Should parents lose custody of super obese kids?
CHICAGO (AP) — Should parents of extremely obese children lose custody for not controlling their kids’ weight? A provocative commentary in one of the nation’s most distinguished medical journals argues yes, and its authors are joining a quiet chorus of advocates who say the government should be allowed to intervene in extreme cases. It has happened a few times in the U.S., and the opinion piece in Wednesday’s Journal of the American Medical Association says putting children temporarily in foster care is in some cases more ethical than obesity surgery. Dr. David Ludwig, an obesity specialist at Harvardaffiliated Children’s Hospital Boston, said the point isn’t to blame parents, but rather to act in children’s best interest and get them help that for whatever reason their parents can’t provide. State intervention “ideally will support not just the child but the whole family, with the goal of reuniting child and family as soon as possible. That may require instruction on parenting,” said Ludwig, who wrote the article with Lindsey Murtagh, a lawyer and a researcher at Harvard’s School of Public Health. “Despite the discomfort posed by state intervention, it may sometimes be necessary to protect a child,” Murtagh said. But University of Pennsylvania bioethicist Art Caplan said he worries that the debate risks putting too much blame on parents. Obese children are victims of advertising, marketing, peer pressure and bullying — things a parent can’t control, he said. “If you’re going to change a child’s weight, you’re going to have to change all of them,” Caplan said. Roughly 2 million U.S. children are extremely obese. Most are not in imminent danger, Ludwig said. But some have obesity-related conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, breathing difficulties and liver problems that could kill them by age 30. It is these kids for whom state intervention, including education, parent training, and temporary protective custody in the most extreme cases, should be considered, Ludwig said. While some doctors promote weight-loss surgery for severely obese teens, Ludwig said it hasn’t been used for very long in adolescents and

Occupy the Courts

Hundreds reject US Supreme Court ruling on election spending
By MEGHAN BARR The Associated Press NEW YORK — Facing freezing temperatures and snowy weather, several hundred protesters gathered at courthouses across the nation Friday and some clashed with police as they protested a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that removed most limits on corporate and labor spending in federal elections. In Washington, D.C., 11 people who got into confrontations with police were arrested on the courthouse steps and on the plaza, while another person was arrested inside the courthouse for unlawful entry. A crowd of about 100 protesters gathered on the sidewalk outside the court’s 1,300-pound bronze doors, which were shut on account of the protest, chanting: “Whose steps? Our steps.” Earlier, demonstrators wearing black robes and pretending to be Supreme Court justices sang songs mocking the Citizens United ruling on the Capitol lawn. Occupy Wall Street activists joined forces with Move to Amend, a grassroots coalition that organized the event in more than 100 cities, though the turnout in many places was low. In some cities, fewer than a dozen protesters showed up. Protesters said they were kicking off petition drives in support of a constitutional amendment that would overturn a 2010 court ruling that allowed private groups to spend huge amounts on political campaigns with few restrictions. In San Francisco, where a couple of hundred protesters gathered in the city’s financial district, at least 11 protesters were arrested after chaining themselves to the front doors of Wells Fargo’s corporate headquarters. Others linked arms to prevent people from entering a Bank of America branch. Many protesters spilled into the streets as police in riot gear and private security guards tried chasing them off. Two cable cars came to a grinding halt as protesters took over an intersection, and traffic in some places had to be rerouted or came to a complete standstill. In Boston, fife and drum music played as protesters rallied at the federal court-

can have serious, sometimes life-threatening complications. Ludwig said he starting thinking about the issue after a 90-pound 3-year-old girl came to his obesity clinic several years ago. Her parents had physical disabilities, little money and difficulty controlling her weight. Last year, at age 12, she weighed 400 pounds and had developed diabetes, cholesterol problems, high blood pressure and sleep apnea. “Out of medical concern, the state placed this girl in foster care, where she simply received three balanced meals a day and a snack or two and moderate physical activity,” he said. After a year, she lost 130 pounds. Though she is still obese, her diabetes and apnea disappeared; she remains in foster care, he said. In a commentary in the medical journal BMJ last year, London pediatrician Dr. Russell Viner and colleagues said obesity was a factor in several child protection cases in Britain. They argued that child protection services should be considered if parents are neglectful or actively reject efforts to control an extremely obese child’s weight. A 2009 opinion article in Pediatrics made similar arguments. Its authors said temporary removal from the home would be warranted “when all reasonable alternative options have been exhausted.” Jerri Gray, a Greenville, S.C., single mother who lost custody of her 555-pound 14-year-old son two years ago, said authorities don’t understand the challenges families may face in trying to control their kids’ weight. “I was always working two jobs so we wouldn’t end up living in ghettos,” Gray said. She said she often didn’t have time to cook, so she would buy her son fast food. She said she asked doctors for help for her son’s big appetite but was accused of neglect. Her sister has custody of the boy, now 16. The sister has the money to help him with a special diet and exercise, and the boy has lost more than 200 pounds, Gray said. “Even though good has come out of this as far as him losing weight, he told me just last week, ‘Mommy, I want to be back with you so bad.’ They’ve done damage by pulling us apart,” Gray said.

house. Some protestors even dressed their dogs in pinstripes and red ties, saying that dogs should be able to vote if big businesses basically can. A demonstration of about 100 people outside the federal courthouse in Minneapolis included chants and street theater. One skit included a judge who performed a marriage ceremony between a person and a corporation. About 50 people braved blizzard-like conditions in Chicago, waving at passing cars and chanting, “Money out of politics.” In Cleveland, about 40 to 50 protesters in hats, hoods and gloves held a morning vigil outside the Metzenbaum Federal Courthouse, followed by a march through downtown streets. During the march, paper $50 “bills” were taped over the mouths of ralliers. About two dozen protesters drew occasional honks from passing drivers as they stood outside Baltimore’s federal courthouse with signs that read: “Corporations are not people, Money is not speech,” and “B-heard: Corporate money out of politics.”

In a bald Barbie world
Cancer has touched most of us in the area — either directly or through someone we know and/or love. One of the moments that stands out for me while living through my father’s cancer diagnosis and treatment was the day he lost most of his hair. I had gone into the bathroom to take a shower and when I pulled back the curtain, there it was. At first I thought, “Sheesh, who left that there?” Then I realized what it was and why. I immediately sat down on the stool and cried. It was the first physical sign my father was sick and he might not make it. We had all tried to stay positive and upbeat and were pretty much ignoring the darker side of the disease. It’s what we had to do to carry on day after day. Everything changed after that. It was real. It was happening to us. Rebecca Sypin is one of the people behind a Facebook campaign urging Mattel to create a bald Barbie, one she says children battling cancer and other diseases that cause hair loss can relate to. Sypin knows about children and cancer. Her daughter is battling leukemia. The Beautiful and Bald Barbie Facebook page has been up and running for less than a month and already has more than 65,000 friends. But despite that support, bald Barbie has gotten a cool reception from Mattel. A bald Barbie may still be a possibility. Mattel released a written statement Thursday saying the company is honored that so many people are looking to Barbie as the face of such an important cause. “We receive hundreds of passionate requests for various dolls to be added to our

