Early morning fog was the likely culprit in a 14-vehicle crash at the intersection of Paulding County Rd. 87 and U.S. 24 Tuesday morning. Paulding resident Ashley A. Messmann was killed in the crash, and nine others were taken to hospitals for injuries. U.S. 24 remained closed at press time while the crews cleaned up the ethanol spilled by one of the tractor-trailers involved in the crash. (Paulding County Progress/Melinda Krick)

Paulding woman killed in

14-vehicle crash on U.S. 24

BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor

CECIL — A Paulding woman is dead after pulling out in front of a tractor-trailer at a foggy Paulding County intersection, trigger- ing seven more crashes. Around 8 a.m. Tuesday, Ashley A. Messmann, 28, Paulding tried to cross U.S. 224 at Paulding County Rd. 87. She drove her 2000 Chevrolet Blazer northbound through the intersection, but was struck by a 2007 Volvo semi pulling a tanker with approxi- mately 1,500 gallons of 97 percent ethanol liquid. The tanker ruptured in the crash and the ethanol leaked into the median. The driver of the truck was Dale D. Janssens, 41, Monroe, Michigan.

Library materials now available 24/7

After the initial crash, seven more crashed occurred as vehicles in both the eastbound and westbound lanes of U.S. 24 tried to avoid the wreckage. In those seven related crashes, nine people were taken to numerous hospitals for treatment on non-life threatening injuries. Messmann was pronounced dead at the scene by the Paulding County coroner. According to the OSHP, the ethanol spill presented no immediate threat to the local community and was contained by crews from several fire departments and the E.P.A. In all, 14 vehicles were involved in the crash — 11 commercial vehicles, two pas- senger cars, and a pickup truck hauling exca- vating equipment. The area was covered by

in January, patrons now have

the privilege of accessing library materials 24 hours

a day from the comfort of

their own homes. Among these materials are the long- anticipated eBooks as well as other downloadable content for computers, portable read- ers and devices. “In some ways it’s like the library is open 24 hours,” library employee Doris Suever said. “Patrons can go online with their pin number and library card and down- load content and place holds. If you’re like me and you want to read it now, you can narrow the search to show only available items.” In a world where it seems like everyone has a digital reader, be it a Kindle, tablet, iPod or smart phone, it was only a matter of time before local libraries started offering digital content in addition to traditional materials.

“People will save money with the eBooks, because

previously they’ve always had to buy them,” Suever

said. “Kindle is the easiest and most compatible read- er to use with this system but you don’t have to have

a reader, you can read the

eBooks right there on your computer browser.” Library Director Kelly

Rist says the library is open to suggestions on what eBooks to offer.

“If there’s a certain title that a patron would like to read, they can suggest it to us,” she said. “We have a certain amount we have to spend on eBooks and so we’ll be interested in attaining more. Each title can only be

checked out so many times before we have to re-new and re-purchase it. Another convenient thing about downloading materials

at home is there are no late

fees. Titles simply disappear once the due date arrives. Users may need to download new software to download

content, such as OverDrive Media Console for audio- books, music and video, and Adobe Digital Editions to read e-books. Digital content aside, patrons now have access to

Water issues dominate city council session


DELPHOS — Delphos City Council addressed a light legislative agenda in regular session Monday eve- ning, providing approval to the annual appropriation ordinance for the purchase of stone aggregate product, water meters, bituminous materials and chemicals uti- lized throughout the year by various departments of the city, for projects and structure maintenance requirements. Passage of the ordinance will allow the administration to contract with successful bid- ders for required materials. Council also heard but took no action on first read- ing to legislation providing for a fund transfer from the General Fund to the Police & Fireman’s Pension funds to bring the specified funds from a deficient position in accordance with recommen- dation from the State of Ohio Auditors Office, and resolu- tions to amend the Police & Fire Pensions Funds in accor- dance with IRS regulations. The new IRS requirements directs a tax deferred amount of 10.75 percent on employee contributors to the fund to be channeled through a payroll

deduction by the City to the Ohio Pension fund for the affected employees. Mayor Michael Gallmeier presented plaques to three recently retired city fire and/ or EMS volunteers, thank- ing each for their extensive records of service, including:

Dennis Hageman, 44 years; Bob Jettinghoff, 27 years; and Paul Carder, 26 years. City Safety Service Director Greg Berquist advised council that work continues on the 2013 budget, however a date for a finance committee meeting to review the progress was not yet set. Berquist also advised council that Police Chief Kyle Fittro is investigating the possibility of purchasing another new cruiser for the city to replace an aging unit. Maintenance costs on exist- ing cruisers have become a factor due to high mileage and breakdowns. Fittro is investigating a lease-to-own proposal for a new cruiser, providing for city ownership within three years of the ini- tial possession. Berquist also advise that maintenance of the water treatment plant system con-

Allen-VW County officials confer on wind project

BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor

DELPHOS — Economic devel- opment officials from both Van Wert and Allen counties met along with Delphos representatives on Tuesday

to compare notes on a proposed wind

farm which could soon appear in southern Van Wert County. BP Wind has been working toward

constructing Long Prairie Wind Farm, a proposed 200-megawatt wind farm,

in Liberty, Willshire and York town-

ships of Van Wert County. At the last update from the project developer, plenty of acreage has been optioned by the company with the licensing process set to begin later this year. If approved by the Ohio Power Siting Board, turbines could start to appear

late this year or early in 2014. The next step is to clear a way to send the electricity from the turbines to the electrical grid. According to Jeff Sprague, president of the Allen County Economic Development Group, that will involve an aban-

doned rail line in Allen County. “We were approached about a year ago by BP Wind. They need access from a wind farm they are looking at putting in in Van Wert County, to run from that wind farm into Lima to one

of the substations where they would plug in the power. So they are look- ing for access down the Spencerville- Elgin Railroad,” Sprague stated. The Tuesday meeting was called for Allen County officials to check with Van Wert County about dealings with BP Wind and whether or not the

county commissioners were on board with the project. “We’re up to speed, we’re on board and we supportive of the proj- ect,” Van Wert County Commissioner Thad Lichtensteiger declared. “You’re not supporting some rogue project that nobody knows anything about.” The Allen County Port Authority has been asked to be able to lease right-of-way along the old railroad bed which runs from Lima through Spencerville, and northwest near the Van Wert County communi- ties of Elgin, Ohio City and finally Glenmore. BP Wind would like to use the old rail route for its trans- mission line to a substation in Lima and out onto the electrical grid. The line would be suspended with five

poles per mile. The support poles would look much like the lines run by Iberdrola Renewables’ Blue Creek Wind Farm along U.S. 127 north of Van Wert. Right-of-way must be granted by the Allen and the Van Wert County port authorities. Lichtensteiger went on to explain that not everyone in Van Wert County was on board with the project but “the economic development, the commerce that it provides for the city and county of Van Wert, you just can’t escape that.” Sprague and Allen County Commissioner Cory Noonan prom- ised cooperation in the project as the first of many such arrangements. “Hopefully this is the first step in many collaborative efforts,” Noonan remarked.

