Employees and their families lined the route Tuesday night as Atlantis crept out of the Vehicle Assembly Building a little after sunset, bathed in xenon lights. “The show pretty much tells itself,” Atlantis’ commander, Christopher Ferguson, said as he waved toward his ship. “We’re going to look upon this final mission as a celebration of all that the space shuttle has accomplished over its 30-year life span.” Bright lights also illuminated the landing strip for Kelly, who made the 25th night landing out of a total of 134 shuttle flights. The Endeavour astronauts — all experienced spacemen — departed the 220-milehigh orbiting outpost over the weekend. They installed

in Tucson, Ariz., in January, but made a remarkable recovery and was able to attend the May 16 launch. The congresswoman did not travel to Florida for the landing because of the inconvenient hour, but Kelly’s two teenage daughters were on hand, along with his twin brother, Scott, also an astronaut. Six hours after the 2:35 a.m. touchdown, Kelly had yet to call Giffords. He didn’t want to wake her in her hospital room. He told his mother-in-law in a post-landing e-mail that he’d call the congresswoman following the morning news conference. “What I’m going to say to her?” he said in response to a reporter’s question. “Really miss her and can’t wait to get back there tomorrow to see her.” The astronauts will return to Houston on Thursday for a big welcome-home ceremony. Endeavour, the second space shuttle to be retired, will head to the California Science Center in Los Angeles after months of decommissioning. Built to replace the destroyed Challenger, Endeavour first soared in 1992 on a satelliterescue mission that saw a record-setting three spacewalkers grab the wayward craft. Other highlights for the baby of the shuttle fleet: the first repair mission to the Hubble Space Telescope in 1993, to fix its blurred vision, and NASA’s first flight to assemble the space station in 1998. Its final journey featured four spacewalks, the last ones to be conducted by a shuttle crew. One of the spacewalking astronauts, Mike Fincke, set a U.S. career record of 382 days in space. The flight also marked the first departure of a Russian Soyuz capsule during a shuttle visit to the space station, and the first call to space by a pope. Two Italians were aboard the shuttle-station complex when Pope Benedict XVI phoned from the Vatican on May 21. Gertrude Fischer of Delphos died Tuesday at St. Rita’s Medical Center. Arrangements are incomplete at Harter and Schier Funeral Home. Hubert Friemoth, 81, of Delphos, died today at Vancrest Healthcare Center.

billion cosmic ray detector, an extension beam and a platform full of spare parts, enough to keep the station operating in the shuttle-less decade ahead. Their flight lasted 16 days and completed NASA’s role in the space station construction effort that began more than 12 years ago. The official tally for Endeavour, after 19 years of flight, was 170 crew members, 299 days in space, 4,671 orbits of Earth and 122,883,151 miles. Kelly was the last astronaut to exit Endeavour. He and his crew posed for pictures and signed autographs on the runway. Astronaut Gregory Chamitoff was so wobbly from weightlessness that he had to be supported by two colleagues, but he was determined to join in the event. As Kelly thanked his crewmates live on NASA TV for their flawless performance, copilot Gregory Johnson leaned over to shout into the mike, “And our commander, we want to thank him, too.” Johnson and the rest of the crew were openly supportive, over the months, about Kelly’s decision to stick with the flight, despite his wife’s serious injury.

BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A mallard duck is sitting on seven eggs in a nest in the lawn and garden section of a Home Depot store in Bangor, Maine. The duck is surrounded by hostas, impatiens and potting mix. The nest is protected by yellow tape and a sign that tells customers “Please do not disturb the duck.” Home Depot’s Brenda Hatch, who works in the lawn and garden section, feeds and waters the duck every day. The duck showed up last year too, and employees put her in a box and relocated her and her eggs. But she returned about three weeks ago. The Bangor Daily News says the duck flies off every day, but returns within an hour. Experts say the eggs should be about ready to hatch.

At 2:08 p.m. on Tuesday, a collision occurred when the driver of a pickup truck failed to yield the right of way after stopping. Kelsey Goodwin, 17, of Delphos, was traveling northbound on North Canal Street when she stopped at the stop sign at West Third Street and proceeded into the intersection. Nelson Fry, 83, was stopped at the same intersection facing west on West Third Street when he began to turn right, failing to see Goodwin’s vehicle. Fry’s vehicle struck Goodwin’s, causing functional damage to Goodwin’s and minor damage to his own. There were no injuries and Fry was cited for a failure to yield after stopping.

