SOPA finds success in raising funds Wayne Allen PDT Staff Writer

Officials with the Southern Ohio Port Authority (SOPA) have found success raising the necessary funds to hire a director and fund economic development activities. “We are taking this as a sign the local business community is

behind economic development and likes the idea of having a single point (person) for the county, headed by a professional,” said C.B. Herrmann, SOPA spokesman. When asked about the response SOPA has received, Herrmann said, “At this point it seems we are limited by the

number of calls we can make. We’ve gone to the local governments for support. The village of New Boston, city of Portsmouth and Scioto County are seeing the advantage of working together. Individually nobody can afford to put the money into economic development that it takes.”

Herrmann said collectively, those things can happen. “We’ve also gone to the former SOGP (Southern Ohio Growth Partnership) members and (Portsmouth area) chamber (of commerce) members who are solid in the community and want to see it grow for support,” Herrmann said. “We’ve

been very pleased with the support we’ve received from big organizations to individuals.” When asked if there were any expectations going into the fundraising campaign, Herrmann said, “We feel this is the right thing to do. We See SOPA | A3

Scioto County residents injured in Adams Co. crash Many involved airlifted to regional hospitals Wayne Allen PDT Staff Writer

ADAMS COUNTY — The Grorgetown Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) is reporting that a serious traffic accident involving three vehicles occurred Friday night on State Route 73. Several of those involved are residents from Scioto County. According to released information from OSHP, “a 2007 Dodge pickup truck, operated by Mark Maxwell, 53 of Hillsboro, Ohio was westbound on State Route 73. A 2003 Ford pickup operated by Jason Lute, 30 of McDermott, and a 1999 Ford pickup, operated Chris Thompson, 36 of Rarden were traveling eastbound on State Route 73.” Though the accident is still under investigation OSHP’s preliminary investigation indicates, “the vehicle driven by Maxwell drove left of center and struck the vehicles operated by Lute and Thompson.”

Pretrial set for Solid Waste case Wayne Allen PDT Staff Writer

It has been more than a year since the LawrenceScioto County Solid Waste Management District (LSSWMD) cut ties with the Ironton-Lawrence County Community Action Organization (CAO). Caught in the middle of what appears to be a messy divorce between the two organizations is the question of who owns vehicles that the staff of the LSSWMD were driving at the

time of separation. The vehicles include, a 2008 GMC “Savana Pass Van 3500,” a 2006 GMC Envoy, a Leonard open utility trailer, a 2008 Pontiac G6 and a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox. Since the dispute began, information and documents have been gathered from both sides trying to seek a resolution to the issue. Unable to come to a resolution, in March, Assistant Scioto County Prosecu-

tor Danielle Parker filed a complaint for declaratory judgment on behalf of the LSSWMD. After continued gridlock, a pretrial has been scheduled in Lawrence County Common Pleas Court for Dec. 11. In April the case had been assigned to Lawrence County Judge William Cooper. LSSWMD is asking for a judgment in favor of the See WASTE | A3

Blue Lace project involves a Portsmouth company Wayne Allen PDT Staff Writer

The Blue Lace Project is an idea that originated with the New York-based company Flint and Tinder. Their idea is to restore the practice of purchasing products made in the USA. Behind that thinking, Flint and Tinder has partnered with Portsmouth based Sole Choice inc., to manufacture shoe laces for the Blue Lace Project, a www.kickstarter.com project. According to the project description, “We (Flint and Tinder) asked more than a thousand retailers why they don’t carry more domestically produced products. They all said the same thing: ‘Our customers don’t care about domestically produced products.’ We need your help to prove

them wrong.” Flint and Tinders Kick Starter project goal was to raise $25,000 to mass produce the blue laces. As of Saturday afternoon pledges totaled $85,506 with 6,617 backers. “We were contacted by Flint and Tinder who had heard about us through another consumer of ours in New York City. They (Flint and Tinder) are a company based out of New York City that started a year and a half ago making men’s underwear made in the USA,” said Bryan Davis, Vice President of Sales for Sole Choice Inc. “They contacted us about a lace program, we were not sure what they wanted to do.” Davis said the company wanted to have a shoelace that screams made in America.

The project description states, “We asked one of America’s very last shoelace manufacturers (Sole Choice, Inc.) to produce the very best shoelace they’d ever made. Adding extra pressure to the pot, we promised that if they could develop something truly impressive, it had the potential to become more than just a simple shoelace; it could become a symbol. This symbol could do more than just help their business, it could help break the ongoing cycle of outsourcing and making things cheaper, faster and worse. It could help all American manufacturers.” Davis said the lace is a triple-dense, double-waxed canvas lace tipped in Aluminum. See BLUE | A3

Efforts to relax US marijuana laws lose benefactor JULIE CARR SMYTH Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — With the death of Cleveland billionaire and philanthropist Peter B. Lewis, the push for relaxed U.S. marijuana laws lost its most generous supporter. That’s left supporters wondering what comes next. Lewis, chairman of Progressive Insurance, died Saturday at age 80. Since the 1980s, he had donated an estimated $40 million to $60 million to marijuana law reform — including underwriting ballot campaigns, research, political polling and legal defense efforts. Largely through Lewis’ efforts, and those of several other billionaires, 20 states since 1996 have passed medical marijuana laws, 17 have decriminalized the drug and two have passed legalization language.

From page A1 community would support it and they have,” Herrmann said. “I’ve been asked by (SOPA) members what was realistic number that could be raised. I initially said I thought we can raise $60,000, I was confident of that. After less than a couple of months of knocking on doors and talking to people I’ve now raised that to $100,000 and I think we are going to surpass that.” Herrmann said thus far SOPA has support from Sun Coke, Southern Ohio Medical Center, Glockner’s, Hatcher Realtors, American Savings Bank and Lutes Supply. He said most of the commitments

have signed on to support SOPA for three years. He said a number of other appointments have been set up to gain more support from other organizations. Earlier this week it was announced that Jason Kester, a Columbus Attorney and Scioto County native, had been hired as SOPA’s first executive director, with an annual salary of $65,000.

