City looking to fill Reser’s building
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor DELPHOS — Another business leaving Delphos was announced on Monday. Quick on the heals of the announcement of the ALCO store closure in August came the news Reser’s Fine Foods will close in September. While still figuring out what the ramifications of the retail store’s closure will be, city officials are now looking at nearly $1 million dollars a year in lost revenue in utilities for Reser’s as well as income tax losses. “We had no insight with regards to Reser’s leaving,” Safety Service Director Greg Berquist said. “We met with the plant manager several times last year and they were bringing in another line and more people “With a municipality this small, it is hard to lose that much revenue “We can take on a and recover,” he said.

We’ve got the information out there and now we’re competing with every other municipality in the Midwest to fill the facility.” Mayor Michael Gallmeier said city officials will be looking carefully at the 2014 Budget. “There are going to be cuts and rate increases,” he said. “How else can you make up a million dollars? There’s not a lot of fluff in the budget now. We’ve been cutting and cutting for the last five years to get by.”

OTTOVILLE — One big family picnic, or better known as the annual Ottoville Immaculate Conception Parish Festival, will take place Sunday with many favorite events returning and some new events on the schedule as well. The church has hosted the Parish Festival for many years as a fundraiser to earn money for the upkeep of the church, Parish Center and for the education of the kids, said Lenora Ball, chairperson for this year’s festival. “I remember going to it as a kid and my parents helping out with it,” Ball said. “It’s been going on for over 50 years at least.” The big money-maker for past festivals has been the family-style dinners. Ball said she expects to continue that tradition this year. See FESTIVAL, page 10

Today is Friday, July 19, the 200th day of 2013. There are 165 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 19, 1943, Allied air forces raided Rome during World War II, the same day Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini met in Feltre in northern Italy. On this date: In 1553, King Henry VIII’s daughter Mary was proclaimed Queen of England after pretender Lady Jane Grey was deposed. In 1812, during the War of 1812, the First Battle of Sackets Harbor in Lake Ontario resulted in an American victory as U.S. naval forces repelled a British attack. In 1848, a ground-breaking women’s rights convention convened in Seneca Falls, N.Y. In 1870, the Franco-Prussian war began. In 1903, the first Tour de France was won by Maurice Garin. In 1952, the Summer Olympics opened in Helsinki, Finland. In 1961, TWA became the first airline to begin showing regularly scheduled in-flight movies as it presented “By Love Possessed” to first-class passengers on a flight from New York to Los Angeles. In 1979, the Nicaraguan capital of Managua fell to Sandinista guerrillas, two days after President Anastasio Somoza fled the country. In 1980, the Moscow Summer Olympics began, minus dozens of nations that were boycotting the games because of the Soviet military intervention in Afghanistan. In 1989, 111 people were killed when a United Air Lines DC-10 crashed while making an emergency landing at Sioux City, Iowa; 185 other people survived. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush joined former presidents Ronald Reagan, Gerald R. Ford and Richard M. Nixon at ceremonies dedicating the Nixon Library and Birthplace (since redesignated the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum) in Yorba Linda, Calif. In 1993, President Bill Clinton announced a policy allowing homosexuals to serve in the military under a compromise dubbed “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Clinton fired FBI Director William Sessions, citing “serious questions”

LONDON (AP) — The mystery has been solved. A British law firm admitted Thursday that one of its partners inadvertently revealed that J.K. Rowling had authored a mystery novel, “The Cuckoo’s Calling.” The Sunday Times newspaper revealed over the weekend that the “Harry Potter” author had penned the book under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

The newspaper said it had received a tip-off on Twitter, and there was speculation that Rowling or her publisher were behind the revelation — which has sent sales of the thriller skyrocketing. But law firm Russells said Thursday that one of its partners, Chris Gossage, had let the information slip to his wife’s best friend, Judith Callegari — the woman behind the tweet. Her Twitter

It said that while Gossage was culpable, “the disclosure was made in confidence to someone he trusted implicitly.” Russells, a specialist in entertainment law, said it had informed Rowling and her agent once it learned what had happened. “We can confirm that this leak was not part of any marketing plan and that neither J.K. Rowling, her agent nor publishers were in any way involved,” the statement said. “The Cuckoo’s Calling” had garnered good reviews but sold in the hundreds of copies since being published in April, ostensibly as the first novel of a former soldier. Since Rowling was outed as the author, it has topped bestseller lists, with publisher Little, Brown and Company commissioning a new printing of 300,000 copies.

