BY ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — A special deficit-reduction supercommittee appears likely to admit failure on Monday, unable or unwilling to compromise on a mix of spending cuts and tax increases required to meet its assignment of saving taxpayers at least $1.2 trillion over the coming decade. The panel is sputtering to a close after two months of talks in which the members were never able to get close to bridging a fundamental divide over how much to raise taxes to address a budget deficit that forced the government to borrow 36 cents of every dollar it spent last year. Members of the bipartisan panel, formed during the summer crisis over raising the government’s borrowing limit, spent their time on Sunday in testy performances on television talk shows, blaming each other for the impasse. In a series of television interviews, not a single panelist seemed optimistic about any last-minute breakthrough. And it was clear that the two sides had never gotten particularly close, at

LEE ADAMS (left), of Piqua, and Jason Truesdale, of Sidney, cut into a piece of metal similar to the kind of metal used in grain silos at the Sidney TruPointe grain elevator Saturday. Area firefighters participated in grain rescue training exercises at the elevator, which included the use of a new grain rescue tube.

Firefighters’ training deals with rescue from grain bins BY JENNIFER BUMGARNER

Several fire departments in Shelby County participated in a grain rescue training exercise on Saturday to learn how to use a new tool to rescue people from a life-threatening situation. Firefighters from Sidney Fire and Emergency Services, Fort Loramie, Houston, Lockington, Maplewood, Port Jefferson, Russia, New Knoxville, Osgood and Shelby County were on hand for the training exercise. The reason for the training was because of the recent purchase of a new grain rescue tube. The tube, from Liberty Rescue Tube, will See DEBT/Page 2 be used in situations where a person becomes

trapped in flowing grain such as inside a storage bin, silo or truck. The tube is placed around the victim and the grain left inside the tube is vacuumed out, which then frees the victim. The tool will be kept at Sidney Fire and will be available to anyone in or around Shelby County. Purchase of the equipment cost about $4,000 and the training cost was $3,000. The money was collected through donations from farmers and businesses, including Wappoo Wood Products, Unity Bank, Farmers Elevator, Farm Credit, Race Cars and Future Stars, Crop Production Service, C and H Trucking, Cargill, Red Cross, Trupointe, Home Depot, Eric Smith, Bill Patterson and Rob Joslin.

“The wealthiest Americans who earn over a million a year have to share too. And that line in the sand, we haven’t seen Republicans willing to cross yet,” she said Republicans said Democrats’ demands on taxes were simply too great and weren’t accompanied by large enough proposals to curb the explosive growth of so-called entitlement programs like Medicare and Medicaid. “If you look at the Democrats’ position it was ‘We have to raise taxes. We have to pass this jobs bill, which is another almost half-trillion dollars. And we’re not excited about entitlement reform,’ ” countered Republican Jon Kyl of Arizona on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

After conditioning for a month, fourth- and fifth-grade students at Northwood Elementary School recently participated in a one-mile Turkey Trot on school grounds. The Turkey Trot was held Nov. 9 for all students. As part of the school’s physical education and health program, students worked with teachers Angie Mentges and Darla Kreitzer to prepare for the event. Starting this year, younger students in grades K-3 also participated in a Chickie Trot, allowing these students to run approximately 200 to 400 yards for a similar event. This event was run by Northwood Principal Greg Johnson and Assistant Principal Eric Finke. “It’s important for students to learn the value of physical activity and setting goals for themselves,” explained Mentges. “Instead of competing against one another, students were encouraged to beat their own personal record during the race.” Many students completed the race in less than 10 minutes, meeting their goals and enjoying themselves in the process. Dannon Yogurt helped to sponsor the event, donating yogurt products for each student. “We are extremely proud of all the students who participated in the Trot,” said Mentges. “They all worked very hard. In our physical education classes, students have been learning about heart health. Students have been charting their times for the mile course and recording their resting, active and cool-down heart rates. All students made improvements.” Students also created a personal fitness plan so they can continue their aerobic workouts beyond the Turkey Trot.

Who will pay for school computers? Needed for online state testing

IN THIS Wednesday photo, Pam Bialecki works on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler at the Chrysler Toledo Assembly complex. Chrysler says it will add 1,100 jobs at the assembly complex as part of a $1.7 billion investment to build a new Jeep sport utility vehicle.

City home to Jeep sees auto industry revived BY JOHN SEEWER Associated Press

overnight,” said Ken Lortz, who’s in charge of the United Auto Workers in Ohio. “It was labor, it was management, it was government, it was everybody sitting there saying what do we need. And through that process we got tremendous investment made all over Ohio and particularly in northwest Ohio.” Ohio Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, a Democrat from Toledo who is wildly popular among auto workers, credited them for sacrificing pay and benefits and accepting lower wages for new hires in recent contracts in order to make sure the automakers didn’t leave town. “Sacrifice and partnership,” she said. “Sacrifice by all the workers. Partnership between the company, the union, the city, state and federal government. They worked together to do something no one of them could have done alone.” Chrysler worker Richard Gartee, who’s been making Jeeps for 28 years, said all sides recognized what was at stake. “It’s been a pretty big turnaround,” said Gartee, 56. “We still make a good wage, but remember we gave up a lot.” Chrysler’s assembly plant, which opened in 2001, now has about 1,800 workers and produces the Jeep Liberty and Wrangler along with the soonto-be-discontinued Dodge Nitro. The plant will begin producing a new Jeep sport utility in 2013 to replace the Liberty. But expectations are that it

