Following the pathway to college
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer As high school students gaze into their futures contemplating what direction to go with a college career, admissions officers are pouring over submitted applications and weighing the attributes each potential undergraduate will bring to the campus community. The Ohio State University’s Lima Campus Associate Director of Enrollment Services Bryan M. Albright said a student’s academic rating is very important. The academic rating looks at issues like what the student’s GPA is, what classes they took for that GPA, how competitive their high school is and their test scores. “We hold our academic standards high,” Albright detailed. “The courses taught on our campus are the same courses taught on the Columbus campus and our faculty are part of their respective departments in Columbus. Each are held to the same high standards as Columbus faculty.” He said students choose to attend Ohio State-Lima for three main reasons; affordability, a strong academic reputation and the campus location — close to home for many students. “The US News and World Report has us Over the next year and a half, The Delphos Herald will follow four high school students, now juniors, on their journey to ranked first in Ohio and 16th nationwide academically among public universities and college. This is the second installment of the series.

Delphos, Ohio colleges,” Albright said proudly. Bowling Green State University (BGSU) Interim Director Cecilia Castellano says that the college’s general admission requirements are a cumulative GPA of 2.5 and ACT score of 20. “We look at the entire academic record,” she detailed. “The fall 2013 class has an average GPA of 3.31 and 22.6 ACT score.” Schools look for students who have challenged themselves and expressed a passion for learning. “We review both the GPA and test scores, as well as academic curriculum and class rank,” Castellano emphasized. “A student’s high school grades are very important factors, also.” Albright explained that The Ohio State University at Lima holds to the tradition of Open Enrollment and any Ohio resident who has graduated from high school — or earned a GED — and not attended any other postsecondary school will be admitted. Castellano said review of high school transcripts of students taking rigorous coursework and challenging Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) shows many of these courses provide weighted grades in the cumulative GPA. In addition, students that complete an IB diploma are eligible for a scholarship at BGSU. See PATH, page 10

Items from JFK assassination on display
BY DAN SEWELL The Associated Press DAYTON — Many items that make up the searing images from the assassination of President John F. Kennedy — from the ill-fated presidential limousine, to the gravesite eternal flame, to the historic Air Force One plane where Lyndon B. Johnson took the oath of office — are available for public viewing 50 years later. In some cases, officials had to scramble to make that happen. Aboard the plane, now in a hangar at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, visitors squeeze down a narrow walkway to stand where people packed into its sweltering state room to watch Johnson, Kennedy’s vice president, sworn in, with Jacqueline Kennedy alongside in the suit stained by her husband’s blood. “It’s getting hotter and hotter, people are crammed in, emotions are getting higher and higher,” explained Jeff Underwood, historian of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, reflecting the famous images from the plane. As on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, it wasn’t clear in the first hours after the shooting what was unfolding, he said. Johnson wanted to show the nation that a constitutional transfer of power had been made, and Mrs. Kennedy insisted upon being there, Underwood said. See JFK, page 10

A salute to our veterans


T his and


In honor of all veterans, past and present, I would like to devote this column to a few of the organizations whose purpose it is to thank, remember and aid veterans and their families. Why do we have to have war? It’s so sad when we have to send our men and women off to war. Maybe if more of our leaders or politicians had to be on the front lines of battle, they would think a little harder before they send our men and women off to battle. We all know we would still be ruled by England if those Patriots had not

Then there was the War of 1812, which was really a continuation of our War for Independence. Many of us had ancestors in the Civil War. Then there was the “war to end all wars” and the war to keep Hitler from taking control of the whole world. Then came Pearl Harbor. Since then, we had Korea and Vietnam and all those other wars in the Middle East. I have a grandson in the Air Force and a nephew in the Army over there in one of those fighting countries.

Randy Gasser, US Navy Retired, introduced us and prospective employers to ESGR, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserves. Randy is the lesion between The University of Northwestern Ohio and the military to help veterans and their families attending the University. The Mission of the ESGR is to have employers sign the Statement of Support in regard to their employees who are members of the National Guard or the Reserves and need to go to their training on week-ends or annually and still have their jobs when they return. Some men get deployed and serve for longer periods of time and need to have no fear of losing their jobs, while they are away serving their country. The organization also advocates the hiring of the members of the Reserves or National Guard and also veterans who need employment after serving their country. These men and women make good employees because they have learned to be on time, are physically fit, understand diversity, are loyal and have a can-do attitude. They have been through it and have seen “everything” so sometimes they have a problem with the Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. They need special understanding. If you would like to learn more about ESGR, you can use the website, or phone 1-800-336-4590 or call Gasser at UNOH. The employees are required to give notice to their employer when they know of pending service. We all should remember, especially this week-end to say “Thanks!” to a veteran. We would not be free if these heroes had not served their country so faithfully.

