Brake early, slowly and never slam on the brakes. Bridges and highway ramps are often home to black ice. Caution is advised when approaching these areas, as well as intersections, and avoid abrupt steering maneuvers. Keep all lights and windows clear of snow and ice. Especially because visibility can be limited, allow extra time to reach destinations. Residents may also need to allow extra time in the mornings to fight the battle getting out of the driveway. Most people don’t like waking up to a plowed-in driveway or car parked along the street that’s snowed in. Unfortunately, there aren’t many options for owners or the city. However, residents are encouraged to get vehicles off the street so all snow can be removed. “When snow rolls off the blade, it has to go somewhere. We could plow to the middle but it’s a hazard and a huge cost expense because we’re touching the snow twice.

City Maintenance Department employee Mike Stemen performs regular maintenance on one of the city’s trucks. Snow plows will be out in full force as needed to keep roadways in safe-driving condition this winter. because the sidewalks are located directly against the roadway but plowing to the middle creates a traffic hazard. Plowing to the middle is something we do because we don’t have anywhere else to put it,” Berquist said. The city has nearly a dozen people to call upon in the case of a serious snow emergency. Berquist has nothing but praise for his maintenance staff. “I credit my guys — they do a great job in the middle of the night and first thing in the morning. We have so many cross-trained employees that if I need an extra plow driver, I can pull someone out of the wastewater treatment plant. We have 11 people trained on one piece of equipment or another; we have four big plows, two smaller ones that are 1 1/2 tons, three 3/4 ton plows, front-loaders and backhoes that are also used for snow removal. So, if we have a big snowstorm, everything will be out,” he concluded.

New bodies could bring Ohio Craigslist death toll to three
a sheriff in a rural county said later in the day that the body of a white male without identification was found in a shallow grave about 90 miles away. The FBI is working on the supposition that the body found near the Rolling Acres shopping mall in Akron may be that of 47-year-old Timothy Kern, who hasn’t been seen in more than a week, agency spokeswoman Vicki Anderson said. “Do we think it might be? Maybe,” Anderson said. “He’s missing. We haven’t been able to find him. It could possibly be, but we just don’t know that yet.” Anderson declined to specify how authorities discovered the body. Kern, of Massillon, answered the same ad for a farm hand that authorities say led to the shooting death of Norfolk, Va., resident David Pauley, 51, in a rural area of Nobel County 90 miles south of Akron. A South Carolina man reported answering the ad and being shot Nov. 6 but escaping. Noble County Sheriff Steve Hannum is under a judge’s gag order and can’t comment on the case, but the title of his emailed announcement late Friday — “second body” — implied the discovery was connected with Pauley’s death. Neighbors where Pauley’s body was found last week and the second body was found Friday said police had been in the area and a helicopter had been overhead most of the day but the scene was
quiet late in the day. Two people from the Akron area are in custody: a high school student who has been charged with attempted murder and 52-year-old Richard Beasley, who is in jail on unrelated charges. Beasley’s mother has said he has “a very caring heart” and she prays that newspaper reports he is a suspect are wrong. FBI agents have contacted people to check on their well-

Egypt’s military under pressure from protests, US
By HAMZA HENDAWI and SARAH EL DEEB The Associated Press CAIRO — The U.S. increased pressure Friday on Egypt’s military rulers to hand over power to civilian leaders, and the generals turned to a Mubarak-era politician to head a new government in a move that failed to satisfy the more than 100,000 protesters who jammed Tahrir Square in the biggest rally yet this week. The demonstrators rejected the appointment of Kamal el-Ganzouri as prime minister, breaking into chants of “Illegitimate! Illegitimate!” and setting up a showdown between the two sides only three days before key parliamentary elections. The size of the rally and the resilience of protesters in the face of the violence used by security forces in this week’s deadly street battles have won back for the movement much of the strength it projected during the 18-day uprising that ousted President Hosni Mubarak in February. Showing the sort of resolve from the earliest days of the Arab Spring, the protesters say they will not leave the iconic square until the military rulers led by Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi step down and a civilian presidential council is formed to run the country until a new leader is elected. “They stole our January revolution because we did not agree on who should represent us,” said activist Sedeeqah Abu Seadah. “We shouted ’erhal’ (leave) but did not shout the name of the person we want.” The military’s appointment of el-Ganzouri, its apology for the death of protesters and a series of partial concessions in the past two days suggest that the generals are struggling to overcome the most serious challenge to their nine-month rule, with fewer options now available to them. Significantly adding to their predicament, the Obama administration brought its position on the crisis in Egypt closer to the protesters’ demands, urging the military to fully empower the next interim civilian government. “We believe that Egypt’s transition to democracy must continue, with elections proceeding expeditiously, and all necessary measures taken to ensure security and prevent intimidation,” the White House said in a statement. “Most importantly, we believe that the full transfer of power to a civilian government must take place in a just and inclusive manner that responds to the legitimate aspirations of the Egyptian people, as soon as possible,” it said.

the Lotus experiment
The turkey is hanging out in a ziplock in the fridge with containers of sides surrounding it. Slivers of pie in tins clutter the counter and the crockpot is still in the sink soaking. Ah, it must be the day after Thanksgiving. I only wish. It’s Saturday already and when I stumble into the kitchen in search of chocolate milk, that is what will greet me. What happened to Friday? Let me preface this by saying I am perhaps the worst shopper in the world. I don’t like crowds, I don’t like people being rude and I don’t like standing in line. With these things said, one might wonder what the heck I was doing heading out to shop on Black Friday. The name itself has a dark connotation if you don’t know how it got its name. The answer is simple. She’s about 5 foot, has long blonde hair and thinks the sun rises and sets on my husband’s command — Lotus, our adorable niece. She celebrated a birthday recently and Christmas is right around the corner so the goal of the day was to find her birthday and Christmas presents. A few others were lucky as well and their names were crossed off the list — the nice list, of course. So off we went in the morning to the inlaws and then headed to the mall. Yes, the mall on Black Friday. Doorbuster sales. Onehour sales. This sale. That sale. We hit a particular store first because saw a coat she liked in a flier. Well, the coupon we had didn’t take affect until 2 p.m. It was 11 a.m. Really? You can’t take my coupon now? I have the money right here in my hand and you don’t want it until 2 o’clock? Whatever. So we put our items on hold and moved on. The most enjoyable part of the day was just

Several of her habits and mannerisms made me raise an eyebrow. Apparently, Lotus and my husband are a lot more alike than any of us first thought. Several things came up on Friday that made me turn my head to said hubby and smile. All he said was, “What? See, it’s not just me.” I’m not sure that applies here. They’re practically the same person on some things so I’m gonna say, “Yes. It kind of is just you.” At some point we got to talking about farms. Lotus is a city girl and hasn’t much exposure to the rural life we enjoy here. She and her parents passed a horse farm or two on the way here but that was about it. So I explained that we have all kinds of farms — horse farms, pig farms, dairy farms, steer farms, combined farms, farms with alpacas and llamas and goats and chickens and well, a lot of things. Today, we might put up grandma and grandpa’s Christmas tree. This evening we have another outing planned. I can’t wait. I haven’t completed disassembled Lotus and put her back together yet. I have a lot of work to do.

Mom holds out hope missing boys are alive
TOLEDO (AP) — The mother of three missing Michigan boys believes they will come home alive even though it has been a year since they were last seen with their now-jailed father at his home near the Ohio state line. Tanya Zuvers always keeps her cellphone within reach, waiting for a call that the boys have been found, and she has birthday cards and Christmas presents ready. “As their mom I have always felt they’re alive, and that gets stronger,” Zuvers told The Blade newspaper. Her sons, Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton, have not been seen since they went to spend last Thanksgiving at their father’s home in Morenci, a small town in Michigan that straddles the Ohio state line. They were 9, 7, and 5 years old. Their father, John Skelton, didn’t return them, setting off a search that involved hundreds of volunteers in northwest Ohio and southern Michigan. Police have said they don’t believe his story that he handed the boys over to a group he hasn’t identified to protect them from their mother. Skelton pleaded no contest to unlawful imprisonment in July as part of a plea bargain and was sentenced to 10 to 15 years in prison. Zuvers said she hasn’t talked with her ex-husband since he said he attempted suicide a year ago. “There are things I wish I could say to him, but it wouldn’t accomplish anything,” she said. “I never thought it would be one year later and they still wouldn’t be home,” she said. “In the beginning I really thought this would be over and done with.” Zuvers in the spring tried to move back into the home
where she lived with the boys. “I got to the point where I couldn’t stop crying, couldn’t get out of bed,” she said. She moved out in August and is looking for a job and takes care of her new granddaughter. She told The Daily Telegram of Adrian that she relies on her faith and support from the community. She continues to wait for the boys. There are unwrapped Christmas gifts in the basement, and she wrote each of the boys a letter for their birthdays and put them in cards. “I know there’s a good possibility of that,” Zuvers said. “It’s hard to think they’ll never be the same happy-golucky guys they were before this. It makes my blood boil, but we’ll get through this. When they come home, we’ve already conquered the hardest part.”

