DELPHOS — Delphos City Council will see two separate pieces of legislation from the Utilities Committee on Monday. One ordinance gives an increase of 2 percent for 2 years in water rates. The second ordinance asks for a 5 percent increase in sewer rates for one year. The committee voted unanimously to leave the Consumer Price Index ordinance currently in place alone. The current CPI is 1.7 percent. Committee Chair Rick Hanser opened the meeting by saying water and sewer rates need to be raised so the accounts don’t go into the red or fall below what is needed for operations. “No one wants to do this but we can’t operate in the hole,” Hanser said. City Auditor Tom Jettinghoff presented several proposals Sgt. Josh Osting fields questions from the first-grade class at Landeck Elementary.

Councilman Kevin Osting questioned some of the increases and the resulting balances. “I know we can’t go in the red but we don’t need to have that much of a balance in these accounts, either,” Osting said. “Everyone is struggling and I can’t see us having that big of a balance when it’s hard for people to pay their bills.” Hanser asked if the accounts could be handled with separate legislation and found they could. “The sewer account is the one with the real problem so that is the one we need to be

Sgt. Osting visits Landeck pen pals
By Stacy Taff email@example.com LANDECK — At six feet, five inches tall, Sergeant Josh Osting of the United States Army towers over the average person and dwarfs the average elementary student. When he dropped by Landeck Elementary Tuesday afternoon to visit his niece, Noelle Prine, and her peers, he was asked a question or two concerning his lofty stature. “Are you taller than Mr. Ulm?” wondered one student, while another asked, “Are you taller than a zombie?” “I don’t know, it depends on the zombie,” Osting replied with a smile. Having spent the last eight months stationed in Afghanistan, Osting was more likely to encounter insurgents than zombies. While in Afghanistan, Osting kept in touch with Landeck students and made plans to visit after he came home on Feb. 14. A Landeck Elementary alum, Osting went on to graduate from Jefferson High School in 2007 and left for basic training two weeks later. “Basic training is 10 weeks long and then after that, whatever training you get depends on what job you choose,” Osting said. “I was on the bomb squad, so my training took about a year.” Osting shared with the students some of his daily experiences on the bomb squad, as well as the life of a soldier in Afghanistan. “A convoy is where we drive around doing presence patrol, looking for bad guys and IEDs, which stands for Improvised Explosive Device,” he said. “We have something called a mine roller that we attach to the front of our truck and if there are any explosives in the road up ahead, the roller will hopefully set it off before the truck gets to it. “We also have a robot we use, to go down and take apart IEDs, so no one gets hurt. We only dismantle a bomb by hand as a last resort. When we’re driving around and we see a random object in the road ahead, we’ll send the robot to investigate. We’ve had one of them blown up.” When soldiers are in a combat zone, the eruption of a firefight is always a possibility. “Firefights can last a while or they can be as short as someone jumping out and firing a couple shots at you and then running away,” Osting said. “If you’re under fire, the first thing you do is find cover, even if it’s just behind a rock.” While living in Afghanistan, Osting learned about the Afghan people.

“We were training the people there to do what we were doing because we’re trying to get out of there,” he said. “We want them to know what to do when we leave. A lot of the people there live in mud huts, basically like a larger version of your sand castles. The kids there are usually pretty excited to see us. They come out and watch us drive past and we throw them candy and things like that. It feels like a parade. “We don’t have to speak the language because we have interpreters we bring out with us; usually our Afghanistan counterparts. We say a few sentences and they’ll translate for us. We got to eat some of their food, too. All of their bread is flat and they eat a lot of rice and vegetables, too.” While in Afghanistan, Osting’s sleeping conditions ranged from a small room on base to a cot in an improvised shelter with dirt walls and a thin metal roof held up with 2x4’s. When they had downtime, Osting says they enjoyed normal activities like playing video games. “We played games like Black Ops and Call of Duty, sometimes Mario Cart,” he said. “Things like that.” Osting is the son of Dennis and Lois Osting of Delphos.
City works on pot holes
Ottoville raises sewer rate, gives $25K for fire station improvements
BY STEPHANIE GROVES firstname.lastname@example.org OTTOVILLE — A sewer rate increase, ongoing construction, improvement projects and upcoming park carnival events highlighted the Ottoville Village Council meeting Monday. Council approved on emergency measure an ordinance raising sewer rates 25 cents per 1,000 gallons. Villagers will see the increase on their bills in April. The measure will increase the village’s revenue by $8,000 per year. In old business, members of the park board spoke to council about the house at 287 Church Street, which is to be saved and used for storage purposes. Mayor Ron Miller explained the first known modification to make the space usable is to remove the asbestos shingles. Samples of the siding are currently being tested for the carcinogen. Another problem with the structure is a portion of the foundation is missing. To utilize it for storage or for any reason, that portion of the foundation would have to be replaced or the basement would have to be filled in. “The building cost us $4,800,” Miller explained. “It would cost us $2,700 to tear it (the siding) down.”

Park board representatives want to leave the first story intact and make modifications to the living space to accommodate storage and possibly an area for meetings. They would also keep the garage and pay for the re-siding of the house. The board also addressed the “Lawn Mower Race” event they would like to hold during the Park Carnival this summer. In the past, the Lawn Mower Race Association has sponsored the event and earned all the proceeds. Also, there were some control issues; attendees brought their own beverages in coolers to the events. This year, the members would like to earn the proceeds from entry fees into the event as well as optimize the revenues from sales at the beer tent. Board members have spoken with the Fort Jennings club, who have volunteered their time to help set up the races at Ottoville. Councilman Randy Altenburger asked the park board members about insuring the event and the safety procedures. “We need the certificate (copy of insurance coverage) that indicates the village is not liable,” Altenburger

