Santa arrives in Delphos!

PAULSBORO, N.J. — A freight train derailed Friday on a railroad bridge that has had problems before, toppling tanker cars partially into a creek and causing a leak of hazardous gas that was blamed for sickening dozens of people, authorities said. Members of the National Transportation Safety Board arrived in New Jersey on Friday afternoon to investigate. They will try to determine whether the derailment was caused by a problem with the bridge or if the derailment was to blame for the bridge’s Ottoville Industrial Arts partial collapse. teacher Jim Hoersten has The Jolly ‘Ol Elf himself rides down Main Street in Delphos during the Hometown Christmas Parade.

Music of the season three dead in
I don’t know what’s going on in your house but mine is festive with most decorations up, some presents wrapped and Christmas music on at every chance. The first day I had the radio on tuned to our hometown station I heard both of my all-time favorite Christmas songs: Christmas Eve/Sarajevo by the TranSiberian Orchestra (which I never get tired of hearing) and Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy by David Bowie and Bing Crosby (an unlikely pair but beautiful in harmony). If you haven’t seen Tran-Siberian Orchestra’s Christmas show live, it is a must see. The light show is unbelievable. My husband and I went it a few years ago and it was awesome. I love electric guitars and violins. Yes! Again, awesome. There’s just something about Christmas music that’s different from all other kinds. I don’t care if it’s country, rock — whatever. It gets me in the mood and moving. It makes me smile. It makes me happy. Christmas carols started as dances. According to, the word “carol” originally referred to a circle dance, “carola,” performed without being sung. When words were added, they were used only as accompaniment to the dance movements. Carols were derived from secular, pagan sources. Greeks and Romans had used them in their plays, festivals, weddings, and birthdays. In the case of the first Christmas hymns, they were always aligned to Christian singing, sung to the melodies of Jewish temple hymns and psalms. Hymns of early church were about Christmas, used as part of worship service. As the church struggled against the influences of pagan customs, carols were strictly prohibited

from sacred services but outside the church, Nativity carols flourished. Thanks goodness. A little rebellion and I get to hear all those beautiful songs. I like them all but I have my favorites. I’ve shared the top two but there is a list as long as my arm of ones I can’t wait to hear each year. Here’s my Top 10 list with my preferred artist(s): 1. Christmas Eve/Sarajevo by TranSiberian Orchestra 2. Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy by David Bowie and Bing Crosby 3. Carol of the Bells by Tran-Siberian Orchestra 4. Gloria In Excelsis Deo by just about anyone 5. Do They Know It’s Christmas? by Band Aid 6. Do You Hear What I Hear? by Vanessa Williams 7. Happy Christmas (War is Over) by John and Yoko Ono 8. The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole 9. Holly, Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives (and no one else!) 10. I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas by Gayla Peevey I’ve decided to hold a little survey.

Breathing vinyl chloride, which is used to make the common plastic PVC, can make people dizzy or sleepy.

More than 60 were discharged by late afternoon, and the handful that remained were in stable condition.

CASPER, Wyo. — A man wielding a sharp-edged weapon killed one person in a Casper neighborhood Friday before killing a male teacher and himself in a community college classroom, causing a campus-wide lockdown as authorities tried to piece together what happened. Police found the suspect and one of the victims dead at a science building on the Casper College campus, which was locked down for about two hours, school and police officials said. The other victim was found about two miles away. The suspect used at least one sharp-edged weapon and no guns were involved, police said. The attacker wasn’t believed to be a Casper College student and it appeared he knew the victims, Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh said. He didn’t identify the suspect or victims but said the victims were a male and a female. “We’re locating next of kin and working on notification absolutely as fast as we can,” Walsh said. He added authorities don’t believe there is any further threat to the community. “I want to emphasize that this is a horrible tragedy,” Walsh said. “And I want the city to ... just feel safe right now. There is no one at large.” The attack at the two-year community college in Casper, about 250 miles northwest of Denver, occurred just before 9 a.m. while class was in session. The college sent out a campus-wide alert via text message and email within two minutes of receiving word of the attack at 9:06 a.m., school spokesman Rich Fujita said. The campus was locked down and the science building was evacuated. The lockdown ended about 11 a.m. after school officials received word police were no longer searching for a suspect, Fujita said. There are fewer classes on Friday than any other day of the week at Casper College, so only between 1,500 and 2,000 of the college’s 5,000 students were there, he said. Political science instructor Chris Henrichsen said he was showing the film “Frost/ Nixon” to his Wyoming and

U.S. government class when he stepped into the hall to get something for a student and was told a homicide had occurred on campus. He went back to his classroom, where students were getting messages about the campus lockdown on their phones. “We locked the door and waited for further instruction,” Henrichsen said. The students were later sent home, but some who parked near a different campus building where the attack occurred had to leave their cars there, Henrichsen said. About two miles away, Dave Larsen said he was headed to the gym when drove passed a body in a gutter with two people standing over it, one talking on a cellphone. Larsen lives about a block from the location of the body, a well-kept neighborhood of mostly single-story houses. Emergency vehicles had the street blocked off Friday afternoon. Police provided some details in a news conference streamed live by the Casper Star-Tribune. Walsh said 33 law enforcement officers from different agencies responded to the college after receiving reports of the attack. He said authorities first thought it might have been an “active-shooter-type situation.” “We quickly contained the building and started a sweep through the building,” he said. Walsh said that within minutes of the initial call, there was another report of a traumatic injury about two miles southwest of campus. That victim was found in the street, the Star-Tribune reported. Classes were canceled for the day. A meeting was held in the afternoon for the 150 teachers and students who remained. College president Walt Nolte addressed them, calling it the worst day of his more than 40 years in higher education. He encouraged the community to come together, Fujita said “It is particularly painful because of our size,” Fujita said of the small, tight-knit campus. Counselors were speaking to students and planned to be available through the weekend. About 450 students live on campus. Classes were to resume on Monday.

