Sandy gains EMS Assoc. power and aims holding fund drive for Northeast
The Delphos EMS Association is conducting a fund drive. Representatives will go door-to-door asking for a $20 donation, which will be used to purchase needed equipment to update and improve service to the community. Each household or business that makes a donation will be offered a complimentary family portrait in thanks for supporting the local department. By JENNIFER PELTZ and ALLEN G.

Boston — and as far west as the Great Lakes. Up to 3 feet of snow was forecast for the West Virginia mountains. Millions of people in the storm’s path stayed home from work. Subways, buses and trains shut down, and more than 7,000 flights in and out of the East were canceled, snarling travel around the globe. Hundreds of thousands of people were under orders to flee the coast, including 375,000 in lower Manhattan and other parts of New York City, but authorities warned that the time to get out was short or already past. “I think this one’s going to do us in,” said Mark Palazzolo, who boarded up his bait-and-tackle shop in Point Pleasant Beach, N.J., with the same wood he used in past storms, crossing out the names of Hurricanes Isaac and Irene and spray-painting “Sandy” next to them. “I got a call from a friend of mine from Florida last night who said, ‘Mark, get out!

Facebook used to kidnap, traffic girls
DEPOK, Indonesia (AP) — When a 14-year-old girl received a Facebook friend request from an older man she didn’t know, she accepted it out of curiosity. It’s a click she will forever regret, leading to a brutal story that has repeated itself as sexual predators find new ways to exploit Indonesia’s growing obsession with social media. The junior high student was quickly smitten by the man’s smooth online flattery. They exchanged phone numbers, and his attention increased with rapid-fire texts. He convinced her to meet in a mall, and she found him just as charming in person. They agreed to meet again. After telling her mom she was going to visit a sick girlfriend on her way to church choir practice, she climbed into the man’s minivan near her home in Depok, on the outskirts of Jakarta. The man, a 24-year-old who called himself Yogi, drove her an hour to the town of Bogor, West Java, she told The Associated Press in an interview. There, he locked her in a small room inside a house with at least five other girls aged 14 to 17. She was drugged and raped repeatedly — losing her virginity in the first attack. After one week of torture, her captor told her she was being sold and shipped to the (Continued from page 1A) faraway island of Batam, known for its seedy brothels and child sex tourism that caters to men coming by boat from nearby Singapore. She sobbed hysterically and begged to go home. She was beaten and told to shut up or die. So far this year, 27 of the 129 children reported missing to Indonesia’s National Commission for Child Protection are believed to have been abducted after meeting their captors on Facebook, said the group’s chairman, Arist Merdeka Sirait. One of the 27 has been found dead. In the month since the Depok girl was found near a bus terminal Sept. 30, there have been at least seven reports of young girls in Indonesia being abducted by people they met on Facebook. Although no solid data exists, police and aid groups that work on trafficking issues say it seems to be a particularly big problem in the Southeast Asian archipelago. “Maybe Indonesia is kind of a unique country so far. Once the reports start coming in, you will know that maybe it’s not one of the countries, maybe it’s one of a hundred countries,” said Anjan Bose, a program officer who works on child online protection issues at ECPAT International, tall ship made famous in the movie “Mutiny on the Bounty.” The Coast Guard searched for two other crew members. The rescued had donned survival suits and life jackets and boarded two lifeboats after the ship began taking on water. They were plucked from 18-foot seas just before sunrise. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said a fishing pier in the beach resort of Ocean City, not far from a popular boardwalk and amusement park, was “half-gone.” The area had been ordered evacuated on Sunday. Water was already a foot deep on the streets of Lindenhurst, N.Y., along the southern edge of Long Island, and the canals around the island’s Great South Bay were bulging two hours before high tide. Gale-force winds blew overnight over coastal North Carolina, southeastern Virginia, the Delmarva Peninsula and coastal New Jersey. Forecasters warned that New York City and Long

a nonprofit global network that helps children in 70 countries. “The Internet is such a global medium. It doesn’t differentiate between poor and rich. It doesn’t differentiate between the economy of the country or the culture.” Websites that track social media say Indonesia has nearly 50 million people signed up for Facebook, making it one of the world’s top users after the U.S. The capital, Jakarta, was recently named the most active Twitter city by Paris-based social media monitoring company Semiocast. In addition, networking groups such as BlackBerry and Yahoo Messenger are wildly popular on mobile phones. Many young Indonesians, and their parents, are unaware of the dangers of allowing strangers to see their personal information online. Teenagers frequently post photos and personal details such as their home address, phone number, school and hangouts without using any privacy settings — allowing anyone trolling the net to find them and learn everything about them. “We are racing against time, and the technology frenzy over Facebook is a trend among teenagers here,” Sirait said. “Police should move faster, or many more girls will become victims.” Island could be on the dangerous northeastern edge of the tempest and bear the worst of the storm surge — a wall of seawater up to 11 feet high that could swamp lower Manhattan, flood subway tunnels and cripple the network of electrical and communications lines that are vital to the nation’s financial center. The major American stock exchanges closed for the day, the first unplanned shutdown since the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001. The floor of the NYSE, typically bustling with traders on a Monday morning, fell within the city’s mandatory evacuation zone. The United Nations canceled all meetings at its New York headquarters. New York called off school for the city’s 1.1 million students, and the more than 5 million people who depend on its transit network every day were left without a way to get around. Most planned to stay inside anyway.

Woman on bicycle struck and killed
BY ED GEBERT DHI correspondent

At 11:19 p.m. on Sunday, Delphos Police were contacted by a subject in reference to an assault that had just occurred in the 200 block of East Third Street. Upon speaking to the victim, it was found that a subject known to them had caused or attempted to cause physical harm to the victim and that the subject had also threatened harm to the victim’s family. The case will be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review and possible charges.

VAN WERT — A Van Wert woman is dead after being struck by a vehicle while trying to cross an intersection on her bicycle. Van Wert County Sheriff’s Office reports that 43-yearold Tammy McGannon of Lincoln Hwy., Van Wert, was pronounced dead of injuries suffered after being hit by a car just before 6 p.m. Friday. According to the report, McGannon was riding eastbound on Lincoln Highway approaching the intersection. She reportedly slowed, then entered the intersection where she was struck by a maroon 2005 Mercury Montego driven northbound by Linda L. Reno, 60, Convoy. McGannon was thrown from the bicycle, striking the windshield of the Montego. She landed in the northbound lane of the highway while the bicycle was located a few yards to the north on the white line of the southbound lane of US 224. McGannon was taken by Brickner’s Ambulance to Van Wert Hospital where she was pronounced dead. The accident report shows that she had failed to yield to oncoming traffic. A witness at the scene told The Times Bulletin the bicyclist had not stopped before attempting to cross the highway. Two other injury crashes were reported Friday evening. A Pontiac Grand Am hit a utility pole on Dog Creek Road just north of US 224 around 8 p.m. Then approximately 90 minutes later, a rear-end collision was reported on US 30, just east of the Middle Point Road interchange. No further information was available on drivers or injuries in the other two incidents.

