RENO, Nev. — A cloud
of grayish-white smoke set-
tled over upscale homes and
horse pastures at Reno’s edge
Friday as firefighters from
across Nevada came close to
taming a sudden wildfire that
sent 16 people to hospitals
and destroyed or damaged 25
The unexplained blaze
also gave a firefighter first-
and second-degree burns and
was blamed for the death of
a 74-year-old man who had
a heart attack while trying to
flee, but authorities said the
worst was likely over as grow-
ing snow flurries and falling
temperatures stoked hopes the
remaining showers of ember
and ash would die down.
Reno Fire Chief Mike
Hernandez said firefight-
ers had largely contained the
blaze that sent nearly 10,000
people from their homes in the
middle of the night and sent
flames licking the edges of the
region’s mountain roads.
“We are actually backtrack-
ing and going over areas that
have burned and extinguishing
hot spots,” Hernandez said.
The cause of the blaze
wasn’t known, but a downed
power line or homeless
encampments in the area
might be to blame, Hernandez
said. He said the region is also
a popular area for teenagers
who might have started the
fire to stay warm.
At least 400 firefighters
from as far as 260 miles away
flocked to Reno early Friday
as multiple fires roared from
the Sierra Nevada foothills
in northwestern Nevada and
spread to the valley floor.
Flames reached 50 feet high
and embers pushed by the
wind traveled up to a mile.
Police went house-to-
house, pounding on doors and
urging residents to evacuate in
the dark of the night.
Hernandez said residents
ran from their homes dressed
in pajamas, frantically trying
to grab as many possessions
as possible. One elderly man
dressed in his underwear ran
out with a blanket wrapped
around his body.
“The people are in a state of
shock and are hanging in there,”
Gov. Brian Sandoval said.
Dick Hecht said that when
he escaped from his home
with his wife, “the whole
mountain was on fire,” and it
was so windy he could barely

couldn’t hardly see,” Hecht

Regardless of how much you don’t want it
to be, the holiday shopping season is upon us.
With the prevalent economic chaos, the
dollar is going to be heavily catered to.
Here’s a few reasons to save a bunch of
driving time you could use doing more pro-
ductive and less expensive things from sus-
1. Buy Local - Support yourself: Several
studies have shown that when you buy from
an independent, locally owned business, rather
than a nationally owned businesses, signifi-
cantly more of your money is used to make
purchases from other local businesses, service
providers and farms - continuing to strengthen
the economic base of the community.
2. Support community groups: Non-profit
organizations receive an average 250 percent
more support from smaller business owners
than they do from large businesses.
3. Keep our community unique: Where
we shop, where we eat and have fun - all of
it makes our community home. Our one-of-
a-kind businesses are an integral part of the
distinctive character of this place. Our tourism
businesses also benefit.
4. Reduce environmental impact: Locally
owned businesses can make more local pur-
chases requiring less transportation and gen-
erally set up shop in town or city centers as
opposed to developing on the fringe. This
generally means contributing less to sprawl,
congestion, habitat loss and pollution.
5. Create more good jobs: Small local busi-
nesses are the largest employer nationally and
in our community, provide the most jobs to
6. Get better service: Local businesses often
hire people with a better understanding of the
products they are selling and take more time to
get to know customers.
7. Invest in community: Local businesses
are owned by people who live in this com-
munity, are less likely to leave and are more
invested in the community’s future.
8. Put your taxes to good use: Local busi-
nesses in town centers require comparatively
little infrastructure investment and make more
efficient use of public services as compared
to nationally owned stores entering the com-
9. Buy what you want, not what someone
wants you to buy: A marketplace of tens of
thousands of small businesses is the best way
to ensure innovation and low prices over the
long-term. A multitude of small businesses,
each selecting products based not on a national
sales plan but on their own interests and the
needs of their local customers, guarantees a
much broader range of product choices.
10. Encourage local prosperity: A growing
body of economic research shows that in an
increasingly homogenized world, entrepre-
neurs and skilled workers are more likely to
invest and settle in communities that preserve
their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive

SENDAI, Japan (AP) —
From 1,000 feet (300 meters)
up, the view of the tsuna-
mi-battered Japanese seaside
communities shows striking
progress: much of the rubble,
crumpled cars and other debris
is gone.
Yet seen from a helicop-
ter Friday carrying Associated
Press journalists, there are
few signs of rebuilding eight
months after the March 11
disaster, triggered by a mag-
nitude-9.0 earthquake off the
tsunami-prone coast.
What remains — the stark,
gray emptiness where bus-
tling towns once stood — is
a sobering reminder of how
much work still lies ahead.
On the ground, people liv-
ing in the tidy rows of tem-
porary houses that dot the
surrounding areas say they
are frustrated that authorities
aren’t moving ahead more
quickly with reconstruction
plans. They are anxious to
rebuild their lives, yet remain
uncertain of how to proceed.
“I want to leave this place
as soon as possible and move
into our own house, but the
feeling I’m getting from the
banks and government is
that’s going to be hard,” said
Yuki Numakura, 36, from
Natori, near Sendai, who
shares a unit with her mother,
brother, grandmother and pet
dog Seven.
Prime Minister Yoshihiko
Noda’s government plans to
spend at least 18 trillion yen
($234 billion) over the next
five years to fund the recon-
struction, 6 trillion yen of
which has been approved by
parliament. So far, the govern-
ment has built 51,886 tempo-
rary houses — almost all of
the 52,500 needed — in seven
prefectures (states) affected by
the disaster.
Ultimately, decisions about
reconstruction of each town
fall to local town leaders, but
uncertainty about the extent and
speed of aid from the central
government has caused some
towns to move cautiously.
The towns have just begun
to come out with longer-term
reconstruction plans, which
include input from residents
and seek ways to better protect
their communities from future
tsunamis. Many are also reluc-
tant to rebuild in low-lying
areas for fear that another mas-
sive wave may strike again
sooner or later, given that four
have hit the coastline in the
last 120 years.

MANILA, Philippines (AP)
— Philippine police today
prepared to take mugshots
and fingerprints of former
President Gloria Macapagal
Arroyo after arresting her in
a hospital room on electoral
fraud charges.
Seventeen months after
stepping down, Arroyo
became the second ex-Phil-
ippine president to face trial.
She denies wrongdoing and
accuses authorities of prevent-
ing her from seeking overseas
medical treatment for a bone
Police served an arrest war-
rant in Arroyo’s 16th-floor
hospital suite late Friday.
It capped a day of legal
drama in which the Supreme
Court upheld her right to
travel but a lower court later
accepted the formal charges
against her. The government
rushed the case in court, say-
ing Arroyo may be trying to
evade justice.
Police official James
Bucayu, who served the
warrant, said Arroyo will be
booked in her hospital room
today “when she is ready.”
He said the former presi-
dent was lying down Friday
and did not speak.
“She only nodded when
we read her warrant of arrest
and violation for electoral
sabotage,” he said. “We left
two policemen there as guards
after verifying other possible
exits in the room.”
Her lawyer, Ferdinand
Topacio, said the government
had filed fabricated charges
with “indecent haste.” He said
he would start filing appeals
when courts reopen Monday.
Arroyo, 64, has been
recovering in a hospital since
her failed attempt to leave the
country Tuesday, and Justice
Secretary Leila de Lima said
she will remain confined to
her hospital room.
“They are not going to,
let’s say, handcuff her and
take her out of the room,”
de Lima said. “We will not
object to hospital arrest.”
Arroyo successor and
staunch critic, President
Benigno Aquino III, was
overwhelmingly elected on
promises to rid the Philippines
of corruption and has said he
wants to start with Arroyo.
The election fraud charg-
es carry a maximum pen-
alty of 40 years in prison.
Arroyo legal spokesman Raul
Lambino said the case against
her “is a high form of injus-
Filipino police to fngerprint arrested ex-leader

