Letter carriers set food drive
Organic food not in demand locally
BY STACY TAFF The Delphos Herald email@example.com feet wide. Manager Kayla Northup says this would change if people would buy more organic. “People don’t buy much organic food because of the price, so we don’t stock as much,” she said. “If we were to bring more organic in, we’d have a lot of waste and would be throwing a lot out. We wouldn’t be here very long.” Some studies show the price of organic food has been driven down slightly as the demand grows but not enough to spur local interest. One would think there would be more interest in organic with the green movement and the focus on eating healthier. “We only have a few people asking about organic food; we’ve maybe had one in the last few months,” Hoehn said. “The company puts an organic item in the ad with a little picture of the product so the public can see that it’s available and we take it from there. If someone comes in asking for an organic item that we don’t stock, we’ll try to get it in for them and keep it around for a couple of months. If it works out, then great. But if not, we’ll stop stocking it.” According to the USDA/ FDA Web site, if you choose to buy organic and are con-

The National Association of Letter Carriers will hold its 18th annual food drive May 8 with Delphos carriers participating. Last year, the Delphos community contributed more than a ton of food to the record 73.4 million pounds collected nationwide. All customers, both within the city and surrounding rural routes, are asked to place non-perishable food donations by their mailboxes or in some instances, the place designated for mail delivery, and carriers will collect them. There will also be a box at the Delphos Post Office for donations. This year’s collections will be divided equally between the St. Vincent DePaul Society and the Thrift Shop in Delphos.
DELPHOS — In recent years, people have become more aware of the advantages of going organic. Organically-grown produce is not only said to be richer in nutrients, it’s also free of substances linked to cancer and other diseases and conditions. So why are the organic produce sections at the local supermarkets so tiny? According to Chief Supermarket produce manager Art Hoehn, there are several factors. “The price is the main concern. Organic produce is much more expensive and with the way the economy is, people just don’t buy it,” he said. “If organic was the same price as inorganic produce, people would prefer it. I think the area has something to do with it also, since this is more of a rural community, people are growing their own gardens. In bigger cities, there TODAY might be more of a demand Baseball (5 p.m.): Bluffton for it. Here we have more at Jefferson (NWC), Ottoville people buying organic in the at Ft.

Survivor tales from storms that killed 12
YAZOO CITY, Miss. (AP) — Morgan Hayden and Joe Moton stepped carefully through nails, broken glass and pink tufts of insulation, the remnants of their home leveled by a tornado as severe storms killed at least 10 people in rural Mississippi and two in Alabama. The couple had planned to marry today, but with little left besides the clothes on their backs, they weren’t sure what to do. “It’ll work out, though,” 27-year-old Hayden said Sunday, a day after the tornado ripped through as she and Moton, 31, huddled in a bathtub. The bathroom was the only room that wasn’t destroyed. They were unhurt, and the
organic, even if it claims to be “natural,” it is safe to assume it’s not.
stories of other survivors show how much higher the toll could have been as authorities tried to get a better handle on the destruction from violent weather that churned through a halfdozen Southern states over the weekend. Dale Thrasher, 60, had been alone in Hillcrest Baptist Church when the tornado ripped away wood and metal until all that was left was rubble, Thrasher and the communion table he had climbed under as he prayed for protection. “The whole building caved in,” he said. “But me and that table were still there.” Hundreds of homes also See STORMS, page 2

One-car accident causes power outage
Nancy Spencer photo
Delphos residents were without power for approximately an hour Sunday following an accident involving a car and power pole on East Cleveland Street. Kevin Robertson, 47, of Delphos was traveling eastbound on East Cleveland Street when he lost control of his vehicle and struck an American Electric Power pole on the north side of the roadway at Jackson Street extended. The force of the impact caused the power pole to crack approximately 5 feet off the ground. AEP crews had to cut the power at 3:55 p.m. to many south of East Second Street and east of Main Street to replace the pole. Power was restored when the work was completed.

were damaged in the tornado, which carved a path of devastation from the Louisiana line to east-central Mississippi, and at least three dozen people were hurt. National Weather Service meteorologist Marc McAlister said the tornado had winds of 160 miles an hour and left a path of destruction at least 50 miles long. Mississippi’s Choctaw County had the most confirmed deaths: five, including a baby and two other children. Sherry Fair rushed to her aunt’s home in the county. She said an hour and a half after the tornado passed, a woman lay dying in a ditch along a dirt road beside the body of her husband. “She was laying there just crying,” a shaken Fair said. “She was broke up bad. It hurt me watching, but nobody could get to her. The ambulances couldn’t get through because of the trees.” Authorities had not released a list of the dead. Tornadoes also were reported in Louisiana, Arkansas and Alabama. The storm system tracked northeastward, downing trees in northwest Georgia early Sunday and later damaging two schools and several mobile homes in Darlington, S.C. In Alabama, authorities attributed two deaths to severe weather. A 50-year-old woman was killed when she slipped and hit her head as she headed to a storm shelter Saturday, and a 32-year-old man was killed when the car he was riding in struck a tree that had blown down across a road. More than 30 other injuries were reported in the state, none serious.

