Area farm ground brings in possible record price
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor VAN WERT — If anyone was worried that the value of farm ground in Van Wert County was going to fall after two wind farms were constructed in the area, it appears they needn’t have worried. Three tracts of farm ground near the intersection of Richey Road and Elm Sugar Grove Church Road in northern Van Wert County were sold at auction Monday at what many believe is

a record price — $14,055 per acre. “We believe this may be a new record for the county and it certainly shows that Midwestern farmland values continue to be strong,” stated Jerry Ehle, sale manager for Schrader Real Estate and Auction Company in a press release. “We had healthy participation by both farmers and investors and once bidding opened, it moved quickly past $3 million (total for all three tracts). Our high bidder was an investor from the Netherlands.” See RECORD, page 10

Flu shots are available from the Delphos Community Health Professionals from 12:302:30 p.m. on October at the Delphos Senior Citizens, 301 E. Suthoff St. There is no cost for those with Medicare but they must bring their card. The cost is $30 for all others.

City learns about transportation plan
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor DELPHOS — City administration, the Delphos Area Chamber of Commerce, CIC, Delphos Parks Department, Canal Commission and MiamiErie Canal Corridor Association all had a voice at the Allen County Active Transportation Plan Project kickoff meeting in Delphos Thursday. The plan falls under the auspices of Active Allen County, a Center for Disease Control initiative. Activate Allen County has contracted with the Greenway Collaborative and Poggemeyer Design Group to develop an Active Transportation Plan for Allen County. According to Activate Allen County plans, consultants will work to develop a plan that will assess the gaps, barriers and bottlenecks that keep people from walking or biking within a neighborhood and throughout the county over the next year. The program claims a prioritized plan will assist communities with improving quality of life through improved safety, crash reductions, enhanced health and well-being, energy savings and pollution reduction. The purpose of the plan is to reshape the transportation system to make walking and bicycling an easy and safe choice for everyday activities. Greenway Collaborative representative Norman Cox gave the presentation that introduced the program and had participants share their ideas of what their hopes and concerns are and what opportunities they see for downtown Main Street, the surrounding neighborhoods, between Delphos and Lima and between Delphos and Spencerville. According to Delphos Safety Service Director Greg Berquist, Lima, Spencerville and Delphos proposed the first project which would link the three by a hiking, biking and walking path along the canal in Delphos, south to Spencerville, along the railroad tracks from Spencerville to Lima and back to Delphos along State Route 309. Cox said the plan, if implemented, makes a community more attractive to job creators as well as providing benefits for citizens.

“Job creators are looking for vibrant downtowns, green infrastructure, recreation amenities and a creative entrepreneurial environment,” he said. “You could fashion this trail to enhance your downtown and bring more people through Delphos to see what you have to offer.

(Delphos Herald/Nancy Spencer) program can improve quality of life. “A properly-marked trail would increase activity levels, reduce crashes and injuries, enhance health and well-being, reduce pollution and give a sense of place,” he added. The program also promotes rethinking streets, noting that more recreation time is spent on streets than in parks and streets define a community’s character. “You need to look at your

streets and try to see what others see,” Cox said. “Are they busy? Are there people moving around? Who would want to stop at a cafe, no matter how charming it looks, when the streets are deserted?” Participants led Cox on a walking tour of Delphos to assess intersections and well-traveled roads for possible paths of a trail and to explore the points of interest that would be found on the trail.

Dixon says Van Wert County budget good — for now
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor VAN WERT — After nine months, the Van Wert County budget looks to be in good shape, according to County Auditor Nancy Dixon. Dixon gave a report at the Thursday morning meeting of the county department heads. She did note that the $365,000 penalty given the county by the State of Ohio is having a huge effect on the budget. Those funds are included in the 2014 budget under expenses but County Commissioner Thad Lichtensteiger revealed that there is hope growing that the money will be covered by insurance. “We still have that huge $365,000 obligation hanging over our heads, and that’s a huge difference-maker for us because we got a little bit of a chirp from our risk-liability insurance carrier… that they are preparing a document for us to sign. So we’re getting the chirp that perhaps they are going to cover that,” said Lichtensteiger. “And that’s enough of a difference-maker that it moves us from $180,000 in the red to $180,000 in the black just by that one decision there.” The $365,000 penalty was the state asking for federal funds back from the completed sewer project on U.S. 127 and St. Rd. 118 south of Van Wert. The money was used correctly and the project was successfully completed but a piece of paperwork was not filed in a timely manner. Despite the state releasing the funds to the county, an auditor found that the deadline for returning a request for the funds was missed. Since this spring, the commissioners have been appealing to state and federal agencies, as well as talking to political leaders, to find some way to negate the penalty. A payment plan has been scheduled for 2014 with the majority of the balance backloaded while more efforts to negate the fine are made. If Lichtensteiger is correct that the insurer may cover the amount, the county’s financial situation will greatly improve. “We’re hopeful that in the next month we will see some positive outcome from that,” he commented. Commissioner Stan Owens added that even if the insurance claim is not paid, “We’re not just going to walk away when we feel we have a legal avenue to pursue. We’re not just going to walk away from it because we feel they definitely should pay it.” Another major financial consideration is health insurance for county employees. The commissioners have been working for months looking for a better rate. The county’s insurance has been with a five-county consortium for at least 20 years but have not found comparable coverage at a lower price. However, this year, Lichtensteiger noted a few insurance quotes that could save the county significantly. One possibility could cut the insurance funding from a projected $2.25 million for the year down to $1.5-$1.75 million. “We could save some serious money next year,” Lichtensteiger declared. “We’re doing a lot of research and a lot of due diligence before we make an ultimate decision. We’d like to save a bunch of money for the county but we’d also like to be able to save the employees some money. I think that’s our ultimate goal.” Those numbers could drop even farther with the use of private exchanges but those proposals are still under investigation. Another idea being floated to cut expenses is to offer a higher deductible but offer to pay the additional deductible our of county funds. In most cases, employees do not go over the current deductible. “We are trying to be innovative and look at all avenues and lower our costs, and the employee’s costs if possible,” Owens stated.”