Jury convicts husband Ohio will soon offer 255 specialty plate designs in hospital shooting
AKRON (AP) — An Ohio man who said he fatally shot his hospitalized wife out of love because of her debilitated condition that left her unable to speak, was convicted by a jury on Friday and could face life in prison. Police say John Wise, 68, calmly walked into Barbara Wise’s hospital room on Aug. 4, 2012, and shot her at her bedside. She died the next day. Barbara Wise, 65, was in the intensive care unit at Akron General Medical Center after suffering triple cerebral aneurysms that had left her unable to speak, a family friend has said. Wise testified that he couldn’t stand to see his wife of 45 years in pain in the hospital. “She opened her eyes and looked at me like she was in pain and a tear rolled down her cheek,” Wise told the jury this week. “I decided then what I was going to do.” Hours later he returned to the hospital with a gun. “My recollection is that I walked in there, and within two minutes, I kissed her on the cheek and shot her,” he said. Mercy is not a defense to a murder charge in Ohio. However, defense attorney Paul Adamson said in closing arguments Friday that Wise acted out of love. “He was not there out of hate. He fully believed he was doing the right thing, not the wrong thing,” Adamson told jurors. Summit County Assistant Prosecutor Brian LoPrinzi said Wise’s attorneys were asking jurors to decide the case on mercy. “They are asking you to ignore the law and find him not guilty,” LoPrinzi said. After the verdict, LoPrinzi said Wise declined an offer of a reduced charge of manslaughter, which would have carried a maximum 14-year sentence. Wise will have to serve a minimum of 23 years, LoPrinzi said. He’s scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 18. COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio motorists will soon be able to choose from 255 different specialty license plates after three new ones are added later this month. A new bill, expected to be signed into law by Gov. John Kasich, adds specialty tags for “Nationwide Children’s Hospital,” ”Power Squadron” boating education, and for holders of the Combat Action Ribbon or the Combat Action Badge, according to The Dayton Daily News. Ohio drivers can already shout out their support for cops, cattlemen, firefighters, freemasons, scenic rivers, coal and more. They can tell people to “Celebrate Kids,” ”Choose Life,” ”Donate Life,” ”Share the Road,” ”Support Our Troops,” ”Fish Ohio” or “Visit Our Zoos.” Ohio also offers 58 different plate logos for colleges and universities. Ohio State University is the top seller, with 23,249 sold. The sales generated more than $600,000 in scholarship money for the university and more than $289,000 in extra fees for the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The specialty plates generally cost $15 to $25 more than a standard one. Specialty plate sales generated $3 million last year for university scholarship funds, research efforts, children’s sports leagues, foundations, counseling programs and more. State records showed

they generated $2.6 million in fees for the motor vehicles bureau. Some specialty plates do not generate revenue for outside organizations. For example, no one profited from the sale of 10,242 “One Nation Under God” plates issued last year. Some of the tags require membership or licenses, such as the Realtor “Sold on Ohio” plate or the Civil Air Patrol or Amateur Radio plates. Others are reserved for military service members and their families. Ohio has 8.9 million licensed drivers and 11.8 million registered vehicles. All license plates are made by inmates at Lebanon Correctional Institution. Prisoners there make about 172,200 plates a year. ———

A sorry state of affairs Count your blessings every day
If you’ve been on Facebook the last couple of days, you’ve seen the posts of what people are thankful for. During the month of November, you are supposed to say something you are thankful for each day, not just on Thanksgiving. I’m three days behind so I better get busy and catch up. Day 1: I am thankful for my wonderful husband. He drives me mad, makes me laugh, makes me smile and makes it worth coming home every day after work. We are enjoying each other’s company and working on some small improvements around the house. It feels good. Days 2: I am thankful for the rest of my family from the top on down to the little guy, Ringo. Day 3: I am thankful for all I have. This time of year really makes you take stock of what you have and what you may think you need but don’t. We never truly appreciate what we have until we realize how much we have compared to others. Day 4: I am thankful for all my wonderful friends. To know crazy is to love crazy. Day 5: I am thankful the fall season is upon us. Aaaaah. The crispness of the morning air. The crunch of leaves underfoot. The only problem is now comes the prewinter cleanup. The bushes need trimmed or the Christmas lights will look funny. The flower beds need weeded and everything cut back. Who knows, with the weird

“Among individuals, as among nations, respect for the rights of others is peace.” — Benito Juarez, President of Mexico


On the Other hand
weather we’ve been having, we might have to mow one more time. Day 6: I am thankful I am healthy and feel pretty good most of the time. Day 7: I am thankful for my co-workers who make each and every day worth getting up and coming in to work. Day 8: I am thankful for my job (that I have one and I truly enjoy it). Day 9: I am thankful for my husband’s job. It takes two, baby. I’m just going to go ahead and do Sunday and Monday, too. Why not. I’m on a roll. Day 10: I am thankful I can now wear my layers. I love layers. Day 11: I am thankful it’s snuggle weather! Try it for the month and see what all you’re thankful for. You don’t have to log on to Facebook to make a list. It’s just as good if it’s sitting on the counter or the table. It just matters that you’ve thought about it and perhaps shared a few with someone else.

She made herself a sign that read, “Hire Me” 419-695-0660 and walked through the streets of her hometown, with the hopes that a potential employer would see the sign and offer her an opportunity to prove that the skills she developed while serving could be translated into a civilian job. Unfortunately, Marianne’s struggle to find work is not unique. In fact, after spending a week traveling throughMember SIPC out Ohio, I met with veterans who spent months and in Member SIPC some cases like Marianne’s – years – looking for work after returning home to their communities. That’s because in our state, the unemployment rate IRT-1845A-A Member SIPC • News • Advertising • Sports • Classifieds • Recipes • Politics IRT-1845A-A Member SIPC among Iraq-Afghanistan era veterans is 13.9 percent — almost twice Ohio’s unemployment rate. And the number of veterans across the country receiving unemployment benefits has more than doubled since 2002. Just as we invest in and train our servicemembers while they serve, we should continue to do so when they return to their communities, hang up their uniforms, and embark on the next phase of their lives. I’ve held many hearings across the state where we have discussed how veterans could fill in the skills gap that so many emerging industries are concerned about – like advanced manufacturing. While the economy is beginning to show signs of recovery, many industries are facing a shortage of qualified workers. Our veterans have technical and leadership skills that easily translate to the workforce. AT CONVENIENCE!!

do. And it’s in high-growth occupations. It’s also important to reward the businesses who put our unemployed veterans back to work. That’s why I support more funding for programs through the VOW to Hire Heroes Act — which gives businesses a tax break when they hire veterans. Our servicemembers and veterans deserve our nation’s full support. They deserve elected officials who are willing to put partisan battles aside to ensure that returning veterans have jobs to ease their transition into civilian life. In previous generations, Ohio veterans returned to their hometowns and started small businesses or became firefighters, astronauts, factory workers, or police officers. Half a dozen became President of the United States. For Ohio’s returning veterans today, we have much work to do to ease their transition into civilian life. The Troop Talent Act of 2013 is a great first step. Putting veterans to work will create the stronger economy and better communities we all want.

