Ohio job growth in Jan. strongest in 11 years
COLUMBUS (AP) — A recovering economy brought Ohio’s 11th straight month of falling unemployment and its biggest monthly increase in hiring in more than a decade, officials said Friday as a state report paralleled a decrease in unemployment nationwide. Ohio employers other than farms added 31,900 workers to their payrolls in January, the largest gain in a single month since 1999, said Ben Johnson, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Service providers, especially professional and business services, led the hiring surge, which Johnson said was typical in an economy coming out of a recession. Jeanne Farmer, Ohio regional director for the staffing services company Manpower Inc., said employers are turning to companies to such as hers because they’re being “cautiously optimistic.” “Sometimes they will use temporary associates because they want to see if the recovery is going to hold,” Farmer said. Other industries that saw job gains in Ohio dur-

A spaghetti dinner and raffle will be held from 3-7 p.m. Sunday at the Delphos American Legion post to benefit David Friemoth. Friemoth was recently diagnosed with cancer and needs help with the cost of medical treatment. Dinners are $6. 50/50 tickets will also be avaialble. The Ottoville Music Boosters will sponsor its annual Steak Dinner from 11 a.m to 1 p.m. on Sunday in the Ottoville School auditeria.

ing January included utilities, health care, and leisure and hospitality. Government was the big loser, with public employment shrinking by 1,200 jobs. The state’s unemployment rate for the month slipped to 9.4 percent, down from a revised 9.5 percent in December. Joblessness has declined each month since February 2010, when it stood at the highest level in more than a quarter century, said Johnson, who noted that last year’s high has been revised to 10.6 percent, down from the previously reported 11 percent. The number of workers unemployed in Ohio in January was 551,000, down from 560,000 in December, the Department of Job and Family Services reported. The ranks of out-of-work Ohioans have decreased by 75,000 in the past 12 months. Ohio’s upbeat jobs news came the same day the federal Labor Department reported that U.S. employers hired in February at the fastest clip in nearly a year, while the national unemployment rate fell to 8.9 percent — a nearly two-year low.

Ottawa prepares for possible round 2

Ottawa residents are preparing for the worst by moving things out of their Main Street buildings Friday. Shown above are crews moving the remaining office equipment out of the former Job and Family Services building on Main Street next to the Courthouse. The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for the area and predicted 1.5 to 2 inches of rainfall between now and Sunday. If this hold true, the Blanchard River should crest somewhere below the “moderate” flood stage of 27 feet on Monday.

Fischer shares trip to Alaska
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — In July 2006, Judy and Vern Fischer went on vacation. Instead of heading south to the tropics or boarding a cruise ship, they flew to Anchorage, Alaska. From there, they embarked on a trip that would showcase the state’s beauty and native history. Judy Fischer delivered a program detailing her 10-day trip to the nation’s largest state Monday night at the Delphos Public Library. “We went with my brother, Fr. Herb Weber, and his friend, Fr. Mike Brown. We booked lodging beforehand and mostly stayed in bed and breakfasts,” said Judy Fischer. “We didn’t visit Juneau or Sitka. We flew from Detroit to Anchorage and then rented a car and drove to Seward and the Kenai Peninsula and then to Denali and then to Fairbanks and came back to Anchorage. We learned a lot about the native people, the gold rush and got to see the pipeline.” Fischer said Native Alaskan culture was one of the most interesting things they learned about. “There are, I think, 11 distinct native cultures in Alaska and what distinguishes them from each

other is the differences in the languages they speak,” she said. “There were areas where you could see the mixing of the native culture and the Russian Orthodox religion and it was really neat to see the blending. The natives were first discovered to be there in the 1600s, but we know they had to be there for a long time before that. Then the Russians came in the 1800s and brought their religion. You can see graveyards outside Russian Orthodox churches where natives buried their loved ones. Because they had no written language, they marked their graves with spirit houses, which they painted with

“We were talking to this one native man and he mentioned he was about to leave for vacation. I told him ‘well, we’re here on vacation, so where are you going?’ and he said ‘the real Alaska.’ He meant the wild parts, the ones you can only reach by plane or dog sled.”

the same design the person painted their house with.” Some of the other things they saw were, as Fischer put it, tourist traps. “We went to a gold mine and got to pan for gold,” she said. “It was definitely a tourist-trap type of attraction but it was fun and it did give us a good idea of

the history of the Alaskan gold rush. The wildlife was neat to see, too, mostly in Denali. There were bald eagles and otters, seals. The main cause of car wrecks in Alaska is moose. They’re also the cause of dog sled wrecks.” Fischer said they drove around the state for 10 days but barely got a glimpse of the massive piece of land. “The state is so vast that each person who lives there could have their own square mile of land if you spaced them out,” she said. “We were there in the summer, so when we landed at midnight it was like dusk. When we connected with my husband’s cousin who lives up there, we were sitting on their deck at 11 p.m. wearing sunglasses. Likewise in the winter, there’s only two hours of daylight. They have a higher rate of depression and suicide there during the winter because of seasonal depression. Sometimes Fairbanks gets to -40 degrees and the hardiness of the people is really amazing. Even if it’s -40 out, they’ll bundle up and go do what they need to.”

stop the gum madness
I can remember when I was young and asked for a piece of gum. My mom would dive in to her purse up to her elbows, rustle around and pull out a half-stick of Doublemint. “Here,” she would say. “You don’t need more than this anyway.” Really?! It was never enough. You didn’t have enough to blow bubbles and sometimes you would bite the inside of your mouth while chewing it because it was so small. I used to love Bazooka bubble gum. You could collect the funnies and send them in for what really amounted to junk but was a treasure to a kid. All in all, gum at that time really didn’t hold its flavor well. After about 15 minutes, it was time for a new piece. Less if your mom gave you that carefully-halved piece from her purse. Then came Hubba-Bubba, Bubblicious and Bubble-Yum. Big, fat, juicy pieces of gum. You really only needed one piece but, oh, what fun it was to stuff two or three in and have the juice run down your chin as you tried to chew and keep it all in your mouth while getting it ready for giant, sticky bubbles. I remember my dad used to delight in popping them just as they were getting really big and they would splat on my face. My hubby has a fondness for hard-dip bubble gum ice cream. It’s ice cream with little pieces of gum throughout. I enjoy some now and then. Not everyone appreciates gum-chewers. Teachers really don’t care for it and most employers don’t see much use for it. We’ve all been called out for it by someone. We’ve found the sticky residue under tables, chairs, desks and other hiding places. We’ve stepped in it and lamented the TRIPOLI, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi’s regime struck back at its opponents with a powerful attack Friday on the closest opposition-held city to Tripoli and a barrage of tear gas and live ammunition to smother new protests in the capital. At least 37 people died in fighting and in an explosion at an ammunitions depot in Libya’s rebellious east. The bloodshed signaled an escalation in efforts by both sides to break the deadlock that has gripped Libya’s 18-day upheaval, which has lasted longer than the Egyptian revolt that led to the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak and inspired a wave of protests across the region. So far, Gadhafi has had

For The Record Ohio ex-cop’s recent death The Delphos linked to 1979 shooting Herald COLUMBUS (AP) — The and under the influence at
death of a former Columbus police officer this year was a homicide linked to a convenience store shooting 31 years ago that left the officer paralyzed from the waist down, a coroner has ruled. Tom Hayes was shot in the back during a scuffle in the store a week before Christmas in 1979. He died Jan. 20, and Franklin County Coroner Jan Gorniak’s ruling came Thursday. Investigators must determine whether to file another charge against the man who spent almost 24 years in prison for Hayes’ shooting, Franklin County prosecutor Ron O’Brien told The Columbus Dispatch. That man, Ronald McClary, was 16 when he shot Hayes. He was tried as an adult on charges of felonious assault and carrying a concealed weapon and was released from prison in 2004. Hayes had gone to the store the night of the shooting at about 2:25 a.m. to check on a report of a disturbance, and the scuffle began when he tried to arrest McClary and another teen on a curfew violation. Tourt testimony showed McClary had been drinking, smoking marijuana and using LSD, the Dispatch reported. Don Wolery, who has represented McClary in the matter, said Friday that it was “a highly emotional case and tragic for both families.” He said McClary was young the time and did not intend to harm the officer. He said McClary’s family is concerned as O’Brien reviews the case. “Any time a prosecutor is looking at charging someone with murder, there are concerns, especially after someone’s served 25 years,” he said. O’Brien said charging and convicting McClary with murder would not guarantee that he’d serve more jail time.

stringy, sticky mess. There’s nothing like stepping in a ooey, gooey, warm piece of gum on a hot summer day and not realizing it until you’ve already spread the joy around the floorboards of your car. In the last several days, I bet I have taken no less than 8 pieces of ABC gum from my puppy. While I can’t blame him for wanting to experience what I’m sure smells very sweet and tasty, I’m not sure it’s in his tummy’s best interest. What the heck? Where are all these people who feel the need to spit their gum out in my yard? There must be a “pack” of them running around doing nothing but chewin’ and spittin’. Over the years, I have found a lot of things in my yard — beer bottles, empty packs of cigarettes, plastic grocery bags, firecracker remnants after the 4th of July — a lot of garbage. This is, however, the first time I have ever found gum; let alone what constitutes nearly a whole pack — already chewed. Needless to say, I am less than pleased by this process. There will come a time little Ringo will snatch a piece and I won’t know it and it will end up spread around my house. Makes me mad just thinking about. I’m not a hater. I don’t want everyone to stop chewing gum. Just put it where it belongs — under your kitchen table or on your bedpost at home. Mom will be so proud. In the morning, troops from the elite Khamis Brigade — named after the Gadhafi son who commands it — bombarded the city’s western edges with mortar shells, heavy machine guns, tanks and anti-aircraft weapons, several residents said. By the evening, another brigade had opened a front on the eastern side. Armed Zawiya citizens backed by allied army units were fighting back. The commander of the rebel forces — Col. Hussein Darbouk — was killed by fire from an anti-aircraft gun, said Alaa al-Zawi, an activist in the city. Darbouk was a colonel in Gadhafi’s army who defected along with other troops in Zawiya early in the uprising.

