Jennings 8th-grade science classes analyzing radish crop

Above left: Emily Fruend (kneeling, left) and Jeff Hoersten harvest radishes, brushing off as much dirt as possible before putting them in a bucket to carry indoors to take the mass. Above right: Faith Neidert and Vanessa Wallenhorst measure the mass of their radishes. (Photo submitted) Information Submitted Since the first week of school in August, the Fort Jennings eighthgrade science classes have been using the outdoor learning lab at the school to grow radishes. This project has been an example of types of science fair projects that each of the 7-9th grade students can do for the local, county and district Science Fairs. The question asked by the classes is “Which fertilizer will grow the radishes best?” Students took each garden bed and divided it into three sections that were three feet by three feet. They were assigned one of the five variables or the control group with no fertilizer added. The fertilizers were either compost, fresh cow manure, bagged cow manure, lawn fertilizer or Miracle Grow brand dissolvable fertilizer. Each was worked into the soil and then five rows of radishes were planted with rows eight inches apart and seeds placed three inches apart in the row. The radishes were the small, red type. See RADISHES, page 11

Hospital offers FreshStart program
Information submitted Van Wert County Hospital will host FreshStart, an American Cancer Society program designed to help participants stop smoking by providing them with all of the essential information and strategies needed to direct their own efforts at stopping. The program begins Tuesday with sessions held from 5:30-6:45 p.m. for four weeks, ending Nov. 26. FreshStart focuses on an active pragmatic approach to quitting smoking through active participation and group support. Participants are encouraged to apply what they learn in FreshStart to other aspects of their lives. According to an American Cancer Society report, smokers who quit can expect to live up to 10 years longer than those who continue to smoke. Quitting is hard but smokers can increase their chances of success with help. Research shows that much of the risk of premature death from smoking could be prevented by quitting. Smokers who quit, regardless of age, live longer than people who continue to smoke. Smokers who quit reduce their risk of lung cancer – 10 years after quitting, the lung cancer death rate is about half that of a continuing smoker’s. Quitting also lowers the risk for other major diseases, including heart disease and stroke. See FRESHSTART, page 11

Associated Press Today is Wednesday, Oct. 30, the 303rd day of 2013. There are 62 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 30, 1938, the radio play “The War of the Worlds,” starring Orson Welles, aired on CBS. (The live drama, which employed fake breaking news reports, panicked some listeners who thought the portrayal of a Martian invasion was real.) On this date: In 1735, the second president of the United States, John Adams, was born in Braintree, Mass. In 1885, poet Ezra Pound was born in Hailey, Idaho. In 1893, the U.S. Senate gave final congressional approval to repealing the Sherman Silver Purchase Act of 1890. In 1912, Vice President James S. Sherman, running for a second term of office with President William Howard Taft, died six days before Election Day. (Sherman was replaced with Nicholas Murray Butler, but Taft, the Republican candidate, ended up losing in an Electoral College landslide to Democrat Woodrow Wilson.) In 1921, the silent film classic “The Sheik,” starring Rudolph Valentino, premiered in Los Angeles. In 1944, the Martha Graham ballet “Appalachian Spring,” with music by Aaron Copland, premiered at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., with Graham in a leading role. In 1945, the U.S. government announced the end of shoe rationing, effective at midnight. In 1961, the Soviet Union tested a hydrogen bomb, the “Tsar Bomba,” with a force estimated at about 50 megatons. The Soviet Party Congress unanimously approved a resolution ordering the removal of Josef Stalin’s body from Lenin’s tomb. In 1972, 45 people were killed when an Illinois Central Gulf commuter train was struck from behind by another train in Chicago’s South Side. In 1974, Muhammad Ali knocked out George Foreman in the eighth round of a 15-round bout in Kinshasa, Zaire, known as the “Rumble in the Jungle” to regain his world heavyweight title. In 1979, President Jimmy Carter announced his choice of federal appeals judge Shirley Hufstedler to head the newly created Department of Education. In 1985, schoolteacher-astronaut Christa McAuliffe witnessed the launch of the space shuttle Challenger, the same craft that would carry her and six other crew members to their deaths in Jan. 1986. Ten years ago: The House approved an $87.5 billion package for Iraq and Afghanistan. Four construction workers were killed when an Atlantic City casino parking garage collapsed. Five years ago: A federal jury in Miami convicted the son of former Liberian President Charles Taylor in the first case brought under a 1994 U.S. law allowing prosecution for torture and atrocities committed overseas. (Charles McArthur Emmanuel was later sentenced to 97 years in prison.) One year ago: New York’s subways remained shut down, and much of Manhattan was still without power, in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. Rescuers and staff at a New York City hospital were hailed as heroes for working through the night to evacuate nearly 300 patients, floor-by-floor, after the hospital lost generator power at the height of the storm. Entering the final week of a hard-fought battle for the White House, President Barack Obama stayed off the campaign trail, while Republican Mitt Romney spoke of the needs of storm survivors rather than bashing his rival.

One Year Ago Smart pitching. Clutch hitting. Sharp fielding. Plus an MVP Panda. All the right elements for a sweet World Series sweep for the San Francisco Giants. Nearly knocked out in the playoffs time and time again and finally pressed by the Detroit Tigers in Game 4, Pablo Sandoval and the Giants clinched their second title in three seasons Sunday night. 25 Years Ago – 1988 Dr. Tom Morris has donated the program “Mentors – The Power of Example” to Delphos schools to help young people say no to drugs and alcohol. The “Mentors” program includes a film featuring sports and entertainment stars who openly and honestly discuss how they had the same pressures and problems when they were growing up and how they dealt with them without turning to drugs and/or alcohol. The streak, 49 consecutive regular-season games won in a row by the Jefferson Wildcats, is over. The Paulding Panthers won a game by the score of 13-0 back in 1983. Five years later on a chilly Friday night, the Panthers did it again. This time is was 17-0. Leading rusher for Jefferson was Rick Dienstberger with 38 yards on 10 carries. Kim M. Hiett, daughter of Tom and Janet Hiett of Spencerville and a senior at Findlay College, is serving a field placement experience in social work with the Betty Jane Memorial Rehabilitation Center, Tiffin. She is a 1985 graduate of St. John’s High School.

