Eagles to host health screenings

Delphos residents will have the opportunity to be screened for P.A.D. as well as stroke and other vascular diseases on Nov. 10. In addition, a new disease risk assessment that predicts an individual’s risk for devel- oping 6 major chronic condi- tions in the next 5 years is also available. This patented assessment is being used on the “Biggest Loser” and is designed for persons 21 and older. The “Know Your 5” screening as seen on the Dr. Oz show will also be available that day. These ultrasound screen- ings are recommended for anyone 50 and older or 40 and older with cardiovascular risk factors. One in 15 people over the age of 55 have P.A.D. and by age 70, that number is 1 in 5. These screenings are non- invasive, painless, safe (with no radiation) and affordable. Allow 60 to 90 minutes to complete. The results, which are

mailed directly to participants, will help them and their doc- tor protect their health. For more information regarding the screenings/loca- tions/dates or to schedule an appointment, call 1-888-653- 6441 or go online to www.

Ohio GOP wins governor race, retakes Legislature


COLUMBUS — Republicans dominated

Election Day in Ohio, winning all five state- wide races and making key gains in other seats that will hold power in the next presi- dential election and state con- tests beyond


The GOP grabbed four statewide offices from Democrats on Tuesday, including gover- nor and secretary

of state, and held onto the fifth.

R e p u b l i c a n s

also racked up

a majority of the

state’s congres- sional delegation, retained a U.S. Senate seat and took control of the Ohio Legislature. Republican incumbents representing the Tri-county were all re-elected: Jim Jordan and Bob Latta to Congress; Matt Huffman and Lynn Wachtmann to the Ohio House; and Steve Buehrer to the Ohio Senate. Huffman said he is glad to have voter support but the next term will be difficult as the state looks at its next biennial budget. “In my conversations with a variety of peo-

ple, this will be a different process. This will not be stretched out over six months with last-minute voting because special interest groups want to make sure they get covered. We will look at how much money we have and what we need to spend it on. So, this will be more like

‘here’s the plan - we have to pass it to save Ohio, so let’s do it’,” he said. Buehrer believes his victory is validation of his performance in office. “I am pleased that the voters have over- whelmingly given me their support to con- tinue representing them in the Ohio Senate.

I find it very gratifying and humbling that so many voters have affirmed my work

on their behalf over the past four years,” he said. “I look forward to my continued service on behalf of this region and will continue to make jobs and the economy my primary focus. Working together, I know we can steady Ohio’s budget and build

a better state for our families and children.” Jordan sees the triumph as a call to battle. “We are cer- tainly pleased with the privi- lege to go fight for the things families, tax- payers and small business owners want us to fight

for,” he said.

The Democrats retained their majority in the Senate but Republicans will take over the House in January. Latta looks forward to being part of the majority. “In the majority, I look forward to work- ing with my Republican colleagues on reduc- ing our current staggering debt and deficit, shrinking the size of our bloated Federal government and install serious reforms on how Congress conducts business. The House will vote to repeal the government’s takeover of our nation’s health care system and replace it with health care reform that

years after voters had punished Republicans with big losses after GOP scan- dals in Columbus and Washington. Former U.S. Rep. John Kasich defeated Gov. Ted Strickland in

S t a t e w i d e voter turnout was 48.7 percent, the Ohio Secretary of State’s office reported on its web site today. That was way down from the nearly 70 percent turnout in the 2008 presidential election and it lagged the 56 percent turnout in November 2006, the last time Ohioans elected a governor. Anxiety over the economy ran deep among Ohio voters. Most feel the country is on the wrong track and nine out of 10 said they remain worried about what the next

year will bring, according to exit poll results for The Associated Press.

The gloomy mood was good for Kasich

and the state’s next U.S. senator, former Republican Rep. Rob Portman. Both men

had strong support from those most worried about the economy. Portman beat Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher, a Democrat, to replace retiring two-term

1% Earned Income Tax fails

Delphos City Schools to roll up sleeves for cuts



DELPHOS — While Delphos City Schools admin- istrators and board mem- bers are disappointed with the 1 percent Permanent Earned Income Tax failure on Tuesday, Board Vice President John Klausing said this morning there is little time for reflection. He said progress must be made to close the district’s budget in the black on June 30, 2012 and 2013. “We have to get the process started for cuts to close the gap in our bud- get,” Klausing said. “We will look it over and decide as a board what our options are. We also have to take into consideration what our new governor will do as far as funding education. We will have to move carefully and think through what we are going to do but we definitely need to get started.” The board has $500,000 in cuts in mind for the 2011- 12 year. The cuts include three grade-level elementary teachers; one high school teacher; eliminating all voca- tional extended days for FFA and guidance and bussing

between the city and parochial schools during the school day for Industrial Arts, Family Consumer Science, Agri- Business and Agri-Science; and eliminating 2.5 library aide positions; as well as the transportation supervisor and safety service coordinator/ truancy officer positions. Pay-to-Participate for all non-credit extra-curriculars will also be added to the mix. Superintendent Jeff Price said the administration will work with the board to solve the district’s forecasted finan- cial shortfalls. “We will work as a team to decide how we will proceed. We will take what the vot- ers have said and see what, as a community, they will support,” Superintendent Jeff Price said. “We will contin- ue to educate the youth of Delphos the best we can with the resources we are given. I do want to thank those in the community who did sup- port us and the Families Take Action for all the hard work they put into this levy.” The school board’s Finance Committee will meet at 8 p.m. Thursday to look at the district’s finances. The board will meet in regular session at 8 p.m. Monday. See election results, page 3.

