Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869
Friday, August 24, 2012
Delphos, Ohio when asked why the compromise was refused. Allen County Board of Elections Deputy Director Mark Vernik prefers local control. He said displeasure can be expected when the state has to step in and put an end to partisan bickering. “By mail, everybody has equal access but some counties may have a unique need. Local control is needed so they can assess their needs and resources at the local level but when the state has to come in, some counties will like it and others won’t,” he said. “From an administrative perspective, there is an advantage to having those last few days before the election to get everything in order. The political parties can tussle over standardized rules but I think it’s good. If you don’t want to wait in line, you can have the ballot mailed to you and mail it back in or return it in person. There are multiple opportunities to vote and it’s easy to vote — however you chose to vote.” Absentee voting in Ohio begins Oct. 2. Husted’s office will distribute the applications to every registered voter in the state and about 7 million voters are expected to get the application.

Early voting in Ohio
Vernik says Husted did right thing
BY MIKE FORD firstname.lastname@example.org Expecting this year’s general election to be contentious, Ohio Republicans and Democrats are eager to get any edge they can find. Democrats in Columbus are concerned urban voters may shy away from long lines at the polls and would like more availability for early voting at county election board offices. Controversy erupted over the issue recently because local boards consist of two persons from each party and Secretary of State John Husted decided there would be no extended hours if local bodies could not agree in setting their own hours. Democrats charged Husted of playing politics, so he enacted a uniform schedule that will extend closing time until 7 p.m. in the two weeks before the election on Nov. 2, but only on weekdays. Democrats have called on Husted to permit weekend hours and allow county boards to opt out. This would strike a balance between uniformity and local control, permitting the unique needs of each county to be met. Husted declined the invitation in a statement issued last week. “Voting in Ohio is uniform, accessible, fair and secure. This year, with the combination of absentee ballots and early in-person voting, Ohioans will have more access to voting than ever before. Early voting starts 35 days before the election and there are more than 750 hours to vote by mail and 230 hours to vote in person, plus all day on Election Day. The rules are set and are not going to change,” he wrote. The Herald spoke with Husted’s representative, Alexis Zoldan, who simply repeated Husted’s language

VW commissioners stop retire/rehire
By Ed Gebert Times Bulletin Editor
VAN WERT — A controversial practice has been stopped for those appointed directly by the Van Wert County Commissioners with action on Thursday. Commissioner Thad Lichtensteiger announced: “We passed a resolution in the commissioner’s office saying that we will not retire/rehire any employee for which we are the appointing authority. That would take care of Job and Family Services, any of our direct employees, clerk, secretary, worker, people in janitorial and maintenance, in human resources.

Historical Society, museum preserves history for Allen County since 1908

Us: Missile defense for nKorea threat, not China
By MAttHeW PenninGton the Associated Press WASHINGTON — The United States is in discussions with close ally Japan about expanding a missile defense system in Asia, the top U.S. general said Thursday. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was commenting on a Wall Street Journal report that the U.S. is discussing positioning an early warning radar in southern Japan, supplementing one already in place in the country’s north, to contain threats from North Korea and to counter China’s military. The State Department, however, said the missile defense system is not directed against China. Dempsey said no decisions have been reached on expanding the radar. “But it’s certainly a topic of conversation because missile defense is important to both of our nations,” Dempsey told reporters at the start of a meeting with his visiting Japanese counterpart, Gen. Shigeru Iwasaki, at the Pentagon. Japan has worked closely with the U.S. for several years on missile defense, and has both land- and sea-based missile launchers. North Korea’s ballistic missiles are considered a threat to security in the Asia-Pacific region because of the risk of conflict erupting on the divided and heavily militarized Korean peninsula, and because of the secretive North’s nuclear weapons program. The long-range rockets it is developing have been test-fired over Japan and potentially could reach the U.S. The North conducted its latest long-range rocket launch in April, defying a U.N. ban. The North said the launch was intended to send an observation satellite into space but it drew international condemnation as the rocket technology is similar to that used for ballistic missiles. The rocket disintegrated soon after takeoff. U.S. defense planners are also concerned about China’s military buildup, including its missile capabilities. The U.S. wants to enhance its longstanding military presence in the region as part of a rebalancing of its forces after a decade of fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. China views this as part of a strategy to contain its rise. To avoid misunderstandings, the U.S. has sought to boost exchanges with China’s

Ill. police: Teenager held 2 years escapes captors
WASHINGTON PARK, Ill. (AP) — A teen girl reported missing more than two years ago told police she escaped a home in southwestern Illinois where she had been held captive and repeatedly sexually assaulted. Authorities in Washington Park, a village next to East St. Louis, raided the house Thursday afternoon and took into custody a 24-year-old man and his mother. They also recovered the teen’s young child, which the girl said was the result of rape by her captor. Washington Park Police Chief David Clark said they believe the man’s mother aided the crimes. Police would not identify either of them by name because they had not been charged as of early Friday. About two dozen members of a SWAT team wearing helmets and body armor swarmed the home with assault rifles drawn. They recovered the child and arrested a man and his mother. One officer carried the child from the home, shielding the toddler with a sheet. The child was then taken away in an ambulance. Police in St. Louis, Mo.,

Cai is visiting U.S. Army bases in Texas, Missouri and Hawaii, as well as the Pentagon, in order to “see Army capabilities and discuss issues of mutual interest with senior military and defense leaders,” Pentagon spokeswoman Cathy Wilkinson said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. “Transparency and reciprocity are the foundation of a sustained, reliable and meaningful military-to-military relationship,” Wilkinson said. Cai’s visit follows one in May by Chinese Defense Minister Gen. Liang Guanglie. The State Department said the U.S. is taking a phased approach to missile defense in Asia, as it is in Europe and the Middle East. “These are defensive systems. They don’t engage unless missiles have been fired,” department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told a news conference. “In the case of Asian systems, they are designed against a missile threat from North Korea. They are not directed at China.” had listed the girl as a missing or runaway juvenile in April 2010. She was 15 when she disappeared. The teen told police she was held against her will and was beaten and sexually assaulted almost every day. She reported trying to escape several times but told police that her captor chased her down each time and forced her back to the home at gunpoint. She told police she was able to escape this week with the help of a relative. Police said the teen also told them she was forced by the man and his mother to give a false name in medical records during her pregnancy and when the child was born. A neighbor, Lakeitha Smith, told several local TV stations that she saw the girl from time to time outside the house and never witnessed anything that would raise concern. “I used to see her come out of the house, back and forth,” Smith said. “I didn’t think she was being held hostage in the house.”

Ohio may house exotic animals
By ANN SANNER The Associated Press COLUMBUS — Ohio officials want to build a state facility that would temporarily house potentially dozens of exotic animals confiscated under a new law that’s about to take effect.

