Middle school ODE ‘School of Promise’
BY NANCY SPENCER firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — When the Ohio Department of Education officially released its school Report Cards last week, Jefferson Middle School had an addendum attached: “School of Promise.” According to the ODE, the School of Promise program was started in 2003 to help close the math and reading achievement gap for students who represent a range of socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. “Being named a School of Promise is an honor,” Jefferson Middle School Principal Terry Moreo said. “This award is bigger than one building. It represents the quality of instruction being taught by every teacher in our district.” Getting everyone on the same page is a lot of work. “We have bi-monthly meetings with teachers to align lessons with state curriculum guidelines to apply to teaching,” Moreo said. “Each course of lessons is mapped out monthly.” Finding the students who need the extra help to keep up with their peers is key. “We do six individual short-cycle assessments with each student. Their success is charted and instruction is adjusted to them,” Moreo said. “Our teachers realize that to make educational progress requires change. Daily our teachers making practice of this change.” The school will receive a banner noting the designation later this month.

They knew that she would make the best possible choices and be responsible for her actions. “She is in a comfort zone,” Karl rationalized. “She is saving money on daily living expenses and babysitting. Financially, she knows she can’t make it on her own at this time.” There have been times when Theresa has tried helping Shelly by purchasing some daily necessities like diapers but the assistance was refused. The baby and his care was her responsibility and she would take care of it herself. The emotional bond between Karl, Theresa and their daughter has not changed since learning of and living through the life-changing event. A Pew Survey released in 2012 found that the effect is more positive than negative. Overall, 34 percent of adults ages 18-34 say that living with their parents at this stage of life has been good for the relationship. Only 18 percent say the living arrangement has been bad for their relationship with their parents; 47 percent say it hasn’t made any difference. For the most part, Shelly likes living at home but feels a lot of frustration with all the noise and commotion the family makes. Through the week when the family is scurrying about
DELPHOS — Young adults living at home with parents may be an economic necessity but what is the effect on the relationship between them and their parents? For our multi-generational family — parents Karl and Theresa; daughters Shelly and Maria; son, Ethan; and grandson Alex — the dynamics are ever evolving. All things considered, Karl and Theresa feel most of the dynamics are manageable; however, there are a few unresolved issues. When it comes to Shelly’s parental role and responsibilities, there are a few shortcomings that have been addressed many times. The friction LLA hosting sign-ups for revolves around Shelly’s aversion for doing the baby’s laundry and cleaning baseball, softball The Delphos Little League and picking up after herself and her son.

getting out the door and starting their day, Shelly is just walking in the door after working a third shift. At 7:20 a.m., she is ready to crawl into bed and go to sleep. On the weekend, when everyone is home and she has worked the night before, it is typically very loud in the house and rest is at a premium. Shelly would like to be independent from her parents and live on her own, yet has anxiety about moving. “She is afraid of the unknown,” Theresa explained. Shelly is financially responsible for Alex’s needs, like clothes and diapers, but Karl and Theresa provide the roof over their heads. Since each family member is a built-in caretaker of sorts for Alex, Shelly saves quite a lot of money each month on babysitting. At this time, she is saving as much money as she can and is working on long-term goals so that she will be able to move out on her own. In some cases, the economics of multi-generational households can be beneficial for both adult children and their parents. While many young adults help defray their parents’ household expenses, living with mom and dad can also be a financial lifeline. In 2010, the poverty rate for young adults ages 25-34 who lived in multi-generational households was 9.8 percent.

ing even in the face of tax increases and government spending cuts. Last month capped a fourth-month hiring spree in which employers have added an average of 205,000 jobs a month. The hiring has been fueled by steady improvement in housing, auto sales, manufacturing and corporate profits, along with recordlow borrowing rates. Before the spree, employers added an average of 154,000 jobs from July through October and only 108,000 from April through June. “The recovery is gathering momentum,” Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics, wrote in a note to clients. The gains could boost consumer spending, adding momentum to the U.S. recovery and helping troubled economies in Europe and Asia.
The U.S. economy is forecast to grow a modest 2 percent this year. Growth will likely be held back by uncertainty about the federal budget, higher Social Security taxes and across-the-board government spending cuts that kicked in March 1. And unemployment remains high nearly four years after the end of the Great Recession. Roughly 12 million people remain out of work. See JOBS, page 2
BY JOAN LOWY and JOSHUA FREED The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The head of Delta Air Lines on Friday joined the growing opposition to the Transportation Security Administration’s new policy allowing passengers to carry small knives onto planes. Delta CEO Richard Anderson wrote in a letter to TSA Administrator John Pistole that he shares the “legitimate concerns” of the airline’s flight attendants about the new policy. Allowing small knives to be carried on board after a ban of more than 11 years “will add little value to the customer security process flow in relation to the additional risk for our cabin staff and customers,” Anderson wrote in the letter, which was obtained by The Associated Press. “If the purpose is to increase security checkpoint flow, there are much more effective steps we can take together to streamline the security checkpoints with risk-based screening mechanisms,” he wrote. Delta, based in Atlanta, is the world’s second-largest airline. It is the first major airline to join not only flight attendants but pilots, federal air marshals and insurance companies in a burgeoning backlash to the policy. Pistole announced the policy on Tuesday. TSA spokesman David Castelveter declined to comment on the letter. He said TSA plans to implement the policy on April 25 as scheduled.

