Like Alliance Automation was informed today, many small businesses in Ohio have a tax cut coming to them, specifically a 50 percent small business deduction on their first $250,000 of business income. I look forward to seeing this benefit take shape for many small businesses in Ohio, including here in the Van Wert area. Alliance Automation and Toledo Molding & Die should be proud of the continued investments they are making here in the community.”

Jenkins ready to start Spencerville Water Treatment Plant project


Obituaries State/Local Religion Community Sports Classifieds Television World briefs

SPENCERVILLE — Village Administrator Sean Chapman told Spencerville Village Council Tuesday he met with Todd Jenkins, the new construction administrator (CA) for the village’s new water treatment plant, and he is up to speed and ready to get started on the project. Jenkins has requested current contracts and drawings for his review. “We had a meeting scheduled at the plant site on Thursday, where Peterman and Associates introduced Jenkins and brought all parties up to speed on the project status,” Chapman said. “I feel very confident in that we will be in good hands during the course of this project.” He also reminded council members that hiring a 2 new village solicitor before the project resumes is 3 very important. 4 “We have the draft assignment which needs to be 5 reviewed by an attorney to ensure that it protects the 6-7 village from liability,” Chapman stated. “In addition, 8 we may need some legal advice as the project starts 9 back up. “ He urged council to take the appropriate actions in 10 securing a new solicitor as quickly as possible and said if the village does not act swiftly, there is a good chance the overall project schedule could be pushed back. Chapman also reported the Wastewater Treatment

Plant’s generator was repaired and a surge protector was installed to help prevent similar damage to the equipment. In addition, Chapman said Aqua-Line Leak Detection Service searched for leaks in the water distribution system and found one large leak at Mulberry and North streets and three smaller leaks (Charles and First, Fourth Street at the canal and Fourth Street in the alley between Main and Canal streets). Work

orders have been written for each leak and will be repaired soon. Chapman presented council with a request from R. Lee Macwhinney, owner of 120 S. Broadway apartments, for an adjustment in the water/sewer bill at that location. The owner said the tenants left the water running to try to avoid the lines freezing and this created excessive usage of 55,500 gallons, which would cost $848.83. The average usage for that property is 3,350 gallons. Chapman recommended Macwhinney’s bill be adjusted to $403.35, which is still much higher than normal but offers some relief. Council members approved the recommendation and passed the motion unanimously. Recently, there was a low elevated tank alarm which turned out to indicate a leak at the SE corner of 6th & Broadway Streets. “Becker, Burnett and I were on the leak and ended up cutting out 52 inches of the 8-inch diameter pipe, as the original leak was a large hole and lateral crack on the bottom of the pipe, next to a previous repair clamp,” He detailed. After the initial repair, two more leaks were found in close proximity and the crew made the repairs. Council also addressed a new ordinances allowing a one-time carry over of accrued vacation time for village Police Chief Darin Cook. See SPENCERVILLE, page 10

New budget makes changes to Homestead Tax Reduction
Information submitted The new state budget has made significant changes to the Homestead Tax Reduction Law. This real estate tax reduction saves Van Wert County taxpayers between $274.40 and $398.44 per year on their real estate taxes. These changes include Means Testing for both the age-qualified and the disability-qualified applicants. This will now require proof of income before the application is approved for those who have less than $30,500 for 2014 Ohio Adjusted Gross Income (OAGI). This limit will change annually. There is a “grandfather clause” in the law that is allowing anyone who qualifies for the 2013 tax year to be accepted without income verification. This grandfather status is portable, meaning it follows the taxpayer if he or she should move to another home, even if it is in another county. To fall within this category, one must either already be receiving the Homestead reduction on his or her property or qualify as a late application by: • owning AND living in your home as of Jan. 1, 2013, AND at the time the late application is being filed; • being 65 years of age ANY TIME during 2013 OR being certified as totally and permanently disabled as of Jan. 1, 2013; and • completing and submitting a late Homestead application between Jan. 7 and June 2. Grandfathered applicants must show proof of age or disability. If a taxpayer qualifies for a late file application, he or she MUST file during the 2014 application period or a year’s worth of tax reduction will be lost and income limits will be

applied. If the age, disability, or occupancy requirements are not achieved until 2014, application may be completed and submitted during the same period (Jan. 7 – June 2) and with proper proof of age and income. When applying, if a 2014 income tax return will be filed, a copy of the signed Federal and State returns will need to be presented at the time of the application. Proof of income will be needed for the applicant and the applicant’s spouse. If an income tax return is not filed, a mock return form will be required for income verification. It is important that those taxpayers who qualify under the grandfather clause be made aware of this and apply properly so as not to lose this reduction. If you have family members or friends who may fall in this category, please share this article with them.

State liquor sales reach all-time high in 2013
Information submitted

The Ohio Department of Commerce, Division of Liquor Control (Division), announced that dollar sales of spirituous liquor reached a record level in 2013, totaling $898 million. This was an increase of 5.8 percent, exceeding last year’s total by $49 million. “Ohioans continue to trade up buying more of the premium products as consumer tastes become more sophisticated,” said Bruce Stevenson, superintendent of the Division. “Quality customer service and better inventory management are the main ingredients that resulted in record dollar sales without encouraging increased consumption.” Retail dollar sales were strong in 2013 totaling $635 million, an increase of 7.35 percent. Wholesale dollar sales (liquor purchased by retail permit holders such as restaurants, bars and clubs) also showed strong growth totaling $264 million, an increase of 2.5 percent.