TOLEDO (AP) — This town that has been churning out Jeeps since World War II, watching its fortunes rise and fall with the well-being of Detroit’s automakers, is now finding itself in an enviable position within the car industry. Chrysler and General Motors have promised in recent months to spend more than $800 million on retooling and expanding their factories here. These moves will create 1,400 jobs and keep thousands more at the three factories operated by the major automakers and at the smaller parts plants that supply them. The auto revival is raising spirits around Ohio’s fourth-largest city, where high-paying factory jobs have dwindled. Just an hour south of Detroit, the city for generations supplied the auto industry with spark plugs, transmissions and glass. But it has lost a third of its manufacturing jobs over the last decade and unemployment now hovers above 10 percent, just above the state average. That’s why Toledo Mayor Mike Bell called Chrysler Group LLC’s decision announced Wednesday — to add 1,100 jobs and make its assembly plant a key part of its future — “the equivalent of a blood transfusion for our city.” It’s safe to say these deals would have been hard to pull off without cooperation among the major players. “This didn’t happen

won’t be the only new model coming to Toledo. Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said last week there will be a new vehicle to replace the Nitro and hinted that other vehicles could be built on the same assembly line. He also said there’s a chance of expanding Wrangler production if its sales increase overseas. “This plant has been at the heart of what we’ve done,” he said, adding that the latest expansion “reinforces the special relationship between Chrysler and the city of Toledo.”

DAYTON (AP) — Every school district in Ohio will be using new online state testing to replace pencil-andpaper versions, but some schools are unsure how the new computers and needed software will be funded. The online testing will reflect the Common Core curriculum being adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia, the Dayton Daily News reported ( ). The tests are expected to be in place for the 2014-15 school year. The curriculum is designed to replace standards that often varied state-to-state. The computer tests will be a major change from how things have been traditionally done in Ohio. Rather than fill in bubbles on a multiple choice test or write answers in a blue book or on loose leaf, students will sit in front of computer screens several times a year answering questions online. Some questions will include video. It’s unclear how much the transition to computerized testing will cost the state or school districts. The districts must have enough computers to allow a large number of students to take multiple tests. That has some cash-strapped districts worried. “We have lots of concerns but not answers,” Kettering Superintendent Jim Schoenlein told the newspaper. He

said the state could choose to pick up the cost, or pass it on to districts. “I surely hope that if they are going to mandate statewide testing that they pick up the financial responsibility for that, but that’s surely no guarantee.” If the state decides to pass on the cost to local districts, taxpayers would have to foot the bill. While Ohio has federal Race to the Top money to develop standards and testing, it is uncertain how much of that will be used to help districts get the technology they need to administer the new tests, Ohio Department of Education spokesman Dennis Evans said. “How things are implemented and what resources there are, that’s a conversation that is still ongoing,” Evans said. Some schools welcome the new testing. “I think online testing is the way to go,” said Huber Heights Superintendent William Kirby, who added that his district will be ready when testing rolls out. “(Teachers) are able to use those results much more quickly in adjusting their instruction.” ___ Information from: Dayton Daily N e w s ,

Violence up in Beirut BEIRUT (AP) — Rocket-propelled grenades struck the headquarters of Syria’s ruling party Sunday, bringing the violence that has engulfed much of the country to the heart of its capital for the first time, activists said. The attack on the building in Syria’s capital of Damascus apparently caused no damage or casualties. But if true, it would mark a significant shift in the eight-month uprising against President Bashar Assad. Until now, the capital has remained relatively untouched. The pre-dawn attack awoke many Syrians who reported hearing two loud blasts, but details could not be confirmed. The foreign minister denied an attack had taken place, and Syrian television broadcast footage of the building looking undamaged.

GOP race unsettled ANAMOSA, Iowa (AP) — The race for the Republican presidential nomination is deeply unsettled with an anything-canhappen feel six weeks before Iowans start the state-by-state process of choosing a GOP challenger for President Barack Obama. Hoping to sway the many voters who are still undecided, most of the contenders visited the state in the past week and the pace of campaigning is certain to accelerate after Thanksgiving, when the monthlong sprint to the Jan. 3 caucuses begins. A crush of new TV ads is certain. Expect mailboxes filled with brochures and repeated visits by candidates to diners, town squares and other must-stop venues.

Fewer cops, more crime? CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Police in five New Jersey cities where departments have had deep layoffs are making fewer arrests for minor offenses — a trend that experts fear could lead to a rise in the most serious crimes. Newark, Trenton, Paterson, Atlantic City and Camden, all densely populated cities with significant crime problems — all faced with precarious tax revenue and declining aid from a state government that is also cash-strapped — have all made deep cuts in their police departments since the start of 2010.

OUT OF THE BLUE More cats than inmates at prison BELLE GLADE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say dozens of cats that sneaked into a South Florida prison will be found new homes before the facility closes next month. As many as 80 cats have burrowed under fences and taken up residence at the state-run prison in Belle Glade. Prisoners have been feeding the animals, even though rules prohibit that. The 1,000-inmate prison closes Dec. 1. Officials tell The Palm Beach Post that as of Monday, there are more cats than prisoners at the facility. Just 69 inmates remain awaiting transfers. Palm Beach County animal control officers are removing the cats so they won’t starve when the prison closes. They’re offering to waive adoption fees to find them new homes.

Police burn protest tents to clear Cairo’s Tahrir BY SARAH EL DEEB Associated Press CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian soldiers and police set fire to protest tents in Cairo’s Tahrir Square and fired tear gas and rubber bullets in a major assault Sunday to drive out thousands demanding that the military rulers quickly transfer power to a civilian government. At least seven protesters were killed and hundreds were injured. It was the second day of clashes marking a sharp escalation of tensions on Egypt’s streets a week before the first elections since the ouster of longtime authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak in February. The military took over the country, promising a swift transition to civilian rule. But the prodemocracy protesters who led the uprising have grown increasingly angry with the ruling generals, and suspect they are trying to cling to power even after an elected parliament is seated and a new president is voted in. The military-backed Cabinet said in a statement that elections set to begin on Nov. 28 would take place on time and thanked the police for their “restraint,” language that is likely to enrage the protesters even more. “We’re not going anywhere,” protester Mohammed Radwan said after security forces tried unsuccessfully to push the crowds out of Tahrir, the epicenter of the uprising. “The