Gadhafi forces battle rebels as 37 killed
little success in taking back territory, with several rebel cities repelling assaults and the entire eastern half of the country under rebel control. But the opposition forces have seemed unable to go on the offensive to march on proGadhafi areas. Meanwhile, in Tripoli — Gadhafi’s most important bastion — his loyalists have waged a campaign of terror to ensure that protesters do not rise up in significant numbers. Friday’s assault on the rebel city of Zawiya, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) west of Tripoli, appeared to be the strongest yet by Gadhafi’s forces after repeated earlier forays against it were beaten back.

Second Chances

Delphos quilters honor organ donors
BY RACHEL LEWIS Lifeline of Ohio them, agreed to help with the project and created four quilts in their first year. The quilts were a labor of love for the sisters-in-law, who volunteered their time and acquired donated materials from local Wal-Mart stores for the project. Donor families created the memory squares, including pictures of their loved ones or quotes and symbols that were important to them. Neumeier and Nijak weave dozens of squares together for each quilt, making every panel unique. “It’s amazing to see the people who have donated,” said Neumeier. The quilt project is especially important to Neumeier, whose mother, Celeste Broecker, received a kidney transplant in 1998. Broecker lived eight more years thanks to a deceased donor, a gift her family cherishes. By volunteering her time to create quilts that honor donors, Neumeier pays that gift forward. In the past 13 years, Nijak and Neumeier have made 11 quilts for Lifeline of Ohio. Nijak moved to Indiana in 2004 but the two still work together, estimating that each quilt takes three months to complete. “It’s an honor and a privilege to be able to do this to make people more aware of

STATE/LOCAL

The American quilt has, for generations, captured the spirit and emotions of its creators. An art form born of necessity, the modern quilt has become a vehicle for interpreting our connection between the past and present. The Donate Life community honors that connection through the creation of patchwork quilts. Hundreds of quilts have been made by organ procurement organizations across the country to memorialize the individuals who have passed on the “Gift of Life” to others through organ and tissue donation. Many of them have been made right here in Delphos, Ohio. In 1998, Joanie Nijak and Lois Neumeier of the Black Swamp Quilters connected with Lifeline of Ohio, the nonprofit promoting organ and tissue donation in central and southeastern Ohio, at the Canal Days quilt show. “A representative asked if we’d be willing to make quilts to honor donors,” said Neumeier. “She said it was their dream to have quilts made.” Nijak and Neumeier, who Joanie Nijak, left, and Lois Neumeier pose with the “Shine On” quilt they completed have more than 70 years of in 2011. quilting experience between

organ donation,” said Nijak. Though Lifeline of Ohio’s quilts feature donors from central and southeastern Ohio, they travel from the coast to coast and are so popular, at least one is on display somewhere every day of the year. “We’re hoping people really appreciate them,” said Neumeier. Donor memorial quilts can be requested for community events and are provided free of charge. To request a quilt for your next event, or to learn more contact Lifeline of Ohio in central and southeastern Ohio (800) 525-5667 or www.lifelineofohio.org or Life Connection of Ohio in northwestern Ohio (800) 262-5443 or www.lifeconnectionfohio.org.

AAA3 celebrates National Nutrition Month
March is National Nutrition Month and this year’s theme is “Eat Right with Color.” Area Agency on Aging 3 (AAA3) is promoting eating right with color in conjunction with the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP). Seniors 60 years of age and older and have a household income of $20,147 or less for 1 person, $27,214 or less for 2 people, or $34,281 or less for 3 people, can apply to receive $50 in coupons to redeem for local fresh produce at participating farm stands and farm market booths. Beginning March 14, applications will be mailed to last year’s participants. These forms will also be made available at local councils on aging and posted on our web site at aaa3.org. It is a first-come, first-served program due to the limited number of slots. Completed applications will be accepted by mail only. Eligible home-bound seniors can designate a “personal shopper” to go to the farm stand, redeem the coupons and get the produce to the senior for consumption.

Very low income 65 percent of County Media Annual Income $25,959 $29,656 $33,353 $37,050 $40,016 $42,981 $45,947 $48,913

Assistance may also be available for foreclosure prevention counseling and possible rescue funds for mortgage payments to help those eligible homeowners facing foreclosure. Low and very-low income homeowners may qualify for up to $30,000 worth of repairs to be completed on their home. Payment for rehabilitation is partially accomplished through a grant which is forgivable over a ten year period and a deferred loan. The deferred loan has no interest and is repayable at the time of sell, transfer of title, or change in occupancy. Low income 80 percent of County Media Annual Income $31,950 $36,500 $41,050 $45,600 $49,250 $52,900 $56,550 $60,200

The purpose of the Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) is to improve the nutritional health of low-income seniors and to increase business for local farmers. The program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) through the Ohio Department of Aging to increase the provision of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and honey to eligible seniors. Area Agency on Aging 3 is also looking for local donations toward the SFMNP to help us expand and pay for necessary items like printing coupons, signs, and advertising. Of the money received – 90 percent is used for coupons and 10 percent is for additional expenses. All Americans, regardless of age, should be getting more fruits and vegetables in their daily diet. AAA 3 believes a local farmers market is a great place to get fresh, tasty produce and support local farmers. For more information, contact Rhonda Davisson at 419-371-5145 or 1-800-6537723.

“More tears have been shed over men’s lack of manners than their lack of morals.” — Helen Hathaway, American writer (1893-1932)

IT WAS NEWS THEN
One Year Ago • The Delphos Police Department has filled the position of an injured officer by hiring Tyler A. Paugh. Safety Service Director Greg Berquist welcomed him to the force Thursday. Paugh, 22, is a graduate of Hardin Northern High School and the Rhodes State Police Academy. 25 Years Ago — 1986 • Earl Morris, member of the Delphos Country Club Board, announced that the board finalized contract negotiations for golf professional and club manager at the country club. He said the board named Don Cook of Fort Jennings golf pro. The board also issued a contract to Gene Miller of Ottoville on leasing of the clubhouse. • St. John’s senior center Mark Wurst was named to the Associated Press All-Northwest Ohio second team along with Eric Fortman of Columbus. Junior Chad Fast of Spencerville was a third team selection. Receiving special mention were Rod Bowersock of Lincolnview, Alan Syphrit of Jefferson and Mark Von Lehmden of Fort Jennings. • The Ottoville Area Jaycees sponsored their annual TriSkill Basketball contest at the Ottoville gym. Winners were Rick Altenburger, Brad Horstman, Chad Heitmeyer, Nick Langhals, Todd Turnwald, Brad Martz, Eric Beining, Matt Langhals, Brad Calvelage, Scott Hoersten, Nathan Ricker, Jason Grothause, Paul Kroeger, Mike Taylor and Steve Looser. 50 Years Ago — 1961 • Election of officers was conducted by the Ottoville Chapter of the Future Farmers of America Thursday evening during a meeting held in the school’s vo-ag room. The following were named to serve for the ensuing year: Guy Miller, president; Mike Miller, vice president; Richard Hilvers, secretary; Dan Byrne, treasurer; John Herman, reporter; Mark Miller, sentinel; and Dan Miller, historian. • A cagey, speedy Delphos St. John’s Blue Jay squad took the State’s 8th ranked Class A New Knoxville team into camp Friday in the first round of the two-sited sectional basketball tourney played at St. Marys. The Jays scored a 54-44 victory over the New Knoxville Rangers while over at Celina, exBlue Jay Dave Schmelzer’s Minsterites took Marion Local to the tune of 61-42. 75 Years Ago — 1936 • A meeting which will be of interest to a large number of Delphos boys will be held at the American Legion rooms Friday night. Further plans for the organization of the local Sons of Veterans will be made at that time. John Lloyd, post commander of Commemorative Post, No. 268, American Legion, urged that boys who are sons of ex-service men and would like to join be present at this meeting. • Notice has been received at the Delphos Post Office announcing a hearing which is to be held March 30 in room 3835 Munitions Building in Washington. This hearing will be held for the purpose of considering the advisability of constructing a canal to connect Lake Erie and the Ohio River. • Initial steps toward organizing Delphos into a district of Shawnee Area, Boy Scouts of America, were taken at a meeting which was held at the Beckman Hotel Tuesday night. Kenneth Connolly, Scout Executive of the Shawnee Area, explained the purpose and suggested steps be taken to organize a Scout committee locally.

Unemployment dips, jobs added

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON (AP) — Employers hired in February at the fastest pace in almost a year, and the unemployment rate fell to 8.9 percent — a nearly two-year low. The economy added a net 192,000 jobs. Factories, professional and business services, education and health care were among the sectors that hired. Retailers, though, trimmed jobs. State and local governments, squeezed by budget gaps, slashed 30,000 jobs, the most since November. Federal government hiring was flat. Private employers added 222,000 jobs last month, the most since April. That shows companies are feeling more confident about the economy and their own prospects. The job gains bolstered hopes that businesses will hire aggressively through the rest of the year and strengthen the economic recovery. The unemployment rate is now at its lowest point since April 2009. It’s been falling for three months, down from 9.8 percent in November, marking the sharpest threemonth drop since 1983. “These numbers can be sustained and built on,” said Joel Naroff at Naroff Economic Advisors. “Businesses are finally taking some of those profits they are earning and putting them back into the work force.” The number of unemployed people dipped to 13.7 million, still nearly double the number before the recession began in December 2007. When you include parttime workers who’d rather be working full time and people who have given up looking for work, the percentage of “underemployed” people dropped to 15.9 percent in February. That’s the lowest figure in nearly two years. The Labor Department report had little effect on investors, who had generally anticipated Friday’s data. Many seemed more focused on the rise in oil prices. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped more than 60 points in morning trading. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note dipped to 3.52 percent, from 3.56 percent late Thursday. The yield is a widely used benchmark for mortgages and other loans. President Barack Obama’s chief economist, Austan Goolsbee, welcomed the positive news. But Goolsbee cautioned that it will take time to recoup the 7.5 million jobs wiped out by the 2007-2009 recession. The pickup in hiring coincides with gathering strength in the broader economy. Americans shoppers are spending more. U.S. exporters are selling more abroad. Manufacturing is growing at the fastest pace in nearly seven years. And the service sector, which employs about 90 percent of the work force, is expanding at the fastest pace in more than five years. The 192,000 jobs added in February was a sharp improvement from a revised 63,000 job gains in January. Some of the increasing came as people resumed work, after dropping off payrolls because of bad weather in January. Still, the gains were widespread. Factories added 33,000 jobs. Education and health care added 40,000, professional and businesses services 47,000. Leisure and hospitality added 21,000, and transportation and warehousing reported 22,000.

