It’s My Hobby

Hoehn considers dollhouse-making therapy
BY STACY TAFF DELPHOS — When Renee Hoehn had her hip operated on in 2009, she went a little stir crazy. Unable to work to fill her days, she dove back into a hobby she had put aside during the years she drove her kids back and forth from school and sporting events: making dollhouses. Hoehn and her husband Dan made their first dollhouse in 1983, a farmhouse. “The farmhouse was one of the less expensive ones but it had a lot of pieces. It took a long time to put together; we lost count after 250 hours.” Hoehn said. “Dan builds them and then I make all of the furniture and decorations. The next one we built was the mansion, which we started in 1991, and it was a lot more expensive. They called it the ‘Cadillac of kits.’ Dan covered the exterior with these little bricks, one piece at a time.” “When I had my hip operation, I couldn’t go anywhere and it got pretty bad so I just jumped back into this and went at it like a maniac,” she continued. “And then last summer I had my other hip done and said I wasn’t going to quit and went on to make all of the rugs and curtains. It’s really therapeutic for me, even if I’m just coming in here now and looking at everything.” With her passion for dollhouse making, Hoehn has pulled family and friends into the fun. “My daughters have made some themselves, for 4-H,” she said. “They each got grand champion; my daughter Chanda with her sweet shop and my daughter Edana with her produce stand. We’ve made other little things together, like a fairy forest and then my mother had a general store. When we got the farmhouse, Dan and I decided it would be for Chanda and we kept saying Edana needed a house now, too. So, after my grandma died, she left some of her money to us and it wasn’t really that much, so we used it to get the mansion when we were in New York. My mom was tickled that that’s what we used it for. Then when mom died, she left us a little bit of money too and with that, I bought all of the little appliances in here.” When you take pictures of the inside of the dollhouses, the Hoehns say they could almost pass as life-size homes because of how detailed the furnishings are. “Anything you can possibly want or think of for a house you can order in miniature,” Dan said. “And you can find several price ranges with each item.”

Dutch Hollow closed Monday
Dutch Hollow Road will be closed from East Road to Allentown Road from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday for tree removal.

TUMC June Jubilee Wednesday

Trinity United Methodist Church will host its annual June Jubilee at 4 p.m. Wednesday. Items on the menu include chicken and beef sandwiches, potato salad, homemade baked beans, macaroni salad and strawberry shortcakes, strawberries, angel food cake, fruit pies, ice cream and drinks offered dine-in or carry-out. A free will offering will be accepted (suggested donations per item will be posted).

Renee Hoehn stands with her husband Dan and their current dollhouse project, a lighthouse they began two years ago. Although Hoehn says her husband humors her with her dollhouse wishes, she feels it’s therapeutic for him as well. “Back when he was laid off of work for a while, he worked a lot on these and he would be working until 2 or 3 in the morning sometimes. It’s his therapy, too,” she said. “And he’ll do pretty much whatever I ask. Like with the lighting, these things

Arizona wildfire expected to spread to New Mexico
By SUSAN MONTOYA BRYAN Associated Press square miles of forest, an increase of 114 square miles from a day earlier, officials said Friday. Lighter winds Thursday and Friday helped the 3,000 firefighters on the lines make progress, but critical fire conditions remain, said Jim Whittington, a spokesman for the teams battling the fire. High winds were expected to return with a vengeance today. “We have until then to get as much work as we can done and get to the point where we can sit back and watch the winds come,” Whittington said. Fire crews plan to try to strengthen what lines they’ve been able to establish and continue burning out forested areas in front of the main fire to try to stop its advance. It was officially just 5 percent contained Friday, but the actual numbers likely are higher, Whittington said. The advances came on the fire’s north side, near the working-class towns of Springerville and Eagar on the edge of the forest. Nearly 10,000 people have been evacuated from the two towns and from several mountain communities in the forest. “I can’t even speculate on when we can let people back in, but I can tell you we’re not going to let people back in until we can be sure they will be safe and don’t have to leave again,” Whittington said. On Friday, fire officials gave reporters the first look at two of the mountain communities — Alpine and Nutrioso — in nearly two weeks, driving them through the deserted resort towns and surrounding areas. Some stands of trees in the forest were untouched while others looked like blackened matchsticks sticking up through lingering smoke. Firefighters were working in the area, using drip torches to light fires and burn out undergrowth. Deer and elk grazed in unscorched areas, while wild turkeys walked through tall grass along the road. Two miles south of Alpine, whole hillsides of ponderosa were decimated. The two Arizona-Texas power lines were still in the fire’s path, although Whittington said he was less concerned about them Friday. El Paso Electric has warned its 372,000 customers that they may see rolling blackouts if the lines are cut. The fire is the secondlargest in state history and could eclipse the 2002 Rodeo-Chediski fire in size, although only a fraction of the homes have burned. The Chediski began as a signal fire and merged with the Rodeo, which was intentionally set by a firefighter who needed work. Together they burned 732 square miles and destroyed 491 buildings. The current Wallow Fire in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest has destroyed 31 homes or cabins, including 22 in the picturesque mountain community of Greer, Whittington said. Two dozen

Dutch group stops in Delphos

Cincinnati and they want to make it up to Michigan to see some Dutch farms,” said Facility Manager Tony Matney. “They happened to be traveling through and requested a brief overview of the Bunge process. We originated in Amsterdam in the 1800s and they stopped just as part of the travels.” The group is part of an organization called NAJK International. The group flew into DC June 5, visit-

outbuildings and a truck also were lost and five homes damaged in Greer when the fire moved in Wednesday night. A DC-10 tanker made three retardant drops near the community Thursday, and officials hope that by today the threat will be much less. Five homes were confirmed destroyed in Alpine and Nutrioso, and fire officials were trying to confirm if two others may have been lost. Much of the growth toward New Mexico has been from fires started by crews trying to burn out fuels ahead of the blaze so it can be stopped, Whittington said. That technique allows the fires to be controlled and less hot. But there is little doubt it will cross the border, he said. “This fire is eventually going to get there, so we want something to check it when it does,” he said. The fire doesn’t appear to have moved into New Mexico yet, Catron County Undersheriff Ian Fletcher said. He said fire crews were cutting down trees and burning fuels along U.S. 180 near the Arizona border. “I’m not sure when we’re going to get to the point of it actually getting here,” he said at midday Friday. Residents of about 100 homes in a subdivision near the border were still being kept away, and about the 200 residents of Luna were prepared to evacuate. Both Luna and the county seat of Reserve were being powered by a large generator because of worries that electricity to the area would be cut, Fletcher said. Deputies have gone to scattered homes in a remote area known as the Blue Range on the state line south of Luna to warn people that they should leave. “Some have, some haven’t,” Fletcher said. “You always have some who say they’ll be OK and then they have to scramble and try to get out at the last minute.”

the Clean Canal Club
My husband and I are throughly enjoying our little guy Ringo. We are so proud when the cage is clean (going on 7 weeks now!) and his food bowl is licked clean. He’s more often than not a member of the CPC - Clean Plate Club. Today you all have the opportunity to become a member of a club, too. The Clean Canal Club. Today marks the annual canal cleanup before the Fourth of July celebration. Men, women and children alike will put on their work clothes, gloves and boots and pick up trash. I have seen some pretty odd things in the canal. In addition to the usual bicycles, pop bottles and plastic grocery bags, there have been toilet seats, high chairs, tires, trash cans, Christmas trees and the list goes on and on. I believe some appliances have also found their way in our waterway. Sad when you think about it. The Miami and Erie Canal started as a way for Ohioans to move goods in and out of the state in a more timely and cost-effective manner. Many a man died while digging the trench we would one day fish out of and ice skate on, oblivious to the sacrifices made to better lives. Whether you love, hate it or have no feelings one way or the other, the canal is here and needs to be cared for. I feel embarrassed when the Fourth of July rolls around and despite the effort of so many

