Buettner brothers take Honor Flight

By STEPHANIE GROVES DELPHOS On Sept. 8, Pfc. Thomas L. Buettner and Petty Officer 2nd Class Ellis Gene Buettner were honored with a trip to Washington, D. C., to visit and reflect at their memorials. Both Gene and Thomas feel as if the experience brought them the recognition they did not receive when they returned home from war there were no parades, no heros welcome and very few thank-yous. We felt humbled and appreciated, Gene explained with emotion. It gave me goose bumps. Thomas son Michael and grandson Travis traveled alongside both as guardians throughout the trip. Their Honor Flight, which was a day trip, began with a flight from Port Columbus International Airport to Baltimore Washington International Airport. After landing, they were honored with a water canon salute sprayed onto the plane by a fire truck. The brothers then boarded a tour bus and were transported to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., where the tour took them to the National World War II Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. A short bus ride later, Gene and Thomas arrived at Arlington National Cemetery, where they experienced the reverence of the The Tomb of the Unknowns, which has been perpetually guarded since July 2, 1937, by the U.S. Army, and the Iwo Jima Memorial/U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial. The day of sightseeing wrapped up with a flight back to Columbus, where they were surprised with quite a homecoming celebration. Family members, service members, Boy Scouts and OSU band members welcomed them back.

Suppers On Us cook passes


Jim Wilcox, 66, of Delphos, and owner of the former Knotty Pine in Fort Jennings, died Thursday at Zusman Community Hospice in Columbus. Wilcox also worked for Clark Equipment for 18 years. He was the kitchen manager at the Delphos Eagles Lodge for 12 years and was currently enjoying his retirement by volunteering his cooking skills to whoever needed them, especially with Community Unitys Suppers On Us program every Thursday evening. His true passion was cooking for others. He served in the Navy Reserves in Lima then went into active duty on the U.S.S. Wasp during the Vietnam War. He was also a member of the St. Johns Band Boosters and Athletic Boosters and a devoted St. Johns supporter. See the full obit on page 2.

Looking through scrapbook photos of their Honor Flight, brothers Thomas, left, and Gene Buettner reminisce about their trip to D.C. ahead, I ran ahead and was the first soldier back to the barracks. In 1945, Thomas began his tour of duty in France after the Battle of the Bulge, where his company, the 42nd Rainbow [Infantry] Division, replaced the soldiers of the 242nd Regiment wiped out by the Germans in Hattan, France. He trained for combat as an assistant BAR gunner and was required to carry extra ammunition and clips of solid tracers used to destroy sniper-ridden houses and train stations. In case of capture, he could disassemble a BAR in

Thomas served in the United States Army from 1944-46 as a Private First Class (Pfc.). He received his basic training at Camp Robinson in Little Rock, Arkansas, and was assigned to the 7th Army, 42nd Infantry Division, 1st Battalion, 242 Regiment, Company B.

Guardsman Gorman returns home from Bahrain

BY NANCY SPENCER DELPHOS Things often change for soldiers with little notice. National Guardsman Jim Gordon, 49, was given orders he would be going with a brigade to Afghanistan with 1st Charlie Co. 37th Special Troops Battalion out of Springfield last October. He ended up in Bahrain. We went to Camp Shelby in Mississippi and the mission was cut by almost 67 percent or 900 troops, Gordon explained. Myself and 17 soldiers were then assigned to Task Force Buckeye and sent to Kuwait and then Bahrain. There were four separate missions for 500 troops with the main focus on entry control. We had four guard towers and were a quick-reaction force. Bahrain is a small island country situated near the western shores of the Persian Gulf. It is an archipelago of 33 islands, the largest being Bahrain Island, at 34 miles long by 11 miles wide. Saudi Arabia lies to the west and is connected to Bahrain by the King Fahd Causeway. Iran lies 120 miles to the north of Bahrain, across the Gulf. The peninsula of Qatar is to the southeast across the Gulf of Bahrain. Gordons job was in administration near the Royal Bahrain Air Force Base and his troops were there for protection. They like the U.S. They were happy we were there. They were very polite. We got along with them great, he said. We helped protect them. Bahrain is an island about 40 miles long and 15 miles wide. Bahrian is also near the Strait of Hormuz, the only sea passage from the Persian Gulf to the open ocean and one of the worlds most strategical-

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz if the U.S. and E.U. impose sanctions against Iran. Life in Bahrain was not easy. It made Gordon and his men thankful for the simple things in the U.S. Drinking water was questionable and there was no grass or trees, he expounded. The days are hot and the nights are cold. There was very little rain. The troops did have more recreation time than their counterparts in Afghanistan and other more volatile places. We could go to dinner See GORDON, page 12