Staff reports

LIMA — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is current- ly investigating an injury

crash that occurred on Feb. 5 at approximately 8:10 a.m. The crash occurred on Acadia Road south of Upperman Road in the Township of Washington

Ohio AG:

System failure led to deadly police chase

RICHFIELD (AP) — Leadership and communica- tions failures led to the chaotic police chase in Cleveland last fall than ended with 13 officers firing 137 rounds and killing two people who were likely unarmed, Ohio’s attorney gen- eral said Tuesday in reporting the results of an exhaustive investigation. “It was total lack of con- trol,” Attorney General Mike DeWine said during a news conference at the state crime laboratory. He turned over the report to Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty, who said he would take the case to a grand jury to determine if any of the officers should face criminal charges. Officials didn’t announce a timeframe for the grand jury review and McGinty said he hadn’t dawn any conclusions about criminal charges. The report did not assign blame on any of the officers but said “systemic failures” in the Cleveland police depart- ment led to the escalation of the Nov. 29 chase and the fatal shootings of the car’s driver, Timothy Russell, 43, and his 30-year-old passenger Malissa Williams. “Command failed, com- munications failed, the system failed,” DeWine said. Patrick D’Angelo, the police union attorney, watched the news conference and said the shooting would be found to be justified. The chase reflects the risks officers face daily, he said. “The driver of the car tried to run over numerous police officers, he intentionally rammed other patrol cars and officers were in fear of their life and they did what they were trained to do,” D’Angelo said. A key question remained unanswered: Did the two peo- ple fleeing in the car have a weapon that was tossed out during the chase? DeWine said gunpowder residue tests on the two and their vehicle showed traces of gunpowder but it wasn’t conclusive on whether they had been armed or on whether the residue, as was possible, came from the exten- sive gunfire. Some community leaders called the shootings racially motivated, since Russell and Williams were black, but D’Angelo said race wasn’t a factor in the chase. DeWine described a confus- ing scene where dozens of police cruisers from multiple jurisdic- tions became involved in the chase without permission from superiors and little direction after some officers thought someone from the car had fired shots. Then, at the end of the chase, officers positioned on both sides of the suspect’s car began firing, the report said. The crossfire led other officers to believe they were involved in a shootout with the two peo- ple in the car. Many of the officers told investigators they were fright- ened and legitimately feared for their lives.

Notices can still be sent by mail; we give them the option.” Patrons are encouraged by the library staff to come in and explore the new system


and ask questions. “Some of the patrons really

like it so far,” Suever said. “Others have found it chal- lenging. If you have any ques- tions, just come in and ask.” “We’re here to help every- one through the transition,” Rist added. “I think it’s good for people to come in and see a good use for their tax dollars.

tinues with cleaning of membrane units within the structure to extend their useful life and provide proper filtration. Prompted by Councilman Hanser, Berquist noted that the pro- posed Cass Street waterline improvement documenta- tion has been forwarded to the EPA and is now pending approval before further con- struction steps can be taken. The proposed water line will utilize an easement along the railroad tracks just south of the Bunge NA facility. Regarding the pro- posed Gressel Drive water loop project, Berquist indicated the Community Improvement Corporation is taking possession of a par-

cel of land necessary for the infrastructure expansion and that action will significantly reduce the overall project expected cost from $140,000 to $80,000 as the city will only need to obtain an ease- ment through the property owned by the CIC. Auditor Tom Jettinghoff suggested that funding for the waterline project be secured through a loan rather than direct pay- ment to limit the impact to the city budget. Jettinghoff also reviewed with council the present and projected water and sewer fund balances, noting that the balance for the water fund is projected to diminish to just over $100,000 by the end of 2013 and $49,000 by the end of 2015. The decrease is due in part to loss of rev-

Customs: Fake Super Bowl jerseys seized

CINCINNATI (AP) — Federal customs officials say bogus Super Bowl jerseys are among $3.4 million in counter- feit goods that have been seized from shipping hubs at two Ohio airports. U.S. Customs and Border

Protection officials said Tuesday the jerseys and other items were seized over the past nine days

at the DHL hub at Cincinnati/

Northern Kentucky International Airport and the UPS hub at

Louisville International Airport.

A Customs spokeswoman says

most of the items were jerseys but the fake goods included other clothing and consumer electron-

ics. Officers seized about 22,600 items with an estimated manu- facturer’s suggested retail price

of $2.9 million at the DHL hub.

That’s what the goods would have cost if they’d been genuine. About 37,900 items valued at about $510,000 were confiscated at the UPS hub.

enue, despite a cost of living adjustment to billing, and the need to address existing debt. Jettinghoff indicated he was “not comfortable” with the projected account bal- ance within two years. The sewer fund has also experienced a decline in revenue although expected to increase slightly in the next few years. Despite the increase, the fund balance is projected at $778,000 through 2013 and dropping to $245,000 at the end of 2015. Jettinghoff noted that the projected figures for the sewer fund do not include the potential high cost impact the city would face if replacement of mem- branes in the water treat- ment plant filtration system is required.

Obama to visit Israel, first time as president

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will go to Israel in the spring, the White House said Tuesday, marking his first visit to the staunch U.S. ally since becom- ing president. While in the region, Obama will make stops in the West Bank and Jordan. Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed the visit to Israel in late January, when Obama con- gratulated Netanyahu on his success in Israel’s recent elec- tion. The White House has not released the date of Obama’s trip or details about his itin- erary, but Israel’s Channel 10 reported the trip had been scheduled for March 20. “The start of the president’s second term and the forma- tion of a new Israeli govern- ment offer the opportunity to reaffirm the deep and endur- ing bonds between the U.S. and Israel and to discuss the way forward on a broad range of issues of mutual concern, including Iran and Syria,” said National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Vietor. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama would work closely with Palestinian Authority and Jordanian offi- cials on regional issues during his visit to Jordan and the West Bank. Obama’s trip to Israel, com- ing shortly after the start of his second term, could offer an opportunity to repair a noto- riously strained relationship with Netanyahu. But the trip is almost certain to raise expecta- tions for the type of peace ini- tiative that eluded Obama and his foreign policy team during his first four years in office. Obama has in the past warned against setting expectations too high for a breakthrough in stalled negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians.

WASHINGTON — When Burma’s Zin Mar Aung was placed in solitary confine- ment for trying to organize students in 1999, Bill Clinton was president of the United States. When she was released, Barack Obama was in the Oval Office. Zin Mar Aung says she had never heard of George W. Bush or his wife, Laura, who used her own bully pulpit to push for liberation of Burma’s most famous political pris- oner, democratic leader Aung San Suu Kyi, then under house arrest. Suu Kyi is well-known to many now because of the largely unacknowledged work of the Bushes, as well as Hillary Clinton and John McCain. Since her release, Suu Kyi has risen to public office, accepted her Nobel Peace Prize and been the sub- ject of a movie (“The Lady”). Less well-known are four rising female leaders with whom I met, including Zin Mar Aung, who are visiting the U.S. this month for lead- ership training. Their delega- tion is sponsored by Goldman Sachs’ “10,000 Women” pro- gram, in partnership with the George W. Bush Institute, the McCain Institute and Meridian International Center.

Obama, GOP disagree, again, on spending

By DAVID ESPO The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — After two tumultuous years of budget brinkmanship, President Barack Obama and Republicans in Congress finally agree on something — namely, that a previous

10-year pact to cut $1 trillion across the board was such a bad idea it must be stopped before it starts. If consensus counts as good news in an era of divided government, consider this: They also disagree vehe- mently on a suitable replace- ment. As a result, they seem likely to spend the spring and perhaps a good part of the summer struggling to escape

a bind of their own making.