Holocaust memorial approved for Ohio Statehouse
it shows that Ohio opposes discrimination based on race or religion. The design from artist Daniel Libeskind features a split limestone path toward two, upright panels. Cutouts on the panels are positioned to reveal a broken, six-pointed Star of David. The plan includes having a story from a survivor of the Nazis’ Auschwitz death camp embossed on the panels. A stone wall that sits along the path would contain an engraved quote honoring the death camp liberators: “If you save one life, it is as if you saved the world.” Board Chairman Richard Finan voted against the memorial, telling reporters he would have been fine with “a reasonable memorial, something smaller” on the grounds. “But this is just too much to the Jewish religion,” Finan added. He said the state could get sued for violating the separation of church and state.

VAN WERT — Volunteers from Kingsley United Methodist Church chose one of the hottest days of this week to start work on the floor for this year’s Habitat home located at 320 Thorn St. A massive build day is planned for July 27. Everyone is welcome to come and volunteer their time and talents to this project. We are requesting that skilled laborers come at 7:15 a.m. and general volunteers come at 8 a.m. Lunch and plenty of drinks will be provided for all volunteers but we would ask you to bring a lawn chair. If you have never been involved with a one-day “raise the roof” build, it is truly something you’ll never forget. It’s amazing what teamwork will do and it doesn’t matter your skill level — we’ll find something for you to do. We would like to extend a huge “thank you” to Jim Gibson, his sons and grandsons for laying the block foundation. Absolutely awesome job guys and in record speed! Volunteers are needed this Saturday morning to help finish the floor. If you would like to volunteer your building expertise on July 27 you can give Dave Markward at call at (419) 203-7127. If you can provide food items, please call Sue Lichtle at (419) 605-2270. Hope to see the Van Wert citizens come out and help this year’s family realize their dream of being homeowners.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A Holocaust memorial will be built on the grounds of the Ohio Statehouse despite concerns from the head of an oversight board that the project is “inappropriate” for the Civil War-era site and could get the state ensnared in a constitutional legal dispute. The privately funded $1.8 million memorial is believed to be the first Holocaust memorial planned for the grounds of any U.S. statehouse. The project’s design was approved Thursday by the state’s Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board, which oversees and maintains the Ohio Statehouse. A construction timeline has not yet been set. At a ceremony two years ago, Gov. John Kasich proposed building a memorial to teach people, he said, about man’s inhumanity to man. Jewish groups praised the Sauder Village is hosting its annual “Explore the Crafts memorial’s approval, saying event this Saturday. (Photo submitted)

Joyce Garver Keller, the executive director of the Ohio Jewish Communities, said she didn’t think the depiction of the Star of David promotes any religion. And it’s appropriate for the memorial to be placed near a government institution, she said. “The Holocaust did not begin in the camps,” Keller said. “It did not begin with smokestacks and ovens. It began in the halls of government where legislation was passed that allowed the expulsion of Jews and others who the Nazis didn’t support and the murder of millions of people.” Libeskind, who lives in New York, was picked by an artist selection committee of representatives from government, the arts and the Jewish community in Ohio. He was born to Holocaust survivor parents and designed the master plan for the World Trade Center, Berlin’s Jewish Museum and Dresden’s Museum of Military History.

Wisdom and well-being
Proverbs 2:10

“For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.”

Philosophers have almost always touted the connection between wisdom and happiness. Aristotle, by defining us as rational animals, comes close to guaranteeing that through the correct exercise of reason we might become happy. But, Aristotle was aware that our passions and appetites could lead us astray, since they are essentially irrational, and so for Aristotle, the good life requires the correct use of reason in practical matters, what he calls “phronesis” or “practical wisdom.” This practical wisdom is the result of a lifetime of experience. Aristotle says that no young person can be truly wise in the ways of life because he has not experienced enough of it. Likewise, the book of Proverbs is addressed to the moral education of the youth, repeatedly saying such

things as “Hear, my son, your father’s instruction,” and “My son, do not forget my teaching.” (Proverbs 1:8 and 3:1) The connection between practical wisdom and well-being has been empirically verified by the psychologists Richard Nisbett, Igor Grossmann and others. They defined practical wisdom as consisting of 5 aspects: 1) willingness to resolve conflict; 2) willingness to search for compromise; 3) recognition of the limits of personal knowledge; 4) awareness that more than one perspective on a problem can exist; and 5) appreciation of the fact that things may get worse before they get better. It turns out that the wiser we are, when judged by these criteria, the happier we are. – Christopher Simon