Jobs (Continued from Page 1)
The unemployment rate declined in February from 7.9 percent in January mostly because more people found work. Another factor was that 130,000 people without jobs stopped looking for work last month. The government doesn’t count them as unemployed. The last time unemployment was lower was December 2008, when it was 7.3 percent. The unemployment rate is calculated from a survey of households. The number of jobs gained is derived from a separate survey of employers. Hiring would be rising even faster if governments weren’t shrinking their workforces, as they have been for nearly four years. Governments cut 10,000 jobs in February. Some $44 billion in spending cuts kicked in last week after Congress failed to reach a budget deal. The cuts are expected to shave about a half-point from economic
growth this year and lower total hiring by about 30,000 jobs a month from April through September, according to Moody’s Analytics. And most workers have had to absorb higher Social Security taxes this year. Someone earning $50,000 has about $1,000 less to spend in 2013. A household with two high-paid workers has up to $4,500 less. Stock prices rose after the report was released and strengthened later in the day. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 67 points to 14,397, its fourth straight record close. Robust auto sales and a steady housing recovery are spurring more hiring, which will trigger more consumer spending and could lead to stronger economic growth. The construction industry added 48,000 jobs in February; it’s added 151,000 since September. Manufacturing gained 14,000 jobs last month and 39,000 since November.

BY JESSICA GRESKO The Associated Press ARLINGTON, Va. — More than 150 years after the USS Monitor sank off North Carolina during the Civil War, two unknown crewmen found in the ironclad’s turret when it was raised a decade ago were buried Friday at Arlington National Cemetery. The evening burial, which included a gun salute and a band playing “America the Beautiful,” may be the last time Civil War soldiers are buried at the cemetery overlooking Washington. “Today is a tribute to all the men and women who have gone to sea, but especially to those who made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf,” said Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, who spoke at a funeral service before the burial. The Monitor made nautical history when the Union ship fought the Confederate CSS Virginia in the first battle between two ironclads on March 9, 1862. The battle was a draw. The Monitor sank about nine months later in rough seas, and 16 sailors died. In 2002, the ship’s rusted turret was raised from the Atlantic Ocean floor, and the skeletons of the two crew members were found inside. On Friday, the remains of the two men were taken to their gravesite by horsedrawn caissons, one pulled

by a team of six black horses and the other pulled by six white horses. White-gloved sailors carried the caskets to their final resting place near the cemetery’s amphitheater. A few men attending the ceremonies wore Civil War uniforms, and there were ladies in long dresses from the time. The ceremony also included “Taps,” which was written the same year that the Monitor sank and became associated with military funerals as early as the Civil War. The sailors buried Friday would not have recognized some parts of the graveside service, however. The military band played “America the Beautiful,” which wasn’t written until three decades after the Monitor sank. And the flags that draped the silver coffins were modern ones with 50 stars, not the 34-star American flag of the early 1860s. The cemetery where the men will lie, however, has strong ties to the Civil War. Arlington was established as a military cemetery during the war and is on grounds formerly owned by the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. One of the cemetery’s first monuments was a memorial to unknown Civil War soldiers. A marker with the names of all 16 men who died onboard the Monitor will ultimately be placed at the gravesite of the sailors buried Friday. Researchers were unable to positively identify the remains, though they tried reconstructing the sailors’ faces from their skulls and comparing DNA from the skeletons with living descendants of the ship’s crew and their families. Medical and Navy records narrowed the possibilities to six people. What is known is that one of the men was between 17 and 24 years old and the other was likely in his 30s. A genealogist who worked on the project believes the older sailor is Robert Williams, the ship’s fireman, who would have tended the Monitor’s coal-fired steam engine. Descendants of some of the men who died attended Friday’s ceremony. Diana Rambo of Fresno, Calif., came with four other family members. She’s related through her mother, Jane Nicklis Rowland, to Monitor crewman Jacob Nicklis, who died when the ship sank. The family didn’t know a relative had served on the ship until they received a letter requesting DNA, but Rambo said she’s since learned more about the “connection to history that we never knew we have.” She said after the ceremony that she’s less concerned about knowing for certain who was buried Friday. “It kind of doesn’t matter. It was all about honoring the 16,” she said of the ceremony.

The trail, lined with hemlock trees and rhododendron bushes, takes hikers immediately into the deep woods. A sign at the trail head warns hikers to stay on the trail. A visitor log at the entrance to the trail was signed “La Salle University” for March 8. Baker said the hikers didn’t arrive at High Rock until 5 p.m., it began to get dark, and much of the trail was covered by trees, branches and snow. He said the group would have had to cross three streams to reach the destination, and rescuers said by the time they arrived, many of the hikers said their feet were numb. “I think once they got up there, there’s 37 footprints going every which direction. … I think they couldn’t figure out which way they came from,” Baker said. Baker said to make things more confusing, the trail that would have taken them down the mountain actually goes uphill before it goes downhill. “It’s counterintuitive,” he said. He said the group was not dressed for the weather, with most of them wearing just sneakers, jeans and light jackets as temperatures began dropping into the 20s. Fugate said only a few of the students had flashlights. Caroulis said the group was expected to return to Pennsylvania today as scheduled.

On the banks of yesteryear ...
General Electric did for the refrigerator what Ford did for the automobile. Believe it or not, in 1922, a Model-T Ford cost about $450 while an electric refrigerator cost $714, putting it out of the reach of most people. In 1927, General Electric changed that with a refrigerator which sold for $215. GE believed so much in its new product that it committed $18 million to the mass production of those refrigerators and another million dollars to advertising them to the public. Over a million of those first GE Monitor-Top refrigerator models were produced. It was a good investment because by the 1930s, 60 percent of households in the US owned a refrigerator. The ice box era was gone. This refrigerator was called a “Monitor-Top” because the compressor on top of the unit looked much like the gun turret on the Civil War battleship USS Monitor. That basic design of the GE Monitor-Top refrigerator remained the same from 1927 until 1936 although a 1935 ad showed a new flat top model as well. Also interesting was that models in that ad were advertised as beginning at $77.50. The Great Depression was being felt by everyone. The Canal Commission Museum has a Monitor-Top which was used by the Pioneer Drug Store to store medical supplies. Pioneer Drugs was owned for many years by the Wahmhoff family and was located at 309 N. Main St. It was in business until the middle 1970s. The museum is open from 1-3 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday and from 9 a.m. to noon on Thursdays. Visit us to see the Monitor-Top as well as other items from the Pioneer Drug Store.

