New pest
Times Bulletin News Writer
Department of Agricultures
Animal and Plant Health
Inspection Service (APHIS) is
asking the public to keep their
eyes open for the Asian long-
horned beetle (ALB). These
beetles are most active during
the summer and early fall;
August in particular is the
time of peak emergence for
the devastating and invasive
pest. This is a critical time for
the APHIS to build the pub-
lics awareness of the ALB.
The ALB can be found on
trees, branches, walls, outdoor
furniture, cars, sidewalks and
caught in pool filters. These
pests have unique characteris-
tics and are easy to spot. The
bug has long antennae banded
in black and white that are
longer than the insects one
to one-and-a-half inch body.
This body is a shiny, jet black
color with random white spots
throughout. This insect has six
legs which may appear bluish
in color.
The first ALB was dis-
covered in the United States
in 1996 and is supposed to
have arrived in wood pack-
ing material from Asia. Since
then, the beetle has spread
to Illinois, New Jersey, New
York, Massachusetts, and
Ohio. Currently, Van Wert
County Agricultural Extension
Educator Curtis Young notes
that no infestations of this
beetle have been reported in
Van Wert County. The only
known outbreak in Ohio at this
time is in Clermont County.
At this point, the only
action to be taken if an infesta-
tion of these beetles is noticed
is to contact the authorities
immediately, said Young.
There is nothing that a resi-
dent can do on their own.
Young also noted that the
ALB is of great concern
not only to the state of Ohio
but to the United States as it
can live in many more places
list than other such pests.
The ALB is particularly
fond of the maple tree, both
hard and soft wood, but also
frequents a multitude of other
species including willow, elm,
horse-chestnut and birch.
There are several ways to
search for signs of infesta-
tion which include dime-sized
or larger, perfectly round exit
holes in a tree, oval depres-
sions on the bark where their
eggs have been laid, sawdust-

FDA names farm tied to
salmonella in melons
(AP) The Food and Drug
Administration has identified
a southern Indiana farm that
produces cantaloupes linked
to a deadly salmonella out-
break and says the operation
has recalled its melons.
The Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
reports that of 178 people
infected in 21 states, two have
died and 62 have been hospi-
talized. Chamberlain Farms
of Owensville could be one
source of contaminated fruit
in the multistate outbreak,
the FDA said in a statement
released late Wednesday.
Attorney John Broadhead
said Chamberlain Farms vol-
untarily withdrew its canta-
loupes last week and that all its
retail and wholesale purchasers
complied with the recall.
The farm about 20 miles
north of Evansville sold can-
taloupes to grocery stores in
four southwestern Indiana
counties and one in southeast-
ern Illinois, Broadhead said in
a statement. The fruit was also
sold to wholesale purchasers
in St. Louis; Owensboro, Ky.;
Peru, Ill., and Durant, Iowa.
Neither the FDA nor the
farm gave any information
about what might have caused
the contamination. Phone
messages seeking additional
details werent immediately
returned Thursday morning.
The FDA blamed pools of
dirty water on the floor and
old, hard-to-clean equipment
at a Colorado cantaloupe farm
for a listeria outbreak that
killed 30 people last year.
Salmonellosis causes diar-
rhea, fever and cramps and
can be fatal.
Indiana health officials
issued an advisory Friday
telling residents to discard
any cantaloupes grown in
southwestern Indiana that
they bought on or after July
7. The FDA also has advised
consumers to throw out any
cantaloupe that may have
come from that area.
Indiana ranked fourth in
the nation in cantaloupe pro-
duction last year.
New AIDS-like disease
in Asians, not contagious
The Associated Press
Researchers have identified
a mysterious new disease that
has left scores of people in
Asia and some in the United
States with AIDS-like symp-
toms even though they are not
infected with HIV.
The patients immune sys-
tems become damaged, leaving
them unable to fend off germs
as healthy people do. What
triggers this isnt known, but
the disease does not seem to be
This is another kind of
acquired immune deficiency
that is not inherited and occurs
in adults, but doesnt spread
the way AIDS does through a
virus, said Dr. Sarah Browne, a
scientist at the National Institute
of Allergy and Infectious
She helped lead the study
with researchers in Thailand
and Taiwan where most of
the cases have been found
since 2004. Their report is in
todays New England Journal
of Medicine.
This is absolutely fascinat-
ing. Ive seen probably at least
three patients in the last 10
years or so who might have
had this, said Dr. Dennis Maki,
an infectious disease specialist
at the University of Wisconsin
in Madison.
Its still possible that an
infection of some sort could
trigger the disease, even though
the disease itself doesnt seem
to spread person-to-person, he
The disease develops
around age 50 on average but
does not run in families, which
makes it unlikely that a single
gene is responsible, Browne
said. Some patients have died
of overwhelming infections,
including some Asians now
living in the U.S., although
Browne could not estimate
how many.
Kim Nguyen, 62, a seam-
stress from Vietnam who has
lived in Tennessee since 1975,
was gravely ill when she sought
help for a persistent fever,
infections throughout her bones
and other bizarre symptoms in
2009. She had been sick off
and on for several years and
had visited Vietnam in 1995
and again in early 2009.
She was wasting away
from this systemic infection
that at first seemed like tuber-
culosis but wasnt, said Dr.
Carlton Hays Jr., a family phy-
sician at the Jackson Clinic in
Jackson, Tenn. Shes a small
woman to begin with, but when
I first saw her, her weight was
91 pounds, and she lost down
to 69 pounds.
Nguyen (pronounced
when) was referred to spe-
cialists at the National Institutes
of Health who had been track-
ing similar cases. She spent
nearly a year at an NIH hos-
pital in Bethesda, Md., and is
there now for monitoring and
further treatment.
I feel great now, she said
Wednesday. But when she was
sick, I felt dizzy, headaches,
almost fell down, she said. I
could not eat anything.
AIDS is a specific disease,
and it stands for acquired
immune deficiency syndrome.
That means the immune sys-
tem becomes impaired during
someones lifetime, rather than
from inherited gene defects
like the bubble babies who
are born unable to fight off
The virus that causes AIDS
HIV destroys T-cells,
key soldiers of the immune
system that fight germs. The
new disease doesnt affect
those cells, but causes a differ-
ent kind of damage. Brownes
study of more than 200 people
in Taiwan and Thailand found
that most of those with the
disease make substances called
autoantibodies that block inter-
feron-gamma, a chemical sig-
nal that helps the body clear
Blocking that signal leaves
people like those with AIDS
vulnerable to viruses, fun-
gal infections and parasites,
but especially micobacte-
ria, a group of germs simi-
lar to tuberculosis that can
cause severe lung damage.
Researchers are calling this
new disease an adult-onset
immunodeficiency syndrome
because it develops later in
life and they dont know why
or how.

