Jordan Rex of Spencerville High School was crowned Friday night in the 2013 Peony Pageant held at Marsh Auditorium. She said afterward she was very surprised to have won. “I more came out to do this as an experience, and I met amazing girls, and that was all I was looking for. It was an opportunity to meet some really nice people,” she stated.”I am so surprised by myself because I thought I was going to be so nervous coming out here, shaking so bad that somebody would be thinking, ‘What is she doing? Having a seizure on stage?’ So I think it was really neat to come out here and actually do better than I expected in my own mind.” Rex won not only the title, but also the talent competition during the pageant. She signed to the song “Listen” by Beyonce, drawing a huge ovation from the crowd. Rex admitted that she really had to overcome her nerves to perform. “Overall, I just was so nervous, so it’s really cool to have such a great reward for all the hard work we put in this week.” she said. “The hardest thing was getting up here the very first time.

Ohio university cancels abortion-provider pact
TOLEDO (AP) — The University of Toledo Medical Center said it has canceled a medical transfer agreement with an area abortion provider after a state lawmaker and antiabortion group objected and claimed it was illegal. University President Lloyd Jacobs notified the Capital Care Network in west Toledo that it will not renew the one-year transfer agreement when it expires on July 31, The Toledo Blade reported. The university also ended negotiations for a similar contract with another abortion provider. State law requires ambulatory care centers, such as abortion clinics, to have an agreement to transfer patients to a hospital if there are complications. Last year, the state Department of Health fined Capital Care $25,000 and threatened to suspend its license unless it secured the required transfer agreement. Capital Care then signed an agreement with the UT Medical Center last August. But Ohio Right to Life and Republican Rep. Lynn Wachtmann objected to the contract as a violation of the ban on state-funded entities supporting abortion. Wachtmann said he intended to introduce legislation to make it illegal for state-funded hospitals to have transfer agreements with abortion providers. Kellie Copeland, executive director of the proabortion rights group NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, said the University of Toledo Medical Center was “bullied” into cancelling the transfer agreements.

‘Journey to the British Isles,’ Part 3

Louise Miller and her husband Robert (“Cookie”), of Ottoville took a trip to Scotland, Ireland and Wales in the fall of 1998 with Bob and Arlene Bendele, their close friends and neighbors. The following is the third excerpt from the journal Louise kept throughout their journey, accompanied by photos.

A Medieval Dinner at Knappogue Castle in Ennis. Louise and Robert Miller, right, sat on the dais with two couples they met on the trip. (Submitted photos) have a colored X on their back to distinguish one farmer’s sheep from another farmer’s flock. Some had a green X, some a red one and so on. We ate at a small restaurant in the Ring. I took a picture of a multitude of signs each pointing in a different direction to another town. However, the road only went one way. We started out at 8 this morning and came to a Franciscan Abbey. The altar was much like ours at home. The houses around here are pastel colors. We took a 20 minute ferry down the Shannon River. We are at Ennis, population 15,000. This evening we went to the Knappogue Castle for a medieval dinner. Cookie and I, Jackie and Al and another couple sat on the dais. We had bibs to wear and they took pictures. The servers put on a play for several hundred people. These castles are all stone, with some dark wooden interiors. Today we visited the Cliffs of Moher. These are very high cliffs bordering the Atlantic Ocean. The waves strike the cliffs violently, which causes a heavy mist. Our next stop is at Our Lady of Knoch. A housewife had apparitions of Mary in the countryside near here. We visited a church that marked the spot. This area was overworked in the 1800s and they experienced the potato famine. We are heading to Galway, Ireland. On the way we came across the See ISLES, page 10

Never knew I had a weakness, until I tried that Guinness. Now I’m alarmed, my liver is harmed, it will give my doctor some business. This is just too much fun! We came to the city of Tralee, population 17,000. It reminded me of the song Rose of Tralee. We started down a narrow road called the Ring of Kerry. A ring is a fort. There are stone fences very close alongside the road. The buses have strict orders to only go one way. Well, one fellow ignored the rules and we had to pass him. It was so close that they each had to take off their mirrors and the people on the buses guided them past one another. There are lots of strolling sheep in these gently rolling hills. They each

Rook to king: Ohio boy, 8, becomes chess standout
BY COLLIN BINKLEY COLUMBUS (AP) — His opponents look across the chessboard at a small boy with legs that dangle from the chair and hands that make the pieces seem too big. But they aren’t fooled. They have heard of Chris Shen, an 8-year-old from Powell who, just two years after he picked up the game, is known as the No. 1 player of his age in the country, according to the U.S. Chess Federation, and No. 3 of his age in the world. On websites, chess enthusiasts have described him as “superhuman.” “People are watching him, most definitely,” said David Bills, president of the Ohio Scholastic Chess Association. “The sky’s the limit with him.” Chris is considered a standout in an elite class of young players because of how quickly he has risen. In third grade, he ranks as the No. 16 youth player in Ohio — with most of the young people ahead of him in high school. He likes toys and cartoons but has daydreams about chess. “Sometimes the teacher says: ‘Chris, you need to get out of your chess world. Get into the math world,”’ said

Ohio governor to meet with murder victim’s family
BY ANDREW WELSHHUGGINS COLUMBUS (AP) — The governor has agreed to a rare meeting with the family of a murder victim whose morbidly obese killer he spared from execution. The meeting follows Gov. John Kasich’s decision in December to grant clemency to Ronald Post on the grounds that he had poor legal representation. Kasich said at the time that all criminal defendants deserve adequate defenses. “This decision should not be viewed by anyone as a diminishing of this awful crime or the pain it has caused,” Kasich added in a statement. Kasich’s decision was unrelated to Post’s better-known argument: that at 450 pounds he was too fat to be executed humanely in the 1983 shooting death of Elyria motel clerk Helen Vantz during a robbery. The Morning Journal of Lorain reported Friday that Vantz’s oldest son, Michael Vantz, hopes to meet with Kasich next month.