The Landeck Tornado 65 years ago
Inside of the Landeck church after being hit by a tornado in 1948. Many of us can remember where we were and what we were doing 65 years ago on St. Joseph’s Day - 19 March 1948 That was the day that terrible tornado swept through parts of Ohio, taking down the Landeck church and bringing death to two sixthgrade boys. They were Norbert Bonifas and Gerald Kill. It was lunch time, near 12:30 p.m. and most of the kids were out on the playground around school. The church was right across the street and it was common for kids to go over to church. Sometimes they went over to pray the Stations of the Cross, especially since it was still Lent. The boys were just leaving church as the deadly storm hit and the steeple came down on them. They were found on the upper landing of the front steps near the door by Nelson Grothaus, who was one of the first parishioners to arrive on the scent. The Bonifas boy died instantly after having been pinned under one of the church bells. Gerald Kill was hit by a falling brick and died on his way to the hospital. His father was with him in the ambulance. Sister Mary Paschal, the Sacristan, and two girls, Angela (Wrasman) Meyers and Velma (Hugel) Wehri, were in church cleaning the Sanctuary. When Sister Paschal realized danger was approaching, she ducked into a utility closet with the two girls in the west sacristy. The school was also damaged during the storm but the kids had been called in from the playground when Sister Mary Bernadine noticed the severity of the approaching storm. She got the kids into the center hallway on the first floor and closed the doors leading to the classrooms. This probably saved many students from injury or death. The Sisters and the children spent these few minutes, which seemed like eternity, praying the Rosary. One of those students in the hall was a twin brother of the Bonifas boy, who was fatally injured. The Kaverman family had just finished lunch. They lived over on State Road. When the weather became threatening, Hups went to close the basement windows. Don Kaverman recalled rushing to Landeck with Hups and their dad after Hups came up from the cellar and said: “The Church steeple is gone!” Don said; We had to zig-zag through the main street because of all the debris. Devastation was all around. As we approached the church and school area, Sister Herbert asked Hups to go to Delphos for help, since the tornado had torn out the telephone service. Hups went to Dr. Illig’s office near the post office, and asked Rose Luersman, the nurse to call the ambulance. At that time the ambulance service was provided by the two Delphos funeral homes – Kolkmeyer’s and Harter & Son. Art Rode, Sr. arrived about the same time as the Kavermans. Father Knoepfle sent Art to Delphos to get the priests to come and help. Three Delphos priests, the Revs. Reineck, Ottenweller and Herr, came to Landeck to comfort the children and parents. Since the main altar of the church was intact, the Blessed Sacrament was removed and taken to St. John’s Catholic Church in Delphos by Father Reineck Mel Westrich was the first Delphos Firefighter to arrive, just before the fire truck arrived. He helped carry the boys to the ambulance. Mel said during his 40 years on the Delphos Fire Department he has seen many terrible things but this was one of the worst. See LANDECK, page 10
Yoga helps some at-risk youth manage emotions
By LAURA ARENSCHIELD The Columbus Dispatch COLUMBUS (AP) — This is not the typical yoga class. The students are wearing baggy jeans, not form-fitting yoga pants. The music in the background is hip-hop and pop, not new-age instrumental. There’s constant laughter and chatter — “Stretches are hard,” one teenager complains — and friendly teasing about passing gas and taking naps. It’s a class for at-risk youths who live in a shelter for runaways, and the easy vibe so often present in pricey yoga studios has no place here. This class is at Huckleberry House, a nonprofit shelter for teenagers. Candy McDowall, a former Huckleberry House counselor, has been teaching the weekly classes there for six months. McDowall came back to Huckleberry House after taking training through Yoga Gangsters, a nonprofit organization that tries to take yoga to atrisk people. She teaches the classes as a volunteer. Each class has a different mix of kids, because each week, new kids arrive at and leave Huckleberry House. McDowall bantered right back with the five teens in one recent class, but she’s also keenly aware of her role. Many of the Huckleberry House residents are there because an adult has beaten them up or sexually assaulted them, and they might be nervous about another adult touching them. Some are there because they can’t get along with their parents, and might have trouble listening to grown-ups telling them what to do. McDowall deals with that by keeping her yoga classes loose: The kids move through the poses at their own pace, and they don’t always follow strict yogic positions. She doesn’t touch anyone until they tell her it’s OK. The program that McDowall brought to Columbus was founded by her sister, Terri Cooper, in 2008 in Miami. The intent is to use yoga to help people in crisis. Yoga Gangsters now includes classes in shelters, prisons and hospitals in Miami, Las Vegas and Phoenix. The Huckleberry House class is the only one in Columbus. The goal is to give at-risk teenagers, some of whom are prone to impulsive outbursts of anger, a technique to help them manage their emotions. “I get mad easily,” said one teenage girl staying at Huckleberry House. “So if I feel myself start to get mad, I try to take a deep breath. After yoga, I feel like all the stress has gone out of me.” Huckleberry House asked The Dispatch not to identify the teenagers because some of them could be in danger if people knew where they were. Counselors hope that yoga will affect the other teenagers who stay at the shelter as well. “These kids, they don’t have time to think about themselves, to get into their own heads and their own bodies,” said Melanie Gunther, crisis-program team leader at Huckleberry House. “This is an additional coping skill that they can take with them.” To the kids, though, yoga mainly is about headstands and stretches with funny names.