enough hostility and competition to melt that life-sized ice sculpture of the bride and groom. And now there’s murder…. The Lincoln Conspiracy – Timothy O’brien What if the plot to assassinate President Lincoln was wider and more sinister than we ever imagined? In the late spring of 1865, as America mourns the death of its leader, Washington, D.C. police detective Temple McFadden makes a startling discovery. Strapped to the body of a dead man at the B & O Railroad station are two diaries, two documents that together reveal the true depth of the Lincoln conspiracy. Securing the diaries will put Temple’s life in jeopardy—and will endanger the fragile peace of a nation still torn by war. Temple’s quest to bring the conspirators to justice takes him on a perilous journey through the gaslit streets of the Civil War-era capital and into back alleys where ruthless enemies await him in every shadowed corner. N O N FICTION The Purpose Driven Life: What On Earth Am I Here For? – Rick Warren Licensed in over 85 languages, The Purpose Driven Life is far more than just a book: it is a guide to a 42-Day Spiritual Journey. On your journey you’ll find the answers to 3 of life’s most important questions: The Question of Existence: Why am I alive? The Question of Significance: Does my life matter? The Question of Purpose: What on Earth am I here for? Living out the purpose you were created for moves you beyond mere survival and success to a life of significance—the life you were meant to live. The Warrior’s Heart – Eric Greitens As a humanitarian, Eric Greitens helped aid workers heal orphaned children in Rwanda and lived in the camps alongside Bosnian refugees. As a warrior, he excelled at the hardest military training in the world and teamed up with fellow SEALs to hunt al Qaeda terrorists in Iraq. Eric brings his adventures to life for teens in this book, sharing stories of friendship, struggle, and hard-earned wisdom. His exciting journey takes readers across the world, from his boyhood home in Missouri, to a factory in China, to the refugee camps of Rwanda, to the battlefield in Iraq. Through his service, he shows how we can all make a difference. The Dust Bowl – Dayton Duncan Award- winning historians and bestselling authors Dayton Duncan and Ken Burns masterfully illuminate the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history. For almost a decade, a devastating combination of drought, wind, and poor farming practices turned millions of acres of the Great Plains into a wasteland. Ceaseless “black blizzards” turned night into day, killed crops and livestock, threatened the lives of small children, and buried homesteaders’ hopes under huge dunes of dirt. Here are stories of incredible hardship: more than 850 million tons of topsoil blew away in a single year; 14 million grasshoppers per square mile descended on parched fields; and one-quarter of the region’s inhabitants packed up and left. But the Dust Bowl is also about courage and resilience of those who remained to save their farms and their families. Luck Or Something Like It – Kenny Rogers For more than half a century, Kenny Rogers has been recording some of the most revered and beloved music in America and around the world. In that time, he has become a living legend by combining everything from R & B to country and gospel to folk in his unique voice to create a sound that’s both wholly original and instantly recognizable. Kenny details his lifelong journey to becoming one of American music’s elder statesmen — a rare talent who’s created hit records for decades while staying true to his values as a performer and a person. His story begins with growing up in Depression-era Texas and goes all the way through his three time Grammy Awards, eighteen American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards, and five Country Music Association Awards. He continues to make music with the passion that has defined him from the start.

It takes a lot of work, but that’s okay, the ‘reader’ is good at doing hard work. At the top of the hill, he and his little brown dog enjoy some hot chocolate and a good book. Of course the journey down the hill is not a lot of work at all for the boy, his brown dog and the red sled.

“Life begins when a person first realizes how soon it will end.” — Marcelene Cox, American writer

One Year Ago • The Church Women’s United’s Interfaith thrift Shop will soon have more space for social services, storage and retail. The former Jauman Insurance building on North Main Street was demolished to make room for an addition on the north side of the existing building. The new space will house the food pantry and other social services, as well as some retail and storage space. 25 Years Ago — 1987 • Vocational-agriculture students from Jefferson and St. John’s schools participated in a one-day workshop on making money on the farm. They were Scott Fetzer, Rick Reynolds, Randy Trentman, Ed King, Gary Gerdeman, Jim Friedrich, John Clark and Jo Joskra. • Delphos Chapter 26, Order of Eastern Star will meet Dec. 3 in Masonic Temple, North Main Street, with an open installation of officers being conducted. Mary Ellen Stewart, worthy matron, will preside. Members of the dining room committee are Carla Harter, Jeanette Jamison, co-chairmen assisted by Mae Thomas, Neva Stemen, Virginia Miller, Diane Neeley, Debra Welch, Pamela Lewis, Margaret Lundgren, Gene Myers, Edward Jamison and Herman Miller. • Members of Shalom Circle met in the social rooms of Gomer United Church of Christ one evening last week. Joyce Larimore was leader. New officers elected for 1988 are president, Peg Walters; vice president, Susan Siefker and secretarytreasurer, Donna A. Martin. Women’s Fellowship chairmen are Donna Martin and Lori Williams. 50 Years Ago — 1962 • Delphos probably will come into the Direct Dialing System of The Telephone Service Company within the first six months of next year, Frank Quatman, assistant to the president of the phone company, said Friday. The hookup of the Delphos area into the direct dialing will result in transfer of telephone operators from Delphos to Lima, Quatman said. • Tom Nomina, son of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Nomina of Delphos, was one of two Miami football players who received most valuable player awards. Nomina plays tackle, and prior to entering Miami, he was an outstanding player for Delphos St. John’s throughout his high school career. Nomina, co-captain of the Miami team, will lead the once-beaten Redskins into the Tangerine Bowl Dec. 22. • Delphos St. John’s Blue Jays blasted the lid off of their 1962-63 season Friday night at the parochial gym by defeating the Coldwater Cavaliers 85-63.

Jim Carder hit 13 points and Rog Schlereth chipped for 10 markers. Ron Grieshop held the scoring honors with 25 points.


