www.delphosherald.com By BARRY WILNER The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — For a Super Bowl with so many story lines, this game came up with quite a twist. Try a blackout that turned a blowout into a shootout — capped by a brilliant defensive stand. The Baltimore Ravens survived a frenzied comeback by the San Francisco 49ers following a 34-minute delay in the third quarter for a power outage Sunday night, winning their second championship 34-31. Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco threw three first-half touchdown passes, Jacoby Jones ran back the second-half kickoff a record 108 yards for a score and star linebacker Ray Lewis’ last play fittingly was part of a defensive effort that saved the victory. “To me, that was one of the most amazing goalline stands I’ve ever been a part of in my career,” said Lewis, who announced a month ago he would retire when the Ravens were done playing. They are done now, with another Vince Lombardi Trophy headed for the display case. “What better way to do it,” Lewis said, “than on

“last ride.” But when the Superdome lost power, well, that wasn’t in anyone’s scenario. Flacco and the Ravens (14-6) were turning the game into a rout, leading 28-6 when, without even a flicker of warning, several banks of lights and the scoreboards went dark. Players from both sides stretched and chatted with each other in as bizarre a scene as any Super Bowl has witnessed. “The bad part was we started talking about it,” said safety Ed Reed, who had the game’s only interception. “That was mentioned. It was like they were trying to kill our momentum.” After power was restored, the 49ers began playing lights out. San Francisco (13-5-1), in search of its sixth Lombardi Trophy in as many tries, got back in the game almost immediately. Michael Crabtree’s 31-yard touchdown reception, on which he broke two tackles, made it 28-13. A few minutes later, Frank Gore’s 6-yard run followed a 32-yard punt return by Ted Ginn Jr. to put the 49ers within eight. See SUPER, page 8

Schools, tax changes ahead in Kasich budget
By JULIE CARR SMYTH The Associated Press COLUMBUS — The two-year state operating budget that Ohio Gov. John Kasich unveils today will contain a host of big policy changes, including his recently released school-funding plan, a decision on whether to expand Medicaid and a package of tax policy changes likely to include a hike for oil and gas drillers. Since Kasich introduced his first budget, the state’s fiscal picture has improved significantly. Fellow Republicans control both the Ohio House and Ohio Senate. But none of that will prevent a vigorous debate. A major element of the proposal is the school funding overhaul that Kasich announced last week, which boosts K-12 education dollars by $1.2 billion compared with the previous two-year budget. The plan includes a host of contentious policy changes, including expansion of vouchers for students in low-performing districts. Kasich said the spending increase was made possible through revenue growth, including from expanded gambling. If Kasich opts to accept federal aid and expand Medicaid, as many expect he will, he’ll need to persuade fellow Republicans who opposed the federal health care overhaul to support the move. Kasich has already begun making the case that accepting Medicaid dollars available under the overhaul is not the same as endorsing what he referred to as “Obamacare.” “Obamacare, you know, involving an indi-

vidual mandate, I don’t support,” he said during a Thursday legislative preview session for journalists organized by The Associated Press. “… But this is a different issue. This is about people who are at the lower economic end.” The federal government will pay the cost of the Medicaid expansion for the first three years, which Kasich has hinted could allow Ohio to spend in other areas without raising taxes. A town hall on tax cuts that Kasich has scheduled to follow today’s budget unveiling suggests that his budget package will reflect an overall reduction in taxes, which could go a long way to bringing reticent Republicans on board. Kasich campaigned in 2010 on a pledge to reduce Ohio’s income tax and, with re-election just a year away, this budget is where that will need to happen. Kasich has said he’ll bring back a proposed severance tax increase on high-volume oil and natural gas drillers in this budget, which he’s linked in the past to a modest statewide income-tax cut. That proposal has been divisive, as areas of the state benefiting from the oil and gas boom complain that money from it should stay in their communities. Advocates for Ohio’s Future, a coalition of groups representing the poor, disabled, and elderly, anticipated in a Friday teleconference that Kasich’s budget would also expand the state’s safety net — though perhaps not to the extent they would prefer.

Ministerial Association sets Lenten service/lunch schedule
Abbey Meyer, a sixth-grader from St. John’s Elementary, was eliminated on the word “bungalow.” Lent is early this year and the Delphos Ministerial Association will once again hold its annual Lenten Lunch Program on Thursdays from Feb. 14 through March 21 at Trinity United Methodist Church. Lent is a time for prayerful reflection as many look to the cross in order to prepare hearts for the death and resurrection of Jesus. This year, the association will follow the theme “Facing the Cross.” Luke 9:51 says that when Jesus’ days drew near for Him to leave this earth, Jesus “set his face” to Jerusalem to encounter the pain of the cross on his flock’s behalf. Each week, the Lenten series will look at life situations everyone faces. The first will be held at 11:45 a.m. Feb. 14. The Rev. David Howell will present the devotional for the day. Rev. Howell will look at the theme of “Facing The Cross: Facing Our Sins,” based on Romans 3:23-24. The goal is to come to terms with sinfulness and rejoice in Christ’s forgiveness.

Mostly cloudy Tuesday with snow likely in the afternoon. Snow accumulation around 1 inch. Highs in the upper 20s. Mostly cloudy Tuesday night with a 30 percent chance of snow showers through midnight. Lows 15 to 20. See page 2.


Lunch, fellowship and spiritual encouragement begin at noon at Trinity United Methodist Church. Other dates in the Lenten series are: Feb. 21 — The Rev.

