Military moms send T.L.C. overseas
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com LIMA — Any parent with a child in the armed forces will say it’s not easy to sit calmly at home while a son or daughter is risking his or her life. Barb Kline of Delphos, with her son Jeremy and her daughter Christa enlisted in the Army National Guard, does her part by collecting supplies and donations for care packages. At the Army National Guard Armory in Lima on Saturday morning, Kline and a group of other volunteers packed up the supplies to send overseas. “I’ve been collecting supplies to ship over for the last two months and have been trying to collect donations for postage and things. I’m in charge of that,” she said. Some of the supplies to be sent over include daily necessities like hygiene products, snacks, single-serving beverages, gift cards and linens. The idea of a care package is to provide loved ones in faraway places with a little piece of home. Kline says being around people who understand her situation helps her get through it. “Jeremy has been in the guard for four years and Christa for three. When I heard they would be shipping out, I got involved with the Family Readiness Group,” she said. “It’s good to have people around you who know what it’s like and who understand. It’s nerve-wracking.” While Kline will never be comfortable with her two oldest children overseas, she is happy they have each other. “It’s really scary but they have each other,” she said. “Jeremy is in Afghanistan and Christa is waiting for a flight over there now. It’s good they will be together and they will have someone to talk to and to hug if they need it.” Kline has four other children besides Jeremy and Christa, one in college and the rest at home. “None of them have expressed an interest in signing up yet, thank God,” she laughed. Anyone wishing to donate funds or supplies can contact Kline at bakline06@gmail. com.

Ottoville begins fundraising for new park playground equipment
Information submitted OTTOVILLE — The Ottoville Mother’s Club has kicked off a campaign to raise money for new playground equipment at Ottoville Park. The club will team up with other local organizations, businesses and individuals to work on the project. The only source of park funding is the annual Park Carnival. Since that money is needed to fund new sidewalks, a parking lot and ball field improvements, additional fundraising will be necessary for playground equipment. Preliminary research estimates a large piece of equipment would cost approximately $87,000. This new equipment would replace the park’s 25-yearold “Mother Lode Mine” and help update the park with newer playground equipment, drawing more families and children to downtown Ottoville. Eventually, additional funds could be raised to place adult exercise equipment around the perimeter of the playground so adults can also enjoy the facilities. Several fundraising events are planned: — From 8 p.m. to midnight on Feb. 25, a 70s/80s Party; — For young girls, a Princess Party will be held from 2-4 p.m. on March 4; — For fitness enthusiasts, a spring 5K Fun Run & Tot Trot has been planned for April 14.

CDC: Too many kids breathe others’ smoke in cars
By LINDSEY TANNER The Associated Press CHICAGO — Texting while driving, speeding and back-seat hanky-panky aren’t all that parents need to worry about when their kids are in cars: Add secondhand smoke to the list. In the first national estimate of its kind, a report from government researchers says more than 1 in 5 high school students and middle schoolers ride in cars while others are smoking. This kind of secondhand smoke exposure has

been linked with breathing problems and allergy symptoms, and more restrictions are needed to prevent it, the report says. With widespread crackdowns on smoking in public, private places including homes and cars are where people encounter secondhand smoke these days. Antismoking advocates have zeroed in on cars because of research showing they’re potentially more dangerous than smoke-filled bars and other less confined areas. See SMOKE, page 2

OTTOVILLE — The State Highway Patrol says a 17-yearold girl from Rockford died after she swerved off a county road toward a pond and her vehicle became submerged. The crash happened late Saturday near Ottoville. Troopers say Brianna Coon made a frantic call for help using her cellphone but searchers who traced the signal had trouble determining the vehicle’s exact location. A trooper found a hubcap near the pond about two hours after the crash, and the girl was in the car when it was pulled from the water. Troopers are investigating what happened. They don’t believe alcohol was a factor, and they say the girl had been wearing a seat belt.

(Continued from page 1)

The research, from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was released online today in Pediatrics. The study is based on national surveys done at public and private high schools and middle schools. Students were asked how often they rode in cars while someone was smoking within the past week. The most common answer was one or two days. The smoker could mean other kids or parents; the study didn’t specify. A CDC fact sheet suggests even small amounts of secondhand smoke can be risky. “There is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke,” the CDC says. Overall, 22 percent of teens and pre-teens were exposed to secondhand smoke in cars in

2009, the latest data available. That figure declined gradually during the decade, from 40 percent in 2000, the study found. But still, the numbers of kids still facing the risks “is certainly problematic,” said CDC researcher Brian King, the study’s lead author. “The car is the only source of exposure for some of these children, so if you can reduce that exposure, it’s definitely advantageous for health,” King said. The CDC advises parents to not allow smoking in their homes and cars, and says opening a car window will not protect kids from cigarette smoke inside. Measures banning smoking in cars when children are present have been enacted in a handful of states and proposed in several others. The study authors say similar bans should be adopted elsewhere.

YWCA seeking mentors
The YWCA Transitional Living Program is seeking volunteers for the Women Empowering Women Mentoring Program. The program is the primary comprehensive transitional program in Van Wert, Mercer, and Paulding counties serving women and women with children who are homeless with safe, housing and support. The YWCA works with each resident to develop the confidence and skills necessary to achieve the highest possible level of independence. The YWCA seeks to empower women and surround them with other positive influences. The mentoring program is designed to help achieve this goal. All those participating in the Transitional Living Program could use another positive member of their support team. Ideally, mentors could

