At least 24 killed in Cairo clashes
By MAGGIE MICHAEL The Associated Press CAIRO — Security forces fired tear gas and clashed today with several thousand protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square in the third straight day of violence that has killed at least 24 people and has turned into the most sustained challenge yet to the rule of Egypt’s military. Throughout the day, young activists demanding the military hand over power to a civilian government skirmished with black-clad police, hurling stones and firebombs and throwing back the tear gas canisters being fired by police into the square, which was the epicenter of the protest movement that ousted President Hosni Mubarak in February. The night before saw an escalation of the fighting as police launched a heavy assault that tried and failed to clear protesters from the square. In a show of the ferocity of the assault, the death toll leaped from Sunday evening until this morning. A constant stream of injured protesters — bloodied from rubber bullets or overcome by gas — were brought into makeshift clinics set out on sidewalks around the square where volunteer doctors scrambled from patient to patient. The eruption of violence, which began Saturday, reflects the frustration and confusion that has mired Egypt’s revolution since Mubarak fell and the military stepped in to take power. It comes only a week before Egypt is to begin the first post-Mubarak parliamentary elections, which many have hoped would be a significant landmark in a transition to democracy. Instead, the vote has been overshadowed by mounting anger at the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, which will continue to hold power even after the vote. Activists accuse the generals of acting increasingly in the same autocratic way as Mubarak’s regime and fear that they will dominate the coming government, just as they have the current interim one they appointed months ago. The military says it will hand over power only after presidential elections, which it has vaguely said will be held in late 2012 or early 2013. The protesters are demanding an immediate move to civilian rule. “What does it mean, transfer power in 2013? It means simply that he wants to hold on to his seat,” said a young protester, Mohammed Sayyed, referring to the head of the Supreme Council, Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi. Sayyed held two rocks, ready to throw, as he took cover from tear gas in a side street off Tahrir. His head was bandaged from what he said was a rubber bullet that hit him earlier today. “I will keep coming back until they kill me,” he said. “The people are frustrated. Nothing changed for the better.” An Egyptian morgue official said the toll had climbed to 24 dead since the violence began Saturday — a jump from the toll of five dead around nightfall Sunday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the numbers. Hundreds have been injured, according to doctors in the square. At the makeshift field clinics around Tahrir Square, medical volunteers rushed between injured protesters staggering in, or being carried in by comrades. Most of the clinics were simply a partitioned-off sections of sidewalk. Mohammed Mustafa, a doctor at the main clinic set up inside a nearby mosque, said his site alone was treating an average of 80 cases an hour and that many of the wounded did not want to be taken to hospital because they feared arrest.

Natalie Wood detectives face conflicting accounts
BY ANTHONY McCARTNEY The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Natalie Wood’s drowning death nearly 30 years ago came after a night of dinner, drinking and arguments but the question remains — was it anything more than a tragic accident? Conflicting versions of what happened on the yacht shared by Wood, her actorhusband Robert Wagner and their friend, actor Christopher Walken, have contributed to the mystery of how the actress died on Thanksgiving weekend in 1981. Two sheriff’s detectives are now diving into the mysterious events on the yacht Splendour, although whether they reach any different conclusions than their predecessors remains to be seen. They recently received new, seemingly credible information and heard from potential witnesses who weren’t included in the original investigation of Wood’s death, sheriff’s Lt. John Corina said Friday. But he said nothing has happened to change the official view that Wood’s death was originally an accidental drowning. Wagner, the star of “Hart to Hart” is not considered a suspect, he added. Corina released few details about who investigators have contacted or plan to re-interview, but the inquiry will certainly lead them to speak with the three survivors of the trip — Wagner, Walken and skipper Dennis Davern. Wood’s sister, Lana, was not on the boat, but told CNN’s Piers Morgan on Friday that she has spoken with Davern many times and believes her sister did not fall off the boat. “I don’t think she fell, I don’t know if she was pushed, I don’t know whether there was an altercation and it happened accidentally but she shouldn’t have died and that does stay with me and hurt,” Lana Wood said. “I would prefer to always believe that RJ (Wagner) would never do anything to hurt Natalie and that he loved her dearly, which he did, and I don’t believe that whatever went on was deliberate. I’ve always cared about him. I always will care about him,” she said. The captain said on NBC’s “Today” on Friday that Wagner is to blame for the Oscar-nominated actress’ death in the chilly waters of Southern California in November 1981, but didn’t offer many specifics. For years he has maintained that

Homemade Woman faces snow plow domestic violence charge missing
At 3:55 p.m. on Friday, Delphos Police were called to the 600 block of North Main Street in reference Clarkson to a domestic violence complaint. Upon officers’ arrival, the victim stated Lori Clarkson, 44, of Delphos had caused physical harm to the victim who is a family or household member. As a result of the investigation, officers arrested Clarkson on a charge of domestic violence and she was transported to the Allen County Jail. Clarkson will appear in Lima Municipal Court on the charge.

he heard the famous couple arguing on the boat before Wood went missing and Wagner refusing to immediately search the waters nearby for his wife. Davern’s account is dramatically different from what he told investigators after Wood’s body was found in 1981, when no mention of an argument between the couple was made. Wood was wearing a nightgown, wool socks and red down coat when she was found floating off Santa Catalina Island. The renewed investigation comes at a time when plenty of attention was sure to be focused on Wood, whose beauty and acting in films such as “West Side Story” and “Rebel Without a Cause” made her Hollywood royalty. Her death stunned the world and CBS’ “48 Hours Mystery” has been looking into the case for a special airing on Saturday. Sheriff’s officials denied the renewed attention prompted their review, which could take months. “We’re not concerned with the anniversary date,” Corina said. “It may have jarred some other people’s memories.” The Splendour is currently docked in Hawaii, where it’s used for charter cruises. The current owner said Friday said he was contacted by Los Angeles authorities several weeks ago. He did not reveal details of the conversation. “I have known for a few weeks that there was going to be a police investigation,” Ron Nelson, who purchased the boat in 1986, said in an interview with KHON-TV in Honolulu. “But I didn’t know it was going to explode like it did overnight.” LA Sheriff’s Department officials said they will travel to Hawaii to look at the boat as part of their investigation. Davern and Wagner agree on one point about the fateful night — there was a heated argument on the yacht after the group returned from dinner on Catalina. All had been drinking, and here is where the three men’s accounts begin to differ. Davern said he heard Wagner and Wood arguing and its outcome had horrific consequences. Was that fight “what ultimately led to her death?” Davern was asked by “Today” show host David Gregory. “Yes,” Davern replied. “How so?” “Like I said, that’s going to be up to the investigators to decide,” Davern responded after a long pause.
At 3:52 p.m. on Thursday Delphos Police were called to the 300 block of West Sixth Street in reference to a theft complaint. Upon officers’ arrival, the victim stated someone had taken a homemade snow plow from the outside of the residence.
UC Davis The Delphos police chief Herald on leave
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The president of the University of California system said he was “appalled” at images of protesters being doused with pepper spray and plans an assessment of law enforcement procedures on all 10 campuses, as two police officers and the police chief were placed on administrative leave. “Free speech is part of the DNA of this university, and non-violent protest has long been central to our history,” UC President Mark G. Yudof said in a statement Sunday in response to the spraying of students sitting passively at UC Davis. “It is a value we must protect with vigilance.” Yudof said it was not his intention to “micromanage our campus police forces,” but he said all 10 chancellors would convene soon for a discussion “about how to ensure proportional law enforcement response to non-violent protest.” Protesters from Occupy Sacramento planned to travel to nearby Davis today for a noon rally in solidarity with the students, the group said in a statement. UC Davis said early today in a news release that it was necessary to place police Chief Annette Spicuzza on administrative leave to restore trust and calm tensions. The school refused to identify the two officers who were place on administrative leave but one was a veteran of many years on the force and the other “fairly new” to the department, Spicuzza earlier told The Associated Press. She would not elaborate further because of the pending probe. Videos posted online of the incident clearly show one riotgear clad officer dousing the line of protesters with spray as they sit with their arms intertwined. Spicuzza told the AP that the second officer was identified during an intense review of several videos. “We really wanted to be diligent in our research, and during our viewing of multiple videos we discovered the second officer,” Spicuzza said. “This is the right thing to do.” Both officers were trained in the use of pepper spray as department policy dictates, and both had been sprayed with it themselves during training, the chief noted. Meanwhile, UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi said she has been inundated with reaction from alumni, students and faculty and would speed up an investigation that was to have taken three months. “I spoke with students this weekend and I feel their outrage,” Katehi said in a statement Sunday. Katehi also set a 30-day deadline for her school’s task force investigating the incident to issue its report. The task force, comprised of students, staff and faculty, will be chosen this week. She earlier had set a 90-day timetable.