Special ends April 30th 2010 The state capital in Sacramento, California. BY HELEN KAVERMAN The Glory Riders spent most of the week in and around Sacramento. At the present time they are camped at Folsom, which is located on Rt. 50, just a tad east of Sacramento. They have had to spend maintenance time on some of the trailers and equipment. Beth’s trailer was in good shape; Larry doublechecked it before she took to the road. The down time gave the horses a needed rest. Horses get stressed, just like humans, when their habitat keeps changing. One of their campsites provided a lot of grass for the horses but it was also laden with ticks. Beth had to take 20 ticks off of Bob one day and removed 10-15 of them from Tee. Some of the humans were attacked by the ticks also. Beth said being “stuck” in one area, provided time for a peaceful and serene experience. Wednesday Beth and 15-year-old Vanessa Garcia ventured downtown where they toured the State Capitol and visited Old Town. The State Capitol was built 1860-74 and is noted for its lofty glass dome, which rises 210 feet above the street. The building underwent complete restoration in the 70s. The surrounding park has trees, shrubs and other plants from around the world. Their tour guide was also a minister of the Full Gospel Church. He does this to supplement his income. He said his mother belongs to a group of ladies who hold weekly prayer services at the Capitol. They do this in much the same way as the Glory Riders by praying for people to turn their hearts to the Lord and praying that the nation will follow. Beth said the Red Room in the Capitol was very striking. The red represents royalty or wealth, a carry-over from some English heritage in the area. She said the view from the third floor of the building is spectacular. Old Town is only five or six blocks from the Capitol. Sacramento has had an abundance of rain during the time the Glory Riders have been there. When it rains, the snails come out of the ground in droves. Many rice fields can be found in the lowlands of the area. During their stay, they’ve camped in all four corners of Sacramento, which gave them the opportunity to re-dedicate each section to the Lord. As a “bossy big sister,” this writer tried to influence Beth and her friends to drive the 200 miles to Yosemite National Park. This park covers 1,189 square miles and is one of the most beautiful places in the United States. Words can not describe its beauty. Naturalist John Muir worked tirelessly to get this area saved for the park and Ansell Adams is famous for his striking black and white photographs, of Yosemite. The waterfalls of the park

Then there is the Ribbon Falls, the highest waterfall in North America, with a drop of 2,425 feet. Other waterfalls are equally beautiful. About midway through the valley on the north side is El Capitan, the largest single granite monolith on earth. Rock climbers from all over the world come to conquer the rock with its 4,000-foot summit. Another symbol of the http://intranet.localnet.com/ads/ad_redirect.php park is Half Dome. It is one of the most photographed spots in the world. At a height of 2,000 feet, the split rock is full of mystery. Beth called me on Friday and said they were not able to make the trip but here’s hoping the description of Yosemite will encourage many of you to make the trip someday. It was 40 years ago when I visited Yosemite with my husband and parents. I can still visualize it just as if it were yesterday.
The 14th Annual St. Jude’s Benefit Auction will be held at 4 p.m. on Saturday at Porter Auction, 19326 Co. Rd. 60, Grover Hill. A large variety of items have been donated for action, including: 2 tickets to Kings Island, pedal cars, 9-foot umbrella, Ohio State corn hole games, OSU 2010 Rose Bowl picture, OSU Lanterns, John Deere cabinet, R&K Ranch pheasant hunt, Spiderman motorized kids 4-wheeler w/6 wet battery, grocery items, candy, car washes, pizzas and other miscellaneous items.

