Feathers known as low-key, easy-going
BY MIKE FORD mford@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Elected officials are in shock today in the wake of Councilman Dick Feathers’ passing Wednesday. Those who knew him best say he was a low-key and easy-going man who loved his family and was a valuable servant of city government and a local religious group. “He was great to work with; I was on council with him for four years and worked with him in my four years as mayor. He came in in January 2004 and was always great to work with. He was always willing to step up and try to get things done. He cared about what’s good for the city and he will really be missed,” Mayor Michael Gallmeier said. “He was concerned about different things but especially about construction projects. He had retired from construction work, so whenever those types of projects were going on, he was always involved. He would ask a lot of quespasses away, it hurts. We will have to replace him and those are big shoes to fill,” he said. Former City Council President Bob Ulm said Feathers brought his business experience to the table in council chambers but also brought the traditional family values that are common in Delphos. “Dick’s experience in the construction business served us very well on council. He didn’t hesitate to raise questions about a project or plan when he thought they needed to be asked. But more than that, Dick was a genuinely nice guy who was so proud of his kids and devoted to his wife Joyce. It was a pleasure to get to know and work with Dick and the city has lost a very valuable community servant,” Ulm said. The family issued a statement indicating Feathers was very proud of his service as a council member. “Dad loved and enjoyed living in a small town. He served on various committees for churches, schools and other local organizations

By The Associated Press Today is Thursday, Jan. 26, the 26th day of 2012. There are 340 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 26, 1942, the first American Expeditionary Force to go to Europe during World War II arrived in Belfast, Northern Ireland. On this date: In 1788, the first European settlers in Australia, led by Capt. Arthur Phillip, landed in present-day Sydney. In 1837, Michigan became the 26th state. In 1861, Louisiana passed an Ordinance of Secession, becoming the sixth state to break free from the United States. In 1870, Virginia rejoined the Union. In 1939, during the Spanish Civil War, rebel forces led by Gen. Francisco Franco captured Barcelona. In 1979, former Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller died in New York at age 70. In 1992, Democratic presidential candidate Bill Clinton, appearing with his wife, Hillary, on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” acknowledged “causing pain in my marriage,” but said past problems were not relevant to the campaign. The Washington Redskins won Super Bowl XXVI (26), defeating the Buffalo Bills 37-24. Actor Jose Ferrer, 80, died in Coral Gables, Fla. In 1998, President Bill Clinton forcefully denied having an affair with a former White House intern, telling reporters, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”

Father, son sentenced Elections chief for Delphos burglary wants repeal of
Staff reports VAN WERT — A father and son were each sentenced Wednesday for their part in a burglary in which two refrigerators were stolen and sold for scrap. Thomas Stocklin, Jr., 54, Delphos, and his son Jeffrey Thomas Stocklin, 30, Lima, each had pleaded guilty to the same charge — third-degree felony burglary — but the sentences handed down by Van Wert County Common Pleas Court Judge Charles D. Steele were quite different. Thomas, the father, was sentenced to six months in jail with credit given for 40 days already spent in custody in the case. His son Jeffrey was given a nine-month prison sentence. The reason for the difference in punishments is Jeffrey Stocklin’s very long criminal record which dates back to 1997 when he was a juvenile. Steele read entries from the younger Stocklin’s record before pronouncing sentence, including theft, forgery, breaking and entering, DUI, attempted assault, failure to appear, and receiving stolen property. Stocklin told the judge that those crimes were committed due to a severe drug addiction, to which Steele replied, “I wouldn’t doubt that!” The pair were arrested along with a woman for breaking into the enclosed front porch of a home in the 300 block of South Canal Street in Delphos. They took the refrigerators from the soon-to-be abandoned building. Steele also ordered the Stocklins to jointly make restitution of $54 in the case. The following individuals also appeared Wednesday before Judge Charles Steele in Van Wert County Common Pleas Court: Steven R. Putt, 43, Decatur, Ind., was arraigned and entered a not guilty plea to a charge of non-support of dependents, was released on a $5,000 unsecured personal surety bond with a pretrial a hearing scheduled for Feb. 12. Joshua Schmidt, 28, presently incarcerated in prison on an unrelated charge, entered a not guilty plea to a charge of failing to register as a sex offender. This was his second violation for this type of charge. Schmidt will be released from prison shortly. Judge Steele set bond at $10,000 cash along with a $5,000 unsecured personal surety bond. A pretrial hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday. Haley N. Jones, 18, Buckland, entered a plea of guilty to a charge of breaking and entering, a felony of the fifth degree. Jones is also being held in Allen and Auglaize counties on similar charges. According to a Van Wert County Sheriff’s Department investigation, Jones along with others were responsible for breaking into a Venedocia business on July 6, 2012. Judge Steele ordered a

STATE/LOCAL

election bill
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio lawmakers should repeal a new law that shortens early voting in the presidential battleground state, rather than allow voters to decide in November whether the measure should be scrapped, the state’s top election official said Wednesday. Secretary of State Jon Husted, a Republican, said an expected fall campaign over the law would create confusion for voters as to which rules are in place. And he wants the GOP-controlled Legislature to come up with a new proposal after this year’s election. “We don’t need the confusion that will come by debating a referendum at the same time we’re trying to inform people how to vote,” Husted told local election officials at a conference in Columbus. Opponents of the elections overhaul measure included Democrats and President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, whose volunteers circulated petitions to successfully put the law on hold until Ohio voters could decide whether it should be kept. The law contained many ideas backed by Husted, though state lawmakers also left their mark. A partisan fight ensued over the plan, and the elections measure cleared the state Legislature in late June with no Democratic support. It’s been on hold since September. Lawmakers would have to repeal the bill this summer for it to not appear on the ballot. Asked to respond to Husted’s call for repeal, House Speaker William Batchelder said in a statement that “at this time there does not appear to be a consensus moving forward.” Senate leadership has been exploring the idea of repealing the law for the last three weeks, according to a spokesman for Senate President Tom Niehaus. They had approached Husted about whether it could be done. Husted said it costs taxpayers about $1 million to advertise the referendum and put it on the ballot. “The gains that we get out of this are just not worth the controversy,” Husted said. “So let’s hit the reset button, you know. Repeal it. And then go back and work through these issues.” A spokesman for the Ohio Democratic Party said it would stand with the thousands who signed the petitions regardless of what GOP leaders decide. “If the Republicans want to undo the harm they caused to our democratic process in trying to restrict voting rights, we welcome them to do so,” Seth Bringman said in an email. Among other changes, the law shortens the in-person early voting window from 35 days before Election Day to 17 days and the period for absentee voting by mail from 35 days to 21. The cuts

“We don’t need the confusion that will come by debating a referendum at the same time we’re trying to inform people how to vote.”
— Jon Husted, Secretary of State effectively eliminate a five-day period during which new voters could both register and cast a ballot on the same day. People would be allowed to vote in person on Saturday until noon, and not on Sundays or the three days before Election Day. Opponents of the law contend it would lead to longer lines and make it difficult for working people to cast a ballot. An extended voting period is perceived as increasing opportunities for Hispanics, blacks, new citizens and poor people to vote by giving them more chances to make it to the polls. Those groups traditionally support Democrats. Husted has argued the measure was about updating the state’s election rules, and bringing uniformity to the process. He said each of the state’s 88 counties should have the same early voting hours and be open on the same days. He and his fellow Republicans say it’s unfair that a voter in one county can cast an early ballot on a day when a voter in a neighboring county cannot. About 30 percent of the state’s total vote — roughly 1.7 million ballots — were cast before Election Day in 2008. Ohio is one of 32 states that allow voters to cast an early ballot by mail or in person without an excuse. Husted told reporters after his remarks that he didn’t know how voters would come down on the law this fall, but he thought it could get support. “In the heat of an election, if you talk about election reform, people are going to be for it,” he said. Aside from pushing for the law’s repeal, Husted told election officials he would continue urging changes in the way the state draws its political boundaries for U.S. House and state legislative districts. Disputes over whether the new lines were fair and competitive led the Legislature to create two primaries in the state, only to later rejoin them into one primary on March 6. “What we need in 2012 is more stability and less drama,” Husted said, drawing applause from the gathering of the Ohio Association of Election Officials.