Blue According to the project description, “Flint and Tinder wanted to put the lace to the test. They called upon American strongman Matt Mills and asked him to put the laces to the test. With nothing but a single pair of Blue Laces linking his harness to a set of ultra-heavy duty tow straps, Mills was able to pull a 13,000 pound truck.” The project has proven to be a success so far. “On the second day the Blue Lace Project had exceeded their goal and called us and tripled their order and they don’t think that’s the end,” Davis said. “It’s all to support American manufacturing and to show people they need to support made in the USA products.” Davis said the average life span of the blue laces

are a couple of years. He said on a normal lace the life span is around six months. In the project description video, Jake Bronstein with Flint and Tinder states, “If they’re (Blue Laces) strong enough to pull a 13,000 pound truck, they’re probably tough enough for whatever you’ll put them through…they just might be sturdy enough to pull us all together.” For more information about the Blue Lace Project visit, http://www. kickstarter.com/projects/ jakehimself/the-bluelaceproject-a-revolution-builtone-foot-a?ref=live.

Waste From page A1 Plaintiff in the amount of $230,255.59 and any amount in excess that is deemed appropriate by the court as reimbursement for any and all over payment made by Plaintiff for compensation to defendants, for the time provided and expenses incurred up to the termination date. Within the document, there are six claims for relief. LSSWMD is also asking for a judgment in favor of the Plaintiff in the amount of $84,134.49 as reimbursement for any and all funds paid by plaintiff for the purchase of the vehicles. In April, the CAO responded to the claim filed against them by the LSSWMD. In their response and counterclaim, CAO goes through each of the claims made by LSSWMD and responds to the court. CAO states they are the owner of the vehicles in questions and the plaintiff (LSSWMD) is wrongfully detaining the vehicles and trailers. CAO, states they are entitled to possession of the vehicles and trailers, or if such vehicles and trailers

cannot be recovered, they are entitled to the present value of $58,250. CAO said the termination of their agreement effective Nov. 9, 2012 the plaintiff (LSSWMD) owes the pro-rated compensation to them in the amount of $32,108.64. CAO states it has performed all of the conditions on its part, but the plaintiff has refused to pay the balance of the compensation due. CAO is asking they be granted judgment against the plaintiff (LSSWMD) for attorney fees and costs in an amount to be determined at a trial of this matter. Under all of the claims CAO, is asking the court to dismiss LSSWMD’s claims and they be granted judgment against plaintiff for interest; costs for this action; and for such other and further relief as may be just and necessary.

Gifting those who help u Gifting those who help us throughout the year Gifting those who help us throughout the year Holiday gift-giving etiquette can be confusing, especially when it comes to gifting those men and

women who aren’t necessarily friends or family members, but still help us out in a variety of ways. Deciding how to thank the people who intersect our lives by delivering mail or cleaning the pool

can take a little ingenuity. Gifting preferences often vary from region to region. What might be acceptable in a certain area of the country may be frowned upon elsewhere. For example, in urban areas cash gifts are usually appreciated, whereas rural, close-knit communities tend to give homemade gifts. The rule to remember, above all, is that if a gift is given with good intentions, it should be happily received. That being said, here are some general guidelines for gifting those men and women who help us throughout the year. * Determine your list. Think about the people with whom you interact regularly. The sanitation workers who pick up the trash twice a week and your mail carrier may take priority over the hairstylist you visit once every month or two. * Establish a budget. The holiday season can be costly, so set a firm limit on what you plan to give, perhaps between $10 and $20 each, and stick to that budget for each recipient. * Recognize that not everyone is allowed to accept gifts. Some service providers are not allowed

to accept cash gifts or presents. Government employees, for example, may be prohibited from accepting cash gifts or gifts that exceed a predetermined amount. With this in mind, gloves or a gift basket may be your best option. * Gift a little more to personal care professionals. Your hairstylists, masseuse or anyone who performs more personal tasks for you may warrant a larger gift. Etiquette suggests giving a gift equal to the price of one session of service, even if that gift is cash. Therefore if your hair cut costs $35, gift $35. * Health and child care employees warrant special treatment. A private nurse, nanny or nursing home worker should be gifted for the holidays. Avoid cash gifts with health service providers, opting for a more personal gift that is a token of your affection and appreciation. If gifts are not allowed, consider making a charitable donation in the person’s name. Visit Santa without all the tears Visit Santa without all the tears The holiday season means

season means

it’s time once again for parents to take their youngsters to visit Santa Claus. Pictures with little boys and girls lining up in their dress clothes with Santa are a holiday tradition, and youngsters are often anxious for their chances to share their Christmas gift wishes with the jolly man in red. But as integral as such photo sessions are to the holiday season, parents know they are one crying fit or meltdown away from having this tradition turn into trouble. After waiting in long lines to see Santa, it’s understandable when everyone’s patience starts to wear thin. The combination of antsy children and aggravated adults could set off a chain reaction that culminates in tear-stained cheeks and a sullied holiday memory. Pictures with Santa can go much more smoothly when you employ the following tips. * Prep children. While kids may love the idea of Santa, youngsters face to face with a man in a red suit and a big, white beard may be nervous. Begin talking up Santa a few months before Christmas, mentioning how nice and

friendly he is. Gauge how kids act around costumed performers at fairs, circuses and birthday parties and help them grow accustomed to people in costumes. If costumes elicit screams of horror, wait another year before seeing Santa. * Visit during off-peak hours. Weekends and evenings are the busiest times to visit Santa. This means long lines and longer wait times. Instead of dealing with the masses, try to get to the mall when the doors first open. Otherwise, let the children skip a day of school and visit during the week when the lines are shorter. * Consider another venue. Many different places of business host events where kids can meet Santa. Families may be able to share a meal with Santa at a restaurant or visit him at a nursery while selecting Christmas trees. A different environment may be less intimidating to children and take the pressure off waiting in line in a busy mall. * Go well-fed. There’s little worse than waiting in line and doing so hungry. Hunger pangs can turn even the most placid

child into a menace. Pack snacks to enjoy while waiting. Opt for items that will not stain lips and teeth or drip onto clothing. * Make it a family photo. Sometimes the only

way to entice a little one to take a picture with Santa is to provide some added security. Dress your best and be prepared to have to step in and cozy up to Santa to ensure your child is all smiles.

