Delphos, Ohio skills. Claimants may not know their skill sets are transferable from one job to another. By reaching them as soon as possible, they have an opportunity to talk to professionals who can provide guidance in their job search, Johnson explained. He said there are demands for skills now that someone who has been at the same job for 20-30 years may never have acquired or needed. For example, someone who applied for a job by sending a resume in the mail 20 years ago may find navigating the web to send a resume very daunting if they do not have online skills, Johnson said. Those are the people we want to assist as soon as possible and teach them the digital realities. See MANDATES, page 10

HB 2 mandates new claim requirements


BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com DELPHOSOn July 11, Governor John Kasich signed the 130th General Assemblies Substitute House Bill Number 2 (Sub. HB 2) into law. Sub HB 2 amends section 4141.29 of the Revised Code to require an unemployment compensation claimant to register with OhioMeansJobs to be eligible for unemployment compensation benefits. It also requires a claimant to contact a local one-stop office beginning with the eighth week of filing for unemployment compensation benefits. The Bill mandates an individual who is registered with OhioMeansJobs shall receive a weekly listing of available jobs based on information provided by the individual at the time of registration. Registration includes the creation, electronic posting and maintenance of an active searchable resume. For each week the individual claims benefits, they will keep a record of where and when the individual has sought work in complying with those instructions search efforts and, upon request, shall produce that record for examination in the manner and means prescribed by the director. Another provision of the bill states no individual shall be required to register with OhioMeansJobs if the individual is legally prohibited from using a computer, has a physical or visual impairment that makes the individual unable to use a computer or has a limited ability to read, write, speak or understand a language in which OhioMeansJobs is available. Deputy Director of Communications for Ohio Department of Job and Family Services Benjamin Johnson said the legislation is being worked on and will be beneficial for both the administrators state and county local agencies and the claimants. He said currently, the onestop offices, which will be called OhioMeansJobs Centers, have six months to change their names and the county name will follow. Johnson said that the new law will help all Ohioans looking for work and most of them fall into two main categories. There are those who are without work for a few weeks and never really leave the workforce since they have the skills, networking and ongoing job history to support a quick re-entry into the job market. Conversely, there are others who have more trouble finding work. One clear reason is they lack basic job-search

Robbery suspect waives preliminary hearing Thursday


Staff and police reports VAN WERT The man Delphos City Police investigators believe is one of the two males involved in a home-invasion-style robbery on July 10 appeared for his preliminary hearing in Van Wert Municipal Court Thursday. Andrew J. Miller, 27, of Fort Jennings waived his right to the hearing so his case will now be sent to the Common Pleas Court for review by the next session of the Van Wert County Grand Jury next week. He faces a charge of robbery, a felony of the second degree. Investigators say Miller is one of the two men that entered into a home in the 400 block of South Canal Street in Delphos on the evening of July 10. A Delphos man was assaulted during the commission of a theft offense from the home. He was later treated and released from a local hospital. The two masked men fled the scene on foot after the robbery. The victims reported the theft of a television, cash, wallets, cell phones and other personal property to police officers that had been called to the scene. The Van Wert County Grand Jury will convene next week to hear the case. Judge Jill Leatherman continued Millers cash bond at $100,000 cash. He is currently being held in the Van Wert County Jail.

Art guilds opening exhibit showcases pen artist Whitehead


Information submitted DELPHOS The Delphos Area Art Guild will offer its Grand Opening Exhibit at its new home showcasing locally celebrated ball point pen and traditional ink artist, Vincent Whitehead. The gallery is now located at 201 N. Main St. (Second Street entrance). Exhibit dates are Aug. 1-17. Vincent D. Whitehead was born in 1959 and raised in the northwestern Ohio area. He is a self-taught Ball Point Pen artist continuing to perfect his craft. At an early age, he found that God had given him a desire to capture the beauty in nature and in the rural life style that surrounded him. Over the years, he has developed that gift and love into an outward expression through ink, paint and photography. Whitehead considers most of his Ball Point Pen drawings to be paintings more than drawings as he uses a layering and texture along with thickness of line to create or render the images he sees. Layering ink allows him to darken the tonal value in the images and create up to seven values in one drawing. This level of value in tone breathes life into each image. They are more than simple line drawings in this way. Whiteheads exhibit will include 13 originals displayed and for sale with prints and note cards available for purchase. There will also be an end of exhibit raffle for artist donated prints where proceeds will benefit DAAG. An Artist Reception is scheduled for 6:308:30 p.m. Aug. 8, where the artist will be available to discuss details of his artwork.

COLUMBUS (AP) An Ohio firearms group has raised more than $12,000 to be spent on guns or a security system for George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted of all charges in the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida. But the money could end up being used to pay for Zimmermans defense costs and fees. The $12,150.37 check that the group has written out to Zimmerman is the result of a fundraising effort that was launched because the group believes Zimmermans gun rights are being violated by the U.S. Department of Justice. The department has taken all the evidence from the trial, including the gun that killed Martin, as part of a civil rights investigation.

