Joseph named 2011 Goat Queen
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com LIMA — Six years ago, Megan Joseph decided to follow in her brother’s footsteps and show goats at the Allen County Fair. Now 15, Joseph has been inducted into the ranks of the Junior Fair royalty as this year’s Goat Queen. “I remember my brother showing goats and I thought it would be really cool,” the member of Allen County Does and Kids 4-H Club said. “I really enjoy it because I’m a pretty competitive person and this is a really competitive category. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve also started helping the counselor out with more things as well, which I enjoy. Showing goats is a great experience; it’s really different from all of the other categories.” When the opportunity arose to put her name in for Goat Queen, Joseph was slightly nervous. “My mom had always wanted me to try out for fair royalty,” Joseph, daughter of

LIMA — When 13-yearold Caleb Haunhorst was confronted with the opportunity to join 4-H three years ago, he jumped at the chance because it sounded like something he would enjoy. “It just fun. I thought showing animals sounded fun — and it is,” he said. “I was originally going to show something else but the waiting list was too long so I decided to show dogs. I show a black Lab named Belle.” Haunhorst, who is the son of Todd and Trisha Haunhorst, is a Jefferson Middle School student and has a history of winning K-9 competitions. “I won first place both my first and second years — got the ribbons to prove it,” he said. “This year, I don’t have a specific goal, I just hope to score as high as I possibly can.” Being a member of one of the smaller 4-H groups, Allen County K-9s, Haunhorst hopes to see more people choose to show dogs. “The club is pretty small.

Hurricane Irene slams Puerto Rico; could hit US
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Puerto Ricans awoke to flooded and debrisstrewn streets today following the overnight passage of Hurricane Irene, which next took aim at the Dominican Republic on a path that could take the storm to the U.S. by the end of the week. The storm flooded streets, knocked down trees throughout the island, caused several rivers to overflow their banks and left more than a million Puerto Ricans without power. But there were no immediate reports of any deaths.

Norm and Kim Elwer, said. “There are age limits for it and when I was old enough for Goat Queen, I put in for it. I was a little wary at first because I wasn’t sure I would be able to deal with that kind of responsibility. Then I went to the interview and I did pretty well and next thing I knew I got a call saying I was this year’s Goat Queen. It’s exciting. It’s really an honor to have this.” Joseph, who is a student at St. John’s High School, also shows dogs at the fair with Allen County K-9s 4-H Club. “I show a Border Collie named Nell,” she said. “I’ve been showing dogs for seven years; longer than goats. I also hope to try out for K-9 Queen next year.” Joseph credits her parents as her inspiration and encouragement. “I’d just like to give thanks to my parents, for everything,” she said. “Without them, I wouldn’t be showing animals and I definitely wouldn’t be Goat Queen.”

Remnants of Irene were expected to continue lashing the island most of today, said Jose Alamo, a U.S. National Weather Service meteorologist in San Juan. “We’re still receiving rain and some wind associated with the system but it should start to get better as the day goes on,” Alamo said. Forecasters earlier said Irene was likely to pass south of Puerto Rico, but the storm shifted north and was passed directly over the U.S. island See IRENE, page 2

Scout leader fatally stabbed on hiking trip
BUNKER HILL, Ind. (AP) — A 76-year-old man has been stabbed to death while leading Boy Scouts on a hiking trip in northern Indiana, and a suspect who battered his mother and killed a dog near the trail is under arrest, police said. The assistant scout leader, Arthur L. Anderson, had stopped to identify a tree on the Nickel Plate Trail in Bunker Hill Sunday afternoon when an attacker approached him from behind and stabbed him in the neck, Indiana State Police said in a statement. Witnesses told police the attack was unprovoked. Anderson of Kokomo, Ind., died at the scene despite the efforts of medical personnel who responded to a 911 call. Police said he had been involved in scouting for 50 years. Officers later arrested Shane C. Golitko, 22, of Bunker Hill, after he ignored a state trooper’s attempted traffic stop and led police on an eight-mile chase, the Indiana State Police said in a statement. Police are holding Golitko without bond on a murder charge and two felony counts of battery at the Miami County Jail. A minute before the 911 call alerting authorities that

Anderson had been stabbed, Golitko’s mother Valerie Henson, called 911 to report that her son had assaulted her during an altercation at their home, about 150 yards south of the trail, state police said. Henson told police that after she fled to a neighbor’s house, her son walked to the trail where Anderson was later stabbed. She said her son later returned home, smashed up their home and stabbed two dogs, killing one. Henson was treated for a broken arm. Police did not say what sparked the altercation between Henson and Golitko.

Town turns to focus groups to cut budget
By HOWARD WILKINSON The Cincinnati Enquirer LOVELAND (AP) — This Cincinnati suburb had a novel idea on how to deal with the extensive cuts in state funding that are going to land on city hall’s door step — and the front steps of every city hall, village hill and township building in Ohio — very soon. City leaders put together four focus groups of about 45 randomly selected citizens, gave them a two-hour course on how local government funding works, showed them an extensive list of options, and set them to the task of trying to find enough savings in the city budget to fill a projected 2013 budget deficit of about $600,000. And they couldn’t do it. The city of Loveland is a good example of how intractable a problem the state of Ohio has created for local government. The focus group reached a consensus on about $255,500 worth of cuts. But the pain of many of those cuts would have been felt by Loveland employees — not the residents themselves. Gene Krebs, senior director of government affairs and policy for the Greater Ohio Policy Center, a group funded by private foundations to promote economic growth in Ohio, said he is not at all surprised that the focus group participants generally supported ideas that would not have a direct impact on the services they receive. What Loveland did with the focus groups, Krebs said, is “very commendable,” but he said they need to take it a step further. “They need to start looking at savings in the structure of government itself,” Krebs said. “They need to bring together a group of Loveland shopkeepers, retired businessmen, people who have worked in government and start coming up with ways of saving money through consolidation, shared services, working with other communities to save money. “That’s where the real savings are. That’s how you deal with the new reality in local government.” One thing that stood out, though, in the Loveland focus groups was that many of the participants — not all, but many — were willing to consider tax increases to make up the difference.

STATE/LOCAL

Public officials dialogue lunch set for Wednesday

“If you look at the consensus on the things people would be willing to cut, it’s not quite half of where we need to be,” said City Manager Tom Carroll. He came up with the idea of holding focus groups to see what residents of Loveland — a city of 12,000 that straddles Clermont, Warren and Hamilton counties — would be willing to do without.

