Wind farm opens doors to a new energy in Ohio

Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869
PAYNE — The EDP Renewables North America Wind Farm opened its doors Wednesday; the international company could not be happier about beginning operations. “We are happy to show that wind works,” said Chief Executive Officer Gabriel Alonso. “This is another testament that wind works. We are not polluting anything, we are not destructing anything — we are not burning a fuel to turn into electricity. We are just taking advantage of something that is a natural resource and making a benefit out of it.” EDP’s Timber Road II Wind Farm is a 99-megawatt facility outside Payne.

Jobs’ death the end of an era
By JORDAN ROBERTSON The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — Steve Jobs saw the future and led the world to it. He moved technology from garages to pockets, took entertainment from discs to bytes and turned gadgets into extensions of the people who use them. Jobs, who founded and ran Apple, told us what we needed before we wanted it. “To some people, this is like Elvis Presley or John Lennon. It’s a change in our times. It’s the end of an era,” said Scott Robbins, 34, a barber and an Apple fan. “It’s like the end of the innovators.” Apple announced his death without giving a specific cause. He died peacefully on Wednesday, according to a statement from family members who were present. He was 56. “Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives,” Apple’s board said in
a statement. “The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.” President Barack Obama said in a statement that Jobs “exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity.” “Steve was among the greatest of American innovators — brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world and talented enough to do it,” he said. Jobs had battled cancer in 2004 and underwent a liver transplant in 2009 after taking a leave of absence for unspecified health problems. He took another leave of absence in January — his third since his health problems began — and resigned in August. Jobs became Apple’s chairman and handed the CEO job over to his hand-picked successor, Tim Cook. Outside Apple’s Cupertino headquarters, three flags — an American flag, a California state flag and an Apple flag — were flying at half-staff late See JOBS, page 2

For The Record
Walt Disney. Jobs died as Walt Disney Co.’s largest shareholder, a by-product of his decision to sell computer animation studio Pixar in 2006. Perhaps most influentially, Jobs in 2001 launched the iPod, which offered “1,000 songs in your pocket.” Over the next 10 years, its white earphones and thumb-dial control seemed to become more ubiquitous than the wristwatch. In 2007 came the touch-screen iPhone, joined a year later by Apple’s App Store, where developers could sell iPhone “apps” which made the phone a device not just for making calls but also for managing money, editing photos, playing games and social networking. And in 2010, Jobs introduced the iPad, a tablet-sized, all-touch computer that took off even though market analysts said no one really needed one. By 2011, Apple had become the second-largest company of any kind in the United States by market value. In August, it briefly surpassed Exxon Mobil as the most valuable company. When Jobs spoke at Apple presentations, almost always in faded blue jeans, sneakers and a black mock turtleneck, legions of Apple acolytes listened to every word. He often boasted about Apple successes, then coyly added a coda — “one more thing” — before introducing its latest ambitious idea. Steven Paul Jobs was born Feb. 24, 1955, in San Francisco to Joanne Simpson, then an unmarried graduate student, and Abdulfattah Jandali, a student from Syria. Simpson gave Jobs up for adoption, though she married Jandali and a few years later had a second child with him, Mona Simpson, who became a novelist. Steven was adopted by Clara and Paul Jobs of Los Altos, California, a working-class couple who nurtured his early interest in electronics. He saw his first computer terminal at NASA’s Ames Research Center when he was around 11 and landed a summer job at Hewlett-Packard before he had finished high school. Jobs enrolled in Reed College in Portland, Ore., in 1972 but dropped out after six months. When he returned to California in 1974, Jobs worked for video game maker Atari and attended meetings of the Homebrew Computer Club — a group of computer hobbyists — with Steve Wozniak, a high school friend who was a few years older. Wozniak’s homemade computer drew attention from other enthusiasts, but Jobs saw its potential far beyond the geeky hobbyists of the time. The pair started Apple Computer Inc. in Jobs’ parents’ garage in 1976. According to Wozniak, Jobs suggested the name after visiting an “apple orchard” that Wozniak said was actually a commune. Their first creation was the Apple I — essentially, the guts of a computer without a case, keyboard or monitor. The Apple II, which hit the market in 1977, was their first machine for the masses. It became so popular that Jobs was worth $100 million by age 25. He got into two other companies: Next, a computer maker, and Pixar, a computer-animation studio that he bought from George Lucas for $10 million. Pixar, ultimately the more successful venture, seemed at first a bottomless money pit. Then in 1995 came “Toy Story,” the first computer-animated full-length feature. Jobs used its success to negotiate a sweeter deal with Disney for Pixar’s next two films, “A Bug’s Life” and “Toy Story 2.” Jobs sold Pixar to The Walt Disney Co. for $7.4 billion in stock in a deal that got him a seat on Disney’s board and 138 million shares of stock that accounted for most of his fortune. Forbes magazine estimated Jobs was worth $7 billion in a survey last month. Apple’s first new product under his direction, the brightly colored, plastic iMac, launched in 1998 and sold about 2 million in its first year. Apple returned to profitability that year. Jobs dropped the “interim” from his title in 2000. Jobs is survived by his biological mother; his sister Mona Simpson; Lisa Brennan-Jobs, his daughter with Brennan; wife Laurene, and their three children, Erin, Reed and Eve.
(Continued from page 1) Wednesday. The news Apple fans and shareholders had been dreading came the day after Apple unveiled its latest iPhone, a device that got a lukewarm reception. Perhaps, there would have been more excitement had Jobs been well enough to show it off with his trademark theatrics. Jobs started Apple with a high school friend in a Silicon Valley garage in 1976, was forced out a decade later and returned in 1997 to rescue the company. During his second stint, it grew into the most valuable technology company in the world with a market value of $351 billion. Almost all that wealth has been created since Jobs’ return. Cultivating Apple’s countercultural sensibility and a minimalist design ethic, Jobs rolled out one sensational product after another, even in the face of the late-2000s recession and his own failing health. He helped change computers from a geeky hobbyist’s obsession to a necessity of modern life at work and home, and in the process he upended not just personal technology but the cellphone and music industries. For transformation of American industry, he has few rivals. He has long been linked to his personal computer-age contemporary, Bill Gates, and has drawn comparisons to other creative geniuses such as