50 Years Ago – 1963 The “Little Hoover Commission” today recommended abandonment of 28 miles of Miami and Erie Canal land between St. Marys and Delphos, according to United Press International, and local reaction to the proposal was sharply critical of the recommendation. Two Delphos industries, Delphos Bending Company and Delphos Soya Products Company, make use of the canal. Eight members of the Mary Martha Bible Class of the Christian Union Church and two guests, Gladys Sellers and Rose Garber, were present at a meeting held Tuesday evening in the home of Cora Weaver, Suthoff Street. Dorothy Miller, president, presided. The meeting was opened with a song, followed by a prayer offered by Martha Stockton. After a business session, Emma Gould gave the closing prayer and a luncheon was served. The women’s auxiliary to the Jacob P. Smith Post, No. 3740 Veterans of Foreign Wars at Ottoville, held a business session and social party this week in the post club rooms. Birthday gifts were presented to Veronica Fischbach and Ethel Perrin and the attendance prize went to Henrietta King. Following the meeting, cards were played with prizes going to Salome Bendele, Hilda Pittner, Louise Miller and Madonna Reinemeyer. 75 Years Ago – 1938 Coach Dick Trame is making good progress in rounding the St. John’s High School basketball team into shape and the prospects are good for a winning team. Ten players have been selected for the first team. These are: Howard Ditto, Arthur Grothouse, Richard Klausing, Leroy Huysman, Paul Vonderembse, Robert Wiechart, William Rekart, Ed. Clark, James Clark and Harold Lisk. Mrs. Ralph Mericle, East Fifth Street, corresponding secretary of the Lima district, and Mrs. W. B. Evenbeck, Spencerville, Lima treasurer, were in attendance at the Ohio Conference meeting of the Woman’s Home Missionary Society of the Methodist Church held in Toledo Oct. 27-28. Mrs. George F. Snyder, Grover Hill, and Mrs. Ed. Recker, Delphos, accompanied them to Toledo to visit with friends. The passing attack of the Elida High School gridders proved too much for the Delphos Jefferson aggregation Friday afternoon at Elida and the Red and White went down to defeat by a score of 19 to 6. Jefferson played without the service of Don Foster, captain and triple threat man, and Gerdeman substituted for him in the backfield.

Sides debate court timing in state Medicaid dispute
COLUMBUS (AP) — Attorneys for the state said Tuesday there’s no need for the Ohio Supreme Court to rush its consideration of a lawsuit over a legislative panel’s authority to approve Medicaid expansion, but they are not opposed to a “reasonably expedited” timeline. Two anti-abortion groups and six Republican lawmakers are suing Ohio’s Department of Medicaid and state Controlling Board after the legislative panel cleared the way for Gov. John Kasich’s administration to spend $2.56 billion in federal dollars to cover more thousands more people in the Medicaid health program. The sides are debating whether the case should move expeditiously. In a court filing Tuesday, state Solicitor Eric Murphy said the plaintiffs don’t properly justify their request to speed up the case in manner that’s similar to election cases. Instead, Murphy said, the plaintiffs offer “only rhetoric” in support of an expedited case. The plaintiffs’ lawyer, Maurice Thompson, argued in a filing last week that such speed is warranted because expanded Medicaid coverage takes effect on Jan. 1. Without a ruling by then, Thompson wrote, “hundreds of thousands of Ohioans may reasonably rely upon, and be misled as to, their eligibility for Medicaid.” He wrote the state would be bound to offer coverage that would ultimately be unfunded. Murphy said the expanded coverage would only be “unfunded” if the plaintiffs prevail. Plus, he wrote, the state Medicaid director could always opt out of providing extended coverage should the viability of the Medicaid program become a problem.

Pope taps Ohio bishop to lead Hartford archdiocese
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — An Ohio bishop who is helping to shape changes in the oversight of U.S. nuns will lead 700,000 Catholics as Hartford’s new archbishop, Pope Francis announced Tuesday. Bishop Leonard Paul Blair, 64, who has led the Catholic Diocese of Toledo since 2003, will be installed as Hartford’s fifth archbishop on Dec. 16. He will succeed the Most Rev. Henry J. Mansell, 76, who is retiring after serving as Hartford archbishop since 2003. “I look forward to the blessings of a new family of faith,” Blair said at a news conference with Mansell and other church officials Tuesday. Blair is one of the three bishops appointed by the Vatican last year to oversee an overhaul of the largest umbrella group for U.S. nuns, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. A review by the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith concluded the sisters took positions that undermined Catholic teaching on the priesthood and homosexuality while promoting “radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.” The sisters vehemently rejected the findings, prompting an outpouring of popular support for the nuns that reached all the way to Congress. Blair on Tuesday defended the Toledo Diocese’s handling of complaints about sexual abuse by clergy, saying he and his predecessor removed priests from public ministry and the diocese’s responses have been appropriate. Nearly four dozen clerics in the Toledo Diocese faced allegations of sexually abusing minors for the period of 1950 to 2012, according to the diocese. Thirty-seven were priests and deacons of the Toledo Diocese, while nine others were not under the diocese’s jurisdiction. The 37 in the diocese’s jurisdiction include 11 who were removed from public ministry and 15 who are now dead, including two who were disciplined, according to the diocese. An abuse victims’ group released a statement Tuesday criticizing Blair and the Toledo Diocese’s handling of sex abuse cases. “We are disappointed that, once again, Pope Francis has promoted a prelate who has failed to show real courage and compassion and refused to adequately protect the vulnerable and heal the wounded,” Barbara Blaine, president of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, said in the statement.

