Vantage partner in regional grant


Information submitted

VAN WERT Vantage Career


Center will receive grant funding to
help plan a program that will assist
adults 22 years and older in earning their high school diploma, while
completing an industry credential.
The goal of this project is to provide a template of services to reduce
barriers, to help those seeking a high
school diploma and occupation skills.
Five regional grants were awarded in
Ohio, and Vantage is a partner in the
Northwest Ohio region.
The collaborative will be launched
July 1, 2015. This collaborative supports the State of Ohios effort to
improve the workforce delivery system in Ohio. Local career centers
include: Apollo Career Center, Four
County Career Center, and Penta
Career Center. The latter will coor-

dinate the grant and serve as fiscal


agent for $500,000. Other participating educational institutions include
Northwest State Community College
and Rhodes State Community
College.
Together these institutions will
plan a comprehensive system to serve
Northwest Ohio adults. Assistance

from local Ohio Means Jobs centers, chambers of commerce and


economic development agencies will
be included. Participation with local
business and industry partners will
be critical to the success of this initiative. Participants will be reaching out to employers in their area
to determine immediate and future

workforce needs and to design curriculum around those needs to deliver


certified and credentialed workers.
The grant funds available are for
the planning phase of the pilot program, and participants are asked to
develop a plan to sustain the service after it is implemented. Vantage
will continue to address the needs
of area adults in Paulding, Van
Wert, Putnam, and Mercer counties
during the implementation phase of
this project through its current training programs. Adult Basic Literacy
Education (ABLE) services will continue at Vantage in partnership with
Apollo Career Center, which offers
adults the opportunity to build literacy skills. In addition, Vantage will
also provide credential testing at its
Assessment Center.

Robins braving the frigid temps

Many robins have come out of hiding to brave the frigid temperatures. Reader Valerie Parent caught this rather plump robin in her back yard. Contrary to popular
belief, robins do not always fly south for the winter. According to birdsleuth.org
from the Cornell Lab of Orinthology, they hide among the trees. Food, not the temperatures, determine if they seek warmer climates. (Submitted photo)

TODAY IN HISTORY
Associated Press
Today is Thursday, Feb. 19, the 50th
day of 2015. There are 315 days left in
the year. This is the Lunar New Year of
the Goat.
Todays Highlight in History:
On Feb. 19, 1945, Operation
Detachment began during World War
II as some 30,000 U.S. Marines began
landing on Iwo Jima, where they commenced a successful month-long battle to seize control of the island from
Japanese forces.
On this date:
In 1473, astronomer Nicolaus
Copernicus was born in Torun, Poland.
In 1881, Kansas prohibited the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages.
In 1915, during World War I, British
and French warships launched their initial attack on Ottoman forces in the
Dardanelles, a strait in northwestern
Turkey. (The Gallipoli Campaign that
followed proved disastrous for the
Allies.)
In 1934, a blizzard began inundating the northeastern United States,
with the heaviest snowfall occurring in
Connecticut and Massachusetts.
In 1942, President Franklin D.
Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066,
clearing the way for the U.S. military to
relocate and intern Japanese-Americans
during World War II.
In 1959, an agreement was signed
by Britain, Turkey and Greece granting
Cyprus its independence.
In 1963, The Feminine Mystique
by Betty Friedan was first published by

W.W. Norton & Co.


In 1976, calling the issuing of
Executive Order 9066 a sad day in
American history, President Gerald R.
Ford issued a proclamation confirming
that the order had been terminated with
the formal cessation of hostilities of
World War II.
In 1984, the Winter Olympics closed
in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia.
In 1985, the British soap opera
EastEnders debuted on BBC
Television.
In 1997, Deng Xiaoping, the last of
Chinas major Communist revolutionaries, died at age 92.
In 2008, an ailing Fidel Castro
resigned the Cuban presidency after
nearly a half-century in power; his
brother Raul was later named to succeed
him.
Ten years ago: Eight suicide bombers struck in quick succession in Iraq
in a wave of attacks that killed dozens.
Former Presidents George H.W. Bush
and Bill Clinton visited a Thai fishing
village that had been devastated by
the December 2004 tsunami. The USS
Jimmy Carter, the last of the Seawolf
class of attack subs, was commissioned
at Groton, Connecticut.
Five years ago: In a televised 13-minute statement, golfer Tiger Woods
admitted infidelity and acknowledged
receiving therapy. The FBI concluded
that Army scientist Bruce Ivins acted
alone in the 2001 anthrax mailings that
killed five people, and formally closed
the case. Pope Benedict XVI approved
sainthood for Mother Mary MacKillop,

One year ago: President Barack
Obama, in Mexico for a North American
summit, urged Ukraine to avoid violence against peaceful protesters or face
consequences; shortly after Obamas
remarks, Ukrainian President Viktor
Yanukovychs office said he and opposition leaders had agreed on a truce. On

Super PAC launching


for Sen. Portman's
'16 re-election
COLUMBUS (AP) A
super PAC capable of raising
unlimited donations is being
launched to help Republican U.S.
Sen. Rob Portman as his Ohio
race for re-election heats up.
Barry Bennett is serving
as campaign manager for the
Fighting for Ohio Fund. He
says it aims to raise $5 million
to $10 million for Portman
independently from his campaign committee.
Its contributions and
expenditures must be publicly disclosed. Paperwork was
being filed Wednesday.
The move comes as former Gov. Ted Stricklands
self-imposed deadline nears
for announcing whether hell
enter the race. Thirty-yearold Cincinnati city councilman P.G. Sittenfeld is already
seeking the Democratic nomination.

INFORMATION SUBMITTED
The Ohio Mental Health and
Addiction Services has awarded the
Putnam County Educational Service
Center a competitive 2014-15 Prevention
and Wellness Grant.
This $100,000 initiative provides
funding for the training of an additional 50 PAX Pre-school through second
grade classrooms in Putnam County as
well as on-going classroom support to
PAX classrooms through trained PAX
Partners (coaches). Data analysis will be
provided by the Center for Assessment
and Evaluation Services, BGSU.
On Dec. 3, 14 teachers from
Columbus Grove, Continental, Glandorf,
Ottawa, Leipsic and the Putnam County
Educational Service Center received
training and materials for classroom
implementation. A second training will
be available on March 25 and open to
teachers, support personnel in the nine
local districts and licensed pre-school
teachers.
The PAX Good Behavior Game
(Embry, 2002) is a series of strategies implemented by classroom teachers that build brain health in children.

