Rail spur project approved Near Amasa mill By NIKKI YOUNK Staff Writer CRYSTAL FALLS — Improvement plans and revolving loan funding for a railroad spur in Hematite Township were approved Tuesday by the Iron County Board of Commissioners. According to Iron County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) Director Julie Melchiori, the spur is heavily used by the Pine River Hardwoods sawmill and Sappi Paper. However, Escanaba Lake Superior Rail has indicated that it will not continue to deliver nor pick up product on the spur in its current condition. The spur was built in the 1970s and was only intended to carry empty railcars, said Melchiori. “The Amasa mill created 40 jobs and spin-off operations,” she added. “This improvement is necessary for the survival of our projects out there.” The total cost for improving the spur is estimated at $176,850. Melchiori said that the Michigan Department of Transportation could cover up to half of the cost in the form of a five-year forgivable loan. The EDC could fund the other half of the project with money from the county’s revolving (Continued on page 3A)

...Storm knocks out power (Continued from page one) Tuesday. Numerous schools were closed and some businesses idled, including the Tilden and Empire iron mines in Marquette County. Crews in helicopters and on foot were inspecting the power lines and towers for damage while others worked to restore electricity to darkened homes. Upper Peninsula Power Co.’s 50,000 affected customers were receiving power by midafternoon, spokeswoman Lisa Prunty said. About 27,000 customers served by We Energies were back online by 8 a.m. Tuesday, said Manthey. The lightning bolt hit two lines that transmit power between Oconto Falls, Wis., and Kingsford, about 3:30 a.m., said Anne Spaltholz, spokeswoman for American Transmission Co., which owns and operates the lines. With another line in the area
down for maintenance, a large swath of the U.P. was without power, from Munising to Escanaba and west to the Keweenaw Peninsula. “Essentially we had a blackout,” Spaltholz said. With three key lines out of service, the system became unstable and triggered the shutdown of Presque Isle Power Plant in Marquette, which supplies the iron mines. They had enough power to keep the lights on in their offices but were unable to process iron ore, said Dale Hemmila, spokesman for Cliffs Natural Resources, which operates the mines. “To run these operations we average 270 megawatts on a daily basis and we’re nowhere near that right now,” Hemmila said early Tuesday afternoon. The company still didn’t have enough juice to operate Tuesday evening but was hoping to return to normal today.

The city picks up the tipping fees
and it helps to keep the neighborhoods looking better,” noted City Manager Jordan Stanchina. The city of Kingsford began its spring rubbish collection on April 27. Any pickups requested after the advertised collection dates will require payment of a minimum fee of $75. The city has a compost drop-off site for Kingsford residents open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. through the fall, and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon through Nov. 7.