With cold weather fast approaching, Northwestern Ohio Community Action Commission will once again assist households to establish or maintain their heating source with the Winter Crisis Program and Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP). The Winter Crisis program is designed to assist households, who find themselves in an emergency situation to get service reconnected, avoid a disconnection, or receive bulk fuel (propane, fuel oil, etc.) in order to provide heat to their home. The Winter Crisis Program is available from Nov. 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014. Any household that is at or below 175 percent of the Federal Poverty guideline may apply for the program. Applicants must provide the past 90 day income for all members of the household, social security numbers, birth dates, electric bill, gas bill and proof of disability if applicable. HEAP is a federally funded program designed to help eligible low-income Ohioans meet the high costs of home heating. This program can only be accessed one time per season and the amount of the benefit depends on the size of the household, household income and what type of fuel is used. In most cases, the one-time benefit will be a credit applied directly to an energy bill. Income eligible household must be at or below 175 percent of the Federal Poverty guideline. No emergency need is required for this program. To learn more or to apply for these programs, families may contact Northwestern Ohio Community Action Commission to schedule an appointment.

PUTNAM COUNTY — On Oct. 15, Putnam County held its fourth annual Leadership Day at Miller City High School. Students from seven of the Putnam County high schools each sent up to 15 kids for the full day of workshops, team building activities, guest roundtables and serviceproject planning. Coordinators of the project were Mike Klear from the Educational Service Center, Jeff Jostpille from Fort Jennings High School, Beth Tobe from Pathways and Jason Hedrick from OSU Extension. The day began with energizers and games for the 104 students attending. A representative from OSU-Lima then presented a short talk on the value of volunteerism and service for those looking to go on to college and how important those kinds of hours are to students at the

next level. Then a series of team building activities took place in small groups. These groups were run by students from the Fort Jennings Student Council and Jostpille. After lunch, seven different groups formed roundtables for the students to attend and included community representatives from varies service organizations — Hedrick representing 4H and Car Teens and students from Miller City and Fort Jennings who spoke on their service

projects in their schools as well as others. Students attended four of the different roundtables. To close the day, each school got together with their delegates for the day and was given an opportunity to plan a service project back in their school or community. Before the end of the day, each school presented their proposal to the entire group. Their advisers were instrumental in helping this planning.

While you are sleeping
Have you ever wished you could catch yourself falling asleep? If you’ve ever tried it, you know it doesn’t work. Scientists who study sleep have to watch other people fall asleep in laboratories. Because of their research,we know there are several stages of sleep. A person passes from drowsiness into stage 1 sleep as his muscles relax and his heart rate slows. This light phase of sleep lasts only a few minutes before merging into stage 2, a deeper sleep in which vague thoughts and dreams may occur. As the person moves into stage 3, an even deeper sleep, he becomes very relaxed, his heart rate slows even more, and his blood pressure drops. Stage 4 is the deepest sleep, in which the person is at his most relaxed and is very hard to awaken. Dreams occur during REM sleep, a phase of light sleep that follows stage 4. REM sleep is named for the rapid eye movements that take place during this stage. (Scientists have theorized that these

movements occur because the sleeper is watching events in his dreams. Blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing may fluctuate a great deal during REM sleep. A person will pass through these stages several times in a night. Each time the cycle occurs, the REM stage gets a little longer and the deep sleep a little less deep.

OHSAA releases weekly Home at last: Red Sox hope to win title at Fenway Van Ness Streets was in 1975, the night homers, six RBIs, four walks and a sacAssociated Press Football Computer Ratings Fisk sent Pat Darcy’s second pitch of the rifice fly, with one-third of Boston’s hits.
Information Submitted COLUMBUS – The Ohio High School Athletic Association released its weekly football computer ratings Tuesday. The weekly computer ratings are released every Tuesday afternoon beginning after the fourth week of the season, leading up to the final report this Sunday morning. Beginning this season, there are seven football divisions. The largest 72 schools are in Division I, which is divided into two regions. The top 16 teams in both Division I regions will qualify for the playoffs. The top 20 schools in both Division I regions are shown below. There are approximately 108 schools each in Divisions II through VII, which are each divided into four regions. The top eight teams in each region will qualify for the playoffs. The top 12 are shown below. Ratings are listed by division and region with record and average points. Log on to the football page at OHSAA.org for an explanation of how the ratings are calculated. The complete report showing all teams in every region is linked below in PDF format. BOSTON — Generations of New Englanders are preparing. Practically no one alive can remember seeing such an event unfold: The Boston Red Sox could win a World Series title on the celebrated green grass at Fenway Park. Ted Williams never did it. Not Carl Yastrzemski. Not Carlton Fisk. Not even Pedro Martinez and Curt Schilling, who ended The Curse nearly a decade ago but did it on the road. When the Red Sox last won a World Series at home, Babe Ruth, Carl Mays and Harry Hooper were the stars in September 1918, a season cut short by World War I. Ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2, the Red Sox have two chances to reward their faithful. “It would be awesome,” said John Lackey, who starts Game 6 tonight against Cardinals rookie Michael Wacha. Fenway was just a kid the last time the Red Sox won a title at home, a modern 6-year-old ballpark. A crowd of 15,238 watched the Red Sox defeat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 to win the Series in six games. “It was a ball game that nobody who was present will forget. It left too many lasting impressions,” Edward F. Martin wrote the following day in the Boston Globe. That was so long ago that Woodrow Wilson was president of the United States, television hadn’t been invented and the designated hitter didn’t exist. There were 16 major league teams — none west of St. Louis — all games were played in the daytime and the NFL was 23 months from formation. Now, Fenway Park is a centurion, the oldest home in the majors and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The last time a World Series Game 6 was played between Lansdowne and 12th inning high down the left-field line and waved his arms three times, urging the ball fair, before it clanked off the yellow foul pole atop the Green Monster. “I was just wishing and hoping,” Fisk recalled in 2005. “Maybe by doing it, you know, you ask something of somebody with a higher power. I like to think that if I didn’t wave, it would have gone foul.” Boston needed that 7-6 win to force a seventh game against Cincinnati and the Red Sox went on to lose the following night. Now, they are one win from setting off a Boston Glee Party. “With no disrespect to history or to Carlton, you know, it’s an iconic video and a highlight that is shown repeatedly, and one of the more memorable swings that probably has taken place in this ballpark,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said Tuesday, “but hopefully there’s somebody tomorrow night that can wave their arms just the same.” Boston swept the Series in 2004 and ‘07, starting at home and winning titles at St. Louis and Colorado. Given the length of time since the last championship clincher at Fenway, there is a seemingly insatiable demand for the just over 38,000 tickets. As of Tuesday evening, the cheapest of 1,600 or so ducats for sale on Stubhub.com was for standing room on the right-field roof deck for $983.75. A dugout box seat was available for $10,894.20. “I don’t know what happened in 1918 but tomorrow we’re going to try and make it happen, make people proud and happy in the city of Boston and New England,” David Ortiz said. “I guarantee it’s going to be wild.” Ortiz’s performance in the World Series has been better than Ruthian. He’s batting .733 (11-for-15) with two

