Now, with her benefits cut off and few openings in manufacturing, she dreads what could be next. “I’m going to have to try the welfare thing, I guess,” Blevins says. “I don’t know. I’m lost.” Others plan to switch careers. After being laid off last summer as a high school history teacher, Jada Urquhart enrolled at Ohio State University to become a social worker. Urquhart, 58, has already borrowed against her house, canceled cable-TV and turned down the thermostat despite the winter chill. Without an unemployment check, she plans to max out her credit cards and take on student loans to complete her degree by 2015. “I’ll be 60 when I graduate,” she says. “If I do one-on-one or family counseling, I can work forever.” See AID, page 10

Loss of jobless aid leaves many with bleak options
BY JOSH BOAK and SAM HANANEL Associated Press WASHINGTON — A cutoff of benefits for the long-term unemployed has left more than 1.3 million Americans with a stressful decision: What now? Without their unemployment checks, many will abandon what had been a futile search and will no longer look for a job — an exodus that could dwarf the 347,000 Americans who stopped seeking work in December. Beneficiaries have been required to look for work to receive unemployment checks. Some who lost their benefits say they’ll begin an early and unplanned retirement. Others will pile on debt to pay for school and an eventual second career. Many will likely lean on family, friends and other government programs to get by. They’re people like Stan Osnowitz, a 67-year-old electrician in Baltimore who lost his state unemployment benefits of $430 a week. The money put gasoline in his car to help him look for work. Osnowitz says a continuation of his benefits would have enabled his job search to continue into spring, when construction activity usually increases and more electrical jobs become available. He says he’s sought low-paid work at stores like Lowe’s or Home Depot. But he acknowledges that at his age, the prospect of a minimum-wage job is depressing. “I have two choices,” Osnowitz says. “I can take a job at McDonald’s or something and give up everything I’ve studied and everything I’ve worked for and all the experience that I have. Or I can go to retirement.” Unemployment benefits were extended as a federal emergency move during the 2008 financial crisis at a time of rising unemployment. The benefits have gone to millions who had exhausted their regular state unemployment checks, typically after six months. Last month, the extended-benefits program was allowed to expire, a casualty of deficit-minded lawmakers who argue that the government can’t afford to fund it indefinitely and that unemployment benefits do little to put people back to work. The duration of the federal benefits has varied from state to state up to 47 weeks. As a result, the longterm unemployed in Rhode Island, for example, could receive a total of 73 weeks — 26 weeks of regular benefits, plus 47 weeks from the nowexpired federal program. Outside Cincinnati, Tammy Blevins, 57, fears that welfare is her next step. She was let go as a machine operator at a printing plant in May. Her unemployment check and a small inheritance from her father helped cover her

TOLEDO (AP) — The winter blast that brought snow and dangerous temperatures to much of Ohio will end up costing cities and businesses quite a bit of money. Many are just beginning to add up the price tag for cleaning up the snow and fixing water main breaks and busted pipes. Officials in Toledo estimate the two storms that dumped about 20 inches of snow since the end of December will cost the city up to $1 million. Much of that is in salary and overtime costs for city workers, said Dave Welch, the city’s commissioner of streets, bridges, and harbor. The city hired private plow contractors to help out and also brought in tow-trucks to move vehicles so that plows could clear residential streets. “We haven’t had to tow cars in I don’t know how many years,” Welch said. Water main breaks and pipe bursts were also a problem for cities and businesses. The northern Ohio city of Elyria had at least 14 water main breaks since the beginning

Winter blast costly for Ohio cities, businesses

of the year, including nine on Monday alone. A middle school in nearby North Ridgeville Middle School was closed because of a broken pipe that caused flooding in the boiler room. Water from a broken water pipe soaked about 5,000 books and CDs at a library in Toledo on Wednesday. A restoration company began to salvage some of the items by freeze-drying them before allowing them to dry. Sub-zero temperatures caused water pipes to burst in over 30 buildings at WrightPatterson Air Force Base near Dayton. Repairs are expected to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The city of Columbus had two big messes to clean up. A burst water pipe caused flooding at the city’s police headquarters and a ruptured water pipe flooded downtown streets, buildings and underground parking garages. Estimated cost from the utility work alone was over $34,000, said George Zonders, Columbus public utilities spokesman

Iran, world powers reach deal opening nuke program
BY NASSER KARIMI Associated Press TEHRAN, Iran — Iran has agreed to limit uranium enrichment and to open its nuclear program to daily inspection by international experts starting Jan. 20, setting the clock running on a six-month deadline for a final nuclear agreement, officials said Sunday. In exchange, the Islamic Republic will get a relaxation of the financial sanctions that have been crippling its economy. The announcement that Iran and six world powers had agreed on the plan for implementing an interim agreement came first from Iranian officials and was later confirmed elsewhere. Some U.S. lawmakers have been leery of the agreement, calling for tougher sanctions against Iran, rather than any loosening of controls. Iran’s official IRNA news agency quoted Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi as saying the deal, which sets the terms of a landmark agreement reached in November, would take effect from Jan. 20. The agency said Iran will grant the United Nations’ watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency access to its nuclear facilities and its centrifuge production lines to confirm it is complying with terms of the deal. Araghchi later told state television some $4.2 billion in seized oil revenue would be released under the deal. Senior officials in U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration put the total relief figure at $7 billion. In a statement, President Barack Obama welcomed the deal, saying it “will advance our goal of preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.” “I have no illusions about how hard it will be to achieve this objective, but for the sake of our national security and the peace and security of the world, now is the time to give diplomacy a chance to succeed,” Obama said. Under the November agreement, Iran agreed to limit its uranium enrichment to 5 percent — the grade commonly used to power reactors. The deal also commits Iran to stop producing 20 percent enriched uranium — which is only a technical step away from weapons-grade material — and to neutralize its 20 percent stockpile over the six months. In exchange, economic sanctions Iran faces would be eased for six months. During that time, the so-called P5+1 world powers — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States — would continue negotiations with Iran on a permanent deal. See NUKE, page 10