“A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.” — William James, American philosopher and psychologist (1842-1910)
Democrats willing to test GOP over Wall St. deal
By JIM KUHNHENN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — With a showdown vote looming, Democrats are resisting Republican appeals for a broad compromise on financial overhaul legislation and are eager to test whether GOP unity will crack in an antiWall Street political climate. The top negotiators on the regulatory bill — Democratic Sen. Christopher Dodd and Republican Sen. Richard Shelby — professed to be close to a deal during a joint appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” But Shelby conceded that “inches sometimes are miles,” and the two did not hold a negotiating session Sunday. Appearing this morning on a network news show, Shelby said, “I don’t believe we’ll have a deal today.” The legislation is the most sweeping effort to rein in financial institutions since the Great Depression. Aimed at avoiding a recurrence of the near collapse of the financial system in 2008, it would create a mechanism for liquidating large firms that get into trouble, set up a council to detect systemwide financial threats and establish a consumer protection agency to police lending. The legislation also would require derivatives, blamed for helping precipitate the meltdown, to be traded in open exchanges. The House already passed its version of the legislation. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell on Friday blocked Democrats’ efforts to bring the bill up for debate, setting up a vote today that will require 60 votes to move ahead. McConnell and Shelby said Sunday that without a deal with Dodd, all 41 Republican senators would vote to stall the start of debate. Shelby said a deal in time for the vote was unlikely. But unlike the health care debate, public sentiment was not working in favor of Republicans. Public opinion is leaning toward more regulation of large financial institutions, and a Securities and Exchange Commission lawsuit alleging fraud by Goldman Sachs has added the cloud of scandal to Wall Street. On Sunday, Dodd, D-Conn., agreed to toughen his overarching bill with stronger rules on derivatives, including one that had drawn objections from the Obama administration, according to a Democratic official familiar with the negotiations. Dodd entered into a tentative deal with Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., to incorporate her committee’s derivatives provisions into the broader regulatory legislation. At least two Republicans — Sens. Charles Grassley of Iowa and Olympia Snowe of Maine — are on record supporting Lincoln’s derivatives package. Derivatives are the complex securities blamed for helping precipitate the 2008 Wall Street crisis. One of the most sweeping of Lincoln’s restrictions would require banks to spin off their derivatives business into subsidiaries with a separate source of capital. Large banks fiercely opposed the provision. The administration has called for banks to end trading in speculative securities but not to jettison operations that create derivatives markets for clients. In yet another attempt to attract Republicans, Democrats appeared willing to jettison from the bill a $50 billion fund — financed by large banks — that would have been used to liquidate failing firms once considered “too big to fail.” The fund has been one of the main targets of GOP criticism. Democrats said the time had come to move on with the bill.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
BOSTON (AP) — In a tough year for Democrats, the political fate of Obama pal Deval Patrick is on the line in his bid for a second term as Massachusetts’ governor. His popularity already battered by a series of gaffes and the state’s economic woes, Patrick found himself jolted again in January by Republican Scott Brown’s victory in the race for the late Ted Kennedy’s U.S. Senate seat amid voter anger at Democrats in Washington and the Statehouse. Now his re-election may hinge on the odd dynamics of a three-way contest and the presence of a former Democrat in the field. When state Treasurer Timothy Cahill decided last year to bolt from the Democratic Party and launch an independent bid for governor, party faithful accused him of trying to leapfrog a potentially costly primary. But with polls now showing Patrick holding a narrow lead over Cahill and Republican candidate and former health insurance CEO Charles Baker, it’s the GOP that’s crying foul. The Cahill factor is infuriating the state’s beleaguered Republicans, who hoped Brown’s win over Democratic Attorney General Martha Coakley would signal the start of a comeback year in a state where Democrats hold every statewide seat and overwhelming majorities in the Legislature. A poll released today is stoking Republican fears. It showed just 34 percent of likely voters support Patrick — sobering numbers for any incumbent — but 29 percent favor Cahill and 27 percent support Baker. Republicans worry the survey, by the Western New England College Polling Institute, shows Cahill and Baker splitting the anti-Patrick vote, and they are convinced Baker would be pulling away from Patrick if it weren’t for Cahill. Patrick said he’s unfazed by the polls. “I’m not focused on the other candidates and their campaigns. I’m focused on what we have to do,” he said. “What we have to do is to continue successfully governing through a crisis.” The key to success for any statewide candidate in Massachusetts is to appeal to the majority of voters — just over half — not enrolled in either major party. Running as an independent could make that easier by liberating a candidate from a party platform, Republican consultant Meredith Warren said. “It could be very freeing not to be held down by the trappings of a party,” she said. Cahill hopes to scoop up votes wherever he can before the Nov. 2 general election. In just the past week, he crashed a tea party rally on Boston Common and shook hands outside the Massachusetts Republican Party convention in Worcester. When Democrats gather in June, Cahill said, he plans to show up there, too. “I don’t know what they were saying behind my back, but to my face they were very cordial,” Cahill said of the GOP gathering. “I’m an independent, and I think my message resonates with Republicans as well as conservative Democrats.” Inside the convention hall, where Cahill was viewed as the ultimate political spoiler, he got a frostier reception.
Patrick banks on 3-way gov. race
Obama’s Supreme Court point man remains low-key but tough
By NANCY BENAC The Associated Press WASHINGTON — White House counsel Bob Bauer, President Barack Obama’s point man in the search for a new Supreme Court justice, manages to get credit both for an even temperament and his finesse with a sledge hammer. The combination is evident in one of Bauer’s favorite memories from the 2008 presidential primaries, when Obama campaign aides worried that opposing forces were trying to depress voter turnout. Bauer, the campaign’s top lawyer, confidently reassured staffers that he’d have anyone engaged in such conduct arrested. It was a morale-boosting bit of bluster that campaign workers quickly turned into a T-shirt that had “I (heart) Bauer” on the front and his quote — “We may have to arrest people” — splashed across the back. “I felt, for a moment, like Patton,” Bauer later recalled, invoking the steel-jawed general from World War II. “Not bad.” Now Bauer, 58, is plying his mix of legal reasoning and tough-guy determination from a West Wing corner office. The White House counsel is leading the search for a Supreme Court nominee and planning how to steer that choice safely through the shoals of Senate confirmation. It’s a job that requires not just legal smarts but equal parts political and media savvy as well. That’s only part of a bulging portfolio that has the top White House lawyer up at 5 each morning to read the papers, in place at the White House for the 7:30 a.m. senior staff meeting, and poring over paperwork late into the night at home. Bauer also is trying to help the administration find a way out of its conundrum over what to do with detainees at the Guantanamo Bay military prison, and he’s juggling a full slate of other legal issues. He had a role in muscling the president’s health care overhaul through Congress last month, and now his office will help to fend off legal challenges to the law. It’s a surprisingly expansive role for someone best known for his expertise on campaign finances and elections. Bauer wrote the book on campaign finance law. Two
Mocked Democrat has no opponent
By GLEN JOHNSON The Associated Press BOSTON — The January weekend after Democrat Martha Coakley lost a supposedly can’t-miss election for U.S. Senate, “Saturday Night Live” underscored the graveness of her political future with a skit where a Barack Obama impersonator labeled her “the single most incompetent candidate ever to seek public office in this nation’s history.” Three months later, Coakley faces the very real prospect of being re-elected as Massachusetts attorney general this fall without a Republican opponent. The shift reflects lingering weakness within the state GOP, despite its success in staging Scott Brown’s upset win. It also highlights Coakley’s work to rehabilitate her image, as well as the satisfaction some voters feel for her in her current role. “There is some irony in that,” said Paul Watanabe, a political science professor at UMass-Boston. “In some ways, it’s as though the January election didn’t take place, or that at least it did not have the consequences for her own political future — or opportunity for the Republicans — that virtually everyone was talking about on Jan. 20.” Coakley acknowledges she’s monitoring the progress of a potential Republican challenger, but says she won’t let her guard down until May 4 — if then. Prospective candidates have until that day to submit the signatures of 10,000 registered voters for review by city and town clerks. “I have always assumed I would have a Republican opponent, and until May 4, I’m still working on that assumption,” Coakley said. Then, in a telling moment, she added: “And after May 4, I’m going to campaign and work as if I do have an opponent.” Until January, the 56-yearold Coakley had been something of the golden girl of Massachusetts politics. She was elected district attorney in high-profile Middlesex County, then succeeded her mentor, Thomas Reilly, as attorney general. When Sen. John Kerry ran for president in 2004, and then Sen. Edward M. Kennedy was diagnosed with brain cancer in May 2008, Coakley laid
of them, in fact. For decades, Bauer has been the go-to lawyer for Democrats looking for advice on campaign matters and ethics questions. Past clients have included the Democratic National Committee, the campaign committees for House and Senate Democrats, congressional Democrats during Bill Clinton’s impeachment saga, and a freshman senator named Barack Obama. “We used to joke that we had Bob Bauer on speed dial,” says former Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle, who relied on Bauer’s advice during the impeachment drama and used him as his personal lawyer for 15 years. It was that specialized background that raised some eyebrows when Obama chose Bauer to serve as White House counsel in December. But White House counsels have come from all sorts of legal backgrounds, and there’s no predicting which ones will find the job a good fit. “I was surprised that he took it,” said Joe Birkenstock, a former counsel to the Democratic National Committee who has worked with Bauer over the years. “It can be such a brutal position.”
the groundwork to run for each of their seats. Kennedy succumbed to his disease last August, and Coakley was the first candidate in either party to declare her candidacy in January’s special election. She handily won the Democrats’ December primary, and seemed on cruise-control to win the seat her party had held for more than a halfcentury. Then Brown, a littleknown state senator, rode a wave of anti-government, anti-Obama administration sentiment to victory. Where Coakley disappeared from public views for days, and took a mini-vacation on Cape Cod, Brown relentlessly campaigned across the state. He ended up winning, costing the president the 60th Democratic vote he needed to avoid filibusters in the Senate, forcing him to overhaul his tactics for passing a national health care overhaul. Coakley herself later conceded the depth of her failure, telling one interviewer, “I’ll always be the woman who lost Ted Kennedy’s seat.” She told The Associated Press she considered not seeking re-election, but only momentarily.