LOTTERY

CINCINNATI (AP) — Chad Ochocinco, meet the speaker of the U.S. House. Via Twitter, of course. The New England Patriots wide receiver known for prolific social media interactions decided to tune in to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address and was wondering about the unsmiling man sitting behind the president. Informed it was Republican Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, Ochocinco decided to reach out to him on Twitter, asking Tuesday night if he was “OK.” Apparently still concerned Wednesday, the former Cincinnati Bengal asked Boehner if he were in better spirits and told Boehner to remember that he loved him if things seemed bad. Boehner thanked him in a Tweet, offered good luck in the Super Bowl and said the Bengals would see him in next year’s playoffs.

Navy SEAL raid shows campaign ahead
By KIMBERLY DOZIER and ROBERT BURNS Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Navy SEAL operation that freed two Western hostages in Somalia is representative of the Obama administration’s pledge to build a smaller, more agile military force that can carry out surgical counterterrorist strikes to cripple an enemy. That’s a strategy much preferred to the land invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan that have cost so much American blood and treasure over the past decade. The contrast to a full-bore invasion is stark: A small, daring team storms a pirate encampment on a near-moonless night, kills nine kidnappers and whisks the hostages to safety. Special operations forces, trained for such clandestine missions, have become a more prominent tool in the military’s kit since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that led to the ongoing war in Afghanistan. The administration is expected to announce today that it will invest even more heavily in that capability in coming years. The SEAL Team 6 raid in Somalia, which followed last May’s operation that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, has political dimensions in an election year. It gave an added punch to the five-state tour President Barack Obama began the day By ROBERT BURNS and DONNA CASSATA Associated Press after he delivered his State of the Union speech. Obama did not mention the raid that was unfolding during his Tuesday night address, but he dropped a hint upon arriving in the House chamber by telling Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, “Good job tonight.” The SEAL mission also helps soften the blow of defense cuts the White House is seeking. Not to be discounted is the feel-good moment such missions give the American public, a counterbalance to the continued casualties in Afghanistan. After planning and rehearsal, the Somalia rescue was carried out by SEAL Team 6, officially known as the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, according to two U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a secret mission. It was not clear whether any team members participated in both the raid in Somalia and the bin Laden mission in Pakistan. The SEALs parachuted from U.S. Air Force special operations aircraft before moving on foot, apparently undetected, to the outdoor encampment, two officials said. They found American Jessica Buchanan, 32, and Poul Hagen Thisted, a 60-year-old Dane, who had been kidnapped in Somalia last fall. The SEALs encountered little resistance from the kidnappers during the operation, which lasted about an hour to

IT WAS NEWS THEN

Fed: Recovery could require 3 more years

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve signaled Wednesday that a full economic recovery could take nearly three more years, and it went further than ever to assure consumers and businesses that they will be able to borrow cheaply well into the future. The central bank said it would probably not increase its benchmark interest rate until late 2014 at the earliest — a year and a half later than it had previously said. The new timetable showed the Fed is concerned that the recovery remains stubbornly slow. But it also thinks inflation will stay tame enough for rates to remain at record lows without igniting price increases. Chairman Ben Bernanke cautioned that late 2014 is merely its “best guess.” The Fed can shift that plan if the economic picture changes. But he cast doubt on whether that would be necessary. “Unless there is a substantial strengthening of the economy in the near term, it’s a pretty good guess we will be keeping rates low for some time,” he said. The Fed has kept its key rate at a record low near zero for about three years. Its new time frame suggests the rate will stay there for roughly an additional three years. The bank’s tepid outlook also suggests it’s prepared to do more to help the economy. One possibility is a third bondbuying program that would seek to further drive down rates on mortgages and other loans to embolden consumers and businesses to borrow and spend more. In a statement after a twoday policy meeting, the Fed said it stands ready to adjust its “holdings as appropriate to promote a stronger economic recovery in the context of price stability.” Treasury yields fell after the midday announcement. But yields stopped falling after the bank later issued forecasts for the economy and interest rates. They showed that while some members foresee super-low rates beyond 2014, six of 17 members forecast a rate increase as early as this year or next. It was the first time the Fed had released interest-rate forecasts from its committee members. It will now do so four times a year, when it also updates its economic outlook. The rate forecasts are an effort to provide more explicit clues about the Fed’s plans. They also coincide with a broader Fed effort to make its communications with the public more open. Lower yields on bonds tend to encourage investors to shift money into stocks, which can boost wealth and spur more spending. Stocks, which had traded lower before the Fed’s announcement, quickly recovered their losses. The Dow Jones industrial average closed at 12,758.85, its highest close in more than eight months. Some economists said the new late-2014 target may foreshadow further Fed action to try to invigorate the economy. Julie Coronado, an economist at BNP Paribas, said she thought the Fed was indicating that it will step up its purchases of bonds and other assets if economic growth fails to accelerate — even if it doesn’t slow.

Politics of defense cuts: emphasize the positive
WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is preparing to tighten its belt, but with an election-year battle looming in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta wants to stress the positive: Parts of the budget devoted to reshaping the military to fit a new global strategy will actually get fatter, he says. But that’s unlikely to mollify Republicans who say President Barack Obama’s plan will leave the Pentagon stretched too thin to handle potential security threats in the Middle East, Asia and beyond. Panetta is expected to outline the main areas of proposed spending cuts and increases at a Pentagon news conference today, more than two weeks before the Obama administration submits its 2013 budget proposal to Congress. He will be joined by Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, for a presentation designed to highlight the military leadership’s embrace of defense cuts. Panetta and Dempsey are expected to cast the plan as one that reflects President Barack Obama’s strategy for reorienting the military as it recovers from a decade of war By ALLEN G. BREED AP National Writer in Iraq and Afghanistan. Prominent in the Obama plan is a renewed focus on Asia, where China’s rapid military modernization has raised worry in Washington and rattled U.S. allies. That, along with continued security threats in the Middle East — especially Iran — is why Panetta wants to invest more in certain air and naval assets. He also is putting a focus on cybersecurity and commando forces like those who killed Osama bin Laden last May and who swooped into Somalia on Tuesday to rescue two hostages, including an American. The Pentagon has embraced a proposal by special operations chief Adm. Bill McRaven to send more manpower and equipment to worldwide “Theater Special Operations Commands” to strike back wherever threats arise, according to a senior defense official who spoke to The Associated Press, and other current and former U.S. officials briefed on the program. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the details of the proposal are still being worked out, including how fast the changes could be made. The stepped-up network would put top special operations personnel closer to the problems they face, better able to launch unilateral raids like this week’s Somalia missometimes been labeled a “dog whistle” for racist elements in the electorate. None of that was on Clarkson’s mind. After a barrage of responses to her Dec. 29 tweet, the 29-year-old Texan told fans, “My eyes have been opened to so much hate.” And she emphasized, “I do not support racism.” Sociologist and author John Shelton Reed, a professor emeritus at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was not surprised someone of Clarkson’s youth would fail to recognize the “baggage that ‘states’ rights’ carries.” Still, he says, hearing the term employed by people like Paul — and also by Texas Gov. Rick Perry before he quit the race — “it’s clear that we’ve turned some kind of page.” Paul, Perry and others referred to the Constitution’s 10th Amendment, which states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” The shorthand “states’ rights” came later. “Any time I hear it, I get this sort of little twitch, because I associate it with Ross Barnett or George Wallace,” says

an hour and a half, two U.S. officials said. Only one of the attackers fired back and was quickly subdued, one official said. The rest were believed killed, though officials did not rule out the possibility of an escape, as aerial surveillance of the scene was hampered on the cloudy, dark night. Army special operations MH-60 Black Hawk helicopters then swooped in to the subdued encampment near the town of Adado to carry away the SEALs and hostages. The captors were heavily armed and had explosives nearby when the rescuers arrived on the scene, Pentagon press secretary George Little said, but he was not more specific. Little declined to say whether there was an exchange of gunfire and would not provide further details about the rescue beyond saying that all of the captors were killed by the Americans. The American raiders caught the kidnappers as they were sleeping after having chewed the narcotic leaf qat for much of the evening, a pirate who gave his name as Bile Hussein told The Associated Press by phone. Hussein said he was not present at the site but had spoken with other pirates who were. They told him that nine pirates had been killed in the raid and three were taken away, he said. However, two U.S. officials said no Somalis were captured.

