Kenyan missionary Ondiek returns to Trinity to share his vision
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor DELPHOS — Missionary Pastor Benard Ondiek of Wachara, Kenya, will be the guest speaker at 7 p.m. April 15 at Trinity United Methodist Church. Pastor Ondiek has already made a difference in the lives of many of his people by planting seven churches, founding a seminary and starting two orphanages. Ondiek Ondiek will tell of his work with orphans and widows and share stories of God using willing people to do extraordinary things — where they are and beyond. On April 15, he will challenge attendees to embrace a life of serving others. Ondiek’s homeland of Kenya has a high AIDS rate with nearly 65 percent of cases shown in women, according to the Kenya Ministry of Health. One dramatic impact of AIDS deaths is the decline in life expectancy. Pastor Ondiek’s work focuses on changing the lives of his countrymen. His book, “Benard’s Vision,” written by Beth Ann Morgan, will also be available for a donation. Readers will travel through Benard’s childhood, where he learned a thirst for knowledge and hungered for a way to help his people. As he buried himself in books with his much younger classmates, his dream of an education was put on hold at the age of 10, when he was removed from school to care for his ailing mother, a duty that fell on the youngest child in the family. Several years later, after the death of one of his brothers, Ondiek would return to the classroom and beyond to the United States. Ondiek earned his master’s in theology from Columbia International University. While taking classes there, he met Laura Wollenhaupt, granddaughter of Harold and Rosa Wollenhaupt, TUMC members, who live near Elida. Laura Wollenhaupt tutored him in English and with her friends, became a family for Ondiek, who had left his wife and children in Kenya, which is torn by tribal in-fighting, to come to the United States to earn his degree so he could return and help his people. Sadly, Wollenhaupt was killed in a car accident in August 2004. All are welcome.

Delphos residents can remove unwanted items from their homes by taking advantage of Allen County Refuse’s Big Item Pick Up from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday in the parking lot across from the Delphos Municipal Building. (Herald file photo)


ACR’s Big Item Pick Up set Saturday
ACR General Manager John Berens said Thursday. “The trucks that come through and empty the trash and recycle receptacles can’t take the bigger items.” Berens said he and his workers haul an average of 10 tons from Delphos the first Saturday of every month. “People seem to like it,” Berens said. “We have a lot of people who take advantage of it.” Users of the service will need to provide proof of residency in the form of a Delphos Utilities bill.

DELPHOS — Residents who have started their spring cleaning can unload those unwanted items from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday in the parking lot across from the Municipal Building on Canal Street. Allen County Refuse offers the program as part of their service to the city. “We hold the big-item pick-ups once a month so we don’t have to send a truck to Delphos every day,”

The collection includes furniture, mattresses, etc. ACR will not accept refrigerators, air conditioners, florescent light bulbs or building materials such as shingles or dry wall. According to Interim Safety Service Director Sherryl George, American Paint Recycles will not be at this pick up but will be at the May 3 pick up and there will be no charge for the disposal of latex paint. The only paint they accept is latex paint (interior or exterior), acrylic latex paint and water-based paint.

Mostly cloudy today with showers and a chance of thunderstorms this morning. A chance of rain showers throughout the night. Highs in the lower 60s and lows in the lower 30s. See page 2.

Budgeting core of financial literacy
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer DELPHOS — Financial literacy is much more than the ability to balance a checkbook, price compare or secure a job. It includes having a long-term vision and planning for the future and the discipline to use those skills every day. April is National Financial Literacy Month, a time to promote personal financial management and an opportunity for consumers to take advantage of programs that provide the resources people need to budget, save, invest and be fiscally healthy. First Federal Bank’s Community Banking Center Manager Cindy Metzger said it is never too early to start building a financial foundation. Establishing a relationship with a local banker is a great way to get started for any life stage. The big focus in the early stages is saving money. “Teens, college- and careeraged individuals should be cautious of spending,” she explained. “Many of them get their first taste of freedom and it’s easy to get wrapped up in not so good financial situations.” She said it is very important to get started with a budget and savings account in high school and college. “It is critical to make smart credit choices,” Metzger explained further. “Credit information is used by companies when hiring and by insurance companies for insurance premiums.” For example, Experian’s Fourth Annual State of Credit Study in 2013 shows that Millennials — 19-29-year-olds — are facing the biggest challenges when it comes to credit and how they are managing their debt. Even though they possess the lowest number of bank cards


‘Budgeting Basics’
A handful of people attended the SelfEnrichment Seminar “Budgeting Basics” presented Thursday evening by Superior Credit Union Financial Service Officer Alisha Reaman, left, and Financial Service Representative Jessie Copeland. The seminar, sponsored by The Delphos Inter-Faith Thrift Shop and Supper’s On Us, was geared toward helping individuals establish financial goals by structuring a personal budget and saving money by utilizing practical everyday savings tips.

and maintain a low total debt, their high utilization, average debt and high incidences of late payments indicate Millennials are not entering this phase of life with positive credit behavior. These factors attribute to their low average credit score of 628. For individuals with families and/or careers in their 30s and 40s, they may be looking at purchasing a house and want to continue building on a strong financial foundation. “New home buyers are so excited,” she said. “They need to start off on the right path.” Per the National Association of Realtor’s report, 73 percent of new home buyers — 52 percent were age 24-35 years old — used their own savings as a down payment. Metzger said at this stage, people may want to establish college savings accounts and college financing is a whole different world. See FINANCE, page 10

