Fire and Rescue preparing for convention
Staff reports
DELPHOS — Final prep-
arations are being made for
Delphos Fire and Rescue to
host the annual Northwest
Ohio Volunteer Firefighter’s
Assoc. Convention Friday
and Saturday.
Fire departments have
already started arriving for
two days of camaraderie and
celebration.
For the local department,
it’s a chance to show off
their town and raise much-
needed funds for equip-
ment.
“We’ll have hundreds of
firefighters here and they’ll
all need food and drink,”
chairman Jamey Wisher
said. “We have a big-ticket
drawing to raise money for
the Delphos Fire Association
that will be spent on equip-
ment.”
As departments arrive,
those which will spend the
entire time in Delphos will
set up camp at the new
Fireman’s Clubhouse in
Leisure Park.
Friday’s events include
waterball at 4 p.m. and the
Queen’s Pageant at 5 p.m.
Following the pageant,
contestants will participate
in a short parade and then
the cruising begins. Fire
trucks loaded with person-
nel will cruise the route
of North Canal, Main and
Washington streets from
Fifth to Fourth streets and
Fifth and First streets from
Canal to Washington.
Safety Service Director
Greg Berquist said it’s an
honor for Delphos to host
the event.
“This brings a lot of atten-
tion to the City of Delphos
and anytime we get positive
advertising, it’s good for
the community,” he said.
“We look forward to hav-
ing a nice celebration in
which firefighters can bond
with each other and hold
activities that display their
firefighting abilities to the
community.”
Berquist reminds resi-
dents to be careful and
remember fire trucks have
blind spots like commercial
semi-trucks have.
“Like any other time there
is large equipment mov-
ing around, motorists and
pedestrians should realize
those big pieces of equip-
ment have many blind spots
and they don’t stop quickly.
So, please give them lots of
space,” he said.
Saturday morning will
bring the annual NOVFA
meeting at St. John’s All-
Saints Building, where
next year’s host will be
announced. According
to sources, Ottoville and
Put-in-Bay are on the list.
NOVFA officers will also
be elected.
Following a NOVFA
Past President’s Luncheon
at the All-Saints Building,
the parade begins at 1:30
p.m., with all participat-
ing fire departments and a
dozen local and area march-
ing bands participating. The
parade route is: State Street
south to Second Street;
Second Street to Main Street
headed north; Main Street
north to Tenth Street; and
ends at Stadium Park.
Street closures and park-
ing restrictions for Friday
and Saturday include:
— There will be no park-
ing on either side of Main
Street between Second
and Fifth streets from
Friday afternoon to 5 p.m.
Saturday;
— No parking on either
side of Second Street
between State and Main
streets and no parking on
either side of Main Street
between Fifth and Tenth
streets from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday for the parade;
— There will be no
travel on Third and Fourth
streets between State and
Maple streets from 11 a.m.
to 4 p.m. on Saturday due
to marching bands lining up
for the parade; and
— No parking on the
north side of First Street
from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
Saturday due to rerouted
traffic from SR 697.
Also, Delphos Fire and
Rescue vehicles will use
blue lights on trucks and
squads during the conven-
tion when making emergen-
cy runs.

be blocked off similar to

Library watching floor for mold
BY STACY TAFF
staff@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — The
Delphos Public Library
Board of Trustees met in
regular session Wednesday
to discuss advancing issues
with the floor settling in the
meeting room of the main
library building. As the stone
settles, it is feared moisture
could seep in and cause mold
growth.
Luke Cross of Cross
Excavating presented the
results of his appraisal.
“We would have to jack-
hammer it all out to see how
far back the stone has settled
in there. It could be 10 feet
or it could be 30 feet,” he
said. “The foundation itself
should be good; it should be
just the floor. Maybe they got
in a hurry when they laid the
stone. The outside structure
of the building should be fine
but you just have to watch out
for mold. If enough mold gets
in there, it could cost twice as
much to fix. For right now, I
can’t really give an estimate
on how much it would cost
until we get in there and look
more closely.”
A motion was made to
wait until August to perform
the repairs and Cross will
provide periodical checks on
the mold situation and how
fast the floor settles in the
meantime.
In other news, the library
received two donations over
the last month: $300 from the
Green Thumb Garden Club,
to go towards landscaping for
The First Edition; and $500
from the Eagles Auxiliary,
with no specified purpose.
Library Director Nancy
Mericle shared updates on the
status of the library’s future
membership with the SEO
Consortium, a move which
will exponentially increase
the amount of material
available to Delphos Public
Library patrons.

U.S. flag 235
Today is the 235th birthday
of the U.S. flag.
In 1777, the Continental
Congress adopted the Stars
and Stripes pattern for our
national flag. It wasn’t until
1916 that President Woodrow
Wilson honored the flag with a
proclamation that gave honor
to the flag. Then in 1949,
President Harry S. Truman
signed an Act of Congress
setting aside June 14 of each
year as Flag Day.

Times Bulletin editor
VAN WERT — A Delphos
man was sentenced to 11
months in prison on a drug
trafficking charge. Steven
Diltz, 29, will serve the pris-
on time concurrently with
an 11-month prison sentence
handed down in a Putnam
County court.
Diltz was sentenced
Wednesday morning in
Van Wert County Court of
Common Pleas. He had plead-
ed guilty to fifth-degree felo-
ny trafficking in drugs. Diltz
was given credit for 67 days
already served on this charge.
Stating, “I was raised in
an Amish home. This isn’t
me,” Brenda Schwartz
expressed her plea for mercy
to Judge Charles D. Steele on
Wednesday. The 26-year-old
Decatur, Indiana woman was
sentenced on three counts of
theft from an elderly person,
each a felony of the fifth
degree. Schwartz’s attorney,
Todd Wolfrum, explained that
a man had coerced Schwartz
into using the credit card of
the woman she was caring for
to make purchases for him.
Schwartz was placed on
60 days of electronically-
monitored house arrest as a
part of three years of com-
munity control. Also as part
of the sentence, she must pay
$1,517.38 in restitution and
have no contact with her, per-
form 200 hours of community
service, and pay court costs
and fees. A nine-month prison
sentence was deferred pending
the successful completion of
community control.
Ruth A. Napier, 20, Van
Wert was placed on two years
of community control on a
fourth-degree felony charge
of trespassing in a habitation.
As part of community con-
trol, Napier must complete
a substance abuse treatment
program, continue psychiatric
treatment and medications,
serve 30 days in jail, and
pay fees and court costs. A
nine-month prison term was
deferred pending the success-
ful completion of community
control.
Tyler A. Dirham, 20,
Van Wert, entered a plea of
guilty to a charge of posses-
sion of marijuana, a felony of
the fifth degree. Dirham then
requested treatment in lieu
of conviction. He had been
arrested for having marijuana
on March 24. Steele granted
the request and gave Dirham
one year to complete the
program. Dirham was sched-
uled to leave for an inpatient
rehabilitation in Battle Creek
Wednesday afternoon.
Emily Lacy, 20, Van
Wert, pleaded guilty to traf-
ficking in morphine, a fourth-
degree felony, and trafficking
in marijuana, a fifth-degree
felony. She will be sentenced
on July 25.
Michael Speakman, 20,
Van Wert, entered a guilty
plea to fifth-degree felony
theft. He was ordered to have
no contact with the victim in
the case. Sentencing was set
for July 25.
Rickey E. Harter, 55,
Spencerville was arraigned
and entered a plea of not
guilty to theft from a elderly
person, a felony of the fifth
degree charge. Harter was
released on bond and was
ordered to attend a pretrial
hearing on June 27.
Hamilton Martinez, 51,
Phillipsburg, pleaded not
guilty to fifth-degree felony
theft and fourth-degree felony
theft from an elderly person.
Martinez was released on
bond. A pretrial hearing was
set for June 27.
Nathan Huey Dingle, 30,
Chicago, Ill., entered a not
guilty plea to receiving stolen
property, a felony of the fourth
degree. Steele transferred the
bond which was posted previ-
ously in Van Wert Municipal
Court was transferred to this
case. A pretrial hearing was
set for June 27.
Steven Diltz, 29, Delphos was sentenced to 11 months
in prison on Wednesday in Van Wert County Court of
Common Pleas. Diltz pleaded guilty to fifth-degree felony
trafficking in drugs. (Times Bulletin/Ed Gebert photo)

