50¢ daily www.delphosherald.com BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor CELINA — Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey still has two murder investigations going on. One dates back exactly one year to the day the bodies of Robert and Colleen Grube were discovered at their home near Fort Recovery. The other case began less than a month ago with the shooting of Melinda Shinn at her home in Rockford. On Thursday, Grey called together members of the media to provide an update on both investigations. He began with the Shinn murder case which centers on 40-year-old Daniel Charles Martin. Shinn and Martin lived together in a mobile home in Rockford and argued during the evening of Nov. 7. The next morning, Rockford Police were called to the trailer where Shinn’s body was discovered. Martin was nowhere to be found, although his vehicle was later located in Fort Wayne. The effort put into trying to find Martin is still continuing. “Our detectives are working very closely with other law enforcement agencies, both in Ohio and outside Ohio, attempting to locate him,” stated Grey. “Right after the warrant was issued, we requested the assistance

considered to a dangerous fugitive. “If someone sees him out on the street or knows where he is at, they should contact their local law enforcement agency,” Grey continued. “We do believe that he is still armed, so it is important that the public help us with information, but the public allows law enforcement to make the apprehension. We don’t want anyone else to get hurt including Mr. Martin. Our goal is to make an arrest, bring him in and work through the court process.” Grey went on to explain that although the Rockford Police Department initially investigated the murder, his office was requested to take over the investigation. “I want the people of Rockford to be aware that we didn’t come in and take it. The Rockford Police Department is working very closely with us on that case. They just have a small agency and don’t have quite as many resources as we do to be able to work a case of this magnitude,” he shared. As for the Grube case, Grey said that he is encouraged with recent developments in the investigation. He related, “Before I was saying my confidence level was high, today I’m saying it is very high. So while it’s been 12 months, I want to stress

Commissioners from Allen, Auglaize and Shelby counties toured several areas of the Auglaize River containing logjams on Thursday. Above is a portion of the river near Kendrick Woods. (Delphos Herald/Stephanie Groves) See related photos on page 12. and snagging section of the bid, the logjams have been grouped into four classes according to the type or size, “A” being the smallest to “D” being the largest. Labor to remove and dispose of the debris varies by class. There are 1,280 class “A” logjams at $260,770, 364 class “B” at $139,810, 95 class “C” at $97,300 and 21 class “D” 50,900 totaling $548,780. The obstruction affects 85,863 acres in Allen County, 20,249 acres in Van Wert County, 406 acres in Shelby County and 14,995 acres in Putnam County. A temporary 75-foot working easement will be established along the outer tree line during the work. A permanent 25-foot easement will exist for future maintenance along the outer tree line. Landowners will be permitted to farm and crop the easement area. Allen County Soil & Water Conservation District employee Scott Langenkamp provided some background on factors attributing to the bottlenecks affecting the natural flow of the river. “Debris has gathered around the river’s curves over the past five years, causing flooding, erosion and affecting wildlife,” Langenkamp explained. “The ice storm in 2005, the flood in 2009 and the ongoing loss of Ash trees due to Emerald Ash Borer are
contributing factors highly impacting the jams.

Internet service goes P Delphos woman out across Syria arrested on
BY ZEINA KARAM and BASSEM MROUE The Associated Press BEIRUT — Internet service went down Thursday across Syria and international flights were canceled at the Damascus airport when a road near the facility was closed by heavy fighting in the country’s civil war. Activists said President Bashar Assad’s regime pulled the plug on the Internet, perhaps in preparation for a major offensive. Cellphone service also went out in Damascus and parts of central Syria, they said. The government blamed rebel fighters for the outages. With pressure building against the regime on several fronts and government forces on their heels in the battle for the northern commercial hub of Aleppo, rebels have recently begun pushing back into Damascus after largely being driven out of the capital following a July offensive. One Damascus resident reported seeing rebel forces near a suburb of the city previously deemed to be safe from fighting. The Internet outage, confirmed by two U.S.-based companies that monitor online connectivity, is unprecedented in Syria’s 20-month-old uprising against Assad, which activists say has killed more than 40,000 people. Regime forces suffered a string of tactical defeats in recent weeks, losing air bases and other strategic facilities. The government may be trying to blunt additional rebel offensives by hampering communications. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland condemned what she called the regime’s “assault” on Syrians’ ability to communicate with each other and express themselves. She said the move spoke to a desperate attempt by Assad to cling to power. Syrian authorities often cut phone and Internet service in select areas to disrupt rebel communications when regime forces are conducting major operations. The government sent mixed signals about the Internet outage but denied it was nationwide. The pro-regime TV station Al-Ikhbariya quoted Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi as saying that “terrorists” have targeted Internet cables, interrupting service in several cities. Separately, state-run TV said the outage was due to a technical failure that affected some provinces, adding that technicians were trying to fix it. Activists in Syria, reached by satellite telephones unaffected by the outage, confirmed the communications problems. A young Syrian businessman who lives in an upscale neighborhood of Damascus, which some refer to as part of “the green zone” because it has remained relatively safe, sent a text message to an Associated Press reporter Thursday that said the Internet had been cut in his area and that mobile phone service was cutting out. He said he was driving Wednesday through the Damascus suburb of Aqraba, near the airport, and saw dozens of rebel fighters for the first time in the area, riding in pickup trucks and motorcycles, and wielding AK-47s. Their presence so close to the “green zone” may have led to the Internet being cut, said the resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he feared government reprisal. He said the military was positioned a few hundred meters away from the rebel fighters and had built large speed bumps to enclose the area. The opposition said the Internet blackout was an ominous sign that the regime was preparing a major offensive. “I fear that cutting the Internet may be a prelude to a massacre in Damascus,” said Adib Shishakly, a Syrian opposition figure from Cairo, Egypt. “The regime feels it is being choked off by rebels who are closing in on the capital from its suburbs. It’s a desperate move; they are trying to sever communications between activists.” Renesys, a U.S.-based network security firm that studies Internet disruption, said in a statement that Syria effectively disappeared from the Internet at 12:26 p.m. local time. “In the global routing table, all 84 of Syria’s IP address blocks have become unreachable, effectively removing the country from the Internet,” Renesys said. It added that the main autonomous system responsible for Internet in the country is the Syrian Telecommunications Establishment, and that “all of their customer networks are currently unreachable.” Akamai Technologies Inc., another U.S.-based company that distributes content on the Internet, also confirmed the complete outage.

Study: Like a tree, growth rings show lobster age
BY CLARKE CANFIELD The Associated Press PORTLAND, Maine — For the first time, scientists have figured out how to determine the age of a lobster — by counting its rings, like a tree. Nobody knows how old lobsters can live to be; some people estimate they live to more than 100. But knowing — rather than simply guessing — their age and that of other shellfish could help scientists better understand the population and assist regulators of the lucrative industry, said Raouf Kilada, a research associate at the University of New Brunswick who was the lead author of a scientific paper documenting the process. Before now, scientists deduced a lobster’s age judging by size and other variables. But it’s now known that lobsters and other crustaceans, such as crabs and shrimp, grow one ring per year in hidden-away internal spots, Kilada said. “Having the age information for any commercial species will definitely improve the stock assessment and ensure sustainability,” he said after presenting his findings Thursday at a scientific conference in Portland. Scientists already could tell a fish’s age by counting the growth rings found in a bony part of its inner ear, a shark’s age from the rings in its vertebrae and a scallop or clam’s age from the rings of its shell. But crustaceans posed a problem because of the apparent absence of any permanent growth structures. It was thought that when lobsters and other crustaceans molt, they shed all calcified body parts that might record annual growth

