‘Go Getters’ balance exercise, learning
BY STEPHANIE GROVES firstname.lastname@example.org OTTOVILLE — The “Big Green Go-Getters” began the second half of the school year getting busy with the Safe Schools Healthy Students afterschool program. District Director of Technology Shelly Mumaw has been coordinating the Tuesday and Thursday program events for three years. There are 85 students participating in the program held from 3-4:30 p.m. and 10 teachers — current, substitute and retired — who guide and work closely with the students. The students are dismissed from classes at 3 p.m. and excitedly stampede into the gymnasium for the physical education portion of the program. Afterwards, they connect in the cafeteria for a snack and engage in a social setting with students from all grade levels. At 3:30 p.m., the enrichment and homework part of the program starts. Mumaw gave an example of the regimen. “Each day, the students take part in a physical activity in the gymnasium directed by Physical Education Teacher Tony Castronova where they participate in a sport, such as basketball, and have a structured activity like pushups or jumping jacks,” she said. For the second half of the program, students have an enrichment activity. “For example, during a Tuesday session, a student may go to either the library or computer activity lab and have a session with a teacher working on homework,” Mumaw said. Through the program, the students have completed an array of projects and activities. Kindergarten aide Lori Schroeder, detailed previous art and experimental-based projects completed by the students during the enrichment portions of the program. The kids work in groups and play board games— old board games like Monopoly— and participate in sensory experiments. “For Veterans Day, they folded close to 300 small U.S. paper flags to give to the veterans to wear in their shirt pockets,” Schroeder said. “It was really neat with kids having parents in the service.” Schroeder expanded on the offering.

“We had a sensory experiment based on color and scent,” Schroeder explained. “We also had a juice test where students tried to identify differing fruit juices.” The program has been quite successful and parents are impressed with the “value-added” attributes of the federally-funded Safe Schools Healthy Students (S.A.F.E.) program. Teacher and parent Mark Odenweller gives the program high praise. “I love the program and the kids really enjoy it,” he said enthusiastic. “It gives them a fun time to socialize and mingle with kids they do not normally see in classes.” For more information on the program, teachers and student activities, visit these sites: www.ottovilleschools.org and sshs.samhsa.gov.

DELPHOS — The Ohio Department of Aging has released the results of the 2012 Nursing Home Family Satisfaction Survey. Sarah Jane Living Center in Delphos ranked 13th among the more than 900 facilities participating in the survey with a score of 94.82 of 100. Administrator Mick Murphy said today he is pleased his facility did so well on the survey. “The satisfaction of our families is very important at Sarah Jane because we are a dementia unit,” he said. “Our goal is to keep families in the loop with care progress or the lack thereof.” Murphy said the staff is the main thrust behind the facility’s rating. “We have an excellent staff with a lot of longevity,” he said. “They are very caring and conscientious and our activities program is the center of care for our patients. We will continue to provide good care with the care we provide,” he added. Putnam Acres Care Center in Ottawa earned a 93.4 percent.
The survey, which was revised this year to increase participation and deliver better data, measures how satisfied family members of Ohioans who live in nursing homes are with the care and services their loved ones receive and it is a valuable tool for individuals to help select a nursing home that best meets their needs. The statewide average satisfaction score for facilities was 85.6 (out of a possible 100); 25 facilities scored 93.76 or better. The satisfaction ratings are available on the Ohio Longterm Care Consumer Guide at www.ltcohio.org. The Consumer Guide includes other information about nursing homes and residential care facilities, including inspection results, a list of available services, staffing levels, results of resident surveys and more. “Selecting a nursing home that can provide the right care in the right ways for ourselves or a loved one is one of the most important choices we may have to make in our adult lives.

‘Dear Abby’ advice columnist dies at age 94
By STEVE KARNOWSKI Associated Press Writer MINNEAPOLIS — Pauline Friedman Phillips, who as Dear Abby dispensed snappy, sometimes saucy advice on love, marriage and meddling mothers-in-law to millions of newspaper readers around the world and opened the way for the likes of Dr. Ruth, Dr. Phil and Oprah, has died. She was 94. Phillips died Wednesday in Minneapolis after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease, said Gene Willis, a publicist for the Universal Uclick syndicate. “My mother leaves very big high heels to fill with a legacy of compassion, commitment and positive social change,” her daughter, Jeanne Phillips, who now writes the column, said in a statement. Private funeral services were held Thursday, Willis said. The long-running “Dear Abby” column first appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle in 1956. Mother and daughter started sharing the byline in 2000, and Jeanne Phillips took over in 2002, when the family announced Pauline Phillips had Alzheimer’s disease. Pauline Phillips wrote under the name Abigail Van Buren. Her column competed for decades with the advice of Ann Landers, written by her twin sister, Esther Friedman Lederer, who died in 2002. Their relationship was stormy in their early adult years, but they later regained the closeness they had growing up in Sioux City, Iowa. The two columns differed in style. Ann Landers responded to questioners with homey, detailed advice. Abby’s replies were often flippant and occasionally risqui one-liners, like some of those collected for her 1981 book “The Best of Dear Abby.” Dear Abby: My boyfriend is going to be 20 years old next month. I’d like to give him something nice for his birthday. What do you think he’d like? — Carol Dear Carol: Nevermind what he’d like, give him a tie. Dear Abby: What inspires you most to write? — Ted Dear Ted: The Bureau of Internal Revenue. Dear Abby: I’ve been going with this girl for a year. How can I get her to say yes? — Don Dear Don: What’s the question? Phillips admitted that her advice changed over the years. When she started writing the column, she was reluctant to advocate divorce: “I always thought that marriage should be forever,” she explained. “I found out through my readers that sometimes the best thing they can do is part. If a man or woman is a constant cheater, the situation can be intolerable. Especially if they have children. When kids see parents fighting, or even sniping at each other, I think it is terribly damaging.” She willingly expressed views that she realized would bring protests. In a 1998 interview she remarked: “Whenever I say a kind word about gays, I hear from people, and some of them are damn mad. People throw Leviticus, Deuteronomy and other parts of the Bible to me. It doesn’t bother me. I’ve always been compassionate toward gay people.” If the letters sounded suicidal, she took a personal approach: “I’ll call them. I say, ‘This is Abby. How are you feeling? You sounded awfully low.’ And they say, ‘You’re calling me?’ After they start talking, you can suggest that they get professional help.” In a time before confessional talk shows and the nothingis-too-private culture of the Internet, the sisters’ columns offered a rare window into Americans’ private lives and a forum for discussing marriage, sex and the swiftly changing mores of the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s. About working mothers: “I think it’s good to have a woman work if she wants to and doesn’t