Delphos Minor League Championship


Zach Johnson handles the brown links of Muirfield
Associated Press GULLANE, Scotland — A blue sky and a gentle breeze usually means ripe scoring conditions at the British Open. Just not on the brown links of Muirfield. Zach Johnson handled it better than anyone Thursday. Helped along by a 45-foot eagle putt and only one bogey despite trouble lurking around every pot bunker, Johnson had a 5-under 66 for a 1-shot lead, the first time he’s been atop the leaderboard at any major since he rallied to win the Masters six years ago. Tiger Woods more than survived the late end of the draw, after the sun had thoroughly baked out the crispy greens and allowed only eight of the 20 rounds under par. He knocked one putt clear off the green but 10 one-putts — most of them for pars — carried him to a 69, a good start in his bid to end his 5-year drought in the majors. “The golf course progressively got more dried out and more difficult as we played,” Woods said. “And I’m very pleased to shoot anything even par or better.” And for all the talk about Muirfield’s men-only membership, at least the club doesn’t discriminate against age. Mark O’Meara, the 56-year-old who won his claret jug in 1998 at Royal Birkdale, shot a 67 and nearly tied Johnson for the lead until his 25-foot birdie putt on the 18th took a hard spin out of the cup. Another former champion, 54-year-old Tom Lehman, opened with a 68. See GOLF, page 7

Bengals still hearing about first ’Hard Knocks’
BY JOE KAY Associated Press CINCINNATI — Four years after the Cincinnati Bengals were featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” show, coach Marvin Lewis still hears about his profane tirade to his team after a poor preseason game. The Bengals are ready to get the NFL talking about them again. NFL Films crews started shooting video on Thursday for the first episode of the show, which follows a team through training camp. The Bengals are the second team to be featured twice during the show’s eight seasons — the Dallas Cowboys also made a second appearance. Cincinnati had quarterback Carson Palmer and receiver Chad Johnson — then going by the last name of Ochocinco — when it was on the 2009 show. “Hard Knocks” won two Emmy Awards that year for editing and production. Ross Ketover, an executive producer for the show, presented Lewis with one of the show’s Emmys on Thursday. “It’s not really the trophy that we’re actually striving for,” Lewis said, laughing, “but we’ve got some accomplishments to do along the way. But that’s awesome.” Many teams refuse to do “Hard Knocks” because it shows interactions between players, coaches and front-office managers in otherwise private moments. The Bengals had a few such moments during the 2009 show. One of the lasting lines was delivered by Lewis in the locker room after a preseason loss. Unhappy with a ragged performance, Lewis berated his team as the cameras rolled and screamed at the players to “reach down inside and be a (profanity) pro.” Lewis regretted that the moment would be a first for the franchise. It’s a much different team from 2009. The flashy Johnson got a lot of the attention in training camp that year, and not always in a positive way. Palmer and an assistant coach were caught saying that the receiver didn’t try hard every play in camp. Last year, “Hard Knocks” featured the Miami Dolphins, who released Johnson during training camp after his arrest in a domestic battery case. NFL Films will have five camera crews at Paul Brown Stadium and eight remote-controlled cameras set up in team meeting rooms. Fans got an inside look at how the front office operated in 2009 after two tight ends got hurt during camp and Brown suggested a “wild thought” of moving a defensive end to the tight end spot. Nobody offered a contrary opinion, the move was made and it didn’t work out. There are several intriguing story lines heading into camp. Quarterback Andy Dalton is in the spotlight after two poor showings in the playoffs. Linebacker James Harrison came to Cincinnati as a free agent after the Steelers let him go. Cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is scheduled for trial Aug. 19 on an assault charge. Right tackle Andre Smith missed all of the voluntary off-season workouts and a mandatory minicamp. Plus, the Bengals will be in Atlanta for four days, practicing against the Falcons before playing them in a preseason game Aug. 8. The focus this camp is mostly about Cincinnati’s young stars and how they develop. “The quality is just as good (as 2009) and it’s a totally new roster,” Ketover added. “For us, that summer, I think, took the series to a new level. So we’re thrilled to be back here.”

