Economic development confusing to lay person
By KIRK DOUGAL Herald correspondent VAN WERT — There are many common misperceptions about economic development, especially in smaller communities like Van Wert. Some people believe places like Van Wert only need to wait and businesses will come. Others believe all it takes to have a business move to a community is to get next to the right person and convince them that your hometown is perfect for a new manufacturing facility. Nearly everyone would be wrong if they were to guess how long the process takes from the company believing they might need a new facility to opening the doors and producing the first widget. The process begins with marketing. The days when local government officials could sit back and wait for businesses to knock on the door are gone. Courting prospective companies now fuels the fire of economic development. “Most of our leads come from one of two places,” Van Wert County Economic Development Director Nancy Bowen said. “Existing companies happy they are here tell us directly that they are working with a customer or supplier that they think we should be in touch with.” That kind of information is often gleaned from the active Business Retention and Expansion program run by the Economic Development office. The other main source for leads comes from the Ohio Department of Development’s Leads Program. Companies have approached the state and sought the properties and communities which are ready for new business. Bowen said she usually receives a couple of those per week that match what Van Wert can provide. Not all leads are a good fit. One example is a food processor with a water demand too high for the community to meet. Trade shows also provide leads to companies looking to expand into new facilities. Bowen attends several of these per year but they tend to be less targeted and the ratio of businesses that do not fit is much higher. Typically, the companies involved are smaller and may not have the financing a large conglomerate might have. A perfect example of this is the green energy firms that manufacture solar panels. When complete, the Van Wert supersite will employ a slightly different process. Because it will be marketed to a large Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), the federal government and the Ohio Department of Transportation are likely to be involved. The first step after receiving a lead, is for Bowen’s office to deliver overview information. Buildings, utilities, workforce demographics — all of these items and more are included to show a site is ready for a new facility. “At that point, you are hopeful there is a followup and they will want to visit your community,” said Bowen. “That is your chance to really sell yourself.” The goal is continued communication between the community and the company: Did they receive the package? Is everything in the package that they need? This is all-important as the community tries to get to the next step: a follow-up call from the company. According to Bowen, people would be surprised at what the most important factor is at that point. “Speed,” she explained. “Accuracy of data, too, but speed is of the essence.” She said oftentimes, her

Delphos, Ohio office may only have a day to answer. That is why it is so important the economic development office constantly updates its information so it can point potential employers to its web site or pull a file and get it out the door immediately. It shows the willingness to work with the company and reveals preparedness. This is where companies begin asking for details such as skill-sets, recruiting needs from outside a 50-mile radius, workforce demographics and more. Companies also want to talk to existing businesses in the city — 1-on-1 without any economic development or local officials — so they can ask direct questions. “Workforce really turns out to be the number one issue,” continued Bowen. “They want to know from someone already here if we will follow through with training, let them know when there are new programs in place and if we continue to meet with them. That’s why the Business Retention program is so important.” Moving forward usually means bringing in other officials from the local and state levels. See VAN WERT, page 3

Contractor indicted for Ottoville man’s death

Opening reception set for art show
The opening reception for the first Delphos Area Art Guild High School Invitational Art Show will be from 2-5 p.m. Saturday in the 2nd Floor Gallery of the Delphos Museum of Postal History, 339 N. Main St. Awards will be presented at 3 p.m. in four categories: Painting, Drawing, Three Dimensional and Miscellaneous. Schools represented in the show are Botkins, Crestview, Jefferson, St. John’s, Fort Jennings, Lincolnview, Marsh Foundation, Ottoville and Van Wert. Former art teacher for Delphos City Schools Pat Rayman judged nearly 200 pieces of artwork. The exhibit will remain at the gallery until Feb. 11 and the Delphos Museum of Postal History will also be open for tours during the exhibit hours: 1-5 p.m. on Fridays; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays; and 1-4 p.m. on Sundays.

Twenty-two-year-old Andrew Roeder was renting a house in Ottoville when it exploded in September of last year. Roeder died as a result of his injuries and a utility company contractor has been indicted for reckless homicide. Douglas Beindorf of Gibsonburg is believed to have failed to check for gas lines when conducting trench work and a propane tank became compromised and later exploded. Sheriff Jim Beutler said the reckless homicide charge stems from the incident being an accident. “It’s not like this was an intentional act; it was reckless. His reckless behavior caused the death of another. Now, you can do that negligently, too. Intentional, negligent and reckless are different because there are different standards and burdens of proof,” he said. Roeder, a Marine Reservist, was thought to be in the basement and turned on a clothes dryer at the time of the explosion. He passed away on Oct. 9 in Toledo, where he was being treated. Beindorf faces up to five years in prison if convicted.

Hospital: Giffords moves to rehab facility today

Two years ago, the Allen County commissioners removed all local funding to the OSU Extension office. Because the organization was funded by a match, all public funding disintegrated. Private funding has kept 4-H afloat but its director, Mark Light, has resigned. This would mean closing the program, so commissioners stepped in to save it. 4-H Program Assistant Leeana McKamey is the only person left in what is now a one-woman show until Light is replaced. “This week, the commissioners offered to give us some funding because Mark did leave to go to another county. So, we will try to hire a 4-H educator to bring back into the county,” she said. The commissioners relocated $25,000 in contingency funds that is just enough to replace Light and prevent permanent closure. McKamey said this is a step in the right direction but her office is not out of the woods. “The funding is what’s required by the state at this time to get an educator in here. The only thing we’re going to get from the county is enough to get an educator after they gave us zero funding two years ago,” she said. “For two years, we’ve been running on private donations and the money that keeps me here in my position is all private. After two years with no funding from the commissioners, it’s great to have this funding. So, it’s a step in the right direction and it’s a great step.” The OSU Extension would have closed the office, resulting in the utter end of all 4-H activities, which have remained afloat with private funds. The match remains intact, restoring $50,000 for one person to an office that lost $267,000 in county funds in 2009.

DA: Chances to close abortion clinic abounded
By PATRICK WALTERS and MARK SCOLFORO The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Regulators ignored report after report of horrific conditions at a squalid abortion clinic, prosecutors said, leaving a trail of missed chances over the years to stop a doctor from performing illegal, late-term abortions that killed at least two patients and hundreds of newborns. The officials’ failure to follow up on complaints against Dr. Kermit Gosnell came amid a “live and let die” political climate that effectively ended inspections of all abortion clinics in Pennsylvania, according to the grand jury that indicted Gosnell. Gosnell, 69 — a family practice physician not certified to perform abortions — was arraigned Thursday on charges of murdering seven babies and one patient. The indictment against him detailed a gruesome litany of failures and refusals to uphold even the most basic public health guidelines. Authorities allege that Gosnell and a fleet of undertrained — sometimes untrained — workers ran a ghoulish operation in Philadelphia in which labor was induced in very late-term pregnancies with unsanitary equipment, the viable babies born alive and killed with scissors to the spine, and their body parts left in jars — or clogging plumbing into which unattended women had given birth. Nearly a decade ago, according to legal documents, a former Gosnell employee gave the state’s Board of Medicine a complaint that “laid out the whole scope of his operation: the unclean, unsterile conditions; the unlicensed workers; the unsupervised sedation; the underage abortion patients; even the over-prescribing of pain pills with high resale value on the street.” Nothing was done. In its report, the grand jury said failures of the Pennsylvania Department of Health and other agencies — including the Department of State, under which the Board of Medicine falls — allowed the clinic to operate nearly unimpeded since the late ’70s. It hadn’t been inspected since 1993 and wasn’t closed until it was finally raided as part of a drug bust early last year. “We think the reason no one acted is because the women in question were poor and of color, because the victims were infants without identities and because the subject was the political football of abortion,” the grand jury wrote. A spokeswoman for Republican Gov. Tom Corbett, who was inaugurated this week, said Thursday that Corbett held a morning meet-