(Continued from page 1A) more careful with,” he said. Jettinghoff agreed. “We don’t really know what is going on with the membranes and if we’ll need to replace every year but we need to be prepared,” he said. The committee examined the water account and the proposed increases and decided on the 2 percent increase for two years. Councilmen Josh Gillespie and Joe Martz suggested
explained. “There needs to be proper barriers and fencing in case of some incident or accident.” “Check with Fort Jennings and see how they run their program,” Miller requested. The Auglaize Street reconstruction project meeting with council, headed by Brian Goubeaux of Choice One Engineering out of Sidney, included specifications to rectify drainage problems in the immediate area of construction. Redirecting the run-off with outlets and getting the water back to the river or creating a catch basin to absorb the overages are options. The road itself will remain 26 feet wide and there will be no on street parking. Bidding on the project will begin this June and it is anticipated that work will begin in July and be completed in the fall. “Existing driveway aprons will be removed to the second joint,” Goubeaux detailed. “Reconstruction will be a uniform 8 foot long apron with 4 foot flares.” “Reconstructed curbs with smaller radiuses will have to be approved by the owners of the property,” Miller explained. With the upcoming new construction in mind, Fiscal Officer Jeanne Wannemacher reported some of the existing
manholes have sunk in and become uneven in the paved sections of the street. “When the road maintenance crew performs snow removal they hit the uneven manholes,” she reported. The board of Public Affairs has been researching the cost to repair the firehouse. The renovations include removal of old metal fascia walls and outdated electrical system, installation and painting of new metal fascia and the installation of new electrical fixtures, conduit and extra exterior outlets. At December’s meeting, council agreed to contribute $25,000 toward the project. Of the two bids obtained by the Public Affairs board, the most comprehensive bid from Alexander Bebout, Inc., encompasses all the expected work and the estimate is close to $35,000. The fire department would like to donate $20,000 to the project but at this time, much of their funds are tied up in costs associated with the Fireman’s Convention this summer. Councilmen Tony Langhals and Altenburger both agreed that the council will give them the $25,000 to get the new walls and electrical system implemented. “Let’s see where we’re at after the wiring and metal is done,” Miller suggested. “We’ll look at the painting later.”

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Bakir Hajdarevic didn’t have to study for the most important test in a class last fall. He just had to spit — a lot. The 19-year-old freshman at the University of Iowa took an honors seminar on personal genetics in which students had the option of sending saliva samples so a testing company could use DNA to unlock some of their most personal health and family secrets. The results would tell them how likely they were to get some forms of cancer, whether they were carriers for genetic diseases, where their ancestors came from, and a trove of other information. The class, taught at Iowa for the first time, is part of a growing movement in higher education to tackle the rapidly advancing field of personal genetics, which is revolutionizing medicine and raising difficult ethical and privacy questions. The classes are forcing students to decide whether it is better to be ignorant or informed about possible health problems — a decision more Americans will confront as the price of genetic testing plummets and it becomes more popular. Hajdarevic said he was eager to “find out about all the little mysteries” lurking in his DNA. Sure he was nervous that he might get bad news about cancer risks. But he said the curiosity to learn about himself — and whether he needed to take steps to improve his health — outweighed those concerns. And so, one day last fall, he found himself in his dorm room struggling to spit into a test tube that he would mail to 23andMe, the Mountain View, Calif., testing company. “It was like 10 minutes of spitting, literally,” he recalled, laughing. “I ran out of spit really quickly. I was spitting for like 15 seconds and then I’d run out of juice.”

Answers to Monday’s questions: The small Caribbean resort island of Anguilla, known for its dazzling white sands, is named for its long, eel-like shape. Eel in Italian and Latin is anguilla: in Spanish, it’s anguila; and in French, it’s anguille. In English, anguilliform means “resembling or shaped like an eel.” The shell of the cashew nut contains urushiol, the same painful skin irritant that’s in poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac. Because the raw nut isn’t safe to eat if it has come into contact with the shell, it is generally steamed and boiled at a high temperature to destroy the urushiol. Today’s questions: What is a hyena actually doing when it makes its signature laughing sound? What role did actress Eileen Ryan play in the 1986 film At Close Range, in which she appears with her actor sons, Sean Penn and Chris Penn? Answers in Thursday’s Herald. A couple was making their first doctors visit prior to the birth of their first child. After the exam, the doctor took a small stamp and stamped the wife’s stomach with indelible ink. The man and his wife were curious about what the stamp was for, so when they got home, the man took out his magnifying glass to try to see what is was. In very small letters, the stamp said, “When you can read this, come back and see me.”