The old Southern preacher had walked through many airport security gates using his cherry-wood cane and was surprised -especially years before 9/11 -- when a guard ordered him to send it through the X-ray scanner. After that rite, the Rev. Will Campbell asked the guard to bring him the cane. The guard, somewhat miffed, asked if he could walk through the scanner without it. The preacher, somewhat vexed, said that was a question for his doctor. Facing a nervous crowd, the guard ordered Campbell to walk through the gate. So the famous civil-rights activist -- the only white leader the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. invited to the first Southern Christian Leadership Conference meeting -- got down on the floor and crawled through. Then he retrieved his cane. Campbell admitted, when telling this parable to Baptist progressives in 1994, that he then gave the cane a sassy little twirl. His wife asked: Why do you do things like that? Because Im a Baptist! I come from a long line of hell-raisers, said Campbell. I was taught that I wasnt a robot -- that I was a human being with a mind, capable of reason, entitled to read any book, including the Bible, and interpret it according to the ability of the mind I was given. Thats why I

do things like that. The key, he said, is to ask what happened to all the Baptists who kept clashing with authority figures in the past. Where are the Baptists who were willing to be tied on ladders and pushed into burning brush heaps because they believed in and practiced freedom of conscience, who were so opposed to the death penalty they wouldnt serve on juries and who would not go to war, any war, for church or state? ... Where are they now? Campbell, who died last month at the age of 88, was a complex activist and writer who made lots of people mad for lots of reasons. Raised in rural Mississippi, he thrived at Yale Divinity School and failed as a small-town pastor. He accompanied the Freedom Riders in 1961 and marched in Birmingham in 1963. He tried to avoid reporters, but was tight with country-music rebels like Johnny Cash and

Waylon Jennings. He opposed both abortion and the death penalty and, late in life, backed gay rights. The self-proclaimed bootleg Baptist spent his life preaching forgiveness and reconciliation, yet also called religious conservatives ecclesiastical highwaymen who were espousing a course that is a rollercoaster to a fascist theocracy. When pushed to summarize his theology, he stated: Were all bastards, but God loves us anyway. Will was fond of saying that if you are going to love one then you have to love everyone. ... This meant rednecks as well as radicals, wrote the Rev. Timothy George, for the conservative First Things journal. He is the dean of Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Ala., and a former member of Campbells Committee of Southern Churchmen. Campbell infuriated many, George added, when he befriended members of the Ku Klux Klan and even visited James Earl Ray in prison. Campbell wrote: I have seen and known the resentment of the racist, his hostility, his frustration, his need for someone upon whom to lay blame and to punish. With the same love that we are commanded to shower upon the innocent victim, the church must love the racist. The fact is Will Campbell was simply sui

generis. He cannot be comfortably squeezed into anyones box. In the end, the only box Campbell accepted was a Baptist box that fit his own iconoclastic specifications -- rejecting all creeds, traditions and hierarchies. Institutions, by their very definition, are evil, he said in that 1994 address. Their raison detre is always and inevitably selfsurvival. They, all of them, when they are threatened, will go to any length -- tell any lie, engage in any program -- to protect themselves. And justify it as being in defense of Almighty God. For Baptists to be true Baptists, he said, its crucial for them to teach that Jesus never demanded of the people who wanted to follow him that they must first know this or that, this creed, or that catechism, the nature of the Trinity or the plan of salvation, or subscribe to an Abstract of Principles to the satisfaction of the Sanhedrin. He had not insisted on any systematic belief whatsoever.

Beating the heat first task for players


BY BARRY WILNER Associated Press Korey Stringer died of heat stroke during the Minnesota Vikings training camp 12 years ago. Since then, the NFLs summer conditioning ritual has changed a lot and for the better. Players have learned there is no courage in challenging the energy-sapping heat and humidity. Coaches have recognized that pushing the guys in uniform even when they are wearing only shorts and no pads is foolhardy. Doctors and trainers have discovered every conceivable way to keep everyone hydrated and acclimated to the sweaty conditions. Yet it is a constant struggle that actually begins long before players report to team facilities in late July, as they are now doing. Once offseason programs begin and especially during minicamps in June when the temperatures begin to climb, players are reminded to drink up and keep cool. Heat illness is 100 percent preventable and that is the message we try to send to our players, says New York Giants assistant athletic trainer and physical therapist Leigh Weiss. Each summer prior to our first practice, (senior vice president of medical services and head athletic trainer) Ronnie Barnes presents to the players on the prevention of heat illness and maintaining adequate hydration during training camp. We educate them about the signs and symptoms of heat illness and let them know that dehydration may not only decrease performance and promote injury but can have very serious consequences. Few current NFL players were around when Stringer passed away but many know his story and his legacy. The Korey Stringer Institute was created in 2010 at the Neag School of Education at the University of Connecticut and it works with the NFL, NCAA and various youth

BEREA Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is confident there will be a favorable resolution to his legal mess. Speaking to reporters moments after the Browns began their first practice of training camp, Haslam said hes very optimistic about the outcome of a federal investigation involving fraud at his familys truck-stop chain. Haslams Pilot Flying J had its headquarters in Knoxville, Tenn., raided on April 15 by the FBI and IRS. Haslam was later Haslam accused of knowing about a program to overcharge customers. He recently reached a settlement to reimburse customers who were cheated out of fuel rebates. Haslam reiterated his ongoing legal situation will not force him to sell the team he took over last August. Were committed to owning the Browns for a long period of time, Haslam said. I understand in Cleveland theres a great deal of uncertainty because of past history but the fans should not worry. Our family is going to own this asset for a long, long time. Were excited and we feel its a privilege to own not just an NFL team but to own the Cleveland Browns with all the heritage and history it has. Haslam was asked if he would remain in charge of the franchise if he was indicted. Let me say this and I think you all have seen this with us and with me, our style is to be very transparent and very open, he replied. When the government investigation happened on April 15, one of the very first calls we made was to the NFL. Were in constant contact with them, they have been very supportive in working with us and Id say were very optimistic on the outcome. Haslam said the investigation has not been a distraction in rebuilding the Browns and denied there were any problems with his cash flow, citing the teams spending in free agency, recent renovations of the teams headquarters and plans to makeover FirstEnergy Stadium.