Prosecutors show lineup of Jackson doctor’s drugs
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The bottles of medicine lined up in two jagged rows on the edge of the prosecution table at the end of the sixth day of the trial against the doctor charged in connection with Michael Jackson’s death. After days of hearing about the drugs — propofol, lidocaine, lorazepam and others — there they were, in the faces of the jurors who will decide the fate of Dr. Conrad Murray. The Houston-based cardiologist has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter. Prosecutors will work today to begin explaining the interaction between the drugs to the panel of seven men and five women and how they led to the pop superstar’s death. Deputy District Attorney David Walgren told a judge he would call a toxicology expert and a coroner’s investigator to testify today. It took Walgren more than an hour to arrange and explain the bottles with the help of a coroner’s investigator, pulling many of the bottles from a bag marked “Baby Essentials.” The drug display came a couple hours after Walgren played a more than four-minute recording of a rambling,
slurring Jackson found on Murray’s cell phone just six weeks before the singer died in June 2009. In the call, Jackson is heard telling Murray he planned to use proceeds from his comeback concerts to build a world-class children’s hospital. After saying he hoped the patients would be spared some of the pain of his own life, Jackson’s voice is heard at the end of the recording, mumbling ominously, “I am asleep.” Authorities contend a combination of the drugs, the anesthetic propofol and other sedatives, killed Jackson after

Ohio association bans school from postseason play
PARMA (AP) — An Ohio barber says he got more than a tip from one longtime customer, whose gun accidentally discharged and left a bullet in the hair cutter’s backside. Barber Kurt Voelkel in the Cleveland suburb of Parma says the man was adjusting his clothing and sitting down on Sept. 29 when a 9 mm handgun fell from his holster, struck the ground and went off. WJW-TV reports a bullet passed through the chair where Voelkel was sitting and also went through his wallet before coming to rest deep in his buttocks. He spent more than two hours being treated at a hospital, where doctors decided to leave the slug where it is, for now. Voelkel decided not to file charges against the customer, who’s covering his medical needs.
Barber accidentally takes bullet in backside
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s sanctioning body for high school sports has banned Canal Winchester Harvest Prep from its tournaments in football, girls basketball and boys basketball for the next two academic years for playing ineligible players. Among other sanctions, the Ohio High School Athletic Association also ruled that none of the school’s sports teams could play in OHSAA postseason events in 2011-12. Harvest Prep must also forfeit tournament games in boys basketball from a year ago along with three football games from last season. School Superintendent the Rev. Gary Johnston says the school has agreed to violations and jointly signed an agreement on penalties. He says Harvest Prep is proud of its coaches, athletes and administrators and will remain compliant with OSHAA regulations.
Most Ohio union workers affected by insurance rule
By JULIE CARR SMYTH AP Statehouse Correspondent COLUMBUS — Employees of more than 550 school districts, townships and other government units across Ohio will see their share of health care costs rise if voters approve a collective bargaining law this fall, state data show. Widespread impact of the provision is fueling arguments on both sides. Supporters say having employees pay a bigger share of their health care costs will bring them in closer alignment with private sector workers and help balance local budgets. Opponents say the data validate that the union-limiting bill will hurt tens of thousands of average workers around the state, who will be required by the law to spend more on benefits. An Associated Press review of data kept by the State Employment Relations Board finds that state workers and many county and healthdistrict employees already pay more on average than the 15 percent share that will be required under the law. About 77,000 of Ohio’s 360,000 unionized government workers are in state and county government. Unionized township and fire district employees pay the lowest percentages toward health insurance on average, between 2.2 percent for employees of the smallest townships and 5.6 percent, the board’s data show. That means those employees would see the biggest jump in costs in their health care premiums if November’s Issue 2 passes. School district employees — not only teachers, but janitors, bus drivers, cooks and others — are contributing 9.5 percent toward individual health insurance coverage and 11 percent toward family coverage on average, data show. City employees’ contributions average around 8 percent, while college and university employees’ contributions
MTR coal mining projects. The new 2011 version of “Policy and Practice” takes a look at the MTR-related financing practices of Bank of America, CitiBank, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, GE Capital, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, PNC, UBS and Wells Fargo. What did they find? Since January 2010, the 10 banks reviewed have provided upwards of $2.5 billion in loans and bonds to companies practicing MTR. While some of the banks—Chase, Wells Fargo, PNC, UBS, and Credit Suisse—adopted policies limiting their financing of MTR, few actually pulled funding in place from any such activities upon adopting such policies. Citibank, despite announcing publicly in 2009 that it would limit its involvement in MTR, doubled its investments in the business in 2010. RAN and the Sierra Club are also keeping a close eye on UBS which, soon after stating that it “needs to be satisfied that the client is committed to reduce over time its exposure to [MTR],” went ahead and acted as a paid advisor on the merger of Massey Energy, which operated the West Virginia mine where 29 men died last year, and Alpha Natural Resources. This merger created the largest single MTR company in the country, now responsible for some 25 percent of coal production from MTR mines. The report card grades each bank based on its current position and practice regarding MTR investments, and calls on the banks to strengthen their policies and cease their financial support for coal companies engaging in MTR. “The ‘best practice’... is a clear exclusion policy on commercial lending and investment banking services for all coal companies who practice mountaintop removal coal extraction,” says RAN. RAN and the Sierra Club hope that by exposing the impact these banks are having on the environment through their financing programs, they can help alert the public and policymakers to the need to outlaw MTR coal mining altogether.
Firing of teacher over Bible on his desk upheld Judge says no ‘circus’ for MOUNT VERNON (AP) — A judge has upheld the firing of a central Ohio public Ohio corruption trial
school science teacher accused of preaching religious beliefs in class and of keeping a Bible on his desk. Knox County Common Pleas Judge Otho Eyster said in Wednesday’s ruling he found clear and convincing evidence that the Mount Vernon school board was right in dismissing John Freshwater.

