More devastating cuts for Elida if levy fails
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com ELIDA — On the May 7 Primary Election ballot, Elida Local Schools will make a request for new money, its second request in the last year. After claims in the past that school funding is too reliant on property taxes, Elida tried for something different with a 5-year, 0.75-percent Earned Income Tax Levy. The levy wouldn’t have affected income generated by pensions, retirement, interest or capital gains, yet 60 percent of voters said no. This time, Elida hopes voters will pass a 5.95-mill property tax levy, which would provide some financial stability for the next five years, generating $2.1 million annually. After the failure of November’s levy, the school board approved a $465,569 reduction plan that will still go into effect regardless of whether or not May’s attempt succeeds. If it fails, more reductions will be made. District officials are stumped as to where those reductions will come from. “It’s an impossible task to say what’s next because anything less than what we have now will be devastating to our district,” Diglia said. Elida has cut 43 staff positions over the last 10 years and is currently at just 14 teachers above the minimum to meet state standards. Further cuts could include letting go of a building coach at the elementary, a science teacher, language arts teacher and foreign language teacher at the high school, a foreign language teacher at the middle school and a return to half-day kindergarten. “Going to half-day kindergarten is really the only true reflection of a cut because those kids go away: we’d only get them for half a day,” Diglia said. “But cutting those teaching positions at the middle school and high school, those kids don’t go away. We still have to do something with them. They can’t go in the other classes because they’re too full. What we’d have to do is hire a study hall monitor and send those kids to study hall instead of class.” Diglia says cuts could be made to extracurriculars and other course offerings but doing so would result in

a less thorough education and would make Elida’s students less competitive in college. “We spend about half a million dollars on extracurriculars but I can’t even entertain that thought,” he said. “It’s much more than athletics,; it’s also performing arts, quiz bowl, National Honor Society, student council. If we’re going to be a comprehensive public school, we’re going to have to have things for our kids to do, otherwise, they’ll be out on the street. It’s part of a well-rounded education, part of community pride. It’s part of why people come to Elida.” Elida will also ask for a renewal of its 1-mill permanent improvement levy. This is a renewal and does not increase district residents’ taxes.

The public is invited to attend a presentation and open discussion of the “Strategic Plan to Restore the Miami-Erie Canal in the Greater Delphos, Ohio Area” at 7 p.m. on Monday at the Delphos Municipal Building. The initial plan was developed in 2006 by a plan development committee made up of a diverse group of interested and concerned citizens under the auspices of the Delphos Canal Commission and MECCA. The plan addressed trails, green space, open public areas, education, economic development, history, aesthetics, water flow, signage and other issues that will help shape the future of this historic asset.

Brotherwood keeps busy at library Wesleyan Church
Rev. Shade BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — When I&K Distributers closed last year, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise for Sarah Brotherwood, who was employed there for 13 years. Searching through job openings in the paper led her to the clerk position at the Delphos Public Library. After reading the description, she knew it was the perfect job for her. Brotherwood was hired on March 14 and is enjoying settling into her busy routine. “The day-to-day varies but usually I come in and pull books for the consortium, get those scanned and put them on a shelf for us to get ready,” Brotherwood said. “I also spend time making flyers for upcoming events we have planned. I help check books in and out and I also put books away. I’ve been taking care of our iTunes account and downloading the CD’s we need for story time. We got an iPod, thanks to the Dienstberger Foundation, and I’ve been downloading the CDs into playlists, so we have them all in one place and don’t need to flip through them all.” Much to Brotherwood’s delight, a large part of her job is helping out Children’s Librarian Denise Cressman. “I help Denise out with the children’s programs. We’ve been doing a lot with the Summer Reading Program,” she said. “I stay busy getting the flannel boards made up and

welcomes new pastor
BY STEPHANIE GROVES sgroves@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — This past March, Wesleyan Church voted in its newest senior pastor, the Rev. Rodney Shade, who has been the interim pastor for the church since June 2012. He was saved in October 1974 and was sanctified in the Wesleyan Church in Bradford in 1975. Throughout his 30 years of ministry, Rev. Shade has remained in Ohio. He began his ministry in 1982 in Troy, where in his five-year tenure with the church, the congregation doubled in attendance. Five years later, Shade became the assistant pastor in New Miami, where he led a congregation of 120 people, was in charge of the church’s Christian School and created a program of how to minister to those not attending the church’s services.

