still trying to answer some key questions. The investigation “is real basic right now... The big question of why is unanswered.” Few other details of the violence that erupted about 3:45 p.m. were released, but shoppers described how they saw events unfold. Droge also spoke with The Seattle Times. She and Emmili Jones, of Federal Way, 20, told the paper that they noticed two deputies confronting a heavyset man in the parking lot. They said the man began running and pulled out a gun and fired behind his back without turning. The officers were about 30 to 40 feet behind the suspect when he started firing, Ray Bourge told KOMO-TV. “Five or six shots were fired. ... I just went and took cover,” he said. Victor Meyers told the station that he heard the first shot, then six more in rapid succession. “I heard one shot, which I thought was a car backfiring, and then several more reported back, which I knew to be gunfire,” Meyers said. He said he saw a female deputy running toward a victim on the ground before he and other witnesses were hustled from the scene. The store was immediately locked down. Customers in the store were allowed to leave after investigators questioned them, and the store closed for the night, Wilson said. Tacoma police said the deputies were both shot in the torso and were in satisfactory condition. “I’ve seen just the one deputy; he’s in one of the rooms talking with family and coworkers,” said Mark Fulghum of the Tacoma police. “Both of the deputies are going to be fine. They’re going to be kept overnight for observation.”

Life sentence likely for Gimo detainee
By LARRY NEUMEISTER and TOM HAYS The Associated Press NEW YORK — After his capture in the 1998 bombing of a U.S. embassy in Tanzania, Ahmed Ghailani recalled welcoming news reports of the alQaida-sponsored terror attack — until it dawned on him his countrymen were killed. “The target was Americans, not Tanzanians,” Ghailani explained, according to a summary of a lengthy confession. A jury would hear none of it when Ghailani went on trial more than a decade later. With the confession barred from evidence, the trial last year resulted in Ghailani’s conviction on just one count and an acquittal on 284 others in dual attacks in Tanzania and Kenya. But that’s unlikely to stop a judge from giving him the same punishment at sentencing Tuesday as if he’d been convicted of everything: life in prison. The potential for a paradoxical outcome in the closely watched test case points to the difficulties of applying civilian laws and rules of evidence in civil prosecutions of suspects picked up in other countries in the war on terror. It also may dash hopes that the Ghailani case would clear the way for the trials of other Guantanamo detainees captured around the globe in the war on al-Qaida, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the self-professed mastermind of the Sept. 11 terror attacks. The confessions and the testimony of the government’s main witness, a man who would say he sold explosives that were used in the bombs to Ghailani, were kept out of the trial because they were gathered by investigators whose priority was to stop further terrorism attacks rather than gather evidence for a criminal trial. While a military tribunal might not allow evidence that was excluded from Ghailani’s civilian trial either, its exclusion at a high-profile trial could make it harder for the government to argue that most detainees belong in a civilian court at a time when the issue has become politically charged. President Barack Obama continues to say he wants to prosecute terrorists in both military commissions and criminal courts, but Congress has made that difficult. Lawmakers have prohibited the Pentagon from transferring detainees to the U.S., even to stand trial. On the eve of trial, U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan excluded the testimony of the explosives salesman because he was discovered when Ghailani underwent harsh interrogation at an overseas CIA-run camp after his 2004

Police chief IDs Detroit precinct shooter
By COREY WILLIAMS The Associated Press DETROIT — A relative of the gunman who was fatally shot after wounding four officers at a Detroit police station was scheduled to be sentenced today in a double-homicide case, the city’s police chief said. Chief Ralph Godbee identified the shooter as 38-yearold Lamar D. Moore of Detroit, but said he couldn’t speculate about a motive in Sunday’s shooting at the 6th precinct. “There’s nothing in this that makes sense at all,” Godbee told reporters during a briefing on the case. Godbee didn’t release specifics of the homicide case involving Moore’s relative. He said the relative had been scheduled for sentencing today. The police station shooting happened around 4:20 p.m. Sunday. The gunman walked through the front door of the one-story building and began firing, according to police. The precinct commander, two sergeants and an officer suffered wounds that were not
arrest in Pakistan. Prosecutors decided not to use the confessions because Ghailani wasn’t advised of his rights before he spoke to agents and did not have access to a lawyer. The rulings opened the door for a mixed verdict. During deliberations, the jury had indicated it was divided, and Kaplan theorized the guilty verdict on only one count reflected a compromise with a juror who was holding out against conviction. “Thus, if there was any injustice in the jury’s verdict, the victims were the United States and those killed, injured and otherwise devastated by these barbaric acts of terror, not Ghailani,” the judge wrote as he rejected a request by defense lawyers to toss out the lone charge that resulted in Ghailani’s conviction. The judge called the evidence persuasive, citing proof that Ghailani bought one of the bomb-laden trucks, purchased 15 gas cylinders used in the bomb, stored and concealed detonators and sheltered an al-Qaida fugitive prior to the attacks. In court papers, prosecutors agreed. They also cited evidence against Ghailani, including that he delivered hundreds of pounds of TNT to an alQaida cell two months before the bombings along with bags of fertilizer.

