50¢ daily BY MIKE FORD firstname.lastname@example.org Volunteer fire and rescue personnel account for more than 60 percent of the firefighters and EMTs in Ohio, according to the Ohio Fire Chiefs’ Association. Cities of all sizes have the same fires and the same need for quality firefighting. The problem is many small communities can’t afford to pay firefighters, relying on volunteers to meet the need. There are three levels of state certification: volunteers take a 36-hour course that is a basic indoctrination and does not include putting out a blaze. Live firefighting is covered under 120-hour “level one” training. Then, there is a 240-hour course conducted near Columbus. Volunteer fire departments are becoming more burdened as the state requires 18 hours per year of continuing education it previously did not mandate. “Our recruits are in their early 20s and have full-time jobs,” said Ottoville Volunteer Fire Department Chief Dennis Bendele. “It was a lot easier when they ran a 36-hour course for volunteer training but they want you to put in the time and effort to get Level One training at 120 hours. If you do that, you’re qualified to be a full-time firefighter and can make a lot of money doing it in a big city.” Volunteer firefighters can range widely in age; the older persons work in a support capacity while younger ones respond to calls. Bendele leads 31 staff members ranging in age from 22-60. His colleague in Middle Point leads 38 volunteers from ages 18-80. He says minimal certification isn’t enough but he understands the “catch 22” many first-responders feel they’re in. “I volunteer with Middle Point but work for the Van Wert department. It’s easy for

me to go to training because it’s part of my job but for someone who works full-time, they have to squeeze it in during their time off. The volunteer 36-hour course isn’t enough; they’re being cut loose from that and never being put in a fire situation. They need to have Level One and a lot of volunteer departments feel like they’re being pushed out with the training. It’s a fine balance — there are more and more requirements being put on volunteer departments that some can’t handle financially,” Middle Point Fire Chief Craig King said. The OFCA Northwest District Director is Perrysburg Fire Chief Jeff Klein. He said firefighting is complicated. Not only has litigation increased overhead because departments can be sued if a firefighter dies in the line of duty but the risks have changed. He said fires are different than they used to be because of construction trends. “The fires we have today are different from the fires we had several years ago because more lightweight composite materials are being used. They burn up more quickly, so the structures collapse much more quickly than older buildings do,” he said. “On top of that, furnishings are being made of synthetic materials, whereas older furniture was made of natural materials. The synthetics give off gasses that are much more toxic. Firefighter training has to be current in order to protect firefighters and ensure quality service. People expect someone to come put out their fire and save lives. Not only that, they want them to do it with a degree of professionalism, so adequate training is needed.” Klein added that the uniform nature of policy-making also makes life hard for volunteer departments. “Laws covering the entire state always have unintended consequences.

Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869
“Laws covering the entire state always have unintended consequences. Volunteers go to the same fires as fulltime firefighters. When you’re a lawmaker sitting in an office, it makes perfect sense to require the same training for everybody. The problem is full-time guys like me have the time to commit to it. Volunteers already have jobs and there are demands with that.”

The problem is full-time guys like me have the time to commit to it,” he said. “Volunteers already have jobs and there are demands with that. They have families; kids are involved with many more after-school activities these days, so family life is more demanding. It’s becoming much more difficult to staff volunteer departments.” For this reason, the association plans to launch a recruiting campaign in February. The four-year program will attempt to counter the diminishing ranks of those who are the backbone of volunteer first-responder units. The group has been awarded a four-year Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant in the amount of $1,195,700. It is a competitive grant program that is administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency in cooperation with the U.S. Fire Administration.

Oscar-nominated British actress Susannah York dies
By GREGORY KATZ The Associated Press LONDON — British actress Susannah York, one of the leading stars of British and Hollywood films in the late 1960s and early 1970s, has died in London. She was 72. York received an Oscar nomination in 1970 for her role in “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?” and also appeared in the classic “A Man For All Seasons” before going on to play Christopher Reeve’s biological mother in the Superman series of movies. She died of cancer Saturday at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London. Her son, the actor Orlando Wells, said York was an incredibly brave woman who did not complain about her illness and a “truly wonderful mother.” He said she went into the hospital (Continued from page 1) on Jan. 6 after experiencing shoulder pain. York had a long, distinguished career on film, television and on stage, but she is best remembered for her early roles, when she had an immediate impact that started with her 1963 role as Albert Finney’s love interest in the memorable period piece romp “Tom Jones.” With its tongue-in-cheek sensuality and gentle sendup of the British aristocracy, the film is remembered as an early landmark in 1960s cinema, and York’s unmistakable presence added to its appeal. Her long blond hair, stunning blue eyes and quick-witted repartee brought her a string of excellent roles. York acted with major stars like Sean Connery, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, George C. Scott and many others, stirring some controversy with her daring

100 people were gathered amid the sea of get-well balloons and cards when the University of Arizona put out the condition statement. “Oh, that’s great news,” said Jean Emrick, a 50-year resident of Tucson, as a violinist played in the background. Her eyes watering, Emrick said: “Tucson is such a special place and she represents what’s the best of southern Arizona.” As night fell, candles at the makeshift memorial began to flicker. A mariachi band played the “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

portrayal of a lesbian in the 1968 drama “The Killing of Sister George.” In 1972, York won the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival. Her film work tailed off as London’s “Swinging Sixties” era faded into cultural history, but she returned to play Superman’s mother. Actress and politician Glenda Jackson, who starred with York in the 1975 film version of “The Maids,” said York’s death “came as a shock.” Jackson said York had been a pleasure to work with and was “too young to go.” York branched out into television and stage work, earning a number of accolades and awards throughout her long career. She made appearances in several successful TV shows including “The Love Boat” in the U.S. and “Holby City” in Britain.

