Smith described the Lions Club mission and objectives to the small gathering: “Lions Club mission statement, ‘To create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people for humanitarian needs by providing voluntary services through community involvement and international cooperation,’ hasn’t changed since Melvin Jones started the club in 1917,” Smith said. Objectives of the club include sight-related projects like eyeglass recycling, eye banks, eye and health screenings, glasses for school children and SightFirst, which builds hospitals and offers cataract surgeries. Lions members can be found in 46,000 clubs in 200 countries and geographic locations around the world. Smith stressed that the club in Delphos can choose its own Future Delphos Lions Club member Erin Macwhinney, left, listens to Lion Jerry Smith as he explains how local clubs can choose their own projects during the first meeting to endeavors. “Club projects are determined by members based on the gauge interest in reviving a local club.

Image leads to hunt for Boston bombing suspect
By DENISE LAVOIE and RODRIQUE NGOWI The Associated Press BOSTON — The painstaking work to identify a bombing suspect from reams of Boston Marathon footage yielded a possible breakthrough as investigators focused on a man seen dropping off a bag, and then walking away from the site of the second of two deadly explosions. The discovery of the image — found on surveillance footage from a department store near the finish line — was detailed by a city politician two days after the attack that left three people dead, wounded more than 170, and cast a dark shadow over one of this city’s most joyous traditions. The footage hasn’t been made public. President Barack Obama is planning to attend a service honoring the victims Thursday in Boston, where police were stationed on street corners across downtown and some residents admitted they were nervous moving about in public spaces. People lined up hours ahead of time Thursday morning to get into the city’s Roman Catholic cathedral for the interfaith service. Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick said he shared the frustration that the person or people responsible were still at large, but he said solving the case will not “happen by magic.” “It’s going to happen by doing the careful work that must be done in a thorough investigation,” Patrick said. “That means going through the couple of blocks at the blast scene square inch by square inch and picking up pieces of evidence and following those trails, and that’s going to take some time.” The bombs were crudely fashioned from ordinary kitchen pressure cookers packed with explosives, nails and ball bearings, investigators and others close to the case said. Investigators suspect the devices were then hidden in black duffel bags and left on the ground. As a result, they were looking for images of someone lugging a dark, heavy bag. Investigators had appealed to the public to Save up to $1.81 provide videos and photographs from the race finish line. City Council President Stephen Murphy, who said he was briefed by Boston police, said investigators saw the image of the man dropping selected varieties off a bag and matched the findings with witness

Ohio man shot in dispute over dogs


Atomic bomb re-enactment dropped from OH air show

COLUMBUS (AP) — Witnesses say a man was shot in the foot in a dispute over his dogs being tied outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Columbus. WBNS-TV reports that the man was a regular customer who tied his dogs to a flagpole outside while he ate. Witnesses said that on Wednesday, another man walked by and the dogs barked and lunged at him. The dog’s owner left the restaurant to talk to a man who pointed a gun at the dogs. Witnesses said the man shot the dog owner in the foot and then fled. The man was hospitalized in stable condition. No arrests have been made.

Superman’s 75th puts spotlight on Cleveland roots
By THOMAS J. SHEERAN The Associated Press CLEVELAND — Superman’s 75th anniversary is giving his creators’ bluecollar hometown a renewed chance to claim the superhero as its own. Fans hope today’s anniversary, including lighting city hall with Superman’s colors, will raise the profile of cocreators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The city is making a start with a Superman day proclaimed by the mayor and giving out birthday cake at the airport’s Superman display. The June release of Hollywood’s latest Superman tale, “Man of Steel,” also should renew fan interest. The film offers a fresh start for the kid from Krypton, with Henry Cavill as the boy who falls to Earth and becomes its protector. Siegel and Shuster labored on their creation for years in the throttling grip of the Great Depression before finally selling Superman to a publisher. The Man of Steel became a Depression-era bootstrap strategy for the Siegel/ Shuster team, according to Brad Ricca, a professor at nearby Case Western Reserve University who uses Superman in his classes. “They really just saw it as a way out,” he said. In his upcoming book “Super Boys,” Ricca says the story of Superman’s creation is mostly about their friendship: two boys in the city’s Glenville neighborhood dreaming of “fame, riches and girls” in a time when such dreams are all the easier to imagine because of the crushing economic misery. Ricca said Siegel and Shuster reflected Cleveland’s ethnic mix: both were sons of Jewish immigrants, struggled during the Depression and hustled to make something of themselves. Superman’s first appearance, in Action Comics No. 1, was April 18, 1938. The first and greatest superhero has gone on to appear in nearly 1,000 Action Comics and has evolved with the times, including a 1940s radio serial, a 1950s TV series and as a reliable staple for Hollywood. Pop culture expert Charles Coletta at Bowling Green State University said Superman ranks globally with George Washington and the Super Bowl as American icons. But it wasn’t just hardscrabble circumstances that tempered the Man of Steel, Siegel’s daughter said. Laura Siegel Larson said Cleveland’s public library, comic pages and high school mentors all nurtured her father’s creativity. “The encouragement that he received from his English teachers and the editors at the Glenville High School newspaper and the literary magazine gave my dad a real confidence in his talents,” she said by phone Monday from Los Angeles. She plans to be in Cleveland for the anniversary. The tale of Superman’s first moments begins in Siegel’s bedroom. He once recalled coming up with the idea while looking up at the stars and imaging a powerful hero who looked out for those in distress. Today, Siegel’s home is easy to pick out on a street with a mix of renovated and dilapidated homes: a stylized red Superman “S” adorns the fence and a sign identifies the home as “the house where Superman was born.” And like the Man of Steel, the neighborhood is tough. “You better have ‘S’ on your chest if you come out after dark,” grinned Tommie Jones, 50, helping move furniture several doors away. Hattie Gray, 61, who moved into the home nearly 30 years ago unaware of its history, has gotten used to the parade of Superman fans walking by or knocking, trying to savor a piece of comics lure.

