Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869

Franklin sets registration


Streets Optimists ‘Firefighter of the Year’
at nursing homes and is a past secretary of the Delphos Firemen’s Association. His recent acts of heroism include saving an errant Rat Terrier from a pine tree and rescuing a small kitten from a storm drain. “We all know we’re here to fight fires but people still call us for animal rescue,” Streets said. “It’s hard to say no when someone calls and is upset their animal is in trouble. So, I go and see what I can do.” The kitten was a piece of cake — the Rat Terrier, another story. “This lady called and said her dog was stuck in a tree,” Streets began. “That’s not the usual call. When I got there, this little guy was in a pine tree. I got the ladder and climbed the tree and just when I got within about five feet of him, he climbed down. There I was in the pine tree with scratches and sap all over me but it ended well, so it was all in a day’s work.” Nominations for Optimist “Firefighter of the Year” are open to any member of a department chartered by the Delphos Firemen’s Association. Criteria for the award include: quality of firefighter or association member, involvement in the community, attitude at firehouse, contribution to the fire district and association, extraordinary rescue following operational policies and training, development of wellness program that improves the health of the members of the department and outstanding effort to improve the department’s standing in the community.

Hohlbein works where she plays
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — During the summer months, young people spend their time shuttling back and forth between summer jobs and summer fun. Amy Hohlbein, 20, of Ottoville, spends her summers at Huggy Bear Campground where she both works and plays. “I work here in the main office and I basically do everything that needs to be done,” she said. “I cook and stock the shelves, do clean-up and of course, check campers in. I like working here. I started about nine years ago and I do camp here, too, during the summers.” Working at a place that uses the slogan “where the fun never ends,” cons would be in short supply. “I can’t really think of anything I don’t like about it. I guess the least fun thing to do is the clean up. But even that’s not that bad,” Hohlbein said. “There are four other employees who work the main office. I come in around 1 o’clock in the afternoon and usually stay

Employees must have worked for all of the past two years to receive the entire four days’ wages and four days of sick leave. Others will receive reduced amounts. The provision for freezing personal day accrual for two years and receiving the cash and sick-day reimbursement was agreed to by all unions, and also applies to state workers not represented by unions. It does not apply to employees of the Legislature, Ohio Supreme Court and Auditor’s Office. Payouts will cost the state between $40 million and $45 million, a sum already accounted for in the current state budget. The Department of Administrative Services says swapping sick for personal days is beneficial for the state, because sick time — unlike personal time — is only partially reimbursed when unused.

I’ll usually get done around 10 p.m.” Since the main office is the entry point for Huggy Bear as well as a sort of grocery store and restaurant, Hohlbein’s job is a very social one. “The best part is meeting all of the people who camp here,” she said. “I really enjoy interacting with them and waiting on the customers.” Hohlbein attends Rhodes State College in Lima, majoring in radiology.

Other offerings include the Hamburger Tent, bingo, the Country Store and Farmer’s Market with fresh homemade baked goods and produce, homemade ice cream, kiddie tractor pull and corn hole tournament. The Big Raffle tickets and the handmade quilt tickets will be available throughout the day. The denim quilt is on display at the Fort Jennings State Bank.

O Asia stocks mixed after Robert P. ErnstBITUARIES Wall Street lurches higher
By PAMELA SAMPSON AP Business Writer BANGKOK — Asian stock markets struggled to find their footing today, giving back morning gains despite a dramatically higher finish on Wall Street prompted by a slight drop in U.S. unemployment claims. Global markets have fluctuated wildly this week as signs the U.S. might be headed toward recession rattled investors already unnerved by Europe’s worsening debt crisis. Oil prices fell below $85 a barrel as investors tried to make sense of a week of wild gyrations in the equity and commodities markets. The dollar weakened against the yen and rose against the euro. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng rose 1.1 percent to 19,812.02. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 gained 1.1 percent to 4,186.40, while benchmarks in New Zealand, the Philippines and mainland China also rose. But Japan’s Nikkei 225 stock average was lower by midday — down 0.3 percent to 8,954.87, after spending the morning in positive territory. A stronger yen, which reduces the value of profits earned overseas, pummeled export shares. Video game giant Nintendo Co. sank 5 percent. Toyota Motor Corp. lost 1.7 percent, and consumer electronics maker Panasonic Corp. sank 1.1 percent. Also reversing course at midday was South Korea’s Kospi, down by 0.2 percent By JOE McDONALD AP Business Writer to 1,814.60. Benchmarks in Taiwan and Malaysia were also down. “It’s a very volatile market and everyone is reacting to every bit of news. The guy who is trying to pick the bottom is still very much at risk here,” said Tom Kaan of Louis Capital Markets in Hong Kong. “Into the next one, two or three months, we are not going to see much of a rally,” Kaan said. “People will want to take what’s on the table and sit on the sidelines.” On Thursday, the Dow Jones industrial average shot higher following news that the U.S. job market might have gotten a little better. The Labor Department reported that the number of people applying for unemployment benefits fell below 400,000 last week for the first time since April. That was enough to catapult Wall Street to one of its biggest points gains of all time. The Dow finished at 11,143.31, up 423.37 points, or about 4 percent. It had already fallen 634 points Monday, risen 429 Tuesday and fallen 519 Wednesday. Never before has the Dow had four 400-point swings in a row. The S&P 500 finished up 4.6 percent and the Nasdaq composite index climbed 4.7 percent. “Buyers moved into the market to snap up beatendown blue chips and a stronger-than-expected unemployment claims figure eased some concern about the slowing economy,” said Ben Potter, Robert P.

Enthusiasm for high-speed rail stalls
BEIJING — China’s infatuation with high-speed rail soured at bullet train velocity. Six months ago, the rail network was a success symbol and the basis of a planned high-tech export industry. But after a July crash that killed 40 people, Beijing has suspended new construction and is recalling problem-plagued trains, raising questions about the future of such prestige projects. It was an extraordinary reversal for a project that once enjoyed political status on a level with China’s manned space program. High-speed rail has been, along with nuclear power, among an array of areas where critics warn that breakneck, government-driven development might be jeopardizing public safety and adding to financial risks. In nuclear power, Beijing said earlier this year that it would press ahead with its rapid expansion of China’s industry despite Japan’s Fukushima disaster.

Ohio Extreme Soccer Club to create art for Safe Harbor


Ohio State fan sculpts Woody


Area youth will show their support of disadvantaged children in the community through art this weekend. On Saturday, hundreds of local children and their families will converge on Westside Swim and Racquet Club for the Ohio Extreme Soccer Club’s “Festival Day” from 5-10 p.m. Among the many activities scheduled for that evening is a community art mural. Under the direction of local artist Ed Kuhn, festival-goers will have the chance to paint canvas panels designed by Kuhn to be assembled and donated to Safe Harbor, the area’s only runaway youth shelter. Coordinator Jason Diley expects 300-500 people to turn out for the event. “The Ohio Extreme Soccer Club wants to bring all of our families together and show children that making connections are important and that ‘community’ goes well beyond their sports team,” Diley said. In addition to the creation of a community art mural, there will be swimming, a dunk tank, food and a soccertennis tournament that evening. Safe Harbor, located at 429 S. Jameson Avenue in Lima is West Central Ohio’s only runaway and homeless youth shelter. Designed for children ages 12-18, the shelter provides lodging, food and clothing free of charge for up to 21 days. It is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is free to all youth who enter. Safe Harbor is run by SAFY (Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth) a leading foster care and adoption agency headquartered in Delphos.

