Recker named Habitat Volunteer of Year

Year for small affiliates. He will be honored this Friday at the Habitat for Humanity Ohio Statewide Conference in Columbus. Recker is the volunteer construction manager for Putnam County Habitat for Humanity. In 2012 and 2013, Recker volunteered over 1,500 hours on the construction of three homes in Putnam County. In addition to overseeing the construction sites, he arranged for all the permits, coordinated all the subcontractors, handled all the purchasing of materials and supplies and worked closely with the Putnam County Habitat for Humanity construction committee on house plans and designs. His dedication has him on the job site every day of construction, as well as most non-construction days when he stops to see that everything is as it should be at the construction site, said Chas Myers, Putnam County HFH director. Pauls deep sense of God calling him to this ministry is infectious. All of our volunteers have commented on his spirituality and his sense of mission. Under Reckers leadership, Putnam County HFH built the first Habitat home in Ohio certified by Enterprise Green Communities. This required many extra hours of planning the construction and researching the materials and methods needed to achieve the Enterprise Green standard. See HABITAT, page 3

Exchange helping Mller attain goals

BY ERIN COX Staff Writer DELPHOS Madeleine Mller had wanted to come to the United States since she was a child and the first chance she got to fulfill that dream, she took it. Mller is one of five German cultural exchange students living in Delphos for five months. She is from Werther, Germany, where one of the teachers at her school is from Verl, the sister city of Delphos, and offers students in both cities the opportunity to take part in the exchange program. When she first learned of this chance to go to the US, she knew she wanted to do it but her parents were not as convinced. They didnt want me to do it but now theyre so proud of me for coming here, Mller said. Besides wanting to visit her childhood dreamland, Mller said she wanted to

Mller accomplish other goals as well. I like meeting new people and I want to be able to say I have friends all over the world, she said. I also wanted to see new things and learn to speak the language better. Since she came to Delphos, Mller has been steadily accomplishing her goals. See GOALS, page 3

Obama's health law finally gets real for America

WASHINGTON (AP) Now is when Americans start figuring out that President Barack Obamas health care law goes beyond political talk, and really does affect them and people they know. With a cranky federal website complicating access to new coverage and some consumers being notified their existing plans are going away, the potential for winners and losers is creating anxiety and confusion. Ive had questions like, Are they going to put me in jail if I dont buy insurance? Because nobody will sell it to me, said Bonnie Burns, a longtime community-level insurance counselor from California. We have family members who are violently opposed to Obamacare and they are on Medicaid they dont understand that theyre already covered by taxpayer benefits. And then there is a young man with lupus who would have never been insurable,

For The Record

At 12:27 p.m. Sunday, Delphos Police were contacted by a subject who stated that there were two male subjects in the area of East Second and North Franklin streets that he believed were breaking into vehicles parked in that area. Upon officers arrival, they located a subject matching the physical description of one of the subjects involved. Upon making contact, officers found the subject had several active arrest warrants and Dustin Kunz, 23, of Delphos, was taken into custody and later turned Kunz over to deputies from the Allen County Sheriffs Department. At 9:19 p.m. Saturday, Police received a call from a motorist who was advising they were behind a driver that appeared to be intoxicated and was a danger to other motorists. Upon officers arrival in the 1700 block of East Fifth Street, they located the vehicle and found Heather Zinn, 30, of Delphos, at which time it was learned that she was operating the vehicle while impaired and also while having her driving privileges suspended. As a result, Zinn was taken Zinn into custody by officers and transported to the Delphos Police Department for further investigation. Zinn was cited on the charges into Lima Municipal Court and was later released to a sober adult.