Elvis items featured at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated Press

CLEVELAND — Old-time Elvis Presley fans and lots of newer, younger ones flocked to a new exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Friday to see his stylish ID bracelet, custom-made motorcycle, eye-catching rings and military mementos. The exhibit opened in conjunction with Elvis Presley Enterprises and includes more than 40 artifacts loaned by his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tenn. The items include a walnutsize 41-carat ruby and diamond

ring, a 25.5-carat opal ring and a sapphire pinkie ring. The rock hall inducted Presley in 1986 and calls him “the undisputed King of Rock and Roll.” The rock hall says he holds records for the most Top 40 hits with 104 and the most Top 10 hits with 38. “Elvis was the creator, he was the beginning,” said fan Peter Webster, 72, of Portland, Maine, while visiting the rock hall during a family holiday gathering in Cleveland. “There were other people who sang rock ‘n roll music before he did, but he brought

rock ‘n roll music onto the stage.” Visitors lined up to watch a video montage and check out Presley’s 1975 custom made SuperTrike motorcycle and the white suit that he wore when he performed the song “If I Can Dream” in a television special. There’s also the script for a 1968 NBC special and a 1971 souvenir menu for Presley’s shows in Lake Tahoe. Presley’s Army service beginning in 1958 at Fort Chaffee, Ark., gets the headline treatment, including his fatigue shirt, his induction orders and his

signed receipt for an M1 rifle. His military service and smiling photo pointing to his sergeant’s stripes may surprise people more familiar with the anti-draft sentiment years later during the Vietnam war. “I think people respected him because he served in the Army,” Webster said. The Presley exhibit at the rock hall alongside Lake Erie is updated every two years with loaned items from Graceland. “We’re using it as a chance to introduce some really iconic artifacts and also to change up the

exhibition space. It’s more than just a refresh,” said rock hall president and CEO Greg Harris. “We all know Elvis didn’t invent rock ‘n roll. He was the shot heard ‘round the world for everybody to embrace it and be moved by it,” Harris said. Presley was born in Tupelo, Miss., on Jan. 8, 1935, and grew up surrounded by gospel music. He died of a heart attack at Graceland on Aug. 16, 1977. He was 42. Elvis Presley Enterprises was created by the Elvis Presley Trust to manage its assets.

Relative: Ohio Amish girl in chemo case doing well Associated Press

AKRON, Ohio — An Amish girl with leukemia spent time at a natural cancer treatment center in Central America after she left home with her parents in Ohio to avoid being forced to resume chemotherapy treatments, the girl’s grandfather said. Sarah Hershberger, who recently turned 11, her parents and the couple’s baby daughter now are in hiding in the United States, Isaac Keim said.

The family left the small Amish community where they live in rural northeast Ohio just days before a state appeals court appointed a guardian in October to take over medical decisions for the Sarah, said Keim, who told the Akron Beacon Journal that he accompanied them to the unnamed clinic. The Hershbergers have been fighting doctors at Akron’s Children’s Hospital in court for months after the parents decided to halt the treatments be-

versed. “What kind of gift would that be, if we could get this resolved and they can come back home without a fear of being in contempt of court or having their child snatched away,” Keim said. “We’re praying every day that this thing can be resolved and get their lives back together.” The Hershberger’s five other children are staying with community members near their farm outside the village

of Spencer in Medina County, about 35 miles southwest of Cleveland. Keim said that CT scans and blood tests show that the natural treatments are working. He said she is cancerfree. “She’s a vibrant, healthy girl,” Keim said. The Amish are deeply religious and shun many facets of modern life, but they don’t reject modern medicine. Andy Hershberger said this past summer that the family agreed to

begin two years of chemotherapy for Sarah last spring but stopped treatment in June because it was making her extremely sick. Officials at Akron’s Children’s Hospital have said they are morally and legally obligated to make sure the girl receives proper care. They said the girl’s illness, lymphoblastic lymphoma, is an aggressive form of nonHodgkin lymphoma, but there is a high survival rate with treatment.

cause they were making Sarah sick. Doctors say her leukemia is treatable, but say she will die within a year without chemotherapy. The hospital sought to force treatment after the family opted to try natural medicines, such as herbs and vitamins. The family has appealed the court decision that gave an attorney who’s also a registered nurse limited guardianship over Sarah. They don’t plan on returning until the ruling is re-

DAYTON, Ohio — A new veterans court in one of southwestern Ohio’s largest counties is trying to help and support criminal offenders who have served in the military. The new Montgomery County court is one of about a dozen specialty courts or dockets in Ohio set up for veterans. Nine more courts around the state are awaiting certification for such efforts, according to the Dayton Daily News . The court kicked off this month with eight defendants appearing before Montgomery County Common Pleas Court Judge Dennis Adkins,

who thanked each of them for their military service before addressing their charges or probation possibilities. “I figure if anyone needs a second chance or help, it’s those that have served our country,” Adkins said. “They’d come back from a tour in Afghanistan or Iraq and they’d get involved in the criminal justice system and usually by the use of alcohol or drugs or some sort of violent outbreak … there has to be some sort of relationship.” Veterans courts are designed to help former members of the military work on the issues that may have led to

their crimes, such as substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder or mental health issues. Court officials also can link participants to job training, benefits and housing services. Willis Taylor, an Army veteran who served for four years in the 1980s and became an alcoholic and homeless, said veterans court has helped him stay sober for more than a year, get off the streets and find a good job in the commissary at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. “I actually look forward to going to the court every month,” Taylor said. “They actually help instead of trying to hurt you.”

For inaugural poet, a journey home to America CHRISTINE ARMARIO Associated Press

MIAMI — The Miami neighborhood where inaugural poet Richard Blanco grew up, in many ways, resembles Cuba his family left behind. Down the street, a man sells avocados from a small table. His favorite bakery, a few blocks north, serves guava pastries and cafe con leche. As a child and even as an adult, this was home. But it wasn’t necessarily what he imagined as America. “There’s always a little part of you as an immigrant that goes, ‘Well, I’m not really American,’” Blanco said in an interview Monday with The Associated Press at his mother’s home in Miami. “There’s that other little boy on TV or some place I haven’t been yet.” That feeling of displacement has been at the crux of his poetry. When it came to writing the poem for the 2013 inauguration of Barack Obama, however, he was forced to re-examine his own rela-

tionship with America and what it meant to be American. Blanco was born 45 years ago in Spain to Cuban immigrants who moved to the United States when he was an infant. The experience of writing the poem, Blanco said, was transformative. “I finally realized that my story, my mother’s stories, all those millions of stories of faces that were looking at me at the podium, that is America,” said Blanco, the nation’s first Latino and openly gay inaugural poet. “I finally realized that I’m not the other.” Blanco describes the writing the inaugural poem and two others — and the journey he has embarked on since — in a book, “For All of Us, One Today: An Inaugural Poet’s Journey,” recently published by Beacon Press. Tasked with writing three poems in three weeks, Blanco said he struggled initially on the direction to take. He doesn’t know how or why he was chosen though he knew the White House committee’s choice was symbolic.

