AEP to conduct aerial patrols
LIMA — The Allen County Health Department has received reports of five cases of laboratory-confirmed pertussis (also known as whooping cough) and is investigating one suspected case. The Health Department is currently identifying persons who might have been exposed and is notifying them by phone. Pertussis is a highly contagious bacterial infection of the respiratory system that can cause episodes of severe cough. Since the 1980s, there’s been a dramatic increase in the number of cases of pertussis in the U.S., especially among teens (10–19 years of age) and babies less than 5 months of age. Pertussis can spread through the air from a sick person durAEP Ohio will conduct aerial ing talking, sneezing, or coughpatrols of its high-voltage lines ing.

because immunization is the most effective way to prevent pertussis. Although most babies and young children receive pertussis vaccinations when they enter school, the protection from the vaccine begins to wear off five to 10 years after the last shot. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that adolescents ages 11-18 receive a single booster dose of the tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis vaccination. If parents are not sure if their children are completely immunized, they should contact their family doctor or the Allen County Health Department. The CDC also recommends that adults aged 19-64 receive a booster dose as well. These everyday actions help to prevent illness: • Cover nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. • Wash hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing. Alcoholbased hands cleaners are also effective. • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way. • Stay home if sick.

Will retires from police force
BY STACY TAFF The Delphos Herald email@example.com DELPHOS—Starting in 1968, Richard Will, or Dick as he is known, began riding along on patrols with a couple policemen friends and found he thoroughly enjoyed it. “I went in as an auxiliary patrolman for about six months and then I went full-time for a year,” Will said. “After that I went back to auxiliary and started working for KolkmeyerHelmkamp Funeral Home, stayed there for 18 years. Later I started working security for Roundy’s in Lima but all the while I kept my certifications as a patrolman. When I worked at the funeral home, they used to call me up when they needed some help and if we weren’t busy I’d go out.” Will, who has two sons and two grandchildren, had some leisurely plans for his retirement before an unexpected illness provided a setback, placing him in rehab at Vancrest. “I had plans to do some fishing and things like that, and I was still doing some

BBB warns of fraudulent health insurance
BY MIKE FORD The Delphos Herald firstname.lastname@example.org LIMA — Since a couple weeks have gone by since the president signed comprehensive health insurance reform, criminals have had time to scheme a crafty idea to steal money from honest Americans. It hasn’t been reported in the Tri-county region but officials warn residents to be on guard. West-Central Ohio Better Business Bureau Vice President of Operations Cheryl Parson says she has been alerted by the Ohio Department of Insurance to look out for persons posing as health insurance sales representatives. “We haven’t received any reports yet but they’re just starting and it takes time for us to hear of it happening here. What the DOI
after this.” At 62, Will has seen some changes in the way law enforcement operates over the years. “There’s been a lot of changes since 1968, mainly in technology,” he said. “The equipment is a whole lot more advanced. We didn’t have computers or portable radios back then so I’ve gotten to see that advancement. Back then, we had this big red book with license numbers in it that you had to page through. Now it’s a lot easier to get that information. We didn’t have the scanners either. I still listen to mine.” Even though Will pursued other venues, he always maintained his love for protecting others and responded when called upon. As for why he’s retired, Will says patrolling is a young man’s game. “I’m getting older and this is for the younger people,” he said. “There’s nothing in particular that I’ll miss because I just loved the whole job. There’s nothing I won’t miss because it’s all part of the job, part of life. I just really enjoyed helping and serving people all these years. You don’t realize how fast time passes.”

Smoke, fear of fire push rescuers from mine
MONTCOAL, W.Va. (AP) — Rescue teams trekked far enough into a ruined coal mine early today to see that no one had used a chamber where four missing miners could have sought refuge, further dimming hopes of anyone else surviving an explosion that killed 25. The teams encountered smoke and, fearing fire, had to turn back before they could check a second chamber — the last chance for the four miners’ survival. It was the latest gut-wrenching setback in a rescue effort that started with only the slimmest likelihood of finding anyone alive after Monday’s blast, the worst U.S. mine disaster in two decades. It was the third time since the explosion at Massey Energy Co.’s Upper Big Branch mine that rescuers had to pull back after making their way about 1,000 feet below the surface and about five miles into the massive coal mine. The teams had to scramble back to the surface during their previous attempts because of dangerous gases that could set off another explosion or fire. “We had a long night and we had a difficult night,” Gov. Joe Manchin said. Manchin said rescuers carried with them four extra oxygen packs, just in case. But even before they went back underground, officials started using words like “recovery”
is saying is that people are going door-todoor selling fake insurance policies. They tell people they need the extra insurance because of changes to health care brought on by recent legislation. This is fake — people do not need this. If someone calls to schedule an appointment or knocks on your door, call us or the department of insurance so we can make sure the person in question is a licensed insurance representative before you do anything. Don’t sign anything without checking it out first,” she said. Parson identified “red flags” as supplemental policies that are time-limited or offer limited benefits advertised as necessary in light of new laws. Anyone who is contacted by a suspicious person offering such insurance should call the BBB at 419-223-7010 or the Ohio DOI at 800-686-1527.
and “bodies” more frequently. As crews waited for another hole to be drilled so a camera could be dropped to check on the final refuge chamber, more details emerged about an extensive list of safety violations at the mine. Federal regulators issued evacuation orders for all or parts of the Upper Big Branch mine more than 60 times since the start of 2009, according to a report prepared for Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia. In 2007, the mine met criteria to be declared by the Mine Safety and Health Administration to have a patSee MINE, page 2

Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens retiring
By MARK SHERMAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, the court’s oldest member and leader of its liberal bloc, is retiring. President Barack Obama now has his second high court opening to fill. Stevens said today he will step down when the court finishes its work for the summer in late June or early July. He said he hopes his successor is confirmed “well in advance of the commencement of the court’s next term.” His announcement had been hinted at for months. It comes 11 days before his 90th birthday. Stevens began signaling a possible retirement last summer when he hired just one of his usual complement of four law clerks for the next court term. He acknowledged in several interviews that he was contemplating stepping down and would certainly do so during Obama’s presidency. Chief Justice John Roberts said in a written statement that Stevens has earned the gratitude and admiration of the American people. “He has enriched the lives of everyone at the Court through his intellect, independence, and warm grace,” Roberts said. Stevens informed Obama in a one-paragraph letter addressed to “My dear Mr. President.” The court released the letter along with the chief justice’s statement on a day when the court wasn’t even in session. Just before the court’s announcement, Obama, en route back to Washington from a trip to Prague, had called in this afternoon’s Rose Garden statement, saying the subject would be a West Virginia mine accident. The timing of Stevens’ announcement leaves ample time for the White House to settle on a successor and Senate Democrats, who control 59 votes, to conduct confirmation hearings and a vote. Republicans have not ruled out an attempt to delay confirmation. The leading candidates to replace Stevens are Solicitor General Elena Kagan, 49, and federal appellate Judges

Merrick Garland, 57, and Diane Wood, 59. Stevens’ departure will not change the court’s conservative-liberal split because Obama is certain to name a liberal-leaning replacement. But the new justice is not likely to be able to match Stevens’ ability to marshal narrow majorities in big cases. Stevens was able to draw the support of the court’s swing votes, now-retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and Justice Anthony Kennedy, to rein in or block some Bush administration policies, including the detention of suspected terrorists following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, its tilt toward protecting businesses from some lawsuits and its refusal to act against global warming.

tern of violations. This would have allowed for stricter oversight by the federal agency, including the potential shutdown of the mine, but Massey was able to reduce the number of the most serious violations and avoid the declaration. MSHA has appointed a team of investigators to look into what happened, and President Barack Obama said he has asked federal mine safety officials to report next week on what may have caused the blast. Officials have suggested a buildup of methane may have been to blame.
There have been no signs of life inside the mine since the day of the explosion, but officials and miners’ families prayed the four miners somehow made it to one of two refuge chambers stocked with four days’ worth of oxygen, food and water for 24 miners. It’s possible that with fewer miners inside, they could survive for longer than four days. As rescue teams tried to get to the last chamber, they found signs of fire and smoke and had to retreat before they could determine if any miners were inside. It was not clear what might have been on fire, said Kevin Stricklin

of the Mine Safety and Health Administration. The refuge chamber is an expandable box activated by opening a door and pulling a lever. It takes about five minutes for the chamber to deploy, and crews using a camera or checking person should be able to see easily whether that happened, said Rory Paton-Ash, a spokesman for the manufacturer, Strata Safety. “You would know very, very clearly if it had been deployed,” he said. Search teams had gotten frustratingly close a day earlier to answers for the families of the missing miners — just 500 feet from the emergency chambers where any survivors would be — then were ordered to retreat because of volatile gas. With the air deemed slightly safer four days after the blast and nitrogen being pumped in from above ground to neutralize explosive methane gas, rescuers went back in just before 2 a.m., navigating rubble strewn with bodies, twisted railroad track, shattered concrete block walls and mounds of dust.
To get so close three times, only to have to rush back to the surface again without completing their mission, has been difficult for the crews. “It’s very emotional for all the rescuers,” Stricklin said. It’s also been tough on families, but they said they understand the delay. “We know it takes time. We know they have to wait until the threat level goes down,” said Pamela Lynch, whose husband Melvin emerged unharmed from the mine after the explosion. “If not, we’ll have more casualties. And that’s the last thing this community needs.” She said she and her husband, whose brother William died in the blast, are still clinging to hope that the four missing miners are safe. But she said the victims’ families understand why rescue miners haven’t been able to carry out their mission yet. “It’s frustrating but they got to take precautions. There’s nothing they can do. It’s not their fault that the gas level is so high,” she said. “But we just know that we have to keep trusting God.”

COLUMBUS (AP) — Officials in some of Ohio’s larger counties have slowly begun sizing up the new state law that gives them authority to take over and rehabilitate foreclosed and abandoned properties before returning them to private ownership. The legislation expands the use of so-called land banks outside of Cuyahoga County, which won the state’s blessing to launch a pilot program last year to deal with huge foreclosure problems in Cleveland and its near suburbs. The county’s program, funded through interest and penalties on delinquent taxes, has so far banked scores of vacant properties. The new law, taking effect in early July, allows nearly half the state’s counties — those with populations of at least 60,000 — to create nonprofit organizations with the ability to acquire abandoned properties and maintain, renovate, demolish or resell them. “Vacant properties can eat away at the fabric of neighborhoods,” Gov. Ted Strickland said before signing the law this week. He said the law would help counties combat the decay that can result from absentee speculators buying up foreclosed properties and flipping them to new buyers, without making improvements.