Ohio murderer to be set free
School helps children communicate Part of Ohio highway
By DENISE SMITH AMOS The Cincinnati Enquirer EVENDALE — At 18 months old, Phoebe Krause’s silence was telling. The West Chester toddler did not babble. There were no “Mama’s” or “Dada’s,” just silence and screams. Her mother, Stacy Krause, was worried. A pediatrician thought the problem was socialization and recommended putting Phoebe in day care. But at day care, Krause said, “Phoebe was withdrawing further and was constantly laying in a corner, clutching her stuffed pig and trying to soothe herself.” Phoebe, now 4, was diagnosed at age 2 with childhood apraxia of speech, a neurological disorder that affects the motor skills that result in speech. Phoebe knew what she wanted to say, but not how to say it. She would need intensive speech therapy. Speech therapists at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus estimate that 1 to 10 children in 1,000 may suffer from apraxia of speech. Krause learned at a parents group that St. Rita School for the Deaf in southwest Ohio has one of the nation’s few programs educating apraxic children. The 95-year-old school in Evendale, best known for working with deaf children, has expanded into other communications disorders. In addition to its 65 deaf and hard-of-hearing students in its K-12 classes, it also helps about 45 students who can hear but have apraxia. In addition, the school’s growing preschool includes deaf, hearing and apraxic students. St. Rita’s apraxia program, called Sign n’ Say, teaches students sign language to give them another way to communicate while they build a language base and keep up with peers academically and socially. “Sign language uses a different part of our brain than spoken English does,” said Angela Frith, a spokeswoman. “It’s giving them opportunities to socialize and build up self-esteem.” Ellen Brigger, a lead teacher in the program, combines Montessori techniques with others she has learned that boost communications. Speech therapists are embedded in classrooms and computer programs demonstrate sounds and signs of each letter to help students. At a recent kindergarten class, a teacher read “The Polar Express.” Some children fidgeted and looked away, losing interest. When she silently “signed” the story, the fidgeters stopped. Students paid attention to each hand movement and facial expression. When she read the book aloud again, emphasizing certain words by signing the sounds and using her voice, the students tried to emulate her. Brigger said apraxic students’ reading comprehension on tests “goes way up” after they’ve seen a passage signed, even though they can hear it being read. That is because apraxic children’s brains have difficulty hearing and understanding the order of sounds and sentences, she said. “They’ll hear what you’re saying but the individual phonemes get mixed up,” she said. Their brains can be taught
COLUMBUS (AP) — Parole has been approved for an Ohio murder inmate who authorities say crafted a handcuffs key and used a gun made of paper and shoe polish to take hostages at a hospital where he was being treated in 1984. Ohio prisons department spokesman Brian Niceswanger tells The Columbus Dispatch that Ohio Parole Board staff approved Paul Brumfield’s parole last month. No release date has been set. Brumfield is serving a 30-years-to-life sentence for 1976 convictions for murder, rape and other crimes. He was taken in 1984 to a Columbus hospital, where officials said he surrendered 12 hours after taking hostages. He was found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Art museum to auction European paintings
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Museum of Art plans to offer more than two dozen European old master paintings as part of an upcoming auction. The Plain Dealer reports it’s the largest sell-off from the museum’s collection in more than 50 years. The 32 works, in 30 lots, will be offered at Sotheby’s in New York over two days, starting Jan. 27. “These are pictures that probably don’t have a place in the Cleveland Museum of Art context, but could have a happy life elsewhere,” the museum’s chief curator, C. Griffith Mann, told the newspaper. The auction house estimates the pieces are worth a total of roughly $700,000 to more than $1 million. The most valuable paintings among them are two depicting an ancient Roman battle, which are expected to generate $200,000 or more. The museum bought them in 1949, believing they were by the 18th century Italian painter Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, but experts later determined they were created by a follower of Tiepolo. Most of the works being offered are by minor masters and are expected to bring in much smaller dollar amounts. Twenty-one of the 31 lots are priced with low-end estimates of $10,000 or less. Many were gifts and have not been recently exhibited.
Bill would wipe out many Ohio education plans
COLUMBUS (AP) — Legislation is in the works to overturn many aspects of former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland’s plan for public education, including a mandate that districts offer allday kindergarten for free. The Columbus Dispatch reports the bill also would do away with plans for smaller class sizes and requirements that schools create family and civic engagement councils and issue reports showing how tax dollars are spent. Hopes are that the bill will “send a strong message from Columbus that there is mandate relief and cost savings on the way,” sponsor Randy Gardner, a Bowling Green Republican, told the newspaper for a Saturday report. Gardner plans to introduce the bill in the coming week and has about 30 cosponsors. He hopes to see it passed by mid-March, before new Gov. John Kasich proposes his two-year state budget plan. The legislation would allow schools that charge tuition for all-day kindergarten to continue doing so, repealing a provision that would require districts to drop the fees beginning next school year. “We have been pounding our legislators to do something,” said Superintendent Melissa Conrath of the Worthington schools, where the $1 million program serves about 80 percent of the district’s kindergartners. “This would be wonderful news, not just to the school district but parents, too.” Strickland, a Democrat, has said scrapping his plans would be reckless and irresponsible. He said the education systems laid out in the model would not be fully funded for years, largely due to the recession, but that it would be “very, very doable” once Ohio gets back to a more normal economic cycle.