And this time, Medicare and

the rest of the government’s benefit programs are likely

to face changes. Already, the

two sides are laying down markers. Obama called on Congress on Tuesday to join him in developing a replacement for the across-the-board reduc- tions, “a balanced mix of spending cuts and more tax reform.” “We can’t just cut our way to prosperity,” he told reporters at the White House. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell had a dif- ferent view. “If Democrats

have ideas for smarter cuts, they should bring them up for debate,” he said, not- ing that the GOP-controlled House already has produced

an alternative. “But the American people will not support more tax hikes in place of the mean- ingful spending reductions both parties already agreed to and the president signed into law,” McConnell said, a reference to legislation ear- lier this year that raised taxes at upper incomes by $600 billion. For their part, major- ity Republicans in the House welcome the debate after cal- culating that their leverage with Obama would increase once he asked lawmakers for repeal of the across-the-board

cuts. In fact, the across-the- board reductions themselves were born almost of des- peration, designed to be so

unpalatable that they would force members of a 2011 congressional supercommit- tee to agree on a sweeping anti-deficit plan rather than let them take effect. The panel deadlocked. The cuts have been delayed by two months but are set to kick in on March 1 — $483 billion out of defense over a decade and roughly the same out of

a variety of domestic pro-

grams. Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security benefits are untouched. The cuts —

known in Washington-speak as a “sequester” — have not gotten any more popular in the intervening months. “President Obama pro- posed the sequester, insisted the sequester become law and then doubled down on keeping the sequester in place,” Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington asserted Tuesday, one of numerous Republicans to do

so. Few if any political lead- ers care to defend the auto- matic cuts, and the nonpar- tisan Congressional Budget Office said Tuesday they would slow economic growth

if they take effect.

The nation’s top uniformed officials warned lawmakers recently of dire consequences from even one year’s allot- ment of cuts planned for the Pentagon. “We will have to ground aircraft, return ships to port and stop driving com- bat vehicles in training,” members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff wrote to Congress. A group of liberal House Democrats wants to replace across-the-board cuts with nearly $1 trillion in higher taxes over a decade, at the same time calling for changes to earlier deficit deals they

opposed. The effect would be a “fair, balanced approach that protects working fami- lies,” they said.

US sues S&P over pre-crisis mortgage ratings

The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government says Standard & Poor’s knowingly inflated its ratings on risky mortgage investments that helped trigger the 2008 finan- cial crisis. The credit rating agency gave high marks to mortgage- backed securities because it wanted to earn more business from the banks that issued the investments, the Justice Department alleges in civil

charges filed in federal court

in Los Angeles. The government is

demanding that S&P to pay

at least $5 billion in penalties.

The case is the govern- ment’s first major action against one of the credit rat- ing agencies that stamped their approval on Wall Street’s soon-to-implode mortgage bundles. It marks a milestone for the Justice Department, which has long been criti- cized for failing to act aggres- sively against the companies that contributed to the crisis. S&P, a unit of New York- based McGraw-Hill Cos., called the lawsuit “meritless.” “Hindsight is no basis to take legal action against the

good-faith opinions of profes- sionals,” the company said in a statement. “Claims that we deliberately kept ratings high when we knew they should

be lower are simply not true.” According to the lawsuit,

S&P knew that home prices were falling and that bor- rowers were having trouble

repaying loans. Yet these real- ities weren’t reflected in the safe ratings S&P gave to com- plex real-estate investments known as mortgage-backed securities and collateralized

debt obligations. At least one S&P exec- utive who had raised con-

cerns about the company’s proposed methods for rating investments was ignored. S&P executives expressed concern that lowering the ratings on some investments would anger the clients sell- ing these investments and drive new business to S&P’s rivals, the government claims. “Put simply, this alleged conduct is egregious — and

it goes to the very heart of

the recent financial crisis,” Attorney General Eric Holder said at a news conference Tuesday. Holder called the case “an

important step forward in our ongoing efforts to investigate and punish the conduct that is believed to have contributed to the worst economic crisis in recent history.” The $5 billion in penalties the government is demand- ing would amount to several times the annual revenue of McGraw-Hill’s Standard & Poor’s Ratings division. The ratings business gener- ated $1.77 billion in revenue in 2011. McGraw-Hill’s total revenue was $6.25 billion. Joining the Justice Department in the announce- ment were attorneys general from California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Iowa and Mississippi, who have filed or will file separate, similar civil fraud lawsuits against S&P. On Tuesday, California’s attorney general filed a law- suit in San Francisco Superior Court claiming that S&P’s inflated ratings on risky mort- gage bonds cost the state’s

public pension funds and other investors billions of dollars. More states are expected to sue, the Justice Department said.

able by incarceration, torture or worse. Imagine sitting in an 8-by-8-foot cell alone for

11 years with nothing but a

small water jug, a “sink” for waste, and a 15-minute daily break for a cold bath in a communal tub. Throw in a lack of any amenities (shoes) or even necessities, such as sanitary napkins. This was Zin Mar Aung’s life for 11 years. How did she

hang on to her sanity, I asked? She says she accepted that her existence consisted of those

64 square feet and wishing

otherwise would do her no

good. Meditate on that for

a few seconds, while keep-

ing in mind that her crime was publicly reading and distributing a collection of revolutionary poems she and her fellow students had writ- ten. Zin Mar Aung says she focused on those poems to get her through more than 4,000 days. Then one day, she was free. What does one do next? How does one navigate free-

dom in a nation relatively new

to democratic reform and find

the voice to speak when one

has been silenced? Second and third thoughts further

crowd the spirit in a country where, despite admiration for The Lady (as everyone refers

to Suu Kyi), women are not

universally embraced in the political process. It takes courage to put one foot in front of the other, much less to become an activ- ist, as Zin Mar Aung and her

colleagues have done. For her part, Zin Mar Aung picked up where she left off, earn- ing a degree in botany, and now pursuing an international law degree. In the meantime, she established the Yangon School of Political Science and co-founded Rainfall, an organization focused on women’s empowerment. The accomplishments of the four also include helping political prisoners, provid- ing education and training to underserved girls and young

women vulnerable to traf- ficking, and advocating for victims of domestic violence. The name of one of the orga- nizations they help suggests the urgency and breadth of their challenges: “Stop Sexual Harassment on the Bus Now.” The three other women are:

Hla Hla Yee, a mother, attor- ney and former political pris- oner who counsels margin- alized women and provides paralegal training in orphan- ages and elsewhere; Shunn

Lei Swe Yee, who mobilizes young people to work for a

more civil society; and Ma Nilar OO, who worked for the International Red Cross for 18 years, advocated for political prisoners and per-

sonally provided some of those aforementioned neces- sities to Zin Mar Aung and Hla Hla Yee when they were imprisoned. More recently,

she has been training and finding jobs for at-risk girls and young women (ages 13 to 35). She recently lost two teens from her program when their parents sold them each for $100. They were of high value, apparently, because they were virgins, the sun- dering of whom is crudely termed in Burma “to open a new envelope.” Some of these struggles sound familiar, even in our relatively advanced democ- racy. What is different for these women is the absence of democratic traditions in their country and a lack of famil- iarity with the instruments of freedom. Everything — from how to build a feminist movement to how to create

a political party — has to be

invented from scratch. What is message? What is public opinion? How does a person get elected? Imagine that. And then meditate about — or pray for — the safety and success of these four brave women.

