Immunizations very important for infants

BY MIKE FORD DELPHOS Despite the lack of a national health threat from polio and other once-feared diseases, new parents shouldnt snuggle up to a false sense of security by hesitating to have babies immunized as their doctor recommends. The National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases has designated April 21-28 as National Infant Immunization Awareness Week. Pediatrician Celeste Lopez says vaccinations are extremely important for ones lifelong health. Immunizations are very important because they protect us and prevent a lot of diseases that kids could get exposed to. They also provide a herd immunity so kids who havent been immunized will also be protected, she said. If the majority of people are vaccinated, even if something does go around like, say, we had an outbreak of whooping cough then it doesnt tend to spread because most of the people are vaccinated but babies are at a high risk because you cant get your first immunization until 2 months. So, limiting the spread is important. Vaccines contain dead or weakened disease-causing organisms that are too weak to harm a child but trick the babys system into developing antibodies that will fight off the bacteria. Lopez details the vaccines administered in early childhood: There are several there is the DTaP that covers tetanus, whooping cough and diphtheria. Then, theres the polio vaccine; the HIB

that prevents against a form of meningitis; and Prevnar, which prevents against another form of meningitis; the hepatitis B vaccine; and the MMR that protects us from measles, mumps and rubella, she explained. In recent years, Actress Jenny McCarthy and other parents of children with Autism have expressed concern. Dr. Lopez says the medical community has addressed them adequately. A lot of parents have been worried about the MMR vaccine but there have been extensive studies on whether it has any association with Autism and those studies have shown there is no relationship between the vaccine and Autism, she said. Lopez points out that the immunizations offered are the result of past grappling with various diseases. We administer these vaccines because the diseases have been a problem at some point in history. For example, we had the Polio outbreak years ago but, fortunately, we dont have that anymore because of the vaccine. It could come back because there are still cases of it in other parts of the world and there is a lot of world travel, so we still administer the vaccine, she said. Also, the bacteria that causes meningitis are still around; two of them are the most common cause of ear infections but, if youre vaccinated, the likelihood of it causing meningitis is removed. The bacteria still go around and kids are still exposed to it but they arent getting the more serious forms of the disease.

Ohio gas prices Driver charged dip after surge with improper and concerns backing COLUMBUS (AP) Ohio
gasoline prices have dropped a few cents, mirroring a decrease in the national average. The average price for regular gas in Ohio is $3.71 a gallon in todays survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. Drivers in the Buckeye State were paying $3.79 last week and $3.87 a year ago. Prices have taken a downward turn after a four-month surge pushed gasoline to nearly $4 per gallon in early April. That left drivers, politicians and economists worried that prices might soar past all-time highs, angering voters and dragging down an economy that is struggling to grow. Nationally, the average price of regular gas is about $3.86.



State laws allow drilling even if owners object

By JULIE CARR SMYTH Associated Press COLUMBUS Retired police officer Ed Hashbarger is watching in anger as drillers converge on his part of eastern Ohio, at times gaining access to coveted oil and gas deposits through a state law that can trump objections of individual property owners. The U.S. Army veteran contends the practice called mandatory pooling violates his constitutional rights, his Catholic faith which calls for safeguarding the environment and what his country stands for. We do not defend the United States of America so the government can strip me of my rights to my land, said Hashbarger, who expects his land in Bloomingdale will soon be pooled as such deals engulf neighboring properties. Im furious over the whole thing. Mandatory pooling gives drillers the ability to overcome a landowners objections to drilling on his property if enough neighbors have agreed to the well drilling. The resisting landowner is paid for the oil or gas taken. Laws allowing mandatory pooling began springing up across the nation in the 1960s in response to what was seen Zimmermans bond hearing Friday took a surprising turn when he took the witness stand and apologized to the slain teens family for the loss of their son. But an attorney for Martins family spurned the apology. OMara told the network today that if hed known the family felt the timing of the apology was wrong, it wouldnt have happened. OMara said Zimmerman simply wanted to reach out to the family. Zimmerman, 28, fatally shot Martin, 17, during an altercation on Feb. 26 inside the gated community where Zimmerman lived. Martin was unarmed and was walking back to the home of his fathers fiancie when Zimmerman saw him, called 911 and began following him. A fight broke out investigators say it is unknown who started it. Zimmerman says Martin, who was visiting from Miami, attacked him. Zimmerman says he shot Martin in selfdefense, citing Floridas stand your ground law, which gives broad legal protection to anyas wasteful over-drilling. Such laws are drawing new criticism as hydraulically fractured wells reach more heavily populated areas, and public attention rises over oil and gas drilling in the Marcellus and Utica shale formations that lie under Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and other northeastern states. Natural gas drillers are swarming eastern Ohio where Hashbarger lives as new horizontal drilling technology has allowed access to previously unavailable oil and gas deposits in the shale. Ohio is among states that have been revisiting their drilling laws in order to capitalize on the investment and job creation potential. Laws on mandatory pooling were intended to assure that profits from drilling were shared among both willing and unwilling property owners, said John Keller, a Columbus lawyer who represents Ohio drillers in their pooling requests. The arrangement prevents neighbors from allowing drillers to suck resources from under anothers land without compensation, while allowing interested landowners to exercise their mineral rights. He said they were dubbed conservation statutes that would discourage several