Term ‘states’ rights’ heard anew in election cycle
RALEIGH, N.C. — Pop music singer Kelly Clarkson wasn’t expecting such a harsh response when she tweeted her endorsement in the Republican presidential race. “I love Ron Paul,” she wrote late last month. Later, in a radio interview, she elaborated, “He believes in states having their rights, and I think that that’s very important.” Clarkson received hundreds of replies, some lambasting Paul and at least one suggesting that the “American Idol” winner choose her words more carefully. In particular, two words: “states” and “rights.” As the Republican presidential campaign has turned south, into the region that seceded from the Union 150 years ago, old debates about state and federal authority echo anew in phrases used by candidates, their supporters and the news media. Even before the Civil War, “states’ rights” had become a byword for the protection of black slavery. And since the late Sen. Strom Thurmond ran for president in 1948 as a States’ Rights Democrat, or “Dixiecrat,” the phrase has

sion. McRaven also wants the newly invigorated commands to build new relationships with foreign armies to help them lead their own operations, the senior defense official said. To save money, Panetta would reduce the size of Army and Marine Corps ground forces and shrink the U.S. presence in Europe, while maintaining a commitment to building missile defenses in Europe. He also is expected to delay production of perhaps 100 or more of the F-35 Lightning II stealth attack planes that the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps are counting on to replace a portion of their aging aircraft fleets. The F-35 is the Pentagon’s most expensive weapons program. Nonetheless, it is among those that Panetta has publicly identified as central to a strategy for maintaining American air dominance. According to defense officials, substantial budget savings will come from slowing — but not eliminating — programs. In the case of the F-35, Loren Thompson, defense analyst at the Lexington Institute, said there are no plans to cut the total number of fighters purchased — which is about 2,400. Instead, the intention is to reduce the number bought each year over the next five years. University of Georgia historian James Cobb, referring to the governors of Mississippi and Alabama who, five decades ago, defied efforts to integrate their states’ flagship universities. “But members of the younger generation, it doesn’t have that kind of connotation to them at all. And whether this is to some extent the fault of those of us who are supposed to be educating the younger generations about their past, I can’t say.” As Republicans prepared for the primary season, writer David Azerrad drafted a list of “New Year’s Resolutions for Conservatives.” No. 1 was “Speak of Federalism, not ‘States’ Rights.”’ “Not only is it incorrect to speak of states’ rights, but the expression has more baggage than Samsonite and Louis Vuitton combined,” Azerrad, assistant director of The Heritage Foundation’s B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics, wrote on the organization’s “Foundry” blog. “In case you didn’t know, ‘states’ rights’ was the rallying cry of segregationists. Since no rightthinking conservative will keep company with such people, let’s just drop the term states’ rights once and for all.”

In the final matchup of the night, Delphos picked up its second victory with a 60-18 win over the Spartans. Jefferson didn’t come away with its first win very easily as Greenville took a 24-15 lead after pinning two of the Wildcats wrestlers. The Wildcats were losing 36-27 going into the last three weight classes but pulled out the victory as Greenville had to forfeit the 182-, 195- and 220-pound weight classes.

Greenville. Jefferson had seven wrestlers pin their opponents in the Lima Senior match, including Gaige Rassman, Vermule, Truesdale, Aaron Parkins, Darren Edinger, Colin McConnahea and Wessell. “We still have to keep working and tonight was a couple of wins for us and that was good for the kids; they deserved it,” Delphos coach Mike Wilson said. “Some of the kids worked really hard tonight and kept fighting. We have one more tournament: the Northwest Conference meet; and then sectionals and that’s what we have been working for all year.” The Spartans fell in both matches but coach P.J. Fought saw some good things happen and is looking forward to sectionals coming up in three weeks. In the first matchup for the Spartans, 170-pound Alexander Wick pinned his opponent Nick Woodruff from Greenville in just 43 seconds to give six points to Lima Senior.

In the matchup against Delphos, Wick and Hunter Vermillion also pinned their opponents. “Tonight wasn’t really our best wrestling but we did better in the Jefferson match,” Fought added. “We need to pick it up at practice because it is getting closer to sectionals. We just have to strive to work harder because I keep telling the guys that it only gets harder from here on out.” Jefferson is schedule to be in the Carey Classic Feb. 4.

LIMA — The University of Northwestern Ohio women’s basketball team played host to conference foe Aquinas Wednesday night at “The Garage.” It came down to the end as the free-throw line proved decisive as the Lady Racers grabbed a 73-69 victory. The Racers came out playing some great defense and distributed the ball on the offensive side of the ball to take control in the early going of the contest. UNOH shot 36 percent from the field; however, they were 5-9 from behind the arc to really punish the Saints in the first half. Shaye Warman was hot as she totaled 11 points in the half alone as she converted 3-of-4 from behind the arc for the Racers. The home team also took advantage of its inside presence as they pounded the Saints inside, getting a lot of effort points down low. Coach Kyle Menchhofer thought that his team played exceptionally well Wednesday night: “Our defense played well tonight and really set the tone for us and we were able to get some easy buckets the other way. I also thought that our post players did a great job tonight battling down low and gave us some good minutes.” With a 37-35 lead at the half, the Racers came out of the locker room with the mindset of trying to open up the lead and take some pressure off of their young club. Both teams came out very aggressive and playing some great defense, really testing each other’s toughness. Rebecca Puckett and Kelsey Burton took over the game in the second half as their combined 27 points and defensive presence forced the Saints into some tough shots down low. As both teams swapped baskets late in the game, some big free throws by Warman sealed the deal. “With us being so young and having eight new faces on the team, we really just need to work on our strength and toughness as we go on with the season and try to make a tournament run,” Menchhofer added. “Our goal is to finish out the season strong and try to win the conference and get that automatic bid into the national tournament.” Leading the way for the Racers on the night was Puckett, who totaled a career-high 20 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double for the second straight night. Warman cashed in 17 points and Amanda Francis netted 18 points for the Lady Racers. With the win the Racers improve to 12-11 (6-5) on the year and will be back into

