50¢ daily www.delphosherald.com BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — Connect Ohio’s Digital Works training site at the Delphos Public Library is up and running with orientation classes held at 11 a.m. on Mondays. The program is open to the public. “Digital Works: Connecting People & Jobs” is a sustainable job creation program bringing technology-based jobs to local communities. It connects 21st-century workforce opportunities to people who are seeking employment. It is a unique strategy to create jobs in areas facing high unemployment by leveraging broadband technology for call center and IT outsourcing. Digital Works Operations Manager Heather Delany said 14 people have applied for the orientation program in Delphos. “Fifty-one people in the state have completed the training and now have jobs,” Delany said. “Currently, we have 200 folks actively enrolled throughout the state.” Delany said there have been 1,000 applications come in from across the state and one-half of the applicants have attended orientations. The process to get accepted into the program includes an online application submission — which can be found at www.connectednation.org/applicant-intake-form — in-depth interview, skills intake and assessment, nationally-accredited job readiness certificate, background and credit check qualification. Public Relations Specialist Lyndsey Klevin said this is a great time for awareness. ”The idea is to bring technology levels up in rural communities,” Klevin said. “With 144 hours of training and the job placement program, there is a quick turn around time.” Students will complete 144 hours of training at their own pace with

three milestones: 20 hours of basic computer skills; 20 hours of English and grammar skills; and 104 hours of customer service skills. • Gate 1: Students will learn techniques and skills that will help in customer service-related jobs by watching videos and taking quizzes. • Gate 2: Students will complete approximately six to eight skill tests that measure computer, English and customer-service skills. • Gate 3: Students will practice script reading to improve their grammar, level of enthusiasm and tone. Students will also complete voice auditions during the third week of training. “Those who complete the training start in level 1, a customer service-oriented position,” Delany explained. “There is career mentorship through levels 2, 3 and 4 which would include positions like technical help assistant or other positions that lines up with our goals.” The first training program began in Zanesville in May of 2013 and

Blue Creek Plant Manager Neil Voje (left side of check) presents a check for $2,070,000 to Van Wert County, township and school district officials Thursday morning. Also on hand was State Sen. Cliff Hite and State Rep. Tony Burkley. The payment was made in lieu of property taxes and is the first of 20 annual payments. The money is split between school districts, townships, the county and a few other designees. (Times Bulletin/Ed Gebert)
Wind farm company delivers $2M check to county
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor email@example.com check presentation. He summed up his feelings very simply. “Throughout this whole process, there have been some people who have been skeptical and said, ‘I’ll believe the money when I see it.’ Well, we just saw it,” he said. The check for $2,070,000 will be divided between Crestview and Lincolnview schools, Tully, Union and Hoaglin townships, Thomas Edison, Council on Aging, Tri-County Mental Health, OSU Extension, the Brumback Library and the county’s General Fund. “It’s been a long process. We started working here in 2008 and six years along here we are with the first payment, but it’s been a fun trip,” recalled Project Developer Dan Litchfield. “We saw the light at the end of the tunnel and now we’re there. It took a little longer than we expected but the benefits are here, they are real and they are big. The numbers are split pretty evenly with all of our 250 landowners getting about $2 million a year. And now between Van Wert and Paulding County, a little over $2.7 million a year in payment in lieu of property taxes. Big numbers.” State Representative Tony Burkley commented, “We’re always happy to see opportunities that exist that will help the schools. This one definitely will be an added benefit to the school districts. With a $2 million-plus check coming for the schools, you just can’t ask for anything better than that. It just relieves pressure off of other avenues that the schools have to go to; whether it be property tax or income tax, there’ll be that much less they’ll have to collect in that avenue. That’s good and we’re happy to see it happen.” Blue Creek Wind Farm contains 152 wind turbines which generate two megawatts of power. The turbines are on 328foot towers and with blades reach 476 feet in the air. The turbines are scattered through Tully, Union and Hoaglin townships in Van Wert County and Benton, Blue Creek and Latty townships in Paulding County. See CHECK, page 10

VAN WERT — It was one of the biggest checks ever received by Van Wert County. With all the zeroes, it looked like the county had won a sweepstakes prize but actually the check was the annual payment from Iberdrola Renewables as the payment in lieu of taxes. The agreement with the Blue Creek Wind Farm developer was for a payment to be made rather than paying property taxes. The check for the year totaled more than $2 million. State Sen. Cliff Hite, an alternativeenergy supporter, was there for the

After 22 years, Leno bids farewell to ‘Tonight’
BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Jay Leno has said goodbye to “The Tonight Show” before, but not like this. The comedian became tearful and choked up Thursday as he concluded what he called the “greatest 22 years of my life.” “I am the luckiest guy in the world. This is tricky,” said the emotional Leno, stepping down for the second and presumably last time as host of TV’s venerable late-night program. Jimmy Fallon takes over “Tonight” in New York on Feb. 17. Leno shared that he’d lost his mother the first year he became “Tonight” host, his dad the second and then his brother. “And after that I was pretty much out of family. And the folks here became my family,” he said of the crew