Deep in your neck a pair of blood ves-

the openings in your neck bones. These
vessels supply 30% of your brains blood
supply. Any twisting or misalignment of
your neck bones will kink those arteries

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico and the U.S.
Virgin Islands braced for tor-
rential rains today as Tropical
Storm Isaac churned waves as
high as 10 feet (3 meters) in
the Caribbean and threatened
to become a hurricane that
could take a shot at Florida
just as Republicans gather for
their national convention.
Some flooding was report-
ed in eastern and southern
regions of Puerto Rico as the
storm approached.
U.S. forecasters said Isaac
will likely turn into a Category
1 hurricane by Friday as it
nears the Dominican Republic
and Haiti. It was expected to
weaken a little while head-
ing over their island and
Cuba, then possibly move on
toward Florida as a hurricane
by Monday.
Isaac was centered 225
miles (360) kilometers south-
southeast of Puerto Rico today
morning, with maximum sus-
tained winds of 40 mph (65
kph). It was moving west at
13 mph (21 kph) according to
the U.S. National Hurricane
The system has slowed
down, and as a result, the
island will see more rain, said
Ernesto Morales, forecaster
with the National Weather
Service in San Juan, Puerto
This is not the moment
to become complacent, he
The U.S. territory has
opened 428 shelters, and 50
people have taken refuge,
said Gov. Luis Fortuno. Some
4,000 people were without
power and more than 3,000
without water.
Schools and government
offices remained closed
today, but the governor said
it was safe for people to go
to work if they needed to.
However, he warned every-
one to stay away from beach-
es and swollen rivers.
Its not the day to partici-
pate in recreational activities
in these areas, Fortuno said.
While Isaac itself has
caused on reported injuries or
deaths, police in Puerto Rico
say a 75-year-old woman
died near the capital of San
Juan on Wednesday when
she fell off a second-floor
balcony while filling a drum
with water in preparation for
the storm.
Puerto Ricos main inter-
national airport remained
open, but Cape Air and
American Eagle cancelled all
their flights today, Fortuno
said. Ferry service to the
tourist islands of Vieques and
Culebra also was temporarily
In Vieques, one of the own-
ers of Bananas Guesthouse
said he had received a call
from his brother in Florida,
who suggested he tell report-
ers there are mudslides and
cows flying through the air.
But in fact, theres a breeze
going by, Glenn Curry said.
Weve had a little bit of rain.
Nothing much has happened
so far...Overnight it didnt
even blow enough to wake
me up.
In the U.S. Virgin Islands
town of Christiansted, streets
lined with historic buildings
of Danish architecture, were
largely deserted. All but a
small handful of business-
es and government offices
were closed. Hurricane shut-
ters covered the entrances to
most buildings and sandbags
were stacked in anticipation
of potential floods and storm
Two shelters were open on
the island, and 10 people were
housed overnight, according
to Elton Lewis, director of
the Virgin Islands Territorial
Emergency Management
The storm already forced
military authorities at the
U.S. base in Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba, to cancel pre-
trial hearings for five prison-
ers charged in the Sept. 11
attacks. They also planned to
evacuate about 200 people,
including legal teams and rel-
atives of Sept. 11 victims.
Isaac also posed a threat
to next weeks Republican
National Convention in
Tampa, where officials said
they were ready to take
emergency measures even as
70,000 delegates, journalists
and protesters descend on the
Public safety will always
trump politics, Tampa
Mayor Bob Buckhorn said.
And so my job, and our job,
if we move into that mode, is
to make sure we get people
out of harms way.
In Dominica, the gov-
ernment said no damage or
injuries were reported after
Isaac passed through late
Wednesday. The airport and
seaports have reopened and
things are back to normal,
said Benoit Bardouille, CEO
of the islands Air & Seaport
However, Disaster
Coordinator Don Coriette
warned that heavy rains would
persist through Friday.
Dominica has been spared
the full brunt of Tropical
Storm Isaac, he said. We
want to thank the almighty
God for that.

BEIRUT Syrian reb-
els waged fierce battles with
regime troops in a town
along the Iraqi border today,
capturing a string of secu-
rity posts and the local police
headquarters despite heavy
government shelling and air-
strikes by warplanes, activists
Taking full control of
al-Bukamal, located in the
eastern oil-rich province of
Deir el-Zour and across the
border from the Iraqi town
of Qaim, would expand the
rebel foothold along the fron-
tier with Iraq. The border
crossing point has been in
rebel hands since last month,
although government troops
have remained in control of
much of the town, activists
The opposition already
controls a wide swath of ter-
ritory along the border with
Turkey in the north as well
as pockets along the frontier
with Jordan to the south and
Lebanon to the west, which
has proven key in ferrying
people and material into and
out of the country.
Rebels have been fight-
ing troops for days in al-
Bukamal, but over the past
few hours have taken over
several checkpoints, the main
police station and the local
command of the Political
Security Directorate, one of
Syrias powerful intelligence
agencies, according to Rami
Abdul-Rahman, who heads
the Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human
He added that government
troops are still control of the
border crossing point leading
to Iraq.
There is an attempt to
take full control al-Bukamal,
Abdul-Rahman said.
The Local Coordination
Committees activist group
said warplanes bombed al-
Bukamal, but Abdul-Rahman
said the jets were flying over
the town and struck nearby
areas, not the town itself.
Abu-Omar al-Deery, an
activist in the provincial
capital of Deir el-Zour, said
by telephone that there are
fierce battles in al-Buka-
mal and that the Free Syrian
Army is trying to liberate and
clean the city.
There was no immediate
word on casualties.
The main battle fronts in
the past month have been
in the capital, Damascus, as
well as the northern city of
Aleppo, where regime forces
have struggled to stamp out
a rebel offensive that began
last month and succeeded in
capturing several neighbor-
hoods in the city of 3 million
In a report released today,
the human rights group
Amnesty International said
artillery and mortar fire and
airstrikes by government
forces in Aleppo are killing
mostly civilians, including
children. It said air and artil-
lery strikes against residential
neighborhoods are indiscrim-
inate attacks that seriously
endanger civilians.
Amnesty said that during
a 10-day fact-finding visit to
Aleppo city in the first half of
August, Amnesty investigat-
ed some 30 attacks in which
more than 80 civilians, who
were not directly participat-
ing in hostilities, were killed
and many more were injured.
Amnesty said that among
the dead were 10 members
of one family, seven of them
children. Their home was
destroyed in two airstrikes
on Aug. 6. It said bodies
of mostly young men, most
of them handcuffed and shot
in the head, have been fre-
quently found near the local
headquarters of the powerful
Air Force Intelligence, which
is in a government-controlled
Activists say more than
20,000 people have been

erupted in March last year.

When an ALB chooses to
feed on a tree, the outcome is
the killing of the tree, and since

Dear EarthTalk: What
exactly is the federal govern-
ments Recreational Trails
Program and is it true that
its on the chopping block?
Randy Caldwell, Lyme,
The Recreational Trails
Program (RTP) is a federal
assistance program that helps
states pay for the develop-
ment and maintenance of
recreational trails and trail-
related facilities for both
non-motorized and motorized
recreational trail uses. The
Congressionally mandated
program was in jeopardy due
to budget cuts, but its backers
in Congress announced this
past July that RTP would be
retained to the tune of $85
million per year as part of the
new surface transportation
agreement law called MAP-
21. Minnesota Democratic
Senator Amy Klobuchar was
instrumental in the retention
of RTP by introducing it as
an amendment to MAP-21 as
a stand-alone program with
its own dedicated funding.
Overall, MAP-21 allocates
$105 billion for fiscal years
2013 and 2014 to improve
safety, reduce traffic conges-
tion, maintain infrastructure
and improve the overall effi-
ciency of highway transpor-
tation. RTP is one of sev-
eral provisions of MAP-21
that bolster transit, bike and
pedestrian programs across
the country.
Funding for the RTP por-
tion of MAP-21 comes from
a portion of the motor fuel
excise tax collected across
the country from non-high-
way recreational fuel use
in snowmobiles, all-terrain
vehicles, off-highway motor-
cycles and off-highway light
trucks, and comes out of the
Federal Highway Trust Fund.
Half of the RTP funds are
distributed equally among
all 50 states, and half are
distributed in proportion to
the estimated amount of non-
highway recreational fuel use
in each state. Individual states
are responsible for adminis-
tering their own RTP monies
and soliciting and selecting
qualifying projects.
That said, the use of RTP
funding is restricted to main-
tenance and restoration of
existing trails, development
and rehabilitation of trailside
and trailhead facilities and
trail linkages, purchase and
lease of trail construction and
maintenance equipment, con-
struction of new trails, acqui-
sition of easements or prop-
erty for trails, and assessment
of trail conditions for accessi-
bility and maintenance. RTP
funding may not go toward
property condemnation (emi-
nent domain), construction of
new trails for motorized use
on federally managed pub-
lic lands or for facilitating
motorized access on other-
wise non-motorized trails.
States must allocate 30
percent of their RTP fund-
ing for motorized trail use,
30 percent for non-motorized
use, and the remaining 40 per-
cent for so-called diverse
(motorized and non-motor-
ized) trail use. Projects may
satisfy two categories at the
same time, giving states some
flexibility in how to allocate
their share of the RTP pie.
States can use up to five per-
cent of their funds to dissemi-
nate related publications and
operate educational programs
to promote safety and envi-
ronmental protection related
to trails.
Trail lovers across the
country are thrilled that
Congress extended RTP,
which began in 2005 with a
$60 million allocation and
was increased each of the fol-
lowing years until it plateaued
at $85 million in 2009. The
continuation of the $85 mil-
lion allocation was also good
news to those who feared
that if it wasnt cut entirely
it would be scaled back sig-
nificantly. With new fund-
ing for the next two years,
Americans can look forward
to the creation of many new
trails and continued mainte-
nance of existing ones.

