50 daily By LISA CORNWELL and SETH BORENSTEIN The Associated Press CINCINNATI Neil Armstrong made one giant leap for mankind with a small step onto the moon. He commanded the historic landing of the Apollo 11 spacecraft on the moon July 20, 1969, capping the most daring of the 20th centurys scientific expeditions and becoming the first man to walk on the moon. His first words after the feat are etched in history books and the memories of the spellbound millions who heard them in a live broadcast. Thats one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind, Armstrong said. He insisted later that he had said a before man, but said he, too, couldnt hear it in the version that went to the world. Armstrong, who had bypass surgery earlier this month, died Saturday at age 82 from what his family said were complications of heart procedures. His family didnt say where he died; he had lived in suburban Cincinnati. He was a reluctant American hero who always believed he was just doing his job, his family said in a statement. The moonwalk marked Americas victory in the Cold War space race that began Oct. 4, 1957, with the launch of the Soviet Unions Sputnik 1, a 184-pound satellite that sent shock waves around the world. The accomplishment fulfilled a commitment President John F. Kennedy made for the nation to put a man on the moon before the end of 1960s. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the lunar surface, collecting samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs. The sights were simply magnificent, beyond any visual experience that I had ever been exposed to, Armstrong once said. In those first few moments on the moon, Armstrong stopped in what he called a tender moment and left a patch

in the accomplishments of my profession. Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley, who interviewed Armstrong for NASAs oral history project, said Armstrong fit every requirement the space agency needed for the first man to walk on moon, especially because of his engineering skills and the way he handled celebrity by shunning it. I think his genius was in his reclusiveness, said Brinkley. He was the ultimate hero in an era of corruptible men. Fellow Ohioan and astronaut John Glenn, one of Armstrongs closest friends, recalled Saturday how Armstrong was on low fuel when he finally brought the lunar module Eagle down on the Sea of Tranquility. That showed a dedication to what he was doing that was admirable, Glenn said. A man who kept away from cameras, Armstrong went public in 2010 with his concerns about President Barack Obamas space policy that shifted attention away from a

Armstrong to commemorate NASA astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts who had died in action. Although he had been a Navy fighter pilot, a test pilot for NASAs forerunner and an astronaut, the modest Armstrong never allowed himself to be caught up in the celebrity and glamour of the space program. I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer, he said in 2000 in one of his rare public appearances. And I take a substantial amount of pride

I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer. And I take a substantial amount of pride in the accomplishments of my profession.
Neil Armstrong, in a 2000 interview return to the moon and emphasized private companies developing spaceships. He testified before Congress, and in an email to The Associated Press, Armstrong wrote he had substantial reservations. Along with more than two dozen Apollo-era veterans, he signed a letter calling the plan a misguided proposal that forc-

es NASA out of human space operations for the foreseeable future. Armstrong was among the greatest of American heroes, Obama said in a statement. When he and his fellow crew members lifted off aboard Apollo 11 in 1969, they carried with them the aspirations of an entire nation. They set out to show the world that the American spirit can see beyond what seems unimaginable that with enough drive and ingenuity, anything is possible, Obama said. Obamas Republican opponent Mitt Romney echoed those sentiments, calling Armstrong an American hero whose passion for space, science and discovery will inspire him for the rest of his life. With courage unmeasured and unbounded love for his country, he walked where man had never walked before. The moon will miss its first son of earth, Romney said. NASA Administrator

Ottoville to celebrate 50th Park Carnival

BY ALEX WOODRING OTTOVILLE For the past 49 Labor Day weekends, Ottoville has put on a carnival. This weekend will be no different as Ottoville hosts the 50th annual Ottoville Park Carnival Friday through Sunday. The Park Carnival is a town festival to raise money for the park in order to make improvements and fund programs. This year, the goal is to raise $50,000. Sponsors help bring in a wide array of entertainment and activities so all of the proceeds can go towards the parkss goal. The committee has a full schedule of events that includes live entertainment and a host of activities ranging from cow pie bingo to a chicken wing cook-off. The live entertainment this year is genre-crossing Ohio rock band Brother Believe Me and local country group Polly Mae. To help celebrate 50 years, there are two new dances. The first is a 50s/60s dance and for the first time at the carnival, there will be tractor square dancing. Both of these events are free to the public. Another highlight is a Pie in the Face contest where people can donate toward an individual to see them get pied in the face. The person that gets the most donations will be the recipient. Those participating are Ottoville locals Brian Saxton, Dane Wannemacher, the Rev. John Przybysz, Jon Thorbahn, Kyle Bendele, Scott Mangas and Ron Miller. Donations can be made around Ottoville in containers with the contestants faces on them.

Music in the Park sees successful sixth year

BY NANCY SPENCER DELPHOS Hundreds gathered at Stadium Park Sunday to listen to Dan Heath with the Paradise Band, the final offering this year of the Delphos Rotary Clubs Music in the Park series. The Rev. David Howell, concert chair for the club, said the series has been a great success not just this year but for the past five as well. When we started, we wanted to give people an opportunity to hear groups they wouldnt normally be able hear, Howell said. Weve had some really good groups come here and everyone enjoys being part of this series. We have groups calling us wanting to participate and our attendance has been extremely good. Music isnt the only thing offered during the concert series; a core group of local organzations provide a light supper and the Boy Scouts sell popcorn throughout each evening. We have dependable people who come to every concert to provide a variety of sandwiches and other food and I think the Scouts do well with their sales, too, Howell added.

Attendance has been steady with the first concert tallying the least and the Phil Dirt and the Dozers the most. So now the question on everyones mind is: Who will they see next year? We already have two groups lined up for 2013: Phil Dirt and the Dozers and Ragtime Ricks from Toledo, Howell said. Phil Dirt usually attracts our biggest crowd and Ragtime Ricks is a new group for us and I think people will really enjoy them. With four slots yet to fill, Howell said the Rotary will be busy this fall lining up what they hope will be another successful year.