Allen County Museum to present ‘The Harding Affair: Love and Espionage during the Great War’
The Allen County Museum, 620 W. Market St., Lima, will offer “The Harding Affair: Love and Espionage During the Great War” at 2 p.m. Sunday at the museum. The presenter is James Robenalt. Warren Harding fell in love with his beautiful neighbor Carrie Phillipsin the summer of 1905, almost a decade before he was elected a United States Senator and 15 years before he became the 29th President of the United States. When the two lovers began their long-term and torrid affair, neither of them could have foreseen the impact of one of the greatest conflicts in history — the First World War — on their relationship. Harding would become a Senator with the power to vote for war, while Phillips and her daughter likely became German agents, spying on a U.S. training camp in the hopes of gauging the pace of mobilization of the U.S. Army for entry into the battlefields in France. But was world history changed by this relationship? Did Carrie talk Warren out of running for president in 1916, a race he likely would have won? Then Warren Harding, not Woodrow Wilson, would have been the U.S. war president. Counter factual arguments abound. Based on over 800 pages of correspondence that had been placed under seal in the archives of the Library of Congress, The Harding Affair tells the previously unexamined and unknown stories of Harding’s personal and political life, including his passionate and politically complicated romance. In his newest book, Robenalt explores the reasons that the United States became involved in the Great War, and explains why so many Americans at the time supported Germany, even after the U.S. entered conflict in the spring of 1917.The comprehensive revelations are set in a suspenseful narrative that interweaves a real-life romance/spy drama with the story of Harding’s rise to the presidency - a story that will never be seen in quite the

Jays sweep own track invitational
second in the 8-team event but did not have one of their top performers. “We came in second without having one of our top sprinters: Kennedy Boggs. She hurt her leg Wednesday and probably will be out at least two weeks, if not longer; I just want her to take her time getting back,” head man Ryan Carder explained. “We had to replace her in three relays and the high jump but I thought we did very well with some freshmen in there. (Senior) Kayla Mullenhour did well in the 4x2 and the hurdles. (Junior) Emily Fought has only been long-jumping for a week and came in second. Those are extra points we haven’t had success getting in recent years. Mallorie Wilson was solid in the throws, as she normally is.” Carder is looking down the road, toward the Northwest Conference meet and districts. “What’s good about today is you will see some of these teams down the road,” he added.

DELPHOS — Weather threatened Saturday’s St. John’s Invitational track meet at the Scott Memorial Track. Fortunately for the participants, it held off, allowing for a fairly nice day to run. The Blue Jays were the beneficiary, winning both portions. “It’s a good day to run a meet; I’ll take a day like this any time. This is a fun tournament to have,” Jays boys coach Jay DeWitt noted. “Plus, the competition is smaller schools like us but they are good teams.” DeWitt figures his team is rounding into shape. “We don’t have the one superstar, like Cameron Hermiller, that we had for the past few years. You don’t replace someone like that but I think this might be the most balanced team I’ve had,” he said. “We are going to get points from a number of areas instead of just relying on sprinters. We’ve got some good sprinters — I think Evan Burgei is starting to become the lead guy there — but we got some big points out of Steven (Metcalfe), Nathan (Jackson) and Blake (Williams) in the throws. That really got us off well
today but we got some nice performances from a number of kids. It’s starting to come together.” His Lady Jay counterpart, Dave Desenberg, was also pleased with his girls. “I challenged the girls earlier in the week — I don’t feel we’ve had a complete meet yet — and they responded. They accepted the challenge,” he observed. “It was a fun week for them; they had different themes every day and wore different outfits.” The week of practice ended up in solid results. “We had many personal records set today. We had 55 points coming out of the field events and that was a big plus,” he added. “Bailey (Calvelage) in particular had a very strong meet: she won the pole vault with a PR of 9 feet, had a 15-3 long jump to win it and was part of the winning 4x100. She was also fourth in the 100. Outside of her, though, we had no one else have four events. Most were in two, so we didn’t pound them and got a lot of girls meet time. Emma Boggs was another leader; she was second in the 1,600-meter run and third in the 800. She’s been running against the girls from Minster and Versailles and not having a lot of success but she had two PRs.” Jefferson’s girls came in
crew is still trying to get their feet wet but he figures it’s coming around. “We lost an awful lot of experience from last year and we’re young overall but it’s coming. This is one more day to get meet experience for us,” he noted. “Andrew (Wiltsie) winning the long jump and second in the 400 was a good performance, as was Cory (Osting) in the shot put. We had a couple of freshmen that really stepped up today: Nick Gallmeier and Cody Bigelow. “Overall, I felt we competed well across the board and that is what we’re aiming for. We have another invitational Thursday, so we’ll get a couple of good workouts between now and then and go see what we can do.” First, Jefferson hosts Lima Central Catholic 4:30 p.m. today, while St. John’s brings in Spencerville and Perry 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Fort Jennings is in a quad meet and Lincolnview is in the Van Wert County Meet 4:30 p.m. as well.

