Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869
DELPHOS — The local Drug Abuse Resistance Education Program honored 138 Delphos fifthgraders Friday afternoon at the D.A.R.E. Graduation. Principals from both Delphos City and St. John’s Schools commented on the positive Wiechart influence the program has over their students. “The kids are just at an age when they’re aware and making choices. Hopefully they’ll make the choices that Jefferson High School choir student Tony Wiechart are right for their future,” has been selected to sing with Landeck Principal Mark Fuerst said. “I think D.A.R.E. the District 3 Honors Choir. helps to keep them aware.

COLUMBUS — There’s no quick fix for a major state lake where toxic algae led to warnings and a decline in tourism this summer, the new director of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency said Friday. EPA Director Scott Nally said improving Grand Lake St. Marys will not take “just one magic bullet” but a combination of them. His comments came at a news conference where he signed his first permit at the agency. Nally and the directors of the state natural resources and agriculture departments visited the state’s largest inland
The Delphos Area Art Guild will be host to guest speaker Dr. Ralph Stuckman at 7 p.m. on Tuesday in the 2nd Floor gallery of the Museum of Postal History in Delphos. Dr. Stuckman is a ceramic artist who retired from Wright State University in Celina as art professor. He will be facilitating a community project of making a large ceramic collage piece to commemorate the history and spirit of Delphos. This will be a collaborative project between art guild members who wish to participate and people in the community who are interested in leaving ‘their mark’ behind. The photo above is a similar piece Dr. Stuckman did entitled “OHIO.” Each of the pieces of ceramic have handprinted designs, such as map of Ohio, airplane, corn, etc., are about 3-4 inches square. About 80 pieces are included in this piece that has won awards throughout the state.

lake on Friday. They met with officials working at the lake to discuss eight or nine ways to tackle the toxic blue-green algae, he said. Grand Lake St. Marys, midway between Toledo and Dayton, is one of the state’s most polluted lakes because of run-off of manure and fertilizer from nearby farms. Phosphorous, found in manure and chemical fertilizers, helps foster the harmful blue-green algae. Nally said the possible solutions included extracting high-phosphorous, bottomfeeder fish from the lake and harvesting the surrounding wetlands. Another approach See ALGAE, page 2

For the last several weeks, I have been claiming the insanity defense on why we have a new puppy. After the devastating loss of our sweet girl, I could not face the empty house. There was no furry one to excitedly greet me at the door; no little tippy-tap of feet on the hard floors; no fuzzy TV buddy who doesn’t complain about what I like to watch. I know it was only two days but hey, we’re working on the insanity thing, remember? Then came little Ringo (The Dingo) Rock Star Spencer. Wow. I think I have forgotten more than I even knew about having a puppy. Our home was certainly not puppy-proof to say the least. Both my Christmas trees were still up and Ringo delighted in trying to snag a string of beads off the one in the entryway. He succeeded about two days in and scared himself silly when the little tree nearly followed him into the living room. Hah! Take that, little dude! My questions is, how in the world can something so small go to the bathroom so much? It had only been days since there was a fuzzy face on my leg to signal a trip outdoors was in my best interest. Coming from a pet store, our little guy had been trained to go in his cage, therefore, he felt right at home going on my floor — a lot! Argh! It only took a few days and a puppy anatomy lesson from our beloved vet (puppies bladders are very, very small) and we were setting a timer to mark each hour and the little devil spawn’s ... er, puppy’s trips outside. It took several more days for him to reconcile that he was going to go outside. He wasn’t too

fond of it and especially not after we got our four-or-so inches of snow. Parts of him are very low to the ground right now. Puppies are also very curious and explore their world with their mouths. I have been amazed at the things he can fit in there — if only for a second — like my feet while in house slippers. Ringo the Dingo also has a very different personality than our timid girl. He is afraid of nothing — at least at the onset. He quickly drops the illegal item and runs when his undesirable behavior is addressed, though. I would love to give you examples but in the interest of my happy marriage, I cannot reveal them here. I have a picture of little Ringo as the wallpaper on my computer. I often look at his little face and my heart just melts. There is often the same reaction in person. Then he bites me, my buttons, my ear, pees on something or grabs an aforementioned illegal item and the game is on. A friend told me soon after our new little guy came home they make puppies cute for a reason — it’s so you don’t kill them. I believe her. This, too, shall pass.
NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump is welcoming Gary Busey, Meat Loaf and La Toya Jackson among the rivals to be his latest “Celebrity Apprentice.” The contenders, who were announced by Trump on Friday, also include rock singer Mark McGrath, onetime teen idol David Cassidy and Richard Hatch, remembered as the fat, naked guy on the first season of “Survivor.” Hatch has had lengthy legal wrangling with the Internal Revenue Service over unpaid taxes and could still be facing jail time. Actress Marlee Matlin, singer Dionne Warwick and retired Major Leaguer Jose Canseco will also be among those competing. Rounding out the 16 players are: TV personality Star Jones, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes, soap actress Lisa Rinna, supermodel Niki Taylor, rapper Lil Jon, country singer John Rich and model Hope Dworaczyk. Each hopes to raise money for a favorite charity.

might be more treatments of aluminum sulfate, or alum, to the lake. A report last month showed that alum spread over test areas appeared to have no impact on phosphorous at one site in Grand Lake St. Marys. The phosphorous levels in the water were reduced by 50 to 60 percent at two other sites. Nally said officials will soon have to decide whether to cut through the ice at the lake in the hopes of getting another test treatment done before the spring. The 12,700-acre lake is used for boating, swimming and other recreation. It also supplies drinking water for more than 10,000 residents of nearby Celina. Its watershed covers more than 59,000
acres. At the news conference, Gov. John Kasich said his administration would soon have a plan for the polluted lake. “We’re on it, and we’ll move this along as quickly as we can,” he said. Asked whether farmers could face new rules, Kasich said his preference would be to try to work with the farmers to prevent run-off rather than instituting regulations. Also on Friday, Nally signed a permit allowing Mingo Junction Energy Center in eastern Ohio to capture and recycle waste gas that otherwise would be burned off. The permit had been stalled at the agency for about 20 months due to what Nally says were communication problems.