Ex-Navy SEAL died pursuing his passion
BY JAMIE STENGLE and CHRISTOPHER SHERMAN The Associated Press STEPHENVILLE, Texas — The former top Navy SEAL sniper who authorities say was killed at a Texas shooting range was devoted to maintaining camaraderie and helping his fellow veterans find their way after leaving active duty. Chris Kyle, author of the best-selling book “American Sniper,” and his friend Chad Littlefield apparently were doing just that Saturday when, officials say, they were shot and killed by former Marine Eddie Ray Routh. Kyle, 38, had left the Navy in 2009 after four tours of duty in Iraq, where he earned a reputation as one of the military’s most lethal snipers. But he quickly found a way to maintain contact with his fellow veterans and pass on what had helped him work through his own struggles. By late 2011, he filed the paperwork to establish the nonprofit FITCO Cares, which received its nonprofit status the following spring, said FITCO director Travis Cox. “Chris struggled with some things,” Cox said. “He’d been through a lot and he handled it with grace, but yeah he did struggle with some things. And he found a healthy outlet and was proac-

tive in his approach to deal with those issues and wanted to help spread his healing, what worked for him, to others. And that’s what he died doing.” For Kyle that healthy outlet was exercise. At the heart of FITCO was giving in-home fitness equipment to physically and emotionally wounded veterans, as well as families who had lost a veteran, Cox said. Littlefield, a 35-year-old friend and neighbor, was Kyle’s “workout buddy,” and also volunteered his time to work with veterans, Cox said. He was married and had children as well. See SNIPER, page 2

8 killed in Calif. bus crash of Mexican day skiers
BY TAMI ABDOLLAH The Associated Press YUCAIPA, Calif. — At least eight people were killed and 38 injured Sunday when a tour bus careened out of control while traveling down a Southern California mountain road, struck a car, flipped and plowed into a pickup truck, authorities said. The accident occurred around 6:30 p.m. about 80 miles east of Los Angeles and left State Route 38 littered with debris, the bus sideways across the two lanes and its front end crushed. Emergency crews worked to free passengers who were trapped in the bus, which was returning to Tijuana, Mexico, said California Highway Patrol spokesman Mario Lopez. The violence of the crash and severity of the injuries made for a chaotic scene, and authorities had a difficult time determining how many people were injured or killed. Lopez said at least eight and perhaps 10 were dead, and 38 transported to hospitals. California Department of Transportation spokeswoman Michelle Profant said the scene was shocking. “It’s really a mess up there with body parts,” she said. The bus driver survived and told investigators the bus suffered brake problems as it headed down the mountain, Lopez said. It rear-ended a sedan and flipped, then struck a pickup truck pulling a trailer. Lettering on the bus indicated that it was operated by Scapadas Magicas LLC, a company based in National City, Calif. Federal transportation records show that the company is licensed to carry passengers for interstate travel and that it had no crashes in the past two years. A call to the company was not immediately returned. Jordi Garcia, a manager for InterBus Tours, said his company ran Sunday’s trip. He told U-T San Diego that 38 people departed Tijuana at 5 a.m. for a day of skiing at

Experts find remains of England’s King Richard III
LEICESTER, England (AP) — He wore the English crown, but he ended up defeated, humiliated and reviled. Now things are looking up for King Richard III. Scientists announced today that they had found the monarch’s 500-yearold remains under a parking lot in the city of Leicester — a discovery Richard’s fans say will inspire new research into his maligned history. University of Leicester researchers say tests on a battlescarred skeleton unearthed last year prove “beyond reasonable doubt” that it is the king, who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, and whose remains have been missing for centuries. said study of the bones provided “a highly convincing case for identification of Richard III.” The Plantagenets were a royal dynasty whose strongtempered rulers conquered Wales, battled France, and help transform England into a thriving medieval kingdom. The last of the dynasty, Richard III was also the last English monarch to die in battle, immortalized by William Shakespeare as a hunchbacked usurper who left a trail of bodies — including those of his two princely nephews, murdered in the Tower of London — on his way to the throne. DNA from the skeleton matched a sample taken from a distant living relative of Richard’s sister. Geneticist Turi King said Michael Ibsen, a Canadian carpenter living in London, shares with the skeleton a rare strain of mitochondrial DNA. She said combined with the archaeological evidence, that left little doubt the skeleton belonged to Richard.

Big Bear. “The information that we have is that the bus’ brakes failed and the accident occurred,” he said. Route 38 runs through the San Bernardino National Forest and leads to Big Bear. The accident occurred as the bus was headed south and leaving the forest. Patients were taken to several area hospitals with injuries ranging from minor to life-threatening. Among them, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center said it had treated six people, including two women who were discharged early today. The hospital said two other women were in critical condition while two other patients were stable. The California crash comes less than a day after a bus carrying 42 high school students and their chaperones slammed into an overpass in Boston. Massachusetts state police said 35 people were injured and that the driver had directed the bus onto a road with a height limit.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A small-business grant program has been designed to attract retailers and restaurants to fill empty storefronts in a pair of historic downtown Cleveland arcades. The Charter One Foundation, part of the charitable arm of RBS Citizens Financial Group Inc., is working to repopulate the renamed 5th Street Arcades. The contest coincides with a Cleveland developer’s push to remake the vacancy-plagued Colonial and Euclid arcades, built respectively in 1898 and 1911, The Plain Dealer reported. Retailers wanting to open or expand in the arcades in the area once known as the Colonial Marketplace can vie for grants of $1,500 to $20,000, with grant applications due by March 1. But the winning retailers won’t automatically receive grants. They will have to continue to a second round involving a 30-day public fundraising campaign. The final winners and grant amounts will be announced in late April or early May. Developer Dick Pace, who leased the retail space covering about 60,000 square feet last year and moved his Cumberland Development company into the complex, and the Downtown Cleveland Alliance invited young professionals and downtown residents to a September meeting to come up with suggestions for new tenants. The property re-christened the 5th Street Arcades has picked up a few new tenants, including a chocolate shop and a holiday pop-up gallery, and Pace is offering reduced rent to startup companies. “We’ve attracted a handful of startup tenants, and we’ve got the place starting

Dayton: handguns over assault weapons
DAYTON (AP) — Authorities in one Ohio city are more concerned about large-capacity magazines than assault weapons that are the subject of debate in Washington. Last year there were 27 homicides in Dayton, with handguns the preferred weapon and just one case involving an assault rifle. Most of the handguns had large-capacity magazines. The sheriff in Montgomery County, which includes Dayton, says it has investigated more homicides involving frying pans in the past three years than assault weapons. According to the Dayton Daily News (bit.ly/ YuyMPS), the most popular tool for killers in Dayton is a semi-automatic hand-

to feel vibrant,” Pace said. With a few new stores and some deals in progress, Pace said he is negotiating with 10 tenants, including a small market that would sell fresh produce .New outdoor signs and more comfortable seating are expected to be added in two months. Officials from Charter One and the Downtown Cleveland Alliance expect their grant contest to build on Pace’s resident-driven, incubator approach. A successful startup strategy might provide one solution for other strips of vacant retail space in the downtown area that has struggled to attract and retain stores. Ken Marblestone, president of Charter One and RBS Citizens in Ohio, said in a statement that the collaboration will “accelerate retail development and bring needed retail services to the city.”