Judge tells ONU to cut tuition by still legally dead
at least 20 percent
ADA (AP) — A university in northwest Ohio will lower tuition for the next academic year to what students paid prior to the recession. Ohio Northern University on Thursday announced it will cut the sticker price to college for new students by 20 to 25 percent. Tuition for existing students will be frozen for next year at 2013-2014 rates. The university’s president Daniel DiBiasio says the conventional high-tuition, highfinancial aid model is not sustainable. The school also kicked off a four-year graduation guarantee in most undergraduate programs. Students who meet certain expectations, but aren’t able to graduate in four years will receive a semester for free. Ashland University in northeast Ohio announced a similar initiative in August. The announcements come after a summer pitch by President Barack Obama to overhaul federal student aid.

STATE/LOCAL man he’s Dave Koz and Friends Christmas Tour
Information submitted VAN WERT — Fresh off the sold-out Dave Koz and Friends at Sea Mediterranean cruise and a show at London’s Cadogan Hall, eight-time Grammy nominee Dave Koz is now back in the States, where he’s sitting in with the band on “The Arsenio Hall Show” on Oct. 15 and getting ready for the holidays. Dave always celebrates in a big way, entertaining thousands of his closest friends in a jaunt that takes him from coast to coast. Now celebrating its 16th anniversary, this year’s Dave Koz and Friends Christmas Tour will feature renowned singer Oleta Adams, who first came to prominence when Tears for Fears asked her to appear on their The Seeds of Love album and who has released eight acclaimed CDs of her own, crossing effortlessly between R&B, jazz, popular and gospel music, Jonathan Butler, who was the first black artist played on white stations in his native South Africa and has since earned accolades in the R&B, contemporary jazz and gospel fields, and Japanese born pianist/composer/producer Keiko Matsui, who has shared the stage with everyone from Stevie Wonder to Miles Davis. The tour arrives at The Niswonger Performing Arts Center of Northwest Ohio on at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 10. Tickets range from $29$45 and are available online, www.npacvw.

Autoerotic asphyxiation possible in Castro death
COLUMBUS (AP) — Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro’s death by hanging in his prison cell may not have been suicide after all but an ill-fated attempt to choke himself for a sexual thrill, authorities said in a report issued Thursday. The report also said two guards falsified logs documenting the number of times they checked on Castro before he died. Castro, 53, was found hanging from a bedsheet Sept. 3 just weeks into a life sentence after pleading guilty in August to kidnapping three women off the streets, imprisoning them in his home for a decade and repeatedly raping and beating them. The report, from Ohio’s prison system, raised the possibility that Castro died as a result of autoerotic asphyxiation, in which people achieve sexual satisfaction while choking themselves into unconsciousness. Castro’s pants and underwear were around his ankles when he was found, the report said. He didn’t leave a suicide note, a full psychological evaluation had found no sign he was seriously mentally ill or contemplating suicide and investigators could find no reason he would’ve taken his own life, according to the report. In fact, the day Castro died, the warden had recommended

FINDLAY (AP) — An Ohio judge says a man who stood before him in court is still legally dead. Donald Miller Jr. was declared dead in 1994, eight years after he disappeared from his home in the northwest Ohio town of Arcadia. Miller resurfaced about eight years ago and went to court this week to have the ruling changed. His former wife opposes the move. She says she doesn’t have the money to repay the Social Security benefits that were paid out to her and their two children after Miller was declared dead. The Courier newspaper in Findlay reports that she claims Miller vanished in the 1980s to skip out on child support payments. A Hancock County judge who denied Miller’s request for a reversal of the death ruling calls it a “strange, strange situation.”

Sate minimum wage rising 10 cents in 2014

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s minimum wage is going up 10 cents to $7.95 starting on Jan. 1. The Ohio Department of Commerce on Thursday also said the new minimum for tipped employees will be $3.98 — a 5-cent per hour increase. The state minimum wage is adjusted annually because of a 2006 voter-approved amendment to the Ohio Constitution. Increases are linked to inflation. The minimum wage jumped 15 cents at the beginning of 2013. The Consumer Price Index for urban wage earners and clerical workers rose 1.5 percent during the period used to calculate wage increases. The 2006 changes require wages for non-tipped employees be rounded to the nearest five cents. The state wage for employees at small companies and 14- and 15-year-olds is tied to the federal minimum wage, which is $7.25.

he serve his time apart from the other inmates, an option Castro expressed interest in, the investigation found. The findings were forwarded to the Ohio Highway Patrol “for consideration of the possibility of autoerotic asphyxiation,” the report said. The Highway Patrol said it would have no comment pending the release of its own investigation. Franklin County coroner Jan Gorniak, who classified Castro’s death as a suicide last week, said Thursday that her office was never told his pants were down. But she said she stands by her finding of suicide. In Castro’s cell, officials found a Bible open to John Chapters 2 and 3 and pictures of Castro’s family arranged “in a poster-board fashion,” according to the report. Surveillance video indicates guards didn’t do at least eight required checks on Castro the afternoon and evening before his death and falsified the logs, the report said. Two checks were done just before Castro died. The report also said staff failed to make sure Castro watched a suicide prevention video when he arrived in August. Similar allegations of falsified logs have been made against two other guards in the Aug. 4 suicide of a death row inmate just days before he was to be executed.

Year after year, fans return for an uplifting, high-energy show that offers fresh, unexpected takes on seasonal favorites and hits from each of the artist’s careers. “I Got You (I Feel Good),” the brand new single from Dave Koz and Friends Summer Horns (Concord Records), goes to radio this week. The San Jose Mercury News called Koz and Friends’ rendition of the James Brown classic “a funk-filled fun fest” in a review of the album, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart in June 2013, marking the renowned saxophonist’s seventh No. 1 album. It spent five weeks atop the chart and is still in the Top 10. Fellow saxophone players Gerald Albright, Richard Elliot and Mindi Abair joined Dave on Summer Horns, which pays tribute to the great horn sections that fueled hits by such artists as James Brown, Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, Tower Of Power, Blood, Sweat & Tears and Sly & The Family Stone. “Got To Get You Into My Life,” the collection’s first single, spent seven weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Smooth Jazz chart and was recently nominated for a Soul Train Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Performance.