Trostel to address historical society after annual meeting
The 103rd annual Membership Meeting of the Allen County Historical Society will be held at 2 p.m. Jan. 30 in the Folsom Auditorium of the Allen County Museum. After a brief business meeting, Scott Trostel will give a presentation entitled, “Saving Streetcar #60.” One of the earliest forms of public transportation in Lima, Allen County was the Lima Street Railway. It was the second electrified streetcar system in the United States, thanks to Benjamin Faurot. It ceased operation in 1939 when it was replaced by bus transportation. In 1962, John H. Keller, and the Allen County Historical Society, located the remnants of Streetcar #60 in Findlay. The cab of the car was the only salvageable part. It was removed to storage in Allen County where it remained until 2009. At that time, the Historical Society contacted Trostel, a Fletcher author and railroad historian, to seek his input about potential restoration of Car #60 for the Allen County Museum’s Phase II expansion. Throughout the winter months of 2009, Trostel painstakingly restored the
Candlelight gathering held to highlight Kasich’s ‘attack’ on working families
CINCINNATI — Hundreds of workers and community members braved cold weather Friday evening outside Cincinnati City Hall to support home health care and child care providers who are bracing for a decision by Gov. John Kasich that would take away their rights to bargain for a better life. Gov. Kasich has stated his intent to attack working families and eliminate workers’ freedom to bargain for a better life, including vowing to take away home health care and child care providers’ freedom to bargain for a voice on the job and a means to improve the lives of their families and the clients they serve. Participants at the candlelight gathering included AFLCIO Executive Vice President Arlene Holt Baker, Cincinnati faith leaders, home health care, child care and unemployed workers.
The gathering also included hundreds of Cincinnati workers and community members who held candles and signs to demand Gov. Kasich stop his attacks on working families and instead focus his attention on saving and creating good, family-sustaining jobs for Ohioans. Just days before the Dr. Martin Luther King Day, the event invoked the legacy of Dr. King and his final days supporting striking Memphis sanitation workers. The candlelight gathering took place as workers from across the country converged on Cincinnati to commemorate Dr. King’s legacy at the AFL-CIO’s Martin Luther King Jr. Observance. The annual observance honors Dr. King’s struggle for social and economic justice through worship services, community service events, and discussions on issues facing working families.

ATHENS (AP) — A building at Ohio University was evacuated as a precaution after the discovery of a bottle of acid that was possibly explosive. The university’s associate vice president for risk management and safety, Joe Adams, says visible crystals were found Friday morning in the bottle of picric acid in the school’s Life Sciences Building. The acid can be sensitive to heat, shock or friction when crystallized. Adams says no one was hurt and the acid was not spilled. University spokeswoman Katie Quaranta says the acid was removed by an explosive ordnance disposal squad from Columbus.

DAYTON (AP) — Civil rights leader the Rev. Raleigh Trammell has turned himself in to face charges including grand theft involving a meal delivery program in southwest Ohio. The Dayton Daily News reports 73-year-old Trammell declined comment Friday as he was escorted by Montgomery County prosecutors. The former local president and national chairman of the Atlantabased Southern Christian Leadership Conference was indicted Wednesday on 51 charges — one count of grand theft and 25 counts each of forgery and tampering with government records.

Dear Annie: I smiled when I read the letter from “Losing It in Canada,” the parents of two small boys who do not have great table manners despite their parents’ best efforts. When my son was young, we went through the same thing. Then one day, he was invited to a girl’s house for dinner. I wanted him to make a nice impression, so I started reviewing table manners with him. He looked at me and said, “Mom, you have been telling me about manners for years. I know what to do. I just choose to ignore you most of the time.” He went to his friend’s house and displayed excellent manners because those years of teaching had obviously sunk in. Tell those parents not to give up. Their boys are learning. -- Mom in Connecticut Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

R.R. stops running its one steam engine
The Lima-Defiance railroad company has again ceased operating and several Lima patrons of the line are finding some difficulty in securing service as a result. This line has had difficulties for many years past. It was discontinued at one time and later revived. For sometime, it has been operating one steam engine. It failed some years ago as a traction line. The Lima State hospital has been dependent upon this road for delivery of supplies and is now seeking other switching service. Delphos Herald, July 1, 1927 ---------Suffers No Ill Results A near drowning was averted at the Auglaize River Sunday, while a party of Delphos youths were swimming in the river a short distance north of the Lincoln Highway bridge. Leroy Etgen started to pilot Eugene Lause, 12, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clem Lause, of this city, across the deep part of the stream. Etgen found his task beyond his powers and Lause sank. Edward Scherger, 15, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Scherger, South Pierce street, went to the rescue but was also dragged down. Basil Young, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Young, Clay and Cleveland streets, went to the aid of Scherger and the two succeeded in taking Lause to shore. Although he sank four times, Lause was not rendered unconscious and has since suffered no ill effects. He was badly frightened, however, as a result of his narrow escape from drowning. Delphos Herald, July 2, 1927 ---------Construction To Be Started Announcement has been made by Frank Best, local manager of the Lima Telephone and Telegraph Company of the starting of an addition to the completed central office building located at the corner of Third and Canal streets. Mr. Best explained that the addition will be constructed on the south side of the present building and will match the old building in design and architecture. According to the present plans, the entrance on Third street will be closed and a new entrance will be put on the Canal street side. A dial service will require the installation of new equipment in the subscribers premises and when completed it will afford the subscribers the very latest in modern telephone service. Mr. Best says that the contract for the addition to the building has been awarded to the Green and Sawyer construction company of Lima. The estimated cost of the addition is $30,000. Delphos Herald, Sept. 18, 1947 ---------Gramm Busses Praised The Gramm busses being used on the Yelloway lines are certainly making good, according to E.E. Cross, representative of the company, who came to Delphos with a Gramm bus which has been in use on the Yelloway for some months. The company brought the bus here for a complete inspection rather than take it to some garage. All that was found necessary to be done to the motor was a check of the bearings and installing new rings. Mr. Cross states that he has driven this bus more than 72,000 miles and is very enthusiastic concerning its performance. Speaking of the chassis, he said, “It is the most wonderful chassis ever put on the market.” He has driven many makes of busses and served as demonstrator for a bus factory. He says, however, that he likes

Window to the Past
the Gramm better than any other. He spoke highly of it with respect to operation, upkeep, economical running, etc. Delphos Herald, July 2, 1927 ---------Cedar Point Becomes Mecca for K. of C.’s Cedar Point was the mecca today for hundreds of Knights of Columbus members coming from all sections of Ohio for the grand ball of the order; the climax of the week’s outing. “The outing this year is only a beginning,” State Secretary Gorman declared. “We had little time to prepare and complete programs as this was the first outing since 1917, we naturally are working under handicaps. However, from the response we have had this year, we feel certain that next year’s outing will surpass any the Knights of Columbus have ever had.” Delphos Herald, July 1, 1927 ---------Nail in Homes of Prehistoric Man When you drive a nail into your wall to hang a picture, do you ever pause to think that you are using something with a history almost as old as humanity itself? A nail over two and a half pounds in weight, and thick in proportion, was found in ruins of Troy. And similar enormous nails have been recovered from the remains of lake dwellings and other places where prehistoric man made his home. All nails were originally made at home. Then, when the smith became a specialist craftsman, he made the nails of the community, until a special nailsmith started in business. In the fifteenth century there was a guild of nailsmiths in Augsburg. The first nail-making machine was invented in Britain at the end of the Eighteenth century, and a little later the first nail factories were at work in Birmingham. Delphos Herald, July 6, 1927 ---------Trade Fair, Centuries Old Leipzig, Germany — An army of more than 1,500 merchants from all parts of the United States invaded Germany this spring to attend the Leipzig Trade fair. To visit this world exposition is to look into the future for almost a year, and see the goods of every kind which will fill the shops, next Christmas. Germany is reputed to be the home of Santa Claus. Every variety of industrial product was displayed. World expositions come and go, but the Leipzig fair goes on, apparently, forever. It has been held every year without a break for several centuries now. In its early days traders journeyed to Leipzig by primitive caravans, protected from highwaymen by guards in medieval armor. Today, from 41 countries scattered throughout the world, about 200,000 visitors travel to Leipzig, among whom the buyers from the United States play an important part. Delphos Herald, July 8, 1927 ---------Robbed of $1500 Cash and Jewelry A robbery in which cash and jewelry to the value of approximately $1500 were taken, took place in Delphos at an early hour Friday morning. Shortly after midnight, three men appeared at the Charles Danner home, South Canal street, and stated they were federal prohibition offi-