Gadhafi son to be tried at home BY RAMI AL-SHAHEIBI Associated Press ZINTAN, Libya (AP) — Libya’s new leaders said Sunday they will try Moammar Gadhafi’s son at home and not hand him over to the International Criminal Court where he’s charged with crimes against humanity. The government also announced the capture of the toppled regime’s intelligence minister, who is also wanted by the court. In one of several emerging complications, however, the former rebel faction that captured Seif al-Islam Gadhafi a day earlier is refusing to deliver him to national authorities in Tripoli, raising concern over whether he will get a proper trial and demonstrating the interim leaders’ weak hold over their fractured nation. In the capital, Information Minister Mahmoud Shammam said ex-Intelligence Minister Abdullah alSenoussi was captured alive on Sunday by revolutionary fighters from a southern region called Fazan, not far from where Gadhafi’s son was seized on Saturday while trying to flee to neighboring Niger. Fighters tracking alSenoussi for two days caught up with him at his sister’s house in Deerat al-Shati, about 40 miles (70 kilometers) south of the desert city of Sebha, said fighter Abdullah al-Sughayer. There were few other immediate details on his capture, and it was not clear whether his captors would also resist turning him over to Tripoli. Though they are wanted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, Libya will likely seek to try both men at home. Speaking earlier in the day, before al-Senoussi’s capture, the information minister said Seif al-Islam, the ousted Libyan leader’s one-time heir apparent, must be tried in Libya even though the country’s new leaders have yet to establish a court system.

IN THIS image made from video, a police officer uses pepper spray as he walks down a line of Occupy demonstrators sitting on the ground at the University of California, Davis on Friday. The video — posted on YouTube — was shot as police moved in on more than a dozen tents erected on campus and arrested 10 people, nine of them students.

Officers in pepper spray incident placed on leave BY JASON DEAREN Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A California university placed two of its police officers on administrative leave Sunday because of their involvement in the pepper spraying of passively sitting protesters, while the school’s chancellor accelerated a task force’s investigation into the incident amid calls for her resignation. The president of the 10-campus University of California system also weighed in on the growing fallout from Friday’s incident at UC Davis, saying that he is “appalled” at images of students being doused with pepper spray and plans a far-reaching, urgent assessment of law enforcement procedures on all campuses. “I implore students who wish to demonstrate to do so in a peaceful and lawful fashion. I expect campus authorities to honor that right,” UC President Mark G. Yudof said. All 10 chancellors would convene soon for a discussion “about how to ensure proportional law enforcement response to non-violent protest,” he said. Officials at UC Davis refused to identify the two officers who were place on administrative leave but one was a veteran of many years on the force and other “fairly new” to the department, the school’s Police Chief Annette Spicuzza told The Associated Press. She would not elaborate further because of the pending probe. Videos posted online of the incident clearly show one riot-gear clad officer dousing the line of protesters with spray as they sit in a line with their arms intertwined. Spicuzza told the

AP that the second officer was identified during an intense review of several videos. “We really wanted to be diligent in our research, and during our viewing of multiple videos we discovered the second officer,” Spicuzza said. “This is the right thing to do.” Both officers were trained in the use of pepper spray as department policy dictates, and both had been sprayed with it themselves during training, the chief noted. Meanwhile, UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi said she has been inundated with reaction from alumni, students and faculty. “I spoke with students this weekend and I feel their outrage,” Katehi said in a statement Sunday. Katehi also set a 30-day deadline for her school’s task force investigating the incident to issue its report. The task force, comprised of students, staff and faculty, will be chosen this week. She earlier had set a 90-day timetable. She also plans to meet with demonstrators Monday at their general assembly, said her spokeswoman, Claudia Morain. On Saturday, the UC Davis faculty association called for Katehi’s resignation, saying in a letter there had been a “gross failure of leadership.” Katehi has resisted calls for her to quit. “I am deeply saddened that this happened on our campus, and as chancellor, I take full responsibility for the incident,” Katehi said Sunday. “However, I pledge to take the actions needed to ensure that this does not happen again. I feel very sorry for the harm our students were subjected to and I vow to work tirelessly to make the campus a more welcoming and safe place.”

I Heloise Cruse w a s born and raised in Honolulu, but now have been living on the Mainland for many decades (my wife and I got married and bid “Aloha” to the islands in 1964). During the summers of 1960 and 1961, while a student at the University of Hawaii, I worked for The Honolulu Advertiser, first as an office boy and then as a temporary payroll bookkeeper. One day during my second summer, I noticed this seemingly energetic haole woman scurrying along the hallway. An adjacent co-worker told me that she was Heloise, who wrote a column for the newspaper. What I noticed most about Heloise was the color of her hair. But time has faded the exact color from my memory. Was it pink, orange or green? Or all of the above at different times? Aloha! — George Arita, Oak View, Calif. George! Aloha, Thanks so much for sharing your memory of my mother, the original Heloise (1919-1977). She did like to spray her hair to match her outfit. When she first started this column, more than 50 years ago, she colored her hair silver so she would look older and wiser! But as the years went on, green, sapphire blue and orchid were her favorites. So, it doesn’t surprise me, because you could have seen her with any of the above colors. I can remember her with purple hair! Visit to see her. Thanks for your letter — you made me smile. — Heloise