Moral Bravery

Bravery is knowing the right thing to do and doing it willingly in the face of considerable risk, and even fear, with the full knowledge of the risk. It is not fearlessness; being fearless in the face of danger is reckless or foolhardy and a man who does what he knows to be the right thing despite his fear is undoubtedly braver than the man who feels no fear. Many a brave soldier or firefighter has faced a hail of bullets or gone in to a burning building with great fear in his or her heart, but knowing it was the right thing to do. We usually think of bravery as involving physical risk such as injury or death, but there is also moral bravery, where we risk humiliation or the negative judgement of our friends, family or colleagues. For example, speaking an unpleasant but necessary truth, such as telling someone that what they are doing is wrong, as in blowing the whistle on illegal practices in the workplace. Doing the right thing frequently requires courage, because we are not always rewarded, and may even be punished or ostracized for doing so. St. Thomas Aquinas considered bravery to be crucial for the virtuous life precisely because a kind of moral or psychological courage is often necessary to carry out the other virtues. The good life requires fortitude and endurance because it is sometimes a long and hard journey, and one brave act does not make one brave.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. New K.J.V. 2 Timothy 4:7

Wildcats keep working toward NWC crown; Jays seeking to keep post-season hopes alive
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer Jefferson stands atop the Northwest Conference standings — tied with Ada at 4-0 — and hits the road to Columbus Grove tonight to continue in its quest. St. John’s is basically out of the Midwest Athletic Conference race but still has a shot at the Division VII playoffs, ranking 12th in Region 24, as the Blue Jays host Fort Recovery. JEFFERSON AT COLUMBUS GROVE Jefferson head coach Bub Lindeman figures the B u l l d o g s might be a team with nothing to lose, especially coming off their first win of the season (1-5, 0-3 NWC). “Everything we see from them is they are getting better each Gorman week. They started a lot of inexperienced underclassmane early but they are getting experience and playing better as a result of it,” Lindeman explained. “We see out of them what we saw from Crestview last Mox week as far as their offense goes: a zone read attack; Crestview ran some of it last week but Grove is more out of the gun. Riley Brubaker is their number one runner and he does a nice job of reading the defensive end. “ D e f e n s i v e l y, they run the base 4-3 cover 2; they mix in a couple of other coverages, like man, cover 1 and 3, but what they really do is try to blitz off the edges with their outside linebackers.” Jefferson, coming off a 34-21 victory over Crestview, has an offense averaging 39.8 points and 394.7 yards behind Zavier Buzard (139 rushes, 1,135 yards, 21 TDs; 4 catches, 33 yards, 1), Ross Thompson (9 rushes, 109 yards, 2; 22 catches, 343 yards, 3), Austin Jettinghoff (55-of-97 passing, 783 yards, 5 TDs, 2 picks; 14 punts, 36.4-yard average), Tyler Mox (14 grabs, 215 yards, 1), Joe Gorman (5 for 68), Jordan McCann (4 for 53), Trevor Dudgeon (4 for 46), Kurt Wollenhaupt (27-of-30 extra points) and linemen Adam Crabtree (15 pancake blocks), Justin Stewart (11) and Isaac Illig (11). The defense ceding 10.5 points and 181.2 yards, has Dalton Hicks (44 solo tackles, 31 assists, 4 for losses), Thompson (36 and 20), Gorman (28 and 12), Mox (24 and 12), Illig (26 and 10) and McCann (22 and 13). “We’re six weeks into the season. We have to take care of the football, which we have done well all season; last week’s two interceptions were the first two turnovers of the season,” Lindeman added. “We have to tackle well this week, which we have done well this year. We have to play good, sound, disciplined defensive football this week and do our assignments; we did that better the second half last week once we settled down. We had a turnover early and fell behind, trailing for only the second time all season. “We have played well in all three facets of the game to this point and we need to have that continue.” See PREVIEW, page 7

LadyCats end net regular season with sweep of Jeffcats
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer DELPHOS — Jefferson’s volleyball crew was honoring six seniors playing their home finales Thursday against Kalida at Jefferson High School. Alas for the home Wildcats, Kalida’s visiting LadyCats proved to be rude guests as they downed the Jeffcats 25-19, 25-22, 25-21. Playing those home finales were Lindsay Deuel, Katie Goergens, Gabby Pimpas, Kamie Pulford, Rileigh Stockwell and Kenidi Ulm. “We were already worked up before we came into the gym tonight; it’s emotional for them and me. They have worked hard all these years,” Jefferson coach Joy DeVelvis explained. “They came out and played well as a group. We moved much better tonight as a team, which is a positive going into the tournament. We were much better defensively.” Neither team had much of a lead for the first half of the first set as it was 11-10, LadyCats (10-11), after Goergens (4 kills, 4 digs) put down a spike off the Kalida block. However, Kalida senior Madison Burgei (3 kills, 4 blocks), returning from injury, put down a kill and gave the serve to senior Lexi Decker (2 aces, 13 assists). Mixing in an ace, a kill and a stuff by sophomore Allison Recker (6 kills3 total blocks) and a pair of hitting errors, the visitors built a 17-10 lead. Later on, a 4-0 run put the visitors up 21-12 on a stuff by Recker. The Red and White tried to rally and did get within 24-19 on a hitting error, forcing Kalida coach Kristen Stechschulte to call timeout. However, Burgei put down a bomb on set point. “We had some good runs each set. That was the key for us,” Stechschulte explained. “We’ve had injuries to three starters and they are now all

back. It takes time to work them back into the lineup and get on the same page, which is one reason for inconsistency.” The other two returning from the shelf are junior Morgan Niese (10 kills, 4 blocks) and junior Caitlin Stechschulte. Kalida slowly built a 10-4 lead in the first set, keyed by another 4-0 run, forcing DeVelvis to call time. It didn’t do a lot of good as a 5-0 spurt — with freshman Carlee Miller (2 aces, 5 kills) serving four of the points — put the guests up 15-5 on a spike off the defense by senior Elizabeth Turnwald. Back came the hosts behind Goergens and Deuel (4 kills) as they battled within 23-22 on a kill on an overpass by junior Desteni Lear (3 kills, 4 digs). However, the Lady Wildcats could not dig up a hit by Turnwald and then a hitting error on set point put the visitors in command. See WILDCATS, page 7

