Ryan uses tank plant to connect with Lima audience

the first stop on a bus tour across Ohio. Presidential hopeful Mitt Romneys running mate used President Barack Obamas plan of deep military cuts and his proposal to shut down the Joint Systems Management Center, an Allen County employer of 800 and the only tank plant in the country, to get the crowds attention. Look, Lima, I know you understand when you have a president who has proposed again and again to shut down this tank factory the only one we have over a budget gimmick, the Wisconsin lawmaker said. If we keep doing this, if we keep showing that the only thing we want to do is gut our military, that projects weakness abroad. And by projecting weakness abroad, our adversaries are so much more tempted to test us and our allies are so much less willing to trust us. The White House has proposed suspending tank production because the Pentagon says it will soon have enough tanks. Some members of Congress are attempting to restore funding for the tanks and other military weapons in a defense spending bill, a move the White House has threatened to veto. The administration says adding more money to the budget will trigger deeper cuts because of an agreement made during a failed congressional attempt last year to reduce the deficit. Ryan voted for the automatic spending cuts that could trigger large cuts in the nations defense budget. Ohio Republicans have been critical of plans affecting the plant and say they wont save the government money. General Dynamics Corp.s land systems unit, which operates the governmentowned plant, estimates that the cost of shutting down the plant and then restarting it would be $1.6 billion while keeping it open with minimal production over four years would cost $1.4 billion. The Army puts the price of pausing production much lower around $400 million, the Associated Press has reported. Were not going to shut down the only tank plant we have in America. We need

Telling The Tri-Countys Story Since 1869

Delphos, Ohio peace through strength, Ryan said. A comment made by Romney was put under the spotlight Monday. Asked by a member of the audience to explain his running mates 47-percent remark, Ryan said, We want an opportunity society, not a welfare state. He said the Romney administrations measure of success would be not how many people are on food stamps but how many we get off of them. In his final push for the afternoon, Ryan said President Obamas statement in an interview on the Univision network last week that he cant change Washington from the inside was revealing. That is why you send presidents to Washington - to fix whats broken in Washington. Since hes admitted he cant change Washington, we need to change presidents, Ryan said. Recent polls in Ohio show Obama with a slight lead over Romney. The Associated Press contributed to this story.

Most Reverend Ottenweller dies

TOLEDO The Rev. Albert H. Ottenweller, a former auxiliary bishop for the Toledo Catholic Diocese and retired Steubenville bishop who was well known for his ministry among migrant workers, died Sunday in the Ursuline Center, Toledo, where he had lived since December, 2010. He was 96. The cause of death was not known, said the Rev. John Blazer, a close friend. Father Ottenweller was the first priest in the diocese to be ordained auxiliary bishop, a position he held from 1974 to 1977, when he was installed as bishop of the Steubenville Diocese. He had also served as an associate and pastor at churches in Northwest Ohio. A native of Leipsic, he was known for his compassion for others and ability to relate to the most common person. He was a humble, wise man, said Msgr. William Kubacki, diocesan vicar for priests. He just loved people. He

Seniors from Jefferson and St. Johns high schools were treated to the Rotary Walking Tour this morning. Twelve tour groups were herded by volunteer guides through the museums and historic sites of downtown Delphos. Doris Dickman, left, tells her group about the projector room of the old movie theater where she used to work as a high school student. If you ever wondered why old movies like The Ten Commandments had an intermission in the middle, it was so they could wind the film for the second half, Dickman said. Some of the other sites on the tour include the old Walsh and Remlinger buildings (now H&R Block and the Delphos Club, respectively), Lock 23 and the old city building, now the police and fire departments. All groups convened at the VFW for lunch. See more photos in Thursdays Herald.

Obama targeting Report: Premium hikes for Ohio college voters top Medicare drug plans
By JOHN SEEWER and THOMAS J. SHEERAN The Associated Press TOLEDO President Barack Obama is making a big push to drum up enthusiasm among college students and young adults in Ohio, a group he won by a wide margin four years ago and will need again in November. Obama will visit two college campuses in northern Ohio today, first stopping at Bowling Green State University and then at Kent State University for rallies in the schools basketball arenas. The presidents trip back to Ohio comes as the Republican ticket wraps up a three-day bus tour of the state. GOP challenger Mitt Romney campaigned in Dayton on Tuesday, and hell be in suburban Columbus and Cleveland today before making a final stop later in the day in Toledo. Most recent polls show Obama with a slim lead over Romney in Ohio, a state considered a must-win for both. A big part of Obamas strategy in Ohio and other key swing states is reaching out to young people on college campuses who are concerned about the rising costs of education, job opportunities and paying off student loans. Obama kicked off his reelection campaign with a rally in May at Ohio State University. In recent months, hes been at Capital University in Columbus and Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland. He says that he wants to make tax credits for college expenses permanent and expand Pell grants for students from lower-earning families. Romney counters that increasing federal student aid encourages tuition to go up and wants private lenders to return to the federal student loan program. He proposes eliminating duplicative federal college financial aid programs and giving Pell grants to students that need them most. Obama won two-thirds of the vote four years ago among college-age adults 18-24 and See OBAMA, page 2 By RICARDO ALONSOZALDIVAR The Associated Press WASHINGTON Seniors enrolled in seven of the 10 most popular Medicare prescription drug plans will be hit with double-digit premium hikes next year if they dont shop for a better deal, says a private firm that analyzes the highly competitive market. The report Monday by Avalere Health is a reality check on the Obamas administrations upbeat pronouncements. Back in August, officials had announced that the average premium for basic prescription drug coverage will stay the same in 2013, at $30 a month. The administrations number is accurate as an overall indicator for the entire market, but not very helpful to consumers individually since it doesnt reflect price swings in the real world. The average senior is going to benefit by carefully scrutinizing their situation, because every year the market changes, Avalere President Dan Mendelson said. Avalere crunched the numbers based on bid documents that the plans submitted to Medicare. The report found premium increases for all top 10 prescription drug plans, known as PDPs. However, the most popular plan AARP MedicareRx Preferred is only going up 57 cents per month nationally, to $40.42 from the current $39.85. The seven plans with double-digit premium increases were: the Humana WalmartPreferred Rx Plan (23 percent); First Health Part D Premier (18 percent); First Health Part D Value Plus (17 percent); Cigna Medicare Rx Plan One (15 percent); Express Scripts MedicareValue (13 percent); the HealthSpring Prescription Drug Plan (12 percent); and Humana Enhanced (11 percent). Another two plans in the top 10 also had single-digit increases. They were the SilverScript Basic (8 percent) and WellCare Classic (3 percent). On the plus side for consumers, a new low-cost plan

entered the market. Premiums for the AARP MedicareRx Saver Plus Plan will average $15 a month nationally, although it wont be available everywhere. Thats $3.50 less than the current low-cost leader, the Humana Walmart plan, whose premiums are rising to $18.50. The new AARP plan is run by UnitedHealth Group Inc., the nations largest health insurance company. United pays AARP for the right to use its name on a range of Medicare insurance products, a successful business strategy that has proven lucrative for both partners. When Humana and Walmart teamed up to offer their low-cost plan in 2011, United felt the competition. There is a real focus on the premium in this market, Mendelson said. If a plan fields an offering with a low premium, it knows it can capture a significant number of customers. Medicare spokesman Brian Cook did not dispute the Avalere estimates. We See HIKES, page 2