Dollar sales grew at a higher rate than consumption in 2013. The Division sold a total of 12 million gallons of spirituous liquor through its 466 Contract Liquor Agencies, an increase of only 3 percent over the previous year. The following were the top 10 selling brands of spirituous liquor in Ohio for 2013 (by gallons sold): 1. Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey – 351,125 gallons 2. Kamchatka Vodka – 294,168 gallons 3. Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey – 286,451 gallons 4. Captain Morgan Spiced Rum – 283,000 gallons 5. Absolut Vodka – 277,729 gallons 6. Bacardi Superior Light Rum – 276,365 gallons 7. Smirnoff Vodka – 266,801 gallons 8. Jagermeister – 247,078 gallons 9. Black Velvet Canadian Whiskey – 230,164 gallons 10. Korski Vodka – 222,357 gallons

COLUMBUS (AP) — The state’s execution policy leaves open the chance an inmate could remain clinically alive even after being pronounced dead, attorneys said Thursday as they tried to stop a condemned killer from being put to death in March. Inmates also run the risk of experiencing unnecessary pain by suffocation under the current execution policy, and Ohio is violating state and federal law by using lethal drugs without prescriptions to carry out capital punishment, the attorneys said in a federal court filing. The attorneys want a federal judge to stop the March 19 execution of Gregory Lott and declare the state’s new execution policy unconstitutional. There is a substantial risk that Lott’s “electrical cardiac activity and electrical brain activity will continue for as long as 45 minutes after breathing and heart sounds are undetected,” federal public defenders Stephen Ferrell and Stephen Kissinger said in the filing. The lawsuit is the latest in a series of legal challenges to Ohio’s injection policy dating back years. It appears to be the first time attorneys have alleged inmates aren’t dead despite a

Condemned killer sues to stop next execution

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio higher education leaders, instructed by Republican Gov. John Kasich to cooperate with each other when requesting state dollars, identified maintenance and repairs as far higher priorities than new construction in a 2014 capital funding request released Thursday. Kasich praised a coalition led by presidents of Ohio public colleges and universities for identifying unique, innovative priorities through shared effort rather than competing for limited state resources. “You know (in college) you have those slices of pizza sitting on the table there, and I remember back in the days when I was in college, you just grab as many slices of pizza as you can,” Kasich said during a conference call detailing the higher education group’s funding outline. “That was inappropriate, and these college presidents are acting so fantastic from the standpoint of what’s good for the state is good for us.” Ohio University President Roderick McDavis, who chaired this year’s Ohio Higher Education Funding Commission, noted that $166.8 million of the $404.5 million requested will be for unglamorous but important maintenance projects across the state, mostly refurbishing and upgrading existing buildings. “As it turns out, because this was a collective process, I think what you’re able to see is that many, many institutions in our state have the same concerns about current and existing space. This collective report gives the state the opportunity to see that deferred maintenance is a very, very serious issue at our universities.” Additional priority was placed on long-term savings, with the $71.7 million requested in that area going to such items as energy efficiency enhancements, mechanical system improvements and shared service arrangements. Republicans who lead Ohio’s two legislative chambers, Senate President Keith Faber and House Speaker William Batchelder, expressed initial support for the funding request, which will be taken up as part of a capital budget expected to be introduced in February. The commission’s further requests are: $117.5 million to modernize classrooms; $15.8 million for enhanced technology; $25.1 million toward expansion; and $7.6 million in strategic investments aimed at improving completion rates.

4 – The Herald

This joke may be the most famous in all of Baptist humor. While crossing a high bridge, a traveler encounters a distressed man who is poised to jump. The first man asks the second if he is religious and a Christian. The suicidal man answers “yes” to both. Catholic or Protestant? The jumper says, “Protestant.” And, as it turns out, both men are Baptists. “Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?” The second man, in a classic version of this joke found at the Ship of Fools website, replies: “Baptist Church of God.” “Me too. Are you original Baptist Church of God, or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?” Second man: “Reformed Baptist Church of God.” “Me too. Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915?” Second man: “Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915.” So the first Baptist pushes the second to his death, shouting: “Die, heretic scum!” The amazing thing is that they didn’t even get to fight about biblical inerrancy, the first chapter of Genesis or the precise details of the Second Coming of Christ. For centuries, Baptists have had their share of arguments about doctrine and church life,

Baptists rethinking Catechism

Friday, January 24, 2014

On Religion
and they cherish their approach to the “priesthood of all believers” and the authority of every local congregation. As the old saying goes, put two Baptists on an island and you will soon have the First Baptist Church of the Deserted Island and the Second Baptist Church of the Deserted Island. Thus, it’s interesting that some educators, on the Baptist left and right, now believe that it’s time for modern Baptists to use an ancient tool -- the catechism -- in their struggles against rising levels of biblical and doctrinal illiteracy. Catechisms are short documents written in a simple, question-and-answer format to help children and new believers learn the basics of the faith. “This used to be Sunday school for Baptists and the way that they taught and handed down doctrines from generation to generation,” said Thomas Nettles, who teaches historical theol-