RICHMOND, Ind. - The Beavers struggled early at Earlham on Wednesday but erased a 16-point deficit in the last 11 minutes of the game to top the Quakers 73-72 in dramatic fashion. The victory pushed Bluffton to 12-6 overall and 6-5 in the Heartland Conference. Earlham stayed winless at 0-18 on the year (0-11 HCAC). The Quakers grabbed an early 3-point lead but a Josh Fisher (Rockford/Parkway) triple tied the score (4-4) 3-and-a-half minutes into the game. Less than 40 seconds later, Nate Heckelman (Norwalk) found Nick Lee (Mt. Blanchard/Vanlue) for a lay-up, giving the Beavers a 2-point lead. With 9:56 left in the

first half, Mychal Hill ended a 12-5 Quaker run with a 3-pointer, pulling the Beavers within six (18-12). Earlham then took off on another spurt, scoring 10 points to the Beavers three. Bluffton was able to halt the run with a trey when Josh Johnson (Ottawa/OttawaGlandorf) found Lee open on the perimeter, drawing the visitors to within 10 with 6:21 remaining. Two free throws from Johnson made it a 6-point game but the Quakers scored six unanswered points to end the half with a 39-27 lead. The Beavers found themselves down by 12 early in the second half but two free throws from Heckelman followed by a lay-up from Lee cut the deficit to eight with 1 7 : 0 1 remaining. Earlham answered the call, pushing the lead to 16 with just over 11 minutes remaining but it was all Beavers from there. Johnson started the comeback with a hoop and harm at the 10:48 mark. Will Pope (Somerville/Preble Shawnee) followed with a layup of his own, pulling the Beavers within 11 points of the lead. He drained two free throws a minute later then tallied two more counters on an offensive stickback, reducing the Quaker lead to just seven points with eight minutes left. After a Quaker basket, Lee hit a three with five minutes left. Earlham responded with a three from Colton Bragg but Lee fired one right back as Heckelman found him open behind the arc. Johnson hit Dustin Kinn (Alvada/New Riegal) under the basket for a layup at the 3:03 mark, trimming the Quaker lead to 69-64. Lee continued his torrid shooting with another three, making it a 2-point game with 1:45 to play. Johnson pulled the Beavers within one after hitting a pair of free throws with just over one minute remaining. Lee scored his 27th point of the night and gave the Beavers their first lead since early in the game after a steal and a layup with just 18 seconds left. Bragg answered for the Quakers, hitting a layup with seven seconds remaining. With only one second remaining in the game and his team down by one, Heckelman got to the rack for the game-winning deuce as Bluffton stunned the home crowd 73-72 while keeping the home team winless on the season. Lee finished with a game and career-high 27 points. The senior drilled 11-of18 from the field, including 5-of-7 from outside the arc. Johnson and Pope both turned in 10 points. Pope ripped down 10 boards for his fifth career double-double. Johnson just missed his first careeer double-double with eight caroms.

On the night, the Beavers shot 24-of-53 (45 percent) from the field, including 7-of-16 (43 percent) behind the arc and 18-of-26 (69 percent) from the charity stripe. Earlham connected on 26-of60 (43.3 percent) field goals, but just 7-of-28 (25 percent) from distance. The Beavers outrebounded the Quakers 39-31 but committed four more turnovers (13-9). Bluffton will take the court again on Saturday at Franklin. The tip is slated for 4 p.m. ----Bluffton sets school record with 5th straight HCAC win By Jordan Marbaugh Sports information assistant BLUFFTON — The Bluffton University women defeated Earlham College 69-61 on Wednesday. The Beavers improved to 7-11 and 5-6 in HCAC with their school-record fifth straight Heartland Conference win. Earlham slipped to 3-15 overall and 1-10 in the HCAC. Bluffton jumped out to a 6-0 lead just 41 seconds into the game on threes by Rachel Daman (Defiance/Tinora) and Brittany Stegmaier (Garfield/Trinity). At the 17-minute mark, the Beavers pushed the lead to 11-4. Bluffton continued to pour it on with a 12-4 run for a 23-8 advantage with 7:21 remaining in the first half. Another Daman three at the 4:31 mark gave the home team a lead of 30-15. Earlham heated up from the floor and closed the first period on a 13-2 spurt, trimming the Beaver lead to 32-28 at halftime. Daman and Stegmaier opened the second half just like they opened the game with back-to-back threes, pushing the home team’s lead back to 10 at the 19:07 mark. Earlham stayed within striking distance as the Bluffton lead was seven with 15:35 left in the game. A layup by Mikayla Coburn (McGuffey/Upper Scioto Valley) at the 11:25 mark made it a 13-point spread (48-35). A layup by Earlham’s Jalissa Watt closed the gap to 50-43 as Earlham went on an 8-2 run with 8:17 left. With 2:33 to play, Earlham cut the gap to six at 58-52. The teams exchanged a couple baskets and with 50 seconds left Bluffton was still up by a half dozen. Brittany Lewis (Springfield/ Shawnee) stepped to the line with 45 ticks remaining and knocked down both free throws. Earlham hit a three and then fouled Alicia Amis (Woodstock/ Mechanicsburg) with 20 seconds left. Amis split the pair, making it a seven-point game (66-59). Earlham answered with a quick layup and fouled Lewis again. The senior stepped to the line and calmly knocked down both free ones, sealing the 69-61 win for the Beavers.

We all bid farewell to one JIM METCALFE Joseph Vincent Paterno this week. I won’t go into the whole sordid mess that marked his last months on this mortal coil except to write one thing; jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com it has tarnished his legacy. I don’t presume to know what really went on during this whole mess that started all those years ago, what he did or didn’t do to stop or prevent the damage done to those children. We may never really know but I do believe that in the end, that is what got him. The lung cancer was just a “symptom”; a broken heart is what did him in. He came face to face with what he did or didn’t do and I truly believe he was sorry that he didn’t do more, that he didn’t make more noise, that he wasn’t more vociferous, that he didn’t rip Jerry Sandusky’s head off and roll it down the street. He came face to face with the pain that his assistant — even giving Mr. Sandusky the benefit of the doubt still leaves us with the knowledge that he was doing things he should not have been doing with these boys — and, well, he himself caused and his conscience, his soul, wouldn’t let him keep going. In a sense, I would be afraid if this WASN’T the case, that he had no conscience and it didn’t bother him. Don’t we all have that feeling sometime that we could have done more in a situation involving someone we loved — or simply knew — that didn’t turn out so well, even though we “did all we could”? I do agree with former players, especially Todd Blackledge, of how he felt after the school he gave so much to — that he “put on the map” — so quickly turned its back on him. I can understand why they did — these are heinous crimes we are talking about here and they could not NOT respond — but it sure as heck still hurts like heck, especially all the hemming and hawing they did in the process! I don’t believe he ultimately gave a rat’s rear end about his “legacy” — that will be for others to decide. What I know is that from now on, whenever his name is brought up, it will go something like this: “The coach who won more major college football games than anyone, who produced something like 250 players that played in the NFL and contributed so much to making Penn State what it is today athletically and academically ... but whose last year was marred and his coaching career finally ended by a child sex abuse scandal ...” No matter what happens from here on in regarding this case, good or ill, that will be his “true” epitaph and it is sad. It’s almost as if this will be his “middle name”. The image it conjures up for me is dropping the stone into the water and watching the waves — small though they may be — keep going and going and going. In the end, all we can ever really do is commend him to God and let Him figure it out. How would you like to be one Billy Cundiff? The MAN for the Baltimore Ravens who missed that chip-shot field goal that would have sent the AFC Championship game into overtime? Or San Francisco return man Kyle Williams who fumbled the punt in overtime that the New York Giants recovered and ended up kicking the game-winning field goal in the NFC title matchup? Cundiff didn’t offer an excuse: he had done this hundreds of times and just missed it. He could have blamed the wind, the hold, being in a rush (which even some pundits felt Harbaugh should have called time to make sure everyone was settled down) ... I can appreciate that. I also look at one Ray Lewis in a different light after hearing his post-game talk in the locker room. His main theme: we win as a team and we lose as a team. No matter what you may think of Mr. Lewis — the murder charges a decade ago, his thuggish image he has had — it seems that he has “grown up” into a leader. He does set the tone for that team. I am sure there are a few in that locker room — look at the replays of the players on the sidelines mouthing words like “oh my God” — that were “rightly” upset that Cundiff missed the kick but what Lewis told his teammates was spot on: THEY had lost the game. How many mistakes did each and every one of those guys make earlier in that game: the dropped TD pass by Lee Evans just two plays before that; missed blocks/tackles that allowed the New England Patriots to keep a drive going or stop a drive; etc., etc., etc. The same could be written about the 49ers versus the G-Men. How many plays should have been made but weren’t that “cost” the 49ers points? This is the fun part of the games we watch; we can sit here and analyze this until the cows come home thanks to YouTube and endless coverage. Unfortunately, most people will “only” remember those two plays. They won’t remember how Joe Flacco actually outplayed Tom Brady, for example, and Brady admitted that after the game.