Zoo optimistic about giraffe that broke leg


Senate budget plan strips Wilhelm new Van Wert County Engineering Dept. new union law wording superintendent
By ANN SANNER Associated Press COLUMBUS — Teachers angered by Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s plan to closely tie their wages to performance received some relief Tuesday from the state Senate, which is proposing stripping that idea — at least temporarily — from a state budget proposal that also sends more money to local schools. The Republican-led Senate’s $55.7 billion, twoyear budget finds $115 million more for schools, $100 million more for local governments, and $15 million more for home-based nursing care while offering relief from estate, income and property taxes. That’s the result of more optimistic state revenue estimates. The school funding increases still don’t fully restore proposed cuts to current funding levels that will occur with the expiration of nearly $1 billion in federal stimulus money. But high-performing school districts could receive even more state money — $17 per student — through a new reward program for schools that are rated excellent or higher. The Senate’s bill would also save money by allowing a private manager to operate the state lottery, which benefits education. Senate President Tom Niehaus, a New Richmond Republican, said as the state faces an estimated $8 billion budget shortfall, lawmakers tried to be mindful of the economic crunch schools were feeling. “We’re committed to putting the limited resources we have toward areas that need it most, and that begins with our schools,” Niehaus said. Senators also want to remove provisions from the bill that would base teachers’ salaries on their performance — language that’s similar to certain wording in the state’s contentious new collective bargaining law. Niehaus said his chamber wanted to remove that language in order to avoid conflict with any union agreements schools made with teachers as part of federal Race to the Top grants. Some version of performance pay is likely to be returned to the bill later, said Senate spokesman Jason Mauk. Niehaus said a November ballot repeal effort against the new bargaining law is not a factor, but that some senators were confused by the language. The removal of the teacher provision would reverse House-passed language that based teachers’ salaries on performance and evaluations, instead of the current increase based on seniority and level of training. The wording was nearly identical to that contained in Senate Bill 5, a collective bargaining overhaul that affects 350,000 unionized police, firefighters, nurses, and state and local workers across the state. It allows unions to negotiate wages but not health care, sick time or pension benefits. Opponents of the new law have said putting performance-based pay for teachers in the budget bill skirts the chance for voters to weigh in on the idea in an expected referendum. Supporters of the law also launched a nonprofit political organization Tuesday to counter a signature drive to place allow voters to decide whether to keep or get rid of the law on the November ballot. While the bill opens the door for private management of the state lottery, it protects the Ohio Turnpike from being taken private without legislative approval, and alters the accountability of charter schools. Kasich has said leasing the the 241-mile toll road across northern Ohio has the potential to yield $2.5 billion. He wants to use a billion from any possible deal to invest in roads, bridges and harbors. The first-term Republican governor has proposed allowing the transportation department and budget office to negotiate and enter a turnpike lease with a private operator. Lawmakers wanted to have a chance to review any deal. “This is an important asset for the state of Ohio,” Niehaus said. “We want to make sure that there is legislative input into anything that would happen.” The legislation proposed by Republican Senate leaders also includes $1.7 billion in property tax relief to Ohio homeowners and tax credit expansions for job creation and historic preservation. A Senate panel will have two days of hearings this week on the revised budget. The full Senate plans to vote next week on the measure. Lawmakers in both chambers would have to work out any differences between the two budget plans. They face a June 30 deadline to pass the state spending plan.


CINCINNATI (AP) — A baby giraffe that suffered a broken leg has been given a checkup and a new cast at Cincinnati’s zoo, where keepers say they’re guardedly optimistic. Zoo Director of Animal Collections David Oehler says in a statement that Tuesday’s exam showed the leg is healing. But, as he puts it, 8-weekold Zuri is “not out of the woods yet.” The female giraffe was found with an injured right rear leg on May 19. The first keeper arriving at the zoo’s Giraffe Ridge area that morning noticed that Zuri was limping as she tried to stand. The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden says Zuri will be examined again in another week or more.

State offering flood assistance in southern Ohio

COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio judge says a woman jailed for using her father’s address to enroll her children in a different school district was not on the verge of becoming a teacher herself, as she claimed during her trial. Summit County Common Pleas Judge Patricia Cosgrove tells The Columbus Dispatch that Kelley Williams-Bolar, of Akron, was “nowhere near getting her teacher’s license.” The judge says her view is supported by school records, which will be presented during Williams-Bolar’s upcoming clemency hearing. Williams-Bolar was found guilty in Cosgrove’s court of falsifying documents in the school residency matter, a conviction that threatens her hopes of obtaining a teaching license. She spent nine days in jail. An attorney for WilliamsBolar says she has completed 119 hours of study toward a teaching career.

Man upset that police shot his injured cat

COLUMBUS (AP) — Gov. John Kasich says the state provide $750,000 to assist uninsured homeowners and renters who suffered damages from flash flooding in seven southern Ohio counties on May 10 and 11. The governor’s office said Tuesday that the State Assistance program will help with eligible real property damages, personal property damages and funeral expenses in Gallia, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton. The office says the flooding caused one death and significant property damage. Kasich also is asking for a joint federal preliminary damage assessment for 21 Ohio counties for April flood damage, including landslides, debris-covered roadways and washed-out culverts, bridges and overpasses.

NEWARK (AP) — An Ohio man is questioning a police officer’s decision to fatally shoot the family cat after it was struck by a car last month. Jeffery Pisula says the sound from the street woke him around 1 a.m. on April 15. He says Ralphie the cat was 20 feet from their front door in Newark in central Ohio and the officer should have tried to contact them. Pisula says the department should change its policy so a veterinarian makes the call on whether to put an animal down. Police tell WBNS-TV of Columbus that officers usually shoot an injured animal as a last resort. Sgt. Scott Snow says animal control couldn’t be called because no one was working at that hour.

House rejects debt limit increase without cuts
By DAVID ESPO Associated Press WASHINGTON — House Republicans dealt defeat to their own proposal for a $2.4 trillion increase in the nation’s debt limit Tuesday, a political gambit designed to reinforce a demand for spending cuts to accompany any increase in government borrowing. The vote was lopsided, with just 97 in favor of the measure and 318 against. House Democrats accused the GOP of political demagoguery, while the Obama administration maneuvered to avoid taking sides — or giving offense to majority Republicans. The debate was brief, occasionally impassioned and set a standard of sorts for public theater, particularly at a time when private negotiations continue among the administration and key lawmakers on the deficit cuts Republicans have demanded. The bill “will and must fail,” said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., the House Ways and Means Committee chairman who noted he had helped write the very measure he was criticizing. “I consider defeating an unconditional increase to be a success, because it sends a clear and critical message that the Congress has finally recognized we must immediately begin to rein in America’s affection for deficit spending,” he said. But Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich., accused Republicans of a “ploy so egregious that (they) have had to spend the last week pleading with Wall Street not to take it seriously and risk our economic recovery.” He and other Democrats added that Republicans were attempting to draw attention away from their controversial plan to turn Medicare into a program in which seniors purchase private insurance coverage. The proceedings occurred roughly two months before the date Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has said the debt limit must be raised. If no action is taken by Aug. 2, he has warned, the government could default on its obligations and risk turmoil that might plunge the nation into another recession or even an economic depression. Republicans, who are scheduled to meet with Obama at the White House today, signaled in advance that the debt limit vote did not portend a final refusal to grant an increase. The roll call vote was held late in the day, and there was little, if any discernible impact on Wall Street, where