leave her children unattended — if she has a reliable person to care for them. Kids still need someone to watch them until they are mature enough to make responsible decisions.” One trend Phillips adamantly opposed: children having sex as early as 12 years old. “Kids grow up awfully fast these days,” she said. “You should try to have a good relationship with your kids, no matter what they do.” Pauline Esther Friedman, known as Popo, was born on Independence Day 1918 in Sioux City, Iowa, 17 minutes after her identical twin, Esther Pauline (Eppie). Their father was a well-off owner of a movie theater chain. Their mother took care of the home. Both were immigrants from Russia who had fled their native land in 1905 because of the persecution of Jews. The twins spent their growing-up years together. They dressed alike, both played the violin and both wrote gossip columns for their high school and college newspapers. They attended Morningside College in Sioux City. Two days before their 21st birthday, they had a double wedding. Pauline married Morton Phillips, a businessman, Esther married Jules Lederer, a business executive and later founder of Budget Rent-a-Car. The twins’ lives diverged as they followed their husbands to different cities.
Jan. 25, 1923 - Jan. 16, 2013 Fairy Etta Sterling, 89, of Delphos passed away at 5:18 p.m. on Wednesday at Vancrest Healthcare Center. She was born on Jan. 25, 1923, in Delphos to Daniel and Opal (Carmean) Cross, who preceded her in death. She was united in marriage to George Sterling, who survives in Delphos. Survivors also include a son, Richard (Becky) Auer of Delphos; five daughters, Carol (Jerry) Hirn of Delphos, Dianna (Norman) Mullenhour of Kentucky, Shirley (Everett) Hall of Coldwater, Patty (Harley) Duncan of Van Wert and Mitzi (Dave) Huffine of Van Wert; one sister, Dorothy Coulter of Delphos; two stepsons, Max Douglas Sterling of Dayton and Donald Anthony Sterling of St. Marys; one half brother, Roger (Shirley) Diltz of Delphos; and several grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. She was also preceded in death by a son, Gary Auer; a daughter, Sue Ann Kohorst; and a sister, Donna Cross. Mrs. Sterling worked for Ohio Decorative Products in Spencerville. She enjoyed quilting, crocheting, unique woodworking and her flower garden. She also loved art and was a very creative and talented artist. She was a member of The Delphos Wesleyan Church. Services will begin at noon on Saturday at Harter and Schier Funeral Home, with Pastor Wayne Prater officiating. Burial will be at a later date. Visitation will be held Saturday from 10 a.m to noon at Harter and Schier Funeral Home. Memorial contributions may be made to the family.

Consumer Guide are important tools for families who expect, and deserve, excellence,” said Bonnie KantorBurman, director of the Ohio Department of Aging. “The survey and the guide emphasize our commitment to quality care. Consumers must be fully informed about their options if we are to expect that they will, in turn, demand excellence for themselves or their family members.” The family satisfaction survey was conducted between May and December 2012 by the Scripps Gerontology Center of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, on behalf of the Ohio Department of Aging and under the direction of the Office of the State Long-term Care Ombudsman. More than 27,000 family members and 948 homes participated. Of the 721 participating homes with statistically significant results, 387 scored above the state average and 229 scored 88 or better, which earns them an additional “quality point” in a reimburse-
ment formula used by the Office of Medical Assistance (Medicaid) to reward quality in nursing homes. Survey costs are supported by a fee charged to nursing homes by the state. This year, the department revised the survey to better capture the needs and ideas of families. For this reason, Kantor-Burman cautioned against directly comparing the survey results with those from previous years. “This survey reflects our increased focus on person-centered care and caring and our new quality-based reimbursement formula. We expected that these changes may have an impact on the statewide average. We are especially pleased with the larger than usual response rate and are gratified by the number of families who are so involved with their loved ones’ care.” “In addition to assisting families in choosing quality, person-centered nursing homes, this survey also is a tool to help long-term care administrators and staff improve the care and services they provide,” added
Beverley Laubert, the State of Ohio Long-term Care Ombudsman. “Staff, residents, families, advocates and state leaders continue to work together to ensure choice, respect and self-determination for all, regardless of where they call ‘home’.” The survey asked family members their opinions on activities, administration, admission, choices, direct care and nursing, laundry, meals and dining, social services, therapy and general satisfaction. Researchers identified two key questions that sum up the respondent’s perception of the home: “Overall, do you like this facility?” and “Would you recommend this facility to a family member or friend?” The department will survey resident satisfaction again in 2013.

Ohio begins educators’ school shooting training
By KANTELE FRANKO The Associated Press COLUMBUS — A state instructor training educators to respond in school shooting situations said Thursday that planning a response, practicing in advance and using whatever resources are available in such emergencies are keys to saving lives. Participants in the first of five regional training events around Ohio watched a sometimes graphic and emotional slideshow presentation about warning signs missed and lessons learned in previous cases, including the Columbine and Virginia Tech tragedies and the deadly Chardon shooting last February that spurred the state to plan this training for educators. It ended with a tribute to victims of the December massacre at a Connecticut elementary school, an event that spurred a surge in interest in the state’s training. More than 200 teachers, administrators and law enforcement officers registered for Thursday’s sessions in Columbus. Instructor James Burke of the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy told them to be aggressive about reporting troubling student behavior, practicing for an active shooter situation and making sure school staff and law enforcement have a similar understanding about how a response would work. “It’s sad that we have to be here today, but it’s also the reality of the world we live in, and I think you need to be prepared for it, and our ultimate goal is to protect kids,” said Green Local Schools superintendent Michael Nutter. He attended with an administrator from each school in his Akronarea district and planned to take some of Burke’s suggestions back to his district’s safety committee. Those tips ranged from simple preparedness steps, such as marking classroom numbers in windows to guide emergency responders, to ways to ensure students and staff aren’t stationary targets if there’s an active shooter. That could mean leaving through a back door or window, Burke said, or locking a room and silently hiding while preparing to fight back with whatever distractions can be found — bookcase barricades, coffee cup projectiles, fire extinguishers, anything at all. “We have to try to slow them down,” he said. “We have to make it difficult.” Response plans vary from district to district, but a widespread lockdown isn’t necessarily the best choice, he said. That last bit caught the attention of Paul LaRue, a high school history teacher from the rural Washington Court House district who said he hadn’t really considered all the options Burke presented. “I thought lockdown was kind of like the ultimate answer,” said LaRue, who planned to practice barricading his door with a nearby bookcase during the next drill. He also planned to review the suggestions Burke had made for identifying troubled students before they turn to violence, citing commonalities in the profiles of known shooters. LaRue said the issue of school safety is one of the biggest changes he’s noticed since joining the district 28 years ago. “It’s such a dramatic shift from … the old days, when the doors were open and you didn’t really think about those things or you thought they happened someplace else, to realizing it can happen any place,” he said. Attorney General Mike DeWine, who spoke at the event, said it’s prudent to train school staff because they “are truly the first responders” if there’s an armed intruder. He said he expects interest in the training to increase as word about it spreads. DeWine’s office, in partnership with the Department of Education, is planning more regional training events in Cincinnati, Chauncey, Toledo and Valley View over the next few weeks. DeWine said his office also is open to providing training at individual districts’ teacher training days if requested.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A new racino scheduled to open in northeast Ohio needs to hire 600 people. Officials at ThistleDown, an existing thoroughbred racetrack in North Randall, southeast of Cleveland, are holding a job fair today and Saturday to fill positions including involving food and beverage, video lottery terminal services, security, wardrobe, marketing, personnel and finance. The Plain Dealer reports that ThistleDown Racino is set to open in early April with more than 1,000 video lottery terminals that function like slot machines.

