DELPHOS — The
Delphos Public Library Board
of Trustees met in regular
session Wednesday after-
noon in the meeting room of
The First Edition. With three
board members absent the
meeting was brief. A couple
long-standing issues were
resolved, such as the sign for
the front of The First Edition
and the automatic door.
“I talked to Chris Williams
from Sign Pro and she had
said that the sign would be
finished in two weeks, so
I called again and it’s now
finished,” Library Director
Nancy Mericle said. “They’ll
call next week to install it.”
The sign will be installed
on the front face of the build-
ing, facing First Street.
When Mericle sent out for
bids on the automatic door
project, two contenders rose
to the surface: Automatic
Door Controls, Inc. (ADC)
and A1 Door Specialties,
both out of Fort Wayne, IN.
“Neither ADC nor A1
does the electrical portion
of the installation, so we’ll
still need to have Schwinnen
come in and do that for us,”
she said. “ADC offers the
better price and as far as what
both companies are offering
it’s really apples to apples.
ADC did the doors at Chief’s
and St. Rita’s, so they’re
familiar with the area.”
The money for the door
will be taken from the
$15,000.00 donated by the
Dienstberger Foundation.
“If we go with ADC, the
money we’ll save from the
difference in price should
cover the electrical work we
need done,” Mericle added.
“Overall this should only
take up a third of the funds
we got from the Dienstberger
Foundation.”
A motion was passed for
Mericle to accept the bid pre-
sented by ADC.
In other news, the library

Unsuccessfully fight-
ing back tears, former I &
K Distributors CEO Robert
Fishbein, 48, Lima read a pre-
pared statement Wednesday
afternoon at his sentencing
hearing. Fishbein will serve
three years in prison for five
felony and two misdemeanor
charges against him.
With a red face and wear-
ing an orange jumpsuit,
Fishbein owned up to what
he had done, apologizing
to the court, the county, his
family and friends, and to the
victim in the case, his voice
breaking several times from
emotion.
He had already pleaded
guilty to intimidation of a wit-
ness, a third-degree felony,
and six counts of telephone
harassment, four fifth-degree
felonies and two first-degree
misdemeanors. Judge Charles
D. Steele handed down a
three-year prison sentence
on the intimidation charge,
12-month sentences on the
felony harassment charges,
and 180-day sentences on
the misdemeanor harassment
charges. The sentences will
all be served concurrently
making a total of three years
of incarceration.
Fishbein was charged
late last year with harassing
a female former employee
while she was working at
the firm. The woman left I
& K Distributors after alleg-
edly receiving severance
pay in lieu of filing a sexual
harassment complaint against
Fishbein. The harassment
continued, and charges were
filed against Fishbein in
Van Wert Municipal Court.
Afterward, Fishbein report-
edly continued the calls to
the woman and also made a
threat against her if she did
not drop the case.
The Van Wert County
Grand Jury indicted Fishbein,
and at the arraignment hear-
ing he was told that as part
of the conditions of his bond,
he was not allowed to use
a telephone unsupervised.
Minutes later, court officials
saw Fishbein talking on his
cell phone in the lobby of
the courthouse. His bond
was then revoked and he was
taken into custody. However,
he was accused of continuing
to make phone calls from
jail. Steele even mentioned
an instance last week when
Fishbein was trying to make
a phone call from prison.
At the hearing, Steele told
Fishbein that the former CEO
was a classic case of a com-
pulsive stalker who cannot
control his actions.
“I cannot think of any
other explanation why a per-
son in your position and edu-
cation would go down such a
self-destructive path. So far,
you haven’t turned one bit
away from the direction you
were headed and frankly it
worries me that you could be
dangerous. You’re still doing
the same things you were
doing the first day you came
in here.”
In offering an apology
for his actions, Fishbein
expressed remorse.
“I deeply regret the inap-
propriate actions I have dis-

ADA — When most people
would be relaxing on their lunch
break on March 13, the entire town
of Ada seemed to gather together
to watch one of its most beloved
historical buildings succumb to
fire. Men stopped making their
deliveries, women in the middle
of getting their hair cut walked out
in their aprons, citizens who lived
and worked in Ada’s downtown
buildings all stared at First United
Methodist Church with mouths
open.
Everyone’s first concern was
for the Headstart preschool pro-
gram the church had hosted in its
basement for the last 20 years.
“When I first heard someone
say there was smoke coming from
the church I thought, oh it must
be some little thing. But when I
walked out and saw all the smoke
and the Rose window blow out
I started running to help with
the Headstart,” recounted Joyce
LaSala who was relieved to find
out seconds later the children had
all been safely shepherded to the
Ada Public Library.
The church was dedicated in
June 1899. Last year, its near-
300 members raised more than
$100,000 to renovate and put in
the new beautiful stained glass
windows. Lifelong member Sheila
Hughes expressed how dear the
building was to her.
“It’s sad to lose so much beauty.
I remember decorating at Christmas
with the Sanctuary lights on and
people off the street came in to
watch us because they thought the
windows were so beautiful,” she
said. “I was born here, baptized
and married in this church. This is
where my husband’s and mother’s
memorial were. My children were
baptized and confirmed here. My
grandchildren have been all bap-
tized in this church. I have so many
wonderful memories but my favor-
Ada community reacts to church fre
A candle left near combustible material of some sort is suspected for causing
the church fire in Ada that destroyed the 113-year-old First United Methodist
Church. Members of the congregation and community are in shock and grief
as the church moves forward.

Thief caught in
act by victim
On Wednesday at 6:02 a.m.
Delphos Police were called to
the 200 block of Holland Ave.
in reference to an attempted
theft from a motor vehicle in
that area. Upon officers arriv-
al they spoke with the victim
who advised that upon leav-
ing the residence two male
subjects were observed inside
the victim’s unlocked vehicle
taking a speaker system out of
the unlocked vehicle. As the
victim approached the sub-
jects they fled the area.

ite is of my wedding.”
LaSala also felt the sanctu-
ary was a sacred place.
“The rose window was a
beautiful thing to gaze upon
and meditate and pray. And
when the sun came in, it was
so special,” she said.
Associate Pastor Pat Searfoss
has many wonderful memories.
“We have so many children
who have made this church
part of their lives. With lock-
ins and youth group, those chil-
dren have explored the church
from top to bottom and prob-
ably know the building better
than anyone,” he said.
Others members of the con-
gregation also had to smile at
the youths’ many games of
hide-n-seek.
“I want the children to know
that all the people that love
them are still here. We are still
a church,” Searfoss added.
That sentiment was con-
tinued later at an impromptu
prayer circle held across the
street in the empty lot across
from ReStore. Joined by mem-
bers of the community as well
as members of the church,
Pastor Mary Jo Yeakel led the
assembly in the Lord’s Prayer.
Later on the church’s website
she wrote:
“WE are the church. We
worshiped today in the street.
We prayed together with
everybody. Old boundaries
melted away and we hugged
each other and offered what-
ever we had.”
Yeakel hosted another
prayer circle at 6pm that night
with an even larger crowd
that had gathered to pay their
respects to the now destroyed
building.
First United Methodist
Church was host to many
groups, including Weight
Watchers, Kiwanis, Headstart,
Youth Group, Boy Scouts and
Girl Scouts. With help already
being offered by the commu-
nity and other United Methodist
churches as far as Mansfield,
Ada’s UMC is already rallying.
On the UMC’s website,
Yeakel wrote:
“Please pray; tell each other
your remembrances of our
sweet church — grieve hon-
estly and know that we will
walk this journey together.”