Air show executive director Terry Grevious says the June 22-23 airshow at Dayton International Airport will keep a planned pyrotechnic show but not as an event meant to re-enact the Aug. 6, 1945, bombing of Hiroshima. The Dayton Daily News reports that Dayton art curator Gabriela Pickett started the online petition to object to the “glamorization of destruction.” Grevious said the re-enactment was meant to mark an historic occurrence credited with ending the war and saving many lives that would have been lost had it continued. The air show has done pyrotechnic explosions but has never labeled it an atomic bomb display.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A jury has ruled that a southeastern Ohio hospital and one of its emergency room physicians weren’t negligent in the 2010 death of a college student from bacterial meningitis. The Athens Messenger reports that Joseph Robinson of Cleveland Heights filed the lawsuit following the death of his daughter, Andrea. She was an Ohio University student who sought treatment at O’Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens. The lawsuit, which sought $3 million, alleged that the hospital delivered substandard care. Defense experts testified that Andrea Robinson died because she waited too long to seek treatment. The verdict was returned Wednesday in Columbus following a trial of more than two weeks. A lawsuit filed against the university was on hold pending the outcome of the action against the hospital.

Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame nominations due June 30
Information submitted COLUMBUS – Don’t delay in recognizing a deserving veteran – the deadline is June 30 to submit nominations for the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame. The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame recognizes and honors Ohio veterans who, after their honorable military service, put their skills and abilities to work in their local communities and, by their continued service and positive accomplishments, inspired their fellow citizens. It is important to stress that, other than having served honorably on active duty, details of a nominee’s military accomplishments are not considered for this award. “There are a lot of great Ohio veterans out there who’ve made a real difference to the people in their communities, and we want to be sure that they get the recognition they deserve for what they’ve accomplished following their military service,” said Tom Moe, Director of the Ohio Department of Veterans Services and a 2009 inductee of the Hall. “They’re our neighbors and our friends— the ones who step up and make sure that what needs to be done gets done. Take the time to honor them by sending in their nomination for the Hall of Fame.” The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame was established in 1992 by former Gov. George Voinovich to recognize the post-military achievements of outstanding veterans. Charter members of the Hall’s Class of 1993 included the six Ohio military veterans who were elected President of the United States and all Medal of Honor recipients from Ohio. Honorees of the past 20 years include astronauts,

“I get people all the time, people all the way from Japan, from Australia,” she said. “It’s a great joy to live here.” The top floor, where Siegel went to write, still offers the nighttime view of the sky over Lake Erie that inspired Siegel. Gray has heard the talk about Glenville being tough, but said crime that might merit Superman’s attention can be found anywhere. “The neighborhood is not really bad, it’s just the people are poor. That’s all,” she said. Shuster’s home has been demolished and replaced by another, but the fence has oversized Superman comic book pages displayed. The nearby commercial strip has a state historic marker detailing Superman’s Cleveland roots. But there isn’t an outsized Superman profile in Cleveland like the way the city celebrates its role in music history with the iconic Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Comic store owner Markus Benn thinks hometown fans want to see the Man of Steel rendered in granite. “I don’t understand why Cleveland won’t own up to owning Superman,” he said. “What do I suggest for a Superman statue? He should be downtown, he should have the shield or the eagle, that classic pose where he’s standing up there with the eagle on his arm.” The low Superman profile in Cleveland may be because Siegel and Shuster weren’t self-promoters and sold their rights to Superman so early, according to Mike Olszewski, a longtime Cleveland broadcaster and president of the nonprofit Siegel & Shuster Society. Last year the $412 check that DC Comics wrote in 1938 to acquire Superman and other creative works by Shuster and Siegel sold for $160,000 in an online auction.

E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: My kids just want to play videos games and watch TV all day. Do you have any tips for getting them outside to appreciate nature more? — Sue Levinson, Bowie, MD Getting kids away from computer and TV screens and outside into the fresh air is an increasing challenge for parents everywhere. Researchers have found that U.S. children today spend about half as much time outdoors as their counterparts did 20 years ago. The Kaiser Family Foundation reports that kids aged eight to 18 spend on average more than seven and a half hours a day—or some 53+ hours per week—engaging with socalled entertainment media. Meanwhile, the Children & Nature Network (C&NN), a non-profit founded by writers and educators concerned about “nature deficit disorder,” finds that, in a typical week, only six percent of American kids aged nine to 13 plays outside on their own. According to Richard Louv, a founding board member of C&NN and author of the book, Last Child in the Woods, kids who stay inside too much can suffer from “nature deficit disorder” which can contribute to a range of behavioral problems including attention disorders, depression and declining creativity as well as physical problems like obesity. Louv blames parental paranoia about potential dangers lurking outdoors and restricted access to natural areas— combined with the lure of video games, websites and TV. Of course, one of the keys to getting kids to appreciate nature is for parents to

Herbicide carryover
Strategies article on herbicide carryover (April 12, 2013). After the drought of 2012, herbicide carryover could potentially be a problem in 2013. Herbicides that normally break down from microbial activity could still be around since most degradation occurs in the summer and early fall when the soil is warm and moist. If the soil is too hot or if moisture is limiting, microbial activity declines and then herbicides may carryover. Cold temperatures reduce microbial breakdown of herbicides, so cold winters may increase soil herbicide persistence. While warmer spring temperatures and moisture may help degrade the herbicides, there may not be enough time before the next crop is planted. Due to glyphosate-resistant weeds, many farmers are using older herbicide chemistries with more soil persistence. For example, fomesafen is the active ingredient in Reflex, Flexstar and Prefix and has an average half-life of 100 days (relatively long half-life). Fomesafen includes herbicides like flumioxazin (Valor and others), sulfentrazone (Authority and Spartan products), and saflufenacil (Sharpen and others). These products are degraded by soil microbes so dry or hot summer soils may increase the chance of herbicide carryover and injury to the next crop. Fomesafen (PPO mode of action) is used in soybeans to control many broadleaf weeds and the product label has a 10-month interval before planting corn. If the product was applied in mid to late June 2012; the earli-