Ohio’s Deer-Gun Season opens Monday
COLUMBUS — Ohio’s popular deergun season opens statewide on Monday, offering hunters a full week to harvest a whitetail. The upcoming season will again include an extra weekend of gun hunting on Dec. 17-18, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife. Deer can be hunted with a legal muzzleloader, handgun or shotgun from one half-hour before sunrise to sunset through Dec. 4 and Dec. 17-18. With a pre-hunting season population estimate of 750,000 white-tailed deer, the ODNR Division of Wildlife anticipates 115,000 to 125,000 deer will be killed during the nine-day season. Approximately 420,000 hunters are expected to participate in this year’s season, including many out-of-state hunters. The white-tailed deer is the most popular game animal in Ohio, frequently pursued by generations of hunters. Ohio ranks 8th nationally in annual huntingrelated sales and 10th in the number of jobs associated with the huntingrelated industry. Each year, hunting has a $859 million economic impact in Ohio through the sale of equipment, fuel, food, lodging and more. Hunters may take only one antlered deer, regardless of zone, hunting method or season. A deer permit is required in addition to a valid Ohio hunting license. Any time a hunter is allowed to take more than one deer, they must purchase an additional permit. Ohio is divided into three deer hunting zones. Beginning on the opening day of gun season and continuing through Dec. 4, a limit of one deer may be taken in Zone A (12 counties) and two deer in Zone B (38 counties). A total of six deer may be harvested in eastern and southeastern Ohio’s Zone C (38 counties) through the week long gun season. Antlerless deer permits are not valid in Deer Zones A and B after Sunday. The antlerless deer permit will be valid until Dec. 4 only in Zone C. Beginning on Dec. 5, the bag limit is three deer in Zone C and antlerless deer permits are no longer valid. Those hunting in urban units and at Division of Wildlife-authorized controlled hunts will have a six-deer bag limit, and those deer will not count against the hunter’s zone bag limit. Antlerless deer permits can be used for the entire season in urban deer units or Division of Wildlife-authorized controlled hunts. Antlerless deer permits must be purchased by Nov. 27. Hunters may take only one antlered

It’s thanksgiving morning and as I write this my mind is going back through the files of so many thanksgiving memories. For the past 35 years or so my wife and I have hosted family members for thanksgiving dinner. While we wish that all of our family could be with us today, we’re grateful that our three children and six of our grandchildren will be here. We’re off to a good start for one of our favorite days of the year. The turkey is in the oven, the potatoes are peeled, the pie crusts will soon be filled with pumpkin, some of the food is already prepared and it won’t be long until the house is full of wonderful aroma and the sounds of thanksgiving. A Christmas tree is in place and waiting for the grandchildren to have fun decorating it. The Wii, the dollhouse, other toys, and our two Yorkies, Champ and Lady, are waiting and ready for the kids. Family, food, football, and grandkids — it’s going to another blessed thanksgiving! I hope our grandchildren will have good memories of Thanksgivings spent with us. It’s funny the things we remember from childhood. I remember one year my mom, dad, little brother and I went to spend Thanksgiving with Grandpa and Grandma Eaton. If it had rained too much, the car had to be parked next to the main road and folks had to walk to their house because the car could get hung up in the deep ruts of the muddy road. On a good day, you could usually drive as far as the big apple tree and park next to it and that’s where we parked on that Thanksgiving day more than 50 years ago. The men would usually go hunting while the women prepared the meal. My grandparents didn’t have a television or any toys to play with, but they lived on a farm that was an exciting place for a city kid like me to explore. Mealtime arrived and we sat down at the long table full of delicious food surrounded by hungry people who hoped grandpa would
Pastor Dan Eaton
say a short prayer. He prayed, the food was passed around and we had just started eating when the unthinkable happened. A loud sound (like someone “passing gas”) came from the chair where my Uncle Gene was sitting. Several us of were grinning, but grandma didn’t think it was funny. She kept her head down and her face became red as she tried to ignore what we all heard. A few minutes passed when the obnoxious sound was heard again. Grandma’s face became even redder as she glared at my uncle who smiled back at her. For a third time he made the sound and grandma yelled, “For goodness sake. Why don’t you leave the table and go outside!” We all laughed and laughed as my uncle showed her the metal “invention” with the rubber band that had made the sound. We thought it was really funny, but grandma didn’t seem to appreciate the joke. A lot of the people sitting around that table so many years ago have stepped into eternity. I hope that Grandpa and Grandma Eaton and the others that have passed away are seated at that big banquet table that the Lord has prepared. My wife, Janie, and I were married on thanksgiving weekend. This year’s holiday marks our 44th wedding anniversary but, as I write this, it won’t be long before our family starts arriving, so I better stop reminiscing and see if my sweetheart needs some help. I have so much to be thankful for! The psalmist was right when he wrote, “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. His love endures forever.”

“Nothing is a greater stranger to my breast, or a sin that my soul more abhors, than that black and detestable one, ingratitude.” ‑ George Washington
IT WAS NEWS THEN
One Year Ago • Vantage recently announced students involved in winter sports. Among those from the area are Kayla Waldron, Van Wert, bowling; Amelia Wiseman, Van Wert, cheerleading; Shelby Osborne, Lincolnview, basketball; Greg Rue, Ottoville, basketball; Chris Thatcher, bowling; and Shane Robenalt, Van Wert, swimming. 25 Years Ago — 1986 • Share Chain ’86 modeled after “Hands Across America” will take place Dec. 14 in downtown Delphos to raise money for the Delphos Community Christmas project.

High point man for the winners was Jim Dorman with 20 and Ed Jackson with 11 also tallied in the double figures column. • Santa Claus paid his first visit of the holiday season to Delphos on Friday afternoon. The jolly old fellow was featured in the annual Christmas parade, and after the parade, he treated children from his headquarters, a hut set up at the alley opening midway between Second and Third Street. The hut was constructed by the Delphos chapter of the Future Farmers of America under the supervision of Robert McBride, vocationalagriculture teacher. Lumber was donated by Delphos Bending Company. • Delphos St. John’s Blue Jays were on the short end of a 25-18 cage score last night in a season prevue game with the St. John’s Old Time cagers.

K. Miller as a member of the Delphos Board of Health was confirmed Tuesday night at a regular meeting of the city council. The appointment was made by Mayor W. H. Taylor. Dr. Miller will serve in place of David Ford, who resigned because he is no longer a resident of Delphos.
Remember the day when 80 or 90 was considered “old.” We have these photographs of our ancestors with the ladies in long dark dresses and the men in their suits. Maybe furnished by the photographer. Nobody smiled. Maybe because they didn’t have any teeth or maybe they had to sit motionless for long periods while the camera got focused. Now that I’m 80, I surely don’t consider it old, just older. Oh Sure! We can’t take the steps two at a time like I used to and I often use my faithful walking stick; it’s better than a cane. Many of my friends are 90 or 85 and they’re sure not “old”. More and more couples are celebrating their 50th or 60th wedding anniversaries. How wonderful! We can’t do things as fast as we could when we were thirty. It’s a good thing that I traveled when I did because I couldn’t climb a mountain in the Rockies like Hups and I did just a few years ago. Turning 90 sure hasn’t kept Paul Baumgarte from traveling. Just last spring he took the Panama Canal Cruise alone. He’s already planning his next trip. Paul and his daughter often travel together but Carol was teaching school, so she couldn’t make the trip. She did, however, take her father to the railroad station in Toledo for the first leg of the journey. Paul boarded The Amtrak Southwest Chief for a three day trip that took him through Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and California. Paul commented that while on the train to the west coast he went up to the dome car to just lay back and watch the stars. After arriving in Los Angeles the stayed overnight in the Millennium Biltmore Hotel. They were able to sleep in on Thursday morning or take a walk around the city. The group boarded The Queen Victoria at the San Pedro Cruise Terminal early in the afternoon. During the leisure afternoon they could unpack and get acquainted with the ship. The Queen Victoria set sail that afternoon, March 3 for the 15 day cruise. They were at sea for two days, and made a stop at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on Sunday. On Monday they visited Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Then they stopped at Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico. This is the fourth

Soldier Killed in Belgium A telegram received at 11:30 a.m. Sunday stated that Pfc. Hubert J. Berelsman, 21, one of the three service sons of Mr. and Mrs. Anton J. Berelsman, three and onehalf miles northeast of Fort Jennings, was killed in action on December 19, in Belgium. The young man, well known in this community, was born on August 11, 1923. He attended school at Ft. Jennings. Prior to his induction on July 3, 1943, at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana, he had been engaged in farming. He received his training at Camp Haan, California, Camp Livingston, Louisianna and Camp Edwards, Massachusetts. The later part of June 1944, he left for overseas duty. He was with the anti-aircraft and was in England and France before going to Belgium. He is survived by his parents and ten brothers and sisters: Sargent Linus Berelsman, France; Private Norbert S. Berelsman, England; William, Defiance; Mrs. Margaret Erhart and Mrs. Cecilia Plescher, Kalida; Mrs. Mary Hoersten and Mrs. Bernadine Hoersten, Ottoville; and Loretta, Albert and Olivia, at home.