STEADY U reminds elders to take The Delphos extra care to prevent falls in February Herald
Information submitted COLUMBUS - Ohio’s official groundhog meteorologist, Buckeye Chuck, may not have seen his shadow, predicting an early arrival for spring weather but that doesn’t mean that winter is done with us just yet. Forecasters warn that the artic temperatures of January may give way to significant snowfalls and ice in February. Slippery conditions can lead to a fall, which for many older adults, can be a life-changing event. Falls are the leading cause of injuries-related ER visits, hospitalizations and deaths for older Ohioans. Falling is not a normal part of aging and most falls can be prevented. The STEADY U Ohio initiative offers simple steps you can take to ensure that wintry conditions don’t send you slipping and tripping: — Bundle up to stay warm but make sure you can see in all directions and move easily and freely. — Wear sturdy shoes or boots with treads, even if you’re just going out to get the newspaper. — Wear sunglasses to reduce glare from the sun and snow and help you see where you are walking. — Do some light stretching before you venture out. — Carry a small bag of salt, sand or kitty litter to sprinkle in front of you for traction on icy paths. — If you must walk on icy surfaces, slow down, shorten your stride and walk with your feet pointed out slightly and knees gently bent to improve traction and balance. — Snow can hide curbs and uneven surfaces. If you can’t see where your foot will land, find another way. — Replace worn rubber tips on canes, walkers and crutches. Ask a mobility equipment dealer about winter canes or cleats you can add to existing equipment. — Dry off shoes, canes, crutches and walkers as soon as you get indoors. — Carry a cleaning cloth and stop to clean your glasses if they fog up. — If you are going out alone, carry a cell phone; know who you will call if you fall and make sure that person knows what to do if you call. — Stay hydrated. Dehydration can affect your balance as well as how your body responds to medication. — Ask your doctor or physical therapist about indoor exercises that can help you maintain strength and balance when you can’t venture out. — Ask your post office, newspaper and garbage collector about service options when conditions are bad. — When in doubt, don’t risk it. Ask for help if you don’t feel safe doing something. Visit www.steadyu.ohio.gov and follow SteadyUOhio on Facebook and Twitter for more falls prevention tips and resources. Your area agency on aging also can help you connect to services and resources like minor home modifications and “A Matter of Balance” workshops. Call 1-866-243-5678 for the agency serving you.

Insurance Department saved Ohioans $23.5M in 2013
Information submitted COLUMBUS – Lieutenant Governor and Insurance Director Mary Taylor announced the Ohio Department of Insurance helped Ohio consumers save or recover $23.5 million in 2013 while assisting nearly 200,000 Ohioans mainly through its toll-free hotlines, community outreach efforts and counseling sessions. Taylor also announced the Department’s top types of consumer complaints based on both the reason for the complaint and by the type of coverage. The Department’s savings and recovery figure includes $16.4 million by the Department’s Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP), and $7.1 million from the Office of Consumer Affairs, which addresses non-Medicare insurance matters. Over the past two years, the Department has saved or recovered $48 million for Ohioans. “Each and every day the Department is working with consumers to help resolve their complaints and answer their questions,” Taylor said. “As we continue to improve our processes and reach out to consumers more aggressively, we helped Ohioans save or recover $23.5 million in 2013.” The Office of Consumer Affairs received 5,397 consumer complaints in 2013.

Know what’s covered, what’s excluded and deductible amounts. File Claims as Soon as Possible: Call your agent or your company’s claims hotline right away. Provide Complete, Correct Information: Incorrect or incomplete information can cause a delay in processing your claim. Ask Questions: If there is a disagreement about the claim settlement, ask the company for the specific language in the policy that is in question. Find out if the disagreement is because you and the insurance company interpret your policy differently. If this disagreement results in a claim denial, make sure you obtain a written letter explaining the reason for the denial and the specific policy language under which the claim is being denied. Do not Rush into a Settlement: If the first offer made by an insurance company does not meet your expectations, be prepared to negotiate to get a fair settlement. If you have any questions regarding the fairness of your settlement, seek professional advice. Health Claims: Ask your physician to provide your insurance company with details about your treatment, medical conditions and prognosis. If you suspect a provider is overcharging, ask the insurance company to audit the bill and verify whether the provider used the proper billing procedure. Ohio consumers who would like to file a complaint or have insurance questions can call the Department’s consumer hotline at 1-800-686-1526 or visit www.insurance.ohio.gov. If your inquiry is Medicare related, call OSHIIP at 1-800-686-1578. You can follow the Department on twitter @OHInsurance and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ Ohio Department of Insurance.

Part II At first glance, the original rules written to govern the Apple App Store seem to be simple, logical and easy to enforce. After all, who wants one of the world’ most powerful corporations to circulate digital forms of hate? Consider, for example, the guidelines governing “personal attacks” and “objectionable content.” The former rejects, “Any app that is defamatory, offensive, mean-spirited, or likely to place the targeted individual or group in harm’s way.” This does not apply to humorists and satirists, of course. The “objectionable content” rule forbids “apps that are primarily designed to upset or disgust users.” The section on “religion, culture, and ethnicity” offers another variation on this theme, stating: “Apps containing references or commentary about a religious, cultural or ethnic group that are defamatory, offensive, meanspirited or likely to expose the targeted group to harm or violence will be rejected.” The problem, of course, is that apps that gladden the hearts of gay mainline Protestants, Reform Jews and other doctrinal liberals will be deeply offensive to Southern Baptists, Orthodox Jews and other conservatives -- and vice versa. And one person’s evangelism app may, by its very existence, be seen by those in other faiths as a tool for spiritual violence. The bottom line: It’s hard to produce prod-
Religion and the app store wars