into it now and they only do
one library a month. There
are a few libraries ahead of
us and the next opening is
November. They may not do
one for December because of
the holiday season, so we told
them we’d be willing to go the
first of the year,” Mericle said.
“The lady I spoke with said
there was another library right
behind us, so if we wanted
to go with a later time, they
might bring that library in
before us. So we’ll see what
happens, but it’s happening.
It’s in the works.”
The board passed a motion
for the library staff to pur-
chase a Kindle Fire and a
Nook for the staff to learn on,
as eBooks will soon be avail-
able. With this decision and
the upcoming SEO member-
ship, hiring a collection agen-
cy for lost materials was once
again brought to the table.
“We talked awhile back
about possibly hiring a col-
lection agency. Since then,
I’ve gone on the OPLIN
list and asked libraries in
Northwestern Ohio to respond
if they use a collection agen-
cy. They’re all with Unique
Management and they love
it,” she said. “There was one
library who was with Atlas
Collections, Inc. in Muncie,
Ind., but about 90 percent of
them were with Unique, even
the smaller libraries. One of
our big concerns was that as
a smaller library we wouldn’t
be able to justify hiring them,
because you need to have at
least five cases a month or
you pay a $50 monthly fee.
These smaller libraries use
Unique and they think the
world of it. This is something
we might want to consider
once we’ve joined the SEO
Consortium.”
The board agreed to shelve
the topic for later consideration.
The board went into exec-
utive session and adjourned
with no further business con-
ducted.

One Year Ago
• A sizeable crowd gathered at Stadium Park in Delphos
near the Hanser Pavilion for the opening concert in the
Delphos Rotary Club’s Music in the Park series. The Cake
Walkin’ Jazz Band performed. Concerts are held the first and
third Sundays June through August with food and beverages
available.
25 Years Ago — 1987
• Christie Halker, a sophomore at Columbus Grove High
School, was crowned Miss June Jubilee last Friday
night. The pageant was part of the June Jubilee celebration.
Halker, entering the contest as Miss New York, won in three
categories: physical fitness, most original costume and most
talented.
• The top three money-raisers in the recent Fort Jennings
St. Jude bike-a-thon were, first place, Angie Sukup,
daughter of Frank and Denise Sukup; second place, Zack
Liebrecht, son of Tom and Pat Liebrecht; and third place,
Shannon Gerdeman, daughter of Mike and Sandy Gerdeman.
• American Legion Commemorative Post 268 installed
officers at its June 11 meeting. New officers are G. Thomas
(Tom) Granger, commander; Phil Martin, first vice com-
mander; Frank Rigdon, second vice commander; Dennis
Kimmet, finance officer; Ray Gremling, chaplain, and Don
Ream, sergeant-at-arms.
50 Years Ago —1962
• Authorities worked on the assumption that three bank
robbers who disappeared from Alcatraz have become the first
known to escape from the island “rock” in its 28-year history
as home of the nation’s most dangerous convicts. There was
still no indication whether the three men were alive or per-
ished in the treacherous waters that surround the federal prison
in San Francisco Bay.
• Attorney John A. Shenk will open new offices Friday on
the second floor of the Peoples National Bank building in
Delphos. For the past 10 months, after the fire that swept
the bank building last August, the attorney’s office has been
located at 111 ½ E. Second St. John Shenk’s grandfather,
Judge John F. Lindemann, had established the law firm in
1914.
• An all-county meeting of the Allen County Garden clubs
was held Wednesday night at Bluffton College, in Mossiman
Hall. Attending from Delphos Green Thumb Garden Club
were Mrs. Ralph Best, Mrs. William Wiesenberg, Mrs. Benno
Miller, Mrs. Henry Fettig, Mrs. Richard Shirack and Mrs. E.
L. Staup.
75 Years Ago — 1937
• A tentative arrangement has been made for the leasing of
the Lincoln School for the coming school year to St. John’s
parish to be used for grade classes of St. John’s School. The
Lincoln School was to be discontinued for the coming school
year so far as the public schools are concerned. A tentative
arrangement was made by which St. John’s would be permit-
ted to make use of the building for temporary relief from an
overcrowded condition at that school.
• Final plans have been completed for the attendance of the
Delphos Volunteer Fire Department at the annual convention
of the Northwestern Ohio Volunteer Firemen’s Association
which will be held at Defiance on Wednesday. Sixteen
members of the department headed by Fire Chief Nicholas
Hummer will attend.
• Plans for the annual Methodist Lawn Festival to be
held June 24-26 on the church lawn have been completed.
The executive committee in charge of the festival this year
is Charles Cordermann, Blaine Metcalfe, Harry Bellis, Paul
Staup and Virgil Buchanan.
WASHINGTON (AP) —
A growing chorus of once-
confident Democrats now say
President Barack Obama could
lose the November election.
The hand-wringing reflects
real worries among Democrats
about Obama’s ability to
beat Republican rival Mitt
Romney, who has proven to
be a stronger candidate than
many expected. But it’s also a
political strategy aimed at ral-
lying major donors who may
have become complacent.
Interviews with a dozen
Democratic strategists and
fundraisers across the coun-
try show an increased sense
of urgency among Obama
backers. It follows a difficult
two weeks for the president,
including a dismal report on
the nation’s unemployment
picture, a Democratic defeat
in the Wisconsin governor
recall election and an impres-
sive fundraising month for
Romney and Republicans.
“We’ve all got to get in the
same boat and start paddling
in the same direction, or we’re
going to have some prob-
lems,” said Debbie Dingell,
a Democratic National
Committee member and the
wife of Michigan Rep. John
Dingell.
“We can’t take this for
granted,” said Peter Burling,
a DNC member from New
Hampshire. “I intend to be
running scared from now until
November.”
These worries have also
prompted some second-guess-
ing of an Obama campaign
operation once perceived as
run by disciplined message
specialists. Democratic poll-
ster Stan Greenberg and former
Clinton adviser James Carville
this week wrote that Obama’s
efforts to convince voters that
economic conditions are mov-
ing in the right direction aren’t
swaying people.
“We will face an impossi-
ble head wind in November if
we do not move to a new nar-
rative,” the strategists wrote.
Former Democratic Party
chairman Don Fowler faulted
the Obama camp for not laying
more blame on Republicans
for the slow economic recov-
ery.
“The Obama campaign
should make it clear whose
fundamental fault the econom-
ic problems are, and they’ve
chosen not to do that,” he said,
echoing an argument made by
other Democrats. “Not doing
that, they forfeit an argument,
a strategy, a technique toward
making the Republicans bear
responsibility for these prob-
lems.”
Some Democrats hope the
deepening concern among
some party faithful could lead
to an increase in fundraising.
The mighty Obama and
DNC fundraising opera-
tion fell behind Romney and
Republicans in May, with the
GOP team raising $76 mil-
lion compared to the $60
million haul for the president
and Democrats. And the pro-
Obama super PAC Priorities
USA Action has lagged far
behind Republican-leaning
outside groups, in part
because of what senior strat-
egist Bill Burton said was a
sense of complacency among
Democratic donors.
“Democrats have to know
that the president is up against
a well-financed opponent in a
tough political environment,”
said Burton, a former White
House aide. “If everyone
doesn’t join the fight, he could
be defeated.”