But bipartisan support from Republicans, who have been critical of the project, will be crucial for subsequent votes needed to buy trains and make track improvements. State law says spending for “capital improvements” is subject to a supermajority vote of at least five members.

Diplomat planned to meet jailed terrorist
By MATTHEW LEE and P. SOLOMON BANDA The Associated Press WASHINGTON — A Qatari diplomat was on his way to an official visit with an imprisoned al-Qaida sleeper agent when he touched off a bomb scare by slipping into an airline bathroom for a smoke, officials said Thursday as the diplomat prepared to leave the U.S. The diplomat, Mohammed Al-Madadi, was going to pay a consular visit to the prisoner, said Alison Bradley, a public relations executive hired to speak for the Qatari Embassy, and a State Department official. The prisoner, Ali Al-Marri, a citizen of Qatar, is serving eight years after pleading guilty last year to conspiring to support terrorism. Al-Marri was arrested after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, accused of being a sleeper agent researching poisonous gasses and plotting a cyberattack. Consular officials frequently visit foreigners held in the United States to make sure they are being treated well. Bradley said Qatari diplomats have made multiple visits to Al-Marri in prison since he pleaded guilty. The right to such visits is guaranteed by international agreements, and the U.S. Bureau of Prisons had approved this visit by Al-Madadi in advance, Bradley added. Questions remained about why a diplomat on an official trip, like Al-Madadi, would apparently flout airline security rules. Law enforcement officials said Al-Madadi later joked that he had been trying to light his shoe — an apparent reference to the 2001 socalled shoe bomber, Richard Reid. The U.S. officials who discussed the case did so on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter. No explosives were found on the plane and authorities said they don’t think Al-Madadi was trying to hurt anyone during Wednesday’s scare. He enjoys diplomatic immunity from U.S. prosecution and will not be criminally charged, authorities said. The State Department official said Qatar had not yet informed the administration how it will handle the case but has assured the U.S. that Al-Madadi will leave the country. U.S. officials expect that to happen later Thursday or today. “We fully expect this will be resolved very quickly,” State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters. Crowley said the U.S. government is satisfied that the Qatari government is taking the matter seriously. Wednesday’s scare came three months after the attempted terror attack on Christmas when a Nigerian man allegedly tried to blow up a Detroitbound airliner. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab went to the bathroom just before he allegedly tried to ignite a bomb in his seat. Since then, law enforcement, flight crews and passengers have been on high alert for suspicious activity on airplanes. That scare exposed major holes in the country’s national security and prompted immediate changes in terror-screening policies. Some air travelers at Denver International Airport Thursday were amazed that Al-Madadi would not be charged with anything. “I think it’s wrong. I’d get busted. I don’t think that (immunity) should be a factor,” said one of them, Hank DePetro, a retired psychologist from Greeley, Colo. Under international protocol — the 1961 Vienna Conventions on Diplomatic Relations — diplomats in foreign countries enjoy broad immunity from prosecution. That immunity can only be waived by a diplomat’s home government, something that is rarely requested and even more rarely granted.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Next up, Sarah Palin. The spotlight at the threeday Southern Republican Leadership Conference turns today to the 2008 vice presidential nominee. The former Alaska governor is among the potential GOP contenders to challenge President Barack Obama in 2012 addressing the gathering of a few thousand Republican activists in Louisiana. At least four possible candidates passed up the event, choosing instead to do their political leg work elsewhere. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who many party insiders consider the frontrunner after his failed 2008 candidacy, was in the midst of a book tour. Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who was on John McCain’s 2008 vice presidential short list, was addressing the activists by video so he could welcome home returning troops. Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who won the Iowa caucuses in 2008, was focused on his cable news show. And Sen. John Thune, a rising Republican star, was attending to his South Dakota constituents. It’s not unusual for politicians eyeing the presidency to gather this early. Potential candidates usually use such forums to gauge their clout years before a presidential race. And the perpetual campaign is normal in modern presidential politics. The goal isn’t to court voters, as few are paying attention this early. Rather, these Republicans are trying to create buzz and draw media coverage, as well as attract donors and top political talent as they lay the groundwork to take on Obama. On Thursday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Obama was “the most radical president in American history.” Gingrich reminded conservative activists why he was one of the nation’s most polarizing leaders in the 1990s, opening the conference with a biting assessment of Obama. “The most radical president in American history has now thrown down the gauntlet to the American people: ’I run a machine. I own Washington and there’s nothing you can do about it,”’ Gingrich said. He urged his fellow Republicans to stop what he called Obama’s “secular, socialist machine.” Highly charged words, for sure. But that’s standard fare at this GOP gathering. Gingrich has not declared his intentions for 2012, but his appearances in New Orleans had all the trappings of a fledging presidential campaign, from an intimate meeting with tea party activists — his staff photographer took grip-andgrin pictures of Gingrich posing with every activist — to his wade-through-the-crowd entrance at the conference, with the thumping beat of Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” drawing the crowd to its feet. He maintained that Obama’s policies — particularly health care and economic stimulus legislation — have put the United States on the road to socialism. Gingrich offered Republicans an antidote to Democratic accusations that GOP leaders do little more than oppose policies — the socalled “Party of No.” He said Republicans should underscore the policies they favor — tax cuts, a lower deficit, fewer regulations and a sensible energy plan.
Palin to address GOP faithful
Republicans expected to line up behind New START
By ANNE FLAHERTY The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Despite near gridlock in the Senate, Republicans were expected to swing behind a new arms control treaty with Russia that President Barack Obama said they will like, even though some are reserving judgment until Obama can assure them the pact won’t set back U.S. defenses against other potential foes such as North Korea and Iran. Obama called the pact signed Thursday a fresh beginning with Russia and predicted the Senate will ratify the agreement by the end of the year. “This ceremony is a testament to the truth that old adversaries can forge new partnerships,” Obama said in Prague, where he stood grinning with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev following the signing of a treaty that would shrink the one-time rivals’ arsenals to their lowest levels since the frightening arms race of the 1960s. Obama returns to Washington today. The warheads covered by the treaty are lethal relics of the Cold War, and even with the planned reductions there will be enough firepower on each side to devastate the world many times over. Of more immediate concern are attempts by terrorist groups like al-Qaida and nations such as Iran and North Korea to acquire or use nuclear weapons. The treaty requires approval by two-thirds of the Senate to take effect. History is on Obama’s side, even if numbers in the Senate are not. He will need 67 votes in a chamber where Democrats control 59 seats in a sour political climate that could tempt Republicans to set aside the nonpartisan deference often given to national security treaties. “There is a strong history of bipartisanship when it comes to the evaluation of international treaties, particularly arms control treaties,” Obama said. Republicans, however, did not rush to either praise or criticize the treaty. They want Obama to promise it won’t undercut the nation’s ability to set up missile defenses to protect against an attack from Iran or North Korea. They also want assurances that the agreement will preserve what’s known as the “nuclear triad” — the nation’s ability to deliver nuclear weapons from the air, land and sea. “The Senate will assess whether or not the agreement is verifiable, whether it reduces our nation’s ability to defend itself and our allies from the threat of nuclear armed missiles, and whether or not this administration is committed to preserving our own nuclear triad,” said Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. GOP officials say they won’t know the answer to those questions until lawmakers are briefed on the treaty and its technical annexes in detail and convene hearings. “We’ll want to review all of that, have constructive discussions with the administration officials in charge of implementing it and then obviously talk to experts, have hearings and debate in the Senate,” Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., said on PBS’ NewsHour. He added that the president’s modernization plan for the nation’s nuclear arsenal would also bear on his decision to support or oppose the treaty.
Citi’s former executive scolded over risk-taking
By MARCY GORDON The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Robert Rubin, the former financial superstar once lionized for his global crisis-fighting prowess, was scolded Thursday over the mortgage-securities disaster at Citigroup Inc. when he was a top executive there. His claim he didn’t know of the risks piling up drew a sharp retort. “You can’t have it both ways: You either were pulling the levers or asleep at the switch,” the head of the panel investigating the roots of the financial crisis told Rubin at a hearing. Rubin expressed regret. Yet he insisted he didn’t know until late in the game, when the subprime mortgage crisis erupted in September 2007, about the $43 billion in highrisk mortgage securities on Citigroup’s books. The Citi trading-desk executives who built up that mountain of risk “acted in good faith and did what they felt was appropriate,” Rubin said. He said they thought, as many others on Wall Street did, that the triple-AAA rated securities were safe from default. “There isn’t a way that you’re going to know what’s in those (bank) position books,” he said. “You really are depending on the people who are there to tell you.” But Phil Angelides, chairman of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, told Rubin that as head of the executive committee of Citigroup’s board, “You were not a garden-variety board member. ... I’m not so sure apologies are as important as assessment of responsibility.” The public scolding of Rubin marked another chapter in his fall from grace. Until the financial crisis struck with force in 2008, he enjoyed renown as one of the most influential figures in global finance. After leading Wall Street powerhouse Goldman Sachs & Co., Rubin served as Treasury secretary in the Clinton administration. In the late 1990s he worked with Alan Greenspan, then the Federal Reserve chairman, and Larry Summers, then Rubin’s deputy, to contain financial crises in Russia, Asia and Latin America. “The Committee to Save the World” Time magazine dubbed the trio. Critics have said Rubin, with his vast experience, should have picked up on the warning signs of the crisis and taken a more active role in preventing Citigroup’s debacle. “All of us in the industry failed to see the potential for this serious crisis,” he told the congressionally chartered panel on Thursday. “We all bear responsibility for not recognizing this, and I deeply regret that.” Angelides said of Rubin and former Citigroup CEO Charles Prince, who resigned at the height of the turmoil in November 2007: “The two of you in charge of this organization did not seem to have a grip on what was happening.” After Prince resigned, Win Bischoff became acting CEO. Rubin stepped in as chairman, helping Citi raise billions in capital to shore up its sinking finances. Rubin referred several times Thursday to anecdotes from his experience as cochairman of Goldman Sachs. He said he learned that running a huge organization requires reliance on underlings to monitor details. And he said he hasn’t abandoned his appreciation of innovative financial products — even though some such products that skirted regulation helped ignite the financial crisis.