bands. For their research, Kilada and five other Canadian researchers took a closer look at lobsters, snow crabs, northern shrimp and sculptured shrimp. They found that growth rings, in fact, could be found in the eyestalk — a stalk connected to the body with an eyeball on the end — of lobsters, crabs and shrimp. In lobsters and crabs, the rings were also found in the so-called “gastric mills,” parts of the stomach with three teeth-like structures used to grind up food. To find the growth bands, the scientists dissected the eyestalks and the gastric mills, cut out sections and viewed them under microscopes. Lobsters don’t lose reproductive capabilities or organ functions or exhibit signs of aging as they get older, but nobody knows for sure how old they can live to be. “We’ve thought lobsters could live to 100 years old, and this new aging technique will be a way to document that,” said Bob Bayer, executive director of the University of Maine’s Lobster Institute. The paper was published in this month’s Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, a well-regarded peerreviewed scientific journal based in Ottawa, Ontario, that has been published since 1901. Kilada’s was one of more than 50 scientific presentations at the conference, attended by more than 100 lobster scientists from the U.S., Canada and Europe. Bayer agreed that this is the first time scientists have a direct method to place an age on crustaceans.
NEW YORK (AP) — For humanitarian and economic reasons, the federal Bureau of Prisons should grant more early releases to incapacitated and terminally ill prisoners, two advocacy groups say in a report depicting current policies as sometimes “cruel as well as senseless.” The report, issued today by Human Rights Watch and Families Against Mandatory Minimums, says the Bureau of Prisons oversees more than 218,000 inmates, yet has recommended an average of only two dozen compassionate releases a year since 1992. Human Rights Watch senior adviser Jamie Fellner, a co-author of the report, said Congress in 1984 granted federal courts the authority to reduce sentences under “extraordinary and compelling” circumstances. However, the report says federal prisoners can’t seek such a sentence reduction from the courts on their own; only the BOP has the authority to file a motion requesting judicial consideration of early release. “Justice sometimes requires compassion, even for people who have broken the law,” Fellner said. “But prison officials prevent judges from deciding when compassion requires a sentence reduction. This is unfair to the prisoners and costly to the country.” Responding by email, the BOP said it reviews each earlyrelease request on a case-bycase basis and also takes into consideration information provided by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “It is the bureau’s responsibility to consider public safety”
Federal prisons urged to grant more early releases Murders 1) (Continued from page
when determining whether to pursue these motions, the BOP statement said. Though the new report is generally critical of BOP policies, it cites some “promising signs” — including formation of a BOP working group to look at the compassionate release program. It said the BOP’s new director, Charles Samuels, has expressed interest in reforming the program and noted that the number of release cases forwarded to the courts had risen slightly under his leadership, to 37 between Jan. 1 and Nov. 15 of this year. The report urges Congress to change the existing law, which gives prisoners no right to challenge BOP decisions in court. It also says the BOP should bring compassionate release motions to court whenever a prisoner presents compelling arguments, regardless of whether prison officials believe early release is warranted. The BOP’s budget is more than $6 billion, and care of ailing and aging prisoners is a major factor in rising expenses. The report says one way to curb these costs would be increased use of compassionate release for prisoners posing minimal risk to public safety. The report says the BOP does not keep an overall count of prisoners who seek compassionate release, but provided a breakdown for the Federal Medical Center in Butner, N.C., which houses nearly 1,000 inmates with medical problems. During 2011, the report says, the warden made decisions on 147 requests for compassionate release and approved 12 of them.

am not comfortable calling a suspect quite yet at this point, but we are very curious about them. That is our focus at this point. We are really focusing and putting a lot of effort into a few people that might possibly be involved. We have a good indication that we are on the right track. So hopefully we’ll have some resolution soon.” According to Grey, detectives have traveled throughout southern and southwestern Ohio as well as Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee and have been in contact with law enforcement in several other states. A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the deaths of Robert and Colleen Grube. Grey admitted that tips on the murders have slowed down over the past 12 months, but new evidence is continuing to come in. More than 250 people have been interviewed in connection with the case, some of those multiple times. Grey also thanked the Sheriff’s offices in Darke County, Ohio along with Randolph County and Jay County in Indiana. Now, with two high-profile murder cases, Mercer County law enforcement is concentrating on getting these two cases wrapped up. “Right now the priority of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office is to find Daniel Charles Martin and to find who is responsible for Robert and Colleen’s murders, Grey summarized. “My confidence level remains very high that we are going to be successful in finding Martin and in solving that case.”

Ohio House OKs plan to give schools letter grades
By JULIE CARR SMYTH The Associated Press COLUMBUS — Ohio schools would get old-fashioned A through F grades under a new performance ranking system that cleared the state House on Thursday. Representatives voted 58-27 to pass the voluminous ratings overhaul, sending it to the Senate. That chamber’s leader also has made the proposal a priority before the two-year session ends next month. The bill would bestow A, B, C, D and F grades on school districts, school buildings, community schools, STEM schools and collegepreparatory boarding schools based on 13 performance measures. The grades would be phased in over four school years to replace the current five-tier system of excellent, effective, continuous improvement, academic watch, and academic emergency. The process would begin with a “dashboard” of letter grades available to the public but no overall grade for districts this coming year. Community schools serving mostly academically challenged students would see a different scale developed. “It’s a good bill, it’s a comprehensive bill, it’s a bill that’s been a long time coming,” House Education Chairman Gerald Stebelton told fellow lawmakers. Stebelton, a Republican, equated the lengthy process “It’s a good bill, of hammering out the bill it’s a compreto sausage-making, saying hensive bill, it’s lawmakers faced a Dec. 31 a bill that’s been deadline for establishing the new ranking system in order a long time com- to comply with conditions of ing.

Grade rankings for schools and districts eventually will be determined on a host of criteria, including student performance on a national standardized college admission test selected by the state Board of Education; graduation rates; the percentage of students deemed “college-ready”; and participation and

The legislation also orders the state school board to set a method for measuring improvements in literacy rates between kindergarten and 3rd grade, including possible use of measures for the new 3rd Grade Reading Guarantee. State Rep. Kristina Roegner, a proponent of the bill, said the current system is misleading or “confusing at best.” “Everyone who went to school in the United States understands the A-through-F system,” she said. She also said standards laid out in the bill raises the bar in terms of academic performance.

“I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.” — James Baldwin (1924-1987)
Pressuring GOP, Obama takes his fiscal plan to Pa.
By JIM KUHNHENN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is taking his case for avoiding a potentially unsettling “fiscal cliff” to the Philadelphia suburbs, employing campaign-style tactics in hopes of mobilizing public support. The trip comes amid signs of impatience in the negotiations between Republican leaders and the White House. Obama was scheduled to go to Hatfield, Pa., to pressure Republicans to allow tax increases on the wealthy while extending current Bush-era tax rates for households earning $250,000 or less. White House officials believe today’s trip will build momentum for the president’s case, even as Republicans describe it as an irritant and an obstacle to fruitful talks. Obama was to tour and speak at the Rodon Group manufacturing facility, showcasing the company as an example of a business that depends on middle-class consumers during the holiday season. The company manufactures parts for K’NEX Brands, a construction toy company whose products include Tinkertoy, K’NEX Building Sets and Angry Birds Building Sets. His trip comes a day after By MARTIN CRUTSINGER The Associated Press Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner met privately with congressional leaders and presented a proposal calling for $1.6 trillion in higher taxes over 10 years and immediate spending to help the unemployed and struggling homeowners. The proposal, which Democratic officials described as a negotiation’s opening bid, includes plans for legislation in 2013 aimed at saving $400 billion over 10 years from Medicare and other benefit programs. Administration officials said the offer constituted much of what Obama has suggested in budget proposals. One new feature in the Geithner plan is a call for increasing the nation’s debt limit without the need for congressional approval. Under last year’s debt ceiling deal, Obama simply had to notify Congress that he was raising the debt ceiling, a move that could be blocked only if both houses of Congress approved resolutions of disapproval that Obama could veto. The administration is seeking a similar arrangement going forward. Following a closed-door meeting with Geithner, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, declared “no substantive progress has been made between the White House and the House” in the two weeks