Insurance tips for natural disasters Floods, tornadoes, violent storms — disasters can strike anywhere, even in Michigan. These violent events of nature have been unfolding in the news recently. We follow them closely, and wonder. Could it happen here? The answer is yes. If and when it does, we turn to insurance coverage for relief. Many people affected by a natural disaster may be overwhelmed and confused by the insurance claims-filing process. However, it is critical that claims be filed correctly to ensure that policyholders receive the payments they are owed, reports Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation Commissioner Kevin Clinton. Clinton has some insurance tips to Michigan consumers faced with a crisis caused by Mother Nature. “Understanding your insurance policy, keeping detailed records and providing correct information will help you avoid problems with getting your claims paid,” Clinton said in a statement. Know Your Policy: Understand what your policy says. The policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. Know what’s covered, what’s excluded and what the deductibles are. Assessing the Damage: When assessing your property following a disaster, remember to photograph and/or video tape any damage. File Claims As Soon As Possible: Don’t let the bills or receipts pile up. Call your agent or your company’s claims hotline as soon as possible. Your policy may require that you make the notification within a certain time frame. Provide Complete, Correct Information: Be certain to give your insurance company all the information they need. Incorrect or incomplete information will only cause a delay in processing your claim. Keep Copies of all Correspondence: Whenever you communicate with your insurance company, be sure to keep copies and records of all correspondence. Write down information about your telephone and in-person contacts, including the date, name and title of the person you spoke with and what was said. Also keep a record of your time and expenses. Auto and Homeowner Claims: Auto and homeowners policies may require you to make temporary repairs to protect your property from further damage. Your policy should cover the cost of these repairs, so keep all receipts. Also, maintain any damaged personal property for the adjuster to inspect. If possible, take photos or videos of the damage before making repairs. Don’t make permanent repairs. An insurance company may deny a claim if you make permanent repairs before the damage is inspected. If possible, determine what it will cost to repair your property before you meet with the claims adjuster. When meeting with an adjuster provide them with records of any improvements you made to your property and ask for an itemized explanation of the claim settlement offer. Accident and Health Claims Ask your physician to provide your insurance company with details about your treatment, medical condition and prognosis. Make sure to review your emergency medical treatment requirements — for instance, what are your outof-pocket expenses if you need to seek medical treatment at a facility outside of your network? What’s your emergency room co-pay? It never hurts to have a list of these details. Claims Settlements If there is a disagreement about the claim settlement, ask the company for the specific language in the policy that is in question. Find out if the disagreement is because you and the insurance company interpret your policy differently. If this disagreement results in a claim denial, make sure you obtain a written letter from the company explaining the reason for the denial and the specific policy language in your policy under which the claim is being denied. If you have a question or complaint about an insurance company, policy or professional contact the Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation toll free at 1877-999-66442.
Federal judge blocks Utah immigration law By JOSH LOFTIN Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY— A federal judge on Tuesday blocked a Utah immigration law that would have allowed police to check the citizenship status of anyone they arrest, citing its similarities to the most controversial parts of an Arizona law that seems bound for the U.S. Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups issued his ruling in Salt Lake City just 14 hours after the law went into effect, saying that there is sufficient evidence that at least some portions of the Utah legislation will be found unconstitutional. The American Civil Liberties Union and National Immigration Law Center last week sued to stop the implementation of House Bill 497, saying it could lead to racial profiling. The civil rights groups submitted hundreds of pages of evidence and affidavits to prove their claims ahead of Tuesday’s hearing. Utah Assistant Attorney General Jerrold Jensen said the ruling was “not a surprise.” Jensen said after the hearing that the law is “fully constitutional” and that his office plans to “argue it vigorously.” Utah’s law is significantly different from Arizona’s because it doesn’t allow police to check the status of every person they encounter, Jensen said in court. “They want to try the Arizona law, and they make allegations against Utah that may well have applied to Arizona,” Jensen said. “But just because the Arizona law is unconstitutional doesn’t mean the Utah law is unconstitutional.” The next hearing on is set for July 14, where both sides will be expected to argue whether the law is constitutional. Waddoups could then decide whether to allow the law to go into effect or overturn it because of constitutional issues. If he overturned it, the measure’s

Lawmakers lay down markers for debt crisis
Obama’s rating rises
GOP rejects idea of millionaire’s surtax
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s approval rating has hit its highest point in two years — 60 percent — and more than half of Americans now say he deserves to be re-elected, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll taken after U.S. forces killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden. In worrisome signs for Republicans, the president’s standing improved not just on foreign policy but also on the economy, and independent Americans — a key voting bloc in the November 2012 presidential election — caused the overall uptick in support by sliding back to Obama after fleeing for much of the past two years.
Postal Service reports losses WASHINGTON (AP) — The Postal Service is continuing to hemorrhage money, reporting a loss Tuesday of more than $2 billion over the first three months of the year and warning it could be forced to default on federal payments. Such a default would not interrupt mail service to millions of Americans, but it could further hobble an agency struggling with a sharp decline in mail because of the Internet and a tough economy. The agency says the $2.2 billion loss covers Jan. 1 to March 31 — sharply higher than the net loss of $1.6 billion for the same period last year. The post office also said it will have reached its borrowing limit, set by Congress, of $15 billion by the end of the budget year on Sept. 30.
Border town site of violence
GUADALUPE DISTRITO BRAVOS, Mexico (AP) — It was a bloody sunrise for the people of this dusty Mexican border town Tuesday. Police found two male heads on top of a cement wall in the plaza of Guadalupe Distrito Bravos, a town on the outskirts of Ciudad Juarez, right across El Paso, Texas. Two headless bodies, one of them stabbed in the back, were later found in two separate homes. Another man and a woman were then discovered in a nearby house with their throats slashed.