I’ll help out with anything Denise needs, like putting the flowers up on the windows or finding books to display.” Helping Cressman with programs and activities provides a chance for Brotherwood to spend time with the children, something she looks forward to. “I love working with the kids,” she said. “It just feels good to know they’re having fun. They’ll come up to me afterwards and give me a hug and it’s because they had a See CLERK, page 2

“It’s kinda like PR (Public Relations) in sales,” Shade mused. Shade experienced a short tenure in New Miami due to the senior pastor’s resignation, which required him to resign his assistant pastor position. In 1988 while in Sidney, Shade’s ministry went really well. In 13 years, the church tripled in attendance, quadrupled in finances and led to the building of a 4,400-square-foot parsonage. In 1992, Shade was appointed to Greenville Bethel Long, the first interracial community in Ohio with ties to the Underground Railroad. “It was the best church I’ve been at because of the people,” he said. Today, Shade is utilizing two assistant pastors and “reformatting” his ministry. The goal is to train and equip See SHADE, page 2


Fight far from over on Internet sales tax
BY STEPHEN OHLEMACHER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Internet shoppers are moving closer to paying sales taxes for their online purchases. But the fight is far from over. The Senate voted 63-30 Thursday to advance a bill that would impose state and local sales taxes on purchases made over the Internet. An agreement among senators delayed the Senate’s final vote on passage until May 6, when senators return from a weeklong vacation. Opponents hope senators hear from angry constituents over the next week, but they acknowledged they have a steep hill to climb to defeat the bill in the Senate. Their best hope for stopping the bill may be in the House, where some Republicans consider it a tax increase. President Barack Obama supports the bill. The bill would empower states to reach outside their borders and compel online retailers to collect state and local sales taxes for purchases made over the Internet. Under the bill, the sales taxes would be sent to the states where a shopper lives. Under current law, states can only require stores to collect sales taxes if the store has a physical presence in the state. As a result, many online sales are essentially tax-free, giving Internet retailers an advantage over brick-andmortar stores. Senate Democratic leaders wanted to finish work on the bill this week, before leaving town for the recess. But they were blocked by a handful of senators from states without sales taxes. Oregon, Montana, New Hampshire and Delaware have no sales taxes, though the two senators from Delaware support the bill. The bill pits brick-and-mortar stores like Wal-Mart against online services such as eBay. The National Retail Federation supports it. And Amazon. com, which initially fought efforts in some states to make it collect sales taxes, supports it, too. Retailers who have lobbied in favor of the bill celebrated Thursday’s vote. Supporters say the bill is about fairness for local businesses that already collect sales taxes, and lost revenue for states. Opponents say the bill would impose complicated regulations on retailers and doesn’t have enough protections for small businesses. Businesses with less than $1 million a year in online sales would be exempt. Many of the nation’s governors — Republicans and Democrats — have been lobbying the federal government for years for the authority to collect sales taxes from online sales. The issue is getting bigger for states as more people make purchases online. Last year, Internet sales in the U.S. totaled $226 billion, up nearly 16 percent from the previous year, according to Commerce Department estimates. The National Conference of State Legislatures estimates that states lost $23

billion last year because they couldn’t collect taxes on out-of-state sales. Anti-tax groups have labeled the bill a tax increase. But it gets support from many Republicans who have pledged not to increase taxes. The bill’s main sponsor is Sen. Mike Enzi, a conservative Republican from Wyoming. He has worked closely with Durbin, a liberal Democrat. Enzi and Durbin say the bill doesn’t raise taxes. Instead, they say, it gives states a mechanism to enforce current taxes. In many states, shoppers are required to pay unpaid sales taxes when they file state tax returns. But governors complain that few people comply. Under the bill, states that want to collect online sales taxes must provide free computer software to help retailers calculate the taxes, based on where shoppers live. States must also establish a single entity to receive Internet sales tax revenue, so retailers don’t have to send them to individual counties or cities.