Woman who raised NY baby faces kidnap charges
By LARRY NEUMEISTER The Associated Press NEW YORK — A North Carolina woman who raised a child snatched from a New York hospital more than two decades ago was scheduled to appear today in federal court to face kidnapping charges. Ann Pettway surrendered Sunday morning to the FBI and Bridgeport, Conn., police on a warrant from North Carolina, where she’s on probation because of a conviction for attempted embezzlement, FBI supervisory special agent William Reiner said. She turned herself in days after a widely publicized reunion between the child she raised, now an adult, and her biological mother. Carlina White was just 19
considered life-threatening. Commander Brian Davis and one of the sergeants were in stable condition, Godbee said today. The others have been treated and released. Godbee said he has reviewed video of the shooting and seen the officers’ “acts of heroism.” “In a split second their life changed,” Godbee said. “The perpetrators’ intent was evil. But these men and women ... performed to the standard that they were trained to.” Rev. Jerome Warfield, chair of the Detroit Police Board of Commissioners, visited the precinct with other members of the board after leaving the hospital where the wounded officers are being treated. He says officers at the precinct “are still somewhat shocked that this happened.” The shooting left officers to ponder how to protect themselves from the crime they fight daily on the city’s tough streets. Like other precincts in the city, the 6th has no metal detectors at the entrance and visitors are permitted to come in and talk face-to-face with police sitting behind a large, rounded desk.

The couple left the hospital to rest, but their baby was missing when they went back. No suspects were identified. In an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show today, Tyson said he was very happy to have found his daughter, now a 23-year-old adult. “I have my whole puzzle. I have all my four kids now,” he said. But he admitted he didn’t know what he was supposed to be doing with a 23-year old. “Should I be feeding her baby food?” he joked. Tyson said he would like to ask Pettway “why she did this to me for 23 years.”
March 24, 1919-Jan. 21, 2011 Watson N. Ley, 91, of Van Wert, died at 2:30 p.m. Friday at the Van Wert Inpatient Hospice Center. He was born March 24, 1919, in Ridge Township to Phillip J. and Clara (Johnson) Ley. On March 22, 1941, he married Esther Mae Summersett, who survives. Other survivors include son Dr. John C.

Boley of Lima and Gregory (Arleen) Boley of Convoy; great-grandchildren Caden, Jacqueline, London, Bode and Elleanna Ley and Courtney and Andrew Boley. He was preceded in death by two brothers, Eugene F. Ley and Dr. Gordon R. Ley. Mr. Ley was a farmer, a feed salesman and turkey farmer which led to his interest in designing and manufacturing Harvest Hopper Wagons. He started his own company, Ley Equipment Co., in 1952 in Middle Point and later expanded the business and product lines when he moved the business to Van Wert in 1962.

Pastor living in van to bring awareness to homelessness
DAYTON (AP) — When it comes to the important issues of the day, it’s usually easier to relate to one person’s dramatic story than to overwhelming statistics. That was the case recently with golden-voiced Ted Williams, the Columbus man who was living on the streets until a newspaper reporter helped turn him into an overnight sensation. It’s also the idea behind Dayton-area pastor Ryan Riddell’s January journey. The clergyman is hoping to bring awareness to the issue of homelessness this month by sleeping and living in his van on the streets of Dayton instead of in his comfortable Miamisburg home. He seeks shelter from bitter January days at the downtown library or bus hub. According to Joyce Probst MacAlpine, Montgomery County’s manager of housing and homeless solutions, there are about 4,000 homeless in the Dayton area and there was an 11 percent increase in people at local shelters in 2010. It’s the medium that makes Riddell’s experiences unique; he’s using social media to bring home his message in creative new ways. He constantly updates his Web site, tweets and postes on Facebook to let followers know when someone he’s encountered on the streets needs a pair of long johns, overnight housing or a pair of shoes. Riddell, bundled up and unshaven, shares his daily reflections through both video and written blogs, appearing on television and radio to tell his story and to grow his audience. He’s been featured in media outlets ranging from the Huffington Post to ABC. com and was one of Friday’s Intriguing People on CNN’s “This Just In.” He’s racked up 1,000 friends on Facebook and has had 30,000 hits on his web page.

High school sports divisions for tournaments may change
COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio High School Athletic Association has determined a potential change in how schools are assigned to tournament divisions for some sports likely would not move many teams from one division to another, an association spokesman said Saturday. The board of the association is asking its members to vote in May on a bylaw that would put schools into divisions for postseason play based on a new enrollment formula. Instead of putting schools into divisions based only on their enrollment numbers, it would use a three-part system aimed at creating a level playing field between public and private schools. “It is our goal to keep public and nonpublic schools together in the same tournament,” OHSAA spokesman Tim Stried said Saturday, noting that some residents would prefer to separate the two groups of schools and argue that private schools have advantages that can affect their athletic success. The new formula would consider enrollment, along with the socio-economic makeup of a district; where
“I believe that biblically we have a responsibility to cry out and help these people. These folks are so beaten down and so consumed with basic needs such as food and shelter, it’s hard to get out of that hole.”
A minister at Shelter Community Church of the Nazarene in Belmont as well as a realtor for Keller Williams, Riddell, 45, also owns a roofing business in Miamisburg. “I have four reasons for doing this,” he explains. “The first is for my own spiritual renewal. I’m trying to take 30 days to step back from the things I do in the business world and the church.” A second reason, he says, is that “Jesus became like us in order to reach us.” Riddell says the more he gets into the world of the homeless, the more receptive people have been, allowing him to be of help. That help may range from passing out drinks and snacks to locating overnight shelter for someone who has been sleeping in a tent and on the street for months. A growing number of followers, including area church members, are helping him by filling needs as they arise. For example, earlier this week, Riddell was attending a service and meal at Target: Dayton Ministries when an 18-year-old girl named Samantha asked if he could get her a Bible. Within 45 seconds after he’d posted the request on Facebook, someone had offered to drop off Downtown workers. What all the players have in common — beyond sore joints and diminished skills — is a love of the game, a craving for companionship and a stubborn reluctance to yield to the process of aging. “When you’re 12 or 13, you know nothing about pulling muscles,” said Littlejohn, who spends one hour stretching and lifting weights to prepare for court appearances. “I plan to keep on playing until the good Lord takes these knees out.” Trautman, an Upper Arlington resident who has had triple-bypass surgery and a heart-valve replacement, was drafted as a fill-in a dozen years ago while he was jogging around the elevated track surrounding the court. “I told them my last basketball experience was a driveway shoot-around in 1951, but they didn’t care,” said Trautman, who plays in protective goggles and wears a mouthpiece. Despite assessing his skills as marginal — “I can’t dribble or drive, but I can set picks, pass and rebound” — the fitness enthusiast is hooked on the sport for more than the benefits of exercise. “When you’re doing this,” he explained, “you just kind of forget about other things.” Full-court gymnasium basketball, the quintessential team sport in a world of personal trainers and individual exercise routines, is a tie that binds. “I like the camaraderie we have here,” said Rosenberg,

