Iran unveils underground missile silos
By ALI AKBAR DAREINI The Associated Press TEHRAN, Iran — Iran on Monday unveiled underground silos that can carry missiles capable of hitting Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf as it kicked off 10 days of war games, the country’s latest show of military force amid a standoff with the West over its disputed nuclear program. State TV broadcast footage of deep underground silos, claiming that medium- and long-range missiles stored in them are ready to launch in case of an attack on Iran. The silos are widely viewed as a strategic asset for Iran in the event of a U.S. or Israeli attack on its nuclear facilities. Col. Asghar Qelichkhani, a spokesman for the war games, said the silos “function as a swift-reaction unit.” “Missiles, which are permanently in the vertical position, are ready to hit the pre-determined targets,” he was quoted as saying by state TV. An officer in Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard, which is in charge of the missile program, said Tehran has constructed “numerous” underground missile silos which satellites can’t detect. He did not elaborate. The state television report broadcast footage of underground launching pads for the Shahab-3 missile, which have a range of more than 1,240 miles (2,000 kilometers)— putting Israel, U.S. bases in the Gulf region and parts of southeastern and eastern Europe within reach. The report also showed pictures of missiles being fired from one silo after a large metal roof opened to Delphos, Ohio allow the missile to launch. The TV report said the missile silos are linked to a missile control center. The commander of the Guard’s Aerospace Force, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, touted the silos as a crucial asset in its standoff with the West, saying that with “these facilities we are certain that we can confront unequal enemies and defend the Islamic Republic of Iran.” Another unidentified Guards officer told state TV that “only few countries in the world possess the technology to construct underground missile silos. The technology required for that is no less complicated than building the missile itself.” Israel, which views Iran as an existential threat, has accused Tehran of receiving assistance from North Korea in building underground missile sites. But Col. Qelichkhani said the silos are based on local technology developed by Iranian experts. The Iranian war games, which began Monday, are dubbed “The Great Prophet Six” and include tests of long-range missiles such as the Sajjil, which boasts a range similar to that of the Shahab-3 missile. Iran conducts several war games every year, as part of its military self-sufficiency program that started in 1992, and frequently unveils new weapons and military systems during the drills. The Islamic Republic remains locked in a standoff with the West over its nuclear program, which the U.S. and its allies suspect is aimed at developing atomic weapons. Iran denies the charges, and says the program is only for peaceful purposes.

Ottoville OKs 2012 budget

BY CORTNEY MUMAUGH Staff Writer OTTOVILLE — Ottoville Village Council approved the budget for 2012 at Monday’s meeting. Expenses are expected to total $1,150,428.88, which include $456,110 in the General Fund; $206,560 for street construction; $12,300 for state highway; $4,000 for permissive tax; $23,300 for police; $129,086.88 for water; $237,947 for sewer; $70,000 for sewer reserve; $10,000 for water reserve; and $1,125 in utility deposit. A tanker fire truck was approved for purchase for $236,844.13. A grant will pay for $225,000 and the remainder will be paid by the townships. Mayor Ronald Miller was approved to sign the storm sewer easement for the Von Sossan property. Council also approved to switch to a new division of American Electric Power to lock in a price for electricity. This program is available for commercial use. The price will be locked in for 24 months. An added fee is a meter charge of $5 per meter per month; Ottoville currently has 12 meters. Even with the added cost, it is expected to save the village around $6,800 a year. The Village of Ottawa is also enrolled in this program.

Court: Can’t ban violent video sales to kids
By JESSE J. HOLLAND The Associated Press WASHINGTON — States cannot ban the sale or rental of ultraviolent video games to children, the Supreme Court ruled Monday, rejecting such limits as a violation of young people’s First Amendment rights and leaving it up to parents and the multibilliondollar gaming industry to decide what kids can buy. The high court, on a 7-2 vote, threw out California’s 2005 law covering games sold or rented to those under 18, calling it an unconstitutional violation of free-speech rights. Writing for the majority, Justice Antonin Scalia, said, “Even where the protection of children is the object, the constitutional limits on governmental action apply.” Scalia, who pointed out the violence in a number of children’s fairy tales, said that while states have legitimate power to protect children from harm, “that does not include a free-floating power to restrict the ideas to which children may be exposed.” Justices Stephen Breyer and Clarence Thomas dissented from the decision, with Breyer saying it makes no sense to legally block children’s access to pornography

yet allow them to buy or rent brutally violent video games. “What sense does it make to forbid selling to a 13-yearold boy a magazine with an image of a nude woman, while protecting the sale to that 13-year-old of an interactive video game in which he actively, but virtually, binds and gags the woman, then tortures and kills her?” See VIDEO, page 2A

