Fire prevention is elementary
BY STEPHANIE GROVES DELPHOS — Students at Franklin, St. John’s and Landeck elementary schools participated in a fire prevention program Friday. Delphos Fire Rescue Platoon Chief Kevin Streets introduced Kerry Blair from the National Fire Safety Council to the congregation of excited students in grades 1-4. Blair, the magic safety man, travels throughout Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and West Virginia captivating his audiences using illusions [magic tricks] to draw the student’s attention to the importance of fire safety. “Kids respond well when using magic,” Blair asserted. “I catch them off-guard with techniques that get them to learn something.” Intertwined within the display of showmanship, Blair described the five most important safety rules to the students: 1. Do not play with fire. Stay away from the stove, candles, lighters and matches. Most home fires are started by someone playing with fire. 2. Develop a fire escape plan. At home, work with your family to lay out an escape route. Know your escape exits — windows and doors. 3. Check smoke alarm batteries. Replace batteries if they are not functioning. If installing new units, choose models with differing alarm sounds to differentiate a fire’s location. 4. Get out! If there is a fire, get out of the house as quick as you can. Do not collect valuables or pets. 5. Call 911. Talk with the 911 operator, answer questions and tell them all the impor-

Franklin Elementary students listen intently as Kerry Blair explains fire safety.

A long, long time ago ... In fact, it has been 40 years since Don McLean’s single “American Pie” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. The iconic musical representation of historical events that shaped a nation has been theorized repeatedly in an attempt to interpret the meanings behind the lyrics of the song. The one message that does resonate throughout the tune, however, is that the song — and the times during which it was written — reflect the loss of innocence in American music. A newly-released volume of scholarly essays; “Do You Believe In Rock and Roll?: Essays on Don McLean’s “American Pie” by Delphos natives Ray Schuck and his son, Raymond I. Schuck; examines the song through a variety of themes. During the 1970s, the music culture evolved from the rebellious counterculture of the 60s toward a trend of relaxing music as well as dance music. People were tired of the turmoil from the previous decade — the Vietnam War, Charles Manson’s “Helter Skelter”, widespread drug abuse and deaths by overdose — and many of them sought a refuge in dance clubs to enjoy a good time. Music in this era became a vehicle for dialogue, voicing a deeper, darker and sadder outcry for change. It was the summer of 1971 and Don McLean’s epic exploration of American culture in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, “American Pie,” had catapulted into the top 40 and was a staple on all playlists. Which brings us to the question: Where were you when you first heard “American Pie”? “I remember it vividly. I

was eight or maybe 10 years old, at the Stadium Park, and I heard it blasting from a car radio,” Raymond reflected, “I thought about the imagery [dying] and knew I did not want to die.” Fast forward from 1971 to 1998, when Ray Schuck, visiting assistant professor of history at Ohio Northern

University, had been teaching courses in the Public History/ Museum Studies Program. “Dad teaches public history and plucked songs on his guitar relating the music of that time to the historical topic being discussed,” Raymond. “His students suggested that he reflect on and write about the song’s [American Pie] interpretations. He and I began the collaboration on the book about three and a half years ago.” The book encompasses eight compositions with themes that explore the song’s lyrical interpretations, lineby-line analysis of the song, perception of race in rock and roll, significance of the rock and roll industry, the experimentation of the actual playtime of the song, the not-so significance of rock and roll, the Baby Boomer generation and the impact of the era’s music on Generation X. The eighth composition — See BELIEVE, page 10

Have a safe Beggar’s Day
One of my favorite holidays is fast approaching — Halloween. Mwahahahahahaha! Halloween to me is kids dressed in their most creative outfits begging for candy and tossing a hurried “thank you” over their shoulder as they rush to the next house and more goodies. The biggest difference I have noticed over the years is how many porch lights are dark during trick or treat. When I was a little beggar, the whole pack of neighborhood kids ran up and down both sides of North Main and Canal streets, rarely skipping a house. We would lug our booty home and blissfully sort chocolate from other candies while munching on our favorites. (This was, of course, pre-urban legend about the razor blade in the apple.) One house on North Canal was all decked out and the nice lady there handed out popcorn balls and let us tour her little house of horror. What fun. You won’t find much of that nowadays. Parents keep a tight rein on their little ones and many spend most of the time driving around to family and friends gathering “safe” offerings. Homemade sweets have gone by the wayside in favor of more friendly, prepackaged fare. Many churches and other organizations plan Halloween gatherings where children can go and enjoy fun, games and treats while under the watchful eye of adults. That sounds OK, too, and I’m sure parents are relieved that the candy brought home is in smaller amounts. I can remember throwing away Tupperware containers of treats in November from my son’s Halloween foraging. Of course, I made sure the “good” stuff was eaten — by someone who shall remain nameless. Have a safe, fun one, however you celebrate.

