Study: People Recycle Saturday worldwide living longer but sicker
Delphos Project Recycle will be held from 9-11:30 a.m. Saturday at Delphos Truck and Fuel Wash. Entry is gained by traveling north from East Fifth Street east of Double AA Trailer Sales. Newspaper, phone books, plastic bags, cardboard, magazines and aluminum cans need to be in separate containers. The group now has a market to sell “clean rinsed metal tin cans.” If possible, please separate the metal cans from aluminum and plastic or glass items. All other items — tin cans, plastic and glass containers — need to be rinsed clean. There is no need to remove labels and they can be co-mingled. Recycle is now accepting worn U.S. flags. Delphos Recycle does not accept window or plate glass, light bulbs, ornamental glass, Pyrex or cookware glass. Computers, etc., are accepted. No TVs or monitors. By MARIA CHENG The Associated Press

Delphos teams fall in league contests, p6
LONDON — Nearly everywhere around the world, people are living longer and fewer children are dying. But increasingly, people are grappling with the diseases and disabilities of modern life, according to the most expansive global look so far at life expectancy and the biggest health threats. The last comprehensive study was in 1990 and the top health problem then was the death of children under 5 — more than 10 million each year. Since then, campaigns to vaccinate kids against diseases like polio and measles have reduced the number of children dying to about 7 million. Malnutrition was once the main health threat for children. Now, everywhere except Africa, they are much Aaron and Renee Burgei of Ottoville are the proud parents of Kendall Marie Burgei, more likely to overeat than to who was born at 12:12 a.m. on Wednesday at St. Rita’s Medical Center.

in life are taking a bigger toll, the research said. High blood pressure has become the leading health risk worldwide, followed by smoking and alcohol. “The biggest contributor to the global health burden isn’t premature (deaths), but chronic diseases, injuries, mental health conditions and all the bone and joint diseases,” said one of the study leaders, Christopher Murray, director of the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. In developed countries, such conditions now account for more than half of the health problems, fueled by an aging population. While life expectancy is climbing nearly everywhere, so too are the number of years people will live with things like vision or hearing loss and mental health issues like depression. The research appears in seven papers published online Thursday by the journal Lancet. More than 480

inquest: nurse in British royal hoax found hanging
By JiLL LAWLess the Associated Press LONDON — A nurse was found hanging in her room three days after she had been duped by a hoax call from Australian DJs about the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, a U.K. inquest was told. The case is being treated as an apparent suicide. Nurse Jacintha Saldanha was discovered hanging by a scarf from a wardrobe in her nurses’ quarters Dec. 7 by a colleague and a member of security staff at London’s King Edward VII Hospital, coroner’s officer Lynda Martindill said Thursday. Martindill said an attempt to revive Saldanha failed. Police detective chief inspector James Harman said Saldanha, 46, also had injuries to her wrists. He told the inquest at Westminster Coroner’s Court that two notes were found at the scene and another was found among Saldanha’s belongings. He said there were no suspicious circumstances, meaning nobody else was involved in Saldanha’s death. Harman said police were examining the notes, interviewing the nurse’s friends, family and colleagues and looking at emails and phone calls to establish what led to her death. He also said detectives would be contacting police in the Australian state of New South Wales to collect “relevant evidence.” Saldanha answered the phone last week when two Australian disc jockeys called seeking information about the former Kate Middleton, who was being treated for severe morning sickness. The DJs impersonated Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, and Saldanha was tricked into transferring the call to another nurse, who revealed private details about the duchess’ condition. The DJs, 2DayFM’s Mel Greig and Michael Christian, apologized for the prank in emotional interviews on Australian television, saying they never expected their call would be
For The Record
Owner of Rivera plane being investigated by DEA
By BriAn sKoLoFF the Associated Press PHOENIX — The company that owns a luxury jet that crashed and killed Mexican pop superstar Jenni Rivera is under investigation by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and the agency seized two of its planes earlier this year as part of the ongoing probe. DEA spokeswoman Lisa Webb Johnson confirmed Thursday the planes owned by Las Vegas-based Starwood Management were seized in Texas and Arizona, but she declined to discuss details of the case. The agency also has subpoenaed all the company’s records, including any correspondence it has had with a former Tijuana mayor who U.S. law enforcement officials have long suspected has ties to organized crime. The man widely believed to be behind the aviation company is an ex-convict named Christian Esquino, 50, who has a long and checkered legal past. Corporate records list his sister-in-law as the company’s only officer, but insurance companies that cover some of the firm’s planes say in court documents that the woman is merely a front and that Esquino is the one in charge. Esquino’s legal woes date back decades. He pleaded guilty to a fraud charge that stemmed from a major drug investigation in Florida in the early 1990s and most recently was sentenced to two years in federal prison in a California aviation fraud case. Esquino, a Mexican citizen, was deported upon his release. Esquino and various other companies he has either been involved with or owns have also been sued for failing to pay millions of dollars in loans, according to court records. The 43-year-old Californiaborn Rivera died at the peak of her career when the plane she was traveling in nosedived into the ground while flying from the northern Mexican city of Monterrey to the central city of Toluca early Sunday morning. She was perhaps the most successful female singer in grupero, a male-dominated Mexico regional style, and had branched out into acting and reality television. It remained unclear Thursday exactly what caused the crash and why Rivera was on Esquino’s plane. The 78-year-old pilot and five other people were also killed. Esquino was not on the plane. The late singer’s brother, Pedro Rivera Jr., said that he didn’t know anything about the owner or why or how she ended up in his plane.

Dozens sue Massachusetts pharmacy in meningitis outbreak
By Kristin M. HALL the Associated Press NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Dennis O’Brien rubs his head as he details ailments triggered by the fungal meningitis he developed after a series of steroid shots in his neck: nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, blurred vision, exhaustion and trouble with his speech and attention. He estimates the disease has cost him and his wife thousands of dollars in outof-pocket expenses and her lost wages, including time spent on 6-hour round trip weekly visits to the hospital. They’ve filed a lawsuit seeking $4 million in damages from the Massachusetts pharmacy that supplied the steroid injections, but it could take years for them to get any money back and they may never get enough to cover their expenses. The same is true for dozens of others who have sued the now-shuttered New England Compounding Center. “I don’t have a life anymore. My life is a meningitis life,” said the 59-year-old former school teacher who got the shots after having a series of neck and back surgeries, adding that he’s grateful he survived. His is one of at least 50 federal lawsuits in nine states YOUNGSTOWN (AP) — A judge has sentenced a gunman to 90 years to life in prison in a northeast Ohio fraternity house shooting that left one dead and 11 others wounded. The judge imposed the sentence Thursday on 20-year-old Jamelle Jackson
put through. The show was taken off the air and the DJs have been suspended. New South Wales state police said today that they were investigating a letter sent to the station that made several threats against the DJs. Police declined to release details of the letter. “The safety of our employees is an absolute priority,” 2DayFM’s parent company Southern Cross Austereo said in a statement. “We have sensible measures in place, as we always do, to ensure our people are safe. This is now a matter for the police, and we trust they will investigate any specific threats that emerge.” The Australian Communications and Media Authority is investigating whether radio station 2DayFM breached its broadcasting license conditions and the industry code of practice. In London, coroner Fiona Wilcox opened and adjourned Saldanha’s inquest until March 26. Wilcox expressed “my sympathies to her family and everybody who has been touched by this tragic death.” In Britain, inquests are held to determine the facts whenever someone dies unexpectedly, violently or in disputed circumstances. Inquests do not determine criminal liability or apportion blame. The local authority, Westminster Council, said Saldanha’s body was released to her family after Thursday’s hearing. Saldanha, who was born in India, lived in Bristol in southwestern England with her husband and two teenage children. Her husband, Benedict Barboza, has said she will be laid to rest in Shirva, India. The family was not in court. Lawmaker Keith Vaz, who has spoken on their behalf, said the nurse’s loved ones “need time to grieve.” Vaz said a memorial Mass would be held Saturday at London’s Roman Catholic Westminster Cathedral.