They had two ice fishing
little children. Benjamin was

different things and couldn’t
get it to start. We took the
motor to get looked at but it
is 17 years old so we don’t
know if it is fixable. We
bought another motor and
Joe hooked it to the washing
machine. It was such a relief
to finally get all that dirty
laundry washed. Susan was
working so I ended up doing
the job myself. I didn’t hear
Benjamin complain that he
didn’t get to help since he
was at school yesterday. That
motor worked really well so
I got a lot of washings done

tled Tuesday night at Spencerville High School. The Jays won both of their matches, edging the host Bearcats 39-33 and whipping the Panthers 48-18. The Bearcats bested Parkway 66-12. The Jays of head man Derek Sterling had a few more wrestlers back from the

injured list than they did over the weekend. They had eight wrestlers, voiding six weight classes versus Spencerville, while the Bearcats had two voided classes (both voided


“We were hoping to get some more guys back and get them at least a match. We had seven matches and won six of them,” Sterling noted. “Will (Buettner) got two pins — the only one that had two matches. Justin (Siefker) had

a big match against Trevor

Bockey at 132; Trevor was the NWC champion this past

weekend, so that was a big win for us to get the team win. Derek (Anthony) got a nice pin of another freshman at 170; we’ve been able to hide him behind two seniors but he also got a big win for us tonight. He weights 160,

The Jays have one more tri-match tonight: versus

Van Buren and Riverdale at Riverdale. “Tonight and Wednesday are for seeding purpose at sectionals. You want to get the best seed — especially the matches we did get — we can get for the draw in hopes of get- ting into dis- tricts and go from there,” he added.” Spencerville coach Tom Wegesin took solace in get- ting another wrestler back from injury and getting his predominately freshmen and sophomore middle weights another match. “That’s what you want right now; get more match- es for your young guys. Unfortunately tonight, our youngsters were matched up with their strengths in the middle weights,” Wegesin explained. “We got Dakota (Sutherland) back for the

first time all season after he had two or three matches last winter. Our 170, Zach

Brown, was bumped up from 152. We’ve had to do that all season with a number of guys to fill weight classes.” Still, the coach wanted a crisper performance. “I don’t know what it was — it was our last home match — but we didn’t come out very sharp. Still, we can take this match and what we’ve learned and look ahead to the sectionals; that’s what we prepare for,” he added. The Panthers only had five wrestlers in their first year at the sport. “This is our first year of wrestling at the school. We are trying to instill the basics in the kids and build from scratch, which is what we’ve had to do,” Panther coach Kevin Browning explained. “We had a few seniors that wanted to give it a try this year and it’s been nice; we’ve done well at a couple of junior varsity tournaments. Now we have to sell it to the younger years. I look at this as a 5-year vision. Next year, we’ll try and get a junior high program going to build from the bottom. I don’t see a lot of accomplishments the first two years but down the road.”

Bulldogs rout Rockets By Dave Boninsegna The Delphos Herald

PANDORA — The Columbus Grove Bulldogs boys basketball team con- tinued their dominance from the free-throw line Tuesday night in their Putnam County League matchup against the Pandora-Gilboa Rockets at The Launching Pad. The ’Dogs drained 17-of-22 attempts, with Will Vorhees connecting on 11-of-13, as the guests rolled past the Rockets 53-25. Vorhees led all scorers with 20 points and has hit 17-of-19 over the span of the past two contest (6-of- 6 vs. Continental). Collin Grothaus and Derek Rieman each had nine for Grove. Abe Basinger led the Rockets with seven markers. Grove shot 15-of-36 from the field in the contest. In contrast, the Rockets had difficulties finding the mark, going just 9-of-42 attempts and 4-of-9 from the stripe. P-G took a brief 3-2 edge early in the game as

the teams traded buckets

on alternate possessions but after Rieman powered his way for a bank shot at the low block to give the Bulldogs a 5-3 advantage, the visitors never looked back. Grove rode streaks of

19-2 and 13-2 in the first half

to take control. The Rockets

shot just 1-of-9 in the first stanza as a stingy Bulldog defense kept the hosts on

their heels; P-G held the ball

in one possession for nearly

two minutes before a shot became available and even after that the home team got

the offensive rebound, the ’Dogs stole it away. Columbus Grove built up

a 7-3 lead after the first

stop and after a Rieman shot from the low post, the guests had a 10-point advantage at

15-5. Vorhees showed off his foul shooting talents in the second stanza by hitting 3-of-4 and adding a bucket from inside and outside the arc, the latter leading to a 20-5 lead and topping off a 19-2 spurt by the crimson and grey. The Rockets made just 3-of-18 shots in the first 16 minutes and only 2-of-8 from the line. The second half didn’t

get much better; the visitors came out shooting again and after a Jarred

T o u s l e y

bucket, the

B u l l d o g s

went on

a n o t h e r

stretch, this time a 13-2 run. At one point in the canto,

Vorhees drove the paint, switched hands in mid-stride and laid the ball in for two, giving him 13 points on the night with the scoreboard showing a 28-11 Grove lead. Grothaus and Vorhees delivered 15 of the 17 points for the Bulldogs in the third stanza as the hosts stood with a commanding 41-14 lead at the end of three. Grove’s foul-shoot- ing expertise continued in the final period as Jace Darbyshire nailed 4-of- 4 adding to his six points; senior Josh Tussing, who had been injured this sea- son, saw his first action and drained a long ball with under two minutes to go, making it a 53-21 score. The Bulldogs improved to 12-6 overall, while the Rockets fell to 4-12. The JV contest was also

Schimmoeller basket at buzzer gives Big Green PCL win

By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald

OTTOVILLE – Tuesday night, the Fort Jennings Musketeers traveled down State Route 189 to take on the Big Green of Ottoville in their annual Putnam County League boys basketball contest. The game was a very low-scoring, defensive battle with the Big Green sneaking out a thrilling 29-28 win over the Musketeers. The Musketeers, directed by veteran head coach John Von Sossan, came into the game this evening after winning a non- league matchup earlier in the season over the Big Green back on Dec. 14 at Ft. Jennings. The first quarter, as was the case with each quarter of play, was very low-scoring on both sides. The Big Green scored first at the 6:20 mark when senior Derek Schimmoeller drove the lane and connected on a short jumper. It would be the only two points for the Big Green in the quar- ter. The Musketeers, on the other hand, scored eight unan- swered points to take an 8-2 lead after one quarter of play. Senior Kurt Warnecke had four points, sophomore Nick Von Sossan had a 3-ball and senior Brandon Kohli rounded out the scoring, going 1-of-2 from the stripe. The second quarter found both teams unable to dent the scoreboard until the 5:00 mark when Schimmoeller forced a Musketeer turnover at mid- court and lasered a pass to sophomore Austin Honigford for a driving layup, reduc- ing the deficit to 8-4. Both teams did not score again until the 2:30 mark when sopho- more Tyler Roby connected on a deep 3-ball to shrink the Musketeer lead to 8-7. The Musketeers only scored four points in the quarter, coming at the 1:35 and 1:00 marks with junior Josh Wittler and Kohli connecting on bas- kets in the lane. Junior Luke Schimmoeller rounded out the scoring at the 44-second mark

for the Big Green as he con- nected on a 15-footer to bring

the halftime score to 12-9, Musketeers. The second half saw soph- omore Connor Wallenhorst open up the third quarter by connecting on five points for the visitors. Warnecke added another deuce to the Musketeer total of seven points for the period. The Big Green outscored the Musketeers 9-7 in the third to reduce the visitors’ lead to 19-18. Derek Schimmoeller and Ryan Honigford got bas- kets for the home team but the big points for the home squad again came from Roby with his second three of the game; Luke Schimmoeller hit a fade- away shot as time expired in the quarter as Ottoville trailed