Delphos Herald, Jan. 8, 1943 ---------What About Corn Pickers Every day, by mail, by telephone, by telegraphy, we are receiving urgent appeals from farmers for McCormickDeering corn pickers. With farm labor shortages even more acute than in 1943, the demand for pickers has skyrocketed. To help the situation we have: 1. Completed production of our 1944 corn picker program. 2. We actually built 50% more pickers than in any other year of the company’s history. 3. We have allocated these machines to the corn growing regions. Corn pickers are still under rationing and every picker we built has been allotted to a farmer with a rationing certificate for it. They were all sold before they left the factory. We can only suggest that our farmer friends follow the old helpful neighbor tradition that comes from the days of barn-raising and log-rolling. If they will have their machines and labor, much can be done to harvest this vital war-time International Harvester Company Delphos Herald, Oct. 9, 1944 Gas Service Shut Off The gas emergency in Delphos continues today and throughout Ohio and several other states in the central area. Through an order from the War Production Board, the gas was shut off Tuesday in all of the Delphos factories and remained off Wednesday with no indication as to when the ban will be lifted. The action was taken because of a critical gas shortage and the heavy users were cut off so that service could be maintained for domestic users. The gas water heaters on the west side of the canal were shut off Tuesday afternoon and officials of the West Ohio Gas Company which serves the city of Delphos, have asked that water heaters be shut off on the east side of the canal also. A plan is also being made to domestic users to use as little gas as possible until the situation is cleared up. Ed. Hinig, local manager of the West Ohio Company, and two maintenance men kept on duty at the local office throughout the night to be ready in case of any emercrop of corn.
memorable location I visited on our Panama Canal Cruise a few years back. There were eight of us widows traveling together and we were known as “The Spice Girls”!!!!!!. While riding through the country in Guatemala we saw some of the poorest area, where we saw a woman washing clothes in a lake and hanging the laundry on the bushes to dry. Felicia, Eda and I visited the Myan Ruins at Tegal. These were very impressive and I even climbed one of the pyramids.

Delphos Herald Jan. 2, 1945 ---------Rev. Father Nett Receives Word About Parents in Germany The Rev. James Nett, chaplain at St. Rita’s hospital, formerly assistant at Delphos St. John’s, has received first-hand information concerning the safety of his father, John Nett, 80, and his sister, Miss Sybilla Nett, who live in Lennep, near Cologne, Germany. He has learned that his father and sister are well and that their home was not damaged. Despite his advanced age, he is in remarkably good health. Mr. Nett and his daughter, will be remembered by local residents as they visited Father Nett in Delphos from May until July, 1939. A letter containing information about the Netts and enclosing a personal letter from Mr. Nett was received on April 30 by Father Nett. The writer was Frank Myers, a member of St. Paul’s parish, Norwalk, where Father Nett had served as assistant earlier.
After securing permission from his commanding officer to do so, Mr. Myers visited the Netts in their home. He had with him a church bulletin from Norwalk St. Paul’s at the time of Fr. Nett’s assignment from Norwalk to St. Rita’s. The bulletin bore a photograph of the priest. Mr. Myers said, too, he had presented Mr. Nett with two boxes of cigars which he had secured from a factory in a nearby town. The Netts had had no word of Father Nett since July 3, 1944. Delphos Herald, June 1, 1945 ---------Next Winter’s Coal P.G. Bogart, District OPA Director, announced that Consumer Declarations for next winters coal can be obtained by coal dealers at local War Price Rationing Boards. Mr. Bogart emphasized that this is in accordance with the recent order of the Solid Fuels Administration, requiring every consumer to file with his dealer a consumer declaration in order to obtain solid fuel for the 1945-46 heating season.

Thrift shop gearing up for holidays
By Margie Rostorfer The big, golden-brown bird has been roasted, carved, and enjoyed by family members who navigated their way, with some of their favorite “gettogether” dishes, to my daughter’s home with around 45 guests attending last evening. And, we’re doing it all over again with 35 expected guests today for my side of the family. Great food, great fun, great conversation–it all makes for a great family get-together! We get to see how much the little ones have grown and learn what’s all going on with each other, and discover that we truly do have a lot to be thankful for! At the thrift shop, we’re especially thankful for all of the wonderful volunteers who give so freely of their time– all in the mission of helping others in need. We have volunteers that can’t stand or lift anymore, but want to continue to help, so they call and organize the times that other volunteers can help. We have volunteers that want to sort but would rather not work a cash register during the business hours, and vice-versa. And then, again, some volunteers like doing both! It’s so hard to express just how much all of our volunteers are appreciated, no matter what capacity they choose to fulfill. “Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me” - Matthew 25:40. Right after Thanksgiving is the time when most people seem to do their decorating for the Christmas season. Stop in and browse the selection of decorations. While there, you might also find a great holiday sweater to wear for your parties, or a pretty, casual, winter sweatshirt to put on for meeting friends for coffee and conversation! There’s many giftgiving ideas as well. Be sure to check everything out! We’re so thankful for the tremendous support we have from our community. Because of your donations and generosity, we are able to help so many in need; with the direct result being that we now have plans to expand into yet another building that will be added on to the present location in order to add some extra retail area, storage space for the seasonal items, and a more efficient area to better serve those requesting help through our Social Services department, including educational materials and classes. Demolition of the building next to the thrift shop has begun. We have been blessed in the past by generous monetary donations–especially when the current thrift shop building was erected over the old site, and we will be most thankful again for any monetary help that might be given in this new endeavor. Please keep in mind that the thrift shop will be closed on Christmas Eve, Saturday, Dec. 24th, and again on New Year’s Eve, Saturday, Dec. 31st. The thrift shop is pleased to announce the appointment of Barbara Haggard to the position of Shop Coordinator. Barb has been volunteering at the thrift shop for seven years; first as a sorter, and then more recently coordinating the Toy Department. She is the daughter of Pat and the late Len Recker, and is married to Don Haggard. Barb and Don have three children: Don, Jr., a personal trainer in Cincinnati; Curt, employed in the Call Center at

She enjoys sewing, crafts, camping, and cooking. Stop in and welcome her to her new position. I couldn’t help but pass on this great idea I heard recently, especially appropriate with the up-coming holidays. Someone told me that at their family get-togethers, each and every person brings a non-perishable item to the party. It can be a canned or boxed food item, a paper product, a personal care item, or cleaning supplies. Each person places his donation in a big box, and it all gets donated to the food pantry here at the thrift shop. It’s a reminder and reinforcement to the little ones, as well as to the adults, that the true meaning of Christmas is in the giving—“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.” Everyone at the thrift shop extends their personal Best wishes for a happy, blessed, bountiful and safe holiday season and thanks you for your continued support in our endeavor to help those in need in our community! If you’d like to volunteer in any capacity, please contact the thrift shop at 419-692-2942. Until the next time, that’s this month’s report.

