Gadhafis burial delayed for investigation


By KIM GAMEL The Associated Press TRIPOLI, Libya The burial of slain leader Moammar Gadhafi has been delayed until the circumstances of his death can be further examined and a decision is made about where to bury the body, Libyan officials said today, as the U.N. human rights office called for an investigation into his death. The transitional leadership had said it would bury the dictator today in accordance with Islamic tradition. Bloody images of Gadhafis last moments in the hands of angry captors have raised questions over his treatment minutes before his death. One son, Muatassim, was also killed but the fate of Gadhafis one-time heir apparent Seif al-Islam was unclear. Justice Minister Mohammed al-Alagi said Seif al-Islam was wounded and being held in a hospital in the city of Zlitan. But Information Minister Mahmoud Shammam today that the sons whereabouts were uncertain. Shammam said Gadhafis body was still in Misrata, where it was taken after he was found in his hometown of Sirte, and revolutionary forces were discussing where it should be interred. Thursdays death of Gadhafi, two months after he was driven from power and into hiding, decisively buries the nearly 42-year regime that had turned the oil-rich country into an international pariah and his own personal fiefdom. It also thrusts Libya into a new age in which its transitional leaders must overcome deep divisions and rebuild nearly all its institutions from scratch to achieve dreams of democracy. Many Libyans awoke after a night of jubilant celebration and celebratory gunfire with hope for the future but also concern that their new rulers might repeat the mistakes of the past. Khaled Almslaty, a 42-year-old clothing vendor in Tripoli, said he wished Gadhafi had been captured alive. But I believe he got what he deserved because if we prosecuted him for the smallest of his crimes, he would be punished by death, he said. Now we hope the NTC will accelerate the formation of a new government and ... wont waste time on irrelevant conflicts and competing for authority and positions. Bloody images of Gadhafis last moments also cast a shadow over the celebrations, raising questions

HERALD
Delphos, Ohio over how exactly he died. Video on Arab television stations showed a crowd of fighters shoving and pulling the goateed, balding Gadhafi, with blood splattered on his face and soaking his shirt. Gadhafi struggled against them, stumbling and shouting as the fighters pushed him onto the hood of a pickup truck. One fighter held him down, pressing on his thigh with a pair of shoes in a show of contempt. Fighters propped him on the hood as they drove for several moments, apparently to parade him around in victory. See GADHAFI, page 2

Ala. man executed for 6-month-old sons slaying


By BOB JOHNSON The Associated Press ATMORE, Ala. An Alabama man who testified that he killed his infant son at his familys home because he hated his wife was executed at a prison in the same community Thursday, declaring as his only last words: Game over. Christopher T. Johnson, 38, was administered a lethal injection and pronounced dead at 6:25 p.m. CDT Thursday at Holman prison in Atmore, authorities said. Johnson had filed court papers in May saying he didnt want anyone to try to block the execution, and authorities said he had made no 11th-hour attempt to stop it. Johnson, who represented himself during part of his trial, was convicted in the February 2005 beating and suffocation death of his 6-month-old son, Elias Ocean Johnson. He testified at trial that he hated his wife, the childs mother, and didnt want to be near her. He also testified that he didnt want to worry about his wifes (Continued from page 1) threats of putting him in jail for alimony or child support. The mother of the slain child, Dana Johnson, now lives in Arizona and didnt attend the execution. At the prison, Johnson was strapped on a hospital-style gurney before the lethal drugs were administered. His brother, Thomas Eugene Lagos, sat in the front row in the witness room and the two briefly flashed hand signals to each other. When the warden asked whether he had any last words, Johnson responded: Game over. Johnson was seen speaking briefly to a corrections officer before closing eyes and appearing to lose consciousness as the drugs began flowing. His words could not be heard through a transparent partition. He twitched briefly, then lay motionless. Lagos, after watching the execution, declared to no one in particular with a handful of reporters present: Its a hard thing to watch. Its not going to change anything. Hes been waiting on this for

a while. Johnson was executed not far from where he lived in Atmore, a small community near the Alabama-Florida border about 50 miles northeast of Mobile. At Johnsons trial, prosecutors presented medical testimony that the baby had numerous injuries and had suffered three hard blows to his forehead. The court also heard that the infant was found unresponsive on a couch where Johnson had fallen asleep the day the child died, according to authorities. According to court records, Johnson told Atmore police that he had earlier tried to get the baby to stop crying by placing his hand over Elias mouth and by sticking his fingers down the childs throat. Johnson spent much of the day Thursday with his brother in a prison visitation area. For a last meal, Johnson requested a turkey bologna sandwich with cheese, and french fries. Johnson was the sixth person to be executed in Alabama this year.

We want him alive. We want him alive, one man shouted before Gadhafi was dragged off the hood, some fighters pulling his hair, toward an ambulance. Later footage showed fighters rolling Gadhafis lifeless body over on the pavement, stripped to the waist and a pool of blood under his head. His body was then paraded on a car through Misrata, a nearby city that suffered a brutal siege by regime forces during the eightmonth civil war that eventually ousted Gadhafi. Crowds in the

Allen County residents can drop off expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for proper disposal from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Allen County Children Services, 123 W.