STEVE PEOPLES

WASHINGTON —
Sharpening the choice for
the nation, President Barack
Obama and Republican
presidential challenger Mitt
Romney are offering duel-
ing visions of how to fix
the economy, framing in their
most direct terms the fierce
debate that will decide the
November election. In a flash
of campaign drama, the two
are giving major speeches at
nearly the same time today
from the same state, battle-
ground Ohio.
For the president, today’s
speech will aim to get above
the daily ups and downs —
more downs of late — and
pull the American people into
the discussion Obama wants:
a choice between his econom-
ic ideas and Romney’s. As he
has done before at pivotal
moments in his presidency,
Obama will use a big speech
to try to reframe the debate as
he heads into the heart of the
campaign calendar.
For Romney, the occasion
is about offering definition to
a divided public about how
he would lead the economy,
including the priorities for his
first 100 days in office. The
former Massachusetts gover-
nor who made a fortune in
business is sensing momen-
tum on his side, particular-
ly as the weak pace of job
growth undermines Obama’s
stick-with-me message.
The split-screen econom-
ic addresses offer the air of
a bigger moment in a gen-
eral election campaign that
has been defined mainly by
ads, fundraisers and monthly
jobs reports. Yet for all the
emerging hype, particularly
surrounding the speech of the
sitting president, previews
from both sides point toward
plenty of familiar themes and
few, if any, new ideas.
Obama is not expected
to announce any major eco-
nomic policies. His aides say
his pending jobs ideas before
Congress remain valid and he
will keep pushing them.
The two men will essen-
tially be posting up on each
other from 250 miles apart,
with Obama at a commu-
nity college in Cleveland and
Romney at a manufacturing
company in Cincinnati. In
choosing Ohio, they are tar-
geting the state that strate-
gists in both parties consider
perhaps the most contested
and vital of the election.
Obama will probably
pound on the second-term
economic vision he began
laying out months ago. He
will lay out a jobs plan of
spending tax money on edu-
cation, energy, science and
innovation and transportation;
cutting the debt by reduc-
ing spending elsewhere and
raising taxes on the wealthy;
and taking on the nation’s
loophole-loaded tax code to
make it fairer.
Romney will talk about
cutting regulation and spend-
ing, overhauling the tax
system, doing away with
Obama’s health care overhaul
and supporting a major oil
pipeline known as Keystone
XL. Setting his own expecta-
tions for Obama, Romney told
donors in Cincinnati: “He’ll
speak with great rhetoric and
eloquence. But actions and
records speak a heck of a lot
louder than words.”
Without doubt, Romney
and Obama have starkly dif-
ferent visions of econom-
ic rebirth, the issue of top
concern for voters. To hear
them tell it, Obama thinks
Romney’s jobs philosophy is
a failed notion of just cut-
ting taxes and gutting regula-
tion, while Romney says the
president is a big-government
defender who is stifling the
free market at the cost of eco-
nomic acceleration.
Of the two, Obama is car-
rying more of a political bur-
den because, as the guy in
charge, he is saddled with a
lumbering economic recov-
ery. Romney can largely
blame the incumbent — just
as Obama, as a candidate,
benefited from blaming
President George W. Bush.
Obama has sought to
erode that argument and dent
Romney’s business creden-
tials by saying his only idea
is faulting Obama.

WASHINGTON — The
Obama administration’s
increasing use of unmanned
drone strikes to kill terror
suspects is widely opposed
around the world, according
to a Pew Research Center
survey on the U.S. image
abroad.
In 17 out of 21 countries
surveyed, more than half of
the people disapproved of
U.S. drone attacks targeting
extremist leaders and groups
in nations such as Pakistan,
Yemen and Somalia, Pew
said Wednesday.
But in the United States,
a majority, or 62 percent,
approved the drone campaign,
making American public
opinion the clear exception.
“There remains a wide-
spread perception that the
U.S. acts unilaterally and
does not consider the interests
of other countries,” the study
authors said, especially in pre-
dominantly Muslim nations,
where American anti-terror-
ism efforts are “still widely
unpopular.”
The White House declined
to comment on the report. The
Obama administration con-
siders drone strikes one of its
most effective tools to com-
bat al-Qaida — preferable to
conventional war because
the strikes produce fewer
American casualties and are
intended to be more palatable
abroad because the use of
drones keeps U.S. troops on
the ground to a minimum.
“In order to prevent ter-
rorist attacks on the United
States and to save American
lives, the United States gov-
ernment conducts targeted
strikes against specific al-
Qaida terrorists, sometimes
using remotely piloted air-
craft, often referred to pub-
licly as drones,” White House
counterterrorism chief John
Brennan said in April in a
detailed and wide-ranging
defense of the policy. He said
targets are chosen by weigh-
ing whether there is a way
to capture the person against
how much of a threat the per-
son presents to Americans.
The global drone cam-
paign under President Barack
Obama has killed a number of
high-value leaders, arguably
more than any other method
including more than a decade
of special operations raids
inside Afghanistan. A strike
in Pakistan this month killed
al-Qaida’s most recent sec-
ond in command, Abu Yahya
al-Libi.
As conventional U.S.
forces draw down from their
missions overseas and drone
strikes ramp up, the ire direct-
ed at invading armies is being
transferred to the unmanned
aerial devices.
“We continue to see the
public thinking Obama has
not fulfilled his promise
that he would seek interna-
tional approval for military
force, and that’s related to
displeasure with the drone
strikes,” Pew Research Center
President Andrew Kohut said
Tuesday in advance of the
release of the survey, titled
“Global Opinion of Obama
Slips, International Policies
Faulted.”
This is the first year Pew
has included a question about
the use of drones in its survey
on the Obama administration,
Kohut said. “It’s now a global
issue,” he said.
The polls were nationally
representative surveys con-
ducted by telephone or in-per-
son interviews in 21 countries
in March and April.
In Pakistan, CIA drone
strikes targeted terrorist
suspects for years, with the
Pakistani government pub-
licly condemning them but
privately continuing to work
with U.S. intelligence on joint
counterterrorist operations.
That changed after the U.S.
Navy SEAL raid that killed
Osama bin Laden inside
Pakistan last year — carried
out without Pakistani permis-
sion or knowledge. Pakistan
considered that a violation of
sovereignty and has demanded
the U.S. either end the drone
program or give Pakistan con-
trol of the aircraft, something
U.S. officials say they will
not do.