Sherman, Allison and Bowen take Limaland 2010 racing openers
For The Delphos Herald A 13th season of racing at the UNOH’s Limaland Motorsports Park began one week later than originally scheduled and with threatening skies throughout the late afternoon and evening, many believed the opener might be delayed once again. The rains did arrive, although not until there were two laps remaining in the K & N Modified 20-lap feature, the first of three trophy battles on the evening docket. When the night ended, three of Limaland’s veterans were left with important wins to begin the season championship journey. Todd Sherman, Tim Allison and Tim Bowen are all multiple feature winners during their careers and proved resourceful despite the difficult conditions. The late race delay was simply another obstacle for drivers and officials in a rough and tumble K & N Modified feature. Tony Anderson, seeking an elusive first victory in modifieds, jumped to the front at the start before a major pileup in turn 3 on the opening circuit forced the first of two red flags. Anderson matched machines with Casey Luedeke until Luedeke passed for the lead on the bottom of the gripping ¼-mile oval surface. The second red flag on lap 5 slowed a quickly developing battle between Anderson and Sherman for the second position behind Luedeke. Sherman, the 2009 points runner-up, passed Luedeke from the outside and led briefly until a lap 9 caution. Sherman jumped early on the restart and was penalized two positions with 12 of the 20 laps completed. Luedeke continued to work the bottom of the moist track and paced the field until his night suddenly ended with a mechanical break and only two laps left to settle things. Sherman took over the lead and nearly on cue, a significant rain storm ensued, halting the race. After a relatively brief delay, Sherman held off fellow
Indiana veteran Terry Hull to record his 18th Limaland win. The Elwer Fence Sprints began their season with 17-year old Sheldon Haudenchild, son of longtime sprint car ace Jac Haudenchild, leading the 20-car field to green. Outside frontrow starter Sean Robinson bolted to the front around Haudenchild. Two laps later, Luke Hall passed Robinson on the bottom coming off of turn 2. At that point, it appeared only Allison was able to effectively chase Hall. On the 10th circuit, Hall was clipped by the lapped car of Jarrod Delong coming out of turn 3. The damage to hia car was enough to end his evening and allowed Allison to inherit the lead. For the veteran Allison, the track’s all-time leading winner in the sprint division, it was just the ticket. Only Haudenchild was close to Allison; for the final 14 laps, the number 11 car was not to be overtaken. The win marked Allison’s 26th feature win at Limaland and his second straight season-opening win. It was a career best finish for Haudenchild as runner-up with Mike Dussel, Butch Schroeder and Darren Long rounded out the top five. Schroeder and Long both started outside the top 10. Front-row starter Bowen jumped to the lead and through a handful of restarts never surrendered the coveted position while posting his 5th career win in the Bud Thunderstock feature. Anderson, doing double-duty again in 2010 by competing in two divisions, chased Bowen while also battling Jim Post for second place. As the checkers waved, Anderson and Post were still going sideby-side with Anderson edging Post, well behind the dominant Bowen. This Friday, Limaland will host the 11th annual Run for the Rabbit, featuring the $2,000win Engine Pro NRA Sprint Invaders, K & N Modifieds and Bud Thunderstocks. Gates open at 5 p.m. with hot laps beginning at 6:30 p.m. Racing begins promptly at 7:30 p.m.
The Associated Press CHICAGO — LeBron James had 37 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists, Antawn Jamison added 24 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Chicago Bulls 121-98 Sunday afternoon to go up 3-1 in their first-round series. The Cavaliers led by 10 at halftime after scoring 38 in the second quarter and broke it open with a 37-point third, putting them in position to close it out at home on Tuesday. James was at it again after scoring 40 and 39 the previous two games, connecting whenever he wanted and from wherever he wanted. He was 6-of-9 on 3-pointers, including a jumper from just inside midcourt at the end of the third that made it 99-76. Chicago got 21 apiece from Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, who also pulled down 20 rebounds, but the Bulls are on the verge of their second straight first-round exit after a thorough beating by the Eastern Conference’s top seed.
Heat 101, Celtics 92 MIAMI — Dwyane Wade set franchise playoff records with 46 points, 30 in the second half, and Miami staved off elimination by beating Boston in Game 4 of an Eastern Conference first-round series. Desperate to extend their season, the Heat opened the fourth quarter on a 25-8 run, fueled
The Associated Press DETROIT — The Phoenix Coyotes scored their first three goals on special teams and Ilya Bryzgalov made 31 saves in a 5-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday that forced Game 7. Phoenix will host the final game of the first-round series on Tuesday night. Lauri Korpikoski scored a short-handed goal 4:10 in to spark the win and keep the Coyotes alive. Mathieu Schneider snapped the Coyotes’ 0-for-19 skid on the power play with a goal early in the second for a 2-0 lead and Radim Vrbata scored with the man advantage midway through the period to restore the 2-goal edge. Wojtek Wolski’s even-
mostly by Wade, who made 16-of-24 shots from the field, plus added five assists. Quentin Richardson scored 20 points and Michael Beasley added 15 for the Heat, who still trail the best-of-7 3-1. Rajon Rondo led the Celtics with 23 points. Game 5 is Tuesday in Boston. Spurs 92, Mavericks 89 SAN ANTONIO — George Hill scored 29 points, helping San Antonio overcome a miserable night from Tim Duncan and take a 3-1 lead over Dallas in its firstround series. The Spurs have won three straight since coach Gregg Popovich criticized some of his players and they’ve put the No. 2 seed Mavs on the edge of their third first-round exit in four years. Game 5 is Tuesday night in Dallas. Dirk Nowitzki and Caron Butler had 17 apiece for Dallas, the NBA’s best road team during the regular season. Jazz 117, Nuggets 106 SALT LAKE CITY — Carlos Boozer had 31 points and 13 rebounds, Deron Williams added 24 points and 13 assists and Utah held off a late charge to beat Denver for a 3-1 lead in its Western Conference playoff series. Carmelo Anthony finished with 39 points and led the Nuggets back within range late in the fourth quarter but Denver never caught all the way up and lost for the third straight time in the series. Game 5 is Wednesday in Denver, where the Nuggets will need to win at home to stay alive. C.J. Miles scored 21 and Wesley Matthews added 18 points for Utah. The Jazz led by as much as 20 and had the Nuggets off balance until Anthony led a surge early in the fourth.
Canucks 4, Kings 2 LOS ANGELES — Daniel Sedin scored with 2:03 to play and Vancouver rallied from another third-period deficit to finish off its first-round series against Los Angeles with a victory in Game 6. Roberto Luongo made 30 saves while keeping Vancouver close in its third straight victory over Los Angeles; Kevin Bieksa tied it early in the third period for the third-seeded Canucks. Sedin then skated in to collect a loose puck and snapped a shot over goalie Jonathan Quick, sending Vancouver to the second round of the Western Conference playoffs for the third time in four seasons. Drew Doughty and Alexander Frolov scored and Quick stopped 18 shots for the sixth-seeded Kings.
strength goal put Phoenix ahead 4-1 late in the second. Jimmy Howard made 24 saves for the Red Wings.

