Westrich Furniture expansion adding jobs
BY STEPHANIE GROVES email@example.com DELPHOS — Westrich Home Furnishings is expanding its storeroom capacity by 14,500 square feet, which has created economic growth in the form of job creation. Owner Jack Westrich said with the new addition, the company will have more than 150,000 square feet of space, which will be utilized for merchandise storage. Future endeavors may include expanding the showrooms. Construction of the two-story warehouse has progressed quickly. Last week, crews placed metal siding on the north side of the building and this week, they have been finishing the concrete floors. “We should be in it [the warehouse] the latter part of the month,” Westrich said. Since beginning construction of the warehouse this past winter, the company has hired three new staff members. Westrich said that there is a potential to hire two more employees this fall. “We are definitely creating jobs,” Westrich stated. “The expansion has helped create the largest staff in the 76-year history of the store.” After attending a recent North Carolina furniture show, Westrich has found a couple of new lines to carry and plans on announcing the specifics this summer. The company is purchasing stock in volume, which in turn decreases the freight costs, adds buying power and results in customer savings. The shipments will arrive in June. “We want to be aggressive and continue to grow,” Westrich said. “We are excited to get it done, to better accommodate the Heath Troyer, construction worker from Alexander & Bebout, Inc., works on magging customer.” the edges of the concrete flooring of the new warehouse.

VAN WERT - Cindy Leis has spent almost four months as Van Wert County’s economic development director, and in that short amount of time she has been able to see a lot of good news. “The best news is that our companies are hiring,” she stated. “They may not be hiring as many people as we want, and maybe they’re not all the high-tech jobs we’re looking for, but Braun Industries had 20 job openings and most of those were high-tech engineering positions. Or you look at Elmco Engineering or Alliance Automation — these are pretty high-tech engineering positions. They may not be the big numbers like 50 jobs, they are more like 10. However, those 10 are pretty high-paying jobs.” Leis put together an overview of her first three months on the job and found plenty of good news, but also some Work continues on a bridge connecting the railhead on the north side of Van Wert with Van Wert County’s challenges for the area over the next few months.

Advocates consider Medicaid issue for ballot
By ANN SANNER The Associated Press COLUMBUS — Supporters of extending health coverage to more low-income Ohioans are exploring whether an expansion of Medicaid could be put to a statewide vote. The Center for Community Solutions has hired legal counsel for guidance on bringing a possible ballot issue to voters, said John Begala, executive director of the Cleveland-based policy organization. The organization also is contacting other groups to gauge their interest should signatures need to be gathered for an initiative. “It’s definitely doable — more likely in 2014 than 2013,” Begala said in an interview Wednesday. Republican Gov. John Kasich proposed the Medicaid expansion in his state budget plan, but GOP leaders in the Ohio House dropped it from the spending blueprint last month before sending it to the Senate. The Medicaid proposal hit another roadblock last week. Senate President Keith Faber announced his chamber’s version of the budget won’t include Medicaid expansion, but he said Medicaid “reform” is not dead. Meanwhile, Democrats in the Ohio Senate have introduced a bill that mirrors Kasich’s proposal, seeking to bring the idea to a stand-alone vote. See BALLOT, page 10