sports organizations to ensure that athletes are well-educated on the dangers of not being heat acclimatized. Most problems occur at the youth level, particularly at high schools in poorer areas where funding for the most efficient safety measures is not available. Doug Casa, professor of kinesiology at UConn and the lead researcher for the Korey Stringer Institute, fears receiving phone calls about a teenager who died of heat-related problems during a summer football practice. And he gets one or more of those calls nearly every year. There are still a scary amount of high schools that dont have emergency action plans, Casa says, noting that just 10 states have met a national guideline for heat acclimatization while 20 more are closing in on the standard. On the college level, 2003 was a landmark moment because the NCAA became the first major sports organization to mandate heat acclimatization. Casa says the NCAA has been making constant progress in that area ever since. That was a huge change and they have had that in place for 10 years and there was only one heat-stroke death

in preseason practices. Before that, we were averaging two a year, he said. So theres a rule change that has basically saved 20 lives. As for the NFL, while there has been nothing close to a repeat of Stringers death, it wasnt until the 2011 collective bargaining agreement between the players and owners that significant safety cutbacks in the preseason became the rule. Under the new CBA, throughout training camp, players cant be on the field for more than four hours per day; only one practice a day can be in pads and is restricted to three hours or less, followed by a 3-hour break, and players get one day off per week. No contact or pads are allowed during the first three days of camp, with the reporting date limited to physical exams, meetings and classroom work. Running and conditioning is allowed. That is the most vulnerable time for players, especially those coming off injuries. Casa recommends practices of no longer than two hours in the first week of camp. I think it helps a tremendous amount, codifying this, and eliminating contact in two-a-days is a very big deal, says Dr. Thom Mayer, the NFL Players Association medical director. We talk about that from the concussion side, appropriately so, and from the heat-related side. Since Koreys death, I think this has improved a tremendous amount. The awareness of club physicians, having a document that is clear for club physicians who must make sure a coaching staff and training staffs are aware of heat-related illnesses. Many (coaches) came up in the era of when you shook it off, you are just a little hot. I think we have made a lot of progress but that does not mean vigilance has changed. It is a necessity. See NFL, page 7

Knaus cool and calm persona is just a facade


Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. Chad Knaus, with five championships and 62 victories as Jimmie Johnsons crew chief, always appears unflappable at the race track. He walks with confidence, a purpose, and seems to effortlessly lead his team through times of crisis. Is it really just a facade? Thats the impression Knaus gave this Knaus week in the lead-up to the Brickyard 400, where he and Johnson seek a record-tying fifth victory at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Its kind of funny; I always am in just a semi-state of a little bit of fear, Knaus admitted. Im not going to lie I fear the fact that one day, well never win a race again. I fear the fact that one day I wont work with Jimmie again. I fear the fact that one day, I wont have this amazing facility at Hendrick Motorsports to work in. And I try to work as hard as I can every single day to go out there and win races because I know at some point in time, its going to go away.

And you just cant take anything for granted. The duo of Johnson and Knaus has taken nothing for granted since they were paired by Rick Hendrick as the nucleus of the startup No. 48 team in 2002. Knaus was relentless in his preparation and had Johnson in Victory Lane a mere 10 races into their relationship. There were three wins that rookie year, including a sweep at Dover that positioned Johnson as the series points leader with seven races left in the season. Those victories and flirting with a championship made Knaus push even harder and the next two seasons led to 10 wins and a pair of runner-up finishes in the title race. There were four wins in 2005 and Johnson went into the season finale ranked second with a shot at the title. But the behind-the-scenes tension, fueled in part by Knaus relentless drive, nearly fractured the team. A tire issue caused Johnson to crash in the finale, finish fifth in the standings and led Hendrick to force his driver and crew chief to examine their relationship. Given the choice to repair their relationship or be split apart by the team owner, both Johnson and Knaus chose to continue pushing on together. Five championships and 44 wins later, the two are the longest active crew chief and driver pairing in NASCAR and have shown no signs of letting up. Johnson heads into Sundays race with four victories and a 56-point cushion over second-place Clint Bowyer in the standings. See KNAUS, page 7