Court orders arrest of Gadhafi, son, key aide
By ADAM SCHRECK and MIKE CORDER The Associated Press TRIPOLI, Libya — Thousands of jubilant Libyans danced and cheered in the streets of the rebel stronghold of Benghazi after the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant Monday for Moammar Gadhafi, accusing him of crimes against humanity for killing civilians who rose up against his rule. The court order raised pressure on the Gadhafi regime, already targeted by daily airstrikes, and NATO clearly hopes it will encourage key allies to abandon him. But it also gives Gadhafi less incentive to accept a peaceful settlement that would see him leave power — something he has shown no indication of doing — because of the subsequent threat of arrest. The court in The Hague, Netherlands, lacks police powers, and the force most likely to arrest Gadhafi appears to be the rebels battling to oust him. At the United Nations, political affairs chief B. Lynn Pascoe said the rebels now hold a tenuous military advantage over Gadhafi’s forces. The rebels have failed to penetrate the Libyan leader’s center of power in Tripoli and conceded Monday they are unlikely to detain Gadhafi on their own. Warrants were also issued for Gadhafi’s son Seif alIslam Gadhafi, whom he has groomed as his successor, and for Libyan intelligence chief Abdullah al-Sanoussi. All three men were accused of orchestrating the killing, injuring, arrest and imprisonment of hundreds of civilians during the first 12 days of an uprising to topple Gadhafi from power, and for trying to cover up their alleged crimes. Presiding Judge Sanji Monageng of Botswana said Gadhafi had “absolute, ultimate and unquestioned control” over his country’s military and security forces. She said prosecutors presented evidence showing that following popular

Greece faces general strike, more cuts planned
By ELENA BECATOROS The Associated Press of Thessaloniki in the north. Everyone from doctors and ambulance drivers to casino workers and even actors at a state-funded theater were joining the two-day strike or holding work stoppages for several hours. Hundreds of flights were canceled or rescheduled as air traffic controllers walked off the job for four hours from 8 a.m. Another walkout is expected in the evening. There were further disruptions as public transport workers joined the strike, snarling traffic across the capital, while protesters blockaded the port of Piraeus. “The situation that the workers are undergoing is tragic and we are near poverty levels,” said Spyros Linardopoulos, a protester with the PAME union at the Piraeus blockade. “The government has declared war and to this war we will answer back with war.” Unions are angry at a new (euro) 28 billion ($40 billion)

uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt, Gadhafi and his inner circle plotted a “state policy ... aimed at deterring and quelling by any means — including by the use of lethal force — demonstrations by civilians against the regime.” Hundreds of civilians were killed, injured or arrested, and there were “reasonable grounds to believe” that Gadhafi and his son were both responsible for the murder and persecution of civilians, she said. Gadhafi’s regime rejected the court’s authority and dismissed the charges as politically motivated. “This court is nothing but a cover for the military operations of NATO,” said Justice Minister Mohammed al-Qamudi. “The ICC does not really mean anything for us Libyans because we are not party to it and because it’s merely a political tool for exerting pressure and political blackmail against sovereign countries. ... It has become clear that it’s a tool of imperialism.”

ATHENS, Greece — Workers across Greece walked off the job today at the start of a 48-hour general strike as lawmakers debate a new round of austerity reforms, which must be passed if the country is to get crucial bailout funds. More than 5,000 police were guarding Athens’ city center, as about 20,000 protesters marched to Parliament in two separate demonstrations. Another 7,000 marched in Greece’s second largest city

