Sr. Mary Georgene says goodbye to St. John’s
BY STACY TAFf email@example.com “I’ve been having some medical issues and I actually spent a couple days at Van Wert County Hospital back in August,” she said. “While I was there, I really thought about it. There are a lot of stairs here and it’s getting more and more difficult going up and down them. Medically, retiring makes sense.” For her next move, Sister Georgene will head to Toledo, where she hopes to be of use to the Toledo Diocese and her order, the Sisters of Notre Dame. “I don’t have anything planned yet but we’ll see what happens when I get up there,” she said. “Maybe there’s a mission up there around Toledo I can help out with. I’m sure the sisters I live with will steer me towards something. The main thing I’m planning on is to keep things simple.” Sister Georgene said farewell to her fellow faculty members Monday at a going away/retirement party and shared some fond memories of her career at St. John’s. Even though she has a legion of moments to take with her, one in particular sticks out. “I remember when they first built the All Saints Building, everybody was voting on what to name it,” she said. “I was with some kids one day and everyone was putting names out for it and I remember saying ‘There

Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869
DELPHOS — When most educators retire, they head off into the sunset with every intention to take it easy. Sister Mary Georgene of St. John’s Elementary School may already be technically retired but she didn’t fully withdraw from the school until Monday. “I guess my official retirement was about six years ago,” Sister Georgene said. “But I’ve been coming in about once a week — any day they want me to — to help out Sue May and Patty Dickman, the two other fourth-grade teachers.” When Sister Georgene started teaching 35 years ago, it took her a little while to find her niche. “I actually started back in the 60s with first grade and did that for a year or two,” she said. “Then in the 70s, I taught second grade for a The Delphos Public year or so.

Israeli airstrike kills Hamas militant chief
ohio executes killer who stabbed, mutilated woman
By AnDreW WeLsH-HUGGins the Assocaited Press LUCASVILLE — Ohio carried out its 49th execution of the modern era smoothly while facing the possibility of a protracted legal battle ahead of the 50th execution next year. Brett Hartman was declared dead at 10:34 a.m. Tuesday, about 17 minutes after the single powerful dose of pentobarbital began flowing into his veins. “I’m good, let’s roll,” Hartman said after declining a final statement. He then smiled in the direction of his sister and repeatedly gave her, a friend and his attorney a “thumbs up” with his left hand. “This is not going to defeat me,” Hartman then said to warden Donald Morgan, who didn’t respond. Hartman was sentenced to die for stabbing Winda Snipes of Akron 138 times, slitting her throat and cutting off her hands. The effect of the pentobarbital did not seem as immediate as in other executions at the state prison in Lucasville, in southern Ohio. Four minutes after Hartman first appeared to be reacting to it as his abdomen began to rise and fall, his abdomen rose and fell again, he coughed and his head shifted rhythmically for a few moments. His sister, Diane Morretti, dabbed at her eyes during the process. Both Hartman’s attorney, David Stebbins, and prisons system spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said the gap between Hartman’s movements was not out of the ordinary. Hartman was the 49th inmate put to death since Ohio resumed executions in 1999. The next inmate scheduled to die, Ronald Post, weighs more than 400 pounds and wants his execution stopped out of fear he would suffer severe pain as executioners tried to access his veins, which his attorneys argue would be all but impossible because of his weight. Post also says his weight could break the gurney in the death chamber. The state disputes Post’s claims, and even went so far as to place 540 pounds of weights on the gurney for two hours to prove him wrong. Hartman, 38, acknowledged that he had sex with

Snipes early on the morning of Sept. 9, 1997 at her Akron apartment. He also says he went back to Snipes’ apartment later that day, found her mutilated body and panicked, trying to clean up the mess before calling 911. But Hartman said he didn’t kill her, a claim rejected by numerous courts over the years. A former co-worker and friend of Snipes who witnessed the execution said afterward that the family was relieved the case was over and that the continuous rounds of appeals and media reports about the case were at an end. Jacqueline Brown of Doylestown in northeast Ohio also flatly dismissed Hartman’s innocence claim. “He’s very, very, very guilty,” she said afterward. “Now Winda can be at peace, and that’s what it’s all about.” Stebbins read a statement from Hartman’s family in which they professed his innocence and asked for additional testing of scene evidence. “We hope that the taking of Brett’s innocent life might serve as a wake-up call to the flaws in our legal system,” the statement said.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — An Israeli airstrike killed the commander of the military wing of Gaza’s Hamas rulers today, Hamas officials and Israel confirmed, in a dramatic resumption of Israel’s policy of assassinating Palestinian militant leaders. Ahmed Jabari was the most senior Hamas official to be killed since an Israeli invasion of Gaza four years ago. Jabari has long topped Israel’s mostwanted list and was notorious in Israel, which blamed him for in a string of attacks, including the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit in 2006. Witnesses said Jabari was traveling in a vehicle in Gaza City when the car exploded. Crowds of people and security personnel rushed to the scene of the strike, trying to put out the fire that had engulfed the car and left it a charred shell. Hamas police cordoned off the area around a hospital where at least one body from the strike was taken. It was draped in a white sheet, with a burned leg poking out. Hamas said another man was killed in the airstrike. Hamas police said three other airstrikes hit other targets in Gaza City, Khan Younis and Rafah. Israeli officials had said that they were considering assassinating top Hamas officials following a wave of rocket fire from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip at southern Israel, triggering Israeli airstrikes. The exchanges appeared to be waning on Tuesday, but the killing of Jabari is likely to re-ignite the flare-up. Israeli military officials, speaking on condition of anonymity under army regulations, said Jabari was identified by “precise intelligence” gathered over several months. Advocates say targeted killings are an effective deterrent without the complications associated with a ground operation, chiefly civilian and Israeli troop casualties. Proponents argue they also prevent future attacks by removing their masterminds.

County approves Report troubles southwest Ohio Ohio cancer cluster families racino project
LEBANON (AP) — Commissioners in southwest Ohio’s Warren County have approved plans for a $175 million “racino” about 30 miles north of Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the facility approved Tuesday will combine horse racing with up to 2,500 slotslike gambling terminals. Construction is expected to start in December, and it’s slated to open in 2014 if the state approves. The 120-acre site near Interstate 75 will employ about 700 people. It is expected to include a grandstand, restaurants and other buildings. It wouldn’t be the state’s first so-called racino. Scioto Downs in Columbus opened one in June, and others are in the works. Cincinnati also is getting a new casino, which is scheduled to open next spring.
CLEVELAND (AP) — A 2-foot alligator rescued by a sewer district crew is getting a new home with the Cleveland zoo’s educational programs. Workers rescued the reptile last week to keep it from freezing to death in the city sewer system and put it in warm water to revive it. The zoo says it plans to keep the gator, now named Jenni, under quarantine for a month. Then it will become part of on- and off-site educational programs. It’s not clear how the reptile ended up in Cleveland’s Big Creek, though there’s been speculation that an owner might have set it loose in response to the new Ohio law that requires owners to register exotic animals.