was shown on television. He said on Thursday that he still gets comments about it. “I got one yesterday,” he said. “If you took the time to think about it, it’s probably something you would have done in the confines of your own group, but that’s something that just happens in the moment.” Numerous teams shy away from the show for that reason. The Bengals think another appearance will be popular with their fans. Lewis said he was fine with whatever owner Mike Brown decided. “People have asked ‘why?’ and it’s a couple of things,” Lewis explained. “No. 1, from the standpoint of our fans, the comments people have made to me talking about what a great opportunity it was for them to get to know the Cincinnati Bengals players when we did it a few years ago in 2009. “And from the standpoint of me as the coach: We have to go win football games, regardless of who is watching.” The Bengals haven’t won a playoff game since the 1990 season, a streak of futility that ties for seventh-longest in league history. The Bengals are 0-4 in the playoffs under Lewis, losing in the opening round at Houston each of the last two seasons. They’re trying to reach the playoffs for a third straight season, which

(Continued from page 6)

(Continued from page 6) It was an eclectic group who broke par, from major champions to players making their British Open debut. What they all had in common was finding a way to get through a firm, fast and frightening test at Muirfield that figures to get even harder if the Royal & Ancient doesn’t put some water on the links course. Phil Mickelson opened with a 69 and felt like he got off easy by playing in the morning. Mickelson was concerned about some hole locations being too close to the edge of slopes and pleaded with the R&A to let go of its ego and “just set the course up the way the best players can win.” Some of the best did just fine. “Anytime you shoot under par in an Open — or a major, for that matter — you have to be putting at least somewhat decent,” Johnson said. “And I putted great. I made some nice birdie putts and obviously that one for eagle. But I struck some really nice, solid par putts. That’s what you’ve got to do to stay in it.” Rafael Cabrera-Bello of Spain joined O’Meara at 67, while the group at 68 included Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker, who each have contended on Sunday over the last two years in the Open. Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera, who lost in a playoff at the Masters in April, and 19-year-old Jordan Spieth were in the group at 69. It was a beautiful day along the Firth of Forth. And it was hard work. No one felt safe until the ball stopped bouncing along the crusty fairways and no one was sure when that would happen. “I haven’t seen anything like this,” said Snedeker, who tied the 36-hole Open record a year ago at Lytham. “I’ve played in, I think, five Opens. This is completely new to me — foreign to see a 2-iron going 300 yards. You have got to be wary of how you’re shaping your golf ball and what shot selections you’re using on the greens.” O’Meara thought he hit a reasonable bunker shot on the 15th until it kept rolling — and rolling — off the green and into another bunker. “They get so glassy and crispy around the holes,” Graeme McDowell, who played with Woods, said after a 75. “You literally can see 300 footprints around the hole from all the players and caddies

that have been out there today. They just get really shiny, and really glassy. I couldn’t single out a pin that I thought was unfair. But if you got on the wrong side of them, they could make you look very, very silly.” Yes, there was plenty of that. Rory McIlroy never looked comfortable and it caught up with him. After missing left of the 12th green, he chipped it up the slope and watched it roll back down to his feet. His next chip was long and he wound up with double bogey. On the 15th hole, his putt to the back pin rolled well past the hole and into a bunker for another double bogey. A bogey-bogey finish gave him a 79, his highest score at the Open since that 80 in the vicious wind of St. Andrews in 2010. At least he had some company. Luke Donald, another former No. 1 player in the world, had a double bogey and a triple bogey two holes apart on the back nine. He shot 80. Nick Faldo celebrated his 56th birthday with a return to the links where he won two of his three claret jugs. He shot a 79, but still enjoyed the nerves and the emotions of seeing the gallery lining both sides of the fairway in his first Open in three years. Lloyd Saltman got the 142nd Open off to a dubious start when it took him three tee shots to get his ball in play. He made a quadruple-bogey eight. Some eight hours later, Woods hooked his opening tee shot so far left and into grass so deep, he took a penalty shot for an unplayable lie. Woods hit into a bunker but blasted out to 4 feet to escape with bogey. He made four birdies in his round, including a 25-foot bender behind the 13th hole. But it was the clutch putting that kept him going. Dustin Johnson played the three par 5s in 4-under, yet what made him smile was a par. From left of the par-3 seventh green, he chipped between two bunkers and watched the ball ride the rounded face of one, roll precariously near the top of another and settled 4 feet away. “That,” he said, “was sweet.” Mickelson, coming off a win at the Scottish Open on a links-styled course at Castle Stuart, rolled in three big putts early in his round and kept it together with great lag putts for par when he ran into what he called “technical difficulties.” He rallied with a pair of late birdies, only for his last attempt from 15 feet above the hole on the 18th to slide some

six feet by for a three-putt bogey. Even so, Lefty was pleased to be done as the greens turned brown. “I got very lucky to play early today because as the day wore on and we got to the back nine, about a third of every green started to die and become brown,” he said. “And the pins were very edgy, on the slopes. The guys that played early had a huge, huge break. Because even without any wind, it’s beyond difficult.” It was tough all day. Ninety-eight players in the 156-man field had at least a double bogey on their scorecards. Former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover might have summed it up best when he took to Twitter after opening with an 80. “Muirfield 1, Me 0.” Walshe beats heat in Marathon LPGA first round