Chris, who attends Tyler Run Elementary School in the Olentangy district. His dad taught him the game two years ago after teachers reported that Chris had too much energy in class. “I just wanted him to sit down, to sit down for, like, 20 minutes if he can,” said Jeff Shen, a chemist who knew the game’s rules but never played it seriously. Curious to test his son’s skill, Shen enrolled him in a tournament a week later. It went poorly, but Chris kept trying and, in two months, earned his first tournament victory. Seasoned players debate whether Chris has the natural talent to be called a prodigy, but they agree that his success is largely a result of his outsize drive to win. “You see this very little kid in this extreme level of focus and concentration,” said Alan Casden, one of his coaches. “He doesn’t act like a child on the chessboard; he acts like a hardworking adult.” Chris studies chess three hours a night with his father, analyzing past games or reading strategy books. Every weekend, they drive to tournaments throughout the United States.

Peggy Lies, 51, of Spencerville, died in her home early Friday morning. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at the Thomas E. Bayliff Funeral Home in Spencerville.

Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols said he was unaware of a similar meeting in the past. The family proposes “a nonhostile, non-threatening venue of your choice,” for a meeting, according to a Dec. 28 letter to Kasich from Michael Vantz that was provided Friday to The Associated Press. “Lacking the actual, long, long awaited execution, the next best thing for the members of the immediate and extended family of Helen Vantz would be an audience with the powerful individual who deemed that execution to be inappropriate,” the letter said. “Only a face-to-face with you would suffice in the absence of the fulfillment of the justice.” Kasich, a Republican, commuted Post’s death sentence to life without the possibility of parole, a decision applauded by Post’s attorneys. Kasich also spared killer John Eley in 2012, basing his decision on Eley acting under the direction of another person and what he called Eley’s limited mental capacity.

Julie is convinced her greedy daughter-in-law Darlene had something to do with the mysterious circumstances surroundSpring is the perfect time to enjoy this story of how life often collides with nature.


Spring showers in blue and green this April for National Donate Life Month! The month-long annual observance honors those everyday heroes who say yes to organ, eye and tissue donation. Support the power of donation by getting creative with blue and green. Join me in drawing attention to the need for organ and tissue donors by wearing the blue and green colors of Donate Life for National Blue and Green Day on Friday, April 19. The initiative offers HOPE to the more than 117,500 Americans waiting for a life-saving transplant; HONORS the heroes of organ, eye and tissue donation; REMEMBERS those that died waiting for their second chance at life; and CELEBRATES the recipients who received the gift of life through transplantation. Heroes aren’t just the people who save lives by running into burning buildings. In April, we’re honoring the quiet heroes of donation. We celebrate all registered donors this month who selflessly say yes to sharing the Gift of Life at the end of life. Have you said yes? Make the choice to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor today. Just one donor has the potential to save eight lives through organ donation and enhance 50 more through tissue and cornea donation. You can register or learn more about Blue and Green Day by visiting www.lifelineofohio. org. The more than 117,500 Americans – including 3,400 Ohioans - waiting for an organ transplant thank YOU this spring for spreading the message! Kent Holloway, CEO, Lifeline of Ohio

A young man, his mother and Shadow find the courage to embark upon the treacherous journey from war-torn Afghanistan to the safety of a relative’s home in Manchester, England. ing her son Larry’s death. She desperately wants to get a confession out of Darlene — and to ensure the safety of Larry’s daughter, Olivia. As Myra, Annie, and their cohorts dig deeper into Darlene’s shady dealings, events unfurl in a way that no one could have predicted, bringing to light the true meaning of loyalty and courage — and the kind of friendship that can create miracles… You and I, Me and You by MaryJanice Davidson This is the final book in Davidson’s laugh-out-loud trilogy featuring an unconventional FBI agent who finds love in the most unexpected places. Candice (and her sisters) has moved in with Patrick and everything is more than she could have ever dreamed. Except why does the dreamy Dr. Gallo keep popping up unexpectedly in her fantasies? When her pleasantly steady love life suddenly starts looking pretty darn shaky, Candice and her

sisters find themselves kneedeep in a new case that brings the escaped Threefer Killers back onto the scene. The stakes are higher, the danger more real, the hi-jinks more hilarious, and the love and passion are more delicious in this final book of an unforgettable trilogy.

A Look and Find Book by Cynthia Platt What do you get when you combine Curious George and a ‘Look and Find’ book? Hours of viewing and reading fun, that’s what you get. Each page puts that little monkey in a new setting: a cabin in the woods, a castle, and a tree house are just a few. The text asks the reader to find five items in the picture (they are also pictured for nonreaders) and of course, you have to find George. There is lots of fun waiting between these pages. Lucky Ducklings by Eva Moore In June 2000, five little ducks toppled down a sewer grate while out on a walk with their mother and were rescued by a man with a pick-up truck and several

local firefighters. This is the story of that rescue beautifully written into a picture book for the whole family to enjoy. As the ducks and their babies come back to the canal, spring is the perfect time to enjoy this story of how life often collides with nature. Above Average by Andrew Clements Andrew Clements just seems to know the inner workings of a child’s mind. His other titles like ‘Frindle’ have been popular because of his keen insight into issues kids face. He adds humor and common sense into the mix. In this story, Jordan feels average, average looks, average smarts, average talent, while everyone else seems to be remarkable, beautiful and tremendously talented. So Jordan sets out to become remarkable by the end of school year. She gets that opportunity when a tornado hits her middle school and she leads the children to safety. Shadow by Michael Morpurgo Aman and his mother have beat incredible odds to arrive in England: they have left behind the war in Afghanistan, a murdered father and grandfather, and the cruel treatment of the Taliban. Aman also left behind a little dog named Shadow, who was much more than a loyal friend. Now he and his mother are in danger of being deported and are being held in a crowded prison. Who will come to their defense? Morpurgo is also the author of the best-selling ‘War Horse’. Ripley’s Believe it or Not Sports by Geoff Tibballs Ripley’s Believe it or Not Wild Animals by Camilla de la Bedoyere The Ripley’s folks are famous for hard-to-believe books full of daring photos, unusual (to say the least) people and their unusual deeds. They never seem to disappoint a young reader’s thirst for the bizarre and mind-boggling. In the ‘sports’ title there is the water-skiing squirrel, the man who bends nails with his teeth and ‘cow patty bingo’. In the ‘animals’ title readers will find an African Watusi steer with horns 7 feet across and Dr. Norman Gary, an insect scientist who allows up to 100,000 bees to swarm all over his body. Read to decide if you believe it or not!