West of Kalida on U.S. Route 224

Today is Friday, April 4, the 94th day of 2014. There are 271 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 4, 1968, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., 39, was shot and killed while standing on a balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn. (James Earl Ray later pleaded guilty to assassinating King, then spent the rest of his life claiming he’d been the victim of a setup.) On this date: In 1818, Congress decided the flag of the United States would consist of 13 red and white stripes and 20 stars, with a new star to be added for every new state of the Union. In 1841, President William Henry Harrison succumbed to pneumonia one month after his inaugural, becoming the first U.S. chief executive to die in office. In 1850, the city of Los Angeles was incorporated. In 1859, “Dixie” was performed publicly for the first time by Bryant’s Minstrels at Mechanics’ Hall in New York. In 1864, in a letter to Kentucky newspaper editor Albert G. Hodges, President Abraham Lincoln wrote, “I claim not to have controlled events, but confess plainly that events have controlled me.” In 1912, China proclaimed a republic in Tibet, a move fiercely opposed by Tibetans. In 1933, the Navy airship USS Akron crashed in severe weather off the New Jersey coast with the loss of 73 lives. In 1949, 12 nations, including the United States, signed the North Atlantic Treaty in Washington, D.C. In 1960, Elvis Presley recorded “Are You

Lonesome Tonight?” in Nashville for RCA Victor. In 1974, Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves tied Babe Ruth’s home-run record by hitting his 714th round-tripper in Cincinnati. In 1975, more than 130 people, most of them children, were killed when a U.S. Air Force transport plane evacuating Vietnamese orphans crash-landed shortly after takeoff from Saigon. In 1983, the space shuttle Challenger roared into orbit on its maiden voyage. (It was destroyed in the disaster of Jan. 1986.) Ten years ago: Supporters of Muqtada al-Sadr, an anti-American cleric, rioted in four Iraqi cities, killing dozens of Iraqis, eight U.S. troops and a Salvadoran soldier. Five years ago: A gunman killed three Pittsburgh police officers responding to a domestic disturbance call; Richard Poplawski was later convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Police in Washington state found the body of James Harrison, who’d apparently shot to death five of his children, ages 7 to 16, at their mobile home in Graham. NATO leaders appointed Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen the alliance’s new secretary-general during a two-day, 60th-anniversary summit in Strasbourg, France. One year ago: Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed into law sweeping new restrictions on weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines similar to the ones used by the young man who’d gunned down 20 children and six educators in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. At least 72 people were killed in the collapse of an eight-story residential building being constructed illegally near Mumbai, India’s financial capital. Pulitzer Prize-winning film reviewer Roger Ebert, 70, died in Chicago.

Student charged after shot fired at Kent State Wildlife “rescues” often do more harm than good
KENT (AP) — The Kent State University freshman who prompted a campus lockdown when he shot himself in the hand during a domestic dispute remained jailed Thursday on a concealed weapon charge, campus police said. The man fired only once Wednesday night during some sort of dispute with two female students, Police Chief John Peach said. No one else was hurt. The suspect, 24-year-old Quavaugntay Tyler of Cleveland, told police he had a gun because he’d previously been an armed robbery victim, Peach said. Tyler was taken into custody at a hospital where he sought treatment for his wounded hand. Peach said the exact reason Tyler fired the weapon was not immediately clear. Tyler then fled to a residence hall to ask a friend for help in hiding the weapon before he went to the hospital, Peach said. The weapon was found and the friend has not been charged, according to the chief. Tyler has been the subject of a campus theft investigation and was on probation from a separate theft case in a different jurisdiction, Peach said. He described Tyler as being cooperative with investigators. It took about two hours for authorities to give the all-clear Wednesday night after the university advised people to stay put while investigators searched for the suspect. The school said Tyler is a student in criminology and justice studies. His case could be evaluated for possible action under the school’s student conduct rules separate from any criminal matter, said the dean of students, Dr. Shay Little. Kent State is a public research university in Kent, a city of about 30,000 residents less than an hour’s drive southeast of Cleveland. The university has eight campuses around the northeast Ohio region, the Kent campus being the largest. It is known for another shooting that occurred decades ago. On May 4, 1970, the Ohio National Guard opened fire on Kent State students protesting the war in Vietnam. Four students died and nine were injured in the shootings, which contributed to the change in the public’s attitude toward the war.


Wildlife officials discourage handling young animals
Information submitted FINDLAY – The spring season has arrived and so too has the season for Ohio residents to enjoy spotting young and sometimes seemingly abandoned wildlife. Each year, Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife officials offer simple advice. Please leave wildlife alone and enjoy wildlife from a distance. A wild animal is capable of biting, scratching and transmitting diseases and parasites to humans and pets. More often than not, baby animals are not abandoned and the parents will retrieve their young, especially when left alone by humans. “When a wildlife biologist or a wildlife officer receives a call regarding a seemingly abandoned fawn for example, the first thing we suggest is to take the animal back to where it was found,” stated Scott Peters, wildlife management supervisor for northeast Ohio. “Many wild animals are raised by only one adult or are not tended to during the daylight hours. A doe will hide her young from predators by leaving it alone in a secluded spot, such as a grassy meadow or a flower bed. A hidden fawn has virtually no scent and when left alone is difficult for predators to find. The doe tends to the fawn several times each night.” State and federal laws

Charges accuse 2 teens of cancer scam theft
BOWLING GREEN (AP) — A northwest Ohio prosecutor says two teenage boys accused of soliciting donations for nonexistent cancer patients have been charged with theft as juveniles. Wood County Prosecutor Paul Dobson tells The Courier in Findlay that investigators are still trying to determine how much money the teens collected through the alleged scam. Police say the two Elmwood students visited homes in Hancock and Wood counties, asking for donations for a cancer-stricken student or teacher from their district. Authorities say there was no such person. Dobson alleges a 17-yearold student came up with the scheme and got help from a 14-year-old student. Elmwood Superintendent Tony Borton says it wasn’t a sanctioned solicitation effort. Borton says information will be provided to verify the authenticity of future school fundraisers.