Ensuring taxpayers don’t pay for Wall Street’s failures
BY U.S. SENATOR SHERROD BROWN Most Ohioans would be surprised to know that the same Wall Street megabanks which received bailouts from taxpayers in 2009 also receive taxpayer-funded advantages today simply because of their “too big to fail” status. This taxpayer-supplied subsidy is wrong, and it puts community banks in Ohio at a competitive disadvantage. This gives them access to cheaper funding and more favorable borrowing terms than dependable Main Street institutions – like Huntington Bank or The Peoples Bank in Coldwater, Ohio – simply because the market knows that the government would choose to bailout the Wall Street megabanks if they again reach the point of collapse. A few Wall Street megabanks have become so large and so complex that no one—not their executives, nor their shareholders, nor their regulators—truly understand their financial health. Should these institutions fail, they would take the rest of the economy with them. But instead of failure, these megabanks would ask taxpayers to cover their losses, to bail them out as we did five years ago. When even the architect of the “too big to fail” banking model, former Citigroup CEO Sandy Weill, agrees that the biggest banks should be broken up, we should all realize it’s time to act. Although the biggest megabanks were too big to fail before the crisis, they have only gotten bigger. The four largest behemoths, now ranging from $1.4 trillion to $2.3 trillion in assets, are the result of 37 banks merging 33 times. In 1995, the six biggest U.S. banks had assets equal to 18 percent of GDP. Today, they are about 63 percent of GDP. They now have twice the combined assets of the rest of the top 50 U.S. banks. I’ve visited several community banks throughout Ohio recently and have talked to community bank executives about the disadvantage they face competing against Wall Street megabanks. Millions of families and small businesses depend on their community banks for their savings accounts, home mortgages, and business loans. Community banks help create countless jobs and provide safe and reliable financing options to Ohio’s families. Taking the appropriate steps will lead to more mid-sized banks – not a few megabanks – creating competition, increasing lending, and providing incentives for banks to lend the right way. Just about the only people who will not benefit from my plan are a few Wall Street executives. That’s why my Republican colleague, Senator David Vitter from Louisiana, and I are working on bipartisan legislation to address this “Too Big to Fail” problem. We have pressed regulators to require the biggest banks to have more of their own capital on hand to cover their losses, so taxpayers won’t be asked to do so again. We have asked the government watchdog group GAO to quantify the annual subsidy that megabanks receive from the U.S. government. And now we are taking action to prevent economic collapse and taxpayer-funded bailouts in the future. American taxpayers don’t want us to wait until another crisis develops. They want us to ensure that Wall Street megabanks will never again monopolize our nation’s wealth or gamble away the American dream. We cannot restore Americans’ faith in the financial markets and in representative government until we ensure that taxpayers are not paying for Wall Street’s failures.
A friend’s comment on Facebook spurred this John Tesh digression. She said her therapist weighed 5 pounds and was covered in fur. Amen, sister. What is better than coming home from a hard day at work and seeing that little guy or girl that is so happy to see you? Nothing. Well, maybe a few other things but not here. Who better to pour out the frustrations of the day to than someone who is always going to agree with you? This is a nobrainer. We’ve already been over the obvious benefits of having a dog. They are great companions. They like to play. They love unconditionally. They don’t want to borrow the car. They won’t be going to college. Pets, including cats, ferrets and hamsters and such, can lower blood pressure. Studies have shown that Alzheimer’s patients have fewer anxious outbursts if there is an animal in the home. Researchers say heart attack patients who have pets survive longer than those without, according to several studies. Male pet owners have less sign of heart disease - lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels - than non-owners. The benefits, both physical and emotional are proven. What they do is steal your heart and make it so you are just as excited to see them when you get home. I love to bury my face in Ringo’s neck when I move in for a hug. It’s so soft and feels so good. He’s the perfect size for hugging. Unfortunately, he has to be in the mood for hugging. Jodi Arias update. How interesting is it that Arizona is one of the few states where during a trial, the

On the Other Hand
by Nancy Spencer
DEAR EDITOR: I live on State Route 66 north of Delphos. I would like to let the person know that stole my “LET IT SNOW” sign, that I would like it back. It was taken the night of the snow storm (3/5/13). I did see you as I sat in my living room but I didn’t know you were taking my sign. I am not the only one that saw what you did. Being the season of Lent, if it means giving up my snow sign, I can give that up, too. But, if you’re conscience gets the best of you, feel free to return my sign and I will not pass any judgment. I do understand some may not like the Winter season. I don’t like the cold but I do like to see snow. The sign is my way of making light of the matter in addition to helping to protect my mailbox from the snow plows blasting it with snow. I have placed that sign there every year for almost 10 years and I have never had to replace my mailbox. “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32. God bless, Ryan Trentman Delphos
jury can ask questions of the defendant as well. I was unaware this was even an option and in the good faith of seeing justice prevail, I think it should be allowed everywhere. How many times have you seen an interview with a juror after a trial and they had questions that weren’t answered and sometimes not even addressed? Well, in Arizona you get to at least attempt to find your own answers. I think during a trial, especially one as serious as this one, the jury should have as much information as possible. Jodi Arias has been on the stand for weeks now. I think it’s been too long and I agree with the analysts who think all that face time with the jury will foster an attachment and they won’t be able to put her on death row. They may not like her and they may not believe her but she’s become a fixture in their lives. I don’t think they are going to be able to give her the death penalty. I can’t believe I have let myself be caught up in this. I’m afraid I am going to be on jury watch with the rest of the HLN nation. I can’t even believe I’m writing this but it has me sucked in. It’s a train wreck. I can’t look away. Where’s Ringo? I need a hug.
WASHINGTON — Excuse me while I roll my eyes over the latest “mommy war.” It’s not that I don’t care about the substance, but because I’ve lived long enough to know how it turns out. Some wars can’t be won because to the victor go spoils no one really wants. And the children always lose. The most recent skirmish is taking place at the great and once-powerful Yahoo under the leadership of new CEO Marissa Mayer, the fifth in five years. The preceding sentence should be read as: “OMG, do whatever you have to do to fix this!” Thus, Mayer issued orders that telecommuting employees start showing up at the office. You’d have thought she had called for the sacrifice of everyone’s first-born. What kind of woman does such a thing? Doesn’t she know that balancing work and family was a joke until technology made it possible to work from home? If she knew it, she didn’t care. And therein lies the rub. Mayer not only irked her employees; she did the unthinkable. She boinked the sisterhood. Mayer was already familiar with the fallout that comes from acting as an individual rather than as a member of the collective.
When she appeared on the cover of Fortune magazine last fall as one of the 50 most powerful women —
Yahoo’s in the crossfire
Point of View
looking a little too svelte for someone who had just had a baby — the blogosphere lit up. Apparently, Mayer’s critics wanted her to have been photographed while pregnant, conveying the message that pregnant women are also strong and powerful. Whatever. Everything is about messaging these days, except when one doesn’t like the content of the message, such as: Hire a baby sitter and get to work. Business is business, after all, and nothing is less sensitive than the bottom line. I am not as tough as I sound. No one is more sympathetic to working mothers than I. (And, no, sorry, most fathers are not tending the young the way mothers do, and this is because they are not mothers. If you’re having trouble with this, put on your Clearasil and go to bed.) My sympathy stems from having decided long ago to
work from home upon realizing that my child needed me more than my employer did. But I am fortunate. Mine is the sort of work that can be accomplished from home — and, most important, I have a husband. Highly recommended. It is thus understandable why Yahoo workers are dismayed — and why others who hoped for such civilized options for others — are disappointed. Adding to the insult is that Mayer has built a nursery for her own child — out of her own pocket — next to her office. Such tidy solutions obviously are available to few and the fear is that all women now will be held to the impossible standard set by Mayer. Let’s be clear: Mayer is one rare bird. But should she be? Aren’t we supposed to say “More power to her” right about now? By what dictum must Mayer conduct her life — and her company — to please others? She crashed the glass ceiling and we’re upset that she made a mess? This is how mommy wars get started and why they’ll never end. There’s no winning because, except for the best educated and wealthiest, it isn’t possible to reach the top of the corporate ladder and also take care of babies. In a saner world, we wouldn’t try. Meanwhile, Mayer is
doing what is right for her and what she thinks will improve her company’s performance. She clearly believes that making her talented workers convene in the same physical space is crucial to improving performance. She is probably not wrong to imagine that pooling talent will engender greater creativity, synergy and all those other happy buzzwords of successful enterprises if people talk to each other in person. The Internet may be a universe of free-ranging thought, but there’s nothing like the chemical combustion of human contact that leads to the birthing of ideas. Here’s one: Why not build a stateof-the-art day care center at Yahoo for all those employees who, though their minds may be present, will have left their hearts at home? Mayer, who obviously sees the benefit to her own child, could send a long-overdue message to corporate America: Having children nearby makes workers less stressed and more productive. Call it “The BassinetBottom Line Initiative.” If innovation plus compassion leads to profit, who knows? We may finally declare a truce after all.

