much closer contact — our troops are in much closer contact with Afghan troops on an ongoing basis,” Obama said. “Part of what we’ve got to do is to make sure that this model works but it doesn’t make our guys more vulnerable.” That vulnerability, however, has been exposed in a strikingly deadly way in recent days. U.S. officials offer two main theories for why Afghan security forces are turning their
said he told Ryan that he was thinking things over and that he wants to “do what’s right,” but that he’s not abandoning his race But his bid faces tall obstacles — chief among them a lack of money and party support. In a potential sign of his strategy, Akin appealed Tuesday to Christian evangelicals, antiabortion activists and antiestablishment Republicans. He said he remains the best messenger to highlight respect for life and liberty that he contends are crumbling under the policies of President Barack Obama. In addition, he solicited donations on his website and twitter account late Tuesday claiming in several messages that it was the “liberal elite,” not establishment Republicans, trying to push him out of the race.
weapons on Western partners: infiltration by the Taliban and a U.S.-Afghan culture clash. Both of those root causes suggest that the problem may get worse as American and other coalition forces shift further into an adviser/mentor role. And that, in turn, raises questions about U.S. ability to train and shape the Afghans into a force that can stand up to the Taliban insurgency after foreign forces end their combat role in 2014. Jacqueline L. Hazelton, a visiting assistant professor at the University of Rochester, who has extensively studied counterinsurgency strategy, sees the attacks stemming from a combination of Afghan resistance and resentment.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
WASHINGTON — Some days Mitt Romney must wonder how he got involved with this crew. Here he’s trying to talk about jobs, jobs, jobs — and his political colleagues keep changing the subject to a topic about which an alarming few seem to know anything at all: women. Specifically, women’s plumbing. Introductions are no longer necessary for the formerly obscure Missouri congressman, Todd Akin, who had hoped to snatch Democrat Claire McCaskill’s Senate seat. For those who didn’t pay their cable bill, Akin recently assured Americans that in cases of “legitimate rape,” women don’t get pregnant because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” To think we’ve overlooked this failsafe method of birth control. More legitimate rape; fewer unwanted children. It has a certain Talibanesque ring to it. All Hades broke loose, one is grateful to note, despite Akin’s lame attempts at penitence. From Romney to Karl Rove, condemnation of Akin’s remarks was stern, with many calling for him to step out of the race. Yet even Akin’s apology and self-correction were mealy-mouthed and lacking in, shall we say, remorse born of clarity. In a hastily constructed ad released Tuesday, Akin tried to organize his thoughts: “Rape is an evil act,” he said, apparently appealing to those who still weren’t sure. “I used the wrong words in the wrong way and for that I apologize. ... I have a compassionate heart for the victims of sexual assault. I pray for them.” Of course words were never the problem. The “thinking” was the problem. Akin’s belief that legitimate rape so scrambles the female’s signals that even biology is thwarted was born of conver-
Akin’s breakin’ heartlation. Even pro-life women will have a
Point of View
sations he says he had with doctors. Akin at least should surrender the names of those doctors so that they can be removed from the practice of medicine. For those still confused, raped women do get pregnant, which is why many who are strongly pro-life nevertheless allow abortion exceptions for rape victims. Even so, the Republican Party platform calls for a “human life” amendment to the Constitution that, strictly applied, likely would prohibit any abortion under any circumstances. Akin’s gift to Democrats wasn’t just a probable campaign killer for him personally. It also reminded critics that Akin once co-sponsored legislation with Paul Ryan re-defining rape as “forcible” versus, what, voluntary? To be fair, there is a difference between morning-after remorse that some call “rape” and rape as most understand it. But for these purposes, as President Obama said, “Rape is rape.” Does a raped woman need bruises to qualify for an abortion? More broadly, Akin’s comments furthered the perception that Republicans are waging a war on women. The gender gap exists for a reason. Whether mandating transvaginal probes prior to abortion under “informed consent” logic or misunderstanding basic biology, Republicans have managed to alienate a fair portion of the female popu-
hard time standing by men who are so willfully ignorant. These episodes not only are embarrassing, but they shift debate from the profound to the ridiculous. One Catholic strategist close to GOP anti-abortion discussions put it this way to me: “Any politician is an idiot if he cannot speak eloquently on the tragedy of abortion, with compassion for women and a sense of recognition also for the life of the child. ... Akin does a disservice to the cause of educating Americans about the humanity of the unborn child. Honestly, though, he is the exception.” Perhaps so, but the cumulative effect of Republican actions aimed at limiting women’s access to abortion rather than seeking remedy through education poses an existential threat to the GOP. You don’t change people’s hearts by insulting their minds. As GOP convention planners consider platforms and pledges, they might also contemplate a seminar for Republican men about how the fairer sex works. Recognizing that attendance could be humiliating, they could put a brown wrapper around it (note to Akin supporters: this is a metaphor) and call it something deceptively innocuous, such as: “Golf and Skinny-Dipping, from the Sea of Galilee to the Gulf of Mexico.” Once attendees are seated, Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore, recently named the first women members of Augusta National Golf Club, could conduct a PowerPoint presentation of the female reproductive system. Given the likelihood of a large audience, the GOP might need a bigger tent than usual. Kathleen Parker’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Country Brunch Skillet and wedding days
BY LOVINA EICHER It is 5:15 a.m. and 18-yearold daughter Elizabeth just left for her job at the factory. My husband Joe left over an hour ago for his job. Elizabeth started at the factory a couple of weeks ago. She works 5 days a week. Her cleaning job didn’t have enough days of work each week for her. At the factory, they make camping trailers. I miss Elizabeth’s good help here at home, but Susan and Verena are done detasseling corn now so they can help. School doors will open in a few weeks. The six youngest will all be in school then. This will be Verena’s last year, Kevin will be in the first grade, Lovina in second, Joseph in fourth, Loretta in sixth and Benjamin in seventh. Time is going by too fast! Yesterday was a long but enjoyable day as were attending the wedding of Albert Jr. and Louanna. It is a little bit harder to get started today after such a long day yesterday. I was a cook at the wedding. I was happy that I managed to get my new dress sewn before the wedding. We had to wear a hunter green colored dress. Elizabeth and her friend Timothy were table-waiters. She had to wear a dark sage colored dress. Makes it so much easier for me since she has learned to cut out and sew her own dress, cape and apron. She worked on it afternoons after work. We hired a driver to go the 22 miles to Albert’s for the wedding while Timothy and Elizabeth drove it with the horse and buggy. It took them a little over two hours to get there but they made it back home in 1 hour and 45 minutes. Seems the horse always knows when it is coming back home and wants to travel faster. The cooks are all assigned different jobs and my job was to help make gravy. My sisters Liz and Emma were also assigned to this job. We made many gallons and gallons of gravy for the day. Then we also had to help the table waiters at “table 9” wash their dishes after each setting. The couple had 24 table waiters to wait on the 12 tables. A boy and a girl were assigned to each table. 300 people could be served at one time. A delicious meal was served for both meals, the noon dinner and evening supper. On the menu was grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, mixed vegetables, salad, homemade bread, butter and grape jelly, grape jello pudding, mixed fruit, and pecan, peanut butter, and apple pie. For the evening meal they had baked chicken instead of grilled, ice cream and strawberries instead of mixed fruit, with most of the rest the same menu as during the day. It really rained around noon but it quit and was cloudy. Made the weather cool for us cooks who work in the wedding wagon. With seven stoves going in there it seemed pleasant with the nice breeze the rain brought. Supper was at 5:30 for the adults and 7 p.m. for the youth. After the meal the youth sang songs the couple chose to sing. While singing, the wedding cake was cut and passed around. Our ride to go home came at 8:30. Certain couples were assigned to get the wedding