STATE/LOCAL Holiday Mail for Heroes deadline Dec. 9
For a fifth year, the American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes Inc. are teaming up to deliver holiday cheer and greetings to service members, their families and veterans throughout the holiday season. The Holiday Mail for Heroes program provides Americans the opportunity to send holiday greetings to our men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, many of whom will be far from home over the holidays, our nation’s veterans and their families. From now until Dec. 9, the public is invited to send a “touch of home” through holiday cards that contain messages of cheer and appreciation. The Red Cross and Pitney Bowes will then screen cards for hazardous materials, sort and package the cards, and deliver them to military bases and hospitals, veteran’s hospitals and other locations during the holidays. Pitney Bowes is donating all screening, packaging and shipping to the cause. The Red Cross will mobilize hundreds of volunteers to sort and box cards for delivery to service men and women, veterans and family members in November and December. “The American Red Cross serves and supports members of the military, veterans, and their families by providing emergency communications, educational resources, comfort and assistance each day. The Holiday Mail for Heroes program continues in the Red Cross tradition of service to those who serve,” said David Collins, executive director of the Allen County Chapter of the American Red Cross. Locally, the Allen County Chapter is teaming up with The Lima Mall, a Simon Mall property, and ChamberlainHuckeriede Funeral Home, for several card-signing events: — 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday inside The Lima Mall, near where Santa will arrive; and — Noon to 4 p.m. Dec. 3 and 4 at Center Court in the Lima Mall to the right of Guest Services; and The Lima Mall will donate the cards for the card-signing events as well as the space needed. Cards will also be available to be signed at the mall’s Guest Services until Dec. 7. Chamberlain-Huckeriede will pay for local shipping costs to mail the cards signed at the mall to a center to be screened. People also have other options for sending cards. Buy your own card and mail it to: Holiday Mail for Heroes P.O. Box 5456 Capitol Heights, MD 207915456 Cards sent individually must be postmarked no later than Dec. 9; cards received after this date will be returned to senders. For reasons of processing and safety, participants are asked to refrain from sending “care packages,” monetary gifts, using glitter or including any inserts with the cards. Or, bring your cards to the Allen County Chapter, 610 S. Collett St., by Dec. 7. The Chapter will include those cards with the cards collected at The Lima Mall and mail them in bulk to the screening center. Dave Huckeriede, owner of Chamberlain-Huckeriede Funeral Home, knows first-hand the value of Red Cross services to military families. “As the father of two reservists, I know the value and comfort that it means to me to have the Red Cross there for our military family,” Huckeriede said. “We had the need to personally use them for an actual family crisis. I made one phone call to the Red Cross and told them the situation. They called the Army and got hold of his commanding officer who then made the arrangements for his flight home. Without the help of the Red Cross my son may not have gotten the opportunity to return home for a family funeral.” Visit redcross.org/holidaymail for a full list of recommended guidelines and best practices for the Holiday Mail for Heroes program.

WWII veteran’s family fulfills final wish
By JANET ROMAKER The Blade TOLEDO (AP) — Exclamation points punctuated Milan Forkapa’s life. When he died, there was no question mark. He would be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery, a place of honor for the fighter pilot whose aerial achievements were shouted about: Forkapa wins national competitive race! Forkapa brings Toledo its first jet aircraft! “He told us he wanted to be buried there. That was Dad’s final wish,” his son Eric of Maumee said. “That’s all that was needed to be said. We would make sure it happened.” Milan Forkapa, a World War II veteran and former Air National Guard commander who later served (among several jobs) as Lucas County administrator, died of pneumonia at 77 in April, 2001. Memorial services were held in Perrysburg, but family tensions clouded the Arlington burial plans that had been on the horizon. As Eric and his siblings — Rian Forkapa of Perrysburg, Jody Forkapa of Maumee, and Nancy Platzer of Bowling Green — mourned their loss, their stepmother, who was in possession of the urn with Milan Forkapa’s ashes, went off the radar, the sons said. Year after year after year, the final wish remained unfulfilled — and then came a knock at the door. There, on the porch of Eric’s home in Maumee a few months ago stood a stranger, a friend of the stepmother, who died a year ago. The stranger was carrying boxes of Milan Forkapa’s belongings. Personal, one-of-kind, irreplaceable items. Letters written during the war. Detailed flight records. Treasured family keepsakes. And there, in a sterling silver urn engraved with an Air Force emblem, were Forkapa’s ashes. Overwhelmed with relief, and astonished by the kindness, Eric said, “We thanked him a thousand and one times. He didn’t have to do that for us, but he did.” Immediately, the siblings scrambled to fulfill their father’s dying wish. After a slew of phone calls and piles of paperwork, plans were in place. On a recent sunny, 70-degree day in the nation’s capital, Milan Forkapa’s family gathered for a funeral procession. “Arlington is a very big place,” Eric said. “We drove out to the site, and standing there were six horses with a carriage carrying a casket with an American flag. There was a 15 to 20-piece band. There were 15 other soldiers, all done up in Air Force uniforms, looking just like Dad.” Forkapa’s urn was placed in the casket, and then the caisson rolled along the roadway, passing rows of stark white crosses. As the band played “God Bless America,” family and friends followed the carriage to a nearby columbarium where the urn was nestled into a niche after a brief service. The American flag that had draped the casket was folded for presentation to the fam-
Salvation Army kettle stolen at knifepoint
NORTH CANTON (AP) — Police say an Ohio Salvation Army bell ringer outside a Kmart store was robbed of his red kettle by four men with a knife. North Canton police say they don’t know how much donated money was in the kettle when it was taken Saturday evening. Police Sgt. Frank Kemp tells WJW-TV the four men, all wearing dark clothing and hoodies, threatened to use the knife. Kemp says the bell ringer followed the Salvation Army’s standard procedure in such cases and did not put up a struggle. The robbers took off on foot. Police are asking for tips to help find them.
Ohioans more likely than most to smoke
DAYTON (AP) — A new study shows that more than one in four Ohioans smoke cigarettes — one of the highest rates in the nation. The Dayton Daily News reports that about 26 percent of Ohioans smoked cigarettes in 2011, matching the rates of Missouri, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas. Information comes from a study by the Gallup-Healthways WellBeing Index. Kentucky was the only state with a higher smoking rate, with 29 percent of residents lighting up. Ohio is the only state with a comprehensive smoking ban and a rate above 25 percent. Officials with the Ohio Health Department say their own survey found 22.5 percent of Ohioans smoked in 2010.
(Continued from page 1A) tors said most of the injured had breathing and eye problems and wounds to the face from rubber bullets. A number of protesters have lost eyes from rubber bullet hits since Saturday. During the overnight assault, police hit one of the field clinics with heavy barrages of tear gas, forcing the staff to flee, struggling to carry out the wounded. Some were moved to a nearby sidewalk outside a Hardees fast food restaurant. A video posted on social networking sites showed a soldier dragging the motionless body of a protester along the street and leaving him in a garbagestrewn section of Tahrir.
ily. Hand-written letters were presented as well, including one from the secretary of defense, “thanking our father for everything he did for our country,” Eric said. Burial in Arlington honors the decorated World War II fighter pilot, the son said. “He was shot down and taken prisoner of war. He earned that right to be buried in Arlington, and it is truly an amazing place. It is a perfect piece of property. Every stone, every cross is straight up and down.” Arlington holds a special place in America, a place where visitors can see the grave sites of those who sacrificed to make this country as great as it is, Bentley said. Forkapa knew about sacrifices. He completed 24 combat missions as a fighter pilot before he was shot down off the coast of Italy just before D-Day. Italians tried to hide the pilot in the bowels of a boat, “but when they got into port, the Germans went through the whole boat and found him. They darn near beat him to death. They broke his legs,” son Rian said. Forkapa didn’t talk much about war, but he did say he wished that when the Germans found him and they were beating him, they would have finished him off. That would have spared him months of torture. “He was a heck of a guy. He had a heck of a life,” said Rian, who said he was awestruck by the military funeral for his father at Arlington National Cemetery. He didn’t expect such fanfare.