Man arrested after incident with Romney motorcade
By KEN THOMAS The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Secret Service said Thursday a man interfered with a motorcade carrying Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney as his vehicle arrived at a secure checkpoint near the White House. The man was later arrested after he became combative during an interview with a police officer. Secret Service spokesman Max Milien said the man, who was not identified, was standing near a security entrance to the White House and got in the motorcade’s way. The vehicle stopped briefly at the security gate and then entered the White House complex. Milien says the man was later interviewed by a uniform division officer and became combative. He was charged with assault on a police officer and unlawful entry. Romney came to the White House for lunch with Obama, their first meeting since the election. A CNN video of the incident shows a man briefly heckling Romney near the passenger side of the SUV before the vehicle proceeded through the gates and onto the grounds of the White House.
Sandy delivers heavy blow to US economy
WASHINGTON — Superstorm Sandy packed a bigger economic punch than most people had thought. In its sweep through the Northeast, the storm halted sales at major retailers at the start of the crucial holiday shopping season, closed factories and slowed home sales in one of the most densely populated areas of the country. On Thursday, for example, Kohl’s, Target and Macy’s blamed the storm for weak sales in November. Macy’s and Nordstrom Inc. reported their first monthly sales drop since late 2009, when the U.S. economy was just emerging from the Great Recession. And the government said this week that new-home sales plunged 32 percent in the Northeast last month and nearly 12 percent in the South. By contrast, sales surged nearly 63 percent in the Midwest and nearly 9 percent in the West. Sandy is being blamed for about $62 billion in damage and other losses in the U.S., most of it in New York and New Jersey. It’s the secondcostliest storm in U.S. hisBy BEN FELLER The Associated Press tory after Hurricane Katrina, which caused $128 billion in damage in inflation-adjusted dollars. New York is seeking $42 billion in federal aid, including about $9 billion for projects to head off damage in future storms. New Jersey is seeking nearly $37 billion in aid, including $7.4 billion for future projects. Still, reports this week showed that the economic damage was confined mainly to the Northeast. In other parts of the country, the economy picked up in early November, when many New Yorkers were still without power. And next year, rebuilding efforts in the Northeast could help jump-start the broader U.S. economy. That’s especially true if Congress and the White House reach a budget deal that prevents sharp tax increases and spending cuts from taking effect in January. Homes must be rebuilt, cars need to be replaced and many people are likely to step up spending once the storm’s impact starts to fade. All that would help accelerate growth. The U.S. economy grew at a moderate 2.7 percent annual rate from July through September, the government
since congressional leaders met with Obama at the White House. “Unfortunately, many Democrats continue to rule out sensible spending cuts that must be part of any significant agreement that will reduce our deficit,” Boehner said. At the White House, presidential press secretary Jay Carney took on a confrontational tone, saying: “There can be no deal without rates on top earners going up.” “This should not be news to anyone on Capitol Hill. It is certainly not news to anyone in America who was not in a coma during the campaign season,” he said. The tenor of the public remarks, however, suggested the hard bargaining was about to begin. Four weeks remain before the year-end deadline and negotiations such as these often don’t gel until time is running out. For Obama, the trip to Pennsylvania is part of a strategy to press his case publicly even while negotiating privately. He has already met with small business owners and with middle-class families in separate White House events. He has also invited business and labor leaders to the White House as well as Democratic operatives who can echo his plans on the airwaves.
Clinton: UN vote for Palestine hurts peace hopes
WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has criticized the United Nations’ recognition of Palestine for creating “further obstacles in the path to peace” between Palestinians and Israelis. Speaking at a conference in Washington, Clinton called the resolution approved Thursday “unfortunate and counterproductive.” She said the U.S. believes that “only through direct negotiations between the parties can the Palestinians and Israelis achieve the peace that both deserve: two states for two people, with a sovereign, viable and independent Palestine living side-by-side in peace and security with a Jewish and democratic Israel.” Despite American opposition, the U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly recognized the state of Palestine. The vote was 138-9 with 41 abstentions.
Obama and Romney together: Chili, not chilly
WASHINGTON — Three weeks after the election, Mitt Romney made it to the White House. It wasn’t the start of a term as Romney had envisioned. But it was, at least, all on good terms with the man who defeated him, President Barack Obama. Over a private lunch on Thursday, Obama and Romney had some white turkey chili, Southwestern grilled chicken salad and — from the reports of it — the kind of actual conversation that never happens while two presidential nominees are bashing each other’s ideas during a campaign. They shook hands in the Oval Office. They spoke of American leadership in the world. They pledged to keep in touch. Maybe even work together. All that, at least, according to a White House statement about what happened behind closed doors. The two men themselves never faced reporters. “Each man wanted to have a private conversation,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney. “They didn’t want to turn it into a press event.” Much has happened already in American politics since the Nov. 6 election, when voters ended a fierce presidential race by choosing Obama in convincing fashion. Romney is among those who have opined on why he lost, telling donors Obama won by giving “gifts” to groups like Latinos, blacks and young voters. Carney said that comment, widely panned as disparaging by leaders of both parties, did not hang over the postelection meeting of the two men. The spokesman underscored Obama’s interest in listening to Romney’s ideas. Obama presumably did so without accusing his former rival of having “Romnesia” about his own positions, as the president had once charged with a wicked smile. Long gone too, it seemed, was Romney’s accusation over the summer that Obama was running a “campaign of division and anger and hate.” “Gov. Romney congratulated the president for the success of his campaign and wished him well over the coming four years,” the White House statement said. And this: “They pledged to stay in touch, particularly if opportunities to work together on shared interests
said Thursday. Weaker growth is predicted for the October-December quarter. Sandy shut down businesses from North Carolina to Maine and cut off power to 8 million homes in 10 states. Many people could not go to work and weren’t paid for weeks. Applications for unemployment benefits rose to an 18-month high in the first week of November, driven by a surge in applications in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Such applications have fallen sharply since. But the increase earlier this month will likely depress job growth for November. Many economists predict that net job growth for November will range between 25,000 and 75,000 — well below the 171,000 jobs added in October. A Federal Reserve survey released Wednesday said economic activity in October and early November slowed from the previous six-week period in three of its banking districts covering territory from Philadelphia to Maine. That contrasted with the Fed’s nine other banking districts, which all reported improvement in growth. arise.” Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom agreed that it was a “very friendly lunch” between two men who spoke about the big challenges facing the nation. Still, Romney did not get the warmest of welcomes coming into the White House gates. The Secret Service said a man interfered with his vehicle as it arrived at a secure checkpoint near the White House. The man was later interviewed by an officer and became combative, the Secret Service said. He was charged with assault on a police officer and unlawful entry. As for the meeting that followed, aides familiar with both sides said it amounted to political symbolism and a promise kept but that it had no substantive or specific agenda. Obama had told the watching world on election night that he would sit down with Romney in the weeks ahead. That they did, in the dining room just off the Oval Office. As much as the bitter campaign consumed 2012, it faded remarkably quickly. Obama is in a fiscal fight with Congress, with the economy at stake.