More than 500 people have gotten sick after receiving injections prepared by the pharmacy, including about 370 cases of a rare fungal form of meningitis. The lawsuits allege that NECC negligently produced a defective and dangerous product and seek millions to repay families for the death of spouses, physically painful recoveries, lost wages and mental and emotional suffering. Thirty-seven people have died in the outbreak. “The truth is the chance of recovering damages from NECC is extremely low,” said John Day, a Nashville attorney who represents several patients who have been sickened by fungal meningitis.

discovery phases for all of the federal lawsuits. This approach, called multidistrict litigation, would prevent inconsistent pretrial rulings and conserve resources of all parties. But unlike a class-action case, those lawsuits would eventually be returned to judges in their original district for trial, according to Brian Fitzpatrick, a law professor at Vanderbilt University Law School in Nashville. Even with this approach, Fitzpatrick noted that federal litigation is very slow, and gathering all the evidence, records and depositions during the discovery phase could take months or years. “Most of the time what happens is once they are consolidated for pretrial proceedings, there is a settlement, a global settlement between all the lawyers and the defendants before anything is shipped back for trial,” he said. A lawyer representing NECC, Frederick H. Fern, described the consolidation process as an important step. “A Boston venue is probably the best scenario,” Fern said in an email. “That’s By the Associated Press where the parties, witnesses Today is Friday, Dec. 14, and documents are located, the 349th day of 2012.

He disputed reports that he owns Starwood, maintaining that he is merely the company’s operations manager “with the expertise.” Esquino is no stranger to tangles with the law. He was indicted in the early 1990s along with 12 other defendants in a major federal drug investigation that claimed the suspects planned to sell more than 480 kilograms of cocaine, according to court records. He eventually pleaded guilty to conspiring to conceal money from the IRS and was sentenced to five years in prison, but much of the term was suspended for reasons that weren’t immediately clear. He served about five months in prison before being released. Cynthia Hawkins, a former assistant U.S. attorney who handled the case and is now in private practice in Orlando, remembered the investigation well. “It was huge,” Hawkins said Thursday. “This was an international smuggling group.” She said the case began with the arrest of Robert Castoro, who was at the time considered one of the most prolific smugglers of marijuana and cocaine into Florida from direct ties to Colombian drug cartels in the 1980s. Castoro was convicted in 1988 and sentenced to life in prison, but he then began cooperating with authorities, leading to his sentence being reduced to just 10 years, Hawkins said. He eventually gave up another smuggler, Damian Tedone, who was indicted in the early 1990s along with Esquino and 11 others in a conspiracy involving drug smuggling in Florida in the 1980s at a time when the state was the epicenter of the nation’s cocaine trade. Tedone also cooperated with authorities and has since been released from prison. Telephone messages left Thursday for both Tedone and Castoro were not returned.

ELYRIA (AP) — Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers say they found 30 pounds of home-grown marijuana concealed as wrapped Christmas presents during a traffic stop. The patrol said a drugsniffing dog alerted troopers to the pot during the stop Thursday morning in Lorain County, west of Cleveland. They had stopped a BMW SUV on the Ohio Turnpike for failing to drive in marked lanes. The patrol said the hydroponic marijuana is worth about $192,000. Troopers arrested the driver, a 33-year-old man from Madison, Wis. Troopers boasted an even bigger pot bust on the turnpike Thursday: They seized 353 pounds worth about $1.6 million during a traffic stop in Erie County in northwest Ohio. But the patrol said that pot was in duffel bags, not Christmas presents.

Ohio students charged after ‘hit list’ found
KENTON (AP) — Three Ohio middle-school girls are facing juvenile court charges of inducing panic after they were accused of compiling a “hit list” at school. The Lima News reports there was no evidence the girls planned anything specific at their middle school in Kenton. Police Chief John Vermillion said it was probably a joke, but authorities have to take such matters seriously because of shootings and other incidents at schools across the country. The “hit list” with names of at least 15 students and teachers on it, was found in a school hallway in September. One of the girls was suspended afterward. Two of the three girls entered the equivalent of not-guilty pleas Thursday. The other failed to get an attorney in time for the court hearing.