Putnam library levy fails


OTTAWA — Voter angst over economic difficulties lay in the background as a library levy proposal here was defeated 8,581 to 4,663. The state has cut library fund- ing in recent years, prompting the measure’s ballot place- ment. Executive Director Kelly Ward said this morn- ing she does not know if the board will try again. She said the organization’s future will depend on a ripple effect to begin with Governor-elect John Kasich’s first biennial budget. “Where we go from here will depend on what the leg- islature does in July. We are

now solely dependent on the state, so we will have to wait and see what it decides to do with library funding. Everything will hinge on the legislature and our board of directors,” she said. Closing branches and con- solidating resources to its Ottawa library may or may not be considered; Ward said that, too, will be up to her board of directors. For now, she credits the defeat to the public being ill-informed. “I think there is a lot of misinformation out there that they chose to believe. A lot of people worked really, really hard on this levy cam- paign, so it’s really disap- pointing that it didn’t pass,” she said.

Huge volcanic blast spurs more Indonesians to flee

By SLAMET RIYADI The Associated Press

MOUNT MERAPI, Indonesia — Indonesia’s deadly volcano erupted today with its biggest blast yet, shooting searing ash miles into the air as soldiers forced hasty new evacuations of people from villages and emergency shelters. Women screamed and children cried as they were loaded into trucks while rocks and debris rained from the sky. Several abandoned homes were set ablaze and the carcasses of incinerated cattle littered the scorched slopes.

No new casualties were reported immediately after the booming explosion, which lasted more than an hour. “This is an extraordinary eruption, triple from the first” on Oct. 26, said Surono, a state volcanologist. More than 70,000 villag- ers have been evacuated from the 9,700-foot (3,000-meter) Mount Merapi’s once-fertile slopes since it began erupting just over a week ago, killing 38 people and injuring doz- ens, most with severe burns. There have been more than a dozen strong blasts since then — including one this

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — It was the jewel of Haiti’s post-earthquake recovery: an organized relocation camp with thousands of tents billed as hurricane-resistant, lined up in neat rows on graded moun- tain soil. Now, staring down an expected hit later this week from a hurricane, officials say Corail-Cesselesse is not safe. On Tuesday, the government advised the estimated 7,850 residents of its primary reloca- tion camp to ride out the storm somewhere else. “We’re asking people in Corail to voluntarily move from where they are and go to the houses of family or friends. The places the government has identified are churches and schools that are available for shelter from the storm,” Haiti civil protection official Abel Nazaire told The Associated Press. Camp managers held a “loudspeaker meeting” with megaphones to tell resi- dents about the evacuation order, said Bryant Castro, the American Refugee Committee staffer managing the camp. Residents were told to seek any home they could find and are expected to start leaving as soon today. A hurricane over the week- end, Tomas weakened to a tropical depression early today

US judge: no Argentine extradition in killings

BY CURT ANDERSON The Associated Press

MIAMI — A federal judge has denied Argentina’s extradi- tion request for a former mili- tary officer accused of taking part in a 1972 massacre of left- ist guerrillas in his homeland. The decision released Tuesday means, for now, that Roberto Bravo will not be returned to Argentina to face 16 murder charges arising from the killings at a military base near the southern Argentine city of Trelew. U.S. prosecutors said no decision had been made on a possible appeal. U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Dube ruled there are doubts about “the credibility, reliability and truthfulness” of

statements made by three survi-

vors shortly after the shootings. The three died in the 1970s, Dube noted, and “there has never been any way to test their allegations or subject them to cross-examination.” Dube also ruled that Bravo, now 68, had been cleared by

a military investigation at the

time and said he is covered by

an Argentine amnesty law that

applies to events prior to 1973, including the Trelew shootings. Argentina’s human rights office said Tuesday that it was aware of the ruling, and had no immediate comment. According to the deci- sion, the judge also found that Bravo’s actions could be justi- fied because they occurred as part of a political disturbance — an attempt by leftist guerril-

las to overthrow the Argentine government. Bravo has contended that the charges against him are part of an

effort by Argentina’s left-leaning government to seek revenge. “Because extradition requests are usually granted, this is a significant legal vic-

tory,” said Bravo’s attorney, Neal Sonnett, in a statement. “More important, however, is that it will allow Roberto Bravo

to close this unfortunate chapter

and resume his life.”

Bravo, formerly a lieutenant


the Argentine navy, has lived


South Florida since 1973 and

became a U.S. citizen in 1987. He has been free on $1.2 mil- lion bail and runs a company with several U.S. government contracts that places workers in health and security positions.