Dalton on best 3-game span in Bengals’ history
By JOE KAY Associated Press CINCINNATI — Andy Dalton has heard all the talk: He can’t win a big game, his arm isn’t strong enough to complete the long pass, he’ll never be more than a caretaker quarterback. His last three games have changed the conversation. The third-year quarterback is on the best 3-game stretch in Bengals’ history. He’s thrown 11 touchdown passes — no other Bengals quarterback has done that — while hitting every type of throw. For the first time, he’s looking very comfortable in a West Coast offense that the Bengals thought he would grow into someday. “I don’t think there’s really anything that’s changed in me,” Dalton said. “I feel like I’m playing with a lot of confidence and our guys are doing the same thing. That’s been big for us. “We know what we’re doing out there and they’re in the right spots and they’re making plays. That’s kind of what it comes down to.” Cincinnati (6-2) is in control of the AFC North in large part because its quarterback has grown up a lot this sea- done that. He threw 47 son. He’s thrown for 300 touchdown passes, trailing yards in three straight games, only Dan Marino and Peyton matching the best such streak Manning for most in their in club history, according to first two seasons.

“That’s why we call him ‘Cooperstown’,” Game 5 star David Ross said, “because he does Hall-ofFame stuff.” While the Red Sox went through a light workout at Fenway Park on a cool autumn afternoon, the Cardinals tried to maintain their cool as they got stuck in St. Louis, joined by their families on a charter flight delayed several hours by mechanical difficulties. “Fortunately we have plenty of food, snacks for the kids, lots of entertainment with on-board movies and everybody travels with all their high-tech stuff,” manager Mike Matheny said. “Most of these kids are pretty happy that they’re not in school right now and it’s a great way to spend a day.” The plane took off about 9:10 p.m. EDT after a delay that appeared to last around 6 hours. Farrell made a bit of news, saying Ross will get his fourth Series start behind the plate in place of slumping Jarrod Saltalamacchia. “David has given us a spark offensively out of the position,” the manager explained. Shane Victorino is expected to return to right field after missing two games due to a bad back and Game 4 star Jonny Gomes will start in left over Daniel Nava. With the shift back to the American League ballpark, Mike Napoli returns to first base and Ortiz to designated hitter. Playing with a foot injury, Allen Craig will be the DH for St. Louis. Trying for their second title in three seasons, the Cardinals have high confidence in Wacha, a 22-year-old rookie who has won all four of his postseason starts, allowing three earned runs in 27 innings. “I imagine it’s going to be crazy but I’m not going to pay any attention to it,” Wacha said.

the deep balls,” safety Chris Crocker said. That’s been one of Dalton’s biggest shortcomings. During a 19-13 playoff loss at Houston last season, Dalton overthrew an open Green in the end zone in the closing minutes. Dalton spent a lot of time in the offseason working on his throwing motion to get more accuracy on the long passes. When the Jets came out in man-to-man coverage, the Bengals threw it deep and Dalton connected. Green alone had two catches for more than 50 yards. “Yeah, that was big,” Dalton added. “It’s something that’s been conscious, that I’ve worked on. To hit those was definitely gratifying. To know that we’ve done it in practice, now it’s time to do it in some of these games.” One of the most encouraging signs in the past three weeks is the way Dalton has used his other receivers. In his first two years, he’d lock on Green, who was by far his best option. Now, he has more choices and he’s using all of them. For instance, Jones has caught six of his 11 touchdown passes in the last three games.

Crouching world championship, hidden Tiger
By DOUG FERGUSON Associated Press SHANGHAI — Three years ago at Sheshan International, hundreds of fans wanting an autograph stood outside the clubhouse where Tiger Woods was signing his scorecard at the HSBC Champions. They excitedly began chanting in Chinese, “We want Tiger! We want Tiger!” Their hopes faded and the chanting stopped when they realized he had left, then a lone voice pierced the late afternoon air with a wistful plea in broken English. “Tiger, where are you?” That question resonates even louder this year. The HSBC Champions embarks on a new era as a World Golf Championship that finally is treated the same as the other three — an official PGA Tour event. But there’s one big difference. Woods is a no-show. He has been a huge supporter — and financial benefactor — of the WGCs since they began in 1999 by playing in 41 out of 44 events. The three he missed were the Match Play in Australia when it was held just after the holidays in 2001 and two in early 2010 when Woods was recovering from the scandal in his personal life. That he is not playing in Shanghai after a year that featured five wins and two injuries is not the issue. Eight other top players are not playing, either. The golf season never ends. Players can and should take breaks when it best suits their schedules. Adam Scott also is missing, though he faces a month of celebration in Australia, his first time home since winning the Masters. What makes Woods’ absence so unsettling to tournament organizers is that he’s already in China. He was in Hainan Island on Monday for an exhibition match (and a reported $2 million fee) against Rory McIlroy. He has at least one more outing, maybe more, scheduled this week in Asia. Woods and McIlroy played in China last year and both skipped the HSBC at Mission Hills. Two years ago, Woods was in Australia for outings during the HSBC, regarded as “Asia’s major.” “I do think that’s something, from the tour’s point of view, that does need to be looked at,” Giles Morgan, global head of sponsorship and events for HSBC, said Tuesday. “I’m not here to knock Tiger at all, because I feel that he’s been absolutely instrumental in the growth. But we’ve reached a point where it’s not about individuals. It’s about growing the game of golf globally. “I really hope that Tiger will want to come back in following years. China is a vast country, so him playing a