Associated Press Today is Monday, Jan. 13, the 13th day of 2014. There are 352 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 13, 1864, American songwriter Stephen Foster, who’d written such classics as “Swanee River,” ”Oh! Susanna,” ”Camptown Races,” ”My Old Kentucky Home” and “Beautiful Dreamer,” died in poverty in a New York hospital at age 37. On this date: In 1733, James Oglethorpe and some 120 English colonists arrived at Charleston, S.C., while en route to settle in present-day Georgia. In 1794, President George Washington approved a measure adding two stars and two stripes to the American flag, following the admission of Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. (The number of stripes was later reduced to the original 13.) In 1898, Emile Zola’s famous defense of Capt. Alfred Dreyfus, “J’accuse,” was published in Paris. In 1941, a new law went into effect granting Puerto Ricans U.S. birthright citizenship. Novelist and poet James Joyce died in Zurich, Switzerland, less than a month before his 59th birthday. In 1945, during World War II, Soviet forces began a huge, successful offensive against the Germans in Eastern Europe.

Weaver was named Secretary of Housing and Urban Development by President Lyndon B. Johnson; Weaver became the first black Cabinet member. In 1978, former Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey died in Waverly, Minn., at age 66. In 1982, an Air Florida 737 crashed into Washington, D.C.’s 14th Street Bridge and fell into the Potomac River after taking off during a snowstorm, killing a total of 78 people; four passengers and a flight attendant survived. In 1990, L. Douglas Wilder of Virginia became the nation’s first elected black governor as he took the oath of office in Richmond. In 2012, the Italian luxury liner Costa Concordia ran aground off the Tuscan island of Giglio and flipped onto its side; 32 people were killed. Ten years ago: Hostile fire brought down a U.S. Army Apache attack helicopter in Iraq, but the two crew members escaped injury. A domestic airliner crashed in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, killing all 37 people aboard. Harold Shipman, the British doctor blamed for killing more than 200 mostly elderly patients, was found hanged in his prison cell, an apparent suicide, a day before his 58th birthday. Five years ago: President-elect Barack Obama’s nominee for secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton, vowed during her Senate confirmation hearing to revitalize the mission of diplomacy in U.S. foreign policy. Obama’s choice to run the Treasury Department, Timothy Geithner, disclosed that he had failed to pay $34,000 in taxes from 2001 to 2004. U.S. Marshals apprehended Marcus Schrenker, 38, in North Florida days after the businessman and amateur daredevil pilot apparently tried to fake his own death in a plane crash.

DRY BRANCH, W.Va. (AP) — For Bonnie Wireman, the white plastic bag covering her kitchen faucet is a reminder that she can’t drink the water. The 81-year-old woman placed it there after forgetting several times the tap water was tainted after a coal processing chemical leaked into the area’s water supply. Every time she turned on the water, she quickly stopped and cleaned her hands with peroxide — just to make sure she was safe. The widow of a coal miner, Wireman was angered about the chemical spill that’s deprived 300,000 West Virginians of clean tap water for four days, but doesn’t blame the coal or chemical industries. “I hope this doesn’t hurt coal,” said Wireman, who lives in an area known as Chemical Valley because of all the plants nearby. “Too many West Virginians depend on coal and chemicals. We need those jobs.” And that’s the dilemma for many West Virginians: The industries provide thousands of good paying jobs but also pose risks for the communities surrounding them, such as the chemical spill or coal mine disasters. The current emergency began Thursday after a foaming agent used in coal processing escaped from a Freedom Industries plant in Charleston and seeped into the Elk River. Since then, residents have been ordered not to use tap water for anything but flushing toilets. Gov. Earl Tomblin said Sunday water tests were encouraging, but he didn’t give a timetable for when people might be able to use water again. “The numbers look good. They are very encouraging,” Tomblin said. Schools, restaurants and other businesses were to close today, but the governor said all state offices would be open. Maj. Gen. James Hoyer, of the West Virginia National Guard, said testing near the water treatment facility has consistently been below one part per million for 24 hours, a key step officials needed before they can lift the ban. Some tests have shown the chemical was not present at all in water coming in and out of the plant.

Troubled St. Marys lake to offer extended discounts
ST. MARYS (AP) — Outdoor enthusiasts can get extended discounts at Ohio’s largest inland lake beginning this spring. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says the discounts at Grand Lake St. Marys in western Ohio include 25 percent off camping and dock fees. The special rates will be in effect from April 1 until Oct. 31, but don’t include certain periods, including days around the Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day holidays. The state has worked to clean up the lake since 2010 when a toxic algae bloom forced environmental officials to urge visitors not to touch the water or eat fish caught there. The incident damaged the region’s tourism business while highlighting problems caused by phosphorous runoff from farms.

Red Cross needs donations 29% of charter schools after weather cancels drives closed since 1997
Information submitted TOLEDO — As severe winter weather begins to subside, the American Red Cross asks all eligible blood and platelet donors to help offset a weather-related shortfall in donations. Approximately 300 blood drives across 25 states were canceled across the U.S. due to snow and extreme cold. The blood drive cancellations resulted in a shortfall of nearly 8, 800 blood and platelet donations since Jan. 2. In Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan, severe winter weather forced the cancellation of 14 Red Cross blood drives, resulting about 364 fewer than expected blood and platelet donations over the past week. “It’s the blood products already on the shelves that help save lives when severe weather hits,” said Tiffany Gradel, Communications & Marketing Manager of the Red Cross Western Lake Erie Blood Services Region. “Thanks to generous Red Cross blood and platelet donors, blood products were available for patients who still needed transfusions despite the weather. Now we invite those previously ‘frozen out’ from giving blood or platelets to come in soon.” Platelet donors, as well as blood donors with the most in-demand blood types — O positive and negative, A negative and B negative — are urgently needed to give blood in the days and weeks ahead to offset the shortfall. Platelets, a key clotting component of blood often needed by cancer patients, must be transfused within five days of donation, so donations are constantly needed. Red blood cells, the oxygen carrying component of blood, are the most widely transfused blood product and must be transfused within 42 days.


