Ambulatory Care starts 13th year in Delphos
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor email@example.com DELPHOS — St. Rita’s Ambulatory Care Center begins its 13th year in Delphos this month. The facility has seen an average of 9,000 urgent care visits per year since it opened its doors on Sept. 10, 2001. “We see a lot of upper respiratory problems, lacerations and questionable fracture,” said Director of Urgent Care Tara Miller. The numbers go up considerably if specialty clinics are included. Local patients can make an appointment for gastroenterology, orthopedic, urology and heart specialists in Delphos and save trip to the doctors’ offices. “We have specialist who have a day they are in Delphos so people can stay here in Delphos or have a shorter commute to see their doctor,” Miller added. When the center opened 12 years ago, a health-care provider was available from 2-8 p.m. for urgent care. Seeing a need for more availability, since 2009, a provider is available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Lab and imaging are available are from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday. “We recently made a change to our lab process,” Office Coordinator Sherri Wannemacher said. “All of our lab work now goes through St. Rita’s instead of an independent lab. We still offer the same services, it’s just processed at St. Rita’s. Patients can still come early in the morning and get the work done and the results are just as timely.” Services offered at the care center include: urgent care, outpatient nursing, x-ray, mammography, occupational heal including drug screenings and breath alcohol testing and physicals, outpatient lab, EKG, CT scan and physical medicine and rehabilitation. Specialty physicians include Dr. Tariq Sheikh, gastroenterology; Dr. Gary Schniegenberg, orthopedics; Drs. Russell Taylor and Narendra Bansal, urology; and Dr. Julius Kato, heart. Miller said residents considering treatment should think of the facility as an after-hours doctor’s office and seriously-injured people should still go to the hospital.
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org LIMA — Out of 88 counties, Allen County ranks 83 with the most detrimental health behaviors including adult smoking, adult obesity, physical inactivity, excessive drinking, motor vehicle crash death rates, sexually-transmitted infections and teen birth rates. A collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute called The County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program shows the rank of the health of nearly every county in the nation. Per the county’s snapshot, which includes data from 2005 through 2011, Allen County’s health behaviors were compared to overall Ohio averages and a national

25 Years Ago – 1988 The Fort Jennings Ohio Child Conservation leagues, Dimples and Grins, Frills and Frogs and Buckles and Bows recently donated money to purchase a table for the Putnam County branch library in Fort Jennings. Accepting the check from Pat Liebrecht was librarian Doris Miehls. Also participating in the presentation were Chris Trenkamp, Karen Maenle and Sharon Calvelage. A year ago, the Rev. Chris Vasko, associate pastor of St. John’s Catholic Church and members of the Father John Otto Bredeick Circle 3329 Columbia Squires, began the archeological excavation of the Miami-Erie Canal to raise the canal boat Marguerite. While work has been slow, the Squires have been constructing a model of the Marguerite that will be on display during Canal Days. Fort Jennings handed Ottoville its first volleyball loss Monday night 15-7, 11-15 and 15-11. Fort Jennings was 60 of 69 in serves with Kelly Lindeman 19 of 20 and Shannon Hawk 11 of 13.

This is the first use of Hi-Fi color printing in The Herald since it was founded in 1869. Printing of the advertisement required special adjustments to The Herald’s flat-bed press.

The tenor of this and other comments in Germany was that it was up to Czechoslovakia to make concessions which will satisfy not only its German minority but Hitler personally, or, failing that, it is up to the powers of Europe to say whether they want to go to war to defend Czechoslovakia. Owners of ‘coon hounds are being warned to keep them protected as it is believed a ring of professional dog thieves is operating in this section. Saturday night or early Sunday morning, two valuable dogs were stolen from Thomas Brown near Spencerville. The dogs, Sass and Nailer, are well known in ‘coonhunting circles and recently their pictures were carried in a sportsman’s magazine.

LYONS, Colo. (AP) — Heavy rains sent walls of water crashing down mountainsides Thursday in Colorado, cutting off remote towns, forcing the state’s largest university to close and leaving at least three people dead across a rugged landscape that included areas blackened by recent wildfires. After a rainy week, up to 8 more inches fell in an area spanning from the Wyoming border south to the foothills west of Denver. Flooding extended all along the Front Range mountains and into some cities, including Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, Greeley, Aurora and Boulder. Numerous roads and highways were washed out or made impassable by floods. Floodwaters poured into homes, and at least a few buildings collapsed in the torrent. Boulder County appeared to be hardest hit. Sheriff Joe Pelle said the town of Lyons was completely cut off because of flooded roads, and residents were huddling together on higher ground. Although everyone was believed to be safe, the deluge was expected to continue into Friday. “It is not an ordinary disaster,” Pelle said. “All the preparation in the world … it can’t put people up those canyons while these walls of water are coming down.”
Today is Friday, Sept. 13, the 256th day of 2013. There are 109 days left in the year. The Jewish Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, begins at sunset. Today’s Highlight in History: On September 13, 1788, the Congress of the Confederation authorized the first national election, and declared New York City the temporary national capital. On this date: In 1759, during the final French and Indian War, the British defeated the French on the Plains of Abraham overlooking Quebec City. In 1803, Commodore John Barry, considered by many the father of the American Navy, died in Philadelphia. In 1912, a state funeral was held in Japan for Emperor Meiji. In 1948, Republican Margaret Chase Smith of Maine was elected to the U.S. Senate; she became the first woman to serve in both houses of Congress. In 1959, Elvis Presley first met his future wife, 14-yearold Priscilla Beaulieu, while stationed in West Germany with the U.S. Army. (They married in 1967, but divorced in 1973.) In 1962, Mississippi Gov. Ross Barnett rejected the U.S. Supreme Court’s order for the University of Mississippi to admit James Meredith, a black student, declaring in a televised address, “We will not drink from the cup of genocide.” In 1970, the first New York City Marathon was held; winner Gary Muhrcke finished the 26.2-mile run, which took place entirely inside Central Park, in 2:31:38. In 1971, a four-day inmates’ rebellion at the Attica Correctional Facility in western New York ended as police and guards stormed the prison; the ordeal and final assault claimed the lives of 32 inmates and 11 employees. In 1989, Fay Vincent was elected commissioner of Major League Baseball, succeeding the late A. Bartlett Giamatti. In 1993, at the White House, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO chairman Yasser Arafat shook hands after signing an accord granting limited Palestinian autonomy. “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” premiered on NBC. In 1996, rapper Tupac Shakur died at a Las Vegas hospital six days after he was wounded in a drive-by shooting; he was 25. In 1998, former Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace died in Montgomery at age 79. Ten years ago: Angry mourners swarmed Fallujah, Iraq, a day after eight Iraqi police were killed in a friendly fire incident involving U.S. troops; the U.S. military apologized for the deaths. The California Democratic Party voted to endorse Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante while continuing to support Gov. Gray Davis in the October 7 recall election. Indiana Gov. Frank O’Bannon died at age 73. In Las Vegas, Sugar Shane Mosley beat Oscar De La Hoya, winning a close but unanimous decision to take the WBC and WBA 154-pound titles. Five years ago: Rescue crews ventured out to pluck people from their homes in an all-out search for thousands of Texans who had stubbornly stayed behind overnight to face Hurricane Ike. After wild conjecture over who would play Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on “Saturday Night Live,” writer-performer Tina Fey returned to her old show for an opening sketch featuring her and Fey’s former “Weekend Update” co-host Amy Poehler as Sen. Hillary Clinton. One year ago: Chanting “death to America,” hundreds of protesters angered by an anti-Islam film stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen’s capital and burned the American flag. New York City’s Board of Health passed a ban on the sale of big sodas and other sugary drinks, limiting the size sold at restaurants, concession stands and other eateries to 16 ounces.