The Humane Society of Allen County continues to serve the community with an animal food voucher program. Since the program was introduced in November, eligible participants pre-screened by the West Ohio Food Bank have redeemed an average of 57.5 vouchers a month. An estimated 4,350 pounds of dog food and 2,137 pounds of cat food have been distributed each month at the Humane Society of Allen County. The need to provide food to men, women and children in West Central Ohio continues to grow annually. The Humane Society of Allen County knows that hunger has no limit to just humans and many area animals also go without proper nourishment. “Our goal is to assist community members so they can also provide a meal for their pet,” said board member Helen Miller. The Humane Society of Allen County asks that area citizens and businesses support the animal food voucher program with a financial contribution. Donations can be dropped off at the Humane Society of Allen County during adoptions hours or by mailing the shelter at PO Box 1666, Lima Ohio 45802. The shelter is open to the public during adoption hours from 3-7 p.m. on Thursdays and from noon to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio school and government officials are joining small business owners alarmed by a jump in their bills from American Electric Power. An AEP spokesman tells The Columbus Dispatch higher rates took effect a couple of weeks after state regulators approved them in December. He says the company didn’t have time to warn customers and has received more than 100 complaints. The treasurer for LoganHocking schools in Hocking County says the district was blindsided when its electric bill increased 30 percent last month to more than $51,000. He says the district might have to cut jobs to balance its budget. posal to eradicate a tree-killing beetle in southwest Ohio by cutting down thousands of trees, including those that may not be infested, has concerned property owners fighting for methods that would preserve healthy trees. More than 6,000 trees in Clermont County east of Cincinnati are infested with Asian longhorned beetles, and more than 2,500 have been cut down as surveys and tree removal continue, according to the Ohio Department of Agriculture. It’s partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to keep the beetles from spreading to other parts of Ohio. The Bethel ALB Citizens’ Cooperative was formed after potential host trees within certain distances of those that were infested, cooperative member Bill Skvarla said. “We knew they were planning to cut down more than 5,000 trees, but removing healthy trees too could mean taking down 50,000 to 100,000,” he said. The state wants to protect as many healthy trees as possible while still containing the bugs, agriculture department spokeswoman Erica Pitchford said. Skvarla, who found the infestation in June in some of his maple trees, has lost 14 trees and expects to lose many more. He said the cooperative supports the removal of infested trees.

COLUMBUS — He’s fresh off a bruising fight and ultimate defeat over the rights of unionized public workers. His approval ratings among voters are low. And some fellow Republicans in the Legislature have grumbled openly over Gov. John Kasich’s decision to move his State of the State speech outside the capital to eastern Ohio. Against this backdrop, Kasich lays out his secondyear agenda Tuesday — one focused on education and the economic promise of oil and natural gas drilling. Political experts say moving the speech to an elementary school in Steubenville allows Kasich to reconnect with the public after last fall’s bitter collective bargaining battle. He has said he wants to uplift the once-proud steel valley by turning public attention on its assets. But the decision also miffed some lawmakers — including a handful in his own party, whose support is necessary to push his policies through the state Legislature. Besides requiring drives of more than four hours in some cases, the relocation was criticized by some as disrespecting an honored state tradition. Kasich is believed to be the first governor in Ohio history to give his address outside the Statehouse. The move is also an inconvenience to other Columbusbased dignitaries who traditionally attend. Attorney General Mike DeWine has said he can’t make the speech. Secretary

of State Jon Husted has a schedule conflict he’s trying to work out. Both are fellow Republicans. The GOP-controlled Ohio Supreme Court also won’t be there because court is in session that day. Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols said the governor is dedicated to the unconventional venue. He said this year’s speech will reach a larger audience than ever. The school’s auditorium holds more people than the House chamber, so 50 members of the public received tickets to attend through a lottery. Government and public television networks are teaming up to broadcast the speech and stream it online, he said. “How this could be viewed as anything but a good thing, I don’t know. We’re shining light on a part of the state that’s been a doormat for a long time,” said Nichols. “We think not all news happens at the corner of Broad and High (where the Capitol is). Sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone.” But such calls by Kasich may be tougher sells after voters resoundingly repealed his collective bargaining overhaul last year, said Nancy Miller, an associate professor of political science at the University of Dayton. He’s lost some political capital, she said. “He’s going to have a hard time keeping the agenda as bold as it is, even though he has Republican majorities in both chambers of the Legislature. Some of those individuals are now wary,” she said. Legislative Republicans face potentially tough elections this year, she said, “so

they may be more reluctant to push for some of his more controversial prerogatives.” Kasich’s poll numbers don’t help. As of last month, Quinnipiac University found 48 percent of Ohioans disapprove of the job Kasich is doing, compared with 39 percent who approve. Kasich has made a habit of traveling outside Columbus, and that that plays to his political strength as a folksy, everyman politician, said Jason Pierce, who chairs the University of Dayton’s political science department. “The politics of getting out of Columbus and connecting with the voters seems to be motivating this decision, and dispensing with the formality of the State of the State address,” Pierce said. Winning over a few Democrats in blue-collar Steubenville wouldn’t hurt Kasich, either. Steubenville state Sen. Lou Gentile, a Democrat, is holding a legislative reception today night, and House Minority Leader Armond Budish was among Democrats whose votes helped clear relocation of the speech. That support is matched by opposition that will take the form Tuesday of protests by union workers, veterans and environmentalists opposed to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the controversial shale drilling technique that’s sweeping the region. “Given the political climate, I’m not sure he’s going to win over too many Democrats with what he’s doing,” Miller said. “Even though I think his motives for going to Steubenville are pure and good.”

The group says it prefers the “least destructive” methods to contain the beetles. It wants to combine the removal of infested trees with chemical treatments of potential host trees within a quarter-mile radius of infested ones.

“Duty is the most sublime word in our language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less.” — Robert E. Lee, Confederate general (1807-1870)

Lawmakers’ deficit resolve tested by cuts
By DONNA CASSATA Associated Press WASHINGTON — Lawmakers who came to Washington demanding budget cuts face a tough test now that President Barack Obama and military leaders want to shrink the force, shut down bases and cancel weapons to achieve them. A new national security strategy reflecting an end to decade-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan offers the opportunity to reduce defense spending and government deficits by hundreds of billions of dollars over the next 10 years — but at a cost of thousands of jobs in lawmakers’ states and districts. Democrats as well as Republicans are resisting, looking to protect home turf from California, where the Global Hawk unmanned aircraft is built, to Wisconsin, home to speedy Littoral combat ships, to military installations all across the country. “It’s funny that we want to save money everywhere except when it can bother us,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in an interview. Graham is a member of the Armed Services Committee and one of the few lawmakers who favors another round of By STEPHEN BRAUN, JACK GILLUM and RICHARD LARDNER Associated Press domestic base closings. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta recently outlined a $525 billion budget for next year that’s $6 billion less than the current level. The proposal is the first step in the deficitcutting plan that Obama and congressional Republicans agreed to last summer that calls for a reduction in projected defense spending of $487 billion over 10 years. “Make no mistake, the savings that we are proposing will impact on all 50 states and many districts, congressional districts, across America,” Panetta said at a news conference spelling out the new strategy. “This will be a test, a test of whether reducing the deficit is about talk or about action.” Obama submits his complete budget proposal to Congress on Feb. 13, but Panetta’s preview included enough details to stir alarm on Capitol Hill. The budget calls for canceling the Air Force’s Global Hawk program, a high-altitude unmanned aircraft used for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. The Pentagon said the aircraft’s cost at $215 million apiece make it less cost-effective than the existing U-2 spy planes that burst on the scene in the 1950s and

We just want to make sure we get it right.”

