Staff reports Elida FFA member Clayton Miller was named the national winner in Turf Grass Management - Entrepreneurship/Placement Proficiency during the 84th National FFA Convention last week in Indianapolis.

These students competed in an interview at the state level and were state winners last spring; and after the national application evaluation, they were selected to represent their area as finalists in the nation. They attended the convention and had to go through an intense interview process against some of the

The Putman County chapter of the American Red Cross stopped at Ottoville High School Friday to teach seniors CPR. Kenny Jackson, Kaitlyn Ditto and other students were certified to deliver 30 chest compressions and 30 breaths, practicing on dummies. They also learned to apply pressure to the back of a conscious choking victim. Matt Burwell of the county’s Red Cross said the organization made a grant available with which to fund training at all schools in the county and all but Leipsic have participated.

All’s well that
I think it’s time I caught you guys up on what’s going on in my life. I’ve been afraid to say too much out loud because I didn’t want to jinx anything. While you are reading this, Cameron is snuggled in his bed in Toledo in his own apartment. He was released from the halfway house on Oct. 13. He thought he was going to get out on Oct. 18 — and then Oct. 14 — and finally, he was surprised on Oct. 13. He signed his papers, said see-ya and ran out the door. That must have felt good. My husband, mother, sister-in-law and I made a mad dash north on Oct. 10 with all his stuff. We were all quite surprised with our first glimpse of his apartment. It’s an efficiency but the floors are all hardwood and he has lots of windows. It’s really quite nice for his first abode in Toledo. He likes his neighbors and it’s a short, half-block walk to work. Actually, he can step out his and he’s practically there. The library is two blocks away and there are coffee shops and art galleries within walking distance as well. He really didn’t have a lot of stuff due to his hasty departure from his old apartment in Lima. Actually, he is about all that departed nearly six years ago. I made an appearance there to retrieve my father’s service memorabilia Cameron had taken with him; that’s about all. To be quite honest, I was a little upset with him at the time and wasn’t feeling very generous. That’s putting it a

On the Other Hand

For The Record Statue ends well US celebrates birthdayof The Delphos have a feeling I still do Liberty’s 125th Herald that to my mother now
NEW YORK (AP) — Scores of people waved tiny flags after taking the oath of U.S. citizenship at the foot of the Statue of Liberty on Friday, 125 years after the iconic American symbol welcoming visitors and immigrants was dedicated. “We are a nation of diverse people,” Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar said during the naturalization ceremony on Liberty Island. “And that diversity strengthens our nation.” The new Americans, 125 immigrants from 46 countries, pledged to renounce foreign power, then posed for photos with their citizenship certificates. The birthday party concluded Friday with a 12-minute fireworks display choreographed to patriotic music. “I feel like if you live in a place, you should have a say in the politics,” said Paul Currie, who moved to the U.S. from South Africa eight years ago. “Otherwise, you’re an outsider.” Silvia Hodges, who came to the U.S. from Germany in 1999, said the ceremony made her feel “like I belong here — and I really want to vote.” The Statue of Liberty, a gift from France, was conceived to symbolize the friendship between the two countries and a shared love of liberty. President Glover Cleveland dedicated the statue on Oct. 28, 1886. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, “If anybody around this world wants to pick up their family and move so that their family can have freedom — freedom to speak, freedom to be in charge of their own destiny, all the freedoms that we have incorporated into the Bill of Rights — they always come to America.” Actress Sigourney Weaver recited Emma Lazarus’ “The New Colossus” and gestured to the statue behind her at the words “a mighty woman with a torch.” On Friday, Cleveland’s grandson George, a deadringer for the former president, was on hand for the event and received a plaque from the National Park Service. George Cleveland, a 59-year-old executive director of a senior center in North Conway, N.H., said his grandfather was prescient when he said that “a stream of light shall pierce the darkness of ignorance and man’s oppression, until liberty enlightens the world.” “We are still a work in progress,” George Cleveland said. Then, with a 3-2-1 countdown, webcams streaming views from the statue’s torch were switched on. The cameras offer panoramas of the Manhattan skyline, the Hudson River and Liberty Island. Today, the statue’s interior will be closed for renovations for about a year, though Liberty Island will remain open. Vacationers Benoit and Veronique Poullain of Rouen, France, were happy to see the statue on her 125th anniversary. Veronique said it was “like New York, big!” She said the French are “very happy to have contributed this symbol.”

STATE/LOCAL

FFA members in attendance at the 2011 National Convention included, front from left, Kylie Fritz, Lindzi Hoersten, Jessica Hammons and Veronica Vulgamott; row two, Jake Horstman, Kurt Hoersten, Scott Pohlman and Jordan Barclay; and back, Adam Kroeger, Devin Rabe, Dulton Moore, Tanner Vermule, Jason Michel, Cory Osting and Chad Hoersten. (Continued from page 1) Proficiency awards recognize FFA members who have excelled as agricultural entrepreneurs, employers or volunteers while they gained handson experience. These students competed in an interview at the state level and were state winners last spring and after the national application evaluation, they were selected to represent their area as finalists in the nation. They attended the convention and had to go through an intense interview process against some of the best FFA members across the nation. There are 47 different proficiency award categories offered at the local, state, and national levels. In recognition of being a finalist each member received $500 and a plaque. The national winner received an additional $500 and a National Winner Plaque. Ohio FFA had 14 finalists and the Delphos FFA Chapter had four of them. Ohio FFA had 5 national winners and the Delphos chapter had two of those. No other chapter in the nation had more than two finalists in any category — Delphos had four finalists. Also, no other chapter in the nation out of more than 7,300 chapters had multiple winners. For the convention, FFA members boarded a charter bus on Wednesday morning with the Paulding and Wayne Trace FFA chapters.