meaningless match yesterday doesn’t really affect us. But yeah, we’re disappointed.” Morgan said he was told a few months ago by Woods’ agent that this was not going to work with his schedule. After a week of corporate work, Woods is playing (for another big appearance fee) in the Turkish Open, a European Tour event. Like other overseas events, HSBC once paid to get the best players. But now that it’s a full-fledged WGC, big appearance fees have been replaced by an $8.5 million purse. “We have an opportunity to be a genuine top 10 event in the world,” Morgan explained. “That requires a massive investment, which we’re pleased to do. And that means we want to be an authentic sponsor in the world of golf.” Morgan looked out across the range at Sheshan International at one of his strongest fields ever — 40 of the top 50 in the world, a group that includes McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, U.S. Open champion Justin Rose and PGA champion Jason Dufner. There are nearly two dozen Americans in the field. He believes it will get even stronger as more players realize the economic potential of playing in China. See GOLF, page 7

Grant gets support, consolation from outsiders
By RUSTY MILLER Associated Press COLUMBUS — What’s brewing with the 2013 Ohio State Buckeyes … BUCKEYES BUZZ: There have been reports around the country of people taking to social media after games to criticize or even threaten college athletes. During his years at Ohio State, 2-time basketball AllAmerican Jared Sullinger continually battled those on Twitter who questioned his heart or talent. LB Curtis Grant has a much different experience. His father, Curtis Raynard Grant, 54, of Glen Allen, Va., died a little over two weeks ago. The junior explained this week that it has not been easy grieving the loss of his father but that it’s been reassuring how many people have reached out to him to offer their condolences or help. “It’s a lot harder for me on Saturdays because I’m not really doing that much,” he said carefully. “Throughout the week I’m pretty good but then once it comes to Saturdays, it’s a little different.” He said he was stunned by the reaction of Ohio State fans. “A lot of fans Instagrammed me and (sent messages on) Twitter, showed me a lot of love and support and I really appreciated that,” he recalled. “I even got cards from mailmen and people I never even heard of before. I was thankful to even be blessed with that.” He said that it’s a reminder of who he’s playing for. “To know that you have that family support and fan support and team support, it’s a great thing to have,” he added. Grant sustained a neck injury during last week’s 63-14 win over Penn State but announced he was fine and is expecting to be 100 percent for Saturday’s noon start at Purdue. LOTS OF BETTERS: To a question about QB Braxton Miller’s improved passing-completion percentage, coach Urban Meyer replied, “Fundamentally, he’s a much better player than he was a year ago and (has improved his) knowledge of the offense. Those two things. I see it every day.” Meyer went on to say that changing the playbook doesn’t help a QB improve but rather mastering the plays at hand. “Now he’s in the same offense, with the same coach, with the same system for two years. You should be better,” Meyer

Biffle sorry for not talking to Johnson in private
By JENNA FRYER Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. — If Greg Biffle could go back to Sunday, when he grabbed Jimmie Johnson by the collar and spun him around to confront him, he’d probably reach for the 5-time champion’s arm. And he would maybe ask for a private conversation rather than interrupting Johnson during postrace interviews. For the way it actually transpired, Biffle said, he plans to apologize to Johnson. But that’s where it ends. Biffle remained adamant that Johnson rammed into the back of his car at Martinsville Speedway, causing heavy damage to Biffle’s rear bumper cover and preventing him from his first career top-3 finish at the track. “Maybe I overreacted a small amount but I wanted him to know I was not happy with what took place,” Biffle recalled Tuesday during an appearance at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Biffle said he was the fastest car on the track for 65 laps at Martinsville when Johnson rear-ended him and knocked off the bumper cover. Biffle had to pit to repair the damage, restarted at the back of the field and finished ninth. With a better finish, Biffle believed he would have moved up at least two positions from eighth in the Sprint Cup standings. So he was admittedly “furious” when he approached Johnson, who argued he did not run into Biffle and had been racing “inside” of Biffle. “His claim that he was inside me is not true,” Biffle said. “The TV part of it has done a horrible job. They show me and him side-byside and the bumper is flying off. Well, that was a lap and a half after he hit me. Show it where the bumper was secure, not flapping. That was the incident. You watch all the coverage and they take it out of context. They don’t have the story right.” It’s led to confusion among fans who have angrily tweeted to Biffle since the confrontation with Johnson that it was Dale Earnhardt Jr. who actually damaged Biffle’s bumper. Biffle said there were two separate incidents, one with Earnhardt and one with Johnson, and TV has failed to tell the entire story or show that his Roush-Fenway Racing team stopped to repair the bumper after Earnhardt caused damage. “Lots of people were confused: ‘Oh,