cers who entered to make a search. As soon as they were in the house, they were found to be masked. They drew pistols and proceeded to search for valuables, first cutting the telephone wires to prevent an alarm. They took $85 in cash, diamond earrings and other jewelry. Two of the men are said to have been large and the other small. The police were called after they left but no clue to the identity could be obtained. Five men were seen after the robbery in a Dodge and are thought to have been the robbers. They could not be located. Delphos Herald, July 8, 1927 ---------Machine will Determine Animal’s Horsepower Is a horse’s power a horsepower? Ohio farmers interested in the answer to this question may find it at the county fair this fall. A machine known as a dynamometer has been purchased by the animal husbandry department at the Ohio State University to measure horses’ pulling power. Several county fairs are scheduled to use it for pulling contests. The dynamometer will first be used in Ohio in Clark County at the annual farmers picnic in Springfield. Sixteen states have made use of the dynamometer since its invention in 1923 at Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station. Already it has proved that a horse’s power may be more than a horsepower. The maximum so far developed, according to the Horse Association of America is 29 horsepower, developed by the team which now holds the world’s championship in pulling, “Cap” and “King” brothers, half Belgian and half Percheron, owned by Clarence Bugh, Cherokee, Iowa. These horses, weighing 3700 pounds, pulled 3475 pounds a distance of 27 1/2 feet, which was equivalent to starting 15 or 20 times, a load of 45,120 pounds on granite block pavement. Delphos Herald, July 9, 1927 ---------It was a Glorious Victory And so thought the Delphos portion of the large assemblage of fans who attended the game between Delphos and Van Wert, Ohio-Indiana league teams, in which the two aggregations staged a fierce battle for leadership of the league. The final score was 3 to 1, Delphos leading. Miller was pitching for Delphos and held his own nicely. Davis, on the mound for Van Wert, was equally effective. Each pitcher allowed six hits. Errors in judgement prevented the Delphos team from scoring on at least two occasions and things began to look bad for them when they went scoreless into the eighth inning, while the visitors had one run to their credit. The eighth however, proved the Delphos inning, two hits, coupled with two errors, giving them three runs. Delphos Herald, July 11, 1927 ---------Mules Kick Automobile to Pieces Yonkers, N.Y. — Two mules belonging to Joseph Stern, were hit by an automobile and though they escaped injury they became incensed and started to kick. Before the car could be pulled out of range, they had kicked the hood off, smashed both headlights, battered a tire to pieces and knocked one side out of the tonneau. Delphos Herald, March 6, 1911 ---------Throws Child Into Snow Port Huran, Mich. — When a horse driven by
James Slingerland started to run away, Mrs. Slingerland, with great presence of mind, threw her infant boy into a snow bank, probably saving his life. The vehicle was upset, the cutter box smashed and other damage done, but the couple were unhurt. Delphos Herald, March 6, 1911 ---------Announcing Marriage of Daughter Mr. and Mrs. H.M. Cochran of east of Delphos received a telegram Friday telling of the marriage of their daughter, Miss Charlotte Cochran to Gen. Pisano. Particulars concerning the ceremony were not learned here. Miss Cochran is an accomplished singer and is well-known in Delphos and vicinity. She has been playing for several years in Gen. Pisano’s act in the Keith & Alby Circuit. Mr. Pisano is an accomplished marksman. She has a large circle of friends in this city to wish her happiness.

Clime; West Side Grocery, Schmit, Patton & Alexander, 201 N. Canal. Delphos Herald, July 1, 1927 ---------City Well Provided With Tourist Camps Tourists are coming to know Delphos as a place which is well provided with tourist camps, a place worth visiting when on a motor tour. Waterworks park is an ideal camping place for tourists. The park is beautiful with its fine large trees. It is provided with the best of water, an item which every camper values highly. The pool, playground equipment and many other features, commend it to people who are seeking a place to stop for one night or for a rest of several days. Supplies may be purchased at or in the immediate vicinity of the park, or a very short run will take the motorist to the heart of the business district. In addition to Waterworks park, there is Peltier park on the Harding highway, on the east bank of the Auglaize. It is a natural park site and has been made into an excellent tourist camp. Its location along the river makes it a favorite place to stop overnight. Delphos Herald, July 13, 1927 ---------Old School Bell Will Ring Again The old school bell which for many years past has called reluctant youth to its studies will continue on the job and be in readiness to take up its usual duties again next fall. A timely inspection found that the elements had weakened the supports and that the bell was in danger of being dropped to the roof of the Jefferson school. New timbers have been added, however, and its call will sound again in September, bringing fond memories to many of the older members of the Delphos community even though its tones may not receive unqualified welcome from the kiddies.

Now this article is supposed to be about Postal History and at the celebration, postal history will take place right before your very eyes. There will be a special pictorial cancellation at the Mt. Airy Post Office to commemorate this event. If you remember we’ve talked about numerous pictorial cancellations we’ve done right here in Delphos. The first was the 60th Anniversary Celebration of the Delphos Post Office. This was made from a hand drawing done by an artist here in Delphos. Since then, we have had the pictorial cancellations of the 100th anniversary of the VFW, the sesquicentennial of St. John’s Church and the opening of the Museum of Postal History, to name a few. I know it has been a long time coming but we will be opening the museum on a regular basis every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting Feb. 5. Come see the progress we have made both with the building and in creating new exhibits. Remember, these trips help to fund this wonderful museum. Y’all be good now and get with the program – sign up today. For more information, call me at 419-303-5482 or Ruth Ann Wittler at 419-692-4536. If you like, you can register at the Museum on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (we do close for lunch usually around noon).