GOP race looks toward next 3 state primaries

Buying gov’t: Big donors and what they want
WASHINGTON — The millionaires, billionaires and companies giving big sums to political committees supporting Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Barack Obama have important business with the next president. Some are already in trouble with the government. Some are pressing for new laws or regulations that would benefit their interests in energy, mining and high finance. The Associated Press reviewed financial reports, regulatory filings, court records, public statements and more to identify favors that the biggest donors so far in the presidential campaign might want in return for their contributions worth $100,000 or more. In some cases, these donors have given $1 million or more to help Obama’s challengers or the president. An exhaustive review of their motives is nearly impossible, since new federal rules governing such contributions allow donors to effectively remain anonymous if they funnel cash into the campaign through corporate partnerships or other mechanisms By ALICIA A. CALDWELL Associated Press that can frustrate investigation. The presidential campaigns all have said they do not trade political favors for election money. Among AP’s findings: —An energy firm run by William Koch, a $1 million donor to the pro-Romney political committee, paid to lobby Congress on mining and safety issues and also over a proposed federal land swap that would enlarge the donor’s Colorado ranch. —The casino company run by Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire whose family has given $11 million to a political committee that supports Gingrich, has acknowledged it’s under federal investigation by the Justice Department and a civil probe by the Securities and Exchange Commission for possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The company denies wrongdoing and says the investigation stems from an allegation by a disgruntled employee. Adelson’s family has provided nearly all the money that the pro-Gingrich group has received so far. —A hedge fund run by a New York investor, Paul Singer, who gave the proRomney group $1 million, has pushed for federal laws

Northrop Grumman, the aircraft’s prime contractor, builds the planes in Palmdale, Calif., located in the district of the House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard “Buck” McKeon. The aircraft is based at Beale Air Force Base, near Marysville, Calif., soon to be in the redrawn congressional district of Democratic Rep. John Garamendi, a member of the committee. The program also is one of many that the Air Force manages at WrightPatterson Air Force Base in the district of Rep. Michael Turner, R-Ohio, another committee member. McKeon has criticized the overall military cuts but has not commented specifically on the Global Hawk. The Republican did send a clear message to the Pentagon and the White House when he promised to hold hearings on the budget “keeping in mind that while the president proposes, Congress disposes.” Garamendi questioned the Pentagon’s rationale, especially since six months ago it called the Global Hawk a critical program with no alternatives “that provide acceptable capability to meet the joint military requirement at less cost.”

AP Analysis: Border Patrol OT up as arrests drop
WASHINGTON — Border Patrol agents have racked up daily overtime at a cost of about $1.4 billion in the past six years while the number of arrests of illegal border crossers has fallen to the lowest level in nearly 40 years, an Associated Press analysis of agency records finds. Since the 2006 budget year, the agency charged with stopping would-be illegal border crossers and smugglers from making it into the U.S. over land and sea borders has spent more than $1.4 billion on what is described as “administrative uncontrollable overtime,” according to the data provided by the Border Patrol. In practical terms, agents average two hours a day in overtime. That means agents can earn anywhere from 10 percent to 25 percent extra pay an hour for the first two hours of overtime, with the extra cash being steadily reduced every hour after that because of complicated overtime rules. Over the course of a year, an agent can earn about $15,000 more than the base salary, which for a more experienced agent is typically over $60,000 a year. Agents are limited to $35,000 in overtime annually. The cost of overtime rose from about $155.8 million in 2006 to more than $331 million in 2011. That increase coincides with the addition of about 9,000 agents in the past six years and the drop of apprehensions to a nearly 40-year low, from more than 1 million arrests in 2006 to about 340,000 in 2011. Border Patrol Deputy Chief Ronald D. Vitiello said patrolling the border can be an unpredictable job that requires longer hours from agents. “The uncontrollable nature of the work is inherent in the primary duty of a Border Patrol agent and must be performed in order to get the job done,” Vitiello said, adding that anything from making an arrest to talking to witnesses can keep an agent on duty beyond a scheduled shift. Often it stems from charging the Border Patrol for the time spent driving from a remote location to an agent’s home base or staying late to finish the paperwork from an arrest or seizure of illicit cargo. Still, with the government facing record deficits and the Department of Homeland Security likely to see more cuts, a system that builds in overtime the same way on the busy U.S.-Mexico border as it does on the relatively sleepy U.S.-Canadian border raises questions. Most illegal border crossers are apprehended along the 2,000-mile long Mexican border in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. In the bud-

that would give official U.S. backing to the firm’s legal efforts to profit from the debt of distressed and Third World nations. —A board member and former chairman of a prestigious Los Angeles hospital, John C. Law with the CedarsSinai Medical Center, has given the pro-Obama committee $100,000 as the hospital has lobbied Obama’s administration over Medicare and Medicaid funding for teaching hospitals and electronic medical records, the National Institutes of Health and Army research programs. — A Pennsylvania coal producer, Consol Energy Inc., which donated $150,000 to the pro-Romney group, paid a $5.5 million fine last year for violations of the Clean Water Act at six of its mines. It is lobbying to prohibit the federal government from regulating greenhouse gas emissions. Weeks after the company gave money to support Romney, who previously had agreed that humans are contributing to climate change, the candidate appeared to back off that position and said he would oppose spending high amounts of federal money to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, like those from coal plants. get year ended in September, 18,506 agents made a combined 327,577 apprehensions — an average of nearly 18 apprehensions per agent. The agency spent about $283 million on overtime. But along the northern border there have been far fewer arrests, a statistic used to judge the amount of illegal activity along the borders. Patrolling about 4,000 miles of border with Canada, 2,237 agents made 6,123 apprehensions— an average of about three arrests per agent — in 2011. For example, the 201 agents in the Houlton Sector in Maine arrested 41 illegal border-crosses. Agents on the northern border earned a combined $37 million in overtime pay. The more than 200 agents assigned to the Border Patrol’s headquarters also made a combined $4.8 million in overtime last year. Vitiello defended the long hours and said agents need to have a strong presence on the border. “Regardless of the level of illegal cross border activity, agents are responsible for securing the border against all threats,” Vitiello said. “This means that agents must have the flexibility to develop intelligence, act on that intelligence, interact with the community and work with their law enforcement counterparts on illegal activity that has a nexus to the mission.”