For The Record

than 17 million enrolled in private plans through the prescription drug program. President Barack Obamas 2010 health care law is improving prescription drug plans by gradually closing the coverage gap known as the doughnut hole for those with high prescription drug costs. The Avalare numbers did have one silver lining for the Obama administration. When the projections are tweaked to account for seniors switching to lower-cost coverage, premiums for 2013 are likely to remain steady. Separately, the administration recently announced at Youngstown State University, said he saw more political intensity two years ago during the Ohio governors race. Why? I dont think anyones happy with either of the two candidates, he said. I know Im not. At the College of Wooster south of Cleveland, Daniel Cohen, 20, said the mood is starting to change as the campaign heats up. Cohen, president of the college Democrats, said the Obama campaign has that average premiums for Medicare Advantage insurance plans will barely inch up next year on average, while enrollment in the private medical plans will continue to rise. Many Medicare Advantage plans also combine prescription drug coverage in one package deal. But the biggest premium announcement is yet to come. Virtually all seniors pay the Part B premium for outpatient care, including those with traditional Medicare as well as those in private plans. Currently $99.90 a month, the Part B premium it is expected to rise next year by less than $10. emphasized voter registration on campus. Obviously that demographic wins for them last time, so it probably is more likely to win for them this time, Cohen said. Michael Zickar, chairman of both the psychology department at Bowling Green State University and the Wood County Democratic Party, acknowledged that there was little excitement for Obama on campus up until the last few months.

Initially, they teamed up to form Vision Time, and, later, Servant Leadership Center, which nurtures individuals to find their skills and talents so they can use them for the welfare and betterment of the community. He really had a passion for seeing the church as the people of God and recognizing that in the circle we are all equal, said Sister Nancy, of the Tiffin Franciscan order. Bishop Ottenweller was born April 5, 1916, in Stanford, Mont. Father Blazer said his father, Charles Ottenweller was a blacksmith and moved from Indiana to Montana to start a shop there. After the business he returned to Indiana, and later moved to Leipsic, he said. He was very proud of his background and being the son of a blacksmith, Father Blazer said. He attended St. Mary Catholic School in Leipsic and left Leipsic to study at St. Joseph High School and later St. Joseph College in Rensselaer, Ind.

He was pastor for two years at St. Joseph Church, Blakeslee, in Williams County, and its mission, Sacred Heart of Montpelier. From 1962 to 1968 he was pastor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Bono, and also directed the Spanish-speaking apostolate for the diocese. As part of his migrant ministry he made it possible for priests to be released from pastoral work during the summer to teach religion classes in the migrant labor camp. He also directed a program that gave priests an opportunity for study in Mexico to learn the language and customs of that country for their work in Northwest Ohio. He returned to Delphos in 1968 to become pastor of St. John Church, serving in that role until he was appointed auxiliary bishop. He also was pastor of St. Michael Church in Findlay during the three years he was auxiliary bishop. Surviving are his sisters, Joan Pfahler, Phyllis Lowry, Rosaline Buescher, and Jane Brandt.

OSU hires accomplished fundraiser


Mandel vows 2-term Marion Township Trustees limit if elected senator

By ANN SANNER The Associated Press COLUMBUSRepublican candidate Josh Mandel vowed Tuesday to limit himself to two terms in office if he is elected U.S. senator this November, a move that comes as he tries to cast himself as a fresh face and his Democratic opponent as a career politician. His remarks to reporters at a rare news conference in Columbus were part of what he called a package of proposals aimed to clean up Washington. Mandel, the state treasurer, wants former members of Congress to give up their pensions if they become registered lobbyists. And if senators and representatives cant make spending and budget decisions on time, they shouldnt get paid on time either, he said. Hes also proposing 12-year term limits for members of the House and Senate. We have a crop of career politicians there who think they can live by one set of rules while all of us throughout the state and the country live by a different set of rules, he said. Democratic incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown is a part of the problem, he said, adding, Theres a whole crop of career politicians on both sides of the aisle whove let us down. Mandel, 34, is looking to tap into the rising anger directed at longtime politicians in Washington in the Nov. 6 election. Hes challenging Brown, 59, who began his political career in 1974 as the youngest state representative in Ohio history. A poll released Monday shows Brown with a slight edge over Mandel, 52 percent to 45 percent. Mandels plan would limit House members to six two-year terms and senators to two sixyear terms. Though, he said nothing would prevent politicians from moving from one chamber to the other after their 12 years end. Its unlikely the idea would get traction in Washington. Members of Congress have talked of self-imposed term limits, but proposals have gone nowhere. Mandel said he would adhere to the term limits, even if they didnt become law. Ive never lived in Washington, he told reporters. Ive never worked in Washington. I dont plan to spend the rest of my life in Washington. Mandel criticized Brown for breaking a term-limit promise and notify next of kin who might claim the remains. Were working on it as fast as information becomes available to us, he said. Betz said he hopes to complete the process in seven to 10 more days but that it depends on how quickly officials can reach the families. Thats more complicated when relatives arent listed and when the deaths date to the early 1990s, he said. He said two cemeteries offered to provide a crypt and permanent documentation for any of the remains that go unclaimed. The remains were found this month by a contractor hired to remove items from a house co-owned by former funeral director Scherrie McLin and another woman. The head of the state Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors has said investigators for the board found the when he was re-elected to a seventh term in the U.S. House in 2004. Brown said in 1992 that he supported a 12-year limit on congressional service. Ohio voters that year had approved limiting lawmakers to eight years. Frankly, Ive watched the state Legislature and ... Ive changed my mind, Brown said in 2004. He had argued term limits kept local lawmakers more focused on learning the ropes and being re-elected than dealing with problems such as school funding, health care and the budget. Browns campaign spokesman Justin Barasky called Mandels term-limit pledge a total joke. Mandel promised to serve a full four-year term as state treasurer when he was elected in 2010, but hes campaigning for the Senate, Barasky noted. No matter what job Josh Mandel has in elected office, he doesnt do it, Barasky said. He runs for the next one. Asked why voters should believe Mandel would limit himself to two Senate terms after he had said he would complete a full term as state treasurer, Mandel said, I will uphold it. You have my word. I will uphold it.

Made easy

DAYTON (AP) A newspaper analysis shows that tens of thousands of Ohioans left the welfare rolls this year, putting enrollment at its lowest point since the benefit for the poor was reformed in the 1990s. The Dayton Daily News reports that the drop does not necessarily reflect an improving economy. The largest single reason people left the welfare rolls is because officials are taking a harder stance on requiring people to perform work activities as required under law. That includes work, community service or job training for at least 30 hours a week. In the 12 months ending in July, state records showed the number of Ohio households receiving welfare and cash paid out dropped by 20 percent. There were 73,451 Ohio households in the program in July.