Two individuals went to prison Tuesday after appear- ing before Judge Charles D. Steele in Van Wert County Common Pleas Court on vio- lations of community control and a treatment program vio- lation. Haley J. Moser, 20, Van Wert, who had originally entered guilty pleas to two counts of possession of drugs and then was placed in an intervention program for drug rehabilitation was sent to pris- on for 10 months for violating the treatment program. Moser went into a long dissertation as to how she has realized that she has a serious drug problem and how she had plans to go to school and turn her life around. Judge Steele didn’t buy into her plan that she put forth and advised her that she had an attitude problem. Judge Steele told her that he had been made aware that she had caused numerous problems at the jail and had even provided another inmate some of her prescription med- ication. Judge Steele gave her cred- it for 73 days for which she had spent in jail on the origi- nal charges. Jason Grunden, 30, Van Wert, was sent to prison for 12 months on a charge of vio- lating his community control for not making court costs and restitution payments, fail- ing to report as required and not maintain a job as was

required. Judge Steele gave Grunden credit of 41 days of time he served on the original charge. Theodore Bleeke, 25, Van Wert, was resentenced to five years of community control

and ordered held in jail for up

to 12 months or until he could

enter the Elvis House program

in Columbus, which is a sex

offender program. Bleeke had violated the terms of his community con- trol by having in his posses- sion pornographic material. Assistant Prosecuting

Attorney Kevin Taylor asked the court to keep Bleeke in

jail for the safety of the com- munity. Bleeke had originally been indicted on charges of dis- seminating matter harmful to juveniles and the illegal use of minors in nudity-oriented material or performance. Dan J. Swoveland, 56, Ohio City, was placed on one year of community control on a charge of domestic violence,

a misdemeanor of the first

degree. Swoveland allegedly caused or attempted to cause harm to his wife on July 14 at their home. Judge Steele also gave Swoveland a 180-day jail sen-

tence and a fine of $1,000 with the imposition of the jail and fine being deferred pend- ing the successful completion

of the community control pro-


Dustyn James Franklin Taylor was sentenced to pris-

on on two separate indictments charging him with two counts of possession of drugs and three counts forgery. Taylor was given a basic prison term

six months on each count to

run concurrently.

In a separate indictment,

Taylor was given a one year prison sentence on charges of possession of drugs and forg-

ery, this prison term is to run consecutive to the six months sentence. Taylor was given credit for 53 days time he had served in jail awaiting final disposition

of the charges.

Taylor was ordered to

make restitution to the victims

in these cases. Kody N. Detwiler, 20,

Van Wert, was placed on three years of community control and ordered to spend up to six months in the WORTH Center on charges of Burglary

a felony of the fourth degree. Detwiler was ordered to

spend up to 30 days in jail at

a time to be determined by

his supervision officer, pay

restitution to the victim, have

a substance abuse assessment

and pay all cost associated with his case. Judge Steele also gave Detwiler a basic prison term of nine months but deferred the imposition of the prison sentence pending the success- ful completion of the commu- nity control program.

Boehner wants to shelve health care ‘monstrosity’

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republican Leader

John Boehner today claimed the Obama administration’s health care over- haul was a “mon- strosity.” The presump- tive next speak- er of the House told reporters this morning the Republican take- over of the House and its success in narrowing the Democratic


was proof that “the Obama-Pelosi agenda” was rejected by the American people. “I think that it’s a mandate for Washington to reduce the size of government and con- tinue our fight for smaller, less costly and more account- able government,” Boehner said. While the Ohio Republican spoke of popular opposi- tion to the health care law, a national exit poll found that voters were split on the issue, with nearly half calling for its repeal and a roughly equal number saying it should either be expanded or left as is. “We have a big job ahead of us and that’s why you’ll see us roll up our sleeves and go

and that’s why you’ll see us roll up our sleeves and go Boehner were about majority







ernment takeover of health care.” He added, “I think it’s important for us to lay the groundwork before we begin to repeal this mon- strosity.” Cantor, R-Va., who is in line to become the next majority leader, echoed Boehner. He said voters made clear they thought the Obama administration’s agenda over the last 20 months has failed. “They have rejected that approach,” Cantor said, “and they want to see us return to a sense of limited government and that means, as the leader just said, cut spending and get us back to an era in which we can promote opportunity.”

state funds. Cashing in on a backlash against President Barack Obama in the swing state critical to his hopes for a second term in two years, two Republicans won seats that were vacated by their officeholders. Jon Husted took the open secretary of state seat currently held by the Democrats. Dave Yost retained the open auditor’s office for the GOP. Kasich, Husted and Yost will sit on the powerful appor- tionment board, which will draw the state legislative map. In the Ohio House, Democrats said they had lost

their majority following two years of being in power. The shift puts Republicans, who already had a wide margin in the state Senate, in charge of the Ohio Legislature. Voters also picked a Republican to head the Ohio Supreme Court, electing Justice Maureen O’Connor as chief justice to oust Eric Brown, the court’s only Democrat who was appoint- ed in April. Justice Judith Ann Lanzinger, a Republican, defeated Democratic chal- lenger Mary Jane Trapp, an 11th District presiding/ administrative judge. The Associated Press contributed to this story.

others. In local villages, levies and issues were placed on the ballot with some outcomes nearly being decided before the final tally, while a few others came right down to the wire. All the results are unof- ficial. West Unity’s 1-mill parks levy passed with a vote of

313 (63.23 percent) for to 182

(36.77) against. The board will now be able to make improvements to Friendship, Memorial and Wabash parks. Unlike West Unity, Montpelier’s Parks and Recreation Board saw its bid for a one-tenth percent income tax come up short. Residents voted 590 (56.79

Weed-backers to try again

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Californians heeded warn- ings of legal chaos and other dangers and rejected a ballot measure Tuesday that would

have made their state the first

to legalize marijuana for rec-

reational use. The spirited campaign over Proposition 19 pitted the state’s political and law enforcement establishment against determined activists

seeking to end the prohibition

of pot.