— Erica Pitchford, Ohio Dept. of Agriculture at multiple other options, including sending the animals to zoos, sanctuaries or other wildlife areas. All ideas were all rejected in a favor of a single facility, Pitchford said. That way, the state could minimize transportation and the chance that something would go wrong with the animals. Plus, Pitchford said, the agency also wanted to take advantage of the expertise that had on site to care for the animals. “At least if they are here, they are being looked after properly,” she said. The building is being designed so that it can be converted to other uses, once the state no longer needs the housing for the animals. Additional details, such as the structure’s dimensions, are still being worked out and reviewed by the state’s architect. Pitchford noted the state intends to meet the same caging standards it’s requiring of owners under the new law. Cages and secured fenc-

ing isn’t cheap, Pitchford acknowledged. “And we’re not going to skirt on this.” Officials plan to submit their request for funding to the state’s Controlling Board today. Ohio’s restrictions on exotic pets have been among the nation’s weakest. Efforts to strengthen the law took on new urgency after owner Terry Thompson released 50 animals, including black bears, mountain lions and Bengal tigers, from his eastern Ohio farm in Zanesville in October, then committed suicide. Authorities killed 48 of the animals as a public safety measure. Two others were believed to have been eaten by other animals. The new law, which takes effect on Sept. 3, will immediately ban people from buying new dangerous exotic animals, such as cheetahs and crocodiles. Current owners could keep their creatures by obtaining a new state-issued permit by 2014. They would have to pass a background check, pay permit fees, obtain liability insurance and show inspectors that they can properly contain the animal and adhere to other standards. Ohio officials can seize the animals if owners don’t meet the state’s requirements or are found housing an animal without a permit. Within 60 days after the bill’s effective date, owners would have to have microchips implanted in their dangerous wildlife and register the animals. They also will have to tell the state where the animals are, how many they have, what the creatures look like and who their veterinarian is, among other details.

General: Ramadan factor in Afghan insider attacks
By ROBERT BURNS AP National Security Writer WASHINGTON — American and Afghan officials are expanding the range of explanations for a surge in “insider attacks” on U.S. troops, adding on Wednesday the theory that the burden of fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan combined with the summer heat may have prompted more Afghan soldiers and police to turn their guns on their American partners. Whatever the underlying reasons, the attacks are taking a toll and raising questions about the risk of American and other coalition troops working side by side with Afghan troops as advisers, mentors and trainers. The close contact is an essential element of the U.S. strategy for putting the Afghans in the lead combat role as the U.S. prepares to pull out its last combat troops at the end of 2014. The top commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan, Marine Gen. John R. Allen, said Thursday that while the reasons for the killings are not fully understood, the effect of Ramadan fasting is likely among the causes. “The idea that they will fast during the day places great strain on them,” Allen By KIMBERLY DOZIER AP Intelligence Writer said, adding that the stress may have been compounded by Ramadan falling during the heat of summer and the height of the fighting season. He acknowledged that hunger and heat are not the primary causes for the killings, but it is among many “different and complex reasons for why we think this may have increased” lately. He also cited Taliban infiltration of Afghan security forces and personal Afghan grievances against U.S. troops, who Afghans have in some cases accused of being brutish and insensitive to local culture and customs. Insider attacks have been a problem for the U.S.-led military coalition for years, but it has exploded recently into a crisis. There have been at least 32 attacks so far this year, killing 40 coalition members, mostly Americans. Last year there were 21 attacks, killing 35; and in 2010 there were 11 attacks with 20 deaths. August has been especially worrisome, with at least 10 insider attacks by Afghans, killing 10 Americans. And they have happened across the country; in the far western province of Farah on Aug. 17, killing two members of a Marine special operations unit; in the southwestern province of Helmand on Aug. 10, killing a total of six Marines in two separate shootings, and in the eastern province

