Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869
Delphos, Ohio ed at the county courthouse.” Hall concluded with a poem titled “Veterans Day” by Roger L. Jones. VFW Ladies Auxiliary President Cathy Hughes also read a poem entitled “They Did Their Share,” by Joanna Fuchs. Sharon Miller of the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary also had a few words to say. “Waging war involves more than just the combatants who fight to the death on the field of battle. The fighting forces begin at the fireside and in the hometowns. The repercussions of war’s terrible brutality have chilled the hearts and dimmed the hopes and the dreams of many a loved one left behind on the home front,” she said. “While the horrors of the battlefield may not have been our experience, we have lived with terrifying loneliness created to answer an aggressor’s challenge.” VFW Commander Jim Weeden acted as Master of Ceremonies for the program. “I just want to thank everyone for coming out here today and remembering the veterans, past and present,” Weeden said. “We just ask that you keep those who are serving in your prayers and if you see a veteran today, stop and thank them. It doesn’t take much to make a man feel good about what he’s sacrificed.” A meal was served at the American Legion following the program.

Obama claims strengthened hand in global dealings
By ERICA WERNER The Associated Press YOKOHAMA, Japan — President Barack Obama claimed a stronger hand on the world stage today despite electoral defeats at home, failure to get a free-trade agreement with South Korea and lackluster international support for his get-tough policy with China on trade and currency disputes. “It wasn’t any easier to talk about currency when I was first elected and my poll numbers were at 65 percent,” Obama argued at the close of the G-20 summit, after bluntly accusing Beijing of undervaluing its currency. The president flew to Japan for the APEC summit without the coveted trade pact with Korea or a united front with other countries against China’s currency policy. He also endured a gusher of criticism from other countries about a decision by the U.S. central bank to pump $600 billion into the U.S. economy, something China, Germany and others believe could weaken the dollar and lead to inflation. After the talks here beginning Saturday, Obama will return to the U.S. to confront Republicans empowered by their gains in this month’s mid-term elections. Even so, the president contended that his standing with world leaders is not diminished. “When I came into office people might have been interested in more photo-ops,” the president said, because of the “hoopla surrounding my election.” But he contended he has now developed genuine friendships with leaders including Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and South Korean President Lee Myung Bak — and even Chinese President Hu Jintao. “That doesn’t mean there
“It needs to be speeded up. Government cannot hire back the 8 million people that lost jobs. That needs to be done by the private sector.”
— President Obama on joblessness in US aren’t going to be differences,” the president added. Those have been on stark display throughout the G-20 summit, which resulted in a final document in which leaders agreed on various measures to achieve economic stability, none of them enforceable or specific. Obama contended this constituted victory nonetheless, even as he acknowledged that America’s place in the world has changed — and even if he wouldn’t say his had. Whereas the U.S. had been the dominant superpower, “We are now seeing a situation where a whole host of other countries are doing well and coming into their own and naturally they’re going to be more assertive ... and that’s a healthy thing,” the president said. Obama told a news conference here that progress was made in stabilizing and strengthening the global economy, saying it is now back on “the path of recovery.” But he also said that nations “risk slipping back” into peril if they don’t work harder to foster sustained growth, end unfair trade practices and currency manipulation. Obama argued that “countries with large surpluses must shift away from unhealthy dependency on exports” and said that exchange rates “must reflect economic realities.” China’s currency “is

undervalued,” the president declared, adding that Beijing “spends enormous amounts of money” to keep the yuan in that condition. He said that it’s critical for China, “in a gradual fashion,” to let markets set the currency’s value. But Obama’s summit partners declined to endorse his position, issuing a watereddown statement saying only they agreed to refrain from “competitive devaluation” of currencies. Using a slightly different wording favored by the U.S. — “competitive undervaluation” — would have shown the G-20 taking a stronger stance on China’s currency policy. Of criticism from Germany and other quarters that the Federal Reserve Board engaged in what amounts to currency manipulation by purchasing $600 billion in U.S. Treasury bonds, the president said the move “was not designed to have an impact on the currency, the dollar. It was designed to grow the economy.” On the global economy, Obama said that while improvements have been made in a number of areas, he and other leaders recognize “progress hasn’t come quickly enough,” particularly in the area of job creation. “We have a recovery,” he said when asked about lingering high joblessness in America. “It needs to be speeded up. Government cannot hire back the 8 million people that lost jobs. That needs to be done by the private sector,” he said of the economic woes back home in the United States. Obama reiterated his intent to finalize a longsought trade agreement with South Korea. A major sticking point remains access to the South Korean market for U.S. autos, but the president expressed confidence that the deal will get done. See OBAMA, page 2

Pakistan bomb shows militant reach
By SHAKIL ADIL The Associated Press KARACHI, Pakistan — Islamist militants who attacked a police facility in the heart of Pakistan’s largest city were attempting to free comrades they believed were detained there, a senior minister said today. The coordinated assault late Thursday in Karachi, using a car bomb and guns far from Taliban and alwww.delphosherald.com Qaida heartlands along the Afghan border, showed the ability of militants to strike back despite being hit by U.S. drone strikes and Pakistani army operations. A gang of around six gunmen managed to penetrate a high-security area of Karachi that is home to the U.S Consulate, two luxury hotels and the offices of regional leaders. They opened fire on the offices of the Crime Investigation Department before detonating a huge car bomb that leveled the building and others nearby.