TALLMADGE (AP) — Some of the hundreds of people who turned out at a northeast Ohio arena to buy, sell and trade guns over the weekend said they feared more government control over firearms. The attraction was the Ohio Gun, Knife and Military Show at the Summit County Fairgrounds in Tallmadge. Many there said the talk about gun control after the tragedy at Newtown, Conn., has become a political obsession and no additional laws are necessary. The Akron Beacon Journal reports that some of the sellers posted fliers asking gun owners to call their legislators to oppose any new gun regulations. Countering that effort was a similar call that went out this weekend from religious leaders across the nation encouraging people to call their legislators seeking support for additional gun-control legislation.

gun — mostly 9mm and .40 caliber pistols — which were used in 24 shootings last year. Four revolvers and one semi-automatic rifle were used. The weapon in one shooting is still being investigated. Three people were beaten to death last year, and one was killed with a knife. A 2004 study commissioned by the U.S. Department of Justice found that assault weapons were used in about 2 percent of gun crimes, according to most studies, and no more than 8 percent. The federal study found that up to 26 percent of gun crimes involved the use of a large-capacity magazine, defined as holding more than 10 rounds.

Obama to campaign for gun proposals in Minnesota
By JULIE PACE The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The fate of his gun proposals on Capitol Hill uncertain, President Barack Obama is seeking to rally support from the public and law enforcement community for his calls to ban assault weapons and install universal background checks for gun buyers. Obama will pitch his proposals to stem gun violence today in Minnesota, a Democratic-leaning state where officials have been studying ways to reduce gun-related attacks and accidents for several years. His visit to the Minneapolis Police Department’s Special Operations Center will mark the first time Obama has campaigned on his controversial proposals outside of Washington. Ahead of the trip, the White House released a photo of the president skeet shooting at Camp David, the presidential retreat. Obama cited skeet shooting when asked in a recent interview whether he had ever shot a gun. The president unveiled his sweeping package of proposals for curbing gun violence last month in response to the horrific mass shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school. He vowed to use the full weight of his office to fight for the proposals, many of which face tough opposition from congressional lawmakers and the powerful National Rifle Association. The reinstatement of the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004, is expected to be the steepest climb for Obama. Universal background checks for gun purchasers may have an easier time passing Congress, though the NRA also opposes that measure. Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., has said he hopes his panel can write gun legislation this month, though it’s unclear what it will contain. The White House picked Minneapolis as the backdrop for Obama’s remarks in part because of recent steps the city has taken to tackle gun

Civil rights lawyers: NYPD spying violates rules

By EILEEN SULLIVAN The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The New York Police Department’s focus on Muslims has renewed the political surveillance of the 1960s and ‘70s that was banned under a landmark legal ruling, according to a new court filing by civil rights lawyers. They are seeking an injunction against further surveillance of Muslims without evidence of crimes and a new court-appointed auditor to oversee police activities. Describing continuing surveillance of Muslims as “widespread and intense,” the civil rights lawyers complained that the NYPD has monitored public places where Muslims eat, shop and worship and has kept records and notes about police observations despite any evidence of unlawful or terror-related activities. The lawyers said the NYPD’s actions violate rules, known as the Handschu guidelines, that a court had imposed as part of a 1985 landmark settlement with the NYPD to a lawsuit they filed. “There is substantial persuasive evidence that the defendants are conducting investigations into organizations and individuals associated with the Muslim faith and the Muslim community in New York, and have been doing so for years, using intrusive methods, without a reasonable indication of unlawful activity, or a criminal predicate of any sort,” the lawyers wrote in a motion to be filed today in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. They said the NYPD’s actions were so “flagrant and persistent” that an auditor should be appointed. A spokesman for the NYPD did not respond to a phone message and email request for comment from The Associated Press.

Immigration bill splits GOP on national-local line
By CHARLES BABINGTON The Associated Press On the other hand, converting millions of illegal Hispanic residents into citizens might produce large numbers of new voters who will lean Democratic for years. “This is a perilous debate that Republicans have entered into,” said John Ullyot, a Republican consultant and a former Senate aide. Obama won 71 percent of the Hispanic vote last November and 67 percent in 2008. GOP campaign professionals say Republicans are dooming themselves if they don’t show a more welcoming face to this fast-growing segment of voters. “Republicans need to solve this issue, politically, if they wish to win national elections, and they know it,” said Texasbased GOP consultant Matt Mackowiak. Winning House elections, however, is a different matter. A number of Republican lawmakers and aides say “amnesty” for illegal immigrants triggers strong resentment among their constituents. The upcoming debates could stir passions further, even in swing districts. Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, lost his Cincinnatiarea seat to a Democrat in 2008, then regained it two years later. He opposes giving illegal immigrants an eventual route to citizenship. “It is unfair to allow those who have willfully and intentionally broken our nation’s immigration laws to, in essence, cut in front of those who have

violence, including a push for stricter background checks. After a spike in violent crimes, the city launched a program in 2008 aimed at providing more resources for at-risk youth and helping rehabilitate young people who have already perpetrated crimes. In January, Minneapolis also hosted a regional summit on gun violence for elected officials from around the Midwest. Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau and Hennepin County Sheriff Richard Stanek are also among the officials Obama has consulted as he pursues his anti-gun violence measures. Stanek has also been leading a group of Minnesota sheriffs pushing for stronger background checks for people trying to buy guns. Obama is expected to make more trips around the country to build support for his anti-gun violence measures. The outside group Organizing For Action, an offshoot of Obama’s presidential campaign, is also promoting the proposals.