Pregnancy Life Center Walk For Life
Information submitted VAN WERT — The Pregnancy Life Center’s annual Walk for Life will take place this Sunday at Fountain Park located on Main Street in Van Wert. Once again there will be live music provided by the group Fortress as the walkers make their way around the two-mile course. The walk will start at 2 p.m. with registration beginning at 1:30 p.m. The event will take less than two hours of your time but will make a lifetime change for many teens, women, and children in the Van Wert area. The goal this year for the Walk is to raise $30,000 through sponsored walkers. This means the PLC will need as many people as possible supporting them at the walk. Remember if you cannot be there that day you can still raise money and walk on your own another time. The PLC has been servicing Van Wert and the surrounding counties since December of 1999. During that time, it has expanded its program by offering longer office hours, more classes and more staff to better service clients. One of the biggest changes came three years ago when the center was able to take its services to teen clients through the Teen Support Program. This program allows the PLC to take classes to pregnant teens at their home school when they are not able to get to the Center. In addition, there has been a middle school-aged abstinence group created through the program called P.I.N.K. (purity, integrity, new ideas, knowledge). This group operated in all three county middle-schools (Crestview, Lincolnview and Van Wert) this past year as well as at The Resource Center and LifeLinks. “This program has been a vision of the PLC’s for several years, and it has been amazing to see it succeed,” said PLC Director Trina Langdon. “Above all, we were delighted to see the program grow and the desire for young girls to be involved.” When all schools and classes were actively involved in P.I.N.K., the program would service approximately 100 girls a week. Adding this programming to the PLC cost the center an additional $18,000 per year. “So far we have been blessed to have the financing available for this program, however we know that could change at any time. We would hate to see a successful program only last for a few years due to funding. This is a program that is needed and valuable to many in this area,” Langdon said. Aside from the service to pregnant teens and the abstinence program, the PLC also offers free pregnancy tests, material support, spiritual guidance and educational classes, such as pre-natal, baby care, parenting, etc. How the program works is that by attending classes at the center, a mother can earn a baby store

VAN WERT — The West Ohio Food Bank (WOFB) is pleased to announce that a donation of $5,000 has been made by the United Way of Van Wert County to the Freezer Fund at WOFB. This donation along with donations from the United Way of Shelby County and a major grant from the Governor’s office along with other donations by concerned individuals, churches, business and organizations brings the second phase of this important $120,000 capital project nearer completion. As it stands now, the WOFB needs to raise about $23,000 to complete this project. The freezer project has become a great beneficiary of the commitment of the United Way’s of this area with the United Way of Hancock County, through its Halt Hunger Initiative fund, committed to the project as well. WOFB CEO Gary Bright said that he is hopeful that others will “step up to the plate and help us complete this important project.” Bright added that “upon completion of this project the food bank will enter a campaign to add sustaining partners who have a vision of ending hunger together in West Central Ohio as donors, volunteers, advocates, or engaging in this vision with us in other ways.” The industrial freezer and refrigeration units are a key component in the operation of the food bank as they allow for the storage of 11 semi truck loads of frozen products and an additional five truck loads of refrigerated products. Capacity of that amount of frozen and refrigerated product allows the food bank to safely serve the needs of the approximate 175 programs, agencies, shelters, kitchens and pantries in the 11 counties served by the West Ohio Food Bank. “There was a time early in our history when we had to turn away ww millions of pounds of donated food due to a lack of freezer and cooler www.e space and this urgently needed improvement will ensure that we will not have to be in that position again.” Key projects in the future for the food bank will include the replacement of one of the refrigerated box trucks, as well as the addition of another refrigerated box truck. Additionally, several upgrades to the building will increase the efficiency of the overall operation of the facility. WOFB is proud of the efficiency of the overall operation that directs 91 cents out of every donated dollar to providing food to With an Edward Jones IRA, any e those in need. The important fact is that for everyRoth donated dollar, With an Edward Jones IRA, any earn WOFB can distribute eight meals through ourRoth partner agencies.

1.9-pound healthy mandrill born at Col. zoo
Man gets 27 years in murderfor-hire plot
COLUMBUS (AP) — The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in central Ohio has a new resident: a baby mandrill. Officials announced Thursday the healthy 1.9pound mandrill boy was born at the zoo early on Monday. The zoo in a statement said its animal care team had to step in and care for the mandrill after his mother stopped providing him with neonatal care. The mandrill’s mother, Mandisa, initially showed maternal instincts, but she stopped after other members of the mandrill troop showed interest in the baby. Zoo officials say they hope to reunite the baby with his mother in the near future. Mandrills are the largest of all monkeys. Officials say it is unknown when visitors will be able to see the baby.
COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio man has been sentenced to 27 years in prison for charges stemming from a murderfor-hire plot targeting his exwife. The sentence against 60-year-old Daniel W. Lytle came Thursday in Columbus. The Lockbourne man and co-defendant Brad A. Fickenworth, of Columbus, had been charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated murder. Lytle faced other charges. Fickenworth was sentenced to 11 years in prison last month. WCMH in Columbus reports that prosecutors during the trial said Lytle had tried to harm his ex-wife in multiple occasions. In one attempt, prosecutors alleged, Lytle drove an unidentified person to her home and workplace to show the would-be assassin where to find her.