It was by far the high- est-profile of the 160 ballot measures being decided in 37 states. Other topics included abortion, tax cuts and health care reform. On a night of conserva- tive advances in much of the country, Massachusetts vot- ers spurned a chance to cut their taxes — rejecting a pro- posal to lower the state sales tax from 6.25 percent to 3 percent. Critics said the cut would have forced the state to

slash $2.5 billion in services, including local aid to cities and towns. In Colorado, voters deci- sively defeated an anti-abor- tion “personhood” amendment — similar to one rejected in 2008 — that would have given unborn fetuses human rights

in the state constitution.

California’s marijuana proposal would have allowed adults 21 and over to possess up to an ounce of pot, con- sume it in nonpublic places as long as no children were

present, and grow it in small private plots. It would have authorized local governments

to permit commercial pot cul-

tivation, as well as the sale and use of marijuana at licensed establishments. Proponents pitched it as

a sensible, though unprece- dented, experiment that would provide much-needed revenue for the cash-strapped state, dent the drug-related violence in Mexico by causing pot prices to plummet, and reduce

marijuana arrests that they say disproportionately target minority youth. However, every major

newspaper, both political par- ties, the two candidates for governor and all but a handful of leading politicians came out against it.


nized that legalizing marijua-

na will not make our citizens

healthier, solve California’s budget crisis, or reduce drug- related violence in Mexico,” said the White House drug czar, Gil Kerlikowske. Instead, he said, legaliza- tion would lead to more addic-

tion, driving accidents and emergency room admissions. Federal officials also said they would have continued enforcing laws against mari- juana possession and sales had the measure passed. Prop 19 supporters blamed the outcome on the older, more conservative leanings of

voters who participate in mid- term elections and pledged to try again in two years. “It’s still a historic moment

in this very long struggle to

end decades of failed marijua- na prohibition,” said Stephen Gutwillig, California director for the Drug Policy Project. “Unquestionably, because

of Proposition 19, marijuana legalization initiatives will be on the ballot in a number of states in 2012, and California

is in the mix.”

Kasich win fueled by angst

JOHN SEEWER The Associated Press

He saw huge losses this time around among voters 65 or older and indepen- dents. Suburban residents and wealthy voters also abandoned the governor in his re-election bid. Women and middle- income voters — swing groups that Strickland won by a large margin in 2006 — were roughly divided between the two. Strickland and Kasich split the vote among seniors even though the governor warned that Kasich had spoken pub- licly as a lawmaker about his support for privatizing Social Security. Around the state, Kasich won among suburban resi- dents who accounted for a little less than half of all vot- ers in the state and the two

split the vote in Ohio’s small cities and rural areas. Strickland spent much of his campaign saying that Kasich displays “Wall Street values” because he is a for- mer Lehman Brothers manag- ing director. But voters didn’t make the connection. About one-third of Ohio voters said Wall Street bank- ers were to blame for the cur-

rent economic problems — though about half of those people backed Kasich. Strickland did manage to break about even with Kasich with two groups struggling to get by — voters who live in a house with someone who been laid off in the last year and those who are worried someone in their family will lose a home to foreclosure.

In the race for Ohio’s open U.S. Senate seat, Republican Rob Portman’s strong sup- port among key swing groups, including independents, helped him win. The former congressman from Cincinnati also did well with middle age voters and those at retirement age, according to preliminary exit poll results for The Associated Press. The economy weighed heavily on the minds of vot- ers. Ohio has lost 400,000 jobs since 2006. Unemployment hasn’t dipped below 10 per- cent this year and has stayed above the national average. The state also set a record in 2009 for foreclosures. Almost every voter indi- cated they’re worried about the direction of the nation’s economy in the next year and just under half said they’re concerned that a family mem- ber could lose their home to foreclosure. Nearly two-thirds said the economy was the top issue in the election. The survey of Ohio vot- ers was conducted for AP by Edison Research. This includes results from inter- views with 3,367 voters from

a random sample of 45 pre-

cincts statewide Tuesday; 450 who voted early or absentee were interviewed by landline

or cellular telephone from Oct. 22 through Oct. 31. Results

for the full sample were sub- ject to sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points;

it is higher for subgroups.

COLUMBUS — Republican John Kasich won big among Ohio’s indepen- dents and conservatives and whittled away a sizable chunk of Democratic incumbent Gov. Ted Strickland’s sup- porters from four years ago to capture the state’s governor’s race. Ohio’s lousy economy played a big role in why Strickland lost after winning in 2006 with the promise of turning around the state’s job situation. Kasich beat Strickland among those who think the

country is going in the wrong direction and are worried about the direction of the economy in the coming year, according

to preliminary exit poll results

for The Associated Press. Kasich, a believer in

smaller government and lower taxes, had a slight edge among those who called the economy the nation’s most pressing issue. The former Fox News

commentator who says his political views were like the “tea party before there was

a tea party,” won four out of

five votes from people who call themselves tea party sup- porters. Roughly 4 in 10 Ohio vot- ers consider themselves con- servative. Strickland won easily four years ago so it’s no surprise his support dropped among several groups in this year’s close race.