(Continued from Page 4) Paul said an English couple adopted him on the cruise and they became great friends. He also met an Amish couple from Holmes County, Noah and Emma Yoder of Charm. Two more days were spent at sea before the Queen Victoria docked at Fort Lauderdale Port Everglades on Friday morning March 18. Paul’s tour continued by train up the Atlantic coast to Washington D. C., where he visited his friend, Joe Will. Paul fulfilled his dream of seeing the World War II Memorial at night. Then it was back to Ohio following a very enjoyable journey. Now some facts about the Panama Canal. Ships traveling between New York and San Francisco save 7,872 miles by using the Panama Canal instead of going around Cape Horn. The Atlantic entrance to the Canal is actually 22 1/2 miles west of the Pacific entrance. Due to the reclining “S” shape of the Isthmus of Panama the sun rises from the Pacific and sets in the Atlantic Ocean. The most transits in a single day was 19 February 1968, when 65 ships crossed the isthmus. The Panama Canal was constructed in two stages. The first between 1881 and 1888, with work being carried out by a French company and secondly the work by the Americans, which eventually completed the canal construction between 1904 and 1914. Along the route of the canal, there is a series of three locks. The Gatun, Pedro Miguel and the Miraflores. At Gatun there are two parallel sets of locks, each consisting of three flights. Each lock has a width of at least 36 metres. Paul said when the Queen Victoria entered the Pacific entrance there were 50 to 60 boats lined
up to go through the canal. The fee to go through the locks is approximately 193,000.00 to go through one way. Work
is in progress to make wider locks along side the present locks. This is truly a man made wonder of the world.

Elida falls to Braves in first- Bath soaks Jays ever semi-final matchup
BY FRANK GERMAN The Delphos Herald BY KIRK DOUGAL Delphos Herald correspondent PIQUA – Elida jumped out to an early 21-point lead in their bid to send their first football team to the state finals but but five turnovers let Springfield Shawnee back into the ball game at Piqua High School on Friday and the Bulldogs fell to the Braves, 56-42. After the game, Elida head coach Jason Carpenter said those turnovers, plus a late second quarter touchdown by Shawnee to cut the deficit to 14 points, were the keys to the game. “We couldn’t get stops and when we did get one stop in the second half, we turned it right back over,” he said. “That was the difference in the ball game. They had all the momentum.” Elida could not have asked for a better start to the game. After a three-and-out and a punt by the Bulldogs, Shawnee took over on their own 34-yard line. As the Braves’ big Alex McCrory – 6’1” and 220 pounds – rumbled through the line breaking Elida tackles for ten yards, he fought just a little too long and fumbled the ball on the way to the ground. The Bulldogs recovered the ball in the ensuing scrum and made Shawnee pay immediately for the turnover. On the next play, Elida’s Reggie McAdams dropped back in the pocket and found Austin Etlzer behind the defense on a seam route and the senior wideout took the catch all the way to the end zone for a 44-yard touchdown and 7-0 Bulldog lead. After forcing a Shawnee punt following one first down, Elida went to work. They picked up a first down on an 11-yard stop route to Brandon Stinson, but two plays later were faced with a third and ten. This time McAdams overthrew his intended receiver and DB Nick Hines picked off the pass for the Braves. Shawnee went stayed in their familiar ground game out of the pistol set and quarterback Brad Jarzab went for 28 yards on a third and nine play. Following a 14-yard pass play to Tyler Sherrock, the Braves kept the ball on the ground, knocking off six and seven yards at a clip. Jarzab finally ended the drive when he scampered in from seven yards out to tie the game at 7-7. Again Elida answered quickly. With Shawnee playing soft on the corners, laying back as far as seven yards off the line, the Bulldogs were content to go with inside routes and bubble screens. Jeremy Newby picked up 17 yards on one catch and Etzler had 15 more before Elida took a chance. Etzler ran a perfect double move and McAdams laid the pass up the right side line. When Etzler finished running, he had a 38-yard touchdown pass and a 14-7 Bulldog lead as time ran down in the first quarter. The Bulldog defense forced another punt but McAdams was picked off again, this time for a pick six. Drew Yooung jumped the post route for the Braves and took the interception back 44 yards to tie the game again as the second quarter began. That score fired up Elida, however, and for most of the rest of the half played like they would be playing again next Friday night. Nick Pauff sat down in the zone and caught a 13-yard score, breaking two tackles at the two-yard line to get in the end zone. Then Etzler finished off a 90-yard Bulldog drive by diving and hauling in a four-yard scoring pass – his third of the half - on third and goal. That was followed an eight-yard pass to Newby for another score with only 45 seconds remaining in the half, giving Elida what appeared to be an insurmountable 35-14 lead. But Shawnee hooked up for a 24-yard catch-and-run to Sherrock, a seam route for 26 yards to Jordan Huggins an one more time in the seam for a 35-yard touchdown to Hines, completing a 35-second drive and closing the score to 35-21, Elida, at the half. Reggie McAdams had a huge first half, throwing for 322 yards and five touchdowns with two interceptions. Etzler, seven catches for 139 yards and two scores, and Stinson, seven catches for 130 yards, were the main recipients. But as control as Elida appeared to be in the first half, the second half and the game slipped away just that fast. Shawnee marched 65 yards on its first drive of the second half for a score and then followed that up after an Elida fumble with a fiveplay, 68-yard drive to tie the game at 35. The Bulldogs answered with the only drive on the night where they flashed a running game with Anthony Sumpter carrying the ball four times for 58 yards, the final attempt a three-yard dive with the running back reaching over the end zone line for the score and a 42-35 lead. It was the last time on the night Elida would score. Shawnee’s offense could not be stopped the rest of the night as the they touched the ball four time the rest of the game – ending with three touchdowns and one kneel down to end the game. “I’m still kind of shocked we gave a 21-point lead,” said Carpenter. “But give them credit for for getting a touchdown right before the half which made it 14 points which was huge. Then they took all the momentum in the second half and, unfortunately, we couldn’t put anything together.” Shawnee’s Jarzab was 10 of 21 passing for 172 yards and two touchdowns. He also led the team with 194 yards on 19 attempts while McCrory added 99 yards on 21 carries. As a team the Braves had 24 first downs, and 510 yards of total offense. They had only one turnover. Elida’s McAdams was 30 of 36 passing for 393 yards, five touchdowns but four interceptions. Stinson ended up with 13 catches for 169 yards and Etzler had 8 catches for 147 yards and three touchdowns. Sumpter led the team with six rushes for 57 yards. The Bulldogs had 20 first downs and 441 total yards of offense in the game. BATH TOWNSHIP — The Lady Jays traveled to Bath township last night for the Kewpee Tip Off Classic to face the Wildkittens in the first round. The game started off close, but the Wildkittens pulled away to a 46 to 26 win over St. John’s. The Jays fell behind in the second quarter to Bath with a 3 pointer from Jess Johns which broke the tie only 13 seconds into the quarter. The teams went up and down the court, but neither team could score until the ice was broken after 5:34 of no scoring.

The quarter ended by Bath’s Johns just missing a three from the top of the key with one second left. St. John’s Coach Dan Grothouse relayed: “I thought we did some things well. We broke some pressure and hit some shots. We loss some confidence and Bath took advantage of that. We learned some things we need to work on.” The third quarter was were both teams found the rim for the night. Bath started off the scoring again with a lay up