The Congressionally mandated Recreational Trails
Program was in jeopardy due to budget cuts, but its back-
ers in Congress announced this past July that it would be
retained to the tune of $85 million in funding per year.
More than 200 days ago,
the Senate passed a biparti-
san jobs bill that could cre-
ate or save two million jobs
at no cost to taxpayers. Yet,
the House of Representatives
has refused to consider this
common-sense legislation.
Now is the time
for the House of
Representatives to
The bill address-
es one of the big-
gest challenges
facing Ohio manu-
facturers unfair
competition from
Chinese products
that are flooding
our markets, priced
artificially low. And
these products are priced too
low because China cheats by
manipulating its currency.
We know American work-
ers and American manufac-
turers can compete with any-
one. We have skilled, pro-
ductive workers and world
class infrastructure. But when
a country like China purpose-
fully manipulates its currency
to make its exports cheaper,
thats not competingthats
And Chinas blatant cur-
rency manipulation the act
of undervaluing its curren-
cy, the Yuan, to effectively
subsidize its exports drives
American companies out-of-
business, costs Ohio jobs, and
undermines our economy.
The numbers speak for
themselves. Last year, the
U.S. trade deficit with China
reached a record $295 billion.
In June alone, the deficit was
$27.4 billion, nearly one bil-
lion each day. Furthermore, a
report released last year esti-
mates that our trade deficit
with China, exacerbated by
Chinese currency manipu-
lation, has caused the loss
of more than 2.8 million
American jobs since 2001
including more than 1.9 mil-
lion manufacturing jobs.
And Ohio alone has lost
more than 100,000 of those
manufacturing jobs just as a
result of the Chinese trade
This is unconscionable. It
is our responsibility to ensure
that Ohio businesses and
workers compete on a level
playing field. We can do this
with need a common-sense
trade policy that rejects cur-
rency manipulation and puts
Ohio workers first.
Thats why I introduced the
bipartisan Currency
Exchange Rate
Oversight Reform
Act of 2011. This
bill, which cleared
the Senate by a
63-35 vote, seeks
to stop Chinese cur-
rency manipulation
ensuring a fair and
level playing field
for American manu-
The centerpiece
of the bill treats currency
manipulation as what it is
an unfair subsidy and an
illegal trade practice and
provides our government with
the tools to impose duties on
these products flooding our
Ohio jobs can be created
when trade laws are enforced.
In fact, a recent report by
the Economic Policy Institute
showed that addressing cur-
rency manipulation could
support the creation of 2.25
million American jobs.
Americans workers dont
need to cheat; our domes-
tic manufacturers just need a
chance to compete.
We know enforcing fair
trade rules works, because
weve already seen some
positive results. For exam-
ple, in 2010 the International
Trade Commission (ITC), in
response to a petition by Ohio
steel tube producers, ruled
that China was artificially
supporting its steel manu-
facturers. Because of this
ruling, V&M Star was able
to compete with its Chinese
competitors and announced
it would build a new facility
in Youngstown, Ohio creat-
ing 700 construction jobs and
more than 400 good-paying,
permanent jobs.
And while this is a good
start, we cant stop here.
Allowing Chinese curren-
cy manipulation to also be
treated as an export subsidy
would allow more industries
from autos to clean energy
to petition the Commerce
Department and the ITC to
stand up to unfair foreign
imports. It could mean jobs
for a number of industries
from paper to tires to wind
energy components to alu-
The best way to move
Americas economy forward
and reduce our deficit
is to make sure that every
American who wants to work
has a job. The federal govern-
ment has a responsibility to
ensure that Ohios domestic
manufacturers and small busi-
nesses can compete with the
rest of the world.
My bipartisan bill is a jobs
bill. It would help level the
playing field for Ohio busi-
nesses and manufacturers and
help spur our economic recov-
ery. The Senate realized this,
set aside partisan politics, and
passed a bill that stands up
for Ohio manufacturers and
workers who have endured
years of talking and no action
for far too long. Now its time
for the House to do the same.
Thats why I will continue
to urge the House confront
Chinas unfair tactics, pass
the Currency Exchange Rate
Oversight Reform Act of
2011, and help join the fight
for American manufacturing.
Ensuring Ohio workers can compete
Democratic state lawmakers
on Wednesday blasted Ohios
new early voting hours, say-
ing the times could create
long lines in the presidential
battleground state. But the
states Republican elections
chief says the hours are fair
and will remain in place for
the fall.
The rules are set and
are not going to change,
Secretary of State Jon Husted
said in a statement.
Ohio is one of 32 states,
plus the District of Columbia,
that allow voters to cast an
early ballot in person without
having to give a reason.
Husted has ordered elec-
tion boards in Ohios 88 coun-
ties to have the same early in-
person voting hours on week-
days and have no hours on
weekends. Before his direc-
tive, local election boards
made up of two Republicans
and two Democrats were set-
ting their own hours.
Democrats argue not
everyone will have the same
access because the trimmed
hours and days in the more
populous counties will result
in longer lines.
Setting uniform hours
treats all county boards
the same, but it treats vot-
ers unequally and unfairly,
House Minority Leader
Armond Budish said at a news
conference Wednesday.
Counties with hundreds of
thousands of voters shouldnt
be forced to hold the same
hours as those with tens of
thousands, Budish said.
Larger, urban coun-
ties those that tend to be
Democratic-leaning have
higher volumes of early vot-
ers, he said. And longer lines
to vote early or on Election
Day could lead people to
walk away.
Budish and other
Democrats urged Husted to
permit weekend voting and
allow counties to choose to
opt out of it.
Husted has emphasized
that people will have plenty
of time to vote.
Absentee voting begins
35 days before Election Day,
on Oct. 2. Husteds office is
distributing absentee voting
applications to every regis-
tered voter statewide begin-
ning early next month. About
7 million voters are expected
to get an absentee ballot appli-
cation this year, according to
Husteds office.