pass and baby bucks to use at the PLC’s baby store. The store is stocked by donations from individuals and churches in the community, and has such items as diapers, wipes, new and used clothes and blankets, baby hygiene items, including wash, shampoo and rash ointment, and baby furniture. The PLC does not have any income guidelines. Anyone is welcome to use the center and each client’s involvement is up to them. The PLC will service approximately 300 teens and women and their children in a given year. This includes doing about 120 pregnancy tests and intakes. The PLC has proven to be a necessity to many in the area which is why continued funding of this local ministry is important. The PLC does not accept any government funding, but operates entirely on local giving and fundraising. Langdon said that, “nearly half of our budget runs off of how our Walk for Life does. Everything we do or don’t do next year is dependent upon what happens with this year’s Walk.” So far the Walk has brought in around $16,000 in corporate and church sponsorship. That portion of the fundraising was highly successful and you can see a full listing of those sponsors on the website www.pregnancylifecenter.org. Each individual who raises at least $200 will earn a free commemorative Walk for Life T-shirt. There is also a goal to have over 400 walkers in attendance on Sunday. “Any time you have more people in attendance, it adds a level of excitement,” said Langdon. “Plus it is always nice to see everyone together, on one day, who value and appreciate what this ministry is doing on a daily basis.” If you would like to be involved in this year’s Walk for Life, walk sponsorship forms are available at most Van Wert County and surrounding area churches. You can also visit the Pregnancy Life Center at 215 N. Market St in Van Wert or go to their website www.pregnancylifecenter.org for a walk form.

Striving to be a kind person
that we should strive for the kind of overarching goodness or kindness that makes us a thoroughly good person. And, not just good in this or that respect, but good across the board. Of course, no one is perfect, but by striving to be kind and good in all of our dealings, both at work and at home, and with our friends as well as our adversaries, we will be well on our way to perfecting our character and becoming more godlike.
In St. Paul’s inventory of the fruit of the spirit, in the fifth chapter of Galatians, we find kindness, the translation of the Greek word “chrestotes.” The Greek word “chrestotes” has the connotation of goodness, and not just goodness as a quality, but goodness as expressed in actions or deeds. The person who exemplifies this type of kindness will be a genuinely good person, expressing their goodness by acting in ways that are gentle,
patient and self-controlled. The person who is kind in this sense will naturally put others at ease because they can be more relaxed, knowing that this person will be kind and gentle. We do well to remember that when St. Paul speaks of the “fruit of the spirit,” that fruit is singular, not plural. If we are truly walking by the spirit, we will possess all of these virtues. This surely does not mean that we won’t struggle, perhaps with some more than others, but rather
Put on then, as God’s Chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness and patience.

Local Round Up
Lady Knights sweep Jeffcats in NWC
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — The game of volleyball is perhaps the biggest when it comes to momentum. The Jefferson crew found that out the hard way Thursday night at home versus perennial Northwest Conference power Crestview at Jefferson High School. The Wildcats couldn’t finish set one, they struggled in the middle part of the second set and never got off the ground the third set in losing 25-18, 25-20, 25-8. “We’re too inconsistent. If we finish the first set like we should have, it’s a whole different match,” Jefferson coach Joy DeVelvis noted. “In the middle set, we played well for a while and then stopped playing and started over-analyzing. In the third set, we stopped running our offense; that made it so much easier for them to run theirs.” Crestview mentor Tammy Gregory felt her team had to work its way into the match. “This was our third match this week in perhaps the hottest week of the year; we just had to start playing our game,” she explained. “We made a few too many errors for my taste and we just had to start playing with more confidence.” The first installment of this match was back and forth, with both squads having their moments. They took turns making good plays — either with the serve, the attacks at the net, digs or passing — and