Libertarian’s request to be on ballot denied

COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio Supreme Court on Thursday denied a request from a Libertarian candidate seeking to force the state’s elections chief to place his name on primary ballots. Last month, Secretary of State Jon Husted disqualified attorney general candidate Steven Linnabary from the May 6 ballot. His decision came after Linnabary’s nominating petitions were successfully challenged on two grounds: that a signature gatherer failed to comply with Ohio law requiring that he be either Libertarian or politically independent and that he disclose his employer. Linnabary’s attorneys sought to have the state’s Supreme Court compel Husted to certify his candidacy, arguing that the man who protested Linnabary’s petitions lacked standing to do so. They also said state law does not require certain petition circulators to disclose employment because they are independent contractors. Attorneys for the state had told the justices that among other arguments, Linnabary’s petition circulators should have revealed their employment, regardless of whether they are “employees” or “independent contractors.” “This is a simple case about a candidate who did not follow the law — a law that is

plain in its meaning, that is easy to comply with, and that serves an important purpose,” attorneys for the state wrote in a court filing last month. The high court said in its Thursday ruling that Husted reasonably interpreted Ohio law. Linnabary’s attorney, Mark Kanfantaris, said he was disappointed with the decision. He said it conflicted with previous state rulings allowing circulators to submit signatures without declaring an employer. “This deprives Ohio voters of choice and this is neither right nor fair,” Kanfantaris said. Separately, the Libertarian Party of Ohio is appealing a federal judge’s order in an effort to get its gubernatorial candidate, Charlie Earl, on the May ballot. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati has said the court will take quick action on the party’s overall request to allow Earl to appear on primary ballots. He also was disqualified on the grounds that two of his petitioners failed to properly disclose their employers. Earl’s candidacy would have the potential to draw votes from Republican Gov. John Kasich, who likely will face Democratic challenger Ed FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga County executive.

Feds to manage uranium enrichment project
COLUMBUS (AP) — The U.S. Department of Energy plans to begin managing a southern Ohio uranium enrichment project overseen by a company that filed for bankruptcy last month to restructure debt. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz told a U.S. House Appropriations subcommittee Wednesday in Washington that the department will take over the American Centrifuge Project in Piketon, The Columbus Dispatch reported. Management would be done through its Oak Ridge (Tenn.) National Laboratory. Ohio’s senators have helped lead support for funding for the project, saying it is needed for national security and domestic energy supplies and can be a boon for an economically struggling region. The project also has critics in Congress who say it’s costly and unnecessary. Money for the federally funded research effort runs out this month. Moniz said the technology and intellectual property must be protected and that the government must consider how to meet national security obligations moving forward. The department is trying to determine how to reprogram $57 million to keep the operation running. “We have to keep it going this year,” Moniz said. “Frankly, it would be very, very desirable to make sure we keep our 120 machines spinning.” He indicated the project’s current operator, USEC, still would be involved, possibly as a subcontractor. “The scope is being determined,” said Paul Jacobson, a spokesman for the Bethesda, Md.-based company. Last month, USEC filed a 60-day warning with Ohio that it might lay off workers. The company has nearly 250 employees in Ohio. USEC said at the time that the filing doesn’t mean layoffs will occur, but that it had notified the state that they could potentially involve more than 50 jobs.

AEP customers to pay for postwindstorm fixes
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio regulators have decided American Electric Power customers will be charged a bit more over the next year to pay for over $57 million in repairs after severe windstorms in summer 2012. The Columbus Dispatch reports the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio approved a payment agreement that was opposed by consumer advocates at the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel. The plan put together by the utility, the regulatory commission and other groups calls for funding the repairs through set monthly charges that won’t vary based on customers’ energy use. Households will pay an extra $2.34 per month, and business will owe $9.67 monthly. The total is about $6 million less than AEP’s initial requested.

protect and regulate wildlife and endangered species in Ohio. Only licensed wildlife rehabilitators, working under special permits issued by the Division of Wildlife, may possess and care for native wild animals. The ODNR Division of Wildlife offers the following advice: — Think before you act. Check for nests before cutting down trees or clearing brush. It is best to cut trees and clear brush in the autumn when nesting season is over. Observe the animal from a distance for at least a few hours before calling officials for advice. You might witness adults tending to or retrieving the young. — Leave the animal in the wild. If you disturb a nest, wear gloves and replace the young animals and the nest material to the original location or as close as possible. It’s a myth that wildlife parents will not tend to young because of human scent. Wildlife parents are devoted and most birds cannot even smell. — Keep pets under control so they do not raid nests and injure wild animals. Keep pets inoculated against parasites and diseases. — Educate children to respect wildlife and their habitat. Emphasize to your children not to handle wild animals. — Contact your local wildlife official before taking action. Trust and follow the advice of these trained professionals. Call 1-800-WILDLIFE or visit to be connected with the proper individuals.

