Maas Delphos’ first female firefighter
volunteer class. I actually tried twice before to get on but I didn’t, so I went ahead and tried for my Level 1 over at Apollo and I got that. This time I finally got on,” she said. “There was another girl in my volunteer class but in my Level 1, I was the only female. It was challenging. They were all stronger than me, which was kind of a downer but I got through it.” Maas says her fellow firefighters have made her feel at home. “They’re really accepting, extremely nice and helpful with everything. I really enjoy being around them and working with them,” she said. “Being the first female was a bit nervewracking at first but it’s also really exciting. It feels really good, feels like a big accomplishment.” Maas Fire Chief Dave McNeal says he Breaking in to a profession usually and the rest of the department are sought by men, Maas has encoun- happy to have her aboard. “She’s a great person and she tered a few challenges along the way. “I went through Apollo for my shows up for squad duties,” he said.

HERALD
Delphos, Ohio “Everyone’s looking at her as one of us and we’ll treat her like we treat everyone else. She’s been an EMT with us since January 2010, so the firefighters have seen her at accidents and on other calls. We think hiring her was a pretty good decision.” Safety Service Director Greg Berquist says Maas was hired because she was a good candidate, regardless of gender. “We look at the application, character, availability. It’s slower finding people in the area that can commit. Response time is critical,” he said. “Her response was timely; it was a good opportunity to diversify in the department.” The position is what the city calls a “part-paid,” for which the employees are paid per call. Maas says she hopes to progress to full-time firefighter before moving on to other goals. See MAAS, page 10

With three years experience as an EMT with Delphos, Maas is no stranger to the district. She says she’s wanted to get into the emergency services field for as long as she can remember. “I’ve always been interested in the medical field but around eighth grade, freshman year, EMS really caught my eye,” she said. “I had decided on that and then I was talking to someone who suggested maybe becoming a full-time firefighter and I said yeah, that’s what I want to do.”

Ohio Senate pitches update to school funding plan
Associated Press COLUMBUS — Majority Republicans in the Ohio Senate proposed an education funding plan on Thursday that they said spreads more money to more school districts, as they look to leave their mark on the spending blueprint. The Senate plan would increase state spending on K-12 education in the twoyear budget by more than $717 million compared to the current budget, which ends June 30. Schools would see an additional $141.6 million in direct state aid under the GOP-controlled Senate plan, compared to the funding formula the House passed in its version of the budget bill. Senate President Keith Faber told reporters the money stems from expected adjustments to state revenue and Medicaid caseload projections. “It is a significant investment across the spectrum,” said Faber, a Celina Republican. Faber cautioned that the education proposal is still a work in progress. Additional changes could come Tuesday in the Senate Finance Committee. A full Senate vote on the budget is planned for June 6. Senators also added $54 million to help schools meet a state mandate that students must know how to read before leaving third grade. Early childhood education would also see an additional $30 million over the budget period. State aid school districts get for each student would see a boost compared to Gov. John Kasich’s proposed figures — up from Kasich’s $5,000 per student to $5,745 in the first year and $5,800 in the second year of the budget. The Senate is also con-

sidering whether to set aside another $50 million for the governor’s proposed Straight A fund, which will deliver grants to districts for innovation and efficiency measures. The chairman of the Senate finance panel’s education subcommittee said senators planned to continue to evaluate changes to the Straight A fund over the weekend. See FUNDING, page 10

David Earl ‘Dave’ Robinson
Aug. 2, 1934-May 28, 2013 David Earl “Dave” Robinson, 78, of Fort Wayne, surrounded by his family, peacefully went to his Heavenly Father on Tuesday, May 28. He was born on Aug. 2, 1934, in Putnam County to David H. and Ada E. (Sherrick) Robinson, who preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife, Dorothy J. (Truesdale) Robinson; daughters, Darcy J. (William) Foley and Trudy A. (Matthew) Robinson-Foley; granddaughter, Kaitlinn Foley; grandsons, Keaney and Felix Robinson-Foley; four sisters; and many nieces and nephews. He is also preceded in death by one sister. Mr. Robinson graduated from Gomer High in 1952 and earned a business associates degree from International Business College. After serving in the Army in Heidelberg, Germany, from 1957-59, he married “Dotty.” He then went on to be an accountant for General Telephone and retired after 31 years. However, his lifelong passion revolved around farming and the relationships he built as a result. He loved the trials and triumphs farming brought and lent a hand to anyone in need on the farm or elsewhere. As a member of the Silver King of Yesteryears Tractor Club, he enjoyed restoring and showing his tractor collection. Similarly, he was a member of the Cadillac and Lasalle Club (CLC). He was a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, a former member and treasurer at Bethany Lutheran Church and a supporter of various charitable organizations, including The American Red Cross. He was sad when his bout with cancer eight years ago meant he could no longer give blood since he was only a few pints short of the 100pint Club. Robinson loved spending time with his family, especially winter holidays in Northern Michigan. He will be remembered as a man that was always there for his family and would do anything to enhance their futures. During the last eight years, time with his three grandkids brought great joy and motivated him to continue his struggle so they’d remember papa and know his love. A funeral service will begin at 11 a.m. Monday at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church 1126 S. Barr St., Ft. Wayne, with visitation one hour prior. Burial will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Walnut Grove Cemetery, Delphos. Visitation will also be held from 2-8 p.m. on Sunday at Elzey Patterson Rodak Home For Funerals, 6810 Old Trail Rd., Ft. Wayne. Memorials may be made to The American Red Cross in memory of David E Robinson. Visit www.elzey-pattersonrodakfuneralhome.com to leave online condolences.