Saturday, March 9, 2013
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ delphosherald.com ELIDA — The last time St. John’s and St. Henry played – back at “The Vatican” on Jan. 25 — St. Henry dominated the paint en route to a 71-57 victory in a MAC boys basketball game. Kyle Stahl had scored 22 points, Alex Post 16 and Ryan Mikesell 15 in that contest. This time around, Stahl was held to 13 points and Mikesell 14 by the Jays’ surround-Stahl zone. The Jays outrebounded the Redskins 30-27 (10-15 offensive) and used stellar shooting from both the field and the line to oust the Redskins 63-46 in a Division IV Elida District final Friday night on the Union Bank Court of the Elida Fieldhouse. St. John’s seniors Ryan Buescher (24 markers, 11 boards, 4 steals, 3 blocks) and Curtis Geise (23 counters - 11-of-11 from the line - 3 dimes) led the way. “Our adjustment was simply to defend the paint better. We gave up way too many points in the paint that night,” St. John’s coach Aaron Elwer explained. “We’ve been playing with much more sense of urgency defensively; the kids have bought into the need to play better defense and have executed our game plans extremely well since. We were going to make them beat us over the top and fortunately, they weren’t hitting from outside.” St. Henry coach Eric Rosenbeck agreed. “We have talked as a coaching staff all year that if anyone was going to beat us, it was going to be forcing us to shoot over the top and not make shots. That’s what happened tonight; credit St. John’s for making that adjustment,” he continued. “We’ve been shooting the ball from the perimeter well lately, especially Jordan

Drivers eager to take Gen-6 car for a real spin
By GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press LAS VEGAS — A daylong rainstorm kept NASCAR’s teams mostly confined to their garages Friday at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Several drivers felt the rain was also the only thing protecting the track’s speed record from the new Gen-6 race car. Although Denny Hamlin’s criticism of the new car drew heavy attention and a hefty fine from NASCAR this week, most drivers think it’s too early to make any negative judgment about their speedy new rides. In fact, this weekend is the Gen-6’s first real chance to show what it’s got — and the drivers are eager to get rolling. “I think as we learn more and more about these cars and what makes them work and drive better, things can only get better as far as the product we put out there every week,” Dale Earnhardt Jr. said Friday. While Hamlin correctly pointed out how many adjustments still must be made to the car, many more drivers seem intrigued by the possibilities and potential in their eye-catching new vehicles. What’s more, NASCAR and its three manufacturers built the new car largely to improve racing on 1.5-mile intermediate tracks like the tri-oval in Vegas, where Brad Keselowski will start from the pole on Sunday. The first race in the Gen-6 was with restrictor plates at Daytona, a high-banked, 2.5mile track. Its second outing was at Phoenix on a fairly flat, 1-mile track with few of the challenges drivers will face elsewhere. While Phoenix featured little passing or side-by-side racing, most drivers seem to think the quality of racing will improve on the intermediate tracks that make up most of their schedule. “For a new car, I thought last week was a really good debut for it,” Tony Stewart said. “I personally think it’s off to a great start and it’s got a lot of potential. We had good racing, we had a good finish and everybody is going to keep learning. Everybody has their piece of the equation that they will figure out. You have to start somewhere and for it to debut the way that it has, I think, has been a very positive start.” Although Hamlin’s pessimism got headlines this week
By Charlie Warnimont DHI Correspondent email@example.com FINDLAY — There was a stretch in the fourth quarter when the Leipsic basketball team was struggling. That’s when the Viking seniors, led by guard Devin Mangas, took control of their Division IV district final against Columbus Grove. Leipsic shrugged off a period of sluggish play to hold off a fourth-quarter charge by the Bulldogs to post a 66-59 win against their Putnam County League rival before a packed house at Liberty-Benton. The win sends the Vikings (22-4) to the Bowling Green State University Division regional Tuesday against Evergreen at 6:15 p.m. in the Stroh Center. The Bulldogs saw their season end at 18-7. Leipsic had a 53-43 lead after three quarters and were up 55-43 after a Zach Kuhlman basket early in the final quarter. But over the next 3-plus minutes, the Vikings’ offense disappeared as the Bulldogs trimmed all but one point off their deficit when sophomore guard Jace Darbyshire drained a 3-pointer from the left corner. Five different Grove players scored during