FOSTORIA (AP) — Andy Sacksteder is an Ohio State fan through and through. He graduated from OSU with a degree in landscape horticulture in 1978 and now owns Linden Landscaping Company in Fostoria. Originally from That State Up North, Sacksteder comes from a family of Michigan fans, but his alma mater turned him into a Buckeye for life. “There’s so much energy around the game of football down there,” Sacksteder said. “I’ve never seen it before. It’s like going to a rock concert or something.” With two sons now attending Ohio State, Sacksteder keeps an eye on the Buckeyes during football season when he’s not busy with work. For the past four years during the winter months, however, when landscaping and football come to the end of their seasons, Sacksteder took up a new passion: sculpting. He started small, making first a hand, then a small mermaid, then progressing to a couple busts. Last year, he was ready to graduate to his first life-size bronze statue. Without being commissioned, the decision of what to sculpt was a big one. Not only is the production of such a work a long, laborious

process, it’s expensive. Once finished, the bronze icon will last for hundreds, even thousands, of years without decay. So after a decent amount of thought, and a healthy dose of disapproval from wellmeaning family and friends, Sacksteder’s choice seemed easy. Naturally, he would sculpt the legendary Buckeyes football coach Woody Hayes. “I’ve just always been an Ohio State fan, for as long as I can remember,” Sacksteder said. “And a lot of people don’t understand it, but (Hayes) just had a huge passion. And maybe he was over the top, but that’s what passion is I think.” Wayne Woodrow “Woody” Hayes coached the Buckeyes from 1951-1978. He was well known for his interaction with students, his love of Ohio State, and his extreme passion for football. Passion, Sacksteder says, is something he and Hayes share. “I think (Hayes) would appreciate the passion it took to (make the statue),” Sacksteder said. “Artists are very passionate people. This kitchen is just a mess when it’s my studio. There’s clay all over and handprints everywhere.” Although Sacksteder only has been sculpting for “four winters,” he said it was always something that interested him. After his sister took an artis-

tic welding class at Owen’s Community College, she encouraged him to seek out the instructor, James Havens. Havens has a studio in Gibsonburg and was the former president of the Toledo Area Sculptors Guild. With some encouragement from his wife, Chris, the pair ventured out to speak with Havens. “Jim wasn’t there, but he pulled in right when we were leaving,” Chris Sacksteder said. “He’s very enthusiastic and spent at least an hour and a half with us talking about sculpting, molding, and bronzing. He famously gave Andy a block of clay.” That block of clay encouraged Andy to sculpt a hand and served as the beginning of his development as a sculptor. The next time he returned to Havens’ studio, he brought samples of his work with him. “He was wondering who in the Toledo area might be a good mentor for him,” Havens said. “The truth of the matter was his work was at a level that nobody in Toledo could help him. (Andy) doubted it, but his stuff was absolutely first rate.” Sculpting Hayes took two winters before it was ready to be cast in bronze. Sacksteder does all his work by eye, without using any precise measurements, and said the experience with Hayes was incredibly difficult.

The Marion Township Trustees held their regular schedule meeting on Monday at the Marion Township office with the following members present: Howard Violet, Jerry Gilden and Joseph Youngpeter. The purpose of the meeting was to pay bills and conduct ongoing business. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved as read. The trustees then reviewed the bills and gave approval for 26 checks totaling $51,642.37. The bids were open for the two trucks that were for sale at which time auctioneer Aaron Siefker auctioned both trucks which the trustees sold to the highest bidders. Allen County Engineer Tim Piper and Rick Keller were present to see if everything was going okay between the township and the county. Road Foreman Elwer reported that after doing further checking and a water flow test on the tile along Bockey Road that the tile is adequate for road drainage. The damage done to Becker Road by farm equipment has been repaired and a bill will be sent to the individual for the repair. The tile along Evans Road was checked and appears to be partially plugged and will be put on the list to be taken care of. Mowing throughout the township has been completed for the second time. Fiscal Officer Kimmet presented to the trustees the Fund Status Report and the Bank Reconciliation Report for July 31 for their review and signature. He also reported that he received the return request form showing that the Bank of America received the notice sent to them regarding the property at 13910 Landeck Road. The trustees will meet at the property to advise Elwer what he should do in regards the nuisance. Police Chief Vermillion stated that the Marcs Radios will be reprogrammed this week. Trustees Gilden meet with Tom Mazur regarding the zoning map and changes that might need to be done. He will get the map back from Mazur to see if anything was missed. The regular scheduled meeting for Aug. 22 is rescheduled to Aug. 29. There being no further business, Trustee Gilden made a motion to adjourn which was seconded by Trustee Youngpeter and passed unanimously.

“Computers are like Old Testament gods; lots of rules and no mercy.”
— Joseph Campbell, American writer (1904-1987)

Republicans hit hard at each other in debate
By THOMAS BEAUMONT and PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press AMES, Iowa — Minnesota rivals Tim Pawlenty and Michele Bachmann sparred bitterly Thursday night during an eight-candidate Republican debate, trying to break out of the GOP presidential pack ahead of an Iowa test vote with huge consequences. Each seeks to become the main challenger to Republican front-runner Mitt Romney. Their efforts were newly complicated by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who stole some of the spotlight from afar by making it known hours before the debate that he was running for the GOP nomination. Romney, a multimillionaire businessman who casts himself as a jobs creator, made his own stir earlier in the day when, at the Iowa State Fair, he declared that “corporations are people,” drawing ridicule from Democrats. Those were just the latest twists in the most consequential week yet in the 2012 Republican presidential nomination fight. In the two-hour debate, the squabbling by Pawlenty and Bachmann allowed Romney, the GOP front-runner making his second presidential bid, to remain above the fray and emerge relatively unscathed by his rivals. By THOMAS BEAUMONT Associated Press Though every debate participant assailed President Barack Obama, it was clear from the confrontations between Pawlenty, a former Minnesota governor, and Bachmann, now a member of Congress, who had the most on the line ahead of Saturday’s straw poll that could well winnow the field. On stage just a few minutes, Pawlenty, who is struggling to gain traction despite spending years laying the groundwork for his campaign, accused Bachmann of achieving nothing significant in Congress, lacking executive experience and having a history of fabrications. “She’s got a record of misstating and making false statements,” Pawlenty said. Bachmann, who has risen in polls since entering the race this summer and has eclipsed Pawlenty, quickly responded with a list of what she called Pawlenty’s liberal policies when he was Minnesota’s governor, including his support for legislation to curb industrial emissions. “You said the era of small government is over,” she told Pawlenty. “That sounds a lot like Barack Obama if you ask me.” Much of the rest of the debate was heavily focused on the Democratic incumbent, with Romney and his seven rivals each seeking to prove he or she was the strongest Republican to take on Obama.