Give Your Life Completely to God
It is a commonplace in conversion narratives for people to say that they wanted to hold back something in their life from God, some small area of their life that they refused to give up to God. Many have said that they refused to completely give their lives to God for fear that they would be missing out on some worldly pleasure. People contemplating religious vows know that they will be giving up having a family, acquiring wealth, and perhaps also their independence. But this holding on to our old lifestyle, including all the trappings of both material and social wealth only prolongs the bondage. Ironically, we are only truly free when we completely give our lives over to God, holding nothing back. Give your life completely to God and you will find complete joy. If you are holding back something from God, some area of your life that you refuse to let go of, then you are still in shackles and really are missing out on the complete experience of living for God. –Christopher Simon

So give yourselves completely to God. Stand against the devil, and the devil will run from you. Come near to God, and God will come near to you. You sinners, clean sin out of your lives. You who are trying to follow God and the world at the same time, make your thinking pure. James 4:7-8

In the Waiting Room ...
It is finally April and spring is in the air. I hope so anyway. It has seemed like a long time coming this year and we really deserve the nice weather. It was quite a winter we had but now we can say we survived the “Polar Vortex of 2014.” With spring comes children learning to ride their bicycles and skinned knees, proms and broken hearts and graduations and graduation parties. It is a time of passages. A time when our kids get ready to transition from one grade to another, sometimes from one school to another. It is always an exciting time, but the changes can also leave you a little sad. Even when you are proud and a little relieved that your child is going to graduate from high school, it can be a little hard to believe that the little child with the pudgy fingers and dirty face that you were just pushing on a swing yesterday is now getting measured for a cap and gown. Where does the time go? Time seems to move in fits and starts. One minute dragging on forever as you look forward to the time when your child can get himself ready for school in the morning. The next whizzing by as you realize that that same kid is now driving himself to school in the morning. Where does the time go? One minute the little girl whose biggest joy was finding a dress for her American girl doll, is now looking for the perfect dress for the prom. Where does the time go? As a parent the hardest transition is when we stop being the catalyst for the changes that are happening in our children’s lives and become merely

Where does the time go?

spectators. It is hard to make that transition. For some parents it is harder than for others. Our kids do their best to push us out of the way. After all, teenagers are obnoxious for a reason. It is much easier to let go of a hulking teenager who communicates with you by grunting and shrugging their hunched shoulders (who, by the way, look exactly like the images of cro-magnon man in the evolution pictures), than it is to walk away from the cute innocent faced child who hugged you with gratitude when you bought them their favorite box of breakfast cereal. Where does the time go? My son is in that transition phase, between the cute kid with loud laugh and the cro-magnon with the ear buds in his ears and a perpetual scowl. He still depends on me to drive him everywhere, sometimes it seems like half of my life is spent driving him from school to practice to games, and then to and from his friend’s houses. Won’t it be much easier when he learns to drive? That time will come soon enough. Much too soon for me. For right now I am happy in the driver seat. The view is pretty good and I love the company (even if it isn’t always pleasant). Dr. Celeste Lopez graduated cum laude from The University of Utah College of Medicine.

RPM off to strong start after offseason upgrades
Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Richard Petty, still mourning the death of his wife, skipped the short trip to Martinsville Speedway to watch his team compete. At the track located a little over an hour south from Petty’s famed race shop, his two drivers set out to capture a victory in honor of the late Lynda Petty and their boss, “The King.” Marcos Ambrose and Aric Almirola fell short of driving their way into Victory Lane on Sunday. But for just the fourth time in 77 races as teammates, both Richard Petty Motorsports drivers finished inside the top 10. Ambrose led 22 laps en route to his season-best finish of fifth and Almirola was eighth. It marked the second time in three races the duo both finished inside the top 10, and showed the RPM has turned a corner in its bid to recapture some of its glory days. “We have a brand here at our race team and it is Richard Petty Motorsports and it is ‘The King’ and all that he has accomplished. We want to live up to that,” said Almirola. “We want to get back to those successful ways that they have had for so many years. Obviously we have been through some tough times and we are clawing our way back to where we need to be and we see the light now. “It was pretty dark a few years ago but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel and if we continue to run like me and Marcos have run, in the top five and top 10 and challenging and leading races and challenging to win races, you can only do that so many times before you start winning races.” Petty, a Hall-of-Famer, won 200 races and seven championships for Petty Enterprises. The organization has won just three races since John Andretti’s 1999 victory and went through a 10-year losing streak. The organization has not won since 2012 but an offseason commitment from sponsor Smithfield helped RPM add personnel and invest in equipment, testing and research and development. Those gains have been evident through the first six races of the season. Ambrose is 14th and Almirola is 26th, in part because of two accidents Almirola was involved in. Each driver has two top-10 finishes, Ambrose has two top-5s and Almirola finished a career-best third at Bristol. It’s the best start in seven Sprint Cup seasons for Ambrose and it comes a year after Almirola raced out of the gates, when RPM was ill-equipped to have both teams competing at the same level. “I am never happy when we go to the race track and the two cars are as distant apart as they were last year with Aric running in the top 10 and Marcos struggling and crashing and just not finishing races and being where we needed to be,” said RPM competition director Sammy Johns. “This year, with the additional engineering we have added and the personnel and equipment, we are able to have both cars running together on the race track and working the best together that I have ever seen the two of them work on the race track. Ambrose credits the increased commitment to testing and the development of his relationship with crew chief Drew Blickensderfer, who joined RPM in late 2012, and spent this past offseason making personnel moves that have strengthened the team. “This business is all about details. You aren’t going to do it with a 25-pound spring change on race day; you will do it by everybody having the attention to detail and commitment to being the best they can,” Ambrose said. “You have to rally the troops around your team and there are a lot of people that play a part in our success on Sunday and we are very mindful of that and Drew is great at getting people up and getting them committed.” Almirola has a new crew chief in Trent Owens, who guided Kyle Larson in the Nationwide Series last season at Turner Scott Motorsports. Although Owens is Richard Petty’s nephew, Almirola and Johns had to work hard to lure him to RPM. “He was being courted by a few other teams but we were able to get it done and we got him over here on our team and I feel like we stole the best crew chief out of the Nationwide garage,” Almirola said. If RPM can sustain this performance, win a race or two and maybe even a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, the drivers believe it would be a significant payback to Petty. “This is the one place I have come to drive a race car that made me feel like part of the family,” Almirola said. “That is the way they run their operation and race team. It has been a family run business since the ’40s and ’50s and it is still that way today. Richard comes in here and puts his arm around everybody and makes them feel like they are a part of the Petty family.”