I hope you are all getting ready for the holidays today as our trusty band of travelers are taking Chicago by storm. Thank goodness not literally. The weather is perfect to travel up and down the Magnificent Mile of Michigan Avenue and to stroll through the German Christmas Market in Daley Square. For so many of us living in Northwest Ohio, Christmas becomes the only real focus for a holiday season. However some know of the Jewish Holiday- Chanukah (OK you spell it the way you think it should be spelled), we have heard about Kwanzaa and then the Muslim holidays that occur mostly in November and January. It is easy for me to know when the Muslim holidays occur because I live across the street from a Mosque. In some parts of the country, there have been rumors, innuendoes and just plain falsehoods about the postal service’s role in commemorating these events on postage stamps. Let’s start with the EID stamps. First despite email rumors the stamps predated the 9/11 attacks, do not “honor” terrorism and were not issued at the behest of

President Obama. One more rumor brings it all home to me is that it commemorates the Muslim Christmas. None of that is true just like Chanukah is not the Jewish Christmas but we’ll get into that later. Rather, the stamp is part of the Postal Services’ “Holiday” stamp series and has been issued for the past several years. The first EID stamp was issued as a 34-cent stamp and two years ago it was issued as a 44 cent stamp. As with many definitive stamps, they are being issued now as a forever stamp so the value of the stamp will continue to rise with any future rate increases. So what Muslim holidays are being commemorated? Islam recognizes two holidays, specifically known as Eid al-Fitr (Festival of FastBreaking) and Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice). The Arabic script on the stamp says Eid Mubarak, or “Blessed Festival.” This greeting can apply to either of the two celebrations. During this same period of time, we commemorate another week-long holiday known as Kwanzaa. Although the true meanings of this holi-

day are rooted in the culture, community and history of the African world, it is a holiday that was created by an American, Maulana Karenga, in 1966-67. The holiday celebrates and honors African heritage and is observed each year from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1, the last day of which is known as the Day of Assessment. Karenga wrote in his annual message of 2009 that for the African people, this has historically been and remains a time of turning inward, sober assessment of ourselves and community and recommitment to our highest values in heart, mind and practice.” It is a holiday that calls for introspection and reflection. According to one African group, this is a time “when the edges of the year meet, when the old year is going out and the new ear is coming in.” Not unlike the culture of humanity to make resolutions for the New Year, to vow to reinvent ourselves and become what it is we want to be. Kwanzaa symbols include a decorative mat on which other symbols are placed, corn and other crops, a candle holder with seven candles, called a kinara, a communal

cup for pouring a drink, gifts, a poster of the seven principles, and a black, red, and green flag. The symbols were designed to convey the seven principles of unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. The holiday greeting is Joyous Kwanzaa. Families celebrating Kwanzaaadecorate their households with objects of art, colorful African cloth and fresh fruits that represent African idealism. It is customary to include children in Kwanzaa ceremonies and to give respect and gratitude to ancestors. A drink is shared, generally with a common chalice which is then passed around to all celebrants. Non-African Americans also celebrate Kwanzaa. The holiday greeting is “Joyous Kwanzaa”. If you would just allow me for a moment to stop here before I fill the entire page. We’ll continue this in my next article about the remaining holidays and the stamps that define them. But I must ask you a favor. Please keep this column for two weeks and reread it before you read the second installment of my story.


75 Years Ago — 1937 • Much enthusiasm for the future of the Delphos Kiwanis Club was in evidence at a meeting of that organization which was held at the Beckman Hotel Tuesday night. A committee of volunteers was formed for the purpose of conducting a campaign for additional members. This committee consists of O. G. Weger, O. J. Birkmeier, W. B. Gladen and C. C. Raabe. • Delphos is to have a semi-professional basketball team this season. Philip Hall, manager of the team, announced that a number of former Delphos high school cage stars have signed up to play under the name of the Delphos Recreation Club. Members of the team are such well-known players as Jack Adams, Philip Hall, Harold Gonyea, Syl. Thithoff, Dan Rupert, Carl Erickson, Don Seymour, Orlo Miller and Clause Swartz. • The Columbus Grove Rifle Club invaded the local Gramm Truck Builders range and walked away with the winning score.

He scored 292 points out of a possible 300, fir- has followed the private luncheon between ing 10 shots prone for a 100, 10 shots kneeling for a 97 and 10 President Obama and Mitt Romney, about shots off hand for a score of 95. which little is known. Photographers captured grainy images of Romney arriving in a black SUV, from which he emerged unassisted and unguarded. Reporters received only the homophonically ironic luncheon menu in response to queries about what transpired in the presidential dining room: White turkey chili and chicken salad. Alas, where there is a White House, there is always someone willing to whisper a few tidbits in the interest of national curiosity. According to Mr. Fly, who happened to be nearby feasting on a grain of salt, the meeting began with small talk, during which Romney took a stab at self-deprecating humor, while the president remained Rushmorian. President: Governor, nice to see you again. Welcome to my Oval Office. Romney: Thank you, Mr. President. Love the way you’ve decorated the place. Very understated, but where’s the bling? Heh-heh. President: Mitt, you always know just what to say. Jay (press secretary Carney), could you please let the chef know we’re ready? Romney: I don’t suppose your chef speaks Spanish, eh? Just a little immigration humor there. You know I never did employ any illegal aliens, despite what they said. Wow, is that the Churchill bust? I thought you gave it back! President: No, that’s Alfred Hitchcock. I’m a fan. You like turkey chili? Romney: Love turkey chili! Of course, I

Even though fall and winter are my favorite times of the year, I do tend to get a little more down and experience some SAD (seasonal affective disorder). I think because it’s dark so much more and it’s often too cold to go outside. Sometimes I just want to stay curled up in my bed. When I find myself having that urge, I try to think of a project I can focus on. This seems to lift my spirits and without even realizing it, I’m in a better mood. Because we are indoors so much during this time of year, you might have to use your imagination a little more to find fun things to do inside. I used to make jewelry when I was younger. The other day I decided to

try that again. I have a whole collection of beads and various other parts; I just string things together while I watch a movie or listen to music and it’s very therapeutic. The supplies are pretty cheap and then your friends can marvel at the masterpiece you made! Since, unless you belong to a gym, it’s too cold to walk or run outside often at this time, there are easy exercises you can do inside once you get motivated. I personally like yoga. You can find tons of videos online. Obviously you can do higher intensity exercises, depending upon your physical fitness level. Just doing some nice stretching every day will help get you going and make you feel better – at least it does me. Something else that cheers me up this time of year and can bring more light into an otherwise dreary day is lighting candles all over the house, especially fragrant ones. I also love incense. Certain scents have been proven to boost mood. According to Woman’, the scent of roses makes us happier. Lemon is also a mood booster. To warm up after being out in the frigid temperatures, I like to have some hot tea. I have quite the selection at home, and just deciding which one I want is fun for me. It’s the little things in life. I can even get a little crazy with it and throw two different flavored tea bags into my mug. I like to live dangerous-

ly sometimes. This is not for amateurs. Of course, there’s nothing like a bubble bath to warm up and forget that it’s winter for a second. Have your cup of tea on the side of the tub, surround yourself with candles (rose and lemon scented) and just relax and bask in your happiness. When you get out, strike a yoga pose and throw on your new, handmade necklace! Yes, it’s still winter ... but how can anyone be sad with a fun-filled day like that?