Giants top Pats for 2nd Super Bowl in 4 years
By JOE KAY The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — Tom Brady let his final pass fly toward the scrum of players in the end zone, hoping for an incredible finish. Uh-uh, Tom. Not in this city and not in this game. Indianapolis is a Manning town, whether it’s Peyton or Eli pulling out the wins. And the Super Bowl is suddenly the province of the New York Giants, who have figured out how to topple Brady and the New England Patriots in the biggest moments. Eli Manning led another fourth-quarter touchdown drive and won his second Super Bowl MVP on Sunday night, leading the Giants to a 21-17 victory that provided a pulsating finish to an NFL season that started with turmoil and a lockout. “It’s been a wild game,” said Manning, who now has one more Super Bowl title than his older brother. “It’s been a wild season,” A wild finish was certainly fitting. The Giants (13-7) almost didn’t make the playoffs, needing a lot of help at 7-7 with two games left. Their defense finally came together and Manning gave them a chance in every game with his penchant for comebacks — a league-record 15 touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Of course, his greatest career comeback was in that Super Bowl four years ago, when the Patriots were undefeated and Manning led a late scoring drive that included an enduring Super Bowl moment — the incredible catch David Tyree made by trapping the ball against his helmet. The Patriots (15-4) had a chance to avoid more such history on Sunday. Brady, trying to match boyhood heroes Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw with four Super Bowl titles, had New England in range to put it away late in the fourth quarter. Wes Welker dropped a pass at the 20-yard line with 4 minutes left, forcing a punt that gave the Giants another chance trailing 17-15.

SPORTS
pressured him into mistakes during a 24-20 New York win in Foxborough, Mass. The Patriots went on to win their next 10, a streak that ended when Brady faced that same defense on Sunday. It just seems to have his number. On his first pass of the game, Brady was pressured by Tuck in the end zone and threw the ball to an open spot downfield to get rid of it, resulting in a safety. By contrast, Manning didn’t make any big mistakes and, again, was at his best under the last-minute pressure. “He’s become confident over time, kind of grew into it,” said his father, former New Orleans Saints quarterback Archie Manning. “I always felt like you have to experience those situations before you become confident. He’s certainly had his share.” And nobody will question anything he says again. Manning was criticized for insisting before the season that he’s an elite quarterback. Then, with the Giants struggling, he was overshadowed by a different Manning drama. Peyton and the Colts were hoping to reach a Super Bowl in their stadium. Instead, the quarterback had neck operations and the team came apart, prompting ownership to clean house. The week leading up to the Super Bowl was overshadowed in town by talk about Peyton’s future. Eli insisted he wasn’t bothered by sharing the spotlight. In the fourth quarter on Sunday, he had it all to himself. He was 10-of-14 for 118 yards in the final quarter with his seventh game-winning drive of the season. Overall, he completed 30-of-40 for 296 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions, leading the Giants to their fourth Super Bowl championship — two behind Pittsburgh for the record. In the end, a Manning got to hoist the silver Super Bowl trophy in Indianapolis. “It just feels good to win a Super Bowl,” Eli added. “Doesn’t matter where you are.”

“It comes to the biggest moment of my life and (I) don’t come up with it,” said a red-eyed Welker. “It’s one of those plays I’ve made a thousand times.” Manning’s turn for more Super Bowl magic. He threw a spot-on 38-yard pass down the sideline to Mario Manningham, fitting the ball perfectly between two defensive backs barreling down on the receiver. Manningham got both feet down before getting smacked out of bounds in front of the Patriots’ bench, a catch that was upheld on replay and reminded the 68,658 fans at Lucas Oil Stadium — one in particular — about that other catch four years earlier. Once Manningham came down with it, the Giants sensed things had turned their way, just like four years earlier. “I think they are both spectacular catches,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “I think with Mario’s earlier tonight, the way he kept his feet inbounds and held onto the ball (while) going out of bounds was a remarkable thing.” The Patriots were thinking the same thing, too. “I thought that play they made on our sideline was a phenomenal throw and catch,” Brady said. “That got them going.” They got down to the 6-yard line with just over a minute left and the Patriots down to one timeout. New York could have run the clock down to a few seconds and kicked a field goal. Patriots coach Bill Belichick did the math and

decided on a trade-off: Give up a touchdown for some time. New England pulled up and allowed Ahmad Bradshaw to run the final 6 yards with 57 seconds left. Once Bradshaw realized what was happening, he tried to stop at the 1-yard line to keep the clock going but ended up falling backward into the end zone. Brady would get one last chance with the Giants defense bearing down on him, as it always does. Defensive end Justin Tuck huddled the New York defense after a touchback on the kickoff left the ball at the 20-yard line. “I think a lot of guys had their eyes lit up,” Tuck explained. “This is what we’ve been working for all year and we’ve got 57 seconds left to be world champs.” Brady set a Super Bowl record by completing 16 consecutive passes earlier in the game, topping Montana’s record. When he needed several quick completions to get moving in the last minute, he couldn’t do it. The Patriots got only as far as midfield with 5 seconds left. Brady threw a desperation pass into the end zone, where the ball was batted around in a scrum before falling incomplete just beyond the reach of AllPro tight end Rob Gronkowski, bringing the spray of confetti from above. “You come down to one play at the end,” Brady added. “If we make it, we’re world champs. If we don’t, we’re wishing we were.” Brady’s had a tough time against this Giants defense. During the regular season, it

St. John’s defenders Alex Clark and Seth Bockey made things tough on Lincolnview players like Nick Leeth Saturday night at Arnzen Gymnasium. Though Leeth was sent to the line in this case, the Blue Jay defense proved very difficult overall in a 26-point rout.