Lady Green rolls over Raiders Knights fall to Cougars in momentum before Siefker By Brian Bassett
Times Bulletin Sports Editor email@example.com VAN WERT — The Wayne Trace Lady Raiders and the Ottoville Lady Green met to open area girls basketball regular season in the 6 p.m. game of the Girls McDonald’s Tip-Off Tournament Friday at Van Wert High School. The Lady Green jumped out early and never looked back, en route to a 76-34 win - sending them to Saturday’s championship game. The teams traded baskets to open the game, as Rachel Turnwald put the Lady Green ahead with a deep jump-shot to open the action, and Lauren Speice answered with a lay-up at the other end of the floor to tie the game at two. Lauren Koch then drove the lane and laid in a basket to give Ottoville a 4-2 lead, which they would not relinquish. Koch and Abby Siefker both recorded threepoint-plays after being fouled during a 22-2 run to finish the first quarter. After one, the Lady Green led 26-4. A Koch three-pointer in the second half gave Ottoville a 35-6 lead mid-way through the second half, and Siefker put back a missed Ottoville free-throw to give Ottoville a 40-6 lead - which prompted a Wayne Trace time-out. Wayne trace’s Krystal Wannemacher answered out of the break with a jump-shot, before Ottoville answered by expanding their lead to 44-8. With the score 46-10 late in the half, Wayne Trace’s Kari Myers converted on consecutive possessions, and an Ashley Saylor lay-up gave the Lady Raiders momentum heading into the half. Ottoville led at halftime, 46-16. The second half started much like the first, with Ottoville drawing first blood as Turnwald found Lauren Kramer for an easy basket to make the score 48-16. Wannemacher was then fouled after making a basket, and converted the free-throw for three points, making the score 49-19. The lady Green answered with a 7-0 run before Saylor hit a free throw to make the score 56-20. Ottoville put together another run, however, to lead 64-22 at the end of the third quarter. Wannemacher opened the fourth stanza with a jumpshot to give the Lady Raiders found Kramer for a lay-up. Wannemacher answered with another jump-shot to make the score 67-26, and she later hit a pair of free throws to cut the Lady Green lead to 40, 69-29. With the score 76-32 Myers scored for Wayne Trace which would be the last score of the night, as the Lady Green ran out the clock for the easy victory, 76-34. Wayne Trace had 17 turnovers to Ottoville’s 11. Koch and Siefker paced the Lady Green with 18 points each, Siefker’s 11 rebounds gave her a doubledouble to open the season. Wannemacher was the highscorer for the Lady Raiders, with 12 points. “Coming into the game we knew we were up against some tough competition. We had some mental lapses, I thought. Handling the ball and trying to score were two situations we are going to be faced with all year long. Ottoville is a good team, they put some pressure on us. We’ll get better, playing good teams is going to help us down the road,” Wayne Trace coach Greg Davis said. Ottoville coach Dave Kleman pointed out his team’s depth in helping them pull away. “I was pleased with our effort. We were a little ragged when we got up but I was pleased with us getting up and down the floor, playing hard. We have a lot of people getting in the mix, we have a lot of people who can do things. Tonight Lauren Koch led us but we have probably seven or eight girls who could lead us every night. We have a lot of versatility with our lineup too because we have a lot of different type of players. We’ve got a lot of size, we’ve got speed. If I want to go speed I can put a lot of speed in. There’s just a lot of different things we can do,” he said. Davis said he was proud of the fight he saw in his team. “I told the girls in [the locker room] they never gave up, and that’s all we ever ask of them.” The win moves the Lady Green into the championship match of the Tip-Off classic with a 1-0 record on the young season. They will face the Van Wert Lady Cougars who beat Crestview in the night cap. The Lady Raiders will face the Crestview Lady Knights in the consolation game Saturday, as they move to 0-1 on the season. By Kevin Wannemacher Times Bulletin Business Manager firstname.lastname@example.org VAN WERT – Host Van Wert scored 14 of the game’s first 18 points and held off a late rally by visiting Crestview as the Lady Cougars posted a 42-34 victory over the lady Knights in the second semi-final contest of the McDonald’s Tip Off Classic Friday night. With the win, the Lady Cougars advance to Saturday’s championship contest against perennial power Ottoville. The Big Green rolled past Wayne Trace 76-34 in the first semi-final. Van Wert’s Brooke Keber helped give the hosts the quick lead, hitting three treys in the opening stanza as the Cougars grabbed the ten-point advantage. Erin Morrow also had a threepointer for Van Wert as the Cougars hit key outside shots early on. The Cougars also used a strong and aggressive defensive effort in the first quarter, forcing five Crestview turnovers in the period. Van Wert led 14-6 at the end of eight minutes of action. “I thought the girls came out excited to play and really played hard,” noted Cougar coach Lance Moonshower. “We were able to hit some shots early on and it gave us some early confidence as well.” “We don’t have the firepower to get behind good teams and have to come back,” commented Crestview coach Greg Rickard. “I thought our girls battled and continued to battle all night long but that early deficit was crucial.” Each squad scored five points in the second stanza as the Van Wert posted a 19-11 advantage at the intermission. The Lady Cougars and Lady Knights then added eight points each in the third period with the Cougar lead at 27-19 entering the final period. “We played even with them for a couple of quarters but just didn’t make any headway on trimming down the deficit,” Rickard continued. Crestview finally started cutting into the deficit in the fourth quarter. The

lady Knights got treys by Mackenzie Richard and Danica Hicks to pull within 33-29 at the 4:34 mark. “You have to give Crestview credit,” Moonshower added. “Those kids just continued to play and they made a run their in the fourth quarter. But I though our girls did a good job of playing through that and we were able to hit some big free throws down the stretch after struggling at the line earlier.” A pair of Erin Morrow free throws pushed the Cougar lead to 35-29 before Crestview answered. Two Madison Etzler free throws and a Hicks trey brought the red-white-andblue within 35-34. However, Van Wert quickly answered on an Alex Morrow basket that put the Cougars on top 37-34 and kept the momentum on Van Wert’s side. “Alex hit a big shot there in the fourth quarter after they got it down to one,” Moonshower noted. “They had the momentum and that really helped to swing some of that momentum back our way.” The lady Knights had a chance to tie the contest, trailing 37-34, but two errant shots and a turnover were too much to overcome. A Keber foul shot along with four Alex Morrow charity tosses sealed the 42-34 victory for Van Wert. “Overall, we saw some positives tonight,” concluded Rickard. “We did some good things but we also did some bad things. The biggest thing for this basketball team is to improve as we go. We have to make good decisions with the basketball.” “I am pleased with the win but we also know we have to get better each night,” Moonshower concluded. “It’s good to open this way but we have a long way to go. We need to keep getting better every day.” Alex Morrow led the way for the hosts with 20 points, with Keber adding ten. Hicks bucketed 18 markers for the Knights. Van Wert won the battle of the boards in the contest, 27-23, but also committed more turnovers, 20-18. The Cougars were 13 of 32 from the field (41 percent) while Crestview on 13 of 39 shots (33 percent).

Erica Saine got the rebound and put the ball back up with a 5 foot jumper for 27-23 ball game. The Wildkittens took control of the ball game from this point to score 8 unanswered points. Bath’s Ruhe took advantage of two three point plays in less then a minute. She was fouled making baskets both times and nailed her foul shots. The last points of the third quarter was once again another 3 point play. Bath’s Audrey Brandon took advantage of hitting her shot and the foul shot with 24.7 second left. The quarter ended with Jays being out scored 20-13 to end the third with a Bath lead of 35-23. The fourth quarter was almost all Bath. They out scored the Lady Jays 11- 3 and scored the first points in all four quarters. Bath’s Madison Clark started it off with a three from the right wing.

Miller fined for hit in game against Jets
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Eight days after a sensational performance against the New York Jets, Denver linebacker Von Miller was fined $25,000 for roughing the passer in that game. The rookie pass-rusher was confused Friday about which hit got him in trouble. He said his letter from the league noted he was getting docked for hitting quarterback Mark Sanchez in the chest, although he suspected the fine was actually for a late hit in which he struck Sanchez in the back. “The hit that has all the controversy was the one where I hit him in the back a couple of seconds late,” Miller said. “On that play, my shoulder hit him in the back. I’m kind of foggy about which hit it was. I’m sure it’s one of them. “I’m not saying that I didn’t commit a hit that I should be fined for because I did get to him a couple of times, but that’s part of the game now. It’s all about player safety and I don’t have anything to say about player safety. We’ve got to make adjustments to take the quarterback down in other ways.” It’s Miller’s second infraction this month. He also was fined $15,000 for hitting Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer in the chin three weeks ago. Miller’s was one of several fines the league handed down Friday. San Francisco safety Dashon See MILLER, page 7
Goldson was fined $25,000 by the NFL on Friday for punching Arizona receiver Early Doucet in last Sunday’s game. Doucet was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness when he struck Goldson in the helmet area. Goldson then threw his punches. At the end of a play early in the fourth quarter, Goldson was down away from the ball when he got blindsided and slapped on the back of the helmet by Doucet. Goldson jumped up, confronted him and both began swinging wildly. Goldson then threw a series of punches to Doucet’s facemask and received a 15-yard personal foul penalty before being ejected. Seattle safety Kam Chancellor was fined $40,000 for unnecessary roughness against Rams tight end Lance Kendricks. The previous week, Chancellor was docked $20,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit against Baltimore wide receiver Anquan Boldin. Philadelphia receiver/kick returner DeSean Jackson was fined $10,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct; he flipped the ball toward Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell after a 50-yard reception. “When that incident happened I just thought that it was a hotly contested game at that moment and I just thought he made an error in judgment,” Fewell said. “He was just excited about the catch and I think he