Fun tournament, cloudy future for NCAA
By EDDIE PELLS Associated Press ARLINGTON, Texas — The tournament that began with the lure of a billion-dollar bracket will end at a billion-dollar stadium outside of Dallas. Big as March Madness and the Final Four have become, they’re not big enough to blot out the storm clouds on the horizon. The NCAA has issues looming — among them, the possible unionization of players and a lawsuit challenging the NCAA’s ban on paying players. If the NCAA loses either case, it would threaten almost everything. That includes its most lucrative and intoxicating event: The basketball tournament, which is celebrating best-in-a-generation TV ratings, a record number of overtime games and a staple of bigname programs in the Final Four — Florida, Wisconsin, Connecticut and Kentucky. “If the NCAA loses, you’ve opened a Pandora’s box that will generate problems, questions and concerns for decades,” says Arthur Miller, the chairman of New York University’s Sports and Society program. “It may be the end of the NCAA. It certainly will reduce the power of the NCAA.” For the last three weeks, the NCAA’s sway over America has been strong as ever. The average 9.8 million viewers are the highest in 21 years. The 6.2 rating is tied with last season as the best for the tournament since 2005. The NCAA’s 14-year, $10.8 billion TV contract made every game available on a national telecast and there was plenty to watch, including a record-tying seven overtimes and about as many games that came down to a made or missed shot at the buzzer. Meanwhile, Warren Buffett’s offer of $1 billion to anyone who could fill out a perfect bracket served to bring more casual fans into the mix. Nobody won the billion. But the billions really at stake are those the NCAA distributes to its member schools from the TV deal. That cash makes the system run and it is in limbo while the unwieldy organization, made up of 351 schools with very different missions, tries to resolve issues on several fronts. “It doesn’t look good for them,” said civil engineering professor Timothy Ross, the University of New Mexico’s representative at the reform-minded Coalition on Intercollegiate Athletics. “They don’t have much of a leg to stand on. The whole situation gets worse and worse every year. Coaches make more money, universities make more money, the way the athletes are treated is a joke. It’s embarrassing from a university standpoint.” Last week, a regional director of the National Labor Relations Board ruled that Northwestern football players had a right to unionize and likened college players to full-time employees. Players are seeking better health care and more protection after they graduate, along with a stake in the profits. There are similar stakes involved in the lawsuit filed by former UCLA player Ed O’Bannon. The trial is scheduled for June and an NCAA loss there could force a complete rewriting of the current relationship between the NCAA, its schools and their players. Even staunch supporters of the current system agree changes are afoot. “You can’t ignore all the litigation,” said Chuck Neinas, a longtime college sports leader who most recently served as interim commissioner of the Big 12. “There is a need for some changes. The auto industry is always trying to improve their model. College athletics should do the same. But the basics are still sound.” Earlier this year at the NCAA convention, ideas were shared about giving the five power conferences — ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC — more autonomy within the current system. Some are hoping a new model will be in place by this spring.

Cardinals beat Reds 7-6 to take 2 of 3 in series
Associated Press CINCINNATI — The defending National League champions opened the season with a lot of waiting. And a couple of wins, too. The St. Louis Cardinals overcame another long delay and Todd Frazier’s two homers on Thursday, holding on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-6 and take two out of three in their season-opening series. The first pitch was delayed 3 hours, 42 minutes because of rain. Some of the Cardinals spent their down time by studying Cincinnati’s pitchers again and getting a little extra work in the indoor batting cages. “It’s tough to stay mentally into it,” said Matt Adams, who had a single and a pair of doubles. “That’s what we had to do to make sure we could go out there and perform. We’re watching video and taking swings in the cage and stretching and making sure we’re ready to go.” Finally on the field, the Cardinals emerged from their two-game hitting slump by knocking Homer Bailey (0-1) out of the game in the fifth inning. Jhonny Peralta homered to get it going. It wasn’t perfect — St. Louis stranded eight runners — but it was much better. “We had a lot of opportunities that we missed, too,” manager Mike Matheny said. “We had a lot of guys in scoring position.” St. Louis pulled away with three runs in the seventh, when Matt Holliday’s single off the top of the outfield wall was upheld by the only video review of the series, this one initiated by the umpires. Lance Lynn (1-0) gave up Jay Bruce’s 2-run homer and Frazier’s solo shot during five innings. Frazier added a 3-run homer in the seventh that cut it to 7-6. Trevor Rosenthal got the last four outs for his second save. The series involved nearly as much waiting as playing. There was a 2-hour, 40-minute delay before Wednesday’s game, a 1-0 victory by Cincinnati. Along with the delay on Thursday, the teams wound up waiting 6 hours, 22 minutes to play during the two days. As Thursday’s delay stretched on, Reds reliever Sam LeCure tweeted: “Uncle.” “The whole series was kind of weird with all the rain and stuff,” Frazier said. “It really put a damper on things.” The starters had a rough time after the delay. Lynn beat the Reds three times last season but couldn’t get a 1-2-3 inning on Thursday. Bruce and Frazier hit back-toback homers in the first for a 3-0 lead. Even Bailey had a single off Lynn, who gave up eight hits while throwing 107 pitches. Peralta hit a 2-run homer in the second off Bailey and the Cardinals tied it with a break-through hit in the fourth. Adams doubled and came around on Jon Jay’s double, the Cardinals’ first hit with a run-