Another year has come and gone, slower it seems than the first. The love we need from you, now like an unquenchable thirst. Your echo we can hear it, whispering quieter with each day. Of happy times and simple times, your bright and sunny way. We pull upon our memories of stories a lifetime told, The old farm days, stories of war, genealogy of young and old. Pride in your wife, children and country never wavering from what was true, This we remember was the example that we were to carry too. What’s left for us we wonder? Surely you had a plan of how we would stick together without your guiding hand. Hold on tight to each other you’d say Never waiver in your love, Stand strong sister to brother Respect your mother’s love. And so we can decide to shed tears because we are alone or we can smile because you lived, and work to carry on. We think of you with love everyday.
Your loving wife Marty, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren

austerity program that would slap taxes on minimum wage earners and other struggling Greeks. The planned measures come on top of other spending cuts and tax hikes, which have contributed to the rise in the unemployment rate to over 16 percent. Debate on the measures began in Parliament Monday and is to continue later today. The package and an additional implementation law must be passed in parliamentary votes Wednesday and Thursday so the European Union and the International Monetary Fund release the next installment of Greece’s (euro) 110 billion ($156 billion) bailout loan. Without the (euro) 12 billion installment, Greece faces the prospect next month of becoming the first eurozone country to default on its debts — a potentially disastrous event that could drag down European banks and affect other financially troubled European countries. The measures have caused outrage even among lawmakers from the governing Socialists, and Prime Minister George Papandreou has struggled to contain an internal party revolt. Earlier this month, he reshuffled his cabinet in an attempt to get his party’s support for this week’s vote — the Socialists only have a 5 seat majority in the 300-member Parliament. Speaking at the start of the three-day debate Monday night, Papandreou called on lawmakers to fulfill a “patriotic duty” by voting in favor of the new measures. Two of his own deputies have suggested they will not vote for the bill.

Answers to Monday’s questions: The term “fast food” became part of the American vernacular in 1951 to describe restaurants that specialized in serving meals within a few minutes of ordering. The first prize appeared in a box of cereal in 1891. The prizes were inside specially marked boxes of Quaker Oats. Today’s questions: Why should you never take a pig to the beach? Who is the only person mentioned in the Bible to have worn gravesclothes? Answers in Wednesday’s Herald. Today’s words: Laystall: a garbage dump Vaccimulgence: cow milking

Breyer said. Video games, said Scalia’s majority opinion, fall into the same category as books, plays and movies as entertainment that “communicates ideas — and even social messages” deserving of First Amendment free-speech protection. And non-obscene speech “cannot be suppressed solely to protect the young from ideas or images that a legislative body thinks unsuitable for them,” he said. This decision follows the court’s recent movement on First Amendment cases, with the justices throwing out attempts to ban animal cruelty videos, protests at military funerals and political speech by businesses. The court will test those limits again next session when it takes up a new case involving government’s effort to protect children from what they might see and hear. More than 46 million American households have at least one video-game system, with the industry bringing in at least $18 billion in 2010. The industry has set up its own rating system to warn parents which video games are appropriate for which ages, with the rating “M” placed on games that are considered to be especially violent and only for mature adults. That system is voluntary, however. California’s 2005 law would have prohibited anyone under 18 from buying or renting games that give players the option of “killing, maiming, dismembering, or sexually assaulting an image of a human being.” Parents would have been able to buy the games for their children, but retailers who sold directly to minors would have faced fines of up to $1,000 for each game sold. That means that children would have needed an adult to get games like “Postal 2,” the first-person shooter by developer Running With Scissors that includes the ability to light unarmed bystanders on fire. It would also apply to the popular “Grand Theft Auto” games, from Rockstar Games, that allow gamers to portray carjacking, gun-toting gangsters. The California law never took effect. Lower courts have said that the law violated minors’ constitutional rights, and that California lacked enough evidence to prove that violent games cause physical and psychological harm to minors. Courts in six other states, including Michigan and Illinois, reached similar conclusions, striking down similar bans. Video game makers and sellers celebrated their victory, saying Monday’s decision puts them on the same legal footing as other forms of entertainment. “There now can be no argument whether video games are entitled to the same protection as books, movies, music and other expressive entertainment,” said Bo Andersen, president and CEO of the Entertainment Merchants Association.