Isaac crossing Gulf with New Orleans in crosshairs

By MATT SEDENSKY The Associated Press KEY WEST, Fla. Tropical Storm Isaac targeted a broad swath of the Gulf Coast today and had New Orleans in its crosshairs, bearing down just ahead of the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The potential for a landfall as soon as Tuesday prompted evacuations along a wide area of the Gulf Coast and sent people out to stock up on staples. I gassed up truck and generator, John Corll, 59, a carpenter, said as he left a New Orleans coffee shop this morning. He went through Katrina in 2005 and was expecting a weaker storm this time, adding that he thinks the levee system is in better shape to handle a storm surge than when Katrina hit. I think the state and local governments are much better prepared for the storm surge and emergencies, Corll said. Isaac blew past the Florida Keys and was rolling northwestward over the open Gulf of Mexico today. The National Hurricane Center predicted it would grow to a Category 1 hurricane over the warm water and possibly hit late Tuesday somewhere along a roughly 300-mile stretch from the bayous southwest of New Orleans to the Florida Panhandle. That would be one day shy of seven years after Katrina struck catastrophically in 2005, although Katrina was a much stronger Category 5 storm with winds over 157 miles per hour. Isaac is expected to have top winds of around 90 mph when it hits land. The size of the warning area and the storms wide bands of rain and wind prompted emergency declarations in four states, and hurricane-tested residents were boarding up homes, sticking up on food and water or getting ready to evacuate. On the Alabama coast, Billy Cannon, 72, was preparing to evacuate with several cars packed with family and four Chihuahuas from a home on a peninsula in Gulf Shores. Canon, who has lived on the coast for 30 years, said he thinks the order to evacuate today was premature. If it comes in, its just going to be a big rain storm. I think they overreacted but I understand where theyre coming from. Its safety, he said. The storm that left eight dead in Haiti blew past the Florida Keys with little damage and promised a drenching but little more for Tampa, where the planned today start of the Republican National Convention was pushed back a day in case Isaac passed closer to the bayside city. Isaac could pack a watery

double punch for the Gulf Coast. If it hits during high tide, Isaac could push floodwaters as deep as 12 feet onto shore in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama and up to six feet in the Florida Panhandle, while dumping up to 18 inches of rain over the region, the National Weather Service warned. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called a state of emergency, and 53,000 residents of St. Charles Parish near New Orleans were told to leave ahead of the storm. Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley also declared states of emergency. The oncoming storm stopped work on rigs that account for 24 percent of daily oil production in the U.S. potion of the Gulf of Mexico and eight percent of daily natural gas production there, the federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement said in its latest update Sunday. The Gulf of Mexico accounts for 23 percent of total U.S. crude oil production, 7 percent of the nations natural gas and more than 40 percent of refining capacity.

The Day God Called You Home

God knows that you were suffering That the hills were hard to climb. So he gently closed your eyes And whispered, Peace Be Thine. In tears we watched you suffer We watched you fade away. Our hearts were nearly broken You fought so hard to stay. But when we saw you sleeping So peacefully free of pain We could not wish you back To suffer that again. It broke our hearts to lose you But you did not go alone. A part of us went with you The day God called you home.

Free admission at museum Ohio school ready for new year after shooting We grew close to to honor Neil Armstrong the kids last year
By LISA CORNWELL The Associated Press CINCINNATI People wanting to pay their respects to Neil Armstrong and see an exhibit dedicated to his space exploit were waiting outside the doors for a Cincinnati museum to open Sunday, with more than 2,000 viewing the exhibit by the end of the day, museum officials said. Armstrong, the first man on the moon, died Saturday in Cincinnati at 82. The Ohioan commanded the historic landing of the Apollo 11 spacecraft on the moon on July 20, 1969. The exhibit dedicated to him at the Museum of Natural History & Science of the Cincinnati Museum Center includes a moon rock and replicas of Armstrongs Apollo 11 space suit and tools used on the moon. NASA allowed Armstrong and other astronauts to select sites for some moon rocks through its ambassadors for science program in 2006, and Armstrong chose the Cincinnati site, museum spokeswoman Elizabeth Pierce said. The museum is offering free admission through Labor Day to honor Armstrong, and Pierce said there were people of all ages coming through Sunday to view the exhibit. People were stopping to take pictures, and you could hear parents telling their children about Armstrong and what he did, Pierce said. Karen Danner, 41, of Cincinnati, heard about Armstrongs death and thought it would be a good time to take her daughter and a friend to see the exhibit. I wanted them to know about his accomplishments, said Danner, who said she always respected his courage. I cant imagine that anyone would take that kind of risk, she said. I admire how brave he was and what he did for everyone. Danners 11-year-old daughter, Rosemary Danner, said the replicas of the space suit and tools used to dig rocks from the moon are really cool. I think he was very brave, she said. The museum is collecting comments from those visiting the exhibit, enabling them to sign a book with a comment about how Armstrong has inspired them Pierce said the first response written Sunday was: Nothing is impossible! Another visitor wrote that Armstrongs accomplishment and quiet love of science inspired him to get a doctorate in aerospace engineering. George Vincent, a former chairman of the board for the Cincinnati Museum Center, said the day he presided over the ceremony in which Armstrong donated the rock was thrilling. Neil Armstrong was one of those people who when you met him was even better than you thought he would be, Vincent said. Another Ohio museum planning to honor Armstrong is the Armstrong Air and Space Museum in his hometown of Wapakoneta. Executive Director Chris Burton said the museum is planning a memorial service Wednesday that will be open to the public, but the plans have not been completed. Burton said he didnt know how many people came through Sunday, but his staff said there were more visitors than usual, and many said they were there to honor Armstrongs memory. CHARDON (AP) The notes and cards that hung in the hallways of Chardon High School expressing support following the deadly shootings in its cafeteria have been taken down. Lockers that belonged to the three students killed last winter have been removed and given to their families. The new lockers in their place have a commemorative plaque, but wont be assigned to students this year. The students and teachers at the school where three students died and three others were injured are starting to move forward with the beginning of a new school year. Principal Andrew Fetchik told The (Willoughby) NewsHerald that he wants the school to get back into a routine even though it never will be the same. The kids are still hurt and hurting. We want to be there for them, he said. The school is getting a grant from the federal government to pay for a security guard and mental health screenings for students and staff. The money also will

go toward paying for substitutes for teachers and staff who need time for counseling. The district has put new tables and fresh paint in the cafeteria. New classroom door locks have been installed too. When I hear the whistles blowing and band practicing it starts feeling like school again, Fetchik said. The teenager charged in the shooting has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder and felonious assault in the Feb. 27 shootings.

Mark Shafer, math teacher

Attorneys for 17-yearold T.J. Lane will have until the end of September to finish psychological evaluations and decide whether to change the teens not guilty plea. His attorneys are considering entering a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity instead. Lane attended an alternative school for students who havent done well in traditional schools. He was at Chardon waiting for a bus. Parents spent several weeks over the summer archiving the cards and notes that came from people across the world. Math teacher Mark Shafer said he missed the students over the summer. We grew close to the kids last year so we cant wait to see them again this year, he said. The community has become incredibly tight. Plans are being developed to turn a courtyard into a healing garden. Donations will help pay for it. We all have this sense of community that goes beyond words, said language arts teacher Dawn Weaver.

Doing whats right isnt the problem. It is knowing whats right.

Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th President of the United States (1908-1973).