DELPHOS — Having
attended college to study
computers in the late 1960s,
Teresa Bradstock, 61, discov-
ered she didn’t want to wire
boards or punch keys for the
rest of her life. So, she joined
the military. In those days,
women were kept away from
battle fields. This enabled
Bradstock to gain valuable
life and job experience in a
peaceful, stateside setting on
the Eastern seaboard.
Stationed near Baltimore
for most of her three year
enlistment, Bradstock’s induc-
tion began at Fort McClellan,
Ala. In 1968, women were
somewhat segregated from
men. The United States
Army divided its female
soldiers into the Women’s
Army Corps. Until then, there
weren’t enough women in
the army to need more than
four companies in basic train-
ing. However, the ongoing
war gave the army a need for
more women, so Bradstock
was among the first to form a
fifth company.
“Ideas about women in
the military were changing.
They had a war going on
in Vietnam and wanted the
men over there. They needed
people to do the jobs back
home, so more women were
coming into the army. We
were all at Fort McClellan for
basic training; I was in “echo”
company and that was the
first time they went beyond
“delta,” she said.
Bradstock learned to adapt
when caught off guard because
she didn’t start training with
an accurate expectation.
“Basic was quite a sur-
prise; I was not expecting the
24-hour-a-day regimentation.
We had no free time to speak
of and when we had any, we
had to spend it shining our
shoes or brass or cleaning
the barracks. We did a lot of
starching and ironing; we had
no free time to speak of,” she
After graduation, Bradstock
was assigned to work in mili-
tary intelligence and trained
as an analyst. Her first of
two assignments took her to
Chesapeake Bay.
“I got to my first assign-
ment at Fort Holabird in
Dundalk, Md. I was an order
of battle analyst, which is a
military intelligence term for
determining the size of enemy
units in Vietnam based on
the intelligence they sent us
but I wasn’t in that because
I wasn’t in the field. I got
switched to operations spe-
cialist because I worked at the
intelligence school. We had to
have intelligence training and
clearance because we were
there and we did see and hear
things but we were basically
secretaries,” she said. “We
did the support work others
needed to train students; it
was like being support staff
at a university. We worked on
class syllabi, scheduling and
things like that because the
army was updating programs
of instruction to adapt to gue-
rilla warfare. Everything we
had been taught was based
on World War II, which was
a very different type of war
than Vietnam.”
The Baltimore area was
the first city Bradstock had
ever lived in. She enjoyed the
urban lifestyle of using pub-
lic transportation and walking
nearly everywhere and going
to museums she may not have
otherwise visited. She espe-
cially appreciated being sur-
rounded with diversity.
“I loved meeting people
who were not from this imme-
diate area. I met people from
California, up and down the
east coast, across the south,
Alaska, Hawaii and Guam;
we had foreign officers from
places like Jordan and all over
the world,” she said.
Bradstock said it was
enriching to be in close quar-
ters with people from different
walks of life and world views
but meeting men who had
completed tours in Vietnam
is what she said really woke
her up.
“It was a rude awakening
to realize what a war is. When
the guys came back, they were
different. You could see it on
their faces; they were really
quiet and they didn’t smile
— there wasn’t much humor
in the world right then,” she
Bradstock realized there is
a gap between information
and personal experience. She
felt connected to her fellow
soldiers by trying to envision
their experience from their
vantage point.
“Most of the men had been
drafted and they knew they
were going to Vietnam. They
had been briefed and knew
what to expect; they knew
it wouldn’t be pleasant but
it was quite an awakening
for them. When they came
back — if they came back —
you could tell they had been
through a lot. You could tell
they had a camaraderie,” she
Bradstock was at the
school until it relocated and
she was transferred to the US
Field Activities Command in
Washington, D.C. She spent
eight months there until she
was discharged in November
“When I went to Alexandria,
Va., nobody was supposed to
know I was in the military, so
I lived in an apartment and
didn’t wear a uniform. I had
an office building to report to
and was told to not talk about
my work,” she said. “I can
say that we handled the spies
— we knew where everyone
was. We were even in Iran at
the time. Tehran was a plush
assignment back then because
the shah was still in power
and we were friends with him;
that was our big listening post
for Soviet surveillance.”
When she got out of the
army, Bradstock came back to
Delphos but missed Baltimore.
So, she moved there the fol-
lowing year and met her late
husband, Brad. The couple
would settle in Delphos to run
Stallkamp Drugs in 1978.

Preparations Being
Made For Blackout
In preparation for the next
blackout which is to be held
here in the near future in con-
nection with the statewide air
raid test, Fire Chief Lewis
Leonard is making a plea
to all regular volunteer fire-
men and all civilian defense
auxiliary firemen to report
immediately at the fire station
at the city building as soon
as the first warning siren is
In case of a fire during the
blackout period, the fire siren
is sounded which makes it
necessary for firemen to be
on duty at the city building or
at their assigned stations. One
fire truck is located at the city
building during the air raid
tests and one is located at the
Connelly grocery on Suthoff
street to take care of fire calls
south of the Pennsylvania

desirous of having the full
cooperation of every regular

Rationing of Stoves
Local persons who want
to purchase stoves after
August 24 must secure a cer-
tificate from the Delphos War
Price and Rationing Board.
Announcement was made
Thursday that the nationwide
rationing of domestic cook-
ing and heating stoves will
become effective August 24.
Beginning that date, OPA
said, stove which burn coal,
wood, oil or gas will be avail-
able for consumer purchase
only upon issuance of ration-
ing board certificates. The pro-
gram will supplant the present
rationing of coal and wood
heating stoves in 32 states and
the District of Columbia.
Dealers and distributors
will be required to register
with boards in their areas and
will file current inventories of
rationed stoves so that region-
al quotas can be assigned.
Quotas will depend on the
number of stoves which the
War Production Board makes
available by manufacture as
well as by the past use of
stoves and other factors.

Forces On Furlough
Entitled To Special Rations
Members of the armed
forces going on furlough or
official leave for more than
72 hours and who plan to
eat at least one meal at a
private residence are entitled
to special ration certificates
for food, either to be con-
sumed directly or to be used
to replace rations provided
them as guests.
Furthermore, it is no lon-
ger necessary for soldiers,
sailors, marines and coast
guardsmen to spend part of
their leave seeing a ration
board to obtain special allot-
ments. The groundwork is
all done before he leaves his
camp, post, ship or station.
The procedure is as fol-
The serviceman (or
woman) makes out an appli-
cation for extra off-the-base
rations at the time he applies
for his furlough or pass. The
period for which service
men’s special ration allow-
ances are computed is three
days covering nine meals.
The application for extra
rations is taken either by the
serviceman or the house-
holder to the rationing board
where special certificates are

Army Mail is
Being Delayed
Persons having loved ones
fighting in the European the-
atre of war are being urged
not to become alarmed if
they do not receive letters
from them for long periods of
time. The army postal service
reveals that mail deliveries
on the Western Front and
“in certain active areas in the
Pacific” have been greatly
hampered in recent weeks.
The delays, involving
“millions of pieces of mail to
large numbers of American
troops”, and including non-
delivering of some Christmas
packages, have resulted from
difficulties in handling trans-
porting and delivery “occa-
sioned by recent sharp com-
bat activities in the areas,” the
postal service said.
A record total of
62,000,000 Christmas pack-
ages were sent overseas to
army personnel all over the
world, the postal service said,
and field reports indicate
more than 90 percent were
delivered to the addresses
prior to Christmas day.