JUST A THOUGHT
My friends Kelly and Eric are having a couples baby shower today. This got me thinking about pregnancy and childbirth and all that fun stuff. Where do I start? My first pregnancy was a “surprise.” I took six e.p.t.s to be sure, assuming the whole shipment must be defective. It wasn’t. Once I accepted the reality, I loved being pregnant. It was an absolute calm, a serenity I’d never experienced before. I had never enjoyed walking into places alone, like a bar or restaurant to meet a friend. When I was pregnant it didn’t bother me – it was like I wasn’t alone. I delighted in feeling the baby kicks from inside me. I’d lie for hours just feeling my protruding belly, wondering what she looked like as she karate chopped in there. As much as I cherished being pregnant, I also hated being pregnant. I was just one giant mood swing. I cried. Every day. At diaper commercials. Radio commercials. Songs about babies. Billboards. Pants I could no longer wear. You name it. I was a weepy, sobby, not-hot mess (although people said I glowed). I did not feel attractive as a pregnant woman. I felt dumpy. The maternity clothing selection out there does not help. I don’t believe women prefer to draw more attention to this shape by tying big bows around it and generally attempting to look like a real, live wedding

cake. Which brings me to the nausea. Oh, the nausea. “Morning sickness” is a load of crap, for one thing. It’s “all day sickness.” Crackers and ginger ale were my best friends. Once it became clear that the end was near and the panic set in, I also had the accompanying “nesting,” as people call it. The night before I gave birth, I made enough food from scratch for my entire apartment complex. And this from a girl who lives on Top Ramen. I didn’t understand but I guess what they say is true about “nesting.” And I hate birds. Making all that food apparently set the labor into motion. Contractions are no joke. I wanted to kill people. Really. Especially the nurse who, when I was having Adele, didn’t manage to acquire the anesthesiologist in time so Adele, much to my horrific dismay, was all natural. Those moms who say you forget all about the pain once you’re holding your newborn baby? Those moms are liars. I can still remember that pain. I remembered it very well when I felt the first contraction with Eleanor and promised my husband I would murder him if he did not make it his life’s objective to get me that epidural this time. He came through. And it was wonderful. I said it then and I’ll say it again – I’d have done anything for that amazing man who walked into the room and

Pregnancy, childbirth and all that fun stuff

on the USS Barbero (a submarine). The ship was docked in Norfolk, Va., where the US Post Office Department created a postal station on the ship. Over 3,000 letters were dispatch to the Barbero and all of the pieces were commemorative cards and covers written from PMG Summerfield – many addressed to the Postmaster General, members of the Universal Postal Union and the President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower (who appointed Summerfield to his current position). The ship left Norfolk and while at sea, directed a missile at Mayport, Florida. The nuclear warhead of the missile was removed and a container of mail was mounted in its place. Twenty minutes later, the missile landed at the Naval Station at Mayport. The mail was then transported to Jacksonville, Fl., for dispatch. Although Postmaster General Summerfield was totally elated and convinced this was the wave of the future, prudent minds determined that the cost was just not practical. There was a rumor once that a missile landed in Mexico City and the Mexican president was not very happy. I don’t know who started that rumor but on occasion, I had used the story myself. My research indicates – “it just ain’t so.” By the way, RocketMail was the name for one of the first major, free web mail services. For a brief time, RocketMail battled with Hotmail for the number-one spot among free web mail services. Yahoo!© acquired RocketMail in 1997, and assimilated it, which is essentially the old RocketMail web mail system. By the way, we had a couple who cannot attend the trip to Gettysburg and DC. Be the lucky ones to grab these seats. Call me 419-303-5482.

with a giant needle took all my pain away and transported me to a languid, babymaking cloud of happiness. If I could get an epidural every day, I would. As far as I know, my friend Kelly wants to have her baby naturally, and honestly, the more power to her. I did feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment after I had Adele without the drugs – the days following I was on a high, like I was a superhero. Of course, they did send me home with some good painkillers which could also explain the high. Regardless, I did it, and Kelly can do it, too. Once they bring that baby to you and you look at that tiny face, those tiny fingers and toes, and hear those tiny baby cries that you created – well, that’s something you will never forget. I can recall exactly how I felt and how perfect and beautiful, ethereal and surreal they were when I saw both of my babies for the first time – indelible flashbulb memories. I can’t wait for Kelly and Eric to experience that for themselves. Congratulations on the impending best chapter of your lives. Sara Berelsman lives in Delphos with her husband Andy and their daughters Adele and Eleanor. She teaches college English and psychology courses and sometimes still wears her Gap maternity clothes they’re comfy.

The Lima Beane Chorus presents ‘Good Old Days’
The Lima Beane Chorus will present its 63rd annual Night of Harmony at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. March 12 at the Lima Civic & Convention Center in downtown Lima. This years theme is “Good Old Days” and will feature the Lima Beane Chorus along with their local quartets. And as usual, the Chorus continues to bring in some of the top quartets available and this year will be no different as we are thrilled to feature the current second-place international medalist quartet OLD SCHOOL, along with a comedy quartet Bustin’ Loose out of the Dayton and Cincinnati area. The show is “G” rated and is a great family show and will feature many songs from the good old days such as “Five Foot Two, Eyes Of Blue,” “By The Light Of The Silvery Moon.” “I’ve Been Workin’ On The Railroad” and many more. Barbershop music, with its close, unaccompanied, four part harmonies, is a unique American folk art. Technically speaking, barbershop harmony is a style of a cappella singing with three voices harmonizing to the melody. The lead usually sings the melody, with the tenor harmonizing above the lead. The bass sings the lowest harmonizing notes and the baritone provides in-between notes, either above or below the lead to make chords (specifically, dominant-type or “barbershop” sevenths) that give barbershop its distinctive, “full” sound. Probably the most distinctive facet of barbershop harmony is the phenomenon known as expanded sound. It is created when the harmonics in the individually tones reinforce each other to produce audible overtones or undertones which create a “fifth voice” and is one of the most thrilling musical sensations you ever experience. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by e-mail or calling Show Chairman Terry Reichenbach at terryr@fairpoint.net or 419-306-0374 or through the Civic & Convention Center Box Office at 419-224-1552.

St. John’s Geise buries free throws for rally win
By Kirk Dougal Times Bulletin Editor kdougal@timesbulletin.com VAN WERT - It is a shame that someone had to lose the game. Delphos St. John’s and Crestview are two teams that pride themselves on doing the little things, the blue-collar-bring-a-lunch-pail-andwork-all-day things that must be done to win basketball games. And with two teams that view the game with the same type of intensity, it is only fitting that their game was decided by only one point with less than a second left on the clock. On Friday night at Van Wert High School, St. John’s beat the Knights 44-43 in a Division IV sectional-final game with the lead changing with 14.1 seconds left and a shot rolling off the rim with only .4 remaining. The Blue Jays will now play Minster in a district semifinal matchup at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Wapakoneta High School. After the Knights’ Steven Rickard hit two free throws in the fourth quarter to make the score 43-40, Delphos’ Alex Recker responded by taking the entry pass at the right elbow and driving down the lane for a running 8-footer. That brought the score to 43-42 in favor of Crestview, as Blue Jays coach Aaron Elwer called timeout at the 1:08 mark to set his defense. But then, Crestview inexplicably had an unforced turnover to give the ball back at 47.7 seconds and Delphos took advantage. The Jays ran through their offensive set before giving the ball to sophomore Curtis Geise at the top of the key. Geise drove into the lane and went up for the shot but Rickard was whistled for the foul - his fifth - with only 14.1 seconds left on the clock. Geise, an 81-percent free-throw shooter, hit his first attempt but not before the ball hit every inch of the rim and fell into the net. He hit nothing but cord with the second shot, however, to give his team the slimmest of leads. Crestview coach Jeremy Best called timeout to set a play with eight seconds left. “Steven had fouled out,” said Best. “We got a good shot. We had a ball screen and we thought maybe we could skin off it for a putback in a scramble situation. It just kind of squeezed through our hands on the rebound. We had the look we wanted and everything worked out except for the ball going in. But that’s basketball.” For his part, Elwer just told his players to play smart

steals added with putbacks from Ty Bergfeld and Derek Klaus who provided the lift for Delphos as they won the quarter and narrowed the gap to 31-29 at the end of three, setting up the exciting fourthquarter heroics. “We did enough,” said Coach Elwer. “Our guys who don’t normally score did it. We’ve done that the past three games. We are always going to defend and make it tough so as long as we stay confident offensively, we are a pretty good team.” “(St. John’s) is very good at knocking you off of what you want to do and getting bodies where you want to go,” said Coach Best. “We tried to spread the floor a little bit and play a little faster and we accomplished some things. We put them on the free-throw line a little too much in the second half and they nailed the free throws. The game right now is irrelevant. I’ve got 13 guys in there right now, five seniors, that are tore up. We didn’t win the game but we got a lot of winners in that room right there who wanted to keep playing but it just didn’t happen. I am just real proud of our five seniors. Sixteen wins and two years ago these guys won four games as sophomores, to turn it around, it was awesome and I am so proud of them.” St. John’s was led by Klaus with 10 points and Geise with nine. The Jays made 13-of34 field-goal attempts (34%), with 3-of-15 (33%) shooting beyond the arc. They made 15-of-21 free-throw attempts for a solid 71-percent clip. Crestview’s Rickard led all scorers with 19 points and Gibson chipped in 10. The Knights made 16-of-33 field-goal attempts, a 48-percent effort, including 1-of4 (25%) from 3-point land. They were even better at the charity stripe, going 10-of-13 for 77 percent. St. John’s won the battle of the boards 19-17 but Crestview eked out the turnovers 10-11 in a well-managed game considering the defensive intensity.