Six Delphos FFA members, Chad Hoersten, Adam Kroeger, Dean Renner, Eric Dickman, Jenna Faurot and Kayla Wrasman were awarded their American Degree, which is the highest award a member can earn. This degree is given to only one-half of one percent of the 540,000 members. They have completed all of the requirements

Jason Michel was a national proficiency finalist in the area of Emerging Agricultural Technology. He was challenged by his grandfather to do something that would help his restaurant and his farm: turning used cooking grease into bio-diesel. After reading up on the process and doing the research, his grandfather bought the necessary materials for Michel to start his project. With this creation, diesel vehicles like tractors and many trucks could run on used cooking grease. He has produced over 1,100 gallons of his product cutting the costs of fuel on their family farm.

Obama admin renews push for solar energy in West
By MATTHEW DALY The Associated Press resources. Salazar called the announcement a “giant step forward” as officials step up efforts to promote solar power, particularly in the West. The administration’s push for renewable energy has come under attack since California-based Solyndra Inc. closed its doors two month ago after receiving a $528 million federal loan. The company declared bankruptcy and laid off its 1,100 workers. The new plan, which is subject to a 90-day public comment period, “establishes for the first time a blueprint for landscape-level planning that will help facilitate smarter siting of solar energy projects,” Salazar said in a conference call with reporters. It also proposes to open an additional 20 million acres of public land to future solar development. Environmental groups hailed the announcement, but the solar industry was guarded in its response. Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association, said he had “some significant areas of concern” about the solar energy zones Flexibility in project siting and access to transmission were crucial to financing and development of utility-scale solar power plants, Resch said, adding that he was optimistic a balanced approach

DEAR EDITOR: What a cowardly act of the government and those in the statehouse to deny the rights of working people. Then try to lay the blame of this failed economy on the backs of the worker. It was the greedy actions of those on Wall Street and the politicians that ignored what they did. Teachers, police and firemen did not create this mess. I have a son who is a marine and served in Iraq. He did his duty and is home now. Another son is a state highway patrolman and another is a firefighter. My son would not stop chasing a stolen car until he had a better pension plan. My firefighter would not stand outside a burning home waiting for an increase in his dental plan. They would put themselves in harm’s way to protect those in need. That is their job. When they retire, I hope they will be comfortable. I’m sure the governor will be more than comfortable when he retires and he will not have put himself in harm’s way for a second. Vote no on Issue 2 and give honor and respect to those who protect us. Mike Edelbrock, a proud father of sons who serve and protect

Moderately confused

One Year Ago • The Landeck Parents’ Club held its annual Halloween Party. Second-grade costume winners are first place, Anna Fitch, old lady; second place, Karly Mawhorr, bee keeper; and third place, Rileigh Rahrig, washing machine. 25 Years Ago — 1986 • Cabbage is in the crock at Landeck,” said Richard J. “Bunny” Bonifas. Oscar Hempfling has always supplied some of the cabbage for the event, but this year he has raised all of the cabbage in his garden with some to spare. Assisting on Bonifas’ committee are Geeorge Berelsman, Richard Hugel and Dan Pohlman. • Members of the Ottoville Rosary Altar Society met recently in the parish hall. The special program for the evening was “Bridal Fashions throughout the Years.” Sixty-six bridal gowns were modeled. The oldest gown was 118 years old. It belonged to Mary (Ricker) Barlage, great-grandmother of Eileen Kemper. • The 50th anniversary of Delta Omicron Phi Sorority was held with a dinner at the Carriage Inn. The honored guests were chartered members. Following the dinner, members and honored guests retired to the home of Mrs. Nile Brenneman where the guests were greeted and welcomed by the president, Esther Siefker. 50 Years Ago — 1961 • Mrs. Edward M. Wiecher of Delphos, has been appointed State Junior Chairman of the Catholic Daughters of America, according to an announcement by Edna Jane Nolte of Delphos, State Vice Regent. Mrs. Wiecher, past Grand Regent of the senior court of the Catholic Daughters here, has also served as local Junior Chairman, Junior and Juniorette Counselor, and as diocesan Junior Chairman. • Delphos St. John’s Blue Jays romped to their seventh win of the season Friday night by blasting the Crestline High gridders 34-6, at Crestline.

IT WAS NEWS THEN

WASHINGTON (AP) — On the defensive over a half-billiondollar loan to a now-bankrupt solar company, the White House on Friday ordered an independent review of similar loans made by the Energy Department, its latest response to rising criticism over Solyndra Inc. The announcement came as House Republicans prepared for a possible vote next week to subpoena White House documents related to the defunct California company. White House officials said the review would assess the health of more than two dozen other renewable energy loans and loan guarantees made by the Energy Department program that supported Solyndra. Congressional Republicans have been investigating the company’s bankruptcy amid embarrassing revelations that federal officials were warned it had problems but nonetheless continued to support it, and sent President Barack Obama to visit the company and praise it publicly. “Today we are directing that an independent analysis be conducted of the current state of the Department of Energy loan portfolio, focusing on future loan monitoring and management,” White House chief of staff Bill Daley said. “While we continue to take steps to make sure the United States remains competitive in the 21st century energy economy, we must also ensure that we are strong stewards of taxpayer dollars.” Daley said the review would be conducted by former Treasury official Herb Allison, who oversaw the Troubled Asset Relief Program, part of the 2008 Wall Street bailout. The review would not look at the Solyndra case but would evaluate other loans worth tens of billions of dollars and recommend steps to stabilize them if they appear to have problems like the loan to Solyndra.