One Year Ago The Do-Right Motorcycle Club will hold its annual party and swap meet Friday and Saturday at the old Mendon Raceway at 8619 Deep Cut Road in Mendon. The event includes an auction, bike games, bike show, food vendors, beer tent and primitive camping. 25 Years Ago – 1986 Four Tri-County students will receive degrees Aug. 16 in commencement exercises at Bowling Green State University. Receiving degrees will be Janet Elaine Lawrence, Delphos, bachelor of science in journalism; Linda L. Sakemiller, Columbus Grove, master of education; David Joseph Mesker, Fort Jennings, bachelor of arts in communications; and Sheila Rose Selhorst, Kalida, master of science. Munch’s Mashers came from behind with four runs in the top of the sixth inning to win the 2-3-4 League championship game 13-12 over the Dynamite Demolishers. Team members included Chanda Hoehn, Angie Reynolds, Ashley Reynolds, Lisa Etzkorn, Kecia Feathers, Lisa Wrasman, Denise Buettner, Stephanie Brickner, Amy Hasenkamp, Amie Schwinnen, Jamie Horstman, Eric Lloyd, Stacy Elwer, Bridget Kapcar, Denise Weinandy and Erin Gorman. Delphos Senior Citizens Inc. met recently on Suthoff Street for a fun, food, and fellowship get-together. An educational program on antiques was given by Mrs. Vaughn Morgan of Venedocia. Morgan told of the vanishing heritage, such as covered bridges, locks and old farm barns. 50 Years Ago – 1961 All is in readiness for the Allen County Fair, slated to open Aug. 19, according to spokesmen for the county fair board. The Delphos Eagles Band is scheduled to provide music on Aug. 20 and the Delphos Jefferson High School Band is slated to play Aug. 21. Highlighting the program on Aug. 20 will be a church service in front of the grandstand with the Delphos Ministerial Association in charge. Danny Rode of the Little League Cardinals set a local Little League record Thursday night as he faced the minimum number of batters – eighteen – in the Cards 22-0 victory over the Braves. Three men got to base against Rode, but all were erased in double plays. He struck out four and walked none. The midget football program will get under way here on Monday, according to spokesmen for the program. Coaches this year include Dave MacWhinney, Keith Kiggins, Dick Craig, Rollie Dunlap and Rollie Hittle, and the team will play in an authorized league as has been the case in past seasons. 75 Years Ago – 1936 The Mox Garage softball team went to Spencerville Tuesday night for a game with the fast Spencerville Merchants. The Delphos team was defeated by a score of 8 to 5. The game was called after the fifth inning because of darkness. The lineup for the Mox team was Sterling, p; McCarthy, c; Judkins, lb; Winters, 2b; Thithoff, lss; Brown, 3b; Ditto, lf; Burger, cf; Seymour, rf; and Brandehoff, rss. An opportunity is to be afforded Delphos people to receive musical training for band and orchestra instruments. Robert Whiting has been named as instructor of an emergency school for this work under the WPA. He stated that all persons desiring to receive instruction in the band and orchestra instruments are invited to attend. Many Delphos people are planning to attend the Elida Pioneer Picnic at the Crites Grove, one mile west of Elida, on Thursday. The annual meeting of the Pioneer Society always attracts thousands of people. The principal speakers of the day will be Judge William Klinger, president of the society, and Dusty Miller, Wilmington, noted humorist.

Warren makes first steps on potential bid

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON (AP) — Consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren is taking the first steps toward launching a possible challenge against Republican Scott Brown, the U.S. senator from Massachusetts and a top Democratic target in 2012. The 62-year-old Harvard law professor began contacting top Massachusetts Democrats on Thursday, including party Chairman John Walsh, about a potential candidacy. Warren plans to make a decision after Labor Day and will spend the next few weeks talking with voters and party activists, a Democrat close to the national leadership told The Associated Press. The person was not authorized to speak publicly, and requested anonymity. “I left Washington, but I don’t plan to stop fighting for middle class families,” Warren wrote in a posting Thursday on Blue Mass Group, a popular blog among Massachusetts Democrats. “I spent years working against special interests and have the battle scars to show it — and I have no intention of stopping now.” A favorite of consumer groups and liberals, Warren was tapped by President Barack Obama last year to set up the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Congressional Republicans opposed her becoming the bureau’s director, and Obama in July decided not to pick her to head the new agency, sparking speculation that she might challenge Brown. Top national Democrats desperate to find a strong challenger to take back the Massachusetts seat long held by the late Sen. Edward Kennedy have been urging Warren to run for months. A poll in March showed Brown as the most popular politician in the state. Warren, who lives in Cambridge, has never held elective office. She left the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau this summer, and recently returned from a vacation with her family to consider running. Warren did not immediately respond Thursday to a request for comment. In a move that appeared to underscore her seriousness about the race, two prominent Massachusetts political strategists — Doug Rubin and Kyle Sullivan — are assisting her as she decides. Rubin is the former top political strategist for Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. Democrats say her image as a crusader on behalf of consumers against well-heeled Wall Street and corporate interests would be a boon to her candidacy. Party leaders also believe her national profile would help her raise the money needed to topple Brown, who has more than $10 million in his campaign account. Faced with a crowded field, Democrats worry that a long, costly and divisive primary could dash their hopes of reclaiming the seat after their embarrassing loss to Brown in 2010. There are several Democrats already running, including Setti Warren, the first-term mayor of the affluent Boston suburb of Newton and the state’s first popularly elected black mayor; City Year youth program co-founder Alan Khazei; and Robert Massie, a former lieutenant governor candidate.

Analysis: Perry may pose biggest threat to Romney
AMES, Iowa — The biggest rumblings in the Republican presidential campaign are coming from Austin, Texas — 1,000 miles from the leadoff caucus state where front-runner Mitt Romney and seven opponents squared off ahead of an important test vote this weekend. Texas Gov. Rick Perry sent word that he would join the race, casting a shadow over the debate Thursday night and threatening to upend the race. Back in Iowa, Romney emerged unscathed with his leader-of-the-pack status intact after two feisty hours; his two Minnesota rivals — Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Gov. Tim Pawlenty — sparred repeatedly as each sought advantage ahead of Saturday’s Iowa straw poll. Overall, the dynamics of the campaign did not change with a single debate. And they may not change when Saturday’s straw poll results are announced. But the race could well change in the coming days as Perry dives in. The Texan may pose the biggest threat yet to
By ALAN FRAM Associated Press

“I’m not going to eat Barack Obama’s dog food,” Romney said when asked whether he would have vetoed the compromise legislation that Congress gave to the president that raised the debt ceiling. “What he served up is not what I would have done if I’d had been president of the United States.” Notably absent from the eight-candidate spectacle were Perry, who was in Texas preparing for a weekend announcement tour to early primary states, and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who isn’t a candidate but was stoking presidential speculation anew with a visit to the Iowa State Fair. The nation’s teetering economic situation shadowed the debate, with stock market volatility and a downgrade in the U.S. credit rating giving Republicans ample opportunities to criticize Obama. The Democratic president will get his shot to counter the criticism next week during a Midwestern bus tour that will take him through this state that helped launch him on the path to the White House four years ago. On Thursday, he, too, tried to align himself with a public fed up with economic uncertainty and Washington gridlock. “There is nothing wrong with our country. There is something wrong with our politics,” he declared in Michigan, where he was touring an advanced-battery factory