Ohio welfare rolls thinner this year

COLUMBUS (AP) School performance data delayed by a statewide attendance-tampering investigation is headed to Ohio districts. The Ohio Department of Education plans to release partial report card results today. The attendance rate, performance index and overall rating will be omitted. Spokesman John Charlton said the information should be posted on the departments web site by midday. The 19-member state school board cleared the delay last month, fearing that underlying data might be flawed. After allegations arose in three districts, state Auditor Dave Yost had launched a statewide investigation into whether low-performing students are improperly removed from the rolls to improve school performance rankings. Because a host of funding and programming decisions hinges on the data, the state board later voted to release portions of the report cards unaffected by Yosts probe.

Relatives claim cremated remains

COLUMBUS (AP) Fourteen families have claimed some of the cremated remains found at a southwest Ohio home that was under foreclosure and co-owned by a former funeral home director, and two cemeteries have offered to provide a crypt for the remains that go unclaimed, a coroners office said Tuesday. Some families came forward and officials contacted others after labeled, dated boxes containing the cremated remains of 56 people were found stored in a closet at a Dayton home last week, said Ken Betz, director of the Montgomery County Coroners Office. They were the same remains a state regulatory agency found last year at a funeral home that is now closed. Betz said officials are cross-referencing information, including autopsy and cremation documentation, to find

same remains at the McLin Funeral Home last October but didnt have authority to remove them. The board later revoked the licenses of McLin and the funeral home after a state investigation revealed violations of state laws and administrative codes, the board executive director said. Police Lt. Wendy Stiver said Tuesday that the investigation has been forwarded to the county prosecutors consumer fraud division, which would decide whether the case merits charges. She said police have not interviewed the women who owned the home.

The world cares very little about what a man or woman knows; it is what the man or woman is able to do.

Poll: Most see health law being implemented

The Associated Press WASHINGTON They may not like it, but they dont see it going away. About 7 in 10 Americans think President Barack Obamas health care law will go fully into effect with some changes, ranging from minor to major alterations, an Associated PressGfK poll finds. Just 12 percent say they expect the Affordable Care Act Obamacare to dismissive opponents to be repealed completely. The law covering 30 million uninsured, requiring virtually every legal U.S. resident to carry health insurance and forbidding insurers from turning away the sick remains as divisive as the day it passed more than two years ago. After surviving a Supreme Court challenge in June, its fate will probably be settled by the November election, with Republican Mitt Romney vowing to begin repealing it on Day One and Obama pledging to diligently carry it out. Thats what the candidates say. But the poll found Americans are converging on the idea that the overhaul will be part of their lives in some form, although probably not down to its last clause and comma. Forty-one percent said they expect it to be fully implemented with minor changes, while 31 percent said they expect to see it take effect with major changes. Only 11 percent said they think it will be implemented as passed. Americans also prefer that states have a strong say in carrying out the overhaul.
WASHINGTON (AP) Discover Bank will pay millions in fees to settle accusations by regulators that it pressured credit card customers to buy costly add-on services like payment protection and credit monitoring. Discover, the sixth-biggest U.S. credit card issuer, will pay a $14 million fine and refund $200 million directly to more than 3.5 million customers, federal authorities said Monday. The companys call-center workers enrolled customers in the programs without their consent, misled them about the benefits and left customers thinking the products were free, regulators said. The action was brought by the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Discover said this summer that it expected an enforcement action about

WASHINGTON (AP) Americans are growing more confident in the economy, an encouraging sign for President Barack Obamas prospects on the most pivotal issue in the presidential race. A new survey of consumer confidence rose to a seven-month high Tuesday on expectations that hiring will soon pick up. And a separate report showed home values rising steadily, signaling sustained improvement in housing. This is like an opinion poll on the economy without the political parties attached, said John Ryding, chief economist at RDQ Economics, a consulting firm. The confidence survey says people are feeling better. If so, they are less likely to vote for change. The Conference Boards index of consumer confidence shot up in September to the highest level since February. The jump surprised many economists because the most recent hiring and retail sales figures have been sluggish. The increased confidence could help explain recent polls that show Obama with a widening lead over Mitt Romney in some battleground states. The consumer confidence index is closely watched because consumer spending drives nearly 70 percent of economic activity. The index jumped from 61.3 for August to 70.3 for September. It remains well below 90, the level that is thought to signify a healthy economy.

Higher consumer confidence could help Obama

add-on products. It is only the third public enforcement action by the consumer bureau, which was created under the 2010 financial overhaul law to protect consumers from excessive or hidden fees and other financial threats. The first was a similar order against Capital One, another big issuer of cards. American Express also expects to pay refunds and fines related to add-on products, according to its most recent quarterly filing with regulators. Discover is part of Discover Financial Services. In a statement late Friday, chairman and CEO David Nelms said: We have worked hard to earn the loyalty of our cardmembers, and we are committed to marketing our products responsibly. Discovers telemarketing scripts included misleading

The poll found that 63 percent want states to run new health insurance markets called exchanges. They would open for business in 2014, signing up individuals and small businesses for taxpayer-subsidized private coverage. With many GOP governors still on the sidelines, the federal government may wind up operating the exchanges in half or more of the states, an outcome only 32 percent of Americans want to see, according to the poll. Finally, the poll found an enduring generation gap, with people 65 and older most likely to oppose the bill and those younger than 45 less likely to be against it. People are sort of averaging out the candidates positions, said Harvard School of Public Health professor Robert Blendon, who tracks polling on health care issues. The presidential candidates are saying theres a stark choice, but when you ask the voters, they dont believe that the whole bill will be repealed or implemented as it is today in law. Republicans remain overwhelmingly opposed to the overhaul and in favor of repeal. But only 21 percent said they think that will actually come about. Romney supporter Toni Gardner, 69, a retired school system nurse from Louisville, Ky., said that until a few weeks ago she was sure her candidate fully supported repeal, as she does. But then Romney said in an interview there are a number of things he likes in the law that he would put into practice, including making sure

that people with pre-existing medical problems can get coverage. The Romney campaign quickly qualified that, but the candidates statement still resonates. If Romney gets in, hell go with parts of it, Gardner said, and there are parts of that he wont go with. Gardner thinks expanding coverage will cost too much and may make it harder to get an appointment with a doctor. Besides, she doesnt believe the government can handle the job. Shes covered by Medicare a governmentrun health system but says that wasnt a choice that I had. At 26, Santa Monica, Calif., web developer Vyki Englert has only bare-bones health insurance coverage. Her parents, a preschool teacher and a self-employed photographer, are uninsured. Englert says she thinks the law will largely go into effect as passed. (Among 18- to 29-year-olds, 60 percent think it will be implemented with only minor changes or none at all.) Englert says that she supports guaranteeing coverage to people with health problems and that provisions such as broader coverage for birth control will help younger women such as her. I kind of see a day-to-day way where this law could benefit me, she said. Englert says the health care law dovetails with a trend toward consumerism in her generation. Older Americans dont have the context of the young people, she added. They are looking more at the theoretical impact on the budget and the country.
language that confused consumers about whether they were buying a product or just agreeing to consider it, the agencies said. They said telemarketers spoke quickly during the part of the call where the prices and terms of products are described. The order mentions four products sold by Discover: Payment Protection, Credit Score Tracker, Identity Theft Protection and Wallet Protection. Anyone who paid for those services between Dec. 1, 2007, and Aug. 31, 2011, will be repaid at least 90 days worth of fees. About 2 million customers will be repaid all of the fees they were charged. In addition to the refunds and fine, Discover agreed to change its telemarketing approach and employ an independent auditor to oversee its compliance with the order.