Research shows that the No.1 source of medicines that kids abuse is their own home medicine cabinet or a family member or friends home according to the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. More than one-third of teenagers mistakenly believe that taking prescription drugs, even if not prescribed by a doctor, is much safer than Van Wert Cinemas using street drugs.

streets cheered, The blood of martyrs will not go in vain. Libyan leaders said it appeared that Gadhafi had been caught in the crossfire and it was unclear who fired the bullet that killed him. Shammam said a coroners report showed that Gadhafi was killed by a bullet to the head and died in the ambulance on the way to a field hospital. Gadhafi was already injured from battle when he was found in the drainage pipe, Shammam said. It seems like the bullet was a stray and it could have come from the revolutionaries or the loyalists, Shammam said,

A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

Multiple law enforcement agencies joined forces to execute a drug related search warrant at 20799 Road 24T in Putnam County at 10:15 a.m. Thursday. This raid came as a result of an undercover investigation by the West Central Ohio Crime Task Force. Upon making entry into the residence, officers found a lone 26-year-old white male inside. The male was detained as officers searched the home. The search yielded the following items, which were seized. A small quantity of suspected Heroin. A small quantity of suspected pharmaceutical pills. Multiple items of suspected drug paraphernalia, including hypodermic syringes. A small quantity of suspected marijuana. An undisclosed amount of cash. Documents and electronic devices.

Ohio GOP to split 2012


By JULIE CARR SMYTH The Associated Press COLUMBUS Presidential swing state Ohio is preparing to move to two 2012 primaries, in a one-of-akind configuration nationally that critics say will be costly and confusing. Presidential and U.S. House primaries would be held June 12, along with certain special elections, like school levies. The March primary would include state and local seats, and also the U.S. Senate race. The switch was approved Thursday by the Republicandominated Ohio Senate, and both the GOP-led House and Republican Gov. John Kasich need to approve it today in order to accommodate the deadline for printing military ballots, said Senate President Tom Niehaus. A House session is scheduled from 2 p.m. Catherine Turcer of Ohio Citizen Action said the fact all federal candidates wont be chosen on the same day will baffle people, and she questioned the estimated $15 million price tag. We have been talking a lot about how we are struggling as a country and were struggling as a state, that we need to be thoughtful about how we spend our money and it doesnt make sense to actually have two primaries,

she said. Peg Rosenfield, a veteran elections watcher with Ohios League of Women Voters chapter, said its just confusing. If a bunch of people who deal with this all the time find this confusing, how are regular voters going to find it? she said. State Sen. Keith Faber, a Republican who helped craft the proposal, said it is the best solution to election chaos thats gripped the state. Ballot challenges are under way by Democrats against two separate bills that affect state elections an overhaul of state elections laws, and the redrawn U.S. House map that takes effect next year. Faber said moving the two races tied directly to congressional boundaries President and Congress makes sense. It provides a longer window to work out a compromise over the disputed map, while retaining the calendar for local elections in which many candidates have already filed and begun campaigning, he said. It also leaves enough time to see whether Democrats are able to collect the needed signatures to qualify their map challenge for the 2012 ballot. Negotiations were also under way Thursday to try to settle the dispute legislatively perhaps by adding Democrat-friendly districts in Cincinnati, Toledo and Dayton. Niehaus said he was not privy to House conversation about a revised map, but he had scheduled tentative Saturday and Monday sessions in case they did something today that his chamber needed to respond to. Faber said grouping Senate with the other two federal races into one primary wasnt considered. I think moving anything else adds to voter uncertainty, he said. I was contacted by a number of voters organizations in my area, and (they) said, Look, were set. Everybodys geared up for a March primary and thats what people, the voters are expecting. Davidson College political scientist Josh Putnam, who writes a popular blog tracking states 2012 primaries, said no other state has a split primary quite like it. Its confusing to me. This is something Ive never heard of, he said. Now, is that a burden to voters? I dont know.

Ohio union fight could boost Dems in 2012


By ANN SANNER and SAM HANANEL Associated Press COLUMBUS A ballot battle over whether to keep Ohios tough new restrictions on public employee unions could give labor supporters and Democrats a lift going into the presidential election year. But some Democrats fear losing the Nov. 8 referendum could be another dispiriting setback that saps enthusiasm from the partys progressive base. Unions have hoped that a backlash against Republicanled efforts to curb the rights of organized labor in state legislatures around the country could translate into victories for pro-labor Democrats in 2012. Labor leaders expect to get a better sense of voters mindsets when Ohioans decide whether to toss out a law that bans public employee strikes and limits the collective bargaining rights of more than 350,000 teachers, firefighters, police officers, state employees and others. The law signed in late March by Republican Gov. John Kasich allows unions to negotiate on wages, but not on pension or health care benefits. In response to a similar crackdown on public employees collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin done as a budget-cutting measure Wisconsin Democrats and labor leaders launched a recall campaign to win control of the state Senate from Republicans. They fell short in Republican-majority state Senate district races, but are more confident of the statewide referendum in Ohio. We will, I believe, win that citizens veto, AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka said of the Ohio vote in a recent speech at the Brookings Institution in Washington. The AFL-CIO alone poured more than $5.5 million into the Wisconsin effort and similar expenditures are planned for Ohio. Insiders are predicting the ballot battle could cost more than the $33 million spent in last years race for Ohio governor. Unlike the law in Wisconsin, Ohios measure curbing union rights includes police and firefighters, who tend to be more popular with independent and conservative voters. Ohios firefighters have been featured prominently in television ads supporting the referendum. The nations largest firefighters union, the International Association of Fire Fighters, has spent about $1 million so far in Ohio. If we were to win, I think it would be a major encouragement that will be hugely beneficial, not only to Democrats running for the state House and state Senate, but I think it would be a huge benefit to Senator (Sherrod) Brown and to President Obama, former Gov. Ted Strickland told The Associated Press. But Strickland also warned that a loss on the referendum would be a major blow to the Democratic Party going forward.

