Trial set to open for Gulf oil spill litigation
BY MICHAEL KUNZELMAN The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Nearly three years after a deadly rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico triggered the nation’s worst offshore oil spill, a federal judge in New Orleans is set to preside over a high-stakes trial for the raft of litigation spawned by the disaster. Barring an 11th-hour settlement, U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier will hear several hours of opening statements today by lawyers for the companies involved in the 2010 spill and the plaintiffs who sued them. And the judge, not a jury, ultimately could decide how much more money BP PLC and its partners on the ill-fated drilling project owe for their roles in the environmental catastrophe. BP has said it already has racked up more than $24 billion in spill-related expenses and has estimated it will pay a total of $42 billion to fully resolve its liability for the disaster that killed 11 workers and spewed millions of gallons of oil. But the trial attorneys for the federal government and Gulf states and private plaintiffs hope to convince the judge that the company is liable for much more. With billions of dollars on the line, the companies and their courtroom adversaries have spared no expense in preparing for a trial that could last several months. Hundreds of attorneys have worked on the case, generating roughly 90 million pages of documents, logging nearly 9,000 docket entries and taking more than 300 depositions of witnesses who could testify at trial. “In terms of sheer dollar amounts and public attention, this is one of the most complex and massive disputes ever faced by the courts,” said Fordham University law professor Howard Erichson, an expert in complex litigation. Barbier has promised he won’t let the case drag on for years as has the litigation over the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill, which still hasn’t been completely resolved. He encouraged settlement talks that already have resolved billions of dollars in spill-related claims. “Judge Barbier has managed the case actively and moved it along toward trial pretty quickly,” Erichson said. In December, Barbier gave final approval to a settlement between BP and Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee lawyers representing Gulf Coast businesses and residents who claim the spill cost them money. BP estimates it will pay roughly $7.8 billion to

— Howard Erichson, Fordham University law professor resolve tens of thousands of these claims, but the deal doesn’t have a cap. BP resolved a Justice Department criminal probe by agreeing to plead guilty to manslaughter and other charges and pay $4 billion in criminal penalties. Deepwater Horizon rig owner Transocean Ltd. reached a separate settlement with the federal government, pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge and agreeing to pay $1.4 billion in criminal and civil penalties. But there’s plenty left for the lawyers to argue about at trial, given that the federal government and Gulf states haven’t resolved civil claims against the company that could be worth more than $20 billion. The Justice Department and private plaintiffs’ attorneys have said they would prove BP acted with gross negligence before the blowout of its Macondo well on April 20, 2010. BP’s civil penalties would soar if Barbier agrees with that claim. BP, meanwhile, argues the federal government’s estimate of how much oil spewed from the well — more than 200 million gallons — is inflated by at least 20 percent. Clean Water Act penalties are based on how many barrels of oil spilled. Barbier plans to hold the trial in at least two phases and may issue partial rulings at the end of each. The first phase, which could last three months, is designed to determine what caused the blowout and assign percentages of blame to the companies involved. The second phase will address efforts to stop the flow of oil from the well and aims to determine how much crude spilled into the Gulf. The trial originally was scheduled to start a year ago, but Barbier postponed it to allow BP to wrap up its settlement with the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee.

NEW YORK (AP) — The historic cobblestone streets and 19th-century mercantile buildings near the water’s edge in lower Manhattan are eerily deserted, a neighborhood silenced by Superstorm Sandy. Just blocks from the tallmasted ships that rise above South Street Seaport, the windows of narrow brick apartment buildings are still crisscrossed with masking tape left by their owners before the storm. Store interiors are stripped down to plywood and wiring. Restaurants are chained shut, frozen in time, saddled with electrical systems that were ruined by several feet of salt water that raced up from the East River and through their front doors. “People have no clue that this corner of Manhattan has been hit so badly,” said Adam Weprin, manager of the Bridge Cafe, one of the city’s oldest bars that sits on a quiet street near the seaport. “Right now, it’s a ghost town and a construction site.” Nearly four months after the storm, roughly 85 percent of small businesses near the South Street Seaport are still boarded up. It could be months before some reopen, while others may never return. On Fulton Street, the wide tourist-friendly pedestrian walkway that comprises the seaport’s main shopping district, not a single one of the major chain stores — which include Coach, Ann Taylor and Brookstone — has reopened. Among local business owners, there is a pervasive sense that their plight has been ignored by the rest of the city. A state senator who represents the area estimates at least 1,000 jobs were lost in lower Manhattan — 450 of them in the seaport neighborhood alone. From its red wood-frame building in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Bridge Cafe has dealt with its share of changes over the last two centuries, including stints as a Civil War-era brothel and a bootlegging speakeasy during Prohibition. It has endured economic slumps, nor’easters and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But after the basement was flooded to the rafters and water destroyed the building’s wood foundation, Weprin faced the prospect of shutting its doors for good. “The neighborhood’s been beaten,” Weprin said. “You walk around here and it’s like Chernobyl. At night, it’s vacated.” The small businesses of the seaport were far less resilient than the neighboring skyscrapers that house many of lower Manhattan’s large financial companies. Some corporations were displaced for weeks after the storm, forced to relocate to temporary office space farther uptown while flood-damaged skyscrapers fixed their infrastructure and moved electrical systems to higher floors. Con Edison said 10 major buildings remained without power as of Feb. 13, most operating on emergency generators. At 110 Wall St., a 27-story office tower that occupies a full block near the New York Stock Exchange, all leases were terminated because the building was so badly damaged by flooding. It remains empty while its management company comes up with a long-term plan for weathering future storms.

TIPP CITY (AP) — Authorities in western Ohio say they’ve removed more than 100 farm animals from a horse rescue facility as part of an animal cruelty investigation. The Miami County Sheriff’s Office raided Serenity Horse Rescue near Tipp City on Sunday, following a six-month investigation. The Dayton Daily News reports that 100 to 150 animals — including several dozen horses, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks and peacocks — were relocated to an undisclosed location. No charges have been filed in the case. The animals were removed following reports of dead horses not being disposed of properly and someone living on property in an uninhabitable structure.