played the past year. For many
years I have been in a position
of authority. No one is above
the law, certainly not me. In
addition, due to the level of
responsibility granted to me,
I believe I had a higher call-
ing for ethical conduct that I
abused. All my inappropriate
actions, I take full responsibil-
ity for.”
Fishbein, who had been
almost completely silent in
previous court appearances,
continued for the next five
minutes, offering apologies to
those he had wronged, includ-
ing his own children. “I caused
them great embarrassment
and I have not been a role
model. I had an extramarital
affair with a woman only a few
years older than them. This has
caused great pain and embar-
rassment.”
Finally, he expressed his
contrition to the victim in the
case.
“I apologize first of all for
being involved in an extramari-
tal affair. I was much older and
a leader, and I abused that by
setting a poor example in how
I conducted myself. I apologize
to [her], for my actions, the
things I said, and the threats I
made. I take full responsibility
for my bad choices... I wish her
the best of luck in her future
endeavors.”
Defense Attorney William
Kluge remarked at the unique-
ness of this case.
“In 36 years as a lawyer, I
don’t believe I’ve ever had a
case that compares to this in
so many ways,” he observed,
noting his client’s position and
education. He spoke at length
about the psychological evalu-
ation conducted on Fishbein,
noting the obvious need for
therapy and medication.
“I don’t believe sending him
to prison is the answer,” Kluge
told Steele, asking for jail time
in Van Wert as punishment.
Kluge stated that he did not
feel the intense therapy needed
would be possible in prison.
Steele countered that due to the
potential danger from Fishbein,
that prison was the only place
he was aware of to deal with
the problem.
Kluge cited the evaluation
report in saying that his cli-
ent has issues with depression,
anger, alcohol, medication, and
“self-esteem built on a fragile
foundation.”
When offered a chance to
make a statement, Van Wert
County Prosecuting Attorney
Charles Kennedy said he
wouldn’t do so.
“As difficult as it is, Your
Honor, I made a factual rep-
resentation to Mr. Kluge
that I would remain silent at
sentencing except to recom-
mend a maximum sentence
of 12 months combined and I
will stick by my word to Mr.
Kluge.”
Steele told Fishbein that he
hopes proper counseling can
be found for him in prison.

Dear EarthTalk: Can
you fill me in on what the
“Just Label It” campaign
is and what it is trying to
accomplish?
— Eric Altieri,
Columbus

Just Label It is an effort
spearheaded by organic farm-
ers and food producers, con-
sumer and public health advo-
cates and environmentalists to
persuade the federal govern-
ment to require that foods
with genetically engineered
(GE) ingredients be labeled
accordingly. Consumers have
a right, they believe, to be
able to make informed choic-
es about which foods they put
into their bodies and support
with their pocketbooks.
Most Americans aren’t
aware that some 80 percent
of processed foods at gro-
cery stores contain GE (also
known as “genetically modi-
fied,” or GM) ingredients —
yet in polls 93 percent of us
support the notion of manda-
tory labeling of such foods.
At present the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration (FDA)
doesn’t require labels for
foods with GE ingredients.
Proponents of Just Label
It worry that genetically engi-
neered plants (and animals)
could wreak havoc on human
health and natural ecosystems,
given how little we know
about them and their abil-
ity to proliferate beyond our
control. Among the concerns:
There has been no long-term
health safety testing on GE
ingredients because they are
so new; unexpected mutations
can occur which can introduce
unknown toxins into the food
supply; the increasing use of
herbicide-resistant genes in
crops is leading to the overuse
of herbicides in general; and
the planting of GE crops that
are programmed to generate
their own pesticides means
that more pesticides are in
our farms and fields than ever
before. Perhaps most worri-
some of all is that, unlike
chemical pollution or even
nuclear contamination, so-
called “genetic pollution” (as
some critics refer to GE) can-
not be cleaned up after the
fact once the proverbial genie
is out of the bottle.
“What unifies many of
us is the belief that it’s our
right to know,” Just Label It
organizers report. The idea
for the campaign grew out
of a 2011 meeting of organic
stakeholders organized by
Organic Voices, a project that
documents the oral history of
organic farming and sustain-
able agriculture.
The first order of business
for the “Just Label It” cam-
paign was to submit a legal
petition—written by attorneys
at the non-profit Center for
Food Safety—to the FDA in
September 2011 calling for
the mandatory labeling of GE
foods for sale in the United
States. At this point, FDA
is taking public comments
on the petition and will issue
a final ruling on it later in
2012.
Consumers can make
their opinions on the topic
heard by FDA regulators by
customizing and submitting
the form letter available at
the JustLabelIt.org home
page. To date some 600,000
people have sent along com-
ments to the FDA due to the
campaign’s outreach efforts.
Just Label It aims to get that
number to one million by the
end of spring 2012, and is
now working with 450 dif-
ferent partner groups to help
spread the word. Campaign
organizers are hoping that this
outpouring of support will
resonate with FDA regula-
tors when it comes time for
them to decide whether or not
the U.S. should join almost
50 other countries--including
South Korea, Brazil, China,
and the European Union — in
requiring GE labeling across
the board.

I have recently delved into
some memoirs, feeling unusu-
ally bored of fictional fare.
One of these memoirs I decid-
ed to read lately was written
by the actress who plays Sue
Sylvester, one of
my favorite char-
acters on one of
my favorite TV
shows, Glee.
The actress’s
name is Jane
Lynch, and let
me tell you, her
memoir is fantas-
tic.
I’ve always
been a Jane
Lynch fan, from
when I first saw
her in Christopher
Guest’s mov-
ies (Best in Show, A Mighty
Wind) to some of her bit
parts in films (The 40-Year-
Old Virgin) to her current
gig which catapulted her into
superstardom, Glee.
Lynch has always played
strong characters that stand
out in ensemble pieces,
and there’s a certain depth
behind her eyes that’s always
intrigued me – something
that lets her audience know
that there’s more to her than
meets the eye. And there cer-
tainly is.
What is so great about
Happy Accidents, Lynch’s
autobiography, is that it is not
your run-of-the-mill, name-
dropping yawn-fest that
some celebrities’ books can
be. While she does detail her
journey from childhood and
her quest to become famous,
she does it all with so much
heart that I was rooting for
her from the beginning. Every
story she illustrates contains
a deeply moving internal
struggle that Lynch describes
for the reader.
One can’t help but
want this protago-
nist to succeed.
Lynch paints the
picture of her days
drinking and sub-
sequent admission
of alcoholism to
the difficult ordeal
of “coming out”
to her friends
and family and
embracing her
genuine sexual-
ity. She reveals
that she’s always
questioned herself, and she
would have liked to be more
relaxed in her younger years.
I was captivated by
Lynch’s heartfelt, honest
prose, and I couldn’t wait to
be able to pick my book up
again if I had to stop read-
ing for a while. I’m sad it’s
over. Reading this book is
like having a great conversa-
tion with a friend – always
fulfilling, definitely relatable,
and inspiring in ways you’d
have never dreamed.
If you’re a Sue Sylvester
or Glee fan, or simply some-
one who’s ever felt misun-
derstood or insecure, I highly
recommend this memoir. It
is well written, unabashedly
honest, insightful, hilarious,
and the kind of book you’ll be
recommending to your own
friends.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A
group of companies is plan-
ning a $900 million project
for processing natural gas and
natural gas liquids in eastern
Ohio, with some operations
expected to begin next year.
The plans announced late
Tuesday by Oklahoma City-
based Chesapeake Energy
Corp. include facilities for nat-
ural gas gathering, compres-
sion and processing. A facility
in Columbiana County will
process natural gas extracted
by various companies from
Ohio’s Utica shale. A separate
complex in Harrison County
will receive and process natu-
ral-gas liquids such as propane
and butane extracted from the
shale.
Chesapeake’s subsid-
iary, Chesapeake Midstream
Development, is developing
the project with M3 Midstream
LLC and EV Energy Partners
L.P. The trio and affiliates own
rights to drill more than 2 mil-
lion acres in Ohio, according
to the Akron Beacon Journal.
The Columbiana County
processing facility will have
an initial capacity of 600 mil-
lion cubic feet of gas per day,
while the Harrison County
site will have a capacity to
store 870,000 42-gallon bar-
rels and process 90,000 bar-
rels a day, the companies said.
The Harrison county facility
also will feature a rail-loading
facility.
A study by three Ohio uni-
versities predicted last month
that the state’s Utica shale
would create 65,000 jobs by
2015, along with $9.6 billion
in related economic develop-
ment.
Environmentalists and oth-
ers in the state have concerns
over the hydraulic fracturing
drilling process used to extract
oil and natural gas from shale.
That technique blasts the shale
with chemical-laced water.