said. “But he’s really better. I anticipated he would be better. He’s better than better.” Then he stopped and laughed at what he had just said. “Nice job. That’s my master’s degree from Ohio State — better than better,” he added with a smile. ANOTHER WATCH LIST: LB Ryan Shazier has been selected as one of the 16 semifinalists for the Maxwell Football Club’s Bednarik Award, given annually to the nation’s defensive player of the year. He already is on the watch list for the Butkus and Lott IMPACT awards. The winner of the 19th Bednarik Award will be announced on Dec. 12. Three finalists will be announced on Nov. 25. ON THE OTHER SIDE: Former Buckeyes LB Marcus Freeman will be on the other side of the field on Saturday. He’s in his first season as LBs coach for the Boilermakers. Freeman, a standout alongside James Laurinaitis with the Buckeyes from 2004-08, was a fifthround draft pick of the Chicago Bears. After giving up on his pro career, he took a job as LBs coach at Kent State under former Ohio State assistant Darrell Hazell, then moved to Purdue when Hazell took the job there after last season. Current Ohio State co-defensive coordinator Luke Fickell joked that he tried to help him choose a different profession. “I tried to talk him out of it,” Fickell said with a laugh. “Any kid, player, even my own son, the first thing you try to do is talk them out of it. Crazy business, a lot of things you give up. Obviously there’s things you get.” Fickell said that Freeman fit the mold of a former player who also wanted to coach. “He loved the game, he enjoyed the game, he understood the game,” he added. Cleveland.com reported that Laurinaitis stopped by Freeman’s home in West Lafayette, Ind., this summer. “We had just finished a wall in our house that you’re able to write on in chalk,” Freeman said. “And I said make sure anybody that comes to visit our house, you’ve got to sign the wall.” Odds are Freeman hasn’t invited over many of the other members of the staff, however. “He put, ‘James Laurinaitis, Go Bucks’,” Freeman added.

he didn’t know the bumper got torn off by the 88’,” Biffle continued. “Well, I’m driving the car, OK? I had to pit and fix the bumper because NASCAR wanted us to work on it. I love the guys on Twitter, they’re showing me this picture: ‘The bumper is already coming off, see?’ Yeah, that was before we fixed it. Not after.” Biffle is annoyed by the entire controversy, insisting he was the victim on Sunday who has now been attacked by fans for defending himself against Johnson. “I went over to tell him I was unhappy about it; I would do it again today,” Biffle added. “Isn’t this what the fans want to see? Don’t they want to see passion and emotion? Well, it’s going to be five more years before I grab somebody by the collar. Why? Because I got chopped up. That stuff affects you.” Although he said he planned to call Johnson, Biffle couldn’t help but fire a warning as the series heads to Texas Motor Speedway with Johnson and Matt Kenseth tied in the race for the Sprint Cup championship. Biffle asked reporters if Johnson will have a reinforced bumper for Sunday’s race. “He’s running for a title, right?” Biffle asked. “Just checking.”

Woods was instrumental in getting the HSBC Champions launched. He was runner-up in 2005 and 2006, attracting huge crowds. He returned in 2009 when it was a WGC (though not official on the PGA Tour) and was upstaged by Mickelson in the final round. And the London-based financial company has been involved with Woods as a founding partner of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. “He’s genuinely a friend of the company,” Morgan said. Woods hasn’t been back since 2010. These outings could signal a change in his economic model, for Woods no longer has the blue-chip corporate support he enjoyed for so many years. Since his personal life crumbled after he was exposed for serial adultery at the end of 2009, he no longer has endorsement deals with Accenture, AT&T, Gatorade, Gillette and Tag Heuer. EA Sports is the most recent corporate relationship to end, after 15 years. Woods signed a deal with Rolex in October 2011 and five weeks later announced a deal with Florida-based Fuse Science to display its logo on his bag. For the last two years, however, he hasn’t added another sponsor. What remains unknown is whether companies aren’t interested or the price tag is too high. Meanwhile, HSBC staged a photo call Tuesday afternoon in the riverfront Bund district to celebrate the start of the tournament. It wasn’t long ago that Woods and Mickelson shared the stage by playing Chinese checkers. This time, defending champion Ian Poulter was joined by Mickelson, McIlroy, Dufner and Rose. They dressed in ceremonial cloaks with traditional weapons and performed with the Shanghai Jingju Company on a rooftop overlooking the Bund. The theme was “returning heroes.”

Sometimes, high school games hinge on good fortune
By RUSTY MILLER Associated Press Sometimes a game hinges on, well, luck. Leipsic quarterback Zach Kuhlman scored on a 1-yard dive with just over a minute left as the Vikings upended Division VII No. 8 McComb 44-40. The game-winning drive was kept alive when Kuhlman lofted a pass to receiver Garet Bardall. The ball went through Bardall’s hands, bounced off his facemask, popped into the air and, with Bardall flat on his back, fell directly into the receiver’s hands for a 32-yard completion and a first down at the 7. Kuhlman scored two plays later. “I’m running down the field and I’m thinking it’s min, and I don’t know, I started thinking about dropping it,” Bardall said. “I thought, ‘I can’t drop this ball.’ So, it bounces off my facemask and I fell on my back. “It fell right in my hands. I’m happy I got it. Praise the Lord for that one.” Kuhlman had his own theory. “It seems like in practice every time I throw to him, he falls down,” he explained with a laugh. “At first, I saw him wide open. It looked like maybe a defensive back had fallen down. And, of course, he fell down. I thought for sure he dropped it this time. But, he’s a senior and he made a big play for us. He really came through for us.” AIR RAID: Columbia’s Jay Banyasz set a Lorain County record with seven TD passes in a 53-13 win over Brooklyn — he was 24-for-36 for 390 yards with no interceptions; and Pandora-Gilboa’s Alex Osborne caught just five passes but four went for TDs covering 12, 45, 23 and 26 yards in a 60-0 win over Arcadia. LAND ROVERS: Sullivan Black River’s Andrew Vaughn ran for 344 yards and three TDs on 18 carries and also caught a 57-yard scoring pass in a 51-20 win over Brookside; Sandusky Perkins’ Dale Irby rushed for 276 yards and three TDs on 18 carries in 48-28 win at Oak Harbor; in his last two games, Chillicothe Southeastern’s Dezmond Perkins has 60 carries for 616 yards and five TDs; Kenton, one of the more prolific passing teams in the state, scored all four times via the run in a 28-14 win over Celina; and Minerva’s Dalton Hartshorn ran for 266 yards and two TDs on 27 carries in leading the Lions past West Branch 21-14. VERSATILE: Sandusky’s Mike Delk returned an interception a schoolrecord 103 yards, brought back a punt 80 yards for a TD and caught a 40-yard TD pass in a 27-13 win at Mansfield Ontario. NOTEWORTHY: Huron QB Cody Thompson, a Toledo recruit, finished with 369 all-purpose yards and four TDs in a 35-7 win at Milan Edison; Chillicothe beat East Clinton 28-0 — and did not allow a point at home this season — giving coach Ron Hinton his 300th career victory; Mansfield Senior is 9-0 for the first time in 114 years of playing high school football; St. Marys Memorial and Van Wert are both 0-9 as they face off this weekend; Sylvania Southview LB Myles Magnus — the grandson of Green Bay Packers great Jerry Kramer — recorded 14 tackles in the Cougars win over Napoleon 32-0; and Cincinnati Christian, which has never won more than three games in a season and is coached by former Cincinnati Bengal David Fulcher, is 5-4 and still alive in the Division VII playoff race heading into its game against St. Bernard. LONG GAINERS : Johnny Giesige had 66, 58 and 54-yard TD runs, along with a 58-yard TD pass to Noah Karcason, and Kaleb Johns had a 55-yard rushing touchdown and a 55-yard interception return for a score in Hicksville’s 47-20 win over Holgate. RELIEF PITCHER: Maria Stein Marion Local, ranked No. 1 in Division VII, was forced to use its emergency backup QB when trailing Anna 3-0 going to the fourth quarter. With starter