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration on Thursday identified 17 sites in six Western states as prime candidates for solar energy projects on public lands, continuing a push for solar power despite the high-profile bankruptcy of a solar panel maker that received a half-billion dollar federal loan. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said the latest “Solar Energy Zones” refine and improve on a draft released in December that identified two dozen areas in California, Nevada, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona. Five sites in Nevada, four in Colorado, three in Utah, two each in California and Arizona, and one in New Mexico were identified as ideal for solar development. The sites comprise 285,000 acres, down from about 677,000 acres in December, and reflect the department’s judgment that the targeted land has the highest potential for solar development with the fewest environmental conflicts. The plan is intended to promote development of large, utility-scale solar projects on public lands that will generate thousands of megawatts of electricity. The zones are intended to maximize electricity generation while minimizing conflicts with wildlife and cultural and historic

Obama lost many donors from ’08 race
By JACK GILLUM The Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has lost millions of dollars in support from former donors in Democratic strongholds and in districts that he won narrowly four years ago, according to an Associated Press analysis of the most recent federal campaign finance data. Tens of thousands of supporters who gave him hundreds of dollars or more in the early stages of the 2008 campaign haven’t offered him similar amounts of cash so far in this campaign. And in some cases, former Obama contributors gave to GOP candidates, such as former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Obama’s re-election effort is hardly hurting for cash: His campaign and the Democratic Party raised more than $70 million for Obama’s re-election in the July-September period, outstripping all Republicans combined by tens of millions of dollars. But the AP’s analysis indicates that Obama, beleaguered by a struggling economy, has lost early support from some of his larger financial supporters and will have to work harder to win back party stalwarts and swing voters alike. Obama’s approval ratings have slumped to 41 percent in a recent Gallup poll, as steadfast supporters have found themselves less able or less willing to open their wallets again. “He was our state senator, and when I looked at the Republican side, I thought, ‘We need some fresh blood in the campaign’,” said Janet Tavakoli, 58, a financial analyst from Chicago who gave $1,000 to the president in 2008. “But I was dead wrong about it,” she said, and isn’t supporting any candidate this time. Obama faced then-Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2008. This time he is running unchallenged and has no primaries or caucuses looming, as the Republican candidates do, so potential Obama

could be found. The Bureau of Land Management has done “a commendable job permitting solar power projects over the last two years,” he said. “We look forward to engaging with BLM and other stakeholders in this process to continue that momentum and ensure the industry’s perspective is heard.” While California has only two projects — both near the Arizona border in the southeastern corner of the state — it has more than half the total acreage, with 153,627 acres. Nevada has the next-highest acreage at 60,395. Salazar and other officials said the plan aims to reduce conflicts and delays in approving solar projects, by identifying areas that have been “pre-screened” to show they are near transmission sites and have few if any environmental conflicts. Deputy Interior Secretary David Hayes said the new plan “provides more clarity” on how projects can proceed and gives potential developers certainty that they will be working in areas that the government considers suited for solar power. The new plan is based in part on more than 80,000 comments received after the draft plan was announced in December. The seven sites that were dropped from the draft plan include two each in California, Nevada and New Mexico, and one in Arizona.

WASHINGTON — Herman Cain’s craggy-faced Chief of Staff Mark Block took a drag off a cigarette, blew smoke at the camera and sent the political class into coughing fits. Theories about what Block intended have run the gamut from James Carville’s “He was drunk,” to amateurish campaigning, to post-modern genius. Me? I’m leaning toward accidental brilliance. For those who missed it, and who therefore probably are not reading this, the ad is a 56-second clip of Block talking about his commitment to his candidate, not unusual in a chief of staff. He ends by taking the famous drag. Did he just blow smoke in your face? Kind of, but he’s not just blowing smoke. He’s saying: “Don’t like me smoking? Tough.” Odder than Block’s Marlboro-mannish toke was a final frame showing a tight shot of Cain looking at the camera with a “Here’s looking at you” expression that morphs into a beaming smile held somewhat longer than most people can manage without a twitch of self-consciousness. One nanosecond longer and you expect the smile to morph into something else. Hysterical laughter? Maniacal cackling? The message in Cain’s strangely funny and wildly successful, viral campaign ad

may not have had a target in mind other than to steal the news cycle from Rick Perry’s flat tax plan, which it did. But it hit a bull’s-eye right in the heart of a large demographic — older, bluer-collared voters who happen to be smokers, many of whom also resent the nanny state. What’s 50 million smokers times a $20 donation? No one associated with the campaign is saying this, of course. In fact, Cain has denied any subliminal intent. “Mark happens to be a smoker. He knows it’s a bad habit but he smokes,” said Cain. And though Cain had nothing to do with making the ad, he says he supports the notion that Block should be Block, just as the candidate’s supporters insist, “Let Herman be Herman.” No observer of political theater wants Herman to stop being Herman, but to claims of innocence one must protest: Nein, nein, nein. Not to give too much credit where none may be due, but Cain is now too deep in the dough to plead, “But I’m just a pizza man.” The ad was sheer blinding brilliance, and denial will only serve to win him more fans. The ad succeeded precisely because the sight of someone smoking in a political clip was so jolting. It was especially discombobulating to Americans under,

Cain’s smoking gun
Point of View

donors may not be feeling any sense of urgency. But typically early donors tend to give again, as money is a sign of enthusiasm — something Obama had in spades four years ago. For its analysis, the AP compared the names and addresses of Obama contributors who gave between $200 and $2,500 from April to September 2007 with those who gave amounts in the same range during the same period this year. The AP adjusted its analysis to compensate for contributors who might have moved and listed a new address, or whose name or address was listed slightly differently last time. The Obama campaign said most of its contributors gave small donations this year; it is not required under federal law to provide names of donors who gave less than $200. About 40 percent of total fundraising came from amounts greater than $200 this year, not adjusting for inflation, compared with more than 75 percent during the same period in 2007.

