50¢ daily www.delphosherald.com BY KIRK DOUGAL Times Bulletin Editor VAN WERT — In his 2002 State of the Union Address, former President George W. Bush stressed a spirit of volunteerism in the days after 9/11. He called on all Americans to volunteer in whatever way they could to help their country. In the wake of his call, he created the USA Freedom Corps, with the Citizen Corps underneath it to coordinate volunteer activities and increase readiness and effectiveness to respond to emergencies. One of the five partner programs under the Citizen Corps is the Medical Reserve Corps and in Van Wert County, Mariea Moreland is the coordinator for the group. The MRC has existed in the area for a few years but is really just getting back up and running again, operating under the Van Wert County Health Department. Moreland is searching for more volunteers to help fill the ranks since the H1N1 scare two years ago. “There are nine original volunteers that have met specific training but you are not going to have a big response to a mass event with only nine people,” she said. “So the target right now is definitely recruitment.” While the medicallytrained volunteers certainly

tors, nurses, pharmacists, and others. It also includes nonmedical personnel as a part of its mission. That mission includes the logistics that go into making sure help gets to where it needs to be. That might mean making sure information is getting to the public, answering phones, or setting up way stations where the medical personnel would be helping victims. The MRC would provide volunteers who help ensure behind-thescenes items are handled so first-responders and medical personnel can do their jobs. While most of the training goes into being prepared for large events, volunteers could also help with smaller events. Last summer when the heat index was approaching 120 degrees, the MRC helped with cooling stations for residents who did not have air conditioning. Being prepared for a wide range of events means a wide range of training, including practicing in mock events with the agencies they would be working with in a real disaster. “FEMA and the Medical Reserve Corps would work together and (Emergency Management Director Rick McCoy) puts on trainings that we would be invited to to meet our requirements,” she said.

Going through mock disasters is an important part of the training, she said, adding that to see the multiple levels of actions that must be coordinated in the event of a mass disaster is a real eyeopener for a lot of people. That also includes working with the nearby counties that also have MRC units. She said they have worked closely with Mercer and Allen counties in the past. Despite being an all-volunteer operation, the MRC still needs funding to be able to perform their duties. In the Van Wert unit’s case, that means grant monies from See MRC, page 2A

Family wants more scholarship applicants
BY NANCY SPENCER email@example.com DELPHOS — Most students who apply for the Rene Schimmoller Scholarship are too young to remember the fund’s namesake. Rene was the daughter of Dick and Joyce Schimmoller. She died on Dec. 22, 1987, at the age of 5 from complications from a brain tumor and an HIV-tainted blood transfusion. The community mobilized and collected money to help defray the family’s medical expenses. Money left over from fundraisers was earmarked for scholarships in Rene’s name. Two $250 scholarships were give in 1992; one to a high school senior from Jefferson and one from St. John’s. When the Jaycees disbanded in 2003, the funds were put into a charitable corporation. Today, the corporation awards four $750 scholarships each year; two to each high school to a male and female senior. To date, 61 scholarships totaling $29,250 have been awarded. However, scholarship applications are down from years past. “We have noticed the number of scholarship applications is not what it used to be and we wanted to make sure students were aware of the scholarships so they could apply,” Dick Schimmoller said. “We want applications from as many student as possible.” A 14-member panel judges the scholarships applications. The criteria for the scholarships is simple; applicants must be a high school senior at St. John’s or Jefferson and be involved in the community. “We don’t just want the top kids in the class; we want rounded students who are involved in their community as well as in school activities,” Schimmoller said. “They need to have volunteerism on their resume.” A Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament is set for Saturday at the Walterick-Hemme Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3035 in Delphos with all proceeds benefiting the Rene Schimmoller Scholarship Fund. Registration is at 11 a.m. with the buy-in at $40. A silent auction, 50/50 drawing and all-you-can-eat hot dogs and chili is just $5. For information, contact Joyce Schimmoller at 419236-9585.

Schools closed in snowy Northeast
By MICHAEL MELIA The Associated Press SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. — Thousands of schoolchildren around the Northeast had one of the earliest snow days in memory today after a storm dumped as much as 30 inches of wet, heavy snow that snapped trees and power lines, caused widespread power failures and threatened to disrupt Halloween trick-or-treating. Communities from Maryland to Maine that suffered through a tough winter last year followed by a series of floods and storms went into now-familiar emergency mode as shelters opened, inaccessible roads closed, regional transit was suspended or delayed, and local leaders urged caution. The storm’s lingering effects likely will outlast the snow. Temperatures are expected to begin rising today and the heavy, wet snow will start melting, the National Weather Service said. The unseasonably early nor’easter had utility companies struggling to restore electricity to more than 3 million homes and businesses. By early today, the number of customers without power was still above 2 million but falling. But officials in some states warned it could be days or even a week before residents have power again, even though crews have been brought in from as far away as Michigan and Canada. “We are in full restoration mode,” said Marcy Reed, president of National Grid Massachusetts. Trees, branches and power lines still littered roads and rail lines throughout the region, leading to a tough morning commute for many. Some local officials canceled or postponed Halloween activities, fearful that young trick-or-treaters could wander into areas with downed power lines or trees ready to topple over. “With so many wires down ... the sidewalks will not be safe for pedestrians tonight,” Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton told The Hartford Courant. A weekend that should have brought activity no more strenuous than raking colorful autumn leaves left Northeasterners weatherweary. “You had this storm, you had Hurricane Irene, you had the flooding last spring and you had the nasty storms last winter,” Tom Jacobsen said Sunday while getting coffee at a convenience store in Hamilton Township, N.J. “I’m starting to think we really ticked off Mother Nature somehow because we’ve been getting spanked by her for about a year now.” In New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie declared the damage to utilities worse than that John Burke, 24. Two other employees were hospitalized with severe burns. Bartlett officials decided to temporarily halt the search for three other people presumed dead — one worker and two grain inspectors — because of safety concerns inside the heavily damaged facility. In a statement late Sunday, company officials “it is apparent that they also were killed in the explosion.” Smoke could still be seen billowing from the top of the elevator Sunday, and officials were fearful the building could fall on top of rescue crews. “It’s a fairly dangerous situation. We don’t feel comfortable putting fire crews in,” Atchison City Manager Trey Cocking said. Recovery efforts were expected to resume at daybreak today, officials said. Among the three presumed dead was Travis Keil, a war veteran who had served as a site inspector for 16 years. His parents, Gary and Ramona
For The Record
3 men killed in Kansas grain elevator blast
ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) — Three young men were killed in a thunderous explosion at a Kansas grain elevator and recovery efforts for three other people presumed dead were being hampered by the damage, authorities said late Sunday. The blast, which shook the ground so hard that it was felt in neighboring Missouri, was a harrowing reminder of the dangers workers face inside elevators brimming with highly combustible grain dust at the end of the harvest season. The explosion Saturday night in Atchison, about 50 miles northwest of Kansas City, sent an orange fireball into the night sky, shot off a chunk of the grain distribution building directly above the elevator and blew a large hole in the side of one of its concrete silos. The three Bartlett Grain Co. workers killed were identified late Sunday by local authorities as Chad Roberts, 20; Ryan Federinko, 21; and
wrought by Irene, a deadly storm that blew through the state in August. Things were similar in Connecticut, where the power loss of 800,000 broke a record set by Irene. By early today, around 400,000 people lacked power in New Jersey and more than 750,000 in Connecticut. The snowstorm smashed record snowfall totals for October and worsened as it moved north. Communities in western Massachusetts were among the hardest hit. Snowfall totals topped 27 inches in Plainfield, and nearby Windsor got 26 inches. The snowstorm was blamed for at least 12 deaths, and states of emergency were declared in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and parts of New York. “Look at this, look at all the damage,” said Jennifer Burckson, 49, after she came outside Sunday morning in South Windsor to find a massive tree branch had smashed her car’s back windshield. Trees in the neighborhood snapped in half, with others weighed down so much that the leaves brushed the snow. Compounding the storm’s impact were still-leafy trees, which gave the snow something to hang onto and that put tremendous weight on branches, said National Weather Service spokesman Chris Vaccaro. That led to limbs breaking off and contributed to the widespread power failures. Keil, drove from Salina to Atchison, to wait with his three children — ages 8, 12 and 15 — as crews searched. “We have all our prayers working for him,” Gary Keil said. “It’s a parent’s worst nightmare to go through this.” Bartlett Grain President Bill Fellows said in a statement that workers were loading a train with corn when the explosion occurred, but the cause was not immediately known. The company brought in a South Dakota-based engineer with expertise in such accidents to help federal safety investigators on the scene. Over the past four decades, there have more than 600 explosions at grain elevators, killing more than 250 people and injuring more than 1,000, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Just last year, there were grain explosions or fires in several states including In Nebraska, Illinois, Ohio, South Dakota and Louisiana. None were fatal, but several sent workers scrambling and one in Toledo, Ohio in September 2010 forced people to evacuate from a nearby mobile home park.