Boat race returns to ‘lake algae’
CELINA (AP) — A speedboat race is returning to Ohio’s biggest inland lake following a year off because of toxic algae. The Celina Governor’s Cup Regatta is planned for next weekend at Grand Lake St. Marys. The lake is still plagued by blue-green algae but warnings have been toned down. Last summer, the lake was closed to swimming, boating and fishing, and people were warned not to touch the water. This year, visitors are advised that swimming, wading, swallowing the water and touching surface scum are not recommended. Mary Clinton with the Ohio Department of Health tells The Columbus Dispatch racers will want to avoid spray from the water. Race officials say they’ll be protected by helmets and enclosed cockpits. Up to 30,000 fans are expected.

ODU uses heat to fight bedbugs

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio Dominican University is literally turning up the heat on bedbugs that have greeted students moving in for the fall. WBNS-TV reports the university planned to raise the temperature in Lynam Hall to 140 degrees today in hopes of ridding the residence hall of the pests. Senior Kaitlin McNeish told the television station she found bites on her arms and legs while her roommate was “eaten alive” by bedbugs hiding in the other student’s mattress. University spokeswoman Sharon Reed says five students were bitten. Other dormitories were checked for bedbugs and were found to be clear of them. The university plans to provide students with information on how to spot bedbugs and stop them from spreading.

Congressman wants tough VA medical penalties

The Delphos Herald
www.delphosherald.com | 419-695-0015 ext. 122 405 N. Main St. | Delphos, OH 45833

DAYTON (AP) — An Ohio congressman wants Veterans Affairs medical personnel who ignore infection control standards to face possible imprisonment. Republican Rep. Mike Turner plans to announce legislation today allowing the government to fine and imprison for up to one year VA health employees for intentionally bypassing safeguards. The Dayton Daily News reports Turner is likely to formally introduce the bill after Labor Day. Turner has been critical of lapses at the VA Medical Center in Dayton that led to officials to urge 535 veterans to get tested because they were treated in a dental clinic where a former dentist allegedly failed to change his gloves and sterilize instruments between patients. Authorities say three patients tested positive for hepatitis, which can cause liver damage, although they’re not certain how they contracted it.

Pentagon adapts to new fight
By ROBERT BURNS AP National Security Writer WASHINGTON — The Sept. 11 attacks transformed the Pentagon, ravaging the iconic building itself and setting the stage for two long and costly wars that reordered the way the American military fights. Compared with a decade ago, the military is bigger, more closely connected to the CIA, more practiced at taking on terrorists and more respected by the American public but its members also are growing weary from war, committing suicide at an alarming rate and training less for conventional warfare. The partly gutted Pentagon was restored with remarkable speed after the hijacked American Airlines Boeing 757 slammed through its west side, setting the building ablaze and killing 184 people but recovering from the strain of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan will take far longer — possibly decades. The Pentagon’s leaders will have to adjust to a new era of austerity after a decade in which the defense budget doubled, to nearly $700 billion this year. The Army and Marine Corps in particular — both still heavily engaged in Afghanistan — will struggle to retrain, rearm and reinvigorate their badly stretched forces even as budgets begin to shrink and the troops themselves face an uncertain future; many are scarred by the mental strains of battle, and some face transition to civilian life at a time of economic turmoil and high unemployment. The cost of veterans’ care will march higher. As Robert Gates put it shortly before he stepped down as defense secretary this summer, peace will bring its own problems. The problem was not peace on 9/11. At the time, the military was focused almost entirely on external threats. Air defenses kept watch for planes and missiles that might strike from afar; there was little attention to the possibility that terrorists might hijack domestic airliners and use them as missiles. That changed with the creation of U.S. Northern Command in 2002, which now shares responsibility for defending U.S. territory with the Homeland Security Department. Terrorism was not a new challenge in 2001, but the scale of the 9/11 attacks prompted a shift in the U.S. mindset from defense to offense. The U.S. invaded Afghanistan on Oct. 7 in an unconventional military campaign that was coordinated with the CIA. That heralded one of the most profound effects of 9/11: a shift in the military’s emphasis from fighting conventional armyon-army battles to executing more secretive, intelligencedriven hunts for shadowy terrorists. That shift was important, but it came gradually as the military services clung to their Cold War ways. Still in debate is how the Taliban, which had shielded Osama bin Laden and other al-Qaida figures prior to the U.S. invasion and was driven from Kabul within weeks, managed to make a comeback in the years after the U.S. shifted its main focus to Iraq in 2003. That setback in Afghanistan, coupled with the longer-than-expected fight in Iraq, showed the limits of post-9/11 U.S. military power. It also pointed up one of the other key lessons of the past decade of war: It takes more than military muscle to win the peace. It takes the State Department, with its small army of diplomats and development specialists, and other government agencies working in partnership with the Pentagon. The military grew larger over the past decade, but the growth was uneven. The Army expanded from about 480,000 in 2001 to 572,000 this year, and the Marine Corps grew from 172,000 to 200,000, although both are to begin scaling back shortly. The Air Force and Navy, by contrast, got smaller. The Air Force lost about 20,000 slots since 2001 and the Navy lost about 50,000.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON (AP) — Texas would be among the biggest beneficiaries of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, standing to gain coverage for nearly 4 million uninsured residents. But Gov. Rick Perry blocked moves to lay the groundwork for that expansion of coverage, and among the alternatives he’s supported is an untested regional solution that could prove as controversial as Obama’s remake. With Perry running for the Republican presidential nomination, health care in Texas and his own ideas as governor will get fly-speck scrutiny on the national stage. His state is a study in contrasts, boasting world-renowned facilities like the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, along with the highest proportion of uninsured residents of any state — 26 percent. As a national candidate Perry has made total repeal of “Obamacare” central to his fledgling campaign. But it’s unclear what he would put in its place. And if the Supreme Court ultimately upholds all or parts of the law, Perry has signaled that he would help carry out key provisions to avoid defaulting to the federal bureaucracy. Texas has received various grants under Obama’s law for planning, insurance regulation and consumer education. The state employee benefits system says it expects to draw $60 million in federal subsidies this year to help cover its early retirees, cashing in on a provision of the law. But when Republican state Rep. John Zerwas tried to move legislation to set up an insurance purchasing pool required by the national overhaul, he ran into a veto threat from Perry. The purchasing pools — called exchanges — are one of the key features of Obama’s law. Run by the states, they would let consumers buy coverage from a choice of private plans. Most individuals and families in the exchanges would be eligible for federal tax credits to lower their premiums. Exchanges are supposed to open in 2014. If a state doesn’t act in advance, the law authorizes the federal government to set up and run its exchange. And since the Texas legislature meets only every other year, this past session was seen as perhaps the state’s only opportunity. But Zerwas said Perry told him he was concerned that moving ahead with the exchange legislation would undermine a multistate lawsuit against the federal overhaul that Texas is part of, not to mention creating other political problems. The lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of the law’s requirement that Americans obtain health insurance — the socalled individual mandate — an issue on which lower courts have split. “Unfortunately, whether we like it or not, health insurance exchanges have become synonymous with Obamacare,” said Zerwas. An anesthesiologist from the Houston suburbs, Zerwas said he believes it’s worth taking the flak to guarantee that Texas will retain control of its insurance market. The governor disagreed.