US economy accelerates at 2.5 percent rate in Q1
BY MARTIN CRUTSINGER WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. economic growth accelerated from January through March, buoyed by the strongest consumer spending in more than two years. The strength offset further declines in government spending that are expected to drag on growth throughout the year. The Commerce Department said today that the overall economy expanded at an annual rate of 2.5 percent in the first quarter, rebounding from the anemic 0.4 percent growth rate in the October-December quarter. Much of the gain reflected a jump in consumer spending, which rose at an annual rate of 3.2 percent. That’s the best since the end of 2010. Businesses responded to the greater demand by rebuilding to their stockpiles. And home construction rose further. But government spending fell at a 4.1 percent rate, led by another deep cut in federal defense spending. That kept growth below economists’ expectations of a rate exceeding 3 percent. And broad government spending cuts that began in March are expected to weigh on the economy for the rest of the year, while higher taxes have started to make some consumers and businesses cautious. Many economists say they think growth as measured by the gross domestic product is slowing in the April-June quarter to an annual rate of just 2 percent. Most foresee growth remaining around this subpar level for the rest of the year. GDP is the broadest gauge of the economy’s health. It measures the total output of goods and services produced in the United States, from haircuts and hamburgers to

airplanes and automobiles. The cuts in government spending have forced federal agencies to furlough workers, reduced spending on key public projects and made businesses more nervous about investing and hiring this year. The cuts came two months after President Barack Obama and Congress allowed a Social Security tax cut to expire. That left a person earning $50,000 a year with about $1,000 less to spend this year. A household with two high-paid workers has up to $4,500 less. Consumers’ take-home pay is crucial to the economy because their spending drives roughly 70 percent of growth. Americans appeared to shrug off the tax increase at the start of the year. They boosted spending in January and February, helped by a stronger job market. In part, that’s why growth is expected to be solid in the first quarter.

We just have to fine tune some things.” Since his district appointment in June 2012, the church membership has grown by a third. Shade said that during Sunday services, the sanctuary is very crowded with the nearly 70 members. He is anticipating the congregation’s continued expansion. “Within the year, I could see having to have a second service on Sunday,” he said. Shade and his wife Beth have been married for over 40 years. Their family includes five children and 18 grandchildren. In addition, the Shades live with and care for their older adult mothers in their home. The church is looking forward to hosting community events; a Community Day and Open House.

Turkey hunters successful on opening day
Information submitted COLUMBUS — For the opening day of Ohio’s 2013 spring wild turkey season, hunters harvested 2,762 wild turkeys, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). The 2013 opening day total is a 24 percent increase from the 2012 opening day tally when 2,227 turkeys were killed. This year, Ashtabula County had the most checked wild turkeys of the opening day with 114 turkeys. Ashtabula County also had the largest number of turkeys harvested during the 2012 opening day. Ohio’s spring turkey season began Monday and closes May 19. The spring turkey season is open statewide except for Lake La Su An Wildlife Area in Williams County. Find more information in the 2012-2013 Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations, available where licenses are sold, and at wildohio.com. The ODNR Division of Wildlife estimates that more than 70,000 people will hunt turkeys during the four-week season. Legal hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise until noon from April 22 to May 5. Hunting hours May 6-19 will be one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. Ohio’s wild turkey population was estimated at 180,000 prior to the start of the spring season. Only bearded wild turkeys may be killed during the spring hunting season. A hunter is required to check their turkey by 11:30 p.m. on the day of harvest. Hunters with the proper permits may kill a limit of two bearded gobblers during the four-week season, but not more than one wild turkey per day. A new tagging procedure implemented this year allows hunters to make their own game tag to attach to a wild turkey. Game tags can be made of any material (cardboard, plastic, paper, etc.) as long as it contains the hunter’s name, date, time and county of the kill. Go to the Turkey Hunting Resources page at wildohio. com for more information on changes to the game check process. All hunters must report their turkey harvest using the automated game-check system. Hunters have three options to complete the game-check: Online at wildohio.com or ohiogamecheck.com; Call 877-TAG-ITOH (877-8244864); Any license agent. A list of agents can be found at wildohio.com or by calling 800-WILDLIFE (800-945-3543). Game-check transactions are available online and by telephone seven days a week, including holidays. Landowners exempt from purchasing a turkey permit, and other people not required to purchase a turkey permit, cannot use the phone-in option. The ODNR Division of Wildlife will update the total turkey harvest numbers on Monday, April 29, Monday, May 13, and Monday, May 20, at wildohio. com. The turkey harvest numbers will be listed by county as well as statewide. Ohio’s first modern day wild turkey season opened in 1966 in nine counties, and hunters checked 12 birds. The total number of checked turkeys topped 1,000 for the first time in 1984. Turkey hunting opened statewide in 2000. Watch Governor John Kasich and ODNR Director James Zehringer share a message to hunters for the start of wild turkey season here: http://bit.ly/ WildTurkeyHunting Welcome/. ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.gov. Editor’s Note: A list of all wild turkeys checked during opening day of the 2013 spring turkey hunting season is shown below.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An investigation by the Ohio Inspector General’s Office has found that some employees at the state Department of Health improperly use state-issued computers and software. The state watchdog’s report says that while there’s no evidence confidential information was compromised, the investigation revealed computer security weaknesses. Thursday’s report detailing the investigation says some employees in the Health Department’s Center of Creative Services improperly downloaded state-owned software for personal use and failed to install security upgrades in state computers. The investigation also found that one employee was using her work computer to run her own business. The Health Department says it has corrected the weaknesses, has new protocols in place and is exploring whether to take any other administrative action.