ies from either the state or federal levels. Moreland is responsible for writing those grants. She recently completed a new application but she said she worries about the funding with the budget cutbacks. Typically, those offering grants want to know who is involved with the MRC, what their qualifications are and how the money will be utilized. “They also are asking for your specific departments, mission statements, goals, objectives - they just really want (the MRC) to be operating as a company,” she said. “They want to ensure that you have a handle on the operations.” Moreland became involved with the MRC when she answered an advertisement in the newspaper. She said the position appealed to her because she wanted to give back to her community in an important way. It did not require a lot of hours (six) per week once the training was
completed. She also pointed out she has never regretted the decision. “Once something happens, going through that drill and seeing how everybody works together, it is amazing,” she said. “It’s that good feeling of being a volunteer. All the folks when they are working together, whether they are medical or non, they all have that one mind set of helping the community.” Moreland said the Van Wert County Medical Reserve Corps will hold informational meetings for interested residents from 4-6 p.m. on Sunday and from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Nov. 9 at the Van Wert County Health Department office on Westwood Drive. Applications will be available, as will personnel to answer questions about the responsibilities. Previous volunteers will also be invited in so they can be registered on the national database.

Preacher gives children tricks instead of treats
HILLSBORO (AP) — A southwest Ohio pastor has apologized for giving trickor-treaters comic-book style pamphlets about fearing God. The Hillsboro TimesGazette reports that at least one parent complained about a pamphlet titled “Mean Momma” in which three children die, one by hanging himself. The Rev. Kenny Cousar of the Northview Baptist Church says his church was careless and he “deeply apologizes.” He says the pamphlet was inappropriate for small children, and that his church doesn’t preach such “scare tactics.” He says the church annually gives out religious tracts for Halloween; usually getting a good response. The church’s Facebook page indicates 2,200 pamphlets were given by church members to trick-or-treaters. Parent C.J. Rooks says she was shocked when she saw what her 3- and 4-yearold children were given last Thursday night.
wife to Children die while agency Ohio man expects in Tennessee return when freed underfunded, understaffed
CINCINNATI (AP) — A newspaper reports that $30 million in funding cuts and a 48 percent reduction in staff in recent years have led to case overloads and other problems at the Cincinnati-area children’s services agency that has seen three toddlers die in 10 months. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Sunday that interviews and a review of records show the Hamilton County Job and Family Services is overburdened and lacks oversight, support staff and needed technology. The newspaper review comes as the agency undergoes an independent review and days after a prosecutor said he’d seek the death penalty against a Cincinnati father accused in the abuse death earlier this month of his 2-year-old son, who had been reunited with his birth parents in August after nearly 2 years in foster care. The Enquirer finds that two additional toddlers have died since December despite By ANN SANNER Associated Press intervention from Hamilton County workers: The father of one boy, who was almost 3, has been charged with murder and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty; no charges have been filed in the death of a seven-month-old child in foster care, though a coroner said the baby suffered obvious abuse. A total of 10 children with cases through the agency have died over the past eight years, the review showed. Staffing in the division has dropped 48 percent since 2008, from 460 to 240. Last year, employees answered more than 66,000 calls to the county emergency abuse hotline and assisted about 16,000 children. The newspaper says that the agency is helping one in 13 county children at any given time, with each caseworker handling up to 20 children, nearly double the amount recommended by an advocacy group. “Basically, we’re all doing twice as much work with half the resources,” county social worker Myra Wheeler tells the newspaper. “Something has to go. It’s mathematics.” Job and Family Services director Moira Weir said a levy up for renewal on next week’s election will help the Children’s Services division reach a 2012 budget of $71 million, $4 million less than last year and $30 million less than 2007. The renewal would bring in about $39 million annually and if it doesn’t pass “it would be a crisis for kids,” said County Board President Greg Hartmann. The previous levy brought in about $41 million a year. Giving the agency less money “would create significant risk for the children of Hamilton County,” according to The United Way of Greater Cincinnati. Weir said the agency will never close its doors to children and will have to work with what it’s given. But, she said, “We’ve cut everywhere we can.” COLUMBUS (AP) — It’s been more than 9 years since his wife was revealed as a Tennessee prison escapee convicted of murder, but Daryl McCartor is ready to embrace her and return her to the Ohio home where she lived under an alias for more than 3 decades. McCartor, of Grove City, expects to pick up Margo Freshwater this week, when she’s expected to be legitimately freed from a Tennessee lockup based on a plea deal she entered Friday. “We married for better or worse,” McCartor told The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit. ly/tqEP0V). “The worse came first. Now, we’re looking forward to the better.” McCartor, 64, married Freshwater just 18 months before authorities tracked her down living as Tonya McCartor in 2002 and returned her to Tennessee. When back together, the couple plan to make a home and to legally change her first name to Tonya, the only name he knows her by and the only one he calls her. “When I met her and married her, I knew she was a good person,” McCartor said. “I was completely shocked to learn she was a fugitive ... but, it didn’t shake my belief in her and the fact she couldn’t have committed what she was charged with.” Under Freshwater’s deal with prosecutors in Memphis, she entered a “best interest” guilty plea and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. With credit for time served and good behavior, her lawyer expects her to be released within days. The opportunity that opened up when an appeals
COLUMBUS (AP) — The tattoo parlor owner whose purchase of Ohio State University football memorabilia triggered a far-reaching scandal and an ongoing NCAA investigation could serve his prison sentence close to home. Edward Rife has been sentenced to three years in prison following his conviction this year on drug trafficking and money laundering charges. The 31-year-old Rife wants to do his time at a minimum security federal prison in Morgantown, W. Va., about four hours from his home in Columbus, and participate in a substance abuse counseling program there. U.S. District Court Judge Gregory Frost last week agreed to recommend the placement to the Bureau of Prisons, where a spokesman says the judge’s request will be considered along with other factors. Rife faced no charges related to the scandal.