Lady Green, Musketeers battle to scoreless draw
By BOB WEBER DHI Correspondent OTTOVILLE — Thursday night in front of a nice crowd at the Ottoville Sports Complex, the Ft. Jennings Lady Musketeers and Lady Green of Ottoville played their last regular season soccer game. The match was hard-fought defensively on both ends and the Lady Musketeers dominated on the offensive end; however, the game ended in a 0-0 tie. Thursday marked the final regular season game for 13 (7 Lady Green, 6 Lady Musketeers) playing the game they loved and gave their all during their high school years. Before the Big Green faithful acknowledged their seniors, the outgoing Lady Musketeers were recognized and given a flower by the Lady Green soccer team members. Seniors Cassie Horstman, Emily Grone, Nicole Ricker, Jamie Saum, Ashley Gable and Marissa Good were the six seniors Lady Musketeers’ Head Coach Rodney Wagner recognized. For the home squad, playing their last regular-season home game in front the Big Green faithful, seniors Stephanie Horstman, Haylee Koester, Monica Sarka, Megan Schnipke, Danielle Trenkamp, Amy Tumblin and Karin Wendeberg walked across the field one last time arm and arm with their parents. The first half saw the Lady Green have the first real scoring chance at the 37:07 mark when sophomore Carly Kortokrax broke loose and sent a shot on goal that was saved by Musketeer junior goalie Erin Osting. That would be the only real scoring threat the Lady Green would have for the half. On the other sideline, the Lady Musketeers controlled the ball for much of the first half with numerous shots from Gable, Saum and Grone on the Lady Green goal. Trenkamp, the Lady Green goalie, played very well in goal throughout the game and quite often tipped the ball in the air and was able to control or save the ball before it crossed the line. Also, the Lady Green defense played hard during the first 40 minutes, anchored by sophomore Alena Horstman clearing the ball out of danger many times. The second half was a continuation of the first for the Musketeers with time after time the visitors sending shot after shot at the goal. The Lady Musketeers challenged the Lady Green defense till the last second but the home squad was up to the challenge as time expired with the game ending in a 0-0 tie. The Lady Musketeers (8-4-4, 2-1-1 PCL) will next week be right back in Ottoville as they start their tournament run facing the Wildcats from Miller City at 5 p.m. Tuesday night. The Lady Green (5-10-1, 0-4 PCL) will also start sectional play at Ottoville where they will take on the Lady Titans of Ottawa-Glandorf in the second game Tuesday night. Saves- Ft. Jennings - Erin Osting (4); Ottoville Danielle Trenkamp (11).

Gordon takes pole at Charlotte Motor Speedway
By STEVE REED Associated Press CONCORD, N.C. — Jeff Gordon is feeling rejuvenated as the NASCAR Sprint Cup season winds down. Gordon carried over a strong performance in Kansas last weekend to Thursday night by winning the pole for the race Saturday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Gordon, who is fourth in the Chase standings, said it’s been a frustrating season but that he’s feeling better with each passing race. “I feel like we knocked it out of the park tonight,” Gordon said. Gordon turned a lap at 194.308 mph to edge Kevin Harvick for his ninth pole at Charlotte, tied for the second most in track history. Greg Biffle qualified third for the Saturday night race, Jimmie Johnson was fourth, and Kasey Kahne — who held the pole for most of the night — will start fifth on Saturday night. Dale Earnhardt Jr. celebrated his 39th birthday by qualifying sixth for his 500th Sprint Cup start. Ryan Newman was seventh, followed by Juan Pablo Montoya, Kyle Busch and Kurt Busch. Gordon was upbeat after the qualifying, saying things are finally starting to mesh for the No. 24 Chevrolet team. “The thing is it’s really hard to maintain your confidence in what you’re doing when you’re struggling,” Gordon said. “I felt like all year long we have been racing better than we have been qualifying, but that qualifying was a weakness for us and we needed to get better track position. It’s hard not to get down when things aren’t going well. … It’s hard to come in here all bubbly and having fun, because honestly it wasn’t fun.” The 42-year-old Gordon hasn’t won a race on the Sprint Cup series this year, but believes he’s going to need to win one to have a legitimate shot at winning is fifth Cup championship. Gordon enters the weekend 32 points behind leader Matt Kenseth with six races left. Kenseth qualified 20th. “This will be one of our worst qualifying efforts of the year so we have a lot of work to do,” Kenseth said. Kahne was hoping Thursday night would give his team momentum after what has been a disappointing showing so far in the Chase. He enters the weekend in 13th place, 83 points behind Kenseth. For a while it looked like his early lap would hold up.

Information Submitted Joseph earns all-MAC in cross country COLDWATER — St. John’s senior Megan Joseph earned first-Team AllMidwest Athletic Conference after finishing 11th in the league meet Thursday at Coldwater. “We ran very well tonight. Our goal going in was to get Megan a first-team spot; only the top 12 get all-league and we knew going in it would be close,” St. John’s coach Steve Hellman explained. “She had been close a couple of times in previous years, so with the 11th-place finish, she met one of her goals going into the season. Baylee Lindeman set a new PR of 27:02, so she is starting to get in shape after her injury. “For the boys, Curtis Pohlman 17:46 and Aaron Hellman 18:58 led the way with setting new PRs. To finish eighth as a team was great considering this was our first full team since 2008. “I am so happy for my two seniors, Aaron and Megan, to set PRs at their last league meet. They are the leaders in helping turn the program around and show my six freshmen how to race. This was a good starting point as we head to districts next Saturday in Ottawa.” ——Lady Pirates whitewash Jefferson BLUFFTON — Host Bluffton shut

Local Round Up
out Jefferson 6-0 in girls Northwest Conference soccer Thursday night at Steinmetz Field. Scoring goals for the Lady Pirates (7-6-3) were two from senior Jill Steinmetz, one each from freshman Sarah Theisen, junior Kirsten Thorgaard and freshman Katie Burkholder and an own goal. Theisen had two assists and Steinmetz, senior Molly Moser and freshman Brooke Koontz had one each. The Pirates owned the shots on-goal 15-4 and had two corner kicks. Lady Wildcat (6-8-2, 3-1-1) freshman Makaya Dunning had nine saves; freshman Jadyn Barhorst had four. Jefferson begins Division III sectional pay 7 p.m. Saturday at Elida. ——Musketeer boys sting Hornets FORT JENNINGS — Host Fort Jennings handed invading Cory-Rawson a 4-0 boys soccer loss Thursday. The Musketeers (8-7-1) scored three times in the first half: in the 11th minute on a Troy Ricker goal (assists from Spencer Dray and Alex Berelsman), in the 15th minute as Mark Metzger scored on a scramble after a corner kick) and in the 37th minute as Berelsman assisted Seth Ricker. In the sixth minute of the second half, Berelsman assisted Troy Ricker. Jennings won the shots on-goal 15-4 and the corner kicks 5-3.