ucts built on religious doctrine without offending someone. So do Apple leaders ban all of them or listen only to the religious voices they find the most sympathetic? In recent years, media leaders have “increasingly bought into the idea of minimizing content that they view as potentially offensive,” said Quentin Schultze of Calvin College, a media scholar who has been studying online religion for two decades. “The larger and more influential the media outlets, the more likely they are to want to take the edges off, because they have the most to lose. ... It’s the unique, unusual minority points of view that will keep getting clipped off, of course.” Back in the early 1990s, when Web browsers and email were foreign terms to ordinary Americans, Schultze began exploring the implications of online discourse and publishing for religious believers and their institu-
tions. Soon this led to his trailblazing “The Internet for Christians” website -- a weblogstyle project years before that term was coined -- and then a 1995 book with the same title. The key, Schultze said during those heady days, was that the lower costs and accessibility of World Wide Web publishing would create a “somewhat level playing floor” allowing small, innovative ministries to compete, or cooperate, with larger religious institutions. During times of turmoil, for example, a dissident religious group’s online publication could publish information and viewpoints that would be ignored in a major denomination’s traditional ink-on-paper newspaper or by secular papers. “Clearly, the Net is becoming a place for religious discourse that is being ignored in public media and isn’t being allowed in the sanitized world of official church publications,” he told me in an “On Religion” column interview in 1996. Decades later, it’s hard to imagine what the marketplace of religious ideas and debates would be like without the legions of alternative voices and viewpoints found in the global religious blogosphere and in social media. The problem, said Schultze, is that if powerful digital corporations -- think Apple, Google and Facebook -- insist on pushing religious voices out of the mainstream public
square, the online result will almost certainly be even more strident rhetoric and propaganda on the fringes of public life. “The wild, wild west of the Internet is still out there, but all too often what’s being said out there is very narrow and self-fulfilling. That’s where you have websites that just keep telling small groups of people want they want to hear, over and over, with little or no contact with other groups and other points of view,” he said. “But when the leaders of Apple endorse something, or reject something else, they are primarily worried about how that action will affect the reputation of their corporation, not whether their decision promotes a healthy diversity in our public discourse.” In a tense atmosphere, he added, religion is a uniquely dangerous subject. “The passion and the commitment that religious believers bring with them into public discourse is precisely what makes this subject seem so flammable and threatening and dangerous to people in places like Apple.” (Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the GetReligion.org project to study religion and the news.)

In the Waiting Room ...
with Dr. Celeste Lopez
When you become a parent there are many things you learn to accept. You learn to accept that toothpaste will always be crusted in globs all over the bathroom sink. You learn to accept that dirty clothes can be found everywhere in the house except the clothes hamper. But one thing that is hard to get used to is that no matter what happens in the house, nobody ever knows what happened or why. For instance, I remember walking into the kitchen when my son was little and he was standing in the middle of the kitchen covered in powdered sugar that he had spilled on himself when he tried to get it out of the cabinet. I asked him what happened and as he stood there covered in white powder, he looked at me with big innocent eyes and said “nothing.” “Nothing? How did you get covered in powdered sugar?” “I don’t know” “Am I supposed to believe that you were just standing here and it suddenly started raining powdered sugar in the kitchen?” He shrugged in a way that was supposed to convey that this was definitely possible. If he thought I was going to buy that excuse, he was going to go with it. Having kids is like playing a perpetual game of Clue. You have to figure out who did it, with what and where. You feel like you have to be Sherlock Holmes. You don’t want them to get away with anything but you don’t want to accuse them of something that they didn’t do. It is always important that they understand that the things they do have consequences but at the same time you don’t want to go overboard either. It is important for them to know that they have boundaries, but it is important that the boundaries not be so tight that it seem like a cage to them. If they feel like the constraints are too tight they will try to rattle the bars and push back the boundaries. Even though they act like they want you to leave them alone, they also like the idea that there is someone there who is watching them to make sure they don’t stray too far off the path. They need to know that someone cares. The temptation to get into trouble is always there. The kids who stray off the path can seem like they are having

How did that happen?
a lot of fun, it can be hard to not join them. If they know that their parents will catch them, will stop them and will punish them is often what keeps them from stepping over the line. They will often deny what they did but they need to know that you will figure it out. After all, you know them better than anyone. You have always been able to figure out what they were doing before they need to know you will figure them out now. Even though they are bigger and they bristle when you ask, it is more important than ever that you continue to play the game. Because who did it, with what and where they are doing it can have much bigger consequences than a messy kitchen. But when you want them to believe that you will get to the bottom of whatever they do, it started years ago in a kitchen with a little boy with sugar in his hair. Dr. Celeste Lopez graduated cum laude from The University of Utah College of Medicine. In 2003 she moved her practice, Wishing Well Pediatrics, to Delphos and is located at 154 W. Third Street. She is the proud mother of a 14 year old son.

