Connecticut Light & Power, the state’s largest utility, announced Sunday night that it would miss its goal of restoring power to 99 percent of its 1.2 million customers by midnight. Chief Operating Officer Jeffrey apologized, saying that power might not be restored to everyone until Wednesday. About 6,000 of the outages were new and unrelated to the snowstorm, he said. Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has called the delays unacceptable and said the state is keeping its legal options open in case there are grounds for recourse in the courts once the circumstances are examined.

access to local roads. “As much as we want to support and be supportive of CL&P, it’s clear that for the last several days, they have failed to meet their own imposed goals on a day by day basis,” Malloy said Sunday. Attorney General George Jepsen is participating in the probe to ensure that the state, in Malloy’s words, “preserves its legal options on behalf of itself and on behalf of Connecticut utility customers.” Jepsen cautioned Sunday that it was too early to know whether grounds might exist for any court action. U.S. Sens. Joe Lieberman and Richard Blumenthal also put out calls for thorough reviews of CL&P’s preparedness before the storm and its response afterward, with Blumenthal describing the situation as a “historic breakdown of power and public trust.” Some people who were slogging through their eighth day Sunday without power said they would be pleasantly surprised to see their power restored Sunday night or early today, but they weren’t optimistic. “We’re disappointed, discouraged, tired, but I don’t know what else you can really say, you know,” said Chet Matczak of Simsbury, an especially hard-hit suburb. “A lot of this is just the luck of the draw.” In Somers, a northern Connecticut town on the Massachusetts border, First Selectman Lisa Pellegrini said a team of highly supervised crews of minimum-security inmates from nearby state prisons had been dispatched to clear town property of trees, limbs and other debris so power restoration could move more quickly.

the 800 block of West Skinner Street in reference to a domestic violence complaint. Upon officers’ arrival, they spoke with the victim who stated a family or household member had caused harm to them. The victim required Ball medical attention from the injuries received during the domestic violence and was taken to a local hospital for medical attention and was later released. As a result, officers found enough probable cause to arrest Joe Ball, 31, of Delphos on charges of domestic violence. Ball was transported to the Van Wert County Jail and will appear in Van Wert Municipal Court on the charge. No citations were issued in a one-vehicle accident that occurred at 4:01 p.m. Sunday in the East Towne Center parking lot. Ashley Reynolds, 33, of Fort Jennings was traveling eastbound on the south side of East Towne Center and attempted to turn left to At 7:24 p.m. on Sunday, Delphos Police were contacted by a subject in reference to a domestic violence complaint that had just occurred in the 1000 block of North Black Main Street. Upon speaking with the victim, it was found they did not live with the other subject but did have a child together and there was enough probable cause to arrest the other subject. A short time later, officers went to the residence on North Main Street and placed Jessica Black, 34, of Delphos under arrest on charges of domestic violence. She was transported to the Allen County Jail and will appear in Lima Municipal Court on the charge.

Volunteers make final push on Ohio union fight
$11,700 McDonald’s grant to highlight 2011-12 Wings N Wheels hockey season
Wings~N~Wheels, the Celina-based inline (roller) hockey league, begins Nov. 22 at “The Zone” hockey rink inside the Mercer County Junior Fair Building. The inline hockey ministry started in 2001 and has continued to grow. The league’s first year saw less than three dozen children, and last year more than 180 youth and adults from Mercer, Auglaize, Allen and surrounding counties participated. Ronald McDonald House Charities recently awarded Wings N Wheels an $11,700 grant to buy new, name-brand hockey gear. The equipment – including skates, helmets, elbow pads, gloves, shin guards and more – will be available for players to use at no charge for the season. Due to the growth of the sport, the amount of available equipment is limited and not all players will be able to use the free gear. League officials will offer the equipment first to new players and families with limited resources. A sport court, an official inline hockey surface, was installed two years ago, providing a more authentic hockey experience, said Commissioner Titus Garber. The rink also features a professional dasherboard system - a high-density, rotationally-molded plastic board system, similar to those used by other indoor hockey
COLUMBUS (AP) — Jeanne McGinnis and Leo Almeida walked house-tohouse Sunday along the brick roads of Columbus’ German Village neighborhood, knocking on doors and reminding voters to head to the ballots on Tuesday. McGinnis and Almeida were among the volunteers, reaching out to voters on behalf of a union- and Democratbacked coalition trying to kill Ohio’s new union law. “There were people who died to create unions, and people have been trying to bust them ever since,” McGinnis, 58, a retired telecommunications worker, said. “The middle class is suffering and becoming nonexistent. I have three kids, I’m beginning to have grandkids, and I’m worried for them.” Signed by Gov. John Kasich in March, the law would limit the collective bargaining rights of 350,000 teachers, firefighters, police and other state public workers. Voters will decide its fate by casting a ballot on state Issue 2. A “yes” vote will preserve the law; a “no” vote will repeal it. The law outlaws strikes by state workers, institutes a merit pay system, requires workers to pay at least 15 percent of their health care premiums and 10 percent of their wages toward their pensions, eliminates seniority as the only factor in determining who gets laid off and prohibits bargaining on issues such as grievances, promotions and minimum staffing rules. If the law is defeated, Ohioans could still see elements of it pop up in legislation as early as next year. Republican House Speaker William Batchelder said last week he and other top Republicans know through polling which elements of the law voters agree on.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Faced with the problem of what to do about an increasing workload amid state funding cuts, seven Ohio counties have decided to merge the offices of their Job and Family Services departments in an effort to more efficiently handle more cases with limited means. The collaboration, which begins next month, includes Delaware, Knox, Wood, Hancock, Marion, Morrow and Sandusky counties, according to The Columbus Dispatch. Cases will be handled much