Q&A: A look at Ohio’s crackdown on wild animals
COLUMBUS — Ohio Gov. John Kasich has put in place temporary measures to crack down on private ownership of dangerous wild animals while tougher laws are written this fall. Some animal owner groups welcomed the order, though others have blasted it as not going far enough. Critics, including the Humane Society of the United States, say they would have preferred a ban on the purchase and sale of exotic animals. That’s what Kasich’s Democratic predecessor, former Gov. Ted Strickland, ordered before leaving office in January. Sparring over Kasich’s approach comes after dozens of lions, bears and tigers were shot to death by police in Zanesville two weeks ago after their owner freed them and then killed himself. A look at some of the questions and answers surrounding the first-term Republican’s executive order: Q: Does the Kasich’s order ban the ownership of exotic animals, such as tigers and lions? A: No. Under his executive order issued Oct. 21, the state will work with health departments and humane societies to better enforce existing laws. Kasich has directed the state’s Department of Agriculture to try to temporarily halt auction sales of wild animals and to shut down unlicensed auctions. He’s also ordered a review of the existing state permits issued to people who own wild animals. By contrast, Strickland’s order called for a ban on the future ownership, breeding, sale, trade or barter of wild animals. Under his plan, Ohioans who already owned exotic pets would have had to register them with the state, and they would have been barred from breeding or selling their boas, chimpanzees, tigers and other wild animals. Q: How long does an executive order last? A: That depends on when the governor specifies. Strickland’s order was effective for 90 days and it included emergency rules. Kasich’s order is set to run out on his last day in office, though he can end it before then. An order is typically used to put policies in place immediately. Q: What happened to Strickland’s order? A: It expired in April along with its emergency rules. The former governor issued the order in January, just days before leaving office. Kasich did not renew the order. His administration’s lawyers say the state’s Division of Wildlife did not have the legal authority to enforce the directive. The division handles native wildlife, such as deer, certain bears and raccoons — not non-native animals, such as lions and tigers. A spokeswoman for the agency says no steps were taken to fulfill Strickland’s directive because counsel advised them legislation was needed before such action could be carried out. Q: What did the Kasich administration do after his predecessor’s order expired? A: The Kasich administration announced in April that a working group of stakeholders would convene to recommend legislation aimed at regulating dangerous wild animals. The group first met in June, and has been meeting monthly. Kasich’s executive order directs the members to provide their framework for a new law no later than Nov. 30. Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols said the working group has not been directed to put Strickland’s ideas into law. But, Nichols said, “It’s a good guide to some of the things we’re thinking about.” Q: Are the working group’s meetings open to the public or media? A: No. Unlike legislative committees or appointed
Halloween decor looks too real
DUBLIN (AP) — An Ohio homeowner has moved a Halloween decoration of a hanging man because police said some found it too realistic and spooky. Officers in the Columbus suburb of Dublin said they received five complaints about the six-foot figure, hanging in a tree close to a road. Police told WSYX-TV that people found the display disturbing and feared that it could cause a traffic accident. The homeowner says Halloween should be creepy and that his decoration was “all in good fun.” But he moved it to a tree closer to his house and away from the street. Where it used to hang, he has placed a sign that says: “less realistic decoration.”
commissions, the working group is not a public body. It does not have policy-making authority. It’s a group of 10 stakeholder organizations that include the Ohio Association of Animal Owners, the Ohio Farm Bureau, the Zoo Association of America and the state’s natural resources department among others. Q: Would either executive order have prevented Ohio animal owner Terry Thompson from keeping and later freeing 56 rare and dangerous wild animals? A: It’s unclear. Strickland’s order could have led to Thompson’s animals being taken away, says Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO, Humane Society of the United States. That’s because Thompson had a previous animal cruelty conviction from 2005, and he would have been in violation of Strickland’s rules had they still been in place on May 1.

court reversed her murder conviction in May, ruling that prosecutors withheld vital evidence in her case. Freshwater, 63, had been convicted in 1969 and sentenced to 99 years in prison in the shooting death of liquor store clerk Hillman Robbins. A year later, she scaled a wall with another prisoner and outran the guards to escape. Robbins was killed in 1966, when prosecutors say Freshwater was an 18-year-old high school dropout having an affair with attorney Glen Nash, 20 years her senior. The two embarked on a three-week robbery and killing spree in Tennessee, Mississippi and Florida that left one person dead in each state, authorities said. Robbins was found dead in a back room of the Memphisarea liquor store with his hands tied behind him and five bullet holes in the back of his head and neck. Bullets from two different guns were found. Freshwater testified at her trial she did not kill anyone but did what Nash told her because he threatened to kill her. Nash was judged insane by courts in all three states and was confined to psychiatric hospitals until 1983. McCartor acknowledges that his wife made a mistake. “She had no idea this guy was nuts,” McCartor said. “She was as much a victim as the people he killed.” A truck driver, McCartor said he’s made the six-hour drive to the Tennessee Prison for Women in Nashville every month to visit his wife. “My wife and I had nothing but our devotion to each other to get us through this past decade,” he said.

“Success is a public affair. Failure is a private funeral.” — Rosalind Russell, American actress (1911-1976)
More war zone crimes are being prosecuted
By PAULINE JELINEK Associated Press WASHINGTON — A Marine in Iraq sent home $43,000 in stolen cash by hiding it in a footlocker among American flags. A soldier shipped thousands more concealed in a toy stuffed animal. An embassy employee tricked the State Department into wiring $240,000 into his foreign bank account. As the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wind down, the number of people indicted and convicted by the U.S. for bribery, theft and other reconstruction-related crimes in both countries is rapidly rising, according to two government reports released Sunday. “Investigators and auditors had a productive quarter,” said a report on the theft of Afghanistan aid by Steven Trent, who holds the same job for Afghanistan. His report covered August through October. In the past 13 months U.S. investigators in Iraq secured the indictments of 22 people for alleged aid-related offenses, bringing to 69 the total since the SIGIR office was created in 2004. Convictions stand at 57. Several hundred more suspects are under scrutiny in 102 open investigations and those numbers are expected to climb. The rise in caseloads derives partly from spinoff By DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press investigations, where suspects facing prosecution lead investigators to other suspects, said Jon Novak, SIGIR’s assistant inspector general for investigations. “More and more people are ratting out their associates,” he said, turning in conspirators who helped launder money after it was stolen, others who were aware of it and others implicated in the crimes. As investigators gain experience, they’re received better information from a growing network of sources in Iraq, said Dan Willkens, Novak’s deputy. Development of an automated data-mining system for investigations has helped, he said, as did a decision two years ago to speed prosecutions by hiring three former assistant U.S. attorneys and detailing them to the Department of Justice. At the inspector general’s office for Afghan reconstruction, created in 2008, officials report only nine indictments and seven convictions so far. They say they’re trying to ramp up after years of upheaval and charges the office was mismanaged. Trent was named acting inspector general after his predecessor left in August and is the third person to hold the job. Still, Trent reported that during the last quarter, an investigation initiated by his office netted the largest bribery case in Afghanistan’s 10-year war.