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON Ive written variations of this column a couple of times during the past 20 years, but certain occasions bear revisiting and surely the disappearance of a friend is one. Dail Dinwiddie was my sons baby sitter/nanny when she vanished on Sept. 24, 1992. He was 8 and she was 23. Hes now five years older than she was then and Dail would be 43. Police in Columbia, S.C., where she disappeared, recently released an updated photograph showing how they imagine Dail would look today, based in part on how her parents and brother have aged. The doctored photo shows an attractive middle-aged woman. Back then, Dail was a doll just 5 feet tall and not quite 100 pounds, a blithe spirit full of laughter. I could have tucked her under an arm without much strain. Apparently, someone else did. She was like any other girl that night a U2 concertgoer with a pack of friends who migrated afterward to a section of town, Five Points, where college students often congregate into the early morning hours. Just a few blocks from the University of South Carolina, Five Points is a friendly commercial intersection of restaurants, bars and boutiques. It is always daytime there, with nearly as

Once upon a disappearance

much foot traffic at 2 a.m. as at 2 p.m. Dail was last seen around 1:30 a.m. by a bouncer at one of the popular watering holes, Jungle Jims. She had become separated from her friends and asked the bouncer if hed seen them. He remembered watching Dail walk down the sidewalk toward another bar in the next block. The next afternoon, Dails mother called me to say Dail hadnt come home the night before and that I should meet my son at the bus stop. Hanging up, I wept. I knew Dail well enough to know that she would not just fail to come home without notifying her parents. She was too considerate for that. She certainly would never let her 8-yearold charge be left alone on a street corner. Something had happened to her. One does what one can in such situations, but what? Police dont usually begin looking for an adult for at least 24 hours because, statistically, most adults who disappear in this country leave of their own volition. But 24 hours is a long time, after which most clues are cold and the chances of finding someone greatly reduced. At the time, I had a work space in Bud Ferillos public relations office. Upon hearing what had happened, Bud offered his entire office telephones and staff to


Point of View
help organize a search effort. Ferillo is better known today as the documentary filmmaker who brought national attention to the dismal condition of South Carolina public schools with Corridor of Shame. Within a matter of days, we had hundreds of volunteers, mostly students, and thousands of fliers with Dails picture posted around South Carolina and, thanks to volunteer truckers, distributed in every state in the country. Her parents, Jean and Dan, appeared on a couple of talk shows. Dails friends re-enacted the night of her disappearance, hoping some useful clue would surface. Psychics dreamed of wooded lots, vacant houses and riverbeds. Amid the flurry of wellmeaning folks, some members of the community complained that they only mobilize when white girls disappear. Ive never been sure who the they are. Ive only had one friend disappear and I did what little I personally could. Even so, I

realized that the observation was not without merit. What does happen to other adults who vanish, I wondered? This question led to the establishment of a nonprofit organization, the Dail Dinwiddie Safe Streets Foundation, dedicated to helping police and families find the missing, as well as educating young people about the buddy system. Our efforts never resulted in a happy ending some of the missing were found dead, others in jail but at least families had a means to channel their horror in constructive ways. Just getting a missing family members picture in the newspaper was better than nothing. Eventually, the organization named for Dail dissolved. Board members died; volunteers grew up, got jobs and married. People moved on and the safe streets foundation became a stack of boxes in a corner of my office. Twenty years fly by when youre not looking for a missing child. The Dinwiddies are still looking for theirs. Someone reading this knows someone who knows something that could bring peace to the Dinwiddies. Perhaps, even you? Kathleen Parkers email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.

Loretta doing well

BY LOVINA EICHER I have 10 loaves of bread rising and daughter Susan is mixing two batches of ranger cookies. The cookies are being made to take along to church services on Sunday. Shell probably end up mixing another batch so we will have some to keep for ourselves. The boys picked the tomatoes last night and didnt even get a 5 gallon bucket full. Looks like they are slowing down fast. If I do get more I would like to make a batch of pizza sauce to put in jars. I still have plenty of green peppers so I could still use those. I went with husband Joe to see a doctor after he came home from work. He has been feeling very sick the last few weeks with wheezing, coughing, sinus congestion. After putting in our hay it seems to be worse. He wears a mask to cover his mouth and nose to put in hay but it still bothers him. The doctor told Joe it was allergies and the start of bronchitis. He prescribed an inhaler and medication which will help him get over this. This is starting to keep him awake at night so he finally decided it was time to see a doctor. He will be working 5 day weeks so he needs to keep his energy level up. Loretta went back to school on Tuesday and it went very well. She seems worn out in the evenings, though. She has a lot more patience with the cast than I would have. Her feet and legs get itchy and she cant scratch them. I still remember when I was young and had a broken arm. After a few weeks the arm would start itching and you couldnt scratch beneath the cast. I thought back then it was very miserable. Loretta really tries to do a lot for herself without our help. To get into bed she puts her wheelchair up to the bed and braces it. Then she puts her cast on the bed and scoots herself on the bed. By getting out of bed, she slides backward into her wheelchair. She has also figured out how to get her wheelchair to the toilet so she can go to the bathroom without help. She is determined to get better. Saturday our new Amish neighbors Joas and Susan and three daughters biked over to see Loretta. She was glad for their company. Sisters Verena and Susan came over for a few minutes to see how her surgery went. Neighbor Susan brought us apple fry pies and a pumpkin roll from her bakery. That was a treat for us since I didnt get any baking done that week. They operate a bakery where they used to live and will gradually move it over to their new home. Their daughters are the same age as our daughters and they seem to have made friends quickly. Daughter Elizabeth started working in the cabinet shop area of the trailer factory this week. Her job had been to do the caulking around the windows and wherever it was needed. Her hand broke out in a rash so bad, they think she was allergic to something she was working


with. It was pretty painful but it seems to be clearing up now. I will share my pizza sauce recipe with you this week: PIZZA SAUCE 1 /2 bushel tomatoes 4 garlic cloves 3 pounds onions, sliced Two green peppers 5 hot peppers 1 cup vegetable oil 12 3-ounce cans of tomato paste 1 cup sugar 1 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon sweet basil 1 tablespoon oregano 3 tablespoons pizza spice 1 /2 cup salt Cook tomatoes, garlic, onion and peppers until soft. Put through sieve. Add vegetable oil and cook 30 minutes. Add tomato paste, sugar, and seasonings. Simmer until it boils and thickens a little. Put in jars and seal and this makes 24 pints.