say, 45. Except in movies, people smoking on camera is a relatively unfamiliar sight. No politician would dare smoke in public view. Older Americans, however, remember when cigarette commercials not only were commonplace on television, but TV personalities from Fred Flintstone to Johnny Carson smoked on air. To them, ol’ Block doesn’t look strange or ridiculous with that cigarette. He looks familiar. The nostalgia for a bygone America that Cain is tapping into includes an ashtray. He’s also mining the widespread resentment of big government that has hit smokers hardest, casting them as pariahs and banishing them to the sidewalks. In the nanniest state of all, smokers have been kicked out of Central Park. Yet despite the war on smoking, 50 million Americans choose to enjoy a legal product — “choice” being the operative word that both Cain and Block have used in explaining the ad. One doesn’t have to smoke (I don’t) or sympathize with

smokers to think the nation’s regulatory bureaucracy has become a bit thick. What better way to make that statement than by blowing smoke in nanny’s face? The devil may care what people think, but Herman Cain doesn’t. He’s not a slick politician, he likes to say. He’s just a guy who knows how to run a company and let people be people. The tape, indeed, was unpolished, but there was certainly nothing unsophisticated about the timing of its release. And there’s nothing dumb about Cain playing rope-a-dope while Mitt Romney and Rick Perry duke it out. Those who want to take this country back, as Block puts it in his smokin’ flick, may well have found a kindred spirit in Cain, whose previously low-budget, skeletally staffed campaign suddenly seems like a gold mine of blind luck. He’s blowing smoke rings around the competition in polling (24 percent to Romney’s 21 percent), and the cash is flowing at a rate of $1 million per week. If you view political campaigns as entertainment — and you may as well — Cain’s crazy ad was a lucky strike. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.

Jefferson went for the 2-point conversion and converted with a pass by Jettinghoff to senior Tony George to end the game. “It was a hard-fought football game and I give credit to Spencerville as they were much improved from last year,” Jefferson coach Bub Lindeman said. “Up front, we just felt that they won the battle and dominated us on the tackles. Their offense at the line of scrimmage led to the outcome of the football game. I was proud of our guys for hanging on and playing hard and it was a good season for our seniors.” Jefferson ends its season at 4-6 (3-5 NWC) while the Bearcats are 8-2 (6-2 NWC). Spencerville coach John Zerbe doesn’t know if his team — entering the night ranked 10th in Region 18 — will make the playoffs yet but he didn’t sound confident that they would. Still, it was a great way to end the year. “Our game plan tonight was to be physical and we knew that

Bulldogs slice Panthers in grid season finale
By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald zsportslive@yahoo.com COLUMBUS GROVE — The Columbus Grove Bulldogs used just 14 plays to score on their first three possessions of their Northwest Conference matchup with the Bluffton Pirates on Friday night as the Bulldogs rolled to a 42-14 victory at Clymer Stadium to end the 2011 campaign. Senior Jordan Travis threw for 356 yards and two touchdowns and had an interception, while Derek Rieman scored twice and picked off two passes. Senior Wade Heffner added two rushing scores of his own to lead the onslaught. The Bulldogs used just five plays on their first possession, capped off by a 47-yard touchdown pass from Travis to Zach Barrientes, a drive that took just two minutes to complete. The extra point was blocked to keep the score at 6-0. On the Pirates’ first series, quarterback Robbie Stratton threw the first of three Bluffton interceptions; Travis picked off the pass and brought it back to the Bluffton 45. Four plays later, Collin Grothaus drove the ball in from three yards out to give the hosts a 13-0 advantage after the extra point. Grothaus started the drive with a 31-yard scamper to set up what was already good field position for the Bulldogs. The Bulldog offense had been productive. Now the defense did its part, holding the guests to a 3-and-out and forcing a punt. Columbus Grove began its next drive from their 36 but in just five plays and taking only 2:32 off the clock, the ’Dogs found themselves in the end zone again. This time, Travis connected with Rieman for a 46-yard strike to make it a 20-0 score — after the point-after-touchdown — with 3:34 remaining in the first canto. Bluffton started to get momentum swinging in its direction in the second quarter. Stratton hooked up with brother RJ Stratton for a 29-yard connection, giving the Pirates a 1st-and-10 at the Grove 12. Three plays later, Jeremy Basinger ran the ball in from two yards out to make it a 20-7 contest — after the PAT — with 10:30 left before the break. The Pirate defense held on the next Grove possession, forcing a turnover on downs, but the Bluffton offense could not capitalize and was forced to punt. The hosts took advantage and starting on their own 37, put together another drive. On second-and-13, Rieman made a circus catch off a Travis pass, grabbing the ball 1-handed and tucking it in for the reception, giving the ’Dogs a 1st-and-10 in Bluffton territory. Four plays later, Heffner toted what seemed to be the Pirate line 16 yards into the end zone; the Bulldogs went for two after a personal foul on the visitors and after the completion, made it a 28-7 game. Basinger scored his second touchdown of the evening early in the second half as the Pirates struck early, finding the end zone on their first possession of the half. Basinger had the longest play of the night for Bluffton, taking a pass from Robbie Stratton 47 yards to cut the score in half at 28-14 (2-pointer good). However, that was the last time that the visitors would find the end zone in the contest and the season. The Bulldogs grabbed their third pick of the game early in the fourth when Rieman picked

off his second from Stratton. One play later, he caught his second consecutive pass, this one from his quarterback, for a 28-yard strike to send the Bulldogs up 35-14. The hosts weren’t done yet. On Bluffton’s very next play from scrimmage, Alec Gladwell fell on a fumble on the Bluffton 10 to give the Bulldogs their fourth takeaway of the game. Heffner scored three plays later on a 5-yard run to cap off the 42-14 rout.

Ottawa-Glandorf rolls Van Wert on Senior Night By Brian Bassett Times Bulletin Sports Editor sports@timesbulletin.com VAN WERT - The 7-2 Ottawa-Glandorf Titans rolled into Eggerss Stadium Friday night, having only lost to Western Buckeye League unbeatens (before the game) Wapakoneta and Kenton on the season and had their sights set on a home playoff game. The Van Wert Cougars had hopes of a season-ending upset but Brandon Kuhlman and the O-G ground game were too much for the Cougars to overcome as the Titans ran to a 61-7 victory over Van Wert. The Titans drew blood on the first series of the night when Kuhlman took the second play from scrimmage 75 yards to the end zone. The Josh Buckland extra point gave the Titans an early 7-0 lead. The Titans forced a Cougar punt but returned the ball to Van Wert on a muffed catch. However, the Cougars could not get anything together as a fumble returned the ball to the Titans. O-G made the Cougar turnover hurt as Kuhlman recorded a 31-yard touchdown run with 3:53 to play in the first quarter. The PAT was good by Buckland to make the score 14-0, Titans. Both teams traded possessions which ended on turnovers-ondowns before the Cougars took over at their own 5. Van Wert was riding a wave of momentum after shutting out the Titans four consecutive times, holding them on a 4th-and-2. They could not sustain the momentum, however, and fumbled the ball back to O-G on their second offensive play. The Titans again capitalized, this time with a 9-yard Kuhlman TD run. The Buckland PAT gave O-G a 21-0 lead with 7:45 to play in the second quarter. The Cougars were forced to punt on the ensuing drive but held the Titans, thwarting a fake punt attempt. The Cougar offense continued to have trouble moving the ball and punted again. The Titan special teams unit did its job; Brad

