Ohio GOP blocked from new congressional map vote


By JULIE CARR SMYTH The Associated Press and 4 favoring Democrats. The state is losing two congressional seats due to slow population growth. Democrats took Batchelders maneuver as an affront, saying theyd presented him with a map Wednesday night and he rejected it. House Democratic Leader Armond Budish said the proposal was for six Republican districts, four Democratic districts, and six Republican-leaning districts that were split along party lines enough to be competitive. By creating all safe districts, you take the vote away from the people, he said. State Rep. Robert Hagan predicted that enough Democrats would stick together to oppose a vote on the revised map, failing to give Republicans the 66 votes needed to waive House rules and bring their plan up for an immediate vote. The vote on suspending the rules was 58-34. Hagan called the special session a useless exercise. Budish rose during floor debate to criticize the map,

Man killed crossing street


Staff reports DELPHOS An 84-year-old Delphos man died as the result of injuries from a vehicle-pedestrian accident reported at 7 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of North Main Street. Delphos Police reports indicate Dale Miller, 84, of Delphos was crossing Main Street at the same time a vehicle driven by Linda Bailey, 60, of Delphos was traveling northbound on North Main Street. Reports indicate that neither Miller nor Bailey may have seen each other resulting in Miller being struck by the Bailey vehicle. Miller was transported to St. Ritas Medical Center by Delphos EMS, where he was pronounced dead as a result of the injuries he sustained in the accident. The Allen County Coroner reviewed the

No alcohol or drugs are suspected in the accident. No further information was available at press time.

COLUMBUS Ohio Republicans failed in an effort Thursday to bring a second congressional map up for a vote as they sought to defuse Democratic opposition to the states newly adopted map, with shouting erupting on the Ohio House floor over who fairly should represent the battleground state in Washington. Earlier in the day, GOP House Speaker William Batchelder released a revised plan for the states U.S. House districts, saying it was fairer to Democrats and he hoped it will garner support from Democratic legislators.

parents of high school students who may be preparing to take the ACT or SAT college entrance exams. This one comes in the form of a telephone call where the caller claims, due to a new requirement, the student must purchase a kit containing CDs or DVDs, which supposedly prepares the student for the tests. Schools in the area report no such purchase requirement of any such product and have begun the process of notifying parents and students in the region. If anyone has been solicited in this manner, the BBB would like to hear from them at 419-223-7010. BY MIKE FORD mford@delphosherald.com Before going to the polls Tuesday, voters may find interesting how minimal the process behind ballot initiatives like Issue 2 and Issue 3 is and how easy it is to alter the Ohio Constitution. In the case of Issue 1, the legislature wants to amend the document but the law always requires voter approval for it to be amended. Therefore, the general assembly must place it on the ballot. However, when a special interest group, political action committee or forprofit casino operator wants to change the constitution, it must go through a process overseen by two state offices. The person or group who wants to amend the constitution must gather signatures totalling 10 percent of those who voted for governor in the most recent election. The matter later goes to the Ohio Ballot Board, which is part of the secretary of states office. According to its representative, Matt McLellan, Secretary of State Jon Husted can only accept the proposed constitutional amendment. Its language is never subjected to any legal scrutiny, nor is the language even required to be written by a lawyer. The ballot board approves the ballot language and accepts the arguments for and against the issue but the only thing the ballot board can do under the way the law is set up, is accept the language. The ballot board cannot review the language or make changes to the arguments, McLellan said. If a proposed amendment should set the state up for a constitutional crisis, there is little that can be done to prevent it. Dan Tierney of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWines office explains

floor. Theyre trying to pass a bill. Theyre embarrassed by the fact that theyre having two primaries and putting a tremendous amount of weight on the counties at the same time theyre cutting local government, Hagan said. Among key changes, the new map unifies seven counties that were previously split, reduces splits in two counties from three to two and splits one county that was previously whole. It also increases the black votingage populations of urban districts in Dayton, Columbus, Cincinnati and Toledo. Batchelder said he didnt have time to study the Democrats revised map Wednesday night and couldnt call off the Thursday vote. He said he had called one representative back from Virginia and kept another from going duck hunting. Several representatives were in the building but failed to come to the floor, he said. Later Thursday, Hagan issued a statement asking the GOP to donate $7,992.81 to the Second Harvest Food

Banks in Youngstown just declared the most impoverished city in America. That was the cost of the mileage for the wasted session, he said. Batchelder said hell send the bill to the powerful House Rules Committee, with hearing likely starting Monday. A former judge, he said he still holds out hope for a compromise. Democrats launched a petition drive Tuesday aimed at a 2012 repeal of the bill passed in September that established the initial map. They have claimed its gerrymandered to favor the GOP. Democratic Chairman Chris Redfern said hes determined to see Ohio voters get a chance to repeal the existing map and hopefully send a message they want districts to be more evenly split. I fully expect Republicans to try to undermine my referendum effort with passing more new maps and other legislative gimmicks, he said. This vote today was supposed to be a Tonya See MAP, page 2

why: We certify that the measure is true and faithful but as to whether it undergoes any legal scrutiny of any kind, when we certify a summery as true and faithful or reject it as true and faithful, the attorney general does not comment on the advisability of the measure as to whether he would advise it be passed or not, he said. Legal scrutiny is a legal opinion and our office does do that in situations but as to legal scrutiny beyond it being true and faithful, the attorney general has certain statutory duties he is fulfilling when we undergo this review and he is limited to those specific statutory duties. The Ohio Constitution being vulnerable to shenanigans traces back to the state supreme court, according to Tierney. See WHY, page 2

work out a compromise with Democrats. Ohio Senate President Tom Niehaus said senators were getting negative reaction in their districts over the two separate primaries. He had scheduled a tentative floor session in his chamber for Friday, to take up the revised map if it passed. State Rep. Carlton Weddington, a Columbus Democrat who was part of talks over the district boundaries, said he was open to reaching an agreement on the maps, but in the end, there was nothing for us to be in favor of. They (Republicans) stopped negotiating without any further notice, said Weddington. We had made a lot of ground and felt like if they had agreed to the minor, minute changes, we would have had not only seven votes to suspend the rules but several Democratic caucus votes in the upwards of 20-plus members. He said the votes would have come not only from the black caucus, but also from Van Wert Cinemas other Democrats. If they want to be serious about having a bipartisan vote and support for congressional maps, theyll come back to the table and reconsider suggestions we made, Weddington said.

Last day for Ohio in-person early voting

Briefs

From the Vantage Point

STATE/LOCAL

COLUMBUS (AP) Ohioans have their last chance to cast to go to their local elections office to cast an early vote for Tuesdays election. The states top elections official has directed county elections boards to end the early, in-person voting at 6 p.m. today. Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted says the cutoff thats coming sooner than in past years is required by changes to state law. The early voting deadline in previous elections had been the Monday before an election. The change has been contested by Democrats. Elections officials in several counties have reported heavy turnout for early voting. Some have said one reason is interest in statewide ballot issues, including the one that will decide the fate of Ohios law limiting the union rights of public employees.

End comes for elk that wanders northeast Ohio

COLUMBUS (AP) A judge on Thursday granted a request from three AIDS patients to block changes to Ohio rules that they say would drastically reduce eligibility for a government-funded program that pays for HIV and AIDS medications for those in need. The Franklin County Common Pleas court ruling blocks the state Department of Health from implementing the rules pending resolution of a lawsuit the men filed Wednesday. A hearing has been set for Nov. 15. The rules were set to take effect today. The men, who also work as advocates for AIDS patients, argue the new AIDS Drug Assistance Program rules will arbitrarily deny funding for potentially life-saving medications to low-income, uninsured and underinsured Ohioans with HIV or AIDSrelated symptoms.

They will continue to search the facility, specifically the outside grounds, but at this point it seems the information we were provided was not accurate, LoParo said.