FBI: 3 removed backpack from Boston suspect’s room
BRIDGET MURPHY & DENISE LAVOIE Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — Three college friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were arrested and accused Wednesday of trying to protect him by going into his dorm room and getting rid of a backpack filled with hollowed-out fireworks three days after the deadly attack. The three 19-year-olds were not accused of any role in the bombing. But in a footnote in the court papers outlining the charges, the FBI said that about a month before the tragedy, Tsarnaev told two of them that he knew how to make a bomb. Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, both of whom came to the U.S. from Kazakhstan, were charged with conspiring to obstruct justice by concealing and destroying evidence. Robel Phillipos, who graduated from a Cambridge high school with Tsarnaev, was charged with lying to investigators about the visit to Tsarnaev’s room. According to the FBI account, just hours after surveillance camera photos of the Boston Marathon suspects were flashed around the world April 18, Tsnarnaev’s friends suspected he was one of the bombers and removed the backpack along with a laptop from Tsarnaev’s room at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. One of them later threw the backpack in the garbage, and it wound up in a landfill, where it was discovered by law enforcement officers last week, authorities said. In the backpack were fireworks that had been emptied of their gunpowder. The lawyers for the Kazakh students said their clients had nothing to do with the bombing and were just as shocked by the crime as everyone else. Phillipos’ attorney, Derege Demissie, said outside court: “The only allegation is he made a misrepresentation.” At a court appearance, the Kazakh students did not request bail and will be held for another hearing May 14. Phillipos was held for a hearing on Monday. If convicted, Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov could get up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Phillipos faces a maximum of eight years behind bars and a $250,000 fine. Three people were killed and more than 260 wounded on April 15 when two bombs exploded near the marathon’s finish line. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died after a gunfight with police days later. His 19-year-old brother was captured and lies in a prison hospital. Their mother has said the allegations against them are lies. Investigators have not said whether the pressure cooker bombs used in the attacks were made with gunpowder extracted from fireworks. Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov have been in jail for more than a week on allegations they were in violation of their student visas, one because he was skipping classes, the other because he was no longer enrolled. All three men charged Wednesday began attending UMass with Tsarnaev in 2011, according to the FBI. Tazhayakov was allowed to return to the U.S. from Kazakhstan in January despite not having a valid student visa, a federal law enforcement official told The Associated Press. His student visa status had been terminated because he was academically dismissed from the university, said the official, who was not authorized to discuss the case and spoke on condition of anonymity. The FBI said that before Tsarnaev’s roommate let the three friends into the room, Kadyrbayev received a text message from Tsarnaev that read: “I’m about to leave if you need something in my room take it,” according to the FBI. When Tazhayakov learned of the message, “he believed he would never see Tsarnaev alive again,” the FBI said in the affidavit. It was unclear from the court papers whether authorities believe that was an instruction from Tsarnaev to destroy evidence. Once inside Tsarnaev’s room, the men noticed a backpack containing fireworks, which had been opened and emptied of gunpowder, the FBI said. The FBI said that Kadyrbayev knew when he saw the fireworks that Tsarnaev was involved in the bombings and decided to remove the backpack “to help his friend Tsarnaev avoid trouble.” Kadyrbayev also decided to remove Tsarnaev’s laptop “because he did not want Tsarnaev’s roommate to think he was stealing or behaving suspiciously by just taking the backpack,” the FBI said. After the three returned to Kadyrbayev’s and Tazhayakov’s apartment with the backpack and computer, they watched news reports featuring photographs of Tsarnaev. The FBI said Kadyrbayev told authorities the three men then “collectively decided to throw the backpack and fireworks into the trash because they did not want Tsarnaev to get into trouble.” Kadyrbayev said he placed the backpack and fireworks along with trash from the apartment into a large

trash bag and threw it into a garbage bin near the men’s apartment, according to court papers. When the backpack was later found, inside it was a UMassDartmouth homework assignment sheet from a class Tsarnaev was taking, the FBI said. The court papers do not say what happened to the laptop. In a footnote, the FBI said: “Tazhayakov also informed the FBI agents that while eating a meal with Dzhokhar and Kadrybayev approximately one month prior to the marathon bombing, Dzhokhar had explained to Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov that he knew how to make a bomb.” Robert Stahl, an attorney for Kadyrbayev, said his client “absolutely denies the charges” and didn’t know that the backpack and fireworks were part of the bombing case. Kadyrbayev is “just as shocked and horrified by the violence in Boston that took place as the rest of the community is,” the lawyer said. He also denied that Kadyrbayev instantly recognized Tsarnaev’s photo, saying: “His first inkling came much later.” Tazhayakov’s lawyer, Harlan Protass, said Tazhayakov “feels horrible and was shocked to hear that someone he knew at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth was involved with the Boston Marathon bombing.” Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov lived at an off-campus apartment in New Bedford, about 60 miles south of Boston, and got around in a car registered to Kadyrbayev with a souvenir plate that read “Terrorista (hash)1.” The car was pictured on Tsarnaev’s Twitter feed in March.

The Herald – 3
in March 2013 much to the dismay of environmentalists. It means that Monsanto and other companies that supply the majority of the nation’s crop seeds can continue to produce GE products regardless of any potential court orders stating otherwise. Opponents of GE foods believe that giving such companies a free reign over the production of such potentially dangerous organisms regardless of judicial challenge is a bad idea—especially given how little we still know about the biological and ecological implications of widespread use of GE crops. Today more than 90 percent of the corn, soybeans, cotton, sugar beets and canola planted in the U.S. is derived from seeds genetically engineered by Monsanto and other companies to resist pests and thus increase yields. Aviva Shen of the ThinkProgress blog reports that, instead of reducing farmers’ use of toxic pesticides and herbicides, GE seeds are having the opposite effect in what has become a race to keep faster and faster developing “superweeds” and “superbugs” at bay. With Congress and the White House refusing to regulate GE crops, the court system has remained a last line of defense for those fighting the widespread adoption of genetic engineering—until now, that is, thanks to H.R. 933. Monsanto isn’t the only seed company heavy into genetic engineering, but it is the biggest and most wellknown and spends millions of dollars each year on lobbyists to keep it that way. Critics point out that the company has spent decades stacking government agencies with its executives and directors. “Monsanto’s board members have worked for the EPA, advised the U.S. Department of Agriculture and served on President Obama’s Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations,” reports the group Food & Water Watch. “The prevalence of Monsanto’s directors in these highly influential positions begs a closer look at how they’re able to push the pro-GE agenda within the government and influence public opinion.” “The judicial review process is an essential element of U.S law and serves as a vital check on any Federal Agency decision that may negatively impact human health, the environment or livelihoods,” reports Food Democracy Now! “Yet this provision seeks an end-run around such judicial review by preemptively deciding that industry can set its own conditions to continue to sell biotech seeds, even if a court may find them to have been wrongfully approved.” Another concern of safe food advocates now is getting the government to require food makers to list GE ingredients clearly on product labels so consumers can make informed choices accordingly. “Not only is [GE] labeling a reasonable and common sense solution to the continued controversy that corporations like Monsanto, DuPont and Dow Chemical have created by subverting our basic democratic rights,” adds Food Democracy Now!, “but it is a basic right that citizens in 62 other countries around the world already enjoy, including Europe, Russia, China, India, South Africa and Saudi Arabia.” EarthTalk® is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E - The Environmental Magazine (www.emagazine.com).