Protesters also marched today other cities, including thousands of students in the coastal city of Alexandria, calling for those responsible for the violence in Cairo to be punished. The protesters’ suspicions about the military were fed by a proposal issued by the military-appointed Cabinet last week that would shield the armed forces from any civilian oversight and give the generals veto power over legislation dealing with military affairs. It would also give them considerable power over the body that is to be created after the election to draft a new constitution. At the same time, there are deep concerns the election will bring little democratic
change. Many worry that stalwarts of Mubarak’s ruling party could win a significant number of seats in the next parliament because the military did not ban them from running for public office as requested by activists. Many also believe that whoever wins the election, the military will continue to wield its domination over the next government. The current civilian government has been little more than a facade for the military, activists say. It has done little to bring about economic and political reform and has stood unable — or unwilling — to act as woes have mounted in Egypt.

Ohio alcohol industry growing
AKRON (AP) — Fueled by the buy local and local food movements, Ohio’s alcohol-producing industry is growing fast as small hobbyists turn their passions into professions. The Akron Beacon Journal reports that the Ohio Department of Liquor Control handed out more alcoholmanufacturing permits in the first six months of 2011 than it did in all of 2010. Distilleries making stronger spirits such as whiskey and gin have jumped from eight to 14, while brewery and winery permits climbed 18 percent and 11 percent respectively. The industry has exploded in the last five years. In 2006 there were 44 licensed beer breweries, compared with 70 today. During the same period, licensed wineries grew from 114 to 164.

More fighting expected in Congress if debt panel fails
ALAN FRAM Associated Press WASHINGTON — Failure by Congress’ debt-cutting supercommittee to recommend $1.2 trillion in savings by Wednesday is supposed to automatically trigger spending cuts in the same amount to accomplish that job. But the same legislators who concocted that budgetary booby trap just four months ago could end up spending the 2012 election year and beyond battling over defusing it. Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., say they are writing legislation to prevent what they say would be devastating cuts to the military. House Republicans are exploring a similar move. Democrats maintain they won’t let domestic programs be the sole source of savings. In the face of those efforts, President Barack Obama has told the debt panel’s co-chairmen that he “will not accept any measure that attempts to turn off the automatic cut trigger,” White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters last week. The leaders of both parties in the House and Senate have expressed similar sentiments — seemingly making any attempt to restore the money futile. But that doesn’t mean By THOMAS BEAUMONT Associated Press rank-and-file lawmakers won’t try to block cuts, or that viewpoints might not change if the right deal is offered — especially in the hothouse atmosphere of next year’s presidential and congressional campaign or its aftermath. With nearly $500 billion in defense spending and an equal amount of domestic dollars at stake, plenty of lawmakers are ready to try blocking all or parts of those automatic cuts, if only to win favor from backers of programs whose funds are on the chopping block. “I have no doubt there will be efforts to turn it off,” said Maya MacGuineas, president of the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. “Never underestimate the willingness of politicians to try to avoid making some of the hard choices.” It’s unclear how successful such an effort would be. Not only would an Obama veto be tough to overcome, but pressure from the financial markets on politicians to rein in the government’s huge budget shortfalls could keep lawmakers from easing the automatic reductions. The automatic cuts, enacted in this summer’s debt-limit deal between Obama and congressional Republicans, were designed to be so distasteful that they would add pressure on the supercommittee to