PARKMAN (AP) A wandering elk thought to be a fugitive from a Pennsylvania game farm has met its end in northeast Ohio. WKYC-TV of Cleveland reports the large bull elk turned up Wednesday at a mans farm in Geauga County, southeast of Cleveland. The animal was killed after Ohio wildlife officials told the man that taking the elk was legal. Elk are not native to Ohio. The television station reports that those raised in pens can carry disease potentially threatening to Ohios deer herd. Meat from the elk that was killed will be tested. Allen Lea with the Ohio Division of Wildlife says the agency believes the animal escaped from a Pennsylvania game farm more than a month ago and then wandered through several northeast Ohio counties.

Success the main course in Culinary Arts


The Cup and Saucer restaurant at Vantage is the career tech lab for students enrolled in the two-year Culinary Arts program. Students usually arrive in the kitchen with very little experience. By graduation time, they have practiced many different facets of restaurant management, including food safety, meal planning, preparation and serving, as well as front of the house (hospitality and cashiering). Students have the opportunity to become Serve-Safe certified and to receive the ProStart Certificate of Achievement. For those students planning to continue their education in chef training or restaurant management, it serves as an excellent introductory experience. Although this program concentrates on preparing students for careers in hospitality and restaurant services, it is a practical life program too. Students in the Vantage Culinary Arts program get first-hand experience in the kitchen and operating the Cup and Saucer Restaurant. The restaurant is open for lunch on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays each week, seating guests from 11 a.m. to noon. Luncheons for group meetings can also be arranged. Its almost time for the annual Thanksgiving Feast luncheon, prepared by Culinary Arts students. Robin Burns and her class invite everyone to this popular event. It will be held two days this year: from 11 a.m. to noon on Nov. 16 and Nov. 18. This years buffet will include a delicious variety of salads, meats, vegetables,

breads and desserts all for just $8.95. Reservations are necessary for this special event. To reserve a spot, call 419-238-5411, ext. 130.

The medical and financial criteria that are at the heart of these rule changes in Ohio are murder by proxy, plain and simple, Booth said in a statement. An attorney generals spokeswoman was unable to immediately comment after business hours. A telephone message was left after business hours for a health department spokesman. AIDS drugs can cost more than $20,000 annually, and patients often need to take several prescriptions. Drug Assistance Programs operate in all 50 states using both federal and state funds. Several cash-strapped states have recently cut back their programs through steps such as capping enrollment, dropping patients, instituting waiting lists, lowering the income ceiling for eligibility and no longer covering certain drugs or tests. The lawsuit says Ohio rules that were to go into effect today were finalized last month and would allow a further reduction in financial eligibility guidelines and impose medical guidelines to determine waiting list priority. The group says the state has no current waiting list but has had a list as high as 485 within the past year.

CINCINNATI (AP) The Ohio Ethics Commission has thrown out a complaint filed over Twitter comments made against Cincinnatis streetcar project. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the Ohio Ethics Commission dismissed the complaint on Thursday for a technicality: a political action committee was improperly named as defendant. The Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending & Taxes (COAST) was accused of false political advertising by the prostreetcar group Cincinnatians for Progress. It said COAST waged a social media campaign of false statements about a Nov. 8 ballot issue that would block funding for the streetcar project. The group plans to refile its complaint. Still pending is COASTs federal lawsuit challenging the ethics commissions authority, saying it violates the First Amendment by chilling political speech.

Senate GOP blocks Obama infrastructure plan


By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press WASHINGTON Republicans in the Senate Thursday dealt President Barack Obama the third in a string of defeats on his stimulus-style jobs agenda, blocking a $60 billion measure for building and repairing infrastructure like roads and rail lines. Supporters of the failed measure said it would have created tens of thousands of construction jobs and lifted the still-struggling economy. But Republicans unanimously opposed it for its tax surcharge on the wealthy and spending totals they said were too high. The 51-49 vote fell well short of the 60 votes required under Senate procedures to start work on the bill. Every Republican opposed the president, as did Democrat Ben Nelson of Nebraska and former Democrat Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., who still aligns with the party. Obamas loss was anything but a surprise, but the White House and its Democratic allies continue to press popular ideas from Obamas polltested jobs package in what Republicans say is nothing more than a bare-knuckle attempt to gain a political edge by invoking the mantra of jobs but doing little to seek compromise. The truth is, Democrats are more interested in building a campaign message than in rebuilding roads and bridges, said Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. And frankly, the American people deserve a lot better than that. Obama ripped Republicans in an unusually tough statement issued by the White House. The American people deserve to know why their Republican representatives in Washington refuse to put some of the workers hit hardest by the economic downturn back on the job rebuilding America, Obama said. Its time for Republicans in Congress to put country ahead of party and listen to the people they were elected to serve. Its time for them to do their job and focus on Americans jobs. After Republicans blocked Obamas infrastructure plan, the presidents Democratic allies immediately killed a competing GOP infrastructure

If he didnt ask me about this and he was my general political consultant, then he didnt do his job, Cain said, referring to Curt Anderson. I am almost certain that I did tell him about an allegation. Anderson denied leaking the information and said he first saw the accusations in the Politico report that started the weeks events. Texas Gov. Perry, who fell in opinion polls as Cain rose, also repeated denials that his campaign had anything to do with the reports. He said on CNN, This is over, its gone, its done with and Im pressing on.

plan that would have extended existing highway and transit spending programs and paid for the spending with a $40 billion cut in unspent funding for other domestic programs. The White House opposed the measure over its spending cuts and provisions that would block recent clean air rules and make it harder for the administration to issue new rules. Obama unveiled his $447 billion jobs plan in September and has launched a campaignstyle effort featuring multiple rallies in states crucial to his re-election bid to try to get it passed. In votes last month, Republicans blocked the entire $447 billion jobs package and a subsequent attempt by Democrats to pass a $35 billion piece of it aimed at preventing layoffs of teachers and firefighters. Another political flash point is the way Democrats have sought to pay for Obamas jobs measures a surcharge on income exceeding $1 million. The idea enjoys wide backing in opinion polls but is stoutly opposed by Republicans, who say it would hit small business owners and therefore threaten job growth.

Spin Meter: GOP flips on job creation for defense


By DONNA CASSATA Associated Press WASHINGTON The same Republicans who insist that federal spending doesnt create jobs and should be cut in the face of staggering deficits are leading the charge against smaller military budgets because about a million defense jobs would be lost. Pentagon accounts are coming down, and Republicans who repeatedly reject the idea that an infusion of federal dollars can produce new jobs now say the government should keep billions flowing to the makers of guns, tanks, aircraft and ships for the sake of sparing jobs in home districts and states. Its the newest of several arguments against reducing Pentagon budgets. The contradiction undercuts the GOPs anti-government spending mantra that proved successful for the party in 2010 congressional races in which Republicans reclaimed the House a pitch sure to be repeated by candidates in 2012 contests. Then and now, Republicans fill the campaign airwaves, news releases and stump speeches with the argument that Democratic spending and specifically President Barack Obamas $825 billion stimulus package in 2009 doesnt create jobs. Just this August, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said they were wrong, estimating that in the second quarter of this year alone, the spending package increased the number of people employed by between 1 million and 2.9 million. Consider the latest argument from Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee as lawmakers stare down at least $450 billion in cuts from projected defense spending over the next 10 years. Running for re-election, Rep. Howard Buck McKeon, R-Calif., said in February 2010 that the stimulus package did not create new jobs. In a statement about the economy and jobs now on his website, McKeon says congressional Democrats and the administration continue to insist that we can spend our way out of this recession and create jobs, but the numbers just dont add up. But at a hearing last week, McKeon, now the committee chairman, argued against cuts to the military, saying, We dont spend money on defense to create jobs. But defense cuts are certainly a path to job loss, especially among our high-skilled workforces. There is no private sector alternative to compensate for the governments investment. He later added, While cuts to the military might reduce federal spending, they harm national security and they definitely dont lead to job growth. Asked about the competing statements, a spokesman for McKeon, Claude Chafin, said they were not inconsistent because the defense industry is a unique recipient of federal dollars. The Pentagon is facing reductions of nearly half a trillion dollars, stemming in large part from the limits set in the debt accord reached this summer between Obama and congressional Republicans. Republicans and Democrats, as well as the Pentagon, fear that the special bipartisan panel looking to slash the deficit wont be able to come up with a plan in three weeks to cut at least $1.2 trillion in spending over 10 years. If they cant, automatic, acrossthe-board cuts of $1.2 trillion kick in, with half coming from defense. McKeons remarks came at a hearing in which the GOP-led panel had invited three economists to testify about the potentially dire consequences of defense cuts.