Bearcats put Big Green boys out of tournament
By DREW BITTNER Times Bulletin Correspondent VAN WERT – Led by Eli Bowers’ 13 points and a strong defensive effort, the Spencerville Bearcats captured a sectional title on Friday night in Van Wert, taking down the Ottoville Big Green in the Division IV sectional final nightcap, 46-34. It didn’t take long for Spencerville to gain the upper hand against a shorthanded Ottoville squad, as the Bearcats’ strong defense and superior rebounding held the Big Green down. After Scott Pohlman dropped in the first two points of the game for Ottoville, Spencerville rattled off six straight points – four from Bowers – and outscored Ottoville by nine points for the rest of the quarter to take a 13-6 lead after one. “I thought it was important for us to get the lead and I thought we played really well, especially defensively, in the first half,” said Spencerville head coach Kevin Sensabaugh. “Now offensively, we weren’t clicking, but I’m certain our guys are going to figure that part of the floor out soon.” Ottoville cut the lead to five points to open the second quarter of play, but the Big Green went cold after that and only managed four free throws and a single field goal the remainder of the half. “I had us 4-for-20 in the first half and that was my greatest fear,” said Ottoville head coach Tom Von Sossan. “They guard you. They are quick on the perimeter and they do a good job of defending the drive, which is a big part of our game. We had very few good looks tonight because they guard dribble penetration and it is hard to get those looks. They guard about as good as any team we’ve seen this year.” The Bearcats, meanwhile, found their stroke from behind the three-point arc early in the second quarter and carried that to a big halftime advantage. Dan Binkley knocked down two treys and Bowers added another to start Spencerville going in the period and the Bearcats received strong bench play from Derek Goecke and Coleman McCormick as they opened a 28-14 lead at the break. Rebounding proved to be one of the biggest keys in the opening half for Spencerville, who took down ten more boards than Ottoville and used that advantage to get extra looks on offense and limit the Big Green on defense. “I think that was the key to the game,” noted Sensabaugh. “We watched them on film a few times and against Fort Jennings the other night and they really did a good job on the boards. We wanted to make sure they were checked out every possible chance.” The third quarter was an ugly stanza by any account, with neither team breaking into double digits in scoring for the quarter and both teams struggling to get anything going offensively. Spencerville only managed three field goals in the period and the Big Green didn’t fare much better with just four connections. “It was a sloppy second half, but I don’t really care,” explained Sensabaugh. “As long as we get the win, I don’t really care. I told the coaches before [the game], if we win by one or we win by ten, I don’t care as long as we win. That is the most important thing and getting this first tournament game out of the way helps, gets the jitters out, and helps them relax.” One thing that helped Spencerville relax a little in third quarter was Pohlman picking up his fourth foul and being forced to the bench with 3:07 left to play in the third quarter. With Pohlman on the bench in foul trouble and their other leader, Nathan Turnwald, on the bench due to injury, the Big Green looked lost on offense for the rest of the third. They didn’t record a point in the quarter after Pohlman’s exit and found themselves staring at a 35-22 deficit after three. “We got thrown into a pretty adverse situation,” said Von Sossan of Turnwald’s absence and the stretch without Pohlman. “It is more than just losing a player for us because of the position [Turnwald] played and he was a 32-minute guy for us basically every night. We put some people out there tonight who have literally played almost no varsity basketball all year. That was the position we were put in and the kids gave effort. I can’t fault that. We just weren’t good enough. There are no excuses. They beat us with Nathan the first time by 13 points. They are a good ball club.” In the fourth quarter, Spencerville came out firing and rattled off a 9-4 run over the first four minutes. Spencerville’s starters accounted for all of the scoring during the run – led by five from Levi Krouskop – but that was the first time in the contest that the starting five for Spencerville had that complete impact in the game. Spencerville was able to do that because of their clear edge in energy and stamina in the fourth, which was partly due to the foul trouble they found themselves in, but also because of the strength of the Bearcats’ bench.

St. John’s senior Austin Vogt battles Crestview senior Rob Cook for a rebound Friday night at Van Wert in boys sectional action. Vogt scored five points off the bench as the Blue Jay bench outscored the Knights’ 15-0 but it took two late free throws by sophomore Curtis Geise to give the Jays a 43-42 sectional-final win. in the last few seconds. “We were just playing our base defense,” he said. “They were in the bonus so we had to play intelligent defense and level off and try to keep them out of the paint and contest shots. Most of all just rebound because a lot of times you see a putback win.” Crestview’s Nick Adam took the pass at the left elbow extended and dribbled across the top of the key before picking up a screen and driving the lane. Two Blue Jays dropped off on helpside defense as he went up for his shot which hit the backboard and the rim before trickling off the right side. It appeared the Knights’ Rob Cook got most of a hand on the ball but a Blue Jay player managed to swipe at it and the ball went straight down - striking Adam who had fallen after his shot - and then went out of bounds. With only .4 seconds remaining, St. John’s had the ball and the game. It did not look like the contest was going to be that close at the beginning. Crestview came out on fire and quickly jumped out to a lead after a 6-0 run during which Delphos only took one shot. Cook was strong in the middle with six points on putbacks while Rickard added seven on two drives and a 3-pointer. Meanwhile, St. John’s struggled on anything outside of the paint and trailed after one, 15-8. It was the only quarter the Jays would lose. The second quarter was a offensive struggle for both teams as the defenses extended out farther onto the court, denying the entry passes and making each other take difficult shots. Alex Clark and AJ Klausing both hit treys for Delphos as they narrowed the lead to 23-18 at the half. If it was possible, the defensive intensity picked up even more in the third period. “We challenged our guys at halftime and we did so much better in the second half (on defense),” said Coach Elwer. “We made an adjustment at halftime that we would go get (Rickard) and try to speed the game up. Our guys were aggressive and tough and I give them a lot of credit.” Geise, who averaged 16 points per game this season but was held scoreless in the first half, finally cracked the scoreboard with four free throws in the period. Dallis Gibson did the damage for Crestview with a mid-range jumper and a transition lay up for four markers of his own but it was Scott Klausing doubling-down and getting

Antalis’ heroics sends Jefferson on to district
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com WAPAKONETA — Jefferson coach Marc Smith challenged his team to make a play in overtime. That they did. Senior Logan Bonifas, limited by first-half foul trouble, came up with a late steal and fellow senior Mitchell Antalis came up with a putback as time expired to give the Wildcats a come-frombehind 69-67 overtime victory in Division III sectional boys basketball Friday at Wapakoneta. Jefferson (12-9), which trailed by 12 at one point in the second quarter, had battled back to knot the game at 62 and force an extra four minutes. The Redskins (1110) drew first blood on a pair of free trows by senior Cory Siefring (14 markers, 9 boards, 3 assists, 3 steals) at 2:46 but Jefferson senior Ryan Ebbeskotte (28 counters, 7 assists, 6 boards, 5 steals) answered those with two of his own at 2:23, fouling out Redskin junior Nate Uhlenhake (3 assists). Junior Nick Dunlap gave the Wildcats their first lead since the first period with 1-of-2 free throws at 2:05. The teams traded turnovers and Siefring took a mid-court steal the other way for a layup at 1:18 and a 1-point edge. The Wildcats committed the last of their 20 turnovers (15 for St. Henry) and junior Craig Knapke was fouled at 1:08, sending him to the line for two. He hit the first but not the second and the Wildcats tied it up with 55 ticks on the clock on a Bonifas (11 points - all in the second half - 10 boards) drive. The Redskins ran down the clock — calling their final timeout in the process — but committed their final miscue of the game — and the year — with nine ticks left. Bonifas got it and took off for the other end; his short 5-footer from the left baseline was off but bounced to the other side, where Antalis was Johnnyon-the-spot with his putback off the glass as time expired. “In that last time, I challenged the kids to make a play. Logan did; you didn’t see the real Logan in the first half because of foul trouble,” Smith explained. “Then Mitchell made a play. We battled and battled all game long against a good St. Henry team. Logan is a winner and everybody on this team is a winner. Mitchell never came out; we gutted this one out.” Antalis was hustling to get there. “Logan made a great play and I just happened to be in the right spot,” Antalis noted. “We’re used to be down at the half, so coming back is nothing new for us. We’re used to being smaller but they were hurting us on the boards, especially second shots. We just had to keep fighting.” The Redskins had the best of the early going, using their inside game to control the smaller Wildcats, though Delphos had an 8-4 edge on a 3-point play by junior Nick Dunlap. The Redskins shot 8-of-14 in the opening stanza (27-of-58 for the night, 3-of12 long range, for 46.6% vs. Jefferson’s 25-of-48, 5-of-8 long distance, for 52.1%), With the 6-4 Knapke (13 counters) netting six points. When Uhlenhake slipped in a 3-ball from the left wing with a tick on the board, their lead was 17-10. The Redskins continued to control the proceedings into the second stanza, getting out to a 24-12 advantage as Siefring scored inside. However, the Redskins were also piling up fouls and putting the Wildcats at the line. Though the Wildcats didn’t exactly take advantage of the largesse, hitting 2-of-8 singles in the second canto (14-of-22 overall for 63.5% vs. 10-of-16 for the Redskins for 62.5%), they started to get some headway against the switching St. Henry defense. When Antalis (9 markers, 4 boards) hit a baseline jumper with 5.2 ticks on the board, the Wildcats were back within 28-23. Dunlap helped carry the Wildcats as the junior dropped in 10 of his 14 counters the first half. “It’s nothing new for us to be at a size disadvantage. We’ve learned not to use it as an excuse,” Smith continued. “We challenged everybody at the half, like Logan and Mitchell, to stay positive and keep working hard. I’m a firm believer that good things will come if you keep at it and good things came our way. What a great effort on the part of all of our kids.” Ebbeskotte, who also played the entire 36 minutes, was instrumental in leading his club back. He started to catch fire in the third period. He was either delivering at the basket (9 markers) or setting up teammates such as Bonifas (4 points), senior Nick Cook (a 3) and Dunlap (a 3). In fact, when Dunlap downed a trifecta from the right corner with 2.2 ticks on the board, the Wildcats were within 46-44. Jefferson shot 9-of-14 in the span.