WASHINGTON (AP) — Police departments around the country are working to shield their radio communications from the public as cheap, userfriendly technology has made it easy for anyone to use handheld devices to keep tabs on officers responding to crimes. The practice of encryption has grown more common from Florida to New York and west to California, with law enforcement officials saying they want to keep criminals from using officers’ internal chatter to evade them. But journalists and neighborhood watchdogs say open communications ensure that the public receives information that can be vital to their safety as quickly as possible. D.C. police moved to join the trend this fall after what Chief Cathy Lanier said were several incidents involving criminals and smartphones. Carjackers operating on Capitol Hill were believed to have been listening to emergency communications because they were only captured once police stopped broadcasting over the radio, she said. And drug dealers at a laundromat fled the building after a sergeant used open airwaves to direct other units there — suggesting, she said, that they too were listening in. “Whereas listeners used to be tied to stationary scanners, new technology has allowed people — and especially criminals — to listen to police communications on a smartphone from anywhere,” Lanier testified at a D.C. Council committee hearing this month. “When a potential criminal can evade capture and learn, ‘There’s an app for that,’ it’s time to change our practices.” The transition has put police departments at odds with the news media, who say their newsgathering is impeded when they can’t use scanners to monitor developing crimes and disasters. Journalists and scanner hobbyists argue that police departments already have the capability to communicate securely and should be able to adjust to the times without reverting to full encryption. And they say alert scanner listeners have even helped police solve crimes.
Iowa Republican Primary up in the air
ANAMOSA, Iowa — The race for the Republican presidential nomination is deeply unsettled with an anythingcan-happen feel six weeks before Iowans start the stateby-state process of choosing a GOP challenger for President Barack Obama. Hoping to sway the many voters who are still undecided, most of the contenders visited the state in the past week and the pace of campaigning is certain to accelerate after Thanksgiving, when the monthlong sprint to the Jan. 3 caucuses begins. A crush of new TV ads is certain. Expect mailboxes filled with brochures and repeated visits by candidates to diners, town squares and other must-stop venues. “People are getting close to decision time,” former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, one of several candidates whose bids depend on a strong Iowa showing, told The Associated Press. “You’re going to see some coalescing in the next couple of weeks.” A recent poll found that 60 percent of Republicans who plan to participate in the caucuses are willing to change their minds and 10 percent are fully undecided. That Bloomberg News survey showed a four-way race: Clustered at the top were Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain and Ron Paul, candidates whose positions, backgrounds and personalities run the gamut. Languishing far behind were Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann, who at one point enjoyed huge bursts of support. Iowa’s outcome matters because it will shape the contest in New Hampshire, which holds its primary Jan. 10, and in states beyond. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, has started stepping up his efforts in Iowa after playing it cautiously all year. He plans to return to the state Wednesday after skipping a multi-candidate forum in Des Moines on Saturday night. Nearly all his rivals, promoting themselves as a viable alternative to Romney, gathered on one stage to discuss how their religious faith influences their public life before a large and influential audience of social conservatives. Considered the one to beat because of his strength on several fronts, Romney spent the weekend in New Hampshire. In Iowa, he’s hoping that social conservatives who make up the GOP’s base will splinter their support among the crowded field of candidates who are considered more conservative than Romney. No one has emerged as the consensus choice of those conservatives, though many are trying. They include Cain, a
craft a compromise. “I would have hoped it would have been a deterrent to those who have taken an oath to Grover Norquist that defense of our country” is less important than tax cuts, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Friday, in a dig at Republicans who signed a pledge from the conservative activist to not raise taxes. But with prospects dimming for a bipartisan accord by the supercommittee on a deficit-reduction package by this week’s deadline, it appears increasingly likely that members of Congress will have to live with the automatic cuts — or “sequestration” — that they built into the law. Little progress was made over the weekend as Democrats and Republicans traded barbs over which party was responsible for gridlock on the 12-member supercommittee. And while lawmakers of all stripes agree that automatic, across-the-board cuts are no way to run the federal government, the threat hasn’t outweighed the differences between the six Democrats and six Republicans on the deficit panel. Democrats are demanding significant tax increases in exchange for savings from expensive benefit programs, while Republicans are refusing to accept such revenue boosts.
Ignorance isn’t bliss
Georgia businessman, and Gingrich, the former U.S. House speaker, who seem just as poised to break out of the pack as they are to fade. Both are seen as attractive for a Republican electorate craving a candidate who will take it to Obama in a no-holds-barred style. But both also are trying hard to weather increased scrutiny. Cain continues to fight decade-old sexual harassment allegations, along with questions about his grasp of an array of policies. Iowans don’t seem to be punishing him for any of it, so far. He cheerfully greeted a crowd of more than 200 at a Dubuque restaurant Tuesday on just his second trip to Iowa in the past three months. “Herman Cain’s support at this point has intensified,” Johnson County GOP Chairman Bob Anderson said. “There’s been no decrease in his level of support based on the controversy that’s erupted.” But Cain has little campaign structure in the state and a tiny staff. Despite the upbeat tone of his visit, he did little outreach to influential Republican activists. He took no audience questions in Dubuque, spent most of his time in Iowa recording a campaign advertisement and headlined a five-minute news conference spent primarily defending an awkward response to an interview question about Libya a day earlier.
egist Paul Begala’s recent Newsweek essay dodged subtlety: “The Stupid Party.” “Republicans used to admire intelligence. But now they’re dumbing themselves down,” was the subhead. Democrats couldn’t agree more. And quietly, many Republicans share the sentiment. They just can’t seem to stop themselves. Republicans aren’t really stupid, of course, and Begala acknowledges this. But, as he also pointed out, the conservative brain trust once led by William F. Buckley has been supplanted by talk radio hosts who love to quote Buckley (and boast of his friendship), but who do not share the man’s pedigree or his nimble mind. Moreover, where Buckley tried to rid the GOP of fringe elements, notably the John Birch Society, today’s conservatives have let them back in. The 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference was co-sponsored by the Birchers. Meanwhile, the big tent fashioned by Ronald Reagan has become bilious with the hot air of religious fervor. No one was more devout than the very-Catholic Buckley, but you didn’t see him convening revivals in the public square. Nor is it likely he
Point of View
would he have embraced fundamentalist views that increasingly have forced the party into a corner where science and religion can’t coexist. Scientific skepticism, the engine that propels intellectual inquiry, has morphed into skepticism of science fueled by religious certitude. In this strange world, it is heresy to express concern about, for example, climate change — or even to suggest that human behavior may be a contributing factor. Jon Huntsman committed blasphemy when he told ABC’s Jake Tapper that he trusts scientists on global warming. What Huntsman next said, though refreshing and true, ensured that his poll numbers would remain in the basement: “When we take a position that isn’t willing to embrace evolution, when we take a position that basically runs counter to what 98 of 100 climate scientists have said, what the National Academy of Sciences has said about what is causing
climate change and man’s contribution to it, I think we find ourselves on the wrong side of science and, therefore, in a losing position.” Of course, plenty of Republicans agree with this appraisal, including other presidential candidates. They understand that the challenge is to figure out to what extent humans contribute and what humans can reasonably do without bankrupting the planet. Nevertheless, the Republican base requires that candidates tack away from science toward the theistic position — only God controls climate. More to the point, Rush Limbaugh says that climate change is a hoax and so it must be. Huntsman may as well be a Democrat. It takes courage to swim against the tide of know-nothingness that has become de rigueur among the anti-elite, anti-intellectual Republican base. Call it the Palinization of the GOP in which the least informed earns the loudest applause. Latest to this spectacle is Herman Cain, who has figured out how to turn his liabilities into assets. After fumbling for an answer to a simple question during an editorial board meeting about his position on Libya, a lead news item since August, Cain blamed — who else? — the media. The problem wasn’t that he
had no idea. The problem, he said, was he likes to think before he speaks. Besides, there are so many countries out there. “Who knows every detail of every country on the planet?” he asked a crowd in Nashua, N.H., a few days later. “The people that get on the Cain train, they don’t get off because of that crap.” It’s safe to say nobody knows every detail of every country, but Libya isn’t just any country and the U.S. did not play a minor role in helping Libyans liberate themselves from the 40-year tyranny of Moammar Gaddafi. But Cain is banking on the hope that GOP contempt for smarty-pants gotcha journalists will outweigh concerns that he may be out of his league. He may be right. Despite his difficulties, Cain is still polling in the top tier, just behind Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. Even so, there are signs that the GOP is recognizing its weaknesses and is ready to play smarter. To wit: The sudden surge of Gingrich, who, whatever his flaws and despite the weight of his considerable baggage, is no intellectual slouch. Whether he can pull off a victory in Iowa remains to be seen, but a populist professor -- a bombastic smarty-pants Republicans can call their own — may be just the ticket.