Lady ’Dawgs hold off Grove in OT
By JIM METCALFE
ELIDA — Both Elida and Columbus Grove were looking to push the pace and squeeze off a lot on shots in their girls basketball non-league encounter Thursday night on the Union Bank Court of the Elida Fieldhouse. Neither shot the ball all that well despite the tempo. It came down to the free-throw line in overtime, where the host Lady ’Dawgs sank 7-of8 in sealing a 58-54 victory. “We put in a lot of time at the free-throw line in practice; you figure you’re going to be in a lot of close games and the line wins and losses a lot of them,” Elida co-coach Elise Jenkins explained. “It’s not just one or two girls, either; a number of girls hit big free throws. Of course, Kylie (Downton) gets a big offensive rebound to send us to overtime. Again, if someone has an off-night — or a couple — someone is there to pick up the slack. That is what we want to instill in this program.” Tied at 46-46 to start the 4-minute overtime — courtesy of a last-second putback by the junior Downton in regulation — the Bulldogs (1-2) drew first blood on a basket off the tip by junior Megan Verhoff at 3:53 and two free throws by senior Breanne Halker (10 markers, 7-of-8 at the line; 3 dimes) at 2:52. Back came the ’Dawgs (2-1). Senior O’sha Owens (12 markers, 3 assists, 4 steals) hit a baseline jumper at 2:35 and two singles by Downton (10 markers, 5 boards, 4 thefts) at 2:07 knotted the score. A single by Verhoff at 1:56 gave the visitors their last lead. A bomb from the left wing by Owens at 1:38 gave the hosts the lead for good. A toss by Halker at 1:23 got them within one but then Elida hit 5-of6 free throws in the final 41.9 ticks — two by sophomore Sabrina Kline (team-high 17 markers, 3 bombs; 5 caroms), 1-of-2 by Owens and two by
Browns defense on a dominating roll
By TOM WITHERS The Associated Press BEREA — For the past two weeks, Cleveland’s defense has been a swarming mass that will stop at nothing to inflict pain and punishment on its opponent. The Browns have been ruthless, relentless. “They’re like a bunch of fire ants,” offensive coordinator Brad Childress said. With consecutive dominant performances against Dallas and Pittsburgh, Cleveland’s defense is establishing itself as one of the NFL’s up-and-coming units. Don’t tell cornerback Joe Haden that, though. He believes the Browns deserve to be considered among the elite already. “I would say we’re one of the top five defenses, for sure,” Haden said Thursday as the Browns (3-8) continued to prepare for Sunday’s game against the Raiders (3-8). “We have people who can play their position, are really good at it and everybody’s established now and they understand what’s going on. “We have playmakers that can make plays at every level and when we’re all healthy and everybody’s doing their thing, we’re up there with the best.” They’ve certainly been at their best the past two Sundays. Last week, the Browns forced eight turnovers — five fumbles, three interceptions — in a 20-14 win over the Steelers. The eight takeaways were the most by any team since 2001 and most by a Cleveland team since 1989. Also, the Browns held Pittsburgh to 49 yards rushing, the fewest by a Cleveland opponent in nine years. One week earlier, the Browns sacked Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo seven times and allowed Dallas only 64 yards rushing. Prior to their bye, the Browns were allowing 132.2 yards on the ground per game. Since then, they’re giving up just 56 — the league’s best total. It’s no coincidence that defensive tackles Ahtyba Rubin and Phil Taylor have played in both games. Taylor missed Cleveland’s first eight games after undergoing surgery to repair a chest muscle the 335-pounder tore while lifting weights in May. The underrated Rubin sat out three games with a calf injury. But now that the beefy pair have been reunited, the Browns’ defense has become a heavyweight. “It’s like baseball,” Browns coach Pat Shurmur said. “You need to be strong up the middle. When you have two big sturdy guys in there that can play the run on first and second down and then get push when it’s time to throw the football, that definitely helps your run game.” Cleveland’s defensive line has become the team’s strength. The injuries to Taylor and Rubin allowed rookie tackles Billy Winn and John Hughes to get more playing time right away; while there may have been some early growing pains, the two kids have quickly matured into dependable players. Also, the return of Taylor and Rubin has freed up ends Jabaal Sheard and Frostee Rucker to make more plays and allowed defensive coordinator Dick Jauron to rotate Juqua Parker and Ishmaa’ily Kitchen into the lineup without worrying about letdown. It’s taken a while but the Browns finally have the defense on the field they envisioned having to start the season. It’s all come together. “We’re just flying around playing as a solid group, a bigtime unit and we’ve been trying to get a complete game out of us for a while,” said Rucker, signed by Cleveland as a free agent in the offseason after six years with Cincinnati. “We’ve shown flashes here and there. Starting the year, we played some good ball. It got a little bit away from us and now we’re just right back to where we want to be. We’re getting guys back and we just want to make something happen these last couple of games.” They made something happen last week. The Browns seemed to be all over the field. They
5-11 junior Carly Stetler (7 rebounds) at 11.2 ticks to seal the deal. The only points the visitors could manage were on a drive by junior Rachel Schumacher at the 30-second mark. “The girls and I are crushed but this is also a great learning experience for us. We have three letterwinners back from last year and we are so young,” Grove coach Chad Ricker said. “Elida seems to have turned a corner already and it would have been a nice feather in our caps to get this one on the road tonight. Still, for us, it wasn’t a league game. It’s why we scheduled these guys and Lima Senior in the opener to toughen us for the PCL and NWC races and we have improved so much from the first half of our opener.” The visitors canned 18-of54 shots (33.3%), including 5-of-24 downtown, to 18-of52 for the hosts (34.6%), including 4-of-16 long range. Both teams were looking to vary their defenses somewhat from the beginning, with Elida looking to use more full-court pressure than their counterparts. They combined for 8-of-22 shooting (4-of-9 for the hosts) and 10 miscues (6 by Elida). A steal and layup by sophomore Sydney McCluer at the 1-minute mark was enough to give the guests a 12-10 advantage after eight minutes. “We tried a number of different defenses throughout the game: 2-3 zone, man, full-court pressure, even a box-and-1 late on (Sydney) McCluer; she was hurting us quite a bit over the course of the game,” Jenkins added. “Right now, we can’t be a 32-minute full-court pressure team; we don’t want to be giving up a lot of layups. Offensively, we’re a lot better running an offense. Coming in, it was more of ‘get me the ball so I can make a move’ attitude; we’re teaching more
patience now, that they have to trust the offense. It’s a process.” Both teams had eight miscues in the second period but fouls began to mount, making things more difficult to get into an offensive flow. In this case, that seemed to benefit the home team as they got to the line more consistently overall (18-of-28 for the night for 64.3% to 13-of-18 for the guests for 72.2%). They held the largest lead of the night — showing how close this matchup really was — at 22-17 on a left-elbow jumper by junior Torie McAdams (11 markers, 9 caroms) at 1:55. Senior Renee Karhoff — who helped offset the loss of 6-1 junior Julia Wynn, who was out with an ankle injury, against the taller Bulldogs with 15 boards and six boards before fouling out in the fourth period — laid one in off the glass at 39 ticks but McAdams laid in a lob from Stetler at the 20-tick mark to make it 24-19 at the half. “We started off well but then the second period hit and the fouls started to come and we lost our rhythm,” Ricker added. “Basically, I had four guards with two fouls and I was just hoping to get to halftime; we were only down five. It was better the second half. I like the shots we were getting; we just didn’t get them to fall. We tried to give our fans a good show and overall, I felt we did. We’ll keep getting better, too.” The game tightened up even more in the third period. After junior Sammi Stechschulte (17 markers, 5 rebounds) converted a 3-point play at 7:29, the largest lead from then on was four markers, with one tie and two lead changes. When Downton took a half-court theft to the glass with 20 seconds to go, Elida led 33-32. The fourth was the same: the largest lead was four and there were four lead exchanges and three ties. Grove battled back to take a 46-44 edge
on two free trows by Halker with 11.8 seconds remaining in regulation. After calling timeout, Elida went the length of the court and got the ball to Stetler for a trey but she missed; however, the 5-5 Downton got the carom and laid it in off the glass, not giving the Bulldogs enough time to call timeout before the buzzer went off. Both teams secured 38 rebounds (15-13 offensive in favor of Elida) and Grove had 23 miscues and 24 fouls to 21 and 19 for Elida. Both teams return to action Tuesday with junior varsity tips at 6 p.m.: Elida hosts Spencerville and Grove commences PCL action at Continental. In JV action, the Grove ran off with a 44-16 triumph. Sophomore Becca Endicott led the visitors with eight, while sophomore Yea Lee Kim and freshman Skylar Hurst had four each for Elida.

