Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

HERALD
Delphos, Ohio in Benghazi, Libya, last month that killed four Americans. The issue is sure to continue to be debated next week, with the third and closing debate focused on foreign policy scheduled Monday at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla. “As the facts come out about the Benghazi attack we learn more troubling facts by the day,” Ryan told “This Morning” on CBS. “So that’s why need to get to the bottom of this to get answers so that we can prevent something like this from ever happening again.” Romney, brimming with confidence, distilled the essence of his campaign message early in Tuesday’s 90-minute debate and repeated it often. “I know what it takes to get this economy going,” he said over and over. And this: “We can do better.” And this: “We don’t have to settle for what we’re going through.” Obama, with both the benefit and the burden of a record to run on, had a more nuanced message. “The commitments I’ve made, I’ve kept,” he said. “And those that I haven’t been able to keep, it’s not for lack of trying and we’re going to get it done in a second term.” Obama also was relentless in dismissing the merits of Romney’s policies and rejecting his characterizations of the president’s record. “Governor Romney doesn’t have a five-point plan,” the president argued. “He has a one-point plan. And that plan is to make sure that folks at the top play by a different set of rules.” See DEBATE, page 4A

Presidential debate

2 alphas wage fight of their lives
The Associated Press HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Two alphas in the fight of their lives, President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney sparred with passion and grit in a debate that previewed the closing arguments of a campaign that keeps circling back to bedrock questions about which candidate can do more to strengthen the fragile economy. Fresh off their latest encounter and with just three weeks left in the race, the candidates fan out in all directions today to pitch their tuned-up messages directly to voters on some of the campaign’s most treasured turf: Romney in Virginia, Obama in Iowa. Vice President Joe Biden is westward bound for Colorado and Nevada; GOP running mate Paul Ryan returns to all-important Ohio. It was a re-energized Obama who showed up for Tuesday’s debate at Hofstra University, lifting the spirits of Democrats who felt let down by the president’s limp performance in the candidates’ first encounter two weeks ago. But Romney knew what was coming and didn’t give an inch, pressing his case even when the arguments deteriorated into did-not, did-too rejoinders that couldn’t have done much to clarify the choice for undecided voters. Tuesday’s debate was the third installment in what amounts to a four-week-long reality TV series for Campaign 2012. Romney was the clear victor in the series debut, Biden aggressively counterpunched in the next-up vice presidential debate, and the latest faceoff featured two competitors determined to give no quarter. It was a pushy, interruption-filled encounter filled with charges and countercharges that the other guy wasn’t telling the truth. The two candidates were both verbally and physically at odds in the town hall-style format, at one point circling each other center stage like boxers in a prize fight. “I thought it was a real moment,” Biden told NBC’s “Today” show in an interview that aired this morning. “When they were kind of circling each other, it was like, ‘Hey, come on man, let’s level with each other here’.” One of the debate’s tensest moments was when Romney suggested Obama’s administration may have misled Americans over what caused the attack at the U.S. consulate

Water, sewer accounts lower than expected
BY NANCY SPENCER nspencer@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — City council learned the state of the water and sewer accounts at Monday’s meeting. Auditor Tom Jettinghoff gave the year-to-date revenue and expense reports for the accounts, noting projections for the year-end balances of both accounts. The water account is projected to show a positive balance of $140,782, nearly $162,000 less than projected. Jettinghoff told council the shortfall was from added carbon costs at the plant and the loss of income from Orval Kent. The sewer account is projected to show a positive balance of $1,354,886. Jettinghoff said the balance of the account will come in a little under due to the loss of Orval Kent income and the sewer projects that totaled $90,000 recently completed on Erie Street and in the Menke Addition. Jettinghoff said overall, the account balances look OK.

Safety Service Director Greg Berquist told council engineers from Verizon may be visiting the water tower to add more cellular rays on the structure. Verizon pays the city $15,000 a year to use the tower in this manner. Mayor Michael Gallmeier reminded council of the upcoming coat drive from 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 27 at the city building. New and gentlyused coats for men, women and children will be accepted and donated to the Interfaith Thrift Shop. Councilman Jim Knebel questioned what the time frame is for residents to leave their garbage containers at the curb. Knebel said he noticed several containers at the curb during the week on non-collection days. Berquist said the containers are allowed at the curb for a 24-hour period surrounding garbage collection and then are to be removed. He added that he has sent out a dozen letters concerning this in the past and if he is informed of this happening, he will send out letters to the appropriate residents.

FORT Adventure program focuses on studies, creativity
BY STEPHANIE GROVES sgroves@delphosherald.com FT. JENNINGS — The FORT Adventure after-school program, sponsored by the county Safe Schools/Healthy Students Initiative grant, is back in full swing. Seventyseven students at Fort Jennings Elementary are enrolled in the fall session. FORT (Focusing on Remarkable Things) Adventure is open to all students in grades 1-4. The program, which runs from 3-4:30 p.m. two days a week, is structured to give students an activity period, provide healthy snacks and assistance with completing homework, as well as an opportunity to participate in a variety of enrichment activities. Fort Jennings teachers Geri Kaverman, Carolyn Horstman and Margarita Madley and Ottawa-Glandorf speech teacher Laurie Lindeman provide instruction for the offering. They also rotate so each has every class at least once. “The students are excited about learning and getting their homework done,” Horstman said. “It also gives them the stimulus of the enrichment activities and additional time to interact with teachers and peers.” The activity period is held first, allowing students to go outside, weather permitting, and blow off some energy before settling back in the classroom. A healthy snack is offered in the cafeteria before children start their hour of learning. The first half-hour is for homework with a teacher present for assistance. The second halfhour is for enrichment with hands-on activity. “All of our instructors teaching enrichment activities are certified,” Fort Jennings Elementary School Principal Kathy Verhoff explained. “Students participate in enrichment activities including astronomy, book publishing, learning Spanish, building a hovercraft and more.” The school was awarded the grant in 2008 from the Putnam County Educational Service Center in Ottawa through the Safe Schools/ Healthy Students Initiative, a

Four arrested on drug-related charges
Submitted by Delphos Police Chief Kyle Fittro During the past year, numerous drug-related search warrants have been executed within the City of Delphos. On many occasions, the suspect is not arrested at the scene. Although this practice may alarm certain people, it is standard procedure, and does not mean the suspect has “gotten away” with any alleged crime(s). After the search warrant has been executed and all evidence has been gathered, the investigating officer presents the facts to a Grand Jury. The Grand Jury then determines if there is sufficient evidence to formally charge (indict) the suspect with a crime. During the October session of the Allen County Grand Jury, four individuals from Delphos were indicted with drug related crimes. All four have recently been arrested on these indictments and are in custody in the Allen County Jail. They are as follows: David W. Nelson, 50 — Charged with two counts of felony 5 trafficking in marijuana and one count of felony 4 trafficking in marijuana. Nelson was found at his home in the 400 block of East Suthoff Street and was arrested without incident. Cynthia A Kline, 53 — Charged with three counts of felony 5 trafficking in marijuana and one count of felony 5 possession of a Schedule 2 controlled substance. Kline was made aware of the warrants and turned herself in at the Allen County Sheriff’s Office. Dustin W. Lehmkuhle, 23 — Charged with one count of See ARRESTS page 10A

During a visit to Northwest Ohio’s Owens-Illinois last week, I saw first-hand how innovation and investment can help preserve and create new manufacturing jobs in Ohio. With plans to open a new 18,000-square-foot Research and Development (R&D) center, O-I will create 45 new jobs. However, not all U.S. manufacturers are able to invest in the research and development that fuels job growth. In fact, according to the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), the U.S. ranks 21st in the growth of business-funded research, with such research actually declining as a share of our GDP. To keep American manufacturing moving forward, Washington needs to take action to promote the innovation and advances that protect jobs in Ohio. However, our tax code does too little to promote investment in research, and allows companies to move plants overseas while deducting the moving costs. Rather than create tax incentives for companies that ship jobs overseas, we should be finding ways to grow and create jobs here. We know that when American manufacturing moves to other countries we don’t just lose production, we also forgo innovation. That’s simply because innovative processes are often discovered on the factory floor. It’s a lot easier for an Ohio engineer to walk across the street to the plant than to fly halfway around the world to

3 charged with illegal voting in central Ohio

COLUMBUS (AP) — A central Ohio grand jury has indicted three people for allegedly voting more than once in past elections. Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said the indictments Tuesday charged the three with felony voter fraud. All allegedly tried to vote twice by absentee ballot, two of them in the 2010 general election and one in the 2008 primary election. Illegal voting is a 4thdegree felony, punishable by up to 18 months in prison. The three cases were referred to the prosecutor’s office by a unanimous vote of the county board of elections in Columbus. The county referred cases of suspected double voting to the prosecutor’s office in 2007 and 2009. Both resulted in convictions.

