Sarah Jane to host dementia seminar
City rounding off snow removal
BY MIKE FORD firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — Having piled much of this week’s snowfall in the middle of many streets, maintenance crews have now relocated most of it. Depending on where the white partitions were created determined where it was trucked to. Safety Service Director Greg Berquist said some of the wintry mix ended up near the Herald office and the parks but most was moved to an empty lot near the railroad tracks. “The city owns a lot on Franklin Street near the bridge just across the railroad tracks and we pile a lot of it up down there,” he said. “We take it in a big dump truck and we also take some to the parks, depending on where we’re hauling it from. Sometimes, we get more snow than expected and start to run out of places to put it. We didn’t

put salt on the roads, so some of it gets thrown in the canal. We have to just put it where we can,” he said. Areas to the north received much more snow than did the Tri-County. Because the area only got 2-3 inches of snow and sleet, the commitment to keeping residents safe brought high reward. “We did really well. Comparatively speaking, I was in some other cities in the last couple of days and, while we’re basically ready for the next snow event, other municipalities are still cleaning up from this one. We had everyone who can operate equipment out there — coming in at 2 a.m. and working 12-14-hour shifts. Nobody likes doing that but I compliment the staff for not complaining or grumbling. They came in and did what needed to be done. In Delphos, that’s Stacy Taff photo just what we do; we do what needs to be done to take care A city worker moves snow around at a drop-off point off South Franklin Street of community,” he said.

Cabin fever, smabin fever
Our little neck of the woods lays frozen under ice and snow and there could be more to come. Yeah. We have a spot in our back yard that could use a little more; it’s a little lower than the rest. This has been quite the week. First came the snow - then sleet. Of course, it could have been worse. If even a tenth of what we got was ice or freezing rain we would have been in a world of hurt. Nothing says February in Ohio like a power outage with negative wind chills. We at The Delphos Herald mustered in each day appreciative we didn’t live somewhere else that was marking its third-or-more foot of snow for the season. As we dug ourselves out, the sun broke through on Thursday and made the roadways a little safer and the bitter cold a little more bearable. This is the kind of weather that makes some people restless. At least one day there was nowhere to go even if you had the urge. Most school kids were probably wishing for more. Who didn’t enjoy a nice, unexpected break from school when they were younger? Many of us made it through the Blizzard of 78 with tales to tell and solid week or so of uninterrupted playtime. Mom tells that my father lasted less than 24 hours before the cabin fever overtook him and he ventured outside to see what was going on. Cabin fever - the intense need to escape one’s current abode and get outside and do … whatever. I think I will try to come down with cabin fever this weekend. I have a hard time imagining spending so much time in the house I have BONINSEGNA, Carmela Angelia “Angel,” 19, of rural St. Marys, funeral services begin at 10:30 a.m. today at Living Hope Assembly of God, 1130 Indian Avenue in St. Marys, Pastor Randy McKinney officiating.

to get out. I walk a dog at least 7-9 times a day and my car leaves the garage at least twice. As I look back, I don’t think I’ve ever caught the bug that drives one outside because they just can’t stand to be indoors any longer. So, that’s my goal this weekend. I’m going to hang around the house until I just can’t take it anymore. I’m going to exhaust myself with reading, watching “idiot” TV and doing just lain nothing. I’ve thought this out carefully. I did the majority of my cleaning on Friday and just have a few loose ends to tie up the rest of the weekend. Then I’m going to settle in with the latest Eve Dallas book and see if I can drive myself crazy with the yearning to run outside screaming because I can’t take it anymore. Seriously, that’s not going to happen. I don’t know how long it takes to get cabin fever because I’ve never had it but I’m guessing it takes some of us longer than others. More often than not, I’m running into the house screaming because I don’t get to spend enough time there. Cabin fever, smabin fever. I dare the virus or bug or whatever it is to get me. It knows where to find me; I’ll be the one in the cabin.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — As the chief courier of a California-to-Ohio marijuana shipping scheme pleaded guilty Friday, prosecutors said the investigation continued into other possible suspects in the plot that brought hundreds of pounds of marijuana hidden in suitcases to Ohio on private jets. Authorities say Lisette Lee was the primary courier for a scheme that distributed about 7,000 pounds of the drug and made more than $3 million from November 2009 through April. “Obviously other people were involved in the case,” assistant U.S. attorney Tim Pritchard said after Lee pleaded guilty. “We’re continuing to look as we were from the first day.” Lee, 29, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute more than 2,000 pounds of marijuana. She faces 10 years to life, though under federal sentencing rules she’s likely to receive the lower sentence. Frank Edwards, of Hacienda, Calif., was among five others arrested in the case. He pleaded guilty Friday to a similar charge involving more than 200 pounds of pot. He faces five to 40 years in prison, but also is not expected to receive the longest term.

A Spanish-language Retirement Estimator also is available at www.segurosocial.gov/calculador. Get an instant, personalized estimate of your future benefits now at www.socialsecurity.gov/ estimator. SUPPLEMENTAL SECURITY INCOME Question: How do I report a change of address if I’m on Supplemental Security Income (SSI)? Answer: You must report any change of address by calling our toll-free number, 1-800772-1213, or by visiting a local office within 10 days after the month the change occurs. You cannot complete a change of address online because we must obtain more specific information about the change in your living arrangement. Failure to report or filing false reports could result in a fine, imprisonment, or both. Even if you receive your benefits by direct deposit, you need to report your new address to Social Security so that you can continue to receive mail from Social Security when necessary. To learn more about SSI reporting responsibilities, read the publication What You Need To Know When You Get Supplemental Security Income (SSI) at www.socialsecurity.gov/ pubs/11011.html. Question: Is Supplemental Security Income (SSI) taxable? Answer: No. SSI payments are not subject to Federal taxes so you will not receive an annual form SSA-1099. However, if you also receive Social Security retirement or disability benefits, those payments may be subject to income taxes. Learn more about SSI by reading the publication What You Need To Know When You Get Supplemental Security Income (SSI) at www.socialsecurity.gov/ pubs/11011.html. DISABILITY Question: How does a blind or visually impaired person choose how Social Security communicates with them about changes or important information? Answer: If you are blind or visually impaired, you have choices for receiving information from Social Security. To sign up or change these notice options, contact us through one of the following ways: Go to our page, If You Are Blind Or Visually Impaired— Your Choices For Receiving Information from Social Security at www.socialsecurity.gov/notices; Call us toll-free at 1-877708-1776 (TTY 1-800-3250778); Contact your local Social Security office; or Contact the U.S. Embassy or Consulate if you live outside the United States. The fastest and easiest way to learn about and sign up for these options is at www. socialsecurity.gov/notices. Question: What is a disability trial work period? Answer: The “trial work period” allows Social Security disability beneficiaries to test their ability to work for at least nine months without losing benefits. During the trial work period, you can receive full benefits no matter how much you earn, as long as you remain disabled and you report your work activity. The trial work period continues until you have completed nine trial work months within a 60-month period. You can find more information about available work incentives in our publication Working While Disabled—How We Can Help at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10095.html. MEDICARE Question: What are the four parts of Medicare? Answer: The four parts of Medicare include: — Hospital insurance (Part A), which helps pay hospital bills and some follow-up care. The taxes you (or your spouse in some cases) paid while working financed this coverage, so it’s premium free. For those who are not “insured,” coverage may be purchased. —Medical insurance (Part B), which helps pay doctors’ bills and other services. There is a monthly premium you must pay for Medicare Part B and you may refuse this coverage. — Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans, which generally cover many of the same benefits a Medigap policy would cover, such as extra days in the hospital after you have used the number of days Medicare covers. People with Medicare Parts A and B can choose to receive all of their health care services through one of these provider organizations under Part C. There might be additional premiums required for some plans; and — Prescription drug coverage (Part D), which helps pay for medications doctors prescribe for treatment. Anyone who has Medicare hospital insurance (Part A), medical insurance (Part B), or a Medicare Advantage plan (Part C) is eligible for prescription drug coverage (Part D). Joining a Medicare prescription drug plan is voluntary and you pay an additional monthly premium for the coverage. To learn more about Medicare benefits, read
our publication, Medicare, at www.socialsecurity.gov/ pubs/10043.html. Question: I can’t get health insurance because of my pre-existing condition. Is there anything I can do? Answer: You may be eligible for the new Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan — a program for people who have a pre-existing condition and have been without health insurance coverage for at least six months. For more information, call the PreExisting Condition Insurance Plan toll-free: 1-866-7175826 (TTY 1-866-561-1604) between the hours of 8 a.m. and 11 p.m. Eastern Time. Or visit www.pcip.gov and select “Find Your State” to learn about eligibility and how to apply.
CANTON (AP) — One of the power companies hit hardest by this week’s Ohio ice storm says it expects to make slower progress toward restoring service. American Electric Power explained in a statement Friday that many of its remaining outages are scattered and isolated. More than 27,000 Ohio homes and businesses remain without power from this week’s ice, which resulted in damage to power lines. The number includes about 12,000 AEP customers in northeast Ohio’s Stark County, which includes Canton. Ohio Gov. John Kasich visited storm victims sheltered in Canton Thursday night and told them they should be “good to go” with power again this weekend. AEP says it expects to have all service restored by late today.
Man found guilty of murder called in by child
DAYTON (AP) — An Ohio man has been found guilty of killing a woman whose 5-year-old son called 911 saying his mother was dead and begging for someone to come and stay with him. A Montgomery County Common Pleas jury found Damien Brown guilty on Thursday in the June fatal shooting of estranged girlfriend Marquita Brown, 25. Brown, 27, was found guilty of two counts each of murder and felonious assault and one count of having a weapon as a convicted felon. Prosecutors said he shot the victim in the head after an argument at her home. The two were not related. Brown said the victim grabbed a pistol in his hand and the shooting was an accident. His attorney, Scott Calaway, confirmed Friday that an appeal would be filed, but declined to comment further. Marquita Brown’s son — the only other person in the home — called 911 after Damien Brown fled the house, prosecutors said. “My mama is at home dead,” the child said in the 911 call. “Can you come here?” he could be heard pleading with the dispatcher. Brown could get 18 years to life in prison at his Feb. 17 sentencing. Assistant Prosecutor Tracey Ballard Tangeman said he has a history of violence, particularly against women, and she would ask for the maximum sentence. The victim’s mother, Ann Harris, said she was satisfied with the verdict because Brown was found guilty on all counts and “he’s going to serve his consequences,” the Dayton Daily News reported. “We know that that child saw enough, knew enough and heard enough to put it together,” Ballard Tangeman said. “I’ve not met many children who have been that brave and that smart.”