These strategies come in the form of


specific classroom practices based on
the light behaviorism principles of the
Good Behavior Game, backed by over
thirty years of continuous longitudinal
study by Johns Hopkins, with the addition of the implementation of five evidenced-based kernels (Embry & Biglan,
2011) and four research-based cues
(Embry, Flannery, Vazsonyi, Powell, &
Atha, 1996). The result is a behavioral
vaccine, a recipe packed with researchbased components interwoven perfectly
and packaged in a manner that teachers
can carry out every day as a part of
their daily activities that have resounding effects on their classrooms and the
futures of their students.
The strategies have become greatly
sought after in the elementary schools,
as they are not an additional curriculum,
but a system for teachers to carry out
daily tasks with the class such as reading
a story, taking a spelling test or walking
to the drinking fountain in soft team
competitions that increase students
self-regulation, decrease impulsivity
and delay gratification in a manner that
produces powerful and lasting outcomes
both in the classroom and throughout

their lives.
When implemented during the developmental stages of grade school, the
PAX Good Behavior Game has significant long-term outcomes. Students in
classes incorporating PAX/GBG showed
a reduction in symptoms of ADHD,
ODD, and PTSD.
In a longitudinal study, the program
also demonstrated long-term mental
health benefits including: a 50-percent
drop in drug dependence in males, a
68-percent drop in smoking in males,
a 35-percent drop in alcohol abuse in
all students, and a 50-percent drop in
suicidal thoughts in females (Kellam et
al., 2011).
Introducing the evidenced-based kernels and utilizing the cues dramatically
impacts the brain chemistry of students
that provide a lifetime of increased
self-regulation and delayed gratification
that promotes the peace, health, happiness and productivity of all.

the PAX Good Behavior Game please

234,507 people in Ohio signed up


for coverage through Marketplace
INFORMATION SUBMITTED
On Sunday, the second year of Open Enrollment came
to a close with 234,507 Ohio consumers selecting a plan or
being automatically reenrolled in quality, affordable coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Nationwide,
about 11.4 million Americans selected Marketplace plans or
were automatically re-enrolled, including about 8.6 million
people in the states that use the HealthCare.gov platform
(such as Ohio), and about 2.8 million in the State Based
Marketplaces based on those states preliminary data.
We had a strong open enrollment. About 11.4 million
Americans signed up or were automatically re-enrolled in
affordable, quality coverage nationwide since November
15, HHS Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell said. And in the
final day, more new consumers signed up for health coverage than on any other day this Open Enrollment or last.
In the 37 states using HealthCare.gov, nearly 8 in 10 consumers had the option of getting covered for as little as
$100 a month or less with financial assistance that lowered the cost of their monthly premium. The Affordable
Care Act is now an important part of the everyday lives
of millions of Americans. They finally have the financial

and health security that comes with affordable health


coverage. They now can fill prescriptions and take their
children to the doctor. Some no longer have to choose
between paying for health care and paying their utility
bill. While we have more work to do, the numbers tell
the story, and the story is clear. The Affordable Care Act
is working, and families, businesses, and taxpayers are
all better off as a result.
Five Facts about Open Enrollment in Ohio:
At the end of Open Enrollment on Sunday, 234,507 Ohio
consumers had selected a plan or were automatically re-enrolled.
2.84 percent of Ohio consumers who were signed up as of
Jan. 30 qualify for an average tax credit of $247 per month
through the Marketplace.
In Ohio, consumers could choose from 16 issuers in the
Marketplace in 2015 up from 12 in 2014.
Ohio consumers could choose from an average of 54
health plans in their county for 2015 coverage up from 30
in 2014.
75 percent of Ohio Marketplace enrollees as of December
2014 could have obtained coverage for $100 or less after any
applicable tax credits in 2015.

AGRIBUSINESS

Marestail causes problems for soybean production


BY JAMES HOORMAN
Putnam County Extension Ag Educator
news@dlephosherald.com
Marestail has quickly established itself as
the number one problem weed in soybean
production. Marestail (Conyza canadensis) is
a native annual plant belonging to the aster
family. A mature plant is upright and generally three to five feet tall. The main stem is
ridged and covered with long white hairs.
Narrow leaves about three to four inches
long alternate around the stem giving the
plant a cylindrical or columnar-like appearance. Large number of seeds (200,000) will
develop and become windborne and spread
to other locations. Seeds will emerge from
late summer into fall and from late March
through June.
Young plants will remain in a low-growing
rosette stage through late April, followed by
stem elongation (bolting) and growth to an
upright mature plant. Plants that emerge the
previous fall will start bolting earlier than
spring-emerging plants. See identification
pictures of marestail at various growth stages:
www.ppws.vt.edu/scott/weed_id/erica.htm.
Why has marestail so quickly become a
problem weed? It is very well adaptive to

the soybean cropping environment. First,


marestail seeds only germinate on or near
the soil surface. Most of our soybeans are
planted into cornstalks without any tillage
so weed seeds have an ideal environment for
germination and early growth. Tillage would
bury the seeds and prevent germination and
emergence the first year but if tillage is done
again, the seeds reemerge. Most marestail
seeds only survive about two to four years
in the soil. Second, most of the farmers
plant Roundup Ready (glyphosate) Soybeans,
which has encouraged them to heavily rely
on an herbicide program that controls weeds
after soybean planting.
Burndown programs often do not eliminate all of the large weeds and farmers rely
on later application of glyphosate to control
these weeds. The control problem occurs
because glyphosate is not effective on marestail plants that have already bolted and
produced elongating stems higher than six
inches. In addition, many marestail populations have become glyphosate resistant and
resistant to ALS inhibitor herbicides (Classic
and First Rate).
To control marestail, use fall herbicide
treatments to control emerged plants. For fall
applications, use 2,4-D as the base herbicide

to control marestail, and combine it with one


of the following to ensure control of other
winter weeds: glyphosate; dicamba (or premix - Brash, WeedMaster, Outlaw, Rifle);
Basis; Express; a low rate of Canopy/Cloak
EX or DF; or metribuzin. Do not overspend
on fall treatments. Keep the cost of herbicides
in the $6 to $15 range.
Apply effective burndown herbicides in
spring. Do not plant into existing stands of
marestail. Start weedfree at the time of planting by using one of the following preplant
herbicide treatments, applied when marestail
plants are still in the rosette stage. Use
2,4-D ester plus glyphosate (1.5 lb ae/A) plus
Saflufenacil product (Sharpen or Verdict plus
MSO (1% v/v).
Include residual herbicides with the burndown treatment for residual control of marestail until the soybean leaf canopy develops.
Residual herbicides include Valor, Valor XLT,
Envive, Enlite, Fierce, or Gangster, Authority
First, Sonic, Authority XL, Authority
Broadleaf, Authority Assist, Authorit Maxx,
or Spartan. Metribuzin products include Metri
DF, Tricor, etc (at least 8 oz/A, and preferably 10 to 12 oz/A), but do not exceed
recommended rate for soil type per the label.
Add metribuzin to other metribuzin-con-