Winter weather not delightful for area ADs
By LARRY HEIING DHI Correspondent email@example.com DELPHOS — Remember the jubilation as a child when school was canceled because of snow or ice storms? That was then. For area athletic directors, Ohio’s unpredictable winter weather gives them headaches more than happiness when Mother Nature decides to throw a wrench into their hard work. Schedules for our area schools are made months, sometimes years in advance. The league games are set year-to-year, alternating every year at home and away. Rounding out schedules with nonconference opponents requires countless hours of contact between athletic directors to find a common open date that matches their respective schools’ schedules. In Ohio, winter weather can quickly change months of planning for a sporting event in a matter of hours. Jefferson Athletic Director Chris Sommers says “that when bad weather is in the foreSommers cast, we notify our coaches to be on alert and to start thinking about alternate dates in case the game is canceled. Then the two schools that are scheduled to play begin discussions with the away team having the decision of whether they are going to travel that day/night.” “The first priority is for the safety of all those involved,” explained St. John’s co-Athletic Director Todd Schulte. “You have to take into account the travels of the bus as well as those that might be making the trip. We also take into account what it is going to be like when the bus gets back home at 10 p.m. and our high school kids have to get in their cars and drive home.” “We have had a few cancelations when the home team decided that it is too bad to host, so they have the right to make the call as well,” Schulte elaborated. “At a lot of schools, the superintendent has the final say to cancel or not.” Some area schools have a policy Schulte that if school is canceled for the day, no sporting events can be held that day. Delphos schools do not have that policy in place, so it is possible for school to be called off and the game could go on as scheduled if the weather clears enough to be safe for travel. Once the decision is made to postpone the game, it’s not as easy as the game is canceled, let’s go home. It’s the opposite for directors. “You need to make sure that everyone scheduled to work the game from the concession stand, scorekeepers and officials are notified” continued Sommers. “Then it’s back on the phone or Internet to reschedule the game. We consult with our coaches to check available dates and then check for gym availability. Finally, once a common date is agreed upon between the schools to reschedule the game, the process begins all over again to get officials, workers and so on.” Schulte also pointed out that “with the winter weather that we’ve had this year, most schools’ schedules are getting to the point where they are playing more actual games instead of practices. So in a winter like this, it starts to become tedious to make sure that you have everything covered for every rescheduled game. This year we have postponed or canceled a total of 16 contests that range from boys/girls basketball to junior high boys/girls as well as wrestling. This year alone, we’ve had to adjust seven of our high school boys basketball games (some due to the success of the football program) but that shows how much of a mess our boys basketball schedule is.” Sommers added “at Jefferson, we’ve had to reschedule eight games because of the weather. It’s getting to the point where we simply can’t find a common date remaining on the calendar. We’ve even had to cancel two games because of scheduling conflicts. With the forecast of more winter storms this week, our chore our cancelations isn’t over yet.”
Wildcats win battle of SR 66
By LARRY HEIING DHI Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org SPENCERVILLE — Spencerville High School honored their senior girls basketball players, Tori Hardesty and Karri Purdy, before their game with the Jefferson Wildcats at “The Walk-In Closet”. Afterwards, junior Bearcat basketball player Schylar Miller sang a beautiful rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. In the end, it was the Lady Wildcats who proved rude guests as they bounced the Bearcats 50-36 in Northwest Conference action. The Lady Bearcats came out with bombs bursting in air as junior Emilee Meyer faked out the Delphos defense and hit the baseline jumper. Purdy hit a 3-point bomb from the corner and Spencerville was up by five. Megan Miller found Katie Merriman in the paint for another bucket and the Bearcats were out to a 7-0 lead. Jefferson finally found an answer against the tough 2-3 zone of Spencerville when Rileigh Stockwell scored on a drive with 2:25 left in the opening period. On the Lady ‘Cats next possession, Katie Goegens scored with a crossing-lane shot and was fouled. Her made free throw cut the lead to two and sophomore Jacey Grigsby responded for Spencerville with a nice move under the bucket. Stockwell added a free throw and Jefferson trailed 9-6 at the end of one. Spencerville coach Warren Pughsley said “the first quarter reminded me of out last game with Jefferson at sec-

Tonight we jumped out by 7 again and we started to throw the ball away.” The Bearcats committed eight turnovers in the first period compared to five for Jefferson. The Lady ‘Cats went on a 9-point run to open the second quarter while attacking Spencerville’s full-court press. The Lady Bearcats then scored the next five points to cut the lead back to one. Stockwell made two free throws for her 10th point of the first half, followed by a bank shot by Amanda Crider for Spencerville. Emilee Meyer had five points to lead the hosts at the halftime break, trailing 17-16. Stockwell continued her scoring outburst to open the third period scoring underneath on a wide-open shot and scoring again on a layup after a steal by the defense. See WILDCATS, page 7