Economy

Tame US prices, more confident builders aid growth
By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The outlook for the U.S. economy brightened a little Tuesday after reports that consumer prices stayed tame and homebuilder confidence rose to the highest level in six years. A third report showed factory output grew only modestly in September, a reminder that the economy is still weak. Low inflation could give consumers even more incentive to spend at a time when their confidence is at a fiveyear high. That could boost growth and help lift American manufacturers out from their slump. The economy remains the top issues for voters with just three weeks left before Election Day. It will be front and center Tuesday night when President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney meet at New York’s Hofstra University for the second of three debates. Tuesday’s data showed: — The consumer price index rose a seasonally adjusted 0.6 percent in September, the Labor Department said. The increase was driven by higher gas prices. When excluding gas and food costs, prices rose just 0.1 percent. Overall prices have risen just 2 percent in the 12 months that ended in September, in line with the Federal Reserve’s inflation target. — The National Association of Home Builders said its survey of builder sentiment rose to a reading of 41 this month, the highest level since June 2006. The index is still below 50, which indicates negative sentiment about the market. But it has steadily climbed over the past year from a reading of 17, further evidence of a slow but steady housing recovery. — The Federal Reserve said that output at factories, mines and utilities rose 0.4 percent in September after a sharp decline in August. Factory output, the most important component of industrial production, edged up only 0.2 percent last month. The report also noted that factory out fell in the July-September quarter. That marked the first quarterly decline since the spring of 2009, when the country was still in recession. The report on low inflation contributed to a second straight day of strong gains on Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 127 points to close at 13,551, its biggest gain since Sept. 13. Broader indexes also gained. Modest inflation leaves consumers with more money to spend. Consumer spending drives roughly 70 percent of economic activity. The small increase in prices prompted the government to raise Social Security benefits 1.7 percent next year for 56 million recipients. The government increases benefits each year if prices rise. The boost was one of the smallest since automatic adjustments began in 1975. Still, elderly Americans and other recipients will have a little more buying power next year. Social Security

DEAR EDITOR: Paper boys and girls Wow what a job these kids do! They are out in all kinds of weather, up by 4 a.m. on Saturday morning and out the door delivering. It’s pretty much a thankless job, as people want their paper put in specific places. I can certainly see the elderly or handicapped may need this help but the younger generation certainly doesn’t. Then the Delphos Herald gets calls that their paper wasn’t delivered and they blame the carrier. Before you get irate, maybe you should think did someone else in the family pick it up, did a neighbor pick it up by mistake, did a neighborhood dog carry it away, who knows. But instead of getting all upset over it why don’t you call your paper carrier and ask if they could bring you another one? These young carriers don’t get paid much. Yes, I understand it teaches them responsibility and gives them the tools they need to find a better job when they are older. I can honestly tell you that most people wouldn’t do this job because of the pay. So, congratulations to these young kids and their parents who support them. Remember your paper carriers at Christmas and tip them once in a while if you see them. Tell them what a great job they do. Before you complain maybe you should deliver the paper with them one day to see just what they do go through. Donna Klingler Delphos

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

After Clinton, Obama takes Benghazi responsibility

One Year Ago • The Delphos Kiwanis Club held a meeting Oct. 5 at the Delphos Eagles to install new officers for the upcoming. Dennis Elwer presented officers pins to incoming President Howard Violet, Vice President Jamey Wisher, Treasurer Cindy Metzger and Secretary Janet Metzger. 25 Years Ago — 1987 • Delphos Republican Club annual dinner was held Monday at Jefferson Senior High School. More than 80 heard main speaker, Robert A. Taft II, explain changes he feels are important for Ohio. Taft’s father and grandfather, Robert A. Taft were United States Senators from Ohio. His great-grandfather, William Howard Taft, was the only person to serve as president of the United States and as chief justice of the United States Supreme Court. • More than 35 members were present for the monthly meeting of the Rosary-Altar Society of the Ottoville Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. The session was conducted by President-elect Marilyn Calvelage. Lunch of cookies and coffee were served by Jane Schweller, Anna Odenweller, Julie Landin, Ruth Ricker and Stella Buettner. • The Ottawa River Church of Christ in Rimer, will hold its homecoming Oct. 25. The homecoming will be combined with a 90th birthday celebration and retirement program for the Rev. Norman Greenawalt. Rev. Greenawalt has been a minister 62 years and served at Ottawa River Church 20 years. 50 Years Ago — 1962 • The Elida Garden Club held its first regular meeting of the year Tuesday at Vogt’s Restaurant. Mrs. Richard Keiswetter was officially installed as the new vice president. Other officers are president, Mrs. Earl Dienstberger; recording secretary, Mrs. William Strayer; corresponding secretary, Mrs. Nolan Mosier; and treasurer, Mrs. Howard Leis. • The New York Yankees won the World Series, 1-0, but the vanquished San Francisco Giants won the hearts of baseball fans the world over. They finally bowed to those mighty Yankees, who are long accustomed to winning, but midnight did not toll for this Cinderella team until it went as far as baseball law allows. • Mrs. Bert Redmon was elected leader of the Rebecca Circle of the First United Presbyterian Church at a meeting of the circle held Monday evening in the home of Mrs. Oliver Lundgren. Mrs. Burnell Bowersock announced that a fresh shipment of pecans have arrived and will be on sale by all circle members. 75 Years Ago — 1937 • The first annual corn husking contest and colt show, sponsored by the Allen County granges, was a great success. First place winner in the standing corn husking contest was George Greenway of Columbus Grove. First place winner in shock corn husking was Jesse Shaw of Lima. First place winner in the colt show was Grover Bishop of Elida, and first place in filly class was August Kramer of Delphos. • The Delphos Merchants are scheduled to play baseball against the Ottoville Merchants Sunday afternoon at the city athletic field. Ditto will probably be on the mound for Delphos and Mericle will be on the receiving end. Manager Sterling states the game will be played according to schedule providing it does not snow. • Mrs. John Bryan entertained the members of the 1917 Sewing Club at her home on Harding Highway Friday afternoon. Mrs. Roy Fethers presented a reading. In a contest, the high honors were awarded Mrs. Bert Metcalfe and second honors went to Mrs. Philip Walther. The club members will hold their annual Halloween party at the home of Cora Leininger, West Third Street, Oct. 28.

IT WAS NEWS THEN

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama assumed responsibility Tuesday for the deadly terror attack in Libya last month that killed four Americans just hours after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton sought to shoulder the blame for any mistakes the administration made. “She works for me,” the president said in New York in his second presidential debate with Republican challenger Mitt Romney. “I’m the president and I’m always responsible, and that’s why nobody’s more interested in finding out exactly what happened than I do.” With three weeks before the presidential election, the administration has been unable to put to rest its handling of the Benghazi attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, a State Department computer specialist and two former Navy SEALs who were working as contract security guards. Obama’s statement came amid a spirited back-and-forth with the former Massachusetts governor over the assault on the consulate, the only significant foreign policy disagreement in an hourand-a-half exchange dominated by domestic concerns. Romney challenged the president to explain why U.S officials argued for more than a week after the Sept. 11 assault that it stemmed from a protest against an American-made film ridiculing Islam. “Whether there was some misleading, or instead whether we just didn’t know what happened, you have to ask yourself why didn’t we know,” Romney said. “It was very clear this was not a demonstration,” he said. “This was an attack by terrorists.” The two also traded jabs on how quickly the president declared Benghazi an act of terror — with Romney insisting it took two weeks and Obama saying he said as much the day after in an address from the White House Rose Garden. That drew an intervention from the moderator, CNN’s Candy Crowley, who appeared to side with Obama.

Debate

payments for retired workers average $1,237 a month, or about $14,800 a year. The increase is equal to roughly $21 more a month. Consumers may also be inclined to step up spending if their home values keep rising. The homebuilder survey showed that sales and builders’ outlook over the next six months remained unchanged from September’s improved levels. And a measure of buyer traffic rose to its highest level since April 2006. Americans are buying homes again, pushing up sales and prices after a six-year slump. The recovery has been modest and housing has a long way back to full health. But the steady increases suggest housing is no longer weighing on growth. The same can’t be said for manufacturing, which has slumped since spring. Europe’s debt crisis and slower growth in China and other emerging markets have hurt demand for American exports. Many companies have also held back on purchases of equipment and machinery. They are waiting to see if Congress can reach a deal before the end of the year to avert sharp tax increases and spending cuts. The September growth in factory output was an encouraging sign that manufacturing may be starting to rebound. A separate survey from the Institute for Supply Management also showed manufacturing activity expanded for the first time since May, buoyed by new orders and hiring.