“Man does not live by words alone, despite the fact that sometimes he has to eat them.” — Adlai Stevenson
Last week I wrote an article about cities that have names that relate to the themes of holidays like Loveland, OH — certainly appropriate for the upcoming Valentine’s Day. We have several holiday traditions that have been influenced by the fact that we have a postal system.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
DEAR EDITOR: On Thursday, I called my parents, Ike and Jo Bandelier, to chat as we usually do. The conversation this time was very much different. My Dad informed me that Bob Arnzen had passed away. The response from the loss of this man will be, “Coach Arnzen, the Legend,” “Arnzen Set Records Not Yet Beaten” and hopefully, “The Gentleman Coach From Delphos Has Passed.” These are things that Bob accomplished. Bob Arnzen, The Man, Friend and Mentor is what I experienced with this kindest of men. From the time I can remember, Bob kept an eye on me in summers at the park. He must have had eyes from top to bottom because he kept the same eye on every other kid within eyesight. I took my driver’s training course at Delphos Jefferson in 1962. Apparently I wasn’t an apt pupil as I failed miserably. I flunked my driver’s license test twice in a row. If I flunked the next time, I would not be able to take the test for another year. My mother called Bob and explained the situation. Our car was a 19-foot-long 1962 Mercury Station Wagon. Parking spaces back then were 21 feet in length. The vehicle could be no more than 10 inches from the curb and between the lines front and rear. Bob worked with me every night after school for two weeks during sports season for one hour. I took the test. I made the perfect three moves with kudos’ from the man who would say whether or not I was to receive my license. That was many years ago. As life goes, I say goodbye to my How do we do it all? friend who got me my driver’s license.

When I was done laughing, I realized I had to hope not too many people heard her or I might be out of a job again. I was able to keep the job right through Christmas Eve. I loved every minute of it. Millions of letters have been written to Santa Claus over the centuries. In fact in the movie “Miracle on 34th Street” in a scene that takes place in a court proceeding, the defense attorney was able to prove the existence of Santa Claus since the United States Post Office Department delivered thousands of letters addressed to Santa Claus. Many of you have heard the old saying “Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus.” But you probably don’t know the story behind it. It all began with a letter to the editor that was written by a girl named Virginia O’Hanlon. In 1897, 8-year-old Virginia of New York City wrote a letter to The New York Sun. “Papa says ‘If you see it in The Sun
it’s so.’ Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?” she wrote. The response was written by Francis P. Church, in an unsigned editorial published on Sept. 21, 1897. “Alas! how dreary would be the world,” Mr. Church wrote, “if there were no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias.” He added: “Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see.” Miss O’Hanlon, (her full name was Laura Virginia O’Hanlon Douglas) received a doctorate in education from Fordham University in 1930. In 1959, Miss O’Hanlon retired from the New York City school system after spending 43 years as a teacher and principal. In December 1969, she was hospitalized for heart trouble in Hudson, N.Y. Writing a letter is the most common thing to do; but Virginia O’Hanlon’s letter prompted a most uncommon response. When she died in 1971 she still believed in Santa Claus and if the truth be known, so do I.
JUST A THOUGHT
By SARA BERELSMAN sippy cups with Daddy. Adult conversation is always a valuable trade-off, however, as much as I adore discussing dragon attributes with my 4-year-old and playing the super fun game of “Dump Anything and Everything on the Floor and Watch Mommy Clean it Up” with my youngest. It’s such a versatile game, too — it entails cups of juice, bags of sugar, boxes of cereal, bags of chips — you name it! I just love that game. As wives, we are expected to be vixens in the bedroom (as if any of that lingerie is getting use with two toddlers in the midst) and Julia Child in the kitchen (sorry about the husband’s luck — not my best room in the house — although I do manage to start small fires on a regular basis, which he seems to find enjoyable considering his profession). With the outside grading that my job requires (and did I mention that I have children?) it’s seemingly impossible to maintain anything remotely characteristic of a romantic relationship. Once the weekend rolls around and we’d both like to relax, I’d swoon at the chance for a candlelit dinner followed by a movie and all-night …“conversation.” The reality is closer to his attempting to watch sports on the couch with a permanently fixed beer in hand, a welldeserved reward for working long, sleep-deprived hours at his own job, although he ends up mostly refereeing the kids who are intermittently screaming, crying, and fighting. I fit into this equation by dutifully grading essays in the next room, just barely suppressing the urge to pull each and every hair out of my head. Between working, parenting, maintaining a marriage, and attempting to retain an ounce of sanity, it can feel like having four full-time jobs and feeling as if my job performance for each one is poor. There’s a lot of guilt when it comes to being a parent anyway, and when it comes to my job, it kills me to think I might not be fulfilling my potential. I’m no Donna Reed, so a wife, I just assume on a daily basis that I’m failing miserably. It can be overwhelming at times and the sheer exhaustion of it all can, and sometimes does, bring me to tears. I dream of a hopefully nottoo-distant future in which I strike a nice balance among work, kids, and my husband. (As far as friends go, thank God for Facebook or I’d forget what they look like.) I do realize how lucky I am — I have a job, great kids, and a wonderful husband. I’m not a single parent or an army wife, and I cannot even imagine — seriously, a standing ovation to you. I still can’t help but wonder — someday will I get my grading done at a decent hour, play with the kids and snuggle up to my husband before 2 a.m.? I mean, after I scrape the Cheerios off the bed. Sara Berelsman lives in Delphos with her firefighter husband Andy and their kids Adele and Eleanor. She teaches college English and psychology courses and would like to wish a fellow hard working mother and wife, SAFY’s Melissa Rodriguez, a very happy birthday today. but, like life, it has a gestation period and is usually born with much pain. Afterward comes nurturing through the conscientious exercise of human will and institutions yet to be conceived. Fundamental to this process, as our own founding fathers understood, is the freedom to gather and to express oneself. Every day we tolerate posers, pundits and porn along with klanners, clowns and clambering ninnies for the greater good of a free society where no one gets his head bashed for speaking truth to power. Not so lucky are the hundreds or thousands of Egyptians who have suffered blows (or death) as they have sought their own route to liberty. Reporting from Cairo, New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof tells of a carpenter named Mahmood who had needed medical treatment seven times in 24 hours. His arm was in a sling, his leg in a cast, and his head was bandaged. He was going back for more. Kristof was “awestruck” when Mahmood told him: “I’ll fight as long as I can.” We should all be so awed — not only by the Mahmoods, but also by the Kristofs.

actions. The government has resorted to blanket censorship, intimidation, and today a series of deliberate attacks on journalists carried out by pro-government mobs. The situation is frightening not only because our colleagues are suffering abuse but because when the press is kept from reporting, we lose an independent source of crucial information.” Outrage that journalists are being targeted has been appropriately expressed by various heads of state and the Obama White House. Attacks on journalists are nothing new. Four have been killed already this year. Since 1992, 849 have died in the line of duty. Of those, 545 were murdered with impunity, according to CPJ. Another 145 journalists are in prison worldwide for the offense of reporting. What is new to most eyes are these real-time attacks on people we know. Watching Katie Couric being harassed and shoved by a crowd of angry men in Cairo was especially jarring. Our little Katie?
Make no mistake. Perky Katie is also brave Katie. For journalists, there’s no adrenaline rush like Being There. There’s something in the constitution of those who sign up for Journalism 101 that makes them want to be part of the action but also to do something of value. The bias so many recognize in the media is, among other things, a bias toward the underdog, whether that’s an unwed mother or an oppressed people. That government thugs want to silence reporters in Egypt is understandable. The camera is focused on the powerless masses who want to unseat their pharaoh. This is to say that those reporters who put their boots on the ground go willingly. I’d wager that every reporter confined to a cubicle at this moment wishes he or she were there, even if they are also quietly grateful to be safe. It isn’t only to be where the action is but also to bear witness to history and to the eternal human struggle to be free. It is rare to get to see our constitutional rights (and responsibilities) so starkly displayed or to have the courage of our convictions tested, if only vicariously. The Egyptian people are brave, too, but it is their fight. Another lesson: Democracies have to emerge from the passions of their own constituents. Freedom may be God-given,

He got some points — he’s too good of a player as a 4-year starter — but he never took over the game. Our defense was more than Ryan, too; we had a lot of contributions from a lot of people. That is what we are looking for.” The Mustangs (2-14, 0-6 NWC) started off OK, though they never led. They only had five turnovers in the first stanza and shot 6-of-14 from the field in the canto (19-of-44 for the night, 1-of-7 long range, for 43.2%). However, they had no answer for Ebbeskotte in the same span as he dropped in 10 points in pacing an 8-of23 shooting period (26-of-69 for the game, 5-of-16 trifectas, for 37.7%). As well, fellow seniors Matt Antalis (2 triples) and Logan Bonifas (5 points) chipped in as the Wildcats built a 21-10 edge on a layinand-free throw by Ebbeskotte at the 1:04 mark. However, junior Jacob Howard (gamehigh 19 counters) hit a baseline jumper and classmate Dylan Mulholland a drive with 3.1 ticks on the clock to get the Mustangs within 21-14. The second period proved crucial to both teams: the Wildcats in tacking on 20 more points and the Mustangs in netting only seven.