Obama cites income gap to push stalled jobs bill
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is banking on a new report detailing the income disparity in the country as further evidence of the need for his $447 billion jobs bill. A report this past week by the Congressional Budget Office found that average after-tax income for the top 1 percent of U.S. households had increased by 275 percent over the past three decades. Middle-income households saw just a 40 percent rise. For those at the bottom of the economic scale, the jump was 18 percent. Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday that he would pay for his jobs plan with an added tax on people who make at least $1 million a year. Senate Republicans have blocked action on the bill, which mixes tax breaks for businesses and public works spending, because they oppose much of the increased spending and the tax on millionaires. “These are the same folks who have seen their incomes go up so much, and I believe this is a contribution they’re willing to make,” Obama said. By SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science Writer “Unfortunately, Republicans in Congress aren’t paying attention. They’re not getting the message.” Obama is now trying to get Congress to pass the individual components of the bill. But Senate Republicans also stalled progress on the first of those measures, $35 billion to help local governments keep teachers on the job and pay the salaries of police officers, firefighters and other emergency services workers. Saying the country cannot wait for Congress, Obama has begun bypassing Congress and taking steps on his own that he says will encourage economic growth. On Friday, Obama directed government agencies to shorten the time it takes for federal research to turn into commercial products in the marketplace. The goal is to help startup companies and small businesses create jobs and expand their operations more quickly. The president also called for creating a centralized online site for companies to easily find information about federal services. He previously had announced help for people who owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth and for the repayment of student loans. The
A former Army Reserve captain, Sidharth “Tony” Handa of Charlotte, N.C., was convicted, sentenced to prison and fined for soliciting $1.3 million in bribes from contractors working on reconstruction projects. Most crimes uncovered by U.S. investigators in the two war zones include bribery, kickbacks and theft, inspired in part by the deep and pervasive cultures of corruption indigenous to the countries themselves. Among some of the cases listed in the reports were those of: Gunnery Sgt. Eric Hamilton, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy in what prosecutors say was a scheme to help Iraqi contractors steal 70 generators that were meant to supply electricity for fellow Marines. He sent some of their payments home in a footlocker and had other money wired, the report said. Several U.S. government employees, who received kickbacks for steering contracts to local conspirators and providing inside information to people competing for contracts. A former army sergeant, who was not identified, is charged with pocketing more than $12,000 in cash that a contractor never picked up after the money was allegedly stolen by another army sergeant and mailed to California inside a stuffed animal.
Skeptic finds he now agrees global warming is real
WASHINGTON — A prominent physicist and skeptic of global warming spent two years trying to find out if mainstream climate scientists were wrong. In the end, he determined they were right: Temperatures really are rising rapidly. The study of the world’s surface temperatures by Richard Muller was partially bankrolled by a foundation connected to global warming deniers. He pursued long-held skeptic theories in analyzing the data. He was spurred to action because of “Climategate,” a British scandal involving hacked emails of scientists. Yet he found that the land is 1.6 degrees warmer than in the 1950s. Those numbers from Muller, who works at the University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, match those by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA. He said he went even further back, studying readings from Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. His ultimate finding of a warming world, to be presented at a conference today, is no different from what mainstream climate scientists have been saying for decades. What’s different, and why everyone from opinion columnists to “The Daily Show” is paying attention is who is behind the study. One-quarter of the $600,000 to do the research came from the Charles Koch Foundation, whose founder is a major funder of skeptic groups and the tea party. The Koch brothers, Charles and David, run a large privately held company involved in oil and other industries, producing sizable greenhouse gas emissions. Muller’s research team carefully examined two chief criticisms by skeptics. One is that weather stations are unreliable; the other is that cities, which create heat islands, were skewing the temperature analysis. “The skeptics raised valid points and everybody should have been a skeptic two years ago,” Muller said in a telephone interview. “And now we have confidence that the temperature rise that had previously been reported had been done without bias.” Muller said that he came into the study “with a proper skepticism,” something scientists “should always have. I was somewhat bothered by
White House also challenged community health centers to hire veterans. “We can no longer wait for Congress to do its job,” Obama said. “So where Congress won’t act, I will.” The congressional report, based on Internal Revenue Service and Census Bureau data, was released as the Occupy Wall Street movement spreading across the country protests bailouts for corporations and the income gap. In the weekly GOP message, Illinois Rep. Bobby Schilling urged Obama to support bills that Republicans say would help create jobs by blocking various energy and environmental regulations and streamlining administrative procedures. The bills, passed by the Republican-controlled House, await action in the Democratic-run Senate. Shilling said the bills give the White House and Congress an opportunity to build on the common ground created by the passage of recent free-trade agreements, and a measure to void a law requiring federal, state and many local governments to withhold 3 percent of their payments to contractors until their taxes are paid. Obama included repealing that tax in his jobs plan. the fact that there was not enough skepticism” before. There is no reason now to be a skeptic about steadily increasing temperatures, Muller wrote recently in The Wall Street Journal’s editorial pages, a place friendly to skeptics. Muller did not address in his research the cause of global warming. The overwhelming majority of climate scientists say it’s man-made from the burning of fossil fuels such as coal and oil. Nor did his study look at ocean warming, future warming and how much of a threat to mankind climate change might be. Still, Muller said it makes sense to reduce the carbon dioxide created by fossil fuels. “Greenhouse gases could have a disastrous impact on the world,” he said. Still, he contends that threat is not as proven as the Nobel Prizewinning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says it is. Today, Muller was taking his results — four separate papers that are not yet published or peer-reviewed, but will be, he says — to a conference in Santa Fe, N.M., expected to include many prominent skeptics as well as mainstream scientists.