COLUMBUS (AP) —
A plan by Ohio Gov. John
Kasich to tie higher taxes on
oil and gas drilling to an even-
tual reduction of the state-
wide income tax met with
opposition on multiple fronts
Wednesday.
The oil and gas industry
said the tax increase would
discourage investment com-
ing as a result of a boom
in Utica and Marcellus
shale drilling in the state.
Cleveland-based Policy
Matters Ohio, a liberal think
tank, said the tax hike on oil
and natural gas liquids within
the next two years should
be even higher than Kasich’s
proposed 4 percent.
Meanwhile, public safety
groups and advocates for the
poor argued revenue from the
increase shouldn’t be used for
income-tax relief at all. They
want to see money raised
reinvested in government pro-
grams hit with recent cuts.
“They’ve cut local gov-
ernments by 50 percent, and
local governments are where
the most essential services
are provided — police, fire,
emergency medical ser-
vices,” said Ohio Fraternal
Order of Police president
Jay McDonald. “And those
local governments are really
struggling to provide those
services because of the lack
of funding, and the state is
directly responsible for that
lack of funding.”
Kasich, a Republican, pro-
posed his one-two tax punch
as part of an unusual “mid-
biennium review,” which
revisits the state’s $57 bil-
lion, two-year operating bud-
get after just one year.
Kasich’s idea was inspired
by Congress, which passes a
budget annually. The former
congressman called his con-
cept historic, and the sweep-
ing policy proposals touching
energy, education, health care
and taxes necessary.
“Frankly, almost every
time I turn around I find
another piece of broken
Ohio,” the Republican gov-
ernor said in unveiling details
to reporters.
State budget director Tim
Keen said that as U.S. House
budget chairman in the 1990s,
Kasich became accustomed
to the cycle of annual budgets
in Washington. Keen said the
administration has spent the
past six months coming up
with its second set of big
policy priorities in as many
years. The current budget
cycle began July 1.

Study: Ohio’s
65-older pop.
grew 7.6 percent
CINCINNATI (AP) —
While Ohio’s population
growth has been nearly flat,
the number of residents 65 and
older has increased at a rate of
nearly 8 percent, underscoring
the growing need for senior
services.
A study released today by
Scripps Gerontology Center at
Miami University found that
Ohio’s 65-and-older popula-
tion is 14.3 percent of its 11.4
million people, after growing
7.6 percent in the decade end-
ing 2010. That’s up 1 percent
from a decade earlier, and the
state’s median age increased
from 36 to 38.
Nationally, 13 percent of
the population is 65 and older.
The Gerontology Center study
is based on analysis of U.S.
Census and Ohio demograph-
ic reports.
The Ohio Department
of Aging’s director, Bonnie
Kantor-Burman, said in a
statement that the report
shows “we must make bold,
sweeping changes now to pre-
pare to serve our growing and
changing population.”
The aging of the Baby
Boomer generation and lon-
ger life spans help contrib-
ute to the rising 65-and-older
population. The report shows
Ohio counties are using senior
services levies, with the larg-
est in Franklin and Hamilton
counties, to help provide in-
home help aimed at enabling
older residents to age in their
own homes.

WASHINGTON (AP) —
Vice President Joe Biden is
making his first major foray
into the 2012 presidential
campaign in Ohio, an effort by
President Barack Obama’s re-
election campaign to use the
frequently blunt Biden to com-
bat criticism from Republicans
and dish it right back at them.
In a speech today at a
United Auto Workers hall in
Toledo, Biden is expected to
offer a vigorous defense of
the president’s auto industry
bailout and a robust takedown
of GOP presidential candidate
Mitt Romney’s opposition to
the policy. The White House
says the president’s actions
saved 1.4 million U.S. jobs.
“The verdict is in: President
Obama was right and his crit-
ics were dead wrong,” Biden
says in excerpts of his pre-
pared remarks released by the
Obama campaign.
Biden’s daylong trip to
Ohio, the always-critical
political battleground, marks
the first of four general elec-
tion campaign events he will
hold in the coming weeks.
Campaign officials say Biden’s
speeches will frame the issues
at the core of the general elec-
tion and draw a stark contrast
between the president and his
GOP rivals.
“Stated simply, we’re about
promoting the private sector.
They’re about protecting the
privileged sector,” Biden says.
“We’re a fair shot, and a fair
shake. They’re about no rules,
no risk and no accountabil-
ity.”
Biden’s general election
blitz marks a new chapter for
the Obama re-election cam-
paign. While the three key
campaign principals — the
president, Biden and first lady
Michelle Obama — have all
been headlining campaign
fundraisers for several months,
the vice president is the first of
the trio to engage in official,
non-fundraising campaign
events.
The president isn’t expect-
ed to fully engage in the cam-
paign until the GOP picks its
nominee. And campaign offi-
cials say they’re still crafting
a campaign strategy for the
first lady.
Biden’s campaign strategy
has been in the works for sev-
eral months, and its early roll-
out underscores his importance
to the Democratic ticket.
In the lead-up to the
November election, Biden is
expected to target the big three
political battlegrounds — Ohio,
Pennsylvania and Florida. The
campaign’s goal is to use the
vice president’s strengths to
counteract Obama’s perceived
weaknesses.
The president sometimes
struggles to connect with
Ohio’s and Pennsylvania’s
white working-class voters.
Jewish voters, who make up
a core constituency for Florida
Democrats, view him with
skepticism. Biden has built
deep ties to both groups dur-
ing his four decades in nation-
al politics, connections that
could make a difference.
As a long-serving mem-
ber of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, Biden
cemented his reputation as an
unyielding supporter of Israel,
winning the respect of many in
the Jewish community. And
his upbringing in a working-
class Catholic family from
Scranton, Pa., gives the vice
president a valuable politi-
cal intangible: He empathizes
with the struggles of blue-col-
lar Americans.