Racer blocked the punt and carried it in for a touchdown. Buckland’s PAT made the score 28-0 with 2:53 to play in the first half. Another Cougar punt gave the Titans the ball at their own 42e. They put together a scoring drive which culminated on a Caleb Siefker 6-yard touchdown run with 15 seconds left to play in the opening half. The Buckland PAT made the halftime score 35-0, O-G. Van Wert forced a Titan fumble on the kick return to open the second half. They could not capitalize, however, as an incomplete pass resulted in a turnover on downs. The Titans took the ball 60 yards in the opposite direction, scoring on an 18-yard run by Kuhlman. The Buckland PAT made the O-G advantage 42-0 with 7:46 to play in the third. The Cougars fumbled the ball away on their ensuing possession but forced the Titans to punt. Van Wert fumbled again at their own 10. Logan Rieman - who came in to replace Siefker earlier in the game - connected with Luke Recker for a 15-yard touchdown pass. A missed extra point kept the score 48-0 with 2:13 to play in the third. Van Wert responded on the following drive, driving the ball down the field and scoring on a Caleb Lloyd 21-yard TD run. Austin Reichert made the score 48-7 with his PAT at the 1:10 mark of the third quarter. The Cougars stopped the Titans on the following drive before giving the ball back via another fumble. O-G took the ball 53 yards to score on a Rieman TD run. The Tyler Morman PAT made the score 55-7 with 6:16 to play in the finale. O-G got one last score - by way of another Cougar turnover - on an interception returned for a touchdown by Blake Blevins. A missed PAT made the score 61-7 with 4:38 to play in the game, ending up as the final score. Kuhlman racked up 201 yards on 17 carries on the night, scoring four touchdowns. Kulhman - who missed most of the year with a neck injury - was filling in for starter Tristan Parker, who was out

with injury. The Cougars had seven turnovers on the night: six fumbles and an interception. The Cougar offense was set back when starting quarterback Tyler Williams went out in the first half with a concussion and were without the services of backup Chandler Adams. Freshman Nick Krugh took over the quarterback duties in the game. The Cougars are faced with the challenge of improving throughout the offseason. The Titans will move on to the playoffs next week. They ran for 250 yards on the night and the combination of Siefker and Logan Rieman passed for 170 yards and a touchdown. The Cougars had 134 yards of offense, 80 on the ground. Reichert led the Cougar rushing attack with 59 yards on 11 carries, Lloyd added 45 yards on five carries. ---Knights roll in season finale on Senior Night, 48-20 By Kevin Wannemacher Times Bulletin Correspondent sports@timesbulletin.com CONVOY – Matt Holden scored five touchdowns and added pair of 2-point conversions to lead Crestview to a 48-20 Northwest Conference win over Paulding in the season finale at Crestview Stadium Friday night. The Knights finished the year at 5-5 overall and 4-4 in the NWC, a 3-game improvement over a year ago under first-year coach Jared Owens. The victory is also Crestview’s first week 10 win since a 40-14 victory over the Panthers in 2007. Holden scored all four Crestview touchdowns in the opening half in three different ways. Paulding struck first on a 51-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Julian Salinas to junior Lance Foor. The Panther advantage was short-lived, though. Just over three minutes later, Holden sprinted away from the Panther defense on a 56-yard touchdown scamper that knotted the contest at 6-6.

Holden put the Knights on top 14-6 with 2:49 left in the period, scoring on a 20-yard pass from freshman quarterback Preston Zaleski. Holden then ran in the 2-point conversion to put Crestview up eight. Paulding responded, though, just before the end of the quarter. Taking advantage of a Crestview fumble, the maroon and white took over at the Knight 30-yard line. On the first play of the drive, Salinas found fellow sophomore Javier Gonzales for a 30-yard touchdown that pulled the Panthers within 14-12. However, Crestview answered with a score on the last play of the opening stanza. Holden broke free on a third-and-1 play at the Paulding 15 to find the end zone, putting the Knights up 21-12 after one quarter. The home squad widened the margin to 27-12 at halftime after another Holden score, this time on a 25-yard interception return. Crestview put the game away early in the third quarter when Zaleski found Holden for a 17-yard touchdown pass that gave the Knights a commanding 33-12 lead. The Panthers trimmed the deficit to 33-18 on a 14-yard touchdown run by Drey Gamble. Salinas found Steve Heilman for the 2-point conversion to pull the maroon and white within 33-20. Crestview would seal the win, though, on a 13-yard touchdown run by Malcolm Oliver that put the Knights up 41-20. Senior Noah Gebert picked up the final Crestview touchdown on a 15-yard run with senior Nate Mladenovic converting the extrapoint kick. Holden finished the night with 152 yards on the ground on 18 carries, while junior Jacob Harmon added 109 yards on a dozen tries. Holden also had three receptions for 49 yards. Knight seniors closing their football careers included Mladenovic, Holden, Nick Leary, Noah Gebert, Nick Cunningham, Drew Miller, Jared Burger and Chase Walters.