Romney adviser leading lawsuit against WH
WASHINGTON (AP) — An informal adviser to Republican Mitt Romney is representing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees suing the Obama administration over its plan to stop deporting many young illegal immigrants and grant them work permits. Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, filed the lawsuit on behalf of 10 ICE employees Thursday in federal court in Dallas. The 22-page filing contends that the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals plan violates federal law and forces ICE employees to break the law by not arresting certain illegal immigrants. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and ICE Director John Morton are named as defendants. “It places ICE agents in an untenable position where their political superiors are ordering them to violate federal law,” Kobach said. “If they follow federal law, they will be disciplined by their superiors.” Kobach, who also advised Arizona lawmakers on the state’s controversial immigration bill, said he is representing the employees as a private lawyer and not in his capacity as a Kansas state official. He wrote in the lawsuit that ICE agents have been ordered not to arrest illegal immigrants who claim to be eligible for the administration’s new deportation policy. Kobach also was a delegate to the platform committee for next week’s Republican National Convention. In June, Napolitano and President Barack Obama said that some illegal immigrants could avoid deportation and be granted a work permit for up to two years. Under the program, immigrants have to prove that they arrived in the United States before they turned 16, have been in the country for at least five years, are 30 or younger, are in school or have graduated or have served in the military may be eligible. They cannot have a criminal record or otherwise be considered a threat to public safety or national security. Matt Chandler, a DHS spokesman, said the department uses prosecutorial discretion to focus its efforts on arresting and deporting criminal immigrants, and the newest policy is in line with that effort. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services started accepting applications for the program on Aug. 15. Immigrants have to pay a $465 paperwork fee for the program. DHS officials have not said how many people might be eligible under the program, though the Pew Hispanic Center and others have estimated that about 1.7 million people could be covered. An internal DHS document obtained by The Associated Press shows that the government estimated receiving about 1.04 million applications in the program’s first year, with about 890,000 being immediately eligible. The document estimated that the program could cost between $467.7 million and $585.4 million. The department anticipated collecting about $484.2 million in fees.
SEAL who wrote bin Laden raid book identified
WASHINGTON — The Navy SEAL who wrote an account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden under a pseudonym was identified Thursday as Matt Bissonnette, who retired from the Navy last summer. Bissonnette was first identified by Fox News. One current and one former U.S. military official confirmed the name, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss military personnel matters. The book, “No Easy Day,” is scheduled to be released Sept. 11, with the author listed under the pseudonym of Mark Owen. Penguin Group (USA)’s Dutton imprint, the publisher, asked news organizations Thursday to withhold his identity. “Sharing the true story of his personal experience in ‘No Easy Day’ is a courageous act in the face of obvious risks to his personal security,” Dutton spokeswoman Christine Ball said in a statement. “That personal security is the sole reason the book is being published under a pseudonym.” Bissonnette also changed the names of the other SEALs By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer in the account, the publisher says. Efforts to locate Bissonnette for comment were unsuccessful. Special Operations Command spokesman Col. Tim Nye said the retired SEAL could be endangered by being identified, which could also expose those active-duty SEALs the author worked with in the killing of bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan last year. The book and the author’s name come out amid debate over the possible damage to U.S. national security by leaks in the media about top secret operations. Yet the book also comes at a time when special operations forces are prominently featured in the media as never before, even as the elite organizations demand secrecy. A rash of new books trumpet special operators’ exploits. For example, “American Sniper,” a bestseller by recently retired SEAL Chris Kyle, details his 150-plus kills of insurgents from 1999 to 2009. A handful of special operations advocacy groups have sprung up decrying leaks, but they identify themselves by name as former members of some of the elite units,
of Paktika on Aug. 7, killing one American. The latest was Sunday in Spin Boldak, in southern Kandahar province, where an Afghan police officer opened fire inside a police station, killing a U.S. soldier who was assigned as a police adviser. The Afghan government asserted on Wednesday that the attacks are the result of Afghan soldiers and police being brainwashed by agents of foreign intelligence services. Allen, speaking from Afghanistan to reporters in Washington, said he had yet to see evidence of that. “I’m looking forward to Afghanistan providing us with the intelligence that permits them to come to that conclusion so that we can understand how they’ve drawn that conclusion,” Allen said. Ramadan, during which observant Muslims forgo food and drink in daylight hours, is based on a lunar calendar and covers a slightly different period each year. Prior to its start this summer, U.S. officials made no mention, at least publicly, of its potential to raise the security risk for U.S. and other coalition troops working alongside their Afghan counterparts. Allen said U.S. officials took precautions during Ramadan and will review what adjustments should be made in the future. in an online campaign video that slams President Barack Obama for releasing details of the bin Laden raid. One of the advocacy groups is run by retired Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke, who prominently mentions his time years ago at SEAL Team 6, the top secret unit that carried out the bin Laden raid. Even Special Operations Command made an exception to its normal reticence with the media when it signed off on the movie “Act of Valor,” which followed active duty SEALs carrying out training exercises that were turned into what looked like real action scenes for the film. The author of “No Easy Day” is slated to appear in shadow in promotional interviews for the book, meant to conceal his identity. CBS News’ anchor Scott Pelley said Thursday evening that “60 Minutes” has interviewed the author and will air the interview on Sept. 9. The book is already listed as one of the top 10 books on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. Beyond the risk he faces now that his identity is known, he could also face legal trouble if the Pentagon determines that he disclosed classified information in the account.
Applications for US unemployment aid up slightly
WASHINGTON — The number of people seeking first-time unemployment benefits rose a slight 4,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 372,000, evidence that the job market’s recovery remains modest and uneven. The Labor Department said Thursday that the fourweek average, a less volatile measure, increased 3,750 to 368,000. Applications are a measure of the pace of layoffs. When they fall consistently below 375,000, it generally suggests hiring is strong enough to lower the unemployment rate. Applications have risen for two straight weeks. Some economists said that indicates that hiring in August may slow from July’s solid gain of 163,000 jobs. The increases “suggest ... that job growth continued in August, but at a slower rate than July’s pop,” said Jennifer Lee, an economist at BMO Capital Markets. “So job growth there shall be, but not strong enough.” Weak hiring may prompt the Federal Reserve to take more action to stimulate the economy, Lee said. At the Fed’s last meeting, policymakers signaled that they were moving closer to launching another round of bond-buying, according to minutes released Wednesday. The goal of more bond purchases would be to lower longer-term interest rates to encourage more borrowing and spending. Meanwhile, fewer people continue to receive benefits. The total fell to 5.6 million in the week that ended Aug. 4, the latest period for which figures are available. That’s down about 110,000 from the previous week. Some of that decline may have resulted from those out of work finding jobs. But many also likely exhausted all their benefits. The economy and job growth have been improving a bit after falling into a midyear slump, though neither is particularly strong. One area of improvement has been the housing market, which is slowly but steadily recovering. Sales of previously occupied homes rose 2.3 percent in July from June, the National Association of Realtors said Wednesday. Sales jumped more than 10
percent in the past year. Other recent reports have contributed to the picture of a healing industry. Home prices are rising nationwide. And builders are growing increasingly confident because they’re seeing more traffic from potential buyers. An index of builder confidence rose to its highest level in five years in August. Builders responded by applying for the largest number of building permits in nearly four years last month. They broke ground on slightly fewer new homes in July than in June. But that was after the number of housing starts had reached a 3 1/2year high in June. In another positive sign, Americans boosted their retail spending in July by the most in five months, the Commerce Department said last week. That suggests yet more confidence in the economy. And factory output rose in July for the second straight month, according to a report Wednesday from the Federal Reserve. That raised hopes that manufacturers were recovering from a slowdown in the early summer. A jump in auto production was a key reason for the increase.

Wurst family celebrates ancestry at reunion
The Waterworks Park in Delphos was the scene of a large family reunion for the descendants of Edward and Martha Wurst, who were married nearly 100 years ago. The event was planned by their grandchildren, Mike Wurst of Wapakoneta, and his cousin, Linda (Freiburger) Schulte, now of Columbus, The place of honor went to Rita (Wurst) Nesbitt, the last surviving daughter of Edward and Martha, and to their last surviving daughterin-law, Betty Ricker (wife of the late Rudy Wurst), both of Delphos. Some came from as far away as Illinois and Georgia to reconnect with their cous-
ins and other family members. A large picnic lunch was followed by exchanges of photographs, genealogical information and of course, e-mail addresses. Also shared were many stories about Wurst family ancestors: one told of how an ancestor in the 1840s may have been accidentally buried alive. Life with Edward and Martha in the “good ol’ days” was recalled with the help of many stories collected by Mike Wurst from his late father, Edward Wurst Jr. The reunion was such a success that planning for the next one was discussed as the sun was setting.