Goode, food service director for that district. “It’s a lot of leg work, in a way, and time, but it’s nice to have that,” Goode said about obtaining the local produce. “It’s fresher. It’s picked that day or the day before and it’s brought into the school.” The farm bill also would expand the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program, which serves more than 30,000 low-income seniors in 45 Ohio counties, including Lorain and Erie counties. That program grants coupons to qualifying seniors to spend at participating farmers markets and roadside stands. Brown said he also wants to make it easier for food stamp recipients to spend their money at farmers markets by giving the farmers access to technology necessary to accept electronic benefits. That money goes right back into the local economy, he said, and the bill includes a pilot program to test smart phone technology to accept food stamp benefits at farmers markets. The bill also would create a new crop insurance program for diversified and organic farmers who grow a variety of crops and can’t easily access traditional crop insurance.

est farmers could plant corn with a 10-month interval is mid to late April assuming adequate microbial breakdown. However, with hot or dry weather conditions, the 10 month interval may not be long enough. Carryover symptoms include corn buggy whipping, white leaves (chlorosis), and midvein leaf breakage. If growing conditions are good, corn can usually outgrow the problem, but if the weather is cold and corn is not actively growing, herbicide carryover may reduce corn yields. Corn herbicide carryover may be possible with the ALS herbicides which include imazaquin (Scepter and others), imazethapyr (Pursuit, Lightning and others), and the clorimurons (Canopy, Classic, Cloak, and others). Soybean herbicide carryover may be caused by HPPD herbicides with mesotrione (Callisto) and Auxin herbicides with clopyralid (Curtail, Stinger). So what can farmers do to prevent a problem? First, review each field and see what and when products were used. Look at the label restrictions to see if herbicide carryover may be an issue. Avoid planting early and follow all time restrictions on fields where persistent herbicides were used. Second, avoid stressing plants and try to get the plants off to a fast start so that they can outgrow any potential herbicide carryover problem. Avoid planting in compacted fields or cold wet soils. Third, if a persistent product was used late in the growing season, it may be best to plant the same crop again, rather than risk crop injury.

Geise, offense carry Jays past Musketeers




DELPHOS — Three St. John’s pitchers combined for a 4-hitter and the offense compiled 11 hits to down Fort Jennings 9-2 in nonleague baseball action on a cloudy and chilly Wednesday afternoon at Stadium Park.

Hoersten (2/3, 1 K) and Gage Seffernick (1 IP, 1 BB, 1 K) mopping up for the Blue Jays (3-5). “Curtis threw well today. They didn’t really get a lot off of him,” Jays’ head coach Ryan Warnecke noted. “He kind of took over the game with his strikeouts. We didn’t have to make a lot of plays behind him but we made the ones we had to.” The Musketeers (3-6) got a 5-inning starting performance from southpaw Dylan Van Loo (1-2; 10 hits, 9 runs, 6 earned, 3 BBS, 2 Ks; 87 pitches, 49 strikes)), with Mark Metzger throwing an inning (1 hits, 1 BB, 1 K). “We struck out a lot but that has been typical of what we’ve been doing this year. At the same time, we put the ball in play a lot more than we had been,” Musketeer coach Eric Schwab said. “We aren’t getting the live at-bats that we need to get better at the plate but we’re able to get into the gym and at least work on our form and stay in some kind of rhythm.” Mark Metzger led off the Musketeer first with a single and an out later, moved to second on a grounder by Cody Warnecke. However, he was left there. Geise started the Jays’ half with a shot to left and swiped second. An out hence, Troy Warnecke got aboard on a 2-base error on his pop-up to short center, scoring Geise after another error on the sequence. An out later, T.J. Hoersten slashed a hit to left to plate Warnecke for a 2-0 lead. Zach Finn got a 2-out walk in the top of the second but got caught stealing by catcher Ryan Buescher with Spencer Dray up to bat. Van Loo walked with one down in the third and swiped a base. However, Geise fanned the next two batters. The hosts went up 3-0 in the home half. With one gone, Andrew Metzger slapped a double to deep left-center field and scored as Troy Warnecke followed with a run-scoring 2-bagger to the same spot. The Orange and Black got their only runs in the top of the fourth. Cody Warnecke started it off with a bloop