By JIM METCALFE firstname.lastname@example.org TIFFIN — It’s preferable for a whole team to make it to the State Cross Country Meet. The Van Wert boys did so, finishing third — the top four move on to the championships at National Trail Raceway in Hebron — in the Division II race at Saturday’s Tiffin Regional held at Hedges-Boyer Park. “Our big 3 — Jared (Fleming; 3rd), Connor (Holiday; 10th) and Jon (Kase Schalois, 23rd) — stayed with St. Vincent’s top 3. Where we fell off was our fourth and fifth runners, something that we have to work on this week in practice,” Cougar head man Brendon Moody noted. “When you consider that five of our top seven are underclassmen, it’s a great accomplishment against such a stellar field. They had nine state-ranked teams here and five of them are going on; we feel fortunate.” There was no luck involved in this one, though. “For the first time all season, all seven of our runners were under 18 minutes. With the course the way it was: muddy and slippery overall; that was pretty fast,” Moody acknowledged, “I don’t think I could have expected them to run any better today.” Moody’s girls, though, only had one of their crew — sophomore Andi Foster — advance, finishing eighth in that race. “We had such a tough field: you had nine state-ranked teams, including three traditional powerhouses from Northeast Ohio, weakening that regional,” Moody added. “It’s sad because they now have at least three teams that are going to state that we’d have likely beaten. I feel bad for the girls over but happy that Andi could make it. She deserved it.” Foster is also happy but sad at the same time. “I’m happy I could advance; I’d raced here this year at the Tiffin Carnival earlier this fall and was familiar with the course,” Foster noted. “It was a little different today because there were certain parts of the park that were under water or too muddy to get through but generally, I was familiar. “At the same time, I am sad; it will be much different to race without my teammates. I am sure they will practice with me this week, though some have other sports to start on. It will be tough when the gun goes off next Saturday.” Two other individuals clinched a berth: Kalida junior Jessica Doepker, who ended up fourth in the Division IIII girls race to begin the day; and Crestview freshman Mycah Grandstaff, grabbing 10th in the Division III boys. After finished 16th last fall in the state meet, Doepker wants even more this time around. “I didn’t know what to expect last year and did pretty well. I know what to expect now and I want top 15, to get something,” Doepker noted. “I was a little nervous Saturday because there are a lot of good runners that could have denied me the chance to advance but I ran well. My times have been going down; I’ve been preparing for this all season. “I don’t expect as many nerves this week or Saturday.” Grandstaff beat his mentor, Joel Genter, who just missed advancing with a 17th-place clocking (top 16 move on). “I have been trying to run with him and learn from him. Generally, he has beaten me until today,” Grandstaff noted. “I usually try to stay with him but since I was ahead of him most of the time, I tried to stay with St. Henry’s No. 1 (Hemmelgarn) and figured if I did, I had a great chance to move on.” He will be the only Knight to race next week as the boys team was 11th. “We’re a young team overall and it was a great experience for us to have another week to race, as it was this week,” head man Mark Bagley explained. “It was another week for the guys to work at running a cross country race and get better, not only for this week but into next year. We got to participate in a very competitive field and go through the emotions of running at the Regionals, especially on an already-tough course that was very muddy and slippery.” Brian McMichael’s Spencerville girls unit finished sixth and sole boys runner boys Aaron Hefner was 25th. “This course was 20-30 seconds slower today because of the conditions; the times were good but no one had a great time. Those that ran here in the Tiffin Carnival earlier — which we didn’t — had a definite advantage,” he noted. “This was a course where you needed to be a quick and strong; you needed to be a mudder to get through those tough spots, which there were a number of them. “Overall, though, we ran well; it just wasn’t good enough for us to move on. We only lose two seniors from the girls: Alexa Brown and Courtney Miller. They have been solid runners for us through their careers. The good is that we had a lot of younger girls gain valuable experience here today. You can’t replace that. This was Aaron’s first year of running cross country. As a junior, he will be back and will benefit from being here.” The Lancer boys ended up 13th, with no one moving on to next week. “That was our goal; get here to regionals. It was a far different race that most of them had ever experienced,” head coach Matt Langdon said. “You learn something about the type of intensity and focus you have to have to do well on a tough course and with the tough competition that we saw today — and usually see. We had a lot of younger guys that can learn from this and work hard to not only get back here but do even better.” Kalida senior Connor Schmenk ended his scholastic running career 48th at the Youngstown Regional. “It was a very interesting day; the

She finished eighth in the Division II girls race to move on to state next Saturday. course was a mess because of all the wet weather previously, plus it rained during the morning,” head coach Scott Miller noted. “This was the first time we had any boy get this far. He ran a good time, not a great one, but ran well considering the conditions.” Lady Lancer Kerri Grothaus finished 63rd at the girls Division III race at Troy. “She was the only girl from the school to race there, so that makes it tougher; racing by yourself,” Langdon added. “That takes some time to get used to and the field doesn’t allow that; it took her a while to get used to it but by then, it’s tough to catch up. Unfortunately, she is a senior but it’s a nice way to end your career; at the regionals. The only thing better is to make it to state.” The Columbus Grove boys, led by the 13th-place finish of Jake Graham and the 16th of Alex Shafer at Youngstown, made it to state as a team, finishing fourth. Colton Grothaus was 32nd, Jerry Kesselmeyer 55th, Grant Schroeder 79th, Nick Schmiesing 97th and Josh Stephens 98th. Everything begins 11:05 Saturday.

Kalida boys advance to soccer regionals
By Charlie Warnimont Delphos Herald Correspondent WAPAKONETA – In tournament soccer, nothing is ever easy. Although Kalida’s boys were outplaying Lima Central Catholic, they were unable to sneak a shot past the Thunderbird keeper. That was until the second half. Kalida managed a goal early in the second half and made it stand up in a 1-0 win over the T-Birds in the Division III district finals at Wapakoneta’s Ryan Field. The win sends the Wildcats (17-2) to the Division III regional semifinals Tuesday night at Findlay against topranked Ottawa Hills. The contest will start at 7 p.m. While the two teams’ defenses stood out in the opening 40 minutes, much of contest was played on Kalida’s side of the field. The Wildcats had a 9-1 edge in shots on-goal but had nothing to show for it as the two teams were deadlocked at 0-0. Kalida’s first-half shots ongoal saw them go wide, over the bar, or into the waiting arms of LCC keeper Ben Stechschulte. Stechschute had four saves the first half, while Kalida keeper Drew Stechschute didn’t have a save. The T-Birds’ only shot of the first half came in the final two minutes when Nolan Burkholder sent a header, off a crossing pass, over the crossbar. “We told the kids at halftime to stay positive,” Kalida coach Mark Czubik said, “and to keep working hard. We told the guys we were getting opportunities but a lot of them were right at their goalie. We said basically can you just show a little more composure and finish.” That happened for the Wildcats just under three minutes into the second half. Kalida was able to make a push at the LCC goal down the right side of the field. Senior Kevan Unverferth took a pass on the right side of the penalty box and pushed the ball to the left side of the box. Fellow senior Tyler Erhart was making his run from that side of the field and got a foot on the ball, knocking it past the LCC keeper with 37:01 left to play. “Kevan played a great through ball to Tyler Erhart and Tyler calmly put the ball into the corner of the goal. That was all we had been asking of the kids,” Czubik said. Kalida had a chance to go up 2-0 minutes later when Erhart put another shot on-goal. The ball was deflected away by a T-Bird defender and over the inline. The Wildcats set up for a corner kick that was headed away by an LCC defender. The Wildcats had three more good shots on-goal in the half as Cody Schnipke and

Ian Richey launched shots on the goal that Stechschulte grabbed. A shot by Unverferth late in the contest went wide. “We had a lot of opportunities but give LCC credit; their kids played fantastic,” Czubik added. “Stechschulte was strong in goal. You have to tip your cap to them because they hung in there all day long. They didn’t have a lot of opportunities but they just kept hanging in there.” And now the Wildcats will have a short time to savor their first trip to the regionals in 10 years as they prepare for Ottawa Hills. “It feels great. It has been 10 years,” Czubik ended. “We’ve had some really good teams in the past that unfortunately were unable to break through. I’ve always told the kids you need some luck and in our first two games, we had a little bit of luck. Fortunately, the ball bounced our way today.”