and soccer leagues. Garber attributes the league’s growth to an emphasis on faith, values and equal playing time, as well as competitive play. He said the program stresses sportsmanship, teamwork, positive attitudes, and the development of life skills, in addition to competitive hockey. While the program emphasizes life teachings based on Biblical principles and truths, and the message of salvation through Jesus Christ, children of any denomination are welcome and church membership or attendance is not a requirement or prerequisite. The program is divided into two parts: a six-session camp with different levels for beginners and advanced players; and a 12-week competitive league with four age divisions for boys and girls ages four to 18; as well as an adult league. Camp will be Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings starting Nov. 22. The league starts Dec. 5, featuring one practice per team each week with games on Saturdays through Feb. 25. Free registration is available on an as-needed basis. Visit www.wnwhockey. org for information or online registrations, or call 419-5866531 or e-mail berryhome@ frontier.com.
like a production line with each employee performing a specific task instead of one worker seeing a case all the way through, interim director in Delaware County Angela Thomas tells the newspaper. Overwhelmed by rising caseloads, the counties hope they can improve efficiency by 30 percent. The counties estimate that they will have a combined average of 2,500 new applications per month for food stamps, Medicaid and cash assistance, in addition to 3,600 renewals.

“All forms of totalitarianism try to avoid the strange, the problematic, the critical, the rational. To do so, they must deny the metropolitan spirit, equalize everything in city and country, and retain a center which is not the center of anything because everything else is swallowed up by it.” — Paul Tillich, American theologian (1886-1965)
Most of the unemployed no longer receive benefits
By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON — The jobs crisis has left so many people out of work for so long that most of America’s unemployed are no longer receiving unemployment benefits. Early last year, 75 percent were receiving checks. The figure is now 48 percent — a shift that points to a growing crisis of long-term unemployment. Nearly onethird of America’s 14 million unemployed have had no job for a year or more. Congress is expected to decide by year’s end whether to continue providing emergency unemployment benefits for up to 99 weeks in the hardest-hit states. If the emergency benefits expire, the proportion of the unemployed receiving aid would fall further. The ranks of the poor would also rise. The Census Bureau says unemployment benefits kept 3.2 million people from slipping into poverty last year. It defines poverty as annual income below $22,314 for a family of four. Yet for a growing share of the unemployed, a vote in Congress to extend the benefits to 99 weeks is irrelevant. They’ve had no job for more By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press than 99 weeks. They’re no longer eligible for benefits. Their options include food stamps or other social programs. Nearly 46 million people received food stamps in August, a record total. That figure could grow as more people lose unemployment benefits. So could the government’s disability rolls. Applications for the disability insurance program have jumped about 50 percent since 2007. “There’s going to be increased hardship,” said Wayne Vroman, an economist at the Urban Institute. The number of unemployed has been roughly stable this year. Yet the number receiving benefits has plunged 30 percent. Government unemployment benefits weren’t designed to sustain people for long stretches without work. They usually don’t have to. In the recoveries from the previous three recessions, the longest average duration of unemployment was 21 weeks, in July 1983. By contrast, in the wake of the Great Recession, the figure reached 41 weeks in September. That’s the longest on records dating to 1948. The figure is now 39 weeks. “It was a good safety net for a shorter recession,” said Carl Van Horn, an econo-