Pelosi names final members to debt supercommittee
WASHINGTON — The fragile economy and wildly gyrating financial markets could put enormous pressure on Congress’ new debt-reduction supercommittee. Yet even as leaders finished naming the bipartisan panel’s members, it remained uncertain that it will ultimately agree on a savings plan. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced the panel’s final three members on Thursday, and like the previous nine all are congressional veterans. They are Reps. James E. Clyburn of South Carolina and Xavier Becerra of California, members of their party’s House leadership, and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, top Democrat on the Budget Committee. Last week’s agreement between President Barack Obama and Congress creating the panel gives it until Nov. 23 to propose $1.5 trillion in savings over the coming decade. If the committee fails to agree on a plan — or if Congress doesn’t approve one by Dec. 23 — automatic spending cuts would be triggered affecting hundreds of federal programs. As if that weren’t enough pressure, recent days have seen world financial markets endure breath-taking ups and downs, plus the downgrade of the nation’s credit rating by Standard and Poor’s and continued fears of economic weakness in the U.S. and Europe. In a conference call with reporters, Clyburn said he believes the panel can produce more than $1.5 trillion in savings, as long as Republicans drop their objections to raising revenues. “I think the moment we can get some of our Republican friends to stop interpreting closing loopholes as raising taxes, we’ll get home free on this,” Clyburn said. Underscoring the political tensions involved, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said it is time for Obama “to outline his own recommendations to rein in the massive deficits and debt that are undermining job creation in our country.” With next year’s presidential and congressional elections looming ever closer, there have been no indica-

Romney. Conservatives who make up the core of the GOP primary base view Romney skeptically on cultural issues, and he hasn’t been able to establish himself as the heavy favorite for the nomination even though he’s spent months promoting his background as a businessman and claiming that he alone has the know-how to create jobs to pull the country out of a period of high unemployment, rampant foreclosures and tumultuous financial markets. Democrats are already taking aim at Perry. “His record will get scrutinized,” David Axelrod, senior political adviser to President Barack Obama, said today. Axelrod suggested Perry was taking too much credit for Texas’ relatively healthy economy and job creation. “He’s been the beneficiary down there of the boom in oil prices and increased military spending because of the wars,” Axelrod said on CBS’ “Early Show.” “I don’t think many people would attribute it to the leadership of the governor down there.” Perry could benefit from GOP suspicion about Romney. The Republican establishment has a lackluster view of

Romney’s candidacy, leading deep-pocketed donors across the country to look for more candidates to draft into the race who could bridge the historical tension between the party’s social and economic wings. They couldn’t convince former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie repeatedly refused, too. And Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels declined overtures as well. Enter Perry. He is credible on issues social conservatives care about and sent a strong message to evangelicals last weekend by hosting a national prayer rally in Houston that drew roughly 30,000 Christians. He also has overseen a period of job growth in his state, making Texas one of the few states in the country that have posted economic gains and giving him the opportunity to challenge Romney’s pitch as the jobs candidate. Iowa, with its strong base of evangelical voters, may be tailor-made for Perry. He was making his first trip to the state Sunday, a day after formally announcing his candidacy in South Carolina and New Hampshire — just as Iowa straw poll votes are being cast.

tions that the two parties will back down on their bedrock demands: Democrats unwilling to accept cuts in Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid benefits, and Republicans refusing to allow tax increases. That deadlock has shoved huge potential savings off the table for bargainers. That same stalemate prevented Obama and Congress from going beyond the roughly $2 trillion in debt reduction that last week’s deal yielded, an amount budget analysts consider half or less of what is needed to begin taming the red ink. All 12 members of the supercommittee — evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans — are longtime Washington politicians who seem likely to hew to party priorities. “When you’re dealing with really tough issues in which the public will have to give up something, the main impetus for acting is when the pain of not acting is greater than the pain of acting,” said Eugene Steuerle, a former Treasury Department official who now studies budget issues for the nonpartisan Urban Institute.

VAN WERT — Kyle Karhoff took medalist honors with a 74 to pace the Ottoville golf team to a 333 team score and the championship of the 9-team Lincolnview Lancer Invitational Thursday at Hickory Sticks Golf Course in Van Wert. The Big Green finished ahead of St. Henry’s 347. Columbus Grove, with Taylor Giesige shooting an 83, took third with a 365. Fort Jennings, topped by Kurt Warnecke’s medalist runner-up 78, finished fourth at 368, followed by Antwerp at 377, Leipsic and Miller City at 378, Crestview at 398 (topped by Jared Hallfeldt’s 89) and the host Lancers at 412 (led by Logan Miller’s 94).

After all the turmoil, questions loom for Buckeyes
By RUSTY MILLER The Associated Press COLUMBUS — The 2010 season was vacated. The head coach’s job was vacated. Now a bunch of 20-somethings coming off summer vacation are left with the previously unfathomable task of picking up the pieces at tattered Ohio State. “We still hold ourselves to a high standard,” says Joe Bauserman, an unknown backup quarterback who now may hold the Buckeyes’ season in his hands. “We expect to win and that’s what we’re going to do.” But expecting to win and actually doing it are two dramatically different things heading into the most troublesome of Ohio State’s 122 seasons of bedrock football. The program has never faced anything like this. A scandal centered on a tattoo-parlor owner giving cash and discounts for memorabilia to several players grew geometrically. After players were suspended for the start of the 2011 season, it was discovered coach Jim Tressel had known about their complicity for more than nine months and had kept the information to himself — contrary to NCAA rules and his own contract. After a torrent of daily revelations, rumor and innuendo, Tressel’s startlingly successful decade in Columbus came to a disgraceful end when he was forced out on May 30. Shortly thereafter, Tressel’s pet player, three-year starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor, announced he was giving up his senior season to make an end run at an NFL career. Seeking to mollify the NCAA, Ohio State has vacated its 12-1 season a year ago (including wins over rival Michigan and in the Sugar Bowl against Arkansas), and has tagged itself with two years of NCAA probation. It won’t find out until September at the earliest if the NCAA accepts those sanctions or wants to pile on more. Now Luke Fickell, a linebackers coach the previous nine years at his alma mater, is the interim head coach. He calls the last few months “a whirlwind, exciting, crazy, emotional.” Now that all the accusations and allegations have given way to actually taking the field and practicing, the next few weeks figure to be all of that and more. Even without the controversy, the NCAA investigation, the suspensions and the departures, this would be a tumultuous preseason. The Buckeyes must replace seven starters on defense and four on offense, not to mention being without four prime contributors (leading rusher Dan Herron, top receiver DeVier Posey, starting offensive lineman Mike Adams and backup defensive lineman Solomon Thomas) who were suspended for the first five games of the fast approaching season. First on the to-do list is quarterback, where Pryor had taken almost every snap for the past two years. There are four candidates to replace him, each with his own distinct qualities and shortcomings. Bauserman, a former minor-league baseball player who is an avid hunter, has his sights set on the job. He’s the most experienced. Kenny Guiton, a redshirt sophomore, is more mobile and just as good a passer. Secondyear freshman Taylor Graham is tall and has a strong arm, just like his father Kent, a former Ohio State quarterback. Neither he nor Guiton have ever really faced opposing fire. Braxton Miller, the prize of the newest recruiting class, is raw and talented. He looks lost at times during drills but shows great potential. Guiton might be the safest bet because he is the most versatile candidate. “I feel like I’ve done some great things out there; I feel like I’ve done some things I need to work on,” he said, echoing words that could be used to describe all four of the quarterbacks. “I’ll get better.” Another critical area is wide receiver, where the Buckeyes lost MVP Dane Sanzenbacher. Until Posey gets back on the field, those green quarterbacks will have to rely on replacements who have a combined 12 catches in their college