Gingrich starts campaign
WASHINGTON (AP) — The battle over whether tax increases can be used to cut the nation’s debt flared Tuesday as the Senate’s Democratic budget writer floated a possible millionaire’s surtax to help cut projected deficits over the next decade. But Republican leaders flatly said no to tax increases. Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, D-N.D., raised the idea of an extra tax on the wealthiest taxpayers, Democratic officials said, and the Senate’s Democratic leader, Harry Reid, D-Nev., called for an end to tax subsidies for oil and gas companies. House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell both staked out seemingly unyielding positions against tax increases The parties exchanged volleys over taxes even as bipartisan congressional negotiators working with Vice President Joe Biden struggled for common ground on spending cuts that would help erode longterm deficits. Boehner is calling for trillions of dollars in spending cuts, and the Democrats, too, acknowledge that spiraling annual deficits require spending restraint. But the differences over possible tax

The conflicting approaches to debt reduction set the stage for a grand national debate that will likely play out for the next year and half over overhauling taxes and restructuring major government benefit programs such as Medicare, Medicaid
Mississippi River takes aim at poverty-stricken Delta VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) — William Jefferson paddles slowly down his street in a small boat, past his house and around his church, both flooded from the bulging Mississippi River that has rolled into the Delta. “Half my life is still in there,” he said, pointing to the small white house swamped by several feet of water. “I hate to see it when I go back in.” The river was taking aim at one of the most poverty-stricken parts of the country after cresting Tuesday at Memphis, Tenn., just inches short of the record set in 1937. Some low-lying Memphis neighborhoods were inundated, but the city’s high levees protected much of the rest of Memphis.
Downstream in Louisiana, inmates were filling sandbags to protect property in Cajun swamp communities that could be flooded if engineers open a spillway to protect the more densely populated Baton Rouge area. Fear was high among residents there. Jefferson’s Vicksburg neighborhood has been one of the hardest hit in the historic city that was the site of a pivotal Civil War battle. Jefferson refuses to leave, so he spends his days in the sweltering sun watching the water rise and sleeping in a camper at an intersection that’s likely to flood soon, too. “If you don’t stay with your stuff, you won’t have it,” he said. “This is what I do every day. Just watch the water.”
and Social Security. The bipartisan budget negotiators who met with Biden for the second time in a week Tuesday are seeking more immediate solutions to long-term deficits. Those talks are under way while the administration seeks an increase in the government’s borrowing authority, and Republicans see that debt ceiling vote as critical leverage for spending cuts. Biden, emerging from a two-hour meeting with congressional negotiators across from the White House, voiced optimism about the talks, but indicated that top House and Senate leaders might ultimately have to become involved to seal any bargain. “Whether we get to the finish line with this group is another question,” he said. Another round of talks is scheduled for Thursday. One of the Republicans’ top negotiators with Biden, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia, signaled flexibility Tuesday. Cantor said the talks were designed to find where the White House, Democrats and Republican were “in terms of commonality right now” and indicated that an agreement on spending cuts in broad terms could be enough to win support for increasing the debt ceiling.