“You can close your eyes to reality but not to memories.” — Stanislaw J. Lec, Polish author (1909-1966)
‘Cliff’ crash may clear way for deal in January
By CHARLES BABINGTON The Associated Press WASHINGTON — To get to “yes” on a “fiscal cliff” accord, Congress and the White House first might have to get to “no.” That is, an impasse that sends them over the cliff by missing their Dec. 31 deadline to pass a major deficitreduction plan. Such a breach would immediately change the political dynamics, making it easier for many lawmakers — especially Republicans — to agree to a second-chance compromise in the new year. This scenario strikes a good number of Washington insiders as irresponsible and improbable — who knows how the markets will react? But others argue it will be easier to round up the congressional votes needed for a big compromise if the deadline passes and lawmakers rush back to Washington next month under a starkly new political reality. The new landscape would allow President Barack Obama to face his liberal base — and, more importantly, let House Republicans face their conservative constituents — and say in essence: “See, I did the best I possibly could, and it didn’t work. The other side didn’t blink. Now everyone’s taxes have gone up, and it’s time for compromise.” So long as there is even a day left to negotiate, some hard-liners in both parties will demand that their leaders hold fast. Having the Dec. 31 deadline expire would finally show there’s no more time to negotiate. A number of lawmakers in both parties say the fiscal cliff could actually become a gentle slope, with the economic impact quickly mitigated under circumstances easier for Republicans to swallow. Here’s why Kingston and others think a deadline breach might make it easier to reach a bipartisan compromise in early 2013: First, income tax rates on virtually every American will have risen automatically, starting Jan. 1. Other levies, including a payroll tax and estate taxes, also would rise. And large spending cuts would start affecting the military and many other government programs. The political debate has focused on income tax rates, which most congressional Republicans have vowed never to raise. Obama campaigned on a pledge to raise those rates on the wealthiest Americans. He won the election, of course, and new polls show most Americans support his view. GOP lawmakers face a dif-
One Year Ago • Sixteen children in Putnam County will have a bigger Christmas this year thanks to the students and staff at Fort Jennings High School. Recently, the 185 students in grades 7-12 stalled classes by dumping pennies on the teachers’ desks. The teachers had to count the pennies before beginning class. Overall, students contributed 238,800 pennies to purchase Christmas gifts for the “adopted” children. 25 Years Ago — 1987 • St. John’s outscored Celina 16-10 Saturday in the final 5:43 of a game begun Dec. 4 to beat the Bulldogs 63-55. The game was stopped Dec. 4 because of moisture on the floor at Celina and rescheduled for Saturday. Mike Williams scored eight points Saturday to lead the Jays and finished the game with 14. The game’s leading scorer was St. John’s Doug Etgen with 17. • Sharyl Odenweller, of Delphos Community Christmas Project, accepted dolls from Alice Perry and Isabell Foust. The dolls were donated to the project by Joan Kiesweiter, owner of Unique Craft and Flower Center Shop. Members of Delphos Senior Citizens Center made dresses for the dolls. The dolls will go to needy children. • The Fort Jennings Musketeers got back on the road to victory as they forged past Spencerville 70-59. A steady-paced first quarter saw both teams put through 17 points. The second eight minutes put Fort Jennings up by seven. Both teams jumped to quick scoring in the third quarter but the Musketeers maintained a 54-44 advantage. Then Spencerville began to rally but it wasn’t quite enough as the Musketters hit crucial free throws that clinched the 70-59 victory. 50 Years Ago — 1962 • Rev. Kevin H. Ricker, son of Mr. and Mrs. Hubert J. Ricker, will be ordained to the Catholic priesthood for the Diocese of Toledo on Dec. 18 in St. Ignatius Church in Rome, Italy. Rev. Ricker received his elementary schooling at Delphos St. John’s and attended St. Meinrad’s Seminary before being sent to Rome for philosophy and theology at Gregorian University. He will remain in Rome until July 1963 to finish his studies and upon his return to Delphos will celebrate a solemn high Mass of Thanksgiving in St. John’s Church. • Tickets are now available for the Phi Delta Sorority annual charity ball which will be held Dec. 29 at the Knights of Columbus club rooms of Elida Avenue. Dancing will be from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. with Freddie Ross and his orchestra providing the music. Funds derived from the dance are used by the sorority for its civic project of purchasing shoes and boots for school age children of needy Delphos families. • Membership in the Delphos Chamber of Commerce is at its highest in recent years, it was announced by William B. Gladen, executive secretary of the chamber. The addition of 14 new members brings the membership total to 94, Gladen said. The chamber is the principal sponsor of a number of sales promotions, including Dollar Days, Hospitality Days, Old Fashioned Bargain Days and the Christmas Shopping promotion which brings Santa Claus to Delphos for several appearances. 75 Years Ago — 1937 • An announcement was made by Delphos city officials Tuesday morning of the appointment of Amandus Lang, East Second Street, as a regular city patrolman. He takes the place left vacant on the force by the retirement on pension of the veteran patrolman, T. B. Wagoner. Lang has served temporarily on the force on a number of occasions and when Wagoner retired on July 1, he was appointed as temporary patrolman until such time as a regular patrolman could be named. • The Delphos Band Parents Association played Santa Claus to the Jefferson High School Band Monday night and purchased a Bell Lyre. The lyre is an instrument which can be played in orchestra work and marching band work. The school officials and members of the band are grateful to the Band Parents for the gift. • Maida Moorman entertained members of the Dubonnet Club at her home on West Climb Street Monday evening. In addition to the club members, Mrs. Archie Miller and Betty Linder were present. At the conclusion of the pinochle games, Mrs. Roland Brenneman held high score and Mrs. Roman Hummer, second.
IT WAS NEWS THEN
Pentagon warns of higher bomb threat in drawdown
By DONNA CASSATA The Associated Press WASHINGTON — American and coalition forces in Afghanistan will be more vulnerable to deadly improvised explosive devices as the military draws down troops next year, a senior Pentagon official said Thursday. Lt. Gen. Michael Barbero described his concerns about what is the top cause of military and civilian deaths in Afghanistan and Pakistan in congressional testimony that also underscored U.S. frustration with Islamabad’s efforts to thwart the production of the devices known as IEDs, most of which are fertilizer-based explosives. IEDs are responsible for more than 60 percent of U.S. troops killed and wounded in Afghanistan as the war has entered its second decade. Although the number of incidents is down this year, IEDs caused 1,874 American casualties. Barbero told a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee that the drawdown of some 66,000 U.S. troops next year will make American forces more susceptible to IEDs. He said fewer troops will mean travel on Afghan roads becomes more predictable, raising the possibility of more attacks. In addition, fewer troops will mean less awareness of what’s happening in the vicinity. “IEDs will continue to be the weapon of choice against our forces,” Barbero told the panel. Barbero, the director of the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization, and Jonathan Carpenter, a senior economic adviser at the State Department, insisted that Pakistan, which has had more than 926 IED attacks and more than 3,700 casualties, needs to do more to stop the devices. About 70 percent of the homemade explosives are made with ammonium nitrate from calcium ammonium nitrate, known as CAN. The common agricultural fertilizer is produced by two factories in Pakistan. Barbero said the Fatima Group, which owns and operates the two factories, has not been cooperative. Further complicating the situation, the Pakistan government stopped all direct communication between the United States and the company. He said any contact must go through one of the Pakistan ministries. Carpenter said the U.S. was constrained by the closing of supply lines that didn’t reopen until July of this year. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., chairman of the subcommittee, said Pakistan is vital to stopping key components from making their way into Afghanistan. “I see too many casualties at Walter Reed,” Casey said of the military hospital. “We need to see action.” The officials pointed out that Treasury has imposed sanctions and the Commerce Department has added 150 names to the list of entities barred from doing business with the United States.
US holiday sales slowly pick up after Sandy
The Associated Press WASHINGTON — U.S. consumers shook off Superstorm Sandy last month and stepped up holiday shopping, helped by a steady job market and lower gas prices. Retail sales rose 0.3 percent in November from October, reversing the previous month’s decline. Sales increased mostly because Americans spent more online, bought more electronics and began to replace cars and rebuild after the storm. And a sharp drop in gas prices lowered the overall increase. Excluding gas stations, retail sales rose a solid 0.8 percent, according to the Commerce Department report released Thursday. Still, department store sales tumbled. And consumer confidence has slipped in recent weeks, which has raised concerns that some Americans may be growing worried about looming tax increases. That could dampen December sales. Many retailers depend on the two months of holiday shopping for roughly 40 percent of their annual revenue. High unemployment and weak wage growth have kept consumers cautious about spending, which accounts for 70 percent of economBy DONNA CASSATA The Associated Press ic growth. Most economists expect just slim gains in consumer spending in the final three months of the year, which should keep growth weak. “Despite the positive numbers today ... we are not in a consumer-led recovery,” said Chris Christopher, an economist at IHS Global Insight. A Labor Department report suggested the job market is improving, which could set the stage for more spending next year. Applications for unemployment benefits, which are a proxy for layoffs, fell by 29,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 343,000. That’s the second-lowest total this year. The drop indicates companies are cutting fewer jobs and not yet panicking about the “fiscal cliff.” That’s the combination of tax increases and spending cuts set to take effect next month if President Barack Obama and Republican lawmakers fail to reach a budget deal before then. Consumers are also seeing relief at the gas pump, which leaves them more disposable income. Gas prices have fallen almost 50 cents over the past two months, to a nationwide average of $3.30 a gallon, according to AAA.
ficult choice. To pass any bill that Obama seems likely to sign, they must break their pledge by agreeing to raise tax rates on high incomes — such as those above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples. If they refuse, and Obama doesn’t back down, the government goes over the cliff, and everyone’s taxes rise. While negotiations on spending cuts might be difficult, Obama and his fellow Democrats presumably would offer Republicans the same taxrate deal as before: They’d push a bill that removes the new tax hike on about 98 percent of Americans — couples making below $250,000 —while leaving the new increase on the richest 2 percent. Suddenly, Republicans would be able to vote to cut taxes on the vast majority of Americans. And they would not have to raise taxes on anyone because the new, higher rate on the wealthy would already be the law. Much has been written about how this scenario would strengthen Obama’s negotiating hand. Less remarked upon, however, is the likelihood that the same scenario would let scores of Republican lawmakers off the political hook. They could honestly tell their constituents they never voted to raise tax rates on anyone.
Kerry, Hagel front-runners to lead State, Defense
WASHINGTON — Democratic Sen. John Kerry, who unsuccessfully sought the presidency in 2004 and has pined for the job of top diplomat, vaulted to the head of President Barack Obama’s short list of secretary of state candidates after U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice suddenly withdrew from consideration to avoid a contentious confirmation fight with emboldened Republicans. The exit of Rice and elevation of Kerry shook up Washington on Thursday and was coupled with the potential for even bolder second-term changes in Obama’s national security team next month. Chuck Hagel, a former Republican senator from Nebraska, emerged as the front-runner to serve as defense secretary. The possible selection of Kerry and Hagel would put two decorated Vietnam War veterans — one Navy, the other Army — at State and the Pentagon. Official word on replacements for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta in an Obama Cabinet remake could come as early as next week. The choice of Kerry would open a Massachusetts Senate seat, boosting the prospects for recently defeated Republican Sen. Scott Brown to win back a job in Washington. Kerry, a senator for nearly three decades and the current Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, has won praise from his Senate Democratic and Republican colleagues and should be confirmed easily, if nominated. He has been Obama’s envoy to hot spots such as Afghanistan and Pakistan, the administration’s point man in 2010 on a nuclear arms reduction treaty with Russia and was a stand-in for Republican Mitt Romney during Obama’s debate preparation. Hagel was a senior member of the Foreign Relations Committee during his years in the Senate. He and Obama became close while they served in the Senate and traveled overseas together. Hagel has irked some in the GOP with his complaints that the party has moved too far to the right and for his endorsements of Democrats, most recently Bob Kerrey in last month’s Nebraska Senate race. “He’s a combat vet who was wounded twice and under-
And a third report suggested those declines will likely continue. Wholesale gas prices fell 10.1 percent in November, the Labor Department said. That’s the most in more than three years. It pushed down a measure of wholesale prices 0.8 percent, the most since May. “Falling gasoline prices are hurting sales at the pump, but helping many Americans spend at the mall,” Christopher said. Economists saw mixed signals for the holiday shopping season in the latest retail sales data. Online and catalog shopping surged 3 percent, the biggest gain in 13 months. But department store sales fell 0.8 percent. And Americans spent less at stores like Wal-Mart and Target. And a survey last week found Americans’ confidence is weakening. Many are starting to worry about the fiscal cliff. Economists say that if those tax increases and spending cuts are not averted, the economy would slip into recession. “With consumer confidence now falling, hopes that retailers would enjoy a robust holiday shopping season are fading,” Paul Dales, an economist at Capital Economics, said. stands that the decisions we make here are carried out by our young men and women” in the military, said Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., a member of the Armed Services Committee. It would be highly unusual for Hagel’s political moves to sink his nomination, even in bitterly divided Washington. But Democrats blamed politics for Rice’s demise as a possible candidate. They clearly insinuated that Republicans who failed to get any traction in using the deadly September attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, to derail Obama’s re-election bid instead took down Rice. She “deserved far more respect than she was shown by certain Senate Republicans,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said in a blistering statement late Thursday. “Their behavior was a disgrace to the Senate’s tradition of bipartisan cooperation on national security issues and beneath the stature of senators with otherwise distinguished records on national security. “I hope that moving forward, senators will act based on fact-finding and serving the public interest, not advancing partisan political agendas or settling old scores,” Reid said.