Hearing planned for exotic animal quarantine

A Delphos woman was cited for improper backing following a two-vehicle crash near the intersection of Carolyn Drive and East Fifth Street. A vehicle driven by Julane Stockwell, 44, of Delphos was stopped in traffic behind another vehicle on Carolyn Drive at East Fifth Street when a vehicle driven by Regina Banbury backed from a parking space out onto Carolyn Drive, striking the Stockwell vehicle. No one was injured. Both vehicles sustained moderate damage.

Fight victim doesnt press charges

AKRON (AP) Volunteers have planted fruit trees, dogwoods and crab apple trees below a northeast Ohio bridge in memory of dozens of people who jumped to their deaths there. The trees were planted Sunday near Akrons All-America Bridge or Y-Bridge, which is sometimes called the Suicide Bridge. Its been the site of 34 suicides since 1997. Years of concern led to a nearly $9 million project to install a fence and make other changes to keep more people from jumping from the span. Dana Starvaggi helped plan the memorial and tells the Akron Beacon Journal its a way to put something positive in an area plagued by a feeling of emptiness.

Memorial trees planted near Suicide Bridge

At 9:12 p.m. on Sunday, Delphos Police were called to the 200 block of Holland Avenue in reference to a fight in progress in that area. Upon officers arrival, they located and spoke with the victim who advised a friend had been at the residence at which time a physical altercation had occurred. The victim stated he did not wish to pursue charges at this time. The victim was transported by a friend to a local hospital for medical assistance.

neighbors from each drilling wells extending down into the same deposit like several straws going into the same Coke bottle. That was seen as both blighting the landscape and shrinking profits for everyone involved by reducing the underground pressure that dictates how much oil or gas is produced. People were spending more money and getting less as a result, Keller said. After Marcellus Shale exploration took off in 2008 and 2009, natural gas industry lobbyists in Pennsylvania put pooling at the top of their priorities list, but no legislation has been introduced. Gov. Tom Corbett, who is viewed as an industry ally, has said he opposes it, calling it tantamount to private eminent domain. Pennsylvania has an unused and outdated pooling law that applies to a different gas formation below the Marcellus Shale.

REYNOLDSBURG (AP) A state-appointed lawyer is set to hear arguments today over Ohios quarantine order for five animals kept at a zoo since an exotic animal escape in October. The Columbus zoo began caring for three leopards, two primates and a bear after their suicidal owner released dozens of animals that had to be killed by authorities near Zanesville. One leopard was euthanized after it was struck by a door lowering between two enclosures. The owners widow, who demanded the appeal hearing, questions whether the state had the authority to quarantine the animals on the suspicion of potential dangerous infectious diseases. The widow has sought medical testing to prove the quarantine isnt needed.

Northeast Ohio threatened with spring snowfall

CLEVELAND (AP) A spring storm expected to hit hardest today could drop up to eight inches of snow on portions of northeast Ohio while producing high winds across most of the northern half of the state. Cleveland-based National Weather Service meteorologist Will Kubina says the storm could cause significant power outages as snow weighs down tree branches that already have most of their leaves. Kubina says the worst of the storm was expected through the day and into tonight. Ashtabula, Mahoning and Trumbull counties are among those forecast to see the heaviest snow along with temperatures in the 30s, while cities farther west such as Cleveland could get no more than an inch.