In fact, his 3-ball from just right of the top of the key with 3.1 ticks showing pushed the Red and White’s margin to 60-31. The Wildcats’ biggest lead of the night was 35 a pair of times in the fourth period despite Smith’s setting down starters early on and Sherrick getting in his backups for extended playing time. “A big area that is hurting us right now is we only have one real ballhandler,” Sherrick added. “I firmly believe that in high school ball, point guard — especially ballhandling — is the most important position. I don’t care what kind of talent you have; if you can’t get the ball down the court and feed it to your talented guys, it doesn’t matter.” The Wildcats won the battle of the glass 40-34 (21-8 offensive) as freshman Ross Thompson added seven for the victors and Mulholland and junior James Richardson grabbed five each for the Mustangs. Both teams return to action Friday: the Wildcats at Bluffton and Allen East hosting Lima Central Catholic. In junior varsity action, the Wildcats made it a clean sweep with a 48-30 triumph. Junior Tony George led the hosts (5-10, 3-4 NWC) with 11, while sophomore Tanner Richardson countered with 11 for the visitors (6-10).

St. John’s squeaks out MAC victory
By AUSTIN CLARKSON The Delphos Herald austinclarkson_24@ hotmail.com DELPHOS — Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium at St. John’s High School was named after its long-time boys basketball coach Bob Arnzen. Friday night was the first game played in the building since his passing Wednesday night and the Blue Jays wanted to honor him. They did in more ways than one. Not only will the players wear the black wrist bands that they were sporting during their matchup with Midwest Athletic Conference foe New Bremen but they came out and played with a lot of determination. The Jays’ defense was very good all night long against their MAC foe and a big third quarter enabled them to take the momentum into the fourth quarter and squeak by the Cardinals by a score of 43-38. The Jays led the Cardinals at the end of every quarter of play after the first quarter and they set the tone early on; they worked their offense and got the shots head coach Aaron Elwer wanted and worked the clock as it was a low-scoring first half. The Jays led 15-13 heading into the locker rooms with both teams going back and forth in the first half. Both teams were pretty even on the offensive side of the ball, normally trading buckets back and forth early. The Jays came out of the locker room and played very well. They outscored the Cardinals 15-8 in the third period and made an especially good run towards the end of the quarter in taking a 30-21 lead at the end of three. Elwer was very pleased with how his team played Friday night: “At halftime, we talked about getting out to a good start early and I thought that we did a good job of that. We are 4-2 in the MAC now and we will need some help but I think that we are playing a little better and we are going to go for our first doublevictory tomorrow night.” Sophomore sensation Curtis Geise led all scorers on the night with 15 points as he really was a big contributor in the Jays’ MAC win. Junior Alex Clark had a very productive night for
Lincolnview rally falls short against Paulding
By Kirk Dougal Times Bulletin Editor email@example.com MIDDLE POINT Lincolnview battled through cold shooting and foul troubles, trailing by double digits at one point, before a second-half charge fell just one possession short as they lost to Northwest Conference foe Paulding 48-45. After watching his team battle back in the second half, Lincolnview coach Rob Welch thought the Lancers just had trouble finding that one big shot that would get them over the hump and inside the 4-point deficit. “I just felt when we needed that shot, we couldn’t get it,” said Welch. “I thought we played them really well. I felt Paulding was one of the top teams in our league but I told the kids we could play with them.” The game looked like it was going to be close at the outset. Paulding’s Grant Harder grabbed an offensive board and put it back in to crack the scoreboard first. Lincolnview’s Clayton Longstreth answered with a 12-foot jumper in the lane and that’s the way the first quarter went - back and forth - until Harder hit a baseline shot that banked in off an impossible angle at the buzzer to give the Panthers a 11-9 lead at the first break. But if the first period was even, the second quarter was Paulding’s to own. The Lancers used their 1-3-1 zone and extended it out into the passing lanes, getting in the outside shooters’ faces. The Panthers countered by using an entry pass into Harder into the high post and he was able to find Devan Bermejo and Travis Keeran on back-door cuts to the bucket for points. “That was something we were looking for,” said Paulding coach Shawn Brewer. “We obviously weren’t making any shots from the outside and we had to get it inside and I thought the guys did a good job with our interior passing for easy looks.” On the defensive end, Harder shut off the middle and had three blocked shots in the quarter, holding Lincolnview to only three points. Going into intermission, Paulding had extended its lead to 21-12. Lincolnview started off well in the third when Zach Kreischer hit a free throw and Longstreth scored twice in the lane. But by now, Longstreth had four fouls and had to sit; Jack Frank had three. The Lancers still whittled the deficit down to six on several occasions but every time they did, the Panthers used the high post for another score. In the third period, it was Anthony Arellano and Dylan Welch who put the ball in the bucket. At the end of three, Paulding was on top 33-25. But the young Lincolnview team refused to give up. Freshman point guard Kyle Williams made four straight free throws to start the quarter, Frank hit a putback and Longstreth another mid-range jumper - suddenly the Lancers trailed only 37-33 with 4:23 left. That is the way the score stayed for two and a half minutes until Bermejo hit two free throws - something the Panthers counted on down the stretch -and then Longstreth scored on a lob on an inbounds play to make it 39-35. From then on it was a march to the free-throw line for Paulding, mostly with Bermejo (6-of-8 freebies in the quarter). “That is what they have come to expect from our senior guard. That’s where we want our point guard, with the ball in his hands,” Brewer said. But not without some final excitement. Lincolnview’s Sloan Whitaker hit a 35-foot 3-pointer to bring the score to 48-45 and the Lancers called a final timeout with one second on the clock. But Paulding was able to safely inbound the ball to Welch. “You have to give credit to Lincolnview and how well they played,” Brewer added. “They played so hard.” Coach Welch agreed: “I’m proud of the kids. Clayton’s got four fouls and hardly played in the second half. Jack didn’t have a rebound in the first half and then does a great job in the second half. We just couldn’t get past that four

Leading the way for the Cardinals was 6-6 junior Troy Williams, who netted 14 points in the loss, while teammate Aaron Clune added 10 points, including two 3-pointers. The Cardinals had a hard time shooting the ball in the fourth quarter and the Jays took advantage of that late by smothering them on the defensive end, not letting them get too many second-chance The Blue Jays took very good control of the basketball with only four turnovers on the night.