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON — Polling that shows Americans favor women in combat by 2-to-1 is evidence only of the power of misinformation. And, yes, indoctrination. Arguments favoring women in direct combat are perhaps well-intentioned, focusing on fairness, opportunity and pride in certain women’s abilities. Unfortunately, most people who make those arguments are operating on false assumptions. And, shall we say, mis-truths. It’s not their fault. For the past several decades, the media and popular culture have relentlessly advanced the fantasy narrative of women as groin-kicking, martial-arts divas of doom. Where are all the brave men and women who know better? Would that Congress could stop preening for cameras long enough to examine the issue more closely. Democrats may be merely falling in line with their commander in chief, but Republicans seem to be suffering Stockholm syndrome. They’ve been slapped around for so long, they’ve become sympathetic to their captors. The two most popular arguments for inclusion of women in combat would be valid if only they weren’t incorrect. They are: (1) Only qualified women will be included in combat units; (2) We have a volunteer military

Combat women and Congress’ wimps

WASHINGTON — The immigration debate is threatening to split the Republican Party, pitting those who focus mainly on presidential elections against those who care mostly about congressional races. Strategists say that if Republicans are to win presidential elections, which they’ve been losing lately, partly because of dismal support from Hispanic voters, they must soften their rhetoric about illegal immigrants and embrace some version of “immigration reform.” But granting illegal residents a path to citizenship, which critics call “amnesty,” is deeply unpopular in many House Republicans’ districts. President Barack Obama wants such a pathway. So do some prominent GOP lawmakers who are seeking a way out of their party’s jam. The plans differ on when and how citizenship might occur, with border security a central issue. Resolving these differences may determine whether a major law is enacted in the coming months. Some GOP strategists fear they will lose either way. If by the next election Latino voters think Republicans opposed and possibly blocked a comprehensive immigration overhaul, they might turn against the party in even bigger numbers.

been patiently and legally waiting their turn to become U.S. citizens,” Chabot wrote on his House blog. Republicans should appeal to Hispanic voters “on principle,” he said, not by agreeing to liberal immigration policies. “Republicans are better for Hispanics because our policies are better for them,” Chabot said. Republican leaders hope to minimize internal conflicts by finding a compromise that Obama and the Democraticcontrolled Senate will accept. A bipartisan group of senators has proposed a plan that would allow illegal immigrants to pursue citizenship only after steps, yet to be detailed, are taken to further secure the border with Mexico. The plan is backed by Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., whose parents were born in Cuba. He is seen as leading player on immigration. Some other high-profile conservatives, including Fox News’ Sean Hannity and the 2012 GOP vice presidential nominee, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, have spoken favorably about Rubio’s approach. Democrats insist that the border security prerequisites not be onerous. They worry that Republicans will never agree that border enforcement is strong enough to start the citizenship process for illegal immigrants. Similarly, some Republicans say they fear Democrats won’t deliver tougher security once illegal immigrants are allowed the first step toward legal status.

Point of View
and, therefore, only those who want to serve in combat will. It is certainly true that some women are more fit than some men, but it is also true that most aren’t as capable of becoming as strong as most men. As I’ve written before, women have just about half the upper body strength as men, which is serious business when you’re hiking with a 65-pound (and often heavier) load on your back or hoisting a wounded comrade. It is no coincidence that stress fractures are significantly higher among female recruits than among males during basic training. This is no insult to women. We’re talking about muscle mass that comes with the packaging and has nothing to do with how many times a week ones goes to the gym. (Or how ripped Demi Moore gets for a movie.) It’s more than clear, meanwhile, that physical standards would be lowered to allow women where they don’t belong. We know this because Gen. Martin Dempsey, chair-

man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, recently said as much: “If we do decide that a particular standard is so high that a woman couldn’t make it, the burden is now on the service to come back and explain to the secretary, why is it that high? Does it really have to be that high?” Translation: If women can’t meet the standards, we’ll just “gender-norm” them. As to whether this is good for our military effectiveness, one can only hope that our enemies are of like mind. One rather doubts it. As for our all-volunteer military, this is true as far as it goes. In fact, men do not have the option of declining combat. How can the military justify giving women special treatment? Letting women, but not men, choose whether to enter combat duty likely would cause deep resentment among male soldiers. To make life more fair and allow both sexes to choose would be, as military sociologist Charles Moskos once put it, “the end of an effective military force.” Similarly, there could be no excluding women should a military draft be reinstated. This is unlikely in the near future — Rep. Charles Rangel’s regular call for a mandatory draft notwithstanding. Baby boomers who recall the Vietnam draft

likely would protest. But others with dimmer memories — or a younger generation that has been marinated in the anything-boys-can-dogirls-can-do-better dogma of feminist wishful thinking — might find a draft more … egalitarian. Indeed, it would be. Once women are placed in direct combat roles (as opposed to finding themselves in a combat arena), there may be no justification for excluding them from registering for the Selective Service. The argument against drafting women was always predicated in part upon women’s exclusion from combat. Women have performed admirably throughout history in a variety of roles that have included combat situations, which is not the same as directly engaging an enemy. But there are other ways to promote women without pitting them against men, who, if women are given special treatment, will resent them to the endangerment of all. That our Congress is accepting this change without any debate isn’t progress. It is a dereliction of duty and, one is tempted to say, suggestive of cowardice.