House panel approves subpoena on Solyndra loan


By MATTHEW DALY Associated Press WASHINGTON A Republican-led House panel on Thursday agreed to subpoena the White House for documents related to Solyndra Inc., the failed California solar company that received a halfbillion-dollar federal loan. A House Energy and Commerce subcommittee voted 14-9 along party lines to authorize subpoenas of top White House officials. GOP lawmakers say the subpoenas are necessary because the White House has denied or delayed requests for thousands of documents related to Solyndra. The Fremont, Calif., company received a $528 million federal loan before filing for bankruptcy protection and laying off 1,100 workers. Rep. Fred Upton, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said getting White House documents on Solyndra was like extracting a tooth without anesthesia painful and time-consuming. I wish it had not come to this, but it has, said Upton, R-Mich., who called the White House downright obstructionist on Solyndra. Democrats called the solar loan subpoena an overreach. Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., called the vote an act of irresponsible partisanship and a political sideshow that obscures the real issues in the Solyndra debacle. DeGette and other Democrats said the vote amounted to a fishing expedition that grants Upton broad powers to issue subpoenas as he sees fit. It was the second time in two days that a House panel authorized a subpoena of administration documents. On Wednesday, a House Judiciary subcommittee authorized its chairman to subpoena Department of Homeland Security documents on deportations of illegal immigrants. Upton, who met with White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler on Wednesday, said he will take into account recent White House attempts to provide the committee with documents as he considers whether to issue a subpoena. White House spokesman Eric Schultz said the Obama administration was disappointed in the GOP vote, adding that committee leaders have refused to discuss their requests with us in good faith, instead choosing a partisan route, proceeding with subpoenas that are unprecedented and unwarranted. Schultz said the administration has cooperated extensively with the committees

investigation by producing more than 85,000 pages of documents, including 20,000 pages produced Wednesday. Administration officials also have participated in multiple briefings and hearings on Solyndra, he said. All of the materials that have been disclosed affirm what we said on Day One: This was a merit-based decision made by the Department of Energy, Schultz said. Wed like to see as much passion in House Republicans for creating jobs as we see in this investigation. Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., the energy panels senior Democrat and former chairman, said a subpoena can only be justified if Congress and the executive branch have reached an unbridgeable impasse, which he said he didnt see. Apparently what the committee really wants is a confrontation with the president, not information, Waxman said. But Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., chairman of the energy panels subcommittee on oversight and investigations, said an impasse had been reached. The administration seems to think that if they drag this out, we will give up and simply go away. But we wont, Stearns said.

Lady Knights lose regional heart-breaker


Times Bulletin Sports Editor sports@timesbulletin.com

Football Preview

By Brian Bassett

ELIDA - One week removed from a dramatic come-from-behind victory over stateranked No. 3 Leipsic in the district championship match, the Crestview volleyball Lady Knights took the floor at the Elida Fieldhouse with a Division IV regional final berth in mind. The Lady Knights took the first set against the Sycamore Mohawk Warriors but dropped two of the next three and then the finale to see their tournament run come to an end, 3-2 (21-25, 25-23, 25-15, 18-25, 15-10). The first set saw Mohawk jump out to a 6-3 lead, capped by a Kasey Adelsperger tip. A Warrior attack error brought the Lady Knights back within one, 6-5. Mohawk went on a 4-point run, which culminated in a Molli Cartwright ace - prompting Crestview to use a timeout. The Lady Knights had no answer for Mohawk out of the break and the Warriors went on an 8-5 run to run their lead to eight, 18-10, on a Lady Knight error. The error brought on the second Crestview timeout. This time, the Lady Knights responded out of the break, scoring four consecutive points - two on Courtney Trigg blocks. A Sarah Parker kill gave the Warriors a quick point before Crestview went back to work, scoring three consecutive points two, again, on Trigg blocks. Mohawk then used its first timeout of the set with the lead at 19-17. Trigg recorded another block out of the break and a Warrior net violation tied the set. A Lady Knight error temporarily returned the lead to Mohawk before a Warrior attack error tied it again, this time at 21. The Lady Knights then scored the next four points - on a Warrior error, a Taylor Springer kill and two Mekale Clifton blocks - to take the come-from-behind set win, 25-21. The teams battled to a 9-9 tie to start the second set before a Parker kill gave Mohawk a 10-9 lead and prompted a Warrior run. A Adelsperger kill later in the set made the Mohawk lead four, 18-14. The Lady Knights battled back, however, as a Kirstin Hicks kill brought them within one and a Mohawk error tied the set at 20. The set then saw ties at 21, 22 and 23 before a Parker kill gave the Warriors set point and prompted a Crestview timeout. The Lady Knights touched the ball four times out of the break to give the set win to the Warriors, 25-23, and a 1-1 match tie. The third set began with ties at six, seven and eight before the Warriors five consecutive points gave them a 13-8 lead. The Mohawk lead grew to 21-12 and the Lady Knights used a timeout. The break did not slow the Warrior run and a Parker kill gave Mohawk set point. A Lady

The girls worked hard, it wasnt like they gave up. I just dont think we found our niche tonight ... I have to give it to Mohawk, they were strong, they were aggressive - they had an exceptional match tonight.
Tammy Gregory Crestview coach Knight error gave the third-set win to the Warriors, 25-15. The fourth set, much like the third, started with a 6-6 tie. The teams then fought to ties at seven, eight, 10, 11 and 12 before consecutive Mohawk errors gave the Lady Knights a 14-12 lead. Consecutive Warrior errors later in the set increased the Lady Knight advantage to four, 18-14. Kirstin Hicks and Taylor Springer kills made the score 23-16, Crestview, and they were able to hold off the Warriors to take the fourth set, 25-28 - sending the match to a decisive fifth set. Crestview spotted the Warriors four points to open the fifth set: two on Julie Adelsperger kills. The Mohawk lead became 6-1 on a Parker block and forced the Lady Knights to use their first timeout. Crestview fought back and pulled within two, 6-4, on a Danica Hicks tip. A Parker kill stopped the Lady Knight rally and gave the Warriors breathing room. Consecutive Kasey Adelsperger kills later in the set made the Mohawk lead 12-9 and brought on the second Lady Knight timeout. Mohawk scored three of the next four points, taking the set 15-10 on a Taylor McClain block and ending the match. Springer had 19 assists and 11 kills on the night. Danica Hicks added 18 assists, 10 kills and 16 digs. McKenzie Nofer added eight kills and 18 digs. Trigg recorded seven blocks for the Lady Knights. The girls worked hard, it wasnt like they gave up. I just dont think we found our niche tonight ... I have to give it to Mohawk, they were strong, they were aggressive they had an exceptional match tonight, Crestview coach Tammy Gregory said. An emotional Gregory said it is going to be hard to see the five seniors go. Theyve been through a lot. Each of them talked in the locker room, she added. Not only volleyball but they talked so much about the bond they have - the team chemistry. And thats what brought us this far. Its not all about the skill, its not all about the athletic ability. They just bring so much, the life lessons theyve learned - how theyve come so close. Norwalk St. Paul a 25-10, 25-14, 25-11 victor over Ayersville is the regional-final matchup for the Warriors Saturday.

