Patrol fires sergeant for lies, poor conduct
By ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor VAN WERT — Less than three months after receiving a complaint about an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper, the 18-year veteran was fired. Sgt. Jeffrey Hauenstein was found to have committed conduct unbecoming of an officer and to have made false statements during the investigation into a sexual encounter during his paid meal break. The investigation report, consisting of well over 100 pages of statements, phone and Facebook records, show that Hauenstein was accused of the encounter and denied it. Later, when confronted with evidence, he admitted to the rendezvous at his house during his lunch period. The investigation reveals a relationship between Hauenstein and Megan Price, an employee at the Van Wert Municipal Court. Price’s estranged husband anonymously contacted the Findlay Post on Sept. 23, 2011, to complain about a trooper having an affair with his wife that included on-duty meetings. He and his wife had been separated since July 12 and divorce proceedings had begun but the couple were still legally married. Both Hauenstein and Price admitted to having a relationship as “significant other” during the course of the investigation. An e-mailed complaint letter made several accusations, including that Hauenstein and Price’s wife had been in contact frequently by phone, text and through Facebook while Hauenstein was on duty. Over one stretch of 17 days, Price sent Hauenstein 135 text messages and he sent her 122. Hauenstein admitted he typed and sent some of them while driving home the sergeant making threats to the husband. A copy of a message sent Aug. 16 from Hauenstein to Price’s husband reads: “It is what it is, time to come to terms. As far as me, I don’t want you texting me, calling me or coming onto my property. This is your warning, don’t give me a reason to see you on Monday in court. We can do this 2 ways, hopefully you’ll chose the smarter and think of the big picture and not make me have you arrested or arrest you myself.” An Oct. 1, message from Hauenstein threatened to have a deputy seize the man’s computer and talking to the county prosecutor. The investigation states that Hauenstein had originally denied threatening to arrest the complainant personally. “Then, when confronted with the text message verbiage,

Delphos, Ohio he explained the threat away by saying he was referring to possible felony assault,” the report states. “Hauenstein did state that to his knowledge, the complainant has never been on his property or at this residence.” On Dec. 13, Hauenstein was placed on administrative leave by the highway patrol. That action came less than ten weeks after the first interview about the complaint. According to the investigation, the relationship began early in 2011 while Hauenstein was assigned to Van Wert Municipal Court, where Price works. The report shows Hauenstein had told Lt. Ray Haas about the relationship, but Haas did not know there was any improper behavior taking place during work hours. Haas did tell Hauenstein he should not have a relationship with Price until her divorce was final.

Operations at American Association of University Women: helping women succeed for more than 130 years water plant
By BRITTANY FULLENKAMP Times Bulletin reporter VAN WERT — Every day, a growing number of young women are seeking higher levels of education to help better the world surrounding them. One national organization has been helping young women succeed for over 130 years. The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a network of members, donors, branches and universities that stretches across the country. The different branches work to break through educational and economic barriers to provide an equal working environment for women. Van Wert County is fortunate enough to have its own branch and Branch President Deb Kleinhenz and Ruth Brickner are two of its advocates helping local girls and women succeed. Kleinhenz grew up in Richmond, Indiana, went on to the University of Dayton for her undergraduate work and eventually earned a master’s degree from Indiana University-Purdue University-Fort Wayne. In 1977, she obtained her first teaching job with the Van Wert City Schools system and spent 33 years as a kindergarten/first-grade teacher. It was through education that she also became aware of AAUW. “I taught for a couple of years and then was approached by someone who was a branch member. I attended a meeting as a guest and my interest was piqued,” Kleinhenz explains. “Here was this group that could help women to further their education and also make it more notable that there are still things that aren’t equal, like pay, for example. I looked

from Columbus. Much of the investigation focused on an Aug. 25 meeting between Hauenstein and Price, as well as messages sent afterward suggesting a sexual encounter. Both parties eventually admitted that the messages appeared to indicate such an encounter had happened. Another accusation was of

Council to consider electric aggregation proposal
BY MIKE FORD mford@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Tuesday’s city council meeting will include a proposal Safety Service Director Greg Berquist has been working on. Since voters approved an electric aggregation measure on the November ballot, his plan has been written and will be considered by the governing body. “Right now, the plan is in front of city council for its approval. I asked to have it read on Tuesday and they can pass it then or read it three times. It’s up to them. After council passes an ordinance approving the plan, it will go to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio for its review and approval to certify the city as an aggregate. Then, letters will go out to residents,” Berquist said. Those who are on a PIP plan already receive a discounted rate and do not qualify for aggregation. Other residents will need to notify the city if one does not want to participate. “The letter will include a portion to detach at the bottom that, basically, says ‘I choose to opt out.’ If you do nothing, you’ll automatically be opted in,” he said. Berquist also said some businesses can participate. “Businesses can be included if they’re small; like most of the ones downtown, for example, will probably qualify. It depends on their usage. Where residents get 11 percent, small businesses get 8 percent,” he said. Diane Francis of First Energy Solutions said most businesses will qualify; the stipulations are that the company have a “GS” tariff code for general service, use less than 700,000 kilowatt hours

currently 20 members in a wide variety of fields from lawyers to medical professionals to educators and they are all working together to reach young women and help them succeed in the future. The local AAUW branch does this by partnering with schools and other organizations like the Girl Scouts. Their main focus is with middle-school-aged girls. “For at least 20 years, we have done two main things for middle-school girls,” Kleinhenz explains. “One of them is our camps program where we, along with some support from the Van Wert County Foundation, send girls to a math and science camp. One of those camps is the Be WISE Day Camp, which is part of AAUW of Ohio sponsorship. The second is the GEMS camp, which is part of Ohio Northern University See AAUW, page 3

Berquist indicated businesses and residents should gather all the information they can. “Everybody needs to be informed and make their own decisions. We think this is a good opportunity; it won’t save a huge amount of money but it will save a couple bucks and, with the economy the way it is, a couple bucks is a couple of bucks,” he concluded.

DELPHOS — As city departments embark on a new calendar, the Water Department looks back on a year of algae control at the site of the community’s water supply. “We applied copper sulfate to the reservoir three times this year for algae control. The water department was evaluated by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency twice this year on Feb. 16 and Dec. 9. Twenty lead and copper samples were taken from various residences between June 1 and Sept. 30 and analyzed,” Water Superintendent Tim Williams said. “The city’s lead and copper samples were all within the acceptable 90th percentile compliance level set by the EPA. Various compliance water samples were taken throughout the year and analyzed at a certified lab; results were reported to OEPA.” From the Delphos-Gilmore Reservoir, local residents used a sizeable amount of water. A large portion of it was needed when the swimming pool was filled for the summer. “We supplied the city with 373,672,000 gallons of water. The most water treated was on May 18; we supplied 1,329,204 gallons of water to the city that day. We were able to pump out of the Little Auglaize River into the reservoir all year because of the rain we had this year,” he said. Williams also worked with the electric company to enhance the upground facility. “We had American Electric Power install more lightningsuppression devices on the high- power lines out at the reservoir. A Utility Service inspector inspected the north water tower and reported that it is still in good shape,” he said. The department also performed maintenance tasks on its equipment. “Forty thousand pounds of activated carbon was taken from the carbon contactors at the plant and reactivated and returned in November. The Granulated Activated Carbons dissolve organics such as pieces of leaves in the water. When it mixes with chlorine, it can create a carcinogens, so we take it out of the contactors, which are just tanks that allow the water to come in contact with the GAC,” Williams said. “The water department also monitored the pressure testing and bacteria testing of the new water line installed at Unverferth Manufacturing and the new senior living complex. We cleaned out 70 feet of 14-inch water line that goes between the sedimentation basins and the clarifiers. Leak detectors were here in June and surveyed 30 miles of pipe for leaks.”