How automatic federal budget cuts may impact Ohio
The Associated Press TOLEDO — Ohio’s schools and defense industry stand to be among the state’s biggest losers in automatic cuts to the federal budget set to take hold this week, according to the a report from the White House as it seeks to avoid the impending economic fallout. The White House compiled the numbers from federal agencies and its own budget office. The numbers are based only on the $85 billion in cuts for this fiscal year, from March to September, that were set to take effect Friday. The White House said whether states could move money around would depend on individual state budget structures and specific programs. According to the White House, Ohio would lose: EDUCATION: — About $25.1 million in primary and secondary education funding, putting around 350 teacher and aide jobs at risk. — About $22 million for 270 teachers, aides and staff who help children with disabilities. — About 2,500 children would lose Head Start and Early Head Start early education services. DEFENSE: — About 26,000 civilian defense department employees would be furloughed, reducing gross pay by around $161.4 million in total. — Army base operation funding would be cut by about $1.9 million. — Funding for Air Force operations would be cut by about $3 million. ENVIRONMENT: — About $6,865,000 in funding to ensure clean water and air quality, as well as prevent pollution from pesticides and hazardous waste. — About $981,000 in grants for fish and wildlife protection. SENIORS: — About $820,000 would be cut for nutrition programs that pay for meals for seniors. LAW ENFORCEMENT:

Ohio’s exotic animal facility has tight security
REYNOLDSBURG (AP) — A new high security building just outside Columbus has cameras, steel cages and a giant fence with electrified wire to hold tigers, snakes and other exotic animals. The few creatures in the cages right now are a stuffed lion, monkey and snake, but the state’s new Dangerous Wild Animal Temporary Holding Facility is ready for its first animals, The Columbus Dispatch reported. The facility is a result of the new Ohio law that requires owners to register exotic animals such as lions, tigers and some snakes. It’s designed to temporarily house dozens of exotic animals confiscated under the new law. Officials can seize animals if the owners don’t meet state requirements or are found housing animals without permits. The law came about after a suicidal eastern Ohio man released dozens of bears, mountain lions and tigers, from his farm in 2011 near Zanesville. Authorities killed 48 of the animals, which included black bears, Bengal tigers and African lions, fearing for the public’s safety. The Ohio Department of Agriculture’s holding facility cost $2.9 million and was built in less than three months. “We’re ready to take an animal today,” state agriculture Director David Daniels told The Dispatch. Security will be tight and access will be limited. The

— About $455,000 in grants for law enforcement, prosecution, courts and other crime-related programs. HEALTH: — About $344,000 in funding for vaccinations, leaving around 5,040 children without vaccines for diseases such as measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, whooping cough, influenza, and Hepatitis B. — About $1.1 million to respond to public health threats including infectious diseases, natural disasters, and biological, chemical, nuclear, and radiological events. — About $3.3 million to place about 4,200 people in substance abuse programs.

DAYTON (AP) — A new report says fights and disturbances have increased at a now privatized state prison in northeast Ohio. The Correctional Institutions Inspection Committee’s report documents findings from a surprise committee visit last month to the Lake Erie Correctional Institution in Conneaut. The report says the committee found a high presence of gang activity, illegal substance abuse and frequent extortion among other problems. The report also says prison staff hesitated to use appropriate force and noted low staff morale. The Dayton Daily News reports a Corrections Corp. of America spokesman disputes the findings. He says there have been significant security upgrades and gang activity declined since the company took over the prison last January.

Report: fights up at private prison in Ohio

CHARDON (AP) — A group from Virginia Tech is returning to northeast Ohio this week to help Chardon High School students cope with the first anniversary of a cafeteria shooting that left three classmates dead. Some Chardon High students have already formed a bond with leaders of the movement at Virginia Tech — site of a 2007 mass shooting — designed to help students move beyond tragedy by changing the way they treat each other. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that about a dozen college students have already made trips to Ohio in advance of Wednesday’s anniversary. The college group is working with Chardon teens to mentor students in elementary and middle schools. They want helping others to be an outlet for the students to heal.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The victim of a fatal weekend hotel balcony fall in Cincinnati has been identified as a 24-year-old Indiana man. The Hamilton County coroner said Alexander Crouch died of massive trauma after the fall from the 16th floor of the Garfield Suites Hotel early Sunday. The coroner told The Cincinnati Enquirer that Crouch, who lived near Indianapolis, was in town for a birthday party. Hotel officials told the coroner’s office that the men at the party had been drinking. Toxicology tests are pending to determine if Crouch was intoxicated. His parents were notified of his death Sunday.

building won’t be open to the public. The cages for the largest animals measure 12 by 18 by 10 feet. Some were built solid metal walls to stop them from trying to attack other animals. The building has an interior gate, a double metal exterior wall, and a 12-foot fence. There are 17 surveillance cameras too. What is unknown is how many animals it will end up housing. There are no reliable numbers for how many exotic animals and snakes are in the hands of private owners in the state. “We know there are additional animals out there,” Daniels said.

“If people behaved in the way nations do they would all be put in straitjackets.” — Tennessee Williams (1911-1983)

White House details budget fallout amid blame game
By PHILIP ELLIOTT The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The White House has detailed the potential fallout in each state from budget cuts set to take effect at week’s end, while congressional Republicans and Democrats keep up the sniping over who’s to blame. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said on “Fox News Sunday” that there was little hope to dodge the cuts “unless the Republicans are willing to compromise and do a balanced approach.” No so fast, Republicans interjected. “I think the American people are tired of the blame game,” Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” Yet just a moment before, she was blaming President Barack Obama for putting the country on the brink of massive spending cuts that were initially designed to be so unacceptable that Congress would strike a grand bargain to avoid them. The $85 billion budget mechanism could affect By RICHARD LARDNER The Associated Press everything from commercial flights to classrooms to meat inspections. With Friday’s deadline nearing, few in the nation’s capital were optimistic that a realistic alternative could be found. And, yes, those cuts will hurt. They would slash from domestic and defense spending alike, leading to furloughs for hundreds of thousands of government workers and contractors. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has said the cuts would harm the readiness of U.S. fighting forces. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said travelers could see delayed flights. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said 70,000 fewer children from lowincome families would have access to Head Start programs. And furloughed meat inspectors could leave plants idled. White House officials pointed to Ohio — home of House Speaker John Boehner — as one state that would be hit hard: $25.1 million in education spending and another $22 million for students with disabilities.