Mom guilty in school district residency case
Republicans gained control of all five statewide offices and the Ohio Legislature. The new governor has said Strickland’s plan is unfunded and should be scrapped. He has promised to free schools from unfunded mandates and help them share services. Gardner’s proposal would not do away with all of Strickland’s plans, including its funding model, which gives aid to school districts based on the cost of funding a high quality education and calls for reducing the amount of money that comes from local property taxes, a central reason why a previous funding system was found unconstitutional. Gardner said he’s not opposed to all-day kindergarten, smaller class sizes or other initiatives but that government should not make such requirements without providing funding.

“If there is one basic element in our Constitution, it is civilian control of the military.” — President Harry S. Truman (1884-1972)
Record $14 trillion-plus debt weighs on Congress
By TOM RAUM Associated Press WASHINGTON — The United States just passed a dubious milestone: Government debt surged to an all-time high, topping $14 trillion — $45,300 for each and everyone in the country. That means Congress soon will have to lift the legal debt limit to give the nearly maxed-out government an even higher credit limit or dramatically cut spending to stay within the current cap. Either way, a fight is ahead on Capitol Hill, inflamed by the passions of tea party activists and deficit hawks. Already, both sides are blaming each other for an approaching economic train wreck as Washington wrestles over how to keep the government in business and avoid default on global financial obligations. Bills increasing the debt limit are among the most unpopular to come before Congress, serving as pawns for decades in high-stakes bargaining games. Every time until now, the ending has been the same: We go to the brink before raising the ceiling. All bets may be off, however, in this charged political environment, despite some signs the partisan rhetoric is softening after the Arizona shootings. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says failure to increase borrowing authority would be “a catastrophe,” perhaps rivaling the financial meltdown of 2008-2009. C o n g r e s s i o n a l Republicans, flexing muscle after November’s victories, say the election results show that people are weary of big government and deficit spending, and that it’s time to draw the line against more borrowing. Defeating a new debt limit increase has become a priority for the tea party movement and other small-government conservatives. So far, the new GOP majority has proved accommodating. Republicans are moving to make good on their promise to cut $100 billion from domestic spending this year. They adopted a rules change by House Speaker John Boehner that should make it easier to block a debt-limit increase. The national debt is the accumulation of years of deficit spending going back to the days of George Washington.

American-style. Adjectives sharpen their elbows as they vie to properly describe the Cold Warish moment Thursday when Andrei Sitov of the state-run ITAR-Tass news agency challenged Robert Gibbs about the Tucson shootings. According to Sitov, the assault was just an extension of American free expression, this time the “freedom of a deranged mind to react in a violent way.” Sitov prefaced his lecture with perfunctory condolences for the victims and families before opening his fire. From the outside, he said, the tragedy “does not seem all that incomprehensible.” “It’s the reverse side of freedom. Unless you want restrictions, unless you want a bigger role for government ...” Audacity had few competitors on this particular day. Being lectured about American freedoms by a man whose own status among the living wouldn’t be so assured under similar circumstances back home was rich in ironies. It was also horribly ill-timed.