love everything, especially America. President: (Smiles while reaching down to pat Bo on the head.) Romney: Hey, who let the dog out? Heh-heh. Carney: Mr. President, lunch is served. President: This way, Mitt. (Seated, the tone becomes more reserved.) Romney: Mr. President, first I want to thank you for extending this invitation. I’m honored to be here and hopeful that I can continue to serve my country in any way you see fit. President: Thank you, Mitt. I really appreciate your willingness to come here today. I know it can’t have been easy and, by the way, my apologies for your reception outside. Romney: Oh, I’m used to hecklers. President: No, I mean the media. Romney: No, that’s what I meant, too. President: Very good. Romney: Well, what can I do for you, Mr. President? Not to be presumptuous, but I think I have some ideas for turning around the economy. President: So I’ve heard, but I’m really not that interested. I mostly invited you here because I said I would. Team of rivals and all that, blah, blah, blah. Romney: Oh. Well, since I’m here, could I just say, Mr. President, that you really must cut discretionary and entitlement spending. Seeking $50 billion more in stimulus funds on top of raising tax rates will break the country. You will decimate the small business community. President, stifling a yawn: So I’ve heard, but again, I don’t really care that much. I was re-elected and elections matter. Legacies

matter even more. I have to raise taxes on the rich and I can’t and won’t cut spending on the less fortunate. Obviously, closing loopholes and capping deductions won’t produce enough revenues to cut the debt and deficit. Romney: Well, no, it won’t, not unless you also significantly cut spending. Moreover, as you know, you’re already raising taxes across the board with Obamacare. What happened to your saying you’d go anywhere and do anything to reach a compromise with Republicans? If we go over this cliff and enter another recession, the American people are going to be hurting and eventually they’ll understand why. President: All true, Governor, but by then my agenda will be entrenched and most Americans -- your benighted 47 percent among others — will be content with the nation’s new organization. Eventually, even the middle class won’t mind coughing up more in taxes to finance what I’ve put in place. By the time I leave office, everyone in this country will have equal access to health care; the rich won’t be so rich and the poor won’t be so poor. What’s wrong with that? Romney: Nothing much, Mr. President, except the reality is that not everyone can have everything. Equal outcomes, which you seem to see as desirable, inevitably means coercion. Moreover, what you’ve just described is not free-market capitalism. President, looking bemused: Your point? Carney: Excuse me, Mr. President, sorry to interrupt, but your next appointments are here. Gov. Christie, Gov. Jindal, right this way. Kathleen Parker’s email address is

Vanlue’s size, experience too much for Wildcats
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ VANLUE — One place to start when figuring out who won the Jefferson at Vanlue boys basketball seasonopener Friday night at “The Stage” in Vanlue was experience; the host Wildcats have six seniors — five of whom played Friday night — versus the visiting Wildcats’ two — only one of whom suited up. The second is size: Vanlue has 6-10 Toledo signee Zach Garber, while the tallest Delphos player was 6-3. It all added up a 53-45 Vanlue victory. Garber (23 points) got it rolling early, scoring 12 of the 22 markers the hosts scored in the first period. At one point, the hosts led by 17 late in the period before the visitors rallied within 22-11 to close the stanza. After that, the Red and White of Jefferson played evenly with their more experienced foe. “It was what you expect of a young team; it’s typical that a young team will start out slowly. We got down 17 at one point and closed the gap,” Jefferson head coach Marc Smith noted. “That was a struggle all during the preseason scrimmages; getting off slowly. We even tried to put the kids in early-game situations in practice but until you go through the varsity wars and figure out what a deficit means at this level, you really won’t learn it.” Freshman Trey Smith, who started his varsity career with a 14-point outburst, led Delphos back in the second period, canning seven of his points. With the visitors getting a better handle on Garber with their combination of defenses, containing him to a mere two points, they climbed back within 28-24 on a Smith bomb from the key with 1:35 left. However, Vanlue used its patient offense to garner a banked-in triple from the right side by Dylan Watson with 2.1 ticks on the board for a 31-24 halftime spread. “Garber requires you to give him so much attention that it does mean others will get some open looks. Either that, or try to go 1-on-1 with a 6-3 players on a 6-10 Division I college player; that is not a winning alternative,” Coach Smith explained. “They did have some guys capable of hitting the three and their seventh man, Austin Smith, hit two. Credit him for doing so but I’d take my chances with the seventh man hurting me than their Division I recruit.” The visiting Wildcats shot 6-of-15 and outboarded their bigger foe 11-6 in the second stanza to help themselves get closer. Despite that potential momentum-grabbing play, the visitors would not go away in the third. They continued to force Vanlue to shoot from the perimeter and it basically worked — 4-of15. However, Delphos could only manage 4-of-12 and also turned it over four times in the last 2-plus minutes to prevent them from getting closer. They were within five points early before Vanlue rebuilt its edge to 41-30 on a Garber inside basket with slightly over a minute left. However, Smith notched a trifecta from the right wing with 46 ticks on the clock to get his team within 41-33. Sophomore Nick Fitch (10 markers) dropped in six for the visitors. Vanlue slowed the pace even more in the fourth, choosing to run its pattern offense and force Delphos to come out of its zone and go man. After building their lead to 48-35 on a Garber inside basket at 5:30, they also forced Jefferson to eventually start fouling to prolong the game and put them on the line. They only hit 3-of-7 in the final 1:04 (9-of-16 for the game for 56.3% to 3-of-5 for Jefferson for 60%). However, that was enough as the closest Jefferson could get was the final score on a 3-point play by Zach Ricker, the lone senior playing, with five ticks left. Vanlue hosts Kalida tonight. Jefferson is off until Friday when they head to Fort Recovery for a 6 p.m. start (junior varsity tip). “The effort we gave was great. I told them that if we can continue to play with that kind of effort, the individual skills will get better and we’ll be fine,” Coach Smith added. “We are a work in process and will be the entire season; we need to get game experience at this level for a number


of our kids. Ross (Thompson - 11 points) was as sick as could be the last two games and nearly went wire-to-wire tonight. It was that way up and down our lineup; they all played well.” In the JV contest, Jefferson used a 12-1 advantage at the free-throw line to open with a 34-24 win. Guiding the guests were junior Tyler Rice with 12 counters and freshman Dalton Hicks added 10. Sam Wagner paced the hosts with six.