voters would repeal the law, and another 38 percent support the overhaul. But most observers expect those numbers to tighten as the conservative group Building a Better Ohio, which backs the law, ramps up spending on television ads. The bills supporters received a boost this weekend when the editorial board of The Plain Dealer, a Cleveland newspaper based in the traditionally Democratic stronghold of Cuyahoga County, endorsed a yes vote to keep the law. Democrats and unions hope to tap into the 1.3 million Ohioans who signed petitions to get the referendum on November ballots. And they see Ohio as a chance to rehearse their get-out-thevote efforts for next years presidential campaign.

Silence is sometimes the severest criticism. Charles Buxton, English writer (1823-1871)

For Obama, Gadhafi death is a vindication


By BEN FELLER AP White House Correspondent WASHINGTON President Barack Obamas doctrine of dealing with American enemies just got another test and, for him, another vindication. The death of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi reinforces Obamas style of dealing with enemies without immersing the United States in war. Even skeptics offered grudging support. For Obama, the outcome allowed him to stand victorious in the Rose Garden on Thursday, taking note also of the death this year of prominent al-Qaida leaders at the hands of the United States. His message: The United States showed it can help rally an international campaign to protect Libyans and rid the world of a killer without a single U.S. troop dying. His vice president, Joe Biden, went further. This is more of the prescription for how to deal with the world as we go forward than it has been in the past, Biden said in New Hampshire, as the administration sought again to distance itself from an era of politics once dominated by the Iraq war. For Obama, the larger story is of an administration with deepening credibility on how to handle bad actors or international tinderboxes without immersing the United States in war. It is not expected to impact his re-election chances; 2012 will be the economy election. But it burnishes his standing on how to protect the country and work with the rest of the world. As Obama likes to remind Americans, he is the president who hastened the end of the war in Iraq, and he is now winding down the one in Afghanistan after expanding it greatly. And in a span of months, the country has seen the demise of infamous men who either had killed Americans or haunted the United States by targeting it for terror attacks. Obama ordered a daring special forces raid in Pakistan in May that led to the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, the architect of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in 2001. Last month, a U.S. drone strike in the mountains of Yemen killed Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen and prominent al-Qaida figure who was deemed as having an operational role in plots against the U.S. The plots included two nearly catastrophic attacks on U.S.-bound planes an airliner on Christmas 2009 and cargo planes last year. And then came the confirmed reports Thursday that Gadhafi was dead. There were conflicting accounts on how he died, but little doubt he suffered a grisly end. Libyans celebrated and Obama spoke of a victorious revolution for those who had

Obamas standing with the public is weakest on the economy and in his efforts to tackle unemployment, with about 6 in 10 disapproving of his handling of both. Obamas standing still vastly exceeds that of Congress. In a slight improvement, Congress approval ratings rose from its August low of 12 percent to 16 percent. Still, 82 percent disapprove of Congress, including 56 percent who say they strongly disapprove. Even as the public expresses disappointment in Obama and disapproval of Congress, only 41 percent of respondents say the government can do quite a bit or a great deal to create jobs. Three out of 10 believe governments impact on jobs is moderate and 29 percent say it can help create little or no jobs at all. Similarly, a majority of the public does not hold much hope for the job creation prospects of either Obamas $447 billion jobs proposal or for measures proposed by congressional Republicans.