SYLVANIA — Alison Walshe, chasing her first victory in four years on the LPGA Tour, shot a 6-under 65 to take a 1-stroke lead Thursday after the opening round of the steamy Marathon Classic. Walshe, in the top 20 on tour in putting statistics, needed only 22 putts to negotiate hot and humid Highland Meadows. Paula Creamer, the 2008 winner of what used to be known as the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic, played later in the day and shot a 66 that left her tied with teenager Lexi Thompson and Canadian Jessica Shepley. Top-ranked Inbee Park birdied her final two holes for a 67. Defending champ So Yeon Ryu had a 68, and Se Ri Pak, a five-time winner of the tournament, opened with a 69.

Controlling blood sugar levels avoids kidney damage
and waste matter from blood so they get flushed out of the body when we pass urine. And they keep important proteins and other useful substances inside the body. They also regulate fluid, salt and other minerals, so that just the right amounts of each remain in the body. The filtering work is done by glomeruli, delicate networks of tiny blood vessels. When the blood vessels that form the glomeruli -- the filters -- thicken, they begin to fail at their job. Protein leaks into the urine. Fluid, salt and some other minerals build up in the body. In addition, the damaged glomeruli stop filtering out wastes and toxins reliably. These wastes and toxins build up in the bloodstream, causing damage to tissues and organs throughout the body. (I’ve put an illustration on my website, The best way to avoid diabetes complications is to keep your blood sugar levels as close to normal as possible.

Adjust your therapy if your HbA1c level (which measures average blood sugar levels over a threemonth period) is 7 percent or higher. And keep your blood pressure under 130/80 mm Hg. This, too, helps prevent kidney damage. Many years ago, I had a patient, Jane, with diabetes who was showing early signs of kidney disease. She was not very careful about measuring her blood sugar, nor about taking her diabetes medicines. Since early kidney disease generally doesn’t cause symptoms, she felt fine. I introduced her to another patient of mine, Barbara, who also had not been careful about her treatment, and who went on to develop end-stage kidney failure. She required kidney dialysis treatments three times a week to keep her alive. Barbara told Jane: “These dialysis treatments are what’s keeping me alive. But it’s still a pain in the ***** to lie here three times a week for several hours while the machine works on my blood. And I don’t feel all that good. I’m am alive, but that’s about it.” Jane started to get more serious about her diabetes and never developed kidney failure. She was glad I’d introduced her to Barbara.

of blood sugar. Left untreated or poorly treated, diabetes can cause serious complications, such as eye, nerve and kidney damage. An important cause of all these complications is high blood sugar levels over many years. Other factors, such as high blood pressure, also contribute. But the longterm consequences of diabetes are not inevitable. They can be prevented through tight blood sugar control. High levels of blood sugar injure the walls of small blood vessels. They thicken and leak. The vessels may eventually clog, blocking blood flow to vital organs. You asked about kidney disease. The main function of the kidneys is to filter out toxic substances

It won’t be established overnight, but it will eventually become one of your major alliances. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -New heights can be achieved if you have the motivation and desire to reach for the stars.