Big Green opens season with win over Hornets
By BOB WEBER DHI Correspondent MT. CORY — The Ottoville Big Green opened their boys basketball season on the road with a nonleague contest with the CoryRawson Hornets Friday. The Big Green used a cold shooting performance by the Hornets, coupled with an excellent night from the stripe by themselves, in notching their first win of the season 42-29. The Big Green started the game strong and led by 13 points — 17-4 at the quarter break. The Hornets could not find their shooting touch and were 2-12 from the field after the first eight minutes of play. On the other hand, the Big Green were 6-9 from the field and 4-4 from the stripe during the same stretch. The second quarter was much the same for the Hornets as their shooting woes continued. The Hornets shot 21 percent (5-24) for the first half from the field and were only 1-3 from the foul line. The Big Green were paced by their three returning seniors as Ryan Honigford (10 points), Derek Schimmoeller (8 points) and Cory Fischer (4 points) led the visitors to a 28-10 lead at halftime. Hornets head coach Aaron Long’s message to his team at halftime must have worked as his team came out and cut the Big Green’s lead considerably. The Hornets used their fullcourt press and some long-range shooting from senior Tyler Harris to cut the deficit to 32-25 after three quarters of play. The Big Green only scored four points for the quarter and committed numerous turnovers to help the Hornets’ cause. With the momentum seemingly turning towards the Hornets, Big Green head coach Todd Turnwald started to look inside to his 6-3 junior, Luke Schimmoeller, for some much-needed help on the offensive end of the court. Even though Schimmoeller was unable to connect on his shots from the field, he was able to draw several fouls on the Hornets which he capitalized on (4-6 from the line) and helped his team get into the bonus. The Hornets were never able to close the gap further and continued to foul in the hope of getting the ball back. However, the Big Green had other ideas as they finished off the Hornets in the final stanza and the second half by going 10-12 from the stripe and 15-19 for the game. The Hornets (0-1) were 8-21 (38%) from 2-ball land, 4-23 (17%) from behind the arc and just 1-3 (33%) from the stripe. Harris led the Hornets with 11 points, followed by Matthew Alspach and Grant Risner with nine and seven points, respectively. The Big Green (1-0) were 12-31 (39%) from 2-ball land and 1-3 (33%) from behind the arc. The Green pulled down 28 boards and committed 18 (12 in the second half) turnovers in the win. Honigford (Ryan), Schimmoeller (Derek) and Schimmoeller (Luke) had 14, 12 and six points respectively for the victors. The Big Green will return to action next Friday as they welcome in the Cougars from Van Wert for a 6:30

JV start. The Hornets will next play on the road as they travel to Vanlue for a 6 p.m. JV start next Friday night. The JV game went to the Hornets by a score of 17-5. The Hornets were led by junior Chad Shepler with eight points and freshman Rudy Wenzlick led the Big Green with three points.

The Associated Press Division VI - Maria Stein Marion Local 28, Newark Catholic 21 MASSILLON — Hunter Wilker had not practiced even one play at running back all year. Pressed into service due to injuries, the freshman wide receiver ran for three touchdowns to lead Maria Stein Marion Local to its sixth state football championship, a 28-21 win over Newark Catholic on Friday. Wilker scored on a 1-yard run with 21 seconds left to put the Flyers (13-2) ahead. Newark Catholic (12-3), seeking its ninth state title, incredibly drove into position to tie it but Nate Nagel broke up a potential touchdown at the goal line with no time left. “This is the toughest game I’ve ever coached,” said Tim Goodwin, whose record at the small school from western Ohio improved to 154-40. “Of all the championships, this was the hardest, without a doubt.” The Flyers repeated as champions despite losing starting tailback Jacy Goettemoeller to a leg injury on the first drive of the game and his replacement Aaron Nietfeld with a shoulder problem in the third quarter. “Losing Jacy took the wind out of our sails but the kids stayed focused, worked hard and did the job,” Goodwin added. “Hunter was a running back in junior high. We played him at wide receiver because we had other runners ahead of him. He hadn’t practiced at tailback all year but came in and didn’t miss a beat. “And what can I say about Nate? He had not played much at all and they went at him with the game on the line. He made the play. That’s not coaching. That’s character.” Chayce Croch threw two TD passes and had a 5-yard TD run for Newark Catholic. “We didn’t win but we gave every fiber that we possess,” Green Wave coach Bill Franks said. Franks was choked with emotion as he spoke of Newark Catholic’s first run to the title game since winning its eighth championship in 2007. “I love these kids,” Franks said, fighting back tears. “To get here was a wonderful ride.” Marion Local has won all six of its championships since 2000. Newark Catholic dominated in the 1980s, winning five titles and getting three runner-up finishes in that decade. “These guys are the new giants and we’re the old giants,” Franks added. “But we haven’t gone away.” Wilker scored from 6 yards 19 seconds left in the first half. Moved to running back after Nietfeld went down, Wilker picked his way through the right side for an 11-yard TD with 18 seconds left in the third quarter for a 21-14 lead. Newark Catholic tied it at 21 on a 20-yard pass from Croch to Kevin Bourne, who finished with 121 yards on seven receptions overall. Division IV - ClintonMassie 46, St. Clairsville in Div. IV CANTON — Bayle Wolf’s biggest play wasn’t one of his five touchdowns. Wolf ran for 220 yards and all those scores but his interception with 1:30 left helped preserve Clinton-Massie’s 46-36 win over St. Clairsville on Friday for the Falcons’ first state Division IV football championship. “It was huge,” Wolf said. “They had some momentum. I was just so happy. I had some green ahead of me but I just slid down so that I didn’t make a mistake and just win the game.” Wolf scored on a 9-yard run and 36-yard pass from Tyler Uetrecht in the first three minutes for the Falcons (15-0). They totaled 822 points this year, a state record for any level. “That’s just an overwhelming feat,” coach Dan McSurley said. “You don’t go into a season thinking you can do that.” St. Clairsville (14-1) rallied from a 19-0 deficit in its first title game. The Red Devils got