Zimmerman worked at a mortgage risk-management company at the time of the shooting and his wife is in nursing school. A website was set up to collect donations for Zimmermans defense fund. It is unclear how much has been raised. Bail is not unheard of in second-degree murder cases, and legal experts had predicted it would be granted for Zimmerman because of his ties to the community, because he turned himself in after he was charged last week, and because he has never been convicted of a serious crime. Prosecutors had asked for $1 million bail, citing two previous scrapes Zimmerman had with the law, neither of which resulted in charges. In 2005, he had to take anger management courses after he was accused of attacking an undercover officer who was trying to arrest Zimmermans friend. In another incident, a girlfriend accused him of attacking her. Speaking today on CBS This Morning, Zimmermans attorney, Mark OMara, said Zimmerman would not have apologized to the Martin family during Fridays bond hearing if OMara had known the family felt it was the wrong time.

one who says they used deadly force because they feared death or great bodily harm. Zimmerman was not charged for over six weeks, sparking national protests led by Martins parents, civil rights groups and the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Martin was black; Zimmermans father is white and his mother is from Peru. Earlier Sunday, Zimmermans attorney was working to secure the money for bail and a safe place for Zimmerman to stay. But residents in Sanford, where Martin was killed, didnt expect a ruckus once Zimmerman was released. City commissioners said they hadnt received calls from nervous residents. Protesters didnt show up outside the jail. And talk at one local coffee shop seldom focused on the case. Its just kind of a non-issue now, said Michele Church, a server at Mels Family Diner. Thats pretty much all anybody in Sanford wanted, was an arrest, so it could be sorted out in the court system.

What is fame? The advantage of being known by people of whom you yourself know nothing, and for whom you care as little. Lord Byron, English poet (1788-1824)

In 1972, EPA battled pollution; now its politics

By DINA CAPPIELLO Associated Press WASHINGTON A polluted drainage ditch that once flowed with industrial waste from Lake Charles, La., petrochemical plants teems with overgrown, wild plants today. A light-rail line zips past the spot where a now-defunct Portland, Ore., gasoline station advertised in 1972 that it had run out of gas. A smoking Jersey City, N.J., dump piled with twisted, rusty metal has disappeared, along with the twin towers of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan that were its backdrop. Forty years after the Environmental Protection Agency sent an army of nearly 100 photographers across the country to capture images at the dawn of environmental regulation, The Associated Press went back for Earth Day this year to see how things have changed. It is something the agency never got to do because the Documerica program, as it was called, died in 1978, the victim of budget cuts. AP photographers returned to more than a dozen of those locations in recent weeks, from Portland to Cleveland and Corpus Christi, Texas. Of the 20,000 photos in the archive, the AP selected those that focused on environmental issues, rather than the more general shots of everyday life in the 1970s. Gone are the many obvious signs of pollution clouds of smoke billowing from industrial chimneys, raw sewage flowing into rivers, garbage strewn over beaches and roadsides that heightened environmental awareness in the 1970s, and led to the first Earth Day and the EPAs creation in 1970. Such environmental consciousness caused Congress to pass almost unanimously some of the countrys bedrock environmental laws in the years that followed. Todays pollution problems arent as easy to see or to photograph. Some in industry and politics question whether environmental regulation has gone too far and whether the risks are worth addressing, given their costs. Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney has called for the firing of EPA chief Lisa Jackson, while GOP rival Newt Gingrich has said the EPA should be replaced altogether. Jackson has faced tough questioning on Capitol Hill so often tin the past two years that a top Republican quipped that she