Where has NANCY SPENCER the year gone? Its already November. To many peoples surprise, weve already had a Christmas story in the paper. Im sure with the economy, the Delphos Community Christmas Project will need every bit of time they have to pull together a nice holiday for those who need a little boost. Its tough out there and every penny will count. It will be that way for many of us, I fear. Most of us are fortunate and have jobs. It may not be the one we want or need but a job none the less. Ive written several times of how I feel perhaps one of the most necessary of holidays the one where we are supposed to count our blessings and be thankful for what we have is going to be lost in the commercial frenzy known as Christmas shopping season. Stores are already offering Black Friday pricing to move as much merchandise as they can before the dreaded Christmas markdown. Trees and tinsel have popped up everywhere. Enter Facebook. If youre a fan, youve been seeing all the thankful posts. In my little corner of the world, Im already plotting and planning that special meal that brings our families and loved ones together for food, fellowship and yes, football. The turkey will roast and fill the house with that delectable, mouth-watering smell. The potatoes will be bubbling on the stove and the deviled eggs will disappear before the meal hits the serving dishes. Well bow our heads and say a prayer of thanks for all who are around our table and those who could not be there for whatever reason. My mom, friends and my sister-in-law and I will chat while we clean the table, put away leftovers and do the dishes. The men will head into the living room to watch a game and soon the soft contented sound of snoring will waft into the kitchen as us girls play Spite and Malice. Now thats what Im talkin about. Thanksgiving will be a tough holiday for some, too. A Thanksgiving feast may be out of reach and some will find little to be thankful for. But its the little things we need to give thanks for. If you are breathing, be thankful. Many will face a Thanksgiving with one or more empty chairs. If you have a roof over your head, be thankful. Many are homeless. If you have food, be thankful. Many people are wondering where their next meal will come from. If you have a job, rejoice. You all know what its like out there. If you have your health, dance. There is always someone else who has less and is more thankful for it than those who have more.

On the banks of yesteryear ...

ing soldiers had gone home, after the horrible images had faded somewhat, many of them began to miss the friendships and camaraderie that they had shared during the war. Out of this, the Grand Army of the Republic was formed. In Delphos, Post #95 of the GAR was named after Captain Rudolph Reul, a local doctor who had formed a company of all Delphos men to fight for the Union. Because this group never opened to other war veterans, it eventually died out. The Spanish American War in 1898 was the first our country fought on foreign soils. At the end of the war these veterans, many who came home sick or wounded, found there were no provisions for medical care or veterans pensions for them, nor did the government show any interest in providing for their sacrifices. In their misery, a group formed that would become the VFW or Veterans of Foreign Wars. The Delphos VFW Post #3035 was not chartered until 1935 and was named in memory of two Delphos soldiers who were killed in WWI., Charles S. Walterick and George H. Hemme. To be a member of this group, one has to have been in combat on foreign soils. This group still has an active post in Delphos. At the end of World War I, hundreds of thousands of American soldiers found themselves trapped in France, told that logistically it would be weeks or months before they could be transported home. To boost morale, a patriotic group was formed and named the American Legion. Locally, Commemorative Post #268 of the American Legion, was chartered in 1920 and the first commander was Leonard Stallkamp. The Legion is open to all persons who served their country during times of conflict. This post is also still active. World War II ended in 1945 and as the number of returnees swelled into the millions, it was evident that some sort of nationally organized assistance for them would be needed. The older established national groups were available to them, but the leaders of this new generation of veterans wanted their own organization and formed the American Veterans of World War II. AMVETS Post #27 of Delphos was organized that same year with Roger Hoverman as commander. It was named

Ohio to weigh more time on its health care plan

From the Delphos Canal Commission

COLUMBUS (AP) Ohio officials are evaluating a move by the federal government to give them more time to work on plans for a key component of President Barack Obamas health care law. The administration sent in a letter to governors Friday saying it still wants to hear by the end of next week if states will be setting up new health insurance markets under the law. States that cant or wont set up these new insurance exchanges will have theirs run by Washington. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said states can now take another month, until midDecember, to submit detailed blueprints.

Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you? Fanny Brice, American actress and singer (1891-1951)