Adam Bertke out the last several weeks with a broken bone in his hand, backup Dustin Rethman left the game with a shoulder injury and third-string backup Cole Griesdorn was injured in the JV game earlier that week. WR Troy Homan, who took snaps as the emergency backup in practice, threw a 31-yard TD pass to Hunter Wilker with 8:43 left. Wilker later scored on a 45-yard run to keep the Flyers unbeaten with a 14-3 win. LONG WAIT: Columbus St. Charles captured its first Central Catholic League title since 1962, the first year the league crowned a champion, with a win over Columbus Watterson. The win marked the first time that the Cardinals defeated old nemeses Watterson and Columbus DeSales in the same season. St. Charles snapped a 36-game losing streak to DeSales earlier in the season. TALL ORDER: The teams of two of the tallest players in the state — Salineville Southern’s 6-8 Caleb Gotschall and Lisbon David Anderson’s 6-7 Jannik Schmidt — met Friday. Schmidt, an exchange student, made all four of his extra points in the Blue Devils’ 28-7 win. FINALLY : West Salem Northwestern’s Matt Kohler made a drop-kick extra point in the fourth quarter to complete the Huskies’ scoring in a 57-0 win at Rittman on Friday. “Kohler had tried a drop-kick and missed it in a scrimmage when we didn’t have a kicker,” said Huskies assistant coach Brian Sampsel, whose team improved to 8-1 and clinched a playoff spot. “We wanted to give him another chance so we had a little fun with it. So we called for our ‘Kohler Kick’ formation. The refs weren’t sure what we were doing when he lined up in punt formation — one of them asked if we were going to punt.” The Ohio High School Athletic Association website listed the last drop-kick extra point by Jeromesville Hillsdale’s Brian Mollenshott in 1999.

When divorce in not an option Tomorrow’s
By Bernice Bede Osol


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2013 Plan to have some fun in the year ahead. Decorating, renovating or making a positive move that allows you greater freedom to pursue outside interests will be just what the doctor ordered. Activity and innovation will spur valuable new relationships. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Put more muscle and elbow grease behind any job you’re asked to do. By taking on more responsibility, you will encourage others to look to you for answers. Take control of your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Don’t give in too easily today. Do what you can to help others, but keep personal information a secret. Sharing a good time is one thing, but divulging your feelings is something else. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Take pride in what you do, and you will be given the opportunity to take on more responsibility. It’s a good day to attend to business, sign deals or firm up on an agreement. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Expect to receive plenty of suggestions from well-meaning individuals, but when it comes down to making a decision, you will be best served by taking a chance and doing things your way. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -You’ve got what it takes to get what you want. Don’t wait for someone else to step in and take over. Broaden your plans and expect to raise your standard of living. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You’ll thrive on change. Share your emotions and don’t be afraid to stand up to anyone acting pushy. Someone from a different background will spark your interest. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Discuss your plans and get started on them. The more energy you put behind whatever you do, the more interest you will gather. A partnership will increase your chance to excel. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Work relentlessly and put your signature on whatever you do if you want to receive star treatment. Compliments will encourage you to make an important move. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- He who hesitates is lost. Don’t let an emotional situation ruin your plans or your fun. Getting involved in an event, activity or social gathering will be to your benefit. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone is likely to face off against you. You will have to make an instant decision followed by a fast move if you want to maintain what you’ve worked so hard to achieve. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Bend a little, and you will get whatever you want. Conversations will help you gain respect and the support you need to achieve your goals. Good fortune will come from helping others. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don’t second-guess yourself. If you don’t understand, ask. Once you have a clear picture regarding what you are supposed to do, you will be able to add your own touch. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

Health policy cancellations: New blow for Obama admin.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Move over, website woes. Lawmakers confronted the Obama administration Tuesday with a difficult new health care problem — a wave of cancellation notices hitting individuals and small businesses who buy their own insurance. At the same time, the federal official closest to the website apologized for its dysfunction in new sign-ups and asserted things are getting better by the day. Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner said it’s not the administration but insurers who are responsible for cancellation letters now reaching many of the estimated 14 million people who buy individual policies. And, officials said, people who get cancellation notices will be able to find better replacement plans, in some cases for less. The Associated Press, citing the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, reported in May that many carriers would opt to cancel policies this fall and issue new ones. Administratively that was seen as easier than changing existing plans to comply with the new law, which mandates coverage of more services and provides better financial protection against catastrophic illnesses. While the administration had ample warning of the cancellations, they could become another public relations debacle for President Barack Obama’s signature legislation. This problem goes to the credibility of one of the president’s earliest promises about the health care overhaul: You can keep your plan if you like it.