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES November 16, 2011 Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for Lake Erie walleye is 6 fish. The minimum size limit is 15 inches. The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. The steelhead daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler with a minimum size limit of 12 inches. The Lake Erie black bass (largemouth and smallmouth) daily bag limit is 5 fish and a minimum size limit of 14 inches. Walleye: Windy weather has continued to limit fishing opportunities over the past week (as of 11/16). There have been a few reports from N of Kelleys Island and from Cedar Point to Lorain in 25-45 feet of water. Trolling with deep-diving crankbaits has produced the most fish. There have also been reports of fish caught at night around Cleveland harbor and nearshore from Huron to Vermilion by anglers trolling shallow-diving stickbaits or casting from shore. Steelhead: Stream and pier anglers have an excellent opportunity to catch qualitysized fish through May. The Division of Wildlife annually stocks five Lake Erie tributary streams with 6- to 8-inch yearling Little Manistee River (Michigan) strain of steelhead. These fish migrate out into Lake Erie and spend the summer in the cooler part of the lake before returning to streams during the fall through the spring. Steelhead trout caught by anglers in the streams typically average 25 inches long and weigh 5-6 pounds. These fish have usu-
ally spent 2-3 summers out in the lake. However, there are a good number of fish that are over 30 inches and weigh more than 10 pounds and have spent up to six summers in the lake. Ohio’s primary steelhead streams are Vermilion, Rocky, Chagrin and Grand rivers and Conneaut Creek. Several other rivers including the Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Huron and Black rivers and Arcola, Cowles, Wheeler, French, Euclid, Turkey, Beaver and Cold creeks get runs of stray steelheads. While DOW biologists have noted a small amount of natural reproduction, it varies greatly from year-to-year. It is too low and erratic to support the quality fishery that has been developed and that anglers have come to expect. Good quantities of cold, spring water and adequate juvenile trout habitat are also rare in NE Ohio’s Lake Erie tributaries. The fantastic fishing has been maintained by annual stocking and by the practice of most anglers to catch and release. For the near future, the Rocky, Chagrin and Grand rivers are scheduled to receive 90,000 fish. Conneaut Creek is scheduled to receive 75,000 fish from Ohio and 75,000 fish from the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission. The Vermilion River is scheduled to receive 55,000 steelhead. Total targeted annual stocking numbers projected from Ohio hatcheries will remain at 400,000 steelhead; there are no current plans to deviate from this target. All steelhead for Ohio’s program are raised at the DOW’s Castalia State Fish Hatchery. Stocking numbers were lower in 2011 due to hatchery contingencies, external production losses and

Flyers seek revenge, state finals vs. Blue Jays
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ delphosherald.com Marion Local mentor Tim Goodwin has built a solid Marion Local gridiron program by focusing on the “old-school” points: strong defense that doesn’t give up big plays; solid running game, still with the ability to throw the ball when needed; limiting turnovers, penalties and other mistakes; and simply playing good, hardnosed football. That is why his Flyers are consistently in the running for state honors. That is also why his Flyers (11-2) are battling co-Midwest Athletic Conference champion St. John’s (7-1) at 7 p.m. tonight at Wapakoneta’s Harmon Field. “We haven’t changed much in our approach. We’re playing good football, as we have most of the year,” Goodwin said. “Our quarterback, Adam Bertke, has been playing pretty well and our tailback, Jake Heitkamp, has really stepped up. I wasn’t sure what to expect from both of those guys at the start of the year since they were new starters but they have become very dependable players, especially as they have gained varsity experience. Our offensive line has been solid most of the year; we basically had an entirely new front five and they have steadily improved to this point. “The defense has been strong all season, both against the run and the pass. We changed to the 3-4 and as the kids have settled into it, getting both more comfortable and confident in what they are supposed to do, our effectiveness has gotten progressively tougher.” The Flyers are putting up 33.8 points and 333.7 yards (186 rushing) per game behind Heitkamp (274 rushes, 1,663
some disease issues. During the previous two steelhead seasons (Fall 2008 through Spring 2010), the DOW conducted creel surveys to evaluate steelhead fisheries and gain knowledge about our fish returns, fishing pressure and angler demographics and opinions. Results from the creel surveys have been summarized in a final report (PDF) which is available on the web site ... www.Ohio. gov/departmentofnaturalresources. Thanks go out to the many anglers who participated in our follow-up study of Ohio’s steelhead anglers in cooperation with the Ohio State University School of Environment and Natural Resources. The department learned a lot of good things about the popularity of the Ohio steelhead program, motivations of our steelheaders and the avidity of our steelhead anglers. A PDF copy of the final report can be found on the site above. Where to catch ’em: Main

rivers are high, off-color and receding; smaller tribs were clearing slowly. Catches have been good in the lower and middle reaches of rivers, with some large fish being caught. They have been caught in the upper reaches and in smaller tribs, as well, when water conditions were good. Spin-fishing anglers have been using jigs tipped with maggots, trout or salmon eggs, shiners and egg sacs. Fly anglers have been using streamers, nymphs, egg patterns, sucker spawn and woolly buggers.

did anything intentionally. “It shocked me. I was surprised by it but it wasn’t about me and it wasn’t about him at that time.” Eagles DT Trevor Laws was fined $7,500 for unnecessary roughness; he struck Giants QB Eli Manning late and away from the play after an Eagles interception. Miami’s Tyrone Culver was fined $20,000 for unnecessary roughness for striking a defenseless player, Buffalo receiver Stevie Johnson, in the head and neck area. Miller, the second overall draft pick had his best game yet in the Broncos’ 17-13 win over the Jets, making 10 tackles, nine solo, three tackles for loss, 1 1/2 sacks, a forced fumble and a pass breakup. Now he’s got a $25,000 fine to go with it. “I mean, it stings, but it

yards, 27 TDs), Bertke (108of-189 passing, 1,815 yards, 20 TDs, 7 picks; 4 rushing scores), Lee Pierron (43 receptions, 683 yards, 10 TDs, 46 PATs, 106 points), Dylan Thobe (46 catches, 745 yards, 7 scores), Jacy Goettemoeller (36 rushes, 232 yards, 5 TDs) and Kellen Goettemoeller (11 catches, 194 yards, 2 scores). The Flyers have outscored their foes 305-76 in the first half, especially 169-40 in the second period, as they are giving up 10.8 and 205.7 yards (71 rushing) per outing. That crew is led by Justin Rutschilling (14 solo tackles, 98 assists; 8 sacks), Trevor Homan (25 and 84), Kyle Mescher (20 and 75), Kremer (17 solos, 62 assists), Jack Homan (10 and 57; 7 sacks), Alaric Keller (7 solos, 53 assists; 7 sacks), Alex Rosenbeck (21 solos, 35 assists), Pierron (39 and 10) and Mitch Kremer (21 punts, 31.2 average). Goodwin figures he is looking at a mirror image of his team as they prepare for the Blue Jays (10-3) tonight, a team who beat them 21-14 in Week 9. “They do things pretty much the same way we do: solid running game, great defense, not turning the ball over, playing hard-nosed football and not beating themselves. We know each other so well and neither of us is going to change a whole lot in our game plans; we’ll use what has gotten us here,” Goodwin added. “What it comes down to is the standard things that become even more important now: field position, turnovers, mistakes, not giving up the big plays, all those things. Both of these teams are evenly-matched, so one play here or there could be the gamewinner. We can’t take a play off on either side.”
really doesn’t hurt that much, because I play the game for my teammates,” Miller noted. And some of those teammates were bemused by Miller’s latest run-in with the league’s disciplinarians. “The league is so touchyfeely what we can and cannot do running full-speed, so there’s no use in me sitting here and going on a tantrum on what we can and can’t do,” safety Brian Dawkins said. “We just have to go out and play fullspeed and whatever happens, happens.” Miller said that while he’ll try to adjust his tackling technique, he won’t be holding back. “I’m definitely going to keep playing with fanatical effort and relentless pursuit to the ball,” he added. “As far as hits ... I’ve just got to make those adjustments so I don’t get fined.”

Aluminum foil makes cleaning easier
George Foreman grill tip: I’ve always used my grill a lot but I disliked cleaning it, fearful that the nonstick coating might come off. Now I use aluminum foil, folding it in half and putting the meat (or whatever I want to cook) inside. After I finish cooking I just throw away the foil. I buy the nonstick foil for fish but one could also use cooking spray. The foil eliminates any mess to clean up and it saves time when I have company because I wrap the food in foil ahead of time, ready to place on the grill. -- Pam, email Color at home: I’ve been coloring my own hair since a grocery clerk told me he gave me the ‘senior citizen discount’ because my hair had gone completely gray (I was 40 at the time). A hairdresser friend gave me some tips: -- Pick a color only a few shades off from your natural color. If you’re gray, go a few shades lighter and choose a color with ‘ash’ in the title, such as ‘ash blond.’ It hides missed spots better if you’re doing it yourself and won’t be so obvious once it starts to fade. Avoid red, which fades quickly. -- Buy a permanent color the first time, but use a ‘28-wash’ formula between colorings to keep your color fresh without turning your hair into wicked-witch broomstraws.