taining products to bring total metribuzin


rate to 0.38 to 0.5 lbs ai/A. Products here
include: Boundary/Ledger, Canopy/Cloak DF,
Intimidator, Matador, Authority MTZ.
Thus, if the marestail weed is not controlled
early, there is no herbicide option a farmer
may use that will effectively control it later in
the crop season, resulting in reduced soybean
yields. The herbicide 2,4-D is probably the
most effective, however, farmers are reluctant
to use 2,4-D because in order to prevent crop
injury they have to wait at least seven days
before they can plant soybeans. LibertyLink
soybeans are the most effective tool for management of herbicide-resistant marestail, especially in fields with high marestail populations.
Use Liberty (29 to 36 oz/A) or Liberty plus a
metribuzin-containing herbicide.
Herbicide programs must consist of a
spring burndown to ensure soybean fields are
free of marestail by planting time and residual
pre-emergent herbicides to ensure marestail
control for another six to eight weeks. The
extension publication, Control of Marestail in
No-till Soybeans, provides specific information on herbicide selection, timing and rates.

By JOHN SEEWER
Associated Press
TOLEDO -- Ohio lawmakers approved new rules for
farmers and water treatment plant operators that are
designed to reduce the spread of algae blooms in Lake
Erie that last year contaminated the drinking water for
more than 400,000 people.
The state Senate on Wednesday unanimously approved
the legislation that also would move Ohio toward ending
the dumping of dredged sediment in the lake.
The bill, which still needs to clear the House, would
be the legislature's first step toward tackling the algae
since toxins from the blooms left residents around
Toledo and in southeastern Michigan without water for
two days in August. The blooms also have been linked
to oxygen-depleted dead zones in the lake where fish
can't survive.
The measure would stop farmers in most cases from
spreading manure on frozen or wet farm fields while
also setting new rules on dumping material dredged
from harbors and rivers along the lake. Both are thought
to be a source of the phosphorus in Lake Erie that feeds
the algae.
Water plants would also be required to monitor phosphorous levels under the bill.
Both the Ohio Farmers Union and the Ohio
Environmental Council have said the changes are good
first steps, but they also said they were disappointed
that the new rules can expire after five years. They also
argued against provisions that allow farmers to spread
manure on fields in a few instances when the ground is
snow-covered.
Leaders in the legislature and those within Gov. John
Kasich's administration have said one of their top priorities this year will be tackling the toxic algae problem.
"Saving Lake Erie requires a new sense of urgency,"
said Randy Gardner, a Republican from northwestern
Ohio. "We know our task isn't finished today."
Research has shown that farm fertilizer is one of the
main sources of phosphorus in the lake. But how much
is from livestock farmers spreading manure onto frozen
fields isn't clear.
The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation had been against
banning farmers from putting manure on frozen fields,
but the organization has changed course and now supports the proposal.

Colorado mountain snow is bright


spot during drought in West
By DAN ELLIOTT
Associated Press
DENVER -- Snowpack in the mountain valleys where the Colorado River
originates was only a little below normal on Wednesday, marking one of the
few bright spots in an increasingly grim
drought gripping much of the West.
Measurement stations in western
Colorado showed the snowpack at 90
percent of the long-term average.
By contrast, reporting stations in the
Sierra Nevada range in drought-stricken
California showed snowpack at 50 percent or less in early February, the most
recent figures available. Some detected
no snow at all.
Mountain snow in Colorado is closely
monitored because a half-dozen Western
waterways, including the 1,400-mile
Colorado River, start in the area. The river
and its tributaries supply water to millions
of people in seven states and Mexico.
Much of the river comes from mountain snow that accumulates during winter and melts in the spring.
"It's looking pretty dismal over much
of the West, but there are some areas
where we're OK," said Mike Strobel,
manager of the U.S. Department of

Agriculture's Snow Survey, which uses


about 2,000 reporting stations in the
western U.S. and some in Canada to
measure snow.
Mountain snow depth usually peaks
in early April across the West. However,
it's unlikely many of the hardest-hit
mountains will get enough precipitation
by then to recover, Strobel said.
In the Pacific Northwest, warm temperatures have brought rain instead of
snow, so the mountains aren't accumulating snowpack for the spring runoff, when
farmers and water managers need water
to irrigate crops and refill reservoirs.
Snow accumulation in the Rocky
Mountains in Colorado, Wyoming and
Montana has been relatively good.
Snowpack in the Colorado valleys that
feed the east-flowing South Platte River
were at 102 percent of average.
"Not spectacular, but not miserable,
either," Strobel said.
Even in Colorado, the picture
is mixed. Statewide, including the
Colorado River, the South Platte and
six other basins, the snowpack stands at
78 percent of normal, with the parched
southwest corner at 56 percent.
It would take half again the normal
amount of snowfall between now and

April to bring the statewide snowpack


up to average, said Brian Domonkos,
who supervises the snow survey in
Colorado.
The Colorado River Basin isn't accumulating snow as quickly as it was
earlier in the season, Domonkos said
Wednesday at a meeting of the state
Water Availability Task Force, which
monitors drought conditions.
"It's been pretty dry since about the
beginning of February," he said.
The Colorado update came after calls
for increased multi-state cooperation in
the Colorado River basin due to the
prolonged drought. The basin is home
to 40 million people and 4 million acres
of farmland.
Lake Mead in Nevada is the key measuring point of water in the Colorado
River system, which also includes the
Green, San Juan and Gila rivers and
some 55 dams and diversions. The lake
dropped to historic levels last year after
almost 15 years of regional drought.

and 40 million visitors a year, gets 90

country but if it were reversed and who we


consider to be terrorists were shooting our
people from a clandestine spot from afar,
there would be outrage. We are all human
beings.
I wasnt blown away by this movie.
Maybe my research on it
beforehand tarnished my
opinion. I did enjoy the
awareness drawn to PTSD,
although I wish it had been
explored further, and I think
there is something to be
desired as far as character
development is concerned.
I did find the ending to
be incredibly sad. I cried. I
actually sobbed the whole
way home, thinking about
how tragic it all is, how
unfair it is, how war is so
senseless and unnecessary.
The live footage of Kyles
funeral procession was perhaps the most moving thing
Ive seen in a movie. It was
also the first movie Ive been
to when, at the end, the theater was dead silent. I mean, dead silent.
I have an even greater respect for our
veterans after watching American Sniper,
and I feel we dont do nearly enough not
even close to help them and take care
of them. It was eye-opening. It makes me
want to help and do my part, any part I can.
They deserve better. So much better. More
soldiers die from suicide than in combat.
Thats an issue. We need to take PTSD very
seriously, and start appreciating our vets and
giving them the love, care, and gratitude
they so deserve. Maybe you can do your
part, too. Start by watching this movie.