Ohio ROTC cadet who lost leg aims to be pilot
ATHENS (AP) — An Ohio ROTC cadet is pursuing his goal of becoming an Air Force pilot, despite losing his right leg in a parachutetraining accident 18 months ago at the Air Force Academy in Colorado. Matt Pirrello, of Centerville, intends to show the Air Force that he has the physical ability and leadership skills to serve, The Columbus Dispatch reported (http://bit. ly/rLhwzl ). Pirrello, 21, joined the Air Force ROTC in 2009. The sophomore business-economics major has returned to Ohio University in Athens but knows he faces challenges in earning an Air Force commission. “If you’re in the Air Force when you’re hurt, it’s a matter of retention,” he said. “If you’re not in the Air Force, it’s a matter of whether they will accept you despite your injuries.” Others have flown with prosthetic legs after they were in the service, but most have been below-the-knee amputees who can push the rudder pedal on a plane more or less normally and reposition their feet to get to the brake without too much trouble. Pirrello lost his right leg about mid-thigh. Military pilots also must pass courses showing that they could evade capture and survive after ejecting over land and water, and Pirrello must win an exception to Air Force policy. He and his ROTC commander plan to file the paperwork soon, though he probably won’t learn the decision until summer. Pirrello was injured during a basic training course in parachuting. The first jump went smoothly, but high winds swept him off course the second time, according to the accident-investigation report. Turbulence slammed him into a pole, severing his right leg. He also broke his left leg and tore a biceps at one shoulder. The Air Force investigation concluded Pirrello was so focused on his target that he forgot to monitor windsocks that would have shown crosswinds. But he and several witnesses think it was just a freak accident caused by turbulence. He went through 10 surgeries, unexpected setbacks and more than a year of rehabilita-

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio gas prices are about 28 cents higher than a year ago as 2012 gets under way. Today’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express put the statewide average price for regular gasoline at $3.40 per gallon, up 2 cents from last week. Last year at this time regular was averaging about $3.12 at pumps around Ohio. Global tensions have been putting pressure on fuel prices. Crude oil traded above $100 a barrel last week amid growing trader concern that friction between Iran and Western powers could disrupt Middle East oil supplies. However, some analysts expect that a slowing global economy led by a likely recession in Europe will help pull down oil prices.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Former U.S. senator and astronaut John Glenn says he believes an “unattractive” elections process discourages the best people from pursuing public service The 90-year-old Democrat is optimistic that good people will run for office but understands some might shy from opening their lives to intense public scrutiny, he told The Columbus Dispatch in a wideranging interview published Sunday. “If you’re going to run for high public office now, it’s just a given that you’ve got to open up every bit of your financial information and your medical records,” said Glenn, who served 24 years in the Senate and retired in 1999. He said political fundraising was a tough part of the job. “I’d rather wrestle a gorilla right here on the floor than ask anybody for five bucks — make it a dollar,” he said. Glenn said if he were running for office today, he wouldn’t rule out new taxes to help balance the budget. He said he thinks President Barack Obama has done well despite facing many challenges when he took office but wishes the federal stimulus package that Obama supported had been larger.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The percentage of food stamp applications being processed on time is lower in the county that includes Cincinnati than anywhere else in Ohio, according to a newspaper analysis of data from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Hamilton County is among 23 counties that were asked to speed up their processing last year, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Sunday. It found just 45 percent of Hamilton County applications filed for November — the most recent totals available — were processed within 30 days as required, giving the county the worst record in processing for five straight months. The statewide average was 76 percent. The Enquirer determined the delays have affected thousands of families since the summer, when attorneys from the Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati contacted Job and Family Services about the problem. “We had moms calling us that had no food for their children,” said Regina Campbell, a Legal Aid managing attorney. “Literally, they had a box of cereal in the cupboard, and that’s all they

Ohio county told to speed up food stamp processing
had.” Hamilton County Job and Family Services officials say state and federal funding cuts caused layoffs that led to the delays, and they’re making changes to speed things up. The agency was handling increased applications but had lost nearly four dozen public assistance workers since 2009, spokesman Brian Gregg said. Another contributing factor was a statewide change that let existing clients reapply for all their benefits simultaneously, he said. It left caseworkers behind schedule and clients waiting in line or battling overloaded phone systems. Among them was nurse aide Louise Harris of College Hill, who lost her full-time job in July. Harris, 58, said she struggled to get by, prioritizing her rent and utility payments before groceries, and in September she dropped off her application for food stamps at the Job and Family Services building. When she called to check on it in October, she said, she was told it must have been lost. She reapplied and kept calling, reaching

Alejandro Cantu, commander of the Air Force ROTC detachment at Ohio University. Pirrello said he gained perspective while staying at a military medical center with others who had endured more severe injuries, such as brain trauma or losing multiple limbs. “No matter how bad my setbacks were, I had to put it in perspective,” he said. The Air Force covered the costs of his four prosthetics, valued at about $100,000, and paid his medical bills, estimated at $650,000. Ohio Congressman Mike Turner, a Centerville Republican, lobbied to get him Veterans Affairs benefits after he left the center. “It is incredible how much Matt has excelled with such an incredible injury,” Turner said. If he can’t be a pilot, Pirrello said he would like to command unoccupied aircraft or do intelligence work.

mostly recorded messages. When Harris finally spoke to someone at the agency last month, she refused to back down and eventually received her approval for food stamps, she said. “She told me she’s not my caseworker anymore,” Harris said. “I told her, ‘I’m not hanging up. I need to know something. I am still hungry.”’ State officials have ordered Hamilton County JFS to create an improvement plan, citing flaws such as slow application processing and improper denials. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services wants counties to process 90 percent of requests on time but doesn’t issue financial penalties for shortfalls because it would only hurt the needy, spokesman Ben Johnson, told the newspaper. The county agency is hiring 25 people to process applications, training 34 current staff workers to help out and paying overtime to help clear the backlog, its spokesman said. “We still have a hole to dig out of,” Gregg told the newspaper, “but we believe we are on the right track.”