IT WAS NEWS THEN

Poll: Americans gloomy about economy, govt

Senate rejects slimmed-down jobs bill


By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press WASHINGTON Despite a campaign-style push this week by President Barack Obama, the Senate on Thursday scuttled pared-back jobs legislation aimed at helping state and local governments avoid layoffs of teachers and firefighters. Obamas three-day bus tour through North Carolina and Virginia states crucial to his re-election race next year didnt change any minds among Senate Republicans, who filibustered Obamas latest jobs measure to death just as they killed his broader $447 billion jobs plan last week. The 50-50 vote came in relation to a motion to simply take up the bill and fell well short of the 60 needed to break a filibuster. Democrats Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Independent Joe Lieberman of Connecticut broke with Obama on the vote. Two Democrats who voted with the president, Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Jon Tester of Montana, however, said they couldnt support the underlying Obama plan unless its changed. Thursdays $35 billion measure combined $30 billion for state and local governments to hire teachers and other school workers with $5 billion to help By NANCY BENAC Associated Press pay the salaries of police officers, firefighters and other first responders. The White House says the measure would support almost 400,000 education jobs for one year. Republicans call that a temporary sugar high for the economy. Obama and his Democratic allies are acting like theyve found a winning issue in repeatedly pressing popular ideas such as infrastructure spending and boosting hiring of police officers and firefighters. The sluggish economy and lower tax revenues have caused many teachers jobs to be cut over the past several years. For the second time in two weeks, every single Republican in the United States Senate has chosen to obstruct a bill that would create jobs and get our economy going again, Obama said in a statement after the vote. Every American deserves an explanation as to why Republicans refuse to step up to the plate and do whats necessary to create jobs and grow the economy right now. We cannot afford to be bailing out local governments, and we cant afford stimulus 2.0, countered Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. After the failure of the jobs measure last week, Democrats vowed to try to resurrect it on a piece by piece basis, even though the strategy doesnt

suffered under Gadhafis rule. The dark shadow of tyranny has been lifted, Obama said. He spoke of Gadhafi as a man who beat and killed his people and who for decades robbed a nation of its potential. What the president didnt note was the criticism he faced from some members of Congress earlier in the campaign, long before rebels got their foothold in overthrowing Gadhafi. Obama had gotten heat on various fronts acting too slowly in the first place, acting without sufficient consent from Congress, acting in a way that left the United States vulnerable to endless trouble. One top Republican, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, said Thursday that replacing Gadhafi with a representative democracy in Libya will be worth its weight in gold in terms of our national security. He added that fellow Republicans who wanted the War Powers Act invoked would not have asked for it if President Obama wasnt the president. GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, asked in Iowa whether Obama deserved credit for killing Gadhafi, answered, Yes, absolutely. Obamas opponent in the 2008 election, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, told CNN that the Obama administration should be credited but could have accelerated Gadhafis fall by acting earlier and more expansively.

GOP speed daters ready to go steady with Romney?


WASHINGTON Michele Bachmanns moment came and went. Chris Christie was a no-show. Rick Perry faded. Now folks are waiting for the Herman Cain boomlet to go bust. Could it be that Republican voters are done speed-dating and ready to go steady with Mitt Romney? Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and other what-aboutme candidates are hoping that the meh-about-Mitt crowd may still be ready to check out someone else. Its been that kind of year, after all, with first one candidate and then another capturing the partys attention for a time. Remember when Bachmann surged to victory in the Iowa straw poll? When Christies big tease that he might join the race captivated the party? When Perry still pulsed with Texas swagger? Why not check out me next? the long-shot candidates reason. After all, Santorum has been looking tough lately, Gingrich has turned in some thoughtful debate performances, Ron Pauls got a new ad blitz, and Jon Huntsmans pushing hard in New Hampshire. And Romney, even with a big bump in his favorability ratings of late, still hasnt been able to generate much enthusiasm among GOP voters. Republican strategist Mark McKinnon thinks GOP voters will keep on looking right up until prom night. They like shopping around and the alternatives to Romney in theory, but when it gets to be more than just about lunch, the voters so far have been disappointed and let down, McKinnon says. The idea that Republicans may still be willing to look around is what motivates Santorum, Huntsman and other candidates who are polling in the single digits to head out the door each morning to yet another town hall, Rotary club or fundraiser. Theyre vigorously challenging the top-tier candidates, sniping at President Barack Obama and keeping the debate stages crowded. I dont need a poll to tell us that were moving up, Huntsman enthuses in New Hampshire.

seem to have any better chance of success. But Democrats are trying to win a political advantage through repeated votes. Theyre also pressing for passage of a poll-tested financing mechanism a surcharge on income exceeding $1 million. An AP-GfK poll taken Oct. 13-17 found 62 percent of respondents favoring the surcharge as a way to pay for jobs initiatives. Just 26 percent opposed the idea. Protecting millionaires and defeating President Obama are more important to my Republican colleagues than creating jobs and getting our economy back on track, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said. Republicans say the president is more interested in picking political fights with them than seeking compromise. Still, they dont seem to be afraid of a politically weakened Obama. Not a single Republican backed the president in last weeks vote The fact is were not going to get this economy going again by growing the government. Its the private sector thats ultimately going to drive this recovery, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said. Look, if big government were the key to economic growth, then countries like Greece would be booming right now.

Moderately confused

Gingrich, whos kept his focus trained on what he considers Obamas shortcomings, has a new ad offering himself as the right candidate at just the right time. Paul is plowing $2 million into early primary state ads that dismiss his GOP rivals as big spenders beholden to Wall Street. Santorum, whose tough talk has made him stand out in recent debates, is questioning Cains credentials as a true conservative. And Perry, hoping to regain his stride, has been particularly aggressive in going after Romney in recent debates. But Cain, whose popularity surged in recent weeks, isnt ready to cede the spotlight even if hes been widely dismissed as just the latest flavor of the month. Cains comeback: HaagenDazs black walnut tastes good all the time. Huntsman, a former Utah governor, and Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, are the only two GOP candidates who remain unknown to large numbers of Republicans, and that means theyve got the widest opening to change opinions.