Jefferson subdues Paulding in NWC volleyball



DELPHOS Jeffersons volleyball team has shown steady improvement in the 2012 campaign. The Lady Wildcats took another step Tuesday night, downing Paulding 25-20, 18-25, 25-20, 25-18 in Northwest Conference action at Jefferson High School. Were showing signs of getting there. We are definitely improved, Jefferson coach Joy Early noted. Last night, we had a 5-setter (with Lima Temple Christian) where we were on one set and off the next. We were much more consistent tonight; we still have our moments but they are getting less as we move on. Paulding (2-11, 0-4 NWC) coach Todd Harmon figures the match was par for the course. We have been that close and we were that close tonight, he added. We lost a lot of seniors from last year but that is no excuse. We have girls that have roles to fill and we simply have to do the job every set and every match. We will go back to the drawing board and move on. Jefferson (7-8, 2-2 NWC) got off very quickly five straight aces by senior Fallon Van Dyke (7 aces overall out of a team total of 15). The Lady Panthers slowed the early momentum but the Red and White steadily built a 16-10 edge on a hitting error by the Panthers (32 for the match). The Panthers then took advantage of some hitting miscues by the Wildcats (32 for the match) and kills by junior Emily Farr (2; 4 for the match) and junior Sierra McCullough (4 kills), getting an ace by sophomore Morgan Riley (13 digs) to take a 20-18 lead and forcing a timeout by Early. That was the last hurrah for the visitors in the set as a hitting error gave the serve to junior Kenidi Ulm. An ace, two spikes by junior Lindsay Deuel (7 kills), two miscues and a hit off the block by junior Katelyn Goergens (10 kills) finished the set. Paulding started off better in the second set and got the lead early. A 6-0 span with four hitting errors by the Lady Wildcats the main part put the visitors in control at 13-6. The Red and White could not recover from then on and the Panthers maintained a comfortable margin,

tying the match at 1-1 on a hitting error. The third set was the opposite of its predecessor; the Wildcats getting off to a quicker start and building a 13-7 edge as Van Dyke (6 kills, 7 digs) put down an overpass. The nearest the Panthers could get from then on was 13-12 an ace by senior Courtney St. John (12 assists) but the Wildcats with more variety at the net maintained the lead and put themselves up 2-1 on a hitting miscue on set point. After a couple of ties early in the fourth set, Jefferson got the lead on a Deuel kill and never trailed again. Using aggressive serving that forced Paulding to start its offense from deep in the court, strong digging in the back row and solid hitting, they built up a 15-7 margin on an ace by junior Rileigh Stockwell (3 aces). Paulding did not go away quietly, getting within 16-14 on a hitting error. However, a spike off the defense by Goergens stopped that momentum and pushed the hosts to a 20-14 edge on a miscue. One more time, Paulding got within two 20-18 on an off-speed kill by freshman Kelsey Beck (8 kills, 25 digs) but a kill by Van Dyke jump-started a closing 5-0 spurt. Another missed spike on match point sealed the deal for the Wildcats. We communicated very well tonight, Early added. It sometimes is a lot of screaming but its effective; we need to communicate well to win. When we do, were successful; when we dont, we struggle much more. We focused on that tonight.

Lady Green dominate in 6-0 win over Knights

By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald btzweber@bright.net
OTTOVILLE Tuesday night was a tale of two teams going in opposite directions this year. The senior-laden Lady Green took on the overmatched and understaffed Crestview Lady Knights team in a nonleague girls soccer match on a chilly, damp night at the Ottoville Sports Complex. The Knights have only 16 girls on the roster and had one girl injured and one sick for the match. The Lady Green used their experience and bench strength to come away with a 6-0 win on the night. The first half was dominated by the Lady Green on the offensive side of the field. Senior Rachel Turnwald, sophomore Haley Landwehr, junior Monica Sarka and freshman By Nick Johnson DHI Correspondent sports@timesbulletin.com Dana Eickholt consistently throughout the half pressured the Knights defense but were unable to come away with a goal. Finally, at the 8:18 mark, Turnwald found an opening in the defense and slide a shot to the left of the Knights goalie, senior Darcci Swager, for the first and only goal of the half, giving the Lady Green a 1-0 lead. The Knights did not threaten the Lady Green goal the entire half until the 1:40 and 1:00 marks when they had two corner kicks that were easily handled by the defense and never reached the goal. The Lady Green outshot the Lady Knights 5-0 in the half. The second half was a continuation of the first, with the Lady Green pressuring from all angles and giving Lady Green head coach Tim Kimmet the opportunity to empty his bench. The home team added five more goals to its total on the evening. At the 37:16 mark, Turnwald found Landwehr with a great centering pass, extending the lead to 2-0. At the 32:39 mark, junior Kendra Eickholt boomed a shot by the Knights defense to give her team a 3-0 lead. Landwehr got her second goal of the night at the 28:15 mark before exiting the game for the night with her team leading 4-0. Two of the better Lady Green defenders got the opportunity to play a little offense in the final 10 minutes and took full advantage of it. Seniors Monica Buettner and Nicole Vorst scored goals at the 8:40 and 3:58 marks, respectively, to give the Lady Green the convincing 6-goal win over the Knights. Kimmet was pleased with his teams performance: It seemed like we got off to a slow start but I was very pleased

I know the Knights dont have a lot of girls this year but they played hard on the defensive end. I thought our girls played very well tonight, actually better than last nights game against Ada. The Lady Knights were unable to put a shot on goal for the entire match, unlike the Lady Green that ended with 14.

T-Birds score twice late to dispel Lancer boys

MIDDLE POINT- The Lincolnview Lancers took on the Lima Central Catholic Thunderbirds in boys soccer on Tuesday night at Lincolnview High School. It was a hardfought match for both teams that resulted in a 2-0 victory for LCC. The first half was an even match between both teams, as neither could score a goal. Both teams were evenlymatched on the offensive end, as Lincolnview had six shotson-goal and the Thunderbirds had seven. Both teams play were led by their goalkeepers: Mark Evans for Lincolnview and Ben Stechschulte for the Thunderbirds. The Lancers had the best opportunities to score a goal in the first half when both Kade Carey and Nick Leeth made runs at Stechschulte but he bested them both times and keep the match scoreless. The second half started out with more of the same from both squads. Lincolnview got the ball to start the second but a more aggressive LCC came out and dominated time of possession. With less than 15 minutes left and the match looking like it was going end in a tie, LCC caught a break when junior Sean Daley sent a shot toward the goal and it deflected off a Lancer defender, which prevented Evans from stopping the shot; with 12:20 left, LCC took a 1-0 lead over the Lancers. With seconds left before the end, LCC added a second goal off the foot of Jacob Williams to account for the final score. In the second half, LCC did a better job of controlling the ball, allowing only three shots-on-goal for the Lancers compared to 10 of their own. I thought we played a good game; great game, actually. They got a goal that come off of us that our goalie couldnt get - kind of a lucky goal by them, Lancer coach Mark McCleery said. Otherwise, I thought we played them pretty even. Towards the end of the game, our midfielders got a little tired and ran out of gas, which opened up the last goal for them. We got two seniors up there that are aggressive, strong and fast and towards the end of the game, they werent able to bring the same level of energy.