Jays use balance, Panthers secure NWC mat crown rebounding to down Lancers
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com MIDDLE POINT — St. John’s used strong rebounding and balanced scoring to down host Lincolnview 70-45 in non-conference boys hardwood action Saturday night on Farmers’ Night at the Lancerdome of Lincolnview H i g h School. The Blue Jays (12-4) owned the glass 42-17 (17-4 offensive) and received doubledoubles from senior Bockey Curtis Geise (19 markers, 11 boards) and senior Ryan Buescher (14 and 12, to go with four assists and four steals). Senior Seth Bockey added 15 markers and junior Ryan Koester 11 as the Jays shot 52.9 percent. “We came out with a lot of energy and with an aggressive mindset. We were not only attacking the glass off the dribble drive and the pass but for second and third shots,” St. John’s coach Aaron Elwer noted. “We didn’t always finish but we got a lot of opportunities. We won our second game in a row on the road, especially coming off a tough game at Marion Local the night before, so that is a good sign.” For Lincolnview coach Brett Hammons, rebounding was the key. “We gave up way too many second shots; the stats don’t lie. I thought we did OK defending the first shot but not the extra ones,” Hammons said. “You cannot give good teams that many extra chances at the basket; they will make you pay every time.” Junior Kyle Williams was the lone Lancer in twin digits with 20 (5 treys). The Jays came out attacking the offensive glass early, getting eight in the first period, with Buescher getting four of his eight first-period rebounds on the offensive end. Thus, they overcame 4-of-14 shooting. When Koester hit a trey off the opening possession just 18 ticks into the contest, the Jays never trailed. They scored the first nine points before a Williams trey at 5:23 got the Lancers (7-11) on the board. They rallied within 13-8 when senior Brooks Ludwig hit a pair of freebies with 56.4 ticks on the board. After Bockey opened the second frame with a basket at 6:50, a triple-and-1 play from senior Kade Carey at 6:15 brought the Lancers within 15-14. That is as close as they could get the rest of the night. A Geise single at 5:53 started a 21-9 closing run — with Bockey pacing the way with six points, Geise five and Buescher four — culminated by a Bockey putback at the 30-second mark, to make it 36-23. Lincolnview was 5-of-8 from beyond the arc in the first half to stay close but turned it over 11 times (15 total). The 3-pointers didn’t drop for Lincolnview in the third like they did the first half, though they finished the game 10-of-18 for 55.6 percent (14of-41 overall for 34.1%). That enabled the Jays to begin to open up the game. With Geise taking over early in the third canto, scoring nine, and the balanced crew doing the rest, the Blue Jays built a 55-30 edge on a steal and layin by Buescher at the horn. St. John’s was 8-of-13 shooting in the period to Lincolnview’s 3-of-11. The Jays’ lead reached as high as 29 in the finale as both benches emptied and the deeper reserves saw varsity playing time. St. John’s netted 11-of-19 from the line (57.9%); and amassed 14 errors and 14 fouls. Sophomore Evan Hays dealt five dimes.

We were too aggresLIMA — Paulding’s wrestlers barely edged Spencerville 256-254 in Saturday’s Northwest Conference meet held inside Msgr. E.C. Herr Gymnasium at Lima Central Catholic. LCC was third with 225 points, with Columbus Grove fourth (199), Jefferson fifth (197), Bluffton 174, Allen East 147, Lincolnview 124 and Ada 116.5. Local champions include Lincolnview’s Jaquobe Markward (113); Jefferson’s Colin McConnahea (195 pounds), Chris Truesdale (145) and Geoff Ketcham (285); and Spencerville’s Trevor Bockey (132). Runners-up are Lincolnview’s Doug Hicks (170); Jefferson’s Quinten Wessell (220); and Spencerville’s Derrick Smith (126), Cory Binkley (138) and Jake Bellows (285). For almost every coach at this time of year, it’s about getting the injured healthy and keeping those active that way. Take, for instance, Jefferson coach Mike Wilson. “We only had seven wrestlers available today because of injuries and such. We still had a pretty good day with three titles and a runnerup,” he explained. “I really thought Chris did very well at 145; that was a nice surprise. He beat (Jacob) Garmatter from Bluffton in the finals.” With a tri-match at Defiance Thursday and the sectionals in two weeks, Wilson knows what has to happen. “We need to get those guys back and I think everyone will be back by then. How quickly they can get up to speed will be key because we plan to get better,” Wilson added. “We also have to work on our conditioning; I noticed our guys seemed pretty tired at the end of the day. Quinten and Colin were out for three weeks with skin issues and they really were gassed by the end of their matches. They will get better as they get back in shape. We really can’t teach them much anymore; now it’s conditioning and details.” Spencerville coach Tom Wegesin feels things are going according to plan. “This is what we work for all year; this time of year. We want to be nearing our peak right now and we are,” Wegesin added. “We are getting there but we still have a lot to work on yet; that is good because it means we can get better as we move on because we have to.” His team started well, struggled in the middle rounds but still registered some quality wins and matches along the way. “Like at heavyweight I knew it would be a heck of a match between Jake and Ketcham. They have already gone at it five times and likely will see it each a few more times down the road,” Wegesin added. “At this point, it’s all about the little details that decide wins and losses, whether you move on or not. That will be our focus Tuesday night (at home versus St. John’s and Parkway) and at practice the next two weeks until sectionals.”

Megan Maag hit six shots from the field to account for her team-high 12 points for the hosts, Keri Conine added nine and Hunter Hermiller drained two 3-pointers and a deuce for eight markers. The LadyCats were led by Jackie Gardner, who connected on two long-range shots as well as a couple from inside the line and at the line for 12 markers. Brittany Kahle added nine and Amy Smith had eight in the effort.

DELPHOS — Versailles swept both host St. John’s and Coldwater Saturday morning/ afternoon at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium to grab the Midwest Athletic Conference team wrestling title on Senior Day for the Blue Jays. Senior Will Buettner won the individual title by pinning both his opponents: Corey Selhorst from Coldwater (1:32) at 182 and Brett Gigandet of Versailles (:28) at 170. The other seniors are Luke Wrasman and Aaron Wrasman, both presently injured. As well, the coaches: head man Derek Sterling and assistants Jeff Fritz, Bill Kramer, Keith Buettner and Scott Miller; were also honored. “We’re banged up right now. A couple of the guys could have wrestled today but they might not have been back enough and we want to get them as healthy as we can before they wrestle again,” Sterling said. “Hopefully, outside of one or two — Aaron had knee surgery Friday — they should all be back for sectionals in two weeks.

The Delphos Herald zsportslive@yahoo.com CONTINENTAL — The Columbus Grove Bulldogs rode two different spurts of 7-0 and 8-0 in the first half to take a 32-17 halftime lead at the Pirates Cove in their Putnam County League contest against the Continental Pirates. The home team was celebrating Homecoming and nearly made it a contest in the second half; however, the Bulldogs held on to spoil the festivities with a 53-40 victory. Will Vorhees led all scorers with 23 points; the junior collected 15 points in the first half and hit 6-of-6 from the foul line in the final period. “Will is a good foul shooter; he is at about 80 percent. He has gotten to that for us before; he is the guy that you want at the foul line for us,” Grove coach Ryan Stechschulte stated. The guests shot 12-of-16 from the field in the first half but were held to just five baskets in the second half, all coming in the third period. The saving grace for Columbus Grove came in building a big lead early and connecting on 10-of-12 from the charity stripe in the fourth quarter. Tyler Dockery led the comeback attempt for the Pirates, hitting four 3-pointers and 14 points in the effort.