Dear Annie: I live in a small condominium community of 24 units. Two units down, there is an older woman who is a hoarder. She continually has trash piled up by her front door and back porch. When you look through her glass sliding doors, you can see trash from floor to ceiling. She piles up garbage on her car, and it sits there for several days before she takes it to the dumpster. She also has two dogs, and we never see her walking them. This has been going on for the past 15 years. The board of directors of our condo association has tried everything from calling the county municipal department to notifying animal control. The board has fined her for various misdemeanors, such as not allowing pest control in her unit and leaving all that trash around, but it makes no difference. The woman does not talk to anyone in the community, and we never see friends or family visit. We are all afraid of what that unit looks like inside. Any suggestions? — Condo Owner Dear Owner: Hoarding is a form of mental illness, and this woman likely needs professional help. Since you can see the trash inside her home, as well as outside, it may constitute evidence that her hoarding has created a health code violation and the Dept. of Health could order her to clean it up. There may also be a fire hazard, in which case the condominium board should notify the fire department. As a last resort, the condo board could sue her. Ask the board to discuss this problem with their association attorney to see what steps can be taken. Dear Annie: My wife and I are friends with “Mike” and “Marty,” who are in their early 20s, a bit younger than we are. Mike and Marty pick fights over the most ridiculous things, and even if you make a good point, they won’t agree. They do things they know will bother or offend us, such as when they make anti-religious comments. They also seem unappreciative of things we have done for them. I helped Mike work on his car and was never thanked for it. We have had them over for dinner
Annie’s Mailbox more than once and have yet to be told “thank you” or to receive an invite to their place. They sometimes say nice things on Facebook about their other friends, but never about us. I honestly enjoy hanging out with Mike and Marty, but the little fits they have over ridiculous things are getting old. Lately, we’ve stopped communicating, just to see what will happen. It would be nice to be appreciated for our efforts. How do we handle this? — Unappreciated in Massachusetts Dear Massachusetts: You are at a different point in your life than Mike and Marty. What you have in common is no longer so obvious. We are not sure why you wish to maintain a friendship with people who do not seem to appreciate you, but since you do, try to understand their limitations and accept them as they are. And if they say something offensive, by all means, ask them to stop. Dear Annie: You printed a letter I wrote that I signed, “Still Here Doing This.” I told you that I was married to a mentally ill, emotionally abusive man. I stayed for the children, who now rarely visit. I wanted to let you know that I am not “still here” anymore. I finally mustered the courage to leave when it was apparent that my husband was only getting worse. I had the police remove him from our home, took out a restraining order and filed for divorce. I encourage anyone who is married to such a person to get out. I have no regrets. The emotional and physical abuse needed to end. — Not There Anymore Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

‘The Desk Set’ opens this weekend IRON MOUNTAIN — The Dickinson County Community Theatre will host its production of “The Desk Set” at the Performing Arts Center in Iron Mountain. The performances are May 13-14, May 20-21 at 8 p.m. and May 22 at 2 p.m. The comedy is a stage classic that has witty characters, great humor, and a touch of romance. “The Desk Set” by William Marchant was made into a movie of the same name in the 1950s. The film was a popular vehicle for the famous duo, Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, whose charming performances endeared the story to its audiences. Although there are some differences between the two versions, both are entertainment favorites. “The Desk Set” takes place in New York City at a broadcasting company. The
female employees of the reference department are competent researchers, but they get nervous when an efficiency expert introduces a computer. Their supervisor, Bunny Watson, goes head to head with the monster machine, matching her wits against an electronic brain. Meanwhile, the office girls are distracted by some handsome bachelors from upstairs and an office Christmas party that provides one of the funniest scenes on stage. This production has recreated the 1950s setting with impressive detail. Vintage touches such as the telephones, water cooler, and typewriter add a realistic flair. A skilled stage crew created a giant computer whose size indicates the era’s technology. The show’s producers point out that this winter the
television show “Jeopardy” hosted a week of games that pitted a modern computer against two humans. The IBM computer named “Watson” easily defeated its human competition. Coincidentally, in “The Desk Set,” the character of Bunny Watson has a similar showdown with the 1950s version named “Emmerac.” Audiencegoers will have to see the play to know the outcome of this challenge. Director Gail Galotta is excited about bringing the play to the local stage. “This play has all the elements for an entertaining show–a great play, a talented cast, and a skilled production crew. Even the rehearsals have been fun because the actors enjoy their characters so much. I am very proud of their dedication and hope that the community supports their
efforts by attending one of the several performances,” she said. The cast members are Jessica Muench, Elisabeth Pluth, Marianne Winden, Andra Johnson, Fred Jump, Jonathan Ringel, Patricia Staller, Mark Miller, Jan Miller, Dara Carr, Kathy Stenlund, and John Wilkinson. “After a long winter, this play offers a light-hearted evening out with someone you love,” suggests Galotta. “There are lots of laughs and moments of sweetness that you will relish even after you leave the theatre.” Tickets are $12 and may be purchased at The Dickinson County Chamber of Commerce, the First National Bank of Iron Mountain, and the First National Bank of Norway. For more information call the DCCT office at (906) 776-1078.