E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: What is the “Monsanto Protection Act” and why are environmentalists so upset about it? — Rita Redstone, Milwaukee, WI The so-called Monsanto Protection Act is actually a provision (officially known as Section 735) within a recently passed Congressional spending bill, H.R. 933, which exempts biotech companies from litigation in regard to the making, selling and distribution of genetically engineered (GE) seeds and plants. President Obama signed the bill and its controversial rider into law

Livestock Tagging set in June for Jr. Fair exhibitors
Information submitted Dates for livestock identification and weigh-ins have been announced. Sheep, Goat & Dairy Feeder Weigh in will be June 1 at the Beef Barn on the Van Wert County Fairgrounds. Exhibitors should enter off of Fox Rd and acquire their trailer number so they can be tagged in a timely fashion. Once parked, exhibitors should wait until their animals are identified before they cross the scales. Sheep and Goat exhibitors may directly enter the scales as their identification is their USDA scrapies tag. Species have been divided by time slots to assure that everyone is tagged and weighed in a timely manner. Sheep will weigh from 7:30-8:15 a.m.; goats from 8:15-9 a.m.; and dairy feeders from 9:30-10:30 a.m. All hog exhibitors must transport their animals to the fairgrounds for identification. Due to standards in cross contamination and liability, Jr. Fair Board members are no longer permitted to travel from farm to farm to identify animals. Exhibitors should enter in gate 4 entrance and will travel from the east end of the Jr. Horse Building through to the west end to exit out gate 5. Exhibitors will be required
to bring their hogs one of the following dates: from 5-8 p.m. on June 5 and from 8-11 a.m. on June 8. To minimize stress, please bring animals at the coolest time available. Animals will stay on trailers to be tagged as efficiently as possible. For more information, contact the OSU Extension Office at 419-238-1214 or the appropriate club/chapter leader.