A Salute to All Veterans! Back in 1957, 11 young men from the area were sitting in Dickmans Restaurant shooting the breeze and trying to solve the problems of the world. The employment situation was not very good at the time so these guys decided to join the Army. Nine of them went to Lima on Monday to enlist. They were: Bob Calvelage, Bob Heitmeyer, Kenny Kramer, Gene Krietemeyer, Gene Metzger, Jim Miehls, Orville Neidert, Louie Saum and John Wittler. All nine of the young men became part of the 4th Armored Division of the U. S. Army. After surviving boot camp, eight of the guys were sent to Germany but Kenny Kramer was kept back in the states to fill a position of clerk. This was during the Berlin Crisis in Operation Gyroscope. While Bob Heitmeyer and John Wittler were stationed in Nurnberg as MPs, the other six were stationed in Schwabisch. The best thing about their tour of duty was that four of the guys lived in the same barrack, with the other two living in the barrack next door. Their job in Germany was to guard the Czechoslovakian Border. It wasnt just a picnic, sometimes the temperature dropped to 30 degrees below zero. This was peacetime in Bavaria so there were weekends for relaxin time. Now for the project at hand. The Jennings Memorial Association has plans for a Hall of Honor (for all veterans) in the Jennings Memorial Hall. A temporary chart is in the hall but we need your help to make the list complete. The Bicentennial Book committee could not locate a complete list of veterans. The list in the book was compiled from church and local history books, cemetery plaques, records kept by Alfred Jack Schimmoeller and continued by Carl Schimmoeller and by the American Legion Post 715 membership records. The following is a revised list of veterans of or from the community of Fort Jennings. This includes any veteran from the town, school district, Jennings Township and parts of Jackson Township and Sugar Creek Township. This includes those who live there now or have lived there in the past. If you have a name to be added or a correction to be made, please call Helen Kaverman at 419-695-3378 or Dickmans Insurance at 419-692-2236. War of 1812 veterans 1812 1814 William Cochran, Jim Cochran, Thaddeus Harris, Ellison Ladd, James Martin, James Thatcher and Elias Wallen. Civil War - 1861 to 1865 Simon Allen, Isaac Barnes, Frederick G. Bauman or Bowman Mathias Boberg, Henry Bode, Amos Boehmer, Fred P. Bowan Jr, W. H. Chandler, Emanuel Clapper, John Discher, Lester Dunlap, Ferdinand G. Eggeman, Frederick Eggerman, John Evans, John W. Fields, Robert Good, Presley Good, William Green, John Grothaus, Theodore R.

DEAR EDITOR: Having voted since the election of Franklin Roosevelt, I have never seen such a disparity between the rural voters and the big city voters. Three-fourths of Putnam County voted for Romney. Also everywhere we drove in Ohio and part of Michigan the Romney signs outnumbered the Obama signs by at least ten to one. It makes me happy to know that such a large percentage of the rural area voted Christian values, but sad that so many Ohio voters did not. Did they not know the intrinsic evils that they were buying into or was there that much voter fraud? Ed Luersman Fort Jennings

The Blue Jays then dominated the rest of the night, scoring 47 unanswered points to rout the Crimson Streaks 54-21 in a game delayed by lightning in the fourth period.

OHIO DIVISION OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is 6 fish per angler with a minimum size limit of 15 inches. The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler. The minimum size limit for trout and salmon is 12 inches. The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler with a 14-inch minimum size limit. Wind, waves and muddy water have limited most opportunities on Lake Erie over the past week (as of Tuesday) As the lake starts to clear up expect walleye fishing to improve around the islands and from Cedar Point to Lorain; most walleye are caught in the fall by trolling crankbaits in open water or by fishing at night nearshore and around piers. Fall yellow perch fishing can also produce some of the best catches of the season; most perch anglers fish around the islands or within a few miles of the ports from Huron to Conneaut. ... The water temperature is 45 degrees off of Toledo and 50 degrees off of Cleveland according to the nearshore marine forecast. ----WILD OHIO Tree Stand Safety. Better And Easier Than Ever Wear a full body safety harness and use a climbing safety strap whenever your feet leave the ground. Columbus The ODNR, Division of Wildlife, would like to remind hunters to wear a Full Body Safety Harness (FBSH) and use a climbing safety strap whenever their feet leave the ground. Tree stands (elevated platforms) are one of the most popular pieces of equipment used by deer hunters in Ohio and nationwide. However, due to human error and/ or equipment failure, the number of debilitating or fatal injuries resulting from their use is higher than it should be. Statistically, one out of three hunters will fall from a tree stand at some point in his or her hunting career. Given that statistic, it is imperative that the proper safety gear be used--and used correctly. In the past, hunter-education organizations stressed the need for hunters to use either a single waist belt or a chest harness that was directly attached to the tree with a strap or tether. Unfortunately, it has been found that a waist belt or chest harness can severely restrict a persons breathing and upper body movements in the event of an unexpected fall. In some instances, these devices have even caused death because they failed to properly support the weight of a person who remained suspended for long periods of time after falling. Today, all hunter and huntereducation organizations recommend wearing a FBSH that distributes the hunters weight throughout their shoulders, chest, waist and legs thus securely supporting a fallen person without causing added harm or injury. Here are a few tips to help prevent accidents this hunting season. Always use a FBSH and read manufacturer instructions before use. Before using your FSBH in the field, practice using it at ground level. Always use a climbing safety strap. Most accidents occur when climbing up or down from a tree stand. Never climb with anything in your hands. Always use a haul line to raise and lower your equipment. For more safety tips, visit the DOWs Tree Stand Safety page or to check your knowledge of tree