Lady Green use fast start to derail Wildcats
By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald firstname.lastname@example.org
OTTOVILLE — The Lady Wildcats of Delphos Jefferson traveled north up Route 66 to take on their neighbors, the Lady Green of Ottoville, in a Thursday night soccer match at the Ottoville Soccer Stadium. The Lady Green scored early and never looked back, coming away with a 7-1 win. The night started off wrong for the Lady Wildcats at the 37:24 mark when Lady Green senior Rachel Turnwald sent a corner kick towards the goal; in all the confusion in front of the net, a Wildcat defender headed the ball into her own net, giving the Lady Green a quick 1-0 lead. Nearly 30 seconds later, sophomore Haley Landwehr — using her quickness and ball control — sped by a Wildcat defender and gave the Lady Green their second goal of the night. Lady Green Head Coach Tim Kimmet has preached this year the importance of an early start for his team: “We’ve talked about this all year in that we want our girls to come out strong and I think we did that today. We want to make a strong presence at the beginning of games and that makes the game go a little bit easier as the game progresses.” Senior Rachel Beining started in goal for the Lady Green; however, Kimmet pulled her from the net, replaced her with junior Danielle Trenkamp, and the move paid off with Beining sending a shot that found its way into the back of the net to extend the lead to 3-0 at the 19:52 mark. The Lady Wildcats, led by first-year Head Coach Josiah Stober, kept fighting the last 20 minutes of the half and had several scoring attempts in the final five minutes that didn’t connect. Freshman Logan Hamilton — at the 5:10 mark — had the best look for the Wildcats but her shot sailed wide of the goal; at the 3:30 mark, the ball trickled into the net but was not allowed due to a offside penalty. Coach Kimmet was quick to acknowledge the effort of the Wildcats: “Jefferson had a very good defense and #12 (Corinne Metzger) was a very good sweeper for (them). I have to give Jefferson a lot of credit with a couple of new coaches this year and trying to make their program go.” Jefferson had four shots on-goal in the half compared to the Lady Green with three; however, the home team made good use of each attempt and led 3-0 at the break. The second half started very quickly for the Lady Green as Turnwald scored her second goal of the game at the 37:51 mark. Sophomore Lexie Wannemacher scored her first goal of the year at the 36:43 mark, making the score 5-0. Both goals were scored after some very unselfish passing from the Lady Green. Several times girls were open for a shot but looked for that one more pass that set the defense on their heels and made the shot on-goal closer and easier. The unselfish play and accurate passing of the Lady Green paid off again at the 19:43 mark with Landwehr directly a sharp pass to Turnwald, who sent a laser pass across the goal mouth only to find Beining, who headed it into the goal for her second goal of the evening and a 6-0 lead. When asked about his team’s unselfish play, Kimmet was quick to pass on his praise: “They are a very unselfish and talented group all around on this team. The girls have one goal in mind - get the ball where it needs
to be — and they know it’s not easy around here in girls soccer to score and you must take advantage of opportunities that arise throughout the game to come out ahead.” Beining completed her hat trick at the 16:44 mark when she sent a free kick for the Lady Green from the 30-yard line that eluded the Wildcat goalie — Paige Miller — for a 7-0 advantage. The only thing that could stop the senior Beining this night was at the 13:23 mark when she had to leave the game after a bug found her right eye and Coach Kimmet called it a night for his talented senior. The Wildcats again brought the pressure to the home team and finally broke the scoring ice as sophomore Bailey Miller found the back of the net, making the score 7-1. The visitors threatened a couple of more times in the final minutes but this night, the Lady Green just had too much offensive explosion. The Lady Wildcats (1-10) host Lima Central Catholic for a noon start Saturday. The Big Green (2-0-0) travel to Bryan for a tough contest on the road.

Mayberry’s hit lifts Phillies over Reds 4-3 in 11 innings
By ROB MAADDI The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Charlie Manuel sounded like a prize fighter who went the distance. And the Philadelphia manager didn’t even play. John Mayberry Jr. hit an RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning to lift the Phillies to a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday night. In a game that lasted 4 hours, 24 minutes, the Phillies squandered opportunities in the ninth and 10th before getting a key hit to split the 4-game set. They took over sole possession of third place in the NL East for the first time since April. “I feel like I was in a fight and I lost,” Manuel said. “I feel drained. I kept waiting for somebody to come home.” Todd Frazier drove in all three runs for the NL Centralleading Reds, who were seeking their first series win in Philadelphia since 2006. Kevin Frandsen led off the 11th with a single against Alfredo Simon (2-2), and Chase Utley followed with a double. After Ryan Howard was intentionally walked, Domonic Brown hit a bouncer to first that caused Frandsen to be forced out at home. Mayberry then grounded a single to left to end it. “The series was like playoff action,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. Raul Valdes (3-2) worked a scoreless 11th for the win. Philadelphia’s bullpen pitched five hitless innings. In a matchup between NL Cy Young Award contenders, neither Johnny Cueto nor Cole Hamels was sharp. Cueto was trying to become the first 17-game winner in the majors. The dreadlocked righty allowed two runs and five hits in 5-plus innings. Hamels gave up three runs and six hits in six innings. He remained unbeaten against the Reds. The lefty entered 8-0 with a 1.26 ERA in 10 previous starts, including a 5-hitter to finish off a sweep in the 2010 NL division series. J.J. Hoover pitched out of trouble in the ninth and 10th. Hoover retired Brown on a double-play grounder with the bases loaded to send the game to extra innings. After Jimmy Rollins hit a double to put runners on second and third with one out in the 10th, Hoover got Brian Schneider on a grounder to third and Juan Pierre on a popup to third. Down 3-2, the Phillies rallied in the eighth against relievers Sean Marshall and Sam LeCure. Brown, Mayberry and Erik Kratz hit consecutive 1-out singles to load the bases. Rollins then hit a shallow fly to left. Brown scored ahead of Ryan Ludwick’s off-target throw to tie it at 3. Despite bright skies, it rained hard in the first inning. The Reds loaded the bases with one out on two singles and a walk. Frazier drove in a run on a groundout to third for a 1-0 lead. Phillies shortstop Michael Martinez then saved a run with a spectacular, diving grab on Miguel Cairo’s grounder in the hole and made a strong throw to get the out and end the inning. Hamels seemed a bit perturbed by the downpour and asked the grounds crew to work on the mound during the inning. He also appeared upset that Frandsen didn’t throw home on Frazier’s bouncer, throwing his hands up in the air. The defense let Hamels down again in the sixth. After a leadoff single by Jay Bruce, Ludwick ripped a wicked 1-hopper to Martinez, who couldn’t handle the ball. It was ruled a hit, though it could’ve been a double-play grounder. Frazier followed with a double off the base of the wall in center and the ball bounced back through Laynce Nix’s legs. Two runs scored for a 3-0 lead and Frazier advanced to third on Nix’s error. The rain stopped by the second but the field was a little spongy for a few more innings. Phillies right-hander Phillippe Aumont, acquired from Seattle in the original Cliff Lee trade in December 2009, pitched a scoreless eighth in his major-league debut.