Hall-of-Fame slugger Kiner dies at 91
By BEN WALKER Associated Press NEW YORK — Ralph Kiner was a smash as a slugger, launching so many home runs over the left-field wall at old Forbes Field that fans nicknamed it his corner. Years later, as one of baseball’s most beloved broadcasters, he became a big hit in a new “Kiner’s Korner.” Kiner, the Hall-of-Famer whose frequent malaprops endeared him to New York Mets listeners for more than a half-century, died Thursday. He was 91. The Hall of Fame announced Kiner died at his home in Rancho Mirage, Calif., with his family at his side. “He was a jewel,” Mets’ Hall-of-Famer Tom Seaver said. Kiner hit 369 home runs during a 10-year career cut short by back problems. He debuted with Pittsburgh in 1946 and won or tied for the National League lead in homers in each of his first seven seasons. He was popular off the field, too. His Hollywood pals included Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, he squired Liz Taylor and Janet Leigh, and he played himself in the 1951 film “Angels in the Outfield.” Kiner became a Mets announcer in their expansion season of 1962, working 17 years as a trio with Bob Murphy and Lindsey Nelson. Kiner called their games for 52 years in all, including a handful of them last season. Kiner was already a fixture on the Mets’ airwaves when he was inducted into the Hall in 1975. He was elected with just one vote to spare in his 15th and final year on the Baseball Writers’ Association of America ballot. The six-time All-Star outfielder still ranks sixth alltime with a home run every 14.1 at-bats. He averaged more than 100 RBIs per season and hit .279 with the Pirates, the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland. When he retired, Kiner was sixth on the career home run list.

Parrot takes lead in Olympic debut of slopestyle Scores
EDDIE PELLS Associated Press KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — And to think, Shaun White chose not to ride down this course. Snowboarders kicked off competition at the Olympics on Thursday by making the slopestyle layout that White deemed “intimidating” feel anything but that. Sunny skies. No wind. Decent snow. All in all, slopestyle’s debut on the grand stage was a great day for riding rails and grabbing big air and an even better day for scores. Canadian Max Parrot backed up his win last month at the Winter X Games with a 97.5 — 2½ points short of perfect — in a qualifying run punctuated by a triple-flipping jump with a dead-solid landing, the likes of which will be virtually mandatory to win the gold medal. He was one of eight riders to reach the 90s on a day in which Australia’s Scotty James and Norway’s Kjersti Buaas took the worst falls, but both walked away. “Other riders complained about the course this week. I actually found it really good from Day One to now,” Parrot said. White pulled out Wednesday, saying he wanted to focus on winning a third straight gold medal in the halfpipe next week. He was in no mind to put his health at risk on a course that took out one of the world’s top riders, Torstein Horgmo of Norway, and sent dozens more tumbling in training. Things still weren’t 100 percent ideal when competition began, one day before the opening ceremony. “It’s getting better. Not fully perfect yet. Pretty icy. Makes it hard to shape the jumps clean,” said Norway’s Staale Sandbech, who scored 94.5.

Smith figures his game plan is simple. “They want to play at a hightempo, high-scoring pace; they love to shoot the 3s in transition and push the ball,” he explained. “That means we have to get back in transition defense ourselves and take away those high-percentage looks, especially on the perimeter; if we let them run to their hearts content, it will be a long night for us. At the same time, we also want to push the ball because we want a higher tempo, too. For us, we need to do a good job on the boards, especially getting some second shots of our own to slow them down, get to the free-throw line and not give them uncontested shots. “We know we can’t match their skill level right now, so we have to out-tough them: make the hustle plays, get the loose balls, all of those things. My kids have been very business-like this week and fully expect to come out a winner (tonight).”
That remains the goal every night for Smith and his Wildcats. “We have played a few teams that, on paper, we’re the underdogs and a few teams that we are probably favored. That’s why we’ve played a lot of close games,” he added. “These kids work hard and compete every night out. “When you look at our losses, none of them have been to slouches: Crestview is unbeaten and leads the NWC; Columbus Thompson Grove is at the top of the PCL; Fort Recovery leads the MAC; Perry is near the top of the NWCC; Paulding is 12-4. We’ve had some good wins, especially Kalida and Ottoville, which the way the latter is playing now looks better and better. “What hurts us is that most very team we plays has at least a couple of kids playing at a high level of AAU: for example, Crestview has six. That means they are playing 9-10 months a Jettinghoff year. For us to compete with that type of talent says something about our kids.”
(Continued from page 6) S. Hyre and L. Monnin led the hosts with 10 each. For the Jays (10-7, 2-6), Colleen Schulte notched six. The Jays visit Ottoville 6 p.m. Saturday.

Meyer hit a triple and Merriman hit a free throw and the lead was back to one. Goergens heated up by scoring five points around a bucket by Megan Miller for Spencerville. Hannah Sensibaugh got in the scoring column with a basket in the lane but Grigsby added a pair from the charity stripe to keep Spencerville within four points. A steal with Spencerville in a fullcourt press by Merriman and pass ahead to Purdy for the layin made it a 28-26 game with 1:41 left in the quarter. Jefferson’s Jasmine McDougall had a nifty spin move in the paint for a bucket on the inbounds play from the side when the third stanza ended. The Lady ‘Cats outhustled Spencerville at both ends of the floor to go on a 13-0 run to open the final quarter
and forced a timeout by Coach Pughsley with 4:22 remaining in the game. The Lady Bearcats never recovered with Jefferson outscoring them 20-10 in the final eight for a 50 to 36 victory. Long-time Jefferson JV coach Jamie Lewis was filling in for head coach Dave Hoffman and said after the game that “Spencerville came out and battled to open the game. It took our girls a while to respond to their pressure. We started finding holes in the defense in the third quarter and our team gained confidence.” Pughsley also had the same opinion of the game: “We had great defensive pressure against a good team tonight. When we got down by 6-8 points, we lost some confidence and lost some energy. When we made a steal, we got that energy back but we just couldn’t hold onto it.” Jefferson was led in scoring by
Stockwell with 20 points and Goergens added 12. Spencerville, meanwhile, had one player in double digits as Meyer scored 11. Jefferson committed 22 turnovers against the Bearcat pressure and Spencerville had 18. On the glass, Spencerville grabbed 18 rebounds, while Jefferson pulled down 15. Spencerville has four regular-season games remaining and will take on Perry Saturday night. Jefferson has a total of three games left in the regular season with Ottoville being their next contest on Monday, followed by Ft. Jennings on Tuesday.