Obama’s education focus faces hurdles
By ERICA WERNER Associated Press WASHINGTON — Signs of trouble are arising for President Barack Obama’s plan to put education overhaul at the forefront of his agenda as he adjusts to the new reality of a divided government. Giving students and teachers more flexibility is an idea with bipartisan support. Yet the debate about the overdue renewal of the nation’s chief education law, known as No Child Left Behind, is complicated by political pressures from the coming 2012 presidential campaign and disputes over timing, money and scope of the update. While education might offer the best chance for the White House to work with newly empowered Republicans, any consensus could fade in the pitiless political crosscurrents, leaving the debate for another day, perhaps even another presidency. If so, parents, teachers and students would labor under a burdensome set of testing guidelines and other rules that many say are lowering standards. It’s that scenario that the president and his administration intend to invoke as a way to rally public support and spur lawmakers and interest groups into action against long odds. “No one I’m talking to is defending the status quo,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said in an interview. “Everyone I talk to really shares my sense of urgency that we have to do better for our children. We’re fighting for our country here.” Duncan said Obama’s State of the Union address on Jan. 25 will reflect his commitment to education. Obama has spoken about the effect on the U.S. economy and competitiveness from lagging student test scores. Lawmakers and advocates will watch to see whether he keeps the issue in the spotlight in the months ahead. “I don’t think there’s any substitute but for him to be out front,” said Rep. George Miller of California, the top Democrat on the House Education and Workforce Committee. Democrats and many outside advocates say Congress must enact an overhaul this year, before the 2012 campaign. For some in the GOP, getting it right is more important than getting it fast, and they refuse to spend any new
The debt usually advances in times of war and retreats in peace. Remarkably, nearly half of today’s national debt was run up in just the past six years. It soared from $7.6 trillion in January 2005 as President George W. Bush began his second term to $10.6 trillion the day Obama was inaugurated and to $14.02 trillion now. The period has seen two major wars and the deepest economic downturn since the 1930s. With a $1.7 trillion deficit in budget year 2010 alone, and the government on track to spend $1.3 trillion more this year than it takes in, annual budget deficits are adding roughly $4 billion a day to the national debt. Put another way, the government is borrowing 41 cents for every dollar it spends. In a letter to Congress, Geithner said the current statutory debt ceiling of $14.3 trillion, set just last year, may be reached by the end of March — and hit no later than May 16. He warned that holding it hostage to skirmishes over spending could lead the country to default on its obligations, “an event that has no precedent in American history.”
From Russia with envy
money to do it. “There’s room to make cuts, and I think pretty substantial cuts, that would enable us to use some of those savings on things we think work,” said Rep. Duncan Hunter, a California conservative who’s the new chairman of a House Education and Workforce subcommittee. “I like the piecemeal approach. ... If you do it in bite-size pieces, you can tell what needs to be tweaked as you go.” The Obama administration produced a framework for a new law last year. It would ease many testing requirements, put a new focus on teacher performance and the lowest-performing schools, and replace proficiency requirements with loftier goals of boosting college graduation rates. Duncan has worked with lawmakers of both parties over the past two years to lay the groundwork for a rewrite. Republican and Democratic leaders of the education committees in the House and Senate say they want to move forward. “Everyone agrees this law needs reform,” said Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., chairman of the House committee.
Point of View
being lowered into the ground by her devastated parents and community. Gibbs soldiered through the awkward moment with grace, reminding Sitov that people had died, that lives had been rearranged, and that nothing about American values was consistent with the actions of the man accused of opening fire on citizens, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. “I think there’s an investigation that’s going to go on. ... I think as the president was clear last night, we may never know fully why or how,” replied Gibbs. “We may never have an understanding of why, as the president said, in the dark recesses of someone’s mind, a violent person’s mind, do actions like this spring forward. I don’t want to surmise or think in the future of what some of that might be.” Gibbs added: “There is nothing in the values of our country, there’s nothing on the many laws on our books that would provide for somebody to impugn and impede on the very freedoms that you
began with by exercising the actions that that individual took on that day. That is not American.” This may have been Gibbs’ best moment, as well as much-needed articulation of the freedoms we do, indeed, take for granted. Perhaps the Russian was merely toying with Gibbs, testing the limits of freedoms that wouldn’t be tolerated in his own country, where journalists and bloggers are frequently maimed or killed for speaking up. Last November, for instance, Oleg Kashin, a reporter for the daily Kommersant and also a prominent blogger, suffered fractured legs, a damaged skull and broken fingers (at least one of which was nearly ripped off) for writing something “offensive.” He recently had challenged destruction of the Khimki Forest for highway construction between Moscow and St. Petersburg, investigated an extremist organization and criticized a local governor. Another Russian journalist suffered a similar fate in the spring of 2008. Mikhail Beketov, who sought to expose corruption behind the same road, was beaten and left unconscious and bleeding in front of his house. Like Kashin, he slipped into a coma. And, like Kashin, his fingers had been mangled. Three had to be amputated, along with a leg. Message:
Never write again. Even though President Dmitry Medvedev has vowed to punish Kashin’s attackers, history suggests otherwise. Attacks on journalists in Russia are increasing and assailants rarely face justice, according to a report by Radio Free Europe. The Carnegie Center in Moscow reports that of 200 attacks on journalists and activists over the past 10 to 15 years, only a couple have resulted in productive investigations. Such stories of dead and comatose journalists are surely fresh in the mind of one Andrei Sitov. Thus, perhaps he found some perverse release in speaking out against the freedoms he was enjoying in a place he obviously felt safe. Let’s hope he gets the whole story straight: In this country, the freedom of a deranged mind to act in a violent way ends in a courtroom, and those who report corruption are protected even by the state they criticize. Thanks to the values he critiqued, Sitov was permitted his say without repercussion or threat of violence. We wish him Godspeed and good luck when he returns to Russia to report that the demented behavior of one man is never an indictment of freedom — and that most Americans understand the distinction.