careers. On defense, holes left by graduated linemen Dexter Larimore and Cameron Heyward, linebackers Ross Homan and Brian Rolle and backs Chimdi Chekwa, Aaron Gant, Jermale Hines and Devon Torrence are gaping. There are plenty of worthy fill-ins, but much like the situation with the NCAA, no one knows for sure how it’ll all work itself out. Despite questions about personnel, Fickell said there are no doubts about the Buckeyes’ motivation. “The attitudes are right. Guys are working together as a team,” he said. “They understand it’s all about each other. They’ve got the right focus.” Almost no one outside of the locker room expects much of the Buckeyes, winners of a record-tying six straight Big Ten titles until last year was erased from the memory banks. With the months of turmoil in their past, the specter of more NCAA penalties hanging over the program and the loss of all those departed stars, many are predicting four, five or even more losses. Ohio State hasn’t lost six in a season since 1999. “Yeah, it drives us a little bit because it’s always in the back of your head,” fullback Zach Boren says. “We’re so used to being, you know, the Big Ten champions and stuff like that, or ranked No. 1 preseason or whatever. But we look it as kind of fun. It’s kind of fun being the underdog for once. It’s a change of scenery.” After the past few months, a change of scenery in Columbus is welcome. It remains to be seen if it’ll be fun.

Stricker ties record with 63 on wild start at PGA
By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Steve Stricker stood a mere 10 feet away from the lowest round ever in a major, a captivating moment at any other championship. Not this one. Not with U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, the favorite at this PGA, trying to blast a 7-iron through a tree root. He injured his wrist so badly that he thought of quitting, yet somehow managed an even-par 70 despite not being able to hang onto the club with both hands. And not with Tiger Woods looking like a 14-time major champion for five holes, only to finish 14 shots out of the lead after stumbling through the sand and posting a 77, his second-worst score ever in a major. Already a memorable year in the majors, it looks like the PGA Championship wants a He never thought he could piece of the action. be atop the leaderboard, On a sweat-stained either.

One last bogey gave him his second-highest score in a major, behind the 81 he shot at Muirfield in the 2002 British Open when it was wet and windy. This day was simply steamy, which described Woods’ mood after a round that got away.

Defending champ Kang advances in Women’s Amateur

NL Capsules By The Associated Press ST. LOUIS — Albert Pujols kicked off a 4-for-4 night with a solo homer and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 on Thursday to avoid a three-game sweep. St. Louis pulled within four games of NL Central-leading Milwaukee, which has won 13 of 15. The Cardinals are the only team to beat the Brewers during their hot streak. Pujols entered with just five hits in 42 at-bats against the Brewers. He ended the slide with a drive in the first against Yovani Gallardo (13-8), tying him with teammate Lance Berkman for the National League lead with 28 homers. Pujols added two singles against Gallardo, who lasted just five innings. Chris Carpenter (8-8) gave up 10 hits in eight innings, but shut out the Brewers after they scored twice in the first. Fernando Salas finished for his 22nd save in 25 opportunities. Diamondbacks 8, Astros 5, 10 innings PHOENIX — Chris Young hit a game-ending three-run homer in the 10th inning, sending Arizona to the dramatic win. Houston was one strike away from wrapping up a 5-3 victory before pinchhitter Paul Goldschmidt belted a tying two-run shot off Mark Melancon for his second career homer. Ryan Roberts and Justin Upton led off the 10th with consecutive singles off Jeff Fulchino (1-4). Sergio Escalona came in and retired Miguel Montero before Young hit a drive to left for his sixth career gameending homer. J.J. Putz (2-2) pitched a scoreless 10th inning for the NL West-leading Diamondbacks, who moved a full game ahead of idle San Francisco with their third consecutive victory. Jason Bourgeois and Jose Altuve each had three hits for Houston, which has lost three straight games. Reds 2, Rockies 1 CINCINNATI — Johnny Cueto and two relievers made a pair of first-inning runs stand up and Cincinnati salvaged a split of its four-game series against Colorado. Cueto, hampered by an upset stomach while pitching a season-low 3 2-3 innings in his last start at Wrigley Field, bounced back to throw three-hit ball for seven shutout innings. He took over the NL ERA lead, lowering his mark from 2.06 to 1.94.

Cueto (8-5) struck out a season-high nine, including Carlos Gonzalez with the bases loaded to end the fifth inning. Francisco Cordero allowed Seth Smith’s 12th home run of the season leading off the ninth, then earned his 22nd save in 27 chances. Jhoulys Chacin (9-9) pitched eight innings for Colorado, allowing six hits and tying his season high with nine strikeouts. Padres 3, Mets 2 NEW YORK — Cameron Maybin homered and stole two bases before scoring the tiebreaking run on an error by substitute shortstop Ruben Tejada, rallying the Padres to a split of their four-game series against the Mets. Heath Bell pitched a perfect ninth and the last-place Padres improved to 5-2 on a 10-game trip that takes them to Cincinnati this weekend. Lucas Duda hit a two-run double for the Mets, who finished 3-6 on a disappointing homestand. New York has lost eight of 11 overall. With the Mets short on available relievers, Jonathon Niese (11-9) matched his career high with 122 pitches. He outlasted Cory Luebke in a matchup of young left-handers from Ohio, but couldn’t hold an early 2-0 lead. Chad Qualls (6-6) worked a perfect seventh to get the victory. Cubs 4, Nationals 3 CHICAGO — Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Pena hit back-to-back homers to lead the Cubs to the victory. Ramirez’s two-run shot in the seventh was his 21st of the season, and gave him 16 homers since June 25, tops in the major leagues in that stretch. Pena followed Ramirez with a drive that curled around the pole in right field and landed on Sheffield Avenue, putting the Cubs up 4-1. Ryan Dempster (10-8) limited Washington to a first-inning home run by Ryan Zimmerman and went seven innings, allowing three hits. Washington loaded the bases and scored a run in the ninth against Carlos Marmol, but he recovered to get his 26th save. Washington starter Jordan Zimmermann (7-10) allowed four runs and nine hits in 6 2-3 innings. AL Capsules