I recently saw American Sniper. I had


read an awful lot about the movie going into
it, and although its not exactly my kind of
movie, its my husbands kind of movie, and
its hard for us to find any movies to agree
on, so I agreed to see this. I was intrigued
anyway, and kind of wanted
to see it.
I tried to go into the
movie without any preconceived notions, though it was
difficult. Id read all the articles detailing Chris Kyles
memoir and the fact that he
had lied several times in it,
somewhat diminishing his
credibility. (If you havent
heard this, research it.) Im
not a fan of war (and I dont
think anyone is) but I do find
it an indescribably noble
act for men and women to
risk their lives to protect
our freedoms. I didnt find
the film to be pro-war, as
some have claimed. I actually found the opposite. I
came away from the movie
feeling as though Eastwood deconstructed
the hero myth and somehow managed to
keep it nonpolitical. If anything, I found
the movie to be anti-war. The focus for me
was on the post-traumatic stress disorder
which affects endless veterans. And again,
though I havent read Kyles book, I kind
of want to now, as Ive heard his narrative
and thoughts differ quite drastically than the
way his character is portrayed in the movie.
Michael Moore came under fire for calling snipers cowards, and to risk the backlash I might get from this, I see his point.
It is not cowardly to risk ones life for his

Ombudsman training offered


INFORMATION SUBMITTED
LIMA The Area Agency on Agings Long-Term
Care Ombudsman Program serves the elderly population
receiving long-term care. This includes residents of nursing
homes, assisted living facilities, and some in-home care. An
Ombudsman visits residents; learns their needs, desires, and
problems; and advocates for the rights of these residents.
The agency covers seven counties: Allen, Auglaize,
Hancock, Hardin, Mercer, Putnam and Van Wert counties.
Volunteers are needed in each county to service this vulnerable
population. Training sessions will be starting soon to certify
volunteers as Ombudsman Associates.
Volunteers who pass a background check will receive free
training and the support needed to be effective in this role.
To register for this training, or for more information,
please contact Heidi Pence, Volunteer Coordinator, by e-mail

Jays, Wildcats, Pirates tune


up for mat tournaments

Musings

By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
Does it seem 14 years since the death of Dale The
Intimidator Earnhardt Sr. during the Daytona 500 doing
the thing he loved; racing fast cars?
I can still remember thinking that he was going to
walk away from it like the tough old bird he was, like he
had been through the car wash and would barely have a
scratch on him.
I and a number of my friends that had been watching
the race couldnt believe the news that he had died from
the wreck. We were calling each other, wondering if we
were seeing things.
Turns out we werent.
Ever since that day, NASCAR has been on a needed
crusade to try and make things better and safer for the
guys and gals that drive the machines that go fast, make
lots of money and hopefully give fans what they wish for.
They are still making tweaks as I suppose they
always will in how they go about their business.
NASCAR has gone through some tougher times in the
process: for example, there are empty seats at racetracks
and the ratings havent been as good as they once were;
and perhaps that was partly due to the efforts to try and
make it safer, along with the economy going into the
doldrums.
In the minds of fans, things maybe werent dull but
they didnt seem as thrilling and competitive as before;
perhaps because of the effort to make it safer, the game
had lost something else that aggression, fearlessness,
whatever you want to term it, which made racing worth
paying good money for and the industrys stars to become
heroes.
Racing officials have altered the way they crown a
champion a few times to address this more or less
accepted but not unanimously and last years more
race-to-win-no-matter-who-gets-hurt format seemed to
bring more of the thrill back into it.
It sure seemed controversy heated up way more last
year than in the past, just what NASCAR clearly wanted.
I guarantee you, they didnt mind the fights, the shoving, the heated comments and arguments that ensued.
That made the latest race on any given Monday fodder
for the company watering hole.
See MUSINGS, page 7

DELPHOS Its about


getting wrestling matches at
this time of year, especially
as the second season nears.
Whether you are loaded
with inexperienced wrestlers,
such as Jefferson and Bluffton,
or have a relatively veteran
crew like St. Johns, getting
good competition is always of
paramount importance.
That was the reason behind
the tri-match held at Robert A.
Arnzen Gymnasium Wednesday
night involving host St. Johns,
Jefferson and Bluffton.
The host Blue Jays defeated the Wildcats 39-30 and
bested the Pirates 37-30.
Jefferson belted Bluffton
45-24.
We each had room for one
more tri-match on our schedules and kind of threw this
together in the middle of last
week. All three of us coaches
got together after weigh-ins
tonight and decided to really
match up and get our guys
good matches, Jays coach
Derek Sterling explained. As
a coach, you dont want to
lose anything, be it a dual or
an invitational; youre always
out for a win. My guys really
focused on this the last couple
of days of practice and wrestled well. Everybody is eyeing the end-of-season tournaments and you still have time
to correct your mistakes and
get better before they start.
One of the more thrilling matches in the Blue Jay/
Wildcat tussle was at 285,
when the Jays Andrew
Shawhan rallied with a
5-point span in the last 15
seconds to force an overtime
and then got a takedown of
Jayden Moore with a mere
4.7 ticks left in OT to get the
12-10 triumph.
Jefferson coach Mike
Wilson pointed to other match-

es as ones that stood out.


We had a lot of young guys
wrestle well and get beat: Josh
Kroeger wrestled well and got
beat (Brett Vonderwell); Lane
Bennett wrestled well and lost
(to Alex Haunhorst), as did
David Grant (Justin Siefker),
Wilson said. Im proud of
those young men in what
they did tonight. The more
matches we can get for our
guys, especially the younger
guys, the better. As a wrestling
coach, we always want to get

better as individuals we
have high expectations for our
guys and look to keep on
improving all the time.
Another thriller that went
the way of the Wildcats came
when Jacob Harvey overcame
a 14-5 third-period deficit in
the 152-pound clash versus
the Jays Patrick Stevenson
with an escape, a takedown
and eventual pin at 5:05.
For Bluffton mentor Jeff
Kleman, a senior-less roster
can always use more mat time.

We are basically all new from


last year; we have one returning
District qualifier, he added. We
have the typical growing pains
and lessons to be learned for a
young and inexperienced team.
For us, that is a lack of continuing
focus; we simply lose it during
matches. It will eventually come
and thats why we accepted the
chance to be in this tri-match;
every match is gold.