Speaker: Immigration overhaul tough to pass First guidelines issued to
WASHINGTON (AP) — Speaker John Boehner on Thursday all but ruled out passage of immigration legislation before this fall’s elections, saying it would be difficult for the Republican-led House to act on the issue that President Barack Obama has made a top domestic priority. In his most pessimistic comments, Boehner blamed the stalemate on widespread skepticism that Obama would properly enforce any immigration reforms that Congress approved. The GOP leader didn’t mention that his own members have balked at acting on the contentious issue, which could enrage core conservative voters in the midterm election year. “The American people, including many of our members, don’t trust that the reform we’re talking about will be implemented as it was intended to be,” Boehner told reporters at his weekly news conference. “The president seems to change the health care law on a whim, whenever he likes. Now, he is running around the country telling everyone he’s going to keep acting on his own.” Just last week, Boehner and other House Republican leaders had unveiled broad principles for immigration changes, including legal status for the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally, tougher border security and a shot at citizenship for children brought to the country illegally. National Republicans see the failure to act on immigration as a political drag on the party after 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney captured just 27 percent of the Hispanic vote, and they are pressing for action to moderate the party’s image. The principles endorsed last week were seen as a congressional jump-start for an issue that had been stalled since Senate passage of a comprehensive, bipartisan bill last June.

Unemployment bill stalled anew in Senate
WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans narrowly blocked the advance of legislation to restore benefits for the long-term unemployed on Thursday for the second time in less than a month, and Democrats said they intended to call yet another vote on the issue. “We’re one Republican vote away from restoring unemployment benefits for 1.7 million Americans,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said. The White House called the outcome disappointing. The measure called for a three-month renewal of an expired program that provided up to 47 weeks of federal benefits when state-paid aid runs out, generally after 26 weeks. The cost was estimated at slightly more than $6 billion over a decade. It would have been offset by lowering pension obligations for some companies, a step that would have increased their taxable income. The vote was 58-40, two shy of the 60 that backers of the measure needed to prevail. That understated the measure’s true support, because Reid sided with opponents at the last minute in a maneuver that will permit him to have the issue reconsidered under the Senate’s rules.
US sees Russian hand in envoy’s bugged call
WASHINGTON (AP) — Two senior American diplomats, thinking their conversation about the Ukraine was secure and private, were caught disparaging the European Union in a phone call that was apparently bugged, and U.S. officials say they strongly suspect Russia of leaking the conversation. The suspicions were aired Thursday after audio of the call was posted to the Internet and amid continuing criticism of the United States in Europe and elsewhere over NSA spying on foreign leaders and U.S. They also came as the Russia-hosted Winter Olympics opened under tight security to prevent possible terrorist attacks and highlighted distrust between Washington and Moscow that has thrived despite the Obama administration’s attempt to “reset” relations with the Kremlin. The White House and State Department stopped just short of directly accusing Russia of surreptitiously recording the call between the top US diplomat for Europe, Victoria Nuland, and the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt. But both took pains to point out that a Russian government official was the first or among the first to call attention to the audio of the conversation that was posted on YouTube. The State Department said the incident marked a “new low in Russian tradecraft.” White House spokesman Jay Carney pointed to the Russian official’s tweet and Russia’s clear interest in what has become a struggle between pro-Moscow and pro-Western camps in the former Soviet Republic. “I would say that since the video was first noted and tweeted out by the Russian government, I think it says something about Russia’s role,” Carney told reporters. He would not comment on the substance of the conversa-
tion, in which the Nuland and Pyatt voices also discuss their opinion of various Ukrainian opposition figures. In the audio, voices resembling those of Nuland and Pyatt discuss international efforts to resolve Ukraine’s ongoing political crisis. At one point, the Nuland voice colorfully suggests that the EU’s position should be ignored. “F—the EU,” the female voice said. An aide to Russian deputy prime minister, Dmitry Rogozin, was among the first to tweet about the YouTube video, which shows photos of Nuland and Pyatt and is subtitled in Russian. In the tweet, posted some seven hours before existence of the video became widely known on Thursday, the Rogozin aide, Dmitry Loskutov, opined: “Sort of controversial judgment from Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland speaking about the EU.” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki did not dispute the authenticity of the recording and said that Nuland had apologized to European Union officials for her remarks. Psaki said, however, that Moscow’s apparent role in publicizing the video was “a new low in Russian tradecraft.” The YouTube video was posted on Feb. 4 and is titled the “Marionettes of Maidan” in Russian. Maidan is the name of the main square in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, which has become the center of opposition protests. In the audio, Nuland and Pyatt discuss their views of various opposition figures and whether or not they should take positions in the government. The U.S. has repeatedly denied allegations, many of them from Russian officials, that it is taking sides in the Ukraine crisis and Psaki repeated that stance on Thursday.

