AMERICA LEANS FORWARD Barack Obama made his final, and ultimately resolute, pitch to a crowd of more than 15,000 at the University of CIncinnati’s Fifth Third Bank Arena. Hamilton County — where Cincinnati is located — was called one of the three swing counties in the three most important swing states in America for the 2012 presidential election.

PROJECTIONS COULD NOT STOP RE-ELECTION Obama wins second term in extremely close race Despite Ohio, Florida being too close to call, Romney concedes presidential race just before 1 a.m.

arack Obama fended off a spirited challenge on Super Tuesday to retain his residency at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. With most precincts reporting as of press time, and all major outlets calling the election, Obama won enough key swing states to ensure a recount in either Florida or Ohio would not change the outcome of the Electoral College vote. Days before Super Tuesday, national polls had Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney in a dead heat, and as of press time neither candidate conceded the election. From the White House, Obama Tweeted “Four More Years” along with a picture of he and First Lady Michelle Obama embracing on a gloomy day. Less than a two-hour flight away, in Boston, the former Massachusetts governor — behind in polls according to most media outlets — refused to concede anything with a recount looming in Florida, and possibly, Ohio. Locally, Rep. Stev Chabot (R-Ohio) expressed concern over the future of America. “So many people are really concerned about what a second Obama presidency could mean, and I think it’s really going to come down to Ohio,” Chabot said. Ultimately, Ohio’s vote proved to be the final nail in the coffin of Romney’s presidential aspirations. The race began after Romney defeated a lackluster crowd of

contenders in the GOP primary — a competition that saw a revolving door of frontrunners come and go before finally yielding to Romney. Then there was the GOP convention in Tampa, Fla., where Clint Eastwood performed his infamous empty chair routine, giving plenty of ammunition to pundits looking to criticize the aging celebrity and former mayor of Carmel, Calif. Next up was the DNC convention in Charlotte, N.C., and a chance for Obama to reignite a base that carried him to a decisive victory over Sen. John McCain (Rep.-Ariz.) in 2008. Following the conventions, the race leaned toward Obama by as many as seven percentage points, according to polling services. Then, the fight hit the streets, and the candidates got their negative campaigns going in full swing. In Ohio, there was also an ugly battle for - @BarackObama a seat in the Senate, as Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown defeated Republican Josh Mandel handily, while third-party entities spent millions attempting to use what was thought to be a negative tide against Obama to defeat Brown. And those parties had polling on their side — Romney pulled even with Obama by most accounts, even going ahead in some polling by as much as four points. Then came the debates, and the less-then-impressive showing by Obama in the first debate. Obama followed up with decent performances in the second and third debates, but nothing enough to give him a comfortable margin ahead of Super Tuesday. The election was set to be the closest since the 2000 showdown between former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Al Gore, where Florida was decided by hanging chads and a Supreme Court Ruling. It didn’t disappoint. Throughout the night, partisan crowds gathered and waited to celebrate, but ultimately America would re-elect its first black president. When all the campaign capital was spent, $1,960,360,133 was spent, with Romney’s camp spending $96,333,357 more than the president’s, according to Federal Election Commission filings as of press time. In the end, super-PAC money, an approval rating less than 50 percent, controversial events in the Middle East and lackluster debate performances could not derail the 44th President’s journey toward four more years, and yet another round of sparring with partisan politics on Capitol Hill.

Republican Party Democratic Party RYAN HOFFMAN | NEWS EDITOR Local Republican candidates and supporters filled Toby Keith’s I Love this Bar and Grill in anticipation of the election results. While many were confident presidential nominee Mitt Romney would win, there was no denying the race would be close. “We knew it would be a close race and right now we’re waiting to see what happens,” said Alex Triantafillou, chairman of the Hamilton County Republicans. “We had a terrific effort heading into today.” The anticipation was shared by people of all ages. Attendees split time between talking to each other and eagerly watching the televisions for poll results.

“For a college student this is the most pivotal election of our life time,”Kaiser said. “We need to win to get the country back on track. If Romney loses I will fell like myself and the rest of Ohio let the country down” While many attendees were increasingly watching the results as the night went on, very few were concerned with local ballot issues. “Generally the electorate looks more toward personality than policy and it’s not good for the country,”Triantafillou said. As the race got tighter peoples attention were focused solely on the televisions. “This presidential race is amazing,“ said Joe Deters, Hamilton County Prosecutor, who was victorious in his reelection campaign.“It’s exactly what they predicted, tight as crap.”