Cleveland East Tech removed


from girls basketball tournament
INFORMATION SUBMITTED
COLUMBUS The Cleveland East
Technical High School girls basketball
team has been removed from the Ohio
High School Athletic Association postseason tournament for violating the regular-season contest limitation regulation,
OHSAA Commissioner Dr. Dan Ross
announced Wednesday.
Leroy Carter, athletic administrator
for East Tech, notified the OHSAA
of the violation on Tuesday. High
School basketball teams are permitted
to play 22 regular-season games. The
Scarabs, which had received the No. 1 seed
in their Division II district tournament and
were receiving votes in the latest Associated
Press state poll, ended the regular season last
Saturday with a 19-4 record, thus playing one
more game than is permitted.
One of the basic regulations for all our
sanctioned sports is how many regular-season
games are permitted, Ross said. This is a
very unfortunate violation when it happens
and the penalty is severe, but our member
schools have said that playing more games
than permitted definitely gives a team a com-

Last year: Bubba Watson shot 64-64
on the weekend to beat Dustin Johnson
by two strokes. Watson also won the

last year.
Last week: Brandt Snedeker won the
AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for
the second time in three years, beating
Nick Watney by three strokes. Snedeker
finished at 22-under 265 to break his own
scoring record in the tournament.
Notes: Watson, Johnson and
Snedeker are in the field along with
Jimmy Walker, Jordan Spieth, Sergio
Garcia, Bill Haas, Hunter Mahan, Ernie
Els, Fred Couples and Jim Furyk.
Haas won the 2012 tournament. He won
the Humana Challenge last month in La
Quinta. Couples is making his record
33rd start in the event. He won in 1990
and 1992. Wake Forest freshman Will
Zalatoris won the inaugural Northern

Monday to earn a spot in the field. The
2014 U.S. Junior champion shot 4-under
67. Ben Hogan won three times at the

petitive advantage. We want to thank the East


Tech administration for handling this in a
professional manner and we trust this will not
happen again at the school.
Leonard Jackson, commissioner of athletics for the Cleveland Metropolitan School
District and the Senate Athletic League, of
which East Tech is a member, said the
violation was not done maliciously but
agreed that the regulation and penalty
are clear.
The member schools of our conference are committed to following
OHSAA bylaws and regulations and
East Tech brought this matter forward
as soon as it was discovered, Jackson said.
East Tech will accept the penalty and we
know that the school and all members of our
conference will learn from this situation.
East Tech was to have hosted No. 12 seed
Cleveland Collinwood Saturday in a sectional
semifinal contest. That line on the bracket
will be vacated and Collinwood will advance
to a sectional final at No. 11 seed Ashtabula
Edgewood Feb. 26. East Tech must also
reimburse the officials fees to the Northeast
District Athletic Board for the three officials
who were assigned to work that contest.

Notes: The tournament is part of the
European Tour for the first time. Lahiri,
Chawrasia, Jeev Milkha Singh, Arjun
Atwal, Jyoti Randhawa, Rashid Khan
and Shiv Kapur top the Indian contingent. Lahiri won the Malaysian Open two
weeks ago. Randhawa won the national
championship in 2000, 2006 and 2007.
Spains Miguel Angel Jimenez is in the
field. He won a Champions Tour event
last month in Hawaii. The Joburg
Open is next week in South Africa.

NFL Combine Day 1: The


doctor will see you now
By JIM LITKE
Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS

Prospective NFL draftees


dont flinch at benching 225
pounds until exhaustion or
trying to beat their personal
best at the 40-yard dash. They
do dread one sentence: The
doctor will see you now.
The NFL combine began
Wednesday with orthopedic
and medical exams for 320
draft prospects, all of whom
gave blood and were subjected to X-rays and
impact testing to
establish a baseline
for subsequent concussion tests the
night before. Players
were asked to bring
medical records and
information on any
conditions or family
history i.e., a heart
condition that might affect
their ability to play.
During the exams, some
will be reminded of injuries
long ago forgotten, others
about fractures they didnt
know they had. One or two
will learn their path to a pro
career ends in an examination room, because of ailments ranging from undetected heart conditions to joint
injuries beyond repair.
Small wonder young men
who dont fear collisions
with hard-hitting linebackers or fullbacks get nervous
thinking about several hours
being gently poked, probed
and questioned by a battery of
experts, all trying to predict
how well the players will last
in this brutal sport.
A rundown on the days
medical sessions:
THE DOCTOR IS IN
AND IN AND IN:
A group of 15-20 players
enters the first of six orthope-

dic exam rooms in the basement of Lucas Oil Stadium


at 8:30 a.m. Inside each are
orthopedic doctors and head
athletic trainers representing
five or six teams. Nearby is
a portable MRI machine provided by Methodist Hospital.
Each players medical history, with detailed reports on
previous surgeries, is presented to the panel during open
discussion. All information
is shared and there are follow-up questions if necessary
directed by specialists on
shoulder, knee and
foot injuries, etc.
and more X-rays if
requested.
The only thing
proprietary about the
process is the grade
each team gives
every player, said
Dr. Matt Matava,
who runs the medical
operation for the St. Louis
Rams and is president of NFL
Physicians Society.
Each team uses its own
grading scale, generally from
A-F or 1-5. Doctors consider
previous injury history and
current medical condition,
and attempt to make a judgment of each players longevity. An overwhelming majority fall into the C range,
since most have been injured
and operated on at least once.
We might see up to two
dozen As every year, but
thats mostly kickers laughed
Matava, whos working his
15th combine. Otherwise,
theyve got to have remarkable genes and be really, really lucky.
Sessions average 20-30
minutes; each group of players moves on to a second
room for a second orthopedic exam, then repeats it
four more times for the other
groups of teams.

Musings

Think anything will change this year?


I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you cheap! if you
think it will.
In fact, I think as the drivers are more used to it and have a
better idea of what to expect, I believe you will see even more
controversy perhaps a few more fights, threats, paybacks,
etc. and NASCAR will be even more pleased as the ratings
go up and those empty seats get replaced with warm bodies.
The only way that will change is if someone really gets
hurt or perish the thought but remember what started this
column even gets killed.
If that were to happen and how many of us fully expect
that to happen one of these days during one of the major races?
After all, they are driving cars meant to go at high speeds with
sometimes bumper-to-bumper traffic, where just a slight mistake can mean disaster, safer gear notwithstanding all bets
are off and NASCAR wont hesitate to make quick changes.
Football has done the same thing with its stated intentions
of making the game safer for its players and has had its share
of controversy in the process.
Lets face it; how many of us have not uttered the famous
or infamous line of put a dress on him when watching
a game and an outrageous penalty has been called because a
defender breathed too hard on a quarterback?
Players have had their share of criticism about the changes,
especially defenders, and I think some of them are very valid.
At the same time, you can only take so much of the danger
out of the game.
You think of this: they have done research on the impact of
some of the hard hits on the bodies of football players, both the
giver and the receiver bigger, stronger, faster but still very
much human and they have been likened to the damage of
a car wreck.
There are many such hits during any given game, some of
them involve the same person, game in and game out.
As I have written before and there is a current lawsuit
involving Pop Warner football in Wisconsin, to go along with
the continuing saga of the NFL and many of its former players
one has to wonder if we are not beginning to see the end of
footballs heyday and its decline.
If each class that comes through a school loses a player or
two because of fear, I fear that drip will inevitably become an
avalanche and we will see it sooner rather than later.