DEAR EDITOR, Hi my name is Lauryn McCann and the Kiwanis K-kids group spent two Fridays cleaning up cigarette butts and that is technically polluting our earth. Did you know that cigarette butts last for 18-25 years? So we (the Kiwanis K-kids) have an idea on what to do with your cigarette butt when you are done. We thought you could buy a little pouch and when you’re in your car instead of throwing it out of your window, just make sure it is put out then put it in a little pouch and then throw it away when you get home. Thank you, Lauryn McCann DEAR EDITOR, I am Sarah Vogt. I am a K-Kid. About three weeks ago, we picked up about 6,000 cigarette butts. We each picked up about 300. That was a lot of cigarettes. I want to tell all people that smoke to put their cigarette butts in ash trays. Did you know that cigarette butts do not break down? It takes about 18-25 years! That is a lot of years! Thank you, Sarah Vogt

US role in Asia on agenda for Gates’ final trip

One Year Ago • Despite the threat of rain, hundreds gathered at the Delphos Veterans Memorial Park on Monday to pay tribute to those who fought for our freedom. VFW Post 3035 and its auxiliary and color guard, American Legion Post 268 and its auxiliary, the Delphos Veterans Council Firing Squad and the Military Order of Cooties performed the ceremony. 25 Years Ago — 1986 • The Central Jaycees of Fort Jennings are compiling a Community Cookbook which will feature recipes from women of Fort Jennings. Proceeds from sales of the book will help support Jaycees’ sponsorship of the 175th anniversary celebration of Fort Jennings in June 1987. • Delphos native Gary Miller, a safety and security officer, was recently elected 1985 employee of the year by his fellow workers at Children’s Hospital, Columbus. He shares the honor with Bubba, a 100-pound German Shepherd, which Miller said is often described as “Children’s Hospital’s most popular employee.” • Doug Sanders, Steve Hellman and Todd Teman were track members of the Bluffton College track team coached by Bob Hilty.

These tickets may be obtained throughout the week. A special feature of the entertainment again next Saturday night will be the weekly dance at the dance pavilion on East Second Street.


HONOLULU (AP) — On his final overseas trip as secretary of defense, Robert Gates will make the case to a gathering of Asian defense chiefs in Singapore that expected budget-slashing in Washington will not weaken America’s commitment to Asia. En route to the meeting, Gates stopped in Hawaii on Tuesday for a brief visit to Pearl Harbor, where he toured the Battleship Missouri Memorial. Afterward a reporter asked what message he was taking to Singapore. “Even as we look at potential budget reductions, there is no slackening of the U.S. commitment to our presence in Asia,” he said. “We are a Pacific nation. We will remain a Pacific nation. We will remain engaged.” Later this week, in Singapore, Gates will attend the annual Shangri-La Dialogue, Asia’s most prominent security conference. Its agenda includes discussion about the challenge of Afghanistan, the implications of China’s military buildup and the dangers of North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. The backdrop to all of that is the contrasting financial condition of the two biggest regional powers — China, with its roaring economic engine feeding a major military expansion, and the United States, mired in mounting debt. Gates is scheduled to quit his Pentagon post on June 30, a little more than 4 1/2 years after he entered as the successor to Donald H. Rumsfeld. He started at a time of enormous public anxiety about Iraq, where the war was going badly. Many in Congress were calling for an immediate troop withdrawal, but there was relatively little worry about Afghanistan. He is finishing up his tenure with a far more stable — but still not peaceful — Iraq, and with congressional focus turned almost entirely on the war in Afghanistan, one that is costing much more in blood and treasure than when Gates became Pentagon chief. There were 24,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan when he began his tenure — just one-quarter of today’s total — and the once-defeated Taliban was just beginning its comeback. He will leave it to his designated successor, Leon Panetta, to oversee what President Barack Obama has promised will be a drawdown of U.S. forces in Afghanistan beginning in July. Decisions on the pace of that drawdown are expected shortly after Gates returns from his round-theworld trip. The last stop is in Brussels for a NATO meeting June 8-9. Asia figures prominently in the Pentagon’s strategic planning, given China’s rise and its anger over U.S. support of Taiwan, and uncertainty about the impact of U.S. budget constraints on the military’s ability to preserve its influence in the region. In a series of speeches leading up to the Singapore visit, Gates emphasized America’s staying power. In a commencement address at University of Notre Dame on May 22, Gates argued that whatever budget cutting is necessary to put the country’s woeful finances in order, it must not undermine the military’s global reach.