The host Blue Jays downed the Musketeers 9-2. (Delphos Herald/Tom Morris) to short right field and Bret Clay walked. Alex Vetter singled to right to score Warnecke and put runners on the corners. An out later, Finn bounced out to plate Clay for a 3-2 deficit. The Jays got those back and more in the home half of the fourth. With one gone, Clay Courtney singled down the left-field line and Craig Klausing followed with a grounder into left. An out later, Geise drove a 2-baser to deep left, scoring Courtney and moving Klausing to third. He scored on Andrew Metzger’s slap single into left; an error on the play plated Geise for a 6-2 spread. Jared Hoersten got aboard with a 2-out walk in the Musketeer fifth and swiped second but couldn’t get any farther. The Jays got their final three tallies in their half of the frame. With one down, Jared Hoersten lined a hit to left and Drew Wagner blooped a hit to short right center. A wild pitch moved both runners up. Courtney walked; a wild pitch plated Hoersten and moved Wagner to third as Courtney sped to second. Klausing walked to load the bases and Ben Wrasman followed with a run-scoring free pass, bringing Wagner home for an 8-2 edge. Geise flied out to center to get Courtney to touch the dish for the final 9-2 edge. Vetter got aboard with a 1-out nibbler in the Musketeer sixth and an error allowed him to go to second, finishing Geise (for T.J. Hoersten). The reliever retired the only two batters he faced. Buescher slapped a 1-out triple down the right-field line off Mark Metzger, eluding a valiant effort by Finn. An out later, pinch-hitter Aaron Beck walked but Courtney grounded out to end the threat. Pinch-hitter led off the Fort Jennings seventh with a free pass against Seffernick and moved up on a wild pitch. Mark Metzger got aboard on a 2-base throwing error, putting Bankey at third. Jared Hoersten was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Cody Warnecke grounded out to first and Wagner threw home to nab Bankey trying to score to end the game. “Today was the first game of this year where I can say we put it all together,” Coach Warnecke added. “We had hit the ball well most of the year but not consistently; we hit the ball well for all seven innings today. We made a couple of errors but they weren’t costly; we didn’t let them add up. Again, we just need to keep playing.” Schwab agreed. “We need to get playing time at the plate, on defense and on the mound. We haven’t had it consistently,” Schwab added. “Our errors are things we’ve struggled with but we actually improved from how we have been playing there. We got better today.” St. John’s visits Ottoville 5 p.m. today; Jennings hosts Kalida at the same today (both weather permitting).

If we’re learning anything as the years pass, it’s how the world of “reality” invades the world of sports. That reality invaded the inner sanctum of sports again Monday at the Boston Marathon. That race may not be the Super Bowl or March Madness but in its own way, it is a revered part of America. It celebrates Patriots’ Day, a civic holiday in Massachusetts that commemorates the anniversary of the battles of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775 — the first battles of the Revolutionary War; the Red Sox start their game that day at 11 a.m. as part of the festivities, which are always on the third Monday of April. I will let the authorities sort out who is or is not responsible — though some of the “theories” make you wonder what these purveyors have been … “ingesting”. Needless to say, it is a tragedy: lives are lost, families are crushed and those that survive must begin the long process of rebuilding their shattered bodies and lives. I join my prayers with the millions around our nation for them and hope the Lord will comfort them in their hour of need. I was watching Sportscenter this morning and watched as the crowd at TD Garden in Boston (Bruins and Buffalo Sabres) sang ”karaoke” to the National Anthem and it was a sound to behold. It is unfortunate that it takes tragedy to rally people. As well, it has also put on hold — likely forever — the NFL dreams of one Brandon O’Brien. This item was sent to me and I am sure the sender — Move America Forward — wouldn’t mind me sharing this with my readers. “Who is Brandon O’Brien?” you inquire. He is a 30-year-old retired US Marine who played at Montana State Northern University after he left the service and had hopes of being drafted or being signed as a free agent by The League as a wide receiver. Well, after Monday’s events, he is reenlisting in the Marines. MAF is an organization providing support for our troops serving overseas. To read the full story and for more information, see their web site. I don’t know if the new car in NASCAR is the sole reason that the season — so far — seems to be more competitive, more

nerve-racking and thus inducing higher emotions or not. It seems every race has had a controversial ending: either on the last lap or two with wrecks and personal vendettas or last week with Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano having original rearend housing being confiscated prior to Saturday night’s race at Texas and forcing Logano to start last because he was late for the beginning of the race due to inspections. This has led to some paranoia on the part of Keselowski — but that’s only because they might be out to get him! Especially after reading some articles about other competitors “blowing the whistle” on the Penske duo. By the way, they — and their crews — both got nailed with punishments handed down Wednesday. Listen, I can’t really tell you the difference about all the parts that go into a stock car — or an F-1 or open-wheel or whatever car you’re talking about — how they affect the car and how they can be “modified”: racing is not my area of expertise (some wonder if I have one!!!). And I do know of the “maxim” in racing to the effect that if you’re not trying to step over the line (as far as the car goes) — or something to that effect — you’re not trying. However, this is also what NASCAR wants: to bring the excitement back into the racing and thus, the ratings, the crowds and everything that goes with it. That being written, I don’t this is the type of publicity the sports needs or wants: a 42-year-old fan, Kirk Franklin, committed suicide in the infield at the Texas race after getting into an argument with other campers. I remember a friend of mine from Indiana from my college days telling me that he was in the infield at the Indianapolis 500 and, well, all the action was NOT on the pavement. Folks, I get the passion and emotion of this: a lot of people live for this stuff. It isn’t worth dying — or in this case, killing yourself — for. Rest in peace, Mr. Franklin.

The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Dwight Howard had a simple message for the Lakers after Chandler Parsons’ 34-foot, line-drive 3-pointer at the regulation buzzer added five more minutes to the final game of Los Angeles’ already exhausting regular season. Nothing has been easy for the Lakers all year long, Howard told his teammates. Why should the finale be any different? With five more minutes of perseverance, the Lakers ended up with quite a reward. After getting up Wednesday morning with no guarantee their season wouldn’t end that night, they surged into the seventh playoff spot in the West with a 99-95 overtime victory over the Houston Rockets. Steve Blake scored 24 points and Pau Gasol added his seventh career triple-double for the Lakers (4537), who only clinched a postseason berth about 10 minutes before tipoff. Despite Parsons’ improbable tying basket, Los Angeles won again without Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash, earning a firstround date with second-seeded San Antonio. “I’m proud of the whole team and the way they stepped up at the end of the year,” said Blake, who added seven assists and seven rebounds to cap his second impressive game in Bryant’s absence.