Ohio task force grapples with bedbug problem


Portman tries to boost Romney in home state
By DAN SEWELL The Associated Press CINCINNATI — Getting passed over for the national ticket hasn’t kept Sen. Rob Portman from being a key player in Mitt Romney’s presidential bid. Portman gets a lot of credit for getting the Republican nominee ready for the debates that recharged the race; he’s been a leading surrogate on Sunday TV talk shows, he shows up in national campaign ads, and is often alongside Romney in rallies. And he’s dedicating himself in the race’s final days to what could be a crucial mission for Romney — helping him win Ohio. “We’ll be in every area of Ohio. It’s important to go everywhere,” Portman said. He acknowledges Romney’s path to the White House gets much tougher without winning the state that Barack Obama carried in 2008. “You wouldn’t want to take the risk,” he said. “A Republican has never won without winning Ohio. I think we’ll win Ohio, but it’s going to be close.” After spending many hours on the road with Romney practicing for debates in the role of Obama — Portman has developed a reputation as top rehearsal partner for Republican candidates, going back to playing Al Gore for George W. Bush’s 2000 debates — he plans to perform the remainder of his campaign roles in Ohio. He was an early supporter of Romney in Ohio and worked hard for Romney’s important March 6 primary victory. Portman, a former congressman, U.S. trade representative and White House budget chief, was often cited in national political speculation as a front-runner to be Romney’s running mate and was under consideration. Instead, Romney chose Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan. “For my family and me, it was mixed,” Portman said in an interview last week, calling it “an honor” to be considered. “We were relieved in a way and also disappointed. “I think I could have helped,” he said. “And I said at the time, I will throw my full weight behind Gov. Romney, do everything possible to help get him elected. I think I’ve done that and will continue to do that.” Mark Weaver, an Ohio consultant working for the Romney campaign who also helped Portman’s 2010 Senate campaign, said it’s not surprising to see Portman in the forefront for Romney. Weaver called him one of the campaign’s “most valuable players” and an important force in the Ohio effort for his political knowledge of the state and his network of supporters. “Those of us who know Rob were disappointed when he wasn’t chosen,” Weaver said. “But his sense of character and class allow him to throw himself into the Romney effort as if he had been the one chosen.” In the past week, Portman has taken the lead in trying to counter Obama on the auto bailout, which the president trumpeted in Ohio while ridi-


CLEVELAND (AP) — More bedbugs are moving into northeast Ohio, and Cleveland area organizations have formed a task force to develop plans for dealing with them. The Bed Bug Task Force wants to teach people how to prevent taking the bloodsucking parasites home and what to do if they find an infestation. The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that the 30-member task force meets monthly to share the latest information. It will host an annual bedbug conference next month. The Cleveland Health Department has received about 500 complaints of bedbugs this year. That’s compared to 390 at this time last year. The county health department has received more than 1,000 calls for community assistance related to the pests. In August, the downtown federal building had to be treated for the pests.

Ohio gas prices continue to drop

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohioans can again expect to see lower prices at the gas pump compared with last week. The average price for a gallon of regular gas in the state was $3.33 in today’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s 7 cents lower than a week ago. A month ago Ohioans were paying an average of $3.79. They’re paying close to the same price per gallon as this time last year, when the average was $3.35. The national average Monday was $3.55, down 13 cents from a week ago.

Rock hall of fame honors Chuck Berry
By THOMAS J. SHEERAN The Associated Press CLEVELAND — Still rockin’ at 86, music legend Chuck Berry promised a comeback Saturday with six new songs, some written 16 years ago. “And as soon as I can get someone to guide me — and I do know a little about the business — I want to push them out,” he told reporters at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, which honored him with an award and tribute concert. “I’m going to come back and push them out if you know what I mean, somehow.” Berry, a rock pioneer with early hits that included “Roll Over Beethoven,” ‘’Sweet Little Sixteen” and “Johnny B. Goode,” wouldn’t tip his hand in detail about the new songs or when they might be released. “They might be old, but they are the same type of music that I have been playing,” he said. The lineup for Saturday night’s tribute concert honoring Berry at the State Theater included Ernie Isley and Darryl DMC McDaniels, Joe Bonamassa, Rick Derringer, Rosie Flores, John Fullbright, David Johansen, Ronnie Hawkins, Steve Jordan and Merle Haggard. Berry, who still performs monthly at a club in suburban St. Louis, offered some advice to the performers: “Keep rocking, keep rocking. That’s two words. Next word is: Be kind to your fans.” To mark the American Music Masters award presentation, the rock hall has mounted a special exhibition with items including Berry’s stage clothes, a guitar and his 1958 Chess Records recording contract. The rock hall’s new library and archives has a separate exhibit with items including Berry’s 1964 British tour program and a handbill promoting his appearance with the Grateful Dead in 1968. Past American Music Masters program honorees include Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and Woody Guthrie. Berry, the museum’s first inductee in 1986, called the award and enshrinement in the rock hall a great honor. “You can’t get any higher in my profession than this building or this reason for this building,” heand raisedin said.

culing Romney’s opposition. Portman says that Obama is being inaccurate and irresponsible in describing Romney’s position and that Romney supported government guarantees for loans as part of his formula to help the industry. Democrats, saying the bailout effort saved plants across the state and thousands of jobs, aren’t letting up on the issue. “Unfortunately for Sen. Portman and Mitt Romney, Ohioans know the truth,” said state Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern, who in a statement credited Obama with saving the industry while saying Romney turned his back on it. If Romney wins election, Portman’s name likely will be part of speculation for White House or Cabinet positions. Portman, 56, said he plans to remain in the Senate and thinks he could help a Romney presidency there by developing bipartisan efforts to “find common ground and get things done.” And if Romney falls short in Ohio and in the election, there probably will be secondguessing on whether having Portman’s name with his on the ballot would have made a difference. “I don’t want to speculate on how their vice presidential pick could have affected the race differently,” Obama Ohio campaign senior adviser Aaron Pickrell said, adding that he hasn’t seen Ryan helping Romney’s chances in the state despite frequent campaigning visits. “Who knows how Sen. Portman would have changed that?”

CINCINNATI (AP) — Procter & Gamble’s recently retired archivist made a career of preserving a company history that chronicled the nation’s consumer tastes. “So many companies do not put the resources against preserving their history, and as a result lose part of their soul,” Ed Rider told The Cincinnati Enquirer in an interview published Sunday. “In P&G’s case, many times our consumers have been using our products longer than our brand managers have been alive. Our products have been part of their family for generations. So we, P&G, need to respect and honor that relationship.” During his 32-year tenure, Rider and his staff sought out forgotten products that were used in the 18th and 19th centuries and paved the way for P&G’s influence. The archives are used by brand managers worldwide as they build on the equity of company history and name brands including Tide, Pampers, Crest and Gillette. According to Rider, the company archives provide a link between the product, the consumer and the

company’s history. “One way we encourage that is by preserving the history of that relationship — the advertising, the product samples, the promotions,” he said. “So, for example, when a consumer calls and asks for the words to the original Mr. Clean jingle that they recall hearing on TV as a child, we should be able to give them that information.” Without that link, Rider said customer loyalty could be damaged. “If our answer is, ‘We don’t save Mr. Clean history,’ that would tell the consumer that we really don’t value all the years this consumer has been using our product,” Rider said. Rider said the oddest item in the collection is movie star hair clippings acquired when P&G purchased the Max Factor Co. Its wig-making unit had to match wig hair to real hair and kept hair clippings in envelopes. “We preserved that collection and now have hair clippings of stars including John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and Elizabeth Taylor,” Rider said.

Ohio cracks down after meningitis outbreak

American Paint Recyclers 419-204-5934

DAYTON (AP) — The state of Ohio is cracking down on pharmacies that custommix individualized prescriptions after a deadly fungal meningitis outbreak linked to a Massachusetts compounding company. Jesse L. Wimberly, pharmacy inspector for the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy, tells the Dayton Daily News that the state is checking all 17 pharmacies statewide that custom-mix compound prescriptions. Those pharmacies are typically inspected at least once every three years. Wimberly says the state now requires pharmacies to specify how much of their business is strictly retail sales and how much is mixing up custom preparations. Eleven illnesses in Ohio have been linked to a larger meningitis outbreak and recalled steroid injections for back pain.