The killers, figuratively speaking, are the diversity trainers who numb the human mind with slogans and rote instruction on emotional correctness. Would that it were unnecessary to say “figuratively speaking,” but in an era when fundamentalist literalism is on the rise, it is always necessary to be perfectly, perfectly clear. Signal: The following may include exaggerations, sarcasm and, possibly, snark, all intended to make life somewhat more bearable. Then again, hyperbole is superfluous when real life is so absurdly over the top. Thanks to Judicial Watch, the conservative-leaning watchdog group, and The Daily Caller, we recently have learned about the United States Department of Agriculture’s magical diversity training programs, i.e. “professional development opportunities,” wherein employees learn how they ought really to “think” about things. Lessons include such angst-inspiring tropes as the U.S. has destroyed other nations, we all commit sins of discrimination, and America should repent and stop being so proud of itself. More or less.


GOP governors take a pragmatic turn

Listen up ladies! Uncle Sam might want you too
WASHINGTON — Tennnnnn-hut, ladies! The next time Uncle Sam comes calling, he’s probably going to want you, too. The Obama administration’s recent decision to lift the ban on women in combat has opened the door for a change in the law that currently compels only men between age 18 and 25 to register for a military draft, according to legal experts and military historians. Never before has the country drafted women into military service, and neither the administration nor Congress is in a hurry to make them register for a future call-up. But, legally, they may have no other choice. It is constitutional to register only men for a draft, the Supreme Court ruled more than three decades ago, because the reason for registration is to create a pool of potential combat troops should a national emergency demand a rapid increase in the size of the military. Women were excluded from serving in battlefield jobs, so there was no reason to register them for possible conscription into the armed forces, the court held. Now that front-line infantry, armor, artillery and special operations jobs are open to female volunteers who can meet the physical requirements, it will be difficult for anyone to make a persuasive argument that women should continue to be exempt from registration, said Diane Mazur, a law professor at the University of Florida and a former Air Force officer. “They’re going to have to show that excluding women from the draft actually improves military readiness,” Mazur said. “I don’t see how you can make that argument.” Groups that backed the end of the ban on women in combat also support including women in draft registration as a matter of basic citizenship. Women should have the same civic obligations as men, said Greg Jacob, a former Marine Corps officer and policy director for the Service Women’s Action Network. “We see registration as another step forward in terms of equality and fairness,” Jacob said. The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., supports draft registration for women, according to his spokeswoman. Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., who heads the House Armed Services Committee, hasn’t made up his mind. McKeon said through a spokesman that he’s awaiting a Defense Department report due in the coming weeks that will assess the legal impact of lifting the ban on women in combat on draft registration. But if you’re worried a draft notice is going to soon be in your mailbox, take

dren from low-income families would also be removed from Head Start programs. Officials said their analysis showed Kentucky would lose $93,000 in federal funding for a domestic abuse program, meaning 400 fewer victims being served in Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home state. Georgia, meanwhile, would face a $286,000 budget cut to its children’s health programs, meaning almost 4,200 fewer children would receive vaccinations against measles and whooping cough. The White House compiled its state-by-state reports from federal agencies and its own budget office. The numbers reflect the impact of cuts this year. Unless Congress acts by Friday, $85 billion in cuts are to take effect from March to September. As to whether states could move money around to cover shortfalls, the White House said that depends on state budget structures and the specific programs. The White House did not have a list of which states or programs might have flexibility. a deep breath. There is no looming national crisis that makes a military draft likely. A draft would be enormously unpopular; a new poll by Quinnipiac University found that American voters firmly oppose a return to conscription. Also, adding women to the mix just doesn’t appear to be a high priority for a battle-weary nation nearing the end of a decade of war. The U.S. military has been an all-volunteer force for the past 40 years and women have become an integral part of it. Nearly 15 percent of the 1.4 million troops on active duty are female. More than 280,000 women have served in Iraq, Afghanistan or other countries in support of the wars. There have been 152 women killed in the fighting. Americans overwhelmingly support allowing female volunteers to serve in ground combat roles by a 75-25 margin, according to the Quinnipiac poll. But the survey of 1,772 registered voters found them conflicted over mandated military service for women. On the question of reestablishing a military draft, male and female voters said they were opposed, 65-28, according to the poll. If a draft were called, however, men backed the conscription of women as well as men, by 59-36, the poll said. But 48 percent of the women surveyed said they did not want women to be drafted while 45 percent said they should be.

Droning on about feelings

Point of View
One does not have to be a flag-waving, uber-patriot to find this sort of mind-training repugnant, though watching clips of the USDA sessions might help one better understand the recent rush to collect ammunition. (Ahem: I am merely making an observation here, not suggesting behaviors that some might find troubling or offensive; one wishes it were unnecessary to say.) The sessions recently highlighted are not new. Most corporate employees — and all American students — have been exposed to this weeminded busy-ness. More than a decade ago, I wrote that the demise of newspapers was owing more to the Human Resources Department than to the explosion of the Internet. The “tidy-desk memo mentality” of management beancounters began killing newspapers long before pajamaclad bloggers began mastering hyperlinks. Once you kill the spirit, the rest is a matter of decomposition. Exhibit A this go-round is sensitivity trainer Samuel Betances of Souder, Betances

Moderately confused

and Associates, who appears in clips culled from a 3.5hour “Cultural Sensitivity Training” session that have been featured prominently in conservative media in recent days. As detailed by Caroline May at The Daily Caller, Betances leads a group through a process of selfenlightenment. (See sarcasm note above.) “I want you to say: ‘If we work for a federal agency.’ Say that. (Audience repeats) ‘We have discriminated in the past.’ (Audience repeats) Say: ‘Every federal agency,’ (Audience repeats) ‘has discriminated against AfricanAmericans,’ (Audience repeats) ‘Hispanics,’ (Audience repeats) ‘Native American Indians,’ (Audience repeats) ‘and other groups’ (Audience repeats),” Betances preaches. In other clips, Betances regales his audience with a little history lesson. Not only did the U.S. steal the lands that are increasingly being populated by illegal immigrants (Texas, California, Arizona) — hence, implicitly, they have a right to re-occupy — but America’s founding fathers took their governing cues from Native Americans. Oh, and they stole their symbol, too — the bald eagle. Well, gosh, I feel so bad about all this that I’d like to cede the lower U.S. to Mexico and adopt the chicken as the national symbol.