WH: ‘Significant’ debt deal with GOP possible
By JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama plunged into deadlocked negotiations to cut government deficits and raise the nation’s debt limit Monday, and the White House expressed confidence a “significant” deal with Republicans could be reached. But both sides only seemed to harden their positions as the day wore on, the administration insisting on higher taxes as part of the package but Republican leaders flatly rejecting the idea. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden met with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., for about 30 minutes at the White House, and then met with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky for about an hour in the early evening. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama reported after the morning session that “everyone in the room believes that a significant deal remains possible.” But Carney also affirmed that Obama would only go for a deficit-reduction plan that included both spending cuts and increased tax revenue, an approach that Republicans say would never get through Congress. Said Carney: “It’s the only By LOLITA C. BALDOR Associated Press way to get it done if you want to do it right.” Obama and the vice president spent more time with McConnell than they did with Reid, an indication of the differences they still need to bridge. McConnell also was seen speaking with White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley moments before his meeting with Obama and Biden. “The meeting concluded but they will continue to talk,” McConnell spokesman Don Stewart said afterward. Hours earlier McConnell reaffirmed Republican opposition to more tax hikes in a speech from the Senate floor. “It’s time Washington take the hit,” he said, “not the taxpayers.” McConnell said any tax increase or new spending would be counterproductive to economic recovery, and he pointed out that Democrats had been unable to pass tax increases on the wealthy when they controlled both chambers of Congress last year. “Let’s move past tax hikes, talk about what’s actually possible, and let’s talk about what has and hasn’t worked over the past two years,” said the Kentucky Republican. Reid said, “I hope my Republican colleagues will put the economy ahead of politics.” Speaking on the Senate floor, he said, “I hope

The FDA granted the drug accelerated approval based on evidence that it slowed growth of breast cancer tumors for more than five months when combined with chemotherapy. But that delay shrunk to less than three months in follow-up studies, and patients did not live any longer. Along with that, many suffered side effects like hypertension and blood clots. Most cancer experts say the drug should remain available for patients who are already responding well. They say Avastin benefits a subset of patients, though it’s not yet clear how to identify them. The Swiss drugmaker will ask the FDA for more time to study if patients with certain genetic proteins respond better to the drug, a years-long process. The drug is approved for advanced breast cancer that has spread, or metastasized, to other parts of the body, which is considered incurable. Avastin’s supporters say those patients need every option available, despite the side effects.

General to head US Afghan force OKs drawdown
WASHINGTON — The man tapped to take over as the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan endorsed the size and pace of the more than 30,000-troop withdrawal laid out by President Barack Obama last week, despite other commanders’ worries that it’s too risky and aggressive. Marine Lt. Gen. John Allen said the drawdown will impress on Afghan leaders that they must urgently grow their own security forces to take over as U.S. troops leave. In a questionnaire prepared for the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing today on his nomination to take the command post, Allen warned, however, that success in Afghanistan is threatened by a significant lack of military trainers and mentoring teams for the Afghan Army and police. Allen’s hearing comes less than a week after Obama laid out his plan to withdraw 10,000 troops by the end of this year, and another 20,000plus by the end of next September. Gen. David Petraeus, the man Allen will replace if he is confirmed by the Senate, told Congress last week that he had recommended a more gradual withdrawal. Adm. Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Obama’s plan was more aggressive than he considered prudent. Allen voiced none of that criticism in the committee documents obtained by The Associated Press. “I believe this reality sends an important message of commitment to the Afghan people, as well as a sense of urgency that the Afghans must take on more responsibility for securing their own country,” Allen said in the questionnaire. He repeated military assertions that the insurgents’ momentum has been stopped in most of the country, and reversed in many key areas. And he predicted more tough fighting ahead. At the same time, he acknowledged a number of critical challenges the U.S. faces in Afghanistan, including the lack of trainers. He said there is currently a shortfall of nearly 500 trainers, and a need for more than 200 mentoring teams for both the Army and the police. As the Afghan security forces continue to expand, he said, the shortfalls will be more difficult to meet. And filling the gap, he said, is critical to the success of the overall operation. Significant challenges

they’ll join us to create jobs and set aside their desire to please the tea party and defeat President Obama.” At issue is not just the staggering national debt but a showdown on the federal borrowing limit that carries enormous risks. Absent an agreement that cuts long-term deficits, Republicans say they will not vote to increase the nation’s borrowing, which will exceed its $14.3 trillion limit on Aug. 2. The administration has warned that if Congress does not raise the debt ceiling, it could mean the first U.S. financial default in history and send economic shockwaves around the world. To meet government obligations, a two-year increase in the debt ceiling would have to be about $2.4 trillion. Republicans are insisting on deficit reduction of a similar amount over 10 years. So far the financial markets remain unrattled by the impasse, and some say it might take a massive market upheaval to move Congress to pass an increase in the debt ceiling. That’s what it took in 2008 for Congress to approve the financial bailout known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program. Politically, raising the debt ceiling is considered a more difficult vote than the bank bailout plan.

