Love and resurrection: Gordon finds Museum launches new life in local faith community new web site
Upfront
The Museum of Postal History of Delphos has launched its new web site at postalhistorymuseum.org. Some of the areas are still under construction but visitors can start off with a video tour of the exhibits. Scroll down the page to find three important areas. First, several articles that have been published in the various publications of Curator’s Corner. The next section is about excursions with the details of the next scheduled escorted motorcoach trip to Nashville, Tenn., home of the Opry. The last section, which at the moment states Widget 3, will be an invitation to become a Friend of the Museum. Membership definitely has its privileges for individuals, families and corporations. There is more to see under “Current Posts.” Museum visiting hours are 1-3 p.m. on Thursdays or 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Group tours can also be scheduled. For more information, call Museum Director Guide Gary Levitt at 419-303-5482. BY MIKE FORD mford@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — With a Marine Corps background, the Rev. Jacob Gordon has a deep well to draw from as a Catholic priest. In times of crisis, he has more than theories to offer those in his care but he says his prior life experience is nothing compared to the love he has shared at the two parishes he will soon leave. Gordon, 37, has been the associate pastor at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Delphos and St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Landeck for the last three years. He is being reassigned and leaves the local parishes having been deeply impacted beyond what words can express. He said we know God, not as an idea of one’s imagination, but in the experience of loving others. The love he has shared with his parishioners has brought this theology to life. “When people come up to you in tears and tell you how much you mean to them and how much they’re going to miss you, you know they care about you and you care about them. I am going to cry, and have cried, when I leave. I’m going to miss the people here; the families in Delphos and Landeck are strong in their faith. When bad things happen, they show up for each other. When a crisis hits a family in either parish, people fill that house; it’s the kind of faith that brings me to tears,” Mike Ford photo he said. Gordon studied at three Catholic instituThe Rev. Jacob Gordon has ministered to local Catholics for the last three years and is being reassigned. His last tions in preparation for the priesthood but credits local families with teaching him things Sunday in Delphos and Landeck will be June 24.

Delphos, Ohio one doesn’t learn in a classroom. Gordon is a recovering-alcoholic; this is something he has been very open about. In his parishioners, he says he found acceptance. “The people have taught me a lot — the families, students and staff — in their love for God and each other,” he said. “I haven’t been perfect; we sometimes have this ideal that priests are supposed to be all things to all people. The people here in Delphos and Landeck understand that priests are human but they also know we’re redeemed. The families here practice their faith with a lot of compassion. They welcomed me; I came here at a tough time coming out of rehab and a lot of people didn’t write me off. They let me be part of their lives, so my years here will be something I always look back on as a resurrection experience.” The Diocese of Toledo limits associate pastors to three-year terms. With Gordon’s local stint at an end, he is being reassigned to St. Joseph and St. Ann Catholic churches in Fremont, where he will also pull chaplain duty at Bishop Hoffman Schools. In the summer, he will be at Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church in Put-in-Bay and St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church on Kelley’s Island. He is looking forward to the new chapter but turning the page is bitter-sweet. “A couple weeks ago, I was feeling really bummed about leaving, so I prayed about it and realized I just need to be grateful for the things the Lord has shown me here through others; to rejoice and thank God for the life others have communicated to me and I to them,” he concluded.