IT WAS NEWS THEN
Obama to plug ways for vets to find work
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is promoting new ways to help veterans find jobs in a tough economy while pressing Congress to approve tax credits for businesses to hire former members of the military. Just ahead of Veterans’ Day, Obama plans to meet today with leading veterans’ groups as he discusses steps his administration is taking to help veterans who have struggled to find work. The actions are part of a larger effort by the White House to draw contrasts with congressional Republicans who have opposed Obama’s jobs legislation a year before the 2012 election. Obama has signed executive orders aimed at spurring job growth and helping homeowners and college students in recent weeks, saying he does not want to wait for Congress to act. Obama administration officials said the president would announce that veterans can download a “Veteran Gold Card” issued by the Labor Department that allows former military members to get six months of personalized case management, assessment and counseling at career centers. The White House estimates it could help more than 200,000 unemployed veterans who served after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Obama will also promote a new government website that allows veterans to find specific jobs they’re qualified for along with a jobs bank that lists openings from companies looking to hire veterans. The initiatives are aimed at reducing unemployment among soldiers returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan. The Labor Department estimates that about 12 percent of veterans who served in the military since 9/11 are unemployed, higher than the national average of 9 percent.
Congress moves to create new farm subsidy
WASHINGTON — Farmstate lawmakers are moving to create a whole new subsidy that would protect farmers when their revenue drops — an unprecedented program that critics say could pay billions of dollars to farmers now enjoying record-high crop prices. The subsidy, free insurance that would cover farmers’ “shallow crop losses” before their paid insurance kicks in, has been pushed by corn and soybean farmers who could benefit the most from the program. It would replace for the most part several other subsidy programs, including direct payments preferred by Southern rice and cotton farmers. Growers get the direct payments regardless of crop yields or prices. They don’t even have to farm. The income insurance plan has a diverse group of opponents — environmental groups that have long argued against farm subsidies, conservatives who say the plan won’t save the government much and even one of the nation’s largest farm groups. The American Farm Bureau Federation says the beefedup insurance could encourage farmers to make riskier decisions and drive up the price of land. Top Republicans and Democrats on the House and Senate Agriculture Committees are looking at folding the new subsidy into a farm bill proposal they are quietly crafting as part of their charge by the deficit-cutting congressional supercommittee to cut farm spending. The four lawmakers — Senate Agriculture Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.; Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas; House Agriculture Chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla. and Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn. — have said they will shave $23 billion from farm and food aid programs over the next decade. The new revenue insurance program would be considered part of their effort to achieve that goal. The committee leaders have not yet released the proposal. It is unclear just how the revenue insurance will be crafted and what effort will be made to control its costs. Critics fear a worst-case scenario that would use current, record-high crop prices as a baseline for average revenue. Farmers who suffer minor revenue losses in future years could get major payouts, which could eat up some of
mist at Rutgers University. It assumes “the economy will experience short interruptions and then go back to normal.” Weekly unemployment checks average about $300 nationwide. If the extended benefits aren’t renewed, growth could slow by up to a half-percentage point next year, economists say. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that each $1 spent on unemployment benefits generates up to $1.90 in economic growth. The CBO has found that the program is the most effective government policy for increasing growth among 11 options it’s analyzed. Jon Polis lives in East Greenwich, R.I., one of the 20 states where 99 weeks of benefits are available. He used them all up after losing his job as a warehouse worker in 2008. His benefits paid for groceries, car maintenance and health insurance. Now, Polis, 55, receives disability insurance payments, food stamps and lives in government-subsidized housing. He’s been unable to find work because employers in his field want computer skills he doesn’t have. “Employers are crying that they can’t find qualified help,” he said. But the ones he interviewed with “weren’t willing to train anybody.”
Washington — Republicans aren’t mistaken when they say President Obama is declaring class warfare. He’s been working that turf with a pretty big shovel. How many times have we heard that millionaires and billionaires (as though there were no difference) refuse to pay their fair share? But Republicans are also playing the class card when they insist with equal passion that half of all Americans pay no taxes. Missing from this statement is the word “income,” which would make the assertion truer. But it’s more effective to imply that half the country — i.e., the shiftless and dependent — only want something for nothing. What happens when you win an argument based on half-truths? In politics, it doesn’t matter. Winning is all that matters. In real life, the people lose. Obviously, those who pay no income tax earn so little that taxing their income is viewed as further hardship. But one could argue that a fair tax code would ask all Americans to pitch in at a level commensurate with their ability to ante up, thereby allowing them to be more invested in outcomes. In any case, people who have worked hard and succeeded are not the enemy of those who are doing less well. They are the people we all hope to
The futility of class warfare
the $23 billion in promised savings. Federally subsidized crop insurance programs are now costing taxpayers $7 billion to $8 billion despite the biggest farm profits in nearly four decades. The Agriculture Department predicts net farm income by the end of this year till total $103.6 billion, a rise of 31 percent from 2010. The department says this is the highest value since 1974, adjusted for inflation. Replacing the direct payments seems inevitable. Critics have singled them out and even farm groups now say they are politically indefensible. But critics of the new income insurance subsidy say it could create new problems for taxpayers and farmers alike. “The only rationale for a new federal revenue guarantee program on top of existing revenue insurance programs is that it seems politically easier to defend than direct payments,” said Bruce Babcock, an agricultural economist at Iowa State University. Babcock released a report last week calling revenue insurance a “boondoggle.” The report was commissioned by the Environmental Working Group, an advocacy group that has long opposed federal farm subsidies.
Point of View
emulate. Nevertheless, people are angry, and justifiably. On left and right, they alternatively resent that government is doing too little or too much. Both tea partyers and the Occupy Wall Street crowd are essentially angry about the same things. Both are fundamentally against the establishment. The philosophical differences that have led us to this precipice could be resolved with leadership, but there, too, lies a shortfall. Signing a pledge to never raise taxes, as many Republicans have done, sends an unhelpful message of intransigence to a nation in trouble. Adhering to that pledge, as Senate Republicans did in voting down a jobs bill that would have imposed a 0.7 percent surtax on 345,000 millionaires, seems an act of principle over sense, yet Republicans argue that the bill doesn’t address the fundamental economic issues. Meanwhile, Democrats’ continued insinuation that the rich are robbing the poor is simply disingenuous. Who employs the poor if not
the more prosperous? Who infuses charities with cash but the wealthy? Who grows the economy if not business, now too afraid to part with its money given the current uncertainties? Mitt Romney was excoriated for saying that corporations are people, too. This sort of statement is easy to mock, but it is truer than the one that contends corporations are the enemy of the people. Corporations are made up of people — some heartless, I’ll concede — who nonetheless provide jobs and grow the economy. Capitalism, the ogre of those protesting Wall Street, has suffered a public relations crisis in the wake of the global economic collapse. But any remedy to the systemic corruption that led to the collapse should not displace recognition that capitalism creates wealth. Capitalism, and no other economic system, has raised millions from poverty around the world. The enemy is not really us, Pogo notwithstanding. It is political intransigence in the face of circumstances that can’t be merely wished or spent or taxed away. It is the kind of populist rhetoric that places blame at the feet of a neighbor. The left’s spin that Republicans who have blocked Obama’s jobs bill do so because, as MSNBC’s Ed Schultz proposed, “Republicans hate President Obama more than they love
America,” may get the blood boiling, but it is ridiculous, destructive and juvenile. If one believes, as Republicans do and evidence suggests, that Obama’s policies have made a bad situation terrible, then why wouldn’t the GOP try to block him? Likewise, from a purely political standpoint, Obama may have no choice but to amp up the class warfare rhetoric. Intensity polling shows that Republicans are far more fired up than Democrats as we approach the 2012 election. So Obama is substituting scold and blame for hope and change. We’re not a red/ blue country. We’re a rich/ poor nation, and the president is casting himself as Robin Hood. It’s an ugly gamble that could backfire. People can only sustain anger and resentment for so long, especially when these emotions are fundamentally at odds with the better angels of their identity. Americans are an optimistic, generous lot, confident in their ability to weather difficulties and invent solutions. Ingenuity is in their bones. In the end, they tend to prefer the candidate who can tap into the American reservoir of good will and can-do-ness. The next president won’t likely be the angriest man standing.