House panel plans vote on Ohio Turnpike bond deal
Vantage celebrates renovated facility
BY ED GEBERT DHI Correspondent VAN WERT — With Vantage staff and students, dressed in red polo shirts, guiding visitors through the wide halls, the community took a good look at the results of a $35 million renovation and expansion on Monday. Vantage Career Center took time to celebrate the grand opening of the facility with an open house, showing off the new building and all its features. The evening began with the ceremony in the Student Commons area, featuring key participants in the project as well as honored guests. Following the ceremony, guests were invited to walk the halls and discover what had been built over the past months. And many people did just that. “It has been a fabulous turnout so far,” remarked Superintendent Staci Kaufman directly after the ceremony. “I really didn’t know that we’d have an audience for the ceremony. We wanted one, but this is better than I could have hoped. All told, we may have 1,5002,000 people in the building tonight for open house, as well as to celebrate the end of our construction project,” The cleanliness and organization marked a major distinction from the past 18 months or so. While the school seemed to run well despite ongoing construction work, there were inconveniences that most had to deal with at one time or another — like dust, noise, and moving classrooms. With that in the past, Kaufman said she is happy to have the work completed. “It feels great. I think we’re going to miss it a little bit… but not for too long! It’s going to be nice to get back to teaching and learning and what we do best. It’s so exciting to have this night finally come,” she related. At the ceremony, Kaufman, and Board President Lonnie Nedderman each had a chance to welcome the visitors and speak about their own experiences in the Vantage halls
Retired Ohio physician pleads to sex charges
COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio House panel is nearing a vote on Republican Gov. John Kasich’s proposal to raise around $1.5 billion for state highway projects through Ohio Turnpike bonds. Democrats on the House Finance Committee planned to offer amendments Wednesday ahead of a possible vote. They want to see in writing Kasich’s pledges to freeze tolls for trips of 30 miles or less and to spend 90 percent of deal proceeds in northern Ohio. Northern Ohio leaders, including U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, echo those concerns. The administration says it will deliver on Kasich’s promises, but placing precise spending targets in the law would limit flexibility. Responding to Ryan — a potential Kasich challenger next year — the governor’s spokesman said no one from Washington should advise Ohio on debt and budget issues.
Vantage students who participated in the renovation project at Vantage Career Center as part of the Jr. Builder program are recognized at Monday evening’s open house and dedication ceremony. (Times Bulletin/Lindsay McCoy) during the past year and a half. Plenty of thank yous were extended toward the general contractor Gilbane, the Ohio School Facilities Commission, Garmann/ Miller, and the staff and students of Vantage. Another big thank you went to the voters who passed a 1.05 mill levy in November of 2009. This project marked the first upgrade to the Vantage facility since it first opened to students in 1976. Over the past few months, the remaining parts of the old building were completely reworked while the new additions to the building were constructed. Labs were expanded, and traditional classrooms took on a new look with state-ofthe-art technology. Each of the six phases of the building project was completed on time, and the entire project was not only on time but was also slightly under budget. All parties involved admitted this was not always easy to accomplish. Architect Bruce Miller of Garmann/Miller Architects and Engineers was forthright in his assessment of the difficulty of this project. He said, “I told Staci [Kaufman] this was probably one of the most difficult designs we’ve ever had to complete. We put all new electrical in, all new HVAC, all new water lines, all new heating, and technology and fire alarms. And by doing that, as we went through the process of each phase, we had to keep the old building running while we were working on the new. So it was very complex, very complicated. Gilbane did a wonderful job coordiating with us throughout the process. It was really a team effort.” During his remarks, Chad Stevers of Gilbane introduced a group of high school students who had participated in the Jr. Builders program. These students sat in on planning meetings, did job shadowing, and eventually got a chance to do a job interview, giving them a chance to develop various skills they will need as they start to enter the work force. The project itself was funded at 71 percent by the Ohio School Facilities Commission, with the other 29 percent coming in local funds from residents living within the boundaries of the participating school districts. Kaufman noted that the project was only possible by the passage of the tax levy back in 2009. Once that passed, the plans could become more extensive. With the additional square footage and up-to-date equipment, many Vantage programs will be able to handle up to three times more students. More opportunities also have been created in adult education as well. Since Vantage is considered a big asset for economic development, the win is not just for the school and the students, but also the community.
Shooter sentenced in Ohio slaying of mom, daughter
COLUMBUS (AP) — A 74-year-old retired central Ohio physician could face five years in prison after pleading no contest to charges that he had sexual contact with a 15-yearold boy. The Columbus Dispatch reports that Dr. Samuel Bracken Jr. entered the plea Tuesday. He was charged after video of him having sex with the boy was discovered on the home-security system at his house in the Columbus suburb of Dublin. The retired obstetrician is scheduled to be sentenced April 10. In addition to a prison term, he’ll have to register as a sex offender every six months. Prosecutor Daniel Hawkins said the boy was the son of Bracken’s then-cleaning lady. Police said Bracken admitted that he had sex with the boy and forgot about the cameras.
WARREN, Ohio (AP) — The alleged shooter in the 2009 northeastern Ohio slayings of a mother and her teen daughter has pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 19 years in prison. Thirty-nine-year-old Melvin Turner pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of involuntary manslaughter and other charges in the fatal shooting of 28-yearold Wilneice Green and her 13-year-old daughter at their home near Youngstown. Prosecutors said they agreed to the plea bargain because they lacked physical evidence tying Turner to the killings. But they relied on the testimony of Turner’s four co-defendants, who have pleaded guilty to various crimes and face prison sentences of between 6 and 23 years.

“Reasoning with a child is fine, if you can reach the child’s reason without destroying your own.” — John Mason Brown, American essayist (1900-1969)
Bernanke continues low rates support
By MARTIN CRUTSINGER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Ben Bernanke sent a message Tuesday to Congress: The Federal Reserve’s low-interest-rate policies are giving crucial support to an economy still burdened by high unemployment. The Fed chairman acknowledged the risks of keeping rates low indefinitely. But he expressed confidence that such risks pose little threat now. Delivering the Fed’s semiannual monetary report to Congress, Bernanke sought to minimize concerns that the central bank’s easy-money policies might cause runaway inflation later or dangerous bubbles in assets like stocks. He sought to reassure sometimes-skeptical senators that the Fed is monitoring potential threats and can defuse them before they hurt the economy. Several Fed policymakers said at their most recent meeting that the Fed might have to scale back its bond purchases because of the risks. Those comments, contained in minutes released last week, fanned speculation that the Fed might soon allow long-term borrowing rates to rise. Stock prices fell sharply. But Bernanke gave no signal that the Fed might shift away from its low-interestrate policy. He said its aggressive program to buy $85 billion a month in Treasurys and mortgage bonds had kept borrowing costs low. And that, in turn, has helped strengthen sectors such as housing and autos, he said. On budget policy, Bernanke urged Congress to replace the automatic spending cuts due to start Friday with more gradual reductions in budget deficits in the short run. He noted that the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the automatic spending cuts that take effect Friday would shave growth by 0.6 percentage point this year. “Congress and the administration should consider replacing the sharp, frontloaded spending cuts required by the sequestration with policies that reduce the federal deficit more gradually in the near term but more substantially in the longer run,” Bernanke said. Economists said Bernanke made clear the Fed has no plans to scale back its pace of bond purchases. “That policy will continue to be supportive for growth, with no sign of imminent plans to scale down (the bond purchases) and certainly no plans to remove accommodation for a very long time,” said Jim O’Sullivan, chief

How to fix debt without hurting economy
By PAUL WISEMAN The Associated Press The thinking: The cuts would be so painful to both sides that they’d come to an agreement. The ax would fall equally on a wide range of domestic programs the Democrats support — from preschool programs for poor children to environmental protection — and on defense spending that Republicans support. It hasn’t worked. The across-the-board cuts look more likely each passing day. But economists say the automatic cuts are practically the worst way to attack the federal government’s deficits and debt. Here’s what they advise instead: — Don’t cut now The economy has yet to regain full strength more than 3 1/2 years after the Great Recession officially ended in June 2009. Growth has averaged 2.1 percent annually the past three years. That isn’t strong enough to generate healthy job growth. Unemployment is stuck at a high 7.9 percent. Cutbacks by state and local government have dragged down economic growth the past two years. Deep federal cuts now would worsen things. Macroeconomic Advisers predicts the automatic cuts would reduce economic growth this year to 2 percent from 2.6 percent, wipe out 700,000 jobs and keep unemployment at 7.4 percent or higher through 2014 “We’re right on the edge of what the economy can digest” in spending cuts, Zandi says. Only two of 31 economists surveyed last week by the Associated Press called for significant spending cuts now. The rest wanted to see deep cuts delayed. Europe’s experience shows that hasty budget cuts can be counterproductive when economies are weak. Despite slashing spending and raising taxes, Britain, Spain, Portugal and Italy have all seen their debt burdens rise. Their economies shrank because of the painful austerity measures, which meant their debts grew as a percentage of gross domestic product, or GDP, the broadest measure of economic activity. The best medicine for swollen federal debts, experts of all political persuasions agree, is stronger economic growth. A healthy economy means more people are working, earning money and paying taxes; and fewer are collecting federal benefits such as unemployment checks and food stamps. Already, a slowly improving economy has helped whittle the United States’ federal deficit. The deficit peaked at $1.4 trillion at the depths of the Great Recession in 2009 and has been falling ever since. The Congressional Budget Office says it will fall to $845 billion this year if the automatic cuts take effect. — Reform the tax code The U.S. tax system is riddled with tax breaks that benefit everyone from homeowners
U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics. Addressing concerns that the bond purchases, which have pushed the Fed’s balance sheet to a record high above $3 trillion, could trigger high inflation, Bernanke said: “Inflation is currently subdued and inflation expectations appear well-anchored. We do not see the potential costs of the increased risk-taking in some financial markets as outweighing the benefits of promoting a stronger economic recovery and more-rapid job creation.” He said that over the past six months, the economy has grown moderately but unevenly. Bernanke said the pause in growth seen in the final three months of 2012 “does not appear to be a stalling-out of the recovery.” He said growth appears to have picked up in the past two months.