(Continued from page 1A)

The candidates were in each other’s faces — sometimes literally — before an audience of 82 uncommitted voters from New York. It’s a state that’s already a sure bet for Obama, but the voters there stood as proxy for millions of Americans across the nation still settling on a candidate. “They spent a lot of time cutting down the other person,” said 22-year-old Joe Blizzard, who watched with a crowd of 500 students at the University of Cincinnati. “As someone who is undecided, it was a little disappointing.” Fellow student Karim Aladmi, 21, was more forgiving. “It goes without saying that the knives were out,” he said. “I thought Obama had a strong performance, but Romney made him work for it. I was actually impressed by both sides.” With just 20 days left until

WASHINGTON — Once again, Hillary Clinton has demonstrated herself to be the classiest person in the room. No wonder she’s one of the most revered public figures in America. But she is a politician, the context by which all things must be judged — at least on second pass. The first pass goes as follows: She manned up. She took responsibility for the attacks at the Benghazi compound. Good for the secretary of state. Speaking from Peru on Monday, Clinton told CNN, “I take responsibility” for protecting diplomats. “What I want to avoid is some kind of political gotcha.” Which brings us to the second pass. There’s nothing like a preemptive act of courage, otherwise known as falling on one’s sword, to prevent a gotcha, particularly during a presidential campaign in which the challenger is trying to focus on security and/or intelligence failures that resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. This rendition seems to be the most popular among Republicans — so far. Alternatives include that Clinton is making herself a target so that Republicans will attack her and attract sympathetic women back to the Obama fold. Riiiiight. In the month since the

Hillary’s mea culpa

the election, polls show an extremely tight race nationally. While Republicans have made clear gains in recent days, the president leads in several polls of Wisconsin and Ohio. No Republican has won the White House without winning Ohio. In the sprint to Election Day, every aspect of the campaign seems to be taking on a fresh sense of urgency — the ads, the fundraising, the grass-roots mobilizing, the outreach to key voting blocs, particularly women. Both sides are pouring millions upon millions into TV ads in the battleground states, and independent groups are adding buckets more. The debate didn’t break a lot of new ground, although Romney signaled a shift in his stance on immigration. The GOP nominee previously had said he would veto legislation to provide a path to legalization for young illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.

But Tuesday night, he said such young people “should have a pathway to become a permanent resident of the United States.” As the debates unfold, early voting is already under way in many states, and the push to bank as many early ballots as possible is in overdrive. Democrats cheered when the Supreme Court on Tuesday cleared the way for Ohio voters to cast ballots on the three days before Election Day, rejecting a request by the state’s Republican elections chief and attorney general to get involved in a rancorous battle over early voting. Obama’s campaign and Ohio Democrats had sued state officials over changes in state law that took away the three days of voting for most people. All of the political maneuvering was little more than noise for more than 1.3 million Americans: They’ve already voted.

Point of View
attacks, a timeline of which shows a variety of explanations and backfilling, the word Benghazi has become Barack Obama’s WMD. What did he know and when did he know it? Mitt Romney came out swinging on 9/11, the day of the attacks, literally before the dust had settled. Now, Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte have issued a press release lauding Clinton’s gesture while pointing a finger at the White House. The senators noted several red flags that should have signaled the rising threat level in Benghazi. Among them: a bomb attack on the U.S. mission in April, another detonation outside the mission in June, and an assassination attempt on the British ambassador. “If the president was truly not aware of this rising threat level in Benghazi, then we have lost confidence in his national security team, whose responsibility it is to keep the president informed,” the senators said. They also questioned the White

House’s initial characterization of the attacks as a spontaneous protest around the now-famous (and ridiculous) anti-Islam video that set off demonstrations elsewhere, including at U.S. embassies in Egypt and Yemen. In fact, there were no apparent demonstrations in Benghazi on the day of the attack. In her remarks from Peru, Clinton blamed the fog of war for the confusion and the difficulty of getting reliable information, a theme that has become the crux of the Obama administration’s explanation. U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice has blamed poor intelligence for her own lack of awareness that greater security was needed in Benghazi. That is one hot potato. Clinton sensibly has recommended stepping back from politics and allowing the FBI investigation to proceed. But this sentiment, appealing as it is, requires a third pass. Who benefits from stepping back? And when, exactly, did faulty intelligence on the ground excuse the commander in chief from responsibility? Not recently that I can recall. It is a fact that the White House doesn’t have daily responsibility for embassy security. Neither the president nor the vice president was aware that there had been requests for additional security at the Benghazi consulate.

So, who knew what and when? Who dropped the ball? Who said there was yellowcake when there was none? Is this a political moment that shouldn’t be? Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, calling Obama’s handling of the situation “a policy of provocative weakness,” says Romney should exploit Benghazi for political gain. But this kind of bluster can backfire, as was the case when Romney criticized Obama before the facts were known. Leadership requires temperance. The purpose of the investigation shouldn’t be to affix blame but to strengthen weaknesses. Only our enemies benefit from our circular sniping. Which brings us to pass No. 4: Stevens went to Benghazi knowing the risks and died in the service of his country, the people of Libya and the greater good. It is tragic, but it is war. Our only conclusion at this point is that we don’t know what happened. But it is also clear that no one in the Obama administration knew what was going on either. We will see. Until then, it is fair and reasonable to entertain the notion that Hillary Clinton simply did the right thing. The nation benefits from her example.

LANDMARK

Loretta progressing
BY LOVINA EICHER Another chilly morning with the temperature dipping below 40. So far my garden hasn’t been hit with a killing frost. I am surprised because it has been quite cold on some mornings. Some places look like they did, though. Both my gardens are beside buildings so I wonder if they are protected from the cold a little more? The boys did pick a lot of my green tomatoes and my green and hot peppers just in case it frosted. The green tomatoes I will wrap in newspaper and put in the basement in the canning room. They seem to ripen slower that way and I think it makes them taste better. The green peppers were still doing so well that they picked three 5 gallon bucket fulls. We use the smaller ones by stuffing them with cream cheese and Colby cheese, then grill them with bacon just like we do jalapeno and banana peppers. The children prefer the green peppers as they are not hot at all. We still haven’t started our stove yet. Our coal comes on Saturday. Joe needs to get a new part on the stovepipe. He would like to get everything ready to start it tomorrow, tt will feel better to have the chill taken out of the house. Right now we just let the propane lights burn a little longer. They do put off a lot of heat. We bought a new gas light for the boys bedroom but something isn’t the right size so we need to exchange it. The boys haven’t had a light in their bedroom since the fire in May. They miss it more since it is getting darker quicker at night. It will also help heat their bedrooms more on chilly mornings. Saturday our family attended the wedding in Columbia City for Menno and Maggie. It was enjoyable and it was nice to see a lot of Joe’s aunts, uncles, and cousins that we don’t often see. Also met some of my readers and it was nice talking to them. Yesterday was spent driving the two hours to the children’s hospital and back to have both of Loretta’s casts removed. This can be an allday affair. It had been four weeks since the surgery but to Loretta it had seemed even longer having those heavy casts on. She now has air casts on her feet and legs up to her knees. She needs to wear these 24/7 and can only remove them to shower. She is allowed to start putting weight on her feet as tolerated. She stayed home from school today as she was having a lot of pain. I called the doctor and they said it is normal with this kind of surgery. The best thing to do is go slowly putting on a little weight at a time. The doctors also said heat or ice will relief the pain in elevating the legs. Right now she is elevating the the legs with the hot water bottle. Next week she will try to go back to school but she’ll take her wheelchair until she is used to the walking cast. She will also be fitted with AFO braces on both feet. Until those are ready, she will need to wear the air casts. A thank you to all for their prayers, cards, and encouragement throughout this surgery Sister Emma passed out sheets to family, friends, and the families in church and presented Loretta with a scrapbook. She has received many nice sheets and good ideas. Daughter Susan has started the laundry and I should go help her. It will be chilly for her to hang the clothes outside. Sun is out and there is a wind blowing so the clothes should dry. God’s blessings. It is pumpkin season, so try this delicious recipe! HOMEMADE PUMPKIN BREAD 3 1 /2 cups all-purpose flour 3 cups sugar 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 1 /2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 cups homemade pumpkin puree or 1-15 ounce can pumpkin puree 4 large eggs, beaten 2 /3 cup water 1 /3 cup vegetable oil 1 cup pecans, chopped Preheat the oven to 350. Grease and flour two 9 X 5 inch loaf pans. Knock out the excess flour. Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir with a whisk to blend. Stir in the pumpkin, eggs, water, oil, and pecans. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 1 hour.

Lady Knights oust Jeffcats Lady Green shuts out Crestview in volleyball sectional
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com OTTOVILLE — Crestview has had major success throughout the years in the OHSAA volleyball tournament, while Jefferson is trying to build a legacy in the second season. Those two teams — both with a lot of youthful players — met up Tuesday night in Ottoville’s L.W. Heckman Gymnasium in Division IV sectional action. The Lady Knights got off well in all three sets and the Lady Wildcats couldn’t quite answer as Crestview got the 25-18, 25-15, 25-14 sweep. “That’s been our pattern lately; getting off to slow starts and then fighting from behind. We seem to lack early intensity,” Jefferson coach Joy Early noted. “I felt we moved pretty well most of the match except when we fell behind early in the first and second sets but it’s hard to fight from behind the whole time. Still, I like how we battled and fought back; we made a game of it in the first.” For Crestview mentor Tammy Gregory, the good starts were needed. “We needed that; I only have three girls that have varsity tournament experience, so we needed good starts,” Gregory explained. “Usually, we like having the seed and the bye but having the first match was a blessing; we got the jitters out of the way early in the match today and as long as we stay in the tournament.” The Knights (16-7) got the first point of the match on a kill by junior Kirstin Hicks (9 kills, 9 digs, 3 aces) and never looked back, building an 8-1 edge on her ace. kills, 6 stuffs, 4 aces), senior Mykale Clifton (5 kills) and freshman Haley Helm (5 kills, 7 assists). The Knights spent the rest of the set adding onto its lead and a double-hit on set point put them up 2-0. The Knights got the first two points of the third set but the Lady ’Cats weren’t going to dig an early deep hole this time out. They played on even terms for at least the first third of the set but with the prowess of Trigg blocking and hitting and main setter Mackenzie Riggenbach (sophomore with 19 assists, 8 digs) using all her weapons, it was a matter of time. A hit off the block by Clifton ended the match. “I told the girls after the match of how proud I was of the improvement they have shown the last two seasons. We have come a long way in every phase,” Early added. “I only lose two seniors, Fallon and Caitlin (Landwehr), and they were the leaders that helped allow that improvement. Fallon in particular will be hard to replace because she does everything out there; we will need someone to step up to take her place and have everyone else step up.” Junior Rileigh Stockwell (4 kills, 11 digs), classmate Kamie Pulford (11 digs) and sophomore Brooke Culp (12 assists) contributed heavily to the Lady Wildcat cause. “Courtney really sets the tone for us at the net. She has had matches where she gets a lot of blocks and some where she doesn’t,” Gregory added. “When she does get a lot of touches, it sets the tone for everyone else; the girls feed off of that, especially when she gets stuffs.” The Knights will play top-seeded Kalida 6 p.m. Saturday.