Man charged in fiery Ohio crash that killed couple Associated Press FREMONT, Ohio — An Ohio motorist traveling at more than 125 mph was charged Friday with vehicular homicide after his car struck a minivan, killing a couple inside, the State Highway Patrol said. Andrew D. Gans, of Kent, faces two counts of vehicular homicide with a reckless specification after Thursday night’s crash on the Ohio Turnpike, where both vehicles burst into flames. The victims, Wilbur and Margaret McCoy, both 77, of Toledo, were wearing seatbelts when they were hit and were trapped inside of the minivan, the patrol said. Gans, 24, suffered injuries that were not lifethreatening and was hospitalized for psychiatric evaluation at a Toledo hospital, said staff Lt. Anne Ralston, a patrol spokeswoman. He was later released from the hospital and taken to Lucas County jail, according to the hospital and jail records. Gans has spoken with investigators, but Ralston declined to comment on what he said or whether he offered any explanation for his alleged erratic driving. No court date has been set and the case will go to a grand jury. The patrol said the incident remains under investigation. Two troopers separately spotted Gans’ car but weren’t able to catch or keep up with it before the crash near Fremont, about 40 miles southeast of Toledo, Ralston said. Other drivers began calling dispatchers about the

speeding, weaving vehicle just before 7 p.m., about 20 minutes before it crashed into the back of the minivan. The driver covered roughly 60 miles in that time and passed two troopers, each of whom tried to pull behind the westbound car but lost sight of it as it sped away, Ralston said. “Just because it was going so fast, we were never able to get into a position where we were actually engaged in a pursuit with it,” Ralston said. “We were simply trying to catch up and intercept this vehicle and get it stopped.” The speeding vehicle stunned some holiday travelers who witnessed it. Josh Pickett of Toledo told The Toledo Blade that he was headed home from Thanksgiving dinner with relatives in Cleveland when the speeding driver passed him, followed about a minute later by a state police cruiser. “I was going 76, and the guy passes me like I was standing still,” Pickett told the newspaper. He said within a few minutes, traffic suddenly stopped “and I saw really big flames.” Ty Mahaffey told The Blade a car zoomed by him “at an enormously high rate of speed. … I have never seen a passenger car going so fast.” The Toledo resident said he was going around 80 mph “and when he passed me, it was like I was going in reverse.” He said afterward he had to pull over briefly to collect himself. The turnpike’s westbound lanes were closed for several hours but reopened early Friday.

Egypt panel begins vote on draft constitution MARIAM RIZK & TONY G. GABRIEL Associated Press

CAIRO — The panel amending Egypt’s suspended constitution began voting Saturday on some 250 changes, the first step toward democratic rule following the July military coup that ousted the country’s president. The constitution before the 50-member committee makes drastic changes in ensuring civil liberties, fighting discrimination, criminalizing torture, protecting religious freedoms and giving lawmakers power to remove the president. Yet the draft also allows Egypt’s powerful military to choose its own chief and try civilians in military tribunals. The constitutional

changes come amid a heavy handed crackdown on dissent that’s left the country largely divided between supporters and opponents of the military that toppled Mohammed Morsi, the country’s first freely elected president. “This is the path of rescue from the current condition,” said Amr Moussa, the elder Egyptian statesman leading the constitutional panel. “It is the transition from disturbances to stability and from economic stagnation to development.” The military suspended the Islamist-drafted, voterapproved 2012 constitution in the July 3 coup that ousted Morsi. The constitutional panel, dominated by secularists, has been working on changes as part of a military-backed

timeline that calls for voters to approve it. It plans for parliamentary and presidential elections to be held early next year. On Saturday, 48 panel members began voting on the changes in a session aired live on state television. Most articles passed unanimously. One issue the panel faced was how the principles of Islamic law, or Shariah, already called the main source of law in Egypt, should be defined. Some feared a definition would allow for a heavier implementation of Shariah and the creation of a religious state. The panel voted to refer to Supreme Constitutional Court’s limited definition of Shariah’s principles. That “didn’t appease the Islamist representative,” said panel member Kamal

el-Helbawi, an independent who once belonged to Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood. The panel voted for an amendment banning slavery, human trafficking and “the sex trade.” The panel’s sole Islamist party representative opposed the amendment, as some say the article restricts early marriages. The panel also voted in favor of abolishing the upper house of parliament, the Shura Council, as well as an amendment defining Egypt as a “civilian” government in Arabic. That term angers Islamists, who say it means secular. Among articles the panel will vote on Sunday is one allowing lawmakers to vote out an elected president and call for early elections if they have a

two-thirds majority. Another allows parliament to prosecute the president for “violating the rules of the constitution.” A proposed change also prohibits the establishment of political parties on religious grounds, meaning the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice party and Al-Nour, the political arm of Salafi Call movement, could be banned. Other controversial changes up for a vote include one giving the military the right to choose its own army chief, who serves as the defense minister, over a transitional period of eight years. Another gives the military the right to try civilians in front of military tribunals for a series of crimes. The tribunals are known for swift and harsh verdicts that cannot be appealed.

Thai political protesters clash violently, 1 dead THANYARAT DOKSONE Associated Press

BANGKOK — Aggressive political protests in the Thai capital turned violent late Saturday with at least one man killed and five wounded by gunshots in street fighting between supporters and opponents of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. It was not immediately known who fired the shots or what side the victims were on. National Police Deputy Spokesman Anucha Romyanan said the dead man was a 21-yearold male with two bullet

wounds. The violence in the short run may stir fears of further instability like what plagued the country during related political conflicts in 2006, 2008 and 2010. Any escalation of violence is likely to scare away tourists who come to Thailand by the millions and contribute a huge chunk to the economy. But it may help the government by undermining the claims of its opponents to be carrying out a nonviolent campaign of civil disobedience. The violence is likely to scare away some supporters who would oth-

erwise attend the opposition’s rallies. Matters were feared to come to a head Sunday, when the protesters vowed to seize the well-guarded prime minister’s offices. The demonstrators are seeking to topple Yingluck’s government, which they believe serves the interests of her brother, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted by a 2006 military coup after being accused of corruption and abuse of power. The authorities have exercised extreme restraint over the past week as the

protesters besieged and occupied parts of various government ministries and offices, aware that using force could tip public opinion and perhaps become an excuse for the military to take power in the name of restoring order. Conventional wisdom in the Thai capital has been that the protesters have been seeking that. A special police-led peacekeeping agency said Saturday that the military agreed to send 2,730 personnel to help with security on the streets Sunday. Although the army has declared itself neutral in the

current crisis, it deposed Thaksin in 2006 and shows little sympathy for him. The shootings Saturday night occurred after scattered violence during the day involving government opponents attacking several people they believed were going to a rally at a stadium of “Red Shirt” government supporters. While the main sites occupied by anti-government protesters remained peaceful, the violence broke out near a stadium where a crowd that appeared to number well over 50,000 Red Shirts rallied in support of the government.