with five points of their own behind a basket by sophomore Austin Kehres and a deep three by Von Sossan to take the lead back, 24-22. The final three minutes of play were by far the most exciting of the game as it became nail-biting time for both teams, coaches and fans. Luke Schimmoeller connect- ed on two foul shots at the 3:40 mark to tie the game at 24-24. Von Sossan came right back with a shot from the left wing, giving the visitors a 2-point lead, 26-24. Roby, after a missed foul shot by Warnecke on the other end, drilled his third 3-pointer of the game at the 35.1-second mark to give the Big Green a 27-26 lead. After a Musketeer timeout, they inbounded the ball and it looked like the Big Green were going to get the ball

back but after the ball seemed to bounce back and forth to each team like a pinball game, the Musketeers scooped it up and found Warnecke alone under the basket to give the visitors

a 28-27 lead with 9.8 seconds

to go. After two timeouts and two Musketeer fouls because they only had four team fouls at that point, the Big Green found themselves with the ball out of bounds with 4.2 seconds to go. They set a double screen to free up Luke Schimmoeller and he did not disappoint as he drove the lane, faded back and drilled the game-winning basket through the net as time expired. For Schimmoeller, it was

a shot that every kid dreams

about growing up: “We knew they were going to try to run some seconds off the clock. They fouled me twice but Coach told me to go ‘back to the same thing. We’re going to screen for you and you got to make the bucket.’ It’s something you dream about – making a game-winner – and you don’t know exactly how it’s going to go but it feels great – we needed a win.” Turnwald knew the impor- tance of getting the ball to Schimmoeller at the end: “I thought it was important for Luke to get the ball down the stretch. Let’s just get the ball in his hands and let him go to work. Fortunately tonight, it was able to work out for us.” The Big Green (7-11, 2-3 PCL) were led in scoring by Roby and Luke Schimmoeller with nine and eight points, respectively. The home team was 12-41 (29%) from the field, 2-4 (50%) from the foul line, hauled in 17 rebounds and only committed 5 turn- overs. They host Continental for another PCL matchup Friday (6:30 p.m.). The Musketeers (4-15, 1-4 PCL) were led in scoring by Von Sossan and Warnecke with eight points apiece. The visitors were 12-32 (38%) from the field, 1-3 (33%) from the charity stripe, hauled down 24 rebounds and turned the ball over 14 times. They next play at Jefferson Saturday night. The JV contest was won by Ottoville 18-16.

Coach Todd Turnwald of the Big Green was happy to see Roby step up this night:

“Tyler was absolutely huge for us tonight with three 3-point- ers. We’ve brought him along slowly this season but he’s been practicing more and more with the varsity. He’s a very skilled player – we just have to keep him playing at a consistent level every day.” Both teams have struggled all year on closing out games and this night was no excep- tion as both teams found themselves in the lead dur- ing the final minutes of play. The Big Green started strong in the final quarter by scor- ing four quick points on the Musketeers and taking their biggest lead of the game, 22-19. Not to be outdone, the Musketeers fought right back

SKIING SCHLADMING, Austria — Lindsey Vonn will miss the rest of the ski season after tearing knee ligaments and breaking a bone in her leg in a high-speed crash Tuesday at the world championships. The U.S. team expects her to return for the next World Cup season and the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Vonn lost balance on her right leg while landing a jump in the super-G. She flipped in the air, landed on her back and smashed through a gate before coming to a halt. The 4-time overall World Cup win- ner and 2010 Olympic downhill champion received medical treatment on the slope for 12 minutes before being taken by helicopter to a hospital in Schladming.

The 28-year-old star tore her anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral liga- ment in her right knee, U.S. team medical director Kyle Wilkens announced in a state- ment. The broken bone in her lower leg was described as a “lateral tibial plateau fracture.” Tina Maze became the first Slovenian skier to win a world championship gold medal in a speed event, taking super-G ahead of Lara Gut of Switzerland and Julia Mancuso of the U.S. BASEBALL NEW YORK — Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun said he used the person who ran the Florida clinic being investigated by Major League Baseball only as a consul-

tant on his drug suspension appeal last year. “I have nothing to hide,” Braun wrote in a statement his representatives released to The Associated Press. Earlier in the day, Yahoo Sports report- ed the 2011 NL MVP’s name showed up three times in records of the Biogenesis of America LLC clinic. Yahoo said no specific performance-enhancing drugs were listed next to his name. The Miami New Times recently released clinic documents that purportedly linked Alex Rodriguez, Gio Gonzalez, Melky Cabrera and other players to purchases of banned drugs from the now-closed anti- aging center. ST. LOUIS — Chris Carpenter is unlike-

ly to pitch for the St. Louis Cardinals this season and his career may be over because of a nerve injury that kept him out most of last year. Carpenter has renewed numbness and some bruising in his right shoulder and hand after throwing off a mound prior to spring training, general manager John Mozeliak said. He will get an additional medical evaluation and isn’t officially retiring but Mozeliak added the Cardinals are moving on without him. PRO FOOTBALL BALTIMORE — Baltimore celebrated with its Super Bowl champion Ravens, with thousands of fans in purple lining the streets and packing the team’s stadium for a cel-

ebration. Fans filled the square in front of City Hall and cheered when the team arrived and when players held the silver Lombardi tro- phy aloft. The Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management estimated that 200,000 people took part in the celebration in Charm City, including at City Hall, along the parade route and at the stadium. Coach John Harbaugh thanked the fans for their support; safety Ed Reed sang the melody of Eddie Money’s “Two Tickets to Paradise.” Retiring middle linebacker Ray Lewis, the only current player to have started with the team when it came to the city from

Rockets tie NBA record for 3s against Warriors

By CHRIS DUNCAN The Associated Press

HOUSTON — The Houston fans knew the Rockets were on the verge of history against Golden State on Tuesday night, need- ing one more 3-pointer to set an NBA record. Warriors coach Mark Jackson wasn’t going to let that happen. The Rockets set- tled for tying an NBA record and set a fran- chise mark with 23 3-pointers in a 140-109 win over the Warriors. Houston matched the single-game record for 3s set by Orlando in a win over Sacramento on Jan. 13, 2009. The Toyota Center crowd realized the outright record was within reach in the final three minutes, chanting “One more 3!” But the Warriors took away Houston’s chances of getting it by fouling at the end. “We’re not going to lay down,” Jackson said. “If you’re going to try to get the record, we’re going to stop it.” The Warriors should’ve employed that plan sooner. Jeremy Lin sank five 3-pointers, a career high, and Chandler Parsons and James Harden hit four apiece as the Rockets reached a season-high point total. They also tied an NBA record with 14 3-point- ers in the first half and dished out a season-high 35 assists on 46 field goals overall. “Thankfully, we were just able to get a bunch of open looks and knock them down,” Lin said. “That’s just the way it is sometimes.” Lin scored 28 points, Harden added 18 and Parsons had 16 for Houston. The Rockets put on the shoot- ing display without their best 3-point shooter — Carlos Delfino, who sat out with a

right elbow injury. Jarrett Jack scored 20

points and David Lee had 18 for the Warriors. Stephen Curry, averaging 21 points

per game, scored only seven

points on 3-for-12 shooting. Houston set a Toyota Center scoring record and reached 140 points for the first time since April 1995. “Throughout the whole game, you fig- ured they’d cool off,” Curry said. “But we have to force them to take tougher shots. You just can’t give them open looks.” The Rockets were 18-of- 27 from 3-point range through three quarters. They finally hit a dry spell early in the fourth, missing their

first three 3-point attempts. It didn’t last long — Marcus Morris connected on a 3 from the wing and Parsons flashed


a smile as the two trot-


back down the court.