Mobile polling place found on Licking County property
GRANVILLE (AP) — It’s not much to look at — a rusted, dented tin shack with an old bed frame and a couple of bales of straw inside on a 14-acre property north of this Licking County village. But decades ago, this was a building of honor, as citizens exercised their right as Americans within those tin walls. They came to this building to vote their leaders into office, from the president of the United States to the township trustee. Or, more accurately, the building came to them. The building resting on Bill Ricciardo’s property is a mobile polling place, used near the turn of the 20th century to help make voting easier for people who lived in rural areas. Ricciardo inherited it when he bought the property in 1986. “We were told it was the election building” by the former owner “and never gave it any more thought,” Ricciardo said. “We’ve always used it for storage.” But when his daughter, Ginger, recently noticed a picture of a building that looked like their election building while thumbing through a small paperback book of historical photos of Licking County, the family’s interest was piqued. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much more information to be found. “I Googled until I went blind, but to no avail,” Ricciardo said. During a Christmas visit, a friend suggested that he call Licking County Commissioner Doug Smith, a history buff. “There’s a restored one behind the Harding presidential home in Marion,” Smith said. “At one time, they were ubiquitous in Ohio. Every county had a supply of them. They were born of the desire to bring voting to the multitudes.” Ricciardo’s building is typical — 18 feet long and 10 feet wide, with a 10-foot ceiling and vented for a woodburning stove. It has tin walls and roof; a planked floor; a handful of glass windows that can be shuttered; and two doors, allowing voters to pass through the small building without bumping into each other. Smith said the build-

ings fell out of use around World War II. Sharon Hendren of Johnstown recalls that her grandfather bought old election buildings in Columbus in the 1950s and hauled them back to Licking County. She said he used at least three in the construction of area homes. She said there’s a house on Columbia Road in Pataskala — where both she and her grandfather Earl Swinning lived — that he built by putting two election buildings end-to-end as a frame and then erecting the house around them. She also remembers him using one as a bathroom addition to another home. “He’d bring in three or four and park them in the field beside our house,” Hendren said. “We’d play in them when we were kids. We’d be black when we’d come out, they were so dirty from the old wood stove.” She also remembers a couple of families in a poorer area near Licking Heights, called Blanche Addition, who had lived in discarded election buildings. “It would be tough living,” Hendren said. Ricciardo isn’t sure what will become of his election building. “My first inclination, after learning a little more, was to restore it,” he said. “But then I thought, ‘Who’s going to see it out here?’ “I think it’s meant to be somewhere. If not, it will be a curiosity to rot here. I’m kind of a karma guy. It’s going to work itself out one way or another.”

COLUMBUS (AP) — Twenty-nine percent of Ohio’s charter schools have closed dating back to 1997, including 17 schools last year in Columbus Publicly funded charter schools that are often privately run became legal in Ohio in 1997, The Columbus Dispatch reports. About 75 of the 400 charter schools currently operating in the state are in Columbus, where nine of the 17 schools that closed in 2013 lasted only months. Some of the nine schools closed because of money problems, while some closed due to health and safety troubles including a lack of nutritious lunches for students and unsanitary buildings, the newspaper reported. Some were closed by their sponsors. Advocates and critics of charter schools say one way to avoid closings is to do a better job deciding who should be allowed to open. Nonprofit groups, universities, school districts and educational service centers can act as sponsors or authorizers for charter schools, deciding which can open and whether they should close. “We don’t have any approval or denial power,” said John Charlton, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Education.. There also can be great cost to children and to taxpayers when schools close, the newspaper reported. When the nine schools closed in Columbus last year, more than 250 students had to find new schools. The state spent more than $1.6 million in taxpayer money to keep the nine schools open only from August through October or November “A school goes belly up, and the public is out the money, and the kids’ educational programming has been harmed,” said William L. Phillis, the executive director of the Ohio Coalition for Equity and Adequacy of School Funding and a frequent critic of charters. Since the state auditor began auditing charter-school finances in 2000, 110 schools have been found to have misspent a total of $22.6 million, and many of those have closed. The Ohio attorney general often sues to recover withholding taxes or retirement payments, but there are usually few assets remaining when a school closes. “Charter-school failures erode the public’s confidence in our movement as a whole,” said Andrew Boy, who runs the two Columbus Collegiate Academy schools, which have attracted attention for their success with middleschool students. “All considered, I despise sponsors who continually let well-meaning individuals open schools who have no business doing so,” Boy said.

Ohio, Indiana push for place in drone industry

CINCINNATI (AP) — Ohio and Indiana will operate their own test ranges for unmanned aircraft and seek ways of promoting more research and development to attract dronerelated businesses after losing in their joint bid for a coveted FAA test site. The states sought one of six Federal Aviation Administration drone test sites being set up as the agency develops a plan to safely integrate commercial drones into U.S. airspace. An industry-commissioned study predicted drones could produce thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic impact after that integration. And Ohio and Indiana want a share in any economic boom. Officials say they are seeking more ways of individually and jointly promoting their shared region as a location where unmanned aircraft businesses can thrive.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Lone Survivor” triumphed at the weekend box office. The patriotic Navy SEAL drama starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster smashed expectations to earn $38.5 million domestically in its first weekend in wide release, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Universal film directed by “Friday Night Lights” and “Battleship” filmmaker Peter Berg is based on Marcus Luttrell’s memoir about a dangerous mission his Navy SEAL team embarked on in Afghanistan in 2005. “We’re thrilled for us, the filmmakers and Marcus, who — as brave as a man as he is — continues to be brave in telling this true story,” said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal. “It’s an amazing result. What’s most gratifying about this is that it’s been endorsed by every quadrant of the movie-going audience: young, old, male, female.” Rocco said “Lone Survivor” performed particularly well in middle America. The movie’s launch marks the second biggest opening for a film in January, after the $40.1 million debut of the monster movie “Cloverfield” in 2008. “We had an inkling it’d do well when it opened in limited release in December, but projections had it coming in between $17 million to $28 million,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. “Nothing had it coming close to $40 million.” In its eighth weekend, Disney’s icy animated tale “Frozen” stayed cool in the No. 2 spot, earning $15 million and bringing its domestic total to $317 million, passing Disney Animation’s $312 million record set by “The Lion King” in 1994. “Frozen” also topped the international box office with $27.8 million from 50 international mar-