Scottish holiday marred by crash BEN McCONVILE & CASSANDRA VINOGRAD Associated Press

GLASGOW, Scotland — Scotland’s official holiday was transformed into a grim day of mourning Saturday as emergency crews searched the wreckage of a riverside pub smashed by a falling police helicopter. At least eight people died and more than a dozen remained hospitalized with serious injuries. The Clutha, a popular Glasgow pub, was filled with revelers enjoying a local ska band on Friday night, the eve of St. Andrew’s Day, named for the patron saint of Scotland and which is normally a celebration of Scottish culture and heritage. Instead, Scotland’s leader ordered flags at government buildings to be lowered to half-staff after the tragedy. “This is a black day for Glasgow and Scotland, but it’s also St. Andrew’s Day, and it’s a day we can take pride and courage in how we respond to adversity and tragedy,” Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond said. There may be more bad news. Police said a rescue and recovery operation is ongoing and that it wasn’t clear what will be found once the aircraft’s wreckage is removed. The process may take days. That means more waiting for people who don’t know if their loved ones were in The Clutha at the fateful moment when the helicopter fell from the sky, directly hitting the riverside drinking establishment. Witnesses said it seemed to fall straight down into the roof of the pub. The crash Friday at around 10:30 p.m. sent dozens of patrons fleeing through a cloud of dust. Witnesses spoke of people streaming out of the building covered in blood, with gashes and other injuries. Ambulances rushed to the scene, taking the injured to nearby hospitals. Local resident Paul Dundas, 26, said he heard a loud bang and looked out of his window to see a plume of dust rising above the pub. “At first I thought it was a firework,” he said. “People were covered in blood and dust. Other people were dragging them away from the bar and trying to get them out. Everyone was in shock, but people were helping and asking strangers if they were OK. I saw a couple help each other clean up their faces.” Chief Constable Stephen House said three of the dead were found in the helicopter, which was carrying two police officers and a civilian pilot. They “were our colleagues,” House said, bowing his head and taking a long pause and swallow. He said the five other fatalities were found inside the building and that 14 people remained hospitalized with serious injuries. House wouldn’t say if more people are believed to be inside the severely damaged pub. He said the helicopter is still “dominating the whole space” in the onestory building and that police won’t know the situation until the wreckage is cleared away. It wasn’t immediately clear what the helicopter was doing in the area prior to the crash. Police and air safety investigators say it’s too early to speculate on why the Eurocopter EC135 T2 helicopter came down on the pub’s roof, close to a helipad on the bank of the River Clyde. Police said the scene was extremely dangerous because the building was unstable. “We are dealing with a very sensitive investigation and operation here,” House said. “It will go on for many days yet.”

Cougars down Bears for 2nd time this season SSU Release

ADRIAN, Mich. – The Shawnee State women’s basketball fell to NAIA DII No. 4 St. Francis (IN) 98-76 in the opening game of the Siena Heights Thanksgiving Tournament. It was the second defeat that the Bears suffered to the Cougars this season as USF ran away with the contest in the second half. In the season opening game, USF also scored 98 points while SSU tallied 91 points in that previous contest. Shawnee State got a game-high 29 points from Priscila Santos

while Alannah Sheets added 26 points, which the second-highest total of any player in the game. However, their point totals were not nearly enough to keep up with the four Cougar starters that scored 18 or more points. Jenelle Wilson led the USF offensive effort with 25 points while Skylarr Shurn (21 points), Brooke Ridley (20 points) and Akyah Taylor (18 points) combined for 84 of the team’s total points. Despite the final score, Shawnee State held a lead in the opening minutes of the second half in what was a back-and-forth affair

into the final 20 minutes. In the first half of the game, the Bears and Cougars were tied on five

different occasions. Shawnee State’s largest lead of the game came with 3:17 to play in the opening half after a layup from Ali Zieverink gave the Bears the largest lead by either side in the first 20 minutes. That lead was then matched with 2:26 to play in the opening half when Santos answered a USF basket to put SSU up 40-35. However, the Cougars scored seven of the last nine points in the half and took a 43-42 lead into the locker rooms. A basket by Santos to start the second half put the Bears back on top by one just a couple seconds into the second half. Diane

Abbady would then hit a layup with 19:13 to play, giving SSU a 47-46 lead. However, that would be the final time the Bears held a lead in the contest. A free throw from Abbady with 18:27 on the clock would force the game’s seventh tie. However, an 8-0 run to give USF a 55-47 lead with 15:03 to play was a sign of things to come. A pair of free throws from Sheets and a basket from Santos got SSU to within four at 55-51 with 14:06 to play. The Cougars would stretch that lead back to See COUGARS | 4

No. 3 Ohio State holds on to beat Michigan, 42-41 Larry Lage

The Associated Press

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The 110th game between Ohio State and Michigan might have been the most thrilling, a back-and-forth affair that came down to one final play. The Wolverines went for the win — and the Buckeyes stayed undefeated. Tyvis Powell intercepted Devin Gardner’s 2-point conversion pass with 32 seconds left and