JoePa: rest in peace

Patriots secondary still question mark vs. Giants
By HOWARD ULMAN The Associated Press FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Eli Manning could have a pretty clear view downfield against the hardly super secondary of the New England Patriots. Get ready, Julian Edelman. Here comes Victor Cruz. A young group including undrafted free agents, a Pro Bowl player in a sophomore slump and even a wide receiver was good enough to help beat Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens — barely — in the AFC championship game. The New York Giants and Manning, with his big-game experience and receivers Cruz and Hakeem Nicks, pose a tougher challenge in the Super Bowl on Feb. 5. “The Giants are playing like they’re the best team in the National Football League at this point,” former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison said Wednesday, “and Eli, he’s been fantastic and he will pick this secondary apart.” James Ihedigbo isn’t listening to the doubters. After three years as a special teams player for the New York Jets, he’s started the last 14 games at safety for the Patriots — with no interceptions all season. He is, Harrison said, a “serviceable” player but hard-working and team-oriented. “We have a saying, ‘All we got is us,’ and that’s how we play,” Ihedigbo said. “We play for each other.” Since the season began, 16 different defensive backs have played. The changes began in training camp when the Patriots released starting safeties Brandon Meriweather and James Sanders. Cutting Sanders, a smart leader, was “a big mistake” by coach Bill Belichick, according to Harrison. The Patriots allowed 70 completions of 20 yards or more, nearly 4 1/2 a game. But Belichick saw improvement after the midpoint of the season. “I don’t think that necessarily the work ethic or the desire or the competitiveness to do it has changed a lot but the results started to improve because of a little more continuity, a little better execution, better technique, more confidence,” he said. “It’s a group of guys and coaches that have worked hard and tried to get better on a daily basis and I think they have over the course of the season, more so in the last five or six weeks. “ The starters are Ihedigbo and cornerback Kyle Arrington, both undrafted, second-year cornerback Devin McCourty and safety Patrick Chung, who missed seven games with a foot injury before returning for the next-to-last game of the regular season. The backups are Edelman, Sterling Moore, Antwaun Molden, Nate Jones and Malcolm Williams. Edelman is the only one of those five who were with the Patriots last season and that was as a wide receiver and punt returner. The last time he played defensive back? “I think 1998,” he replied. “Pop Warner. I was 12.” Edelman had finished his junior season as a quarterback in 2007 at Kent State when the Patriots and Giants last met in the Super Bowl, where Manning was named MVP. David Tyree’s unforgettable catch, trapping the ball against his helmet while closely guarded by Harrison, set up the winning touchdown in New York’s 17-14 win. That was the last game for Harrison, now an analyst for NBC who spoke on a conference call. This year, there were missed tackles, poor communication and lack of physical play, Harrison said. The Patriots allowed 293.9 yards passing, second most during the regular season. Since their playoffs began with a 45-10 win over Denver, Harrison has seen the defensive backs competing harder and playing better. But their performances declined in
by an 82-72 margin to the Ravens. The host Anderson squad took the lead for good at 6-5 and stayed in front over the final 37:22 of action, leading by as many as 21 points in the second half. Defiance closed the game on a 17-6 spurt over the final 6:14 of action but fell short in its comeback bid. Anderson (9-9, 5-6 HCAC) had its way in the paint, pulling down 18 offensive rebounds en route to a 31-13 gap in secondchance points in the contest. For the game, DC was beaten on the boards by a 45-26 mark. Another key disparity came at the free-throw line, where Defiance did not attempt a free throw until the 7:08 mark of the final period and ended the game with only two makes from the charity stripe. The host squad countered by getting to the line 20 times in the game and connecting on 18 of those tries for a 16-point spread. Ryan Hicks turned in one of his finest performances of the year in the losing effort, ending with 12 points, nine rebounds, three blocks, a pair of steals and one assist in 29 minutes of work. Other contributors included Logan Wolfrum’s 15 points, five assists, two blocks and two steals and Anthony Brown, who chipped in 14 points and four boards. Defiance (7-11, 3-8 HCAC) heads to Lexington, Ky., on

The Herald — 7

the 23-20 victory over the Ravens. Moore, a rookie who had been cut earlier in the season, swiped the ball out of Lee Evans’ hands in the end zone with 22 seconds left. “That play, that’s our season,” Ihedigbo said. “That’s everything that we worked for right there and he knocks that ball out of the receiver’s hands.” Moore followed that by breaking up a pass to Dennis Pitta at the 3-yard line with 15 seconds remaining. Then Billy Cundiff hooked a 32-yard field goal attempt. “I can’t say enough (about Moore),” Ihedigbo said. “He played phenomenal down there at the end.” But Moore was the culprit on a 29-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith with 3:38 left in the third quarter as the Ravens took a 17-16 lead. Flacco threw to Smith in the right flat and immediately spun past Moore, attempting to make the tackle. And Edelman, a physical player working hard to learn a new position, did a poor job on slot receiver Anquan Boldin for gains of 29 and 9 yards on Baltimore’s final drive. In the Super Bowl, he may guard Cruz. But the Patriots still won. And despite their shortcomings, they’re taking a 10-game winning streak into the Super Bowl
Helmet catch will forever define Tyree’s career EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Manning took home the MVP. Plaxico Burress had the game-winning catch. David Tyree got the biggest prize in the 2008 Super Bowl — an unforgettable moment that forever will be his. No play in the New York Giants’ 17-14 victory over the New England Patriots has been shown more than Tyree’s fourth-quarter catch of a ball against his helmet with defender Harrison draped over him. It led to Manning’s last-minute touchdown pass to Burress and changed Tyree’s life. The New Jersey native became a hero in the New York metropolitan area, earned up to $15,000 per appearance fees, made numerous television and radio appearances and wrote a book. “The truth of it was I was never going to have a moment ever in my career that was going to eclipse that,” Tyree said in a conference call about what is known as “The Catch” in Giants’ history. “It gave me a sense of peace as far as moving on and knowing I had a career that I can be satisfied with.