DELPHOS — St. John’s took control from the start of its non-conference boys hardwood contest versus Lincolnview Saturday night, bolting out to a 10-2 lead, and steadily pulling away to a 58-32 triumph at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium. Both teams were coming off of thrilling last-second league victories the night before. The Jays (10-6, winners of four straight) used balanced scoring — three players in twin digits led by senior sharpshooter Alex Clark with 12 (4 bombs) and juniors Ryan Buescher and Seth Bockey with 10 each — to shoot 50 percent (21-of-42, including a torrid 10-of-19 behind the arc) from the floor.

halftime margin. The Lancer offense had a bit more success in the third period — though it still never caught fire. Whitaker scored four points but Buescher dropped in six and Calvelage five as the Blue Jay offense continued to hum along. A 3-ball by senior Ben Warnecke gave the hosts their largest lead — 43-18 — midway through and a midlane runner by Calvelage with 4.1 ticks on the board put the hosts up 47-25. The Jays held their largest lead of the night at 55-28 in the fourth period as the benches emptied for both squads. “We’ve been trying to get that balance all year, especially inside-out. We need to get the ball to Seth and Cody (Looser) inside and make us tougher to defend,” Elwer added. “We’re starting to get contributions from more people on a consistent basis. We still have a ways to go with learning this offense — you can always get better there — but the more balance we can get, the better; one guy doesn’t have to carry us.” Lincolnview finished with 23 boards (8 offensive) as senior Clayton Longstreth nabbed six; 11 turnovers; and 12 fouls. They are on the road Friday at Paulding. “We’ve been going in the right direction overall. We just need to toughen up because two teams in our sectional: St. John’s and Crestview; both play this kind of tough defense,” Welch added. “We have some single weekends coming up, so we’ll work on things and simply try to get our legs back.” St. John’s ended up with 31 rebounds (6 offensive) as Buescher had seven and Clark five; 12 turnovers; and 18 infractions. They host Parkway Friday. The junior varsity Jays evened their mark at 8-8 with a 47-33 victory. Sophomore Ryan Koester poured in 17 and freshman Evan Hays 15 for the victors. Sophomore Logan Miller led the Lancers (10-7) with 17.

Poor shooting dooms Lady Green cop undefeated PCL title LadyCats vs. Rockets
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

By JIM METCALFE

KALIDA — Shooting. In the game of basketball, good shooting can cover a lot of “sins” but bad shooting can be well nigh impossible to overcome. That is what the Kalida girls team found out Saturday afternoon, struggling to get anything consistent going against Putnam County League Pandora-Gilboa and falling 41-36 at the Wildcat Den. “It’s not that we don’t work on it constantly but we can’t go out there and shoot for the girls. They have to not only attack the gaps and seams in the zone — which we did not do today — but shoot with confidence,” Kalida coach Adam Huber noted. “We fully expected them to start with the man and go zone; they scouted us Tuesday night and we didn’t attack the zone that night, either. We forced some things in the first half and even when we started to get the ball inside the second half, we couldn’t hit those, either.” The LadyCats (9-8, 2-3 PCL), who rely on their fullcourt pressure to try and create easier shots, couldn’t hit enough from the floor this day: 14-of-54 (3-of-18 beyond the arc) for 25.9 percent, as well as 5-of-10 at the stripe (50%). Not that the Lady Rockets (10-7, 3-3 PCL) shot much better — 11-of-31 fielders (1-of-7 long range) for 35.5 percent — but they were solid at the stripe: 18-of-26 (69.2%). The LadyCats had better success against the Rockets in the first period, though they weren’t exactly on fire — 5-of15. Still, it helped enough that they could set up their 1-2-1-1 full-court pressure that did turn P-G over five times (20 for the game versus 13 of their own). Five different girls got into the scoring column for the hosts, with junior Summer Holtkamp (8 markers, 4 assists, 5 rebounds) leading with four. They led 13-8 as senior Brandi Merschman put back a rebound at the horn. The Rockets had switched into a 2-1-2 zone late in the first and stayed in it the rest of the way. That forced the LadyCats to shoot over the top and that is when the shooting went south. They were 1-of-9 in the period and combined with six errors, they managed only one fielder — a deuce by junior Julia Vandemark early on to account for their biggest lead at 15-8 — and tosses by junior Kaylyn Verhoff (2:08) and senior Nicole Kaufman (6 caroms, 3 dimes) with 17.2 ticks left. Once sophomore Ashley Alt (6 points, 6 rebounds) dropped in a jumper from the left elbow at 1:53, Pandora took the lead at 17-16. Kaufman’s single accounted for a 19-17 halftime score. “Because Kalida is so quick and they rely a lot on penetration, we felt we had to go zone most of the way. We have played it briefly before but this is the most we’ve played it all year,” P-G mentor Ken Brooks explained. “We wanted to make them shoot over us and we executed that well. We also didn’t let their pressure get to us a lot; we had our moments but not too often.” The Kalida offense really went cold in the third period — even getting nine offensive boards — dropping in a downright chilly 2-of-18. One

bucket (Holtkamp) tied it at 19 at 7:21 but sophomore Megan Maag (game-high 17 counters, 9 caroms) replied with a drive at 7:10 to give the Rockets the lead for good. Holtkamp added the other Kalida basket (45 ticks) to get them within 23-21 but when junior Morgan Gerdeman put in an offensive carom with 22 ticks showing, that made P-G lead 25-21. P-G was 2-of-8 in the canto. Kalida battled within 26-24 on a deuce by junior Amy Smith at the 4:58 mark but the Rockets put together a quick 6-0 spurt — two Maag baskets around two tosses from senior Megan Verhoff (5 boards) — to take a 32-24 edge. The LadyCats tried to rally, getting eight counters from senior Alexis Wurth (team-high 11 points - 3 bombs), including a triple from the top of the key at 3:10 to break the streak. However, the Rockets then used the free-throw line — canning 7-of-9 in the final 3:00 — in building a 39-29 lead and holding on down the stretch. “We’ve been trying to press more because we struggle so much shooting the basketball in the half-court set but you have to be able to score consistently to set it up. We’ve even tried to do it when we don’t score but, basically, our shooting problems don’t allow us to use it effectively,” Huber added. P-G grabbed 38 caroms (10 offensive) as junior Ashley Williams (3 assists) and sophomore Vanessa McCullough (7 markers, 3 dimes) added five each. They concluded with 15 fouls and visit BVC foe Arlington Thursday. Kalida nabbed 31 boards (15 offensive) as senior Haley McIntyre and freshman Jackie Gardner added five each. They ended with 22 infractions and visit Holgate Tuesday. “We’ve been shooting free throws around 85 percent the last few games but I think I jinxed them the first half. Fortunately, we turned it around the second half,” Brooks ended. The Kalida junior varsity dominated P-G’s 29-15. Junior Kristi Honigfort and freshman Nicole Recker led the LadyCats with eight each. Sophomore Dakota Hilvers topped the Lady Rockets with five.