For The Record Joplin tornado survivors The Delphos develop rare infection Herald NANCY SPENCER surgical removal of affectBy JiM sUHr and
BiLL DrAPer Associated Press JOPLIN, Mo. — In the aftermath of the Joplin tornado, some people injured in the storm developed a rare and sometimes fatal fungal infection so aggressive that it turned their tissue black and caused mold to grow inside their wounds. Scientists say the unusually aggressive infection occurs when dirt or vegetation becomes embedded under the skin. In some cases, injuries that had been stitched up had to be reopened to clean out the contamination. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that it was conducting tests to help investigate the infections, which are so uncommon that even the nation’s largest hospitals might see only one or two cases a year. “To my knowledge, a cluster like this has not been reported before,” said Dr. Benjamin Park, head of the CDC team that investigates fungal diseases. “This is a very rare fungus. And for people who do get the disease, it can be extremely severe.” Three tornado survivors who were hospitalized with the infection have died, but authorities said it was unclear what role the fungus played in their deaths because they suffered from a host of other serious ailments. “These people had multiple traumas, pneumonia, all kinds of problems,” said Dr. Uwe Schmidt, an infectious disease specialist at Freeman Health System in Joplin. “It’s difficult to say how much the fungal infections contributed to their demise.” The infection develops in two ways: when the fungal spores are inhaled or when a tree branch or other object carrying the fungus pierces the flesh. Most people who get sick by inhaling the spores already have weakened immune systems or diabetes. But healthy people can become sick if the fungus penetrates their skin. The fungus blocks off blood vessels to the infected area, causing tissue to turn red and begin oozing. Eventually it becomes black. If diagnosed in time, the infection can be treated with intravenous medications and ed tissue. But it’s considered exceptionally dangerous, with some researchers reporting fatality rates of 30 percent for people infected through wounds and 50 percent for susceptible people who breathe it in. Small numbers of cases have been reported after some disasters, but Park said it’s the particular circumstance of the wound — not the disaster itself — that creates the risk. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has received reports of eight suspected deep-skin fungal infections among survivors of the May 22 twister, which was the nation’s deadliest single tornado in more than six decades. All of the patients had suffered multiple injuries. Also Friday, Joplin officials raised the death toll from the twister to 151, a figure that includes the recent deaths of the three people who had the fungus. Schmidt said his hospital treated five Joplin tornado victims for the infection, which is formally known as zygomycosis (zy’-goh-myKOH’-sihs). In 30 years of medical practice, he said, he had seen only two cases. Both involved patients with untreated diabetes. Joplin officials say more than 1,100 people have been treated for injuries after the storm, many of them from objects sent flying by the twister. “These were very extensive wounds,” Schmidt said. “They were treated in the emergency room as quickly as possible.” A week after the tornado, patients began arriving with fungal infections. Doctors had to reopen some wounds that had been stitched closed because the injuries had not been adequately cleaned, Schmidt said. After the infections set in, doctors “could visibly see mold in the wounds,” Schmidt said. “It rapidly spread. The tissue dies off and becomes black. It doesn’t have any circulation. It has to be removed.” The fungus “invades the underlying tissue and actually invades the underlying blood vessels and cuts off the circulation to the skin,” he said. “It’s very invasive.”

On the Other hand
people who want the canal to be an asset, there is still trash along the waterline. Sometimes it is there the next day after a cleanup. Tsk, tsk. When we were growing up along the canal, you were taught that nothing went in the water but a fishing pole, muskrat trap or frog gig. Trash belonged in a trash can, not in the waterway. That pretty much went for wherever else you were, too. (I mean the trash can thing, not the frog gig.) If we were all more conscientious, the canal could be an attractive bonus in Delphos. I know it takes work. The weeds along the sides are tenacious. But its worth it when you can look down one way or the other and notice the water or the ducks and not trash. Anyway, if you’re not doing anything this morning after you finish this and that cup of coffee, throw on some clothes you don’t care about and head to Stadium Park to help make the canal and us look a little better.

Saudi Arabia production boost sends oil lower
NEW YORK (AP) — Saudi Arabia’s still the boss when it comes to oil. The world’s biggest oil exporter plans to increase production to 10 million barrels per day, the highest level in 30 years, according to a Saudi Arabian newspaper. Analysts see this as a bold step by the Saudis to reassert their dominance over OPEC after the 12-member group this week denied its request to increase production. “They’re reminding everyone who the sheriff is in town,” independent analyst Jim Ritterbusch said. Oil prices sank 2.6 percent Friday. Benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude for July delivery lost $2.64 to settle at $99.29 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. That erased most of the gains that followed OPEC’s meeting on Wednesday. If Saudi Arabia follows through, the country will increase production 13 percent from May. This will add another 1.14 million barrels per day to the market, helping to close a shortfall in supply. OPEC says world demand will exceed supply by 1.45 million barrels per day in the third quarter. The U.S. Energy Information Administration puts the shortfall at 1.81 million barrels per day. The last time Saudi Arabia produced that much oil was August 1981, according to the Energy Information Administration. The Saudis have maintained that oil prices are too high, even after a recent decline. At the end of April, oil was up 25 percent for the year and U.S. gasoline prices were up 28 percent, near an average of $4 per gallon. Americans have cut back on driving to compensate, according to industry surveys. But gas is still up 21 percent since January, at $3.72, and experts warn that the economy will struggle to grow as long

as consumers are paying high pump prices. More than anything, Saudi Arabia wants to avoid another price crash like the nearly 70 percent plunge that occurred in the second half of 2008. Back then, demand fell off a cliff when oil rose to nearly $150 per barrel. This week, Saudi oil minister Ali Naimi pushed for higher production among OPEC members. But Iran and several other countries disagreed, delivering Saudi Arabia a very public rebuke. Friday’s report in al-Hayat newspaper gave investors a glimpse at how the Saudis will respond. “They’re going to unilaterally decide for themselves when to supply the market,” analyst Andrew Lipow said. The quick end to Wednesday’s contentious meeting in Vienna had some proclaiming the beginning of the end for the 12-nation group. But others pointed out that most OPEC countries already are producing above their quotas. Some fence-mending might be in order, but OPEC isn’t going away, said Oppenheimer & Co. analyst Fadel Gheit.

The Better Business Bureau serving West Central Ohio has been receiving reports of businesses being contacted and given large orders for merchandise, services, or food that turn out to be bogus. The items ordered may vary, but the game is the same; a caller using the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) relay system places a large order, promises to pay with a credit card. When the caller thinks he has the confidence of the victim, the amount to be put on the card is increased and the perpetrator asks the balance be sent via Western Union back to him for “shipping or handling.” The credit card turns out to be stolen or counterfeit and the business ends up holding the bag. The caller uses the relay system, designed for persons who may have a communications handicap, to keep from being identified or located. Here are the red flags: 1. Call comes via relay system 2. A large order is placed 3. Caller suggests the order is for a local charity, church or non profit organization. (These people do research before they call to determine what’s going on in the community such as charity drives, events, fairs, etc.). 4. The business is asked to put more on the credit card than the invoice amount 5. The caller uses a familiar sounding name, usually borrowed from some celebrity such as Cruise, Elvis, Jackson, etc. If a business receives such a call, get all the information from the caller, which will not be much, and report it to the FCC and the Better Business Bureau.