Ohio resumes 24hour Amber Alerts

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio has decided to resume sending cellphone alerts of missing children and other emergencies whenever they happen — even in the middle of the night. The Cleveland Plain Dealer said that the Ohio Amber Alert Steering Committee had halted cellphone alerts between midnight and 6 a.m. because people complained the loud alarms woke them up in fear. But the committee decided Thursday to resume the 24-hour alerts for people who have phones programmed with the Wireless Emergency Alert. The committee said the urgency of finding an abducted child outweighs the middle-of-the-night disruption. The alert system is coordinated through the federal government and the cellular phone industry.

“You Can’t Beat the Price - Or The Meal”


4 – The Herald

The word on the Brooklyn streets in 1959 was that a crazy preacher from Pennsylvania was helping addicts find the power to kick heroin and gang members to trade their weapons for Bibles. Reporter John McCandlish Phillips heard the talk in local churches and took the tip to his metro editors at The New York Times. This was more than a religion story, he argued. This was something truly new in urban ministry in a rough corner of the city. The editors just didn’t get it. “The New York Times could not see ... validity of this approach to any issue as serious as addiction. Editors said, ‘You can’t put a few religious ideas up against something as real as addiction and expect any results,’” said Phillips, in a 2000 interview in Riverside Park. The young preacher was David Wilkerson, whose story would eventually be told in the bestseller “The Cross and the Switchblade.” Phillips kept bringing his editors detailed reports about Teen Challenge’s work, which would eventually expand worldwide. Again, Phillips stressed this was not a story full of mumbo-jumbo. As a veteran reporter, he knew he needed a foundation of hard facts about subjects -- drug addiction and gang warfare -- that were clearly

The life and times of John McCandlish Phillips

On Religion
newsworthy. After a decade, his editors surrendered and let him write the story. “The results were there,” he said. “Lives were being changed. ... It was news. We miss too many stories like that and that’s a shame.” Phillips died on April 9 at the age of 85. His brilliant two-decade Times career ended when he left the newsroom in 1973, at the peak of his journalistic powers, to become a Pentecostal preacher on Manhattan’s upper West Side. His flock was small, but included some Christians in major newsrooms who considered him a discreet and invaluable mentor. No one questioned the man’s journalism skills. In a 1997 profile in The New Yorker -- “The Man Who Disappeared” -- writer Gay Talese was quoted calling him the “Ted Williams of the young reporters,” even on a legendary staff that included David Halberstam, Richard