Jackets place Brown and Wolfrum on HCAC Watch List


The Delphos Herald GREENWOOD, Ind. Defiance College was picked to finish fifth in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference 2011-2012 Preseason Mens Basketball Poll. However, Anthony Brown and Logan Wolfrum being selected for the HCAC Players-toWatch List and with the Yellow Jackets garnering one firstplace vote, there is a hint of the potential in place on this seasons DC mens basketball squad. Defiance posted its fifth straight winning season with a 13-12 overall clip last season and will return 10 lettermen and all five starters from that unit. The Jackets saw seven of those 12 setbacks come by a margin of five points or less last season and will look to flip those tightly-contested games into the win column this season in an effort to climb back towards a more prominent position in the conference standings. Along with returning the starting unit, Defiance is bringing back its top six scorers from one year ago, its top five rebounders and its top five players in minutes per game. The experienced lineup, joined By JOE KAY The Associated Press with yet another exciting incoming crop of recruits by head coach Kyle Brumett, has the Purple and Gold primed for a run at its 27th conference crown on the hardwood. Brown and Wolfrum will headline the roster entering the 2011-2012 campaign as the explosive duo ended last year as the top scoring tandem in the HCAC with a combined 36.4 points per contest. The offensive prowess of Brown and Wolfrum earned them each a spot on the All-HCAC team last season, with Brown being named Honorable Mention All-HCAC and Wolfrum being voted as a First-Team All-HCAC standout. Brown will enter his final collegiate campaign as a 2-time All-HCAC performer, looking to build on his work as one of the top scoring threats in the league. The Glenview, Ill., native ranked fourth in the HCAC with 14.8 points per night as a junior and was second in the nation with a 92.5-percent clip from the charity stripe during the regular season. Brown also ended among the HCAC leaders by shooting 36.6 percent from 3-point range and moved to just 95 points away from becoming the 44th member of DCs 1,000-point club. Wolfrum also boasts a pair of All-HCAC nods in his two seasons with the Purple and Gold and enters his junior campaign as a candidate for HCAC Player of the Year and All-American accolades, ending last season as one of only four NCAA Division III players to rank top-20 in scoring and top-35 in assists. The Defiance, Ohio, native led all NCAA Division III freshmen and sophomores and topped the HCAC with 21.6 points per game, while also pacing the conference with 5.3 helpers per night. Wolfrums sophomore season made him the first player in DCs NCAA Division III era to log 500 points, 100 assists and 100 rebounds in a single season and moved him to within 145 points of joining the programs 1,000-point club. Defiance will have plenty of options outside of the headliners of Brown and Wolfrum; rising sophomore Ryan Hicks and seniors Kevin and Kyle Tietje will give the Jackets a strong trio of returning post threats. That potential starting unit will be bolstered by seniors Brandon Hoke and Justin Morris and sophomores Leroy Lewis, Josh Francis and Brandon Ray, along with 14 new faces to round out the

The Elida football team went a long time without making the second season before last falls surprising run to the regional semifinals. The Bulldogs (7-3, 6-3 in the competitive Western Buckeye League) have now made it two in a row with this years edition. However, the Bulldogs (seeded fifth) go on the road tonight to 4th-seeded Bellevue (7-3) for a 7:30 p.m. showdown in a Region 10 quarterfinal. More often than not, weve been consistent this year. We have played well most of the year, Elida head man Jason Carpenter said. Weve played a pretty tough schedule; the WBL has been as tough as ever and our three losses were to playoff teams.

We had some guys to replace on both of our lines and as they have gotten experience, obviously the play has improved, too. Our offensive line has played outstanding the last three games; they seem to be gelling and peaking. We are seven points away from being 9-1, so weve been right there. About the only game where we didnt play well was Ottawa-Glandorf, the week after we played a pretty good game against Kenton. We didnt have a good week of practice. The Bulldogs average 395.7 yards per game (269.6 passing) and 37.6 points. Senior Reggie McAdams sets the pace under center (180-of-265 passing, 2,664 yards, 28 TDs, 6 picks; 293 yards rushing), throwing to top targets in seniors Austin Etzler (59 catches, 1,221 yards, 15), Brandon Stinson (42 for 548, 5) and Jeremy Newby

(32 for 467, 4), senior running back Colin Blymyer (146 rushes, 780 yards, 11) and senior kicker Nathon Jenkins (47-of-49 extra points, 4-of-6 field goals, 59 points). Senior Theran Carroll at center and Newby at tight end in particular have been key cogs up front. The defense, which cedes 273.5 yards (148.2 rushing) and 17.7 markers per, is paced by junior Quentin Poling (140 total stops), as well as the punter, Etzler (15 punts, 38.5-yard average). Senior Ian Dukehart has made a smooth transition from rush defensive end to the strong-side end and other key players include junior linebacker K.J. Russell, Mitch Knotts and Jesse Wheeler. The Redmen who finished 4-1 and runners-up in the Northern Ohio League under 21st-year head coach Ed Nasonti (166-63) will present a different spread offense for the Orange and Black. They have the reigning

NOL Player of the Year (Jake Sparks) but they spread you out so they can more easily run the ball. They are bigger then we are anybody we potentially could face in the playoffs is bigger than us but I like our work ethic and its hard to gauge how fast anyone is based on film, Carpenter added. Well find out in the first quarter but I feel we are faster overall. Defensively, they have shown either a 4-2-5 or a 5-2 look with man-toman in the secondary but that is more based on the style of offenses they play against. I dont think they have faced a spread offense like ours, so how they will adjust to us in the secondary is something we will have to see first and then adjust. For me, the key is to get off to a quick start. They really havent had to play from behind all year. If we can get out to a 14-0 lead in the first period or 21-7 at the half, I want to make them respond.

Bengals Pacman Jones says hes over Tennessee


CINCINNATI Adam Pacman Jones says his eagerness to play Sunday in Tennessee has nothing to do with what happened during his stormy three years as a Titan. After a year away because of a neck injury, the Cincinnati Bengals cornerback and punt returner just wants to get on the field for an entire game. The Bengals (5-2) will visit the place where Jones career started with such great promise and crashed so fast. He was the sixth overall pick in 2005 and earned a starting job as a rookie but let his career quickly unravel with a series of arrests and suspensions. Now 28, Jones has revived his career with the Bengals, who signed him last season after hed been out of football for a year. The game on Sunday is a chance to show Tennessee (4-3) that hes still around. I know people are like, He cant wait to get back down there and show off or this and that, Jones said. But Ive came to past with Tennessee. I have no regrets. Im happy here in Cincinnati. The city of Cincinnati is what Im worried about. I could care less about Tennessee. His immediate concern is a sore hamstring that could keep him out of the game. Jones signed a 2-year deal with Cincinnati last year, getting a chance to revive his career. He injured a neck disc in October and needed surgery. He had another procedure over the summer, pushing back his return. Jones finally got back on the field last Sunday in Seattle. The first time he touched the ball, he returned a punt 63 yards to set up a touchdown in a 34-12 win. He grabbed the right hamstring as he ran out of bounds on the return, then spent the rest of the game on the sideline. He said the hamstring was at about 60 percent strength by midweek, leaving him questionable for the game. He worked out on Wednesday and Thursday but didnt participate in practice. Im not going to do anything to jeopardize myself, first of all, or what were trying to do as a team, Jones said. If its better for me to sit out this week and wait till next week to play for myself and my team, thats what I would do. The Bengals will try to extend their winning streak to five games, something they havent done since their Super Bowl season of 1988. After that comes a stretch that will define their season games against Pittsburgh, at Baltimore, against Cleveland and in Pittsburgh. Jones wants to be part of the second-half push. He was encouraged to make an impact the first time he touched the ball, then extremely discouraged that hed get only the one play because he got hurt. Jones said it took him a couple of years to come to peace with what happened in Tennessee, where he was suspended by the team for one game in 2006 and by the NFL for the entire 2007 season because of his arrests. He was traded to Dallas in 2008 and

24-man roster. The Jackets will have plenty of competition within the HCAC, with Transylvania netting five first-place votes en route to earning the label of preseason favorites to win the leagues regular-season championship. The Pioneers claimed 86 points in the poll and were followed by Hanover (78), Rose-Hulman (77), Manchester (75) and DC (58) in the tightly-bunched top five, as all of those teams except Rose-Hulman took at least one first-place tally. The poll was rounded out by Anderson (76), Bluffton (47), Franklin (42), Mount St. Joseph (18) and Earlham (12). DC will get things started on Nov. 15 with a 7 p.m. game at Kalamazoo before heading east for the North Coast Athletic Conference and HCAC Tip-Off Classic on Nov. 18 and 19 in Wooster. The Jackets will take on the No. 9 Wooster Fighting Scots at 8 p.m. Nov. 18 before challenging Ohio Wesleyan at 6 p.m. Nov. 19. The loaded early-season schedule will then be highlighted by the 2011-2012 home opener, with the Jackets welcoming Ohio Northern on November 22 for a 7:30 p.m. tip inside the Karl H. Weaner Community Center.