Judge grants extension in Wisconsin court recount MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A judge gave Waukesha County nearly three more weeks to complete its recount in the state Supreme Court race, saying that he would sacrifice speed for confidence in the county's results. Wisconsin counties had until this week to complete their recounts. State elections officials said all the counties had finished by mid-afternoon except Waukesha. The county's attorney, Tom Farley, said tabulators there had completed only about a third of their work. He told Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess that tabulators have been moving extremely carefully and documenting even the smallest anomalies. County officials want precise, transparent accounting after the county clerk failed to
report 14,000 votes that flipped the race from challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg to incumbent Justice David Prosser, he said. "We seem to be the focus of this maelstrom," Farley told the judge. "All the 'Is' are being dotted and all the 'Ts' are being crossed." Niess gave the county until May 26 to finish. He said county officials were moving slowly, but the pace should ensure public confidence in the totals. "They're not shirking. They're not dilly-dallying over there," Niess said. Kloppenburg, a state attorney, entered the race as a political unknown and faced long odds against Prosser. But she got a late boost after her supporters worked to link the conservative Prosser to Republican Gov. Scott
Walker and his divisive proposal to strip most public workers of nearly all their union rights. Initial results from the April 5 election showed Kloppenburg defeated Prosser by about 200 votes. But a day after Kloppenburg declared victory, Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus announced she had forgotten to report 14,000 votes from the city of Brookfield. The new votes turned the election in Prosser's favor. Final tallies showed him with a 7,316-vote lead. The margin was less than one-half of 1 percent of the total votes cast, entitling Kloppenburg to a recount at local governments' expense. Prosser's campaign complained a recount would be costly and change nothing. Kloppenburg demanded one
anyway, saying she wanted to shine light on the election process and ensure every vote was counted. Nickolaus worked for Prosser when he was a Republican legislator in the 1990s. She recused herself from overseeing the county's recount a day before it began to avoid any appearance of a conflict. County Executive Dan Vrakas appointed Robert Mawdsley, a retired judge, to run the recount in her place. Daniel Kelly, an attorney for Prosser's campaign, told Niess the county must move faster. Delays in the recount's final results would leave little time to resolve potential appeals before Prosser's term ends Aug. 1. That means his seat could end up vacant while the campaigns fight it out in court, he warned.

IRON MOUNTAIN — Every second Saturday in May letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America participate in the “Stamp Out Hunger” National Food Drive. On Saturday, May 14, carriers will collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters. Led by letter carriers represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO) and with the help of National Rural Letter Carriers Association (NRLCA), other postal employees and numerous other volunteers, the drive has resulted in delivery of more than one billion pounds of donations to community food banks and pantries over the past 18 years. The U.S. Postal Service and Campbell Soup Company are major supporters of the drive. Campbell Soup has also earmarked an additional 1 millions pounds of canned food donations to the drive. The drive also relies on the backing of the National Rural Letter Carriers Associ-
ation, the Feeding America food bank network, the United Way of America and it’s local United Ways, the AFLCIO Community Services network, and countless local sponsors. “With many men, women and children living at risk of hunger please join me and many other residents of the Iron Mountain/Kingsford area by placing a non-perishable food donation next to your mailbox to help Stamp Out Hunger,” said Thomas L. Selin, Postmaster, Iron Mountain. “Some 35.5 million people face hunger every day in America, including 13 million children. This drive is one way people can help those right in their own city or town who need help,” he said. All citizens need do is to place the food next to their mailbox before their letter carrier delivers mail on Saturday, May 14 The carrier will do the rest. The food is taken back to a postal station, sorted, and then delivered to the food pantries in the local area.

Hockey — Sink Sharks 3-1 — Final Thursday in San Jose decisive seventh game after trailing 3-0 in the pulsating second-round series. Detroit is the eighth NHL team to force a Game 7 after
starting a series with three straight losses. The Red Wings did it themselves once, but that was back in 1945, and they ended up losing the finale to Toronto. “It’ll be a new game with both of us having an opportunity,” Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. “We have lots of guys who’ve risen to the occasion many times in their career.” After a night full of missed
chances and agonizing bounces, the Red Wings scored three times in the final 9:22, delighting a delirious crowd at Joe Louis Arena that seemed even more boisterous than usual. Game 7 is Thursday night at San Jose. The Sharks must defend home ice to avoid becoming the fourth NHL team to lose a best-of-seven series after leading 3-0. Logan Couture (Continued on page 5-B)