stand safety take a free, online Tree Stand Safety Course from The Treestand Manufacturers Association (TMA). Visit the ODNR Web site at ----Rabbit, pheasant and quail hunting seasons underway COLUMBUS The hunting seasons for some of the states


most popular game species ring-necked pheasant, cottontail rabbit and bobwhite quail began Nov. 2. The states cottontail rabbit population has been very good recently. However, Nathan Stricker, project leader with ODNRs Olentangy Wildlife Research Station, said rabbit populations tend to go through an upand-down cycle every 7-10 years. Rabbit numbers are lower this year but this type of decline is expected with this cycle, Stricker explained. Regardless of these cyclical changes, cottontail rabbit populations are excellent throughout Ohio and provide plenty of opportunities for a family hunting outing. Quail and pheasant populations may be lower than previous years; Stricker added these are heavily dependent upon quality habitats on private lands provided by the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Williams and Defiance counties in northwest Ohio have strong pheasant populations because of the habitat contributions by local landowners. Upland game populations are responding positively to habitat programs in other areas around the state, especially in counties with significant enrollment in the Scioto Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program and Quail Buffer practices in CRP known as CP33. Cottontail rabbit hunting continues through Feb. 28, 2013. Ring-necked pheasant hunting is open through Jan. 6, 2013. Both seasons are closed during the statewide 2012 deer-gun hunting season, Nov. 26-Dec. 2. Rabbits, pheasants and quail may be hunted from sunrise to sunset. The daily bag limit for all three species remains unchanged from last year: four rabbits, two pheasants (roosters/males only) and four quail. Hunters are reminded that snowshoe hares are not legal game in Ohio and should not be hunted. These were recently reintroduced to northeastern Ohio after nearly a century of absence. They are brown early in the season, which makes them resemble cottontail rabbits; to avoid confusion between cottontail rabbits and snowshoe hares, portions of Geauga and Ashtabula counties will be closed to all rabbit hunting through Dec. 2. At that time, hunters will be able to distinguish between the two rabbits since most snowshoe hares will have turned white by early December. Two restricted hunting zones cover portions of Geauga and Ashtabula counties. The first encompasses parts of the counties bordered by U.S. 6 to the north, U.S. 322 to the south, Kile Road to the west and SR 534 to the east. The second restricted area is in Ashtabula County bounded on the north by CorkCold Springs Road, on the west by Windsor-Mechanicsville Road, on the south by New Hudson Road and on the east by U.S. 45. A map of these two areas can be viewed in the 2012-13 Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations and at Pheasants are released in selecting hunting areas throughout the state by the DOW prior to opening day of the pheasant season, the second Saturday of the season (today) and Thanksgiving Day. Bobwhite quail hunting is open in 16 counties in southern Ohio:

Adams, Athens, Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Highland, Jackson, Meigs, Montgomery, Pike, Preble, Ross, Scioto, Vinton and Warren. The season continues through Nov. 25. Additional hunting information is contained in the 201213 Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations, which are available where hunting licenses are sold, online at or by calling 800-WILDLIFE. ---Get those cameras ready The fifth annual Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp Photo Competition will feature Ohios many native turtle species found throughout the state in many different habitats, from woodlands to lakes to swamps. ----Extended Hotline hours The 1-800-WILDLIFE (9453543) hotline hours will be extended during the deer-gun hunting season until 7 p.m. To report wildlife violations and other illegal activity, Ohioans are encouraged to call TIP (Turn-In-a-Poacher) at 1-800-POACHER (762-2437). ----Populations steady for upcoming Furbearer Hunting, Trapping seasons COLUMBUS Ohios annual furbearer hunting and trapping seasons begin today for certain species. Good furbearer populations are expected this year, according to the ODNR. Following the mild winter of 2011-12, most populations of furbearing species are doing very well, said DOW Biologist Suzie Prange. We anticipate fur takers will have a good season for most species. Fox, raccoon, opossum, skunk and weasel hunting and trapping seasons are open through Jan. 31, 2013. Mink and muskrat trapping seasons are open through Feb. 28, 2013. However, raccoon, opossum, skunk, weasel, mink and muskrat trapping seasons will remain open through March 15, 2013, only in Erie, Ottawa and Sandusky counties as well as Lucas County east of the Maumee River. Coyote hunting and trapping has no closed season with an unrestricted bag limit. Special hunting regulations for coyotes apply during the statewide deergun season, Nov. 26-Dec. 2 and Dec. 15-16, and deer-muzzleloader season, Jan. 5-8, 2013. Beaver and river otter trapping seasons are open Dec. 26