With the outcome decided,

Rockets coach Kevin McHale pulled his starters with 5:49

left, leaving the pursuit of the

NBA record to the reserves. By then, everyone on Houston bench knew the record was within reach. The fans were ready to

explode anticipating the record-setting 3. Reserve point guard Patrick Beverley drove

for a one-handed dunk with

1:04 remaining, prompting a

mix of cheers and groans.

Beverley took a hard foul

from Draymond Green on a 3-point try with 34 seconds left. Beverley and Green snapped at one another, prompting a heated argument between sev-

eral players. Green and Morris

were ejected. “Some nights, it’s not your

night and it wasn’t ours and

we didn’t play particularly

well,” Jackson added. “That doesn’t mean, lay down and surrender. That’s not in our

doesn’t mean, lay down and surrender. That’s not in our DNA.” But the Warriors had to

DNA.” But the Warriors had to be a bit demoralized because the Rockets seemed to make every outside shot they took. They went 7-for-10 from 3-point range in the first quar- ter and 14-for-18 in the first half. Milwaukee had 14 3s in a half against Phoenix in March 2006 and New York matched that total twice last season — against Portland on March 14 and against Boston on April 17. Curry, though, had the most spectacular shot before the break, just beating the buzzer with a half-court shot to cut Houston’s lead to 77-62. But Golden State’s perime- ter defense was no better in the third quarter and 3-pointers by Parsons and Lin stretched the gap past 20. Harrison Barnes ran out to guard Lin on his next 3-point attempt and Lin blew by him for a layup and an 87-64 Houston lead.

LAKERS 92, NETS 83 NEW YORK — Kobe Bryant had 21 points and eight rebounds and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame the absences of Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace and the loss of Pau Gasol to beat the Brooklyn Nets 92-83 on Tuesday night. Antawn Jamison, starting for the suspended World Peace, made the go-ahead basket during a closing 14-3 run for the Lakers, who have won three straight and six of their last seven games. Howard missed his third consecu- tive game with a torn labrum in his right shoulder and Gasol, his replacement, appeared to injure his right foot with a little more than 4 minutes remaining. Brook Lopez capitalized on the Lakers’ center woes to finish with 30 points and 11 rebounds but he was the Nets’ only offense down the stretch in their fourth loss in six games. PACERS 114, HAWKS 103 INDIANAPOLIS — Paul George scored 29 points to lead Indiana to its 15th straight home win. David West had 15 points and seven rebounds and George Hill added 15 points and eight assists to help the Pacers to their fourth straight victory overall and their longest home win streak in 13 years. Jeff Teague had 24 points and eight assists and Al Horford had 15 points and eight rebounds to lead the Hawks, who have lost three of their last four. The Pacers went on a 7-2 run mid- way through the fourth quarter. Lance Stephenson scored on a layup before Hill hit a 3-pointer with 6:28 left to play to give the Pacers a 100-84 lead, their largest advantage of the game.

SUNS 96, GRIZZLIES 90 MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Goran Dragic scored 15 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter to lead Phoenix past Memphis. Dragic, who had just two points on 1-for-6 shooting through three quar-

ters, was 5-for-6 in the fourth, including converting three 3-point plays to help the Suns snap a 2-game losing streak. After the score was tied at 88, Dragic scored six straight points to put the game away. Marcin Gortat led the Suns with

20 points on 8-for-10 shooting from

the field, while Jermaine O’Neal had

14 points. Kendall Marshall added 11

points and Luis Scola finished with 10. Jerryd Bayless scored a season- high 29 points on 11-for-15 shooting, including 3-of-4 on 3-pointers, to lead the Grizzlies. Zach Randolph had 21 points and 13 rebounds; Tayshaun Prince scored 11. NUGGETS 112, BUCKS 104 DENVER — Danilo Gallinari and Ty Lawson each scored 22 points to help rally Denver for its seventh straight victory. The Nuggets withstood Samuel Dalembert’s career-high 35 points and trailed by 17 points in the first half before coming back to beat the Bucks for the fifth time in a row and get their longest winning streak overall in more than two years. Corey Brewer added 20 points and Kenneth Faried 13 points and rebounds for the Nuggets, who didn’t lead in the game until late in the fourth quarter. Dalembert finished 17-for-21 from the floor in surpassing his previous career high of 27 points on March 14, 2011, against Golden State while with Sacramento.

Lady Jays declaw Panthers


DELPHOS — The St. John’s girls cagers used their

interior strength to shoot 55.3 percent from the floor in dis- patching visiting Paulding 52-34 in non-league action Monday night inside Robert

A. Arnzen Gymnasium.

Senior Katie Vorst led the Lady Blue Jays (8-10) with

15 points, six boards and three assists, while junior Emilie Fischbach hit three treys en route to nine markers. The Jays shot 21-of-38 from the floor, 5-of-15 beyond the arc. “We felt Katie and (fresh- man) Sydney (Fischbach) had an advantage inside and they were both active and aggressive. They were most effective when we moved the ball well, as we did at times tonight,” Jays’ mentor Dan.

J. Grothouse asserted. “We

did a decent job of getting the ball inside and those two did a nice job of either scor- ing or kicking it back out for open shots.” For the Lady Panthers (4-15), junior Sierra McCullough and junior Abby Pease had nine apiece as they canned 13-of-34 shots (1-of-8 3-pointers) for 38.2 percent. “We couldn’t match up with them inside. Our tallest girl is 5-9 and we physically couldn’t match up; we didn’t have the help-side defense we needed,” Panther head coach Lyndsi Schultz explained. “That’s why we went zone when we did, trying to contain them inside and hoping they weren’t hitting from the outside. You have to pick your poison a little bit when you’re in our situation; they hit some threes and that was that.” The Jays led from start to finish, once Vorst powered in a deuce 31 ticks into the contest. In fact, Vorst scored eight of the team’s 12 points in the opening period as both squads ran deliberate offens- es against the other’s man- to-man defensive schemes. Pease scored the first points for the Panthers at 6:12. When junior Amanda Boberg hit a 19-footer from the left wing with 46 ticks on the clock, the Blue and Gold led 12-5. The hosts hit 6-of-11 shots in the canto versus 1-of-4 for the visitors, forcing four of their 11 turnovers as the Panthers struggled to get many open looks against the Blue Jay defense. Paulding had a better go of it in quarter 2, with six play- ers getting at least a point in the period, in netting 4-of-11.