within 39-36 as Matt Kinnick passed for 437 yards. The senior quarterback had scoring throws of 7, 76, 9 and 46 yards to Jerrid Marhefka. “It was as we expected, a lot of emotion and both teams showed some of the fireworks that people thought would happen,” Red Devils coach Brett McLean said. “We couldn’t quite claw all the way back.” Marhefka had nine receptions and a title-game record 272 yards. Kinnick finished 21-of-39 for 437 yards, two shy of the state title game mark in the division. “We played well, got into our offense, but they are so tough to stop,” Kinnick said. “They just overwhelmed us in blocking.” Clinton-Massie totaled 408 yards on 60 carries. Wyatt Running added 101 yards, including a 6-yard touchdown. Yet it was the Falcons’ unheralded defense that came through in the fourth quarter. They held St. Clairsville to its lowest point total of the season — helped by stopping the Red Devils on four downs inside the 2. “That was the game right there, actually,” McSurley said. McLean agreed: “We needed that one more score right there and then one more stop. We were confident we could score and we put up some points. We lived on speed all season but they matched it.” Still, St. Clairsville kept moving the ball on offense, just about matching the Falcons’ potent attack. “I was on pins and needles all the time,” McSurley added. “That it came down to Bayle’s interception to win it shows how close it really was. That was the play of the game.” Division II: Toledo CC 16, Trotwood-Madison 12 MASSILLON — After rushing for 185 yards and two touchdowns, Amir Edwards wanted to talk about defense. Toledo Central Catholic won its second Division II state football championship by beating defending champion Trotwood-Madison 16-12 on Friday night on the strength of Edwards’ running and a stout defensive effort. “Staying focused on both sides of the ball was key,” Edwards said. “We knew they were good. We had to match them and we did.” The Fighting Irish (14-1) held Trotwood-Madison running back Israel Green to 56 yards on 14 carries. A year ago, Green had 326 yards and six touchdowns when the Rams won the title. Coach Greg Dempsey praised the defense, saying it “rose up. To hold (Green) back the way we did is spectacular. Trotwood-Madison made plays but our kids were in the right place every time.” The biggest was a fourthdown stop with 1:39 left in the first half. Central Catholic stopped the Rams from getting the 2 yards they needed and took over at the TrotwoodMadison 42. Edwards scored from 8 yards just five plays later for a 14-0 lead. “That one’s on me,” Rams coach Maurice Douglass said. “We should have punted,and I’ll take responsibility. We can man up and do that.” Dempsey said it was the turning point. “It was beyond huge,” he added. “You look back and that was the game.” Irish tackle Jon Perrin Jr. didn’t second-guess the Rams’ decision. “I wasn’t surprised they went for it,” added the 305pound senior. “It’s the state championship, so why not go? But we made a real big play.” Trotwood-Madison (12-3) got a pair of touchdown passes from Messiah Deweaver in the fourth quarter. He hit Ryon Lucas from 13 yards with 9:20 to play and connected with Demarcus Wilson from 24 yards with 2:38 left. Dempsey fretted about nearly blowing the lead. “I was extremely worried that I would not be allowed on the bus,” Dempsey said. “It was as nerve-racking as it could be.”

opening-round win in the Van Wert Hospital Tip-Off Tournament at Van Wert High School. Wayne Trace led 13-11 at the end of a quarter before Lincolnview took a 15-14 lead when junior point guard Kyle Williams drove and scored. Wayne Trace then went on a 19-0 run and never looked back. “We started off rough. We missed the first layup and the first quarter got out of control. But the second quarter, I think, we opened it up,” explained Wayne Trace coach Jim Linder. “We came out playing well,” said Lancer coach Brett Hammons. “We played a good quarter-anda-half and then started getting tired. They got some easy baskets. Looking at the stats, they shot around 60 percent because of all the points in transition.” The run was thanks in large part to senior Raider center Ryan Kortokrax, who scored 12 points in the second quarter - equal to Lincolnview’s total for the stanza. “I felt that our big kid was going to be an influence on the game, Kortokrax, and he was,” added Linder. Lincolnview junior center Conner McCleery drew the assignment of guarding Kortokrax and did a nice job early on - holding him to 1-of-2 from the field in the first quarter. But McCleery ran into foul trouble, allowing the Raider big man to control the paint. “It was huge. I told (Conner) that on the bench. He gets his second foul there and we’re up 15-14. From that point on it kind of spiraled out of control. It was tough because the Kortokrax kid kind of did what he wanted at that point... Our big guys battled but we’ve got to get tougher,” said Hammons. Kortokrax scored 16 points on the evening but wasn’t alone. Senior guard Dalton Sinn added 12 points, including a 2-handed dunk in the first quarter that brought the Raider faithful to their feet. Sophomore guard Corbin Linder chipped in 10 points as well. Senior point guard Grady Gudakunst scored 11 points and shot 3-6 from 3-point territory. In total, the Raiders shot 29-of53 (55%) from the field, 25-of-38 (66%) from 2-point range alone. The Lancers were led by 12 points from Williams, the only

Lincolnview player in double digits, though senior guard Nick Leeth added nine points. Efficiency-wise, the Raiders committed 13 turnovers but helped themselves out with 15 assists. “We’ll take 13 turnovers,” added Linder. The Lancers committed 13 turnovers as well to only five assists. Lincolnview shot 15-of-52 from the field overall, good for 28 percent. They were 4-of-19 from 3-point range. The Raiders outrebounded the Lancers 42-36. Nine Wayne Trace players scored and most of them while the game was still contested. “We felt, coming in, that we are at least eight or nine deep. And we were probably 10 or 11 deep tonight. Some kids stepped up and surprised us. That’s good to see,” ended Linder. Despite the loss, Hammons saw positive signs from his team: “I don’t think we ever gave up, which is a good sign. We got down pretty big and we tried to give our best effort. We could have given up and we didn’t. We’ve got things to work on, obviously, after a game like this but it’s only game one. We’ve got to continue to get better.” The Lancers open 0-1 to start the season and will take on Van Wert in the consolation game today. The Raiders improve to 1-0 and face Crestview in the championship game today.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is 6 fish per angler with a minimum size limit of 15 inches. The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler. The minimum size limit for trout and salmon is 12 inches. The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler with a 14-inch minimum size limit. Through Thanksgiving day, walleye fishing was excellent with many limits being caught, including some fish over 10 pounds. Fish were caught 1.5 miles S of “F” can of the Camp Perry firing range, between Green and Rattlesnake islands and N of Kelleys Island. Wind after Thanksgiving temporarily limited opportunities on the main lake. Trollers are using crankbaits such as Reef Runners and Rapala Deep Husky Jerks. Most walleye are caught in the fall by trolling crankbaits in open water or by fishing at night near shore and around piers. Fall yellow perch fishing can also produce some of the best catches of the season; most anglers fish around the islands or within a few miles of the ports from Huron to Conneaut. ... The water temperature is 41 degrees off of Toledo and 46 degrees off of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast. ... Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guardapproved personal flotation device while boating. ----Restoring Lake Erie Lake Trout By Kevin Kayle, Fisheries Biologist DOW initiated a bold new step to assist in the restoration and rehabilitation of lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) in Lake Erie. Starting in October, several sites in Ohio waters of Lake Erie received and will continue to receive fingerling lake trout. These are stocked annually to rebuild the population in hopes of balancing the number of top predators in the deep, cold water portions of the lake and to re-establish a self-sustaining population. Many years ago, lake trout were decimated by the sea lamprey, an invasive species which preyed heavily upon adult lake trout in particular. Work by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the Great Lakes Fishery Commission (GLFC) continues throughout the Great Lakes to reduce sea lamprey populations and allow restoration