There’s no end to the ways by which nations can make recompense to those whose fates were altered by history. Shouldn’t we all just pack up and return whence we came? This is, of course, emotional extortion designed to engineer behavior while enriching people who have invented an industry around the notion that people can be numbed into niceness and, therefore, more easily managed. It is helpful to recall that drones are also stingless bees. There was a time when such lessons, otherwise known as manners, were taught in every American home. Said homes were not privileged in most cases but they were occupied by a mother and father who, though they perhaps did not adore each other every waking moment, were at least committed to the mutual task of rearing thoughtful, wellbehaved children. Sensitivity training, alas, is one of the many legacies of our sundering of the family, which has led necessarily to greater dependence on third parties to instruct and order. We are unlikely to hear much about that in the next government diversity seminar and, soon enough, there will be none left to recognize that there is something wrong with this picture.

Knights hold off Lady Jays, Lancers slip by Wildcats in tourney
the Lady Knight lead to nine and force a St. John’s timeout. “That was huge. She’s done that all year… Those were two big shots to get it back up to nine. Without those shots, it’s anybody’s game,” explained Rickard. Sophomore forward Lindsey Motycka then added a single free throw to give Crestview a 40-30 lead with three minutes to play in the game. Crestview began to eat clock and the teams traded baskets to keep the Lady Knight lead at 10. The Lady Jays got a pair of free throws from senior forward Katie Vorst and a steal-and-score from sophomore guard Tara Vorst to draw within six late but Crestview made 5-of-7 free throws down the stretch to take the 46-40 win. St. John’s hit on only 3-of8 in the first quarter and 3-of7 in the second. The 40-percent clip in the first half was something St. John’s mentor Dan J. Grothouse pointed to. “I thought we really battled. I’m proud of our kids and how we came out, played and defended,” Grothouse said. “I thought early in the game, we got some decent looks at the basket and didn’t get the opportunity to score. You’ve got to keep scoring with Crestview because they’ve got different kids who can score from the outside, score from the inside and go off the dribble, so you’ve got to keep up with them in terms of scoring. I thought we got decent looks and just didn’t knock some shots down.” For the game, the Lady Jays shot 38 percent (14-of37) to Crestview’s 59 percent (16-of-27). St. John’s got the extra shots due to 11 Lady Knight turnovers, while committing seven of its own. The Lady Knight scoring versatility showed in the scoring column. Freshman forward Emily Bauer led the team with 12 points, Riggenbaugh had 11 and Motycka added nine. “We had a lot of girls step up. You see our scoring; again it was closely balanced tonight,” Rickard added. “If you take someone out of the game, someone else is going to step up. That’s been our game all year.” Bauer had six rebounds and three blocks. The Lady Knights grabbed 17 boards to 11 for St. John’s. Vorst led the Lady Jays in her final game in the blue-andgold with 18 points ,including an 8-of-8 clip from the charity stripe. The next closest scorer was freshman forward Sydney Fischbach with six. “We needed Katie to step up and she did,” Grothouse added. “Her will was that she wasn’t going to lose. She took the ball to the basket; she did everything she could to give us an opportunity. I’m not sure she even came off the floor for 32 minutes. What a great effort. I thought rebounding was a key; a lot of times we lost a rebound and they were able to get another possession and score.” In the nightcap, the Lady Lancers started off quickly. Julia Thatcher started the scoring and Katie Dye followed that with a basket on the next possession to take a 4-0 lead. After a free throw by Rileigh Stockwell, Kaitlyn Brant and Dye hit consecutive baskets to push the Lady Lancers’ lead to 8-1 with three minutes to play in the first. Later in the quarter with the score 11-3, the Lady Wildcats made a comeback. Stockwell hit an easy shot, followed by two free throws by Hannah Sensibaugh to make the score 11-7, which is where the first quarter ended. Claire Dye hit a basket to begin the second quarter for Lincolnview to make the score 13-7 but Jefferson continued its comeback. Stockwell hit two straight baskets to get within three, then Katie Goergens added a bucket to cut the lead down to one. A few possessions later, Stockwell hit one out of two free throws to tie the game at 13. Both teams played the rest of the quarter even, ending the first half tied at 17-17. Late in the third quarter with the game still tied, this time at 27-27, Lincolnview took a 1-point lead on a free throw by Hannah McCleery. On the next possession, Brant hit a basket to give Lincolnview a 30-27 lead at the end of the third quarter. The Lady Lancers outscored Jefferson 9-2 to begin the fourth quarter to take a 39-29 lead. Katie Dye led the run with five points and Brant added the other four. The Lady Wildcats did not go away easily, though. Jefferson