ogy at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky. Catechisms “showed you what you believed, in common with other Christians, but they also told you what you believed, as a Baptist, that was different from other Christians.” For many Baptists today, proposing a Baptist catechism may sound as strange as talking about a Baptist creed or even a Baptist pope. The key, explained Nettles, is that while Catholics, Anglicans, Lutherans and others can rally around a common catechism that expresses their tradition’s authoritative stance on doctrine, Baptists through history have freely chosen different catechisms at the local, congregational level. For example, while early versions of the Sunday School Board -- back in 1863 and 1891 -- published catechisms for Southern Baptists, some churches used them while others did not. The final doctrinal authority remained in local pews and pulpits. Some congregational leaders even wrote their own catechisms. Tradition says there can be one Catholic catechism. By definition, Baptists have always needed multiple catechisms. “Still, the reality was that there was more of a sense of shared faith and practice back then, compared with Baptist life today, which has been shaped by decades of conflict and arguments,” said Nettles. “We can’t go back

to where we were. ... Right now, I don’t think Baptists could even agree on what it would mean for us to try to hold doctrines in common. Too many things have happened to push us apart.” Ironically, he said, some of the modern forces behind the creation of many Baptist niche groups -- the Internet, parachurch ministry conferences and megachurches with superstar pastors -- are inspiring people to rally around documents that resemble catechisms. For example, some Baptists began to rebel against a kind of doctrinal “libertarianism” that denies the need for doctrinal specifics, period. “You go online and this is what you see,” said Nettles. “People are speaking out and then other people will rally around that persuasive voice. Before you know it, a network has formed around a set of common beliefs and people start sharing what they know and what they believe. “Then they start writing things down. Pretty soon they’re sharing books and educational materials. They even end up with things that look a lot like catechisms.” (Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the project to study religion and the news.)

Instead, forward the e-mail to phishing@ Additional information on how to report phishing scams involving the IRS is available on the genuine IRS website, In addition, the IRS continues to aggressively expand its efforts to protect and prevent refund fraud involving identity theft as well as work with federal, state and local officials to pursue the perpetrators of this fraud. The IRS offers several suggestions for taxpayers to help protect themselves against scams and identity theft: • Don’t carry your Social Security card or any documents that include your Social Security number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). • Don’t give a business your SSN or ITIN just because they ask. Give it only when required. • Protect your financial information. • Check your credit report every 12 months. • Secure personal information in your home. • Protect your personal computers by using firewalls and anti-spam/virus software, updating security patches

and changing passwords for Internet accounts. • Don’t give personal information over the phone, through the mail or on the Internet unless you have initiated the contact and are sure of the recipient.

Taxpayers also should be very careful when choosing a tax preparer. While most preparers provide excellent service to their clients, a few unscrupulous return preparers file false and fraudulent tax returns and ultimately defraud their clients. It is important to know that even if someone else prepares your return, you are ultimately responsible for all the information on the tax return.

Broncos return to Lady practice in frigid temps
Associated Press ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Peyton Manning found no need to dunk his right hand in a bucket of ice water Thursday — it was 9 degrees when the Broncos returned to their practice field for the first time since clinching a spot in next week’s Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium. “Anytime you can have … a situation that you can simulate during practice that might be in a game, that’s always a good thing,” said Manning, his breath vaporizing as he spoke from the podium after the two-hour workout. Manning, who spent much of his career inside in Indianapolis, has prepared for some cold-weather games since coming to Denver in 2012 by soaking his right hand in ice water. He welcomed the blast of wintry weather after a relatively balmy stretch of January, which included a 63 degree Sunday afternoon when he led the Broncos past the New England Patriots for the AFC title. The knock on Manning is that for all his greatness he crumbles in the cold and in the playoffs — he has just one championship ring in 12 previous trips to the postseason, eight of which ended in first-round exits, including last year’s double-overtime loss to Baltimore on a frigid night in Denver. Manning could take care of both of those criticisms next week when the Broncos face the Seattle Seahawks in East Rutherford, N.J., in the first outdoor Super Bowl ever held in a cold-weather city. Manning With a win, he would be the first quarterback to lead two teams to the title. Although it’s too early for forecasters to predict what the weather will be, there’s a decent chance for freezing temperatures or snow by kickoff on the night of Feb. 2. Although Manning is 167-73 in the regular season, he’s 11-11 in the playoffs. And he’s 4-7 in games that are below freezing at kickoff, although some of those were games where he played sparingly because the Colts had already locked up playoff seeding. Others were against New England, when the Patriots clearly had the better team. And Manning did complete 39 passes for 397 yards and four touchdowns against Tennessee last month when the temperature at kickoff in Denver was 18 degrees. If the Broncos beat the Seahawks — and they’re favored by oddsmakers for the 30th straight game — Manning will match little brother Eli’s two Super Bowl rings. Peyton’s resume is impressive: 13-time Pro Bowler, 7-time All-Pro and odds-on favorite to win his fifth MVP after setting NFL records by throwing for 55 TDs and 5,447 yards. Eli does not think the cold will be a factor in the game, either. “I don’t think this hurts or helps either team,” he said. “Peyton has been in Denver this year and played outside in a lot of cold games. I think obviously if it were to snow or be very windy, it could be a disadvantage to the Broncos, just because how much they like to throw the ball, compared to Seattle and their running game. “For the most part, it’s really going to be the best team that is going to win, whoever plays the best football that day. It’s going to come down to that and execution. The weather isn’t going to decide the game.” Although the Seahawks are more run-oriented, the Broncos do have a good 1-2 punch in running backs Knowshon Moreno, who grew up 45 minutes from the Meadowlands, and Montee Ball, who combined for 2,290 yards from scrimmage and 17 touchdowns this season. Denver safety Mike Adams, who’s also from New Jersey, scoffed at the notion that inclement weather could hurt the Broncos. “We’re talking about the Super Bowl. I’m not worried about the cold, I promise you that,” Adams said. “Weren’t we practicing in like minus-3 degree weather here? So I’m definitely not worried about any cold weather. If anything, I’m worrying about them cancelling the game.” The NFL’s contingency plans call for the game to be played anywhere from Friday, Jan. 31, to Monday, Feb. 3, in case of a major snowstorm. Manning — who is 10-3 while wearing a glove on his throwing hand the last two seasons — and the Broncos are embracing the elements. “We practice in the cold all the time. I think we practiced indoors one time,” Denver pass-rusher Shaun Phillips said. “We’re definitely cold weather bred, and we’ll be ready for it.” Notes: K Matt Prater (illness) didn’t practice. Neither did DT Mitch Unrein (knee). RB Knowshon Moreno (ribs) was limited. Eli: Peyton doesn’t have to win to secure legacy EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — They are two of the NFL’s most well-known quarterbacks. They telephone each other at least once a week to talk shop, work together on an offseason passing camp and have appeared in a number of television commercials. Each had a chance to host “Saturday Night Live.” Each is a Super Bowl MVP. There is something else about Peyton and Eli Manning. First and foremost, they’re brothers. They know each other inside out. They root for each other. They bleed for each other. They’re family. So when little brother Eli says Peyton doesn’t need to beat the Seattle Seahawks and win a second Super Bowl to secure his legacy as one of the NFL’s greatest quarterbacks, believe him. Sure, there is only one title. Two would be the icing and put him on par with Eli. For the past few days, Eli Manning said his big job has been to get his brother extra tickets for the first outdoor Super Bowl in a coldweather city. Barring late add-ons, he’s already hit the request number. “Obviously, I know what it’s like with the Super Bowl and a lot of people are trying to figure out if they’re coming to the games, so I’m trying to take some of that stress off of him and help manage some of those things,” Eli said. “That way, he can focus on work and getting the game plan.” While the two have exchanged some text messages, the brothers have not seen each other since Denver’s win over New England in the AFC title game on Sunday. They hope to get together early next week in the New York for a few hours, when Eli will give Peyton the secrets about playing in MetLife Stadium and his insight into playing Seattle, which the Giants did on here on Dec. 15. The way the Seahawks’ defense dominated New York that day in a 23-0 win, Peyton might well ignore the advice.