WASHINGTON — Even
the top sponsor of a bill that
would cut off lawmakers’
pay if they can’t — or won’t
— pass a budget blueprint
admits many of his colleagues
think it’s just a political talk-
ing point instead of a serious
idea.
And the measure doesn’t
have support from the big-
wigs running Capitol Hill or
even the top members of a
Senate panel that held an offi-
cial hearing on the measure
Wednesday don’t support the
idea.
But frustration over
Congress’ failure to perform
some of its most basic tasks —
like not passing a budget for
almost three years — has law-
makers giving serious thought
to outside-the-box ideas like
“no budget, no pay.”
The idea is simple. If
Congress doesn’t pass a bud-
get and all 12 of the accom-
panying spending bills set-
ting annual agency budgets
on time, every lawmaker’s
paycheck would get cut off.
No exceptions.
“This proposal is like a
legislative scream,” said Sen.
Joe Lieberman, I-Conn, chair-
man of the Senate Homeland
Security and Government
Affairs Committee, as he
opened the hearing. “As
everybody knows, the pub-
lic’s estimation of Congress is
at historic lows. And there’s
ample reason why that is so.
Congress is just not fulfilling
some of the basic responsi-
bilities that the Constitution
gives us.”
The frustration is evident
on both sides.
“Congress has missed
so many budget and appro-
priations deadlines over the
years that no one takes these
deadlines seriously,” Rep.
Jim Cooper, D-Tenn., said.
“We often fund programs
on a short-term basis, some-
times month-to-month or
even week-to-week. Political
standoffs have even led to
complete government shut-
downs. This is inexcusable.
We no longer have ‘one
nation, under God, indivis-
ible,’ but ‘one nation, yet
again, interrupted.”’
No budget, no pay is the
brainchild of No Labels,
an almost 500,000-member
group started a little more
than a year ago by both
Democrats and Republicans
in hopes of easing the parti-
sanship and gridlock that has
engulfed Washington.
“The parties have orga-
nized themselves into warring
clans that value defeating the
other side over even the most
basic acts of governing, like
passing a budget on time,”
a statement on the group’s
website says.
The last time Congress
passed a budget was 1,050
days ago, way back in 2009.
That’s not the end of the
world since the annual con-
gressional budget resolution
is a nonbinding measure that
mostly sets goals for follow-
up legislation like the annual
appropriations bills. If there
isn’t a budget resolution in
place, such legislation — or
bills like last month’s exten-
sion of payroll tax cuts — can
still go forward.
Since Congress’ budget
often doesn’t have much of an
impact, congressional leaders
sometimes cancel the debate
altogether — especially in
election years, when votes on
it can expose rank-and-file
lawmakers to political risk.
But the failure of Congress
to pass a budget is symptom-
atic of the broader failure of
the institution to accomplish
feats that not long ago were
considered relatively routine.
And there’s a simple, power-
ful political appeal to the idea
that if members of Congress
don’t do their most basic job,
they shouldn’t get paid.
The top Senate sponsor is
Sen. Dean Heller, a Nevada
Republican who, not surpris-
ingly, is embroiled in a diffi-
cult re-election campaign. He
says the inability of Congress
to tackle the debt or figure out
what to do when the Bush-era
tax cuts expire at the end of
the year is contributing to the
weak economic recovery.

WASHINGTON —
Leaders of the United States
and Britain outlined plans
Wednesday to shift the NATO
war effort in Afghanistan
toward a back-seat adviso-
ry role while Afghan forces
increasingly take the lead, but
stressed that the two nations
remain committed to the mis-
sion there.
President Barack Obama
gave his fullest endorsement
yet for the mission shift, but
he said the overall plan to
gradually withdraw forces
and hand over security in
Afghanistan will stand.
Obama said he antici-
pates no “sudden, immedi-
ate changes to the plan we
already have,” for bringing
forces home.
The United States and
Britain have the largest fight-
ing forces in Afghanistan,
where the combat is in its
11th year. The U.S., Britain
and other NATO nations have
already agreed to keep forces
in the country through 2014,
when Afghan President Hamid
Karzai will leave office.
“At the upcoming NATO
summit in my hometown of
Chicago, we’ll determine
the next phase of transi-
tion,” Obama said follow-
ing a private meeting at the
White House with visiting
British Prime Minister David
Cameron. “This includes
shifting to a support role next
year in 2013 in advance of
Afghans taking full respon-
sibility for security in 2014.
We’re going to complete this
mission and we’re going to do
it responsibly.”
Obama acknowledged
the drop in public support at
home for the war. “People
get weary,” after long wars,
the president said, but he also
said he thinks most people
in both the U.S. and Britain
understand the reasons for
continuing the fight.
Cameron, who joined
Obama for a joint Rose Garden
news conference, said secu-
rity is better in Afghanistan
and he praised the U.S. strat-
egy to add more than 30,000
forces in a “surge” against the
Taliban-led militants in 2009.
“The situation is consid-
erably improved,” Cameron
said, and the goal of keeping
Afghanistan from again becom-
ing a terrorist haven is achiev-
able by the end of 2014.
Following the summer
fighting season, Obama said
NATO allies would look at
how to continue drawing down
forces at a gradual pace.
The Obama-Cameron
meeting came in advance
of May’s NATO summit in
Chicago, where a decision on
the timetable for withdrawal
from Afghanistan is expected
to be confirmed.
The White House discus-
sions follow the weekend
killings of 16 Afghan civil-
ians, allegedly by a lone U.S.
soldier, and the deaths of six
British troops last week in a
roadside bomb blast — the
largest loss of life in a single
incident for British forces in
Afghanistan since 2006.
On Iran, Obama insisted
there is still “time and space”
for a diplomatic solution, in
lieu of a military strike to set
back Iran’s progress toward
a possible bomb, but said
“the window for diplomacy is
shrinking.”
“We are determined to
prevent Iran from acquiring
a nuclear weapon,” Obama
said, adding that he had sent
a message “personally” to
the Iranian leadership that it
should re-enter international
arms talks in good faith.
“Tehran must understand
that it cannot escape or evade
the choice before it. Meet
your international obligations
or face the consequences.”
The White House lavished
Cameron with all the pomp
and pageantry of a state visit
as the two allies aimed stressed
their unity in dealing with
hot spots like Iran, Syria and
Afghanistan. At a welcoming
ceremony, military bands and
a large crowd were arrayed
before Obama and Cameron,
with Vice President Joe Biden
and top administration offi-
cials including Secretary of
State Hillary Rodham Clinton
standing for a 19-gun salute
and the national anthems of
both nations.

WASHINGTON — An
upbeat Rick Santorum bar-
reled into Puerto Rico on
Wednesday in pursuit of
another campaign-bending
victory in a Republican presi-
dential race where suddenly
no primary is too minor and
no delegate is conceded. Mitt
Romney put nearly $1 million
into television advertising in
Illinois, the next big-state
showdown.
“If we keep winning races,
eventually people are going to
figure out that Gov. Romney
is not going to be the nomi-
nee,” said Santorum, eager
to build on Tuesday’s unex-
pected victories in Alabama
and Mississippi.
Romney in turn dismissed
Santorum as a “lightweight”
as far as the economy is con-
cerned.
He also rebutted sugges-
tions that he can’t appeal to
core conservatives. “You
don’t win a million more
votes than anyone else in this
race by just appealing to high-
income Americans,” he said
on Fox News. “Some who are
very conservative may not be
in my camp, but they will be
when I become the nominee,
when I face Barack Obama.”
Romney travels to Puerto
Rico on Friday, after two days
in New York fundraising.
But in a reflection of the
importance of next week’s
Illinois primary, aides
announced he would make a
previously unscheduled cam-
paign stop in the Chicago area
en route to San Juan.
Newt Gingrich, despite
losing twice in the South, a
region he hoped to own in the
race, showed no sign of aban-
doning his fading campaign.
That presumably suited
Romney fine. But not so much
Santorum, eager for a race in
which he is the sole challeng-
er on the right for Romney,
the former Massachusetts
governor.
The events of the previous
24 hours neatly summarized
the most turbulent Republican
presidential campaign in a
generation.
Santorum’s primary vic-
tories in Mississippi and
Alabama were the product
of a wellspring of conserva-
tive support that overcame
Romney’s overwhelming
organizational and financial
advantages in the race to pick
a November opponent for
Democrat Obama.
Yet despite his twin defeats
in the South, Romney remains
the faraway leader in the dele-
gate chase. Incomplete returns
showed him actually adding
one or two to his advantage
because of overnight cau-
cus victories in Hawaii and
American Samoa.
That division — headline-
grabbing primary victories
versus routine accumulation
of delegates — emerged as an
increasingly significant point
of contention as Romney,
Santorum and Gingrich
selected facts and spun theo-
ries designed to put their own
hopes in the best light.
Romney’s aides point out
that he has more than half
the delegates picked so far,
and he has said he’s on track
to win the nomination before
the party convention opens in
August.
“Tuesday’s results actually
increased Governor Romney’s
delegate lead, while his oppo-
nents only moved closer to
their date of mathematical
elimination,” said a campaign
memo written during the day
for public circulation.

hood and is frequently not
diagnosed until later years.
At the upcoming support
group meeting there will be
discussion on the symptoms,
treatments, etc.