On the Other hand
Editor’s note: You may have notices a new byline in The Herald the last several weeks. Stephanie Groves, or Steph as she has been known to me for more than 30 years, moved from Delphos after graduation and finally returned home in May to be closer to family and ground herself. Pittsburgh’s loss is definitely our gain. She is a 1982 Jefferson graduate; she was a year ahead of me in school. We shared an accounting class her senior year and one of my fondest memories of her is on Halloween when she dressed up as a jar of jelly beans. (Don’t tell her I stole her idea several years ago.) The oldest child of Tom Groves and Nancy Rosen, Steph has a wide range of talents and writing happens to be one of them. She is also a landscape designer, underground irrigation troubleshooter, amateur photographer, resells items on eBay (Her favorite sale so far is a set of barn door hinges), digitally mixes her own music, enjoys scrapbooking, is a Giants fan (She apparently fell in love with New York City while there and adopted their NFL team) and is a self-proclaimed computer geek. Her furry children include two kittens, who are polydactyls. That means they have six toes on their front paws. They are so cute. They look like they are wearing mittens. Steph fits in well into the Newsroom and is excited about meeting — or in some cases, reacquainting herself — with all of you.

“A Tale of Two Sagas” — examines Weird Al Yankovic’s parody, “Yoda,” which was inspired by the events of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. The song is told from the

point of view of Jedi-intraining Luke Skywalker and is set to the song “Lola,” a tune released by the British rock band The Kinks. “The use of a 1970’s tune in combination with Star Wars-inspired lyrics created a cross-over effect melding two

different generations together,” Raymond mused. The pair enjoyed working on the project together. “We really had a lot of fun,” Ray said. The book was published by McFarland and released Sept. 26.

Curator’s Corner

Several of us from Ohio had the opportunity to take a look at the history of New York City up close and personal as they say. More specifically, we spent five wonderful days touring Manhattan Island and the borough of Brooklyn. It was especially enjoyable for me since I was able to show off some of the hidden gems of an area that I still refer to as home. We even went down my old block that I grew up on in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. Even though it had been 25 years since I was there, the three story brick attached home looked just like it did when I lived there; just a wee bit smaller than I remember. Ron Schweiger, official historian of Brooklyn, took us through the various ethnic neighborhoods as well as highlighting Nathan’s at Coney Island, MCU Stadium home of the Brooklyn Cyclones, Barclay Arena where Barbara Streisand (also born in Brooklyn)

just had her two latest “my last concerts ever,” and where the MBA team Brooklyn Nets now play. Ron’s color commentary on the hows and whys of the continual changes of this county of 2.5 million people was enlightening. I was shocked to learn that 25 percent of that population are Jewish. It certainly wasn’t when I was a child. In order to give you a first hand look at our tour, check out the youtube video at http://www. dPnJnNdV8&list=UUAN6 eQJhg1i20DwKCldyINQ& index=1&feature=plcp produced by James Crawfis of Bluffton. You might find some humor in looking at the pictures and listening to the appropriate background music. I am certainly hoping James comes along to our Chicago trip next month just to see what he’ll capture of that. This man is a quite the professional. Now the only things remotely historical about

this trip to Chicago are the dinner/theater we will experience at Tommy Gun’s Garage (some people think that Jimmy Hoffa is buried there) or the total amount of money we will deposit at the Lighthouse Outlet, the Christkindl German Market and the Water Tower Mall. For “us guys” that are going on the trip, we plan on spending our time between ESPN Zone, Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse and going to the United Center to watch the Chicago Bulls and the Philadelphia ‘76ers duke it out. Learn more on my facebook page or by calling me at 419-303-5482. During the trip, scheduled Nov. 30 through Dec. 2, we will be staying at the Marriott Courtyard Magnificent Mile. It includes dinner/ theater, all transportation, lodging, fees and tips for just $399 per person. Better hurry as of this writing I only have 25 seats left. With the election less than a month away, I thought I would bring you

something a little more interesting than the campaign ads. The subject of American presidents (past presidents that is) is the most frequent face you will see on a US Postage Stamp. Back in 1847 was when the US started printing postage stamps and you’ll never guess who was on the first two issues - George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Franklin was never a president but is by far the one person who had the greatest influence on postal systems and postal history to date. Numerous deceased statesmen have appeared on definitive stamps over a period of many generations. Postage stamps bearing depictions of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin were joined by Thomas Jefferson in 1856, Andrew Jackson in 1862 and Abraham Lincoln in 1866, one year after his death. Prior to the issuance of the Abraham Lincoln stamp, the regulations indicated you had to be dead at least

10 years to be considered as the subject of a postage stamp. After this, regulations were changed to reflect that presidents may be portrayed on postage stamps one year after death. Hang in there until next time and we’ll take a little more about being “presidential.”