St. Henry did outrebound the Wildcats 36-29 (10-05 offensive) as Kyle Stahl (15 counters) added eight for the Redskins and freshman Ross Thompson added six for the Wildcats. St. Henry ended up with 20 fouls and Jefferson 15. The Wildcats advance to take on Ottawa-Glandorf, who defeated LibertyBenton Friday, at 6:15 p.m. Wednesday at Elida. In the opener at Wapakoneta Friday, Lima Central Catholic (18-3) had little trouble in dispatching Coldwater (6-16) 69-40. The Thunderbirds shot 28-of-58 from the field (4-of-13 downtown) for 48.3 percent and 9-of-15 singles (60%) as Bubba Krieg led with 17 markers and Austin Stolly added 12. They grabbed 35 boards (12 offensive) as Tyler O’Connor nabbed eight and Krieg six (5 steals). They totaled seven miscues and 15 fouls. The Cavaliers were a cold 14-of-47 (6-of-24 trifectas) for 29.8 percent and 6-of-12 from charity (50%) as Kevin Timmerman scored 11. They secured 32 caroms (12 offensive) as Timmerman had seven and Austin Bruns six, to go with four assists. They amassed 17 errors and 11 fouls. LCC will tussle with Patrick Henry in game two Wednesday at Elida.

St. Henry had no answer for Jefferson senior Ryan Ebbeskotte, who made a living with short pull-up jumpers like this against Redskins Alex Post and Craig Knapke. His 28 points helped the Wildcats rally from a 12-point second-quarter deficit to win a lastsecond OT thriller 69-67. Ebbeskotte tied it up on a transition hoop from the free-throw line at 7:40 but they couldn’t get the lead then. The Redskins seemed to re-assert control, getting back to a 55-48 edge on an inside basket by junior Caleb Heitkmap (14 markers, 10 boards, 3 blocks), forcing Smith to call time at 4:49. Still, the Redskins added one more point to their lead by the 3-minute mark as Knapke made it 51-53 before the Wildcats made a comeback in earnest. Two Ebeskottee drives, followed by two Bonifas free throws at 2:09, got them within 61-60. The Tedskins, who never got to the line the first half but started out 6-of-6 in the second half, failed at the line, missing five of their last six in the last 2:23 of regulation. Heitkamp hit the second-of-2 at 1:18 to give the Redskins a 62-60 edge. The Wildcats could not convert on two good looks but Uhlenhake missed two huge free throws at 31.8 seconds, setting up Ebbeskotte to be fouled with 22 ticks left. The senior calmly swished both to knot the game at 62. The Redskins ran down the clock and Heitkamp tried a 15-footer from the left baseline that was off the mark as time expired. “Ryan is a great, great player. If he were at a bigger school, more people would know about him, but unfortunately, we aren’t a bigger school,” Smith added. “Those who have watched us all year know who he is, though. He does it all for us: not just scoring but rebounding, setting people up, playing great defense, playing inside or out. He is our second all-time leader in assists and steals.”

Kenseth wins Las Vegas pole with track record
By JENNA FRYER The Associated Press LAS VEGAS — Matt Kenseth was all too aware of his lousy qualifying record and even with a fast car, he figured he’d screw up his Friday lap around Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He didn’t, though, instead turning a flawless lap at 188.884 mph to set a track record. It was the fifth pole of Kenseth’s career, first since Darlington in 2009. “Five in 12 years? That’s a little better than I thought,” he deadpanned. “Qualifying is not my strong suit but I knew we had a really fast car. Honestly this is the most nervous I have been before qualifying in probably five years because I knew we had a shot at the pole. I didn’t want to mess up a fast car.” Kenseth, who broke Kurt Busch’s year-old qualifying record of 188.719, will attempt to break his 72-race winless streak in Sunday’s race. His last victory was in 2009 at California. Marcos Ambrose qualified second, while Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle — Kenseth’s teammates at Roush Fenway Racing — allowed Ford to sweep the top four spots. All of them are powered by Roush engines. Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch and Joey Logano qualified fifth and sixth. Busch, the current points leader, was briefly on the pole and trying to make sure he or Kurt Busch won the top starting spot for the fourth consecutive year. Instead, Ambrose knocked Busch down a spot with a quick lap that lifted the Australian’s spirits after a disappointing start to his first season with Richard Petty Motorsports. “My team has really supported me through a slow start,” Ambrose said. “I felt some pressure coming in here and I really wanted to step up.” AJ Allmendinger, Ambrose’s teammate, qualified seventh and was followed by Ryan Newman in a Chevrolet, Martin Truex Jr. in a Toyota and Mark Martin in a Chevrolet. David Ragan, whose Ford was one of the fastest cars during practice, spun on his qualifying lap and failed to post a time. He will start Sunday’s race from the 42nd position. Kurt Busch, last year’s pole winner, was the highest qualifying Dodge at 22nd. Brian Keselowski failed to qualify for the 43-car field. Slow car for Kurt Busch stalls Las Vegas hype: A seven-year age gap prevented Kurt and Kyle Busch from racing against each other for championships as they were growing up in Las Vegas. Now stars in NASCAR, their early season results have many wondering if this could be the year the Busch brothers battle for the Sprint Cup title. They returned to home track Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Friday ranked first and second in the standings, with Kyle holding a 3-point lead over older brother, Kurt. They are the only two drivers to nab top-10 finishes in the season’s first two races. “I think it would be great for us two to battle each other,” Kurt said. “Every time there is a Chase we are involved in together, it seems to draw more attention. If we could do this for a season-long battle, it definitely would draw more attention to what two brothers are doing out there on the race track. You see the Williams sisters play against each other in tennis, you see every now and then the (Mannings) play against each other. There’s all that extra attention and hype around it.” The brothers have yet to be at the same level at the same time in NASCAR. Kurt won the inaugural 2004 Chase for the Championship and while Kyle has flirted with the Cup, he’s yet to put together a complete 10-race Chase. The closest they’ve ever been in the final standings was 2007, when Kyle finished fifth and Kurt finished seventh. But it’s been Kyle who’s emerged as the annual title contender, racking up 16 races over the last four years to Kurt’s seven victories. One of those wins was at Las Vegas in 2008, when Kyle became the first Busch to visit Victory Lane here. It was a monumental moment for the Busch family, who watched the track develop as children. Kurt, who is winless at Las Vegas, admitted Friday there’s a twinge of resentment that his little brother was the victor. “The fact that he’s won here, yeah, it stings a little bit,” Kurt said. “I’ve been on pole here, he’s been on pole, and it’s Vegas, one of the top five marquee events of the year. With him winning here, it was great for our family and all the friends who have supported us over the years. “I just want to be able to do it as well.” There’s been hope that the brothers would stage a showdown Sunday in pursuit of the victory. But Kurt downplayed that possibility because his Dodge was less than impressive all day Friday. “It just seems like we’ve been off since we unloaded the car,” he said. “We’re just heading back with everything to how we ran this race one year ago. Maybe that’s something we need to do, just get back to some of the basics. This has been a tough track for me over the years, with engine failures and getting caught up in wrecks. We just hope for a nice smooth run this time around.” Kurt’s average finish at Las Vegas is 21.9 and he hasn’t finished higher than 23rd the past four years. He qualified 22nd in Friday’s session, marking the lowest qualifying effort of his 10 previous visits home. Kyle, meanwhile, qualified fifth, and took a moment to note the significance of this weekend for his family. “Coming to Vegas and leading the points ... it’s cool, it’s a great opportunity for both of us to be leading coming to the hometown,” Kyle added. “I don’t know that there’s any added pressure, but there’s definitely some resilience there where we’re feeling blessed to be in the position we’re in.”

Bearcats

(Continued from page 6) and McCormick giving the Bearcats solid and purposeful minutes, Spencerville proved it has the depth to do strong things in the tourney. “They did [play well],” praised Sensabaugh. “In watching practice the last couple of weeks, I’ve noticed that some of the younger guys are getting a little better right now. We figured we need to get guys a rest, it’s late in the season, and so we got them in there. They did a great job.” Despite staring at a 44-26 lead, Ottoville refused to mail things in and made the game somewhat interesting late. After Pohlman and Luke Schimmoeller converted on back-to-back three-point plays and Pohlman connected on another field goal, Ottoville had cut the score to 44-34 with only two minutes remaining and looked to have the makings of a final run in them. However, those would be the last points Ottoville would manage and, in the end, the only other scoring would come from two free throws by Bowers as Spencerville claimed the 46-34 victory. “We haven’t been consistent offensively all year,” explained Von Sossan. “In the second half, we got a little rhythm going, but not consistently enough to get back in it. We just didn’t shoot the ball well all year. That was

the one thing that kept us from taking the next step. We played with virtually everyone, but we barely touched 40 percent [in field goal percentage] on the year and it is so hard to win basketball games when you do that.” Bowers led all scorers with 13 points on the game and Binkley added 10 points for Spencerville. Pohlman led Ottoville with 12 points. Ottoville ends its season with an 8-14 mark, while Spencerville moves on with a 13-8 mark. The Bearcats get New Knoxville in the opening round of district play next week, the second contest at Wapakoneta.