Penn State heading into Year 2 under OBrien


BY JAY COHEN Associated Press CHICAGO Bill OBrien thinks he can do a better job of managing the clock. He wants to improve his communication with his coaches in the press box. Then there are the adjustments for recruiting, practice and team meetings. After a most unusual season, the Penn State coach is focused on putting everything he learned in Year 1 to good use. When youve never done it as a head coach, youre definitely learning on the job, and I learned a lot in my first year, OBrien said Thursday at Big Ten media days. OBrien and the Nittany Lions enter this season in a much different spot than a year ago, when the former offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots was adapting to his new role with the school facing unprecedented sanctions for the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. Just 6 1/2 months after he accepted the job, OBrien found out he was looking at a 4-year bowl ban and steep scholarship cuts. Not exactly an ideal situation for a firsttime head coach. A year ago, we had just found out about the sanctions, so that was a tough OBrien time, OBrien said. That was a time when we had just received in many ways, as far as Im concerned, some unexpected news. We knew there was something coming down the pipe. And then Im coming to my first Big Ten media days as a head coach, on top of all that. I think weve learned a lot in a year. I believe weve improved. The years ahead arent going to be easy but we have a better handle on things. Considering the controversy swirling around the program, Penn States 8-4 record last season was one of the best coaching jobs in the country and OBrien received several awards. The Nittany Lions dropped their first two games, then won five in a row. The offense developed into one of the most potent units in the conference. But listen to the 43-year-old OBrien for a while and its clear the Boston native expects more from himself and his players. We want to be a tough, smart football team. We want good kids. We want to be able to play in all kinds of weather and all those different things, OBrien said. I talk about that a lot, whether its recruiting or Xs and Os. That public emphasis on improvement is consistent with the coach the Nittany Lions see in practice and meetings. Hes the same guy but with any competitor and coach OBrien is a competitor, he always feels like he needs to improve something, safety Malcolm Willis said. Just certain things like just different techniques that hell learn or things that hell watch on film that he picks up, you know hell inform the team and hes always 100 percent honest with us. While there is an ongoing competition at quarterback and concerns at linebacker, there is still plenty for OBrien to work with in his second season. Whoever wins the QB job gets to throw it to dynamic receiver Allen Robinson, who had a school-record 77 receptions for 1,013 yards last season. There are 16 returning starters in all and a total of 38 letterwinners coming back. There will be no postseason again this year but that hasnt dampened the expectations the Nittany Lions have for themselves. We have the same motivation that any football team in the country does, senior guard John Urschel said. We love each other. Were a team. We want to do well for each other. We want to fight for each other and we want to win football games for each other, for our team, for our head coach and for our university. While OBrien is more comfortable in his position than he was a year ago, its not as if the Sandusky scandal is completely behind the program. The NCAA asked a Pennsylvania court on Tuesday to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the family of the late coach Joe Paterno that seeks to overturn the sanctions against Penn State. Some trustees, former players and coaches and current faculty members are also taking part in the same lawsuit, which the NCAA asserted was flawed. The ongoing legal questions make for a tricky situation for OBrien, who recently spoke with the universitys Board of Trustees about the NCAA penalties. When Im asked questions, at times Ill give my opinion, he added. But right now Im so focused on the 2013 season, I dont really care about those other things. I know my job is to go out here and do the best job I can to keep this team focused on training camp and Syracuse. Communication key for Nebraskas Pelini: Nebraska coach Bo Pelini has a message for potential football players: Put away your phones, tablets and computers and start practicing your communication skills. Pelini said Thursday that the rapid rise of social media and other forms of communication have had a detrimental effect on the communication skills that are found more frequently in older generations. These kids, theyre in a different day and age, he said. Getting them to, obviously that goes to communication on the field, but Im also talking about building leaders and developing leaders and getting guys because to lead youve got to be able communicate. You cant lead anything if you dont have great communication and that isnt natural to this generation. If you had a problem with somebody, our generation just walked up and you confront somebody, you talk to them face to face. Now they send a text. The 45-year-old Pelini added communication on the field has become a major point of emphasis for the Cornhuskers: We cant harp on it enough to the point where, you cant assume anything. You have to constantly enforce it and reinforce it and reinforce it again and demand it. A bad word: Kirk Ferentz is entering his 14th season at Iowa, making him the dean of Big Ten coaches. Even if he doesnt care for the term. Never call a football coach a dean, he said. Thats a misnomer. Ferentz begins the year with a 100-74 record with the Hawkeyes, behind only Hayden Fry on the school victory list. Iowa is coming off a 4-8 season, including four losses by three points or less, and opens on Aug. 31 against Mid-American Conference champion Northern Illinois. Ferentz explained his long run at the school is attributable to a couple of factors. I think its a reflection of two things, he added. I work with great people, day in and day out, and then I work at a place thats sort of like the Pittsburgh Steelers. I think that traditionally our administration gets it and they understand theres going to be highs and lows. Coaching tree: Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said Jim Tressel never overruled him while he was the defensive coordinator at Ohio State and its important to him to give the same freedom to his coaches with the Spartans. The way Tressel treated his assistants is something that sticks with Dantonio to this day. I try to do a lot of things like Tress in terms of how you treat people and things of that nature, Dantonio said. Again, I go back, you know what are my goals for our assistant coaches? Its those relationships. Its launching a career. Their graduation is when we go (to) a BCS game or a Rose Bowl or January 1 game or a championship game. Thats their graduation and then I help them launch their career. Season-ending slide: Illinois lost its last nine games last year, including a 50-14 loss at Northwestern to conclude the dismal 2-10 season. For quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase, it was quite the learning experience. Going through last year, you learned a lot,