Unclaimed funds agency now 30 years old

COLUMBUS (AP) — An agency is marking 30 years of reuniting Ohioans with money they didn’t know they had. The Ohio Department of Commerce says its Division of Unclaimed Funds has put forgotten money into the hands of hundreds of thousands of people since it was created in January 1982. Officials had said last fall that the division was paying out 40 percent more in claims than it had a year earlier. Commerce Director David Goodman planned to give an update at a news conference scheduled for Monday morning. Unclaimed funds held by the state include uncollected rent or utility deposits, forgotten bank deposits and uncashed insurance policies.

and the Lima AAUW branch. Giving those two or more scholarships per year is something we’re pretty proud of.” The second main program AAUW provides for the girls is a mentoring program called Sister to Sister. This year, the program will take place on Saturday, March 10. “For Sister to Sister, we invite middle-school girls sixth-, seventh- and eighthgraders - from our whole county to a day where we offer little snippets of things we think they should be interested in, like their personal health, physical fitness, ways of de-stressing their lives and career opportunities. We have speakers and the girls just come and they listen. It’s all free!” Kleinhenz exclaims. “They just register and come and hopefully leave a little more empowered with some kind of information that they can put into practice right away to better help their life and achieve what they want to achieve.” AAUW worked with the YWCA’s Summer Food Program last year to help the Girl Scouts present a program on cyber-bullying and peace and friendship with younger kids. They also bring in election candidates to speak at

meetings to make the members more voter-aware and ready. AAUW is a sponsor of Jenna Bush Hager, who will speak at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, Jan. 24. On a national level, AAUW has done ground-breaking research for sexual harassment in education as well as other arenas, even taking a role with the recent suit against WalMart. AAUW also funded a landmark study about how educators treat each gender in the classroom. The study found that teachers would subconsciously ask different levels of questions or focus a presentation more towards one gender or the other. “The study made educators look at themselves and say ‘Oh my gosh, we’re shortchanging our female students’!” Brickner explains. Currently, AAUW of Ohio is working to combat trafficking. “Right now, one of the big things for AAUW of Ohio is trafficking for either labor or sexual reasons. Even though we don’t see it locally here, it’s a big issue just down the road in Toledo,” Kleinhenz says. “They’re like the fourthlargest city with instances and it makes you wonder why. Why would that be? Well, it’s because of all of the roads

leading into the city. Ohio New Clients only has laws that are a little more lenient about controlling that off color kind of thing which is someoff hair cut thing that AAUW is trying to address with our lawmakers.” Meetings at AAUW occur once a month and usually feature a speaker from another 3000 Elida Rd.

“Love me when I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it.” — Swedish proverb

Rep. Giffords leads shooting remembrance
By AMANDA LEE MYERS Associated Press TUCSON, Ariz. — After a year of struggling to re-learn how to walk and speak, U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords confidently climbed the steps on an outdoor stage on Sunday and led a crowd of hundreds in the Pledge of Allegiance, her words ringing out on a cold Tucson night just one year after she survived a gunshot to the head. The remembrance at the University of Arizona culminated a day of events, some filled with sadness and regret, others with hope and joy. Many wept at an afternoon event as two 10-year-olds remembered their best friend, Christina-Taylor Green, who was killed in the Jan. 8, 2011 shooting, along with five others. Some danced in celebration after Giffords’ husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, told the crowd at the candlelight vigil that the 13 survivors who emerged from the shooting showed that “alongside human frailty there is also strength.” And they chanted — “Gabby! Gabby! — when Giffords limped to the podium, and, after months of intensive speech therapy, recited the pledge with the audience, head held high and a smile on her face as she punched each word. “ ... with LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL!” the Democratic congresswoman shouted, almost defiantly. The day included a church service that drew hundreds in the afternoon and a citywide bell-ringing at 10:11 a.m., the exact time a gunman started shooting at a Safeway political event on Jan. 8, 2011. Suzi Hileman, who took her young friend and neighbor, 9-year-old Christina-Taylor Green, to meet Giffords that day, took the stage at the vigil and hugged Giffords, walking to the candle area, lighting one of 19 candles for those killed and wounded, and mouthing “thank you” to the crowd. Ron Barber, a Giffords staffer who was shot twice, helped lead events throughout the day, including the vigil. He woke up Sunday dreaming about Giffords, who was severely wounded, and Giffords staffer Gabe Zimmerman, who died. “You have to think about the six people whose loved ones don’t have them today,” Barber said. And Giffords, 41, who unexpectedly spoke Sunday after spending the past year in Houston undergoing intensive physical and speech therapy in a recovery doctors and family

One Year Ago • Older residents will soon have a new housing option if one welcomes the notion of downsizing. Delphos Senior Villas is being developed to offer those 55 and older a lowermaintenance alternative. Near the corner of Elida Road and Fifth Street, each 900-square-foot home will include a 1 ½-car garage. The complex will include a 2,600-foot community building and a shelter on 18 acres. 25 Years Ago — 1987 • A Fort Wayne man was arraigned in Lima Municipal Court on charges stemming from a two-hour standoff Wednesday evening at the Elida branch of the Commercial Bank of Delphos in which five bank employees were taken hostage. The standoff ended at about 7 p.m. Wednesday when the man was persuaded to surrender after authorities promised he could speak with his wife once he was in custody at the Allen County Jail. • Delphos Future Farmers of America is sponsoring a Dyno Day Jan. 21 at Jefferson Senior High School. All tractor owners in the community are urged to bring their tractors to test for problems that could be repaired before the spring planting season. The fee is $10 for tractors with 100 horsepower or less and $15 for tractors with more than 100 horsepower. • Students of the first grade class of Mary Fett at Columbus Grove are Carrie Barrientes, Trudy Halker, Theresa Trehan, Kerri Hughes, Chris Bessette, Zach Wilkins, Scott Moore, Todd Binkley, Jeff Gilbert, Benny Camareno and Tom Bogart. 50 Years Ago — 1962 • A frigid second quarter and a pair of red hot Redskins teamed up to spell defeat for the Delphos St. John’s Blue Jays in their game Saturday night here with the Wapakoneta Blume cage club. Wapak’s Tom Cornell and Ed Helmlinger hit with almost uncanny accuracy for a total of 47 of the Redskins’ 64 points. • Two trustees were elected at the meeting of the Walnut Grove Cemetery Association at the annual meeting of the lot holders held Jan. 6.

IT WAS NEWS THEN

Air show safety faces scrutiny

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite suffering severe injuries in the worst air race accident in the U.S. in more than a half a century, some victims have told their lawyer they would like to attend future races. “I just look at them, shake my head and say, ‘You are absolutely nuts,”’ said Houston attorney Tony Buzbee, who represents 16 injured victims and families of people killed at an air race in Reno, Nev., in September. Eleven people died and about 70 more were badly injured after a souped-up World War II-era warbird crashed in front of VIP boxes, sending shrapnel into the crowd. That some victims would still support such events and return to them underscores the powerful fascination of air shows and races, which are built around pilots and performers engaged in extreme risk-taking. More than 10 million people attend U.S. air shows every year. But what level of risk is acceptable for both the public and the pilots? And can safety improvements be made to reduce that risk while still permitting daredevil performances? The National Transportation Safety Board is holding a hearing Tuesday to help answer those questions. The hearing is separate from the board’s investigation of the Reno accident. Officials for the Reno Air Racing Association, which sponsors the races, are scheduled to testify. Since 1986, there have been 152 air show and air race accidents in the U.S., including 75 fatal ones, according to the board. But, except for the Reno race, none involved spectator deaths. “When it comes to spectator fatalities, their record is very good in the United States,” said the board’s head, Deborah Hersman. “But any fatalities lead us to question how we can improve.” Industry officials draw a sharp distinction between the Reno air races and the other nearly 350 air shows held around the country each year. The Reno races are the only ones of their type held anywhere in the world. A group of planes flies wingtip-to-wingtip as low as 50 feet off the sagebrush at speeds sometimes surpassing 500 mph. Pilots follow an oval path around pylons, with distances and speeds depending on the class of aircraft. “We’re just like NASCAR in the sky,” said race spokeswoman Valerie Miller. The Red Bull Air Race World Championships, the only other air race series, was canceled for this year and next year before the Reno accident. Those races are significantly different from the Reno races, with one plane at a time flying a course around pylons vying to achieve the best time. Critics of the Reno air races contend they are more dangerous than the typical air show where aerobatic stunts are performed. Air show regulations require planes to follow a course parallel to the grandstands so that the direction and energy of the planes is never pointed directly at the crowd. In the air races, they say, there is a point, usually just before the home stretch, when planes briefly turn in the direction of spectators.