Seemingly overnight, she transformed herself from librarian to liberator, becoming a voice for oppressed women — from advocating for Burma’s Aung San Suu Kyi, the democratic leader then under house arrest, to spearheading a women’s health movement across the Middle East. Likewise, it appears that Michelle Obama has begun to break out. Though she long ago established herself as a health-and-fitness mom in chief, she had until recently been careful to stay well within the lines of traditional first lady. Obviously accomplished in her own right, she spent the past four years fashioning an image of good wife and mother to counter early impressions of her as politically ambitious and, to certain of her critics, angry. Whatever she was then, she is something else now. In her second term, Michelle Obama has come out with, well, a bang! She isn’t just breaking the mold; she’s shattering the good china. The Madonna of first ladies, she is emerging as an iconoclastic, self-reinventing woman who clearly doesn’t mind shaking the firmament. It seems clear that no one, including the president, tells the first lady what to do. “She always looks good” was Barack Obama’s wise response when asked how he liked his wife’s new bangs. Studies have confirmed what all successfully married men know: The correct answer to any question is “Yes, dear.”
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
WASHINGTON — An ax is scheduled to hit the federal budget Friday: Unless the White House and Congress reach a budget deal by then, automatic cuts will carve $85 billion out of the budget through Sept. 30 and $1.2 trillion over the next decade. The cuts in defense spending, unemployment benefits and other programs could slow an already struggling economy. And they would leave unaddressed the biggest longterm threats to the government’s finances — rising bills for Medicare and Social Security. Economists say there’s a better way. Shrinking the federal debt doesn’t have to mean either hurting the economy now or ignoring the spending burdens of the future. Economists widely agree that policymakers should delay deep cuts such as the ones slated to take effect Friday until the economy has strengthened. But they say lawmakers should come up with a realistic long-term plan to fix the debt as soon as possible. The plan would raise revenue and promote economic efficiency by closing tax loopholes, and it would focus cuts on the health care spending that will rise relentlessly as the vast baby boom generation retires. In the short term, though, what most worries economists is the threat of deep cuts this year. The cutting set to start Friday is “haphazard, and cuts good programs and bad. It’s not good budgeting practice,” says Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics. When a government spends more than it collects in taxes in a year, it runs an annual deficit. Every annual deficit adds to the accumulated federal debt. For the United States, both numbers look bad. Annual deficits have exceeded $1 trillion the past four years. The federal debt has reached $11.7 trillion, not including money that federal agencies have borrowed from each other, including from the Social Security trust fund. If nothing is done about the longterm budgetary burdens, the debt will reach $19.9 trillion by 2023, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Efforts to close the budget gap have been stymied by Republicans’ refusal to accept new tax increases and Democrats’ insistence that any spending cuts be matched by tax increases. Democrats are also reluctant to shrink spending on popular entitlement programs such as Medicare and Social Security. In August 2011, President Barack Obama and congressional Republicans agreed to a setup that was supposed to force a compromise. If they couldn’t reach a deal by Jan. 1, 2013 — a deadline later extended to March 1 — automatic spending cuts would kick in.
Michelle Obama’s wings
T h e b a n g s KATHLEEN PARKER were a clue that Michelle was evacuating the cocoon. Analyzing her bangs may seem a silly pastime — but only if you know nothing about women. When a woman changes her hair — especially as dramatically as the first lady did — something is up. Those aren’t bangs covering Michelle Obama’s eyebrows. Those are butterfly wings. Observe. The first lady completely changed her appearance on the eve of her husband’s second inauguration. Now why would she do that? She jokingly has said that her bangs were her midlife crisis. Cute answer, but it’s clearly more than that. Hair is the frame we choose for the portrait we project to the world. Hair conveys messages we don’t even consciously recognize. Who knew that Michelle Obama harbored an inner Gidget? Cute, fun-loving, perky were not adjectives that sprang to mind when Michelle became a household word four years ago. That was then. Michelle Obama obviously has decided to have some fun. Thus, recently, she joined Jimmy Fallon in a viral pas de deux titled, “The Evolution of Mom Dancing.” Sunday night she crashed the biggest party on television — the Academy Awards — to announce the best picture winner. Appearing remotely on a gargantuan screen like a holographic Princess Leia, she was a glimmering, spaghetti-strapped goddess beaming in to bestow the grand prize
to oil and gas companies. These tax breaks cost the Treasury $1.3 trillion last year, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. Economists say the loopholes warp the economy by diverting investment away from projects that make economic sense and into those that are subsidized by tax breaks. Economists and budget analysts say the government could raise revenue and improve economic efficiency by ending some of the tax breaks. Among those calling for ending or scaling back most tax breaks are the Bipartisan Policy Center and former Republican Sen. Alan Simpson and former Clinton administration official Erskine Bowles, co-chairmen of a presidential commission assigned to find ways to reduce the federal debt. Of course, getting lawmakers to end the tax breaks won’t be easy. The loopholes are popular. And Congressional Republicans are currently refusing any budget deal that raises tax revenue by closing loopholes. — Target entitlement programs The most serious threat to the federal government’s finances is America’s aging population. As baby boomers have begun to shuffle into retirement, they are tapping Medicare health care benefits and collecting Social Security. The CBO sees federal deficits falling through 2015 as the economy improves and the automatic budget cuts reduce spending. But then the deficits start rising again inexorably because of higher health care spending and rising interest payments on the federal debt. The debt will near $20 billion by 2030 if nothing is done, according to the CBO. Many Democrats have resisted efforts to slow the growth of Medicare and Social Security. Economists say Democrats will have to accept the reality that the government can’t keep spending at its current pace indefinitely. America spent more than $8,200 per person on health care in 2010. That’s the most of any country and more than 50 percent higher than No. 2 Norway’s $5,388 per person. The automatic spending cuts largely leave health care and Social Security spending alone. Instead, they zero in on the rest of the federal budget — so-called discretionary programs — including defense spending. But the 2011 budget agreement already took an ax to discretionary programs. The White House says they are already scheduled to fall to 5.7 percent of U.S. GDP by 2017 — the lowest level in budget records dating back to 1962. Discretionary spending accounted for nearly 37 percent of the $3.8 trillion the federal government spent last year; so-called mandatory programs, including Social Security and Medicare, accounted for 61 percent.
Point of View
— Herself — on the adoring audience that helped put her husband in office. Reactions have been mixed from the moment Jack Nicholson introduced her: Should she have done it? Is it too frivolous in these dire times for the first lady, bedecked in sequined splendor, to be participating in such self-congratulatory frivolity? Too much exposure? Too much … too much? As usual, the responses tend to break down along party lines. We have such conflicting feelings about first wives in an era when women do it all, including, eventually, becoming president. We want our first lady to be first a lady — a delicate balance between enjoying one’s attractiveness without being too sexy. Michelle’s sleeveless toned arms have kept us riveted for four years. We want our first ladies to be intelligent but not aggressively so. Supportive but not fawning. Politic but not political. We mostly want them to not embarrass us — and this will be the same for the first husband when he arrives. To most of the country, Michelle has passed muster thus far. Her youthful health and fitness are inspiring — and she can grab and hold an audience as few others. She and the camera adore each other, though some of us miss her Jackie Kennedy period — the black Armani sheath with a double strand of pearls, hair brushed back to reveal her best feature — an arched, intelligent brow line. Why cover it up? The answer may be as simple as sometimes a first lady just wants to have fun. For certain, Michelle Obama is the star of her own movie.