collection,” the statement reads. “We take all of them seriously and are constantly exploring new and different dolls to be added to our line.” Many have had a problem with the buxom blond and her curvy attributes. She doesn’t represent most of the real women we know — a few but not the majority. Even her impossibly tanned and toned boyfriend, Ken, is an unrealistic portrayal of the common man. Sorry guys. Being different can be tough for a kid. It can also be a way for children to ostracize each other. Children can be as mean as snakes. Don’t take offense. You know it’s true. They latch on to any little thing and they’re off and running. For children dealing with cancer and the loss of their hair, Bald Barbie can serve as an ambassador. They can look at her and know that if Barbie doesn’t have hair, it must be OK. It can also help with children whose parents may be struggling with cancer treatments and have lost their hair. I imagine if it frightened me, it would absolutely frighten a child. So, go to Facebook, check out the Bald Barbie page and let’s help the fantastic, plastic lady who gave us hours of fun and stretched our imaginations as little girls help put the next generation at ease.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Backers of a ballot proposal to legalize medical marijuana in Ohio have been cleared by the state attorney general to begin gathering the roughly 385,000 signatures needed to put it on the November ballot. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said Friday that he has certified the first 1,000 valid signatures, and cleared summary petition language on the proposed Ohio Medical Cannabis Amendment as fair and truthful. The amendment to Ohio’s constitution would allow those with a debilitating medical condition to use, possess, produce and acquire marijuana and paraphernalia. Qualifying conditions include cancer, AIDS, glaucoma and Crohn’s disease. It would authorize vendors to make and distribute the otherwise illegal drug and set up a state oversight commission. The proposal also would protect patients from violations of privacy, confidentiality and government interference.

Guard fired for alleged threat to Kasich
LEBANON (AP) — A prison guard in southwest Ohio has been fired after allegedly making threats about Ohio Gov. John Kasich on the guard’s Facebook page. Jessie Hubbard, of Trenton, was fired from the Lebanon Correctional Institution on Jan. 17, after an investigation into his posting of the comment on the social networking site, prison spokeswoman Ellen Myers confirmed Friday. Hubbard’s termination notice says that he posted “Ok we got Bin Laden ... let’s go after Kasich next .Who’s with me?” on the social networking site, the Middletown Journal first reported. Personnel records obtained from the prison by the newspaper show that Hubbard was told that he violated rules of conduct, including threatening, intimidating or coercing another employee or a member of the general public, the Journal reported. He also was accused of actions that could compromise or impair the ability of an employee to effectively carry out duties as a public employee and an act that would bring discredit to the employer. Hubbard said he made the posting in May in a joking conversation with friends over Senate Bill 5, which would have greatly limited the power of unions. Hubbard, who is a union member, said the post was never meant to be taken

Father arrested after allegedly caging girl

CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio father has been jailed after he allegedly put his 12-year-old daughter into a dog cage as punishment, then threatened to electrify it. His attorney says James Tapke denies the child endangering charge and claims it was a joke that got out of hand. A judge Friday set bond at $50,000. Police in Springfield Township near Cincinnati say the 41-year-old man restrained the girl with duct tape, then shut her in a large dog cage. Police say her 13-year-old brother let her out after about 20 minutes, but Tapke put her back in after she poured water on him. Police say Tapke put an electrical jumper pack outside the cage. He allegedly said several times that he could electrify the cage, before releasing his daughter again.

Group continues effort to ban dog auctions
COLUMBUS (AP) — A group that wants Ohio to ban dog auctions has turned in more signatures in its effort to get a new law on the books. Last week, the Coalition to Ban Dog Auctions had fallen about 360 signatures shy of the number needed. Ohio’s elections chief said Friday the campaign has submitted an additional 4,086 signatures. Secretary of State Jon Husted says the group already has 115,209 valid signatures. If enough are certified, state lawmakers would have four months to pass a law against dog auctions. If legislators don’t take any action, the coalition may collect more signatures to put a measure on the statewide ballot in November. The Ohio Association of Animal Owners has said dog auctions are well monitored and that a ban is unnecessary.

seriously and was taken out of context, according to the newspaper. “I feel like they wanted to make an example of me for some reason,” Hubbard said. “At no time did I ever mean it as anything other than a joke.” He said that a “disgruntled co-worker” reported the posting in September and Hubbard was put on administrative leave while it was investigated. Hubbard also said that the matter was turned over to the Warren County prosecutor’s office, which he says declined to prosecute him. Messages were left at the prosecutor’s office. Myers declined to comment further, other than to say: “We will allow the discipline to speak for itself.” Kasich said Friday that his office played no role in the firing, but that “people shouldn’t be saying things like that about anybody, anywhere, any place, anytime.” Hubbard, who has been employed at the prison since 1997, was twice named employee of the month and received a “satisfactory” rating on his last employee evaluation that was conducted in April, according to the newspaper. Hubbard, who is appealing the firing, could not be reached for additional comment Friday. There was no telephone listing for him in Trenton.

There are so many misconceptions about stamp collectors and the art of collecting stamps. You’ll hear the cry that it costs too much money to collect stamps or where am I going to get stamps anyway? Some feel it is too complicated because there are so many ways to collect stamps. Which method should I choose. The simple facts are these: First, there are inexpensive ways to collect stamps. Second, the “right” method to use is the one that makes you happy. Where do you start? The first places to get stamps are from your own mail or ask others to give you their used envelopes with the stamps attached. There are basically two types of adhesive that you will have to deal with to remove the stamp. You might even consider the significance of the postmark or from whom the letter came, before you decide to remove the stamp from its envelope. This is very true for very old stamps. Older stamps can be removed very simply. Cut around the stamps and then soak the stamps in warm clean water. Most stamps will just float to the top after

about 10 minutes. Avoid touching stamps with your fingers if you can; any hobby store will have a set of tongs that you should use in handling stamps. Although at first glance they may look the same, tweezers are not an acceptable substitute because the points and ridges could damage the stamp. Stamp tongs have flat ends to make it easier to pick them up when laying flat on a table. Once the stamps have been removed place them between sheets of non scented paper towels, making sure they are dry. Once dry find something that has some weight to it. I would always use the Manhattan phone book. Keep the stamps pressed for about three weeks. Sounds simple enough until you try to remove self adhesive stamps from their envelopes. Soaking does not work well with self adhesive. Instead while holding your stamps with the tongs, spray an aerosol air freshener on the stamp and it will come off. Be careful because the self adhesive is still intact on the stamp. To remove the stickiness, use a dab of talcum powder on the back and voila, no more adhesive.

Now it’s time to sort the stamps into your “unique” collection. There are more choices than anyone could fathom. Are you interested in a particular country? Are you interested in planes, trains, and automobiles or a segment of history? Some collectors are interested in a particular shape, size or color. This is where you start to see the fun in collecting. Now you need to store your collection, preferably in something that allows you to see the stamps and keep them protected. Again, any hobby or stamp store will carry stock sheets in various designs. The most popular are a black cardboard-like backing with clear strips and usually a three hole punch on the left side. They are relatively inexpensive and any regular three ring binder would hold these sheets nicely. The second type of stock sheet looks more like a manila folder. Slots have been made on the folder of the same material. The downside of this method is that you can’t readily see the stamp. In a future article, I will tell you about the stamp collecting hobby I chose.