Cougars erupt Woods back, better than ever to start Masters to down Jays
By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press
By JIM METCALFE The Delphos Herald firstname.lastname@example.org
VAN WERT — Baseball is a funny game. A team can be rolling along and then have the roof cave in on them in just one inning. That is what happened to St. John’s in the sixth frame Thursday night. Van Wert turned a 7-5 deficit in the bottom of the sixth into a 16-8 victory on a chilly and windy Russell Fisher Field at Smiley Park. “That is the game of baseball at times. I don’t know if I’ve ever been involved in an inning like that before,” St. John’s coach Dan Metzger observed. “They hit some balls hard and had others drop in. Mostly, though, we made too many mistakes and fielding errors. You can’t give teams like Van Wert that many extra outs. Everything just seemed to snowball. That’s where we need someone to step in and take leadership in those situations.” The Jays (2-6) took that 7-5 lead with a 2-run sixth frame but the Cougars exploded for 11 runs in the home half against junior reliever Tyler Bergfeld (0-1). The Cougars (4-1) used eight hits, four errors and a few other defensive mistakes, two walks and a wild pitch to account for that 11-run eruption. The big blow was a 3-run double by Seth Bolenbaugh (2-for-4, 3 runs), as was a 2-run base hit by Cory Heitz (2-for-4, 3 runs batted in, 2 runs). All in all, of the 11 runs Bergfeld was saddled with, only three were earned. Mitchell MacLennan led off the seventh with a roundtripper to right center. With one down, pinch-hitters Tyler Ditto and Ryan Densel got aboard courtesy of errors. However, the Jays could do no more damage. The Jays got two on the board in the first. Tanner Calvelage (2 runs) got on board via an error to lead it off and stole second. Bergfeld (2-for-4, 3 runs) walked. A bounce-out by Jordan Leininger moved both runners up a base. Chris Pohlman walked to juice the bases. Austin Vogt beat out an infield hit to deep short that Cory Clifton kept in the infield to score Calvelage. MacLennan walked to bring Bergfeld in. However, the next two batters fanned against starter Brant Taylor (5 1/3 IPs; 6 hits, 7 runs, 5 earned, 4 walks, 5 Ks) to keep it a 2-run lead. Van Wert replied with two in the home half against sophomore starter Jordan Bergfeld (4 IPs, 5 hits, 5 runs, 1 earned, piecing together two errors to get two runners on base. With two down, Taylor singled to left to plate both Bolenbaugh and Clifton for a 2-2 scoreboard. The Jays plated three runs in the second. With one down, Calvelage was plunked. T.
Bergfeld beat out a nibbler to third and an error on the play scored Calvelage and put the batter at third. Leininger singled to right center to score Bergfeld. Consecutive wild tosses pushed him to third. An out later, Vogt’s grounder was booted, scoring Leininger for a 5-2 edge. The home team got one back in the third set up by an error (9 for the game), a stolen base and a run-scoring double by Tyler Putman (3-for4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs) that got Clifton in. However, J. Bergfeld set down the next three batters to keep runners at second and third. Leininger’s 2-out double in the fourth was for naught. Van Wert tied the game in the home half. A walk and a bunt single — plus a throwing error — set it up for Putman’s 2-run knock that score Joey Hurless and Bolenbaugh and tie the game at 5. That score stood until the top of the sixth. The Jays garnered the momentum as Curtis Geise led off with a walk and stole second. An out later, T. Bergfeld singled to left center to get him home, finishing off Taylor on the mound and bringing in winning reliever Ty Page. Leininger greeted him with a 2-bagger to left center to score Bergfeld for that 7-5 edge. “For the first five innings, we played a solid game. We came out hitting the ball well again and took advantage of some early mistakes Van Wert made,” Metzger added. “We kept battling and every time they answered, we answered right back. Our defense let our pitching down and we again had that one bad inning that we struggled with earlier in the season.” St. John’s visits Kalida for a 5 p.m. Monday start.
Cabrera, Sizemore lift Tribe over White Sox in 11
CHICAGO (AP) — Grady Sizemore is healthy and ready to help the Cleveland Indians show that perhaps they shouldn’t be written off this season. The season’s only three games old, but the Indians haven’t felt this successful in years. “We just wanted to get off to a good start,” Sizemore said Thursday night after his three RBIs helped the Indians to a 5-3, 11-inning victory over the Chicago White Sox. “Chicago got us in Game 1 but we bounced back and played real well these last two games. We just want to get momentum going and carry that through. We’ve already forgotten about last year.” The Indians were expected to contend in 2009 but started 0-5 and were seven games out in the AL Central by the first week of May. Injuries limited Sizemore, their best player, to 108 games. They traded stars Cliff Lee and Victor Martinez, finished 65-97 and fired manager Eric Wedge. They hired Manny Acta as manager and went young — and few prognosticators gave them a chance in 2010. “We want to prove them wrong,” said Chris Perez, who has saved the last two games as a substitute for injured closer Kerry Wood. “Every year, every single person in the media usually is wrong.” Luis Valbuena opened the 11th with a bunt single off J.J. Putz (0-1). He went to second on Lou Marson’s sacrifice and, after Putz struck out Michael Brantley, Asdrubal Cabrera dumped a single into right field to put Cleveland ahead. Sizemore followed with his second RBI double of the night. Acta moved Sizemore from leadoff to No. 2 in the order to give him more opportunities to drive in runs. “He showed in spring trainBy JOE KAY The Associated Press