Beavers knock off Rust 97-94 in triple overtime ST. LOUIS, Mo. - One night after Bluffton took down tournament host Webster in overtime for Coach Neal’s 250th career victory, the Beavers made sure everyone got their money’s worth when they downed Rust College 97-94 in three overtimes. It marked the first time a Bluffton men’s basketball team has played in triple overtime. Bluffton opened the year 2-0 for the second consecutive season as it played an extra half of basketball over the weekend at the Cavallo Classic. Rust dropped to 0-2 after losses to Maryville and Bluffton. After two extra periods that failed to determine a victor, four points from sophomore post Dustin Kinn (Alvada/
New Riegel) put the Beavers up 94-91 with 2:15 on the clock. Senior Nate Heckelman (Norwalk) beat the shot clock, making the score 96-91 before a Shun Thompson hoop and harm pulled Rust within two. Josh Johnson’s (Ottawa-Glandorf) free throw with two seconds left finally ended the marathon weekend for Bluffton. Three-pointers by Nick Lee (Vanlue) and Mychal Hill (London/Jonathan Alder) propelled Bluffton to a 12-3 lead just over three minutes into the game. A Dustin Kinn bucket and Johnson deep ball made the score 17-11 with 14:30 to play in the opening stanza. Tyler Neal (Bluffton) followed with a triple and Will Pope (Camden/ Preble Shawnee) added a pair from the charity stripe as the
Beavers opened a 22-11 margin. An old-fashioned 3-point play from Steve Swick (Elida) followed by hoops from Brent Farley (Lima/Shawnee) and Kinn gave Bluffton a comfortable 29-14 advantage midway through the half. Rust responded with seven straight counters and when Markeith Wilson dialed long distance at the 3:43 mark, Bluffton’s lead was down to three points. Trifectas from Johnson and Lee pushed the Beavers’ lead to seven (43-36) at the break. Rust chipped away at the Bluffton lead until the visitors on the scoreboard took their first lead of the night with 12:50 to play when Wilson again hit from deep. Johnson answered with another triple for a 54-53 lead 25 seconds later. Two more Wilson 3-pointers gave Rust a 1-point advantage with 7:53 on the clock before Farley dropped in a deuce for the Beavers. The lead went back and forth until a Patrick Stokes free throw with 37 seconds left in regulation knotted the game at 73. Bluffton led by three in the first overtime with just 17 seconds left but four Rust free throws sent the game into double overtime. Rust took control in the second extra session, going out to an 88-84 lead at the 2:46 mark, but six straight Kinn points turned the tables. Following a Bluffton foul on a missed shot by the Beavers, Wilson drilled both of his charity tosses to make triple-overtime a necessity. Kinn turned in his second
three Leipsic penalties for 15 yards. From the Leipsic 25, Boggs went up top on play-action and found senior tight end David Lindeman on a route down the left seam for the six. Metzger made it 14-6 with 8:44 showing in the third. “We work on the passing game and the timing all week. It’s always there that we might have to pass to loosen things up,” Boggs said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s me or Alex; coach trusts us to do our jobs.” Leipsic gained the Blue Jay 45 before punting and the Jays needed three plays to go 80 yards. From the 33, Boggs dropped back and lofted the ball down the right sideline. Calvelage, running a corner route, got behind a fallen defender and hauled the pigskin in at the Leipsic 45 and he was off to the races. Metzger made it 21-6 with 2:38 showing in the period. Leipsic then went on another ball-control sequence: 76 yards in 13 plays. Kuhlman Tom Morris photos hit Devin Mangas (5 grabs, Needing to grind down the clock in the fourth, Coach 64 yards) twice for 44 yards Todd Schulte instead went up top.

monster performance in as many days when he went for a career-high 25 points on 8-of14 shooting from the field and 9-of-11 at the line. He scored a then career-best 21 points in Bluffton’s win over Webster on Saturday evening. Farley and Lee both chipped in 15 points, while Johnson and Pope added 10 points apiece as the Beavers put five players in double figures. Farley and Pope just missed out on double-doubles with nine and eight rebounds, respectively. The Beavers struggled from the field, hitting just 26-of-76 attempts (34.2%), but Bluffton drained 36-of-48 (75%) at the foul line to make up for it. Both teams came down with 47 rebounds, while Bluffton turned it over four more times (19-15) than Rust did. Bluffton returns to action when it welcomes Ohio MidWestern to Founders Hall for the home opener on Wednesday. The contest is slated to start at 7 p.m. -----Rochester comes from behind for 66-61 win over Bluffton By Josh Bruner Sports information assistant BLUFFTON — The Rochester College Warriors
battled back from a 19-point first half deficit to upend the Beavers 66-61 in the 2011 Bluffton Women’s Tip-Off Tournament finals on Saturday. Bluffton dropped to 1-1 on the season. Bluffton quickly took control as the first possession for the Beavers resulted in a Brittany Lewis (Springfield/Shawnee) 3-pointer. The Beavers scored the first 14 points of the game before Rochester finally found the bottom of the net at the 15-minute mark when a Sam Tomaschko jumper ended the run. A Brittany Stegmaier (Garfield/Trinity) triple put Bluffton up 25-12 with 8:24 to play in the half. The Warriors responded with a 3-pointer of their own from Abby Schlaegel. The Beavers would not slow down as two Lauren Hutton (New Riegel) free throws followed by two layups and another Stegmaier deep ball gave Bluffton its largest lead of the night, 34-15, with just over four minutes left in the period. The Warriors took one last shot at the lead in the final minutes of the half. A Tomaschko 3 at the buzzer pulled the visitors within 11 (39-28) at the break.