ed. Stomatitis is another painful condition in which the gingiva (gum tissue) becomes inflamed, sometimes throughout the entire mouth. This is an immunemediated disease and often removing the teeth in the affected area will stop the immune response. Sadly, in some cases there is no choice but to remove all teeth in the mouth. Pain free, these cats can go on to eat normally and live happy lives. If these problems are detected on a physical exam, your veterinarian will likely recommend a dental cleaning under general anesthesia to assess the mouth. A dental cleaning is a very routine procedure and anesthetic risk is very minimal for a healthy patient. An ultrasonic scaler is used to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth. Then the enamel is polished to smooth its surface and finally, fluoride treatment is applied to the enamel. Pain control, including local anesthetic in the mouth (similar to Novacaine injections) is used as necessary if teeth need to be extracted. A dental cleaning is good for the overall health of a pet, as it removes a large source of bacteria from the body, that would otherwise be circulating in the bloodstream and affecting the kidneys, liver and heart. What can you do at home for the dental health of your pet? Yes, I mentioned toothbrushing above, and this can be done with a pet toothpaste and a soft bristled toothbrush, fingerbrush or piece of gauze on the end of a finger. Ask your veterinarian for advice if your pet wont let you brush. A healthy smile is just as important for your pet as it is for you!

Web conference helps caregivers create plan for aging parents


In honor of National Family Caregivers Month, the nonprofit National Private Duty Association (NPDA) has announced that it will host a consumer education web conference entitled Creating a Care Plan for Your Parents at 8 p.m. on Nov. 3. The live and interactive program will provide advice on how family caregivers can work with care professionals to develop an effective plan of care for a loved one. Caregivers will learn how to identify key issues and problems, locate needed experts, and outline expected outcomes to ensure that a parent is cared for in the best manner possible. The event is free of charge to participants. The web conference topics include setting up a successful plan, the plan components, implementation of care, managing expectations, care evaluation and warning

signs. Empowering family caregivers through the use of an effective care plan aids both adult children and their parents, said Sheila McMackin, president of NPDA. A wellplanned and monitored plan helps an aging parent to thrive, while remaining comfortable at home. The events expert presenter is Bert Copple, general manager of the Home Instead Senior Care franchise located in Birmingham, Mich. This franchise has been named a Top 40 Workplace by the Detroit Free Press in 2010 and 2011.

Bowman signs: Elida senior Trey Bowman, seated center, signs a national letterof-intent as the first recruit for the new mens soccer program at the University of Northwestern Ohio Thursday evening. Seated with him are his parents, Debbie and James Bowman. Standing is UNOH head coach Gavin Oldham and Elida head man Tom Thomas. By MALLORY KEMPER The Delphos Herald mkemper2011@hotmail.com ELIDA The University of Northwestern Ohio released the signing of Elida senior Trey Bowman Thursday for the first player in the Bulldogs boys soccer program history signing with a college. Bowman is also the first player on the roster for the new soccer program at UNOH. Bowman stated that his reason he decided to commit at UNOH soccer program was because it was close to home and the opportunity that the head coach of UNOH soccer, Gavin Oldham, presented to him excited him. What coach Gavin told me about next year and how he is going to start the program up really excited me and made me want to come play for him, Bowman said. Bowman has scored 28 goals and added 14 assists in his career (with the remainder of the tournament still to go), scoring 24 goals and totaling 14 assists during his junior and senior years. Bowman is a 3-year varsity starter in 49 matches and took 187 career shots on-goal. Trey has been an amazing player all four years of his career and its exciting that his past coaches will be able to go watch him compete at the collegiate level, Elida coach Tom Thomas said. We are excited to see him play and progress in the next step of his soccer career. So far during Bowmans senior year, he has scored 10 goals and added five assists for Elida. He was named firstteam All-Western Buckeye League, offensive MVP at Elida and the team captain. Bowmans junior year of soccer, he was named secondteam All-District, second-

team All-WBL and offensive MVP at Elida. During his sophomore year, he was also exceptional, earning honorable-mention All-WBL. It feels good to get it out of the way but I wasnt too worked up about it, Bowman added. I knew the day was coming to sign and it feels pretty awesome to further my career at UNOH. Oldham stated that he was happy with signing his first player on the soccer team and that Bowman will be a great team player during his career. I think its exciting how this turned out because a local kid is the first player to sign with us, Oldham added. Its good for the community as well seeing a local kid coming up through high school and then getting the chance to compete at the collegiate level. I am really excited for Bowman to become part of the team and see him progress.