Obama team to form agenda group
By KEN THOMAS The Associated Press dition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the plans ahead of an announcement on Friday. Coming just days before Obama’s second inauguration, the move represents the first time a sitting president has ever transformed his presidential campaign operation into an outside group with the express purpose of promoting his agenda. Obama campaign aides and volunteers are expected to discuss the group at a conference on Sunday focused on the future of the campaign organization and the president’s legacy. The new Obama group was first reported Thursday by the Los Angeles Times. The group’s board of directors will include several former White House and campaign aides, including former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, top campaign officials Stephanie Cutter, Jennifer O’MalleyDillon and Julianna Smoot, and Frank White, a businessman and prominent Obama donor. White House aide David Plouffe, the 2008 campaign manager, is expected to join the board after he leaves the administration later this month. Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod will serve as a consultant to it. Obama’s political apparatus, which paired traditional grassroots techniques with cutting-edge technology to fundamentally change the electorate, was groundbreaking when it was created for the 2008 campaign.

Larry Webb, CEO of homebuilder The New Home Co., in Aliso Viejo, Calif., says he is building homes at a faster pace than a year ago, but he sticks to a sell-first, build-second approach. Overall, Webb is selling and building a minimum of four homes a month, at least double the pace of sales and construction two years ago. Webb believes the steppedup pace of home construction will continue this year. But he’s holding on to the sell-first approach. “Based on what we’ve gone through in the last recession and the way we do business, we think we should primarily build after we sell homes,” he said. “We only build after we sell.” The company, which builds homes in California, has 10 open communities and plans to open another 14 this year.
Surge in home construction likely to continue
WASHINGTON — In an unprecedented move, President Barack Obama’s vaunted political organization is being turned into a nonprofit group — funded in part by corporate money — to mobilize support behind the president’s second-term agenda. Democratic officials familiar with the plan said Thursday the tax-exempt organization will be called Organizing for Action and seek to harness the energy of the president’s re-election campaign for future legislative fights. Officials said the group will be separate from the Democratic National Committee and advocate on key policy issues such as gun control and immigration, train future leaders and devote attention to local issues around the nation. The president’s 2012 campaign manager, Jim Messina, will serve as the group’s national chairman, and White House official Jon Carson is leaving the administration to become its executive director. The officials said the organization plans to accept donations from individuals and corporations — and disclose their identities — but not take money from lobbyists and political action committees, a move in line with donor rules set up for the president’s Inaugural Committee. It will have offices in Washington and Chicago, the officials said. The officials spoke on con-
US commandos boost numbers to train Mexican forces
By KIMBERLY DOZIER The Associated Press The special operations team within Northcom will be turned into a new headquarters, led by a general instead of a colonel. It was established in a Dec. 31 memo signed by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. That move gives the group more autonomy and the number of people could eventually quintuple from 30 to 150, meaning the headquarters could expand its training missions with the Mexicans, even though no new money is being assigned to the mission. The special operations program has already helped Mexican officials set up their own intelligence center in Mexico City to target criminal networks, patterned after similar centers in war zones built to target al-Qaida in Afghanistan and Iraq, two current U.S. officials said. Mexican and U.S. military officials played down the change, and it’s unclear whether the Mexican government will agree to boost its training. “We are merely placing a component commander in charge of things we are already doing,” said Northcom spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis in a written statement. Mexico’s Foreign Affairs
up legions of backers, collected information about them and linked them to each other through the Internet. It also used sophisticated new tools — and mounds of data it had culled — to identify sporadic or new voters, and ensure they turned out on Election Day. Huge numbers of minority, young and first-time voters went to the polls to carry Obama to victory. After he won, Obama decided to house the backbone of his campaign — his massive email list, which at the time included roughly 12 million to 13 million contacts, its technological functions and its network of neighborhood team leaders — at the DNC, which historically has served as the president’s political arm. The grass-roots mobilizing and fundraising operation was dubbed Organizing for America, and it sought to marshal support for Obama’s health care overhaul during the first term. But it struggled to have much impact on the divisive debate and essentially became a campaign-inwaiting for Obama ahead of his re-election race. When Obama launched his 2012 campaign, he had a fullscale political operation at the ready. It raised more than $1 billion and used high-tech tools to identify supporters and turn them out in droves. He also used it to mobilize grassroots supporters behind efforts to extend the payroll tax cut, federal student aid benefits and recent efforts to raise taxes on the wealthy.
WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is stepping up aid for Mexico’s bloody drug war with a new U.S.-based special operations headquarters to teach Mexican security forces how to hunt drug cartels the same way special operations teams hunt al-Qaida, according to documents and interviews with multiple U.S. officials. Such assistance could help newly elected Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto establish a military force to focus on drug criminal networks that have terrorized Mexico’s northern states and threatened the U.S. Southwest border. Mexican officials say warring drug gangs have killed at least 70,000 people between 2006 and 2012. Based at the U.S. Northern Command in Colorado, Special Operations Command-North will build on a commando program that has brought Mexican military, intelligence and law enforcement officials to study U.S. counterterrorist operations, to show them how special operations troops built an interagency network to target alQaida mastermind Osama bin Laden and his followers.