Burns continued. He is on his parents plan and hell be able to buy his own coverage. They are very relieved. A poll just out from the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation documents shifts in the country in the month since insurance sign-ups began. Fifty-five percent now say they have enough information to understand the laws impact on their family, up 8 percentage points in just one month. Part of the reason is that advertising about how to get coverage is beginning to register. The law is getting more and more real for people, said Drew Altman, the foundations president. A lot of this will turn on whether theres a perception that there have been more winners than losers. Its not whether an expert thinks something is a better insurance policy, its whether people perceive it that way. A look at three groups impacted by the laws rollout:

Mller attends St. Johns and also takes hip hop dance classes at Dancer by Gina, both of which have made it easy to make new friends. The first day at school I was overwhelmed by all the new people but Im use to it now and I like all my classmates, she said. She has also been traveling with her host family, Dennis and Amy Youngpeter, and the other cultural exchange students to help her attain her goal of seeing new things. She has visited Columbus, Nashville, Chicago, Lake Michigan and will go to New York in a couple of weeks. Of the places she has seen, Mller


said Chicago has been her favorite. I loved the city and being able to experience it with the other exchange students, she said. While in Chicago, the group visited the Willis Tower, the zoo, museums, an aquarium and they also went shopping and on a boat ride. It was pretty cool and I loved every minute, Mller said. She also enjoyed seeing a different lifestyle in Nashville. It was a big city but it didnt feel like it and the country music was cool, Mller said. She has also enjoyed spending time in Delphos and has had fun going to the high school football games. Its so much fun, I want to go every-

day, she said. I like going with all the girls and cheering in the crowd. As far as reaching her goal of speaking English better, the first couple of weeks were the toughest, Mller said, but she always had people willing to explain what something meant and that helped her a lot. Now that Mller has been in the US for three months, she feels she has done a good job of accomplishing what she wanted to do while here and with two months left, she said she is most excited for Thanksgiving. Since we dont have Thanksgiving in Germany, Im excited to see the family come together for this one day and I want to see more football games, Mller said.

In 2012, Recker planned and executed the first Habitat home in Ohio rated bronze level by IBHS, certified to withstand winds up to 130 mph. Ironically, that home had just been completed on June 28, the day before the derecho windstorm hit on June 29, said Myers. The partner familys rented mobile home was hit by a large fallen tree and severely damaged. Their new Habitat home had no damage and the family was able to move into it immediately. The partner family for 2013 had serious handicap issues, including the wife needing to use a motorized wheelchair. Paul led others on the construction committee in designing a fully handicap accessible home with all onlevel entrances and no wheelchair ramps, Myers said. In addition, since the homeowner could not enter a crawl space in the event of a storm, Recker designed the laundry room as a safe room. Myers said Recker has embraced Energy Star building standards. During 2012 and 2013, he hosted an

Energy Star open house on the Putnam County homes under construction before the drywall was installed. This gave contractors and the general public an opportunity to see the new and innovative construction techniques being used to make the homes energy-efficient, Myers said. Recker has also got his wife involved as a volunteer coordinator. He has also recruited his brothers, sons and son-in-law to work on a variety of aspects of construction. Recker has served on the

Putnam County HFH board of directors for three years and as a construction manager for three years. There is no way a young, all volunteer affiliate could have built six homes in four years without a volunteer like Paul Recker, Myers said. When asked how he feels about the honor, Recker just smiles modestly. Its an honor for all of us, he replied. It takes everyone to accomplish what has been done. Habitat for Humanity of Ohio is an independent, charitable, faith-based hous-

ing program dedicated to the elimination of poverty housing by providing resources to its 69 affiliates in Ohio. Habitat for Humanity builds simple, decent and affordable houses and provides interestfree mortgages to families who would otherwise not be able to purchase their own home. The Habitat program is about home ownership and providing a long-term solution designed to break the poverty cycle.