Lady Wildcats open with comefrom-behind win over Cougars
Roughriders run roughshod over Lady Jays DELPHOS — St. John’s girls soccer coach John Munoz wants to find out quickly what his team — with a number of first-year players — has for 2012. He found out in a hurry against perennial power St. Marys Memorial in the Lady Blue Jays season-opener Tuesday night at the Annex, getting shut out 9-0. “We start out with there very tough opponents this season; I want that kind of challenge for my girls. We need to find out what areas we have to address and work on,” Munoz explained. “St. Marys is the type of team and program that we want to get to; by playing them, we can show the girls how to do things right. We can get it on film and then play it back so they can see how it’s done.” The Lady Roughriders won the shots on-goal 35-6, with the Jays combo of goalkeepers Samantha Wehri and Rylee Hamilton gathering in 22 total saves, “It’s a good thing for us to see how far we’ve come with so many new faces on our team. We have made a lot of progress,” Munoz added. “The girls are holding their own and the skills are coming slowly but surely. We are fine-tuning the positions and they are learning their roles within those positions.” The Jays visit Wapakoneta 6 p.m. (JV first) Thursday. ---Pirates capture NWC golf quad BLUFFTON — With Rich Streicher leading the way with a medalist-winning 42, the Bluffton boys golf team defeated Jefferson, Ada and Lincolnview 178192-203-217 in a Northwest Conference quad match Tuesday at Bluffton Golf Club.