Hagel pick test of Senate on presidential choices
the former four-term Texas senator as it marked the first time the Senate had rejected one of its own for a Cabinet post. Republican President George H.W. Bush, on the job barely two months, absorbed the political blow. More than two decades later, President Barack Obama’s nominee for defense secretary, twoterm former GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel, faces stiff opposition from fellow Republicans who are willing to ignore Nixon’s plea — and perhaps even toss aside their own words from 24 years ago — and vote against Hagel. The two politically charged confirmation fights offer obvious parallels and notable differences, especially in a Senate short on traditional comity. The Defense Department took issue with the comparison. “This confirmation process is about one nominee and one nominee alone: Chuck Hagel and his strong record
Department emailed a statement saying it had been briefed on the changes and had no further comment The creation of the new command marks another expansion of Adm. Bill McRaven’s special operations empire, as he seeks to migrate special operators from their decade of service in war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan to new missions, even as the rest of the military fights postwar contraction and multibilliondollar budget cuts. The new headquarters will also coordinate special operations troops when needed for domestic roles like rescuing survivors after a natural disaster, or helping the U.S. Coast Guard strike ships carrying suspect cargo just outside U.S. territorial waters, according to multiple current and former U.S. officials briefed on the mission. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the Pentagon has not formally announced the new headquarters. The initial document petitioning Panetta for the command stresses the command’s role in militaryto-military cooperation with Mexico. The document was signed in September 2012 by McRaven and Northcom commander Gen. Charles Jacoby.
WASHINGTON — In the middle of a bitter fight over a Republican president’s nominee for defense secretary, a former White House occupant pleaded with senators to give the president his choice for the Pentagon job. “Unless there is conclusive evidence against the nominee, the Senate should respect the right of a new president to choose the men and women he believes are best qualified to serve in his Cabinet,” former President Richard Nixon said in March 1989. Nixon’s request fell upon deaf ears. The Democraticcontrolled Senate, on a largely party-line vote, defeated the nomination of John Tower amid allegations that he was an excessive drinker, womanizer and held close ties to defense contractors — all charges that he denied. It was an ignominious outcome for
on the issues and his proven ability to lead. People should resist the temptation to draw historical comparisons that don’t add up,” the Pentagon press secretary, George Little, said Friday in London, where he was traveling with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. In both cases, Democrats hold a 55-45 advantage in the Senate — good news for Hagel as his nomination gained Democratic momentum this week with the backing of Sens. Chuck Schumer and Barbara Boxer. The two expressed misgivings about whether he was sufficiently pro-Israel and anti-Iran. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., already were in Hagel’s corner, lauding the decorated Vietnam War veteran who would be the first enlisted man to head the Pentagon. Hagel met with Levin Thursday in advance of his confirmation hearing on Jan. 31.

First half lifts Lancers by Lady ’Cats Pirates whip up on
By NICK JOHNSON DHI Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — The Jefferson Lady Wildcats welcomed the Lincolnview Lady Lancers to The Stage at Jefferson Middle School Thursday night. The Lady Lancers won the Northwest Conference game 62-44. It was originally scheduled for Jefferson High School but a water problem forced the game location to be moved. The Lady Lancers started the game on a 16-2 run before Jefferson was forced to burn a timeout to try to end Lincolnview’s momentum. The Lancers used six points from Claire Dye and four points from Katie Dye and Kaylee Thatcher to jump out to the huge lead. Out of the timeout, the Lady Wildcats got two foul shots from Jasmine McDougall and one from Rileigh Stockwell to put the score at the end of the first stanza at 16-5, Lincolnview. Lincolnview went on another large spurt in the second period — 16-5 — despite five points from Brooke Hesseling. The visitors got six points from Kaitlyn Brant to push the lead to 32-10. After Jefferson’s Hannah Sensibaugh nailed a 3-pointer, Lincolnview scored the final six points of the half to push the lead to 38-13 at the break. The Lady Wildcats started the third quarter with a 10-6 run, getting four points from Stockwell and Brooke Culp, to cut the Lady Lancer lead to 44-23. Both teams battled for the rest of the quarter but a late basket by Julia Thatcher sent the Lady Lancers into the fourth quarter with a 50-27 lead. The Lady Wildcats went on a huge run of their own to start the fourth quarter when they outscored Lincolnview 14-2 to cut the visitor lead to 52-41, paced by four points from Culp and Gabby Pimpas. Lincolnview countered with a 10-3 run, including four from CONTINENTAL — The Fort Jennings Lady Musketeers did what they needed to do for the most part in their Putnam County League cage battle against the Continental Pirates at Don Huber Memorial Gymnasium inside the Pirates’ Cove Thursday: getting rebounds and putting back the offensive boards; but the problem the Musketeers were having was connecting on those opportunities. The guests put up 20 shots in the first half and 45 for the game — with the majority coming inside — but Jennings connected on just 14 as the hosts came away with a 62-41 victory. The Pirates delivered on just 18-of-60 from the field but leading scorer Vanessa Koppenhoffer picked up the slack for the home team, nailing 13-of-16 from the foul line on her way to leading all scorers with 20 markers.

Lincolnview had four players in double figures, including Claire Dye with a game-high 18 points. Katie Dye added 16, Brant 12 and Kaylee Thatcher 10 for a very balanced scoring night. “(During) the first half, I thought we played as well as we have all season at both ends of the floor. We were executing offensively, knocking down shots,” Lancer head man Dan Williamson said. “Defensively, we did a good job of rebounding and forcing turnovers. During the second half, we talked about keeping that focus and intensity; we just didn’t do it that third quarter. They came out and they attacked us and they finally started making shots to get back in the game. It’s tough to keep that intensity when you are up by a wide margin; we just need to work on that.” The Lady Wildcats drop to 1-4 in the NWC and 4-11 overall. They host Wayne Trace Tuesday. With the win, the Lady Lancers improve to 3-2 in NWC play and 11-4 overall. They entertain LCC Thursday.

Wildkittens pound Lady Cougs By JIM COX DHI Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org LIMA - “This is one loss you learn from and you move on,” said Van Wert girls coach Lance Moonshower after Thursday night’s 59-25 Western Buckeye League shellacking at the hands of Bath. The Wildkittens took control with four triples in a 14-2 first quarter and rolled to their fifth WBL win against no losses. B a t h improves to 10-4 overall. Van Wert is 1-4 in WBL play and 7-7 overall. “That’s the funny part - they (the Wildkittens) haven’t been shooting the ball well from deep,” said Moonshower. “The M-O for the season has been to pack it in, don’t let them dribble penetrate, stop the bigs inside. That was the game plan. As it turned out, that didn’t work out real well because they got hot tonight.” The Cougars were on a 5-game winning streak but it quickly became apparent that it wouldn’t reach six. The visitors turned the ball over on their first four possessions and didn’t even get off a shot until halfway through the first quarter. Van Wert didn’t get its first field goal until Alexis Dowdy nailed an 8-foot pull-up jumper
Lady ’Dawgs edge Indians
ELIDA — A 12-7 lead in the third period was enough for the Elida girls basketball team as they held off Shawnee 43-40
with 3:52 left in the second quarter. Dowdy banked in a 10-foot angle shot a minute later but her two baskets were the only ones the Cougs had in the entire first half, after which Bath led 29-6. “We just couldn’t get started offensively,” said Moonshower. “It just snowballed on us. We had six points at the half. You’re not going to beat anybody with six points. Right off the bat, we had a couple of turnovers. We really dropped our heads. Everybody forgot what we were supposed to do, what positions you were supposed to be in. People were running wild. Against a really good team like Bath, you just can’t do that.” Despite that big lead, the ’Kittens weren’t exact burning the nets, hitting only 9-of26 field goal tries in the half. However, six of those buckets were from long range. The Cougars were 2-for-15 after 16 minutes, with many of the misses being blocked or deflected shots. Bath’s trapping defense had already created 15 turnovers. It was more of the same in the third quarter, after which the hosts led 43-13. The fourth period was Van Wert’s best. The Cougars got two 3-pointers from designated sharpshooter Emilie Moonshower and another trey from Hannah Hulbert. Bath outshot Van Wert from the field — 38 percent (20-of-53) to 18 percent (7-of-38) — and the line — 80 percent (12-of15) to 73 percent (8-of-11). The ’Kittens won the boards 25-21 and had a huge margin in turnovers, 9-28. Nine Wildkittens scored, led by Jenna Hollar’s 14. Emilie Moonshower’s six points led Van Wert. “Just like the last five wins, those are behind us. You learn from them and you move on,” added Moonshower. “We had pretty good momentum going. You’d like to have a little better effort but a lot of it was just Bath. They took us out of what we wanted to do offensively. Defensively, some of the things we thought we could give them, they took advantage of.”
IOC: Admission is not enough for Armstrong
LONDON (AP) — Lance Armstrong’s doping confession to Oprah Winfrey was “too little, too late” and failed to provide any new information that will help clean up the sport he tarnished through years of cheating, the vice president of the IOC said Friday. A day after stripping Armstrong of his bronze medal from the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the IOC urged the disgraced former Tour de France champion to supply details to anti-doping authorities in order to “bring an end to this dark episode.” In an interview with The Associated Press, IOC vice president Thomas Bach said Armstrong’s admission to Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs — after years of vehement denials — was not enough. “If he thinks this interview would help him get credibility back, I think this is too little, too late,” said Bach, a German lawyer who leads the IOC’s anti-doping investigations. “It’s a first step in the right direction, but no more. “If he really loves his sport and wants to regain at least some credibility, then he should tell the whole truth and cooperate with the relevant sports bodies.” Armstrong is under pressure to come clean to the World Anti-Doping Agency, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the independent commission set up the International Cycling Union. “We have three sports bodies he can address,” Bach said by telephone. “He needs to give testimony under oath. After lying for more than a dozen years, he needs to be questioned by experts and not just in a well-orchestrated interview.” In a statement from Lausanne, Switzerland, the IOC wrote: “We now urge Armstrong to present all the evidence he has to the appropriate anti-doping authorities so that we can bring an end to this dark episode and move