WASHINGTON — President Obama is no lip-biting, tear-streaking, chin-trembling apologist. When he said he was sorry for the health care mess-up in an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, he performed the mea culpa as well as — if not better than — anyone in recent history. With Trumanesque resolve, he may as well have said, “The devalued dollar stops here.” He’s sorry that some people have been inconvenienced by HealthCare. gov’s computer disaster. He’s sorry that some people have lost the policies he promised they could keep. He’s sorry that the Affordable Care Act wasn’t adequately “crafted.” But is he sorry that he intentionally misled people? I must have missed that part. Here’s what he said: “I am sorry that they [people] are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me. We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and that we’re going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.” A well-delivered apology can often be enough to absolve the “misleader.” Key to redemption, however, is the sense that the apology is heartfelt and sincere. Most important, the apology must be specific to the affront. In this case, the sin isn’t the mess but the promise the White House knew as early as 2010 it couldn’t keep. Harsher critics would call it the deliberate intent to deceive. I tend to be generous with benefits of doubt. Can I imagine a discussion in the White House wherein speechwriters and advisers told the president


Point of View

that full disclosure of the nuts and bolts — that millions would lose policies, which weren’t that good to begin with; that their rates would go up so insurance companies could cover the previously uninsured — would be too confusing? Yes. I can imagine it because that’s exactly what happened, according to former White House speechwriter Jon Favreau. Moreover, the aides reckoned, the next several paragraphs that would be required by the truth would drag audiences through weeds considered too high for most attention spans. Such hubris puts one in mind of an exchange in Woody Allen’s “Manhattan”: “This is an audience that’s raised on television, their standards have been systematically lowered over the years. These guys sit in front of their sets and the gamma rays eat the white cells of their brains out!” Given such thinking, the truth was too much for TV. Not only would people be confused, but the tea-party crazies would re-enact the summer of 2009 when town-hall meetings turned into circuses of screeching malcontents. If there’s one thing Barack Obama dislikes more than schmoozing Congress, it’s having to explain his brilliant ideas to mortals of lesser intelligence. Come to think of it, the latter may be viewed as justifying the former — at least from the president’s perspective. Thus, his advisers said, keep it simple for the stupids, though not necessarily with that precise wording.

So they did. So simple, in fact, that it was simply wrong. Did they really think no one would notice when they received cancellation notices and their premiums suddenly doubled? The other rule of effective apologies is that they must come from authentic remorse rather than at the tip of a sword. Obama had no choice once caught and it was no longer possible to deny reality. That reality was further enhanced when 16 Senate Democrats, including 15 who are up for re-election in 2014, stormed the White House barricades to express their outrage to the president. Commenting afterward, Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado sent out a release saying he urged the president to extend the enrollment period and ensure that the ACA insurance exchange website is secure. The White House issued its own release, saying the meeting was “to discuss the progress that’s been made” and “hear their input on existing challenges.” Well, that’s one way of putting it. Some consent to regret is better than none, I suppose, but the ultimate test of an apology is whether it results in restored trust. It isn’t at all clear that Obama accomplished this with his exclusive, one-on-one interview. A straight, detailed talk directly to the American people would seem a better bet for the longer run. Detailing the overhaul of a sixth of the economy may not make good TV, but the American people deserve better than “Sorry about the mess.” True contrition swells all hearts.

Ada gets best of Jefferson once more
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer DELPHOS — Ada needed a score with 45 seconds left in the fourth period to beat Jefferson 25-20 in week 9 of the regular season at Stadium Park. Friday night in Region 22 quarterfinal action back at Stadium Park — matching up these same teams — the Bulldogs (seeded seventh — didn’t need quite the same heroics, at least as late as the first time. A 100-yard interception return by Ada senior safety Matt Wilcox with 3:12 left gave the Bulldogs enough cushion to hold off a late Wildcat surge and emerge with a 27-22 victory and move on in the tournament with a 8-3 mark. With Ada leading 22-16 with 7:33 to go in the contest, the Wildcats — behind senior quarterback Austin Jettinghoff (21-of-35 passing, 313 yards; connecting with 7 different receivers) — marched from their own 11 to a 4th-and-4 at the Ada 9 in 11 plays. Jettinghoff was 5-of-9 on the series for 79 yards. However, on the fateful 12th play, he rolled left from the Jefferson senior Ross Thompson tries to slip past Ada defender Matt Wilcox during shotgun but his intended receiver slipped; the aerial bounced off his hands and into the wait- action in the teams’ Region 22 quarterfinal Friday at Stadium Park.

start at their 24. Jettinghoff was 6-of-7 on the drive for all 76 yards. He connected with junior Jordan McCann (4 catches, 67 yards) three times for 30 yards, including the scoring play: a 13-yarder to the junior in the left side of the end zone where he outjumped the defender for the ball. The 2-point pass failed as Jefferson trailed 27-22 with 1:32 left. The attempted onside kick went out of bounds at the Ada 48. Jefferson — with two timeouts left — needed a stop but a 12-yard Wilcox run gave the visitors the game-clinching first down. “We had way too many penalties; we really put ourselves behind the 8-ball with them,” Lindeman continued. “We also had way too many turnovers to beat a team like Ada with the way they can move the ball. We moved the ball well; we just take advantage of the many chances we had.” Jefferson got on board first. After senior Tyler Mox ran back the opening kickoff 75 yards to set up the Wildcats at the Ada 10, the first of those 10 penalties set them back and forced a 25-yard field goal by junior Kurt Wollenhaupt for a 3-0 lead just 2:06 into the contest. Ada moved from its 35 to the Jefferson 16 in five plays but a pair of sacks of Wilcox (by senior Isaac Illig and McCann) and a 4-yard completion to Spencer Archer (5 grabs, 49 yards) ended the drive on downs at the 16. SeeWILDCATS, page 7