She led the Jays in scoring with 18 Saturday night at the Van Wert Sectionals but the Knights got the win. (Delphos Herald/Tom Morris) By BRIAN BASSETT and SEAN LaFONTAINE DHI Correspondents VAN WERT - St. John’s gave Crestview all it could handle Saturday evening in the Division IV girls sectional final at Van Wert High School but the Lady Knights answered every Lady Jay run with a big shot and eventually held on for a 46-40 win. In the second game, the Lincolnview Lady Lancers and the Jefferson Lady Wildcats faced off. After a closely-contested game, the Lady Lancers held off Jefferson 49-43. Crestview will battle Kalida in the 6:15 p.m. opener of Thursday’s Lima Senior District semis, while Lincolnview tangles with Ottoville in the second game. In the first game Saturday, Crestview (21-2) led from start to finish after opening the first quarter on a 9-2 run. “We knew it was going to be a battle; everybody is 0-0 at this point. St. John’s played some good teams awful close,” Crestview coach Greg Rickard said. “They have got some good seniors on their team - good senior leadership. We knew it wasn’t going to be easy; we knew we were going to have to fight. We got off to a good start and just kind of held on.” St. John’s pulled within four, 12-8, at the end of a quarter but trailed 23-14 at the half. The Lady Jays (9-15) wouldn’t go away easily and pulled within four, 29-25, at the 42.4-second mark of the third quarter. Crestview sophomore forward Terra Crowle answered with a trey to return the Lady Knight lead to 32-25. Crestview got another huge shot early in the fourth, this time from sophomore point guard Mackenzie Riggenbach. Junior guard Amanda Boberg nailed a 3-pointer to bring St. John’s within four, 34-30. The shot seemingly turned the momentum to the Lady Jays but Riggenbach answered with a 15-foot jump shot to return the lead to six. Riggenbach drilled a trey on the ensuing possession to run

BLUFFTON — Ottoville’s girls basketball team has set a high standard in 2012-13, capturing the Division IV poll title and its fourth straight Putnam County League championship. The Lady Green has more to accomplish. They took their second step in the post-season by clobbering Columbus Grove 69-33 in the first game at Saturday night’s Bluffton Sectional final. In the nightcap, Kalida got revenge from a loss to Continental Feb. 14 with a 46-36 victory in the nightcap. Kalida will take on

Crestview in the 6:15 p.m. contest Thursday in the Lima Senior District semis; Ottoville will play Lincolnview at 8 p.m. If the Bulldogs (5-18) — who had a first-round bye — had any hopes of knocking off the Lady Green (23-0), they were dashed relatively quickly as Ottoville dropped in the first 10 points. Ottoville showed its inside-out balance early: with senior Rachel Turnwald (14 markers) striking for eight points from the outside and 6-2 senior Abby Siefker (17 counters, 8 boards) netted seven inside. For good measure, junior Taylor Mangas (14 markers - 4 treys; 4 steals, 3 assists) dropped a pair of bombs in

the span as they shot 8-of-15 from the floor in the period (4-of-7 downtown) against the Bulldog 3-2 zone. The Bulldogs had no such luck on the other end against the Lady Green long and lengthy 1-2-2 3/4-court press and man-to-man half-court, canning a mere 2-of-5 shots and turning it over eight times (18 for the night). When senior Rachel Beining hit the 1st-of2 singles with 2.7 ticks left, the Lady Green led 25-5. “The more balance, the better. That’s been the mark of this team for a number of years; its unselfishness,” Ottoville mentor Dave Kleman explained. “They aren’t afraid to share the ball to get better shots and when

you have that kind of balance, you are much tougher to defend. We have five or six girls that can lead us in scoring any given night. That’s our mentality in every phase of the game. It’s not just one or two looking to rebound, defend, pass the ball; it’s everybody.” Grove coach Chad Ricker reiterated a familiar lament for most coaches when facing the Lady Green the last few seasons. “You have to pick your poison. With their size inside, that is the first place you look to defend,” Ricker explained. “When you do that, you have to hope they aren’t hitting their perimeter shots. Well, they were; they hit four in the

first period alone and then you have no chance; we had had some success with our zone the last couple of games. When they have this type of balance, they are going to be tough to beat. They are also so good defensively; they do a lot of things well.” The scoring pace slowed for the Lady Green in the second period but Grove could not take advantage. Siefker continued her strong pace to dominate inside, scoring eight counters in the span. The Lady Green’s biggest lead of the half was 41-9 on two singles by Turnwald at 1:47 before Grove sophomore Sydney McCluer (8 markers) hit the 1st-of-2 freebies with 6.5 ticks to go for a 41-10

halftime scoreboard. If Grove had any chance of a rally in the second half, Ottoville took it right away. This time, it was senior Rachel Beining that set the pace, netting 10 of her 12 points in the third canto. Mangas also did her part, knocking down two more triples. When Beining hit a short banker in transition with 13 ticks on the clock, the Lady Green had their largest lead, 61-21. Ottoville went to its bench — as Kleman had done all game — and deeper to start the fourth and built up a 64-21 lead on a 3-ball by sophomore Courtney Von Sossan at 6:40 for the biggest margin of See BIG GREEN, page 7

The Herald — 7


(Continued from Page 6) the game. The Lady Bulldogs outscored their PCL colleagues 12-8 in the finale. “We just want to keep getting better and staying in a competitive mindset. That’s why we chose to not take the bye in the first round,” Kleman added. You want to keep playing and stay in condition; 10 days off is too much between games. You can get out of rhythm and sloppy; we wanted to stay focused and sharp.” The Green and Gold ended up 24-of-47 shooting (a stellar 8-of-15 long range) for 51.1 percent and 13-of-22 at the line (59.1%). They grabbed 24 rebounds (15 offensive) as Beining added seven. Senior Nicole Vorst delivered six assists and Annie Lindeman blocked three shots. Ottoville had nine miscues and 14 fouls. “It’s been a tough year; we’ve had a lot of injuries that we’ve had to deal with,” Ricker added. “The record doesn’t indicate the work these girls have put in. We lose three seniors: Breanne Halker, Melissa Amstutz and Renee Karhoff; and they have had to deal with injuries. They will be tough to replace because of their work ethic. We’ve had to play a lot of younger girls — we were young anyway — and because of this experience, we will be better off next year.” Grove totaled 12-of-42 shooting (2-of-13 beyond the arc) for 28.6 percent and 7-of12 singles (58.3%); 26 boards (12 offensive) as junior Sammi Stechschulte (8 markers) led with seven; and with 20 fouls. In the second game, Kalida had lost 32-26 Feb. 14 to Continental. They turned the tables with a solid second period that gave them the lead for good. “We played pretty good defense the last time but couldn’t score. If you can stop people, you have a chance to win, but you’re likely not going to win 2-0,” Kalida coach Adam Huber said. “Tonight, we just finished our shots better. Continental is such a tough defensive team; they are aggressive and physical. You aren’t going to get a lot of easy looks.” The Lady Pirates (15-8) rode senior Leva Weller (14 markers, 9 boards) for nine early points as the Lady Pirates built up a 13-9 lead after one, leading a 6-of-17 shooting canto. The LadyCats struggled shooting the ball (4-of-12) against a tough 2-1-2 Pirate zone and when Weller finished an and-1 with 2:06 showing, the Pirates led 13-9. Kalida did much better the second period of containing Weller, with much better help-side defense. She got the only Continental basket — at 34 seconds — while Kalida took the lead for good at 15-13 on a deuce by junior Elizabeth Turnwald at 6:32. They built a 19-15 halftime lead as Turnwald hit a pull-up 10-foot baseliner a second before the horn. Senior Vanessa Koppen-