That is why Wolfrum promotes bringing a college branch campus to Van Wert, where high school graduates and adults can work toward a bachelor degree. He believes that not only would this encourage talented people to stay here and cheaply get a start on their careers, but it would enter Van Wert into the field of higher education, an area that is one of the fastest growing business sectors nationally. “Manufacturing is this county’s backbone. The mega-site north of town was a great idea and some very good people have worked on it. But whether or not any large manufacturer ever locates here, there needs to be other plans.” Wolfrum also believes we need to encourage reinvestment in our small towns as our county’s financial health depends on a vibrant countywide economy. The county’s outstanding highway system, including a four-lane with plenty of access, should allow us to better promote our once great network of small towns as possible destinations for manufacturing plants and other business. Wolfrum doesn’t think we can continue to let these towns deteriorate and not expect the county as a whole to eventually suffer the consequences.

IT WAS NEWS THEN
One Year Ago • The Girl Scouts of Van Wert County have an ongoing service project – helping overseas military families. The Girl Scouts have been clipping coupons and sending them to an Army base in Germany. The coupons are then placed in the PX and BX for families of service men and women to use. 25 Years Ago — 1987 • The Most Reverend Albert H. Ottenweller, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Steubenville, offered the invocation at the opening of the Ohio Senate for the 117th General Assembly. With Bishop Ottenweller were Thomas J. Moyer, chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court and Ohio Senate President Paul E. Gillmor. • Irvin and Mary Grone, owners of the A & W Drive-In, 924 E. Fifth St., are expanding their facility. “We are adding a 27 foot by 38 foot addition to the north of the present building that will become an enclosed dining area,” Grone said. The dining area will include a counter that will serve both the dining room and those wishing to eat in their cars at the front of the restaurant. • St. John’s wrestlers placed fifth in the Van Buren invitational. Seventeen teams participated in the two-day tournament. Senior Randy Stemen captured the 185 pound championship by defeating Andy Wurm of Tiffin Calvert by 3-0 decision. For the tournament Stemen was 4-0 and had three pins. 50 Years Ago — 1962 • By proclamation of Mayor Richard F. Wulfhorst, Jaycee Week will be observed locally from Jan. 21 through Jan. 27. Jaycee Week celebrates the founding of the Jaycee movement in St. Louis in 1915. From a small nucleus, it expanded into an organization with a quarter of a million members in 4,100 communities. • In a game that was much closer than the final score would indicate, the Wildcats from Harrod topped the Wildcats from Jefferson, 61-48. The local cagers outscored their opponents from the field, 38-30, but 31 big points from the foul line for Harrod made the difference. • The Jay-C-Dels met Thursday evening in the home of Mrs. James Mesker on South Clay Street. It was decided to hold a husbands party on Feb. 17. At the conclusion of the meeting a luncheon was served by Mrs. Mesker, assisted by Mrs. Harry Dunlap and Mrs. Tom Osting, assistant hostesses. 75 Years Ago — 1937 • The regular dinner meeting of the Delphos Civic Club will be held tonight at the Phelan Hotel. Those in charge of the ticket sale are Frank Niedecken, Sam Checkles and Harold Walterick. The club was organized several years ago and has done much to aid local business men. Through their efforts the city streets are decorated at Christmas time and for other festive occasions. • The members of the committees in charge of the arrangements for the Past Commanders and Past Presidents banquet of the American Legion and Auxiliary will be held at Legion headquarters tonight. The committee in charge is made up of: Mrs. Tony Rupert, Mrs. Dale Miller, Edmund Imber, Oliver Schneider and Frank Mundy. • The following officers of the Ottoville council of the Catholic Ladies of Columbia were installed by Rev. Ralph Mueller: Mrs. W. T. Remlinger, president; Fanny Wannemacher, vice president; Mayme Harmon, financial secretary; Loretta Brinkman, recording secretary; Anna Giesken, monitor; Louise Schmitt, inner guard; and Louise Lehmkuhle, trustee.

David Merritt, of Lima, who conducted a camp meeting in Waterworks Park in Delphos several weeks ago and who has been in charge of a similar meeting at Scotts Park, east of here, was arrested on the streets in Lima, charged with carrying concealed weapons and held to the grand jury. Concerning the arrest, a Lima paper has the following to say: “Because his actions did not seem rational to the police, and further more because he appeared to be dangerous to the local bluecoats, Dave Merritt, colored, of this city, was arrested on east Market street at 7:30 o’clock Tuesday. “He was taken to the police station and lodged in a cell until the arrival of Mayor Robb. In the meantime, it was found that Merritt was carrying concealed weapons and that charge was placed against him. “When arraigned before Mayor Robb on the charge, he was bound over to the grand jury under $100 bond. In a sack, which the colored man was carrying over his shoulder, was found two revolvers, one of the huge Colt size and a smaller one. Merritt asked the mayor if he furnished bond, if he could take his property with him. The small one, the mayor said he could, but a second look at the .44 calibre Colt revolver was enough to cause that executive to shake his head “no”. Merritt explained his gun toting by telling the police that he was a leader of a revival meeting at Scott’s Crossing, east of Delphos, and said that thieves had the habit of stealing the guns, so it was necessary for him to take them with him whenever he left camp.” Delphos Herald, Aug. 12, 1914 ---------Word Was Received of Safe Arrival Word was received in Lima of the safe arrival of Dr. and Mrs. W.B. Van Note at New York. Some concern had been felt by friends, as nothing had been heard from them since the war began. It was supposed that they started homeward from Europe on the first of August, but nothing definite could be learned. ---------William Johnson, ten years old, who is visiting at the home of E.F. Moore in Lima, suffered a compound fracture of the right arm when he was thrown from the back of a cow which he was riding. Delphos Herald, Aug. 12, 1914 ---------Buggy Struck By Auto A buggy occupied by Mr. and Mrs. P.L. Hickey and children of Delphos, and Earl Wagner of Detroit, was struck just west of Delphos, Saturday, by an auto driven by D.J. Jones of Delphos. The auto driver was attempting to pass from the rear at the time. One wheel of the buggy was slightly damaged, but no one was injured.

BOB HOLDGREVE
---------Woman Injured When Buggy Was Overturned Monday, just after noon, while driving to their home west of Delphos, Mr. and Mrs. Otto Schemelzer, met with an accident. They were driving home in a cozy cab, and when they were near the Holdgreve farm, west of town, the cab overturned. The glass was broken and Mrs. Schmelzer had her face considerably cut. Mr. Schmelzer was uninjured. Dr. J. Wolf, of Delphos, was summoned and gave attention to the injured and then took Mr. and Mrs. Schmelzer to their home. The cozy cab was considerably damaged. Delphos Herald, July 6, 1914 ---------City Council Meeting Councilman Davis reported that the Lang Milling company would allow the placing of hitching racks in front of their property on East First street, between Main and Washington streets, providing the city would furnish sewer outlet to drain the property. The outlet will be furnished by the city and the racks will be placed. It was reported that a scale on East Second street at the Chas. Dienstberger property extends into the street beyond the new pavement line. This matter was left to the improvement committee to confer with Mr. Dienstberger and arrange to have the same moved.