Quickness, defense lifts Jefferson past Wayne Trace
By KEVIN WANNEMACHER Times Bulletin DELPHOS – Wayne Trace controlled the first half of Saturday night’s boys basketball non-league contest with Jefferson as the Raiders posted a 24-19 advantage. But it was all Wildcats in the second half. Delphos forced Wayne Trace into 14 second-half turnovers, nine of which came in the fourth quarter, as the Wildcats cruised to a 63-51 victory over the visiting Raiders at “The Stage” in Delphos. “Our quickness and the ability to put pressure on them defensively was obviously a big factor,” noted Wildcat head coach Marc Smith. “We were able to get some easy baskets and we forced them into doing some things they didn’t want to do offensively.” “We have to do a better job of taking care of the basketball and we didn’t do that tonight,” commented Wayne Trace’s Jim Linder. “They stepped up the defensive intensity and we simply didn’t handle it very well.” Wayne Trace widened the halftime margin to 35-28 with 4:12 left in the third quarter on a Gage Critten basket before the Wildcats answered. Jefferson turned up the intensity in the final four minutes, outscoring the visitors 13-5 the rest of the quarter for a 41-40 advantage. Ebbeskotte had an outstanding quarter as well, bucketing 16 points while recording four steals in the period. “We just had no answer for him,” Linder said of the Wildcat standout. “He is so quick and so athletic; he is just tough to defend. When he gets going, he makes all of their kids better players and then they are very difficult to defend.”

Wildcats 5th, Bearcats 10th at Lima Senior
By JIM METCALFE
LIMA — The wrestling post-season is less than a month away, with coaches looking ahead to conference tournaments. That is the long view for Jefferson head man Jeff Rex and Spencerville counterpart Tom Wegesin. The Lima Senior Spartan Invitational held Saturday was a good tuneup for both units as the Wildcats finished fifth out of the 14 teams and the Bearcats 10th. “Everything we do during the regular season, including today, is for the NWC, the sectional and so on. It’s always been that way,” Rex acknowledged. “You try and build for the end of the season. Overall, we wrestled well today but we have a lot of work to do. We’ll get back in the wrestling room (Monday) and see if we can correct our mistakes.” Wegesin concurred. “We just have to improve in everything; we’ve made great strides but that shows how much farther we have to go as a young team,” he assessed. “A good thing for me is that Tyler Shumate seems back from an injury he suffered during football; he was third at 171 pounds.” Darren Edinger was the best finisher for the Wildcats, grabbing runner-up status at 135 pounds. They had three thirdplace competitors: Christian Fischer (152), Jacob Leach (189) and Curtis Miller (215).
Tanner Vermule and Austin Lee grabbed fourth. Cory Binkley (130) was also third for the Bearcats. Jefferson returns to the mats Tuesday in a tri-match at Allen East, starting at 6 p.m. Spencerville is off until Jan. 28 when they head into the LCC Invitational.

They hit 3-of-5 free throws (7-of-15 for the game for 46.7% versus 3-of-4 for the hosts for 75%) to close it out. The Titans came out in a switching defensive scheme in the opening period but the Jays scored the first eight points of the afternoon, leading 8-0 on 1-of-2 singles by Geise.

However, two Logan Bonifas baskets sealed any doubt in the 63-51 Wildcat win. “It was a good win for us,” Smith noted. “Coming off of a tough game last night, the kids responded well and battled tonight. We need to take some confidence from this and build on it next week.” Ebbeskotte led all scorers with 28 points in the contest while adding four assists and eight steals. Dunlap chipped in 13 markers with four steals and Bonifas recorded 11 points and 11 rebounds. “We definitely saw some areas we have to get better at,” concluded Linder. “But we also had some positive things to take away from this. We just have to keep building and working hard.” Critten bucketed 22 points for the red, white and blue with Gudakunst adding 11 and Sinn chipping in nine.

Turnwald leads Big Green to PCL victory
By AUSTIN CLARKSON The Delphos Herald Austinclarkson_24@ hotmail.com OTTOVILLE — Nathan Turnwald went for 30 points and six assists Saturday night at Heckman Gymnasium to lift the Big Green to a 66-45 Putnam County League boys basketball victory over visiting PandoraGilboa. It was a close game after the first 16 minutes but the Big Green outscored their PCL foe 37-23 in the second half, thanks to Turnwald and a great defensive effort. The Ottoville fans were up and on their feet for the first half of the game as their Big Green came out ready to play. The Big Green jumped out to a 29-22 lead after the first two quarters, shooting the ball well. However, the Rockets (2-9, 0-4) hung with them. Troy Fenstermaker netted 16 points on the night for By AUSTIN CLARKSON The Delphos Herald austinclarkson_24@ hotmail.com the visitors, including four 3-pointers. Ottoville head coach Tom Von Sossan thought that his team was pretty consistent on the offensive side of the ball and came up big on the night: “We played pretty well overall; I thought that our offense particularly stepped up and played well. We got a lot of contributions from a number of guys; Nate did a great job and really broke out for a big game. I thought that we were able to run our transition offense effectively; Nate got us going and gave the rest of the guys confidence to step up. We thought about playing a zone defense after halftime to try and slow them down but ended up playing more man-to-man and it worked out pretty well. Hopefully, this victory will start to lead to some good things.” The second half was all Big Green as they built the lead up to double digits at the end of the third quarter, 49-35. With nearly all