DELPHOS — St. John’s opened defense of its 2010 Division VI state football title at Stadium Park Saturday night with an impressive 55-0 shutout of Toledo Ottawa Hills. The Blue Jay offense amassed 405 yards of offense, 258 rushing. They also owned the special teams once again. “We executed in all three facets of the game: offense, defense, special teams. We came in focused on this team; these guys have a lot of playoff experience and they know we can’t overlook anyone,” St. John’s mentor Todd Schulte noted. “They know that we have to take it one game at a time because if you don’t, there is a big chance we won’t be preparing for another week. We did what we wanted to do on both sides of the ball.” For Ottawa Hills coach Chris Hardman, it was a combination of playing a better team and not playing very well. “In the end, they were the better team. A lot of their opponents have said the same thing and you have to give them credit,” Hardman added. “At the same time, we made far too many mistakes to have a chance tonight. Our goal this season was to play a November game and we accomplished that. I hope that with 17 returning starters back for next year, this will only motivate us to work hard, get back into the playoffs next year and move on.” The Blue and Gold defense, which gave up 118 yards of offense, gave up one first down on the first series before forcing a punt, a 60-yard by Michael Geiger, to open their offense at the 20. The Jays (8-3) used 12 plays to get on the scoreboard, all but one of the ground. The big play was a 24-yard connection from junior Mark Boggs (4-of-4, 118 yards) to senior David Lindeman. At the TOH 1, a 4th-andgoal, senior tailback Jordan Bergfeld (6 rushes, 39 yards) took a toss off right tackle and
Andrew Metzger added the point-after for a 42-0 edge with 11 seconds showing in the third canto. After another 3-and-out (Toledo never got past its own 47), the Jays needed three plays to drive 56 yards. At midfield, freshman Nick Martz ran an option to the right side, faked a pitch and got a free shot down the sideline. The PAT missed and the Jays led 48-0 with 8:55 left. The hosts started the next drive at TOH’s 27 — on downs — and the Jays scored the final TD in five plays. At the 11, Warnecke took a sweep left and bowling-balled his way to the end zone with 4:51 left. Metzger added the final point. St. John’s will play Tiffin Calvert, who beat Edon 48-20, at 3 p.m. Saturday at Bowling Green State University.

Bluffton falls to Rose-Hulman in Heartland Conference finals By Meghan Mohr Sports information assistant HANOVER, Ind. - The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology women’s volleyball team continued its impressive Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament run with a 3-0 victory over Bluffton University Sunday at Collier Arena. It marked the Engineers first HCAC title and berth in the upcoming NCAA Regionals. Bluffton ended its season 22-11 overall as RHIT knocked off its third HCAC co-champion in six days. Rose improved to 24-8 and the Engineers will find out who and when they play this morning when the tournament field is announced. The Beaver attack was grounded as trouble in the passing department led to struggles at the net. Nicole Wood (Tiffin/Hopewell-Loudon) and Courtney Zimmerman (Leesburg/Fairfield) tallied four kills apiece while fellow senior Jenna Eshleman (Landisville, Penn./Hempfield) added three kills for the Beavers. For their efforts over the weekend, Eshleman and Zimmerman were both named to the All-Tournament Team. Setting up the Beaver offense was sophomore Kyleigh Whitsel (Sheffield Lake/Brookside) with 15 assists. Whitsel also added 13 digs for Bluffton. Eshleman dug up 14 balls for the Beavers while sophomore Lindsay Krohn (Marysville, Ind./ New Washington) added 12 more digs. Junior libero Heather Schierer (Crescent Springs, Ky./St. Henry) picked up seven digs in the finals.