-----Bluffton completes season sweep of Ravens in Founders Hall By Martin Kluk Sports information intern

BLUFFTON — The Bluffton University women snapped their 2-game skid and pulled out a hard-fought victory over Anderson University, 61-49, on Saturday. The Beavers improved to 8-13 (6-8 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference) and they took sole possession of sixth place in the conference standings, while Anderson slipped to 8-13 (5-9 HCAC). Lauren Hutton (New Riegel), who posted her third career double-double, started the scoring with a stick-back 30 seconds in to give Bluffton the first points of the game. Their advantage grew to seven at the 12:45 mark when senior Rachel Daman (Defiance/Tinora)

drilled two free throws to make it 13-6 Beavers. The Ravens answered with a 14-6 run to grab their first lead of the game (20-19) on a hoop-and-harm by Ashley Wuestefeld with just over eight minutes to play in the half. The teams battled back and forth throughout the rest of the first period, including forcing eight ties, but a pair or free throw makes and a layup by Mikayla Coburn (McGuffey/Upper Scioto Valley) in the last minute and a half sent the Beavers into the locker room with a slim 32-30 advantage. Anderson’s Kate Barwick nailed a jumper 30 seconds into the second half to tie the game 32-32, but from that point on, it was all Beavers. A 14-2 jag by Bluffton put the home team on top 46-34 with just over 13 minutes to play. The Ravens tried to stay within striking distance, cutting the lead to 48-42 at the 10:35 mark, but that was as close as they could get. A 9-0 spurt sparked by a trey from Daman and two Hutton layups put Bluffton up 57-42 and that sealed the deal. The Beavers coasted to their sixth conference win in the last eight games. Hutton led the way for the Beavers as she notched her third career double-double with 20 points and 10 boards while also handing out four assists. Daman had a strong 15-point performance as she shot extremely

well, going 4-of-5 from the field, 3-of-4 from outside the arc and a perfect 4-of4 from the charity stripe. Brittany Lewis (Springfield/ Shawnee) chimed in with a game-high six dimes and Kylee Burkholder (West Unity/Hilltop) was productive off the bench, spelling Hutton with five points and four boards in 13 minutes. Bluffton shot well from the field, hitting 24-of-52 (46.2 percent) overall (4-of15 behind the arc), compared to 22-of-51 (43.1 percent) for Anderson. The Beavers collected eight more off the glass (33-25; 11-9 offensive) while also taking advantage of the freethrow line. Bluffton finished an impressive 9-of-10 (90 percent) at the stripe, while the Ravens tallied only six attempts (3-of-6 for 50 percent). Anderson struggled from outside the arc, connecting on just 2-of-12 (16.7 percent) attempts. BU totaled 17 assists (Hutton 4); five steals (Lewis 2); two blocks (Hutton and Lewis 1); 12 fouls; and 15 miscues. Anderson was led by Jenna Wittenberg with 16 and Amy Wuestefeld 12. They added 13 assists (Brittany Stafford 5); five steals (Wittenberg 3); five blocks (Nyomi Defiel 3); 16 turnovers; and 12 fouls. The Beavers are back in action on Wednesday when they travel to Manchester College for a 7:30 p.m. tip. -----

Soul Train fans bop on Broadway in Cornelius fete
By CHRIS HAWLEY The Associated Press NEW YORK — Fans of “Soul Train” boogied down Broadway wearing afro wigs and bell bottoms on Saturday while others recounted their favorite episodes at a Harlem meeting hall in tribute to the show’s late creator, Don Cornelius. About 100 dancers descended on Times Square in a “flash mob” organized through the Internet. As startled tourists looked on, they recreated one of the show’s “Soul Train lines” in which people would take turns dancing toward a TV camera while showing off their most outrageous moves. “Don Cornelius was a big influence in my life, and I just wanted to pay tribute,” said disc jockey Jon Quick, as he held up a speaker blasting disco grooves. “He was playing the music that nobody else wanted to play. He was an amazing man.” Cornelius, 75, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Wednesday. He had suffered from health problems, a difficult divorce, and had pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor spousal battery charge in 2009. But on Saturday fans praised Cornelius’ vision in creating, hosting and selling “Soul Train” to television stations that were originally skeptical about programming aimed at blacks. The show aired from 1971 to 2006. “Don Cornelius brought soul to the whole world,” said Ramona Hamm, 37, who came to Times Square with her 9-year-old daughter, Kayla Charles. The dancers bounced down Broadway for about 45

minutes until police told the party to disperse. In Harlem, activist Al Sharpton led a tribute to Cornelius as part of the weekly community meeting at the headquarters of his National Action Network. In 1974, a 19-year-old Sharpton appeared on “Soul Train” to present an award to musician James Brown.

‘Chronicle’ edges Radcliffe’s ‘Woman’ with $22M
By DAVID GERMAIN The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Some unknown kids with superpowers have nudged out the actor who plays the world’s most famous teen wizard at the weekend box office. The 20th Century Fox release “Chronicle,” featuring a relatively unknown cast as youths who gain telekinetic abilities, debuted as the No. 1 movie with $22 million. Sunday studio estimates put “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe’s ghost story “The Woman in Black,” released by CBS Films, just behind with a $21 million opening. The results were close enough that the No. 1 and 2 rankings could switch when final numbers are released Monday. The two movies had healthy starts considering it was Super Bowl weekend, when few people go to theaters on Sunday because of the big game. Each movie landed in the all-time top-10 list for Super Bowl weekend debuts, which audience that had been giving movies a pass during a boxoffice slide late last year. “Chronicle” was “designed and made for a younger demographic. That demographic has been the one that’s been missing from theaters,” said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for 20th Century Fox. “There’s something very unique and very innovative about this movie that they got wind of. There was a lot of pre-release chatter on social media that made a connection with this audience.” From first-time director Josh Trank, “Chronicle” relies on documentary-style, handheld filming techniques to tell the story of three teens (Dane DeHaan, Michael B. Jordan and Alex Russell) who put their newfound superpowers to work in mischievous and eventually dark ways. “Chronicle” added $13 million overseas for a worldwide Accept no substitutes!