It’s what’s up front that counts for Buckeyes’ D
By RUSTY MILLER The Associated Press COLUMBUS — All anybody around Ohio State wants to talk about is the spread offense being molded by new coach Urban Meyer. Tucked away in the corner of the Woody Hayes practice field in the August heat is the real backbone of the 18thranked Buckeyes. John Simon, Johnathan Hankins, Garrett Goebel, Adam Bellamy and Nathan Williams aren’t household names — even in households with scarlet-andgray fan caves. Yet it is the defensive front that determines how rapidly the Buckeyes can erase an awful 2011 and start looking to the future. No one around the program wavers on the strength of the team. “It’s going to be up front. We know that. It’s got to be,” said Luke Fickell, interim coach of last year’s 6-7 team and returning as the defensive co-coordinator this time around. “Those guys have got some experience and we’ve got a little bit of depth there.” Funny, but the offense is helping the defensive line get as much for his potential (11 tackles for loss last year) as his 317 pounds. Williams, who is penciled in as co-starter with Bellamy at the other end, barely played last season and didn’t participate in spring drills because of microfracture surgery on his knee. He appears to be making progress and could be ready early in the season. Bellamy and Hankins are both juniors with 26 games already under their sizable belts. The backups include big sophomore Michael Bennett and the intriguing Chris Carter, a 6-4, 358-pounder who was originally recruited as an offensive lineman but has been switched to the other side. He’s still learning the position but has shown flashes of being a force. Simon is the clear-cut leader of the group, a confident and yet accommodating quarterback-terrorizer who led the Buckeyes a year ago with seven sacks and 16 tackles for negative yardage. He and Goebel were both among the top vote-getters for captain earlier this week. No wonder Meyer has been
FORT JENNINGS — The Van Wert varsity girls soccer team is looking to win the first match of its 3-year existence as the Lady Cougars begin 2012. It looked like they might get it done Tuesday night versus Jefferson but the Lady Wildcats scored twice in the last 14:12 to nip that hope in the bud in a 2-1 victory in the season opener for both squads at Keith Hamel Memorial Field in Fort Jennings. “These girls have put in a lot of time and effort from the start of camp to now. We’ve done a lot of conditioning and it paid off today,” firstyear Jefferson coach Josiah Stober began. “We just made some minor changes at the half — we saw some things we felt we could do and areas we could attack. We also got more aggressive.” The Cougars led 1-0 after scoring at the 27:02 mark of the first half and then held on the rest of the half. The Lady Wildcats took command of the second half but could not dent the scoreboard. They had a couple of chances. At 26:00, junior Brooke Hesseling’s 30-yarder was stopped by Cougar junior keeper Rachel Gordon (7 saves vs. 10 shots on-goal, 13 overall). Just 40 ticks later, Gordon stymied a 15-yarder from sophomore Kylee Haehn. At the 23-minute mark, the visitors had a shot to go up 2-0 as Jefferson senior keeper Paige Miller (3 saves vs. 7 shots on-goal, 13 overall) fell down outside of the goal mouth but the Cougars could not get a shot off. At 21:12, the Cougars had another good chance as
junior Amanda Clay lofted a 16-yarder from the right wing but it hit off the crossbar to the left side and out of bounds. The next real opening for the Wildcats — at 14:12 — hit its target. On an inside pass from the right side from sophomore Elisabeth Miller, Haehn got control in front of the goal and went to the left side from 10 yards for a 1-1 tie. Haehn got another shot off at 13:22 but her shot from in front was wide left. At 11:12, senior Rachel Miller’s 16-yarder was denied by Gordon. Van Wert tried to go in front at 9:10 but junior Hannah Hulbert’s free kick from 28 yards just missed connecting with Clay. The Wildcats took advantage of a seemingly tiring Cougar squad at 7:22. Rachel Miller got control on the left side and made a nice run down the sideline. Near the end line, she fired a low 12-yarder that slipped by Gordon and into the net for a 2-1 lead. The last great chance for either unit came at 1:02 when Hulbert got a good look from 18 yards in front but missed wide right. “It’s frustrating. I give Delphos the credit the second half; they just played that much harder,” Cougar coach Rich Nouza noted. “They scored both of their goals off of defensive breakdowns; we weren’t marking people in the back like we needed to and it was costly.” The Red and White had the first great chance of the season-opener at 38:20 of the first half as Haehn got a try from the right wing but her 15-yarder sailed just wide left. The Cougars had two