Experience separates LSU, Alabama at QB


By BRETT MARTEL The Associated Press BATON ROUGE, La. Even as LSUs Jarrett Lee called AJ McCarron a great quarterback, he wondered whether Alabamas first-year starter could appreciate the pressurized environment hell encounter on Saturday night. This is a pretty big ball game and we have a very talented team, Lee said of the top-ranked Tigers highlyanticipated trip to Tuscaloosa. So I dont think hes experienced anything like this. Oddly, neither of the nations two highest-ranked teams have relied heavily on their quarterbacks so far this season, bucking a trend in college football toward spread offenses that throw all over the field. Instead, LSU and second-ranked Alabama have rolled to double-digit victories in all eight of their games on the strength of their punishing running games and suffocating, hard-hitting defenses. As far as the quarterback position goes, were just trying to manage the ball game, Lee said. Between us two teams, I dont guess the quarterbacks throw up a whole lot of big stats in the passing game. ... Were not worried about stats. We just want to keep winning. Yet, because the Tigers and Crimson Tide have similar strengths, their matchup might turn on the performance of their quarterbacks, who to this point have had to do little more than minimize mistakes and make enough throws to keep defenses honest. For Lee, the main difference between the two teams signal-callers is the amount of big games under their belts and the maturity that comes with that. Lee and fellow senior Jordan Jefferson each have taken a lot of snaps at LSU since 2008, learning from errors they made in dramatic losses to Southeastern Conference rivals. Theyve steadily gained the confidence to make decisive plays with games on the line, as they did several times last season, including in the Tigers 24-21 victory over Alabama. One thing for us is, me and Jordan, weve been in big ball games before, Lee said. Weve won big ball games, so the experience is one of the major factors as far as the quarterback position between us and them. LSU coach Les Miles echoed Lees comments, predicting that the Tigers experience at quarterback will give us certain advantages in running our offense and doing the things we want to do. McCarron, a sophomore, is 8-0 as a starter for an Alabama team that has overmatched every opponent so far. He has yet to lead a fourthquarter scoring drive with a game on the line in his career. Still, he has been largely mistake-free since throwing a pair of interceptions in his debut as a starter against Kent State. Before throwing only his third interception of the season against Tennessee two weeks ago, he threw 152 straight passes without being picked off, the third-longest streak in Alabama history. McCarron has completed 67 percent of his passes for 1,664 yards and 10 TDs, which compares well to Lees 63 percent passing for 1,250 yards and 13 TDs. He makes quality decisions, is very confident with his throws and is protected pretty well, Miles said of McCarron. He is really doing the things that their coaches are asking him to do. While Alabama does not make McCarron available for interviews, his teammates praise his poise in the huddle and express little doubt that hell remain steady in the face of a play-making LSU defense that has 19 sacks, 11 interceptions and 10 forced fumbles this season. AJs a leader out there on the field and hell get the job done, Alabama receiver Darius Hanks said. He can handle the tough situations. For him to be a young quarterback, when things dont go well, hes always one of the guys saying, Lets go, lets pick things up out there on the field. If McCarron struggles, Alabama might have to stick with him. LSU, however, has the luxury of changing things up. While Lee, a more con-

The Associated Press COLUMBUS Whats brewing with the 2011 Ohio State Buckeyes ... BUCKEYES BUZZ: Everyone expects this to be a difficult year for Ohio State recruiting. The NCAA problems, including the looming possibility of a bowl ban or other sanctions, are the primary reason. Then there is the uncertain future of the current coaches; should Ohio State hire a new head coach theres a good chance that none of the people doing the recruiting will still be here when the recruits arrive. Another issue is that the Buckeyes are a young team and its always difficult to bring in a recruit who plays a position stocked with underclassmen. But the guys who handle recruiting for the Buckeyes the assistant coaches say theyve tried to do as good a job as ever. You know what, recruitment at Ohio State is bigger than any person or situation, said recruiting coordinator John Peterson. The brand Ohio State will be here longer than me or any coach. When youre out recruiting, youre honest. Youre recruiting the kids who want to come to Ohio State. At the end of the day, thats the kids youre going to get. Cornerbacks coach Taver Johnson said the high school seniors and juniors have questions that cant be answered. Its always hard when theres that part of it, he said. But we say, Hey, all you have to do is come and be around our players. You bring your family, you come down, be around our players, be around the program, be around everyone thats involved with athletics. Thats a huge, huge plus. Peterson added it was too early to tell if the next recruiting class will be dominated by homegrown talent. It is widely presupposed that other schools will use Ohio States problems against it in out-ofstate recruiting. Always the Buckeyes bread and butter, Ohio kids are more likely to come to OSU than others. The coaches say they try not to insert themselves into the recruiting spiel. Weve never tried to do that, Johnson added. I know a lot of (schools) do. A lot of recruiters do but theres no reason for me to sell me. Theres no reason for me to sell any of my credentials. That makes no sense whatsoever. Its all about Ohio State. And until the NCAA sanctions are finalized and the season plays out, recruiting to and at Ohio State remains a difficult job.
STILL AVAILABLE: Tickets are still available for the noon kickoff Saturday between Ohio State and Indiana at Ohio Stadium. Ticket prices start at $70. NEXT BIG TEN EXPANSION SITE? Ohio State spokesman Jim Lynch posted a note on his Twitter account on Thursday that the university is opening an office in Mumbai, India, in April of 2012. WHOS BACK DEEP? Interim coach Luke Fickell said Thursday that he doesnt know if fourthstring TB and KR Jaamal Berry, who has been charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct, will return to the team this season. He has been suspended indefinitely until his legal problems are cleared. Fickell also said that Jordan Hall (sprained ankle) will miss the Indiana game. That means that the Buckeyes will likely try a number of combinations on returns. Philly Brown could fill in there

ventional pocket passer, takes the overwhelming majority of snaps, Miles has worked Jefferson into games regularly. Jefferson runs the option and has only thrown the ball 10 times but has completed six of those passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns. Both of their quarterbacks are playing extremely well, said Alabama coach Nick Saban, noting that both played key roles in LSUs victory over the Tide last season. Even though Jarrett Lee has played a lot more, Jordan Jefferson has complemented him extremely well when hes come in with a little different style. It creates a lot of preparation time for defenses. Lee is a strong-armed Texan who arrived at LSU unafraid to take risks down field but paid for it with 16 interceptions in his freshman season, including four in an overtime loss to Alabama in Tiger Stadium. This season, Lee has thrown only one interception in 155 attempts and speaks confidently of his ability to make clutch throws against anyone. At times, he still sees himself as big-play quarterback, which he has backed up with some long completions to leading LSU receiver Rueben Randle. Yet Lee sees no reason why quarterbacks like him, or McCarron, should take offense to being labeled a game manager. It just means were winning, Lee added. Im OK with it.