Earlier this week, the agency arrested six members of Lashkar-eJhangvi, an al-Qaida linked group blamed for several high profile attacks in recent years. The suspects were presented before a court earlier Thursday. “The terrorists were well prepared and they had came here to rescue their associates. But under a strategy, we had not kept those men at this building. So their plan failed,” said Qaim Ali Shah, the chief minister of Sindh province, of which Karachi is the capital. He did not say how he knew that the gang was attempting a rescue and not simply attacking the building, the type of strike that militants in Pakistan have often carried out in the past. Shah and other officials have not said whether the attackers escaped or where killed in the blast, which left a crater 10-feet (3-meter) wide in the floor.

But the city had largely escaped a wave of violence last year that saw many attacks in Lahore, Peshawar and other cities. “These attacks which are happening around the country, they are carried out by enemies of the nation,” said Karachi resident Faisal Mehmood. “It is not in Islam that you kill your brothers.” The government has declared war on the militants, and the army has moved into several areas in the northwest close to Afghanistan where the fighters are primarily based. The United States has increased the tempo of missile strikes in the region over the last two months, with close to 100 this year alone.

GAMBIER (AP) — A pickup truck belonging to a missing Ohio woman was found on the campus of Kenyon College, prompting a lockdown at the school on Thursday night, officials said. Knox County Sheriffs deputies were searching for two women and two children who were reported missing, WBNS-TV reported. Deputies and investigators from the state’s Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation spent several hours searching a home on Apple Valley Road, where they say there were signs of a struggle, according to the station. The Knox County Sheriff’s office, BCII and Kenyon College safety office declined to comment on the situation. Kenyon College, about 50 miles northeast of Columbus, was put on lockdown between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., after the pickup truck was found abandoned at the Brown Family Environmental Center. The sheriff’s office told the school that the vehicle was believed to be connected to a crime scene. The vehicle has been removed from the campus. An e-mail sent to Kenyon students, rovided to The Associated Press, says “local law enforcement advised of a potentially dangerous person in the vicinity.” The campus-wide lockdown is in place until 7 a.m.

GOP could block gov’s appointments
COLUMBUS (AP) — Some top Republican Ohio senators are threatening to block the outgoing Democratic governor’s selection of people who help choose textbooks, set tuitions, oversee millions of dollars in investments or hand out state money. Gov. Ted Strickland’s party was swept out of power Nov. 2, but he remains on the job until Jan. 10, when GOP Gov.-elect John Kasich takes the helm. The Senate, led by Kasich’s fellow Republicans, is considering wholesale rejection of Strickland’s appointments to dozens of state boards and commissions — taking away a key power traditionally allowed lame duck governors. The move could affect about 200 appointments the governor is authorized to make before leaving office and some made before the election that are not yet confirmed. Term-limited Republican Senate President Bill Harris and his heir apparent to lead the chamber, Tom Niehaus, say a final decision hasn’t been made. But they said the chamber wants Kasich to have maximum flexibility for filling the positions. Harris said some of Strickland’s appointees may have different perspectives on policy than Kasich — and the Senate would be looking at other nominees who would have influence in policy decisions. “I think the new governor deserves the right to have people that understand him and understand what he wants to do as governor to be in those critical policy positions,” Harris said. At least three other Republicans in the GOP-led Senate go further, saying they would vote to reject unconfirmed Strickland appointees who don’t resign. The three — Keith Faber, David Goodman and Jim Hughes — made their statements in interviews

Action, not talk: Deficit panel pushes Dems, GOP
By ANDREW TAYLOR and CHARLES BABINGTON The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The leaders of the deficit commission are baldly calling out the budget myths of both political parties, challenging lawmakers to engage in the “adult conversation” they say they want. Their plan — mixing painful cuts to Social Security and Medicare with big tax increases — has no chance of enactment as written, certainly not as a whole. But the commission’s high profile will make it harder for Republicans and Democrats to simply keep reciting their tax and spending talking points without acknowledging the real sacrifices that progress against government deficits would demand. It’s time for both conservatives and liberals to “put up or shut up,” says Jon Cowan, head of the centristDemocratic group Third Way, which praised the bold new proposals and urged politicians to show courage. Republicans failed to produce their often-promised deficit reductions when they controlled the government, Cowan said, and Democrats refuse to acknowledge that entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare must be trimmed. Already, some top elected officials — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, for one — have declared Wednesday’s proposals by President Barack Obama’s bipartisan commission unacceptable. Others still say deficits can be reduced in relatively easy ways, a notion that few mainstream economists accept. There’s no need to trim Social Security, Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., a tea party favorite, said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” “If we can just cut the administrative waste,” he said, “we can cut hundreds of billions of dollars a year at the federal level.” Well, no. As amply demonstrated by the panel’s co-chairmen — former Clinton White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles and retired Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo. — taming the deficit requires real pain all around. One person’s government “waste” is another’s essential program. The co-chairmen’s ideas, which they agree are simply a starting point, include calls to raise the Social Security retirement age and reduce scheduled benefit increases, whack the Pentagon budget, cut farm subsidies and increase the federal tax on gasoline by 15 cents a gallon. The most vocal critics of the plan, which would cut spending by $3 for every $1 raised through higher taxes, are Democrats. Many will strongly oppose the bid to slowly raise the Social Security retirement age to 69. Republicans, especially three commission members appointed by incoming House Speaker John Boehner, are