When to start treating pond plant problems
BY JIM LOPSHIRE, OSU-Extension Agent Source: Ohio Pond News As winter fades into spring, the question most often asked is when to begin treatment of submerged aquatic plants. Pond owners need to be commended for being proactive in their management of aquatic plants but applying aquatic herbicides too early can potentially be wasting money. On top of that, pond owners may have to re-treat to attain the level of control they desire. Let’s discuss timing those spring applications of aquatic herbicides for maximum submerged aquatic plant efficacy. First and foremost, pond owners need to consider their pond uses and determine what level of control is desired. Aquatic vegetation can provide some tangible benefits in some cases. Ponds managed for fish and wildlife need some submerged aquatic plants as they provide valuable nursery areas, protection from predators, and food resources. People who have ponds used primarily for swimming or watering nursery stock tend to prefer less plants to avoid fouling swimmers feet or clogging pumps. How early is too early? It is generally recommended that aquatic herbicides not be applied until plants are growing vigorously but not yet reached high levels of biomass. Generally, this means holding off those applications until mid-May. Specifically, it is often wise not to treat submerged aquatic plants until water temperatures exceed 60 degrees and we know those temperatures will persist for several days. In cold water, plants tend to slow down metabolically and this can impact uptake of the product. If cold water persists, product decay might occur prior to the application achieving the desired results. We also have some submerged aquatic plants that are late germinators and an early application may allow them to still become a nuisance later on. Are there exceptions to the rule? Yes, there are two invasive submerged plant species from Eurasia, Curly-leaf pondweed and Eurasian watermilfoil, which are susceptible to aquatic herbicides in early spring. These two submerged plant species actively grow in colder water, particularly as water temperatures rise through the 50s. If you own a pond with either of these species, you might want to consider early season applications to control these species. This often requires earlyseason treatments several years in a row, but success can be attained. Also, please note that contact aquatic herbicides work more quickly than systemic herbicides and tend to work better in colder water. The pond owner might consider using a contact herbicide when water temperatures are around 60 degrees and saving systemic herbicides for use as water temperatures approach 70 degrees. Always read and follow instructions on the herbicide label.
Planting early may lead to problems with soil compaction
BY JAMES J. HOORMAN OSU-Extension Putnam County With a cold wet spring, farmers are once again facing a delay in spring planting. Generally, farmers try to get corn planted by May 10th and soybeans by mid-May to maximize yields. However, it does not pay to plant too early if the weather conditions and the soil are not fit. Farmers with large acreage may be tempted to get started a little early, but “mudding in” crops may result in hard compacted soils that get replanted. Two years ago in 2011, crop yields were high even though crops were not planted until June, because it rained all summer. Waiting for the soil to be fit is generally the best bet in the long run. Some soils (especially sandy soils or loamy soil) may tolerate planting when the soil is a little wet but clay soils are much more unforgiving. Plant growth may be hurt the entire season if the soil structure is damaged. Soil compaction reduces root growth which then results in reduced nutrient and water uptake. Seeds planted into compacted soils tend to have shallower roots and may be hurt by drought stress later in the summer. Drought stress increases on compacted soils due to less soil water storage and less root growth. Compacted soils have less water infiltration, resulting in more water run-off, causing nutrient loss and soil erosion. Soils that are compacted also have less aeration or less oxygen needed to mineralize or release soil nutrients. Compacted soils tend to dry out, reducing the microbial activity needed for optimal plant fertility. Plants also tend to suffer from increased diseases in compacted soils due to a reduction in beneficial microbes. Most disease organisms (Phytophthora, Rhizoctonia, Pythium, Fusarium) flourish under wet poorlydrained soil conditions enhanced by soil compaction. Denitrification or the loss of nitrogen to the atmosphere is greatly enhanced when water ponds on the soil surface. Denitrifying bacteria thrive under wet saturated soils with a lack of soil oxygen. Nitrogen loss from denitrification may be as high as 40 percent to 60 percent of the available soil nitrogen in heavy clay soils. The result is less nitrogen for plant production, especially for grasses like corn which do not produce their own nitrogen like the legumes such as soybean or alfalfa. The impact of soil compaction varies by soil type. Ideally, the bulk density of the soil should be between 1.10 to 1.40 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3). When you measure the bulk density; you are measuring the mass (weight) of the soil in a certain volume of soil. Clay soils that are dense and have a high bulk density hold less water and air than soils that are less dense (loamy or sandy soils). On clay soils, once the bulk density gets above 1.65 g/cm3, the root growth is greatly restricted. On sandy soils, due to bigger soil particles, root growth is not restricted until the bulk density is above 1.8 g/cm3.

Agribusiness eyes strong future with proactive efforts
Farmers may have their soils checked for bulk density when they send in a soil sample or use a simple soil penetrometer. Generally, soil penetrometers measure soil penetration in pounds per square inch (psi) and root growth is limited at 250 to 300 psi. Farmers generally have a good feel for when it is time to plant. Avoid planting if you can take soil and make a ball with your hand. Especially avoid planting if the soil is damp and you can squeeze water from it. With larger farms, often hired help may not be as knowledgeable as the older or established workers; so make sure you take the time to communicate this knowledge to younger or new help. Sometimes it may take only a day or two for the soil to dry out. All these factors may play a big part in getting higher yields. The yield loss from delayed planting may be small compared to the yield loss from planting too soon on wet soils that are damaged by soil compaction. Soils that have high levels of soil organic matter tend to resist soil compaction. They tend to have higher soil productivity and soil fertility. Soil organic matter buffers the soil from water stress by holding more water during a drought. Practices that conserve crop residues like no-till, that add manure, and/ or increase crop residues like growing cover crops will improve soil structure, reduce the impact of soil compaction, and improve planting conditions over time.