“An old error is always more popular than a new truth.”

High court weighs new look at voting rights law
By MARK SHERMAN and JAY REEVES The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Three years ago, the Supreme Court warned there could be constitutional problems with a landmark civil rights law that has opened voting booths to millions of African-Americans. Now, opponents of a key part of the Voting Rights Act are asking the high court to finish off that provision. The basic question is whether state and local governments that once boasted of their racial discrimination still can be forced in the 21st century to get federal permission before making changes in the way they hold elections. Some of the governments covered — most of them are in the South — argue they have turned away from racial discrimination over the years. But Congress and lower courts that have looked at recent challenges to the law concluded that a history of discrimination and more recent efforts to harm minority voters justify continuing federal oversight. The Supreme Court could say as early as Monday whether it will consider ending the Voting Rights Act’s advance approval requirement that has been held up as a crown jewel of the civil rights era. The justices sidestepped this very issue in a case from Texas in 2009. In an opinion joined by eight justices, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote then that the issue of advance approval “is a difficult constitutional question we do not answer today.” Since then, Congress has not addressed potential problems identified by the court. Meanwhile, the law’s opponents sensed its vulnerability and filed several new lawsuits. The advance approval, or preclearance requirement, was adopted in the Voting Rights Act in 1965 to give federal officials a potent tool to defeat persistent efforts to keep blacks from voting. The provision was a huge success, and Congress periodically has renewed it over the years. The most recent occasion was in 2006, when a Republican-led Congress overwhelmingly approved and President George W. Bush signed a 25-year extension. The requirement currently applies to the states of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia. It also covers certain counties in California, Florida, New York, North Carolina and South Dakota, and some local jurisdictions in Michigan and New Hampshire. Coverage has been triggered by past discrimination not only against blacks, but also against American Indians, AsianAmericans, Alaskan Natives and Hispanics. Before these locations can change their voting rules, they must get approval either from the U.S. Justice Department’s

DEAR EDITOR: All it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing This allowed Hitler to get on with his murderous ways in Europe during the 30s and 40s. Someone said “First they came for the unborn but I was already born so that didn’t concern me, then they came for the handicapped but I wasn’t handicapped so I wasn’t worried, then they came for the aged but I was young and didn’t care, then they came for the Jews but I wasn’t a Jew so that wasn’t any concern of mine, but when they came for me no one was there to help me. Don’t wait till they come for you. Fight the good fight with your vote. Consider the unborn, protect religious freedom and all constitutional rights and defend marriage as a union between one woman and one man as God intended for the procreation and the education of children. Ed Luersman, Fort Jennings DEAR EDITOR: Some Republicans continue to make false statements about President Obama’s leadership and what has been accomplished during his term in office despite the obstructions most Republican office holders in the House of Representatives and the Senate have practiced. The following are facts: Under President Obama, all the money used in the Bank Bailout Bill of 2008 signed by President Bush have been recovered plus $13 billion in interest. Regulations, transparency and restrictions have been put into effect on these bailed-out firms and their top executives to prevent what happened leading to the 2008 crisis from happening again. The Affordable Care Act did not and will not lead to the government takeover of health care. It put needed rules and regulations into the existing health insurance market, putting people and not insurance companies in charge of their health care. Government has not taken over health care but is protecting all Americans’ rights to health care. The president has strengthened the border and laws concerning illegal immigration into our country. There are fewer illegal border crossings than ever before. Those who are already here, have been given a legal path to citizenship, which they must follow if they wish to remain here. President Obama has not asked for new gun restrictions. Not one law-abiding citizen has had a gun taken away. In fact, under President Obama, national parks and Amtrak has been opened to the legal possession of guns. President Obama respects all religious beliefs and is committed to religious freedom for all and also to the rights of all women, including access to contraception, regardless of where they works. Those religious organizations objecting to providing contraception need not do so but their insurance company must offer free contraception. Auto manufacturing, parts suppliers, dealers, communities and businesses have benefitted greatly under President Obama’s leadership in saving the auto industry in spite of most Republican leadership. Senator Voinovich supported the president in accomplishing this. President Obama improved the GI Bill with the most generous benefits in the history of this great nation. He doubled funding for Pell Grants, helping millions more students to afford a college education. The middle class have lower taxes than when President Obama took office. He signed 18 tax cuts into law for small businesses. There is much more to be done but under President Obama, we are moving in the right direction. Send a message to Congress to support and assist the President to move this country forward and not commit to obstruction. Our country and the people in it are still and will continue to be the greatest on earth, regardless of the outcome of this election. God bless America for its greatness and honesty. Charles P. Sampson Jr. Delphos

DEAR EDITOR: To the vandals who destroyed and damaged our political, religious freedom and pro-life signs this weekend: We have not trespassed on your property and destroyed and damaged the political signs that you have displayed which are supporting your candidate and causes. So why have you seen fit to destroy and damage our political, pro-life and religious freedom signs and trespass on our property? If you think this will stop us from supporting our causes and our candidates, you are sadly mistaken. If you are juveniles and/or teenagers and think this was a funny joke, we feel sorry for you. People can disagree strongly with each other concerning the abortion issue, religious freedom and politics. Resorting to this type of childish and immature behavior is ridiculous. We’d rather see matters settled at the ballot box than in this manner. At first glance, it looked as the damage was caused by the wind. When I looked closer, I found that there were holes in some of the signs (which were still attached to the sign holders) and some of the sign holders had been broken apart. Then I knew it was not wind damage. This was deliberate vandalism. Sincerely yours, Mike and Marlene Wrasman

25 Years Ago — 1987 • The Allen County Historical Society has obtained a complete set of Sanborn fire insurance maps on microfilm for the city of Delphos. Maps exist for the years 1884, 1892, 1899, 1904, 1911, 1921 and 1946.

Obama cancels Florida campaign trip, returns to DC
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A strengthening Hurricane Sandy disrupted the campaign for the White House Monday, with President Obama canceling his political rallies and rushing back to the White House from battleground Florida to monitor the storm and get Air Force One safely back to Washington. Republican nominee Mitt Romney was campaigning in the Midwest out of the storm’s path Monday, but called off events scheduled in Virginia Sunday and New Hampshire Tuesday. Obama, mindful of his need to show command in crisis while in the final throes of a tough re-election campaign, met with federal emergency officials Sunday before flying to Orlando Sunday evening ahead of a scheduled morning rally. But in the middle of the night he signed emergency declarations for several New England states and by dawn decided to call off the politicking. “Due to deteriorating weather conditions in the Washington area, the president will not attend today’s campaign event in Orlando,” spokesman Jay Carney said in a written statement. “The president will return to the White House to monitor the preparations for and early response to Hurricane Sandy.” With eight days before