Lady Indians pull away Knights use defense to defeat Wildcats from Jays in MAC
By JIM METCALFE
FORT RECOVERY — Fort Recovery took command of its girls Midwest Athletic Conference basketball clash versus St. John’s Thursday night at Fort Site Fieldhouse and took complete control with a dominant third period en route to a 62-35 triumph over the Lady Blue Jays. “We didn’t answer the bell the second half. When Fort Recovery stepped it up physically, we didn’t match it,” St. John’s mentor Dan J. Grothouse noted. “We played soft when we need to play physically; when you hit the road in the MAC, you had better be ready to do so or you get it handed to you, like we did tonight. They beat us down the floor a number of times and either we didn’t get back or we didn’t match up well and gave them easy shots.” Fort Recovery head man Doug Bihn felt his team got back to their style. “We were disappointed in Saturday’s game where we didn’t get the pace we wanted. We prefer to get up and down the floor,” Bihn explained. “We talked all week about pushing the tempo every chance we could and we just kept playing tonight. I felt we wore on them some as the game wore on.” St. John’s (3-3, 1-1 MAC) and Fort Recovery (5-1, 2-0) battled even in the first period. The difference was the Lady Indians shot better: 5-of-14 in the period (24-of-43 for the game, 4-of-10 downtown, for 55.8%) versus 3-of-11 (12of-42 fielders, 2-of-10 3s, for 28.6%). The Tribe held a 12-7 edge on a 3-ball from Tori Lennartz (15 points, 8 boards, 3 blocks) at the 25-second mark before senior Jessica Recker (5 dimes, 6 points) hit a pair of tosses with 10.1 ticks on the board to get within 12-9. The Indians began to slowly take a semblance of control in the second canto, with Sierra Pugh (11 markers, 7 assists) scoring eight points in the stanza, even with Grothouse calling two timeouts. Recovery put together a 10-5 span in the final 1:56, including a free toss by Pugh with 5.4 ticks remaining, for a 31-22 edge. “We didn’t play badly the first half. We had chances to either be closer, if not have the lead,” Grothouse added. “We missed a couple of wide open layups and we missed some free throws. They just took it to us the third period and we didn’t respond. That’s a fine Fort Recovery team and we didn’t match their level of play.” The hosts really took over in the third with their tough man-to-man defense that did a good job of denyLate shot lifts Pirates over Lancers By BRIAN BASSETT DHI Correspondent email@example.com MIDDLE POINT - One shot. That is what the Northwest Conference matchup between the Lincolnview Lady Lancers and visiting Bluffton came down to Thursday night. With the game tied at 47 and 3.8 seconds showing on the clock, Bluffton had the ball on its own side of the court with a chance to win the game. And they did just that when junior guard Sarah Schriner inbounded the ball, got it back and fired a 3-pointer to give the Lady Pirates a 50-47 buzzer-beating victory. “I thought we defended it well,” Lincolnview coach Dan Williamson described. “She just made the shot. We’ll kind of tip our cap to her on that one but I thought we defended that pretty well.” Bluffton coach Eric Garmatter explained that the Lady Pirates made a last-min-
ing ball reversals. Lennartz and Kelsey Fiely (14 points) dropped in six each as the Tribe canned 8-of-12 shots. That was helped by forcing the Jays into 2-of-10 shooting and then getting into a transition game. When Fiely slashed to the basket with 40 ticks left, the hosts led 49-27. The closest the Jays could get in the fourth was 21 three times and the hosts led by as much as 27, the final score, as the benches emptied for both coaches. St. John’s finished at 9-of16 from the free-throw line (56.3%); with 21 caroms (9 offensive) as Katie Vorst had eight to go with her team-high 11 points; 11 turnovers; and 11 fouls. Freshman Sydney Fischbach added seven counters. They visit Shawnee 6 p.m. (junior varsity start) Monday. Fort Recovery ended up 10-of-12 at the line (83.3%); with 30 caroms (6 offensive); 11 errors; and 15 fouls. They host Jay County 6 p.m. Saturday. “St. John’s is wellcoached and very disciplined; you know they are going to make a run. Our goal was to answer theirs with one of our own and we did that; we also didn’t really let them get going,” Bihn added. In JV action, the Indians’ Kelsey Evers hit two free throws with 5.5 ticks left and the Jays turned it over before they could get a shot off as the Indians emerged with a 25-24 win. Kendra Siefring, Kristen Jutte and Haley Knapke had six each for the hosts. Sophomore Halkey Benavidez and freshman Rachel Pohlman paced the Jays (3-3, 1-1) with seven each.