No. 3 Ohio State held on for a 42-41 victory against Michigan on Saturday as one of the greatest rivalries in sports added another memorable chapter to its storied history. “That’s an instant classic,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. Gardner threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Devin Funchess to make it 42-41, but instead of kicking for the tie and possibly pushing the game to overtime, Wolverines coach Brady Hoke asked his players if

they wanted to go for it and got a unanimous response. “We played the game to win,” Hoke said. Gardner tried to zip a pass to Drew Dileo into traffic near the goal line, but Powell came up with it and the quarterback was left lying on his back with his arms extended to his side, the back of his helmet resting on the cold turf. “We felt like we could win the game right there,” Gardner said,

looking and sounding as saddened as any athlete after a setback. Buckeyes cornerback Roby Bradley recovered the onside kick to seal Ohio State’s 24th consecutive victory and keep its national championship hopes alive. Meyer insisted the streak was not as significant as winning his second game in as many tries against Michigan. “No question — the win See OSU | 4

Neb’s athletic director: Pelini will remain coach Eric Olson

The Associated Press

Nebraska coach Bo Pelini is safe for now. Athletic director Shawn Eichorst issued a statement Saturday expressing support for Pelini and his staff and quashing speculation that the sixth-year coach’s job was in jeopardy following a disappointing regular season. The Cornhuskers are 8-4, 5-3 in the Big Ten, after their 38-17 loss to Iowa on Friday. Pelini is 57-24 at Nebraska, but the school has not won a conference title since 1999. The Huskers will learn their bowl destination next weekend. Eichorst, who is in his first full year as athletic director, until Saturday had adhered to his policy of not commenting about his coaches until after their seasons. “However,” he said in his statement, “given the volume of unfounded speculation and conjecture about our head football coach, I want to reaffirm what I have said many times since I have arrived at the University of Nebraska — that I positively respect,

appreciate and support our football student-athletes, coaches and staff, as we do everyone in the Husker family. “We very much look forward to our upcoming bowl game and Coach Pelini continuing to lead our program in the future.” A message seeking comment was left on Pelini’s cell phone. Pelini is under contract through the 2017 season and is paid almost $3 million a year. Pelini’s contract is extended one year after each season he receives a positive job review from the athletic director. Former athletic director Tom Osborne extended Pelini’s contract last year just a few days after the 70-31 loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game. It wasn’t known when Pelini’s next job evaluation would be done. Eichorst was not available for comment beyond his statement. Had Eichorst decided to fire Pelini now, the university would have owed Pelini more than $7.6 million, according to his contract. Pelini on Friday did nothing to tamp down speculation that his job

Nebraska athletic director Shawn Eichorst said in a statement Saturday that he has his full support in head football coach Bo

was on the line. He was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct after nearly making contact with the head linesman with his cap while protesting a pass-interference penalty. He was terse at halftime with the ABC sideline reporter who asked him a question he didn’t like. After the game, Pelini used an expletive to describe

the pass-interference call and, while defending his record, said, “If they want to fire me, go ahead.” The 45-year-old Pelini first appeared at Nebraska in 2003 as defensive coordinator for Frank Solich. He oversaw remarkable defensive improvement that season, and after Solich was fired, he was interim head coach for the Husk-

ers’ bowl win. Pelini and the rest of the staff were let go after the game, and Pelini went on to be a coordinator at Oklahoma and LSU. Pelini, coming off a national championship at LSU, was a popular choice when then-athletic director Tom Osborne hired him to replace Bill Callahan after the 2007 season.

Pelini never won fewer than nine games, nor lost fewer than four, in his first five seasons. Nebraska hasn’t finished higher than No. 20 in the final Associated Press poll since 2009, and 10 of the Huskers’ last 12 losses have been by double digits. Turnovers and poor special-teams play have hampered them.

No. 11 Michigan St. shuts down Minnesota, 14-3 Noah Trister

The Associated Press

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Max Bullough left the field after one last victory at Spartan Stadium, and although the focus would quickly turn to next weekend’s Big Ten title game, the Michigan State linebacker didn’t want to let go of this moment. “I looked back right before I walked in the tunnel, and just tried to take it in,” said Bullough, a senior. “Just tried to stop for a minute. That’s one of the things that’s hard for me — to just stop for a minute and understand not only the players I’ve played with, the coaches

I’ve had, but all the hard work.” Bullough led another fabulous effort by the Michigan State defense, and the 11thranked Spartans wrapped up an unbeaten regular season in Big Ten play with a 14-3 victory over Minnesota on Saturday. Jeremy Langford ran for 134 yards and a touchdown for Michigan State, which had already clinched a spot in next weekend’s league championship game against Ohio State. The Spartans went undefeated at home for the third time in four years. They’ve also reached 11 wins in each of those seasons, but Michigan State has not played in the Rose Bowl since 1988.

“Everybody sets goals for themselves, and that’s a goal that we’ve not yet accomplished,” coach Mark Dantonio said. “So that’s the No. 1 goal, to be outright Big Ten champion, and the way the format is structured now, would be something that would be very important to this program. Obviously, to get to the Rose Bowl is something that we’ve aspired to since the day we set foot on this campus.” The Spartans (11-1, 8-0) finished a perfect Big Ten regular season for only the third time. They also did it in 1965 and 1966, when they only had to play seven conference games. There was no letdown

against Minnesota (8-4, 4-4). Michigan State’s topranked defense forced three turnovers and kept the Golden Gophers out of the end zone. The Spartans took the lead right away Saturday on Langford’s 15-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, which capped a seven-play, 80-yard drive. Minnesota’s Philip Nelson attempted only seven passes in the first half, and two of them were picked off by Michigan State’s Trae Waynes. “You’re not going to lose many games giving up three points,” Dantonio said. Chris Hawthorne’s 21yard field goal made it 7-3, and the Spartans missed a

chance to score at the end of the half when Connor Cook was intercepted at the Minnesota 24 by Derrick Wells in the final seconds. Michigan State went 75 yards in eight plays to start the third quarter and led 14-3 after Cook’s 12-yard scoring pass to Josiah Price. Minnesota had a chance to get back in the game in the fourth when backup quarterback Mitch Leidner directed a drive deep into Michigan State territory. But Leidner was sacked and fumbled, and the Spartans recovered at their own 14 with 4:45 to play. “It was a physical football game,” Gophers coach Jerry Kill said. “I thought

we physically played hard, defensively played good, and offensively we moved the ball. We just didn’t finish drives.” Minnesota’s David Cobb ran for 101 yards, not a bad day against a Michigan State team ranked No. 1 in the nation in total defense. But Nelson went 6 of 18 for 77 yards, and Leidner was 3 of 7 for 48 yards. “It makes it tough moving around in the pocket when you’ve got guys flying all around you,” Leidner said. “Credit to them. They got great pressure on us. At the same time, our offensive line played great all day. Both Phil and I have to make throws.”