average about 13 percent. Ohio Education Association spokeswoman Michele Prater said the averages mask a trend toward unions agreeing to pay larger shares of their health care and pension costs around the state, often alongside a pay cut or freeze. In other words, half of Ohio’s 196,000 school district employees are already paying above the average for their sector, and half less. Prater pointed to suburban Columbus’ Southwestern Schools, where employees contribute between 28 percent to 35 percent toward health care and make $38,000 a year on average. Licking Valley Local Schools employees pay nearly 36 percent toward health insurance and make $31,000 a year on average, she said. The health care provision of Senate Bill 5, signed by Gov. John Kasich in March, has been characterized in statewide advertising by Building a Better Ohio, the campaign defending the sweeping law, as a nod to basic fairness. The campaign’s commercial also includes a reference to the bill’s requirement that union workers will have to pay at least 10 percent toward their pensions. Jason Mauk, a spokesman for the “vote yes” campaign, said private sector employees are already paying more than 15 percent toward their health care on average. “The disparity between the public and private sectors, particularly in the area of health care, is financially unsustainable,” he said. “You have some government employees in Ohio who pay nothing for their health care and you have private sector employees who are paying on average between 25 and 31 percent. That’s an issue of fairness, and certainly an issue of affordability.” Melissa Fazekas, a spokeswoman for We Are Ohio, the campaign seeking to repeal Senate Bill 5, said health insurance contributions are just one small part of a voluminous, dangerous bill.
E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: I understand that mountaintop removal as a way of coal mining is incredibly destructive. Didn’t a report come out recently that named major banks that were funding this activity? — Seth Jergens, New York, NY Yes it’s true that many major banks invest in companies that engage in the environmentally destructive practice of mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining, whereby the tops of mountains are removed by explosives to expose thin seams of recoverable coal. The wasted earth and other materials are either put back onto the mountain top in an approximation of their original contours, wreaking havoc on local ecosystems and biodiversity, or dumped into neighboring valleys, polluting lakes and streams and jeopardizing water quality for humans and wildlife. According to the non-profit Rainforest Action Network (RAN), this dumping—especially throughout Appalachia where MTR is most prevalent—“undermines the objectives and requirements of the Clean Water Act.” The group adds that some 2,000 miles of streams have already been buried or contaminated in the region. “The mining destroys Appalachian communities, the health of coalfield residents and any hope for positive economic growth.” This past April, RAN teamed up for the second year in a row with another leading non-profit green group concerned about MTR, the Sierra Club, in publishing a “report card” reviewing 10 of the world’s largest banks in regard to their financing of

AKRON (AP) — A defense lawyer has told a judge that a high-profile public corruption trial could generate a “media circus” in northeast Ohio and should be moved elsewhere. U.S. District Court Judge Sara Lioi shot back during Wednesday’s hearing in Akron that she won’t allow a circus atmosphere for the trial of former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora and a co-defendant. The Plain Dealer of Cleveland reports
Lioi said she’d make a decision later this month on the request to try the case elsewhere. Dimora also is a former chairman of the Cuyahoga County Democratic party in Cleveland. He has pleaded not guilty to racketeering, bribery and other charges. The government says he took bribes in exchange for steering county contracts. The trial is scheduled for January.