OTTAWA — Nerves may have gotten the best of the Miller City boys soccer team during the first half of their Division III sectional semifinal versus Lincolnview Tuesday evening at Kalida. That changed in the second half once the Wildcats were able to get a goal. Once that happened, the Wildcats played a little looser and added to their lead as they defeated the Lancers 3-0. The win advances Miller City (10-7) to the sectional finals Thursday evening against top-seeded Archbold (16-0) at 5 p.m. Kalida and Ottoville play in the second game. Neither team was able to dent the back of the net the first half, although the Wildcats had some good scoring chances. Early in the second half, the Wildcats’ Jared Snyder

had a close range shot on-goal that Lancer goalie Mark Evans was able to grab. Minutes later, Miller City got on the scoreboard after a foul called on a Lancer player just outside of the box. On an indirect kick, Snyder touched the ball and Ross Kaufman blasted a shot past Evans for a 1-0 Miller City lead with 31:33 left in the contest. That was the goal the Wildcats needed to help them relax and play their game. “I could see the nerves tonight when we got here,” Miller City coach Tom Klear said. “I told them last night just start relaxing this morning, but nerves set in once we got off the bus. We were tight and we weren’t doing anything we were supposed to be doing. We weren’t communicating and it didn’t seem like we were playing like we can. The second half, we had an opening where we started to communicate, started to hustle and talk more, where we got some good passes

and good crosses. We played much better.” With the lead, the Wildcats could start to force the issue, which led to their second goal five and a half minutes later. As Snyder drove the inline, he was tripped in the box, which led to a penalty kick with 26 minutes left. Kaufman took the penalty kick and scored his second goal of the match. Kaufman nearly had a hat trick as he put a shot ongoal with 20 minutes left that Evans was able to save. Miller City’s final goal came with 17:20 left as Brent Riepenhoff scored when he tipped a pass past the Lincolnview goalie and into the net. While the Wildcat offense settled down in the second half, their defense continued to play well. After the Lancers had two shots on-goal the first half, they managed only one in the second half that Wildcat goalie Austin Lammers saved. Many of the Lancers’ shots were forced wide as the Miller City defense didn’t allow

Lady Lancers sweep Gophers

ELIDA - The Lincolnview Lady Lancer volleyball team has struggled with consistency throughout the season. That was not a problem Tuesday evening in the Division IV sectional opener at Elida High School, however, as Lincolnview dominated Ridgemont from start to finish en route to a 25-13, 25-15, 25-20 sweep. “We finished. We’ve had a hard time playing in games two and three all season. It was good that we were able to come through and finish it - finish in three games instead of four or five,” said Lady Lancer coach Heather Crow. Third-seeded Lincolnview jumped on the seventh-seeded Golden Gophers early in the first set, jumping out to a 9-3 lead and forcing a Ridgemont timeout. A kill by sophomore Devann Springer and a tip point from junior Ashley McClure ran the Lincolnview lead to 12-4 out of the break. Later in the set,

after a McClure ace and a Ridgemont error, the Golden Gophers took their second timeout, trailing 17-8. McClure picked up another ace directly out of the break and junior Kelsey Mohr added a kill to run the Lady Lancer lead to 19-8. Ridgemont couldn’t recover and a kill by senior Lauren Calvert sealed the first-set win. McClure opened the second set with a kill but Ridgemont responded to a 2-1 lead on a kill from senior Toshia Vanbuskirk. The teams then fought to ties at 2, 3, 4, 9 and 10, before a McClure kill returned the lead to Lincolnview. With Lincolnview leading 13-12 later in the set, the Lady Lancers went on a 5-0 run which was capped by a tip point from senior Jodie Doner. Lincolnview outscored the Golden Gophers 7-3 throughout the remainder of the set and came away with a 2-0 lead. Sloppy play by the Lady Lancers allowed Ridgemont to take a 5-1 lead to open the third set but an emphatic kill by Doner sparked a Lincolnview

rally which saw them force a tie at eight and force a Golden Gopher timeout. After a tie at 11, three consecutive Ridgemont errors allowed the Lady Lancers to separate themselves but the Golden Gophers stayed close behind. A Lincolnview attack error cut their lead to 17-16 but they answered with Doner and Springer kills. A Calvert kill finally gave Lincolnview match point and McClure sealed the match with a kill. Crow explained that the Lady Lancer serving was a little off but they will trade a few more errors for aggressiveness: “Our service was a little bit tough. We missed more serves than we’re comfortable with but the girls will focus. I think it’s because we told them to be aggressive. They were being more aggressive tonight, so we expected more errors.” McClure and Doner led the Lady Lancers with 10 kills each. Senior Whitney Miller had 33 digs, while McClure had five aces. Mohr had 19 assists and Springer added 17. The win improves

them a lot of room to get quality shots. “I think our defense did a great job, especially the second half,” Klear said. “They got one shot on-goal. We contested everything and didn’t give them anything too close.” While Lincolnview coach Mark McCleery was pleased with his team’s first-half performance against the Wildcats, he felt his team was taking too many chances the second half that hurt them. “I was ecstatic with the first half,” McCleery said. “We got into some bad habits the second half with sliding and I think that gave them the penalty kick. Plus, it makes us a slower team when we are on the ground. All in all, we played a great first half but I was disappointed with the second half.” The Lancer offense suffered just a bit Tuesday evening as one of their starting midfielders was injured in a contest Saturday. The player was out on the field but not 100 percent, which limited his effectiveness for the sectional

OTTOVILLE — Ottoville’s girls soccer team had a veteran — and deep — unit coming back in 2012 for head man Tim Kimmet. Crestview was going to be young and inexperienced for head coach Melissa Mefferd. That played out Tuesday afternoon at Bob Kaple Memorial Stadium in Ottoville during the teams’ Division III sectional tussle as the Lady Green dominated the Lady Knights 4-0. Though the Lady Green (10-5-1) controlled the orb all but for a few moments, as well as the shots (27-3 on-goal), the Knights (2-12-3) battled and held their own. The Green and Gold attacked the goal with relish the entire way but either Crestview senior keeper Darcci Swager (10 saves) came up with the stops on those shots (and even snuffed out several before they were taken) or her defenders, especially senior Clare Mefferd, got feet on those tries and knocked them out of bounds (8 corner kicks). The first — and only goal — of the first half came at 33:04. Lady Green sophomore Haley Landwehr crossed from the right wing — eight yards out — but the orb hit off a defender and Swager had no chance in keeping the ball from finding the left side of the cords for a 1-0 edge. The home team almost made it 2-0 at 28:55. Junior Kendra Eickholt got a 1-on1 behind the defense in the center and her 10-yarder hit the crossbar and went out of bounds. At 25:30, Landwehr tried a 6-yard header and Swager got the denial. With just two ticks left in the half, senior Kendra Koester got a look from the right side of the 18-yard box from eight yards away and hit the outside of the post and out of bounds. “We had played Crestview earlier and we knew that they were going to be tough to score on. They are always tough on defense, especially with Mefferd back there,” Kimmet said. “I don’t know if we were a bit nervous at the start but we simply didn’t execute offensively; we should have had a few more scores.” For Mefferd, she was actually pleased at the half. “When we were only down a goal at the half — and that was on an own-goal — I told the girls how pleased I was. They battled the entire way and I am so proud of them,” she explained. “We don’t have what you call a lot of raw talent but we have so much heart and we’re feisty; these girls kept working hard all year, no matter what was going on, and gave me everything they

had all year and especially today. I couldn’t be prouder of them.” Kimmet moved senior keeper Rachel Beining — who faced no shots the first half — up front for the second half. Just 44 ticks into the half, Beining crossed to senior Rachel Turnwald from the left side to the post and she 1-touched the orb past Swager from six yards and a 2-0 edge. Once again, Ottoville took advantage of its better depth and health to continue to attack. At 35:10, Eickholt fired from the left wing and hit the outside of the near post. Crestview got its first effort on-goal at 23:20 when sophomore Karlee Trammell fired a 14-yarder from the left wing that hit off a defender, then the near post and out of bounds. Crestview continued to battle and tried to cling to hope but at 21:30, those hopes were all but dashed. Turnwald crossed from the right side to the left post, where Beining was waiting; she passed inside to Landwehr and her 8-yarder found the right side of the twine for a 3-0 edge. At 19:56, Ottoville closed the scoring. In front of the goal, Beining made a quick touch pass to Eickholt and her 8-yarder found the left side of the net for a 4-0 margin. At 9:27, the Knights had another chance when Mefferd launched a 25-yard free kick; junior keeper Danielle Trenkamp deflected the ball away and senior Aly Williamson tried to follow on the doorstep of the right post but a defender deflected the ball. Injuries also became part of the story as Crestview sophomore Lauren Schmid was hurt at 34:53 of the second half and walked off but returned later. At 12:36, Ottoville senior Marissa Pohlabel was helped off with a leg injury. At 5:45, Mefferd was shook up but left the pitch under her own power. “We’ve done that before, putting Rachel in the field. She’s such a good goalie that it is a bit of a risk,” Kimmet added. “It’s not that Danielle isn’t a good goalkeeper but she doesn’t have the experience. Rachel just does a nice job of putting the ball into the 18. You could also tell that their lack of numbers caught up to them but they played hard.” Coach Mefferd concurred. “We started with 17 and due to injuries and such, we were playing with 14 today. The girls gave everything but it does take a toll,” she added. “It’s hard when you can’t keep fresh legs in there against a deeper and talented team like Ottoville.” Ottoville battles PCL nemesis Kalida 5 p.m. Saturday.