MEN’S TOURNAMENT
GLANCES
March Madness is upon us!
Run for your lives!
It’s a disease, I tell you, of which
there is no known cure — and maybe
one that we don’t WANT a cure for!
Make your picks and have fun/mourn
— I won’t reveal mine but I am already
resigned to the fact that by the Elite 8,
mine will be destroyed beyond human
recognition! Then I can just root for the
teams I want and root against the teams
I despise/hate/loathe/and even dislike a
little bit!
The Syracuse men’s basketball
team has had one tough year, much —
or all — of it self-imposed.
First there was the Bernie Fine “situ-
ation” — I’m being as delicate as pos-
sible for all my younger readers, you
222 — that went on for years and even
may land an ESPN station in trouble for
not reporting a possible crime.
Then there were the revelations of major
drug use in the program years ago.
Now, there’s the ineligibility of
Brazilian 7-0 center Fab Melo for the
NCAA tournament due to those issues.
The first two, I am making no judge-
ments; those are things that have to be
investigated and the facts brought to
bear. Where it will all end up, I have
no clue, but I hope that there will be a
resolution.
I have never been a fan of Jim
Boeheim but that doesn’t mean he — or
any of his lieutenants — is guilty of the
kinds of crimes and potential coverups
that his program is being accused of.
Even in the last issue, I might be will-
ing to cut them some slack. After all,
the NCAA rule book is such that I am
not sure even the powers-that-be could
interpret it accurately; heck, THEY may
not even know what’s all in it!
There are so many little nit-picking
items that even college compliance offi-
cers at each school are left shaking their
heads, muttering to themselves and run-
ning off screaming into that good night
about what is really OK and what is not.
I wonder how many people had their
picks in for the Final Four before this
news hit and included the Orangemen
in it.
Heck, March Madness is such that
they may still make a long run and even
win the doggone thing!!
Can’t people leave Tim Tebow
alone?
There’s the possibility that his Denver
Broncos may be in serious running to
land one Peyton Manning as their quar-
terback next fall.
If that were to happen, no question,
Tebow would be relegated to the bench.
I think he and every member of Sports
Nation knows that.
The talking heads have done what
they are supposed to do — talked about
him being traded because he won’t accept
being a backup, even to a unanimous
first-ballot (if any voter doesn’t vote for
him on that first ballot, the person should
be shot!) Hall-of-Famer into the Pro
Football Hall of Fame.
I probably agree with that. I think
that he has a certain amount of pride and
confidence that you have to have to play
at the highest levels of any sport.
Then they bring up the tired, old “he
can’t play quarterback in the National
Football League” blather.
I have news for these dunderheads: he
would not BE in the NFL if he couldn’t
play quarterback!
Then they turn around and say that
he has to be traded because manage-
ment wouldn’t want Tebow looking over
Manning’s shoulder.
Huh?
If Tebow “can’t” play, why would
he be “looking” for Peyton’s shoulder?
Because the fans would be clamoring
for Tebow?
Seriously? Over Peyton Manning?
Seems to be an admission that the guy
CAN play quarterback in the NFL if he
can even “pressure” Peyton Manning.
The fans sure aren’t going to pressure
any coach that has a brain into playing
Tebow over Manning, nor do I think the
fans WOULD do so, anyway.
Or could it be that there are questions
about Manning’s ability to play again
because of the neck issues that kept him
out this year.
That is a legitimate concern and as
yet, I don’t think he has worked out for
any team, though he has agreed to do so
for the teams that he is seriously inter-
ested in.
I have no doubt he can still play
at a high level, especially in the right
offense.
Will it be where he was two years ago
and before?
Only God knows that!
March Madness at fever
pitch; forget the doctor!

TOURNAMENT GLANCE
Bluffton rallies for
game one win in 8th
inning at Adrian
ADRIAN, Michigan - The
Bluffton University softball
team scored a run in the sev-
enth and another in the eighth
to pull out an improbable 2-1
win at Adrian College in the
opener on Wednesday. The
Bulldogs (7-4) took game
two by a 4-0 count
as Bluffton moved
to 8-6 on the sea-
son.
The home team
put three hits together in the
bottom of the first to take
a 1-0 lead when a Bertrand
single plated Katie Dewyre.
Pitching ruled for the next
five innings until Bluffton
threatened to score in the top
of the sixth. With two down,
Emily Manahan (Columbus/
Bishop Watterson) singled up
the middle but pinch-runner
Jenelle Theisen (Carleton,
MI/St. Mary Catholic Central)
was thrown out at the plate
trying to tie the game.
Bluffton finally broke
the ice an inning later when
Meagan Price (Toledo/
Springfield) laced an RBI sin-
gle to left center, plating fel-
low senior Chelsie Osborne
(Chillicothe/Waverly) from
second base. The Bulldogs
had runners on second and
third with one out in the bot-
tom of the frame but freshman
Megan Patton (Waynesfield/
Perry) came on and induced
a fielder’s choice at the plate
before fanning Bertrand to
send the game into extra
innings.
With the international tie-
breaker in place, the Beavers
were unable to get their
sacrifice bunt down to start
the eighth. However, Emily
Manahan contined her clutch
hitting with an RBI single
up the gut, sending freshman
Brittany Baker (Springboro)
home for a 2-1 lead. Patton
set Adrian down in order to
cinch Bluffton’s first vic-
tory over the Bulldogs since
Jayme Marbaugh pounded a
walk-off homer at the Rebel
Spring Games in 2009.
Freshman Chloe Shell
(Covington) was superb in
the circle, limiting a talented
Adrian club to just one run
on nine hits in 6.1 innings of
work. She fanned three and
did not issue a walk. Patton
improved to 3-1 after tossing
1.2 inning of scoreless relief
with one crucial strikeout in
the seventh frame. Manahan
paced the Bluffton offense
with three hits and the game-
winning RBI.
The home team again put
a run on the scoreboard in the
first inning when a wild pitch
allowed leadoff hitter Maggie
Hein to cross the dish in spite
of just one infield single for
the Bulldogs in the frame.
Bluffton managed one hit an
inning in the early going but
the Beavers were unable to
get to Eberhardt who tossed
13 innings on the afternoon.
Adrian ended any thoughts
of a re-enactment of game
one when the Bulldogs
took advantage of a
Bluffton error and
3-run triple by K.
Hinojosa in the bot-
tom of the fifth. The
Beavers went hitless
over the final three innings as
Adrian secured the split with
a 4-0 shutout.
Patton slipped to 3-2
after allowing four runs, one
earned, on four hits in five
innings of work. Sophomore
Kayla Owens (Cincinnati/
McAuley) worked a perfect
sixth for the Beavers.
Bluffton continues its run
through the top of the MIAA
when the Beavers welcome
Alma College on Friday.