Social Security disability almost insolvent
By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press WASHINGTON — Laidoff workers and aging baby boomers are flooding Social Security’s disability program with benefit claims, pushing the financially strapped system toward the brink of insolvency. Applications are up nearly 50 percent over a decade ago as people with disabilities lose their jobs and can’t find new ones in an economy that has shed nearly 7 million jobs. The stampede for benefits is adding to a growing backlog of applicants — many wait two years or more before their cases are resolved — and worsening the financial problems of a program that’s been running in the red for years. New congressional estimates say the trust fund that supports Social Security disability will run out of money by 2017, leaving the program unable to pay full benefits, unless Congress acts. About two decades later, Social Security’s much larger retirement fund is projected to run dry as well. Much of the focus in Washington has been on fixing Social Security’s retirement system. Proposals range from raising the retirement age to means-testing benefits for wealthy retirees. But the disability system is in much By CHARLES BABINGTON Associated Press worse shape and its problems defy easy solutions. The trustees who oversee Social Security are urging Congress to shore up the disability system by reallocating money from the retirement program, just as lawmakers did in 1994. That would provide only short-term relief at the expense of weakening the retirement program. Claims for disability benefits typically increase in a bad economy because many disabled people get laid off and can’t find a new job. This year, about 3.3 million people are expected to apply for federal disability benefits. That’s 700,000 more than in 2008 and 1 million more than a decade ago. “It’s primarily economic desperation,” Social Security Commissioner Michael Astrue said in an interview. “People on the margins who get bad news in terms of a layoff and have no other place to go and they take a shot at disability,” The disability program is also being hit by an aging population — disability rates rise as people get older — as well as a system that encourages people to apply for more generous disability benefits rather than waiting until they qualify for retirement. Retirees can get full Social Security benefits at age 66, a threshold gradually rising to 67. Early retirees can get reduced benefits at 62. However, if you qualify for

GOP may OK tax increase that Obama hopes to block
WASHINGTON — News flash: Congressional Republicans want to raise your taxes. Impossible, right? GOP lawmakers are so virulently anti-tax, surely they will fight to prevent a payroll tax increase on virtually every wage-earner starting Jan. 1, right? Apparently not. Many of the same Republicans who fought hammer-and-tong to keep the George W. Bush-era income tax cuts from expiring on schedule are now saying a different “temporary” tax cut should end as planned. By their own definition, that amounts to a tax increase. The tax break extension they oppose is sought by President Barack Obama. Unlike proposed changes in the income tax, this policy helps the 46 percent of all Americans who owe no federal income taxes but who pay a “payroll tax” on practically every dime they earn. There are other differences as well, and Republicans say their stand is consistent with their goal of long-term tax policies that will spur employment and lend greater certainty to the economy. “It’s always a net positive to let taxpayers keep more of what they earn,” says Rep. Jeb Hensarling, “but not all tax relief is created equal for the purposes of helping to get the economy moving again.” The Texas lawmaker is on the House GOP leadership team. The debate is likely to boil up in coming weeks as a special bipartisan committee seeks big deficit reductions and weighs which tax cuts are sacrosanct. At issue is a tax that the vast majority of workers pay, but many don’t recognize because they don’t read, or don’t understand their pay stubs. Workers normally pay 6.2 percent of their wages toward a tax designated for Social Security. Their employer pays an equal amount, for a total of 12.4 percent per worker. As part of a bipartisan spending deal last December,

disability, you can get full benefits, based on your work history, even before 62. Also, people who qualify for Social Security disability automatically get Medicare after two years, even if they are younger than 65, the age when other retirees qualify for the government-run health insurance program. Congress tried to rein in the disability program in the late 1970s by making it tougher to qualify. The number of people receiving benefits declined for a few years, even during a recession in the early 1980s. Congress, however, reversed course and loosened the criteria, and the rolls were growing again by 1984. The disability program “got into trouble first because of liberalization of eligibility standards in the 1980s,” said Charles Blahous, one of the public trustees who oversee Social Security. “Then it got another shove into bigger trouble during the recent recession.” Today, about 13.6 million people receive disability benefits through Social Security or Supplemental Security Income. Social Security is for people with substantial work histories, and monthly disability payments average $927. Supplemental Security Income does not require a work history but it has strict limits on income and assets. Monthly SSI payments average $500.

Congress approved Obama’s request to reduce the workers’ share to 4.2 percent for one year; employers’ rate did not change. Obama wants Congress to extend the reduction for an additional year. If not, the rate will return to 6.2 percent on Jan. 1. Obama cited the payroll tax in his weekend radio and Internet address Saturday, when he urged Congress to work together on measures that help the economy and create jobs. “There are things we can do right now that will mean more customers for businesses and more jobs across the country. We can cut payroll taxes again, so families have an extra $1,000 to spend,” he said. Social Security payroll taxes apply only to the first $106,800 of a worker’s wages. Therefore, $2,136 is the biggest benefit anyone can gain from the one-year reduction. The great majority of Americans make less than $106,800 a year. Millions of workers pay more in payroll taxes than in federal income taxes.