DELPHOS — St. John’s, with senior Tyler Bergfeld doing most of the work in their man-to-man defense, held Shawnee star Trey Howard down for three quarters. Unfortunately Saturday night, it wasn’t for all four quarters. He exploded for 10 of his 14 points in the fourth period and the Indian defense held the host Jays to five points in a 48-46 non-conference boys basketball thriller at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium. “Trey is a heck of a player. He wasn’t as aggressive the first three quarters as he was in the fourth,” St. John’s coach Aaron Elwer noted. “He broke us down defensively; he’s very capable of that every night. It seemed both teams were pretty tired from tough league games the night before and he lifted them onto his back and carried them down the stretch.” The Jays (3-6) held a 41-34 advantage entering the final period and took their largest lead — 43-34 — early in on a Bergfeld (6 markers, 3 assists, 3 rebounds) second-chance basket. Cory Royster (12 counters, 5 boards, 4 blocks), a 6-5, 280pound junior who was a bull to handle for the Jays all night, replied with a putback at 5:52 to start the Tribe (4-6) rally. Howard outscored the Jays 10-3 all by himself over the next 3:31 — with the only points by the home team a triple by junior Alex Clark (9 markers, all on 3s) at 3:30 — to knot the score 46-46 on a 3-point play by Howard. Neither team could convert on the other end until late in the game. Off a missed shot by the Jays, Howard got the board and pushed it for a 3-on-2 break; he found senior Clint Spencer (10 counters) for a layup with three ticks left. With the Jays out of timeouts, sophomore Curtis Geise got a half-court heave at the buzzer that hit off the
Sophomore Curtis Geise hits a running jumper for the triple over Shawnee defenders Clint Spencer and Jamiil Williams to end the first half Saturday at Arnzen Gymnasium. Unfortunately, he was not able to duplicate the feat at the end of the game as the Indians scored a late layup to grab a 2-point triumph. backboard and the rim but did not go down. “I thought we did a decent job on Royster. We did a decent job defensively,” Elwer continued. “We had a nice start. We had a 9-point lead at one time but couldn’t hang on. It’s a disappointing loss because we were in position for a win.” Jays came out with their trademark man-toman defense, with Bergfeld drawing the assignment on Howard. Shawnee played a lot of 2-3 zone but used a 2-2-1 3-4/court trap most of the night that forced the Jays into 14 turnovers (11 for the Tribe). The Indians, with Royster getting six, built a 17-10 edge after one on a triple by Spencer with 35 ticks on the clock. Shawnee netted 8-of-15 fielders in the stanza (20-of43 for the night, 3-of-8 long distance, for 46.5%). The Tribe built the largest margin of the night — 23-12 on a Spencer deuce, forcing Elwer to call time at 4:33. The Jays responded with a 10-3 span over the rest of the canto, getting a running 3-pointer at the top of the key from Geise (11 markers) to beat the horn for a 26-22 deficit entering the locker rooms. This matchup tightened up in the third period, thanks to the Jays hitting 6-of-10 shots (16-of-41 overall, 7-of-19 downtown, for 39.0%) — that included 3-of-4 3-balls — as they dominated the period 19-8. A 24-footer from the left wing by Derek Klaus with a tick left put the Blue and Gold up 41-34.

Alex Recker had eight each for the hosts in the stanza. Shawnee netted 5-of7 singles (71.4%); grabbed 23 boards (8 offensive) as Howard added five (to go with 4 steals and 3 assists); and had a total of seven fouls. “We have our three wins in the MAC, which is a good thing,” Elwer added. “What we are lacking right now is consistency. We had a chance to get our first back-to-back wins but couldn’t maintain our consistency; that is something we will be working to correct.” St. John’s hit 7-of-8 at the line (87.5%); owned 26 off the glass (10 offensive) as Recker nabbed six; and had a mere six fouls. The St. John’s junior varsity stated unbeaten (9-0) with a 47-27 thumping of the visitors. Sophomore Ryan Buescher paced the victors with 10, while Andrew Bryan led the Tribe (4-4) with eight.

Recker leads Rockets over Lady Musketeers
FORT JENNINGS — The Fort Jennings girls basketballers held an 8-3 lead after the first quarter of the Putnam County League ballgame; however, that would be the only lead they held all game as PandoraGilboa started to make its comeback in the second quarter and never looked back. Their offensive threat, Stephanie Recker, was too much for the Lady Musketeers to handle as they defeated the home team 56-45 at “The Fort” Saturday afternoon. The Musketeers played very well in the first quarter as they held the Rockets to just three points; however, they could only managed eight temselves. Pandora struggled shooting the ball and Recker was held scoreless. The Rockets started to gain momentum early in the second quarter and took the lead in the first couple minutes, going on to a 16-2 run to lead 19-10 at the half. The Musketeers had two players in double digits: Lauren Norbeck led all scorers with 18 points, while Taylor Wallenhorst added 10.