Moderate drinking is healthy - but don’t go overboard
DEAR DOCTOR K: I enjoy an alcoholic beverage from time to time. Now I hear it may actually be good for my heart health. How can I enjoy regular drinking without it becoming a harmful habit? DEAR READER: What you’ve heard is true. Study after study has shown that moderate alcohol consumption is associated with good health. But -- and it’s an important “but” -- alcohol is healthful only if you drink moderately and don’t go overboard. A little may be better than none, and also better than more. In order to be sure you’re drinking moderately, you have to know exactly what that means. Moderate drinking means one or two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women. The limit is higher for men because they are larger than women, on average. Men also metabolize alcohol differently. One alcoholic drink is usually defined as a beverage that contains 14 grams of alcohol. By that standard, a 12-ounce bottle of beer that’s 5 percent alcohol counts as a single drink. So does a 5-ounce glass of wine that’s 12 percent alcohol. Ditto for 1.5 ounces of hard liquor that’s 40 percent alcohol (80 proof). The health benefits of moderate alcohol intake are strongest for protection against heart attack and stroke. It can also help increase “good” HDL cholesterol. Moderate drinking also seems to lower your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and having gallstones. It also appears to protect you against developing dementia in old age. Unfortunately, the news isn’t all good: Moderate drinking seems to increase the risk of colon and breast cancer. Women may be able to reduce the breast cancer risk some by increasing their intake of folate. If you’re drinking more than the recommended daily amount of alcohol, its benefits quickly vanish. Not only that, there’s a long list of harmful side effects that take their place, including serious liver disease (cancer and cirrhosis), high blood pressure, certain cancers, traffic accidents and violence. So what’s considered heavy drinking? The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism defines it for men as more than four drinks Dr. Anthony L. Komaroff, M.D.

in a single day or more than 14 in a week. For women, it’s defined as more than three drinks in a single day or more than seven in a week. You may have heard that certain kinds of alcoholic drinks are “healthier” for you than others. In particular, you may have heard that red wine is particularly healthy. This is a controversial area. I think the current evidence does not suggest that red wine is any healthier than other types of alcoholic drink. There are health benefits from moderate alcohol intake of any type. If you’re worried that you’re drifting into heavy drinking, keep track of how much you drink. If you decide you need to slow down, try to follow the guidelines above. And if you find you have trouble doing so, talk to your doctor about it. Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

The Herald –9
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2011 Favorable changes are indicated for you both socially and commercially in the coming solar cycle. However, the friends you meet through social circles aren’t likely to be the ones who are fortunate for you where commerce is concerned. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Because you’re in a strong, favorable pattern at this time financially, you’re not apt to miss out on any good moneymaking ideas. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Companions are likely to sense your cooperative spirit and even though they’ll need you more than you’ll need them, you’ll help them out however and whenever you can. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It’s usually not a great idea to let our emotions rule our logic, but today you won’t hesitate to make a decision with your heart when you see someone in dire need of help. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Keep a positive and hopeful attitude if you find yourself being confronted by some negative circumstances. When you think, “win,” you usually come out on top. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- This is a good day to put a new plan into motion regarding how to use some new funds. Make sure you include putting some away for a rainy day, and everything should come out just fine. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your ability to organize and run matters involving several people is better than usual. If you’re not the one in command, offer suggestions to whoever is in charge. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It won’t be just brains that make you such a strong leader, it will be Lady Luck herself who will be helping you. Be sure to give her a lot of credit, so that she’ll keep helping. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You’ll be more successful dealing with important people when you can do so on an individual basis. The fewer people involved, the less confusing things will get.

Give even the most hare-brained scheme due consideration. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2011 In the year ahead, it might not be as important to have a large number of friends as it will be to have a few good, loyal ones. However, even if you intend to keep your friendship circle intimate, remain nice to everybody. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Before launching any new projects, make sure you have finished to your satisfaction everything else on your drawing board. Trouble would ensue if endeavors overlap.

Italy’s borrowing rates skyrocket, Monti scrambles
By FRANCES D’EMILIO and COLLEEN BARRY ROME — A week into his new job, Premier Mario Monti is running out of time to reassure nervous investors that his government has a strategy to deal with Italy’s crippling debts. The nation’s borrowing rates skyrocketed Friday after a grim set of bond auctions, with a new auction looming Tuesday. Another borrowing debacle could ratchet up fears that Italy has entered a debt spiral driving it toward bankruptcy and the 17-nation eurozone into its most acute crisis yet. Monti’s government of socalled “technocrats” is battling to convince investors that it has a successful strategy to reduce the country’s (euro) 1.9 trillion ($2.6 trillion) debt. But Friday’s dismal bond auction results for the eurozone’s third largest economy temporarily battered Europe’s stock markets. The auction outcome also is likely to fuel calls for European Union officials to do more to jumpstart economic growth and the European Central Bank to use more firepower to cool down a rapidly escalating debt crisis. “We still haven’t found a response that reassures investors,” said Jose Manuel Barroso, head of the European Commission. “As long as we’re unable to do that, we’ll have very serious problems and discussions in Europe.” He spoke during a visit to Portugal, which, like eurozone members Greece and Ireland, has taken an EU bailout to avoid bankruptcy. Stephen Lewis, an analyst at Monument Securities, agreed with that outlook. “The signs are that the euro will need a highly skilled financial engineer at the controls if it is to withstand the strains it is likely to face in the five remaining weeks of this year,” he said. Driving market fears is the knowledge that Italy is too big for Europe to bail out. Given the size of its debts — Italy must refinance (euro) 200 billion by the end of April alone — the government is depending on investors for money. But when borrowing rates get too high that can fuel a potentially devastating debt spiral which could bankrupt the country. Friday’s auctions showed that investors see Italian debt as increasingly risky. The country had to pay an average yield of 7.814 percent to raise (euro) 2 billion ($2.7 billion) in two-year bills — sharply higher than the 4.628 percent it paid in the previous auction in October. And even raising (euro) 8 billion ($10.7 billion) for six months proved exorbitantly expensive, as

First of 3 arrested US students leaves Egypt
CAIRO (AP) — A Cairo airport official says the first of three American students arrested during a protest in Cairo has left Egypt. Luke Gates, 21, left Cairo early Saturday morning on a flight to Frankfurt, Germany. An Egyptian court ordered the release of Gates, along with Derrik Sweeney and Gregory Porter, both 19, on Thursday. All were studying at the American University in Cairo. The three were arrested on the roof of a university building near Cairo’s iconic Tahrir Square on Sunday. Officials accused them of throwing firebombs at security forces fighting with protesters. The other two are expected to leave on separate flights later Saturday morning, the airport official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief reporters. Attorney Theodore Simon, who represents the 19-yearold Porter, a student at Drexel University in Philadelphia, said police escorted the students to the airport late Friday local time. Simon said he and Porter’s mother both spoke by phone with the student, who is from the Philadelphia suburb of Glenside. “He clearly conveyed to me ... that he was OK,” Simon told the AP.
the yield for that spiked to 6.504 percent, nearly double the 3.535 percent rate last month. Following the grim auction news, Italy’s borrowing rates in the markets shot higher, with the 10-year yield spiking 0.34 percentage point to 7.30 percent — above the 7 percent threshold that forced other euro nations into bailouts. Solid returns on Wall Street helped European markets recover from earlier losses Friday fueled by fears over Italy.
Airlines cut small jets as fuel prices soar
By JOSHUA FREED The Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS — The little planes that connect America’s small cities to the rest of the world are slowly being phased out. Airlines are getting rid of these planes — their leastefficient — in response to the high cost of fuel. Delta, United Continental, and other big airlines are expected to park, scrap or sell hundreds of jets with 50 seats or fewer in coming years. Small propeller planes are meeting the same fate. The loss of those planes is leaving some little cities with fewer flights or no flights at all. The Airports Council International says 27 small airports in the continental U.S., including St. Cloud, Minn., and Oxnard, Calif., have lost service from wellknown commercial airlines over the last two years. More shutdowns are planned. Travelers in cities that have lost service now must drive or take buses to larger airports. That adds time and stress to travel. St. Cloud lost air service at the end of 2009 after Delta eliminated flights on 34-seat turboprops. Now, passengers from the city of 66,000 have a 90-minute drive to the Minneapolis airport 65 miles to the southeast. Roger Geraets, who works for an online education company based near St. Cloud., flies at least twice a month from Minneapolis. He used to connect from St. Cloud. Now he drives, leaving an extra half hour for bad traffic. There are other headaches. Parking at St. Cloud was free, but in Minneapolis it costs $14 per day. And getting through airport security in Minneapolis takes longer. Another city without service is Oxnard, 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles, which lost three daily turboprop flights operated on
Joy Sweeney told the AP her son, a 19-year-old Georgetown University student from Jefferson City, Missouri, would fly from Frankfurt to Washington, then on to St. Louis. She said family will meet him when he arrives late Saturday. “I am ecstatic,” Sweeney said Friday. “I can’t wait for him to get home tomorrow night. I can’t believe he’s actually going to get on a plane. It is so wonderful.” The 21-year-old Gates is a student at Indiana University. Sweeney said she had talked with her son Friday afternoon and “he seemed jubilant.”
Motives of foreign student recruiters questioned
By ALAN SCHER ZAGIER The Associated Press COLUMBIA, Mo. — As American universities welcome ever-greater numbers of international students, some professors and admissions counselors are questioning the motives of the very professionals who have helped attract so many foreign scholars to their campuses. Higher education recruiters are under fire from detractors who say they put profit ahead of students’ best interests. Critics accuse them of sending thousands of unqualified applicants to the U.S. every year, sometimes allowing students to skip basic English tests and falsify applications to make a quick commission. “The student is best served by having the widest range of information available about what might be the best fit,” said Peggy Blumenthal, an executive vice president at the not-for-profit Institute of International Education, which monitors and promotes study abroad programs. Recruiting agents “have a very large incentive to deliver a student who may not be the best fit.” A leading group of admissions counselors even proposed an outright ban on the use of international recruiters who are paid based on the
behalf of United. The airport’s website advises travelers to catch a bus to Los Angeles International Airport. Atilla Taluy, a tax preparer who lives in Oxnard, ends up driving or taking the shuttle to Los Angeles. “In morning traffic, it becomes quite a burdensome trip,” he says. Pierre, S.D., will lose Delta flights to Minneapolis in mid-January. Pierre officials are waiting to find out whether those flights will be replaced or whether the city will be left with only Great Lakes Airlines flights to Denver. The Denver flights add almost 600 miles in the wrong direction for people who want to fly from South Dakota’s capital to Washington, D.C. “I don’t know if they really care about (passengers) in the small markets,” says Rick Steece, a consultant for the Centers for Disease Control who travels overseas from Pierre two to three times a year.