One Year Ago Nominations for the second annual Hall of Honor induction are currently being sought in an effort to recognize outstanding graduates, or former employees of the district, as well as any others whose achievements have reflected positively upon the Delphos City School District in some significant way. 25 Years Ago 1987 A ground-breaking ceremony will be held Sunday for a new 53-unit apartment complex to be constructed at Delphos Memorial Home, 1425 E. Fifth St., James Deffenbaugh, planning chairman, announced. He said the apartments are being built by the Arnold C. Dienstberger Foundation Inc. Catherine Wittler has authored several books. The most recent, An Only Son, a novel of Fort Jennings, is the saga of a group of Roman Catholics from Hessen, Germany, who settled in Fort Jennings. Her husband, Albert, was born and raised on a farm near Fort Jennings. The book, along with two others, In His Place and The Bungalow, are available at Fort Jennings branch library. The newly-formed Spencerville Retail Merchants Association Tuesday night adopted a wooden nickel program, designed to encourage shopping at local merchants, Dean Macwhinney, vice president, announced. The program would involve the distribution of wooden tokens with discounts of services, by local businessmen. 50 Years Ago 1962 The Peoples National Bank has received delivery of its new IBM Selectric typewriter, one of the first of this new type typewriters delivered and placed in use in the Delphos area. The demand for this Selectric Typewriter has become so great that the company is not promising delivery of these new typewriters for almost a year at the present time. City police and the sheriffs departments of Allen and Van Wert counties today are investigating the strong-arm robbery of Dickmans Sinclair Service Station, 732 W. Fifth St., early this morning. Bernard Barney Korb, who was working at the station at the time of the holdup, reported the matter to police at 2:55 a.m. The annual pre-school clinic will be held Thursday morning in the Franklin School auditorium, it was announced jointly today by Robert H. Christy, superintendent of Delphos City Schools, and the Rev. Thomas W. Kuhn, acting superintendent of St. Johns Schools. The clinic will be for all children who will be entering Franklin, St. Johns or Landeck schools next fall. 75 Years Ago 1937 Fourteen coed singers of the Wittenberg College chapter of Alpha Delta Pi sorority, under the direction of Olga Leilich, will sing three songs over WLW Cincinnati on Sunday. The broadcast is in connection with the district conclave of the sorority which will be held in Cincinnati. Miss Leilich, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Leilich, East Fifth Street, is a senior at Wittenberg and the beauty queen of the college. Donald Jacomet, chairman of the kittenball activity under the Delphos Recreation Association sponsorship, is now ready to accept applications from sponsors who plan to have teams to represent them in the league play in Delphos this summer. There has been much talk of kittenball in Delphos during the past few weeks but no definite action has been taken to start the ball rolling. Final plans are being completed for the selection of Queen Jubilee, the sixth, who will reign at the Van Wert Peony Festival which will be held June 9 at Van Wert. Delphos will have more than ordinary interest in the selection of the Queen this year. The Jefferson High School candidate is Idabell Cross, who will be representing Delphos. A former Delphos girl, Jill Clare King, has been selected to represent Van Wert.


WASHINGTON (AP) In a rebuke to the White House, government auditors are calling for the cancellation of an $8 billion Medicare program that congressional Republicans have criticized as a political ploy. The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office says in a report to be released today that the $8.3 billion the administration has earmarked for quality bonuses to Medicare Advantage insurance plans would postpone the pain of cuts to the plans under the new health care law. Most of the money would go to plans rated merely average. The administration is defending the program, saying that without the bonuses many plans wouldnt have an incentive to improve quality. But Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, says the GAO report suggests the administration abused its authority, pumping money to the plans to avoid more criticism over unpopular cuts. Medicare Advantage is a popular private insurance alternative to the traditional health care program for seniors. More than 3,000 private plans serve nearly 12 million beneficiaries, about one-fourth of Medicare recipients. They offer lower out-of-pocket costs, usually in exchange for limitations on choice. President Barack Obamas health care law trimmed Medicare Advantage to compensate for prior years of overpayments that allowed the plans to offer attractive benefits and pocket healthy profits. Republicans fiercely attacked those cuts during their successful campaign to take control of the House in 2010 midterm elections. Seniors, a key constituency of swing voters, responded by backing GOP candidates. After the election, administration announced what it called a demonstration program to test whether a generous bonus program would lead to faster, broader improvements in quality. (The health care overhaul law had already provided a smaller bonus program only for top-rated plans.)

Auditors want to end Medicare bonus program

Obama strong in swing states as economy improves

WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama with the help of a slowly improving U.S. economy is gaining ground in many of the 14 states where the presidential contest with Republican Mitt Romney hangs in the balance. Recent polls have shown Obama gaining an edge over Romney in several so-called swing states. Voters in those states do not reliably support the candidate of either the Republican or Democratic party. Their importance derives not only from their unpredictability but also from the U.S. presidential election process, which depends on the electoral college and not the popular vote. In 2000, for example, Democrat and former Vice President Al Gore won the most popular votes nationwide, but former President George W. Bush won the presidency because he rolled up more electoral college votes. That race finally was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in a hugely controversial ruling that votes in Florida, which initially showed Bush as winner, would not be recounted statewide. That gave Bush all of Floridas 27 electors and the presidency. The electoral college is a product of the earliest years of American history and was put in place to protect the interests of small-population states. It was a compromise among the founding fathers, who wrote the U.S. Constitution. Some wanted the president chosen by Congress, others wanted the popular vote to determine the election. Under the compromise, the electoral college grants the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote in each state the number of electors allocated to that state. Each state has one elector for each member of the House of Representatives. The number of House members is allocated according to population, with the smallest-population states having only one representative. But each state, regardless of population, has two senators and, therefore, two electors in the college. Thus, smallpopulation states are granted fewer electors but have proportional power according to population. There currently are 438 members of the House and 100 Senators, a total of 538 electors. The winning presidential candidate must accu-