Murkowski cries foul in ballot count
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s campaign declared she’s headed for re-election, saying her rival’s unverified voter fraud claims and frivolous challenges of write-in ballots are pointing to his desperation. Murkowski, whose hopes for another term hinge on her winning a write-in effort, undisputedly held 89.8 percent of that vote with 45,132 ballots counted so far. That’s enough for her campaign to feel she’s poised to win, in spite of thousands of outstanding ballots yet to be uncounted and a pending legal case. Another 9.5 percent of write-in ballots were challenged, though most of those were counted toward Murkowski’s tally — coming on objections over misspellings or penmanship. Shortly after the second day of write-in ballot counting began on Thursday, a Miller observer challenged a vote for Murkowski that appeared to have her name spelled and printed correctly, though the “L” in “Lisa” was in cursive handwriting. Later, at least 10 ballots in which Murkowski’s name appeared readable were challenged, including one in which the vote read: “Lisa Murkowski Republican.” Miller’s campaign said observers are simply challenging votes that don’t meet the strict letter of the law — including those with minor misspellings of Murkowski’s name or those with legibility or penmanship issues. “The Murkowski campaign can say whatever it wants,” Chip Gerhardt, a Miller observer and attorney sent to the state by the National Republican Senatorial Committee. “What’s going on here, our focus is on following the law.” Murkowski spokesman John Tracy sees it this way: “What this says to us is, they’re simply trying to delay the inevitable.” The law calls for write-in ballots to have the oval filled in and either the candidate’s last name or the name as it appears on their declaration of candidacy scrawled in — in this case, either “Murkowski” or “Lisa Murkowski.” But the state is using discretion to discern voter intent, pointing to prior case law as their basis in doing so. State Division of Elections director Gail Fenumiai, the final arbiter in the counting process, said if the name is phonetic to Murkowski or there are minor misspellings, she’s counting it for Murkowski. It’s an effort aimed at not disenfranchising any voters. The percentage of challenged votes is key: If a judge agrees that they don’t meet the legal standard of votes for Murkowski and tosses them aside, Miller’s camp says it would make the race very tight, possibly forcing a recount or. Murkowski attorney Ben Ginbserg countered that case law makes clear this is a state that heavily favors voter intent. Miller has filed a federal lawsuit, seeking to bar the state from counting ballots that do not meet the standards set out in law. Briefings in the matter are set for next week.
Arms pact with Russia looks shaky
By DESMOND BUTLER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senate approval of President Barack Obama’s nuclear arms treaty with Russia, which once looked close to a sure thing, is now in jeopardy. The administration is scrambling to get enough Republican support in the Senate to ratify the New START treaty before the Democrats’ majority shrinks by six in January. But Republicans have little incentive to give Obama a big political boost after leaving him reeling from their strong gains in last week’s congressional elections. A failure to win passage could trip up one of the administration’s top foreign policy goals: improving relations with Russia. The treaty, signed in April by Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, has been the most tangible sign of success, and failure to get it ratified could be viewed as a rebuke in Moscow. It also would leave Obama’s push for even greater restrictions on the world’s nuclear arsenal in doubt. Some Republicans have argued that the treaty would limit U.S. missile defense options and does not provide adequate procedures to verify that Russia is living up to its terms. Advocates dispute both charges. A broader Republican fear is that the treaty is a small step toward weakening the U.S. nuclear deterrent. Though the treaty would only modestly affect the current U.S. arsenal, many Republicans see Obama’s vision of a gradual elimination of the world’s nuclear weapons as unrealistic. They argue that U.S. nuclear might is critical for American security and global stability. The Obama administration is worried that ratification could slip out of reach if a vote were to be delayed. Ellen Tauscher, the undersecretary of state for arms control, said this week that the lame-duck session Congress will convene before most newly elected senators take their seats in January could be the administration’s last shot. “Our last opportunity to do it coming forward is in the lame duck,” she said. “I think
likely to balk at tax increases Opinion is split on whether 14 of the panel’s 18 members will ultimately agree on a plan. That’s the number needed to demonstrate bipartisan support and send the measure to the Senate and, maybe, the House for a vote. Either way, commission members are unlikely to produce actual legislation that could become law. But they could bless a set of recommendations that would put lawmakers on record for or against a serious deficit-reduction recipe. The panel was created out of both parties’ frustration with the government’s chronic inability to control budget deficits and the national debt. The idea is that Republicans and Democrats might join hands and vote for an unpopular mix of tax increases and program reductions because the shame and hypocrisy of doing nothing would be too great. Obama created the commission after the Senate rejected a plan by Sens. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., and Judd Gregg, R-N.H., to establish a similar but stronger panel comprised exclusively of lawmakers and administration officials. Creation of the Bowles-Simpson commission was a promise required to get Senate Democrats to cast a politically perilous vote last January to allow the government to go a whopping $1.9 trillion deeper in debt. Days later, Obama proposed a budget mostly devoid of tough choices, leaving it to the commission to propose solutions.
Hopes low for bipartisan cooperation
By LIZ SIDOTI The Associated Press WASHINGTON — This is one pessimistic country. Most Americans harbor doubts that President Barack Obama and resurgent Republicans can work together to solve the nation’s problems, according to the latest Associated Press-GfK poll. In fact, many lack confidence that last week’s elections will change much of anything in Washington. People are far more negative about the ultimate impact of the first big elections of Obama’s presidency — in which the GOP made huge gains across the country — than they were about the results two years ago when voters elected the Democrat and padded his party’s House and Senate majorities. Hope? It’s more like nope. “I don’t think they’re going to reach any compromise at all on anything,” Dan Dore, a pilot from Freeland, Mich., said Wednesday. “They say, ’Yah, we’re going to play nice,’ but when it comes time to get anything done, I just don’t believe it will happen. We hear the same rhetoric every two years, every four years, every six years.” “I have faith in the system. I have very very little faith in the people involved in the system,” regardless of political affiliation, added Dore, 42 and an independent voter. Just a week after the GOP benefited from change-craving voters looking to punish the party in power, Americans are much less optimistic that Republicans in Congress will be able to implement the policies they promised than they were about Obama making good on his campaign promises in 2008. And only about half expect that the GOP’s policies will improve the economy. The economy is still by far the largest issue facing the country, with the unemployment rate stuck at 9.6 percent. And it tops the list of what both Obama and Republicans said they’ll focus on in the
that, frankly, because of the way the numbers are working, it’s the best opportunity to do it.” Republicans will gain one vote part of the way through the lame-duck session because they won a special election for Obama’s former seat in Illinois. That will increase the GOP’s Senate numbers temporarily to 42 in the 100-member chamber. Since the election, senior administration officials, including Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, have been pressing the case for ratification with Republican lawmakers. A long list of retired generals and senior statesmen from both parties have expressed support, arguing that that the treaty should be beyond politics. But its best shot seems to lie in a political deal with one key Republican senator. Republican Jon Kyl has wielded the most sway in his party on the issue. He has been negotiating with the administration for months and pinning support for the treaty to a boost in funding to modernize the U.S. stockpile of nuclear weapons.