is headed by the $31.1 million opening for 2008’s “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert,” according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. “To have two movies over $20 million on a Super Bowl weekend is really strong,” said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “If the Super Bowl is as close as these two movies, that’ll be a really good Super Bowl.” Both movies packed in solid teen and early-20s crowds, Hollywood’s bread-and-butter

and the lure of an old-fashioned Gothic ghost story. Both films far exceeded industry expectations for the weekend. “In retrospect, you look at Daniel Radcliffe, one of the biggest stars and one of the hardest-working kids in show business, you have a very wellmade PG-13 scary movie,” said Steven Friedlander, head of distribution for CBS Films. “The only surprise, really, is why are we surprised? Those are all the elements for making a hit.” The previous weekend’s top movie, Liam Neeson’s Alaska survival tale “The Grey,” slipped to No. 3 with $9.5 million, raising its domestic total to $34.6 million. At No. 4 with an $8.5 million debut was another Alaska adventure, Universal Pictures’ family film “Big Miracle,” with Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski aiming to save three whales trapped by Arctic ice. Pop star Madonna’s drama “W.E.” had a modest opening in limited release, pulling in $45,000 in four theaters. Directed and co-written by Madonna, “W.E.” blends the real-life romance of Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough) and Britain’s King Edward VIII (James D’Arcy) with a fictional modern story of a Manhattan woman (Abbie Cornish) in an

unhappy marriage. Hollywood finished the first month of 2012 with strong revenues that are running well ahead of last year’s lackluster receipts. According to Hollywood.com, domestic revenues through Sunday totaled $967.5 million, up 14 percent from the same point last year. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released today. 1. “Chronicle,” $22 million ($13 million international). 2. “The Woman in Black,” $21 million. 3. “The Grey,” $9.5 million ($1.4 million international). 4. “Big Miracle,” $8.5 million ($300,000 international). 5. “Underworld Awakening,” $5.6 million ($11.9 million international). 6. “One for the Money,” $5.3 million. 7. “Red Tails,” $5 million. 8. “The Descendants,” $4.6 million ($11.2 million international). 9. “Man on a Ledge,” $4.5 million ($6.2 million international). 10. “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” $3.9 million.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2012 It might be an excessive amount of opportunities rather than too few that lead to problems for you in the year ahead. It will be left up to you to evaluate each and every facet, so that you don’t waste time on small beer. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Instead of trying to be all things to all people, it would be much wiser to take a firm stance on whatever it is that floats your boat. It could turn out to be the least complicated choice. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Responsibilities and duties that demand immediate attention should not be ignored. Disregarding or postponing action items would further compound your problems. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -A friend might disappoint you by not inviting you to a social involvement. Later, you’ll find out that it wasn’t his or her place to include you or anybody else. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are a person who isn’t afraid to tackle more than one endeavor simultaneously. However, take care about doing so currently, because your skill could desert you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Be extremely careful to make sure that the story being retold to you is accurate before you pass it on to anybody else. You’ll be blamed if it’s just a load of bunk. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A friendship could be in jeopardy if you place more importance on something material than you do on your chum. Don’t allow anything of this ilk to overpower your better angles. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t underestimate a person with whom you have to negotiate an important matter. The trump card you think you’re holding might actually be found in the other party’s hand. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Even though you might be the one who’s putting pressure on yourself, it isn’t likely that you’ll be very effective working under stressful conditions. Let up a little, already. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Under most conditions you’ll tend to be balanced, well controlled and practical. Today, however, these finer qualities may be eschewed in favor of foolish risks. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -If you fail to do your own thinking, you run the risk of others making decisions for you, and not necessarily with your best interests in mind. Stay in charge of your business. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- A situation concerning someone with whom you’ve had a recent disagreement still needs a bit more time to heal, so if you can do so graciously, avoid this person for the time being. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Suppress all impulses to take either financial or physical risks. It’s not smart to allow boldness or brashness to take precedence over your common sense. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2012 Even if the times ahead are trying for many of your friends and associates, your material prospects look to be very encouraging. This may be due to some kind of special job you’ll be able to do that others can’t. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Appearances could be deceptive, such as a situation where you believe you’re helping another, but in reality the other person will end up doing something great for you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -It won’t happen unassisted, but you will have an excellent chance to take a nominal opportunity and transform it into something quite outstanding. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There is a market for the gifts you possess, but it won’t come to you -you must find and exploit it. Start to investigate different areas for their commercial possibilities. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You could be more fortunate than usual in situations that contain elements of chance. However, you can’t leave everything up to luck -- some degree of control will be essential. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A situation about which you’ve been quite negative could surprise you with a fortuitous resolution. It proves that you should never view life through a dismal lens. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A surefire formula for success contains equal parts optimism and elbow grease. Once you determine that you have a chance for something you want, put your muscles and joints to work. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You might start out with some rather modest objectives, but once you spot something looming over the horizon -- even if it’s bigger than life -- you’ll immediately switch targets. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The two greatest assets you possess are your optimism and your common sense. When the duo acts in unison, you won’t have any trouble effectively fulfilling an ambitious undertaking. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- A change you’ve been trying to orchestrate on your own may happen with a smidgen of intervention from Lady Luck. It could improve your financial picture greatly. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Someone who has been watching you for a long time has decided that he or she wants to meet you. As a result, this person might end up being one of your most valuable contacts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- By demonstrating a willingness to be cooperative and to share your assets, you will engender a similar response from the people who benefit from your actions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A couple of people who have always proved lucky for you could prove to be fortunate for you again when you all find yourselves operating on the same wavelength.