NOTES: Cueto leads the NL with 12 hit batters. ... Reds C Devin Mesoraco was reinstated from the suspended list and sent to Triple-A Louisville. ... Frazier has an 8-game hitting streak. ... The Reds return home to open a 3-game set against St. Louis. Mat Latos (10-3) starts today. CARDINALS 13, ASTROS 5 ST. LOUIS — David Freese’s 3-run homer snapped the Cardinals’ 7-game longball drought and St. Louis beat Houston to complete a 3-game sweep. Freese and Matt Holliday each had four RBIs and Allen Craig had three hits and three RBIs. The Cardinals shrugged aside a 4-0, fourth-inning deficit and sent Houston to its seventh straight loss. The Astros are 0-4 while getting outscored 32-8 since interim manager Tony DeFrancesco replaced Brad Mills as leader of the stripped-down roster. Houston has won just seven of its last 50 overall. The Astros were swept for the third time this month and 12th overall. Holliday’s 3-run double in the fifth was the go-ahead blow. Astros rookie Dallas Keuchel (1-6) was charged with five earned runs in 4-plus innings. Jake Westbrook (13-9) won for the fourth time in five starts. The Cardinals totaled 17 hits and were 10-for-14 with runners in scoring position. ROCKIES 1, METS 0 NEW YORK — Collin McHugh pitched 2-hit ball over seven scoreless innings for New York in his major-league debut but Colorado completed its second straight 4-game sweep at Citi Field. Rookie centerfielder Jordany Valdespin misplayed Tyler Colvin’s leadoff drive in the eighth into a game-changing triple. Chris Nelson hit an RBI single through the drawnin infield. The last-place Rockies tied a season high with their fifth straight win and completed their second 4-game sweep in two years at Citi Field. McHugh pitched masterfully in place of injured Johan Santana with nine strikeouts and one walk.
But after he left, the Rockies broke through quickly against Bobby Parnell (2-3). Rex Brothers (8-2) pitched two innings for the win. Matt Belisle, Colorado’s fifth pitcher, got his first save since June 22, 2010. The punchless Mets went 0-for10 with runners in scoring position and were held to two runs or fewer for the sixth straight game, the first time that’s happened since a streak of seven in a row in September 1982, according to STATS LLC. The Mets dropped to 11-28 since the All-Star break, which includes a 2-14 mark at home. GIANTS 5, BRAVES 2 SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Zito took a 3-hit shutout into the ninth inning and Hector Sanchez’s 2-run double highlighted a 4-run fifth for San Francisco in its fourth straight win. Fresh off a sweep at Los Angeles, the NL West leaders won behind Zito (10-8), who allowed five hits, struck out five and walked three before Freddie Freeman’s 2-run double off reliever Jeremy Affeldt broke up the shutout. With two runners on, Sergio Romo got pinch-hitters Jason Heyward and Juan Francisco to ground out for his sixth save. Hunter Pence, Brandon Belt and Pablo Sandoval all drove in runs to chase Atlanta starter Tommy Hanson (12-6) after 4 1/3 innings. Hanson gave up five hits and five runs while striking out four and walking three. San Francisco has won 9-of-12 to take a 3-game lead over the Dodgers in the division. AL Capsules ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Alex Cobb pitched a 4-hitter for his first major-league shutout and the surging Tampa Bay Rays beat the Oakland Athletics 5-0 on Thursday night to pull within 2 1/2 games of the first-place New York Yankees in the AL East. Matt Joyce hit a 2-run double in a 5-run fifth inning against Tyson Ross (2-9), hastily called up from the minors to pitch in place of suspended Oakland starter Bartolo Colon. Cobb (8-8) struck out eight and walked two in his second career complete game, both this season. He bounced back from a poor outing against the Los Angeles Angels to win for the fourth time in five starts. It was the 14th victory in 17 games for the Rays and their seventh shutout since July 19. It’s the closest they’ve been to first place since they were 2 1/2 out before games of June 16. Oakland dropped into a tie with Baltimore and Detroit for the AL’s second wild-card spot, 2 1/2 games behind the Rays. ANGELS 14, RED SOX 13, 10 innings BOSTON — Kendrys Morales led off Los Angeles’ 2-run 10th inning with a solo homer and the Angels completed a 3-game sweep of Boston by outlasting the Red Sox. The Red Sox wasted a 6-0 lead, then rallied from deficits of 8-7 in the sixth and 12-11 in the ninth. But closer Alfredo Aceves struggled after Boston was one out away from victory in the ninth. Aceves (2-8) gave up five runs and six hits in one inning and the Red Sox lost for the 11th time in 15 games. Ernesto Frieri (2-0) got the win after giving up a tying solo homer in the ninth to Cody Ross, his 19th of the season, and an RBI single in the 10th to Dustin Pedroia, who drove in five runs. Frieri was charged with a blown save but secured the win when he struck out Adrian Gonzalez to end the 4-hour, 34-minute game. With the score tied at 12, Morales jumped on an 0-1 pitch from Aceves for his 16th homer — just over the low right-field fence. Erick Aybar followed with a single, knocking out Aceves. Vernon Wells hit an RBI double off Craig Breslow for the final run. The Angels remained five games behind the Rays and closed to within 3 1/2 games of Baltimore in the race for the AL’s two wild-card spots. Los Angeles starter C.J. Wilson, 0-5 in his last 11 starts, struggled again. The Red Sox took a 6-0 lead in the second inning.

WAPAKONETA — St. John’s opened its girls soccer season Tuesday night with a 9-0 loss to perennial power St. Marys Memorial, so head coach John Munoz was looking to see how his Lady Blue Jays — with over half of his 25-girl roster playing the sport either for the first time ever or for the first time since their grade school days — would respond Thursday night at Wapakoneta versus the WBL Redskins. They were a lot more competitive this night out but the Lady Redskins’ experience paid off with a 2-0 victory at Ryan Field. “We had some jitters in the opener and those are gone now. Things were a lot better today,” Munoz said. “Sometimes in soccer, you have to slow things down; we did that today. We were better with our possession and our passing; those were two things that improved dramatically. Those helped us open up the field a lot better and we could get more and better shots at the goal.” The stats showed how close this matchup really was: the Lady Jays (0-2-0) had 15 shots (11 ongoal) versus Redskin sophomore keeper Sara Foor (6 saves) versus Wapak’s 14 shots (11 on-goal) against Blue Jay sophomore netminder Samantha Wehri (9 saves). The Jays had the first real opening at 36:10 of the first half as junior Madison Kreeger got a 15-yard look from the right wing that just missed over the crossbar. The Redskins had their first good look at 31:50 as sophomore Sara Warner — who would be a thorn in the Blue and Gold’s side all night long — took a 15-yarder that Wehri stopped. However, Warner drew first blood for the hosts just 1:18 later. On a steal near midfield, she took a run down the left post line; as Wehri came out to try and cut off the angle, Warner slid a 15-yarder just under her diving try into the right side of the net for a 1-0 lead. From then on, it was a back and forth, mostly even,
first half. The visitors had a few more opportunities at the goal than their foe, especially with Kreeger and senior Jessica Recker providing the spark, while the defense — with the likes of seniors Morgan Musser, Riley Hamilton and Brittany Kramer and juniors Lindsay Warnecke and Jessica Koverman and sophomore Alyssa Martin — did a nice job of containing the speed of the Redskins up front. The best chances for the guests came at 17:50, when Kreeger had an angled try from 15 yards on the right wing go just over the top; and at 2:47, when Kreeger received a cross pass from Recker from the right side and was on the doorstep of the left post but couldn’t get control quite well enough to find the back of the net, missing just wide left. Wapak had two chances: at 19:01 and 7:45; that Wehri snuffed out before the hosts could get a shot off. The hosts — with their greater experience in the sport showing — had a few more chances in the second half — especially Warner, sophomore Kylee Dahman and freshman Brianna Pequignot — but Wehri was up to the challenge, either snuffing out opportunities before they happened or making stops. It was the Jays that had a great chance to score the equalizer at 38:40 off a corner kick from the right side. Hamilton was open in the middle in front of the net and her 6-yard header was denied by Dahman — who was stationed on the goal line — and Koverman tried to follow from nine yards but missed over the bar. At 6:04, Recker came close to tying the game but her 17-yard laser from the right wing just missed over the top. Finally, with the Jays clearly tiring, Warner got her second goal. Off a corner kick from the left side, the Jays failed to clear the fall and Warner got an open look from in front, finding the right side of the cords for a 2-0 edge. “We were much better overall; I was very pleased. The two goals we gave up weren’t glaring defensive mistakes but minor ones; those are the ones that cost you in the end,” Munoz added. “Wapak is another extremely talented team and program and they are very physical; we had to adjust and match that physicality and we did. We are still moving people around but we’re finding the right spots for them; this team will get nothing but better.” The junior varsity contest (1 36-minute half) ended in a scoreless draw. The Jays are 0-1-1. The Jays finish the opening week of the season against another perennial power, Fort Jennings, at 11 a.m. Saturday. (See ROUNDUP page 7)