Man gets life in prison for 1993 child rape
TOLEDO (AP) — An Ohio man convicted of the 1993 attack and rape of a 10-year-old girl who was riding her bike in a wooded area was sentenced Friday to life in prison with parole eligibility. Bradley Roberts, 44, was indicted in November and found guilty by a jury on May 10 of one count each of rape, kidnapping and gross sexual imposition in the attack on the girl in Sylvania Township near Toledo. The victim, now 28, was tearful as her attacker was sentenced in Lucas County Common Pleas Court, The Blade of Toledo reported. She didn’t speak during the court hearing, but later told the newspaper that she was relieved that man who eluded authorities for nearly two decades was being held accountable and that she had “never thought he would be found.” The victim had testified that she was riding her bike to fields about a mile from her home when she was attacked and raped. She said it was the first time she had been given permission to go somewhere alone. The man covered her face and threatened her not to tell, she said. Roberts was charged in the case after a test of the DNA found on the girl identified him as a suspect through DNA collected from him in other convictions. A DNA analyst testified that Roberts’ DNA was found to be “consistent” with the DNA on the victim and that the likelihood of anyone else having the profile was one in 1.197 billion. Judge James Jensen imposed the mandatory sentence of life for rape because the victim was less than 13 years old, but Roberts was sentenced under the law in place at the time of the crime and will be eligible for parole in 10 years. Roberts also was sentenced to 10 to 25 years for kidnapping, to run concurrently, and 4 to 10 years on the gross sexual imposition charge, to run consecutively. The attorney appointed to handle Roberts’ appeal did not immediately return calls Friday.


On the banks of yesteryear ...
From the Delphos Canal Commission
One of the most popular displays at the Canal Commission Museum is the Bridal Display, which features dresses from the 1890s through the 1950s. Although they are beautiful to look at, they also reflect the changes and events of our society. Early weddings in America were generally private affairs, held at the home of the parents of the bride or groom, with an announcement being made in church the following Sunday. Most wedding dresses were made at home or, for the wealthy, by a dressmaker. As the Industrial Revolution (1820-1870) progressed, a definite middle class sprang up; and by the 1890’s almost every bride that so desired could be married in a “new” wedding dress. The turn of the century saw wedding dresses become increasingly more elaborate until the onset of World War I when supplies were limited. At that time styles became simpler and also reflected the changing role of women in society with hems getting shorter. The typical 1920’s dress was a white knee-length dress that was worn with a long train. A clochestyle wedding veil was also worn. During the Great Depression, brides either wore their best dress for the wedding or purchased something practical that could also be worn after the wed-

Landmark to be destroyed for casino parking
CLEVELAND (AP) — Despite objections from preservationists, a panel in Cleveland has agreed to demolish a century-old office building to provide parking for the city’s new casino. Thursday’s vote by the Cleveland Landmarks Commission was a close 4-3. The eight-story Columbia Building will come down and will be replaced by valet parking for the nearby casino, going into downtown’s old Higbee department store. The Plain Dealer newspaper reports Cleveland Councilman Joe Cimperman warned commission members that if they delayed the demolition it could put the casino project in jeopardy. President Kathleen Crowther of the Cleveland Restoration Society lamented the loss of the Columbia Building, a designated city landmark. She said once it’s gone, it can’t be rebuilt. The Cleveland casino is one of four approved by Ohio voters in 2009.

ding. Sometimes it would be a white dress that would be dyed a darker color and sometimes it was simply a suit. Women felt it was their duty to give up the traditional wedding during World War II. Another factor was the last minute marriage proposals before a soldier was shipped overseas, which did not leave enough time to plan a big ceremony. With the entire nation behind the war effort, a new dress was almost impossible to find anyway, so again, the best dress or suit had to do. If both the bride and the groom were in the military they were married in their uniforms. The 1950s was a time of prosperity and wedding dresses included a lot of lace, thanks to the end of wartime restrictions on fabric. They were fashioned after the popular qualities (for women) of the day: sensibility, modesty and femininity. The social upheaval during the 1960s caused many brides to reject the cookiecutter standards of the 50s and opt instead for attire (not always a dress) that was unique to them and reflected their personality. It wasn’t until Princess Diana’s wedding in 1981 that the traditional wedding dress came back into vogue as each bride strived to be a princess ... at least for a day. Now we have a new princess bride who has set the style with a tradiCash in on your collectibles with the Classifieds.

COLUMBUS — Ohio’s adult smoking rate for 2010, just released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, was 22.5 percent, increased from 20.3 percent in 2009. This rate increase ends a long trend of declining tobacco use. The increase comes as no surprise to tobacco-prevention advocates who have been warning of an increase in smoking rates since funds for tobacco prevention and cessation programs have been cut from the state budget. “It’s disturbing to see years of progress beginning to reverse because of a lack of investment in programs that saved lives and employed hundreds of Ohioans,” said Shelly Kiser, director of advocacy, American Lung Association of Ohio. “Now, thousands more Ohioans’ lives are at risk and the state will be paying even more to treat tobacco-related illnesses.” Since May 2008, when the majority of funds from the Master Settlement Agreement were taken from tobacco prevention and cessation programming, only minimal sums, insufficient to make an impact on smoking rates, have been allocated to tobacco prevention and cessation, and most community tobacco prevention and cessation programs throughout the state have been dismantled because of a lack of funding. The current version of the upcoming biennial state budget, now in conference committee, includes no funding for tobacco prevention and cessation programming. Annually, smoking costs Ohio $4.37 billion for health care, $1.4 billion of which is the portion covered by the state Medicaid program (More than 40 percent of Medicaid recipients in Ohio smoke, almost twice the state rate). Productivity losses account for another $4.85 billion in tobacco-related costs to the state. Including both the federal and state tax burden, the average Ohio household pays $618 per year from smoking-caused government expenditures. “Our increasing smoking rate is preventing us from reaching our goal of being the family- and employerfriendly state we want to be,” said Kiser. “Without funding for tobacco prevention and cessation in the

state budget, Ohio taxpayers will continue to foot the bill for increasing tobaccorelated costs in Ohio. ”Currently, the state budget has $0 allocated to tobacco prevention and cessation, which means there is no money to enforce the Smoke-Free Workplace Act, provide cessation counseling using the Ohio Quitline beyond a minimal amount mandated federally for pregnant women or provide community or in-school prevention or cessation programs. “There is a simple solution to this problem. By fixing a loophole in the difference between the tax on cigarettes and non-cigarette forms of tobacco, the legislature can generate funds to bring programs back and, once again, send our smoking rates into a decline,” said Kiser. “We call on the legislature to fix this loophole and fund prevention to prevent yet another generation of Ohio’s youth from becoming addicted to tobacco.” About The Investing in Tobacco-Free Youth Coalition The Investing in TobaccoFree Youth Coalition brings together a diverse group of organizations with a common goal of reducing the toll that tobacco takes on the people of Ohio. The Coalition is seeking to make “other tobacco products” – including spit tobacco, little cigars and cigars – less appealing to youth by correcting the inequity between the other tobacco products tax and the cigarette tax. The campaign is a coalition of more than 60 businesses and health organizations including the American Lung Association, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, Association of Ohio Health Commissioners, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Children’s Defense Fund, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio Health, Ohio State Medical Association and Universal Healthcare Action Network (UHCAN) Ohio.