cer team held Hanover at bay for over 80 minutes but a Panther score with less than nine minutes in regulation gave the home team a 1-0 victory Saturday in the 2011 HCAC championship match. The Beavers finished their record-setting season with an 11-5-2 mark, while Hanover improved to 15-2-2. Much like a heavyweight boxing match, Bluffton and Hanover limited their early offense to a few jabs of which none found the intented target. The Panthers posted a 6-1 advantage in shots but the score remained deadlocked after 45 minutes of action. The first 35 minutes of the second half was more of the same as neither team was able to find the back of the net until Chloe Hutchinson connected with Erin Hancock for the only goal of the match at the 81:31 mark. Bluffton worked to push the contest into extra time but when the final horn sounded, Hanover secured a berth in the upcoming NCAA Regionals thanks to the 1-0 victory. Hanover finished the match with a 21-5 advantage in total shots, including 10-4 on-frame. The Panthers forced all six corner kicks in the match, while the visitors committed two more fouls (8-6). Jessica Ramirez (Archbold) placed two shots on target to lead the Bluffton strikers. Fellow sophomore Maggie Armstrong (Vevay, Ind./Switzerland Cty.) was outstanding in the net, giving the Beavers a chance at their first-ever NCAA tournament appearance while racking up nine saves against a Hanover squad that handled Bluffton 4-1 just a week ago.

HEBRON - Cross country runners from all around the state traveled to National Trail Raceway in Hebron on Saturday for the State Cross Country Championships, including some local runners who matched themselves with some of the best in Ohio. The Van Wert boys cross country team - the only area team to make the trip in Division II - finished in seventh place with 166 points. Springfield Shawnee won the Division II boys race with 101 points, followed by Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary, who had 114 points. The Cougars were paced by junior Jared Fleming, who placed 10th to earn First-Team All-Ohio honors. “I think Jared would say he had an off-day. He had higher expectations than to finish 10th. To finish 10th and be disappointed, most people would think that is crazy. But Jared had high expectations; we were kind of expecting a top-5 finish. Tenth place and All-Ohio is obviously a good way to finish the season. I think it gives him motivation heading into track season,” Van Wert coach Brendon Moody said. Next for the Cougars was freshman Connor Holliday, who placed 25th in 16:45 to
Bluffton moves into HCAC finals with 5-set win over MSJ By Meghan Mohr Sports information assistant HANOVER, Ind. - The Bluffton University volleyball team moved into the HCAC tournament finals when it defeated Mount St. Joseph in a 5-set thriller on Saturday. Offensively, the senior trio once again led the Beavers to victory with their play at the net. Jenna Eshleman (Landisville, Penn./Hempfield) slammed 15 kills in the match, Courtney Zimmerman (Leesburg/Fairfield) was nearly flawless with 11 kills and Nicole Wood (Tiffin/Hopewell-Loudon) added 10 bombers for the victors. Zimmerman had just one error while hitting .588 against the Lions. Setting up the Beaver attack was sophomore Kyleigh Whitsel (Sheffield Lake/Brookside) with 43 assists on the night. The Bluffton defense was in overdrive this night as five players finished with double-digit digs. Junior libero Heather Schierer (Crescent Springs, Ky./St. Henry) and Eshleman paced the Beavers with 23 digs apiece. Whitsel had 12 digs, while sophomore Hailey Phillips (Malinta/Patrick Henry) added 11 digs. Zimmerman scooped up 10 digs and Wood just missed a double-double with nine pickups.

Van Wert’s Jared Fleming crosses the finish line at the State Cross Country Championships in Hebron Saturday.

seniors Nathan Stevens (91st, 17:38) and Luke Brubaker (104th, 17:47). Rounding out the Cougar runners were freshmen Nick Keber (107th, 17:50) and Connor Shaffer (125th, 18:11). “We were excited. I talked to them immediately after the race and they were asking where we finished. I told them we were probably anywhere from third to 10th. It was just a tight race; it’s always hard to tell from what’s going on in the chute. To run the way we did and come in seventh, it was a solid performance. It was a good thing to build off of,” Moody asserted. Sophomore Andi Foster the lone runner for Van Wert in the Division II girls race - finished 71st with a time of 20:16. “It was a great experience for her. It’s difficult to go into a race when you have to run by yourself and not really having a team to surround you. I think she handled it pretty well. She didn’t get out as well as she has been in the past few races but she put herself in the top half and stayed there. She ran a solid race...It was definitely a good experience for her,” Moody said. Moody said getting an opportunity to run in the state meet will help Foster moving forward. “I think it gives her good focus as to what she is capable of next year. It was a good
way for her to end the season. To end the season at that level is always good,” he added. Crestview freshman Mycah Grandstaff had a good showing in as an individual in the boys Division III race as well - placing 55th in 17:04. Grandstaff was the third freshman to finish. “It was great; it was awesome,” Grandstaff said. “It was probably my best week of practice, I ran my best 2-mile this week. So, I came into this race and ran my best race ever.” Kalida’s Jessica Doepker improved her status on the podium from last fall (16th at state in 2010) with an 8thplace finish this time around (19:06.51) in the Division III girls race. The Columbus Grove boys ended up seventh (196 points). Junior Jake Graham’s 30th placing (16:42.81) — up from last season’s 36th as an individual — was the top performance, along with junior Alex Shafer (32nd; 16:44.09), freshman Colton Grothaus (76th; 17:19.69), junior Grant Schroeder (95th, 17:46.03), freshman Jerry Kesselmeyer (97th, 17:46.45), junior Nick Schmiesing (116th, 18:16.38) and lone senior Josh Stephens (127th, 18:39.43). With all that youth gaining experience at the state meet, 2012 bodes well for head man Terry Schnipke and his crew.