The New Life Center has five core programs: women’s centers, prenatal care; in school youth development; education marriage programs; and after abortion support. There are six women’s centers, one of which is in Sidney at 2579 Michigan St. Women’s Center Sidney has been in exis-

tence, in one form or another, since 1983, O’Leary told the group. The forerunner was the Problem Pregnancy Center which was started by Henry Cordonnier, Ken Knapke and Mike Gilardi. In 2006, the Women’s Center Sidney merged with Elizabeth’s New Life Center. It has four paid staff and 15 volunteers. The main focus of the center is to serve pregnant women facing unexpected pregnancies. The mission is to empower individuals to make healthy life choices respecting the value of each person created by God. In 2010, O’Leary said, 593 clients were served by the Sidney office. More than 600 pregnancy tests and 194 ultrasounds were

administered. Almost 87 percent of abortionminded women changed their minds, resulting in 163 babies saved. President Heather Pollard presided over the business meeting. The invocation was given by Ken Smith and the group was lead in song by Ralph Bornhorst, accompanied by DiAnne Karas on the piano. Rick Lunsford led the activities which involved answering various trivia questions regarding the military. The club’s annual spaghetti dinner will

Elementary school students at Hardin-Houston Local School launched balloons during Red Ribbon Week recently. Attached to each ballon was a student’s pledge to live a drug-free, healthy life. The last time Hardin students did this, balloons were found as far away as Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Canada. For photo reprints, visit

DeGraff native inducted into broadcasters hall of fame commented that she possessed a remarkable professional maturity.

Ed Johnson of Delaware, founder of ABN Radio, of which Hill became owner, and mentor to Hill, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005 following his death in 2001. At the conclusion of the banquet, Hill’s parents, Lowell and Donna Hill, of DeGraff, were presented with a multipaned window from the barn of her grandparents’ rural DeGraff home where she resided. The window was used to handcraft frames featuring her photographs, artist renderings of scenes of the DeGraff

farmstead, and her favorite Bible verse from Philippians. The NAFB logo and the gavel she had received when named NAFB president accented the frame. Also in attendance were Hill’s brother and sister-in-law, Lance and

A DeGraff native was honored during the National Association of Farm Broadcasters’ (NAFB) 68th annual convention Nov. 9-11 n i Hill Kansas City, Mo. During the President’s Banquet on Nov. 11, DeGraff native Lindsay Hill was inducted into the NAFB Hall of Fame. Hill was killed in a rural Ohio auto accident on May 19. Hill had just recently joined the AgDay and U.S. Farm Report television broadcast team in March as agribusiness director, after serving as a broadcaster and owner of ABN Radio Network in Ohio. Hill, 31, was honored numerous times for her professional achievements, and was serving as the current president of the National Association of Farm Broadcasters. NAFB members came together Nov. 11 to celebrate Hill’s accomplishments, voice their respect for her leadership and relate stories of their professional experiences and personal relationships with Hill. A video of Hill’s life was narrated by Clinton Griffiths, current managing editor at AgDay Farm Journal Television in South Bend, Ind., who was also Hill’s farm news co-anchor at the station. Additionally, the audience viewed taped remarks by Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, who had met with a delegation from NAFB, and participated in a discussion facilitated by Hill on May 2 in Vilsack’s Washington, D.C., office. Vilsack recalled Hill’s expertise on current agricultural issues and

tural groups. Projects must be planned and operated with the help of the organization adviser, produce sufficient income to repay the loan and provide the youth with practical business and educational experience.

BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2011 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) During the next six weeks, grab every opportunity that comes your way, to travel or go someplace new and different. You want to broaden your horizons and learn more! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The month ahead is the time to clean up loose ends about inheritances, insurance matters and shared property. You will get a lot done with surprising ease. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Old friends and ex-partners are back in your life again. Also, be aware that in the month ahead, you need to get more sleep than usual. (Oh dear.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your efficiency at work will be hampered by delays, missed paperwork, canceled appointments and mild confusion. Just grin and bear it for the next few weeks! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Old flames might be back on the scene again. The month ahead is a wonderful time for vacations, parties, creative efforts, sports and playful activities with children. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) For the next six weeks, work to make everything at home flow smoothly. Stock the fridge, because company is coming! LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Stay on top of potential car repairs because transportation delays are likely in the month ahead. In fact, allow extra time for everything you do. BY FRANCIS DRAKE What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2011 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is an amazingly productive day at work. You can practically move mountains. Do whatever you can to introduce reforms and improvements to both your job and your health. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a powerful day for those of you in the performing arts and for those who work with children. You see new ways of accomplishing your goals. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Tackle repair problems related to laundry areas, plumbing and bathrooms. Improve your garbage situation and how you recycle. (It’s a perfect day for this.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You are unusually persuasive today! Now is the time to make your case and influence people to agree with you — if this is what you want to achieve. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might see new ways of earning money today. You also might see new applications or uses for something you already own. Clever you! VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Give some serious thought to what you can do to improve your appearance, your image and even your health. Take a realistic look in the mirror. Any ideas? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your ability to research and find answers to old problems is fabulous today. You will be relentless in going after what you need to discover. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The next several weeks are a poor time to initiate new business deals. However, they are an excellent time to wrap up old business and finish whatever is already on your plate. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Today the Sun moves into your sign, where it stays for the next month, bringing you lots of energy. This means it’s your turn to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Work alone or behind the scenes in the next month, as you ponder what you want your new year to be all about. If you define your goals, they will more than likely materialize. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Old friends are back. Many of you will be involved with clubs, groups and organizations more than usual. Whatever happens causes you to rethink your goals. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Whether dealing with old bosses or seeing parents again (after a period of absence), you are dealing with authority figures from your past. This might cause you to rethink your life direction in general. YOU BORN TODAY You’re individualistic! You march to the beat of your own drum. Personal freedom is a survival issue for you, which is why you care little what others think about you. This gives you a fresh, carefree quality that is intriguing. You’re a nurturing parent if given the opportunity. In the year ahead, your partnerships and close friendships will be of primary importance. Birthdate of: Billie Jean King, tennis champ; Scarlett Johansson, actress; Mark Ruffalo, actor. You might meet someone unusually powerful today. Quite likely, this person will lead you to change your goals for the future. Possibly, you are the strong person in a group in the eyes of others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Because you are so ambitious today, people will listen to you. In particular, you seem to be keen to introduce reforms and improvements. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Go after opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education today. Your enthusiasm will ensure your success. (It’s a good day to make travel plans as well.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You will come up a winner in discussions about shared property, inheritances and insurance matters. Don’t be afraid to stand your ground, especially about old issues. This is a good time to wrap up old business. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Difficulties with partners and close friends might arise today; however, cooperation is possible. Look for win-win solution with someone. Both parties are keen to improve what now seems to be a stalemate. YOU BORN TODAY Because you’re free-spirited and freedom-loving, your motto is live and let live. You never run from a fight, but you can avoid one with your clever wit. Despite your early lifestyle, you hunger for a solid family base. In your later years, you enjoy exploring spirituality and human-consciousness movements. In the year ahead, an important choice awaits you. Choose wisely. Birthdate of: Bruce Hornsby, singer/musician; Jennifer Michael Hecht, poet/historian; Miley Cyrus, singer/actress.