Kyle Rossman saved six For the Hornets (4-10-2) and Alex Vetter three for the hosts. The Musketeer junior varsity beat Liberty-Benton 4-1 to improve to 7-22. ——— Celina sweeps Lady ’Dawgs ELIDA — In a battle of Lady Bulldogs, visiting Celina swept host Elida 25-14, 25-15, 25-13 in Western Buckeye League volleyball Thursday. Elida stat leaders: Kills - Torie McAdams - 6; Summer Grogg - 4 Assists - Erin Bowman - 6; Katie Hawk - 5 Digs - Erika Kiel - 15 Aces - Erika Kiel - 2; Torie McAdams - 2 Elida stands at 9-13 (3-6 WBL). Celina’s JV won 2-0 and their freshmen also won 2-0. —— Wildkittens shut out LadyCats BATH TOWNSHIP — Host Bath shut out Kalida 3-0 in girls soccer action Thursday. Alyssa Manley scored twice for the Wildkittens (10-3-2) and McKenzie Perry once. Bath had 10 shots on-goal to the LadyCats’ (12-1-2) six. Goalie saves for Kalida came from Sarah Verhoff (4) and Laine Laudick (3), while Audrey Brandon had six for Bath.

But then a series of drivers eclipsed his time, capped finally by Gordon, who had the last car on the track. “There were a lot of good cars at the end of the session and that kept leading up to things getting faster and faster,” Harvick said. Gordon called it “the most exciting qualifying pole ever.” Harvick said he would have been happy starting on the outside row had he not won from the pole last week at Kansas. “Obviously we wanted to be greedy and get that again tonight,” Harvick said. “But it’s been nice to see the speed. It seems like everybody is able to find a little more and dig deeper when it is Chase time.” Kyle Larson, making his Sprint Cup debut in Phoenix Racing’s No. 51 Chevrolet, qualified 21st.

Verlander sends Tigers past A’s in Game 5 gem
By JANIE McCAULEY Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif. — Justin Verlander pitched another Game 5 gem in Oakland while carrying a no-hit bid into the seventh inning and Miguel Cabrera homered to lead the Detroit Tigers past the Athletics 3-0 Thursday night and back into the AL championship series. Joaquin Benoit retired Seth Smith on a fly ball with two on in the ninth to close out the deciding game of their division series. The Tigers became the first team to reach the ALCS in three straight years since the New York Yankees from 1998-2001. Game 1 is Saturday in Boston. The Tigers went 4-3 against the Red Sox this year. Verlander gave up a clean, 2-out single to Yoenis Cespedes in the seventh to end his chance at the third no-hitter in postseason history. The hit hardly fazed him, however. Verlander made it a postseason-record 30 straight scoreless innings against one team. He struck out 10 in eight innings.

Powerful Tigers too much for Lady Blue Jays
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer DELPHOS — The Midwest Athletic Conference is a powerful volleyball league. Just ask St. John’s. The Lady Blue Jays saw it with their own eyes as the power-hitting Versailles crew gave them a 25-9, 25-5, 25-8 beatdown Thursday on Senior Night at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium. Three Lady Blue Jays played their last match at Arnzen Gym: Kaylie Youngpeter (9 digs), Brittney Claypool (9 digs) and Alicia Buettner (4 kills). “These are three great girls; they have worked hard and showed a lot of determination and dedication throughout the year,” Jays’ coach Carolyn Dammeyer noted. “We could have rolled over from the start against a team like this but we played great defense; we were scrappy and never quit. I am so proud of the girls for showing great character.” The Tigers (20-2, 8-1) had simply too much firepower for the Blue Jays (4-15, 0-9). “It was nice for us to get some other girls in there and get into good form for the tournament,” Versailles coach Karla Frilling explained. “We run some different sets, like a 3-option offense, and when we have the ball control we did tonight, we can run it well.” It started from the opening volley and never let up. Though the Blue Jays tried to slow down and dig up the attacks of Versailles, the Tigers were regularly putting them down. Set one culminated on a kill by Brett Bey. The Tigers built an early 5-2 lead on a bash by Amanda Winner (11 kills, 3 aces). After Alicia Buettner put down a kill of her own, a stuff from Christa Putthoff gave the serve to Kristin Langston (8 aces, 8 digs). After she put in three of those aces, Taylor Winner (9 kills) had three stuffs and Lauren Bruns five kills, including a pair of bombs, one of those bombs gave the visitors a 20-4 edge. A kill by Claypool broke the 15-point run but the Tigers easily put away the set on a hit out of bounds by the Blue and Gold.

Kelly, Greinke set for Game 1 of NLCS
By R.B. FALLSTROM Associated Press ST. LOUIS — Carpets were still drying out from a champagne bath and a few players looked bleary eyed after a workout at Busch Stadium. A day after advancing, there wasn’t much time to rest for the St. Louis Cardinals. “Obviously, it was a great celebration and a lot of fun,” reliever John Axford said Thursday. “The clubhouse guys, I don’t know if they even went home.” The Los Angeles Dodgers don’t have home-field advantage in the NL championship series, but they got a few extra days to savor early postseason success. Zack Greinke was getting ready to go in Game 5, then went on stand-by, and now he guards against feeling too good in the opener Friday night. “Once we won it, it was just kind of make the best adjustments possible,” Greinke said. “I mean, there’s not much you can really do.” No telling which side will benefit, the team on a roll or the team coming off a break. Joe Kelly, who flourished as a replacement starter with St. Louis and gets the call for Game 1, was elevated to the fifth starting spot and then waited almost two weeks before actually getting on the mound. “You could be laid off for eight days and come out and play absolutely the best baseball you’ve ever done,” Kelly said. “You could come out and play the next day and not have a good game. This is all about execution.” As a youth, Kelly was a budding skateboard star with a sponsor. Like other Cardinals youngsters, he’s seemed oblivious to the pressure. “It’s Game 1 of the NLCS, but me being me, I’m going to go out there and just pitch like it’s another game,” he said. The staff aces won’t go until later in the best-of-seven series, with the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw set for Game 2 and the Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright ready for Game 3. Rookie Michael Wacha, who has flirted with a no-hitter his last two starts, goes in Game 2 for St. Louis. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he’d probably announce the rest of the starting assignments on game day. The series matches a largely homegrown team seeking its second World Series appearance in three years against one that’s been among the biggest spenders trying to get there for the first time in a quartercentury. The Dodgers spent well over $200 million to put together their team. “I think the payroll gets thrown out there in general, and then it becomes an expectation,” Mattingly said. “You’ve got these highprofile guys, you’ve got big names, guys making big money, you’re supposed to win.” They won the NL West for the first time in four years, then eliminated the Braves in four games in the NLDS. Greinke is among a half-dozen Dodgers making $15 million or more and Mattingly said it’s like having a pair of aces. “So it’s nice to start a series with a guy of his caliber,” Mattingly said. “In this environment, it’s nice to have those two right on top.” St. Louis led the National League with 97 wins, including a major league-high 33 by rookie pitchers. The Cardinals’ payroll is at about $119 million outlay, a large chunk going to players like Chris Carpenter, Jason Motte and Rafael Furcal who didn’t make it to opening day and another, Jaime Garcia, who was sidelined for the year in mid-May. The Dodgers won three of four in St. Louis in August, notably limiting rookie Shelby Miller to just two pitches in one start after taking a liner by Carl Crawford off his elbow. This is the third straight NLCS appearance for the Cardinals, who’ll try to keep winning without their cleanup man. Allen Craig met with foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C., Thursday for a second opinion on a left mid-foot sprain that’s sidelined him since early September. General manager John Mozeliak said the team expected to learn about therapy options “if we’re going to try to get him ready for the next series.” Craig’s .454 average with runners in scoring position led the majors. “It’s a tough injury and one you can’t be aggressive with,” the GM said. Replacement starter Matt Adams’ two-run homer helped the Cardinals finish off the Pirates with a 6-1 victory in Game 5. Mozeliak said the Cardinals would likely not make any roster changes for a series matching their largely homegrown roster against the free-spending Dodgers. Mattingly isn’t optimistic that outfielder Andre Ethier, limited to three at-bats in the division series by a left ankle injury, will be ready for regular duty in the series after getting pushed in a workout Wednesday.