4-game win streak come to an abrupt end on Saturday inside of Justin F. Coressel Stadium, as Manchester kept the Jackets off the scoreboard until the fourth quarter in a 32-6 defeat. The visiting Spartans used a balanced attack in the victory, racking up 216 rushing yards, 140 yards through the air and four field goals to take control. MC used field goals from 32, 37, 40 and 42 yards out, along with a 38-yard touchdown strike to build an 18-0 advantage late in the third quarter. Another Manchester score at the 6:11 mark of the final period extended the spread to 25-0 before Defiance found the end zone with a 14-yard scamper from Rick Powell for the Jackets’ lone score of the afternoon. MC would answer 56 seconds later with its third and final touchdown of the contest, capping the scoring and handing the Purple and Gold a 32-6 setback. Drew Kuesel averaged 5.7 yards per carry in the loss, ending with 80 yards on 14 touches, while Powell ran it 16 times for 31 yards and the lone score. Blaine McGowan paced the Yellow Jacket defense with nine total stops, with Matt Forry adding eight hits and Mason Foulk ending with six tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Josh Slayton had six tackles and a pair of pass breakups. Defiance (4-5, 4-3 HCAC) will close its 2011 campaign Saturday when it hosts Bluffton (4-5, 4-3 HCAC) for a 1:30 p.m. start.

Book gives look at Giffords recovery
PHOENIX (AP) — When President George H.W. Bush came to visit her in the hospital, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords could say only “Wow!” and another word she had been uttering frequently at the time, “chicken.” Months later, when she was shown photos of famous people to see if she recognized faces, Giffords looked at Arnold Schwarzenegger and replied, more or less accurately: “Messin’ around. Babies.” These and other details emerge in a new book written by Giffords and her husband that offers the most personal look yet at her slow, agonizing recovery after being shot in the head at point-blank range. The memoir, titled “Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope,” describes Giffords’ efforts over the past 10 months to relearn how to walk and talk, and her painful discovery that six people were killed in the Jan. 8 attack outside a Tucson grocery store. The Associated Press purchased an advance copy of the book, which is set for release Nov. 15. The book is written from the perspective of her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly. But Giffords herself delivers the last chapter — a single page of short sentences and phrases called “Gabby’s Voice” in which she says her goal is to get back to Congress. “I will get stronger. I will return,” she wrote. The book also reveals that the couple, who got married in 2007, was trying to have a baby. Giffords, 41, had undergone several rounds of fertility treatments in the last few years and had hoped to get pregnant early in 2011. The book does not say whether Giffords will seek re-election next year. Kelly said the couple did not want to rush a decision. The deadline to formally declare her intentions is in May. Aides have repeatedly emphasized that her focus is on recovery and that there is no timetable for making a decision about her political future. The Arizona Democrat was shot just days after being sworn in for her third term. Giffords stunned colleagues by appearing on the House floor Aug. 1 to vote for the debt ceiling deal, but she has largely avoided the public eye, spending most of her time at TIRR Memorial Hermann, a rehabilitation center in Houston. Giffords recently competed two weeks of intensive therapy sessions in Asheville, N.C., and returned to Houston on Friday evening, her staff said in a statement. Some Democrats had hoped that Giffords would use her newfound fame to run for the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Jon Kyl. But a Democratic strategist said Giffords has told Democrats in Arizona that she will not seek a Senate seat. The strategist spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss her

Singer Andy Williams says he has bladder cancer
BRANSON, Mo. (AP) — Singer Andy Williams told the crowd at his Christmas show Saturday night that he has bladder cancer. The Tri-Lakes News reports the 83-year-old Williams appeared early in the show at the Moon River Theatre and vowed to return next year to celebrate his 75th year in show business. “I do have cancer of the bladder,” Williams said. “But that is no longer a death sentence. People with cancer are getting through this thing. They’re kicking it, and they’re winning more and more every year. And I’m going to be one of them.” The silver-haired “Moon River” singer missed planned performances this fall with an undisclosed medical condition and the theater announced recently that he would likely miss his holiday schedule as well because of the condition. The newspaper reported he has not started treatment, though it did not identify the person who provided that information. Williams’ appearance Saturday was a surprise and brought a standing ovation from a nearly full house. The golden-voiced singer had a string of hits in the 1950s and ‘60s, including “Can’t Get Used to Losing You” and “Butterfly, but he is best known for his version of “Moon River.” He earned 18 gold and three platinum albums in his career. Williams hosted annual Christmas specials on television and performed Christmas shows on the road for many years. His 1963 recording, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” is a
plans. In the memoir, Kelly recounts trying to tell his wife several times that she had been shot while meeting with constituents. But she didn’t fully understand until March 12. Kelly asked Giffords if she remembered being shot, and she replied that she did, although he said it was hard to know if she really did. She described what she recalled with three words: “Shot. Shocked. Scary.” Later that day, Kelly told her that six other people had been killed. Giffords was overcome with emotion and had trouble getting through her therapy. It wasn’t until July, weeks after being released from the Houston hospital to Kelly’s home 25 miles away, that she learned who had been killed: a staff member, a federal judge, a 9-year-old girl and three other people Giffords did not know. Twelve other people were wounded.