Crestview 0 0-0 Ottoville 1 5-6 Shots on-Goal: Crestview 0, Ottoville 14. Saves: Crestview: Swager (Crestview) 8. Goals: Ottoville - Landwehr 2, Turnwald, Kendra Eickholt, Buettner, Vorst.

LCC coach Bryan Burkholder had good things to say about the Lancers after the game: This is the best Lincolnivew team I have ever seen skill-wise and conductwise. They had us on our heels the first half and we made the corrections we needed to in the second half, which made the difference in the second part of the match. We changed our attack to from just sending the ball over the defense and when we made the changes at halftime, we decided to go with more of a short pass to attack the defense. It paid off in the second half with two goals. The Lancers dropped to 5-4-1 on the season and LCC improves to 5-5-1 on the season. Both return to action Thursday: Lincolnview hosting Woodland and LCC welcoming in Botkins.

Lady Knights sweep Bearcats in volleyball

By Brian Bassett DHI Correspondent sports@timesbulletin.com CONVOY - After a 5-set, non-conference win against county rival Van Wert Monday, the Crestview Lady Knight volleyball team returned to Ray Etzler Gymnasium Tuesday to take on the Spencerville Lady Bearcats in Northwest Conference action. The Lady Knights dominated Tuesdays match from start to finish, only trailing for one point the entire match en route to a 25-10, 25-13, 25-18 sweep. Another conference match, we had to come with our A-game, said Crestview coach Tammy Gregory. I was concerned about last night with the adrenaline rush, going a 5-game match, what we would be like today. I thought the girls really stepped it up. They were feeling it today and they went out and did what was expected of them. Spencervilles only lead of the match came when they scored the first point of the third set. We definitely didnt play our best tonight, thats for sure. We just had some off moments. I think we just got down a little bit and then from there (the girls) just didnt want to pick their heads back up and get back in it, Spencerville coach Kari Wicker said. Crestview rolled out to a 6-1 lead to open the first set, prompting a Spencerville timeout. The break didnt work and the Lady Knights continued their run, receiving kills from sophomores Courtney Trigg and Megan Hartman, freshman Haley Helm, junior Kirstin Hicks and senior Mekale Clifton on their way to a 15-5 advantage. When the Crestview lead


reached 18-7, Spencerville used another timeout, which could not halt the Lady Knight run. Out of the break, Trigg slammed home a kill to push the Crestview lead to 19-7. Leading 19-9, the Lady Knights got consecutive kills from Trigg, Helm and Hicks. Crestview got set-point on a double touch by the Lady Bearcats, then won the set on a Clifton kill. The second set started much like the first, with a 5-1 Crestview run which was capped off by a Hicks ace. Spencerville fought back within one, however, on three Lady Knight errors and a kill by senior Abby Freewalt. Crestview responded with points from junior Nicole McClure, Hartman and Hicks to return their lead to three, 9-6.

Aimee Whitmers (Grand Rapids/Otsego) first score of the season came just four minutes after Oberlin knotted the contest early in half two and the Beaver defense made it hold up as Bluffton moved to 2-6. The home team stayed winless at 0-8-1. Oberlin came out firing to open the contest, piling up four shots on-goal to go along with a deflection off the post in the first eight minutes of the match. Bluffton staved off the early offensive by the Yeowomen and answered the call when sophomore Taylor Fultz (Camden/ Preble Shawnee) picked up a rebound and capitalized for a 1-0 lead at the 29:18 mark. Both teams had their chances late in half one but the score remained 1-0 following 45 minutes of action.

The Associated Press NL ATLANTA Freddie Freeman hit a 2-run homer in the ninth inning to put the Atlanta Braves back in the playoffs with a 4-3 victory over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night. Freemans drive off Mike Dunn clinched at least an NL wild-card berth for the Braves. Longtime star Chipper Jones, who plans to retire at the end of the season, led off with a double, moved to third on a wild pitch by Dunn (0-3) and raised his right fist as Freemans 22nd homer easily cleared the center-field wall. Craig Kimbrel (3-1) worked a scoreless inning to help the Braves win their 22nd straight game started by Kris Medlen. The streak is the longest in the majors since the New York Yankees won 22 consecutive games started by Whitey Ford in 1950 and 53. REDS 4, BREWERS 2 CINCINNATI Johnny Cueto pitched seven solid innings and the Cincinnati Reds improved their chances of finishing with the NLs top record by beating Milwaukee after learning theyll be without manager Dusty Baker for the rest of

the week. Baker met with players before the game and revealed he suffered a mini-stroke in addition to being treated for an irregular heartbeat last week. The 63-year-old manager hopes to return to the dugout next week for the NL Central champions. The Brewers couldnt do much against Cueto (19-9). Mike Fiers (9-9) gave up nine hits and four runs in 4 1/3 innings for Milwaukee. DIAMONDBACKS 7, GIANTS 2 SAN FRANCISCO Paul Goldschmidt hit a 3-run homer and a pair of sacrifice flies for a careerhigh five RBIs. Goldschmidt on his own gave Josh Collmenter (5-3) plenty of support for Arizona. Aaron Hill had three hits and scored three runs and Arizona scored two of its runs on wild pitches. Tim Lincecum (10-15) lost for the first time in five starts since Aug. 26. PADRES 2, DODGERS 1 SAN DIEGO Josh Beckett lost for the third time in six starts with Los Angeles. The Padres scratched out two runs against Beckett (1-3) and made

two nice defensive plays. Leftfielder Chris Denorfia threw out Shane Victorino at the plate in the second inning; third baseman Chase Headley made a heads-up play that helped erase Matt Kemp in the sixth, when the Dodgers failed to score after loading the bases with two outs. PHILLIES 6, NATIONALS 3 PHILADELPHIA Darin Ruf homered for his first major-league hit, Carlos Ruiz and Domonic Brown also went deep and Philadelphia beat playoff-bound Washington. Cole Hamels (16-6) overcame five shaky innings to set a career high in wins, allowing three runs and seven hits. PIRATES 10, METS 6 NEW YORK Pedro Alvarez hit his 30th homer and drove in four runs as Pittsburgh ended the Mets 4-game winning streak. Alvarez hit a 3-run shot that made it 4-0 in the first inning. He drew a bases-loaded walk in the fifth. Garrett Jones hit his 25th homer and drove in three runs. Wandy Rodriguez (12-13) improved to 5-4 since being traded from Houston to Pittsburgh in late July. David Wright homered and

added a 2-run single, tying the Mets career record of 1,418 hits set by Ed Kranepool. Collin McHugh (0-3) was pulled soon after Josh Harrisons 2-run triple in the second. CARDINALS 4, ASTROS 0 HOUSTON Jaime Garcia pitched seven sharp innings and Jon Jay drove in two runs to help St. Louis increase its wild-card lead to 4 1/2 games ahead of Milwaukee and Los Angeles in the race for the second NL wild card. ROCKIES 10, CUBS 5, 6 1/2 INNINGS DENVER DJ LeMahieu was a home run short of the cycle and Wilin Rosario went deep for Colorado in a rain-shortened game. Matt McBride homered and Chris Nelson had three hits for the Rockies. Carlos Torres (5-3) got the win after allowing one run in two innings of relief. Dave Sappelt and Starlin Castro homered for the Cubs. Chris Rushin (1-3) allowed six runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings.