In today’s world, fifty cents doesn’t buy a heck of a lot — except of course, when it comes to your newspaper. For less than the cost of a soda, you can get word from across town or across the nation. For less than the price of a cup of coffee, you can get your fill of local news, politics, or whatever else is your cup of tea. With something new to greet you each day, from cover to cover, your newspaper is still the most “streetwise” buy in town! The Delphos Herald 419-695-0015 ext. 122

“Next to ingratitude, the most painful thing to bear is gratitude.” — Henry Ward Beecher, American clergyman (1813-1887)

Ohio electric building unsightly shed
The Ohio Electric (Traction Line R.H.) is handing Delphos a lemon. The unsightly freight platform just east of the first alley east of Main street, north of Second street, is being covered with a shed in which to house freight, incoming and outgoing. The force of carpenters are hurrying the work along so that it will be completed before the ordinance establishing a new fire limit passed by Council, goes into effect. This freight platform was just outside the fire limit as specified by the old ordinance, but Council succeeded in preventing the company from erecting a shed over it. Simultaneous with the passage of the new fire ordinance taking in the territory occupied by the freight platform, second hand material was brought here from Van Wert, and a force of men are now at work on the erection of the shed. The law does not probably prohibit them from erecting this unsightly shed in this prominent place, but it seems to be quite apparent that the company is not in accord with the movement in Delphos for improvements that will be not only useful, but pleasing to the eye as well, working out a plan for town beautification. This company was given and has for y ears enjoyed valuable concessions here. Delphos is one of the best towns on the line, in the matter of affording freight and passenger business. In spite of repeated promises of a freight and passenger station in Delphos that would be a credit to the company; and one that would make the people of Delphos proud, the Ohio Electric apparently intends to make a most undesirable condition, or for some time at least. However, there is sufficient ground space left for a new depot. Here’s hopin! Delphos Herald, Feb. 16, 1912 ---------Railroads Preparing for Miners Strike Railroads and other large consumers of coal in Delphos are preparing themselves against an almost certain miners’ strike, which threatens to throw the entire nation back upon the stored coal supplies and to render idle about every miner in the country. That the railroads believe in the old saying, “In times of peace prepare for war,” is plainly indicated by the way in which they are storing up coal for their engines and shops when the contracts with the miners expires on the first of April. A majority of the huge supply will be stored by the railroads. Coal dealers will also have big supplies and private concerns will


DEAR EDITOR: I am writing this letter to ask a question. Every year approximately 480 million taxpayer dollars goes to pay for abortions. Many taxpayers feel it is immoral to abort these unborn children and yet our vice president says this morality should not be forced on these women who want the taxpayers to pay for their abortion. If this is just, then why can’t a women receiving food stamps use those food stamps to buy alcohol and cigarettes? Cigarettes and alcoholic beverages are not illegal but if those receiving food stamps want them they must use their own money to buy them. This isn’t viewed as forcing our morality on these women. Would it not be just then for women who want to end their pregnancy to do so with their own money and not expect the taxpayers to pay for it? Is the fact that we, the taxpayers, are being forced to pay for these abortions not having immorality forced upon us? Just a concerned citizen, Annette Brown

WASHINGTON — Oh, to be 12 again, the better to enjoy the presidential debates. Or rather, the better to appreciate the Twitterverse, where America’s obsessivecompulsive, attention-deficit population holds the zeitgeist hostage with tweets and memes that infantilize political discourse and reduce the few remaining adults to impolitic fantasy. In this, the first socialmedia presidential election, the debates have come to resemble reality shows during which virtual audiences cast ballots (and aspersions), hiccoughing their impulsereactions to every word and movement into the intellectual vacuum we charitably call the body politic. Two debates in, and the complex issues of our day have been reduced to a large yellow bird and binders full of women. The problem isn’t only with the debates themselves, but the simultaneous critique by the world’s largest party — social media. Our millionway conversation is a convention of Snarks Anonymous. The cleverest commenter gets a free, if short, ride on the Fame Wheel, usually at the expense of Mitt Romney, who, let’s stipulate, is not the likeliest presidential choice of the Twitter generation. It doesn’t help that Romney is so ... giving. During the first debate, he

The supply of Anthracite coal is now limited in Delphos, and many of the dealers have been unable the past few days to have any shipped here. The Clover Leaf railroad has already commenced storing coal at Charleston. Several thousand ton will also be stored in Frankfort and Delphos and at other points along the line.