Hoopla, hype hover over GOP field
By CHARLES BABINGTON Associated Press WASHINGTON — Sarah Palin draws crowds with her hide-and-seek bus tour. Michele Bachmann says Palin’s plans won’t dissuade her from her likely presidential bid. Iowa GOP activists travel to New Jersey to implore Gov. Chris Christie to run, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry weighs a campaign. The Republican presidential field is far less settled than it seemed just a week ago, and it shows few signs of jelling soon. With campaigning off to a slow start in early-voting states, half a dozen potential candidates are mulling whether to jump in. So keen is the interest, among journalists at least, that two news helicopters tracked Palin’s East Coast bus trip to Philadelphia on Tuesday. The stepped-up interest follows decisions by three prominent Republicans — Haley Barbour, Mike Huckabee and Mitch Daniels — to forgo a campaign, making the field less crowded than some had expected. Meanwhile, GOP activists don’t appear ready to start narrowing their choices just yet. They seem unconcerned that an important Iowa straw poll is 74 days away and President Barack Obama’s re-election team is setting up shop in dozens of states. By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press Unease about presumed frontrunner Mitt Romney is prompting some Republican activists to continue casting about for new faces, such as Perry or Christie, or even familiar faces, such as Palin or Rudy Giuliani. Other party insiders, however, say the talk is unfair to Romney and other candidates. Several of them could prove to be formidable challengers to Obama, these Republicans say. “Look at the housing numbers today,” said Republican consultant Danny Diaz, referring to a key index of home prices that hit its lowest level in nine years. Obama will be vulnerable on housing, jobs and the overall economy, Diaz said, and the eventual Republican nominee’s clout will make the current handwringing seem foolish in retrospect. One thing is non-debatable: The race is off to a much slower start than was the 2008 version. In Iowa, which holds the nation’s first caucus, campaign traffic had reached deeply into the 99 counties at this stage four years ago. Now, it has barely scratched the surface, said Crawford County GOP Chairwoman Gwen Ecklund. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has visited the state more than a dozen times. And Bachmann, a third-term U.S. House member from Minnesota, has signaled plans

major exchanges showed gains for the day. At the same time, it satisfied what GOP officials said was a desire among the rank and file to vote against unpopular legislation the leadership has said eventually must pass in some form. Republicans said they were offering legislation Obama and more than 100 Democratic lawmakers had sought. But Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the second-ranking Democrat, accused the GOP of staging a “demagogic vote” at a time lawmakers should work together to avoid a financial default. All 97 votes in favor of the measure were cast by Democrats, totaling less than a majority and far under the two-thirds support needed for passage. For its part, the administration appeared eager to avoid criticizing Republicans. “It’s fine, it’s fine,” presidential press secretary Jay Carney said when asked about the Republican decision to tie spending cuts with more borrowing. “We believe they should not be linked because there is no alternative that’s acceptable to raising the debt ceiling. But we’re committed to reducing the deficit,” Carney said.

Republicans question healthier eating proposals
WASHINGTON — House Republicans are pushing back against Obama administration efforts to promote healthier lunches, saying the Agriculture Department should rewrite rules it issued in January meant to make school meals healthier. They say the new rules are too costly. The bill, approved by the House Appropriations Committee late Tuesday, also questions a government proposal to curb marketing of unhealthy foods to children and urges the Food and Drug Administration to limit rules requiring calorie counts be posted on menus. The overall spending bill would cut billions from USDA and FDA budgets, including for domestic feeding programs and international food aid. The panel also cut some farm subsidies to cut spending. Republicans are concerned about the cost of many of the Obama administration proposals, which they regard as overregulation, said Chris Crawford, a spokesman for the chairman of the Appropriations Committee’s agriculture subcommittee, Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga. Crawford said the marketing guidelines, released last month, are “classic nannystate overreach.” Though the guidelines, which would restrict which foods could be marketed to children, are voluntary, many companies are concerned that they will be penalized if they don’t follow them. The bill questions whether the Agriculture Department should spend money to be part of the marketing effort. “Our concern is those voluntary guidelines are backdoor regulation,” he said, deploring the fact that kids can watch shows that depict sex and drugs on MTV, but “you cannot see an advertisement for Tony the Tiger during the commercial break.” The school lunch guidelines are the first major nutritional overhaul of students’ meals in 15 years. Under the guidelines, schools would have to cut sodium in subsidized meals by more than half, use more whole grains and serve low-fat milk. They

to campaign aggressively in Iowa if she runs for the nomination. But only former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, who registers scant support in national polls, has visited Ecklund’s county, part of GOP-rich western Iowa. “There isn’t a whole lot of commitment or excitement for any one candidate yet,” Ecklund said. The biggest excitement in recent days has surrounded Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee. Her bus tour, which stopped Tuesday at the Gettysburg battlefield, Liberty Bell and New York City, is equal parts carnival, photo op and breezy history lesson. Her meeting and dinner with real estate mogul and almost-candidate Donald Trump did nothing to tamp down the frenzy and frothiness. Palin refuses to give reporters her schedule, and then gently upbraids them for their pell-mell efforts to locate, photograph and interview her. It’s not clear that she will run for president, and some suspect her “One Nation” tour is designed mainly to support her lucrative book sales and TV appearances. If Palin does run for president, many Republican strategists feel she will do poorly, as her combative nature has driven down her approval ratings among GOP voters and others. also would limit kids to only one cup of starchy vegetables a week, so schools couldn’t offer french fries every day. The starchy vegetable proposal has been criticized by conservatives who think it goes too far and members of Congress who represent potato-growers. They say potatoes are a low-cost food that provides fiber and other nutrients. The Republican spending bill also encourages the FDA to limit new guidelines that require calories to be posted on menus to restaurants, asking that grocery stores, convenience stores and other places whose primary purpose is not to sell food be excluded from the rules. The effort would dial back many of first lady Michelle Obama’s priorities in her “Let’s Move” campaign to curb childhood obesity and hunger. “This shows a very clear trend in trying to undermine some of the important gains in nutrition policy,” said Margo Wootan, director of nutrition policy at the advocacy group Center for Science in the Public Interest.