Bosch associate says he turned down MLBs $125K


Associated Press BRISTOL, Conn. A former associate of Biogenesis head Tony Bosch said he turned down a $125,000 offer from Major League Baseball for documents reported to implicate players in the use of performance-enhancing drugs. In an interview broadcast Thursday on ESPNs Outside the Lines, Porter Fischer added an additional dozen athletes from different sports whose names have not been made public were involved in the now-closed Florida anti-aging clinic. Fischer, 49, admitted giving documents to the Miami News Times, which published a story in January detailing the alleged purchase of performanceenhancing drugs by Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, 2012 All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera, 2005 AL Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon and 2011 AL championship series MVP Nelson Cruz. Others were later implicated in media reports, including Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun, who agreed this week to a 65-game suspension. Baseballs probe of other players is ongoing. Fischer said he received $5,500 in cash from MLBs investigation. The network reported he rejected the larger sum because it wasnt enough to restart his life. Once I turned them down for the $125,000, two days later they wrote me a letter instructing me not to destroy any documents and to keep them around, he said. Then two days after that on the 24th of March, I was transporting evidence back to the state investigator for him to follow up on some criminal

activity and my car was broken into and four boxes of evidence were taken. Im still amenable to working with them. Because of this, now my employment opportunities are limited. I feel that I have something good to say. Just like anything else, I feel like my cooperation and compensation should go hand in hand or at least be evaluated. Fisher said when he first started working with Bosch, he thought Bosch was a doctor. Boschs failure to pay him money he was owed caused him to give documents to the New Times. At the time, he decided against contacting police or prosecutors. Fischer claimed he received death threats from someone wanting to stop the article from being published. I dont have any friends anymore, he added. I dont go to the same locations I used to go to. My blinds are closed all the time. I have a concealed weapons permit but now I continually carry a weapon. In a story on ESPN.com, Fischer said some athletes had been purchasing from Bosch since 2009 and that some of the athletes were from the NBA, NCAA, boxing, tennis and MMA.

Browns (Continued from page 6)


Theres absolutely no worry about cash flow, said Haslam, wearing a gray Browns T-shirt and brown shorts. If there was, we wouldnt be doing the things we were in Berea, we wouldnt have signed the free agents, we wouldnt be talking about doing the things we are at the stadium. Were looking at this as a long-term vision. We want to be successful as quickly as we can. We want to build a long-term vision here. Haslam is excited about the upcoming season but cautioned Cleveland fans to be patient with the teams new front office and coaching staff. He wants the Browns to win consistently and would like that to happen as soon as possible.

he said, not only about yourself on the field, but you learned about yourself just as from a character standpoint, from a leadership standpoint. I think leadership is really easy when things are going well and everythings good but you dont truly know yourself until you deal with some struggles and some hard stuff. Scheelhaase threw for 1,361 yards and four touchdowns last season with eight interceptions. He also rushed for 303 yards and four more TDs. He ranks fifth on the schools career list with 7.091 yards of total offense and is sixth with 5,296 yards passing. Illinois hired former Western Michigan coach Bill Cubit in January to serve as offensive coordinator and Scheelhaase is excited for the possibilities for his senior season. Its been great working with coach Cubit, he added. Hes a guy that, you know his resume speaks for itself. Hes been around the game for a long time. I think thats something thats very important for us as players, just to understand that he knows what hes talking about. Bouncing back: Year three has typically been the charm in previous stops for Minnesota coach Jerry Kill and Gophers running back Donnell Kirkwood hopes thats the case this season. Everybodys saying the third year is when he goes nuts, said Kirkwood, who ran for 926 yards on 218 carries with six rushing touchdowns in 2012. I can see where hes going because this team has become physically tougher, its become mentally tougher. Were eliminating some of the mental mistakes that hurt us in a lot of big games. And its all because of Kill; hes an excellent coach. The 51-year-old Kill was 10-2 in 2003, his third year at Southern Illinois, and went 10-3 at Northern Illinois in 2010 before accepting the Golden Gophers job. He was 3-9 in his inaugural Minnesota season and 6-7 last year. Kirkwood enters his third season after starting 13 games as a sophomore and winning outstanding offensive player honors. Hazell & Purdue: Purdue defensive tackle Bruce Gaston said Darrell Hazell barely missed a beat as he settled in as the programs 35th head coach after his hiring late last year. The adjustment really hasnt been rough at all, said Gaston, a 6-2 senior from Chicago. He got everybody to buy into his system because he came in confident and knew he had a foundation and knew it would work to take us to the next level. Hazell, who succeeded the fired Danny Hope, moved over from Kent State where he went 11-3 last year, reached the GoDaddy.com Bowl and was Mid-American coach of the year. Gaston had 19 solo tackles and nine assists along with two fumble recoveries for a Purdue team that went 6-7 overall. Hes pleased with how the defensive line has developed through spring and the approaching fall practices.

HI AND LOIS

Distributed by Universal UClick for UFS

Some of the grateful recipients of your past favors will find a number of ways to repay you in the year ahead. They will go out of their way to help you achieve your social and material goals. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Substantial returns are in the offing from all the effort youve expended on something that has yet to yield fruit. That big payoff youre looking for is just around the corner. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -One of your most valuable assets will be the ability to motivate others to get off their duffs. You will inspire people to get something done. Go ahead and lead, theyll follow. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your material aspects continue to look quite encouraging. Follow the same formula that youve been using and you should be able to get a profit through both direct and indirect action. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Although a friend of long standing might come to you for help, ironically, you could be the party wholl derive the greatest benefits from it. Be open-handed in all that you do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- To get others to be more effective, let them think your good ideas are theirs. By doing so, youll be the one who will end up with the greatest success. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Go out of your way to touch base with some old friends. Owing to something new thats stirring, its to your advantage to maintain as many strong relationships as you can. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Youre still in a very fortunate cycle where benefits can be derived from handling tasks and assignments as effectively as possible. Do the best you can and focus, focus, focus. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- This is an excellent day to enter into serious negotiations, provided each party is as concerned about protecting the rights of others as they are their own privileges. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have a natural ability to take something thats old and transform it into something far more useful. Youll get a chance to use this in both your work and social life today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Something good is likely to happen that should strengthen the bonds between you and your special someone. Itll be up to you to take full advantage of this excellent opportunity for growth. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Youre on a productive roll when it comes to wrapping up deals, but itll be up to you to take full advantage of favorable circumstances. Put your priorities in order and handle whats most important first. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If at all possible, do not delegate any important assignments to a subordinate. Even if it puts you under some pressure, youre the one best equipped to handle the matter.