coming year. Voters could punish everyone come 2012 — when Obama is up for re-election and when voters will render a verdict on Republican rule in the House — if they don’t see progress being made. Both Obama and House Republican leader John Boehner, the House speaker-to-be, have indicated a willingness to try to work together. But they also have suggested there are limits to how far each is willing to bend. On the other side of Capitol Hill, Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell has said that his top political priority over the next two years should be to deny Obama a second term in office. “When the administration agrees with the American people, we will agree with the administration. When it disagrees with the American people, we won’t,” McConnell, R-Ky., said last week. Is it any wonder Americans have little belief that all sides will come together?

White’s late TD lifts Falcons over Ravens 26-21
By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press ATLANTA — Roddy White knew he got away with one. Judging by that smile on his face, he sure wasn’t bothered by it. After pushing off a defender, White hauled in a 33-yard touchdown pass from Matt Ryan with 20 seconds left, giving the Atlanta Falcons a thrilling 26-21 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night in a game touted as a possible Super Bowl preview. It sure lived up to the hype. Baltimore rallied from a 13-point deficit in the fourth quarter on a pair of TD passes by Joe Flacco, the last of them a 9-yarder to Todd Heap with 1:05 remaining. “You think it’s your game,” Flacco said. “You think it’s over.” Not so fast. Not with 65 seconds left for Ryan and White to work their magic. “After they scored, we were on the sideline. We just looked at each other and smiled, man,” White said. “We just relish moments like this. We knew we were going to go down there and get what we needed to win this game.” Ryan needed less than a minute to pull off an 80-yard drive, hooking up with Michael Jenkins on a huge third-down pass along the sideline before going back to his favorite receiver for the winner. Ryan rolled to his left to get away from the pressure and White shoved off Josh Wilson with his right hand to get free, sending the cornerback tumbling to the turf. Ryan delivered the ball perfectly, White caught it with no one around and cruised into the end zone. Wilson hopped up, screaming for a penalty. But the official kept the yellow flag in his back pocket and held up both arms. Touchdown. White knew he got away with one. White was listed as questionable for the game after hurting his right knee in last Sunday’s win over Tampa Bay and practicing only once during the short week. But he had a big smile when he danced out of the tunnel during the pregame introductions and clearly wasn’t bothered. He finished with 12 catches for 138 yards, giving him a staggering 70 catches for the season. Ryan threw a careerhigh 50 passes, completing 32 of them for 316 yards and three touchdowns. Ryan improved to 18-1 when starting at home. Flacco, coming back from a sluggish start, was 22-of34 for 215 yards and three touchdowns of his own. Not quite enough. “It was a playoff atmosphere against a playoff-caliber team,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “Obviously, it’s difficult when you play a team like that in their place. Being in this environment will help us later in the season.” With Commissioner Roger Goodell looking on, just adding to the big-game feel, the Falcons (7-2) appeared to be in control after Ryan went to White for a 4-yard touchdown with 11:34 remaining to make it 20-7. Curiously, Falcons coach Mike Smith didn’t attempt a 2-point conversion, which nearly came back to bite him. After barely touching the ball in the first half, Baltimore (6-3) suddenly came alive. Flacco capped back-to-back
DELPHOS — Youth are under the gun, with all the choices — good or bad — that they are facing in today’s world. One man is trying to do something about it — John Radich. The long-distance runner — usually ultramarathons — began a running trek on the Fourth of July following the historic Route 66 — as much as he could — throughout America to support healthier choices for youth in support of the Way to Happiness Foundation. That trek took him through Delphos recently. “I’ve been running since I was 16, increasing in seriousness and length along the way; I have run in competitive races and marathons all over the world. This is one of the few times I’ve run for a cause beyond competition,” the Monrovia, California native said. “I wanted to try the Bunion Derby — a race they have been running since the 1930s — and I went to my coach then. His advice was to wait and have a reason for doing something such as that. Well, I waited 40 years.” His reason now is the Foundation; at other times, he has run for human rights, so this is not a completely new thing for the runner. “I’m trying to help promote better nutrition, for example, and other character-building programs to help make other choices that youth must do daily. The Way to Happiness Foundation is a worldwide organization whose mission is to halt the moral decline of America,” he explained. “Kids especially are being lured into drugs, gangs, crime and other things that are hurting them; I want to help with the restoration of America, especially for our
youngsters. This is my way to make a difference. “I do some public speaking along the way and I have been supported by a lot of other runners. That is a big help to me.” He started the quest in Santa Monica, California. He wants to get to at least Atlantic City, New Jersey, sometime after Thanksgiving and if his 56-year-old body holds up, he wants to end up in New York City. He has found many new friends along the way in his journey, which he says averages 35-40 miles a day; when it is done, he figures his trip will cover around 2,500 miles. “I have found a lot of people willing to help with this endeavor. I have crew chiefs in many states, some set up beforehand but many found along the way,” he continued. “For example, Mike Hayward (from Findlay) is my crew chief for Ohio. Someone who had helped me previously got a hold of him.” “I have a friend in Indiana who had helped John and he thought this would be a nice thing for me to be involved in. He called me up and here I am,” Hayward chimed in. “I am honored to be a part of this. It’s a great foundation and a good purpose for him to be involved in.” Radich has gone through extremes in weather, including 122-degree days in Arizona, wind, rain and cooling temperatures as the autumn months have set in. He has traveled through big cites like Chicago and small, metropolitan areas and villages, places like the Indian reservations in Arizona; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and has found good people willing to help along the way. “I’ve run in ultramarathons through Death Valley nine times and all over the world, so that was good preparation. Still, I’m 56 years