Los Angeles Lakers hold off Rockets, take West’s 7th seed
“We definitely expected more at the beginning of the year but we’re proud we’re here. … I couldn’t believe it when a couple of days ago somebody said we even had a chance to be in the seventh spot and now we’re there.” Gasol had 17 points, 20 rebounds and 11 assists in his second triple-double in three games for the Lakers, who avoided the embarrassment of missing the playoffs for just the second time in Bryant’s 17-year career. Howard had 16 points and 18 rebounds for the Lakers and the AllStar center blocked James Harden’s shot in the final seconds of overtime to finish up the Lakers’ fifth straight win, their eighth in nine games. “From where we were 20 or 30 games ago, a seven (seed) is pretty good,” coach Mike D’Antoni said. “We shouldn’t have been in that spot in the first place but it’s our fault.” Antawn Jamison added 16 points as the Lakers won their second straight without Bryant, who tore his Achilles tendon last Friday and watched another game from his home in Orange County. Nash hasn’t played in eight games with a hamstring injury but the Lakers finished the regular season with a gritty comeback win despite Chandler’s heroics. Parsons hit a tying 3-pointer from three steps behind the line night before the Lakers went ahead with 6 1/2 minutes to play,but both teams struggled offensively in the final minutes before Parsons ended up alone with the ball near midcourt in the final seconds after a broken-play scramble. His desperate 3-pointer had almost no arch but dropped in to force overtime. Neither team made a shot in overtime until Gasol’s jumper with 2:26 left, ending a field-goal drought of more than eight minutes for the Lakers. After Jodie Meeks drove the baseline and dunked in the final minute, Howard stepped in front of Harden and blocked the Houston star’s drive with 20 seconds left. Blake and Meeks hit free throws in the final seconds to wrap it up.

at the regulation buzzer for the Rockets (45-37), who will face topseeded Oklahoma City after losing four out of six to end the regular season. Harden scored 30 points and Parsons had 23 for the Rockets, who already knew they were back in the postseason after a 3-year absence but could have ended up in three seedings depending on Wednesday’s results. Houston had a shot at the No. 6 spot before Golden State beat Portland earlier but Los Angeles holds the tie-breaker on the Rockets. “If we play their pace, their two big guys just control the game after a while,” Houston coach Kevin McHale said. “We went through some stretches where we struggled offensively. We were stopping them but they were just getting second and third shots. That killed us.” Houston led for most of the

NOTES: Howard grabbed his 9,000th career rebound in the first quarter, becoming the youngest player to reach the mark, 14 days faster than Wilt Chamberlain. Howard, who went straight from high school to the NBA, is only the 13th-fastest in terms of games (697). … Houston has won just one playoff round since 1997. The Lakers haven’t been knocked out in the first round of the postseason since 2007. WARRIORS 99, TRAIL BLAZERS 88 PORTLAND, Ore. — Stephen Curry set a NBA single-season record for 3-pointers with 272 and Golden State defeated Portland in the teams’ season finale. It was the 13th straight loss for the Blazers, equaling the franchise record set in the 1971-72 season. Curry

surpassed Ray Allen’s single-season 3-point total of 269 set in 2005-06. Needing two for the record, Curry opened the game with two straight misses from beyond the arc but hit his first midway through the first quarter before making the record-breaker with 6:49 to go in the second. His backcourt teammate Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 24 points. Golden State earned the Western Conference’s sixth seed and will face Denver in the first round of the playoffs. LaMarcus Aldridge had 30 points and a seasonhigh 21 rebounds for Portland. GRIZZLIES 86, JAZZ 70 MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Zach Randolph had 25 points and 19 rebounds and Memphis ended Utah’s playoff hopes. Mike Conley finished with 14 points for Memphis. Darrell Arthur finished with 11 points for the Grizzlies, who took the West’s fifth seed and will face the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round. Al Jefferson scored 22 points and grabbed 16 rebounds to lead Utah, the only Jazz player in double figures. The Jazz managed only 32 percent shooting and were outrebounded 57-47. BULLS 95, WIZARDS 92 CHICAGO — Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 15 rebounds to help the Bulls clinch the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference with a win over the Wizards in the regular-season finale. Kirk Hinrich added 18 points and Nazr Mohammed had a season-high 17 for the Bulls, who will face the Brooklyn Nets in the opening round of the playoffs. A.J. Price scored a career-high 24 points and John Wall overcame a slow start to finish with 23 for the Wizards,

The Associated Press BOSTON — A win for the Bruins would have been an uplifting end to the city’s emotional return to major sports after the Boston Marathon bombing. Simply playing the game was good enough. A moving “Star-Spangled Banner,” a touching slideshow of marathon scenes and a postgame, stick-raising salute to the capacity crowd by both teams made it a night to remember two days after a pair of deadly explosions at the city’s revered race. “It was still positive in the way that we had an event and we had cheering and we had people out and about, having a good time,” Boston’s Andrew Ference said after Buffalo’s 3-2 shootout win Wednesday night. “To get a win, we wanted it so bad. I think you still take the good from the night.” The Bruins nearly got that win but with just 26.6 second left in regulation, Cody Hodgson scored the Sabres’ second powerplay goal. And when Drew Stafford got the only shootout goal on the final shot, Buffalo

Boston fans mourn, then cheer as sports return
had its victory. The competition over, players from both teams gathered at center ice and hoisted their sticks in recognition of the fans, the city and the determination of both to remain resilient after two explosions near the finish line killed three people and injured more than 170 on Monday. “We are trying to put on a show for the fans and, hopefully, give them some sort of escape,” Stafford said. “With everything that happened, emotions were extremely high tonight. I am sure that there were not a lot of dry eyes in the stands during the anthem.” It has been sung at Bruins games for more than 30 years by Rene Rancourt. On Wednesday, dressed in his trademark tuxedo and gold bow tie, he sang the first few lines then gestured to the crowd to join in. Most of the 17,565 fans lifted their voices in an a cappella version. “You’re around thousands of people you don’t know but it’s like we’re all one,” Boston’s Brad Marchand said. “It was special there tonight and very emotional.” The crowd energized the players and for the first 35 minutes, the action was sharp and swift. Daniel Paille scored his ninth goal of the season for Boston at 5:45 of the first period, Thomas Vanek got his 17th for Buffalo at 18:20 and Chris Kelly gave the Bruins a 2-1 lead at 14:48 of the second. Both teams got a boost in the standings. The one point the Bruins earned clinched a playoff berth and moved them from fourth to second in the Eastern Conference. The Sabres’ third straight victory put them in 10th place in the East, two points behind the eighth and final playoff spot but with only four games left. “We have a chance to just write our own story,” Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller said. “We have to win our own hockey games and maybe get some help along the way. Tonight, we helped ourselves a little bit and we still have games against teams ahead of us (in the standings).”