ing about the matter with his new nominees for secretaries of health and state. “He called it horrific, and certainly public safety is one of his major concerns,” said administration spokeswoman Janet Kelley. Officials are reviewing the grand jury report and working on a response, she said. “It’s essentially looking at information gathering and certainly changing things for the better,” she said. The Health Department has not commented despite repeated requests from The Associated Press. Lawyer William J. Brennan, who represented Gosnell during the investigation, has declined to comment. Former Health Department official Janice Staloski personally inspected the clinic in 1992, but “let Gosnell slide on the violations that were already evident then,” the grand jury said. A decade later, when she headed the division that was supposed to regulate abortion providers, Staloski failed to order an investigation of the clinic despite having received several complaints about Gosnell, the report said. Staloski, who retired last year, declined to comment Thursday. Her lawyer, Arthur Donato, said Staloski acknowledged to the grand jury that she made mistakes.

High temperature Thursday in Delphos was 25 degrees, low was 18. Snowfall was recorded at 1 1/2 inches. High a year ago today was 32, low was 17. Record high for today is 59, set in 1951.

Dr. Gerard Francisco, the hospital’s chief medical officer, will coordinate her care. “It’s going to be a very big team that will address different impairments, but they will have to work together,” he said. First, they’ll check her vital signs — make sure her blood pressure and heart rate are good. Then specialists ranging from physical and occupational therapists to speech therapists and psychologists will give a slew of tests to see what she can and cannot do. The strength of her legs and her ability to stand and walk. The strength of her arms, and whether she can brush her teeth or comb her hair. Whether she can safely swallow on her own. How well she thinks and communicates — not just her ability to speak but also to understand and comprehend, Francisco said. It’s unclear if she is able to 6 SWEspeak. And while she is mov-

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s unemployment rate has dropped for the ninth month in a row although the state is once again above the national figure. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services said today the state’s jobless rate slipped from 9.8 percent in November to 9.6 percent in December. The national unemployment rate in December was 9.4 percent, down from 9.8 percent in November. The number of unemployed workers in Ohio dropped to 567,000 last month, from 580,000 in November. Officials say the number has gone down by 71,000 in the past 12 months.

TOLEDO (AP) — A computer glitch delayed credit and debit card charges made at the University of Toledo from showing up on bills for four months. The glitch affected Toledo students, staff, faculty members and frequent visitors who made dining hall purchases since September. The (Toledo) Blade reported today the problem was fixed earlier this week after university finance personnel discovered the glitch. All charges since September were processed Tuesday.

“It really becomes a team sport,” she said. “You are reaching out to all the resources and getting that information quickly.” At this stage, the community is down to about 10 proposed sites in the eyes of the company. Bowen said this can also be one of the most disappointing times. For instance, if the company needs a certain amount of rail access to an existing building, Van Wert could be out of the running. “That is why planning is so important,” continued Bowen. “You need to be prepared with the infrastructure in place in order to be ready for that prospect because they are not going to wait around for you to get the road and the sewer and the water done. They won’t wait for that.” All of the steps to this point are leading up to a site visit by company officials. “In Van Wert, our goal is to land a site visit because we show very well. Every time the companies come and see it, they go away saying, ‘You’ve got a great community.’ All of them,” he went on. “Main Street shows so well with the remodelings and our historic buildings show the community pride. Then you add to that the jewel of the Niswonger Performing Arts Center that is such a highlight. The new schools and the brand new hospital emergency room facilities, the country club and the mix of housing — there is nothing we don’t have right now.

And a major piece is Vantage Career Center. The fact that they are expanding and can provide all the training a company would need is the icing on the cake.” The attitude of the community also matters. When prospective employers come, they try to get a feel for how the community feels about itself and negativity can kill a project. Bowen noted if officials think the community is “on the fence” and may not care if new businesses come in, they will look somewhere else. They also watch to see how other businesses looking to move into the community are treated. Making the final few means multiple visits to the community. A recent prospective employer made the first visit a fact-finding mission. The second visit involved multiple company officials who took a tour, visited the site and met local officials. Bowen pointed to some companies that made visits without the economic development office knowing because they wanted to see it without local officials. By the time a community makes the final two sites, there have usually been somewhere between two and five visits. About 15 manufacturing and distribution projects are at different stages of the process. This does not count all the leads still in the beginning stages. That is why local and state officials hope the community does not focus entirely on the three companies since 2006 that have chosen other sites — all three in Indiana — after Van Wert was a finalist.

Obama to highlight economic success stories
By JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama wants to cast some light on economic success stories in the shadows of a slow recovery. And he is looking to find some more. Today, the president travels to Schenectady, N.Y., birthplace of the General Electric Co., to showcase a new GE deal with India and announce a restructured presidential advisory board to focus on increasing employment and competitiveness. Obama is naming GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt as the head of a Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. The panel replaces Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, which had been chaired by former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker. Obama announced late Thursday that Volcker, as expected, was ending his tenure on the panel. Obama, in a statement after midnight, said the council’s mission will be to help generate ideas from the private sector to speed up economic growth and promote American competitiveness. “We still have a long way to go, and my number one priority is to ensure we are doing everything we can to get the American people back to work,” the president said. For Obama, the visit to upstate New York is also an opportunity to claim credit for tax, trade and energy policies pursued by his administration as the nation attempts to recover from the worst recession since the 1930s. It’s the first of many treks during the second half of his term that the president is expected to take to put a more hopeful countenance on the economy amid stubbornly high unemployment. The GE plant is benefiting from a power turbine contract with India announced during Obama’s Southeast Asia trip in November. Immelt also has been an advocate of alternative forms of energy, and the GE facility, the company’s largest energy plant, is the future site of GE’s advanced battery manufacturing program. New battery technology has become something of an Obama pet project as a symbol of innovation, clean energy and job creation. “This is a company that has brought jobs from overseas back into the United States,” Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs said. The White House said GE completed a $755 million agreement with India’s Reliance Power Ltd. to supply gas and steam turbines for a power plant expansion in India. The deal will allow for about $500 million in exports from the United States, the White House said, and help support 1,200 manufacturing

DEAR EDITOR: Did you know? ... Last year our local Relay For Life helped provide lodging to 25 cancer patients and their families from our own tri-county area. These families were able to stay at no cost thanks to Relay For Life. Fourteen families were able to stay at Hope Lodges in Ohio that are fully funded through Relay dollars. Eleven families received lodging assistance in other cities. Last year, in our tri-county area (Allen, Van Wert and Putnam) 236 cancer patients connected with our patient navigator. She helped them receive needed services that were unique to each individual’s needs. Our patient navigator can help patients with medications, clinical trials, support services, transportation, and more. We are able to have a patient navigator in our area because of the great success of Relay For Life. Support programs in our tri-county area were used last year by 385 cancer patients and their families. Thanks to Relay For Life, Allen, Van Wert and Putnam county cancer patients are receiving great care and looking forward to a better tomorrow. Privacy policies prohibit me from identifying specific patients and treatments, but rest assured, our cancer patients are involved in all aspects of care and support. Some have asked me to forward their gratitude. The Relay For Life of Delphos played a huge part in these programs. Our Relay donations do, indeed, help our own people. On behalf of all cancer patients and their families, thank you for doing what you do. If you have not been a part of Relay For Life, please think about joining us. We have a team meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church on Pierce St. Come and ask questions. We would love to see you. Come out and learn a little more about what we do. Everyone is welcome. Sincerely, Sandy Suever 2011 Relay For Life Team Development Chair