St. John’s report Powerful storms devastate parts of Western US By BEN NEARY blew out the windows in our meteorologist Richard cards ready
St. John’s High School report cards are ready. Students can pick them up from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1-3:30 p.m. in the high school office. Associated Press CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A rare, quarter-mile-wide tornado cut a swath across mainly open country in southeastern Wyoming, ripping off roofs and shingles, destroying outbuildings and derailing empty train cars. The twister, which carried winds of up to 135 mph, was part of a powerful storm system that rolled through parts of Colorado and Wyoming on Thursday, packing heavy rains, high winds and hail. The storms followed a round of nasty late spring weather that pummeled the region. The tornado passed through a sparsely populated area near Wheatland, a small city about 70 miles north of Cheyenne. It left eight structures heavily damaged and caused lesser damage three structures, said Kelly Ruiz of the state’s Office of Homeland Security. Some power lines also were downed. Only one person suffered minor injuries. Kim Eike said the tornado went right over her house, which was still standing, though battered. “We lost a camper, it house, blew off the shingles clear down to the plywood, but we didn’t lose the roof,” Eike, whose property is about 8 miles south of Wheatland, said Friday. Eike was watching the twister with co-workers at First State Bank in Wheatland when one pointed out it was near Eike’s house. She said the pig barn and door from the main barn also were lost. No one was home at the time, she said, noting that a couple in another house in the area rode out the storm in their basement. Don Farrier, a Wheatland restaurateur, said his house about 6.5 miles from Wheatland was damaged and will need a new roof. He said he lost some trees, and a shed on his property was knocked down. Farrier was at his restaurant when he saw the tornado and decided to drive toward his home. “I stopped and watched it for a while,” he said. “It sure wasn’t moving very fast, but you could tell it was a big tornado for this part of the country.” National Weather Service

Emanuel said the tornado was a quarter-mile wide and stayed on the ground for much of its 20-mile path from west of Wheatland to northeast of Chugwater. The area is about 60 miles north of Cheyenne. Hail the size of golf balls also was reported in the Wheatland area, and 2-inch hail was reported in Laramie, the National Weather Service said. The tornado knocked over five empty cars on a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train near parked Wheatland, railroad spokesman Gus Melonas said. Preliminary reports show Colorado was hit by 10 tornadoes during the past two days. The storms came at the peak time for such severe weather in the state. Severe thunderstorms normally become less common later in the month and in early July until summer monsoons start developing. At least seven homes were damaged in Elbert County on the plains southeast of Denver. County officials said two homes lost roofs and others had broken windows but the total damage was still being assessed.

Crops ahead of schedule
BY MIKE FORD mford@delphosherald.com

Unusually-warm temperatures throughout the spring of 2012 have played havoc on the nation’s crops. Not only is wheat ahead of schedule in Kansas, the same is true in Tri-county fields, according to Van Wert County OSU Extension Educator Dr. Curtis Young. “We’re accelerated in a lot of our development; wheat will be harvested in the next few weeks. We’ve already seen a change in color and we’ll harvest it early. Normally, we don’t harvest wheat until early or mid July but we’re looking at beginning harvest in mid to late June this year,” he said. Among the region’s dominant crops, beans are in worse shape right now than corn is. “Our soybeans are in the roughest condition of any of our crops. This is partly because they were planted after the corn was planted and by the time they were being planted, we were already beginning to dry out,” he said. “So, when we look at our soybean fields, some of them

aren’t coming up very evenly. There are areas where feed was planted in dry soil. So, it’s sitting there waiting for moisture to come along and help them germinate. They’re not growing very fast, so they’re still fairly small and like corn, are just waiting for rain.” Concerning corn, Young said area maize is doing just fine other than needing a shower. “Most of the corn was planted in a timely manner and is developing fairly well. It’s usually eye-high by the Fourth of July but will be beyond that. The unknown factor right now is how much rain we get between now and then. That will determine how high the corn grows. We’re a little short on water in the fields. We aren’t in a desperate situation yet but any rain we get will be more than welcomed,” he said. He also indicated the first round of hay taken off was bountiful but the subsequent lack of moisture limited growth. This, in turn, yielded a limited amount of hay for round two.