It was a generally mediocre week. The best was Guest Picker Larry Heiing, who went 8-4 overall (5-1 college, 3-3 in the National Football League). Since he was the only GP last week, the accumulated total for that personage is 110-80 (56-39, 54-41) I was next-best — if I write so! — at 7-5 (5-1 and 2-4) to trek on to a total mark of 62-46 (33-21, 29-25); regular Bob Weber was also 7-5 (4-2, 3-3) for a record of 69-39 — 39-15 and 30-24. The third regular of this motley crew, Dave Boninsegna, was 4-7 (he didn’t pick one, the coward!) — 3-2, 1-5 — and he now stands at 59-48 (30-23, 29-25). Larry returns as a GP, while Mike Wrasman, a one-time correspondent/sports editor at The Herald, the Times Bulletin and the Fostoria Review Times, is the second GP. Here are the Games: College: LSU at Alabama; Texas at West Virginia; Notre Dame at Pittsburgh; UCLA at Arizona; Vanderbilt at Florida; Penn State at Minnesota. NFL: Carolina at San Francisco; Cincinnati at Baltimore; Houston at Arizona; Miami at Tampa Bay; Detroit at Chicago; St. Louis at Indianapolis. JIM METCALFE COLLEGE: ALABAMA: As an OSU fan, my heart says LSU. The head says Alabama is too good. My cranium wins. TEXAS: Mack Brown’s obituary hasn’t been finalized yet. Longhorns win in Morgantown. NOTRE DAME: Irish should have blown out Navy last week. Methinks they won’t give Panthers the same chance this week. ARIZONA: UCLA starting three true freshmen in their offensive line. Enough written. FLORIDA: This game is in The Swamp. That will be the difference. PENN STATE: Nittany Lions are better than they should be, OSU beatdown notwithstanding. PRO: SAN FRANCISCO: A great matchup. Give 49ers the home edge in Candlestick Point/Park/Promontory/whatever. CINCINNATI: Bengals beat up but have had long week to rest up. Ravens think Flacco can carry them. Good luck. ARIZONA: Houston defense still good. Cardinals just have the desert edge. TAMPA BAY: Buccaneers should have beat Seattle — in Seattle. They get their first win against distracted Dolphins. DETROIT: Jay Cutler will be back for Bears. Too bad the defense remains beat up. INDIANAPOLIS: Andrew Luck and Colts seem to get it done, especially at home. ——DAVE BONINSEGNA College: Alabama: This is a real chance for the Buckeyes to move up if LSU can pull it off but Bama is just too balanced. Texas: Texas is rolling on a 5-game winning streak, while the Mountaineers squeaked by TCU last week to avoid their 4th straight loss. The Texas D is very good and should be able to contain WV. Notre Dame: Notre Dame has won four straight games; Pitt has lost two straight. Notre Dame has eked out 3-point wins in each of the last two seasons against Pitt and should continue the streak again this week. UCLA: UCLA got back on track last week and turns its attention to slowing slow down the nation’s leading rusher. The Bruins stay on track with a win over Arizona. Florida: Despite losing three in a row the Gators should be able to take out Vandy at home on Saturday. Minnesota: Penn State got an OT win last week after being bludgeoned by Ohio State; Minnesota have won three in a row. I like the Gophers to keep the streak alive. NFL: San Francisco: The Carolina Panthers have picked up their play after a rough start. The 49ers are 3-1 at home; I think that gives them the edge on Sunday. Cincinnati: The Bengals took a tough loss in OT last week and this week doesn’t get any better but I am going with my heart and my Bengals. Arizona: With ailing head coach Gary Kubiak out indefinitely and the status of star back Arian Foster uncertain, the visiting Texans look to avoid a seventh straight defeat. I am taking the Cards to keep the Texans’ woes alive. Miami: The battle of Florida not going to be much of a battle; the Buccs are just bad. Miami keeps TB winless despite the turmoil in Miami. Chicago: Chicago can take control of the division; they can and will get that done at home. Indianapolis: The Indianapolis Colts maintained their cushion in the AFC South thanks to a stunning comeback. They might not need such an effort against struggling St. Louis. Indy in a easy win. ——BOB WEBER College: ALABAMA – I hope that LSU can give the Buckeyes an early Christmas present; however, the Crimson Tide and Nick Saban will push forward towards another SEC championship and their third consecutive national championship game. TEXAS – The Longhorns seem to have saved Mack Brown’s job for a while and the Longhorns’ defense — led by Jackson Jeffcoat and Cedric Reed — will make it a long day for the mountaineers. NOTRE DAME – The Panthers, the Steelers – no football team in Pittsburgh will win this weekend. UCLA – The Bruins will need to slow down the very talented Ka’Deem Carey of the Wildcats but Brett Hundley and the Bruins will get the job done. FLORIDA – Even though I think the Gators have more injured players then healthy ones – going with the home team in this one. PENN STATE – Two teams that have been very hard to figure out all year. Nittany Lions’ defense will stop the Gophers’ heavy reliance in the running game. Pro: SAN FRANCISCO - The Panthers have been impressive the last couple of weeks but this game is against the 49ers and the Panthers’ winning streak will come to an end. CINCINNATI – The Bengals just simply have more talent on the offensive side of the ball. ARIZONA – Houston is just too banged up, still dealing with the loss of their head coach on the sidelines for a couple of weeks and has a QB named Case Keenum (wasn’t he the one on radio that played the top 100 songs each week?) LOL (Editor’s Note: That’s funny, Casey Kasem!!!). TAMPA BAY – Going for the huge upset here. Not sure how the Dolphins will play after this past week’s “festivities” in and outside the locker room. CHICAGO – The Bears get back Cutler this week and with Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte, I’m going with the home team in this one. INDIANAPOLIS – Andrew Luck and the Colts prevail easily. ——— LARRY HEIING College: Alabama: Nick Saban has his club playing above everyone else in college football. Tide rolls again in his “big game.” Texas: Texas is rolling is rolling, winning 5 straight games. West Virginia has a physical running game but will be no match for Texas. Longhorns win. Notre Dame: Pittsburgh’s offense ranks 103rd in the nation and won’t be able to outscore the Irish. Notre Dame does have problems when heavily favored. Irish remain lucky and win. Arizona: UCLA has been outscored on the road this year. The game is at Arizona. Arizona wins. Florida: Vanderbilt’s pass defense this year has been boom or bust, allowing 3 TDs in 3 games and 0 TDs in 3. Vandy has a losing streak of over a decade to the Gators. Florida win. Minnesota: The Gophers are headed to their best season in over a decade. Penn State has shown improvement this year but will fall short to Minnesota. Pro: Carolina: San Francisco has won 5 in a row while the Panthers have won 4 in a row, both against teams with losing records. Cam Newton’s recent improvement is the main reason for the win streak for Carolina. Panthers win. Bengals: The Browns beat the defending Super Bowl champs last week. The Bengals will do the same.