Second half lifts Blue Jays in MAC play
By AUSTIN CLARKSON The Delphos Herald austinclarkson_24@ hotmail.com DELPHOS — The St. John’s Blue Jay boys basketball team came out the second half Friday night looking like a completely different ball club than in the first half of play at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium. The home team — trailing 24-22 — wanted the victory a bit more than the Redskins of St. Henry and their aggressive and tough defense propelled them above the ’Skins in the second half, outscoring their Midwest Athletic Conference opponent 24-16 in the last 16 minutes of the contest to squeak by the guests by a score of 46-40 to stay undefeated in league play (3-0). The Blue Jays jumped out to a 15-7 lead after the first quarter of action by gaining the momentum and playing very hard for head coach Aaron Elwer and the Blue Jay crowd as they were a very big part of this MAC showdown. The Jays were led on the night by sophomore standout Curtis Geise, who netted 23 points on the night, including a very big second half as he led his team to a victory. The second quarter was a problem for the Jays as they came out a little slow and it cost them the lead going into the locker rooms. The ’Skins outscored the Jays 17-7 in the second quarter and gained a little bit of the momentum away from the home team to take a 2-point lead into intermission and were looking like they might have figured things out. Elwer thought that his team played with a lot of passion in the second half to propel them over the ’Skins: “We talked at halftime about what team wanted it more and we executed in the second half and really came out ready to play. Curtis has been solid for us all year and the kids have seen that and try to get the ball to him as much as possible to hit some big shots for us; tonight was no exception.” The second half was a totally different Blue Jay club as they came out ready to go and really showed their toughness in the final 16 minutes of the contest. The Jays may not have all the offensive firepower as they’ve had in the past couple seasons but the thing that separates this team is how well they play defense, their intensity and the thrill to win and compete in every game. The Jays regained their lead in the third quarter and looked like they were starting to get on a roll as they headed into the final quarter of play in front 33-31. Seniors Alex Recker and Derek Klaus did a nice job for the Jays in the fourth quarter in the post as they played very physically on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball. Geise handled the ball very well down the stretch; the Jays weren’t perfect from the foul line (13-of-22) but they were good enough to get the job done. They outscored the Redskins 13-9 in the final quarter to stay perfect in MAC play this year as all three of their victories have come from league play. With the win, the Blue Jays move to 3-5 on the year and will be back in action tonight when they play host to the Shawnee Indians with a junior varsity start time of 6 p.m. at “The Vatican.” The Jays’ JV team also got a victory Friday night as they defeated the Skins 54-45 to improve to 8-0 (3-0 MAC).

Kalida romps past Musketeers
By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald email@example.com FORT JENNINGS — It’s not every day that two legendary coaches meet up in high school basketball but that was the case on Friday night at The Fort when the Kalida Wildcats and longtime mentor Dick Kortokrax met up with head coach John Von Sossan and the Fort Jennings Musketeers in boys basketball action, Putnam County League style. The hosts managed to get the first basket of the contest but that is all that would go right for the winless Musketeers as Kalida rattled off 11 points in a row and cruised to a 59-25 victory. Kristopher Osterhage led all scorers with 15 markers, draining four 3-pointers, Ben Schroeder added 14 for the ’Cats. Fort Jennings was led by Jeremy Kohli with nine points. Kalida shot 25-of48 from the field (6-of-10 3-balls) for 52.1 percent, with the Musketeers putting in just 11-of37 (0-of-7 triples) for 29 percent. The hosts (0-10, 0-2 PCL) did a good job holding onto the ball in the first half with just five turnovers but the second half brought a different game; the Wildcats caused 13 miscues in the second half, while giving up the rock just 11 times in the game. After the first bucket of the game was put in by the hosts, Osterhage seemed to take exception; the senior promptly delivered on three consecutive buckets from beyond the arc and in the bat of an eye, the Wildcats were up 11-2. While Osterhage was working the outside, Schroeder took care of things under the basket, breaking through for 10 of his 14 points in the second stanza, all from in the low post. The Wildcats sank 9-of-12

attempts in the second eight minutes of play, while Jennings improved to 4-of-13 from their 2-of-10 first-quarter performance. The guests still took a commanding 30-12 lead into the break with Osterhage leading the momentum with another long ball, this one from the far left corner. With each period, it seemed someone else would step up and take the lead for the Wildcats; in the third canto, it would be Jeremy Kahle’s turn in the leading role. He connected for all nine of his points in the third eight minutes, including a baseline drive off the glass that put Kalida up by a count of 45-16 with just under two minutes to go. In the final period, Schroeder got free again under the hoop and made a spectacular spin move to the bucket and found the bottom of the net, putting the ’Cats up by a count of 50-19. The win moves the Wildcats to a mark of 6-2 (2-0 PCL). Jennings shot 3-of-6 from the free-throw line (50%) to 3-of-5 for Kalida (60%) but was pounded on the glass 29-12 as Osterhage had six for the Wildcats and Nolan Neidert four for the hosts. Jennings visits Bluffton tonight, while Kalida visits Tinora. The junior varsity contest went to Kalida, 55-22.

Spencerville edges Columbus Grove in 2-overtime cage thriller
By DREW BITNER Times Bulletin SPENCERVILLE – There are some wins that can define a month and others that can define a season. And then sometimes, there are victories that can define the rise and staying power of a program – a win that can catapult a team to new heights and keep it there. Spencerville might have just captured that victory. Led by Derek Goecke’s 21 points and a game-winning layup by Dan Binkley, the Bearcats overcame a 13-point first-half deficit on their home court Friday night and outlasted a previouslyunbeaten Columbus Grove squad in a double overtime Northwest Conference victory, 64-63. “That’s as big as it gets,” said Spencerville head coach Kevin Sensabaugh, who claimed this was the best he had ever felt as a head coach. “That’s the bottom line. That’s as big as it gets. It wasn’t much about X’s and O’s. It was our effort, our energy and our enthusiasm. We played how we are supposed to play. We played hard.” Despite their clear edge in energy and heart, things didn’t look good for Spencerville early. In fact, the first half had all the makings of a Grove blowout. Led by 10 first-quarter points by Luke Kohls and another six by Jordan Travis, the Bulldogs jumped out to a 20-11 lead after the opening stanza. Midway through the second quarter, Grove had extended that lead to 14 points and seemingly had the game well in hand. Spencerville found some life late in the first half behind seven straight points by Goecke and pulled within five points at 29-25 but two late free throws by the Bulldogs put the lead back to seven points by halftime, 31-24, and the game still seemed to be a Grove win in the making. Once the teams returned from halftime, however, the end began for Grove. The third quarter was literally all Spencerville, with the Bearcat defense holding Grove without a single field goal in the quarter and only a lone free throw to show for their trouble. The Bearcat defensive work was particularly impressive in regards to holding Kohls without a point after the reigning NWC Player of the Year scored 18 points in the first half. “I’m not sure if we played them again that would happen,” said Sensabaugh candidly. “They hit a cold spell and I think the zone gave them some fits. They were getting some open looks but they weren’t hitting them. I think we were fortunate in that respect but I think our guys played with the energy and enthusiasm that was needed on defense and it kind of threw them.” That third quarter effort saw Spencerville take their first lead of the game with 4:47 remaining (33-31) and the hosts would hold a 37-32 advantage after three quarters of play. The Bulldogs wouldn’t go away, however, and after a seesaw fourth quarter, both teams were even with 50 points on the scoreboard and were headed into overtime. And even would be how they would stay after a first overtime period, with matching 2-point buckets by Jordan Travis and Goecke in the final 40 seconds putting the squads at 56 points apiece and forcing a second overtime. In the second OT, Eli Bowers got the home team off on the right foot with an immediate trey and a 59-56 lead. Shortly afterward, Trevor Hardeman added two free throws and it was a 61-56 advantage for the Bearcats. But Kohls scored five straight points for Grove