‘Puss in Boots’ stomps ‘Tower Heist’ at box office
By DERRIK J. LANG The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — “Puss in Boots” pounced on “Tower Heist” and “Harold & Kumar” at the box office. The DreamWorks 3-D animated film, distributed by Paramount Pictures, earned $33 million in its second weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. The PG-rated film centering on the swashbuckling feline voiced by Antonio Banderas from the “Shrek” series surprisingly toppled the weekend’s two new releases, bringing its total haul to $75 million. Universal’s PG-13 revenge romp “Tower Heist” starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy palmed $25.1 million in the No. 2 spot, while the Warner Bros. R-rated sequel “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas” with John Cho and Kal Penn unwrapped $13 million at No. 3. Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com, said family films are tough to beat out. “From the re-release earlier this fall of ‘The Lion King’ to ‘Dolphin Tale’ and now ‘Puss in Boots,’ it seems that the family audience is the one you can really count on right now,” said Dergarabedian. “I think the cavalry is definitely on the way though. We’ve got ‘Immortals’ and another ‘Twilight’ coming up, as well as a bunch of big releases in December.” Anne Globe, head of worldwide marketing and consumer products at DreamWorks, said the decision to move up the opening of “Puss in Boots” to last weekend is one reason why the film experienced just a 3-percent drop, the smallest ever for a non-holiday film, ahead of the 10-percent dip for “Twister” during its second weekend of release in 1996. “To be No. 1 again is really extraordinary,” said Globe. “It’s really an unparalleled hold driven by our two-weekend release strategy, which was pretty unprecedented in and of itself. That and the amazing word of mouth has given us tremendous momentum into November, which is a better play period for an event-level movie like ‘Puss in Boots.”’ Another animated film dominated outside of North America. “The Adventures of Tintin,” which is being distributed overseas by Sony Pictures and Paramount Pictures, scooped up $40.8 million as it grew from 19 to 45 international markets. The 3-D film, directed by Steven Spielberg and adapted from the Belgian comic series, opens Dec. 21 in the United States. The 20th Century Fox sci-fi thriller “In Time” starring Justin Timberlake fell to No. 5 in U.S. after opening at No. 3 last weekend. “In Time” clocked better numbers overseas, earning $16.6 million in 53 markets for a second-place finish behind “The Adventures of Tintin,” while “Puss in Boots” scratched out third place with $15 million in five inter-

He published an autobiography, “Moon River and Me: A Memoir,” in 2009. Williams sang “The Christmas Song” (known as “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”) at the theater he started in 1992 and said he would be back next September and October to celebrate. “I’m going to do the shows I’ve planned to do,” he said.

Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2011 Provided you are more concerned about gaining material security in the year ahead than you are about being popular, you should be able to make significant gains in your work or career. Be pragmatic about your goals. sCoRPIo (oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Procrastinating on things you know must get done will invite trouble down the line. The extra time you now have at your disposal will fly by, never to be retrieved again. saGITTaRIus (Nov. 23dec. 21) -- Attempting to do only what you can get away with for the moment might be very appealing, but the things you fail to do will quickly catch up with you and cause all kinds of trouble. CaPRICoRN (dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Underestimating the caliber of your competition is foolhardy. Those you think you can easily vanquish whenever you choose might take you out instead if you’re unprepared. aQuaRIus (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It’s imperative that you keep an open mind to all contingencies. Harboring negative, pre-conceived ideas will needlessly work to your detriment, and be your greatest stumbling block. PIsCes (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Instead of continually letting an existing obligation weigh heavily, get it out of your mind and life once and for all. You’ll lift a great weight off your shoulders if you do. aRIes (March 21-april 19) -- Partnership arrangements could prove to be far more tetchy than usual, mostly because each party could dig in and take unyielding positions. Go it alone if you can. TauRus (april 20-May 20) -- Obstacles in your path could be far more prevalent than usual, but if you’re doubly alert you should be able to get past them with little trouble. Keep your weather eye open! GeMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Avoid getting involved in social situations that are replete with people who make you feel very uncomfortable. Don’t open yourself up to misery and feelings of exclusion. CaNCeR (June 21-July 22) -- Unless you are truly motivated to do something in particular, you could have trouble getting into gear, making this day an extremely boring one for you. Find a fun goal to chase after. Leo (July 23-aug. 22) -- Take care not to think of yourself as an underdog, especially when in a challenging position. What you envision is what you’ll unconsciously bring into being. vIRGo (aug. 23-sept. 22) -- The family budget will suffer considerably if you or other family members ignore your pledge to be prudent, and needlessly spend monies you can’t afford. Be watchful. LIBRa (sept. 23-oct. 23) -- If you’ve been pushy, uncooperative or moody with friends lately, you could find yourself with an open dancing card. The gang isn’t likely to tolerate spoilers; get back in character. WedNesday, Nov. 9, 2011 During the coming year, someone with considerable influence might help you achieve more recognition in your chosen field of endeavor. Nurture any relationship that can help you get to where you want to go. sCoRPIo (oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Important matters you negotiate will work out to everyone’s satisfaction if you get everyone playing off the same sheet notes. Show them how to make beautiful music together. saGITTaRIus (Nov. 23-dec. 21) -- Two ambitions that have been looking questionable can easily be fulfilled if you keep your eyes on the prize. Focus will be the key to your success. CaPRICoRN (dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Being a bit of a risk-taker can be both good and bad, depending on how you handle things. If you gamble on yourself, it’ll be OK, but wagering on others could be another story. aQuaRIus (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you have an important matter hanging fire, it behooves you to press for closure while things are going your way. Don’t hesitate to be firm in your commitment. PIsCes (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You have a special ability to sway others to your way of thinking and doing things. You can easily convince them to back you in whatever important project you choose. aRIes (March 21-april 19) -Don’t waste the day playing or doing nothing, because it could be one of your better times for developing financial and material opportunities. You need to make hay while the sun shines. TauRus (april 20-May 20) -- Whether you’re the quiet type or one who makes a lot of noise, your presence is apt to be far more strongly felt than usual. You’re likely to make a statement that won’t go unnoticed. GeMINI (May 21-June 20) -Being both pragmatic and prudent gives you an edge in dealing with financial conditions. This is clearly a day to sit down and work on moneymaking possibilities. CaNCeR (June 21-July 22) -- You may need reminding how essential it is to be hopeful regarding the outcomes of important matters. Positive thinking will work wonders. Leo (July 23-aug. 22) -- Don’t shy away from competitive situations, because challenges stimulate you to accomplish big things. When you try, Lady Luck will get involved in your interests. vIRGo (aug. 23-sept. 22) -- In order to spur you onward, you should find some challenging outlets that stimulate you both physically and mentally. It’ll be just such kinds of situations that can encourage and inspire you. LIBRa (sept. 23-oct. 23) -- This could be an extremely productive day for you, but not necessarily from your own doing. You’re likely to be in the right spot at the right time to profit from the activities of others.