Bengals still measure success by showing vs Ravens
By DAVID GINSBURG Associated Press

Chudzinski has Browns believing they can win
By TOM WITHERS Associated Press CLEVELAND — Shortly after he was hired as a rookie NFL coach, Rob Chudzinski looked Browns linebacker D’Dqwell Jackson in the eyes. In laying out plans for his first season, Chudzinski promised Jackson his team would attack — on offense and defense. He vowed the Browns would take chances in the kicking game and not be afraid to go for it on fourth downs. He assured Jackson, one of Cleveland’s most respected veterans and a captain, things were going to change. The Browns, perennial losers, would be different. They would win. As long as they followed his plan. “Everything,” Jackson said, “has held true.” Under Chudzinski’s steadying hand, the Browns, kicked around

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals have long admired and respected the success of the Baltimore Ravens, their accomplished rival in the AFC North. That feeling hasn’t changed, even though the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens bring a 3-5 record into Sunday’s matchup against the first-place Bengals. Cincinnati (6-3) has far outshined Baltimore this season, yet the Bengals still believe the true test of how far they’ve come will be determined by how they fare against the desperate Ravens. “I always use the Baltimore Ravens as a measuring stick,” said Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis, who earned a Super Bowl ring in 2001 as Baltimore’s defensive coordinator. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has thrown four interceptions and only two touchdown passes in four career games against the Ravens. Although the Baltimore defense has changed dramatically since that Super Bowl victory last February, Dalton knows he must be at his best on Sunday at a stadium where Cincinnati hasn’t won since 2009. “The Ravens have been one of the best teams in this division for a while,” Dalton said. “Anytime you can go against teams like they’ve had, you see where you’re at and see what kind of team that you’ve got. We don’t expect anything less this year.” See BENGALS, page 7

and mostly ignored for years, reached the bye week looking and feeling like a different team. At 4-5, they’re one win from matching last season’s total and for the first time since 2007, legions of suffering Cleveland fans are talking about next week’s game in Cincinnati — not next April’s draft. Two weeks ago, the Browns took the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs down to the wire before losing on the road. Last Sunday, they ended an 11-game losing streak to the Baltimore Ravens. Not only did the Browns beat the defending Super Bowl champions but the AFC North’s “kid brother” as Chudzinski called his team, stood up and returned every extra shove and forearm shiver the Ravens threw at them.