Stream and pier anglers have an excellent opportunity to catch qualitysized steelhead trout from September through May. The Division of Wildlife annually stocks five Lake Erie tributary streams with 6- to 8-inch yearlings Little Manistee River (Michigan) strain of steelhead. These fish migrate out into Lake Erie and spend the summer in the cooler part of the lake before returning to streams during the fall through the spring. Steelhead trout caught by anglers in the streams typically average 25 inches long and weigh 5-6 pounds. These fish have usually spent 2-3 summers out in the lake. However, there are a good number of fish that are over 30 inches and weigh more than 10 pounds and have spent up to six summers in the lake. Ohio’s primary steelhead streams are Vermilion, Rocky, Chagrin and Grand rivers and Conneaut Creek. Several other rivers including the Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Huron and Black rivers; Arcola, Cowles, Wheeler, French, Euclid, Turkey, Beaver and Cold creeks get runs of stray steelhead. While Ohio Division of Wildlife biologists have noted a small amount of natural reproduction, it varies greatly from year-to-year. It is too low and erratic to support the quality fishery that has been developed and that anglers have come to expect. Good quantities of cold, spring water and adequate juvenile trout habitat are also rare in northeast Ohio’s Lake Erie tributaries. The fantastic fishing has been maintained by annual stocking and by the practice of most anglers to catch-and-release. During the past two steelhead seasons (Fall 2008 through Spring 2010), we conducted creel surveys to evaluate our steelhead fisheries and gain knowledge about our fish returns, fishing pressure and angler demographics and opinions. Thanks go out to the many anglers who participated in our follow-up study of Ohio’s steelhead anglers in cooperation with the Ohio State University School of Environment and Natural Resources. We learned a lot of good things about the popularity of the Ohio steelhead program, motivations of our steelheaders and the avidity of our steelhead anglers. Where to catch ‘em: Most rivers are around median flow rates. The continued cold, snowy weather has resulted in frozen and slushy river conditions in most locations, with side and shelf ice. Warm-water discharges are providing some minimal open water. Trout eggs, minnows and egg pattern flies have produced fish when open areas were found. Vermilion River: Fish from Birmingham to the lake. Rocky River: Fish from Cedar Point Pools to the lake. Cuyahoga River: Fish from the Peninsula park access to the lake. Chagrin River: Fish from Chagrin River Reservation park access to the lake. Grand River: Fish from Harpersfield Dam to the lake. Arcola Creek: Fish from the estuary to the lake and on the beach. Ashtabula River: Fish from Indian Trails Park to the Walnut Beach breakwall. Conneaut Creek: Fish from the PA line to the lake. Don’t forget the daily bag limit of 2 steelhead trout and salmon in the aggregate valid through May 15. There are many public-access areas on Ohio streams. If you are on private property, you must have landowner permission. Don’t trespass! Private landowners have the right to restrict access on their property. In Ohio, you can gain access to the stream from public-access points but the private-land ownership includes their land under the stream. The streams listed above are navigable streams, meaning you can float a boat through them to fish; however, you cannot get out of your boat and stand on private property to fish unless you have the landowner’s permission. How to catch ‘em: Typical setups are long (7-10’ feet), limber, spinning or fly rods with light line (4-8-lb. test). Common lures in the fall, early winter and again in the spring include small (1/16-1/80 oz.) marabou or synthetic hair jigs tipped with maggots rigged with split shot under a light pencil-thin bobber. Spoons (Little Cleo, KO Wobblers) and spinners (Rooster Tails, Vibrax, etc.) are commonly used on piers, beaches and lower stream reaches. Flyfishers (using 6-9 wt. rods and weight-forward lines) prefer larger, weighted fly patterns, such as nymphs and streamers like woolly buggers, princes, egg-sucking leeches, stonefly and shiner patterns and clouser minnows. Egg fly patterns (single or cluster, sucker spawn, etc.) work well as a single fly or in tandem with a nymph or streamer once the fish move upstream. Salmon or trout eggs are fished as either individual eggs or grouped together in mesh “spawn bags” about the size of a dime or nickel. Eggs can be bounced along the bottom with the current or fished at or near the bottom suspended under a bobber. The fish will be oriented to cover or moderate- to deep-water pools in the fall and move into cuts or gravel runs as they make their way upstream for spawning. As stream temperatures warm during the spring, expect fish to be more likely to chase flies, lures or bait and to be found in riffles and runs. Then in mid-April/ mid-May, they move back downstream and into Lake Erie for the summer.

With much of the past year’s fishing coming to a close and deer season wrapping up, it is time to focus on Ohio’s next big outdoor adventure--ice fishing! But before you head out this year, let’s see how much you REALLY know about ice and ice fishing. Here’s a quick quiz to test your ice IQ. Which is safer, clear ice or cloudy ice? This is actually a trick questionNO ICE IS SAFE ICE! Regardless of how the ice looks, always proceed with caution since there are always thin spots on lakes and ponds. But, as far as which ice is better, clear ice is better than cloudy ice. It is very intimidating if you step out onto a lake or pond and can see clearly to the bottom. But with the way ice forms, the clearer it is, the less impurities and irregularities it has. So, inch-for-inch, clear ice is stronger since it’s purer. There is no one on the lake and I hear weird noises. Is that the sound of the ice cracking? Probably not. The ice on a lake is in a difficult position: cold air above, warm water below and only so much room to expand. So when ice forms, it will actually “sing.” This is the result of the ice pressing against itself as it expands. It is hard to describe but with experience, you can distinguish between the muffled music of forming ice vs. the dangerous sound of ice cracking.
True or False- Speaking of water temperatures, the warmest water will be near the top since the sun can still warm the water. False! Believe it or not, water can have different density depending on the temperature. Water is MOST dense when it is at 4 degrees C (39 degrees F). Instead of warm water at the top and cool water at the bottom in summer, the warmest water in the winter will be at the bottom while the coolest water will be at the top. This cool water will eventually freeze first and become the first layer of ice. So when you start your day ice fishing, try putting your lures near the bottom first since that is where it is the warmest. True or False- Why go ice fishing? The fish are “turned off,” so they won’t bite. False! Just like everything else, fish need to eat to survive. Now granted, they do eat less when the waters get cold since their activity level decreases. But they do need to eat enough to maintain their body condition and make it to the spring when they will reproduce. They aren’t going to eat much and what they will eat will basically be a snack. So scale down the bait size, present it a bit slower, be patient and that Fish Ohio-sized crappie might be on your line before you know it! True or False- During the winter, aquatic vegetation dies off and the lake bottoms are flat with no features or cover for fish. False! Aquatic vegetation can last throughout the winter as long as sunlight can penetrate the ice. If you ever reel up some vegetation in the winter and it is green, it is probably alive. However, if the ice is cloudy or there is an excess amount of snow on the ice, this can cause the vegetation to die off. If the die-off is severe enough, a “winter kill” of fish can happen since decomposing vegetation reduces oxygen in the water that fish need to survive. Here are a few other pointers to keep in mind. The Boy Scout motto “BE PREPARED” is an important part of safety. Try to fish around other ice anglers so if you do fall through, someone might be there to help you get out. Remember to dress appropriately to prevent hypothermia and wear a life jacket or flotation suit when walking around on ice. Many anglers also bring along an extra change of dry clothes just in case of an emergency. Keep your cell phone available but protected from the elements. One of the great things about ice fishing is that tackle can be very simple and inexpensive. Short rods, light gear, light line and small baits are the ticket. Some anglers also like to use small bobbers as strike indicators since strikes can be subtle. Tip-ups are also a common addition to many ice anglers’ tackle: they come in a variety of designs but essentially involve a spool of line hanging in the water with bait attached. Most store-bought versions feature a signaling device, such as a flag, that pops up when a fish takes the bait. In Ohio, anglers can have up to six tip-ups going at one time; each must be labeled with the owner’s name and address. Ice fishing opportunities can be found in a variety of inland lakes and ponds and Lake Erie as well but the “Big Lake” warrants special considerations. For a variety of reasons, including safety, many anglers hire an ice fishing guide who can set them up in the protective shelter of a shanty and help them locate fish. The area between Green and Rattlesnake islands, just west of South Bass Island, usually offers some of the safest ice on the lake. For those targeting walleye, use minnows on jigging lures or blade baits. Yellow perch can be caught with a spreader or crappie rig tipped with shiners. Other things to remember before going ice fishing: Have a valid Ohio fishing license; Know the size and daily limits for the fish that you hope to catch; Learn the regulations for where you are fishing; Make a checklist of things you will need to have fun and be safe; Consider leaving a “float plan” with someone who knows that you will be out on the ice, indicating where you plan to fish, where you plan to park your vehicle and when you plan to return home. For boaters, this is common practice; for ice anglers, it’s not a bad idea, either. Once the freeze is on, check the most recent ice fishing reports, or make a quick stop at the local bait shop to find out what’s biting and where.

Repair hunting equipment? Clean guns? Fight cabin fever? For those interested, coyote hunting is a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors this time of year while helping to keep the coyote population in check. “Now is an excellent time to hunt coyotes; they are much more active due to breeding season (which generally takes place from January through March). They are also covering more territory in search of food sources,” explains Scott Peters, assistant wildlife management supervisor for northeast Ohio. “Since the 1980s, coyotes have been documented in all 88 counties of Ohio. These wary furbearers are fairly common nowadays and well-distributed throughout the state, making them an accessible game species. They don’t have any natural predators in the state besides humans; therefore, hunting helps reduce populations, thereby reducing the risks of disease, starvation and conflict situations.” Typical methods of hunting coyotes include using lures or calls which sometimes yield other predators as well. Peters points out, “We’ve received reports of both red and gray foxes as well as bobcats being seen by coyote hunters. Fox season ended Monday and bobcats are a protected species in this state but it is an exciting experience, witnessing these fascinating species.” Hunters should note that during fox season, a fur-taker permit is required. Coyote hunting is open all year round and even during deer gun seasons as long as hunters carry a valid deer permit during that time. A wealth of information on hunting coyotes and other varmints is available via books, magazines, DVDs, or online sources. Hunters should also visit local hunting supply stores and outdoor outfitters where experts are available to offer advice on hunting tactics, calls and other information. For more information, contact your local Wildlife District. ----New Wildlife officer assigned to Lake County Jason Keller, 23, of Painesville and formerly of New Bremen, was recently assigned as the new Lake County wildlife officer. Keller’s new assignment follows the promotion of former Lake County wildlife officer Tom Rowan to Law Enforcement Supervisor in northeast Ohio. Keller is a 2005 graduate of New Bremen High School. In 2007, he received an Associate’s Degree in wildlife management from Hocking College. Before becoming a wildlife officer, Keller worked for two seasons at the DOW’s Mercer Waterfowl Refuge.