Delphos Herald, Feb. 17, 1912 ---------Red Lights Placed Red lights were placed at the Commercial Bank and Hotel Delphos corners, Thursday night, where the walks were under water, because the sewer catch basins were frozen up. Employees of the city succeeded in opening them up Friday and the water has been drained. Delphos Herald, Feb. 16, 1912 ---------Passing Of Old Building Rapid progress is being made in tearing away the walls of the old Commercial Bank building to make room for their modern new structure. All the walls except the first and second stories of the one to the south will be torn away and the building will be practically a new structure when the work is completed. The razing of this structure marks the passing of one of the old business buildings of Delphos. It was the fourth brick business building erected on Main street and was built about the year 1870 by R.K. Lytle and I.C. Scott, and was first used as a grain elevator by these gentlemen. In the big fire of 1872, the roof and corner of the building was on fire, but the flames were extinguished before any great damage was done. The vacant space on the north side of the structure, which is now to be covered by a portion of the new bank building, had been a driveway

for the elevator. The grain was unloaded here and was elevated by horse power. The firm of D.L. Williams & Co. also occupied the building for a time as a grain elevator. In 1870, the building was abandoned as an elevator and was converted into a business block. The Commercial Bank, which was organized two years prior to this time, was the first business to occupy the north room of the business building after the change and has continued in this location ever since. The second floor of the building was converted into office rooms and the third floor was equipped with a stage and was used for many years as Delphos’ theatre, known as Lytle Hall. After St. Marys Hall was built, the third floor was converted into lodge quarters, used by the Knights of Pythias until this spring, when they purchased the Opera House block and equipped handsome new quarters there. This large three story brick structure which is now rapidly disappearing, was at one time Delphos’ largest and most important building and the new structure which will replace it, will be the largest and finest building of the business section of the greater Delphos of the present. Delphos Herald, June 9, 1912 ---------Discover Error on Cannon Trophy WASHINGTON — There stands at one of the entrances to the department, a trim little cannon. It is a pigmy among the giant trophies of mighty guns that surround the building but it has some history of its own. It was the first cannon captured by the Americans from the British in the Revolutionary war, being captured by the great patriot-traitor general Benedict Arnold. It has in a dozen years been passed by more army and navy officers and other notables, than any gun in the United States. Yet in all this time, that little gun has born a marked error on a large name plate — an error so plain that it should have been detected immediately by any passing high school cadet. The gun is a bronze sixpounder, built in Holland in 1747 for King George of England. It is a little under six feet long and is about three and a half inches in caliber. Deeply cut along the barrel near the muzzle end is the following: “Surrendered by the Capitulation of St. Johns, 1775.” But on a large metal plate sunk in the national shield, on which the gun is mounted, is this conflicting statement: “Revolutionary Trophy; Surrendered at

Yorktown, 1775.” Thus the little gun appears to have been captured at Yorktown, six years before there was any fighting at that point. The error remained undetected for 18 years. Capt. U.S. Grant, third superintendent of the building, corrected the error at last. “Beyond doubt,” said Captain Grant, “the gun was captured on some of the adventurous expeditions made by the early revolutionists in 1775.” Delphos Herald, Feb. 16, 1912 ---------Delphos Has a New Baseball Field Delphos has a new baseball field. The Delphos Bending Works baseball team has taken over a field immediately west of the South Clay street athletic field and is placing it in condition for regular games. It has been leased for a period of two years. A diamond has been scraped and a backstop and bleachers will be erected. A small grandstand may be built to serve as the backstop. It is the intention of the management of the Bending Works team to play regular games there. The first game was played Sunday afternoon when they played the Ridge team the visitors taking them into camp by a score of 3 to 2. Wilhelm was on the mound for the Delphos boys and allowed the Ridgers 7 hits, striking out 5, issuing three bases on balls and hitting two. Davis pitched for the visiting team, holding the locals to six hits, striking out six and walking the same number.

A mysterious letter was found by Mrs. Ford in her mail box. It was addressed in the scrawling handwriting of an aged person and read: “Mrs. Ford; A long time ago my man took chickens from your place. Now he is gone and the children and I think he might rest better if you got for them some pay. Just a little each week maybe.” Each week, following receipt of the letter, one, two or three crisp one dollar bills have reached the Ford home by mail. ---------Continued in next week’s paper