Like Gordon, other NASCAR


drivers closing in on retirement
Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. Bobby
Labonte looks around NASCARs
motorhome lot and sees the makeover
coming.
It was just a few years ago that the
place was devoid of children. The playground was empty. There were no toys
scattered about. Few, if any, sounds of
children echoing across the rows of luxury buses. It was a clear indication how
young the sport had become.
Now, though, there are kids everywhere. To Labonte, that means change is
on the horizon. All those young drivers
have grown up, have families and have
started getting old, at least by NASCAR
standards.
Four-time Cup champion Jeff Gordon
has already announced that 2015 will be
his last as a full-time driver and theres
a sense that several others could follow
him out the door.
Were starting to see it cycle
through, Labonte said.
Ten Sprint Cup regulars, including
Gordon, are at least 36 years old heading
into this season. And although salaries
are nearly as good as ever and the cars
and tracks are certainly safer than ever,
there is growing speculation that some
of the elder statesmen are closer to calling it quits than outsiders might think.
The trends already started, former
NASCAR crew chief and team owner
Ray Evernham said. Were not going
to be able to reverse it. A lot of its got
to do with the technology of the cars, the
fact that these kids are coming younger
and younger now. You used to have to
have experience and have that book (of
knowledge). A guy at 50 could still win
races and challenge for championships.
Evernham said thats not the case
anymore.

Mortimer 4-0.

He pointed to technological advancements, most notably the ability for


youngsters to get realistic seat time at
every track in state-of-the-art simulators.
People are getting here faster and
getting here with more experience than
they ever could before, Evernham said.
Its not a trend the drivers are going to
control. Its going to be like Formula
One. At about 35 and I mean probably within the next 10 years youre
going to be looking at guys that are 35,
38 years old as being too old in this
sport.
Joining Gordon in the over-35 category are Greg Biffle (45), 3-time champion Tony Stewart
(43), 2003 champion
Matt Kenseth (42),
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
(40), 6-time champion Jimmie Johnson (39), reigning
champion Kevin Harvick (39), Jamie
McMurray (38), Ryan Newman (37) and
2004 champion Kurt Busch (36).
If you look back at NASCAR and all
the years theyve been here, every eight
or 10 or 12 years, they have a reshuffling
of the people up front, 7-time champion Richard Petty said. That times
come now. Youve got guys 40, 45 years
old, and thats kind of a general age (of
retirement).
Stepping aside might sound easy but
its proven to be difficult.
Petty acknowledged staying longer
than what I should have.
But driving was my life, he added.
I knew I wasnt going to win races but
I didnt want to give up driving the race
car.
For years, Mark Martin talked about
hanging up his helmet, only to keep
coming back for more. Ricky Rudd
walked away after the 2005 season,

saying he was taking a break. He


was mostly gone for one season before
returning to a full-time ride.
Two-time Daytona 500 winner
Michael Waltrip is trying to make his
28th Great American Race.
Shoot, theres not many that, given
the opportunity, wouldnt come back
and run a race or two, Waltrip said.
Most old, retired people dont get in
winning cars. Thats who I am, whether
I like it or not.
Sponsors tend to gravitate to younger
drivers, always looking to land the next
up-and-comer and attract the coveted
18-to-35-year-old audience.
And the youngsters are here, ready
and waiting for a ride.
Kyle Larson landed a fulltime spot with Chip Ganassi
Racing last season. Chase
Elliott, the son of Hall-ofFame driver Bill Elliott, will replace
Gordon at Hendrick Motorsports in
2016. Ryan Blaney, Ty Dillon, Ben
Rhodes and Erik Jones could be next in
line for the top teams.
The day and age is changing and the
kids coming in are incredible, veteran
Joe Nemechek said. So many guys are
good that are coming up.
And behind them could be all those
young kids in the motorhome lot.
The talent pool is whats going to
force this, Evernham added. If youve
got a 35-year-old driving and then
theres a guy thats 21 that you can pay
half the money and hes going twice
as fast youre going to be looking
at that. There are going to be more and
more of these guys coming. Thats just
the evolution of where were headed.
Everybodys talking 40! Theyre not
talking 50. Ten years from now, theyre
going to be talking 35 and hes at the end
of his career.

Play Ball: Champion Giants


begin effort to win in odd year
By BOB BAUM
Associated Press

(Continued from page 6)

The Herald 7

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.
The San Francisco Giants roll
in even years, winning the
World Series in 2010, 2012
and 2014.
Enough of that pattern, Giants
manager Bruce Bochy said.
We want to have a lot
of fun in an odd year, he
said while San Francisco
pitchers and catchers reported for spring training on
Wednesday.
Pitchers and catchers also
reported to the Cincinnati
Reds, Cleveland Indians
and Philadelphia Phillies.
The rest of the major-league
teams will get going over the
next few days, half of them in
Arizona, half in Florida.
As usual, pitching should
be San Franciscos strength.
Bochy said hes pretty set on
the five-man rotation that will
open the season.
He didnt name them. But
by eliminating the non-starters he did mention, the
five would be ace Madison
Bumgarner, Matt Cain, Tim
Hudson, Jake Peavy and Tim
Lincecum.
We havent put the order
down exactly but weve got a
pretty good idea of what its
going to be, Bochy said.
He said Ryan Vogelsong
and Yusmeiro Petit would be
long-relievers and spot start-

ers. Vogelsong re-signed with


San Francisco, a 1-year, $4
million deal, knowing the
crowded starter situation he
was rejoining.
We talked a little bit about
the situation and he understands it, Bochy said. You
cant have enough depth in
the rotation. Im glad that
Ryan decided to come back
with us and I think its going
to be a workable situation.
They can help
each other out,
maybe give a
guy a start off.
Lincecum
said he has
rediscovered
the mechanics that once made
him among the best in the
game.
My body just started to
kind of click and grasp onto
the things I used to do naturally, he said.
He isnt taking the starting
role for granted.
I feel I have to re-earn my
spot in the rotation, he said.
I didnt really finish off the
year very well last year at all.
That kind of left a drive in me.
I want to get that back and
discover what went wrong.
Cain seems to be fully
recovered from last years
surgeries on his right elbow
and right ankle.
Matt looks great, feels
great, Bochy said. I mean,
really has got a great look