Yankees 6, Angels 5 NEW YORK — Robinson Cano hit a grand slam after Maicer Izturis’ two-out error in the seventh inning and the New York Yankees overcame another shaky performance by Mariano Rivera to beat the Los Angeles Angels 6-5 Thursday. Rivera gave up a three-run homer to pinch-hitter Russell Branyan on his first pitch in the ninth before getting two outs for his 30th save. Bobby Abreu connected against Rivera on Tuesday night for the first homer off the All-Star closer at Yankee Stadium since May 16, 2010. Rivera also faltered at Boston on Sunday night. Curtis Granderson followed his two double-play balls with a tying two-run homer in the sixth for the Yankees. Fernando Rodney (2-4) gave up two walks in the seventh for the Angels, who lost just their second series in the last 16 (13-2-1). Derek Jeter had three singles — two infield hits — and a walk to raise his average in day games to .352 (38 for 108). Rafael Soriano (2-1) got the win. Tigers 4, Indians 3 CLEVELAND — Justin Verlander gave Detroit exactly what it needed, becoming baseball’s first 17-game winner as the division-leading Tigers avoided being swept by Cleveland and opened a three-game lead over the Indians in the AL Central. Verlander (17-5) allowed three hits and struck out 10 in seven innings to earn career win No. 100 as the Tigers ended a 13-game losing streak in Cleveland. He was also on the mound for Detroit’s previous win at Progressive Field on May 8, 2010. In taking the series finale, the Tigers kept some distance over the Indians, who did trim one game off Detroit’s lead over the past three days. The teams will play 10 more times this season, including a season-ending three-game series in Detroit. Tigers relievers Joaquin Benoit and Jose Valverde each pitched a scoreless inning. Valverde earned his 33rd straight save this year, breaking the single-season team record set by Willie Hernandez in 1984. Fausto Carmona (5-12) took the loss. Rays 4, Royals 1 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Jeff Niemann won his sixth consecutive deci-

BARRINGTON, R.I. (AP) — Defending champion Danielle Kang won two matches Thursday to advance to quarterfinals in the U.S. Women’s Amateur at Rhode Island Country Club. The 18-year-old Kang, from Westlake Village, Calif., holed a 9-iron shot for eagle on the par-4 14th to finish off 17-year-old Emma Talley of Princeton, Ky., 6 and 4, then beat 14-year-old Cindy Ha of Demarest, N.J., 2 and 1. In the third round, Kang made a 3-foot birdie putt on the 15th and an 8-footer on the 16th to take a 2-up lead. She hit her tee shot within 2 feet on the par-3 17th, and Ha onceded the putt and the match. “I was unsure of myself until No. 15,” Kang said, “and for somebody young, Cindy is really good. It was whoever made minimum mistakes. We’re both tired.” Kang will face Demi Frances Runas of Torrance, Calif. Runas beat Lisa McCloskey of Montgomery, Texas, in 19 holes in the third round. In the other upper-bracket quarterfinal, Brooke Pancake of Chattanooga, Tenn., will play Erynne Lee of Silverdale, Wash. In the lower bracket, Stephanie Kono of Honolulu will face NCAA champion Austin Ernst of Seneca, S.C.; and Thailand’s Moriya Jutanugarn will play Casey Danielson of Osceola, Wis.


As journalists began digging into the who, what, when, where, why and how of Anders Behring Breivik, the deputy police chief of Oslo faced a media scrum and served up the day’s hottest sound bite. “What we know is that he is right wing and he is a Christian fundamentalist,” he said, the morning after the hellish attack on Norway’s Labor Party and on the children that were its future. That was the English version of the quote that jumped into American news reports and wire service stories around the globe. Breivik was officially a “Christian fundamentalist.” He was also a “Christian extremist” in a New York Times headline, a “religious conservative” on an ABC newscast and a “Christian terrorist” in an Associated Press report. However, the pivotal “fundamentalist” phrase sounded a bit different in the context of the televised Norwegian press conference that ignited this media storm, said the Rev. Arne H. Fjeldstad, a minister in the Church of Norway and a former senior editor at the major Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten. He is also one of my colleagues in the GetReligion.org project to study the mainstream media’s coverage of religion news. Translating from the Norwegian, Fjeld-

Fundamental truths about Breivik

On Religion
stad said the police claimed that Breivik was part of a “Christian, fundamentalist, extremeright environment in Norway.” The key was his violent opposition to the political policies known as “multiculturalism.” “I am not sure this police official knew what he was saying when he used the word ‘fundamentalist,’” said Fjeldstad. “I think he was trying to say that this was a crazy, lunatic, radical guy on the political fringe and he is calling himself a Christian.” It’s crucial to know, he added, that “fundamentalist” has literally been pulled into the Norwegian language from English -- even if there is very little history of Protestant fundamentalism in Norway. During debates inside the Church of Norway, said Fjeldstad, the term is primarily used by liberals to describe conservatives who stress the Bible’s authority as the “in-

spired word of God” and who defend traditional Christian doctrines on moral issues. While there are Christian groups in America who identify themselves as “fundamentalists,” this is not the case in Norway. As media around the world quickly reported, Breivik did identify himself as a Christian -- period -- on his Facebook page. He also added other details about his religious and cultural beliefs in his 1,500-page online manifesto, “2083 -- A European Declaration of Independence.” At the age of 15, Breivik apparently chose to be baptized and confirmed into the state church. However, the writings left behind by the 32-year-old radical also stress that he does not hold traditional Christian beliefs or practice the faith. Instead, he carefully identifies himself as a “Christian agnostic” or a “Christian atheist (cultural Christian).” In his manifesto, Breivik emphasizes his identity as a Freemason, his interest in Odinist Norse traditions and his role as a “Justiciar Knight” in a new crusade against Islam. “If you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and God then you are a religious Christian,” he wrote, in a passage that found its way into a few media reports. “Myself and many more like me do not necessarily have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and

God. We do however believe in Christianity as a cultural, social, identity and moral platform. This makes us Christian.” Breivik explicitly separates himself from conservative forms of Christianity, at one point noting: “It is therefore essential to understand the difference between a ‘Christian fundamentalist theocracy’ (everything we do not want) and a secular European society based on our Christian cultural heritage (what we do want). “So, no, you don’t need to have a personal relationship with God or Jesus to fight for our Christian cultural heritage. It is enough that you are a Christian-agnostic or a Christianatheist.” In other words, noted Fjeldstad, for Breivik the “Christian” label is cultural or political -- but not a statement of personal faith in his case. “If you are going to use the word ‘fundamentalist’ it must be used to describe someone who is a very conservative Christian when he is talking about the Bible and the practice of the faith,” he said. Thus, a fundamentalist Christian “would always place a heavy emphasis on having a personal faith in Jesus Christ. ... “So whatever Anders Breivik is, the last thing you can call him is a ‘fundamentalist’ Christian.”