Minaj, Carey not returning to ‘American Idol’
AP Entertainment Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — Nicki Minaj is following Mariah Carey out the door on “American Idol.” The hip-hop diva posted Thursday on Twitter that it was “time to focus on the music,” just a few hours after Carey announced she wasn’t coming back to the Fox talent competition so that she could focus on her upcoming tour. Minaj and Carey became new judges on “Idol” this season, along with country singer Keith Urban. Minaj and Carey frequently bickered on the show, creating a feud that was uncomfortable for both viewers and contestants. Fox and “Idol” producer FremantleMedia said in a statement Thursday that Minaj was “a superstar who brought a level of honesty and passion” to the show and that Carey “will remain an inspiration to ‘Idol’ hopefuls for many seasons to come.”

Parents encouraged to discuss safe driving with teen, review insurance
Information submitted COLUMBUS — With the warm weather upon us and more young drivers on the roadways with their friends, Ohio Lieutenant Governor and Department of Insurance Director Mary Taylor is urging parents and family members to discuss driving safety with their teen driver. Taylor also said it’s important to conduct an insurance review to determine the family has adequate insurance protection. “It’s important that parents discuss appropriate driving behavior with their children to help keep them safe behind the wheel,” Taylor said. “In addition, talking with the family’s insurance agent or insurance company about the right auto insurance will help keep the family financially protected in case of an accident.” Car accidents are the leading cause of death for US teens and mile for mile, they are involved in three times as many fatal crashes as all other drivers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Research shows inexperience and immaturity combined with speed, not wearing seat belts and distracted driving aggravates this problem. Parents may also be unsure how to best approach insuring a teen driver. Most insurance companies consider unmarried drivers under the age of 25 a higher-risk, which translates into higher auto insurance premiums. To assist parents, Taylor offers tips to help protect their driving teens and get the best value for their auto insurance dollar: Lay the Ground Rules: Establish driving rules for safe driving, such as not speeding, seat belt usage, minimal number of passengers, no mobile phone texting (now illegal for teens in Ohio as is talking on the phone for those 17 and under) and the amount and time of day driving is permitted. Details about Ohio’s new distracted driving law are available at www.bmv.ohio.gov/texting ban.stm. Shop Around: Ohio has a competitive personal auto insurance market but no two insurance companies charge the same rates. Compare costs and coverages between insurers since having a teen driver in the household does greatly affect the family’s auto insurance premium. Take advantage of discounts that various insurance companies offer, such as good student discounts. Most insurers also offer discounts for having more than one car on a policy and having both your auto and homeowners insurance with the same company. Purchasing a Vehicle for your Teen Driver? The difference in the cost of auto insurance for a teen driving a newer, expensive sports car versus a modestlypriced economy car with liability coverage only can be significant. If shopping for an additional vehicle for your teen to drive, the cost of insurance should

be part of the conversation. Make sure you discuss options with your insurance agent or insurance company. They can provide quotes on the cost of insurance for the various vehicles you may be considering to purchase. Consider Revising Deductibles, Coverage: Whether purchasing an additional car or sharing the family car with your teen driver, you can reduce your auto insurance premium costs by raising the deductibles on physical damage (collision and comprehensive) coverages. Determine if you can afford to absorb a larger portion of your loss in the event of an accident. Also, consider eliminating physical damage coverages on older vehicles - unless a lienholder, such as a bank, requires the coverage to be maintained. Your insurance agent or company will be able to calculate the premium savings so that you can make an informed decision. Ohioans with insurance questions can call the Department’s consumer hotline at 1-800-686-1526. Information, including the Department’s new auto insurance consumer guide and young drivers guide to auto insurance is also available at www.insurance.ohio.gov. You can follow the Ohio Department of Insurance on twitter @OHInsurance and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ OhioDepartmentoflnsurance.

Panel approves $1 billion rebate to Ohio employers
COLUMBUS — Directors of Ohio’s insurance fund for injured workers on Thursday unanimously approved Gov. John Kasich’s proposal to send rebate checks ranging from $5 to more than $3 million to businesses, local governments and schools. About 210,000 businesses and public employers would see one-time rebates in June or July under the $1 billion plan signed off on by the board of the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. Money for the one-time rebate stems from solid investments by the agency, which provides workers’ compensation insurance for Ohio employers and covers about two-thirds of the state’s workforce. The agency said its net assets have grown to $8.3 billion. The rebate is separate from a court dispute over employer payments. NEWSPAPER NOTE: The state REPRODUCTION is appealing 133LPI minimum required, a judge’s March decision 150LPI recommended.