Ohio gas price at average $3.08
Man, 70, hit by train, dies
COLUMBUS (AP) — Gasoline prices are up a nickel this week around Ohio, amid forecasts for much higher prices by the spring. A survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express puts the statewide average cost of regulargrade gas at $3.08 a gallon, up from $3.03 last Monday. Pump prices nationwide have risen nearly 9 percent since the beginning of December, to the highest levels since October 2008. The cost of a gallon of regular may rise or fall a little over the next few months, but analysts expect it to range between $3.20 and $3.75 by March and April ahead of the summer driving season. One year ago, Ohio’s average price was $2.60 a gallon.
Age doesn’t stop older hoops players
COLUMBUS (AP) — At 76, Warner Trautman is having a ball, traveling three days a week and courting old friends. Trautman might be the oldest competitive basketball player in Columbus. On most Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, he can be found playing five-on-five pickup games at the Athletic Club of Columbus. Youngsters are welcome, but most participants in the lunchtime games, which date back decades, are in their 40s and 50s. A lucky few soldier on beyond retirement age. The gatherings — informally called the Legends League — have an old-school, playground feel, with opposing teams identified by shirts and skins and all officiating done by players. Arguments are mandatory. “It’s entertainment,” said lawyer Neil Rosenberg, 56, enjoying a heated discussion over a foul call while waiting his turn on the sidelines. Several blocks from the private club, another group of aging jocks and backyard hoopsters meets at the Downtown YMCA. At 65, West Side retiree Edward Littlejohn reigns as the elder statesman there. The Athletic Club basketball roster trends toward bankers, lawyers and realestate developers; the more egalitarian Y attracts large numbers of public employees and other nonprofessional
the book at St. Vincent’s that night. The same thing happened when Riddell requested a pair of new shoes for a young person who had been wearing the same pair for the past three years. Riddell says he hopes to create an awareness of what’s happening downtown, just minutes from where many members of his congregation reside. “We all hang out at the Oregon District, we socialize, eat, find entertainment, but on the other side of the trestle there’s a semi-tractor trailer and people are sleeping under that on skids with cardboard for insulation,” he says. “I typically drive through there with my windows up and have no awareness of the stuff going on there. I’m trying to live and walk these streets to create an awareness.” Riddell says we all expect our community organizations to “take care of these things.” “I believe that biblically we have a responsibility to cry out and help these people,” he says, adding that many people are quick to insist that the homeless get a job and help themselves. “These folks are so beaten down and so consumed with basic needs such as food and shelter, it’s hard to get out of that hole,” he explains.

Dayton working to remedy lack of diversity in fire department
DAYTON (AP) — An Ohio city is wrapping up an important step in its efforts to racially diversify its fire department in response to U.S. Department of Justice complaints. Dayton is accepting applications for firefighter jobs until today, the Dayton Daily News reported in a story published Sunday. The Justice Department had accused the city of discriminating against blacks in its hiring of firefighters and police officers. Dayton has as estimated 60,000 or more black residents, but just six of the 300 firefighters are black, including Chief Herbert Redden, the newspaper said. Dayton isn’t the only Ohio city that has faced concerns about diversity among emergency responders. Cincinnati also settled a diversity lawsuit with the U.S. Department of Justice, according to the newspaper, which said 250 of 850 Cincinnati firefighters in 2009 were black. “I think (diversity) is impor-
and how a school gets its students; and whether teams have advanced to regional or state tournaments in recent years. It would take effect by the 201314 school year and cover eight sports: football, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, volleyball, baseball and softball. A committee that studied how to balance the field of competition used different mixes of data in those categories to test the formula. Hundreds of teams participate in each sport, but in most cases, the committee found fewer than a dozen or so schools in each division likely would move to a higher or lower division if the change is approved, Stried said. The number of divisions varies from two to six, depending on the sport. “Some of the tests we ran with the formula in all the sports indicated that, with all three criteria being considered, there won’t be as much movement as we anticipated,” commissioner Dan Ross told The Columbus Dispatch for a story published Saturday. “This is a good thing, because with this plan just being a starting point, we didn’t want total chaos in Ohio.”
Trial to begin in fire deaths of 9
CLEVELAND (AP) — Prosecutors in Ohio are ready to outline the case against a man charged in the 2005 arson deaths of nine, including eight children at a birthday sleepover. Opening arguments are scheduled in the trial this afternoon after jurors visit the fire scene in Cleveland. The defendant, 27-yearold ex-convict Antun Lewis, has pleaded not guilty. He says he was at home several blocks away when the fire broke before dawn. Lewis’ attorneys won a crucial decision last month when the federal judge ruled out the death penalty because Lewis is mentally disabled.
tant because we need to reflect the community we serve,” Michael Spencer, one of the Dayton’s black firefighters, told the Dayton Daily News. The government’s lawsuit had alleged that the city’s use of heightened qualifications for firefighters and a written police officer examination have resulted in employment discrimination against blacks. Dayton has revamped its recruiting and hiring process as a result of the lawsuit, making changes that should open the process to more candidates. The city no longer has a residency rule, and it has stopped requiring that applicants be certified firefighters. The application deadline marks a step toward the city determining how effective that overhaul will be. The Justice Department will review the applications and the results of an April civil service exam before the city can hire firefighters. It could be more than a year before a new firefighter class is in operation.
Lewis could face life in prison if convicted.
December 25, 2010 MESSAGE TO THE WORLD of the Blessed Virgin Mary
MARION (AP) — Ohio police say a 70-year-old Marion man walking on railroad tracks near his home was hit by a train and died. Marion police say Jerry Billups was hit by a train Sunday night at the Kenton Avenue crossing. He was pronounced dead at Marion General Hospital. Lt. Matt Bayles tells The Columbus Dispatch that the train’s crew spotted Billups on the tracks and blew a horn to warn him. Bayles says crossing gates were functioning properly. He says Billups lived two blocks away from where he was struck. Billups’ body was sent to the Franklin County coroner’s office for an autopsy. Police are investigating. Marion is about 40 miles north of Columbus. James J. Ritty, of Dayton, invented the cash register in 1879 to stop his patrons from pilfering house profits.
“Dear children! Today, I and my Son desire to give you an abundance of joy and peace so that each of you may be a joyful carrier and witness of peace and joy in the places where you live. Little children, be a blessing and be at peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