Haehn scored the tying goal and senior Rachel Miller the match-winner in a season-opening 2-1 girls soccer victory. chances: at 37:12 and 31:12; but both times, Hulbert was denied by the keeper and then went over the top from 19 yards. Van Wert drew first blood at 27:02. Clay lofted a cross pass deep on the right side that went over top of the keeper and Hulbert had a running start to put the ball in the back of the net from point-blank range for a 1-nil advantage. Each team had its chances but the best opportunities the rest of the half came at 11:10, when Haehn’s 19-yarder was deflected by Gordon; at 10:04, when Clay’s 20-yarder from the right side hit the near post; and at 6:32, when Haehn’s corner kick from the left side was knocked out of bounds by the Cougar keeper.

“We have put in a lot of time teaching the girls the fundamentals of soccer and showed today. We improved from the start of the match to the end,” Stober added. “We have improved a lot over the summer because the girls have really worked hard; today was the best that I’ve seen them play. I have no doubt they will keep working hard and we will get even better as we go.” Jefferson visits Ottoville 6 p.m. Thursday. “We played a great first half. I take that away from this match,” Nouza added. “I also take the fact that we have improved a lot. We aren’t where I’d like us to be but we are farther along toward that goal.” Van Wert visits Shawnee 7 p.m. Tuesday.

better. Every day in August, the front wall has had to not only shut down but also keep up with Meyer’s hurry-up offense. That has served to get the unit ready for many of the spread attacks already in place in the Big Ten but has also helped to get those five — who average 6-4 and 281 pounds — in extraordinary condition. “Even our big guys have to run around constantly, not getting breaks, not subbing in,” said Simon, the “Leo” end. “So we’re definitely going to be one of the best conditioned defensive lines, best conditioned defenses, in the country. That’ll help us.” They are far from cookiecutter copies of each other. The soft-spoken Goebel fills the hole at nose tackle alongside the talkative and popular Hankins, dubbed “Big Hank”
effusive in his praise of Simon and the rest of the linemen. “(No.) 54 is as good a player as there is in college football,” the first-year Buckeyes coach said of Simon. What’s more, those veterans are being pushed by an all-star cast of freshmen that includes blue-chippers Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington. “We’ve got a lot of depth, a lot of good freshmen who have all the physical skills and are playing well right now,” Goebel said. “They’ve just got to learn the defense a little more, take that next step. It should be a good year.” How much pressure the big guys up front apply can make a thin group of linebackers and a solid secondary look worlds better. “The fight in the trenches is where defense starts,” said safety C.J. Barnett. “With Johnny Simon and Big Hank in there, it makes the job easier for everybody else.” The line can also take a lot of heat off Meyer’s new offense. “We aim to be the best in the country,” Bennett said. “I think every D-line says that but we honestly can reach that.”

------LadyCats shut out Black Knights in girls soccer VAN BUREN — Kalida girls soccer coach Dave Kehres figures he has a pretty solid team entering 2012. The LadyCats showed just why Tuesday night with a 3-0 whitewash of homestanding Van Buren in their seasonopener. Kalida dominated the shots on-goal 12-1, with Sarah Verhoff stopping the only shot by the Lady Black Knights (1-1-0) and Rachel Wymer nabbing seven saves against the visitors. Summer Holtkamp, Jackie Gardner and Brittany Kahle each scored for the LadyCats and Gardner had an assist. Kalida hosts Bath 7 p.m. Thursday. ----Kalida, Wapak tie in boys soccer action KALIDA — Kalida’s boys soccer unit under mentor Mark Czubik has been known to play a rugged schedule. A relatively inexperienced Wildcat squad hosted Wapakoneta Tuesday night under the lights of Kalida Soccer Stadium and battled to a 1-1 draw. Ian Richey (Kalida) and Luke Williams (Wapak) scored the goals. Kalida (which opened with a tie Saturday) outshot Wapak 10-5, with Drew Hovest saving four shots for the hosts and Matt Ewing nine for the Redskins (0-0-1). Kalida entertains Van Buren 1 p.m. Saturday. (See ROUNDUP page 7)