Flacco leads Ravens to 31-24 win over Bengals
The Associated Press BALTIMORE — Ray Lewis watched from the sideline as the Ravens defense gave up big chunks of yards. Joe Flacco and Baltimore’s oft-criticized offense put up the points and Lewis’ teammates came up with big plays when it counted most in a 31-24 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. The Ravens (7-3) moved into first place in the AFC North. Playing without their star middle linebacker for the first time in 58 games, the Ravens nearly blew a 17-point lead in the final 14 minutes, yielded 483 yards and let rookie quarterback Andy Dalton throw for 373. But Flacco threw for 270 yards and two touchdowns, rookie Torrey Smith had six catches for 165 yards and Ray Rice rushed for 104 yards and two scores. Even without Lewis, who was placed on the inactive list with a toe injury. The Ravens’ spiritual leader and leading tackler saw his unit pick off three passes and turn in a game-saving goal-line stand in the final minute. Down 31-24, Cincinnati reached the Baltimore 7 before Terrell Suggs collared Dalton, who was called for intentional grounding. On fourth-andgoal, Dalton was sacked by Pernell McPhee. The Bengals (6-4) needed seven points because on the previous series, an apparent 9-yard touchdown pass from Dalton to Jermaine Gresham was overturned by a replay that determined the receiver didn’t hold onto the ball at the end of a juggling catch. The Bengals settled for a field goal with 5:32 remaining. Baltimore is locked in a first-place tie with Pittsburgh in the AFC North but the Ravens own the tie-breaker with two wins over the Steelers.
49ERS 23, CARDINALS 7 At San Francisco, Alex Smith threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns and San Francisco forced five turnovers on a soggy day at Candlestick Park. Smith tossed scores to Kyle Williams and Vernon Davis on the first two drives of the third quarter to help the 49ers pull away for their eighth straight victory. San Francisco (9-1) can clinch the NFC West with a win at Baltimore on Thursday and a loss by Seattle against Washington next weekend. Patrick Willis, Donte Whitner and Dashon Goldson all intercepted passes by John Skelton. The quarterback for the Cardinals (3-7) lost for the first time in three starts this season in place of the injured Kevin Kolb. BEARS 31, CHARGERS 20 At Chicago, Jay Cutler threw for 286 yards and two touchdowns and Chicago won its fifth straight. Chicago (7-3) continued its remarkable turnaround and handed the Chargers their fifth straight loss, their longest slide since an 0-5 start in 2003. Philip Rivers threw for 280 yards. For most of the game, he looked more like a Pro Bowl quarterback than the guy who had been turning it over at an alarming rate. But two late interceptions helped preserve the win for Chicago. The Bears were leading 31-20 when San Diego’s Antoine Cason returned an interception 64 yards to the Chicago 20. But instead of driving for a touchdown, Rivers sealed it with an INT. FALCONS 23, TITANS 17 At Atlanta, Roddy White had seven receptions for a season-high 147 yards and Jonathan Babineaux led an Atlanta defense that held off Tennessee. The Falcons (6-4) bounced back from an overtime loss to New Orleans but it wasn’t easy. Jake Locker took over for injured Matt Hasselbeck and threw a pair of touchdown passes to Nate Washington to make a game of it for the Titans (5-5). Atlanta jumped ahead on Matt Ryan’s 17-yard TD pass to Tony Gonzalez and was up 20-3 in the third quarter after Michael Turner scored on a 4-yard run. Hasselbeck went out with a sprained elbow and Locker nearly led an improbable comeback. The rookie threw for 140 yards after taking over late in the third quarter. EAGLES 17, GIANTS 10 At East Rutherford, N.J., Vince Young threw a go-ahead 8-yard touchdown pass to Riley Cooper with 2:45 to play and the undermanned Philadelphia Eagles finally got things right in the fourth quarter. In what was a must-win game for Andy Reid’s struggling team, the Eagles, who had lost five games in the fourth quarter earlier this season, marched 80 yards in 18 plays over 8:51. They converted six third-down plays, with DeSean Jackson setting up the first-and-goal with a 10-yard catch to the 10. On third-and-goal, Young found Cooper, who hadn’t caught a pass all season, alone in the end zone for the lead that gave the Eagles (4-6) hope in what has been a dismal season. COWBOYS 27, REDSKINS 24 OT At Landover, Md., Dan Bailey kicked a 39-yard field goal 9:21 into overtime to give Dallas its third straight win. The Cowboys rallied after allowing a late fourth-quarter touchdown and improved to 6-4, keeping the pressure on the first-place New York Giants in the NFC East. The Redskins lost their sixth straight, their longest skid since their 0-7 start in 1998. They sent the game to overtime on Rex Grossman’s 4-yard fade pass to Donte’ Stallworth with 14 seconds remaining in regulation. Washington’s Graham Gano missed a 52-yard field goal in overtime. BROWNS 14, JAGUARS 10 At Cleveland, Jacksonville rookie QB Blaine Gabbert’s pass into the end zone on the game’s final play was incomplete, allowing the Browns to escape. Gabbert rifled a 3-yard pass high over the middle that went off wide receiver Mike Thomas’ outstretched hands and the Browns (4-6) celebrated a win they nearly gave away. Colt McCoy shook off an apparent injury and threw a 3-yard TD pass to Josh Cribbs in the fourth to give Cleveland a 14-10 lead. A missed field goal by Browns kicker Phil Dawson with 2:49 left gave the Jaguars (3-7) a final chance and Gabbert nearly pulled off the comeback. Chris Ogbonnaya rushed for 115 yards and scored on a 1-yard run for Cleveland, ending a TD drought at home that lasted more than 158 minutes. PACKERS 35, BUCCANEERS 26 At Green Bay, Wis., Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes and Green Bay survived a scare to remain unbeaten. With the Packers leading by two points and trying to fend off a rally by Tampa Bay in the fourth quarter, Rodgers found Jordy Nelson for a clinching 40-yard touchdown with 2:55 left in the game — Nelson’s second TD catch of the day. The Packers ran their record to 10-0, leaving them as the NFL’s lone undefeated team going into a Thanksgiving Day matchup at Detroit. Josh Freeman threw for 342 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for the Buccaneers (4-6), who have lost four straight but didn’t back down against one of the NFL’s elite teams. RAIDERS 27, VIKINGS 21 At Minneapolis, Carson Palmer threw for 164 yards and a touchdown and Oakland capitalized on several mistakes by Minnesota. Michael Bush rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown for the Raiders (6-4). Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey was carted off the field with a neck

The Cleveland Browns won the NFL championship in 1950 by defeating the Los Angeles Rams, 30-28,
(Continued from Page 6A) Rochester used an 8-0 run to make the score 44-43 with 13 minutes left to play. The Beavers pushed the lead back to five at the 11:33 mark following a Lewis layup. Neither team seemed to have an advantage over the next three minutes as Bluffton maintained the 5-point lead at the 8-minute mark. The Warriors once again took control, putting together a 14-0 run over the next four minutes to take their first lead of the night. Bluffton quickly responded as a Beth Yoder (Marshallville/Smithville) three trimmed the deficit to 63-59. However, a pair of free throws with two ticks remaining sealed the 66-61 win for Rochester. The Beavers’ offense was led by sophomore Laruen Hutton who had a career-high 24 points, includCalgary 18 8 9 1 17 41 47 ing 18 in the first half.

injury in the fourth quarter. Coach Hue Jackson said Heyward-Bey had total movement in his limbs and hoped the player would join the team on the trip home and undergo further tests in Oakland. Heyward-Bey was injured when linebacker E.J. Henderson’s knee inadvertently hit him in the back of the head while he was being tackled. Adrian Peterson left the game in the second quarter with a sprained left ankle and the Vikings (2-8) weren’t able to complete a fourth-quarter rally. Peterson will have an MRI to make sure there’s no more damage and hoped to play next Sunday at Atlanta. DOLPHINS 35, BILLS 8 At Miami, the Dolphins set up two touchdowns with interceptions, Matt Moore threw for three scores and their improbable midseason surge gained momentum. After losing their first seven games, the Dolphins (3-7) have three consecutive victories for the first time since 2008, winning by a combined score of 86-20. Buffalo (5-5) has been outscored 106-26 while losing three in a row. To make matters worse for the injury-riddled Bills, they lost NFL rushing leader Fred Jackson in the third quarter when he hurt his leg. Receiver Donald Jones (left ankle) and CB Terrence McGee (left leg) were carted off the field in the second period. For the third game in a row, the Dolphins held the opposition without a touchdown. LIONS 49, PANTHERS 35 At Detroit, Matthew Stafford’s fifth touchdown pass of the game, a 7-yarder to Brandon Pettigrew with 2:32 left, completed another big rally. Detroit (7-3) became the first NFL team since at least 1950 to win three games in a season after trailing by at least 17 points, according to STATS, LLC. Carolina (2-8) led 24-7 in the second quarter. The Panthers tied it at 35 with 4:59 left on Cam Newton’s 6-yard run and 2-point conversion pass to Steve Smith. Stafford started the game-winning drive with a 30-yard pass to Calvin Johnson and capped it by converting a third down with his TD pass to Pettigrew in the end zone. SEAHAWKS 24, RAMS 7 At St. Louis, Sidney Rice caught a touchdown pass and drew a pass interference that led to a field goal for Seattle. Chris Clemons had three of Seattle’s five sacks on Sam Bradford and also forced the Rams quarterback to fumble twice, both leading to touchdowns. Marshawn Lynch scored for the fourth straight week, although he missed on a third straight 100-yard game, finishing with 88 yards. The Rams (2-8) totaled 185 yards. The Seahawks (4-6) won on consecutive weeks for the first time, following up on an upset over Baltimore, and have won 12-of-13 in the series. The game featured 19 punts, including a season-high 10 by the Rams’ Donnie Jones.