DAYTON (AP) — A new study shows that more than one in four Ohioans smoke cigarettes — one of the highest rates in the nation. The Dayton Daily News reports ( ) that about 26 percent of Ohioans smoked cigarettes in 2011, matching the rates of Missouri, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas. The information comes from a recent study by the GallupHealthways Well-Being Index. Kentucky was the only state with a higher smoking rate, with 29 percent of residents lighting up. Ohio is the only state with a comprehensive smoking ban and a rate above 25 percent. Officials with the Ohio Health Department say

their own survey found that 22.5 percent of Ohioans smoked in 2010. They say smoking is a

huge health concern and the percent of smokers in the state is not decreasing.

Currently I use salicylic acid cream and have used it for more than a year with no results. — J.L. ANSWER: Tan, brown and, less often, black, raised, circular spots of skin, about an inch in diameter (3 cm) with a warty surface are seborrheic keratoses. They look like they’ve been glued to the skin. They pop up on the back, chest, arms, legs, neck, face and scalp. Their numbers range from a few to hundreds. Their cause is unknown. Seborrheic keratoses

are not skin cancers. They most often don’t hurt or itch. They are unsightly. Even though you have many, a doctor can scrape them off with a special instrument or freeze them with liquid nitrogen. The treatment can be done in stages. A bountiful crop will take time to remove. How to stop their spread? I’m sorry to say that no one has come up with a good way of doing so. As an aside, the sudden appearance of many keratoses might be an indication of a hidden cancer. If it comforts you, I have them too.

Wife wants to wash her man right out of holiday kitchen DEAR ABBY: What is a wife to do? My husband occasionally pitches in to help me prepare holiday meals. He prides himself on his dishwashing Dear skills, but when Abby he’s done I have Abigail to rewash most of Van Buren the pots and pans because he doesn’t check his work. If I ask him to redo them, he reacts as though it’s a criticism and has an over-the-top fit. At times like Thanksgiving I’m stressed out cooking for the family

and would love his help, but it’s more trouble than it’s worth. Discussing it with him hasn’t been successful, and friends have told me they have the same problem. Can you provide a strategy that can keep us humming along happily with our husbands in the kitchen? — DREADING THANKSGIVING IN L.A. DEAR DREADING: Perhaps you should soak the pots and pans immediately after you’re done cooking, so when the meal is done your husband will have an easier job of washing them. If any food is still hard to remove, offer to help him by filling the utensils with water and placing them on the stove; let them boil a while, and then wash them again with detergent and a brush. That should

solve your problem. DEAR ABBY: I have wanted a baby for a long time. Now that I’m 31, my desire is growing stronger. My boyfriend of 11 years, “Chad,” is 35. His daughter lives with us and I have raised her like she was mine. Chad and I discussed having a baby and even went to a fertility clinic to make sure we’re healthy and would have no complications trying to conceive. Now, almost a year later and still no baby, he says he has a successful business, loves his life and doesn’t want any more kids! “Maybe down the road” he “might” change his mind. I hate him for this. I had two abortions for him five years into our relationship because he felt

we weren’t ready. He was starting his business and I was still in my last year of college. Abby, please help me. I am furious with him, and I’m starting to pull away from him and his daughter. — CHEATED IN NEW YORK DEAR CHEATED: I’m sorry, but your signature indicates you have a firm grasp of your situation. It appears you will never have what you want if you stay with Chad, so pack your bags and get on with your life. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

HeALthy Is Cool!

Graphic Designer: Scarlett Smith

Fitness Pledge As a family, create a weekly exercise plan by brainstorming and making a list of physical activities that everyone will enjoy. Coordinate your schedules to block out an hour each day and track your progress throughout the week.

Part 2 - Continued Hey Kids! We want you to take part in our “Healthy Is Cool” program this year. Fill out the pledge and mail to: Dana Wolfe (NIE Coordinator), 224 S. Market St., Troy, OH 45373. You’ll be entered to win great prizes in our fitness pledge program! Deadline for entry forms is May 2, 2012.

Family discussion: Once you’ve completed the first week of your new fitness plan, have a family meeting. How did things go? What worked? What didn’t? What changes need to be made, and what should stay the same for the next week? What new activities should be added?

Yoga for the younger generation Yoga Is For Everybody Yoga is a Hindu discipline of exercises practiced to promote control of the body and aimed at training the consciousness for a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquility. Yoga is not a religion. Yoga is a philosophy of life. Yoga is for everybody. Everyone can do yoga, but most think of it as twisting the body into knots. Yoga is a safe, effective way to achieve overall fitness for everyone. Benefits of Yoga The more you practice yoga, the more benefits you will notice. Breathing techniques improve oxygen intake, making the lungs more efficient. Stretching lengthens the muscles increasing flexibility. The poses use body weight to strengthen and tone the muscles. The breathing and flow of the poses brings about a calmer and clearer mind, which reduces stress. While in the poses, concentration on body positioning, helps with improved posture on and off the yoga mat. The contemplative mind-body connection lessens the chance of injury, whether that can be in athletics or everyday activities. Overall Fitness A metabolic exchange occurs during physical activity when the breathing pattern comes into play. Yoga’s rhythm of inhaling and exhaling during physical activity brings oxygen to the muscles for better performance. Some exercise programs concentrate on muscle bulk in specific areas of the body, while yoga offsets the unevenness by offering a complete and balanced mind-body workout for all muscle groups. Yoga also helps with the mental game through mindfulness and meditation.