Rangers rally in 9th, beat Cards to even Series


By BEN WALKER The Associated Press ST. LOUIS Down to their last three outs and facing another serious World Series deficit, the Texas Rangers did some rallying of their own. Lost at the plate, Josh Hamilton and the Texas hitters suddenly found their strokes. They scraped together two runs in the ninth inning against the vaunted St. Louis Cardinals bullpen and escaped with a 2-1 win Thursday night that evened the Series at 1-all. Ian Kinsler opened the ninth with a bloop single against closer Jason Motte. Next up was Elvis Andrus, whose tremendous play at shortstop kept the game scoreless much earlier. Kinsler, though, wasnt about to wait he stole second, sliding in just ahead of Yadier Molinas excellent throw. Andrus followed with a single to center, sending Kinsler to third. And when the throw from centerfielder Jon Jay eluded first baseman Albert Pujols and went to Molina, Andrus scampered to second. More than an hour after the game, the three official scorers gave Pujols an error. Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, whos been making all the right moves this October, brought in lefty Arthur Rhodes to face Hamilton. But the slumping slugger, slowed throughout the postseason by a groin injury, hit a solid fly ball that scored Kinsler and moved Andrus to third. La Russa went to his bullpen again, bringing in Lance Lynn to face Michael Young. The steady Texas veteran lofted a fly ball that sent Andrus scampering home. Then it was Rangers manager Ron Washingtons turn. He signaled for closer Neftali Feliz, who worked around a leadoff walk to earn the save. Now, after a travel day, Texas will host Game 3 on Saturday night. Matt Harrison is set to start for the Rangers against Kyle Lohse. For the second straight night, Cardinals pinch-hitter Allen Craig greeted reliever Alexi Ogando with a go-ahead single. This time, Craig did it the seventh. In Game 1, his hit in the sixth sent the Cards to a 3-2 win. The Rangers have not lost two straight games since Aug. 23-25. They sure waited a while to save themselves on this night that began as duel between starters Colby Lewis and the Cardinals Jaime Garcia. Mike Adams, the third Texas pitcher, got the win. The Cardinals broke through against Lewis in the seventh when David Freese singled with one out and took third on Nick Puntos 2-out single. La Russa pulled Garcia and put up Craig, who was injured for most of the season. Washington then went to Ogando. After a first-pitch foul, Craig lined a 96-mph heater over Kinsler at second base for the go-ahead run. Up through the ninth, the Texas hitters were flailing. Hamilton, the reigning AL MVP, seemed to be wearing down with every swing in his first three at-bats. Hamiltons teammates were equally feeble. Maybe it was because none of the Texas starters had ever faced Garcia, maybe it was carryover from the stress that began in last years World Series wipeout against San Francisco. The acrobatic Andrus made a sensational play in the fifth to keep the game scoreless. After a 2-out single by Punto and a walk to the lighthitting Garcia, Rafael Furcal slapped a hard grounder up the middle. Andrus dived to his left to stop it on the edge of the outfield grass, got to his knees and flipped the ball with his glove to second baseman Kinsler, who barely beat Garcia to the bag for a forceout. Texas batters, meanwhile, couldnt catch up with Garcia. Their hardest hit early in the game came in the fourth rather, it was the hardest a Texas player got hit. Kinsler was at third base when Adrian Beltre sent a solid, 1-hopper down the line. The foul ball nailed a ducking Kinsler in the right shoulder and he grinned while playfully rubbing it off. No smiling, though, when Beltre took a poor cut at a low pitch and struck out to strand runners at the corners. Garcia and Lewis dominated at the outset and no one got a hit until Furcal doubled with two outs in the St. Louis third.

Several of my patients have asked the same question. Sometimes they are not asking about carbonated water, but carbonated beverages that contain caffeine (like colas) and sugar or sweetener. Ill tell you what I tell them. There is a theory that phosphoric acid (phosphate), found in some carbonated beverages, can interfere with calcium absorption. But theres no good evidence that consuming a lot of phosphate affects bone metabolism or bone density. Researchers have looked at the effect of carbonated beverages on bone health in adults.

Halloween game: Tie string to several small prizes, then hide the items in the yard (or living room). Weave the strings over, under and around obstacles until youve created a makeshift spider web. Give the kids the free end of the string and let them follow it to their prize. For very young kids, use a different color of yarn for each prize; for older kids, use all the same color of yarn and make the webs increasingly difficult. -- Denise, Illinois Freeze citrus zest: Smoosh citrus zest into segments of an ice cube tray and top off with water. Transfer the frozen cubes to a baggie in the freezer. Orange zest is fantastic in chocolate chip muffins of cupcakes. Lime zest spices up my fajitas. Lemon zest makes the best frosting for tea cakes. -- Constance, New Jersey

Using a potholder, put the cap end of the bottle in the water for about 30 seconds, then try to remove the cap. If the cap doesnt budge, put the bottle back in for 10 more seconds. The cap will pop off, and youll be able to put it back on with no issues. Ive been refilling the same bottle with my own solution for about a year. I also crocheted a top for my Swiffer. I rinse it off in the sink or throw it in the wash as needed. -- Christina, New York Sara Noel is the owner of Frugal Village (www. frugalvillage.com), a website that offers practical, moneysaving strategies for everyday living.