Injuries are putting Browns backfield in motion


By TOM WITHERS The Associated Press BEREA Two weeks ago, running back Chris Ogbonnaya was on Houstons practice squad, waiting for his chance. On Sunday, hell play against the Texans. Such is life in the unpredictable NFL. Its crazy. This league is crazy, said Ogbonnaya, signed by the Browns on Oct. 18. There are opportunities that come out of nowhere, come out of different circumstances, different situations. You want crazy and different? Well, Clevelands the place. The Browns have undergone a maddening makeover in the offensive backfield this season as an eruption of injuries have sidelined running backs Peyton Hillis, Montario Hardesty and Brandon Jackson, who suffered a season-ending toe injury in an exhibition. With Hillis, who has been a lightning rod for controversy, sidelined by a hamstring injury, the Browns signed Ogbonnaya last month. And with Hardesty down after tearing a calf muscle last week that could keep him out for several games, the team signed free agent Thomas Clayton earlier this week following a tryout. The Browns 29th ranked running game is hurting. It could be in greater pain Sunday when Cleveland faces the Houston Texans, who have the leagues thirdranked defense. However, the Browns finally got some encouraging news Thursday when Hillis made it through his first practice in more than a week and said hes on track to play Sunday after missing Clevelands previous two games. It was Hillis first practice since Oct. 26, when he pushed his tender hamstring too hard and suffered a setback. I went through practice and was smarter about it and came out healthy, Hillis said. My minds starting to get back to where I feel more comfortable and more confident about going out there and doing what I need to do. Hardestys injury has given Hillis a chance to make amends for a tumultuous and to this point unproductive season. The 25-year-old, who rushed for 1,177 yards and 11 TDs last season, has made more headlines for his off-the-field issues than anything hes done between the goal posts. Theres been his contract squabble, his decision to sit out a game with strep throat, his surprise marriage last week and a miscommunication that caused him to miss a Halloween charity event for children. Although he hasnt intended to be a distraction, hes been just that. The Browns now need him to do one thing: take the ball and run. I feel like the guys are looking up to me and need me to come out there to produce for them and for the team, Hillis said. They expect a lot out of me, probably even more than I expect from myself. That makes me want to work harder for them. At this point, Im trying to get healthy and trying to make sure I dont do anything stupid by going out there and reinjuring or reaggravating anything and try to get back Sunday. The return of a healthy Hillis would be welcomed relief for Ogbonnaya. Last week, the Houston native was forced to stay on the field for nearly the entire game after Hardesty, starting in place of Hillis, got hurt in the first quarter. Ogbonnaya was already playing special teams and had to double his workload. Ogbonnaya finished with 11 carries for 37 yards, had five receptions and gave everything he had. At halftime, hes gassed, said quarterback Colt McCoy, who was also Ogbonnayas teammate in college. Hes on special teams, hes the personal protector on punts. The guy played almost every play. By the fourth quarter when we started making a run, hes gassed and that hurt us. I think having Thomas will help us this week. Clayton was home in

a little bit, Chris Fields is obviously a guy whos returned kicks for us and Devin Smith as well, Fickell added. He also included Dan Herron and Carlos Hyde as possible deep men. COMPLIANCE UPDATE: Consultants studying how well Ohio State programs comply with rules and requirements finished the first stage of their review. The compliance review was launched earlier this year following the schools football memorabilia scandal that led to several player suspensions, the departure of coach Jim Tressel and an NCAA investigation. Geoff Chatas, the universitys chief financial officer, said consultants have finished reviewing the schools compliance efforts and are moving on to how well the university compares to other colleges and companies. Consultants updated university trustees Thursday on their progress but did not give details of findings. The review looks at compliance across the university, with an emphasis on athletics, research, student financial aid and the medical center.

Massachusetts staying in shape and hoping to hear from a team when the Browns called on Monday. He was with Cleveland three different times last season, so there was a familiarity with him and some of the coaches. I think the learning curve will be pretty easy considering Im familiar with a lot of the players here and the coaching staff as well. Everyones been pretty helpful. So I should be able to get out there and contribute pretty soon, Clayton added.
Notes: Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi practiced for the first time since suffering a concussion on Oct. 23. He sat out last weeks game. Massaquoi added his symptoms were different from what he experienced last season when he got a concussion from a helmet-to-helmet hit by Steelers linebacker James Harrison. ... CB Dimitri Patterson (knee) missed his second straight practice and will likely miss Sundays game. ... Coach Pat Shurmur isnt planning to replace Tony Pashos at right starting tackle. Both Artis Hicks and Oneil Cousins shared reps in practice with Pashos, who has been battling an ankle injury, but Shurmur added I wouldnt read into that.

(Continued from Page 6) standout linebacker Luke Kuechly. He had 20 tackles 12 solo his 31st straight game with 10 or more. BC starter Chase Rettig completed 11-of-18 passes with one touchdown and one interception. Bordner was 1-of2 for 37 yards and ran seven times for 45 yards. Manuel did most of the damage in a dominant first half, when Florida State scored on three consecutive possessions to blow the game open. With 4:51 to play in the second quarter, the Seminoles led 28-0; they had outgained BC

214 yards to 16 and held the Eagles without a first down. Bordner came into the game and, sharing time with Rettig on the drive, led BC 74 yards to the Florida State 1 before Finch fumbled. Finch had two fumbles in the game while gaining 59 yards on 28 carries. Florida State failed to get a first down on its first possession but it got the ball back on the BC 2 when Anthony McCloud knocked the ball free from Finch and Smith fell on it. Two plays and a penalty later, Manuel hit Bert Reed for an 8-yard touchdown pass. The Seminoles scored

early in the second quarter on Freemans 12-yard run and, after another BC 3-and-out, Manuel completed a 58-yard pass to OLeary before taking it in himself from 1 yard out to make it 21-0. After another BC 3-and-out, Freeman marched Florida State down the field before scoring from the 3 to give the Seminoles a 28-0 lead. Tulsa 24, UCF 17 ORLANDO, Fla. G.J. Kinne threw for a goahead touchdown and Kevin Fitzpatrick added three field goals as Tulsa hung on to beat Central Florida 24-17 on Thursday night.

It was the Golden Hurricanes first victory this season after trailing at halftime and came despite settling for field goals on three trips inside the red zone. The Knights (4-4, 2-2 Conference USA) lost at home for the first time this season, while Tulsa (5-3, 5-0) remained unbeaten in the league. UCF, the defending conference champions, controlled the game early but failed on a fourth-down pass midway through the fourth quarter that allowed Tulsa to run out the clock.

Bennett was 7-of-9 for 65 yards and backup Myles Gordon was 2-of-3 for 60 yards and a touchdown a 56-yard strike to Greg Hollinger. Carlos Sanchez made a 28-yard field goal for MVSU (1-9). The Delta Devils snapped a 19-game losing streak last week with a 12-9 victory over Texas Southern.

8 The Herald

When it comes to the daily news, the recently retired editor of The New York Times has decided that there is news, and then there is news about religion and social issues. When covering debates on politics, its crucial for Times journalists to be balanced and fair to stakeholders on both sides. But when it comes to matters of moral and social issues, Bill Keller argues that its only natural for scribes in the worlds most powerful newsroom to view events through what he considers a liberal, intellectual and tolerant lens. Were liberal in the sense that ... liberal arts schools are liberal, Keller noted, during a recent dialogue recorded at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum. Were an urban newspaper. ... We write about evolution as a fact. We dont give equal time to Creationism. Moderator Evan Smith, editor of the Texas Tribune, jokingly shushed his guest and added: You may not be in the right state for that. Keller continued: We are liberal in the sense that we are open-minded, sort of tolerant, urban. Our wedding page includes -and did even before New York had a gay marriage law -- included gay unions. So were liberal in that sense of the word, I