Redettes blank Flivvs Fifth-straight shutout By CRAIG REMSBURG For The Daily News MARQUETTE — Defense is the name of the game right now for the Marquette Senior High school girls soccer team. Coach Dan Lebert’s Redettes improved to 8-1 on the season Tuesday with a 3-0 Senior Night win over Kingsford at the Kaufman Complex in Marquette. It was Marquette’s fifth straight shutout. “They’re working the ball and using the whole back of the defensive end,” Lebert said of his Redettes. “They’re not trying to take the attacker one-on-one. They’re revolving the ball around the back. “I’ve been watching Northern Michigan University play and that’s something I picked up from (Wildcat head coach) Matt Granstrand. “I’ve always been an offensive-minded coach,” he added, “but I’ve learned a lot on the defensive end.” Kingsford (5-2-1) managed just three shots on goal against the MSHS goalkeeping duo of Kayla Casey and Destiny Martin. Marissa Menghini forced Martin to make a leaping save in the second half, not long after Megan VanPembrook sent a shot just wide of the Redettes’ net. “They’re a great team,” Flivvers head coach Todd Formolo said of Marquette. “They outplayed our right side and we couldn’t get anything going. “It was their offense, and not

They controlled the midfield up to the forward positions on long balls and beautiful crosses by Haley (Boroughf).” Boroughf and Alex Gencheff paced the MSHS offense with a goal and an assist apiece. Casey also scored in the second half for Marquette, with Zoe Taylor and Lydia Kurin picking up assists after a 0-0 first half. Boroughf, who hit the Flivvers’ crossbar with a shot in the first half, sent a low shot past Kingsford goalkeeper Jessica
Bobcats roll; Patriots bow Northern Lakes baseball PHELPS, Wis. — Florence, fueled by a 31-hit attack, took a Northern Lakes Conference baseball doubleheader from Phelps, 18-6 and 25-3, in a pair of five-inning contests here Tuesday. Eric Huotari won the first game, allowing five hits and three walks while fanning seven. Game one offense leaders included Zach Carobine with three hits and five RBI, Matt Jackson with two hits and a homer, Kyle Abbas with a double, single and four RBI, Jeremy Streu with three hits including a double and Jeremy Schalow with two hits. Bryce Kerscher took the game-two decision, yielding two hits and four walks with seven punchouts. Jackson pounded four hits including a double. Kerscher homered and stole three bases. Jackson Baumgart added two hits. Dusty Neuens smacked two doubles and collected four RBI, and Corey Smith hit a double and launched a home run, totaling four RBI. Florence (8-1, 8-1) hosts Goodman-Pembine Thursday. Goodman-Pembine 7, Crandon 1 CRANDON, Wis. — Ricky Ginter shackled the Goodman-Pembine bats here Tuesday, handing the Patriots a 7-1 Northern Lakes Conference baseball loss. Ginter tossed a complete-game, holding the Patriots to just one run on five hits while striking out 11. He also doubled for the Cardinals. “Crandon did a nice job of the putting the bat on the ball early,” Patriots coach Kris Johnson said. “Ginter threw a nice game for them.” Taylor Schallock hit three doubles for Crandon. Kevin Kowalkowski (two singles) and Grant Rocque (single, double) led Goodman-Pembine at the plate. Austin Lorenz took the loss, going four innings and allowing six hits, six walks with six punchouts. Rocque finished with two innings of hitless ball. Patriots (5-4, 5-2) head to Florence
... Wings-Sharks (Continued from page 1-B) scored early in the third period for San Jose, but Zetterberg tied it with 9:22 remaining, and Filppula scored the winner with 7:28 left. Darren Helm added an empty-net goal. The Red Wings are the second team this season to erase a 3-0 series hole. Chicago did it in the first round before losing Game 7 at Vancouver. Philadelphia came all the way back last year in the second round, winning the final four games against Boston. Those recent successes make the task now seem less daunting. “We’ve just got to go out there and win one game,” Detroit defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom said. “That’s it. That’s totally our approach. We can’t relax because every game has been so tight and so close. We’re not done yet. That’s going to be the same approach for Game 7.”
Campbell for the game’s third goal. Campbell made nine saves for Kingsford. “She had a fantastic game,” Formolo said. “She shouldn’t have to make that many saves. “We played (Marquette) straight up,” he added, “(and we) played terrible. We just couldn’t get anything going. “A lot of that was Marquette wanting the ball and moving the space to make plays.” Flivvers host Three Lakes on Thursday.
Suburb pitches Vikings stadium ARDEN HILLS, Minn. (AP) — The owners of the Minnesota Vikings said Tuesday the team’s future is in the suburbs, announcing a deal with Ramsey County to collaborate on a $1.1 billion retractable-roof football stadium about 10 miles north of their current home at the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis. The deal between the Vikings and Ramsey County, announced to great fanfare at a news conference near the site, appeared to end the debate over the location of the team’s long-sought stadium — at least from the Vikings’ perspective. But the team and its supporters still face a tough fight for approval in the dwindling days of Minnesota’s legislative session. The Vikings and Ramsey County proposed a stadium at the site of a former Army ammunition plant.