“The most fatal illusion is the settled point of view. Since life is growth and motion, a fixed point of view kills anybody who has one.” — Brooks Atkinson, American drama critic (1894-1984)
American wish list on eve of Obama’s speech
By CALVIN WOODWARD Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Health care is Shannon Taylor’s “big, big hot button” and no wonder. She is a nurse in Tennessee who examines hospital bills for a health insurance company, and a mother who saw President Barack Obama’s health care law come just in time for her family. In the State of the Union speech Tuesday night, she will be looking for Obama to stand firm against Republicans who want to take the law apart. Health insurance for her daughter, who has lifetime medical problems, could hang in the balance. Many other Americans feel a personal stake in what Obama will say Tuesday and do later — and what Republicans do in response. The hunger for jobs and economic growth stood out in interviews with more than 1,000 people, part of an Associated Press-GfK poll asking Americans what one thing they most want the government to accomplish this year. It is apparent, too, that health care is still very much on people’s minds, that spending has reached frightening proportions for many and that a notable share of Americans wants nothing more than to see partisan bickering end. In upstate New York, Donald Dixon puts his faith in Republicans to restrain Democratic spending and bring By DAVID ESPO Associated Press down a debt that he believes makes every economic problem worse — and robs his grandsons, each with a master’s degree, of good jobs. It’s enough to make the retired Baptist preacher invoke the fire and brimstone rhetoric of the pulpit, even as he renders his judgment in a cheerful tone. Obama “tells us we are going in the right direction,” Dixon says, “which to me is over the precipice of hell.” It falls upon presidents to describe the state of the union when much of that union is in the depths of winter’s gloom. The polling revealed a season of discontent; also some stirrings of hope. More than half disapproved of Obama’s handling of the economy and just more than one-third said it has improved in his first two years. Still, he’s considered likable, strong and in touch. Altogether, 38 percent cited the economy or an economic issue when asked what they would most like to see the government accomplish this year. Fully 31 percent said health care is the No. 1 issue to tackle — regardless of whether they favor or oppose the law — and 21 percent cited the budget. Among economic concerns, jobs topped the list. Dixon believes the debt already weighs on job creation and economic growth and it will take a decade to turn that around. The Republicans, he says, are off to a good start on that front. the Senate’s filibuster rules, which allow the minority party — Republicans now — to slow or defeat nominations and legislation without allowing a yes-or-no vote. Given a lack of support among Republicans and past opposition from some Democrats, these broader proposals appear to have little or no chance of winning the two-thirds majority the Senate’s rules say are generally required to take effect. Advocates of the revisions argue that a simple majority vote is sufficient to put them in place at the beginning of a new Congress, as they want to do. But it is not clear they can command that much support in an institution where Democrats and aligned independents control 53 seats, to 47 for the Republicans. The Senate returns to work Tuesday for the first time in two weeks; the proposed rules changes are among the first orders of business. The talks between Schumer and Alexander were set in motion by agreement between the two parties’ top senators, Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch

OMG, as we mutter quietly to ourselves. Heaven forbid we should say something offensive or slightly provocative, or, gasp, use a metaphor that slips the grasp of the mentally challenged.