Clifton’s 35 leads Cougars past Wildcats in WBL
By Kirk Dougal Times Bulletin Editor firstname.lastname@example.org VAN WERT - Van Wert had to weather Bath’s firsthalf storm - 65-percent field goal shooting on 15-of23 attempts - while Corey Clifton threw his own tempest at the visitors in the second half when he scored 21 of his 35 points to lead the Cougars to a tough 66-59 Western Buckeye League win over the Wildcats. T he win keeps fourthranked (Div. II) Van Wert unbeaten at 9-0 overall and all alone atop the WBL at 3-0. Bath falls to 6-4, 2-1. Afterwards, both coaches acknowledged which player put the game on his shoulders. “I liked the way we competed the entire game,” said Bath coach Doug Davis. “I thought the kids played hard and followed the game plan and played really well. I told them afterwards that basically we lost to a real good player.” “Corey is a player who can make a difference,” said Van Wert coach Dave Froelich. “Tonight, he really did.” That state ranking appeared like it was in trouble in the first half as the Wildcats came out of the gate spreading the floor and using dribble-drive penetration for close shots. Point guard Johny Simindinger was the recipient of many of those easy buckets, scoring eight points in the first quarter and 15 by the half. Van Wert continued to battle, scoring when they had the opportunity and keeping Bath’s Brad Davis under control. When the Cougars’ Jacob Myers canned a 3-pointer at the 2:07 mark, the game was tied again at 14-14. Bath put on a quick surge to end the quarter, picking up two free throws from Simindinger and two moves on the block from Keaton Sullivan on a 6-2

Lancers’ 2nd quarter dooms Jeffcats
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ delphosherald.com RURAL MIDDLE POINT — Jefferson’s boys basketball team started out OK versus Lincolnview Friday night. The second quarter did the Wildcats in, getting outscored 15-4 by the host Lancers in the period and never quite overcoming that in falling 53-49 in Northwest Conference action at the Lancerdome. The Wildcats (4-5, 1-2 NWC) lost despite the triple-double of senior Ryan Ebbeskotte: 11 markers, 11 boards, 10 assists, with 3 steals thrown in. “He’s capable of that and even more every night. He’s had to make the adjustment from being a playmaking point guard to being a major scorer for us; we constantly have the discussion — since summer — to tell him to shoot more,” Jefferson coach Marc Smith noted. “He’s a 48-percent 3-point shooter. Still, overall, we only played with a sense of urgency for 20 minutes. They didn’t do anything we didn’t expect; we just did not play with the level of urgency we needed. We’re not talented or good enough, nor am I a good enough coach, for us to play like that.” The visitors led 15-14 to start the second period but struggled against the Lancer 1-3-1 zone. They shot 1-of-9 from the floor in the canto (19-of-45 for the night, 4-of15 downtown, for 42.4%). On the other end, junior sharpshooter Sloan Whitaker got cooking for the hosts (3-7, 1-2 NWC), pouring in 11 of his game-high 21, including a pair of 3s. He scored nine markers in a closing 11-0 spurt — started by his triple at 2:20 and culminated by his bomb from the right wing that beat the horn — that put the Lancers up 29-19. The Lancers canned 6-of16 shots against the Wildcats 1-2-2 zone (19-of-40 for the game, 5-of-12 long range, for 47.5%). “We grew up a little bit tonight. I am so proud — I can’t say that enough — about these kids,” Lincolnview coach Rob Welch began. “We’re young but we’re halfway through the season, too. These kids are starting to understand where they’re supposed to be and when, who our scorers are and what roles they need to play. Sloan just made some tough shots tonight and the light has gone on for Jack (Frank) the last four games. He was on varsity last year and dropped him down to JV but he never gave up.” Delphos started the third period with an 8-0 salvo — five from senior Logan Bonifas (12 counters, 8 caroms for the game) to get

within 29-26 at the 4:40 mark. By the 2:59 mark, they were within 31-29 on a baseline jumper from junior Nick Dunlap (14 points). However, the Lancers — using only six players — pieced together a 9-2 closing spurt, once more finished off by a Whitaker deep trifecta from the right wing that beat the horn, to push the margin to 40-33. The Wildcats switched from their zone into a manto-man and began to extend it to 3/4-quarter court and eventually full. Frank (12 points, 5 boards, 3 blocks) scored a 3-point play for the home team to get them a 10-point edge on the first possession of the finale. With Ebbeskotte (6 markers) and Dunlap (5) leading the way, the Wildcats tried to rally and did get within 48-44 at the 1:18 mark on an Ebbeskotte jumper. However, thanks to 3-of-4 free throws by freshman Kyle Williams and a layin off a steal — an exchange of turnovers — by Zach Kreischer, the Wildcats could get no closer despite a 3-ball from senior Mitchell Antalis and a deuce from Ebbeskotte. Lincolnview hit 7-of-10 singles in the period (10-of14 overall for 71.4% versus 7-of-12 for the visitors for 58.3%). Delphos got off quickly — a 6-0 lead, forcing Welch to call time at 5:13. Back came the Blue and Gold to tie it twice — 6-6 and 9-9. The Wildcats held their largest lead — 15-11 — on a 3-point play by Bonifas with 4.3 ticks left but Kreischer fired
in a 3-pointer from the right wing to beat the horn and get his team within 15-14. “I have the utmost respect for Mr. Whitaker and I do mean Mr. To go from being a spot-shooter to a first-team NWC performer is a testament to his commitment,” Smith added. “I don’t like losing to him but I have the greatest respect for him. I want our young players to take a good look at him and the hard work he put in — and the commitment he made — to becoming a great player. Some of the shots he hit were unguardable. He was the best player out there and he made plays. Give credit to Lincolnview altogether; they made plays.” The Red and White outrebounded the Lancers 29-21 (12-6 offensive) and the team tied with 13 turnovers each. The Wildcats had 15 fouls to 11 for the home team. Clayton Longstreth led the hosts with nine boards. “We’ve come to rely a lot on the 1-3-1. The kids understand what they’re doing in it and they’re getting good at it,” Welch added. “We didn’t trap as we usually do to begin with but in the second period, we trapped and got some big steals. When they tried to rally, we came up with the big bucket to get it back to 6 or 7. We hit some free throws when we had to have them. We actually could have 2 or 3 more wins.” In junior varsity action, Jefferson went to 4-5 (2-1 NWC) as they outlasted Lincolnview (1-10) 50-44.
Sophomore Zach Ricker netted a season-high 22 markers for the victors. Sophomore Nick Leeth downed 18 and freshman Eli Farmer (3 treys) added 15 for the hosts.

fourth. Davis began to take over on the Wildcat side, scoring seven points despite four fouls. Hurless stayed all over Simindinger, holding him down until he picked up his fourth foul with a little more than two minutes to go. The Bath guard would score nine points after that but it was not enough as Clifton took over for the Cougars.