Reeves and J. Anthony Lukas. “There was only one guy I thought I was not the equal of, and that was McCandlish Phillips,” said Talese. “Phillips is not interested in winning a Pulitzer Prize. He is not interested in demeaning people. ... He wants to redeem people. Talk about marching to a different drummer. Phillips is not even in the same jungle.” On the management side, the Times obituary noted that former managing editor Arthur Gelb once called Phillips “the most original stylist I’d ever edited.” The reporter’s death also fired online discussions of a controversial issue in mainstream journalism: whether many newsrooms are hostile environments for religious believers. A provocative piece at The Week ran under a headline stating, “Why newspapers need to hire more Christians: For starters, it would help rebut conservative concerns about media bias.” Decades before today’s “culture wars,” Phillips noted that he was the one bornagain, evangelical Protestant in a Times newsroom in which -- literally -- there were more bookies than people with Bibles on their desks. With a tired cackle, he told me, “God must love journalists, because everyone knows He loves sinners.” Yes, it would help if there were more

religious believers at the Times, he said, but only if they had the skills to work there. He couldn’t understand why so many young believers simply assume they could never work in real newsrooms, thus increasing the cultural and intellectual diversity in modern journalism. “We live in a world that is, in fact, rife with evils, is rife with excessive ambition, is rife with a willingness, by far too many people, to cut any corner or to practice any deception in order to advance their purposes. They will hide, if they can, their practices from the public eye,” he said. “Journalism at its best pursues the facts about certain situations in which evildoers are at work and assembles those facts and judges them fairly. It’s not a crusade, so much as it’s a responsible gathering of a body of evidence that, when it’s finally presented, is so persuasive that evil must skulk, retreat or be subjected to strong public remedy.” Phillips looked out across the Hudson River, into a setting sun. “Why,” he said, “wouldn’t Christian believers want to be part of that?”

Tons of linemen drafted but Te’o waits for Day 2
By RICHARD ROSENBLATT The Associated Press NEW YORK — More than 2 1/2 tons of linemen, five trades, one quarterback and no Manti Te’o. The first round of the NFL draft delivered an enormous portion of beef, with 18 teams devouring linemen from the opening pick of offensive tackle Eric Fisher by Kansas City to center Travis Frederick by Dallas at No. 31. But perhaps the biggest story of the first round was Teo’s name not being called by Commissioner Roger Goodell during the 3-hour, 33-minute session Thursday night. Te’o, the All-America linebacker from Notre Dame, became a tabloid sensation in January with revelations that the girlfriend who supposedly died during the season was actually a hoax. But what may have hurt his draft status most was his poor play in the national title game loss to Alabama and his slow 40-yard dash time at the NFL combine. Te’o wasn’t the only bigname player who will have to wait until today’s second round. West Virginia’s Geno Smith was expected to be taken but instead the only quarterback picked was Florida State’s EJ Manuel by Buffalo with the 16th spot, acquired in a trade with St. Louis. It was the lowest the first QB was taken since 2000, when Chad Pennington went 18th to the Jets. The Bills, of course, are optimistic about Manuel. “If we can develop this guy, he has the talent to take you to the dance,” Bills general manager Buddy Nix said. “This guy was further along than most of them as far as his knowledge of the game. … This guy, to us, has got leadership qualities. He’s smart. And he’s big.” Also left out in the first round were running backs — none was taken for the first time since 1963. Among running backs who could go in the second round are Eddie Lacy of Alabama and Montee Ball of Wisconsin. Other quarterbacks still waiting for their names to be called include USC’s Matt Barkley, Oklahoma’s Landry Jones and Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib. This first round showed off the beef. The breakdown: nine offensive linemen, nine defensive linemen. “It’s always nice when the O-line gets some respect,” offensive tackle Luke Joeckel said after being taken No. 2 by Jacksonville. “We usually get the crummy meeting room, the crummy chairs in our meeting room. “A lot of teams are realizing how important the position is. The guys, they look pretty scoring the touchdowns, but they get space to score those touchdowns from us.” And on the other side of the ball, teams need players to break through the line to get to the quarterbacks and running backs. That’s why Miami was in a trading mood, moving up from No. 12 to No. 3 in a deal with Oakland to grab defensive end Dion Jordan of Oregon. “We took a player we coveted quite a bit,” Dolphins’ GM Jeff Ireland said of the player he hopes could be the next Jason Taylor. “You’ve got to knock the quarterback down, you’ve got to take the ball away. This guy can do one of those two things.” After the opening two picks, the stampede was on. The first seven picks were all linemen. Fisher became the first Mid-American Conference player selected at the top when Chiefs new coach Andy Reid chose the 6-7, 306-pound offensive tackle. “This is so surreal,” Fisher said. “I’m ready to get to work right now. I’m ready to start playing some football. I can’t process what’s going on right now.” After Joeckel and Jordan were taken, it was BYU defensive end Ziggy Ansah to Detroit, LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo to Cleveland and North Carolina guard Jonathan Cooper to Arizona. Fisher was only the third offensive tackle picked No. 1, joining Orlando Pace (1997) and Jake Long (2008) since the 1970 merger of NFL and AFL. It’s also the first time since ‘70 that offensive tackles went 1-2. Even without a high-profile passer, runner or tackler going at the outset, the fans in the home of the Rockettes were pumped. They chanted “U-SA, U-S-A” when Goodell paid tribute to the first responders at the Boston Marathon bombings and to the victims of the explosion in West, Texas. They roared when Hall-ofFame quarterback Joe Namath began the countdown to the first outdoor Super Bowl in a cold-weather site by taking the podium and screaming: “New York; Super Bowl 48.” The crowd didn’t seem to care that early on the picks were all heifers, not hoofers. No Andrew Lucks or RG3s at the top of this crop. New Eagles coach Chip Kelly got a road-grader for his up-tempo offense in Johnson. In another trade, the Rams moved up eight spots — and sent four picks to Buffalo to do so. St. Louis then grabbed West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin, all 5-8, 174 pounds of him. The New York Jets may have found a replacement for star cornerback Darrelle Revis — traded to Tampa Bay — when they picked Alabama All-American Dee Milliner. That was the first of three straight selections from 2-time national champion Alabama: Tennessee took guard Chance Warmack and San Diego got offensive tackle D.J. Fluker. Oakland used the pick it got from the Dolphins for Houston cornerback D.J. Hayden, who nearly died last November after a collision in practice tore a blood vessel off the back of his heart. He was taken to a hospital and had surgery. Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei, who also had a heart scare