Tea partiers say defense in mix for budget cuts
Senators seek deal on nomination rules
WASHINGTON — Senior senators are negotiating to reduce the 1,400 presidential appointments subject to timeconsuming Senate confirmation, hoping to streamline a system that has frustrated administrations of both parties, according to officials familiar with the discussions. These officials said that 100 posts or more could be dropped from the list if discussions between Sens. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., result in an agreement that gains support of the rank and file in both parties. Judicial appointments would not be affected, nor would the most senior positions at Cabinet department or independent agencies. In addition, the two men have discussed curtailing the right enjoyed by individual senators to block action on a nomination or legislation anonymously for up to five days. This rule is widely flouted. The talks are occurring against a backdrop of calls from some Democrats for far more sweeping changes in
His grandsons have master’s degrees in education and business, and neither is able to get a job in his discipline. The one with the MBA lives with relatives and recently welcomed a baby. “He’s been painting houses,” Dixon, 74, said from Little Falls, N.Y. “Wintertime up here, you don’t do much painting.” Debt is also a concern of those young enough to inherit its growing weight down the road. It’s what Eric Tolbert, 19, a Purdue University student from West Lafayette, Ind., most wants the government to fix. “I think it will be all talk at first,” he says of the promises to cut spending. “But we may see more progress in a year or two.” Says James Lenoir, 41, an Aberdeen, Miss., car salesman: “The economy is in a bad fix. Job creation is one of the most important things the country needs. There has been progress but not enough, fast enough.” Can the parties work together? Lenoir glumly predicts not. “On most issues, it’s going to be gridlock.” Health care plays out in public opinion in ways as complicated as the law itself. Angie Wyatt, 46, an Alexandria, Ky., middle school teacher and mother of six, calls for the law to be repealed because “I don’t like government control.” But she does like one of its principal elements: the government’s prohibition on denying health insurance to people who have been sick.
Outrage has become an American industry
McConnell, R-Ky. In a scripted back and forth the day the Senate convened for the year, Reid said, “In the vast majority of instances, the individuals nominated by the president are not controversial, but many have faced delays before assuming their positions. These delays mean critical decision makers are not in place. And the delays make it harder to find qualified people — many great nominees simply cannot wait around for months as the stress and uncertainty affects their families.” McConnell said the number of nominees subject to confirmation has grown significantly. He added, “I look forward to working with the majority leader and my colleagues in the coming weeks as we finalize this proposal.” The Constitution gives the Senate the power to confirm nominees, and the list of positions subject to approval has grown sharply in recent decades. One recent study said the number of core policy positions has risen from 295 in 1981 when President Ronald Reagan took office to 422 when President Obama arrived at the White House.
sensitivity-on-command that deserves our attention. Every now and then a public person is going to say or do something regrettable. I am beyond certain that our most beloved leaders were imperfect and must have said something inexact, without proper forethought or prescience. Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and Franklin Roosevelt, among other notables, would be deeply-grateful that they avoided these hyper-observant times. Clearly, leaders are held to a higher standard and should be guardians of the light. Or, as the French philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy recently put it with passionate precision: “We are guardians of ze words!” But human beings are not built for perfection nor for constant scrutiny. We need time alone in our caves to reflect and imagine. We also need to be able to express our thoughts without fear of instant condemnation, granted time to reshuffle and regret, time to say, hey, I was wrong about that. Perhaps most of all, we need space to think more and talk less. While we ponder that concept, at least we should hoard our outrage for the truly outrageous and our disdain for the truly hateful.
Point of View
instability is not in doubt, thus has been connected to Palin. This history is well-known so there’s no need to rehash, but the debate about words and consequences shouldn’t end there. Palin reacted as she always does when criticized “I am not going to sit down. I’m not going to shut up,” which we know to be literally true but she is surely justified in rejecting blame for a crime committed by a stranger, who, as far as anyone knows, has no affinity for Palin or any other human. Her unrelated instructions to her minions “Don’t Retreat, Instead RELOAD!” sound utterly appalling in light of what happened, but everyone knows Palin wasn’t urging violence. She’s an outdoorsy kind of gal who has made shtick out of her oneness with nature. When she uses the language of hunting and shooting, she isn’t speaking code to killers. She’s dog whistling to Ted Nugent and other Second Amendment comrades. You want real trouble in
free speechery? Suggest that someone is Hitler-esque or a Nazi, as Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen recently did. Cohen was trying to make the case that, in his view, Republicans have created untruths about health care reform that have become credible through repetition. Inartfully, he paraphrased a quotation often attributed to Joseph Goebbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” Cohen should have remembered the famous quip that a lie travels halfway around the world while truth is still putting on its boots. A feather is better than a cudgel if you want to change people’s minds as opposed to rearranging their skulls. For my two cents, anyone who invokes Hitler or Nazis should be disqualified from public debate for muddled thinking and lack of originality but the outrage that inevitably follows any utterance that displeases anyone’s ear these days has become disproportionate to the offense. This is partly a function of our Twitter-driven culture and the incessant replay of every fleeting thought not to mention the ravenous appetite of the media beast but it’s also partly owing to a creeping tide of speech monitoring and

Late fielder sinks Blue Jays Lady Green
By JIM METCALFE
DELPHOS — St. John’s boys basketball coach Aaron Elwer knew Saturday night’s encounter with Edgerton at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium was going to be a battle. His Blue Jays had lost two games in a row in heartbreaking fashion, including Friday night’s 2-OT loss at Marion Local. Plus, sophomore Curtis Geise, the Jays’ top scorer at 14 points per game, was out with illness. His prediction came true as Edgerton’s Spencer Hastedt hit his only basket of the night, a 3-ball with 6.1 ticks to go, and the Jays missed a pair of shots in the lane as time expired to fall 37-36. The Jays had overcome a 2-point first period to lead 30-28 entering the fourth period. With the Bulldogs (8-2) securely tucked in their 3--2 zone defense — as they had all night — Elwer decided to pull the ball out and shorten the game, dribbling away the first two minutes or so. However, a turnover (4 in the period, 15 for the night, versus 14 for the visitors) ended that stratagem. Brody Flegal (7 boards, 4 assists) knocked down a pair of free throws to tie it at 30 at 4:51. Derek Klaus (6 boards) hit 1-of-2 free throws for the Jays (3-8), as did Ben Riehle (19 counters) for the visitors, to knot it at 31 at 2:35. Senior Tyler Bergfeld (5 caroms, 3 thefts) drove for a deuce for the Jays at 2:20 and hit two throws at 46.5 ticks around a single by Bill Radabaugh (5 points) for a 35-32 edge. After a pair of timeouts, Flegal hit a putback with 21 ticks left to get the visitors within one. After their final timeout, they fouled senior Scott Klausing, who went to the line for two with 19 ticks showing. He hit the first and missed the second, with Hastedt getting the carom. With time running down, Flegal kicked a cross-count pass to Hastedt on the left