WASHINGTON -- We shouldn’t be talking about this silliness — Big Bird, “bull — er,” or a girl’s “first time.” We should be talking about The Issues, we keep telling ourselves. But in the waning days of the presidential campaign, these are the issues — binders full of cultural issues that continue to divide us and by which Barack Obama hopes to win re-election. It is no accident that the war of competing economic theories has devolved into the same old culture war, beginning with the debate about the contraception mandate under the Affordable Care Act. Ever since, the Obama campaign has strategically tried to push the Republican Party and Mitt Romney into a corner by advancing the war on women narrative. That Obama has had ample help from certain outspoken players (Missouri and Indiana Senate candidates Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, respectively, to name the most notorious) has only made Romney’s challenges greater. But the war against women has always been a red herring. Random comments by a couple of outliers provided wind for Obama’s sails. Akin’s remarks, that women don’t get pregnant when “legitimately” raped, was just idiotic and immediately dismissed by Republican Party leadership, including Romney. Yet Mourdock’s view, that a child conceived by rape is God’s will, deserves some perspective. Obviously, he wasn’t endorsing rape. He apparently belongs to that sliver of pro-lifers who insist that even babies conceived of rape are worthy of protection. They, too, are God’s children. Although most Americans, including those who are enthusiastically pro-life, sup-

civil rights division or from the federal district court in Washington that the new rules won’t discriminate. Congress compiled a 15,000-page record and documented hundreds of instances of apparent voting discrimination in the states covered by the law dating to 1982, the last time it had been extended. Among the incidents in the congressional record: —In 1998, Webster County, Ga., tried to reduce the black population in several school board districts after citizens elected a majority-black school board for the first time. —In 2001, Kilmichael, Miss., canceled an election when a large number of African-American candidates sought local office following 2000 census results that showed blacks had become the majority in the city. —In 2004, Waller County, Texas, sought to limit early voting near a historically black college and threatened to prosecute students for illegal voting after two black students said they would run for office. But in 2009, Roberts indicated the court was troubled about the ongoing need for a law in the face of dramatically improved conditions, including increased minority voter registration and turnout rates. Roberts attributed part of the change to the law itself. “Past success alone, however, is not adequate justification to retain the preclearance requirements,” he said. it, “malarkey.” Just possibly, a child could recognize the “bull — er” aspect to this nonissue, to borrow the phrasing of Obama during a recent Rolling Stone interview. The contraception issue never would have come up but for Obama’s decision to force the hand of the Catholic Church. By placing religious institutions in the position of having to provide health insurance to pay for contraception as well as sterilization, which, agree or not, are against church teaching, Obama created the conversation. Some church leaders support Obama’s position, but not the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Nor do many religious institutions, including University of Notre Dame, that have sued the Obama administration on First Amendment grounds. Obama reasoned correctly that he had the majority with him, especially among women and youth, for many of whom these debates seem antiquated to not-applicable. Hence, a new Obama ad by HBO “Girls” creator and star Lena Dunham in which she compares voting for the first time (for a man who understands women) to, you know, “doing it” for the first time. It’s ... what it is: A message to young women that losing one’s virginity is top of the bucket list, but first you gotta vote for the president who will give you free contraception. The same ol’ culture wars. But, of course, women have had access to birth control for decades and no one is trying to take it away. Anyone who suggests otherwise may have been spending too much time with Big Bird. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.

Point of View
port exemptions for rape and incest, Mourdock’s argument is not nonsensical. If life begins at conception, then one life is not worth less than another owing to the circumstances of creation. The embryo bears no blame. Given this context, Mourdock’s argument is logical. But we bend logic as needed. We weigh pros and cons and make difficult choices. Thus, most would resolve Mourdock’s Muddle as follows: Given the horror of rape and the consequences for the woman, we find for the woman. It is no good solution, certainly not for the gestating human, but it is acceptable to most. It is also certainly not a decision one should make for another. Mourdock may have been indelicate in stating his position, but he is hardly a monster for believing that the definition of life, like the definition of rape, should not be parsed. As to Romney’s choice to not comment, why would he? This is the ultimate no-win — and the answer is meaningless except as a political point — which perhaps explains the media’s insistence on a response. Romney’s position on the subject is clear. He supports exceptions for rape and incest. He also said early in the primary season: “Contraception, it’s working just fine. Just leave it alone.” So why are we still talking about it? This pseudo-debate is, as Joe Biden would put

Election Day, neither campaign could afford to fully shut down its political activity in a race that remains tight. Four critical election states are affected by the storm — North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and New Hampshire — but there was still unthreatened ground to cover across the rest of the country. Romney was scheduled Monday to campaign in the perennial battlegrounds of Ohio and Iowa. He also was visiting Wisconsin, trying to force Obama to play defense in a state where the president has been leading in the polls despite the addition of native son Paul Ryan on the GOP ticket.

Giants beat Tigers 4-3 in 10 innings for sweep
By BEN WALKER The Associated Press DETROIT — Smart pitching. Clutch hitting. Sharp fielding. Plus an MVP Panda. All the right elements for a sweet World Series sweep for the San Francisco Giants. Nearly knocked out in the playoffs time and time again and finally pressed by the Detroit Tigers in Game 4, Pablo Sandoval and the Giants clinched their second title in three seasons Sunday night. Marco Scutaro — who else? — delivered one more key hit this October, a goahead single with two outs in the 10th inning that lifted the Giants to a 4-3 win. On a night of biting cold, stiff breezes and some rain, the Giants combined the most important elements of championship baseball. After three straight wins that looked relatively easy, they sealed this victory when Sergio Romo got Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera to look at strike three for the final out. “Tonight was a battle,” Giants star Buster Posey said. “And I think tonight was a fitting way for us to end it because those guys played hard. They didn’t stop and it’s an unbelievable feeling.” Posey, the only player who was in the starting lineup when San Francisco beat Texas in the 2010 clincher, and the underdog Giants celebrated in the center of the diamond at Comerica Park. They built toward this party all month, winning six elimination games this postseason. In the clubhouse, they hoisted the trophy, passed it around and shouted the name of each player who held it. A total team triumph. “When pitching is your strength, you want a good defense,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “That shows up every day. ... Hitting sometimes, it comes and goes. But as long as you can stay in more games, the better chance you have of winning them, and that’s how we play.” Benched during the 2010 Series, Sandoval, nicknamed Kung Fu Panda, went 8-for16, including a 3-homer performance in Game 1. “You learn,” Sandoval said. “You learn from everything that happened in your career. ... We’re working hard to enjoy this moment right now.” Cabrera delivered the first big hit for Detroit, interrupting San Francisco’s run of dominant pitching with a 2-run homer that blew over the right-field wall in the third. Posey put the Giants ahead 3-2 with a 2-run homer in the sixth and Delmon Young hit a tying home run in the bottom half. It then became a matchup of bullpens and the Giants prevailed. Ryan Theriot led off the 10th with a single against Phil Coke, moved up on Brandon Crawford’s sacrifice and scored on a shallow single by Scutaro, the MVP of the NL championship series. Center ielder Austin Jackson made a throw home, to no avail. Santiago Casilla got one out in the ninth for the win. Romo struck out the side in the bottom of the 10th for his third save of the Series. The Giants finished the month with seven straight wins and their seventh Series championship. They handed the Tigers their seventh straight World Series loss dating to 2006. “Obviously, there was no doubt about it. They swept us,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “So there was certainly no bad breaks, no fluke. Simple, they did better than we did. It was freaky. I would have never guessed we would have swept the Yankees and I would have never guessed the Giants would have swept us.” The Giants combined for a 1.42 ERA, outscored the Tigers 16-6 and held them to a .159 batting average. An NL team won the title for the third straight season, a run that hadn’t occurred in 30 years. Some find the streak surprising, considering the AL’s recent dominance in interleague play. Yet as every fan knows, the club that pitches best in the postseason usually prevails. Until the end, the Tigers thought one big hit could shift the momentum. It was an alltoo-familiar October lament — Texas felt the same way when the Giants throttled it in 2010 and the Tigers knew the feeling when St. Louis wiped them out in 2006. Howling winds made it feel much colder than the 44 degrees at gametime. Two wrappers blew across home plate after leadoff man Angel Pagan struck out and fly balls played tricks in the breeze. The Giants started with their pregame ritual. They clustered around Hunter Pence in the dugout, quickly turning into a bobbing, whooping, pulsing pack, showering themselves with sunflower seeds. A big league good-luck charm, Little League-style. Once again, San Francisco took an early lead. Pence hit a 1-hop drive over the centerfield fence for a double and Brandon Belt tripled on the next pitch for a 1-0 lead in the second. The next inning, Cabrera gave the Tigers a reason to think this might be their night. With two outs and a runner on first, Cabrera lofted an opposite-field fly to right — off the bat, it looked like a routine out shy of the warning track. But with winds gusting over 25 mph, the ball kept carrying, Pence kept drifting toward the wall and the crowd kept getting louder. Just like that, it was gone. Cabrera’s homer gave Detroit its first lead of the Series, ended its 20-inning scoreless streak. In the fourth, Max Scherzer and catcher Gerald Laird teamed on a strike ’em outthrow ‘em out double play. Trailing for the first time since Game 4 of the NL championship series, Posey and the Giants put a dent in Detroit’s optimism. Scutaro led off the sixth with a single and clapped all the way around the bases when Posey sent a shot that sailed just inside the left-field foul pole for a 3-2 lead. Detroit wasn’t about to go quietly, however. Young, the ALCS MVP against the Yankees, made it 3-all with another opposite-field homer to right, this one a no-doubt drive. Prince Fielder finished 1-for-14 (.071) against the Giants without an RBI. Minus key hits, the Tigers remained without a title since 1984. All 24 teams to take a 3-0 lead in the World Series have won it all. In fact, none of those matchups even reached a Game 6. This was the first sweep for an NL team since Cincinnati in 1990. Working on 9-days’ rest and trying to extend the Tigers’ season, Scherzer kept them close into the seventh. Often recognized for his eyes — one is light blue, the other is brown — he’s also known as a solid postseason pitcher. Ditto-plus for Matt Cain, who was working on a nearly perfect year. The Giants’ ace threw a perfect game in June, was the winning pitcher in the All-Star game in July, beat Cincinnati to clinch the division series and topped St. Louis in Game 7 of the NL championship series. After they left, the relievers decided it. Octavio Dotel struck out