CLYDE (AP) — Some families whose children are part a northern Ohio cancer cluster say they’re troubled after soil samples from a former park showed high levels of a chemical believed to increase the risk of certain cancers in humans. Attorneys for the family members cite a recent report prepared for the federal Environmental Protection Agency about park grounds in the Clyde area, where at least 35 children have been diagnosed with cancer since the mid-1990s. The report says soil samples taken near a basketball court showed metals and PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, in amounts exceeding EPA levels. The report says a tip left on a hotline indicated a company used a black sludge-like material to fill in the area near the court. The family members planned a news conference today.

HAMILTON (AP) — A 12-year-old girl who authorities say was locked in a basement for weeks testified Tuesday that she was held under cold showers, slapped, spanked and fed peanut butter sandwiches for punishment. The girl, her older sister and a social worker were among those who testified on the first day of the trial for Shawn and Joanna Blackston, the 12-year-old’s father and stepmother. The trial is to continue Wednesday in a Butler County court. Shawn Blackston, 40, and Joanna Blackston, 37, of Middletown, have pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of child endangering for allegedly locking the girl in the basement as punishment. The couple could get up to six months in jail if the judge finds them guilty, a court official said. The girl clutched a teddy bear and rocked in a chair as she spoke in court, The Hamilton JournalNews reported. She told the court that she had to ask to use an upstairs bathroom, and her parents would give her two or three pieces of toilet paper. She acknowledged that she sneaked out of the house, found food in a neighbor’s
trash can and returned to the basement. The girl’s older sister, identified by The Cincinnati Enquirer as Shawna Blackston, 18, testified earlier that the 12-year-old was kept in the family’s basement to protect younger children in the home after the 12-yearold threatened to hurt them. The younger girl was not identified. The older sister also told the court that the younger girl was forced to sit on a porch in a thunderstorm for about 30 minutes and was “soaked,” the JournalNews reported. Attorneys for the Blackstons have described a different situation at the home. They said the 12-yearold wouldn’t obey her parents, destroyed her clothes and other items in the basement, and once threatened to kill her 2- and 3-year-old siblings, the JournalNews reported. The parents’ attorneys did not immediately return calls for comment Tuesday from The Associated Press. A Butler County Children Services caseworker testified that the girl was underweight when authorities found her in the basement this summer after an anonymous tip alleged child abuse.

Obama pressing business and labor on fiscal cliff
By KEN THOMAS The Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is lobbying business and labor groups to support his plan to avoid an impending fiscal cliff, telling the two sides he remains committed to requiring the wealthy to pay more in taxes. Obama was meeting today with about a dozen business executives as the White House and Congress face a series of expiring tax cuts and across-the-board spending cuts scheduled to take effect because lawmakers failed to reach a deal to reduce the federal debt. Business groups want an agreement before the end of the year, warning that the uncertainty could roil the financial markets and harm the economic recovery. The White House meeting follows a gathering of labor leaders and liberal groups Tuesday in which participants said Obama remained clear that he would push for his campaign pledge of making the wealthiest Americans pay more in taxes. “We’re prepared to stand up to make sure there is shared sacrifice here, so the rich actually start paying their fair share and the middle class don’t get soaked for that,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Obama was expected to speak in greater detail on the year-ending lame-duck session of Congress at a White House news conference today. Failure to act would lead to spending cuts and higher taxes on all Americans, with middle-income families paying an average of about $2,000 more next year, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. The president pledged to raise taxes on the rich during his first term but backed off his stance in late 2010 after Republicans seized control of the House in the midterm election. During his meeting with labor leaders, Obama said he was not going to bend on letting tax cuts expire for top wage earners, according to a participant in the meeting who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the private session. The president said the tax issue was clear during the election and said he had extended those enacted during the George W. Bush administration once and would not do so again, the participant said. The CEOs have urged