PICKS

OHIO DIVISION OF NATURAL RESOURCES CENTRAL OHIO Buckeye Lake (Fairfield/ Licking/Perry counties) - As water temperatures cool, hybrid-striped bass will again feed more actively; try chicken livers fished on the bottom or troll spinners along the north shore from Seller’s Point to the north boat ramp at SR 79. Channel catfish are being taken right now using cut bait on the bottom. Crappies from 9-12 inches are active; use minnows and jigs around points especially in the east half of the lake. O’Shaughnessy Reservoir (Delaware Co.) - This 912-acre site north of Columbus is a good place to catch largemouth bass and channel catfish. Channel cats can be caught on cut baits, nightcrawlers and shrimp fished on the bottom. Crappies are also being caught around woody cover using minnows and jigs. Saugeye can be caught on shallow flats and along rocky shorelines; try crank or blade baits at dawn and dusk for best results. NORTHWEST OHIO Ottawa Reservoir (Putnam Co.) - Try fishing for saugeye, channel catfish and crappie in this small above-ground reservoir. For saugeye, try minnows, nightcrawlers and jigworms. For crappies, use minnows suspended under a bobber. For catfish, use nightcrawlers, shrimp or cut shad; if you’re lucky, you may even catch a big flathead catfish. Try along the shoreline in the evening to catch all three of these species. Findlay Reservoir #2 (Hancock Co.) Yellow perch can be caught by boat using minnows and redworms; try in 20-25 feet of water during the day. Still-fishing minnows in 20-25 feet of water should work for walleye, especially the south end of the reservoir during the day. Bellevue Reservoir #5 (Huron Co.) - Fish in approximately 10 feet of water to catch crappies and yellow perch in the west side using minnows under a slip bobber. For the best results, try in the evening. NORTHEAST OHIO Mogadore Reservoir (Portage Co.) - The fall crappie bite has continued to be good here despite the soggy weather. Crappie jigs and tubes is all it is taking to put some slabs in the cooler, as well as minnows on jigs or under a bobber; crappie seem to be concentrated in deeper water. Look for depths around 13-15 feet and begin fishing towards the bottom; work your way up the water column until you start to get consistent bites and then stick with that depth. For some great fish recipes, visit www. wildohio.com. Tappan Lake (Harrison Co.) - While fishing for saugeye last weekend, anglers also caught bluegill, bass, crappie, catfish, white bass and perch! Fishing is hot at this 2,350-acre lake located on US 250; most were caught on chartreuse worm harnesses fished between US 250 and the island by the park ramp, particularly latemorning hours. The saugeye were the most impressive, measuring 12-21 inches in length; a 21-incher qualifies for Fish Ohio! SOUTHEAST OHIO AEP ReCreation Land (Morgan/Muskingum/Noble counties) - Cooler temperatures have spurred bass and bluegill activity in these smaller ponds. Use worms or wax worms suspended under a bobber for the best bluegill results. For largemouth bass, fish close to shore using crankbait in the late evening; nice catches were reported over the weekend, with some weighing in over 5 pounds. Forked Run Lake (Meigs Co.) Anglers looking for bluegill should find success fishing below the spillway; keep it simple by fishing wax

or meal worms under a bobber. Muskingum River (Washington Co) - Fishing for saugeye, white bass and hybrid-stripers is improving below the Devola Dam; try casting jigs or crankbaits into the current and floating them back. SOUTHWEST OHIO Adams Lake (Adams Co.) Bluegill are being taken using any of the following worms: red, earth, wax or meal. Fish from a boat, along the pier, or along the shoreline; keep the bait about 2-3 feet deep under a bobber. C. J. Brown Reservoir (Clark Co.) - Crappie are biting on jigs with plastic bodies and live minnows, especially from a boat or the shoreline; fish the bait slowly along the bottom, still-fish or use a slip bobber, particularly between 3 to more than 10 feet deep. Paint Creek (Highland Co.) Crappies are being caught using minnows or jigs in 3-12 feet of water around any type of woody structure, such as downed trees and overhanging brush and around the campgrounds. A few saugeye are being caught by casting jigs or trolling small crankbaits between the beach and the island and along the hazard area. Bluegill are being caught on wax worms under a bobber 2-4 feet deep; good spots are back in the coves, near stumps and around fallen timber. OHIO RIVER Belmont/Monroe Counties Smallmouth bass can be caught along the rip-rap or by casting out with crankbaits resembling minnows or shad; short-arm spinner baits (1/2-oz.) with dark-colored skirts and pork trailers can also be effective. In the Hannibal tailwater, fish the West Virginia shore to the New Martinsville Bridge to catch the best action on smallies. Western Ohio River - Anglers are still taking channel catfish on chicken livers and cutbait around warm-water discharges. Carp are biting on dough balls and corn. Hybrids are hitting Rapalas and rattletraps. LAKE ERIE Daily Bag Limit Regulations to Remember: Lake Erie walleye - 6 fish (minimum size limit of 15 inches): Yellow perch - 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie; Steelhead trout - 2 fish per angler (minimum size limit of 12 inches); Lake Erie black bass (largemouth and smallmouth) - 5 fish (minimum size limit of 14 inches). Western Basin: There have been very few walleye reports; the best reports have come from Kelleys Island and Gull Island shoals. Expect fishing to improve as water temperatures drop and migratory walleye move back towards the west from the central basin. ... There have been very few reports on yellow perch as of 10/25). The best reports have come from off of the Moose Lodge in Port Clinton and E of the Kelleys Island airport using spreaders with shiners (emerald or golden) fished near the bottom. Central Basin: The best walleye fishing as been 4-6 miles N of Vermilion using mostly deep-diving crankbaits and harnesses behind divers. ... Fair to good yellow perch fishing was reported at 35-38 feet NE of Rocky River, 35-38’ NW of Edgewater State Park, 52-55’ NW of Fairport and 76’ NE of Conneaut. Perch-spreaders with shiners fished on the bottom produces the most fish; anglers have been using golden shiners when emerald shiners are not available. A few fish have been caught by shore anglers off the East 55th St. Pier in Cleveland; mornings and evenings have been best. ... Northeast Ohio rivers remain high due to rains late last week; conditions will improve throughout the week for steelhead trout. ... The water temperature is 50 degrees off of Toledo and 56 degrees off of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast.