BEN GOLDSCHMIDT | CHIEF REPORTER Local Democrats gathered at Cincy’s on Sixth hoping President Barack Obama would get re-elected. Individuals in attendance watched eagerly as the fate of several state and local issues were decided by voters in Ohio and across the country. Many attendees said the work Obama did on health and education reform during his first term was too vital to be turned over to Mitt Romney. “I think that the president’s fundamental philosophy is not to have a government that is overbearing or does everything, but helps provide a playing field where everyone has access to opportunity,” said Cincinnati City Councilmember P.G.

Sittenfeld. Democrats who supported Issue 2, which would create a committee to draw legislative and congressional district maps, said the maps would reflect Ohio’s political diversity. “We have issues on the county level, the board of education level, the governor level, things that aren’t universal health care or war — big picture issues the president deals with,” Seelbach said. “Issues that really are a part of people’s everyday lives are decided by people who represent us on a city, county or state level.” Homero Castro of Cincinnati said he supports Obama because he feels persecution from Republicans for being an immigrant. Castro is originally from Mexico.

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D–Ohio) defeated Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel (R-Ohio) in the race for United States Senate. Brown, the incumbent, ran on a platform encouraging the protection and conservation of natural resources, and the broadening of Ohio resources for small businesses in order to create more jobs. Matt Rosen, an intern for the Sherrod Brown campaign from California, said Browns re-election is crucial to promote liberal issues in the Senate. “He supports a woman’s right to choose and women’s rights in general,” Rosen said. “He also supports gay rights, which is important.” Brown said he plans to reduce wasteful spending and promote economic development in Ohio.

KARA DRISCOLL | NEWS EDITOR Connie Pillich (D–Ohio) won a contentious race against Republican candidate Mike Wilson and will represent Ohio in the House of Representatives’ 28th district. Pillich, the incumbent, is a supporter of public schools and fights to restore funding. She ran on a platform designed to help veterans obtain employment upon their return home. Pillich promised to ensure companies cannot deny anyone coverage for basic health care services.

Many attendees at the Democratic presidential watch party at Cincy’s on Sixth felt the Ohio senate race between Brown and Mandel was as important as the presidential election. “He’s the senator that Ohio deserves,” said Dan Traicoff, president of the University of Cincinnati College Democrats. “He’s been standing up for Ohio values the entire time — women’s rights, gay rights, LGBT rights.” Chief Reporter Benjamin Goldschmidt contributed to this story.

Pillich has a history of supporting business, and early in her second term she co-sponsored a bill providing tax credits to businesses that would agree to expand into vacant facilities and increase payroll. One of her greatest achievements was as a lawyer, when she won a case before the Ohio Supreme Court concerning voting rights on local land use. An eight-year veteran of the United States Air Force, Pillich is a three-time recipient of the Air Force Commendation medal, and earned Officer of the Year award at Tempelhof Air Base.

Lakshmi Sammarco will continue to serve as Hamilton County Coroner after defeating Peter Kambelos. Sammarco was appointed coroner in March following the sudden death of Anant Bhati. A graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Engineering and the College of Medicine, Sammarco is a board-certified neuroradiologist. Sammarco felt less than confident the night of the election but remained optimistic. “I was feeling more confident before,” she said. Sammarco aims to develope a “virtual autopsy” program for Hamilton County. She said the program promotes innovation. “We don’t need state-of-the-art equipment,” Sammarco said. “Scans take 40 seconds from head to pelvis.”

Cincinnati citizens voted in Jim Neil as the Hamilton County Sheriff for the next four years. Neal is a 30-year law enforcement veteran and graduate of the University of Cincinnati. He served as a lieutenant and commander of the Hamilton County Bomb Squad before retiring in 2011. “The most important issue for Hamilton County Sheriff Office is budget cuts,” Cleppers said. “Jim brings a new look at the budget and he called for a top-to-bottom fiscal audit of the department as well as an operational audit.” As sheriff, Neil plans to restore fiscal responsibility and provide more service with less politics, he said. Neil defeated Donovan, who began his career in 1981 as a Hamilton country corrections officer and has served 31 years on the police force.

Congressional district issue turned down

Ballot issue too close to call by press time

KARA DRISCOLL | NEWS EDITOR

Cincinnati voters rejected Issue 1, which, if passed, would have required appointed delegates to assemble and consider possible amendments to the constitution. If Issue 1 passed, appointed delegates could have scraped the current constitution and written a new one. A constitutional convention automatically appears on the ballot every 20 years in what is known as an automatic ballot referral under state law. Any changes drafted during the convention must be put in front of the Ohio electorate before it can be enacted. “Nobody appeared to be in support of [the ballot issue],” said Tim Burke, chair of the Hamilton County Democratic Party. “Nobody appeared to be in support of it, nobody was out there advocating for it and very few voters even had a clue what it was about.” Issue 1 went on the ballots automatically, Burke said. Ohio voters have not called for a constitutional convention in more than 100 years. The last convention was held in 1911, one year before the automatic ballot referral first appeared on the Ohio ballot.