kets. Paramount’s controversial “The Wolf of Wall Street” scored No. 3 in its third weekend, earning $9 million and boosting its total domestic haul to $78.6 million. The hedonistic tycoon drama directed by Martin Scorsese stars Leonardo DiCaprio as reckless stock broker Jordan Belfort. The film earned an additional $10 million from 17 international territories. Lionsgate’s “The Legend of Hercules,” the weekend’s only other major release, tied Sony’s “American Hustle” for the No. 4 position, with both films earning $8.6 million, according to studio estimates. “American Hustle,” whose domestic total now stands at $101.5 million, also earned an extra $5.2 million this weekend from four international territories. The conartist caper leads the nominees at Sunday’s Golden Globes alongside “12 Years a Slave” with seven nods each. Several other awards contenders expanded into wide release this weekend ahead of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s glitzy ceremony, including the Weinstein Co.’s “August: Osage County” at No. 6 with $7.3 million, Warner Bros.’ “Her” at No. 10 with $5.4 million and CBS Films’ “Inside Llewyn Davis” at No. 14 with $1.9 million. Overseas, Universal’s animated sequel “Despicable Me 2” earned $13.8 million alone in China, where it opened this weekend seven months after its initial release. The original animated film featuring the voice of Steve Carrell was not released in China. ——— Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, latest international num-

bers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released today: 1. “Lone Survivor,” $38.5 million ($750,000 international). 2. “Frozen,” $15 million ($27.8 million international). 3. “The Wolf of Wall Street,” $9 million ($10 million international). 4. “The Legend of Hercules,” $8.6 million ($650,000 international).

Chili Peppers to join Bruno Mars at Super Bowl
NEW YORK (AP) — Bruno Mars will have help from the Red Hot Chili Peppers when he performs at the Super Bowl next month. Mars announced Saturday that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will join him as part of his halftime show. Super Bowl halftime performers often have collaborators. Last year, Beyonce had Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams from her Destiny’s Child days join her onstage, and two years ago Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. joined Madonna for her halftime show. Mars was named Billboard’s 2013 artist of the year. His hits include the No. 1 song “When I Was Your Man” and his Grammynominated sophomore album, “Unorthodox Jukebox,” has sold almost 2 million copies.

Titan defense stymies Lady Jays
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Ottawa-Glandorf’s defense make things miserable for St. John’s Saturday afternoon, forcing 30 turnovers and poor shooting in a 55-36 non-league girls basketball triumph at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium. The Lady Titans (10-2) harassed the Lady Blue Jays (4-8) into shooting 10-of-31 from the floor (2-of-8 long range) for 32.3 percent. “They are a quick, athletic — whatever you want to term them — basketball team. They force you to do things faster than you are comfortable doing,” St. John’s mentor Dan J. Grothouse observed. “Their man-to-man pressure in particular gave us fits. Once you lose your confidence — which we did a couple of times — you are looking to just make too quick a pass or hurry too much on a shot. What hurt us is we couldn’t beat them off the dribble, either.” That is just what Titan coach Troy Yant wants. “We build a lot from our defense and when we are aggressive in our man, like today, that gets out offense rolling,” Yant said. “When we can create turnovers like today consistently, we’re at our best. I felt our intensity was really good in the first and third quarters and that’s when we did our most damage.” The Titans were led in scoring by the tandem of senior Kristen Miller with 21 points, along with seven steals, four boards and four assists, backed by junior Elissa Ellerbrock with 12. Sophomore Sydney Fischbach led the home team with nine points before fouling out late and freshman Madilynn Schulte (4 boards, 3 assists) added seven. The Lady Titans started off with a full-court man-to-man pressure defense that forced nine errors in the first period and got them jumpstarted. The Titans turned it over five times themselves (19 for the afternoon) but when they got shots, they were a hot 7-of-11 (20of-43 for the game, 2-of 7 triples, for 46.5%). Miller struck for six points and five other Titans scored a deuce in the period. The Jays led briefly at 4-2 on two Fischbach freebies at 5:21 but then they went scoreless for the next 3:54. O-G ran off the next 12 in a row before junior Halie Benavidez (6 markers) — a junior varsity player subbing for injured senior Brooke Zuber — notched two at the line at 1:27. Ellerbrock netted a turnaround in the paint at 25 ticks and Miller two free tosses with .9 on the clock for a 16-6 O-G edge. The Jays were 1-of-8 in the period. The Titans altered their defensive game plan in the second period, going to a 1-2-2 3/4-court press and half-court zone. Despite Miller’s seven markers, those were the only points the visitors dropped the second period. On the other end, though the Jays turned it over 10 times, they hit 3-of-5 from the field and 5-of-7 from the stripe, with Schulte (also recently promoted from the JV) popping off the bench for five markers and Fischbach adding four. A 3-ball by Miller at the 5-minute mark built O-G’s biggest lead to date at 21-8 before the Jays slowly battled back to within 21-18 on 1-of-2 charity tosses by freshman Jessica Geise (5 rebounds) with 19.2 ticks on the clock. However, Miller took a mid-court steal to the glass that beat the horn, the visitors led 23-18. Yant returned the Titans to their fullcourt man-to-man ways and did it ever work: they forced nine turnovers on the Jays’ first nine possessions and converted them into points — seven by Miller — on 7-of-8 shooting, plus two free tosses, to erect a 40-18 advantage on two Ellerbrock singles at 3:20. Geise finally hit a free toss at 2:57 to break the killer drought and the hosts used 4-of-6 free throws (14-of-19 overall for 73.7%), plus a basket by Fischbach, to get as near as 42-24 on two Benavidez charity tosses at 1:32. However, Ellerbrock beat the Jays down the floor for a lefty layin at 18 ticks to make it a 44-24 spread after 24 minutes of action. See TITANS, page 7