Additional Gas for
Victory Gardeners
The Delphos War Price
and Rationing Board will start
on March 26 to accept appli-
cations of victory gardeners
for extra gasoline rations.
The Office of Price
Administration announced
that victory gardeners would
again be eligible to obtain
extra gasoline to transport
them to and from their vic-
tory garden plots.
Conditions for getting the
conditional gas are the same
as they have been except for
the new restriction that the
garden must be within 15
miles of the gardener’s home
or place of work.
The Office of Price
Administration explained
that a victory gardener nor-
mally can’t properly tend his
garden if it is outside the 15
mile radius.
Other conditions are:
1. Applicant’s garden must
contain at least 1,500 square
feet devoted to the production
of vegetables.
2. The ration issued may
not provide mileage in excess
of 300 miles during the six
month period following date
of application.
3. The applicant must show
that no alternative means of
transportation is available.
4. The applicant must show
that a ride-sharing arrange-
ment has been made or that

About Farmers
Who Slaughter Meat
It is estimated that meat
production for 1945 will be
two million pounds less than
1944. The army requirements
for meat are taken from the
federal inspected large pack-
ing plants and therefore civil-
ian supplies will be more
dependent on local farm
slaughter than ever before.
For that reason, H.G.
Bogart, District Director of the
Toledo OPA, reminds farmers
who slaughter meat that they
are subject to the provisions
of wartime rationing which
affect meat obtained from
any other legitimate source.
However, Mr. Bogart added,
“Farm families who raise ani-
mals for their own use are
not required to give up points
for meat from these animals
if home or custom slaugh-
tered. Farm families may also
borrow and lend meat with-
out exchanging points. But
when rationed cuts of home
slaughtered meats are sold or
given away, red points must
be collected by the farmer
and turned into the local War
Price and Rationing Board.
All farmers who sell
rationed meat may get from
their War Price and Rationing
Board the Official Table of
Point Values. Smaller cuts
are listed on the consumer
table, large cuts or carcasses
on the trade point value table.
Both are printed on the same
sheet. Families buying meat
from a farmer may use as
many as 18 red stamps from
each book in advance of the
general validation dates. This
gives the consumer 180 extra
points per book for buying
farm meat in large quantities.

— The blockbuster drug
Avastin should no longer be
used in advanced breast can-
cer patients because there’s
no proof that it extends their
lives or even provides enough
temporary benefit to outweigh
its dangerous side effects, the
government declared Friday.
The ruling by the Food
and Drug Administration was
long expected, but it was cer-
tain to disappoint women who
say they’ve run out of other
options as their breast can-
cer spread through their bod-
ies. Impassioned patients had
lobbied furiously to preserve
Avastin as a last shot.
But repeated studies found
the drug had only a small
effect on tumor growth. The
research didn’t show evidence
that patients lived any longer
or had a better quality of life
than if they had taken standard
chemotherapy. The FDA con-
cluded that the drug presented
an array of risks, including
severe high blood pressure,
massive bleeding, heart attack
or heart failure, along with
perforations in the stomach
and intestines.
“I did not come to this
decision lightly,” said the
FDA commissioner, Dr.
Margaret Hamburg. But, she
said, “Sometimes despite
the hopes of investigators,
patients, industry and even
the FDA itself, the results of
rigorous testing can be disap-
Avastin is the world’s best-
selling cancer drug, and also is
used to treat certain forms of
colon, lung, kidney and brain
cancers. So even though FDA
formally revoked its approval
of the drug to treat breast
cancer, doctors still could
prescribe it — but insurers
may not pay for it. Including
infusion fees, a year’s treat-
ment with Avastin can cost
Some insurers already had
quit covering the drug’s use
in breast cancer after FDA’s
advisers twice — once last
year and once this summer —
urged revoking the approval.
But Medicare said Friday
that it will keep paying for
now. In a statement, the agen-
cy said it “will monitor the
issue and evaluate coverage
options as a result of action by
the FDA but has no immedi-
ate plans to change coverage
Hamburg said any woman
wishing to remain on Avastin
should have an in-depth dis-
cussion with her doctor about
the risks and what the research
into the drug showed.
Avastin manufacturer
Genentech, part of Swiss
drugmaker Roche Group, had
argued that the drug should
remain available while it con-
ducted more research to see
if certain subsets of breast
cancer patients might benefit,
perhaps people whose tumors
contain certain genetic charac-
teristics. After all, some doc-
tors had argued that they do
see a few patients who seem
to do better with Avastin than
without it.
Hamburg said she consid-
ered that argument, but that
scientifically there are no clues
yet to identify such women.
She urged Genentech to do
that research, saying FDA
“absolutely” would reconsider
if the company could find the
right evidence.”

Just five weeks after the
tragedy that had befallen
America at “Ground Zero,”
the Pentagon, and in a remote
field in Pennsylvania, the
US Postal Service unveiled
the first stamp depicting the
Thanksgiving holiday. Of
course, the approval of the
design and production of the
stamp had been accomplished
many months prior to 9/11.
But I believe that the timing
of the issu-
ance of this
stamp could
not have
been more
That year
many of us,
as we gath-
ered with
our family,
friends, and
loved ones
around the holiday table,
expressed an extra helping
of thankfulness for the free-
doms we enjoy. The senti-
ment of our citizens was a
realization of a life we so
often take for granted. We all
mourned the loss, regardless
if we knew any of the victims
or not. This year has marked
the 10th anniversary and with
that has come a resurgence of
those same feelings.
As each of you gather at
the table this Thursday, return
thanks for all that you hold
dear and for the freedoms
guaranteed by those who have
made the supreme sacrifice.
Many of our sons, daughters,
fathers, and mothers are giv-
ing thanks half way around
the world as they put their
lives on the line in order to
keep that guarantee. Having
just celebrated Veteran’s Day
(formerly known as Armistice
Day) we are reminded of the
effects of war and the price
of peace.
The declaration of the
Thanksgiving holiday itself
came at a very tragic time in
our history. In 1863, President
Abraham Lincoln proclaimed
the fourth Thursday of every
November to be designated
as a national day of thanks-
giving. We all think of the
Pilgrims and the Native
Americans as the founders of
this day.
In a sense that is true.
The U.S. Thanksgiving holi-
day stems from a rich his-
tory of celebrations. The best
known of these was the first
harvest festival at Plymouth,
Mass., where in the Fall of
1621 some 50 colonists and
90 Native Americans gath-
ered for a three-day feast to
offer thanks for a bountiful
On Oct. 19, 2001, the fol-
lowing statement was made
at the first day issue cer-
emonies: “The Thanksgiving
stamp provides a meaningful
way for Americans to honor
the tradition
of being
thankful for
the many
b l e s s i n g s
we have as
Ame r i c a n
c i t i z e ns , ”
said Einar
a member
of the presi-
d e n t i a l l y
appointed Postal Service
Board of Governors, who
dedicated the stamp.
In that same spirit, I
am thankful that we as a
Nation have the freedoms
that are embedded in having
the US Postal Service. In
many countries of the world
the information that passes
through the mail does not
enjoy that privacy, is subject
to censorship, and possibly
retaliation by the govern-
ment of the participants. In
America, every single postal
worker is ingrained with the
concept of “sanctity of the
I believe that one of my
colleagues, Mary Jacobini,
postmaster Great Neck, N.Y.,
expressed it best in an article
that was printed in the Great
Neck Record on Oct. 31,
2003. She stated: “Perhaps no
American principle of free-
dom is more zealously safe-
guarded than the privacy of
your mail. Among US Postal
Service employees, the term
“Sanctity of the Seal” has
long stood for mail privacy. It
means that any free citizen of
the United States can mail a
letter with confidence that its
seal will not be broken or its
contents examined by anyone
other than the addressee.”
She goes on to say: “The
Postal Service welcomes the
sacred trust of maintaining
mail privacy and recognizes
that customers must be able
to rely on the Sanctity of the
Seal in order to mail their
letters with complete con-
fidence. Employees of the
Postal Service have earned
this trust for more than 200
years. “
The law professor and
author, Anuj C. Desai, wrote
these protections were first
legislated by the govern-
ment and not originally
thought of as part of your
Fourth Amendment rights/
protections. However,
“these statutory protec-
tions became so ingrained
that, when the federal gov-
ernment finally attempted
in the 1870s to routinely
censor letters (in the guise
of enforcing a prohibi-
tion against lotteries), the
Supreme Court felt that the
importance of protecting
the postal system from gov-
ernment search and seizure
had finally risen to the level
of requiring Constitutional
protections. The Supreme
Court then enshrined what
had been statute and cus-
tom into the firmer bedrock
of the Constitution.”
What does all this mean?
You do not enjoy these
same protections when you
use private delivery com-
panies or private mailbox
firms. There are many who
feel the US Postal Service
has outlived its run. But
we, of the Museum of
Postal History, will con-
tinue to follow our mission
to “educate the public of
the importance of the US
Mail system.” So when you
go to the Post Office to buy
your holiday stamps from
that clerk behind the coun-
ter, or you see your letter
carrier trudging through to
deliver your holiday mail,
say thanks. Because they
are here protecting your
fundamental rights which
includes your privacy.
Happy Thanksgiving

The Elida defensive line of Ian Dukehart, Chance Weitz, Amari Gooding and Trent
Long dig in before the snap versus Columbus Eastmoor Academy Friday night at
Wapak’s Harmon Field. They had a lot to do with shutting out the Warrior offense, regis-
tering nine sacks overall, as the Bulldogs earned their first-ever trip to the state semifinals
with a 37-10 clocking of the Warriors.