High court limits state rules on campaign spending
By MARK SHERMAN Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court imposed new limits Monday on states trying to restrain the influence of money in politics, striking down a law that tied the amount of public funds a candidate receives to how much privately funded rivals spend. The 5-4 ruling was the latest in a series of decisions by the court’s conservative majority upending campaign finance laws. But the court did not attack the validity of using public funds for campaign financing, giving a glimmer of hope to advocates of restrictions on spending in political campaigns. Instead, Chief Justice John Roberts’ majority opinion dwelled on the so-called trigger mechanism in an Arizona law that provided differing levels of money to publicly funded candidates based on spending by privately funded rivals and independent groups. The law was passed after a public corruption scandal and was intended to reward candidates who forgo raising their own campaign cash, even in the face of heavy spending by opponents with private money. Those who challenged the Arizona law said it caused them to rein in spending to prevent their political opponents from getting a fresh infusion of state money. The court said the trigger violates the First Amendment, but left in place the rest of Arizona’s public financing system. “Laws like Arizona’s matching funds provision that inhibit robust and wide-open political debate without sufficient justification cannot stand,” Roberts said. At least four other states, Maine, New Mexico, North Carolina and Wisconsin, have similar “trigger” provisions that affect some political races, and could be vulnerable. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky praised the decision. “The Supreme Court ruled that a state cannot use taxpayer funds to punish a successful political campaign,” McConnell said. William Maurer, an attorney with the Institute for Justice representing the challengers, said the court reaffirmed its opposition to campaign spending laws that seek to level the playing field. But Justice Elena Kagan said in dissent that the law was a reasonable response to political scandal. Reading a

remain in Afghanistan, Allen said, adding that the Taliban will try to recover lost ground in the south and southwest, and that insurgent groups like the Haqqani network will continue to wage high-profile attacks. He also echoed ongoing concerns about difficult relations with Pakistan, which have dramatically eroded since the U.S. SEAL team raid in early May that crossed deep into Pakistan, infiltrated a walled compound and killed Osama bin Laden. If confirmed, he said he would work to improve military relationship with Pakistan and try to expand cross-border operations, particularly along the rugged eastern region, where militants routinely cross into Afghanistan to attack coalition forces. In other comments, he said the military is still struggling to meet the needs of special operations forces in Afghanistan, particularly those training the Afghan police and working to stabilize villages. There aren’t enough helicopters or aircraft for the special operators, and as the number of teams doing the training and stability operations grows, those needs will escalate. The teams, he said, will also need more surveillance capabilities and equipment to clear roads.

Moderately confused

dissent aloud for the first time since joining the court last year, Kagan said that by providing candidates with additional money, the law actually provided for more, not less, political speech. Arizonans “passed a law designed to sever political candidates’ dependence on large contributors,” Kagan said. “It put into effect a public financing system that attracted large numbers of candidates at a sustainable cost to the state’s taxpayers.” Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor signed onto Kagan’s dissent. On the federal level, candidates willing to abide by various spending limits receive public campaign money financed by the $3 that individual Americans can opt to check off on their tax returns. This case follows other recent rulings striking down campaign finance laws. Among those were last year’s Citizens United decision that removed most limits on election spending by corporations and organized labor, and a 2008 decision that voided the federal “millionaire’s amendment” to increase contribution limits for congressional candidates facing wealthy opponents.

Pitching leads St. John’s ACME past Van Wert, 6-4
Times Bulletin Sports Editor sports@timesbulletin.com



By Brian Bassett

VAN WERT — The St. John’s ACME baseball team traveled to Van Wert on Monday to take on the Cougars. The Blue Jays got a complete game out of their starting pitcher Cody Kundert, en route to a 6-4 victory. St. John’s got on the board quickly as Tanner Calvelage started the game off with a triple to deep center and was plated on a sacrifice fly. That would be the only run the Blue Jays could get in the inning, however, as Van Wert starting

pitcher Andrew Todd forced consecutive fly outs to left field to end the frame. Van Wert went quietly in the bottom of the first as Kundert retired the side. Todd shut down the Blue Jays in the second and third innings, seeing only four batters each frame while stranding both runners who reached base. The Cougars struck in the bottom of the second inning as Aaron McClellan reached on a fielder’s choice and stole second, followed by a walk to Mason Krugh. Lucas Sullivan brought McClellan and Krugh home on a 2-run

triple to give the Cougars the lead, 2-1. Troy Warnecke led off the Blue Jay fourth with a single and scored on a Kundert RBI double. Kundert was then scored on a Ryan Buescher single. Van Wert relief pitcher Terrin Contreras then stopped the Blue Jay rally but not before St. John’s took the 3-2 lead. St. John’s added to its lead in the fifth as Calvelage led off with a bunt-single, stole second and third bases and scored on a Curtis Geise single. Kundert continued to keep the Cougars off balance, going three consecutive scoreless innings.