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Former President George H.W. Bush and top officials from his administration on Thursday remembered the Gulf War as a time in history when the world stood united against a tyrant as well as a “textbook example” of how to go to battle. Before a crowd of 3,500 people, including Gulf War veterans, Bush and key members of his national security team gathered at Texas A&M University to discuss the 20th anniversary of the conflict, which began on Jan. 17, 1991. The war was prompted by Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in August 1990 under then-President Saddam Hussein. Bush said helping to liberate Kuwait and guiding as commander in chief of the U.S.-led coalition troops was one of the great honors of his life. “A few things I probably could have done better, but in the case of Desert Storm (the military name for the Gulf War), history will say we got this one right,” Bush told the audience from a stage at the event, held at A&M’s basketball arena. Sheikh Ahmad Humood Jaber Al-Sabah, representing Kuwait’s emir who was unable to attend, thanked the former president, his officials, the U.S. and its military forces. “Believe me, Kuwait and its people will never forget you,” he said. “We carry in our hearts what you did for us each and every day.” Bush was briefly joined by former Vice President Dan Quayle. Later, his top advisers — then-Defense Secretary Dick Cheney, former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Colin Powell, former Secretary of State James A. Baker III and thenNational Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft — and H.E. Mohammad Abdullah Abulhasan, Kuwait’s ambassador to the United Nations at the time of the war, took the stage and recalled the events leading up to the conflict. Their discussion detailed the efforts the U.S. made to try to resolve the situation diplomatically and build a worldwide coalition before deciding that military action was the only solution. “This is a textbook example of the way to go to war. Diplomatically, politically, militarily of course and economically,” said Baker, who added that Bush left no stone unturned in seeking a peaceful way to resolve things. Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, commander of the coalition forces, wasn’t able to attend Thursday’s event because of health reasons. He sent a letter that Powell read to the audience. “Our mission was victorious because we had the best-trained military in the world, the president had fortitude to make tough choices when they needed to be made and the unwavering support of the American people,” Schwarzkopf said. “Our mission in Kuwait ended 20 years ago, but the impact will endure for generations to come.” Powell said a peaceful solution was not possible because Hussein was unfazed by the warnings from the U.N. Security Council, by economic sanctions or by the buildup of U.S. troops in the region.

Kennedys remember JFK inauguration
By BRETT ZONGKER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Fifty years ago Thursday, President John F. Kennedy told the world that “the torch had been passed to a new generation of Americans” whom he challenged to “ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.” Caroline Kennedy told The Associated Press that she has been thinking over her father’s oft-quoted inaugural speech on Jan. 20, 1961, when he proclaimed that Americans “shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” “I think he really expanded and redefined our idea of what it means to be a citizen — that everybody has something to contribute and everybody has something to give back to this country that’s given us so much,” Caroline Kennedy said. “It’s not just an obligation, but it’s really a rewarding experience and really a belief in government and politics as a noble profession.” Kennedy joined members of her father’s administration, By LIZ SIDOTI The Associated Press civil rights activists, astronaut Buzz Aldrin and members of the first class of the Peace Corps — which JFK established — to mark the 35th president’s legacy at the Capitol on Thursday. About 100 members of the Kennedy family gathered at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The center on the bank of the Potomac River stands as a living tribute to Kennedy, whose White House embraced the arts. It opened three weeks of performances that will recreate moments from those “Camelot” days. President Barack Obama in opening the concert Thursday night paid tribute to the “unfinished life” of JFK and said his inauguration and his accompanying call for Americans to serve their country still “inspires us and lights our way.” Obama, who wasn’t born until later in 1961, hailed Kennedy for leading a “volatile America in this tinderbox of a world,” with a steady hand, “defusing the most perilous crisis since the Cold War without firing a single shot.” He also noted Kennedy’s work to help blacks attend their choice of college, launch the Peace

and 400 engineering jobs in the Schenectady plant. Obama also plans to take note of GE employees as examples of middle class Americans who are benefiting from the payroll tax cut he negotiated with Republicans in a December economics package that retained Bushera tax rates for all taxpayers. And he is expected to make a pitch for new business incentives and renewable energy tax credits contained in that compromise deal. GE and GE customers would benefit from those provisions. In Immelt, Obama has a useful corporate ally. As chief executive of a multinational company, Immelt was one of 20 CEOs who met with the president during a daylong summit at Blair House last month. He was one of 14 U.S. business leaders invited to meet with Chinese President Hu Jintao this week at the White House and was among the guests for the lavish state dinner that followed. In an opinion piece in the Washington Post, Immelt said the restructured council under his leadership would focus on manufacturing and exports, trade and innovation. “The president and I are committed to a candid and full dialogue among business, labor and government to help ensure that the United States has the most competitive and innovative economy in the world,” he wrote.

Poll: Obama popular but doubts on progress
WASHINGTON — Thumbs up for President Barack Obama’s personality. Thumbs down for his progress. An overwhelming majority of Americans like Obama, but most say he hasn’t accomplished much on two top goals — fixing the sluggish economy and changing how Washington works, according to a new Associated PressGfK poll midway through the first term of his presidency. Half of those surveyed say he deserves a second term, and independents, whose support will be critical in 2012, are evenly divided on that question. Obama is getting the benefit of the doubt despite concerns about his policies, a reflection based in large part on his likability. “He’s doing a pretty good job,” says Alan Bliven, 54, of Tucson, Ariz. “I’m not all sold on him,” but the president’s performance is good enough that he should be reelected. Joanne Abbott, 46, of Sebring, Fla., disagrees. “I don’t dislike Obama. I like him as a person,” she says, but adds, “I don’t think he’s accomplished much. ... I wish the economy would come back.” The AP-GfK poll is a snapshot in time, and plenty could happen between now and November 2012, including an economic upturn that could cut the 9.4 percent unemployment rate. But, in a polarized nation, the findings portend a competitive presidential race no matter who the GOP candidate is. Although beating an incumbent is tough, Republicans sense an opening, given the sluggish economic recovery and Obama’s acknowledged failure to fulfill his promise of doing business differently in a partisan Washington. Overall, 53 percent of Americans approve of how Obama is governing, putting him roughly in the middle when compared with his modern-day successors halfway through their first terms. Almost as many people rate Obama’s presidency below average (34 percent) as call it above average (38 percent). Forty-one percent overall — and 30 percent among independents — say he understands the important issues the nation will face the

Corps of goodwill ambassadors around the world and set America’s sights on landing on the moon. Though the country faces different challenges today, Obama said, “we cannot forget we are the heirs of this president who showed us what was possible. Because of that vision, I can stand here today as president of the United States.” Earlier, speaking at a ceremony in the Capitol’s rotunda, Vice President Joe Biden said Kennedy’s cause was to bring America back “to what it should be.” “His call to service literally, not figuratively, still resounds from generation to generation,” Biden said. The celebrations come as the Kennedy power in Washington has faded. For the first time in 63 years no one with the Kennedy name is serving in elected office. Patrick Kennedy of Rhode Island left the U.S. House this month. Caroline Kennedy said she wouldn’t be surprised if someone in her family returned to national politics — but that it probably wouldn’t be her. She flirted with a 2008 Senate bid in New York but bowed out.

next two years. Only 26 percent say he’s kept most of his campaign promises. Americans diverge over whether Obama’s prescriptions are best. “He’s too much of a socialist, he wants too big of a government, and he shouldn’t get re-elected,” said 72-year-old Tom Wilkinson of Sparland, Ill. “I’m sick and tired of Chicago politics, and I think that’s where he comes out of.” Art Winstanley, 58, of Key West, Fla., says Obama deserves more time. “Some things he’s done are taking time to kick in with the public. He’s got two years before people go ‘Holy smoke, this guy did a lot of good stuff!”’ Despite his lukewarm policy marks, Obama has an enormous advantage because of how people see him personally; a whopping 83 percent call him likable, and 59 percent view him favorably. Majorities also consider him empathetic (63 percent), a strong leader (62 percent), and in-touch with ordinary Americans (61 percent). The numbers are similar to the ones President Ronald Reagan faced before winning a second term in 1984.