Bulldogs’ ‘D’ carries
Elida into state semifinals
The Associated Press
It’s very difficult to win a war
of words with Tony Stewart,
who uses quick wit and a
sharp tongue to defeat anyone
bold enough
to go toe-to-
toe with him.
It’s clear-
ly been his strategy the last
month with Carl Edwards,
the Sprint Cup Series points
leader and lone driver stand-
ing in Stewart’s way of a third
NASCAR championship.
Whether it works or not won’t
be determined until Sunday at
Homestead-Miami Speedway,
where Edwards will take a
3-point lead over Stewart into
the season finale.
Edwards did his best to
hang with Stewart on Thursday
in their final joint news con-
ference before the race. As
the two heaped compliment
after compliment on each
other, they were finally asked
if they’d be so polite on the
last lap with the championship
on the line.
“I’d wreck my mom to win
a championship,” Stewart said.
“I respect him as a driver, but
this isn’t about friendships this
weekend. This is a war. This is
a battle. This is for a national
championship. It’s no holds
barred this weekend. I didn’t
come this far to be one step
away from it and let it slip
away, so we’re going to go
for it.”
Edwards was unfazed
and gamely tried to go after
“Did you say something”
he asked.
“Yeah, you can come visit
my trophy in the room at (Las)
Vegas,” Stewart replied.
“He’s got the talking part
figured out. Problem is, you
haven’t led the points yet this
year, have you?” said Edwards,
who has led the points for 21
weeks this year.
“They say there’s talkers and
doers. I’ve done this twice,”
Stewart replied in reference to
his two championships.
“That’s the funny thing.
I’ve listened to you talk a
lot today. You’ve talked a
lot about your past success-
es. That is very respectable,”
Edwards said.
And with that, he bowed
out of the witty banter and got
Edwards has been the most
consistent driver this season,
and that steadiness is all he
needs to believe he’s the man
to beat in this title race. But
it’s Edwards’ first legitimate
shot at a Sprint Cup title — his
2007 title in the second-tier
Nationwide Series was a run-
away — and he’s bound to get
nervous at some point, right?
Edwards insists he won’t be
rattled and has studied Stewart
the past several weeks to get a
better understanding of what
he’s up against.
“There’s a couple reasons
that I’m not nervous about this,
and they’re personal reasons,
they’re reasons that maybe
someday I’ll talk to you more
about in depth,” he said. “I’m
truly just excited about this.
And it is interesting to me.
I’ve learned a lot about Tony,
the way he competes by what
he’s said. I’ve paid attention to
what he says. I pay attention to
the way he looks when he gets
out of the race car, the body
language he uses, things like
that. I’ve learned a lot.”
But Stewart doesn’t believe
anything Edwards is saying,
and said he’s
made his own
and knows his
rival is feeling the heat.
“I’ve seen what he looks
like, what his guys look like.
I’ve seen how our guys look. I
know how I feel about it. It’s
two totally different demean-
ors in the garage right now,”
Stewart said. “All you have to
do is walk around the garage
and you can make that deci-
sion for yourself.
“I think he’s doing a pretty
good acting job. I think he’s a
lot more nervous than he lets
on. But he’s got a lot of class
and character and is a strong
person. But I don’t think he’s
as strong as he wants to lead
everyone to believe.”
Stewart, seeking to become
the first driver/owner since
Alan Kulwicki in 1992 to win
the championship, came to
Florida after Sunday’s race at
Phoenix for a string of sponsor
appearances. He was unshav-
en and tan at Thursday’s news
conference, where he smiled
and laughed through 20-plus
minutes of questioning.
Edwards, who had a quiet
week at home in Missouri with
his family, wasn’t as loose. He
smiled, he made some jokes,
but he seemed to grow agitated
as Stewart’s verbal jabs con-
tinued. And when Stewart was
asked if he’s talked recently to
good friend A.J. Foyt — he
responded “I’ve not talked to
Foyt. He’ll call me after we
win on Sunday,” — Edwards
seemed to clench his jaw.
NASCAR couldn’t have
asked for anything more from
this championship race, the
closest since the Chase for
the Sprint Cup champion-
ship format was introduced
in 2004. NASCAR chairman
Brian France said he wanted
“Game 7 moments” when he
hinted he’d tweak the Chase,
which this year went to a
43-to-1 points system over its
decades-old convoluted scor-
ing system.
France got what he wanted,
with two heavyweights taking
it down to the wire Sunday.
“I think it’s proven to be
a pretty good system so far,”
Stewart said. “You have two
guys within three points of
each other going into the last
race. I don’t know how you
can say it’s bad.”
France defends secret fines:
NASCAR chairman Brian France
says the organization will reconsider
its policy of not announcing fines
it levies against drivers for critical
comments about the series.
The Associated Press has
reported Brad Keselowski was fined
$25,000 for comments he made last
week about NASCAR’s impending
move to fuel injection.
France says NASCAR will not
allow drivers to denigrate the series or
the quality of racing. He also said he
had not seen any benefit in announc-
ing fines for critical comments.
But pressed Friday at
Homestead-Miami Speedway about
the fines, France relented and indi-
cated NASCAR will consider making
them public in the future.
NASCAR has issued at least four
quiet fines over the last two years.
Ryan Newman was fined twice, and
Denny Hamlin was punished for
posts on Twitter.
Stewart tosses verbal jabs,
bids to rattle Edwards
Elida football team is in unfa-
miliar territory.
They like it just fine.
With its usually-pro-
lific offense limited by the
Columbus Eastmoor Academy
defense (221 yards), the
Bulldogs looked to their under-
rated defense to do the trick
and they got it done: forcing
four turnovers, holding down
the ground-hugging Warriors
offense (147 yards, 40 rush-
ing on 36 tries) and securing
their first-ever state semifinal
berth with a 37-10 clocking
of the Warriors on a cold
Friday night at Wapakoneta’s
Harmon Field.
Elida (10-3) will take on
Springfield Shawnee, a 21-10
victor over Johnathan Alder,
Friday night at a site to be
determined in the Division III
state semifinals.
“State semifinals: sounds
really good. Our philosophy
is that someone has to win
it; why not us?” Elida coach
Jason Carpenter asked. “I’ve
been coach for five years and
even when we went 0-20 a
couple of years ago, they never
gave up. They worked hard in
the weight room and stuck
with it. All the credit goes to
them and their efforts.”
The Bulldogs — with a
stiff wind at their back the
first and third periods — got
the first big break on the sec-
ond possession of the night;
Warrior quarterback David
Valdez fumbled on their 20
and Elida’s Mitch Knotts
recovered right there. Reggie
McAdams (held to a sub-
par 12-of-28 passing for 119
yards) found Austin Etzler
(6 grabs, 79 yards) for 19
yards and then senior scatback
Colin Blymyer (18 rushes, 46
yards) scooted off right guard
for the tally. Nathon Jenkins
made it 7-0 just 1:35 into the
A sack of Valdez (he was
sacked 9 times) forced a
punt and the Bulldogs seized
momentum with a 7-play,
66-yard drive, aided by two
first downs on Eastmoor pen-
alties (9 for 80 yards). At the
Warrior 29, McAdams, as
always in the shotgun, rolled
right and found the senior
Etzler on the right sideline at
the 2; he finished it off in the
end zone. Jenkins made it 14-0
with 5:35 left in the stanza.
“We knew our defensive
line was quicker than their
offensive line. They were big-
ger but we just ran around
them,” senior Ian Dukehart
said. “We just stayed low and
used our speed — they couldn’t
move — to get around them.
We shot the gaps and our
linebackers helped us out a
lot. We knew they had a good
defense and might limit our
offense some, so we knew as a
defense we had to step up. As
a senior, we’ve worked hard
for this. We’ve never done this
before and it’s just an incred-
ible feeling.”
On the very next play from
scrimmage at the Academy
28, Elida’s Chance Weitz
recovered another bobble at
the 37. Elida reached the 7,
where on play nine, the senior
Jenkins booted a 23-yard field
goal for a 17-0 spread with
2:21 showing in the first.
That score stood as nei-
ther team could put a scor-
ing sequence together — with
Elida having the best chance
with a 9-play drive from the 48
to the Academy 16 but three
penalties for 15 yards (6 for
59 for the night) bogged them
down and they turned the ball
over on downs at the 31.
A Jalen Crosby punt pinned
the Orange and Black at their
6. A Blymeyer two-yard run
and a delay on the Bulldog
delay left them at the 4, from
where McAdams was sacked
in the end zone for a safety
by Donzel Watkins for a 17-2
score with 3:00 left in the
Khalil Hairston returned
the kickoff 49 yards to the
Elida 12 but the Warriors
could not take advantage,
turning the ball over on downs
at the 8.
On the next Columbus
possession, starting at the 47,
they gained the Elida 31 in
four plays. However, from
there, Valdez was chased
backwards and Ian Dukehart
forced a fumble, with Knotts
picking the pigskin up at the
Columbus 45 and chugging it
into the end zone with 31 ticks
left in the half. Jenkins made
the halftime score 24-2.
“We had played so well at
the start; the wind was as big
a factor as I’ve ever seen. We
then lost some momentum,
especially after that safety; we
needed a momentum-chang-
er and the sack, scoop and
score was it,” Carpenter noted.
“We have been outweighed
by everybody but our defen-
sive line, especially, showed
all heart tonight. They all
played well; our offense gets
a lot of deserved credit but our
defense is really playing well
right now.”
For Knotts, it was a simple
“I thought Ian (Dukehart,
who had six of the nine Elida
sacks) had a sack and then I
saw the ball on the ground.
All that went through my
mind was go get the ball, scop
it up and then go,” Knotts
Again with the wind at
their backs, Elida recorded
two sacks of Valdez on the
first series of the second half
and a 5-yard punt — with the
wind knocking it backwards
— gave them possession at
the Warriors 20. Right away,
McAdams rolled left and
found Etzler for a leaping TD
toss. The PAT was blocked
but Elida’s lead swelled to
30-2 with 9:42 showing in the
That score remained as the
next seven possessions ended
up on downs at the Academy
12; two picks; two punts; and
again on downs as Eastmoor
marched from its 20 to the
Elida 25 but play 14 ended up
an incomplete pass and Elida
took possession.
However, a play later at
the 28, Blymyer ran for 12
but Crosby simply ball-tack-
led the pigskin away from
the senior and took it down
the right sideline 40 yards to
the house. Crosby ran in the
2-pointer for a 30-10 deficit
with 8:23 remaining.
Columbus tried an onside
kick but it went out of bounds
at their 48. Anthony Sumpter
ran for 4 and then took a
handoff off left guard and
immediately headed up the
gut and outran the defense
to the end zone with 7:28
left. Jenkins accounted for
the final score.
CEA ended up 10-3.