CBS Films Last Vegas, featuring an all-star cast of silver screen veterans including Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline, opened in third place, with $16.5 million. Its interesting to see the number of stars that are not in their 20s in the top films, Dergarabedian said. Enders Game has Harrison Ford and Viola Davis, and Last Vegas is like a Hangover for the older crowd. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney (in Gravity) appeal to an older audience, and 12 Years a Slave, which continues to impress as it expands into more and more theaters, is a very sophisticated drama. Relativity Medias 3-D animated kiddie flick Free Birds, with characters voiced by Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler, debuted in the fourth spot, with $16.2 million. After its fifth weekend at the box office, the Warner Bros. 3-D stunner Gravity is still holding in the fifth position. It banked $13.1 million over the weekend, bringing its domestic total to $220 million. Internationally, it gained $27.1 million. Considered an Oscar contender, 12 Years a Slave earned $4.6 million at No. 7 in its third weekend. Overseas, Disneys Thor: The Dark World earned an impressive $109.4 million in its first international weekend. The Marvel superhero sequel opens domestically next weekend. With the opening of Thor: The Dark World, Disneys cumulative international box office for 2013 has passed the studios previous international record of $2.303 billion, which was set in 2010.

TOLEDO (AP) Organizers say most of the exhibits for a new Great Lakes maritime museum in northwest Ohio should be in place by early December, and its opening is planned in April. The displays at the National Museum of the Great Lakes in Toledo will include a 160-year-old lifesaving boat from Kelleys Island. Its the oldest Great Lakes boat known to exist in its original construction but couldnt be displayed at the Great Lakes Historical Societys old museum in Vermilion because it was too large, The Blade newspaper ( reported. Its already in place at its new home. The societys executive director, Christopher Gillcrist, said this week that more exhibits will be in place soon. Its going to happen quickly, going to happen dramatically over the next few weeks, he said. The project is expected to cost nearly $12.9 million, and the fundraising continues with a dinner in mid-December. Almost $10.5 million of that has been covered, including more than $6 million in state grants and $1 million in private donations or in-kind support.

Grothaus, Grandstaff All-Ohio at State Cross Country

By Charlie Warnimont DHI Correspondent HEBRON Reactions were mixed after the state cross country meet Saturday at National Trail Raceway outside of Hebron. While runners are happy to make the state tournament, they want to perform their best on the big stage. Only two local athletes left the state meet somewhat happy with their performances. Crestviews Mycah Grandstaff earned first-team honors in the boys Division III race, while Columbus Groves Colin Grothaus also picked up firstteam honors. Teams competing from Lincolnview, Columbus Grove and Van Wert boys and girls were left a bit perplexed by their performances in their respective divisions. Grandstaff, competing as an individual for Crestview, was pleased with his run in the Division III race as he finished 15th in 16:27.29. The top 16 runners in each division are accorded all-Ohio honors. The finish for Grandstaff may have come as a little bit of a surprise as his qualifying time was in the mid 30s for all runners competing. I feel great, Grandstaff said. I knew coming into the race, I was nowhere near the top 16; I was sitting between 35 and 40. I came out here and ran my best and I just pushed ahead. I did what I could. Making his third appearance at state was a big help for Grandstaff as he knew what to expect if he wanted to be near the front of the field. I sat back a little bit the first mile and I came up to the front a little bit between the first and second mile. Between the second and third mile, I held my position. This is my third year making it here, so I knew the first mile was going to be pretty quick. I came through the first mile at 5:06; I just ran my own race, Grandstaff added. Columbus Groves Grothaus, a junior, finished 21st in the race in 16:38.72. Although he still picked up all-Ohio honors, he was slightly disappointed in his race as he was looking for a better finish. I really wanted to get top 16 and get on the podium, Grothaus said. I didnt PR or anything. I was aiming for allOhio and I think I got that. I was actually