Carbon monoxide alarm alerts family to problem
BY LOVINA EICHER We are having some snowy days this week although there is not much of an accumulation. We have had quite a day already. Joe left for work around 3:30 a.m. I had turned off the light and was ready to go back to bed until 5 a.m. I heard an alarm go off in the basement so I went to go out and check it out and it was a carbon monoxide alarm. I could smell soot so I checked our coal stove but it looked OK. I figured that it might be the gas water heater and shut it off. I get worried more since the fire we had last year and decided to wake all 8 children. I called 911 to ask what I should do. They said to get everyone out of the house and they would send someone to take a look. Everyone was still sleepy and it was difficult to find clothes and coats by flashlight. I didn’t want to turn on our gaslights just to be safe. Remembering the fire we had everyone was shook up a little more. It was cold and around 20 degrees outside so I told the children to go inside the tool shed where it would be warmer. It ended up that the whole fire department showed up. They checked the carbon count and it was 32 close by the water heater. It had probably aired out since I had shut it off. Elizabeth didn’t go back to sleep since she leaves for work around 5:15 a.m. I think everyone will be ready for bed early tonight. We have someone here now checking out the water heater. It sounds like we could be getting some downdrafts, too. They are adding a fresh air vent to prevent the build up of carbon monoxide. With so many gas appliances running plus the coal stove, we need more ventilation. Our house is so air tight and during the winter months when we don’t have windows to air it out it builds up faster. They tested our propane gas lights and they throw off a little, too. We use them longer during the winter months, also. We hope this will take care of any more problems. I am glad we had the carbon monoxide detector down there. We received word that Joe’s great Uncle Amos died. We regret that we didn’t find out in time to attend his funeral which was yesterday. Our sympathy goes to the family. The children enjoyed their two-day mid-winter break. It went way too fast. Friday evening and Saturday we helped Jacob butcher hogs. They have lots of meat now. We made pon hoss out of 12 gallons of juice from the pork bones. We have had quite a few meals of it already. Everyone in our family likes it. We have also been using the fresh sausage Jacob sent home with us. We use it in breakfast burritos, casseroles, gravy, and fry it for sandwiches. We have two hogs on order but they are not quite big enough to butcher. We are thinking they should be ready

Charity stripe propels Big Green into sectional final
By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald email@example.com Van Wert - Tuesday night started the road to Columbus as tournament play began for the area boys basketball teams. At the Cougars’ Den in Van Wert, the Perry Commodores — under the direction of head coach Matt Tabler — faced off with the Ottoville Big Green of head coach Todd Turnwald in Division IV action. The game saw the Commodores fight back from an early deficit to take the lead at halftime; however, the second half was all Big Green as they outscored the Commodores 24-15 and went 9-11 from the charity stripe to come away with the sectional win, 41-35. The Big Green started the contest off strong with 13 points in the first quarter behind sophomore Brandt Landin’s six points. The Commodores rallied back from an early deficit in the quarter to narrow their deficit four points at the quarter break, 13-9. The second quarter was all Commodores as they outscored the Big Green 11-4. The Commodores used some excellent outside shooting from sophomore Jared Poling to go along with the inside-outside combination of juniors Bruce Hodges and Raheem Johnson to grab and extend their lead to 20-17 going into halftime. The Commodores held the Big Green scoreless until the 1:41 mark when junior Luke Schimmoeller connected on two foul shots for his team. The Big Green had no field goals in the quarter and got all four of their points in the span via the charity stripe. Big Green head coach Todd Turnwald knew he had his work cut out for him heading into the locker room to get his squad back on track: “I’m really proud of the kids. We got up early in the first, then got down in the second but we’ve had a great last few days in trying to work on our preparation. The last few days we’ve had some guest speakers come in and tell our guys to compete and BELIEVE in themselves. We’ve been so close all year and we needed to stop hoping that we can win and start believing that we can win.” The message worked in the second half as the Big Green stormed back in the third quarter and at the 3:10 mark, captured the lead back from the Commodores 26-25. The Big Green forced the Commodores out of their game by forcing five turnovers during the third peri-
od. Shots were not falling, team fouls started to rise and the composure of the young Commodores started to show as the lead slipped away from them. The Big Green led 29-28 heading into the final period of play. The Commodores refused to give up and continued to ride the hot shooting of Poling to stay close but the game truly ended up being won by the Big Green from the charity stripe. The Big Green connected on 15-18 from the charity stripe, compared to the Commodores going 0-5 from the line. Schimmoeller was 8-8 (4-4 in the fourth quarter) for the Big Green, who used that foul line advantage to move on in tournament play with the 6-point win. The Commodores (7-16) were led in scoring by Poling with a game-high 15 points, followed by Hodges with seven points. The Commodores were 15-of-38 from the field for 39 percent; 0-of-5 from the stripe; hauled in 17 rebounds; and committed 10 (5 in the third quarter) turnovers. Turnwald was quick to praise the Commodores’ effort on the evening: “Perry has two outstanding kids. Those kids (Poling and Hodges) can flat out play! Poling can really shoot the ball and Hodges can just get to the rim about whenever he wants. Matt does a great job with those kids year in and year out.” For the victorious Big Green, they were led by Landin and Ryan Honigford with 10 points apiece. From the field, the Big Green shot 34 percent (11-32) and were an excellent 83 percent (1518) from the foul line. They hauled in 19 rebounds and committed 10 turnovers. The Big Green (9-14) will continue on into the sectional final Friday night when they take on the Crestview Knights for a 6:15 p.m. start at Van Wert High School. Coach Turnwald is excited to continue on in tournament play: “Crestview is a very good basketball team. They’re very well-coached but we really feel we can play with anybody and now we’re believing we can beat anybody - so we’re really looking forward to the challenge facing us Friday night.”