Ryan: Shocked at loss, Obama won fair and square
WASHINGTON (AP) — The polling and other data and all the smart people watching the election gave Rep. Paul Ryan an optimistic view on the night of last week’s election. When Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney lost, his running mate felt “a bit of a shock.” “Going into Boston that day, we felt like we had a pretty darn good chance of winning,” Ryan told ABC News in an interview broadcast Tuesday. “So as you can imagine, it was a bit of a shock when we didn’t win, but that’s just the way these things go.” Ryan said President Barack Obama deserves to be congratulated for having “a fantastic ground game.” “He won fair and square,” Ryan said of Obama. “He got more votes, and that’s the way our system works, and so he ought to be congratulated for that.” Had he been at the top of the ticket, Ryan said, he would have run exactly the kind of campaign that Romney oversaw. Ryan said he and Romney “felt very good about the race we ran.” Ryan, who was re-elected to an eighth term in the House, returned to the Capitol on Tuesday to resume his duties as House Budget Committee chairman. “There’s an upside to losing,” Ryan said, “which is a reconnection with my family.” He said he had already attended basketball and volleyball games in which his children — he has two sons and a daughter — were playing and looked forward to taking his daughter deer hunting. “Bad news: Dad lost. The good news: They get to stay at the same school,” he said.
Lawmakers probe widening generals scandal
By KIMBERLY DOZIER and NANCY BENAC The Associated Press cially concerned over reports that Broadwell had classified information on her laptop, though FBI investigators say they concluded there was no security breach. President Barack Obama is expected to make his first comments on the widening scandal today, during a postelection news conference at the White House. Obama had hoped to use the afternoon news conference, his first since his reelection, to build support for his economic proposals heading into negotiations with lawmakers on the so-called fiscal cliff. But the scandal could overshadow his economic agenda this week, derail plans for a smooth transition in his national security team and complicate war planning during a critical time in the Afghanistan war effort. Allen has been allowed to stay in his job as commander of the Afghan war and provide a leading voice in White House discussions on how many troops will remain in Afghanistan — and for what purposes — after the U.S.led combat operation ends in 2014. But Obama put on hold Allen’s nomination to become the next commander of U.S. European Command
Congress to extend the Bushera tax cuts until a tax overhaul can be reached and prevent the spending cuts from taking place. The executives say the uncertainty over the fiscal cliff is hurting the nation’s business climate and preventing hiring. Obama will meet with several CEOs, including the heads of Aetna, Honeywell, Wal-Mart, Procter & Gamble and Ford. The participants include members of the Campaign to Fix the Debt, a group founded by Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles that has pushed for a long-term plan to fix the nation’s debt and deficits. Simpson, a former Wyoming senator, and Bowles, a former White House chief of staff, served as co-chairs of Obama’s bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, which proposed $3 in spending cuts for every $1 in additional revenues. Among the CEOs attending the meeting are General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt, who chairs Obama’s jobs council, and American Express CEO Kenneth Chenault and Xerox CEO Ursula Burns, who are members of the council.
WASHINGTON — Lawmakers are digging into the tangled tale of emails that exposed an extramarital affair ending David Petraeus’ CIA career and led investigators to a questionable relationship between a Florida socialite and the general commanding the war in Afghanistan. Their main question: Was national security threatened? The extramarital affair was between Petraeus and his biographer Paula Broadwell, who U.S. officials say sent harassing, anonymous emails to a woman she apparently saw as a rival for Petraeus’ affections. That woman, Jill Kelley, in turn traded thousands of sometimes flirtatious messages with Gen. John Allen, possible evidence of another inappropriate relationship. The CIA’s acting director, Michael Morell, started answering lawmakers’ questions Tuesday on Capitol Hill, meeting with top Senate intelligence officials to explain the CIA’s take on events that led to Petraeus’ resignation last week after he acknowledged the affair. The lawmakers are espe-
NEW ORLEANS — It is tempting, oh so tempting, to unleash the snark as the script unfolds: Real Housewives of Tampa. Or is it Real Generals of Kabul? But recent events are too sad for snark. With so much at stake, schadenfreude has taken a vacation. Here is what we know: Retired Gen. David Petraeus abruptly quit his job as CIA chief when it be came clear that his long-running affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, would become public. The investigation that turned up incriminating emails between Broadwell and Petraeus was spurred by Broadwell’s allegedly harassing emails to another woman, Jill Kelley in Tampa, whom Broadwell apparently viewed as a threat to her liaison. A PowerPoint laser and a map would be helpful at this point. Next we learn that Kelley has had a lengthy, “potentially inappropriate” email exchange — between 20,000 and 30,000 pages (!!!) — with another fourstar general, John Allen, the Marine who replaced Petraeus as the top commander in Afghanistan last year. Meanwhile, the FBI investigator who was looking into Kelley’s complaints about harassing emails allegedly sent shirtless photos of himself to Kelley. If true, at least
we can be grateful it was only his torso. The agent, who had not been identified at this writing, is now under investigation by the Office of Professional Responsibility, the internal-affairs arm of the FBI. Oy. This is good soap opera, but bad everything else — and so sad for our country. What is wrong with these men? I know, I know. It takes two to tango. But when you’re head of the Central Intelligence Agency — or lead Americans in war — your tango matters more than her tango. That’s all the snark I can muster. Otherwise, this seems like so much tabloid lather. Is it really a national security matter that Petraeus apparently fell in love with someone not his wife? Maybe. If his paramour is a spy or a blabbermouth. Already, there are signals that Broadwell was talking out of school during an Oct. 26 speech in Denver, where she suggested that the attacks on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, were an attempt to free Libyan militants being held there by the CIA. That would be a news item, wouldn’t it? The CIA denies it, given that President Obama ended CIA authority to detain prisoners, while critics wonder whether Broadwell might have had access to classified

as well as the NATO supreme allied commander in Europe, at the request of Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, until Pentagon investigators are able to sift through the 20,000-plus pages of documents and emails that involve Allen and Kelley. The FBI decided to turn over the Allen information to the military once the bureau recognized it contained no evidence of a federal crime, according to a federal law enforcement official who was not authorized to discuss the matter on the record and demanded anonymity. Adultery, however, is a crime under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Allen, 58, worked to save his imperiled career. He told Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that he is innocent of misconduct, according to Col. David Lapan, Dempsey’s spokesman. At a news conference today in Perth, Australia, Panetta said, “No one should leap to any conclusions,” and said he is fully confident in Allen’s ability to continue to lead in Afghanistan. He added that putting a hold on Allen’s European Command nomination was the “prudent” thing to do.
other words. Feinstein called “unacceptable” the blocking of a report detailing a trip Petraeus made to Benghazi weeks before his resignation. The suspense will torture the insatiable, but matters so potentially grave — and so destructive in both personal and public ways — demand restraint on the part of the media. As more facts surface, others will be proven false. As rumors circulate, and tidbits of information are blown out of proportion, we should be wary of issuing judgments. “Warte!” was the word Franz Kafka had over his bed. “Wait.” I can’t guess why he had it over his bed. Perhaps this is where he worked. Studio apartment? Walker Percy, the writer, took this word as his own and hung it over his desk. I have copied them both and added a similar sign above my desk. We can’t wait for the news because it’s the journalist’s job to uncover it. But we can and should wait for judgment. Let the investigations proceed. Let the facts be verified. Let these people survive the humiliations they are certain to suffer. We are better than the mob — until we become one. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.
information. This mess reads like a spy thriller with all the requisite components — sex, clandestine communications, highranking generals and the CIA, beautiful women, including the fittest cadet (Broadwell) at West Point. What a bonanza for the campaign weary. But what a horror for our self-respect and our standing in the world. How does one wage war against terrorists and peddle the Great American Experiment when we are so obviously flawed and out of control? The end of this story may be less scintillating than it now appears. Perhaps it is nothing but a simple love story that got found out. But before we know what happened — and whether there is any legitimate concern about security breaches — we’ll hear plenty of spin from both sides of the political divide. It is some consolation that the chair of the Senate intelligence committee calling for an investigation is a Democrat, Dianne Feinstein. This isn’t a Republican political attack on the president, in