As a family, we promise to take care of our bodies by working together to: • Get 60 minutes of daily exercise • Limit our sugar intake and avoid products that include high-fructose corn syrup (drinks, candy, snacks) • Drink more water (8-10 glasses each day) • Eat more fresh vegetables and fruits • Limit screen time by turning off the TV, computer and gaming systems • Praise one another for a job well done • Track our progress Being active is good for the entire family! To help you and your family commit to being healthy and fit, complete and sign the health pledge below. Once it’s complete, send to: Dana Wolfe (NIE Coordinator), 224 S. Market St., Troy, OH 45373.

HeALthy Is Cool! The Brain & Nervous System The brain manages your body and controls almost everything you do, even when you are asleep. It runs the nervous system (along with spinal cord and nerves) and connects the inside of your body to the outside world. How many jobs does your brain have? • It controls your breathing, heart rate, body temperature and blood pressure. • It handles your body’s movement (telling your muscles when and how to move) and controls balance and coordination (how your muscles work together). • It receives information from your senses and stores it in your memory bank (seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching). • It lets you feel emotions, talk, think, remember and dream. Your brain gives your body the power to be a super kid. Without it, you couldn’t walk, run, ride a bike, skateboard, dribble a basketball, swim or learn. You need your brain to be active and strong, so make sure you and your family: • Eat healthy and nutritions

Did You Know? • The spinal cord is a long bundle of nerve tissue about 18 inches long and 3/4 inch thick. • The human brain, considering everything it does, is incredibly compact weighing just 3 pounds. • At birth, the nervous system contains all the neurons you will ever have. • Olfactory cells in the mucous membranes lining each nostril react to chemicals we breathe in and send messages along specific nerves to the brain — which, according to experts, can distinguish between more than 10,000 different smells. • When you are doing a math problem, you’re using the left side of your brain; when you are listening to music, you’re using the right side.

If you ride a bike or play sports, your are at the top of the risk list for head injuries. Falls are the most common cause of playground head injuries, more than bikes and auto accidents combined. To protect your head, make sure you click your seat belt in the car, wear your helmet when riding your bike, and be safe when playing sports and climbing on the jungle gym at school or the park.

TONY STEWART celebrates after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race and clinching the series championship, at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Fla., Sunday.

Stewart wins Cup crown HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) — Tony Stewart insisted he wasn't a title contender when NASCAR's championship race began. When it became clear he actually was a viable threat, he kicked it into another gear and vowed to go for broke in his pursuit of Carl Edwards. Did he ever. Stewart used a powerful and relentless drive — some might suggest the best in NASCAR history — on Sunday in the season finale to seize his third NASCAR championship. He overcame a hole in the grill of his Chevrolet, a rain delay, used debatable fuel strategy and made 116 passes on the track to win at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Edwards led the most laps — 119 of the 267 — but finished a helpless second. The two ended up tied in the final Sprint Cup points standings, but Stewart's five victories — all in the chase — to Edwards' one gave him the championship. Stewart became the first owner/driver to win the championship since the late Alan Kulwicki in 1992, and the driver to end Jimmie Johnson's record five-year title run. “Are you kidding me?” Stewart asked in Victory Lane. “We said all week we'd just go out and win the race and didn't have to worry about what he did. If this doesn't go down as one of the greatest championship battles in history, I don't know what will.” If this doesn't go down as one of the greatest championship battles in history, I don't know what is.” Edwards was disappointed but held his head high after the race. “This night is about Tony Stewart. Those guys rose to the occasion and they beat us fair and square,” Edwards said. “That is all I had. We came here and sat on the pole, led the most laps and Tony still managed. That's it. That's all I got at the end. That's as hard as I can drive. “I told my wife, 'If I can't win this thing, I'm going to be the best loser NASCAR has ever had.' So, I'm going to try really hard to keep my head up and know that we'll just go next year and we'll be just as hard to beat.”

WAPAKONETA — The Marion Local Flyers and Minster Wildcats entered Saturday night looking forward to their Midwest Athletic Conference rematch against each other. For the Wildcats, it was an opportunity to avenge their 26-17 regular-season loss to the Flyers. As for the Flyers, it was an opportunity to knock the Wildcats out of the playoffs, just as Minster had done to them last season. Marion stifled the Wildcats the entire game on their way to a 28-0 win. With the victory, the Flyers are set to play MAC foe Delphos St. John’s in the Division VI state semifinal game. The rematch of the conference foes will take place Saturday at Wapakoneta at 7 p.m. The first play of the game gave a woeful feeling to the Flyers as sophomore quarter Adam Bertke was intercepted by Minster’s Korey Schultz. This put the Wildcats deep in Flyer territory. But after a stalled drive, the Cats gave the ball away on downs. The teams continued to swap possessions for the remainder of the first quarter which ended 0-0. With its offense being able to find a rhythm, Marion charged its way downfield early in the second quarter. Soon enough, Marion senior running back Jake Heitkamp found his way to the endzone as he hurried around the left side for a 4-yard touchdown run for a 7-0 lead with 10:46

The two teams would swap possessions again. Soon, Marion found itself with the ball for another opportunity to extend its lead. On a drive set up by big passes from Bertke, the Flyers were on the 4-yard line again. Just like the last time, Heitkamp’s number was called. Going around the left side again, Heitkamp was able to grind his way to the endzone while bouncing off Minster defenders unable to bring him down. With the extra point, the Flyers were up 14-0 with