Eichers spend Memorial Auxiliary initiates three new members Day getting in garden
BY LOVINA EICHER It is a hot, humid Memorial Day afternoon as I write this. The younger children have tubs of water warming in the sun so they can have a water battle to cool off later on. Meanwhile, sons Benjamin and Joseph are taking turns mowing the grass. The girls are getting in the laundry, folding it and putting it away. My husband Joe is tilling the garden so I can put out plants later today. I have 80 tomato plants, 38 green peppers, 10 cabbage plants, and 64 hot pepper plants put out. It has been so wet and rainy this past week that only just now has the garden dried out for me to get the plants in. I am sitting outside at my new patio table writing this column. The table is at the southeast corner of our L-shaped porch. It is a very breezy spot and feels good when the weather is so hot. Verena has her hummingbird feeder hung on the porch which really attracts the hummingbirds. I like to watch them flutter about. The feeder was a gift to Verena and watching it and caring for it has become a pastime to her since she has been getting around with the aid of crutches these days. Several weeks ago her right foot started swelling up and was very painful. We had x-rays taken and it doesn’t show a fracture. We have also had quite a few blood tests taken and they show that her CPK level is very high. She has an appointment next week at a rheumatologist and hour away from here. We are hoping they will find out what is causing her foot to swell up and be painful like this. Thursday it will be a year since her brain concussion. She still has post-concussions but she is able to attend school during them now. Another step to recovery that we are very thankful for. We also appreciate all the information readers have sent about this condition. We would also be glad to hear more information of any kind from readers. Doctors say Verena is a very rare case and it would be helpful to hear from others who have gone through the same ordeal. Tuesday evening, we took supper in to Jacob and Emma’s with it being a year since the passing of dear, sweet Marilyn. We thought we might cheer them and make their evening go faster. Our neighbor, Glen, then came with a flower for Jacob’s while we were there. His wife had also passed away that same spring. We invited him to stay and eat with us. The children enjoyed the balloons he made into animals for them. The children kept him busy all night. We took a potato casserole, mixed vegetables, broccoli-cauliflower salad, watermelon and ice cream to Emma and Jacob‘s. We also took two rose bushes for them to plant in honor of Marilyn. Saturday, sister Liz, Levi and family came from Berne, Ind., to visit Emma and Jacob. They told Jacob and Emma that they would bring supper in with them. My sisters Susan and Verena and our family decided to go also and help with supper. Jacob and Emma were surprised to see brother Albert, Sarah Irene, and 7 children arrive also, driving in with horse and buggy from a nearby community. Albert’s live around 25 miles from here. On the menu Saturday night was grilled pork steak and hot dogs, French fries, potato-asparagus casserole, lettuce salad, watermelon, cake, chocolate chip bars, ice cream and so forth. Alberrt’s and Levi’s all stayed at Susan and Verena’s house for the night, although some of the children stayed at our house and at Jacob’s. In the forenoon Sunday, we all enjoyed a brunch at Susan and Verena’s house. They made a big breakfast casserole for everyone Also on the menu was watermelon, muskmelon, biscuits, cheese and cake. It was a rainy evening at Jacob’s on Saturday but Sunday turned out to be nice and sunny. In the afternoon, Verena and Susan grilled hamburgers for everyone before heading for home. Also on the menu were French fries, ice cream, cake, watermelon, muskmelon and chips. The children enjoyed making s’mores over the fire pit. Albert’s had a two-hour drive back home with their buggy and horses and Levi’s had a two-hour drive also but with a hired driver and van. The children were all tired and ready for a good night’s sleep. This morning we slept in later than usual since no one had to leave for work or school. God’s blessings to all.

Buckeyes facing uncertain future

Sedin twins’ path to Stanley Cup blocked by Bruins
By GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Daniel and Henrik Sedin have become hockey’s most formidable force over the past decade, passing and shooting their way to more than 1,300 career points with teamwork that borders on telepathy. Yet the Vancouver Canucks’ identical Swedish twins realize the enormity of the obstacle facing them in their first trip to the Stanley Cup finals. It’s a 6-9 defenseman with a pterodactyl’s wingspan and a well-earned reputation for shutting down superstars — and one of the NHL’s best goalies is right behind him. The Sedin twins’ attempt to solve Boston captain Zdeno Chara and star goalie Tim Thomas is at the heart of everything when the Canucks host the Bruins tonight in Game 1 of a series teeming with compelling matchups and subplots. “There’s a few big defensemen in the league but he’s obviously the biggest and the best,” said Daniel Sedin, the NHL scoring champion and a strong MVP candidate after his brother won both honors last season. “We’ll see how it goes but we see shutdown players in every game, so that part isn’t any different.” The only sure bet is that one championship drought will end for one long-suffering, hockeyloving city in a series matching Vancouver, the NHL’s best team for most of the season, against a surprising title contender that just might be peaking at the perfect time. “It’s going to be exciting to see what happens because we haven’t played each other enough to know those guys very well,” said Henrik Sedin, the playoffs’ leading scorer with 21 points. “It’s unpredictable.” The Canucks have never won it all, falling in their only two previous finals appearances in four decades of existence. Vancouver has pulled together with impressive depth and solid defense backing their star-studded top lines, winning the Presidents’ Trophy with 54 victories and 117 points before winning nine of its past 12 playoff games heading into the finals. The Canucks might be the best team ever assembled on Canada’s West Coast, yet they realize they haven’t done anything until they raise the Cup. “With the parity that is in the league, you’ve got to do a lot of things right for a long time,” Canucks coach Alain Vigneault said. “I do believe you’ve got to get some bounces. You get the bounces because you’ve been doing things right for a long time. I believe that Vancouver is due for 40 years of good bounces.” The Bruins traveled across the continent knowing they’re decided underdogs after squeaking into the finals with a Game 7 victory over Tampa Bay — their second Game 7 win of the postseason. Boston has lost its past five trips to the finals since Bobby Orr led the Bruins to their last title in 1972, failing even to make it this far since 1990. Yet with only moderate expectations and a largely star-free roster featuring no scorers in the NHL’s top 25, Boston survived a rough Eastern Conference run, forging a tenacity that might be enough to get past the Canucks, who didn’t exactly look unbeatable while losing three straight to Chicago in the first round. “You might never get a chance to do this again, so have fun with it,” said Mark Recchi, the 43-year-old forward from British Columbia who plans to retire if Boston wins it all. “Everybody is important now. You need basically five lines and eight defensemen to get to this point. If you don’t have that, you’re not going to get to this point.” These teams know little about each other, meeting just once in the regular season thanks to the NHL’s unbalanced schedule. They’ve had several days to study film and scouting reports but they know they won’t fully appreciate the Sedins’ brilliance or Chara’s ice-clogging force until they see it up close. The tallest player in NHL