making mistakes. Jefferson senior Katie Goergens (8 kills) and classmate Rileigh Stockwell (4 kills) in particular got going early, while the Lady Knights (6-1, 2-0 NWC) turned to a varied attack with setters Mackenzie Riggenbach (junior; 24 assists, 2 aces) and sophomore Haley Helm (11 assists, 10 kills, 2 aces) at the controls. Tied at 12-12 as Jefferson (3-5, 0-2 NWC) junior Desteni Lear put one down off the Knight defense, Helm bombed one to the other side of the court to give the visitors the lead for good. Try as the Red and White might, the Knights slowly put the opener in their column, getting the 1-set lead as senior Grace Callow (4 kills) put a bomb down. See WILDCATS, page 7
Logano defends spot in NASCAR’s Chase field
By JENNA FRYER Associated Press CHICAGO — Joey Logano defended his place in the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship on Thursday, rattling off his season statistics as proof he earned his spot in the 12-driver field regardless of any help he may have received in the deciding race. And make no mistake, Logano said: If anybody helped him at Richmond, he had no clue. The latest driver caught in the fallout of NASCAR’s investigation into Saturday night’s race at Richmond, Logano learned Wednesday that radio traffic appeared to show Front Row Racing’s crew chief and spotter talking about David Gilliland giving Logano a pivotal spot on the track in exchange for something unidentified from Penske Racing. There’s nothing in Penske radio transmissions to indicate wrongdoing but NASCAR announced Thursday it is still looking into the incident. “That is new stuff to me. Obviously there is no transcript on our radio of anything said about it (and) obviously I would have known about it if that was the case,” Logano said. Logano wondered if a discussion on top of the spotter stand would have been a big deal even if it did occur. “That is stuff that happens week in and week out with spotters. They are up there communicating back and forth trying to work deals out — ‘Hey, help me out here, I will help you out here, let’s work together.’ That happens all the time,” Logano explained. “I don’t look at it as being a big deal at all.” NASCAR might not share that view as it heads into Sunday’s first Chase race at Chicagoland Speedway marred by the first major scandal on the 10-year anniversary of the championshipdeciding format. There’s always been the potential for multi-car teams to band together in an effort to win the championship. NASCAR decided Michael Waltrip Racing crossed the line at Richmond, where the team was accused of attempting to manipulate the race to get Martin Truex Jr. into the Chase. As part of its punishment, NASCAR took the unprecedented step of replacing Truex in the Chase with Ryan Newman, citing
St. John’s Lindsay Mohler tries to dribble the soccer ball past a Continental defender during girls action Thursday at the Annex. (Delphos Herald/Randy Shellenbarger) Information Submitted Pirates whitewash Lady Jays DELPHOS — Continental’s girls soccer crew handed host St. John’s a 3-0 shutout Thursday at the St. John’s Annex. Scoring for the Lady Pirates were Amelia Weller (assist to Paige Ordway) and Ordway in the first half and Sloane Zachrich (assist to McKenna Scott) in the second. Continental outshot the Blue Jays 25-8 (16-9 on-goal); Samantha Wehri was credited with 11 saves for the Jays and Emma Recker seven for the visitors. The visitors had a 6-2 edge in corner kicks. “They scored the first goal under three minutes; unfortunately, we made a defensive mistake and Continental benefited from it. The second goal was also an error on our part,” St. John’s coach John Munoz explained. “Both teams played a very physical first half. In the second half, we played harder and communicated better, with better passes and runs. Madison (Kreeger) had a total of six shots on-goal, two that hit the crossbar and unfortunately, the ball didn’t appear to have crossed the goal line. “A lot of our runs, especially the two that hit the bar, were created in an excellent transition from our defensive line who had an excellent game. Continental then scored a third goal. The girls played well tonight; it was a game with a lot of back and forth. Both teams were able to create a lot of fast transitions and played excellent defense. Other than the small mistakes that cost us the goals, the girls never gave up and played with a lot of heart.” St. John’s hosts Elida 1 p.m. Saturday. See ROUND UP, page 7
Snedeker zooms out in front at BMW; Tiger 3 back
Associated Press LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Brandt Snedeker was making so many birdies that even an 18-foot putt looked like a mere tap-in. When he finished his amazing run Thursday in the BMW Championship, he had seven straight birdies on his card and an 8-under 63 at blustery Conway Farms. “You get on runs like that, you get excited for the next hole because you know something good is going to happen, because you’re in such a good frame of mind and everything is going in the right direction,” Snedeker said. In this case, everything was going in — a 15-foot putt from the fringe on the 13th, another 15-footer on the next hole when he used the blade of his sand wedge to bump the ball out of the short rough, and a 40-footer from the fringe on the 17th stood out to him. That gave him a 1-shot lead over Zach Johnson in the third FedEx Cup playoff event. Tiger Woods sounded disgusted with his round of 66, mainly because he had a pair of 3-putt bogeys and missed a 4-foot birdie putt over his last five holes. “I’m not exactly real happy,” Woods said. “I played well and I just didn’t get much out of that round. I missed three little short ones in there and then played the par 5s even par. That’s just not very good.” Steve Stricker, Charl Schwartzel and Kevin Streelman also were at 66. The opening round was mainly about the debut of Conway Farms, a Tom Fazio design north of Chicago which has a blend of strong holes and plenty of birdie opportunities on par 4s where players hit wedge for their second shot. Low scoring was predicted, and Snedeker’s round was proof of that. But as the wind picked up and shifted directions, the course was far from a pushover. Rickie Fowler opened with a pair of double bogeys, followed by a pair of bogeys. He rallied for a 77. Rory McIlroy made a double bogey — his ninth of the FedEx Cup playoffs — on his second hole and then 3-putted from 4 feet for a triple bogey and staggered to a 78. Lee Westwood, fighting severe pain in his back and ribs, had an 80. “There’s a good mixture of really hard holes and really good birdie opportunities. I think that makes for exciting golf,” Phil Mickelson said after opening with a 70. “That’s why we have such a discrepancy in scores.” The top 30 players in the FedEx Cup after the BMW Championship advance to the Tour Championship next week and a shot at the $10 million prize.
the dive that MWR driver Brian Vickers took in the closing laps to aid Truex. Ironically, Vickers had to help Logano’s final finishing position to get Truex in the Chase. Logano made no apologies for how the race played out — MWR did what it did on its own and Logano used six straight top-10 finishes and three straight top-5 finishes to put himself into Chase contention. “It wasn’t to help me, it was to help themselves,” Logano added. “Indirectly, it helped me and hey, thanks, all right, that is fine, whatever. If you want to write a story about how we shouldn’t be here because of what happened with the Waltrip cars, go ahead but I think it is a bunch of B.S. if you write a story like that because if you look at the numbers, it proves everyone wrong.” Between MWR and Front Row Motorsports, Logano gained enough positions to finish 10th in the final standings and bump Jeff Gordon from the Chase. The 4-time series champion is furious over how it’s played out and only gotten angrier with everything he’s learned about the alleged manipulation. “It’s unlike any I’ve ever felt before, really,” Gordon added. “Because you feel like as a team that we did everything that we could do to make in the Chase and I’m so proud of that effort … You realize that people all want to do things for their teammates to help them but you also know there’s certain lines that have to be drawn with that.” Although drivers quietly debated whether NASCAR should have expanded the field this year to 14 drivers to deal with the Richmond dilemma — allowing Truex and Gordon into Chase — NASCAR President Mike Helton essentially ruled that out Monday in announcing the penalties when he said the sanctioning body couldn’t address “the ripple effect” of MWR’s actions. Still, there were jokes Thursday that Gordon could show up at any moment as NASCAR continued to investigate Front Row’s radio transmissions. “I am sure Jeff is hoping there is a favorable ruling for him to be in the Chase, although we just took a new Chase picture, and I don’t know if we are going to be taking another one in a day or two,” said Gordon teammate Jimmie Johnson, the 5-time champion. “Unfortunately, I think he’s going to be disappointed.”
Ohio NFL Capsules
Associated Press Bengals QB Dalton has impressive opening game CINCINNATI — Andy Dalton fit a sideline throw between two defenders, dropping it just over the one in front for a completion. He made a pump-fake and hit A.J. Green for a 45-yard touchdown. Virtually everything he did was right on the mark in the Cincinnati Bengals’ season opener, an impressive showing that got overlooked in how it ended. The third-year quarterback completed a career-best 78.7 percent of his passes during a 24-21 loss at Chicago on Sunday, one that came down to turnovers and defensive gaffes. Dalton was 26-of-33 for 282 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, one of which went off Green’s hands. It was as flawless a game as Dalton has played in the NFL. “He threw the ball well,” offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said. “He had a great game. This was one of his better games here. There’s still room for improvement.” If Dalton plays near the level he did in the opener, the Bengals (0-1) will have a good chance of reaching the playoffs for the third season in a row, something that’s never happened in franchise history. Dalton completed passes to seven different players, including rookie tight end Tyler Eifert and running back Giovani Bernard, blending the newcomers into a more diversified approach. “I think we’ve just gotten better as a team, I think that’s a big part of it,” Dalton said. “I feel like I’ve improved, I feel like the offense has improved and (we’re) finding ways to keep getting completions and moving the chains. I think that’s a big part of it. “Hopefully we can keep that up and keep completing a lot of balls and keep the percentage up.” He’ll get a good gauge on that Monday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1) throw their funky blitzes his way. He’s 1-3 career against Pittsburgh, which has contained him most of the time. In those four games, Dalton has completed only 52 percent of his throws for 688 yards and four touchdowns with five interceptions and nine sacks. He notched his first win against them last December, a 13-10 victory at Heinz Field that put the Bengals back in the playoffs and knocked out the Steelers. It was a breakthrough win in many ways, and the Bengals want to show it wasn’t a fluke. “For us to go into Pittsburgh last year and win when there was a lot on the line, that was big for us as a team,” Dalton said. “Obviously it’s a new year but we know the kind of games we play when we play the Steelers. They’re always tough games. They’re always close games. “And so, we know the importance of playing these guys and how good they are.” The Bengals look to be a lot better themselves with Eifert and Bernard. Eifert had five catches for 47 yards in Cincinnati’s 2-tight end alignment with Pro Bowler Jermaine Gresham. Bernard caught one pass for eight yards and forced the Bears’ defense to account for him out of the backfield. The Bengals had touchdown drives that covered 97, 91 and 80 yards against one of the NFL’s top defenses. “I felt good about a lot of things,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “I’m excited about our guys.” Two turnovers undercut what they did. Green had a pass go off his hands for an interception inside the Bears’ 20-yard line. And Mohamed Sanu fumbled inside the 20 after a catch, giving Chicago a chance to pull off its go-ahead touchdown drive. Except for those two mistakes by the receivers, the offense was impressive. Green had nine catches for 162 yards and two touchdowns. Richardson wants to carry load for Browns BEREA — Trent Richardson has that unassuming way. With his bright smile, cheerful attitude and a soft Southern accent that could fry chicken, the Browns running back makes anything sound diplomatic. Richardson did everything he could Thursday not to criticize Cleveland’s coaches for not giving him the ball more last week in a loss to Miami. But Richardson’s message was loud clear: He wants more touches. See NFL, page 7
Westwood is at No. 30 and likely played himself out of a trip to East Lake, though he didn’t appear to be healthy enough to play. McIlroy is at No. 41 and all but took himself out of the Tour Championship. He needs to finish somewhere around seventh in the 70-man field. His 78 put him in a tie for 66th. “It’s going to be a very uphill task,” McIlroy said. “I’ll try to get to even par as quickly as I can.” That still might not be enough the way Snedeker is playing. Snedeker is at No. 9 in the FedEx Cup and assured of being the first defending FedEx Cup champion to make it to the Tour Championship. He is trying to move into the top five, for those players have a clear shot at the $10 million bonus — all they have to do is win at East Lake no matter what anyone else does. He wouldn’t have imagined this kind of round at the start of the day. He didn’t warm up well and didn’t feel good with the putter. Snedeker missed the 10th fairway to start his round and had to make an 18-footer for par. He missed the 11th green and had to scramble for par. He missed a good look at birdie from the 12 feet on the next hole. The next hour was a blur. The blustery conditions kept scoring from getting out of hand and the average score was at 71.3.