“People do not believe lies because they have to, but because they want to.” — Malcolm Muggeridge, British author and commentator (1903-1990)


This and

Millie’s garden
on top of her. Her home is located on a portion of the family farm. Since returning to Ottoville, she has been active in church and county activities. She achieved her Master Gardener (of Putnam County) certificate in 1998 and has been a trustee on the Putnam County Historical Society since 1998. Millie took over the position of archivist at the Immaculate Conception Church Museum, upon the death of Rita Turnwald. She was chairman of the committee that compiled and published the Putnam County History & Families and serves on other committees for the historical society, such as the Historical Church Tour and the booth at the Putnam County Fair. Millie has two ponds on her property. The one measures 2/3 of an acre and has fish in it. The other is a smaller frog pond with no fish, because the fish would eat the little tadpoles. She has the big pond surrounded by flowers, with sweet potato plants draping the banks. However, this spring the rabbits have been real pests, by eating the sweet potato plants.
In two weeks we will visit Millie’s garden again to learn about her many varieties of trees and shrub, along with the composting she does.

Millie Ruen’s marigolds and sweet potato plants around the pond.
Millie Ruen lives in a garden. Her cozy little country home near Ottoville, is surrounded by beautiful flowers, trees, shrubs and vegetables. She doesn’t have to worry about mowing a big lawn but she is very passionate about all the plants and trees, which surround her home. Just take a Sunday drive down Road 24, between Ottoville and Fort Jennings and you will notice this land of color — changing color, depending on which flowers are in bloom. You can’t miss this oasis, because it covers three acres of gardening. Her array of plants includes perennials and annuals, such as marigolds, peonies, allium, petunias, begonias, zennias, lilies, iris, Siberian iris, salvia, rudbeckia (Indian Summer), lavender, cocks combs, geraniums dahlias, celosia, yarrow, calenda, coleus, wisteria, tanzy, hollyhocks, hostas, mums and more. There is always something blooming in her garden from spring until fall. Millie has some Knock-out Roses but she shies away from floribunda and tea roses because of all the spraying they require. Last year Millie grew a 14 foot sunflower, with over 900 blooms. Her drive-way is lined with yellow and orange marigolds, which she started from seed under the grow lights in her basement. Millie started 30 flats of flowers under light this year. She is a big believer in composting, which produces notable results in her plants. Millie also has a large vegetable garden, which includes: tomatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic, beans, peas, celery, cabbage, carrots, radishes, sweet corn and even popcorn. Millie was born to Aloysius and Loretta (Hilvers) Ruen on their farm near Ottoville. She has four brothers and four sisters. They are Paul, Fred, Roger and Joe Ruen, Marilyn Calvelage, Catherine Heitz, Irene Bullard and Mary Honigford. Her brothers and sisters have provided her with many nieces and nephews. Each year at Christmas, Millie sends out a letter, but it is not your typical Holiday letter. In her letter, she tells family stories of when they were growing up. They are very interesting. Millie shares her country home with her trusty little watch dog, Jock. Millie graduated from Ottoville High School in 1959 and is a 1963 graduate of Mary Manse College in Toledo. She taught school two years in Toledo and then moved to Columbus, where she taught 29 years in the inner city schools. While living in Columbus, she played ASA softball and AAU basketball. Her Columbus softball team, the “Red Birds” won the state championships during her first and second years with the team. The Red Birds earned a spot at the Nationals in Wisconsin and North Carolina. Millie was chosen a National All Star during the tournament in Sheboygan. She played left field and had a really good arm. Millie played college basketball at Mary Manse, and then went on to play semipro basketball in Columbus. Her team earned a spot at the Women’s National Tourney in Gallup, New Mexico. While at Mary Manse, the girls played the old time “half court” game — three on offense and three on defense. Millie retired from teaching and returned to Ottoville in May of 1997. She lived in her basement while construction of the house was completed

A-Rod, Yankees beat Indians 11-7 in testy game
By MIKE FITZPATRICK The Associated Press NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez hit a colossal home run, Curtis Granderson also connected and the New York Yankees got back on track with an 11-7 victory over the skidding Cleveland Indians in a game that quickly grew testy Friday night. Yankees manager Joe Girardi and Cleveland counterpart Manny Acta got into a face-to-face screaming match when both benches and bullpens emptied after Mark Teixeira was hit by a second-inning fastball from struggling Indians starter Fausto Carmona. No punches were thrown and there appeared to be little pushing and shoving — if any. Plate umpire Dale Scott issued warnings to both teams and there was no further trouble. Ivan Nova (5-4) pitched seven sharp innings for New York and Derek Jeter had one hit to move within nine of 3,000. Jorge Posada, breaking out of a season-long slump, added three hits and an RBI on a night when his figurine was handed out to fans. One of them sat on a ledge near the Yankees dugout as he singled home a run to cap a 3-run first. Posada has four straight multihit games, raising his average from .169 to .215. Bouncing back from a 3-game sweep by the rival Red Sox, New York sent a wild Carmona (3-8) to his fifth straight loss and finished with 15 hits. The Yankees had dropped 10 out of 14 at home. Robinson Cano had three hits and an RBI and Teixeira stroked a 3-run double that made it 10-2 in the seventh. Rodriguez followed with an RBI double. In the fourth, the 3-time MVP hit his 625th career homer into the second row of bleacher seats in left-center. The ball sailed some 450 feet, beyond a loading-bay ramp that sits between Monument Park and the visitors’ bullpen. Yankees staff members could not remember a home run ever reaching that area at the new stadium, which opened in 2009.
Red Sox 5, Blue Jays 1 TORONTO — Clay Buchholz allowed three hits over seven innings, Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for -5 with three runs scored and Boston beat Toronto 5-1 on Friday night, the Red Sox’s seventh straight win to match their season high. Buchholz (5-3) struck out six and walked two as he ended a career-long run of four straight no-decisions. AL RBI leader Adrian Gonzalez drove in a run with a fifth-inning single. He drove in another run with a ground-rule double off reliever Shawn Camp in the ninth that made it 5-1. Kevin Youkilis and Dustin Pedroia drove in a run each for Boston, which improved its league-best record to 37-26. Pedroia finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for Toronto starter Jo-Jo Reyes (2-5) and dropped the Blue Jays to .500 (32-32). Mariners 3, Tigers 2

Carlos Santana homered for the Indians, barely clinging to first place in the AL Central. Coming off a 1-6 homestand, they have lost 12 out of 16 overall. The opener of a 4-game series was the first meeting this season between the teams.

DETROIT — Carlos Peguero homered and tripled starting in place of Ichiro Suzuki in right field for Seattle. The struggling Suzuki was given the night off. Peguero, a rookie playing his 26th majorleague game, helped Seattle overcome a 2-1 deficit. He tripled in the fifth and scored the tying run. Then in the seventh, he hit a towering fly ball down the right-field line off Brad Penny (5-5) that stayed a few feet fair as it went over the wall. Chris Ray (3-1) pitched the sixth and seventh innings for Seattle. David Pauley worked the eighth and Brandon League the ninth for his 18th save. Victor Martinez hit a 2-run homer, one of only five hits for Detroit. Detroit is 9-3 in its last 12 games. Orioles 7, Rays 0 BALTIMORE — Nick Markakis broke a prolonged power slump with a grand slam and a 2-run double and Jake Arrieta took a no-hitter into the sixth inning for surging Baltimore. J.J. Hardy hit his second leadoff homer for the Orioles, who have won four straight to get within a victory of .500 (3132). Hardy reached base all five trips to the plate and scored three runs. Markakis’ third career slam, off rookie Jeremy Hellickson (7-4), put Baltimore up 5-0 in the second inning. Markakis had gone 88 at-bats without an extra-base hit. He drove in two runs in the eighth to establish a career high with six RBIs. Arrieta (8-3) walked two before Sam Fuld led off the sixth with a double. He allowed two hits over seven innings and moved into a tie with Boston’s Jon Lester for the AL lead in