The third set was very much like its predecessor. A stuff by Blue Jay junior Bekah Fischer (3 kills) made it 4-3, Versailles, but an off-speed kill by Bruns gave the serve to Langston once more. Three kills by Bruns (15 kills) and three aces keyed a 10-0 run to put the visitors up 14-3. A hitting error broke that spurt but it was only a matter of time as the hard-hitting Tigers finished the sweep on a hitting mistake by the Jays. “Versailles is a fantastic volleyball team; they have so many weapons,” Dammeyer added. “I know they took Marion Local to five sets the first week of the season but what I saw tonight, I think they are the better team right now. We played a great match against a fantastic team; they are just that good.” Versailles also won the junior varsity match 25-6, 25-8. Jessica Geise led the hosts with 14 digs and five kills and Colleen Schulte had nine digs and 12 assists. St. John’s opens Division IV sectional action at Elida Thursday versus Perry at 7:30 p.m. Versailles plays in Division III action Thursday.

ST. JOHN’S VS. FORT RECOVERY The Blue Jays (2-4, 2-2 MAC) have been struggling to find a consistent level of play through their first six games. Head coach Todd Schulte sees a team in Fort Recovery going through much the same. “They will have three good plays in a row and then have three not-sogood ones. What they do is play hard every play and play with a physical edge,” Schulte said. “What we see is an offense that runs the spread and then — with the same personnel — before you know it, they are in a doubletight, 2-back look and run power. Our defense has to be on its toes as to what they are doing. “Defensively, they have two guys in particular that we are concerned about: defensive tackle Dues and defensive end Timmerman. They both are tough to block and create a lot of havoc.” The Jays, off a 28-14 loss to Marion Local, come in with an offensive average of 16.7 points and 227.2 yards behind Tyler Jettinghoff (100 rushes, 532 yards, 8 scores), Luke MacLennan (46 rushes, 258 yards, 2; 10 catches, 220 yards, 2), Nick Martz (67 totes, 244 yards, 1; 24-of-66 passing, 325 yards, 2 TDs, 6 picks), Evan Hays (5 catches, 50 yards), Ben Wrasman (11of-13 extra points, 14 total points; 24 punts, 35.4yard average) and linemen Spencer Ginter (8 pancake blocks) and Wes Buettner (3). On the defense are Cody Looser (41 solo tackles, 25 assists), Austin Heiing


Looser (33 and 17), Hays (24 and 14), MacLennan (29 and 8), Jordan Mohler (27 and 10) and Nate Schroeder (22 and 11). “Just like last week, we have to find playmakers, whether it’s one guy or a group of them, That cost us last week and this year,” he added. “We actually had chances to keep last week closer and you have to find a way to capitalize when those opportunities present themselves. What I find most disappointing is we are making many of the same mistakes in week six as we did in week one. “We know we are out of the league race but we still have a shot at the playoffs; in my mind, we have to win out to take care of business and play week 11.” Both games kick off at 7:30 p.m.

The LadyCats had the better of the proceedings in the third set, scooting to a 9-5 lead on an ace by junior Nicole Recker (9 assists). Back came the Wildcats, mainly as the LadyCats started to see both hitting and serving errors creep into their game, to take a 10-9 lead on a Deuel pounder. The lead went back and forth until 14-14 — on a Kalida player in the net; a kill by Allison Recker gave the LadyCats the lead for good. They slowly erected a 24-17 edge on a miscue but the Jeffcats were not ready to go home. A kill by Deuel

and her two aces around a spike by Goergens put the hosts within 24-21 and forced Stechschulte to call time. A hit off the block and defense by junior Alexis Vorst sealed the sweep. “We fell behind and had to play catchup every set. That’s difficult to do consistently,” DeVelvis added. “We seemed to show more of a sense of urgency and more intensity when we were battling back but we just couldn’t quite get over that hump.” Jefferson opens Division III tourney play Wednesday at Lincolnview against Parkway starting at 7:30 p.m. Kalida takes on Wayne Trace

Junior Kennedy Hoffman led the guests with eight digs. Kalida’s junior varsity (10-5) outlasted Jefferson (7-11) 25-10, 18-25, 25-22.