Kyle Busch outlasts Johnson in Michigan
BROOKLYN, Mich. — Kyle Busch held off Jimmie Johnson — for the time being, at least. Busch outlasted Johnson to win Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway, pulling away after a late caution for his fourth victory of the season. The win gave Busch a 10-point lead over Johnson at the top of the points standings but there are still three more races before the Chase for the Sprint Cup starts. Johnson is the 5-time defending champion on NASCAR’s top circuit; Busch is merely the latest driver who seems poised to challenge him. “Certainly it’s going to be a run down to the end,” Busch said. “The points are tight. With any bad day it seems to hurt you so much, you really have to concentrate on battling back, getting yourself back up in the points.” Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick pushed Johnson to the limit last year but fell short in the end. Now Busch has his sights on the championship; although there’s plenty of racing still to come, he aced Sunday’s test in what became a head-to-head dash to the finish with the man everyone is trying to wrest the title from. Busch passed Johnson with about a dozen laps remaining and was opening up a comfortable margin when his brother Kurt Busch scraped a wall, forcing a caution from laps 198-201. The yellow flag erased much of Kyle Busch’s lead but he was able to fight off a quick move from Johnson after the restart, then held on to win during the green-whitecheckered finish. “I said this about him a while ago: once he figured out how to win races, he’d win a lot,” Johnson said. “He certainly has done that. His big test is for a championship. Once he understands that and figures that out, I think he’ll win a lot of those too.” It was Busch’s first Cup win at Michigan. Brad Keselowski finished third, his third consecutive top-3 finish and fifth top-10 in his past six races. Mark Martin was fourth. Keselowski has been impressive recently despite breaking his left ankle earlier this month during a test session. He’s now 12th in the standings; with two victories, he looks likely to make the Chase as a wild card. The top 10 drivers and the two drivers ranked 11th to 20th with the most victories earn spots for the Chase. “I would like to make the top 10 on our own merits, if for no other reason than to push away all the naysayers of the wild-card system,” Keselowski said. “It’s going to be good either way. I’m a big fan of the wild card. It’s going to be something that’s going to reward me. I think it’s a great way of showing a commitment to our fans to rewarding those who can win races.” Hamlin, Kyle Busch’s teammate with Joe Gibbs Racing, would be the other wild card if the regular season ended now but did little to help himself Sunday with a 35th-place showing. Hamlin, who had to stop in at the garage about two-thirds of the way through the race, is 14th in the standings with one win — at Michigan back in June. Pole-sitter Greg Biffle led for 86 of the first 100 laps Sunday but it didn’t last. Kyle Busch passed him around the midway point of the planned 200-lap, 400-mile race. Jeff Gordon took the lead not long after that and Johnson appeared to be in great shape when he made a pit stop just before a caution that started on lap 169.

defense because our midfielders were so strong at keeping the ball down there.” Three Lincolnview players missed the game because of family events, a situation which tested the stamina of some of the Lancers. “I was really worried with the heat,” added Coach McCleery. “Some of my main players played the full 80 minutes without a break and did a good job, kept hustling the whole time, especially the four seniors (Markward, Clayton Longstreth, Joseph Shoppell, Mike Klausing).” They host Fort Wayne Fusion 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Thatcher, a junior forward, poked in a rebound to start the scoring with 35:14 left in the first half. She followed up with an unassisted goal from just outside the right corner of the penalty area at the 17:02 mark. The Spartans’ super-fast freshman, Hannah Rinehart, outran the Lancer defense and blasted one in at 14:33 to cut the margin to 2-1. Lima Senior tied it at 2-2 on a penalty kick by junior Amity Calhoun with 10:53 left in the half. Thatcher, however, put the visitors up for good at 10:17 by eluding the Spartan defenders and punching the ball past keeper Aubrie Nuckles. Lincolnview freshman forward Hannah McCleery curled a long one into the upper right corner of the net at the 3:00 mark to make it 4-2. The ball remained in the Lancer offensive end of the field for much of the second half. For the match, the Lancers fired 26 shots (17 on-goal. Lima got off only eight shots (3 on-goal). Lincolnview coach Katrina Smith split the goalkeeping duties by halves: sophomore

By Jim Cox Times Bulletin Correspondent sports@timesbulletin.com LIMA — No one could tell that Saturday was the firstever varsity soccer matches for the Lincolnview boys and girls teams at Lima Stadium. The Lancer boys stymied Lima Senior 3-1 in the afternoon. Although the visitors outshot the Spartans 25 (11 on-goal) to five (3), Lincolnview didn’t lead until halfway through the second half when senior Kevin Markward drilled a long sharply angled shot from the right side -- 2-1, Lancers, with 21:01 showing. Sophomore Conner McCleery clinched it with a penalty kick with 6:00 left. Lima Senior seldom got the ball into the Lincolnview end in the first half but the first time was a charm; freshman Alex Ehora put on a dazzling ballhandling display and knocked home a shot from just outside the left corner of the penalty area at the 19:26 mark. That proved to be the last Spartan highlight in the match. Lincolnview tied it with 11:13 remaining in the first 40 minutes. Junior Evan Williams cashed in a nice assist by sophomore Doug Hicks to knot things up. “I was worried that first half,” said Lancer coach Mark McCleery. “We took a lot of shots and controlled the ball a long time but I was worried the kids would get down because we hadn’t scored a goal yet.” He split goalkeeping duties between junior Mark Evans (1st half and late 2nd half -- 2 saves) and Conner McCleery (no saves). The Lancer defense, however, made their job much easier. “I was happy with the team as a whole,” said Coach McCleery. “I don’t stick anybody in defense because they want a chance to score, too, so half the game two of my guys are playing defense and half the game they’re on offense and we do that on both ends. Today, they got a break on

Jordan Ludwig (no saves) handled the first half and freshman Julia Thatcher (1 save) the second. “For the first game, I’m pleased -- very pleased,” said Smith. “We have three subs this year, which is more than we’ve had in the past, but, really, the whole team can play the game. I was really pleased (with the defense) -our girls do a lot of talking and rotating, so they covered Rinehart really well. I was nervous when I saw how fast she was. On offense, Kaylee did really well. Haley (McAbee) had a good day and Hannah was great today, especially for a freshman.” ----Ottoville soccer teams o pen successfully The Ottoville boys and girls soccer teams opened the 2011 campaign Saturday on a winning note. At Sidney Lehman, the boys of coach Eric Gerker dominated the Cavaliers 6-1. The Big Green outshot Lehman 12-4, with Austin Markward saving three shots for the visitors and Lamphar notching seven. Adam Beining had two goals for the Green and Gold, along with single tallies from Sam Beining, Greg Rue, Evan Laudick and Logan Gable. Joseph Simpson had Lehman’s only tally. At Ottoville in an evening matchup, the Lady Green gave new head coach Tim Kimmet a victorious opener, outlasting Wapakoneta 2-1. Ottoville won the shots on-goal 11-9. Ottoville’s goals came with five minutes left in the first half on a Haley Landwehr shot and the match-winner with five minutes remaining in the contest on a goal by Rachel Turnwald, with assists to Lauren Koch and Kaytlin Landin. The boys host Van Wert 7 p.m. tonight, while the Lady Green take on Jefferson 5 p.m. Thursday at the old Fort Jennings high school field, Keith Hamel Memorial Field.