Wildcats batter Musketeers in ACME

FORT JENNINGS — The Jefferson ACME baseball unit, coming off an 11-0 loss at Lima Central Catholic Friday, blasted Fort Jennings 19-0 in five innings Monday at Fort Jennings Village Park to bring their record to 9-3 on the season. Sophomore Ross Thompson got the win for the Wildcats on the mound — Wildcat pitching only gave up four hits — and the Wildcats put up 17 hits for the game. The Jefferson first inning started off with hits from seniors Tony G e o r g e (3-for-5 on the day) and Mike Joseph (4-for-5 on the day) followed by a sacrifice fly to deep center field by Thompson that scored George. Joseph found home plate on a wild pitch and the Wildcats were up by two. Thompson took the mound for the Wildcats in the third inning. Delphos netted five runs in the fourth when bases were loaded and George hit a basesclearing double to deep center field. Joseph batted George in with a single to left field to make the score 7-0 in favor of the Wildcats. Jefferson put up 12 runs in the top of the fifth inning — sending 18 batters to the dish — and when the Musketeers went down scoreless in the home half, the run-rule went into effect to end the game. “We hit the ball well today; Tony and Mike both had a great game for us at the plate. With tournament play coming up, we need to keep hitting the ball and getting better in the field,” Jefferson coach

Rusty Thompson noted. “Our pitching looks pretty strong, I would just like to see some continued development on our defensive play. Against tough pitchers, we need to eliminate the errors so we don’t put so much pressure on our offense.” The final game of the regular season for Jefferson will be today at Stadium Park against cross-town rival St. John’s. Tournament play begins Friday and Saturday at Wildcat Field and Stadium Park.

----T-Birds get past Bulldogs

COLUMBUS GROVE — As the ACME baseball regular season is winding down, the Columbus Grove Bulldogs and the Lima Central Catholic Thunderbirds tuned up for their tournament run on Monday night before the “postseason” gets underway

By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald

on Friday. A pitcher’s duel ensued for 5-plus innings before the Thunderbirds struck for three in the sixth and what turned out to be two important runs in the seventh as the visitors held on for a 6-4 victory. Trey Roney held the Thunderbirds at bay for five innings, giving up just one run, until the guests got the first four batters on in the sixth, highlighted by a 2-run single by Conner Dee to give the T-Birds a 3-1 lead. T o m Judy added an RBI single, making it 4-1. N i c k Watkins turned in a gem for the guests, pitching 6 1/3 innings of 1-run baseball, but the Bulldogs chased the starter after a seventh-inning leadoff double by Matt Jay, followed by a walk by Gavin Windau, but the blow that chased the Thunderbird starter was a 2-run single by Trent Reed that brought the Bulldogs to within two. The Birds plated two important runs in the top of the seventh as Kian Duffy singled and scored and Billy Taflinger singled and scored on a wild pitch off of reliever Windau. Taflinger went 2-for-4 for the T-birds. Collin Stolly was 3-for-4 with an RBI, while Ben Stolly reached on all four plate appearances with two singles and two walks. Brandon Benroth provided a 2-for-4 performance for the Bulldogs. Jay had the only extra-base hit of the game with a double in the seventh. Zach Barrientes sacrificed home a run in the bottom of the seventh but Benroth hit a shot off of relief pitcher Tom Judy to shortshop Collin Stolly with a throw to first ending the valiant comeback attempt for Columbus Grove. The Bulldogs do battle in the ACME tournament on


St. Johns plated two more runs in the top of the sixth when Ben Wrasman and Ryan Densel recorded backto-back singles before a 2-run double by Calvelage, making the score 6-2, St. John’s. Van Wert scored a run in the sixth as Contreras ripped a 2-out double and was brought home by a McClellan RBI double. Heading to the seventh inning, St. John’s led 6-3. Joey Hurless came in to pitch for the Cougars in the seventh inning and, after the first two runners reached on errors, recorded three consecutive outs to send the game to the bottom of the seventh. Sullivan led things off with a walk in the bottom of the seventh but was gunned down

trying to steal second for the first out. Kundert then got a quick fly out to give the Blue Jays two outs in the frame. Back-to-back walks to Todd and Vincent Moreland brought the tying run to the plate in Brandt Henry for the Cougars, with two outs. Henry singled to load the bases and was followed by Tyler Lovett who was hit by a pitch to score Todd from third. The Cougars had the tying and winning runs in scoring position with two outs but Kundert closed the door with a strikeout to end the game. Kundert picked up the win for the Blue Jays, going all seven innings, allowing four earned runs while striking out six and walking five.