about him. I think hes excited that hes healthy again and
hell be back on the mound.
Hes a big part of the staff.
We need him. We need Matt
to be who he is and stay
healthy this year.
Of the projected starting
five, only the 39-year-old
Hudson wont be ready right
off this spring.
He is still recovering from
surgery to remove bone spurs
from his right
ankle.
Im probably a couple of
weeks behind
where I normally
am,
Hudson said. I had my surgery on the second of January
so I wasnt able to start throwing until the latter part of
January. So just from a throwing standpoint I have a little
ways to go before Im ready to
get in some games. My mindset is just to be ready for the
real games when the season
starts, whether that means me
pitching in one game or four
games this spring.
The team lost two starters
from last years championship squad. Third baseman
Pablo Sandoval signed a fiveyear, $95 million free agent
contract with Boston. Mike
Morse signed a two-year, $16
million deal with Miami.
But those who are returning are a strong bunch, their

manager said.
With this team, I think its
fair to say were pretty well
set, Bochy said. Were in a
good place. Wed like to have a
lot of fun in an odd year. Wed
like to change that up, so well
see if we can do that. I love the
fact that weve had the continuity here with this staff. We have
depth in the rotation. This is a
team with a lot of character.
Sitting in the Scottsdale
Stadium dugout, the manager
reflected only briefly on last
years triumph.
We had a great year last
year, he said. I hope they took
time to enjoy it and savor all of
that, but its time to go to work.
At the Phillies camp in
Clearwater, Florida, manager Ryne Sandberg said Ryan
Howard would be the teams
first baseman, despite the teams
rebuilding efforts and attempts
to trade the declining veteran.
Howard is due a minimum
of $60 million over the next
two years.
Right now hes here to
prepare for the season as one
of the guys, Sandberg said.
If he gets to where hes hitting 30-35 home runs, which
is good home runs for this
day and age of baseball, he
can help us win games this
year. To see him in the spring
and see him prepare and have
him get ready, hes here. Right
now, unless he gets unseated
hes the first baseman.

Browns coach: Manziel in better


place than before program
Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS Browns coach
Mike Pettine said Wednesday he
believes quarterback Johnny Manziel is
in a better place since entering a treatment program earlier this month.
Manziel, his family and the team
have not said why he sought help.
Pettine did not provide any additional
details about the reasons, citing privacy
concerns, and that there was no timetable for his return.
But on the first big day of this weeks
NFL scouting combine, Pettine said he
visited the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner last week.
Hes in a much better place now
than when he went in, Pettine said.
Hes very determined to come out of it
in a much better way.
That might be the best possible news
for Cleveland, which has used 22 different starting quarterbacks since the
franchise returned to the league in 1999.

DEAR STICKY FINGERS:
Some people shoplift because they are
criminals, some do it for thrills, and
others do it to make up for something
else that is missing in their lives. Because you know what you are doing is
wrong, would like to understand your
compulsion and want to stop, the person to discuss this with is a psychologist. Your physician can refer you
to one, or contact your state psychological association to find someone in
your area.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO MY
ASIAN READERS: The Lunar New
Year begins today. This year is the
year of the goat. People born in the
year of the goat are gentle, serene,
calm and mild-mannered. They are
creative, persevering, resilient and
possess excellent defensive skills.
They prefer to be in groups and work
in teams and, I am told, they can be
flirtatious. A happy, healthy and prosperous new year to all who celebrate
it. -- Love, ABBY

some value.
More research is clearly
needed. A larger study might
be able to tease out whether certain groups of people
might be more likely to benefit from spinal injections. All
we know from any randomized trial, even well-done studies like this one, is what the
reaction to the treatment has been for the average patient
in the study. It remains possible that one subgroup of patients in the study -- those with more severe narrowing of
the spinal canal, for example -- might really benefit from
the treatment.
You can also try:
-- Analgesics, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol)
-- Anti-inflammatory medicines, such as ibuprofen
(Advil, Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve)
-- Muscle relaxants
-- Heat
-- Physical therapy or stretching
If all else fails, you might need to consider surgery.
This is a major operation that is usually regarded as a last
resort.
As for me, I have been fortunate. Regular exercises to
strengthen my back muscles have kept me nearly completely free of symptoms. That also has been my experience with patients. Very few have needed to consider surgery, and relatively few have received spinal injections of
corticosteroids.
What if that does not remain true and my symptoms
return? And what if all the other treatments Ive mentioned (short of surgery) dont give relief? Would I consider spinal injections of corticosteroids? Yes, I might.
But I wouldnt be terribly confident that Id made the
right decision.

Todays
Horoscope
By Eugenia Last

Thursday, February 19, 2015


An unusual approach to an
old plan will help you find a
solution to a pending concern.
Money can be made if you
market your talents to a diverse audience. Dont pay too
much attention to criticism. If
you follow your intuition, you
will find the right path.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) -- You can achieve financial security. If you set up a
savings plan, you will gain
benefits quicker than you anticipate. Break bad habits and
replace them with positive alternatives.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
-- Put the brakes on the emotional roller coaster you are
riding. Find something encouraging in every situation
you face. Get details before
making a commitment or decision that will be difficult to
reverse.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Check out domestic products or services that could
reduce your workload or increase your comfort level.
Purge unwanted items and
give them to the needy, or
have a garage sale.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
-- Accept an unexpected invitation to a social event if you
want to meet someone who
could influence your future.
Offer insight into what you
can do for others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
-- Dont get stressed out over
trivial matters. Pay close attention when operating machinery or hazardous equipment. A lack of focus will lead
to an injury or mishap.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-- Find out more about your
family background or community. Visit a library, scan social
media or talk with people who
have knowledge regarding
your past. Get out and participate.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Its
easy to fall into bad habits for
the sake of convenience. You
are what you eat, so put more
effort into nutrition and diet
if you want to look and feel
great.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- A close confidant will help
provide you with a different
perspective on a troubling issue. Family members will be
oversensitive, so be encouraging and gentle to avoid discord.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
-- Dont overlook the importance of getting along with
your peers. Tension will be
manageable if you are respectful and diplomatic. A tense atmosphere causes stress, and a
hostile environment is counterproductive.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- You have been working too
hard. Take time out and visit
friends, or venture somewhere
out of the ordinary. A new locale will offer inspiration and
the push you need to further
your goals.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Someone will be
upset or offended by something you say or do. Proceed
with caution and choose your
words wisely to avoid a scene.
Keeping the peace is in your
best interest.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- You are viewed as a valued friend and important ally.
Partnerships and collaborative
efforts will go smoothly today,
due to your special insights
and unique ideas.