Jefferson routs Fort Jennings on the diamond
By JIM METCALFE email@example.com DELPHOS — Jefferson got rolling from the start of its baseball game versus Fort Jennings on a brilliant Wednesday afternoon at Wildcat Field. The Wildcats scored nine run in the bottom of the first inning en route to a 17-1 rout in a 5-inning non-conference contest. “We didn’t necessarily hit the ball that hard but I liked our approach. We put the ball in play and didn’t swing at a lot of bad pitches,” Jefferson head coach Doug Geary said. “Their pitchers weren’t throwing strikes, so we made them throw more pitches. We’re looking to build more and more confidence at the plate, on the mound and in the field.” The Musketeers (4-11) didn’t help their cause defensively with eight errors and numerous other plays they could have made. “You can’t beat anyone committing that many errors. I don’t care
if you’re 4-11 or 13-5; you won’t win games doing that,” Musketeer coach Eric Schwab said. “You have to make plays, so matter what.” Mark Metzger led off the game against Jefferson starter Austin Jettinghoff (1-0) with a single to left but was stranded at second. The Wildcats (13-6) forced
Musketeer starter Metzger to throw 47 pitches (22 for strikes) in the bottom of the first. They were the beneficiary of four errors, three walks and four hits, including a bases-clearing double to right field by Jordan Herron, an RBI double to deep left by Ross Thompson (3-for5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs), a run-scoring hit

Knights hold off Cougars, 5-2
By JIM COX DHI Correspondent CONVOY - Crestview right-hander Venice Roberts stifled Van Wert for six innings, then barely held the fort in the seventh, as the Knights escaped with a 5-2 non-league baseball win Wednesday afternoon at the Crestview Athletic Complex. Crestview is now 9-3, Van Wert 12-6. The game started off promising for the Cougars. With one out in the top of the first, shortstop Nathan Stoller swung at a third strike in the dirt and reached when the ball bounced by the catcher. Leftfielder Brant Henry lined a single down the left-field line and rightfielder Tyler Williams bounced a base hit through the third/short hole to fill the sacks. Pitcher Andrew Todd’s fly to shallow left center, however, was snagged by shortstop Bryce Richardson, runners holding, and catcher Ryan Stoller grounded into an inningending force-out, Richardson unassisted. Van Wert wouldn’t threaten again until the seventh inning. Meanwhile, Todd, a lefty, cruised through the first three innings, throwing 27 strikes out of 31 pitches, but ran into big trouble in the bottom of the fourth. First baseman Jake Harmon led off by smacking a line single to right. Centerfielder Cam Etzler laid down a perfect bunt and beat it out. Roberts’ bouncer was booted, scoring Harmon and putting runners at second and third. Rightfielder Nick Thomas blooped an opposite-field single to right, plating Etzler. Catcher Nate Owens then lined a base hit up the middle, bringing home Roberts. Second baseman Brock Rolsten bunted the runners over to second and third. Third baseman Isaiah Simerman’s deep sacrifice fly to center drove in Thomas and leftfielder Damian Helm’s single to left plated Owens — 5-0, Knights, after four. See KNIGHTS, page 7

Middle innings lift Big Green over WT
By KEVIN WANNEMACHER DHI Correspondent OTTOVILLE – For three innings, Wayne Trace and Ottoville used a solid defensive effort and quality pitching to blank each other on the scoreboard. However, the Big Green changed that in the fourth with four runs and never looked back and the Putnam County squad pulled away for a 10-3 victory over the Raiders. Ottoville plated four runs in the fourth before getting five more in the fifth. After Wayne Trace got one run on the board in the top of the sixth, the Big Green answered with a run in the home half to make it 10-1. The red, white and blue then plated two runs in the seventh to set the margin at 10-3. “Colby threw the ball well and it was a very good baseball game into the fourth,” noted Raider head coach Larry Pressler. “Then we got a couple of bad breaks there in the fourth that led to their four runs and we never did recover,” continued the Raider mentor. “We have to be able to battle through those
Lynn improves to 5-0, leads Cardinals over Reds, 4-2
By STEVE OVERBAY The Associated Press to break out of an 0-for-52 slump and also set down a perfect bunt in the sixth inning. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny applauded Lynn’s “bulldog tenacity.” “He just goes out there and does his job,” he said. “The starting pitching has been a constant for us and he’s helped lead the way. You can’t ask the starters to do more than they’ve done.” Lynn retired the first four and last five hitters he faced. “We had opportunities but he pitched out of it,” Cincinnati’s Todd Frazier said. “We’re scuffling a little bit but you’ve got to give him credit.” Trevor Rosenthal pitched a hitless eighth and Edward Mujica finished the 6-hitter for his sixth save in six chances.
breaks and we didn’t do a good job of that today.” Luke Schimmoeller led the Big Green with a pair of singles. Becker and Webber each picked up doubles for Ottoville while Miller chipped in a single for the green and gold. “We just have had every break go against us this year that could it seems like,” Pressler noted. “But we have to keep battling and working hard. We have shown we can play good baseball but we just have to find a way to put it together for seven innings.” Zach Mansfield, Cade Harvey, Andy Hicks and Jared Sherry all had singles for the red, white and blue. Speice took the loss on the hill, pitching 3 2/3 innings. The junior hurler gave up three hits, four unearned runs and five walks while fanning four. Cade Harvey, Jacob Dingus and Andy Hicks combined to finish the night, posting three strikeouts while allowing three and striking out three. Ottoville visits Continental for PCL action today. Wayne Trace returns to action tonight as the Raiders visit Fairview and will battle Lincolnview on Friday.
(Continued from page 6) That five-run lead appeared to be more than adequate until the top of the seventh. Cougar catcher Ryan Stoller led off with a ground single up the middle. After relief pitcher Mason Krugh flied to center for the first out, third baseman Cody Keirns reached on an error and second basemen Justice Tussing grounded an opposite-field single through the first/ second hole to fill the sacks. Centerfielder Joey Hurless brought home Stoller with a sacrifice fly to left and Nathan Stoller’s bouncer was thrown low, plating Keirns to make it 5-2. Henry filled the sacks with a single to left as Crestview fans started to get a bit nervous. Williams then brought a roar from the Cougar fans by scorching a line drive but it was right at shortstop Richardson, ending the suspense and the game. In his seven innings of work, Roberts yielded two runs, neither earned, on six hits, while striking out two and walking one. He threw 78 pitches (20 in the seventh inning), of which 50 were strikes. Todd worked five innings and took the loss, giving up five runs (2 earned) on nine hits, striking out three and walking nobody. Krugh threw one inning, giving up no runs and one hit, neither striking out nor walking a batter. Knight hitters were led by Thomas (3-for-3, 1 run, 1 run batted in), Helm (2-for-3, 1 RBI) and Owens (1-for-3, 1 run, 1 RBI). Henry was 2-for-4 for Van Wert.