needs her own parking spot. To a certain extent, we are a victim of our own success, said William Ruckelshaus, who headed the EPA when it came into existence under Republican President Richard Nixon and was in charge during the Documerica project. Right now, EPA is under sharp criticism partially because it is not as obvious to people that pollution problems exist and that we need to deal with them. Environmental laws that passed Congress so easily in Ruckelshaus day are now at the center of a partisan dispute between Republicans and Democrats. Dozens of bills have been introduced to limit environmental protections that critics say will lead to job losses and economic harm, and there are those who question what the vast majority of scientists accept that the burning of fossil fuels is causing global warming. In the 1970s, the first environmental regulations were just starting to take effect, with widespread support. Now, according to some officials in the oil and gas and electric utility industries, which are responsible for the bulk of emissions and would bear the greatest costs, the EPA has gone overboard with rules. mulate 270 electors half plus one to win the White House. The presidential election, thus, amounts to 51 the number of U.S. states plus Washington, D.C. individual winner-take-all elections. The swing states are Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. Current polling shows Obama leading in eight, Romney in three and three with new polling unavailable. The unemployment rate, a key measure of economic recovery, has dropped more sharply in several swing states than in the nation as a whole. A resurgence in manufacturing is helping the economy and Obamas chances in the industrial Midwestern states of Ohio and Michigan. And Arizona, Nevada and Florida, where unemployment remains high, are getting some relief from an uptick in tourism. The Great Recession of 2007-2009 hit several swing states particularly hard. Unemployment peaked at 14.2 percent in Michigan, where the auto industry faced ruin.

Moderately confused

NEW YORK I think it is fair to say that the shark has been permanently displaced by the dog. When scriptwriters have run out of mustard, the show hasnt jumped the shark, as weve been saying since the Fonz literally jumped a shark while water-skiing. These days, the political show has eaten the dog. Yes, it has come to this. Its the most pivotal presidential race in human history (staying true to our apocalyptic tendencies), and were debating which candidate cares most about dogs. I did my best in a previous column to illustrate the silliness of the Obama campaigns focus on a 30-year-old Romney/ dog travel episode, but, alas, I misjudged our capacity for the absurd. As I was hitting send, the Romney campaign was touting an anecdote from Barack Obamas memoir in which he mentions having once consumed dog meat. (Confession: I only scanned the memoir and failed to seek out dog eating in the index.) Rarely do I return so soon to a topic, but the zeitgeist is a persistent nag, and the volume of my mail suggests that this story has become more than a political metaphor. Not to overstate, but it has become a measure of our national sanity. Things are not looking good, my friends.

Pardon my zeitgeist

KATHLEEN PARKER the dog theme has taken on

to Obama. As these things go,

Point of View
Republicans were so gleeful to have found a worse dog story about Obama that they have lashed out with Kujoesque rabidity. Sure, Romney may have carted his dog Seamus in a crate strapped to the roof of his car, but Obama ATE DOG! So there, Ms. Parker. Why didnt you mention THAT in your little column, you (female canine)! Even a close friend, who usually can be relied upon to tackle complex issues with calm, intellectual reserve, emailed: I guess its better to eat your dog! Are we really arguing about whether eating a dog is worse than putting one in a kennel? On television, Obama surrogates are defending the presidents dog-eating days. He was a child living in Indonesia, where dogs sometimes get eaten. Its not as though he looked Rufus in the eye and said, Yum, Ma, Im in the mood for a little roast pooch. The thought of eating mans best friend is, of course, repulsive to us as it is, no doubt,

barking-mad dimensions. A pro-Romney poster features a puppy with the caption: Romney 2012: Id rather go for a ride with Mitt than be eaten by Obama. Campaign buttons show a dog like Bo and the caption: Donate or Barack Will Eat Me. I dont know whether to page Sigmund Freud or Anthony Bourdain, but I think I can say without fear of contradiction that Obama doesnt secretly harbor culinary designs on Bo. One does wonder, however, what the rest of the world must think of us? Is this what happens to old democracies? Are we too silly to be taken seriously anymore? A rock star is revered for ranting about guns; Secret Service agents on presidential detail allegedly hire and then try to cheat prostitutes; and presidential candidates run on their canine histories. If we look ridiculous to the rest of the world, and surely we do, why dont we look ridiculous to ourselves? Now there is a question worth pondering. We seem to have come unhinged, as well as inured to offense. The silly and the immoral blend into a stand-up routine. When a punch line becomes a campaign slogan, the ridiculous becomes sublime.