The Pirates scored the first basket of the game but Columbus Grove answered back by scoring 15 of the next 17 points, taking a 15-4 lead after the first stop. Collin Grothaus and Blake Hoffman both hit longrange shots in the frame. Columbus Grove came out in the second quarter, picking up where they left off in the previous eight minutes as Jayce Darbyshire drained a three early on. Moments later, Vorhees hit three consecutive buckets from the baseline and with 1:14 to go in the half, the Bulldogs had See ROUNDUP, page 8

(Continued from Page 7) built up a 32-12 advantage. Dockery connected on an NBA 3-pointer at the buzzer, sending the Pirates into the locker room with a shade of momentum. However, that didn’t matter much to the guests they built the lead back up to 20 in the third canto. Derek Rieman (7 points) banked a shot in from the left side and Brady Shafer gave the visitors their biggest lead of the game at 43-21. Heading into the final period, it would have been easy for the Pirates just to pack it in but that wasn’t on their minds. Continental held the Bulldogs to no baskets from the field in the last eight minutes and got back to within single digits. Dockery hit a pair of triples in the stanza; Tyler Rue (9


Ray Rice’s fumble at his 24 led to David Akers’ 34-yard field goal but Baltimore woke up for a long drive leading to rookie Justin Tucker’s 19-yard field goal. San Francisco wasn’t done challenging, though, and Kaepernick’s 15-yard TD run, the longest for a quarterback in a Super Bowl, made it 31-29. A 2-point conversion pass failed when the Ravens blitzed. Tucker added a 38-yarder with 4:19 remaining, setting up the frantic finish. Kaepernick couldn’t get the 49ers into the end zone on the final three plays. The last was a pass into the right corner of the end zone to Crabtree that involved some incidental bumping. Jim Harbaugh insisted a flag should have been thrown. Ravens punter Sam Koch took a safety for the final score with 4 seconds left. Koch’s free kick was returned by Ginn to midfield as time ran out. “How could it be any other way? It’s never pretty. It’s never perfect. But it’s us,” John Harbaugh said of his Ravens. “It was us today.” Barely. “Yeah, I think that last drive when we got the ball and had time to go down and score a touchdown,” Kaepernick said, “we thought it was our game.” But the championship is Baltimore’s.

ed him to the MVP award. “They have to give it to one guy and I’m not going to complain that I got it,” Flacco said. John Harbaugh had no complaints about getting that other trophy named after that Green Bay coach. But he struggled to balance it with the disappointment his brother was feeling. “The meeting with Jim in the middle was probably the most difficult thing I have ever been associated with in my life,” the Ravens coach said. The wild scoring made this the second championship in the NFL’s 80-year title game history in which both teams scored at least 30 points. Pittsburgh’s 35-31 win over Dallas in 1979 was the other. The Ravens stumbled into the playoffs with four defeats in its last five regular-season games as Lewis recovered from a torn right triceps and Flacco struggled. Harbaugh even fired his offensive coordinator in December, a stunning move with the postseason so close. But that — and every other move Harbaugh, Flacco and the Ravens made since — were right on target. New Orleans native Jones, one of the stars in a double-overtime playoff win at Denver, seemed to put the game away with his record 108-yard sprint with the second-half kickoff. Soon after, the lights went out — and when they came back on, the Ravens were


almost powerless to slow the 49ers. Until the final moments. “The final series of Ray Lewis’ career was a goal-line stand,” Harbaugh added. Lewis was sprawled on all fours, face-down on the turf, after the end zone incompletion. “It’s no greater way, as a champ, to go out on your last ride with the men that I went out with, with my teammates,” Lewis added. “And you looked around this stadium and Baltimore! Baltimore! We coming home, baby! We did it!” Jim Harbaugh, the coach who turned around the Niners in the last two years and brought them to their first Super Bowl in 18 years, had seen his team make a similarly stunning comeback in the NFC championship at Atlanta but couldn’t finish it off against Baltimore. “Our guys battled back to get back in,” the 49ers coach added. “I thought we battled right to the brink of winning.” The 49ers couldn’t have been sloppier in the first half, damaging their chances with penalties — including one on their first play that negated a 20-yard gain — poor tackling and turnovers. Rookie LaMichael James fumbled at the Baltimore 25 to ruin an impressive drive and the Ravens converted that with Flacco’s 1-yard pass to Pitta for a 14-3 lead. On San Francisco’s next offensive play, Kaepernick threw behind Randy Moss and always dependable Reed

The Associated Press GOLF SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Phil Mickelson’s 5-iron shot sailed long and right on the par-3 seventh, stopping an inch from the fringe and leaving him in danger of losing at least a stroke to playing partner Brandt Snedeker. Mickelson ended up leaving Snedeker shaking his head and went on to complete a wire-to-wire victory Sunday in the Phoenix Open. Mickelson shot a 4-under 67 to finish at 28-under 256, two strokes off the PGA Tour record of 254 set by Tommy Armour III in the 2003 Texas Open. Fifty-five feet away, with a mound and a 20-foot swath of fringe between his ball and the hole, Mickelson decided to putt through the taller grass rather than chip over it. He had caddie Jim Mackay remove the flagstick so that it wouldn’t deflect the ball if it had too much speed, a move that proved wise when the ball raced into the cup. DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Stephen Gallacher holed an eagle on No. 16 and won the Dubai Desert Classic on Sunday, overcoming early jitters to beat playing partner Richard Sterne by three shots. Gallacher (71) finished with a 22-under total of 266 to take his second European Tour win and first since 2004. The 111th-ranked Scotsman had a 3-shot lead over Sterne at the start of the final round but 3-putted to bogey the first, then hit his drive far right and missed a 6-footer to drop a shot on the next hole. Sterne chipped to 2 feet on the second for a birdie and a share of the lead. GOLD COAST, Australia — Karrie Webb won her eighth Australian Ladies Masters title on Sunday, coming from two strokes behind in the final round with birdies on three of her last five holes for a 5-under-par 67 and a two-stroke victory. Webb finished with 13-under-par total of 203 in the 54-hole tournament, the season-opening event on the European Ladies Tour. Her eighth win in the same tournament matched the U.S. PGA Tour record of Sam Snead, who won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times. BASEBALL SOMERSET, N.J. — Earl Williams, the 1971 National League Rookie of the Year, died at home last week of acute myeloid leukemia. He was 64. Williams earned the 1971 rookie award after hitting 33 home runs with Atlanta. He hit 28 homers the next year, then was traded to Baltimore after the 1972 season in a multi-player deal that sent Davey Johnson to the Braves. Williams hit 138 career homers with 457 RBIs and batted .247. LOS ANGELES — Lavonne “Pepper” Paire-Davis, a star of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League in the 1940s and an inspiration for the central character in the movie “A League of Their Own,” died, her son said Sunday. Paire-Davis died of natural causes in the Van Nuys section of Los Angeles on Saturday, her son, William Davis, told The Associated Press. She was 88. Paire-Davis was a model for the character played by Geena Davis in the 1992 hit “A League of Their Own,” which starred Rosie O’Donnell, Madonna and Tom Hanks as the crusty manager who shouted the famous line, “there’s no crying in baseball!”