of lake trout. The Coldwater Task Group of the GLFC’s Lake Erie Committee has completed a Lake Trout Rehabilitation Plan that outlines strategies to rebuild the population. Also, the Lake Erie Committee’s Fish Community Goals and Objectives report identifies restoration of lake trout as important to maintaining ecosystem health and quality fisheries. For the last several decades, lake trout have been stocked annually in the eastern basin near Dunkirk, New York. While survival has been variable and lake trout over 20 pounds have been captured during agency surveys and by hook-and-line anglers, natural reproduction has not been documented. Part of the plan calls for increasing stocking locations to include areas where lake trout were believed to have spawned, including Ohio waters of the western and central basins. This strategy may further promote successful natural reproduction. Lake trout typically spawn during mid-fall through early winter over gravel and cobble reefs and shoals. Other coldwater fishes like lake whitefish and ciscoes/lake herring spawn in these habitats. Lake whitefish had a surprising rebound in the 1990s and 2000s by spawning in exactly such places. Each of these coldwater fishes immediately seek colder water as spring warming occurs. Fortunately, their spawning activities would not interfere with the spawning, hatching and early development of native warm- and cool-water fishes such as walleye, yellow perch, smallmouth bass and white bass. The expansion of lake trout stocking comes as a result of surplus fish production at the USFWS Allegheny National Fish Hatchery in Pennsylvania following hatchery renovations and improvements. Approximately 120,000 surplus fingerlings, averaging 4 inches, are available this fall to be stocked in two Ohio locations: approximately 80,000 near Kelley’s Island shoals and 40,000 near small reefs between Fairport Harbor and Perry. Each of the stocked fish will have an adipose fin clip and a small coded-wire tag embedded in their snout to help biologists. The wire tags are difficult to see, so it is important that anglers catching a lake trout save and freeze the head for tag recovery, record the location where the fish was captured and contact an Ohio DOW fish biologist to arrange for pick-up on delivery of this valuable information (Sandusky 419-625-8062 or Fairport 440-352-4199). Agency survey results, angler returns of lake trout and monitoring of spawning habitat will help us evaluate these stockings and gauge the progress of fully restoring lake trout in Lake Erie.

Fourth-and-29! And everyone wonders why I pull my hair out. It seems that this year, all the close games have gone agin me — as my late Oncle Ed used to say. Case in point: I had the San Diego game wrapped up against Baltimore until the Charger defense decided — hmmm, I wonder why?!!! — to not tackle Ray Rice Sunday on a 4th-and-29 play that would have sealed the win. They finally decided to, oh yeah, tackle him and even after the referees review the play and moved the ball back a yard, he made the first down by the length of the football. Or Oklahoma needing a late touchdown to force overtime against Oklahoma State and eventually winning. You just KNOW that had I picked Oklahoma and Dave Boninsegna had picked Okie State, the Cowboys would have easily stopped it!!! Or a team with eight turnovers or a quarterback that all of a sudden can’t complete a pass, ad infinitum!!! Personally, since Dave is usually the recipient of such ridiculous largesse, I think he knows someone that knows someone that knows someone ... Now back to “reality.” Dave went 9-3 overall — 6-0 in the colleges and 3-3 in the pros (he also won the Grey Cup pick but that’s only because he had no competition!), while Guest Picker Bob Weber was 7-5 (5-1, 2-4) and I was a lowly, lowly, humiliating, humbling, egothrashing — some, like my hero, Daffy Duck, might even say mediocre! — 5-7 (2-4, 3-3). That moves the records to 80-40 (42-18, 38-22) for Dave; 66-54 (30-30, 36-24) for moi; and 49-34 (26-15, 23-19) for the GP. Bob returns for his second stint — I will crush you all!! Here are the games. College: Alabama vs. Georgia (SEC Title game); Nebraska vs. Wisconsin (Big 10 Title game); Florida State vs. Georgia Tech (ACC Title game); Texas at Kansas State (Big 12 Title game); Oklahoma at TCU; Oklahoma State at Baylor. NFL: Pittsburgh at Baltimore; Seattle at Chicago; Minnesota at Green Bay; N.Y. Giants at Washington; Philadelphia at Dallas; Tampa Bay at Denver. JIM METCALFE COLLEGE GEORGIA: This is not the Alabama team of last year. The defense is still nasty but the offense has fewer weapons due to injuries outside. The Dawgs defense may be even better — or at least equal — and the offense has a bit more firepower right now. Give UGA the upset win. NEBRASKA: Wisconsin may be under more pressure because they didn’t win their division and need to “prove” they belong. Cornhuskers are free and clear of such pressures and QB Taylor Martinez will be the key in the Big Ten title game. FLORIDA STATE: Though E.J. Manuel and the defense totally stunk it up last week against Florida and I wish FSU would be destroyed in judgement, tain’t gonna happen. They should be very, very angry at choke job last week against archrivals and Techsters get the “Benefit.” KANSAS STATE: Wildcats get a less-thanstellar Longhorn team in Manhattan. If there’s a time to get UT a little bit down, before Mack Brown gets the chance to rebuild the stockpile, this is it. Bill Snyder gets a huge Big 12 win. TCU: Oklahoma was fortunate to come away with a win in archrival game last week against Oklahoma State. Don’t know if they can play at that high an emotional level 2 weeks in a row. Pick here says not. BAYLOR: Read statement above regarding OklahomaTCU; Cowboys on the losing end of that archrival battle. Bears get the largesse this time. NFL: BALTIMORE: Big Ben likely out again and Steelers have proved their backups are not ready for prime time. The defense has been fine but they can’t do it all. It is also possible that the news that Ray Lewis may actually return to action this year has to be