Jays repel Redskins in MAC

DELPHOS — Two teams that have been struggling to get over the hump of losing close games — St. John’s and St. Henry — met up in a Midwest Athletic Conference girls hardwood clash Thursday at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium. The Lady Blue Jays got over that hump for this night, getting the lead late in the first period and holding off all Lady Redskin charges to grab a 44-37 victory. The Lady Blue Jays (5-11, 3-3 MAC) had trouble stopping St. Henry 5-8 senior Ally Mikesell, a 1-girl wrecking crew (18 markers, 9 boards, 3 assists, 3 steals) all night long. However, their man-to-man defense and full-court pressure didn’t allow anyone else to get going, with junior Olivia Stahl the nexthighest scorer at six (11 boards). On the other end, the Jays received a varsity career-high 16 from freshman Madilynn Schulte (3 treys) and seven each from sophomores Sydney Fischbach (12 boards, 2 assists) and Rachel Pohlman. “I felt we were more consistent offensively tonight than defensively at times. We had no answer for Mikesell,” St. John’s coach Dan J. Grothouse said. “She broke us down a lot throughout the game. Offensively, I felt that though we were a little better with the scoring droughts, we still had a couple, though they weren’t as long as in past games that ended up costing us games. We’re slowly getting there but it’s a work in progress.” St. Henry coach Kurt Huelsman could commiserate with his counterpart. “We’ve had a number of games like this, where we had chances to win late and couldn’t come through,” he explained. “I don’t know how many games we’ve lost by four or less points this year. The girls came out ready to play and played so hard. I just think St. John’s executed their game plan of putting a lot of pressure on us defensively and it worked enough for them to win. We will go back to the court and look at the film and try to see how we can do

(Delphos Herald/ Randy Shellenbarger) things better.” The Jays either led the entire way or it was tied. They built up a 7-2 edge in the first period on a 3-point play the old way by Pohlman at 5:24, putting Redskin (5-9, 0-5) starter Alyssa Mescher on the pine with her second foul. However, Mikesell answered with a 3-point play of her own and later a layin off a steal at 2:22 to knot the score at 7. St. John’s senior Brooke Zuber drove for a layin off a turnover at 1:28, only to see the Red and White tie it — turning out to be for the final time — at 1:01 as Mikesell finished off a 7-point period on a drive to the basket. When senior Amanda Boberg drove the lane to the basket with 9-1 ticks on the board, the Jays took the lead for good at 11-9. See JAYS, page 7

Pro Bowl teams pit teammate on teammate
By OSKAR GARCIA Associated Press head-to-head matchups made possible by a new Pro Bowl format modeled after fantasy sports and schoolyard pickup games. The teams were drafted by Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders. Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald could line up against teammate Patrick Peterson. Chicago’s wide receiver tandem of Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery might have to face off against cornerback Tim Jennings. And Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith could be sacked by linebacker Tamba Hali or defensive tackle Dontari Poe, or intercepted by safety Eric Berry. Nearly 30 of 88 players in the Pro Bowl have a reasonable chance of facing their NFL teammates on Sunday during the game at Aloha Stadium. Marshall said practicing against Jennings throughout the season has given him inside information he plans to use during the game. “I know what he likes, I know what he doesn’t like,” Marshall said. “I know what he bites on so I’m going to give him some double moves, give him some triple moves and I’m going to run right by him a few times.” Asked if Jennings could say the same about him, Marshall replied: “I don’t think so, man. I don’t give away a lot. I’m a good actor out there.”