their 11-0 run that had them within 55-54 with 4:22 left to play. Leipsic coach Scott Maag used a timeout at that time to settle his veteran squad down and that’s when Mangas took over for the Vikings. Mangas, who had 32 points in Leipsic’s district semifinal win Tuesday night, scored six points (2 baseline jumpers and 2 free throws) that righted the ship for the Vikings, while Darbyshire knocked down another 3-pointer for the Bulldogs to keep them within striking distance. However, Mangas didn’t stop after the six points as he added five more points to his total, three free throws and a basket just before the final buzzer as he finished with 34 points on the night. The Bulldogs’ final points came on two Will Vorhees free throws with 12.1 seconds left. Among Mangas’s 34 points were a second-quarter 3-pointer that put the senior over the 1,000 point mark for his career. “It was a little frustrating,” Columbus Grove coach Ryan Stechschulte said. “Mangas was unbelievable tonight. When a kid does that, you almost want to watch and almost congratulate him while the game’s going on. He made some tough shots, especially in the fourth quarter after we made that nice run to get it down to one. He then made two 14-15 footers on the baseline that pushes the lead back to five.” Mangas stepped up at key times all night for the Vikings. The first time was in the opening quarter as he scored seven points, including a 3-pointer that gave Leipsic its first lead of the night. Columbus Grove jumped out quick on the favored Vikings scored the first six points of the game on two free throws by Derek Rieman, a Brady Shafer putback and a Vorhees basket. Mangas scored four of the Vikings’ first six points that kept them close until they scored eight straight points to take a 16-14 lead. Aric Schroeder and Mangas had back-to-back 3-pointers to give Leipsic the lead before Vorhees hit a jumper to even the score at 16-16. The two teams spend the
second quarter going back and forth as the Bulldogs had a 22-20 lead after a Rieman basket before two free throws by Austin Brown and a Schroeder putback returned the lead to Leipsic. A Rieman basket tied the game at 24-24 before Mangas hit a three-pointer (his 1,000th point) and Derek Steffan followed a short time later with a three that put the Vikings up six. Leipsic went on to take a 34-27 lead into halftime as Mangas closed out the first half scoring hitting two of three free throw.” The Vikings threatened to break the game open late in the third quarter as they took a 10-point lead at 50-38 on two free throws by Mangas and a basket. Vorhees, who was slowed by the Viking defense after 10 first-quarter points, stopped the run before Mangas and Darbyshire ended the third quarter trading threes. Schroeder added 11 points to the Viking win and Steffan added five points. Vorhees led the Bulldogs with 18 points. Vorhees did miss a portion of the second quarter with foul trouble. Rieman added 10 points to the Grove total and Darbyshire had nine points.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie from through April 30 is 4 fish per angler with a 15” minimum size limit. Daily bag limits for walleye will be set on May 1 of each year; a special publication announcing the new daily limits will be available at Wildlife District offices, the web site and license outlets. … The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. … The steelhead trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler; minimum size limit is 12”. … The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler with a 14” minimum size limit. Lake Erie still has too much ice for boat access but the ice is not good enough for ice fishing. There have not been any reports of fishing activity (as of Tuesday) over the past week. … The water temperature is 32 degrees off of Toledo and 33 degrees off of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast. Steelhead: Mainstream rivers and tribs are open and very high; rain changing to snowy conditions cover the lakeshore area. Fishing conditions will remain poor for the next several days. Fresh steelhead will be well-distributed throughout the stream reaches; spin-fishing anglers were using eggs, jigs tipped with maggots, or minnows. Fly-fishers were using streamers, egg patterns including sucker spawn and woolly buggers and other nymphs. —— New for 2013! Adjustments in Ohio Bass Regulations By Scott Hale, Fish Management and Research Adjustments in Ohio bass fishing regulations became effective March 1. Before hitting the water this year, anglers should take a moment to review the new fishing digest to see changes in “statewide” and “specific water and site” regulations. Statewide, a new 12-inch minimum length limit has been implemented on all public waters for largemouth,
smallmouth and spotted bass where there are no other special regulations. This includes all ponds, lakes, reservoirs, rivers and streams. The daily limit of five fish per day remains in effect at these waters for these black basses, singly or in combination. Some reservoirs that previously had special regulations were changed to the new statewide 12-inch length limit. These waters had either a 12- to 15-inch slot length limit or a 15-inch minimum length limit that had not improved fishing as had been hoped. The 12- to 15-inch slot length limit was removed from Timbre Ridge Lake. In addition, 15-inch minimum length limits were removed from the following (county in parentheses): Caesar Creek Lake (Warren/ Clinton/Greene); Kenton Lake (Gallia); Lake Milton, including the Mahoning River connecting Berlin Lake and Lake Milton (Mahoning); Monroe Lake (Monroe); Monroeville Reservoir (Huron); Pike Lake (Pike); Sippo Lake (Stark); and Vesuvius Lake (Lawrence). At specific waters identified in the 2013-14 fishing digest, two new regulations are being tried to increase the sizes and numbers of larger bass. These special regulations include a reduced number of largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass that anglers may keep per day, singly or in combination. Each involves what are referred to as “split daily limits” where anglers may only keep a specified number of fish below a certain length and above a certain length. The first of these regulations is a special 15-inch length limit with a 4-fish split daily limit. With this approach, anglers may keep two fish under 15 inches and two 15 inches or larger. Unlike a traditional 15-inch minimum length limit, the split daily limit allows limited harvest of bass less than 15 inches. The purpose is to thin out the portion of bass populations that are less than 15 inches to promote growth of bass to larger sizes. This regulation is referred to as a “15 2-and-2.” It is in effect at the following reservoirs: Acton Lake (Preble/Butler); Findley Lake (Lorain); Hargus Lake (Pickaway); Highlandtown Lake (Columbiana); New Lyme Lake (Ashtabula); Paint Creek Lake (Highland/Ross); Salt Fork
Lake (Guernsey); Silver Creek Lake (Summit); Snowden Lake (Athens); and Upper Sandusky #2 (Wyandot). The second split daily limit is referred to as a “Super Slot”, a 14- to 20-inch slot length limit intended to increase anglers’ chances of catching trophy bass. With this, anglers may keep two fish under 14 inches and one 20 inches or larger, for a total of three fish per day. However, anglers will not be allowed to keep any fish in the protected slot. This regulation will be limited to the following waters: All American Electric Power (AEP) ponds and reservoirs, including AEP ReCreation Lands, Conesville Coal Lands and Avondale Wildlife Area with all ponds and reservoirs included in each daily limit per angler (Coshocton/ Guernsey/Muskingum/Morgan/ Noble/Perry); Belmont Lake (Belmont); Guilford Lake (Columbiana); Killdeer Plains Reservoir (Wyandot); Kiser Lake (Champaign); Long Lake (Summit); Oxbow Lake (Defiance); Spencer Lake (Medina); St. Joseph Wildlife Area ponds (Williams); Tycoon Lake (Gallia); Wingfoot Lake (Portage); and Wolf Run Lake (Noble). These adjustments in regulations were developed through: 1) analysis of historical fish survey, creel survey and angler-reported tournament results; 2) an evaluation of management options and fisheries objectives; and 3) extensive angler input through on-line surveys, creel surveys, open houses and meetings with sportsmen. Anglers should keep in mind that Ohio still has other special regulations for black bass at a number of waters around the state that continue to be in effect. These include traditional 14-inch, 15-inch and 18-inch minimum length limits and 12- to 15-inch slot length limits, all with five fish daily limits on Lake Erie and inland waters and six fish daily limits on the Ohio River. As well, a new fishing regulation took effect March 1 at the American Electric Power (AEP) ponds and reservoirs, including AEP ReCreation Lands, Conesville Coal Lands and Avondale Wildlife Area (Coshocton/ Guernsey/Muskingum/Morgan/ Noble/Perry) with all ponds and reservoirs included in each daily
largely because NASCAR spotlighted it by fining him $25,000, Earnhardt and Stewart are among the drivers who are encouraged by their early experience in the new cars — and Danica Patrick certainly isn’t complaining after winning her historic pole at Daytona. “We’re still learning a lot, even by ourselves, in trying to understand the race tracks and how the car wants to be set up,” Jimmie Johnson said. “Then at these higher speeds, downforce-wise, this will be our first exposure to it (in Las Vegas). I tried to get around some cars. Things seem stable at least catching one car but when you get all 43 in a big pack and the air is really swirling around, then the cars drive a lot different. There will be a lot of learning going on come Sunday.”