4 — The Herald

I am super excited about the sunshine and warmer temperatures we had this week. I am so ready for more. Sadly enough the weatherman is not so obliging. Par for the course, really, we all know when the temperatures rise in the spring, rain is on the way. I’ve still seen a few snow piles here and there. They look really out of place. So does my winter coat. I think I’m just gonna hang it on a back hook so I can’t see it so well. I can’t wait for the day you can throw open the windows and let winter air out of the house. I saw a cute post on Facebook from Jeff Foxworthy on how you might me from Ohio if you’ve had the heat on, air conditioning on and back to heat in the same day. Another one was “you might be from Ohio if 10 degrees is a little chilly.” Make fun of our weather all you want; it will change in a few minutes anyway. So I saw a few things I could take care of outside over the weekend. Not really big things but they would make a big difference and perhaps get me going. Truth be told, I get a little overwhelmed in the spring when so much needs done. I’m just going to put in a little time each day or so that is nice enough to be outside and I bet I can accomplish more than I think I can. I do have to say I love the end result. I despise pulling weeds but I love the look of clean, freshly mulched landscaping. Can’t have one without the other. My knees already ache at the thought of all the work that has to be done on them. I’m not old and I don’t feel old but I’m no spring chicken and I don’t feel like one of those, either. My husband and I have joked that if we could afford it, we would concrete our whole property. The all we’d have to do is hose off the “yard” and we’d be done. I think we would miss all the color and textures, just not the work.

“To be really cosmopolitan, a man must be at home even in his own country.” — Thomas Wentworth Higginson, American clergyman-author (1823-1911)

Spring has sprung. Me too?


I believe in karma. I believe in the difference between right and wrong. I believe in the kindness of strangers. But most of all, I believe in good people. I still believe they exist, even in a world that appears to become more cynical by the day. Despite this, I don’t trust the way I used to. I used to trust so much more openly than I do now. That was until I experienced, as we all have, the painful truth that there are people out there who act one way to your face and another way behind your back. Hypocritical people. I simply have no use for them. I personally think it’s jealously and insecurity that’s responsible for these people acting like friends in person, yet talking badly about you to others when you’re not around. The funniest part to me is, especially with technology, do they think we won’t find out? It’s sad, really. But it’s also not even worth my time often to confront them. They’re obviously not real friends anyway; at least I know that now. The trust is gone. It just hurts to find out. So why is trust so increasingly hard to find in today’s world? In a world in which “connecting” with others is supposedly easier than ever, why is forming a real, genuine, honest relationship so seemingly challenging? I just think with the more ways we have to connect, the less special the connections can

dates to purchase homes. That’s why I have introduced bipartisan legislation, the Prompt Notification of Short Sale Act, to improve the process for buyers considering a short sale. First, the legislation would achieve creating greater accountability for the loan servicer and improved communication between the buyer and loan servicer by requiring a written response of an acceptance, rejection, counter offer, or extension within 30 days of the homeowner’s request. Last year, I met with a group of Ohio community bankers who said they could make a decision on a short sale in less than an hour. What a million-dollar community bank in Ohio can do in 30 minutes we’re asking multi-billion dollar banks to do in 30 days. And it would help to bolster our housing market and our economy by providing homebuyers with certainty and assurance by giving them a final date at which they can close the transaction, or move on. This common-sense legislation would help prospective home buyers – and distressed homeowners alike – while helping to rebuild our neighborhoods and fostering long-term economic growth. This is about stabilizing home values – shoring up our economic future, and standardizing processes that make sense for Ohio families. It’s about ending a waiting game and stopping the delay that represents a dangerous drag on the housing market and our nation’s fiscal health. We cannot afford to wait any longer. Now is the time to stabilize the housing market and stabilize our economy.

A monument to reconciliation
Point of View

sion and disrespect. … They have failed us.” Rainey, a Vietnam vet, attorney and Republican activist, who once marched to protest the Confederate battle flag atop the state’s capitol dome, has the bona fides to speak of Lee’s legacy. A greatgrandson of two Confederate soldiers who surrendered at Appomattox, he also is kin to a signer of the South Carolina Ordinance of Secession. Who better to lead the charge for reconciliation than a descendant of those who started this fine mess? What will it take for South Carolina to gain recognition beyond comedians’ punch lines and the state’s benighted, racist past? Let’s see, says Rainey, mentally checking diversity boxes: Gov. Nikki Haley is of Sikh Indian descent. U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, who spoke on behalf of Doby, defeated the sons of Strom Thurmond and former Republican Gov. Carroll Campbell for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Scott is the first African-American senator from the South since Reconstruction. We still have a way to go, but the old Southern stereotypes don’t fit as well as they once did. Reconciliation, like evolution, is a process, not an event. And the band wasn’t just playing “Dixie.” Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.

Over the last few years, I have spoken about various stamp designs used by the US Postal Service. Commemorative stamps are exactly what their name implies – they are designed to commemorate an important person, place or thing. With the advent of personal computers and printers that can print the minutest detail, individuals have been able to design their own postage stamps. Zazzle.com is a place to go to upload your individual designs or to find designs that have already been done for someone else. These designs are not copyright protected so you can request for Zazzle to print yours or a previously uploaded design. You wouldn’t believe what you might find. When I was working for the post office, I couldn’t count the times I heard, “What do you have in a pretty stamp?” You don’t have to wait for the Advisory Committee to recommend production of your favorite image; just think of the possibilities. On the Zazzle site you will find Baby Shower stamps, Wedding Invitation stamps, RSVP stamps or Save The Date stamps. They even had a section of Easter stamps and Jewish stamps (what a hoot). One series of stamps that I found on the site was concerning parts of Colonial Williamsburg. There are numerous designs available- from the formal gardens of the Governor’s Palace to the quaint scene of a colonial farmhouse. So why am I talking about stamps of Williamsburg, VA? I am glad you asked. On Sept. 28, 2013, MPH Tours will be leading a six day – five night trip to Colonial Williamsburg. This trip will have everything history, art, musical presentations, greyhound racing, a casino, and fine dining. If you are 62 years of age or older, we will also arrange for you to receive a Lifetime Pass for free entrance to our National Parks system. But let me get to the details of the trip We will leave Delphos early on Saturday morning. As we travel through Wheeling WV on our way to the beautiful Skyline Drive along the ridge of the Shenandoah National Park we’ll stop at Wheeling Island for lunch, a chance to try a game or two of chance, and maybe some racing. The next part of our trip will be as we travel down one of