through Feb. 28, 2013; beaver trapping is open statewide. For the eighth year, 43 counties will be open for river otter trapping. These were reintroduced into Ohio from 1986-93 and have increased their range in the state. River otters were removed from Ohios Endangered Species List in 2002. Full details of open counties as well as checking and permit requirements can be found in the Ohio River Otter Trapping Regulations or at There will be no daily bag limits or restrictions on hours for hunting and trapping furbearers, with the exception of river otters. These are dependent on the

county where it was trapped. A fur taker permit is required in addition to a valid Ohio hunting license to hunt or trap furbearing animals, except for coyotes, which may be hunted or trapped yearround without a permit. A special ODNR Division of Wildlife permit is required to trap beaver and river otter on state public hunting areas. River otters that are accidentally captured, either in excess of bag limits or in closed counties, must be released unharmed. Those that cannot be released must be turned over to ODNR DOW. Beaver trappers in particular are advised to watch for river otter sign and modify set placements where necessary. The Ohio State Trappers Association and DOW have published a guide on how to recognize river otter sign and use avoidance techniques while trapping for beaver in areas closed to river otter trapping. A copy of the publication can be ordered by calling 800-WILDLIFE. Ohio is among the nations leading producers of raw furs. Last year, 22,195 fur taker permits were sold in the state. The state currently has 65 licensed fur dealers. Additional hunting and trapping information is available in the 2012-13 Ohio Hunting Regulations, at or by calling 800-WILDLIFE. ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at

After three bumpy years, Europe turns corner on crisis

By DAVID McHUGH and DON MELVIN The Associated Press FRANKFURT, Germany The worst of Europes financial crisis appears to be over. European leaders have taken steps to ease the panic that has plagued the region for three turbulent years. Financial markets are no longer in a state of emergency over Europes high government debts and weak banks. And this gives politicians from the 17 countries that use the euro breathing room to fix their remaining problems. Threats remain in Greece and Spain, and Europes economy is forecast to get worse before it gets better. But an imminent breakup of the euro now seems unlikely, analysts say. We are probably well beyond the worst, says Holger Schmieding, chief economist at Berenberg Bank in London. He says occasional flare-ups in financial markets are likely, but coming waves of turmoil will be less severe. Evidence that Europe has turned a corner can be found in countries falling borrowing costs, rising stock markets and a slow but steady stabilization of the regions banking system: The interest rates investors are demanding to lend to struggling countries such as Spain and Italy have plunged a sign that investors are less fearful about defaults. Spains two-year bonds carry an interest rate, or yield, of just under 3 percent down from a July 24 peak of 6.6 percent. Italys bond yields have dropped just as sharply. The Stoxx 50 index of leading European shares has surged 26 percent since June 1, while the euro has risen from $1.26 to $1.29 over the same period. After months of withdrawals, deposits are trickling back into Greek and Spanish banks, signaling that fears of their imminent financial collapse are abating. And U.S. money market mutual funds loaned 16 percent more to eurozone banks in September. That was the third straight monthly increase in short-term funding to European banks, and follows a 70 percent reduction since May 2011. More proof the crisis is easing: Gatherings of European financial ministers no longer cause global stock and bond markets to gyrate with every sign of progress or a setback. As financial-market panic recedes, euro leaders have more time to try to fix the flaws in their currency union. Among the challenges are reducing regulations and other costs for businesses in order to stimulate economic growth, and imposing more centralized authority over budgets to prevent countries from ever again spending beyond their means. Thats important because a major cause of the crisis was Greeces overspending during the calm years after the euros introduction in 1999, and Italys failure to cut the high levels of debt it joined with. Other governments such as Spain and Ireland were saddled with debt piled up by banks and real estate developers during boom years. Much of the credit for easing Europes financial crisis goes to the European Central Bank, which has become more aggressive over the past year under the leadership of