Strong 4th quarter pushes Wildcats to tourney win
By JIM METCALFE
WAPAKONETA — Jefferson wanted to have a high tempo in Tuesday’s sectional opener against Allen East, while the Mustangs wanted to slow it down and take advantage of their size. The Wildcats got the better of the deal, outscoring the Mustangs 29-11 in the final period to grab an 82-69 victory in Division III action at Wapakoneta. “We wanted to get into a quick pace. We felt that we had better athletes at several positions and didn’t want to let them force a grind-it-out game; that’s what they wanted,” Jefferson coach Marc Smith noted. “We got off to a good start with some pressure defense but we couldn’t do it the whole game. That was the key later in the third period and at the start of the fourth; we made some shots, got into our pressure and it seemed in 30 seconds, went from six down to leading.” The Mustangs (3-18) held a 58-53 lead at the end of three periods and won the first part of the fourth period 6-5 to lead 64-58. The Wildcats (5-17) got a putback by sophomore Ross Thompson (doubledouble with a game-high 26 points and 14 boards) at 5:56 and Smith called time. The Wildcats then slapped on their trapping full-court pressure that forced four quick turnovers in the next five Mustang possessions (17 for the game) that resulted in seven points and a 67-64 edge — taking the lead for good on a free toss by senior Zach Ricker at 5:28. The Wildcats continued that trend with their defense doing the damage, building up a 74-64 spread on two singles by Ricker at 2:56. The closest the Mustangs could get the rest of the way was eight as the Red and White canned 10-of-13 free throws in the final period — all in the final 5:28 — to seal the victory. The Wildcats used an aggressive approach offensively and canned 28-of-37 free throws (75.7%) versus 9-of-15 for Allen East (60%), fouling
Ross Thompson’s shot evades the block attempt of Allen East’s Logan Rex and tied the score at 64 early in the fourth Tuesday night at Wapakoneta.

There were two ties and five lead changes, with the Wildcats leading 41-36 on a free throw by senior Seth Wollenhaupt before Allen East’s Marcos Quintero was fouled shooting a last-gasp trey and hit two of the resultant singles with .6 on the clock for a 41-38 halftime lead in favor of Jefferson.

Andre Hollins added 16 points for the Gophers (199, 7-8 Big Ten), who outrebounded Cody Zeller and the Hoosiers 44-30 and solidified their slipping NCAA tournament case. Zeller was held to nine points with four turnovers for the Hoosiers (24-4, 12-3), who have held the No. 1 ranking for 10 of the 17 polls this season, including the last four. Victor Oladipo scored 16 points and Jordan Hulls had 14 of his 17 before halftime.

The Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. — The attorney for three NASCAR fans injured last weekend during a race the day before the Daytona 500 says they are exploring a possible lawsuit but some experts say they could face tough obstacles in winning damages. Matt Morgan, the Orlandobased lawyer for the fans, said at a news conference than any suit would focus on the safety fence used along the track at Daytona International Speedway. He said he hopes to reach a settlement with NASCAR to avoid a lawsuit. More than 30 people were injured last Saturday after a horrific wreck in a second-tier NASCAR series race sent chunks of debris, including a heavy tire,
into the stands. Morgan declined to provide the identities of his clients but added two of them were seated directly in front of the crash and sustained injuries ranging from a fractured fibula to abdominal swelling. All have been released from the hospital. NEW YORK — With Danica Patrick starting from the pole, the Daytona 500’s television ratings were much higher than last year’s. Sunday afternoon’s race earned a 9.9 rating and 22 share on Fox, the network announced. That’s up 24 percent from 2012, when rain pushed the event to a Monday night. It was the highest rating since 2008. Jimmie Johnson won the race while Patrick was eighth, the best