Dems add millionaire tax to Obama’s jobs bill
BY STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press WASHINGTON — Struggling to deliver the big jobs package proposed by President Barack Obama, Senate Democrats are using the issue to force Republican senators to vote on tax increases for millionaires, picking up on a White House theme that the nation’s wealthiest Americans aren’t paying their fair share. Senate Democrats said Wednesday they were changing Obama’s jobs package to add a 5.6 percent tax on income above $1 million, a proposal that is sure to be blocked by Republicans. The $447 billion package still includes Obama’s proposals to cut payroll taxes and provide money for teachers, firefighters, the unemployed and infrastructure. The tax on millionaires is expected to pay for the package, so it wouldn’t add to the budget deficit. Democrats are banking on Republicans to oppose both the higher taxes on milliondollar earners and the president’s call for new spending aimed at reducing joblessness, leaving them open to a charge of protecting the wealthy at the expense of the unemployed. “Republicans will be hard pressed to explain why they allowed teachers and firefighters to be laid off, rather than have millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “Republicans will struggle to defend putting off repairs to crumbling schools in order to protect tax breaks for the wealthiest 1 percent of America. This is the contrast that will be on display in the Senate next week.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he plans to bring the bill up for a vote in the Senate next week, though without Republican support, it won’t get the 60 votes needed to advance. Republican leaders said they won’t support tax increases, even on the wealthy, because they would hurt an already weak economy. “I understand our Democrat friends want to jettison entire parts of the bill altogether — not to make it more effective at growing jobs, not to grow bipartisan support,” said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. “No, they want to overhaul the bill to sharpen its political edge.” The new 5.6 percent tax would be applied to adjusted gross income above $1 million — that’s income before itemized deductions are subtracted — including income from capital gains and dividends. The top tax rate on earned income is currently 35 percent. The top capital gains tax rate is 15 percent. Reid initially announced Wednesday afternoon that he was changing Obama’s jobs package to add a new 5 percent tax on income above $1 million, starting Jan. 1. That
IT WAS NEWS THEN
One Year Ago • Monday was a day of many milestones for Habitat for Humanity. The Jeremy Bishop family and Putnam County are not only the proud owners of the 3,000th Habitat for Humanity Home but also celebrated the dedication on World Habitat Day 2010. A large crowd gathered to watch as the home built at 641 S. Oak St. in Ottawa was dedicated as the “Faith House.” 25 Years Ago — 1986 • Northwest Technical College, Archbold, announced that Terry Pohlman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Pohlman of Delphos, has been chosen as a “President’s Guide” for 198687. President’s Guides are a select group of students who represent the college at various campus events. • No. 3-rated Archbold upended St. John’s 15-1, 15-4 in volleyball action Saturday. Bev Fisher led the Jays in going three-for-four in serving, two points, three-for-three hits and one block. Cyndi Kortokrax was three-for-four in serving, one point, two-for-three hits and two blocks. • Tom and Nancy Brickner and their son Matt, were among the 363 people attending the Delphos Senior Citizens Center’s third annual pancake and sausage breakfast Sunday at the American Legion Hall. Winners of the raffle were Urban Kurber, Marcella Shumaker and Imogene Rupert, all of Delphos, and Treva Plescher of Cloverdale. 50 Years Ago — 1936 • Whitey Ford’s masterful two-hit pitching, blended with a pair of solo homers and some eye-popping defensive play summed up the New York Yankees’ 2-0 opening game World Series victory over the Cincinnati Reds. “Just say Mr. Ford and Mr. Boyer,” Yankee Manager Ralph Houk remarked after the game. “And of course, those two home runs.” • Russell Byer, a Van Wert County flying farmer, even has an air-minded pet. Byer took off from his farm Sunday accompanied by two other people. While they were flying over Van Wert, Byer felt a claw on his trouser leg. Byer found Sambo, the family cat, with a kitten in her mouth. Upon landing, they discovered Sambo’s kitten had a baby brother under the seat. • Fort Jennings Musketeers piled up four runs in the early innings, and held their margin for the balance of the game to win a close decision from Ottoville 4 to 3. The Muskies scored twice in the second without a hit, on a walk, threebase error and an infield error. Two more runs came across the plate in the third on Gerdeman’s single and two more Ottoville errors. 75 Years Ago — 1936 • The 1936 World Series ended in a slaughter Tuesday when the New York Yankees put their fellow townsmen, the Giants, out of the running to the tune of 13 to 5 for the game and 4 to 2 for the series. The Yanks led through most of the game but went into the ninth with only a one-run margin, 6 to 5. Then they went on a wild rampage and scored seven runs on five hits coupled with walks and an error. • A group of Delphos ladies will be in attendance at a Democratic dinner to be served at the Barr Hotel in Lima this evening. The dinner compliments Emma Guffy Miller, national committeewoman from Pennsylvania. Present from Delphos will be Mrs. G. K. Miller, Mrs. Otto G. Lang, Mrs. Richard Ricker, Mrs. C. E. Savage, Mrs. J. E. Moots, Mrs. Fred Geier, Mrs. Ted Stallkamp and Mrs. Ralph Lindemann. • Two Delphos young men were honored by being chosen to fill offices at Giffin College in Van Wert. Carl Erickson was elected president of the Junior class and John Miller was chosen from the general student body to serve as publicity manager.
More layoffs, weak job market
WASHINGTON (AP) — Two days before the government’s much-anticipated jobs report, a snapshot of employment trends in the service sector flashed an ominous sign. Hotels, restaurants, banks and other service companies, which employ 90 percent of Americans, reduced the size of their work forces in September, according to a survey of purchasing managers conducted by the Institute of Supply Management. The Labor Department’s monthly jobs report will be released Friday. The last time it showed a net loss of jobs was in September 2010 — one month after the ISM’s monthly survey signaled the same trend. The ISM said Wednesday that its hiring index fell below 50 for the first time since August 2010. A reading below 50 suggests companies laid off workers, while a reading above 50 suggests they added jobs. The economy lost jobs for two straight months the last time the ISM’s gauge fell below 50. The government’s August jobs report showed no net gain in hiring. Economists forecast the economy added 56,000 jobs in September. The service industry did expand in September for the 22nd straight month, according to the trade group’s survey. But growth was slightly slower than the previous month. Payroll processor ADP Wednesday offered a slightly more positive outlook on job growth in September. It said private companies added 91,000 jobs last month, essentially the same level of job growth as August. The ADP numbers haven’t been consistent with the government’s figures on job growth. They also don’t measure government hiring. Economists said the two reports confirmed other data that show the economy is growing too slowly to lower the unemployment rate, which is likely to stay at 9.1 percent for a third straight month. “The economy continued to limp along in September but there is no suggestion in the data thus far that the economy is slipping into recession,” said John Ryding, an economist at RDQ Economics, in a note to clients. Hotels, restaurants and financial service firms were among those companies that saw less business in September. Meager pay increases and higher food and gas prices have forced many Americans to spend more carefully. There were some positive signs in the ISM report. New orders rose to their highest level since May, and order backlogs grew for the first time in four months. Growth wasn’t broad-based in September. Nine sectors reported expansion, including utilities, transportation and warehousing, health care, and retail. Eight sectors said they contracted, including educational services, real estate, hotels and restaurants, and financial services. Many respondents to the survey said that uncertainty about the future direction of the economy was weighing on their business.