Associated Press
WASHINGTON —
Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton welcomed
progress in U.S. efforts to
invest in India’s civilian
nuclear power industry but
said more action is needed to
translate improving ties into
economic benefits.
The two governments
held their annual strategic
dialogue in Washington on
Wednesday, seeking to boost
relations that have blossomed
in recent years but have yet to
meet U.S. hopes for greater
market access for American
companies.
“It’s not enough just to
talk about cooperation on
issues ranging from civil
nuclear energy, attracting
U.S. investment to India or
defending human rights or
promoting women’s empow-
erment,” Clinton said, along-
side India’s foreign minister,
S.M. Krishna.
“We have to follow
through so that our people,
citizens of two, great plu-
ralistic democracies, can see
and feel the benefits,” she
said.
Krishna said India plans
to invest $1 trillion in infra-
structure development over
the coming five years, offer-
ing enormous business oppor-
tunities for U.S. companies.
He offered assurances to pro-
spective investors that there
will be “a level playing field
and total transparency.”
Two years ago, President
Barack Obama declared that
the U.S.-India relationship
would be a defining part-
nership of the 21st century.
Security cooperation and
defense sales have grown rap-
idly, and Washington looks
to New Delhi as a partner in
the economic development of
Afghanistan. But some ana-
lysts say the relationship is
being oversold.
Clinton said two-way trade
and investment has grown 40
percent since 2009 and is set
to exceed $100 billion this
year, but there is “a lot of
room for further growth.” The
two sides agreed Wednesday
to expedite negotiations on a
bilateral investment treaty to
reduce barriers.
Clinton welcomed the sign-
ing, announced Wednesday,
of an agreement between
Westinghouse Electric Co.
and the Nuclear Power
Company of India Ltd. allow-
ing preliminary site develop-
ment for future construction
of nuclear power plants in
western India.
Clinton said it was a
significant step toward the
fulfillment of a 2008 India-
U.S. civil nuclear agreement.
That landmark pact, nego-
tiating by the administra-
tion of President George W.
Bush, allowed India access
to technology from interna-
tional suppliers it had been
denied since it conducted its
first nuclear test explosion
in 1974.
Krishna said it should “put
at rest” confusion surround-
ing the agreement.
“I’m glad that nuclear
commerce is now beginning
to expand itself,” he said at
a news conference, express-
ing hopes that more Indian
and U.S. companies would
become involved in the
months ahead.
Clinton said she looked
forward to additional deals
with other American com-
panies, including General
Electric. But she said there
was still a lot of work to be
done to address the implica-
tions of Indian nuclear liabil-
ity legislation that effectively
has blocked U.S. suppliers
from capitalizing on the
agreement.

DELPHOS — For the sec-
ond game in a row, Jefferson’s
ACME team received great
pitching in grabbing a
4-2 victory over Van
Wert Wednesday eve-
ning at Wildcat Field
in Delphos.
Winning right-hand-
er Drew Kortokrax tossed four
frames of no-hit ball, fanning
seven and walking three in
73 pitches (42 strikes). Tyler
Rice tossed three innings of
3-hit, 2-run (1 earned) relief,
fanning two and walk-
ing one.
For the Cougars,
Nathan Stoller gave
up five hits and four
runs (3 earned) in four
frames (68 pitches, 42 strikes),
ceding two free passes and
fanning five. Drew Strawser
mopped up with two innings
(1 walk).
Kortokrax worked out of
a first-inning jam. He walked
Tyler Williams but catcher
Zach Kimmett caught him
stealing. Stoller walked and got
to third on a wild pitch and a
passed ball. However, the next
two batters struck out.
The Wildcats (4-2) got a
1-out blooper to left center by
Tyler Wrasman, a 1-out stolen
base and a 2-out misplayed
ball hit by Kimmett but left
runners on the corners.
Mason Krugh walked to
commence the Van Wert sec-
ond and swiped second but
Kortokrax struck out the side.
That started a string of nine
straight retired by the senior-
Wildcat-to-be.
Jefferson got a 1-out free
pass to Wrasman and a sto-
len base but he could get no
farther.
The Wildcats got all four
runs in the fourth. Kimmett
singled up the gut that hit
off the second-base bag.
Rice singled to right, send-
ing Kimmett to third; an error
on the play allowed Kimmett
to score and put Rice at sec-
ond. Jordan McCann slashed
a single to left to put run-
ners on the corners. After
McCann stole second, Zavier
Buzard bounced an infield
hit to first, scoring Rice;
when the defense hesitated,
McCann hustled home to the
plate and scored, with Buzard
going to second. Bounceuts
to first (Ryan Bullinger) and
the pitcher (Gaige Townsend)
plated Buzard for a 4-0 edge.
Wrasman walked, took second
on a wild toss and swiped
third but remained there.
Van Wert struck for a
run with two down in the
fifth against Rice. Pinch-
hitter Cody Keirns got the
team’s first hit — a single into
right — followed by hits from
Ryan Stoller and an RBI knock
to left by Tyler Williams. An
error on a ball hit by Nathan
Stoller loaded the bases but
a bounceout to third by
Kevin Agler kept the
damage at 4-1.
The Red and White
had one more chance to
add a run in the sixth.
With two outs, pinch-hitter
Curt Wollenhaupt walked and
advanced on a wild pitch but
pinch-hitter Tyler Talboom
lined out.
The Cougars got within
4-2 in the top of the seventh.
With one gone, Keirns walked
and advanced on a 2-out
wild pitch. An error allowed
Keirns to head to third and he
scored on a throwing error on
Williams’ grounder. However,
Nathan Stoller was retired to
end the contest.

MIDDLE POINT - The
ACME baseball teams from
Crestview and Lincolnview
got together for a cross-county
matchup at Lincolnview High
School Wednesday eve-
ning and despite a fairly
closely-played game
through the first six
innings, Crestview ral-
lied for five runs in the
top of the seventh to secure an
11-5 victory.
After a scoreless first
inning, Crestview drew first
blood in the top of the sec-
ond. Rightfielder Jordan
Roop singled and moved to
second when leftfielder Alec
Heffner grounded into a field-
er’s choice. Roop later came
around to score on a passed
ball to give the Knights a 1-0
lead.
The Crestview offense
went back to work in the top of
the fourth. Heffner led things
off with a 1-out triple and
came in to score on an RBI
single off the bat of pitcher
Nick Thomas. Third base-
man Cam Etzler then walked
before a 2-run triple by sec-
ond baseman Richardson
scored Thomas and Etzler.
Shortstop Isaiah Simerman
then followed with the third
Knight triple of the inning -
all over the head of Lancer
rightfielder Derek Friesner -
to score Richardson.
The rally accounted
for four Crestview
runs to give the
Knights a 5-0
lead heading into
the bottom of the
fourth.
The Lincolnview bats
finally struck in the home
half of the fourth inning. First
baseman Matt Oechsle sin-
gled and catcher Tyler Lovett
followed with a double to put
runners at second on third
with no outs. Leftfielder Eli
Farmer then singled Oechsle
home before Friesner came
through with a sacrifice fly
to deep center field to score
Lovett and bring the Lancers
within three, 5-2.
Crestview brought a run
across in the top of the sixth
when first baseman Jake
Harmon notched another tri-
ple. He came in to score on an
RBI single from Etzler to give
the Knights a 6-2 advantage.
The Lancers answered in
a big way in the home half of
the inning — with three runs.
Oechsle led things off with
a single before Farmer and
Friesner walked to load the
bases with one out. Thomas
picked up a big strikeout but
couldn’t end the inning before
Lincolnview second
baseman Troy Patterson
came up with a 2-run
single. Pinch-hitter Wyatt
Schmersal then plated
Friesner with an RBI sin-
gle to cut the Lancer deficit to
one heading into the seventh.
The Knights got a gift to
open the last frame when a
Lancer error allowed center-
fielder Damian Helm to reach
base. Another Lincolnview
error on an overthrow at
second base after a Nathan
Owens bunt put runners on
first and second with none
out for the Knights. Roop
then dropped a bunt down the
third-base line for an infield
single to load the bases with
no outs.
Crestview hit paydirt
on the ensuing at-bat when
Heffner came through with
a 2-run single. Harmon fol-
lowed with a 2-run double to
score Roop and Heffer and put
the Knights up five. Thomas
brought the final Crestview
run across with his second
RBI single to put the Knights
up 11-5.
Etzler, who entered on the
mound in the sixth, recorded
a perfect inning in the bottom
of the frame to secure the
Crestview win.
Heffner led the Knights at
the plate. He went 2-4 with
a triple, two runs scored and
two RBIs. Harmon was also
2-4, with a triple and dou-
ble, two RBIs and two runs
scored.
Oechsle had a pair of
singles and runs scored for
the Lancers,and Patterson
brought in a pair of runs.
Thomas took the win on
the mound. He went 5 2/3
innings, allowing five earned
runs. Kyle Williams took the
loss for Lincolnview. He went
six innings, allowing eight
runs - five earned.