wins. Mike Gonzalez worked a 30-pitch ninth to complete the 3-hitter. Athletics 7, White Sox 5 CHICAGO — Scott Sizemore hit a go-ahead 3-run double in the ninth inning to rally Oakland, which ended a 10-game losing streak. The A’s won their first game under Bob Melvin. Oakland made the majors’ first managerial change of 2011 by firing Bob Geren after 4-plus seasons Thursday. Trailing 5-3 in the ninth, White Sox closer Sergio Santos (2-3) retired the first two batters and had Josh Willingham in an 0-2 count before walking him. Hideki Matsui followed with an RBI single to cut the lead to a run. Santos walked Daric Barton and hit Kurt Suzki to load the bases. Sizemore then split the left-center gap to give the Athletics a 7-5 lead. Grant Balfour (4-1) pitched a scoreless eighth for the victory and Andrew Bailey pitched a perfect ninth. Paul Konerko hit a 2-run homer and A.J. Pierzynski had three hits for the White Sox. Rangers 9, Twins 3 MINNEAPOLIS — Michael Young had three hits and three RBIs and Adrian Beltre added two hits and drove in two for Texas. The Rangers sent 11 batters to the plate and scored a seasonhigh seven runs in the second inning. C.J. Wilson (7-3) allowed three runs and eight hits in seven innings. Brian Duensing (3-6) lasted two innings and allowed seven runs (3 earned) and seven hits for the Twins. Sal Butera had a career-high three hits and an RBI for Minnesota and Michael Cuddyer had two hits and an RBI.

The Herald — 7


From the Ohio Division of Natural Resources CENTRAL OHIO Delaware Lake (Delaware County) This 1,017-acre lake north of Columbus consistently provides quality crappie fishing. Crappies move to deeper areas with cover as the water temperature warms; try fishing drop-offs with stumps or other wood; these must be 9 inches or longer to keep. Channel catfish can be caught in cut baits and shrimp, especially in the upper part of the lake. For largemouth bass, fish shoreline cover, riprap and secondary drop-offs with crankbaits, tubes and creature baits; these must be 12 inches or longer to keep. Kokosing Lake (Knox County) - This 149-acre lake is limited to outboard motors of 10 horsepower or less. Largemouth bass are being caught around shoreline cover and along the dam using crankbaits and tubes. Bluegill are in shallow areas, try wax worms or night crawlers under a bobber. Crappies have moved to deeper water. Use minnows or crappie jigs fished under a slip bobber around cover or the old creek channel for best results. Channel catfish can be caught on chicken livers, shrimp, or night crawlers fished on the bottom. NORTHWEST OHIO Ottawa Reservoir (Putnam County) – Bluegill are being caught in the mornings by casting a wax worm or a white twister tail grub. The south dike is producing the best catches. Ferguson Reservoir (Allen County) – Bluegill are being caught during the daytime by still-fishing wax worms, nightcrawlers and crickets or by casting jigs. Near the boat ramp is the best spot. Crappies are also being taken in good numbers, being caught mornings, afternoons and evenings by still-fishing wax worms, nightcrawlers and crickets, or by casting jigs. The east and south banks seem to be the best spots for crappies. Lost Creek Reservoir (Allen County) – Saugeye are being taken at all times of the day and night by drifting nightcrawlers and leeches and by trolling bottom-bouncers and worm harnesses all over the reservoir. Bressler Reservoir (Allen County) – Channel catfish are being taken at all times of the day and night by still-fishing, using slip bobbers, or balloon-fishing nightcrawlers and shrimp all over the reservoir. Walleye are also being taken during the dawn, dusk and night; fishing leeches and nightcrawlers under a slip bobber is working well, as is drifting or trolling worm harnesses and shallow crankbaits. The east and south banks seem to be producing the best catches. NORTHEAST OHIO Spencer Lake (Medina County) – A few reports of evening catfish bites have begun to trickle in; look for the bite to turn on full swing in the next week or so. This 78-acre lake provides ample shoreline opportunity to hook into these nighttime fishing delights. Catfish are bottom feeders that rely mainly on their sense of smell to find food; the stinkier the bait, the better. Try a nightcrawler, sticky dough baits, cut bait, or chicken liver on bottom for best results. Shreve Lake (Wayne County) - The catfish bite is picking up on this 62-acre lake as well; target these fish the same way as mentioned above. The bass bite has been solid with a few Fish Ohio!-sized bass being reported. Action has been most consistent by anglers using chartreuse- and shad-colored spinner baits. Zepernick Lake (Columbiana County) - Leaping to another type of report, frog season opened Friday and will run through April 30, 2012. Only bullfrogs and green frogs may be legally taken; not more than 10 may be taken or possessed at any time. Frogs may not be shot except with a longbow and arrow; this lake and surrounding water can offer some exciting late-night action. Enjoy the season and be safe! SOUTHWEST OHIO Acton Lake (Preble County) – Good numbers of channel catfish are being caught using shrimp, cut bait and chicken livers fished on the bottom under a bobber or by tight-lining baits on the bottom. Successful catfish areas include the more shallow waters near the boat ramp or along the dam; night fishing produces the best results. Bluegill 6-8 inches in length are being taken on red or wax worms fished around woody cover found in 6- to 15-foot depths. Great Miami River & Twin Creek (Montgomery County) - The GMR is producing many saugeye and walleye. Although not large in size, many 10- to 12-inch fish are being caught. Methods vary by location and experience but minnows are really hot now; try them under a small jig and with a twister tail fished fairly slowly along the bottom, a great combination for about anything in the river, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, saugeye/walleye and channel catfish. Twin Creek is a pristine smallmouth location; use a canoe, kayak or jump on in with your old shoes or waders for some hot action. Tube baits are popular, as well as crayfish imitations, minnows or small spinners. When the river is at normal pool is the best and safest time to fish/boat and it is easy to find the deep pools; the big fish lay in these pools to keep cool, so give these spots a try. SOUTHEAST OHIO Veto Lake (Washington County) – Crappie, sunfish, catfish and largemouth bass have all been biting at this 160-acre lake. For crappie, fish a minnow under a bobber at 2 feet off the bottom along woody vegetation. For sunfish, try worms or minnows under a bobber; the best locations have been near the picnic shelter and the boat ramp. Fish for largemouth bass using crankbaits – green colors hold this week’s popular vote; cast out along banks, quick drop-offs and vegetated areas and reel in slowly. Channel catfish can be fished for at night using cut baits, chicken livers and nightcrawlers; several have been reeled in weighing 8-12 pounds. Tycoon Lake (Gallia County) – An 18-inch minimum length limit is in effect on this 204-acre lake and helps to produce top-quality largemouth bass angling; use rubber worms or spinner baits along the old fencerows or over other submerged structure. Bluegill have been caught on jigs and wax worms fished a few feet deep. For dusk to dawn fishing, fish for channel cats using chicken livers, nightcrawlers or other cut bait in shallow areas. LAKE ERIE The daily bag limit for walleye is 6 fish; the minimum size limit is 15 inches. The daily limit for yellow perch is 30 per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. The steelhead limit is 5 per angler through Aug. 31; the minimum size limit is 12 inches. The Lake Erie black bass (largemouth and smallmouth) limit is closed to possession through June 24. Western Basin: Walleye fishing is improving and has been best around West Sister Island, off of Niagara Reef, N of West Reef, E of North Bass Island on the Canadian border and along the Canadian border E of Gull Island Shoal. Fish have been caught by trolling with divers and spoons, in-line weights and worm harnesses and crankbaits. Fish can also be caught by casting mayfly rigs or drifting with bottom-bouncers and worm harnesses. Yellow perch fishing has been best E of Ballast Island, E of the Kelleys Island airport and S of Gull Island Shoal using minnows on perch-spreaders fished near the bottom. Central Basin: Walleye has been good NW of Lorain in 46 feet of water, 48-50 feet N of Rocky River, 32-38 feet and 52-56 feet N of Edgewater Park, 32-42 feet NW of Fairport and 47 feet NW of Geneva. Anglers are using stick baits such as rapalas, husky jerks and bombers, as well as spoons and worm harnesses. Yellow perch fishing has been very good at 35-40 feet NW of Gordon Park in Cleveland, 28-38 feet NE of Wildwood State Park, 42-52 feet NW of Fairport, 35-40 feet N of Geneva and 47-53 feet NW of Ashtabula. Perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Shore anglers are catching fish off East 55 St. Pier in Cleveland and Headlands Beach Pier out at the lighthouse. Anglers are using spreaders with shiners in the mornings have been best. Smallmouth bass fishing has been very good in 15-25 feet around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut using soft-craws, leeches, dark green and red tube jigs, blade baits and crank baits. Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating. OHIO RIVER Meldahl Dam to Cincinnatti (Clermont/Hamilton counties) – Channel catfish are being taken in good numbers; try chicken livers, shrimp, or nightcrawlers fished on the bottom. Greenup Dam (Scioto County) – Anglers along the concrete walkway and the riprap of the Greenup tail waters have had fair success fishing hybrid-striped bass and white bass using cut skipjack or live shad. Successful artificial baits included white jigs with a 3-inch twister tail. Sauger fishing has been fair with average catches ranging from 8-14 inches. Water clarity has been murky at times during rainfall events.