Posey to end the eighth. In the bottom half, Jeremy Affeldt got around a leadoff walk when he struck out Cabrera, a flinching Fielder and Young. Coke returned the favor in the top of the ninth, fanning the side. With Jose Valverde having lost his closer role during a shaky month, Coke stayed in for the 10th and faltered. The Giants became the first champion that hit the fewest home runs in the majors since St. Louis in 1982. The parade to a sweep masked the problems San Francisco overcame to get this far. Closer Brian Wilson pitched only two innings before an elbow injury ended his year. All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera was suspended 50 games for a positive testosterone test and not welcomed back when the ban ended. Two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum struggled and wound up in the bullpen. Swept in a 3-game set at Arizona to start the season, the Giants were floundering under .500 in mid-May. They soon hit their stride and, boosted by trade deadline deals for Scutaro and Pence, passed the Dodgers in the NL West for good in late August and posted 94 wins. Down 2-0 in the bestof-5 division series, they rallied for three straight victories in Cincinnati. Trailing the defending champion Cardinals 3-1 in the NLCS, they again took three in a row to advance, clinching in a driving rainstorm. The Giants became the first NL team since the Big Red Machine in the mid1970s to win two titles in a 3-year span. Shut out for 56 years — Juan Marichal, Willie McCovey and Barry Bonds never won it all — their self-described “misfits” captured that elusive crown in 2010. The Tigers’ flop finished off a season in which Cabrera became baseball’s first Triple Crown winner since 1967.

Johnson wins at Martinsville, takes points lead
By HANK KURZ Jr. The Associated Press
MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Jimmie Johnson dominated, as expected, at Martinsville Speedway. Brad Keselowski didn’t flinch. This championship duel might go down to the wire after all. Johnson, a 5-time series champion, raced to his seventh career victory on NASCAR’s trickiest oval Sunday and the triumph helped him erase a 7-point deficit and supplant Keselowski as the points leader with three events remaining. Even so, Johnson knows the title chase is far from over, that there’s plenty of racing yet to do. “I’m ecstatic about the win today and ecstatic about the points lead but this is no cake-walk,” Johnson said after the 59th victory of his career and fourth this season. “These guys are bringing their best each and every week. ... The next two races will tell the tale. Anything can happen. We could both wad it up next week and Clint Bowyer is your champion.” Johnson moved two points ahead of Keselowski, who finished sixth for his highest career showing at the track, and came away knowing that he’d more than held his ground on a track where he’s still learning and Johnson is as good as anyone. “He’s our competition and we’ve got to beat him,” Keselowski said. “We know that, but at some point you’ve got to do your own thing and just rely on what gets you to where you’re at, and what’s got us to where we’re at is just solid finishes when we don’t not right now.” Keselowski’s day was nowhere near as adventurous as Hamlin’s, but effective all the same. He started 32nd, methodically worked his way forward, and was never really a factor until he took a late gamble to grab the lead — and a crucial bonus point. He was leading the race briefly when a caution flag flew and he and Dale Earnhardt Jr. opted to stay out, then watched with surprise as the other 16 lead-lap cars all headed to pit road for fresh tires. “It’s at the end of the race and half the field had just pitted 20 or 30 laps ago,” Keselowski said. “If I was running 15th, I would have stayed out. I would have put ‘em in my shoes and said, ‘By golly, I would have stayed out.’ None of those guys did and I don’t know why. Well Dale (Earnhardt) Jr. did. He had some sense. It just wasn’t meant to be.” When the race went back to green with 19 laps to go, Keselowski was a sitting duck whose best bet was to hang on for as long as he could and then avoid any Martinsville mayhem that cropped up in a furious dash to the finish. Johnson, who led eight times for 193 laps, passed him on lap 487 on his way to making the race a bonus points bonanza. He got one for leading a lap, one for leading the most laps and three for the

have a shot to win the race. And we didn’t have a shot to win today and we got a solid finish, so I feel confident about that.” The series next moves to Texas and Phoenix before finishing up at HomesteadMiami. “I know this championship’s going to come down to Homestead,” Keselowski said. “You’ve just got to be in position to where you’ve got a shot at it and we’re doing the things it’s going to take.” Both drivers needed only to look at Denny Hamlin’s day to be reminded that things can go south fast. Hamlin seemed poised to get in the thick of it, and then had an electrical problem that sent him to a 33rd place finish and out of contention. “When these things happen, you’ve just got to suck it up and move on,” Hamlin said. “There’s nothing I can do about it. One of these days it’s going to be our time. It’s just

victory, wiping out a sevenpoint deficit. Kyle Busch was second, followed by Kasey Kahne, Aric Almirola, Bowyer, Keselowski, Jeff Gordon and Brian Vickers. On the final restart, Busch said he was trying to avoid spinning Johnson heading into turn one, but nudged him. Johnson slowed, and Busch too, and “when I went back to the gas, I spun my tires and got loose, and he squirted away from me.” Bowyer also had a great car, leading 154 laps, and Gordon led 92. Until the problems arose, Hamlin had put on a clinic about how to pass cars on the 0.526-mile oval. After his first pit stop, Hamlin was penalized for entering pit road too fast, a penalty that moved him to the back of the lead lap, which was 31st. Immediately, he started quickly working his way forward. After 200 laps, he was contending and actually left pit road with the lead, but again, he was penalized for speeding entering pit road, again dropping him to the back of the lead lap, this time 28th. He again worked his way into the top five until his problems dropped him 34 laps behind. Hamlin dropped 49 points off the pace. Bowyer is third, 26 back, and Kahne is 29 back.