Van Wert featured in national publication
Information submitted VAN WERT — Van Wert has once again received national attention for its success in promoting the Lincoln Highway yard sale. The May/ June issue of Midwest Living Magazine contains a rather lengthy article about the popularity and growing number of multi-state yard sales. Larry Lee, director of the Van Wert Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, was contacted by Midwest Living editors in April of 2011 about their interest in making sure Van Wert was included in the article. Lee spent several weeks communicating with the editors and eventually arranged for them to meet with him in August 2011 during the Lincoln Highway yard sale. Two reporters, a photographer and Lee met at Balyeat’s Coffee Shop for lunch and an interview. “They were certainly impressed with the community, with the neatness of Main Street, the friendliness of the people and were really interested in learning more about Balyeat’s, saying it was a ‘page out of the past’ and unlike anyplace else they had experienced on their travels throughout the Midwest,” Lee said. “They wanted to know more about our history, the library, the courthouse, how the yard sale got started and its economic impact on the community.” The story shares several stops the group made along the sale route, the people they met and some of the more unusual items they discovered. “The photographer was fascinated with Balyeat’s. Each of us had to order something different for lunch that day,” Lee said, “and before we could eat, the plates had to be arranged just-so on the counter in order

awarding $860 million in repayments from the fund to employers the judge says were charged excessive premiums for nearly a decade. The bureau has said the money involved in the lawsuit has been set aside. The president of group representing the workers in the lawsuit acknowledged the rebate program would help Ohio employers reinvest in businesses. However, Earl Stein, president of Pay Us Back Ohio BWC Inc., also said that if the bureau wanted to show its commitment to economic development, “it should immediately refund the $860 million the court ordered them to repay 270,000 employers.” Stein is also a plaintiff in the classaction lawsuit. Local governments and schools in Ohio could see almost $113 million in rebates, according to the Kasich administration.

In May of 2010, American Profile, a weekly supplement that appears in several small-town newspapers – including our own Times Bulletin; — ran a story about Van Wert and the Highway 127 yard sale.

4 – The Herald

IRS Commissioner Steven Miller was already having a rough day at the House Ways and Means Committee when one particularly hot question shoved him into the lower depths of a church-state inferno. The question concerned a letter sent by IRS officials in Cincinnati to the Coalition for Life of Iowa, linked to its application for tax-exempt status. “Please explain how all of your activities, including the prayer meetings held outside of Planned Parenthood, are considered educational,” said the letter, which was released by the Thomas More Society, which often defends traditional religious groups. “Organizations exempt under 501(c) (3) may present opinions with scientific or medical facts. Please explain in detail the activities at these prayer meetings. Also, please provide the percentage of time your organization spends on prayer groups as compared with the other activities of the organization.” Welcome back to the religious liberty wars of 2013, in a scene captured by the omnipresent eye of C-SPAN. Questioning this government entanglement in issues of doctrine and even worship, Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) asked: “Would that be an inappropriate question to a 501(c)(3) applicant? The content of one’s prayers?”

Deeper into the church-state inferno

On Religion
Miller, already on his way out as IRS leader, had stressed he would not address individual cases. Thus, he replied: “It pains me to say I can’t speak to that one either. ... Speaking outside of this case, which I don’t know anything about, it would surprise me that that question was asked.” IRS officials have, of course, confessed that they inappropriately targeted conservative groups -- especially those with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names -- for extra scrutiny when they sought nonprofit status. Allegations of abuse or harassment have since broadened to include groups conducting grassroots projects to “make America a better place to live,” to promote classes about the U.S. Constitution or to raise support for Israel. However, it now appears the IRS also challenged some individuals and religious groups that, while defending key elements of their faith traditions, have criticized projects dear to the current White House,

such as health care reform, abortion rights and same-sex marriage. At the heart of these fights are questions often raised about a variety of groups on the left and the right. Was it partisan politics when African-American churches worked to promote economic justice during campaigns when those efforts helped President Barack Obama? What about liberal religious groups that stressed voting green on environmental issues during campaigns when those efforts often led to support for Democrats? In recent years, religious conservatives have been accused of turning projects linked to their teachings on abortion and marriage into vaguely partisan efforts to oppose Obama, while indirectly supporting his opponents. Thus, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the global Samaritan’s Purse humanitarian project faced IRS review -- for the first time ever. During the most recent White House campaign, the Graham organization ran ads against gay marriage in North Carolina. In one, the elder Graham was quoted saying: “I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman.”