(Continued from page 1) Wessell was lamenting a mistake that cost him; Leading 5-0 at the start of the second period, Boyd caught him for a quick takedown and pin just 25 seconds into the period “Just dumb, stupid mistakes and I got greedy. I thought I had to get the first throw and he caught me; it won’t happen again,” Wessell explained. “Sometimes, you have to go through that and learn the hard way. Fortunately, I get to wrestle next week and I can learn from my mistakes. Boyd’s a good wrestler to begin with.” Despite finishing as runner-up and not champion, Wessell was pleased — and relieved — with the two days as a whole, especially after he got hurt last year with state in his sights and couldn’t continue on. “It’s great to be going; it’s what you hope for. I was very hungry after the way it ended last year and how close I was,” Wessell added. “I, Colin and Geoff have been wrestling since kindergarten. We go at each other every day and have been for all these years. We’re the ‘Big 3’ and it’s nice to be going as a group. We had our skin issues this year throughout the lineup and some injuries and we’ve been fortunate to work through them. That makes it even better; we’ll go at it one more week and see if we can get on the podium.” Ketcham pointed out that all three have had good models to follow in the upper-weight classes for the Wildcats: Stuart and Curtis Miller, both individual champions and current coaches with the Wildcat program. “We watched them grow-

For the 220-pound district title, Jefferson’s Quinten Wessell gets the takedown on Travis Boyd (Blanchester) but is unable to get the pin before the period ended. Wessell was subsequently pinned on a similar takedown by Boyd in the following period. (Delphos Herald/Tom Morris) ing up and for a couple of years, we wrestled with Curtis. We want to follow in their footsteps; that’s been our goal for four years,” Ketcham explained. “We get to go against each other and them every day in practice. It’s so much better to go with all there instead of just one of us. We’ve been wrestling together since the Tri-County Wrestling Club.” Ketcham “knocked on wood” because he was the only one of the three that didn’t miss matches this year due to illness and injury. “I sprained an ankle at the NWC last year and finished sixth at District. I had a tough match today to get third,” he added. “I kind of just lost it Saturday — I lost my game — when I got beat (Nathan Jackson of Dayton Christian in the second round). I just never got it back until it was too late.” McConnahea, who was an alternate at the weight last year, recovered from his first loss of the season (5-3 loss to Kyle Dieringer of Versailles) in the semifinals. “I simply was not ready to wrestle that match; I was nervous and it got to me. In some ways, it might be helpful; the pressure of going unbeaten is off,” he explained. “I just went out in the last match and just wrestled. I knew I was going to state already so I could just go out and wrestle my match.” McConnahea figures that he isn’t even 100 percent yet after struggling mid-season. “I had that skin issue and then got mono. I had to miss matches and got back in time for the NWC meet,” he added. “We had two weeks off to get healthier and get back in shape. I’d say I’m around 85 percent, so hopefully by Thursday, I can be closer to 100 percent. “I have gone from the 152-pound class as a freshman to 171 as a sophomore and 195 last year. I just got a lot stronger.” Jefferson coach Mike Wilson was ecstatic. “They’ve been dominant hoffer hit a free toss at 6:58 and all season, even despite what Weller hit a spinner at 5:55 to they went through. They have get the Pirates within 19-18 but Kalida (16-8) steadied itself. Senior Summer Holtkamp hit a bomb at 5:20 to stop the momentum, starting a 7-1 spurt that got a 26-19 edge on a Kylie Welcome to a Osterhage basket at 3:40. The Pirates outscored the LadyCats 7-2 in the final three minutes, capped by a hoop-and-harm by Paige Ordway at 14.6 seconds left, to get within 28-26. Weller hit 1-of-2 singles at 7:15 of the fourth to get the Pirates within one — 28-27 — but no closer. The LadyCats turned it over four times in their first five possessions of the fourth (17 total) but the Pirates couldn’t take advantage. Up 30-29, sophomore Jackie Gardner (10 markers, 6 boards, 3 steals) hit a drive at 4:35 and then the freshman Osterhage took over. She scored 10 of her game-high 17 markers (5 boards) in the final 4:07, including 4-of-6 freebies. In all, Kalida netted 8-of-12 singles (8-of-14 for 57.2%) in the finale to close the deal. “Kylie is only a freshman in terms of her class; this is her 23rd game, so she isn’t inexperienced anymore,” Huber added. “She is one of our best shooters, if not the best: 50 percent from 3, 60 percent overall and 70 percent from the line. She has become more assertive lately and we needed that from her.” Kalida dropped in 18-of-41 shots (2-of-9 3-balls) for 43.9 percent; secured 36 caroms (9 offensive) as senior Amy Smith had eight; and 15 fouls. Continental shot a cold 13-of-53 (1-of-12 beyond the arc) for 24.5 percent and 9-of15 from charity (60%). They attracted 31 caroms, 15 offensive, and added 16 fouls and 11 errors.

worked hard for four years and they are seniors,” Wilson said. “They’ve had their hiccups during the season and today; they didn’t get to state the exact way we’d like but they are going. That’s all that matters; they get to wrestle there. We finished sixth as a team out of how many teams that were represented here, so that is pretty good. “It would have been nice for some others to have advanced but we had some injuries and tough draws.” Wilson also pointed out a fact. “This will be the first time that someone other than a Miller or a Swick qualified for state. The previous four that qualified for us had either of those names,” he added. Buettner was also glad to follow in the footsteps of his dad, Keith Buettner, after clinching his spot at Columbus. “He made it in 1984. He’s been helping me throughout my career with tips and other stuff,” the younger Buettner pointed out. As for this day, Sunderhaus got revenge on Buettner from a couple of weeks ago. “He wrestled better today; he was firmer on top and I struggled in the neutral position,” he added. “I know Coach (Derek) Sterling has had high expectations of me all year but the main reason I got this far was staying focused on one match at a time. That’s what the focus will be in getting ready this week; only looking to the match coming. I want to do the best I can and see how far I can go.” Two other locals: Spencerville senior 220-pounder Lucas Krouskop (default by Bath’s Kyle Lhamon) and Columbus Grove’s Alex Shaffer at 285 (2-1 defeat of Bath’s Caleb Neal; earned alternate places.