drearier than a similar alarm

two parties.
Without an agreement
between President Barack
Obama and Congress by
January, tax reductions on vir-
tually all taxpayers are sched-
uled to expire and spending
cuts will be imposed on hun-
dreds of popular domestic and
defense programs. That would

called fiscal cliff, which each

lion economy that is already
struggling. That would be the
largest annual reduction in
the federal deficit compared
to the size of the economy in
more than four decades, said
Douglas Elmendorf, the budget
offices director.
Doing that would probably
lead to a recession early next
year, Elmendorf told report-
That scenario would cause
the economy to shrink by
0.5 percent in 2013 and push
unemployment up to around
9 percent in the second half
of next year, according to the
report. Elmendorf said that
would mean 2 million fewer
jobs than if the tax cuts are
renewed and the spending cuts
The prospect of triggering
a recession added a new level
of risk and complexity to this
years high-profile political
fights over sparking job cre-
ation and curbing mammoth
federal deficits.
Obama wants to renew
expiring tax cuts but let rates
rise on amounts exceeding
$200,000 annually for individ-
uals and $250,000 for couples.
Republicans insist that all tax
reductions be continued. The
two sides are also stuck over
how to head off budget-wide
spending cuts triggered by last
years failure to broker a bipar-
tisan deal on reducing the fed-
eral debt.
The White House said the
budget report showed it is time
for the Republican-led House
to approve tax cuts for all but
the nations highest earners.
The Democratic-led Senate
approved such a bill last
month, while the House passed
one extending tax reductions
for all.

all the recent diversions
over Medicare and abortion,
Republican presidential can-
didate Mitt Romney is still
running a campaign that paints
with a broad economic brush
in hopes of rallying voters
on jobs and fiscal policy.
President Barack Obama,
by contrast, is painting by
the numbers, filling in the
Democratic landscape step by
demographic step.
The presidents pointillist
approach has been on sharp
display in recent weeks as he
has alternately tailored his
campaign speeches and his ad
campaigns to women, older
voters and, most recently, new
young voters who may not
have been old enough to cast a
ballot four years ago.
In each case, Obama has
used Romney and his run-
ning mate, Rep. Paul Ryan of
Wisconsin, as foils, arguing
that their policies would limit
womens health care choices,
force seniors to pay more for
Medicare and cut back on stu-
dent loans.
Ryans place on the
Republican ticket has given
Obama the opportunity to draw
attention to Medicare, singling
out Ryans proposal to over-
haul the health care program
for older Americans and draw-
ing Romney into a skirmish on
an issue that favors Democrats.
Obamas courtship of women
got an unexpected boost by
the eruption over Missouri
Senate candidate Todd Akins
remarks about rape and abor-
tion, prompting an unexpected
debate on that social issue.
As a result, the presidential
campaign is taking shape as a
contest between Democratic
interest-group politics on one
side and the Republicans
single-issue referendum on
Obamas stewardship of the
economy on the other.
Weve got major eco-
nomic debates, but thats not
the only place where we have
debates, Obama told donors
in New York on Wednesday.
To be sure, Obama offers
his own predominant story
line, casting Romney as an
advocate of the rich and an
adversary of the middle class.
But within that narrative there
is room for made-to-order
arguments that are specific to
the various components of the
Democratic coalition.
Romneys camp says that
approach allows Obama to
skirt his economic perfor-
Its a far cry from the
2008 campaign where Obama
sought to build a grand coali-
tion of voters, Romney senior
adviser Kevin Madden said.
Instead, because he has such
a poor record on the economy,
hes been relegated to micro-
targeting individual demo-
graphics and playing them
against each other.
Young voters are high on
Obamas outreach effort. The
enthusiastic grass-roots work
of young people was a signifi-
cant factor in Obamas 2008
victory. This time, the high
schoolers of 2008 are now
eligible to vote, presenting an
untapped source of support.
Im going to need your
help young people espe-
cially Im going to need
your help, Obama told a
crowd at Capital University
in the battleground state of
Ohio on Tuesday. And when
you leave, Im asking you to
grab 10 friends make sure
theyre registered, too.
Obama will continue woo-
ing students next week when
he campaigns in the univer-
sity towns of Ames, Iowa,
Fort Collins, Colo., and
Charlottesville, Va.
Obama has been driving
the education issue by casting
Romney as out of touch with
students and their families.
He has repeatedly reminded
audiences that Romney once
suggested that students could
meet their financial needs by
simply borrowing from their
parents or shopping around for
the best deals.
For Obama, courting
young people is not so much
about securing their vote he
leads Romney 54 to 38 percent
among voters younger than 35
in the latest Associated Press-
GfK poll. Instead, it is about
firing up those young voters
and boosting their numbers.

I havent read the book and
am unaware that anyone in the
Department has reviewed it,
said Pentagon press secretary
George Little. White House
and CIA officials also said the
book had not been reviewed by
their agencies.
The book announcement
comes just as a group of
retired special operations and
CIA officers have launched a
campaign accusing President
Barack Obama of revealing
classified details of the mis-
sion and turning the killing of
bin Laden into a campaign cen-
terpiece. The group complains
that Obama has taken too much
credit for the operation.
Their public complaints
drew a rebuke from Gen.
Martin Dempsey, chairman of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as
well as other special operations
forces, who called the partisan
criticism unprofessional.
Dempsey said that such
public political involvement
by members of armed services
erodes public confidence and
trust in the military.
The author of the upcoming

the military, is using the pseud-
onym Mark Owen. And in a
news release from publisher
Dutton, an imprint of Penguin
Group (USA), Owen describes
the book as an effort to set the
record straight about one of
the most important missions in
U.S. military history.
He said the book is about
the guys and the sacrifices
that the special operations forc-
es make to do the job and is
written in the hope that it will

If the book sticks to his
personal thoughts about the

special operations forces must
sign nondisclosure agreements.
And they are not allowed to
release classified information,

military tactics and procedures
used to ensure success of the

Christine Ball, a spokes-
woman for Dutton, said the
work was vetted by a former
special operations attorney
provided by the author.
He vetted it for tactical,
technical and procedural infor-
mation as well as information
that could be considered classi-
fied by compilation and found
it to be without risk to national
security, Ball said.

officials spoke at the meeting

the need to provide more help

unless the economy improved
The Fed has already sought
to drive down long-term rates
by buying more than $2 tril-
lion in Treasury bonds and
mortgage-backed securities in
two previous rounds of bond
purchases. The purchases are
called quantitative easing.
Based on the minutes, David
Jones, chief economist at DMJ
Advisors, said he thought the
likelihood of further quanti-
tative easing had risen from
evenly split to as high as a 70
percent chance that the Fed
will make that move when it
meets Sept. 12-13.
I believe the Fed is signal-
ing in very clear terms that
a third round of bond pur-
chases will be approved at the
September meeting, Jones
In the minutes, the Fed
noted, Many members judged
that additional monetary
accommodation would likely
be warranted fairly soon unless
incoming information pointed
to a substantial and sustainable
strengthening in the pace of the
economic recovery.
Paul Ashworth, chief
U.S. economist at Capital
Economics, said that wording
signaled that the Fed wont
be satisfied by the modest
improvements the economy
has made recently.
Quantitative easing is
still very much on the table,
Ashworth said.
The minutes also show
many officials favor pushing
the timetable for any increase
in record-low short-term rates

get of late 2014 at the ear-
liest. Some economists think
the target will be extended to
Reaction in the stock and
bond markets was positive but
muted. The Standard & Poors
500 stock index, down most
of the day, finished essentially
flat. The price of gold rose, as
it sometimes does when inves-
tors think the Fed will pump
more money into the economy.
Gold hit $1,657 an ounce, its
highest level since May.
The Fed releases minutes
of its private discussions three
weeks after each meeting. After
it meets in September, Fed
policymakers will also update
their economic forecasts, and
Chairman Ben Bernanke will
hold a news conference.
Ashworth and some other
economists said the minutes
suggested that if the Fed does
launch a new bond buying
program, it wont set a target
amount, as it has in the past.
Rather, the Fed could keep a
new program open-ended so
it could continue to buy bonds
until it saw a significant decline
in the unemployment rate, now
at 8.3 percent.