As to how weve gone to the dogs, the answer is familiar. Humans like spectacle, and Americans in particular prefer humor to malaise. For the latter, we can be grateful. On the whole, however, this Bo vs. Seamus debate is a luxury of full stomachs. That we tend to anthropomorphize animals is an understatement given that Americans spend about $50 billion a year on their family pets. Thus, eating a dog is viewed as tantamount to cannibalization. Installing a dog in a crate for 12 hours atop a speeding car may as well be child abuse. And, lets face it, were weary of the big problems. Just as one can sustain outrage (or any emotion) only so long, one can entertain the prospects of a melting planet, massive unemployment or dysfunctional government for just so many months. The endless presidential campaign hasnt only taken a toll on the candidates, it has exhausted a nation. Dog-tired of chatter, spin and politics, were all too happy to avert our gaze from the inconceivable to the insignificant. As narratives go, we have eaten the dog.

Bluffton took game one 8-1 before finishing off the home team 11-1 in five innings in the finale. The Beavers outscored RoseHulman and Franklin 35-2 in just 22 innings on Saturday and Sunday. Freshman Jessica Kuzara (Flat Rock, Mich./Huron) doubled and scored to get the Beavers on the board in the second. Bluffton followed that up with three runs in the third. Katie Clark (New Palestine, Ind.) drew a 1-out walk and moved to second on an Emily Manahan (Columbus/Bishop Watterson) single to center. Lindsay Robertson (Cincinnati/ Northwest) picked up Clark with a base knock before Kuzara singled home pinch runner Chelsea Weitz (Dayton/ Carroll). A sacrifice fly to center by Mackenzie Bedlion (Marshallville/Smithville) made the score 4-0. Alli Stropes homered to left with one out in the bottom of the third but the Beavers responded with a pair of runs in the fourth. Clark plated seniors Meagan Price (Toledo/Springfield) and Chelsie Osborne (Chillicothe/ Waverly) with single up the

middle for a 6-1 lead midway through the fourth. Robertson made it 8-1 with her first career dinger in the sixth. Kayla Owens (Cincinnati/McAuley) did the rest, setting the Grizzlies down in order in the sixth and seventh. She worked two perfect frames of relief. Starter Megan Patton (Waynesfield/Perry) improved to 8-6 with a dominating 5-inning performance. She limited Franklin to one run on just two hits with four strikeouts and four walks. Clark was on fire, going 3-of-3 with two RBI and two runs scored. Robertson went 2-of-4 with three RBI and two runs. Manahan and Kuzara both chipped in with two safeties in game one. A Clark homer to right put Bluffton up 1-0 in the first inning of game two. Following a Franklin inning in which the Grizzlies made it 1-1 thanks to three hits. The Beavers added a single score in the second and two more in the third. Shelby Wade (Delaware/Buckeye Valley) singled home Bedlion in the second, while Manahan and Robertson drove in runs an inning later for the 4-1 advantage. The visitors broke it wide open with five tallies in the fourth en route to a 9-1 lead. Erford and Osborne both knocked in runs before Clark equaled the Bluffton school record with her second home run of the game, a 2-run blast to right center. It was her third bomb of the weekend. Bluffton tacked on a pair of unearned runs in the fifth as pinch-hitter Jo Bondra (Highland Heights/Mayfield) and Price crossed the plate on Osbornes double to the wall in right center. Owens worked three perfect innings of relief, improving to 4-3 with the 11-1 victory. Chloe Shell (Covington) allowed one run on four hits in two innings on the rubber. Clark blistered the Grizzlies, capping a 6-of-7 afternoon with a 3-of-4 performance in game two. She drove in three with her two dingers and scored three times. Osborne went 3-of-4 with three RBI. Robertson and Bedlion both chipped in with two hits in the finale and Bedlion scored two runs. With the wins over RHIT and Franklin this weekend, Bluffton is assured of being either the #2 or #3 seed at #1 seed Anderson in the HCAC tournament. The Beavers meet up with Transylvania at Lexington, Ky., next Saturday in a showdown which will likely determine who is the home team in the first game of the HCAC tournament. Bluffton will return home for a non-conference doubleheader with Ohio Wesleyan on Thursday. The first contest is slated for 3:30 p.m.