College

“It’s not about the money; it’s about, for me, having a moment that transcends my own personal career, to be a part of Giants history, NFL history, Super Bowl history. That’s something that most people who’ve had far better careers than myself never had.” A sixth-round draft pick out of Syracuse by the Giants in 2003, Tyree didn’t do much after the Super Bowl. He hurt his knee and missed the following season, and spent his last year with Baltimore, failing to make a catch. He retired in 2010 after signing a 1-day contract with the Giants. Off the field, Tyree has turned around his life. His days of drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana are long behind him and he has become a born-again Christian. The 32-year-old father of six serves as the director of strategic partnerships at Tepidus Group, a company involved in wealth management, marketing and philanthropic ventures. He is also writing another book with his wife, Leilah, that intends to “challenge the core of our culture.” One thing they will address, he said is “how we esteem people who are in the limelight and have been given pedestals and platforms.” Tyree also is the senior vice president of the International Children’s Support Foundation, which tries to improve the lives of children. The Pro Bowl special teams player also isn’t afraid to express his religious beliefs. He has come out against same-sex marriages and has been criticized by many. Tyree plans to attend the Super Bowl next week. Tyree has watched the Giants (127) current run to a Super Bowl rematch with the Patriots and he marvels at the similarities, calling them spooky. New York has once again made a late-season rush and done its most damage in the postseason on the road, knocking off the defending champion Green Bay Packers in the NFC division round and the San Francisco 49ers in the conference title game. After the 2007 regular season, the Giants won all their playoff games on the road, winning at Tampa, Dallas and Green Bay. Placekicker Lawrence Tynes made game-winning field goals in overtime both conference championship games. Tyree had three catches in the Super Bowl, including one for a touchdown. The one everybody remembers is the 32-yarder on a third-and-5 play with 1:15 to play and the Giants trailing the then-unbeaten Patriots 14-10. Manning avoided a big pass rush and lofted a long pass down the middle. Tyree leapt, got his hands on the ball, then pinned it against his helmet, first with one hand and then the other. All the while, Harrison was pulling Tyree to the ground by the arm. Harrison said Wednesday that the only time he thought about the play was when his son gave him a book for Christmas a couple of years ago with a picture of the play on the front cover. “It’s in my office,” Harrison added. “Every time I walk in my office I see it so I’m reminded of it every single day. “But it doesn’t haunt me. It’s something that happened, you know. It’s almost funny because I look back at my career and I started thinking, do I have any regrets? And I don’t really have any regrets because I played hard, I played tough, I played physical and you ask this guy to make this catch a million other times, he doesn’t make it. So it’s just one of those things that you look at and say, ‘wow, you know what? No matter what I could have done, he was going to catch that ball. It was just meant to happen’.”

Nadal tops Federer in Australian Open semifinal
By DENNIS PASSA The Associated Press MELBOURNE, Australia — Rafael Nadal outlasted Roger Federer 6-7 (5), 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4 in an Australian Open semifinal tonight, the long-time rivals playing with the intensity normally displayed when meeting in a Grand Slam final. The stars who met in eight Grand Slam finals were on the same side of the draw for the first time at a major since 2005. Two weeks ago, Nadal injured his right knee and wasn’t sure he’d be able to start the tournament. Now, he can barely believe he’s in the final. Nadal will have the opportunity to win another championship on Sunday night when the Spanish left-hander plays the winner of the semifinal Friday between defending champion Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. Earlier today, Maria Sharapova overcame Petra Kvitova to advance to the women’s final against Victoria Azarenka. Sharapova broke Kvitova’s serve in the last game to finish off a 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 victory and the third-seeded Azarenka beat defending champion Kim Clijsters 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 to set up a Saturday night final at Rod Laver Arena that will decide the No. 1 ranking. Nadal, who holds a 6-2 edge in Grand Slam finals against Federer, made the key service break in the ninth game of the fourth set, making an incredible cross-court forehand winner from well behind the baseline, then watching as Federer hit a backhand wide to give Nadal a 5-4 lead. Serving for the match, Nadal moved two points away from the win when Federer sent a backhand long. He won on his second match point when Federer floated a forehand long. At the end, Nadal smashed a ball up high in the stadium, almost clearing the roof. He then applauded along with the crowd when Federer walked off. The 25-year-old Spaniard won the 2009 Australian title but lost in the quarterfinals in his next two trips to Melbourne Park. Federer hasn’t added to his record 16 Grand Slam titles since he won the 2010 Australian Open. When the often enthralling play was suspended for 10 minutes late in the second set for an Australian Day fireworks display, Federer seemed to be affected most. Nadal led 5-2 at the time and Federer lost his

(Continued from Page 6) Stegmaier continued her recent string of double digits with 16 points and four rebounds. Daman dropped in 14 and had four assists. Lewis chipped in with nine points, four assists and four rebounds. Amis added seven points, six rebounds and two helpers. Kylee Burkholder (West Unity/ Hilltop) came off the bench and grabbed eight boards while scoring four points. Also off the bench, Coburn had six points and grabbed four boards. Bluffton hit 20-of-53 (37.7 percent) from the field, compared to 25-of-63 (39.7 percent) for the Quakers. The Beavers connected on five more treys (9-4) while also taking advantage of the free throw line. Bluffton finished 20-of-26 (76.9 percent) at the stripe, while Earlham went to the line just 10 times (7-of-10). The home team had a slim 39-38 edge on the glass. Beavers are back in action Saturday when they travel to Franklin for a 2 p.m. tip. The Grizzlies stand 17-1 overall and tied with Hanover for first in the HCAC at 10-1. ----DC men overpowered in road loss at Anderson ANDERSON, Ind. – Defiance College placed four players in double figures but was no match for the interior strength of Anderson on Wednesday evening, falling

Saturday to tangle with leagueleading Transylvania Pioneers (16-2, 10-1 HCAC) in a 3:00 pm tip. ---King’s 18 points leads Jackets to victory over Anderson DEFIANCE — Sophomore Erica King poured in 18 points on five-of-nine shooting to help the Defiance College women’s basketball team to a 62-54 victory over Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference opponent Anderson University. The Jackets improve to 6-5 in the HCAC with the win. Defiance and Anderson traded baskets for the opening seven minutes of action as neither side led by more than four points. Anderson held a 10-9 lead with 12:39 remaining in the opening half, but it was the last time the visiting Ravens would see the lead. A free throw by King leveled the game at 10-10 and a layup by junior Kim Comden pushed the Jackets into the lead for good. Defiance captured the lead as part of a 14-2 run that started at the 10:19 mark and ended with 4:37 left in the half. Comden did most of the damage during the run with six points, while King added four. Senior Brooke Zachrich and sophomore Kim Bingley finished the run with one layup each. The Yellow Jackets steadily build momentum over the rest

of the first half and entered the break with a 30-17 advantage. The second half was more of the same from DC, as the Yellow Jackets pushed the lead to 17 points, 39-22, on a threepointer from Rachel Ciminillo with 16:29 left in the contest. The Ravens answered with a short 8-4 run to bring the deficit to 13 points, 43-30. An 8-1 run by DC from the 5:51 mark to 2:47 gave the Yellow Jackets a commanding 19-point lead. A late push by Anderson was not enough as the Purple and Gold went on to win 62-54. King added two rebounds and two assists to go along with her 18 points in 27 minutes of action. Comden barely missed a double-double with 14 points and nine rebounds. Bingley scored nine points and chipped in with five rebounds, while Ciminillo scored seven points, dished out two assists and grabbed three steals. Anderson, which falls to 6-12 overall and 3-8 in the conference, was paced by 12 points from Ashley Wuestefeld. With the victory, the Yellow Jackets improve to 8-10 overall and 6-5 in the league. As a team, DC shot 22-of-54 overall, five-of-nine from deep and 13-of-15 from the charity stripe. Defiance returns to action Saturday at Transylvania. Tipoff is 1 p.m. in Lexington.
serve in the next game to give the Spaniard the set. In all, the Swiss dropped 11 points in a row. The capacity, 15,000-strong crowd was evenly split in its support, with the names seeming to blur after the R in rival chants. Each time somebody called out for Rafa, it was met by a response for Roger. The cheers were just as loud for Nadal’s scrambling, sometimes astonishing, passing shots as for Federer’s deft winners. With the players on serve in the second set, Nadal went so far wide on a Federer return that he was near the side wall of the arena. Incredibly, he stretched wide and returned the ball crosscourt for a winner. That set up three break points and Nadal clinched the game to take a 4-2 lead in the second set.