The Delphos Herald
Wednesday night, the
Riverdale Falcons traveled to
the home of the Big Green for
an early-season boys soccer
The Big Green jumped
out early to a 4-0 lead after
one half and held on to beat
the visiting Falcons 5-3 to
improve to 3-0-0.
The first 10 minutes of the
contest found the Big Greens
senior Anthony Eickholt find-
ing the back of the net twice
(36:15 and 32:08) to give his
team an early 2-0 lead.
The third goal for the Big
Green came as a gift from
the Falcon defenders as the
throw-in by the Big Green
into the box was headed into
their own goal by the Falcons
Brandon Rall at the 18:58
mark, with Alex Horstman
getting credit.
The fourth and final Big
Green goal of the first 40
minutes came at the 15:37
mark when junior Alex
Horstman was awarded and
converted on a penalty kick
after a Falcon foul in the
box and a related yellow card
issued, making the score 4-0.
The Falcons, as head coach
John Hayfield often encour-
aged his squad, did not play a
bad half but the ball bounced
right for the Big Green and
they took advantage of every
break given to them as good
teams do.
Shots on-goal for the first
half favored the home team
Theres a reason why a soc-
cer game has two halves and
the Big Green found
that out Wednesday
The Falcons (0-2-
0) came out in the
second half and gave
the home team every-
thing they wanted.
The first 20 minutes
saw both teams have
opportunities to score
but the Big Greens
goalie, sophomore Colin
Bendele, and Falcon junior
goalie Jimmy Fox were up to
the task.
At the 17:05 mark, the
Falcons were given a free kick
after a Big Green foul. They
set up for the kick with three
guys around the ball. The
first two approached the ball
from different directions and
as they cleared it, left the ball
sitting there for senior Caleb
Shultis; he didnt disappoint,
sending a line-drive shot to
the left corner of the goal in
making it a 4-1 game.
As good and experienced
teams do, the Big Green came
right back at the 15:05 mark
with some fancy footwork
from Eickholt; he beat his
Falcon defender and found
the right side of the goal,
making the score 5-1, home
Eickholt has been
Ottovilles leading scorer on
the year and could only praise
his team for his success: The
team did a great job tonight
and they
e x e c u t e d
their pass-
es and our
o f f e n s i v e
sets and I
was just for-
tunate to be
in the right
place at the
right time.
C o a c h
Eric Gerker has appreciated
Eickholts effort early this
year: Anthony stepped up
tonight and had a good game.
His senior leadership and
ability to finish has allowed
him some opportunities this
year and hes put the ball
in the net when given the
The Falcons didnt go
down without a strong final
push as Shultis scored at the
7:12 mark after a penalty kick
was awarded to the Falcons.
Shultis finished the hat
trick at the 3:12 mark with
a booming kick from the far
right side of the field, finding
the left side of the net and out
of the reach of Bendele, mak-
ing the final score 5-3 as time
For the match, the Big
Green had 10 shots on-goal
while the Falcons with their
second-half spurt finished
with nine.
Coach Gerker knows
a win is a win but realizes
that his team needs to work
on several things: Tonight
was a tale of two halves. We
didnt possess the ball well
all night and we came out
very slow and played pretty
slow all night. Our execu-
tion in the first half I thought
was good and when we got
the ball down on their end,
we were able to get some
goals; we caught them out of
position a couple of times.
The second half, they had
us on our heels. Anthonys
third goal as an equalizer was
huge when they went on their
scoring spree. Our possession
game needs to be better and
thats something we need to
improve on going forward. If
we can get this team clicking
on all cylinders, weve got
some good things ahead of us
to look forward to.
The Falcons will next play
Saturday at Liberty-Benton
with a 10 oclock start.
The Big Green will travel
to Bryan Saturday for a 1
oclock start.

Local Sports Roundup
Its amazing to me that the high
school football season is upon us.
This summer went so fast; it
seems they are going faster as I get
The golfers have been in full
swing for two weeks now and girls
tennis for about a week; soccer began
Saturday for many area teams.
Volleyball and cross country
begin Saturday.
Thankfully, the weather has been
a lot better than what we are used to,
especially the people in the pads.
Lets hope that all the athletes
participating be they boys or girls
will have a fun and injury-free
time this fall.
After all, isnt that what high
school sports are REALLY all
about? Most of the players will not
be playing these sports on an orga-
nized/varsity level when their high
school days are through and they
head off to college.
Its always fun to speculate about
who will do what and when as
long as no tempers flare!
So, Augusta National Golf Club
has announced that Condoleezza
Rice and Darla Moore will become
the first two women members in its
80-year history.
Women have actually been
allowed to golf the prestigious course
as guests, just not as members.
Billy Payne who took over for
Hootie Johnson as chairman after
his battles with the likes of Martha
Burk 10 years ago announced the
joyous occasion the other day.
I guess they did it on their own
terms and not at as Johnson said
then in those famous battles the
point of a bayonet.
It is a prestigious honor because,
apparently, there are only 300 mem-
bers of the club (does anyone really
know for sure?) and they are all
wealthy (that we DO know!). Its
pretty exclusive to begin with.
Many critics/bloggers I have read
about this decision hail the end of
a Neanderthal policy or call it a
publicity stunt, writing such things
that Augusta needed Rice and
Moore or even going so far as sug-
gesting the two women should have
told Augusta no.
I beg to differ.
One, Augusta doesnt need
anyone. They proved that with Burk
10 years ago when the powers-
that-be called her bluff and went
without sponsorship in 2003 and
2004 and did just fine and year
after year, drawing thousands to the
Two, telling them no would be
just as snobby as the club is accused
of being, suggesting to me that
were going to judge you for not
having the right reasons for ask-
Am I writing that this shouldnt
have been done? Perish the thought.
They can do what they want with
the membership and if they decided
it was time, so be it. All I know is I
will never become a member not
unless a long-lost family member or
friend leaves me a zillion dollars
OK, maybe a million or two!
Now we shall see if those same
critics will call for Burk to open
up the National Organization for
Women to men; thats a neander-
thal policy, too, in my book.
I imagine that there have been
a few men who have asked to join
over the years (though we will never
know for sure how many), even
for a publicity stunt, let alone for
some other reason that could be
considered a good one. If they were
turned down, they werent suing the
organization or making a big stink
about it or at least we never
heard about it.
Some write thats not the same
thing but I beg to differ; whats right
is right, right?
What do you think would happen
if an organization formed called the
National Organization for Men?
(By the way, I did some quick
research to make sure there was no
such group, I came upon one titled
that but it was, well, basically dor-
mant. From what I gather, it was ...
not well received! I also tried to find
out of there were, indeed, men who
were official members of NOW. I
could only find references to some
that were on the founding board in
1966 but no others recently, though
the web site wasnt too accommo-
dating to finding that out. It did not
say if men were welcome or not but
if men can be official members, I
apologize beforehand. I will con-
tinue to do research and follow up
as necessary.)
As that great American philos-
opher, Keith Jackson, might say:
Whoa, Nelly! What would hit the
fan if NOFM were to come back to
life or some such organization be
Do I need to go there?
Im just saying whats good for
the goose ...
Then we can talk.