the most spectacular views of Fall foliage. We will be staying in a hotel that faces out onto the mountains. If time permits we’ll take a peek into the P. Buckley Moss Museum. With any luck the artist might be there since her studio is just a couple of miles away. Dinner and a relaxing walk afterwards should round out the evening. The next morning, we will head to the Monticello Visitor’s Center and then on to the mansion and grounds built by Thomas Jefferson. We’ll stroll the grounds and then head to the famous Michie Tavern for a fine Southern Hospitality meal. The Inn was built in the late 1700s and offers some of the finest food in the area. Then it is off to Williamsburg, the colonial city of many our forefathers. We’ll check into our suites and take an orientation ride around the outskirts of this colonial city. Monday morning, we’ll start at the visitor’s center just a mile from our hotel. Enjoy a movie featuring Jack Lord that sets the stage for the time of the Revolution.

BY JOE KAY The Associated Press CINCINNATI — Forget about it. That’s the only thing the Nationals could do after absorbing their worst loss since they returned to Washington in 2005. The Cincinnati Reds hit six homers — two each by Todd Frazier and Zack Cozart and a pinch grand slam by Xavier Paul — while pulling away to a 15-0 win on Friday night. The Nationals swept their opening series against Miami while allowing only one run. The last team without a loss in the majors went down hard. It was the Nationals’ most lopsided loss since baseball returned to Washington in 2005, topping a 15-1 defeat to Detroit on June 19, 2007, according to

Indians’ bats silenced by Moore
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Cleveland Indians’ bats were silenced by Matt Moore and the Tampa Bay bullpen. Moore pitched six sharp innings and Ben Zobrist drove in three runs to lead the Rays over the Indians 4-0 on Friday night. Moore (1-0) limited the Indians to a pair of hits by Michael Bourn, walked two and struck out eight. The 23-year-old left-hander retired his final eight batters and came out after 100 pitches. Tampa Bay pitchers retired the final 17 Cleveland hitters. Zobrist, who has driven in a team-leading seven runs in four games, did most of the damage against Zach McAllister (0-1) with a pair of doubles. Bourn reached on an infield single in the first and doubled into the left-field corner in the third. Only two other runners reached base against Moore, who walked Mike Aviles in the third and Michael Brantley in the fourth. Jake McGee and Brandon Gomes each worked a perfect inning for the Rays. Joel Peralta finished the two-hitter with a 1-2-3 ninth. The Indians, who were 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position, struck out 11 times and didn’t have a baserunner after the fourth inning. Two of Tampa Bay’s four runs off McAllister were unearned. Cleveland’s starter

STATS LLC. The Reds connected every which way, piling up three solo homers, a two-run shot, a threerun shot and Paul’s first career grand slam. The series matches the NL’s top two teams from last season. Washington led with 98 wins, followed by the Reds with 97. The teams have a history of close games — four of their last eight had gone to extra-innings. This one quickly turned into a rout in one of the majors’ most homer-friendly ballparks. The Reds had 19 hits, including a single by reliever Manny Parra, and finished with more homers than the Nationals had hits (5). It started with Haren (0-1), who signed a one-year, $13 million deal in the offseason

to join a formidable pitching staff. Cincinnati finished with its most lopsided shutout win since a 17-0 victory over Milwaukee at Cinergy Field on Aug. 7, 1998. Homer Bailey (1-0) gave up two hits in six scoreless innings. The right-hander hasn’t allowed a run in his last 19 regular-season innings, a streak that includes his no-hitter in Pittsburgh on Sept. 28. He gave up a run during the playoffs. Bailey even got a double. Frazier hit a solo shot into the upper deck in the second inning. On the next pitch, Cozart broke his 0-for-11 slump to start the season with a homer that a fan caught at the top of the wall in left field. Johnson talked to the umpires about fan interference, but they declined

to review it and stuck with the call. It would be that kind of a night for the Nationals. Cozart hit a three-run homer off Haren in the third, giving him two homers in three pitches from the right-hander. It was his first career multihomer game. Shin-Soo Choo added a solo homer in the fourth that barely cleared the wall in center as a fan reached to catch it. Johnson asked for a review of that one and got it. Three minutes, 39 seconds later, the umpires upheld their call. Cozart got his career-high fifth RBI on a sacrifice fly. Frazier added a two-run homer in the seventh, his third in two games. Paul’s pinch-hit grand slam off Henry Rodriguez made it 14-0.

allowed six hits, walked none and struck out three over six innings. Sam Fuld led off the Tampa Bay fourth with a single and scored on Zobrist’s double down the right-field line. Yunel Escobar drove in Zobrist from third with a grounder to short to make it 2-0. A two-out fielding error by Aviles at third opened the door for the Rays to add two more runs on Zobrist’s fifth-inning double.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report CENTRAL OHIO Alum Creek Lake (Delaware County) - Saugeye is an early favorite; try fishing minnow-imitating crankbaits along the dam and causeways at dawn and dusk. After a water release, fish the spillway with jigs for saugeye. For crappie, try jigging off deep points that have stumps and in the northern basin of the lake around fallen trees in the creek channel. Crappies are staging in deep water close to spawning sites; these must be 9 inches or longer to harvest. Channel catfish can be found in the north end of the reservoir feeding on dead shad. Indian Lake (Logan County) - Saugeye and crappie are the two most active fish right now in this 5,040-acre lake northwest of Columbus. Saugeye are being taken with blade baits and jigs tipped with minnows in deep water; fish the Old Indian Lake area, south of Dream Bridge and Moundwood areas. The riprap along Southbank is also worth a try. Crappies are being caught using jigs or jigs and minnows around woody structures and boat docks. As water warms crappie will move toward shallower water. NORTHWEST OHIO Sandusky River (Sandusky County) - The river level is low right now; however, fishing has been good. Most anglers use a floating jig-head fished on an 18- to 24-inch leader with a 1/4- to 1/2-oz. weight depending on the water current. Anglers seem to have the best success tipping the jig-head with a twister tail of white or chartreuse color; the best area to try is around the Miles Newton Bridge. The daily bag limit is 4 fish. Do NOT keep any walleye shorter than 15 inches; please take a ruler with you. Maumee River (Lucas County) Walleye fishing is good to excellent with a fair number of limits being caught; anglers are catching good numbers of large fish. Most anglers use a floating jig-head fished on an 18- to 24-inch leader with a 1/4- to 1/2-oz. weight depending on the water current; anglers seem to have