The Cougars escaped with a 4-1 victory but all four of those wins went three sets. Van Wert is now 1-2; LCC is 4-1. The first match to finish was at first singles where Van Wert senior Katie Etter won 6-3, 2-6, 6-1 over junior Paige Collins. Etter struggled mightily in the second set but came on strong in the third, winning the last five games to put the Cougs up 1-0. At second singles, Cougar senior Paige Dunlap and T-Bird sophomore Kasey Bradshaw engaged in a 2 1/2-hour battle of attrition, with neither one hitting with power nor frequently venturing to the net. Dunlap, however, did show signs of aggressiveness in the third
set, hitting several winners to pull out a 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 win. Van Wert now needed one more win to capture the match and senior Rachel Chen’s comeback from a 2-6, 2-5 deficit got it for the Cougars. Chen overcame the best server on the courts, LCC sophomore Emily Janowski, to pull out an unlikely 2-6, 7-5, 6-3 victory, winning five games in a row in the second set. That match lasted close to three hours and featured some of the most solid ballstriking of the day. Chen’s win assured Van Wert of its first win of the season and took some of the pressure off of the Cougar doubles teams, who were both well into their first sets by the time Chen finished. The T-Birds’ first doubles team of juniors Allison Hullinger and Liz Kidd squeaked out an 8-6 tiebreaker in the first set, then won the second set 6-3 over Van Wert’s pairing of senior Tracy Nguyen and junior Claire Butler. The Cougs’ second doubles team of junior Sydney Dull and freshman Ali Moreland lost a 5-2 lead in the first set to LCC’s only seniors, Claire Ucat and Jennifer Huffman, and ended up losing the tie-breaker 7-3. However, Dull and Moreland rebounded from that disappointment to claw their way to a 6-4 win in the second set. Because of the late hour, the coaches decided to settle that one with a 1-game tie-breaker, won by the Van Wert pair 7-3. “All of them played really hard,” said Van Wert coach Mitch Price of his varsity

Third singles: Rachel Chen (VW) over Emily Janowski (LCC) 2-6, 7-5, 6-3. First doubles: Allison Hullinger/Liz Kidd (LCC) over Claire Butler/Tracy Nguyen 7-6 (8-6), 6-3.

a mother of a 17-year-old son with an autism spectrum disorder, I have spent years researching and networking, hoping to learn whatever I can to help him achieve success in a world that is less than accepting of people with neurological differences. What I’ve learned is that ASDs are complex, and there is no “one size fits all’” approach to transitioning into young adulthood. I would like to suggest two resources that may help: College Autism Spectrum (collegeautismspectrum.com/students.html) is an organization of professionals that provides support and training for students with autism spectrum disorders and their families. The other is Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid (shutupabout. com). This website is an offshoot of a book written by two sisters about their daughters, one with Asperger syndrome and the other with bipolar disorder. They also have a Facebook page that provides an exchange of ideas and information, as well as support. I also would like to say to “Aspie” congratulations on your college acceptance, and best wishes for success in all of your future endeavors. -- ASD Mom in Massachusetts Dear Massachusetts: Thank you for your excellent resources. We hope they will be of assistance to all of our readers whose children need some extra help.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2012 When you take on responsibilities that others avoid, your chances for advancement become much greater. Even if these chores should test your mettle, you’ll still do a good job. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your powers of observation are especially sharp, which is well and good, provided you don’t start nitpicking to others about things you think they’re doing incorrectly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Possibilities for gain look better than usual for you. In fact, when it comes to a group involvement, you will likely be the one who guides things to a financially successful conclusion. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Taking pride in what you do is an admirable thing. However, being proud purely for vanity’s sake is something else again. Be able to distinguish between the two. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- To operate more effectively, you should do your best not to call attention to yourself or your activities. If you allow outside influences to get involved, you’ll get thrown off course. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Although you might think that you’d enjoy a little solitude, you’d be much happier engaging in a group activity. Being a loner isn’t apt to pay off, spiritually or financially. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -An important objective can be achieved if you give it your full dedication. If you start questioning your convictions, however, things are likely to grind to a halt. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- This is an excellent day to take on projects that require a creative touch and a dash of imagination. Light up the room if you’ve got a bright idea. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Being inflexible almost always works against you, especially if you happen to be involved in a joint endeavor. Be as intellectually mobile as possible. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- When it comes to matters where you allow your feelings to color your judgment, you’ll suffer. Do your best to keep emotions out of your decisionmaking and to view things logically. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -An immense feeling of gratification is likely to come from being of service to another. Don’t be reluctant to put yourself out for someone. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Your organizational abilities are apt to be a shade or two sharper than usual, so don’t hesitate to use them to your advantage. Start with tackling a big project or two. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It will be up to you to guide an important endeavor to a successful conclusion. Take things one step at a time, and make sure you don’t leave anything up to chance.