Super PACs buy time to keep secrets
By JACK GILLUM Associated Press WASHINGTON — Independent political groups backing top Republican candidates are taking advantage of federal rules that essentially lets them shield the identities of their donors until after important primary elections this month. These political action committees, known as super PACs, notified federal election regulators in recent weeks that they intend to file their financial reports every month. Those requests, once approved, effectively will allow the groups to hold off disclosing the names of their contributors until after primaries in New Hampshire on Tuesday and South Carolina on Jan. 21. Without the change, those groups would have had to file reports before the GOP primaries. That would have given voters a clearer picture of the wealthy activists who could have over-sized influence in the GOP race and the general election. Just this past week, a new political committee supporting former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum made a similar request to the Federal Election Commission. It would delay the next filing deadline to Jan. 31 for the group, called the Red, White By STEVE PEOPLES Associated Press and Blue Fund. That’s the date of the Florida primary, after which candidates with little money will find it hard to continue the race. Groups backing GOP candidates Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman also have said they would begin filing monthly reports, which they said eases administrative burdens. Before then, these PACs filed reports quarterly, a practice they said required submitting tedious reports before each state’s primary. Democratic-leaning super PACs have not yet asked for similar extensions. The subtle administrative change is significant because such groups are expected to play a crucial role in this year’s election. In one case, the Romneyleaning Restore Our Future ran a series of attack ads against Gingrich that have been widely cited as a reason for the former House speaker’s plummeting support. Gingrich placed fourth in the Iowa caucuses behind Romney, Santorum and Texas Rep. Ron Paul. “It is secret money — you won’t know until after the primaries have occurred who helped fund them,” said Trevor Potter, a former Republican FEC commissioner and president of the watchdog group Campaign Legal Center. “Whether of South Carolina to trumpet the endorsement of former Republican presidential candidate Gary Bauer. “I’ve still got a little blood on my sleeve from Mitt Romney from that debate,” the former Pennsylvania senator told 400 people crammed into Chief’s sports bar in Greenville, S.C. “We’re not going to shy away where there are differences.” He also alluded to Romney’s position switches on a series of issues, saying: “We’ve got a lot of candidates that just adapt to whatever the environment is .... I don’t, because the truth doesn’t change.” Looking to revive his flagging candidacy, Perry also swooped into the Southern state. The Texas governor told roughly 300 people at a packed burger joint in Spartanburg, S.C., that his campaign, after a disappointing finish in the Iowa caucuses, was like the last stand at the Alamo. He also assailed Romney, casting him as an insider and arguing: “We’ve got to have somebody that is an outsider that is not interested in tinkering around the edges — but that will go into Washington, D.C., and overhaul that place.” Back in New Hampshire,

have called miraculous. “You made us so proud and happy when just months after your injury, you were in Congress casting your vote,” said Dr. Peter Rhee, who treated Giffords at the hospital after she was shot. “We’re so looking forward to having you back.” Doctors have said it would take many months to determine the lasting effects of her brain injury. The threeterm congresswoman has four months to decide whether to seek re-election. On Sunday, she smiled and nodded during the service, but didn’t clap her hands. She walked with assistance, under the watchful eye of Kelly. Giffords and Kelly lit a candle together, and she rose to hug survivor Pam Simon. “Even though it’s a hard weekend for her and all of us, she wanted to be here with her community to remember,” said Barber, who spent time with Giffords throughout the weekend. “She’s sad, we’re all sad, and she’s glad to be home.” Jared Lee Loughner has pleaded not guilty to 49 charges in the shooting. The 23-year-old, who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, is being forcibly medicated at a Missouri prison facility in an effort to make him mentally ready for trial.

Rivals target Romney 2 days before NH primary
CONCORD, N.H. — Mitt Romney’s Republican presidential rivals piled on the criticism Sunday, two days before New Hampshire’s primary, with a combative Newt Gingrich leading the aggression by accusing the GOP front-runner of “pious baloney” and charging him with hiding behind inaccurate attack ads aired by allies. In the increasingly acerbic nomination fight, Romney fired back at Gingrich during a morning debate: “This ain’t beanbag ... we’re going to describe the differences between us.” By evening, he also had taken shots from Rick Santorum, Jon Huntsman and Rick Perry. With time running short to curtail Romney here and perhaps elsewhere, his opponents started the day assailing him on the debate stage and ended it by doing the same in appearances across New Hampshire and South Carolina as they worked to appeal to the chunk of Republican voters unenthused with the idea of the former Massachusetts governor as the party’s nominee. Santorum made a beeline to the conservative upstate

they’re doing this for the right or wrong reasons, it’s the opposite of what the disclosure system was designed to do.” Robert Kelner, a campaign-finance expert and partner with the Washington law firm Covington & Burling, noted that once the FEC approves the requests, the groups eventually will file disclosure reports more frequently. “It’s sort of in the eye of the beholder if that’s improving or undermining disclosure,” he said. The FEC has already approved requests from Restore Our Future and Huntsman-leaning Our Destiny PAC. The new super PACs sprung from a series of federal court rulings, including the Supreme Court’s Citizens United case in 2010 that stripped away restrictions on corporate and union spending in elections. The groups can’t coordinate directly with campaigns but many of them active in this election are staffed by longtime supporters of the candidates. As a result, campaignfinance watchdogs have assailed the rulings as a dangerous return to the preWatergate era. The filing changes also have the effect, they say, of shielding donors until dates when many candidates might likely drop out. Gingrich assailed Romney as a “Massachusetts moderate” and promoted a video being released by his allies that attacks Romney’s business career. The Gingrich-leaning Winning Our Future PAC said Sunday that a 28-minute online video — which assails Romney for “reaping massive awards” while head of Bain Capital — may show up on TV in the coming weeks. “To quote the governor, you have to have broad shoulders and you have to be able to take the heat to be in the kitchen,” Gingrich said after an afternoon town-hall style appearance at Manchester restaurant. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, won the Iowa caucuses last Tuesday by a scant eight votes over Santorum but is so far ahead in New Hampshire polls that his rivals have virtually conceded he will win. South Carolina comes next, on Jan. 21, the first Southern state to hold a primary. While it is the contest where Gingrich, Santorum and the rest of Romney’s rivals face an urgent need to slow his candidacy, Romney pointedly noted that he has been endorsed by that state’s governor, Nikki Haley.

---Elida boys win showdown versus Eagles ELIDA — Reggie McAdams and Cory Royster formed a nice 1-2 punch for Elida, scoring 15 and 10 points, respectively, as the host Bulldogs grabbed a In 1950, the Cleveland Browns won the NFL championship 48-35 non-conference showby defeating the Los Angeles Rams, 30-28, when Lou Groza down with Liberty-Benton Saturday night on the Union kicked a field goal with 20 seconds left.