Once-mighty Motor City files for bankruptcy
ED WHITE Associated Press DETROIT — Once the very symbol of American industrial might, Detroit became the biggest U.S. city to file for bankruptcy Thursday, its finances ravaged and its neighborhoods hollowed out by a long, slow decline in population and auto manufacturing. The filing, which had been feared for months, put the city on an uncertain course that could mean laying off municipal employees, selling off assets, raising fees and scaling back basic services such as trash collection and snow plowing, which have already been slashed. “Only one feasible path offers a way out,” Gov. Rick Snyder said in a letter approving the move. Kevyn Orr, a bankruptcy expert hired by the state in March to stop Detroit’s fiscal free-fall, said Detroit would continue paying its bills and employees. But, said Michael Sweet, a bankruptcy attorney in Fox-Rothschild’s San Francisco office, “They don’t have to pay anyone they don’t want to. And no one can sue them.” The city’s woes have piled up for generations. In the 1950s, its population grew to 1.8 million people, many of whom were lured by plentiful, wellpaying auto jobs. Later that decade, Detroit began to decline as developers starting building suburbs that lured away workers and businesses. Then beginning in the late 1960s, auto companies began opening plants in other cities. Property values and tax revenue fell, and police couldn’t control crime. In later years, the rise of autos imported from Japan started to cut the size of the U.S. auto industry. By the time the auto industry melted down in 2009, only a few factories from GM and Chrysler were left. GM is the only one with headquarters in Detroit, though it has huge research and testing centers with thousands of jobs outside the city. Since it was restructured, the new, more prosperous company has racked up big profits and added jobs in Detroit. The result is a city where whole neighborhoods are practically deserted and basic services cut off in places. Looming over the crumbling landscape is a budget deficit believed to be more than $380 million and long-term debt that could be as much as $20 billion. Detroit lost a quarter-million residents between 2000 and 2010. Today, the population struggles to stay above 700,000. In recent months, the city has relied on state-backed bond money to meet payroll for its 10,000 employees. “It’s an embarrassment, number one, to come to the realization that we’re actually in this situation,” said Kevin Frederick, an admissions representative for a local career training school. “Not that we didn’t see it coming. I guess we have to take a couple of steps backward to move forward.” Orr made the filing in federal bankruptcy court under Chapter 9, the bankruptcy system for cities and counties. He was unable to persuade a host of creditors, unions and pension boards to take pennies on the dollar to help with the city’s massive financial restructuring. If the bankruptcy filing is approved, city assets could be liquidated to satisfy demands for payment. Orr said Thursday that he “bent over backward” to work with creditors, rejecting criticism that he was too rigid. “Anybody who takes that position just hasn’t been listening.” The bankruptcy could last through summer or fall 2014, which coincides with the end of Orr’s 18-month appointment, he said. Snyder determined earlier this year that Detroit was in a financial emergency and without a plan for improvement. He made it the largest U.S. city

Photog releases photos of Boston bombing suspect
BOSTON (AP) — A police photographer, furious with a Rolling Stone cover photo he believes glamorizes the surviving Boston Marathon suspect, released gritty images Thursday from the day he was captured. Photos released to Boston Magazine by Massachusetts State Police tactical photographer Sgt. Sean Murphy show a downcast, disheveled Dzhokhar Tsarnaev with the red dot of a sniper’s rifle laser sight boring into his forehead. The pictures were taken when Tsarnaev was captured April 19, bleeding and hiding in a dry-docked boat in a Watertown backyard. Murphy said in a statement to Boston Magazine that Tsarnaev is evil and that his photos show the “real Boston bomber, not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.” The April 15 bombing killed three people and injured more than 260. Massachusetts Institute of Technology officer Sean Collier was allegedly killed April 18 by Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, who died following a shootout with police later that evening. State police spokesman David Procopio said in a statement Thursday that the agency did not authorize the release of the photos to Boston Magazine and will not release them to other media. “The State Police will have no further comment on this matter tonight,” he added. Murphy, who did not return a message from The Associated Press, said in his statement to Boston Magazine that Rolling Stone’s cover photo, a softly-lit image of a brooding Tsarnaev, insults officers killed in the line of duty, their colleagues and their families by glamorizing the “face of terror.” “It also could be an incentive to those who may be unstable to do something to get their face on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine,” he said. Rolling Stone said the cover story on Tsarnaev was part of its “long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day.” Boston Magazine printed more than a dozen photos from the day Tsarnaev was captured, including images of police during the manhunt and Tsarnaev as he was captured and taken away by ambulance. Three images showed Tsarnaev as he emerged from the boat, head bowed, with red smudges and streaks on his clothing and the boat. Two images showed the red dot of the laser sight in the middle of his forehead and just above his left eye. The other showed the dot on the top of his head as he buries his face in his arms. In his statement, Murphy said the capture played out like a television show, but he hopes his photos show it was “as real as it gets.” “Officer Sean Collier did give his life. These were real people, with real lives, with real families,” he said. “And to have this cover dropped into Boston was hurtful to their memories and their families. “I know from first-hand conversations that this Rolling Stone cover has kept many of them up — again. It’s irritated the wounds that will never heal — again,” he wrote. “There is nothing glamorous in bringing more pain to a grieving family.”