Eichers spent weekend visiting family in Ohio
BY LOVINA EICHER I am at the dentist’s office while daughter Susan gets her teeth cleaned. We came in our buggy pulled by our 18-year-old horse Diamond. It was a nice trip into town with the temperature warmed up into the 50s. I am hoping for a nice warm day to wash our curtains and our windows. If the weather stays this nice we might be able to get that accomplished yet. The week does seem filled up already. Thursday evening we had parent-teacher conferences at the school. The term is already a quarter over with. Friday there will be no school due to the teachers having some meetings. One of my daughters and myself will go help make subs for a “sub drive” on Friday. The proceeds from the subs sold go to help a family in our church with medical bills. It is nice to help one another with each other’s burdens. It lightens the load when everyone pitches in to help. We spent Friday evening to Sunday evening this past weekend visiting family in Holmes County, Ohio. We started out Friday around 4:30 p.m. We stopped to eat supper along the way and arrived out there around 10 p.m. We stayed both nights at Joe’s Uncle John and Susie’s house. We sure appreciated their hospitality. John and Susie’s children have all grown up and moved away from home. I imagine it was quite peaceful for them when we left with our children. Our children loved to play with their two dogs. Saturday morning, we joined John and Susie at a fund-raiser breakfast their church was having. Joe’s Uncle Solomon, Aunts Nancy and Rachel and cousin Arlene and family were all there as well. We then looked up Joe’s brother Benjamin, Miriam and family. We had a nice visit with them. From there we headed for the Pearl Valley Cheese Factory where we picked up some Swiss cheese and trail bologna. Every time Joe’s father would go to Ohio, he’d come back with Swiss cheese and trail bologna. It seems hard to not pick some up when we go to Ohio. We ate lunch at Miller’s Dutch Kitchen in Baltic and then headed back to John and Susie’s house. Aunt Nancy joined us for pizza for our supper. After we ate, Nancy took us over to show us where she lives. The next morning she made us a delicious breakfast consisting of biscuits, sausage gravy, fried potatoes, eggs, bacon, monkey bread, coffee and orange juice. Joe’s aunts Rachel and Nancy and Uncle Phillip joined us for breakfast.
After breakfast, we went to Joe’s Uncle Solomon’s house. We visited with him for awhile and he seems to be doing well to think how many broken bones he has from the 11-foot fall. Next, we stopped in to visit with Joe’s sister Esther and her husband David. From there we headed to my Aunt Lovina and Abe’s house for the noon meal. She had fixed a good meal for us. Her stepson and family joined us and so did cousin Amos and family, cousin Elizabeth and family and cousin Lovina and family. We used to all be in the same church growing up so we had a lot of catching up to do. It was so surprising to see how their children had grown. I think they thought the same about ours. They grow up way too fast. We headed for home at 3 p.m. and arrived back at 8 p.m, safe and sound. I will share a monkey bread recipe with you. MONKEY BREAD Bread dough to make your own biscuits or 4 tubes of refrigerated biscuits 3/4 cups sugar 1 tablespoon cinnamon Syrup: 1 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons water, 1 /2 cup softened butter, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla Mix cinnamon and sugar together, cut biscuits into quarters, and shake biscuits in mixture. Place 1/2 the pieces in a bundt pan, pour 1 /2 the syrup over this. Repeat with remaining biscuits and syrup. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve warm.

Jays to face top-seeded, unbeaten Panthers in regional finals
By JIM METCALFE email@example.com St. John’s has already beaten two higher-seeded teams — Leipsic and Fremont St. Joseph’s Central Catholic — in the first two rounds of the Region 22 playoffs. Friday night at Findlay’s Donnell Stadium, the Blue Jays will have to beat the topseeded team in Region 22, unbeaten McComb, to stay alive in the playoffs. The good thing for head coach Todd Schulte Knebel and his staff is that it will be the third straight week to prepare for a primarily spread offense. “It’s a typical spread offense with their formations — though they use some unbalanced line and other formations that you generally don’t see with spread teams — and it revolves around Jerry Brown. He is a multi-purpose player that they play at quarterback, running back and wide receiver,” Schulte noted. “He is 5-11 and 190 pounds and is just a gifted runner; he is shifty but also runs with good power. He’s just an athlete. The thing is, they run the ball a lot — they ran for about 400 yards last week; that’s a little bit different than what you’re used to seeing. The other main weapon they have is the quarterback when Brown is elsewhere, Cody Wilson, who is very efficient both running and throwing. They have good size up front. “We know we have to contain ‘Touchdown Jerry Brown’ but we cannot forget the other players, so we just have to be on our toes. It requires playing very sound, fundamental defense.” The defense that cedes 15.8 points and 265.5 yards (137.9 rushing) per game will look to linebackers Brent Schwinnen (68 solos, 41 assists) and Cody Looser (58 and 40), end Kody White (51 and 32, 7 for loss; 7 sacks, 8 QB harrassments), linebacker/punter Troy Warnecke (45 and 30; 38 punts, 33.1-yard average), back Ben Youngpeter (46 and 26), tackle Brock Bonifas (41 and 26, 9 for loss; 10 QB harrassments), safeties Evan Hays (43 and 20) and Metzger (42 and 18; 3 picks) and linebacker Jettinghoff (3 picks) to handle the Panther attack. “Defensively, they operate out of a base 4-3 cover-2 look but they do bring a linebacker up on the line at times and drop a safety into the box. Their two tackles have pretty good size but other than that, they go about 190 or less,” Schulte continued. “They just run to the ball very well; they don’t stay blocked. Defense is the unsung hero for them because Metzger the offense gets all the publicity. “They have shut out their last two opponents (including Friday night’s 42-0 whitewash of Tiffin Calvert, their sixth shutout of 2012), so they are playing very good defense right now. We want to run the football — that’s no secret — so it comes down to our guys up front establishing the line of scrimmage. They’ve been doing a good job with that.”
Green’s 3-pointer pushes Spurs past Lakers 84-82
By GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — The San Antonio Spurs’ final offensive play was smartly drawn and precisely executed, ending in a clutch jumper by Danny Green. The Lakers’ final play? Well, 7-foot Pau Gasol ended up shooting a 3-pointer. While coach Mike D’Antoni is on his way to Los Angeles with new schemes and strategies, Gregg Popovich and the Spurs are headed out of town with an outstanding start to the season. Green hit the goahead 3-pointer with 9.3 seconds left, Tony Parker scored 19 points and the Spurs beat Los Angeles 84-82 Tuesday night in the Lakers’ first loss since firing Mike Brown. Tim Duncan had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Spurs, who improved the Western Conference’s best record to 7-1 thanks to Green’s third 3-pointer of the night. The Spurs executed perfectly when facing a 1-point deficit, with Duncan helping Kawhi Leonard get the ball to Green. “(Popovich) drew up a play and said, ‘If you’re open, catch it and shoot it’,” Green explained. “When he draws plays for the young guys like myself, it’s very rare and very surprising. You don’t expect it. It’s only my third year here, so for him to draw up a play for me, there was a lot of pressure on me. But you take the shot with the confidence he gives you.” The Lakers are hoping to have that feeling when D’Antoni arrives, likely for practice Thursday. Interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff ran the team for the third straight game but the final play went poorly when they couldn’t get the ball to Kobe Bryant, who had 28 points and eight rebounds. After Gasol unsurprisingly missed just the 117th 3-point attempt of his 12-year NBA career, Tiago Splitter’s hustle prevented the Lakers from controlling the rebound before the buzzer sounded on Los Angeles’ first game since hiring D’Antoni late Sunday night. “It felt good when I released it (but) it wasn’t designed to go that way,” Gasol said. “We’re not discouraged by it in the situation we’re in. We’re looking forward to a new coach stepping in on Thursday and getting going. Hopefully, I’ll be closer to the basket next time.” Dwight Howard had 13 points and 15 rebounds for the Lakers, who dropped to 3-5 after committing 17 turnovers on a poor shooting night.