Todd was tagged with the loss for the Cougars, going three innings, allowing three earned runs while striking out one and walking one. Leading hitters for the Blue Jays were Calvelage, 3-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored, and Wrasman, 2-3 with a run scored. Leading hitters for the Cougars were Sullivan, 1-2 with a triple and two RBIs, and McClellan, 1-3 with a RBI and a run scored. St. John’s hosts Jefferson this evening.

Racers basketball adds 9 recruits for 2011-12 LIMA — The UNOH Racers men’s basketball program completed its 2011 recruiting class by adding a total of nine recruits. The Racers graduated four seniors following the 2010-11 season and recruited hard to fill the gaps left from the graduating class. The Racers lost four starters in Isaac Bowers (Spencerville), Brandon Miller (Ottoville), Kyle Gillette (Loudonville) and Wes Gelhaus (Union City). The Racers return seven letterwinners and one starter in Jake Bolyard (Orrville). Bolyard led the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference in scoring during his freshman season. The Racers’ nine recruits come from the heart of Ohio, North Carolina and Wisconsin. The Racers grabbed teammates at a couple locations as head coach Chris Adams announced his 2011-12 class. From Ohio, the Racers landed teammates Percy Dean and Alex Harris, to go along with Chris Cromity, Drew Moore, Jon Slagle and Derek Roop. Coming to UNOH from North Carolina are JUCO teammates Johnny Elliott and Aaron Toney. To finish off the class, Myles Merchand comes from Wisconsin. Adams stated, “Our coaching staff is extremely pleased with this recruiting class and we believe that it is the most talented class to date. These recruits have the ability to be the core and provide a solid foundation for Racer basketball as we move forward.” Dean, a 5-9 guard from Mifflin High School in Columbus, was named 1stTeam All-Ohio during his senior season when he averaged 24.1 ppg and 8.1 apg. Dean was also named the District 10 Player of the Year, 1st-Team All-District and scored 1,194 career points. “Percy is a great fit for us. He really has the ability to motor the basketball foul-line to foul-line. He’s an athletic


finisher at the basket, yet still has the ability to knock down the open jumper.” Dean’s teammate, Harris, a 6-7 forward, was named to the All-District team and also to the 2nd-Team All-City while averaging 12.0 ppg and 10.5 rpg. “Alex has the ability to be a very good front line player for us. He’s very active to the ball which makes him a good rebounder. He’s got the skills to be offensively effective facing the basket and the body to score with his back to the basket.” Cromity, a 6-4 guard from Solon High School in Solon, was named All-District during his senior season. Cromity was also named to the 1st-Team AllConference and named by the Greater Cleveland Basketball Coaches Association All-Star Team. “Chris adds tremendous value to our team because he has very good guard skills, especially with his dribbledrive and slashing ability, and he can defend the opponents’ small forward. He has length and has shown the ability to be a good passer.” Moore, a 5-9 guard from Tri-Village High School in New Madison, has been a 3-time All-Conference player, including Player of the Year during his junior season. Moore was AllDistrict for two seasons and was named Player of the Year his senior season. Moore left Tri-Village as the all-time leading scorer with 1,454 career points. “Drew makes up for his lack of size by possessing a knack for scoring the basketball and playing the game with a high basketball I.Q. He is fun to watch and a joy to coach.” Slagle, a 6-2 guard from Sidney Lehman Catholic High School in Sidney, has led his team to the district finals three years in a row. Slagle was named Sidney Lehman’s Best Defensive Player and has also earned accolades in football as he was named All-Conference two times for both offense and defense and helped lead his team, while being quarterback, to the final four in Division VI his senior season. “Jon has put on 8-10 pounds since the day we signed him. His exceptional body strength (for his age) will really help us at the small forward position. Jon is an exceptional person along with being a good athlete.” Roop, a 6-3 guard from Memorial High School in St. Marys, was a 2-time AllWestern Buckeye League selection during his junior and senior seasons. Roop was also a 2-time All-District player and named to the All-Northwest Ohio team. “Derek is another real solid multi-sport athlete. He had a very good high school career as both a quality scorer in basketball and a crafty pitcher in baseball. Derek is our firstever athlete to attempt to play both baseball and basketball for the Racers.”