a news conference with a protective boot on his left foot. “That’s what I will remember.” Miller ran for 153 yards and three TDs and threw for 133 yards and two scores. Hyde ran for 226 yards to help Ohio State win for the ninth time in 10 games against Michigan, but he fumbled in the fourth quarter to help Michigan tie the game for a fourth time with 5:01 left. Both teams scored at least 41 points for the first time in their rivalry that dates to 1897. “I have such great respect for this rivalry,” Meyer said. “Coach Hayes was from a different generation. He would have wanted a 10-9 game, but he would have wanted to see the two teams playing as hard as they can.” Gardner was 32 of 45 for 451 yards and four TDs, connecting nine times for 175 yards and a score to Jeremy Gallon, and ran for a 1-yard TD that gave Michigan the first lead in the high-scoring game that went to halftime tied at 21. Gardner fumbled in the third quarter and Ohio State took advantage of the turnover on the ensuing drive with a Miller’s go-ahead, 3-yard TD. It was a slug fest — liter-

ally for a few moments. The teams exchanged pushes and some punches in the second quarter after a Michigan kickoff. The Buckeyes lost starting right guard Marcus Hall and kick returner Dontre Wilson and the Wolverines lost backup linebacker Royce JenkinsStone to ejections. All three players were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and had to leave the field after a skirmish. Hall and Wilson appeared to throw punches. JenkinsStone tugged Wilson’s helmet off and tossed it to the turf. “It was unacceptable,” Meyer said. While walking off the field and toward the tunnel, Hall put both arms into the air and flashed a familiar obscene gesture, extended middle fingers, to the Michigan crowd. Punishment could potentially linger for Ohio State if both players are suspended for next week’s Big Ten championship game. “The conference office will wait until after the game for the officials’ written report, review the video and then take further action if needed,” Big Ten spokesman Scott Chipman wrote in an email to The Associated Press.

nal baskets from the Bears left the game at a 22-point margin. After going 17-of-37 (45.9%) from the field in the opening half, SSU went 13-of-37 (35.1%) in the second half but this percentage included an 0-for-9 effort from beyond the arc in the second half. USF went 16-of-32 (50%) in the opening half

and improved to 18-of33 (54.5%) in the second half. In total, the Cougars went 9-of-12 from beyond the arc for the game. They also went 21-of-24 from the free throw line while SSU had just 15 free throw attempts total. The Bears will play in Sunday’s consolation game.

OSU From page B1 over our rival is better,” he said. Braxton Miller accounted for a career-high matching five touchdowns for Ohio State (12-0, 8-0) and Carlos Hyde ran for a 1-yard score with 2:20 left to make it 42-35. The Buckeyes will play Michigan State in the Big Ten title game next Saturday in Indianapolis, needing to beat the Spartans, and have No. 1 Alabama or No. 2 Florida State lose a game to have a chance to reach the BCS national championship game. The Wolverines (7-5, 3-5) started strong as a 16 1-2-point underdog and didn’t wilt when Ohio State went up 35-21 late in the third quarter, one drive after Gardner threw an incomplete pass on fourthand-2 when Hoke opted against attempting a 31yard field goal. “They didn’t let up at all,” Miller said. Michigan, though, couldn’t make a pivotal play in a shootout that might’ve given it the biggest upset in the series since Bo Schembechler’s first team at Michigan beat what Woody Hayes said was his best Buckeyes squad in 1969. “I threw an interception that cost us the win,” said Gardner, who limped into

10 points with 11:16 to play. With USF holding a 6657 lead with 9:27 to play, the Cougars blew the contest wide open by scoring 22 of the next 27 points and held an 87-62 lead with 5:37 remaining in the game. Their largest lead of the game was 26 points with 1:59 to play before two fi-

A tale of Mac and Mirabelle Frank Lewis PDT Staff Writer

Miracles seem to occur around the holiday season, or maybe our senses are just a little more acute and we just believe miracles occur more around the holiday season. But don’t tell Janine Hansing that. She believes. Our story begins with the love of a mother and her son. In this case, it is Janine, and her horse Mac (named for her dad). To say Janine loved Mac from the start is an understatement. It may be no one else’s business, but quite frankly, she had decided Mac, born June 3, 2007, would be her only child, though it’s kind of misleading because, as the operator of an animal rescue, she views all of the animals as her children. But there is no doubt, Mac was her son. Then tragedy of a proportion she could hardly overcome occurred. In February of this year, Mac got very sick. So she took him to Hagyard Medical Center in Lexington, Ky. recommended by her veterinarian Tim Renn. Surgery was done on Mac to the tune of $20,000. “He meant everything to me, so there was not a question in my mind that I was going to do that for him,” Hansing said. “But he never really recovered from surgery. He stayed there for 14 days and he was very sick the whole time.” Finally they recommended Janine bring him home. For the last nine months, Janine has stayed at home taking care of Mac while still teaching riding lessons and training horses at Myhio Haven Horse Farm, 9010 Ohio 125 in West Portsmouth. Her beloved Mac passed away between 2 - 5 p.m. on Nov. 5. “My world shattered. He was like my son,” Hansing said. We may be getting a little ahead of the story. It actually began with another horse. “I made a decision to breed my mare, Sadie, who is a Belgian Warm Blood, and she is just this outstanding horse I have taken to shows in Lexington, Ky., and I ridden had her with George Morris, coach of the U.S. Olympic Team for Show Jumping.”