DEAR DR. GOTT: Is there anything I can do to lower my triglyceride levels? My doctors have tried medications, but every one gives me heart issues. The heart specialist I was sent to says I can’t take any of the cholesterollowering medications presently on the market. I now take niacin daily and am also trying to change my diet. I walk three miles a day. I am 52, 45 pounds overweight (I’ve lost 20 in the last year) and am disabled from a bad back. I had spinal cord surgery in 2003, so my workouts for weight loss are limited. DEAR READER: Triglycerides are a type of fat (along with the various forms of cholesterol) found in the blood. They are converted by the body from calories that aren’t used or needed immediately. They are stored in the fat cells until hormones release them for energy between meals. Individuals who regularly consume more calories, especially from carbohydrates and fats, than are burned may develop hypertriglyceridemia (high triglycerides). Diagnosis is simple and made through a blood test. Levels below 100 are considered optimal, but those 149 or lower are normal. Borderline high levels range from 150 to 199, high from 200 to 499; those above 500 are considered very high. Treatment typically doesn’t include medication because weight loss, diet and exercise often work well. Diet changes include reducing calories, avoiding sugary/refined foods, reducing fat/cholesterol intake, eliminating trans fats, limiting alcohol, and choosing healthier fats, such as olive, peanut or canola oil. Replacing red

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
SATURDAY, AUG. 13, 2011 Be friendly to everyone in the next year, because alliances you form for other than business purposes will turn out quite fortunately. They’ll not only bring you a lot of happiness, but will also produce benefits that money can’t buy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- For unknown reasons, all your partnership arrangements could be rather testy. It won’t be anything you do or fail to do; it’s merely people being uncooperative at this point in time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Chances are you will let a self-imposed urgency cause you tremendous pressure and/or unnecessary complications. Relax! It won’t hurt you to leave some of your workload for tomorrow. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Taking offense too easily could cause a rift between you and those who work at your side. Guard against an inclination to take things so seriously that you blow matters out of proportion. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Be careful to share the spoils with those who help you achieve a huge objective. If you don’t, you could be resented and totally rejected in the future. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Unless you’re careful, you could put yourself in a position that would enable another to manipulate you at his or her discretion. Be your own person as much as you can. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you’re tired or your thinking isn’t as sharp as it should be for some reason, put off any complicated business matters until another day. You need to be fresh to enter the fray. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Before making any type of serious decision with your mate, be sure you’re in total agreement. If either one of you is unhappy, it could lead to discord that’ll fester for a long time. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Depending upon how important it is to you, delegating a critical task to an underling might not be too smart. Regardless of how the other party handles it, you’re not likely to be satisfied. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -It’s time to stop spinning your wheels trying to please someone who you hope would return your ardor. If the individual hasn’t responded after all this time, she or he isn’t about to. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Be doubly careful how you respond in public to any kind of negative developments that affect you personally. Not only is your temper fragile, your image is delicate as well. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -You tend to be a kidder, which is fine and good, as long as you’re prepared to be joshed by others in return. It won’t sit well if you want to dish it out but aren’t able to take it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Let the motto “Waste not, want not” be yours. Don’t let excess expenditures put you in the position of having to face financial pressure that you’re not prepared to handle.

London police say nearly 600 charged over riots
By JILL LAWLESS Associated Press LONDON — Police in London said today they have charged almost 600 people with violence, disorder and looting over deadly riots in Britain’s capital, as the city’s mayor said Londoners wanted to see “significant sentences” handed out to the guilty. Across the country, more than 1,700 people have been arrested. Courts in London, Birmingham and Manchester stayed open through a second night to deal with hundreds of alleged offenders. Hundreds of stores were looted, buildings were set ablaze and several people died amid the mayhem that broke out Saturday in London and spread over four nights across England. Victims include three men in Birmingham run down by a car as they defended their neighborhood. Police are questioning three suspects on suspicion of murder. And detectives opened a murder inquiry after a 68-year-old a man found in a London street after confronting rioters died of his injuries late Thursday. A 22-year-old man was arrested today on suspicion of murder. Police, meanwhile, hit back against claims they were too soft in their initial response to the disorder. Prime Minister David Cameron said officers had been overwhelmed at first, outmaneuvered by mobile gangs of rioters. He said “far too few police were deployed onto the streets. And the tactics they were using weren’t working.” That changed Tuesday, when 16,000 officers were deployed on London’s streets — almost three times the number of the night before. Cameron said the extra officers will remain on patrol through the weekend. Hugh Orde, president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, acknowledged that police had faced “an unprecedented situation, unique circumstances” — but said it was police themselves, rather than “political interference,” that got the situation under control. “The more robust policing tactics you saw were not a function of political interference,” he told the BBC. “They were a function of the numbers being available to allow the chief constables to change their tactics.” Cameron vowed “swift justice” for perpetrators, and courts were struggling to cope with a flood of defendants. The alleged looters and vandals included an 11-year-old boy, a teenage ballerina, a university English student from a prosperous commuter town and Natasha Reid, a 24-yearold university graduate who admitted stealing a TV from a looted electronics store. Her lawyer said she had turned herself in because she could not sleep for guilt. A judge told her she would probably go to jail when she is sentenced later. Another was Chelsea Ives, an 18-year-old chosen as a volunteer ambassador for next year’s Olympic Games. She is accused of burglary, violent disorder and throwing bricks at a police car during riots in north London on Sunday. Newspapers reported that Ives was charged after her parents saw her rioting on TV and turned her in. She was ordered detained until a court appearance next Wednesday. Mayor Boris Johnson said it was fitting that “significant sentences” were being handed down. “That is, frankly, what Londoners want to see,” he said. Britain’s Parliament was called back from its summer break for an emergency debate on the riots Thursday, with Cameron promising authorities would get strong powers to stop street mayhem from erupting again. He said authorities were considering new powers, including allowing police to order thugs to remove masks or hoods, evicting

Surgeons work wonders for chimpanzee attack victim
By DAVE COLLINS Associated Press

troublemakers from subsidized housing and temporarily disabling cell phone instant messaging services. He told lawmakers that he would look to cities like Boston for inspiration, and mentioned former Los Angeles, New York and Boston Police Chief William Bratton as a person who could help offer advice. Bratton said in a statement he’d be “pleased and honored” to provide services and counsel in any capacity, adding that he loves London and has worked with British police for nearly 20 years. Cameron also said the government, police and intelligence services were looking at whether there should be limits on the use of social media sites like Twitter and Facebook or services like BlackBerry Messenger to spread disorder. BlackBerry’s simple and largely cost free messaging service was used by rioters to coordinate their activities, Cameron’s office said. The government said it planned to hold talks with police chiefs, Twitter, Facebook and Blackberry manufacturer Research In Motion Ltd. But any move to disable the services temporarily is likely to be strongly opposed by civil libertarians.

HARTFORD, Conn. — The new face of a Connecticut woman who was mauled by a chimpanzee two years ago was revealed for the first time Thursday in photos showing a startling transformation. The pictures of Charla Nash were first shown on NBC’s “Today” show and in Hearst Connecticut Newspapers on Thursday morning. They were later released by Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, where she had face transplant surgery in May. Nash, 57, didn’t appear on “Today” because relatives said she was too weak to do an interview. In a statement released by the hospital, Nash thanked all the doctors, nurses and other medical experts who helped her over the past two years. “I will now be able to do things I once took for granted,” Nash said in the statement. “I will be able to smell. I will be able to eat normally. I will no longer be disfigured. I will have lips and will speak clearly once again. I will be able to kiss and hug loved ones. I am tremendously grateful to the donor and her family.” The show aired footage of Nash in a hospital bed, nodding to visitors, her face smooth and features appearing nearly normal. “Today” also reported that Nash was able to eat eggs with cream cheese after the transplant — the first solid food she’s had since the attack. Nash, who’s now living in a Boston-area nursing home, was attacked in February 2009 by a neighbor’s 200-pound pet chimpanzee, which went berserk after its owner asked Nash to help lure it back into her house in Stamford, Conn. The animal, named Travis, ripped off Nash’s nose, lips, eyelids and hands before being shot to death by police.