Delphos Herald, July 1, 1925 ---------Ordinance Regulating Tractor Engines The ordinance which regulates the driving of traction engines over the paved streets of Delphos is to be given a test to determine wether or not it is valid, a case having been appealed from the court of Mayor Williams, in which the offense was the violation of this ordinance. The ordinance makes it unlawful to drive a traction engine over or across a paved street without first laying down plank. Russell Pollock, who drove a traction engine over one of the paved streets while in the employ of the Middle Point Threshing Company was arranged before Mayor Williams Saturday on the charge of violating a city ordinance and pled not guilty. The evidence was sufficient to declare him guilty and he was assessed a fine of $10 and the costs in the case. Pollock gave notice to the Mayor that he would appeal the case to Van Wert County Common Pleas Court. Owners of traction engines

have questioned the validity of the ordinance, and the question will now be settled in the Van Wert County Courts. Delphos Herald, Aug. 12, 1912 ---------Council Regulating Riding of Motorcycles The Delphos City Council passed an ordinance regulating the riding of motorcycles on the streets of the city. The ordinance provides that each owner of a motorcycle operated upon the public streets must pay a registration fee of 42.00 annually. Failure to comply subjects the offender to a fine of not more than $25 for the first offense and not more than $200 for each subsequent offense. A like fine is also fixed for failure to provide a suitable brake on the machine or for failure to carry a bell or other device for signaling and for failure to display a white light on the front from 30 minutes after sundown to 30 minutes before sunrise. The ordinance will also have the effect of subduing snorting motorcycles within the city with a fine of not more than $25 for the first offense and not more than $250 for each subsequent offense. The new ordinance prohibits the carrying of two parties on motorcycles excepting tandems. Delphos Herald, July 24, 1912 ---------About Trucks and also Lincoln Highway In the winter of 1911, a Massachusetts motorcycle manufacturer had to get a shipment to New York to catch a boat. The heavy snows had congested freight traffic so badly that the railways could not promise a car in time to catch the steamer. In despair, the motorcycle builder appealed to a truck builder to get the shipment to New York within three days. Although the roads were badly blockaded with snow and ice, the power truck made the 150 miles to New York in three days. These trucks were all single units but in 1917 the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. turned one of these “straight bodied” trucks into a tractor and trailer equipped it with pneumatic tires, loaded it with 10 tons of Goodyear tires and send it off from Akron, Ohio to Boston, Mass. This was the first sixwheeled truck to make a long haul. A car, carrying tires, spare tools, accompanied the truck and its crew of four. The average speed along the Lincoln Highway was between 14 and 18 miles an hour. The brakes were not powerful enough to hold on steep grades and bridges, he applied the brakes to slow down and the left front brake grabbed. The truck was still in the creek at one o’clock this afternoon. A large wrecker had been called but a truckcrane also had to be secured to lift the vehicle out.

WASHINGTON — Newt Gingrich’s standing ovation Thursday night, when he attacked CNN moderator John King for asking about allegations that Gingrich wanted an “open marriage” with his second wife, told us little about South Carolina, but much about human nature. The query, for which King has been exhaustively critiqued, was both necessary and inevitable. Forget the elephant in the living room; it was the herd in the powder room. Marianne Gingrich, to whom Gingrich was married when he began an affair with his current wife, Callista, had been in the news all day as excerpts of a then soon-tobe-released interview with ABC News were replayed dozens of times. By debate time, the words “open marriage,” a stale phrase from the silly Seventies when Gingrich was a bespectacled college professor with mut-

ton-chop sideburns, were on the tips of the tongues of a million wags. Just as King had no choice but to ask, Gingrich answered in the only way he could — by attacking the questioner. Shooting the messenger is a time-honored method of spin control among royals and their imitators. Gingrich’s bilious reproach was an oratorical defenestration. King’s audacity was “despicable,” he intoned, and the crowd roared. Suddenly, Gingrich’s questionable past was forgotten and whatever ire his record might have inspired was redirected at The Media — that monolithic target of

attention from his immediate problem but he managed to win the public’s heart. He may not have shifted the entire planet, as he described the object of his ambition in 1985, but he managed to secure his rising momentum in the state that consistently selects the Republican presidential nominee. People who know Gingrich, and certainly those enemies who convinced Marianne Gingrich that she should step forward for the good of the country, must have wondered how things could go so wrong. How could they have miscalculated that Gingrich’s greatest liability could become his greatest strength? They did not, as one might first suppose, underestimate the public’s disdain for the media. Very likely they share it. What they forgot were the lessons wrought by Kenneth Starr and the power of pro-

jection. In a nutshell: The more you pick on a person for human failings with which all can identify, the more likely you will create sympathy rather than antipathy, especially if that individual has been forthright in his confession and penitent for his transgression, as Gingrich has been. He was ahead of the curveball this time, with nothing left to tell or for his aggrieved former wife to expose. Thus, her interview and the King question had the feel not of revelation, but of a political hit aided and abetted by a salacious press. Even Bill Clinton, who was less forthcoming and therefore, at least initially, less sympathetic, came to be viewed as a victim following months of investigation and the airing of sordid details only voyeurs could enjoy. Starr, as King, was merely doing his job, yet he became less likable than

Clinton among Regular Joes watching television in their kitchens. However nobly Republicans may have considered their mission, everyday Americans — particularly men — saw persecution. A Catholic friend captures the operative sentiment in terms Gingrich surely would appreciate. When she sees someone succumb to temptation or betray some other human frailty, she says: “I have those weeds in my garden.” To err is human; to forgive divine. We like that way of thinking because we all need others’ forgiveness. When Gingrich turned to his audience and said we all know pain — we all know people who have suffered pain — he instantly morphed from sinner to savior, the redeemer in chief. He correctly counted on the empathy of his fellow man, if not necessarily womankind, and won the moment. But a moment is just

that, and projection of the sort experienced by the Charleston audience can be fraught with peril. Overidentification clouds judgment and, though we are all sinners, we are not all running for president of the United States. Gingrich’s sins of the flesh ultimately are of less importance than the narcissism and grandiosity that compel his actions. Voters would do well to think less of what they would do in his shoes than what Gingrich will do should he win the prize. As the reality of his astonishing self-regard sinks in and one imagines where his unflagging certitude might lead, it is less easy to identify with the weeds in his garden. As projection falters, empathy finds no place to land. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.

remaining and Jefferson with the ball at half-court. The Wildcats ran a screen to set a shooter free but the shot, from beyond NBA 3-point distance, bounced straight off the back of the iron and the game was over. Delphos coach Marc Smith was happy with the effort his team gave in the game. “Our attitude was real good tonight,” he said. “I thought we played together very well and executed our game plan very, very well. We extended out on their shooters. We attacked the offensive glass and attacked the 1-3-1 zone very well - a defense that caused us all kinds of problems last week. We did things effort-wise and execution-wise to keep us in the basketball game. We gave ourselves a chance to win. Unfortunately, we couldn’t grab the bull by the horns at the end.” Lincolnview coach Rob Welch noticed. “If you notice here in Delphos, all their games are pretty close,” Welch explained. “They play that nice 3-2 or 1-2-2 and they do a nice job with it. I felt that we turned it over late when we got up five and had a chance to put them away but we turned the ball over. go to the bench. Thompson drove down the lane for two, Dakota Stroh hit a free throw and Klinger hit two charity tosses to narrow the gap. In fact, going to the line would be a regular occurrence for Jefferson for the rest of the half. While Lincolnview struggled to score with Whitaker on the bench - only four points in the next 7-plus minutes of game time, Thompson and Dunlap began living at the line while the Lancers began piling up fouls. Dunlap was 6-for-6 in the second quarter and Thompson was 6-of-8. In fact, the Wildcats were 17-of20 from the line in the first half while only going 4-of-15 from the field. “We just talked about (the free throws),” he added as he gestured toward the locker room. “We shoot 51 percent as a team; that’s just what we shoot. The first half we settled down a little bit, stepped up and knocked them down. We got ourselves to the freethrow line and got ourselves back into the basketball game. We were good and it shows we were aggressive. We just couldn’t capitalize on that late in the game. We just need to put ourselves in that situation night-in, nightout because there is no sub-