Lincolnview to 9-11 on the season. Ridgemont drops to 2-17 on the campaign. The win for the Lady Lancers matches them up with top-seeded Ada (10-11) in Saturday’s sectional championship game. “The girls are motivated; they had their eyes on a goal, which was to play Ada again,” Crow added. “We got beat by them in five (in the tournament) last year, so, it’s their goal. They’re been practicing really well, so hopefully the intensity continues. ‘Go all out or go home;’ that’s the girls’ mentality right now.” ---Cougars advance with 4-set win over Wapakoneta LIMA - Volleyball, more than any other sport, is a game of momentum.

Tuesday’s second match between St. Mary’s and Defiance, a 5-set winner over St. Marys. After splitting the first two sets, the Redskins (13-8) were dominating the third set behind their superior hitters: Megan Hayzlett, Carli Sammons and Lyndsi Whitmore. However, with Wapak leading 16-6, the momentum swung gradually in Van Wert’s direction as some errors began to creep into the Redskin offense. Wapak still led 21-15 but the Cougs reeled off five in a row (double-contact violation by the Redskins, push kill by Alexis Dowdy and three Wapak serve-receive errors on the offerings of Riley Jones). A tip by Hayzlett stopped the bleeding briefly but the ensuing serve went into the net. The Redskins mishandled two straight Alexa Dunlap serves to put the Cougars up 23-22 but Dunlap then served one long to tie it at 23. A tip kill by Dowdy put Van Wert within a point of the set and that’s when the play of the match occurred. Hayzlett appeared to have tied it at 24 with another vicious slam but

Van Wert’s Sydney Collins lunged and managed to get a hand on the ball, keeping it alive for Claire Gamble, who bumped it over. A Wapak kill attempt then went long and the Cougs had the se, 25-23. Van Wert coach Vicki Smith had called both of her timeouts early in the third set (at 1-6 and 6-12). The second timeout may have paid off, though not immediately. Per Smith: “I told the girls, ‘Come on, girls -- you’ve got to have confidence in your own passing. We can do it. One point at a time.’ Then they just started, one point at a time. It was the passing that we were struggling with for a while. They (the Redskins) hit a lot of topspin serves and we struggled with that in the beginning.” Van Wert kept the momentum in the fourth set, never trailing. The Cougs rolled to a 13-6 lead behind setterturned-hitter Amanda Coplin. Wapak got as close as three at 16-13 and 17-14 but kills by Coplin, Collins and Jones (on a push) then stretched the lead back to six; the Cougs coasted from there. See ROUNDUP, page 7

Tigers close in on pennant with 2-1 win over Yanks
By NOAH TRISTER The Associated Press
DETROIT — Justin Verlander was done for the night and for the first time all game, the New York Yankees looked threatening at the plate. Mark Teixeira singled, then Robinson Cano followed suit for his first hit in 30 at-bats. Up stepped Raul Ibanez, who had already rescued New York a couple times this postseason with dramatic home runs in the late innings. Reliever Phil Coke struck out Ibanez and the Detroit Tigers held on for a tense 2-1 victory over the Yankees on Tuesday night, taking a 3-0 lead in the AL championship series. After halting New York’s rally in the ninth inning, the Tigers are a win away from their second pennant in seven years. Detroit is in this position because of a stellar starting rotation that hasn’t needed much help from the bullpen or the offense. “You see somebody go out there and have a good game and you want to one-up that guy. He is your friend, I know, but it still gives you the urge to go out there and do better,” Verlander said. “I think that’s a great thing when you can get your entire rotation doing that and I think we’re starting to click at the right time.” Seeking their first World Series title since 1984, the Tigers were on a historic pitching run even before their ace took the mound Tuesday. With the exception of a 4-run ninth against Detroit closer Jose Valverde in Game 1, New York had been shut out the entire series. Yankees manager Joe Girardi benched Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher for Game 3 but it was no use. Verlander allowed only a pair of singles by Ichiro Suzuki and a leadoff homer by Eduardo Nunez in the ninth. Delmon Young hit a solo home run for the Tigers and Miguel Cabrera had an RBI double. Nunez’s homer snapped a scoreless streak by Detroit starters of 30 1/3 innings. That’s a record for a single postseason, according to STATS LLC. The previous mark of 29 innings was set by Oakland in 1974. “You don’t want to be in this situation but this is the game of baseball,” Cano said. “All you can do is not put our head down and just prepare ourselves for (today). It’s not over yet.” New York sends C.C. Sabathia (15-6) to the mound in Game 4 and Detroit counters with Max Scherzer (16-7). Verlander fell just short of a second straight shutout after stopping the Athletics in the decisive fifth game of the division series. He struck out only three but kept New York off the scoreboard until the homer to left field by Nunez, the first run allowed by the powerful right-hander since he gave up a leadoff homer to Coco Crisp in Game 1 of the ALDS. Nunez was at shortstop because Derek Jeter broke his ankle in Game 1 and will miss the rest of the season. Verlander got Brett Gardner on a tapper before he was lifted after 132 pitches, one shy of the career high he set in Game 5 of last year’s ALCS against Texas. “Normally, I guess you don’t take Secretariat out in the final furlong but that was pretty much it for him,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. Coke came in and retired Suzuki before allowing 2-out hits to Teixeira and Cano. Ibanez, who hit tying and winning homers in the same game in the ALDS against Baltimore and tied Game 1 of this series with a homer in the ninth, struck out swinging at a breaking ball to end it. Yankees starter Phil Hughes was lifted in the fourth because of a stiff back but right now it’s the Yankees’ hitting that has them on the brink of elimination. New York is batting .182 for the series and .200 during the postseason. Rodriguez also was benched for Game 5 against

An early retreat? Then you missed out on comeback
By RUSTY MILLER The Associated Press Anyone who left the Defiance-Shawnee game early is kicking themselves. After Jaylin Thomas ran for a 55-yard touchdown for Shawnee and the conversion failed, the Indians led 40-28 with just 1:42 left. Defiance narrowed the gap to 40-35 on Joe Keween’s 30-yard scoring pass to Trey Guilliam with 19 seconds left. Of course, the Bulldogs kicked onside and Santana Villareal recovered. Keween completed two passes to get the ball to the 10 with 6 ticks left before hitting TE Ryan Voll for the TD with 2.1 seconds remaining. Austin Hancock added the PAT in what was a 42-40 victory for Defiance.
a 20-yard TD pass with 8 seconds left. FAST STARTS: Columbiana Crestview had the ball only 45 seconds of the first quarter and still led North Jackson Jackson-Milton 28-0 on the way to a 63-7 win Friday; and Jerry Brown rushed for three TDs, Cody Wilson for two and Dalton Buck for one in McComb’s win over Arcadia — in the first quarter — building a 42-0 lead on the way to a 64-0 win. HOOPS TO GRIDIRON: In his first year playing football since he was a freshman, Jordan Lauf is making a big impact at Napoleon. The University of Toledo basketball recruit set a school record for TD receptions in a season with 11 after catching a pair in Friday’s 35-34 overtime win over Perrysburg in a battle of state-ranked teams. In that win, Lauf blocked a punt to set up one TD and intercepted a pass to set up another. The 6-5 Lauf also punts (37.5-yard average) and kicks off. FLY LIKE AN EAGLE: Colby Speice threw for 337 yards and five TDs while rushing for 61 yards and two scores in Haviland Wayne Trace’s 48-35 victory over Defiance Tinora; Jack Schaaf of unbeaten Springboro passed for three scores and ran for three more in a 49-26 defeat of Miamisburg; and David Roberts was 7-for-7 passing for 219 yards and three TDs and running for another in Xenia’s 55-27 win over West Carrollton. BULLETIN BOARD MATERIAL: Coldwater’s 27-0 win over Marion Local gave coach Chip Otten at least a share of his first Midwest Athletic Conference title — and third in the family, since Chip’s father Barney Otten led Coldwater to back-to-back titles in 1975 and 1976; St. Marys Memorial (0-8) tries to avoid its first winless season ever when it plays at Van Wert (0-8) Friday; Jesse Bray had TD receptions of 31 and 24 yards and returned a kickoff 99 yards. Huber Heights Wayne beat Centerville 26-10; Hamler Patrick Henry lost 55-21 to Archbold, marking the first time since 2000 that the Patriots had lost consecutive games in the same season; and Berlin Center Western Reserve’s Tim Cooper put on a show in his last home game, scoring four times, running for 122 yards on 14 carries, catching four passes for 109 yards and made a diving interception in the end zone to beat Salineville Southern 28-6. HE’S BAA-AACK: Jordan Campbell was lifting weights last April when he broke his left humerus bone while attempting to bench press 315 pounds. The junior made it back in time for the high school football season and has shown no ill effects. He rushed for 224 yards and four TDs on 15 carries in Ontario’s 48-14 win over Buckeye Central, giving him 1,535 yards and 23 touchdowns so far this season. WHEELS AND VALLEYS: Wheelersburg (7-1) travels to Lucasville Valley (8-0) Friday night.