A key goal would be to make it possible for players at bigger schools to receive a stipend. The idea of a $2,000 stipend was on the table but got voted down by smaller schools that don’t have huge moneymaking basketball and football teams to buttress the entire athletics program. If those reforms don’t go through, there’s a chance the five conferences might peel away, much the way the big powers did in college football three decades ago. “That’s not a preferred option on any of our parts,” said Harvey Perlman, chancellor at Nebraska who chairs the new college football playoff board. “But if we can’t achieve something within the organization, as I say, some of these threats to us are existential and we could be forced into a circumstance where we don’t have any choice.” A split like that would end the NCAA tournament as we know it. What’s March Madness, after all, without the prospect of a Butler or Dayton or Wichita State crashing the party? Though the four teams at this Final Four are all considered “big,” UConn is a 7 seed and eighth-seeded Kentucky, of all teams, has managed to shape an underdog story of its own: Ultra-talented freshmen almost implode, before embracing the team concept and making their run.

NOTES: The game ended 7 hours, 23 minutes after it was originally scheduled to start. … Shelby Miller starts for the Cardinals in Pittsburgh today against Gerrit Cole. Mike Leake goes for the Reds in New York against the Mets’ Jenrry Mejia. … Adams dived into the stands trying to catch a foul ball, and pushed a fan who reached up and caught it before he could get it. “I was trying to stop myself from going into the stands,” Adams said. “People came up to me and said I shoved him. I didn’t even know. I’m not that type of guy to go after anybody.” … It was Frazier’s fourth career multihomer game. … Hamilton walked in the eighth inning, reaching base for the first time this season. He is 0-for-12 with six strikeouts.

ner in scoring position this season. They had been 0-for-17. Jay’s hit also extended his hitting streak to 15 games, including the end of last season. Holliday’s first hit of the season, an RBI double, put the Cardinals up 4-3 in the fifth. Bailey lasted only 4 1/3 innings, giving up seven hits, three walks and four runs. The Cardinals added three in the seventh, when they loaded the bases on a pair of walks and Holliday’s single off the top of the wall. The ball went over Billy Hamilton’s glove and deflected to Bruce, who caught the ball. The umpires correctly ruled that it a hit off the top of the wall and a 2-minute, 8-second review initiated by the umps upheld the call. They wanted to make sure the ball hadn’t cleared the wall. Allen Craig and Yadier Molina followed with RBI singles as St. Louis pulled ahead 7-3.