took the score to 53-45. A couple of missed Van Wert shots and a turnover allowed Bath to crawl back to 53-50 but Myers came up big, nailing a 3-pointer of his own at the 1:47 mark for a 56-50 Cougar lead. From there, it was a constant march to the free-throw line as the Cougars made 12-of15 from the charity stripe in the quarter, including 10-of-10 by Clifton. A long 3-pointer from Simindinger beyond the top of the key brought the score a little closer as time wound out. “Bath played very well,” said Froelich. “They hurt us off penetration; they were quicker and better with the ball. We know we are going to get people’s best shot and that’s the way it should be in a league game. But I thought the kids responded. At halftime we got a little bit tougher, we got some loose
balls, we rebounded a little bit better - and we contained (Simindinger) better in the third quarter. It was a good game.” Bath was led by Simindinger’s 24 points while Davis added 14. The Wildcats cooled off a little from the field, making 24-of-42 on the night for 57 percent, including 3-of-8 (37.5%) from beyond the arc. One downfall in the game was free-throw shooting as the team was only 8-of-19 for 42 percent. Van Wert’s Clifton led all scorers with 35 while Myers poured in 17. The Cougars were 23-of-50 from the field for an even 46 percent with 4-of-12 (33.3%) of those from 3-point land. Van Wert was an outstanding 16-of-20 from the charity stripe for 80-percent shooting. A big second half lifted Van Wert to the top on the

or even an intense dislike! They split the regular season, both winning on the other’s home field. It took a — depends on your outlook — a supreme play by Long-Haired Troy or a stupid one by Joe Flacco for the Steelers to win in Baltimore. You have two of the oldest — if not the oldest — defenses in the NFL but both appear to be healthy. Neither offense is going to score a lot of points. The difference seems to be that Ed Reed is finally back to his old self at safety for the Ravens. He gives them a playmaker that can counter Polamalu. This will be a knock-down, drag-out, last-manstanding matchup. Give a slight — very slight — nod to Ravens. GREEN BAY: Aaron Rodgers has shook off the effects of his concussion. If Sparks can give the Packers even a close resemblance of the running game they had last week against Iggles — a pretty good run defense — that gives them what Matt Ryan has had in his tenure in Hotlanta: the deadly play-action pass. However, the Packers defense has finally put it all together and I am not sure Falcons have enough weapons outside — though Tony Gonzales and “Rowdy” Roddy White are a darn good pair — to get much going. Saints also exploited Falcons three weeks ago in Georgia Dome and Packers will do the same. Pack gets huge win. CHICAGO: When Seahawks beat Da Bears in Solider Field a long time ago, Chicago took them lightly. They sure as hecklydarn
won’t this time around, especially after upsetting defending SB champs. While Da Bears defense isn’t what it was in the mid-80s when they won the Super Bowl, it’s good enough to shut down ’Hawks. Bears offense seems to be coming along well enough to win by a comfortable margin. N E W ENGLAND: As I wrote in my Metcalfe’s — Boninsegna Musings remember those? — methinks Rex Ryan and Antonio Cromartie will regret shooting their mouths off about Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. I don’t think you’ll see a repeat of 45-3 slobberknocker in Week 13 but don’t be surprised if Patriots turned this one into another laugher, especially if Ben JarvisGreen-Ellis gives them ANY running game. ---DAVE BONINSEGNA Baltimore at Pittsburgh: Both are 1-1 with each other on the season; the rubber game for the right to go to the AFC Championship. As much as i will be rooting for the Ravens, I think the Steelers find a way to win at home. Jets at NE: The Pats destroyed the Jets in their last meeting; they may not give them the beating they did last time but they move on to play again. Patriots win. Seahawks at Chicago: To quote Garth Brooks, “It’s Midnight Cinderella”, or in this case, Seattle. Packers at Atlanta: Gotta go with the home team on this one; this is the one game of the four where it won’t matter to me who wins. ----AUSTIN CLARKSON Steelers Over Ravens. Steelers are always tough at home in the playoffs and I think that Big Ben will come up big and Wallace will have a big game receiving. Patriots over Jets. Patriots are fired up about the comments of some of the Jets players and their coach Rex Ryan so I think that Tom Brady will come out firing and lead his team to a victory at home. Packers over Falcons. Packers have been playing very well as of late and Aaron Rodgers is ready to come up big in the playoffs and lead his Green Bay team deep into the playoffs and their defense is also very tough to beat with Clay Matthews leading that fierce defense on the road in Atlanta. Seahawks over Bears. Seahawks are coming off of a very big and impressive victory over the reigning Super Bowl champs and are starting to gain confidence as they start to build up momentum to make a Super Bowl run as Matt Hasselback leads the Seahawks into Chicago to try and give Pete Carroll his first Super Bowl ring coaching in the NFL.

DEAR SARA: What do you do if you don’t have your oven? For the past two weeks, I have not had an oven, and my mind has ventured onto other options. The computer board of my oven went out, but the stove is still operable. Fortunately, and hopefully, it is getting fixed today (praying here). Over the past couple of years, I have been studying about adobe ovens and other bread ovens. I am hoping to build one someday, especially as we make a transition onto some long-hoped-for land/property. But I have wondered what the options are if we actually lost our oven and couldn’t bake. -- C.K., e-mail DEAR C.K.: I lived without an oven for a while when I was first
How to survive without an oven
DEAR DR. GOTT: For DR. PETER J. GOTT many years, I suffered with horrible breath, despite having had only one cavity in 40plus years and brushing/ flossing/tongue scraping/gargling constantly. I read every article I could find on bad breath but not one ever mentioned cryptic tonsils. I finally ended up with a doctor who figured out what those occasional smelly lumps were and had my tonsils removed. End of problem. Please inform your readers who might be wearing out the enamel on their teeth, like me, trying to get rid of their bad breath that there may be another reason for it. DEAR READER: Thank you for mentioning involvement of the tonsils, whose role is to filter out germs and bacteria that enter the body through the mouth and nose. Healthy tonsils are areas of pinkish tissue located in the back of the throat. When infected, they turn yellow or white. When the folds in the tonsils trap food and dead bacteria, stones can form. If this occurs often, chronic cryptic tonsils may result. This can cause bad breath because of the debris collected. There is also a possibility of a sore throat. The important thing to remember, as your doctor may have pointed out, is that bad breath (halitosis) cannot be remedied through traditional oral-cleaning processes. Some mild cases may not require any treatment at all. Others may respond to antibiotics or occasional removal of the stones and debris along with saltwater gargles. Severe cases, such as the one you had, might even require tonsillectomy. This is because once the tonsils are removed, there is no place for debris to collect. People with the condition should follow the advice of an ear-nose-and-throat specialist to determine which course of action is appropriate. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “An Informed Approach to Surgery.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order made payable to Newsletter and mailed to Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off my website at www. AskDrGottMD.com.

You can make a solar oven (solarcooking.org/plans), use a dutch oven over fire, bake bread in a crockpot (www.food.com/recipe/ couldnt-be-easier-slow-cookerbread-112579) or use a Coleman oven as alternatives to more expensive clay and bread ovens, too.