Go ahead, raise taxes to save Social Security

By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER and JENNIFER AGIESTA Associated Press WASHINGTON Most Americans say go ahead and raise taxes if it will save Social Security benefits for future generations. And raise the retirement age, if you have to. Both options are preferable to cutting monthly benefits, even for people who are years away from applying for them. Those are the findings of a new Associated PressGfK poll on public attitudes toward the nations largest federal program. Social Security is facing serious long-term financial problems. When given a choice on how to fix them, 53 percent of adults said they would rather raise taxes than cut benefits for future generations, according to the poll. Just 36 percent said they would cut benefits instead. The results were similar when people were asked whether they would rather raise the retirement age or cut monthly payments for future generations 53 percent said they would raise the retirement age, while 35 percent said they would cut monthly payments. Right now, it seems like were taxed so much, but if that would be the only way to go, I guess Id have to be for it to preserve it, said Marge Youngs, a 77-year-old widow from Toledo, Ohio. Its extremely important to me. Its most of my income. Social Security is being hit by a wave of millions of retiring baby boomers, leaving relatively fewer workers to pay into the system. The trustees who oversee the massive retirement and disability program say Social Securitys trust funds will run out of money in 2033. At that point, Social Security will only collect enough tax revenue to pay 75 percent of benefits, unless Congress acts. Lawmakers from both political parties say there is a good chance Congress will address Social Security in the next year or two if the White House takes the lead. Yet so far, Social Security has not played a big role in the presidential election. In previous polls, Democrats have typically scored better than Republicans on handling Social Security. But the AP-GfK poll shows Americans are closely divided on which presidential candidate they trust to handle the issue. Forty-seven percent said they trust President Barack Obama to do a better job on Social Security, and 44 percent said they trust his Republican opponent, Mitt Romney. The difference is within the polls margin of sampling error. Charles McSwain, 69, of Philadelphia, said he trusts Obama because he thinks the president is more likely to

Prefacing the awarding of tournament trophies, two hole-in-one trophies were presented, the first to Ike Bandelier and the second to Jim Odenweller. 75 Years Ago 1937 A large number of spectators gathered at the Old Mill Lot on Thursday morning to witness the second annual Allen County Delphos Fair horse pulling contest. The contest was staged under the auspices of the Ohio Horse Pulling Association. The Delphos fair organization being a member of that association. The fourth Delphos city kittenball series game will be played Sunday afternoon at Waterwworks Park. Members of Millers Opticians and Coombs Shoes, teams contending for the championship of Delphos, decided that Sunday would be the logical day to continue the series. Coombs hold an edge of two victories to one for Millers. Paul Parnell, formerly director of Ziegfelds Follies, will be a Delphos Fair visitor on Friday and Saturday. He will visit with Carl Dienstberger, local orchestra leader. Dienstberger stated that he will attempt to get Parnell to direct the orchestra at the fair dance pavilion, at least part of the time, on Friday and Saturday nights.

US focuses its missile defense on North Korea

By MATTHEW PENNINGTON 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 countrys north, to contain threats from North Korea and to counter Chinas 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 its 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 Koreas ballistic missiles are considered a threat to security in the AsiaPacific region because of the risk of conflict erupting on the divided and heavily militarized Korean peninsula, and because of the secretive Norths 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 Chinas 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. 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 dont 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. She said the U.S. has broad discussions with China through military and political channels about the systems intent.

Romney uses secretive data-mining

By JACK GILLUM Associated Press WASHINGTON Mitt Romneys success in raising hundreds of millions of dollars in the costliest presidential race ever can be traced in part to a secretive datamining project that sifts through Americans personal information including their purchasing history and church attendance to identify new and likely, wealthy donors, The Associated Press has learned. For the data-mining project, the Republican candidate has quietly employed since at least June a little-known but successful analytics firm that previously performed marketing work for a colleague tied to Bain & Co., the management-consulting firm that Romney once led. The head of Buxton Co. of Fort Worth, Texas, chief executive Tom Buxton, confirmed to the AP his companys efforts to help Romney identify rich and previously untapped Republican donors across the country. The Romney campaign declined to discuss on the record its work with Buxton or the projects overall success. The project shows that the same strategies corporations By JOSH LEDERMAN Associated Press use to influence the way we shop and think are now being used to influence presidential elections. The same personal information that we give away, often unwittingly when we swipe our credit cards or log into Facebook, is now being collected by the people who might one day occupy the White House. There are no records of payments to Buxton from Romneys campaign, the Republican National Committee or a joint fundraising committee. Under federal law, companies cannot use corporate money or resources, such as proprietary data analysis, for in-kind contributions to campaigns. The effort by Romney appears to be the first example of a political campaign using such extensive data analysis. President Barack Obamas re-election campaign has long been known as data-savvy, but Romneys project appears to take a page from the Fortune 500 business world and dig deeper into available consumer data. Buxton said hes working for the Romney campaign because he wants to be on the winning team. He once worked with a former Romney business partner to provide insights, for

stick up for the middle class. He at least gives the appearance of trying to help people that arent super rich, and Romney doesnt, said McSwain, who works part time selling real estate. But Jeff Victory of Nashville, Tenn., worries that Obama doesnt have the stomach to cut benefits to help rein in the program. Barack has already shown hes going to give anything free out to everyone he possibly can, so Im going to have to go with Romney on that one, said Victory, a 26-yearold electrician. Romney has said he favors gradually increasing the retirement age, but he opposes tax increases to shore up Social Security. For future generations, Romney would slow the growth of benefits for those with higher incomes. Obama hasnt laid out a detailed plan for addressing Social Security. But during the 2008 campaign, he called for applying the Social Security payroll tax to wages above $250,000. It is now limited to wages below $110,100, a level that increases with inflation. Obama says any changes to Social Security should be done without putting at risk current retirees, the most vulnerable or people with disabilities, without slashing benefits for future generations and without subjecting Americans guaranteed retirement income to the whims of the stock market.

example, about where Petco should open a new pet-supply store to maximize profits. In addition to Buxton, the datamining project was described to the AP by a Romney fundraiser who spoke on condition of anonymity because the fundraiser did not want to face repercussions for describing internal campaign processes. Businesses use those kinds of analytics firms to answer key questions for clients, such as where to build a retail store or where to mail pamphlets touting a new product. The analysis doesnt directly bring in campaign contributions, but it generates the equivalent of sales leads for Romneys campaign. The project relies upon a sophisticated analysis by powerful computers of thousands of commercially available, expensive databases that are lawfully bought and sold behind the scenes by corporations, including details about credit accounts, families and children, voter registrations, charitable contributions, property tax records and survey responses. It combines marketing data with what is known in this specialized industry as psychographic information about Americans.