GOP voters to chose between experience and insurgence
By KASIE HUNT Associated Press WASHINGTON — The GOP presidential field apparently set, Republican primary voters are likely facing a choice between an experienced, establishment candidate in Mitt Romney and an insurgent presidential campaign novice in Rick Perry. With three months until voting begins, that’s the dynamic that’s starting to emerge now that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie have said they won’t run for president in 2012. Their decisions — announced over the past two days — mean it’s all but certain that the Republican nominee will come from the current crop of candidates despite earlier hunger within the party for more options. For now at least, the race is focused on Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who lost the Republican nomination in 2008 and in recent days has started to shore up support among longtime party leaders, and Perry, the Texas governor who has emerged as the top challenger despite a rocky few weeks that have stoked concerns among GOP elders about whether he’s ready to take on President Barack Obama. Romney has a strong case to make. He has national name recognition and a topnotch national campaign staff. He has a national fundraising network. His weaknesses already have been vetted and he has been able to dispatch questions about them. He’s built a strong campaign in New Hampshire and is quietly organizing in Iowa, where he learned from the mistakes he made last time and is working to keep expectations low. He’s racking up endorsements in key states like Florida. And while he’s had trouble winning over the restless conservative base, he can argue that his even-keeled campaign can take its wellhoned economic message and use it to beat Obama. But what Romney hasn’t shown is that he can gain from Perry’s stumbles. The latest Washington Post-ABC news poll of Republicans found Romney’s popularity unchanged at 25 percent. Perry dropped to 16 percent from a previous survey, tied with Cain, the former pizza executive who has surged in
proposal, however, would have raised taxes a year ahead of Obama’s schedule. The president has said raising taxes during a weak economy is not a good idea and, campaigning for his jobs bill in Cincinnati last month, he made a point of noting that his tax increases would not kick in until 2013. “Nobody is talking about raising taxes right now,” he said. Late Wednesday, Reid’s office announced that the package had been changed to impose a 5.6 percent tax increase on income above $1 million, starting in 2013. Democratic leaders in Congress point to recent polls showing support for increasing taxes on the wealthy. A Washington Post-ABC News released this week said 75 percent of respondents supported raising taxes on Americans with incomes over $1 million a year. That same poll found that 52 percent of respondents supported Obama’s jobs package, and 36 percent opposed it. Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, recalled that previous proposals to raise taxes on millionaires had failed, with some Democrats joining Republicans in opposition. “Some of my Democrat colleagues were right to reject a similar proposal when they controlled both chambers of Congress,” Hatch said. “Given the weak state of our economy, they’d be wise to reject it again.”
Obama quiet about 10 years of war
By BEN FELLER AP White House Correspondent WASHINGTON — A decade of war will pass quietly at the White House this week. President Barack Obama plans no public events Friday to mark a moment the nation never really expected: 10 years of war in Afghanistan. Out of sight and off the minds of millions of Americans, the war is the most prolonged conflict this country has been engaged in since Vietnam. Obama has gone so far as to declare it “the longest war in American history.” The lack of attention to the 10-year milestone is driven in part by White House thinking that Obama has already helped lead a national reflection on a decade of costly sacrifice and battle. He did that on the recent anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, the day when many people feel the war unforgettably began. Yet Obama’s handling of the new war milestone also underscores his interest in sticking to an economic message without distraction. Jobs, not war, matter most right now. What’s more, in military terms, analysts say a 10-year anniversary holds little significance compared with other markers. The main one is the end-of-2014 deadline Obama has set for withdrawal of most U.S. forces, along with the question of whether the United States will be able to leave Afghanistan stable enough politically to prevent a perilous collapse. It was on Oct. 7, 2001, that the United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan, seeking to end the rule of radical Islamic Taliban and its ability to provide haven to the alQaida terrorists who launched the unprecedented terrorist assault on Sept. 11. At the time, President George W. Bush said to the country, “In the months ahead, our patience will be one of our strengths.” The nation, under Bush and Obama, saw its patience tested much longer than that. The American role in the
recent weeks. “Nobody wants to put a candidate forward just because they happen to be the most electable,” veteran campaign consultant Terry Nelson said. Perry announced Tuesday that he had raised more than $17 million in the first six weeks of his presidential bid. He has a third-party SuperPAC to raise outside funds, so he potentially could match a similar effort by Romney’s team. On Tuesday, he earned the support of a prominent Christie backer in Iowa. And much of his support comes from the tea party Republicans — a group in part defined by their opposition to establishment politics — who are driving Republican enthusiasm in 2012. An August AP-GfK poll showed 74 percent of tea party backers viewed Perry positively. But because he’s the new guy, most voters are still learning who Perry is. His inexperience has shone through, and it’s already driving doubts about his candidacy and left him to prove to both voters and to party insiders that he’s ready to be president.
war is now on pace to last at least 13 years. Put together, more than 2 million troops have been sent to Afghanistan and the war in Iraq, which began in 2003, including hundreds of thousands of troops who have served more than one tour. Nearly 4,500 U.S. troops have died in Iraq and about 1,700 in Afghanistan. Tens of thousands more have been wounded. Obama moved to end the war in Iraq but initially expanded the one in Afghanistan, trying to regain control of the conflict he saw as central to American security. His focus was clear in June when he announced that, as promised, troops would begin withdrawing in July and that 33,000 troops will be home by next summer. It was time to focus on home, he said. Still, almost 70,000 troops will remain in a volatile country after that as the United States continues its withdrawal and its shift of security control to Afghan forces through 2014.