OMAHA, Neb. Its
hard to tell what frustrates
Todd Eggerling more the
weather or Congress.
Searing temperatures and
drought scorched Eggerlings
land in southeast Nebraska,
leaving little grass to feed
his 100 cattle. Then Congress
left for a five-week break
without agreeing on aid to
help ranchers through one
of the worst droughts in the
nations history.
That means it will be
September before Eggerling
and other ranchers can even
hope for disaster aid legis-
lation that includes cash to
buy feed until they would
normally send their cattle to
feedlots or slaughter in the
fall or winter. For some, its
already too late. Out of grass
and out of cash, theyve sold
their animals.
For others, time is rap-
idly running out as they try to
hold on. Their decisions will
affect the price and supply
of meat for months, perhaps
years, to come.
Id like to see every one
of the senators and congress-
men go out into one of these
widespread, drought-stricken
areas and spend a day, said
Eggerling, 44, of Martell,
Neb. Walk around and see
the effects of whats going
on. Look at the local econo-
mies and see whats going to
happen to them. Then they
can go back to Washington
with a real perspective and
say, Hey; we need to do
Most farmers are having
a hard year with drought and
unusually warm temperatures
in the middle of the country
burning up everything from
corn to cabbage. But ranchers
are in a particularly precari-
ous position because most
dont have access to federally
subsidized insurance pro-
grams that cover crops like
corn and soybeans.
Private companies
wont insure grazing land
because its too hard to pre-
dict losses, and ranchers
say pilot programs tested
by the U.S. Department of
Agriculture are too expen-
sive and pay out little when
theres a loss, Nebraska Farm
Service Agency director Dan
Steinkruger said.
The White House
announced last week that the
federal government will buy
up to $170 million worth of
pork and other meat for food
assistance programs in an
effort to help drought-strick-
en farmers. The Defense
Department also was expect-
ed to encourage its vendors to
speed up meat purchases in an
effort to prop up prices with a
glut on the market expected
in the next few months.
Feed prices soared amid
the drought, and livestock
farmers have been selling off
animals for months as they
run out of money. The meat is
expected to hit grocery stores
this fall, with prices drop-
ping briefly and then rising
early next year. Meanwhile,
farmers are getting a fraction
of what their animals would
normally be worth at sales.
Its not like we can hold
our products like setting a
shirt on a shelf until it sells for
the price we set, said Kristen
Hassebrook, a spokeswoman
for the Nebraska Cattlemen,
a trade group. We cant just
tell that steer or heifer to
stop eating for a couple of
days until the market share
goes up. If we cant feed
that animal, we have to sell
it for whatever the price is
that day.
The Obama administration
also has offered low-interest
emergency loans, opened
federal land for grazing and
distributed $30 million to get
water to livestock. Farmers
say theyll take what help
they can get, but emergency
loans come with a tangle of
red tape and arent available
to everyone. Water is appre-
ciated, but animals need to
eat, and even with grazing on
some federal land, hay is in
short supply.
The House approved $383
million in disaster relief ear-
lier this month, but Congress
went home before the Senate
acted on the bill. The Senate
had previously passed a
disaster aid package as part
of a five-year farm bill, but
GOP leaders in the House
refused to bring that to a vote
because many Republicans
object to the nearly $80 bil-
lion included for the food
stamp program.
The standoff left ranchers
uncertain about what to do:
Should they buy expensive
feed, assuming the federal
government will ultimately
help them pay the bill, or
should they sell their cattle
at a loss, knowing they may
find out later they would have
been eligible for aid?
For Congress to put this
off for five weeks until they
come back is really, really
difficult to understand, said
Michael Kelsey, executive
vice president of Nebraska
With no grass for grazing,
Eggerling cut corn and soy-
beans stunted by the drought
to use as cattle feed. But that
will soon run out, he said, and
hell send animals he cant
feed to slaughter. Because
they havent reached their
full weight and hes paid by
the pound, hell take a loss.
If I get out of this year
with a $50,000 net loss, Ill
be happy, he said.
Its not clear how much
money individual ranch-
ers would receive even if
Congress passed the House
bill upon members return.
The estimated $383 million
disaster relief package would
be divvied up among eligible
applicants, and a number of
factors would be considered
in deciding awards. Some
may get nothing. Others
could get tens of thousands
of dollars.
Ranchers lose hope drought
aid will come in time to help
Id like to see every one of
the senators and congressmen go
out into one of these widespread,
drought-stricken areas and spend
a day. Walk around and see the
effects of whats going on. Look at
the local economies and see whats
going to happen to them. Then
they can go back to Washington
with a real perspective and say,
Hey; we need to do something.

BEREA Joe Hadens training
camp and a stormy one for the
Browns ended before any of his
teammates were finished.
Arguably Clevelands best defen-
sive player, Haden was kicked off the
practice field Wednesday by coach Pat
Shurmur, who felt the third-year corner-
back was being too physical with rookie
wide receiver Travis Benjamin during a
passing drill on the final day of work-
outs open to fans.
Haden was ordered to leave roughly
an hour into the practice by an angry
Shurmur, who declined to provide
details of the incident during his news
Im not going to talk about it,
Shurmur chirped. Thats between me
and the player. I have a great deal of
respect for Joe. If you want details,
youre going to have to find it on
Twitter. My only apology is that I used
bad language and the fans were here
to see it. Joes a great competitor and I
appreciate what he does and who he is
and thats the last youll hear me talk
about it.
Shurmur didnt even let a reporter
finish a follow-up question.
During 7-on-7 drills, Benjamin
caught a touchdown pass in the back of
the end zone when he was taken down
by Haden, who unsuccessfully tried to
strip the ball and then yanked on the
back of Benjamins jersey. After being
ejected by Shurmur, Haden removed his
helmet and shoulder pads and quickly
headed into the locker room.
Team president Mike Holmgren was
watching practice from a nearby bench
when Haden was excused.
The Browns (No. 30 in the AP Pro32)
denied interview requests for Haden,
who was back on the field for the after-
noon walkthrough.
After that session, Shurmur said he
and Haden had cleared the air.
Shurmurs annoyance with Haden
could be understandable given the rash
of injuries that have plagued the Browns
since camp opened last month.
Benjamin recently missed time with
an undisclosed injury and 13 players,
including rookie running back Trent
Richardson, sat out Wednesdays work-
out. Richardson recently underwent knee
surgery. On Monday, running back Chris
Ogbonnaya sustained a leg injury when
he got tangled at the end of a play.
Shurmur acknowledged player safety
is his primary concern.
Its important that we practice
smart, he added. You have to be able
to practice at game speed and you win
and lose in practice. I think its impor-
tant that guys understand that. I want all
of our guys to make it to the horse race.
Safety, everything I do I think about
these players and this team.
Hadens early dismissal capped
an eventful camp for both he and the
In the first few days, owner Randy
Lerner announced he was selling the
team to truck-stop magnate Jimmy
Haslam III, who is buying the Browns
for $1 billion. Richardson, the No. 3
overall pick in Aprils draft, underwent
microscopic surgery on his left knee and
has yet to play in an exhibition game.
Starting outside linebacker Chris
Gocong sustained a season-ending inju-
ry and there has been continuous specu-
lation about the future of former starting
quarterback Colt McCoy, who lost his
job to rookie Brandon Weeden.
Those issues came on the heels of
defensive tackle Phil Taylor tearing
a chest muscle lifting weights (hes
expected to miss at least 6 games) and
linebacker Scott Fujitas 3-game sus-
pension from his involvement in the
New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.
Haden, too, has been embroiled in
controversy this summer. Hes facing a
possible 4-game suspension by the NFL
for reportedly failing a drug test.
Hadens on-field actions on
Wednesday seemed out of character for
the easygoing and popular 23-year-old,
who was drafted by Cleveland with the
seventh overall pick in 2010. Haden had
six interceptions as a rookie but didnt
have any last season, when he was
plagued by several drops.