This past week, he had met a woman on the On the bus he takes to Owens Community College. enforcement She was surrounded by bookbags. He isn’t Other hand one to sit quietly and ride, so he struck up a yields conversation by saying, “Gees, I’d hate to see your book bill.” She turned to him and said, “No, these felony arrests aren’t my books. This is everything I own. I wasn’t much but he knew he would never be
live in the women’s shelter and if I leave this stuff there, someone will steal it.” Cameron has been through a lot and at the tender age of 26, he understands more than many will after a lifetime of experiences. He immediately said that if she was willing to share, he wanted to know how she ended up in the shelter. She had finally told her father she was a lesbian and she had been in the shelter with her bags of worldly goods ever since. She left for school before the shelter served breakfast and often returned after dinner was long gone. She sometimes didn’t eat for days. She went on to say that several months ago she had lost her student ID and could no longer ride the bus for free so she had walked from downtown Toledo to the campus with her possessions in tow. Someone had directed her to Catholic Charities, which funded her replacement ID so she could ride the bus. Cameron was impressed with her resolve and tenacity. She truly wanted to succeed and was doing it any way possible. Instead of going to class and worrying about what he needed or wanted, he immediately went to the student union and transferred money from his account to one in her name. It able to get her off his mind if he didn’t help in some way. He wanted to make a difference in her life, if just temporary, and the chance encounter definitely made a difference in his. This is a touching story even if it had ended there — but it didn’t. When Cameron got home that day, he wrote a letter explaining his bus companion’s situation and the next morning, he emailed it to a dozen college deans in Ohio and Michigan. In just a short couple of hours, he received hundreds of reply emails. Apparently the deans had read it and passed it on and all these people emailed Cameron wanting to know how he thought they could help students like this; students who are committed to bettering themselves enough to overcome obstacles that might seem insurmountable to many. Cameron made my pride-filled heart nearly burst from my chest. How awesome it is to have a child who cares so deeply for others; who wants to make a difference; who will not sit by and let something they feel is unjust or unfair go on. How good it makes me feel my kid is concerned about humankind — not his kind or your kind or my kind.

Van Wert — Through effective traffic enforcement the Ohio State Highway Patrol is significantly impacting the criminal element on our public roadways and in our communities. By troopers taking extra time during each traffic stop, and paying close attention to possible indicators of criminal activity, what on the surface seems to be a rather routine traffic stop – can turn into something much more significant. In 2011, the Patrol made 3,573 felony traffic stops. Of these stops, 74 percent involved a trooper “looking beyond the license plate” to detect criminal activity and making a felony arrest. The other 26 percent are attributed to a felony warrant apprehension. In addition, troopers made 6,137 drug arrests in 2011, of these arrests 2,885 were felony arrests – making up 47 percent of total felony arrests for the year. “Every day our troopers are out on the road- taking felons out of our communities,” said Lt. Ray Haas, Commander of the Van Wert Post. Through April of this year, troopers have made 1,407 felony stops. This is a 17 percent increase when compared to the first four months of 2011. Through April 2012, felony stops have occurred most frequently in Franklin County with 156 arrests, Lorain County with 59 arrests, Fairfield County with 51 arrests and Cuyahoga County with 50 arrests. Drivers are encouraged to call 677 to report impaired driving or drug activity.

STATE/LOCAL

On the banks of yesteryear ...
The city of Delphos is truly a “crossroads of history.” Not only do we have the Miami Erie Canal going north and south, we also have the Lincoln Highway going east and west. The Lincoln Highway later became US Route 30, the only federal route through Delphos. Route 66 through Delphos is NOT a federal route; it is a state route, not to be confused with the historic US 66 which runs from Chicago to Santa Monica. Recently a pair of brick pillars was built to accommodate two Lincoln Highway logo signs that were in our possession. According to Mike Buettner, President of the Ohio Lincoln Highway Association, the original terra cotta logo sign “...was salvaged from the original brick pillar in Oceola after it was destroyed by a wayward van in 1993. The sign somehow ended up at an antique sale in Lima, where an alert historian from Delphos — Father Christopher Vasko — purchased the sign for the museum. It was later used to cast similar signs for installation in new pillars...” at Beaverdam, Williamstown, and other locations known to have had pillars at one time to commemorate the completion of a brick paved section of the highway. Our second pillar contains one of these cement casts. Our brick pillar, shown here with Delphos Canal Commission president Ed Ulrich, and its twin were built by another of our trustees, Tom Miller, along with Roger Ruen. Kahle-Langhals of Kalida fur-