Up to 11,000 people flee Silvers a pop-culture star Syria in 24-hour period

By JOCELYN NOVECK The Associatec Press By ZEINA KARAM and JOHN HEILPRIN The Associated Press BEIRUT As many as 11,000 people fled Syria in 24 hours, some of them desperately clambering through a razor-wire fence into Turkey on Friday to escape fierce fighting between rebels and government forces for control of a border town. The exodus is a sign of the escalating ferocity of the violence, which has killed more than 36,000 people since March 2011. Despite the bloodshed, embattled President Bashar Assad insisted there was no civil war in Syria, saying in a rare TV appearance that he was protecting Syrians against terrorism supported from abroad. The flood of Syrians into neighboring Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon was the highest that we have had in quite some time, said Panos Moumtzis, the U.N. refugee agencys regional coordinator for the region. About 2,000 to 3,000 people are fleeing Syria daily, and the recent surge brings the number registered with the agency to more than 408,000, he said. During the 24-hour period that began Thursday, 9,000 Syrians crossed into Turkey including 70 who were wounded and two who then died, U.N. officials said. Jordan and Lebanon each By ROBERT BARR The Associated Press absorbed another 1,000 refugees. The largest flow into Turkey came from the fighting at Ras al-Ayn in the predominantly Kurdish oil-producing northeastern province of al-Hasaka. The town hugs the border, practically adjacent to the Turkish town of Ceylanpinar. On Thursday, rebels captured a border crossing between the two towns, Ceylanpinars mayor, Ismail Aslan, told The Associated Press by telephone. Rebels on Friday overran three security compounds in the town belonging to the military intelligence, air force intelligence and general intelligence directorate agencies, according to the Britainbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition activist group. More than 20 soldiers were killed in the fighting, the Observatory said. Regime forces shelled rebel positions Friday morning, Aslan said. Regime tanks were also moving in to join the fight, according to another opposition activist group, the Local Coordination Committees. Syrias more than 2 million Kurds, long marginalized, have largely stayed out of the fighting, although some have taken part in demonstrations against Assad. But like other minority groups, they have increasingly been drawn into the fighting. NEW YORK The other night, Nate Silver got a little taste of what things are going to be like for him, post-Election 2012. The 34-year-old statistician, unabashed numbers geek, author and creator of the muchread FiveThirtyEight blog at The New York Times had gone out for a drink with friends on Manhattans Lower East Side. But he couldnt stay incognito; immediately, he says, people sitting at the bar recognized him. He was surprised, but probably shouldnt have been. After all, for 24 hours, ever since his election forecasts had proved uncannily successful he correctly predicted the presidential winner in all 50 states, and almost all the Senate races hed been hailed as the elections other winner, whod silenced doubters and proved the value of a cool-headed, math-based approach. That very night, hed appeared on Jon Stewarts The Daily Show for the second time in three weeks. Dont you want to stand up and say, I am Nate Silver, bow down to me!! Stewart roared, as the bespectacled Silver sat and chuckled. His name was trending on Twitter and he was the subject of a satirical Twitter hashtag, Drunk Nate Silver.

Mario Draghi. The ECB said Sept. 6 that it was willing to buy unlimited amounts of government bonds issued by countries struggling to pay their debts. The ECBs pledge instantly lowered borrowing costs for Spain and Italy, which earlier in the year had faced the same kinds of financial pressures that forced Ireland, Greece and Spain to seek bailouts. Financial market confidence has visibly improved, Draghi said Thursday during a press conference. The ECBs actions are reminiscent of the aggressive action by the Federal Reserve in the United States in late 2008 and early 2009 after the financial crisis hit. The Fed offered banks cheap loans and started buying bonds to ease long-term borrowing rates and boost the confidence of consumers and businesses. The Fed didnt solve the problem of high unemployment. But its actions defused panic in the financial markets and helped restore the health of U.S. banks. The Fed bought time for the economy to begin to heal.

after he linked to it on Twitter an hour after the first network call for President Barack Obama. (This is probably a good time to link to my book, hed tweeted at 12:13 a.m. the closest he came to gloating.) Even so, Silver says he wasnt quite prepared for that incident in the bar. Its odd, he said Thursday in a telephone interview from his Brooklyn home. Is this going to happen every day, as opposed to once a month? I still have to get accustomed to this. Silver, who uses computer models that he runs on a beatup laptop at home, is quick to acknowledge the accomplishments of others using similar methods. Its a little strange to become a kind of symbol of a whole type of analysis, he said. And he noted that similar work was being done with, for example, weather, all the time. You have to give those forecasters way more credit, he said. Their forecasts have real life-and-death consequences In politics, too, others have used similar computer models to predict races. What Silver has done, though, is not only arrive at a formula that uses aggregated polls and other weighted factors to achieve his predictions, but to write about them in an accessible and engaging way.

27 inmates killed in Sri Lanka prison shootout

By BHARATHA MALLAWARACHI The Associated Press COLOMBO, Sri Lanka A shootout between rioting prisoners and security forces at a prison in Sri Lankas capital killed at least 27 inmates, while police said today that they arrested five prisoners who had managed to escape and were searching for others. Another 42 people were wounded in the shootout Friday between inmates and army and police commandos that broke out after the rioting prisoners briefly took control of at least part of the Welikada prison in Colombo. The situation at the prison had returned to normalcy by this morning. The prison is now totally under our control, said prison chief P.W. Kodippili, whose facility was the site of another riot earlier this year. Dr. Anil Jasinghe, director of the Colombo National Hospital, said the bodies of 16 inmates were at his hos-

pital. Kodippili said that security forces had found the bodies of 11 other inmates inside the prison premises, and that the total number of deaths stood at 27. Twenty-three inmates who were injured in the clash were receiving treatment at the hospital, Jasinghe said. Thirteen police officers, four soldiers, a prison guard and a passer-by also were being treated there for injuries. Police spokesman Prishantha Jayakody said five prisoners who escaped from the prison had been arrested. Kodippili declined to say how many inmates may have escaped, but said search operations were under way to find others who may have fled. Jayakody said the fighting began when police commandos went to the prison to conduct a search and were attacked by inmates hurling stones. He declined to provide more information. Officials often conduct raids for narcotics and communication devices.