Ohioans voted down a ballot issue that would have changed the process of drawing congressional districts in the buckeye state. “Issue 2 would have made both the congressional districts and the state, senate and house districts competitive — and that would’ve been good for democracy,” said Tim Burke, chairman of the Hamilton County Democratic Party. The issue would have removed the responsibility of drawing districts away from elected officials, instead appointing the task to a committee of 12 citizens. “[Issue 2 and Issue 4] are important issues that will hopefully be defeated,” said Peter Kambelos, candidate for Hamilton County Coroner. “They will change the landscape for the city and not for the better.” Kambelos strongly opposed Issue 2 because it puts redistricting in the hands of unaccountable groups that don’t have to answer to voters, he said. “Issue 2 is a disaster for the state,” Kambelos said. Committee members would have been chosen during a 10-month process every 10 years. Four members from each of the top two political parties —determined by voters from the most recent gubernatorial race — and four non-partisan members would have made up the committee.

Issue 4, which would amend the city charter extending council member’s terms from two to four years, was too close to call before press time. Council members would have been elected at large the same year as the mayor starting in 2013. Approximately 50.91 percent of Cincinnatians voted “YES” on Issue 4 while 49.09 percent voted “NO” on the ballot issue. The passage of the issue could amend the city charter extending council member’s terms from two to four years. All nine council members will be elected at large the same year as the mayor starting in 2013. The current eight-year term limits will be maintained under these changes by limiting council members to two consecutive four-year terms instead of four consecutive two-year terms. “Perserving two-years terms perserves more accountability,” said Councilmember P.G. Sittenfeld. Supporters said the issue will reduce the amount of time council members spend campaigning, allowing them to serve the city better. The issue will also reduce the cost of elections. Opponents said the changes will benefit council members and inhibit voters’ ability to remove underperforming council members.

7 more Tibetans set selves on fire Latest string of self-immolation brings total to about 60 since last year tom lasseter mcclatchy newspapers BEIJING — Seven ethnic Tibetans in China set themselves on fire in the past week, bringing the number of self-immolations in defiance of Chinese government rule to about 60 since last year, according to the Tibetan government in exile and an advocacy group. The London-based Free Tibet rights advocacy group said the string of self-immolations, from Oct. 20 to Oct. 26, was the highest in a single week since the current spate began in March 2011. Six of the self-immolations reportedly resulted in deaths. The Chinese government maintains that the acts of protest are part of a conspiracy linked to the Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, who fled to India after a failed uprising in 1959. But Tibetan groups say they're a local reaction to an oppressive regime that's worked to undermine traditional Tibetan culture, religion and language — a sentiment repeated by ethnic Tibetans in interviews over the past two years in areas where self-immolations have occurred. While the self-immolations have clustered in a region in the north of China's Sichuan Province, they have also spread across two other provinces and Tibet itself, which is ruled by Beijing and known officially as the Tibet Autonomous Region. Of the seven self-immolations last week, five were reported in China's western Gansu Province and two were said to have occurred in the Tibet Autonomous Region. The protesters included Dhondup, who like many Tibetans apparently uses only one name, a man in his 60s from a farming and nomadic family who last Monday set himself aflame beside a monastery in Gansu's Xiahe County. The two self-immolations in the Tibet Autonomous Region involved a 20-year-old and a 25-yearold who set themselves on fire together on Thursday. Free Tibet said they were cousins. The next day, two Tibetan men in their 20s set themselves on fire separately in Gansu's Xiahe County — both died. Chinese authorities have tried hard to prevent independent research on the subject. Foreign journalists are banned from travel without permission in the Tibet Autonomous Region, and security roadblocks deny access to Tibetan areas in outlying provinces. That's led to a situation in which verification of many details is between difficult and impossible. "Chinese state security are out in large numbers in the area, Internet and telephone communication systems are often blocked and Tibetans are afraid to talk about what is happening because they fear that their communications are being monitored by the government,” said a statement by Free Tibet.

OBSERVING THE DESTRUCTION A couple walks among the flood-ravaged area at the Sea Gate neighborhood of Coney Island, New York.