Defense, rebounding lift Jays over Flyers Wildcats plow
By AUSTIN CLARKSON The Delphos Herald Austinclarkson_24@ DELPHOS — The St. John’s girls basketball team might not have had their best offensive game Thursday night against Midwest Athletic Conference foe Marion Local but the Blue Jays strong defense and ability to only allow one shot at the defensive end allowed them to do some things on the offensive end in the third quarter to open up the lead and go on to a 36-27 victory at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium. St. John’s was tested in the first half by Marion Local’s zone defense as they challenged the Blue Jays to take jump shots on the outside. The Jays did not shoot the ball all that well in the first half of action but they were effective enough on the defensive end of the court that it didn’t take many buckets to give them the lead going into halftime. The Jays took a 21-16 lead into the locker room at intermission and started to take the momentum of the game and really set the tempo of the contest. Leading the way for the Blue Jays on the night was Shelby Reindel, who netted nine points and was very consistent throughout the contest. Senior guard Becca Saine added eight points in the victory, including two 3-pointers, and she also led the offense by controlling the ball and not letting Marion Local go on any big runs in the second half. The hosts came out of intermission with a lot of hustle and determination. The Jays outscored the Flyers 11-5 and it was in the third quarter that really made the difference in the ballgame. Their didn’t rush things on the offensive side of the ball; they milked a lot of time in doing so. The Jays went 4-for-7 from the free-throw line in the quarter to put the Flyers away in the final minutes. Leading the way for the Flyers was Alyssa Winner, who led all scorers on the day with 15 points. Despite her efforts, her team failed to get anything going on the offensive side of the ball against the stingy Blue Jay defense, who only allowed one shot just about every time down the floor. With the win, the Jays move to 10-3 on the year and 4-1 in MAC play. Marion falls to 6-7, 2-3 in the league. The St. John’s junior varsity team also got the victory Thursday night by a score of 32-27 to improve to 9-4 (3-2 MAC). St. John’s pays a visit to Crestview for a 6 p.m. Saturday night showdown.

T-Birds pressure too much for Lancers
By Kirk Dougal Times Bulletin Editor MIDDLE POINT – The Lincolnview girls basketball team ran into a buzzsaw on Thursday night as Lima Central Catholic came calling and ran the Lancers into a 65-47 defeat. Speed was the name of the game in the Northwest Conference battle and Lincolnview head coach Dan Williamson said his players were never able to adjust to the pace the T-Birds played at. “We just couldn’t seem to control the point guard or (Stacia) Allen,” he said. “We knew that she was a nice player but (Ariel) McDuffie was a surprise. She did a great job – not necessarily scoring but she beat us off the dribble and got other girls open. That just set the stage for how the whole game would go.” LCC came out firing in the first quarter. Lincolnview’s Katie Dye hit a triple on the first trip but Allen answered with a trey of her own. After that, it was all T-Birds as they used a withering press to get repeated steals in the back court and easy buckets underneath. Lexi Kingsbery was a recipient of several of those passes but she also hit the offensive boards hard and finished with putbacks, Kingsbery had eight of her team’s 24 points while the Lancers mustered only 12, led by Kaitlyn Brant’s four points. The second quarter saw Lincolnview make some adjustments and they did a much better job of breaking the press and attacking the basket. But they tired as the minutes wore on and in the last part of the period, LCC put on a rush to lead at the intermission, 35-22. The third quarter sealed the game for the Lancers as they were unable to get any flow going on the offensive end. LCC extended its defense into the passing lanes and Lincolnview struggled to get good shots. Meanwhile, Allen was hitting two more threes and Tylyn Taylor added one of her own as the visitors doubled up on the Lancers to lead 51-30. Lincolnview continued to play hard and Dye had two more from beyond the arc in the fourth while six other Lancers also scored. But it was McDuffie’s turn to keep the ball instead of passing and her quick hands and feet led to runouts and short jumpers off fast breaks for six points. Lincolnview won the quarter but still lost the game 65-47. Coach Williamson was unhappy with the number of turnovers his team had but when they controlled the ball, they were able to score consistently on the break and in the halfcourt set. Even so, he was still looking for an answer about the turnovers. “I don’t know if it’s youth,” he said. “I don’t know what it is. When we do handle the pressure and get good shots they don’t always fall but we score when we take care of it.” Another continuing high point has been the rebounding as the Lancers, not blessed with the most height, have been doing a very good job of taking care of the boards. “I think the last couple of games we have really rebounded well. Carley (Springer) had another nice game tonight rebounding. She played hard and scored well. It will come,” he added. Allen led all scorers with 19 points while Taylor and Kingsbery both chipped in 12 for the T-Birds. LCC made 25-of-60 shots from the field for 42 percent, including 6-of19 (31.6%) from beyond the arc. The visitors were 9-of-14

Late Bulldog run buries Lady Cougars in Celina, 50-33
Times Bulletin Correspondent

By Jim Cox

CELINA - A tight Van Wert zone defense held Celina in check for 23 minutes Thursday night but a 13-0 Bulldog run at that point ended any hopes of a Cougar upset, Celina winning 50-33. Celina is now 6-6 overall and 3-2 in the Western Buckeye League. Van Wert is 3-10 and 0-5. Beginning midway through the first quarter the Bulldogs constantly threatened to pull away but the Van Wert defense kept them within striking distance. During the third quarter, the Cougs constantly jammed the ball inside to Alex Morrow. Although the 6’0 junior only had one field goal in the entire game, she continued to draw fouls. During a 2-minute stretch in the third quarter, she hit 4-of6 freebies to pull the visitors within 29-23 but that was the last hurrah for Van Wert. Katie Stahl came off the

Bulldog bench and promptly swished a three from the left wing with one minute showing on the clock and the home team was off and running. A back-court steal resulted in a Stahl layup and it was 34-23 after three. The ’Dogs extended that 5-0 run by eight more points to start the fourth period. Those eight points came from Christine Thobe’s 4-of-6 free throws, Lizz Carr’s layup and two freebies by Amanda Hoying -- 42-23, Celina, with 4:23 left in the game. Van Wert’s Ashley Mohr hit two free throws to end that run, then stole the ball and went the distance to cut the gap to 42-27, but the parade to the Bulldog foul line continued after that. Celina only had two field goals in the fourth period but was deadly from the stripe, hitting 12-of14 during those eight minutes. The Cougars led once in the game -- 2-0 after Brooke Keber’s nifty layup 30 seconds into the first period.