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 A number of restrictions that have hampered your progress in the past are likely to be gradually lessened or, in some cases, even totally removed in the year ahead. This will bring success within your grasp. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You’re likely to function far more effectively when you can operate independently. Sadly, you could be more of a hindrance in situations where teamwork is required. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Usually, you don’t blab things that should be kept to yourself, but today you might not be able to help telling on someone whom you really dislike. Try not to take the low road. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There are days when socializing can be a negative experience, and it could be one of those times. If you find this happening to you, make a quick exit. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Your peers could find your motives suspicious, so if you think this to be true, make certain everything you do is above reproach. If you try anything funny, you’ll be caught. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Even if you feel like sounding off to someone who really deserves it, it would be best that you don’t. Hold your tongue and count to 10 or even 20, if that’s what it takes to subdue your anger. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you find yourself involved in a financial transaction that requires a lot of paperwork, don’t get lazy and take things for granted. Read the fine print, down to the very last comma. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Friends will tolerate a bit of restlessness on your part, but not to the point of changing group plans. Be thoughtful about your behavior. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -When conversing with others, speak well of friends who aren’t present, or say nothing at all. Any comments you make will be repeated and even distorted to those being spoken about. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- To expedite certain tasks or assignments, you might be tempted to take a few shortcuts. Unfortunately, this might only cause more work for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It’ll reflect poorly on your image if you try to take credit for something that you had only a small part in producing. Don’t let your ego put you in an embarrassing position. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t overreact if another’s point of view is diametrically opposed to yours. Remember, everyone is entitled to express his or her opinion. Show them some respect. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- When left to your own devices, you’re pretty good at figuring things out. Complications could enter the picture, however, with comments by an unsolicited adviser. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2013 Several old but good relationships might be revived and revitalized in the year ahead. These wonderful and trustworthy friends will once again play constructive roles in your affairs, with everyone benefiting. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- There are always those times when we turn out to be the victor with something in which we are vulnerable. If you happen to take a beating in the early rounds today, keep this in mind. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Be as flexible as possible when trying to iron out the snags in an agreement. When you allow everything to be on the table during negotiations, the problems will dissolve. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Stay out of office politics as much as possible. Chances are nothing will be resolved, but the brouhaha it stirs up could unsettle you and affect your job performance. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Unless you match your activity with the clock, not everything you want to accomplish will get done. Don’t spend too much time on unanticipated interruptions. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t fight for what you want if you know that doing so will have detrimental side effects. What’s good for you might not be equally rewarding for the others involved. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Even though Lady Luck is willing to help you out, you might not notice her contribution until late in the game. Make some room for her to squeeze into the picture. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- When it comes to your financial affairs, be both careful and prudent by thinking first and acting second. If you reverse this order, you might not be able to clean up your mistakes. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- In negotiating a matter of importance, don’t be too hasty and accept what is first offered. If you aren’t getting exactly what you want, you should be able to improve your position. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Something that you work really hard on might not turn out as well as you expected. Conversely, that to which you devote little effort could go over like gangbusters. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Try to be tolerant and forgiving in involvements with both your family and friends. When you overlook their shortcomings, they, in turn, will overlook yours. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Although it might not be easy, a critical objective can be achieved. When Lady Luck sees that you are doing everything you can, she will lend a helping hand. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You’ll have good luck in fulfilling your expectations and hopes, but not necessarily in the way you expected. Unforeseen developments will cause you to scrap your original plans.

British Cardinal to skip papal conclave
BY GREGORY KATZ and NICOLE WINFIELD The Associated Press LONDON — Cardinal Keith O’Brien, Britain’s highest-ranking Catholic leader, says he is resigning as archbishop in the wake of misconduct allegations and will be skipping the conclave to elect a successor to Pope Benedict XVI. The cardinal said in a statement today that he will not attend because he doesn’t want media attention focused on him during the important session in Rome. Experts said the decision not to attend the papal conclave is unprecedented; never before has a cardinal stayed away from a conclave because of personal scandal, according to Vatican historian Ambrogio Piazzoni, the vice prefect of the Vatican library. The Vatican confirmed that O’Brien had resigned as archbishop of Saint Andrews and Edinburgh. It was accepted under the code of canon law due to O’Brien’s age; he turns 75 — the normal retirement age for bishops — on March 17. He said in a statement that he is in “indifferent health” and that he had offered his resignation last November. A church statement says the pope accepted O’Brien’s resignation on Feb. 18. “Looking back over my years of ministry: For any good I have been able to do, I thank God. For any failures, I apologize to all whom I have offended,” he said. O’Brien has said through his spokesman that he is contesting allegations made Sunday in a British newspaper that three priests and a former priest have filed complaints to the Vatican alleging that the cardinal acted inappropriately with them. The Observer newspaper did not name the priests, but it said their allegations date back to the 1980s. There were no details about the alleged inappropriate behavior. The one-sentence Vatican statement issued today made no reference to those allegations. A Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said Sunday the complaints had been channeled through the office of the papal nuncio — the Vatican’s ambassador — in London. “The pope has been informed, and the question is in his hands,” Lombardi said.