LIMA — St. John’s and Lima Central Catholic have put together a long and storied boys basketball archrivalry over the last half-century-plus. Sunday afternoon’s installment at Msgr. E.C. Herr Buescher Gymnasium added to that legacy. It came down to a 15-9 third period that gave the host Thunderbirds enough of a cushion to put up a 64-56 non-league victory, their 37th in the 82-game series. After a 26-26 halftime tie, the Thunderbirds (8-1) upped the defensive pressure in their man-toman, whether full- or half-court. They turned the Blue Jays (4-4) over 5 times (16 for the game; 9 of their own), Bockey leading to easy opportunities at the basket on the other end. They took the lead for good at the 5:45 mark when senior Billy Taflinger (a strong all-around game with 18 markers, 7 boards, 5 steals, 2 assists) hit a basket for a 32-31 edge. The hosts held their biggest lead to date at 41-33 on two tosses from sophomore Bruce Hodges (9 counters) at 1:16 but the Jays garnered a pair of free throws by junior Seth Bockey (10 markers) with 57 ticks to go for a 41-35 scoreboard. “Their athleticism was one key. We knew about it going in but they are so athletic and deep; that took its toll, especially in the third quarter,” St. John’s coach Aaron Elwer noted. “For the most part, we handled that and their pressure. We just didn’t in the third period. What you can’t do against a talented team like this is give them easy shots in transition and we did that. Plus, they hurt us on second and third shots; they just kept attacking.” As expected in this series — with very few one-sided contests — no one was going to run away with it. The Jays battled back within 44-42 on a drive down the lane from senior Ben Warnecke at 5:10. However, LCC had the reply: an 8-0 spurt fueled by a basket from Taflinger, two singles by senior John Kidd, another Taflinger hoop and a deuce by sophomore Martyce Kimbrough (13 counters); to assume a 52-42 edge with 2:40 remaining. The Jays were not done yet, using a 14-8 span — 3-balls by junior Andrew Metzger, senior Tanner Calvelage and senior Alex Clark, around a 3-point play by junior Ryan Buescher (14 counters, 6 boards, 5 assists), and Clark’s two throws at 27.8 seconds for a 60-56 score. However, Kimbrough hit all four singles in the final 27 ticks to seal the deal. “I felt we started playing defense more in line with our concepts: we weren’t gambling, breaking down and giving up back-door cuts. We never do that,” LCC coach Frank Kill explained. “Our number 1 goal today was play smart defense and we didn’t the first half. We did the second. Plus, we got more into transition because of our defense. We made sure we didn’t give (Curtis) Geise and Clark open 3s; we wanted to make sure other guys beat us.” Both teams were looking to push the tempo and run an

up-tempo offense and both had a lot of success against the other’s man-to-man defense. There were eight lead changes in the first eight minutes — along with six ties. The Jays had five players score — 5 points each from Buescher and Geise (11 counters) — and LCC six — five from Geise Johnson — as the visitors took a 17-16 edge on a triple from the right wing by Metzger with 42 ticks showing. The teams combined for 12-of-24 shooting in the period. There were as many lead changes in the second canto — three — but there were four more ties. When Bockey (10 points) tipped in a miss with 7.1 seconds showing, that knotted the score at 26. St. John’s finished 20-of44 shooting (7-of-23 from 3-land) for 45.5 percent and 9-of-10 charity tosses (90%). They grabbed 28 caroms (6 offensive) as Clark added five. They added 18 fouls and will host St. Henry Friday. “We knew how talented and skilled LCC was coming in. We played pretty well for the first half,” Elwer added. “For the second game in a row, we didn’t have a good third period. I’m not sure why we didn’t play with the same sense of urgency we did the first half — LCC did and even more so — but we have to get back to how we played the first six games of the season.” Lima Central Catholic canned 21-of-49 shots (3-of10 downtown) for 42.9 percent and 18-of-25 singles (72%). They owned 30 boards (11 offensive) as senior Tyler O’Connor added six. They totaled 13 fouls and host Jefferson Friday. “Billy is one of our seniors and what he did today is what you expect out of seniors,” Kill added. “We got a lot of good plays out of our bench today: Martyce scored 13 and Darius (West) also gave us a big lift.” In reserve action, the Jays (3-5) grabbed the lead with 34 ticks left in overtime on a 3-ball by sophomore Ryan Koester (16 markers; 5 triples) and a layup as time expired by classmate Ben Wrasman to grab a 49-46 victory. Sophomore Eric Clark (3 treys) and freshman Tyler Conley added 13 for the Blue and Gold. Sophomore Colin Stolly (4 bombs) led the Thunderbirds (6-3) with 16.

COLUMBUS GROVE – Ottoville and Columbus Grove were involved in a tight, lowscoring girls basketball game midway through the second quarter of their Putnam County League contest Saturday. That’s when the Big Green decided enough was enough. Ottoville scored the final 10 points of the second quarter to take a 16-point lead Kramer into halftime. The Big Green never looked back after that, they went on to record a 59-26 win over the Bulldogs. The win moved Ottoville to 11-0 on the season and 3-0 in the PCL. Columbus Grove dropped to 1-1 in the PCL and 4-5 overall. Ottoville had a 14-6 lead after the opening quarter scoring the final five points of the quarter on a 3-pointer by Lauren Kramer and a basket by Nicole Vorst. Kramer opened the second quarter scoring as she dropped in a 2-pointer that gave the Big Green a 10-point lead at 16-6. Columbus Grove pulled within six points as Katelyn Scott and Renee Karhoff dropped in baskets. A putback by the Big Green’s Megan Bendele and Grove’s Anna Ricker made the score 18-12. That’s when the Big Green’s defense went to work, shutting down the Bulldog offense for the remainder of the quarter while the Ottoville offense was extending its lead with a 10-0 run. Lauren Koch opened the run with a putback before Bendele hit two free throws and Rachel Turnwald came up with a steal and basket. Four free throws by Abby Siefker ended the second-quarter scoring as the Big Green were up 28-12 at the half. “I think we were in too much of a hurry to score right away off two passes when you have to work the ball and get some easy looks,” Ottoville coach Dave Kleman said. “Once we played better team ball, we got some easy looks and nice-looking shots. We are a good shooting team, so when we get good open looks, I like our chances.” “That seems to happen to us in big games like this,” Grove coach Chad Ricker said. “I don’t know what happens, if we lose focus or we get lazy on defense. They hit some shots and we go into a shell and say ‘here we go again.’ It’s a mentality we have to break. I think we are a talented team.

Ottoville 21-35 13-14 59: Turnwald 2-0-4; Bendele 2-2-6; Koch 3-0-7; Vorst 2-2-6; Kramer 5-0-13; Beining 4-1-9; Siefker 3-8-14. Columbus Grove 9-33 8-12 26: Ricker 2-5-9; Brubaker 0-0-0; Utendorf 0-0-0; Stechschulte 2-0-4; Karhoff 1-02; Halker 0-0-0; McCluer 2-3-7; Scott 0-0-0; Diller 0-0-0. Score by Quarters: Ottoville 14 14 19 12 – 59 Col. Grove 6 6 5 9 – 26 Three-point field goals: Ottoville 4-7 (Koch 1, Kramer 3); Columbus Grove 0-14. Rebounds: Ottoville 29 (Koch 7); Columbus Grove 14. Turnovers: Ottoville 14, Columbus Grove 11. Junior Varsity: Col. Grove 32-29.