himself to a homicide charge by shooting into a closed door without knowing who was behind it. Particularly jarring for firearms instructors and legal experts is that Pistorius testified that he shot at a closed toilet door, fearing but not knowing for certain that a nighttime intruder was on the other side. Instead of an intruder, Pistorius’ girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was in the toilet cubicle. Struck by three of four shots that Pistorius fired from a 9-mm pistol, she died within minutes. Prosecutors charged Pistorius with premeditated murder, saying the shooting followed an argument between the two. Pistorius added it was an accident. JOHANNESBURG — Oscar Pistorius planned a personal memorial service on for Reeva Steenkamp, the 29-year-old model he shot at his home on Valentine’s Day. The evening service would be at the Pretoria home of his uncle Arnold, where the Olympic athlete has been staying since he was released on bail awaiting trial on a premeditated murder charge. Pistorius’ public relations firm said he had requested the service “as he remains in deep mourning for the loss of his partner Reeva,” whom he says he shot by accident assuming an intruder had entered his home on Feb. 14. Exactly a week ago, a memorial service was held for Steenkamp in the southern coast city of Port Elizabeth, where her body was cremated following a private service. COLLEGE BASKETBALL DALLAS — The Big 12 says officiating errors were made at the end of regulation before No. 6 Kansas outlasted Iowa State in overtime on Monday night. The league said that “appropriate measures will be taken” against the two officials involved, including an adjustment of “the number of future assignments.” The Big 12 did not identify the officials or the plays in question. Kansas’s Elijah Johnson drove into the lane and got tangled up with Iowa State’s Georges Niang with less than 10 seconds left. No foul was called and Niang was then whistled for fouling Johnson on the floor. Johnson sank two free throws to force OT with 4.9 seconds left. PISCATAWAY, N.J. — C. Vivian Stringer fought back tears as her Rutgers women’s basketball players celebrated their coach’s entrance to the exclusive 900 win club. The fifth time was the charm for Stringer, who became the fourth women’s college basketball coach to reach 900 wins as Rutgers cruised past South Florida 68-56 Tuesday night. Stringer, a Hall-of-Famer in her 42nd season as head coach, reached the milestone thanks to Erica Wheeler, who scored 24 points to help the Scarlet Knights (15-12, 6-8 Big East) snap a 4-game losing streak. GOLF PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy faced off Sunday in match play, just like so many golf fans wanted to see. Only hardly anyone saw them. And it didn’t even count. After both were eliminated in the first round of the Match Play Championship, No. 1 and No. 2 in the world played two rounds Sunday morning at The Medalist. “We thought we’d play our own Match Play final,” McIlroy said Tuesday at the Honda Classic. McIlroy added Woods won

West also was called for a technical foul, along with the Warriors’ David Lee, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, for the altercation that began with 6:10 remaining in the game. It began when Lee and Hibbert exchanged shoves under the basket after a missed shot. Curry tried to push Hibbert
away and was shoved to the court as the fight went from the key to the baseline. George Hill had 23 points and seven assists and Paul George had 21 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers (36-21).

Keith Bogans added 12 points for Brooklyn, hitting all four of his shots, including three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, when New Orleans nearly erased a deficit that had been as large as 22 points in the second quarter. Greivis Vasquez scored 20 and Robin Lopez 14 for New Orleans. CAVALIERS 101, BULLS 98 CHICAGO — Dion Waiters scored 25 points to help make up for the absence of Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers snapped an 11-game losing streak against the Chicago Bulls with a 101-98 victory on Tuesday night. While Irving rested a sore right knee in street clothes on the sideline, Waiters converted a fadeaway jumper and a layup before Tyler Zeller drove along the baseline for a layup that helped Cleveland open an 87-78 lead with 7:33 left in the game. The Bulls were down two when they got the ball back with 37 seconds left but Luol Deng missed a long jumper. Shaun Livingston, starting in place of Irving, finished with 15 points as improving Cleveland held on for its third win in the last four game.

Information submitted LIMA — St. Rita’s Professional Services announced that its six family medicine practices are the first in the West Central Ohio Region to be awarded Recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)- PatientCentered Medical Home (PCMH) Program. The recognized practices include: Martz and Martin Family Practice- Lima, Family Medicine Associates- Lima, Primary Care AssociatesLima, Spencerville Physicians, Klass Family Medicine-Glandorf, and Family and Sports MedicineOttawa. St. Rita’s Professional Services President, Herbert A. Schumm, MD, states that achieving this recognition demonstrates excellence in a variety of the many components required to practice evidence based medicine. “As the region’s leader, St. Rita’s is leading new and transformational methods to help patients access their doctor and for doctors to manage their patient’s care. We’re very proud of our practices and staff for being the first in West Central Ohio to be awarded PCMH Recognition,” Dr. Schumm said. The Patient-Centered Medical Home program reflects the input of the American College of Physicians (ACP), American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and others to identify and recognize practices that function as a patientcentered medical home. PCMH measures certain aspects of care including: access and communication; patient tracking and registry functions; care management; patient self-management support; electronic prescribing; test tracking; referral tracking; performance reporting and improvement; and advanced electronic communications. “The NCQA PatientCentered Medical Home is a model of 21st century primary care that combines access, teamwork and technology to deliver quality care and improve health,” NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane said. “NCQA’s PCMH Recognition shows that the St. Rita’s Professional Services family practices have tools, systems and resources to provide their patients with the right care at the right time.” PCMH focuses on strengthening the relationship between the patient and the physician by complimenting short-term episodic care with long-term relationships, while still providing typical family medicine services. With the medical home model, patients are active participants in their care and the primary care physician serves as the “home”, or the office where patients go for the majority of their medical needs. The medical home model focuses on a team approach. Primary care physicians, specialists and the patient all communicate and work towards the same health care goal, through patient counseling, discussion of lifestyle changes, and the management of chronic conditions. This model is cost-effective and results in less expensive healthcare for patients. advisor with more than 27 years of experience, Smith D E L P H O S will continue to help — JoAn M. clients plan for their Smith has joined financial goals for a Comprehensive lifetime – through a Wealth Partners, personal long-term a private wealth financial planning advisory pracrelationship.

in the state where your son lives. Under no circumstances should he agree to pay anything until all claims are reasonably substantiated IN WRITING. DEAR BRUCE: Recently my wife and I answered a mailer to meet for “lunch” with a financial planner. We thought, “Hey, what the heck, nothing better to do.” This guy advised us to take out a reverse mortgage on our house, which is paid for. He then said we should use those funds to buy a life insurance policy on my wife for $275,000, which would then go to our son as the beneficiary when she passes away. The rest of the money (our house is worth approximately $500,000) could then be invested. I’m not sure why we should really do this, as our income is fine and we live comfortably. What do you think? -- Reader, via email DEAR READER: Why in the world would you pay the rather high interest rate and fees that come with a reverse mortgage to produce a life insurance policy? From what you’ve told me, the only guy who benefits is the insurance salesman who is posing as a financial planner -- and selling a rather substantial life insurance policy. Forget the reverse mortgage and continue doing what you’ve been doing. It seems to be working for you, so don’t change it. DEAR BRUCE: I finally relented and decided it was time to get my will drawn up. My property is all in my daughter’s name. My question is, since it’s in her name, will it have to go through probate when the time comes? --Reader, via email DEAR READER: Congratulations on having your will done with an attorney. So many people want to get it over with quickly and do it online. If the property is all in your daughter’s name as you described, there is no reason the will would be filed for probate. It would be filed but not probated, since there are no assets remaining in your name. In the event that you’ve overlooked assets, the will is