‘Almost anorexia’ requires intervention now
DEAR DOCTOR K: My teenage daughter is obsessed with her weight. She doesn’t eat enough, and although she’s thin, she believes she’s fat. Could she be anorexic? DEAR READER: Think about eating as a continuum. On one end, people eat in a balanced way and don’t worry much about their weight. On the other end, people severely restrict their food intake and think constantly about their weight. They are often diagnosed with anorexia. As with most illnesses, there is not a magic dividing line between having the illness and not. In fact, there’s a big gray zone where people don’t meet the criteria for the disease, yet they’re not normal, either. An example is “prediabetes.” Tens of millions of people in the United States have blood sugar levels that are not high enough to be called diabetes, but also aren’t normal. It’s important to recognize them, because such people have a higher risk for developing diabetes in the future. It’s the same with anorexia. People in the middle may meet some criteria for anorexia. They don’t have an officially recognized eating disorder, yet they don’t have a healthy relationship with food, either. Many of these people have what a Harvard Medical School colleague calls “almost anorexia.” It sounds as though your daughter may fit this description. My colleague, Dr. Jennifer Thomas, with Jenni Schaefer, has written an informative new book on this topic called “Almost Anorexic: Is My (Or My Loved One’s) Relationship With Food a Problem?” You can learn more about it at AskDoctorK. com. It’s common for teens to worry about their weight and appearance. But consider the following to judge if your daughter is heading into more dangerous territory: -Frequent weight changes. Drastic intentional weight loss or frequent weight changes -- regardless of actual weight -- are a red flag for almost anorexia. -- Frequent restriction. Someone with almost anorexia might follow rigid dietary rules, such as eating only at specific times or eating only a specific number of calories. Breaking these rules typically leads to extreme guilt. -- Infrequent compensatory behaviors. Your daughter may occasionally force herself to vomit or use laxatives inappropriately. Maybe she exercises excessively on occasion, working out until she has burned the exact number of calories she just

Ask Doctor K
consumed. -- Negative body image. People with anorexia often hate their bodies. Most of us feel physically inadequate once in a while. But if your daughter often feels fat or won’t go to the beach because she is afraid to wear a swimsuit in public, her body image might fall within the almost anorexic zone. If you suspect your daughter may have -- or almost have -- anorexia, speak to her doctor. Even if she doesn’t have it yet, it sounds as if she may be at increased risk for getting it. And now is the time to take steps to prevent it from developing. Eating disorders can cause serious medical problems, and in the most extreme cases, even death.

Stocks soar on views US default threat easing
NEW YORK (AP) — You can almost hear Wall Street exhaling. The Dow Jones industrial average soared more than 300 points Thursday after Republican leaders and President Barack Obama took what investors saw as steps toward ending a 10-day budget standoff that has threatened to leave the U.S. unable to pay its bills. Wall Street’s hopes for a deal drove the Dow to its biggest point rise this year and ended a three-week funk in stocks. They also injected some calm into the frazzled market for short-term government debt. Republican leaders said Thursday they would vote to extend the government’s borrowing authority for six weeks. A spokesman for Obama said the president would “likely” sign a bill to increase the nation’s ability to borrow money so it can continue paying its bills. “Congressmen and women are coming to terms with how calamitous it would be if the debt ceiling was not raised,” said Joseph Tanious, Global Market Strategist for J.P. Morgan Asset Management. “Cooler heads are prevailing.” The Dow jumped 323.09 points, or 2.2 percent, to close at 15,126.07, its high for the day.

Feds will let states pay to reopen national parks
WASHINGTON (AP) — Under pressure from governors, the Obama administration said Thursday it will allow some shuttered national parks to reopen — as long as states use their own money to pay for park operations. Governors in at least four states have asked for authority to reopen national parks within their borders because of the economic impacts caused by the park closures. All 401 national park units — including such icons as the Grand Canyon and Yosemite and Zion national parks — have been closed since Oct. 1 because of the partial government shutdown. More than 20,000 National Park Service employees have been furloughed, and lawmakers from both parties have complained that park closures have wreaked havoc on nearby communities that depend on tourism. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said the government will consider offers to use state money to resume park operations, but will not surrender control of national parks or monuments to the states. Jewell called on Congress to act swiftly to end the government shutdown so all parks can reopen. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert said his state would accept the federal offer to reopen Utah’s five national parks. Utah would have to use its own money to staff the parks, and it will cost $50,000 a day to operate just one of them, Zion National Park, said Herbert’s deputy chief of staff, Ally Isom. Interior Department spokesman Blake Androff said the government does not plan to reimburse states that pay to reopen parks. Costs could run into the millions of dollars, depending on how long the shutdown lasts and how many parks reopen. Congress could authorize reimbursements once the shutdown ends, although it was not clear whether that will happen. Governors of Arizona, South Dakota and Colorado have made similar requests to reopen some or all of their parks. A spokesman for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said the Republican governor is committed to finding a way to reopen the Grand Canyon, one of the state’s most important economic engines

As demand dwindles, US blood banks make changes
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Blood banks are declaring fewer critical shortages these days and in some cases cutting staff in response to dwindling demand for blood — the result of fewer elective surgeries being performed and medical advances that curb bleeding in the operating room. The nation’s blood-collection system has undergone a dramatic change from just a decade ago, when agencies that oversee the blood supply worried whether they could keep up with the needs of an aging population. Now blood banks are making fewer but more targeted appeals for donations and reducing the size of their operations. Blood centers shifted “from a collect-as-much-as-you-can mentality to a collect-to-need mentality,” said Dr. Darrell Triulzi, medical director for the Institute for Transfusion Medicine in Pittsburgh and a former president of AABB, formerly known as the American Association of Blood Banks. “They started collecting only what they needed. That’s new to the industry. We’re still learning how to do that well.” Job cuts have been a part of the process. The Indiana Blood Center announced in June that it would eliminate 45 positions in a restructuring that also involved reducing its mobile operations, closing a donor center and cutting other costs because demand from hospitals had fallen 24 percent from the previous year. The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks in Springfield, Mo., announced in March that it was cutting staff by nearly 18 percent. Blood centers in Florida, West Virginia and Connecticut have taken similar steps. The blood-collection system began changing dramatically with the Great Recession, when Americans who had lost their jobs and health insurance put off non-critical procedures. The need for blood is still falling even as the economy recovers. Demand dropped by 8.2 percent from 2008 to 2011 and continues to drop, according to a report by the AABB. Contributing to the decline are blood-management programs, which include collecting blood lost during an operation and returning it to the patient, maximizing hemoglobin levels to prevent anemia and using medications to reduce bleeding during surgery. Blood-management programs have been around for more than a decade, but have only started catching on in larger numbers in the past several years, Triulzi said. The AABB surveyed hospitals and blood centers about blood-management programs in 2011 and found nearly a third of hospitals surveyed had started such programs. Advances in surgical methods, including laparoscopic techniques that use small “keyhole” incisions, have also curbed the need for blood. Experts say that doesn’t mean there’s a blood glut, but there are fewer times when blood banks declare shortages and issue urgent pleas for donations, which were once commonplace. Instead, blood centers have altered their approach, holding fewer drives and often targeting people with specific blood types. Some are even offering gas cards, T-shirts or the chance to win tickets to NFL football games as incentives.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Families of fallen troops will be assured of receiving death benefits under legislation President Barack Obama signed Thursday amid a national firestorm after the Pentagon suspended the roughly $100,000 payments during the partial government shutdown. Obama signed the bill into law after it won final passage in the Senate earlier in the day. But his chief spokesman, Jay Carney, had said the measure was unnecessary because a military charity had stepped in to continue the payments. Carney also had declined to say whether Obama would sign the bill, which reinstates benefits for surviving family members, including funeral and burial expenses, and death gratuity payments. The Pentagon typically pays out $100,000 within three days of a service member’s death. It said 29 active-duty service members have died since Oct. 1, when parts of the government shut down in a dispute between the White House and Congress over the president’s health care law. The Pentagon had said the lapse in funding meant it had no authority to continue the payments, but that explanation that did not sit well with members of Congress in either party. The Pentagon said a law allowing members of the military to be paid during the shutdown did not cover the death benefit payments. Congress passed and Obama signed that measure into law before the shutdown began, and lawmakers insisted the benefits shouldn’t have been affected.