Long-distance runner John Radich, right, and his crew chief in Ohio, Mike Hayward, stopped in Delphos recently during the former’s Running Across America tour. Radich is promoting healthy alternatives for youth during his tour following the historic Route 66. old; I will have to see how I’m doing physically when I reach Atlantic City; if my knees hold up, I will continue to New York City,” he added. “At times, I’ve had racers run with me. I know Ed Ditmeyer from Delphos as a runner. I have a baby stroller — with no baby, of course — that I carry my supplies in. I had some money built up because there are times I’m on my own — I’ve slept in a tent — but many times, I get help from a lot of wonderful people. I have slept in people’s homes at times and been given food and money along the way. Other times, I’ve had to fend for my own but it’s worth it. “Police departments all over have been great. Again, it’s very satisfying to run for a good cause. America is not perfect but it is the greatest place to live in on earth.”

drives in the fourth quarter with touchdown passes. The Falcons dominated the first half, holding the ball for more than 21 minutes and going to the locker room with a 10-0 lead. The Ravens were fortunate it wasn’t worse. Late in the first quarter, Ryan started a drive that would stretch into the second period and wind up covering 91 yards on 14 plays. He finished it with a short pass to a wide-open Jason Snelling out of the backfield. He worked up a head of steam, broke free from an attempted tackle by Dawan Landry and tumbled into the end zone for a 28-yard touchdown. Atlanta got close again just before halftime but wound up settling for Matt Bryant’s 28-yard field goal. Ryan completed 20-of-28 for 160 yards in the opening half, playing keep-away with the Ravens offense. Flacco had just 31 yards passing at the break and the third quarter didn’t start out very well, either. Trying to stretch the field with a pass to T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Flacco threw it a little short and Brent Grimes made the interception.
The Associated Press MIAMI — Ray Allen hit his first seven 3-point tries and finished with 35 points, Paul Pierce added 25 and the Celtics led wire-to-wire in a 112-107 win over Miami on Thursday night, beating the Heat for the second time this season and handing them a second straight home loss. Boston has won 13 of the last 14 regular-season meetings in addition to eliminating Miami in the opening round of last season’s playoffs. Then, the Celtics ended the LeBron James era in Cleveland a couple of weeks later, setting the wheels in motion for James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to team up in Miami.
Rajon Rondo finished with 16 assists and Kevin Garnett had 16 points and 13 rebounds for Boston, which led by as many as 20. James finished with 35 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, narrowly missing his second straight triple-double. Wade was held to eight points on 2-for-12 shooting. The Heat got within 110107 on Udonis Haslem’s free throws with 13.3 seconds left but Allen hit a pair of free throws to seal it. The Celtics also topped the Heat 88-80 in the season opener Oct. 26. Nuggets 118, Lakers 112 DENVER — Carmelo Anthony had 32 points and 13 rebounds to rally Denver
past Los Angeles, handing the Lakers their first loss of the season. Kobe Bryant scored a season-high 34 points and Pau Gasol had 17 points and 20 rebounds for the Lakers, who were trying to win their first nine games for the first time since the 1997-98 season. Nene had 18 points and Ty Lawson 17 for the Nuggets, who snapped a 2-game skid. Down 105-103, the Nuggets took over. A 3-pointer by J.R. Smith and two baskets by Anthony sparked an 11-0 run that gave Denver the lead for good. The 2-time defending NBA champions led by 10 early in the fourth when the Nuggets rallied behind Lawson. The
speedy point guard scored 11 points in a 16-0 run that gave them a 101-95 lead. Bulls 120, Warriors 90 CHICAGO — Luol Deng scored 26 points, Derrick Rose had 22 and Chicago raced to a 30-point lead in the first half against weary Golden State. Rose added 13 assists for his third double-double of the season. He finished one assist shy of his career best, which he’s increased twice already this season. Monta Ellis had 24 points to lead the Warriors, who pulled out a 122-117 victory in New York on Wednesday night. Stephen Curry added 17 points for Golden State, which played without ailing forward David Lee.
In the beginning, there was the multimedia superstar Glenn Beck summoning his tea party congregation to a faith-friendly “Restoring Honor” rally on the National Mall. And behold, two postmodern prophets witnessed this media storm and decided it was good. In response, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central organized their pre-election “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.” Colbert, a progressive Catholic Sundayschool teacher who pretends to be a rightwing blowhard, provided the fake “fear” factor. In his upside-down catechism, preaching “fear” became the same thing as advocating that nonpartisan virtue -“hope.” The prophet of sanity was Jon Stewart. With his snarky call for rationality and civility, the “Daily Show” anchor implied that his critics were preaching insanity, irrationality and incivility. And, for once, he didn’t season his satire with ironic shots at his own Jewish roots. Truth is, Stewart has become a hero for many Jews and a controversial figure for others, noted Jane Eisner, editor of The