In a letter to Obama, the Rev. Franklin Graham claimed: “I believe that someone in the administration was targeting and attempting to intimidate us. This is morally wrong and unethical -- indeed some would call it ‘un-American.’ ... I do not believe that the IRS audit of our two organizations last year is a coincidence -- or justifiable.” Meanwhile, on the religious left, the Rev. Barry W. Lynn of Americans United for Separation of Church and State is convinced that the younger Franklin is -- no coincidence at all -- drawing justifiable scrutiny because of “his disgust with President Obama.” While the Graham ads didn’t mention politicians by name, this was “clearly an effort by one of the Graham families’ taxexempt groups to directly affect the outcome of the election,” he argued in the “On Faith” forum at The Washington Post website. “If this brazen action led to IRS scrutiny, I’m fine with that. My only regret is that the agency didn’t yank the BGEA’s tax-exempt status for doing so. “The problem isn’t that the IRS is being too aggressive in this area,” said Lynn. “It’s that its enforcement efforts have been sporadic, unfocused and tepid.”

Jays miss chances early, fall in Regional semifinal
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com HAMLER — Missed opportunities. In whatever sport one is talking about, missed opportunities have a strong tendency to come back and bite you in the end. That was what happened to St. John’s on a warm, sunny and windy Thursday afternoon in its Division IV baseball semifinal at Patrick Henry’s Garrold Parratt Field. The Blue Jays left the bases loaded in both the first and second innings, with a chance to potentially blow the game wide open against Northwood, and the Rangers rallied behind two solo blasts by Justin Rohrs to grab a 4-3 victory. The Rangers (18-10) advance to take on the winner of the second game between McComb and Tinora at a time to be determined today. The Jays (13-15) got it rolling with a 2-spot in the top of the first against Ranger ace and complete-game winner (128 pitches, 78 for strikes) Nick Russell. With one down, senior Ryan Buescher (2-for-3, 1 run) singled off second baseman Jack Romstadt’s glove for a single and classmate Troy Warnecke was walked. An out later, senior Clay Courtney was hit by a pitch to load the bases and with junior T.J. Hoersten up to bat, Russell uncorked a wild pitch that scored Buescher and moved runners up. An out hence, Hoersten got aboard via a throwing error, plating Warnecke for a 2-0 lead. Senior Drew short by Warnecke, with Geise getting tagged at home trying to score and putting runners on the corners and then another hit batter (senior Andrew Metzger). However, a strikeout of the next batter ended the threat. That seemed to help Russell settle down after that. “We got runners on all day. We just couldn’t come through with the big hit enough to get more of them home; what we hit too often didn’t drop,” first-year St. John’s coach Ryan Warnecke explained. “That was big not to get more runs in the first two innings but we still had confidence. Curtis didn’t get a chance to warm up on the mound during pre-game and he never looked comfortable; he didn’t have his best stuff. We knew they could hit the ball but those two home runs, without the wind, likely would have been fly-ball outs.” Northwood stranded Jacob Davenport on second in the second frame. The Jays got a 2-out infield chopper up the gut by Buescher in the fourth. Rohrs then went yard for the first time in the bottom of the fourth, getting the ball up into the wind blowing toward right field and clearing the fence at the 310-foot area for a 2-2 tie. Brandon Hoffman was left stranded on second base. Hoersten walked with two outs in the St. John’s fifth and advanced on a wild pitch but went no farther. Segura was walked with two down in the Ranger fifth. See JAYS, page 7

St. John’s got a 2-out rally going in the top of the seventh of Thursday’s Regional semifinal, with senior Clay Courtney sliding safely into second when Northwood’s second baseman mishandles a TJ Hoersten grounder. Courtney later scored to make it 4-3 but the Blue Jays couldn’t get any closer. (Delphos Herald/Tom Morris) Wagner was hit by a pitch to reload the sacks but the Jays left them that way. Northwood got a run back in the home half against St. John’s senior starter Curtis Geise (7-2; 101 pitches, 59 for strikes) on a leadoff walk to Evan Perkins, a bunt single through

the infield (Josh Segura) that put runners on the corners and a wild pitch that got Perkins across home plate. The Jays again loaded the sacks in the second: a 1-out infield hit to deep short by Geise, a hit batter (Buescher), an infield hit to deep

Sports Briefs
Associated Press James scores 30, Heat take Game 5, 90-79 rebounds for the Pacers, who got 22 points from Roy Hibbert and 17 from David West. —— Schwartzel takes lead at Memorial DUBLIN — Charl Schwartzel made sure one hole didn’t ruin an entire round Thursday in the Memorial. Schwartzel hit the ball so consistently well at Muirfield Village that the former Masters champion twice had stretches of four straight birdies. And when he made a double bogey with an 8-iron in hand and his ball on a tee toward the end of the round, he got rid of that bad taste with one last birdie for a 7-under 65. Schwartzel had a 1-shot lead over Scott Piercy and was six shots clear of 5-time winner Tiger Woods. Woods hit the ball well enough to be much closer, though he missed too many birdie chances and didn’t make up any ground on the par 5s. Woods was one shot worse than 53-year-old Fred Couples, the Presidents Cup captain at Muirfield Village this fall, and one shot better than 14-year-old Guan Tianlang, who has played more PGA Tour events than Woods over the last two months. Rory McIlroy, meanwhile, might be headed for another short week at the tournament Jack Nicklaus built. After opening with a birdie, McIlroy didn’t putt nearly well enough to atone for some loose shots, finishing with a 78. Bill Haas and Matt Kuchar each had a 68, the best score of the afternoon. Josh Teater, Russell Henley and Kyle Stanley were at 67, while Charlie Wi, Matt Jones and Michael Thompson shot 69. Former PGA champion Keegan Bradley shot 71.