Columbus Groves Colton Grothaus (left) and Lincolnviews Alex Rodriguez (right) were the top placers for their respective boys teams Saturday 21st and 44th at the Division III State Cross Country Meet in Hebron. (Delphos Herald/Charlie Warnimont) 16th with a mile to go but I didnt have a great kick. My legs were pretty tired and I got passed by a few guys. As a team, the Bulldogs finished ninth in the Division III standings with 195 points. Logan Douglas was the second Bulldog across the finish line as he was 65th in 17:19.53 while Jerry Kesselmayer was right behind him in 66th in 17:20.55. Lee Altenburger finished 76th in 17:31.65 and Bryce Sharrits was 100th in 17:52.61. Alex Tabler finished 103rd in 17:55.76 and Boone Brubaker was 132nd in 18:48.78. The Lincolnview boys finished 12th in the Division III standings with 276 points. That was about where we were coming in, Lancer coach Matt Langdon said. This team did a phenomenal job just making it here. Every step of the way, they kept improving and they were very few people that thought we would be here, so for us, it was all about the journey of it. We just didnt have the experience and emotion we needed for a race like this. Alex Rodriguez led the Lancers with a 44th-place finish in 17:01.57. Bayley Tow was 67th in 17:21.74, while Ben Bilimek was 81st in 17:38.95, Travis Lippi was 112th in 18:02.61 and Colton Snyder was 124th in 18:18.5. Trevor Neate was 131st in 18:43.7 and Tracey West was 135th in 19:00.6. Today wasnt our best team race. I think last week (regionals) was our best race, Langdon added. We had tremendous support from the school and community and I think that may have taken its toll on the team. All the attention makes it hard to relax and you are tired; I know I was physically exhausted before the race started from all the emotion and I think that transferred to the kids. They ran hard and they enjoyed the experience. They are a little disappointed right now but once they get to reflect on what they did, I think they will be OK. One team that was disappointed in their race Saturday was the Van Wert boys team. The Cougars had some high expectations for state but things didnt quite go their way as they finished 10th with 205 points. See STATE, page 8

Browns beat Ravens 24-18, end long losing streak

By TOM WITHERS Associated Press CLEVELAND The Browns punched the AFC Norths biggest bully in the mouth. The defending Super Bowl champion Ravens are wobbling. Jason Campbell threw three touchdown passes two to Davone Bess and the Browns ended an 11-game losing streak against Baltimore, beating the Ravens 24-18 on Sunday. Campbells 3-yard pass to Bess on fourth down with three minutes left helped the Browns (4-5) seal their first win over Baltimore since 2007. A week ago, Bess dropped a pass in a similar situation in the closing minutes of a loss at Kansas City. The Ravens (3-5) lost their third straight and didnt win in the week following a bye for the first time in six tries under coach John Harbaugh. Baltimores Joe Flacco had a pair of TD passes to rookie Marlon Brown but the Super Bowl MVP couldnt rally the Ravens, who made too many mistakes and are in danger of missing the playoffs. Making his second straight start after Brandon Weeden was benched, Campbell completed 23-of-35 passes for 262 yards. The 9-year veteran was at his best in the closing minutes, when the Browns ran 6:30 off the clock to finish off the Ravens, who have lost four out of five. Campbell, who briefly left the game in the first half with a rib injury, evaded pressure before making his big completion to Bess and later alertly flipped the ball to running back Chris Ogbonnaya to set up Billy Cundiffs 22-yard field goal with 14 seconds left to put the Browns ahead by six. The Ravens had one last chance but running back Ray Rice was tackled near midfield as the Browns beat Baltimore for the first time since Flacco and Harbaugh arrived. Browns wide receiver Greg Little had seven catches for 122 yards. Flacco finished 24-of-41 for 250 yards but Baltimores offense sputtered most of the game against Clevelands vastly improved defense. Down 21-10 and running out of time, Flacco connected with Brown for a 7-yard TD with 12:09 left and then hit him again for the 2-point conversion to cut Clevelands lead to three. Tandon Doss, who earlier fumbled away a punt, set up the score with a 36-yard return that sparked the Ravens. But it was the Browns who made the big plays in the closing minutes, none more important than Bess grab as coach Rob Chudzinski went for it on fourth down with 3:12 left. The Browns capitalized on a muffed punt by Doss to open a 21-10 lead in the third as Campbell threw a 4-yard TD pass to Gary Barnidge with 5:11 left. Baltimores defense, missing Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, was uncharacteristically confused during the sequence as the Ravens were penalized for having 12 men on the field and Barnidge was able to slip away from the line uncovered. After looking dysfunctional for most of the first half, the Ravens came alive in the final minute and pulled to 14-10 on Flaccos 19-yard TD pass to Brown, an undrafted free agent, with nine seconds left. Campbells second TD pass to Bess gave the Browns a 14-3 lead in the second quarter. On 3rd-and-3 from the 20, Campbell a hit a wide-open Bess over the middle and the wide receiver did the rest, faking out cornerback Lardarius Webb at the 10 before sprint-

Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif. Nick Foles tied an NFL mark with seven touchdown passes and threw for 406 yards to revitalize Philadelphia in a 49-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. The backup quarterback connected three times with Riley Cooper to become the seventh passer in NFL history with seven TD tosses in a game. Peyton Manning did it for Denver on opening night this season against Baltimore. Foles also threw scoring passes to Brent Celek, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson as the Eagles (4-5) looked nothing like the offense that failed to score a touchdown in each of the past two weeks. Foles completed 22-of-28 passes as he frequently exploited mismatches and blown coverages, starting with a 42-yard

screen pass to Cooper on the opening drive when the Raiders (3-5) had two defenders trying to match up with three receivers. Foles tied the record with a 5-yard pass to Cooper with 4:28 remaining in the third quarter, matching the mark also held by Sid Luckman, Adrian Burk, George Blanda, Y.A. Tittle and Joe Kapp. SEAHAWKS 27, BUCCANEERS 24, OT SEATTLE Steven Hauschka kicked a 27-yard field goal with 8:11 left in overtime and the Seahawks overcame a 21-point deficit to beat the Buccaneers for their greatest comeback in franchise history. Trailing 21-0, Russell Wilson rallied Seattle (8-1). He threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin with 1:51 left in regulation to pull the Seahawks even. Wilson then led Seattle on a 9-play, 51-yard drive in overtime capped by

ing into the end zone and then celebrating by slapping hands with Browns fans reaching over the railing. A week ago, Bess had a hard time finding any friends in Cleveland. His critical fumble on a punt return and a dropped pass in the final minutes denied the Browns any chance of rallying to upset the unbeaten Chiefs. Bess, who entered the game tied for the league lead in drops, didnt make any excuses for the miserable performance and vowed to atone for his mistakes. In the first quarter, Bess caught a 1-yard TD pass from Campbell, fighting off two defenders to haul in the throw at the goal line after Chudzinski rolled the dice and went for it on 4th-and-goal. The Ravens trimmed Clevelands lead to 7-3 on Justin Tuckers 51-yard field goal. It was a monumental win for the Browns, who ended a 3-game losing streak and passed their rivals in standings. Coach Rob Chudzinski spent the past week harping on the losing streak to Baltimore. Chud said it was time to end this beating weve been taking, said linebacker Paul Kruger, who played for the Ravens last season. We did what it took and it feels good.

Hauschkas winner. Tampa Bay fell to 0-8 for the first time since 1985 when the Buccaneers started the season 0-9. Mike James rushed for a career-best 158 yards for the Buccaneers. CHIEFS 23, BILLS 13 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Sean Smith returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown and Tamba Hali scored on an 11-yard fumble return in the Chiefs win over Buffalo. The defense made up for a sputtering offense that managed just 210 yards and for its own deficiencies. The Chiefs gave up a season-worst 470 yards to a Bills (3-6) offense that was led by undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel, making his first career start. Tuel finished 18-of-39 for 229 yards passing, including a 59-yard touchdown to Marquise Goodwin. Tuel, however, threw two interceptions that led to 10 points for the Chiefs. See NFL, page 8