Cubs chairman threatens to move team from Wrigley field
By JASON KEYSER The Associated Press CHICAGO — The owner of the Chicago Cubs threatened to move the team out of Wrigley Field for the first time publicly if his plans for a big, new video screen are blocked, saying Wednesday he needs new advertising revenue to help bankroll a $500 million renovation of the storied ballpark. Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts until now had said nothing as dire, despite months of contentious negotiations over how to keep everyone happy in sprucing up the 99-year-old stadium in the heart of Wrigleyville on Chicago’s North Side. “The fact is that if we don’t have the ability to generate revenue in our own outfield, we’ll have to take a look at moving — no question,” Ricketts told reporters after outlining renovation plans to Chicago business leaders. He added that he remains committed to working out a deal and it is difficult to imagine the Cubs playing anywhere else. But the fight over the Friendly Confines boils down to money and, of course, something unusual — it’s the Cubs, after all. By far the thorniest issue is the plan for a 6,000-square-
ST. LOUIS — Fast starts are becoming routine for Lance Lynn and the St. Louis Cardinals. Lynn won his 10th straight decision, allowing one run and five hits in seven innings Wednesday to lead the Cardinals over the Cincinnati Reds 4-2. Lynn (5-0) struck out five and walked two, improving to 10-0 in 10 starts and one relief appearance since losing to Milwaukee on Sept. 7. He became the NL’s first 5-game winner. “It’s early — but it’s fun so far,” Lynn said. He was 6-0 with a 1.48 ERA through May 7 last season, then went 12-7 with a 4.46 ERA the rest of the way. Leading the NL Central at the start of May for the sixth straight year, St. Louis has won six of its last nine. “To be able to pitch like this and win games, it feels good,” Lynn added. “I just go out there, concentrate and keep trying to improve every day.” Lynn retired the leadoff hitter six times. He slapped a fifth-inning single
Carlos Beltran hit his team-high seventh homer for the Cardinals and Matt Carpenter had three hits, including a go-ahead single in the sixth. Homer Bailey (1-3) gave up four runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings. He is 3-9 against St. Louis, including 0-5 with a 6.90 ERA at Busch Stadium. Brandon Phillips drove in both Reds’ runs, hitting a solo homer in the ninth. Beltran’s fourth-inning homer was his third in the 6-game homestand. “I’m not really trying to hit homers,” Beltran said. “It’s one of those streaks as a hitter where every ball you hit is in the air and has a chance of being a homer.” Phillips tied the game with an RBI double in the sixth. Allen Craig walked with one out in the bottom half, Yadier Molina singled him to second. Carpenter’s broken-bat single drove in the go-ahead run; Pete Kozma and Daniel Descalso chased Bailey with consecutive run-scoring singles. “In that sixth inning I don’t think they hit any ball solid,” Bailey said. “Right now, things are just not going our way.”
foot video screen over left field, a common feature in many major-league ballparks. The difference is that Wrigley Field — the second-oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball behind Fenway Park in Boston — is surrounded by privatelyowned clubs with rooftop bleachers whose owners object to any changes that could block their bird’s-eye views into the stadium. The rooftop businesses have been left out of discussions on the proposed upgrade but they feel they should have a seat at the bargaining table because they have a contract in which they share 17 percent of their revenue with the Cubs. Legal action is a possibility. Ricketts presented an architectural rendering of the video screen during his speech to the City Club of Chicago and insisted that the team’s own studies have shown it would have minimal, if any, impact on the views. He described the sign as “midsize” compared with those at other stadiums, though it is nearly three times as large as the scoreboard currently atop the centerfield bleachers. Another smaller sign with the name of a sponsor is planned for right field.