Former Patriots guard Joe Andruzzi, who carried an injured female runner to safety after the Boston Marathon explosions, displayed a jersey with the city’s 617 area code and “Boston Strong” written on the front. He was supposed to announce New England’s pick but the Patriots dealt it to Minnesota, giving the Vikings three first-round selections. Pittsburgh, which always seems to find standout linebackers, took the highest-rated one in Georgia’s Jarvis Jones. The Rams went with another Georgia linebacker, Alec Ogletree, with the No. 30 pick. Notre Dame ended up with a first-rounder when tight end Tyler Eifert was chosen 21st overall by Cincinnati. Atlanta’s choice of Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant gave that family three brothers in the league. His older siblings, Marcus and Isaiah, preceded him. One major surprise was the New York Giants’ selection of Justin Pugh — yet another tackle but one not projected to go in the opening round by many draft analysts.

Don’t wait for a special occasion; surprise a busy friend or family member anytime. The first reader tip shares a recipe gift idea: Recipe gift: My son gave a great one that I’ll never forget. I coveted his girlfriend’s mother’s pasta sauce, so he got the recipe and reprinted it, then put it and all of the ingredients in a basket. Very thoughtful! -- Cheryl, Massachusetts Remove ink stains: I was reading about ink stains today and wanted to share my experience with hair spray. Our dog chewed up a pen with blue ink that left a 2-by-3-inch stain, plus splatters, on a Berber carpet. I was just sick when I discovered it. I had read that hair spray will get ink out and I ran for my can of hair spray. I followed the directions and soaked the area with hair spray, dabbing with a clean white bath towel. It took about 30 minutes, but all of the stain came out. I did shampoo the area with carpet cleaner, and there is no stain in sight. -- Ruth R., Arizona Dilute juice: Having worked as a chair-side dental assistant, I can tell you that it’s good to water down juice for kids.