AP Analysis

Obama and Boehner need each other now

By LIZ SIDOTI The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — This is a two-person, two-party town now. And President Barack Obama, a Democrat, and incoming House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, need each other — as both

partners and foils while they push their own legislative agendas and lay the ground-

work for the 2012 elections. The unlikely duo must find areas of compromise to get something — anything, really — done to appease an unhappy electorate demand- ing economic stability from

a government voters don’t

think works. At the same time, each leader must figure

out how to use the other to draw partisan contrasts that will fire up their respective political bases. Both risk the wrath of vot-

ers in two years if they fail on either task; nothing short of Obama’s re-election, the Republicans’ newfound grip on power and the country’s economic well-being is at stake. The first glimpses of how they will position themselves come today, when each lead- er addresses the public in the wake of Republicans winning control of the House and cut- ting deeply into Democrats’ Senate majority. A third leader, Sen. Harry Reid, weighed in early today, saying he was ready to reach

across the aisle for accom- modation. The Democrat, who sur- vived a tough challenge in Nevada from tea party-backed Republican Sharron Angle, told NBC’s “Today” show he planned to speak today with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell on ways to “build a consensus and move this country along.” Reid said he has a “good relationship”withMcConnell, but said he asked Republicans to be more open to compro- mise, telling ABC’s “Good Morning America” that “just saying no doesn’t do the trick.” Striking a collegial tone

late Tuesday, Obama bowed to the new reality of divid- ed government in a brief phone call late Tuesday, tell- ing Boehner he was “look- ing forward to working with him and the Republicans to find common ground, move the country forward and get things done for the American people.” Boehner, in turn, sug- gested the GOP’s coopera- tion was conditional, saying:

“We hope President Obama will now respect the will of the people, change course and commit to making the changes they are demanding. To the extent he is willing to do this, we are ready to work with him.” Rhetoric aside, the onus is on Republicans and Democrats alike to prove to Americans who are sour

on both political parties that Washington isn’t broken. In short: Both Obama and Boehner need to show results to keep their jobs in 2012 and, in a split government, the only way to get results is to compromise. Nothing will get done in Washington without the two meeting somewhere in the middle. And from there, divides also will have to be bridged in the Senate, which will have nearly as many Republicans as Democrats. Could this two-party gov- ernance force politicians with diametrically opposite viewpoints to find common ground? Maybe. There’s no doubt Obama’s predicament will invoke com- parisons to presidents who also faced a Congress run by the opposition party. But for all the similarities, there are stark differences, too. In the 1990s, Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich partnered to enact welfare reform. But the Republican House speaker then was a personally polarizing figure — one who alienated the electorate — in a way that Boehner is not, at least not now. Unlike Obama and Boehner, Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neill easily devel- oped an amicable relationship that took the edge off their partisan differences in the 1980s. But even Reagan had to moderate his conservative ideas after Republican losses in the House.

Voters carry anxiety, rage to the polls

By ERIN McCLAM The Associated Press

The millions of Americans voting in midterm elections Tuesday were not always sure what they wanted, or even whom. But many knew they were unhappy — uneasy about the economy, frustrat- ed with the direction of the

country and dissatisfied with politics. On an Election Day that seemed a long way from 2008, disappointment was the theme. “I’d like to find somebody to blame,” said Kimberly Abrudan, a customer service

manager who had voted at

a Delaware charter school

for Democrat Chris Coons for Senate. “It would make

things a lot easier. But I’m not convinced that it’s any one man.” Abrudan said she voted for Barack Obama and felt

let down that he had not been

able to bridge the partisan

divide and bring Americans

together. If she could speak to the president in private, she conceded, “I might shake him around a bit.” The sentiment was not hard to find across the country in an election that took place against a backdrop of per- sistently high unemployment, no sign of real improvement in the economy and politics roiled by division. Vicki Goode of Boyle County, Ky., had voted for Obama as well, and said she felt disappointed by his first two years in office and by what she characterized as a legislative logjam in Washington. “I expected more sweep-

ing change,” she said after voting for Jack Conway, the Democratic candidate for Senate, over tea party-backed Republican Rand Paul. Goode owns a gift store called Magnolia Cottage. Fewer people are buying gifts than they did two years ago, and those who come in aren’t browsing as much — just

finding what they want and buying that one thing. Her husband was out of work for 16 months. Just about everywhere, this election felt far removed from the last. Two years ago, after all, there was no tea party. Now it’s a force in American politics. Two years ago, the nation was in finan- cial shock. Now hard times are all too familiar. “You still have a lot of people out of work,” said James Price, a lawyer in Indianapolis who voted a straight Republican ticket. “We’re losing a lot of jobs. We have massive amounts of debt.” In Denver, there were those like Josie Hart-Genter, who said the administration had done exactly what it promised to — expand health care and pass an economic stimulus bill — and were proud. And those like Javier Flores, who wished Obama had been more aggressive on gay rights.

I told them to come back tonight for supper. 1:30 p.m. — I fix a late lunch of homemade vegeta- ble soup and bar- becued beef sand- wiches. 2:15 p.m. — Elizabeth and I start getting in the laundry to fold and put away. The other girls fin- ish the weekly cleaning. Joe and the boys are finish- ing up in the barn. Earlier while Joe and Betty were here, we had some anxious moments when the horses got out through an open gate in the barn. The three horses and our pony found their way out and started down the road to our hay field. They were busy eating in the hay field and didn’t want to go into the fenced in pasture. I guess they thought the grass looked greener on the other side of the fence. 4:30 p.m. — Joe and Betty are back. They got to visit with Jacob and Emma but Verena and Susan were not home. I mixed together a meatloaf and made scalloped potatoes. The girls start helping the younger ones get cleaned up. 5:15 p.m. — The meat- loaf and the scalloped pota- toes are in the oven. The rest of us get cleaned up.