Jefferson’s Tanner Vermule pinned Joshua Nelson of Springfield Shawnee during the Lima Senior Spartan Wrestling Invitational Saturday to collect his 100th career win. (Delphos Herald/Larry Heiing)

Foust wins Spartan Invite; Vermule collects 100th win
By LARRY HEIING DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com LIMA — Jefferson’s Tyler Foust was the only local champion at the Lima Senior Spartan Wrestling Invitational held Saturday at Lima Senior High School. Besides Jefferson, 17 teams, including St. John’s, Spencerville and Lincolnview, competed for the title which was won by Tipp City Tippecanoe. Foust was the number four seed in the 182-pound bracket and won the title by defeating Luke Lemmerman of St. Marys Memorial with a pin in the championship match. En route, he pinned the number one seed, Brandon Arndst of Tippecanoe in the fifth round. He also had a tech fall victory — 19-2 — over Jacob Fike of Lima Senior. Other locals that placed in that bracket were Doug Hicks of Lincolnview in fourth after being pinned by Arndst. Spencerville’s Caleb Sutherland finished in seventh when he pinned Harrison Fink of Rossford in 3:37. Another Jefferson grappler had a big day when Tanner Vermule pinned Springfield Shawnee’s Joshua Nelson in the first round to collect his 100th career victory. “Tanner getting his 100th win close to home is exciting,” said his head coach, Mike Wilson. “He works hard and is really focused this year — he deserves it.” Vermule recorded pins over Cameron Bowman of St. Marys and Devin Meyer of Cory-Rawson in the middle rounds, then dropped a 5-2 decision to the number one seed, Gabe Callicoat, but pinned Spencerville’s Derrick Smith to take home the runner-up title. The only other placer in the 145-pound bracket was freshman Brett Vonderwell from St. John’s in fourth place. St. John’s had two wrestlers place as runner-ups with Austin Martin and Wes Buettner. Martin was pinned by Tippecanoe’s Jack Peura in the 152-pound championship, while Buettner dropped a tough 5-3 match to another Tippecanoe wrestler, Austin Robbins, at 170 pounds. Freshman Hunter Binkley of Jefferson finished in eighth place in the 152 bracket, joined by teammate Aaron Parkins in eighth at 170. In the featherweight 106-pounders, Jefferson’s David Grant finished in fourth place after an 8-6 loss to Tanner Krotzer of Rossford. Local wrestlers in the next weight class at 113 pounds had a good showing with Lincolnview’s Alex Rodriquez finishing in fourth. Spencerville’s Brandon Patterson placed sixth and St. John’s freshman Avery Martin finished seventh. Spencerville’s Peyton Ford placed eighth at 120 pounds. The 126-pound weight class had only two local placers with Cody Dickerson of Spencerville in third place and Evyn Pohlman of St. John’s in eighth. Spencerville had back-toback runner-ups in the next two weight classes. Senior Trevor Bockey had a good tournament, finishing in second place to the number one seed at 132 pounds, Taylor Deatrick of Paulding. Fellow Bearcat Cole Bellows fell to Springfield’s Jeff Smiddy in the 138-pound championship match. St. John’s also placed two wrestlers in these weight classes with Evan Mohler taking eighth at 132 pounds. Justin Siefker defeated Austin Brown of Cory-Rawson 4-1 to finish third in the 138 bracket. Other local placers were St. John’s Alex Haunhorst in fourth at 160 and Spencer Wannemacker of Jefferson taking eighth at 195. Bearcat Wyatt Krouskop pinned Chance Hicks of St. Marys to place third at 220 pounds and St. John’s Austin Schulte also recorded a pin to place fifth. Finally at 285 pounds, Spencerville’s Logan Vandemark placed fourth and Jefferson’s Dustin McConnahea finished fifth. In the team standings, Tippecanoe took home the title with 236.5 points, edging out Woodmore’s 233. Spencerville had the best local team finish, coming in fifth place with 199 points. Bearcat head coach Zac Clum said “we started out hot in the opening rounds to be in second place heading into the finals. Then we lost some matches that I thought we should have won which hurt our team standings but I’m happy with our finish.” St. John’s ended the day in seventh place as a team. “We brought 10 wrestlers the tournament and placed nine,” said coach Derek Sterling. “Our only wrestler that didn’t place was senior Nate Schroeder, who suffered a knee injury.” Jefferson placed 10th as a team with 142 points and Lincolnview rounded out the field in 17th. *******

Wildcats come up short versus Raiders
By KEVIN WANNEMACHER DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com HAVILAND – Delphos Jefferson made several runs at Wayne Trace in non-league boys basketball action Saturday night. The Wildcats trailed by double digits three different times in the contest but would work themselves back into the game each time. However, Wayne Trace came up with key plays each time and the Raiders responded to post a 63-55 victory over the visiting Wildcats. Although his team came up short, Jefferson head coach Marc Smith was pleased with the effort of his Wildcats, who fall to 7-5. “I am very pleased with the effort tonight,” noted Smith. “I thought our guys played extremely hard and we did a lot of very positive things.” Leading 8-6 late in the first quarter, the Raiders added a basket by David Sinn and a trey from Corbin Linder to take a 13-6 advantage after eight minutes of action. The Raiders pushed the lead to 21-10 on a Jake Arend basket but the Wildcats quickly responded. A trey from Ross Thompson followed by a Thompson bucket on the next Wildcat possession trimmed the Raider lead to 21-15. “You have to give them a lot of credit,” stated Wayne Trace head coach Jim Linder. “They came back at us all night long and they never gave up.” Baskets from Devin Wenzlick and Arend, sandwiched around a Corbin Linder 3-pointer, pushed the Raider advantage to 28-15. Wayne Trace went on to post a 30-19 lead at the intermission. Jefferson started quickly out of the gates in the second half, opening the third quarter with two Austin Jettinghoff 3-pointers and Nick Fitch added a basket to slice the Wildcat deficit to 30-27. “We got the start we wanted to the second half,” Smith stated. “But they were able to answer any run we made and that is what good teams do. They are a very good basketball team.” Linder hit his third trey of the night to stop the Wildcat run and Ethan Linder followed with a 3-point play on the next Raider possession to put Wayne Trace on top 36-27. Trey Smith quickly got the Wildcats back within 38-33, hitting an old-fashioned three-point play and a trey on each side of an Ethan Linder bucket. Wayne Trace, though, ended the quarter with treys by Colby Speice and Corbin Linder for a 44-33 lead entering the final stanza. “Colby came up with a big shot for us there to stop their run,” stated the Raider head coach. “We are getting more people involved and getting different kids to hit big shots.” Delphos Jefferson would make one more run in the contest. With the Raiders in front 48-39, buckets by Thompson and Fitch along with a Smith trey trimmed the Wildcat deficit to 50-46 at the 3:26 mark. Wayne Trace, though, answered as the Raiders kept alive a missed shot and it eventually led to a Corbin Linder trey to put the red, white and blue in front 53-46. After a Wildcat miss, Linder again got free for a long-distance trey as Wayne Trace extended the advantage to 56-46. See WILDCATS, page 7