Evy has been digging for the roots of Pohlman, Hoersten, Grothaus, Elwer, Martin, Halker, Goedde, Luersman, Recker, Ruen and Schulte families — just to name a few. She has at least 10 three ring binder albums filled with documents, pictures and all kinds of information. Evy is the daughter of Art Hoersten and Thelma (Pohlman) Hoersten. The family lived on a farm west of Delphos. Evy married Jerry Martin and they have three children, Michelle Porr, Louise Crawford and Jeff Martin and five grandchildren. Evy was employed at Drapery Stitch in Delphos for several years. Evy now does most of her searching on the internet. She subscribes to Ancestry. com and finds it very helpful. Evy carefully documents all her information. Through the internet she met an Elwer cousin, Michael Brehmer. They have been working together on the Elwer family. The late Imogene Elwer, a well-known historian, did considerable research on the Elwers. She traveled to Fuchtorf, Germany, and visited with the Budda – Elwer family and had members of that family visit her at their home near Fort Jennings. Evy and Mike found a few minor variances between their discoveries and Imogene’s. They would like to share the Elwer story, as follows:

He allowed farm changed owners. When 13 hits during the game. Bill Briggs was on the mound for a person moved onto a farm, Miller’s. he would change his name to that of the farm, an important fact to remember when reading the history of our Elwer ancestors (really Schmedt, as you will see below). In 1758, Georgius Elver/Elwer, the “colon” (farm owner) and his wife, Elizabeth (Redecker) lived on the Elve-“hoff” (farm) in Fuchtorf, Germany, with their 5-year-old daughter, Anna Gertrudis. On 4 April 1758, another daughter, Anna Maria, was born, but the mother, Elizabeth, died a month later on the 5th of May. Tragically one month later on 7 June 1758, the father, Georgius, died leaving the two little girls orphans, both still very young and not able to take on the Elver farm. Living on the Elver-farm, but not related to them as far as can be determined, was the family of Joannes Wilhelm and AnnaMaria Elizabeth (Schlebbe) Schmedt. A young couple, with two children of their own, they agreed to raise the two Elver girls as their own. As recorded in the Harkotten II von Korff land records, the Schmedt’s took over the Elver cottage and farm on the 12th of June 1758.

Moderately confused

In an agreement, the Schmedt’s put all of their money into the cottage. Because of this, their two already born children, Johann Henrich and Anna Gertrud (after coming of age) would receive from Elver cottage 20 Reichthaler (about $35) and a cow for their dowry. Should one die this dowry would go back to Elvers cottage. The children yet to be born would have to be looked after accordingly. The Schlmedts would pay all the taxes on the Elwer cottage and farm over a number of years and by 1770, the tax books show that the cottage was fully paid. As described above, in the custom of the times, the name of the farm was retained and the Schmedts changed their name to Elver/Elwer. Of the two original orphaned Elver/ Elwer girls Anna Marie died in 1761, but the oldest, Anna Gertrudis, married Casper Nierkamp and their ancestral lines continue to this day in both the United States and Canada. Of the original Schmedt (now named Elwer) children, Johann Heinrich ElwerSchmedt, who was born 1 December 1754, married Maria Christina Laufmoelller on 21 Oct 1788 and they had 10 children. Their youngest, Friederich Wilhelm Elwer, was born on 26 May 1811. In 1837, Friederich Wilhelm left Fuchtorf and sailed to America. Friedrich Wilhelm, or William Frederich as he would be known, arrived in New Orleans. He stayed there for a while and then moved up the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers to Natchez, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; and Madison, Indiana; and then to Cincinnati, where a number of other emigrants from Fuchtorf had settled. In the Holy Trinity Church of Cincinnati on 30 October 1838, he married Christina Stratmann-Schwienheer who was also from Fuchtorf. Christina had emigrated with her younger brother, Casper, arriving in New York aboard the “Howard” on 15 October 1836. In a letter by Imogene Elwer, a granddaughter recounted that Christina “landed” at Fort Jennings and heard jobs were available in Cincinnati. So she and another girl walked from Fort Jennings to Cincinnati. Wilhelm/William and Christina lived in the neighborhood of the Holy Trinity