picked it off. A huge scuffle followed that brought both Harbaughs onto the field and saw both sides penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness. Reed, also a New Orleans native, tied the NFL record for postseason picks with his ninth. Baltimore didn’t pounce on that mistake for points. Instead, Tucker’s fake field goal run on fourth-and-9 came up a yard short when Chris Culliver slammed him out of bounds. The Ravens simply shrugged, forced a 3-and-out and then unleashed Jones deep. Just as he did to Denver, he flashed past the secondary and caught Flacco’s fling. He had to wait for the ball and fell to the ground to grab it, but was untouched by a Niner. Up he sprang, cutting left and using his speed to outrun two defenders to the end zone. Desperate for points, the 49ers completed four passes and got a 15-yard roughing penalty against Haloti Ngata, who later left with a knee injury. But again they couldn’t cross the goal line, Paul Kruger got his second sack of the half on third down, forcing a second field goal by Akers, from 27 yards. When Jones began the second half by sprinting up the middle virtually untouched — he is the second player with two TDs of 50 yards or more in a Super Bowl, tying Washington’s Ricky Sanders in 1988 — the rout was on. Then it wasn’t.

‘Warm Bodies’ heats up box office with $20 million
By JAKE COYLE The Associated Press NEW YORK — The lovestruck zombies of “Warm Bodies” swarmed the box office on Super Bowl weekend with a $20 million opening. On a weekend that Hollywood largely punts to football, the PG-13 film from Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment easily led the box office, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Super Bowl always means a significant slide in movie-going on Sunday — studios predict a decrease of as much as 70 percent from Saturday to Sunday — but “Warm Bodies” still lured many teenage fans. The film is about a zombie whose love for a human redeems him. Lionsgate, which also released the “Twilight” saga, is calling it a “rom-zom-com” for its mix of humor, romance and the supernatural. The film appealed particularly to females, who made up 60 percent of the audience. “They’ve definitely cracked the code on how to attract that teen audience with films like ‘The Hunger Games,’ ‘Twilight’ and something like ‘Warm Bodies,’ which definitely plays right into the sweet spot of that demographic,” says Hollywood.com box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian. David Spitz, executive vice president of Lionsgate, said the studio courted female teens with “Warm Bodies” by pairing its trailer with the last “Twilight” film, “Breaking Dawn, Part II.” Younger female audiences have some history of turning out on Super Bowl weekends. The most successful film released the weekend of the big game was in 2008, when “Hannah Montana and Miley

Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert” opened with $31.1 million. “There was just nothing in the marketplace like this,” said Spitz. “Is it more zombie horror? Is it more romantic comedy? Is it more comedy? It’s a mixture and that’s the reason why the film found an audience.” Action films continued to fare poorly in 2013, as Sylvester Stallone’s “Bullet to the Head” opened with just $4.5 million for Warner Bros. That meant his brawny cohort Arnold Schwarzenegger bested him when his “The Last Stand” opened with $7.2 million in January. But both openings were poor. Along with the weak performance of Jason Statham’s “Parker,” which has taken in $12.4 million in two weeks for FilmDistrict, moviegoers aren’t turning out for traditional R-rated action movies. That trend should reverse itself when Bruce Willis’ “A Good Day to Die Hard” opens Feb. 14, Dergarabedian said. Last week’s top film, Paramount’s “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters,” dropped to second with $9.2 million on the weekend. The other debut of note was Lionsgate’s “Stand Up Guys,” which stars Al Pacino and Christopher Walken as veteran gangsters on a last hurrah romp. Though it opened in limited release in 659 theaters, it took in just $1.5 million. The most Super Bowlappropriate film in theaters, the Oscar-nominated “Silver Linings Playbook,” continued to add to its stretchedout run for the Weinstein Co. The film, which centers on a family of diehard Philadelphia Eagles fans, came in third place, adding $8.1 million for a cumulative total of $80.4 million.

Janet and her husband, Bob, have always loved walking together with their dog, Maggie. Not only does this fun activity help them stay in shape, it also brings them together as a couple. But when Janet suddenly collapsed outside one day, Bob knew he had to get help for his wife – and fast. That’s when the award-winning Heart Specialists of St. Rita’s performed the operation that saved Janet’s life. Today, Janet and Bob are still walking – and Maggie couldn’t be happier.