Americans tuning out war in Afghanistan
By DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press KABUL, Afghanistan — It was once President Barack Obama’s “war of necessity.” Now, it’s America’s forgotten war. The Afghan conflict generates barely a whisper on the U.S. presidential campaign trail. It’s not a hot topic at the office water cooler or in the halls of Congress — even though more than 80,000 American troops are still fighting here and dying at a rate of one a day. Americans show more interest in the economy and taxes than the latest suicide bombings in a different, distant land. They’re more tuned in to the political ad war playing out on television than the deadly fight still raging against the Taliban. Earlier this month, protesters at the Iowa State Fair chanted “Stop the war!” They were referring to one purportedly being waged against the middle class. By the time voters go to the polls Nov. 6 to choose between Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, the war will be in its 12th year. For most Americans, that’s long enough. Public opinion remains largely negative toward the war, with 66 percent opposed to it and just 27 percent in favor in a May AP-GfK poll. More recently, a Quinnipiac University poll found that 60 percent of registered voters felt the U.S. should no longer be involved in Afghanistan. Just 31 percent said the U.S. is doing the right thing by fighting there now. Not since the Korean War of the early 1950s — a much shorter but more intense fight — has an armed conflict involving America’s sons and daughters captured so little public attention. “We’re bored with it,” said Matthew Farwell, who served in the U.S. Army for five years including 16 months in eastern Afghanistan, where he sometimes received letters from grade school students addressed to the brave Marines in Iraq — the wrong war. “We all laugh about how no one really cares,” he said. “All the ‘support the troops’ stuff is bumper sticker deep.” Farwell, 29, who is now studying at the University of Virginia, said the war is rarely a topic of conversation on campus — and he isn’t surprised that it’s not discussed much on the campaign trail. “No one understands how to extricate ourselves from the mess we have made there,” he said. “So from a purely political point of view, I wouldn’t be talking about it if I were Barack Obama or Mitt Romney either.” Ignoring the Afghan war, though, doesn’t make it go away. More than 1,950 Americans have died in Afghanistan and thousands more have been wounded since President George W. Bush launched attacks on Oct. 7, 2001 to rout alQaida after it used Afghanistan to train recruits and plot the Sept. 11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans. The war drags on even though al-Qaida has been largely driven out of Afghanistan and its charismatic leader Osama bin Laden is dead — slain in a U.S. raid on his Pakistani hideout last year. Strangely, Afghanistan never seemed to grab the same degree of public and media attention as the war in Iraq, which Obama opposed as a “war of choice.” Unlike Iraq, victory in Afghanistan seemed to come quickly. Kabul fell within weeks of the U.S. invasion in October 2001. The hardline Taliban regime was toppled with few U.S. casualties. But the Bush administration’s shift toward war with Iraq left the Western powers without enough resources on the ground, so by 2006 the Taliban had regrouped into a serious military threat. Candidate Obama promised to refocus America’s resources on Afghanistan. But by the time President Obama sent 33,000 more troops to Afghanistan in December 2009, years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan had drained Western resources and sapped resolve to build a viable Afghan state. And over time, his administration has grown weary of trying to tackle Afghanistan’s seemingly intractable problems of poverty and corruption. The American people have grown weary too. While most Americans are sympathetic to the plight of the Afghan people, they have become deeply skeptical of President Hamid Karzai’s willingness to tackle corruption and political patronage and the coalition’s chances of “budging a medieval society” into the modern world, says Ann Marlowe, a visiting fellow

Smith also spoke on the village’s recent bicentennial celebration. “I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the way things went,” he began. “Everyone pulled together and we had more than enough help. On Thursday and Friday we had so many people wanting to contribute, everything went very smoothly.