MIAMI — LeBron James scored 30 points, Udonis Haslem made his last eight shots on the way to a 16-point night and the Miami Heat used a dominant third quarter to turn things around and beat the Indiana Pacers 90-79 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals on Thursday. Mario Chalmers scored 12 and Dwyane Wade added 10 for the Heat, who lead the series 3-2 and will look to close it out at Indiana on Saturday night. The Heat ousted the Pacers in six games in a second-round matchup last season. Paul George had 27 points and 11

Kazmir, big 4th inning lead Indians past Reds 7-1
Associated Press batting .204 in May while Raburn was in a 3-for-24 skid. Bailey, who threw 45 pitches in the fourth, lasted 3 2/3 innings, his shortest outing of the season. The right-hander allowed seven runs — tying his season high. Kazmir, a 2-time All-Star with Tampa Bay, had his career sidetracked by arm problems that began in 2009. He was traded to the Angels that season but was 9-15 in 2010 and appeared in only one game the following year before being released. The Indians signed him to a minor-league contract in January after he pitched in an independent league last season. Kazmir, who was 0-1 and allowed 11 earned runs in 13 innings in his past three starts, won for the first time since May 9. Cincinnati loaded the bases with one out in the third. Derrick Robinson led off with a single and singles by Shin-Soo Choo and Cesar Izturis loaded the bases. Votto, who came into the game batting .417 in May, hit a slow roller to the right side and Kipnis started the double play. Votto went 0-for-4, snapping his careerlong 18-game road hitting streak. Bailey retired the first seven hitters before Gomes reached on an infield hit. Third baseman Todd Frazier charged the slow bouncer but couldn’t make the barehanded grab. See INDIANS, page 7

CLEVELAND — Scott Kazmir allowed one run in seven innings and the Cleveland Indians scored seven runs with two outs in the fourth to defeat the Cincinnati Reds 7-1 on Thursday. The fourth-inning rally, which featured six straight run-scoring hits, gave the Indians a split of the annual Ohio Cup interleague series. The Reds won in Cincinnati on Monday and Tuesday before the Indians took both games when the series shifted to Cleveland. The Reds have lost nine in a row at Progressive Field and haven’t won in Cleveland since May 22, 2010. Kazmir (3-2), recording his longest outing in the majors in three years, dodged a bases-loaded jam in the third when he got Joey Votto to bounce into an inning-ending double play. Run-scoring singles by Michael Brantley and Yan Gomes, an RBI double by Ryan Raburn, a 2-run double by Michael Bourn and an RBI single by Jason Kipnis chased starter Homer Bailey (3-4) in the fourth. Asdrubal Cabrera added a run-scoring double off Alfredo Simon. Jay Bruce drove in Cincinnati’s only run with an RBI single in the sixth. The Indians carried a 5-game losing streak, in which they scored 14 runs, into

the series. Cleveland had also dropped seven out of eight but the bats woke up when the Reds hit town. Cleveland homered twice Wednesday, including a game-clinching 3-run homer by Jason Giambi, and fell one run off their biggest inning of the season Thursday. Cabrera was hit by a pitch to start the fourth and took second on Carlos Santana’s 1-out single. After Mark Reynolds struck out, Brantley, who was in a 1-for-15 skid, singled sharply through the left side to score

Cabrera. Gomes followed by lining a single to left, scoring Santana. Raburn’s double to left scored Brantley before Bourn drove a double into the left-field corner for two more runs and a 5-0 lead. Kipnis, who was in a 4-for-34 slump, singled to right to score Bourn and finish Bailey. Cabrera doubled to right against Simon. Brantley and Kipnis weren’t the only Cleveland hitters to break out of slumps in the inning. Santana came into the game

Jays
(Continued from page 6) Geise got aboard on an error with one down in the top of the sixth and moved up on a wild pitch but could get no farther. Rohrs commenced the Northwood sixth by doing the same thing he had done two frames earlier, just clearing the fence around the 320-foot mark to take the lead for good for his crew. Myles Habel; singled, advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Davenport (an error on the play allowed both runners to be safe). A hit batter (Hoffman) and a 1-out hit batter (Jordan Schell plated Habel. The Jays made it interesting in the seventh. With one down, Metzger beat out an infield nibbler that hugged the third-base line but was forced at second by Courtney. He advanced on a Hoersten booted grounder and scored as Wagner lined a single into right, putting runners on the corners. However, Russell got the final batter looking to end the Blue Jays’ spring season. “We ended up in the Regionals; that’s a credit to the kids,” Coach Warnecke added. “We could have packed it in at any time because we struggled, especially early, but the kids battled all season and slowly turned it around.” The Jays also bid “adios” to seniors Andrew Grothouse, Craig Klausing, Aaron Beck and Dylan Stump.