Ex-oilman Welby named archbishop of Canterbury

LONDON How will Justin Welby lead the worlds Anglicans and heal their deep divisions? Even he is not sure yet. Welby generated high hopes but few clear expectations Friday as British Prime Minister David Cameron announced the 56-year-old former oil executive was being promoted to archbishop of Canterbury after only a years experience as a bishop. We dont know much about him and there are very few expectations because he has been a bishop for such a short time, said Paul Handley, managing editor of the Church Times newspaper. But, he said, initial signs were very encouraging and impressive. Welby, appointed last year as bishop of Durham in northeastern England, worked for 11 years in the oil industry, rising to treasurer of Enterprise Oil before deciding he was called to the priesthood. A skilled mediator who has worked to resolve conflicts in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa, he will lead a global Anglican Communion riven by sharply divided views on gay people and the place of women in the church. As the 105th holder of a post that stretches back to the 6th century, Welby takes over after Rowan Williams retires in December. Welby said he felt privileged and astonished to be chosen to lead the church at a time of spiritual hunger. Its something I never expected, Welby told reporters, saying he had been overwhelmed and surprised to be offered the job. Welby declined to take questions about the contentious issues of female bishops and the churchs attitude toward homosexuals and said I dont have a detailed plan for promoting growth in the church. Reaction to his appoint-

are the three big junk mail themes. Apparently, no one with an email address is getting enough of these three things -- or, if they are, theyre paying too much for them. So when you see an email for half-price Viagra, its a spam trifecta: sex, medicine and money, all in one email. Not that there is any getting away from ED. The commercials are all the same: A guy in good shape, about 45, is windsurfing or rock climbing or cycling or jogging. He couldnt be in better shape; he couldnt be more attractive. But he suffers from a horrible affliction that I had never thought of as a big problem until Viagra was advertised on TV in 1999 in a commercial starring Bob Dole, who never mentioned the product. Its odd that now impotence can be talked about a thousand times a day on TV, but I feel awkward mentioning it here, because people will write letters saying how disappointed they are to read about this kind of filth in a family newspaper. Because, as we all know, the family that reads the newspaper together -- hey! Would you stop

sexting and listen to me? Im over here! Look down! Watching ED commercials with the sound off, youd think the companies were selling a cure for rock climbing, surfing, cycling, jogging, cooking or gardening. And while a cure for those activities is desperately needed and would no doubt improve countless lives, thats not the drug thats being sold. It is a cure for a condition that, in many cases, is caused by consuming too much beer and/or watching too much TV instead of exercising. How many windsurfers and rock climbers suffer from ED compared with men whose only exercise is climbing in and out of their cars when they go to the doctor who is treating their adult-onset diabetes? And then to Hooters for lunch? Why do I never get spam telling men theres a free cure for some cases of ED? All you have to do is take a shower and shave and stop walking around the house in dirty sweatpants. Coming home sober, washing the dishes and cleaning the bathroom without being asked have been known to work, too. But who is going to spam you with that? Theres no money in it.

as well. You could, of course, say that your side dish is also your gift, or, as you did previously, you could simply not attend. Dear Annie: My heart goes out to In the Middle. We, too, have a grossly overweight daughter and have tried every way we know to help her. I have paid for just about every diet there is, only to find her cheating. It kills me to see her this way. She is the most beautiful girl and has a heart to match. She is now 35 and still cant see what she is doing to herself. She has three children and teaches kindergarten. She nearly lost her job because she could not bend down to the childrens level. She is often at the doctors office. Her knees ache, and she cant walk very far, but no physician has said a thing about her weight. I know we must let her lead her own life, but I cant stand to hear her complain about her knees and then find candy wrappers all over the house. We are so afraid she may end up with diabetes, heart disease and who knows what else. A parent never gives up on their child, no matter what. We Are There and It Hurts Dear Hurts: It is not giving up to allow your daughter to see that she is responsible for her own health. All you can do is love her as she is for as long as you can.