YOUNGSTOWN — Alisha Anthony earned a number of honors during her track and field career at Youngstown State University. For example, the 2006 graduate of St. John’s High School and the 2011 graduate of YSU was Horizon League Scholar-Athlete of the Month for April this spring, as well as being named a 2-time Horizon League Field Athlete of the Week this outdoor track season. She was named to the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Horizon League Academic All-League team for Indoor Track & Field and to the 2009 and 2011 Horizon League Academic All-League team for Outdoor Track & Field. She helped Youngstown State’s women’s track & field team finish runner-up at the 2011 Horizon League Track & Field Championships, winning the long jump and triple jump events at the All-Ohio Championships and placing fourth in both events at the prestigous Penn Relays. At the Duke Invitational, she won the long jump, recording a leap of 5.75 meters and took fourth-place in the triple jump. She set the school’s longjump mark of 6.02 meters (19-9) at the Sea Ray Relays in the 2010 outdoor season, qualifying for the NCAA East Regional (finishing 41st), as well as setting the school’s triple-jump mark of 40-3 1/2 at the 2009 league championBy GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press

Canucks edge Bruins, move to brink of NHL title
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Every other scoring tactic had failed over the last three games, so Vancouver defenseman Kevin Bieksa made something up. He deliberately put a shot wide of the net in Game 5, knowing Boston goalie Tim Thomas couldn’t stop himself from reacting to it. The next moment was a study in hockey geometry. The puck caromed off the boards behind Thomas’ net to the far side, where Maxim Lapierre gratefully banged it into the only sliver of net Thomas couldn’t cover. That’s how goals are scored against two goalies who look unbeatable. That’s why the resourceful Canucks are one win away from hoisting the Stanley Cup for the first time. Lapierre scored the only goal with 15:25 to play, Roberto Luongo stopped 31 shots in a stirring shutout after getting pulled from his last game and the Canucks took a 3-2 series lead with a 1-0 victory over the Bruins in Game 5 on Friday night. The Canucks have scored just six goals in five Stanley Cup finals games against the brilliant Thomas, yet they’re one victory away from their first NHL championship. Thomas was almost perfect in Game 5 after shutting out the Canucks in Game 4 but Luongo was thrilled after Bieksa and Lapierre used the Boston star’s aggressive style against him to manufacture a historic goal. Game 6 is Monday night in Boston and the Stanley Cup will be there. Luongo posted his fourth shutout of the playoffs and second of the Stanley Cup finals after a pregame walk on Vancouver’s picturesque seawall to clear his mind. Luongo was pulled from Game 4 but coach Alain Vigneault stuck with him for Game 5. The Olympic champion was only occasionally spectacular but he still narrowly outplayed Thomas, who has received just two goals of support from his teammates in three games in Vancouver. Neither team found an offensive flow in a Game 5 nail-biter but Luongo kept Vancouver in it until Lapierre’s goal set off a crazy celebration among tens of thousands of fans thronging downtown Vancouver. After Vancouver’s Tanner Glass missed a backhand on an open net one period earlier, Lapierre was more than ready to put it behind Thomas for just his second goal of the postseason, pumping both fists frenetically in celebration. Lapierre was a late-season acquisition who largely serves as an agitator for the Canucks, not a scorer. He’s never managed more than 15 goals in a season and he had just six this season while playing for Montreal, Anaheim and Vancouver. Thomas made 24 saves in Game 5 but lost his shutout streak of 110 minutes, 42 seconds dating to Game 3. With injured forward Nathan Horton’s jersey hanging in the visitors’ locker room, the Bruins’ power play regressed to its previous postseason struggles, going 0-for-4. Thomas made only one mistake but it was enough. The Canucks hung on for their sixth straight home playoff victory since May 7. The home team has won every game in the series. In the last 21 times the finals were even going to Game 5, the winner went on to claim the Cup 15 times — yet Colorado (2001), Tampa Bay (2004) and Pittsburgh (2009) all overcame Game 5 losses to win it in the past decade. Luongo receives more criticism than almost any goalie with his level of accomplishment at hockey’s most elite levels, yet he has shown resilience throughout the postseason. He came back from a one-game benching in the first round against Chicago with a 2-1 victory in Game 7 and Vigneault unhesitatingly stuck by Luongo in the finals, ignoring widespread trashing of his $10 million goalie after Boston’s 8-1 and 4-0 home wins. Luongo didn’t hesitate to take his seawall walk among the Vancouverites who equally love and mistrust him. He did it once before in the postseason, clearing his mind before knock-

ships. She was named the Field Newcomer of the Year in the 2008 outdoor season (as a medical redshirt) and as a freshman in the 2006-07 indoor season. However, with her 19-5 1/4 jump at the NCAA East Regionals late in May, she ended her collegiate career. “They take the top 12 to the nationals. I was four inches away from making the nationals, so I am done,” Anthony, daughter of Stephen and Margaret Anthony of Ohio City, began. “My track career is over. I graduated with a degree in exercise science and I plan to go on for my doctorate in physical therapy; that will take me three years in the program here. I also plan to help out as a coach while I’m continuing my education.” Though her active track career is over, her running is not. “Out of my eight brothers and sisters, they were all long-distance runners. My dad has competed in marathons and that’s what I plan to do; start preparing for 5K and 10K races,” she explained. “I was the only one in the family that ‘had’ to go for sprinting and jumping, so now I’ll be going to them for advice in how to prepare for the longer distances.” That is a far cry from what she did in high school and college. She did the 100- and 200-meter sprints in high school and the outdoor college season, adding the 55and 60-meter indoor races at the next level. She was a

Her personal bests in the sprint categories at college include 12.37 in the 100meter dash, 25.57 in the 200, 7.82 in the 60-meter dash, 7.65 in the 55-meter dash and was also part of the 4x100meter relay. She left high school as a 2-time winner and 2-time runner-up in the long jump, setting the Division III state mark of 18-9 1/2 as a junior, and helped anchor the 400and 800-meter relays that