Armstrong facing loss of 7 Tour de France titles
By JIM VERTUNO The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas — Never one to back away from a fight, Lance Armstrong is finally giving in and the cost of quitting is steep: his seven Tour de France titles could be gone as soon as today. The superstar cyclist, whose stirring victories after his comeback from cancer helped him transcend sports, chose not to pursue arbitration in the drug case brought against him by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. That was his last option in his bitter fight with USADA and his decision set the stage for the titles to be stripped and his name to be all but wiped from the record books of the sport he once ruled. Travis Tygart, USADA’s chief executive, left no doubt that was the next step. He said Armstrong would lose the titles as soon as today and be hit with a lifetime ban, even though he is retired and turning 41 next month. Tygart added the UCI, the sport’s governing body, was “bound to recognize our decision and impose it as a signer of the World Anti-Doping Code. They have no choice but to strip the titles under the code.” Today, the International Cycling Union replied not so fast. The UCI, which had backed Armstrong’s legal challenge to USADA’s authority, cited the same World AntiDoping Code in saying that it wanted the USADA to explain why Armstrong should lose his titles. The UCI said the code requires this in cases “where no hearing occurs.” Armstrong clearly knew his legacy would be blemished by his decision. He said he has grown tired of defending himself in a seemingly neverending fight against charges that he doped while piling up more Tour victories than anyone ever. He has consistently pointed to the hundreds of drug tests that he passed as proof of his innocence during his extraordinary run of Tour titles from 1999 to 2005. “There comes a point in every man’s life when he has to say, ‘Enough is enough.’ For me, that time is now,” Armstrong said Thursday night, hours before the deadline to enter arbitration. He called the USADA investigation an “unconstitutional witch hunt.” “I have been dealing with claims that I cheated and had an unfair advantage in winning my seven Tours since 1999,” he continued. “The toll this has taken on my family and my work for our foundation and on me leads me to where I am today — finished with this nonsense.” a positive drug test. Landis’ e-mails to a USA Cycling official detailed allegations of a complex doping program on the team. USADA also claimed it had 10 former Armstrong teammates ready to testify against him. Other than suggesting they include Landis and Tyler Hamilton, both of whom have admitted to doping offenses, the agency has refused to say who they are or specifically what they would say. USADA maintains that Armstrong used banned substances as far back as 1996, including the blood-booster EPO and steroids, as well as blood transfusions. Armstrong sued USADA in Austin, Texas, where he lives, in an attempt to block the case and was supported by the UCI. A judge threw out the case on Monday, siding with USADA despite questioning the agency’s pursuit of Armstrong in his retirement. The ultra-competitive Armstrong still had the option to press his innocence in arbitration, which would have included a hearing during which evidence against him would have been presented. But the cyclist has said he believes most people have already made up their minds about whether he’s a fraud or a persecuted hero. And so he did something virtually unthinkable for him: he quit before a fight was over, a stunning move for an athlete who built his reputation on not only beating cancer but forcing himself through grueling offseason workouts no one else could match, then crushing his rivals in the Alps and the Pyrenees. Although he had already been crowned a world champion and won individual stages at the Tour de France, Armstrong was still relatively unknown in the U.S. until he won the epic race for the first time in 1999. It was the ultimate comeback tale: when diagnosed with cancer, doctors had given him less than a 50 percent chance of survival before surgery and brutal cycles of chemotherapy saved his life. Armstrong’s riveting victories, his work for cancer awareness and his gossip-page romances with rocker Sheryl Crow, fashion designer Tory Burch and actress Kate Hudson made him a figure who transcended sports. His dominance of the Tour de France elevated the sport’s popularity in the U.S. to unprecedented levels. His story and success helped sell millions of the “Livestrong” plastic yellow wrist bracelets and enabled him to enlist lawmakers and global policymakers to promote cancer awareness and research. His Lance Armstrong Foundation has raised nearly $500 million since its founding in 1997.

USADA treated Armstrong’s decision as an admission of guilt, hanging the label of drug cheat on an athlete who was a hero to thousands for overcoming life-threatening testicular cancer and for his foundation’s support for cancer research. Armstrong could lose other awards, event titles and cash earnings; the International Olympic Committee might look at the bronze medal he won in the 2000 Games. “It is a sad day for all of us who love sport and athletes,” Tygart said. “It’s a heartbreaking example of win-at-all-costs overtaking the fair and safe option. There’s no success in cheating to win.” Johan Bruyneel, Armstrong’s longtime coach, wrote on his personal website today the Texan is a victim of a legal process run amok. “Lance has never withdrawn from a fair fight in his life, so his decision today underlines what an unjust process this has been,” Bruyneel wrote. While Tygart said the agency can strip the Tour titles, Armstrong disputed that, insisting his decision is not an admission of guilt but a refusal to enter an arbitration process he believes is unfair. Armstrong’s comments notwithstanding, USADA has exercised its power to sanction athletes and strip their results regularly. Its website shows that it has issued 21 sanctions in 2012 so far in sports ranging from cycling to track to boxing to judo, with 17 of the athletes losing their results. Armstrong walked away from the sport for good in 2011 without being charged following a 2-year federal criminal investigation into many of the same accusations he faces from USADA. The federal probe was closed in February but USADA announced in June it had evidence Armstrong used banned substances and methods — and encouraged their use by teammates. The agency also claimed it had blood tests from 2009-10 that were “fully consistent” with blood doping. Included in USADA’s evidence were e-mails written by Armstrong’s former U.S. Postal Service teammate Floyd Landis, who was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France title after
Jeffery C. Gervey, chairman of the foundation, issued a statement of support. Questions surfaced even as Armstrong was on his way to his first Tour victory. He was leading the 1999 race when a trace amount of a banned antiinflammatory corticosteroid was found in his urine; cycling officials said he was authorized to use a small amount of a cream to treat saddle sores. After Armstrong’s second victory in 2000, French judicial officials investigated his Postal Service team for drug use. That investigation ended with no charges but the allegations kept coming. Others close to Armstrong were caught up in the investigations, too: Bruyneel, the coach of Armstrong’s teams, and three members of the medical staff and a consultant were also charged. Bruyneel is taking his case to arbitration, while two medical team staffers and consulting doctor Michele Ferrari didn’t formally contest the charges and were issued lifetime bans by USADA. Ferrari later claimed he was innocent. Armstrong was criticized for his relationship with Ferrari, who was banned by Italian authorities over doping charges in 2002. Former personal and team assistants accused Armstrong of having steroids in an apartment in Spain and disposing of syringes that were used for injections. In 2004, a Dallas-based promotions company initially refused to pay him a $5 million bonus for winning his sixth Tour de France because it wanted to investigate allegations raised by media in Europe. Testimony in that case included former teammate Frankie Andreu and his wife, Betsy, saying Armstrong told doctors during his 1996 cancer treatments that he had taken a cornucopia of steroids and performance-enhancing drugs. Two books published in Europe, “L.A. Confidential” and “L.A. Official,” also raised doping allegations and, in 2005, French magazine L’Equipe reported that retested urine samples from the 1999 Tour showed EPO use. Armstrong fought every accusation with denials and, in some cases, lawsuits against media outlets that reported them. He retired in 2005 and almost immediately considered a comeback before deciding to stay on the sidelines — in part because he didn’t want to keep answering doping questions. Three years later, Armstrong was 36 and itching to ride again. He came back to finish third in the 2009 Tour de France. Armstrong raced again in 2010 under the cloud of the federal investigation. Early last year, he quit for good, making a brief return as a triathlete until the USADA investigation shut him down.
Musketeer boys open on winning note ELIDA — The Fort Jennings boys soccer team began 2012 on a winning note, beating Spencerville 3-0 at the Elida Fall Soccer Classic at the Elida Athletic Complex Thursday night. The Musketeers will battle Bluffton, a 1-0 victor over the host Bulldogs in the other semifinal, at 7 p.m. Saturday. The Bearcats and Bulldogs match up at 5 p.m. Saturday. Van Wert Times Bulletin PAYNE – Tournament medalist Grady Gudakunst shot a 34 to lead the Wayne Trace boys golf team to the championship of its own invitational Thursday afternoon at Pleasant Valley Golf Course. The Raiders carded a 148 as a team to easily defeat second place Miller City’s 170 on the day. Antwerp (180), Fort Jennings (181) and Lincolnview (181) rounded out the top five teams. “We played very well,” noted Raider head coach Chris Rosswurm following the impressive performance by his squad.