Missouri woes are latest for GOP in Senate quest

WASHINGTON Its not just Todd Akin. The fallout from the Missouri Senate candidates legitimate rape comment was the latest signal that the Republican path to the majority in the Senate may have just gotten tougher. Democratic prospects have improved in states where Republicans had long been favored, like North Dakota and Arizona. And Republicans also now face the possibility of losing a seat in Maine. The GOP argues that it still has a strong path to power, given improved prospects in states like Wisconsin, Nevada and Connecticut. On Capitol Hill, Republicans are expected to keep control of the House and need to gain four seats claim the Senate majority or three if Mitt Romney is elected, making Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan the tie-breaking vote. Which party controls the Senate has vast influence over the future of major policies, such as President Barack Obamas health care law and the tax code, as well as the makeup of the Surpeme Court. Four of nine current justices are over the age of 70. If Republicans win control of the Senate and hang onto the House majority, a secondterm Obama would find it difficult to pass any major legislation without great compromise. On the other hand, if Republican Mitt Romney wins and the GOP controls Congress, Romney could have an easy time pushing through his agenda to repeal Obamas health care overhaul and Wall Street regulations. Multiple factors appeared to be working in Republicans favor as this campaign cycle began. One-third of the Senate is up for grabs every other year, and this year, Democrats have 21 seats to defend, while Republicans have just 10. A still-sluggish economy, high unemployment and a Democratic president with an approval rating under 50 percent offered the GOP reasons for optimism. But the Senate terrain now looks less dreary for Democrats.

Moderately confused

The latest blow for Republicans came Sunday. Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, widely regarded as the most vulnerable Democrat up for re-election this year, watched her opponent, Rep. Akin, start to implode when he said in an interview that womens bodies can shut down pregnancies in cases of what he called legitimate rape. Although Akin repeatedly apologized, top Republicans demanded he drop out and vowed to deprive him of funds should he stay in the race, as Akin has vowed to do. That episode came six months after the surprise retirement announcement from Sen. Olympia Snowe, a popular Republican in leftleaning Maine. It created a major opening for Democrats, who were favored to pick up the seat until Angus King, the states independent former governor, entered the race. Although King has refused to say which party he will caucus with if he wins the seat, both parties expect him to cast his lot with Democrats, making it a loss for Republicans.

T-Birds D repels Blue Jays



Musketeers wear down Lady Blue Jays

By JIM METCALFE DELPHOS The St. Johns and Fort Jennings girls soccer units battled to a scoreless draw at the end of the first 40 minutes of action on a hot Saturday afternoon at the St. Johns Annex. The Lady Musketeers upped the offensive pressure in the second half and used their more experienced depth and speed to shut out the Lady Blue Jays 3-0. After no scoring the first half, the Musketeers (2-0-0) controlled the proceedings the rest of the way. With players such as seniors Macy Schroeder, Katlin Stechschulte, Elaina Maag and Kristen Maag and sophomore Marissa Good constabtly pressuring the Blue Jay defenders, it was only a matter of time before the Orange and Black broke through. Lady Jay sophomore goalkeeper Samantha Wehri (17 saves versus 28 total shots, 22 on-goal) came up with some big stops, especially in the 38th minute when she dove to deflect a 20-yarder by Schroeder and on a 20-yard rocket by Stechschulte in the 32nd. However, she could not keep it up in the 30th minute. Elaina Maag lofted a cross pass from the right side to sophomore Alyssa Louth, who fired a 10-yarder inside the left post for a 1-0 lead. On the other end, the St. Johns (0-3-0) attack struggled to get anything going, only managing three shots on-goal versus senior Gabbie German and she gobbled them all up to nab her second shutout of 2012. Senior Jessica Recker got an 18-yarder in the 24th minute that was denied by German. With the Musketeer speed causing major problems for clearly tiring Blue Jay defenders, the visitors kept attacking and forcing save after save by Wehri. The visitors finally got the second goal in the fifth minute. Louth went over the top from well out on the right side and over Wehri, nestling into the

In a defensive first half at the Annex Saturday afternoon, St. Johns senior Rylee Hamilton cuts off her counterpart, Fort Jennings senior Lori Bruskotter, to control the ball. However, the visiting Lady Musketeers wore down the Blue Jays for a 3-0 girls soccer triumph.

left side of the cords for a 2-nil edge. In the third minute, Jennings closed the scoring. Kristen Maag tried a long shot that Wehri deflected but it went right to Elaina Maag, who put in the ricochet from close range for the 3-goal final margin. There were few really good looks in the first half, especially from the Musketeers. Schroeder had the first good look in the 38th minute as her 22-yarder from the right wing curled wide left. The first half, we played them pretty well; we had to try and mimic what they were doing as best we could. Their speed gives a lot of trouble but I felt we did a good job of taking away the space; we didnt give them a lot of open looks and we pressured the ball, St. Johns coach John Munoz said. Samantha has really played well in goal; she stepped up as a sophomore and has made a lot of saves. Fort Jennings is just such a talented team that just comes at you and applies a lot of pressure; at some point, anyone will break. This first week of the season went about as well as Id hoped. We played three very good teams and we did pretty well overall. Fort Jennings won the junior varsity match 2-0 to improve to 2-0-0, while the Jays fall to 0-2-1. The heat and St. Johns physical play took us out of our game the first half. We had two starters come out and not return because of the heat, Musketeer coach Rod Wagner noted. The second half, we talked to the girls and wanted them to control the ball more and use our speed to make some runs at the keeper. I felt we did wear them down, too. We did a lot of conditioning this year; our assistant coach, Liz Pitney, is a trainer and she did a lot of work in that area during the off-season and during the preseason. Hopefully, we can avoid the slow season starts we have had over the years. The Musketeers attempt to get a jump on the PCL slate as they visit Miller City 5 p.m. Wednesday, while the Jays host Allen East Thursday (5 p.m.).