Point of View
delivered Big Bird, one of his targets for funding cuts along with public broadcasting. Such easy prey for President Obama, whose campaign launched a rejoinder sure to capture the tyke vote: Obama kills Osama bin Laden and Romney wants to kill Big Bird. It was the kind of setup that puts comedy writers out of work. Next came the “binders full of women.” Romney was answering (or avoiding) a question about the Lilly Ledbetter Act, which removed the statute of limitations for filing complaints about unequal pay, and switched to his record on hiring women. In the process of a search to fill Cabinet positions while governor of Massachusetts, he said he had “binders full of women.” Before the debate was over, the hashtag #bindersfullofwomen was ricocheting through the Twitterverse. By morning, “binders full of women” was the lead topic on talk shows and continues to be a multimedia punch line. It would all be so very amusing if not for the sub-

sequent media interrogatory. Was this emblematic of Romney’s attitude toward women? Did Romney cause himself irreparable harm among women voters? I defer to Time’s Mark Halperin, who doubtless spoke for many of us when he said on “Morning Joe”: “The binder thing is what’s wrong with our politics.” Ridiculous, in other words. In full disclosure, I should confess that I am a binder person. I have a binder for everything — family, finances, office, home, dog. I do not objectify these aspects of my life; I honor them with organizational zeal. So when Romney said that he had binders full of women, I thought, well of course. As it turns out, at least some of his binders were provided by a women’s organization that was lobbying the governor for more women in power positions. Good for them — and good for him. He did it, filling 10 of the top 20 positions in his administration with women. By contrast, it seems fair to mention, women staffers in the Obama administration have reported feeling marginalized, according to Ron Suskind’s book “Confidence Men.” One even described the White House as a “hostile workplace.” But never mind. The Obama campaign couldn’t be more delighted

with “Bindergate,” which dovetails nicely with the narrative created by Obama’s team that Romney is waging war on women. Not all women see things this way, the evidence of which is the movement of women voters toward Romney, especially after the first debate. For this reason, perhaps, the Obama campaign immediately bought a Twitter ad and issued this statement: “The President talked about women as breadwinners. Romney talked about them as resumes in ‘binders.’” Actually, he spoke of them as people he wanted to hire, but again, never mind. Romney can be awkward. His word choices are sometimes odd. But the idea that this particular phrasing was so jarring to some women that they got digital vapors is nonsense. Twitter may keep us entertained, but it can also make us ninnies. So much ado about nothing leads one to wonder what else might be going on. Perhaps Obama foreshadowed these events in his acceptance speech at the 2008 Democratic convention when he said: “If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things.” File that one in your binder full of politics.

Second half secures Jays’ Ada uses Wildcat mistakes to record NWC shutout win over New Bremen
By GREG SCHERGER The Delphos Herald By JIM METCALFE DELPHOS — The first half belonged to New Bremen. The second half was all St. John’s. That is the quick summary of the Midwest Athletic Conference football contest between the Jays and the Cardinals Friday night at Stadium Park as the Blue Jays prevailed 34–3. In cold and rainy field conditions, St. John’s fumbled on its first possession and New Bremen returned the favor on its drive. After a St. John’s punt, the Cardinals started at the 30. New Bremen had its best offensive play of the night: running back Alex Speelman bolted 52 yards to the Blue Jay 7. The Jays’ defense tightened up and aided by an illegal procedure call, the Cardinals settled for a 15-yard field goal by sophomore Trey Naylor at the 4:57 mark of the first period for the 3-0 edge. The Jays came up empty on their third possession: starting at their own 35 and advancing the ball to the New Bremen 27. On a 2ndand-7 play, quarterback Mark Boggs was stripped of the ball. Following a 3-and-out by the Cardinals, the Jays again advanced the ball — highlighted by a 40-yard run by Luke MacLennan — to the Cardinals 25. The drive stalled on a 4th-and-1 with ADA — Ada was looking to go into next Friday’s home game versus Lima Central Catholic at least tied with the Thunderbirds atop the Northwest Conference with 7-0 marks and 9-0 overall records. Jefferson wanted to keep that from happening Friday night on a soggy War Memorial Stadium field in Ada but too many mistakes — 10 penalties for 81 yards chief among them — cost them in a 17-0 loss. “We had our chances and opportunities but those mistakes hurt us; we shot ourselves in the foot too many times,” Jefferson coach Bub Lindeman noted. “I felt we played well, especially defensively; we had the game plan to stop (Kellen) Decker and we did that. We felt we could handle their short passing game and maybe force them to throw deep. We did that, too; we just hurt ourselves too many times in crucial situations.” Jefferson (6-3, 4-3 NWC) held on its first defensive series and gained a first down on their drive. However, with the first half featuring a steady Tom Morris photo light rain and thus a slippery The St. John’s defense made life very difficult for ball, an interception by Micah New Bremen Friday night at Stadium Park, like senior Roberson of junior quarterback Kody White running down a Cardinals runner.