after we’ve had these mediocre weekends.” While “The Back-up Plan” opened weakly, CBS Films was hoping it would hold up well in subsequent weekends, as romantic comedies often do. “Jennifer Lopez’s films have great legs, as does she,” said Steven Friedlander, head of distribution for CBS Films. “The Back-up Plan” stars Lopez as a single woman who gets pregnant through artificial insemination, then meets the man of her dreams. “The Losers,” whose cast includes “Avatar” co-star Zoe Saldana, is a comic-book adaptation about a Special Forces team looking for payback after a mission goes bad. Narrated by Pierce Brosnan, “Oceans” offers up-close glimpses of blue whales, walruses, sea turtles, spider crabs and other aquatic life. Since opening on Earth Day Thursday, “Oceans” has taken in $8.5 million. “Oceans” played in narrower release than other new movies, averaging $4,975 in 1,206 theaters, a fair result for a documentary. By comparison, “The Back-up Plan” averaged $3,735 in 3,280 theaters and “The Losers” averaged $3,271 in 2,936 cinemas. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Final figures will be released today. 1. “How to Train Your Dragon,” $15 million. 2. “The Back-up Plan,” $12.3 million. 3. “Date Night,” $10.6 million. 4. “The Losers,” $9.6 million. 5. “Kick-Ass,” $9.5 million. 6. “Clash of the Titans,” $9 million. 7. “Death at a Funeral,” $8 million. 8. “Oceans,” $6 million. 9. “The Last Song,” $3.7 million. 10. “Alice in Wonderland,” $2.2 million.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Despite his record-breaking success in music for 60 years, Quincy Jones says his proudest achievement is his seven children and six grandchildren. Jones talked about his life and music career during an hour-long on-stage conversation with Ludacris Friday night as part of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers’ annual “I Create Music” expo at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel. The 77-year-old composer and producer says it’s been “a blessing” to have worked with “every major artist of the 20th century,” including Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin and Michael Jackson, but his No. 1 job is “being a good parent.” “The other things, you know, that’s a gift from God and I cherish it,” he said. “I don’t take it for granted.” He called his children and grandchildren “the pride of my life now.” Seeing them successful is “my Nobel Prize,” Jones said. Ludacris asked Jones about everything from music to marriage to money. Jones said that music saved him from a “gangster” lifestyle in his native Chicago. He learned all the brass instruments with the aim of mastering the trumpet. “As soon as I started playing, I started hearing other instruments in my head,” he said. Then he started traveling as a musician, composer and arranger. Jones told the crowd of more than 2,500 to travel the world and “get a big dream, so if you get halfway there, you’re still OK.” He advised aspiring musicians to understand the science of music and to have “humility with your creativity and grace with your success.” “It’s really important because it’s really not you,” Jones said. “You’re a terminal for a higher power.” The legendary musician and producer attributed his success to maintaining an open mind.

Obama, Billy Graham share a prayer
By PHILIP ELLIOTT The Associated Press MONTREAT, N.C. — President Barack Obama made a pilgrimage Sunday to Billy Graham’s mountainside home, concluding his North Carolina vacation with his first meeting with the ailing evangelist who has counseled commanders in chief since Dwight Eisenhower. The 48-year-old president made the short drive to Montreat from Asheville, where he spent the weekend, to see the 91-year-old Graham and son Franklin, also an evangelist. During the visit, which lasted about 30 minutes and included aides and advisers to both men, Obama had a private prayer and conversation with Billy Graham. “He is extraordinarily gratified that he took the time to meet with him,” White House spokesman Bill Burton said. Franklin Graham said his father and Obama did most of the talking. They reminisced about their roots in Chicago — Graham went to Wheaton College and began some of his ministry in the region; Obama moved to Chicago after college and began his political career there. And they talked about golf. “The conversation was very cordial, very nice,” the younger Graham said. “When the president got ready to leave, the president prayed for my father, my father prayed for him.”
“The conversation was very cordial, very nice. When the president got ready to leave, the president prayed for my father, my father prayed for him.”