I got better each year in each event in college,” she added. “I’m glad it’s over because between indoor and outdoor season, as well as off-season training, it’s all year around. It’s a good experience to go through. I have a lot of good memories and made a lot of good friends along the way but it’s time to move on.” ing out the defending champion Blackhawks in Game 7 of the first round. The Canucks were grateful to return to Rogers Arena, where they eked out two 1-goal wins to open the series on late goals by Raffi Torres and Burrows. Vancouver seemed to be in control when the club left Canada last weekend — but then the Bruins seized charge of the series with two inspired performances after Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome’s late hit knocked Horton out for the series with a concussion early in Game 3. Boston is still having tremendous defensive success in the finals, holding 2010 league MVP Henrik Sedin without a point and limiting NHL scoring champion Daniel Sedin to one goal. Vancouver’s power play is 1-for-25 in the finals — yet the Bruins just haven’t scored timely road goals to back up Thomas, who allowed one goal in two games in Boston. Boston had three early power plays in Game 5 and controlled long stretches of play but couldn’t crack Luongo. Chris Kelly hit Luongo’s crossbar with an early shot and Luongo made a stunning point-blank save on Patrice Bergeron’s rebound shot from the slot during Boston’s third power play. Vancouver killed another Boston power play and survived several dicey sequences in the second period before taking control of play midway through the game.

Karlsson grabs 3-stroke lead with 65 in Memphis
By TERESA M. WALKER The Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Robert Karlsson keeps playing better and better at TPC Southwind. The Swede could be on track for his first PGA Tour title if he keeps it up. Karlsson is focused only on his next round. Karlsson shot a 5-under 65 on Friday to take a 3-stroke lead after the second round of the St. Jude Classic. He started a stroke behind firstround leader David Mathis and carded six birdies and a bogey to reach 9 under. Karlsson, who lost here a year ago in a playoff with Lee Westwood, has played his first six career rounds at the course under par with this his lowest score yet. Karlsson is ranked 23rd in the world and has 11 career European Tour titles. Colt Knost (68) and Keegan Bradley (67) were tied for second. Bradley, the Byron Nelson Championship winner two weeks ago, is among a few who can earn a spot next week in the U.S. Open at Congressional by winning his second tour event since the last Open. John Merrick (69) was 5 under and Fredrik Jacobson (65) and Harrison Frazar (65) were another stroke back. Brandt Snedeker, The Heritage winner in April, shot a 66 to top the group at 3 under that included Mathis (72). With 83 making the cut at 2 over, David Toms (5 over) and Sergio Garcia (7 over) were among those who made an early departure for Congressional. Karlsson credits the lessons learned on his first practice round here a year ago to avoid hitting into the rough on this 7,239-yard course as much as possible to better set up shots into the greens. Temperatures in the high 90s the past couple weeks have firmed up the Champion Bermuda greens. Starting at 4 under and teeing off on No. 10, Karlsson birdied his second hole and finished the back side with birdies on three of the final four holes. He hit an 8-iron to 8 feet on the par-3 11th to set up his first birdie. He saved par on Nos. 12-14 and then hit a wedge from 106 yards to 7 feet to take advantage of a front pin position on the par-4 15th to start his birdie string. Karlsson found the rough with his tee shot on the par-5 16th but recovered by hitting a wedge from 124 to 5 feet for a second straight birdie. He stuck a 7-iron from 175 yards to 4 feet on the par-4 18th to reach 8 under. He made the turn and birdied the par-4 first after hitting his second shot within 4 feet of the pin despite being 124 yards out in the primary rough. When Karlsson rolled in a 14-footer on No. 6 for birdie, he became the first player to reach double digits below par at 10 under. Karlsson dropped a shot with his lone bogey of the round and just his second this week when he 3-putted from 34 feet on the par-3 eighth. Bradley admitted to being a bit tired at Memorial following

his win at the Byron Nelson Championship. He missed the cut and said he and his caddie got back to doing what worked in Texas. He had a bogey-free round with three birdies. Knost is among the Nationwide Tour graduates from 2010 playing well here. The SMU graduate who turned pro in 2007 has made the cut in eight of his 16 PGA events this year and in good position for his best finish yet. LPGA State Farm Classic SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Mindy Kim maintained her 2-stroke lead in the LPGA State Farm Classic, following her opening career-low 64 with a 5-under 67 to reach 13 under. Kim had seven birdies — four in a row on Nos. 12-15 — and two bogeys in the Panther Creek course. Top-ranked Yani Tseng (66) and Shanshan Feng (65) were tied for second. Jiyai Shin aced the par-3 second hole en route to a 68 to reach 10 under.

The Herald –9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Sunday, June 12, 2011 It might be long overdue, but because of your established abilities and talents you could find yourself in a leadership role among your peers during coming months. Others will be looking to you for fresh ideas and activities. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Whether you’re looking to do so or not, you could find yourself making all the plans for you and your friends. You’re the one with all the best ideas. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -You might get the chance to spend some quality time with someone you like a lot. It may be a bonding session where each of you will discover what you can do for one another. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you’ve got some ideas on how to improve your lot in life, take positive measures to put them into play. Once you move on things, Lady Luck could then jump in and lend a helping hand. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Don’t be afraid to put into action some ideas you have that could elevate your position with your friends. You have the ability to arouse stimulating activities among your peers. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Certain things you recently learned about some of your peers can be put to good use. A few colleagues might possess some skills that can be used to everyone’s benefit. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Even if this is not a workday for you, you might learn about something that would benefit you greatly when you are on the job. Make your plans, so you’ll be ready to put them into action tomorrow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Someone you meet could potentially become a very good friend down the line. Whatever it is that joins you together, its benefits will be long-lasting. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An involvement in which you partake might become the vehicle that leads to fresh opportunities for you in the future. Lady Luck might be responsible for this. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- This is one of those days when new friends and/or interests might become part of your life. Anything in which you get involved is likely to prove fruitful. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -You’ll be ready to drop certain things, activities or people who have proven to be unhelpful. Something that occurs at this time will be responsible for your new vision. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Don’t sit any longer on plans to make your life better that you’ve spent a lot of time formulating in your head. Nothing will happen until you put your hopes into action. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Give priority to matters that could make you a little extra money, whether they be planning ahead for the future or doing something right now to bring in those extra bucks. Monday, June 13, 2011 Even if you should have to work a bit harder than usual in the year ahead, go for brass ring. Your earnings will not only increase, but there are also likely to be some residual benefits. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Unless you manage your assignments strategically, your projects could begin to overlap and end up in one big jumbled mess. Don’t try to do too many things at once. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You don’t like to be controlled, so understand that others don’t like to be manipulated either. If you try to run them, you’ll not only meet with resentment but anger as well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Fail to think for yourself and you invite others to make decisions for you. Unfortunately, the wrong people will usually take the opportunity to use it to their advantage. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Be prepared to back up any claims you make, because there are always those who will challenge your statements, especially if what you say could affect them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- When dealing with a friend, it is extremely important that you conduct everything in a businesslike fashion. If you don’t, either you or your pal could feel taken advantage of. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -If you realize a decision you made is a real stinker, don’t feel obligated to go through with it. Mistakes that are not corrected are destined to lead to nothing but trouble. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Problems are likely to arise with persons who are either working for you or with you, if you don’t deal with them very carefully and diplomatically. Be full of care and tact. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Unfortunately, it could be quite easy for you to take a flyer on a flimsy enterprise. Slow down your involvment in any investment proposal until you have time to investigate it thoroughly. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Be careful about being unduly insistent upon having your own way, regardless of the reason. You stand a chance of alienating someone whose cooperation you need. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -People will not take caustic remarks lying down. If you make a nasty gibe about someone, it will quickly be reported to that person and thrown right back at you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Unless you stay on top of your spending, given half a chance your extravagant inclinations could easily get the best of you. It’s to your advantage to be prudent, indigent. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It behooves you to keep a cool head if you find yourself having to contend with more work than you think is reasonable. It’s being given to you because you’re the one who can do it.