Continental took a 22-19 lead into the half. Fort Jennings came out firing in the second half and cut the deficit to one at 22-21 30 seconds into the period. After falling behind later, the Musketeers came all the way back and tied the game at 31-31 on the strength of an 8-0 run as German hit a shot from the low post with 3:27 to go in the canto. However, Continental answered right back and then some; Williamson drained two 3-pointers late in the frame, capping off an 11-1 spurt with 26 seconds left in the third for a 43-29 margin. Continental extended the lead in the final quarter, despite the teams exchanging baskets early on; Schroeder and German both picked the pocket of the Pirates’ point guard and took it half the court for easy layups. Nevertheless, Koppenhoffer drilled 7-of8 from the line in the third and 4-of-4 attempts in the final period to help pace the Pirates. Continental outscored their guests 19-9 in the final eight minutes in cement the win. The Pirates move to 10-3 overall and 3-1 in league play, remaining in the thick of the league race, while Fort Jennings falls to 6-10 in all games and 1-3 in the PCL.

Second quarter pushes Lady Knights on to ‘W’ By SEAN LaFONTAINE DHI Correspondent email@example.com
CONVOY — The Crestview Lady Knights hosted the P a u l d i n g Lady Panthers Thursday night in conference action. The Lady Knights used a big second quarter to pull away from the Lady Panthers on their way to a 61-33 victory. The Lady Knights started off the game on a 10-1 run. Kennis Mercer led the way with five points and Lindsey Motycka added three. The Lady Panthers fought back to get within four thanks to a free throw by Abby Pease and a three by Sierra McCullough, making the score 12-8. The Lady Knights kept a 4-point lead after one quarter, 15-11. Paulding started the second quarter on a charge. After two Crestview free throws by Motycka, the Lady Panthers got a three by Jerika Bland and a two by Abby Pease to get within one 17-16 but the Lady Knights answered with a 13-0 spurt in the middle of the quarter to give them a commanding 30-16 lead.

forward, stronger and cleaner.” In the interview with Winfrey, Armstrong acknowledged that he used EPO, testosterone, human growth hormone and blood transfusions in order to win the Tour de France seven times. “This is not enough,” said Bach, who is a leading contender to succeed Jacques Rogge as IOC president in elections in September. “I hoped he would be more precise, that you would get an idea of who were the people behind him. He’s even protected the famous Dr. Ferrari.” Bach was referring to Italian doctor Michele Ferrari, who worked closely with Armstrong and has been accused of being a mastermind of the cyclist’s doping program. “In some parts of the interview, he was pretty evasive, in some parts contradicting himself,” Bach said. Bach said the interview offered no information beyond the USADA report that detailed widespread doping by Armstrong and his teammates and led to the stripping of his Tour titles and a lifetime ban from Olympic sports. “We have no new facts — not a single new fact going beyond the USADA report,” Bach added. Armstrong denied in the interview that cycling body UCI covered up positive tests or helped him avoid detection. Bach said the interview provided no allegations that would put cycling’s Olympic status in jeopardy. Senior Canadian IOC member Dick Pound, a former head of WADA, suggested this week that cycling could be kicked out of the Olympics if there was proof of UCI collusion with Armstrong. “I still hope for a full inquiry but in general, you have to consider the anti-doping system since then has changed very much for the better,” Bach said. “The UCI has introduced the blood passport, there is more target testing and outof-competition testing and better methods for detecting EPO. You cannot draw conclusions from 10 years ago.”

another Third period keys Rangers over Jays Gonzalezgoing outstep closer to a champ
By JIM METCALFE
DELPHOS — The St. John’s girls basketball team scored 20 points versus New Knoxville in the fourth period of its Midwest Athletic Conference contest Thursday night at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium. Unfortunately, they had dug themselves too big a hole to overcome the Lady Rangers’ 19-7 bulge in the third period en route to a 48-41 victory. The senior-less and extremely young Rangers (3 juniors, 4 sophomores, 4 freshmen) led 17-14 at the half but clicked on both ends of the floor in the third canto. They shot 8-of-12 from the field (19-of-34 for the game, 2-of-7 from deep, for 55.9%) running their half-court set well, getting a number of layins. Junior Page Lehman (10 points, 5 boards) got hot, shaking loose from the Lady Jay (6-7, 1-4 MAC) man-toman defense for eight points in leading the way. As well, Knoxville (10-3, 4-1 MAC) used its solid man defense (with a bit of 2-3 zone mixed in) to hold the Blue and Gold to 3-of-8 shooting (14-of-40 overall, 5-of-20 long range, for 35%). When sophomore Meg Reineke (16 counters) laid in a bucket with 40 ticks left, the visitors led 36-21. “We lost the intensity we had defensively from the first half. New Knoxville stepped their game up and we didn’t,” Jays mentor Dan J. Grothouse explained. “I thought we did a good job on Lehman and (Haley) Horstman overall — holding them to 10 points each was a good effort — but we let Lehman get away from us. Offensively, we struggled with our confidence with the ball. We weren’t getting any offensive rebounds and they were just more aggressive.” New Knoxville seemed on the verge of coasting to the double-digit win, leading