the momentum of the game. On their first possession, they started from the 42 and scored on the third play — at 8:46 — as MacLennan broke off left tackle from 18 yards out. The extra point by Andrew Metzger was good, making the score 7-3. The Jays were never threatened the rest of the game. The second touchdown for the Jays came at 3:58 in the third, set up by an interception at the Cardinal 40. Boggs stepped in the end zone from a yard out, capping a 6-play drive; the extra point was good making the score 14-3. St. John’s wrapped up scoring in the third quarter on a 2-yard scamper by Tyler Jettinghoff with 41 seconds remaining. The extra point was deflected, closing out the quarter 20-3 in favor of the Jays. In the fourth, St. John’s used a 4-play, 55-yard drive with a touchdown from Jettinghoff from 6sixyards out to increase the margin to 27-3 (Metzger kick good). The final score for the Jays was tallied by Troy Warnecke on a 1-yard run, capping a time-

consuming 7-play drive at the 2:54 mark. Warnecke carried the ball five times on the drive for a total of 65 yards. Blue Jays coach Todd Schulte was definitely pleased with his team’s performance in the second half. “We really shot ourselves in the foot in the first half and coupled with a number of mistakes, just could not get it going. New Bremen had a lot of guys on the line, keying on our running game,” he said. “In the second half, we made some adjustments, connected on some passes and that opened up some running lanes. But give credit to New Bremen; especially in the first half, the Cardinals played us well.” The Jays (6-3, 5-2 MAC) have solidified a berth in the postseason playoffs and visit Minster next Friday.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2012 Someone you’re likely to meet in a social situation in the year ahead could turn out to be a huge asset in the commercial world. However, before asking any favors of this person, be certain you have established a firm foundation of respect. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Be careful if someone with whom you’re involved is as determined to have his or her own way as you are. Unfortunately, it is a formula that is likely to promote a huge clash. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Even if it is extremely difficult for you to ‘fess up to your mistakes, defending them won’t do anything for you. Don’t make excuses -- make amends. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- All those productive intentions of yours will quickly go by the boards if someone starts enticing you to participate in something fun. If it’s your day off and you can afford to relax, let ‘er rip. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It might be best for you not to establish any kind of objective that requires a lot of work. Your tenacity and patience aren’t likely to be up to snuff at present. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t let yourself get involved with anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable. Chances are there is plenty of justification for your feelings. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- There is a strong possibility that the gauge you are using to establish the loyalty and trustworthiness of a prospective friend may be way off. Take a second look. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You’re not the type of person who allows your companions to do your thinking for you, and you’re not apt to begin doing so. Stick to placid, undemanding pals to hang out with. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -If you increase the amount of work you have to do, you’ll not only make yourself extremely unhappy, but also throw off your focus and lower your productivity as a whole. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Normally, you’re not a possessive person, but today for some reason you could start to make unreasonable demands upon others. Get back in character. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Sometimes it’s wise to steer a middle course, but not so if you’re working on something complicated that demands exactitude. Do what you have to, and don’t dilute your effectiveness. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There are lots of times when kind words and gentle directives work far better than demands, and today could be one of them. A soft approach not only turns away wrath, it assures compliance. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -If you simply don’t care, you aren’t likely to manage your resources as prudently as would your friendly banker. That’s probably the reason why some have so much money and you don’t. MONDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2012 It looks like Lady Luck will be

It’ll be up to you to put what you want into action. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Make a mental game out of any difficulties that you might have to contend with. Your capacity for achievement will be greatly enhanced if you don’t take anything too seriously. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Although you’re likely to be extremely enterprising, you won’t necessarily be working for personal gain. It’s more apt to be the needs and wants of those you love that will motivate you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- As long as you act on your ideas, your probabilities for success look to be extremely encouraging. Two of your greatest assets are your imagination and initiative. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- This could be a materially rewarding day for you, but, surprisingly, not necessarily due to your own efforts. All the good that befalls you might be derived from an indirect source. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You’ll perform twice as efficiently working with persons who know exactly where they are going rather than with those who are more carefree. Choose wisely. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Don’t look for problems, but don’t run away from them either. This is a day when you should be able to respond unusually well to challenging situations. ARIES (March 21-April 19) --Regardless of your circumstances and/or problems, think positive -whether you realize it or not, this is an excellent day for fulfilling your hopes and desires. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It’s perfectly OK to be bold when striving to achieve your purposes, but not to the point of foolhardiness. If bravado is required in certain cases, use it sparingly. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The answers that you’ve been searching for can be found by discussing your concerns with someone who knows how to listen and has advised you correctly in the past. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -If you spot a development that shows possibilities of being financially meaningful, go ahead and exploit it, but do so carefully. It might be more complex than it initially appears. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Someone with whom you’re involved could presently be on a lucky roll that could include you if you don’t get cold feet. Instead of running away, snuggle up even closer. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -You’re in a better-than-usual cycle for achieving more meaningful objectives, especially those that are related to your personal ambitions and material security. Go after things with gusto.