Kalida girls garner soccer triumph over Jefferson
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer email@example.com FORT JENNINGS — Kalida’s girls soccer team improved its mark to 5-0-1 with a 3-0 defeat of host Jefferson Thursday afternoon/evening at Keith Hamel Memorial Field in Fort Jennings. Though the LadyCats dominated the offense, outshooting the Lady Wildcats (36-6 (25-6 on-goal), the Red and White defense held up in front of junior goalkeeper Kayleigh O’Conner (15 saves), either preventing open shots or getting in the way of others. “I’m extremely proud of how we held up against a very good Kalida team. We easily could have been blown out,” Jefferson coach Josiah Stober commented. “At one point, we had three freshmen playing defense and they played well against some good offensive players. To only be down 1-0 at the half was a big step for our program.” For LadyCat mentor Dave Kehres, it seemed as if it should have been worse. “It seemed like we hit the crossbar 10 times throughout the match,” he said. “We don’t get points for hitting the bar or kicking the ball right at the goalkeeper; that’s why it’s an 8 x 24-foot box to shoot at. She did make some good saves but we didn’t help ourselves.” Kalida, minus three seniors and a freshman due to injury, got numerous chances for players such as junior Jackie Gardner and sophomore Brittany Kahle — who constantly attacked the Wildcat defense — but couldn’t find the mark throughout the contest. One of the best efforts came at 9:50 when Kahle had a 16-yarder deflected by O’Conner but junior Makenna Vorst got the ricochet and just missed wide left from point-blank range. Shortly after that — at 9:33 — the Maroon and White broke through. Gardner got possession of the ball on the left wing and blasted a 16-yarder high side and into the net for a 1-0 lead. With 4:00 showing, Kalida senior Sarah Verhoff got a 1-on-1 chance with O’Conner but the keeper kicked the 14-yarder out of harm’s way. Jefferson had a couple of chances in the first half: at 20:08 on a 25-yard direct kick by junior Kylee Haehn that hit the right post; and with 47 seconds showing, when sophomore Logan Hamilton had a good opening from 14 yards but Kalida sophomore keeper Laine Laudick (3 saves) kicked the ball away and finally got control. The LadyCats continued to press forward and bedevil the Wildcat defense in the Second half, scoring just 58 ticks in. Off a corner kick from the right side, the lefty Gardner found

The soccer ball draws a crowd Thursday at Fort Jennings as Jefferson’s Brandy White and Bailey Miller battle with Kalida’s Brittany Kahle and Jackie Gardner. (Delphos Herald/Randy Shellenbarger) Kahle on the doorstep of the right post and she headed the 5-yarder into the cords. Jefferson (3-4-1) had a chance to score at 36:58 when Haehn had a 28-yarder direct kick but Laudick got the snare. The visitors nearly went up 3-0 at 32:14 but Kahle’s 12-yarder hit the bar. Jefferson junior Adrie Miller was injured at 27:11 and did not return. At 15:12, Kahle’s 18-yarder hit off the bar and O’Conner got the save. At 14:58, Kalida made it 3-0. Off a goal kick, Kahle got a steal outside the 18 box but O’Conner quickly came out to deflect a shot; however, she could not gain control, fell down on a collision and left a wide-open net for Gardner, whose 16-yarder found the mark. O’Conner was also injured on the play but after a few minutes, was able to stay in the match. Delphos had a couple of chances by Haehn: at 14:02, when a 24-yarder was stopped by Laudick; and at 10:31, when a 35-yarder just missed over the top. Kalida made it 4-0 at 10:52 when Gardner got control on the right wing and with O’Conner trying to cut off the angle, her 16-yarder went the opposite side. Jefferson avoided the shutout at 2:36 when Haehn, off a handball 35 yards out, launched a shot that hit the left post and ricocheted on for the final margin of victory. “I like how we never quit in the second half. We kept trying to be aggressive and we had a couple more good shots the second half,” Stober added. “I’m proud of the effort we showed throughout the match. We keep getting better at all the little things and you’re seeing it each time out.” Kalida hosts Cory-Rawson 1 p.m. Saturday. “We have four girls out with injuries. We just found out yesterday that two of them, both seniors, will be out some time,” Kehres added. “That means we have to move some girls around to play different positions and that’s an adjustment. We’re down from 20 players to 16, so we don’t have the depth we’ve had in years past.” Jefferson visits Ada 5 p.m. Monday.