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii — Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is disappointed he’s not teammates with Robert Mathis during the Pro Bowl. But the Colts linebacker says if he gets a shot at Luck during Sunday’s game, he’ll take it. “I’m going to bust him,” Mathis said Thursday after practicing for Team Rice, drawing laughs from a crowd of fans while signing autographs. Luck versus Mathis is just one of several

Rice and Sanders split up the Pro Bowlers in an “unconferenced” format earlier in the week. Players on six NFL teams — Baltimore, the New York Jets, Houston, New Orleans, Tampa Bay and Washington — ended up with their teammates only on the same Pro Bowl side. All five New Orleans Saints players ended up on Team Rice, which he built around quarterback Drew Brees. “I love having my guys — I know they can all play,” Brees said Thursday. “And I definitely don’t want to go up against any of them.” His teammate, tight end Jimmy Graham, said Brees was the mastermind behind makings sure the Saints ended up together.

Harvin excited for Super Bowl chance with Seattle
By TIM BOOTH Assocated Press RENTON, Wash. — With all the setbacks Percy Harvin has faced in his first season with Seattle, it would be easy to dwell on the problems. Harvin is trying not to linger on the past, whether it was his hip surgery and recovery that kept him out of 15 of 16 regular-season games or the concussion that left him a spectator for the NFC championship game. Not with the Seahawks headed for a Super Bowl matchup against Denver. “It’s been a roller coaster but it’s all been a blessing. I wouldn’t take anything back that happened this year. It’s made me a stronger person,” Harvin said on Thursday. “It’s definitely been frustrating for a lot of people, not only myself but my teammates. Doug (Baldwin), some of the guys playing my position, not knowing whether I’m going to be at practice. So it was definitely frustrating but it’s all over now. We get to play for the Super Bowl. That’s all in the past.” Harvin returned to practice Wednesday after passing the league’s concussion protocol following the concussion he suffered in the NFC divisional playoff game against New Orleans. The injury was the latest bump in a season filled with starts and stops for Harvin. First was the trade from Minnesota and a lucrative contract with Seattle. Then came the discovery of a damaged labrum in his hip that required surgery in early August and caused him to miss the first 10 games of the regular season. When he returned in Week 11, Harvin was used sparingly, but the amount was too much for his hip and complications followed. He returned for the playoffs and was a significant part of Seattle’s game plan against the Saints in the divisional round when the next setback hit. Harvin’s head bounced off the turf of Harvin CenturyLink Field after leaping for a pass in the end zone in the second quarter of Seattle’s 23-15 win. And again, Harvin was left to be a spectator. “Frustrating. That’s the word that I’ll use. This whole year watching every single game was frustrating,” Harvin said. “But like I said having great teammates, great coaches it was good to be on the sideline and watch those guys perform.” Hitting his head on the turf, just as New Orleans safety Malcolm Jenkins was hitting him in the back, was the second big hit Harvin took against the Saints. He said Thursday he did not believe he was being targeted. Harvin was hit by safety Rafael Bush in the first quarter of the game, a hit that drew a 15-yard penalty and a $21,000 fine from the NFL. “I thought they were just playing football,” explained Harvin, who noted his history with migraines had no influence on the speed of his recovery from the concussion. The opportunities Harvin got against the Saints showed just what he could add to Seattle’s offense. He was used as a runner on a sweep to the perimeter that went for 9 yards and could have gone for more. Seattle tried to find him on deep routes down the seam of the defense and also underneath crossing patterns.

Lancers come from behind to tame Lady Jeffcats, 38-33
BY JOHN PARENT DHI Correspondent MIDDLE POINT — The Lady Jeffcats were coming off a night that saw them shoot an alarmingly low 14.8 percent from the field in a loss at Wayne Trace on Tuesday night. As they traveled to rural Middle Point to take on Northwest Conference rival Lincolnview, Jefferson’s girls had to be expecting the sailing to be a bit smoother. Sometimes, though, it’s hard to break out of a slump. Though Jefferson nearly doubled their shooting percentage, that still left them at a dismal 28.5 percent against the Lady Lancers. To make matters worse, the normally surehanded Wildcats coughed up 18 turnovers in the game, 11 more than their season average, and committed 19 personal fouls. Add it all up and you get a 38-33 Lincolnview victory. “We didn’t play very intelligently, as far as what we can do and what we have done in the past,” noted Jefferson head coach Dave Hoffman, whose team fell to 6-9 overall and 1-4 in conference play. “We just didn’t control the ball tonight. We didn’t put (Lincolnview) in positions where they had to play defense and our defense was not very good - we didn’t force them to their off hand as much as we needed to do. And fouls. We literally fouled our way, to a certain extent, out of this game.” Jefferson got on the board first, thanks to a 3-pointer from the wing by Katie Goergens. After seeing their girls go 3-for-26 from beyond the arc on Tuesday, watching that first one fall had to feel great for the Delphos fans. Unfortunately, it was the only one of the 13 Jefferson 3-point attempts on the night to go down. A pair of free throws by Brooke Culp made it 5-0 before Lincolnview junior Julia Thatcher drained a three of her own but Rileigh Stockwell responded with a driving layup to make it 7-3, which is where the score stood after eight minutes of play. Jefferson was just 2-for-9 in the quarter but the Lancers were even worse at 1-for-11. The Wildcats opened up a lead as big as nine points in the second quarter, thanks to continued poor shooting by Lincolnview. Jefferson made an effort to get the ball moving toward the basket and wound up scoring four of its 10 points in the period from the line. A 3-point play by Hannah Sensibaugh made it 15-6 with 3:22 to go in the half. At that point, Lincolnview was still stuck on one made field goal. The Lancers got another three from Thatcher and a leaner from senior Christine Stemen to cut the Jefferson lead to 17-11 at the half. The second half, however, belonged to the Lady Lancers. More specifically, it belonged to Thatcher. Jefferson still led by six at 19-13 when Culp had to sit after picking up her fourth personal foul - it came on a charge call that negated a basket for the Wildcats. That’s when the Lancers made an effort to get to the rim and create opportunities for themselves. “We had worked on, in practice (Wednesday), being aggressive to the basket after getting past their trap,” said Lancer head coach Dan Williamson. “That was the biggest difference. In the second half, we were aggressive getting to the basket and in the first half, we weren’t.”