attacked Pittsburgh’s running backs, causing four of them to fumble. It was rare when a Cleveland defender made a solo tackle. Usually, there were two or three orange helmets flying to the football, and more than one pair of hands ripping at the ball and trying to force a fumble. The Steelers got stripped bare. Along with creating turnovers, the Browns let the Steelers convert just 1-of-9 third downs, the lowest total by a Cleveland opponent since 2006. It’s been two terrific weeks but Haden, who was suspended four games and was injured for another, knows for the Browns defense to be regarded among the league’s best, like Pittsburgh’s or Baltimore’s, they’ll have to do it again, and again, and again. “We’re just going to keep coming in every week and keep hopefully building on those performances and then you have no choice but to look at us like a dominating defense,” he added. “That’s what we’re going for. You have to earn it.”
NOTES: Browns KR Josh Cribbs did not practice with what is being called a “shoulder/chest” injury by the Browns. Cribbs declined to talk about his injury. ... Browns QB Brandon Weeden was not limited in practice for the second day in a row after returning from a concussion sustained Sunday. ... With heavy rain in the forecast for Sunday’s game, Childress joked that it doesn’t impact his game plan. “I don’t think they’ve got a typhoon defense,” he cracked. ... Browns CB Dimitri Patterson has practiced the past two days and hopes to play after missing six games with a severe ankle injury.
Lady Knights squeak by Tinora 59-55 By JIM COX DHI Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org DEFIANCE — There was no evidence that this was only the third game of the season Thursday night, as two of the best Division IV teams in the area clashed at Tinora. Crestview escaped with a 59-55 win in a classic defensive slugfest. Both teams are now 2-1. Free throw shooting was the big difference in the game, with Crestview firing away at a 74-percent clip (17-of-23), while the Rams were an icy 38 percent (6-of-16), but there was a lot more to this game than that. The Knights’ sensational freshman Emily Bauer nailed a putback of her own miss with 14 seconds left in the third period to put Crestview on top to stay, 39-37. However, the Knights’ lead was a precarious one throughout the fourth quarter. Another Bauer layup (assist Mariah Henry) with 4:05 left in the game got the lead all the way up to 49-43 but then things got shaky for the visitors. A Ram free throw, then a layup off a Knight turnover, closed the margin to 49-46 but Bauer calmly nailed two freebies -- 51-46 at 3:22. Tinora’s deadly (from the field) point guard, Erica Smay, hit from the left elbow but, after a Crestview miss, Smay was errant on two free throws to keep it at 51-48. Knight sophomore Lindsey Motycka, who had played an outstanding game up to that point, fouled out on the play that sent Smay to the stripe. Kirstin Hicks hit the 7th
and 8th in the Knights’ string of 11 straight fourth quarter free throws -- 53-48 -- but Smay treyed from the left wing to cut it to two. Bauer hit a dandy reverse layup on the break but Tinora’s Breanna Hughes banked in a three from the left side and it was back to 55-54 at the 1:22 mark. Hicks canned two more from the stripe, then Tinora’s Rachel Wachtman and Crestview’s Henry each split a pair at the line to keep it a 1-possession game -- 58-55 at 0:23. The Knights’ Kennis Mercer misfired on both ends of a double bonus but Smay’s game-tying three was partially blocked and Henry snared the board, adding another free throw at the end. The first half was even more of a defensive donnybrook than the second, with shots hard to get, though usually going in when they came. Tinora was 9-for-16 (56%) in the first 16 minutes, Crestview 8-of-14 (57%). There were only 10 rebounds to be had -- six by the visitors, four by the home team. The Knights led only once -- at 13-12 -- in that half. The third period was a good one for the Knights, as they netted 9-of-16 fielders, with five of those baskets coming from Bauer. Tinora was still hot as well, nailing 5-of-11 field goal tries. There were six ties and three lead changes during those eight minutes. The young Knights (Henry is the only senior) shot remarkably from the field (55% on 21-of-38) in the game, as well as from the line. They also won the board battle 23-15, although the Rams got the better of the turnovers, 16-23. Tinora shot a solid 47 percent (21-of-45) from the field for the game; those numbers included seven treys. The Rams’ extended man defense kept Crestview from shooting from beyond the arc at all. Knight coach Greg Rickard was pleased with the performance of his young team, except for the turnovers: “At times, we handled their defense well and at other times we didn’t. At one stretch, I called timeout and we had made five turnovers in seven possessions. That’s one thing we have to clean up. That was our Achilles heel last year. You can’t be in the twenties against really good teams and expect to win. “But at crunch time everybody stepped up,” Rickard was quick to add. “We talked about getting mentally tough in these road games and I thought we responded pretty well in the fourth quarter.” Bauer and Motycka led Knight scorers with 22 and 11. Smay had 17 for Tinora. Tinora (3-0) won the jayvee game 25-15. The Rams were led in scoring by Nicolle Helberg with eight. Crestview (1-2) was led by Claire Zaleski with eight, all in the first half.

Allen, Heat top short-handed Spurs 105-100
By TIM REYNOLDS The Associated Press MIAMI — The NBA plans to make San Antonio pay for resting four starters. The Miami Heat almost could not. Ray Allen’s 3-pointer with 22.6 seconds left gave Miami the lead, LeBron James finished with 23 points and the Heat rallied late to beat the Spurs 105-100 on Thursday night — digging deep despite San Antonio’s decision to have four top players resting at home in a move that bothered NBA Commissioner David Stern. The Spurs played without Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green, all sent back to San Antonio by coach Gregg Popovich, who said the move was in his team’s best interest. Stern disagreed, calling the decision “unacceptable,” apologizing to fans and saying that sanctions against the Spurs will be forthcoming. After the game, Popovich noted he was unaware of Stern’s statement and declined comment about what it might mean. “Oh, it would have been great if we won,” Spurs forward Matt Bonner said after hearing about Stern’s statement. “It goes back to what I was saying, I’m sure everybody else was saying before the game. We have faith in everybody on our roster. We think we have one of the deepest teams in the league.”
The Heat weren’t disagreeing afterward. “We survived,” Chris Bosh said. “And we won. They have a bunch of talented guys over there. I know that nobody’s going to really give them credit but they are a tough bunch.” How tough? Try this — the Spurs led by seven with 4:48 left and the margin was still 98-93 when Gary Neal made a 3-pointer with 2:14 See ALLEN, page 7

Falcons pick off Brees 5 times, beat Saints 23-13
By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press
ATLANTA — The Atlanta Falcons moved to the brink of clinching a division championship. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints wound up with egg on their faces. After racing to a 17-0 lead, the Falcons turned to their defense to make it stand up, picking off five of Brees’ passes and ending his NFLrecord touchdown streak in a 23-13 victory over the Saints on Thursday night. The Falcons (11-1) will clinch the NFC South with a month to go if Tampa Bay loses at Denver on Sunday. They also dealt a big blow to the Saints (5-7) and their fading playoff hopes. William Moore had two of the five interceptions, which were the most of Brees’ career and came four days after he had two passes picked off and returned for touchdowns in a loss to San Francisco. “That’s the first time that’s ever happened to me, so that’s extremely disappointing,” Brees said. “I pride myself on being a good decision-maker and not someone who will be a detriment to the game.” Brees had thrown a touchdown pass in 54 consecutive games, breaking Johnny Unitas’ long-standing record earlier this season. There was an apparent scoring pass to Darren Sproles late in the first half but it was nullified by a penalty. “I didn’t realize that until we walked off the field,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “That’s an unbelievable streak. Drew Brees is an outstanding quarterback. The way the defense played tonight speaks volumes. The guys had gone out there and thrown touchdown after touchdown game after game after game.” After the Sproles TD was wiped off the board, Brees made another huge mistake with New Orleans inside the Atlanta 10, allowing the clock to run out without at least attempting a field goal. When the Saints arrived in Atlanta, their bus was pelted by eggs at the airport, epitomizing the long rivalry between the teams. New Orleans had dominated in recent years, winning four in a row and 11 out of 13. This time, Michael Turner scored on Atlanta’s opening possession, Tony Gonzalez hauled in a touchdown pass from Matt Ryan and Matt Bryant booted three field goals, including a 55-yarder. The defense did the rest. Thomas DeCoud, Sean Weatherspoon and Jonathan Babineaux also had interceptions for Atlanta; another pick by Corey Peters didn’t count because of a penalty. Brees had a couple of games with four picks but nothing like this. He finished 28-of-50 for 341 yards. The defending NFC South champion Saints lost their second in a row and will likely have to win out to have even a faint hope of making the postseason during a tumultuous year that was marred by a bounty scandal and a season-long suspension for coach Sean Payton. After winning so many close games, the Falcons started this one as if they were intent on a rout. Ryan completed a pass on the first play from scrimmage, then turned it over to a running game that has struggled most of the season. Turner burst around right end for a 35-yard gain. Jacquizz Rodgers broke off two straight 14-yard gains. Finally, it was Turner going in standing from 3 yards out, giving Atlanta a quick 7-0 lead. That was Turner’s 58th touchdown in five seasons with the Falcons, breaking the team record he had shared with Terance Mathis. Atlanta struck again in the opening minute of the second period. Julio Jones hauled in an 18-yard throw from Ryan, setting up a 17-yard TD pass to Gonzalez in the back of the end zone. He beat former teammate Curtis Lofton; maybe as a sign of respect, Gonzo just flipped the ball over the crossbar instead of his customary basketball dunk. Brees’ second interception, a sloppy pass behind running Chris Ivory that deflected into the arms of Sean Weatherspoon, set up Bryant’s 45-yard field goal for a 17-0 lead.

the Saints totally dominated. Mark Ingram scored on a 1-yard run, capping an 11-play, 80-yard drive, and New Orleans should have tacked on more points at the end of the half. But Brees made a rookie-like mistake with 12 seconds remaining, dumping a pass over the middle to Sproles with no timeouts. He was wrapped up at the Atlanta 3 and the clock ran out before the Saints could spike the ball. “Honestly, I thought we had more time than we did,” Brees added. “The last time I remember, we had 17 seconds. ... But it was down to seven when I looked up after the completion. That wasn’t enough time to get the spike. That’s on me.” But New Orleans got the ball to start the second half and Brees went back to work. This time, he made a couple of nifty moves to avoid sacks, completing six passes on an 83-yard drive consuming 15 plays and more than 6 1/2 minutes. But the Falcons held again, forcing Garrett Hartley to boot a 21-yard field goal that cut it to 17-10. Hartley connected again from much farther out on the Saints’ next possession, a 52-yarder that brought New Orleans even closer. The Falcons, meanwhile, couldn’t do anything offensively. They failed to pick up a first down on five straight possessions, a stretch in which the Saints had a 289-30 lead in total yards and a staggering 18 first downs.