On Religion
guess. Socially liberal. Asked directly if the Times slants its coverage to favor Democrats and liberals, he added: Aside from the liberal values, sort of social values thing that I talked about, no, I dont think that it does. The bottom line: Keller insists the newspaper he ran for eight years is playing it straight in its political coverage. However, he admitted it has an urban, liberal bias when it comes to stories about social issues. And what are Americas hotbutton social issues? Any list would include sex, salvation, abortion, euthanasia, gay rights, cloning and a few other sensitive matters that are inevitably linked to religion. Kellers Austin remarks were the latest in a series of candid comments in which the man who has called himself a collapsed Catholic has jabbed at his newspapers

critics, especially political conservatives and religious traditionalists. Shortly before stepping down as editor, he wrote a column insisting that religious believers -- evangelical Protestants and conservative Catholics, in particular -should face strict scrutiny when running for higher office. After all, he argued, if a candidate believes space aliens dwell among us, shouldnt voters know if these kinds of beliefs will shape future policies? In another recent essay, Keller flashed back to an earlier national debate about the integrity of the Times and its commitment to journalistic balance, fairness and accuracy. It was in 2004 that the newspapers first public editor wrote a column that ran under the headline Is The New York Times a Liberal Newspaper? Then, in his first sentence, Daniel Okrent bluntly stated: Of course it is. Discussions of this piece continue to this day. The key to that earlier piece, noted Keller, was its admission that the Times outlook is steeped in the mores of a big, rambunctious city, which means that it tends to be skeptical of dogma, secular, cosmopolitan. This socially liberal worldview does have its weaknesses when it comes to covering news outside zip codes close to Man-

hattan. Okrent rightly scolded us for sometimes seeming to look down our urban noses at the churchgoing, the gun-owning and the unlettered, noted Keller. Respect is a prerequisite for understanding. But he did not mean that we subscribe to any political doctrine or are foot soldiers in any cause. (Anyone who thinks we go easy on liberals should ask Eliot Spitzer or David Paterson or Charles Rangel or ...). As for the future, the newspapers new executive editor has carefully offered her own opinion on the worldview of the newsroom she now leads. In an interview with current Times public editor Arthur S. Brisbane, Jill Abramson joined Keller in stressing that its crucial to remain unbiased -when covering politics. I sometimes try not only to remind myself but my colleagues that the way we view an issue in New York is not necessarily the way it is viewed in the rest of America, she said. I am pretty scrupulous about when we apply our investigative firepower to politicians, that we not do it in a way that favors one way of thinking or one party over the other. I think the mandate is to keep the paper straight.

son, could receive its final sanctions from the NCAA any day. Herron returned in peak form, however. He rushed for 114 yards and a score at No. 15 Illinois, then carried a career-best 33 times for 160 yards in Saturdays stunning 33-29, last-minute upset of No. 12 Wisconsin. Well, people really respond to me good now. Were winning. Winning and were doing pretty good, he said with a grin. I got some pretty mean people ... but I really didnt kind of listen to them. I stayed positive about everything. Just kept on moving forward. The Buckeyes (5-3, 2-2 Big Ten) already had quality backs in Jordan Hall and Carlos Hyde, but Herron was moved ahead of them immediately and their carries have diminished dramatically. Hyde, the teams leading rusher with 408 yards and a 5.2-yard per carry average, has barely seen any action since Herron came back. Hes known as an impact player and thats exactly what he has been, said Adams, who has played the last three games. It was great

Hes the thats screaming on the sideline when we score, not to let up, to make sure that weve always got our heads up and dont get down when were going through adversity. Herron is thankful for the people who remained in his corner through the suspensions. He was asked if he thought Buckeyes fans would be so supportive with the Booooom! cheer instead of boos if the team werent winning and he werent productive. Im not sure. Like I say, everybody has their opinion, so I couldnt really tell you what people would be thinking if we were losing or if I was rushing for just 25 yards, he said. He said he cant dwell on the violations and the tumultuous year surrounding the program. I cant worry about what if, he said. You have to worry about now.

Why did he leave starter Randy Wells in so long against the White Sox, resulting in another tough loss? Why didnt he play September call-ups more with the Cubs so far out of contention? Quades season got off to a difficult start when the Cubs lost two members of their starting rotation, Andrew Cashner and Wells, in early April. It didnt get much better. Quade was ejected seven times in his first season and he got in a screaming match with starter Ryan Dempster, one of the clubhouse leaders. His general manager, Jim Hendry, was fired during the season. Ryan Theriot, now with St. Louis, at one point said the Cubs were playing like a Triple-A team and mercurial right-hander Car-

Battle to quit smoking is fought on many fronts


DeAR DOCTOR K: At a recent medical visit for my heart condition, my doctor urged me again to quit smoking. At 70, Ive quit repeatedly without lasting success. Ive tried the patch. Ive tried medicine. Neither has worked. Support groups arent for me. Being told over and over that I need to quit smoking just leaves me feeling depressed and weak. Can you offer me any hope? DeAR ReADeR: Yes, absolutely! The fact that youve tried so hard to quit smoking is a good sign: Wanting to quit is the necessary first step. I know you feel discouraged right now. Ive had many patients in exactly your situation who have successfully become ex-smokers. Thats why Im going to encourage you to try again. Nicotine is highly addictive. Willpower alone isnt enough when youre trying to quit. Fortunately, there are lots of tools to help you fight this addiction. Quit-smoking aids include nicotine-replacement patches, gum, lozenges, inhalers, sprays and medications. Toll-free quitlines can connect you to the help you need (find the quitline in your state at www. smokefree.gov). None of these tools work miracles. Often theyre more effective when combined. Its also true that one drug may work even if another one failed. So consider these options: I know you tried the nicotine patch. Talk to your doctor about coupling the patch with a short-acting nicotinereplacement product such as nicotine gum, lozenge or inhaler. These products can help you to rapidly ease

sudden cravings. If the medicine prescribed for you didnt help, ask your doctor about trying a different drug. There are several drugs, and one may work even if another has not worked. And ask your doctor about combining medicine with a product that replaces nicotine. You mentioned that support groups arent for you. Did you know

you dont need to join a group to be supported? While sitting comfortably at home with your slippers on, you can simply dial the national quit line at 1-800-QUIT-NOW. If you use the Internet, check the website at www. smokefree.gov. Smartphone apps designed to support quitting exist, too. All of these options have worked for other people -- including people like you who have tried unsuccessfully in the past to quit. There also are plenty of new treatments under development. For example, scientists are trying to create vaccines that cause a persons immune system to attack nicotine and keep it from reaching the brain. In theory, at least, this would deny you pleasurable feelings from smoking, thus helping you break the habit. There may be more useful tools to quit smoking coming down the road. My advice? Please dont wait for exciting new treatments. Work with your doctor or a specialist in smoking cessation to tailor a plan that works for you. There are more ex-smokers in the U.S. today than smokers. And there are more effective treatments than ever before. So, please, try again. Your heart, lungs, family and friends will all thank you.

Tomorrows Horoscope
SAturDAy, NoV. 5, 2011 If you have several significant goals you wish to accomplish in the next year, networking could help you weld them together and enable you to go after them collectively. Itll do wonders for your self-esteem when theyre in the can. SCorPIo (oct. 24-Nov. 22) -When mingling with others, there is a chance you could discover a new and very appealing social interest. Itll be something fascinating that proves to be stimulating for the moment. SAGIttArIuS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although the media is a good source for interesting news, so might be many of the fascinating bulletins youll receive at the dinner table. CAPrICorN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Keep your lines of communication open, because someone with a heavy load of scuttlebutt will be trying to get in touch with you. Youll want to hear what she or he has to say. AQuArIuS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- This is an excellent day to put your business and personal records in order. If you examine your budget, youll see how you can cut corners and get more mileage from your money. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Assign yourself a long list of things to do, if no one else is doing this for you. It is likely to be one of those days when youll need a packed schedule in order to feel productive. ArIES (March 21-April 19) -Use your subtle sense of humor to get your points across in a testy situation, or if youre with someone who needs to laugh a little to get past a tough predicament. tAuruS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone with whom you recently had a misunderstanding is hoping to hear from you. Both parties need to forgive and forget, without pointing any fingers. Be the big person who steps forward. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Keep your tactics and methods flexible so each can be altered to suit the conditions at hand, and youll have no trouble achieving something very important. CANCEr (June 21-July 22) -- If youve been falling behind in acquiring new knowledge thats necessary for a top-shelf project, now is the time to do something about that. Catch up with all reasonable speed. LEo (July 23-Aug. 22) -Whether you decide to engage in a joint endeavor or take care of your own personal needs depends on the importance of each, not on which you would prefer to do. Choose wisely. VIrGo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Keep your back to the wall, because someone is trying to manipulate you into making a decision that favors her or him. Dont let anyone pressure you into going against your desires. LIBrA (Sept. 23-oct. 23) -- People in general can be a bit sensitive and touchy, so if you dont want your production line shut down, its important to make everyone feel appreciated and significant.