T-Birds upset LadyCats in girls soccer district
By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald email@example.com LIMA — Kalida Lady Wildcats were no strangers to overtime matches in this year’s soccer tournament; after all, they defeated Ottoville in a shootout in sectionals. On Saturday afternoon at Lima Stadium, the Wildcats found themselves in a similar situation; after 80 minutes in their Division III district final against Lima Central Catholic, it was tied at 0-0. It remained that way through one overtime and through 14 minutes of the second until T-Bird freshman Sydney Santaguida’s left-footed shot slipped past the Kalida goalkeeper, Erika Brinkman, and into the net to give LCC a shocking 1-0 victory and its first district title in the school’s history. Santaguida’s shot came with exactly one minute left in the second overtime; the ball took a weird twist on the Lima Stadium turf and appeared to hit off of Brinkman’s forearm and into the goal. The match had a bit of everything: a venue change from Bath High School due to field conditions; a mixture of rain, snow and sunshine; and two defenses that refused to give. Kalida had a goal earlier in regulation
nullified on an offsides call. The Wildcats had the majority of chances in the first 40 minutes of play but LCC goalkeeper Jayna Clemens turned away each effort On the other end of the pitch, Brinkman’s job was easy as the Thunderbirds were denied a shot on-goal as sweeper Kaylyn Verhoff was a brick wall. The second half brought more intensity and a change of atmosphere as the rain/ snow/sleet/sunshine (all four at one time) came pouring down. LCC picked up two yellow cards in the second 40 minutes of action. In the first overtime, the Wildcats got the first real attempt at bringing the game to an end when Makenna Vorst sent a shot in from 35 yards out but it hit the post and went across the goal line. That was followed up by another opportunity for the LadyCats. Makenna Vorst booted a shot with 12:39 to go but it just hit the curve of the crossbar. With 1:42 to go, Clemens made a matchsaving save off a Justine Vorst attempt. Kalida ends its season at 14-2-3, while the Thunderbirds move to 13-3-3 and take on the winner of Archbold-Genoa Area on Wednesday at Ottawa Hills High School.

Various ‘7 billionth’ babies celebrated worldwide
By JIM GOMEZ and TIM SULLIVAN The Associated Press MANILA, Philippines — She came into the world at two minutes before midnight, a tiny, wrinkled girl born into a struggling Manila family. Today, she became a symbol of the world’s population reaching 7 billion people and all the worries that entails for the planet’s future. Danica May Camacho, born in a crowded public hospital, was welcomed with a chocolate cake marked “7B Philippines” and a gift certificate for free shoes. There were bursts of photographers’ flashes, and speeches by local officials. The celebrations, though, reflected symbolism more than demography. Amid the millions of births and deaths around the world each day, it is impossible to pinpoint the arrival of the globe’s 7 billionth occupant. But the U.N. chose today to mark the day with a string of festivities worldwide, and a series of symbolic 7-billionth babies being born. Danica was the first, arriving at Manila’s Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital at two minutes before midnight Sunday — but doctors say that was close enough to count for a Monday birthday. “She looks so lovely,” the mother, Camille Galura, whispered as she cradled the 2.5-kilo (5.5-pound) baby,
“Seven billion is a number we should think about deeply. We should really focus on the question of whether there will be food, clean water, shelter, education and a decent life for every child. If the answer is ’no,’ it would be better for people to look at easing this population explosion.”
— Dr. Eric Tayag, Philippines’ Department of Health who was born about a month premature. The baby was the second for Galura and her partner, Florante Camacho, a driver who supports the family on a tiny salary driving a ’jeepney,’ ubiquitous fourwheel drive vehicles used by many poor and working-class Filipinos. Dr. Eric Tayag of the Philippines’ Department of Health said later that the birth came with a warning. “Seven billion is a number we should think about deeply,” he said. “We should really focus on the question of whether there will be food, clean water, shelter, education and a decent life for every child,” he said. “If the answer is ’no,’ it would be better for people to look at easing this population explosion.” In the Philippines, much of the population question revolves around birth control. The government backs a program that includes artificial birth control. The powerful Roman Catholic church, though, vehemently opposes contraception. Camacho, a Catholic like her husband, said she was aware of the church’s position but had decided to begin using a birth control device. “The number of homeless children I see on the streets keeps multiplying,” Camacho said. “When I see them, I’m bothered because I eat and maybe they don’t.” Demographers say it took until 1804 for the world to reach its first billion people, and a century more until it hit 2 billion in 1927. The twentieth century, though, saw things begin to cascade: 3 billion in 1959; 4 billion in 1974; 5 billion in 1987; 6 billion in 1998. The U.N. estimates the world’s population will reach 8 billion by 2025 and 10 billion by 2083. But the numbers could vary widely, depending on everything from life expectancy to access to birth control to infant mortality rates. In Uttar Pradesh, India — the most populous state in the world’s second-most populous country — officials said today they would be appointing seven girls born today to symbolize the 7 billion. India, which struggles with a deeply held preference for sons and a skewed sex ratio because of millions of aborted female fetuses, is using the day to highlight that issue.

“It would be a fitting moment if the 7 billionth baby is a girl born in rural India,” said Dr Madhu Gupta, an Uttar Pradesh gynecologist. “It would help in bringing the global focus back on girls, who are subject to inequality and bias.” According to U.S. government estimates, India has 893 girls for every 1,000 boys at birth, compared with 955 girls per 1,000 boys in the United States. Today, the chosen Indian babies were being born at the government-run Community Health Center in the town of Mall, on the outskirts of the Uttar Pradesh capital of Lucknow. Six babies were born from midnight to 8 a.m. today. Four were boys. Meanwhile China, which at 1.34 billion people is the world’s most populous nation, said it would stand by its one-child policy, a set of restrictions launched three decades ago limiting most urban families to one child and most rural families to two. “Overpopulation remains one of the major challenges to social and economic development,” Li Bin, director of the State Population and Family Planning Commission, told the official Xinhua News Agency. He said the population of China would hit 1.45 billion in 2020. While the Beijing government says its strict family planning policy has helped propel the country’s rapidly growing economy, it has also brought many problems. Soon, demographers say, there won’t be enough young Chinese to support its enormous elderly population. China, like India, also has a highly skewed sex ratio, with aid groups saying sex-selective abortions have resulted in an estimated 43 million fewer girls than there should be, given the overall population. India, with 1.2 billion people, is expected to overtake China around 2030 when the Indian population reaches an estimated 1.6 billion.

The art of
Concealment, though it is often confused with camouflage, is really much more. You cannot simply go out and buy high-quality camouflage and expect to remain concealed. Concealment is the skill or art of keeping from being seen, found, discovered or observed; camouflage is just one step in concealment. For this article we will use the example of a deer hunt, we will discuss how to keep concealed in different types of hunts, and how to place yourself in a position to get a good shot. There are typically 3 different types of deer hunting. Stationary hunting typically from a tree stand or blind is a method often used for bow hunting. The “Scope and Stalk” method also known as the “Sniper” Method is used by bow hunters and rifle hunters alike. The “drive” or walking hunt is typically used by larger hunting parties using rifles. Since it is not typically the objective of the driving hunt to remain camouflaged or concealed, we will not discuss the “drive” in this article. We have already touched briefly on camouflage, and will return to it again later. When practicing concealment consider all of the senses your target has available, sight, scent and hearing are the most powerful ones.
With the wind in their favor deer can smell a human well over a mile away. There are “scent blockers” that may help, but the best result will always come when you position yourself downwind of the deer. This means walking into the wind, stalking into the wind and positioning your tree-stand such that your most likely shooting opportunity will be upwind. Exercising a little common sense with regards to wind direction has now brought you well within the one mile zone of your prey. The next two challenges are really equally important; How do you beat the deer’s sight and hearing. It may be easier than you think, everything in nature moves and makes noise, so “if you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em”. Be as quiet as you can, but don’t be afraid to make a little noise. Just make the right type of noise at the right time. Listen for a wind gust blowing up through the tree tops and move when the background noise is near its peak. Watch how a deer moves, a couple steps and a pause, a few more steps and a pause. Constant evenly paced foot steps will give you away like a marching band. Be aware of your surrounding and make your noises appear natural.