Northwestern State. Ellenberg was 5-of-7 from 3-point range and had five rebounds and six steals. Nicole Kornet, replacing Manning in the starting lineup, scored a careerhigh 19 points. Nicole Griffin 12 and Morgan Hook added 10. Joanna McFarland came off the bench and pulled down 10 rebounds. All nine Sooners scored.

Jasmine Bradley had six rebounds for the Demons (4-3), who shot just 26 percent from the field for the game.

But all anyone will likely remember from this one is Popovich’s decision — and whatever Stern does as a result. “I apologize to all NBA fans,” Stern added. “This was an unacceptable decision by the San Antonio Spurs and substantial sanctions will be forthcoming.” Allen scored 20 points, Dwyane Wade added 19 and Bosh finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds for Miami, now 7-0 at home. Neal had 20 points for the Spurs. Tiago Splitter scored 18 points, Nando De Colo added 15, Boris Diaw scored 12 and Bonner had 10 for San Antonio, which finished a 6-games-in-9-nights road trip with a 5-1 record. Bonner also had 10 rebounds, one more than he had grabbed all season entering the game. Stern’s statement was released roughly the same time as tip-off in Miami for the nationally-televised game.

Earthquake forward Chris Wondolowski voted MLS MVP
By GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press
CARSON, Calif. — Chris Wondolowski won Major League Soccer’s MVP award Thursday by ahuge margin for the San Jose Earthquakes forward who dominated the league’s goal-scoring race. Wondolowski capped his remarkable season by lifting the MVP trophy at Home Depot Center during the week of festivities leading up to the MLS Cup on Saturday. “It’s an individual award but I like to think of it as a team award, because I wouldn’t be here without those guys,” he said. “There’s not many oneman goals scored by our team, and that shows what kind of a team we have.” The Bay Area native scored 27 goals, tying the MLS season record set by Tampa Bay’s Roy Lassiter in 1996, and won the Golden Boot as the league’s top scorer while leading San Jose to the Supporters’ Shield with the best regular-season record. He is the first Earthquakes player to win the MVP award, and the first MLS player to lead the league in goals three straight years.
came into the game averaging a combined 23.6 points, or 1.6 points less than James averaged entering Thursday night. And when the Heat ran out to a 16-6 lead, it seemed as though a blowout was in the offing. After all, even the oddsmakers in Las Vegas expected it to be that way — the Heat were favored by six points in most sports books before the news broke that the Spurs’ regulars were resting, after which the line swelled to 13. Apparently, no one told the Spurs that the second-string was supposed to play secondfiddle. San Antonio closed the first quarter on a 21-6 run, taking a 27-22 lead after the period, and simply did not go away. The Spurs led by as many as seven at one point and after James Anderson made a pair of free throws with 0.6 seconds left in the third, San Antonio held a 76-73 lead heading into the final 12 minutes. But once again, Jamesto-Allen proved magical for Miami. With the Heat down by one, James nearly lost the ball in the lane, collected himself
and kicked it out to Allen, who connected from the left wing to put Miami ahead to stay. Before the game, Popovich announced he decided to sit his core when he saw how challenging this particular part of the schedule was for his team. “Everybody has to make decisions about their schedule, about players playing and back-to-backs and trips and that sort of thing,” Popovich added before the game. “In our case, this month we’ve had 11 away games, after tonight. We’ve had an 8-day trip and a 10-day trip and we’re ending it with four (games) in five nights here. I think it’d be unwise to be playing our guys in that kind of a situation, given their history.” It’s not unlike other moves Popovich has made before; in fact, not only did he give Duncan, Parker and Ginobili time off together toward the end of last season, which was condensed by a lockout, he actually flew home to San Antonio with them and took a 2-game, preplayoff sabbatical. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Popovich’s move didn’t
affect Miami’s preparation. “Each organization has a big-picture view of what they are trying to get accomplished and I think the league respects that,” Spoelstra added.
NOTES: Miami last played on Saturday, at home; San Antonio had played on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday, all on the road. ... A moment of silence was held before the game for Sasha McHale, the daughter of Houston coach Kevin McHale. Sasha McHale died Saturday at age 23. ... It was the third straight home game in which Miami trailed in the fourth quarter. ... The back-and-forth game ended a run of blowouts in the Heat-Spurs series. The previous five meetings were decided by an average of 24.8 points, including three 30-point games — two of those Spurs wins in San Antonio, the other a Heat win in Miami. WARRIORS 106, NUGGETS 105 OAKLAND, Calif. — Andre Iguodala’s 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded was waived off and the Golden State Warriors held on for a wild 106-105 win over the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night after four replay reviews over the final 3.4 seconds. Iguodala received a cross-court inbounds pass and connected from the left wing with a hand in his face; Denver players celebrated by running off the court toward their locker room. But the Warriors stayed put and waited on yet another review by officials at the scorer’s table — then began their own cheers at raucous Oracle Arena when officials ruled the shot came just an instant after time expired. Iguodala missed the last of three free throws that would have tied the game with 3.4 seconds to go but Denver still had two more chances to win.
The 29-year-old former Earthquakes reserve team player received 91 percent of MLS club management votes, 97 percent of media votes and 71 percent of player votes for a combined 259 percent. Thierry Henry of New York Red Bulls was runner-up with a combined 14 percent and Graham Zusi of Sporting Kansas City was third with 7 percent. “There’s a terrific story that Chris brings to our league, one I think serves as an inspiration for all those tens of millions of people that play this game,” MLS Commissioner Don Garber said. “To be able to go and get signed by an MLS club, play as a reserve player and then become one of the great players in Major League Soccer is something that speaks to his tremendous prowess.” Wondolowski wasn’t recruited to play Division I soccer out of De La Salle High School in Concord, Calif., but drafted by MLS’ first version of the Earthquakes in 2005 after starring at Chico State. He moved to Houston with that Earthquakes franchise in 2006 but scored just four MLS goals in parts of four seasons with Dynamo before the expansion Earthquakes acquired him in a trade in June 2009.