State-experienced Bulldog boys dominate SJ Invite

DELPHOS The Lima Central Catholic defense came up big on several occasions on a warm and humid Saturday night, repelling the St. Johns offense four times three in the second half in the red zone, and got just enough offense to grab an 18-13 heart-stopper before a large audience at Stadium Park. St. Johns head man Todd Schulte was straight to the point. We have had a easycome, easy-go attitude for three weeks in practice and it showed tonight. Our defense and special teams put us in great position all night and we did not have the mindset to take advantage of it, he added. This is not the St. Johns mindset and we will fix it. We will find out what kind of team we have starting (today). The Jays had rallied from a 12-0 deficit in the first half. They took advantage of Kody Whites fumble recovery at the Thunderbird 37 (with 44 ticks left in the half) with a 6-play scoring drive that junior tailback Tyler Jettinghoff (18 rushes, 66 yards) finished off with an 8-yard sweep of the left side, showing great patience to the pylon with four ticks showing. Senior Andrew Metzger tacked on the point-after for a 12-7 halftime deficit. The Jays stopped their foe on its first series of the second half and on a fake punt, Mykale Rogers was stopped by a hustling Brock Bonifas for a 2-yard gain on 4th-and-18 at the 15. After a procedure penalty set them back to the 22, Jettinghoff took a toss off right tackle, found the hole outside and was virtually untouched to the end zone. Metzgers PAT was wide left, leaving a 13-12 lead with 10:34 showing in the third. The Jays defense held several T-Birds struggled throughout the game with hydration issues and seemed to have all the momentum. However, the Blue and Gold had to punt. The Jays forced a turnover

on the third play from scrimmage at the LCC 19. Colin Stolly (2-of-6 passing, 63 yards) went over the middle to Sam Huffman (2 catches, 63 yards) and Metzger from his safety position crunched the receiver and dislodged the ball; senior linebacker Troy Warnecke grabbed the aerial and returned it 15 yards to the visitor 22. Senior Mark Boggs ran for eight yards and Jettinghoff 12 to reach the 2. However, a procedure call, a 6-yard loss, an incompletion and then a pick by Lee Stewart with the ball slipping through the receivers hands stopped that potential score. LCC got the Big Mo back with a 38-yard Huffman run, leading the way to a 5-play, 81-yard sequence. At the Jays 23, Rogers coming in motion from the left wing took a toss off the right side, found a hole and used his speed to get to the end zone. The conversion pass failed, leaving LCC up 18-13 with 1:57 to go in the third. A 58-yard connection from Boggs (6-of-17 passing, 90 yards) to Jettinghoff (5 catches, 83 yards) on the Jays next possession got them going but that drive ended on a 4thand-3 incompletion from the LCC 10. The Jays received another gift; the defense forced a punt and a bad punt snap allowed them to tackle Stolly at the 11. However, Jettinghoff was stopped a yard shot on 4thand-3 with 7:41. The T-Birds then turned to their running game to salt the game away a 16-play drive, 98-yard drive (all on the ground save for a 29-yard toss from Stolly to Huffman) that garnered six first downs and ate up the clock. Our defense came up big all night long. We made mistakes on offense and on special teams but our defense bailed us out, LCC coach Jerry Cooper said. Every time we needed a stop, we seemed to get it from someone. In the end, our offensive line took over and did a great job to let us run out the clock. After the Jays saw their first series end up on downs at the LCC 27, the Thunderbirds drew first blood on an 8-play

St. Johns senior safety Andrew Metzger times this hit perfectly to dislodge the ball from LCC receiver Sam Huffman during Saturday nights gridiron clash between the two archrivals at Stadium Park. The Jays missed numerous chances to score in the red zone as the visiting Thunderbirds seized an 18-13 victory.
sequence. Stolly found Huffman for 34 yards on a 3rd-and-14 from the 23 and then used his legs to sweep the left side from the Jays 3 with 3:26 showing in the opener. The 2-point pass failed, keeping the score at 6-0. The Jays next series ended up with a punt but when Stewart tried to catch Warneckes boot on the bounce, it went off his fingers and right into the waiting arms of senior Will Buettner at the guest 23; he ran it in but because it was a muff and not a fumble, the ball was placed back at the 23 with the hosts in possession. The Jays reached the 15 but due to a personal foul, instead of a 4thand-1, it was now 4th-and-16. An incompletion ended that chance. LCC commenced a 14-play, 70 yards drive all on the ground and went up 12-0 when Stolly, lined up for a 24-yard field goal try, picked up a bad snap and sped to the left pylon for the tally with 3:50 to go in the half. However, the 2-point pass went awry, setting up the Jays 13-point rally. LCC brings Crestview to town Friday at Stadium Park and St. Johns entertains Port Clinton 1 p.m. Saturday.

DELPHOS For most of the teams at the St. Johns Cross Country Invitational at Stadium Park Saturday morning, it was their first meet of 2012. The team that already had one meet under its belt, Columbus Grove, it was a great day for the state-experienced boys as they grabbed three of the top 4 places en route to the win in the 12-team race with 29 points. Jake Graham took first (16:34), Colton Grothaus third (16:58) and Alex Shafer fourth (17:06) during the warm and humid morning race. I think our guys really ran a smart race today. It was a bigger race than on Tuesday with more teams from our conference (Northwest Conference) and (Putnam County League) and whatnot; its easy to get caught up in the moment, so when the gun went off, obviously, a lot of kids went out fast, Grove boys coach Terry Schnipke said. Im used to seeing our guys up front but our guys stuck with their pace and they did what they were supposed to do and really picked up for the second half of the race. They really did well. Colton Grothaus kind of surprised me; he has been battling a little fatigue and wasnt strong Tuesday but had a really good race today. Grant (Schroeder) has been really strong and he (had a personal

record) today with 17:23. Nick Schmiesing ran a really good race today and finished 15th as our number 5 guy. Lincolnviews boys were second in that race with 70 points: Bayley Tow was fifth (17:17), Jeff Jacomet 10th (17:45) and Ben Bilimek 11th (17:46) to lead the way. Crestview, with Joel Genter finishing second (16:55) and Mycah Grandstaff ninth (17:33), ended up third. Its a good start to the season and we will go from there. The meet gave us a baseline to work from and we will progress from this point, head coach Mark Bagley noted. This was our first meet and we are pretty healthy. We will have one more person back next Saturday. We have 21 guys on our team right now and its the biggest team weve had in a while and thats good. We have some positive competition and good leadership. We had a couple kids run better than we expected. We had a couple kids who ran the race of their lives today. We only lost one senior who graduated and another who moved and we have some good freshmen. Spencerville ended up seventh. Aaron Hefner was the top Bearcat boy with a 12thplace finish (17:56), along with Caleb Vogt at 37th (19:03) and Joe Wisher at 39th (19:07). Oh, its the first meet of the year and you dont know what to expect; everyone goes out and runs and we had some kids who did well, had some surprises who did better than