By Bernice Bede Osol
Annie says
writer may
be asexual
Dear Annie: Ive been
married for 14 years. The first
few, everything was good,
and then I stopped enjoying
sex. Ive seen several dif-
ferent doctors and had my
hormones checked, and the
verdict is that I am in great
health for a 39-year-old.
I think the main
problem is, while I
love my husband,
I dont find him
attractive. Im not
sure I ever did. I
was 23 when we
met and had never
had a boyfriend.
Men had never
been interested in
me until he came
along. He is smart,
funny and experi-
mental in the
bedroom, so it isnt like we
havent tried new things. He
would do anything for me.
But, Annie, having sex
with him is a massive chore.
I suspect he knows this, and
I hate making him feel bad.
I cant fake passion I dont
feel. To tell the truth, I doubt
another man would do it
for me, either, and Im not
attracted to women. I feel
like a part of me is missing,
and I dont know how to
find it. What now? -- Berlin,
Dear Berlin: It is pos-
sible that you are asexual --
meaning you are not attract-
ed, sexually, to anyone. If
this sounds like what you are
experiencing, please look into
AVEN (Asexual Visibility
and Education Network) at
However, if your libido
previously was working fine
and your lack of interest was
sudden, you may want to get
a referral to see a doctor who
specializes in sexual disor-
ders. A normal balance of
hormones for most women
may be insufficient for you.
And of course, there are other
possibilities -- psychological
issues, weight issues, nutri-
tion deficiencies, medications
-- all of which can affect
desire and libido. You owe it
to yourself and your husband
to figure this out. Good luck.
Dear Annie: I am appalled
by my own offspring. My son
is 30, and my daughter-in-
law is 27. My grandchild is
16 months old.
We had been traveling
and stopped at a restaurant.
While we waited for our
food, my son and his wife
fed my grandchild her dinner.
The end result was at least
10 pasta noodles dropped on
the carpeted floor under the
table. I cleaned them up, but
it should have been the job of
my so-called adult children
to leave our table floor area
clean. They felt it was no big
deal to leave the mess.
We most likely will never
return to that restaurant, and
they wont remember us any-
way. But if it had been my
place of business, I would
have told us not to return
until we had manners. What
do you say? -- Angry and
Dear Angry: We say calm
down. Restaurants
serve food. People
-- both children
and adults -- spill
and drop food all
the time. While
one should not
deliberately toss
food around, and it
behooves parents to
keep the mess to a
minimum and pick
up what they can,
it isnt necessary to
leave the floor spot-
less. Cleaning up is part of
the overhead costs, and the
management does not expect
patrons to do all the work.
Dear Annie: I believe you
were wrong in your advice
to Frustrated and Alone in
Indianapolis, whose mother
is difficult. You suggested he
try to find better ways to deal
with her.
I, too, have had to deal
with a mother like his. I final-
ly had to make the same deci-
sion and cut all ties. It was
not easy, but I am healthier
for it. I dont miss my moth-
er, only the idea of a mother.
Some people are so toxic that
you simply cannot have them
in your life. -- B.T.
Dear B.T.: Frustrateds
mother sounded like some-
one who has learned to push
her sons buttons. We felt it
might be worth figuring out
how to respond differently
to her and see whether that
helps before cutting her off.
We still do.

Annies Mailbox
Certain happenings in the year
ahead could help
you fulfill your
hopes and advance
your long-range
plans. This good
luck will not be
financial in nature
-- itll be far more valuable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- It behooves you to reassess your
objectives in case you might be
striving for something thats not
worth the effort. Make sure that your
priorities are in the right place.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
Dont waste your time arguing with
someone about an issue that he or
she isnt willing to budge on. All its
likely to do is cause you a great deal
of discomfort.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) --
Untangle yourself from any mundane
involvement with another that
distracts you from your own interests.
To succeed, be dedicated to your own
21) -- Instead of relying on another for
support, try to be self-sufficient. Even
if this persons help is forthcoming,
you might find that youre better off
without it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- In order to be successful, its
imperative that you have staying
power. Guard against slackening your
effort just when your objective is
within reach.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) --
Just because associates might not be
totally in accord with your interests,
it doesnt mean they dislike you. In
order to see things clearly, dont let
your emotions dictate your reasoning.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --
Certain advantages that you presently
possess might be lost or undermined
if you exert too much pressure on
cohorts. Know when to stop pushing
and when to start pleasing.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) --
Keep an open mind and give associates
credit for being at least as smart as
you. Its a mistake to discount their
ideas and views just because theyre
different from yours.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) --
Chances are youll get better terms
if you allow the other party to make
the first proposal in a business deal.
Associates are apt to treat you more
generously than you anticipate.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- As
long as companions are cooperative
and making concessions, youll be
extremely congenial. Should they
want what you want, however, itll be
another story.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) --
Provided you dont take on something
that youre ill prepared to handle,
the probability for fulfilling your
ambitious objectives are good. Try to
operate within known boundaries.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Unless
you can rise above your emotions,
think twice before attending a social
gathering that will include some

PHILADELPHIA Ousted Penn State
president Graham Spanier and his law-
yers attacked a university-backed report on
the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal on
Wednesday, calling it a blundering and
indefensible indictment as they fired a pre-
emptive strike while waiting to hear if hell
be charged in the case.
Lawyer Timothy Lewis called Louis Freeh,
the former FBI director and federal judge
behind the report, a biased investigator
who piled speculation on top of innuendo to
accuse Spanier in a cover-up of early abuse
The Freeh report, as it pertains to Dr.
Spanier, is a myth. And that myth ... ends
today, Lewis said at a downtown Philadelphia
news conference.
Spanier did not attend. But he told media
outlets in stories published hours later that he
never understood the early complaints about
Sandusky, who this year was convicted of
molesting 10 boys, to be sexual.
Im very stunned by Freehs conclusion
that I dont think he used the word cover-
up; but he uses the word concealed,
Spanier told The New Yorker magazine.
Why on earth would anybody cover up for a
known child predator? Adverse publicity? For
heavens sake! Every day I had to make some
decision that got adverse publicity.
Never in my time as president of Penn
State did I ever ever once receive a
report from anyone that suggested that Jerry
Sandusky was involved in any child abuse,
in any sexual abuse, in any criminal act,
Spanier told ABC-TV in an interview aired
on Nightline late Wednesday night.
Spanier told ABC that he was told only
that Sandusky had been seen engaging in
horseplay in a campus shower with a boy
and he took that to mean throwing water
around, snapping towels.
I wish in hindsight that I would have
known more about Jerry Sandusky and his
terrible, terrible hidden past so that I could
have intervened because it would have been
my instinct to do so, he said.
The New Yorker interview was published
online after ABC News began promoting its
own interview with Spanier, set to air in parts
on several of its networks Wednesday and
At the news conference, Lewis, also a
former federal judge, complained that Freeh
never interviewed key witnesses, ignored
inconvenient facts and manipulated the truth.
For instance, he said, the report assumes
former graduate assistant Mike McQueary
told coach Joe Paterno in 2001 that he saw
something sexual in a locker room shower
and that Paterno echoed that to athletic direc-
tor Tim Curley and vice president Gary
Schultz. Freeh likewise, he said, assumes that
they in turn told Spanier the same thing.
Curley and Schultz have denied that they
ever told Dr. Spanier anything of the sort,
Lewis said. Horseplay was referred to over
and over again, but never with any sexual
connotation or suggestion of abuse. But Judge
Freeh paid no attention to that.
The Freeh group said Wednesday that it
stands by its report.
Its investigation uncovered documents that
suggest Spanier had deeper knowledge of
the early Sandusky complaints, including
an email in which the president appeared to
agree with Curleys decision to keep a 2001
assault from child-welfare authorities and
instead work directly with Sandusky and
Sanduskys charity for at-risk youths.
The only downside for us is if the mes-
sage isnt heard and acted upon, and we then
become vulnerable for not having reported
it, said Spaniers email, dated Feb. 27, 2001.
The approach you outline is humane and a
reasonable way to proceed.
Spanier told ABC-TV that he doesnt
remember the memo but it sounds like me.
The word vulnerable, Spanier said,
may not have been the best choice of the
term but was a reaction to the possibil-
ity that we didnt want this to happen and if
he didnt accept that and understand it, we
would be disturbed by it and perhaps need to
take further action. But the message we got
back was that he heard the message and was
Spaniers four high-profile lawyers, who
are being paid by Penn State, argue that Freeh
took the email out of context.
As for a 1998 report that Sandusky had
showered with a boy a complaint that led
to a campus police investigation referred to
county prosecutors they note that prosecu-
tors declined to charge Sandusky.
There was thus nothing to conceal, the
lawyers wrote in a rebuttal to the report
released Wednesday.
Spanier and Paterno were ousted in
November, days after Sandusky was charged.
Sandusky, who maintains his innocence,
awaits sentencing.
Curley and Schultz are charged with perju-
ry and failing to report suspected child abuse;
they maintain their innocence, and their attor-
neys issued statements after Wednesdays
broadcast also blasting the Freeh report.
Spaniers lawyers said they dont know
whether he will be charged.
Thats out of our control, lawyer Jack
Riley said.
A spokesman in the attorney generals
office has declined to comment on possible
charges, while calling the Sandusky probe
ongoing and active.