Messi, Ronaldo, Wambach St✩r G✩zing Gilda’s Club name change up for FIFA awards
By TALES AZZONI The Associated Press SAO PAULO — Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Andres Iniesta are the finalists for FIFA’s world player of the year award. They were picked from a list of 23 candidates for this year’s Ballon d’Or, with Messi looking to become the first player to win the award four times. The Argentina and Barcelona playmaker won the award the last three years. “I think they are perfect picks. There is no doubt these players are among the best,” said former Brazil great Ronaldo, a 3-time award winner. “Messi and Ronaldo are really the only ones with a chance of winning, that’s how it’s been recently.” The winner will be announced in Switzerland on Jan. 7. The only other players to have won the FIFA award three times are Ronaldo and former France great Zinedine Zidane. The finalists for the women’s world player award are 5-time winner Marta and America duo Alex Morgan and Abby Wambach. They led the United States to its third straight Olympic gold medal in London. Wambach made the short list last year, finishing third in the voting. “Women’s football was at its best this year,” FIFA President Sepp Blatter said, noting the record crowds attending the matches at the London Games. Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque, former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola and Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho were in the running for the world coach of the year award. The women’s coach of the year award nominees are France’s Bruno Bini, Japan’s Norio Sasaki and former U.S. coach Pia Sundhage, who led the team to the gold at the 2012 Games. The Puskas Award for the best goal of the year will be presented to Radamel Falcao, Neymar or Miroslav Stoch. The 25-year-old Messi won his second Golden Boot award this year for scoring the most goals in Europe’s domestic leagues last season. He has scored 82 goals this calendar year, putting him only three shy of Gerd Mueller’s record. Messi won last year’s Ballon d’Or prize over Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a team leading 46 goals last season for Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo — the winner in 2008 — was one of the six nominees from Real Madrid, along with Xabi Alonso, Karim Benzema, Iker Casillas, Mesut Oezil and Sergio Ramos. In addition to Messi and Iniesta, the 23-player list also included Barcelona players Xavi Hernandez, Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets. Iniesta finished second to Messi in the 2010 vote. Seven Spain internationals made the 23-name list and all three on the short list play in the Spanish league. “This shows how strong the football is in Spain, not only in the clubs but also the national team,” FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke said. “We have a very strong (Spanish) football system in place.” Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli and Brazil forward Neymar were also in the running. Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney was the only English player on the list, while United teammate Robin van Persie also was a candidate after being the Premier League’s leading scorer last season for Arsenal. Juventus veteran Gianluigi Buffon was among the three goalkeepers in the list, along with Casillas and Manuel Neuer of Bayern Munich. Marta is looking for an unprecedented sixth award. “It’s a great honor to be in the running again,” Marta said. Neymar won the 2011 goal of the year award and is looking to retain the prize courtesy of his goal for Santos against Internacional on March 7, when he scored following a maze of dribbling from midfield. Falcao is in the running for his overhead kick on May 19 in Atletico Madrid’s game against America de Cali, while Stoch is in the final list for his superb hook shot from the edge of the box for Fenerbahce on March 3. Voting is by national team coaches and captains, and journalists invited by coorganizer “France Football” magazine.
insult to late comedian?
By SCOTT BAUER and DINESH RAMDE The Associated Press MIDDLETON, Wis. — Remember Roseanne Roseannadana? Or Emily Litella? Or Baba Wawa? Younger generations might not recognize the characters popularized by comedian Gilda Radner. Nor might they remember Radner herself, an original cast member of “Saturday Night Live” who died 23 years ago and for whom a national cancer support group is named. That’s troubling to the Madison-area chapter of Gilda’s Club, which decided to change its name in part because of concern that many don’t know who Radner was. But the move prompted outrage from some Radner fans — who saw it as a slight to a woman who confronted cancer with dignity and humor — and led other chapters across the nation to hastily reaffirm they have absolutely no intention of changing their names. Lannia Syren Stenz, the Madison-area club’s executive director, said her organization decided to change its name to Cancer Support Community Southwest Wisconsin after it realized that most college students were born after Radner died in 1989. “We are seeing younger and younger adults who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis,” Stenz told the Wisconsin State Journal. “We want to make sure that what we are is clear to them and that there’s not a lot of confusion that would cause people not to come in our doors.” Her comments angered some Radner fans, who let loose a storm of criticism on the organization’s Facebook
“Gilda Radner is very much a part of the fiber of this organization. There has never been an intent and there is no intent to lose Gilda as part of the organization.”
— Linda House, executive vice president Gilda’s Club page. “The only educating you’re doing is teaching kids that when they die from cancer, their name will be erased from history in 20 years because the next generation doesn’t know who they are. Way to give them hope!” wrote Mark Warneke, 44, a full-time college student in Arlington, Texas. He told The Associated Press that taking Radner’s name off the foundation was an insult to her memory. Stenz referred questions from the AP to Linda House, executive vice president of the national group. House said there was no evidence that young people are unfamiliar with Radner and the name change was motivated by the desire to make the organization’s mission clear. She called Stenz’s comments “not accurate, period.” “Gilda Radner is very much a part of the fiber of this organization,” House said. “There has never been an intent and there is no intent to lose Gilda as part of the organization.”

Another Yoda statue, Calif. Star Wars fans may get
SAN ANSELMO, Calif. (AP) — Star Wars fans might soon have another Yoda statue in the San Francisco Bay area to visit. Filmmaker George Lucas plans to help build a small park in Marin County that would feature a bronze sculpture of the popular Star Wars character, along with one of Indiana Jones. Lucas’ estate manager, Sarita Patel, said the Yoda statue would be similar to one in San Francisco’s Presidio neighborhood. That one — a full-sized replica of the Jedi sage — lies atop a fountain outside an arts center where Lucas moved most of his operations in 2005. It has become a big draw for fans. Lucas applied for a permit Wednesday to demolish a building on the site of the planned park in San Anselmo, the town where he lives, the Marin Independent Journal reported. He announced over the summer that he planned to donate the land where the buildNORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Captain James T. Kirk will be on hand when the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise is officially retired. A publicist for William Shatner tells the Daily Press that the actor will attend the
Stenz’s club held a ceremony Thursday to mark the name change, which will be phased it over the next month. Radner, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1986, sought support from The Wellness Community in California and wrote about her experience in her book “It’s Always Something,” a reference to one of her characters’ catch-phrases. Her friends and family started Gilda’s Club in 1991 on the East Coast to honor her legacy. The name was inspired by something Radner said after her diagnosis: “Having cancer gave me membership in an elite club I’d rather not belong to.” Gilda’s Club Worldwide merged with The Wellness Community in 2009, and the joint headquarters in Washington changed its name to the Cancer Support Community. Local chapters were given the choice of keeping their names or switching to Cancer Support Community, House said. The 56 chapters around the world deliver $40 million a year in free care to about 1 million cancer patients and their families, she said. Of those chapters, 20 are known as Gilda’s Club, three are Wellness Community and 23 are Cancer Support Community. Radner’s husband, actor Gene Wilder, said he didn’t like the name change but he understood it. He said if he had to break the news to his late wife she might ask, “Do they have to throw me out?” “I’d say, ‘It’s not throwing you out, honey, it’s getting more money.’ And she’d say, ‘OK, I guess if they have to, they have to,”’ he said. “It’s too bad. I wish it weren’t so. But I understand.”

Shatner to attend USS Enterprise retirement event
ship’s inactivation ceremony Saturday at Naval Station Norfolk. Shatner is scheduled to perform today in Newport News. Shatner played Kirk at the helm of the starship Enterprise in the “Star Trek”
ing sits to the San Anselmo Chamber of Commerce, and donate the statues for the proposed park. Lucas has since also agreed to pay for the building’s demolition. The chamber hopes to raise $150,000 to $200,000 to create the park. San Anselmo Town Manager Debra Stutsman said the demolition application, which includes a historical analysis of the building, will be reviewed by the town’s Planning Commission and Historical Commission. The building, as well as a fresco inside, date back to 1945. Patel said Lucas plans to donate the fresco to the Spanish consulate in San Francisco. Lucas built his film operation in Marin County and had planned to put up a palatial new digital media production studio there. But he abandoned those plans earlier this year in the face of opposition from neighbors and what he said were delays in the approval process. television series and several movies. The world’s first-nuclear powered aircraft carrier returned to Norfolk from its final deployment earlier this month. Saturday’s inactivation will be its last public ceremony.

Miracles are everywhere
If we take the time and effort to look closely, we will realize that miracles are all around us. Almost everything, when viewed properly, is a miracle. Life, the solar system, and matter itself are miraculous. These things are awe-inspiring and defy easy explanations from almost any perspective. From a philosophical point of view it is impossible to answer the question why there is a universe in the first place, and once we begin to look at life and the material universe from a scientific perspective we see that it is infinitely complex and always amazing. One doesn’t have to be religious to be inspired by the world around us, and many scientists and students of science wax poetic when they begin to grasp the miraculous intricacies of our wondrous universe. Many people think of miracles as God doing something to violate the laws of nature, of God doing tricks for us, as it were. But, God is the very author of the laws of nature, if you want to see the miracle, just look around you. It’s in the starry heavens above you, in the sand beneath your feet, and in the beating heart within you, and perhaps most of all in the mass of neurons which is your brain and which allows you to contemplate it all. —Christopher Simon “Unless you people see signs and wonSeeing images of Earth from space can ders, “ Jesus told him, “you will never be- induce a variety of powerful feelings, from lieve .” awe over its beauty to fear over its apparent John 4: 38 fragility. Ours is a living, breathing planet and at least so far, we haven’t found any others where life occurs. Seeing pictures of the Earth from outer space is one thing; actually seeing the Earth from outer space is almost invariably a lifechanging experience. Consider what various astronauts have said about their view of our planet from space. James Irwin remarked “That beautiful, warm, living object looked so fragile, so delicate, that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man, has to make a man appreciate the creation of God and the love of God.” Edgar Mitchell observed “Suddenly, from behind the rim of the moon, in long, slowmotion moments of immense majesty, there emerges a sparkling blue and white jewel . . . rising gradually like a small pearl in a thick sea of black mystery. It takes more than a moment to fully realize this is Earth . . . home.” Mitchell says elsewhere that “My view of our planet was a glimpse of divinity.” Finally, consider what Taylor Wang felt upon seeing Earth from space: “A Chinese tale tells of some men sent to harm a young girl who, upon seeing her beauty, become her protectors rather than her violators.
The View From Space
That’s how I felt seeing the Earth for the first time. I could not help but love and cherish her.” Earth is our home and is entrusted to us for its protection. “The heavens declar the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Psalm 19:1