We tell them to go into the locker room and relax and they did that,” Schulte added. “We do use it as another halftime to make adjustments. When we came back out, I felt we were more mentally ready than they were. “Before that, we were down 21-7 early in the second quarter — we were up 21-0 the week before — and 21-13 at the half. Coach (defensive coordinator Steve) Recker and his staff made some great adjustments to their passing attack. Our offense had bogged down only once in the first half but once we got rolling, I felt we wore them down.” Kickoff Friday is 7:30 p.m.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Brad Keselowski became a social media darling after hopping on Twitter during a lengthy delay in the Daytona 500. Keselowski was the center of attention and NASCAR seemed trendy and hip — a description its executives surely adored. Turns out, tweeting from the car isn’t cool with NASCAR. Keselowski was fined $25,000 on Monday for tweeting during the red flag at Phoenix International Raceway. The punishment was confusing to fans who vented on Twitter, of course, wondering why Keselowski was punished for Sunday’s tweets when he was celebrated by NASCAR for doing the exact same thing in February’s season-opening race. Some alleged the Sprint Cup Series points leader was actually being disciplined for his profanity-laced outburst after Sunday’s crash- and fight-marred race. NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp on Tuesday dismissed the conspiracy theories and explained drivers had been told after the Daytona 500 that electronic devices — including cellphones — could not be carried inside the race cars going forward. “Brad’s tweeting at the Daytona 500 was really our first introduction to the magnitude of the social media phenomenon at the race track, especially how we saw it unfold that evening,” Tharp added. “We encourage our drivers to participate in social media. We feel we have the most liberal social media policy
upheaval of the past five days, the Lakers found another kind of drama in their first game since the club surprisingly bypassed 11-time NBA champion Phil Jackson to hire D’Antoni, who is expected to arrive in Los Angeles today. The Lakers’ crowd cheered for Bickerstaff but never broke out into the “We want Phil!” chants that occurred in their past two games. The Lakers haven’t announced when D’Antoni will formally take over the team and Bickerstaff could still be running the bench Friday when the Phoenix Suns visit Staples Center. And though Jackson has criticized the Lakers’ handling of his candidacy, the players who had been eager to play for the Zen Master seem equally eager to line up for D’Antoni. Bryant and Steve Nash enthusiastically endorsed D’Antoni’s hiring at the morning shootaround, with Bryant downplaying the notion that the Lakers’ defense would suffer during the offense-minded coach’s tenure. Both teams struggled with poor shooting until the final minutes, when Antawn Jamison’s 3-pointer from the corner put the Lakers ahead 78-77 with 2:10 to play. Duncan reclaimed the lead with a jumper but Gasol hit two free throws with 1:36 left and added an elbow jumper. Duncan trimmed the lead to one point before Metta World Peace missed an open jumper in the final minute, leading to the timeout in which Popovich drew it up for Green. The Lakers played without point guard Steve Blake, who has a minor abdominal strain. Blake had started the Lakers’ last five games in place of Nash, who will be out for another week or more with a small fracture in his leg. Darius Morris had one point on 0-for-5 shooting in his first NBA start in Blake’s place, while veteran backup Chris Duhon managed five points. The Lakers played without a point guard down the stretch, with World Peace defending Parker while Bryant largely orchestrated the Lakers’ offense.

KNICKS 99, MAGIC 89 ORLANDO, Fla. — Carmelo Anthony scored 25 points, J.R. Smith and Raymond Felton each added 21 and the New York Knicks held off the Orlando Magic 99-89. The only unbeaten team in the NBA, the Knicks are 5-0 for the first time since opening the 1993-94 season with seven wins. BOBCATS 92, WIZARDS 76 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Ramon Sessions scored 21 points and Charlotte beat winless Washington to get backto-back victories for the first time since last December. Rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist chipped in 15 points and eight rebounds before leaving in the fourth quarter to ice down a sore back. Kemba Walker battled inconsistent shooting but finished with 17 points for the Bobcats (3-3). RAPTORS 74, PACERS 72 INDIANAPOLIS — DeMar DeRozan scored 15 points and Jose Calderon had 13 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists to lead Toronto. DeRozan and Calderon each had 10 points in the first half for the Raptors, who had a franchise-low five points in the fourth quarter. Toronto led 69-58 heading into the fourth and hit only one field goal the rest of the way, also a franchise low record. George Hill scored 18 points and PaNETS 114, CAVALIERS 101 NEW YORK — Deron Williams had 26 points and 10 assists, Joe Johnson scored 25 points and Brooklyn beat road-weary Cleveland for its third straight victory. Brook Lopez added 23 points for the Nets, who opened a 20-point lead at home for the third straight game. Anderson Varejao scored a careerhigh 35 points and grabbed 18 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who were wrapping up a 6-game, coast-to-coast trip and played much of the game with the urgency of a team that wanted to be home. They haven’t played there since Nov. 2, their second game of the season, and dropped the final four games of the trip to finish 1-5. TRAIL BLAZERS 103, KINGS 86 SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Damian Lillard had 22 points and nine assists to help Portland stop a 4-game losing streak with a victory over short-handed Sacramento. James Johnson scored 16 for the Kings, who dropped their third straight and played their second consecutive game without leading scorer and rebounder DeMarcus Cousins, suspended following a verbal altercation last week with San Antonio Spurs television announcer Sean Elliott. Cousins lost an appeal Tuesday to reduce the suspension to one game. Sacramento also was missing starting point guard Isaiah Thomas and backup Aaron Brooks, who injured his left ankle in the first quarter and didn’t return.