AKHSHTYR, Russia (AP) — Trucks rumble to the edge of a gigantic pit filled with spray cans, tires and foam sheets and dump a stream of concrete slabs that send up a cloud of limestone dust. Other trucks pile clay on top and a bulldozer mixes everything together in a rudimentary effort to hide the mess. This landfill outside Sochi, which will host the Winter Olympics in 100 days, is smack in the middle of a water protection zone where dumping industrial waste is banned. As a centerpiece of its Olympic bid, Russia trumpeted a “Zero Waste” program that promised the cleanest games ever, saying it would refrain from dumping construction waste and rely on reusable materials. But on a visit last week to Akhshtyr, just north of Sochi, The Associated Press found that Russia’s stateowned rail monopoly is dumping tons of construction waste into what authorities call an illegal landfill, raising concerns of possible contamination in the water that directly supplies Sochi. The finding shows how little Russia has done to fulfill its ambitious green pledges. Its $51 billion budget for the Olympics contains no provisions for treating construction waste. In a letter obtained by the AP, the Environmental Protection Agency in the area where Sochi is located told the Black Sea resort’s environment council in lateAugust that it had inspected the Akhshtyr landfill and found “unauthorized dumping of construction waste as well as soil from excavation works.” The agency said it fined Russian Railways, whose Sochi project costs billions of dollars, $3,000 for the dumping. It didn’t order the dump closed.

Dow closes at a record high as Fed meeting begins
NEW YORK (AP) — The Dow Jones industrial average is back in record territory. Investors drove the Dow to an all-time high Tuesday on expectations that the Federal Reserve will keep its economic stimulus program in place. The Fed is in the middle of a two-day policy meeting at which it’s expected to maintain its $85 billion worth of monthly bond purchases. That program is aimed at stimulating economic growth

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — The U.N. confirmed an outbreak of polio in Syria for the first time in over a decade on Tuesday, warning the disease threatens to spread among an estimated half-million children who have never been immunized because of the civil war. The grim finding added another layer of misery to a brutal conflict that has already killed more than 100,000 people and uprooted millions. The aid group Save the Children urged a “vaccination cease-fire” to try to prevent an epidemic of the highly contagious disease. Meanwhile, hopes for a negotiated settlement to the threeyear conflict appeared ever more distant as Syria’s President Bashar Assad sacked a deputy prime minister for meeting Western officials to discuss the possibility of holding a peace conference — the latest blow to diplomatic efforts to bring the country’s warring parties to the negotiating table. At least 10 cases of polio among babies and toddlers were confirmed in northeastern Syria, the World Health Organization said — the first outbreak of the crippling disease in 14 years. Nearly all Syrian children were vaccinated against polio before the civil war began. WHO spokesman Oliver Rosenbauer said the U.N. agency was awaiting lab results on another 12 suspected cases, mostly children under 2. “This is a communicable disease. With population movements it can travel to other areas,” Rosenbauer said. “So the risk is high of spread across the region.”


by keeping borrowing costs at historic lows. “The expectation that the Fed remains clearly on hold is the catalyst for this march higher,” said Quincy Krosby, a market strategist at Prudential Financial. Stocks have surged to record levels this year as the Fed’s stimulus has helped corporations boost profits. Relatively low yields on bonds have also encouraged investors to buy stocks.

Students logged their observations eight times, including germination rate, height, number of leaves, color and comparisons to the other beds of radishes with the other variables. After eight weeks, the radishes were pulled and the total mass of the entire plant was taken. This was a measure of the total biomass that was created by the plant. Overall, the fresh cow manure and the compost grew the most radish mass in one class with the Miracle Grow brand fertilizer the top in the other class. The lawn fertilizer was actually detrimental to the plants as many didn’t even germinate, even after a second planting.

When the conversions to pounds were made in each class, students found that 37 pounds of radish biomass was grown in the one class and 47 pounds in the other. That is 84 pounds of radish biomass grown from two beds that are four feet by 12 feet total. Once the tops and roots were cut off, approximately three five-gallon buckets of radishes were harvested. The students are now finalizing their report on the project, which includes a line graph of the days of the project versus the height of the radishes, a bar graph which shows the control and the five variables versus the amount of mass per radish grown and a report on the conclusions of the project.

Answers to Monday’s questions: President Woodrow Wilson kept sheep at the White House as part of the war effort. In 1917, during World War I, President Wilson arranged for a small flock of sheep to graze on the White House lawn, thus freeing up regular gardeners for military service. Although the sheep began eating more than the White House lawn, the Wilsons continued to defend them — citing, among other things, the vast amounts of “White House wool” the sheep generated for the Red Cross. The original Peeping Tom was a tailor who dared to look at Lady Godiva as she rode through Coventry. In 1040, Lady Godiva’s husband, Leofric, Earl of Mercia and Lord of Coventry, agreed to rescind a tax on the town if Lady Godiva rode naked through the streets. Godiva asked everyone to observe custody of the eyes — and, everyone did, except Tom. Today’s questions: Who is the most married person in history? Who is the only woman to have won the U.S. Medal of Honor? Answers in Thursday’s Herald. Today’s joke: A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, “Excuse me, can you help? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.” The woman below replied, “You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude.” “You must be an engineer,” said the balloonist. “I am,” replied the woman. “How did you know?” “Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of you, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help so far.” The woman below responded, “You must be in management.” “I am,” replied the balloonist, “but how did you know?” “Well,” said the woman, “you don’t know where you are or where you are going. You have risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it’s my fault!”