Computer talk is cheap
The phone hadn’t rung all day, which was a blessing because we’d been catching up on a thousand and one things around the house. For us, spring cleaning involves some heavy lifting -- and that’s just the dust bunnies. As a reward, we’d decided to treat ourselves to dinner out. Sue went upstairs to clean up and the moment I heard her turn on the shower, the phone rang. Dorothy the Computer from our prescriptionby-mail company was on the line. “We have some important questions about ... Sue’s ... prescription. Is ... Sue ...there? Please say ‘yes’ or ‘no.’” “Yes, she’s here but ...” “Is this ... Sue? Please answer ‘yes’ or ‘no.’” “No, but I’m her husband ...” “Please have ... Sue ... call 1-800-55555536829734013276, extension 12 for some very important information about your prescription. Thank you.” When I think of

The Village Idiot
the 23 hours and 55 minutes a day that neither of us are in the shower, I wonder how it is possible that the computer will call the exact moment one of us turns on the water. I can see how a computerized phone call makes it easier for my health care provider; what I can’t see is how it makes things easier for me. It is a oneway call disguised as a conversation. The only time you should have to answer a question with only “yes” or “no” is when you’re on “Judge Judy.” I want my wife to get her medicine, and I don’t want her to have to call 1-800-55555536829734013276, extension 12. Just let me speak to a human. Or a better computer program. When I call someone, the first words out of my mouth are usually, “Is this a good time for you to talk?” I’m pretty sure a computer could learn how to say that. And if the answer is no, the computer could ask, “When is a good time to call you?” “Never” should be one of the choices. The only good thing about computer phone calls is that I don’t feel guilty about hanging up on a computer. I don’t think that I have hurt its feelings. What bothers me is that they could be done so much better. How many times has this happened to you? The computer asks you to type in your account number “for faster service.” Finally, 20 minutes later when you finally get to speak to a

human, the first thing out of his mouth is, “Can I please have your account number?” I never type in my account number anymore, and it almost always gets me faster service. By not typing it in, the computer says, “I’m sorry, I don’t recognize that. Let me transfer you to someone who can help you.” I have to phone in test results every few weeks to one of my health care providers. The first thing their computer says to me is to call 911 if this is an emergency. Is there someone on this planet that would call 1-800-55555536829734013276, extension 12 first if they were having an emergency? It’s like explaining to plane passengers how to buckle a seat belt. If they don’t already know how to do that, how are they ever going to figure out the toilet? Somehow, we can tell the difference between a computer’s voice and an actual human. But every day they are getting better and more realistic. A computer recently ended one call to me by saying “thank you,” and I said “thank you” back. Was it just out of habit, or for a moment, could I not tell the difference? And what happens when the day comes that we really can’t tell the difference? I think we’ll always be able to tell, even if the computer voices are perfect. How many humans are going to start a conversation by saying, “If you’d like to speak to me in Spanish, press 9” in perfect Spanish? No matter how human they sound, that’s got to be a dead giveaway. by Distributed Universal UClick for UFS

Now I worry that she is trying to come between my husband and his father, who is ill. My mother-inlaw doesn’t return our phone calls or tell us when Dad is in the hospital. We hear everything through a third party, sometimes days after it happens. How do I handle this? –Daughter-Out-Law Dear Daughter: Perhaps if your husband had set stricter boundaries with more dire consequences years ago, this situation would be better now, but there are no guarantees. Some people are beyond reasoning with. It’s time to step back and let your husband handle his mother. As long as she believes she can control him, she will do so. Your husband should try to get his information about Dad through other sources

Because of a strong desire to help others, you could be busier than ever in the months ahead. Your good intentions will yield many rewards. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There’s a strong chance you could participate in a worthwhile endeavor initiated by two people. It isn’t likely you’ll be invited to take part; you will have to ask. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- To gather some support for an important matter, you need to present your case as ingeniously as you can. Don’t put any limitations on your thinking. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Certain problematical situations can be turned to your advantage. You’ll need to show much initiative and not a little pluck, but you can do it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -The game isn’t over until the last play. Keep this in mind if you find yourself involved in a competitive development. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -A spur-of-the-moment invitation could put you in the company of some very pleasant new acquaintances. This can be a fun day. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Though you prefer to function independently, today you’re likely to accept a last-minute invitation. Surprisingly, you’ll be happy to be a team player. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Things are looking pretty good in terms of favorable financial activity. Don’t stop working on new ways to add to your bank balance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The right knowledge is one thing, the right connections are another. Fortunately, you’ll do very well, because you’ll have both. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It’s time to look at a problematic situation in a fresh way. Innovation will lead to much-needed progress.