Leno first departure came in 2009, when he was briefly replaced by Conan O’Brien but reclaimed the show after a messy transition and O’Brien’s lackluster ratings. In ‘09, he was moving to a prime-time show on NBC; this time he’s out the door, and has said he’ll focus on comedy clubs and his beloved car collection. Looking sharp in a black suit and bright blue tie, Leno was greeted by an ovation from the VIP audience. The typically selfcontained comic betrayed a bit of nervousness, stumbling over a few lines in his monologue. He didn’t trip over his opening line, though — a final dig at his employer. “You’re very kind,” he told the audience. “I don’t like goodbyes. NBC does.” Leno brought his show full circle with Billy Crystal, who was his first guest in May 1992 and his last guest Thursday. Crystal played ringmaster at one point, calling on Oprah Winfrey, Jack Black, Kim Kardashian, Carol Burnett and
others for a musical tribute to Jay with a “Sound of Music” song parody. “So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye. If Fallon tanks you’ll be back here next year,” sang Jack Black. “The Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parson’s contribution: “We’ve watched you when we’re weary. Your great success is called the big chin theory.” In a videotaped segment, celebrities offered career advice to Leno. “Why would I give a (expletive) about what he does. He’s a grown man,” said Mark Walberg. President Barack Obama, like other politicians a favorite target of Leno’s, struck back in his clip. “Jay, you’ve made a whole lot of jokes about me over the years, but don’t worry, I’m not upset,” Obama said, adding that he was making Leno the U.S. ambassador to Antarctica. “Hope you have a warm coat, funnyman.” Crystal sang Leno’s praises during the show, saying the late-night host made America
feel a little better at bedtime and invoking his predecessor, Johnny Carson. Leno’s “Tonight” tenure was second in length only to Carson’s 30 years. “You were handed the baton by one of the all-time greats. But once it was in your grasp, you ran the race,” Crystal said. He and Leno, longtime friends, reminisced about the old days, with Leno recalling how Crystal and other comedians visiting his town, Boston, stayed in Leno’s apartment. “You’re calling it an apartment. I’m calling it a bomb site,” Crystal joked. Leno told how he was poised to make his network debut on Dean Martin’s show in 1974 when news came that President Richard Nixon had resigned in the Watergate scandal. Leno’s appearance didn’t happen. “Making me the last guy screwed by Nixon,” Leno said. Garth Brooks performed his touching song “The Dance” before Leno’s farewell remarks. “Now that I brought the room down,” Leno joked, he asked Brooks to lighten it up.
Another Brooks’ song, “Friends in Low Places,” closed out the show. “It’s going to be difficult to not come in and do a show every day for our audience who has been so great to Jay,” lamented Vickers, the executive producer. “And also hard for this group of people (the staff) who have all been together for 22 years,” said Vickers, who worked on Johnny Carson’s “Tonight” before taking the top job with Leno. Leno, 63, said he plans to continue playing comedy clubs, indulging his passion for cars and doing such TV work as comes his way — other than hosting on late-night. “It’s been a wonderful job. This is the right time to leave,” he said last week, and make way for the next generation. Fallon, 39, starts his “Tonight” Feb. 17, with NBC hoping he rides the promotional wave of its Winter Olympics coverage the next two weeks. Closing his final show on Thursday, Leno gave a final shoutout. It was to his wife of more than 30 years, Mavis: “I’m coming home, honey!”
New rules would ensure safety of infant formula
WASHINGTON (AP) — After nearly two decades of study, the Food and Drug Administration announced rules Thursday designed to make sure that infant formula is safe and nutritious. Most formula makers already abide by the practices, but the FDA now will have rules on the books that ensure formula manufacturers test their products for salmonella and other pathogens before distribution. The rules also require formula companies to prove to the FDA that they
Just as heart attack symptoms may differ between men and women, so do stroke risks. Now, the American Heart Association has issued its first guidelines for preventing strokes in women. They focus on birth control, pregnancy, depression and other risk factors that women face uniquely or more frequently than men do. The advice applies to patients like Denise Miller, who suffered a stroke last year that fooled doctors at two northeast Ohio hospitals before it was finally diagnosed at the Cleveland Clinic. She was 36 and had no traditional risk factors. “There was nothing to indicate I was going to have a stroke,” other than frequent migraines with aura — dizziness or altered senses such as tingling, ringing ears or sensitivity to light, Miller said. These headaches are more common in women and the new guidelines issued Thursday flag them as a concern. Miller recovered but has some lingering numbness and vision problems. Each year, nearly 800,000 Americans have a new or recurrent stroke, which occurs when a blood vessel to the brain is blocked by a clot or bursts. Stroke is the third-leading cause of death for women and the fifth-leading cause for men. The key to surviving one and limiting disability is getting help fast, and recognizing symptoms such as trouble speaking, weakness or numbness in one arm, or drooping on one side of the face. Stroke risk rises with age, and women tend to live longer than men. Women are more likely to be living alone when they have a stroke, to have poorer recovery, and to need institutional care after one. Certain stroke risks are more common in women — migraine with aura, obesity, an irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation, and metabolic syndrome — a combo of problems including blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar. General guidelines for stroke prevention currently focus on controlling blood pressure and diabetes, quitting smoking, more exercise and healthy diets. The new ones add gender-specific advice, said Dr. Cheryl Bushnell, stroke chief at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. She led the panel that wrote the guidelines, published in Stroke, a Heart Association journal. Some highlights: BIRTH CONTROL PILLS: Women should be checked for high blood pressure before starting on oral contraceptives because the combination raises stroke risks. The risk is small but rises steeply in women ages 45 to 49. More than 10 million American women use birth control pills. PREGNANCY: Strokes are uncommon during pregnancy but the risk is still higher, especially during the last three months and soon after delivery. The big worry is preeclampsia, dangerously high blood pressure that can cause a seizure and other problems. “It doubles the risk of stroke later in life and it quadruples the risk of high blood pressure” after pregnancy, Bushnell said. Women with a history of high blood pressure before pregnancy should be considered for low-dose aspirin (around 81 milligrams) after the first three months of pregnancy, and calcium supplements anytime, to lower the risk of preeclampsia, the guidelines say. Pregnant women with very high blood pressure (160 over 110 and above) should be treated with medications, and treatment may be considered for those with moderately high blood pressure (150 to 159 over 100 to 109). Certain blood pressure medicines are not safe during pregnancy, the guidelines note. ASPIRIN: It’s usually recommended for anyone who has already had a stroke unless the stroke was caused by bleeding rather than a clot, or if bleeding risk is a concern, Bushnell said. Aspirin also is often recommended for people with diabetes to lower the risk of stroke and other problems. A low-dose aspirin every other day “can be useful” to lower stroke risk in women 65 and older unless its benefit is outweighed by the potential for bleeding or other risks, the guidelines say. MIGRAINES: Women are four times more likely to have migraines than men, and they often coincide with hormone swings. Migraines alone don’t raise the risk of stroke, but ones with aura do. Using oral contraceptives and smoking raise this risk even more, so the guidelines urge stopping smoking. IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT: Women over age 75 should be checked for atrial fibrillation. Doctors do this by taking a pulse or listening to the heartbeat. MENOPAUSE: Hormone therapy should not be used to try to prevent strokes. The new guidelines put women’s issues “on the table” so more doctors talk about them, said Dr. Shazam Hussain, stroke chief at the Cleveland Clinic. “Gender does make a difference. The medical community has neglected it for some time.”