Despite ceremony, NY fort’s skeletons still not buried
By CHRIS CAROLA Associated Press LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. — For decades, tourists visiting this popular Adirondack village could gape at the skeletons of soldiers from nearby French and Indian War sites. Then in 1993, a somber reburial ceremony was held to finally put the remains to rest. Only that never happened. Almost all of the 18thcentury skeletons were never buried. Instead, the collection of remains eventually was taken to Arizona and Canada for study and has yet to be returned for reburial. In this small upstate New York town that was the real-life setting for the historical events depicted in “The Last of the Mohicans,” people had no idea. “Most of them aren’t there?” asked Robert Blais, mayor of Lake George since 1971, who learned about the decision from The Associated Press. The AP spoke to archaeologists who have dug at the site, fort officials and the anthropologists who have the remains to confirm that the bulk of the skeleton collection is not at the fort. Now, the people behind the decision are publicly discussing for the first time how such important artifacts left Lake George, and why they haven’t been returned after nearly two decades. “You’re reaching the time when they should come home,” said David Starbuck, a New York archaeologist who has written about the history behind Fort William Henry’s skeleton collection. On Memorial Day weekend in 1993, a well-publicized reburial ceremony was held to honor the redcoats and American provincial soldiers whose remains were being reinterred in the cemetery at the fort, a full-scale reconstruction of the outpost the British built here at the outbreak of war in 1755. The original fort was the real-life setting of the historical events in James Fenimore Cooper’s classic, “The Last of the Mohicans.” But what fort officials didn’t bother to tell the dozens of history buffs, tourists, and local, British and Native American dignitaries at the ceremony was that only three of 15 mostly complete skeletons were actually reburied. The others were still being analyzed by two anthropologists. The fort’s owners decided to go ahead with the ceremony anyway. “We didn’t make an issue out of it,” said Robert F. Flacke Sr., longtime president of the Fort William Henry Corp., which owns the fort and an adjacent resort hotel. Those involved in the ’93 project said there was no intention to deceive anyone, but a local historian who said he was at the reburial ceremony recalls no public mention being made of a change in plans. Starbuck, who spoke at the ceremony, said a longer-thanexpected analysis that spring, followed by other issues and job changes among the

anthropologists, all combined to leave the reburial in limbo. He and others involved in the project didn’t bring up the issue at the ceremony, figuring the bones would be returned soon enough. “It was not intended to drag on this long,” said Starbuck, who has conducted several digs at the fort over the past two decades. In the early 1990s, he recommended that the fort’s skeletons be removed from exhibits and reinterred after being studied by experts in bioarchaeology, the study of human skeletal remains from archaeological sites. Those experts, anthropologists Brenda Baker and Maria Liston, both told the AP they had longstanding agreements with the fort to keep the collections while their studies continued. Neither Baker nor Liston attended the reburial ceremony. Baker said officials at Fort William Henry haven’t asked for the return of the collection, which includes a dozen skeletons from the ’93 project and three more uncovered during a follow-up excavation two years later. “They know where they are and they know what I have and we keep in contact,” Baker told the AP. Though the findings of the anthropologists appeared in professional journals and other publications in the 1990s, few in the public knew where the bones were, including the residents of Lake George, who had long been led to believe the remains were buried there.

Earthquake hits Philippines: 13 dead, 40 missing
By JIM GOMEZ and TERESA CEROJANO Associated Press MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Rescuers dig with picks and shovels trying to reach dozens of people trapped under houses collapsed by a strong earthquake today that shook a central Philippine island and set off landslides. At least 13 people were killed and 40 are believed missing, most of them along the shore near the epicenter of the 6.8-magnitude quake that struck in a narrow strait just off Negros Island. In the mountain village of Planas, 9 miles (15 kilometers) from coastal Guihulngan town in Negros Oriental province, as many as 30 houses were buried with at least 40 residents believed trapped, said Gov. Roel Degamo. “Their situation is bad because if you are covered by landslide for one hour, two hours, how can you breathe?” Mayor Ernesto Reyes said. “But we just hope for the best, that there are still survivors.” Army troops and police were deployed to help in the rescue. At least 10 people were confirmed dead in Guihulngan, including students at a college and an elementary school and others in a town market that collapsed, Reyes said. About 100 were injured. The quake, which hit at 11:49 a.m. (0349 GMT), triggered another landslide in the mountain village of Solongon in La Libertad town, also in Negros Oriental. An unknown number of people were trapped, said La Libertad police chief inspector Eric Arrol Besario. “We’re now getting shovels and chain saws to start a rescue because there were people trapped inside. Some of them were yelling for help earlier,” Besario told The Associated Press by phone. Three key bridges in the town cracked and were no longer passable, he said. Food and medicines were waiting in the provincial capital of Dumaguete, but the aid could not reach the villages in need because of damaged roads and bridges. “There is a Canadian and an Indian doctor who are here for an earlier scheduled medical mission and it’s good that they are helping us,” said Reyes. “They have some medicines with them but that may not be enough.” Nine bridges were damaged in Negros Oriental, including four that were not passable, said Gov. Degamo. The worst damage was concentrated in the province’s mountainous northern portion, he said. Philippine seismologists briefly issued a tsunami alert for the central islands. Huge waves washed out five bamboo and wooden cottages from a beach resort in La Libertad, but there were no reports of injuries, said police Superintendent Ernesto Tagle. Elsewhere along the coast, people rushed out of schools, malls and offices. Two people died in another town close to the epicenter, Tayasan, including a child when a concrete fence of a house collapsed, said Benito Ramos, head of the Office of Civil Defense. Another child was killed in a church when a wall collapsed during a funeral in Negros Oriental’s Jimalalud town, Mayor Reynaldo Tuanda said. Tayasan police officer Alfred Vicente Silvosa told AP by phone that aftershocks were preventing people from returning to their homes. “We are outside, at the town plaza. We cannot inspect buildings yet because it’s dangerous,” Silvosa said. “I felt the building shaking, so I rushed out of the building. Our computers, shelves, plates, the cupboards, water dispenser all fell.” A three-story office building also collapsed in La Libertad, but occupants escaped. Negros Oriental police chief Edward Carranza said the temblor damaged many houses in Guihulngan and he ordered his men to help displaced residents find shelter. Officials in some areas suspended work and canceled classes. Power and telecommunications were knocked out in several places. Carranza said police rushed out of his building when the quake struck. “All my personnel ran out fearing our building would collapse,” he said. “Now it’s shaking again,” he said as an aftershock hit.

“My keychain is dancing.” The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered 44 miles (72 kilometers) north of Dumaguete city on Negros and hit at a depth of 29 miles (46 kilometers). The area is about 400 miles (650 kilometers) southeast of the capital, Manila.