Perfection is a two-edged sword
DEAR DOCTOR K: I’ve always been a bit of a perfectionist -- perhaps more than a bit. This trait helps me in many ways, but sometimes it causes me stress. I wonder if it might have a downside. What are your thoughts on the pros and cons? DEAR READER: There are definitely pros and cons to perfectionism. Also, keep in mind that the world isn’t neatly divided into perfectionists and nonperfectionists: There’s a little perfectionism in a lot of people. There surely is in me. (At least, that’s what some people say.) Perfectionism definitely has an upside. Doing a job as well as you can is a quality found in many corporate leaders, skilled surgeons or Olympic champions. But perfectionism can be exhausting -- as you may have noticed. Most of us feel like we have more on our plate than we can easily deal with. The more time we spend trying to get one thing right, the less time for something else. So we need more time, and the time has to come from somewhere. Usually, it comes from time you should spend kicking back and relaxing -- and we need to relax. In its more extreme forms, perfectionism can also be hazardous to your mental health. It can lead to a tendency toward endless self-criticism. You find yourself focusing on your mistakes rather than on your achievements. If you have a tendency to suffer from depression, perfectionism can trigger it. We don’t really know what causes perfectionism. Some people are born to be perfectionists. Watch two kids of the same age playing with the same blocks. One kid lines the blocks up perfectly, with no gaps. Another lines them up slightly askew. I think perfectionism in parents is learned by their children,

particularly those who are born to be perfectionists. One resource that may help you get the most positive return from your

Ask Dr. Komaroff
perfectionism is a new book from Harvard Health Publications called “The Perfectionist’s Handbook.” It can help you channel your perfectionism to be productive with less effort and maintain balance in your work and life. The bottom line is that perfectionism is a doubleedged sword. Setting high standards for yourself can be a very good thing. But if you are constantly beating yourself up when you don’t meet these standards, it can quickly turn negative. Even if your perfectionism is not affecting how you feel about yourself, it can be counterproductive. The biggest problem with perfectionism: It can feed upon itself and make the perfect harder to achieve. There’s an old saying that “Not everything worth doing is worth doing well.” I’m not sure I agree with that, but I would definitely say, “Not everything worth doing is worth doing perfectly.” You are the best judge of whether your perfectionism has crossed the line from a helpful personality trait to a burden. If it has, the book I mentioned may help. A talk with a mental health professional may also help you sort things out.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Sunday, Oct. 30, 2011 In the year ahead, you are likely to find yourself in a prolonged cycle where you’ll be able to further your material aspirations with relative ease. However, once you start a new endeavor, you must stick with it until it is completed. ScORPIO (Oct. 24-nov. 22) -- Sometimes your ability to make a fast calculation can be a real asset. Don’t dismiss what comes easily, because your initial perceptions are apt to be right on the money. SaGIttaRIuS (nov. 23dec. 21) -- Something opportune could develop where your personal interests are concerned. Be prepared to act immediately; he who hesitates is lost. caPRIcORn (dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t treat a creative idea lightly just because it suddenly flashed in your head from out of nowhere. Sometimes the brainstorms are the ones that have the best prospects. aQuaRIuS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It is persistence that is the real secret to success. Thus, don’t throw in the towel prematurely if things don’t get rolling your way immediately. Give time for events to reverse themselves. PIScES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Your role could be one of a catalyst, bringing everyone together for a common cause. In fact, you are likely to be quite lucky yourself in terms of joint efforts. aRIES (March 21-april 19) -If you think you have a solution for something that has given you fits, give it a try. Even if it isn’t the perfect answer, chances are it’ll prove you’re on the right track. tauRuS (april 20-May 20) -- Don’t hesitate to play a more prominent role in your involvements with friends, if you’re asked to do so. What you do now may set the stage for something important later. GEMInI (May 21-June 20) -- Even if you don’t have as much control over an important development as you’d like, you still should be able to put your imprint on things that are important. Don’t give up so easily. cancER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t be intimidated by size or clout, because the grander or larger something is, the easier it is to get your teeth into. Bigger projects are just more to chew. LEO (July 23-aug. 22) -- You’re smart to fear known knowns, but it’s what you can’t see that should be the most dreaded. Don’t let your guard down. VIRGO (aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Optimism enhances your chances for success. Adopting a positive attitude will considerably improve conditions in general, allowing you to operate at maximum potential. LIBRa (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If someone with a good track record talks to you about a good investment or business deal, listen attentively. You might want to look into it to see if it has real merit. MOnday, Oct. 31, 2011 You’ve learned some valuable lessons in the past and you won’t repeat the same mistakes in the coming year, so you are now ready to move on to more advanced assignments. Make the most of what is handed to you. ScORPIO (Oct. 24-nov. 22) -- Inviting someone to an informal gathering with friends may not be as thoughtful as you intended. If this person doesn’t fit in, it could spoil the fun for everyone. SaGIttaRIuS (nov. 23-dec. 21) -- Make sure you can keep all your commitments, because someone to whom you make a promise will take you at your word and plan his or her entire day around what you say. caPRIcORn (dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Although you may mean well, the way you manage the resources of another may turn out to be a terrible mistake and result in a huge loss. Your intentions are good but irresponsible. aQuaRIuS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- In trying to complete a specific assignment, you might take on an ally in hopes of finishing it sooner. Sadly, the person you choose could only make matters worse. PIScES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you have to deal with an assignment that you do not fully understand, don’t pretend you can handle it. Don’t let your pride inhibit you from requesting the help you sorely need. aRIES (March 21-april 19) -Put off taking any financial gambles -- the odds simply aren’t in your favor for the moment. It would also be smart to prevent anyone else from making a commitment for you. tauRuS (april 20-May 20) -All the wishing in the world won’t make things happen the way you want them to, so if it’s possible, put off all important scheduled events until another day. GEMInI (May 21-June 20) -Before you rely on any gossip, check out everything yourself. Regardless of how long it takes to verify something, it’s vital that you don’t take at face value what is being said. cancER (June 21-July 22) -- If your resources aren’t being prudently managed, there is a chance you could respond in a way that could be costly at a later date. Take time to figure things out. LEO (July 23-aug. 22) -- Even if you know what changes need to be implemented concerning your family, you could let haste push you into making a major gaffe. Slow down and think carefully before you upset the apple cart. VIRGO (aug. 23-Sept. 22) -You should take care not to allow your emotions to influence your judgment. The way things are in the real world and the way you perceive them could be galaxies apart. LIBRa (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Although, many times, business can mix very comfortably with social arrangements, this will not be so at present. Do all that you can to keep the two separated.