history clearly intrigues the Sedins and their fellow Vancouver forwards. The Canucks struggled offensively in the second round against Nashville’s shutdown defensemen, Shea Weber and Ryan Suter, but bounced back with a dominant series against San Jose in the conference finals. Yet the Boston defense is equally fascinated by the Sedins, who joined the Canucks in 1999 in a masterpiece of draft-day maneuvering by Brian Burke. After a handful of difficult seasons, the twins returned from the 2004-05 lockout with an allout attitude that allowed them to develop into offensive virtuosos dominating the Western Conference. Boston is hoping both teams stay at full strength for most of the series. The Bruins have been the NHL’s best 5-on-5 team all season long but their power play is in a horrific playoff slump, scoring on just 8 percent of its chances compared to the Canucks’ 28-percent efficiency led by the Sedins. For all their differences in personnel and philosophy, Boston and Vancouver share one similarity: strong veteran goaltending. Just how similar? Thomas and Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo have the same 2.29 goals-against average in the postseason. Luongo bounced back from a 1-game benching in the first round to shut down San Jose’s offensive talent in the Western Conference finals, refocusing his mental game on the fly.

The Associated Press AL ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Evan Longoria hit a go-ahead 2-run homer in the eighth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Texas Rangers 5-4 on Tuesday night.

White Sox 10, Red Sox 7 BOSTON — Alexei Ramirez tied his career high with four hits and Philip Humber stymied Boston for seven innings.

Tigers 8, Twins 7 DETROIT — Brennan Boesch broke an eighth-inning tie with a sacrifice fly, leading the Tigers to the victory.

NL WASHINGTON — Danny Espinosa hit a pair of homers and drove in four runs to lead the Washington Nationals to a 10-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.

Pirates 5, Mets 1 NEW YORK — Neil Walker hit a 2-run single in the eighth inning off a game and gritty R.A. Dickey to help the Pirates rally past the Mets. Josh Harrison stroked a tying single witMcDonald allowed five hits in six innings against New York’s depleted lineup before Evan Meek (1-1) worked a perfect seventh. Jose Veras did the same in the eighth and Joel Hanrahan got three quick outs to end it. Dickey (2-6) took the loss. Brewers 7, Reds 2 CINCINNATI — Ailing Corey Hart homered and drove in four runs on a hot, muggy night, leading the Brewers to a victory over the Reds that broke their losing streak in Cincinnati. Hart missed two games over the weekend with a stomach illness. He hit a 3-run homer off Chad Reineke (0-1), who made his first big-league appearance in two years. Hart later singled home a run.

Padres 5, Braves 4 ATLANTA — Ryan Ludwick had an RBI single in the 3-run seventh, Heath Bell struggled to earn a fourth straight save and the Padres beat the Braves for their season-high fourth consecutive victory.

ninth to earn his 14th in 15 chances. Cardinals 4, Giants 3 ST. LOUIS — Skip Schumaker’s infield RBI hit capped a 3-run eighth inning, taking tough-luck Chris Carpenter off the hook in the Cardinals’ victory over the Giants. Albert Pujols and Allen Craig hit RBI doubles in the eighth before Schumaker got the go-ahead single against Javier Lopez (2-1) on a perfectly placed grounder between first and second. Schumaker’s headfirst dive into the bag beat the throw from second baseman Freddy Sanchez, who went far to his left to glove the ball. Astros 7, Cubs 3 CHICAGO — Cubs closer Carlos Marmol blew his third save of the season, allowing six runs in the ninth inning as the Astros beat Chicago. Jordan Lyles tossed seven brilliant innings in his debut but committed a throwing error in the eighth which cost him a chance to earn his first victory. He scattered five hits and struck out four and was charged with two runs, one earned. Fernando Rodriguez, Jr. (1-0) got one out to earn his first career win. Marmol faced seven batters and recorded just one out, a sacrifice bunt. He hadn’t allowed a run in 13 1/3 innings before the blow-up. Marlins 5, Diamondbacks 2 PHOENIX — Anibal Sanchez pitched eight effective innings and drove in two runs on chopping groundouts, helping the Florida Marlins end Arizona’s 7-game winning streak with a win over the Diamondbacks.