Ohio St president jabs Notre Dame, Catholics, SEC Big asteroid swinging by
AP Legal Affairs Writer COLUMBUS (AP) — The president of Ohio State University said Notre Dame was never invited to join the Big Ten conference because the university’s priests are not good partners, joking that “those damn Catholics” can’t be trusted, according to a recording of a meeting he attended late last year. Gordon Gee also took shots at schools in the Southeastern Conference and the University of Louisville, according to the recording of the December meeting of the school’s Athletic Council that The Associated Press obtained under a public records request. The university called the statements inappropriate and said Gee is undergoing a “remediation plan” because of the remarks. Gee was on a long-planned family vacation and unavailable for comment, Ohio State spokeswoman Gayle Saunders said. He apologized in a statement released to the AP. “The comments I made were just plain wrong, and in no way do they reflect what the university stands for,” he said in the statement. “They were a poor attempt at humor and entirely inappropriate. There is no excuse for this and I am deeply sorry.” Gee, who has taken heat before for uncouth remarks, told members of the council that he negotiated with Notre Dame officials during his first term at Ohio State, which began more than two decades ago. “The fathers are holy on Sunday, and they’re holy hell on the rest of the week,” Gee said to laughter at the Dec. 5 meeting attended by Athletic Director Gene Smith, several other athletic department members, professors and students. “You just can’t trust those damn Catholics on a Thursday or a Friday, and so, literally, I can say that,” said Gee, a Mormon. The Big Ten had for years courted Notre Dame, but the school resisted as it sought to retain its independent status in college football. In September, the school announced that it would join the Atlantic Coast Conference in all sports except football but would play five football games each year against ACC teams. In the recording, Gee referred specifically to dealing with the Rev. Ned Joyce, Notre Dame’s longtime executive vice president, who died in 2004. “Father Joyce was one of those people who ran the university for many, many years,” Gee said. Gee said the Atlantic Coast Conference added Notre Dame at a time when it was feeling vulnerable. “Notre Dame wanted to have its cake and eat it, too,” Gee said, according to the recording and a copy of the meeting’s minutes. Notre Dame spokesman Dennis Brown called the remarks regrettable, especially the reference to Joyce, “who served Notre Dame and collegiate athletics so well and for so long.” Gee contacted Notre Dame’s president, the Rev. John Jenkins, to offer an apology, which was accepted, Brown said Thursday in an email, declining to say when the apology was made. Notre Dame has a storied collegiate football history and is perhaps the nation’s pre-eminent Roman Catholic university. Ohio State, with about 56,000 students on its main campus, is among the country’s biggest universities, and it has its own long football tradition. A message was left with Smith, the Ohio State athletic director who attended the December meeting and who also is a 1977 Notre Dame graduate. NCAA President Mark Emmert declined to comment, saying he hadn’t heard the remarks. Ohio State’s Athletic Council meets monthly during the fall, winter and spring and makes recommendations on athletic policy including ticket prices. December’s meeting was at Ohio Stadium. Gee was introduced by Athletic Council then-chairman Charlie Wilson, and Gee’s name and introduction are included in written minutes of the meeting. His comments drew laughter, at times loud, occasionally nervous, but no rebukes, according to the audio. Ohio State trustees learned of Gee’s “offensive statements” in January, met with the president at length and created the remediation plan for Gee to “address his behavior,” board president Robert Schottenstein said in a statement. Comments by a university leader about “particular groups, classes of people or individuals are wholly unacceptable,” Schottenstein said. “These statements were inappropriate, were not presidential in nature and do not comport with the core values of the university.” Gee has gotten in trouble before for offhand remarks, most recently during a memorabilia-for-cash and tattoos scandal under football coach Jim Tressel’s watch.

Earth has its own moon
AP Science Writer

WASHINGTON — Astronomers getting their first closeup glimpse of a giant asteroid about to whiz by Earth found a surprise bonus rock. A smaller moon asteroid is circling the larger space rock, an unusual but not unheard of space phenomenon. The larger 1.7 mile-wide rock named Asteroid 1998 QE2 will be the closest to Earth today at 4:59 p.m. EDT. Don’t worry, though. It will still be 3.6 million miles away. NASA scientist Paul Chodas (Ch’OH’duhs) said it’s one of the larger asteroids to swing by Earth and is the size of the space rock that wiped out the dinosaurs. The smaller rock was discovered Wednesday night by astronomers using radar to look at QE2. The moon asteroid is about 2,000 feet wide. That’s about average for such nearEarth objects.