Vorst and junior Erica Saine netted three markers each. Jays led 37-21 on a Fischbach bomb at 1:11 but McCullough dropped a 19-footer from the left side with a tick left for a 37-23 edge. The Jays’ lead never fell below 10 and reached as high as the final margin as the benches emptied as the quar- ter went on. Six Jays (led by Vorst’s 4) scored at least a point, while McCullough and senior Abbey Edwards (4 assists) led the Panthers with four each. “Defensively, we did a decent job overall,” Grothouse added. “We had a couple of breakdowns but generally, we played solid team defense. We had good help-side and didn’t give up many easy

However, the Jays had a bit better go of it, even when the Panthers switched to a 1-2-2 zone that they extended some full-court. The Jays led by 10 twice in the stanza — at 22-12 (deuce by fresh- man Sydney Fischbach) and 25-15 (3-ball by senior Casey Schnipke) with 45 ticks on the board. However, the guests’ Pease put back a third- chance opportunity with 18 ticks remaining to get them within 25-17 at the half. The trend of the game continued into the third quar- ter: the Panthers did OK but the Jays were better. Pease, McCullough and sophomore Brooke Combs scored baskets for the visitors, while Emilie Fischbach drilled a pair of treys against the Panther zone and

We’ve been keeping games close but, as tonight, teams pull away at the end.” St. John’s counted 5-of-7 freebies (71.4%); secured 20

Cleveland in 1996, told fans the team had fulfilled a promise to go to New Orleans and win. “The city of Baltimore — I love you for ever and ever and ever and ever,” Lewis told fans in front of City Hall. NEW ORLEANS — Concerned the Superdome might not be able to handle the energy needed for its first Super Bowl since Hurricane Katrina, officials spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on upgrades to decayed utility lines, accord- ing to documents obtained by The Associated Press. The improvements apparently weren’t enough, however, to pre- vent a 34-minute power outage dur- ing the third quarter of the game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Two days later, officials still had not pinpointed the cause of the out- age. The Superdome’s management company, SMG, and the utility that supplies the stadium, Entergy New Orleans, announced that they would hire outside experts to investigate. NEW YORK — The Super Bowl was streamed online by 3 mil- lion people, an increase from the 2.1 million who watched the big game online last year, according to CBS. Sunday’s game was streamed for free by both and, as well as via Verizon on mobile. The 3 million unique viewers showed that while the tele- vised broadcast is still more desir- able to most viewers, increasing numbers are following the Super Bowl online. The game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers was seen on TV by an average of 108.7 million people, down from the last two years but still ranking as the third most-watched show in U.S. TV history after the last two Super Bowls. ALLEN PARK, Mich. — The Detroit Lions released two veteran starters, cutting DE Kyle Vanden Bosch and OG Stephen Peterman. SOCCER SINGAPORE — Revelations that a Singapore-based crime syn- dicate has been involved in fixing

soccer matches around the world has put extra pressure on authorities in the Southeast Asian city-state to take action against the alleged ringleader. The Singaporean businessman known as Dan Tan was placed on Italy’s wanted list and has been implicated in various investigations into soccer corruption, including Monday’s revelations in The Hague by the European police agency Europol. He has avoided arrest in his homeland. The Singapore Police Force said over the weekend it was assist- ing the Italian authorities through Interpol and has given information requested by the National Central Bureau in Rome but had not charged Tan. The 18-month review by Europol uncovered 380 suspicious matches in Europe and another 300 question- able games outside the continent, mainly in Africa, Asia and South and Central America. The contests included World Cup qualifiers and Champions League matches.

TENNIS VINA DEL MAR, Chile — Rafael Nadal won his first match since being out more than seven months nursing a sore knee. The former No. 1-ranked Nadal partnered with Juan Monaco to defeat the Czech pair of Frantisek Cermak and Lukas Dlouhy 6-3, 6-2 in the VTR clay-court tournament. Nadal had not played since June 28 when he lost in the second round of Wimbledon by qualifier Lukas Rosol. The problem with his knee has lingered despite on-going ther- apy.

Q: Who is the youngest person to climb Mount Everest? -- J.K., Salem, Ore. A: On May 22, 2010, American climber

Jordan David Romero reached the summit of the world’s tallest mountain; he was 13 years, 10 months and 10 days old. With him were his father, Paul Romero; his father’s girlfriend, Karen Lundgren; and three Sherpas. Later, Jordan and Katherine Blanc wrote a book titled “The Boy Who Conquered Everest: The Jordan Romero Story.” The book is still available. By the way, Katsusuke Yanagisawa,

a former schoolteacher from

Japan, is the oldest person

to climb Mount Everest.

Yanagisawa was 71 when he scaled the mountain in 2007. Q: I saw a made-for- TV movie with Michael Landon, “Where Pigeons Go

to Die.” To my knowledge, it

has never been made avail-

able on DVD. Why? -- A.S., Glendora, Calif. A: Michael Landon (1936-1991) wrote and

directed the 1990 film, which was based on the novel by R. Wright Campbell. The film starred Art Carney and was nominated for two Emmy awards. The movie is avail- able on DVD. Q: There was a comedy show on TV that guaran- teed you would laugh or you would be given a dollar. What was the name of the show? -- G.T., Stowe, Vt. A: “Minding the Store,”

a 2005 reality show starring

Pauly Shore, did make such an offer. The show was based on Shore attempting to revi-

talize his acting career while running the fam- ily business, the Comedy Store. It is my under- standing that the complainer had to enclose

a stamped, self-addressed envelope with the

request and that only the first 250,000 requests would be honored. In reality, not enough people laughed and the series was canceled after a short run. By the way, the Comedy Store

Evergreen Terrace. Evergreen Terrace is named after The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash., which is the alma mater of “Simpsons” creator Matt Groening. Extra trivia: Groening’s parents are named Homer and Margaret (Marge), and his younger sisters are Lisa and Margaret (Maggie). Bart is an anagram for brat.

The movie is about the meanest villain in the West who falls for a pretty schoolmarm. She then tries to change his ways. The movie, which I have never seen, is available on DVD and VHS. Q: I was only a kid, but I have fond recol- lections of my paternal grandfather. One of his favorite sayings was that someone should be “hung higher than a Jillroy kite.” I never knew what it meant. Long after he was gone and I was an adult, I asked my father, but he had no clue as to its meaning. Can you help? Oh, my grandparents were from Devon, England. --T.M., Peabody, Mass. A: The name is Gilderoy, and to “hang higher than Gilderoy’s kite” means to be pun- ished more severely than other criminals for the same offense. The name Gilderoy comes from “Gillie Roy,” the Scottish nickname for a red-haired lad. Gilderoy was the nickname of the thief Patrick MacGregor, who, of course, had bright red hair. It is said that Gilderoy once picked the pocket of Cardinal Richelieu while in the pres- ence of the king. He even picked the pocket of England’s Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell. Luck ran out for Gilderoy and his cohorts, who were caught and sentenced much more harshly than normal for their crimes. After their release, the gang retaliated and hanged the judge. It took authorities maybe five sec- onds to figure out who performed this das- tardly deed. In 1636, the lads faced another judge who sentenced them to be hanged, with Patrick MacGregor to be hanged higher than the others. His body swung in the wind like a kite, 30 feet above the ground.

Strange bedfellows: Business, labor on immigration

By ERICA WERNER and JULIE PACE The Associated Press


Unlikely allies, business and labor leaders joined in sup- port of the White House’s immigration overhaul efforts Tuesday while also launch- ing high-stakes negotiations

to overcome an issue that has

split them before — creat- ing a guest-worker program to ensure future immigrants

come to the U.S. legally. The broad agreement on a need for immigration changes and

a pathway to citizenship for

an estimated 11 million ille- gal immigrants already here is driven largely by self- interest. Both business and

labor see an overhaul of the nation’s broken immigration system as a way to boost eco- nomic competitiveness with other nations while increas- ing the ranks of workers and union members. For President Barack Obama, a partnership between factions that have often been at odds — both

with each other and with the White House — allows him to turn up pressure on Congress and try to isolate congressional Republicans who oppose parts of an immigration overhaul.

Obama held separate private meetings at the White House on Tuesday with labor lead- ers and top business execu- tives.