Obama extols health care law amid public doubts
WASHINGTON (AP) — Facing public doubts and embarrassing setbacks to his signature health care law, President Barack Obama stepped forward Thursday to extol the program’s benefits, emphasizing that some Americans already are receiving insurance rebates and lower premiums. Obama said the program is working the way it was supposed to with “better benefits, stronger protections, more bang for your buck.” The assertion was ridiculed by Republicans, with House Speaker John Boehner calling the Affordable Care Act “a train wreck” that he will keep working to repeal. Obama dismissed the GOP’s so-far-futile votes — the House logged its 38th attempt to repeal or scale

to fall under state oversight when a state loan board hired Orr. His letter was attached to Orr’s bankruptcy filing. Creditors and public servants “deserve to know what promises the city can and will keep,” Snyder wrote. “The only way to do those things is to radically restructure the city and allow it to reinvent itself without the burden of impossible obligations.” A turnaround specialist, Orr represented automaker Chrysler LLC during its successful restructuring. He issued a warning early on in his 18-month tenure in Detroit that bankruptcy was a road he preferred to avoid. In June, he laid out his plans in meetings with debt holders. Some creditors were asked to take about 10 cents on the dollar of what the city owed them. Underfunded pension claims would have received less than the 10 cents on the dollar under that plan.


back the law on Wednesday — with an exasperated sigh and shake of his head during a White House speech. “What I’ve heard is just the same old song and dance,” Obama said of his critics. “We’re just going to blow through that stuff and just keep on doing the right thing for the American people.” While the fate of the health care law will play a major role in defining his legacy, Obama has not devoted much time or energy to selling it to the country, speaking on the subject only occasionally as Republicans have pressed a determined campaign to undermine the program. Obama is returning to the subject now because enrollment begins Oct. 1 for subsidized private coverage through new online markets.

Internet shows its muscle by making Emmy history
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Emmy Awards are television’s biggest celebration of itself, but this year’s ceremony will face an intruder: “House of Cards,” the first online series to nab a top nomination with its best drama series. Netflix’s triumph on Thursday, which includes nods for its revival of “Arrested Development,” is putting a further squeeze on the broadcast networks that already have lost substantial Emmy ground to cable. New network offerings were almost completely shut out and, like last year, no network drama made the nominations cut. Kevin Spacey, the nominated star of the political drama “House of Cards,” reveled in its impressive nine bids and role as a groundbreaker. It’s “really, in many ways, kind of a new paradigm,” he said. “It’s just a great, great thing for all of us.” The major networks, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox, likely have a different viewpoint. Cable channels over the year have sharply eroded their share of the audience, and now the Internet is nibbling away and will only become more robust as viewers turn increasingly to computers and other devices to consume video. A 6-year-old TV academy rules change allows online entries to compete with cable and broadcast programs, but until Thursday online shows popped up only in lower-profile categories. “It’s really groundbreaking,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix. “It’s beyond our most bold expectations. We were thinking a single nomination would be a win… It’s as much a win for Internet television as it is for the content creators.” Networks still field the most-watched series — such as top-rated series “NCIS” and the 20 million-plus viewers it delivers weekly to CBS — and enjoy the rich opportunities they represent. “There’s nothing more profitable than having a big broadcast television hit that can be exploited on multiple platforms,” including syndication and online, said Garth Ancier, a former executive for both broadcast networks and cable. But when the Emmys are presented this fall on CBS, it will surely be irritating to serve as a promotional vehicle for the competition. The ceremony rotates among the big four broadcasters who, with the exception of basically flat NBC, saw their number of Emmy bids decline this year. Besides the showing by Netflix, the leading number of nominations went to a cable miniseries, FX’s “American Horror Story: Asylum.” HBO fielded the next top nominees: “Game of Thrones” with 16 nods and the Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” earned 15 nominations. NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” came

(Continued from page 5)


in with 15 as well, but it, outgoing “30 Rock” (also NBC, 13 bids) and “Modern Family” (ABC, 12 nominations) had the only impressive tallies for broadcast. The bonanza of nominations for “Game of Thrones” is the swords-andfantasy show’s most-ever and includes a best drama series nod and three acting bids, including one for Peter Dinklage. Recognition went to a number of other primarily big-screen actors who have migrated to TV for powerhouse projects, with Michael Douglas and Matt Damon for “Under the Candelabra” among them. Joining “House of Cards” and “Game of Thrones” in the best drama series category are “Breaking Bad,” ”Downton Abbey,” ”Mad Men” and last year’s winner, “Homeland.” “Mad Men,” which last year missed out on the best drama trophy that would have been its record-setting fifth, eclipsing fellow four-time winners “Hill Street Blues,” ”L.A. Law” and “The West Wing,” gets another shot this year. “Mad Men” and its creator failed to receive any writing nominations for the first time in the series’ six-year history. Besides “American Horror Story: Asylum,” others nominated in the miniseries or movie category are “Behind the Candelabra,” ”Phil Spector,” ”Political Animals,” ”Top of the Lake” and “The Bible,” which was a hit for the History channel and is getting a sequel on NBC.