Sean LaFontaine DHI Correspondent email@example.com DELPHOS – The Crestview Lady Knights traveled to Delphos Thursday night to take on the Jefferson Lady Wildcats in Northwest Conference girls basketball action. After a closely-played first half, the Lady Knights hit some big threes and used pressure defense to pull away in the second half for the 47-32 victory. Mackenzie Riggenbach started the scoring with a long two for the Lady Knights. Rileigh Stockwell then hit a free throw, followed by a short jump shot, giving the Lady Wildcats the early 3-2 lead. Riggenbach hit a three on the next possession for Crestview but Hannah Sensibaugh answered with a bucket to tie the game at 5-5. Jefferson scored the next seven points of the game on two buckets by Stockwell and a three by Katie Goergens. The Lady Knights got two free throws by Riggenbach, giving her all seven of the team’s first-quarter points, before the end of the first quarter, leaving the score 12-7 in favor of Jefferson. Crestview pulled within two in the beginning of the second quarter but the Lady Wildcats again went on a run to put some distance between the two teams. A free throw by Stockwell and baskets by Gabby Pimpas and Brooke Culp put the Lady Wildcats up 17-10. Crestview managed to close the gap towards the end of the quarter but Delphos entered the locker rooms with a 19-14 lead. The Lady Knights took the court in the second half on a mission and outscored their

halves. “In the first half, we came out and played defense like we knew we had to,” Hoffman said. “Defensively, we kept them in front of us and made them work for everything; we also got to the basket offensively. In the second half, we didn’t get the job done. When the pressure turned up, we made some bad decisions, which got the snowball rolling. They are a good team and you can’t take away scoring opportunities from yourself like we did in the second half.” Long-time Crestview coach Greg Rickard agreed, though it was the opposite of Hoffman. “The first half, we came out flat and had no intensity,” Rickard said. “Against a team like Jefferson on the road, you cannot do that. We gave them a lot of second shots — we weren’t boxing out — and giving up penetration. In the third quarter, we got more intense, took care of the ball, played tougher defense and we were able to go on a few big runs.” With the loss, the Lady Wildcats fall to 3-3 on the season and 1-1 in the NWC. They host New Bremen 1 p.m. (junior varsity start time) Saturday. Crestview visits Fort Jennings 6 p.m. Monday.

ute adjustment on the play: “(The girls) deviated on the play because Lincolnview didn’t guard the in-bounds pass. As soon as I saw that, I just yelled for (junior forward) Paige (Buroker) to throw it back.” Buroker, who had nine points and 10 rebounds at the time, was originally supposed to take the shot, according to Garmatter: “The play was designed to go inside to Paige and I think that is what they were defending. As soon as I saw them pretty much doubling her, (I decided) I’ll take my chances with Sarah shooting it.” The shot was the culmination of a hard-fought game by both teams. Bluffton hit the ground running to open the game, jumping out to a 10-2 lead with the help of four points from senior guard Anna Crips - who was lost for the game at the 3:12 mark of the first with a gash above her eye. The Lady Lancers lost a starter as well during the run as senior post Kaitlyn Brant exited in foul trouble.
Five points from sophomore guard Julia Thatcher helped bring Lincolnview back in the game. They tied it at 12 on a Julia Thatcher free throw and took the lead on a trey from senior guard Claire Dye to end the quarter with a 15-12 lead. “That was big,” Williamson said of the first-quarter comeback. “I think we came out a little bit flat tonight. Bluffton came out with a lot of intensity and made some shots early. That gave them confidence for the rest of the game. And losing Kaitlyn, our biggest player, that’s not a good combination for us.” Despite losing Brant for the half, Claire Dye hit a pair of threes and totaled eight points in the second quarter to pace the Lady Lancers to a 29-25 halftime lead. “(Williamson) has got a really good player,” said Garmatter of Dye. “I saw her last Tuesday against Perry. I saw enough in the first half with her nailing threes, so we went to the box-and-1. We took our chances trying to play 4-on-4 with the other
four.” The adjustment worked and Dye didn’t score in the second half, finishing with 11 points. Poor shooting (2-of-12) in the third quarter let the Lady Pirates come back, especially with the help of Buroker, whose seven thirdquarter points equalled the Lady Lancers’ total. Bluffton led 40-36 entering the final frame but Lincolnview fought back. Despite missing their first three shots to open the fourth quarter, the Lady Lancers got single free throws from sophomore guard Hannah McCleery and Brant to pull within two. Lincolnview tied it at 40 with a layup from senior guard Kaylee Thatcher. Bluffton got a 3-point play from junior post Bailey Prichard to go up by three but Julia Thatcher answered with a three to tie the game again. Lincolnview later took a 47-45 lead on a Julia Thatcher basket but Bluffton answered on a basket from senior guard Sierra Amstutz with a minute left. Lincolnview chose to
slow the game down and take the last shot but the Bluffton defense forced the most important of the Lady Lancers’ 11 turnovers on the night, getting the ball back with 8.3 seconds to play and the game tied at 47. Garmatter called a timeout and Bluffton brought the ball across the timeline before taking the final timeout with 3.8 seconds left, allowing Schriner to end the game with her three. Despite the loss, Williamson was happy with the fight his team demonstrated: “Credit our kids. They fought back and they didn’t give up. We had the lead several times in the first half and the second half as well... We knew that every conference game was going to be a battle and this was no different.” The Lincolnview coach pointed to the rebounding edge, which Bluffton held 30-17. The Lady Lancer defense countered that, however, by forcing 21 turnovers, while Lincolnview only committed 11. Both teams shot the ball
relatively evenly, with the Lady Lancers holding a small edge 39 percent (17-of-44) to 36 percent (16-of-45). The Lady Pirates were 13-of-16 from the charity stripe, while Lincolnview shot 8-of-11. Julia Thatcher led the home team with 12 points. Claire Dye had 11, with Katie Dye adding 10 points, five rebounds and five assists. Schriner had 16 points to lead the Lady Pirates. Amstutz was close behind with 13 points and seven boards. Lincolnview falls to 4-1 on the season (1-1 NWC) and hosts Wayne Trace 6 p.m. Monday. Bluffton improves to 4-2, 1-0 in NWC play.