It will take on the texture and flavor of the beef, and you will have a hard time telling the difference. -- Sabrel, Indiana (Sara Noel is the owner of Frugal Village (www.frugalvillage.com), a website that offers practical, money-saving strategies for everyday living.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 2013 The possibility of you fulfilling a number of secret ambitions looks to be pretty good in the year ahead. Your sense of timing will be better than it has been in the past. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If you are far too sensitive for your own good and read all kinds of slights into the actions or words of others, you’re likely to let the least little thing ruin your day. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -There’s a good chance that most of your perceptions won’t be in line with reality. You’ll allow your imagination to make erroneous judgments that won’t serve your interests. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Do your best to accomplish as many essential tasks as possible early in the day. As the afternoon closes in, your sense of priorities might dissolve. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It’ll be important to guard against your more extravagant inclinations. If you lack control, you won’t be too effective at managing your resources. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Involvements with others are likely to go much smoother when conducted early in the day. Don’t wait until the afternoon, when everyone’s patience will be wearing thin. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -There is a strong possibility that you might judge people based on your emotions rather than your logic. If you do, others will evaluate you in the same manner. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -If you feel compelled to keep up with the Joneses, you’ll quickly exhaust your resources. Status isn’t worth bankruptcy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Be realistic regarding the demands you make of loved ones. Without realizing it, you might expect more of them then they’re able to give. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you have some confidential information that you’re anxious to talk about, make certain that you don’t spill the beans to the wrong people. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Because you’re likely to be unusually receptive to investment proposals, be extra careful that you can tell the good from the bad. Don’t act impulsively. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You’re opening yourself up for disappointment if you expect credit for an accomplishment that you have yet to achieve. Do what needs doing, be patient and let your deeds speak for themselves. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- To be successful, you must be tenacious and quick on your feet. If one of these elements is missing, you won’t have much to boast about. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

BY SETH BORENSTEIN WASHINGTON (AP) — More than 100 crucial gauges that warn of imminent flooding or lack of needed water will be shut down starting next month as part of the federal government’s automatic budget cuts. Some are in the nine states threatened with spring flooding, U.S. Geological Survey officials said in interviews with The Associated Press. In rivers where flooding is imminent, such as near Fargo, N.D., officials are scrambling to keep needed monitors working and make the cuts elsewhere. Details are still to be worked out, officials said. Jerad Bales, the agency’s chief scientist for water, said at least 120 gauges, and as many as 375 in a worst-case scenario, will be shut down because of the mandatory cuts known in Washington budget language as sequestration. “It’s a life and property issue. It’s a safety

Spending cuts may deep-six crucial flood gauges
issue,” Bales said in a telephone interview. Agency flood coordinator Robert Holmes said that without a full fleet of stream gauges, it is harder to warn people about flooding. For example, he said, the Illinois River was rising fast a few nights ago and the National Weather Service forecast was so dire that officials figured it wasn’t worth fighting the flood if they were going to lose anyway. But then new stream gauge data showed that it wouldn’t quite be as bad and that the levee could be strengthened enough to hold. So far it has worked, he said. There are 8,000 gauges across the country, paid for by a combination of federal, state and local governments. The federal government last year spent nearly $29 million on gauges, while other governments pitched in $116 million. The sequester cuts 5 percent from the federal share and that means shutting down a handful of gauges in each state. Because it is a joint program, decisions on which gauges to shut down are being made only after federal and state officials meet. For example, USGS officials originally proposed shutting four gauges in North Dakota, including two on the Red River which is facing what might be a record flood. After meeting with state officials, those two gauges will stay working, but two others may be closed, said Gregg Wiche, who runs the USGS North Dakota Water Science Center. Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker said the Red River gauges are crucial not just to weather forecasters, but to the public. Gauges are monitored at times on an hourly basis because “our level of protection is based on what the river is doing,” he said. In Illinois, 10 gauges have hit record high levels, with 53 others at or above flood levels, according to the USGS. James Lee Witt, who ran the Federal