William & Christina Elwer Church in Cincinnati’s 5th Ward, where on 20 February 1840, their first child, Henry William, was born. A daughter, Catherine, followed soon after in 1841. In 1845, another daughter, Maria was born. A second son Bernard J. was born in 1848. Around this time the family moved to the west side of Cincinnati to Storrs Township, where tragedy struck. In six weeks time, more than 4,000 lives were lost in Cincinnati’s Cholera Epidemic of 1849. Two of those were Catherine and Maria Elwer, the daughters of William and Christina, who died on the same day 12 June 1849. It’s said Christina also had cholera, but she recovered to have another child, a son Joseph, born 19 April 1851. (Note: In both their obituaries in the Delphos “Kleeblatt”, it’s stated that Wilhelm and Christine had four of their six children die young. We have not found any record of the fourth child yet.) Again, in Imogene Elwer’s letter, it is written that according to a great grandson of the couple, William had worked at a couple of jobs in Cincinnati. He said that William’s last job was in a brick yard where he drove horses to turn a wheel which held bricks above a fire. There was an accident, and a co-worker was killed. The owner was much relieved when he learned it was only one of the workers killed and not one of his prized horses. Imogene noted that descendants all agree William “took up boating” as they called it. “My grandmother talked of their living on a canal boat. She related how she washed the clothes and hung them on the boat to dry”, quoted a granddaughter. On 22 August 1853, the middle son of William and Christina, Bernard J., age 5 died. Of the six children born to them, only the oldest, Henry William, and the youngest, Joseph, survive. After the death of Bernard, the Elwer family moved from Cincinnati to Delphos, perhaps to escape working in the factories and return to farming. They certainly wished to get away from the periodic cholera outbreaks in Cincinnati, which we know had claimed at least two of their young children and possibly the other two. There were already emigrants from

Fuchtorf living near Delphos such as Eickholt, Picker and Schwartzengraber, which influenced their decision to move. The Elwer’s settled on a plot of land south of Delphos and to the best of our knowledge, all persons named Elwer in the United States are descended from the two sons of William and Christina, Henry William Elwer and Joseph B. Elwer. (Note: Otto Hellman married an Elwer and lived on the old Elwer property on Route 66, just south of Delphos.) We have traced our direct ancestors, the Schmedts, back to 1625 with the birth of Jasper Schmedt in Fuchtorf, our 7th GreatGrandfather. Research indicates that the Elwer surname has disappeared in the Fuchtorf region. One of the descendants of Anna Gertrudis Elwer is Professor Heinrich Ostholt from Germany, whose genealogical research provided much of the ancestral data for this story and tracing Fuchtorf family ancestry back to the 1600s. Gabriele (Uphues) O’Sullivan from London, England, a cousin through the Schlebbe side of the Elwer-Schmedt family, provided the back story of the Elwers and the Schmedts and how the family came to be. We also acknowledge Bob Ebbeskotte for his contributions and genealogical research. Excerpts from a letter by the late Imogene Elwer were also included. Just recently, Evy received an e-mail from another cousin, Sister Maureen Wild, of British Columbia, Canada. Sister Maureen is coming to Cleveland for a retreat. During that time, she plans to visit Delphos and her many Elwer cousins. Sister Maureen said that Virgil and Rita Elwer and Virgil’s sister, Irma Grismore, visited them in Canada in the 1970s. Urb and Ruth Osting had also visited with John Henry Wild. Sister Maureen would like to visit with her Elwer relatives when she comes to town. She plans to arrive in Delphos on Thursday, June 21. Her visit will be brief, because she has to leave for Cleveland by 2 p.m. on the 22nd. Interested Elwer relatives can contact Evy at: martinevy@hotmail.com.