Jays take measure of Indians
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com FORT SHAWNEE — Once the St. John’s boys cagers took the lead at 2:39 of the second period Saturday night, they never gave it back as the Blue Jays subdued homestanding Shawnee 63-49 in nonleague activity inside Lappin Gymnasium. Leading the way for the Jays (7-1) was junior Andy Grothouse with 18 markers (5 boards, 3 assists), backed by 16 counters by senior Eric Clark (5 assists, 4 boards) and nine each by juniors Evan Hays and Alex Odenweller. They led a 22-of-39 shooting performance, 6-of-14 long range, for 56.4 percent. On behalf of the Indians, Jaden O’Neal sprung for 17 (3 treys) and Trey Brock added 14. “Double weekends are tough, especially when both games are on the road. We had a tough one last night and you’re always worried about the lack of preparation for the Saturday game,” St. John’s coach Aaron Elwer explained. “Shawnee has a lot of athletes that can make individual moves and score but they also have a number of players that can spot up and shoot. We gave up a little more penetration than normal but we did a nice job defensively not letting those guys go wild.” Shawnee led 16-14 at the end of the first period and in the first 5:21 of the second stanza, there were two lead changes and three ties. When Grothouse went backdoor for a layin — off a feed from junior Tyler Conley (7 points, 10 boards) — at 2:39, the Jays took the lead for good at 24-22. That jump-started a closing 11-2 spurt, capped by a catch-and-shot putback by Grothouse (8 markers in the period) at the horn, to take a 33-24 edge. In the third canto, the Jays’ lead never fell below seven — 42-35 on a transition basket by Angelo Fox at 2:12 — and was as high as 14 on a triple by Odenweller midway through the stanza. When Hays finished off his 4-point stanza with a pair of free tosses at 39 seconds, the Jays led 44-35. The fourth period was more of the same: Shawnee tried to extend its pressure and turn the Jays over but they only managed to do it three times (9 overall versus 6 of their own). The Jays ran their offense almost to perfection — hitting 6-of-7 shots behind seven markers from Clark and six by Grothouse. They added 6-of-9 at the line (13-of-19 overall for 68.4%) as their lead never dropped below nine early on and reached as high as 18 — 59-41 on a Clark deuce. As Clark ended, so he started. He got rolling early, scoring nine points in the opening stanza, but the sophomore O’Neal was even better, netting 11 markers (2 treys). The Jays led 14-8 on an Odenweller trifecta at the 3-minute mark but the Indians ran off eight straight, capped by a Fox 3-ball from the left wing at 31 ticks, for a 16-14 edge. “We had a pretty good start. We’ve had good starts except last night (at Minster),” Elwer added. “We also have a lot of weapons; you need more than one or two guys to score and we’ve gotten good contributions all season from a number of players. As we gain confidence and experience, you can see us getting better.” St. John’s ended up with 31 caroms (8 offensive) as Clark and Hays had four each; and nine fouls. Shawnee canned 19-of-50 fielders (4-of22 from 3-land) for 38 percent and 7-of-7 free throws (100%), adding 20 boards (8 offensive) — Trey Brock led with four — and 20 fouls.

Kaepernick lifts 49ers over Panthers 23-10
By STEVE REED Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Colin Kaepernick raced into the end zone, then pretended to rip open his shirt with both hands imitating Cam Newton’s Superman touchdown celebration. Three years of frustration had come to a head. “Just a little shoutout,” Kaepernick said. To whom? “I think you know the answer,” Kaepernick replied with a grin. Kaepernick added he “will never forget” that he was selected in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft, 35 spots behind Newton, the Heisman Trophy winner and the top pick that season. On Sunday, he outplayed his quarterback counterpart, throwing one touchdown pass and running for another score as the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Carolina Panthers 23-10 to advance

Manning, Broncos top Chargers, make AFC title game
By ARNIE STAPLETON Associated Press DENVER — Peyton Manning welcomed Wes Welker back into the lineup with a touchdown toss and the Denver Broncos narrowly avoided a repeat of their playoff slip from last year, advancing to the AFC championship game with a 24-17 win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. The Broncos (14-3) took a 17-0 lead into the fourth quarter. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers then capitalized on an injury to cornerback Chris Harris Jr. to stage a comeback reminiscent of Baltimore’s shocking win at Denver exactly a year earlier. This time, however, Manning rescued the Broncos from the brink of another crushing collapse and sent them into the title game for the first time in eight seasons. They’ll host the New England Patriots (13-4) on Sunday. Get ready for Brady vs. Manning once more. In the most recent matchup of QBs with Hall-of-Fame credentials, Tom Brady and the Patriots rallied past Manning and the visiting Broncos 34-31 in overtime on Nov. 24. “It’s the Broncos versus the Patriots and certainly Tom and I have played against each other a lot,” Manning said after beating San Diego. “But when you get to the AFC championship, it’s about two good teams that have been through a lot to get there.” Manning ended a personal 3-game postseason skid in winning for the first time since leading Indianapolis over the Jets 30-17 in the AFC championManning ship game on Jan. 24, 2010. Manning completed 25-of-36 passes for 230 yards and two TDs, numbers that weren’t quite up to the standards he set during a record-breaking regular season when he established new benchmarks with 55 TD throws and 5,447 yards through the air. But it was windy and the Broncos were intent on establishing the run and controlling the clock. San Diego had Manning and his high-octane offense cooling their cleats on the sideline for more than 38 minutes in both of their meetings during the regular season, when both teams won on the road. Denver had the ball for 35 minutes, 27 seconds in this game, to San Diego’s 24:33.