Elliott, a 6-0 guard from Sandhills Community College in Pinehurst, N.C., will enter the Racers program as a sophomore as he used only one season of eligibility at the JC level. Elliott was named to the All-Conference team during his junior and senior seasons in high school. “Johnny is a lightningquick point guard who can play exceptional on the ball defense (especially in the forecourt). He is a very mature young man and we will rely on his leadership abilities to help run our ball club.” His teammate, Toney, a 6-7 forward, will enter the Racers program as a junior as he used two seasons of eligibility. In his career, Toney helped his team to the NCHSAA Eastern Regionals and was an 2ndTeam All-Conference member while leading his team to a 28-3 record. “Aaron is a very hardworking post player who can muscle in and around the boards. He sees the floor well offensively when handling the ball with his back to the basket and this will help us as we work inside-out to our spot up shooters.” Merchand, a 6-0 guard from Madison Area Technical College in Madison, WI, comes to UNOH as a sophomore as he played in one season at the JC level. In his prep career, Merchand was named All-Conference, AllCounty and led his team to the state semifinals in Indiana. Merchand averaged 19.0 ppg and 6.0 rpg. “Myles is a tough, athletic left-handed slasher who is the type of player that can defend the opposing teams’ best offensive threat and offensively get himself to the foul-line frequently.” Adams’ recruiting class is the largest since the inaugural season of 2007. The Racers 2011-12 season will get underway on Nov. 1 when they travel to Mt. Vernon Nazarene University. ----Crosier named pre-season Second Team All-American BLUFFTON — Bluffton University senior nose tackle Justin Crosier (Columbus/ Hamilton Township) was recently named pre-season Second Team All-American by the Consensus Draft Services for the 2011 season.

He said I could have it as long as I waited one Is your ad month after I finished chemotherapy. I was undergoing radiation at the time when here? I had the vaccine and seem to have no issues as a result. Have I done myself harm or is the vaccine as effective? Also, if the vaccine Call today! only lasts six years, should I have another when I am 66 or avoid it owing to my cancer history? 419-695-0015 DEAR READERS: Thank you all for writing.

Writer wants break-up advice

4B - The Herald

Tuesday, June 28, 2011


Tomorrow’s Horoscope
In the year ahead a second channel of earnings might develop that can be turned into much more than you ever thought possible. It’s from a source where you have natural talent but never tapped as a means of profit. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It behooves you to keep a low profile in all involvements, especially with career-related matters. You’ll attract far more attention when you don’t call it to yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Associating with persons who have a purpose in life, not those who are merely drifting, will make you feel more secure about your affairs in general. Hang out with those who are doing things and going places. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Use your mental prowess to meet and overcome any obstacles you encounter. Considerable personal satisfaction can be derived from untangling knotty situations. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- It normally isn’t too smart to offer unsolicited advice to others. Yet if you can clearly see the answer to a problem that another is encountering, speak up and offer what you can. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Don’t let another hurry you into making purchase beyond your chosen pace of consideration. Be cautious, firm and patient in all of your commercial dealings, regardless of the urgency. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you have to make a decision regarding something where your options appear to be of equal value, keep in mind a similar method that you found success with previously. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Better communications can be established during this cycle if you work on it a bit. Try to resolve any misunderstandings you’ve had with frequent associates. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- A recreational break could provide a healthy valve for preventing tension buildup in your body and mind. Allocate as much time as you can for doing nothing but engaging in fun activities. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Several matters you’ve been trying to resolve can be concluded to your satisfaction if you simply deal with them one at a time. Work on each one separately. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There isn’t likely to be too much that will escape your attention. You’re curious, alert and receptive to life itself, and eager to both acquire and impart knowledge about most everything. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Just in case you have to improvise while under fire, it will be important to keep your wits about you at all times concerning anything financial. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It’s the quality of effort that determines the value of rewards one can receive. Make sure your methods are industrious and productive, and you’ll exceed even your own expectations.