Necessary Hunting Items
By Richard Johnson, courtesy of huntingusa.com
There are certain items that any hunter should take with him into the feild. These items can make any hunt more enjoyable and more productive. The first item on the list is a weapon you can trust. This is probably the most important peice of equipment you have. This must be a weapon that you have practiced a lot with. You must know your limits with the weapon. Also, you must be accurate with your weapon. There is no point in even hunting if you don’t intend on a quick, clean kill. Anyone who intends just to wound an animal can not call themselves a hunter. So you must have a weapon that you can trust. The second item on the list is a good pair of binoculars. These are great for locating deer at long ranges. It is essential that you locate the deer before the deer locates you. Remember when buying binoculars that they will be around your neck for a long time. So buy light binoculars with great magnification. Another item that is necessary to have is a backpack or a fannypack. Both of these are great for keeping your hunting items together while you are in the field. This also helps you from losing things in the woods. This is the best way to transport all of your items into and out of the woods. It is also great for keeping items you might not use, but still want to have, together. The next thing on the list is comfortable boots. These are a must no matter what kind of hunting you are doing. And if you hunt in cold weather, you will need warm boots. Usually your feet are the first thing to get cold. When you buy a new pair of boots, walk around with them outside for a little bit before you take them to the field. Uncomfortable feet just leads to a hunt that ends earlier than you would like. (See ITEMS page 2B)

Share the bounty
There are several organizations in Ohio fighting hunger by helping hunters donate a portion or all of their venison to folks who need it. The Division of Wildlife wishes to thank the Ohio hunter for making a difference by donating your venison to the hungry of our state. Farmers And Hunters Feeding The Hungry (FHFH) is an outreach ministry called upon to help feed venison and other big game to the hungry among us. This program began in 1997 and continues to grow, with representation in more than one-half of the United States. To make a donation, contact FHFH. Go to the national web site (www.fhfh.org), go to Donate Deer, select Ohio from the list of states, and find an active chapter near you. Look at the processors available for that chapter. Each chapter has a contact person and the processor’s name and address. Venison donated to food banks must be processed by a local or state-inspected and

insured meat processor who is participating with FHFH. Hunters wishing to donate their deer to a food bank are not required to pay for the processing of the venison as long as the program has funds available to cover the cost. A subsidy grant from the Division of Wildlife was awarded to FHFH to help with the costs of venison processing. Sportsmen Against Hunger This program helps share nature’s bounty with the hungry. This program is active in all 50 states of the U.S., in parts of Canada, and in several countries around the world. Deer hunters wishing to help fight hunger and homedeer that are completely unaware of your presence. Deer in transition between night feeding and morning bedding or between daytime bedding and evening feeding are great targets. They are not spooked, typically a combination of walking and standing until they get to the feeding grounds. When you are in a tree-stand or in a blind you cannot move so location is critical. It is a good idea to scout out several locations that may be effective in different wind. Remember nature is lazy, much like water deer will follow low lying areas as long as possible. Position yourself at a natural bottle-neck in the terrain, where two or more coulees converge or where a stand of trees is narrowed by hills, water, agricultural development, etc. Another option is to place yourself at the edge of the cover near the feeding area. Deer will often walk to the edge of the cover and stand for minutes at a time before they are comfortable enough to break cover and feed. This can provide some
lessness may donate venison to Ohio food pantries by contacting Safari Club International on their Web site (www.safariclubfoundation.org) under Sportsmen Against Hunger. Deer meat will be accepted during any of the Ohio deer seasons. Whitetails Unlimited Whitetails Unlimited (WTU) is a national nonprofit organization with over 30 chapters in Ohio. WTU’s purpose is to raise funds in support of education, habitat conservation, and the preservation of the hunting tra-
dition for the direct benefit of the white-tailed deer and other wildlife. Local WTU chapters use local funds for programs such as venison donation to the needy, youth archery and shooting sports activities, conservation club grants, and hunting promotion. Go to the national web site (www. whitetailsunlimited.com) to find a local chapter or for info on starting a chapter in your area. You can also call 1-800-274-5471 for more information.
Now we will return to camouflage. When you apply what you have learned so far with the proper application of camouflage you will be a master at concealment. When choosing camouflage, consider the two challenges you are up against with a deer’s sense of sight. The first is color and pattern, choose camouflage pattern that blends well with the surroundings. The second challenge is your profile or silhouette, if your hunting terrain and vegetation allow, a Ghillie Suit is a great way to diffuse or soften your profile. Now that we are all experts in concealment, lets make a practical application of our new skill and some other helpful hunting knowledge. Remember, nature is lazy, water flows down hill, electricity takes the path of least resistance and have you ever seen a cow trail the goes up the steepest side of a hill? No. Keep this in mind when you are hunting. When hunting from a tree stand, the goal is to hunt
exceptional opportunities. The Sniper method is different from hunting in a tree stand in a couple ways, typical Sniper hunting is performed during the day when the deer are not moving. The objecting is to conceal yourself in a position that offers a good viewing range, “scope” or “glass” the surrounding hills especially upwind. If you have not spotted any deer, back down the hill into some low lying gully or coulee, slowly and quietly make your way to a spot you have already scoped and are confident there are no deer. This will put you in a position where you will not disturb any un-scoped hunting ground while offering you a new vantage point to glass your new surroundings. When you have spotted a deer, chances are that it is out of range, this is where the stalk comes into play. Determine where you need to be to have a good shot and plan a route to get there that will keep you out of sight. Keep in mind all of the tips discussed earlier about movement and natural sounding noise and begin the stalk.