wrapped up the regular season with a win over the Magic. The Heat (66-16) became the 14th team in NBA history to finish with a winning percentage over .800 and did so with LeBron James away from the team for the day while tending to a personal matter. Orlando finished with the NBA’s worst record, 20-62. Rashard Lewis scored 16 points, Juwan Howard added 12 and Ray Allen scored 10 for Miami. The Heat have home-court advantage throughout the playoffs and will open against the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday. Nik Vucevic had 20 points and 13 rebounds for Orlando. Only once have the Magic won fewer games in a season — their inaugural year, going 18-64 in 1989-90. KNICKS 98, HAWKS 92 NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony won the scoring title without playing and the Atlanta Hawks lost their chance to move up in the East standings. Chris Copeland scored 33 points on a night that belonged to the benches and the Knicks wrapped up their winningest season in 16 years by beating the Hawks. With Anthony and just about every important player on either side sitting, the Knicks finished 54-28, their most victories since going 57-25 in 1996-97. New York is the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference and will host the No. 7 Boston Celtics on Saturday. NETS 103, PISTONS 99 NEW YORK — Brook Lopez scored 20 points and reserve Andray Blatche added 15 as the playoff-bound Nets held off the Pistons. Kris Humphries had 11 points and Joe Johnson added 10 for Brooklyn. The Nets wrapped up their first regular season after leaving New Jersey and will open their first playoff series in six years at home against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. Will Bynum had 23 points for the Pistons. Andre Drummond scored 13 points and Greg Monroe added 12 points and 12 rebounds. Detroit will miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season. TIMBERWOLVES 108, SPURS 95 SAN ANTONIO — Derrick Williams had 21 points to help the Timberwolves beat the Spurs, ending a 16-game losing streak at San Antonio. Chase Budinger added 15 points and Greg Stiemsma and Ricky Rubio had 12 points apiece for Minnesota, won on the Spurs’ home court for the first time since Jan. 14, 2004. Gary Neal had 17 points, Tim Duncan had 17 points and 14 rebounds and Tony Parker had 15 points and eight assists

Jonas Valanciunas scored 18 points, Alan Anderson had 16 and Kyle Lowry had nine points and eight assists. Jordan Crawford scored 16 points, Terrence Williams had 12 and Avery Bradley 11 for the Celtics, who played for the first time since Monday’s bomb attack near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Players from both teams gathered at midcourt before tip-off to observe a moment of silence. BUCKS 95, THUNDER 89 OKLAHOMA CITY — Rookie John Henson scored a career-high 28 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, Brandon Jennings had 17 points and the Bucks beat the Thunder in a regular-season finale lacking any postseason implications. Needing to score 70 points to surpass New York’s Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant conceded the NBA scoring title and joined starting center Kendrick Perkins and key reserves Kevin Martin and Nick Collison in suits on the Thunder bench. Russell Westbrook extended the NBA’s longest active consecutive games played streak to 394 by playing the first 7 minutes, helping the Thunder score the game’s first seven points and build a 20-9 lead. The Bucks didn’t pull ahead until Henson’s two-handed slam early in the fourth quarter, during a 27-6 run. Reggie Jackson led Oklahoma City with a career-best 23 points. MAVERICKS 99, HORNETS 87 DALLAS — Darren Collison scored 25 points, Dirk Nowitzki added 16 and the Dallas Mavericks finished their worst season in 13 years on a winning note, beating New Orleans in its final game as the Hornets. The Mavericks (41-41) avoided their first losing record since going 40-42 in 1999-2000 — also the last time they missed the playoffs. Al-Farouq Amini had 16 points and a career-high 20 rebounds for New Orleans, which will become the Pelicans next season. Eric Gordon also scored 16 for the Hornets. Nowitzki, who also had a team-high nine rebounds, scored nine points in the third quarter, including a 3-point play on a jumper and his one-legged step-back shot at the buzzer for a 75-64 lead. The Hornets got within six in the fourth quarter,but Collison scored eight straight points to key an 18-4 run that put the Mavs ahead by 20. BOBCATS 105, CAVALIERS 98 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Kemba Walker had 24 points and seven assists and the Charlotte Bobcats defeated the Cavaliers to avoid finishing in the NBA cellar for a second consecutive season.