28 years in prison for corrupt ex-Detroit mayor
DETROIT (AP) — A former Detroit mayor was sent to federal prison for nearly three decades Thursday, after offering little remorse for the widespread corruption under his watch but acknowledging he let down the troubled city during a critical period before it landed in bankruptcy. Prosecutors argued that Kwame Kilpatrick’s “corrupt administration exacerbated the crisis” that Detroit now finds itself in. A judge agreed with the government’s recommendation that 28 years in prison was appropriate for rigging contracts, taking bribes and putting his own price on public business. It is one of the toughest penalties doled out for public corruption in recent U.S. history and seals a dramatic fall for Kilpatrick, who was elected mayor in 2001 at age 31 and is the son of a former senior member of Congress. While Detroit’s finances were eroding, he was getting bags of cash from city contractors, kickbacks hidden in the bra of his political fundraiser and private cross-country travel from businessmen, according to trial evidence. Kilpatrick, 43, said he was sorry if he let down his hometown but denied ever stealing from the citizens of Detroit. “I’m ready to go so the city can move on,” Kilpatrick said, speaking softly with a few pages of notes before U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds ordered the sentence. “The people here are suffering, they’re hurting. A great deal of that hurt I accept responsibility for,” he said. In March, he was convicted of racketeering conspiracy, fraud, extortion and tax crimes. The government called it the “Kilpatrick enterprise,” a yearslong scheme to shake down contractors and reward allies. He was doomed by his own text messages, which revealed efforts to fix deals for a pal, Bobby Ferguson, an excavator. Prosecutors said $73 million of Ferguson’s $127 million in revenue from city work came through extortion. The government alleged that he in turn shared cash with Kilpatrick. Agents who pored over bank accounts and credit cards said Kilpatrick spent $840,000 beyond his salary during his time as mayor, from 2002 to fall 2008. Defense attorneys tried to portray the money as generous gifts from political supporters who opened their wallets

“It’s not ideal, but if there’s something we can do to help reopen it, Gov. Brewer has been committed to trying to find that way,” said spokesman Andrew Wilder. Brewer and state legislative leaders have said they would make state funding available, but “the state cannot pay the federal government’s bills indefinitely,” Wilder said. Businesses outside the Grand Canyon have pledged $400,000. October is a peak month for tourism in Arizona and other parts of the West. In South Dakota, a spokesman said Gov. Dennis Daugaard is considering the government’s offer, but wants to see how much it would cost. Daugaard, a Republican, “appreciates the federal government’s willingness to evaluate other options,” said Dusty Johnson, Daugaard’s chief of staff. “When we get the numbers, he’ll consider it more fully.” Herbert, also a Republican, said in a letter Tuesday to President Barack Obama that the shutdown of national parks has been “devastating” to individuals and businesses that rely on park operations for their livelihood. Utah is home to five national parks, including Zion, Bryce and Arches, which attract visitors from around the world. “The current federally mandated closure is decimating the bottom line of bed-and-breakfast business owners and operators in Torrey (Utah), outfitters at Bryce Canyon City and restaurant owners in Moab,” Herbert wrote. He estimated the economic impact of the federal government shutdown on Utah at about $100 million. Androff said the Interior Department will consider agreements with governors who “indicate an interest and ability to fully fund National Park Service personnel to re-open national parks in their states.” Decisions about which parks to reopen and for how long have not been made, Androff said. All 401 park service units nationwide are eligible for state donations, Androff said. Figures compiled by a coalition of retired park service workers indicate that some 700,000 people a day would have been visiting the parks and that the surrounding areas are losing $76 million in visitor spending per day.

States joining forces to scrub voter rolls Corn harvest above
SEATTLE (AP) — More than half of states are now working in broad alliances to scrub voter rolls of millions of questionable registrations, identifying people registered in multiple states and tens of thousands of dead voters who linger on election lists. Poll managers are looking for more states to get involved and say the efforts are necessary because outdated voter registration systems are unable to keep up with a society where people frequently move from one state to another. While many of the registration problems are innocent, some election leaders fear the current disorder within the system is inviting trouble. “It creates an environment where there could be more problems,” said Scott Gessler, the Republican secretary of state in Colorado. “It’s a precursor to potential fraud, there’s no doubt about it.” Half of all states have now joined a consortium anchored by the state of Kansas, compiling their voter registration lists at the end of every year to assess for duplicates. That program has grown rapidly since beginning in 2005 in an agreement between four Midwestern states. Meanwhile, seven states are coordinating on another project that makes those assessments more frequently with advanced algorithms — while also checking for deceased voters. The efforts are already finding massive numbers of outdated or problematic registrations. This year, the Kansas project identified some 5 million records that were questionable in 22 states and also identified some people who voted in multiple states, according to officials. The newer project — known as the Electronic Registration Information Center — identified hundreds of thousands of other registrations that need updating, including 23,000 people who were dead.

for birthdays or holidays. “It is difficult to quantify the total cost of the devastating corruption instigated by Kilpatrick. … But one thing was certain: It was the citizens of Detroit who suffered when they turned over their hard-earned tax dollars but failed to receive the best services,” the judge said. Kilpatrick was convicted in March, just days before Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder sent an emergency manager to Detroit to take control of city operations. The city filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy in July, overloaded with at least $18 billion in long-term debt. Edmunds said Kilpatrick can’t be blamed for the bankruptcy — he’s been out of office for five years — but “corruption has its own cost.”