the best success tipping the jig-head with a twister tail of white or chartreuse color. Fish are being caught in all areas but the most productive area is between Orleans Park and Ft. Meigs. The daily bag limit is 4 fish. Do NOT keep any walleye shorter than 15 inches; please take a ruler with you. NORTHEAST OHIO Northeast Ohio - The word on the lakes in Northeast Ohio is that the crappie bite is starting to pick up; springtime has always been good time for producing slabs of crappie. Lakes that have reported average to above average crappie action are Mosquito Creek Lake (Trumbull County) and the Portage Lakes, including Nimisila Reservoir (Summit County). Crappies should continue to move in shallower, holding tight to any type of structure. They can be caught on the usual crappie gear: crappie tubes, twister tails and minnows under bobbers. Little Turtle Pond (Summit County) - Part of Metro Parks, serving Summit County, a youth trout derby will be held here on April 13. Anglers 15 and younger are invited to take part in this youth-only fishing derby from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Little Turtle Pond will be stocked with rainbow trout ranging from 10-13 inches; popular trout baits include maggots, wax and red worms, trout dough baits and spinners. Minnows are not permitted to be used here. Punderson Lake (Geauga County) - Another great youth opportunity takes place here on April 13. Anglers age 5-15 are invited to take part in this youth-only fishing event from 8 a.m.-noon. Pre-registration is required; please call (440) 5642279. Rainbow trout ranging from 10-13 inches will be stocked here. Popular trout baits include maggots, wax and red worms, trout dough baits, minnows and spinners. SOUTHEAST OHIO Burr Oak Lake (Morgan/Athens counties) - Anglers will start to reel in crappies and largemouth bass in this 628-acre lake. Fish management staff has regularly placed fish attractors throughout this lake; to obtain a map of structure locations, contact the Wildlife District Four office at (740) 589-9930.

using minnows or twisters tipped with minnows; for largemouth bass, try throwing jigs-and-pigs or spinner baits. Tycoon Lake (Gallia County) - Early-season crappie fishing is always popular in this 204-acre lake; try fishing with minnows or white or chartreuse twister tails in 2- to 8-foot depths near brush piles, stickups or old submerged fence rows. Tycoon is also a favorite bass fishing destination. Jig-and-pig combos have been typical early-spring successful bait while fished along the old fence rows or among the many subsurface stumps. Note that there is a change in the bass regulations here for 2013; there is a 3-fish split daily limit, with two fish less than 14 inches and one fish greater than or equal to 20 inches. SOUTHWEST OHIO Rocky Fork Lake (Highland County) - The lake will be stocked with trout today. Trout have been stocked in a blocked-off bay at the campground marina for a youthfishing event which has excellent shoreline fishing access; try using small spinners or jigs tipped with wax worms. The daily catch limit is 5 trout per angler. Clark Lake (Clark County) Stocked with trout on March 28th. Try using small spinners or jigs tipped with wax worms; the daily catch limit is 5 trout per angler. Paint Creek Lake (Highland County) - While fishing below the tail water, take advantage of higher flows and discharges below the dam for good catches of saugeye; try using small jigs with twister tails tipped with nightcrawlers or minnows. Improving crappie catches are occurring near the campground. OHIO RIVER Racine Dam Tailwater - Anglers searching for sauger are generally successful this time of year. Try fishing twister tails on jig-heads near the bottom; bright colors work the best. Early-morning hours are best when fishing live minnows on the bottom. Hybrid striped bass can also be found. White twister tails and grubs are always popular; try fishing 100 to 200 yards downstream from the dam along the riprap. LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember:

The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie through April 30 is 4 fish per angler with a 15-inch minimum size limit. … The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. … The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler; minimum size limit is 12 inches. … The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler with a 14-inch minimum size limit. Walleye have been caught by trolling crankbaits near “F” can of the Camp Perry firing range and also around Green Island. Rapala deep husky jerks have been the most consistent crankbait; jigging has been slow as the cold water has delayed spawning activity. Use caution when boating in cold water. Maumee River (Temp: 48 °F): The water level is very low; water clarity is good. Bluegrass Island is accessible at this time. Fishing effort is high. … Walleye fishing is good with limits being caught. Most anglers use a floating jig-head fished on an 18- to 24-inch leader with a 1/4- to 1/2-oz. weight depending on the water current; anglers seem to have the best success tipping the jig-head with a twister tail of white or chartreuse color. Fish are being caught in all areas but the most productive area is Fort Meigs but Orleans Park is also producing good numbers of fish. … The walleye run is getting better with a lot of fish in the river, including a lot of large females. Water temperatures should continue to increase. Possibility of rain this weekend could help push the run to its peak next week. … Do NOT keep any walleye shorter than 15 inches; please take a ruler with you. Sandusky River (Temp: 48 °F): Water level is very low; water clarity is good. Fishing effort: medium to high. … Walleye fishing is very good to excellent; anglers are catching a lot of limits with good numbers of large fish. The bite is picking up and the run may be nearing the peak; the best area to try is around the Rodger Young and Walsh Park. Most anglers use a floating jig head fished on an 18- to

By NOAH TRISTER The Associated Press ATLANTA — Christian Laettner will occasionally see a replay of his famous buzzer beater against Kentucky — and he tries not to look too excited about it. “If I’m in a bar or restaurant and there’s people around kind of seeing how I react to it, I’ll purposely not look at it, so they don’t run around saying, ‘Laettner loved to watch himself on TV’,” Laettner said. “But if I’m in the privacy of my home with my family, I know it’s coming on, I’ll definitely take a peek at it.” Laettner’s shot that gave Duke an overtime win in a 1992 regional final was picked as the top moment from March Madness, part of a celebration of the NCAA tournament’s 75th anniversary. Indiana’s undefeated team from 1976 was also honored Friday, along with 15 of the tournament’s greatest players — a group that included Laettner. The best moment and best team were picked by fan vot-