Striking back against courts Voting Rights ruling


PETE YOST Associated Press WASHINGTON The Obama administration opened an aggressive new front in the battle over voter protection Thursday, singling out Texas for legal action and promising broader efforts to come after last months Supreme Court ruling that wiped out a major provision of the Voting Rights Act. It was the administrations first legal response to counter the justices 5-4 decision, but Attorney General Eric Holder pledged that it will not be our last. In a speech to the National Urban League in Philadelphia, Holder called the Voting Rights Act the cornerstone of modern civil rights law and said that we cannot allow the slow unraveling of the progress that so many, throughout history, have sacrificed so much to achieve. Texas Republicans suggested the administration effort was more about politics.

WASHINGTON (AP) You may have heard that shopping for health insurance under President Barack Obamas health care overhaul will be like using Travelocity or Amazon. But many people will end up with something more mundane than online shopping, like a call to the help desk. Struggling with a deadline crunch, some states are delaying online tools that could make it easier for consumers to find the right plan when the markets go live on Oct. 1. Ahead of open enrollment for millions of uninsured Americans, the feds and the states are investing in massive call centers. The description that this was going to be like Travelocity was a very simplistic way of looking at it, said Christine Ferguson, director of the Rhode Island Health Benefits Exchange. I never bought into it. The bottom line is that with tight timelines states have had to scale back their initial ambitions for Day 1, said Paul Hencoski, leader of KPMGs government health practice, which is advising nearly 20 states. A lot of the more sophisticated functionalities that might have been offered through the Web are being deferred to later phases. When the markets first open, Hencoski said, there will be a significant amount of manual processing of things that will later be automated. Translation: emails, phone calls, faxes. The Obama administration, which will be running the markets or taking the lead in 35 states, has yet to demonstrate the technology platform that will help consumers get financial help with their premiums and pick a plan. Officials say they always envisioned people would be able to apply in a variety of ways, from online to the mail. About 7 million are expected to enroll in the marketplaces by next year, and the administration says consumers will be pleased with the experience. Also known as exchanges, the markets are supposed to transform the way individuals and small businesses buy private health insurance by increasing transparency and competition, bolstering government oversight of insurers, and injecting hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies. The experience will be more like buying a new car than snapping up airline tickets on Travelocity or electronics on Amazon. Consumers see this as a serious product, and something that requires a serious amount of research, said Julie Bataille, overseeing the outreach effort at the federal Health and Human Services department. Its something they see in a more serious way than (buying) an airline ticket. Its a complicated transaction with different components, including arranging financing and picking the right product, each with its own choices and trade-offs. You may need a glossary of health insurance terms. And theres another layer. One part of the process involves applying for federal benefits with consequences if you lie to the government, or maybe just make a mistake. Another involves using your federal subsidy to pick the right insurance plan from among competing carriers and four coverage levels: bronze, silver, gold or platinum. Youll log on to the marketplace in your state, or the federally run exchange, and set up a personal account. Youll enter information about yourself and your family, including Social Security numbers and household income. The exchange will shoot your data to something called the federal data services hub, an electronic clearinghouse that pings Social Security, Homeland Security and the Internal Revenue Service to verify your personal details. The IRS will calculate the maximum health insurance subsidy that youre entitled to. Its set up as a tax credit, so the taxman can come back to collect if you claim too much. Discrepancies between the information you submit and whats in government records will take time to straighten out.