With aggressive plays like this from Jefferson senior Nick Dunlap, being fouled by Lincolnview’s Conner McCleery, the host ’Cats took advantage of the free-throw line in the second period to run off 10 unanswered points. However, the visiting Lancers garnered a 3-point NWC victory at The Stage. I knew it was going to be tough.” The game started with Lincolnview looking very sharp. Whitaker opened the scoring with a layup out of transition before Kade Carey hit a jump shot with his toes on the line in the corner. Jefferson’s Klinger hit a bucket from underneath to get the home team on the board but then Carey scored off breaking the Wildcat press and Whitaker hit nothing but net on a long trey for a 9-2 Lancer lead. But something that would plague the Lancers for the rest of the game reared its head: fouls. Whitaker picked up his second and had to stitute for that pressure.” Lincolnview battled back after watching their early lead slip away with the clock stopped. Williams got the ball with only a handful of seconds left and nailed the 3/4-length shot for three points to send the game into halftime tied at 25-25. The third quarter was a back-and-forth battle as the two teams set up for the final fourth-quarter push. Williams was again the player putting the ball in the bucket for Lincolnview as he scored eight of the team’s 10 points, including two more treys. Dunlap did the most damage for Jefferson, picking up six points on slashing moves to

the bucket. “The ball was bouncing their way a little bit and then they missed a couple of foul shots,” Welch added. “Then the ball was bouncing our way - the game just kept on flip-flopping. But give the kids credit; they came in here and battled and battled and didn’t give up. We just need to think about where we can be if we just bear down and work hard.” Lincolnview was led by Whitaker with 12 points and Williams with 11. The Lancers were 18-of-40 from the field for 45-percent shooting, including 6-of-13 (46.2%) from beyond the arc. They were only 2-of-6 from the line (33.3%). Dunlap led all scorers with 17 points and Thompson chipped in 14. The Wildcats were only 10-of-30 from the field (33%), counting 0-for8 from 3-point land. After the scalding start from the line, the team ended 21-of31 (67.7%), including 3-of-9 down the stretch in the fourth quarter. Jefferson won the battle of the boards 20-18 on the strength of Thompson’s 11 caroms, completing a doubledouble. The Wildcats also won on turnovers, edging out the Lancers 13-14. With the win, Lincolnview goes to 5-7 overall and 2-2 in the NWC. Jefferson falls to 1-11, 0-4. The Lancer junior varsity made it a clean sweep for the visitors, taking home a 66-43 win over the snow-covered roads to Middle Point. Lincolnview returns to action tonight at Antwerp, while Jefferson visits Paulding Friday.

Bulldogs use 2nd-half comeback to knock off Bearcats
Vorhees — off the bench — started the rally. Jordan Travis hit another 3-pointer to bring the Bulldogs within two. Spencerville took a slim 27-24 lead at the break. The Bearcats went up as many as eight points in the third quarter thanks to Bowers and Dominic Corso. Connor Kohls started his scoring the second half with a triple from the top of the key to bring Columbus Grove within four, 41-37, to end the third quarter. Kohls scored all of his 18 points in the second half for the Bulldogs. “Sometimes, we have to get on Connor, making sure he attacks the basket,” Columbus Grove coach Ryan Stechschulte said. “He has a different role this year and we look for him to facilitate and make things happen.” The fourth quarter came down to execution and making free throws. Spencerville struggled at the line, shooting 7-of-16 on the night, while the Bulldogs made 12-of-13. Columbus Grove finally took the lead — its first of the night — thanks to a drive by Vorhees and then a 3-pointer from Travis with 4:20 on the clock for a 48-46 edge. After Corso tied the game at 48, Travis drilled another 3-pointer to give the Bulldogs the lead for good. A drive and free throw by Kohls then extended the margin and they and never looked back. “I think we had every opportunity to win if we would have made our free throws,” Spencerville coach Kevin Sensabaugh said. “There was a stretch in the fourth quarter when we took a couple of bad shots and they came down and made a couple and that turned the tide. It was a great game and I was really proud of our effort.” Bowers led all scorers with 21 points. Corso had 19 points and eight rebounds. Derek Goecke added eight points. “We didn’t shoot any free throws in the first half and we talked about that during halftime, getting to the bucket,” Stechschulte added. “We are pretty good free-throw shooters (68% as a team) and any time we get to the line, that is free points we need to take advantage of.” Travis had a team-high 19 points for the Bulldogs. Kohls had 18 points. Derek Rieman finished with 14 points. Vorhees added 12. “Give credit to Grove,” Sensabaugh added. “They are hard to match up with. Their two guards (Travis and Kohls) are a really good tandem. But they also have depth and athleticism. They have a lot of guys that can

PICKS
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Marion Local first-year coach Kurt Goettemoeller was worried about the physicality that the St. John’s boys basketball team brings to the hardwood, especially this season. He had reason to be concerned as the host Blue Jays wore down the Flyers 54-39 in Midwest Athletic Conference action at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium. “That’s kind of how it is Friday nights; the officials were letting the teams play and my kids like that kind of challenge. I think we did wear them down some,” St. John’s coach Aaron Elwer noted. Goettemoeller agreed. “I felt we could match them physically but not tonight. We don’t have the typical physical strength that a Marion team has and it showed but that’s just for this year,” he explained. “We tried to do some extra conditioning this week but the first thing that goes when you’re wore down is the legs and the free-throw shooting. That has been a continuing problem for us.” Both teams’ man-to-man defenses were extremely active in the opening stanza, making things tough for the other unit’s offense. They combined for 7-of-20 shooting in the eight minutes and when Jays’ senior Ben Warnecke hit a 3-ball from the left-side pocket with 37 ticks showing, the Jays broke the final tie of the night and led 11-8. They would not trail again. The Jays (6-5, 3-1 MAC) used that momentum early into the second canto, putting together a 10-0 spurt — eight from junior Curt Geise (gamehigh 21 markers, 4 assists) on a pair of bombs and a jumper — to seize a 21-8 edge and force Goettemoeller to call time at 4:57. His Flyers (4-5, 1-2 MAC) replied, rallying behind senior Kellen Goettemoeller’s five points (tied for a teamhigh 11 points) as they battled within 23-18 on his triple from just right of the key with 5.1 ticks showing. The teams combined for 15 miscues in the period, eight by the Jays (14 for the game versus 16 for the visitors). The third period has been a bugaboo for the Jays lately.

and classmate Dylan Thobe had five steals. They finished with 18 fouls and host Arcanum this evening. St. John’s totaled 10 fouls and will visit unbeaten Edgerton tonight, with a 6 p.m. junior varsity tip (weather permitting). “Defensively, we had a lot of energy for the second straight game,” Elwer added. “We talked about that Monday, about how this was a new season and we want to get on a roll in the second half. That and our rebounding; we have played with a lot of energy and enthusiasm the last two games and we need that to continue.” In JV action, the Flyers improved to 6-3 by pasting cold-shooting St. John’s (4-7, 0-4 MAC) 38-22. Jordan Rethman led the victors with 12 and Ryan Bruns added 10. Top point-getter for the Blue Jays was sophomore Ryan Koester with six.