Quick end to gulf oil leak depends on robot subs
By CAIN BURDEAU The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — It could take hours or it could take months to stop a 42,000-gallon-a-day oil leak polluting the Gulf of Mexico at the site of a wrecked drilling platform. Whether the environmental threat grows many times bigger depends on whether the oil company can turn the well completely off. Crews are using robot submarines to activate valves at the well head in hopes of cutting off the leak, which threatens the Gulf Coast’s fragile ecosystem of shrimp, fish, birds and coral. If the effort fails, they’ll have to start drilling again. The submarine work will take 24 to 36 hours, Doug Suttles, chief operating officer for BP Exploration and Production, said Sunday afternoon. “I should emphasize this is a highly complex operation being performed at 5,000 feet below the surface and it may not be successful,” he said. Oil continued to leak nearly a mile underwater Sunday at the site where the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded on Tuesday. Eleven workers are missing and presumed dead. For the second consecutive day, high waves prevented boats and equipment from going out to clean the spill. Airplanes sprayed chemicals to break up the oil. The spill initially appeared to be easily manageable after the oil rig sank last Thursday about 50 miles off the Louisiana coast, but it has turned into a more serious environmental problem. Officials on Saturday discovered the leak, which is spewing about as much as 1,000 barrels — or 42,000 gallons — of oil each day. The oil spill has been growing — officials said the oily sheen on the surface of the gulf covered about 600 square miles Sunday. The environmental damage would be especially serious if it reaches land. The spill was still about 70 miles from the mainland, but only about 30 miles from an important chain of barrier islands known as the Chandeleurs. The islands, part of a national wildlife refuge, are an important nesting ground for pelicans and other sea birds. They have been under serious threat since Hurricane Katrina washed out much of the sand there. “Katrina did kick it pretty good, but they have been growing back,” said Greg Thornton, the 52-yearold owner of Horn Island and Due South Charters in Biloxi. He takes fishing parties out to the islands. Looking at wind patterns on his computer, which showed more favorable conditions until Thursday, Thornton held out hope that the oil could be contained.
Graham said his father prayed for the nation and that God would give Obama wisdom in his decisions. The president prayed to thank God for Billy Graham’s life, Franklin Graham said. Billy Graham has been ailing for years, yet his son said the frail evangelist appeared as strong as ever during the conversation with Obama. “It’s like my father rises to the occasion,” he said. Afterward, Obama departed for a memorial service in West Virginia for the 29 coal miners killed in an explosion on April 5. When Obama last spoke with Billy Graham, in a telephone call in November on Graham’s birthday, they said they would try to get together as soon as possible, Burton said.
“The president wanted to meet with Rev. Graham for a while,” Burton told reporters who were kept outside the Graham compound gate. “They were going to meet during the campaign when he was here for debate prep.” Graham’s health prevented that October 2008 meeting from taking place while Obama’s campaign holed up at a resort to practice debate answers. Burton said Graham was in good enough health to take the meeting on Sunday, which came up when Obama phoned Graham to wish him a happy birthday last year. Asked about Graham’s health, Burton said: “He’s still as sharp as he ever was.” Mark DeMoss, a spokesman for the Grahams, said the White House requested the meeting several days ago. He noted that the meeting had been tentative, given the president’s schedule and Billy Graham’s unpredictable health. Billy Graham’s last crusade was in 2005, in New York. Since his wife’s death nearly three years ago, he has spent most of his time at his home. Public appearances have been rare, and his hearing and eyesight are failing. Graham’s personal spokesman, Larry Ross, said Obama’s visit was the first time a sitting president has met with Graham at his home. Franklin Graham has been
in the news recently, with the Army rescinding an invitation for him to speak at a Pentagon prayer service, citing what it said were his inappropriate comments about Islam. Franklin Graham said he and Obama spoke briefly about the Pentagon spat, with the younger Graham saying that activists with an agenda were trying to pull all religion out of the military. “I wanted to make him aware of that,” Franklin Graham said. “He said he would look into it.” Franklin Graham also said he thanked the president for his decision to have the government appeal a federal judge’s ruling that the National Day of Prayer was unconstitutional. Obama has said he plans to issue a proclamation again this year. In 2001, the younger Graham described Islam as evil. More recently, he has said he finds Islam offensive and wants Muslims to know that Jesus Christ died for their sins. Graham said he regretted that the Army felt its decision was necessary. In a statement, Graham said he would continue to pray for the troops to “give them guidance, wisdom and protection as they serve this great country.” Before the meeting with Graham, the president and first lady Michelle Obama played tennis at an Asheville resort.

The company is planning to collect leaking oil on the ocean bottom by lowering a large dome to capture the oil and using pipes and hoses to pump it into a vessel on the surface, said Suttles, the BP executive. “That system has been deployed in shallower water,” he said, “but it has never been deployed at 5,000 feet of water, so we have to be careful.” The robot submarines are attempting to close off the flow of oil by activating a shutoff device at the well head known as a blowout preventer.

Arizona rep. wants US to fight immigrant law
By JONATHAN J. COOPER The Associated Press PHOENIX — An Arizona congressman urged the Obama administration on Sunday not to cooperate when illegal immigrants are picked up by local police if a tough new state immigration law survives legal challenges. U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, a Democrat, and civil rights activists spoke to thousands of people gathered at the state Capitol and called on President Barack Obama to fight the law, promising to march in the streets and invite arrest by refusing to comply. “We’re going to overturn this unjust and racist law, and then we’re going to overturn the power structure that created this unjust, racist law,” Grijalva said. Obama has called the new law “misguided” and instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it’s legal. It requires police to question people about their immigration status — including asking for identification — if they suspect someone is in the country illegally. Opponents say it would lead to racial profiling because officers would be more likely to ask people who look Hispanic. Supporters have dismissed concerns about profiling, saying the law prohibits the use of race or nationality as the sole basis for an immigration check. Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed the measure Friday, has ordered state officials to develop a training course for officers to learn what constitutes reasonable suspicion someone is in the U.S. illegally. State Sen. Russell Pearce, the Mesa Republican who sponsored the legislation, said it’s “pretty disappointing” that opponents would call on the federal government to refuse to cooperate with Arizona authorities. “It’s outrageous that these people continue to support law breakers over law keepers,” Pearce said Sunday. Protesters, some of whom came from as far away as Texas, clustered under trees for shelter from Arizona’s searing sun and temperatures that approached 90 degrees. Police said it was peaceful and there were no clashes. Bill Baker, 60, took time off work at a downtown Phoenix restaurant to sell umbrellas and Mexican and American flags to the