Flames eliminate Kalida boys in soccer regional final

By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer FINDLAY Mansfield Christians brother duo of sophomore David Cochran and senior Josh Cochran ran a perfect connection with 10:21 to go to give the Flames the only goal in their 1-0 Division III Regional final triumph over Kalida in boys soccer action Saturday afternoon at Elmer Graham Memorial Soccer Stadium. After a scoreless first half on the wet pitch that saw limited shots on-goal, the Flames (20-1) went to their ball-control attack in the second 40 minutes to try and find openings against the Kalida 11. However, all they managed in the first 20 minutes were three shots that missed the frame: at 35:52 on a 22-yarder by Samuel Paul; at 31:43, a 35-yarder by Nate Adalem; and at 28:55, another 35-yard floater that was over the top. The Wildcats (15-3-3) had a prime chance at 31:06 on a 16-yarder by senior Ian Richey but first a defender slowed the ball down, then keeper Caleb Young (4 saves vs. 4 shots ongoal) got the snag. At the 18:21 mark, Adalem had a 35-yard floater off a free kick that forced Kalida junior netminder Brent Hovest (6 saves vs. 7 shots on-goal) to punch the orb away. At 15:13, Mansfield kept up the pressure but Josh Cochran knocked a 30-yarder riser over the bar. The Maroon and White had an opening at 13:06 when junior Ryan Siefker got a good look from 12 yards but missed just wide left. However, he did not miss the next one. At the 10:21 mark, his younger brother, David Cochran, had a free kick from nearly the same spot in the middle as the previous shot. However, chipped it over the 3-man Wildcat wall and into the 18, where Josh Cochran got behind the defense and put a 12-yarder past Brent Hovest and into the right side of the net. That was a nice play by them and one of the few mistakes we made today. We allowed (Cochran) to get behind us and we werent quick enough to respond, Kalida mentor Mark Czubik explained. Other than that, we played a tremendous match. They have so many weapons they have at three guys that can score and up to five, plus we only had 36 hours to prepare a game plan. They are fast and quick they arent (20-1) for no reason. Still, we stayed right with them and fought and battled to the end, played hard for 80 minutes; I couldnt be prouder. Our best just wasnt good enough today. Mansfield first-year coach Jesse Rider had seen this all before. Those two have done that a few times this year. It was great execution, Rider explained. Kalida was such a tough team for us. Its been a long time since we were shut out the first half, they were that good defensively. We struggled with their midfield and we had to

Kalida senior Ian Richey attempts to use great touch to keep the ball in play against the defense of Mansfield Christians Josh Cochran Saturday afternoon in a boys Division III Regional soccer clash at Findlay High Schools Elmer Graham Memorial Soccer Stadium. Cochran scored the only goal as the Flames ousted the Wildcats 1-0. (Delphos Herald/Jim Metcalfe) adjust to that. We had too many turnovers and made our job a lot harder. Still, this isnt a bad first year for me as coach here. The Wildcats now upped the pressure. They tried to retaliate just 13 seconds after when senior Trevor Guisinger knocked a 16-yarder on the right wing that forced a diving stop by Young. Mansfield had a chance to get more breathing room at 9:10: Brendon Ernsberger let loose from 18 yards on the left side and forced a deflection by Hovest; J. Cochran had a follow shot that went just wide right. With 4:12 left in their season, the Wildcats almost tied it on a 12-yarder by junior Devin Kortokrax but he couldnt quite get control of it and sent it just wide right. Junior Logan Roebke booted a 19-yarder that was deflected by a defender and then gobbled up by the Mansfield keeper. With time running out, Kalida brought Hovest into the offensive end to try and get the equalizer but the last chance they had was at the 29-second mark when junior Luke Langhals was wide left on a 35-yarder. We had some chances all match long. We were trying to the end; we just couldnt find the back of the net, Czubik continued. We have five seniors (Richey, Guisinger, Adam Langhals, Matt Faber and Andrew Krouse) and they stepped up big today. They all played great matches; its what you expect out of your seniors. The Flames (20-1) secured a berth in Wednesdays Division III State semifinal at Nordonia High School against Gates Mills Hawken (13-7-1), a 4-0 victor over previously unbeaten Doylestown Chippewa (17-1-3). Kickoff is at 7 p.m. This group came so far this year; they worked hard every day to get better, Czubik added. When we lost our first match 5-0, we really didnt know what we had or what kind of season we were going to have. We came so far I am not sure many people thought wed make it within a match of going to State. The Wildcats, who secured this match after Wednesdays 2-1 2-overtime victory over Toledo Ottawa Hills, had to adjust quickly to the speedy Flames attack and it took about 20 minutes to do so. Fortunately, they didnt give up a lot of open looks at the goal for Mansfield. They had one at 23 minutes when Brandon Mount had a 16-yarder denied by Hovest. Richey had a 30-yard free kick got just wide left at 16:49 for Kalida. The Maroon and White had two solid efforts the rest of the half: at 8:55, when sophomore Grant Unverferths 22-yarder was denied by Young; and at 6:03, when Kortokrax fired a 25-yard riser just over the crossbar. Mansfield had a golden opportunity at 5:15. Adalem made a nice move down the right side and Hovest came out to try and cut off the angle; however, after a brief but intense flurry, Hovest came up with the ball to prevent a shot. Hovest preserved the scoreless first half at 2:57 when he dove to deny a 20-yard blast by Mount.