Tomorrows Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2012 Your ability to effectively communicate with people from all walks of life will be greatly enhanced in the year ahead. Youll be able to make your points whether you do so in person or through one of your usual avenues. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Several endeavors to which youve given considerable time yet have never received the type of returns that you hoped for could finally begin to pay off. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You might begin undergoing some major transformations regarding your fondest hopes and expectations. At the head of the list will be establishing a better set of values. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Chances are youll be far more effective over the next few weeks if you can operate independently. Only if a partnership arrangement guarantees certain advantages should one be made. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If youve wanted to make a trip of some distance and duration, this is a good day to start getting your act together. Youre in an excellent cycle for traveling to faraway places. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Plans to which you have already given considerable thought should not be changed at the last minute. If your concepts are good, everything will work out to your satisfaction. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -In a partnership arrangement, greater control and influence might be given to your counterpart. In order to keep the peace, dont make any waves. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If you make it your greatest priority, the possibility of achieving an important objective is excellent. Give it your undivided attention, and it will pay off. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There are strong indications that you are likely to meet someone new who will end up having a strong and wonderful influence on your social life. If not today, then soon. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Make those necessary alterations to a financial development that hasnt lived up to expectations. Chances are, the adjustments youll make will turn out to be perfect. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A new cycle you recently entered could turn out to be not only exciting but also extremely fortunate in terms of new friends and social contacts. Be sure to get out and mingle a lot. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The general trends that affect your material well-being over the coming months are likely to turn out to be extremely favorable. Its time to dedicate your time to profitable endeavors. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you rely more upon yourself and less upon others, your success will be substantially enhanced. Establish your own goals and set your own timetable. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2012 Before moving on to some new endeavors in the year ahead, make sure the ones you are presently involved in have nothing of quality left to offer. You might be pleasantly surprised at what you find. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Those with whom you have dealings will immediately sense that youre not apt to be making idle promises. Your mind will be focused on making good on your commitment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Your financial prospects look to be quite promising. Its possible that you might receive some extra gains through your own efforts and an arrangement set up by another. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Taking a situation at face value is not likely to be one of your weak points. In fact, youre more likely to be interested in whats behind a facade than what is in front of it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Although youre in a good achievement cycle right now, you still might not get everything you pursue on your first try. If you should fall short of your mark, simply regroup and try again. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Should a bright idea flash through your mind regarding how you can constructively revitalize a flagging relationship, try it. Chances are itll work. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Because you are so easily motivated, your possibilities for achieving your goals are better than usual. Youll know what you want, and youll know how to get it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your situation might dictate needing to concentrate strictly on the immediate, but it wouldnt hurt to look ahead a bit as well. Plan now for future action. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -If there is something that you feel can be changed for the better, dont suffer in silence. Instead of waiting for others to take action, make the adjustments yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Difficult decisions wont be resolved by ignoring or sidestepping them. Look these problems straight in the eye and take whatever steps necessary to remedy them. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Even if you get a few additional responsibilities dumped in your lap, youll be able to handle them. In fact, getting successful results will give you a sense of pride. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your managerial skills are functioning at all levels. Associates will find you to be quite compatible and easy to get along with, yet you can be quite serious and dedicated when necessary. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Although this could be a rather hectic day, you should still be able to find the time to conclude several matters that need to be completed. They may all be interrelated, which could help.

and get afternoon passes, he said. We were more fortunate than others. The Delphos native also enjoyed some sightseeing, visiting museums and mosques and the Tree of Life, which turned out to be a little disappointing. The Tree of Life doesnt live up to its name, he said. It was a little rough looking. Part of Gordons job was to make soldiers realize many of their fellow soldiers are not so lucky. With 29 years of service to his country under his belt, Gordon returned home and quickly left again to attend Sergeant Majors Academy, the final leadership course for enlisted soldiers. Once completed, Gordon will attain the highest rank. Grodon began his military career to help pay for college. After three years in the Army, he was ready to hang up his uniform and hit the books. Then he talked to an in-service recruiter who told him more college benefits were available. After six years with an additional year for schooling, Gordon stayed on to reach 10 years.

Once you hit 10 years, you might as well do 20. Im at 29 and Im playing it by ear. Ill stay in as long as theyll have me, he said. Ive had three knee surgeries and Im not a young man anymore. They dont let you stay if you cant make the physical requirements. I want to stay as long as I enjoy it and am actively producing. I dont want a desk job. So Im playing it by ear. Gordons wife of 22 years, Ellen (Odenweller), is pleased to have her husband back. During the year he was gone, she ran the couples business, JP Drainage Solutions, and kept up with household maintenance and repairs. She did have help from Gordons brothers, Nick and Joe. We both have certain ways we do things so I did things my way while he was gone, she said. The hardest part was during the winter. I missed him a lot more then. Its dark when you get up and dark when you go to bed. It got a little lonely. The family support meetings help and there are excellent family readiness groups. Nonetheless, Ellen will be happy to spend the upcoming holidays with her soldier.