Blue Jays subdue Lady Lancers in volleyball

By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com RURAL MIDDLE POINT Lincolnview got off quickly in its non-conference volleyball matchup with St. Johns Monday night at the Lancerdome, winning the opening set 25-15. The visitors then rallied to take the match in four sets, winning 25-22, 25-22, 25-18. Leading the Lady Blue Jays (5-10) were senior Heather Vogt (13 blocks, 5 kills), senior libero Katrina Etzkorn (12 digs), senior Lauren Utrup (9 blocks), classmate Christie Carder (16 assists), senior Emily Horstman (4 aces) and classmate Bailie Hulihan (4 kills). The Lady Lancers (4-8) were led by senior libero Whitney Miller (35 digs, 5 aces), senior Jodie Doner (14 kills), junior Ashley McClure (8 kills) and sophomore Devann Springer (8 kills). The Lady Lancers did everything coach Heather Crow wanted in the opening set, serving well, digging and hitting well. On the other side of the net, the Blue Jays struggled to follow the game plan of coach Kellie Sterling. In the end, the Lancers got the 10-point win to take a 1-set lead. Our serve-receive in the first set was not quite there, to say the least. We couldnt run an offense because of it, Sterling said. After that set, we picked it up. That allowed us to begin to get some hits at the net because we could get into a set and run our offense. Plus, we started getting more touches and blocks on their hits, which helped our defense and allowed us to transition into an offense. Crow was pleased with her teams play the first set. That is the best we have played in quite a while. We played our game, she asserted. We servereceived well and got into our offense. The match tightened in the second set as both teams got more into the action. The Jays slowed down the hitting of the Lancers, especially on the serve-receive, and that allowed them to get it going. Still, it was nip-andtuck the entire way. An ace by sophomore Baylee Neate tied the set at 22-all before a serving error gave the serve to Etzkorn. A stuff by Utrup and a hitting miscue by the hosts tied the match at a set each. The third set followed its predecessor all the way. The biggest margin was four 9-5, Lincolnview on a kill by McClure. Back came the Lady Jays on a Lancer missed serve and three mishits to make it a back-andforth affair. The biggest lead from then on was three each team holding that margin once as neither could get on that coveted run. The last one was by the Jays as they put the set away on a spike off the Lancer blockers by Hulihan to put the visitors up 2-sets-to-1. The fourth set saw the

The Delphos Herald btzweber@bright.net

Jays get off quickly and never trailed. They held their biggest lead of 10-3 on a bomb from Vogt. The hosts didnt go away quietly and rallied within 16-15 on a hit off the Blue Jay blockers by Doner. A service error gave the Jays the momentum back and they rode that to the end, getting a hitting error on match point to secure the victory. We didnt have a lot of errors, either in serving or hitting. We kept the balls in play and forced the opponent to move and make plays, Sterling added. We have been trying some different defenses that we think can help us and we did well with what we used tonight. We need to keep working and find what is best for us as we get near the tournament. Crow lamented her teams errors in the final three sets. One, we missed 17 serves; that is not us. We really werent going for a lot, either, so that was unusual, Crow added. We were emotionally ready but perhaps we lost some focus on our serves; we needed to slow down and take a deep breath. As well, St. Johns played well in those sets. They got their hands on a lot of our hits. The St. Johns junior varsity (7-4) downed the Lancers 26-24, 25-18. St. Johns hosts New Bremen 5:30 p.m. (JV matchup) Thursday, while Lincolnview visits Ada (6 p.m.).

Big Green head coach Eric Gerker has commented all year about having his team play 80 minutes strong, not just one half, or 60 minutes. He had to be pleased with his teams performance in the second half as they put on a scoring blitz that netted them five goals in the half and missed on several other scoring attempts throughout the half. Gerker saw a big change in the second half out of his team: Tale of two halves again. The first half, we tried to attack certain aspects of their defense. However, we werent having a lot of success. We were making a lot of fundamental mistakes with our touches and bad passes. The second half, we made some adjustments at halftime and really picked up the level and speed of our play during the entire half. If we can put a full 80 minutes together, we can do a lot of good things out there and were getting closer to that goal. Senior Dylan Klima was able to find the back of the net quickly as he scored at the 39:36 mark. At 34:41, senior Anthony

Eickholt found Klima for his second goal, making it a 3-1 lead for the home team. At the 22:13 mark, junior Lucus Maag got into the scoring column with the fourth goal for the Big Green. Senior Logan Gable scored at the 12:11 mark. The final goal for the Big Green came at the 5:45 mark when Horstmans throw-in was headed towards the goal by freshman Drew Williams to fellow freshman Jared Fanning for the sixth and final goal of the evening for the hosts. The Pioneers, coached by BJ McPheron, had a couple of scoring opportunities but the Big Green defense anchored by Burgei and goalie Colin Bendele stopped any possible threat on the goal, preserving the 6-1 win for the hosts. The Big Green outshot the Pioneers 15-8 for the contest. The Pioneers (2-8-2) will travel to Continental Thursday for a 5 oclock start with the Pirates. The Big Green (7-31) will entertain the Miller City Wildcats Friday night for a key PCL game starting at 7 oclock.

are making fewer and fewer mistakes on that end; its a matter of building our games MILLER CITY Junior as a team and individuals.

Fittro takes over Touch of Nature

vides bouquets, vases and more for any occasion weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, hospital patients, funerals and just because. While every occasion she makes arrangements for are not happy, the mother of two puts as much energy and passion into each one. I trained under the old owners in my spare time and the one thing they taught me was to look at each finished product and ask myself if it was something I would want to receive, Fittro said. So before it goes out the door, I always take another look and make sure its what I would want. The flower shop also has two tanning beds with special packages to fit any schedule. Along with Fittro, Brenda Bonifas provides delivery and Stephanie Altman, past owner, also works part-time in the shop making arrangements. Located at 1875 E. Fifth St., Suite A, Touch of Nature is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment on Saturday. Orders can also be submitted at touchofnatureflowers. com.


Barnes & Noble launches new Nook HD, HD+

NEW YORK (AP) Barnes & Noble is rolling out two new versions of its Nook tablet with sleek new hardware and a sharper high-definition screen. The booksellers move heightens the already intense tablet wars heading into the holiday season. Barnes & Noble said today that its new Nook HD will come in two sizes, one with a 7-inch screen (measured diagonally), starting at $199, and one with a new 9-inch diagonal screen, called the Nook HD+, starting at $269. In addition to the new HD screen and a lighter body, Barnes & Noble is also increasing the services the Nook offers, adding a video purchase and rental service, allowing users to maintain different profiles and making it easier to browse titles in its book and magazine stores. New York-based Barnes & Noble, the largest traditional U.S. bookseller, has invested heavily in its Nook e-reader and e-books. In its most recent fiscal quarter, sales of digital content surged 46 percent, but revenue from devices dropped partly due to lower prices. Nook prices in the May-July period were about 23 percent lower than a year ago.