Arnzen a man of integrity
His demeanor and persona epitomized and defined the coaching profession for over four decades in Northwest Ohio. When defining Coach Arnzen, it was what he was “beyond” the X’s and O’s and dayto-day rigors of being a longtime high Adams school basketball coach. He possessed a sense of “community” and blended that sense into a person whose inner pride and competitive aura created a strong base to motivate the young men and women in the Delphos community to exceed above and beyond the normal standards set in a typical high school athletic situation. For decades, Blue Jay athletes “bought-in” to Coach Arnzen’s ultra-competitive,

Webster’s dictionary has three definitions of “integrity”. They are: 1) An unimpaired condition: SOUNDNESS 2) Firm adherence to a code of moral values: INCORRUPTIBILITY 3) The quality or state of being complete or undivided: COMPLETENESS. In my opinion — and in our profession — Bob Arnzen is the definition of integrity.
yet humble, approach to the game of basketball. For me, personally, Coach Arnzen wasn’t just a local high school coach that we competed against once a year; he was a true legend, a friend and a man who gave back to his profession in a way that exuded class, perseverance and INTEGRITY. He was one of my idols
because of who he was and the type of person he was, not because he won championships in the game of basketball. Those championships came as a by-product of his innate ability to motivate his players and teach the game of basketball. Bob Arnzen chose to be a basketball coach but the Bob Arnzen everyone in this area knew and adored could have been the CEO of the profession of his choice. He was truly a special man with special attributes who had a positive impact on hundreds of people in the Delphos community and the entire state of Ohio’s high school coaching profession. Thank you Coach… just for being you and all that YOU encompassed!!
Van Wert pulls away in the middle quarters for WBL rout
By Jim Cox Times Bulletin Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org VAN WERT - Van Wert outscored Wapakoneta 46-10 in the middle two quarters and ended up with a decisive 74-33 win over the Redskins Friday night at the Den. The Cougars are now 13-2 overall and 4-2 in the Western Buckeye League. Wapak is 2-13 and 0-6. The first quarter was an ugly turnover-fest (8 by each team), although when the teams managed to get off shots, they were deadly accurate (6-of-8 by Van Wert, 5-of-8 by Wapakoneta). The visitors spurted out to a 6-2 lead in the first two minutes but the Cougs seemed to restore things to normality with a 9-0 run (Jacob Myers 3 from straight out, steal and 1-of-2 free throws by Reggie Phillips, steal and layup by Phillips, corner 3 by Myers). That made it 11-6, Van Wert, but the Redskins came right back with six in a row, all by 6-5 junior Kaleb Vondenhuevel, to take the lead 12-11. Van Wert’s Corey Clifton hit two free throws, then stole the ball and went the distance with 57 seconds left. Wapak sophomore Travis Bertram hit two from the stripe but Myers took the ensuing inbounds pass and went the distance to score at the buzzer -- 17-14, Van Wert, after one. The ’Skins got within 18-16 at the 7:38 mark of the second period but it was all Cougs after that. Van Wert went on a 19-1 run, featuring three triples by Clifton. That made it 37-17 but Wapak scored the last five points of the period to leave just a hint of doubt at the half -- 37-22, Van Wert. The third period was even worse than the second for the visitors. Vondenhuevel got the first bucket of the second half to extend the Redskins’ run to 7-0 but Van Wert scored the next 29 points to lead by a whopping 66-24 with 7:04 left in the game. Jake Hood scored all of his 11 points in the third quarter and also spearheaded a Cougar defense that forced seven turnovers and 1-of-11 shooting during those eight minutes. Van Wert’s three leading scorers in the first 24 minutes -- Myers (20), Clifton (18) and Hood (11) -- sat out the fourth period, which the Cougs won 11-9 while getting seven points from Joe Moonshower. Moonshower ended the night with 11 points, giving Van Wert four doubledigit scorers. Vondenhuevel had 15 for Wapak. “Overall our energy was pretty good,” said Cougar coach Dave Froelich. “It took a little while to knock off the ice and snow but we got it going in the second quarter and our pressure really got to them. Our ability to get out and go in third quarter really solidified things. We got better as the game progressed.” For the game, the Cougars shot 26-of-49 (53%) from the field, while the Redskins hit 13-of-36 (36%). Van Wert was a bit better from the line — (14-of-19 for 74%) to 6-of-9 (67%) for Wapak — and on the boards: 24-18. The turnover picture was lopsided: Van Wert 12, Wapakoneta 25. It’s been a tough year for Wapakoneta but the score of this game wasn’t indicative of what the Redskins are capable of. “In our league you have to respect everybody,” said Froelich. “They’re gonna be OK. They’re playing a bunch of sophomores. They got the
With so many great individual performances for the Knights, it was clearly a complete team victory for Crestview. The loss drops Bluffton to 9-6 on the season and puts them at 3-3 in the NWC. Crestview runs its record to 11-3 overall and 5-1 in the league. Miller led all scorers with 17 points, adding eight rebounds, and Steven Rickard was also in double figures for Crestview with 14. Siefker (13 points/7 rebounds) and Gleason (12 points/nine rebounds) were Bluffton’s leaders.
Here we are: the finale of the 2010-11 Pigskin Picks (sob!! sob!!!). Don’t worry, my many fans!! The 2011-12 PP is only 6 1/2 months away — at least for the college games!!! My overall record is 12493 (61-36 college, 63-57 pros), whilst Dave of the Boninsegna tribe is 89-65 (46-22 college, 43-43 pros) and Monsieur Austin of the Clarkson brigade moved the guest pickers’ mark to 120-97 (64-33 and 56-64). Time to pick The Ultimate Game, Numero Uno, The Big Cheese, For All The Marbles, The Game of Games, The Showdown, The Legend-Maker — pretty big game, huh? I have invited a couple of other guest pickers to make their choices for the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, Dave won’t be with us this week as he tends to something far more important. Pittsburgh versus Green Bay in Super Bowl XLV. JIM METCALFE GREEN BAY: The Number 1 and 2 scoring defenses in the NFL with playmakers and
speed all over the place: line, linebackers, secondary. Two quarterbacks who can keep plays alive with their legs. Good receiving corps on both sides. Pittsburgh may have an advantage in the running game but Jim Metcalfe their offensive line is more beat up than Green Bay’s. Pittsburgh has the advantage because of the experience factor as far as playing in the Big Game but the Saints proved last year that isn’t as big a deal as one might think, beating a SB-experienced Colts team. If Packers can avoid disastrous penalties and turnovers, they can move the ball. Vegas is calling this a close game; I think they are correct. This won’t be a 10-7 game but I don’t predict it will be a 40-34 score, either. Something like 20-17, Green Bay.
-----AUSTIN CLARKSON GREEN BAY: The Super Bowl this year should be a very entertaining game to watch. Two of the best teams in the league year in and year out are matched up head to head and the only better scenario would be if the Cowboys were playing for the trophy in their own stadium. We’ll get Clarkson them next year, boys!! (Editor’s Note: Amen, brother!!!) Anyhow, I think that the Packers are my pick to win the Super Bowl over a very talented Pittsburgh team. The Packers were probably the hottest team heading into the postseason and they continued their dominance throughout the playoffs. Behind Clay Matthews Jr. and their very brutal defense, I think that it is going to be hard for Big
Ben to do much against this defense. I believe that it will be a low-scoring game and it will probably come down to a lastsecond field goal where Aaron Rodgers will march the Packers down the field to set up the game-winning score with time expiring. Packers defeat the Steelers 20-17 (EN: He stole that pick from me!!!!). ----C H A R L I E WARNIMONT Pittsburgh — This will not be a pretty game as the two defenses will rule the night. However, Big Ben gets the job done late and Warnimont wins his third Super Bowl ring. The final score will be 21-17 with the Steelers scoring in the final five minutes of the game, then turning it over to the defense to hold the lead.
Greve kid back tonight (from an injury). They played St. Mary’s tough last week (62-54 loss). They lose to Minster, who has one loss, in overtime. They lose to Bath in overtime. They make a great run to get close to Lima Senior (70-63). With young teams, sometimes it’s a roller-coaster thing. They’re gonna be OK. They’ve got a lot of good parts.” AJ Smith (15 points) and Chadd Phillips (10) led the Cougar JVs (12-3) to a 48-28 win. Wapakoneta was led in scoring by Joel Hegemeier and Zach Schmerge with six apiece.

second quarter. Crestview built on that momentum over the course of the second quarter. Even though Bluffton kept things close for the opening three minutes of the period and only trailed 17-15, the Knights stepped things up at that point. Using another big trey by Miller as a springboard, the Knights closed the half on an 11-5 run to open up a 28-20 lead at the break. The opening half was particularly impressive for Crestview considering the Gleason/Siefker duo was limited to only 14 combined points; the Knights also went into the locker rooms with a 14-10 edge in the rebounding battle. Needless to say, Best was very pleased with his team’s defensive performance in limiting the Bluffton bigs and shutting down the rest of the Pirates. “It is what they do,” said Best, referring to Bluffton’s game revolving around Gleason and Siefker. “They want to bang at you in the post and use their height advantage. That’s what they do and we took it away from them. From a defensive standpoint, that’s what you want to do. You want to frustrate them. And I thought we did that.” The Knights continued to frustrate the Pirates in the sec-

ond half – using their strength and speed to force 10 turnovers and once again win the battle on the glass. Despite seven points by Gleason in the third quarter, the Knights held Siefker scoreless and put up 16 points to Bluffton’s 12. Another Miller trey at the buzzer gave Crestview a 44-32 lead after three and all but sealed the Pirates’ demise at the hands of the pesky and persistent Knights. “When they are taller and longer, you have to be a gnat,” explained Best. “You have to be the aggressor. I thought all our guys – not just the guys guarding the post – had great awareness tonight on backside help. There was good ball pressure and a good job on ball penetration. It was one of our better defensive efforts this year. We just had really good awareness of what we were trying to do as a team. It was good to see.” Crestview didn’t let up in the fourth quarter, scoring 14 of the first 16 points of the stanza and taking the biggest lead of the game, 58-34, with 2:33 left in the game. Rob Cook was charged with a difficult task in trying to control the paint for Crestview, Cook responded with four points and 12 big rebounds for his team.
Crestview also dominated the junior varsity contest, crushing Bluffton 79-24.