Johnson was able to stay out on the track while other cars made pit stops under the yellow flag and led on the restart. But Kyle Busch was lurking back in third place in his No. 18 Toyota and eventually passed Johnson. “Wish I could have hung on,” Johnson said. “I got away from Kyle but as I was pulling away, I was sliding the car pretty bad. ... Eventually, he got to me. With that last restart, I had a shot once again, got a good restart next to him, but couldn’t make it happen.” Busch has three straight top-3 showings. He was second to Keselowski at Pocono and third at Watkins Glen. Busch won his 23rd career Sprint Cup race, pulling even with Kurt Busch in that category. Now, 26-year-old Kyle would like to match another of his brother’s accomplishments by winning a series title, as Kurt did in 2004. “He’s always still got that carrot over me,” Kyle Busch added. “Certainly, being the younger brother, I’ve had a little bit shorter time being

here, but still, it’s great to see both of us be as competitive as we’ve been and as successful as we’ve been.” Brown races to 4th Top Fuel win at NHRA BRAINERD, Minn. — Antron Brown raced to his fourth win of the season in Top Fuel on Sunday at the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway. Johnny Gray (Funny Car), Greg Anderson (Pro Stock) and LE Tonglet (Pro Stock Motorcycle) were also winners at the 15th of 22 events in the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series. Brown powered his dragster past his Don Schumacher Racing teammate Tony Schumacher in the final round to collect the win. His final round run of 3.844 seconds at a top speed of 319.22 mph proved strong enough to secure his 29th career victory. It also moved him up to the second spot in the point standings with just one race remaining until the start of the 6-race playoffs to determine the champions in each category. While Brown moved up in the point standings, Top Fuel pilot Brandon Bernstein clinched his berth in the Countdown to the Championship with his second round finish on Sunday. Only the final three spots in the Top 10 point standings in Top Fuel remain open. Former Pro Stock driver Gray raced to his first Funny Car win. Gray’s run of 4.113 seconds at a top speed of 307.02 in his Dodge Charger was strong enough to get past Don Schumacher Racing teammate Ron Capps. Gray moved to within 62 points of 10th-place driver Bob Tasca with just one race left before the cutoff for the Countdown to the Championship. Anderson followed up his runner-up finish in Seattle with a win against Erica Enders. Anderson drove his Pontiac GXP to a 6.599 at 209.26 to get his fourth win of the season and 69th of his career. The win also moved Anderson to the top of the Pro Stock point standings. Tonglet raced to his fourth win of the season. Tonglet powered his Suzuki past runner-up Hector Arana Jr. with a 6.954 at 191.27 for his ninth career win. The win also moved him up to the third spot in the point standings. Fellow Pro Stock Motorcycle competitors Andrew Hines, Matt Smith and Hector Arana Sr. all clinched their berths in the Countdown to the Championship on Sunday.

Sherman masters Modifieds, Koz grabs Stocks triumph
The Delphos Herald LIMA — The next to the final night of the 2011 racing season at Limaland Motorsports Park serves to set the table for the follow week’s championships but also can produce important stories on its own. A bounce-back effort from Todd Sherman in the K & N UMP Modifieds, first-time season win for Jeff Koz in the Budweiser Thunderstocks and a once-a-year visit for the Tuff Trucks made Mike Hicks a grateful winner. It sets up razor-thin margins among the leaders in two of the three divisions that will crown champions next weekend. The 20-lap modified feature became an early showcase for UNOH Racer Kody Weisner. The undergraduate from Michigan took full advantage of his outside front-row starting position. Weisner, known for racing the high side of the track, took to the top shortly after the green flag came out. Behind him was a thrilling duel between Todd Sherman and Ontario’s Justin Coulter for the second position. A restart on lap 11 saw Sherman stick the nose of his machine on Weisner’s tail and manage to produce a clear pass on the bottom of the track through lap 13. Unlike Sherman, Weisner didn’t really threaten the lead but held on for the runner-up finish, with Sherman posting his 4th feature win of the season. “The college guy (Kody Weisner) is doing a great job,” said Sherman. “He got to the outside and was good, although a little bit loose.” It was another impressive moment for Racer Motorsports from UNOH. “I have a couple of UNOH guys with my team, one a graduate, the other still in school,” noted Sherman, then looking ahead, “It’s going to be a great championship battle (8/26). Racing with this division is a lot of fun. We’ll be going over this car with a fine-tooth comb this week and give it 100 percent next week for the championships.” Lima’s Koz fulfilled one of his season goals by winning the 15-lap Budweiser Thunderstocks feature and qualifying for the King of the Quarter Mile race. “I’ve had a rough year, so I’m happy to get this win,” said Koz, an outside row-2 starter. For the second consecutive week, Kevin Gossard took the early race lead and then suffered a mechanical break that ended his evening. With Koz running second through the first four circuits, Gossard’s misfortune gave Koz the lead and he never surrendered it. “The track is good tonight and made for a good race,” said the newest Limaland Motorsports Park feature winner. “I felt if I stayed up top and got our momentum that we’d be alright. I made King of the Quarter Mile last year and I’m happy to get in again.” The visiting Tuff Trucks showed good grip on the highbanked 1/4-mile track and produced four different leaders during an exiting 12-lap feature. The opening trip around saw a 3-wide battle at the startfinish as the 17-truck field was fully engaged. Pole-sitter Matt Twining, fellow frontrow starter Chris Hicks, Jerry Butler and eventual race winner Mike Hicks were the collective front-runners. Butler lost his lead after spinning out on lap 4. Later, Chris Hicks gave up the point to Mike Hicks on lap number 9. Hicks strolled for the final three circuits and easily held off Gabe Twining and Chris Hicks. “You couldn’t ask for better track conditions than are here tonight at Limaland,” exclaimed Hicks. “I’m honored to be here in front of all these fans.” The 14th Annual Limaland Season Point Championships and the Engine Pro NRA Sprint Invaders will conclude the 2011 racing season on Friday. The evening is stacked with showdowns as the Elwer Fence Sprints, K & N UMP Modifieds,