limit per angler. It applies to sunfishes in all of the more than 350 ponds and lakes among over 80,000 acres of AEP lands available for public fishing, hunting, hiking and camping and is intended to help sustain the high-quality bluegill-fishing known in these waters. The new regulation is a 20-fish daily limit that will prevent overharvest of sunfishes and ensure opportunities for a greater number of anglers to harvest quality fish. For more information, contact:

Rainbow trout releases will take place between through May 3. Each trout measures 10-13 inches and anglers are reminded that the daily catch limit for inland lakes is five trout. Rainbow trout are raised at state fish hatcheries and released by the ODNR DOW. Local and area counties (Lake, County, Publish Date Event): Rush Run Lake, Preble, 8-Mar; Sycamore State Park. Montgomery, 22-Mar; Van Wert Reservoir #1, Van Wert, 22-Mar; Quarry Park, Marion, 28-Mar; Clark Lake, Clark, 28-Mar; Lima Lake, Allen, 11-Apr; Tawawa Lake, Shelby, 18-Apr; Schoonover Lake, Allen, 19-Apr; Davis Lake, Auglaize, 19-Apr; Geirtz Lake, Hancock, 3-May. ——Maysville High School takes top honors at State Archery Tournament; NASP continues to grow COLUMBUS — Maysville High School (Zanesville) won the 2013 Ohio National Archery in the Schools (NASP) State Tournament on March 1 with a score of 3,397 points, according to the ODNR. The 2013 NASP tournament was held at Franklin County Veterans Memorial in
conjunction with the Arnold Sports Festival, the annual fitness event developed by former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The DOW coordinates the Ohio NASP tournament. “NASP is currently taught in 620 Ohio schools and this curriculum emphasizes archery safety in addition to improving the concentration, self-esteem and confidence of the students who participate,” said ODNR Director James Zehringer. “ODNR hosts one of the largest NASP tournaments in the nation and we want to encourage Ohio’s young archers to continue showcasing their talents.” The top male and female archers were determined by a shootoff between the top three boys and top three girls from each division — elementary, middle school and high school. At the conclusion of the shoot-off, Clay Williams, a freshman at Philo High School, and Katie Ruffner, a sophomore at Logan High School, were announced as the overall male and female champions. Hocking College in Nelsonville offered scholarships to the first-, second- and third-place individual finishers by final score. Waynedale High School received this year’s spirit award for demonstrating enthusiasm and sportsmanship during the competition. A total of 1,446 archers from 78 teams competed in the 2013 tournament, which is an increase from 1,319 archers last year. Each competitor could score a maximum of 300 points by shooting arrows as close to the center of a target as possible. Awards were given for teams and individuals with high scores in the elementary, middle school and high school divisions. Thirty-four Ohio teams received qualifying scores, making them eligible to participate in the NASP National Invitational Tournament, which will be held May 10-11 in Louisville, Ky. Ohio was the 10th state to participate in NASP. The DOW introduced NASP in 2004 with 12 pilot schools. Statewide expansion of the program began in January 2005; 2005-06 was the program’s first full academic year. Growth in NASP has continued across the state
and more than half of Ohio’s 88 counties currently have at least one school participating in NASP. Last year, more than 1,300 students participated in the 2012 Ohio NASP State Tournament. NASP is used to teach target archery in a school’s gym. The curriculum covers archery, safety, equipment, technique, concentration skills and selfimprovement. Visit ohionasp. com for more information about the program. For more information, contact: Vicki Ervin, ODNR Division of Wildlife at 614-2656325; or Matt Eiselstein, ODNR Office of Communications at 614-265-6860 —— Ohio fishing, hunting and trapping licenses on sale COLUMBUS — Ohio’s 2013-2014 fishing, hunting and trapping licenses are now available for purchase. These will be valid immediately upon purchase through Feb. 28, 2014. White-tailed deer and fall wild turkey hunting permits will go on sale June 1. New this year, the licenses include a transaction receipt and effective dates that match the fishing, hunting or trapping season. Licenses and permits purchased online or at retail outlets are printed on plain white paper that is not waterproof. Licenses and permits will be printed along with additional information relevant to the license or permit purchased. They can be purchased online at wildohio.com and at hundreds of agent outlets throughout the state. A complete list of participating license sales agents can be found at wildohio. com. Each license buyer must have a Social Security Number (SSN) recorded in the system. However, people who purchased licenses last year can now use their customer ID number in place of a SSN. SSNs are required to purchase a recreational license, regardless of age, for the purpose of child support collection enforcement under Federal Statute 42. As a recreational license provider, the DOW is obligated to comply with this law and cannot issue a license or permit without the SSN of the purchaser. A proper security system is in place to protect SSNs and any databases that contain them.