Food containers can make great little organizers. For example, Velveeta boxes are sturdy and just the right size to use for a variety of solutions. They’re wonderful to hold small items such as tea bags, pens, batteries, Scotch tape and scissors. The first reader tip shares how she reuses a Velveeta box. Velveeta boxes: I wrapped some of the boxes with contact paper and use them as utensil organizers in my kitchen drawer. Four boxes fit perfectly, and now I have more room to stack all of my spoons, knives and forks. -Lisa F., Florida Shoe organization: I took an old bookcase and painted it, and now use it in the entryway to hold shoes and baskets of hats and gloves. We all have our own shelf and it’s better than having all the shoes and gloves spilling out of the closet -- or worse, just kicked off in the entryway. In the winter, I put a boot mat down, too. -- Linda, New York Food combinations: I have a couple of recipe tips that I can’t believe I didn’t know until now. The first one is for red beans and rice, which I’ve been eating since I could eat. I recently discovered that putting just a bit of cinnamon in the dried beans as they cook makes a world of difference. The other tip is for chili -- again, I think I’ve cooked a thousand pots of chili in my life. I recently discovered

an added tablespoon or so of Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa makes it wonderful! It’s just a delicious and rich flavor. -- Sue, Texas Dear Sara: Are you sentimental with material possessions, and do you have a hard time getting rid of them? We had my great aunt and great uncle over for supper this evening, and the topic of being sentimental with “things” came up. My uncle said that as he ages, he’s finding he is more and more sentimental about stuff he was given over the years. He says it’s hard to get rid of things because of the memories. Personally, when I attempt to rid out, I have a hard time stuffing things into the bag for Goodwill. I feel sick to my stomach with sentimental feelings during the process, but I do feel liberated when I drop it off for good. I even have a hard time getting rid of my daughter’s toys. I feel guilty trying not to be sentimental, as if I’m being insensitive and don’t love that person enough to keep and cherish the item. Do you have the same problem? -Q.M., Canada Dear Q.M.: I am not terribly sentimental over things. I’ve experienced a loss of possessions, and it really changed my perspective about what is important to me. I’m prone to cherishing photos, ornaments and artwork my children have created. I enjoy them now and I display them, but I plan to gift them to my kids when they’re older (if they want them). Otherwise, no, I don’t hang on to much of anything. I don’t even carry a purse anymore. I loved getting rid of toys in my house. I have four kids, and it was a wonderful parental milestone to reclaim a playroom and make it better suited for older kids. I don’t need material objects to hold on to memories. My little family is my top priority, and I focus on creating new memories and making a space
culprit. When the dog gets a throat culture and treatment, the family stops getting strep throats. -- LYME DISEASE. The ticks that carry Lyme disease bacteria can live on the family pet, get carried into the home by the pet and jump onto you. S A L M O N E L L A , CAMPYLOBACTER and E. COLI. These bacteria can spread through anything contaminated with an infected pet’s stool. You can catch salmonella by touching a seemingly healthy reptile or amphibian. Infection can cause diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever. Rarely, infections can be life-threatening. GIARDIA and CRYPTOSPORIDIUM. These germs can cause diarrhea. They spread through contact with infected animal stool. TOXOPLASMA. This germ is found in cat stool. In infants, it can damage the brain and eyes. An infected pregnant woman can pass the infection to her unborn child, leading to severe mental and physical problems. The disease can spread through handling a cat’s litter box or anything contaminated with cat stool. WORMS. These tiny worms can spread through contact with infected stool. They can cause fever, rash, allergic reactions, eye, liver and lung disease, and brain infections. CHLAMYDIA PSITTACI. This
your pet: -- Take new pets to a veterinarian very soon after adoption or purchase. -- Take your pet to the vet for regular checkups, shots and treatment for worms. -- Always wash your hands thoroughly after cleaning your pet’s stool. -- Clean litter boxes every day unless you’re pregnant. If you’re pregnant then have someone else clean them. -- Do not let children play where dogs and cats go to the bathroom. -- Do not let your pet eat raw food or drink from the toilet. -- Keep infants and young children away from puppies and kittens less than 6 months old, reptiles, baby chicks and ducklings, or any pets with diarrhea. Having said all this, I have never personally seen a person who clearly caught an infection from a family pet. I grew up with dogs as pets, and they never made me sick. And if my parents had taken them away to protect my health, I would have been one unhappy kid.

for members to live in that isn’t cluttered with stuff. Maybe rather than donating family gifts, you could give them to other family members or sell them. It often helps assuage feelings of guilt to know that these items are going to a good home. You don’t have to be the family museum. You explained what your “problem” is pretty clearly. You feel guilty and insensitive. I’d like you to consider that the family and friends who have given you all of these items would not want you to feel burdened by them. Where are all of these items being kept? If they’re stuffed into boxes or closets, they aren’t being treated like treasures, and you can live without them. Keep what is useful and keep what you absolutely love (some things are worth keeping), but give it a place or space that shows it’s important to you. Regarding collections, try to cut them in half to get started. But you’ll have the liberated feeling you mentioned if you can get them down to a single favorite item and let go of the rest. You can always take photos of items for reminiscing. Also, it might help if you had a goal. Maybe you’ve always wanted something and didn’t have the space or money. Reward yourself for purging the things that are cluttering your life.

Wife using son to avoid intimacy
Friday, November 30, 2012
The Herald – 11
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2012 You’ll be capable of some outstanding achievements in the year ahead with anything that materially motivates you. Conversely, in situations where your ambitions have little fire, you’ll be somewhat lackadaisical. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You’ll get a lot more than you give if you negotiate from the other party’s perspective, especially if you go out of your way to be as fair as possible. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A previously closed door to a great opportunity could open for you. However, don’t wait too long to knock; it could be barred again tomorrow. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Things could be looking pretty good for you in the romance department. Someone about whom you care a great deal has you uppermost in his or her mind as well. Maybe the twain can meet. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don’t be too quick to throw away something just because you haven’t used it in quite a while. There’s a good chance it’ll be an item you’ll desperately need the minute it’s gone. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Because you’ll have no problem seeing both sides of an issue that has everybody else in a dither, you’ll be able to cut through the bluster and find a solution. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Sharpen your wits as well as your pencil, and look very closely at your budget. There is an excellent chance you’ll be able to figure out a way to get something you badly want. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you’re feeling a bit restless and need to disengage from your daily routine, this is an excellent time to seek out some fun diversions to undertake with friends. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Because you’re the type of person who always tries to be friendly to everyone, you’ll have a chance to develop a valuable, long-lasting friend. Sometimes niceness can pay off. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are likely to be singled out for special attention and consideration by a powerful person who has a lot of clout. Lucky you -- this will be exactly the kind of powerful support you need. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It’s a better than average day for making things happen, especially where your everyday affairs are concerned. Press for some special favors -- you’ll be surprised at the response. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Others will be receptive to your ideas if what you suggest is fun, or at the very least, imaginative. Make your presentation as creative and exciting as possible. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Someone who has been nice to you before, but never sought out any recognition for his or her efforts, is likely to do something nice for you once again, in his or her own quiet way.

FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. (AP) — Sometimes it’s better to dream, particularly when reality means you’re not an instant multimillionaire. Bob Kangas realized Wednesday night that one of two winning Powerball jackpot tickets — a record $587.5 million — had been bought in Arizona, but he didn’t check his numbers. “I didn’t want to look because I just wanted to dream about being rich,” Kangas said Thursday while checking his tickets at a 4 Sons Food Store in Fountain Hills, the suburban Phoenix shop where he bought his tickets — and where the winning ticket was sold. While lottery officials in Missouri verified its state’s ticket after it was presented to them late Thursday, the Arizona winner had yet to come forward. They have 180 days Sylvia Alexander to do so. A news conference was 47 Years planned for this morning in Missouri. Officials declined to provide details of the winner in advance, not even whether the ticket sold at a Trex Mart gas station in Dearborn was

purchased by someone from that state. Kangas just wanted one night to believe he could soon have more money than he’d know what to do with. “I just wanted to dream all night,” he said, breathing a heavy sigh as he realized his tickets were not winners. “I’ll try again.” In Missouri, speculation had many of Dearborn’s 500 residents buzzing about who had won. Cashiers Kristi Williams and Kelly Blount greeted customers with big smiles and questions about whether they had bought the winning ticket. “It’s just awesome,” Williams said. “It’s so exciting. We can’t even work.” Karen Meyers, a server at the Cook’s Corner Cafe, said she didn’t believe it at first when she heard the winning ticket had been sold nearby. “I think it’s wonderful! I hope someone local won it, not someone just passing through,” she said. “It’s a small town where everyone is really nice.”