Yant backed off the fullcourt pressure in the fourth and began to substitute his deeper bench more as the Lady Titans put seven players in the scoring column. Sophomore Lexie Hays (6 markers) scored five for the hosts as the Titans matched their biggest lead at 22 before settling on the final 19-point margin. “There were moments that when we calmed down and took more time, especially in the second period, we did some nice things,” Grothouse added. “Unfortunately for us, we did it very inconsistently; that is one area we have been trying to shore up since the start of the season. There were other times when we simply didn’t battle like we needed to and those were when they got on their runs.” Ottawa-Glandorf concluded shooting 13-of-21 from the line (61.9%); with 26 caroms (11 offensive) as junior Anna Bellman (3 steals) nabbed eight; and 15 fouls. “We’ve been working on

the zone defense and wanted to see how it would work in a game; we really haven’t practiced it that much,” Yant added. “After all, I think you need a few tools in the tool box over the course of a long season. It was OK but we asked the girls do to different things they aren’t used to and we got out of rhythm, then we forced some things that aren’t germane to our offense. At halftime, we went back to the man.” St. John’s totaled 25 rebounds 8 offensive) as Hays added four; and 17 fouls. The Titan junior varsity won 37-27, led by 12 from sophomore Lauren Buddelmeyer.

That was the difference in the game tonight.” Jefferson did get within 58-53 with 46 seconds on the clock but Speice sealed the Raider win at the free-throw line, hitting 6-of-6 attempts down the stretch for the victory. “We’ve got areas to get better at but we are improving,” said the Raiders’ Jim Linder. “The schedule is very busy again next week and we have to be ready to play a very good Paulding team at their place on Tuesday.” Corbin Linder led all scorers with 26 points in the contest, including eight treys. Freshman brother Ethan Linder chipped in 11 markers while Speice added nine points, four assists and three steals. Wenzlick posted six markers and eight rebounds for Wayne Trace, which moves to 6-1. Trey Smith paced the Wildcats with 22 points while Jettinghoff chipped in 18 and Thompson added 11. Smith had eight boards, while Fitch grabbed five. Jace Stockwell, Jettinghoff and Thompson posted three boards apiece. Stockwell and Thompson both dished out four assists with Smith getting four steals. Wayne Trace won the battle of the boards 28-24

and committed fewer turnovers, 12-16. In the junior varsity game, Luke Miller scored 11 points and Alec Vest chipped in 10 to lead the Raiders to a 48-27 win over the Wildcats. Rylen Asher and Cole Shepherd each chipped in eight markers for the red, white and blue, which moves to 6-1 on the season. Grant Wallace had 10 points for the Wildcats, who fall to 8-4. Josh Teman recorded eight markers. Wayne Trace starts a stretch of three games in five days tonight as the Raiders visit Paulding in a non-league battle. Jefferson hosts Kalida in a non-league battle on Friday before the Wildcats make the trek to Pandora Gilboa on Saturday.

by Gary Clothier Q: Charlie Chaplin appeared in nearly 100 films. Many years ago I read a mini-biography of him, and it made reference to the movie "The Sea Gull." I have since looked for the film, and I can't find it. As a matter of fact, the film is not listed in his filmography. Am I remembering wrong? -T.F., Norman, Okla. A: Your memory is just fine. "Sea Gulls" -the working title for "A Woman of the Sea" -was produced by Charlie Chaplin and filmed at the Chaplin Studios in 1926. It was the only time Chaplin produced a film that he neither starred in nor directed. The movie was directed by Josef Von Sternberg and starred Edna Purviance in her final film role in America. For reasons that were never made clear, the film was not released. Some say the film was never screened because Chaplin was dismayed by the poor performance of Purviance. Under pressure from the IRS, the film was burned in 1933 before a number of witnesses. Q: Was the actor Burl Ives in a movie about a racehorse? How many movies was he in? When was his death? -- R.G., North Windham, Conn. A: Burl Ives played a character named Gus in the 1948 movie "Green Grass of Wyoming." The movie is about a wild stallion named Thunderhead who, in the middle of the night,

entices mares from local ranches to join his freespirited life. The movie is the third in the "Flicka" series, which includes "My Friend Flicka" and "Thunderhead: Son of Flicka." Ives appeared in more than 50 movies, TV movies and TV series in his career. He was a noted actor, writer and singer. He was born June 19, 1909, in Illinois; he died in Anacortes, Wash., on April 14, 1995, at age 85. Q: I have a football question for you: Why is the quarterback sweep called a "bootleg"? -B.G., Salem, Ohio A: In the quarterback sweep, the quarterback fakes a handoff to the running back and continues running with the ball opposite from where the running back was headed. The term "bootleg" comes from the fact that in order to pull off the fake, the quarterback must hide the ball from the defense by placing the ball against his thigh, similar to the way bootleggers would hide whiskey in their trousers during Prohibition. Frankie Albert, an All-American quarterback at Stanford University, is given credit for inventing the play in 1940. Albert went on to play and coach for the San Francisco 49ers.