attended the law firm news conference, said
the board has never adopted Freehs report,

inmates housed at different
Indiana prisons ran a drug
ring that distributed metham-
phetamine and heroin thanks
to cellphones smuggled in by
guards, according to a federal
indictment that charges 40
people in connection with the
An indictment unsealed
Wednesday alleges that the
purported ringleader, Oscar
Perez, and an inmate at
another prison, Justin Addler,
even conference called with
a third man using smuggled
cellphones to discuss pool-
ing their financial resources
to get a discount on heroin.
At least 17 people
appeared in court Wednesday
in Indianapolis after about
300 FBI agents fanned out
across the state and made
arrests. A judge ordered them
to remain in custody. Only
one prison guard was among
those charged, though the
indictment alleges several
were involved. Prosecutors
declined to say if more charg-
es were expected.
Few details about the
defendants were included in
the court documents, though
prison records show Perez
is serving time for mur-
der and attempted murder
at Westville Correctional
Facility in northern Indiana,
while Addler is housed at
central Indianas Pendleton
Correctional Facility on con-
victions including drug deal-
The indictment details a
series of alleged phone calls
the two men placed to people
outside the prisons, includ-
ing to oversee the purchase
of large amounts of heroin
from a source in Chicago.
They also instructed people
how and where the drugs
should be sold, prosecutors
Once acquired, the heroin
was brought from Illinois to
Indiana by the use of couri-
ers where it was, in turn,
distributed on the streets to
various places in central and
southern Indiana, the indict-
ment states.
Meth was acquired from
sources in California, while
other drugs, including PCP,
were also involved, accord-
ing to the indictment.
In at least one call in
May 2012, Addler stayed
on the phone with a woman
throughout the duration of
a drug deal as she sold about
20 grams of heroin at a truck
stop in Crawfordsville, Ind.,
for $2,500, according to the
Tim Horty, a spokes-
man for U.S. Attorney Joe
Hogsett, declined to discuss
the indictment, including
whether additional inmates
or prison guards might be
charged. Doug Garrison, a
spokesman for the Indiana
Department of Correction,
also declined to comment.
The lone corrections
officer facing charges, Jon
Dobbins, worked at another
prison, the Wabash Valley
Correctional Facility in south-
western Indiana. The indict-
ment alleges he was found
in possession of nearly 21
grams of a substance contain-
ing meth, and had a cellphone
that he intended to clandes-
tinely bring into the prison
and leave with an inmate.
Dobbins didnt have
a listed phone number in
Indiana, according to phone
records. Horty confirmed that
Dobbins was the only cor-
rectional officer named in the
indictment, but he declined
further comment.
The Indiana Department
of Correction issued a state-
ment saying it has been coop-
erating with the FBI since
the investigation began and
that that department uncov-
ered the evidence that led to
The actions of the small
number of any IDOC cor-
rectional employees who may
have facilitated these illegal
activities brings dishonor to
them and tarnishes the good
name and professionalism of

employees, the departments

Police in Jonesboro say the
girlfriend of a man shot to
death in the back of a squad
car told an investigator he had
called her from the car and
said he had a gun.
In a four-page statement
police offered several new
details about the investiga-
tion into the July 28 death
of Chavis Carter, 21. Earlier
this week, an autopsy report
ruled that Carters death was
a suicide.
Carters girlfriend, who
was not identified in the
report, also told the investiga-
tor that Carter said he loved
her and that he was scared,
according to the police state-
ment. Phone records showed
Carter made two calls, at least
one of which was from the
back of the patrol car, police
Benjamin Irwin, a
Memphis, Tenn., lawyer rep-
resenting Carters family, said
in an emailed response early
Thursday that in previous
reports and information we
had about (the girlfriend) was
that no mention of a gun dur-
ing the call was included. ...
After watching the other
witness interviews, I can only
speculate that the interview
involved a lot of leading ques-
tions by the investigator.
Police have been facing
criticism since they said offi-
cers searched Carter twice but
didnt find a gun before he
was fatally shot in a patrol
car. Race is also an issue in
the case because Carter was
black and police have said the
two officers who stopped the
truck he was in are white.
The police statement said
there appears to be no doubt
that an officer missed the gun
when he initially patted Carter
It is presumed that Carter
secreted the gun in the rear of
the car after the pat-down but
before the cuffing and second
search, the statement said.
The statement said it was
meant to be a brief prelimi-
nary investigative summary
and noted that the investiga-
tion into Carters death isnt
complete. However, the state-
ment said evidence and wit-
ness statements support the
medical examiners conclu-
sion that Carter killed him-
I think the critical points
still remain that this young
man was in police custody,
Irwin said Wednesday. He
lost his life at a time when
they had a responsibility and
duty to protect him.
Spokesman Sgt. Lyle
Waterworth didnt respond to
an email or phone message
seeking further comment.
Police also said they
tracked down a man from a
video on Carters phone who
said he sent Carter a text mes-
sage asking him to bring him
a gun shortly before his run-in
with the officers. That man
also said Carter was involved
with a drug deal involving 4
ounces of marijuana, police
Police have said officers
found marijuana on Carter
when they searched him. The
autopsy report also said he
tested positive for meth and
other drugs.
The police statement also
said blood spatter on Carters
right hand showed his hand
was close to the contact
wound on his right temple.
Blood was also on a rear pas-
senger door of the patrol car,
police said.
Officers and bystanders
said the patrol car doors and
windows were closed and that
the officers werent near the
car until Carter was found,
police said.
This virtually eliminates
any possibility that the fatal
wound was caused by any
weapon other than the one
recovered in the rear of the
vehicle and that its discharge
was caused by Carter, police
said in the statement.
The Arkansas state crime
lab confirmed Wednesday
that it did not perform gun-
shot residue testing on Carter,
saying it doesnt do that kind
of analysis on victims of
homicides or suicides.
The confirmation came
after Jonesboro Police Chief
Michael Yates told The
Associated Press that the
department had requested
the testing but that it wasnt
done because of the agencys