Court: Texas can cut off Planned Parenthood funds
By WILL WEISSERT Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas — Texas officials are vowing to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood after a federal court sided with the state in a challenge over a new law that bans clinics affiliated with abortion providers from getting money through a health program for low-income women. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans late Tuesday reversed a federal judge’s temporary injunction that was allowing the funding to continue pending an October trial on Planned Parenthood’s challenge to the law. State officials are seeking to halt money to Planned Parenthood clinics that provide family planning and health services as part of the state’s Women’s Health Program because the Republican-led Texas Legislature passed a law banning funds to organizations linked to abortion providers. Planned Parenthood provides services like cancer screenings — but not abortions — to about half of the 130,000 low-income Texas women enrolled in the program, which is designed to provide services to women who might not otherwise qualify for Medicaid. The appeals court’s decision means Texas is now free to impose the ban. “We appreciate the court’s ruling and will move to enforce state law banning abortion providers and affiliates from the Women’s Health Program as quickly as possible,” Stephanie Goodman, a spokeswoman for the state Health and Human Services Commission, said in a statement. The ruling is the latest in the ongoing fight that has pitted Texas against the federal government. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services says that the new state rule violates federal law. Federal funds paid for 90 percent, or about $35 million, of the $40 million Women’s Health Program until the new rule went into effect. Federal officials are now phasing out support for the program. Gov. Rick Perry has promised that Texas will make up for the loss of federal funds to keep the program going without Planned Parenthood’s involvement.

MANTON, Calif. — Dozens of buildings, many of them likely homes, have been destroyed in recent days a fire burning outside the Northern California community of Manton, fire officials said Tuesday night. Fire crews assessing the rural area determined Tuesday that 50 buildings had been destroyed, state fire spokesman Daniel Berlant said. The count included buildings burned since the fire began, but officials did not say when the structures were destroyed. Officials didn’t have an accurate count yet of how many of the structures were homes, but Berlant noted the buildings were spread across a vast rural area of mostly residential homes.