Richardson carried the ball 13 times for 47 yards in the season-opening, 23-10 loss to Miami. But he only gained 14 on five rushes in the second half and did not carry the ball once in the fourth quarter as the Browns tried to rally through the air. “I just don’t think they stopped the running game,” he said, referring to the Dolphins. “I think we stopped it ourselves as far as we were behind and stuff like that. We’ve just got to keep fighting and know that no matter what, we’ve got to stick to our game plan. I guess Coach had another game plan and it went that way.” Richardson’s remarks were similar to what he said many times last season, when he rushed for 950 yards while playing much of it with broken ribs. Richardson wants a heavier workload and feels he can carry the offense. Trouble is, the former first-round pick has either been injured or the Browns have been so far behind in games that they’ve had to pass. But the numbers support Richardson’s’ premise that Browns are at their best when he’s getting the ball. Last season, he averaged 95.8 yards in the five games he had 20 rushing attempts and the Browns went 3-2. When he hasn’t carried the ball 20 times, including in this year’s opener, he’s averaging 47.1 yards and Cleveland is 2-9. Richardson said he has spoken to coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner about getting more touches. Richardson received the ball on four of Cleveland’s first six plays last week and gained 26 yards. But the opening drive ended with quarterback Brandon Weeden getting intercepted. After that, Richardson’s opportunities were limited. Maybe if things had gone according to script, Turner would have given Richardson the ball more. But the score and situation dictated something different. “We came out and we executed four or five plays awfully well,” Turner said. “Then they hit us with a couple run blitzes. They came at us when we started getting a little bit of run and then we didn’t execute as well.” Richardson’s number is certain to be called this week as the Browns (0-1) visit the Baltimore Ravens, who have had plenty of time to lick their wounds after being embarrassed against Denver. The Ravens’ defense no longer features Ray Lewis, or Ed Reed, but is still formidable. Richardson, who rushed for 105 yards on 25 attempts in his second game against Baltimore last season, is itching to duplicate that game. He can’t though, if he doesn’t get the ball. but they have to find it within themselves to do so. It’s like we get to the top of the hill but then fall back down.” Crestview won the junior varsity match 25-14, 25-21 as the Wildcats fell to 2-5, 0-2 NWC. “Courtney took over the third set. We try to focus on the team — it doesn’t matter who leads us in kills, for example — but we like to get her the ball,” Gregory added. “Everything came together: we made good passes to our setters and our setters gave her the ball in good position to hit it well. Having two setters is a luxury, so we don’t have one running all over the place.” Crestview hosts a tri-match versus Kalida and Antwerp at 10 a.m. Saturday. Jefferson visits Ada at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

The Wildcats didn’t seem to let that bother them in set two, riding Goergens and senior Lindsay Deuel (7 kills) — as well as a few hitting miscues by their foe — to grab a 10-5 edge on a hitting error, forcing Gregory to call time. Back came the Red, White and Blue behind players such as junior Courtney Trigg (14 kills, 4 stuffs, 2 aces) as she controlled the middle. They used a 16-4 spurt to take command at 21-14 on a Trigg ace. Goergens did her best, putting in three kills and a stuff the rest of the set, but the Wildcats couldn’t answer enough in falling behind 2 sets to none on a hit off the Delphos block by Helm on set point. Trigg flat out took over in the third set, compiling eight kills — including some bombs to the other side of
the court — and a pair of stuffs as the Knights rode a 12-0 spurt, 11 of them with libero sophomore Tianna Rager at the serve, to take total command at 15-1. From then on, it was only a matter of time before the sweep was completed as Helm put down another attack off the Jefferson back row to secure that sweep. Junior Brooke Culp set the Jefferson table with 16 assists, while senior Kamie Pulford (6-of-8 digs) and classmate Gabrielle Pimpas (5-of-7) led the defense. Senior Kirstin Hicks added six kills for the guests and junior Megan Hartman five. “Right now, it’s so much the mental part that we’re struggling with. We have to play at such a high level all the time; we can’t have any letdowns,” DeVelvis added. “We talk about finishing, like the first set,

Teach young child that it’s not OK to lie
DEAR DOCTOR K: Lately my 4-year-old has started lying to me. She’ll say she didn’t break a toy, or push her brother, when I know she did. How should I handle this? DEAR READER: Almost all preschoolers will lie at one time or another -- and it’s clear they know they’re lying, and that they shouldn’t be doing that. For example, when one child hits another and is challenged about it, here’s the usual sequence of lies: “I didn’t do it”; “I didn’t mean it”; “It didn’t hurt anyway!” Each lie admits to the preceding lie. It’s as if the child realizes there’s no way he will get away with the lie, so his only hope is to dismiss the importance of the transgression. Some preschoolers may not yet realize that it is wrong to lie. Now, at age 4, is the time to teach your child that lying is not acceptable. Doing so at a young age will help mold your child’s behavior as she gets older. To encourage truthfulness when you suspect wrongdoing, be upfront but not confrontational as you question your child. For example, ask an open-ended question like, “How did your walls get crayon all over them?” rather than a closed-ended one like, “Did you scribble all over your walls?” If your child has told a lie, keep your response short and to the point. Be sure to tell her first that you believe she has lied, and because of that, consequences will follow. If your child denies drawing on her walls, for example, you might say, “I know that you drew on your walls, as I saw you do it earlier today. It is never OK to lie to me. You won’t be able to play with your crayons for the rest of the day.” Do not ignore these seemingly small or harmless lies.