The Associated Press EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Plaxico Burress caught three passes for 66 yards, including an over-theshoulder 26-yarder for a touchdown, in his first game in nearly three years to help the New York Jets beat the Cincinnati Bengals 27-7 in a preseason game Sunday night. Burress, signed last month after serving 20 months in prison on a gun charge, made his debut with the Jets (1-1) a memorable one. He caught a 20-yard pass from Mark Sanchez on the Jets’ first offensive play and another 20-yard grab in the second quarter but the highlight came on New York’s last offensive play of the first half. Burress took off down the left sideline, drew separation from defensive back Fred Bennett and hauled in a pass from Sanchez and fell into the end zone to put New York up 17-7. Sanchez finished 12-of-20 for 173 yards and two touchdowns, the first to Santonio Holmes, as the Jets’ starting offense played the entire first half. The running game, without starter Shonn Greene, stalled during the first two quarters, gaining just 17 yards, as a driving rain fell at the New Meadowlands Stadium. LaDainian Tomlinson had just 16

yards on nine carries. Cincinnati’s offense struggled badly early as rookie Andy Dalton, the second-round pick out of TCU, threw two interceptions that resulted in scores by New York. Dalton was 4-of-11 for 29 yards after one quarter and finished 8-of-19 for 86 yards. The Bengals are 0-2. Chargers 20, Cowboys 7 ARLINGTON, Texas — Philip Rivers led San Diego to scores on two of his three drives, then coach Norv Turner earned his club score another touchdown with two successful challenges on a single series in the Chargers’ victory over Dallas. Rivers went 8-of-11 for 92 yards, with a 7-yard touchdown pass to Randy McMichael. Dallas’ Tony Romo was 8-of-12 for 58 yards, with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten. Romo also threw an interception on an illadvised pass. Turner got an interception by Billy Volek overturned and got a touchdown for Ryan Mathews on a play officials declared him out of bounds inside the 1. Both teams are 1-1. Tonight’s exhibition game pits Chicago at the N.Y. Giants.

Safeway Classic NORTH PLAINS, Ore. — Suzann Pettersen rallied to win the LPGA Safeway Classic, overcoming a 9-stroke deficit with a 7-under 64 and beating Na Yeon Choi with a par on the first hole of a playoff. In the playoff, Choi’s second shot on the par-4 18th went into the water to the right of the green and she missed a putt for bogey before Pettersen sank her winning putt. Pettersen, coming off a victory Aug. 7 in the European Tour’s Ladies Irish Open, won her second LPGA Tour title of the year and eighth overall. The Norwegian star jumped to No. 2 in the world behind Yani Tseng. Choi finished with a 73 to match

The Associated Press GREENSBORO, N.C. — Webb Simpson won the Wyndham Championship for his first PGA Tour title, finishing with a bogey-free 3-under 67 on Sunday for a 3-stroke victory. The Raleigh native and former Wake Forest standout had an 18-under 262 total at Sedgefield Country Club. George McNeill (64) was second and Tommy Gainey (69) was third at 14 under in the final event before the PGA Tour playoffs. Carl Pettersson (69), Vijay Singh (65), Jerry Kelly (65), Kyung-tae Kim (66) and Charles Howell III (67) followed at 13 under. Simpson turned in a steady, bogey-free round and gave himself plenty of breathing room with birdies on Nos. 15 and 16. After taking the lead during Round 3 with a late 5-hole stretch of four birdies and an eagle, Simpson opened his final round with eight straight pars before moving to 16 under with a birdie on No. 9.

Pettersen at 6 under on Pumpkin Ridge’s Ghost Creek Course. Christina Kim shot a 78 to finish a dismal 11 over but it was just enough to keep her in the 10th spot in the points standings for the U.S. Solheim Cup team that will take on their European counterparts in late September at Killeen Castle. Rosie Jones then completed the 12-player team by adding Vicky Hurst and Ryann O’Toole as captain’s picks. Senior Players Championship HARRISON, N.Y — Fred Couples made a 3-foot birdie putt on the third hole of a playoff with John Cook to win the Seniors Players Championship for his first major victory on the Champions Tour.

Nitties had a 26-under 258 total at Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate. He earned $99,000 to jump from 53rd to 12th on the money list with $150,537, putting him in position to earn a 2012 PGA Tour card as a top-25 finisher on the final list. Jonas Blixt (66) and Nick Flanagan (68) tied for second. Czech Open CELADNA, Czech Republic — England’s Oliver Fisher won the Czech Open for his first European Tour victory, closing with a 3-under 69 for a 2-stroke victory over Sweden’s Mikael Lundberg. The 22-year-old Fisher finished at 13-under 275 at Prosper Golf Resort. Lundberg also had a 69.

Padres honored all-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman by retiring his No. 51, Heath Bell (3-4) blew the save by allowing Mike Cameron’s solo homer with two outs in the ninth. Hundley started the winning rally in the bottom of the inning with a triple off the bottom of the center field wall against Edward Mujica (8-5). American League ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Johnny Damon lost a grand slam to a video review in the seventh inning, then hit a game-ending home run in the ninth that lifted the Tampa Bay Rays over the Seattle Mariners 8-7 Sunday. Damon connected for a leadoff shot in the ninth on the first pitch from Dan Cortes (0-2), sending his 11th homer of the season into the right-field seats. The Rays trailed 5-4 in the seventh when Damon launched a drive to rightcenter field. First ruled a home run, the umpires changed the call to a 3-run double after a video review. Kyle Farnsworth (5-1) pitched a perfect ninth as the Rays won for the 10th time in 12 games. Yankees 3, Twins 0 MINNEAPOLIS — Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-5 in his return to the lineup but Curtis Granderson hit an inside-the-park home run and New York took 3-of-4 from Minnesota.

Nova allowed five hits and struck out five and Mariano Rivera picked up his 33rd save in 38 tries. Joe Mauer had three hits for the Twins, who lost starter Nick Blackburn in the second inning because of a strained right forearm. Phil Dumatrait (1-2) got the

loss in two innings of relief. Tigers 8, Indians 7 DETROIT — Centerfielder Austin Jackson threw out Kosuke Fukudome at the plate to complete a game-ending double play and first-place Detroit completed a 3-game sweep of Cleveland. Delmon Young and Victor Martinez homered in the Tigers’ 7-run third inning. Jose Valverde pitched the ninth for his 37th save in as many tries but it wasn’t easy. He walked Fukudome to start the inning and then hit Jason Donald on an 0-2 pitch. Jack Hannahan bunted the runners over before pinch-hitter Matt LaPorta lined to center field and Jackson threw a perfect strike to get Fukudome by a step. Cleveland’s Ubaldo Jimenez (1-1) took the loss, giving up eight runs in 3 1/3 innings, but Rick Porcello couldn’t take advantage, allowing five in 3 2/3. Phil Coke, the fifth of seven Tigers pitchers, got the win to improve to 2-8. Red Sox 6, Royals 1 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jon Lester curbed the Kansas City Royals on three hits for 6-plus innings and Jason Varitek tripled for the first time in more than four years. Carl Crawford and Darnell McDonald hit solo home runs for Boston. Lester (13-7) has allowed two runs and six hits in 13 innings in his past two starts to beat Kansas City and Tampa Bay. Varitek’s 2-out triple rolled to the right-center fence, allowing Jed Lowrie to score in the fifth to break a scoreless deadlock. Lowrie led off the inning with a single and moved to second on a Crawford ground out. Varitek’s triple was his first since June 24, 2007. McDonald, who had three hits, hit his fifth home run of the season in the sixth on an 0-2 pitch from Royals rookie lefthander Danny Duffy (3-7).