The Yellow Jackets seized the early momentum with an 8-2 run over the first 4:32 of the game. Harshman had four points in the early run, while junior Kim Comden and senior Brooke Zachrich added the rest of the points. The two teams played evenly for most of the half before the Jackets used an 8-3 surge over the last three minutes of the period to take a 34-25 advantage into the locker rooms. Coming out of the break, the Jackets dominated play, building an 18-point advantage (55-37) with a 10-4 run from 14:46 to the 9:26 mark. The Purple and Gold did not let up and built a 25-point lead (74-49) during the second half. DC outscored Pitt-Greensburg 41-26 in the second frame and shot 12-of26 from the field and 16-of-19 from the charity stripe during the half for the win. Along with Harshman, the Jackets had three other players post double-digit scoring efforts.
Zachrich had 14 points, including 11 in the second half, and five rebounds. Sophomore Erica King added 12 points, while junior Emma Starks had 10 points. Following the game, Harshman was selected to the all-tournament team. Over two days of play, she averaged 15 points and 6.5 rebounds. The Yellow Jackets will return to the court on Tuesday when they travel to Holland, Michigan, to take on Hope College. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. ---Bluffton opens with thrilling 79-76 OT win at Webster ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The Bluffton University men’s basketball team opened its 2011-12 campaign with a thrilling 79-76 OT win over Webster University on Saturday. The Beavers stand 1-0 after knocking off a Webster squad that went 20-7 a season ago. Senior Brent Farley hit three free throws in the first minute of overtime to give Bluffton a 71-68 lead with 4:02 to play. Back-toback Roman Robinson buckets put the home team on top before senior Mychal Hill’s (London/ Jonathan Alder) 3-pointer made the score 76-75 with 39 ticks left. A Webster free throw knotted the score but Hill drilled a triple at the buzzer for a 79-76 OT victory in the season-opener. Sophomore Dustin Kinn (Alvada/New Riegel) snapped a 6-0 Webster run to open the game when he scored at the 18:37 mark. Kinn continued to chip away at the lead and when he dropped in his fourth straight hoop, Bluffton tied it up at eight. Dillon Long (Rockford/ Parkway) and Steve Swick (Elida) added baskets as the Beavers trailed by one at the 11:22 mark.
A 10-2 Bluffton run pushed the visitors to a 28-23 lead when Dillon Long followed a Josh Johnson (Ottawa-Glandorf) triple with a free throw and duece. Johnson knocked down a pair of charity tosses and Webster missed three putbacks and two free throws in the final 10 seconds of the half as Bluffton took a 30-28 lead. Kinn opened period two like he started the game, hitting three shots in the first three minutes for a 38-34 lead over the tournament hosts. Hill and Johnson deep balls gave Bluffton a 46-40 advantage just two minutes later. With the game knotted at 51, Kinn went back to work and he hit twice from in close for a 55-51 edge. The Beavers felt good when Johnson’s fourth trifecta of the night made the score 68-65 with 23 seconds on the clock but Dietrick Scooter answered with a three of his own at the end of regulation, setting the stage for Hill’s buzzerbeater in overtime. Dropping in a career-high 21 points on 10-of-16 shooting from the field was sophomore post Kinn. He also collected seven rebounds. Johnson equaled his career best with 14 points on 4-of-9 shooting from distance. Seniors Hill and Farley checked in with 12 points apiece. Farley ripped down a game-high 12 boards in the victory. Bluffton struggled from behind the arc in the first half (1-of-9) but the Beavers drained 8-of-14 from deep in the final 25 minutes on Saturday night. The Beavers turned it over three more times (18-15), while Webster pulled down three more rebounds (42-39). The Gorlocks hit just 39.7 percent (27-of-68) from the field, compared to 45.9 percent (28-of-61) for Bluffton.

‘Breaking Dawn’ rises to $283.5M worldwide debut
By DAVID GERMAIN The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — “The Twilight Saga” has staked out another huge opening with a $139.5 million first weekend domestically and a worldwide launch of $283.5 million. The domestic total gives “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” the second-best debut weekend for the franchise, after the $142.8 million launch for 2009’s “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.” “Breaking Dawn” did more than half of its business, $72 million, on opening day Friday, while the movie’s debut weekend was the fifthbest on record. Opening in 54 overseas markets, “Breaking Dawn” pulled in $144 million internationally, according to studio estimates Sunday. But the Warner Bros. dancing penguin sequel “Happy Feet 2” stumbled in its debut, pulling in just $22 million over opening weekend. That’s barely half what the first film in the animated franchise earned in its 2006 opening. The comparison is even worse considering the original did not have the sequel’s price advantage for 3-D screenings, which cost a few dollars more than
2-D shows. The previous weekend’s No. 1 movie, Relativity Media’s action tale “Immortals,” fell to third-place with $12.3 million, raising its domestic haul to $53 million. George Clooney had a great start with Fox Searchlight’s comic drama “The Descendants,” which broke into the top-10 despite playing in just a handful of theaters. “The Descendants” finished at No. 10 with $1.2 million in 29 theaters, averaging a whopping $42,150 a cinema. That compares to an average of $34,351 in 4,061 theaters for “Breaking Dawn.”

Penn State case rivets public, fuels reforms
MARYCLAIRE DALE Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Jerry Sandusky’s brief call to a TV sportscaster may have done more to raise concern over child-sex crimes than three decades of church-abuse cases. Sandusky, 67, quickly denied being a pedophile when Bob Costas asked him. But Penn State’s retired defensive coordinator paused, and rambled, when asked whether he’s sexually attracted to children. “He doesn’t want to label himself what he is,” said former Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham, who once led a grand jury investigation into the Philadelphia archdiocese and is working with the charity Sandusky founded to conduct an internal investigation. “This is a pattern of conduct that is so classic in its context: the grooming, the young boys, the gifts, the flattery, the meals, the trips, the jock thing, the touching.” The allegations against Sandusky have toppled iconic coach Joe Paterno and the university’s president and riveted the public in the two weeks since his arrest. People are poring over the grand jury report and asking why it took years for witness accounts and police investigations to surface. Sandusky was charged with abusing eight boys over 15 years, sometimes on campus. He vows to fight the 40-count indictment. “There are far more numbers (of victims and abusers) in the priest-abuse scandal, and one might even think larger violations of trust,” said Frank Cervone, executive director of the Support Center for Child Advocates in Philadelphia. “Ironically, more people are upset (now).” The 2002 case of one abusive priest in the Archdiocese of Boston led to years of revelations that bishops across the U.S. had for decades moved accused priests among churches without alerting parents or police. The Penn State case may give more political muscle to those trying to get victims more time to file criminal complaints or lawsuits against the church. Sandusky assaulted some of his boys more than a decade ago, the grand jury said. More accusers have contacted police or lawyers this month, after learning about the report or Sandusky’s denials. “This drives home the point; this is not a Catholic issue. It never has been. It’s a kids’ issue,” said John Salveson, president of the Pennsylvania-based Foundation to Abolish Child Sex Abuse, which supports laws to extend legal time limits. “Whether Penn State, whether the Boy Scouts, whether it’s the Catholic church, it’s not about those institutions. I think people are starting to see the difference.” Historically, the Catholic church has fought such legislation in Pennsylvania, Colorado and other states, as the hierarchy struggled with abuse claims that have bankrupt some dioceses. Philadelphia’s new archbishop, Charles Chaput, arrived this fall from Denver, where he had publicly apologized to victims and tried to quickly settle litigation. The Denver archdiocese settled 43 claims for a total of $8.3 million from 2005 to 2008 under his watch. Chaput arrived in Philadelphia in the midst of an unprecedented criminal priest--abuse case. Three priests are charged with raping boys while a former high-ranking diocesan official faces child endangerment charges stemming from accusations that he transferred predators to new parishes. But because of the statute of limitations in Pennsylvania, the archdiocese has not spent millions of dollars on civil suits. Abraham’s grand jury concluded in 2005 that 63 priests had been credibly accused, but the cases were all too old to prosecute or pursue through lawsuits. Lawmakers that year extended the age limit to file civil suits to age 30, from age 20, but the change was not retroactive. Advocates now want to extend the limit to age 50, and give victims a two-year window to file civil suits after reporting abuse. The archdiocese said Friday it would need to carefully review such legislation. “Any legislation needs to be carefully considered, and we believe immediate reporting of alleged child abuse, and clarity on how a report is to be made and by whom, is critical,” it said in a statement. The church vowed to support “legislation that is fair and just for all involved ... as private and public institutions in this state work together to protect children.” The Pennsylvania Catholic Conference, along with Chaput’s predecessors in Philadelphia, vigorously fought time extensions in the past. “The worst thing he can do is continue the policies of the previous administration,” Abraham said. Now in private practice, she has been retained by The Second Mile, the charity Sandusky founded for disadvantaged youth, to conduct an internal investigation of who knew what. Sandusky met the boys he’s accused of molesting through the group, which runs camps, trips and other activities for children in several counties. Even in her new role, she continues to support the time extensions for filing civil suits. “To convince witnesses to come forward, and tell these horrible secrets, it’s very difficult,” Abraham said.