‘Argo’ wins best picture on scattered Oscar night
BY CHRISTY LEMIRE The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Just as Oscar host Seth MacFarlane set his sights on a variety of targets with a mixture of hits and misses, the motion picture academy spread the gold around to a varied slate of films. “Argo” won best picture as expected, along with two other prizes. But “Life of Pi” won the most awards with four, including a surprise win for director Ang Lee. “Les Miserables” also won three Academy Awards, while “Django Unchained” and “Skyfall” each took two. Among the winners were the front-runners throughout this lengthy awards season: best actor Daniel Day-Lewis for his deeply immersed portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg’s epic “Lincoln,” best actress Jennifer Lawrence as a troubled young widow in “Silver Linings Playbook” and supporting actress Anne Hathaway as the doomed prostitute Fantine in the musical “Les Miserables.” Christoph Waltz was a bit of a surprise for supporting actor as a charismatic bounty hunter in Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” an award he’d won just three years ago for Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds.” The 22-year-old Lawrence, who got to show her lighter side in the oddball romance “Silver Linings Playbook” following serious roles in “Winter’s Bone” and “The Hunger Games,” gamely laughed at herself as she tripped on the stairs en route to the stage in her poufy, pale pink Dior Haute Couture gown. Backstage in the press room, when a reporter asked what she was thinking, she responded: “A bad word that I can’t say that starts with ‘F.”’ Keeping journalists in hysterics, she explained, “I’m sorry. I did a shot before I … sorry.” That’s the kind of raunchiness MacFarlane himself seemed to be aiming for as host while also balancing the more traditional demands of the job. There was a ton of singing and dancing during the three-and-half-hour broadcast — no surprise from the musically minded creator of the animated series “Family Guy” — including a poignant performance from Barbra Streisand of “The Way We Were,” written by the late Marvin Hamlisch, during the memorial montage. But MacFarlane also tried to keep the humor edgy with shots at Mel Gibson, George Clooney, Chris Brown and Rihanna. An extended bit in which William Shatner came back from the future as his “Star Trek” character, Capt. James T. Kirk, had its moments while a joke about the drama “Flight” being restaged entirely with sock puppets was a scream. A John Wilkes Booth gag in reference to “Lincoln” was a bit of a groaner, perhaps intentionally, while MacFarlane relied on his alter ego, the cuddly teddy bear from his directorial debut “Ted,” to make a crack about a post-Oscar orgy at Jack Nicholson’s house. (MacFarlane already has indicated he’s one-and-done with Academy Awards hosting.) But it was Day-Lewis who came up with the kind of pop-culture riffing that’s MacFarlane’s specialty. In accepting his record third bestactor award from presenter Meryl Streep, he deadpanned that before they’d swapped roles, he originally was set to play Margaret Thatcher “and Meryl was Steven’s first choice for ‘Lincoln,’ and I’d like to see that version.” Besides best picture, “Argo” won for Chris Terrio’s adapted screenplay and for William Goldenberg’s film editing. Affleck famously (and strangely) wasn’t included in the best-director category for his thrilling and surprisingly funny depiction of a daring rescue during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis. But as a producer on the film alongside George Clooney and Grant Heslov, he got to take home

the top prize of the night. “I never thought I’d be back here, and I am because of so many of you in this academy,” said Affleck, who shared a screenplay Oscar with pal Matt Damon 15 years earlier for their breakout film “Good Will Hunting.” Among the wisdom he’s acquired since then: “You can’t hold grudges — it’s hard but you can’t hold grudges.” Lee, who previously won best director in 2006 for “Brokeback Mountain” (which also didn’t win best picture), was typically lowkey and self-deprecating in victory. His “Life of Pi” is a fable set in glorious 3-D, but Spielberg looked like the favorite for “Lincoln.” The film also won for its cinematography, original score and visual effects. “Thank you, movie god,” the Taiwanese director said on stage. Later, he thanked his agents and said: “I have to do that,” with a little shrug and a smile. “Les Miserables” also won for sound mixing and makeup and hairstyling. The other Oscar for “Django Unchained” came for Tarantino’s original screenplay. Asked about his international appeal backstage, Tarantino was enthusiastic as usual in saying: “I’m an American, and a filmmaker, but I make movies for the planet Earth.”

Legal pot poses growing dilemma

During a briefing with reporters at the Vatican last week, Piazzoni was asked about the campaign to keep Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony away from the voting because he covered up sexual abuse by priests. Piazzoni said while in the past some cardinals have been impeded either by illness or by interference from their governments, none has stayed away because of a stain on his own reputation. He noted that any decision would have to be approved by the full College of Cardinals, given that the main duty of a cardinal is to vote in a conclave. “The thing that characterizes a cardinal is to be an elector of the pope,” he told reporters. Winfield reported from Rome.

The Associated Press SPOKANE, Wash. — It may be called weed, but marijuana is legendarily hard to grow. Now that the drug has been made legal in Washington and Colorado, growers face a dilemma. State-sanctioned gardening coaches can help folks cultivate tomatoes or zucchini, but both states have instructed them not to show people the best way to grow marijuana. The situation is similar in more than a dozen additional states that allow people to grow the drug with medical permission. That’s leaving some would-be marijuana gardeners looking to the private sector for help raising the temperamental plant. “We can’t go there,” said Brian Clark, a spokesman for Washington State University in Pullman, which runs the state’s extension services for gardening and agriculture. “It violates federal law, and we are a federally funded organization.” The issue came up because people are starting to ask master gardeners for help in growing cannabis, Clark said. Master gardeners are volunteers who work through state university systems to provide horticultural tips in their communities.

Answers to Saturday’s questions: Folk singer Bob Dylan wrote a song about hardthrowing major league pitcher Jim “Catfish” Hunter, correctly predicting he was “gonna make the Hall of Fame.” During Hunter’s career, he threw a perfect game, won 21 more games in five consecutive seasons and earned five World Series rings. Hollywood legend Spencer Tracy set the unacceptable condition that he be allowed to kill Batman when he was offered the role of the Penguin in the 1966 Batman TV series. The role went to the less demanding Burgess Meredith. Today’s questions: Which small Caribbean resort island, known for its dazzling white sands, is named for its long, eel-like shape? Why are cashew nuts generally not sold raw or in their shell? Answers in Wednesday’s Herald.