Bengals beat Eagles 34-13
By DAN GELSTON The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — So long, Eagles. Up ahead for the Cincinnati Bengals, the only Pennsylvania team that truly matters. Andy Dalton threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score, an opportunistic defense forced five turnovers and Cincinnati beat the Philadelphia Eagles 34-13 on Thursday night. The Bengals (8-6) took a half-game lead over the Steelers for the last playoff spot in the AFC. But their game at Pittsburgh next week is far more important in the standings than this one. The Bengals would clinch their second straight playoff berth with a win over the Steelers if Pittsburgh loses at Dallas this Sunday. A loss to the Steelers, though, likely would ruin Cincinnati’s chances because it would lose the tie-breaker. “We control what we can control,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “We want to win in December, so we have a chance to win in January.” Can they beat the Steelers? Probably not if they play like they did for most of their 60 minutes at Lincoln Financial Field. They committed 10 of their 11 penalties through the first three quarters. Dalton was By BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press sacked six times by one of the worst lines in the league. Dalton was an unimpressive 13-of-27 for 127 yards and a touchdown. No receiver had more than 63 yards. Funny how a playoff push can make those stats meaningless as long as the Bengals win. “We’re playing for something now,” Dalton said. “That’s great and that’s what makes it fun this time of year.” The Eagles’ season was lost a long time ago. They fell to 4-10, losing double-digit games for the first time since 2005, the year after losing the Super Bowl to New England. There were plenty of empty seats at the Linc, where fans are hoping this is Andy Reid’s final season as coach. Reid led the Eagles to nine playoff appearances, six division titles and five NFC championship games in his first 13 years. But the Eagles will miss the playoffs for the second straight year and owner Jeffrey Lurie already said 8-8 would be “unacceptable.” “I thought the effort was there and guys played hard,” Reid said, “but you just can’t have those turnovers. That’s a problem.” An interception by Leon Hall set up Dalton’s goahead 11-yard TD run in the third quarter. Then Wallace Gilberry picked up Bryce Brown’s fumble and ran it back 25 yards for another score and an 11-point lead. BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 106 yards, including a 1-yard TD run in the first quarter for Cincinnati. Dalton tossed a 5-yard scoring pass to A.J. Green in the fourth to cap a 24-point outburst in a span of 3:23. The Eagles committed three turnovers on three straight possessions at one point and then fumbled a kickoff when defensive lineman Cedric Thornton let the ball fall through his hands on a short kick. After beating Tampa Bay on a last-second TD last week to snap an 8-game losing streak, the Eagles tried to make it two in a row. Turnovers got in their way again. They’ve committed an NFL-high 34 and forced just 12 all season. The Eagles snapped a drought of 22 quarters without a turnover by recovering two fumbles in the second. Both led to field goals by Alex Henery, helping Philadelphia to a 13-10 halftime lead. Rookie Nick Foles made his fifth straight start for Michael Vick, who just returned to practice this week after sustaining a concussion on Nov. 11. Foles threw for 182 yards, one TD and one interception. Reid added Foles is still the starter. Down 13-10, the Bengals started their rally with a turnover. Hall intercepted Foles’ deep pass and returned it 44 yards to the Eagles 40. Foles underthrew Jeremy Maclin, who was a few steps behind Hall. Green made an acrobatic catch for an 11-yard gain on third-and-9 a few plays before Dalton ran for the score to put the Bengals up 17-13. Foles, who threw for 381 yards to lead that comeback against the Bucs, hit Riley Cooper on an 11-yard TD pass to cut it to 10-7. Foles connected with Maclin on a 46-yard pass during the drive. The Eagles then forced their first turnover since Nov. 5 against New Orleans. Brandon Graham sacked Dalton, the ball popped loose and Trent Cole recovered at the Bengals’ 29. Just two plays in, Maclin fumbled after a 6-yard catch. Carlos Dunlap recovered and the Bengals started at the Eagles 44. Green-Ellis ran 29 yards on first down and scored a few plays later for a 7-0 lead. It got uglier for Philadelphia on the next possession. Mat McBriar punted into his own blocker, Daniel Herron picked it up and ran 3 yards to the Eagles 11. But Graham sacked Dalton and Cincinnati settled for Brown’s 24-yard field goal that made it 10-0. The Bengals would get their act together and put a playoff berth in sight. ballooned to 58-32. It was 68-49 at the break but the Knicks lost some of their flow when Anthony went to the locker room with 6:41 left in the third quarter and a 17-point lead. He had landed awkwardly after being fouled by Howard on a drive to the basket; though he was able to stay in to shoot the free throws, Anthony was removed at the next whistle. D’Antoni was booed loudly during pregame introductions, Knicks’ fans who appreciated the rugged defensive teams of the 1990s never truly embracing his offensefirst style.
HAWKS 113, BOBCATS 90 ATLANTA — Devin Harris scored 20 points, Josh Smith added 18 and the surging Atlanta Hawks handed Charlotte its 10th straight defeat. The Hawks are 12-3 since losing three of their first five games this season. Atlanta has won two straight and five out of six. Gerald Henderson had 17 points and Ramon Sessions 16 for the Bobcats. Lou Williams had eight of his nine assists in the first half for Atlanta. Williams, who finished with 13 points, matched his career high in assists; Ivan Johnson added a season-high 16 points. TRAIL BLAZERS 98, SPURS 90 PORTLAND, Ore. — Rookie guard Damian Lillard had a career-high 29 points and Portland handed San Antonio its second consecutive loss. The Spurs, who have dropped only six games this season, trailed by as many as 12 in the second half but Manu Ginobili’s layup cut the deficit to 89-85. J.J. Hickson answered for the Blazers with a running hook that made it 91-85 with 2:36 left. Danny Green hit a 3-pointer to pull the Spurs closer again but Portland clung to the lead and Nicolas Batum — who has been bothered by a sore back — made a 3 that gave Portland a 96-90 advantage with 1:08 left. Batum hit two free throws with 8 seconds to go for the final margin.