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You may be anxious to make a financial move, but proceed with caution. Revisit what’s happened in the past and make adjustments to avoid making the same mistake twice.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -You’ll be tempted by an offer that may not be legitimate or that is based on hearsay rather than facts. Step back before you suffer a loss. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Relationships, partnerships and mingling with people who share your interests and concerns will bring about unusual and exciting opportunities. Love is on the line, and romance will seal the deal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Watch your back today, especially when dealing with financial, legal or medical issues. Take some time to confabulate with trusted allies before taking a chance on someone or something you know too little about. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your suggestions will be well-received. Do your best to help out, but don’t let anyone take you for granted. Friendships will grow, and people from your past will reappear. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Stay calm and rely on your knowledge and ability to deliver information with intelligence and passion. Don’t allow anger or emotional tension to come between you and your goals. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Enjoy the moment, take part in unique activities and develop relationships that will be of use to you in the future. Alterations to your living arrangements will be comforting. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Keep an eye on your personal papers and concerns. Be prepared to make a sudden and unexpected move should anyone stand between you and your goals. Protect your assets.


TUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 2014 The partnerships you cherish should take top priority this year. Arguments will erupt if you aren’t willing to compromise and work alongside the people you care about. Sticking close to home and pursuing education and self-improvement will bring the highest returns. Love will conquer all. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you offer friends and family will bring you greater love, happiness and stability. Your skills and business sense will garner additional popularity and respect. Success is within reach. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- The more you can pack into your day, the better you will feel. Speak up and share your plans. There is an increase in your earning potential due to an unexpected change. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Your imagination and insight will help you suggest ideas that will raise your profile and enhance your reputation. Make an offer and enjoy the ride. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Avoid temptation. Overspending or excessive behavior will cause stress and worry. Concentrate on what you can do for others and how you can better build relationships with important people. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Raise your profile to ensure that you will be considered for a project that you really want to be a part of. You need to attract positive attention if you hope to be chosen. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Keep talking until you get your point across. Your ideas are good, and your ability to bring about change will enable you to make a difference. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Control your emotions and protect your relationships with others. Anger is the enemy, and common sense your ally. Build a solid base and choose quality over quantity. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Secrets may cost you if you don’t participate in surrounding events. Offer your skills, courage and strength in order to turn an idea into a reality. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Network, share your thoughts and show your strengths. Speak from the heart and present what you have to offer with clarity and persistence. Prepare to celebrate. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You’ll be criticized if you don’t finish what you start. Take a stance, even if you don’t feel prepared. Decisive action will help you overcome a stalemate. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Complete anything that has been left undone. An unusual change at home will turn out to be a creative and fruitful choice. Follow the path less traveled.

Progressive motion will get you where you want to go in the coming months. Expect emotional issues to be brought out into the open. Clear up any matter that is keeping you from getting what you want. Use emotional tactics to win personal battles. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Keep everything out in the open so you can deal with issues as they arise. You must clear up any misunderstandings with alacrity. Turn a negative into an opportunity. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t waste the day. There is too much to do, and too little time. Secrets are apparent, and they must be considered before you make a decision based on limited information. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Take a chance and try something unique. Offer help and look for ways to utilize what you have to offer in more diverse ways. Romance will lead to happiness. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Avoid altercations. Partnership problems will escalate if you aren’t willing to compromise. A commonsense approach to work and money will pay off. Keep your life simple. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take a chance, and present what you have to offer. Showing your skills and expertise will be far more effective than talking about them. Actions DISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL speak louder than words. UCLICK FOR UFS

‘Hustle’ leads Globes, ‘12 Years’ takes best drama
Associated Press Amy Poehler made out with Bono, Tina Fey mocked George Clooney’s taste in women and Matt Damon emerged, bizarrely, as the night’s theme. But at the end of a madcap Golden Globes (Fey toasted it as “the beautiful mess we hoped it would be”), the major honors soberly ended up with the favorites. David O. Russell’s con-artist caper “American Hustle” led with three awards, including best film comedy. And despite missing out in the other six categories it was nominated in, the unflinching historical drama “12 Years a Slave” concluded the night as best film drama. “A little bit in shock,” said director Steve McQueen, before shrugging the lyrics to the

old gospel song sung in the slavery epic: “Roll, Jordan, roll.” Russell’s 1970s Abscam fictionalization “American Hustle” had the better night overall, winning acting awards for Amy Adams (best actress drama) and Jennifer Lawrence (best supporting actress). Best picture was the only award for “12 Years a Slave,” which came in with seven nominations, tied for the most with “American Hustle.” Awards were otherwise spread around. Matthew McConaughey took best actor in a drama for his performance in the Texas HIV drama “Dallas Buyers Club.” Leonardo DiCaprio, a nine-time Golden Globe nominee, won his second Globe for best actor in a comedy for his work in “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

Urquhart finds herself in sympathy with members of Congress who want to limit government spending. At least in theory she does. “It’s just hard when you’re the one getting shrunk,” she says. One sign of the persistently tight job market: The percentage of Americans either working or looking for work has reached its lowest monthly level in nearly 36 years, the Labor Department said Friday. The unemployment rate fell in December to 6.7 percent from 7 percent. But that drop occurred mainly because more Americans stopped looking for jobs, many of them out of frustration. Once people without jobs stop looking for one, the government no longer counts them as unemployed. Because unemployment benefits require recipients to look for work, many who would have given up kept seeking a job. The federal benefits eased their financial hardship. But the fundamental problem goes beyond unemployment aid: A shortage of decent-paying jobs for those still coping with the aftermath of the Great Recession.

The West fears Iran’s nuclear program could allow it to build a nuclear bomb. Iran says its program is for peaceful purposes, such as medical research and power generation. Iran’s semiofficial ISNA news agency reported Sunday that under the terms of the deal, Iran will guarantee that it won’t try to attain nuclear arms “under any circumstance.” However, Araghchi stressed Iran could resume production of 20 percent uranium in “one day” if it chose. The senior U.S. officials said U.N. inspectors would have daily access to Iranian nuclear sites and would make monthly reports. Iran will dilute half of its nuclear material during the first three months of the agreement, the officials said, and all of it by the end of the agreement.

Water flows out of the canal, which is entirely above sea level, into both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt wanted the likeness of women’s rights leader Susan B. Anthony carved alongside the presidential sculptures on Mount Rushmore. Mrs. Roosevelt’s proposal was made in 1935 while work on Mount Rushmore was still underway. Funding was cut for the project.