LeBron can’t win, can he?
It amazes me
how many people
still despise LeBron
James — can I write
loathe? — for his
“Decision” of two
summers ago.
Listen, I criti-
cized him like
everybody for the
way he handled that. It was boorish and very uncool.
He admitted it over and over in the last two years since
that he could have — should have — handled it better and
would do so the next time (if there was one).
I am satisfied that he is truly sorry and has done a lot to
try and make up for it.
He has elevated his game this season — he carried the
Heat past the Celtics in the last round — and yet all people
want to talk about is that hideous decision.
Every time the Heat lose in these here playoffs, he gets far
too much of the blame.
How about pointing the blame elsewhere — like Dwayne
Wade? He already HAS an NBA title; he is a superstar in his
own right.
Yet far too often, he has played below par this post-
season.
If he is hurt, that’s part of the game. By this time of
year, especially in this shortened and compressed campaign,
everyone is beat up. You are being paid gazillions of dollars
to play a game.
They are finding this out the hard way: James and Wade
can’t carry this team all the way to the title; they need help.
Look how they struggled without Bosh.
Now they are facing a younger version of themselves that
is even more athletic, longer, deeper, seemingly hungrier and
ever more versatile.
Am I giving the title to the Thunder already? Perish the
thought.
I am just writing that the other guys the Heat picked up:
Mike Miller comes to mind; have to pick up their part of the
bargain.
I actually wouldn’t mind if the Heat win the title. I know
all the “greatest team money can buy” jazz but if they win it,
it will be due to the unsung heroes — Mario Chambers, for
example — that will come through in the clutch.
If the Heat do win, next will be the “one is not enough”
routine and we will start this all over.
We shall see if other NBA stars will learn their lesson
from the “Decision.”
I imagine the indignation of it all if Dwight Howard
decides to either bolt the Orlando Magic or force a trade next
year as his contract runs out. After all, he is in the prime of
his career and would definitely swing the balance of power
wherever he goes.
He has already not handled it well — look at the evidence
compiled so far this past year and how he already got a coach
fired; Stan Van Gundy can be a prickly sort of guy but he
didn’t deserve to be fired! — and he still will be playing for
Orlando next season — at least for a part before they likely

COLUMBUS GROVE —
The high school track and
field season ended last
week but the Columbus
Grove Bulldogs were
still running in their
ACME contest against
the Leipsic Vikings
Wednesday evening.
The Bulldogs stole five
bases in the contest and
drove in six runs in the sec-
ond inning on their way to a
10-0 run-rule victory.
Josh Verhoff retired 12 of
the first 13 batters he faced
for the Bulldogs.
Trey Roney went 2-for-
3, including a bases-loaded,
bases-clearing double in the
second as Grove sent 10 bat-
ters to the plate. Brandon
Benroth had a 2-for-2 night,
scoring twice and driving in
a pair of runs.
Grove got the scoring
started in the second when
Mason Smith led off with a
single and scored three bat-
ters later on a Blake
Hoffman single.
Benroth followed by
being hit with a pitch,
loading the bases for
Roney, who delivered
a rocket off the right-field
wall, driving in three runs
and making it a 5-0 contest.
The hosts added one more on
a Verhoff single. After the
leadoff hitter in the inning
came up to the plate for a
second time in the frame
grounded out to short, the
Bulldogs had a 6-0 lead.
Grove struck again in the
fifth, adding two more runs,
sending nine batters to the
plate. Riley Brubaker led off
with a walk, followed by
a Zach Schafer single. Two
batters later, Benroth doubled
home Brubaker and Schafer
to make it a 9-0 contest.
Grove loaded the bases
and threatened to end the
game in the fifth but Leipsic
relief pitcher Derek Steffan
got Smith to pop out to short
to end the threat.
Brady Schafer came on in
relief to pitch for Columbus
Grove and disposed of the
Vikings in order in the top of
the sixth.
In the bottom of the frame,
the Bulldogs put the game to
an end. David Bogart began
the inning by being hit by
a pitch and stole second.
Hoffman reached on an error
when Logan Selhorst threw
wildly to first on a ground
ball; the ball went down the
right-field line, allowing
the aformentioned Bogart
to score and completing the
run-rule victory.
The Bulldogs improve
to 7-1 with the win, while
Leipsic falls to 4-2.

The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO —
The plan is for Tiger Woods,
Phil Mickelson and Bubba
Watson to pack a powerful
punch in one group. Luke
Donald, Rory McIlroy and
Lee Westwood are supposed
to counter in another.
Forget any agenda at the
U.S. Open this week.
Despite the USGA’s
attempt to inject some drama
by grouping golf’s greatest
together for the opening two
rounds beginning today, the
championship never goes
according to the script when
it’s at The Olympic Club.
“Certain guys,” Woods
said, “do really well in certain
events.”
At Olympic Club, it hasn’t
been the stars.
At least not in the end.
The 156-man field features
the 14-time grand slam win-
ner, a record-setting cham-
pion and more green jackets
than anybody could ever fit
in those wooden lockers in
the clubhouse. There’s also
a guy who drives a cart, a
14-year-old from China and a
42-year-old teaching pro from
Ohio who got into this major
on his 12th attempt with a
putt that hung on the lip —
until it didn’t.
History suggests some-
where between those groups
is the next U.S. Open cham-
pion.
The four players who fin-
ished second — Ben Hogan,
Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson
and Payne Stewart — in
the previous U.S. Opens at
Olympic Club won a com-
bined 27 majors. The four
winners — Jack Fleck, Billy
Casper, Scott Simpson and
Lee Janzen — won a total of
seven.
“It’s such a wonderful test
of golf,” Mickelson said, “and
has had so many great things
happen over the years here.”
Golf is almost impossible
to predict under the best of
circumstances.
The U.S. Open is even
harder.
And when the tournament
comes to Olympic Club?
Well, about the only thing
more difficult to forecast is
the famous fog that can swal-
low San Francisco and the
unleveled Lake Course — as
it did during the final practice
round Wednesday morning
— across the street from the
Pacific Ocean.
Perhaps the only safe bet
is the course will be no push-
over.
McIlroy shattered U.S.
Open records last year at
rain-softened Congressional
when he reached double fig-
ures under par before he even
turned in his second-round
scorecard. He finished at 268
to break the 72-hole mark by
four shots; his 16-under par
was four better than Woods at
Pebble Beach in 2000.
Runner-up Jason Day of
Australia shot 8 under —
good enough to win 46 of the
previous 50 U.S. Opens and
force a playoff in three oth-
ers — and 20 players finished
under par. In the previous
six national championships, a
total of seven players finished
under par.
Payback could be on the
horizon this week.
In decades past, the usual
reaction has been to over-
compensate after so many red
numbers ended up on the lea-
derboard. The best example
might’ve come when Johnny
Miller shot 63 on a rain-soft-
ened Oakmont course in the
1973 U.S. Open. The USGA
got even a year later in the
“Massacre at Winged Foot,”
won by Hale Irwin at 7-over
par.
USGA executive direc-
tor Mike Davis has practi-
cally guaranteed to restore
“golf’s toughest test” this
year, although more from
the expected dry weather
in Northern California than
anything else, creating firm
and fast greens already hard
enough to reach with the nar-
row, tree-lined fairways that
twist and turn in every direc-
tion.
“We want this event to be
a real challenge,” Davis said.