Sophomore Rebekah Fischer (8 markers) hit a 3-ball at 4:24 and that seemed to spark the hosts. With senior Jessica Recker (game-high 23 points, including 3 bombs, 4 assists) going off for 11 points in the period, they got within six points three times, the last on her two tosses with 20.5 ticks remaining. However, it was too little, too late. “We played six minutes of excellent basketball in the third period. That’s what I told the girls; we played excellent ball in that stretch and got the win,” New Knoxville coach Tim Hegemier said. “We really ran our offense well and got some great looks that we put in. We did a nice job defensively as well. We’ve got a lot of young girls out there and we’ve had some injuries; we got the win and that’s what matters.” Both teams struggled in the early going against the other’s tough defense. They combined for 6-of-18 shooting — 3-of-9 each — but it was a pair of 3-balls by the Jays, as well as two freebies, that was the difference. A
Fischer trey with 2:38 on the clock accounted for a 10-6 edge by the home team. New Knoxville had the answer in the second quarter: the junior Horstman (10 points, 5 assists, 5 boards, 3 steals); she scored six counters in the canto. When Reineke got a second-chance bucket at 3:36, it gave the Lady Rangers the lead for good at 13-12. A Horstman transition drive at 1:04 gave them a 17-12 margin but Recker’s mid-lane basket from the right side with 20 ticks on the clock made it 17-14, New Knoxville, at the half. “In the fourth period, we just seemed to have more urgency. Rebekah hit a 3 and all of a sudden, we got rolling,” Grothouse added. “We had just dug ourselves too deep of a hole. We have struggled with our confidence shooting and handling the ball lately, so it was good to see that happen.” In toto, New Knoxville finished 8-of-13 at the line (61.5%); nabbed 25 caroms (6 offensive); and amassed 11 errors and 12 fouls. They host Jackson Center Saturday. St. John’s totaled 8-of-11 freebies (72.7%); 23 rebounds (10 offensive) as senior Katie Vorst had six and freshman Sydney Fischbach added five; and compiled 11 miscues and 17 fouls. They visit Crestview 6 p.m. Saturday. There was no junior varsity clash as New Knoxville didn’t have enough players.
By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Tony Gonzalez remembers talking to Michael Strahan after the former New York Giants defensive lineman won a Super Bowl title in his final game. Talk about going out in style. “That’s the way you want to do it,” Gonzalez said Thursday. “That’s every athlete’s dream. I don’t care what sport it is. You’d love to win a championship and leave. That’s where I’m at now.” It took him 16 years to finally win a playoff game. Now, he’s two victories away from a Super Bowl championship with the Atlanta Falcons, two wins away from going out the same way Strahan did. “There’s no doubt I could play this game another three years if I wanted to and at a high level, too,” the 36-yearold Gonzalez insisted. “But there comes a point in your career where you’ve gotten everything you ever wanted from this game.” Everything except a ring. “Really, the only reason I played the last couple of years was for an opportunity like this,” Gonzalez explained. “Now that it’s presented itself, I feel closure coming on. But there’s more closure to take care of. It’s about winning this week and winning the Super Bowl.” The top-seeded Falcons (14-3) will host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in the NFC championship game, looking to reach the Super Bowl for just the second time in franchise history. Even though Gonzalez has not fully committed to retirement, there’s a definite sense in the Atlanta locker room of wanting to give him the ultimate going-away gift. He’s given so much to the game, catching more passes than anyone in NFL history except Jerry Rice. He’s given so much to the Falcons over the last four years, working with younger players and setting an example that all were encouraged to follow. “We know what he’s capable of doing on the football field,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “But Tony is a mentor to so many players in that locker room. He’s not a guy of many words but when he comes to work, he comes to work. We always tell the new guys in the locker room, ‘See that guy over there? Mimic what he’s doing’.” Gonzalez’s influence has surely rubbed off on players such as receiver Julio Jones, already a Pro Bowler in just his second season. Even Roddy White, who already was one of the NFL’s better receivers when Gonzalez was acquired by the Falcons after a dozen seasons in Kansas City, has picked up a thing or two since No. 88 arrived. “I’d like to think I’ve helped them with their routine,” Gonzalez said. “I’m a big believer in routine. Yeah, you can talk about being great. When young guys come in, I ask them their goals. They all want to be Pro Bowl players. Well, how are you going to get there? You can’t just say you’re going to work hard;
Home sure is sweet to New England
By BARRY WILNER The Associated Press FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Home sweet home. Sure works for the Patriots in the AFC title game. New England gets a chance to extend its mastery in the final step to the Super Bowl on Sunday against Baltimore, the team the Patriots beat a year ago for the conference crown. That win made them 4-0 in home conference title games. Although they were more vulnerable at home than usual during the 2012 regular season, losing to Arizona and San Francisco and having tight games with Buffalo and the Jets, the Patriots (13-4) are happy not to be heading to Baltimore (12-6) this weekend. Or anywhere else. “Everything is on deck,” Patriots Pro Bowl defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said. “You have to put everything you have into this game. If you lose you go home, plain and simple.” But the Patriots are at home, where they’ve been beaten in early-round games, including against the Ravens 33-14 three years ago. At this stage, though, no way. That success rate for the AFC championship doesn’t fool Wilfork into feeling complacent. Just the opposite. “This team always plays us tough,” Wilfork added. “This team has been in the playoffs on the road and won a lot of games. They won here in the playoffs. We have to be able to prepare well and execute very well at a high level. I don’t think we can (leave) no stone unturned in this game because if we do, it could cost us.” The Patriots are one of the NFL’s best home teams, going 73-15 since Gillette Stadium opened in 2002, including 10-2 in the postseason. Many of those games have been routs. But the Ravens are 8-5 in road playoffs, including their upset of the Broncos in double overtime last Saturday in an equally tough venue. And there’s no reason to fear a trip to Foxborough, where no one has fared better in the playoffs. Last January, they were an incompletion in the end zone in the final minute — Sterling Moore stripped the ball from Lee Evans after the Ravens receiver had both hands on it — from winning. And then they botched a 32-yard field goal that would have forced overtime. “These are two of the top teams for a long time now and we know each other very well,” Ravens star linebacker Ray Lewis said. “It’s that chess match; they are going to make plays and we are going to. It’s always one play here or there and who makes the last play will win. It will always be a 60-minute game.” That’s something Lewis revels in as he makes a final run for a second championship before retiring when the Ravens are done. “Both sides understand the game of football,” he added. “There have been some great, great rivalries and we have one of those going on with New England now.” Baltimore won at home 31-30 in Week 3, which seems like eons ago. The Ravens were contending for the AFC’s top seed until losing four of their last five. That dropped them out of a bye position, too, which New England grabbed. But the Ravens beat Indianapolis at home in the wild-card round, then stunned Denver. “I think you always want to play at home. We want to play at home. We’ve got great fans and it’s a great atmosphere,” Ravens center Matt Birk said. “I’d say it’s certainly an advantage but that’s the way it is. Ultimately, it’s not going to decide the outcome of the game. Whoever plays better, more fundamentally sound football, is going to win the game.” Overall, the Ravens are 2-7 vs. New England, including 1-5 at Foxborough. Their defeats in five of the last six meetings were by a combined 16 points. Wilfork doesn’t care about history, recent or otherwise. “This is going to be a battle,” he added. “Both teams deserve to be at this level. You have the two best teams in the AFC playing. “It just goes to show you the consistency of these teams. Every year it always seems like we are in it and they are in it and it just comes down to a couple of plays dur-