Rain halts Limaland Motorsports Park seasonopener prior to Features

The Delphos Herald LIMA The precipitation that had washed away the opening seven weekends of action in 2011 at Limaland Motorsports Park struck again in 2012, although on this occasion it waited until just prior to the three scheduled feature races. The weather system was strong enough that track officials quickly determined the evenings program would be halted. The night started with the usual large crowd at the western Allen County speed plant marking the 77th year of racing on the same site and the 15th season under the ownership of operation of the University of Northwestern Ohio. 2011 Elwer Fence Sprint car champion Kyle Sauder and defending Engine Pro NRA Sprint Invaders champion Randy Hannagan were among the four cars in the 5-lap McDonalds Dash for Cash. Hannagan broke to the front at the start and was unchallenged on his way to the victory. Results from the preliminary races establish the starting fields for what track officials have announced will be double features in the Budweiser Thunderstocks and K & N UMP Modifieds on Friday. The Engine Pro NRA Sprint Invader feature will be competed on May 11, when the NRA teams are scheduled to return to Limaland Motorsports Park. Action resumes on Friday for the Spring Fling, with the Elwer Fence Sprints, K & N UMP Modifieds and the Budweiser Thunderstocks set to compete. Gates open at 5 p.m. with hot laps beginning at 6:30 p.m. Racing starts promptly at 7:30 p.m. with the makeup features postponed (Continued from Page 6) Warnecke but Wood fanned the next three. The Cougars loaded the sacks with two down in the seventh: an error (Wood), a walk (Stoller) and another miscue (McClellan); but Klausing fanned the final batter. For St. Johns head coach Dan Metzger, it was a mixed day. We showed good patience at the plate; we didnt chase balls out of the strike zone, especially with two tough strike zones, and we hit the ball when we had the chance. However, we left way too

It seemed like just a few short years...

many runners on base; we need to be more consistent inning to inning, he said. Our pitching continues to be solid. Troy hasnt gotten many innings this year and Ryan hasnt really pitched since early in the season. Its the defense that was disappointing. We struggled there today because we lost our focus. We turned it around after the second inning of the first game but the second game is not how we play baseball. We will spend some time in practice (today) on that area. For Van Wert coach Charlie Witten, it was disap-

pointing all around. This was the sixth games in six days but thats no excuse. Though Mason and Tyler are not our aces, they have thrown some innings this year, Witten added. Its the mental focus and mechanics that were way off today. We can only do so much; it comes down to execution, whether pitching, at the plate or on defense. We have to get that mental toughness all around. The Jays (14-3) return to action Tuesday (5 p.m.) at Versailles in MAC action; the Cougars (9-12) host WBL foe Celina.

Think Like a Man muscles in at Number 1 with $33M

By DAVID GERMAIN The Associaed Press LOS ANGELES The date-night movies Think Like a Man and The Lucky One finally have knocked The Hunger Games off its No. 1 box-office perch. Think Like a Man, based on Steve Harveys dating-advice best-seller, debuted as the top weekend draw with $33 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Thats almost double what studio executives had expected for the Sony Screen Gems ensemble movie, which features Michael Ealy, Taraji P. Henson and Gabrielle Union. The Warner Bros. drama The Lucky One, starring Zac Efron in an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks romance novel, opened at No. 2 with $22.8 million. It also came in a bit above studio expectations going into the weekend. Think Like a Man was produced for about $13 million and took in nearly that much on opening day Friday alone, with business getting even better on Saturday. Sony executives had figured the movie might pull in about $17 million for the whole weekend. It was a wild ride. It just got better and better as the night went on Friday. Then to be up so much on Saturday, said Rory Bruer, head of distribution at Sony. Lionsgates blockbuster The Hunger Games took in $14.5 million, slipping to third-place after four weekends at No. 1. The film raised its domestic total to $356.9 million. The Hunger Games added $13 million overseas, where its total now stands at $215.8 million, for a worldwide haul of $573 million. Disneys nature documentary Chimpanzee opened at No. 4 with $10.2 million. Despite some healthy newcomers, Hollywoods overall revenues dipped for the second weekend in a row. Domestic receipts totaled $129 million, down 5 percent from the same weekend last year, when Rio led with $26.3 million, according to box-office tracker Revenues likely will decline again next weekend, with no huge newcomers expected to come close to the $86.2 million debut

of Fast Five over that same weekend last year. But business should shoot back up after that as the superhero ensemble The Avengers launches one of Hollywoods biggest summer lineups ever over the first weekend of May. Fast Five basically performed to summer box-office numbers in pre-summer last year, said analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Were not going to have a Fast Five in late April this year, but thats OK, because weve got Avengers a week later, and thatll more than make up for it. So far in 2012, domestic revenues are a t $3.1 billion, up 16.6 percent from last years, according to Paramounts 3-D version of James Camerons blockbuster Titanic added $5 million to bring its three-week domestic total to $52.8 million.