Jon Stewart’s rally included religious tensions
Friday, November 12, 2010
The Herald —7
Jewish Daily Forward. Stewart has once again been named to the “Forward 50,” the newspaper’s list of those who made a “significant impact on the Jewish story in the past year.” “This is very impressionistic,” Eisner said. “We try to identify people who are acting in ways that impact the Jewish community. ... We are looking for people who are acting in ways that really show the impact of their Jewish values, whether we’re talking about Judaism as a faith or a culture.” Many Jews have “real questions about how Jewishly Stewart acts.” Nevertheless, said Eisner, “if we can translate this into Jewish terms, he keeps showing us that he knows his stuff, even as he makes fun of the fine details of Jewish life.”
The Hollywood Jew blog noted: “For some Jews it’s perplexing that Jon Stewart, an American Jewish icon, isn’t religious. How could the Jew who makes Jewish ‘cool’ be so indifferent to Judaism? ... Buried beneath the laughter from his jokes ... is a deep and hidden disappointment that he isn’t really doing what we’re doing.” This is, after all, a man who flaunts his bacon cheeseburgers on Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar. These religious tensions were visible on the National Mall during the StewartColbert rally. While organizers insisted their event was nonpartisan, and pleaded with participants to temper their words and deeds, the crowd included flocks of people who clearly were there to mock the views of religious and secular conservatives. Consider, for example, the inevitable Hitler signs. When announcing his rally, Stewart said he planned to distribute signs that were both civil and witty. One sign, for example, would say: “I Disagree With You, But I’m Pretty Sure You’re Not Hitler.” Many got the message, but some didn’t. Someone produced signs containing imag-
es of prominent conservatives -- with Hitler mustaches -- and the headline, “Afraid yet?” Beck, Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh made the sign, along with Rep. John Boehner of Ohio, almost certainly the next speaker of the House, and Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, the likely House majority leader. Cantor is Jewish and, like Stewart, made the “Forward 50” list for 2010. As his rally ended, Stewart soberly admitted that he could not control “what people think this was.” “I can only tell you my intentions,” he said. “This was not a rally to ridicule people of faith, or people of activism, or to look down our noses at the heartland, or passionate argument, or to suggest that times are not difficult, and that we have nothing to fear. They are, and we do. “But we live now in hard times -- not end times.” (Terry Mattingly is director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the GetReligion.org project to study religion and the news.)

Popcorn OK on Gott diet
DEAR DR. GOTT: I started your diet six days ago. I have lost one pound and am thrilled. I wonder if I can eat popcorn as a snack while on your diet. I pop it in olive oil and don’t use butter. DEAR READER: Congratulations on your initial success. A weight loss of about one pound per week is average and healthful while on my no-flour, nosugar diet. You can eat popcorn on my diet, but be careful about what type you choose. Air-popped is the best, because it doesn’t require any fat. But if you choose to pop it in oil, olive is the best. After popping, you can sprinkle on seasonings, such as garlic powder, chili powder or even a little salt. Remember, moderation is key, especially with regard to salt intake. DEAR DR. GOTT: I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your column. Two years ago, I had been suffering from night sweats owing to perimenopause, and your column advised taking bee pollen. I tried it, and within just a few days, my night sweats all but disappeared. I kept taking the bee pollen (1,000 milligrams daily) for a few months and then stopped, thinking I didn’t need it anymore. Several months passed with no sweats, but recently they began again, as well as periodic daytime hot flashes. I went back on the bee pollen and, again, after just a few days, I don’t have any more sweating, day or night! I just wanted to pass this on to you and your readers, and to thank you, again, for your wonderful advice. DEAR READER: Thank you for your kind comments. I am happy to have helped. Bee pollen has been used for years. It is touted to cure certain health problems and to be an exceptionally nutritious food. It has undergone years of research, but so far, nothing can be confirmed. However, there is a plethora of anecdotal information

about its use and benefits, especially online. Bee pollen is simply pollen that is collected from the bodies of bees. It has vitamins, minerals, protein, fats and carbohydrates and may even contain some bee saliva. Available in many health-food stores, it can be found as a supplement or in skin-softening products. Some even claim that it can be beneficial in treating or even curing, asthma, allergies, alcoholism, stomach upset and more, but remember that none of this has been proven scientifically.