Sheltering homeless in Sandy’s wake main focus Tens of thousands’ homes flooded, powerless or deemed uninhabitable after storm cindy carcamo, molly hennessy-fiske and matt pearce los angeles times NEW YORK — With power slowly returning to New York and New Jersey and emergency fuel being rushed into the region, authorities turned Sunday to a potentially bigger problem in the wake of super storm Sandy: where to house the tens of thousands of people whose homes are no longer habitable. With a freeze expected in some areas Monday and another, smaller storm on the horizon, the housing problem took on urgency. Even with power and fuel restored, many houses no longer have functioning heating systems, since flooding saltwater ruined many basement heaters and electrical systems. “People are in homes that are uninhabitable,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a Sunday news conference. “It’s going to be increasingly clear that they’re uninhabitable when the temperature drops and the heat doesn’t come on.” Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, appearing at a news conference with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, called housing “the No. 1 concern.” “We don’t even know yet which of the houses are reparable and which are irreparable losses,” she said. “Those assessments are going on right now as well as finding temporary housing for individuals who can’t move back to their home right away.” New York City alone estimated that about 20,000 people would be left homeless there. Long Island and seaside New Jersey accounted for many more. “It’s unreal what’s going on here,” said Pinny Dembitzer, president of the Sea Gate Association in a hard-hit seaside neighborhood in Brooklyn. As many as 25 homes in the private community were lost to the storm, and about half of the remaining 825 or so were badly damaged, Dembitzer said. The 3,000 families in the neighborhood, many of them Orthodox Jews, struggled to dig out of the mud. Soaked and dirt-caked prayer books were piled along the road, drying in the sun as they awaited burial. They were too holy to be simply thrown away, Dembitzer said. Construction crews, sanitation workers and volunteers worked around the clock to move rubble from basements as temperatures dipped. Hundreds of volunteers, most from outside the community, handed out hot food, blankets and clothes to help people prepare for the cold weather. Signs of recovery were accumulating, as volunteers, supplies and relief money poured into the region. More subway lines began

The South Ferry station in Lower Manhattan, which Cuomo had compared to “a large fish tank,” was pumped dry after filling with water 30 feet deep. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg promised that city schools would reopen Monday even if kids had to be bused to different buildings. “Our kids have not had school for a week, and this is damaging them for the longer term,” he said. Christie said 800 of New Jersey’s 2,400 schools would open Monday. New Jersey’s Division of Elections is taking extraordinary measures to ensure that people displaced by the storm can still vote in Tuesday’s presidential election. The state agency said registered voters can cast a ballot at any polling place in the state, and can make arrangements to vote by email or fax. In Hoboken, N.J., construction worker Carlos Aponte was among those cheering from the street Sunday when power finally flickered on in his apartment building. He said the storm had brought out the best in people. “The town came together,” he said. “The people that have power are helping other people charge phones. I think it made Hoboken a better place. On a regular day, everybody sticks to who you know. Now, people have extension cords just hanging out their windows. It gives me hope for the world.” Huge challenges remain. As of Sunday afternoon, there were still nearly 1.9 million customers without power in seven states — as far south as West Virginia, as far north as Connecticut and as far west as Ohio. New York and New Jersey accounted for about 90 percent of the outages, with nearly 1 million customers without power in New Jersey alone. (Carcamo reported from New York, Hennessy-Fiske from Hoboken, N.J., and Pearce from Los Angeles. Mitchell Landsberg in Los Angeles contributed to this report.)

Report: Netanyahu, military split over Iran SHEERA FRENKEL McCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS JERUSALEM _ Israel's military leaders refused two years ago to put the country's army on alert for immediate action against Iran, telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak that Israel was not ready to take on Iran alone, according to a new documentary that aired here Monday. In an hourlong investigative report, the Israeli television program "Uvda" said that Netanyahu had ordered the heightened military alert during a meeting in late 2010. The report described the country's top military and intelligence leaders, Israel Defense Forces chief Gabi Ashkenazi and the director of the Mossad spy agency, Meir

Dagan, as "shocked" by Netanyahu's move and said they both argued strongly against the measure. Dagan argued that placing the military on heightened alert could lead to "an illegal decision to go to war," the program said. Ashkenazi argued that putting the military on alert for an immediate strike would be a step that the country could not easily back way from, the program said. "This is not something you do unless you are certain you want to use it at the end," Ashkenazi was quoted as having said. "This is not something you step down from." In an on-camera interview for the program, Barak confirmed that Netanyahu issued the order, but he said it was not carried out because Ashkenazi said the military couldn't carry out an attack on Iran. Ashkenazi denied

that, however, and said the decision not to go forward had been a political one. Israeli news organizations reported at the time that there had been a dispute between Barak and Ashkenazi, but the details had never been revealed. The report renews questions about whether Israel would be able to take unilateral action against Iran over that country's nuclear enrichment program, which Israel claims is intended to develop a weapon but that Iran says is for peaceful purposes only. Publicly, Israel's leaders have always said that "every option is on the table" when it comes to stopping Iran's nuclear program. Defense analysts, however, have argued that it would be extremely difficult _ if not impossible _ for Israel to carry out an attack without U.S. support.