I thought they would and had a few surprises who did not do as well as I thought they would, veteran mentor Brian McMichael explained. Its going to be a learning and building experience from here. Were not particularly strong coming into the year, so we have a lot of work to do. Kalida was the next local team, ending up 10th. Grant Zeller was 43rd (19:21.08), Eric Warnecke 74th (20:41) and Damon Birkmeier 98th (21:54). The boys ran well; it gave us a baseline of where we are at for our training, Wildcat coach Scott Miller said. We think we got that weve been working hard and we had a nice day today; no surprises yet. Our practices have been linking up with the performances. We have a lot of kids back, so we have high expectations as we move on. Ottoville finished 11th at 351 points, with Ryan Kimmet the highest placer at 85 (20:57.48), Andy Horstman 115 (22:43) and Mark Waldick 116 (22:50). Overall, we didnt do too badly today, long-time mentor Bob Kaple said. On the girls side, the Lady Bearcats were second behind perennial power LibertyBenton (29-57), with Karri Purdy nabbing fourth (21:04), Cierra Adams fifth (21:05) and Kacie Mulholland 14th (22:22). Our girls are OK coming in but its still going to be a work-in-progress season, McMichael added. We have to get better and better. Cierra did better than I expected. This is her first year running and is a sophomore and she did pretty well for us. The LadyCats were third with Jessica Doepker third (20:51.00), Jackie Gardner eighth (21:58.00) and Katelyn Siebeneck ninth (21:59.00). Our girls ran well. Its the same as for the boys; this gives you an idea of where you are

Anderson collects first Thunderstock Feature of 2012

For The Delphos Herald LIMA When the 2012 racing season began, it would have been a consensus safe bet that defending Thunderstocks champion Tony Anderson would post a handful of wins well before late August. Anderson is second on the all-time list of winning in the division and has been a perennial frontrunner. Unfortunately for the veteran racer from Bluffton, Shawn Valenti and Jeff Koz Tom Morris photo Jefferson senior Corinne Metzger uses her body to block have completely dominated a shot from Lima Central Catholic Saturday afternoon at the Thunderstocks, having Keith Hamel Memorial Field.

measures. Melissa Amstutz has been suffering from dehydration; she wanted to go but we wanted to be cautious and have her be 100 percent. Kaple knows a thing or two about being cautious. Not only does his Lady Green not have enough girls for a team but he sounded a familiar refrain from the last few seasons: We have a few injuries today. Overall, considering that, we didnt do too bad. St. Johns coach Steve Hellman, who also does not have enough runners in either the boys or the girls, saw positives. The kids ran a really good race today and Im really impressed with the second meet of the season. Most of the kids set a PR today, he added. I had a freshman Curtis Pohlman (24th in 18:34) run the fastest time for a freshman since 1995, so we have some encouraging kids coming up. Our top girl, Megan Joseph, twisted her ankle. She has been fighting injuries all season and just aggravated it worse. Aaron Hellman finished 86th in the boys race (20:57.72), Anthony Hale 121st (23:10) and Todd Rode 149th (26:08). Anna Mueller was 31st for the girls (23:25) and Teresa Pohlman 85th (27:34). The Lancer girls also didnt field a complete team, with Anna Gorman 20th (22:40.00) and Mikinzie Dull 113th (31:49.00) the only runners. St. Johns, Ottoville and Lincolnview are in Tuesdays Wayne Trace Invitational starting at 4:30 p.m. Spencerville, Kalida and Crestview are next in Saturday mornings (9 a.m.) Columbus Grove Invitational.

22nd (22:45.89) and Kayla Parlette 52nd (25:04.00). I dont think we did too bad today; my top two runners really dropped some time today and my 3 and 5 stepped up. I have a couple girls injured right now but they should really be in the top 8 and 7 and they should be back for the Grove Invite, head man Jason Jay said. Overall, Im please with the times we are having; its early in the season but times went down from Tuesday. Ill take that. No real surprise, it gave us a good indication for the NWC and PCL teams and such; good competition. The teams that run strong are running strong. Linnea Stevens has been out with the fair; Lindsay Malsam I think is going to do real well for us but she is hurt and we are just taking precautionary

Armstrongs small step a giant leap for humanity

By SETH BORENSTEIN The Associated Press WASHINGTON When man first harnessed fire, no one recorded it. When the Wright Brothers showed man could fly, only a handful of people witnessed it. But when Neil Armstrong took that first small step on the moon in July 1969, an entire globe watched in grainy blackand-white from a quarter million miles away We saw it. We were part of it. He took that giant leap for mankind for us. Although more than half of the worlds population wasnt alive then, it was an event that changed and expanded the globe. Its a human achievement that will be remembered forever, said John Logsdon, professor emeritus of space policy at George Washington University. Those first steps were beamed to nearly every country around the world, thanks to a recently launched satellite. It was truly the first global mass media event, Logsdon said. An estimated 600 million people 1 out of every 5 on the planet watched. The two historical events likely to be long remembered from the 20th Century are the moon landing and the first atomic bomb, said Smithsonian Institution space curator Roger Launius. There is no way to overestimate that significance in human history and he is forever linked to that, Launius said of Armstrong, who died Saturday at age 82. Just as the voyage of Christopher Columbus split historic eras 500 years ago, so will Neil Armstrong and Apollo 11, said Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley, a specialist in 20th Century history. We may be living in the age of Armstrong, said Brinkley, who conducted oral histories for NASA, including sessions with Armstrong. The late science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke wrote that the Apollo 11 moon landing was one of the great divides in human history; we are sundered from it forever by the moment when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped out on to the Sea of Tranquility. Now history and fiction have become inexorably intertwined. Since that day, theres been a common phrase: If we can send a man to the moon, why cant we ... ? with the blank filled with a task that seems far less difficult. Armstrongs small step was that leap in confidence telling the world if we can do this, we can do anything, said Howard McCurdy, a professor of space and public policy at American University and author of the book Space and the American Imagination.

He took something that 20 years earlier was pure fantasy and turned it into reality and if we could do that for space we could do it for anything.