you didn’t use a flash light whenever you’re laying in the woods with a broken leg. A little maglight works great for hunting. Use one.
Just be sure to buy boots that you like. If a magazine says buy these boots but you really don’t like them, don’t buy them. But usually the magazines give you accurate information. They must be comfortable to you. This next thing is something that you really need to think about. Which camo pattern is right for the area you are hunting in. A deer will pick out an unnatural blob in the tree right away. You need a pattern that matches your surroundings. First think of what your hunting area is like. Then, go to the camo company’s web site and see what pattern is right for you. Their web sites are great for looking at all the available patterns. You can look at all the patterns in a matter of minutes. After you know what pattern you want, go and buy it. This is just a good way to be sure that you are buying the right pattern. And if you’re still not sure, look at the description of the camo pattern while you’re looking at them on the internet. A flashlight is a must-have when going hunting. It is great to help you get to your stand in the morning and get back home at night. Even if you have walked the same trail a million times, you never know what could have happened. One minute a trail can be completely clear, and the next a tree could have fallen across it. Branches are always falling on the ground in the woods. So you just never know what might be in front of you, unless you see it using your flashlight. You will be sorry
(Continued from page 1B)
As you join thousands of hunters heading into the woods, fields and marshes during the fall hunting seasons, ODNR safety experts remind you to review and think about firearm safety each and every time you head out. Essential to any responsible hunting trip is an ironclad adherence to the four basic rules of firearm safety that can be easily remembered using the TAB-K formula. T = Treat every firearm as if it is loaded. Never assume a firearm is unloaded and never treat it that way, even if you watch as it is unloaded. Make it a habit to treat guns like they are loaded all the time. A = Always point the muzzle in a safe direction. About one third of all hunting incidents are self inflicted injuries. That means the muzzle was pointed at some part of the hunter’s body. A safe direction is a direction where the bullet will travel and harm no one in the event of an unwanted discharge. There are no accidental discharges with firearms, only unwanted discharges. B = Be certain of your target and what’s beyond it. Positive target identification is a must. To shoot at something you only think is a legal target is gambling. In the case of human injury, that means gambling with human life. You must be absolutely certain and correct in judgment before deciding to shoot. Otherwise, it’s reckless behavior. In addition to identifying the target, a hunter must know that a safe backstop for their bullet is present in every shooting situation. We don’t always hit our target, and, in some cases, the bullet passes through the target. A safe backstop guarantees that no one will get hurt. K = Keep your finger outside the trigger guard until ready to shoot. If a hunter stumbles with a firearm in one hand and nothing in the other, whatever that person does with their free hand will automatically happen with the hand holding the gun. If a finger is inside the trigger guard, that hand is likely going to close around the pistol grip of the gun and on the trigger causing an unwanted discharge. Planning your fall hunting trip also means having your gear in proper working order. Firearms should be cleaned and closely inspected for any signs of mechanical wear that could result in a problem in the field. Firearms aren’t the only items that need to be checked well in advance of a hunting trip. Clothing and other equipment should also be inspected for signs of wear and tear. Anything that might cause you to compromise safety should be repaired, discarded or replaced. Blaze orange clothing that has faded over time, a jacket that doesn’t fit right or a scope that isn’t adjusted correctly can compromise your safety and the safety of others. Have a safe and enjoyable hunt!
Four basic rules of firearm safety
• Be wary of permanent treestands made from plywood and pine 2x4s. It is unwise to trust these types of tree stands without checking their structural integrity ahead of time. Falling limbs, wind and moisture weaken permanent treestands over time and make them unsafe. • Always wear a safety harness when hunting from a treestand. Each season, hunters get injured, some seriously, when they fall asleep and take a dive off their treestands, or slip and fall when climbing in or out of the tree. • Wear hunter orange. A hat and vest (or coat) that covers the chest and back area in solid orange is required by law. Orange camouflage is not legal. Hunter orange must also be worn by anyone accompanying a firearms deer hunter. • Be sure of your target before you put your finger on the trigger. Most fatalities are the result of mistaken-forgame accidents. • Don’t trespass on your neighbor, and if you see an unfamiliar hunter in your area, escort him (or her) to your property boundary. Never wave to get another hunter’s attention, speak loudly in a clear voice. • Never cross a fence, ride a 4-wheeler or climb a tree with a loaded rifle. Use a tow rope to pull your rifle up and down from your treestand. • Be careful when dragging out your deer. Each year, hunters die from heart attacks as a result of overexertion. Get help if you can’t handle the chore by yourself. Go slow and take your time. • Tell someone where you are hunting and when you expect to be home if you are hunting alone. Carrying a cell phone is a good safety precaution if you are hunting alone. • Never carry a loaded rifle in your truck or car, and be sure to unload your rifle when you get back to camp or when you stop hunting for the day. Assume that every rifle in camp is loaded unless the action is open and you can see that it’s safe to handle.

Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011 Any yen you have for travel could be satisfied to some degree in the next year. Numerous short trips are indicated in your chart, as well as the possibility of making one journey of considerable distance. sCoRPIo (oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- This could be one of those rare days when, without even trying, an abundance of good ideas pop in your head. The only problem you’ll have is which to implement first. saGITTaRIus (Nov. 23-dec. 21) -- Lucky you, because there is a good chance that something profitable will develop that will be engineered by a good friend working on your behalf. CaPRICoRN (dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Ignore people who try to tell you that your expectations are unduly optimistic and infeasible. They’re wrong. Don’t accept a word they are saying, and follow your own instincts. aQuaRIus (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Many times we are more effective when we keep our intentions to ourselves, and this may be one of those days. Don’t discuss anything with others until the proverbial cat has departed the bag. PIsCes (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Although you aren’t likely to be expecting it, you could learn two valuable lessons about yourself from your past experiences. What you discover will be put to good use. aRIes (March 21-april 19) -This is one day when it really would behoove you to set goals and then go after them. Everything in your chart will be cooperating with whatever it is you plan. TauRus (april 20-May 20) -- You should discuss certain complicated issues that have been dumped in your lap with those whose thinking you respect. Chances are you’ll get a plethora of notions that you can draw upon. GeMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not be able to do the same for yourself, but you are likely to possess a special knack for helping others sort out their financial dilemmas. Don’t hesitate to speak up. CaNCeR (June 21-July 22) -- You have an innate sense of understanding that people, not things, make the world go around. You can use this knowledge to your and everybody else’s benefit. Leo (July 23-aug. 22) -- Being able to select exactly what tasks or assignments you wish to perform will work in your favor, allowing you to pick a job that actually gives you a sense of accomplishment. vIRGo (aug. 23-sept. 22) -- If you have a choice, be selective regarding with whom you choose to socialize. If you don’t pick people who think as you do, the day could end up being a humdinger of a bummer. LIBRa (sept. 23-oct. 23) -- This could be a perfect day to go bargain hunting, especially if you are looking for a big-ticket item that is pertinent to your family’s needs. You may find it at a price you can afford. WedNesday, Nov. 2, 2011 You can enhance your ability to overcome most challenges and adversities in the year ahead by maintaining a positive attitude as often as possible. Doing so will substantially strengthen your ability to get things done. sCoRPIo (oct. 24-Nov. 22) -It might be smart to yield a little on some minor issues in order to avoid locking horns with a family member over a big matter. Give a little to get quite a bit. saGITTaRIus (Nov. 23-dec. 21) -- Because of your reluctance to be forthright about what is bothering you, many of your companions will find you difficult to understand and tolerate. Loosen up a bit. CaPRICoRN (dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Frivolous activities that don’t make any kind of contribution to your material or social well-being shouldn’t be given a whole lot of your time. Don’t make trouble for yourself. aQuaRIus (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your self-image and reputation could suffer greatly if you fail to keep your temper in check, especially when you’re around people you like and respect. Control your ire and you control your image. PIsCes (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you insist upon dwelling on negatives, you’ll elude all possibility of having any success. It’s important to strive to be a positive thinker as much and as often as you can. aRIes (March 21-april 19) -- Keep your snoot out of a friend’s business if you see that she or he is unwilling to share something with you. Everyone is entitled to privacy when they feel it’s warranted. TauRus (april 20-May 20) -- You’re in for a big surprise if you think inflexibility will enhance your negotiating skills. All it will do is cause people to turn their backs on you. GeMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There’s nothing to be gained by spreading yourself too thin where your work is concerned. It will gain you a lot of needless frustration when you can’t complete all that you want to. CaNCeR (June 21-July 22) -- Trying to con a co-worker into doing a job your way will turn into a frustrating experience. If you want things done well, let your colleague call the shots. Leo (July 23-aug. 22) -- Unless you think your way through every step of the day, your gains will be slimmer than a fashion model. If you do things in a haphazard manner, your fragile arrangements will crumble like a misbegotten cookie. vIRGo (aug. 23-sept. 22) -- You had better stay focused on your endeavors because if you don’t, chances are you will make a serious mistake that could require a total, and very expensive, makeover. LIBRa (sept. 23-oct. 23) -- If you intend to go window-shopping at the mall, you’d be smart to leave your credit cards at home. Your resolve to maintain your budget will be weaker than a wet noodle.