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods played like the last five months never happened. Even more surprising, he felt that way, too. No longer the same person after he was caught cheating on his wife, Woods looked every bit the same golfer Thursday when he opened with a 4-under 68 — his best first round ever at Augusta National — that left him only two shots behind 50-yearold Fred Couples on an extraordinary opening day at the Masters. It just didn’t seem that way to Woods. Standing on the first tee, looking down a fairway lined with thousands of spectators curious to see how he would respond to a sex scandal that shocked the world, Woods didn’t flinch. “It felt normal,” he observed. “Try to hit a little fade off the first tee, try to take something off of it and make sure I got it in play. That was about it. From there, I just went about my business.” Indeed, he was the same Tiger. He pledged to control his emotions on the course, yet there was little change. Woods twirled his club after a good drive, slammed it after a few bad ones. He pumped his fist after making the first of two eagles and sunk to his knees when he missed a birdie putt on the 16th that slowed his climb up the leaderboard. And just like always, he complained about not making enough putts. “Otherwise, it could have been a very special round,” Woods said. Couples, who played a practice round with Woods on Monday, sauntered along in tennis shoes and no socks and shot a 6-under 66. It was his best score ever at the Masters
and made him the oldest player to be the outright leader for any round. “I never really thought about what I was shooting,” said Couples, who already has won three times this year on the 50-and-older Champions Tour. “It was a fun day for me. I still think I can play, and if I putt well I’ve got to be some kind of factor in my mind.” Tom Watson, at 60 the oldest player in this Masters, picked up from his amazing ride at last year’s British Open with a bogey-free round of 67 that left him tied with Lee Westwood, Phil Mickelson, PGA champion Y.E. Yang and K.J. Choi. “My goals were to play better than I’ve played in the last five or six years and I achieved that — for the first round,” Watson said. “I’m playing pretty well. I’ve said I have to play better than 90 percent to be successful on this golf course.” Still, this day was always going to be about Woods. He had not hit a competitive shot in 144 days, since winning the Australian Masters on Nov. 15 for his 82nd victory around the world. A 4-time Masters champion, he has never come to Augusta National with so much uncertainty — about his game and mostly how fans would respond to a player whose impeccable image had been shattered by tawdry tabloid tales of sex. The patrons were on their best behavior, as expected at the most polite tournament in golf. Augusta National can’t control the perimeter of the course, however, and a couple of planes toted banners that poked fun at Woods — one for his pledge to get back to Buddhism (“Bootyism,” the banner said), another mocking claims he needed therapy as a sex addict. On the ground, the gallery was mostly positive, with a few exceptions.
“He doesn’t have the right character and integrity to represent golf,” Larry Isenhour said. “That’s why I came out early this morning to applaud Jack Nicklaus.” Nicklaus, the 6-time Masters champion, joined Arnold Palmer as an honorary starter. The two old rivals hit the ceremonial tee shots to open the Masters and chairman Billy Payne said, “The 2010 Masters is now officially begun. Have fun.” And they did. Clouds moved in quickly and kept the sun from baking out the greens and some of the hole locations allowed for birdies. The low scores weren’t a surprise, only the names next to them. Watson had two birdies in three holes to put his name on the leaderboard and bring back memories of his magical run at Turnberry last summer when he missed an 8-foot putt on last hole of regulation and then lost in a playoff at the British Open. He never went away this time, never made a bogey and wound up matching his best score ever at Augusta. Mickelson came to the Masters for the first time without having finished in the top five all year but looked as comfortable as ever, particularly on the back nine with an eagle-birdie-birdie stretch that put him atop the leaderboard at 67. Westwood, Europe’s top player, had only broken 70 twice in his Masters career until running off seven birdies for a 67. Throughout the morning, however, anticipation was building toward Woods’ return. A single row of fans stood behind the ropes along the first fairway a half-hour before Woods teed off. When he approached the green, the crowd stood 10-deep in spots, a gallery that included European Tour chief George O’Grady and about 15 people from Woods’ circle — his
mother, friends, employees, Nike chairman Phil Knight and other sponsors. Given all that transpired over the last five months — revelations of his womanizing, the loss of sponsors and a shattered reputation — it figured to be as nervous as Woods has been over an opening tee shot since his first as a pro. The crowd let out a spontaneous cheer and more applause followed when Woods found the fairway. From there, it looked as though Woods had never been gone. Nothing required more thought than the ninth hole, where Woods hit the signature shot of his return to golf. He hit his drive too far left, blocked by the pines and studied his options. A high soft shot into the breeze? A sweeping hook around the trees? With a 5-iron, he played a low hook and side-stepped all the way into the fairway to see the ball bound onto the green and settle about 15 feet from the flag,. There were flashes of a more personable player. “I said thank you all the way. I was saying thank you all day. People were just incredible all day,” he said. “It was unbelievable. I mean, all day. People, I haven’t heard them cheer this loud in all my years here. Certainly helped keep my spirits up because I was missing a bunch of putts out there.” The first fist pump came on his 8-foot eagle putt at the eighth hole. And he still had a temper. He appeared to curse and slammed his club on the 11th when his tee shot headed toward the trees, and he slung down the driver after another poor shot on the 14th. Mostly, though, this was his day to smile — he was playing golf again and playing it well. Hardly any rust from his 5-month layoff and no unusual jitters, either.