Anthony scores 30 as Knicks beat slumping Lakers
I wanted to beat the Lakers, especially protecting our home court,” Anthony said. “It had nothing to do with Mike. I wanted to protect our home court and win the basketball game.” Meanwhile, things are starting as poorly for D’Antoni in Los Angeles as they ended for him in New York. The Lakers, still without Steve Nash and Pau Gasol, were never really in the game while losing their fourth straight and falling to 9-14. Nash has started running and the Lakers know things will get better once he’s back but that doesn’t help right now. Raymond Felton scored 19 points and Tyson Chandler and J.R. Smith added 18 apiece for the Knicks. Bryant had 31 points and 10 rebounds for the Lakers. Metta World Peace finished with 23 points and Dwight Howard had 20. The Lakers did cut what was a 26-point deficit to 113-107 when World Peace converted a 3-point play with 1:27 remaining but the Knicks took more than a minute off the clock while twice grabbing offensive rebounds on the next possession before Chandler made a free throw with 18 seconds to play. Anthony, playing at an MVP level after he struggled last season under D’Antoni, made his first three 3-pointers, nearly reaching his NBAleading average of 9.7 points per first quarter before 2 1/2 minutes were even gone. Bryant tried to keep pace but the Knicks couldn’t be stopped, making 17-of-23 shots (74 percent) and building a 41-27 advantage. Anthony finished two shy of the franchise record for points in a quarter, held by Willis Reed and Allan Houston. And he was easily on pace to pass Bryant’s building record of 61 points, though he didn’t even get halfway there after playing just 5 minutes in the second half. Anthony added his ankle felt sore and didn’t know if he would be available Saturday against Cleveland. When it was over, D’Antoni shook hands with Mike Woodson, who replaced him on the New York bench, and a couple of Knicks players before walking off after another rocky night with the Lakers. He’s often been considered an offensive genius whose teams are poor defensively but right now the Lakers don’t really look good on either end. The Knicks made 22 of their first 30 shots overall and started 8-of-10 behind the arc. Even when the Lakers tried to defend, it didn’t work. Howard batted the ball away from Rasheed Wallace in the post, so Wallace simply retrieved it in the corner, buried a 3-pointer and the lead

NEW YORK — The pregame boos had barely finished and Mike D’Antoni suddenly had much bigger problems. Carmelo Anthony had three 3-pointers in less than three minutes and a look in his eye that he couldn’t be stopped. “He has those games where he does that,” D’Antoni said. “And when he does that, the Knicks are awfully tough to beat, obviously.” Especially for a team struggling like D’Antoni’s Lakers. Anthony scored 22 of his 30 points in the first quarter and the New York Knicks held on after he departed with a sprained left ankle to beat Los Angeles 116-107 in D’Antoni’s return to Madison Square Garden. “I was zoned in. I was locked in,” Anthony said. “Tonight was one of those games where I had that feeling. I wanted to get it going and I had that feeling going early in the game. My teammates were feeding off of that.” Firing in 3-pointers and moving the ball to open shooters, things they often struggled to do under D’Antoni, the Knicks won for the eighth time in nine games and improved to 9-0 at home for the first time since the 199293 season. “I wanted to beat them.
and a long ball from the right corner. After Van Wert junior Emilie Moonshower stopped the run with a trey from the left wing, Lauck added a 12-foot baseliner for an 11-point quarter that, for all practical purposes, decided the game. The Cougars started off with leads of 2-0, 4-2 and 6-4 before Lauck tied it at 6-6 after escaping the Van Wert defense for a wide open layup. The home team never led again, although they got as close as 18-16 midway through the second quarter. At that point an 11-2 Shawnee run pushed the lead out to 29-18. Van Wert got the last bucket of the first half (Alexis Dowdy layup, Kaitlynn Hall assist) and the first one of the second half (fast-break layup by Alexa Dunlap) to temporarily make it a game again but Lauck made short work of that. Van Wert coach Lance Moonshower had nothing but praise for Shawnee’s big three. “Those are exactly the three girls we highlighted in the scouting report,” he said. “We said we gotta contain those three girls. The Lauck girl is just a really nice player. Those girls know exactly what they do well, and they do it. They’re very disciplined. They know where they’re supposed to be and they get there, and they just execute.” The Indians had the better of it in all statistical categories, most notably the field goal shooting — 47 percent (26-of55) to 36 percent (19-of-53).

The Redskins’ Nicole Brown drilled a 3-pointer with time running out as they grabbed a 47-46 Western Buckeye League girls basketball win on the Union Bank Court inside the Elida Fieldhouse. Brown ended up with 12 points to pace the visitors (4-3, 2-0 WBL), while Annie Henderson added 11 and Erin Schnell 10.

Shawnee trio pushes Tribe past Lady Cougs
----Lady T-Birds romp past Grove girls LIMA — Lima Central Catholic got off to a quick 16-4 first-period lead Thursday night and went on to a 57-33 Northwest Conference girls basketball victory over Columbus Grove inside Msgr. E.C. Herr Gymnasium.
VAN WERT - Shawnee’s experienced trio of senior Britt Lauck, junior Claire Dahlke and sophomore Abby Waddle poured in 51 points to lead the Lady Indians to a decisive 64-45 win over Van Wert Thursday night. Shawnee is now 4-2 overall and 2-0 in the Western Buckeye League. Van Wert is 2-4 and 0-2. A third-quarter 9-0 run by Lauck alone put the game out of reach for the visitors, stretching a 31-24 lead to 40-24. That run exemplified Lauck’s versatility, consisting of a backcourt steal/layup, a nifty 8-foot pullup jumper, a slicing scoop shot
By JIM COX DHI Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org
From the line, Shawnee was 8-of-13 (62 percent) to Van Wert’s 2-of-6 (33 percent). The visitors had more rebounds — 29-25 — and fewer turnovers — 13-18. We got some good looks tonight,” said Moonshower of his team’s shooting woes. “We had a ton of good shots in the lane and we couldn’t make ‘em. We’re in such a hurry. We emphasized this before the game. We had a size advantage inside, so be solid, take your time, but we rushed so much. They (the Indians) don’t miss ‘em and we do miss ‘em. That’s a 4-point swing every time.” Lauck, Dahlke and Waddle scored 22, 15, and 14, respectively. Van Wert was led by Dowdy and Moonshower with 10 and nine. Van Wert hosts Coldwater 1 p.m. Saturday. Shawnee jayvees (4-2) used a 16-3 third quarter to pull away and grab a 43-22 win. The Indians got 21 points from Rachel Evans and 14 from Maryssa Herschler. Riley Jones had 12 for Van Wert (1-5).

Hicks nets career-high with 22 in win over Hornets DEFIANCE —Defiance College extended its home winning streak in non-conference contests to 16 straight victories and moved to 13-0 all-time against Kalamazoo with a 72-64 win on Thursday. The Jackets moved to 42-11 on the home planks under Kyle Brumett and a perfect 3-0 this season. Hicks anchored the Defiance attack on both ends of the court, hitting eight-of-12 shots from the floor and recording a new career-high with 22 points. The Port Clinton native also led all players with three blocks in his 39 minutes of action. Logan Wolfrum jumped up another spot on DC’s all-time scoring list to 13th with 1,466 career points and added eight rebounds, five assists and one steal to his 16-point effort. Wade Wooley and Travis Schomaeker also posted standout performances, with Wooley matching a personal-best of 11 boards, while Schomaeker drained a trio of three-point daggers to finish with 13 points and two steals. Despite the strong individual showings from DC, neither side could get on track in the opening stanza. Defiance and Kalamazoo both shot below 38.0 percent in the first half and the Jackets had to use a 12-5 spurt down the stretch to head to the break with a 30-26 lead. DC picked up the tempo out of the intermission, using back-to-back buckets in transi-
tion to open up a 43-32 advantage at the 15:21 mark, as the more aggressive offense led to better looks and a 53.6-percent clip from the floor over the final 20 minutes. Kalamazoo still managed a pair of challenges however, cutting the lead down to three points on two occasions. The Jackets turned to the long ball to stave off both spurts, as sharpshooting sophomores Travis Schomaeker and Drew Frizell buried critical three-point shots to double the lead to six each time and help keep the Hornets at bay in the 72-64 win. Defiance (4-4, 1-2 HCAC) will return to conference action on Saturday, when it hosts Franklin (4-3, 2-1 HCAC) at 4 p.m. All fans that bring a 2012-2013 DC winter sports schedule card to the game will get in at no cost. ---Jefferson junior high boys stay unbeaten The Jefferson seventh-grade boys basketball team defeated Fort Jennings 33-30 Thursday night to improve their record to 3-0 on the year. Scoring for the Wildcats were: Alex Rode (12), Brenen Auer (11), Cioran Shanahan (6), Tyler Bratton (2) and Devian Tyson (2). The eighth-graders also improved to 3-0 with a 45-31 triumph.