World’s postal services struggle with lower demand
By NICK PERRY The Associated Press OTAKI, New Zealand— Sandra Vidulich is so excited about the leather boots she ordered through Amazon that she rips open the box in front of the postman and tries them on. “I looove them,” she declares, as the driveway at her tree-lined home in rural New Zealand briefly becomes a catwalk. “They’re cool.” For now, a boom in Internet shopping is helping keep alive moribund postal services across the developed world. But the core of their business — letters — is declining precipitously, and data from many countries indicate that parcels alone won’t be enough to save them. The once-proud postal services that helped build modern society are scaling back operations, risking further declines. The United Kingdom is preparing to wash its hands of mail deliveries entirely by selling the Royal Mail, which traces its roots back nearly 500 years to the reign of King Henry VIII. The U.S. Postal Service sparked uproar this month when it announced plans to stop delivering letters on Saturdays. New Zealand is considering more drastic cuts: three days of deliveries per week instead of six. It’s only in the past few years that postal services have truly felt the pinch of the Internet. Revenues at the USPS, which delivers about 40 percent of the world’s mail, peaked in 2007 at $75 billion. But the decline since then has been rapid. USPS revenue in 2012 fell to $65 billion, and its losses were $15.9 billion. It handled 160 billion pieces of mail that year, down from 212 billion in 2007. And it had slashed its workforce by 156,000, or 23 percent. Elsewhere, the news is just as grim. La Poste in France estimates that by 2015, it will be delivering 30 percent fewer letters than it did in 2008. Japan last year delivered 13 percent fewer letters than it did four years earlier. In Denmark, the postal service said letter volumes dropped 12 percent in a single year. The Universal Postal Union, which reports to the United Nations, estimates that letter volumes worldwide dropped by nearly 4 percent in 2011 and at an even faster clip in developed nations. Developed countries closed 5 percent of their post offices in 2011 alone. And while Internet shopping continues to grow, postal services that once profited from their monopoly on letters find themselves competing for parcels against private companies like FedEx. U.S. Postmaster General Patrick Donaho said he doesn’t believe the service can ever regain the revenue from packages it has lost from letters. He said axing Saturday mail deliveries, while keeping six-day-aweek package deliveries, will save the service about $2
DEAR BRUCE: My 45-year-old son keeps getting phone calls about a debt. He has no idea what it is for, and he has asked repeatedly for proof. As of yet, the callers have not come forth with any documentation for this $1,000 debt, which they claim goes back four years. I would think there is a statute of limitations on a bill that no one has tried to collect in that time. What can my son do to get them to quit calling? -- Reader, via email DEAR READER: You should understand that the callers likely represent a company that bought the obligation for a few pennies on the dollar. The company will do whatever it can to collect and make a profit on that transaction. The first thing to do is to find out what the statutory limitations are, if any,

there to cover that eventuality. You’ve done well! DEAR BRUCE: Several years ago, I was billed for an item I did not order or receive. It was an error by the company; the item was charged by another family member. The company corrected its error and acknowledged that there was no debt after a lot of aggravation and phone calls. Now, three years later, I have received a letter from a collection agency demanding payment. I have tried to contact the company and the bank it is using for its credit card, and they won’t respond to any of my calls or emails. In the meantime, the collection agency is hounding me. I have tried everything I can think of and don’t know what else to do. -- S.R., via email DEAR S.R.: This is a case where telephones and emails are largely a waste of time. I would write one -- and only one -- letter in which you briefly describe the circumstances and state that you have no intention of meeting this alleged obligation. Send the letter to the collection agency by certified mail, return receipt requested. This will give you absolute proof that your letter was delivered. Have no further contact with the agency until it gives you definitive written information about its alleged claim. By and large, I think the agency will look at the letter, and that will be the end of that. Obviously, you are going to keep indefinitely the receipt and any information you have in your files about the alleged obligation.

billion a year. Donahoe said he thinks ending Saturday letter deliveries will keep the USPS a solid proposition for years to come. “People still go to their mailbox every day and they wait for their mail to come,” he said. “It’s part of American life.” And it has been since the beginning. The postal service’s role was defined in the Constitution, and Benjamin Franklin was the first postmaster general. The short-lived Pony Express achieved an enduring place in American folklore. Even the modern system of highways and airline travel grew from pioneering routes developed by the postal service. “It’s easy to forget how central this institution was to commerce, public life, social affairs,” said Richard John, a Columbia University professor who has written a book on the postal service. “It was once very, very important. Of course, that was then and this is now.”

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2013 The aspects indicate that greater stabilization in your financial affairs will be taking place in the year ahead. Chances are if it hasn’t already started, you’ll soon be entering a growth pattern that will prove very interesting. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Even though any rewards you reap will be due more to the efforts of others than your own, your prospects look exceptionally good. Later, you’ll find a way to balance the account. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Do your best to keep all of your involvements in good, proper balance. Don’t attempt to take on more than you can manage, but by the same token, don’t idle your time away, either. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- When working on something you deem to be a labor of love, positive results are inevitable. Without question, the secret to your success is enjoying what you are doing. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Seek out activities devoid of competition that bring you together with friends whose company you enjoy. You need to relax, not vie with rivals. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -This could a particularly good time to invite friends over to your place for a little tete-a-tete. Most of the time, these impromptu get-togethers turn out great. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You’re likely to be exceptionally competent with projects that are more mental than physical in nature. You won’t find a better day to rest your muscle and give your brain a workout. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Material increases are indicated if you operate along traditional lines. However, the picture could suddenly change if out of the blue, you decide to take a risk on something. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Although you have excellent leadership qualities, they will remain dormant unless there is something specific that you decide to do. Whatever your aim, it will require tact and grace. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You could find yourself involved in something that affects others more than you. Rather than get deeply drawn in, keep a safe and respectful distance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You have a wonderful faculty of being able to enjoy yourself regardless of the hand that is dealt you. You’ll capitalize on this gift in two separate situations. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even though you might not be aware of it, you are apt to be the center of attention in at least one gathering. It’ll be your convivial conduct that enhances these conditions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -One of your best assets is being able to make friends with people from all walks of life. This wonderful quality will be in good working order -- use it to your advantage.