Mickelson among leaders at Houston Open
Associated Press HUMBLE, Texas — Phil Mickelson did more than prove to just himself that he’s ready for next week’s Masters on Thursday. The 5-time major winner showed to everyone that he’s fully recovered from last week’s muscle pull and likely to be a factor in this week’s Houston Open as well. Without so much as a practice round this week at the 7,441-yard Golf Club of Houston, Mickelson opened with a 4-under par 68 and was among the leaders following Thursday’s opening round. The bogey-free performance was a far cry from last week when Mickelson was forced to withdraw during the third round in San Antonio after pulling a muscle in his right side “I’m surprised because I was worried about the Masters,” Mickelson said. “I was certainly worried about Houston but it healed a lot quicker. I felt great today; didn’t feel any pain or discomfort and didn’t even think about it.” Mickelson is three shots back of firstround co-leaders Bill Haas and Charley Hoffman, both who finished at 7 under. Hass had five birdies on his back nine, while Hoffman needed just 27 putts to earn a share of the lead. Keegan Bradley and Matt Kuchar lead a group of five golfers at 6 under. J.B. Holmes, Erik Compton and Jim Renner are also at 6 under, with 10 golfers are at 5 under. Of the 144 players in the field, 113 finished at even par or under on an overcast and occasionally misty day. “The greens are absolutely perfect,” Haas said. “… I think the scores are reflective on that. They were a little slower, but part of that, too, is the weather. It was like a little dewy mist out there all day, which played a part in the speed of the greens.” Mickelson and Bradley were part of a threesome with Webb Simpson, who also finished 4 under. All three players in the group navigated the course without a bogey in their morning rounds. Former world No. 1 Rory McIlroy, playing in the afternoon and one of the five top-10 players in the world in the tournament, finished with a 2-under 70. While Haas and Hoffman shared the lead after Thursday’s play, it was Mickelson — who was forced to withdraw during last week’s third round in San Antonio after pulling a muscle in his right side — who was the center of attention leading into next week at Augusta National. Mickelson has won the Masters three times, the latest coming in 2010, but his status was in doubt following last week’s injury. The left-hander, however, underwent treatment in the days following his departure from San Antonio — along with fitting in two days of light practice at Augusta National — and appeared in top ball-striking form on Thursday. “One of the things I really worked on hard today was staying focused on each shot,” Mickelson said. “… I needed to play here this week and really challenge myself in that regard to give myself the best chance for next week.” Opening on the back nine at the former Redstone Golf Club, which was renamed the Gold Club of Houston following an ownership change, Mickelson was bogey free despite needing 31 putts. He made the turn at 2 under following a 16-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th, and he birdied both of the par 5s on his back nine to put himself squarely in contention. Mickelson won the Houston Open in 2011, and the course’s Masterslike setup — including slick greens and tight rough — is a key reason he’s returned every year since. “He was striking it, he was hitting it long and great,” Bradley said of Mickelson. “… He seems like it was feeling a lot better today than it was in San Antonio.” Kuchar, who finished tied for fourth at last week’s Texas Open, had three straight birdies in the middle of his round on Thursday — highlighted by a 47-foot birdie putt on the 445-yard par-4 second hole. McIlroy, one of five of the top 10 players in the world in the field, was as low as 3 under before a pair of bogeys on the back nine. World No. 10 Dustin Johnson withdrew following an opening 8-over par 80.
pin positions weren’t that hard. We actually had a lot of birdie chances.” Se Ri Pak birdied her final hole to match Wie at 67. The 36-year-old Pak won the last of her five major titles in 2006. “Just a solid round,” Pak said. “The greens got a little firmer but I got pretty good distance control.” Angel Yin, a 15-year-old high school freshman from the Los Angeles suburb of Arcadia, was another stroke back at 68 with Amy Yang. Wie birdied the par-5 ninth and par-4 10th, made a 25-foot eagle putt on the par-5 11th and moved into a tie for the lead with a 15-foot birdie putt on the par-4 12th. She got up-and-down for par from near a steep face in a bunker on the par-4 15th, hitting to 1½ feet with her left foot almost 2 feet above her right. Wie is making her 12th start in the tournament. She was ninth in 2003 at age 13, fourth the following year and tied for third at 16 in 2006. Wie has two LPGA Tour victories, winning the 2009 Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico and the 2010 Canadian Women’s Open. She has been in the top 16 in all five of her starts this year, finishing a season-best fourth in Thailand. “I’m so grateful to have rounds like these,” Wie said. Feng won the 2012 LPGA Championship to become the tour’s first Chinese winner and had two victories late last year. She tied for 16th last week in the Kia Classic. “The beginning of this year I was kind of a little lost because I lost a little weight and my swing kind of changed a little,” Feng said. “I wasn’t swinging very comfortably.” Paired with 58-year-old Hall-of-Famer Amy Alcott, Feng rebounded from a bogey on 15 with a birdie on par-4 16th and closed with two pars. Alcott shot an 81 in her 36th start in the event she won in 1983, 1988 and 1991. In 1988, she became the first player to take the now-traditional victory leap into Poppie’s Pond. “She was very sweet starting off and we were talkative,” Alcott said. “She hits it very solid. Just a very, very talented young player. I was very impressed with her putting and just her overall game, just how she managed herself on the golf course.” Anna Nordqvist, the winner last week in Carlsbad for her second victory of the year, opened with a 71. Playing partner Stacy Lewis, the 2011 winner, had a 73. She struggled off the tee, hitting drives to the right. “The good thing is I’m hitting my irons well and hitting some good putts,” Lewis said. “If I can straighten out my driver I’ll be right there.” Sixteen-year-old Lydia Ko also shot 73. Karrie Webb, also a 2-time winner this year, was in the group at 73 and defending champion Inbee Park had a 74. Park is struggling with her putting after dominating on the greens last year when she swept the first three majors and won six times.

Shanshan Feng leads Kraft Nabisco RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — Michelle Wie let a couple of shots slip away late Thursday afternoon in the Kraft Nabisco Championship, leaving her a shot behind Shanshan Feng. Tied for the lead after playing a four-hole stretch in 5 under, Wie lipped out a 3-foot par putt on the par-3 17th, then settled for par and a 5-under 67 after her wedge approach released long on the par-5 18th. “I’ll take it,” Wie said. “I’ll take a 67 here.” Feng shot a 66 in perfect morning conditions at Mission Hills in the first major championship of the year. The 24-year-old Chinese player had seven birdies and a bogey. “This morning, it was playing easier because there was no wind,” Feng said. “The

You’ve been invited to an antisocial
Almost every day, I hear parents and grandparents and people on television complain about how cellphones, smartphones, texting, streaming, Facebooking, tweeting and computer games are turning our children into little unsocial robots who won’t be able to function in the real world. The real world of cellphones, smartphones, texting, streaming, Facebooking, tweeting and computer games. And do you think you could get a job in today’s world by bragging on your resume that you don’t know how to text and don’t use email? What’s odd is that people on television and the people who watch it never seem to blame television itself for turning us into antisocial robots. Do you watch TV during dinner? Do you watch TV in the bedroom? Is there a lot of talking going on while you and/or your spouse watch a four-hour football game? Have you ever tried having a conversation with someone who is watching “SportsCenter”? Do you blab all the way through “NCIS: Wherever” and “Dancing With the Stars You Never Heard Of”? Do you talk all the way through movies you are watching? If you do, most people would rather you texted. But that’s not always true, either. Recently, some guy shot another guy dead for texting during a movie. As if texting during a movie is rude, but shooting someone to death for texting during a movie isn’t. “Whatever happened to talking to each other?” I hear people ask, as if every word they say is some kind of rare pearl, which comes only from a oneof-a-kind oyster that lives in a remote ocean off a faraway land. In reality, their own last, very social words were, “Have you seen the remote control? It was right here a second ago.” Is that a quote from Plato?