Jefferson junior Brooke Culp grabs a rebound despite the efforts of Lincolnview’s Ashton Bowersock and Julia Thatcher Thursday night at Lincolnview. (Delphos Herald/Tina Eley) Thatcher turned the corner at the top of the key and drive the paint, dropping the shot while absorbing contact. She then calmly went to the line and converted the 3-point play with 4:30 to go in the period. That brought the Lancers to within three at 19-16. Less than a minute later, Thatcher knocked down an 18-foot jumper - one of the few perimeter shots to fall for either squad - to pull the Lancers to within one. After Heather Pohlman made one of her two free throws on the other end, Thatcher converted another 3-point play and Lincolnview had its first lead of the game at 21-20 with 2:51 to go in the third. That lead was short-lived thanks to a Stockwell bucket but Claire Clay converted a 3-point play of her own for the Lancers and Lincolnview would take a 26-22 advantage into the final stanza. “All the credit goes to (our players),” Williamson added, noting his team’s resolve after such a rough first half of play. “We could have just packed it up and said ‘we’re just not playing well tonight, let’s save some for Saturday.’ But they didn’t. They came out (in the third quarter) and really played the way they have been playing and the way we need to play to be competitive and to win games. All the credit goes to these kids.” In the fourth, those fouls finally caught up with the Wildcats. Lincolnview attempted 10 free throws in the quarter and made eight of them. A baseline jumper from Ashton Bowersock and a layup by Stemen were the only field goals in the quarter for Lincolnview but Jefferson could only manage a 3-for11 shooting period and couldn’t get closer than three at any point. “Give Lincolnview credit, to play with basically just their five (starters) and do what they needed to do. We just did not play well,” added Hoffman. “They got the job done and we didn’t.” Ten of the 18 Jefferson turnovers came in the second half. Lincolnview outscored the Wildcats 27-16 after the break. “We knew it was going to be tough to get extra possessions that way,” added Williamson. “We’ve done a nice job, this year, of forcing turnovers with our press and with our pressure. I didn’t know how effective that was going to be because of the low number of turnovers that (Jefferson) had.” “I don’t know if it was really our pressure, or if we were just in the right spot but it really caused them some problems in the second half. We started making some hots as well, and that kind of compounded things for them.” Jefferson came up with 31 rebounds on the night, including 10 on the offensive glass. Lincolnview had 23 total boards, with 17 of those coming in the first half. Jefferson shot 10-for-35 from the field to Lincolnview’s 10-for-38 (26.3 percent) but the Lancers committed just nine turnovers in the contest, and not one of those came in the final quarter. Lincolnview improved to 6-10 overall and 2-4 in NWC play. Both teams return to the court Saturday: Jefferson at Ottoville and Lincolnview hosting Parkway.

The Jays began to put distance between themselves and their guests in the second period, using the 3-point shot in the process. Schulte buried a trey on the first possession and added a second with five minutes left in the stanza. Pohlman drilled one at 3:20 and Fischbach scored on an in-bounds play under the basket at 2:36. When junior Halie Benavidez — who also helped check Mikesell, amongst others, in the second period and holding her to four points — hit a free toss ay 1:15, the Jays had their biggest lead of the night at nine — 23-14. The visitors got a transition basket from junior Megan Post at 39 ticks and then a buzzer-beating 12-footer from the right baseline by Mikesell to go into the half down 23-18. Mikesell scored just 20 ticks into the third period to get the visitors with three but no close — then. The Jays didn’t score for 2:40 but their defense held the Redskins off the board as well. They broke the drought with a freebie from sophomore Lexie Hays (5 boards) at 5:20 and Fischbach

hit 3-of-4 free throws to widen the lead to 27-20 by the 4:50 mark. Once m ore, St. Henry neared within three — 27-24 on a tough mid-lane jumper by Mikesell — but the hosts once more pushed it back to seven — 33-26 — on a 3-ball from the key by senior Erica Saine at 1:28 to close thirdperiod scoring. St. Henry was not going away quietly into that good night in the fourth, scoring the first five markers of the finale and battling within 33-31 on a single by Mescher at 4:22. However, Boberg hit a runner in the lane at 3:40 and Schulte drove for the oldfashioned trey at 3:12 to stop the momentum. Mikesell hit 1-of-2 free tosses at 1:30 to get her squad within 38-34 but the Jays salted it away by downing 6-of-11 foul shots in the last 1:11 (15-of-23 for the night for 65.2%). “We missed a few free throws but we shot well enough to keep them at bay,” Grothouse added. “For us, our whole key is to start taking what we do in practice and translate it to the court. That seems to be the most difficult part of this process because