OHIO DIVISION OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Welcome to the Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report! INLAND LAKES AND RIVERS These reports are updated April through October. The Lake Erie fishing report is delivered weekly year-round. LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie from March 1 through April 30 is 4 fish per angler with a 15” minimum size limit. … The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. … The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler; minimum size limit is 12”. … The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler with a 14” minimum size limit. Lake-wide Walleye Where: Most walleye being caught have come from around Kelleys Island; from Cedar Point to Lorain within 5 miles of shore; and in or around Cleveland harbor at night. How: Troll using deep-diving crankbaits such as Reef Runners or Deep Husky Jerks, fished in the middle portion of the water column or higher. Yellow perch Where: For some of the biggest perch of the year, try traditional fall spots such as the green buoy off Catawba State Park; Green, Rattlesnake and Ballast islands; Kelleys Island shoal; east of Kelleys Island airport; between Kelleys Island and Lakeside; the Marblehead lighthouse; north of Cedar Point; the south end of the sandbar offshore between Vermilion and Lorain; and just off most of the ports from Huron to Conneaut. How: Perch-spreaders with shiners, near the bottom. Smallmouth bass Where: Bass start moving shallow to feed as water temperatures drop; try fishing rocky areas along both island and mainland shorelines to find feeding smallmouth bass. Areas with gizzard shad, shiners or gobies will be best. How: Tube jigs, drop shots with goby imitations, crankbaits or jerkbaits. Steelheads Where: River conditions deteriorated as rain and gusty winds moved through the area earlier this week. Streams are moderately to highly turbid but river conditions should improve to fishable levels. Steelhead are moving upstream. Spin-fishing anglers have been using spoons, spinners, salmon or trout eggs, or small marabou jigs tipped with maggots under a bobber. Fly anglers have been using streamers, nymphs, wooly buggers and egg patterns. Vermilion River: Fish from the Vermilion boat ramp upstream to Mill Hollow Park. Rocky River: Fish from the Metroparks marina up to the Cedar Point Pools. Cuyahoga River: Fish in Cleveland Harbor up to the State Route 82 dam. Chagrin River: Fish from the soccer fields upstream to Daniels Park. Grand River: Fish from the Fairport and Mentor Headlands piers and the harbor breakwalls up to Hidden Valley Metropark. Arcola Creek: Fish the river mouth, estuary and creek in the metropark. Ashtabula River: Fish from the breakwall, river mouth, and up to Indian Trails Park. Conneaut Creek: Fish from the breakwall and in the river up to the state line. The water temperature is 48 degrees off Toledo and 55 degrees off Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast. Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating. ——— Dressing for cold-weather boating Everyone has stood in front of the closet at one time or another and exclaimed, “I don’t know what I should wear today!” Usually the worst outcome is a good scolding from the “fashion police.” But when preparing for a day of boating, not making the correct choice could be a life-threatening mistake. Any outdoor activity in cool or colder weather conditions presents a risk of hypothermia. That risk is greater while boating because water robs the body’s heat 25 times faster than air of the same temperature. When preparing to boat, clothing choices go a long way towards keeping the experience safe and pleasant. Each person is subject to hypothermia at a different rate. Recognize your body’s thermal capabilities or inadequacies; consider the current air, water and wind-chill temperatures; and dress accordingly. This serves the dual purposes of comfort and safety. Being comfortable adds to any experience. Fabrics that protect against exposure to cold air and water can be broken into two categories: insulating materials and protective materials. “Insulating materials” are fabrics that trap the body’s heat. Layering several garments is not only more effective at retaining the heat but also more comfortable, as items can be added or removed as needed. Types of Insulating Fabrics: A variety of man-made and natural fabrics act as good insulators. Avoid 100 percent cotton garments, as they are most effective at drawing heat away from the body. Start with thin layers of polypropylene close to the skin. Add fabrics that retain heat even when wet, such as wool or synthetic fleece. When boating in any water less than 70 degrees, a neoprene wetsuit should be part of the layer system. Cold water and weather may also require a dry suit, which keeps the body dry with the exception of the head, hands and feet. Types of Protective Layers: A good protection layer prevents the elements from cooling the insulating layers. There are a variety of products available that provide excellent wind and water protection. Parkas, rain suits, paddling gear, and jackets made of nylon, Gore-tex and some of the new microfibers are ideal. The final layer for any cold-weather water activity should be a life jacket. The immediate risk of falling into the water is drowning after becoming disoriented from the shock of the cold water. In addition to providing vital buoyancy, a life jacket also serves as a good insulator. In fact, several styles of coats are Coast-Guard-approved devices that have built in flotation. Remember that each boating outing presents a different combination of weather and water conditions. Choosing your attire wisely helps make any outing a pleasantly memorable experience. Life Jackets: Knowing the facts about the different types of life jackets (also referred to as PFDs — Personal Flotation Devices) can help you decide which are appropriate for you. ODNR strongly encourages all boaters to wear life jackets, whether or not the law requires it. Ohio law REQUIRES life jackets to be worn … while riding a personal watercraft; while waterskiing or being towed on a similar device; for children less than 10 years of age on any vessel less than 18 feet in length. It is particularly important to wear a life jacket in the following situations: When the boater cannot swim or is a weak swimmer; When boating alone; When the water is dangerously cold (the months of October through May in Ohio); During rough water/waves and severe weather conditions; When boating at night; In emergency situations; In swift and fast current situations. Life jackets fall into five different categories, each with different features that serve a variety of needs. Type I - Offshore Life Jacket: Designed for extended survival in large, rough waters where rescue may be slow in coming, this life jacket is required on commercial craft. This type can turn an unconscious person to a vertical or slightly backward position. Unless it’s inflatable, this life jacket tends to be bulky and uncomfortable in warm weather.

Jays, Vikings ready for playoff tussle
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer The St. John’s football team stood at 2-4 after week 6 and knew that for them to play in week 11, they couldn’t afford to lose another game. The Blue Jays did just that, arriving at tonight’s Division VII Region 26 quarterfinal matchup at top-seeded Leipsic with a 6-4 mark (6-2 in the Midwest Athletic Conference). ”No doubt, they are led by their 3-year starting quarterback, Zac Kuhlman; he is a senior and plays like it. You think they would do it mostly through the air but when you see they stats, they are even in both the run and the pass; Schulte explained. “This is a very balanced offense that keeps your defense on its toes. (Jordan) Chamberlin is an excellent back; he doesn’t run with power — at most he’s 160 yards — but he’s more of a scat-back who’s tough to bring down. Kuhlman also has two primary targets outside. Up front, they have good size on both sides of the ball. “Defensively, we have seen them in multiple front, which is always a concern because you have to always be alert. Whatever they are in, they want to be aggressive, get into your backfield and disrupt. That makes it very important that we limit that penetration so we can establish our running game; that is who we are and teams know that. Kuhlman is also a very good player at safety.” The Blue Jay offense, averaging 23.6 points, 216.2 yards rushing and 51 yards passing per game, will rely on tailback Tyler Jettinghoff (186 rushes, 1,040 yards, 20 touchdowns; 6 catches, 55 yards), fullback Luke MacLennan (76 carries, 581 yards, 6; 14 grabs, 243 yards, 2), quarterback Nick Martz (108 totes, 503 yards, 3; 38-of-98 passing, 491 yards, 2 TDs, 9 picks), wideouts Evan Hays (6 grabs, 69 yards), Andy May (5 for 82) and Ben Wrasman (5 for 15; 27-of-32 extra points, 1 field goal; 34 punts, 36.9-yard average) and linemen Spencer Ginter (13 pancake blocks) and Wes Buettner (5). The Blue Jay defense, ceding 23.1 points, 198.7 yards rushing and 152.7 yards passing, is paced by linebackers Cody Looser (71 solo tackles, 42 assists) and Austin Heiing (48 and 27), secondary mates Hays (42 and 28, 2 picks) and Jordan Mohler (44 and 13), linebacker/safety Jettinghoff (29 and 19) and ends MacLennan (35 and 10) and Jason Wittler (19 and 26). “We viewed the last four games as playoff games; it was do-or-die, so we’ve faced ‘playoff’ pressure since week 7. We had two barnMacLennan burners — overtime at Versailles and last week versus Minster — in those four games where we had to battle to the end; if it’s a close game, I don’t see us getting tight because we haven’t,” Schulte added. “Last week, we couldn’t stop Minster the first half but that was a different defensive team we had the second half. We have been a defense that has given up yards but for us (tonight), the second key is not giving up the big play. If they can drive the field on us in 12 plays, so be it; we need to adjust. But we need to make them earn their points.” Leipsic football coach Joe Kirkendall figures his team has grown up over the course of 2013 as his Vikings compiled an 8-2 mark, 6-2 in the Blanchard Valley Conference. “We had a young team at the beginning of this season; we had a lot of new faces that needed to get varsity game experience. We have five sophomores starting and several inexperienced juniors really getting their first varsity taste,” he explained. “Around week 4, against Arlington, we did not play very well and we made some changes in personnel and schemes, particularly on defense. We moved people around; we had defensive linemen moving to linebacker and vice versa, for example, all in an effort to get more speed on the field. At the beginning of the year, we knew the defense was going to Looser have to come a long way because that’s where most of our losses to graduation were. “We made some changes on offense as well, though we had more back there at the beginning. We figured out our limitations scheme-wise, what we do well and what we don’t. That did the trick for us. I felt that put our players in better positions to succeed. Of course, we built the offense around our senior quarterback, Zac Kuhlman, and the rest of the offense has gelled with him.” The Vikings have a symmetrical offense that averages 33.6 points per game: 181.7 yards rushing and passing. Kuhlman leads the way (104-of-174 passing, 1,589 yards, 20 scores, 8 picks) but gets plenty of help from scat-back Jordan Chamberlin (5-8, 155; 1,206 yards rushing — 9.1 yards per carry - 26 TDs), sophomore receiver Nate Brecht (47 grabs, 809 yards, 9 scores) and receiver Dylan Schey (17 grabs, 300 yards, 3) operating behind a veteran and nice-sized offensive line led by 6-5, 265-pound tackle Kyle Berger and 6-6, 271pound center Gavin Cupp. For the Purple and Gold defense, who gives up 20 points, 115.9 yards rushing and 133.1 yards passing an outing, is led by Kuhlman’s six picks out of a team total of 16. As well, Schey (defensive back), Ryan Santana (linebacker) and Paul Gerdeman (line/linebacker) have also been bellwethers for the defense. Kuhlman also averages 31.1 yards per punt. Kirkendall is very familiar with the Blue Jays, having faced them three times in the previous four seasons before tonight’s matchup. Wrasman He knows the particular problems they present his Vikings. “They have a tremendous backfield with the tailback and fullback with a lot of size and speed, then with a quarterback that is very shifty and runs the option well. They have as good a backfield trio as we’ve seen,” Kirkendall added. “They also show a lot of patience as runners. They also are very sound in what they do on both sides of the ball; they don’t beat themselves. “I feel that size-wise, it’s a good matchup. The only difference is, their speed guys are bigger than ours. However, overall, we have some nice speed as well. “I think we can compete with them; we’ve shown in the past that we can. What it comes down to is which players can handle the atmosphere and environment; it will be intense. You would think that both teams have been in plenty of big games but they are still 16 and 17. You have to stay poised and composed; when you do that, you don’t turn the ball over, you don’t commit penalties, you don’t make mistakes.” Kickoff is at 7 p.m. tonight.