Insects and spiders can also pose threats to your pets. Allergic reactions to bee or wasp stings, or spider bites, are fairly common and often need treatment by a veterinarian to reverse symptoms of facial, tongue and throat swelling, hives and itching – as the symptoms can become life-threatening. My least favorite summertime bugs are flies – they like to find nice, warm, moist, smelly places to lay eggs (such as an old, fluffy, outdoor dog that just doesn’t get around like he used to) – and those eggs hatch into flesh eating maggots. I have seen pets paralyzed because of maggot infestations, and recovery from an infestation is difficult at best. Don’t let your pet be a victim. Simple observation is enough to know whether flies are a problem for your pet, and you can ask your veterinarian for tips on fly control. Encounters with strange animals are more common in the summer, so keeping your pet up to date on vaccinations (especially rabies) is of utmost importance. Coyotes are becoming more problematic, even around urban areas, and they like to lure domestic dogs into their packs in order to attack them. To avoid a faceoff, keep your pet inside if possible and do not let him have free roam when he goes outside. A little planning can go a long way to ensure that you and your pet have a happy, relaxing summer.

“Everyone from miles around comes to it,” Ball said. “It’s always a big hit.” The dinners will be served from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 4-7 p.m in the air-conditioned dining hall. The chicken and beef dinners are served with all the trimming plus homemade desserts. A carry-out option is available, as well as a drive-through. A combo beef and chicken dinner only is available using the drive-through. Another main event returning this year is The Raffle Booth that has its drawings at 8 p.m. “Businesses and parishioners donate all items for the raffle,” Marcie Hoehn, a chairperson for the raffle said. A folding table, an oak filing cabinet, a kid’s picnic table, a rocking chair, a lamp and bikes are all up for the raffle this year. “We have over 50 items for the raffle now and we usually get some last minute donations as well,” Sue Beining, a chairperson for the raffle, said. “It’s great because we have kid and adult items so there’s something for everyone.” Since all the items are donated to the raffle, it always makes a good profit, Beining said. “A lot of people take part in the raffle and it always does really well, so we hope it does just as well this year” she said. “Everyone should come out and have a good time.” The tickets will be for sale at the festival for $1 each or $5 for six tickets. Participants do not need to be present to win. Other returning features of the festival are the craft booth, where people can go throughout the day to make crafts that will be raffled off at night; and a corn hole tournament for adults and children to participate in. “The corn hole teams can consist of a kid and an adult, two kids or two adults,” Ball said. “The challenge is always there for the kids to beat the adults.” New features for the event are a treasure hunt for the kids and homemade ice cream and doughnuts. The festival will also have live entertainment throughout

the day provided by local bands The Brass Notes and Real Life Somebodies. The Brass Notes, a longtime hometown band, will provide music underneath the beer tent from 4:306 p.m. Real Life Somebodies, a young alternative rock band from Ottoville, will play from 6:30-8 p.m. A baked-goods booth with homemade cakes, noodles, cookies and more will open at 8 a.m. A lunch stand will also be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., featuring homemade soups, sandwiches, french fries and desserts. Children and adults can keep entertained with amusement rides, indoor bingo, pop toss, a fish pond, putt putt golf, a petting zoo and other activities throughout the day. A kiddie tractor pull will also take place from 2-4 p.m. and visitors can stop by The Historical Room on the second floor of the Parish Center from 10:30 a.m.-8 p.m. “The Historical Room is like a museum of pictures of all the different communion classes, priests and just old things from the church that aren’t used anymore and have been kept to show the past of the church,” Ball said. Ball expects a higher turnout this year than last year. “The heat was unbearable last year and we were a little down,” Ball said. “We’re looking for a lot better turnout this year with the nice weather we’re suppose to have.” The church has a new priest as well after recently welcoming the Rev. Jerry Schetter. Ball said Rev. Schetter has encouraged everyone to come out and enjoy one big family picnic. “We’re so fortunate to have a faith-based, church community,” Ball said. Planning for the festival starts at the beginning of the year with a meeting between the chairperson of the festival and all the managers of each of the individual features. “Everyone just kind of does their own thing throughout the year to get ready for it,” Ball said. “Everything just falls into place and we all work together. It’s just so neat to see it all work out in the end.” Ottoville Immaculate Conception Parish is located at 189 Church St., Ottoville.