If you suffer from allergies to pollen, this supplement may cause a serious or even life-threatening reaction, so it is important to talk to your physician before using it. It shouldn’t be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women but otherwise appears to be safe for short-term use. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Menopause.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order payable to Newsletter and mailed to Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off my website at www. AskDrGottMD.com. DEAR DR. GOTT: Your article on seizures was totally garbled and seriously incorrect in places. I’m an epileptologist. DEAR DOCTOR: I apologize for any errors that may have appeared, but your brief note is not very helpful in explaining how and where I went wrong, if indeed I did. Perhaps next time you want to tell someone he did wrong, you could elaborate just a bit. For my readers, an epileptologist is a neurologist who specializes in epilepsy. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

Saturday, Nov. 13, 2010 Seek some new social outlets in coming months if you can, because they will expose you to a lot of fresh ideas and many new contacts. Enlarging your circle of friends and acquaintances brings multiple new experiences as well as fringe benefits. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Start rehashing old issues and watch how quickly the domestic tranquility within your household disappears. Instead, spend your energy finding ways to heal past wounds. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Pleas for assistance are likely to be ignored if you demand that others drop what they’re doing and do your bidding instead of asking nicely for help. Be considerate. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Determine in advance how much you can afford to spend on nonessentials, and then stick to it. If you go out shopping and are unstructured, you are likely to be excessively extravagant. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - The major thing that can defeat you is your inclination to oversell. Once your prospect starts nodding in consent, turn off your pitch and close the sale. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - One of the smartest things you could do is to adjust your agenda to suit others. Once you have people comfortably working at your side, everything will go smoothly for you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - It’s likely to be one of those days when your temper is on edge, making you a bit grumpy and cantankerous. If you don’t want people to keep you at arm’s length, lighten up. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Avoid a tendency to behave in a pushy manner in order to show others just how tough you are. Unfortunately, the only thing this kind of behavior will do for you is make you unpopular. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Even though you enjoy a good debate from time to time, nothing will be gained from arguing with someone whose philosophical outlook is diametrically opposed to yours. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Back off rather than project yourself into a complicated matter of another’s that doesn’t concern you. All you would be doing is asking for trouble where none now exists. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Don’t allow a disagreement between you and your mate to arise when out in public. If the matter is disturbing, wait until you can discuss it with him/her in the privacy of your own home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) The only work you can expect to get done today is that which you do yourself. Depending upon others to automatically take care of something you think needs tending is folly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Avoid taking any kind of risk on something that requires you to bank on another who is a known bungler. This person’s batting average isn’t likely to change, and the odds are you’ll lose.

Passengers’ cruise experience not full of splendor
By ELLIOTT SPAGAT and JULIE WATSON The Associated Press SAN DIEGO — Karen Blocker’s dream cruise began disintegrating at dawn when her cabin started rattling “like an earthquake.” “I told my daughter: ’This boat is not moving anymore. We’ve got to get out,”’ Blocker said. She opened the door to find a hallway filled with smoke and crew members telling passengers to head for the lifeboats. The boats turned out to be unnecessary, but the scare was just the start of a three-day ordeal for the 50-year-old Blocker and nearly 4,500 other passengers and crew aboard the stricken Carnival Splendor. It wasn’t until tugboats hauled the 952-foot cruise liner into a San Diego dock Thursday that weary passengers were able to tell their stories to the world. Their ship lost power after an engine fire Monday and was adrift about 200 miles outside San Diego and 44 miles off the coast of Mexico. At that distance from land, it was out of cell phone range for much of the ordeal. The fire left the ship without air conditioning, hot water or hot food. The casino was closed and, for a time, so were the bars. The swimming pool was offlimits because the pumps wouldn’t work. Mark and Ginger Kalin and their 9-year-old daughter Parker were on the cruise as part of a magicians’ convention. “The worst part was not knowing ... what was going to happen and how many days we were going to be like this,” Ginger Kalin said today on the CBS “Early Show.” “Considering the situation, everyone was pretty well behaved. I think we all made lemonade out of lemons. What are you going to do?” she said. For Edward Warschauer, of Reno, Nev., the worst part of the incident was the backed-up toilets. He said he had to bail out the family’s toilet in their cabin several times using a cup. “Let’s put it this way: For me, this was my worst nightmare, my phobia, to be on the sea in a ship and get stuck,” Warschauer said. Newlywed Stacy Noreiga told ABC’s “Good Morning America” the situation was particularly concerning for her because she’s pregnant. “It was very difficult, especially because the smells were unbelievable,” she said. “It seemed almost like every floor we went up there was a different odor.” Navy helicopters flew in Spam, Pop Tarts and canned crab meat and other goods. Karyn and Ed van Latum, both 61, flew from Holland to take the cruise and spend time with their son. They booked the cruise with their daughter-in-law’s parents after arriving from Alphen aan den Reijn, their hometown. They were on the first bus to arrive in Long Beach after leaving San Diego and were head to West Covina with their in-laws before returning to Holland on Tuesday. The van Latums had a first-floor interior cabin and when the fire began, the area filled with smoke and the lights went off, making their room pitch-black. They were afraid the situation was much worse. “We had to go to the upper deck and we took our life jackets and some people were in pajamas or bathrobes,” Ed van Latum said. “But the crew was very, very, very good.”