The result of that coupling was Mac. “Mac was just this beautiful boy with kind of a unique color out of a black horse - his mom is black,” Hansing said. “He’s a Dunne, a lighter blonde color. So it’s kind of an interesting color to get out of her. He was just the joy of my life.” Here is where the miracle comes in. Exactly a week later at 2:40 p.m., she went to put the horses out to pasture, and that is when it happened. “I went to Sadie’s stall first. I usually put the others out, Sadie is older and kind of slow,” Hansing said. “I thought, ‘oh, she’s breathing really hard, and she’s walking really slow. I hope she’s not collicing. I

hope she’s not sick, mourning the loss of her son.’” So Janine put Sadie in the pasture. “A birth sac and a hoof was coming out, and I totally panicked,” Hansing said. “I continued to let her out in the field. I ran in the house and called my vet and said, ‘Tim, Sadie is having a baby and she’s not supposed to even be pregnant.” Hansing returned Sadie to her stall where she gave birth to a beautiful new filly, which Hansing said looks identical to her own Mac, born exactly a week after he had passed. She looks just like Mac. She has two white socks on the back instead of one, but she has that star and a snip just like he did. She even has two whirls on her fore-

head, just like Mac, and she acts just like he did. “When a horse has two whirls, they say it’s good luck,” Hansing said. “I named her Mirabelle.” Mirabelle means “wondrous” or “of wondrous beauty”, or, you guessed it, “miracle.” Janine said the entire week was beautiful. The sun was shining - the leaves were blowing - the wind was high - and it was a new beginning following a tragedy. What makes the story amazing is that Sadie had been bred on June 1, 2012. Tim checked her after two weeks to confirm she was in foal. Now, while it is rare, horses can have twins, so you have to always check them. “He said, ‘yes, she’s pregnant, and it’s not twins,

so you’re good,’” Hansing said. “Bear in mind, when I bred her, Mac had not gotten sick yet.” In August the vet broke the news to her. After he checked Sadie, he had to tell her that she had lost the baby. “I said, I have Mac, he’s my baby, and she’s just too old, so we won’t try again,” Hansing said. February, Mac got sick, he died on Nov. 5. Then, a week later, new life came to brighten a dark world.

The birth came 17 1/2 months after she had been bred for the last time. The gestation period for the average horse is 11 1/2 months, and she said she had heard of one lasting 15 months, but 17 1/2? “She has just been this new joy in my life that keeps me going,” Hansing said. So Janine goes on, even planning a possible winter horse show at her horse farm. She’s still trying to get her 501(c)(3) status

to hopefully find donations and funding from the community for a non-profit animal rescue, and she’s even offering Christmas riding lesson specials, but there is one that is never far from her mind. “It can’t be OK that he is gone,” Hansing said. “On the other hand, how can I be upset when I have this miracle baby.” Frank Lewis may be reached at 740-3533101, ext. 252, or at flewis@civitasmedia. com.

can dictate. Their children may still consider this woman to be their aunt, and their relationship to her does not include the bitterness and rancor you are hanging onto. Please let it go. Allowing your ex to rattle you after all these years gives her power over you. You don’t have to enjoy her company, but you can work on making her presence insignificant. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Too Late To Try Again,” whose relative cut her off without explanation. The same thing happened to me. I attended a family reunion in Michigan four years ago. A cousin’s wife was the organizer, and I thought she did a great job. The next year, I didn’t receive an invitation. I contacted the wife, who blocked me on Facebook. I haven’t a clue what I did, but I’m glad I read that column. It saved me years of frustration. -- Thankful in Kansas

Horoscope HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Dec. 2, 2013: This year you express unusual creativity and magnetism. As a result, a plethora of possibilities open up. You could make your life much more dynamic. Even if you are content with the status quo, still expect some swift changes. If you are single, you suddenly will find a wonderful person who gives you a reason to change your status. If you are attached, your love life could take some exciting twists and turns. A fellow SAGITTARIUS has a lot of helpful information. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-Soso; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. You will be far more detached from a situation that seems to be triggering others. Don’t worry -- others will catch up. You might choose to explain your logic to a receptive audience. Tonight: Run a holiday errand or two. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH You might want to listen to others more carefully. Note what is not being said as well as what is being said. When you read between the lines you will get a better sense of direction in an important partnership. Your instincts also guide you. Tonight: Be mysterious. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Others want to dominate. Let them be in

control, or encourage them to think that they are. If you delegate, you’ll have an opportunity to have more “you” time. Whether you run out to do some shopping or just hang out at home, you will enjoy this. Tonight: A must appearance. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You might want to approach a matter totally differently. Consider and investigate alternatives to take care of what is mandatory in order to get more free time. Brainstorm with associates if you don’t see the most effective solution. Tonight: Out late. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Consider that maybe you are not meant to “settle in.” Your unusual, creative and dynamic thinking might not be able to flourish in the status quo. Surprising news could come forward. You’ll have a lot of choices -- perhaps more than you might realize. Tonight: Be a wild thing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Be willing to take a stand, even if you’re advised otherwise. You could be exhausted by a certain situation and your quest to find the right answer. Take news with a grain of salt. Assume the lead, as you are more grounded than others. Tonight: Into the wee hours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH Reach out to a dear friend whom you always enjoy. This person might have a different perspective

that you often need to hear. Schedule a get-together very soon. In the meantime, listen to the feedback you receive. Tonight: A meeting could go late. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH A risk or an offer might not be the best path. You easily could make a mistake or a bad decision. Understand where someone else is coming from, yet be willing to say “no.” You will see life from a renewed perspective if you honor boundaries. Tonight: Your treat. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH If you are honest with yourself, you might not be sure as to which way to head with a personal matter. You might want to discuss a situation more openly. You will get what you want from this situation, but be sure you know what that is. Tonight: As you like it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Know when it is necessary to take a back seat. The unexpected will continue to be the theme. You’ll have a choice either to sit back and get a sense of humor or to let yourself be somewhat upset. You know what is best for you. Tonight: Take a deep breath, then decide. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH A financial matter could be undermining you, if you allow it to. Look at your longterm personal goals before you take action. Initially, you could be uncomfortable, but

you will make your life much better if you handle this now. Tonight: Celebrate a new beginning. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Take a stand. Your instincts will help you follow through on an important matter. You might feel pressured to process a problem. A new beginning becomes possible with a boss or supervisor. Be willing to ask for what you want. Now is the time. Tonight: No risk-taking. BORN TODAY Singer Britney Spears (1981), actor Lucy Liu (1968), fashion designer Gianni Versace (1946)

FAO president receives Emerging Ohio Portsmouth Public Library events Philanthropist Award Closure of the Northwest Library Branch

At the October Board meeting, the Library Trustees made the difficult decision to permanently close the Northwest Library branch due to structural and environmental issues with the building. Union Township did attempt repairs but the cost to complete all repairs to the 1930s school building is beyond their budget. The Library is very grateful to both the Northwest Board of Education and Union Township for allowing PPL to house a branch in the building since 2001. The bookmobile will continue to service Northwest patrons at the NW branch parking lot. Bookmobile staff is working on a schedule. Northwest staff will be re-assigned and the collection will be re-cataloged to other locations. At this time, no discussion has occurred with the Board about relocating the NW branch.