St. John’s hosts first-ever all-school Art Show

St. John’s Elementary School hosted its first annual all-school Art Show in May. Each student in grades 1-8 had artwork featured along with the high school art students. Proud parents, grandparents and siblings came to an open house to admire the artwork adorning the halls.

Ottoville Local School’s 7th annual Cancer Walk raised $7,921.51 and achieved the Relay for Life’s “Gold” award for the fourth year in a row. In the past seven years, the school community has raised over $35,000. The Cancer Walk is a project coordinated by the Ottoville FCCLA chapter. The support of the National Honor Society, Student Council and entire student body, faculty and staff is what contributes to the success of the project. This year’s check was presented by a group of students to Chris Hoeffel, representative of the American Cancer Society.

Cancer Walk raises nearly $8,000

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, JUNE 10, 2012 Your possibilities for greater material growth and accumulation look to be much stronger in the year ahead than they’ve ever been. However, it will be up to you to make the most of all the opportunities coming your way. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Because your image is a trifle fragile, be extra careful of how you conduct yourself in public. Even minor infractions that are usually forgiven won’t be tolerated. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- One of your more attractive assets is your insatiable curiosity about almost everything, which is fine and good. However, if you ask too many probing questions, it might rub others the wrong way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Immediately nip in the bud any misunderstanding that might arise between you and a close friend. Left unresolved, it could fester, get out of hand and leave a lasting scar. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If someone you think very highly of disappoints you, don’t let it affect the friendship. No one is perfect, not even you, so be sure to turn the other cheek. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- When you resent being made to undertake a certain task, the results aren’t likely to be up to your usual standards. If you’re smart, you’ll put your heart in your work and keep your temperament out of it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Unless you’re extremely mindful of your social graces, you could easily do something that would be tasteless or offensive to others. Don’t let yourself make any egregious blunders. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You might have to use plenty of tolerance when dealing with family members, especially your mate, but it’ll be worth it. Even if you have plenty of ammunition, don’t fire it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- That critical eye of yours could be urging you to make comments to others that you should keep to yourself. Even if you’re not obviously rude, don’t condemn others, even with faint praise. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Even though you could be rather lucky in many areas, your financial dealings aren’t likely to be among them. Be extremely careful in monetary transactions of all types. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Of course you have your rights, but so does everybody else. If you become too focused on your own affairs, it isn’t likely you’ll respect the interests of others. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Usually you are extremely practical and realistic about most things in life, but today you could find yourself getting emotional over the least little thing that doesn’t go your way. Get a grip. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It’s fun to meet like-minded new people, but guard against an inclination to give preferential treatment to a fresh pal over your old friends. You’d be inviting trouble. MONDAY, JUNE 11, 2012 Up to this point in time, you’re learned a lot from your past experiences, and it’s not very likely that you will be repeating any past mistakes. What awaits you in the coming months is hopeful and exciting. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A disappointing deadlock will result unless a middle ground can be found in an argument you’re having with your mate or someone close to you. Compromise is a must in this situation. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Even if you have to work a lot harder for what you want, know that your dedicated efforts won’t go unrewarded. It’ll all be worth it in the long run. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -There’s a chance you could display both brilliance and ineptitude when it comes to your financial or commercial affairs. Exactly which one will be the winner is a toss-up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Even if you have plenty of justification for being angry concerning a past or upcoming incident, remember that you’re bigger than anything that transpires. Forgive and forget. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Although you’re normally a good judge of people, be careful about putting your faith in the wrong folks. Refrain from discussing things that should be kept confidential. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You’re apt to be pretty good at achieving your objectives, yet you’re not likely to win any popularity contests from some of the tactics you’ll use in the process. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- There are times when we work very hard to get something we think we want, only to discover later that it wasn’t worth the effort. It may be one of those times for you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- In order to be a good salesperson, you’ll not only need a good product but an excellent presentation as well. Don’t put your prospects to sleep when hawking your wares. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Keep in mind how annoyed you can get when others disrupt your plans, so that you don’t do the same to co-workers by trying to rearrange events they have on their calendars. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- When it comes to an arrangement where a collective effort is required to carry things off, it might be left up to you to instill the spirit of togetherness in those involved. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Although you think you’re trying very hard to make progress, unless you truly concentrate on doing so, you’ll merely be kidding yourself. Focus, focus, focus. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Be patient regarding techniques for achieving steady progress. If you aren’t, you’ll start to make changes for change’s sake and cause yourself all kinds of trouble.