An offensive rebound and stickback by St. John’s junior Ryan Buescher over Marion Local’s Alex Rosenbeck were key plays Friday night at “The Vatican”. The Blue Jays gathered a 15-point MAC win over the visiting Flyers.
Not this night. They didn’t necessarily shoot well — 4-of-13 (16-of-38 overall, 6-of-14 long range, for 42.1%) — but their supremacy on the glass began to take its toll with a 10-5 span (30-23 overall, 10-9 offensive), getting five extra shots versus one for the guests. They also began to be more aggressive in taking the ball to the basket and getting to the line. They hit all six of their tries in the period (16-of-21 for the night for 76.2% versus 5-of-12 by the Flyers for 41.7%). Thus, when Geise hit a pair of freebies with 2.2 ticks remaining — off an offensive rebound — the Jays led 38-23. The Jays limited Marion to 2-of-8 shooting and forced five errors in the stanza. Starter Craig Niekamp (team-high 5 boards) picked up two late fouls — his third and fourth — late in the period and he eventually fouled out. “We didn’t start out well. We had a few too many turnovers in the first half and we missed some good looks at the basket,” Elwer noted. “We talked at the half about the third quarter being a struggle for us lately and how we had to clean things up; the kids accepted that challenge, too. We got more aggressive offensively.” The Flyers were not toast in the fourth period but they couldn’t make a significant dent in their deficit, either. Forced to foul, the took advantage as they went to the line 15 times in the finale and dropped in 10, led by 5-of-6 by Geise and 4-of-6 by junior Ryan Buescher (a double-double of 13 markers, 10 boards). The closest the guests could get was 11. “It seemed that every loose ball and every rebound, every time someone needed to hit the floor, St. John’s got it. Once again, a lot of that has to do with just being stronger,” Goettemoeller added. Marion Local had senior Lee Pierron toss in 11 markers as they finished 14-of-41 shooting — 6-of-19 trifectas — for 34.1 percent. Senior Alex Rosenbeck added five assists

step up their game tonight. Teams are going to concentrate on our high-powered kids. When Ottoville focused on (6-2 senior) Brent Hermiller (held to 2 points), Niese and Kaufman really stepped up their game and that’s what we needed. We’re really hard to defend when we have three, four or at times five guys that can all score.” For Turnwald the first half was very disappointing: “At halftime, we talked about attacking not playing sideways. The first half, we had more assists to them than they did to themselves. We gave them 14 or 15 points the first half off of our poor play.” Ottoville only attempted six shots from inside the arc, connecting on three, and were 3-10 from 3-point land. The Wildcats were also able to capitalize on the Big Green’s 11 turnovers for the half. As the third quarter began, one could feel the momentum starting to sway a little towards the Big Green. Ottoville cut into the Wildcats’ lead throughout the third quarter, cutting the deficit to single figures, only to still trail 35-25 after three. Turnwald finally saw a different mindset with his team: “Second half, we attacked and good things started to happen. We got good midrange shots, inside-outside 3s and we knocked some shots down. We attacked more and that’s what we need to do to start the game.” With the start of the fourth period, the Wildcats started going cold from the field and also struggling with the defensive pressure the Big Green was throwing at them. The Big Green’s effort paid off and with a long 3 by 6-1 junior Bryan Hohlbein, the game was knotted at 40-40 with 2:00 to play. Miller City pushed the lead back to 44-40 with 45 seconds to play. Ottoville answered with a basket by Honigford and a foul shot to bring the

FRIDAY ROUNDUP

for the visitors and Bath fended off every Van Wert challenge, the last one via an 11-for-13 free-throw performance in the game’s last three minutes. One of the Cougars’ spurts -an 8-0 run in the middle of the third period -- actually captured the lead, 39-38 at the 2:51 mark, but it was short-lived. Four turnovers in the remainder of the third quarter didn’t help, as Bath regained control and led 46-41 after three. The home team started the fourth quarter with buckets by Taren Sullivan, Brad Davis and Nate Heffner to up the lead to a seemingly commanding 52-41 lead at the 6:17 mark. The Cougars were, as usual, up to the challenge. Reggie Phillips sliced inside for an old-fashioned 3-point play, then assisted on a Jacob Myers layup, then laid one in, wide open, on a Joey Hurless assist. It was a game again at 52-48, ’Cats, with 5:12 left. Davis, however, went to work inside, bouncing in an 8-footer, then duplicating the feat 30 seconds later. Phillips snuck inside for another bucket to cut the margin to 56-50 but the rest of the game was a free-throw contest that was won by the Wildcats. Myers hit six free throws but the Bath foul shooters weren’t missing, either. AJ Smith drilled a three from the left corner that got the Cougs within 62-59 at the 1:10 mark. Bath’s Logan Rockhold split a pair at the line and Smith swished two freebies -- 63-61, Bath, at 0:38. The ’Cats proceeded to make their next six free throws for the win.

Lause reflects on JAG career

NAPLES, FLA — When Delphos native Glen Lause graduated from St. John’s High School in 1966, little did the small-town boy know just how far and wide his future would take him. He attended the University of Dayton, which had a mandatory ROTC program. This streamlined Lause into a military career that would last 26 years and take him around the globe. Lause graduated from UD in 1970 and was commissioned as a lieutenant in the United States Army. He would go on to law school at Ohio Northern University and start his career in human resources with the Army Adjutant General Corps. Because the Army had more adjutants than it needed, Lause found a stellar career prosecuting criminals and more. “I went through the adjutant general course in October 1973 and went to my first duty station at Fort Riley, Kan., to the First Infantry Division. Immediately when I got there, they had an overage of adjutant general officers and I was encouraged to become a judge advocate general officer. In January 1974, I was promoted to captain and became a JAG officer,” he said. Lause stayed at Fort Riley to help prosecute cases but would have to complete some coursework

later. “I was recommended to be a prosecutor on post. At the time, all of our soldiers were coming back from Vietnam and we had some problems. We had six prosecutors for the division and we were averaging two or three cases per prosecutor per week. The offenses were everything from AWOL to drugs to rape and murder — the whole enchilada. I did that for about two years and then took the JAG Basic Course for a year because I had

skipped it,” he said. The Army sent Lause to the Washington, D.C., area to get familiar with the appellate process. “Then, I went to Falls Church, Va., to be an appellate attorney for the government. I wrote and argued appellate briefs before military courts in D.C.,” he said. “In the spring of 1979, I was sent to the advanced course for a year and stayed on with the faculty to teach criminal law at the JAG school until 1983, when I went to the general staff college at Fort Leavenworth for a year. When I graduated in 1984, they sent me to Germany.” Hopping from one job or school to another every couple years or so gave Lause a broad range of experiences but his time in Deutschland gave him some of the most memorable ones. “I was the deputy staff judge advocate of the 2nd Armored Division from June 1984 to July 1987. I was in charge of all the lawyers, enlisted personnel and civilian personnel. We interacted with the German police and prosecutors. We had an agreement with the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) that if any of our soldiers committed offenses, we would have jurisdiction to prosecute them,” he said. “When I first got there, we had a soldier who went AWOL. He had married a German lady and every time he called her, a man answered the phone. He thought she was having an affair, so he flew back to Germany from the United