Plea deal offer reported in Cleveland kidnap case

Probe of deadly derailment focuses on train speed Starting high school later
SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain (AP) By all accounts, the train was going way too fast as it curled around a gentle bend. Then in an instant, one car tumbled off the track, followed by the rest of the locomotive, which seemed to come apart like a zipper being pulled. The derailment sent pieces of the sleek train plowing across the ground in a ghastly jumble of smashed metal, dirt and smoke. But a day after Spain suffered its deadliest rail disaster in decades which killed 80 people and maimed scores of others one question surpassed all others: Why was the train moving so fast? Investigators opened a probe Thursday into possible failings by the 52-year-old driver and the trains in-built speed-regulation systems. Experts said one, or both, must be at fault for the disastrous Wednesday night crash of the train that was carrying 218 passengers and five crew members to Santiago de Compostela, a destination of Catholic pilgrimage preparing to celebrate its most revered saint. Instead, this stunned city of nearly 100,000 converted its sports arena into a shelter for the dead and the grieving. All Spaniards feel the pain of the families, said Spains head of state, King Juan Carlos, as he and Queen Sofia met hospitalized survivors of the crash 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) south of Santiago de Compostela. The royal couple dressed in funereal black. For a native of Santiago like me, this is the saddest day, said Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who toured the crash scene and declared a national three-day mourning period. The regional government of Galicia, in northwest Spain, said 94 people remained hospitalized, 31 of them in critical condition, including four children. The U.S. State Department said one American died and at least five others were hurt but cautioned that those figures could be revised upward. Many victims suffered severe burns as the trains diesel fuel ignited a fire that caught some passengers trapped in mangled upside-down carriages. Emergency officials took DNA samples from the most heavily burned or the unconscious in an effort to identify both the living and the dead. Rafael Catala, a senior transport official in Spains Development Ministry, told radio network Cadena SER that the train appeared to be going much faster than the tracks speed limit of 80 kph (50 mph) as it approached the city. Breathtaking footage of the crash captured by a railway security camera showed the moment when the eight-carriage train approached a left bend beneath a road bridge at a seemingly impossible speed. An Associated Press analysis of the video indicated the train hit the bend going twice the speed limit or more. Using the time stamp of the video and the estimated distance between two pylons, the AP calculated that the train was moving in a range of 144 to 192 kph (89 to 119 mph). Another estimate calculated on the basis of the typical distance between railroad ties indicated its speed was between 156 kph and 182 kph (96 to 112 mph). The anonymously posted video footage, which the Spanish railway authority Adif said probably came from one of its cameras, shows the train carriages buckling and leaving the tracks soon into the turn. Murray Hughes, consultant editor of Railway Gazette International, said a diesel-powered unit behind the lead locomotive appeared to derail first. The front engine quickly followed, violently tipping on to its right side as it crashed into a concrete wall and bulldozed along the ground. In the background, the rear carriages could be seen starting to decouple and coming off the tracks. The picture went blank as the engine appeared to crash directly into the camera.

CLEVELAND (AP) Deep plea deal discussions hinging on the death penalty were underway for a man charged with kidnapping three women, keeping them cooped up in his run-down home and raping them repeatedly for about a decade, and a court hearing was scheduled for toay. Both sides in the case against former school bus driver Ariel Castro are headed back to court Friday morning before a judge who wants to be kept updated on the talks, defense attorney Jaye Schlachet said. Cleveland TV stations reported Thursday that a plea offer had been made. Schlachet declined to comment on the status of the talks but said offers and counteroffers would be expected. Were in the middle of plea negotiating, thats where were at, he said. Plea negotiations have been undertaken which, when theres plea offers and like any other negotiations, theres offers, theres negotiations, theres acceptance of offers, things of that sort. Todays hearing was a final pretrial, Laura Creed, chief judicial staff attorney for the Cuyahoga County clerk of courts, said in an email.

Rebel pope urges Catholics to shake up dioceses


RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Pope Francis showed his rebel side Thursday, urging young Catholics to shake up the church and make a mess in their dioceses by going out into the streets to spread the faith. Its a message he put into practice by visiting one of Rios most violent slums and opening the churchs World Youth Day on a rain-soaked Copacabana Beach. Francis was elected pope on a mandate to reform the church, and in four short months he has started doing just that: He has broken long-held Vatican rules on everything from where he lays his head at night to how saints are made. He has cast off his security detail to get close to his flock, and his first international foray as pope has shown the faithful appreciate the gesture. Dubbed the slum pope for his work with the poor, Francis received a rapturous welcome in the Varginha shantytown, part of a slum area of northern Rio so violent its known as the Gaza Strip. The 76-year-old Argentine seemed entirely at home, wading into cheering crowds, kissing people young and old and telling them the Catholic Church is on their side. No one can remain insensitive to the inequalities that persist in the world! Francis told a crowd of thousands who braved a cold rain and stood in a muddy soccer field to welcome him. No amount of peace-building will be able to last, nor will harmony and happiness be attained in a society that ignores, pushes to the margins or excludes a part of itself. It was a message aimed at reversing the decline in the numbers of Catholics in most of Latin America, with many poor worshippers leaving the church for Pentecostal and evangelical congregations. Those churches have taken up a huge presence in favelas, or shantytowns such as Varginha, attracting souls with nuts-and-bolts advice on how to improve their lives. The Varginha visit was one of the highlights of Francis

weeklong trip to Brazil, his first as pope and one seemingly tailor-made for the first pontiff from the Americas. The surprise, though, came during his encounter with Argentine pilgrims, scheduled at the last minute in yet another sign of how this spontaneous pope is shaking up the Vaticans staid and often stuffy protocol. He told the thousands of youngsters, with an estimated 30,000 Argentines registered, to get out into the streets and spread their faith and make a mess, saying a church that doesnt go out and preach simply becomes a civic or humanitarian group.

Van Wert County Director of Job and Family services Mary Beth Holtsberry said the new system, OhioMeansJobs, is an updated and more user friendly system accessed through Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS). On the county level, the Van Wert agency helps with cash and food assistance, Holtsberry explained. As partners with ODJFS, we make referrals to the one-stop. Holtsberry says the system encourages people to get looking quicker and sharpen their basic soft skills. She said employers look at the time an individu-

al has been without work and question those time frames. By the time a claimants unemployment compensation is about to run out and they are under pressure to find a job, a potential employers first thoughts are What have you been doing? Holtsberry detailed. Holtsberry said if an individual has waited too long, they cannot receive the helpclasses and job search assistancethey need to better themselves. The shorter amount of unemployed time the more likely they will be hired, Holtsberry explained. We want people to make contact early for ABLE (Adult Basic and Literacy Education) and receive job and computer training

opportunities to refresh those basic skills which are transferable from one job to another. Interim Director for Allen County Department of Job and Family Services Steve Barker said that he is in the dark about Sub HB 2. We are still waiting on information and further clarifications from the state offices and Directors Association, Barker said. Hopefully well have more information in the upcoming weeks.