Lady Jays, Jeffcats Musser ousted from state wrestling battle for regional berth
By DEANN HEIING The Delphos Herald By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com Expect a matchup of styles in tonight’s girls Division IV district-final clash between Jefferson (20-2) and St. John’s (17-5) at 7 p.m. at Lima Senior. The Blue Jays lead the alltime series 7-2 but that doesn’t matter in this go-round. The Lady Wildcats will try to make this an up-tempo, all-court game, according to mentor Dave Hoffman. “That’s when we are at our best; when we are getting transition looks, especially off of our pressure defense. We’re not as good in a halfcourt set, though we’ve been working on that all season,” Hoffman noted. “We aren’t the tallest team in the world; we have rarely been bigger than our opponents but I figure we have been quicker than almost all of them and try to use our quickness to counter any size disadvantage. “However, we know that St. John’s had built a reputation over the years for their great defense. They’ve also got some girls that can hit the perimeter shot consistently, like (Becca) Saine, (Courtney) Grothouse and (Jessica) Recker. They have a nice, strong inside player in (Tiffany) Geise and though they definitely miss (the injured Shelby) Reindel, (Katie) Vorst seems to be coming into her own.” The game plan for Blue Jay counterpart Dan Grothouse will be to neutralize the Lady Wildcat speed with his own team’s strengths, though it won’t be easy. “That is one thing Jefferson does well, among many others; they don’t allow you to get comfortable with their defense. We feel we have a strength inside but they won’t make it easy for us to utilize that strength,” Grothouse noted. “Even when you beat the press, they can get you coming from behind. Offensively, (Kristin) Klausing and (Kennedy) Boggs are the two main cogs that seem to set the pace for them. I don’t think you can completely stop this offense; you have to really work to contain them and keep things in front of you. “The key for us is to stay in control and not lose our composure against the press. You can seem to be in control and then they can quickly run off 12-14 points in a row. That is what we have to avoid tonight.” Both coaches are aware of what the environment will be all about. “It’s a big game to begin with, playing your neighbors. With a district title and a trip to regional on the line, you have to be careful your aren’t too keyed up,” Grothouse added. Hoffman doesn’t see any problem getting his girls motivated. “With all that’s on the line tonight, I don’t anticipate being mentally or physically ready to play. It should be a great crowd and a great game,” he added. COLUMBUS — It was down to “win-or-go-home” time for St. John’s senior Ryan Musser at the 2010-11 Division III State Wrestling Championships Friday at the Jerome Schottenstein Center. After going 1-1 Thursday, he was still in position to be on the podium come Saturday night but he needed to get through his first opponent Friday, Joe Kosky of Bellaire St. John’s Central Catholic, in the 140-pound consolation round. He came out strong in his match with Kosky (38-3) but he fell short, losing an exciting overtime battle 7-5. They were tied 0-0 after the first period. Starting the second period, Kosky had choice of positions. He deferred to Musser, who chose the down position, what ended up being a good choice for Musser, since he quickly got an escape, making it 1-0. The third period began with Ryan in the top position. He turned his opponent to his back and earned three nearfall points. However, Kosky

Musser/state — Ryan Musser crouches and looks ready to pounce against Joe Kosky, his 2nd-consolation-round foe Friday from Bellaire St. John Central Catholic at the Division III State Wrestling Championships. However, Kosky ousted him with a 7-5 overtime victory. rallied, getting an escape, then a takedown, making it now 4-3, Musser. Musser countered with an escape for a 5-3 lead. With seconds left, Kosky got a takedown which tied it at 5-5. This led to overtime and Kosky got the first takedown to get the win. Even though he didn’t make it to the podium, he wrestled very hard every match at state. He did not give

NBA CAPSULES
lead, including a 3-pointer that gave Cleveland a 116112 lead with 10.6 seconds left. Amare Stoudemire answered with a 3 for the Knicks but after a free throw by Ramon Sessions, Carmelo Anthony was called for a charging foul after he broke free of Anthony Parker’s attempt to hold him and the last-place Cavaliers beat the Knicks for the third time this season. Stoudemire matched a season high with 41 points and Anthony added 29, but the Knicks still haven’t defeated the Cavs since Dec. 19, 2007. Celtics 107, Warriors 103 BOSTON — Ray Allen scored 27 points and pulled down a crucial offensive rebound with 12 seconds remaining to help Boston hold off Monta Ellis and Golden State. Paul Pierce also scored 27 for the Celtics, who let an 18-point lead slip to just one late in the fourth quarter and struggled to put away the pesky Warriors. Ellis scored 28 of his 41 points in the second half as Golden State rallied and gave the short-handed Celtics a scare right to the end. Boston wasn’t able to seal it until Allen snatched a rebound off a miss by Kevin Garnett with 12 seconds left, then hit two free throws. Jeff Green added 21 points and Rajon Rondo had 16 assists for Boston. David Lee had 26 points and 12 rebounds for the Warriors, who took advantage of some shoddy defense by the new-look Celtics. Thunder 111, Hawks 104 ATLANTA — Kevin Durant scored 29 points despite a sore ankle and Russell Westbrook hit a clinching 3-pointer, leading Oklahoma City over Atlanta. Durant sprained his left ankle two nights earlier and wasn’t cleared to play until an hour before the game but the NBA’s leading scorer turned in his usual performance. He came in averaging 28.4 points a game. Westbrook hit the biggest shot of all. After Marvin Williams’ putback pulled the Hawks within 102-100, the man wearing zero took a pass from Durant, picked up a screen from Nick Collison and swished a wide-open jumper from behind the arc. Westbrook finished with 28 points. Joe Johnson led the Hawks with 24 and Kirk Hinrich added 21. Nets 116, Raptors 103 LONDON — Brook Lopez scored 25 points and New Jersey ended a 6-game losing streak by beating Toronto in the first regularseason NBA game played in Europe. Deron Williams added 16 points and 11 assists at the O2 Arena despite playing with injuries to both hands — a strained right wrist and bruised left hand. It was the All-Star guard’s first win with the Nets since being acquired from Utah last week. DeMar DeRozan led Toronto with 30 points and Andrea Bargnani added 23. Attendance was an announced sellout of 18,689, but there were some empty seats. The teams will face each other again at the O2 on Saturday, as the NBA decided to bring regular-season games to Europe for the first time as part of its push to increase its fan base on the continent. The O2 has hosted preseason games for the last four years. 76ers 111, Timberwolves 100 PHILADELPHIA — Andre Iguodala had 22 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds for his second triple-double of the season and Philadelphia overcame another stellar effort from Kevin Love to beat Minnesota. Elton Brand scored 21 points and Thaddeus Young added 16 for the Sixers, who climbed back above .500 at 31-30. They currently hold the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race. The Timberwolves got 21 points and 23 rebounds from Love, the 10th time he’s had a 20-20 game this season. It was the 49th straight doubledouble for the All-Star forward, just two shy of tying Moses Malone’s 51-game streak set in 1978-79. Love leads the league with 58 double-doubles. Hornets 98, Grizzlies 91 MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Chris Paul broke out of a scoring slump with 23 points and 14 assists and Willie Green keyed New Orleans’ fourth-quarter rally against Memphis. Paul, limited to 17 points over the previous three games, was 7-of-15 from the field, including 2-for-3 on 3-pointers. Green scored 13 of his 15 points in the fourth as the Hornets snapped a 3-game skid and moved past Portland into sixth place in the Western Conference. Jarrett Jack had 19 points for New Orleans, while Marco Belinelli and Carl Landry scored 14 apiece. Belinelli was 6-of-7 from the floor and Landry grabbed 10 rebounds. Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Suns 102, Bucks 88 MILWAUKEE — Channing Frye scored 20 points and Phoenix used a 19-0 run in the third quarter to flip a deficit into a big lead against Milwaukee. The Suns are chasing Memphis for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference and are just a half-game back after winning 12 of their last 16. It appeared they might not keep pace, though, after a lackadaisical first half and an 8-point deficit early in the third quarter. But Frye converted a 3-point play to spark 12 points in a span of 1:38 that the Suns stretched to 19 in a row. Corey Maggette scored 21 points for the Bucks, who were missing four regulars due to injuries or illness, including center Andrew Bogut. Mavericks 116, Pacers 108 DALLAS — Dirk Nowitzki scored 29 points, Jason Terry added 21 and Dallas pulled away from Indiana in the final 3 minutes to stretch its winning streak to eight games. Jason Kidd’s 15 points and Rodrigue Beaubois’ 13 helped the Mavericks to their 18th victory in 19 games. Danny Granger had 22 points and Darren Collison 17 for the Pacers, who have lost 4-of-5 but are 10-7 since Frank Vogel took over as interim coach after Jim O’Brien was fired Jan. 30. The Mavericks led by as many as 14 in the third quarter but couldn’t put away the Pacers, who pulled within 101-98 on Collison’s 3-pointer with 3:24 left. But Terry hit back-toback 15-foot jumpers, the second with 2:29 left, and Kidd converted two free throws to push Dallas’ lead to 107-98. Mavericks starting center Tyson Chandler missed the game with a sprained right ankle.

Cierra Bravard had 20 points and 12 rebounds to lead thirdseeded Florida State, which flirted with making the second-biggest halftime comeback in tournament history. No. 16 Kentucky 60, LSU 58 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A’dia Mathies scored on a 3-point play with 38.8 seconds left, and Kentucky edged LSU in the Southeastern Conference tournament quarterfinals. The second-seeded Wildcats (23-7) will play Vanderbilt today. LSU (19-13) will have to wait and see if the Lady Tigers did enough to earn a postseason berth and the chance to notch a third 20-win season under coach Van Chancellor. The Lady Tigers had their chances late. LaSondra Barrett, who scored 19 points, bounced a 3-pointer off the front of the rim with 14 seconds left and Katherine Graham’s jumper in the final seconds was off. Victoria Dunlap helped seal the victory with a free throw with 12.5 seconds left. She finished with a game-high 21 points.

The Associated Press SAN ANTONIO — Manu Ginobili scored 20 points, Tony Parker made a surprise return to the starting lineup and the San Antonio Spurs handed the skidding Miami Heat their most lopsided loss of the season, 125-95 on Friday night. In the first meeting between these NBA heavyweights, the Spurs (51-11) improved the league’s best record and kept the Heat in a tailspin. A night after blowing a 24-point lead in a stunning loss to Orlando, Miami trailed by 24 after just one quarter and lost for the fourth time in five games. Parker had 15 points and eight assists. He returned less than a week after the Spurs feared their point guard might miss up to a month with a strained calf. LeBron James scored 26 points and Dwyane Wade had 19. It won’t get much easier for the Heat, who return home to play Chicago on Sunday. Bulls 89, Magic 81 ORLANDO, Fla. — Derrick Rose had 24 points and Luol Deng added 16 to help Chicago hold off Orlando in a matchup of two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.

He scored 12 points in the final 6-plus minutes after the Knicks had built a 12-point

Contending that low-fat diets and most supplements are ineffective and programs touted in bestsellers and the media prove too restrictive for many patients, Brill offers a Mediterranean-style diet incorporating liberal daily servings of eight “superfood” groups: healthy fats, vegetables, fruit, legumes, seafood, walnuts and flaxseeds, whole grains, and moderate amounts of red wine.