The National Basketball Association is nearing D-Day for the 2011-12 season, at least the early part of the regular season. I don’t really know what the problem is — it’s he said, he said, they said, so and so added — and you don’t know which side to believe (or even how much to believe). The players were quoted as being willing to give back so and so amount but no further, while the owners were willing to give this, that and the other thing up. Really, though, this comes down to moolah — and a lot of it. I am not sure that in this day and age — with the economy still in the doldrums, with so many other things that young people especially can do and such — that the NBA will be able to survive ANY work stoppage for any length of time. After all, 2010-11 was by all accounts one of the most successful in the league’s history. Ratings skyrocketed, fan attendance was up everywhere and interest — good and bad, even good old-fashioned hate towards certain players — is booming. So are these “men” kidding me? Do you NOT realize what times we are living in? I don’t think anyone can really sympathize with either side. Fans are a forgiving sort — check out the National Football League and

The fans WILL NOT come back this time, at least the casual fans and even the semi-interested ones. The diehards will — likely — but who knows at this stage. The NBA has always seemed to have its lapses and resurgences: when it seemed to be on the verge of collapse in the late 1970s, for example, along came Magic Johnson and Larry Bird and, later, Michael Jordan. When those stars hung up their sneakers, you had The Glare, Kevin Garnett; Kobe Bryant; The Big Fundamental, Tim Duncan; The Shaqmeister; Dirk Nowitski; and other stars that are now nearing the end of the line. Now, you have the emergence of King James, Kevin Durant, John Wall and others that are more than capable of carrying the NBA into the 2020s.
However, not if these two knuckleheaded sides can’t agree on a deal. Fellas, there’s a lot of money to go around. This is what I suggest to resolve this issue: set down around a table, just a couple on each side that are true representatives of each’s concerns and complaints, and do this out of the media glare. Don’t posture, blubber or carry on to the media; let there be a media blackout if you will. Players, open up your “books” and owners, do the same. Put all the cards on the table. I guarantee that if they can get away from all the hubbub and the “men-willbe-men” approach, they will realize they are all businessmen in a way — Lebron, Kobe, etc., are as much businessmen as the owners — and making money is for the benefit of all of them. They ARE in this thing together and if one side sinks, both do. I’ll write this: at least you don’t have some truly knuckleheaded statements that came out of earlier negotiations such as “we’re fighting for our lives here” (Patrick Ewing) — oh, you mean you might not be able to afford that sixth Lamborghini, so you’ll have to settle for five? – or “I have to feed my family” (Latrell Sprewell) — I guess $10 million doesn’t go as far these days as it used to!