I thought I would share

a diary of a recent day with you readers. 6:30 a.m. — It is

Saturday, October 30. Today

is my oldest brother, Amos‘s,

49th birthday. I can always remember his age because

he is 10 years older than I am. Brother-in-law Jacob will be 38 on Monday. It is time to start another day.

It feels good to have

heat in the house

on this chilly morn- ing. My husband Joe started our coal stove in the base- ment on Thursday and it makes the house more comfortable.

7:45 a.m. — We have breakfast that consists of fried eggs and potatoes, bacon, cheese, toast, butter, straw- berry jam, milk and cider. Mornings like this are always special when we can all eat a relaxing meal together and do not have to think of anyone needing to leave. 8:45 a.m. — Daughter Elizabeth, 16, and I start gathering laundry to wash. The other girls wash dishes and start the weekly cleaning. Joe and the boys are cleaning out the barn and the horse- stalls. Joe needs to get our one-horse manure spreader fixed so he can spread the manure in the gardens and fields. 12:30 p.m. — We finally have the laundry all done. Elizabeth hung it all outside while I washed it. It is windy and some of the clothes don’t want to stay on the line. It is cold on the hands to hang up. I am sure one of these days it will be cold enough

hang up. I am sure one of these days it will be cold enough 6:30 p.m.

6:30 p.m. — Elizabeth’s friend Tim joins us for sup- per too. We have meatloaf, scalloped potatoes, corn, cheese, and peaches. I didn’t get time to get anything baked because we were just too busy. I don’t like to do laundry on a Saturday but Joe, Elizabeth and I decided to go have lunch with the children at school yesterday so we couldn‘t do it then. We picked up sister Emma, daughter Elizabeth and son Steven along the way. Joe didn’t have any work and will be off all of next week too. 8 p.m. — Joe and Betty left and we are all ready to call it a day. Elizabeth and Tim leave to join the other youth at the local community center. God’s blessings to all.

Three generations of Stockwells celebrated the Delphos Vikings’ championship-game romp over the St. Marys Broncos Sunday at Skip Baughman Stadium: assistant coach Jeff Stockwell, a Vikings’ “graduate”, current player Jace Stockwell and long-time head coach Jim Stockwell, who won his fourth Tri-County Midget Football Association title.

Jim Stockwell reaches milestone in midget football



DELPHOS — Jim Stockwell has been coach- ing in the Tri-County Midget Football Association a long time. He just finished his 42nd year as a coach in the system, his 40th as the head man of the Delphos Vikings. That’s a long time in any sport at any level. “It never gets old. The kids keep me coming back and I will stick around as long as no one kicks me out or fires me,” he said. As long as I’m healthy, I’ll continue to coach because of them and the enjoyment I get from them. “What I like the most is watching a 9-year old develop along and become a 12-year- old, then watching him play at the high school level.” He won his fourth title as head man of the Vikings with Sunday’s 36-0 romp over the St. Marys Broncos. He

watched as his backfield tan- dem of Hunter Binkley scored the first two touchdowns — finishing off a solid 2010 campaign — and then took even more pleasure as his grandson, Jace, threw three touchdown passes to Adam Rode to finish the game off. The defense pitched a shutout as well to add to the proceedings. “We were figuring out my record; after the game Sunday, we found out that I was now 200-81-5 when I thought it was 199 wins or something. That’s a lot of games,” he added. “Again, it’s all about the players. It’s nice to be able to coach my sons in the past and now my grandson. I have a great-grandson that is about three years away from being eligible to play and my grandson tells me he wants me to coach him. We’ll see.” He was ably assisted this season by his son, Jeff, as well as Greg Gossman, Eric Wallace, Doug Fitch and Todd Teman.

Fall Classic a dud

I really thought the Fall

Classic would be a true fall classic — I think most major- league baseball fans did, too.

It turned out to be a dud,

not only on the field but in the TV ratings. Not that the Giants beat- ing the Rangers in 5 games is necessarily a bad thing but everyone expected the Rangers to put up more of a fight. Instead, they seemed to go down with a whimper. The Giants had some tra- dition on their side, though most of it was way back when they were still in The Big Apple and Hall-of-Famers like Willie Mays and Willie McCovey were part of the team. They did make it this far in 2002 but didn’t win. The Rangers really have nothing in comparison. Perhaps the old saying goes: you have to learn how to crawl before you can walk, etc. It’s one thing to win in the regular season, the divisional playoffs and even the LCS. It’s quite another when the spotlight is just on two teams. Still, Texas has a chance to have a long line of success, though it likely won’t be with ace pitcher Cliff Lee. Perhaps this loss will be a positive thing in the future, a lesson learned about what it takes to win at that level. The Giants are also poised for a long run with their deep pitching and a lot of castoffs and others not likely to get big heads. We have seen many a team be a flash in the pan because they simply can’t handle suc- cess and let things go to their heads; they believe their press clippings. Now we see what will hap- pen as the free-agency peri-

od begins to heat up. What kind of money will be tossed around once the bidding begins — outside of the New York Yankees, who throw it around like water — and per- haps the economy again rears its ugly head, as well as an expected less-then-marquee list? What I had forgotten last