(Continued from page 6) The Wildcats — who outgained their foe 432-335, including 313-231 in the air — appeared set to score again, traveling from there to the Ada 15 for a 1st-and-10 in five plays — helped by an Ada penalty (5 for 37). However, a crucial sack of Jettinghoff and fumble recovery by Luke Long-Green gave the ball to Ada at the 28. From there, it took the Purple and Gold seven plays to go in front. From the Delphos 30, Wilcox (22-of28 passing, 231 yards; 5 different receivers) threw down the left hashmark to Archer just behind the defender; he hauled it in at the 10 and finished in the end zone. Jackson Secor added the kick for a 7-3 edge with 57 ticks left in the first period. The Wildcats once more had a promising drive shortcircuited by penalties — two of them for 20 yards — before having to punt away, as did Ada on its next drive. That left Jefferson to open its next possession at the 8. Despite a holding penalty, they managed to drive the distance in nine plays, including a 57-yard connection from Jettinghoff to senior Ross Thompson (8 catches, 146 yards). At the Ada 7, senior Zavier Buzard (17 totes, 101 yards) took a sweep left and refused to go down, fighting out of two tacklers and battling to the end zone. Wollenhaupt made it 10-7 with 3:24 left in the first half. Jefferson had a chance to add more distance as junior Trevor Dudgeon picked off a Wilcox aerial and returned it 25 yards to the Ada 48 but the Red and White could do nothing with it and had to punt, effectively ending the half. Ada opened the second half with a 14-play, 72-yard sojourn. Wilcox was 7-of-8 on the drive for 67 yards, including the finisher: on 4thand-10 at the Delphos 12, he connected with Austin Dumbaugh (5 catches, 48 yards) over the middle for the tally. Wilcox ran in the 2-pointer for a 15-10 edge with 6:31 showing in the third. A crucial play on the drive was a 4th-and-1 at the Ada 37, when upback Long-Green — by mere inches — made the first down to the consternation of the home fans. Jefferson replied — also converting a 4th-and-1 from its 41 on the drive — with a 10-play, 68-yarder. Jettinghoff completed 4-of5 for 53 yards. However, Buzard had the culminator: a 1-yard plunge over right tackle that saw him leap over the pile at the goal line. However, the conversion pass failed, leaving the Red and White up 16-15 with 2:34 showing in the third canto. Ada had the reply: a 10-play, 69-yard sequence, aided by two crucial penalties — for 20 yards — on the same play. However, this time all but one — a pass to Blake Ansley (6 catches, 40 yards; 13 rushes, 46 yards) for eight yards — was a rush. Wilcox (18 totes, 48 yards) did it from the Delphos 4, going straight up the middle from the shotgun. Sophomore Josh Teman picked off the 2-pointer as Ada led 22-16 with 10:52 left. A celebration penalty on the TD forced Ada to kick off from its 25 and Dumbaugh lined it hard at a Delphos front-wall player, hitting him, and the kicker recovered at the Ada 32. However, the visitors could not take advantage and kicked away, setting up the late-game heroics. “We played hard, no question; I’m proud of the effort we had. We had a slow start the first game but not tonight,” Lindeman added. “We have a lot to be proud of: winning the conference, making the playoffs, getting a home game. That all comes from the leadership this group of 11 seniors showed. It’s tough to see it end.” The Red and White finish at 9-2.