Baltimore after being pulled for pinch-hitters in the previous two games. A-Rod is 3-for-23 (.130) without an RBI or extra-base hit this postseason, his latest October flop. The numbers are especially ugly against right-handers: 0-for-18 with 12 strikeouts. The 3-time AL MVP was not available to reporters before or after the game. Hughes matched Verlander in a scoreless duel until Young led off the Detroit fourth with a line drive over the wall in left field. It was his seventh homer in the last two postseasons — he’s already the Tigers’ career leader in that department. Andy Dirks followed with a walk and Hughes was pulled with an 0-2 count on Jhonny Peralta. David Phelps came on and got out of the inning but the Yankees now have a pitching injury to go along with all their hitting problems. The Yankees kept it close, dodging several Detroit rallies. The Tigers added an unearned run in the fifth when Eric Chavez — Rodriguez’s replacement at third — misplayed a grounder for an error. Cabrera, the AL Triple Crown winner, followed with an RBI double. Cabrera has a 16-game hitting streak in LCS play, breaking a tie for that record with Manny Ramirez and Pete Rose, according to STATS.

Van Wert had all the momentum at the beginning, leading the entire way in the first set behind the hitting of Dowdy, Dunlap and Collins. After leading 9-5 in the second set, however, the momentum turned 180 degrees as the Wapakoneta offense began to click. Taking advantage of a slew of free balls from the Cougar side of the net, the Redskins’ leapers slammed away on a 20-5 run to seize control and win the set. Piling up big numbers for Van Wert were Coplin (15 assists, 11 digs, 7 kills), Collins (17 digs), Dowdy (9 kills), Jones (15 assists), Dunlap (13 digs, 6 kills) and Gamble (10 digs). Van Wert had beaten Wapakoneta in five sets in a Western Buckeye League contest on October 4. ---Manchester sneaks out of Bluffton with 1-0 win over Beavers BLUFFTON — The Bluffton University women’s soccer team was defeated 1-0 by Manchester University on Tuesday. The Beavers fell to 3-9-1 and 1-3-1 in the Heartland Conference, while the Spartans improved to 7-5-3 and 3-2-1 in the HCAC. The Beavers fought hard throughout the first half, keeping the Spartans from finding the back of the net. After the first 45 minutes of back-andforth play, the half ended in a scoreless tie. The match remained deadlocked until minute 64 when the Spartans drilled the first and only goal of the afternoon when Brandy Crouse made a nice move down the left sideline and connected with Katelyn Barta in front of the net for a 1-0 Spartan lead. Bluffton fought back, firing off shot after shot, but the Beavers were unable to capitalize as Manchester wrapped

up a 1-0 victory over the home squad. Bluffton piled up a 22-9 advantage in shots, including 13-2 in the second period. They also led the way in corner kicks (7-2). Both teams committed nine fouls during the match. Senior Maddie Moore (Linn Grove, Ind./South Adams) finished with three more shots (12-9) than the entire Manchester team. Junior Katie Steenrod (Sidney) followed with three shots and Megan Moreo (Spencerville/ Delphos Jefferson) added two shots, one on-goal. Bluffton returns to action on Saturday in hosting Franklin College. The contest is slated for noon as the Beavers look to get back in the win column. ------

Nearhood honored by Heartland Conference BLUFFTON — For the second consecutive year, Bluffton University sophomore Caitlyn Nearhood (Clyde) has been named Honorable Mention AllHeartland Conference following a solid campaign for the Beavers. She held the first

singles and first doubles (with Melissa Hostetler) slots all season for Bluffton. Nearhood was also named to the Heartland Conference All-Sportsmanship Team, sweeping the Bluffton conference awards this year. The Beavers wrapped up their second season back with a 0-14 mark (0-8 HCAC).

T-Birds oust Bearcats in boys soccer tourney
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com LIMA — With only 13 players on its roster — eight of them freshmen — Spencerville’s boys soccer team (co-ed) knew it was going to have a rough year in 2012. Lima Central Catholic was going to end it Monday evening under the lights of Lima Stadium, whipping the Bearcats (0-15-0) 8-2 in the Division III Lima District first round. The Thunderbirds (10-5-2) scored all eight of its goals in the first half. “We’re just so young; we have to play so many freshmen,” Spencerville first-year coach Josh Hobbs explained. “Plus, we don’t have the numbers right now. The good thing is that I only lose one senior and everyone else is back. We’re expecting to add — hopefully — eight or nine as freshmen next year and in our fifth through eighth grades, we have 40. We had 12 get varsity experience and played in the tournament; we need to look forward from here.” The first goal came just 23 ticks into it as Sean Daley dribbled up the right side and put in an 8-yarder past Bearcat sophomore keeper Byron Gay (9 saves vs. 18 shots ongoal in the first half). It was another 4:24 before Jacob Williams headed one in off a corner kick from the left side (by Matt McNamara) for a 2-0 lead. The T-Birds netted six more in the final 35 minutes of the first half. At 28:42, Jose Dominguez made a run down the right side and fired a 14-yarder. At the 27:34 mark, Daley shot a wideopen 14-yarder from the left wing for a 4-0 edge. Chris Walter put his name in the scoring book at 22:32 off a deflected shot struck by McNamara. Joe Cunningham continued the assault — via a cross from the left side from Ben Stechschulte to the right post — at 21:2 for a 6-0 spread. Stechschulte — who was the starting goalkeeper but was replaced 8-plus minutes into the match by Kyle Smith — put back a deflected corner kick from the left side by Connor AbouJaoude at 14:20. LCC’s final tally came at 11:20 by Daniel Gustaesson as he fired a 25-yard laser from the left post that deflected off a defender and into the twine. Spencerville got its first shot ongoal at 10:18 when junior Ashley King fired a 15-yarder that Smith grabbed. The Bearcats tried again at 7:15 when lone senior Austin Oehlhof shot 20-yarder but Smith (6 saves vs. 11 shots on-goal, many of them deflected away by defenders) knocked it aside. Spencerville got its first goal with 4:00 left in the half when Oehlhof — courtesy of a lead pass from freshman David Wisher — 1-touched a 15-yarder by Smith from the left post. LCC did not attempt a shot in the second half — as instructed by their head coach Bryan Burkholder — instead, working on their possession game. The Bearcats had some tires to score the second half: at 36:47 on a 45-yarder by Gay (now in the field) and at 35:00 when Oehlhof launched a 20-yarder; but Smith rejected both. The Bearcats ended the scoring at 1:52 when Oehlhof put in his final score of his high school soccer career, a 10-yard putback of a ricochet on Gay’s effort. “We will be back here Saturday against Liberty-Benton and we just decided at halftime to use this as a practice. You don’t get the chance that often to practice on this turf,” Burkholder added. “We realized early on in the match that it was a mismatch — Spencerville gave everything but the numbers game was in our favor. We tried to use our subs as much as possible and still not fall into bad habits.” LCC will play the topseeded Eagles at 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

The Herald — 9A

Bigelow turns hobby into business Delphos animal hospital
By Stacy Taff staff@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Delphos welcomed Michelle Bigelow’s Starlight Designs, located at 111 West Third Street on Oct. 8. Those who recognize the address as Pohlman & Bigelow Tax Service can rest easy, Bigelow says the office is still open for business. “The tax office is still open. We still have business clients but we aren’t as busy in the off-season,” she said. “Starlight Designs is something that’s been my hobby and my passion for a long time. I’ve got it all set up in the front of the office now but once tax season starts again I’ll break it down and make it an office again with maybe a few displays.” Bigelow’s Starlight Designs encompasses a range of products including handcrafted jewelry, purses and candles. “I also do winebottle art, taggies for infants and hairbands,” she said. “I also do memorial beads from roses but those are special order because the customer brings me the rose petals.” The name Starlight Designs holds special meaning for Bigelow and commemorates how she got started with her products. “I got started more than 10 years ago and it was just something I did for me,” she said. “I would always do it at night after I’d gotten my son to bed, when I had some time for myself. Whether it was a purse or a piece of jewelry I’d always joke to myself, ‘this is my starlight design for tonight.’ It started as a hobby and just kind of grew from there. People would see me wearing something I made and ask about it.” Before she dedicated her storefront to Starlight Designs, Bigelow says she found other ways to get some exposure. “I did a lot of booths at farmers markets, just as a way to help get people downtown and help support some local businesses,” she said. “My friends talked me into doing a craft show, too. I didn’t have enough stock made and ended up selling out of almost everything and that was really exciting for me.” A few of the items Bigelow makes were added to her product list for practical reasons. “I was sick of buying candles and then having them smell for two days and then only burn halfway down,” she said. “So I experimented with candle-making and through trial and error, I found a formula I liked that keeps the scent until the end and burns all the way down to the bottom. “One thing I’ve been working with a lot lately is guitar strings and guitar pics,” Bigelow continued. “My fiance Mike is a musician, he’s a guitar player and vocalist with The Dogz, so there are guitar strings and Stacy Taff photo pic all over the house. I got Michelle Bigelow, owner of Starlight Designs, stands by the idea to make some bracelets out of them and it just her store front at 111 West Third Street. kinda grew from there.