What I had forgotten last JIM METCALFE Metcalfe’s Musings week is that not only is foot-

week is that not only is foot- ball facing an uncertain labor market next season but the NBA is also looking deep into an abyss. It seems as if the NBA owners are even more hell- bent on a lockout — or the players are hell-bent on forc- ing one. The coming months may not be the best of times for fans of any of the three major professional sports leagues. With baseball beginning its collective bargaining process next year, there is a really serious chance you could have all three sports locked out or striking. Will they never learn? So, Randy Moss has been waived by the Minnesota Vikings. How sad is that? He admits that he plays hard only when he wants to — and yet he wants to be paid gazillions of dollars!!!! That is one argument against guaranteed money!!! As a fantasy owner of the erstwhile Patriot and Viking, I have been frustrated by his antics this season; he’s killing me! NO one could have seen this fiasco coming. He may be radioactive for the Raiders, the Cowboys or even the Bengals. What coach will be the first fired in the NFL? Will Jones can Wade Phillips? How about the players that flat-out quit in Sunday’s game against Jacksonville? That effort was atrocious and the players should be embarrassed. Will owner Mike Brown fire Marvin Lewis in the Queen City? He has been awfully silent over the last few years but one wonders if that will continue. How about in Buffalo, who has yet to win a game this season?

Green Bears eliminate Big Green


FINDLAY — It was green all around Elmer Graham Soccer Stadium Tuesday night as the Ottoville Big Green battled the Ottawa Hills Green Bears in a boys regional soccer tossup. It was all about opportuni- ties: those that were missed (Ottoville) and those that weren’t (Ottawa Hills) as the Green Bears ousted the Big Green 2-0. It was the second time in three years that Ottawa Hills (16-2-2) put out the Big Green (18-2) in the regional round. The Green and Gold seemed to have the better of the proceedings in the first half but could not get the orb past Green Bear sophomore keeper Michael Gieger (7 saves versus 10 shots). He dove to defend a shot by junior Sam Beining at


His leaping deflection of

a 25-yarder by junior Josh Schroeder at 2:12 seemed to galvanize the Green Bears. Ottoville senior Kyle Kroeger (4 saves vs. 7 shots) stopped three shots in the final 12 minutes of the first half, the best coming at 5:00 when he came off his line

to deflect away a shot from

the right wing by freshman Blake Pappas. “We had our chances, especially the first half and early in the second. We just couldn’t get the ball past Geiger; he is one of the best we’ve seen,” Big Green coach Eric Gerker observed. “Their defense helped him out a couple of times as well.

Our defense was great; our

game plan was to mark their forwards and not give them

a lot of space, which we did.

We played with great effort; we just couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net. Green Bears coach Francis Stephens credited his keep- er for keeping them in the game. “For a sophomore, he does very well back there. We seemed to get some ener- gy from his saves,” Stephens acknowledged. “Our prob- lem is that we are not a great

first-half team. I just told the players at the half to keep attacking and the chances will come.” The Big Green nearly went up 1-0 at 35:25 of the second half on a corner kick; senior Scott Pohlman’s header from 10 yards was heading to the goal when a defender headed it away just inches from the goal line. At 34:50, Geiger again made a diving save, this time on an 8-yarder header by

senior Nate Turnwald. He also stopped a 20-yard- er by senior Matt Honigford at 33:51. That seemed to send the Green Bears to another gear. They broke onto the board at 29:35 when junior Logan Glosser found sophomore Brandon Zakeri, who made

out outstanding move to get

a look from the left wing and

went over the keeper to the right side from 15 yards and

a 1-0 edge. “You just have to credit a player that can volley the ball up over a defender, go get it

and put it in the net. That was

a great move,” Gerker said. Kroeger kept it there at 25:03 when he stopped a

we had to push forward a little harder and that’s what led to their second goal.” The Big Green had two chances to snap the shutout:

at 10:09 and 10 seconds; but Geiger denied Honigford and

Pohlman was just wide right. “We didn’t get a lot of

shots against Ottoville but we got the two to go,” Stephens added. “I didn’t like our defensive shape the first half and we addressed that at the half. We were a lot better overall the second half. I don’t like to substitute a lot during the tournament, so it

means our guys have to go more minutes. I credit them for not letting down.” Ottawa Hills will battle Creston Norwayne at 3 p.m. Saturday at Ashland High School.

Halim, while Turnwald was denied by the keeper from 14 yards at 18:02. However, a defensive breakdown proved costly to the Big Green at 16:35. On

a free kick from the right

sideline from their own terri- tory, Abdel-Halim launched

it and the ball got through

to Pappas on the left side well within Ottoville space. He fired from the left wing

and his 16-yarder got by the

keeper for a 2-0 lead. “Our scouting report told

us to attack them and we did.

Some coaches might tell you

to play a defensive match but

we attacked,” Gerker added. “When we didn’t score on the header early in the second

half — it was right there — that was frustrating. When they scored their first goal,

The Associated Press WASHINGTON — John Wall had 29 points, 13 assists, nine steals and eight turnovers in his home debut, outshining fellow rookie Evan Turner as Washington beat Philadelphia 116-115 in overtime Tuesday night in the first matchup of the top two picks in this year’s draft. No. 1 choice Wall’s eventful game gave the Wizards their first win of the season. Cartier Martin caught Wall’s inbounds pass and hit a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game into overtime. No. 2 pick Turner, who came off the bench and wasn’t a factor until the second half, scored all of his nine points in the fourth quarter and finished with six rebounds for the 76ers, who are 0-4 for the first time since 2001-02. Lou Williams led the 76ers with

30 points, one shy of his career-

high. Celtics 109, Pistons 86 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. —

Rajon Rondo had nine points and

17 assists to lead Boston.