DC marks Superman’s 75th anniversary with logo
By MATT MOORE Associated Press What to get Superman for his 75th birthday? DC Entertainment’s starting with a new logo. The company, part of Warner Bros. Entertainment, unveiled the new logo Thursday in honor of Superman’s 75th anniversary. It ties in the iconic character’s familiar red and blue colors, along with his everpresent cape, and the legend “75 Years.” Its first appearance is on the cover of “Superman Unchained” by DC co-publisher Jim Lee and writer Scott Snyder on June 12, along with a new animated short being produced by Zack Snyder, portions of which will be shown at San Diego Comic-Con in July as a sneak-peak. Snyder’s finished version, which will pay homage to Superman, will debut in full later this summer. Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara said Thursday the new logo is part of a yearlong celebration of what he called the “first super hero” whose exploits have jumped from the pages of comic books to radio, television, movies (the latest incarnation, “Man of Steel,” is due out this summer) and video games, among other media. “We are proud to commemorate this milestone with exciting entertainment across the entire Studio and across the globe, ensuring this enduring icon reaches new generations of audiences,” he said of the character created in Cleveland, Ohio, by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and who debuted on the cover of “Action Comics” No. 1 in June 1938. Diane Nelson, president of DC Entertainment, called Superman “undeniably the greatest super hero in the world and likely the most influential comic book character of all time.”

Notable words from the National Spelling Bee
Associated Press OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — A look at some unusual, difficult or otherwise noteworthy words from the 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee. — SMELLFUNGUS — a critic or faultfinder, taken from a novel by 18th-century absurdist Laurence Sterne. Gokul Venkatachalam, 12, of Chesterfield, Mo., spelled it correctly. — MALACOPHILOUS — adapted to pollination by snails. “I don’t know if that’s possible,” said aspiring comedy writer Amber Born, 14, of Marblehead, Mass. After spelling the word correctly, she leapt for joy and dashed back to her seat. — CYANOPE — a person with fair hair and brown eyes. Caleb Miller, 13, of Calhoun, La., asked if it came from the Greek word “ops,” meaning eye. Told yes, he responded, “Thank goodness.” He still misspelled the word, going with p-s-i-a-n-o-p-e. Told the correct spelling, he said, “Oh, you’ve gotta be kidding me.” — BILBOQUET — a device having a cup or spike at the top of a stick to which is attached a ball on a string. This word looked like it might trip up 11-year-old Vanya Shivashankar of

Poll: 2 in 5 women would consider parenting solo
BY JENNIFER AGIESTA and JOCELYN NOVECK, Associated Press As Christy Everson was nearing age 40, she made a decision: She wanted to have a child, even though she was single and it meant doing it all alone. Her daughter, conceived via a sperm donor, is now 2 1/2 years old, and Everson hopes to have a second child. “Was it worthwhile? Well, I’m thinking of doing it again, aren’t I?” she says. Everson and women like her are part of a shift in American society. An Associated Press-WE tv poll of people under 50 found that more than 2 in 5 unmarried women without children — or 42 percent — would consider having a child on their own without a partner, including more than a third, or 37 percent, who would consider adopting solo. The poll, which addressed a broad range of issues on America’s changing family structures, dovetails with a recent report by the U.S. Census Bureau that single motherhood is on the rise: It found that of 4.1 million women who’d given birth in 2011, 36 percent were unmarried at the time of the survey, an increase from 31 percent in 2005. And among mothers 20-24, the percentage was 62 percent, or six in 10 mothers. The AP-WE tv poll also found that few Americans think the growing variety of family arrangements is bad for society. However, many have some qualms about single mothers, with some two-thirds — or 64 percent — saying single women having children without a partner is a bad thing for society. More men — 68 percent — felt that way, compared to 59 percent of women. The survey found broad gender gaps in opinion on many issues related to how and when to have children. One example: At a time when the can-you-have-it-all debate rages for working mothers, women were more apt than men to say having children has negatively impacted their career. And this was true especially among mothers who waited until age 30 or older to have children. Fully 47 percent of those mothers said having a child had a negative impact on their careers. Of women overall, 32 percent of mothers reported a negative effect, compared with 10 percent of men. For Everson, who lives in a suburb of Minneapolis and is now 44, being the only parent means daily responsibilities that naturally suck up some of the time she used to spend on her career as a financial consultant.

But she got it right and advanced to the finals. — CABOTINAGE — behavior befitting a second-rate actor. There was no acting from Eva Kitlen, 14, of Niwot, Colo., who struggled with this word, breathing quickly into the microphone, before getting it wrong. “Can I maybe get a different word?” she asked. “I hope you get a different word,” pronouncer Jacques Bailly responded. She did not. — TENERAMENTE — a musical direction meaning “tenderly.” Grace Remmer, 14, of Jacksonville, Fla., who plays violin, chuckled with relief after being asked to spell this word, which helped propel her to the finals. She still asked Bailly to use it in a sentence, which turned out to be a gem: “The piano teacher repeatedly encouraged the Incredible Hulk to try to play the lullaby teneramente.” — OLEACRANON — the clinical term for the funny Associated Press bone. Emily Keaton, 14, of Pikeville, Ky., missed this word by adding an “h” after the “c.” She jumped back with surprise at ANAHEIM, Calif. — Two dry-ice bombs exploded at the sound of the bell that ended her spelling bee career.