NEW YORK (AP) Quinn Cooney of Mill Creek, Wash., is excited about starting high school in September, but shes not looking forward to waking up at 5:30 a.m. to arrive on time. Classes for ninth-graders start at 7:30 a.m., 45 minutes earlier than they did in middle school. I think it is going to be harder to get up, said Quinn, 13. I do think it is better to start early so that we can be finished early and do things after school, but I am worried that if I have a boring class for my first period that it will be hard to stay awake. Decades of sleep research have confirmed what parents know: Its hard for teenagers to wake up early. Some high schools have adopted late starts around 8:30 a.m. to improve attendance and performance. But other districts say its too complicated to shift schedules because of logistics involving buses and after-school activities. About 40 percent of U.S. public high schools open before 8 a.m., according to the U.S. Department of Educations National Center for Education Statistics, with just 15 percent starting 8:30 a.m. or later. In districts where early starts are necessary because the same bus does multiple runs for high school, middle school and elementary students, teens often get the early shift. Thats the case in Anne Arundel County, Md., where public high schools start at 7:17 a.m. and buses start running at 5:50 a.m. Lisa Rodvien taught high school there, in Annapolis, and says attendance at her first-period classes was as low as 50 percent or below. Among those who showed up, I would definitely see three or four kids with their heads down. You walk over to them to wake them up and get them to sit up, and you see that theyre exhausted. Earlier this year, Anne Arundel school officials laid out options for delaying start times to anywhere from 7:32 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. along with potential complications, such as additional costs if buses are added, child care issues where late-day schedules might prevent teens from picking up younger siblings after school, and implications for teams if they end up playing in the dark. Bob Mosier, spokesman for Anne Arundel schools, said no decisions have been made. But the focus on logistics is frustrating for Heather Macintosh, spokeswoman for a national organization called Start School Later thats headquartered in Annapolis. What is the priority? she said. It should be education, health and safety. All the other stuff may not be perfect you may have to have your violin lesson before school or install lights on your field (for sports) but it will work itself out. Megan Kuhfeld, a graduate student at the University of California-Los Angeles whos been studying late-start debates since she was an undergrad at Duke University in North Carolina, surveyed some 35 districts that switched to later starts and found most were glad theyd made the switch. Not only did students benefit, for the most part, but the things people had feared how transportation would be affected, how sports would be affected became the new normal and people adjusted, she said. But Kuhfeld knows firsthand the pros and cons of late-start high schools, having attended one in Chapel Hill, N.C. I enjoyed waking up later than everyone in the area next to me where there were early start times, she said, but as a member of the tennis team, she had to miss sixth and seventh period classes to compete at other schools. In junior and senior year, that meant AP classes had to be made up. It was hard to balance everything, she said. Id get home at 8 p.m. and hadnt had dinner yet. Still, advocates say several studies show the benefits of late start schools outweigh the drawbacks. In 1996, high school start times in Edina, Minn., changed from 7:20 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. The change improved attendance, decreased tardiness and left kids more alert, better prepared and even less depressed and less likely to visit school nurses, according to studies led by Kyla Wahlstrom, director of the Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement at the University of Minnesota. By the end of the first year, 92 percent of Edina parents also said they preferred the later start, Wahlstrom said.

Ottoville is a great community; a very Catholic-based community, he said. Its also a small community, so it helps you get to know everyone. There are a lot of families here with the same name, which can make things easier I guess. Its very different from Perrysburg. Ottoville also brings me closer to my roots, closer to home, he went on. I have some family in the area as well, which is nice. I actually spent three months in Delphos too, about seven years ago when I was in seminary. I spent the summer at St. Johns. Before deciding to go to seminary in 2005, Schetter managed a business called Unique Awards and Signs in St. Marys with his sister Julia. He said his reason for changing careers was simple. My reason was God, he said. You cant ask for a better reason than that. I just felt called. I had done a lot of ministry work my whole life and it was something I had a lot of experience with, so it was easy for me to feel Gods call in my life. When Schetter isnt enriching the spiritual lives of parish

members, he enjoys cultivating his love for sports. I enjoy sports. Im a true Buckeye, he said. When I got here to Ottoville I asked whats a Big Green anyway? They said, well its a spartan, and I said I was a Roughrider before so I guess I can be a Big Green now but not a spartan because Im a Buckeye through and through. Schetter was also a professional skier. Skiing used to be a big part of my life, he continued. I was a professional skier for 30 years with the National Ski Patrol. Its not so much a part of my life anymore now. I enjoy golfing occasionally, too. I just enjoy sports. Schetter knows he will encounter challenges on the road ahead, but he feels hes prepared to meet them. Our appointments come from the bishop, he said. Ive only had two years as a priest but the bishop obviously had great faith in me to have sent me here to Ottoville. Its ironic actually, my first weekend here I remember the gospel was about when Jesus sent out his disciples, two by two, but he sent me out by myself. I have a lot of experience dealing with people though, through business and education, so I dont think itll be too difficult.