the Green found themselves in a 21-4 hole late into the first quarter thanks in part to the Robbie Rucki’s 14 firstquarter points, drilling four from beyond the arc. However, Ottoville responded by outscoring L-B in the second stanza 19-7. In the end, though, the Big Green effort fell just short as

they dropped a 50-48 decision in an exhilarating finish. The visitors battled back to take their first lead of the game on a Nate Turnwald (16 points) bucket with 7:19 to go. The Eagles got the lead back moments later only to have Ottoville take it right back as Scott Pohlman hit three of his game-high 22 points with a long ball from the top of the key, making it a 44-42 contest. Rucki connected on a clutch long ball to give the hosts a 1-point advantage at 45-44 with just under two minutes left.
The last 30 seconds would be a dandy. Zac Cramer (12 markers) delivered for the Eagles with both ends of a 2-shot foul, answered by two for Pohlman.

OTTOVILLE — A Division IV girls heavyweight basketball bout took place on the court of L.W. Heckman Gymnasium in Ottoville Saturday afternoon. At least for a half. Host Ottoville — ranked seventh — took control of its matchup with second-ranked Minster with an 18-8 third period and rolled up a 49-36 triumph in nonleague action. “This is a big win. We schedule good teams like Minster and Bath to toughen ourselves up,” Ottoville mentor Dave Kleman noted. “We did beat them by 13 last year at their place but last year is gone. My wife is actually the barometer of our team. Early on, she told me we weren’t playing well and we weren’t. Lately, she has told me we really seem to be clicking in a lot of ways and we are.” As has become the standardbearer for the Lady Big Green under mentor Dave Kleman, defense was the key for this outcome. The Lady Green (131) held the previously-unbeaten Wildcats (13-1) to 27.5-percent shooting (14-of-51, 5-of-17 long range) and controlled the free-throw shooting 13-of-20 (65%) versus 3-of-6 (50%) for the Wildcats. “We won this because of defense. The girls did a nice job shutting them down and not letting them get on any runs,” Kleman continued. “Abby (Siefker) is a big reason inside. If she’s not blocking shots, she’s altering them. That enables us to extend farther out defensively and we can be more aggressive.” After securing a 16-15 halftime edge, the Green and Gold scored the first seven points of the third period to snag a 22-15 edge, with the 6-2 sophomore Siefker (15 boards, 10 points, 6 blocked shots; outplaying Minster’s 6-2 Tara Clune) scoring four. Erica Fullenkamp (12 counters) drove for a deuce for the visitors with 4:14 showing to get them on the board but Ottoville replied with a 6-0 spurt to get the largest lead to that time of 28-20 on a basket by senior Tasha Kaufman (13 counters). Fullenkamp and Kayla Albers drilled 3s around a triple by senior Kari Beining (13 markers) but she had the last laugh — a trifecta from the left wing with 3.1 ticks on the board for a 34-23 edge. Minster had no choice but to start firing away in the
fourth period and extend its defense in an effort to get back in the game. However, the hosts made that a moot point when they started the finale with a 9-2 span to grab the largest lead of 43-25 on a Beining triple with 5:35 left. The closest the visitors could get was 13. Defense from both sides ruled the first half. The units combined for 4-of-23 shooting and when Maria Dahlinghaus hit a transition layin with 3.1 seconds left, the Lady Green’s lead was down to 7-5. Ottoville built a 13-6 edge in the second period on a Siefker basket at 5:30. Back came the Wildcats with a 7-0 spurt to net a 13-all tie on a putback by Delanie Wolf (6 boards). The teams traded baskets before Megan Bendele hit the second-of-2 throws with three ticks left for a 16-15 halftime score. Minster ended up with 35 boards (16 offensive) as Albers and Clune added five each. They totaled 12 errors and 14 fouls. Ottoville canned 16-of-43 shots (4-of-10 downtown) for 37.2 percent. They grabbed 34 caroms (11 offensive) as Kaufman added six. They added 11 miscues and eight fouls and visit Fort Jennings Thursday. In JV action, Minster moved to 13-1 with a 33-26 win. Kayla Richard netted nine for the guests, while Rachel Beining tallied seven for the Lady Green (11-3).