Gomes’ homer sends Reds over Cardinals 2-1
CINCINNATI — Jonny Gomes saw both of them coming — the pitch and the pummeling. Gomes expected a fastball and got one, connecting for a solo homer in the bottom of the ninth Thursday that sent the Cincinnati Reds to their first victory of the season, 2-1 over the St. Louis Cardinals. Then, he threw himself into the celebratory scrum at home, flinging away his batting helmet before hopping on the plate with both feet. He came up with one out in the ninth to face Jason Motte (0-1), brought in to face him. Motte ran the count to 2-2, throwing all fastballs. The homer came on yet another one, this one well above the belt. Despite the loss, the defending NL Central champions came away happy with how the first road series went overall. Bronson Arroyo came between the Cardinals and the sweep. Arroyo went the first eight innings. Matt Holliday hit his first homer for the Cards, who finished with four hits. Francisco Cordero (1-0) pitched a perfect ninth. Gomes’ first homer of the season decided a matchup between Arroyo and Brad Penny, who allowed one run apiece before leaving it in the hands of the bullpens. Arroyo even got in a little offense, too. Ryan Hanigan doubled just inside third base with two outs in the fifth inning. Up came
ing that he’s healthy and ready to go, and this guy’s going to be an All-Star for us again,” Acta said. “There’s no doubt in my mind that he’s going to be able to do what he did before he got hurt.” While Sizemore and the Indians are over .500 for the first time since they were 81-80 on the next-to-last day of 2008, the White Sox are smarting after getting only 14 hits in the series. Manager Ozzie Guillen made a big push to ditch the wait-for-home-runs strategy of recent years in favor of a smallball approach, but the White Sox are batting .154 through three games. They struck out 12 times Thursday and stranded eight runners in scoring position. After Carlos Quentin’s tworun homer off Joe Smith gave
the White Sox a 3-2 lead in the seventh, the Indians tied it against Matt Thornton in the eighth when Travis Hafner singled and scored on Jhonny Peralta’s two-out, two-strike double. It then started sleeting, making a night with temperatures in the 30s even more miserable. “It would have been easy after Smitty gave up that homer for us to pack it in, especially with the way the weather is,” Perez said. “But we’re not going to give up. I think that’s going to be a trademark of this team.” Both starting pitchers performed well, with Cleveland’s Justin Masterson allowing one run on four hits in five innings and Chicago’s Gavin Floyd giving up two runs on five hits in six innings.