Browns (Continued from page 6)
These aren’t the same Browns, who have lost at least 11 games in each of the past five seasons and are on their fourth coach since 2008. These Browns have some swagger and it starts at the top, from the man they call “Chud.” An offensive coordinator in Cleveland and Carolina whose name didn’t surface as a serious candidate until the Browns hired him, Chudzinski has been a revelation in his first stint as a head coach. In the season’s first two months, Chudzinski has effectively and efficiently handled a number of dicey topics, including wide receiver Josh Gordon’s 2-game drug suspension, major injuries, starting three quarterbacks, the stunning trade of running back Trent Richardson and the uncertainty created by the ongoing federal investigation involving Browns owner Jimmy Haslam. “He’s such a good leader,” said Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas. “Chud has found a way in his rookie season to be a good head coach. I think he probably has surpassed even my high expectations.”

With a victory, Baltimore can move within a game of Cincinnati in the loss column. A defeat would all but end the Ravens’ chances of repeating as division champs. “We’re kind of in a corner but you’re always in a corner,” coach John Harbaugh said. “How we handle it will be what’s remembered.” The Ravens are teetering on the edge of a cliff. The Bengals are poised to give them a hefty push. “This game is more important to them,” Cincinnati left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “We realize we have a chance to go in and take control of our division.” Five things to know about the Bengals-Ravens matchup: ATKINS OUT: The Bengals will play their first full game without standout defensive tackle Geno Atkins, who tore his right ACL in a loss to Miami on Oct. 31.

“Geno is definitely the one guy who has stood out for them,” Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said. “It’s a shame that he’s not going to be able to be out there and I’m sure that will affect them in some way. But they’ve got a bunch of guys over there that can get after the quarterback.” Brandon Thompson replaced Atkins against Miami and finished with seven tackles. RICE GROUNDED: The Ravens hope running back Ray Rice returns to form against a team he’s dominated in the past. Rice has only 259 yards rushing this season and is averaging a paltry 2.7 yards per carry. But he averages 5.0 yards per carry in 10 career games against Cincinnati and his eight rushing touchdowns are the most against any team. “I still believe we’ll get the run game going,” Rice said. “We have the guys. We’ve just seen some pretty good fronts and I’ve battled through some stuff (including a hip flexor injury) this year.”

110 Card Of Thanks
THE FAMILY of Deborah L. Fisher wants to thank everyone who lovingly remembered Deborah at her death. The wonderful mass Father made special for her; the beautiful tribute of flowers, cards, food, money and loving thoughts related to all of us. The Do Right Motorcycle Group for their tribute of escorting her to the cemetery. Such an outpouring of love from her family, neighbors, co-workers, so many people whose lives she touched. God bless you all. She is painfully missed. Her legacy is the love and compassion she gave to everyone. God has a new angel. Jerry Fisher Jared Fisher Carol Grothouse

A 2007 Blue Bird bus, owned by Thomas Edison Schools of the Van Wert County Board of DD, and operated by Alice Knueve, 62, of Convoy, was westbound on US 30. A 1996 Buick, driven by Zechariah C. Price, 18, Antwerp, was southbound on SR 49 and failed to yield to the westbound school bus. The Buick was struck in the driver’s door and came to rest in the median. The school bus was disabled partially on the westbound lanes of US 30. Price was wearing his seat belt but due to injuries, he was transported from the scene by Samaritan Helicopter to Parkview Regional Hospital, Fort Wayne, Ind. Knueve was also wearing her seat belt and not injured in the crash. There were two passengers on the bus who were identified as an aide, Tina M. Gaskill, 50, who was transported from the scene to Van Wert Hospital with minor injuries, and a student in a (Continued from page 1)

“Good grades in high school tend to equal scholarship dollars,” Albright affirmed. “For new incoming freshmen, we offer a guaranteed merit scholarship called the Lima Buckeye Distinction Award if they meet specific GPA and ACT/SAT requirements and the dollar amount ranges from $400 - $3,000.” Schools are looking for commitment and impact in the activities a student chooses to spend time in. Some admissions officers are interested in seeing students highly involved in one to three activities or sports over a number of years, rather than involved in many activities. Once a student finds the activities they want to focus on, the next step is to work on becoming a leader or demon-

Visitors can also see the saw cuts in a rear wall hastily made by Air Force crew members who didn’t want the late president’s coffin carried in the cargo hold. They removed two rows of seats for the coffin, which Mrs. Kennedy sat across from on the flight back to Washington. Experiencing history in a personal way by being where it happened goes beyond reading it, Underwood said Friday during a news media tour. “Sometimes I see the looks on the faces (of visitors), and it all comes back to me,” said Underwood, a fourth-grader in 1963. “The story is so visceral.” The federal spending reductions of the sequester had in May halted shuttle bus trips from the museum to the hangar, but museum officials decided to resume the tours on a trimmed schedule with the anniversary approaching. The Boeing jet — built specially in 1962 for presidential use — was retired by the Air Force in 1998, having flown eight presidents starting with Kennedy. Among the other items that were part of the events of late November 1963 on display around the county: — The eternal flame was recently returned to its spot at Kennedy’s gravesite in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia after months of repairs and upgrades. The flame was on a temporary burner in the cemetery visible to tourists during the project.

Answers to Friday’s questions: The first chartered railroad in the United States was Granite Railway, which began running from Quincy, Massachusetts, to the Neponset River — a distance of three miles — on Oct. 7, 1826. It’s principal cargo consisted of blocks of granite for use in building the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown. The Pony Express lasted only 18 months, from April 1860 to October 1861. The completion of the transcontinental telegraph system brought the mail delivery by horse-and-rider relays to an end. Today’s questions: Is it true that Robert E. Lee was offered command on both sides in the Civil War? What makes cats purr? Answers in Monday’s Herald.