(Continued from Page 6) lead into the locker room. The Lady Panthers made one more run to get back in the game. With the score 38-18, Paulding went on a 9-0 span to get themselves back in the game. Pease started the run with two free throws. Later, Bland hit a basket to make the score 38-22, then McCullough hit a three followed by a two to get the Lady Panthers within 11, 38-27. Crestview proved to be too much, though, and closed the quarter out on a 9-0 run of their own. Mariah Henry led the charge with four points.
ing the season or a couple of games in the season for these two ball clubs. For us we just have to be ready to go for 60 minutes; sometimes even more than that, as we saw last week. They went against a football team in Denver and they went out there and played more than 60 minutes. They came out on top, so that says a lot about how tough this football team is.” Unlike some other potential visitors to New England, any weather issues won’t bother the Ravens, either. Hey, after subzero wind-chill numbers at Denver last weekend, Baltimore will consider just about anything balmy. The oddsmakers believe the home-field advantage is substantial for the Patriots, who are 9-point favorites. They’ll gladly accept those points before kickoff. “It’s good that we get to stay home but once you get out there on the field, you have two teams going at it, all playing for one common goal,” Patriots safety Devin McCourty said. “I don’t care where you play; it’s not going to change how one team comes out. Just because you’re at home doesn’t mean you’re going to be more prepared than the team that’s on the road. “I think the team we’re playing now shows that. They’ve won a lot of road playoff games over the last couple years, so I don’t think the home-field advantage will really be that much of a difference as far as ‘since we’re at home, we’re going to win.’ “But as a player, you always love playing in front of your fans.”
that’s so ambiguous.” He’ll encourage them to settle on some well-defined goals — say, catching 50 balls before practice, 50 during the workout and 50 afterward. Whatever works, make it a habit. And keep looking for ways to make the program even better. The 49ers (12-4-1) will have their hands full trying to defend everyone in what Gonzalez calls the PYP offense — Pick Your Poison. But the ageless tight end could be even more of a factor Sunday, facing a defense that doesn’t stray far from its base packages and relies heavily on its linebackers in coverage. As good as they are, Pro Bowlers Patrick Willis and Aldon Smith could have their hands full trying to cover Gonzalez, even if he has lost a step or two. “He’s still playing at a high level for them. He’s still making big plays for them,” Willis said. “He may not be as fast as he used to be but he’s really crafty and knows how to get open.” For Gonzalez, the idea of working harder than anyone else was instilled at an early age but the benefits of setting a routine became apparent in his second season with the Chiefs. Facing high expectations after moving into the starting lineup, he dropped 17 passes. He knew something had to change, so he started reading books on other great athletes, from Rice to Michael Jordan. His methods have sure paid off. Gonzalez has 1,242 receptions and 103 touchdown catches, sixth on the career list. This season, he led the Falcons with 93 receptions for 930 yards and eight touchdowns. Gonzalez was really at his best last week in the divisional playoff against Seattle. He made a brilliant touchdown catch in the back of the end zone, leaping up to snatch the ball away from a defender like the basketball player he was in college, boxing out for a rebound. He made a couple of other impressive grabs when it looked like he was completely covered. Finally, after the Falcons squandered a 20-point lead in the fourth quarter and seemed on the verge of handing Gonzalez another playoff loss, he hauled in a 19-yard pass, picking up a few extra yards with a nifty move after the catch, to set up Matt Bryant’s winning 49-yard field goal with just 8 seconds remaining. When it was done, Gonzalez broke down in tears — the first time he can ever remember crying after a win. Of course, he had never won in the playoffs, losing his first five tries. After waiting 16 years to get that first postseason victory, the idea of winning two more in the next three weeks doesn’t seem so farfetched. If that happens, Gonzalez sounds like any uncertainty over his planned retirement will surely be wiped away. “That’s the goal: win a championship and get out of here,” he added. “We’re right at the door. The door is opening for us. We’ve just got to push it open a little bit more.”

The Knights maintained their lead in the fourth quarter. The Lady Knights were led in scoring by Bauer, who had 17 points. Motycka was the only other Lady Knight in double figures with 13 points. The win improves the Lady Knights to 12-1 overall and keeps them perfect in the Northwest Conference with a 5-0 record. “I thought we played in streaks. Offensively I thought we played pretty well for four quarters but defensively, I thought we had some spells where we didn’t play very well,” said Crestview coach Greg
Rickard. “I thought the last quarter and a half we played well defensively but we had stretches where we allowed them to score in bunches and get back in the game. We have to make sure we clean that up.” Paulding was led in scoring by MuCullough and Pease, who both had eight points. The Lady Panthers fall to 4-9 on the season and 0-5 in the NWC. “It has been the same problem for us all season. We have been outrebounded in probably 90 percent of our games,” said Panther coach Lyndsi Schultz. “Coming in, we knew how strong
Crestview was inside but we just don’t have much size. There were a couple of times we were in perfect position but we just couldn’t stop them. They are an excellent team but we just didn’t respond like we needed to.” Crestview entertains St. John’s 6 p.m. Saturday.

Topical medications will treat daughter’s scabies
DEAR DOCTOR K: My daughter picked up scabies at her day care center. How should I treat it? And what can I do to make sure she doesn’t get infected again? DEAR READER: Scabies is a skin infestation by tiny, parasitic insects called mites. It causes intense itching. When a person catches scabies, female mites lay eggs in the person’s skin. The eggs hatch, mate and lay more eggs, continuing the cycle. Basically, the person is the new home for the scabies mites. The person’s skin becomes the “nest” where the mothers raise their babies. However, the mothers are not very loyal; they’re always looking for a new home. In other words, scabies is very contagious. Scabies mites can be spread by direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person. They can also be transmitted through clothing, blankets, sheets, towels or furniture that has touched an infected person’s skin. It’s common for kids to catch scabies in day care centers or schools, where they are in close contact with other kids. Your daughter’s doctor can perform various diagnostic tests. Usually, though, the visual appearance of the skin and the severe itching are the circumstantial evidence that leads to treatment. If there have been other cases of scabies in your daughter’s day care center, that makes the diagnosis even more likely. The doctor can prescribe various topical medications to apply to treat your daughter’s scabies. These include permethrin (Nix, Elimite), lindane (Kwell, Scabene) and crotamiton (Eurax). If your daughter is an infant or otherwise sensitive to these medications, her doctor may recommend sulfur in petroleum. Topical scabies medications should be applied from neck to toes after bathing, left on the skin for 8 to 14 hours, and then washed off. In some cases, a second