UN team sees massacre site in Syrian village
By ZEINA KARAM and DIAA HADID Associated Press BEIRUT — U.N. observers could smell the stench of burned corpses Friday and saw body parts scattered around a Syrian farming hamlet that was the site of a massacre this week in which nearly 80 men, women and children were reported slain. The scene held evidence of a “horrific crime,” a U.N. spokeswoman said. The observers were finally able to get inside the deserted village of Mazraat al-Qubair after being blocked by government troops and residents, and coming under small arms fire Thursday, a day after the slayings were first reported. In central Damascus, rebels brazenly battled government security forces in the heart of the capital Friday for the first time, witnesses said, and explosions echoed for hours. Government artillery repeatedly pounded the central city of Homs and troops tried to storm it from three sides. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met with international envoy Kofi Annan in Washington to discuss how to salvage his faltering plan to end 15 months of bloodshed in Syria. Western nations blame President Bashar Assad for the violent crackdown on anti-government protests that grew out of the Arab Spring. The U.N. team was the first independent group to arrive in Mazraat al-Qubair, a village of about 160 people in central Hama province. Opposition activists and Syrian government officials blamed each other for the killings and differed about the number of dead. Activists said that up to 78 people, including women and children, were shot, hacked and burned to death, saying pro-government militiamen known as “shabiha” were responsible. A government statement on the state-run news agency SANA said “an armed terrorist group” killed nine women and children before Hama authorities were called and killed the attackers. Sausan Ghosheh, spokeswoman for the U.N. observers, said residents’ accounts of the mass killing were “conflicting,” and that they needed to cross check the names of the missing and dead with those supplied by nearby villagers. Mazraat al-Qubair itself was “empty of the local inhabitants,” she said. “You can smell the burnt smell of the dead bodies,” Ghosheh said. “You could also see body parts in and around the village.” The U.N. supervision mission released a statement later Friday saying that armored vehicle tracks were visible in the area and some homes had been damaged by rockets and grenades. Inside some of the houses, blood was visible across the walls and the floors, the statement said. Ghosheh said she saw two homes damaged by shells and bullets. She spoke of burned bodies found in a house, but did not elaborate and was not clear whether the U.N. team saw them. She told the BBC: “We can say that there was definitely a horrific crime that was committed. The scale is still not clear to me.” By DAVID B. CARUSO Associated Press A BBC correspondent traveling with the U.N. observers described the hamlet as an “appalling scene” of burnedout houses and gore. “There are pieces of human flesh lying around the room, there is a big pile of congealed blood in the corner, there’s a tablecloth that still has the pieces of someone’s brain attached to the side of it,” said the correspondent, Paul Danahar. “They killed the people, they killed the livestock, they left nothing in the village alive,” he added. The U.N. observers also visited a cemetery where some of the dead were buried, according to an activist in Mazraat al-Qubair. Activists said the Sunni hamlet is surrounded by Alawite villages. Alawites are an offshoot of Shiite Islam