Few Americans take immigrants jobs


By JAY REEVES and ALICIA A. CALDWELL Associated Press ONEONTA, Ala. Potato farmer Keith Smith saw most of his immigrant workers leave after Alabamas tough immigration law took effect, so he hired Americans. It hasnt worked out: Most show up late, work slower than seasoned farm hands and are ready to call it a day after lunch or by midafternoon. Some quit after a single day. In Alabama and other parts of the country, farmers must look beyond the nations borders for labor because many Americans simply dont want the backbreaking, lowpaying jobs immigrants are willing to take. Politicians who support the law say over time more unemployed Americans will fill these jobs. They insist its too early to consider the law a failure, yet numbers from the governors office show only nominal interest. Ive had people calling me wanting to work, Smith said. I havent turned any of them down, but theyre not any good. Its hard work, they just dont work like the Hispanics with experience. Tomato farmer Wayne Smith said he has never been able to keep a staff of American workers in his 25 years of farming. People in Alabama are not going to do this, said Smith, who grows about 75 acres of tomatoes in the northeast part of the state. Theyd work one day and then just wouldnt show up again. At his farm, field workers get $2 for every 25-pound box of tomatoes they fill. Skilled pickers can make anywhere from $200 to $300 a day, he said. Unskilled workers make much less. A crew of four Hispanics can earn about $150 each by picking 250-300 boxes of tomatoes in a day, said Jerry Spencer, of Grow Alabama, which purchases and sells locally owned produce. A crew of 25 Americans recently picked 200 boxes giving them each $24 for the day. It may make sense for some to sit on the couch. Unemployment benefits provide up to $265 a week while a minimum wage job, at $7.25 an hour for 40 hours, brings in $290. Spencer said the Americans he has linked up with farmers are not physically fit and do not work fast enough. Its the harshest work you can imagine doing, Spencer said. In south Georgia, Connie Horner has heard just about every reason unemployed Americans dont want to work on her blueberry farm. Its hot, the hours are long, the pay isnt enough and its just plain hard. You cant find legal workers, Horner said. Basically they last a day or two, literally. Horner, who runs an 8 1/2-acre organic blueberry farm, said she tried to use the governments visa program to hire foreign workers, but it was too costly and time consuming. She plans to stop growing organically and start using a machine to pick the berries. I did everything I possibly could to be legal and honest and not part of the problem, Horner said. Morally, I cant knowingly hire illegal workers.

Nope. He was all the way down in Manhattans financial district, where the Occupy Wall Street protesters have camped out for more than a month. Zuccotti Park has become a hub for more than demonstrators. Visitors, curious to see protest in action, are regular arrivals. Some take photographs of themselves, protesters and their signs in the background. On a typical day they clog the pedestrian traffic in the area, which is often bustling with financial district employees pushing their way through. I think its great theyre trying to make a point, Lahey said, though he added with a wry smile, ... I dont think itll make any difference. ... The government wont make any changes, because its all about money. Molly Schwad, a jeweler from Kansas traveling with Qualizza and other friends, said she was surprised by what she saw, compared to the TV coverage of the protest movement. She saw a rather quiet encampment in the rain, of only about 200 people. At times several hundred people have camped at the park, and some of the demonstrations organized as part of the Occupy Wall Street movement have drawn thousands. I thought it was much bigger, Schwad said. We were afraid there might be violence here. Marsha Spencer, an unemployed seamstress knitting in the rain at the park Wednesday, gives visitors a view of the protests they may not have expected to see.

Jackson doctors defense to finally question expert


LOS ANGELES For several moments, the milky white substance that authorities say killed Michael Jackson dripped down into an IV line a few feet away from jurors. Sometimes the drops fell fast, until their rate was slowed by the Columbia University researcher and professor who for three days has testified about the drug and its effects on the King of Pop as he died. The demonstration, with the anesthetic propofol dripping harmlessly into a water bottle, was one of the final scenes prosecutors presented Thursday to jurors hearing the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray. Today, Murrays lead attorney will finally get his chance to question the expertise and assumptions laid out by Dr. Steven Shafer, the prosecutions final and one of its most important witnesses. The Houston-based cardiologist has pleaded not guilty. After days of testimony and demonstrating the type of IV drip that was likely present in Jacksons bedroom in his final hours, Shafer bluntly responded to a question about Murrays culpability. He has been entrusted by Michael Jackson to look after his safety every night and he has failed, Shafer said. Sitting in the courtroom, watching and listening to it all was Shafers former teacher and longtime colleague, Dr. Paul White, who will testify for the defense. Shafer opened Thursdays testimony by saying he was disappointed in his former instructor, who earlier this year had written in a report that he thought it was possible Jackson had died

Alabama residents who have taken immigrant jobs. Either they were not made available, or didnt want to speak publicly. Brent Martin, an Alabama resident, started working on a tomato farm in an area northeast of Birmingham after the law was passed. On Thursday, he and two other Americans were clearing about 24,000 tomato stakes off a 4-acre plot. He said few Americans who would stick with it. There are plenty who could do it, but would they? I dont know about that. I dont see why they wouldnt as bad as the economy is right now, Martin said. Relatively high unemployment rates about 9 percent in the U.S. and 9.9 in Alabama are not likely to push Americans toward farm work, said Demetrios Papademetriou, president and co-founder of the Migration Policy Institute. He suggested the problem may be more deeply rooted. This is a sector and an industry ... that a long time ago, going back to the 1940s and probably before that was abandoned, Papademetriou said. It was abandoned to foreign workers.