Anti-Obama doc highlights weak Hollywood newcomers

LOS ANGELES (AP) Hollywood may have run out of summer hits, but an antiObama documentary is helping to fill the gap. Holdover movies easily topped the weekend box office again, led by Sylvester Stallones The Expendables 2 at No. 1 for the secondstraight weekend with $13.5 million. The weekends new wide releases were overshadowed by 2016: Obamas America, which expanded from limited to nationwide release and took in $6.2 million to finish at No. 8. The documentary is a conservative critique of what the country would look like four years from now if President Barack Obama is re-elected. Released by Rocky Mountain Pictures, Obamas America nearly matched the $6.3 million debut of the No. 7 movie, Joseph Gordon-Levitts action tale Premium Rush, a Sony release that played in more than twice as many theaters as the Obama documentary. The weekends other new wide releases opened weakly. Dax Shepard and Kristen Bells road-chase comedy Hit & Run, released by Open Road Films, debuted at No. 10 with $4.7 million, and the Warner Bros. fright flick The Apparition opened at No. 12 with $3 million. The weak openings are typical of late August, a dumping ground for movies without much audience appeal as the summer blockbuster season winds down and young viewers switch to back-to-school mode. But with less competition from Hollywood releases, it also opens the door for surprise successes such as Obamas America. Its extremely rare for a documentary to break into the top-10, but August can be a land of opportunity for smaller films, said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Also, theres the fact that this is a very conservative film. Normally, its Michael Moore-branded documentaries, the liberal documentaries that make all the money. Obamas America opened in a handful of theaters in mid-July and did strong business as it gradually widened to more cities. It jumped into the top-10 this weekend as it expanded into 1,091 theaters, leading all other wide releases with an average of $5,717 a cinema. Thats a solid average, especially for a political documentary. But it pales next to the king of political documentaries, Moores George W. Bush assault Fahrenheit 9/11, which opened at No. 1 with $23.9 million in June 2004, averaging $27,558 in 868 theaters. Fahrenheit 9/11 went on to become the top-grossing documentary ever with $119.1 million domestically. Obamas America is based on the book The Roots of Obamas Rage, written by Dinesh DSouza, who co-directed the movie with John Sullivan. The documentary now has climbed to a $9.1 million domestic total, with prospects for strong business as the Republican National Convention unfolds over the next few days. DSouza said Sunday that Obamas America will expand to more cities in the coming weeks and probably remain in theaters until early October, likely followed by a DVD release in the homestretch leading up to the Nov. 6 election. Conservatives probably account for most of the documentarys audience so far, DSouza said. But as with Fahrenheit 9/11, which drew many conservatives out of curiosity, the attention Obamas America now is receiving could prompt leftleaning viewers to check it out, he said. Whats happening is that people are really hungry for new information about Obama. There really is this sense that he remains an elusive figure, DSouza said. Then theres a second sense that the American dream is in the balance, the American dream is at stake, and that gives people a sense of anxiety about where the country is going. Released by Lionsgate, The Expendables 2 raised its domestic total to $52.3

million after two weekends. In limited release, IFC Films Sleepwalk with Me had a huge debut with $77,400 in a single New York City theater. Produced and co-written by Ira Glass of National Public Radios This American Life, Sleepwalk with Me stars writer-director Mike Birbiglia in a semi-autobiographical story of a stand-up comic struggling with career and romance, along with bad bouts of sleepwalking. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood. com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released today.

1. The Expendables 2, $13.5 million. 2. The Bourne Legacy, $9.3 million. 3. ParaNorman, $8.5 million. 4. The Campaign, $7.4 million. 5. The Dark Knight Rises, $7.2 million. 6. The Odd Life of Timothy Green, $7.1 million. 7. Premium Rush, $6.3 million. 8. 2016: Obamas America, $6.2 million. 9. Hope Springs, $6 million. 10. Hit & Run, $4.7 million.

He took something that 20 years earlier was pure fantasy and turned it into reality and if we could do that for space we could do it for anything, McCurdy said Saturday. The Apollo 11 moon landing was the finish line in a decade-long space race started by the Soviet Union. And so the first steps on the moon coming from an American civilian had many meanings. Getting there first showed American technological superiority, but Armstrong mentioned mankind not Americans demonstrating that this was a moment for the people of Earth, McCurdy said. Armstrong and Aldrin left a plaque on the moon that read: Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the moon. July 1969 A.D. We came in peace for all mankind. For all mankind. And thats how the world took it. The success for America (is a) success for every living man reported the Swahili-language newspaper Nguromo of Dar. And if that wasnt enough, Armstrong and Aldrin also left a patch to commemorate NASA astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts who had died in pursuit of space. It was special and memorable but it was only instantaneous because there was work to do, Armstrong told an Australian television interviewer this year. The Cold War may have slightly muted the significance of the event at the time, but over the years the importance of the moon landing has only grown, Logsdon said. Its permeated into culture. The moon landing is in movies, television, books, songs and it was even Michael Jacksons signature dance step. Thats probably because in some ways that moonwalk touched something that has been hardwired into humanity: the need to explore. For 25,000 years, humans have been migrating and pushing into new places. Armstrong took it to new heights. John Glenn, the first American to orbit the Earth, noted it was the first time any human being set foot on a place other than Earth, and thats a pretty big step.

(Continued from page 1) Charles Bolden recalled Armstrongs grace and humility. As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them, remembered for taking humankinds first small step on a world beyond our own, Bolden said in a statement. Armstrongs modesty and self-effacing manner never faded. When he appeared in Dayton in 2003 to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of powered flight, he bounded onto a stage before a packed baseball stadium. But he spoke for only a few seconds, did not mention the moon, and quickly ducked out of the spotlight. He later joined Glenn, by then a senator, to lay wreaths on the graves of Wilbur and Orville Wright. Glenn introduced Armstrong and noted that day was the 34th anniversary of his moonwalk. Thank you, John. Thirtyfour years? Armstrong quipped, as if he hadnt given it a thought. At another joint appearance, Glenn commented: To this day, hes the one person on earth Im truly, truly envious of. Armstrongs moonwalk capped a series of accomplishments that included piloting the X-15 rocket plane and making the first space docking during the Gemini 8 mission, which included a successful emergency splashdown. In the years afterward, Armstrong retreated to the quiet of the classroom and his southwestern Ohio farm. In an Australian interview earlier this year, Armstrong acknowledged that now and then I miss the excitement about being in the cockpit of an airplane and doing new things. Glenn, who went through jungle training in Panama with Armstrong as part of the astronaut program, described him as exceptionally brilliant with technical matters but rather retiring, doesnt like to be thrust into the limelight much. The 1969 landing met an audacious deadline that President Kennedy had set in May 1961, shortly after Alan Shepard became the first American in space with a 15-minute suborbital flight. (Soviet cosmonaut Yuri A. Gagarin had orbited the Earth and beaten the U.S. into space the previous month.) I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before the decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth, Kennedy had said. No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important to the long-range exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish. The end-of-decade goal was met with more than five months to spare. Houston: Tranquility Base here, Armstrong radioed after the spacecraft settled onto the moon. The Eagle has landed. Roger, Tranquility, Apollo astronaut Charles Duke radioed back from Mission Control. We copy you on the ground. Youve got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. Were breathing again. Thanks a lot. The third astronaut on the mission, Michael Collins, circled the moon in the mother ship Columbia 60 miles overhead while Armstrong and Aldrin went to the moons surface. He was the best, and I will miss him terribly, Collins said through NASA. In all, 12 American astronauts walked on the moon before the last moon mission in 1972. For Americans, reaching the moon provided uplift and respite from the Vietnam War, from strife in the Middle East, from the startling news just a few days earlier that a young woman had drowned in a car driven off a wooden bridge on Chappaquiddick Island by Sen. Edward Kennedy. The landing occurred as organizers were gearing up for Woodstock, the legendary