BALTIMORE — The Cincinnati
Bengals have surprised quite a few
people with their impressive start
this season. The Baltimore Ravens
are not among those on the list.
Cincinnati went 4-12 last year
and still beat the Ravens. Baltimore
is 5-4 in its last nine regular-season
games against Pittsburgh and 3-6
against the Bengals.
So don’t go telling the Ravens
(6-3) that Sunday’s showdown for
first place in the AFC North is an
unexpected development.
Baltimore linebacker Terrell
Suggs is the Ravens’ career sacks
leader but didn’t have one last year
against Cincinnati (6-3). On Sunday
he will be chasing QB Andy Dalton,
whose 14 touchdown passes over
the first nine games is the most by
a rookie since the 1970 AFL-NFL
Four different Cincinnati receiv-
ers have at least 26 catches and
two touchdowns, most notably A.J.
Green (41 receptions, six TDs).
Green’s return from a right knee
injury sustained in last week’s
24-17 loss to the Steelers won’t be
determined until game time.
Coming off an uplifting win in
Pittsburgh, the Ravens inexplicably
lost at Seattle to tumble out of first
Sunday’s winner climbs into a
first-place tie with Pittsburgh and
the Ravens own the tie-breaker
with the Steelers. The Bengals can
ill afford to drop into third place with
an 0-1 record against each of the
top two teams.
Cincinnati is 4-1 on the road this
season but this will be its toughest
test to date. The Ravens have won
six in a row at home and 14-of-15.
After facing the mighty defense
of the Steelers, Dalton now must
rebound against a unit similarly
stocked with veteran talent.
CLEVELAND — Always outspo-
ken, often opinionated and some-
times outrageous, Jacksonville
RB Maurice Jones-Drew felt the
NFL should have moved Sunday’s
kickoff between the Jaguars and
An epic matchup deserved a
high-profile TV slot, joked the man
called Mojo, tongue firmly planted
in cheek.
On the surface, the Browns-
Jaguars matchup looks less than
inviting. However, it does appear
the two teams are near mirror imag-
es of each other — young, strug-
gling-if-not-inept offenses, better-
than-average defenses, coaches
feeling the heat and fans eager
for the season to either end or turn
around quickly.
One week after a stunning,
1-point loss at home to St. Louis,
the Browns get a chance to
improve their record against a com-
parable opponent before they get
to December, when they’ll play five
games inside the brutal AFC North.
The Jaguars appear to be the calm
before the storm but to survive the
Browns will have to slow Jones-
Drew, who comes in second in the
conference with 854 yards rushing.
Stopping the run has been a
major issue for the Browns, who
gave up 128 yards to Rams running
back Steven Jackson last week
and are allowing 142.8 yards per
The Browns also spent much
of the week trying to figure out
their red zone and end zone woes.
QB Colt McCoy moved Cleveland
inside St. Louis’ 20-yard line four
times last week but had to settle for
a field goal from Phil Dawson on
each touchdown-less trip.