The Herald — 7
The Associated Press Cardinals 5, Phillies 3 ST. LOUIS — David Freese joked that he probably had accumulated 20 strikeouts against various Phillies aces. Easy to poke fun at yourself after a breakout game that toppled Cardinals playoff nemesis Roy Oswalt and forced a deciding fifth game against Philadelphia. Freese became a hometown hero on Wednesday night with a home run, double and four RBIs to lead St. Louis to a 5-3 victory over the Phillies. Freese was 2-for-12 with one RBI over the first three games of the series. The Phillies were dispatched in order by Jason Motte in the ninth, with centerfielder Jon Jay making a sliding catch on Placido Polanco’s soft fly for the final out. Game 5 on Friday night will be a rematch of aces: 19-game winner Roy Halladay against Chris Carpenter, the 2005 NL Cy Young winner who won 10 of his last 12 decisions to finish 11-9 this season. Matt Holliday had a hit and scored twice in his first playoff start and expects to be ready for Game 5. An omen, perhaps, was the unusual sight of a squirrel dashing across the plate right after Oswalt threw a pitch for a ball in the fifth. Oswalt argued, unsuccessfully, that he had been distracted. Oswalt had been 5-0 with a 3.25 ERA in 10 previous postseason starts, the biggest one closing out old Busch Stadium and the Cardinals in 2005 to get Houston to its first World Series. Freese’s 2-run double down the third-base line in the fourth put St. Louis up 3-2. His 2-run homer to straightaway center in the sixth whipped the crowd into a towelwaving frenzy. Albert Pujols was hitless in four at-bats in what could have been his final home game with the Cardinals. He received thunderous cheers every trip to the plate from a standing-room crowd of 47,071, the second-largest at 6-year-old Busch Stadium. Pujols made his presence known on defense, catching Chase Utley going for an extra base in the sixth. Utley drew a leadoff walk and kept running on Hunter Pence’s grounder to short but Pujols alertly jumped off first base to catch the throw and made a sharp relay to third for the out. Edwin Jackson recovered from a rocky beginning to win his first playoff start. After giving up two runs on his first five pitches, he wound up throwing six solid innings.
Five pitches into the game, the Phillies had a 2-0 lead with an assist from the late-afternoon playing conditions. Jay, standing in bright sunshine while shadows enveloped most of the field, took one step in on leadoff man Jimmy Rollins’ drive on the first pitch of the game and retreated too late for a ball just over his glove that bounced over the wall for a ground-rule double. Utley tripled just inside the first-base line three pitches later and Pence lined an RBI single on the next pitch. The Phillies’ other run came on a wild pitch by Fernando Salas in the eighth. Diamondbacks 10, Brewers 6 PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks came home and created a new way to celebrate big hits. Now that “The Snake” has started rolling, there may be no stopping it. Changing the complexion of the NL division series with a powerful display, the Diamondbacks hit another grand slam among their team-record four homers to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 10-6 Wednesday night and force Game 5. Outgunned by Milwaukee’s “Beast Mode” in the series’ first two games, the Diamondbacks came up with “The Snake” after returning to the desert in an 0-2 hole. The brainchild of catcher Miguel Montero, the hand gesture — a cupped right hand that makes a striking motion — has taken over the series as Arizona has bashed its way toward what may be its greatest comeback in a season filled with them. A day after rolling over the Brewers 8-1, the Diamondbacks struck quickly and often in Game 4, scoring five runs in the first inning off Randy Wolf. Ryan Roberts had the big blow with a grand slam, making the Diamondbacks the second team — with the 1977 Dodgers — to hit grand slams in consecutive playoff games. After hitting grand slams in their final two home games of the regular season, it made Arizona the first team in major-league history to hit grand slams in four straight home games (regular and postseason), according to STATS LLC and the SABR home run log. Chris Young added the first of his two homers in the next at-bat, giving the Diamondbacks backto-back homers for the first time in their postseason history. Aaron Hill had a solo shot in the sixth inning, Young a 2-run shot in the seventh and Arizona had 13 hits to send the series back to Milwaukee for the decisive game Friday. It will be a rematch of Game 1 between 21-game winner Ian Kennedy of the Diamondbacks and fellow right-hander Yovani Gallardo. Written off by many after being outscored 13-5 in the first two games, baseball’s best rally team — 48 comeback wins during the regular season — has put itself in position to become just the eighth team overall to win a bestof-5 series after trailing 0-2. Pinch-hitter Collin Cowgill added a 2-run single in the third and Arizona’s bullpen held on after a less-than-crisp outing by starter Joe Saunders to put the toughto-keep-down Diamondbacks in position to make history. Wolf, 0-2 with a 6.08 ERA in two starts against Arizona during the regular season, lasted just two more innings after allowing seven runs on eight hits. Carlos Gomez hit a 2-run homer off David Hernandez in the eighth to cut Arizona’s lead to 10-6 but it was too late for the Brewers.