Rodger and Nancy Wreede will celebrate 50 years of marriage on Sept. 1. Roger and Nancy were married on that date in 1962. To celebrate, a reception will be held from 2-4 p.m. on Sept. 9 at Trinity United Methodist Church, 211 East Third Street, Delphos. This special event is hosted by their two children, Brent (Michelle) Wreede of Delphos and Rhonda (Carl) Grothaus of Findlay. They also have five grandchildren: Craig, Carrie, Kyle, Corey and Keith; and three great-grandchildren: Lillian, Addison and Keegan. three-day rock festival on a farm in the Catskills of New York. Armstrong was born Aug. 5, 1930, on a farm near Wapakoneta in western Ohio. He took his first airplane ride at age 6 and developed a fascination with aviation that prompted him to build model airplanes and conduct experiments in a homemade wind tunnel. As a boy, he worked at a pharmacy and took flying lessons. He was licensed to fly at 16, before he got his drivers license. Armstrong enrolled in Purdue University to study aeronautical engineering but was called to duty with the U.S. Navy in 1949 and flew 78 combat missions in Korea. After the war, Armstrong finished his degree from Purdue and later earned a masters degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Southern California. He became a test pilot with what evolved into

the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, flying more than 200 kinds of aircraft from gliders to jets. Armstrong was accepted into NASAs second astronaut class in 1962 the first, including Glenn, was chosen in 1959. He commanded the Gemini 8 mission in 1966, bringing back the capsule back in an emergency landing in the Pacific Ocean when a wildly firing thruster kicked it out of orbit. Aldrin said he and Armstrong were not prone to free exchanges of sentiment. But there was that moment on the moon, a brief moment, in which we sort of looked at each other and slapped each other on the shoulder ... and said, We made it. Good show, or something like that, Aldrin said. An estimated 600 million people a fifth of the worlds population watched and listened to the landing, the largest audience for any single event in his-

Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Beining of Fort Jennings will celebrate 40 years of marriage on Sept. 1 with a Mass of Thanksgiving. A small family celebration is set later in September. Kenneth and the former Rita Miller were married on Sept. 1, 1972, at St. Barbaras Catholic Church in Cloverdale, the Rev. Virgil Riedlinger officiating. They are the parents of three sons, Nathan Nate (Anita) Beining of Kokomo, Ind., Darren Byner (Amy) Beining of Fort Jennings and Kristin Hobbs (Tammy) Beining of Toledo. They also have seven grandchildren. Kenneth works at Ottawa Oil as an oil distributor. Rita is employed at Van Wert County Hospital. tory. Parents huddled with their children in front of the family television, mesmerized by what they were witnessing. Farmers abandoned their nightly milking duties, and motorists pulled off the highway and checked into motels just to see the moonwalk. Television-less campers in California ran to their cars to catch the word on the radio. Boy Scouts at a camp in Michigan watched on a generator-powered television supplied by a parent. Afterward, people walked out of their homes and gazed at the moon, in awe of what they had just seen. Others peeked through telescopes in hopes of spotting the astronauts. In Wapakoneta, media and souvenir frenzy was swirling around the home of Armstrongs parents. You couldnt see the house for the news media, recalled John Zwez, former manager of the Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum. People were pulling grass out of their front yard.

The Herald A11

Tomorrows Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, AUGUST 28, 2012 You will be bolder and much more enterprising in the year ahead regarding developments that could increase your holdings. Youll channel your drive in positive directions, and the results will be to your liking. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Dont allow any outside influences to cause you to be unduly rushed regarding tasks that are detailed and intricate. Haste will most assuredly perpetrate serious errors or complications. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you try to juggle accounts around in order to rob Peter to pay Paul, all youll do is create even more havoc in your financial affairs. Live within your means. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Your loved ones will follow the example you set when you deal with them. If you are cranky, shorttempered or impatient, it isnt likely that your family life will be pleasant. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you have to deal with a difficult person, it might be hard to keep your anger in check. It would be best to smolder in silence rather than respond in kind. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Financial arrangements with friends could cause problems. Should a disagreement arise over something material, suffer the loss rather than jeopardize the relationship. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Sometimes there is a fine line between being assertive and being just plain aggressive. If youre not considerate, you might have trouble distinguishing between the two. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Its never a good idea to butt into a testy situation that doesnt directly concern you. You wont derive any benefits from getting in the middle of someone elses mess. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -If you encounter someone who is as strong-willed and inflexible about his or her opinions as you are, any trivial disagreement can quickly be blown out of proportion. Be careful. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Make sure that someone whose cooperation is essential to you is handled with the utmost diplomacy so that he or she doesnt become an adversary instead of an ally. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Dont take something that you need repaired back to an establishment that gave you problems in the past. Youd be wise to look for a place that is more reliable. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You should try not to be overly possessive of a person with whom you are emotionally involved. Unfortunately, the tighter you try to hold on to him or her, the faster she or he is apt to run. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An outsider should not be allowed to try to help resolve a disagreement between you and your special someone. If you think things are heated now, outside intervention would only pour more gasoline on the fire. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 2012 Conditions in general look to be rather hopeful for you in the year ahead. Thus, if and when you should get into a fraught situation, know that Lady Luck is likely to be there, bringing help just in the nick of time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It behooves you to follow your instincts when it comes to your business dealings. If nothing more, use these perceptions as support for your logical assessments. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Make it a point to take some of the slack out of a fading friendship that you havent had much time for lately. There are few things more valuable than good chums. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -The race is likely to be won by the smartest, not necessarily the swiftest, when it comes to a career matter. Be sure to use that thinking cap of yours, so you dont trip over your own feet. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If youre alert, you have a good chance of learning something extremely important from a good friend. However, whats said should be restricted to the parties involved. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your determination in pursuing your objectives is impressive, but equally important is that others recognize your intentions and make it a point to get out of your way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -If you believe it is necessary to make a difficult decision that everyone else is putting off, have the courage to stick to your guns and do so. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- This is likely to be the day when you promised yourself youd embark on carefully laid out plans. If you know each step you must take, there isnt any reason why you shouldnt succeed. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- By staying in the middle at all times, youll fare much better in your dealings with friends. If youre smart, you wont let it be known which side you really think is right. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Spare yourself from calling in an expensive repairman by exercising preventive maintenance. If you play it safe, you wont be sorry. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Be sure to include an extremely introverted, shy friend in your plans. If the invitation doesnt come from you, it isnt likely to be issued at all, because no one else will think of it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The entire clan is likely to profit when the shopping duties are put in your hands. Your caring nature makes you very attentive to everyones needs and wants. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -You should take advantage of the opportunity to clear the air with a friend when the opportunity presents itself. Dont hesitate to talk it out in detail until both parties are satisfied.

Deep in your neck a pair of blood vessels (vertebral arteries) pass through 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 and slow the blood flow to your brain, (the start of a migraine). Dr. Reed, D.C. can gently re-align your spine without popping or twisting your neck.