Black Friday warriors: They just keep shopping
The Associated Press For true Black Friday warriors, Thanksgiving wasn’t a day off, but a chance to prepare for battle. Lots of people meander to the mall on the day after Thanksgiving just to see what the fuss is about. Others get up early, drive to the closest big-box store, grab the laptop they’ve been coveting and run back to bed. But the truly devoted skip out on family dinners. They print maps of the floor plans of their favorite stores. They shop straight through the night, fueled either by caffeine or just the thrill of the almighty discount. Those who are less fanatical about Black Friday would never dream of giving up their free time to go to one of the major stores like Macy’s, Target and Best Buy when they opened for the first time at midnight or on Thanksgiving Day itself. But die-hard Black Friday shoppers pushed forward with elaborate shopping plans on Friday, the latest sign of just how far people will go to get a good deal in the weak economy. Millie Ayala, 28, and her two sisters barely got a chance to finish up their Thanksgiving feast before they headed to the Toys “R” Us in New York’s Times Square to get in line at 5:30 p.m., more than three hours before the store’s opening. The three sisters carried printouts of the store’s ads and
Syria faces sanctions but army stands by regime
BEIRUT (AP) — The Syrian military vowed Friday to “cut every evil hand” that targets the country’s security, a defiant stance by the regime as it faces the possibility of sweeping economic sanctions from the Arab League. The military statement could signal darker days to come in an eight-month revolt against President Bashar Assad that is turning more violent by the day. Until recently in the uprising, most of the bloodshed came as security forces fired on mainly peaceful protests. But there have been growing reports of army defectors and armed civilians fighting Assad’s forces — a development that some say plays into the regime’s hands by giving government troops a pretext to crack down with overwhelming force. “The choice offered by the regime appears clear-cut: preservation of Assad’s rule or collective destruction,” the International Crisis Group said in a report this week. Assad blames the unrest on a foreign plot to destabilize Syria, saying extremists and terrorists — not true reformers — are driving the calls to oust him. On Friday, the military blamed terrorists for an attack a day earlier in Homs, saying six elite pilots and four technical officers were killed in an ambush. “The general command of the armed forces sees that enemies of the country are behind this terrorist act,” the military said. “The armed forces will continue to carry out its mission ... and will cut every evil hand that targets Syrian blood.” Although many Syrians resent police and intelligence agencies that they blame for oppressing the uprising, they respect the armed forces, which is seen as a bulwark against Israel. Unlike the armies of Tunisia and Egypt, Syria’s military has stood fiercely by the country’s leader as Assad faces down an extraordinary protest movement. In the past 40 years, Assad and his father before him stacked key military posts with
number of students they lure to the United States. College administrators who rely on recruiters are quick to defend them, saying they are more familiar with overseas customs and school systems. By using recruiters, Missouri State University leaders “can focus on developing and delivering curriculum instead of going out and recruiting students and developing individual sponsors,” said David Meinert, associate dean of the university’s business school. Recruiters are “able to deliver as an intermediary something that we would have trouble delivering.”

went over their strategy: Each would take one floor. “Finances have been tough — things are getting more expensive,” said Ayala, a receptionist in New York. She has two daughters, ages 2 and 4, as well as nieces and nephews, and had saved about $220 for the shopping trip. “But with Black Friday, things are a lot more affordable.” Keith Harris, an IT consultant in Raleigh, N.C., also leaves his family dinner early on Thanksgiving to prepare for Black Friday. Just after 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, as he speeds his Ford pickup to the nearest Wal-Mart, he doesn’t have time to wonder if Christmas has gotten overcommercialized.
(Continued from page 1) being, FBI spokesman Harry Trombitas said Friday in an email. One was Heather Tuttle, of Ravenna, who applied for the job Oct. 7 but never got a response. She had forgotten about the posting until an FBI agent called and left a message for her Monday. When she called back, she was stunned at what the agent told her. “It could have been me,” said Tuttle, 27, who has since taken work as an assistant manager at a gas station. “When the situation was explained to me, it just instantly made me sick and made me realize how lucky I am that I didn’t get a response back,” she said. Another man who responded to the ad has said he met Beasley at a food court at a different mall in the Akron area on Oct. 10. Ron Sanson, of Stow, was told the man was looking for an older, single
members of their minority Alawite sect — an offshoot of Shiite Islam — ensuring the loyalty of the armed forces by melding the fate of the army and the regime. Syria is overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim. “Many regime supporters are terrified about their future and thus liable to resist till the bitter end,” the Brussels-based ICG said in its report. “A majority of Alawite officials, security officers and ordinary citizens, along with segments of the Christian community and some secularists, have become convinced that their fate is either to kill or be killed.” It is not clear who was behind Thursday’s attacks. It’s impossible to verify events on the ground because Syria has banned foreign journalists and prevented independent reporting. Syria is the scene of the deadliest crackdown against the Arab Spring’s eruption of protests, with the U.N. reporting more than 3,500 people killed in eight months. International pressure has been mounting on Assad to stop the killing.
The adjustment in the Obama administration’s approach is significant because the Egyptian military, the nation’s most powerful institution, has in the past 30 years forged close relations with successive U.S. administrations, receiving $1.3 billion annually in aid. It followed the public U.S. endorsement of the military’s original timetable for the transfer of power by late 2012 or early 2013. The choice of el-Ganzouri, who served as prime minister under Mubarak between 1996 and 1999, deepened the anger of the protesters, already seething over the military’s perceived reluctance to dismantle the legacy of the ousted president’s 29-year rule. Hundreds of protesters moved from Tahrir Square and began a sit-in outside the headquarters of the Cabinet, a few blocks away, vowing to prevent el-Ganzouri from entering. “The military council must go,” the crowd chanted, “Military men must not rule.” The protest movement launched an attempt to unify its demands and present an alternative to el-Ganzouri. Twentyfour protest groups, including two political parties, announced they were creating their own “national salvation” government. They said it would be headed by a presidential council led by Nobel Peace laureate Mohamed ElBaradei with deputies from across the political spectrum to which they demanded the military hand over power. “El-Ganzouri is over and done with. We want young people to take charge of the country,” said Hamdi Arban, a 50-year-old lawyer in Tahrir Square. “We will stay here and we won’t get our rights except from here,” he said.
or divorced person to watch over a 688-acre farm in southeast Ohio — the kind of man, Sanson said, whose disappearance might not be quickly noticed. Sanson and Kern are both divorced. So was Pauley. Sanson, 58, said he filled out an application and talked for about 20 minutes with Beasley about a $300-a-week job overseeing a swath of land a mile from the nearest neighbor and living rent-free in a two-bedroom trailer with opportunities to hunt and fish and free access to ATVs and snowmobiles. The farm advertised on Craigslist does not exist; the area where the bodies were found in Noble County is property owned by a coal company and often leased to hunters.