That first quarter, we played with Ottoville and they are a great team.” Ottoville continued its run into the third quarter with baskets from Siefker and Turnwald before Ricker halted the streak at the 6:40 mark with a free throw. The Big Green ran off the next 10 points of the game to take a 42-13 lead. Kramer opened the run with back-to-back 3-pointers before Bendele dropped in a 2-pointer and Kramer scored again that forced the Bulldogs to take their second timeout of the quarter. “They (Grove) did a nice job. They did what they had to do,” Kleman added. “If you reverse the ball against that packed zone, you will get a lot of opportunities. Kramer does a nice job of shooting the ball and we do a good job of finding her. Koch, Abby and what a luxury we have in bringing people off the bench like Nicole, Rachel (Beining) and those guys. It’s a nice problem to have.” The Big Green ended the quarter with a 5-4 run as Beining scored all five of Ottoville’s points. Nikki Stechschulte ended an 11-minute Bulldog field-goal drought with a basket inside the final minute of the quarter. Ottoville closed the game with a 12-9 fourth-quarter scoring run with all of their starters on the bench after the opening minutes of the quarter. Siefker led the Big Green with 14 points and Kramer had 13 points. Beining finished with nine points, while Koch had seven points and seven rebounds. Ricker led the Bulldogs with nine points and Sydney McCluer had seven points. They were only 9-of-33 from the field in the game as they did not have a 3-pointer . “The first half, I felt we rushed some shots and they were able to get a hand on some shots,” Ricker ended. “The second and third quarters, we just had trouble getting shots to fall. I think most of our points came on free throws after we had a good first quarter scoring. It’s something we have to work on because we have a lot of games to play yet.” Ottoville visits Continental Thursday, while Grove hosts Paulding.

FORT JENNINGS — Connor Kohls set a new Columbus Grove boys basketball school record for 3-point field goals Saturday n i g h t against Fort Jennings, going 8-of11 from behind the Kohls arc as the Bulldogs picked up a 67-41 Putnam County League victory over host Fort Jennings. The Bulldogs improved to 7-2 overall (2-0 PCL) and the Musketeers fell to 2-7 (0-1). “Connor works extremely hard in the off-season and I don’t think he ever put a ball down after we got beat last season,” Columbus Grove coach Ryan Stechschulte said. “The work has been paying off and he has improved a lot and really has a lot of confidence in his shot.” Grove held Fort Jennings to just one field goal the first quarter, forcing eight turnovers for the Musketeers’ offense. Kohls went 3-of-4 to give Columbus Grove a 23-4 opening-quarter lead. Three more back-toback treys from Kohls gave Columbus Grove a 37-9 lead with 3:44 on the secondperiod clock. Two buckets from Jeremy Kohli and Kurt Warnecke for the Musketeers brought the deficit to 40-15 at the break. Fort Jennings started to see some spark in the third quarter with two baskets from Chad Recker but Kohls nailed another triple for a Bulldogs’ 46-23 lead with 6:10 on the clock. Caleb Grothaus hit

another 3-pointer at the buzzer for Columbus Grove as they took a 56-29 margin going into the fourth quarter. The Musketeers came within 20 with a 3-point play from Kurt Warnecke in the final stanza but no closer. Columbus Grove shot 22-of-44 from the floor, 11-of17 behind the arc, and committing just 10 turnovers. The Musketeers had 22 turnovers and shot 16-of-38 (3-of-9 trifectas) overall. “ O u r C. Warnecke defense is really stepping up and causing turnovers,” Stechshulte added. “I told the kids that it is really fun to play with the lead because teams have to play our style and catch up.” Kohls led all scorers with a record-high 28 points. Jordan Travis had eleven points. Cody Warnecke had a Musketeer team-high 17 points. Kurt Warnecke finished with 14 points.

LIMA — All one had to look at to figure out who won the Elida and Lima Senior girls basketball game Saturday afternoon was the turnover stat. The Lady Spartans’ fullcourt pressure forced 33 Lady Bulldog miscues (18 of their own) in rolling up a 62-31 nonleague victory. “We were going too fast. We cannot afford to get into an up-tempo game, especially against Lima Senior,” Elida coach Deb Stetler noted. “We weren’t doing the things we needed to, especially handling the basketball. We are still very much a work in progress there. Unfortunately, we’re halfway through the year.” The pressure started from the tap, with the Spartans (8-3) forcing 15 errors in the first period alone and limiting Elida (3-7) to a mere 1-of-5 fielders (13of-39 overall, 1-of-11 trios, for 33.3%) with 38 ticks left (junior Ericka Smith). Thanks to 6-of18 shooting by the Spartans (27of-67 overall, 1-of-10 downtown, for 40.3%), they could only lead 15-2. Senior didn’t force as many errors in the second period (5) but the offense picked up.

Senior Jazmine Thomas (9 caroms, 3 thefts) scored seven of her 12 markers in the stanza as they steadily erected a bigger lead. When Briana Griffin put in a deuce with 47 ticks showing, the halftime lead was 36-10. Elida’s offense continued to struggle in the third period, going the first four minutes without a score and committing nine mistakes in the canto. Elida junior Osha Owens did net eight of her game-high 14 points in the stanza but Mi’Chaen Williamson (3 steals) countered with six of her 11 for the hosts. Their lead reached as high as 54-18 on a drive by Airika Callahan (5 steals) at 1:22 but Owens (38 ticks) and Smith (7 counters) knocked in a transition basket with 4.6 ticks showing for a 54-22 deficit. The biggest margin of the fourth period — the largest of the night — was 37 as the benches emptied. “Lima Senior has so much size, speed and athleticism, plus they are deep. I think we were a little intimidated coming in; you could see it in the girls’ eyes before the game,” Stetler added. “Defensively and on the glass, we were just not focused. That is also a work in progress but those are things you have to have every night. You’re going

to have games you don’t score but you can control effort.” Elida’s finishing stats: 4-of-6 at the line (66.7%); 24 boards (8 offensive) as Smith had four; and 11 fouls. They host Fort Jennings Tuesday. Lima Senior ended with 7-of-13 free throws (53.8%); 43 rebounds (25 offensive) as Emilya Upthegrove nabbed 10 and Imara Haynes (3 steals) seven; and 14 fouls. Indiya Benjamin added 10 points and four assists. Elida hosts Findlay Thursday. “We set the tempo from the start of what we want the game to be; the faster the better. We came out ready to go,” Lima Senior coach Vince Halliday noted. “We hadn’t played well the last three games, so we talked about that in practice this week and before the game. The girls responded.” In junior varsity action, Lima Senior eked out a 46-45 victory. Courtney Smith led the Spartans with 13, while freshman Sabrina Kline countered with 18 (3 treys).