950 Car Care

Kansas State: The Wildcats (EN: Yes, you have to!). Florida State: Florida State head to the field for their home finale Saturday against let me down last week but I


feel they will bounce back this weekend. If Georgia Tech can run the ball, it may be close; however, I look for the Seminoles to win and inch closer towards a BCS Bowl game. Kansas State: I’m going with the Wildcats. If QB Collin Klein plans on playing his final K-State game in a BCS bowl, then he has to bounce back more than anyone else and resemble his former Heisman Trophy candidate-self. Oklahoma: The Sooners are still alive in both the Big 12 Championship race and the race for a BCS bowl bid. Led by QB Landry Jones, the Sooners have one of the most dynamic offenses in the nation; however, they also have one of the most porous defenses around lately. Look for a high-scoring game Vegas has the Over/Under at 60.5. I’m going with the Sooners. Baylor: The Big 12, not known for its defense, will put on an offensive show with this game. This game will probably come down to whoever has the ball last. The Cowboys average 45.6 points a game, while the Bears average 44.4 points per game. Even though the Cowboys have a great running back in Joseph Randle, I’m going with the Baylor Bears. NFL: Pittsburgh vs. Baltimore - Oh boy! After last week’s comments and sleeping on the couch all week, I better go with the Ravens and get the sleeping bag ready for the garage. Sorry, Mrs. Weber, but until Big Ben gets healthy, the running backs don’t fumble 5-10 times a game and Charlie Brown Batch can throw the ball to anybody, I can’t go with your beloved Steelers (EN: I will deny this ever happened. This tape will self-destruct ...). Chicago: The Bears!!! Seattle is great at home but the Bears with Cutler back and one of the best defenses in the league, this could get ugly quick. Green Bay: The Packers got embarrassed last week against the Giants. Aaron Rogers and the Packers will bounce back in a big way this week. NY Giants: Best game of the week! Both teams are great to watch and RG III is the real deal. I’m looking at the Giants having a difficult time with this game but their defense is going to be the difference. Going with the Giants. Dallas: Dallas period. The Eagles are an embarrassment to the league! Denver: I’ve been impressed with Tampa Bay all year but Peyton is just getting better each and every week. Mile High Stadium is a hard place for any visiting team to play at and I see it rocking this weekend with another Bronco’s win and Peyton getting closer to another playoff run.

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2012 The year ahead will mark a period of many new beginnings. You’re likely to become much more daring and adventurous, as well as start to explore numerous new subjects that you never dared tackle previously. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although another’s intent might be sincere, the possibilities of his or her coming through for you might be somewhat overcome by reality. Don’t count on any outside help. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An important endeavor in which you’re involved isn’t likely to live up to your expectations if you leave any part to chance. You must be able to control every step. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t become so enamored with a new friend that you fail to keep in touch with any of your longtime pals. Share your time as equally as possible with both. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Setting some lofty goals is admirable, but don’t fall into the trap of thinking they are already completed just because you thought of them. It takes elbow grease to get things done. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You might be in for a surprise when you discover that you have a total lack of knowledge about something you thought you understood. Take immediate measures to rectify it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- When entering a joint agreement, make sure your counterpart can contribute the necessary knowledge that he or she claims to have. If the partnership is out of balance, it could fizzle. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Because you’re in a somewhat lucky cycle, you should receive your fair share of breaks. However, it you get involved with a negative person, he or she could dilute things for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Be careful you don’t commit yourself to something that is based more on hope than reality. If you can’t distinguish between the two, you’re in for a huge letdown. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Recognize the difference between getting involved with a group you’ll enjoy and one that won’t truly accept you, no matter how hard you try. Trying to win the latter over will be a lost cause and a waste of time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you decide to make a major, expensive change in your home or residence, be absolutely certain it’ll be something that you can live with for a long time. If it isn’t, you’ll end up being miserable. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Don’t make the mistake of lacking faith in your own abilities and relying solely on the advice from persons who may not be as astute as you are. Trust your instincts. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Be extra careful about both the management of your resources and of someone else’s. Chances are, handling money may not be your strong suit at this time. MONDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2012 In coming months, many friends and associates will turn out to be far more instrumental in your life than you might anticipate. This could be an exceptionally unusual year in terms of what you and your colleagues can do for each other. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- With the tremendous optimism you espouse, you should have little trouble awakening enthusiasm in others. Whatever it is you’re doing, they’ll want to be part of it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Although you may not think you require any assistance from others, they might end up helping you get what you want. Upon reflection, you’ll realize how badly you needed help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Most any group could benefit from your presence. You’ll be a great catalyst, knowing exactly what needs doing and how to effectively go about doing it. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- A special target that you’ve been striving for could turn out to be much bigger than you initially thought. Once achieved, it will have many farreaching effects. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -A friend who has been quite fortunate for you once before might be so for you again. Stick close to him or her, because this person is likely to be quite helpful. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -This could be one of those wonderful days when everything you touch generates additional income. Pay special attention to a side endeavor and/or second project. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Lady Luck is likely to be involved in many of your endeavors, but she will probably shine most on a partnership arrangement. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Focus your efforts on making as much money as you can. If you do, it’s likely that you will find a way to increase your earnings through a onetime source. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Working in close tandem with others will prove to be quite lucky for you. However, the results will be even more impressive if you call the shots instead of letting another do so. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -This can be an especially rewarding day, mostly because you’ll be able to successfully weld your inner desires to your external capabilities. Something great will come of it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Something extraordinary could occur, which would put you in an extremely happy frame of mind. Whatever it is, it will be the type of event that will be worth celebrating. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Instead of diminishing or modifying your hopes and expectations, try to elevate them to new heights. You are far luckier than you may realize, so think and act big.