largely Hispanic crowd. He said he wasn’t making much money, but he wanted to help them exercise their freedom of expression — even though he supports the law they all showed up to oppose. “If I go to another foreign country, if I go to Mexico, I have to have papers,” Baker said. “So I don’t feel there’s anything particularly harsh about the law.” He said he’s worried the bill will hurt the economy if many of Arizona’s estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants leave the state and stop spending money here. “But that’s the price you have to pay to have a lawful country,” Baker said. Current law in Arizona and most states doesn’t require police to ask about the immigration status of those they encounter, and many police departments prohibit officers from inquiring out of fear immigrants won’t cooperate in other investigations. The new law makes it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally. Immigrants unable to produce documents showing they are allowed to be in the U.S. could be arrested, jailed for up to six months and fined $2,500. Other provisions allow lawsuits against government agencies that hinder enforcement of immigration laws, and the law makes it illegal to hire illegal immigrants for day labor or knowingly transport them. Arizona officers would arrest people found to be undocumented and turn them over to federal immigration officers. Opponents said the federal government can block the law by refusing to accept them. “Our message today is: ’Mr. President we listened, and we came out in record massive numbers to support you,”’ said U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. “We need you to support us today.” Gutierrez is one of the nation’s loudest voices calling for comprehensive immigration reform that would create a pathway to citizenship for the millions of illegal immigrants now in the United States. He called on Obama to live up to a campaign promise to pass immigration reform. The Rev. Al Sharpton, speaking Sunday in New York, said that just as freedom riders battled segregation in the 1960s, he would organize “freedom walkers” to challenge the Arizona bill.

Parents accepting of ‘questioning’ daughter
More opportunities than usual to function freely and independently are likely to be possible for you in the year ahead. Those things you found restrictive in your life will now either be eliminated or substantially reduced. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Taking on several goals of equal significance won’t faze you one bit today. Your good attitude helps you keep everything in perspective, allowing you to function well at what you’re doing at the moment. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Continue on the path that has recently proven so successful for you, even if good things are only happening for you in one area. With time you might be able to apply it to other areas. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Place your focus on important matters that you’re anxious to complete. If you put them on the top of your list of priorities, there’s a good chance you will get everything done. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you stop and think about it, chances are you’ll have far more choices about what you could achieve than you realize. Make a list and sort out the things of most importance to do first. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -It is likely to come to your attention that your financial picture is brighter than you thought. You have two additional channels you could tap into that would generate gains. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Gamble only on your own ingenuity and resourcefulness rather than on someone else’s if you want the greatest odds for achieving success. You can’t control what another does, but you can control what you do. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Let associates think a great idea of your own was generated by them if you want their cooperation. Results, not pats on the back or applause, are the only thing that counts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You’re very much on the minds of those who have your best interests at heart, so it shouldn’t take much for them to do special things for you today without being asked. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Motivation is always the key to getting you involved in achieving something big that could be of considerable worth. When that’s in place, your chances for fulfillment are excellent. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Try not to take yourself or a big situation too seriously if you find yourself dealing with a touchy subject. The looser you are about handling everything, the better you’ll function. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Lucky you, because you could be in the right spot at the right time to gain in some manner from a development originated by another. If asked to jump on board, be an appreciative hitchhiker. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The fact that you’re a self-starter and not dependent on others to get you what you want is the reason why you’ll be so successful today. You will supply the initiative you need to achieve your goals.

Dysfunctional death penalty gets spotlight
By PAUL ELIAS The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — Chelsea King’s parents reluctantly agreed to a sentence of life in prison for their daughter’s rapist and killer, calling the death penalty in California “an empty promise.” The Kings join a growing list of victims’ families, law enforcement officials and other capital punishment proponents who have grown disillusioned with California’s death penalty. The decision to forego capital punishment for registered sex offender John Gardner, who this month admitted killing Chelsea King and another teen girl, has once again thrust the gridlocked system into the spotlight. Five more inmates joined California’s death row this year, pushing the population past a record 700 inmates, by far the nation’s largest. Florida is second with 394 inmates on death row, and Texas is third with 333, but both of those states regularly carry out executions. Legal challenges over how lethal injections are administered to condemned prisoners in California have halted executions in the state since Clarence Ray Allen was put to death Jan. 17, 2006. The lawsuits are far from being resolved, and most observers believe it could be years before another execution takes place at San Quentin Prison. Even before the suspension, only 13 condemned inmates have been executed from the time capital punishment resumed in the state in 1977 until February 2006, when U.S. District Court Jeremy Fogel halted executions until prison officials revamped their lethal injection process. After a lengthy regulatory review, the Department
of Corrections is expected to issue the long-awaited new protocols this week. Still, state and federal judges must approve the new regulations before executions can resume — and lawyers challenging the death penalty promise to vigorously attack the new protocols as inadequate. California Chief Justice Ron George told the California Commission on the Fair Administration of Justice that the state’s capital punishment system is “dysfunctional.” Death penalty appeals account for 25 percent of the high court’s workload, he has said. “Most of us realize a death sentence at this time is a hollow promise in California,” San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said at the news conference with the King family announcing that Gardner would plead guilty in exchange for a life sentence.