“This is all very encour- aging to have labor and business come together to explore what could be some common ground,” said Janet Murguia, president of the National Council of La Raza, a leading immigration rights groups. Murguia and other immigration activists joined Obama’s meeting with labor groups. Despite such optimistic public statements, the fragile business-labor alliance is still in question as the Chamber of Commerce meets with the AFL-CIO and other labor groups privately to hammer out details of how to deal with future immigrants who come to the U.S. to work. The labor and business groups

have been tasked by Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., with reaching a deal within weeks that can be included in legislation being crafted by a bipartisan Senate group, officials say. The guest worker issue helped scuttle the last attempt at a comprehensive overhaul of immigration law in 2007. If the parties can’t reach a deal, senators and their staffs are prepared to write tempo- rary-worker language them- selves, said a Senate aide, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because the aide was not authorized to discuss the private negotia- tions publicly. The Senate negotiating group has included a guest-

worker program in its immi- gration proposals, but Obama has not. That omission has drawn criticism from Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a key negotiator on the Republican side. Republicans view the omission as a cave-in to labor supporters, who see a sub- stantial new guest-worker program as a possible threat to Americans who are seek- ing jobs. White House officials say the president is open to a guest-worker program, so long as it protects workers and responds to workforce demands, not politics. That puts the White House in line with AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, who said following his meeting with

Obama on Tuesday that they discussed “a data-driven sys- tem that is actually driven by needs and not by aspirations of employers.” Even if overhaul legis- lation makes it through the Senate, trouble lies ahead in the Republican-controlled House. The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Tuesday the nation’s immigration system is “in desperate need of repair” as he opened an overhaul hear- ing. But he also said there are many questions about how any large-scale legaliza- tion program would work, how much it would cost and how it would prevent illegal immigration in future.

Protecting Mom and Dad’s money

Elder financial abuse is “the ultimate betrayal,” says Colleen Toy White, a superior court judge in Ventura County, Calif., who sees roughly 40 cases of such abuse each month. “It’s shocking to see how vulnerable the elder per- son is.” Consumer Reports has written about scams by strang- ers, among them fraudulent sweepstakes phone calls and investments, and grandpar- ent scams. Far more insidi- ous are deceptions by neigh- bors, friends, employees and relatives -- the very people entrusted to care for and pro- tect seniors. PROTECT YOURSELF Preventing financial exploitation by the people you know might require taking legal precautions; at the very least you’ll need to have some uncomfortable conversations with friends and family. -- Hire the right profession- als. Engage a CPA or certified financial planner to handle such concerns as how much money you can withdraw safely from retirement funds. Hire an estate- planning attorney with elder- law expertise to write your will and power-of-attorney docu- ments; he or she can also craft trusts, which can limit relatives’ access to your money. A pro- fessional daily money manager can help you deal with bill pay- ing, insurance claims, phone calls to financial institutions and troubleshooting. -- Set up your documents. Consider carefully to whom you give power of attorney. Though legally that person is your fiduciary -- charged with acting in your best interest -- in practice he or she could do anything with your money, even without your knowledge. Don’t assume the person clos- est to you will do the best job; you might be better off giving it to someone more detached and financially secure. Experts told Consumer Reports that for no extra cost, the power- of-attorney document can be drawn up with limits, such as assigning a relative or friend to monitor the person with power of attorney, mandat- ing a periodic written report of financial transactions, or assigning joint powers of attorney, which requires two signatures on every check. -- Arrange your everyday accounts. Set up direct depos- it of payments such as tax refunds, pension benefits and Social Security. As of March 1, 2013, all Social Security benefits must be paid electron- ically or on a debit card. (Go

Dell to go private in $24.4B deal led by founder

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Slumping personal com- puter maker Dell is bow- ing out of the stock market in a $24.4 billion buyout that represents the largest deal of its kind since the Great Recession dried up the financing for such risky maneuvers.

The complex agreement announced Tuesday will allow Dell Inc.’s manage- ment, including eponymous founder Michael Dell, to attempt a company turn- around away from the glare and financial pressures of Wall Street. Dell stockholders will

be paid $13.65 per share to leave the company on its own. That’s 25 percent more than the stock’s price of $10.88 before word of the buyout talks trickled out three weeks ago. But it’s a steep markdown from the shares’ price of $24 six years ago when Michael Dell

returned for a second go- round as CEO. Dell shares rose 15 cents to close at $13.42, indicating that investors don’t believe a better offer is likely. The chances of a success- ful counter offer look slim, given the forces lined up behind the current deal.

Investing information is widely available

as a source of cash as needed.

I have $85,000 with a finan-

cial firm that has it invested

evenly between bonds and equity funds. These funds are basically stagnant. I also have

about $100,000 in an annu-

ity that I will be able to start collecting on at age 80. This will be up to a maximum of $11,000 per year for 10 years. I also have $4,000 in a

401(k), and $6,000 in a Roth IRA. Where should I invest?

I would guess long-term would be 10 to 20 years. I’d like some guidance from an impartial judge, as would many people in my situation.

-- R.C., Richmond, Va. DEAR R.C.: You’re not reading the same material I read, because ample informa- tion is published regularly on appropriate suggestions for

retirees. If you start reading

the financial section of your local newspaper and listening

to financial programs on the radio, you will have many good leads on the subject. But while generalities are fine, one size does not fit all. There are any number of financial advisers who specialize in helping retired folks stretch their assets so

they are comfortable for the rest of their lives. To do that, the advisers have to know

a great deal about you and

what you want to accomplish. I am absolutely confident that you should be able to

find someone locally through the newspaper, radio, TV

shows or ads who will gladly advise you and take over the handling of your assets. As an aside, keeping

$35,000 in a savings account that earns less than 1 percent

is foolish. There are places

where you can earn 4-5 per- cent and still have your mon- ey available to you as needed (with small but real risk). DEAR BRUCE: I have a 17-month-old granddaughter and would like to give her $100 for each birthday and $100 at Christmastime. At first I thought of a Coverdell account for her, but with no more money than that per

year, it seems rather fruitless, and I know fees are involved.

I don’t think I can count on her parents or anyone else to contribute. Should I just open some sort of savings account or an

educational savings account? Two hundred dollars per year doesn’t add up to much, but I’d like to put it somewhere other than under the mattress.

gest lots of things to you, including U.S. savings bonds, savings accounts, small stock accounts, etc. Without denigrating your generosity, the gifts you describe will not amount to much, even when your grand- daughter reaches adulthood. You say you can’t count on the parents to contribute to a fund, which tells me there are things that might make this child’s life more pleasant.

Instead of worrying about saving for the future (this doesn’t sound like me!), why not think about some little things you could buy with $200 a year that would make her life more comfortable and fun -- perhaps a toy that her parents can’t afford. I wouldn’t lose a lot of sleep over the future, but I would try to make her life now as pleasant as possible. DEAR BRUCE: My hus- band received a settlement of $25,000 and would like to invest it and forget about it. We are relatively young, 39 and 38. We both have good jobs, so we don’t need this money. We would like to let it grow until one day when we do need it. What are your suggestions? -- S.P., via email DEAR S.P.: With the state of the economy at present, bank accounts and CDs are paying practically nothing. There are some good deals out there in the stock market.


If you have the stomach for it and think you can afford to do without the $25,000 for a substantial period, the place to be is in some type of aggressive mutual fund or funds. If you’re not familiar with the fund market, it’s time that you make the effort. Begin your research by reading financial magazines such as Money and Forbes, as well as the business sections of local and national newspapers. With the amount of mon- ey you have to invest, you’re going to have to do it your- self. Since you work hard for your money, it seems to me that it’s worth investing some time and effort to learn the language of investing and the options that are open to you.