Kevin Garnett scored 22 points and Paul Pierce added 21 for Boston, which won easily despite Shaquille O’Neal’s absence because of a bruised knee. The Celtics hardly

missed him against the undersized Pistons, who are off to their first 0-4 start since November 1999. Charlie Villanueva scored 17 points for Detroit, which played without Richard Hamilton, who was out with a sore right foot. Lakers 124, Grizzlies 105 LOS ANGELES — Kobe Bryant scored all of his 23 points in the first half and Pau Gasol had 21 points and 13 rebounds for Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Lamar Odom had 17 points and eight rebounds for unbeaten Los Angeles, while Bryant fell one minute short of matching Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to become the Lakers’ franchise leader in minutes played because he sat out the fourth quarter. Rudy Gay scored 30 points and Mike Conley had 16 points and eight assists after agreeing to a 5-year, $40 million contract

extension earlier Tuesday with the Grizzlies, who opened a 4-game road trip with their fourth straight road loss to the 2-time champions. Hawks 100, Cavaliers 88

CLEVELAND — Marvin Williams scored 22 points, Al Horford added 16 and 12 rebounds for Atlanta, the only undefeated team in the Eastern Conference after their fourth straight win.

Jamal Crawford added 16 points and Joe Johnson and Mike Bibby had 15 apiece for the Hawks, who improved to 3-0 on the road and snapped a 6-game losing streak in Cleveland. J.J. Hickson scored a career- high 31 points and Mo Williams scored 12 in his season debut for the Cavs, who have dropped three

straight since knocking off Boston in their season opener. Heat 129, Timberwolves 97 MIAMI — Dwyane Wade had

26 points, LeBron James added 20

points and a game-high 12 assists — the most ever by a Heat forward, according to STATS LLC — and

Miami rolled to its fourth straight win. Wade made 12-of-17 shots in just 24 minutes for Miami, which has outscored opponents by 22.8 points per game since losing the season-opener in Boston last week. James Jones hit five 3-pointers and scored 17 points for the Heat, who got 15 from Eddie House,

13 from Chris Bosh and 11 from

Udonis Haslem.

Kevin Love led Minnesota with

20 points on 7-for-11 shooting. It was Miami’s highest-scoring

non-overtime game since beat-

ing Phoenix 135-129 on March 4,


Trail Blazers 90, Bucks 76 MILWAUKEE — Wes Matthews scored 16 of his 18 points in the first half to help Portland end its 4-game road trip with a victory. Brandon Roy added 17 points, LaMarcus Aldridge 14, Dante Cunningham 14, Andre Miller 12 and Armon Johnson 10 for Portland, which was playing its third game in four nights. Corey Maggette led the Bucks with 16 points. Leading 47-45 at halftime,

Portland capitalized on the Bucks’ poor shooting and porous defense to outscore Milwaukee 26-17 and take a 73-62 lead into the final quarter. It was the first time that the Blazers led going into the final period this season. Magic at Knicks, ppd. NEW YORK — The Orlando- New York game at Madison Square Garden was postponed because of safety concerns after debris fell into the arena during overnight cleaning

of asbestos-related materials. The work was done by main- tenance staff in the attic above the

ceiling following the New York Rangers’ game and prevented work- ers from laying down the hardwood floor. The ice surface was still

down as of Tuesday afternoon.

The Associated Press COLUMBUS — Mathieu Garon stopped 29 shots for his 17th career shutout, extending his strong play at home in leading the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 3-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night. Rick Nash, Derick Brassard and Kyle Wilson had goals and Jake Voracek added two assists for the Blue Jackets, who have won 6-of-8. Garon, a second-round pick by the Canadiens in the 1996 draft, played three seasons for Montreal. He improved to 8-0-4 in home games since joining Columbus as a free agent in 2009. The Canadiens were shut out for the second time this season. Carey Price made 21 saves. Wild 1, Sharks 0 ST. PAUL, Minn. — Niklas Backstrom stopped 36 shots, Andrew Brunette scored the game’s only goal and Minnesota shut out the power- ful San Jose Sharks. The Sharks held an 18-4 shots advantage midway through the second but found themselves trailing after Brunette scored a 5-on-3 goal with 7 minutes left in the period. The Wild killed five power plays, highlighted by a key stop with 7 minutes remaining in the third. The Sharks entered as the top power-play team in the NHL at 31.6 percent.

It was Backstrom’s first shutout since March 3 at Calgary. Senators 3, Maple Leafs 2 TORONTO — Sergei Gonchar and Erik Karlsson scored power-play goals 2:26 apart in the second period as Ottawa beat slumping Toronto. Mike Fisher had the other goal for the Senators on a penalty shot. Brian Elliott appeared poised to become the third straight goalie to blank the Maple Leafs until Francois Beauchemin trickled a point shot by him at 5:15 of third period. That ended the team’s goal drought at 167 minutes, 39 seconds, the franchise’s longest in 83 years, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Clarke MacArthur also scored for the Maple Leafs, who have man- aged only nine goals while going 1-5-1 in their last seven games. Toronto captain Dion Phaneuf left in the second period with an apparent injury to his left leg. Canucks 4, Oilers 3 EDMONTON, Alberta — Raffi Torres had a hat trick against his former team and Vancouver withstood a late charge to beat Edmonton for its fourth straight win. Daniel Sedin also scored for the Canucks (6-3-2). Dustin Penner, Ryan Jones and Gilbert Brule scored for the Oilers