and things, so I told Dan that I just wanted one light switch to turn on and have all the lights come on at once. So he wired it here along the edge and now I don’t have to worry about that.” A lot of the items in the house have been contributed by family and friends who wanted to get involved. “Several of the quilts on the beds were sewn or crocheted by friends of mine and my boss carved these little wooden animals,” she said. “And my daughter, whose really tech-savvy, took all of my family photos and miniaturized them for me. People are just really enchanted with it and like to contribute something. Everything in here has a purpose and it all has sentimental value. I love it. This is what I do.” The Hoehns’ current project is a lighthouse they started two years ago. “I saw this lighthouse kit and wanted it, so I said ‘oh this could be for Brandon,’ my son, which is how I justified it,” Hoehn laughed. “He doesn’t want it and makes jokes about how when we’re gone he’ll sell it at a garage sale, but it gave me an excuse to get it. We’re eventually going to paint the outside with a white, red and blue stripe and then the inside I really want to be painted like exposed brick. I’m working on finding the furniture now. It will have the light up top and everything. We have two sailors in there and Dan said ‘aren’t they too big?’ The scale for this is one inch to one foot, and so we measured them and they’d be five and a half feet tall. I think they’re perfect. Short and stocky.”

Palin emails show her coping with rise to VP slot
By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press JUNEAU, Alaska — As Alaska governor, Sarah Palin struggled with the gossip about her family and marriage. As newly minted Republican vice presidential nominee, she was dismayed by the sudden onslaught of questions from reporters, especially one about whether she believed dinosaurs and humans existed at the same time. She also dealt with death threats. At least once, she prayed for strength. Other times, she fired off messages to her aides, most fierce when the subject was defending her record or her family. The glimpse into Palin came in more than 24,000 pages of emails released Friday from her first 21 months as governor. They showed a Palin involved closely in the day-to-day business of the state while trying to cope with the increasing pressures that came with her rise from small-town mayor to governor to national prominence. The emails were packed into six boxes, weighing 250 pounds in all, stacked in a small office in a complex of buildings near the state capitol in Juneau. Within minutes of the release, Palin tweeted a link to the website for “The Undefeated,” a documentary about her time as governor and her arrival on the national political stage. Her supporters, meanwhile, encouraged everyone to read the messages. “The emails detail a Governor hard at work,” said Tim Crawford, the treasurer of her political action committee, Sarah PAC, in a prepared statement. Palin is among the top tier of potential 2012 presidential candidates in polls of Republican voters. Her recent bus tour of the Northeast fueled speculation about her national ambitions. She has said she has not yet decided whether she will run. Many news organizations, including The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and, began scanning and posting the emails on their websites throughout the day. The New York Times asked readers to join reporters in reviewing the documents. Tidbits of the emails were featured on blogs and Twitter. “It’s insane,” said Tony Leadholm, an academic counselor at the University of California, Davis and a Republican who finds Palin too conservative for his taste. “It seems anywhere you go, the release of these emails is in your face and there’s war going on and actual real people who have actually declared their intent to run for president.” The emails were first requested during the 2008 White House race by citizens and news organizations, including The Associated Press, as they vetted a nominee whose political experience included less than one term as governor and a term as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. The nearly three-year delay in releasing the material has been attributed largely to the sheer volume. Lawyers went through every page to redact sensitive government information. Another reason was the nearly 500 open records requests during Palin’s tenure, and the state’s decision to deal with smaller, easier ones first. The emails cover the period from the time Palin took

office in December 2006 to her ascension to GOP vice presidential candidate in September 2008. In the months before she became presidential nominee John McCain’s running mate, the emails showed a governor dealing with complaints, rumors and gossip about her family. In several, she asked about the identity of someone who alleged that she had not buckled her son, Trig, properly into his car seat. In another, she lamented about gossip about her family and marriage. Palin and her daughter, Bristol, appeared to be traveling in a car, and Bristol emailed a Palin staffer in July 2008: “Mom and I were just praying about the hurt and anger that comes with her job. Thank you for your faith in God. “We share it and we love you!” Bristol wrote, from her mother’s personal email account. The emails portrayed Palin as a close reader of news accounts, wanting to correct things she believed to be — or were in fact — wrong. “Will ktuu (an Anchorage TV station) and adn (Anchorage Daily News) be corrected re: the “internal investigation”? I did not request it, as they are both reporting,” she wrote in an Aug. 13, 2008, email. After she was elevated to the national ticket, news organizations began vetting Palin’s record. She was accused of essentially turning over questions about her gubernatorial record to McCain’s campaign managers, part of an ambitious GOP strategy to limit any embarrassing disclosures and carefully shape her image for voters in the rest of the country.

Flooding overwhelms Montana
By MATTHEW BROWN and STEPHEN DOCKERY Associated Press BILLINGS, Mont. — Emergency workers ferried supplies to more than 300 people cut off Friday by flooding that has overwhelmed Montana towns and caused an estimated $8.6 million in damages to date. Heavy rain and the runoff from record mountain snowpack have caused rivers over much of the West to spill from their banks. Montana has been hit particularly hard over the past few weeks, with hundreds of homes inundated and scores of roadways swamped. River levels were retreating throughout the state on Friday, but more rain this weekend was expected to cause flood waters to linger across southeastern Montana. There, roads washed out by the raging Musselshell River left people in a sprawling rural neighborhood in the hills outside the town of Roundup with no way to get out. Stranded residents were able to call in grocery orders that emergency officials delivered by boat, said Cassie Degner, a local volunteer firefighter. A trailer filled with water, diapers and other essentials had been brought into the neighborhood before access was lost Wednesday. Mary Brower, 81, said she had not been able to get into town since May 20 and the roads have further deteriorated since that time. “They’re going to bring in my medications today by, I don’t know, rowboat or whatever,” said Brower, who suffers from congestive heart failure. Up the road from Brower, rancher George Smith said he and his wife, Loris, were rationing gasoline but otherwise planned to get by with “a few cans of different stuff we have on hand.” “My wife makes corn bread and I’m a bean maker,” Smith said. “We might get to fighting a little bit, but we’re good for another week anyway.” Authorities in Roundup began pumping out a portion of the downtown that has been swamped twice since the Musselshell started to rise in late May. Workers also were scrambling to rebuild a makeshift dike along the edge of town that was overtopped and severely eroded earlier in the week. The main highway out of Roundup to Billings reopened Friday after being closed for two days when it was under water. Repairs on the road into the cut-off neighborhood were not expected to begin for several days because portions of it remained under water, said Musselshell County Commissioner Sue Olson.

Another boatload of groceries and other supplies was to be ferried into the neighborhood Friday evening. The Musselshell River was forecast to drop slightly Friday before rising again to stay above major flood stage until Sunday. “As soon as the water comes down it comes back up. We’re at the mercy of the river — and it’s not so forgiving lately,” Degner said. Gov. Brian Schweitzer estimated the flooding has caused more than $8.6 million in damage across the state since the end of May. That figure was included a Thursday letter to President Barack Obama in support of a previous request for a disaster declaration. Schweitzer’s office said it could rise with additional damage. The request for federal assistance covered 31 Montana counties and four Indian reservations. Schweitzer, who is traveling in China, reviewed the letter before it was sent to Obama, spokesman Jayson O’Neill said.