Man kept from his brother

Ask Mr. Know-It-All
By Gary Clothier Q: With the recent marriage of Chelsea Clinton, I was wondering if she and her husband would be offered Secret Service protection. I believe legislation was passed that limits the time frame for security for an ex-president and his family. When did that take effect? -- B.L., Middleboro, Mass. A: After the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901, Congress directed the Secret Service to protect the president of the United States and former presidents

she’s doing it and want to stop. At the very least, she should do it in private. It is not an attractive process to watch. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Illinois,” whose husband wants to keep their dog, “Buddy,” even though he doesn’t get along with their other four dogs and they are expecting a baby soon. I am a dog trainer and am always amazed at people who have numerous dogs and expect all of them to get along. That notion is totally insane. It would be like having five people with five different personalities living together 24/7. As much as the husband loves this dog, for everyone’s sake, Buddy should be placed in a home where HIS needs are met. A multipledog home is simply not it. And in doing what is best for Buddy, it also is absolutely best for everyone involved. Otherwise, they are asking for some serious consequences for both the humans and the other dogs. -- Dallas, Ore. Dear Dallas: We appreciate the professional backup and agree that Buddy would be better off elsewhere -and so would the rest of the family. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Secret service protection limited for ex-president, family
and their spouses over the course of their lives. In 1997, legislation limited Secret Service protection of former presidents for a period of not more than 10 years from the date the former president leaves office. Children of former presidents are offered protection until the age of 16. Q: When Wayne Newton was a teenager, I remember him making an appearance on an episode of the TV Western “Gunsmoke.” No one I know remembers this. Can you tell me if I am correct? -- E.S., Kalamazoo, Mich. A: I am unable to find any

mention of Wayne Newton making an appearance on “Gunsmoke.” In 1966, he did guest star on two episodes of “Bonanza.” He has been a guest on many TV shows over the years. Q: Which sister is older: Audrey or Jayne Meadows? -G.M.M., St. Joseph, Mo. A: Jayne (wife of Steve Allen) was born on Sept. 27, 1920, while her sister Audrey (Alice Kramden on “The Honeymooners”) was born on Feb. 8, 1926. Audrey passed away in 1996.

Nearer, my ‘Confession’ app, to thee
TERRY MATTINGLY

Saturday, March 5, 2011

www.delphosherald.com

For generations, Catholics carried these simple leaflets inside their handbags or wallets, short texts topped with titles such as “A Guide For Confession” or “A Personal Examination of the Conscience.” The believer would be reminded: “Be truly sorry for your sins. The essential act of penance, on the part of the penitent, is contrition, a clear and decisive rejection of the sin committed, together with a resolution not to commit it again, out of the love one has for God and which is reborn with repentance.” These paper guides also offer lists of questions to prick the conscience, such as, “Have I denied my faith?,” “Have I neglected prayer?” or “Was I impatient, angry, envious, proud, jealous, revengeful, lazy?” If it had been a long time since a previous confession, the penitent would be reminded, “If you need help ... simply ask the priest and he will help you by ‘walking’ you through the steps.” That was then. In recent weeks, waves of Catholics, along with curious members of other flocks, have downloaded a new “Confession” app for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices that combines private journaling, spiritual readings and traditional pre-confession leaflets into one password-protected digital package. Why carry scribbled notes into confession

On Religion
when for $1.99 one can work through the rite while being bathed in the cool blue glow that is the symbol of the social-networking age? Scribes in newsrooms around the world sprang into action. “Bless me father for I have sinned. It has been 300 tweets since my last confession,” noted CNN. In London, The Times opened its story by claiming: “Roman Catholic bishops have approved a new iPhone and iPad app that allows users to make confession with a virtual ‘priest’ over the Internet.” The Economic Times report was even more blunt. The headline noted, “No time to visit church? Confess via iPhone.” Then the opening lines went further still, stating: “Users of iPhone can now perform contrition and other religious rituals without visiting church, thanks to a new online application.”

The problem is that these statements were just plain wrong. There is no such thing as a “virtual” priest or a “virtual” sacrament. How could electronic devices allow believers to “perform ... other religious rituals”? “I am all for anything that gets people to go to confession,” noted the Rev. John Zuhlsdorf, at his popular “What Does the Prayer Really Say?” website. “But let’s be clear about something: The iPhone app is for preparing to go to confession. It is not a substitute for going to confession.” Nevertheless, the cracked headlines rolled on with the Catholic League expressing outrage about new stinkers, such as, “Can’t Make it to Confession? There’s an App for That,” “New, Church-Approved iPhone Offers Confession On the Go” and “Bless Me iPhone for I Have Sinned.” It was true that the Confession app had been developed with the direct help of Catholic priests and, yes, its theological content earned an imprimatur from Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades, leader of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Ind.But after the barrage of inaccurate headlines, Vatican officials finally decided that a response was required. It is true that “in a world in which many people use computer support for reading and reflection,” Catholics may now find that “dig-

ital technology can be useful in the preparation for confession,” noted the Rev. Federico Lombardi, director of the Vatican press office. However, he added, it is “essential to understand that the sacrament of penance requires a personal dialogue between the penitent and the confessor in order for absolution to be given. “This ... cannot be replaced by any computer application such as the iPhone.” This statement produced more headlines. A CBS headline offering was typical -- “Vatican: No, You Can’t Confess to Your iPhone.” Of course, the app’s creators never made that claim in the first place. The story had come full circle. Thus, noted Maureen Down of The New York Times, this new app “is not a session with a virtual priest who restores your virtue with a penance of three Hail Marys and three extra gigabytes of memory. ... You still have to go into the real confessional at church to get absolution, and, hopefully, your priest won’t be annoyed that you’re reading your sins off of a little screen and, maybe, peeking at a football game or shopping site once in awhile.”

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Sunday, March 6, 2011 Eliminating unproductive patterns that you’ve had for years will be your No. 1 goal in the year ahead. If you have the staying power, these old urges will be replaced by true productivity that’ll take you far. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - Just because you have a few extra bucks in your wallet, there is no reason to stop being prudent with your financial resources. Don’t be wasteful. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - Persons who have the power to influence others’ acceptance of you are always watching. Don’t do anything that could lessen how their good opinion of you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - Adopting a negative attitude is always self-defeating, so instead of focusing on all the reasons why you can’t do something, find reasons why you’re the perfect one to do it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) It’ll work against you to think that you have to buy someone’s goodwill with a favor or some perks. People who are truly your friends will like you for who you are, warts and all. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - You should keep noncontributing individuals out of your affairs and on the sidelines, especially if you’re engaged in an important project. Going it alone will keep trouble at a minimum. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - It isn’t likely that you’ll be too productive if your methods aren’t properly organized. There’s a good chance that you could allow nonessential activities to prohibit you from achieving your goals. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Try to be prudent when it comes to handling your funds, especially if you go shopping. Making foolish and/or wasteful purchases may please you for the moment, but they will punish you down the line. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Do not force someone on your mate whom you know for a fact s/ he doesn’t enjoy having around. Everyone will end up feeling ill at ease, including you, which will make for a major bummer. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Your critical faculties will be finely tuned, but whether or not this is an asset will depend upon how you apply them. Use them to find fault and they’ll work against you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Having someone over for a pleasant repast could turn out to be a downer if this person fails to show any appreciation of your invitation. Be more selective in your choice of guests. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Bickering within the household could be eliminated if you’re not too insistent that everyone marches to the beat of your bongo. Let each person boogie to his/her own jam. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Generally, you’re a rather pleasant person who is easy to get along with, but for reasons known only to you, you could at times step out of character and find fault with everything. Monday, March 7, 2011 You’re the type of person who always wants to get along well with everyone, yet in the coming year you might let yourself be less careful about how you handle tough people. In some cases you’ll win, in others you won’t. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - If you’re honest with yourself, you’ll realize that self-discipline is always essential in the management of your funds. The minute you let your guard down, wasteful spending is likely. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Regardless of how right you think you are, be cooperative instead of insistent upon others doing things your way. If you’re correct, events will have people coming around to your view. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - It isn’t likely you’ll have much luck in getting others to do things your way, so if there is something important at stake, handle it on your own. It’s the only sure shot to getting what you want. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - There is a good chance you’ll be asked to take on some additional responsibilities, but don’t think you have to do so just because it’s requested of you. Have your excuses ready. CANCER (June 21-July 22) - If you hope to fulfill an ambitious objective, be prepared to be more tenacious than a hungry terrier. Be prepared for the worst, and it won’t seem so tough. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Should your position or opinion be challenged or opposed, you’re not apt to yield your ground too easily, even though you might know in your heart that you could be wrong. Try to be more flexible. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Don’t allow your desires for instant gratification to cause you embark on a spending spree. Do so only when your wallet is bulging and you have money to burn. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It’s your basic nature to be a rather optimistic person, yet you could have a tendency to be nothing but negative when assessing matters at hand, if you do so in a sour frame of mind. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Instead of pushing yourself to the end of your tether, get help when you find the workload getting heavier than you’re capable of handling on your own. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) - You’re not likely to find yourself being too popular if you can’t resist trying to remake friends in your own image. Accept your pals, warts and all, and they’ll do the same with you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - If you fail to honor a promise you made to a friend just because you simply don’t feel like doing it, it’ll prey on your mind all day long. For your own peace of conscience, stand by your word. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Be careful which friend you go to for an honest evaluation of something important, because a negative person is likely to see only the down side and could steer you accordingly.