Melvin, Johnson picked as managers of the year
By BEN WALKER The Associated Press NEW YORK — Young rosters, small budgets, limited expectations. No matter. Bob Melvin of the Oakland Athletics and Washington’s Davey Johnson won big right away and were chosen as managers of the year Tuesday after guiding their teams to huge turnaround seasons. Melvin beat out Baltimore’s Buck Showalter for the AL honor in a close vote by a Baseball Writers’ Association of America panel. In his first full season with Oakland, the rookie-laden A’s made a 20-game improvement, finished 94-68 and stunned just about everyone by winning the AL West with baseball’s lowest payroll. Still, the unassuming skipper was surprised to win. “Absolutely shocked. I mean, Buck had such a great year,” Melvin said on MLB Network. Johnson was an easy choice for the NL prize after the Nationals — who had never enjoyed a winning season — posted the best record in the majors and made their first playoff appearance. Johnson, who turns 70 in January, was honored for the second time. He was tabbed as the AL’s top manager in 1997, hours after he resigned from the Orioles in a feud with owner Peter Angelos. This time, Johnson will get a while to enjoy the accolade. The Nationals announced this month that he will guide them in 2013, when he will be the oldest manager in the majors. He’s set to leave the Washington dugout and become a team consultant in 2014. “World Series or bust,” Johnson said on MLB Network. “It’s going to be my last year, anyway.” Melvin also became a 2-time winner, having been chosen in 2007 with Arizona. He and Johnson joined Jim Leyland, Bobby Cox, Tony La Russa and Lou Piniella as the only managers to win the award in both leagues. La Russa was the only other Oakland manager to earn the honor, in 1988 and 1992. Melvin received 16 firstplace votes. Showalter got the other 12 after leading the wild-card Orioles to their first winning season since 1997; Chicago White Sox first-year manager Robin Ventura finished third. With five rookies in their starting rotation, the A’s were one of baseball’s biggest surprises this year — especially after trades, injuries and the suspension of veteran pitcher Bartolo Colon wreaked havoc with the roster. Oakland never panicked under Melvin’s cool demeanor, rallying from 13 games back on June 30 and overtaking Texas in the final week to win the division. The Athletics went 72-38 after June 1, the best record in the majors. They became the first team in big-league history to come back from a deficit of at least five games with fewer than 10 remaining to with the Nationals when Jim Riggleman suddenly resigned midway through the season. Johnson took over and agreed to be part of a search committee to select a manager for 2012, allowing that he could be a candidate for the post, too. The Nationals finished 80-81, barely missing out on their first winning season and Johnson was brought back for another try. Washington was without major-league baseball for more than three decades. The Senators moved to Texas after the 1971 season, then the Montreal Expos moved to D.C. to start in 2005. Under Johnson, the Nationals put aside their losing past and set up a winning future. The same is true of the A’s. Fired by the Diamondbacks early in 2009, Melvin was hired as Oakland’s interim manager on June 9, 2011. Three months later, he signed a 3-year contract that runs through the 2014 season. Marlins trade 3 stars to Blue Jays
win a division or pennant. The A’s then lost in five games in the first round of the playoffs to AL champion Detroit. “We just tried to keep it day to day,” Melvin added. “It’s a credit to the guys each and every day going out there and just worrying about that particular day.” Johnson received 23 of the 32 first-place votes, while Dusty Baker of NL Central winner Cincinnati got five firsts and came in second. Bruce Bochy of the World Series champion San Francisco Giants got four firsts and was third. Washington won its second major individual award, both in the past two days. Bryce Harper was voted NL Rookie of the Year on Monday. Before the season, a confident Johnson declared that if the Nationals didn’t win the NL East, he’d probably be fired. Washington went 98-64, taking over the division lead in late May and staying in first place the rest of the way. Boosted by Harper, Cy Young Award candidate Gio Gonzalez and their fresh “Natitude,” they brought postseason baseball to Washington for the first time since 1933. “This award’s really nice but I look at the award as an organizational award,” Johnson added. “Young players this year really stepped in when key players got hurt. ... We had a lot of young catchers come up and everybody really produced and it was just a remarkable year. Actually, I didn’t think they overachieved; they just played up to their ability.” The playoffs didn’t go quite so well. Minus Stephen Strasburg — team execs decided the ace had pitched enough in his first “full” season following elbow surgery — Washington blew a 6-0 lead and lost the deciding Game 5 of the division series to St. Louis. Voting for the BBWAA awards was done before the playoffs. Johnson oversaw a diverse roster, one made up of young and old, Washington veterans and newcomers. A 4-time All-Star, 3-time Gold Glove winner, 2-time World Series champion and the last bigleaguer to get a hit off Sandy Koufax, Johnson spoke with a soft, raspy tone but always held his team’s attention. He would occasionally raise his voice — he liked to holler “whack-o!” when the Nationals homered. Johnson managed the New York Mets to the 1986 championship and later guided Cincinnati and the Orioles. He returned to managing in 1999 with the Los Angeles Dodgers for two years. In June 2011, Johnson was working as a senior adviser
Salary-paring actually began in July, when the Marlins parted with former NL batting champion Hanley Ramirez, second baseman Omar Infante and right-hander Anibal Sanchez, among others. Bell, the team’s high-profile bust, was traded to Arizona last month. Under owner Jeffrey Loria, long the target of fan acrimony, the Marlins have usually been among baseball’s thriftiest teams. Management pledged that would change with the new ballpark,but team officials were disappointed with attendance in 2012 and revenue fell far short of their projections. Even so, the blockbuster deal came as a shock. The players involved must undergo physicals before the trade becomes final. The deal gave an immediate boost to the Blue Jays, who have not reached the playoffs since winning their second consecutive World Series in 1993. Toronto went 73-89 this season and finished fourth in the AL East for the fourth straight year, again falling short in a division that includes big spenders. The Marlins changed their name a year ago but failed to change their losing ways; instead of contending for a playoff berth, they finished 69-93, their worst record since 1999. The Marlins drew more than 2.2 million fans but had projected attendance of nearly 3 million. Team officials blamed the difference in part on manager Ozzie Guillen’s laudatory comments early in the year about former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, which antagonized a large segment of an alreadysmall fan base. Guillen was fired after only one season with the team and replaced this month by the Marlins’ former backup catcher, Mike Redmond. The roster shake-up during the season reduced the payroll to $90.3 million from $112 million on opening day and could be dramatically lower next season.

MIAMI — Reacting to the Miami Marlins’ latest payroll purge on Twitter, slugger Giancarlo Stanton gave it three exclamation marks. He wasn’t exaggerating. The Marlins’ spending spree a year ago didn’t work, so they went the salary-dumping route again Tuesday, shedding some of their biggest stars and multimillion-dollar salaries in one blockbuster deal. The Marlins swapped highpriced talent for top prospects, trading All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, left-hander Mark Buehrle and ace right-hander Josh Johnson to the Toronto Blue Jays, a person familiar with the agreement announced. The person confirmed the trade to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams weren’t officially commenting, adding the trade sent several of the Blue Jays’ best young players to Miami. The stunning agreement came less than a year after the Marlins added Reyes, Buehrle and closer Heath Bell in an uncharacteristic $191 million spending binge as they rebranded and moved into a new ballpark. The acquisitions raised high hopes but the Marlins instead finished last in the NL East.