Tigers use press, 3s to down Bearcats 75-47
By Kirk Dougal Times Bulletin Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
WAYNESFIELD — The Lady Bearcats traveled to Waynesfield on Saturday and ran into the Tiger trio Shelby Gilroy, Kaylee Patton and Ivy Horn - who led the home team to a 75-47 win over Spencerville. The first quarter stayed close as both teams were able to score and run their offenses but Waynesfield-Goshen threw on withering full-court pressure in the second that completely took Spencerville out of its game plan. “We had trouble handling their pressure,” said Bearcat coach Katie Fisher. “If we could get half-court offense, we did a good job. The press got us out of our game and we couldn’t get the ball down the floor. Today, we were asleep. After that first half, I didn’t think we did anything right.” The Tigers forced 17 first-half Spencerville turnovers which continually led to runouts and easy buckets. When W-G couldn’t score immediately, they were able to kick the ball back outside for 3-pointers. Gilroy was the main beneficiary there as the little guard made seven treys - a new Lady Tigers’ record for one game - on the way to her game-high 26 points. Patton (18 points) also took advantage by going to the foul line on fast-break drives, hitting 9-of-12 for the day from there. After trailing by only three points after one quarter, 16-13, Spencerville’s turnovers against the press put the game

out of reach as W-G scored 33 points in the second quarter to only 12 for the visitors. Spencerville played much better in the second half, although both teams struggled with foul trouble for the rest of the game. “Turnovers, we couldn’t rebound - it’s details we are still trying to figure out,” continued Fisher. “We’ve got to box out, we’ve got to rebound or we can’t win games. We can’t have that many turnovers - I thought we were past that hump.” Spencerville was led by Alyssa Muhlholland’s 13 points. The Bearcats made 18-of-52 attempts from the field for 35 percent — 3-of18 (16.7%) beyond the arc. Spencerville was 8-of-17 from the free-throw line (47%). Horn added 17 for the Tigers, who were 24-of-64 from the field for 38 percent, including 8-of-24 (33.3%) from 3-point land. The home team also shot well from the line, 19-of-29 for (66%). W-G won the battle of the boards 37-31 and turnovers 16-28. With the win, W-G goes to 9-3; Spencerville falls to 4-9. They visit Jefferson Thursday.

Delphos scored the first seven points of the second half (Reindel’s elbow shot, Jessica Recker’s three from the left wing, Stant’s 17-footer from the right wing) to give the blue and gold its biggest lead at 28-10. Preston hit two free throws, which were trumped by Geise’s 15-foot baseliner for a 30-12 scoreboard. Crestview gave it one last shot, though, going on a 10-0 run, sandwiched around the third-quarter break, to pull within 30-22. Those points came on a corner trey by Burger, an old-style three by freshman Kirstin Hicks, a baseliner by MacKenzie Richard and two Preston free throws with 4:18 left in the game. That livened up the home crowd considerably but St. John’s Katie Vorst put a stop to that by forcing her way inside to can an 8-footer and the ensuing free throw to make it 33-22. Burger hit two freebies at the 3:18 mark to pull within nine but Crestview was then forced to send the Jays to the line where they cashed in 7-of-8 to end any hopes of a successful Knight comeback. “They (the Blue Jays) knew that (the inside game) was our strength coming in,” said Crestview coach Greg Rickard. “They did a good job on that. Shots were at a premium. We told the girls at the half if you get an open shot, you’re going to have to take it because you’re not going to get a lot of opportunities. At least in the second half, we got a few more shots, even if we didn’t shoot the

Preston and Burger had 8 and 7 for Crestview. “Coach Rickard does a great job defensively,” said Grothouse. “We always know when we come over here we’ll have a tough time getting any offensive flow. It was no different tonight. I thought when it got tough, we made good decisions.

Long ball propels Spencerville over Perry
3-pointers in the first half of action and 13 for the entire game versus Perry Saturday night at the Walk-In Closet. This shooting display was too much for the visiting Commodores to handle in a 61-50 victory for the Bearcats. Perry’s zone defense was barely effective against the Bearcat guards as they moved the ball very effectively to get the open shot. One point was the difference between Perry and Spencerville after the first eight minutes of the contest with Spencerville on top 18-17. Spencerville’s points all came from the 3-point line (6 treys) with Kevin Lenhart making three in the first quarter. Perry was giving them every shot that they wanted on the perimeter and tried to make the Bearcats beat them from the outside. The second quarter was very similar to the first as the Bearcats added four more 3-pointers and jumped out to an 8-point lead going into intermission. The Bearcats started to take the tempo of the game into their own hands as their run-and-gun style of play seemed to be wearing down the Commodores. Kevontae Steele led Perry on the night with 23 points, including six 3-pointers of his own. Malcolum Glenn added 16 points. Spencerville came out of the locker room and looked like a more complete team as they were not relying too heavily on the 3-point shot to get their points. They worked the ball into the post and made moves to the bucket to slice and dice their way to score. They added three more treys in the second half. Lenhart had a big game for the home team with 19 points, including five 3-pointers. Cole

Spencerville head coach Kevin Sensabaugh thought that his team played very well Saturday night: “We shot the ball very well tonight and our kids played very hard and aggressive. I wasn’t even aware of how many 3-pointers we had on the night; I just told our kids to keep shooting the ball and take what they gave us.” The Bearcats improved to 8-3 on the season and host Jefferson Friday.