By The Associated Press DENVER (AP) — Carmelo Anthony scored 31 points and had a game-saving block at the buzzer, helping the Denver Nuggets hold on for a 98-96 win over a Los Angeles Lakers team playing without Kobe Bryant on Thursday night. With time winding down, Anthony stuffed Derek Fisher’s shot as Denver won its fourth straight. The slumping Lakers gave Bryant the night off to rest a swollen right knee and an aching right index finger. Los Angeles has now dropped four of its last five games, but remains in control for the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs. The Lakers needs just one more win in their last four to wrap it up. Either that or a Denver loss.
J.R. Smith came off the bench to score 26 points, including five 3-pointers. Bulls 109, Cavaliers 108 CHICAGO (AP) — Derrick Rose scored 24 points, Kirk Hinrich had 23 and the Chicago Bulls survived some shaky free-throw shooting down the stretch to beat the Cavaliers with LeBron James sitting out. Luol Deng had 22 points and 10 rebounds, Joakim Noah added 17 points and 15 boards, and the Bulls moved into a tie with eighthplace Toronto in the Eastern Conference. The Raptors hold the tiebreaker, but with Chris Bosh injured, Chicago’s odds are looking good. The Bulls prevailed even though Rose and Deng each missed two free throws in the final 15 seconds and Cleveland’s Mo Williams
Arroyo, who lineda single to center for Cincinnati’s first lead of the season. Holliday tied it in the seventh with a drive to left field seats. Arroyo gave up four hits in eight innings, striking out six. Arroyo was one of the NL’s best pitchers in the second half of last season. The right-hander was bothered by a flare-up of carpal tunnel syndrome early in the season. From July 10 on, he had a 2.07 ERA that was the best in the majors. The wrist hasn’t been a problem this year. The lanky right-hander took Colby Rasmus’ comeback grounder off the side of his left shin in the second inning and limped around the infield for a couple of minutes. He threw a few practice pitches and continued even though his calf hurt the rest of the game.
scored a season-high 35 points on a night when James sat out to rest some bumps and bruises. Kings 116, Clippers 94 SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Tyreke Evans had 28 points, six rebounds and seven assists to help Sacramento snap an eightgame losing streak and stretch the Clippers’ skid to seven. After the Clippers cut Sacramentos 16-point halftime to eight after three quarters, the Kings came out with a 16-2 to run to start the fourth in pushing their lead to 100-78. It was the first time in nine games that the Kings topped 100 points. Chris Kaman scored 23 points for the Clippers, who are 3-19 since Feb. 24. Eric Gordon had 21 points, Drew Gooden scored 17 and Baron Davis had 11 points and 10 assists.
By Terry Mattingly When Peter Hitchens was 8 years old, and his brother, Christopher, was 11, their father asked the two hotheaded young Brits to sign a peace treaty. “I can still picture this doomed pact in its red frame, briefly hanging on the wall,” noted Peter Hitchens, in a recent essay published in The Daily Mail. “To my shame, I was the one who repudiated it, ripped it from its frame and angrily erased my signature, before recommencing hostilities. ... Our rivalry was to last 50 years, and religion was one of its later causes.” Under ordinary circumstances, a column in a London newspaper about a fractured relationship between two brothers would not warrant much attention among readers who care about matters of faith and doubt. The Hitchens brothers, however, are not your usual brothers. As an adult, Peter Hitchens regained his Christian faith, after years as an atheist, and his new book is titled “The Rage Against God.” The title of this column was more conciliatory: “How I found God and peace with my atheist brother.”
Hitchens vs. Hitchens
Big brother Christopher, meanwhile, has become famous as an evangelist for atheism, a scribe who revels in stabbing sacred cows with his pen -- as in his book, “The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice.” Then there is his best seller, “God is Not Great: Religion Poisons Everything.” “There are,” he argues, “four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum of servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wishthinking. ... “God did not create man in his own image. Evidently, it was the other way about, which is the painless explanation for the profusion of gods and religions, and the fratricide both between and among faiths, that we see all about us and that has so retarded the development of civilization.” Hitchens the younger understands that logic, in large part because he once walked the same road. As a teen, he burned his Bible outside his Cambridge school. To his disappointment,