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, JANUARY 10, 2012 In coming months, recent successes will give you much more faith in yourself than you’ve had in the past. This new self-confidence will give you a boldness to do now what you feared to take on previously. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you lack the skill or knowledge to call the shots, let someone who seems to know what he or she is talking about guide you through the maze that you’re facing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Being open-handed is one of your greatest assets. Once others see that you’re not trying to put anything over on them, they’ll treat you with fairness and consideration. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Chances are you’re in a favorable trend right now where your work or career is concerned. Capitalize on it by performing the best that you can and your efforts will be acknowledged. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Unless you monitor your behavior, you could come off as either haughty or overly submissive. In either case, it won’t help your image with others or with yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Do not start something that you know you won’t or can’t finish. The only thing that’s likely to give you a sense of satisfaction is seeing something through to the end. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Have some appreciation for your unique ideas and then have the courage to try to bring them to fruition. If you effectively do what you conceive, everything else will fall into place. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -One of your more admirable qualities is your desire to cherish, protect and even spoil those you love. Your generosity toward others provides much joy for them and great pleasure for you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Assignments that might be tough for others will be a piece of cake for you, mostly because you’ll see them as a means to express your abilities and love of showmanship. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Call the shots from behind the scenes and you’ll be more effective than when you’re operating under a giant spotlight. You’ll achieve great satisfaction seeing others as conduits of your expression. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your group dealings will bring far more satisfaction than will arrangements with people on an individual basis. If you can make a choice, do what makes you happy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Your powers of concentration and strong fortitude will help you nab whatever you pursue. Thus, now is the time to focus your efforts on an objective of especial importance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Just because everyone won’t be in total accord over something that you want to achieve, don’t lose faith in it before you even try. You’re the one who knows what it’s all about. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2012 Something you’ve always treated as a simple hobby could become a paying endeavor in the year ahead. Of course, it’s going to require marketing expertise and knowledge of just how to spread the word. If you don’t have the goods, find someone who does. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t let too much time elapse before correcting a business arrangement that needs some readjustment. The calendar isn’t your ally, and you could lose out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Consistency is a must if you hope to achieve an important objective. If you do things in fits and starts, it might look impressive but could prove to be completely unproductive. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Make every effort to perform a distasteful assignment properly, the first time around. If you don’t, you’ll only drag it out by having to rework it over and over until you get it right. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There may be a good reason why companions will resist using your methods or procedures to accomplish a joint endeavor. Before getting upset, find out why they are opposed. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You shouldn’t have any trouble achieving your goals, but you could have a problem going after something that you think you want but really don’t. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Just because someone has a title, it doesn’t automatically make him or her smarter than you. Don’t be intimidated by rank or position -look deeply at the substance of the individual. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Although everything might not be optimum or exactly as you’d like, things in general should go rather well for you. Be grateful for whatever you can accomplish or achieve. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The only way you’re going to get any concessions from others is to first show that you’re prepared to make some compromises yourself. It’s a give-and-take world we live in. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Unless duties and responsibilities are equally distributed among coworkers, friction could quickly arise. In a perfect world, each person would see how much she or he could do, not how little they can get away with. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- A friend won’t appreciate it if you make light of his or her problems, because the matter is extremely serious to them. Treat it with a great deal of sensitivity and concern. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Do what you can, and don’t expect anything from yourself that you know you won’t be able to deliver. If your hopes and expectations are unrealistic, you’ll be asking for disappointment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You’re not likely to have much luck trying to sell something that you don’t believe in, because your apathy will show. Don’t try to peddle an item that you think is worthless.

Iran sentences American to death in CIA case
By NASSER KARIMI Associated Press TEHRAN, Iran — An Iranian court has convicted an American man of working for the CIA and sentenced him to death, state radio reported today, in a case adding to the accelerating tension between the United States and Iran. Iran charges that as a former U.S. Marine, Amir Mirzaei Hekmati received special training and served at U.S. military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan before heading to Iran for his alleged intelligence mission. The radio report did not say when the verdict was issued. Under Iranian law, he has 20 days to appeal. The 28-year-old former military translator was born in Arizona and graduated from high school in Michigan. His family is of Iranian origin. His father, a professor at a community college in Flint, Michigan, has said his son is not a CIA spy and was visiting his grandmothers in Iran when he was arrested. His trial took place as the U.S. announced new, tougher sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program, which Washington believes Tehran is using to develop a possible atomic weapons capability. Iran, which says it only seeks nuclear reactors for energy and research, has sharply increased its threats and military posturing against stronger pressures, including the U.S. sanctions targeting Iran’s Central Bank in attempts to complicate its ability to sell oil. The U.S. State Department has demanded Hekmati’s release. The court convicted him of working with a hostile country, belonging to the CIA and trying to accuse Iran of involvement in terrorism, today’s report said. In its ruling, a branch of Tehran Revolutionary Court described Hekmati as a mohareb, an Islamic term that means a fighter against God, and a mofsed, or one who spreads corruption on earth. Both terms appear frequently in Iranian court rulings. In a closed court hearing in late December, the prosecution asked for the death penalty for Hekmati. The U.S. government has called on Iranian authorities to grant Swiss diplomats access to him in prison. The Swiss government represents U.S. interests in Iran because the two countries don’t have diplomatic relations. Hekmati is a dual U.S.-Iranian national. Iran considers him an Iranian since the country’s law does not recognize dual citizenship. His father, Ali Hekmati, and family friend Muna Jondy, an attorney who has been speaking on behalf of the family, did not immediately respond to emails and phone messages left at their offices before business hours today morning. Similar cases against Americans accused of spying have heightened tensions throughout the years-long standoff over Iran’s nuclear program. Iran arrested three Americans in July 2009 along the border with Iraq and accused them of espionage, though the Americans said they were just hiking in the scenic and relatively peaceful Kurdish region of northern Iraq. One of them was released after a year in prison, and the other two were freed in September in deals involving bail payments that were brokered by the Gulf sultanate of

Police say bomb was in paper bag
LAFAYETTE, Colo. (AP) — A bomb that seriously injured a Colorado couple was left beside their car in a paper bag with their names written on it, and the woman’s ex-husband is a person of interest in the case, police said Sunday. Allyson Stone, 44, and her current husband, 59-year-old Christopher Stone, were hospitalized with burns after the explosion Saturday in Lafayette. The couple found the bag as they were preparing to drive to Boulder, and they put it in the car with them, police said. Christopher Stone told investigators it exploded as his wife began to open it when they had driven about a block. About 20 homes were evacuated as police investigated. Residents were allowed to return about eight hours later when no other explosives were found. Lafayette Police Cmdr. Gene McCausey said Sunday that Allyson Stone’s former husband, 55-year-old Michael Anthony Brittain, is considered a person of interest in the case. McCausey said police and FBI agents searched Brittain’s home in the Denver suburb of Thornton on Saturday night. However, Brittain is not in custody and has not been charged. A phone listing for Brittain could not immediately be found. Neighbors told KMGH-TV that Brittain is a nice person and they couldn’t imagine him being involved in the attack. Brittain and Allyson Stone have had friction in the past, the station reported. Court records show Brittain was charged in a domestic violence case involving his wife and children in August 2003. However, the Boulder County district attorney dismissed three of the charges in February 2004, and Brittain was found not guilty on a remaining assault charge in January 2004, according to a state court summary. Allyson filed for divorce three days after Brittain’s arrest in the case. In February 2011, the judge in the divorce case issued a judgment saying Allyson Stone owed $121,520 to Brittain, court records said. Court documents also show that in March 2007, a 63-year-old Boulder County woman was granted a permanent restraining order against Brittain. It’s unclear why she obtained the order. Allyson Stone has been in the news in the past. She received death threats in 2010 after a dog bit her and the case went to court, The Denver Post reported. The dog could have been put to death under vicious-animal statutes but was spared. Authorities have said they don’t believe the explosion was related to that incident but hadn’t ruled it out.