Information submitted DEAR BRUCE: My friend has been telling me how much trouble he is in financially. He has more credit card debt than he can handle and other debt that is in write-off status. He wants to file bankruptcy. He doesnt seem to understand the long-lasting implications of this. I think hes trying to take the easy way out. He is 30 years old and makes about $28,000 a year. He has told me that among his debts, he is worried about a $10,000 student loan. Any thoughts? -- Reader, via email DEAR READER: I am missing some information here. You say you think your friend is looking for an easy way out. I suppose that by some peoples definition, an easy way out is to declare bankruptcy. But in almost every case, that will not help him with the $10,000 student loan debt. You didnt indicate how much credit card debt there is, just more than he can handle, and you mentioned debt that is in write-off status. Just because debt is written off doesnt mean the lender has given up trying to collect the money. This debt can be sold to another party at a discount, and the second party then will attempt to collect it. If he truly has no money, he could consider Chapter 7, or absolute bankruptcy, which could be denied. It is not as easy as it once was to be granted bankruptcy. He might be eligible for Chapter 13, or reorganizational bankruptcy, which keeps the wolf from the door and allows him to make payments until all the

The company is seeking to offset tough competition from online retailers such as Amazon.com, as consumers increasingly move away from traditional books and DVDs to electronic books and streaming video. The Nook HD is an upgrade to the hardware and services offered by its previous tablets, the Nook Tablet and Nook Color, which Barnes & Noble is phasing out. The company will continue to sell its smaller black-and-white e-reader, called the Nook Simple Touch, for $99, and a backlit Nook Simple Touch for $139. The Nook HD runs on Googles Android 4.0 system and includes Barnes & Nobles own app store and browser. Tablets are once again expected to be hot items this holiday. The new Nooks come on the heels of Amazon. coms announcement earlier this month that it will offer four new varieties of its Kindle, including a high definition version of its Kindle Fire tablet with an 8.9-inch diagonal screen, which starts at $299. That compares with Apple Inc.s iPad with a 9.7inch diagonal screen and $499 starting price.

Fruits and veggies are great afterschool snacks, but sometimes kids want a bit more variety. Finding an after-school snack that wont ruin their appetite for dinner can be a challenge. The first reader tip shares a couple of ideas: After-school snack: My kids often want a sweet or salty snack after school, but I dont want them to eat chips or total junk food every day. So I spread peanut butter on graham crackers and add sliced bananas to make a peanut butter and banana sandwich. I freeze them and my kids eat them as a sweet frozen treat. You can substitute a scoop of yogurt for the peanut butter. My youngest son also loves sliced cucumbers with cream cheese spread and a goldfish cracker on top. -- Barb C., Illinois For more ideas, visit frugalvillage. com/2010/03/17/unique-and-easyhomemade-snacks. Attracting monarch butterflies: I planted milkweed this year to attract monarch butterflies, and we had our first monarch caterpillar sightings this week. They are very cool, but they eat a lot! I had to go to a local organic nursery and BUY milkweed for them, because they ate it all. I noticed in the car that the milkweed plants had MORE monarch caterpillars on them, so now we have a ton! We even have a chrysalis! Its so fun and interesting! -- N Carr, Florida Slice it: Rather than scoop ice cream from a rectangular carton, open it up and slice it with a large, sharp knife. -- Bella, Pennsylvania Pumpkin decoration: Every year before Halloween, we buy pumpkins to decorate. Instead of carving them all, we sometimes paint them. Last year, we used puffy paint on faux pumpkins from Michaels craft store, and we still have them for indoor decorations to reuse every year. This year, I am going to use white and yellow paint to make some look like candy corn for outside. -- Lisa, Ohio Yogurt drops: I buy the large containers of yogurt to make smoothies. When I have leftover yogurt, I line a cookie sheet with wax paper and drop small dollops of yogurt onto it. I freeze the dollops and let my kids eat them in a bowl or on top of their cereal. If your kids are notorious for leaving a bit of leftover yogurt, this is a great way to waste less, too. Im also going to try putting the leftover yogurt into mini ice-

People in southern Louisiana have long taken for granted that the flooding in the wake of the 2005 storm was a manmade disaster 565-3274 one caused specifically by the corps and they have wanted the agency to pay up for lost homes and property. But on Monday, a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed its earlier opinion and shot down the only argument that had succeeded so far in holding the corps accountable. The ruling also could make it extremely difficult to force the government to pay damages for future mishaps. In March, the appellate court panel upheld a 2009 ruling by U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval that had found the corps liable for the flooding of New Orleans Lower 9th Ward neighborhood and St. Bernard Parish because

CAMPO, Calif. (AP) A fire that burned 11 homes and killed an elderly man who refused to evacuate was smoldering in rural San Diego County on Tuesday, but gusty afternoon winds could push it back to life, authorities said. Nearly 1,000 firefighters planned an all-out effort to surround the blaze, which continued to threaten nearly a dozen homes and 14 outbuildings in the rural community of Tierra del Sol near the U.S.-Mexican border, said fire spokesman Andy Menshek. Residents of two other small communities were allowed to return home earlier. An evacuation rotten posts before. order was lifted Tuesday afternoon for th repair and new about 80 residents.

said Tuesday the man is believed to be a 69-year-old resident but they still havent identified the victim and have yet to perform an examination. Neighbors had previously told U-T San Diego that the man was 82 and had one leg. Reverse 911 calls notifying homeowners of the evacuation order were made by the county sheriffs department. Neighbors said the man decided to remain. He felt that he was going to be OK if he stayed, sheriffs Lt. Rose Kurupas told the newspaper. He chose to stay and thats sad, Menshek said. Thats why we issue these evacuations. Other blazes in the West remained active, blanketing some communities in eastern Washington state with smoke. The air quality in many Wenatchee and Cashmere areas was deemed either hazardous or unhealthy by state officials. Authorities there updated the sizes of two of the states largest fires after more accurate mapping and burnouts to create fire lines, officials said. The Wenatchee complex of fires was reported at 82 square miles, while the Table Mountain fire had burned nearly 57 square miles. Crews also gained ground on a 5 1/2-square-mile fire in Montanas Musselshell County, allowing residents to return to about 50 homes southeast of Roundup. That blaze was human-caused and under investigation. NEW YORK (AP) After an hour of fielding questions about Syria, sanctions and nuclear weapons, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had enough. Now, he said, it was his turn to choose the topic his new order which will inevitably replace the current era of what he called U.S. bullying. Continuing his hectic pace of media appearances and diplomatic meetings, Ahmadinejad presented an air of boredom when it came to the hot topic on everyones mind Irans nuclear program and the possibility of impending war. Whether it was feigned or sincere, he said he would much rather be talking about his vision of what the next world order might be. Conveniently, it would be an order in which the U.S. and the traditional powers play a smaller role and every country has equal standing (though the state of Israel, he often