The Village Idiot
Marcus Aurelius? Dante? Shakespeare? Shaw? Such elevated conversation, the kind that people who text and talk on their smartphones will never be able to have because they won’t have learned any of the social skills that people who grew up without smartphones and “Candy Crush” did. My friend, Marv, is one of those who think that cellphones, texting and email are turning us into a nation of tech idiots. I was behind him at the checkout line of the supermarket last week. After first asking the clerk why two avocados cost $4.12, and then explaining that the price of the sauerkraut on the shelf was different than the price on the flier, he pulled out his wallet and found the exact bills he needed. Then he scrounged around in his pockets to find the exact change. After about 30 seconds, it turned out he didn’t have the exact change, so he put all his money back and pulled out a big bill and handed it to the cashier. In the other lane, while all this was going on, two 20-somethings waved their smartphones at something on the counter and walked out with their purchases in 2 seconds. No printed receipt, no conversation, no polite chitchat with the cashier, no social interaction at all. Just what you’d expect from antisocial tech heads -- so unlike Marv, who was engaging the young clerk with real conversation. Behind me, some woman kept tapping her foot like she was in some kind of rush. Just as Marv gets his receipt, she says into her cellphone, “My water just broke,” and the cashier, a 16-year-old boy, said, “You want to go back and get another?” Marv snorted his indignation. “In my day,” he said, “a clerk would have gone and gotten that lady another water. Manners -- I guess there’s no app for that!” (Contact Jim Mullen DISTRIBUTED UNIVERSAL UCLICK UFS at

Letterman ‘wrapping Argument may have preceded things up,’ to retire in 2015
deadly Fort Hood attack
WILL WEISSERT Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — David Letterman’s departure from the late-night realm won’t just end an unmatched run on television. It also will close the book on an era reaching almost to the birth of TV. During a taping of Thursday’s edition of “Late Show,” Letterman startled his audience with the news that he will step down in 2015, when his current contract with CBS expires. He specified no end date, saying he expects his exit will be in “at least a year or so, but sometime in the not too distant future — 2015, for the love of God, (band leader) Paul (Shaffer) and I will be wrapping things up.”

Nick Curth was the winner from Webelos 2 Den.



FORT HOOD, Texas — The soldier who killed three people at Fort Hood may have argued with another service member prior to the attack, and investigators believe his unstable mental health contributed to the rampage, authorities said Thursday. The base’s senior officer, Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, said there is a “strong possibility” that Spc. Ivan Lopez had a “verbal altercation” with another soldier or soldiers immediately before Wednesday’s shooting, which unfolded on the same Army post that was the scene of an infamous 2009 mass shooting. However, there’s no indication that he targeted specific soldiers, Milley said. Lopez never saw combat during a deployment to Iraq and had shown no apparent risk of violence before the shooting, officials said. The 34-year-old truck driver from Puerto Rico seemed to have a clean record that showed no ties to extremist groups. But the Army secretary promised that investigators would keep all avenues open in their inquiry of the soldier whose rampage ended only after he fired a final bullet into his own head. “We’re not making any assumptions by that. We’re going to keep an open mind and an open investigation. We will go where the facts lead us,” Army Secretary John McHugh said, explaining that “possible extremist involvement is still being looked at very, very carefully.”

(Continued from page 1) “This is the time frame when families should be prepared for the ‘what if ’s’ — and pray that it doesn’t happen — by budgeting on a single income in case they lose an income, spouse, or insurance,” she said. Empty-nesters are people who are not yet retired and are approaching or have surpassed 50 years of age. “They have the funds for retirement and have that life event in their sights,” Metzger said. “They are being conservative so they are able to live comfortably.” She said this is the opportune time for people to sit down with a financial

planner and adjust investments to meet financial targets and enjoy what they have worked so hard for — the fruits of their labor. One of the huge concerns for retirees is medical costs. They may have their house paid off and have to restructure debt to get any financial demand paid off. “It’s also the time for estate planning so that funds and assets are distributed the way people want it to happen,” she said. In general, people should know how much they are spending and what they are spending their money on per month.

Answers to Thursday’s questions: The taped voice of acting legend John Wayne was used in creating the gibberish spoken by Garindan, the longnosed Kubaz spy in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Sound man Ben Burtt found Wayne’s voice on some old film studio tapes and used a synthesizer to distort it. The dumpster got its name from its inventor George Dempster, who invented the construction debris container in 1935 and called it the Dempster-Dumpster. Today’s questions: Who officiated at the marriage of the Owl and the Pussy-cat in the famous nonsense poem by Edward Lear? What color is named for French Impressionist artist Claude Monet? Answers in Saturday’s Herald. The Outstanding National Debt as of Thursday evening was $17,583,370,148,084. The estimated population of the United States is 317,952,536, so each citizen’s share of this debt is $55,302. The National Debt has continued to increase an average of $2.76 billion per day since Sept. 30, 2012.


What he’ll be wrapping up is three decades on the air — the longest tenure of any late-night talk show host in U.S. television history — since he launched “Late Night” at NBC in 1982. But more than that, he’ll be ending a lineage of latenight hosts who pioneered talk and humor in the wee hours — Johnny Carson, of course, and, before him, Jack Paar and especially Steve Allen. Ironically, they were all on NBC, the network that denied Letterman the “Tonight Show” crown he sought and, after he lost out to Jay Leno, prompted him to pitch his tent at CBS as Leno’s rival.