3 dead, 20-plus hurt in I-94 pileup in Indiana
MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) — More than 40 vehicles, many of them semitrailers, collided amid whiteout conditions in a massive highway pileup that left three people dead and more than 20 others injured — at least one critically — in northwestern Indiana, police said Thursday. The pileup on Interstate 94 eastbound began Thursday afternoon near Michigan City, about 60 miles from Chicago, according to Indiana State Police, and at least one person was trapped in a vehicle for hours. I-94 is the main highway heading east from Chicago to Michigan and Indiana, and the main thoroughfare between the nation’s third-largest city and Detroit. Traffic was backed up for hours in frigid snowy conditions, though state police said one westbound lane was open late Thursday. Photos of the scene showed semitrailers and mangled passenger vehicles jammed together the width of the highway near an overpass. Some passenger cars were sandwiched in the wreckage. National Weather Service meteorologist Evan Bentley said a band of heavy lakeeffect snow was reported in the area at the time of the crash, dropping 1 to 2 inches of snow per hour and reducing visibility to a quarter mile or less — with some reports of visibility near zero. Scott Collins, 17, of Chesterton, Ind., was riding in a car with three other teens and saw the crash happen just behind them. “One of the semis started sliding and I think it jackknifed in the middle of the road” and collided with another semi, he

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A decade after landing on Mars, the rover Opportunity is still chugging along. Sure, it has some wear and tear. One of its six wheels and two instruments stopped working long ago. It has an arthritic joint. Its flash memory occasionally suffers a senior moment. But these problems are considered minor for a journey that was supposed to be just a three-month adventure. “No one ever expected this — that after 10 years a Mars exploration rover would continue to operate and operate productively,” project manager John Callas said Thursday. NASA has scrutinized Earth’s planetary neighbor for decades, starting with quick flybys and later with orbiters, landers and rovers. Opportunity touched down on Jan. 24, 2004 — several weeks after its twin Spirit. Both rovers outlasted their warranty by years, but Spirit stopped phoning home in 2010 after getting stuck in sand. Meanwhile, Opportunity has logged 24 miles crater-hopping. The solar-powered NASA rover is now in a sunny spot on the rim of Endeavour Crater where it’s spending its sixth winter poking into rocks and dirt. Its power levels have unexpectedly improved. A recent “selfie” showed dust on its solar panels was later wiped away by blowing winds. Early discoveries by the two rovers pointed to a planet that was once tropical and moist. However, the signs of water suggested an acidic environment that would have been too harsh for microbes.

Opportunity still roving on Mars after a decade

FDA to revise nutrition facts label Hagel ordering full
WASHINGTON (AP) — Those nutrition labels on the back of food packages may soon become easier to read. The Food and Drug Administration says knowledge about nutrition has evolved over the last 20 years, and the labels need to reflect that. As the agency considers revisions, nutritionists and other health experts have their own wish list of desired changes. The number of calories should be more prominent, they say, and the amount of added sugar and percentage of whole wheat in the food should be included. They also want more clarity on how serving sizes are defined. “There’s a feeling that nutrition labels haven’t been as effective as they should be,” says Michael Jacobson of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. “When you look at the label, there are roughly two dozen numbers of substances that people aren’t intuitively familiar with.” For example, he says, most of the nutrients are listed in grams, the metric system’s basic unit of mass. Jacobson says people don’t really understand what a gram is. Michael Taylor, the FDA’s deputy commissioner for foods, says 20 years ago “there was a big focus on fat, and fat undifferentiated.” Since then, health providers have focused more on calories and warned people away from saturated and trans fats more than all fats. Trans fats were separated out on the label in 2006. The nutrition facts label “is now 20 years old, the food environment has changed and our dietary guidance has changed,” says Taylor, who was at the agency in the early 1990s when the FDA first introduced the label at the behest of Congress. “It’s important to keep this updated so what is iconic doesn’t become a relic.” The FDA has sent guidelines for the new labels to the White House, but Taylor would not estimate when they might be released. The FDA has been working on the issue for a decade, he said. There’s evidence that more people are reading the labels in recent years. According to an Agriculture Department study released this month, a greater percentage of adults reported using the nutrition facts panel and other claims on food packages “always or most of the time” in 2009 and 2010 compared with two years earlier. The USDA study said 42 percent of working adults used the panel always or most of the time in 2009 and 2010, up from 34 percent. Older adults used it 57 percent of the time during that period, up from 51 percent. One expected change in the label is to make the calorie listing more prominent, and Regina Hildwine of the Grocery Manufacturers Association said that could be useful to consumers. Her group represents the nation’s largest food companies. Hildwine said FDA also has suggested that it may be appropriate to remove the “calories from fat” declaration on the label. It’s not yet clear what other changes the FDA could decide on. Nutrition advocates are hoping the agency adds a line for sugars and syrups that are not naturally occurring in foods and drinks and are added when they are processed or prepared. Right now, some sugars are listed separately among the ingredients and some are not. It may be difficult for the FDA to figure out how to calculate added sugars, however. Food manufacturers are adding naturally occurring sugars to their products so they can label them as natural — but the nutrition content is no different. Other suggestions from health advocates: — Add the percentage of whole wheat to the label. Many manufacturers will label products “whole wheat” when there is really only a small percentage of it in the food. — Clearer measurements. Jacobson of CSPI and others have suggested that the FDA use teaspoons, as well as grams, for added sugars, since consumers can envision a teaspoon. — Serving sizes that make sense. There’s no easy answer, but health experts say that single-size servings that are clearly meant to be eaten in one sitting will often list two or three servings on the label, making the calorie and other nutrient information deceptive. FDA said last year that it may add another column to the labels, listing nutrition information per serving and per container. The agency may also adjust recommended serving sizes for some foods. WASHINGTON (AP) — With public trust and safety at stake, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered immediate actions Thursday to define the depth of trouble inside the nation’s nuclear force, which has been rocked by disclosures about security lapses, poor discipline, weak morale and other problems that raise questions about nuclear security. It amounted to the most significant expression of high-level Pentagon concern about the nuclear force since 2008, when then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates fired the top uniformed and civilian officials in the Air Force following a series of mistakes that included an unauthorized flight of nuclear-armed cruise missiles across the country. Hagel had recently said he was considering what may lay behind problems in the nuclear Air Force — many revealed by The Associated Press— but his chief spokesman said Thursday that the defense secretary concluded urgent remedies were needed. “To the degree there are systemic problems in the training and professional standards of the nuclear career field, the secretary wants them solved,” the spokesman, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said. “To the degree there are gaps in our understanding or