US wealth gap between young, old is widest ever
By HOPE YEN Associated Press WASHINGTON — The wealth gap between younger and older Americans has stretched to the widest on record, worsened by a prolonged economic downturn that has wiped out job opportunities for young adults and saddled them with housing and college debt. The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released today. While people typically accumulate assets as they age, this wealth gap is now more than double what it was in 2005 and nearly five times the 10-to-1 disparity a quarter-century ago, after adjusting for inflation. The analysis reflects the impact of the economic downturn, which has hit young adults particularly hard. More are pursuing college or advanced degrees, taking on debt as they wait for the job market to recover. Others are struggling to pay mortgage costs on homes now worth less than when they were bought in the housing boom. While the wealth gap has been widening gradually due to delayed marriage and increases in single parenting among young adults, the housing bust and recession have made it significantly worse. For young adults, the main asset is their home. Their housing wealth dropped 31 percent from 1984, the result of increased debt and falling home values. In contrast, Americans 65 or older were more likely to have bought homes long before the housing boom and thus saw a 57 percent gain in housing wealth even after the bust. Older Americans are staying in jobs longer, while young adults now face the highest unemployment since World War II. As a result, the median income of older-age households since 1967 has grown at four times the rate of those headed by the under35 age group. Social Security benefits account for 55 percent of the annual income for older-age households, unchanged since 1984. The retirement benefits, which are indexed for inflation, have been a consistent source of income even as safety-net benefits for other groups such as low-income students have failed to keep up with rising costs or begun to fray. The congressional supercommittee that is proposing budget cuts has been reviewing whether to trim college aid programs, such as by restricting eligibility or charging students interest on loans while they are still in school. Sheldon Danziger, a University of Michigan public policy professor who specializes in poverty, noted skyrocketing college tuition costs, which come as many strapped state governments cut support for public universities. Federal spending on Pell Grants to low-income students has risen somewhat, but covers a diminishing share of the actual cost of attending college. “The elderly have a comprehensive safety net that most adults, especially young adults, lack,” Danziger said. Paul Taylor, director of Pew Social & Demographic Trends and co-author of the analysis, said the report shows that today’s young adults are starting out in life in a very tough economic position. “If this pattern continues, it will call into question one of the most basic tenets of the American Dream — the idea that each generation does better than the one that came before,” he said. Other findings: —Households headed by someone under age 35 had their median net worth reduced by 27 percent in 2009 as a result of unsecured liabilities, mostly a combination of credit card debt and student loans. No other age group had anywhere near that level of unsecured liability acting as a drag on net worth; the next closest was the 35-44 age group, at 10 percent. —Wealth inequality is increasing within all age groups. Among the youngerage households, those living in debt have grown the fastest while the share of households with net worth of at least $250,000 edged up slightly to 2 percent. Among the older-age households, the share of households worth at least $250,000 rose to 20 percent from 8 percent in 1984; those living in debt were largely unchanged at 8 percent. Today, the Census Bureau planned to release new 2010 figures that will show a big increase in poverty for Americans 65 or older due to rising out-of-pocket medical expenses. Currently, about 9 percent of older Americans fall below the poverty line, based on the official definition put out in September, but that number did not factor in everyday costs such as health care and commuting. The new supplemental figures will show poverty to be higher than previously known for several groups, although they may not fully reflect longer-term changes. For instance, a recent working paper by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that U.S. spending on the safety net from 1984 to 2004 shifted notably toward programs benefiting the nearpoor rather than the extreme poor and to the elderly rather than younger adults. That trend, which has continued since 2004, has led to faster increases in poverty over time for some of the underserved groups. Robert Moffitt, a profes-