38 die in mental hospital US applications for unemployment aid drop to 339K BY CHRISTOPHER need to be confident enough Most economists were a sharp drop from the previfire outside Moscow S. RUGABER in the economy to step up encouraged by Thursday’s ous four months, when hiring
BY NATALIYA VASILYEVA MOSCOW (AP) — A fire swept quickly through a psychiatric hospital outside Moscow early today, killing 38 people, most of them sedated and in their beds, officials said. The one-story brick-and-wood hospital building housed patients with severe mental disorders, Health Ministry officials said. An Emergencies Ministry official said the fire started in a wooden annex and then spread to the main brick building, which had wooden beams. The patients were under sedatives and most of them did not wake up, Yuri Deshevykh of the Emergencies Ministry told RIA Novosti. At least 29 people were burned alive, said Irina Gumennaya, a spokeswoman for the federal Investigative Committee. Investigators said the 38 dead included 36 patients and two doctors. They said a nurse managed to escape and save one patient, while another patient got out on his own. The Emergencies Ministry also posted a list of the patients indicating they ranged in age from 20 to 76. Gumennaya told Russian news agencies that most of the people died in their beds. Moscow region Governor Andrei Vorobyev said some of the hospital windows were barred. Gumennaya cited the surviving nurse as saying that the doors inside the hospital were not locked. WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits fell last week to a seasonally adjusted 339,000, the second-fewest in more than five years. The drop suggests that layoffs have declined and that job growth may pick up from last month’s sluggish pace. Applications for benefits dropped 16,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. The four-week average declined 4,500 to 357,500. Applications are a proxy for layoffs. When they decline, it signals that companies are cutting fewer jobs. Still, layoffs are only half the equation: Businesses also hiring. Many companies have been advertising more jobs but have been slow to fill them. Job openings jumped 11 percent during the 12 months that ended in February, but the number of people hired declined, according to a Labor Department report this month. The still-uncertain economy has made many companies reluctant to hire. Some employers appear to be holding out for perfect job candidates. In particular, companies say they can’t find enough qualified candidates for high-skilled manufacturing and engineering jobs. Other employers may not be offering high enough pay to attract the candidates they need. report on unemployment benefits, though some cautioned against reading too much into one week’s data. “The downtrend in unemployment remains on track,” said Jim O’Sullivan, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics. In March, employers added only 88,000 jobs. That was

Emergency Management Agency in the Clinton administration during the 1993 Mississippi flooding, said, “There are as many as nine states that will be impacted by spring floods and this not the time to make such harmful budget cuts.” Paul Higgins, a meteorologist who is associate director of the American Meteorological Society’s policy program, said cutting federal programs that help the country avoid natural disasters is “a costly mistake.” The gauges will be shut down at different times in different states, starting in May in Idaho and Maine, according to the USGS. Water levels are important for monitoring drought and keeping nuclear power plants on the river operating, USGS officials said. In Idaho, fisherman and whitewater river rafters use monitors to tell them where they should go, said Michael Lewis, head of the USGS Idaho Water Science Center.

averaged 220,000 per month. The unemployment rate fell to a four-year low of 7.6 percent from 7.7 percent in February. But the drop occurred because more people out of work stopped looking for jobs. The government doesn’t count people as unemployed unless they are actively looking for work.

Woman, 80, swallows diamond Pakistan to seal Afghan border BY MUNIR AHMED at Florida charity event ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistani officials say they’ll seal
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The idea behind the Tampa Women’s Club charity event was simple. For $20, you could buy a flute of champagne and a chance to win a one-carat, $5,000 diamond. Organizers of the Saturday event placed $10 cubic zirconia stones in the bottom of 399 of the 400 champagne glasses. The prized diamond, donated by Continental Wholesale Diamonds, was placed in the last. The problem? Eighty-yearold Miriam Tucker accidentally swallowed it. Tucker told local news media that she didn’t want to put her finger in the champagne, so she drank a bit. While laughing with women at the table, she realized she swallowed it. Embarrassed, she had to tell jewelers who were frantically searching for the winner. Already scheduled for a colonoscopy on Monday, she had a doctor recover the jewel.


their border with Afghanistan and restrict the movement of Afghan refugees on May 11 during parliamentary elections. Officials at the Interior Ministry and the election commission said today the measure is aimed at preventing terrorist attacks during the vote. Officials did not say how they would restrict the movement of hundreds of thousands of people spread out across the country or close the porous border. Pakistan announced similar measures in the past but failed to take action. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters. About 1.6 million registered Afghan refugees and 1 million other Afghans live in Pakistan. They are a legacy of their home country’s repeated conflicts. Pakistanis often accuse them of importing terrorism and crime.