The Herald –9
By Bernice Bede Osol
Sunday, Jan. 16, 2011 Both an exciting and busy cycle is likely to emerge in the coming year, due to the worthy lessons you’ve learned about the value of creative expression. A rewarding market could emerge when the public gets a load of your wares. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Certain conscientious efforts that you recently exerted could begin to pay off and bear fruit. If you’ve laid a strong foundation, your successes will be quite impressive. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Wit, warmth and charm are some of your most enviable assets and the reasons why others are implored to seek out your company. Good things will happen because of what you are. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - Help out someone you love by showing this person how to make the most of his/her resources. Because you’ve been through a lot yourself, you’re the best one to help. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - If you’re doing anything of an important nature, be sure to align yourself with experienced people who can help your cause, not hinder it, even if it’s merely a sports challenge. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - Even if this isn’t a workday for you, some kind of opportunity to accumulate funds is highly possible. It might come from being able to open a door that few have been able to access. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) This is a good day to get together with a pal who hasn’t been as cooperative with what you’ve been doing lately as s/he used to be. Find out what the reason might be, in case you can change it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) There is an excellent chance that you will be receiving some assistance with a matter in which you have been feeling alone and rejected. This help will turn everything right ‘round for you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Should one arise, don’t ignore an opportunity to help lift a heavy responsibility off of a friend’s shoulder. It’ll do much for you in sowing fresh seeds for true camaraderie. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - The sudden realization that it’s possible to achieve several important objectives will light a fire under your haunches. Once you believe you can reach your goals, they’ll seem much easier. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Being born with good leadership qualities won’t do a thing for you unless you take the reins when a need arises. If or when you feel tied down by outside forces, let your assertiveness emerge. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Certain explicit insights with which you’re endowed should enable you to succeed in handling a development that has others baffled. Don’t hesitate to step up, stomp the yard and take care of business. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - It’s time to sort out and put to use some lessons you’ve recently learned that you’ve been anxious to try. By restructuring your ideas, you’ll find several new means to gratify your efforts. Monday, Jan. 17, 2011 Although material gratification might come much easier for you in the next year, guard against taking anything for granted and complacency. You could lose out just as quickly as you lucked out, and end up right back where you started. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - There are only so many hours in a day, and if you hope to take care of several critical tasks, it is important that you don’t waste any of them on frivolous activities. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - When involved in an amicable competitive game with friends, keep wagering out of the picture. Money could suddenly become a huge issue and alter the complexion of the game. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - Welcome all friendly suggestions made by others concerning a problem that you’re having, but don’t limit yourself to the available answers. Keep probing until you’re sure. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might be able to be somewhat laid back about frivolous matters, but not so when it comes to your business dealings. Be careful that you don’t treat serious matters indifferently. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Allowing another to make a decision for you about a matter that you regard as unimportant is likely to end up resulting in some unexpected expenditure on your part. Call your own shots. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Make sure that you don’t underestimate your competition. What you think is your ace in the hole might be something they can easily trump. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Avoid having anything important to do with a person or organization that you know for a fact has a hard time keeping a promise. Nothing is likely to have changed. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Mindlessly spending a little too much here and there will quickly get you into hot water. Be mindful of your purchases, or you could brutally batter your wallet. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Unless you are cognizant of your every move, a goal of major significance could easily wriggle away. Should you slip back a step or two, be prepared to put on the brakes and get back on course. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) When in conversations with persons of importance, limit your palaver to topics that you’re thoroughly familiar with. If that’s impossible, don’t pretend to possess knowledge that you don’t have. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - A failure to see and acknowledge your financial expectations could prove to be an extremely costly mistake. Don’t pin your hopes on unrealistic, rose-colored projections. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) - Avoid associating with individuals who don’t operate on your wavelength, either businesswise or socially. Being around them could invite discomfort.

1 in 5 say no progress toward King’s dream
By ERRIN HAINES The Associated Press ATLANTA — Having a black president hasn’t exactly led Americans to believe their country has moved closer to the ideal of racial equality preached by Martin Luther King Jr., according to a new poll. The AP-GfK poll found 77 percent of people interviewed say there has been significant progress toward King’s dream, about the same percentage as felt that way in 2006, before Obama was elected. Just more than one in five, 22 percent, say they feel there has been “no significant progress” toward that dream. On Monday, the nation will mark the 25th anniversary of the federal observance of King’s birthday. The civil rights icon would have been 82. On the heels of the postracial sentiment that swept Obama into office in 2008, critics have emerged questioning the president’s U.S. citizenship, mocking his Kenyan heritage, and criticizing his stance on health care reform as socialist and costly. Some say Obama’s efforts to unify Americans ring hollow in a nation that is palpably more partisan and divided since he became president two years ago. “The exuberance and thrill of seeing an African American elected to the presidency has been tempered by the outrageous claims that we’ve heard about him,” said William Jelani Cobb, a history professor at Rutgers University. Real concerns that King fought for remain, even with a black president, he said. “And the violent rhetoric we’ve seen directed towards (Obama) diminishes the initial sentiment that we’ve made great progress because of the election,” he said. The poll also reveals that more people plan to celebrate the federal holiday honoring King — 30 percent, compared to 23 percent who had such plans five years ago. That includes 46 percent of non-whites, 38 percent of college graduates, 36 percent who live in urban areas and 36 percent who attend religious services at least weekly, according to the poll. Margaret Bertels, 58, a legal assistant from Berkeley, Calif., and a Democrat, said Obama’s election was important symbolically. But in practical terms, she said, it has been difficult for the president himself to move the nation closer to King’s dream. “On the ground it has been a very hard situation for him to address,” Bertels said. Hugh Simpson, 57, of rural Butte Falls, Ore., who is white, said he will celebrate by flying his American flag and talking to his friends about King. He said he believes the country has clearly made progress since King’s days, having elected a black president. But he’s not an Obama fan — he favors the tea party movement. In terms of racial equality, “I don’t think we’ve had any great change in, like, two years,” Simpson said. Some communities in the South, including around Atlanta, where schools have been closed because of a snow and ice storm, have decided to make up one of the days on MLK Day, upsetting some African-American groups. In 1994, Congress added community service as a focus of the federal holiday, and more than one million Americans are expected to participate in 13,000 projects around the country on the King Day of Service, said Patrick Corvington, head of the Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency charged with administering service projects on the King holiday. “The focus on service has allowed for a different kind of conversation about Dr. King and what he was

D.A.R.E. Give me back my sign! Horoscope readers atwitter
By JOCELYN NOVECK and CHRIS WILLIAMS The Associated Press Sofia Whitcombe began her day with the startling realization that she might not be exactly who she thought she was. “My whole life, I thought I was a Capricorn,” the 25-yearold publicist said. “Now I’m a Sagittarius? I don’t feel like a Sagittarius!” It felt, she said, like a rug had been pulled from under her feet. “Will my personality change?” she mused. “Capricorns are diligent and regimented, and super-hardworking like me. Sagittarians are more laid back. This is all a little off-putting.” Countless people reacted on social networks Friday to the “news” that the stars have shifted alignment, astrologically speaking. No matter that the astronomy instructor who started it all in a weekend newspaper interview said it was an old story — very old; 2,000 years old, actually — and that astrologists were insisting it wouldn’t change a thing. The story had traveled around the blogosphere like, well, a shooting star. Some people seemed angry. “I believe it’s a zodiac scam,” said Jose Arce, a 38-year-old from Fort Lee, N.J., who runs a body shop. “I’ve known myself to be a Sagittarius, I believe, since I was born. So to come up now with some new sign? It’s unacceptable!” But others weren’t so ready to curse the stars. Kathy Torpey always felt like she was “a Scorpio trapped in a Sagittarian body” — emotional and creative, she said, more than competitive and intellectual like Sagittarians.

about,” Corvington said. “It allows all people to connect with Dr. King in different ways.” The new poll also shows most of the nation in support of the King holiday. Threequarters of those surveyed this year say King’s birthday should be so honored, with 84 percent of non-white respondents believing so, compared to 68 percent of white respondents. Younger adults are also more apt to feel the birthday deserves the honor, as 81 percent among those under 50 years old supported the holiday, compared to 66 percent among those 50 to 64 and 62 percent among seniors. King is the only American who was not a U.S. president honored with a federal holiday.