Heat rally, Dirk hurt, Miami wins Game 1
By TIM REYNOLDS The Associated Press
MIAMI — Dwyane Wade offered LeBron James congratulations for finally getting his first win in an NBA finals game. The Miami Heat are three wins from a much bigger celebration. And not only were the Dallas Mavericks beaten, their best player left battered as well. James scored 24 points, Wade scored 15 of his 22 points in the second half and the Heat beat the Mavericks 92-84 in Game 1 of the title series on Tuesday night — holding the Western Conference champions to their lowest point total of the playoffs after a dominant defensive showing down the stretch. “Feels good because it’s the first game and we played well as a team,” James said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do. ... That’s one in the books. We’re excited about this game. Tomorrow we prepare for Game 2 and I see ways we can get better.” That’s not good news for the Mavericks, who had plenty of their own problems to consider. Dirk Nowitzki scored 27 points — tearing a tendon in the middle finger on his left, non-shooting, hand during the game that was injured when he was stripping the ball from Chris Bosh and revealing afterward that he’ll likely wear a splint throughout the remainder of the series — and grabbed eight rebounds for Dallas, which got 16 points and 10 rebounds from Shawn Marion and 12 points from Jason Terry, most of those coming in an early flurry. It was Dallas’ fifth straight loss to Miami in finals games, dating to the Heat rally for the 2006 crown. Dallas held the Heat to 39 percent shooting, Miami’s secondworst showing of the playoffs. Problem was, the Mavericks shot 37 percent — by far, their worst night of the postseason. It was the first time since 2003 that both teams shot under 40 percent in a finals game. Dallas had been 7-2 when holding teams to those kind of numbers this season. Game 2 is Thursday in Miami. Wade’s 3-pointer with 3:06 left put the Heat up 82-73, then the largest lead of the game for either team. After Dallas got two points from Nowitzki, James gave the Heat their first double-digit lead of the finals a few seconds later, dribbling upcourt against Marion and getting clear for a dunk while being fouled. The free throw made it 85-75 and most in the sellout, white-clad crowd began standing in anticipation. Even then, it wasn’t over. Nowitzki made two free throws — he was 12-for-12 from the line for the game — with 1:36 left, cutting the Miami lead to six. A momentary blip. Wade grabbed a key defensive rebound,

dribbled away from three Dallas pursuers and found Bosh for a dunk with 1:08 left that restored the 10-point lead. Another dunk by James came with 38.6 seconds left, sealing the outcome. Miami outrebounded Dallas 46-36 (16-6 offensive), got a gritty effort on both ends from reserve Mike Miller — who left with his left arm in a sling but insisted he would be fine — and reaped rewards again from another strong fourth-quarter finish by Wade and James. Bosh scored 19 points and Mario Chalmers added 12 for the Heat. The Heat trailed by eight points early in the third quarter before pulling away, remaining unbeaten — now 9-0 — at home in these playoffs and snapping Dallas’ 5-game road postseason winning streak. Dallas had 51 points after 26 minutes. The Mavericks scored 18 points in the next 18 minutes, 33 over the remainder of the game, as Miami’s defense found another gear. Both teams expect to ride defense in this series and that was made perfectly evident in the opening 12 minutes. The teams combined to take 35 shots in the first quarter — and made 10. Dallas led 17-16 after the first quarter, which was the lowest 2-team output in the first quarter of Game 1 of a finals in the shot clock era, according to STATS LLC. It tied the fourth-lowest total for any finals quarter since 1955, bettering only the 30 points by the Magic and Lakers in Game 2 in 2009 and the 31 posted by the Jazz and Bulls in 1998’s Game 3 along with the Lakers and Celtics in 1969’s Game 4.

The tangle of a single jingle
DEAR BRUCE: Back when I was in high school I wrote a jingle for a very popular fastfood chain for fun and money. I believe the jingle would make a great commercial. I think it’s one of those songs that would stick in the public’s head, which makes for great advertising. How I can go about patenting my song? How do I approach the corporation? And how do I protect myself? -- Leslie, via email DEAR LESLIE: I really don’t want to be the one to pop your bubble, but, unfortunately, the chances of this type of thing being picked up by the fastfood places are less than slim. First, if you have a jingle it can’t be patented, but you can copyright it, which is a very inexpensive process. I would then contact the corporation and ask who their advertising agency is and you can submit it to them directly. Unfortunately, these agencies are very averse to using unsolicited material, but on the other side of that once it’s copyrighted you have nothing to lose. I really wouldn’t get my hopes up too high. DEAR BRUCE: Where can I put $250,000 to be insured by the FDIC? I want to be able to draw the interest or all of it as I wish. How much interest could I draw yearly not by touching the $250,000? -- Janice, via email DEAR JANICE: At the risk of being so repetitive, so many people ask me this question. In


Smart Money
today’s world, the interest that you earn is pitiful to a saver such as yourself. There are CDs that will pay over 1 percent or $2,500 a year in interest before taxes. You ask about insurance such as the FDIC. I don’t know anywhere else there is insurance available other than through the FDIC. While the $250,000 would be completely covered as I indicated, the interest that you will receive is pathetic. Furthermore, on the real short-term CDs, the interest may very well be under the 1 percent. If you go into a longerterm, while the interest can be drawn down, (if you wish to get out the principal) there will be penalties. I wouldn’t make a long-term commitment to get a higher rate of interest since I do believe that interest rates will be creeping up. I certainly hope so.

Eighteen Roselawn Manor employees honored for service
SPENCERVILLE — Rarely in today’s world of employment can an organization boast of employee longevity. Yet Roselawn Manor, managed by HCF Management Inc. of Lima, recently honored 18 employees for over 20-plus years of service to the care community, at the exclusive annual Platinum Club Celebration held in Lima. “Employee longevity is one of the exceptional characteristics of Roselawn Manor which results in the incredible care that each staff member provides to the residents. I am honored every day to work with 18 individuals, which with their years of service added together have been at Roselawn Manor and in long-term care for 449 years. In the long-term care industry the average turnover ratio of employees is around 75 percent. This high turnover means that residents have different caregivers during the course of their care in most nursing facilities,” Roselawn Manor Administrator Shanna Holland said. “However, at Roselawn Manor, the turnover ratio for 2010 was 25.53 percent! Our residents receive the finest care from the same employees who grow to love and nurture the residents as if they were their own family.” Overall, HCF recognized over 348 employees who have 20 or more years of service with HCF Management in both the Ohio and Pennsylvania facilities. The employees were honored with a celebratory luncheon, awards ceremony, and a special cloisonné pin. The staff at Roselawn Manor is pleased to recognize the following employees for their devotion to providing outstanding care to their residents: Joyce Maag, 36 years; Susan Tidwell, 32 years; Leona Browning, 31 years; Sue Laman, 30 years; Marcia