Fire destroys State Fair of Texas icon Big Tex
By DANNY ROBBINS The Associated Press DALLAS — The man who provides the voice for Big Tex, the giant cowboy at the State Fair of Texas, was greeting people with his usual “Howdy, folks!” in a slow drawl Friday when someone rushed into his trailer to tell him the towering fair icon was on fire. “It moved quickly,” Bill Bragg said of the fire that engulfed the 52-foot-tall structure, leaving not much more than its charred metal frame behind. “It was a quick end.” This year’s fair was supposed to be a celebration for Big Tex, marking his 60th birthday. Instead, the beloved cowboy was hauled from the grounds on a flatbed truck two days before the end of the fair in a procession resembling a funeral. “It’s sad to see this happen, but it’s lucky no one was injured or killed,” said Mike Blucher of Dallas, who was at the fair with his wife, Linda. The fire brought a temporary end to a piece of Texas culture. The cowboy with the 75-gallon hat and 50-pound belt buckle always was easy to spot and served as a popular meeting place for people coming to the fair or attending the annual TexasOklahoma football game at the nearby Cotton Bowl. But all that remained by noon Friday were hands and shirt leaves on a burned skeleton. “Big Tex is a symbol of everything the state fair stands for,” fair spokeswoman Sue Gooding said. “Big Tex is where my parents told me, ‘If you get lost, meet at Big Tex.”’ Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Joel Lavender said Friday afternoon that the cause of the blaze had not been determined. Some dispatchers took a playful approach to reporting the blaze. “Got a rather tall cowboy with all his clothes burned off,” one said. “Howdy, folks, it’s hot,” another said. Fair officials and city leaders quickly called for the return of Big Tex, vowing to rebuild the structure. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings tweeted that the cowboy would become “bigger and better for the 21st Century.” Big Tex’s hands, boots and face were made of Fiberglas, Gooding said. The clothing that burned had been provided last year by a Fort Worth company, she said. Gooding speculated that the fire could have started in mechanical workings at the base of the structure and that the metal skeleton “served as a chimney.” The skeleton will be evaluated, and a new one will be built if necessary, she said. Stanley Hill, who supervises a food stand that has been located near the structure for 18 years, said he noticed smoke coming from Big Tex’s neck area. That quickly turned into a blaze that engulfed the structure’s fabric covering. “Once it started burning, it was gone,” Hill said. The structure was removed Friday in essentially the same way workers put it up every year — with a crane that slowly lowers it. Only this time, the steel skeleton was covered with a tarp. Big Tex was actually built in 1949 as a giant Santa Claus for a Christmas celebration in Kerens, 60 miles south of Dallas. Intrigued by the idea of a towering cowboy, the State Fair paid $750 for the structure, which debuted as Big Tex in 1952. Big Tex is inextricably linked to the State Fair. The State Fair website is www., and visitors to the site see their cursor turn into an image of Big Tex’s head, clad in a cowboy hat. The fair’s Twitter account features the cowboy’s image as well. “You know somebody’s a true Texan if you say ‘Big