In the fall of 1979, a cluster of Episcopalians made another trip to Rome seeking a haven for Anglo-Catholic believers anxious to exit their increasingly divided church. Vatican officials agreed that it was time to petition their new leader, the young Pope John Paul II. The document was prepared and then signed on the altar of the North American Martyrs at Rome’s North American College. In it, members of the Society of St. Augustine of Canterbury and other like-minded clergy made a blunt request. “We pray and beseech your Holiness to receive and accept us into the Roman Catholic Church,” they wrote, “for we are sheep not having a shepherd and would return to the care of that Holy Apostle singularly commissioned by the Divine Lord to feed his sheep.” The pope soon said “yes.” But that simply opened another chapter in a long, long, story, one that continues decades later. There is certainly more to this story than headlines about a sudden decision by Pope Benedict

XVI to commence sheep stealing in the wake of his “Anglicanorum Coetibus” (“groups of Anglicans”) pronouncement in 2009. This document allowed Anglican priests and congregations to join new “personal ordinariates,” the equivalent of national dioceses, while retaining key elements of their liturgy, music and other traditions. The plan allows for married men to become priests, but not bishops -- as in Eastern Rite Catholicism. In England, The Times knocked this 2009 plan, saying, “Rome has parked its tanks on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s lawn.” Today, tensions remain high on both sides of the Atlantic after a Jan. 1 announcement that the ordinariates are set to open.

It’s almost laughable to call these developments “sudden” or the result of unilateral actions by the pope, said Father Allan Hawkins of St. Mary the Virgin Catholic Church in Arlington, Texas, a priest in the Church of England before coming to America. The roots of these events even predate the Episcopal Church’s 1976 vote to ordain women as priests and later to the episcopate. “The end of the ‘70s was important, but this really goes back to the Oxford Movement,” said the 77-year-old priest, referring to a mid-1800s surge toward AngloCatholicism. While the ordination of women “made headlines, it was just a symptom of what was happening deep down. ... “So many of us had yearned all our lives to be part of a church with a clear sense of authority. That yearning is what pulled us to Catholicism.” Converts had been “trickling into Rome” for decades, he noted. Still, more Anglicans made the move under the “Pastoral Provi-

sion” announced in 1980, which stopped short of creating a separate, Anglican-friendly “personal ordinariate.” Another pivotal moment came in the early 1990s, when the Church of England voted to ordain women. At that point, it appeared a sweeping “Roman Option” might become a reality, and the late Cardinal George Hume said the time was right for the “conversion of England for which we have prayed all these years. ... It could be happening -- a realignment of English Christianity.” But some in the British hierarchy stalled, including liberal Catholics who feared waves of traditionalist converts committed to conservative approaches to liturgy and doctrine. The key Vatican official in these talks, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, finally exclaimed: “What are the English bishops afraid of?” Ratzinger, of course, is now Pope Benedict XVI. His years of personal contact with Anglicans seeking shelter eventually led to “Anglicanorum Coetibus.” Thus, on Jan. 22, Mount Cal-

vary Church in Baltimore will enter the U.S. ordinariate -- the first Episcopal congregation that voted to take that step. Father Jason Catania, its priest, expects to complete his own journey sometime this coming summer. At that point, he will do something that once seemed unthinkable. Catania will kneel at his parish altar, as a Catholic priest, and recite one of Anglicanism’s most famous texts -- the Prayer of Humble Access from the 1662 edition of The Book of Common Prayer. “That’s the prayer just before Holy Communion, the one that begins, ‘We do not presume to come to this thy Table, O merciful Lord, trusting in our own righteousness, but in thy manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under thy Table,’” said Catania, quoting from memory. “That’s when I will know that this has really happened, that we are finally home.”

The Herald –11

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, JANUARY 22, 2012 In the approaching months, don’t let it dismay you if you have to shoulder more career-related responsibilities than usual. With the additional work will come more rewards, such as acclaim, promotion and a fatter paycheck. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your possibilities for success could be severely impaired if you start jumping to conclusions. Once you get off course, it won’t be easy to find your way back on track. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you’re presently indebted to a friend, don’t wait until she or he starts asking for repayment. Save yourself a lot of embarrassment by letting your pal know when you can start the reimbursement. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Whether or not you want it, your associates will have a strong influence on how the day turns out for you. If you’re smart, you won’t hang out with a bunch of losers. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Obligations that normally wouldn’t be yours could be dumped in your lap. Don’t turn this into something worse than it already is by making mountains out of molehills. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -There’s a chance you could run into one of your least favorite people, in what would otherwise be a most convivial setting. Don’t let this partypooper ruin your good times. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The slightest spark could ignite a volatile issue between you and your mate, if you are edgy and explosive. Once an argument is introduced, it could metastasize frighteningly. Keep a cool head and a long fuse. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Refrain from unduly criticizing the work of another, because it will only cause hard feelings. In fact, the person might be so devastated that he or she will never try the same thing again. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -If you haven’t been managing your resources too wisely lately or are still broke from the holidays, you might not have the funds to participate in doing something fun with friends. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Any restrictions you are experiencing aren’t due to the persons with whom you’re now involved, so don’t take things out on them. Grin and bear your pain alone. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If the world is a bit too gloomy for you, redirect your attention onto others instead of dwelling exclusively on your own self-inflicted pain and thwarted interests. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you’re still operating on a stringent budget, don’t start piling things on your credit cards just to keep up with friends. You’ll only prolong your predicament. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Meaningful objectives might not be too easy to accomplish right at the moment. In order to achieve them, it’ll require far more effort than you’re likely to expend. MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2012 Some of your greatest successes in the year ahead will come from situations that allow you to act independently, so don’t hesitate to undertake a big assignment on your own. You will succeed with or without anyone’s help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t be doubtful about taking on some extra projects or assignments at this time. They are likely to turn out quite well, especially if you’re the one calling the shots. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -There’s a possibility that you might make a new alliance with someone who knows a lot about a subject that could be of service to you. Use this newfound info correctly and it will take you to new heights. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t hesitate to get involved in an organization’s activity, because associating with others could open some important doors that you couldn’t otherwise get into. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There are some positive new developments occurring where your career is concerned. A meeting of the minds with someone in power could be in the making. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Knowledge, experience and expertise you’ve acquired could prove to be a feather in your cap when it’s discovered that no one but you has the right stuff for a certain job. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Because one of the participants in a joint venture is both bold and brave, you could find yourself involved in something of greater significance than it would be without this person involved. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Although normally you might desire to work on one thing at a time, someone could get you involved in a second concurrent project. You’ll handle both well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Don’t be afraid to elevate your sights where your objectives are concerned. You’ll quickly find out that you’re capable of bigger achievements than you think. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -If your past efforts warrant it, this might be the day to remind your superiors of your accomplishment when the chance to do so falls in your lap. Don’t let the opportunity fall out unused when you stand up. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Don’t hesitate to cultivate a friendship with two new acquaintances whom you instantly like. You can never have too many friends, and each one can be special. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A favorable shift in your domestic conditions is indicated, which could prove to be extremely beneficial for you and your entire family. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are likely to be entering a new cycle, which could prove to be quite beneficial for you in more ways than one, but especially so materially.