European markets lag Knippen rated No. 1 in customer service as union strikes hit
BY NANCY SPENCER
By TOBY STERLING The Associated Press
AMSTERDAM — World stock markets were mixed today, with European indexes down on worsening economic prospects and labor union strikes, while U.S. shares followed Asia’s lead higher. On Wall Street, stocks opened higher as Cisco’s earnings came in ahead of expectations, September retail sales data were revised higher, and renewed efforts got under way in Washington to resolve the impending “fiscal cliff.” The Dow Jones industrial average rose 0.2 percent to 12,778 and the S&P 500 added 0.2 percent to 1,377.32. The “fiscal cliff” is a set of U.S. government spending cuts and tax increases that will take effect automatically at the beginning of next year unless U.S. leaders reach a compromise before then. U.S. lawmakers gathered for talks on Tuesday, giving traders hope that at least a temporary compromise might By DON SCHANCHE Jr. The Associated Press
Waffle House CEO: Sex charges false, ‘blackmail’
Rogers said the woman is not telling the truth. “Over an almost eight-year period when I was separated, single and re-married, I had a series of infrequent consensual sexual encounters with my housekeeper,” Rogers said. He said the woman worked as a housekeeper for 15 hours a week from 2003 until she was let go in 2008. He said she later was rehired as his house manager and quit her job in June. “Shortly thereafter, on July 16, 2012, I received a letter from her attorney containing false allegations and strong threats,” Rogers said. “According to her attorneys, she now wants millions of dollars from me.” The woman’s attorney, David Cohen, did not immediately call back after he was contacted for a comment. In the police report, the woman identified herself as a single mother. She said she
somehow be reached before a deadline in seven weeks. President Barack Obama was to meet later today with about a dozen business executives who want to see an agreement before the end of the year. “People feel there’s been a significant pullback over fiscal cliff worries,” said Andrew Sullivan, an independent market analyst in Hong Kong. “The reality is we are likely to see a solution.” In Europe, unions coordinated work stoppages across many countries to protest the austerity measures that governments have been imposing to reduce public debt. Flights were delayed around the continent due to transportation strikes. Meanwhile, official figures showed industrial output in the 17-country eurozone dropped 2.5 percent on the month in September, worse than analysts had expected. By mid-afternoon in Europe, Britain’s FTSE 100 was down 0.5 percent to 5,756.66. Germany’s DAX was 0.3 percent lower
at 7,146.73 and France’s CAC-40 shed 0.3 percent to 3,421.33. “September’s plunge in eurozone industrial production provides firm evidence that the economic outlook in the region is continuing to deteriorate,” said Ben May, an analyst at London-based Capital Economics. “We expect the eurozone to fall deeper into recession in the latter part of this year and worse is to come in 2013.” In Asia, traders were hopeful that a transition of power in China will be followed by greater initiatives to shore up its economy. Today, President Hu Jintao stepped aside to make way for Vice President Xi Jinping as party leader. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng jumped 1.2 percent to 21,441.99. Mainland Chinese shares also gained, with the Shanghai Composite Index rising 0.4 percent to 2,055.42. The Shenzhen Composite Index gained 0.3 percent to 818.60. Japan’s Nikkei 225 rose marginally to close at 8,664.73
DELPHOS — Knippen Chrysler, Dodge Jeep of Delphos has been awarded the coveted ranking of No. 1 of 2,081 Chrysler dealerships nationwide in Customer Service Satisfaction. According to Ron Knippen, the award is just reinforcement of the dealership’s motto. “We started out in 1981 as a heavy-duty truck repair and car repair garage so customer service was our main objective because that’s all we did,” Knippen said. “When we added the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep franchise in 1992, we just carried that through as well as sales.” With 90 percent of their business coming from repeat customers and word of mouth, Knippen said great customer service is a must. “If you want people to say good things about you and come back for repeat service, you have to treat them right,” Knippen said. One thing that may set Knippens apart from the rest is the fact that those seeking
Ron and Sheree Knippen of Knippen Chrysler, Dodge Jeep of Delphos are proud to have their business ranked No. 1 of 2,081 Chrysler dealerships nationwide in customer service. assistance get a live person on the line when calling. “A lot of our customers have expressed gratitude they don’t have to go through a bunch of phone prompts to get a live person,” Knippen said. “When you call us, you get one of us.” Knippens has expanded four times since 1981 and employs 21 people, many of whom have been with the business since the early 80s. In addition to offering new and used vehicles, Knippen also has an experienced sales staff, a full line of Mopar parts and 24-hour wrecking service.
Wording of house title is important
DEAR BRUCE: My father and I own a house together that neither of us lives in; it’s just a rental. Upon his death, does the house become mine, or does half of it go to his estate? I’m worried that if he were to require long-term care, this house would be considered part of his assets. -- P.R., via email DEAR P.R.: With regard to your first question, it depends on how the house is titled. If the house is titled “in joint tenancy with the right of survivorship,” then when one of you dies, the other guy owns the house in its entirety. If the house is not titled that way, his half will go into his estate. Unless your dad has reasons not to, I would suggest changing the title so it is worded that way if it isn’t already. If your father needs long-term care and collects Medicaid, the house is part of his assets and, upon his demise, his piece of the action could be attached by the state that provides the Medicaid help. If you were to put the house in your name, you would have to satisfy the “lookback” period, which is five years. That means that if your father collects any aid before that look-back time has expired, the house would still be considered his asset. DEAR BRUCE: Due to identity theft issues several years ago, my husband and I had to file for Chapter 13. Things were just taking so long to get confirmed and cleared up, and we were at our wits’ end. Our attorney advised us at the time that this would be the best way to take care of the problem. We will be moving to another city due to my husband’s job. Because we are not familiar with where we are moving, we thought about renting for a couple of years and renting out our current home. My husband thinks we should sell our home and use the equity to make a down payment on another home. I think he forgets that we filed Chapter 13 and that we’re going to have a hard time getting a mortgage. Will we be able to qualify for a new
ATLANTA — The CEO of Waffle House said Tuesday that a former employee who claims he tried to force her to have sex actually was a participant in consensual sex and has been trying to blackmail him. “I am a victim of my own stupidity, but I am not going to be a victim of a crime — extortion,” Joe W. Rogers Jr. said in a written statement. The woman told Atlanta police last month that Rogers demanded she perform sexual acts in exchange for keeping her job for nearly 10 years, from 2003 through June of this year. The police report also quotes the woman as saying that Rogers tried to force her to have sex with him despite her repeated protests. The Associated Press does not generally identify alleged victims of sexual assault.