TIFFIN — It’s all about next week. The State Cross Country meet, for the second year in a row at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, was what all the runners have been shooting for from the start of pre-season conditioning in late July/ early August to now. The Tri-County area will have a number of youngsters running in that race in both the Division III and II ranks after performances at Saturday’s Tiffin Regional at HedgesBoyer Park on a cloudy, chilly morning/afternoon. The Lady Bearcats of Spencerville finished fourth as a team and will be going on, led by senior Karry Purdy, who clinched 11th place (20:14:05) on the muddy course. “I didn’t run as well as I did in the NWC meet, where I set my personal record. However, you’re not going to run as fast on a course that’s this hilly and with the wet and slippery ground,” Purdy acknowledged. “I was here last year, so it helps to know a little bit about where you’re running. “It’s great that we’re going as a team. It’s a lot better and a lot more fun knowing I won’t be training alone this week and we’ll still be pushing each other. We all had a goal of our time and place but Coach (Brian McMichael) told us not to worry about it.” That was because the longtime mentor figured out the course wasn’t going to allow it. “With conditions like these, those go out the window; you aren’t worried about the times nearly as much. All you’re worried about now is running your best and not trying to do too much,” McMichael acknowledged. “Our goal today was how many we could pass in the final 150 meters; that was going to help us if we wanted to advance as a team. I believe every girl passed at least one person in that stretch and that was key. We have a solid four girls anyway but we needed number 5-7 to advance; we did that. “Karri ran a solid race today. We’ve been talking all year about running as a pack and running more and more up near the front as a team — which we have done as the season has progressed — but she’s the leader we need to help us along.” Other Lady Bearcats were Cierra Adams in 30th (21:07.85), Tori Hardesty 50th (21:38.28), Kacie Mulholland 65th (22:00.25), Schylar Miller 86th (22:37.73), Jennifer Burnett 98th (22:51.27) and Tesa Horton 124th (24:18.44). Two Kalida runners are going to Hebron: senior Jessica Doepker, making her third straight berth, in ninth (20:01.15) and freshman Katelyn Siebeneck in 14th (20:26.10).

“I was in the top 15 last year and want to do at least that and hopefully better this time. The pressure is on as a senior, knowing this was my last chance and wanting to do it again,” Doepker said. “Of course, the conditions aren’t going to allow you to really run fast but you want to run steady and make sure you’re on solid footing as much as possible. It’s all about advancing; where you finish isn’t that important except that it’s top 16. “It’s unfortunate that we finished ninth as a team.” Where Doepker seemed like “Steady Eddie” about going to State again, the freshman Siebeneck was excited. “It’s my first time and I can’t wait. It’s nice to go with Jessica because she’s been there and I know she can help me stay calm,” she added. For LadyCat coach Scott Miller, it’s bittersweet. “Jessica has been strong all season. You know what you’re going to get with her and she ran a solid race,” Miller said. “Katelyn has been running very well as a freshman. We’ve had the big three all season but the third, (sophomore) Jackie (Gardner), was 19th (20:52.20). It’s nice to have the senior and the freshman go; it’s an exciting time for them and for our program. “However, we’ve struggled with injuries all season, which finally caught up to us as a team. We had a couple even today that were running with nagging injuries and that isn’t helpful to running well when you have to; the competition is just too fierce.” Other LadyCats racing this day were Becca Brinkman in 116th (23:48.21) and Katie Schmitz in 134th (25:46.50). St. John’s junior Megan Joseph ended up 45th (21:35.21). “I don’t know what happened. I don’t remember much,” Joseph said. “It just seemed like I hit the 2-mile mark and wondered what happened; I just had a funny feeling. I’m glad to race here again after not making it last year due to injuries. I was in the 30s as a freshman and am just trying to get back up to where I was then.” For St. John’s coach Steve Hellman, who also had a freshman boy, Curtis Pohlman running Saturday at Boardman, it was still a good day. “It was nice to see Megan back here again. It was frustrating for her last year because of the injuries and she managed to race most of this year without them,” he added. “For her and Curtis, who finished 86th (18:26) in a rainstorm there, it was all about experience. You want them to finish as high as they can but you also want them to gain valuable experience about running at this level against this stiff competition. It’s only going to help down the road.” See RUNNERS, page 7A

The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Matt Ryan threw touchdown passes on Atlanta’s first three possessions against Philadelphia and new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and the Falcons remained the NFL’s only unbeaten team with a 30-17 victory over the Eagles on Sunday. The Falcons improved to 7-0 for the first time in franchise history while the Eagles (3-4) lost after a bye for the first time in 14 games under coach Andy Reid since 1999. Ryan finished 22-of-29 for 262 yards and three TDs for his first win against his hometown team in three tries. Michael Vick didn’t turn the ball over for once but played so-so and failed to beat his former team in his second start against the Falcons since returning to the NFL in 2009.
GIANTS 29, COWBOYS 24 ARLINGTON, Texas — Lawrence Tynes kicked two of his five field goals in the fourth quarter and Eli Manning and New York remained undefeated at Cowboys Stadium with a win after blowing a 23-point lead. The Giants overcame a fourthquarter deficit to win for the 20th time in Manning’s career. New York (6-2) led 23-0 just 2 minutes into the second quarter when defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown. That was the third interception thrown by Tony Romo, among six turnovers by Dallas (3-4). The NFC East-leading Giants didn’t score again until Tynes kicked a 43-yard field goal with 10:20 left for a 26-24 lead. He added a 37-yarder after Stevie Brown recovered a fumble. Dallas celebrated what seemed to be a 37-yard touchdown catch by Dez Bryant with 10 seconds left. But the play was reviewed, showing that Bryant’s hand touched out of bounds first. BRONCOS 34, SAINTS 14 DENVER — Peyton Manning shook off a bleeding right thumb after banging it on an opponent’s helmet to throw for 305 yards and three scores and lead Denver past New Orleans. It was Manning’s fifth straight 300-yard game, setting a franchise record for Denver (4-3) and matching his personal best. The Broncos gained 530 yards against the Saints (2-5), who came in with the NFL’s worst defense. Denver held Drew Brees and the league’s top-ranked passing offense to 213 yards passing in Joe Vitt’s debut as interim coach after serving a 6-game suspension for the team’s bounty scandal. LIONS 28, SEAHAWKS 24 DETROIT — Matthew Stafford threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Titus Young with 20 seconds left. Zach Miller made a spectacular, 16-yard catch on a toss from Russell Wilson with 5:27 left to put the Seahawks ahead. Seattle (4-4) couldn’t stop the Lions (3-4) on their last possession. Stafford led a 16-play drive that started at Detroit 20 with 5:27 remaining. The possession began with a 15-yard pass to Calvin Johnson and was kept alive with third-down conversion passes to Johnson in Lions’ territory and to Joique Bell to set up the winning score from just outside the goal line. STEELERS 27, REDSKINS 12 PITTSBURGH — The Steelers turned Robert Griffin III into just another rookie quarterback, swarming Washington’s precocious star in a dominant win. Griffin completed just 16-of-34 passes for 177 yards and a score while managing 8 yards rushing. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 222 yards and three touchdowns for the Steelers (4-3). Jonathan Dwyer added 107 yards rushing in his second NFL start. Pittsburgh jumped on Washington