“Thunder did not mutter.” He set out to rebel against everything that he had been taught was good and right and holy. This is what smart British boys of his generation were supposed to do. Eventually, he stopped avoiding churches and great religious art -- leaving him open to unsettling messages from the past. While gazing at one 15th-century painting of the Last Judgment, he found himself emotionally and intellectually moved. “These people did not appear remote or from the ancient past; they were my own generation. Because they were naked, they were not imprisoned in their own age by time-bound fashions,” noted Hitchens. “On the contrary, their hair and the set of their faces were entirely in the style of my own time. They were me, and people I knew. “I had a sudden strong sense of religion being a thing of the present day, not imprisoned under thick layers of time. My large catalogue of misdeeds replayed themselves rapidly in my head.” Then came the great oaths of his wedding rites, followed by the baptisms of his formerly atheistic wife and their daughter. A fellow
journalist heard that Hitchens had returned to church and, with “a look of mingled pity and horror,” bluntly asked, “How can you do that?” The twist in this story is that while Peter Hitchens has returned to faith, and Christopher has grown more and more outspoken in his crusade against faith, the brothers have gradually regained their affection for each other. And while many have urged them to turn their personal debates about God and the nature of moral truth into an intellectual traveling circus, neither of the brothers wants to do that. “I am 58. He is 60. We do not necessarily have time for another brothers’ war. ... I have, however, the more modest hope that he might one day arrive at some sort of acceptance that belief in God is not necessarily a character fault,” noted Peter Hitchens. “I can only add that those who choose to argue in prose, even if it is very good prose, are unlikely to be receptive to a case which is most effectively couched in poetry.”

The Herald – 9
By Bernice Bede Osol
Saturday, April 10, 2010 The ability to make and maintain friendships will be one of your more outstanding assets in the year ahead. The high regard which others hold for you will grow more in evidence as each day passes, and will do much for bettering your life. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Know when to keep quiet regarding your intentions, and you’ll fare better. Your chances for success are greater when you privately establish your objectives and can proceed without interference. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Because friends and associates are saying nice things about you, others are likely to grant you favors without being asked. Remember to say thank you when these things start to happen. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Put the pedal to the metal, and don’t put any limitations on your thinking or talents today. Some of the wonderful things you’re capable of achieving might even surprise you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If not today, it will be very soon that you should be receiving some good news that affects you personally. Even if it concerns only you, there’s a strong chance that it will be business-related. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) --You’re apt to be more astute business-wise today than you were yesterday. You might want to go back and refine things a bit or trim up a few loose ends that you left dangling. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Matters of the heart could take on greater significance today, and be more harmonious than usual in various aspects of your life. One, of course, could be in the romance department. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Because the busier you are the happier you’re likely to be, plan a full agenda today. Additionally, and of equal significance, whatever it is you attempt to do, you should do quite well. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Socializing with friends sparks the happier aspects within your personality, and brings out some of the best in you, which is likely to be the case for you today. When this happens, life is good. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Your material interests could be especially noticeable today, in finally coming up roses. Given enough time, most things have a way of working out to our ultimate benefit. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- This is one of those days where you can successfully promote products, enterprises or issues about which you feel strongly. Get out and sell what is of great importance to you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -The possibilities for personal accumulation are far better than they’ve been for quite a while for you. Ways and means to better your material position could come from some solid quarters. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- The best that’s within you is likely to be very much in evidence today and noticed by others. Even those you bump into and have only slight contact with will see much to admire.