Obama to press Congress to revisit $1.2T in cuts
By ANDREW TAYLOR The Associated Press WASHINGTON — In its budget proposal next month, the Obama administration will urge lawmakers to revisit the failed attempt by a congressional supercommittee to cut the deficit by at least $1.2 trillion, the White House says. The proposal runs counter to the common wisdom in Washington that any major deficit reduction effort is unlikely in a presidential election year. Instead, lawmakers are focusing on a one-year extension of a payroll tax cut and supplemental jobless benefits sought by the president as part of last fall’s jobs agenda. But also looming are sweeping across-the-board spending cuts required next year because of the supercommittee deadlock. Senior lawmakers like House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., are focusing on a less ambitious one-year plan to give the Pentagon a reprieve from cuts that both the administration and Republicans say would cripple the military. The White House plan, likely to reprise new taxes and fee proposals that are nonstarters with Capitol Hill Republicans, would turn off the entire nineyear, $1.2 trillion across-theboard spending cuts, referred to as a “sequester.” “We have a sequester coming less than a year from now unless Congress acts,” said a senior administration official. “We’re going to ask Congress to do now what we think Congress should have done in December, which is enact more than $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction, turn off the sequester and maintain the (spending caps).” The official required anonymity as a condition to speak to a reporter on the plan. That plan of budget cuts would be imposed under last summer’s budget and debt pact between Obama and Congress that imposed $900 billion in savings from accounts appropriated by Congress each year and promised at least $1.2 trillion more from the work on the deficit supercommittee, or, failing that, across-the-board cuts to a sweeping set of defense and domestic programs. The threat of the across-theboard cuts was supposed to prod the panel, but it never got on track and collapsed just before Thanksgiving over intractable differences on tax increases and cuts to popular programs like Medicare. The failure of the panel capped a long, difficult budget year in which the warring sides were only able to agree when facing either a shutdown of the government or an unthinkable default on U.S. obligations. Policymakers face the prospect of more gridlock this year as election-year politics promise to even further cripple the already limited ability of Obama and Capitol Hill Republicans to work together. In that light, the administration’s proposal could be doomed to dead-on-arrival status despite widespread desire to turn off the automatic cuts. The White House is already playing down expectations. “In terms of essential, mustdo items, the payroll tax cut extension is the last one,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said last month. At the same time, a new wrinkle has emerged due to the

Multistate personhood push misled company, crew kindles abortion debate
NEW YORK (AP) — In poll after poll, Americans say the economy is the paramount issue facing the nation, with hot-button social issues trailing far behind. Nonetheless, abortion will likely be in the election-year spotlight in a slew of states facing possible votes on sweeping abortion bans. In at least 12 states — including crucial national battlegrounds such as Ohio and Virginia — anti-abortion activists are seeking to place “personhood” measures on the ballot this year. The measures vary in some details, but in general they define human life as beginning with fertilization and are intended to ban virtually all abortions, even in cases of rape and incest. Supporters and opponents of personhood will be seeking to galvanize their camps this weekend during a flurry of rallies, vigils and fundraising events marking Sunday’s 39th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark Roe v. Wade ruling. Personhood measures, if approved, would directly challenge that ruling, which established a woman’s right to an abortion. Thus far, the personhood movement is 0 for 3, losing referendums in Colorado in 2008 and 2010 and in Mississippi last November. But instead of retreating, the movement is trying again in Colorado and expanding to every other region except the Northeast on the premise that it can influence public opinion even if the measures fail. “These are defeats only if we quit,” said Keith Mason, president of Personhood USA. “If we continue on, they are building blocks for success.” Mason likened his movement to the campaign to legalize same-sex marriage, noting that gay-rights activists had persevered and made headway despite losing referendums in all 30 states where voters have weighed in on the issue. For now, it’s unclear how many of the personhood proposals will actually go before voters later this year. Authorities have given the green light to gather signatures for proposed ballot measures in Colorado, Ohio, Montana and California, while legislators in Kansas, Virginia, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Alabama and Georgia have been working on bills that could lead to personhood referendums. The Associated Press ROME — The cruise captain who grounded the Costa Concordia off the Tuscan coast with 4,200 people on board did not relay correct information either to the company or crew after the ship hit rocks, the cruise ship owner’s CEO said Friday as the search resumed for 21 missing passengers. CEO Pierluigi Foschi told Italian state TV that the company spoke to the captain at 10:05 p.m. (2105 GMT; 4:05 p.m. EST), some 20 minutes after the ship ran aground on Jan. 13, but could not offer proper assistance because the captain’s description “did not correspond to the truth.” Capt. Francesco Schettino said only that he had “problems” on board but did not mention hitting a reef. Likewise, Foschi said crew members were not informed of the gravity of the situation. Passenger video shown on Italian TV indicates crew members telling passengers to go to their cabins as late as 10:25 p.m. (2125 GMT; 4:25 p.m. EST). The abandon ship alarm sounded just before 11:00 p.m. (2200 GMT; 5:00 p.m. EST). “That’s because they also

did not receive correct information on the gravity of the situation,” Foschi said. The $450 million Costa Concordia was carrying more than 4,200 passengers and crew when it slammed into well-charted rocks off the island of Giglio a week ago. Eleven people have been confirmed dead. The Concordia shifted again on its rocky perch Friday, forcing the suspension of diving search operations for the 21 people still missing and raising concerns about the stability of the ship’s resting place. But the search in areas above the waterline resumed in the evening after the ship was deemed stable. The remarks by Costa CEO Foschi are the latest to indicate a lack of proper communication with authorities on land as the emergency unfolded. An audiotape of the Concordia’s first contact with maritime authorities has a Concordia office repeatedly replying that the ship had experienced a blackout, even though it had hit the reef more than half an hour earlier. Italian media reported the officer on the call was Schettino, but that could not be independently confirmed. By BRADLEY KLAPPER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The State Department said Friday it “may have no choice” but to close the U.S. embassy in Damascus and remove all US personnel from the country wracked by a 10-month revolt against the regime of President Bashar Assad unless Assad’s government takes extra steps to protect the mission. The department issued a statement late Friday noting

collapse of the supercommittee: a new set of spending caps for the 2013 budget year that begins Oct. 1 that require cuts of about $8 billion from the $554 billion budget for defense programs, the first outright cuts since the so-called peace dividend of the early 1990s. The required defense cuts are separate from those that would be imposed under the sequester, but the administration official predicted lawmakers might revisit them when turning to the annual appropriations bills later this year. The budget is slated to be released Feb. 6.

that the Obama administration has “serious concerns about the deteriorating security situation in Damascus, including the recent spate of car bombs and about the safety and security of embassy personnel.” The uprising against Assad has killed an estimated 5,400 people since March. Although the revolt began with mostly peaceful protests, an increasingly strong armed element has developed, and many people are now fighting the regime.