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 2012 Circumstances in the year ahead could produce many more opportunities than ever to fulfill several of your important ambitions. With the blueprint already in your mind, all you have to do is manifest it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -There is a strong possibility that you might experience a rather unusual turn of events. When trying to help out another, the party in question could end up doing more for you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Big rewards could come in small packages, so don’t be too quick to reject a job that doesn’t pay well. If you do good work, much more is likely to be in the pipeline. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You’re not only quick on you feet, you’re fast when working with your brain as well. Don’t let anyone set the pace for you -- disengage yourself from others and operate on you own. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Because you’ll be able to handle most any dilemma with deduction and intuition, you should resolve a problem with accuracy and lightning speed. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Get out and mingle. Not only will you enjoy doing so, you’re likely to meet someone new with whom you could form an instant bond and maybe even a lifelong friendship. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Several unique opportunities having to do with your work or career might present themselves. However, the chance to take advantage of them is fleeting, so don’t shilly-shally. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Follow your inclinations if someone is constantly on your mind. There could be some very good reasons why you need to touch base with this person soon. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Your ability to pick up on the thoughts of others and use them in advantageous ways will come in handy. Keep one eye on the zeitgeist, and the other on the bottom line. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -You’re likely to get an opportunity to win someone important over to your side by objectively discussing a matter with him or her that is of mutual concern and interest. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A little brainstorming with some of your co-workers could pay off in spades. Some rather ingenious ideas for increasing productivity and lowering stress could be the result. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Unusual circumstances could once again involve you with someone whom you recently met who you’d like to get to know better. You’ll find that you have much in common. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An important matter can be resolved to your satisfaction, but it might require the full use of your imagination and resourcefulness. Happily, these are two of your best assets.

Scrubbing face does not lead to cleaner skin
DEAR DOCTOR K: I wash my face very little because I’ve heard that soaps, even mild ones, dry out the skin. What do you think? DEAR READER: Most facial skin is quite sturdy. It has many pores and heals quickly. But as you get older, you start to see the effects on your face of chronic exposure to the environment. The skin thins and becomes less elastic. It develops more pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and more prominent freckles. Excessive cleansing of the skin with soap and water or solvents can lead to redness and dryness. However, this problem usually affects the hands, not the face. Washing your face, even if you do it fairly often, shouldn’t cause a problem unless you have an underlying disorder, such as eczema. How often is too often? I don’t think it’s ever been carefully studied in a large number of people. Obviously, the time to wash your face is when it gets dirty, as in following a meal, or if you are working outside in the dirt and sun and getting sweaty. But for someone who is indoors most of the time, in cool air, it’s hard to imagine why washing the face more often than a few times a day

true of rough washcloths and I had a patient who scrubbed the skin of her face so forcefully, and so often, that she got nearly as red as an apple. She told me she was doing it so that the old, tired skin cells would be stripped away and replaced by “young” skin cells. There’s a measure of truth to that: Many effective “skin rejuvenation” creams work on that principle. But don’t get carried away. If you badly irritate the skin of your face, you’ve gone too far. Regardless of the type of soap you use, or how you use it, it’s best to use warm, not hot, water. Hot water can leach protective oils out of your skin and is no better at removing dirt. Too much of a good thing can be bad. We have more information on caring for your skin in our Special Health Report, “Skin Care and Repair.” You can find out more about it at my website.

would be necessary. It’s a good idea, however, to be careful about what you wash your face with. Washing with just water is usually not sufficient because dirt sticks to the skin. Besides, many people need some type of cleanser because they have oily skin. Using regular soap is fine in many cases. But soap is alkaline, so it can be irritating even to normal skin, which tends to be slightly acidic. Synthetic soaps -- often identified on the package as being “soap-free” -- are a better choice for some. That’s because their pH is closer to that of normal skin. The synthetic products are definitely worth a try if your skin is reacting badly to regular soap. Facial scrubs that clean and remove the outer layer of skin are OK, but I’ve seen many patients who use them so enthusiastically that their skin gets irritated. The same is

Ask Mr. Know-it-All
By Gary Clothier

‘Paddle-to-the-Sea’ a delightful book for all
Q: In 1949, when I attended third grade in Coalgate, Okla., our teacher read us a story about an Indian boy carving a toy canoe and putting it on a snowbank. When the snow melted, the canoe slipped into a stream on its way to the ocean. As I remember, several people found the canoe, took it home, cleaned it up, and put it back in the river where they found it. Can you tell me the name of the story? Who wrote it? Where can I get a copy? -J.H., Angleton, Texas A: The name of the book is “Paddle-to-the-Sea” by Holling C. Holling. Written in 1941, the story features an Indian boy from landlocked Nipigon country in the Canadian wilderness who carves a figure in a 12-inch canoe that he names Paddleto-the-Sea, a journey the young boy wishes he could make himself. The boat begins in a snowbank near a river that eventually leads to the Great Lakes, the St. Lawrence River and finally to the Atlantic Ocean. There are dangers along the way, and people do find the boat but return it to the water so it can continue its journey. The book was made into a film of the same name in 1966 and released a few years ago on DVD. Both the book and movie are available at Amazon.com. Q: I watched the 2011 G r a m m y Awards and enjoyed the performance of Bob Dylan. How old is he? Also, when was Kris Bob Dylan Kristofferson born? -- L.M., Franklin, Ky. A: Robert A l l e n Zimmerman, better known as Bob Dylan, entered the world on May 24, 1941. Kris Kristoffer Kristofferson Kristofferson’s date of birth: June 22, 1936. Q: I’m curious to know what happened to two movies I enjoyed long ago. One is “Games,” from 1967; the other is a TV movie from the 1980s, whose title I believe was “Vanished.” Both had major stars in their casts, yet neither has shown up on DVD. “Games” featured Simone Signoret, James Caan and Katharine Ross, while “Vanished” starred Elliott Gould, Mike Farrell and Margot Kidder. Both movies were intriguing mysteries with interesting twists. So what happened (or didn’t) to them? -- B.W., Long Pond, Pa. A: You are right with your facts about the movie

“Games.” In the film, Simone Signoret’s character -- a cosmetics saleswoman named Lisa -- supposedly has psychic abilities. Critics called it a “twisty thriller.” The second movie is “Vanishing Act” (1986); again, you have correctly named the stars. One critic said, “This is about as good as a TV movie can get.” They are both available on VHS. Amazon.com sells them, while Netflix has “Games” on instant view. Q: I have long been aware of the statement “What this country needs is a good fivecent cigar.” Who said it? -Y.N., Lee’s Summit, Mo. A: Thomas Riley Marshall, vice president under Woodrow Wilson for two consecutive terms, uttered those famous words. In response, someone said, “Our country has plenty of good five-cent cigars.