The Herald – 9
Professor seems overly focused on affluent vs. working class
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2012 There’s a strong chance you’ll be able to increase your earnings in the coming months. This could come about through a second source of income outside of your usual routine. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although you might not have as much control over a situation as you’d like, if you coordinate your efforts harmoniously with others, benefits are still likely. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Consideration and charm are two of the tools you could use very effectively. For best results, put yourself in the other person’s shoes and treat him or her as you’d like to be treated. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- One of the ideas you’ve been expressing has won you the respect of your contemporaries. Although this might not be apparent to you right away, it will be later on. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -You’re in a favorable trend, in terms of the fulfillment of your hopes and expectations. First be optimistic and positive, then sit back and expect good things to happen. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -If there is something in the back of your mind from which you feel career advantages could be derived, by all means take action as soon as possible. Make this a day of progress. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Chances are you could be a bit luckier negotiating deals today than you would be tomorrow. Once you break through, keep the pressure on until everything is signed, sealed and delivered. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Take it slow and don’t jump to any erroneous conclusions before you get a chance to weigh all the evidence, especially if you’re working with another to advance a mutual interest. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Someone who finds you exceptionally attractive has been wondering if you feel the same toward him or her. Be honest when you get a chance to express your feelings. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It looks like you could finally get something for your home that you’ve been wanting for a long time. It might not be brand-new, but it’s likely to be in mint condition nevertheless. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you intend to mix business and pleasure, try to do so by noon at the latest. Your more pleasant developments are likely to occur early in the day. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Someone whose motives are sincere might offer you a small consideration for no apparent reason other than kindness. Don’t be reluctant to accept; there won’t be any strings attached. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You are likely to be the recipient of some pleasant tidings. What you hear will put you in a good frame of mind to deal with whatever comes along later.

Pentagon to send missiles, 400 troops to Turkey
BY ROBERT BURNS The Associated Press INCIRLIK AIR BASE, Turkey — The U.S. will send two batteries of Patriot missiles and 400 troops to Turkey as part of a NATO force meant to protect Turkish territory from potential Syrian missile attack, the Pentagon said today. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta signed a deployment order en route to Turkey from Afghanistan calling for 400 U.S. soldiers to operate two batteries of Patriots at undisclosed locations in Turkey, Pentagon press secretary George Little told reporters flying with Panetta. Germany and the Netherlands have already agreed to provide two batteries of the U.S.-built defense systems and send up to 400 German and 360 Dutch troops to man them, bringing the total number of Patriot batteries slated for Turkey to six. German lawmakers voted 461-86 today to approve the deployment of two Patriot missile batteries. The mandate allows Germany to deploy a maximum 400 soldiers through January 2014. NATO foreign ministers endorsed Turkey’s request for the Patriots on Nov. 30. A number of Syrian shells have landed in Turkish territory since the conflict in the Arab state began in March 2011. Turkey has condemned the Syrian regime of President Bashar Assad,

Tolkien class at Wis. university proves popular
BY CARRIE ANTLFINGER The Associated Press MILWAUKEE — The vast collection of J.R.R. Tolkien manuscripts initially sold senior Joe Kirchoff on Marquette University, so when the school offered its first course devoted exclusively to the English author, Kirchoff wanted in. The only problem: It was full and he wasn’t on the literature track. Undaunted, the 22-yearold political science and history major lobbied the English department and others starting last spring and through the summer and “kind of just made myself a problem,” he said. His persistence paid off. “It’s a fantastic course,” said Kirchoff, a Chicago native. “It’s a great way to look at something that’s such a creative work of genius in such a way you really come to understand the man behind it.” He and the 31 other students can now boast of their authority about the author who influenced much of today’s high fantasy writing. The course was taught for the first time this fall as part of the university’s celebration of the 75th anniversary of “The Hobbit” being published. And class wrapped up just before the film, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” was released Friday. The class, which filled up fast with mostly seniors who had first dibs, looked at Tolkien as a whole, not just the popular “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.”
supported Syrian rebels and provided shelter to Syrian refugees. Ankara is particularly worried that Assad may get desperate enough to use chemical weapons. During a brief stop at Incirlik Air Base, Panetta told U.S. troops that Turkey might need the Patriots, which are capable of shooting down shorter-range ballistic missiles as well as aircraft. He said he approved the deployment “so that we can help Turkey have the kind of missile defense it may very well need to deal with the threats coming out of Syria,” he said. The U.S., Germany and the Netherlands are the only NATO members who have the upgraded PAC-3 missiles, capable of missile interception. Each battery has an average of 12 missile launchers, a NATO official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because alliance regulations do not allow him to speak on the record. In a statement issued today NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu said “the deployment will be defensive only.” “It will not support a no-fly zone or any offensive operation. Its aim is to deter any threats to Turkey, to defend Turkey’s population and territory and to de-escalate the crisis on NATO’s south-eastern border,” Lungescu said. Panetta did not mention how soon the two Patriot batteries will head to Turkey or how long they might stay.

Students took their final exam this week, and the course was so well received, Marquette is considering more in the future. “It’s the best class I’ve had in 27 years here ... for student preparation, interest and enthusiasm,” said English professor Tim Machan. “And I can throw out any topic and they will have read the material and they want to talk about the material.” Marquette is one of the main repositories of Tolkien’s drafts, drawings and other writings — more than 11,000 pages. It has the manuscripts for “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit,” as well as his lesser-known “Farmer Giles of Ham” and his children’s book “Mr. Bliss.” Marquette was the first institution to ask Tolkien for the manuscripts in 1956 and paid him about $5,000. He died in 1973. Other significant collections are at the Bodleian Library at Oxford University in England and Wheaton College in Illinois. Though Tolkien classes aren’t unusual nationwide, Marquette students had the added bonus of being able to visit Tolkien’s revisions, notes, detailed calendars, maps and watercolors on site at the school’s archive. And they got a lesson from the school’s archivist Bill Fliss. “One of the things we wanted to impress upon the students was the fact that Tolkien was a fanatical reviser,” said Fliss said. “He never really did anything once and was finished with it.”