Smith in turn thanked council, Maintenance Supervisor Ted Wrasman, Paul Kramer, the three high school students, Dylan Edridge, Jake McElroy and Chad Recker, who helped with storm debris cleanup and celebration preparations; the committee; and all the village organizations for their help to make the event a success. “It took the entire village to make this happen and each and every one of us should be proud of what we accomplished,” he added.
50 buildings destroyed in Northern Calif. fire
By HAVEN DALEY and TERRY COLLINS Associated Press homes. Nearly 1,900 firefighters were battling the fire in rugged, densely forested terrain as it threatened 3,500 homes in the remote towns of Shingletown, Manton and Viola, about 170 miles north of Sacramento. As a the wildfire raged near Lynn Rodgers’ home of less than a year, the evacuated resident said Tuesday she remained optimistic — in spite of her growing frustration and fear. “Yeah, but what can you do? Everything is in God’s hands — and the firefighters,” said Rodgers, who lives in Shingletown. Like Rodgers, many other evacuees were anxious to hear the latest information from officials. Dozens of people, as well as about a dozen dogs, were waiting at the Redding gym. “The evacuation part? It’s hard because I don’t know what’s happening to the house up there,” said Jimmy Hall, a Shingletown resident whose family spent another night sleeping on cots. “It’s my dad’s house... There’s a lot of things in there,” Hall added. “I’ve heard that my friend is still up there protecting his house. It’s just hard. Look at how we’re sleeping.” Eric Kiltz, an emergency services coordinator for the American Red Cross, said “there’s more frustration than anxiety, and people, for the most part are grateful they have a safe and secure place to stay, even though their home may be lost.” The fast-moving fire is one of many burning across the West, where dry lightning has sparked up grass, brush and timber, bringing an early start to the fire season. Gov. Jerry Brown announced Tuesday that National Guard troops will be assisting with the firefighting efforts. The news comes a day after the Federal Emergency Management Agency said it is offering federal funds to help fight the blaze. The fire forced the closure of Highway 44 and other
at the Hudson Institute, a policy research organization in Washington. “With millions of veterans home and talking with their families and friends ... some knowledge of just how hard this is has percolated down,” said Marlowe, who has traveled to Afghanistan many times. It has also been hard to show progress on the battlefield. World War II had its Normandy, Vietnam its Tet Offensive and Iraq its Battle of Fallujah. Afghanistan is a grinding slough in villages and remote valleys where success is measured in increments. The Afghan war transformed into a series of small, often vicious and intense fights scattered across a country almost as large as Texas. In July, 40 U.S. service members died in Afghanistan in the deadliest month for American troops so far this year. At least 31 have been killed this month — seven when a helicopter crashed during a firefight with insurgents in what was one of the deadliest air disasters of the war. Ten others were gunned down in attacks from members of the Afghan security forces — either disgruntled turncoats or Taliban infiltrators. Many argue that bin Laden’s death justifies a quick U.S. exit from Afghanistan. Others say it’s important to stay longer to shore up the Afghan security forces and help build the government so that it can stand on its own. An unstable Afghanistan could again offer sanctuary to militants like al-Qaida who want to harm American and its allies, they say.
Investigators looking into Maryland train derailment
ec,” read another. Accompanying photos showed their view from the bridge and their bare feet, one with painted blue toenails, dangling over the edge. “Levitating,” read the tweet. The women were sitting on the edge of the bridge with their backs to the tracks as the train passed a few feet behind them, Howard County police said, and their bodies were found buried under coal dumped from the train cars. Authorities said they needed to do autopsies before their cause of death could be determined. The victims were identified as Elizabeth Conway Nass, a student at James Madison University in central Virginia and Rose Louese Mayr, a nursing student at the University of Delaware. The railroad is easily accessed from the picturesque downtown of Ellicott City, which is about 15 miles west of Baltimore, and generations of young people have played and partied along the tracks. The railroad was completed in 1830 and crosses over Main Street in the city’s historic district, following the route of the nation’s first commercial railroad, according to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum. “We grew up running on those tracks,” said Ellicott City native Bridgette Hammond, 25. “It’s actually really beautiful up there.” Nass and Mayr were graduates of Mt. Hebron High School in Ellicott City, where they were on the dance team, and planned to finish college in 2014, according to friends and their Facebook pages. One of Nass’ sorority sisters, Donya Mossadeghi, called her “a joy to talk to” and someone who “would never say a bad thing about anybody.” Nass made the dean’s list in the fall of 2010 and 2011, according to a university spokesman, and another friend said she was studying special education. Tori Mace, of Ellicott City, knew Mayr through mutual friends. “She was really fun, really friendly,” Mace said. A person who answered the telephone at Nass’ home declined to comment, as did a family member who answered at a number
roads, and prompted the declaration of an emergency in Shasta County. Elsewhere in California, a massive wildfire in Plumas National Forest continued to expand, helped by gusty winds. The blaze, about 120 miles north of Sacramento, has consumed nearly 98 square miles since it started at the end of July and threatens about 900 homes. In Mendocino County, the sheriff’s office issued a mandatory evacuation for residents in Covelo due to a wildfire that has burned more than 15 square miles of thick timber and rugged terrain. One outbuilding has been destroyed and 45 homes were threatened by the blaze, officials said. The fire was sparked by lightning Saturday in a remote area, making it difficult for fire crews to access. In Washington state, the National Weather Service warned about extreme fire danger in the eastern part of the state as forecasts called for thunderstorms with light-

The pictures and tweets from Mayr were no longer publicly available, but friends confirmed they were hers and police said they were aware of the posts and looking into them. Benjamin Noppenberger was getting ready for bed late Monday when he and his wife heard what sounded like gunshots. They waited about 10 minutes before going outside. “We could see all the cars that fell over. I just saw catastrophe,” he said. Jim Southworth, investigator in charge for the National Transportation Safety Board, declined to speculate on a possible cause. He said the brakes were applied automatically when an air line used to pressurize the braking system was disconnected. He did not say what role, if any, the brakes may have played in the derailment. “This will be a very wideranged investigation,” he said, adding later that investigators “will look into the maintenance of the track, the maintenance of the equipment, the maintenance of the locomotive — everything you can think of.”
Administration’s disregard for our state law and unilateral decision to defund this program,” he said. Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said the case “has never been about Planned Parenthood — it’s about the women who rely on Planned Parenthood for cancer screenings, birth control and wellwoman exams.” “It is shocking that politics would get in the way of women receiving access to basic health care,” Richards said in a statement. The case began when Planned Parenthood sued, saying the new Texas law violated its rights to free speech. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott countered by arguing that lawmakers may decide which organizations receive state funds.