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
Tuesday, Aug. 23, 2011 Favorable improvements can be developed next year in three different important areas of your life. Possibilities and opportunities will mushroom, and feed into each other. It’ll prove that success begets success. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Friends or co-workers are likely to tell you things that they wouldn’t tell others, mostly because they trust you not to make light of what’s bothering them and blab it to the world. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Read, attend a lecture or go someplace new where you can learn something different. Remember, not only is knowledge power but it will also help you develop a good philosophy of life. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Different ideas that originate from others will prove to be extremely advantageous when you put them into play. You’ll know exactly how to adapt them to your needs. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Make it a point to iron out an issue or matter that has proven to be a source of irritation for you lately. A frank and honest discussion with the parties involved will make everybody happy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A project you’ve been avoiding just because it looks a bit overwhelming can be accomplished with relative ease. Give it a go and see for yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your enthusiastic, positive attitude will be a big plus, not only for yourself but also for all those whose lives you touch. Your upbeat presence alone will lift the spirits of companions. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Follow through on any ideas you get to beautify the spaces in which you spend the most time, including the home and the workplace. What you conceive is likely to produce lasting, favorable effects. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -This day will be far more enjoyable if you can get out and move around a bit. Whether you’re calling on clients, running special errands or dropping in on old friends, you’ll have a grand old time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Your ability for spotting bargains is likely to be far sharper than usual, so find some time to shop a bit. If you can’t get out, browse on the Internet during your break. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It would be wise to be a good listener and a keen observer, especially when you’re around admirable minds. Put to good use everything you learn. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Take care not to treat with disdain benign developments just because you think of them as insignificant. Opportunities stemming from little bits of knowledge can be monumental. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Try to go to places that are a bit different, if you can. Mingling with new faces, ideas and experiences can offer you novel perspectives and refresh your attitude.

Still uneven post-9/11 data-cloaking
By JUSTIN PRITCHARD Associated Press Take a virtual tour of New York on Google Maps and some blurry images appear. As you zoom down in satellite view, what looks like the crisp outline of the airport terminal near upstate Buffalo dissolves into a fuzzy white blob. Instead of cars, blotches of color sit in the main parking lot. Swing southeast 140 miles to the prison in Elmira, near the Pennsylvania border, or the atomic research lab in Schenectady, about 180 miles northeast from there — and the images hide behind the same type of blur. The alterations are not the work of a hacker. In the post-9/11 world, they’re the product of New York state’s homeland security apparatus, done in the hope of preventing terrorists from attacking. As a staggered nation scrambled after Sept. 11, 2001, to anticipate possible next targets, there was a widespread sanitizing of publicly available information suddenly viewed as tipsheets and road maps for terrorists. But what also resulted, as shown by an Associated Press review for the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, were some befuddling inconsistencies — telling private pilots not to fly over nuclear reactors, for example, and then not allowing them access to plant locations. It was all based on a fear that seemingly innocuous fragments of information could be paired to hatch an attack. If authorities couldn’t be sure what information might help, they concluded it was best to keep as much secret as possible. Or if total secrecy couldn’t be justified, at least make the information much harder to obtain. Security-sensitive information wasn’t just the coordinates of the nation’s nuclear power plants, or the locations of massive inventories of dangerous chemicals, or detailed maps of potentially explosive natural gas pipelines. Withheld from public view were things that average citizens might need to know: emergency response plans for public buildings in Idaho, building blueprints in Delaware, and drinking water test results in Texas. The efforts sometimes have tried to defy the Internet-age reality that once something is public, it’s nearly impossible to make it private again. Critics who believe government swung too far toward secrecy, particularly in the years immediately after 9/11, do not believe all information should be available. Rather, they argue that in too many cases decisions were made to hide information that was, in fact, important for the public to know. “We do not have a king or a ruling class that decides what our security policies should be,” said Steven Aftergood, who directs the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists. “Secrecy shortcircuits the whole democratic deliberative system and it’s fundamentally at odds with the kind of society we are all committed to.” Others argue that the government has performed with admirable openness during the war on terror, especially compared to other times of war, when outright censorship was routine. “What strikes me about the period after 9/11 is I think we’ve had an amazing flourishing of information and speech,” said John Yoo, a law professor at the University of California, Berkeley, who as a Department of Justice attorney helped develop the Bush administration’s program of aggressive interrogation techniques. Yoo also conceded, “You’re going to see individual programs where bureaucrats muck things up and make sometimes silly decisions. It’s inherent in bureaucracy.” Online maps offer an interesting case study because while millions of people use them every day to get from point A to point B, they also can be used by terrorists and other criminals. Evidence introduced at a New York terror trial showed that the defendants referenced

Strauss-Kahn case may be dropped
NEW YORK (AP) — The sexual assault charges that cost Dominique StraussKahn his job as head of the International Monetary Fund likely will be dropped by prosecutors, a person familiar with the case has said. The likely developments would bring a formal end to the case at Strauss-Kahn’s next court date on Tuesday, when prosecutors may ask a judge to dismiss the charges and might elaborate on their reasoning. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office probably will tell Strauss-Kahn’s accuser today that it won’t pursue the case, both because prosecutors don’t have evidence proving a forced sexual encounter and because she has a history of lies and inconsistencies that make it impossible to ask a jury to believe her, the person said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss matters not yet made public. The case upended French politics before it was riven by questions about his accuser’s credibility. It captured international attention as a seeming cauldron of sex, violence, power and politics: A promising French presidential contender, known in his homeland as “the Great Seducer,” accused of a brutal and contemptuous attack on an African immigrant who came to clean his plush hotel

Google’s mapping software during a foiled 2007 plot to blow up jet fuel tanks at John F. Kennedy International Airport. In an unrelated case, one member of a group that used small planes to fly drugs from Canada to the northern U.S. said he used Google Maps to scout hundreds of small airports for fences and cameras. Less clear is the rationale behind other decisions to hoard information that once was public — or information that is public in one form but not others. Some examples: — After 9/11, one concern was the nation’s network of underground pipelines, which if broken can fuel raging propane or natural gas fires. Though some utilities kept their own maps public for a while, access to the National Pipeline Mapping System was almost immediately restricted, and remains so today. In several post-9/11 accidents, first responders did not know about the existence or location of pipelines. In the case of a 2007 explosion in Mississippi that killed two and injured seven, federal safety investigators concluded that if local authorities had known the problem was a busted propane line, they would have evacuated the area so residents couldn’t do something to ignite the gathering gas cloud.