Funeral service for Paterno as thousands mourn
By GENARO C. ARMAS Associated Press STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Quiet mourners lined the route of Joe Paterno’s funeral procession Wednesday, watching with grief and reverence as the electric-blue hearse carrying the Penn State coach’s casket slowly drove by. Some took pictures with their cell phones, or waved to his widow. Others craned their necks hoping for a better glimpse through the crowd sometimes four deep or more. The private funeral and burial service capped another emotional day for a campus and community pained over Paterno’s death from lung cancer Sunday at age 85, and over the way his stellar career ended — being fired by university trustees Nov. 9 in the wake of child sex-abuse charges against a former assistant. Thousands of students, alumni and fans took to the streets in and around Penn State to say their last goodbyes to the football coach who grew into a beloved figure in Happy Valley, not only for his five undefeated seasons but for his love of the school and his generosity. “He cared about the kids. He wanted to see us succeed. So for a lot of us, he became a grandfather-like figure,” Jordan Derk, a senior from York, said after the procession went past Beaver Stadium. “He loved us and we loved him back,” Derk said. “So saying goodbye is very tough.” Jay Paterno, the coach’s son and quarterbacks coach, sent a message to the mourners By BARRY MASSEY Associated Press via Twitter. “Thank you to all the people who turned out for my father’s procession,” he wrote. “Very moving.” The elder Paterno won two national titles and a Division I record 409 games over 46 seasons as head coach. His cancer was disclosed just nine days after he was forced to leave the football program he had worked with since 1950. But Wednesday was once again a salute to Paterno’s life and accomplishments. The service, a Roman Catholic Mass, was attended by a veritable who’s who of Penn State and Paterno connections. Paterno’s family arrived about an hour before the funeral service on two blue school buses, the same kind the coach and his team rode to home games on fall Saturdays. His wife of nearly six decades, Sue, sat in the seat traditionally reserved for her husband and was first off the bus, followed by Jay. Former defensive coordinator Tom Bradley walked to the service with NFL great Franco Harris. Also in attendance were other ex-NFL players including Matt Millen and Todd Blackledge, both now TV analysts. Nike founder Phil Knight and actor William Baldwin were there, too. “Today’s Mass was a celebration. We laid to rest a great man,” Bradley said. “Not so much for the football victories ... He meant so much to so many people.” Charles Pittman, who played for Paterno in the 1960s, also was at the Mass. “It really focused on the type of person Joe Paterno was — his devotion to his family, his wife, his grandkids,” said Pittman, a senior vice president for publishing at Schurz Communications Inc., an Indiana-based company that owns television and radio stations and newspapers, and a member of the Board of Directors of The Associated Press. A family spokesman, Dan McGinn, said Paterno’s grandchildren escorted the casket down the aisle during the opening procession, and again at the end of the service. Jay Paterno and his brother, Scott, were among the pallbearers. In between, during the service, all of Paterno’s children spoke except for Jay, who is scheduled to talk at a campus memorial service today at the Jordan Center. Two of Paterno’s 17 grandchildren also talked and shared the favorite moments collected among the rest of the grandkids — including one instance when Paterno mistakenly drove over a bicycle after returning home from work. Former defensive tackle Anthony Adams, who carried a program with a black-and-white picture of a smiling Paterno on the cover, said the service was befitting of his former coach, who loved to be surrounded by family and just talk. On the other hand, Paterno also was notorious for trying to avoid the spotlight himself. “He would’ve been embarrassed. He would’ve hated it,” Millen said. “He would’ve told us to shut up already. I guarantee it.” Paterno didn’t focus on the scandal that led to his stunning ouster, Scott Paterno has said, and neither did mourners. Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant coach at the center of the abuse scandal, has been

charged with molesting 10 boys over a period of 15 years. He has pleaded not guilty and is out on bail, awaiting trial. Paterno was criticized in the days after Sandusky’s arrest for not going to authorities outside campus when he was told of an allegation against the retired assistant in 2002. Paterno did notify two of his superiors at Penn State. Mike McQueary, the then-graduate assistant who told Paterno about the alleged assault, went both to the public viewing and the funeral. Also at the service was former athletic director Tim Curley, who along with former university official Gary Schultz, is charged with perjury and failure to notify authorities about the 2002 allegation. They melted into the crowd on a day when Paterno was the center of attention. “The things he did for athletes, the things he did for all students actually — that alone earns our respect to say one final goodbye,” said Alex Jimenez, a sophomore from Manapalan, N.J., standing directly across from Paterno Library. The procession went right past the library to which the Paterno family has donated millions of dollars. And the procession rolled past Beaver Stadium, the 100,000-plus seat facility that Paterno helped turn into a college football landmark. Thousands watched in silence there until the convoy reached “Paternoville,” the makeshift campground outside the stadium used by students the week before games. There, as the procession slowed nearly to a stop to negotiate a curve, someone in the throng screamed, “We are .” “Penn State!” came the crowd’s reply.

Egypt

SANTA FE, N.M. — Dozens of the same business and residential addresses were used repeatedly by people to obtain driver’s licenses in New Mexico in a pattern that suggests fraud by immigrants trying to game the system, an Associated Press investigation has found. In one instance, 48 foreign nationals claimed to live at a smoke shop in Albuquerque to get a license. In another case, more than a dozen claimed to live at an automotive repair shop over a one-year period. The scenario has been repeated at other addresses since New Mexico changed its law in 2003 to allow illegal immigrants to get the same driver’s license as a U.S. citizen — one of just two states allowing that. Republican Gov. Susana Martinez is pressing the Legislature to scrap the law because of public safety concerns about widespread fraud. She contends New Mexico has become a magnet for out-of-state immigrants seeking a license, which can be used to board airplanes, conduct financial transactions or get another license in some other state. The governor’s proposal will be considered by a legislative committee today. Having an address in New Mexico is a critical part of getting a license. Applicants without a Social Security number must prove their identity with multiple documents such as a passport or notarized English translation of a foreign birth certificate. They also must show New Mexico residency with other documents, including property lease agreements, utility bills and bank statements. Of the more than 90,000 licenses issued so far to foreign nationals, it’s impossible to know how many are illegal immigrants because the state doesn’t ask a person’s immigration status. The AP analyzed license data since 2003 and found a striking pattern at addresses across the state that suggests the license system is being abused.

City workers battle two water main breaks Wednesday

City workers battled two water main breaks Wednesday. The first was reported on North Main Street between Second and Third streets Wednesday morning. Crews started working at 9 a.m. and finished around 11:30 a.m. The second break occurred on Ninth Street near Craig Street at approximately 3:30 p.m. Crews finished at 7:30 p.m. According to Water Superintendent Tim Williams, a water main break is repaired using a special clamp. Workers have to dig down to the water line and then fit the clamp around it and work it to the break. He estimated 100,000 gallons of water was lost between the two breaks.

Studies: Avastin may fight early breast cancers
By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer Surprising results from two new studies may reopen debate about the value of Avastin for breast cancer. The drug helped make tumors disappear in certain women with early-stage disease, researchers found. Avastin recently lost approval for treating advanced breast cancer, but the new studies suggest it might help women whose disease has not spread so widely. These were the first big tests of the drug for early breast cancer, and doctors were cautiously excited that it showed potential to help. In one study, just over one third of women given Avastin plus chemotherapy for a few months before surgery had no sign of cancer in their breasts when doctors went to operate, versus 28 percent of women given chemo alone. In the other study, more than 18 percent on Avastin plus chemo had no cancer in their breasts or lymph nodes at surgery versus 15 percent of those on chemo alone. A big caveat, though: The true test is whether Avastin improves survival, and it’s too soon to know that — both studies are still tracking the women’s health. The drug also has serious side effects. “I don’t think it’s clear yet whether this is going to be a winner,” Dr. Harry Bear of Virginia Commonwealth University said of Avastin. But he added, “I don’t think we’re done with it.” Bear led one study, in the United States. Dr. Gunter von Minckwitz of the University of Frankfurt led the other in Germany. Results are in today’s New England Journal of Medicine. Avastin (uh-VAS’-tihn) is still on the market for some colon, lung, kidney and brain tumors. In 2008, it won conditional U.S. approval for advanced breast cancer because it

puters and boxes of files and interrogated staff members. The U.S. and the U.N. denounced the raids, but the Egypt defended them as part of a legitimate investigation into whether the groups were operating legally in Egypt. Posner, who was in Cairo as part of a regional tour, did not give specifics about the Americans who have been barred from leaving Egypt, but he linked it to cases being investigated by Egyptian courts. He spoke of the “difficult environment” for non-governmental organizations in Egypt and called on authorities to “redress this situation.” “All need to have the ability to operate freely, not constrained by the content of their work,” he said. Posner also pointed to recent U.S. legislation requiring Egypt to verify certain benchmarks during its transition to democracy in order to continue to receive American aid. The future of American aid to Egypt has come under greater scrutiny since Mubarak was forced out of power on Feb. 11 after 18-days of mass protests last year. A council of top generals has ruled the country since, and the country’s first elected parliament since the uprising was seated this week. Its domination by Islamists has raised concerns in some circles that the new government could seek changes in Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel.