We started to get back in the flow of the game again in the second half but it seemed like every time we made a big shot or made a run, Recker was right there with an answer; she sort of took over the game.” Recker led the Lady Rockets with 17 points, Galina Schniegenberg added

‘Social Network’ friends Globes
By DAVID GERMAIN The Associated Press BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The Facebook tale “The Social Network” won top honors Sunday at the Golden Globes with four prizes, including best drama and director, solidifying its prospects as an Academy Awards favorite. Winning the dramatic lead-acting prizes were Colin Firth for the British monarchy saga “The King’s Speech” and Natalie Portman for the psychosexual thriller “Black Swan.” Lead-acting honors for the Globes’ musical or comedy categories went to Annette Bening for the lesbian-family story “The Kids Are All Right” and Paul Giamatti for the curmudgeon tale “Barney’s Version.” The boxing drama “The Fighter” earned both supporting acting Globes, for Christian Bale and Melissa Leo. David Fincher, directing winner for “The Social Network,” said he thought it was strange when “The Social Network” script came to him, since he usually makes dark character studies about misanthropes or films about serial killers. His films include the murder tales “Seven” and “Zodiac.” “I’m personally loath to acknowledge the kind of wonderful response this film has received for fear of becoming addicted to it, so suffice it to say, it’s been really nice,” said Fincher, whose film also won the Globes for

doesn’t want to sleep with hers. “He’s the best actor! It’s not true, he totally wants to sleep with me,” Portman said, giggling. “Barney’s Version” follows the many loves in his life: his three wives, played by Rachelle Lefevre, Minnie Driver and Rosamund Pike, whom Giamatti described as “a trifecta of hotties.” “I got to smoke and drink and get laid in this movie and I got paid for it. An amazing, amazing thing,” Giamatti said. Bening won the musical or comedy actress prize in a field that included “The Kids Are All Right” co-star Julianne Moore. The film stars Bening and Moore as a couple whose family falls into turmoil after their teen children seek out the sperm donor that fathered them. “I’m very proud to be a part of this very special film about two women who are deeply in love and try to keep their family together,” Bening said. “My partner, Julianne Moore, I have to thank first. She asked me to do the picture with her. She made it possible for us to shoot it where we shot it, when we did, so Julianne — you are a class act, thank you.” The buzz around town on Globes weekend was not only about likely winners, but also about a lawsuit filed Thursday by a former longtime publicist for the Globes claiming the organization that runs the show, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, engages in payola schemes for nominations and awards. The allegations have been denied by the HFPA, a group of about 90 reporters covering show business for overseas outlets. Ricky Gervais returned as Globes host for the second-straight year. Gervais joked that Globe nominees weren’t picked just so that Globe voters could hang out with stars such as Depp. “They also accepted bribes,” Gervais said, referring to the publicist lawsuit. Philip Berk, who heads the HFPA, made no reference to the lawsuit during his appearance early in the show, simply offering a perfunctory plug for the quality of Hollywood movies. Gervais pulled few punches as the night progressed, mocking Hugh Hefner, Charlie Sheen, Cher, Bruce Willis, Mel Gibson, Scientologists and Robert Downey Jr., among others. “Aside from the fact that it’s been hugely mean-spirited, with mildly sinister undertones, I’d say the vibe of the show is pretty good so far, wouldn’t you?” Downey, a presenter, shot back, perhaps only half-jokingly. Bale, who won for his role as a former boxer whose career unraveled amid drugs and crime, thanked his collaborators on “The Fighter,” among them director David O. Russell and star and producer Mark Wahlberg, who plays boxer Micky Ward to Bale’s Dicky Eklund, Ward’s older half brother. “I’ve really got to give a shout out to Mark, because he drove this whole movie, and you can only give a loud performance like the one I gave when you have a quiet anchor and a stoic character,” Bale said. “I’ve played that one many times, and it never gets any notice.” Bale seems to be on the same awards track as his “Batman” costar, the late Heath Ledger, was two years ago, when he won supporting actor at the Globes for
“The Dark Knight” on the way to earning a posthumous Oscar. Leo, who plays the domineering mother of Ward and Eklund, had gushing words for all of her co-stars — along with her own mother and other ancestors. “Here in Southern California, home of my mother, her mother, her mother before her — look Mom, I got a Golden Globe!” Leo said. “Mark Wahlberg, you are a prince, you are amazing. It was so beautiful to play your mother.” “Toy Story 3,” the top-grossing film released last year and the second sequel to 1995’s digital animation pioneer “Toy Story,” won the Globe for animated films, making Disney’s Pixar Animation unit five-for-five in the category since it was added in 2006. Past Pixar winners are “Up,” “WALL-E,” “Ratatouille” and “Cars.” “Wow, were you two even born when the first ‘Toy Story’ came out?” “Toy Story 3” director Lee Unkrich said to his award’s presenters, 16-year-old pop star Justin Bieber and 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld, co-star of the hit Western “True Grit.” Robert De Niro received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for career achievement. The usually taciturn De Niro gave an uncharacteristically interesting acceptance speech, making jokes about members of the HFPA being deported (along with most of the waiters working the event) and suggesting that most people in the room hadn’t seen a lot of the films he was proud of, including “Stone,” “Marvin’s Room” and “Stanley and Iris.” “Some of you would be seeing them for the first time. You didn’t even watch the screeners, did you?” De Niro said. Among TV winners, “Glee” won three prizes, best comedy and supporting-acting prizes for Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer. “Boardwalk Empire” won two prizes, for best drama and dramatic actor for Steve Buscemi. The Globe ceremony traditionally had a strong track record as a forecast for what film would win best picture at the Oscars. But the two shows have split in recent times, with only one top Globe recipient — 2008’s “Slumdog Millionaire” — also winning the main prize at the Oscars over the past six years. A year ago, the sci-fi sensation “Avatar” won best drama at the Globes, but the Iraq War saga “The Hurt Locker” took best picture at the Oscars.

Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2011 Some clever ideas regarding new ways to add to your income shouldn’t go ignored or unacknowledged in the coming months. Both luck and your own skillful insights will be on your side. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Strive to be totally self-sufficient, because the very person upon whom you’re depending might be hoping to lean on you instead, causing your whole house of cards to collapse. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - You’ll be completely out of line if you reprimand another for not taking care of something that is totally your responsibility. Trying to pass the buck simply won’t work. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - If you get an opportunity to do something with friends, have fun and enjoy yourself, but try to do so as inexpensively as possible. If it turns out to be too costly, you’ll regret your extravagance. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - Find out what your mate desires before finalizing any plans that you’re making with others. If s/he feels differently about the arrangements, it could spoil the day for both of you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - The only way you’re going to find peace is to keep your priorities in order. If you take care of your chores and responsibilities first, you can then relax and recreate freely. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - It is imperative that you let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. If you don’t, there is a strong likelihood that you’ll be spending your resources as quickly as you make them. CANCER (June 21-July 22) As the day grows long, your patience is likely to wane and cause you to become rather harsh or abrupt with those who don’t instantly respond to your wishes. Don’t let this happen. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - If there is someplace you must be at a certain time, check the road conditions or your travel plans in case you need to make some necessary changes in order to avoid being late. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Someone whom you’ve engaged to help you close a deal might ask for his/her fee up front, but it wouldn’t be wise to cough up the dough until after this person has produced what they promised. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Coworkers or associates will be resentful if you place your interests at work above theirs. Be extremely careful that you don’t alienate all future support in order to accommodate today’s desires. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) It’s important that you have faith in your own capabilities and talents. If you don’t, you could let self-doubt gain the upper hand, and be whipped before you even begin. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Before making any financial commitment that includes a friend, make sure you have your pal’s approval. If s/he doesn’t want any part of it, you’ll be held responsible for this person’s fee.

Pizza Hut focuses on good food, friends and family
Chris Mitchener became the manager of the local Pizza Hut about 4 years ago, after leaving the Van Wert store where she worked for 11 years. Her transition has been a successful one, as she has instilled the restaurant with a management philosophy that focuses on making the customers feel at home. “What’s important to us is doing what’s right for the customer and treating them like a guest in our own home,” she said. Mitchener enjoys the small-town atmosphere of Delphos because it allows her to “really talk to the customers and spend time with them.” In doing so, she tries to promote the idea of keeping restaurant sales within the community. “We want people to come in and give us a try instead of going to eat in nearby towns. We want to keep the sales in our community,” she added. In order to increase the traffic through the Pizza Hut doors, Mitchener has introduced new menu items that some customers may not be aware of. They now offer three different sandwiches: the Bistro Hoagie, a Black
Forest Ham and Cheese and a Turkey Provolone. Also new to the menu are two choices of soups: Broccoli and Cheddar and Loaded Baked Potato. A cup of soup is only $2,59 or a half a sandwich and a cup of soup is just $5.49. They’ve also recently upgraded the children’s menu. Meals now include an entree and a side dish with a drink for just $3.99. The entrees include pizza, spaghetti, chicken wings, ham and cheese sandwich or cavatini. The sides are vegetables with ranch dip, fruit or pudding cup, bread sticks or garlic bread with cheese. Kids can also enjoy the Pizza Hut Birthday Club by filling out an entry and get
free kid’s meals on their birthday. A certificate will arrive in the mail. For dessert, customers can enjoy a succulent slice of cheesecake topped with their choice of cherry, caramel or chocolate for $2.99 a slice. Despite the tantalizing new menu options, the most popular item at Pizza Hut is — wait for it — the pizza! Perhaps the most popular way to enjoy the pizza is at the lunch buffet, which is available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday and on Sunday, as well as 5-8 p.m. on Wednesday. Daytime prices are $6.48 per person and the night buffet goes for $7.29. Managers are constantly adding piping-hot pizzas to the buffet and welcome input from customers as to what types of pizza they would like to see featured. Mitchener says the most popular item on the buffet is the cinnamon sticks, which often disappear as fast as the staff can supply them. She points out that despite the wide variety of pizza choices, the classic pepperoni is still the most popular, with the taco pizza close on its heels.
Some current specials include a large pizza with up to 3 toppings for only $10. All specialty pizzas are only $12. This includes the meat lovers, supreme, taco pizza and all chicken pizzas. The cheesy bites pizza is still $11.99 and the current special is a one-topping, stuffed crust for $10. With Superbowl night right around the corner, if you were planning a Superbowl
party, this would be the perfect deal for you. In the future, Pizza Hut will introduce the new “Big Dipper” pizza — an extralarge pizza for a great low price. The restaurant also is increasing its catering efforts. In addition, businesses can place big orders and have them delivered during lunch as long as they place the order a day in advance. Normal deliv-
ery times are 4-9:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 4-10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The Pizza Hut has about 25 employees and they are always looking for new people. Currently, Mitchener is looking to add some new managers to her team. The Delphos Pizza Hut is always looking for energetic employees to join the crew. They keep it fun while working hard.