Flip-flop-flip: Florida State back in 2nd in BCS

By RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press Florida State is back in second place in the BCS standings, edging past Oregon behind first-place Alabama. The Seminoles lead is thin and their stay at No. 2 could be short again. Third-place Oregon plays Stanford Thursday night and a win is likely to push the Ducks back into second. The Seminoles and Ducks have exchanged positions in the BCS standings the last two weeks. The top two in the final standings play in the BCS championship game. Florida State (.9525 BCS average) is third in both the USA Today coaches poll and Harris poll, though the Seminoles gained ground on the Ducks after a 41-14 victory over Miami on Saturday night. Florida State is No. 1 in the computer ratings. Oregon is second in the polls and third in the computers. Alabama is first in the polls by a hefty margin and second in the computers with five weeks left in the regular season. The Crimson Tide remains on course for a fourth trip to the BCS title game in five seasons. Alabama was won three of the last four national championships, including the last two. Its a big week coming up for the Tide, with LSU coming to Tuscaloosa on Saturday. Unbeaten Ohio State is fourth in the standings, followed by Stanford and unbeaten Baylor. The rest of the top 10 is Clemson, Missouri, Auburn and Oklahoma. Baylor hosts Oklahoma on Thursday night, in the other huge game of the week. Of the potential BCS-busters, teams from non-automatic qualifying conferences looking to earn an automatic bid, Fresno State from the Mountain West is in 16th place and Northern Illinois from the Mid-American Conference is 18th. Both the Bulldogs and Huskies are unbeaten. The highest-rated team from the non-AQ conferences earns an automatic bid by finishing in the top 12 of the final BCS standings or by finishing in the top 16 ahead of a champion from an automatic qualifying conference. Louisville (20th) and Central Florida (21st) are the highest-ranked teams from the American Athletic Conference, which gets an automatic bid.

Team percentages are derived by dividing a teams actual voting points by a maximum 2625 possible points in the Harris Interactive Poll and 1550 possible points in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Six computer rankings are used to determine the overall computer component. The highest and lowest ranking for each team is dropped and the remaining four are added and divided to produce a Computer Rankings Percentage. The six computer ranking providers are Anderson & Hester, Richard Billingsley, Colley Matrix, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin and Peter Wolfe.