review of nuclear force
implementation of those standards, he wants them closed. And to the degree leaders have failed in their duties, he wants them held to account.” Hagel summoned top military officials to a Pentagon conference, to be held within two weeks, to “raise and address” any personnel problems infesting the nuclear force, and he ordered an “action plan” be written within 60 days to explore nuclear force personnel issues, identify remedies, and put those fixes into place quickly. Hagel said he and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, will host the nuclear summit. The Pentagon chief also said he would assemble a small group of outsiders with expertise in the nuclear field to conduct a broader review of the U.S. nuclear force, with a focus on personnel issues, and to recommend changes “that would help ensure the continued safety, security and effectiveness of our nuclear forces.” “Personnel failures within this force threaten to jeopardize the trust the American people have placed in us to keep our nuclear weapons safe and secure,” Hagel wrote in a memo to a dozen top officials, including heads of the Air Force and Navy.

said. “After that happened, multiple semis locked up.” He said a box truck got stuck on a guardrail and nearly went over into a waterway. “We were pretty nervous,” he said. Indiana State Police Sgt. Ann Wojas said 20 to 30 people were injured, including one with life-threatening injuries and another who was flown by medical helicopter to a hospital. Franciscan St. Anthony Health in Michigan City had received at least 10 patients, hospital president Dr. Jim Callaghan said. Six people from the accident were taken to IU Health LaPorte Hospital, a nursing supervisor there said. Porter Regional Hospital also received patients, Wojas said.

“We will have an opportunity to use up to three days, which would have otherwise been lost due to inclement weather conditions,” Stant said. “Since we have exhausted our five calamity days, we’ll need to make up two days. We now have the

three ‘Blizzard Bag’ days where students have up to two weeks to make up core subject assignments, including religion, math, English and Language Arts.” The alert system and television will inform students and parents that any further cancelled day of instruction, up to three

days, is indeed a “Blizzard Bag” day. When the students return to school, they will be given an assessment to make up for the cancelled day. Students are expected to finish these assignments as soon as possible. If the assignments are not returned within the two weeks, it will result in the student being

counted absent unexcused and will receive a zero on the assignment. “We are glad to have the flexibility with the calendar and the kids are still learning,” Stant said. “It’s different for the teachers. They are willing to put in the extra work which shows their dedication.”

NEW YORK (AP) — More than 30 years after hooded gunmen pulled a $6 million airport heist dramatized in the hit Martin Scorsese movie “Goodfellas,” an elderly reputed mobster was arrested at his New York City home on Thursday and charged in the robbery and a 1969 murder. Vincent Asaro, 78, was named along with his son, Jerome, and three other defendants in wide-ranging indictment alleging murder, robbery, extortion, arson and other crimes from the late 1960s through last year. The Asaros, both identified as captains in the Bonanno organized crime family, pleaded not guilty through their attorneys and were ordered held without bail at a brief appearance in federal court in Brooklyn. The elder Asaro’s attorney, Gerald McMahon, told reporters outside court that his client was framed by shady turncoat gangsters, including former Bonanno boss Joseph Massino the highest-ranking member of the city’s five organized crime families to break the mob’s vow of silence. Massino “is one of the worst witnesses I’ve ever seen,” McMahon said. He added that Asaro had given him “marching orders” that “there will be no plea and he will walk out the door a free man.” A lawyer for Jerome Asaro declined comment. The indictment accused Vincent Asaro of helping to direct the Dec. 11, 1978, Lufthansa Airlines heist at Kennedy airport - one of the largest cash thefts in American history. The gunmen looted a vault in the airline’s cargo terminal and stole about $5 million in untraceable U.S. currency that was being returned to the United States from Germany, along with about $1 million in jewelry. The cash was never found. According to court papers, an unidentified mob associate who pleaded guilty and became a cooperating witness told investigators that he participated in the robbery at the direction of Asaro. The theft was hatched by James “Jimmy the Gent” Burke, a late Lucchese crime family associate who was close to Asaro, who told the bandits that he had a “score” that would make them rich, the papers say. Each robber was supposed to be paid $750,000, but the cooperating witness said “most did not receive their share, either because they were killed first or it was never given to them,” according to the court papers.