“My whole life, I thought I was a Capricorn. Now I’m a Sagittarius? I don’t feel like a Sagittarius! Will my personality change? Capricorns are diligent and regimented, and super-hardworking like me. Sagittarians are more laid back. This is all a little off-putting.”
— Sofia Whitcombe, 25-year-old publicist “You have no idea what relief and joy I felt after hearing the wonderful news of the zodiac changes,” wrote the 43-year-old mother of two from Willow Grove, Pa., in an e-mail, tongue-in-cheek to be sure. “Up until now, I felt like my whole life has been a lie!” Astrologers across the country reported a wave of calls, e-mails or web site hits from concerned clients. Astounded by all the kerfuffle was the man who started it, astronomy instructor Parke Kunkle. In an interview Sunday in the Star Tribune of Minneapolis, Kunkle had explained that the Earth’s wobbly orbit means it’s no longer aligned to the stars in the same way as when the signs of the zodiac were first conceived, about 5,000 years ago. That means, Kunkle said, that when astrologers say the sun is in Pisces, it’s really in Aquarius, and so on. Saturday. The stampede was set off Friday night when a group of pilgrims in a jeep drove into a crowd of worshippers walking along a narrow forest path as they returned from offering prayers at the hilltop Sabarimala shrine in the
“Astronomers have known about this since about 130 B.C.,” Kunkle told The Associated Press Friday in his office at the Minneapolis Community and Technical College, his phone ringing constantly, as it had since the article came out. (One person had even demanded: “Give me my sign back.”) One of the more fascinating elements of the story was talk of a new sign altogether. By the reckoning of Kunkle and other astronomers, astrologers are not only a month off in their zodiac signs, but they are neglecting a 13th constellation, Ophiuchus (Ooh-FEEyew-kus) the Serpent Bearer, for those born from Nov. 30 to Dec. 17. According to myth, Ophiuchus became a healer when he killed a snake and another appeared with an herb in his mouth that revived the dead one, said Amy Sayle, an astronomy educator at the Moorehead Planetarium at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

102 pilgrims killed in stampede at Indian festival
KOCHI, India — A stampede of pilgrims returning from one of India’s most popular Hindu festivals killed at least 102 people and injured 44 others, police said
Answers to Friday’s questions: Visionary Czech scientist Otto Wichterle produced the first soft contact lenses in his kitchen using a contraption made with an Erector Set, bike parts and a phonograph motor. In 1961, with his strange apparatus, he developed a process that used centrifugal force to turn a water-absorbing plastic into soft lenses. The lines “Show me the money” and “You had me at hello” from Tom Cruise’s hit film “Jerry Maguire” are on the American film Institute’s list of top movie quotes in places 25 and 52 respectively.

state of Kerala in southern India, said local police official Sanjay Kumar. All the injured were hospitalized, some in serious condition, Kumar told The Associated Press. “We have recovered 102 bodies. The rescue work is almost over,” he said. The area was flooded with pilgrims and the stampede occurred nearly 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of the temple site, Kumar said. The annual two-month festival attracts millions of worshippers to the remote temple to the Hindu deity Ayyappan. The ceremony Friday marked the end of the festival, and an estimated 150,000 devotees were thought to have taken the narrow path out of the densely forested hills where the stampede took place, the Press Trust of India reported. Millions of devotees make the pilgrimage each year and nearly 2,000 police officers were deployed near the shrine to prevent such accidents from happening, PTI reported. A small stampede last week killed one pilgrim, it said. The difficulty in reaching the stampede site delayed relief operations, PTI reported.
with it so I’d say the program is effective. Sgt. White does a great job with it.” Special guest speaker was Joel Penton, who played five years for the Ohio State Buckeyes and was a member of three Big Ten Championship teams as well as the 2002 National Championship team. He was a four-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and received the Wuerffel Trophy, otherwise known as the Humanitarian Heisman, a national award that recognizes the one football player in the nation who best combines community service with athletic and academic achievement. Penton speaks to students all over the country about the importance of standing your ground and not backing down. The purpose behind D.A.R.E. is to inform fifthgraders about drugs and alcohol and the negative influence they have on a person’s life and their friends and family. Sgt. White is the head of the Allen County D.A.R.E. program. “Lots of times I’m asked how effective D.A.R.E. really is,” he said. “It’s my belief that we can never really know for sure because no matter what you tell them, some kids will still go out and try drugs. Likewise, there are some kids that won’t no matter what you say. But what we try to do with D.A.R.E. is address that gray area. There are studies that show the numbers of kids doing marijuana and smoking is going down, so it has to help somewhat. Personally, I believe in the kids. They truly are the answer to the drug problem. If each child says no to drugs, sooner or later the dealers will run out of people to sell to.” White says the main focus of the program is giving children the means to make the right decisions. “The number one thing is for them to make the right decisions right off the bat,” White said. “We have something called the D.A.R.E. Decision Making Model and hopefully that provides a good enough guide to help them make those decisions. We also put a lot of focus on tobacco, both smoking and chewing, as well as marijuana and other drugs and alcohol. We have these goggles that simulate what it’s like to be under the influence and they have a lot of fun with that. We give them this squishy ball and let them see how hard it is to throw it straight when your vision is impaired like that. But while they have fun, we make sure they know that some people live their lives like that, every day and that really hits home with them.” The program also addresses the various pressures students will experience as they come of age. “We deal with peer pressure and help them see ways where they can stay in charge and handle that,” White continued. “We also cover personal pressure, because a lot of times you can pressure yourself into trying something out of curiosity. We do D.A.R.E. Trivia as well, to quiz them on everything they’ve learned and they always enjoy that. And we do an essay, which is actually a really awesome thing, because some of them can really break you down. They tell you true stories and things they’ve learned and experienced. They really put their hearts into those and it can be quite touching.” The pressures presented by drugs and alcohol aren’t just

Summer Camp. “The summer camp is a good thing because the kids get bored,” he said. “Even though they get all excited for summer vacation they still run out of things to do. We like to provide a positive opportunity for them to continue their resistance education during the summer and stay out of trouble, while having a little fun. Delphos is a really great community that’s just been a great support for the program and the summer camp. The summer camp in Delphos has been very well attended in the past.”