Emotions run high after Occupy clash


By JASON DEAREN and LISA LEFF Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif. Emotions ran high as Occupy Wall Street supporters and public officials dealt with the aftermath of protests that shutdown the nations fifth-busiest port before spiraling into chaos near the movements downtown encampment. Dozens of people who participated in the massive demonstrations Wednesday returned a day later to help clean up after a night of violence by what they characterized as a rogue band of troublemakers. A group identifying itself as the movements media committee released a statement Thursday expressing regret that their day of peaceful protests was marred by an autonomous group that broke windows and marked scores of buildings with graffiti. Later, hundreds of people attended an unruly City Council meeting as the board considered a resolution that would sanction a long-term protest camp at the plaza across from City Hall. Barucha Heller, who identified herself as a member of Occupy Oaklands media committee, said at an afternoon news conference she thought the protests that drew 7,000 people to the streets and shut down the Port of Oakland had been a huge success and that the media was wrong to focus on the rampant vandalism and spasms of violence that led to more than 100 arrests. Thats extremely irrelevant. Whats relevant is there has been no general strike in the United States since 1946 and yesterday there was tens of thousands of people in the street, taking over banks, using a diversity of tactics and in many ways shutting down the city. We had tons of unions and workers come out, Heller said. Things got testy, however, when another member of the media committee, Shake Anderson, said participants in the encampment outside City Hall had called the mayors office early Thursday to disavow the people who were causing damage. Heller interrupted him, saying that Occupy Oakland had not cooperated with the mayor. If individuals called the mayors office they do not represent Occupy Oakland. She added, Occupy Oakland has a policy that has been passed through the General Assembly that we do not negotiate with politicians and we do not involve political parties. During the first few hours of the special meeting of City Council, many of the more than 100 people awaiting an opportunity to speak urged the panel to vote in favor of Councilmember Nancy Nadels resolution that would support the camp. Some in the crowd jeered when interim police chief Howard Jordan said his officers used great restraint during the protests. The Council did not vote on the measure. A night earlier, police in riot gear arrested dozens of protesters after bands of masked protesters took over a vacant building, erected roadblocks and threw chunks of concrete and firebombs. Five people and several officers were injured. Oakland officials said 103 people had been arrested by Thursday afternoon. Hours before the group of what city leaders called provocateurs clashed with authorities, setting fires, spraying graffiti and shattering windows early Thursday, the demonstraBy STEPHANIE REITZ Associated Press

East runs low on snow days after Irene, new storm


HARTFORD, Conn. Alison Takahashi thought autumn of her senior year would be filled with memories-to-be like the homecoming dance, crossing her fingers over college applications and counting down to graduation from Glastonbury High School. Instead, the dance is delayed, her graduation date is a question mark and shes squeezing in study time during daylight hours as she and hundreds of thousands of other Northeast residents spends days without power after last weekends snowstorm. I feel so disorganized and disoriented because weve been living all over the place, said the 17-year-old Takahashi, whose family has bunked in hotels since losing power Saturday, and who has squeezed in study time for an SAT specialty test in Spanish as part of her application to Georgetown University. She must take that test Saturday in her high school, where that nights homecoming dance has been postponed and town residents pop in to take showers and recharge their cellphones and computers. Throughout the region and especially in hard-hit Connecticut, many school districts that lost several snow days to the remnants of Hurricane Irene in August found themselves losing this full week, too, because of snow-related power failures and tree damage. A handful of districts in New Jersey also remained closed Thursday, leaving those and other districts wondering they would have to cut into vacations to regain the lost days. Throughout the Northeast, the storms legacy has left students, working parents and others looking for last-minute baby sitters as power-free day care centers remain closed, or going without access to email and other modern conveniences. About 589,000 homes and businesses in the Northeast more than half of them in Connecticut went without power for a fifth day Thursday. Makeshift relief centers filled with weary parents and restless children. The number of lost school days is forcing some districts to consider trimming their winter or spring vacations to ensure school doesnt stretch beyond June a consideration virtually unheard of so early in the academic year.

tions in the city had gone smoothly. The far-flung movement challenging the worlds economic systems and distribution of wealth has gained momentum in recent weeks, with Oakland becoming a rallying point after an Iraq War veteran was injured in clashes with police last week. The 3,000-person protest outside the port Wednesday night represented an escalation in tactics as demonstrators targeted a major symbol of the nations commerce with peaceful rallies and sit-ins, managing to effectively suspend maritime operations there for the night. An accounting of the financial toll from the port shutdown was not immediately available. A protest organizer in Chicago, Joshua Kaunert, said the shutdown was an amazing event for the movement, but he didnt want to speculate on what effect the violence would have. He said the lack of a formal leadership structure and the emphasis on what he called a true, direct democracy makes it difficult to weed out potential troublemakers.

Its a difficult situation when you lose five off the bat. Its only November and we havent even had the real snow yet, said Paul K. Smith, superintendent of Boltons schools, which were set to remain closed today for their fifth consecutive day. He and several other superintendents said that the past 10 months have been unlike any they remember in recent decades. Record-setting snows in January forced many districts in Connecticut and elsewhere to stretch their school years to compensate for lost days and just as they breathed a sigh of relief, Irene swept through the Northeast to steal away days at the start of the new school year. Then, last weekends rare October snow completed the triple whammy, forcing them to cancel even more days. It also comes as many districts were wrapping up their marking periods and trying to compile report cards; as several sports were heading into state and regional tournaments; and as many students faced a Nov. 1 deadline for early admission consideration in certain colleges, some of which have said they will be flexible under the circumstances.

CIA following Twitter, Facebook


By KIMBERLY DOZIER AP Intelligence Writer McLEAN, Va. In an anonymous industrial park in Virginia, in an unassuming brick building, the CIA is following tweets up to 5 million a day. At the agencys Open Source Center, a team known affectionately as the vengeful librarians also pores over Facebook, newspapers, TV news channels, local radio stations, Internet chat rooms anything overseas that anyone can access and contribute to openly. From Arabic to Mandarin Chinese, from an angry tweet to a thoughtful blog, the analysts gather the information, often in native tongue. They cross-reference it with the local newspaper or a clandestinely intercepted phone conversation. From there, they build a picture sought by the highest levels at the White House, giving a real-time peek, for example, at the mood of a region after the Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden or perhaps a prediction of which Mideast nation seems ripe for revolt. Yes, they saw the uprising in Egypt coming; they just didnt know exactly when revolution might hit, said the centers director, Doug Naquin. The center already had predicted that social media in places like Egypt could be a game-changer and a threat to the regime, he said in a recent interview with The Associated Press at the center. CIA officials said it was the first such visit by a reporter the agency has ever granted. The CIA facility was set up in response to a recommendation by the 9/11 Commission, with its first priority to focus on counterterrorism and counterproliferation. But its several hundred analysts the actual number is classified track a broad range, from Chinese Internet access to the mood on the street in Pakistan. While most are based in Virginia, the analysts also are scattered throughout U.S.

The most successful analysts, Naquin said, are something like the heroine of the crime novel The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, a quirky, irreverent computer hacker who knows how to find stuff other people dont know exists. Those with a masters degree in library science and multiple languages, especially those who grew up speaking another language, make a powerful open source officer, Naquin said.