Libya to UN Security Council:


Lift arms embargo to fight IS
UNITED NATIONS (AP) Libyas foreign minister on
Wednesday demanded that the U.N. Security Council lift an
arms embargo so his country can fight the Islamic State group
as it establishes a presence in north Africa and moves closer
to Europe.
Foreign Minister Mohammed al Dairi spoke to an emergency session of the council amid regional alarm after the Islamic
State group over the weekend posted a video of the beheadings
of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya.
Al Dairi stressed that Libya is not asking for international
intervention. But he said the international community has a
legal and moral responsibility to lend urgent support and that
the region, including the Mediterranean, is in danger.
If we fail to have arms provided to us, this can only play
into the hands of extremists, he said. He told reporters he
wanted to see the same attention paid the danger in Libya as
has been paid to Iraq and Syria, where a U.S.-led coalition is
battling the Islamic State group.
The foreign minister of neighboring Egypt, Sameh Shoukry,
called for a naval blockade on arms heading to areas of Libya
outside the control of legitimate authorities. He did not rule
out troops on the ground in Libya and said his country was
seeking international support by all means.
Jordan was circulating a draft resolution on the issue to
fellow council members later Wednesday.

US withholding details of
Iran nuke talks from Israel
WASHINGTON (AP)
The Obama administration
said Wednesday it is withholding from Israel some
sensitive details of its nuclear negotiations with Iran
because it is worried that
Israeli government officials
have leaked information to
try to scuttle the talks and
will continue to do so.
In extraordinary admissions that reflect increasingly strained ties between the
U.S. and Israel, the White
House and State Department
said they were not sharing
everything from the negotiations with the Israelis
and complained that Israeli
officials had misrepresented what they had been told
in the past. Meanwhile,
senior U.S. officials private-

ly blamed Prime Minister


Benjamin Netanyahu himself
for changing the dynamic
of previously robust information-sharing by politicizing it.
The comments came as
a late March deadline to
forge the outline of an Iran
nuclear deal looms and U.S.
and Iranian negotiators prepare for a new round of talks
later this week in Geneva,
Switzerland.
Netanyahu has angered
the White House with his
open opposition to a deal he
believes threatens Israels
existence, and by accepting
a Republican invitation to
address Congress about Iran
in early March without consulting the White House, a
breach of diplomatic protocol.

Trivia

Answers to Wednesdays questions:

The only bar patron to appear in every episode of the popular 1980s TV sitcom Cheers was
Norm Peterson, played by George Wendt. The only
other regulars to appear in every episode were Ted
Danson, who played bar owner Sam Malone; and
Rhea Perlman, who played waitress Carla Tortelli.
The first berets worn by members of a U.S. military
unit were maroon. In 1943, during World War II, soldiers in a battalion of the U.S. Armys 509th Parachute
Infantry were given maroon berets when they were
granted honorary membership in the British Parachute

Obama: US at war with those


who have perverted Islam
WASHINGTON (AP) Muslims
in the U.S. and around the world have
a responsibility to fight a misconception that terrorist groups like the
Islamic State speak for them, President
Barack Obama said Wednesday in his
most direct remarks yet about any link
between Islam and terrorism.
For weeks, the White House has sidestepped the question of whether deadly
terror attacks in Paris and other Western
cities amount to Islamic extremism,
wary of offending a major world religion or lending credibility to the war on
terror that Obamas predecessor waged.
But as he hosted a White House summit
on countering violent extremism, the
president said some in Muslim communities have bought into the notion that
Islam is incompatible with tolerance and
modern life.
We are not at war with Islam,
Obama said. We are at war with people
who have perverted Islam.
While putting the blame on IS and
similar groups Obama said the mili-

tants masquerade as religious leaders but


are really terrorists the president also
appealed directly to prominent Muslims
to do more to distance themselves from
brutal ideologies. He said all have a duty
to speak up very clearly in opposition
to violence against innocent people.
Just as leaders like myself reject the
notion that terrorists like ISIL genuinely
represent Islam, Muslim leaders need
to do more to discredit the notion that
our nations are determined to suppress
Islam, Obama said.
Issuing such a direct challenge to
Muslims marked a clear departure from
the restrained, cautious language Obama
and his aides have used to describe the
situation in the past.
In the days after last months shootings at a satirical French newspaper that
had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad,
Obama avoided calling the attack an
example of Islamic extremism, and
instead opted for the more generic violent extremism. Recently, the White
House also struggled to explain whether

Mangas also noted that with the increased technology in


students hands such as Chromebooks and iPads, another set
of hands to tackle support will be helpful.
A lot of rural schools are underserved in this area and
Im pleased we are being proactive and offering this to our
students, Board President Kevin Landin added.
Mangas told the board he had interviewed four of the 15
applicants he screened for the instrumental music instructor
position that will be left open by the retiring Warren Bowery.
I would hire any of them so I feel bad for the other three
and hope they find a position, Mangas said. I will be sending
out a letter to the applicant I decide on next week.
A few glitches had to be ironed out this week during state
testing. Mangas said four elementary students were kicked off
the system during testing but the problem was resolved and
those students were able to complete their tests in a timely
manner.
The problem was a programming error and when they
tried to go from question 6 to question 7, the system kicked
them out, Mangas said. It was a state-wide problem so we
were not alone. We were fortunate we had so few this happened to.
In Treasurer Bob Webers report, board members learned
the district will receive $20,835.27 in Casino Tax Payments
for 2015. The figure was approximately $1,300 less than last
and considerably more than the first payment of $9,528.26 in
2013.
On a more sober note, he reported that if Governor John
Kasichs budget remains as is, the district will lose 1 percent
of its state funding or $47,184 in 2016 and $46,713 in 2017.
These are just projections, Weber said. Its manageable
if it stays at 1 percent.
Mangas agreed.
At 1 percent we will be fine, he said. Financially we are

the U.S. believes the Afghan Taliban to

The refusal to directly assess any
Islamic role in the terrifying scenes
playing out in Europe, the Mideast and
Africa has drawn criticism from those
who say Obama has prioritized political
correctness over a frank acknowledgement of reality. National security hawks,
in particular, argued that Obamas counterterrorism strategy couldnt possibly
be successful if the president was unable
or unwilling to confront the true nature
of the threat.
White House aides said they were
avoiding associating the attacks with
Islam for the sake of accuracy and
to avoid lending credence to the terrorists own justification for violence a
strict interpretation of Islam. Frustrated
by what they deemed a manufactured
controversy, Obama aides have argued
that a focus on terminology has distracted from more fruitful conversations
about what can actually be done to stop
extremist ideologies from spreading.