If someone truly wants to understand R. Sargent Shriver, all they need to do is reflect on a public act that took place only three months before his death at age 95. Although weakened by his long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease, the founder of the Peace Corps and other projects for the needy attended the first Archdiocese of Washington “White Mass” for children and adults with disabilities. One last time, he stood with those touched by the Special Olympics and the work of his wife, the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver. “Sarge’s knowledge of God’s love ... was the structure that supported his public life. From this faith, hope and love flowed his thirst for justice and peace and the courage to speak for those who had no voice,” Cardinal Donald Wuerl said at Shriver’s funeral Mass last week in Potomac, Md. “He spoke not from political expediency or correctness, but from an abiding sense of conviction.” The statesman’s life was shaped by many of the 20th century’s most powerful forces, from the Great Depression in his childhood to World War II combat at Guadalcanal. His marriage took him deep into the Kennedy family, which launched his work, yet limited his political career. Shriver took on global poverty when his brother-in-law, John F. Kennedy, was president

and helped lead the domestic War on Poverty during the Lyndon Johnson administration. Many of the projects he help launch live on -- such as Head Start, Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA), Legal Services, Foster Grandparents and Upward Bound. Those who worked with Shriver, former President Bill Clinton noted at the funeral, were left asking this question: “Could anybody be as good as he seemed to be? Come on now. ... Every other man in this church feels about 2 inches tall right now.” Where did Shriver’s drive come from? Son Mark Shriver stressed that his father’s motivations were never strictly political, but were rooted in the first item on the daily calendar of his life. Wherever he went, whether with family or on business, the first question he asked upon arrival was the time and location of the nearest morning Mass. The Shriver patriarch
“Daddy was joyful ‘til the day he died and I think that joy was deeply rooted in his love affair with God,” said Mark Shriver. “Daddy loved God and God loved him right back. ... Daddy let go. God was in control and, oh, what a relationship they had.” While his Catholicism helped Shriver as an activist and volunteer, it marginalized him in some political circles. As the years passed, son Timothy Shriver said he could see that his father’s commitments made many people uncomfortable. At times, his faith “made him an outlier. He was too public with all of that spirituality.” In 1972, Shriver stepped in and became his party’s emergency choice as Sen. George McGovern’s running mate in a long-shot run for the White House. It helped that Shriver was a political progressive and a traditional Catholic. Still, there hasn’t been another antiabortion Democrat on the national ticket since Shriver. During the 1992 Democratic National Convention, both Sargent and Eunice Shriver joined several other prominent Democrats in signing a public document that openly rejected their party’s stance on abortion. “To establish justice and to promote the
general welfare, America does not need the abortion license,” it stated. “What America needs are policies that responsibly protect and advance the interest of mothers AND their children, both before AND after birth. ... We can choose to extend once again the mantle of protection to all members of the human family, including the unborn.” Thus, Shriver’s human family included the unborn and the mentally handicapped, AIDS patients in Africa and the urban poor, abandoned children and the elderly who need medical care. “No one can deny that his liberal Catholicism was a Christian politics: Admirable, comprehensive, and at the test, consistent,” noted Catholic writer Ross Douthat, an op-ed columnist and blogger for The New York Times. “That test was abortion, where Shriver was one of the few Great Society liberals to remain a pro-life liberal as well. ... Together with his wife, Eunice, he endured as the embodiment of a liberal road not taken on that issue. For that, as for everything he did in public life, he will be sorely missed.”

The Herald — 9
Donate used books, DVDs, CDs and magazines to library
2010 proved to be a very busy year at the library again. A total of 230,029 items were checked out during the year. 3,033 new books were added to our shelves last year and 138 new DVD titles were added to our collection. A successful summer reading program was held, children’s activity days, storytimes, and numerous adult programs were enjoyed. Please watch the Herald for announcements of activities that are being planned for this year. You may then call the library to sign up for these events. Due to state funding cuts, we had less money to use for supplies, materials (including books, CDs, DVDS, and magazines) and salaries in 2010. Hours of operation were cut and everything else was trimmed also. At this point, we are not sure what Governor Kasich will propose for library funding in the state budget, but we are expecting more cuts. With that in mind, we are asking for you to remember the library when getting rid of DVDs or books. Lots of times we are able to add new titles to our shelves this way. Other donations are put on our sale cart or added to our book sale and in turn help us to be able to purchase new books. Please note: a picture book, ‘The Christmas Angel’ by Hans Hilhelm, was put in the book drop on JAN. 3 by mistake. If this book belongs to you, please drop by and reclaim it. 13 new titles were added to our DVD collection this month: Alpha And Omega The Blues Brothers A Charlie Brown Valentine Citizen Kane Dinner For Schmucks Down And Out In Beverly Hills A Fistful Of Dollars For A Few Dollars More Knight And Day Mystic Pizza Ruthless People Salt Secretariat ents to take stock of her life. She steps tentatively into the family bakery business and finds herself agreeing to create a wedding cake for the acclaimed star of a daytime television drama. But soon someone close to the brideto-be is horribly murdered and it seems that that someone is ruthlessly determined to stop the wedding. Tick Tock – James terious death. Finding Home – Melanie Rose When a car crash during a blizzard leaves a woman stranded in the New England countryside with no memory, she’s taken in by Vincent, a banker whose adorable six-year-old daughter, Jadie, has cystic fibrosis and hasn’t spoken since her sister died and her mother disappeared two year ago. But when this stranger arrives, calling herself Kate, Jadie suddenly begins speaking again—claiming that she can talk to her sister’s ghost and that Kate is an angel sent to help them. As Kate struggles with startling flashbacks to a past life that doesn’t seem to be her own, powerful questions arise: What happened to Jadie’s mother? What secrets is Vincent hiding? Why has Jadie been silent for so long? Strategic Moves – Stuart Woods Stone Barrington is enjoying his usual dinner at Elaine’s when his boss at Woodman & Weld, the law firm where Stone is “of counsel,” begins to talk about a partnership. It seems Stone’s discreet handling of superwealthy clients has earned him a place in the most elite of white-shoe law firms. But almost as soon as his elevation is mentioned, Stone gets wind of an impending scandal that could put some of New York’s rich and powerful in financial peril. In a world of easy wealth, Park Avenue penthouses and society galas, Stone Barrington is something of an outsider…but one who always knows exactly what his clients require. NON-FICTION Healthy Hips Handbook – Karl Knopf Millions of people suffer from debilitating hip conditions each year. With this book, you can make sure this doesn’t happen to you. This friendly manual outlines the causes for common hip conditions, including snapping hip, IT band fasciitis, osteoarthritis, and sciatica. Illustrated with over 300 step-by-step photos, this book offers easyto-follow exercises to build strength, improve flexibility, hasten recovery and avoid future injury. It also features specially designed programs that keep you from suffering common hip issues (such as groin strain and arthritis) and prepare the body for everything from daily tasks to highrisk sports (such as biking, soccer, jogging and skiing). JOLT! The impending dominance of the electric car — James Billmaier Fasten your seatbelts, America. The electric vehicle is about to take us on one heck of a ride. So states the author in his ground-breaking book on the impending electric vehicle (EV) revolution. He argues that in addition to being a blast to drive, EVs will come to dominate the personal auto market in the coming years because they are cheaper to run and cheaper to maintain. Adopting EVs will also allow America to put the brakes on sending hundreds of billions of dollars a year to OPEC, helping us achieve energy independence within a decade. The Cleaner Plate Club – Beth Bader & Ali Benjamin Take a look at any children’s menu at virtually any restaurant and you might get the idea that kids’ stomachs are gastronomically programmed to digest only a small handful of items: processed meats, pasta, fried potatoes, and melted cheese. If you’d like to give your family something other than deep-fried potatoes and processed grains, this book is for you. The authors say it is possible to feed your family well, to encourage kids to enjoy kale, or tomatoes, or squash, or beans, and to instill in them lifelong healthy habits. It is possible to teach them that chickens don’t have fingers and that the very best foods don’t come emblazoned with cartoon characters. It is possible to serve food that brings your family together, helps children thrive, and gives your kids the roots they need to someday have healthy families of their own. Make It Wild! — Fiona Danks & Jo Schofield In this book, the authors show how children can enjoy the endless opportunities offered by wild places. Looking at what nature has to offer, they explore the potential of raw materials such as snow, leaves and sticks and demonstrate how children can use them to make anything from a cricket bat or a clay monster to ice lanterns or flaming balloons. As they play the kids are learning how to solve practical problems, how to work together, how to see a process through from start to finish, how to use potentially dangerous tools safely — all skills they need to cope with the world and develop an understanding of the way it works. Memorials 500 Best Comfort Food Recipes – Johanna Burkhard Crazy About Cookies – Krystina Castella Late For School – Steve Martin Olivia Goes To Venice – Ian Falconer In Memory Of: Pauline Wrocklage Given by: Family The First Christmas In memory of: Troy D. Reindel Given by: The Reindel Family FROM THE CHILDREN’S CORNER: Punxsutawney Phyllis by Susanna Leonard Hill Legend says that if an animal (a groundhog) emerges from his burrow on February 2 and sees his shadow, he would be frightened and run back in, thus predicting six more weeks of winter. Punxsutawney Phyllis wants to be that groundhog but right now it’s her Uncle Phil’s job and a female has never been chosen for the job. But Phyllis is no ordinary groundhog. She loves the outdoors, even in winter and knows a lot about weather. When her uncle Phil is ready to retire, will he pick Phyllis to take his place? Jack’s Path Of Courage: The Life Of John F. Kennedy by Doreen Rappaport Rappaport and illustrator Matt Tavares have used this format to create distinguished books about Martin Luther
King, Abraham Lincoln and Eleanor Roosevelt. This picture biography begins with Kennedy’s boyhood and travels through his heroic years in WW2, his years in Congress, the books he wrote and finally his presidency and assassination. Scattered throughout are quotes taken from his speeches and writings. Rappaport manages to honor President Kennedy without idolizing him. Bink And Gollie by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee This book may be the beginning of a very popular series, rivaling Junie B. Jones and Amber Brown. Bink (short and rumpled) and Gollie (tall and fashionable) are very unlikely friends who never miss a chance to don their roller skates and hit the streets of their neighborhood. The book is a combination of picture book, graphic novel and easy reader with three laugh-out-loud stories. When you read this, you’re going to hope for more. Saint Training by Elizabeth Fixmer Mary Clare O’Brian is a young teen growing up in a large Catholic family in 1967. Her family is struggling financially, her mother is pregnant again and her older brother just got a draft notice for the war in Viet Nam. She decides to help her family by going into training to be a saint (first a nun, then a saint). But the path is not clear and there are so many turbulent issues: feminism, the war, race relations. Humor helps break the weight of these issues, as Mary Clare is just as apt to pray for admission into the convent as she is that ‘Dippity-Doo’ will tame her frizzy hair. On both issues Mary Clare need a miracle. The Crossing by Jim Murphy Jim Murphy is known for his excellent portrayal of American history and this is no exception. Here he chronicles 1776, Washington’s first year as Commander in Chief and his struggle to train and lead a small unruly army of ragtag soldiers against overwhelming odds. Murphy calls this time ‘one of the bleakest in our history.’ Read how Washington is changed from an inexperienced leader to one able to devise and execute a bold military action that changes the course of the war: the crossing of the Delaware River.
Patterson A rash of horrifying crimes rips through the city, throwing it into complete chaos and terrorizing everyone living there. Immediately it becomes clear that they are the work of a calculating, efficient, and deadly mastermind. The city calls on Detective Michael Bennett, pulling him away from a seaside retreat with his family. Bennett enlists the help of a former colleague, FBI agent Emily Parker. All too soon, another appalling crime leads Bennett to a shocking discovery that exposes the killer’s pattern and the earth-shattering enormity of his plan. Angel Harp – Michael Phillips Widowed at thirty-four, amateur harpist, Marie Buchan realizes that her life and dreams are slowly slipping away. A longed-for summer in Scotland offers far more than a change of scenery. Not only does the music of her harp capture the fancy of the small coastal village she visits, but she is unexpectedly drawn into a love triangle involving the local curate and the local duke. The boyhood friends are estranged as adults because of their mutual love of another woman (now dead) some years before. History seems destined to repeat itself, with Marie in the thick of it. Here involvement in the lives of the two men, as well as with quirky characters in the community, leads to a range of exciting relationships and lands Marie in the center of the controversy over a mys-