application may be necessary. Your daughter should stop being contagious within 24 hours, and her symptoms should improve noticeably within two days. In the meantime, to help control her itching, apply calamine lotion. If itching keeps her awake, ask her pediatrician about giving her diphenhydramine (Benadryl) by mouth. This medicine can help her sleep and reduce the itching, but some pediatrician colleagues of mine don’t like to prescribe this medicine to kids younger than 4 years old. You and other family members must be treated for scabies as well, even if you don’t have any symptoms. That’s because some of the mothers may already have jumped to your skin and are in the process of laying the eggs that will make you itch in the future. In addition, you should wash all of your daughter’s clothing, bedding and towels in hot water and dry these items in a hot dryer. This should kill all scabies mites and eggs. Clothing that cannot be washed should be sealed and stored for one week. To help prevent your daughter from catching scabies again: -- Do not allow your daughter to share clothing or towels at her day care center. -- Provide a pillow and blanket from home that your daughter can use at the day care center.

The Herald – 9
SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 2013 Favors you do for others in the year ahead are likely to be paid back quite promptly and in great measure. If you try your best to be one of the good guys, you’ll end up being a huge winner in life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your associates might be inclined to hold back some good ideas if they sense you aren’t likely to appreciate them. Don’t be a know-it-all. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- A matter you’ve been anxious to finalize can be concluded, but not necessarily to the satisfaction of everyone involved. Some might feel there is still a leak in the bucket. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- In order for you to negotiate an important matter, some kind of compromise might have to be reached. If you take action, it won’t happen. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Two strong factors could affect your chances of success: One is a strong motivation for victory, and the other is a sense of adventure. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- At times, it seems like nothing ever changes. Those who are usually supportive of you will remain so, while those who tend to oppose you will be antagonistic once again. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Your chances for success look pretty good, provided that what needs to be done is finished quickly and with a nominal amount of effort. If more is required, you might not hold up. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you handle business matters well, chance will play a very small role in how your affairs play out. Be methodical and avoid taking foolish risks. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Provided you operate along traditional lines, the probabilities of generating favorable returns are pretty good. Should you be inclined to test out something new, everything becomes iffy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- In order to maintain good relationships with others today, you must be willing to give them the same freedom to operate independently as you want for yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Unexpected changes will work out to your ultimate advantage, provided you are flexible enough to accept them. Resist any urge to adjust events and control things. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Because you’ll automatically instill harmony and a spirit of cooperation, you’ll be a welcome addition to any group. Good things happen when everyone gets along. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You’ll have a great opportunity to accomplish much more than you originally anticipated, mostly because your industriousness will be challenged, and will rise to the occasion.

It might change her behavior, but if not, at least you won’t be there to listen to it. We also urge you to contact Adult Children of Alcoholics (adultchildren.org) for additional support. Dear Annie: A few days ago, I attended the wake of a good friend of 40 years. She was in her mid-50s and died unexpectedly. She left a 12-year-old daughter. As we arrived at the funeral home, we thought there was a line to sign in. Wrong. It turned out to be about 25

List America’s prominent evangelicals and the Rev. Rick Warren remains near the top, right up there with the Rev. Brian McLaren, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Jim Wallis, the Rev. Tim Keller and others. Evangelicals, of course, have been known to argue about who belongs on that list. In recent years, it has become increasingly obvious that the experts are struggling to decide who is and who is not an evangelical in the first place. “I know what the word ‘evangelical’ is supposed to mean,” said Warren, 58, leader of the 20,000-member Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., with its many branches and ministries. “I mean, I know what the word ‘evangelical’ used to mean.” The problem, he said, is that many Americans no longer link “evangelical” with a set of traditional doctrines, such as evangelizing the lost, defending biblical authority, helping the needy and proclaiming that salvation is found through faith in Jesus Christ alone. Somewhere during the George W. Bush years the word “evangelical” -- a churchhistory term -- “got co-opted into being a political term,” said Warren, in a recent telephone interview. Debates about this vague word are not

new. During a 1987 interview with the Rev. Billy Graham, I asked him point blank, “What does the word ‘evangelical’ mean?” The world’s most famous evangelist responded, “Actually, that’s a question I’d like to ask somebody, too. ... You go all the way from the extreme fundamentalists to the extreme liberals and, somewhere in between, there are the evangelicals.” Ultimately, Graham said “evangelicals” preach salvation through faith in Jesus and believe all the doctrines in the Nicene Creed -- especially in the resurrection. Warren said he would certainly agree with Graham’s bottom line, which is that “evangelical” must be defined in doctrinal terms. The problem is that this isn’t how the term is being used in public life, especially by the news media. During the George W. Bush administration, he said, most journalists “seemed to think that ‘evangelical’ meant that you backed the Iraq war, for some reason or another. ... But right now, I don’t think there is any question that most people think that evangelicals are people who oppose gay rights -- period. Unfortunately, that’s all the word means.” Warren based this judgment, in part, on his experiences during 22 recent interviews with major newspapers, magazines and television networks -- a blitz marking the release of an expanded, 10th anniversary edition of his book “The Purpose Driven Life: What On Earth Am I Here For?” The book has sold more than 32 million copies around the world, with translations in 50 languages. By the end of that media storm, Warren said members of his team were starting to place bets before each interview on whether the perfunctory gay-marriage question would be the first, or the second, question asked. On CNN, interviewer Piers Morgan noted that the U.S. Constitution and the Bible are “well-intentioned” but “inherently flawed.” Morgan continued: “My point to you about gay rights for example -- it’s time for an amendment to the Bible.” Warren, of course, disagreed: “I do not believe the Bible is flawed, and I willingly admit ... that I base my worldview on the Bible, which I believe is true, and truth. ... It was true 1,000 years ago, it’ll be true 1,000 years from today.” Time after time, said Warren, interviewers assumed that his beliefs on moral and cultural issues -- from salvation to sexual ethics -- were based on mere politics, rather than on convictions about the Bible and

centuries of doctrine. “I’ve decided that when people don’t have faith, politics is their religion,” he said. “Politics is the only thing that is really real to many people in our world today. ... So if politics isn’t at the center of your life, then many people just can’t understand what you’re saying.” In the end, said Warren, it may be time for various brands of conservative Protestants -- Baptists, Charismatics, Wesleyans, Pentecostals, Calvinists and others -- to stop trying to crowd under a common “evangelical” umbrella. They need to start talking more about the specific traditions that shape their lives. “Maybe ‘evangelical’ will be like the word ‘liberal,’” he said. “When that word turned into a negative, everybody on the left just turned into ‘progressives’ and they moved right on. ... Maybe it’s time to give the word ‘evangelical’ a rest.”