Earth-sized planet found just outside solar system
By SETH BORENSTEIN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — European astronomers say that just outside our solar system they’ve found a planet that’s the closest you can get to Earth in location and size. It is the type of planet they’ve been searching for across the Milky Way galaxy and they found it circling a star right next door — 25 trillion miles away. But the Earth-like planet is so hot its surface may be like molten lava. Life cannot survive the 2,200 degree heat of the planet, so close to its star that it circles it every few days. The astronomers who found it say it’s likely there are other planets circling the same star, a little farther away where it may be cool enough for water and life. And those planets might fit the not-too-hot, not-too-cold description sometimes call the Goldilocks Zone. That means that in the star system Alpha Centauri B, a just-right planet could be closer than astronomers had once imagined. It’s so close that from some southern places on Earth, you can see Alpha Centauri B in the night sky without a telescope. But it’s still so far that a trip there using current technology would take tens of thousands of years. But the wow factor of finding such a planet so close has some astronomers already talking about how to speed up a 25 trillionmile rocket trip there. Scientists have already started pressuring NASA and the European Space Agency to come up with missions to send something out that way to get a look at least. The research was released online Tuesday in the journal Nature. There has been a European-U.S. competition to find the nearest and most Earthlike exoplanets — planets outside our solar system. So far scientists have found 842 of them, but think they number in the billions. While the newly discovered planet circles Alpha Centauri B, it’s part of a system of three stars: Alpha Centauri A, B and the slightly more distant Proxima Centauri. Systems with two or more stars are more common than single stars like our sun, astronomers say. This planet has the smallest mass — a measurement of weight that doesn’t include gravity — that has been found outside our solar system so far. With a mass of about 1.1 times the size of Earth, it is strikingly similar in size. Stephane Udry of the Geneva Observatory, who heads the European planet-hunting team, said this means “there’s a very good prospect of detecting a planet in the habitable zone that is very close to us.” And one of the European team’s main competitors, Geoff Marcy of the University of California Berkeley, gushed even more about the scientific significance. “This is an historic discovery,” he wrote in an email. “There could well be an Earth-size planet in that Goldilocks sweet spot, not too cold and not too hot, making Alpha Centauri a compelling target to search for intelligent life.” Harvard planet-hunter David Charbonneau and others used the same word to describe the discovery: “Wow.” Charbonneau said when it comes to looking for interesting exoplanets “the single most important consideration is the distance from us to the star” and this one is as close as you can get. He said astronomers usually impress the public by talking about how far away things are, but this is not, at least in cosmic terms. Alpha Centauri was the first place the private Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence program looked in its decade-long hunt for

Texas landowners take a rare stand against Big Oil Armed posse patrols timber
SUMNER, Texas (AP) — Oil has long lived in harmony with farmland and cattle across the Texas landscape, a symbiosis nurtured by generations and built on an unspoken honor code that allowed agriculture to thrive while oil was extracted. Proud Texans have long welcomed the industry because of the cash it brings to sustain agriculture, but also see its presence as part of their patriotic duty to help wean the United States off “foreign” oil. So the answer to companies that wanted to build pipelines has usually been simple: Yes. Enter TransCanada. As the company pursues construction of a controversial 1,179-mile-long cross-country pipeline meant to bring Canadian tar sands oil to South Texas refineries, it’s finding opposition in the unlikeliest of places: oil-friendly Texas, a state that has more pipelines snaking through the ground than any other. In the minds of some landowners approached by TransCanada for land, the company has broken an unspoken code. Nearly half the steel TransCanada is using is not Americanmade and the company won’t promise to use local workers exclusively; it can’t guarantee the oil will remain in the United States. It has snatched land. Possibly most egregious: They’ve behaved like arrogant foreigners, unworthy of operating in Texas. To fight back, insulted Texas landowners are filing dozens of lawsuits, threatening to further delay a project that has already encountered many obstacles. Others are allowing activists to go on their land to stage protests. Several have been arrested. “We’ve fought wars for it. We stood our ground at the Alamo for it. There’s a lot of reasons that Texans are very proud of their land and proud when you own land that you are the master of that land and you control that land,” said Julia Trigg Crawford, who is fighting the condemnation of a parcel of her family’s 650-acre Red’Arc Farm in Sumner, about 115 miles northeast of Dallas. Oil and agriculture have lived in peace in part because a one-time payment from a pipeline company or monthly royalties from a production rig can help finance a ranch or farm that struggle today to turn a profit from agriculture. The oil giants also respected landowners’ fierce Texas independence, even sometimes drilling in a different yard or rerouting a pipeline to ensure easy access to the minerals below. TransCanada is different. For one, it has sought and received court permission to condemn land when property owners didn’t agree to an easement. “This is a foreign company,” Crawford said. “Most people believe that as this product gets to the Houston area and is refined, it’s probably then going to be shipped outside the United States. So if this product is not going to wind up as gasoline or diesel fuel in your vehicles or mine then what kind of energy independence is that creating for us?” Activists have handcuffed themselves to machinery. A group has moved into a grove of trees on a TransCanada easement. A 78-year-old great-grandmother, Eleanor Fairchild, whose late husband worked in the oil industry, spent a night in jail after trespassing — along with actress Daryl Hannah of “Splash” fame — on land condemned on her 425-acre farm. On Monday, eight others were arrested for their protest activities. TransCanada’s pipeline, some landowners say, is more worrisome than those built by other companies because of the tar sands oil the company wants to transport. They point to an 800,000-gallon spill of mostly tar sands oil in Michigan’s Kalamazoo River in 2010. It took Enbridge, the company that owns that pipeline, 17 hours to detect the rupture, and the cleanup is still incomplete. With a pipeline, landowners give up control of the land for a one-time check, risking a spill that could contaminate their land or water for years. It’s a risk many are willing to take in exchange for cash — to a point. Some say the risk of a spill now is too high to cooperate. Others want guarantees TransCanada will take full responsibility for a spill. Many just want respect.

radio signals that signify alien intelligent life. Nothing was found, but that doesn’t mean nothing is there, said SETI Institute astronomer Seth Shostak. The European team spent four years using the European Southern Observatory in Chile to look for planets at Alpha Centauri B and its sister stars Alpha Centauri A and Proxima Centauri. They used a technique that finds other worlds by looking for subtle changes in a star’s speed as it races through the galaxy. Part of the problem is that the star is so close and so bright — though not as bright as the sun — that it made it harder to look for planets, said study lead author Xavier Dumusque of the Geneva Observatory. One astronomer who wasn’t part of the research team, wondered in a companion article in Nature if the team had enough evidence to back such an extraordinary claim. But other astronomers said they had no doubt and Udry said the team calculated that there was only a 1-in-1,000 chance that they were wrong about the planet and that something else was causing the signal they saw. Finding such a planet close by required a significant stroke of good luck, said University of California Santa Cruz astronomer Greg Laughlin.

land in sheriff’s place
O’BRIEN, Ore. (AP) — There’s no room in the county jail for burglars and thieves. And the sheriff’s department in a vast, rural corner of southwest Oregon has been reduced by budget cuts to three deputies on patrol eight hours a day, five days a week. But people in this traditionally self-reliant section of timber country aren’t about to raise taxes to put more officers on the road. Instead, some folks in Josephine County, larger than the state of Rhode Island, are taking matters into their own hands — mounting flashing lights on their trucks and strapping pistols to their hips to guard communities themselves. Others have put together a virtual neighborhood watch, using Facebook to share tips and information. “I believe in standing up for myself rather than waiting for the government to do something for me,” said Sam Nichols, a retired marina manager. Nichols has organized a posse of about a dozen fed-up residents who have started patrolling the small community of O’Brien, which has about 750 residents. “We call ourselves the CAC Patrol, Citizens Against Crime,” he said. Separately, a retired sheriff’s deputy in a community about 10 miles away has started a Facebook page called “To Catch a Thief,” an open group that has nearly 1,200 members who post reports of crimes that aren’t priorities for the county sheriff’s office. “In a rural community like this, we all know each other, and we’re all related,” said Carol Dickson, who started the group about three months ago and posts regularly. “People know who’s doing this,” she said of the property crimes around Cave Junction,