You did nothing wrong, and the girl undoubtedly feels guilty. It’s easier for her to blame others than recognize that her father didn’t care if she knew about his death. Your job was to attempt to find the children, and you fulfilled your duty honorably. Our condolences on your loss. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Disappointed Church Member,” whose pastor wouldn’t pray for her husband because he attends a different church. I am Jewish, and at my synagogue, we say a Hebrew prayer for healing at each service. Before the prayer, a list of those who are ill is read aloud, followed by the question, “Does anyone have any other names?” It makes me proud of my faith to hear the names of both Jews and Christians. “Disappointed” should tell her pastor that this is a common practice, not only among different churches but also across different faiths. -- Southern Jew Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Can you provide this information? -- E.L., Pittsfield, Mass. A: “South Pacific” opened on Broadway on April 7, 1949, at the Majestic Theatre with opera star Ezio Pinza playing Emile de Becque and Mary Martin portraying Nellie Forbush. Martha Wright took over for Martin in 1951, playing Nellie for 1,047 performances; she remained with the show until it closed in January 1954. In January 1952, George Britton took over the role of Emile and also remained until the show closed. In June 1953, the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical moved to the Broadway Theatre. By the way, a revival of “South Pacific” opened on Broadway in 2008 to rave reviews, winning seven Tonys. Q: It has been m a n y y e a r s s i n c e I have heard anything about one of my Vaughn Meader favorite comedians, Vaughn Meader. Do you know how he ended his career? -- R.E.D., Naples, Fla. A: Abbott Vaughn Meader hit the big time with his satirical album “The First Family,” which spoofed President John F. Kennedy and Camelot. After the president’s assassination in November 1963, the sales of his album plummeted. Even venues that had booked him canceled his appearances. Unable to find employment, he sank into depression and began to use drugs and alcohol as an escape. Eventually, he returned to entertainment as a bluegrass singer and musician, becoming a popular local performer in his native state of Maine. He died in 2004, at the age of 68.

The Herald –11
By Bernice Bede Osol
Sunday, Feb. 6, 2010 It is quite possible that the months ahead could introduce a whole new set of circumstances you’ve never faced previously, so don’t take anything for granted. Be prepared to be adept at handling all fresh developments. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you start finding fault with others, don’t think you will remain immune from criticism yourself. Once you open up Pandora’s box, it will be impossible to reseal. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Because conditions could cause you to get careless and spend impulsively, all financial affairs must be handled as rationally as possible and with great prudence so that you don’t suffer a loss. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - There’s a good chance you could indulge yourself in too many things that may not be good for you, eating or drinking too much can lead down a long and lonesome road. Take control. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - Normally, when it really counts you are extremely thorough and methodical about what you are doing. Yet after accepting a job of this ilk, you could thoughtlessly proceed in a slipshod fashion. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Determine exactly what you want to achieve today or else you could get caught up wasting your valuable time doing what another wants to do that is of no or little significance to you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Being a winner and achieving your goals are both admirable aspirations, but if you do either at the expense of another, your victory will be hollow and the repercussions could be severe. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Embarrassment is indicated if you attempt to come off as knowing all about a matter or issue about which you are totally ignorant. It isn’t worth pretending to be an authority when you’re not. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) When doing business with another today, try to get in writing what you feel could be problematical for you later -- if left up in the air. Your prediction is likely to come true. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Although much may be promised, nothing of significance will be gained if you put a business deal together based only upon the trust of a friendship. Make sure the proposal is able to stand on its own. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Keep your wits about you at all times today because conditions could turn out to be a bit uncertain and cause some disruptions. Reserve your judgment call until all the facts are in. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) - The only way to keep your budget healthy is to trim away all nonessential expenditure immediately. Once your funds are gone, it will be impossible to get back what you need. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Be extremely careful about what secrets you reveal to whom. Someone with little common sense could distort what s/he hears, making it impossible to get your reputation back. Monday, Feb. 7, 2010 Just because you may never have tested your entrepreneurial skills doesn’t mean you won’t be successful. Some interesting developments could occur for you once you open that door and spread your wings. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Do not try to impose either a position or a concept on others if they are unwilling to listen. If they simply don’t want to hear it, turning up the heat won’t change their minds. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Try to get out of loaning any of your prized possessions, even if a close pal wants to do the borrowing. It’s simply one of those days when people in general can be accident-prone. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Pick a course and try to stick to it if you want to accomplish something. If you don’t, there’s a good chance you’ll jump from one project to another with nothing to show for your efforts. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) There is a good chance you will be the source of your own undoing by knowingly engaging in something your better judgment warns against. Don’t ignore your common sense. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Stop and think about what you are doing to be sure you don’t push your financial spending beyond the limits. Once you cross over the line it will be difficult to get out of debt. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Teamwork will get a bit testy if those involved are only in it for their individual interests. Unless there is a collective goal, no one is likely to work together. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Be sure to map out a game plan for the day, with a definite goal or direction in mind. Unless you do so, you could easily drift off course and get hung up on petty things that’ll get you no place. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - It’s nice to take an interest in others, but excessive curiosity could draw you into the complicated developments of another. Don’t poke your nose into places where it doesn’t belong. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Important decisions should not be made for absentees, so don’t presume to know what others want or you could get yourself in a pickle by choosing wrongly. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Consult everybody involved, especially a superior, before making any changes to plans that have already been made. Be safe, not sorry. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Avoid getting involved in the handling of funds for others, no matter how well equipped you think you are to do so. If something is amiss that you don’t know about, you will be blamed. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Although arrangements with both friends and business associates should work out rather well for you, this won’t necessarily hold true in involvements with family members.