Grothause, 28 years; Jeanne Somers, 26 years; Annette Mullins, 24 years; Miriam Davis, 24 years; Marcia Perkins, 24 years; Paula Ball, 23 years; Teresa Perkins, 23 years; Mary Savidge; 23 years; Cheri Wells, 22 years; Penny Buckmaster, 21 years; Karen Keeling, 21 years; Gwen Clark, 21 years; Jennifer Holmes, 20 years; and Ruth Hurst, 20 years. Roselawn Manor has been serving the Village of Spencerville and Spencerville Township for over 42 years with Five-Star Rehabilitation Care, Skilled Nursing, and soon, to be offering assisted living.

MCS can be a real and crippling disease
DEAR DR. GOTT: Multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) is a crippling problem for those who suffer from it. I would like to educate people about the problem because most people think that I’m crazy or that “just getting fresh air” will resolve the problem. The effects of chemicals used in personal and laundry products act as neurotoxins on my system, resulting in neurological difficulties -- diminished cognitive function, loss of equilibrium, fogging vision, etc. Local drugstores and laundry-detergent aisles are lethal vats of poison for MCS sufferers. I am a massage therapist and have asked clients to refrain from wearing fragrance, but I have found their use of fragrant laundry products more dangerous than cologne. In particular, dryer sheets are extremely poisonous and cannot be purged from the room just by airing it out. I urge people to investigate the toxicity of their laundry products. I react violently to these products, but I have to feel that the poisons are affecting people in ways they may not know. Clothes are in constant contact with people’s skin, which absorbs chemicals into the body. Many people complain of chronic sinus problems and headaches. Perhaps it is the environment they are creating for themselves. Clothes dryers venting the fumes outdoors pollute the air for everyone. I am becoming a hermit and a “crazy old lady” because of MCS. I know the world can’t change because of my affliction, but maybe if people would investigate the problem of “fragrance” in their products, they might begin to search for alternatives for their own health. Ever wonder what all of those wonderful air fresheners that puff at you as you walk by are doing to your health? Please ask your readers to check the health risks of all those chemical ingredients and follow the websites regarding MCS. There are millions of sufferers. I am constantly vigilant for detoxing products just to be able to go out in public. I can’t go to movies,

friends’ homes, most stores or outdoor activities with crowds. Having people come to my home and making it inhospitable is a nightmare. DEAR READER: Multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) is a somewhat controversial topic. There are some who believe it is a true disease, while others argue that the immense variety of symptoms can often be explained by other, well-established disorders. From what I was able to find, there has not been much research done since the late 1990s. I did note that in a 1999 position statement by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, the condition received a new name -- idiopathic environmental intolerance. This is just the newest in a long history of name changes, including multiple chemical sensitivity, chemical injury, chemical sensitivity, environmental illness, sickbuilding syndrome and more. Being unfamiliar with MCS before your letter and knowing only what I was able to learn from research, I am on the fence about this condition. The condition might be real, but not enough research has been done regarding symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. There are plenty of online sources for information, but most refer to information more than 10 years old. I invite readers to send me personal experiences and any recent research that has been done. Readers who are interested in learning more about allergies can order my Health Report “Allergies” by sending a selfaddressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order to Newsletter, P.O.

He comes from a very dysfunctional family, and none of them speaks to the others. My ex, who is helping to pay for the wedding, insists that no invitations go out to any of his family. He has threatened to walk out if any of them attend. However, unbeknownst to him, our daughter has developed a good relationship with her “Aunt Marie and Uncle John.” They have been there for her and contributed so much to her life. They even put hours of labor into upgrading her newly purchased home. Obviously, my daughter very much wants to invite this aunt and uncle.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Thursday, June 2, 2011 Join any club or organization in the year ahead that promotes activities in your field of endeavor, because it could be just the ticket you need to propel yourself forward in your line of work. What you learn will prove to be valuable. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Others might cave in on many things coming at them all at once, but not you. In fact, the more that’s put on your plate, the more exciting it is and the better you’ll like it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Use your wit and humor not only to get your points across, but also to make it easier for others to remember what you’re telling them. Levity can be a powerful tool. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -You’re better off spending your day with companions who don’t take themselves or life too seriously. It’s these blithe spirits who can arouse your zest for life, something you can use right now. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -How easily an objective of significance can be achieved is dependent upon how well you adjust to circumstances that are likely to alter your tactics and challenge your alacrity. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- It’s an excellent day to share knowledge with people in the know. You can be enlightened by information they have, and in exchange they can learn from you. Both will feel gratified. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Look for ways and means to grow financially through other than your usual sources. You might discover something in another area that could be quite profitable. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It isn’t generally a good idea to let others do your thinking for you, but you might experience an exception and benefit from a suggestion made by another. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Conditions are ripe for staging a meeting of the minds with one who usually disagrees with you. Now is the day to approach that person on something for which you need cooperation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- There’s a good chance you could be exposed to a totally new social interest. It might not be perfect, but it’s likely to fit a momentary need in your life right now. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Put aside your outside interests for the moment and spend your spare time with your family. It could prove to be one of your more rewarding moments in life. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -This is an excellent day to make those much-needed contacts that will help you take care of your commitments. You shouldn’t have any trouble reaching the right people in order to handle important matters. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- No one needs to tell you to be prudent in the management of your funds; that’s something most bulls do automatically. Yet you might need to keep a closer eye on your spending.