Matt Oechsle and Conner McCleery also added hits for the Lancers. “We played well defensively and relied on all of our players to get a good win for us.

Husband may be experiencing possible ‘midlife crisis’
By Bernice Bede Osol
FRIDAY, MAY 3, 2013 Your time-tested ways to generate earnings will continue to be the way to go in the year ahead. However, it wouldn’t hurt to also keep a weather eye peeled for good, solid investments. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Unless you have absolutely no choice, do not delegate a critical assignment to a surrogate. If you must do so, keep a constant check on the party in question. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -When pressed for answers about work or financial questions, you can be very resourceful. This gift can work wonders. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -For some reason, you’re likely to be unusually receptive to new concepts. This asset will prove to be quite valuable in helping you recognize someone else’s ingenious idea. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t hesitate to make a change to a current project if you feel it would help. Even if you’re uneasy, you’ll quickly find your comfort zone. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -You may get an opportunity to spend time with someone whom you don’t know well. This person could very quickly turn into a good friend. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- This is a good day to begin to distance yourself from an endeavor that has proved unproductive. You’ll find that once you get out, associates will likely do the same. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you’re wondering why a recent acquaintance is starting to warm up to you, the answer is simple. You no longer are judging this person as harshly as you once did. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A whole new way of adding to your resources might come about through an unusual set of circumstances. You’ll have to be on your toes to spot it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are about to enter a new cycle where your athletic skills could begin to peak. Take part in as many sporting activities as you can. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Should you amaze yourself in coming up with an ingenious concept for making or saving money, believe it and use it. It’s the real deal. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Everybody around you might require assistance or a backup, but not you. You’ll function best when operating independently. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you’re not afraid to experiment, you could be closer to a major achievement than you think. With only a few minor adjustments, you’ll have what you desire.

Dear Annie: My husband recently passed away after 40 years together. It’s been heartbreaking. While going through his desk, I found a checkbook for our joint trust account. He had written in it that he wanted to leave all five of our children a sizable amount of money. I have no problem with four of them, as they are all employed and responsible adults.

Leis also stated that she is looking at placing new signage for the Super Site and the city’s industrial parks, especially along U.S. 30, but also on Industrial Dr. This is part of an effort to draw new attention to the availabilities in Van Wert County. “We have property available, we have buildings available, we have education available, and we do have business incentives for people wanting to locate in the county and in the state,” she declared. With good reports from retail sales throughout the county, things are looking up in that sector. Leis said she is getting interest from some restaurant franchises which would bring in some lower-paying positions. “Those do fill a gap,” she conceded. “But bringing in manufacturing jobs will bring even more of the service-industry jobs as well.” Leis also mentioned the importance of keeping a well-trained work force and important role Vantage Career Center plays in that
area. The school not only trains high school juniors and seniors in a variety of programs, Vantage also serves over 1,600 adults per year. For Leis, an important piece of her job will kick off in earnest this month. The Business Retention & Expansion (BR&E) program provides vital communication between the county and area businesses. “That’s where a group of economic development stakeholders go out and visit our major industries and find out how their business is going, what they have planned for the rest of the year, and if they need any help doing anything,” explained Leis. Overall, Leis is enthusiastic about the growth trend and the possibilities which lie ahead for Van Wert County, even in the manufacturing sector which employs 26.8 percent of county workers. The weak spots economically can be mostly eliminated with the fulfillment of one need. Leis stated, “We still need new companies coming into Van Wert County with new jobs.” Time will tell how soon that problem will be solved.