Laettner, ’76 Hoosiers honored
ing. The top players were selected based on votes by fans and NCAA experts. Aside from Laettner, the other 14 players selected were UCLA’s Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Indiana State’s Larry Bird, Princeton’s Bill Bradley, Georgetown’s Patrick Ewing, Duke’s Grant Hill, Michigan State’s Magic Johnson, North Carolina’s Michael Jordan, Ohio State’s Jerry Lucas, Kansas’ Danny Manning, Houston’s Hakeem Olajuwon, Cincinnati’s Oscar Robertson, San Francisco’s Bill Russell, UCLA’s Bill Walton and West Virginia’s Jerry West. Manning, Robertson and Walton were on hand for Friday’s news conference, along with Laettner. “It’s great to be here with these remarkable players and the explosion of what’s come to be,” Walton said. “To me, that’s the most fun part, is to see the growth. Everybody coming together, to watch these remarkable players, to just be a small part of it, I’m the luckiest guy in the world.” Laettner won two national championships at Duke — and he actually thanked Manning, who led Kansas to the 1988 title. Duke was also in the Final Four in ‘88 and Laettner said he might not have gone there the following season if the Blue Devils were already coming off a national championship. “I want to thank Danny for not letting Duke win in 1988 because if Duke won in 1988, I might not have signed with Duke,” Laettner said. “Since they did not win that year, I said to myself, ‘They haven’t been to the pinnacle yet, I want to be on the team when they get there’.” Coach Bob Knight and seven players from Indiana’s 1976 team reflected on the Hoosiers’ undefeated season, which hasn’t been repeated by anyone since. “They were all good students; all graduated right on time. I do think they had a strong feel for one another,” Knight said. “I think that carried into a great desire to do something unusual,

The Herald — 7

By JENNA FRYER The Associated Press HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — If it was up to him, Denny Hamlin’s fractured vertebra in his lower back would not cause him to miss any races. “I can get in my car right now and go; I feel like I can get in my car right now and win Martinsville,” Hamlin said. But he can’t race this weekend at Martinsville. He’ll be watching from pit road as Mark Martin drives his car and that might be the most painful part of the injury that has sidelined Hamlin for the first time in his career. “I think I’m over the physical part of this; now I just have to get over the mental part of it,” he said. “I’m going to feel fine the next four to five weeks. You have to look at the bigger picture. It’s tough for me to swallow that now. I have to make sure I’m able to sustain another hit.” Hamlin was injured in a crash on the last lap of the March 24 race at California while racing with Joey Logano for the win. Doctors have told him he should expect to miss at least five races but Hamlin is personally targeting the April 27 race at home track Richmond for his return. Nobody has told him he can race at Richmond, where he hosts his annual charity race but nobody has told him

Denny Hamlin hoping for early recovery
it’s impossible. Same thing for his championship chances his season. His Joe Gibbs Racing team was devastated after the accident, certain the title hopes for the No. 11 Toyota were finished. But when they did the math it became clear that Hamlin could miss five races and technically still find a way to qualify for the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship. So Hamlin is ruling nothing out right now about a comeback. “It’s not going to be easy,” he said. “I’d like to cross that bridge when I get there. I don’t want the chance at a championship to decide when I get back in the car. I want to do it when it’s most safe. I want to do it when everyone, doctors, me, etc., are comfortable with me getting back in the car, not just because ‘If we don’t get in this week then our season is done’.” Wearing a brace under his shirt, Hamlin struggled at times to breathe while speaking to a small group of reporters at Joe Gibbs Racing in his first extended interview since the accident. His girlfriend, Jordan, stopped by with their 2-month-old daughter, Taylor James, and his mother, Mary Lou. Turns out he has a heart murmur; doctors discovered it after the accident and believe it’s hereditary. Hamlin touched on how the lone upside in his injury is the time he now has to spend with his new baby. But fatherhood has put this incident into perspective and forced Hamlin to consider this injury could have been much, much worse. “I’m thankful that my spine fractured where it did … if it would have shifted and hit my spinal cord then you have paralysis and that’s real,” he explained. “I got really upset in the hospital in California when they told me what it was. I was in so much pain, I thought it was never-ending pain that was never going away. I felt that maybe I was done forever.” It’s not clear if things ever will be right with Logano, his former teammate. Hamlin made it clear he does not blame Logano for his injury but holds him responsible for the incident. “The injury was circumstantial. A wreck on a 2-mile speedway, you risk getting hurt,” Hamlin continued. “That frustrates me the most. Listening to him say, ‘I’m sure Denny’s fine, these cars are safe.’ That really gets to me because he’s taking for granted no matter how hard you wreck, you’re going to be fine. “That’s why people don’t wreck each other intentionally on big racetracks. … He was being very care-

which is what they did. I don’t think the year before we really went after an undefeated season quite like we did with these guys. They really got into it.” Scott May, who scored 26 points in Indiana’s win over Michigan for the national title, was asked if another team might someday go unbeaten. “I think so,” May replied. “I think somebody will recruit a class that will come in and stay and play together for a few years. I think it definitely will happen again.” The famously explosive Knight has not spoken out about Rutgers coach Mike Rice, who was dismissed this week after a video went public showing him shoving, grabbing and throwing balls at players. Knight has declined comment through an ESPN spokesman and he and the Indiana alumni spoke only about their title on the podium Friday. Knight would not stop and talk with reporters who gathered offstage at the end of the event.

24-inch leader with a 1/4- to 1/2-oz. weight depending on the water current; anglers seem to have the best success tipping the jig head with a twister tail of white or chartreuse color. … Do NOT keep any walleye shorter than 15 inches; please take a ruler with you. Reminders: Black bass are protected by a 14-inch minimum length limit at all times. … Walleye have a 15-inch minimum size limit for the entire season. Walleye daily bag limit is 4 through April 30. Daily bag limits for walleye will be set on May 1 of each year. A special publication announcing the new daily limits for walleye will be available at Wildlife District offices, the web site and license outlets. Steelhead: Mainstem rivers and tribs have moderate to high flows and are receding; streams in the west are in better shape, as eastern streams have been dealing with snowmelt that has increased flows. Fishing conditions will be best in smaller tribs and western rivers first, then in main streams (east) mid- to late-week. Fresh steelhead are welldistributed throughout the stream reaches; there are several reports of large fish being caught - up to 17 pounds - in the last few weeks. Spinfishing anglers were using eggs, jigs tipped with maggots, or minnows; fly fishers were using streamers, egg patterns including sucker spawn, woolly buggers and other nymphs. Vermilion River: Fish from the Vermilion boat ramp up to Birmingham. Rocky River: Fish from the Metroparks marina to the dam above the Cedar Point Road pools. Cuyahoga River: Fish in Cleveland Harbor, at the SR 82 dam (but not immediately downstream because of the bald eagle nest) and up to Edison Gorge Dam. Chagrin River: Fish from the soccer fields upstream to the South Chagrin Reservation metropark. Grand River: Fish from the Fairport breakwall up to Harpersfield Dam.