Derek Langmeyer posted a 44 for Wayne Trace. “This was our first goal; to win our own invitational,” Rosswurm continued. “This was one of the things we set out to do at the start of the season.” Jared Fuka paced Miller City with a 38 and Austin Lammers added a 39 for the Wildcats. Eric Miesle was the low Antwerp golfer with a 42 and Jess Wilson chipped in a 44. “We’ve been able to get off to a pretty good start this year,” noted the Raider head coach. “I’ve been pretty pleased with the way we’ve played for the most part.” Fort Jennings and Lincolnview each shot a 181 as a team with the Musketeers finishing fourth on the fifthperson tie-breaker. Kurt Warnecke led the Musketeers with a 40 and Lucas Luebrecht added a 46. Nate German chipped in a 47 for the orange and black followed by Josh Wittler (48), Alex Ketcham (53) and Brett Clay (53).

Roughriders shut out Bulldogs on the hard courts ST. MARYS — The St. Marys Memorial girls tennis team handed invading Elida a 5-0 Western Buckeye League loss Thursday afternoon in St. Marys. Katie Peterson bested
played before a typical large and vocal contingent of Cougar fans. The only fast match was at second singles where Cougar senior Paige Dunlap ran Wildcat senior Amanda Freshcorn constantly from side to side to win it 6-0, 6-0. Dunlap is now 2-2. That made the team score 1-0, Cougs. Van Wert’s first singles player, Katie Etter, topped Kenton senior Danyel Heilman 6-2, 6-1, but it wasn’t nearly as easy as those scores would indicate. The pesky Heilman made Etter work hard for every point but the Cougar had too much game. Etter is 2-2 on the season. Her win put Van Wert up 2-0. The second doubles team of freshman Ali Moreland and junior Sydney Dull then wrapped up the team win with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over the Kenton duo of sophomore Brianna Alexander and junior Emilee Marr. The Moreland/ Dull team is now 3-1. It took the first doubles team of junior Claire Butler and senior Tracy Nguyen almost two hours to do it but they topped Wildcat senior Haley Jones and junior Kendra Tidd 6-4, 6-4 to get
their first win of the season. They’re now 1-3. By far the longest match was at third singles. Cougar senior Rachel Chen nearly duplicated her performance two days earlier against Lima Central Catholic by dropping the first set 6-2 to Kenton’s human ball retriever, freshman Claire Oates, before staying alive by winning a 7-5 tie-breaker in the second set. Oates, who played a virtually flawless first set, began to make some unforced errors in the second. Chen dominated the third set 6-0. The match lasted two and a half hours. Chen is now 2-2. “The first doubles -they’ve been close so far this early in the year but it’s good to see them win,” said Van Wert coach Mitch Price. “They needed it for their confidence -- that’s for sure. We have a lot of heart on this team. It takes the whole team, and when you win 5-0 -- that’s a team effort. “I tell you what -- I give Kenton a lot of credit. They’re getting better. I think they’ve got the coaches that can get them there. I remember we were there once.” Van Wert is in the Lima Invitational 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
Summary: 1st singles: Katie Etter (VW) over Danyel Heilman (K) 6-2, 6-1. 2nd singles: Paige Dunlap (VW) over Amanda Freshcorn (K) 6-0, 6-0. 3rd singles: Rachel Chen (VW) over Claire Oates (K) 2-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-0. 1st doubles: Claire Butler/Tracy Nguyen (VW) over Haley Jones/ Kendra Tidd (K) 6-4, 6-4. 2nd doubles: Ali Moreland/ Sydney Dull (VW) over Brianna Alexander/Emilee Marr (K) 6-3, 6-2.

The Herald – 9
SATURDAY, AUGUST 25, 2012 Your career could take a substantial leap forward in the year ahead as a result of your new way of dealing with people. This wisdom will be utilized in ways that bring you much growth and development in your chosen field of endeavor. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A friend who believes that you will keep in confidence what she or he tells you is likely to entrust you with a secret. It’s imperative that you honor this trust. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -There is a chance you can learn more from a friend than you can from books. When speaking to a close pal whose ideas you respect, do more listening than talking. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You’ll first have to define what you want if you hope to achieve your aims. Don’t be afraid to speak up, because once you start talking, the right words will be there. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Friends are happy to help you at this time, but they first must understand what you want from them. Promote your cause the same way you’d market a product. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your ability to research and discover things is extremely effective. Properly applied, you can get past the obvious and find the facts that lie beneath the surface. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Discussion should precede all action you take, especially anything that would directly affect another. Once a mutual agreement is achieved, make your move. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Your chances for fulfilling an ambitious objective are excellent at this time. This is because you’ll know how to logically and effectively utilize any development. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A sincere interest in learning more about someone you recently met will do a lot to further the relationship. It could awaken in the other party an equally strong interest in you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -If a family problem is discussed with all parties, it can be worked out to everybody’s satisfaction. Be the one who puts the meeting together, and don’t leave anybody out. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Tell it like it is if an old pal comes to you for advice today. Chances are you’ll have a lot to say that could be constructive and would be extremely helpful to your friend. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your financial prospects look extremely encouraging, provided your aspirations don’t exceed your grasp. If you are content with small gains, there could be quite a few in the making. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If your ears are ringing, chances are you are the topic of conversation among your friends. Not to worry, however -- if you could hear what they’re saying, you’d be pleased.