suite. The stakes were high for both Strauss-Kahn — who resigned his IMF post, spent nearly a week behind bars and then spent possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars on house arrest — and for DA Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who was handling the biggest case he has had during his 18 months in office. One of Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers, Benjamin Brafman, didn’t immediately respond to an email message Sunday, after the New York Post first reported prosecutors’ likely decision to drop the case. The DA’s office declined to comment. The hotel maid’s lawyer had predicted prosecutors would tell her today they were dropping the case. The attorney, Kenneth Thompson, told France’s RTL radio on Sunday that the woman, Nafissatou Diallo, “feels abandoned by the Manhattan District Attorney.” The questions raised about her credibility have made her feel “that she’s being investigated more than Strauss-Kahn,” he said. Then considered a promising Socialist candidate for the French presidency, StraussKahn, 62, was arrested in May. Diallo, 32, said the diplomat chased her down and forced her to perform oral sex when she arrived to clean his plush suite at the Sofitel hotel.

US Diplomat: Gadhafi’s whereabouts not yet known
VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama says Moammar Gadhafi must recognize his time is over in Libya, and a leading State Department diplomat says it’s “only a matter of time” before the besieged ruler is history. At the same time, Assistant Secretary of State Jeffrey Feltman acknowledged in an interview from Cairo this morning that U.S. officials do not know Gadhafi’s whereabouts. Amid celebrations among rebels and sympathizers on the streets of the capital city of Tripoli, Feltman said he thought it was “very clear that the rebels are winning.” “The rebels are taking over the city.They are clearly taking over the institutions,” Feltman said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” He also said U.S. officials have been told the rebels have seized control of state television. Asked whether he believes the al Qaida terrorist network will gain new footing during a power vacuum in Libya, Feltman said the first step in any post-Gadhafi setting is to “prevent some kind of cycle where people act out their own retributions,” as happened when Saddam Hussein fell in Iraq. “A lot of that sectarian mix that existed in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq doesn’t exisit here in Libya,” Feltman said. He also said that “the overwhelming vision that we are hearing” from people across Libya is that “they want a Libya that is moderate, that is secular.” In Washington today, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said officials were carefully assessing developments. “Clearly, there’s a fluid situation,” Whitman said. “We are monitoring the situation closely.” The Pentagon has provided well over 60 percent to 70 percent of the intelligence flights in support of NATO operations involving Libya. The U.S. led airstrikes before turning the mission over to NATO forces. A vacationing Obama said in a statement from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., Sunday night that Gadhafi should relinquish power to stop the violence and bloodshed of six months of civil war aimed at toppling his autocratic regime. “The future of Libya is now in the hands of the Libyan people,” Obama said. The U.S. has said that it would work closely with the rebels. After a day of dramatic developments, Obama said the situation in Libya had reached a “tipping point” and control of the capital was “slipping from the grasp of a tyrant.” Clashes were reported

US, European stocks rise in hope of Fed move
BRUSSELS (AP) — Stocks in Europe and the U.S. rallied today as investors set their hopes on the Federal Reserve to take action to revitalize the U.S. economy after a bout of panic selling last week. However, gold prices hit a new high of more than $1,890 an ounce earlier in the day, indicating that fears of a double-dip recession are still stalking markets. Brent crude, meanwhile, fell to near $107 a barrel as Libyan rebels’ capture of most of Tripoli boosted hopes the OPEC nation’s oil exports could resume soon. Britain’s FTSE 100 jumped 2.6 percent to 5,171, while Germany’s DAX rose 1.9 percent to 5,585. France’s CAC 40 gained 3.1 percent to 3,111. After a steep sell-off on Friday, Wall Street also opened higher, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average up 1.5 percent at 10,983 and the broader S&P 500 1.7 percent higher at 1,142. Analysts warned that markets would likely stay volatile in the coming weeks as worries remain about the U.S. and global economies as well as bank funding amid the eurozone debt troubles. The improved mood in Europe and the U.S. followed a jittery day of trading in Asia, where most markets closed in the red. Throughout the week, investors will be looking with anticipation to a speech Friday by U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke at a retreat in Wyoming. The Fed pledged earlier this month to keep interest rates super-low through

early today near Gadhafi’s compound in Tripoli when tanks rolled out and opened fire on rebels trying to storm the complex. Libyan rebels who raced into Tripoli on Sunday met little resistance as Gadhafi’s defenders melted away and his 42-year authoritarian rule quickly crumbled. Euphoric fighters celebrated with residents of the capital in Green Square, the symbolic heart of the fading regime. Gadhafi’s whereabouts were unknown, though state TV broadcast his bitter pleas for Libyans to defend his regime. Opposition fighters captured his son and one-time heir apparent, Seif al-Islam, who along with his father faces charges of crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands. Another son was in contact with rebels about surrendering, the opposition said.

Jerry Lewis: Saving lives through MDA was honor

mid-2013. Investors wonder whether Bernanke will announce, or at least preview, further steps to help the economy, including a third round of bond purchases known as quantitative easing. “Given the absence of deflation risk, we do not expect him to announce QE3,” analysts at UniCredit in Milan wrote in a note, referring to a new round of bond buying. “But he is likely to reiterate that the Fed is prepared to ease monetary policy further if needed.”

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jerry Lewis said Saturday that his years of service to the Muscular Dystrophy Association helped make him a star, but he didn’t provide details on his recent departure as the group’s national chairman. In his first public appearance since the breakup, Lewis accepted a lifetime achievement award from the Nevada Broadcasters Association, saying that he made his reputation in show business by saving lives. “I made my reputation in this business caring for what I did,” said Lewis, who donned a red foam clown nose at one point during his speech in front of politicians and other entertainers. “For someone who has an ego like I have, humility doesn’t come that easy.” Lewis hinted during his brief speech that he could not explain why he is no longer the national chairman of the MDA after 45 years. He will also no longer host the group’s annual Labor Day weekend telethon. Lewis said he was humbled to hear several congressmen and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval describe watching Lewis host the MDA’s annual Labor Day weekend telethon every year throughout their childhoods. “It was as meaningful tonight as ever,” the 85-yearold said of the recognition. “And I don’t think I can go into the why of that.”