Stephenson sets
career hits mark in
5-4 win at Oberlin
By Martin Kluk
Sports information intern
OBERLIN — In an
evenly-matched battle, the
Bluffton University baseball
team came out on top with
a 5-4 victory over Oberlin
College Wednesday at Dill
Field. The Beavers scored in
the top of the ninth when
Tyler Wright (Troy) drew a
bases-loaded walk, sending
Kevin Martin (Bryan) home
for what would be the game-
winning run. The Beavers
improved to 4-7 overall while
Oberlin drops to 2-3.
After the Yeomen grabbed
the lead with an early run
in the bottom of the sec-
ond, Martin led off the top
of the third with a single.
One out later, a wild pitch
moved Martin to second and
Miles Richardson (Granville/
Newark Catholic) drove him
in with a single, knotting the
game at one.
However, Oberlin came
right back and plated two
of their own in the bottom
of the third to grab a 3-1
advantage. Once again, the
Beavers answered with a run
in the top of the fourth. Tyler
Stephenson’s (Springfield/
Northwestern) second double
in three frames moved him
past Brad Buckingham and
Tony Moore into first place
all-time with 169 career hits.
He advanced to third on a sin-
gle by Wright before an Airic
Steagall (Hillsboro) sacrifice
fly cut the deficit to 3-2 after
four innings.
After a scoreless fifth,
Bluffton plated the tying
run in the sixth when Nick
Broyles (Toledo/Whitmer)
crossed the dish following
a Steagall ground ball. Ben
Roeschley (Graymont IL/
Flanagan) settled in nicely
after giving up three early
runs and he put together
three scoreless frames from
the fourth to the sixth, keep-
ing the Beavers in the game.
With two outs in the seventh,
Kyle Niermann (Napolean)
drilled a double to right cen-
ter and Richardson drove him
in with a base knock up the
middle.
An error in the bottom of
the seventh led to a tying run
by the Yeomen but Roeschley
pitched through it, going 6.1
innings for the Beavers. He
allowed three earned runs,
struck out four and did not
walk a batter. Halen Core
(Reynoldsburg) came on in
the seventh and was lights
out, surrendering only one hit
and striking out two to send
the game to ninth tied 4-4.
Martin led off the frame
with a base hit and went to
second on a sacrifice bunt by
Niermann. Richardson was
nailed by a pitch and both
runners moved up 90 feet on
a wild pitch. With two down,
the Yeomen chose to inten-
tionally walk Stephenson to
load the bases. It was the
wrong move as Wright drew
another free pass for the
Beavers and Martin crossed
the plate with the go-ahead
run, sending Bluffton into the
bottom of the ninth with a
5-4 lead. Core slammed the
door on Oberlin, striking out
two more in the bottom half
while earning his first col-
legiate win.
Stephenson needed one hit
to equal the career mark of
168 and he did just that to
lead off the second inning.
He made the record his own
in the fourth and followed
with a single in the sixth,
giving him 170 before draw-
ing a well-deserved inten-
tional pass in the ninth. In the
well-rounded effort, the team
had 11 hits with Richardson,
Broyles and Martin smacking
two apiece. Richardson and
Steagall drove in two runs
apiece in the victory while
Martin scored twice.
Bluffton returns to action
on Saturday when the Beavers
welcome Albion for their
home-opening doubleheader
at 1 p.m.

ASA urges permanent normal
trade relations with Russia
In advance of Wednesday’s
Senate Finance Committee
hearing on the implications
of Russia’s accession into the
World Trade Organization
(WTO) for the United States,
the American Soybean
Association (ASA) joined
more than 150 organizations
from across the business com-
munity in submitting a let-
ter urging the committee to
establish permanent normal
trade relations (PNTR) with
Russia.
“The pork and poultry
industries, which use soy-
bean meal in animal feed, are
poised to see great success
in Russia as income levels
rise and the demand for meat
increases. What benefits these
industries benefits soybean
farmers,” said ASA First Vice
President Danny Murphy, a
soybean farmer from Canton,
Miss. “Those potential posi-
tives, however, hinge on fur-
ther expansion of trade to
Russia. The establishment of
PNTR with Russia is criti-
cal to our ability to increase
soybean exports into Europe’s
largest consumer market and
the world’s 11th-largest econ-
omy.”
As part of the Coalition
for U.S.-Russia Trade, which
comprises businesses from a
wide range of industries, ASA
advocates the graduation of
Russia from the Jackson-Vanik
amendment to the Trade Act
of 1974, enabling Congress to
approve PNTR before Russia’s
expected entry into the WTO
later this summer.
“This legislation is crucial
in order for U.S. manufactur-
ers, service providers, agri-
cultural producers and their
employees to take advantage
of the many market-opening
and transparency commit-
ments that form Russia’s
accession package to the
WTO,” stated the Coalition.
“PNTR also gives the United
States a powerful tool by
enabling the United States to
ensure that Russia abides by
those commitments through
internationally binding WTO
dispute settlement.”
The United States has main-
tained normal trade relations
with Russia since the dissolu-
tion of the Soviet Union in
1992. Growth in the Russian
animal protein industry has
led to a significant increase
in demand for soybeans over
the past decade. Russia’s
main import partners, howev-
er, are Argentina, Brazil and
Paraguay, leaving room for
growth within the market for
U.S. soybean exports.
“Russia is an important
part of U.S. business’ global
strategy to create and sustain
jobs at home by enhancing
our long-term competitiveness
abroad. Many U.S. companies
have developed vibrant, profit-
able and rapidly-growing busi-
ness and trade with Russia,
with clear strategic benefits
to parent companies, exports
from, and employment in the
United States,” continued the
Coalition. “Without PNTR,
U.S. companies and their
employees will be left behind
our competitors in this grow-
ing and profitable market.”
ASA represents all U.S.
soybean farmers on domes-
tic and international issues of
importance to the soy indus-
try. ASA’s advocacy efforts are
made possible through the vol-
untary membership in ASA by
over 21,000 farmers in 31 states
where soybeans are grown.
Tickets are still available
for the 2012 Putnam County
Dairy Banquet on March 28
at the Kalida K of C hall.
The evening will begin
with dinner at 7:15 p.m., fol-
lowed by a short program and