Japanese composting may be new food waste solution
By JAY LINDSAY
The Associated Press
MIDDLETON, Mass. —
Down the back stairs of the
clubhouse kitchen, on a plot
lost among the expanse of
tightly trimmed fairways and
greens, weeks-old food is bur-
ied under a tarp and mulch and
left to decompose.
But this private country
club in Massachusetts isn’t
taking an unsanitary short-
cut with its trash. It’s trying
bokashi, an obscure compost-
ing method it says will help it
recycle 4 tons of food waste
each year.
Bokashi is based on an
ancient Japanese practice that
ferments food waste by cover-
ing it with a mix of microor-
ganisms that suppress its smell
and eventually produce soil.
Bokashi is not widely used in
the United States, but its prac-
titioners think it should be.
At Ferncroft Country Club,
owner Affinity Management
decided to start bokashi last
month after trying it success-
fully at a public golf course it
operates in Maryland.
Advocates say the key
advantage of bokashi, if done
correctly, is that the microor-
ganisms involved don’t pro-
duce foul odors as they break
down the food. So people
can toss in meat, and even
small amounts of dairy and
oils, unlike in other compost-
ing methods. That eliminates
much of the waste sorting that
can make composting imprac-
tical for a larger food estab-
lishment. And the treated food
won’t turn stomachs or attract
pests.
At Ferncroft, a mild smell
is apparent only within inches
of the food, which is first fer-
mented in a sealed container.
There’s no smell near the pile
where the food is later buried,
and it appears untouched by
varmints as it breaks down
into soil.
“I’ll be honest with you.
I thought by now we were
going to see a hole, a nibble
or something. It’s nothing,”
said executive chef Stephane
Baloy, who runs Ferncroft’s
program.
Though little-known,
bokashi has appeared in
recent decades in pockets
around the country, from
Arizona to Brooklyn. But the
Environmental Protection
Agency doesn’t list it as a
composting method and has
no information on it, accord-
ing to a spokeswoman.
At the U.S. Composting
Council, Leanne Spaulding
said there’s almost no cred-
ible research on the practice.
She said there are questions
about whether there’s enough
space in crowded urban set-
tings for the soil that would
be produced by widespread
bokashi use. And she said
some see bokashi as a “gim-
mick” because the commercial
product that’s widely used by
practitioners today is made up
of microorganisms that occur
naturally everywhere.
Bokashi traces back centu-
ries to Japanese farmers who
covered food scraps in their
rich, regional soil, which con-
tained microorganisms that
would ferment the food. After
a few weeks, they’d bury the
waste. Two or three weeks
later, it was soil.
Today, bokashi practi-
tioners often get the need-
ed microorganisms from
a product first sold in the
early 1980s called Effective
Microorganisms (EM1),
which is distributed by a
Texas-based company called
TeraGanix. The product is no
gimmick, said executive vice
president Eric Lancaster, but
rather a way to help bokashi
practitioners avoid a stinking
mess by assuring them they’re
getting the right mix of micro-
organisms every time.
The EM1 is mixed with
some kind of carbon it can
stick to, such as bran or saw-
dust, as well as molasses or
another sugar the microorgan-
isms can feed on. Practitioners
then layer the concoction on
newly disposed food and seal
it in an airtight bucket. Weeks
later, it’s taken out of the
bucket and buried.
There’s little smell with
properly done bokashi because
the microorganisms that break
down the food produce amino
acids and small amounts of
alcohol. Those don’t stink
like the ammonia and hydro-
gen sulfide produced by other
microorganisms when food is
left to rot, said Joshua Cheng,
an associate professor of earth
and environmental sciences at
Brooklyn College.
Cheng is doing research on
bokashi, some of it funded by
TeraGanix, to better under-
stand the chemistry behind
how the food breaks down,
the quality of the soil pro-
duced and to document the
claims about a lack of odor.
He’s also trying to make sure
there are no pathogens pro-
duced — a concern in any
composting process.
“There are not supposed to
be, but we need to make sure
that there is not,” Cheng said.
Bokashi advocates believe
the practice will see wider
adoption if people can get
word about it, just because
the amount of food wasted
in the U.S. is so staggering.
According to the EPA, the
U.S. generated more than 34
million tons of food waste
in 2010, accounting for 14
percent of all the solid waste
that reached landfills or incin-
erators.
Vandra Thorburn, who
runs a business in which she
provides and collects bokashi
buckets from about 50 cus-
tomers around Brooklyn, said
she’s making it her personal
mission to get bokashi listed
by the EPA. Contrary to con-
cerns that cities don’t have
space for bokashi, she said the
unobtrusive method produces
soil that could fill community
gardens or revitalize worn or
contaminated soils around the
city.
At Ferncroft last week,
Baloy surveyed his new herb
and seasonings garden, which
he’ll fill with the soil produced
by bokashi. He said he’s liked
what he’s seen from the pro-
cess. But it’s early.
“It’s still pretty new,”
Baloy said. “We’re seeing
how it goes.”

Jackie Mitchell, a 17-year-old female pitcher for the
Chattanooga Lookouts, struck out both Babe Ruth and Lou
Gehrig in an exhibition match against the New York Yankees.
(Continued from Page 6)
trade him. Chances are, they
aren’t going to be seriously
contending for a title any-
time soon, especially with
Superman coming off back
surgery.
You don’t hear about this
anymore.
I don’t imagine as much
brouhaha will occur if, say,
Kevin Garnett decides to leave
the Celtics this off-season (or
more than likely Danny Ainge
lets him walk) or if Kobe
Bryant decided to force a trade
from the Los Angeles Lakers in
the next season or two because
he doesn’t want to play for a
rebuilding team that can no
longer contend for a title in the
next three seasons.
I figure that with the
“miles” on his body, that is
really what he has left to be
a serious force in the NBA.
After all, this next season with
be his 17th and the beating his
body has taken over the years
is legendary!
Kevin probably has less.
Kobe didn’t particularly
handle matters well when
he tried to force LA’s hand
several seasons ago — the
same old “build a better team
around me or trade me” fiasco
— and he took a beating for
it.
If he did it now, you’re
talking about a player much
closer to the end of his career
than the beginning and I think
many fans would give him a
pass — wanting to play for
another title or two, not wor-
rying about his place in the
game any more, not caring
about another scoring title,
blah blah.
Here’s the thing: he already
has a budding superstar in
Andrew Bynum. He has
already spoken about how he
likes the attitude the 7-footer
brings to the table.
Well, then, Mr. Bryant,
why don’t you feed the guy?
Pull a Magic Johnson and
make sure your “Kareem
Abdul-Jabbar” gets plenty of
touches — meaning shots —
in the post.
That will make your job so
much easier; unless you want
to continue to take 30 shots
a game and not get past the
second round!