She and her husband cut off contact, so I cut them out of my will. After the letter appeared, I got a call from my son-in-law, who referred me to some online comments about your column. I was surprised by the negative response. It seems there is a generation gap. I was a Depression kid, and there was no help from the government. If you couldn’t pay for food, you starved. Having gone through such rough times, we wanted to make things easy for our kids, and we gave them everything. It only resulted in spoiling them, and they, in turn, spoiled the next generation. These kids expect everything to be given to them and show no respect for their parents. My generation always showed respect. Fortunately, as a result of your publishing my letter, my daughter contacted me, and we are now speaking again. She doesn’t see things my way, and I don’t see things her way, but we have agreed to disagree. — S.W. from California Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2013 You could be very lucky in the year ahead where your personal relationships are concerned. It looks like you will have more friends than ever, and they’ll all be willing to help you out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Involvements with authority figures will work out in your favor, whether they were deliberately orchestrated or occur by happenstance. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Establish some definite objectives for the day, but keep them private. You’ll find that you will perform far more effectively if you don’t have to justify your intentions to others. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Certain knowledge you recently acquired can be used constructively on a current project. You can not only better your own lot in life, but improve things for associates as well. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take the reins, because your leadership abilities can be a critical factor in revitalizing a joint endeavor that has been going downhill. Your new direction can produce success. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -It looks like balance and harmony can be restored in a situation that has become increasingly unsettling. Your efforts, coupled with another’s, will be mostly responsible for the improvement. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Certain things that have been impossible to handle on your own can be achieved with the help of surrogates if you motivate them properly. Make sure they can benefit as well, and you’ll all do quite well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A partnership arrangement can become far more productive if you provide the initiative and let the other person serve as a backup. It could be totally up to you to rev the engines. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -A number of important assignments you’ve been unable to conclude satisfactorily can be finalized by prioritizing them and then knocking them off one at a time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Your popularity is peaking right now, and the impression you’re making in your social encounters is favorable and lasting. You’ll not find a better time to circulate and make new friends. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Financial trends are far more favorable than they might be tomorrow. If you’re involved in something that could spell profit, make every minute count. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- You’ll not only be a fast thinker, but you should also be able to express yourself in an eloquent and effective manner. All your comments will receive serious consideration. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A venture in which you’re presently involved looks like it could be turned into a financial winner, even though you might have to use a slightly different approach than you normally would. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013 Exciting times could be in the making during coming months, involving new places, faces, sights and sounds. Approach the future with lots of hope and expectation, envisioning many positive results. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Those with whom you have commercial involvements will quickly judge you to be fair and equitable. The example you set will be emulated by them in return. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Any new venture that you undertake will have very high chances of success. It’s possible there could be three such projects working out to your satisfaction. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You couldn’t avoid the spotlight if you tried, so don’t fight it. There is no need to get stage fright; the audience is packed with your friends. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -When you decide to promote a new idea, issue or cause, you can become an especially good salesperson, especially if you truly believe in what you’re doing. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Knowing that you will be better playing a supportive role, you’ll happily leave primary management of a project in the hands of someone in whom you have great faith. Good for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Willingly making adjustments that another wants could turn out to be an advantageous maneuver, and you know it. Your situation will improve as a result. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Becoming a champion of lost causes might be the best thing you can do. It’ll give you an opportunity to resurrect something really important that needs to be done. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Bonds can now be established with someone whom you’ve always liked but have never been able to get close to in the past. She or he will be exceptionally receptive to your overtures. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Being in an exceptionally artistic and creative cycle makes this an excellent day to try your hand at beautifying your living surroundings. You can use this gift for commercial purposes as well. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- There are many strong indications that you could derive some unusual benefits from an involvement that involves a number of pronounced elements of chance. Take your chances. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- More often than not, it’s important to prime the pump to get things flowing. For example, if you’re desirous of making financial gains, an investment on your part might be required. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Be grateful for what is new and different in your life, because it will be a harbinger of things to come, helping you approach the future with hope and expectation.

Bullying study: It does get better for gay teens
BY LINDSEY TANNER The Associated Press CHICAGO — It really does get better for gay and bisexual teens when it comes to being bullied, although young gay men have it worse than their lesbian peers, according to the first long-term scientific evidence on how the problem changes over time. The seven-year study involved more than 4,000 teens in England who were questioned yearly through 2010, until they were 19 and 20 years old. At the start, just over half of the 187 gay, lesbian and bisexual teens said they had been bullied; by 2010 that dropped to 9 percent of gay and bisexual boys and 6 percent of lesbian and bisexual girls. The researchers said the same results likely would be found in the United States. In both countries, a “sea change” in cultural acceptance of gays and growing intolerance for bullying occurred during the study years, which partly explains the results, said study co-author Ian Rivers, a psychologist and professor of human development at Brunel University in London. That includes a government mandate in England that schools work to prevent bullying, and changes in the United States permitting same-sex marriage in several states. In 2010, syndicated columnist Dan Savage launched the “It Gets Better” video project to encourage bullied gay teens. It was prompted by widely publicized suicides of young gays, and includes videos from politicians and celebrities.
BY DENIS D. GRAY The Associated Press PHNOM PENH, Cambodia — Hundreds of thousands of mourners gathered in Cambodia’s capital today for the cremation of former King Norodom Sihanouk, the revered “King-Father,” who survived wars and the murderous Khmer Rouge regime to hold center stage in the Southeast Asian nation for more than half a century. Cambodians from across the country flocked to Phnom Penh to pay their last respects as Sihanouk was given elaborate funeral rites — mingling Hindu, Buddhist and animist traditions — last seen 53 years ago with the death of Sihanouk’s father, King Norodom Suramarit. And they may never be seen again in a rapidly modernizing country where the monarchy has lost much of its power and glamor. After sunset, Sihanouk’s son King Norodom Sihamoni and widow, Queen Mother Norodom Monineath, both weeping, ignited the funeral pyre inside a temple-like, 15-story-high crematorium. Howitzers fired salvos as fireworks lit up the sky. After the cremation, Sihamoni handed out gifts to some 400 prisoners he had earlier pardoned as part of the mourning for his father, who he said was “in heaven, near the Lord Buddha, forever.” The cremation took place within a walled compound

“Bullying tends to decline with age regardless of sexual orientation and gender,” and the study confirms that, said co-author Joseph Robinson, a researcher and assistant professor of educational psychology at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. “In absolute terms, this would suggest that yes, it gets better.” The study appears online today in the journal Pediatrics. Eliza Byard, executive director of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, said the results mirror surveys by her anti-bullying advocacy group that show bullying is more common in U.S. middle schools than in high schools. But the researchers said their results show the situation is more nuanced for young gay men. In the first years of the study, gay boys and girls were almost twice as likely to be bullied as their straight peers. By the last year, bullying dropped overall and was at about the same level for lesbians and straight girls. But the difference between men got worse by ages 19 and 20, with gay young men almost four times more likely than their straight peers to be bullied. The mixed results for young gay men may reflect the fact that masculine tendencies in girls and women are more culturally acceptable than femininity in boys and men, Robinson said. Savage, who was not involved in the study, agreed. “A lot of the disgust that people feel when you bring up homosexuality … centers around gay male sexuality,” Savage said. “There’s more of a comfort level” around gay women, he said.
nitaries were allowed inside the cremation ground, along with courtiers dressed in pantaloons and soldiers in 19th centurystyle uniforms with spiked helmets and swords.