From where have all the mushrooms come?
By Glen Arnold, Ag educator, OSU Extension, Putnam County September rains, totaling more than six inches, have provided an abundant crop of mushrooms growing in our yards and fields. White mushrooms are evident in many lawns and stinkhorn mushrooms are appearing in mulched areas around houses. Although mushrooms may seem to appear out of nowhere, this is not true. A mushroom is only a small part of a large fungus, an organism that mostly lives underground. Even when there is no mushroom visible above ground, the fungus is living and growing in the soil. Mushrooms are an important part of the ecosystem, breaking down dead plant matter and making the nutrients available for new plants to use. Imagine an underground mushroom fungus as a vast web of very tiny threads weaving through the soil, breaking down organic matter for its food. If you dig through the soil, you may not see the fungus at all, since the threads are microscopic, or virtually invisible without the aid of a microscope. A mushroom grows when the fungus threads begin to grow together and form a large structure that sticks up out of the ground. Mushrooms form only when the soil is very wet after a rainy period, like we are experiencing now, because the fungus threads are delicate and very prone to drying out. Temperature also plays a role in regulating mushroom formation. A fungus reproduces by making a mushroom. Just like a plant makes flowers and seeds, a fungus makes mushrooms and spores. Spores are the “seeds” of a fungus. If you turn a mushroom over, you can usually see what are called “gills” on the underside of the cap. These are membranes that look a lot like fish gills. Each gill is lined with cells that make spores. They fall out of the bottom of the cap of the mushroom and are picked up by the wind so they can spread to other places. Some edible mushrooms are very similar in appearance to poisonous kinds and may grow in the same habitat. This indicates a need to identify with certainty one of several of the proven edible species and pick and eat only those positively identified. At the same time, you should also learn to identify some of the common poisonous mushrooms, especially those that are similar to edible kinds. Eating wild mushrooms can be a high risk endeavor. It is very important that you NEVER eat any mushroom you find growing in your lawn or any other wild mushroom, unless you know exactly what you are doing. Every year, people die from eating poisonous wild mushrooms they mistakenly thought were edible. Stick to your store-bought mushrooms, which are grown specifically for eating by mushroom farmers, if you do not know if the mushroom is poisonous or edible. We need to keep in mind the adage, there are old mushroom hunters and there are bold mushroom hunters but there are no old, bold mushroom hunters.

DEAR DOCTOR K: For the past few months I’ve been having a lot of trouble falling asleep, basically every night. I’m groggy and can’t concentrate on anything all day. I’d give anything for a good night’s rest.
How can I fall asleep
you feel sleepy right after you take it, but it has a stimulating effect two to four hours later that can interrupt your sleep. -- Exercise daily, preferably early in the day. Regular exercise improves your sleep, although vigorous exercise in the hours just before bedtime can be stimulating and make it hard to fall asleep. -- Eliminate noise or bright lights that might be disrupting your sleep, even if you are not aware of it. -- Use a fan, white noise machine or a recording of nature sounds to lull you to sleep. (By the way, I do this myself, and I’m convinced it helps me sleep more soundly.) --Maintain a comfortable temperature in your bedroom, slightly on the cool side. -- Try not reading or watching TV in bed. They may be stimulating you even if you think they are relaxing you. (But if you don’t have trouble falling asleep and love to read or watch TV in bed, there’s no reason not to.) If these changes don’t do the trick, give behavioral therapies a try: Relaxation therapy: Special

DEAR READER: Trouble falling asleep often occurs because a person is overstimulated. There may be unusual stresses in your life that cause a lot of anxiety. With most of my patients, however, there’s no one thing they can put their finger on that explains why they are lying there having trouble falling asleep. Here are some of the things I tell my patients to do, and not to do, to fall asleep more easily: -- Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, and avoid naps. Get your body used to a regular sleep pattern. -- Cut down on caffeinated beverages during the day. Believe it or not, having caffeine after noon can make you sleep less soundly 10 hours later. -- Avoid heavy meals before bedtime. -Eliminate alcohol before bedtime. A little “nightcap” may make

Am who are interested can get I being selfish, or is she not more information through being much of a grandma? peacecorps.gov. -- Beleaguered Mom Dear Mom: Both. You may not like it, but grandparents are not obligated to take care of your children because you want a night out. After being a preschool administrator, we suspect Joan has had enough of watching little kids and correcting their behavior. That is the parents’ job. Of course, it would be nice if Joan took a greater interest in spending time with your son and she may be more inclined when he is a little older, requires less supervision and they can communicate better.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Associates will find you to be an exhilarating ally. Without even realizing it, you’re likely to set the right example that encourages others to utilize their assets to the fullest as well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Speak up, because your approach to solving another’s complicated business conundrum is likely to be extremely clever and effective.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Although attempting to establish a solid business relationship with just a verbal agreement is not recommended, as long as both parties are honorable, it can still work out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Channel any artistic urges you get into the beautification of your home or personal attire. Neither you nor anybody else will easily tire of your choices, regardless of how extreme they may be. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Not to worry if there is a lot of conversational buzz going on behind your back, because it is likely to all be quite complimentary.

If you’re representing something that you truly believe in, you shouldn’t have any trouble making some good sales. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If it can better your position, there is no reason why you shouldn’t make a few concessions, even if you have to give up more than you thought. It’s the end results that count. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Let someone who is willing to work on your behalf get involved and pitch in wherever and whenever she or he can, especially if it’s within this person’s means to do what you can’t.