ing more. Your brother knows how you feel, and he has asked you to accept his decision. He understands the consequences. We think he would greatly appreciate your support right now, and we hope you can plaster on that smile and provide it. Dear Annie: This is for all those retirees who don’t know what to do with themselves. A year ago, my health forced me into an early retirement. All of my co-workers and most of my friends lived far from my home. During my first week off, I heard of a yoga class at the local senior center. As a baby boomer, I thought I was too young to go to a “senior” center. But that one class has led to a group of retired educators, like me, who go bicycling twice a week in good weather and meet for lunch in the cold season. I volunteer at the senior center, take painting classes at a local art center and meet lots of retired folks with similar interests. I have made some good friends, found a great traveling companion and have a lot of fun. Please point early retirees to senior centers. Remember that you need to go somewhere at least half a dozen times before you begin to feel at home. — Retired and Busy

The Herald – 9
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, MARCH 10, 2013 Unless someone has something great to offer you in the year ahead, a partnership arrangement might not be your cup of tea. You might be more fortunate in an independent endeavor. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -It all depends upon what you value more -- if you believe that material success is much better than social triumph, you should be pleased with what transpires today. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you get a chance to implement something that you’ve long thought about, don’t hesitate for one minute. Someone could eventually spot what you see and beat you to it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Proceed very slowly when it comes to something that can get quite costly if it’s not handled properly. Acting impulsively could bruise you financially. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It’s never smart to disregard the opinions of your associates, unless you have good justification for doing so. In that case, you must have absolute proof that you are right and they are wrong. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Try to accurately gauge the intent of a friend who asks for your opinion. She or he might merely want your endorsement and not a hard, honest analysis. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -There’s a chance you could become involved in an endeavor that has great promise but is presented in a manner that disguises much of its true worth. Carefully check things out. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- An important decision should be made with a view of its long-range benefits and not merely on the immediate possibilities. Keep your eyes on the long game. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Although your ideas should prove to be good when carried out, don’t deceive yourself into thinking they are much grander than they actually are. Be a realist. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Provided you don’t take any undue risks, your commercial affairs should go rather well. It’ll pay to operate along traditional lines, instead of taking big gambles. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you are too difficult to please, your colleagues might lose heart and stop trying. It’s important for you to properly acknowledge their efforts. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You’re a creative thinker, and what you conceive will have excellent chances for success. Conversely, you’re also a good talker and you could replace productivity with copious chatter. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Although Lady Luck tends to favor most of your involvements, when it comes to financial matters, she may still insist that you earn everything you get. MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 There are strong indications that you could establish three important relationships in the year ahead that could benefit you materially and socially. However, these new pals might not mix too well with your old friends. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Exercise your initiative instead of waiting for someone else to make the first move. Your chances for achievement are excellent, if you utilize your talents. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -If you want to accomplish as much as possible, don’t be afraid to request assistance. You’ll get no volunteers if nobody knows you need help. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It will take a positive frame of mind to realize any of your hopes and expectations. Don’t allow any doubts, even a small one, to get a toehold. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The rate of your accomplishment can be enhanced if you clearly define your goals. Clarity will provide the added time you need to get everything done. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Try to avoid involvements that would inhibit your independence and mobility. Additionally, you need activities that are mentally challenging instead of physically routine. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Normally, you’re not overjoyed by changes not of your making, yet you’ll be able to adapt quite advantageously to today’s unexpected developments. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t discount your mate’s ideas about issues of mutual importance, even if they are very different from your own. His or her view might be clearer than yours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You won’t be content frittering your time away. Tackling a weighty endeavor will be the only thing that brings you happiness. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Devote some time to an activity or a sport that you enjoy. Taking a break from your everyday routines could refurbish your psyche and attitude. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- If at all possible, try to entertain some friends to whom you feel socially obligated. Contact them as early as possible to join you in an impromptu get-together. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can best gratify your restlessness by getting in touch with a friend whom you haven’t seen much lately. It won’t matter where you meet, you’ll just enjoy each other’s company. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your prospects for achieving success continue to look good, especially if you choose to work on an idea you’ve been contemplating that could make or save you some money.