Ditmeyer sets world record

She returns to her home in the Hells Kitchen neighborhood at night but spends most of each day at the protest. When people see a 56-year-old grandmother sitting here, knitting they pay attention, she said. ... I tell them Im here because I want things to change for my five grandchildren. Some visitors echoed her concerns, including Karen Conrad of Johnstown, Pa., who was in New York last week to visit family and stopped by to show her support. Im a middle-class mother and I cant get ahead. If anything, Im going downward, she said. She said her two children are burdened by debt from college loans and wont be out of debt until their own children are ready for college probably. Demonstrator Julian DeMayo, a law student from Montreal bundled up against the wind and rain, said the tourists attitude toward the protest has changed over the weeks. At first, they seemed skeptical, looking at this like it was a circus show, he said. But more recently, he said, many visitors looked genuinely interested, and inspired. And they seem impressed by the level of infrastructure. He added, I think they also see that theres a huge variety of people here young and old, of all races, from everywhere. Some nearby businesses are far less enamored of the protesters, and say the hubbub outside their doors is costing them money. Stacey Tzortzatos, manager of Panini & Co., a casual restaurant thats normally bustling as it serves financial district clients, said the eatery has been losing business because police barricades discourage customers from coming in, and media vans are blocking the view. But the biggest problem, she said, was protesters coming in to use the bathroom 30 at a time. She said she put locks on the bathroom doors in response. They take showers using the sink, they brush their teeth, and they make a huge mess, she said.

Minnesota women found guilty Roommate in Rutgers suicide of funneling money to terrorists By AMY FORLITI says no to deal Associated Press
By GEOFF MULVIHILL Associated Press NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. A former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommates intimate encounter with another man turned down a plea deal that could have limited his time behind bars to five years or kept him out of prison altogether. Dharun Ravi, 19, on Thursday affirmed his decision to go to trial, at which a conviction could mean 10 years or more in prison. A judge set a trial date of Feb. 21 for the case, which helped set off a national conversation about bullying of young gays and lesbians. Tyler Clementi, an 18-year-old violinist in his first weeks at Rutgers, killed himself in September 2010, just days after the alleged spying. Ravi faces 15 criminal counts in all, including invasion of privacy and bias intimidation, a hate crime. In the pretrial hearing Thursday to settle several issues about evidence, he remained silent, other than to say yes when state Superior Court Judge Glenn Berman asked him whether he understood the risks he faces by appearing in court. The plea deal would have required Ravi to plead guilty to a handful of the 15 counts, including a bias intimidation count, which normally carries a prison sentence of five to 10 years. In exchange for Ravis cooperation, prosecutors were willing to recommend a sentence of three to five years, but the judge would have been able to sentence him to no prison time. The judge ruled that Ravis lawyer should not have access to Clementis personal writings, including documents found on his computer. He also ruled against a defense motion that he recuse himself because a distant relative who is a television producer told a New York Times reporter last month that she was interested in the case.

after swallowing a dose of propofol. Shafer told jurors that medical studies dating back to 1985, performed on animals as varied as rats, dogs, monkeys and more recently, humans, had shown that propofol if swallowed wouldnt produce sedation or any ill effects. White has been taking notes throughout Shafers testimony and his observations will likely influence lead defense attorney Ed Chernoff when he begins his cross-examination this afternoon. Shafer also attempted to discredit another defense theory that Jackson may have swallowed eight lorazepam pills in the hours before his death without Murrays knowledge and that authorities overlooked it. He said the amount of lorazepam that was found in Jacksons stomach was trivial. The only explanation that supported all the evidence including the items found in Jacksons bedroom, the singers autopsy results and Murrays lengthy statement to police is that Murray gave the singer propofol on an IV drip and left the room when he thought the singer was safely asleep. This fits all of the data in this case and I am not aware of a single piece of data that is inconsistent with this explanation, Shafer said.

MINNEAPOLIS Two Minnesota women who claimed they were helping the poor in Somalia were convicted Thursday of conspiring to funnel money to a terrorist group as part of what prosecutors called a deadly pipeline sending funds and fighters to al-Shabab. After the verdicts, one of the women, Amina Farah Ali, told the judge through an interpreter that she was happy because she was going to heaven no matter what, and condemned those in authority, saying: You will go to hell. She was ordered into custody pending her sentencing. Ali, 35, and Hawo Mohamed Hassan, 64, were each charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Ali also faced 12 counts of providing such support, for allegedly sending more than $8,600 to al-Shabab from September 2008 through July 2009, while Hassan faced two counts of lying to the FBI. Both were found guilty on all counts. The terrorism-related counts each carry up to 15 years in prison, while lying to the FBI carries up to eight years. No sentencing date was set, and prosecutors said it was too early to predict what sentence theyd recommend. The women, both U.S. citizens of Somali descent, were among 20 people charged in Minnesotas long-running federal investigations into recruiting and financing for al-Shabab, which the U.S. considers a terrorist group with ties to al-Qaida. Investigators believe at least 21 men left Minnesota home to the countrys largest Somali community to join al-Shabab. Though others have pleaded guilty to related charges, the women were the first to go to trial. The verdicts will likely lead to other guilty pleas, said Omar Jamal, first secretary of the Somali mission to the United Nations in New York. He also said it would be difficult for law enforcement agencies to rebuild the trust they had worked to establish with the Somali community.