Prosecutors: Colo. suspect angry over academics
By P. SOLOMON BANDA Associated Press CENTENNIAL, Colorado — James Holmes was a promising neuroscience doctoral candidate, but by the end of the program’s first year, he had fallen out of favor with professors and failed a key exam, prosecutors said. Details of his behavior before he became a suspect in a suburban Denver theater shooting were not released. But it raised enough concerns for campus police to run a background check on Holmes, although University of Colorado spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery declined to elaborate on the reason Thursday. Prosecutors went before a judge Thursday to seek the school’s records on Holmes, including his application, grades and course schedules, and anything concerning his termination or withdrawal from the school in June. He had failed an oral board exam on June 7, then withHUSSEIN MALLA Associated Press drew from the school three days later. Holmes faces charges in a July 20 shooting during the new Batman movie that left 12 dead and 58 others wounded. “What’s going on in the defendant’s life at the time is extremely relevant to this case,” Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Pearson said of their need for the documents. Holmes’ defense lawyer, Daniel King, has said Holmes is mentally ill, setting up a possible insanity defense. But Pearson’s arguments Thursday revealed a possible motive: Holmes’ anger that he was failing at school, “at the same time he’s buying an enormous amount of ammunition, body armor and explosives.” A gag order has been issued in the case. Prosecutors argued that gaining access to the school records would establish a motive by showing what Holmes hoped to accomplish at CU and the “dissatisfaction with what occurred in his life that led to this.” They also want to see records from campus police and a campus threat evaluation team similar to those established across the country after the 2007 Virginia Tech University shootings. Pearson said that professors had sought to keep Holmes out of their labs and that “professors urged that he find another line of business.” University officials said Holmes lost access to university buildings after his withdrawal because his student access card was shut off, not because of threats. King objected to the release of the records, arguing that the prosecutors’ request for documents amounted to a “fishing expedition that needs to be stopped.” In addition to the school records, prosecutors have sought access to a notebook that Holmes reportedly sent to university psychiatrist Lynne Fenton. King claims that Holmes had sought out Fenton for help with his mental illness.

Syria spillover clashes escalate in Lebanon
TRIPOLI, Beirut — Fresh clashes broke out today in northern Lebanon between supporters and opponents of the Syrian regime, killing two people and wounding 17 others, Lebanese security officials said. The fighting in the port city of Tripoli was the latest instance of the Syrian civil war causing unrest next door in Lebanon, a country long under Syrian influence. In Syria itself, fighting raged today between government forces and rebels close to the capital. The British-based Observatory for Human Rights said troops pursued rebels in the town of Daraya, just south of Damascus, the scene of heavy fighting over the last two days. Fifteen people died today, most of them from injuries suffered in battles the day before, said the group, which relies on a network of activists on the ground. Residents of Damascus reporting hearing loud explosions as shells fired from the Qasioun mountains overlooking the capital slammed into Daraya and the nearby suburb of Moadimiyeh. Human rights groups say more than 20,000 people have died since the Syrian uprising against President Bashar Assad erupted in March 2011. The bloodshed in Syria has drawn neighboring Lebanon deeper into the unrest — a troubling sign for a country that suffered its own 15-year civil war from 1975 to 1990 and has an explosive sectarian mix of Sunni and Shiite Muslims, Christians and Palestinian refugees, as well as deep divisions between pro- and anti-Syrian factions. Syria was in virtual control of its smaller neighbor for many years, posting tens
Pearson said prosecutors must establish whether Holmes was her patient, a relationship that would make it more difficult to access the notebook’s contents. Fenton is expected to testify on Aug. 30. School records don’t have the same legal protection as communication between a doctor and patient. Records released by the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, a school Holmes considered attending, contained a letter of recommendation that said Holmes has “a great amount of intellectual and emotional maturity.” The dive in Holmes’ academic performance could be a possible motive, one legal observer said. “That’s the kind of thing that is classic motivation for a murderer and doesn’t support insanity,” said Craig Silverman, a criminal defense attorney and former Denver prosecutor. Holmes’ family members who attended the hearing Thursday declined to comment.
of thousands of troops in Lebanon, before withdrawing under pressure in 2005. Even without soldiers on the ground, Syria remains influential, and its civil war has stirred longstanding tensions that have lain under Lebanon’s surface. The clashes of the past few days in Tripoli represent some of the most serious fighting in Lebanon in several months. The mostly Sunni city weathered gunbattles in May, when fighting over Syria killed eight people. In the latest clashes, gunmen from the Sunni neighborhood of Jabal Mohsen battled armed elements from the neighboring district of Bab Tabbaneh, which is populated mostly by followers of the Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam. Assad comes from Syria’s Alawite minority, while rebels fighting his regime are mostly Sunnis.

with America’s entrance into World War II. During this time, all museum thoughts were put on hold as all resources went to the war efforts. As the Axis powers fell, the museum starting taking a front seat again and in 1956, the building was dedicated to the county. “The museum was dedicated for the people of the community. It is for them and it is the historical society’s task to take care of it,” said Smith. Over the years, the museum has grown even bigger. There was an addition added in 1976 in concordance with the nation’s bicentennial and in the last 10 years, there have been two more additions to the campus. The campus is also home to the MacDonell House. The MacDonell House is one of only two surviving mansions that were the result of a large growth of wealthy homes built in the late 19th century due to the Oil Boom of the time. This area of homes were known as the “Golden Block”. The MacDonell House is just one highlight of many at the museum. A prized artifact is the Shay locomotive which was donated to the Historical Society in the early 1950s. The locomotive was used by the Lima Stone Company and was built in 1925. In the vein of locomotives, the museum is also home to one of the largest and most comprehensive railroad archives in the United States. The John H. Keller Railroad
Archives is full of renderings, photos and other collections from near and far including New York Central and Lima Locomotive Works. “A lot of people come from all over to see the railroad archives. A lot of the archives pertain to the steam era and some after,” says Smith. The museum has attractions that are tailored for children, as well. For example, there is the Children’s Discovery Center that entertains and educates children as well as the families that accompany them. The children’s center provides youth with ways to get engrossed with history in a hands-on manor. On campus is also the Children’s Garden, which is full of displays, multiple themes, gorgeous landscapes and more. The museum is a major beneficiary of volunteers. Through volunteers and donations the museum keeps its doors open and sees growth. There is a suggested donation of $5 for admission but there is no mandatory entrance fee. The museum is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The museum is open to group tours and sees a lot of field trips pass through its doors. Whether it be school children, train enthusiast, history buffs, or even just curious citizens from the tri-county area, the museum has something to offer to everyone who has an appreciation of history and the stories it has to tell.