less and not caring about any repercussions and taking for granted how safe the cars have been over the years.” And Hamlin is adamant the accident was intentional. “How is it not intentional? It’s not like he got loose because I took air off him,” Hamlin said. “I saw him getting closer and I moved up the track. He was just going to keep going until he ran into us. Whatever happened after that, I’m sure he didn’t mean to wreck or get me hurt but he meant to run into us, there’s no doubt. He didn’t get loose with the back. He drove into us with the front. That’s a guy seeing I was going to get the better of him that week. He wasn’t going to let that happen. He hit the gas until he hit something.” Hamlin and Logano have been feuding since the closing laps of the seasonopening Daytona 500, when Hamlin accused Logano of clogging up traffic. The two then tangled at Bristol, with Hamlin dumping Logano and Logano angrily confronting him after the race. Hamlin doesn’t mind that NASCAR declined to penalize Logano or Tony Stewart, who confronted Logano on pit road after California for blocking him on the final restart, adding the closing laps of the race were similar to the 1979 Daytona 500 and the drivers will mete out their own justice on the track.

river mouth up through Indian Trails Park. Conneaut Creek: Fish from the river mouth up to the state line. How to catch ’em: Typical setups are long (7-10’), limber, spinning or fly rods with light line (4-to 8-lb. test). Common lures in the spring include small (1/16- to 1/80oz.) marabou or synthetic hair jigs tipped with maggots rigged with split shot under a light pencil-thin bobber. Spoons (Little Cleo, KO Wobblers) and spinners (Rooster Tails, Vibrax, etc.) are commonly used on piers, beaches and lower stream reaches. Flyfishers (using 6-9 wt. rods and weight-forward lines) prefer larger, weighted fly patterns, such as nymphs and streamers like woolly buggers, princes, eggsucking leeches, stonefly and shiner patterns and clouser minnows. Egg fly patterns (single or cluster, sucker spawn, etc.) work well as a single fly or in tandem with a nymph or streamer once the fish move upstream. Salmon or trout eggs are fished as either individual eggs or grouped together in mesh “spawn bags” about the size of a dime or nickel. Eggs can be bounced along the bottom with the current or fished at or near the bottom suspended under a bobber. The fish will move into cuts or gravel runs as they make their way upstream for spawning. As stream temperatures warm during the spring, expect fish to be more likely to chase flies, lures or bait and to be found in riffles and runs; then in mid-April to mid-May, they move back downstream and into Lake Erie for the summer. The water temperature is 39 degrees off of Toledo and 36 degrees off of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast. … Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating. ——Boaters should be ready for new season Ohio law requires boaters born on or after January 1, 1982, to successfully complete either a boating course or a proficiency exam in order to operate a boat powered by more than 10 horsepower.

The boating course must be approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) and the proficiency exam must be approved by the ODNR Division of Watercraft. The law applies to any operator AND any supervising adult who was born on or after January 1, 1982. The education law does not change operator age laws. For PWC (Personal Watercraft, known by the common trade names of Ski-Doo, Waverunner, SeaDoo, etc.): Children under 12 may not operate PWC, not even with an education certificate. Children 12-15 can operate PWC as long as they are under the direct supervision of an adult (18 or older) who is onboard AND as long as the child AND the supervising adult (if born on or after January 1, 1982) have education certificates. Children 16 or older can operate PWC as long as they have an education certificate. Adult supervision is not required. For Powerboats (besides PWC) greater than 10 HP: Children under 12 can operate any other type of powerboat greater than 10 HP as long as they are under the direct supervision of an adult (18 or older) who is onboard AND as long as the child AND the supervising adult (if born on or after January 1, 1982) have education certificates. Children 12 and over may operate any other type of powerboat greater than 10 HP as long as they have an education certificate. Adult supervision is not required. Any NASBLA-approved boating education course is fine. Currently, that includes courses offered by the ODNR Division of Watercraft, the US Power Squadron and the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. It also includes some online courses and the ODNR Division of Watercraft Home Study Course. Be wary that some online course certificates are not accepted by other states. The course certificate you get from US Power Squadron, US Coast Guard Auxiliary and Ohio Boater Education Course (classroom or online) are accepted in every surrounding state.