MLB SCORES/SCHEDULES
(Continued from Page 7)
“When you read about it, it
goes back even into the 1800s
when this event was played. So
I think that one of the things
we want to set this event apart
is really challenging the play-
ers in all respects.”
Grinding out 72 holes at
Olympic Club has never been
easy.
Fleck did it in 1955, beat-
ing the great Hogan and over-
coming a crowd clearly in The
Hawk’s corner. Casper over-
came Palmer’s 7-shot lead
with nine holes to go in 1966,
Simpson topped Watson to win
his only major championship in
1987 and Janzen won at even-
par 280 in 1998 over Stewart.
How the latest edition at
this majestic course ends is
uncertain.
At the very least, it starts
with a bang.
Woods and Mickelson
will play with Masters cham-
pion Watson for the first two
rounds, teeing off on the par-4
ninth at 7:33 a.m. PDT. It will
be the first time Woods and
Mickelson have been paired
in the championship since
Torrey Pines in 2008, when
the USGA grouped players off
the world ranking.
That was also the last time
Woods won a major.
Donald, McIlroy and
Westwood highlight a group
of the world’s three top-ranked
players. Casey Martin and his
cart are also in the field, so
is 14-year-old Andy Zhang
— believed to be the young-
est qualifier ever — and Ohio
club pro Dennis Miller, who’s
still basking in the instant fame
from the video that went viral
of his 20-foot birdie putt to
qualify out of a playoff.

One way to save money is by using
less of a product. It’s easy to use less
without compromising quality and
results. Some examples include using
less sugar, dish soap, shampoo, paper
towels or meat. The first reader tip
shares her strategy to use less fabric
softener, but it can be applied to other
products, too:
Extend the life of an old sweatshirt:
The cuffs of my sweatshirt were really
starting to come apart at the ends.
Rather than sew the edges together,
trim them back or glue them, I got
some thin seam binding and sewed it
to the ragged edges. Looks pretty good,
and I can wear my old sweatshirt for
a little longer. The repair didn’t cost
much, and it didn’t take much time,
either. -- Chris D., email
Seed starting: I have an all-fridge
and an upright freezer standing beside
each other. They each have a faint
warm spot on top that generates a very
gentle heat, perfect for starting seeds.
I do this every year, just until they
germinate. -- Andrea, Canada
Popcorn cauliflower (salty and/
or sweet versions): This tasty treat
is perfect for snacking. Just like
popcorn, you can experiment with
different spices and flavors. Do not
microwave to reheat. Leftovers from
the savory version can be blended into
soups, but sweet versions should be
eaten immediately.
Savory Popcorn Cauliflower
(Basic)
1/2 to 1 full head fresh cauliflower
(approx. 1 pound)
2 teaspoons to 2 tablespoons oil
Salt, to taste
Seasonings, optional
Pinch of sweetener (Truvia or
Splenda, e.g.), optional
Cut the cauliflower into bite-size
pieces. Put pieces in a large plastic
storage bag or a large mixing bowl.
Drizzle oil over the cauliflower, then
sprinkle with seasonings and a little
salt. Close bag and shake until florets
are coated as evenly as possible, or
toss well in a bowl. I usually put in
2 teaspoons of olive oil, shake, then
spray with olive oil in a spray bottle
to use much less oil than called for.
Spread in a single layer on a baking
sheet. Bake at 400 F for 50-60 minutes,
turning them over every 15 minutes.
You want them to get very dark
brown for the best flavor, and turning
them is important because the bottoms
will get too browned otherwise. Makes
about 4 servings. Do not freeze.
Twists:
Caramel Kettle “Korn”: Add 2
teaspoons to 1 tablespoon caramel
syrup when coating the cauliflower
with oil. You can also drizzle on after
cooking instead of the sweetener.
Salt and Vinegar: Add 1 tablespoon
vinegar and a couple of pinches of
sea salt when coating the cauliflower.
However, if you really want the
“popcorn” crisp, add the vinegar to a
sprayer and wait until it’s cooked to
spray and then sprinkle with sea salt.
Spicy Curry: Add 1 to 2 teaspoons
curry and/or chili powder when adding
seasoning.
Cajun: Add 1-2 teaspoon Cajun
seasoning.
Thyme and Garlic Delight: Add
Thyme, black pepper, fresh garlic and
lemon juice. -- Diana, Iowa

Tomorrow’s
Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Annie, why
is my mom
anxious?
Dear Annie: I’m 16 years
old and deeply worried about
my mother. I believe she has
an undiagnosed anxiety dis-
order that’s getting worse.
She constantly stresses about
every little thing. I can’t
remember the last time I saw
her totally relaxed.
Mom once had a panic
attack so severe that she
strained several muscles,
causing intense
pain for weeks. She
knows that her anx-
iety is unhealthy.
Several years ago,
she mentioned it
to her doctor, but
was told that she
did not require any
treatment. Mom is
stubborn, so despite
the fact that she is
getting worse, she
will not ask for help
again.
Annie, is there anything
I can do? I hate seeing my
mom in pain. -- Michigan
Dear Michigan: Is your
dad in the picture? What
about grandparents, aunts or
uncles? You shouldn’t have
to shoulder this on your own.
Please talk to your mother
and let her know how worried
you are. It would help to have
another trusted adult speak
to her, as well. Encourage
her to contact the Anxiety
and Depression Association
of America at adaa.org for
information. In the mean-
time, see if you can get her
to participate in some simple
exercise program with you --
perhaps a walk after dinner or
a weekend bike ride. Exercise
can help relieve some symp-
toms of anxiety.
Dear Annie: I’m get-
ting married in two months.
Yesterday, I received an invi-
tation to my cousin’s bridal
shower, which made me real-
ize that none of my brides-
maids has bothered to ask if I
would like one.
My maid of honor lives 16
hours away and is planning
my bachelorette party. She
can only make the trip for
the weekend of the wedding.
However, I have three other
bridesmaids who live nearby.
For one of them, I was the
maid of honor and planned a
shower. I am now left to pur-
chase my own honeymoon
lingerie and feel I am missing
out on another celebration of
this big step in my life.
I know it is rude to ask
for a shower, and bringing up
my disappointment will just
cause unneeded drama. What
can I do? -- Disappointed in
Mexico, Mo.
Dear Missouri: The point
of a shower is to help a bride
furnish her new home, and
with so many couples liv-
ing together before marriage,
the events have become
more inventive, but less nec-
essary. As the bride, it is
OK to ask your bridesmaids
whether there will be a linge-
rie shower, so you can plan
accordingly, but you may not
demand that they have one.
Dear Annie: “Concerned
Parents” are worried that their
42-year-old divorced daugh-
ter got back together with her
violent boyfriend. He threw
bricks through her window
and punched her in
the eye because he
found out she got
drunk and slept with
another man. The
boyfriend has now
joined AA and is
getting anger man-
agement counsel-
ing.
I agree with your
response. But why
didn’t you also sug-
gest that the daugh-
ter join AA for get-
ting drunk and jumping in the
sack with another man? How
understanding do you think
men are? I would advise men
to stay away from this drunk-
en nymphomaniac. -- O.B.
Dear O.B.: “Drunken
nymphomaniac” is a bit of
an overstatement. For all
we know, this is the first
and only time she has done
such a thing, and while she
is clearly in the wrong for
cheating, it does not justify
her boyfriend’s violent reac-
tion. However, if the parents
notice that this is a pattern for
their daughter, you are abso-
lutely right that she should
seek help.
Dear Readers: Today is
Flag Day and the 33rd Annual
Pause for the Pledge of
Allegiance at 7 p.m. (Eastern
time). For more information,

dation.org.

FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 2012
It would be to your advantage in
the year ahead to establish as many
new social relationships with business
contacts as you can. Not only will you
have much in common to enjoy in one
another, you could do each other some
good.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) --
Your instincts for spotting conditions
that could produce gains for you are
sharper than usual. You might not
make a killing, but the more you find,
the more it’ll add up.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) --
Having marvelous leadership qualities
allows you to quickly instill optimism
and enthusiasm in others. You
shouldn’t have any trouble getting
everybody working for a common
cause.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) --
Although you might be the major topic
of discussion among your friends,
there’s no reason to be disturbed. If
you could hear what they’re saying,
you’d be flattered.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) --
One secret to success is to give others
what you desire, which would be a
good course for you today. You’ve
heard it before: If you want friends,
be friendly. If you need help, strive to
aid others.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
Something unusual might transpire
that will be of enormous importance
to you but not necessarily to anybody
else -- but don’t let that stop you.
You’ll recognize it for its worth.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- Bonds can be strengthened if you
allow your companions the same
freedom of expression that you expect
from them. This simple rule has
multiple benefits.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) -- Some of the time you spend
with friends should be devoted to them
instead of to you and your interests. If
you make your friends feel important,
they’ll repay you in kind.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- In order to do something
successfully, you must first convince
yourself that you’re capable of it.
Your limitations will only be as strong
as you allow them to be.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- A pending project can easily be
concluded to your satisfaction if and
when you develop a plan to do so.
For positive results, utilize all of your
bright ideas.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If
you want to go out on the town with
friends tonight, don’t wait until the
last minute. Contact your pals as early
as possible to make the arrangements,
before they have a chance to make
other plans.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) --
Don’t grab the first item you see when
shopping without first comparing
prices and quality. Those small
differences between one item and
another could quickly add up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
-- You’re endowed with a winning
combination of sound ideas and
plenty of energy, but things won’t
just happen to you by chance. Have a
game plan in hand.

10,000 germ
species live in and
on healthy people
By LAURAN NEERGAARD
AP Medical Writer
WASHINGTON — They
live on your skin, up your nose,
in your gut — enough bacteria,
fungi and other microbes that
collected together could weigh,
amazingly, a few pounds.
Now scientists have mapped
just which critters normally live
in or on us and where, calculat-
ing that healthy people can share
their bodies with more than
10,000 species of microbes.
Don’t say “eeew” just yet.
Many of these organisms work
to keep humans healthy, and
results reported Wednesday
from the government’s Human
Microbiome Project define
what’s normal in this mysteri-
ous netherworld.
One surprise: It turns out
that nearly everybody harbors
low levels of some harmful
types of bacteria, pathogens that
are known for causing specific
infections. But when a person
is healthy — like the 242 U.S.
adults who volunteered to be
tested for the project — those
bugs simply quietly coexist with
benign or helpful microbes, per-
haps kept in check by them.
The next step is to explore
what doctors really want to
know: Why do the bad bugs
harm some people and not oth-
ers? What changes a person’s
microbial zoo that puts them at
risk for diseases ranging from
infections to irritable bowel
syndrome to psoriasis?
Already the findings are
reshaping scientists’ views of
how people stay healthy, or
not.
“This is a whole new way
of looking at human biology
and human disease, and it’s
awe-inspiring,” said Dr. Phillip
Tarr of Washington University
at St. Louis, one of the lead
researchers in the $173 million
project, funded by the National
Institutes of Health.
“These bacteria are not pas-
sengers,” Tarr stressed. “They
are metabolically active. As a
community, we now have to
reckon with them like we have
to reckon with the ecosystem in
a forest or a body of water.”
And like environmental
ecosystems, your microbial
makeup varies widely by body
part. Your skin could be like a
rainforest, your intestines teem-
ing with different species like
an ocean.
Scientists have long known
that the human body coex-
ists with trillions of individu-
al germs, what they call the
microbiome. Until now, they’ve
mostly studied those that
cause disease: You may recall
health officials saying about a
third of the population carries
Staphylococcus aureus harm-
lessly in their noses or on their
skin but can infect others.
But no one knew all the types
of microbes that live in healthy
people or where, and what they
do. Some 200 scientists from
nearly 80 research institutions
worked together for five years
on this first-ever census to begin
answering those questions by
unraveling the DNA of these
microbes, with some of the
same methods used to decode
human genetics. The results
were published Wednesday in a
series of reports in the journals
Nature and the Public Library
of Science.
First, the researchers had to
collect tissue samples from more
than a dozen body sites — the
mouth, nose, different spots of
skin, the vagina in women, and
from feces. Then they teased
apart the bacterial DNA from
the human DNA, and started
analyzing organisms with some
daunting names: Lactobacillus
crispatus, Streptococcus mitis,
Corynebacterium accolens.
Our bodies are thought to
be home to about 10 bacterial
cells for every human cell, but
they’re so small that togeth-
er microbes make up about 1
percent to 3 percent of some-
one’s body mass, explained Dr.
Eric Green, director of NIH’s
National Human Genome
Research Institute. That means
a 200-pound person could har-
bor as much as 6 pounds of
bacteria.
There are about 22,000
human genes. But the microbes
add to our bodies the power of
many, many more — about 8
million genes, the new project
estimated.
Those bacterial genes pro-
duce substances that perform
specific jobs, some of which
play critical roles in the health
and development of their
human hosts, said Dr. Bruce
Birren of the Broad Institute
of MIT and Harvard, another
of the project’s investigators.
Genes from gut bacteria, for
example, lead to digestion of
certain proteins and fats. They
also produce certain beneficial
compounds, like inflammation-
fighting chemicals.
Another surprise: There isn’t
one core set of bacteria that per-
form those functions. A wide
variety can do the same jobs,
the researchers found.
That’s fortunate considering
people carry a customized set
of microbes, one that varies dra-
matically depending on where
you live, your diet and a host
of other factors. Your microbial
zoos also can change, such as
when taking antibiotics that kill
infection-causing germs as well
as good intestinal bacteria that
may be replaced with different
but equally effective bugs.
“We don’t all have the same
bacteria although they all seem
to have been organized to do
the same things,” Birren said.
It may be that our lifestyle and
environment “induces each of
us to have arrived at a solution
that works for us.”
With this first snapshot of
what normal looks like, studies
now are under way to see how
the microbes differ in people
with certain diseases, in hopes
of learning how to prevent or
treat the illnesses.
Consider the intestinal
superbug named C. difficile
that people all too often catch
while they’re in the hospi-
tal, and that sometimes kills.
Washington University’s Tarr
wants to know what mixture
of gut bacteria can fend off the
diarrhea-causing germ or make
it more likely to infect — so that
doctors might one day know
who’s more vulnerable before
they enter a hospital.
Also, researchers at Baylor
College of Medicine reported
Wednesday that the kind of bac-
teria living in the vagina chang-
es during pregnancy, perhaps
to give the fetus as healthy a
passage as possible. Previous
research has found differences
in what first bacteria babies
absorb depending on whether
they’re born vaginally or by
C-section, a possible explana-
tion for why cesareans raise the
risk for certain infections.