FBI aids Aruba investigation into missing American
By DILMA ARENDS GEERMAN Associated Press ORANJESTAD, Aruba — Aruba has turned to the FBI for help investigating the disappearance of 35-year-old Robyn Gardner of Maryland, an agency spokesman said Thursday as official doubts grew about the story told by the suspect in the case. FBI Special Agent Richard Wolf told The Associated Press that the U.S. agency is conducting interviews and giving other assistance to Aruba, which is taking the lead in the investigation. He declined to provide details or say who was being interviewed. Gardner was reported missing Aug. 2 by traveling companion Gary V. Giordano, who is also from Maryland. The 50-yearold man told police that Gardner disappeared while they were snorkeling off the southern tip of the Caribbean island. Aruban Solicitor General Taco Stein said earlier that police had detained Giordano because of seeming inconsistencies in his version of events. And on Thursday he said that if Gardner had drowned where Giordano had said, “We think that her body would have surfaced by now. “We know the spot where he said she must have drowned. We have searched there extensively and in view of the weather situation we are almost certain that the body would have come to the surface,” Stein said. He said it was also possible that Giordano had told police to search in the wrong spot. He said there were no unusual currents Aug. 2, when Gardner disappeared. “The water was very calm and clear ... The search took place all the way to Venezuela.” Giordano’s Aruban lawyer, Michael Lopez, insists his client

Executives see no reason to panic

Colorado fugitive sister says ‘I deserved to get shot’
By KRISTEN WYATT Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Americans are still spending money at casinos, amusement parks and concerts. Some are even shopping at Bloomingdales and looking at new homes. Even as the stock market’s wild swings heighten fears of another recession, many business executives see bright spots. Worrisome signs abound, too, especially for companies struggling to recover. But for a lot of corporate leaders, the general state of the economy has not changed much in the past three weeks of upheaval. Executives addressed the turmoil this week during earnings conference calls and in interviews with The Associated Press. From their vantage point, the economy looks less troubled than major stock indicators like the Dow Jones Industrial average, which has tumbled by 12 percent since July 21. Executives at rebounding companies still sound upbeat. Despite the confusion and uncertainty, they aren’t panicking — at least not yet. In some ways, the recent market upheaval has been easier for business leaders to endure because it’s not entirely surprising. The outlook in corporate America had been darkening even before the stock market’s harrowing plunges began to evoke memories of the recession’s nadir in late 2008. A survey of 1,200 senior executives taken last month by the Corporate Executive Board produced the lowest level of confidence since 2009. The same poll found only 38 percent planned to expand payrolls in the next year, down from 58 percent six months ago.

US troops return to deadly Afghan valley in east
By DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press KABUL, Afghanistan — Just months after pulling out of a remote slice of eastern Afghanistan dubbed the “Valley of Death,” U.S. troops are back reinforcing their once-abandoned bases in the area — a hotbed of the insurgency and a dangerous second front in the decade-old war. Stationing U.S. troops again in the isolated, sparsely populated Pech Valley will boost the coalition’s presence and firepower in the area near the Pakistan border just as the focus of the war shifts back to that region where infiltrating insurgents closest to al-Qaida and other militants hold sway. “The decision to send U.S. forces back to the Pech may also reflect a recognition that insurgent safe havens can cause us more harm than had been anticipated when we withdrew U.S. forces,” said Mark Moyar, research director of the U.S.-based counterinsurgency consultancy Orbis Operations. “Insurgencies thrive on such safe havens and use them to stage operations elsewhere,” he said. The U.S. military downplayed the decision to station troops again in Pech. The coalition, along with the Afghan National Army, always maintained a presence in the region, said Lt. Col. Chad Carroll, a spokesman for the coalition’s eastern command. “It’s just a matter of where they laid their heads at night,” he said. Carroll would not say how many U.S. troops are now stationed there or how many more would be sent. The Pech Valley in Kunar province, with bucolic green farmland surrounded by sweeping mountain ridges, was the scene of some of the fiercest fighting in the war and claimed the lives of more than 100 U.S. soldiers by some estimates. In May, the U.S.-led coalition pulled out of the valley, saying it wanted to reposition its forces in areas where more Afghans live as part of strategy to protect large population centers and provide the Afghan government with an opportunity to extend its reach from Kabul and provide services to its citizens with the help of donor nations. The former eastern commander Maj. Gen. John Campbell told The Associated Press at the time that he did not want his forces stuck in static positions. He said he wanted them to be mobile

is innocent and is being unjustly detained. “There is no concrete or direct indication that our client might be involved in any illicit act concerning his friend.” On Thursday, Stein and prosecutors said they will soon send an official request for legal assistance to the U.S. Justice Department. They also urged people to come forward who may have seen the missing American woman and Giordano on the Dutch Caribbean island. Prosecutors expect to release a photo of Giordano to aid potential witnesses, an unusual step in the Dutch legal system. A statement issued by prosecutors Thursday evening said Giordano “no longer cooperates with the investigation and has decided not to answer any more questions.” While Gardner’s tattoos may have been wild and rowdy, a close friend described her as a kind, quiet and trusting woman who sought solace in a tropical getaway with a man who is now suspected in her disappearance, a close friend said. The 35-year-old divorced woman accepted Giordano’s offer of a trip to Aruba despite earlier backing out of a cruise with the man she’d been friends with for over a year, Gardner’s friend and part-time roommate Christina Jones said Wednesday. “She’s a very trusting person,” Jones said at her hair salon in downtown Frederick, Maryland. “She’s a hardworking, loyal, standup female who has never said anything bad about anyone.” Gardner’s mother, Andrea Colson, said the family is hoping for the best outcome, praying Robyn will be with them soon and grateful to Aruban authorities and volunteers. “I hope you understand that we are being quiet as to not jeopardize the investigation,” Colson said in a statement released by the Natalee Holloway Resource Center, a Virginia-based missing persons group named for a young Alabama woman who vanished on Aruba in 2005.

PUEBLO, Colo. — A woman caught with her two brothers after a nationwide manhunt told Colorado authorities she “deserved to get shot” after pointing a gun at a police chief at the end of the siblings’ run from the law, according to a court document. Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, and Ryan Edward Dougherty, 21, are being held in Pueblo County, Colo., on bonds of $1.25 million each. The three made their first court appearance Thursday by video from jail, and none made any statement during the brief hearing. They face charges of attempted murder of a peace officer and assault on a peace officer. The charges stem from allegations that they shot rounds from an AK-47 at four patrol cars during a chase Wednesday on Interstate 25 in Colorado. The chase ended when troopers deployed spike strips to puncture the tires of the trio’s Subaru, and the vehicle rolled and crashed into a guardrail. According to an arrest affidavit, Lee Dougherty ran from the crash and was shot in the leg by Walsenburg Police Chief James Chamblerlain after she pointed a “machine pistol” at him.