It has become curved like a banana and can never be truly upright and perpendicular. Sweet potatoes and yams are not the same thing. Sweet potatoes are native to the Americas, first cultivated by the Aztecs, then picked up by the Spanish conquistadors.

The Herald –3B
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2011 Many things in your chart say that you will have numerous powerful interests that you’ll want to develop in the year ahead. As you figure out how to progress, you’ll carry others along with you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Being clever enough to take the frail ideas of others and ingeniously remold them into hardy producers is one of your best talents, which you’ll use quite well today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Candor is essential in all your one-on-one relationships, so don’t try to blow things out of proportion just to make them more colorful. Your rhetoric could get taken seriously. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Put your organizational abilities to constructive use by systemizing situations that are somewhat confusing. No one can present a more sensible plan than you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -If you can, you should allocate some time to doing fun things with some choice chums. You can take what would otherwise be an ordinary day and turn it into something special. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Your aims and wishes would be more readily received if you first set the example you wish others to follow. Don’t ask of them what you’re not willing to do yourself. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You should be able to excel in activities that require partners. You’re willing to accept in others that which is lacking in yourself, and as such work quite well with most anyone. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Focusing on work-related activities makes you a very productive person. Opportunities to accomplish things that you were unable to do previously will present themselves. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Positive thinking will provide ample opportunities to advance in your favorite field of endeavor. The word “can’t” won’t be found in your vocabulary. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Open your heart and share your know-how when working with the less fortunate. Your generosity will bring you more delight than it may the recipients. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Conceptual changes you make regarding your plans for the day should easily work out to your satisfaction. More importantly, however, you should try to advance your dreams. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You’re capable of doing most anything you want, but what would make you the happiest would be applying your effort toward doing something you consider to be truly worthwhile. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You possess an ability to make the most out of whatever is given to you in life, and are happy doing just that. No matter where you are or whom you’re with, you’ll use this asset well. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2011 Circumstances could put you in a fortuitous position in the year ahead, when something others do will provide you with an opportunity to achieve what you’d like to accomplish. Your best efforts are likely to be required, but it’ll be worth it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -This can be a good day when it comes to some kind of personal achievement for which you’re striving. You’re likely to get the break you’ve been looking for. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Even if certain prospects appear fuzzy, continue to be hopeful. Positive aspects are working behind the scenes, helping you achieve your aims. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Lucky you, because a friend is in a position to help you pull off something that you’ve long been working for. If you keep the required secrecy, you’ll be able to profit handsomely. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- The present aspects under which you’re working will produce exactly what you’re hoping to accomplish. Thus, any commitment you make will benefit everybody involved. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Watch for an unusual opportunity that could enable you to strengthen your position in a joint endeavor. The other parties could profit as well, but chances are you’ll do better. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Check with friends to see if anybody has some good ideas for fun activities. An excellent suggestion might come from the quiet one in the group. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Favorable conditions are moving in your direction, which could have an effect upon your work, finances or even your leisure hours. It seems that when one thing goes right, everything else does as well. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Concentrate on matters that require either a verbal or written commitment. If you’ve made a promise of some kind, be sure to follow through on what you pledged to do. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Keep all your avenues for gain open, so that you’ll be able to act immediately when they give off positive signals. You could profit from more than one source. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Something constructive can be done to uplift your financial position, so take advantage of any chance you get for gain, no matter how small it is. Lady Luck is in your corner right now. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -You’ll be at your best when it comes to anything that has to do with profit. Something financially constructive can be advanced. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -News is coming your way that will encourage you to revive a social endeavor on which you worked hard and long, but gave up on. It can be successful if you do now as you first planned.

Swift unstoppable at American Music Awards
BY DERRIK J. LANG The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Taylor Swift and Adele tied with three wins at the American Music Awards, but the event belonged to the country superstar after she beat the soulful crooner, as well as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Lil Wayne, to win artist of the year, the ceremony’s highest accolade, which the 21-yearold singer-songwriter previously claimed in 2009. “This is so crazy,” beamed Swift, who also picked up the trophies for favorite country female artist and favorite country album for “Speak Now.” Adele had been the night’s leading nominee with four bids, but the soulful singer didn’t have much of a presence during the show: She was absent from the ceremony because she is recovering from recent throat surgery. Adele tied Swift with three awards, nabbing favorite pop/ rock female artist, adult contemporary artist and pop/rock album for “21.” Other winners included Maroon 5 as favorite pop-rock band/duo/group, Beyonce as favorite soul/R&B female artist, Bruno Mars as pop/ rock male artist, Foo Fighters as favorite alternative rock artist, Rihanna for favorite soul/R&B album for “Loud,” Hot Chelle Rae as new artist of the year and Lady Antebellum as favorite country band/duo/group. “We thank you very much for an incredible year,” Lady A singer Charles Kelley told fans. Nicki Minaj kicked off the 39th annual fan-favorite ceremony with an over-the-top performance that featured the pink-loving singer sporting a pair of speakers on her much-talked about derriere. She later earned two trophies: favorite rap/hip-hop artist, besting a group that included mentor Lil Wayne, and favorite rap/hip-hop album for “Pink Friday.” “Chase your dreams,” the pink-haired Minaj encouraged the audience. “I never thought this could be possible.” The sprawling three-hour ceremony inside the Nokia Theatre in an unusually rainy Los Angeles was drenched with musical performances, including Justin Bieber getting into the holiday spirit amid a forest of neon lights with “Under the Mistletoe,” and Kelly Clarkson channeling the big-band era with a swinging rendition of “Mr. Know It All.” Several artists delivered stripped-down performances: The Band Perry crooned an emotional “If I Die Young,” a subdued Katy Perry accompanied herself on guitar for “The One That Got Away” and a platinum-blonde Chris Brown simply sang “All
Back” before being joined by a troop of helmet-clad back-up dancers for a flashy interpretation of “Say It With Me.” Jennifer Lopez performed essentially a live version of the car commercial starring the “American Idol” judge set to her groove “Papi” — complete with a revolving car onstage — before launching into her dance hit “On the Floor.” She was joined by rapper Pitbull, who later returned to the stage for the sexually charged “Rain Over Me” with Marc Anthony. “I want to thank God because it’s been a really amazing year in so many ways,” said Lopez, who announced earlier this year with Anthony that they were ending their seven-year marriage, after winning the favorite Latin music artist award. “It’s been up and down and just exciting and overwhelming and so many things. I’m just grateful for all my blessings.” Lopez later appeared with a glowing-in-the-dark will.i.am for his new single “Hard.” Other collaborations included Christina Aguilera dueting with Maroon 5 on “Moves Like Jagger” and Bieber dancing with LMFAO in animal-print pants for a finale that ended with everyone on stage — including David Hasselhoff but not Bieber — stripping down to smiley-face underwear.