Trend reversal: Big drop in kids’ ear infections
BY MIKE STOBBE The Associated Press ATLANTA — Ear infections, a scourge that has left countless tots screaming through the night, have fallen dramatically, and some researchers suggest a decline in smoking by parents might be part of the reason. Health officials report nearly a 30 percent drop over 15 years in young children’s doctor visits for ear infections. Why the numbers are declining is a bit of a mystery, but Harvard researchers think it’s partly because fewer people smoke, meaning less irritation of children’s airways. Many doctors credit growing use of a vaccine against bacteria that cause ear infections. And some think increased breast feeding is protecting more children. “We’re sort of guessing here,” said Dr. Richard Rosenfeld, a New York-based ear, nose and throat specialist who speaks about the issue for the American Academy of Pediatrics. To be sure, middle ear infections still plague many U.S. children. For decades, they were the most common reason that parents brought young children to a doctor, according to health officials. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention hadn’t issued a report on them in nearly 20 years. Cases skyrocketed from 1975 to 1990. The visit rate for children 5 and under more than doubled in that time. A big reason, Rosenfeld said, was a steady rise in dual-career families. More families put their kids in day care, and day care is a breeding ground for the germs that lead to ear infections. But the study by Harvard

“When people are smoking less around their kids, when homes are smoke-free, the rate of ear infections can and has decreased.”
— Hillel Alpert, lead author of study published in Tobacco Control University suggests another contributor: cigarette smoke. Most ear infections occur after a cold. In children, the ear is more directly connected to the back of the nose, so infections in a child’s nose and throat can easily trigger ear inflammation. Such swelling is a fertile setting for the bacteria that cause ear infections. Cigarette smoke, inhaled through a child’s nose, can trigger the same kind of irritation and swelling, said Dr. Gordon Hughes of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. CDC figures show that 88 percent of U.S. nonsmokers were exposed to secondhand smoke around 1990, but that fell to about 40 percent in 2007 and 2008. Harvard research indicates the decline coincides with a drop in childhood ear infections. “When people are smoking less around their kids, when homes are smoke-free, the rate of ear infections can and has decreased,” said Hillel Alpert, lead author of a study published recently by the journal Tobacco Control. At the request of The Associated Press, the CDC

Vern and Judy Fischer pan for gold.

Alaska

“It’s the same thing with this one local tradition they have in Seward,” she added. “It’s a race up the mountain. It started with two men in a bar who made a bet about who could get to the top first and it just became a tradition. It’s now an annual marathon and they have four groups, children, juniors, women and men. They say if you don’t come down bloody and muddy then you didn’t try hard enough. This mountain is clear up in the clouds.” Most people in the lower 48 leave their state for vacation but Fischer said this doesn’t seem to be the case with Alaskans. “We were talking to this one native man and he mentioned he was about to leave for vacation,” she said. “I told him ‘well, we’re here on vacation, so where are you going?’ and he said ‘the real Alaska.’ He meant the wild parts, the ones you can only reach by plane or dog sled.”

checked its recent trend data on ear infections, based on annual surveys of a representative sample of doctors. For children ages 6 and under, the number of medical visits in which the main diagnosis was ear infection dropped by nearly 30 percent from 1993 to 2008 — from an estimated 17.5 million visits to about 12.5 million. The rate of such visits dropped by about 32 percent, from 636 ear infection-related visits per 1,000 children to 431 per 1,000. The trend downward for very young children seems to have leveled off in the last few years. A CDC analysis of data from 2004 through 2008 found the differences yearto-year were not meaningful, said Susan Schappert of the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics. Some doctors have noticed fewer ear infections in their waiting rooms compared to what they saw years ago. “We don’t see them that much anymore,” said Dr. Michael Baron, a family practice doctor in Stone Mountain, a suburb of Atlanta. Another factor in that decline may be growing use of a vaccine that protects against strep bacteria that can cause ear infections. The vaccine, first licensed in 2000, would not account for the drop in cases in the 1990s, but probably has contributed to the decline since, several experts said. Also, some studies have credited antibody-rich breast milk with lowering infants’ risk for respiratory and middle ear infections. About 77 percent of new mothers breastfeed, at least briefly, up from fewer than two-thirds in the early 1990s. Of course, these are just theories.

Wis. governor tells unions it will lay off workers
The tail of a whale off the coast of Alaska. MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Day by day, the rallies of thousands of teachers, firefighters and other public workers that propelled Wisconsin’s fight over union rights to national prominence have been giving way to smaller protests of mostly students. When the protests erupted, the Capitol and streets around it were packed with government employees demanding that their rights not be taken away. Two weekend demonstrations after that attracted roughly 70,000 people each time. So many teachers came from the Madison district that was forced to close for four days. But by the time Capitol police cleared the rotunda late Thursday, the crowd was down to about 50 hardcore demonstrators. The face of the protesters changed in large part when police began allowing people to enter the building only as an equal number departed. That left mainly student activists, many of whom had slept on the granite floors for more than two weeks. The long wait for access has discouraged some people from attending protests, and teachers and other union members are now often present only in the afternoon. “Clearly, having people continue to protest is essential to our efforts,” said Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca, D-Kenosha. The protesters have gotten Republicans’ attention, he said. But they have not yet swayed Gov. Scott Walker from his attempt to eliminate most collective bargaining rights for public workers, and 14 Senate Democrats who fled the state to prevent a vote on the measure entered a third week on the run in Illinois.

Sex offender asks judges for release
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A convicted sexual predator seeking an extremely rare release from Minnesota’s sexual offender treatment program was confronted Friday by one of his victims, who rejected the man’s claim that he no longer poses a threat. John Rydberg, 69, has petitioned for release from a psychiatric hospital to a halfway house in the Twin Cities, a step that ultimately could make him the first person permanently released from the state’s program. Attorneys for the state and Blue Earth County, where his last offense was raping a woman at knifepoint in front of her children in 1979, are arguing against his release. They sought to poke holes in his testimony to show that he’s just going through the motions, hasn’t fully faced up to what he’s done and isn’t ready for a next step toward freedom. Rydberg said he’s no danger but remembers about 94 victims, with offenses ranging from peeping to violent assaults. He admitted he has harmed a lot of people over the years and still struggles with his sexual feelings. Since it began in 1995, Minnesota’s sex offender treatment program has grown to more than 600 patients and it adds about 50 people per year. Only one man has been released in the program’s history, and his provisional discharge was revoked when he violated conditions of his release. He eventually died in custody. Rydberg’s case comes as the state grapples with the rising costs of treating sex offenders at a time when it’s awash in red ink. Minnesota has an estimated $5 billion budget deficit, yet lawmakers are being asked to commit millions to expand sex offender treatment facilities. Some attorneys and others have also raised questions about the constitutionality of a civil commitment program if no one is ever released. The most compelling testimony Friday came from Tom McCartney, 58, who described for a three-judge panel an assault that began when Rydberg burst into McCartney’s country home near Westfield, Wis., with a sawed-off shotgun the stormy night of June 4, 1975. After McCartney and his wife, Janet, were tied up, Rydberg went upstairs where the couple’s 3-year-old son was sleeping to get pillowcases to put over their heads, McCartney said. Rydberg then raped Janet McCartney with his mask off, McCartney said, describing how he got good looks at Rydberg’s face during lightning flashes. Then, he said, Rydberg pulled down McCartney’s pants and performed oral sex on him for about five minutes. He eventually left, stealing their car. About a month and a half later, McCartney said, his wife learned she was pregnant. Rather than risking that the child might be her rapist’s, he said, they decided to have an abortion.

Oil at highest level since Sept. 2008
NEW YORK (AP) — Oil prices rose past $104 a barrel to end the week at a 29-month high, as fighting in Libya intensified and the world’s largest petroleum consumer, the U.S., reported that employers added nearly 200,000 new jobs in February. The Labor Department said Friday that the unemployment rate dropped to 8.9 percent in February. While that’s positive news for the economy, the report also suggests that more people are driving to work at a time when world oil supplies are under pressure because of unrest in Libya and the Middle East. Benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude for April delivery gained $2.51 to settle at $104.42 per barrel in New York, the highest level since Sept. 26, 2008. Gasoline prices have shot up an average of 35 cents per gallon since an uprising in Libya began in mid-February. A gallon of regular gained another 4.4 cents overnight to a new national average of $3.471 per gallon, according to AAA, Wright Express and the Oil Price Information Service. Pump prices are soaring much faster than analysts expected as rebellions sweeps across North Africa and the Middle East. Prices should peak between $3.50 and $3.75 per gallon this spring, according to Tom Kloza, OPIS chief oil analyst. Most of Libya’s oil production has been shut down because of the crisis, and experts say the country’s oil fields will be threatened as long as there’s no clear leader in charge. Saudi Arabia has increased production to make up for the loss of Libyan crude, but a lengthy struggle could put significant pressure on world supplies. Traders are concerned that anti-government protesters will further challenge neighboring regimes in the region. North Africa and the Middle East are home to the largest oil producers on earth and export a quarter of the world’s oil.

Fla. police identify children found in canal
DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The boy and girl whose bodies were found stuffed into luggage and thrown into a south Florida canal are believed to be the children of a woman found dead in a landfill last summer, police said Friday. Investigators said they have positively identified the children’s bodies found Wednesday as siblings Jermaine McNeil, 10, and Ju’tyra Allen, 6. They believe their mother, Felicia Brown, is the woman whose body was found in a West Palm Beach landfill last August. Sgt. Nicole Guerriero, a spokeswoman for the Delray Beach Police, said the three lived with Clem Beauchamp, who investigators say is their only suspect in the deaths. He has not been charged with their slayings but is being held on an unrelated weapons charge. Police said they didn’t expect any charges in the case for several days, at the earliest. Meantime, the release of the victims’ identities Friday horrified friends and relatives, including Brown’s sister, 22-year-old Margaret Gissone. “There were a lot of things I wanted to tell her that I hadn’t told her yet,” she said. Friends and neighbors said they had been asking Beauchamp about Brown’s whereabouts for months, but he had an explanation. “He said she was in jail,” said Kenneth Marshall, 43, an acquaintance of the family. Three other children who lived in Beauchamp’s home were taken from his girlfriend and put into the custody of the Department of Children and Families, Guerriero said Friday. The girlfriend was questioned in the killings but is not considered a suspect, police said. After Beauchamp was questioned in the children’s deaths by Delray Beach police Thursday night, federal agents arrested him on the weapons charge, which will keep him behind bars as the investigation continues. Court records show the weapons charge dates to 2009, when officers found a homemade silencer inside a bag with a knit hat and a Halloween mask. On Friday, investigators sifted through his small home and towed away cars. The silencer was found in the trunk of Brown’s repossessed car, documents show. Beauchamp denied any involvement with the silencer, according to court documents. It’s not yet known if he has an attorney.