Celina answered with a 7-0 run (Carr layup, Taylor Guingrich triple from the right corner, Kylee Bader 15-foot baseliner). After that, it was an uphill battle for Van Wert. The biggest Celina lead prior to the fourth-quarter binge was a 14-pointer -- 26-12 -- with 1:45 remaining in the second period but the Cougs closed out the half with five straight points on two Morrow free throws, a Molly Gamble layup (Keber assist) and another Morrow free throw. It was 26-17 at the half. In the half-court, the Bulldogs were almost totally stymied by Van Wert’s defense, but the green and white scored often in transition after Cougar turnovers and missed shots. The Cougs hit only 10-of34 field goal tries (29%) while turning the ball over 27 times (17 in the second half) against the Bulldogs’ full-court pressure. Celina hit on 15-of-41 field goal attempts (37%) and had 17 miscues. Van Wert,

with Morrow dominating on the boards, won the rebound battle 26-20. Both teams shot well from the stripe -- Celina 77 percent (17-of-22), Van Wert 72 percent (13-of-18). Nine Lady Bulldogs scored, led by Hoying’s 14. Morrow and Keber led Van Wert with nine and eight. Celina won the junior varsity game 34-20. Emily Bihn (10) and Hillary Heiby (9) led the Lady ’Dogs in scoring. Ashley Dowdy and Hannah Hulbert had five apiece for Van Wert.

PAULDING — Jefferson’s pressure defense has proven to be too much for only one opponent this 2010-11 season. Paulding wasn’t going to stand in the way of the Lady Wildcats Thursday night as the visitors plowed through Klausing the Lady Panthers 57-30 in Nerthwest Conference action at “The Den” of Paulding High School. The Lady ’Cats (11-1, all alone atop the NWC at 5-0 and ranked ninth in this week’s AP Division IV poll) took a while — but not long — to crank up their trademark full-court pressure defense. Once they did, though, there was no stopping them. Senior Kristin Klausing (21 points, 6 assists, 5 steals) took care of half the offense with 11 points in the period. On the other end, junior Brittany Lewis led the thievery with four steals in the period (8 for the night; 6 points overall) as the visitors turned the Panthers over eight times (28 overall) in fueling the attack. That helped the offense shoot 8-of-12 in the stanza (23-of-47 for the night, 3-of-8 from 3-land, for 48.9%) to secure a 22-7 edge as senior Bridget Culp (all 5 of her points in the period) drained a trifecta from just right of the key with 47 seconds left. In addition to turnovers, Paulding shot 3-of-10 in the period and 10-of-36 for the night (0-of-5 triples) for 27.8 percent. The only player for the Lady Panthers (4-8, 3-2 NWC) that had any success offensively was 6-0 Jessica Farr with 12 markers and 11 boards but she often found herself triple-teamed by the Jefferson matchup-man. “That is what we want our pressure to do: turn the other team over and if not, force bad shots, get rebounds and get easier looks in transition. Our offense comes best when our defense is creating a lot of havoc for an opponent,” veteran Wildcat mentor Dave Hoffman began. “We also want the tempo of the game up anyway; that suits our style and personnel. With Farr, we used a defense with some man principles — on-ball pressure all the time — but we tried to force them into the trapping areas; then it became a zone and we tried to deny the next pass.” The Wildcats forced nine more Paulding errors in the second period but they turned it over five times themselves (12 for the night) and didn’t shoot as well — 5-of-13. Klausing tacked on six more points in helping the Wildcats build a 35-14 halftime bulge on two free throws by senior Emily Fought with 23.5 ticks on the board. “Actually, this was the best we’ve handled pressure all season. We’ve had many a game that we had more turnovers than points,” Paulding coach Lyndsy Shininger noted. “Our guards are improving but sometimes, it depends on the night. What was more upsetting to me was Pirates own final 3 periods against Musketeers CONTINENTAL — Fort Jennings and Continental were tied after one — 14-14 — in their Putnam County League girls basketball matchup in The Pirates Cove Thursday night. The Lady Pirates then outscored the Lady Musketeers 48-28 the rest of the way for a 62-42 triumph in Don Huber Memorial Gymnasium. Erin Weisenberger led the Pirates (8-4, 2-2 PCL) with a game-high 22, while Leva Weller added 14 and Taylor Williamson (3 bombs) 13. The Lady Musketeers (5-9, 1-3 PCL) were guided by Taylor Wallenhorst with 15 (3 trifectas) and Lauren Norbeck 12. They canned 16-of-45 shots, 5-of-9 3-balls, for 35.6

what we did once we got the ball over half-court.” The visitors continued building their margin in the third period, so much so that Hoffman began to empty his bench and put starters on the bench for good midway through the stanza. Their lead was 47-19 on a Fought foulline jumper with 42 ticks to go but Kayla Owens hit a long deuce and Abbey Edwards an 18-footer from the key with a second left to reduce the deficit to 47-23. B o t h coaches emptied their benches in the finale, giving varsity court time to their backups on this night. Culp Jefferson’s biggest lead in the period was 57-28 before Emily Shuherk scored the last basket of the tilt. “We only had 12 turnovers but half of them were sloppy mistakes, trying to make a pass without seeing who we were throwing it to,” Hoffman added. “That is the stuff we need to get cleaned up in practice with Wayne Trace and Ottoville next week.” The Red and White finished 8-of-9 from the line (88.9%) as junior Kennedy Boggs added nine points. They grabbed 20 boards (6 offensive) as senior Chelsey Fischer had six. They had a mere nine fouls and hosts Wayne Trace Tuesday at the middle school (moved from the high school), with a junior varsity tipoff of 6 p.m. The Panthers netted 10-of15 free throws (66.7%) as Ashley Myers added seven points to the mix. They secured 32 boards (13 offensive) as Sarah Nordone added six. They totaled only eight fouls and host Tinora Tuesday. “Klausing is a great player. She makes everyone else better,” Shininger added. Jefferson’s junior varsity (10-2, 5-0 NWC) controlled Paulding from the opening tap in a 38-15 destruction. Megan Gilden led the Red and White with seven, while Bland netted five for the Panthers.

Crestview hangs on for a 45-39 win over Spencerville
Times Bulletin Correspondent

By Drew Bittner

SPENCERVILLE – As the old adage goes, “a win is a win”. However ugly a game may be, the only result that truly matters is whether or not a team captured a victory. For Greg Rickard and his Crestview squad, that was all that mattered on Thursday at Spencerville as the Lady Knights overcame a sloppy second half and held off a rising Spencerville team in a Northwest Conference matchup, 45-39. The Lady Knights improve to 6-4 (4-1 NWC) on the season while Spencerville falls to 4-8 (3-2 NWC). This NWC game didn’t appear to be a close contest early, with Crestview jumping out to a 9-2 advantage. Jessica Burger opened the game with a 3-pointer and buckets by Madison Preston, Mackenzie Richard and Danica Hicks comprised the rest of the early run. Crestview maintained much of that lead for the rest of the quarter and only a late trey by Mackenzie Miller closed things up slightly as the Lady Knights led 14-7 after one. The second quarter was more of the same for both teams with Crestview outscoring Spencerville by a few points in the stanza to take a 24-15 lead at the half. “Obviously, Crestview is a much better team than what we have faced so far,” said Spencerville head coach Katie Fisher. “They are one of the better teams we’ve seen all season. They were hitting their shots and we weren’t. Hopefully, we can figure out how to hit better during the rest of the season.” One of the biggest reasons for the 9-point lead at the half for Crestview was its ability to take care of the basketball, only recording six first-half turnovers. Crestview has struggled with turnovers all season. “We are still trying to take better care of the ball,” noted Rickard. “We are doing a little better job of attacking the press but there are still times where we don’t make good decisions.” Unfortunately for Crestview, ball control would all but disappear in the second half. Spencerville’s defense opened the second half by forcing Crestview into turnovers on four of their six possessions. The Lady Bearcats capitalized on those miscues and closed within 29-24 with only 1:20 remaining in the quarter on a basket by Miller. Crestview responded with its own push, forcing Spencerville into a couple