It’s My Job

Lindeman grew to love her job

Delphos native Cassie Lindeman wasn’t interested in medical transcripting when she got her associate’s degree in medical assisting. Now she loves it. By STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — When Delphos native Cassie Lindeman decided to pursue a career in the medical field, she didn’t expect to get a job as a Medical Transcriptionist. “I went to the University of Northwestern Ohio and got my associate’s degree in Medical Assisting and I remember not really liking the transcription part of it very much,” she said. “About a month after I graduated, a job opening for a Medical Transcriptionist came up at St. Rita’s Medical Center and I applied for it because it was an opportunity. After I got the job and started working here, I really started to like it. It’ll be five years for me in April and I can’t really think of anything I’d like to do more than this.” Even though Lindeman sits in front of a computer for hours every day, she says her job is far from boring. “After the doctors see patients, they record their reports and we have to listen and type them up for records,” she said. “You have to understand what the doctors are saying and you need to be familiar with the terminology. You learn something new every day, whether it’s a term or a medication, so I always go home knowing something I didn’t know yesterday.” “Plus it’s a challenge because it’s not something everyone could do or would like doing,” she continued. “There’s a lot to remember and a lot of the doctors have accents, so it can be hard to understand them in the reports. Pretty often we’ll run across something in the recording that we can’t make out and ask each other to listen to see if they can. If none of us can understand it, we just put a blank there and the doctor goes back in and listens to that part of their report and fills it in. You also have to sit there all day, typing, remaining focused.” According to Lindeman, staying focused and on task isn’t as difficult as it sounds. “I like that I’m a transcriptionist in a hospital because there is a wide variety of cases,” she said. “I type up reports on anything from a standard cough to surgery or emergency room visits. It’s easy to stay focused because every report is different. Another thing that keeps us motivated is what we call an incentive. We have a certain number of lines we’re supposed to get typed and if you type more than required, you get paid a little more for that day. So you type faster and work harder because you want to get it done.” Lindeman says the people she works with play a big part in making the job enjoyable. “We have really great management that works well with us. They’re easy to communicate with about any issue,” she added. “The other transcriptionists I work with do an awesome job and I’ve made a lot of friends here, which is great. “I really like working at St. Rita’s, even if I’m behind the scenes. I got to be involved with the Pink Glove Dance video they did, too, and that was a lot of fun. I’m just glad to be associated with such a great facility. They really take care of their employees,” she added.

Striving for 100% Survival
It’s a lofty goal, but at St. Rita’s Medical Center we’re committed to doing everything we can to make this breast cancer survival rate a reality. And that starts with getting the word out about early detection. Annual mammograms, along with careful self-examinations, can help you detect breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stage. October is breast cancer awareness month which means it’s the perfect time to schedule a mammogram. Please call 1-419-226-9056 today.

White the fall color in Northeast this weekend
HEBRON, Conn. (AP) — Steve Hoffman had expected to sell a lot of fall fertilizer this weekend at his hardware store in Hebron but instead spent Friday moving bags of ice melting pellets. A storm moving up the East Coast was expected to combine with a cold air mass and dump anywhere from a dusting of snow to about 10 inches today in parts of the Northeast. “We’re stocked up and we’ve already sold a few shovels,” Hoffman said. “We actually had one guy come in and buy a roof rake.” National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson said the rake probably won’t be needed, but October snowfall records could be broken in parts of southern New England, especially at higher elevations. The October record for southern New England is 7.5 inches in Worcester in 1979. The most snow will likely hit the Massachusetts Berkshires, the Litchfield Hills in northwestern Connecticut, southwestern New Hampshire and the southern Green Mountains. Connecticut Gov. Dannel P.

Answers to Friday’s questions: Hopalong Cassidy was never afraid to enter a bar and request his regular drink — milk —straight up. He was the clean-living, honest-talking cowboy who loved his vitamin D. On average, a greeting card is touched 25 times before being purchased. Today’s questions: In order to be called an official drought, how long does it have to go without rain? What ride debuted at Coney Island amusement park in 1896, drawing more than 75,000 visitors? Answers in Monday’s Herald. Today’s words: Inconcinnity: unsuitableness Zapateado: a Spanish tap dance

Malloy warned residents that they could lose power. The storm could bring more than 6 inches of snow to parts of Maine beginning tonight. Parts of southern Vermont could receive more than a foot of wet snow today into Sunday. In Pennsylvania, 6 to 10 inches could fall at higher elevations, including the Laurel Highlands in the southwestern part of the state and the Pocono Mountains in the northeastern part. Philadelphia and Pittsburgh could see a coating. “This is very, very unusual,” said John LaCorte, a National Weather Service meteorologist in State College, Pa. “It has all the look and feel of a classic midwinter nor’easter. It’s going to be very dangerous.” The last major widespread snowstorm in Pennsylvania this early was in 1972, LaCorte said. In New England, the first measurable snow usually falls in early December, and normal highs for late October are in the mid-50s. “This is just wrong,” said Dee Lund of East Hampton, who was at a Glastonbury garage getting four new tires put on her car before a weekend road trip to New Hampshire.