With the win the Bobcats became the first team in NBA history to triple their win total from the previous season. Charlotte finished last year’s lockout-shortened season 7-59 and its .106 winning percentage was the worst ever. 76ERS 105, PACERS 95 INDIANAPOLIS — Dorell Wright scored 23 points and Evan Turner added 16, leading Philadelphia to a victory over shorthanded Indiana in what was likely Doug Collins’ final game as the 76ers coach. The organization has already scheduled morning news conferences with the managing owner and Collins, who spent almost the entire game glued to his seat and spoke mostly with a hand covering his mouth. Philadelphia (34-48) finished the season out of the playoffs. The Pacers (49-31) were led by Gerald Green who had a career-high 34 points. Lance Stephenson had 12 points. Indiana rested four starters — Paul George, George Hill, Roy Hibbert and David West. NUGGETS 118, SUNS 98 DENVER — The Denver Nuggets secured the third seed in the Western Conference playoffs by routing the Suns behind 21 points from Wilson Chandler and 20 from Andre Iguodala. They will face sixth-seeded Golden State in the first round, opening at home — where they’ve won a franchise-best 23 straight games to finish with the league’s best home mark at 38-3, eclipsing the old record of 36-5 set in 1976-77, their first year in the NBA. They also won an NBA franchise record 57 games overall, besting the 54-win seasons of 1987-88 and 2008-09. Luis Scola’s 17 points and 11 rebounds led the Suns, who wrapped up the second-worst season in franchise history with a mark of 25-57, the worst in the West. CLIPPERS 112, KINGS 108 SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Jamal Crawford scored 24 points, including several big shots down the stretch, and the Clippers locked up the No. 4 seed in the West and home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Chris Paul had 25 points and 11 assists for the Pacific Division champion Clippers (56-26), who will open against fifth-seeded Memphis (56-26) in Los Angeles. The Clippers won three of four games against the Grizzlies this season. DeMarcus Cousins had a season-high 36 points and a career-best 22 rebounds and Marcus Thornton scored 21 to rally Sacramento from an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter before the Clippers took control.

The game was played amid tightened security. Fans quietly lined up for metal-detecting wands and random car inspections to get into the TD Garden. The video on the scoreboard above center ice ended with the message, “We are Boston, We are Strong.” The players on the ice for the opening faceoff banged their sticks in the traditional hockey salute, drifting back off the blue lines so that they, too, could see the video. The Boston Fire Department Honor Guard brought out the U.S. flag to honor the first responders who rushed to the aid of the injured. And the national anthem had Marchand “fighting back tears.” The Bruins returned to action after Monday night’s game against Ottawa, scheduled to start less than five hours after the explosions, was postponed and later rescheduled for April 28. Tuesday night’s NBA game at the Garden between the Indiana Pacers and Celtics was canceled outright.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013 surprises are in the offing in the year ahead, once Lady Luck decides to mastermind your material affairs. She may be responsible for putting together something that you’d never have had the courage to attempt. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -It looks like many of your endeavors will turn out favorably, and something special might develop through an old friend repaying a favor. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t lower your expectations regarding something that you’re hoping to acquire. Conditions are far more favorable than you may realize. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It might appear that one of your recent ideas is too grand to effectively realize. It’s OK to modify it a little, but don’t change its root. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -A partner in a joint endeavor is likely to need some reassurance regarding his or her share of the payoff. Clarify your intentions. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are in an unusually good cycle for achieving your objectives. This is likely to be true even if someone else is calling the shots. Don’t rock the boat. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Because you have all of the right things going for you, such as motivation, ambition, tenacity and luck, a number of your objectives are attainable when you put forth your best effort. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You’re likely to be in for some pleasant surprises, all because you may be given some additional chances to succeed. Don’t waste them. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Certain joint ventures can be especially promising if you focus on the facets that offer you the greatest potential for growth and reward. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- One of your greatest assets is your ability to unite divergent interests for beneficial purposes. When you put arrangements together, everyone will gain. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- This is the right day to begin implementing changes that you believe would improve working conditions and/or profitability. At least it’s worth a try. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- A partnership arrangement could work out to be quite fortunate for you today, provided this common objective is given prominence over any and all other secondary interests. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It looks like you could be luckier if you finalize some important matters now instead of tomorrow. Don’t leave any loose ends dangling.

5 to 15 people killed in Texas explosion
BY JOHN L. MONE and MICHAEL BRICK WEST, Texas (AP) — Rescue workers searched rubble early today for survivors of a fertilizer plant explosion in a small Texas town that killed as many as 15 people and injured more than 160 others. The blast left the factory a smoldering ruin and leveled homes and businesses for blocks in every direction. The explosion in downtown West, a small farming community about 20 miles north of Waco, shook the ground with the strength of a small earthquake and could be heard dozens of miles away. It sent flames shooting into the night sky and rained burning embers and debris down on shocked and frightened residents. “They are still getting injured folks out and they are evacuating people from their homes,” Waco police Sgt. William Patrick Swanton said early this morning. He added later, “At some point this will turn into a recovery operation, but at this point, we are still in search and rescue.” Swanton said authorities believe that between five and 15 people were killed in the blast, but stressed that is an early estimate. There is no indication the blast was anything other than an industrial accident, he said. Among those believed to be dead: Three to five volunteer firefighters and a single law enforcement officer who responded to a fire call at the West Fertilizer Co. shortly before the blast. They remained unaccounted for early this morning. The explosion that struck around 8 p.m. leveled a four-block area around the plant that a member of the city council, Al Vanek, said was “totally decimated.” The toll included 50 to 75 houses, an apartment complex with about 50 units that one state police officer said was reduced to “a skeleton,” a middle school and the West Rest Haven Nursing Home, from which first-responders evacuated 133 patients, some in wheelchairs. Other witnesses compared the scene the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, and authorities said the plant made materials similar to that used to fuel the bomb that tore apart that city’s Murrah Federal Building. Although authorities said it will be some time before they know how many lives were lost, they put the number of those injured at more than 160 early today. West Mayor Tommy Muska told reporters that his city of about 2,800 residents needs “your prayers.” “We’ve got a lot of people who are hurt, and there’s a lot of people, I’m sure, who aren’t gonna be here tomorrow,” Muska said. “We’re gonna search for everybody. We’re gonna make sure everybody’s accounted for. That’s the most important thing right now. Muska was among the firefighters, and he and his colleagues were working to evacuate the area around the plant when the blast followed about 20 minutes later. Muska said it knocked off his fire helmet and blew out the doors and windows of his nearby home. The main fire was under control as of 11 p.m., authorities said, but residents were urged to remain indoors because of the threat of new explosions or leaks of ammonia from