of turnovers and buckets by Burger and Preston put Crestview back on top 33-24 at the end of the stanza. “It is all about details,” explained Fisher. “We do great on defense but then we go two or three minutes and can’t score. We are working hard but it is for nothing because we can’t score. We played great defense tonight. I was very happy with that but it comes down to details. We weren’t putting in our free throws and weren’t rebounding. We just couldn’t put points on the board.” The Lady Knights again turned up the defensive pressure in the fourth quarter and scored two quick buckets off turnovers right away. Kirstin Hicks dropped the first two points and sister Danica added another basket to run the Crestview lead to 37-24. “Defense is always going to have to keep us in the game,” said Rickard. “We aren’t going to outscore other teams by much. Tonight, we did some things well defensively but we still have some things to work on.” Spencerville didn’t quit. Miller scored six straight points over the next three minutes to pull the Lady Bearcats within 37-30 with 3:40 left. An old-fashioned 3-point play by Preston put Crestview back on top by 10 points shortly afterward but a 9-2 run by Spencerville made it a 42-39 game with 12 seconds remaining. An intentional foul called on the Lady Bearcats ultimately sealed the deal for the Lady Knights on the next possession: three free throws by Danica Hicks. “We are really happy with the progress this team has made but it really hurts to lose these games that we could have won,” Fisher noted. “Hopefully we keep moving forward and improving.” Spencerville’s Miller and Crestview’s Preston led the game in scoring as each put up 13 points in the contest. Danica Hicks was the only other scorer in double figures with 12 points for the Lady Knights. Spencerville visits Waynesfield-Goshen at noon Saturday; Crestview hosts St. John’s 6 p.m. that night.

that trust is so important. “Our offense has been a big reason for our success. We understand our roles more this year and how important it is to be inside-out oriented. We’re doing that better now than we did early on and that’s why we have more wins. The teamwork is incredible, too; our leading scorer (Bermejo) averages 7.7 points and our ninth scorer (Welch) 3.6. No one thinks they have to have the ball in their hands all the time or be ‘the guy’ on offense.” Bermejo (5-10; 2.8 assists) and Welch (6-2; 3.2 boards) lead an all-senior starting five, the lineup Brewer has this week: Pease (5-10; 7.0 markers, 3.4 steals), Harder (6-5; 6.1, 3.5 boards) and Keeran (6-1; 5.2 points, 2.3 assists). Senior Stoller (5-10; 4.9 points) and juniors Arellano (6-2; 6.5) and Guarnaschelli (5-9; 4.7) come off the bench. “The first thing you see with Delphos is how scrappy they are and how hard they play. Coach Smith really has them getting after it, especially defensively,” Brewer added. “Offensively, they keep things moving. We are really concerned with Ebbeskotte; he is their catalyst, their No. 1 guy and makes them go. At the same time, they have a capable group around him that can fill it up. “We have to play as scrappily and as hard as they do, matching their intensity. We have to play our usual defensive game and do the job.” The tipoff tonight is at 6 p.m. with the junior varsity game.

Jays need new game plan vs. Flyers
By JIM METCALFE It used to be that you knew what Marion Local’s boys cagers were going to do every game: run a signature 2-3 matchup zone on defense and a flex set on offense. For St. John’s coach Aaron Elwer, those days are over under first-year Flyer coach Mark Delaney. He has to throw out any old films/scouting reports and make way for new ones as these two teams tangle tonight (6:30 p.m.) at The Hangar in Midwest Athletic Conference action. “Their defense is strictly man-to-man, whether fullor half-court, and they run a lot of motion. Occasionally, they will run and jump out of the man and will use a trapping 2-2-1 full-court,” Elwer began. “They are much more up-tempo, looking to get quick shots. They run a lot of 3-around, 2-in half-court sets. They are four deep in the post with decent size — not what they have had but still good — strength and physicality and their top scorer, Ryan Mescher, can go inside or out.” The Jays (3-6, 3-0 MAC), who may be minus senior A.J. Klausing (4.3 points per outing) due to injury, have settled on a starting five of seniors Alex Recker (5.9, 4.9 boards), Derek Klaus (5.2 markers, 4.3 boards), Ty Bergfeld (3.9 markers) and Scott Klausing (2.2, 2.2 assists) and sophomore Curtis Geise (14.8 counters, 3.8 rebounds). Off the bench come seniors Jordan Leininger (3.2 points) and Austin Vogt (2.3) and juniors Alex Clark (4.7) and Ryan Densel (.4). “With their size and strength inside, we’re concerned about defending them in the post and battling with them on the glass. As well, Mescher is a tough matchup with his ability to shoot from deep or get to the basket,” Elwer said. The Jays stayed unbeaten in the MAC with a 6-point win over St. Henry last Friday but then lost a last-second 2-point game to Shawnee the next night. “Right now, we’re not consistent in any area of our game. One night, we might be solid offensively but not the next,” Elwer added. “Or it could be on the defensive end, where we have a couple of key breakdowns one night when we don’t the next. Or ballhandling, where we don’t value the basketball enough on every possession from night to night. “We’ve talked to the kids during practice about practicing consistently then and trying to take that to the floor on game nights, especially back-to-backs.” Delaney has built a 4-4 team (1-2 in the MAC) in his first season after taking over for long-time coach Keith Westrick. “It’s been a good first year and a great experience. We had the slow start from football and we’ve installed entirely new systems on both ends of the floor but the kids are adapting to it pretty quickly,” Delaney noted. “Basketball is a game of habits and the kids have had to make new habits after all the years of playing a certain style. We’ve scrapped the matchup zone and flex offense they have had here since Keith and Jack Albers before him. It used to be they could just go to an assigned spot and worry about that; they knew where they needed to be. Now, they have to read


and react to what their man is doing; it takes a lot of patience to make that transition and you have to make multiple decisions in every possession. “Overall, though, I like our progress. I told the kids that our goal was to be clicking by the end of January; we’re going to need to because we have eight games in the next two weeks, so we won’t have a lot of time to work on things in practice.” Five seniors dot the Flyer rotation, with the starting five altering dependent upon the opponent: Mescher (15 points), Jesse Winner, Josh Berning, John Elking and Mitch Bergman; juniors Alex Rosenbeck, Lee Perrion and Craig Knapke; and freshman Adam Bertke. “Playing St. John’s is like going against a mirror image. We do very much the same things they have done for years,” Delaney added. “Neither of us use a lot of sets on offense. You won’t see much of anything different from man-to-man, either. We’ll up-tempo the game and our lineup will change due to the matchups we see. “This game, like always, will come down to execution of your game plan.”

8— The Herald

As a regular part of his ministry, Archbishop Edwin O’Brien of Baltimore says Masses on behalf of Catholics who have left the church. The unique element of these rites is that he offers his prayers for anyone he has -- during his 45 years as a priest, with or without knowing it -- driven away from Catholic pews and altars. This isn’t the kind of ecclesiastical issue that makes headlines. Nevertheless, this is a quiet kind of crisis that priests must take seriously, said O’Brien, in a Franciscan University forum that included current and potential seminarians. How many lapsed or former Catholics, he asked, slipped away because they felt “talked down to or lectured at by preachers or confessors who don’t really know them or who appreciate how difficult their struggles are just to get through life?” How many, he added, are haunted by a clergy comment, “often at an emotional time in their lives,” that wounded them so deeply they became convinced that it justified leaving the church? How many drifted away to Protestant mega churches because of “our dull, lifeless and irrelevant homilies”? The priesthood has faced many crises during the past generation or two and O’Brien offered no easy solutions.