Bus crash kills 2, injures dozens
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A bus crashed Sunday on an icy interstate highway in southwestern Montana, killing two people and sending more than 30 others to area hospitals, officials said. The westbound Rimrock Trailways bus crashed on Interstate 90 about a mile west of Clinton, 18 miles southeast of Missoula, shortly after 7 a.m., Dan Ronan of the American Bus Association said. All of the 34 people on board were either injured or killed. The crash was one of several reported along that stretch of highway Sunday morning, closing both eastbound and westbound lanes of an 8-mile section of the interstate between Clinton and Turah. It was not clear if there were additional injuries, or how many. All lanes were back open by Sunday evening. Two people died in the bus crash, Montana Highway Patrol Sgt. Scott Hoffman said. St. Patrick Hospital spokeswoman JoAnne Hoven said 12 passengers were taken to the Missoula hospital. Late Sunday she said seven were in serious condition and one was in critical condition. Four others were treated and released, she said. Mary Windecker, spokeswoman for the Community Medical Center, also in Missoula, said 20 passengers were taken there to be treated for various injuries, none critical Those suffering the worst injuries appeared to have been ejected when the bus slid on its side and bounced, breaking out the windows on the driver’s side. Three people were pinned under the bus. Hoffman said the driver was among the seriously injured. He said the estimated speed of the bus was 65 to 70 mph, and that it slid 150 feet when it entered the median, though it’s unclear how long it might have been out of control before that. “When it went on its side, because of the speed involved, it had a bouncing motion,” Hoffman said. “And as it did people were ejected through those windows.” The bus ended up in the median on its side, said Bill Tucker, the fire chief for the Clinton Rural Fire District. Two of the passengers were transported to a hospital by helicopters, and six or eight by ground ambulance, he said. The rest of the survivors, which Tucker described as “walking wounded,” were loaded on a Clinton Elementary School bus and taken to Community Medical Center. The cause of the crash was not yet known, though it is believed icy conditions were a factor, Ronan said. The electronic equipment on the bus indicated it was going 65 mph at the time of the crash, he said. The speed limit in the area is 75 mph, but Montana law requires motorists to travel at a speed that is safe for the conditions, and Hoffman said authorities were investigating whether the bus was going too fast. “The law states you must drive to the conditions, and that’s where our investigation is going on this,” said Hoffman. “We have no other indications of another vehicle being involved. We think he was simply going too fast for the road conditions. We had one passenger state already that they felt the bus driver was going too

Oman, which has good relations with Iran and the U.S. On Dec. 18, Iran’s state TV broadcast video of Hekmati delivering a purported confession in which he said he was part of a plot to infiltrate Iran’s Intelligence Ministry. In a statement released the same day, the Intelligence Ministry said its agents identified Hekmati before his arrival in Iran, at Bagram Air Field in neighboring Afghanistan. Bagram is the main base for American and other international forces outside Kabul, the Afghan capital. It is not clear exactly when he was arrested. Iranian news reports have said he was detained in late August or early September. Hekmati’s father, Ali, said in a December interview with The Associated Press, that his son was a former Arabic translator in the U.S. Marines who entered Iran about four months earlier to visit his grandmothers. At the time, he was working in Qatar as a contractor for a company “that served the Marines,” his father said, without providing more specific details.

fast right before the crash. “We’re pretty sure what happened is the conditions rapidly changed and went from wet to icy.” The bus was headed west from Billings to Missoula. Ronan declined to identify the man other to say that he was a veteran driver who joined the company last spring. The man had driven the same route for Greyhound before Rimrock Trailways took it over last summer, Ronan said. Officials shut down the interstate after multiple other crashes, including a tractor-trailer rollover, said Andy Burke, a firefighter with the Missoula Fire Department. He was unsure of the number of injuries from those crashes. “I don’t know how many total ambulances there were,” he said. “We saw quite a few of them passing us back and forth.” It appears the roadway had become wet and then froze, catching drivers off guard, Burke said. “It turned into a sheet of ice,” he said. “That whole section was just super slick. Definitely black ice conditions.”

Alaska town slammed with 18 feet of snow
By RACHEL D’ORO Associated Press ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Dozens of National Guard troops have arrived to help an Alaska fishing town dig out from massive snows that have collapsed roofs, trapped some people in homes, and triggered avalanches. Cordova is used to snow, but not like this season’s blanketing. The Guard reported more than 18 feet of snow has fallen in the past weeks, although the National Weather Service did not immediately have a measurement. “There’s nowhere to go with the snow because it’s piled up so high,” said Wendy Rainney, who owns the Orca Adventure Lodge. A storage building for the lodge — which offers fishing trips, hiking, kayaking and glacier tours — partially collapsed under the weight of the snow, she said. “This is more quantity than can be handled.” Officials said at least three buildings have collapsed or partially collapsed and six homes are deemed severely stressed by heavy wet snow. The city has set up a shelter at a local recreation center, but said people leaving homes in avalanche-risky areas have been staying with other residents. Cordova spokesman Allen Marquette said the town also was ready to set up a pet shelter if necessary. The town issued a disaster proclamation last week after three weeks of relentless snow overwhelmed local crews working around the clock and filled snow dump sites. “We had no alternative but to declare an emergency,” Cordova Mayor Jim Kallander said. “It became a life-safety issue.” Responders said Sunday that rain fell overnight, making for a slippery, treacherous mess in the Prince William Sound community of 2,000 year-round residents. The region has been pummeled by snow, but

Cordova is of particular concern because there is no road access to the town, only boat and plane passage, said Maj. Gen. Thomas Katkus, adjutant general of the Alaska National Guard. There have been no reported injuries, but bad weather has prevented the Guard from flying to the town, 150 miles southeast of Anchorage. More than 70 Guard members arrived in Cordova via state ferry Sunday. About 50 of them will help clear roofs, roads, boats. The rest will provide other assistance. Three state emergency workers were already in town to help with emergency response planning. The state also is working on bringing in more heavy equipment to Cordova. Katkus said Guard members will be on hand for up to two weeks. “This is an ongoing operation,” he told reporters Sunday. An avalanche brought snow and debris down on a section of the Copper River Highway, the 12-mile link from the town to the local airport. State transportation officials said a secondary road was opened to two-lane traffic while crews cleared the highway Sunday. Another storm that started Saturday also brought rain, which soaked into the snow, weighing it down. Classes will begin later than usual today, but officials said students should go only if parents are comfortable with them venturing out. Some roads have been cleared, but officials say residents also are being creative, traveling on foot and by skis and snowshoes. The National Weather Service said the snow depth at the airport measured 59 inches before the rain fell, weighing the level down to 47 inches. today is supposed to be clear before another system moves in Tuesday, bringing more snow and rain, as well as winds as strong as 40 mph. “This break in the weather is very critical and very fortunate,” meteorologist Don Moore said.