Were disappointed, Van Wert coach Brendon Moody said. We had higher expectations than that; we know we are better than where we finished. We just under-performed for whatever reason, whether it was nerves or as a coach I didnt get them mentally prepared for this and have them ready to roll. Ill own up to that aspect of the mental preparation but, unfortunately, they have to own up to the physical preparation. We under-performed today and in this caliber of race, you cannot under-perform or you will get your clocks cleaned. Connor Holliday led the Cougar boys with a 32ndplace finish in 16:53.89, while Connor Shaffer was 46th in 17:02.75 and Daniel Perry was 54th in 17:07.05. Cade Fleming was 93rd in 17:34.43, Jordan Butler was 104th in 17:40.81, Nick Keber was 107th in 17:45.49 and Ryan Rice was 143rd in 19:06.36. You have to get out fast and thats something you have to prepared for, Moody added. We know the race goes out fast and if you are not in it at the mile, odds are you are not going to be in at the 5-K. At the mile, we were ninth, at two miles we were ninth and at the 5-K we werent any better than that. Its unfortunate; it really is. This is a great group

of guys and they deserve to do better than that. The day they ran bad was the state race and thats something we will have to evaluate. Western Buckeye League counterpart Defiance won the Division II state championship finishing with 107 points. On the girls side, the Lady Cougars were 16th with 376 points. Amanda Clay led the Lady Cougars at 68th place in 20:10.9, while Chloee Gamble was 88th in 20:28.8 and Schealissa Williams was 104th in 20:56.5. Natalie Riethman was 120th in 21:29.2, Andi Foster was 122nd in 21:31.1, Megan Barnhart was 128th in 21:48.4 and Whitney Meyers was 139th in 23:48.1. Finishing 16th is always tough. When you finish last in any race, its a tough one to swallow, Moody said. It was just one of those days where the girls didnt run well. For me, I have to re-evaluate that as well. When you have two poor races that you coach and dont run well, you start to question what you do and that is perfectly natural. We have five of these girls back next year, so this was a great experience for them. Both programs have a lot to be proud of today; this is something to build on. Its been a historic season for both programs to get down here. Were happy to be here as there are any number of programs that would trade places with us but it doesnt make it any easier to swallow.

Kansas City (9-0) remained the NFLs only undefeated team and matched the best start in franchise history set in 2003. The Chiefs held an opponent to 17 points or fewer for the ninth straight time matching the NFL record set by the Atlanta Falcons in 1977. JETS 26, SAINTS 20 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Nick Folk remained perfect this season by kicking four field goals, Rex Ryans defense held Drew Brees and the high-scoring Saints to six points in the second half and New York had seven plays of at least 19 yards in an upset of New Orleans. Ryan is now 7-3 against his brother, Rob, and the Jets (5-4) maintained their string of alternating wins and losses. They tied the 2005 New England Patriots for the longest such string to begin a season, according to STATS. Folk is 23-for-23 on field goals and 14-of-14 on extra points.

Tomorrows Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
matters cloud your vision or stand between you and success. Question anyone whos playing emotional games with you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- A last-minute change of plans can be expected. Consider what works best for you and choose the path of least resistance; the less baggage, the better. Dont fold under pressure. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2013 Plunge into whatever interests you wholeheartedly. Explore new possibilities or gather information that will help you get more bang for your buck. Believe in your creative ability and focus on what you get the most pleasure doing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Open, honest communication will help you clear up any uncertainties. Questioning your relationships with peers and colleagues will help you make a wise business choice. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Take precautions and dont say or do something that can come back to haunt you. An innovative way of offering assistance will help you keep a secret.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Rethink past mistakes to avoid making a poor choice now. Dont be afraid to make a decision. Sometimes you have to work backward before you can move forward. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --A contract or financial deal will pay off. A project that interests you will have its problems, but also its advantages. Filter through your options and take what works for you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Keep your head down and your work up to date. The more you can accomplish, the easier it will be to put an emotional issue on the back burner. You deserve a treat, not a headache.

A joint, service-oriented effort will turn out well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Brave whatever storm you face. Dont back down from a challenge; dealing with each demand quickly and efficiently will be the way to maintain control. Invite change and offer suggestions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Talks will lead to resolutions. Your ability to see both sides of any situation will put you in a good position. Romance will improve your personal life.