Big tobacco: corrective statements go too far
By FREDERIC J. FROMMER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Tobacco companies are urging a federal judge to reject the government’s proposed industry-financed corrective statements, calling them “forced public confessions.” The Justice Department countered that the statements need to be strong enough to protect people from future false statements made by cigarette makers. The statements include admissions that the companies lied about the dangers of smoking. U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler, who is hearing the case, has already said she wants the industry to pay for corrective statements in various types of ads. Although she has not made a decision on what the statements will say, she said at Monday’s hearing that she doesn’t have to take the government’s proposed statements word-forword, and will come up with “modifications.” In 2006, in a case the government brought in 1999 under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, Kessler ruled that America’s largest cigarette makers concealed the dangers of smoking for decades. The proposed statements by the cigarette-makers would become the remedy to ensure the companies don’t repeat the violation. In the 2006 ruling, which totaled more than 1,600 pages, Kessler wrote that the tobacco industry “survives, and profits, from selling a highly addictive product which causes diseases that lead to a staggering number of deaths per year, an immeasurable amount of human suffering and economic loss, and a profound burden on our national health care system.” The Justice Department’s proposed statements would cover areas such as the addictiveness of nicotine, the lack of health benefit from “low tar,” “ultra-light” and “mild” cigarettes, and the negative health effects of second-hand smoke. One example: “For decades, we denied that we controlled the level of nicotine delivered in cigarettes. Here’s the truth: Cigarettes are a finely-tuned nicotine delivery device designed to addict people.” Noel Francisco, an attorney representing R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., one of the companies challenging the statements, said that they violate an appeals court decision which held that any corrective statements must be purely factual and uncontroversial. Francisco, who was speaking on behalf of several tobacco companies, including Philip Morris USA, the nation’s largest tobacco maker, took issue with the “finely-tuned” statement. “That’s not an objective description of what a cigarette is,” he said. In July, a federal appeals court rejected efforts by the tobacco companies to overrule Kessler’s ruling requiring corrective statements. The companies had argued that a 2009 law that gave the Food and Drug Administration authority over the industry eliminated “any reasonable likelihood” that they would commit future RICO viola-

tions. So now the companies are trying to limit the scope of the statements, which they have said are designed to “shame and humiliate” them. They are arguing for factual statements that include the health effects and addictive qualities of smoking. Francisco argued that would be sufficient to prevent any fraud by the industry. “It undermines our ability to do a flip-flop in the future,” he said, adding that “confessional pejorative language is unnecessary.” But Justice Department lawyer Daniel K. CraneHirsch said that tobacco companies would “love” generic factual statements because it would not include the industry’s record of deception. “These companies don’t want people to know what they have done ... They would like to erase history,” he said. “The purpose here is not to humiliate,” he added, but to “inoculate” people against future false statements by the industry.

a town of nearly 2,000 people about 30 miles from the county seat of Grants Pass. “They are getting tired of it,” Dickson said. “They are speaking up, and they are saying, ‘Enough.”’ Josephine County Sheriff Gil Gilbertson says he’s glad for the help but warns that law enforcement is dangerous work. “They need to really understand there are consequences that can be very costly, physically as well as legally,” he said, explaining that volunteers could get sued or shot if they pull a gun on someone or make a false arrest. “Most of them haven’t had what I feel is an adequate level of training to do that they do,” he said. “But if they serve as eyes and ears and only report what they see to law enforcement, I think they can keep themselves at a safe level.” Policing expert Dennis Kenney, a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, says neighborhood watch efforts can be positive but turn into problems when volunteers “decide that instead of supplementing law enforcement, they are going to replace law enforcement. Then you cross potentially into vigilantism.” Kenney said vigilantes tend to get “out of control — especially when people are armed.” He added that “people drawn to this sort of thing are the kinds of personalities more likely to take it too far.” Nichols says what his group is doing is “not vigilantism at all. “If it was, we would have taken care of a couple of problems a long time ago,” he added. “Because we knew who they were, and where they lived.”

Picasso, Monets stolen in Dutch heist
AMSTERDAM (AP) — Thieves broke into a Rotterdam museum on Tuesday and walked off with works from the likes of Picasso, Monet, Gauguin and Matisse potentially worth hundreds of millions. Police haven’t said how they pulled off the early hours heist, but an expert who tracks stolen art said the robbers clearly knew what they were after. “Those thieves got one hell of a haul,” said Chris Marinello, who directs the Art Loss Register. The heist at the Kunsthal museum is one of the largest in years in the Netherlands, and is a stunning blow for the private Triton Foundation collection, which was being exhibited publicly as a group for the first time. “It’s every museum director’s worst nightmare,” said Kunsthal director Emily Ansenk, who had been in Istanbul on business but returned immediately.

By ALEXA OLESEN The Associated Press BEIJING — A glance at history suggests it’s easier for a Chinese woman to orbit Earth than to land a spot on the highest rung of Chinese politics. In June, a 33-year-old air force major marked a major feminist milestone by becoming the first Chinese woman to travel in space. With a once-a-decade leadership transition set to kick off Nov. 8, many now are waiting to see if another ambitious Chinese female, State Councilor Liu Yandong, can win one of the nine spots at the apex of Chinese power. Liu is a smiley 67-year-old with a degree in chemical engineering and a penchant for pearls and red lipstick. Her portfolios include education, sports and cultural affairs. Experts say she is wellconnected and state media paints her as a diligent civil servant with a human touch. In May, she donned scrubs and stroked the forehead of a hospitalized teacher who lost her legs pushing two students away from an oncoming bus. “You are so young, so beautiful,” state media quoted Liu as telling the teacher,

Chinese elite politics: It’s still a man’s world
Zhang Lili. “From now on, you can call me big sister.” Leadership transitions only happen once a decade in China. This year, Liu is the only female with an outside chance of landing a position at the top, and if she does, she will have made history. But rocketing into space seems simple compared to busting into the boys’ club of Chinese politics. “It’s relatively easy to have a Chinese female astronaut because that’s only about winning glory for China and not about actually divvying up political power,” said Feng Yuan, a Beijing-based women’s rights advocate. There are quotas meant to boost participation of women in the political process, but they are not strictly enforced. Since the founding of Communist China in 1949, no woman has ever served on the Politburo Standing Committee, the topmost leadership clique where major policy is set. Only two women have served as provincial party secretaries, powerful positions seen as stepping stones to national leadership posts. Former Vice Premier Wu Yi, known as the ‘Iron Lady’ for her tough nego-

tiating skills and ranked by Forbes as the second most powerful woman in the world in 2007, failed to advance past the Politburo, the group of about 25 from which Standing Committee members are recruited. Willy Lam, a historian at Chinese University of Hong Kong, says the climb to power typically begins with a local leadership post that gets parlayed into jobs overseeing increasingly large constituencies until, ideally, one is running a province or a big city. Those are the people who end up running China from the leafy, high-walled Zhongnanhai leadership compound in central Beijing. But to get those positions can be hard for a woman, for sometimes maddening reasons. “To become a mayor of a big city or a governor of a province you have to be sort of one of the boys, you have to drink a lot and maybe womanize a bit and also be reasonably corrupt,” Lam said. “There’s no lack of corrupt women in China, but this to-be-one-of-the-boys phenomenon, I think, is holding some promising female cadres back.”

Today’s joke: A couple, desperate to conceive a child, went to their priest and asked him to pray for them. “I’m going on a sabbatical to Rome,” he replied, “and while I’m there, I’ll light a candle for you.” When the priest returned three years later, he went to the couple’s house and found the wife pregnant, busily attending to two sets of twins. Elated, the priest asked her where her husband was so that he could congratulate him. “He’s gone to Rome, to blow that candle out” came the harried reply.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 Look for some exciting times to be in the offing in the year ahead. However, don’t expect this to be the case if you try to mix business and friendship. Keep these two areas of your life separate, if you can. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If your credibility with others could be fragile at present, it wouldn’t be wise to tell any fish stories. You need to have the trophies to back up your tales. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You are the type of person who seldom counts his or her chickens before they’re hatched. However, for some reason, you might bank heavily on something more wishful than real. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Watch out for someone with ulterior motives who could try to manipulate you with flattery. If someone says that you’re one of the greatest people alive, enjoy, but be on guard. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone for whom you’ve gone out of your way several times might not be in a mood to reciprocate when needed. Chalk it up to experience. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -If a social gathering that you’re invited to is likely to include several people you dislike, don’t punish yourself by not going and missing out on the fun; be prepared to turn the other cheek. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Instead of taking bows for something you’ve yet to accomplish, tell it like it is. It could cause you embarrassment down the line if the work in question should go unfinished. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Usually, you like to play things spontaneously, and you do quite well, but unless you plan every step of the way today, you’re likely to trip over your own feet. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Before getting yourself involved in a joint endeavor, think carefully about the costs and responsibilities that you’d be taking on. If things are not equally distributed, it won’t work out. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Don’t underestimate your adversaries, especially if you’re involved in negotiating a critical matter. That edge you think you have may only exist in your head. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -The truth will out itself and put you in a very embarrassing position if you fudge the facts and pretend that you’ve done something that you promised to do but have yet to complete. Tell it like it is. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you are tempted to cater to your whims in order to achieve instant gratification, chances are you might engage yourself in something extremely extravagant and financially unwise. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Be careful not to do anything that could jeopardize a relationship with some key allies. Your projects and prospects need the goodwill and support of these people.