The Catholic Church still needs priests

On Religion
Obviously, he couldn’t ignore three decades of scandals caused by the sexual abuse of thousands of children and young people by priests and bishops. O’Brien also discussed the hierarchy’s problems finding new priests, yet avoided the stark statistics that are so familiar to American Catholics. In 1965, they had 58,000 priests. Now there are about 40,000 and, if trends stay the same, there will be 31,000 in a decade, with most over 65 years of age. While these crises dominate the news, O’Brien stressed that Catholic leaders cannot overlook the personal challenge of helping potential seminarians struggle with this timeless question: Does God want me to be a priest? As a former seminary leader, in the New York archdiocese and in Rome, O’Brien said he has added a more nuanced set of follow-up questions.

“Why are you living your life here and now?” he asked the audience at his late-2010 lecture on the Steubenville, Ohio, campus. “What is your radical motivation? Are you here on this earth to give or to get?” The cultural changes that rocked Catholicism after the 1960s made it even more of a challenge to answer these kinds of questions. O’Brien saw this era up close, since he was ordained in 1965 and, as an Army chaplain with the rank of captain, served a tour of duty in Vietnam. In the “heady years” after the Second Vatican Council, it seemed that Catholics “saw almost everything go up for grabs” in their parishes and “in Western Culture in general.” Priests were “leaving by the droves” and, at times, he noted, it seemed as if “follow your conscience” stood alone as the “only criterion for morality, heedless of any objective moral truth.” Many seminaries lowered their admissions requirements in an attempt to find more priests. O’Brien offered a blunt analysis of that decision: “Many of the horrendous sexual scandals, I think, can be traced to the breakdown of seminary formation from 1965 to the early 1980s.” The continuing aftershocks are familiar to priests who keep trying to defend church teach-

ings and traditions. The archbishop noted that a recent survey by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life found that 45 percent of Catholics didn’t know that their church believes that the bread and wine consecrated during the Mass are not mere symbols, but become the body and blood of Jesus Christ. A survey commissioned by the Knights of Columbus found that 82 percent of Catholics between the ages of 18 and 29 agreed with this statement: “Morals are relative, that is, there is no definite right and wrong for everybody.” This is sobering, but Catholics must not lose hope, said O’Brien. God will raise up priests who are willing to wrestle with ancient and modern questions while serving in what the archbishop called a “post-Christian” culture. A missionary bishop in an earlier era, he noted, stated the challenge this way: “The task of a missionary is to go to a place where he is not wanted to sell a pearl whose value, although of great price, is not recognized, to a people who are determined not to accept it -even as a gift.”

Push for healthier food gets big boost
By MARY CLARE JALONICK and ANNE D’INNOCENZIO The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Attention, Walmart shoppers: The food in your cart, from fruit drinks to salad dressing, may soon get healthier. The nation’s largest grocer said Thursday it will reformulate thousands of store-brand products to reduce sodium and sugar and push its suppliers to do the same. It also promises to reduce prices on produce and build stores in poor areas that don’t already have grocery stores. First lady Michelle Obama said WalMart’s plans have “the potential to transform the marketplace and help Americans put healthier foods on their tables every single day.” She lent star power to Wal-Mart Stores Inc. executives as they announced the effort in Washington as part of her campaign against obesity. A number of food makers have made similar moves, lowering sodium in their products based on shopper demand and increasing scrutiny by health groups. Bumble Bee Foods, General Mills Inc., Campbell Soup Co., PepsiCo Inc. and Kraft Foods Inc. all announced sodium reductions to their products last year. Wal-Mart’s size, however, gives it unique power to shape what people eat. The grocery business of the nation’s largest retailer accounts for about 15 percent of the industry in the U.S. and is nearly twice the size of No. 2 competitor Kroger. “This is a game changer,” said Michael Hicks, associate professor of economics at Ball State University and author of a book on Wal-Mart’s economic impact. “If Wal-Mart could reduce the prices on healthy food and provide access to them in more places, you could have a measurable effect on incidences of diabetes and heart-related ailments.” About 20 percent of Wal-Mart’s food products are sold under its Great Value store brand, Hicks estimates. Making brand-name products healthier will require help from suppliers, but the company’s influence over them is already clear. When Wal-Mart pressed producers to use less packaging, for example, they responded. Now deodorant and toothpaste are sold without boxes. “The whole industry shifted, and this will likely be the case for sodium and sugars,” Hicks said. Robert Lawrence, a professor at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, agreed that Wal-Mart could wield great influence on nutrition but is skeptical about how hard it will push. “Is Wal-Mart going to push Pepsi and

Voice box enables woman to speak
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A woman whose natural voice could have been silenced forever because of vocal cord damage is able to talk again after undergoing a rare voice box transplant. Brenda Charett Jensen, 52, reunited Thursday with the team of surgeons who performed the delicate operation last October, only the second surgery of its kind performed in the United States. “It’s just been amazing — simply, simply amazing. And I’m still in shock,” Jensen said in a raspy voice at a news conference with her doctors. “I never know what’s going to come tomorrow, but I know it’s going to be better than where I’ve been.” Jensen damaged her vocal cords more than a decade ago after she repeatedly pulled out her breathing tube while under sedation in the hospital. Because the injury left her breathing passage completely closed, the Modesto woman had also been unable to smell — a sensation that she is enjoying again. Before the transplant, Jensen “talked” with the help of a handheld device that produces an electronic voice. The robotic-sounding device, which Jensen’s granddaughter dubbed the “talkie-talkie,” led to people hanging up on her or treating her like she was not there, so Jensen said the risk of the surgery was worth it. After years of putting up

“It’s just been amazing — simply, simply amazing. And I’m still in shock. I never know what’s going to come tomorrow, but I know it’s going to be better than where I’ve been.”
— Brenda Charett Jensen with humiliation and teasing, “I was game to go. I wanted to talk again,” said Jensen, a slim woman who walks with a cane. The operation lasted 18 hours over two days. Doctors replaced her voice box, windpipe and thyroid gland with that of a donor who died in an accident. The transplant, which came after nearly two years of planning, was led by the University of California-Davis Medical Center and included experts from England and Sweden. Surgeons spent 10 hours working under a high-power microscope as they sewed the nerves back together, he said. Two weeks after the transplant, Jensen voiced her first words to her doctors in a hoarse tone: “Good morning,” followed by “I wanna go home” and “You guys are amazing.”

Woman kidnapped in 1987 reunites with family
By COLLEEN LONG Associated Press

Coca-Cola to make sugar-free drinks to replace the shelf after shelf of those that they sell?” Lawrence asked. Wal-Mart said it plans to reduce sodium by a quarter and cut added sugars in some of its store-brand products by 2015. It also plans to remove remaining industrially produced trans fats and develop a logo for products that meet its criteria for health. To start, the company plans to concentrate on products like lunch meats, fruit juices and salad dressings that are high in sugar or sodium that consumers don’t realize they’re consuming. Besides the changes to its products, WalMart said it would reduce prices on fruits and vegetables by $1 billion a year by attempting to cut unnecessary costs from the supply chain. The company also said it would work to reduce prices on healthier items made with more expensive ingredients.