The majority of the check will go to schools — $410,860 to Lincolnview, $141,407 to Vantage Career Center and $857,513 for Crestview. This is just the first of 20 annual payments in these amounts. Over the course of the 20-year period, Vantage will get $2.8 million, Lincolnview $8.2 million and Crestview $17.1 million. Hite pointed out, “This is money that is going to go to local government funds and we cut local government funds at the state level to help balance the budget, so this is really for them and especially for our schools. When some of these checks come in for these schools, they’re discussing lowering their local tax rate, which is just fantastic.” Although this was the first monthly payment from Iberdrola in lieu of taxes, the company has already spread donations around the area. Checks have gone to the Van Wert County Junior Fair, the Van Wert Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Van Wert County Historical Society, the Peony Pageant, Junior Achievement and several other organizations. Iberdrola established a scholarship fund at the Van Wert County Foundation and put together a training program with Vantage. Also, more than $2 million is paid annually to around 250 land owners who are part of the project. “Probably the biggest partnership we
have had is with Vantage Career Center. We wanted some of the jobs from this project, the technicians, to be available for local people. So, we created the technician training program. We worked with Vantage to establish the curriculum that was relevant for industry employment. They began enrolling last fall and I think they’ll be graduating the first students at the end of this spring,” Litchfield shared. “The business model for Iberdrola Renewables is to own and operate for the long term, so we want to do things from that perspective and build relationships with people in the community because we have people here for a long time.” Litchfield reported that Blue Creek is operating pretty smoothly and since the cold weather has increased demand for electricity, the wind farm has been able to supply power on many of those frigid days. The wind farm has also been supplying electricity to Ohio State University’s Columbus campus since November. The company also has a research agreement with the university to do projects associated with different aspects of wind energy. Iberdrola plans to continue with wind farm development in Ohio, according to Litchfield. “We like the existing policy environment in Ohio. The laws that are in place now brought us here and focused our development from Indiana to Ohio,
so we’re working on developing some other projects nearby. On the eastern side of Van Wert County, a project (Continued from page 1) called the Dog Creek Wind Farm will connect to the same substation as “Seven of our nine locations just launched this year,” Blue Creek.

So we will keep working on those slowly but surely.” Litchfield did not give a date for the beginning of either project but estimated that the goal is within the next three to four years.

It is already law that formula must include those nutrients, which help babies stay healthy. But the new rules will help the FDA keep tabs on companies to make sure they are following the law. The rule would require manufacturers to provide data to the FDA proving that their formulas support normal physical growth and that ingredients are of sufficient quality.