stayed in the job and submitted because she couldn’t find other employment with comparable pay. She said she gave Rogers a letter of resignation in June after her son secured a full college scholarship. Rogers said he shared the letter from the woman’s attorney with his wife and they hired lawyers to look into the situation. Rogers and the woman sued each other, but documents in those cases were sealed. Rogers’ attorney, Robert Ingram, said a Cobb County judge lifted a gag order in Rogers’ lawsuit Tuesday “so Joe could get his version of the story out.” “We’re doing that and we’re also pursuing remedies for Mr. Rogers in court based upon what appear to be violations of the court’s orders.” Ingram said the woman made intimate videotapes involving Rogers, and he said the court demanded that she turn over those tapes. “They were tapes that (she) recorded, which is a crime in the state of Georgia to record somebody when that person had an expectation of privacy and doesn’t consent to the recording,” Ingram said. A hearing on the Cobb County lawsuit is scheduled today.
mortgage when our Chapter 13 is paid off, since we have paid everything on time and have acquired no new debt in the last three years? -- Reader, via email DEAR READER: You are going to have a tough time getting a mortgage even if the Chapter 13 has been paid off, although it does indicate that you have acted honorably. The problem is mortgages in general. With all the past problems in the mortgage industry, mortgages are difficult to get right now, especially for someone who has filed Chapter 13. Lots of rental properties are on the market now. If you try to rent from a big company, however, the Chapter 13 may count against you because the landlord almost surely will run a credit check. You might put your current home on the market, but the troublesome part there is that, as you know, real estate is stagnant in most parts of the country. You should also face the unpleasant reality that you’ll have a much better chance of selling your home if you stay there and let your husband go off to the new city rather than closing up shop and leaving an empty home. All of these variables have to be considered. Congratulations on acting honorably and paying off all of your debts.

Don’t throw away outgrown clothes
Dear Sara: My daughter has grown like a weed over the last year -- from a tiny size 8 to a size 14/16 in one year. I now have a ton of used clothing that doesn’t fit her. We don’t know anyone here because we’re so new to the area. There really isn’t a decent thrift store here that sells children’s clothing. Some of these items are very nice and have value. I tried a multi-day garage sale, including advertising on Craigslist and online forums (with pictures), and I didn’t have a single customer! The only children’s consignment store is 100 miles away. By the time I pay for gas, selling there would cost me money. I want this stuff gone. What can I do? -- C.L., Mississippi Dear C.L.: I would ask friends and family if they want any of it, and maybe they can cover shipping if they live far away. Consider donating to a charity, church or shelter, too. You could give them away on Freecycle or place box-lots on eBay. Or try thredup.com: You can put a bag/box on your doorstep, then they pick it up and decide what they can sell. Once an item sells, you can claim your money or use it as a credit on like-new kids’ clothing items from the site. A lot of schools do fundraisers and have mom-to-mom type sales where parents bring in their gently used items to resell. See if your daughter’s school is planning anything like this. Dear Sara: I have to take pasta for my son’s crosscountry running dinner -- enough to feed 10 to 12 teenage boys. I’m estimating three pounds of dry pasta, plus the other ingredients. I am trying to decide if I should make it myself or just buy pre-made Stouffer’s lasagna. When I price it out, it looks like it would cost about the same either way. Which would you do? I was thinking I could make a Mexican-style pasta dish, but I have never made that before and would be winging it. Do you have any ideas? They have these dinners every week and usually it’s just lasagna and macaroni and cheese (mostly Stouffer’s), so I was trying to think of something different. Last time I had to bring drinks, I brought orange juice instead of the lemonade or Gatorade they normally get, and my son said it was a big hit. -Jennifer, Ohio Dear Jennifer: While frozen meals would be quick and easy, I would make it myself if I had the time. It will taste better and you can control the ingredients, meaning it can be made healthier, you can stretch the ingredients and it will be different, which it seems the kids appreciate. Here’s a reader-submitted recipe for a taco-style casserole that you can double or triple: Taco Twist Casserole 2 pounds ground beef 1/2 green pepper, chopped 2 packages taco seasoning 1 28-ounce can tomato sauce 3/4 cups salsa 16 ounces corkscrew
macaroni, cooked and drained 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided 1 cup sour cream Cook beef and pepper until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add taco seasoning, tomato sauce and salsa and simmer on low for 5 minutes. In the large pot you cooked the pasta in, mix pasta and sauce together, add 1 cup of cheese and all of the sour cream. Spray a 13-by-9-by-2-inch or larger pan and pour mixture in. Top with remaining cheese and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Optional: Add one 8-ounce can of tomato sauce to the top of the casserole before you put the cheese on if it looks a bit dry. Serve with extra sour cream if desired. -- Darlene B., New York

The Herald – 11
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2012 In the year ahead, you could be unusually lucky in endeavors that involve some elements of chance. It isn’t likely that you will take foolish risks -- you will instead be a bold entrepreneur. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- The probability of making a breakthrough on a recent project is exceptionally good. However, it’s smart to keep this matter confidential. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you find yourself in a position where you can help guide a friend through an awkward maze, don’t wait to be asked, especially if you see your pal making avoidable mistakes. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An opportunity might arise that would enable you to be of assistance to someone you could easily help. If you don’t do so, sadly, chances are it’ll be for some selfish reason. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your powers of observation are especially keen, and you will easily spot errors in others’ methods. Find an opening to correct them without appearing to be a know-it-all. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you’ve got the experience, it might be smart for you to assume the principal role in a joint endeavor rather than leave things up to your partner. Why take a chance on what the other party might not know? ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You could get a lot more accomplished if you are willing to cooperate with your colleagues. You’ll quickly discover that they’ll pull for you when you pull for them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Before doing any work for another, get a firm commitment on what your prospective employer is willing to pay. Chances are, the bigger the reward, the better job you’ll do. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -You’ll instinctively treat everyone as an equal and, since most people hold you in high esteem, they’ll take it as a huge compliment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -This is a good day to take on some tasks that you know you should have attended to by now but have been neglecting. Once they’re done, it’ll be a huge load off your back. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Try to set aside some time to spend with someone you like but haven’t seen much of lately. It’ll prove to be a happy event, but more importantly, you could learn something quite valuable. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Some kind and generous behavior you display to others could turn out to be of tremendous personal benefit in the long run. It pays to be a giver. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- The major reason why your words carry more weight than usual is that they will not only come straight from the heart but will have a strong ring of sincerity as well.