Here are the games.
College: Nebraska
at Michigan; Oklahoma
at Baylor; Kansas
State at Texas; Iowa at
Purdue; Penn State at
Ohio State; Miami (Fla.)
at South Florida.
Pros: Philadelphia at New York
Giants; San Diego at Chicago;
Cincinnati at Baltimore; Buffalo
at Miami; Tennessee at Atlanta;
Carolina at Detroit.
MICHIGAN: Michigan hasn’t fall-
en flat on its face, even though they
seem to be adjusting their offense
to keep Mr. Robinson in the pocket
more. Cornhuskers simply a differ-
ent team outside of Lincoln. Huskers
struggle in first trip in long time to the
... Big House.
OKLAHOMA: At one time, this
was shaping up to be a dandy but
the Bears have fallen off some. It still
may be a better matchup than I think
but Sooners are getting it going.
KANSAS STATE: One word —
OK, two words: Texas quarterback(s).
K-State will score on this defense and
though the Wildcats’ ‘D’
ain’t great, it will do just
enough, especially with
Longhorn archrival A & M
coming up Thursday.
PURDUE: Iowa had
chance to prove they
were back but flubbed
last week against
Michigan State. Purdue
upset Buckeyes — well,
maybe not in this down
year for OSU. This is
their chance to prove it. I
think they will.
OHIO STATE: Buckeyes gave
away game last week — I should
write, their kicker who gets an extra
point blocked. That is an unpardon-
able sin. If they are not angry, they
should all quit. Nittany Lions might
actually be in better shape on the
road with all the brouhaha going on
in State College but with what the
program could be facing — per-
haps even a self-imposed 1-year
“death penalty — the emotions are
too frazzled. OSU wins — not by
SOUTH FLORIDA: South Florida
has disappeared from national spot-
light ever since they beat Notre
Dame. They’ll be back in it again
after taking advantage of emotional-
ly-drained Hurricanes after tough loss
to archrival FSU.
could be extremely dangerous with
their “Dream” season unraveling like
a pair of old socks. However, G-Men,
who are getting healthier, know that
very well. They will be ready, espe-
cially in the New Meadowlands.
CHICAGO: Chargers are going
in the opposite direction; they usually
start winning when November hits
but this year, not so much. Rivers is
playing — for him — terrible. Don’t
like their chances in Chi-Town.
BALTIMORE: Ravens simply
barfed up a lung against Seahawks.
This will be one angry, mad, some
might say impolite team this week.
Bengals lost their best defensive
player — Leon Hall — and AJ Green
is likely out. Not good.
MIAMI: Dolphins starting to pick it
up, while Bills beginning late-season
swoon. I see no reason to think that
will change this week.
ATLANTA: Falcons have to be
madder than mad — or else ques-
tioning their coach. Tuxedos have
quietly become a SB contender.
That defense and Arian Foster are
why. However, with Matt Schaub out,
Falcon defense will key on Foster and
Atlanta offense will score enough.
DETROIT: Panthers got spanked
by Tuxedos last week, while Lions
got raked by Da Bears. Detroit being
at home is the difference here.
Nebraska: The Cornhuskers and
Wolverines, each 8-2 overall and
4-2 in the conference. Nebraska is
coming off an emotional win over
Penn State, while Michigan had an
easy time with Illinois. It has been a
while since the Huskers have been
to the Big House but I like Nebraska
to come out on top.
Oklahoma: Oklahoma was in
danger of losing a chance at the
national championship following a
stunning 41-38 loss to Texas Tech.
Baylor will try to put an end to
the Sooners’ chances for good but
the Bears “bearly” (Editor’s Note:
Ouch!) got by Kansas last week.
Oklahoma is hungry and will win in
Waco on Saturday.
Texas: K State suffered back
to back losses in the Big 12 and
nearly had a third before a 4-OT win
last week. This week against Texas
they may not be as fortunate. The
Longhorns will look to avenge their
loss to Missouri last week and should
get the win at home this week.
Iowa: It is a battle of the middle
of the pack in the Big 10, Iowa is just
a better team and should get the win
on the road.
Ohio State: It’s the Allegation
Bowl, both teams hit with all sorts
of off-the-field trouble. A year ago
when Penn State and Ohio State
played, the game matched the two
winningest active Division I coaches.
This week it is just embarrassing as
to what has happened to these sto-
ried schools. The Buckeyes looked
terrible last week against Purdue but
should rebound at the Shoe and get
a win this week.
Miami (Fla.): South Florida is
coming off a win over the Orange
after losing four in a row but Miami
is still Miami; although they are hav-
ing a sub-par season, look for the
Hurricane to get the win in Miami.
New York Giants: The Eagles
dream team has turned into a night-
mare. The Giants had a nightmare
of their own last week against the
49ers. Philadelphia doesn’t have
much room for error now and may be
without Michael Vick this weekend.
The Giants have already knocked
Vick out once this season. Now they
can land a knockout blow to their
archrivals’ season. The Giants win
at home.
Chicago: In a matchup of teams
heading in opposite directions, the
Bears look to continue their playoff
push Sunday when they open a
stretch of four straight games against
AFC West opponents, beginning with
the Chargers at Soldier Field. The
Chargers are headed down and will
go further down after a loss to
the Bears on Sunday.
Baltimore: The Bengals
nearly pulled off an upset
against the Steelers last
week but injuries are a big
question for the Bengals this
weekend. I am not so sure
they can pull off another great
game; the Ravens get the ‘W’
in Baltimore.
Buffalo: Buffalo has
stumbled since its 3-0 start
and is tied for second in the
AFC East, one game back of
New England. What were the
Dolphins thinking, winning a game
and losing out on the Andrew Luck
sweepstakes? The Bills are still the
better team and get the win in south
Atlanta: The Falcons try to avoid
losing two straight for the first time
this season; Atlanta played a great
game last week against the Saints
before falling in overtime. Tennessee
pounded the lowly Panthers. The
Falcons are headed in the right
direction and win in the dome on
Detroit: After starting the sea-
son with five consecutive wins, the
Lions have dropped three out of four,
including a pounding against the
Bears last week. The Lions will have
an easier time Sunday and get the
victory against the Panthers.
OH BTW: The Grey Cup is two
weeks away (EN: You going to
Canada to watch it?!!).
Nebraska: Nebraska
last played at Michigan in
1962 when the Cornhuskers
upset the Wolverines 25-13.
Look for history to repeat
itself as Nebraska topples
Michigan in a tight one. The
loss by the Cornhuskers
to Northwestern still has to
be stinging a little, despite
knocking off Penn State last
week, and Nebraska still has
a shot at the Big Ten championship
game to play for.
Oklahoma: The Sooners have
thrown up huge numbers all year
on offense, even in their only loss to
Texas Tech, and Baylor has given
up big numbers so you can do the
math. I’ll take Oklahoma by three
Kansas State: Kansas State and
Texas have one thing in common this
year; both have losses to Oklahoma
and Oklahoma State. The Wildcats
are coming off a wild 53-50 win over
Texas Tech, while Texas heard a
simple message this week from offi-
cials of the Cotton Bowl; beat Kansas
State or forget about playing in their
bowl game, Despite that, it won’t be
enough to push the Longhorns past
the Wildcats. Take Kansas State in a
high-scoring affair.
Iowa: Both teams have strug-
gled this season with some big
highs (Iowa’s win over Michigan,
Purdue’s win over Ohio State) and
some big lows (Iowa’s losses to
Minnesota and Michigan State and
Purdue’s setbacks against Michigan
and Wisconsin); even though the
Hawkeyes will be traveling to Purdue,
I give the edge to Iowa. Why? Who
knows? Sometimes you just go with
your gut feeling.
Penn State: This is a tough pick
for me since I am a big fan of Ohio
State and a financial supporter of the
school through tuition payments for
my daughter but with some time to
get through the shock of what has
occurred at Penn State, the Nittany
Lions will again pick up their pursuit
of a Big Ten championship. It may
take a couple of quarters for the
Lions to get untracked but in the end
they will leave Ohio Stadium unfor-
tunately on a high note. It won’t be
easy, though.
Miami (Fla.): After their win over
Ohio State in the second week of
the season, the Hurricanes’ year
has bounced around a little, but
look for Miami to knock off the Bulls
this week. South Florida started the
year with four straight wins, including
an opening win over Notre Dame,
before dropping four in a row. The
Bulls charged back with a win over
Syracuse last week but that momen-
tum will be short-lived. Miami by two
New York: What was hyped as
the team to beat in the NFL during
the preseason, Philadelphia is now
a team headed in the opposite direc-
tion. New York on the other hand is
looking to rebound from their loss to
San Francisco last week. Look for Eli
Manning to have a solid game.
Chicago: Right now, Chicago is
playing as well as any team in the
NFL. After starting at 2-3, the Bears
have put together a modest 4-game
winning streak, while the Chargers
went from 5-1 to a 4-game losing
fall. It won’t help San Diego that the
game will be played in Chicago. Give
this one to the Bears.
Baltimore: Let’s see. Pittsburgh
beat Cincinnati, Baltimore beat
Pittsburgh (twice), Seattle beat
Baltimore and Cleveland beat
Seattle. Welcome to the AFC North.
For some reason, which I can’t really
explain, I am going with the Ravens
this week even though they have
struggled against defenses similar
to the Bengals. I think they will be
hungry after their loss last week to
the Seahawks.
Buffalo: I know Buffalo is banged
up right now and I know they are
coming off of two losses in a row and
I know Miami has won two in a row,
but I think it will be Buffalo’s week to
right the ship, even if it is just for this
week. I’ll take Buffalo in a close one.
Atlanta: Both teams enter the
game at 5-4 but Tennessee has
struggled on defense and given up big
numbers to Houston and Pittsburgh
before a solid performance against
Carolina last week. Look for Atlanta
to exploit that weakness this week
and rebound from their loss to New
Orleans with a win at home.
Detroit: Tennessee figured out
how to shut down Cam Newton,
sacking the rookie quarterback five
times in a 30-3 win, but Matthew
Stafford is a different story. Stafford
is looking to rebound himself after the
Lions lost to Chicago in a game that
saw the Detroit quarterback throw 63
passes but four interceptions. I’ll take
the Lions by 17.