Aide could face charge in Edwards sex tape case US wants 9/11 health program to include 50 cancers
By MICHAEL BIESECKER Associated Press RALEIGH, N.C. — A prosecutor will decide whether an ex-aide to John Edwards will face contempt charges related to a court fight over a video purported to show the ex-presidential candidate having sex with his then-mistress. North Carolina Superior Court Judge Michael R. Morgan appointed the prosecutor Friday to consider criminal charges against Andrew Young, his wife and two of their lawyers. A judge previously found probable cause for contempt charges arising from a lawsuit filed against the Youngs by Rielle Hunter, who was Edwards’ mistress as he sought the White House in 2008. The state court ordered sensitive documents in the lawsuit to be kept under seal, including a lengthy deposition given by Edwards. Young and his lawyers have acknowledged providing those documents to federal prosecutors investigating Edwards prior to his 2011 indictment, but said they did so only after receiving a subpoena signed by a federal judge. Attorneys for the Youngs said they were asked by prosecutors to keep the subpoena a secret from Hunter and her lawyers. Young was the government’s star witness at Edwards’ campaign corruption trial, spending more than a week on the witness stand. Edwards was acquitted on one count and the jury deadlocked on five others. An aide once so loyal he falsely claimed paternity of Edwards’ baby with Hunter and helped hide her from the media for nearly a year, Young turned against his former boss and testified for the prosecution under an immunity agreement. The U.S. Justice Department has not yet decided whether to retry Edwards on the unresolved counts, but any such effort would likely be hamstrung if Young is charged with felony contempt charges. The civil case between Hunter and the Youngs was settled earlier this year with a state court order that required copies of the sex tape to be destroyed, though federal prosecutors may still have a copy. But a hearing on the contempt of court issue was delayed until after Edwards’ federal trial. Morgan’s order appoints District Attorney Jim Woodall to review the case. Woodall is the lead prosecutor for a twocounty district that includes Chapel Hill, where both the Youngs and Edwards live. Woodall said he expects to make his decision within 60 days. “I’ve not reviewed anything in the file at this point, because it wasn’t my business until I was appointed,” Woodall said. “Obviously I won’t make any decision until I review the case and all the issues involved.” Hunter’s lawyer, Wade Barber, declined to comment, saying his client was no longer a party in the case. Raleigh lawyer Philip R. Isley represents Andrew Young, his wife Cheri and their lawyers Robert Elliot and David Pishko, all of whom face potential criminal charges. Isley declined to comment Friday on the issues in the case, but said his clients hope for a speedy decision. “This is sort of the last chapter in this whole affair, and we’d like that chapter to be closed,” Isley said. NEW YORK — People who were stricken with cancer after being exposed to the toxic ash that exploded over Manhattan when the World Trade Center collapsed would qualify for free treatment of the disease and potentially hefty compensation payments under a rule proposed Friday by federal health officials. After months of study, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health said in an administrative filing that it favored a major expansion of an existing $4.3 billion 9/11 health program to include people with 50 types of cancer, covering 14 broad categories of the disease. People with any of the cancers on the list could qualify for treatments and payments as long as they and their doctors make a plausible case that the disease was connected to the caustic dust. The decision followed years of emotional lobbying by construction workers, firefighters, police officers, office cleaners, and many other people who fell ill in the decade after the terror attack, and were sure it had something to do with the many days they spent toiling in the gray soot. “It’s amazing,” said Ernie Vallebuona, a former New York City police detective who retired after being diagnosed with lymphoma in 2004. “It’s nice to have the federal government recognize that your cancer was caused by ground zero. It’s something we’ve always known. I’m just ecstatic that we are finally being recognized. You almost felt like you were being brushed aside.”

and Assad is a member of the sect, while the opposition is dominated by Sunnis. The United States condemned Assad over the killings, saying he has “doubled down on his brutality and duplicity.” The violence followed another mass killing last month in a string of villages known as Houla, where 100 people including many women and children were also shot and stabbed to death. The opposition and the regime blamed each other for the Houla massacre. In April, the U.N. said more than 9,000 people have been killed since the crisis began in March 2011, but it has been unable to update its estimate since and the daily bloodshed has continued in past weeks. Activists put the number of dead at about 13,000.

NIOSH, which oversees the 9/11 health program, acted after an advisory committee made up of doctors, union officials and community advocates recommended that cancer be added. Previously, the aid effort has only covered people with mostly less-serious ailments, including asthma, acid reflux disease and chronic sinus irritation. The decision on whether to add cancer to that list is a difficult one, and there are still substantial questions about how the program will function.