3:43 left in the second quarter. Marion got the ball back with under twominyutes to go in the half, and mounted backbreaking scoring a drive. Bertke was able to find receiver Lee Pierron downfield several times. With this, the Flyer offense was rolling on all cylinders. The last drive of the first half seemed like it was going to end with Marion having the ball on the 35-yard line of Minster. Instead, Flyer receiver Kellen Goettemoeller had another idea as he hauled

in a touchdown pass from Bertke on the final play of the half. Pierron booted the extra point through the uprights and helped extend his team’s lead to 21-0. From the first snap of the third quarter, Minster’s offense looked new and refreshed. To begin the drive, junior quarterback Adam Niemeyer found Poeppelman near the left sideline. After that, Niemeyer continued finding open receivers downfield. See FLYERS/Page 19

Mistakes cost Bucks 20-14 BY JIM NAVEAU COLUMBUS — There is no textbook that tells how to survive a season like Ohio State’s football team has gone through this fall. There are just individual chapters, written on the fly, the latest of which was the Buckeyes’ 20-14 loss to Penn State on Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Penn State (9-2, 6-1 Big Ten) jumped out to a 10-point lead in the game’s first 10 minutes and OSU never caught up. It was the fourth straight game Ohio State has fallen behind early and the seventh time overall this season that it had to try to play catch-up from an early deficit. This latest chapter looked a lot like some of the earlier ones. Ohio State (6-5, 3-4 Big Ten) faced adversity, battled hard, but in the end was done in by the other team being just a little better and by its own mistakes. Stephfon Green rushed for 93 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead Penn State to its first victory in the post-Joe Paterno Era. With a win at Wisconsin this Saturday, Penn State would win the Big Ten’s Leaders Division and advance to the Big Ten’s first conference championship game. But if the Badgers win, they’ll go to the championship game. Freshman quarterback Braxton Miller rushed for 105 yards on 18 carries and had a hand in both Ohio State touchdowns. He rushed 24 yards for a TD in the second quarter, then hit tight end Jake Stoneburner with a 7yard pass for the Buckeyes’ other score. Ohio State got the last available piece of the puzzle back on Saturday when senior wide receiver DeVier Posey (4 catches, 66 yards) played for

OHIO STATE receiver DeVier Posey, left, is pursued by Penn State defensive back D'Anton Lynn after a making a pass reception in the first half of an NCAA college football game on Saturday in Columbus. the first time this season after serving a 10-game suspension. But even that wasn’t enough to push OSU over the top against a Penn State team dealing with even more adversity than the Buckeyes have faced this season. Defenses were expected to dominate and they did in the second half. All the scoring came in the first two quarters. Two weeks ago, Ohio State still had hopes of winning the Leaders Division and playing for the Big Ten title and a trip

to the Rose Bowl. Now after back-to-back losses to Purdue and Penn State, it must focus on its trip to Michigan this Saturday and trying to play its way into a bowl that is not too far from the bright lights of the bowls it has become accustomed to in the last decade. Center Mike Brewster says it is possible the constant battles against adversity have taken a toll on the Buckeyes in recent games. “You want to say, ‘No,’ but I’m sure at some point (it does). At the end of the day,

we’re college kids and we’ve been through so much,” Brewster said. “That’s not an excuse but it is a fact. “It’s amazing how this team has stuck together through everything and that’s what I’ll remember most abougt this team – staying together like we have.” Probably the Buckeyes’ finest hour was a goal line stand in the third quarter when Penn State had a firstdown at OSU’s two-yard line.

CLEVELAND BROWNS defensive tackle Phillip Taylor (98) celebrates as time runs out in the Browns’ 14-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in an NFL football game Sunday in Cleveland.

Browns edge Jaguars 14-10 didn’t disappoint. “I did trust that we would get them stopped,” Shurmur said. “I trust our defense.” The Browns appeared in control when Dawson booted his 38-yarder toward the goal post. However, the officials standing directly under the uprights ruled the high kick went wide right. Dawson argued that his kick should have counted, but referee Terry McAulay announced the attempt could not be reviewed because it sailed above the post. “The way we saw it was part of the ball was outside of the outside edge of the upright,” said McAulay, whose crew had a few other tough calls to make. Gabbert then drove the Jaguars down the field and Jacksonville caught a break when Browns cornerback Joe Haden was called for interference in the final minute on third down. Maurice Jones-Drew was stopped twice inside the 5, and the Browns were fortunate when Gabbert’s pass on second-and-goal went off wide receiver Jason Hill’s chest in the back corner of the end zone with 3 seconds left. Haden believed he got a hand on Gabbert’s throw. That set up a dramatic finale, and this one went Cleveland’s way, giving the Browns a muchneeded win before their schedule gets rougher. Jackson said he was ready for the pass. “I anticipated the play and that’s a tough route to cover because he’s kind of going away,” Jackson said. “He came into my zone and I went with him. His arms went up, I saw that. I put my arms up. He didn’t catch it, that’s all I know and all that matters.” Del Rio was asked why he didn’t hand the ball to Jones-Drew on the last play. “You can make a case for doing that,” Del Rio said. “You can guess any number of plays when you don’t connect. We had two guys with the ball in the air in the vicinity — missed opportunities.” McCoy completed 17 of 24 passes for 199 yards. And while his numbers were efficient, the second-year QB again showed he’s a gamer by staying in despite hurting his right shoulder.