72 hours to produce proof of education. When stopped by a law enforcement officer on Ohio waters, a certificate of completion of either an approved course or proficiency test must be provided not later than 72 hours after being stopped. Proof that the person holds such a certificate may also be provided within the 72-hour period instead of the actual certificate. Failure of the person to present the certificate or proof of holding a certificate within the 72-hour period is prima-facie evidence of a violation. Options for learning. You can meet Ohio’s Boater Education requirement by taking and passing an approved boating education course (classroom, online, or home study), or by taking and passing a proficiency exam. A number of NASBLAapproved classroom courses are available in Ohio. Classroom courses are a minimum of 8 hours of classroom teaching. Some are scheduled all in one day (typically Saturdays); some are stretched out over a number of weeks (usually in the evening). Both US Power Squadron and US Coast Guard Auxiliary also offer a longer course that includes more than the required minimum information. These longer courses also fulfill Ohio’s education requirement. Most instructors use a variety of audio-visual teaching aids. Classes are geared to average learning ability (typically 5th-grade reading level). Some instructors require an adult to be present in the classroom for children under a certain age. Ask when you register what the age requirements are and if the class is suitable for your child. All of the NASBLA-approved classroom courses listed in our Boating Course Search are open to the public. You may find that more classes are scheduled in the spring and the fall when volunteer instructors are not out boating and officers are not out patrolling. Cost varies, usually from $5-$45 based on which class is being taught, materials, room fees, etc.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, APRIL 7, 2013 Small things will have a way of adding up during coming months. You will make great strides in gradual increments, and it will help to be patient. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Unless you’re extremely careful, you could accidentally spill the beans about something that you promised to keep secret. Don’t open your mouth without thinking. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There is someone who is anxious to talk to you about a matter that you’ve been equally as anxious to discuss. Be ready, because the perfect moment to do so might present itself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Generally, the race belongs to the smart and not necessarily to the strong or swift. If you want to outdistance a competitor, you had better be able to outthink him or her. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Everything will work out well if you treat events philosophically, especially anything that tends to produce adverse conditions. Losing won’t be that bad, but winning is great. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Keep in mind that even a small profit is better than none at all. Don’t expect more than you deserve, and you won’t be disappointed with what you earn. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Forgo making an important decision if you feel you haven’t had adequate time to properly study the alternatives. It’s much better to be indecisive now than to be sorry later. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Techniques used in your job or daily life can be improved upon. Start giving some thought about ways to do things better. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You’ll be a fun person to hang out with, because you’re not apt to take yourself or life too seriously. This positive attitude will be contagious. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If there is a business matter that you’d like to close, let your instincts govern the timing. Proceed to wrap things up only after you see that everyone’s happy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t discount any bright ideas that come out of the blue, but don’t be too quick to act on them either. Some should be filed away for later use. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You might be able to save more money on a purchase than what you’ll get from something you sell. Don’t be too picky about how you make your profit. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -In situations where you have the right to ask for cooperation from others, people will be more responsive if you make requests instead of demands. MONDAY, APRIL 8, 2013 Based upon a recent experience, your attitude is likely to undergo a positive revision in the year ahead. This new dynamic outlook will enable you to emphasize the personal qualities that serve you best. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It isn’t likely that you’ll tolerate anything that inhibits your mobility and independence. Loose chitchat poses a distraction you will find especially annoying. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You’ll be more self-assured at the onset of an undertaking than you will be as matters progress. Don’t allow self-doubts to distort your positive outlook. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It’s OK if your instincts urge you to take on more than is expected of you, as long as you don’t step on anyone’s toes in the process. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -The possibilities for you achieving all of your objectives today look to be pretty good, as long as you make a game plan first and don’t try to alter them along the way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The secret to achieving what you want is to not put any limitations on your thinking. You need to be free to use the entire scope of your smarts and imagination. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The perceptions of some of your associates might be keener than yours. Just because you fail to see as they do, don’t belittle their hunches. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Someone you like might require extra compassion. Don’t try to reach this person through reason; he or she needs emotional help, not logic. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -One of the worst things you can do at this point is goof off. If you fail to keep up with your responsibilities, a hard rain is going to fall. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- There are times when it is wise to allow your heart to rule your head, and this might be one of them. Make a point to go out of your way to be nice to someone who needs some kindness. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- This can be a very productive day if you dedicate yourself to your undertakings. Make it a rule not to begin anything you have no intention of completing in a timely fashion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you go out gallivanting, leave word as to how you can be reached. Someone is going to be very anxious to get in touch with you, and you won’t want to miss him or her. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -When dickering over a commercial matter, you should be firm about your terms. It will cost you both money and the advantage if you let yourself seem weak.

Burren, a great rock area of 100 square miles. I’ll never forget Galway. We stopped at a mall to eat. There were a half dozen of us who ate together. We had potato soup, which was excellent. Cookie asked the waiter “where are the restrooms?” The waiter gave him some very extensive directions. Cookie just said, “follow me.” We followed him down a long hallway, through some double doors and up some narrow stairs. Cookie was so intent on leading us the right way that he didn’t see the WET PAINT sign on the bright green wall. He led us up the stairs, opened the door for us and in doing so, he leaned against the wet painted wall. The bright green really stood out on the back of his light tan jacket. We tried desperately to get it off with whatever we find, to no avail. When Mural on the side of a building in the old town side of Londonderry, a city divided by could we got back to the bus, the strife. Murals like this one were painted to encourage the population to get along and other travelers said, “We can see accept differences. which farmer you belong to.” We stopped at the Belleek Parian China factory. The china is white with green shamrocks all over. We bought some small vases for remembrances. The Bendeles bought some picture frames. Londonderry is a city of 105,000. It is very much a city in strife. There is a 500 foot wall separating the bogside and the old city. One side is on the mountain, the other side is the valley. Between the two is a sidewalk with a high iron fence. There were large murals on the sides of buildings urging people to get along. We walked the sidewalk on the mountain side. We walked into the city building and saw a statue which was full of bullet holes. Driving through the city, I saw a statue of Molly Malone pushing a wheelbarrow full of cockles and mussels. It too had bullet holes. I was thrilled because of the song about Molly Malone. It was peaceful when we were in the city. Dunluce Castle in Northern Ireland.

BY HOLBROOK MOHR and JEFF AMY JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The police detective killed while interrogating a murder suspect at department headquarters in Mississippi’s capital city was shot four times before the suspect shot himself in the head, authorities said Friday. Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart told The Associated Press that Jackson Police Detective Eric Smith was shot twice in the chest and twice in the arm with a 9 mm pistol. Jeremy Powell, 23, wrested Smith’s gun away while he was being questioned, shot the detective, then himself, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Warren Strain said Friday. Jackson authorities said the shooting happened in a third-floor interrogation room while Smith was seeking information on a stab-

bing death earlier this week. Powell had one gunshot to the head, the coroner said. Smith, 40, had been with the police department nearly 20 years and was assigned to the Robbery-Homicide Division. The physically fit Smith was praised for his work leading numerous high-profile murder investigations, officials said. Ken Winter, executive director of the Mississippi Association of Chiefs of Police, said it’s not usual for an officer to be armed during an interview unless it’s being conducted in a secure area, like a jail. Jails typically require all visitors to check their weapons, including law enforcement officers. But it is rare for an officer to be killed inside a police department, Winter said. He said he couldn’t recall such an instance in recent years in Mississippi.

Answers to Friday’s questions: Six U.S. flags were planted on the lunar surface by Apollo astronauts. Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17 each left a flag on the moon. Superstitious sailors of yore carried aquamarine to ensure safe passage at sea.

Today’s questions: How many years after their first date did David Letterman marry longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko? What trademark-protected English cheese can only be produced in three adjacent countries? Answers in Monday’s Herald.