Dear Annie: I am
very concerned about
the state of education,
specifically as it relates
to the elimination of
I am a high school
counselor who is pas-
sionate about helping
students and their fami-
lies navigate through
some of life’s most diffi-
cult obstacles, including
drug and alcohol abuse,
bullying, teen pregnan-
cy, divorce, peer-pres-
sure, self-esteem issues
and academic struggles,
to name a few.
Just as you
often indicate
in your col-
umn, some-
times school
couns el or s
are the only
safe, reliable,
adult with
whom stu-
dents can
share their
p r o b l e ms .
Ho we v e r ,
in an attempt to save
money, some schools
are eliminating counsel-
ors and the academic
scheduling portion of
our job is being delegat-
ed to clerical staff.
I am not blaming
anyone. I understand
the dilemma, but I am
heartsick at the thought
that students in need
of emotional support
are being abandoned.
I admire our teachers
and believe they make
every effort to play a
supporting role in the
healthy development of
our students, but with
increased class sizes,
that option of interven-
tion and support is unre-
It is my hope that this
letter will help make our
communities aware of
the services available
through their school
counselors, as well as
the need to keep these
services intact. -- J.
Dear J.: Budget
cuts in nearly every
state affect the public
school system in ways
that communities don’t
always grasp until it’s
too late. Kids today are
faced with social and
academic issues that
their parents never con-
templated. Often, school
counselors are the only
thing standing between
our children and utter
collapse. We hope this
letter helps.
Dear Annie: My
son and daughter-in-law
live a few hours away,
and I can’t get them to
come and visit. We get
to see my two grand-
sons only if we drive
to their house, and yet
they have no problem
driving twice that far
to see her parents and
spend the weekend with
them. On the rare occa-
sions when they come
by, my daughter-in-law
barely spends any time
with us.
When they need a
babysitter, I
am expected
to drop every-
thing. Don’t
get me wrong.
I love spending
time with the
grandkids. But
sometimes I get
so frustrated
at being taken
advantage of
that I want to
say no. I have
always been
there for my son, but
now it seems we only
talk when they need
Am I selfish to want
them to visit more, or
should I just be happy
that we get to see them
every few months when
they need a babysit-
ter? -- Frustrated
Dear Grandma:
You aren’t being self-
ish, but sometimes there
isn’t much you can do.
The wives often run the
social life of the family.
Your daughter-in-law
wants to be with her
parents more than her
in-laws, and your son
has given up, doesn’t
care enough to remedy
the situation or agrees
with her. If you want
to see your son more
often, you will need to
make the greater effort,
and it will help if you
can chummy up to his
Dear Annie: I read
the letter from “Strong
but Broken,” who want-
ed to confront the bully
she knew in high school
40 years ago. Her thera-
pist was probably right

I found out at my
20th class reunion that
the bully in my life had
no recollection of mak-
ing one solid year of
high school a living hell
for me. What
a waste of my
energy to hate
her for 20 years.
A friend told
me to write down
everything I’d
ever wanted to
say to her, read
it, tear it up and
bury the pieces
in the backyard.
I did that and
then washed
my hands of the
dirt, as well as
the entire expe-
rience. -- Feel

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Sunday, nov. 20, 2011
Numerous interests may capture
your attention in the year ahead,
which is well and good. However,
take care not to have too many irons
in the fire at once. They could trip
you up on accomplishing anything of
SCoRPIo (oct. 24-nov. 22)
-- You shouldn’t have any problems
dealing with persons who operate on
your same wavelength, but the minute
you run into a little bit of trouble, the
relationship could get garbled.
SaGITTaRIuS (nov. 23-dec.
21) -- When others go out of their
way for you, you’re the type of person
who tries to find a way to reciprocate.
Today, however, you might be more
of a taker than a trader.
CaPRICoRn (dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- When associating with people
who are able to spend money more
freely than most, don’t try to keep up
with them. Abide by your budgetary
standards, not theirs.
aQuaRIuS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Unless you are very careful, there’s
a chance you could unwittingly
interfere with something that is
presently running smoothly. Take
care not to create any unnecessary
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --
Friends are always willing to accept
your shortcomings because they
appreciate that you accept theirs.
Find faults with them, however, and
you can expect the same in return.
aRIES (March 21-april 19)
-- After resolving a touchy issue, let
it go and get on with other things. If
you keep rehashing it, all the good
you did will quickly undo itself,
and you’ll be right back where you
TauRuS (april 20-May 20)
-- Unless you are thorough on every
small detail, what you wrap up could
quickly unravel in front of you once
again. You’re capable of handling
things right; do a complete job.
GEMInI (May 21-June 20) --
It’s OK to make whatever necessary
changes are needed, but make sure
what you do does not cause a whole
new set of problems for you. There’s
a chance it might.
CanCER (June 21-July 22) --
Do not hastily agree to an important
arrangement that should be given
careful consideration. If you jump
the gun, you might have to abide by
some bad arrangements for quite a
LEo (July 23-aug. 22) -- Be
sure you or another member of the
family is there today when some
work or a service is being performed
for you. Unsupervised, the entire job
could be done wrong.
vIRGo (aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- Do not take it upon yourself to
critique another person’s work or
performance today. Although you
might mean well, what you say could
evoke responses you wouldn’t want
to hear.
LIBRa (Sept. 23-oct. 23) -- Be
careful not to push your finances to
the extreme because they do have
their limitations. Be satisfied with
any small gains you make, and do not
overspend on what you purchase.
Monday, novEMBER 21, 2011
During the next year, an
opportunity might develop for you
to take advantage of a little-known
program that could increase your
financial wherewithal. If it checks
out, go for it in a quiet manner.
SCoRPIo (oct. 24-nov. 22)
-- Find yourself an environment that
is free from outside interference,
and you’ll have one of your more
productive days. Shut the door and
check your emails later.
SaGITTaRIuS (nov. 23-
dec. 21) -- Your farsightedness is
remarkable, and it could help you
visualize exactly the right game plan
to follow. Work on some future hopes
that you’d like to bring into being.
CaPRICoRn (dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- It’s not always possible, but your
perspicuity could help you visualize
what’s coming down the line, which
will aid you in marshaling the
appropriate forces.
aQuaRIuS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Have confidence in your own
convictions. If you believe you have
a good idea for something, don’t let
others discourage you from following
through on it.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --
Watch out for someone who tries to
get you to change something that is
of personal benefit in order to make it
into a windfall for them. Of course,
they won’t phrase it that way.
aRIES (March 21-april 19) -- If
you’re reluctant to make a necessary
decision in a timely manner, someone
whom you’d disapprove of is likely
to step up and make that call for you.
Don’t let that happen.
TauRuS (april 20-May 20) --
Dedicate your time and effort to the
tasks that you dislike doing the most.
The relief it would give you will be a
huge weight off your shoulders.
GEMInI (May 21-June 20)
-- Even if you have a full schedule
planned, try to find a bit of time to
enjoy a momentarily pleasurable
pursuit. The relief would give you the
energy to happily continue onward.
CanCER (June 21-July 22) --
Try not to get yourself involved in
a project that once started demands
to be finished. If you do, make sure
your entire day is cleared to do
nothing else.
LEo (July 23-aug. 22) -- If
you learn that some information you
have at your disposal would be of
tremendous help to another, do your
best to get it to that person. Chances
are you’d make a friend for life.
vIRGo (aug. 23-Sept. 22) --
Being prudent is likely to ensure that
you’ll be able to enjoy success and
the finer things down the line. When
that time comes, you’ll be glad of
your sensible behavior.
LIBRa (Sept. 23-oct. 23)
-- Once you make an important,
carefully considered decision, have
the courage of your convictions
to stand by your resolution. Being
wishy-washy won’t help anyone.