It is always helpful to praise your preschooler for being good, too. Compliment her when she tells the truth. Remind her: “I’m glad you told the truth about what happened. When you tell me the truth, I can trust you, and that makes me happy.” Remember that children learn right from wrong by watching and listening to the adults around them, especially their parents. If they see you telling a little white lie, they will conclude that lying is acceptable. “Do as I say, not as I do” is never an effective strategy, especially when dealing with young children. A colleague of mine at Harvard Health Publications has a daughter. We’ll call her Cleo, short for a certain very self-confident Egyptian queen. Like all kids, Cleo sometimes does things she knows she shouldn’t. And when challenged, she sometimes lies about it. But more often, she is refreshingly honest ... and witty. Here’s a recent gem, as related by her mom: Mom: “Cleo! You know you’re not supposed to throw a ball in the living room. Why on earth did you do that?” Cleo: “I think it’s because I’m a kid, Mom.” (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Take more care in how handle your personal relationships in the coming months. A growing interest in different philosophies or cultural backgrounds will lead to new horizons. Sharing your ideals and values will boost your reputation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Patience coupled with tender, loving care will bring you closer to someone you enjoy spending time with. Plan to make personal changes that will improve your status. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don’t overdo it. Generosity will generate a false friendship with someone looking for a handout. Draw the line and be prepared to change your plans when it comes to entertainment and socializing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Do the preparatory work that will make planned alterations to your life or your home easier. Make sure that you involve all necessary parties for maximum harmony. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Progressive action will result in greater productivity. Stand tall and wield opportunities like a pro. Don’t let emotions mess with your mind. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You’ll be greatly impacted by the actions of others. Emotions will be close to the surface, and expressing your feelings will help you recognize who is on your side and who isn’t. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Stick close to home and avoid any interaction with authority figures or agencies that can cause setbacks. Use your intelligence to find loopholes that will help you get what you want. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It’s a good time to tackle pressing business matters. The influence you have on the outcome of a situation that could positively shake things up is far greater than you realize. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You’ll have trouble making up your mind today.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — NASA’s Voyager 1 probe has left the solar system, boldly going where no machine has gone before. Thirty-six years after it rocketed away from Earth, the plutonium-powered spacecraft has escaped the sun’s influence and is now cruising 11 1/2 billion miles away in interstellar space, or the vast, cold emptiness between the stars, NASA said Thursday. And just in case it encounters intelligent life out there, it is carrying a gold-plated, 1970s-era phonograph record with multicultural greetings from Earth, photos and songs, including Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode,” along with Beethoven, Bach, Mozart and Louis Armstrong. Never before has a manmade object left the solar system as it is commonly understood. “We made it,” said an ecstatic Ed Stone, the mission’s chief scientist, who waited decades for this moment. NASA celebrated by playing the “Star Trek” theme at a news conference in Washington. Voyager 1 actually made its exit more than a year ago, scientists said. But since there’s no “Welcome to Interstellar Space” sign out there, NASA waited for more evidence before concluding that the probe had in fact broken out of the hot plasma bubble surrounding the planets. Voyager 1, which is about the size of a small car, is drifting in a part of the universe littered with the remnants of ancient star explosions. It will study exotic particles and other phenomena and will radio the data back to Earth, where the Voyager team awaits the starship’s discoveries. It takes about 17 hours for its signal to reach Earth.
NASA: Voyager 1 probe has left the solar system
Kerry talks tough in Syria Women outrun men in encounter with Russia regaining jobs since recession
PAUL WISEMAN AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON — The slowly recovering U.S. job market has helped women rebound faster than men: They’ve now regained all the jobs they lost to the Great Recession. Men are still 2.1 million jobs short. And the gender gap is expected to persist until the job market is much healthier. To understand why, consider the kinds of jobs that are, and aren’t, being added. Lower-wage industries, like retail, education, restaurants and hotels, have been hiring the fastest. Women are predominant in those areas. Men, by contrast, dominate sectors like construction and manufacturing, which have yet to recover millions of jobs lost in the recession. “It’s a segregated labor market, and men and women do work in different industries, and even in different areas within industries,” says Heidi Hartmann, an economist and president of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research. Economists have long known that the recession hit men the hardest. “A man-cession,” some have called it. Or a “she-covery.” The August jobs report issued last week spotlighted the divergence: The unemployment rate for women was 6.8 percent — nearly a full percentage point less than the 7.7 percent rate for men. All told, 68 million women said they were employed last month. That topped the 67.97 million who had jobs when the recession began in December 2007, the government says. Among men, 76.2 million were employed last month. That was down from 78.3 million in December 2007. Since the recession officially ended in June 2009, education and health services have helped drive job growth: That sector added nearly 1.6 million jobs, the second-most of any category. And women gained nearly 1.1 million of them. While that category includes some goodpaying jobs such as nurses and physical therapists, many are lower-paying positions such as home health care aides. Women also make up more than half of the workforce in hotels and restaurants, which has produced the third-largest job gain of any industry. Heidi Shierholz, an economist with the Economic Policy Institute, says the lackluster economy has limited the growth of good jobs — the kind traditionally held by men. Lowpaying jobs, more typically held by women, have been growing instead. The trend likely won’t reverse, she says, until economic growth picks up and unemployment falls significantly below August’s 7.2 percent. That might be two years away, Shierholz says. “It’s not like women are fine now,” Shierholz says. “Women have been disproportionately in lower-quality jobs.” Even though women’s employment has recovered faster than men’s, there are still more men with jobs than women. And more men than women have found work since the recession ended. Yet men still haven’t recovered all their losses because the cuts were so deep in sectors such as manufacturing and construction. “We hope, and expect, that men’s employment will come back to normal” as the economy strengthens, Hartmann says. Female workers have regained their job losses in the recession even though they were hit hard by government budget cuts, especially by states and localities. Since the end of 2007, state and local governments have cut 689,000 jobs. In a report last year, the liberal Economic Policy Institute calculated that women accounted for 70 percent of those lost jobs. NANCY BENAC Associated Press GENEVA — Striking a tough tone, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry opened swiftly convened talks with Russia on Syria’s chemical weapons Thursday by bluntly rejecting a Syrian pledge to begin a “standard process” by turning over information rather than weapons — and nothing immediately. That won’t do, Kerry declared at an opening news conference, a stone-faced Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at his side. “The words of the Syrian regime in our judgment are simply not enough.” “This is not a game,” Kerry said of the latest developments in a series that has rapidly gone from deadly chemical attacks to threats of retaliatory U.S. air strikes to Syrian agreement with a Russian plan to turn over the weapons and, finally, to the crucial matter of working out the difficult details. “We believe there is nothing standard about this process at this moment because of the way the regime has behaved,” Kerry declared. And he kept alive the threat of U.S. military action, saying the turnover of weapons must be complete, verifiable and timely — “and finally, there ought to consequences if it doesn’t take place.” Adding to the drama, Russian President Vladimir Putin weighed in from afar, raising eyebrows with an opinion piece in The New York Times that chided Americans for seeing themselves as “exceptional.” That was an apparent reference to a comment President Barack Obama made in his Syria speech Tuesday night, explaining why he felt the U.S. needed to take action. Congress has shown little inclination to authorize military action, and a vote on that has been put off. Putin also warned that a U.S. strike against Syria because of chemical weapons use could unleash new terrorist attacks. And he still maintained there is “every reason to believe” the weapons were used by rebels and not by Assad’s military. In Washington, Obama’s spokesman said Russia was “isolated and alone” in that view. Obama, for his part, said simply that he was hoping for “a concrete result” from the talks. The back-and-forth was a stark indication of the challenging work ahead as Kerry, Lavrov and their teams of chemical weapons experts plunge into talks aimed at finding agreement on how to dismantle the chemical weapons amid the confusion and danger of Syria’s civil war. Lavrov seemed to contradict Kerry’s negative view of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s offer to provide details on his country’s chemical arsenal beginning 30 days after it signs an international convention banning such weapons. Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations said that as of Thursday his country had become a full member of the treaty, which requires destruction of all chemical weapons.
Twitter tweets it’ll go public
MICHAEL LIEDTKE AP Technology Writer
NEW YORK — Twitter finally has decided to go public, but it’s taking a route that will keep most of the details about its business private for a while longer. The company aptly used its own news-making short messaging service Thursday afternoon to announce that it has filed documents for an initial public offering of stock. But the information filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission is sealed because Twitter is taking advantage of federal legislation passed last year that allows companies with less than $1 billion in revenue in its last fiscal year to avoid submitting public IPO documents. The secrecy will likely help Twitter minimize the public hoopla and intense scrutiny that surrounded the initial public offerings of other high-profile social networking companies, including Facebook Inc., which went public in May 2012. The 7-year-old company posted on its official Twitter account that it has “confidentially submitted an S-1 to the SEC for a planned IPO.” A subsequent tweet said simply: “Now, back to work.” It’s accompanied by a blurry photo of people working in the company’s San Francisco headquarters.
WATERTOWN, Wis. (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama led Wisconsin high school students in a toast to “the best drink in town” Thursday as she launched a campaign to encourage people to drink more water — something she said was the single best thing Americans could do to improve their health. “Water is so basic, and because it is so plentiful, sometimes we just forget about it amid all the ads we watch on television and all the messages we receive every day about what to eat and drink,” Mrs. Obama said. “The truth is, water just gets drowned out.” The first lady launched the campaign for the nonprofit Partnership for a Healthier America in Watertown in part because the city has been recognized for the quality of its water. While the new campaign is widely viewed as encouraging people to drink water rather than sugary sodas, partnership president and CEO Larry Soler said it is not about pushing a particular type of water or stressing it over other beverages. Mrs. Obama has counseled people in the past to switch from soda to water and has talked about seeing improvement in her two daughters’ health after making that change in their diets. She spoke Thursday about seeing her daughters become more alert after they began drinking more water, but she did not mention any switch from soda. The first lady long ago backed away from criticism of soda because her anti-childhood obesity initiative, “Let’s Move,” is premised on the idea that change won’t happen without buy-in from the food industry, New York University food scientist Marion
Obama water campaign raises environmental issue
Nestle said. The latest campaign is backed by the American Beverage Association, which represents the makers of soft drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks and juices as well as bottled water, and the International Bottled Water Association. Nestle said it actually helps the major soft drink companies, which have seen a decrease in soda sales and are investing heavily in promoting bottled water brands and other drinks, she said. “This is a partnership with soda companies to promote their bottled waters,” Nestle said. Environmental advocates say they’re disappointed the campaign ignores concerns about plastic bottles ending up in waterways and reductions in federal funding for public water systems. “We applaud the first lady’s initiative to encourage people to choose water over sugary beverages, but we do have concerns that this partnership is working in conjunction with the bottled water industry and wish that instead she were encouraging people to choose the much more affordable, more regulated option of tap water,” said Emily Wurth, water program director for Food and Water Watch. Wurth cited a federal report that found only onefourth of plastic water bottles are recycled. She also noted that bottled water often comes from public water systems. While Mrs. Obama did not promote tap water over bottled water, many public utility workers in Wisconsin saw her visit as an endorsement of their work. Mrs. Obama noted Watertown had been rec-