No danger for NASA workers after Ohio evacuation
CLEVELAND (AP) — A NASA spokeswoman in Ohio says a substance that led to the evacuation of two buildings at a research facility in Cleveland turned out to be nonhazardous material. Eight employees from the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland were taken to a hospital Wednesday after being exposed to the substance. NASA spokeswoman Lori Rachul says the evacuations came after an employee complained about a skin irritation Wednesday after being exposed to a white substance in a drawer. NASA says the substance turned out to be a silicabased insulation material. The research center that sits near Cleveland’s Hopkins International Airport is named for Ohio space hero John Glenn.
GOP leader: Ohio right-to-work bills lack support
JULIE CARR SMYTH AP Statehouse Correspondent same entities targeted in a sweeping collective bargaining overhaul rejected by more than 60 percent of Ohio voters in 2011. Faber said the bill would be any easy target for criticism from Democrats. “The only purpose this discussion serves right now is to generate a bunch of breathless fundraising appeals from the Ohio Democratic Party,” he said. Indeed, House Democrats joined labor leaders in quickly challenging the proposals, saying they are built on myths about existing labor law and intended to undercut working people in favor of corporations. Democratic state Rep. Tracy Heard said Ohio workers already have the ability to opt out of union membership and those who do are not required to pay dues. Unions may collect what’s called a “fair share fee” to cover costs directly associated with collective bargaining, which can include the settlement of grievances, pursuit of workplace safety compliance, and various legal actions intended to benefit all workers included in the bargaining unit. “America’s right-to-work states are the poorest, most unhealthy and undereducated states in the union. That is a fact,” said Joe Rugola, director of the 35,000-member Ohio Association of Public School Employees. He said “right-wing extremist legislators” and corporate interests motivated by “a godless greed” were aligned to unravel the benefits and security unions bring. “Right-to-work attacks the heart and foundation of that notion and, because of that, it’s our intention with every fiber of our being to make war on those who want to make war on the American middle-class,” he said.

Faber’s statement followed a cautious lack of support for the bills by both Gov. John Kasich and Republican House Speaker William Batchelder. Maag said he doesn’t view the bills as either anti-worker or anti-union.
Begala said he’s hopeful the General Assembly and the Kasich administration will come up with a solution before petitions circulate for a ballot issue. “Our first preference is certainly not to go this route,” he said. “This is the last resort.” The Medicaid expansion is one of the key components of the federal Affordable Care Act. Of the nearly 30 million people in the U.S. expected to gain insurance coverage under the law, about half would be covered if Medicaid’s expanded. The federal law expanded Medicaid to cover low-income people making up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level, or about $15,400 a year for an individual. The provision mainly benefits low-income adults who do not have children and can’t get Medicaid in most states. A Supreme Court ruling allowed
states to decide for themselves whether to expand the program. Roughly 366,000 Ohio residents would be eligible for coverage under the Medicaid expansion beginning in 2014 if it’s approved. The governor has spent the last three months trying to persuade state lawmakers to go along with extending Medicaid coverage by drawing on a wide-range of people for support, from hospital executives to food bank operators. The idea has broad support from the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, consumer advocates, religious groups and AARP Ohio. Begala said he’s not sure what the wording for a ballot issue would look like, but emphasized he believed the Legislature had plenty of time this year to come up with a plan to provide health coverage to more Ohioans. “The bottom line on this is to get coverage for lower-income workers,” he said.
Dog bites off piece of Ohio prison inmate’s nose
ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS AP Legal Affairs Writer COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A rescue dog bit off part of an Ohio prison inmate’s nose after the prisoner tripped while chasing a ball during recreation and fell on the dog, according to a prison report. The inmate was playing handball on April 18 at a central Ohio inmate reception center when the accident happened, according to a report of the incident obtained by The Associated Press through a records request. The report said the dog, named Thor, bit the inmate in the face, “biting off his left nostril.” The dog was part of a program where inmates train abandoned dogs for adoption, Department of Rehabilitation and Correction spokesman Mike Davis said Wednesday. Several other inmates escorted the prisoner, not named in the report, to a medical clinic. The inmate was later taken to the emergency room at Ohio State University’s medical center and then placed in a prison medical unit, the report said. Inmates train dogs for four separate organizations at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient, including rescue groups for golden retrievers and border collies, according to the prisons system website. Thor was taken back to a shelter after the incident, the report said. The dog’s status and the inmate’s current condition weren’t immediately available Wednesday.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Two bills intended to strip Ohio unions of the ability to compel membership or to automatically collect fees from members to cover bargaining costs appeared dead on arrival at the Ohio Statehouse on Wednesday after a key legislative leader announced a lack of support for the measures among majority Republicans. Senate President Keith Faber issued an after-hours statement indicating he didn’t believe the right-to-work proposals of state Reps. Kristina Roegner and Ron Maag had either the support or the interest within his caucus to move forward. “We have an ambitious agenda focused on job creation and economic recovery, and Right to Work legislation is not on that list,” he said. The measures would prohibit any requirements that employees join or pay dues to any employee organization. They also establish as state policy “that each employee must be fully free to decide whether to associate, organize, designate a representative, or join or assist an employee organization.” “By introducing these two bills, we’re putting forward a proposal that we believe will make Ohio a freer and more prosperous place to work,” Roegner said. Roegner’s bill would apply to private-sector unions, while Maag’s would apply to public-sector unions — the