Preschoolers enjoy annual Thanksgiving meal
Preschool students at St. John’s Annex celebrated their annual Thanksgiving
lunch Friday with chicken and traditional holiday items.
AP Sports Writer
— Days after losing the job
he held for nearly a half cen-
tury, former Penn State coach
Joe Paterno was diagnosed
with a treatable form of lung
Scott Paterno, the Hall of
Fame coach’s son, said in a
statement provided Friday to
The Associated Press that his
father’s doctors are optimistic
the 84-year-old Paterno will
make a full recovery.
The news came short-
ly after Penn State said the
NCAA would look into the
school’s handling of a child
sex abuse scandal involving
former assistant coach Jerry
Sandusky. Paterno was fired
by the board of trustees Nov.
9 for failing to do more about
an abuse allegation against
Sandusky than report it to his
“Last weekend, my father
was diagnosed with a treatable
form of lung cancer during a
follow-up visit for a bronchial
illness,” Scott Paterno said
in the brief statement. The
doctor’s visit came the same
weekend the school played
its first game since the 1960s
without Paterno leading the
Nittany Lions — Penn State
lost, 17-14 to Nebraska.
“As everyone can appreci-
ate, this is a deeply personal
matter for my parents, and we
simply ask that his privacy
be respected as he proceeds
with treatment,” Scott Paterno
Earlier Friday, The Citizens
Voice of Wilkes-Barre report-
ed that Paterno had been seen
Wednesday visiting the Mount
Nittany Medical Center and
was treated for an undisclosed
ailment and released.
Paterno was fired last week
by school trustees in the after-
math of accusations against
former defensive coordina-
tor Jerry Sandusky, who is
charged with sexually abus-
ing eight boys over 15 years.
Critics said Paterno should
have done more to stop the
abuse that a state grand jury
detailed in a 23-page report
— in particular one assault
in 2002.
Paterno initially announced
his retirement effective at the
end of the season. But univer-
sity trustees fired him about
12 hours later, the evening of
Nov. 9.
Longtime defensive coor-
dinator Tom Bradley replaced
Paterno on an interim basis. He
broke the news to the Nittany
Lions after the team arrived in
Columbus, Ohio, for today’s
game against Ohio State.
Former Penn State quar-
terback Todd Blackledge,
now an ESPN analyst, said
Paterno never mentioned the
illness when he visited his
former coach Thursday in
State College.
“In a week or so of many
surprises this was another
one,” said Blackledge, who
noted that Paterno was in
good spirits when he saw him.
A Penn State spokesman in
Columbus said Friday night
that as far as he knew, Paterno
never smoked.
To say his health problems
added Paterno’s trouble dur-
ing a rough period doesn’t
begin to capture the last two
weeks. The lurid Sandusky
scandal has tarnished the rep-
utation of a coach and a foot-
ball program that once prided
itself on the slogan “Success
with Honor.”
The Hall of Famer’s 409
career victories are a Division
I record. In all, Paterno guid-
ed five teams to unbeaten,
untied seasons, and won two
national championships.
Sandusky was once
expected to succeed Paterno
but retired in 1999 not long
after being told he wouldn’t
get the job.
Two university officials
stepped down after they were
charged with lying to a grand
jury and failing to report the
2002 charge to police, an
assault which allegedly took
place in a shower in the foot-
ball building.
The grand jury report said
the attack was witnessed by
Mike McQueary, a graduate
assistant at the time. Now the
receivers coach but on admin-
istrative leave, McQueary
told the grand jury he went
to his father first and then to
Paterno, who in turn his boss
but didn’t go to the police.
Besides the ongoing crimi-
nal investigation of Sandusky,
the university announced last
week it was conducting its own
probe before the NCAA said
Friday that college sports’ gov-
erning organization would do
its own inquiry.
NCAA president Mark
Emmert said in the letter to Penn
State president Rod Erickson
the probe will look at “Penn
State’s exercise of institutional
control over its intercollegiate
athletics programs.”
That once was never a
question with Paterno, regard-

When a South Carolina man
answered a Craigslist ad
seeking a farmhand in Ohio,
there was no job waiting for
him. There was a freshly dug

two suspects — a man and a
16-year-old boy — are under
Neighbors living near the
property where the graves
were dug were shocked by the
bloodshed. Some figured the
arrests had closed the case,
while others, like Angie Noll,
put credence in rumors of
more bodies to be found.
“We’re a rural community,
maybe there’s 15 houses up
here, and right in our backyard
this stuff is going on,” said
Noll, a 28-year-old mainte-
nance production clerk who
lives just a few houses away
from the neighbor whose
door the South Carolina man
knocked on after escaping.
“I feel kind of dumbfounded
about it.”
The sheriff said it is unclear
how long the ad had been
online or whether there are
other victims.
The wooded piece of land
sits on the former site of a strip
mine and is owned by a coal
company and rented out to
hunters. It is isolated, with no
lights and only one-lane gravel
roads running in and out.
“It’s an ideal place to get rid
of a body,” said Don Warner,
a rancher who lives nearby.
A judge issued a gag order
in the case Friday, and the
names of the two victims and
the adult suspect were not
Before the order was
imposed, Sheriff Stephen
Hannum said that the South
Carolina victim was taken
Nov. 6 to the desolate area,
where he managed to deflect
a gun cocked at the back of
his head and ran. Wounded in
the arm, he hid in the woods
for hours, then showed up
covered in blood at the first
well-lighted place he could
see, a farmhouse outside
Caldwell, about 80 miles east
of Columbus.
This week, cadaver dogs
were brought in, and authori-
ties found one hand-dug grave
they believe was intended for
the South Carolina man and
a second grave that held the
body of a Florida man.
The Akron Beacon Journal
identified the suspects as a
52-year-old man from Akron,
about 90 miles away, and a
high school student from the
Akron area. The teenager was
charged Friday with attempt-
ed murder. While his name
appears in court documents,
The Associated Press general-
ly does not report the names of
minors charged with crimes.

Two arrests made in Ohio
in suspected murder plot
— Just as the U.S. economy
is making progress despite
Europe’s turmoil, here come
two new threats.
A congressional panel
is supposed to agree by
Thanksgiving on a deficit-
reduction package of at least
$1.2 trillion. If it fails, federal
spending would automatically
be cut by that amount starting
in 2013.
Congress may also let
emergency unemployment
aid and a Social Security tax
cut expire at year’s end.
Either outcome could slow
growth and spook markets.
Analysts are concerned,
but most aren’t panicking.
Many say the economy and
markets will likely muddle
through. It’s possible that the
supercommittee will reach a
partial deal that might limit
the impact of the automatic
cuts in 2013. Congress could
also pass legislation next year
to ease the scope or timing of
the spending cuts.
And investors expect so
little from the congressional
panel that they’re unlikely to
overreact whatever it does.
“There’s no doomsday
scenario in reducing govern-
ment spending,” said David
Kelly of JP Morgan Funds.
The 12-member bipartisan
panel, or supercommittee, was
created in August to defuse a
political standoff over rais-
ing the federal borrowing
limit. If it can’t agree on a
deficit-reduction plan, auto-
matic spending cuts would
hit programs prized by both
parties: social services such
as Medicare for Democrats,
defense for Republicans.
The panel appears to be
Many economists hoped
that an extension of the Social
Security tax cuts and unem-
ployment benefits would be
part of a supercommittee
deal. Congress could extend
those benefits separately. But
it would be under pressure to
offset the cost to avoid rais-
ing the deficit.
Deep spending cuts pose a new threat to economy