Ill. Amtrak train hits 111 mph in test run Earlier puberty seen in boys, just like in girls
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — For the first time on a key Midwestern route between Chicago and St. Louis, an Amtrak passenger train topped 110 mph Friday, ripping through fog-shrouded farm fields and blowing past cars on a parallel highway. The test run on a special train packed with journalists, politicians and transportation officials was a milestone in President Barack Obama’s vision of bringing high-speed rail to the United States and transforming the way Americans travel. It also was a welcome morale booster for high-speed rail advocates who have watched conservatives in Congress put the brakes on spending for fast train projects they view as expensive boondoggles. “Four years ago we were nowhere. Illinois and the country was a wasteland when it came to high speed rail,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, among those celebrating onboard the train. “This is a dream come true today.” The silver five-car, twoengine train held the high speeds for about five minutes along a 15-mile stretch of track between the central Illinois cities of Dwight and Pontiac before braking back below its usual top speed of 79 mph. Paying passengers on the route will start experiencing the faster speed on that short segment by Thanksgiving. Most of the route will get the higher speed by 2015. The goal was to hit 110 mph, and for a moment the speedometer that officials were watching ticked up to 111. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn pumped his fist in the air and gave a thumbs-up. He and the other dignitaries cheered, shook hands and congratulated one another. Away from the celebrations, some rail and policy experts questioned whether the route could become profitable, pose serious competition to air and automobile travel, or ever reach speeds comparable to the bullet trains blasting across Europe and Asia at 150 mph and faster. Kristina Rasmussen, vice president of the Illinois Policy Institute, said she thinks it’s very unlikely the route ever will make money. For one thing, she said, there will be political pressure to keep fares low, dimming prospects that Amtrak will take in enough to recoup maintenance and operating costs. “We’re yoking ourselves to trains that will obligate taxpayers to provide billions of dollars in future subsidies,” she said. Advocates say Midwest routes from Chicago hold the most immediate promise for high-speed rail expansion outside Amtrak’s existing, much faster Acela trains between Boston and Washington, D.C. They say it will give a growing Midwest population an alternative to rush-hour gridlock and overburdened airports, while promoting economic development along the route and creating manufacturing jobs. In first announcing his plans in 2009, Obama said a mature high-speed rail network also would reduce demand for foreign oil and eliminate more than 6 billion pounds of carbon dioxide emissions a year — equivalent to removing 1 million cars from the roads. He set aside $8 billion in stimulus funds, directing the first round of money to speeding up existing lines like the one across Illinois and calling it a down payment on an ambitious plan to change the way Americans travel. CHICAGO — When it comes to the birds and the bees, some parents may want to have that talk with their boys a little sooner than they expected. Researchers have found signs of puberty in American boys up to two years earlier than previously reported — age 9 on average for blacks, 10 for whites and Hispanics. Other studies have suggested that girls, too, are entering puberty younger. Why is this happening? Theories range from higher levels of obesity and inactivity to chemicals in food and water, all of which might interfere with normal hormone production. But those are just theories, and they remain unproven. Doctors say earlier puberty is not necessarily cause for concern. And some experts question whether the trend is even real. Dr. William Adelman, an adolescent medicine specialist in the Baltimore area, says the new research is the first to find early, strong physical evidence that boys are maturing earlier. But he added that the study still isn’t proof and said it raises a lot of questions. Earlier research based on 20-year-old national data also suggested a trend toward early puberty in boys, but it was based on less rigorous information. The new study involved testes measurements in more than 4,000 boys. Enlargement of testes is generally the earliest sign of puberty in boys. The study was published online Saturday in Pediatrics to coincide with the American Academy of Pediatrics’ national conference in New Orleans.

Tex’ and they don’t look at you like you’re weird,” Gooding said. Perhaps no one is closer to the giant cowboy than Bragg, who has served as the voice of Big Tex the last 11 years. Working inside a trailer a few yards from the base of the structure, the 65-year-old radio engineer reads from a script while his voice makes Big Tex’s mouth move automatically. As the crane moved into position to remove his old friend, Bragg was philosophical, saying he’d already been told he would be welcoming people to the fair in the same fashion next year. “My job is safe and secure,” he said. “They’re telling me, ‘Take the rest of the day off and we’ll see you next year.”’

NM peanut capital at heart of national recall
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The country’s largest organic peanut processing plant is scrubbing its facilities top to bottom and hopes to get back in production soon after a massive recall of scores of products linked to a salmonella outbreak. The recall has affected peanut butter and nut products sold at major retailers around the country, raising concerns about the long-term impact on the industry — especially in products grown and processed in the flat, dusty eastern New Mexico town of Portales. The region is home to the prized Valencia peanut, which represents just a small percentage of the nation’s massive peanut crop, but is favored for natural and organic peanut butter products because of its sweet flavor. This year’s crop is exceptional, growers say, and the town is set this weekend to celebrate at its 39th annual peanut festival. But the festivities are likely to be overshadowed by anxiety as the crop is piling up in drying trailers while the Sunland Inc. facility linked to the outbreak remains shuttered for a topto-bottom scrubbing. “We are very concerned about it,” said Wayne Baker, a retired peanut farmer and chair of the New Mexico Peanut Growers Association. “The harvest is going on as normal and Sunland is receiving peanuts, but we have got to get the FDA to approve some changes and get going.” Sunland, which operates the country’s largest USDA certified organic peanut pro-

Dr. Neerav Desai, an adolescent medicine specialist at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, said he’s seen a subtle trend toward slightly earlier puberty in boys. He said it’s important for parents and doctors to be aware so they can help children emotionally prepare for the changes that come with puberty. Doctors generally consider puberty early if it begins before age 8 in girls and before age 9 in boys. Boys are more likely than girls to have an underlying physical cause for early puberty. But it’s likely that most, if not all, of the boys in the study were free of any conditions that might explain the results, said lead author Marcia Herman-Giddens, a researcher at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

cessing plant, first closed its peanut butter plant late last month when the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linked a salmonella outbreak to peanut butter that it produced for Trader Joe’s. Its roasting and processing facilities were also closed and the recall expanded this month to include more than 300 peanut and other nut products after the FDA found salmonella at the plant. On Friday, New Mexico health officials reported a 5-year-old girl from the Portales area who they said had consumed multiple peanut products was confirmed to have been sickened by the same bacteria found at the plant, bringing the number of confirmed cases to 36 in 20 states.