For Better or For Worse
Astrograph Celebrity Cipher For Thursday, May 12 By Bernice Bede Osol
Arlo & Janis
The Born Loser
Frank & Ernest
In the year ahead, favorable recognition as well as advancement in your chosen field of endeavor will be slated if you do good work. It behooves you to stay on your toes and knock ‘em dead. TAURUS (April 20May 20) — By doing something to get your mind off of mundane affairs, it could both heighten and brighten your productivity. Squeeze in a recreational outlet if you can. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — If it is difficult for you to gather some important but private information, you should ask indirect questions rather than blunt ones. It might be easier to gather all the facts bit by bit. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, you should be pleased rather than upset when others try to emulate your mode of dress or mannerisms. Be a trendsetter. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you have a choice between making a profit or making a name for yourself, choose the latter. Selfesteem is far more enduring and has much greater value than silver. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t hesitate to repeat a previously successful endeavor instead of taking on a new one. Review your entire inventory of past successful undertakings. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Your instincts about a joint endeavor are right on the money. It would be to the advantage of everybody involved to accede to your inclinations or impulses. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 22) — Big shots will actually have more respect for assertiveness than humility on your part. Use boldness when boldness is called for, and step back only when it is necessary. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Be sure your objectives are proportionate to your abilities or talent, and success is inevitable. As long as you are certain you don’t overrate or underrate yourself, you’ll be a big hit. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Let the youthfulness within you bubble to the surface. Friends, family and business associates will all find your joyousness contagious, making it a powerful factor of your popularity. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 19) — Some kind of propitious development will prove to be quite beneficial to you. It is likely to be an outside influence such as a friend who opens the door and starts things rolling. PISCES (Feb. 20March 20) — It’s important to see yourself as an equal or a counterpart when negotiating something big. Deal only from a place of power, not from any feelings of obligation or inferiority. ARIES (March 21April 19) — Because you possess a bit of the Midas touch, you could easily reap more profits than usual from even your normal sources. Just keep striving to do the best you can.

Joe Sade’s Carpet Cleaning Service opens in Norway area
N O R W A Y — A n e w business has opened in the Norway area — Joe Sade’s Carpet Cleaning Service — to serve Dickinson, Iron, and Menominee counties. Formerly Central Carpet Cleaning, the owners Joe and Jocelyne Sade have upgraded to a new van and changed the company name.

ourselves and John Deere, which represents what can be achieved when partners collaborate. We all agreed that using the Grede lost foam casting process was the best solution for this application and we are very pleased with the results,” noted Doug Grimm, chairman, president and CEO of Grede Holdings LLC, when accepting the award. Grede enhances the casting quality and value of the timing gear cover by integrating the water pump volute, exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve and coolant return passages, among other various cast passages and openings throughout the component. These pas-
sages eliminate the need for external lines routing around the engine, thus saving critical space within the engine envelope. The lost foam process also provides superior surface finish in the volute area resulting in improved pump performance. In addition, the use of gray iron significantly reduces gear noise. Grede Holdings LLC was formed in 2010 through the combination of assets of the former Grede Foundries, Inc., Blackhawk Foundry (USA), and Citation Corporation. With estimated annual revenues in excess of $850 million, the Grede Holdings LLC legacy dates back to 1920 when William J. Grede

Grede awarded Best In Class by the American Foundry Society KINGSFORD— Grede Holdings LLC has won the “Best in Class” Award from the American Foundry Society (AFS) for its new timing gear cover for the John Deere 9 liter IT4 reduced-emissions engine.

This award results from close teamwork between