NHL GLANCE
By RUSTY MILLER
The Associated Press
DAYTON — When Lamar
trailed by double digits in the
second half of its NCAA first-
round game on Wednesday
night, there was a lingering
feeling that the Cardinals had
Vermont right where they
wanted them.
Leads were poison on the
first night of the First Four
at the University of
Dayton.
But on the second
night, early advantages
lasted and the incred-
ible comebacks were
muted.
C o o l - h e a d e d ,
hot-handed freshman Four
McGlynn, who topped the
Catamounts with 18 points,
led the way in a 13-0 first-half
run that gave Vermont a lead
that it never let slip away in a
71-59 victory over Lamar.
In the nightcap, South
Florida’s nasty defense flirted
with perfection in paving the
way to a stunning 36-13 half-
time lead — yes, you read that
right, 36-13 — before cruising
to a 65-54 win.
The first two games of the
tournament, however, were
nightmares for teams in front.
Mississippi Valley State
blew a 16-point lead with
5:07 left in falling to Western
Kentucky 59-58. It was the
biggest comeback ever in the
final 5 minutes of an NCAA
tournament game.
Then came the biggest
comeback in NCAA tourna-
ment history. Iona scored 55
points in the first 16 min-
utes and built a 25-point lead
only to lose to BYU 78-72 in
Tuesday’s nightcap.
But apparently those incred-
ible turnarounds had only a
24-hour shelf life.
The win by Vermont (24-
11) sends it into a second-
round matchup with top-seed-
ed North Carolina on Friday in
Greensboro, N.C.
The biggest win in school his-
tory came in 2005 when 13th-
seeded Catamounts stunned
fourth-seeded Syracuse 60-57 in
overtime. This year’s team wel-
comes another shot at history.
“The Syracuse game was
a huge win for Vermont and
the community,” said forward
Brian Voelkel, who had only
three points but 12 rebounds.
“Obviously, we’re going to
come into North Carolina with
a lot of confidence and hope-
fully we can pull off another
upset and give the people of
Burlington something to cheer
about.”
The Catamounts, champi-
ons of the America East tour-
nament, played gritty defense
and also shot 50 percent
from the field, blend-
ing an inside presence
with McGlynn’s touch
from the perimeter.
Devon Lamb and
Mike James each had
16 points and Anthony
Miles 14 for Lamar (23-12),
which had won six in a row
since first-year coach Pat
Knight ripped his seniors after
a loss in late February. He said
then that they were “stealing
money being on scholarship”
and that his players had prob-
lems “off the court, on the
court, classroom, drugs.”
But after the NCAA loss,
an emotional Knight fought
back tears as he spoke about
players who he said would
turn the Lamar pro-
gram around.
“These guys did
a heck of a job of
leaving their legacy.
If there are people
that disagree about
that, they’re morons,” Knight
added, sounding a little like
his father, Hall-of-Fame coach
Bob Knight. “These guys just
made Lamar relevant again.
What a ride. These guys, boy,
I’ll be talking about them until
the day I die.”
Victor Rudd Jr. had 15
points, Anthony Collins 12,
Augustus Gilchrist 11 and
Jawanza Poland 10 in the
rout by South Florida (21-13),
which moves on to play fifth-
seeded Temple in Nashville on
Friday.
But it wasn’t the Bulls’
shooting — 57 percent from
the field — that left the biggest
mark on Cal (24-10). The Bulls’
defense contested every shot,
scrapped for every loose ball
and muscled away rebounds.
Collins had seen Mississippi
Valley State and Iona blow
those big leads. He wasn’t
going to let it happen to the
Bulls.
“Those teams played up
and down, playing fast, but
they still would come down
and take bad shots,” he said.
“We wanted to run some time
and get good shots.”
They sure did.
No wonder Cal coach Mike
Montgomery was so stunned by
the horror show of a first half.
“I didn’t imagine that hap-
pening,” he said.
It was the first NCAA tour-
nament win ever for South
Florida’s program.
“We’re all thrilled — the
president, the AD — it’s always
great to keep your bosses
happy,” coach Stan Heath said.
“But we didn’t want to come
here for just one game. We did
want to prove that we belong
and that we’re legit. The kids
took that to heart.”
NIT Capsules
PHILADELPHIA — Frantz
Massenat had 18 points and 14
assists and Chris Fouch added 19
points as Drexel shook off the disap-
pointment of not making the NCAA
tournament by trouncing Central
Florida 81-56 in the first round of the
NIT on Wednesday night.
The Dragons (28-6), out of the
Colonial Athletic Association, were
viewed as one of the bigger
snubs from the NCAA field;
coach Bruiser Flint made it
a point this week to say the
team would bounce back
and “try to go out and win
the NIT.”
So far, so good.
Drexel, which set a
school record for wins,
scored the first nine points and never
looked back. The Dragons led 37-24
at the half and will now prepare to
host Northern Iowa in the second
round next week.
Keith Clanton led the Knights
(22-11) with 12 points.
NORTHERN IOWA 67, SAINT
JOSEPH’S 65
Seth Tuttle sank two free throws
with 1.3 seconds left and finished with
23 points and 11 rebounds to lead
Northern Iowa over Saint Joseph’s.
Marc Sonnen scored 15 points
for the Panthers (20-13), who play at
Drexel in the second round.
Ronald Roberts Jr. tied the game
65-all for the Hawks (20-14) on a
thunderous dunk with 7 seconds left
to bring them back after they trailed
most of the second half.
Roberts fouled Tuttle before the
Hawks turned the ball over on their
last possession.
MINNESOTA 70, LA SALLE 61
Rodney Williams tied his career
high with 21 points, Austin Hollins
had 16 and Minnesota beat La Salle
to advance to the second round.
Andre Hollins added 13 points for
the Golden Gophers (20-14), who will
play Miami on Sunday. Minnesota
won the NIT in 1993 and ‘98.
The Gophers closed with a 15-6
run to give coach Tubby Smith his
100th win at the school. Only seven
coaches in the program’s history
have won at least 100 games.
Earl Pettis scored 19 points for La
Salle (21-13), while Ramon Galloway
added 13 and Jerrell Wright 12. It
was the first postseason game for
the Explorers since the 1992 NCAA
tournament.
MIAMI 66, VALPARAISO 50
CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Rion
Brown scored 18 points to help
Miami beat Valparaiso and advance
to a second-round matchup against
Minnesota.
The Hurricanes stretched a
4-point lead and finished the game
with a 16-0 run over the final 3:41.
Malcolm Grant and Shane Larkin
keyed the run with consecutive
3-pointers.
Larkin scored 12 points and Trey
McKinney Jones finished with 10
for Miami (20-12). The Hurricanes
played without leading scorer Durand
Scott, who began serving a 6-game
suspension after he was declared
ineligible last week for receiving
impermissible benefits.
NEVADA 68, ORAL ROBERTS
59
TULSA, Okla. — Dario Hunt
had 18 points and 10 rebounds to
help Nevada beat Oral Roberts and
advance to the second round.
Deonte Burton added 17 points
as the Wolf Pack (27-6) earned
a matchup against Bucknell, which
beat Arizona 65-54.
Burton, Olek Czyz and Malik
Story each had eight points in the
second half to help rally Nevada
after trailing 30-29 at halftime.
Dominique Morrison and Rod
Pearson had 13 points apiece for
the Golden Eagles (27-7), who were
outrebounded 45-29.
BUCKNELL 65, ARIZONA 54
TUCSON, Ariz. — Mike Muscala
had 20 points and nine rebounds to
help Bucknell advance to a second-
round matchup against Nevada.
Joe Willman had 15 points
and Bryson Johnson added 14 for
Bucknell (25-9), which dominated
from the opening tip and led by as
many as 13 in the first half.
The Wildcats briefly took at
2-point lead in the second half but
Bucknell held Arizona to 35 percent
shooting for the game.
Solomon Hill led the Wildcats
(23-12) with 17 points and nine
rebounds; senior Jesse Perry added
14 points. Arizona fell to 0-4 all-time
in the NIT.
ILLINOIS STATE 96,
MISSISSIPPI 93, OT
OXFORD, Miss. — Tyler Brown
scored 26 points, Nic Moore added
24 and Illinois State put on a record-
setting shooting display in a first-
round win over Mississippi.
Illinois State (21-13) set a Tad
Smith Coliseum record for 3-point-
ers, making 17-of-23 (73.9 percent)
from beyond the arc. Brown was
8-of-9, while Moore made all six of
his attempts.
LaDarius White scored 25 points
and Terrance Henry added 21 for
Ole Miss (20-14).
Brown put Illinois State up 61-49
after his seventh 3-pointer with 12:22
remaining in regulation and it looked
as if the Redbirds would cruise
but Ole Miss rallied to tie it at 84
and Jarvis Summers just missed a
10-foot jumper at the buzzer to send
it to overtime.