Raging fire strikes at heart of Sandyhit NJ town

ognized as having the best-tasting water in the state — an award it received in 2010 from the Wisconsin Water Association, which represents public utilities. “You know what you’re getting with tap water because it’s a regulated thing,” water association vice chair Ann-Perry Witmer said. “It really is the best tasting and the healthiest for you.” Watertown, about midway between Milwaukee and Madison, is home to Wis-Pak Inc., which manufactures and distributes Pepsi-Cola products — including Aquafina. It’s also home to 7-Up Bottling Co., a family-owned business that distributes bottled water and other beverages. Soler said after the first lady’s speech the campaign would be most successful by not advocating one water source over another, noting the choice of what type of water to drink lies with individuals. Mrs. Obama drank from a reusable water bottle at the launch, and the campaign includes a push for more public drinking stations. Sam Kass, executive director of “Let’s Move,” has cited federal statistics showing about 40 percent of Americans drink less than half the typically recommended eight cups of water a day. Nestle said the message that Americans don’t drink enough water is questionable. “I’m not aware of any nutrition science that backs that up … there’s so much water in food and in what people are eating that unless you’re an elite athlete, at very high altitude or old where your thirst mechanism doesn’t work very well, it’s just simply a non-issue in my view,” Nestle said.

Answers to Thursday’s questions: In the British line of peerage, an earl ranks higher but is by no means at the top. From highest to lowest, the line of peerage runs as follows: Duke and Duchess, Marquess (or Marquis) and Marchioness, Earl and Countess, Viscount and Viscountess and Baron and Baroness. Henry Pu-yi, from 1908 to 1912, was the last emperor of China. From 1934 to 1945, he was emperor of the Japanese puppet state of Manchuko in Manchuria.

20 more were destroyed there. The massive blaze burned four blocks of boardwalk in each of the neighboring communities before workers ripped out a section of the walkway and piled up sand to act as a makeshift fire break. Firefighters were still dousing the remains of the fire well into the night. The fire burned much of the boardwalk that was just rebuilt in time for Memorial Day after being wrecked by Superstorm Sandy.