Experts fear possible copycat suicides after bullying cases
By GEOFF MULVIHILL The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — The experts call it “contagion” when a suicide or rash of suicides inspires others to follow in an attempt at martyrdom or solidarity in death. Most people would call them copycat suicides. Whatever the name, it appears to have been at play in at least one suicide since Rutgers University freshman Tyler Clementi’s highly publicized jump off the George Washington Bridge. And experts fear that other recent suicides might fit the mold or that more are ahead. That creates a conundrum for advocates who want to stop teenage bullying and their related suicides, as well as for the media outlets that cover them: how to spread the word without romanticizing the problem or unwittingly encouraging vulnerable teenagers to choose death. “They may see this as a somewhat glamorous ending — that the youth got lots of attention, lots of sympathy, lots of national concern that they never got in life,” said Anara Guard, a senior adviser at the Boston-based Suicide Prevention Resource Center. “The second possible factor is that vulnerable youth may feel like, ’If they couldn’t cut it, neither can I.”’ Someone who’s mentally ill may learn about a suicide and consider it a reasonable option, said Madelyn Gould, professor of psychiatry and public health at Columbia University in New York: “A vulnerable person might say, ’That stopped the pain,”’ she said. Experts say that while contagion is a real issue, it’s getting more difficult to identify. Ann Haas, director of prevention programs at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, said that before the Internet, it was relatively easy to track the phenomenon. When several happened within the circulation area of a newspaper, contagion was likely a factor. But when news knows no geographical boundaries, she said, it’s hard to tell whether the suicides are linked. And Clementi’s death reached farther than most suicide stories do. Authorities say the 18-yearold killed himself after learning that his Rutgers roommate and another student peeked via webcam as he had an intimate encounter with a man. His death followed a string of suicides by teens nationwide believed to have been bullied for their perceived sexual orientation and quickly became a cause celebre.
After the initial danger passed, they said, they struggled with the darkness in their cabin, even in the daytime. “Some people said it was like a coffin, it’s so dark,” Karyn van Latum said. “We left our front door open, so that we had some little light, but it looked like a coffin. We stayed on the deck.” Many passengers passed the time by staying on deck, looking up at the starry sky or out at the USS Ronald Reagan, the Navy aircraft carrier that was assisting in the delivery of supplies to the ship. Others chatted in their dark, stuffy cabins. Others simply went to bed early. Very early. “We slept all day, the first day,” Geoffrey Klinge, who was honeymooning with his new wife, Sabrina Klinge, said today on NBC’s “Today” show. Passengers on lower decks had to climb as many as nine flights of stairs to get to the cafeteria only to meet long lines that stretched on for hours. By the time those at the end got to the food, they were left with tomatoes and lettuce, Haslerud said. Some passengers carried food to those who used walkers and canes and couldn’t climb stairs to reach the food lines.
A pair of issues long known to gay rights advocates and suicide prevention experts soon became more widely known: Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth are more likely to attempt suicide than their straight counterparts. And bullied youths are more likely to try suicide than those who aren’t. “There was no way that Tyler Clementi’s death was not going to be covered,” said Columbia University’s Gould. “He jumped from the George Washington Bridge, and he mobilized the need for a lot of prevention efforts. It’s a good aftermath of a horribly tragic event.”

LOS ANGELES — Will Lynch is looking for justice in an unusual way. Charged with savagely beating the priest he says molested him as a child, he plans to try to use his trial to publicly shame the Rev. Jerold Lindner in court. Law experts say he faces an uphill battle. However, priest abuse victims are cheering Lynch on and offering to donate to his defense fund. “Somebody needs to be a face for this abuse and I’m prepared to put myself on the line,” Lynch told The Associated Press in the first interview since his arrest last month. “There’s nothing they can take from me that they haven’t already taken.” Lynch is accused of luring Lindner to the lobby of a retirement home in May and beating him bloody in front of horrified witnesses. Lynch, 43, plans to plead not guilty at his arraignment on an assault charge today. Lynch accuses the 65-yearold Jesuit priest of sexually abusing him and his younger brother in 1975 during weekend camping trips in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The boys, 7 and 4 at the time, were raped and forced to have oral sex with each other while Lindner watched, Lynch said. Lindner has repeatedly denied abusing anyone and has never been criminally charged. He hung up Wednesday when the AP called him for comment. In a deposition in the late 1990s, Lindner said he didn’t recall Lynch or his brother, though the siblings received $625,000 in a 1998 confidential settlement with the Jesuits for alleged abuse by the priest. Lynch says memories of the priest have tormented him for years, and he struggled through alcohol abuse, depression, nightmares and divorce. He tried to commit suicide twice and told the Los Angeles Times in 2002 that he often thought about confronting Lindner. Authorities say Lynch acted on that fantasy when he attacked the priest on May 10 after the cleric failed to recognize him at the Jesuits’ Sacred Heart retirement home in Los Gatos. Lindner has recovered from the attack.