Some Super Bowl plans turned into Super Mess
By SCHUYLER DIXON The Associated Press ARLINGTON, Texas — Runways too snowy to receive airliners packed with football fans. Sidewalks too icy for cowboy boots. Temperatures too cold to distinguish Dallas from Pittsburgh or Green Bay. Just two days before the Super Bowl, a fresh blast of snow and ice canceled hundreds of flights, transformed highways into ribbons of white and caused dangerous sheets of ice to fall from Cowboys Stadium, sending at least six people to the hospital. It was enough to turn the biggest week in American sports into a Super Mess. The six people hurt Friday were private contractors who had been hired by the NFL to prepare the stadium for the game. One man was hit in the head, another in the shoulder. None of the injuries was considered lifethreatening. Most stadium entrances were closed as a precaution. Officials raised the temperature inside the arena in an attempt to melt remaining ice. The Dallas-Fort Worth area received as much as 5 inches of snow overnight — nearly twice its annual average — and by Friday morning downtown Dallas hotels were selling ski hats and scarves alongside cowboy hats. A winter storm warning was issued for suburban Arlington, home of the $1.3 billion stadium where the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers are to play Sunday. “It looks like, ‘Oh, no, I’m back in Canada,”’ said Sammy Sandu, a 32-year-old property developer from Kelowna, British Columbia. “It’s just pouring down snow. Are we still at home, or have we left? We didn’t drink that much last night, did we?” Forecasters expected game day to be mostly sunny, with highs in the 40s, which would probably not be warm enough to melt all the snow and ice. Sandu made it to Dallas with his father Thursday, but other members of their party weren’t so lucky. His brother still hoped to arrive from Miami in time for the game, but a friend abandoned the trip after a flight from Vancouver was canceled. Like much of the region, airlines were struggling to recover from a massive blizzard earlier in the week that brought up to 2 feet of snow and bitter cold temperatures to as much as half the nation. More than 300 arriving flights were canBy BEN FELLER The Associated Press

Obama challenges Mubarak: Consider your legacy
Gloria and Mike Closson fill out a form for the statue they brought to the Treasure Hunters Roadshow Friday at the Mircrotel. WASHINGTON — Embracing an Egyptian future without Hosni Mubarak, President Barack Obama on Friday pressed the embattled leader to consider his legacy and exit office in a way that would give his country the best chance for peace and democracy. Obama tried to rally world pressure on Mubarak to make “the right decision” but did not call for his immediate resignation. “I believe that President Mubarak cares about his country. He is proud, but he’s also a patriot,” Obama said as Cairo remained a center of protest and upheaval. The U.S. president said he had urged Mubarak to listen to those in his government and the pleading voices of his people, and decide if he’s willing to accept a serious transition out of power. Obama, limited in his leverage to control events, appeared to adjust his tactics in making brief comments to reporters. Instead of just outlining Egyptian steps to halt the street violence and move toward a freer government, Obama openly played to Mubarak’s pride and reputation. Mubarak, facing an uprising in his country after nearly 30 years of rule, has said he will not run for re-election in September. Obama called that a “psychological break” for Mubarak and then challenged him to reflect on his next By JEFF KAROUB Associated Press
celed at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, a hub for American Airlines. The city’s smaller airport, Love Field, was closed before dawn because of snow on the runways, but it reopened by noon. Love is home to Southwest Airlines. Andy Williams, a 51-year-old attorney from Grafton, Wis., said he was frustrated to find his American flight from Milwaukee delayed for about five hours. He was already planning ahead for the worst-case scenario. “If this flight gets canceled, I’ll start driving down tonight,” he said. “Clearly it’s not my first choice but, at least you’re in control of your own destiny at that point.” But the chilly temperatures were not expected to faze the teams competing in the real event, nor their hardy fans, who are used to cooler climes. The temperature in Dallas on Friday stood at 20 — the same as Pittsburgh. Green Bay was slightly colder at 17. “We deal with it very well back home,” Steelers fan Alex Sax said on his way the NFL Experience fan festival in Dallas. “Here, they don’t know how to deal with it. There’s no plows. No salt trucks. When we drove from airport, we were the only car on the road.” Asked if the weather could affect future Super Bowl bids, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the conditions this year have been exceptional. “We’ve had a winter to remember. Some would say to forget,” Goodell said. “It’s going to be a great weekend for us, and the weather’s getting better.“ The Super Bowl is scheduled to be played in Indianapolis next year and in the open-air New Meadowlands stadium in New Jersey in 2014. Some Packers fans at Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee found themselves delayed but not completely downhearted. James Jennings, 78, was scheduled to fly out of Milwaukee with his 44-year-old son. They were taking a charter flight as part of a package for which they paid a total of $25,000. Jennings, a criminal lawyer from Norridge, Ill., said he had absolutely no doubt that the flight would leave as scheduled. “At $12,500 a ticket, are you kidding me? They’d get Evel Knievel to fly that thing.“ Elsewhere Friday, the bitter cold seeped into the South, where icy roads were blamed for several traffic deaths in Louisiana and Mississippi. The system extended its grip as far east as North Carolina, where freezing rain was possible. move. He did that with a reminder that world is watching. “The key question he should be asking himself is, ‘How do I leave a legacy behind in which Egypt is able to get through this transformative period?’” Obama said. “And my hope is — is that he will end up making the right decision.” The comments came in response to a reporter’s question about Egypt, the first one Obama had agreed to answer since the crisis began 11 days earlier. In a brief appearance with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Obama declined to answer whether a credible transition toward free, fair elections in September could begin while Mubarak remained in power. Protesters are adamant that Mubarak must go now; they have campaigned for days, at times met with violence in images seen around the world. The latest rally in Cairo on Friday drew roughly 100,000 protesters, and it went off largely peacefully to the enormous relief of U.S. officials. The Obama administration has been talking with top Egyptian officials on the formation of a military-backed caretaker government that could prepare the country for new elections, potentially with the 82-year-old Mubarak stepping down and newly appointed Vice President Omar Suleiman in charge for the interim. Suleiman has offered negotiations with all political forces, including the banned fundamentalist Islamic Brotherhood, over constitutional changes needed to ensure a free vote.
Weather woes in Australia
By KRISTEN GELINEAU The Associated Press CAIRNS, Australia — The tail end of one of Australia’s largest-ever cyclones was felt at the other end of the country today, as wild storms lashed Melbourne with destructive winds and flash flooding. Many parts of Australia have suffered a summer of awful weather, including pounding rains across northeastern Queensland state that caused the nation’s worst flooding in decades, killing 35 people and causing an estimated $5.6 billion damage. The tropical low that was Cyclone Yasi, which hit the northeast earlier this week, was active over central Australia and making a series of thunderstorms over the southern city of Melbourne and other large towns in Victoria state much worse, the Bureau of Meteorology said. More than 7 inches (175 millimeters) of rain fell in just a few hours overnight Friday in some Melbourne neighborhoods and winds gusting to 80 mph (130 kph) knocked down trees, the Bureau of Meteorology said. Drains were overwhelmed, causing flash flooding that covered streets and swamped some homes. The State Emergency Service said 84 people were rescued from cars that stalled in flooded streets, or from inundated properties. A 26-year-old English tourist was taken to

a hospital after part of a tree fell on the tent she was camping in, SES spokesman David Tucek said. Towns in the northwest of the state were also hit by the bad weather, which was a combination of the remnants of Yasi and a series of powerful storm cells in the southeast, the bureau said. Yasi ripped across the coast near Cairns on Wednesday night, ripping apart dozens of homes and damaging hundreds more, cutting power to tens of thousands of people and flattening millions of dollars worth of crops. Just one death was reported. Residents and officials were amazed the death toll was not higher. The storm thrashed the coast with up to 170 mph (280 kph) winds and sent waves crashing ashore two blocks into seaside communities, as tens of thousands of people huddled in evacuation centers. Electricity and phone service were gradually being restored, and some 4,000 troops were marshaled to help clear roads of downed trees, power lines and twisted metal roofs torn from homes. Efforts were hampered by drenching rain in many parts of the disaster zone. Because Australia’s far northeast is sparsely populated, Yasi, despite its size, didn’t hit any major cities as it charged across the continent. But the isolation was making cleanup more difficult, as authorities struggled to reach outof-the-way towns.
Mosque plot suspect fires lawyer in middle of court
DEARBORN, Mich. — The California man accused of plotting to blow up a Detroitarea mosque rejected his court-appointed counsel Friday, upset that the attorney is a Shiite Muslim and a “patron” of the Islamic center where he was arrested. Roger Stockham, 63, standing in handcuffs and wearing an olive drab jail-issued jumpsuit in a Dearborn courtroom, rejected defense attorney Mark Haidar and was appointed a new attorney during a hearing to determine whether there is probable cause to try him. The hearing was then delayed until next Friday so that new attorney Matthew Evans could prepare. Stockham, who has described himself as a Vietnam War vet-turned-Islamic holy warrior, has a history of violent run-ins with the law dating back to the 1970s. He faces charges of making a false report or threat of terrorism and one count of pos-

sessing explosives with an unlawful intent after being arrested Jan. 24 near the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn. “I reject my appointed counsel. He is a Shiite,” Stockham said, referring to a sect of Islam practiced at the Dearborn mosque, one of the nation’s largest. “He is a patron of the mosque.” There are two main sects within Islam, Shiite and Sunni. The schism between Sunni and Shiite stems from the early days of Islam and arguments over the Prophet Muhammad’s successors as the faith’s spiritual leader. Haidar didn’t attend Friday’s hearing because he was out of town. In a telephone interview, he said he had told Stockham about his faith and that he has attended services at the mosque. He said he was surprised by Stockham’s decision. “The judge probably shouldn’t be listening to someone with his mental history,” Haidar said. “I would think he shouldn’t be the one making the decision at this point.”