NEW YORK — A woman stolen as an infant from a hospital crib two decades ago spent Thursday at a Manhattan hotel with her long-lost mother as investigators sought the evidence they need to identify and arrest her kidnapper. No suspects were ever identified in the 1987 disappearance of Carlina White, the 19-day-old infant who vanished from Harlem Hospital. The hospital had no surveillance video. Her parents left the hospital to rest after the baby was admitted in the middle of the night with a high fever. She was missing when they came back. The parents, Joy White and Carl Tyson, said a woman who looked like a nurse had comforted them at the hospital. She disappeared afterward and apparently never worked there, family said. As the years went by, it turned out, the best investigator on the case was Carlina herself, living under the name Nejdra Nance in Bridgeport, Conn. She had long suspected she was at least adopted because the person who raised her, a woman who went by Ann Pettway, could never provide her with a birth certificate. She didn’t look like anyone she lived with, police and her family said. And Pettway was abusive, family said. “Carlina knows best, but she said the woman put her footprint on her face. I don’t understand how you could do that,” said Lisa White-Heatley, the woman’s aunt. A telephone message left for Pettway, who has had recent addresses in Bridgeport and Raleigh, N.C., wasn’t returned. A relative in Bridgeport told The Associated Press he was shocked by the story that Nance had been abducted. “I don’t know too much about this,” Kapel Pettway said. “It stuns me. It hurts me. After all these years. I thought (Ann Pettway) was her mother.” Periodically, Nance would check the website of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, looking through photos of missing infants in Connecticut, she told the New York Post. She left Connecticut for Atlanta years ago and has a 5-year-old daughter of her own, her family said. Her family said she worked as a dispatcher and hoped to have a modeling career.

Meanwhile, Joy White never gave up hope that she would find her firstborn. “She always knew she was alive,” White-Heatley said. On Jan. 4, Nance, now 23, checked the website again, but searched this time through New York’s missing children, and saw a baby photo that looked nearly identical to hers, police said. She contacted the site, who contacted Joy White. The two exchanged photos and talked. After a DNA test, it was all confirmed. Authorities are looking at whether federal officials should take over because the statute of limitations may have expired in New York, said chief NYPD spokesman Paul Browne. There is no limitation in federal missing children cases. FBI officials in Bridgeport were looking into the case there. Nance was too young to remember if the woman who raised her was with her the entire time, police said. Investigators aren’t saying whether they have identified any suspects, but the White family believes Ann Pettway is the kidnapper. “We have our suspicions in this case, but you need more than that for probable cause,” Browne said. Authorities have interviewed Nance, her biological parents and want to speak to Nance again. It wasn’t known if they interviewed Pettway. White’s family said they want the kidnappers found and punished. But right now, they are focusing on having their daughter back. Joy White and her family met Nance before the DNA test was confirmed because she felt sure Nance was Carlina. Nance was in New York from today until Tuesday with her daughter but returned to Atlanta. “We took pictures, Joy cooked. We had a good time,” said White-Heatley, Joy’s older sister. “Everyone was so happy. It was like she was never missing.” After the DNA test results came back Wednesday, Nance returned to New York and was with her mother at a hotel. Calls from the AP to Joy White and her daughter were not returned. But Nance told the New York Post in an interview posted Thursday that reuniting with her family was like a dream. “I’m so happy. At the same time, it’s a funny feeling because everything’s brand-new. It’s like being born again,” she said.

obstruction, malnutrition, anal fissures, ulcers, fistulas (an abnormal connection between different parts of the intestine) and more. There is also an increased risk of colon cancer; however, the vast majority (more than 90 percent) of sufferers never develop it. There are several types of treatment available. The first type is antiinflammatory drugs, such as the Apriso (mesalamine) that your grandson is on, as well as azulfidine and corticosteroids. Immune-system suppressors are also used. Your grandson was placed on at least one of these, Humira (adalimumab). There are CALL several others in this category. Antibiotics, which may be helpful in treating some of the complications, such as ulcers, abscesses and fistulas, may also be beneficial for those to place without complications, as many researchers an ad believe that antibiotics will reduce levels of harmful bacteria within the intestine, as well as suppress its immune system. Commonly used medications include pain relievers, antidiarrheals, iron supplements, laxatives, vitamin B12 injections, calcium and vitamin D, and/or S I P S QT special diets, such as nutrients introduced HOS EN MUE directly into the veins, which can bypass OT A TO DE A the stomach and intestine, thus reversing malnutrition.

DEAR DR. GOTT: My 19-year-old grandson was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease two years ago. At that time, he was a 234-pound linebacker entering his senior year of high school. Now he is a 174-pound 19-year-old struggling with life in general and would easily pass for 40. He has practically missed two years of his life due to extreme pain, which resulted in hospital trips and everything else associated with this condition. He has taken every medication I can imagine, including Humira injections into his stomach. At present, he is taking hyoscyamine and Apriso plus pain medication when it gets too severe. He has a colonoscopy every year. When he has one of these “attacks,” the pain is so severe that he gets in a fetal position and can barely walk. He has been to the hospital at least 15 times in the past two years. He recently went twice in one week and before that, in just a three-month span, he went seven times. He is unable to work because he is sick or too weak to function at least five days a week. He has never used drugs, alcohol or tobacco. Surgery has been suggested, but we are trying to avoid that if possible. He has seen at least six different doctors, and we are now hoping that you can help us. Please. DEAR READER: Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It can be debilitating and may lead to life-threatening complications, so it should be taken seriously by the sufferer and the treating physician(s). While there is no I P S cure, there is good news. Today’s S L I treatments can greatly reduce L E R symptoms and may even lead to E D S long-term remission. symptoms The most common include diarrhea, abdominal pain GO and cramping, reduced appetite, A M S weight loss, ulcers and blood stool. Others, especially I N S in thewith severe Crohn’s, may those T I N also experience inflammation of the liver or bile ducts, arthritis, L O P fever, fatigue, skin disorders and E K A eye inflammation. Children may experience delayed growth or A R Y sexual development. NA Complications include bowel

Beau wants to be hero

Friday, January 21, 2011

The Herald – 11

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
Saturday, January 22, 2011 A couple of new, constructive relationships are likely to be formed with persons in your field of endeavor during the year ahead. What you have in common is what will draw you together, but your personalities will cement the friendship. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Before requesting a favor from a friend, you should make certain that s/he has the necessary knowledge or ability to help you out. Don’t allow an ineffective person to have any serious input in your affairs. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - In order to achieve an objective that you deem significant, you must be careful that you don’t take on an associate who could unwittingly tie you down. Remain free to shake, rattle and roll. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - If you find yourself being a bit lethargic, select activities that stimulate your circulation. Being active will enhance your zest for success. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Upon occasion, certain people can become an irritating bundle of nerves. If you’re confronted with such a person, ignore your chagrin and you’ll help this person relax once again. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - It could be more important than usual to keep your word. Acknowledge your pledge and follow through on it, no matter how much it may inconvenience you to do so. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Give it some time, and there is no question that you will find little ways to resolve a certain situation that has been annoying you. The results will be impressive. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - The temptation to spend far more than you can comfortably afford is likely to be rather strong. If you find your will is far weaker than your whims, try to put a lid on it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -You’re likely to find all kinds of flimsy excuses for not taking care of an unpleasant situation. However, if it is something that will have to be resolved eventually, get it done now. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - The charisma that you possess will be quite appealing to members of the opposite gender. However, take care it is not misunderstood and considered flirtatious. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Focus your mind and energy on business matters, and this could turn out to be a profitable day for you. Avoid all pleasurable distractions until after you’ve gotten things squared away. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Although you’ll be exceptionally fast out of the starting block, you aren’t likely to be able to sustain such energy. Take care of all-important matters early in the day. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Because you might not be able to operate as independently as you would like, be careful that an ineffective associate doesn’t dictate the direction important events take.