(3-5) early, scoring on its first four possessions and never letting Griffin get loose. Heath Miller caught four passes for 46 yards and his sixth touchdown of the season for the Steelers. BROWNS 7, CHARGERS 6 CLEVELAND — Rookie Trent Richardson rushed for 122 yards and scored a touchdown in the Browns’ soggy, wind-whipped win. Richardson, pulled last week at Indianapolis when he was ineffective because of a rib injury, carried 24 times as the Browns (2-6) won their second straight game at home — first for new owner Jimmy Haslam. Richardson scored on a 26-yard run in the first quarter and the Browns were able to hang on despite not generating much offense in blustery, rainy conditions. The Chargers (3-4) dropped their third straight. San Diego had a final chance but quarterback Philip Rivers’ pass was batted away by Browns cornerback Buster Skrine with 1:24 left. Rivers finished 18-of-34 for 154 yards. PATRIOTS 45, RAMS 7 LONDON — Tom Brady led touchdown drives on the first five possessions and New England cruised at Wembley Stadium. The Rams looked ready to put up a fight when Sam Bradford hit Chris Givens with a 50-yard touchdown pass on the opening drive. But Brady cut through the St. Louis defense at will to give New England a 28-7 lead by halftime, then hit Brandon Lloyd for a 9-yard score to start the third quarter. New England surpassed 350 yards of total offense for the 17th straight game, breaking an NFL record set by the Rams in 19992000. COLTS 19, TITANS 13 OT NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Andrew Luck threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Vick Ballard at 4:49 of overtime. The Colts (4-3) have beaten Tennessee in seven out of eight overall and seven of the past 10 in Nashville. The Colts did it with Luck leading a pair of 80-yard touchdown drives. The top pick overall in April’s draft set up Delone Carter’s 1-yard TD run that tied it up at 13 with 3:24 left in the fourth quarter. In overtime, Ballard capped the drive, taking a screen pass and going up the left side where he jumped toward the goal line for the TD. The Titans fell to 3-5. BEARS 23, PANTHERS 22 CHICAGO — Robbie Gould kicked a 41-yard field goal as time expired to rally the Bears. The Bears trailed 19-7 in the fourth quarter when the game turned in a big way. Chicago (6-1) took over on the Carolina 38 after Brad Nortman shanked a 6-yard punt and Jay Cutler connected with Kellen Davis on a 12-yard scoring pass with just under seven minutes left. Then, on Carolina’s next play, Steve Smith slipped on a pass pattern and Tim Jennings returned his second interception of the game 25 yards for the go-ahead score. Cam Newton drove the Panthers to the Chicago 27 and Justin Medlock’s 45-yard field goal hit the right upright and went through to put Carolina (1-6) ahead 22-20 with 2:27 remaining. Medlock had five field goals. On the winning drive, Cutler moved the Bears 55 yards to the 23 to set up Gould’s kick. PACKERS 24, JAGUARS 15 GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers went back to an old favorite, connecting with Donald Driver on a 4-yard TD in the fourth quarter. Rodgers threw two touchdowns, passing Bart Starr for second place on Green Bay’s all-time list, and Dezman Moses gave the Packers their first touchdown on a blocked punt in almost 22 years. But Green Bay (5-3) had a surprisingly tough time with the NFL’s worst team. Playing without top receivers Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson, Green Bay’s offense struggled to find its groove all afternoon. Jacksonville (1-6), meanwhile, looked unfazed by the absence of Maurice Jones-Drew. Backup Rashad Jennings finished with 115 yards of offense and Cecil Shorts had a career-best 116 yards on eight catches.

On the boys side, Columbus Grove also is going as a team, finishing in fourth. Jake Graham took first (16:18.03) and Colton Grothaus was 16th (16:53.64) but head coach Terry Schnipke was not happy. “I am disappointed because I felt we could finish in third or even second. We struggled on this course; we ran terribly in the Carnival race earlier this fall,” Schnipke acknowledged. “I’m happy for Jake — he’s just such a strong runner who doesn’t allow anything to bother him — and Colton; he ran well under tough conditions. “However, Alex (Shafer) fell three times and I was expecting him to be in the top eight. Jerry (Kesselmeyer), who I expect to be in the low 40s, was 63rd (8:06.24). We have high expectations after returning most of the guys we had down at state last year. The good thing is I expect a better performance, especially Alex — I don’t anticipate three falls at Hebron.” Graham didn’t run his best race time-wise but was still happy. “My best time was at Celina (15:49) but you don’t worry about that today. I just wanted to run my race and be solid, so I’m happy to win the individual title,” he said. “My goal is to win state as an individual and help the team to win it as well. Our goal was to get back there as a team and we did that; we had some things go against us but still advanced and that’s all you worry about. We were seventh as a team last fall and hopefully, we can move up a lot.”

Shafer finished 18th (16:56.62), Grant Schroeder 31st (17:24.11), Logan Douglas 67th (18:08.51) and Nick Schmiesing 97th (18:32.58). The Lincolnview boys ended up fifth in Division III, led by the 26th of Bayley Tow (17:10.07) and Jeff Jacomet’s 40th (17:41.23). “We ran the best we could. The top four teams that advanced out of here are four of the best in the state; you’re going to have to run very well to beat them,” Lancer coach Matt Langdon explained. “There were about six teams we knew were ahead of us and we had to run our best to catch them. We did that except for the top four; in all honesty, though, those four were going to have to run poorly and us our best to have a chance. We held up our end but they didn’t on theirs. “We’re disappointed because the kids know they can do better than they did but that’s the nature of high school sports in Ohio.” Alex Rodriguez was 45th (17:45.04), Skyler Whitaker 49th (17:46.42), Ben Bilimek 54th (17:51.50), Trevor Neate 71st (18:12.92) and Travis Lippi 77th (18:17.78). Crestview has one runner advancing; sophomore Mycah Grandstaff; advance to state by ending up 11th (16:48.37). They finished ninth as a team. In Division II, Van Wert’s boys had three members — Jared Fleming, Kase Schalois and Conner Holliday — advancing by finishing first (15:57.31), ninth (16:29.09) and 14th (16:37.81). However, the team failed to make it, barely missing in fifth.

The BCS Average is calculated by averaging the percent totals of the Harris Interactive, USA Today Coaches and Computer polls. Team percentages are derived by dividing a team’s actual voting points by a maximum 2,875 possible points in the Harris Interactive Poll and 1,475 possible points in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Six computer rankings are used to determine the overall computer component. The highest and lowest ranking for each team is dropped and the remaining four are added and divided to produce a Computer Rankings Percentage. The six computer ranking providers are Anderson & Hester, Richard Billingsley, Colley Matrix, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin and Peter Wolfe. Each computer ranking accounts for schedule strength in its formula.

Mohawks take midget football title

8A – The Herald

Monday, October 29, 2012



DELPHOS — The Delphos Mohawks figured it out the second half. They turned to their front line to pave the way for the running game as the Mohawks won their 12th title since 1961 with a 22-8 pasting of St. Marys Stallions on a brisk and windy Sunday at Stadium Park. Tied at 0-0 heading into the second half, the Mohawks (7-1) recovered an onside kick as the ball hit off a Stallion (5-3) player and Troy Schwinnen recovered at the St. Marys’ 48. It was the Schwinnen show from then on (24 totes, 133 yards). Behind the offensive line of Grant Czukker, Logan Hubert, Matt Dickrede, Evan Grothouse and Brady Welker, he ran the ball all seven times to paydirt. At the Stallion 4, he took a handoff between right guard (Grothouse) and right tackle (Welker) and wouldn’t be denied the end zone. He added the 2-pointer for an 8-0 lead with 5:00 showing in the third. A batted pass by Curtis Schwinnen on 4th-and-5 at the Mohawks’ 46 gave Delphos the ball back and all the momentum. Troy Schwinnen ran seven times for 42 yards in the 9-play series. At the St. Marys’ 8, Schwinnen went off left guard (Hubert) and made one cut inside and to the goal line. The conversion run failed for a 14-0 edge with 6:07 left. The Mohawks again grabbed a hard onside kick, hitting off a front-liner and Schwinnen recovering at the visitor 49. Four plays hence at the 14, Conner Hulihan threw down the left side into the end one and Schwinnen made a great catch for the touchdown. Schwinnen ran in the 2-pointer for a 22-0 edge with 3:19 to go. Skylar Koester this time ran back the longer kickoff 23 yards to the Delphos 47. It took eight plays for the Stallions to get the goose-egg off their side of the scoreboard. On 4th-and-3 at the 5, Tanner Stephens swept left end and score with seven seconds left. He added the 2-pointer and the final margin. Neither team could piece together a scoring drive in the hard-hitting first half. The closest any could come was on the game’s third series when the Mohawks started at the visitors’ 35 but failed on a 4th-and-6 at the 13. In the consolation matchup, the Delphos Raiders fin-

Early detection is your best protection

Awareness is the first step in the fight against breast cancer. Van Wert County Hospital is proud to be one of only four hospitals in Ohio to offer Breast Specific Gamma Imaging or BSGI. This early stage breast cancer diagnostic tool helps your physician see what matters, especially in women with difficult-to-image breasts. BSGI is the next step after a questionable mammogram.