PRO BASKETBALL
NEW YORK — Mike D’Antoni
resigned as coach of the New York
Knicks, who are in danger of missing
the playoffs when he said they should
contend for a championship.
Facing a late-season skid and con-
tinued questions about his relationship
with Carmelo Anthony, D’Antoni put
the Knicks through a morning workout,
shortly before news broke that he was
stepping down.
New York has lost six in a row
for the second time this season and
has fallen into a tie for the eighth
and final playoff berth in the Eastern
Conference. The decision came just
hours after Anthony denied there was a
rift with D’Antoni.
SAN ANTONIO — Following
Orlando’s 122-111 loss to the Spurs on
the eve of the trade deadline, Dwight
Howard again urged the Magic front
office to take a chance and keep him
the rest of the season, rather than pull-
ing the trigger on their last chance to
get something in return for the NBA’s
best big man.
Howard won’t guarantee he’ll stick
around. He told the team before the
game that he will not void the early-
termination option in his contract; his
refusal to give the Magic the reassurance
he’ll be back may weaken Orlando’s
hesitation to trade its superstar.
PRO FOOTBALL
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. —
Calvin Johnson got the biggest contract
in NFL history and he wasn’t even a
free agent.
The All-Pro wide receiver’s 8-year
deal through the 2019 season is worth
$132 million, with $60 million guaran-
teed, surpassing the $120 million with
$50 million guaranteed being paid to
Arizona’s Larry Fitzgerald.
Another All-Pro, guard Carl Nicks,
left New Orleans for the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers and a 5-year contract.
Tampa has been among the busiest
teams in free agency, hardly surprising
after the Bucs slumped from 10-6 to
4-12 last year. Nicks joined CB Eric
Wright, who also got a 5-year deal.
Indianapolis made WR Reggie
Wayne’s return official and also signed
DE Cory Redding.
Wayne will get three years and
$17.5 million in what likely is the last
deal of his career. He’s likely to be the
No. 1 target for Andrew Luck, whom
the Colts are expected to take with the
top pick in the draft. The Colts also
swapped sixth-round draft picks with
Philadelphia to add offensive lineman
Winston Justice.
In other deals, Chicago agreed to
a 3-year contract with wide receiver
Eric Weems and brought back Josh
McCown on a 1-year deal, while new
St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher brought in
one of his regulars when he was with
the Titans, agreeing with CB Cortland
Finnegan on a 5-year contract.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Titans
coach Mike Munchak had a big smile
on his face when he left the team head-
quarters after daylong meetings with
Peyton Manning, who waved to fans
waiting for a glimpse of him and gave
a thumbs’ up.
They could be signs that Tennessee’s
pitch to the 4-time NFL MVP went
well, though no deals were announced
after Manning spent about eight hours
with Titans executives on a plane and at
the team’s headquarters.
The next move is up to Manning
and fans in Denver, Arizona, Miami and
Tennessee all are looking for clues on
which team Manning will pick.

Tomorrow’s
Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
30-year-old daughter
wants to marry man
she hasn’t even met
Dear Annie: A year ago,
my daughter met a man over
the Internet. That’s fine, but I
have the following issues:
1. She wants to marry him
without actually having met
him in person.
2. He is from a foreign
country where the customs
are vastly different from
ours.
3. I worry that he will
take advantage of her just to
remain in this country.
My daughter
says I am con-
cerned for no
reason. She is 30
years old and has
lived in a small
town most of her
life. How do I deal
with this appropri-
ately? -- Unsure
Mom
Dear Mom:
All of your issues
are valid and
worth discussing.
However, your
daughter is 30 years old. If
she chooses to go into mar-
riage without meeting the
man or learning more about
him and his culture, there’s
not much you can do to stop
her. Stay neutral. Suggest
that he come for a visit, say-
ing you are eager to meet
him and want to give them an
engagement party. Then do
so. We hope he is everything
she dreams of because the
downside is rather unpleas-
ant to contemplate.
Dear Annie: Is it accept-
able for kids to send thank-
you notes via email?
I was brought up in a more
traditional way, where thank-
you notes were always hand-
written. Of course, back then,
emails were not an option.
Frankly, I think any thank
you is better than no thank
you, and getting my kids to
sit down and write notes by
hand takes forever, and I’d
like them sent in a timely
fashion.
I’m sure my kids would be
more willing to send a quick
note via email, but I’m con-
flicted as to whether that’s
acceptable or not. -- Mom in
Connecticut
Dear Mom: Good news!
Yes, email thank-you notes
are acceptable, especially if
that is the best you’re going
to get. Please make sure
your children understand
that the note still has to be
appropriate and apprecia-
tive. But we also hope you
will continue to demon-
strate to your children how
much nicer it is to receive a
personal handwritten note.
This should not be a dying
art.
Dear Annie: “Upstate
New York” wrote that their
teenage babysitter drove his
kids to a local ice cream place
without permission. He fired
her with payment, the girl’s
mother got involved, and
now they aren’t speaking.
I am a retired New York
state trooper. In this state, it
is illegal for a newly licensed
17-year-old to drive young-
er children without a parent
in the car. Many states now
have a type of “graduated
licensing,” whereby as teens
age and gain experience, they
are allowed to have more
people in the car.
This babysitter made a
conscious choice to drive
those children without per-
mission from the parents.
I am positive the
parents would have
said “no” to this
little trip. Instead,
this devious girl
put the children at
risk. If there had
been an accident,
not only would the
teen face charges,
but her parents
might have been
held legally liable
because she drove
their car.
Several years
ago, a young babysitter and
her boyfriend loaded two
young children into her car
without the mother’s per-
mission. They went for a
ride on some backcountry
roads where there had been
recent flooding. Part of the
road gave way, and the car
plunged down a culvert into
the river. Everyone in the car
was killed.
Upstate doesn’t owe that
girl any money. She and her
mother owe the kids’ fam-
ily an apology and should be
grateful he didn’t report her
to the police. We need to be
vigilant when it comes to the
safety of children. -- Retired
NYSP
Dear Tracy Ayers: We
are in agreement that the girl
was clearly in the wrong.
However, we don’t believe
she was being devious. We
think she is immature and
showed extremely poor judg-
ment. We are thankful no one
was hurt.

FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 2012
You are likely to be in a favorable
growth pattern in the year ahead, not
only financially but personally as well.
Your gains may not come in large
doses, but they will be consistent,
impressive and make an imprint on
your personality.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --
If you have some time to devote to
a pleasurable pursuit, get out and go
someplace where you can meet and
mingle with new people. The change
will do you good.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Get out and mingle while your
popularity is at a high point. Even
those who might have been a bit
standoffish in the past will now orbit
around your flame.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) --
The best way to be successful is to
make sure that your thinking is totally
flexible, so that you’ll be able to see
things in a completely new light.
Having an open mind is the key.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Go
with the flow, even if what occurs is
far afield from what you were hoping
to do. New doors could be opened to
you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A
cooperative spirit will be a major asset
in all your relationships and should
make you a very popular person to be
around. Others will do for you what
you do for them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Because
life has been a trifle demanding of you
lately, try to take a few moments to
engage in something that you really
enjoy doing. The most gratifying thing
you can do is to be constructive.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) --
Social contacts can be enormously
useful at this time, helping you further
a special interest. Be sure to make
your needs known to your friends as
well as your family.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- In
order to finalize a matter, you must
keep uppermost in your mind what
you hope to accomplish. Lock in on a
target and you’ll find the results to be
extremely gratifying.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- You should take care of some old
business by getting your message
out on the Internet or by telephone.
Regardless of the method you use,
something fortuitous is likely to come
of it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) -- You might find that special
something you’ve wanted to purchase
but always felt was too expensive at
a price you’re willing to pay. Grab it:
You might not get a chance like this
again.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- Try to avoid people who have
a tendency to tie up your time. Your
personal freedom and mobility will be
of particular importance at this point.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Feelings of fulfillment and worth
will only come from things you do
for others, not from what you do for
yourself. Now is the time to make
good on your promises.