CINCINNATI BENGALS defensive back Adam Jones (24) pulls on Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith’s hair as Smith rushes the ball in the first half of an NFL football game in Baltimore Sunday. who was called for intentional grounding. On fourth-and-goal, Dalton was sacked by Pernell McPhee. The Bengals (6-4) needed seven points because on the previous series, an apparent 9-yard touchdown pass from Dalton to Jermaine Gresham was overturned by a replay that determined the receiver didn’t hold onto the ball at the end of a juggling catch. The Bengals settled for a field goal with 5:32 remaining. “When the receiver went to the ground, he had the ball in his right hand,” referee Ron Winter said. “The ball touched the ground and his hand came off the ball.” Baltimore is locked in a first-place tie with

Pittsburgh in the AFC North, but the Ravens own the tiebreaker by virtue of their two wins over the Steelers. “No. 1 in the division, that’s huge,” Suggs said. “Now we’re the master of our destiny.” Even though it wasn’t a banner day for the defense, the three interceptions set up two touchdowns. “Whenever we can get turnovers, it definitely makes everybody’s job easier,” cornerback Cary Williams said. “It’s just being able to capitalize on opportunities, and we did that today.” Dalton went 24 for 45 a touchdown. with Cincinnati was without standout rookie wide receiver A.J. Green, who hurt his right knee a week earlier in a loss to

Pittsburgh. But the Bengals gave Baltimore all it could handle. “We’ve won six games to this point and we’ll win some more,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “We’ve just got to circle the wagons, lick our wounds and go.” One week earlier, the Bengals came up short in rallying from a 14-0 deficit against Pittsburgh. It was more of the same against the Ravens. “It comes down to the fourth quarter. That’s how every game’s been for us,” Dalton said. “We’ve got to start faster. We can’t wait around until the end of the game to pick it up, come out and get back in it. It’s definitely going to be a focus for us.”

FLYERS From Page 18 But as the Wildcats approached the red zone, the tide began to turn as Flyer penalties slowed down Minster’s momentum and the Cats turned the ball over on downs. For the remainder of the third quarter, Marion had possession of the ball as they drove downfield and eventually ran out the clock to hold their 21-0 lead going into the fourth quarter. Shortly into the fourth quarter, Marion’s Bertke scrambled through the Minster defense while shedding numerous tackles, thus finding his way to the endzone. After another Pierron kick, the Flyers held a 28-0 lead with 11:13 left in the game, which would be the final score. “You have to give them all the credit in the world,” said Moore. “That’s a great football team, and they just outplayed us today.” Score by quarter: Marion...........0 21 0 7— 28 Minster..........0 0 0 0— 0 Scoring summary: ML – Heitkamp, 4yard run (Pierron Kick) ML – Heitkamp, 4yard run (Pierron Kick) ML – Goettemoeller, K., 35-yard pass from Bertke (Pierron Kick) ML – Bertke, 10-yard run (Pierron Kick)

CLEVELAND (AP) — Colt McCoy took a knee on Cleveland’s sideline, closed his eyes and the young quarterback asked for some help from above. This week, the Browns got it. “There’s nothing wrong with praying,” McCoy said. Jacksonville rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert’s pass into the end zone on the game’s last play was incomplete, allowing the Browns to escape with a 14-10 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. As McCoy watched helplessly, Gabbert rifled a 3-yard pass high over the middle that was off the mark and caromed off wide receiver Mike Thomas’ outstretched hands, and the Browns (4-6) celebrated a win they nearly gave away. “We deserved this one,” McCoy said. “Our team deserved this.” week, the Last Browns lost 13-12 to the St. Louis Rams when Cleveland botched a snap and reliable kicker Phil Dawson missed a 22-yard field goal try. This one nearly ended under similar circumstances as Jacksonville’s final drive was set up by Dawson missing a 38yarder that sailed over the top of the right post. “Everybody played their hearts out and it’s about time it went our way,” said Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson, who covered Thomas tightly on the final play. “We knew it was up to us. Right there. We had to make the play and we did.” McCoy shook off an apparent shoulder injury and threw a 3-yard TD pass to Josh Cribbs in the fourth to give Cleveland a 14-10 lead. But Dawson’s stunning miss with 2:49 left gave the Jaguars (3-7) a final chance and Gabbert, who had some good and bad moments, nearly pulled off the comeback. “It’s not the ending we were looking for,” said Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio, who defended his use of the clock in the final minute. “It’s not the first time this year we’ve had the opportunity. We’re really looking for that breakout, gamewinning drive. We had a chance for our quarterback to take us down. He took us down. We were knocking on the door. We just couldn’t close it out.” Chris Ogbonnaya rushed for 115 yards and scored on a 1-yard run for Cleveland, ending a TD drought at home that lasted more than 158 minutes. The Browns had scoring drives of 87 and 85 yards, rarities in the offense’s first season under coach Pat Shurmur. But Shurmur knows he can count on his defense, and the Browns’

BALTIMORE (AP) — An uncharacteristic performance by the Baltimore Ravens defense was offset by an uncommonly effective outing by Joe Flacco and the team’s oft-criticized offense. Flacco threw for 270 yards and two touchdowns, rookie Torrey Smith had six catches for 165 yards, and Baltimore moved into first place in the AFC North with a nerve-racking 3124 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Playing without middle linebacker Ray Lewis for the first time in 58 games, the Ravens (7-3) nearly blew a 17-point lead in the final 14 minutes, yielded 483 yards and let rookie quarterback Andy Dalton throw for 373. But Baltimore got 104 yards rushing and two touchdowns from Ray Rice, and the defense made big plays when it counted most. After Rice was stuffed on a thirdand-1 with just over two minutes left, he remained confident. “I just looked at the clock and I said, ‘Our defense will get it done,’” he recalled. “That’s the faith I have in our guys.” Even without Lewis, who watched from the sideline after being placed on the inactive list with a toe injury. The Ravens’ spiritual leader and leading tackler saw his unit pick off three passes and turn in a game-saving goal-line stand in the final minute. Down 31-24, Cincinnati reached the Baltimore 7 before Terrell Suggs collared Dalton,