Tomorrows Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, APRIL 24, 2012 In the year ahead, try to arrange your life in ways that allow you to take some brief trips to places youd like to visit. Excursions of this ilk will attract new people into your life wholl make a big difference in terms of happiness. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Because material conditions are holding steady at this point in time, theres a strong likelihood that you could have a little surplus in hand. Why not get yourself something special? GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you are planning on going someplace where you could run into someone whom youre anxious to impress, take extra time to primp a bit. Feel good about yourself, and others will too. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Follow your compassionate instincts when they urge you to do something nice for another. However, its important that you do so with as little fanfare as possible if you want to make the correct impression. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A huge hope or an expectation might be fulfilled through the good auspices of an old friend. Be sure to acknowledge with proper gratitude all that he or she does for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Theres a strong possibility that you could learn a very valuable lesson: Happiness is not based on how much you possess, but by interacting with loving people whom you respect. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -You never underestimate the power of kind words, and youll use them to bolster the spirits of another who is down on his or her luck. What you offer will be the encouragement that is needed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- One of your biggest breaks will come from being in the right place at the right time in order to profit from some solid foundations laid by others. Its a momentary cycle, so make the most of it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Youll be amazed at how giving others the benefit of the doubt actually profits you. Its magic works in your favor with all your relationships and on all levels. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Take advantage of every opportunity you get that can put you on better terms with co-workers. Nows the time to amass a huge surplus of goodwill -- it will come in handy later. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Cupid is singling you out for special attention by making it possible for you to attract the regard of someone who may have never noticed you previously. Just be yourself and everything will fall into place. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- There is no one better than you at sorting out complicated developments. Now is the time to figure out you need to attract someone wholl be as focused as you are. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Because youll coat your requests in a hint of sugar, others will be more likely to do your bidding. However, youd better follow through or itll be the last time such favors are bestowed. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 2012 You could be extremely fortunate in the year ahead when teaming up with two people who have successful track records. Coupled with your talent and fresh outlook, it will make for a dynamic trio. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Even if the price is a bit more than you wanted to spend, nows the time to acquire that special item for which youve long been searching. It isnt likely youll find anything close to it again. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The types of activities that youre likely to find enjoyable are those you can share with good friends and/or family. It doesnt matter if its a game of cards or something physically exerting -- itll be to the good. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Being both methodical and purposeful will serve you well, making you far more adept at handling your career or domestic responsibilities. Spend your time accomplishing a difficult task and youll come out ahead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Its to your advantage to spend some time with friends who are more ambitious than frivolous. Even when they are at play, theyll be looking for good opportunities. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -One of your most valuable assets is the ability to turn meager beginnings into substantial products. You can easily take the crumbs that others leave behind and turn them into full, crusty loaves. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -The reason youre able to make an arduous task look so simple is your store of valuable past experience from which to draw. The more you learn, the easier life gets. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Dont deliberately put yourself in a position of having to take on a job youve never done before, but by the same token dont panic if you are forced into such a thing. Seek out an expert who can offer guidance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Your ability for figuring out the basic motivation of certain friends could be remarkably accurate and will serve you well. Keep what you learn to yourself, however. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Because of your impressive input, trends and conditions tend to favor you. Continue to devote significant effort toward the achievement of worthy objectives. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Conduct yourself with tolerance and consideration for the frailties of others, especially if youre in an authoritative position. Be both helpful and effective. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You could benefit in some manner from a source that you normally think of as being merely a backup. It will prove to be not only a substitute, but also a saving grace. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your friends and associates will know that you say what you mean and that you can be counted upon to come through for them, even if it ends up inconveniencing you in some manner.

You should have castigated the wife for her snooping. -- George Dear George: We arent big fans of snooping, but we do support gut instincts. First, the wife finds out that her husband used to meet a female co-worker for frequent lunches. Then he tells her hes thrown out the co-workers card when he has, in fact, hidden it and added a private phone number. He is not being truthful, and we cant blame her for acting on her suspicions.