Box Office

‘Argo’ finally tops box office with $12.4M
LOS ANGELES (AP) — It took three weeks, but “Argo” finally found its way to the top of the box office. The Warner Bros. thriller from director and star Ben Affleck, inspired by the real-life rescue of six U.S. embassy workers during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis, made nearly $12.4 million this weekend, according to Sunday studio estimates. “Argo” had been in second place the past two weeks and has now made about $60.8 million total. Debuting at No. 3 was the sprawling, star-studded “Cloud Atlas,” which made a disappointing $9.4 million. The nearly three-hour drama, also from Warner Bros., was co-directed by siblings Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer and features an ensemble cast including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Hugh Grant playing multiple roles over six story lines. Dan Fellman, head of distribution at Warner Bros., said the studio thought there might be a good chance of “Argo” coming out on top this weekend. “We’re thrilled. An accomplishment like that is well deserved, they don’t happen very often. You would probably have to do a lot of searching to find a movie that opened in wide release to have two No. 2 weekends in a row and hit No. 1 in the third week,”

Fellman said. “It’s a tribute to the film. Word-ofmouth has taken over the campaign. We have a long way to go, we have a lot of year-end accolades which will approach, and we’ll see what happens in terms of the Academy.” On the flip side, Fellman acknowledged that “Cloud Atlas” underperformed compared to hopes that it would end up in the $11-12 million range domestically. The movie had an estimated budget of $100 million. But he pointed out that it had a higher per-screen average than any other film opening in the top 10 with $4,681. “We did very well on the East and West coasts in a number of major cities,” he said. “We’re challenged in the Midwest and the South.” It was a soft weekend all around, though, with several newcomers opening poorly, Hollywood. com box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian pointed out. The horror sequel “Silent Hill: Revelation 3-D” from Open Road Films debuted at

No. 5 with $8 million and the Paramount Halloween comedy “Fun Size” arrived in 10th place with just over $4 million. “Chasing Mavericks,” an inspirational surfing drama from Fox 2000, didn’t even open in the top 12 — it came in at No. 13 with $2.2 million. The World Series might have been a factor in keeping folks away from the theaters; also, potential moviegoers along the East Coast in the path of Hurricane Sandy might have stayed home this weekend. Estimated ticket sales are for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood. com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released today. 1. “Argo,” $12.4 million. 2. “Hotel Transylvania,” $9.5 million. 3. “Cloud Atlas,” $9.4 million. 4. “Paranormal Activity 4,” $8.7 million. 5. (tie) “Silent Hill: Revelation 3-D,” $8 million. 6. “Taken 2,” $8 million. 7. “Here Comes the Boom,” $5.5 million. 8. “Sinister,” $5.07 million. 9. Alex Cross,” $5.05 million. 10. “Fun Size,” $4.1 million.

shipment under a billion-dollar contract with NASA. The California-based SpaceX company successfully guided the Dragon down from orbit to a splashdown a few hundred miles off the Baja California coast. “This historic mission signifies the restoration of America’s ability to deliver and return critical space station cargo,” Elon Musk, the billionaire founder and head of SpaceX, said in a statement. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden praised the “American ingenuity” that made the endeavor possible. Several hours earlier, astronauts aboard the International Space Station used a giant robot arm to release the commercial cargo ship 255 miles up. SpaceX provided updates of the journey back to Earth via Twitter.

The Herald –3B

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012 Don’t give up too easily on anything that you’ve worked hard for, just because it still hasn’t come to fruition. The year ahead is a new ball game, in which many happy surprises could be in the offing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You’re not apt to be wishy-washy when it comes to making a critical decision. By letting others know where you stand, you’ll have a big advantage. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Spend your precious hours working on worthwhile endeavors. If you fail to use your talents and time productively, chances are you’ll suffer feelings of guilt. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You’re a born organizer, so when you step in to restore order in a chaotic condition created by others, even you’ll be amazed at your performance. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Although you might be somewhat reluctant to commit yourself, if you fail to use your time wisely, chances are you’ll regret it. Focus your efforts on personal or spiritual advancement. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Because you’re so well equipped to handle projects of a mental nature, you should be able to see things from a practical yet innovative point of view. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Working to your advantage is your gift for amassing financial or material gain. If you’re forced to work with intangibles, however, you won’t do as well. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -There are times when it’s prudent to focus on your personal interests at the exclusion of everything else, and it may be one of those days. Help yourself first so you can then assist others. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Certain answers that you’re searching for will not be found using outside sources. Find a quiet place where you can think things out for yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you’re in dire need of an attitude adjustment, try to find a new endeavor in which to immerse yourself. The more interesting the project, the more successful you’ll be. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Friends or colleagues might be intimidated by challenges, but you won’t be. There are all kinds of indications that you would welcome a development that could test your mettle. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Financial matters can be dealt with quite effectively if you keep your cool. Trade on what turned out well in the past, because what worked before should work well again. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Sometimes we’re better at managing the affairs of others than we are our own, which could be the case for you presently. However, helping others out could prove a boon for you, as well. WED., OCTOBER 31, 2012 There is an excellent chance that in coming months an endeavor in which you’re involved could turn out much bigger than you or anybody else realized. Make the most of this pleasant surprise. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Don’t take anything for granted where your work or career is concerned. If you get a bit cocky and think you have all the answers, you won’t listen to the warnings all around you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Take care not to reject out of hand something that you didn’t consider or think of on your own. Many ideas will come from unusual sources, and you can’t afford to reject them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It might be a good idea to have someone double-check your work. There is an excellent chance you could goof up on a minor point that would make a major difference. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Much of your time could get devoted to insignificant endeavors if you’re not on your toes. Don’t expend your energy on inconsequential affairs. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It’s admirable of you to speak of family members in glowing terms, but don’t go so far as to attribute to them accomplishments that they never had anything to do with. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Know what you’re getting into before signing any document or agreeing to do something for another. Check on what’s involved before making assumptions. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If you fail to pay attention to all the details involving a commercial arrangement, just because you don’t care, chances are high that you will get bested by someone who cares quite a bit. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Just be yourself instead of attempting to behave in ways you think are expected of you. If your performance isn’t believable, it could hurt your image instead of enhancing it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Should you be called to task on something you promised but failed to do, don’t try to respond with a lot of excuses. Instead, set a definite time line and get it done. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t participate when a couple of catty friends voice unflattering remarks about another pal who isn’t present. If you do, the absent party will later find out what was said and hold you personally accountable. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- An unfriendly co-worker is just waiting for you to do something wrong. Don’t give this person any cause to use your actions against you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You might be more interested in what you have to say than in listening to some sage advice from a friend. When you get into trouble later on, you’ll wish you had been all ears.