All the Eagles had to do was inbound the ball and for all intense and purposes, the game would be over. However, this type of game wasn’t meant to end like that as the Eagles’ inbound pass went too long and out of bounds 90 feet away, giving the Green one more chance under their own basket. It wasn’t meant to be for Ottoville as a scramble on the inbound pass prevented a shot attempt, allowing the Eagles to escape with the 2-point win. Twenty four minutes before all of the dramatics of the finale, no one figured the outcome would have been the way it played out. Ottoville
hit just 2-of-8 shots in the first eight minutes and trailed 21-6 after the first period. Conversely, just as Rucki lit up the scoreboard in the first, the Green found their mark in the second on the strength of Pohlman, Turnwald and Jared Byrne (6 points); the three combined for five long balls and all 19 of the Big Green’s 19 points in the stanza. The 16-0 Liberty-Benton streak to start the game was all but a vapor as the Green was right back into the contest, trailing by a mere three points at the half. Pohlman and Turnwald helped the visitors keep pace in the third and a sniffling Ottoville defense held Rucki to just one field goal in the quarter and just two baskets from the field in the final two quarters. Ottoville shot 16-of-36
from the field and 8-of-12 from the stripe; the Eagles connected on 18-of-31 attempts and 5-of-7 from the line. The loss brings the Big Green record to 6-6; next up is a home matchup with Paulding Saturday, LibertyBenton improves to 7-5 on the season. In the JV contest, Ottoville fought off a comeback attempt by their hosts to capture a 39-36 victory.

Northeast smacked by bitter cold
NEW YORK (AP) — Bone-chilling cold has prompted schools around the Northeast to delay openings and some canceled classes altogether today. The cold snap was linked to at least two weekend deaths, including that of a woman whose frozen body was found in a driveway. Schools in western and northeastern Pennsylvania, across upstate New York and parts of Vermont and New Hampshire closed their doors or delayed openings to protect students from temperatures that dropped in some locations as low as 25 degrees below zero or even colder. The wind chill in some areas of New England was expected to make it feel as cold as 50 degrees below zero. In Montpelier, Vt., it was 21 below at 7 a.m. “Snot-freezing cold,” was how Kelly Walsh, 28, described it, walking home from an auto parts store after buying a new battery for her car, which wouldn’t start this morning. “I usually really like it. Today is a bit of nuisance,” she said. Others agreed. Will Forest, a 53-year-old web designer who was walking to work, called the cold “indescribable.” “I spent the summer in Dallas, Texas, and you can only experience the heat when you’re there,” he said. “Trying to explain it to people here is impossible. Conversely, this kind of cold, to try to explain to someone down there, you have to experience it. But it’s also a really good filter, because if we didn’t have this cold, everybody would want to live here and it wouldn’t be the place it is.” What did he wear to prepare? “I put on two socks, a fleece and a desire to move very quickly.” The Arctic temperatures were blamed for two deaths over the weekend. About 90 miles northwest of Philadelphia, a man died after spending the night in his car in frigid temperatures in Lansford, and his wife found him Saturday morning. Temperatures had dropped into the single digits overnight, but it’s unclear why 49-year-old Alan Kurtz had slept in his car. In North Haven, Conn., a woman’s frozen body was found in a home’s driveway Sunday morning after a neighbor called police. Denise O’Hara apparently fell in a driveway and froze to death Saturday night, when temperatures were close to zero, police said. In upstate New York, the National Weather Service

issued wind chill advisories and warnings for much of the region today, including the Adirondacks where the low was 36 below in Saranac Lake early today morning. Wind chill advisories were issued for much of western New York, and forecasters in some northern areas said it felt like 40 below with the wind chill. Layered clothing was the order of the day around New Jersey as temperatures dropped to single digits or below zero. In Newark, N.J., the wind chill made it feel like four below zero. The National Weather Service predicted a high of 20 in New York City, but no problems were reported at New York City’s LaGuardia and Kennedy airports early this morning. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said it took extra steps overnight to ensure that its commuter trains and subways and buses would run without problems for the morning rush. Extra crews checked on signals and switches and deicer and scraper trains were run to ensure ice did not build up on the rails. Some subway trains were stored underground and buses were checked for any equipment problems. The thermometer was at minus-6 degrees around 6 a.m. in Mt. Pocono, in eastern Pennsylvania. Subzero temperatures were also recorded in western Pennsylvania, where the National Weather Service issued an advisory over wind chills as low as 20 degrees below zero. In Philadelphia, a group of determined parents waited on a sidewalk overnight to enroll their children in kindergarten at a prestigious school run in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania. The Penn Alexander School eventually opened its doors, letting the parents in from the cold. In Pittsburgh, where the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the New York Jets in the NFL playoffs Sunday evening, the temperature was about 13 degrees at game time.

Dear Annie: I have been married to “Chester” for 10 years. For the past eight, he has avoided sex. We are both in our late 40s, and Chester’s health problems make performing in the bedroom nearly impossible. Consequently, he refuses to so much as touch me for fear I might expect more. Chester won’t ask his doctor about it, which isn’t fair to me. I have stayed with him because I still love him. I try to ignore the lack of intimacy, but I’m not sure how much longer I can do it. Any
Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011 Don’t be surprised if some powerful ambitions that will inspire you to work toward greater material accumulation are awakened during the coming months. Don’t give up too easily, and a substantial amount of your desires could be fulfilled. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Getting along well with others could simply be a reflexive action. Instinctively you’ll know how to charm and impress everybody you encounter, be they friend or stranger. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - A wonderful, loyal friend who is aware of your troubles will help diminish your problems. Don’t try to stop him/ her or get in the way. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - Find the right person to help you achieve a goal if you cannot reach it on your own. Don’t ask just anybody; it must be someone who understands what you’re trying to accomplish. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - The secret to your success is your ability to establish a partnership arrangement with a kindred spirit whose ideas and philosophies are compatible to yours. It works every time. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Because friends and/or associates appreciate your style and demeanor so much, they are likely to want to emulate your way of doing things. Be willing to serve in any way that you can. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your actions shouldn’t be based solely on material goals. The real worth of your involvements needs to stem from activities of an intangible nature.