In Financial Business, board members accepted the following donations; $927 from Fort Jennings Activity Boosters to Band Trip Fund; $500 from Medical Mutual for Scholarship; $50 to the Building Fund in memory of Felicia Dickman; and as entire collection of Dinotopia books to third-grade classroom from Nick Wurst. Board members accepted the retirement of John Von Sossan from the Varsity Boys Basketball Coaching position. Superintendent Nicholas Langhals commended Von Sossan for his achievements at the school. “On behalf of the school and myself, we want to thank coach Von Sossan for over 50 years,” Langhals stated. “On and off the court he’s done a lot for the kids and the school.” Members passed the reso-

lution expressing the opposition to provisions in House Bill (HB) 59. Langhals updated the board members on the administration’s progress with Race To The Top. The team had a regional meeting at UNOH last week where they discussed upcoming Think Gate sessions. Think Gate is the technology solution for rapidly and efficiently bringing information, educators and students closer together. “We are doing good,” Langhals said. “Progressing nicely.” Principal Kathleen Verhoff gave the Elementary Report. On Wednesday, fifth and sixthgrade students participated in the county Quiz Bowl, which was the first time they competed with other schools. Verhoff said that the students did very well. Recently, fifth and sixgrade students took part in the School Speech Contests, which was themed “Overcoming Adversity”. Sixth-grade students Rachael Luersman and Lindsey Core, and fifth-grade student Raylee Clay, placed first, second and third successively and will be competing at the county level in early May. The next school board meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m. May 16.

Ricin is indicated in letters Gun control backers: to Obama, senator Senate defeat won’t stop us
BY EILEEN SULLIVAN and LAURIE KELLMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — In a capital city on edge, letters sent to President Barack Obama and a Mississippi senator tested positive for poisonous ricin in preliminary checks, and authorities chased a stream of false alarms about seemingly suspicious packages and mail sent to senators in Washington and beyond. Authorities still waited for definitive tests on the letters to Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., which had raised concern Wednesday at a time when many people were jittery after the Boston bombings. An FBI intelligence bulletin obtained by The Associated Press said those two letters were postmarked Memphis, Tenn. Both letters said: “To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.” Both were signed, “I am KC and I approve this message.” The letters were intercepted before reaching the White House or Senate. The FBI said Wednesday that more testing was underway. Preliminary field tests can often show false positives for ricin. As authorities scurried to investigate three questionable packages discovered in Senate office buildings, reports of suspicious items also came in from at least three senators’ offices in their home states. Sen. Carl Levin said a staff member at his Saginaw, Mich., office would spend the night in a hospital as a precaution after discovering a suspicious letter. The staff member had no symptoms, Levin said in a statement. He expected to learn preliminary results of tests on the letter by today. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said suspicious letters at his Phoenix office had been cleared with nothing dangerous found. A package at Sen. John Cornyn’s Dallas-area office also was declared harmless, a fire department spokesman said. All three packages in the Capitol complex turned out to be safe, Capitol police spokeswoman Makema Turner said late Wednesday. But a man was still being questioned after being stopped in connection with the packages, she said. WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and his gun control allies say Senate rejection of expanded background checks and other restrictions won’t stop their drive to reduce firearms violence. But their path to enacting gun curbs this year seems blocked by the National Rifle Association, and supporters of restrictions appear befuddled about what it will take to push legislation through this Congress. The Senate planned to vote today on two more amendments to a gun control bill. One by Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., would cut aid to state and local governments that release information on gun owners. Another by Sens. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.,

the plant’s ruins. Swanton said early today authorities were not concerned about lingering smoke from the fire. Dozens of emergency vehicles amassed at the scene in the hours after the blast, as fires continued to smolder in the ruins of the plant and in several surrounding buildings. Aerial footage showed injured people being treated on the flood-lit football field that had been turned into a staging area. Vanek said first-responders treated victims at about half a dozen sites, and he saw several injured residents from the nursing home being treated at the community center. Swanton said the injured rescued so far had been taken to hospitals in Waco and a triage center at high school in nearby Abbott. About 100 of the injured were treated at Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center in Waco, where five people were in intensive care. Another 65 were taken to Providence Health Center in Waco. Officials said the injuries included broken bones, bruises, lacerations, respiratory distress, and some head injuries and minor burns.

Fund set up to repay hermit victims
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — A lawyer for the Maine man who lived in the woods as a hermit for 27 years has established a fund to repay people who think they may have been his victims. Authorities say Christopher Knight, known as the North Pond Hermit, may have com-

would bolster federal mental health programs. But just four months after a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., the Senate proved unwilling Wednesday to approve the key elements of President Barack Obama’s response to the massacre. Lawmakers rejected broader federal background checks and bans on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, jarring gun control backers who thought Newtown would spur Congress to act and delivering a victory for the NRA and a defeat for Obama. “I see this as just Round One,” the president said at the White House, surrounded by relatives of Newtown’s victims and badly wounded former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Arizona moves to force sale of turned-in guns
PHOENIX (AP) — The months since the deadly Connecticut school shooting have seen dozens of gun buyback events across the country, with officials getting thousands of unwanted firearms off the street and sending them off to their destruction. In Arizona, however, the Republican-controlled Legislature is now moving to save such guns. Prompted by a gun buyback event in January in Tucson, where a 2011 shooting rampage left six dead and wounded then-U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 12 others, GOP lawmakers crafted a bill that would require local agencies to sell the firearms to gun dealers. The bill, which has passed both chambers of the Legislature, tightens a 2010 law that requires police to sell seized weapons. Dozens of buybacks have been held this year in states from New Jersey to

The 47-year-old Knight was arrested earlier this month while allegedly breaking into a camp for people with special needs to steal food. He is being held on $25,000 bail.
