Medical alert device scam
becoming more prevalent
Staff Report
VAN WERT Several
people in Van Wert County
have received unsolicited
phone calls recently offering
free medical alert devices.
According to Ohio Attorney
General Mike DeWine,
more than 200 Ohioans have
reported such phone calls to
his office so far this year
around 40 percent were
reported last month alone.
In a release, DeWine stat-
ed that those responding to
the calls risk losing money or
jeopardizing personal infor-
These calls have been
circulating throughout the
country and were seeing
more Ohioans filing com-
plaints, DeWine said. The
most important thing to
remember is not to respond
to suspicious calls in any
way. Dont give out your
credit card number or bank
account information and
dont press any buttons. Just
hang up.
Typically, the call is a
prerecorded message saying
the consumer is eligible for
a free medical alert system
or that someone bought an
alert device for the con-
sumer. The message may
ask the consumer to press
one to schedule the deliv-
ery or press another button
to decline. Consumers who
respond to the calls may be
connected to a live repre-
sentative who likely will ask
for a bank account number,
credit card number, or other
personal information. Later,
consumers may receive
charges for the free sys-
Another unsolicited call
going around is a Medicare
card scam in which callers
claim to represent Medicare
and say the consumer needs
a new Medicare card. The
caller asks for the consum-
ers bank account informa-
tion or Social Security num-
ber to process and fulfill
the new card. In reality, the
caller does not represent
Scammers often try to
take advantage of whats
in the news, and with the
upcoming health care changes
involving the Affordable Care
Act, these kinds of scams
may become more common,
DeWine said.
The Ohio Attorney
Generals Office offers sev-
eral tips so that consumers
can protect themselves. First,
never give out personal infor-
mation over the phone. Dont
respond to suspicious calls.
Even if the caller says you
can press a button to opt out,
dont follow the instructions.
By pressing a button, you
indicate that you have an
active phone number, which
may lead to more calls.

U.S. Postal Service had
$740M third-quarter loss
WASHINGTON (AP) The Postal Service has trimmed
its losses to $740 million over the last three months by consoli-
dating processing facilities, cutting hours for workers and post
offices and reducing workers compensation costs, the agency
said Friday.
Still, year-to-date, the Postal Service had losses total-
ing $3.9 billion, and the agency said that without help from
Congress its financial woes will worsen.
The report for the financial quarter ending June 30 comes as
Congress considers proposals to fix the agencys finances. The
agency lost $16 billion last year and is trying to restructure its
retail, delivery and mail-processing operations.
Over the first nine months of its fiscal year, the Postal
Service said 104 mail processing facilities were consolidated,
career employee work hours were reduced by about 41 million
and operating hours at 7,397 post offices were reduced.
The service wants to end most Saturday and door-to-door
mail delivery. It also is seeking to reduce its congressionally
mandated $5.6 billion annual payment for future retiree health
benefits. The agency says ending Saturday mail delivery would
save $2 billion each year.
Joe Corbett, the agencys chief financial officer, said in a
statement that without comprehensive postal reform legisla-
tion signed into law, our hands are tied and we expect multibil-
lion dollar annual losses to continue.
The third-quarter loss was far less than its $5.2 billion loss
for the same period last year. Postal officials said its cost-
cutting and efficiency moves helped lower losses, along with a
$918 million decrease to its workers compensation expenses
due to interest rates.
Shipping and package revenue continued to be a bright spot
for the agency, increasing 8.8 percent compared to the same
period last year. That helped operating revenue rise 3.6 percent
to $16.2 billion in the third quarter, compared to last years
third quarter.
First-class mail revenue, the Postal Services most profit-
able category, declined by 0.9 percent compared to the same
period last year. Total mail volume was 37.9 billion pieces,
down from 38.3 billion pieces for the third quarter last year.
The Postal Service for years has been wrestling with declin-
ing mail volume and a 2006 congressional requirement that it
make advance payments to cover expected health care costs for
future retirees, something no federal agency does. The agency
expects to miss a $5.6 billion health care payment next month
at the end of its fiscal year. It defaulted on two similar pay-
ments last year.
The pre-funding requirement for future retiree health ben-
efits accounts for the brunt of the agencys red ink and under-
scores the urgency for Congress to end the mandate, postal
officials say. About $11.1 billion of last years $16 billion
agency losses were due to the annual health care payments.
Earlier this year, the agency backpedaled on its plan to
end Saturday mail delivery after running into opposition in
The National Association of Letter Carriers says ending
Saturday delivery would hurt small businesses along with rural
residents and the elderly, who depend more heavily on the mail
for prescription drugs and other goods.
Postal officials also want permission to ship beer, wine and
spirits to compete with private shippers such as FedEx, saying
it could bring in as much as $50 million a year. The service also
favors gradually ending most door-to-door deliveries in favor
of curbside and cluster box service to save money.
Congress is beginning to tackle plans to help the Postal
A Senate bipartisan proposal would let the agency end
Saturday delivery in a year and make changes in how pensions
and retiree health care costs are calculated in an attempt to
stabilize the agencys finances.

On the Banks of Yesteryear ...
From the Delphos Canal Commission
This year marks the 100
anniversary of
the Lincoln Highway, the first coast to coast
road in America. Beginning at Times Square
in New York and ending at Lincoln Park in
San Francisco, it was formally dedicated
October 31, 1913, making it Americas first
national memorial to President Abraham
Lincoln, predating the 1922 dedication of
the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.,
by nine years.
As the first automobile road across
America, the Lincoln Highway brought great
prosperity to the hundreds of cities, towns
and villages along the way. One of those
cities was Delphos. Affectionately known
as The Main Street Across America, the
Lincoln Highway actually came down Main
Street in Delphos in the early years, coming
into town from the east on 2
Street before
turning north on Main Street to Fifth Street
where it continued west.
Within a few years, towns like Delphos
began to see increased traffic on their Main
Street as Americans discovered the sense of
freedom that comes from driving the open
road. Many of these travelers stopped, sup-
porting local businesses. New businesses
opened, including confectionaries, restau-
rants, motor lodges and gasoline stations. To
capitalize on the popularity of the highway,
many businesses were named after it. In
Delphos, we had the Lincoln Highway Dairy,
Lincoln Inn, Lincoln Highway Garage and
Lincoln Highway Candy Kitchen.
Because the state and federal governments
did not fund roads, leaving that up to coun-
ties and townships, the Lincoln Highway
Association solicited companies and indi-
viduals for money to operate and to improve
the routes they had chosen. Many businesses
did this because of what they had to gain by
increased car usage but many individuals
gave as a tribute to Abraham Lincoln.
There were no road maps so the asso-
ciation published a guide which told the
distance to the next town and the amenities
they had to offer travelers, such as hotels,
restaurants and gasoline. A control center
was established at each town so the odom-
eter could be reset to zero. Delphos has one
which can be seen on the corner of 5
Main at Best One Tire.
A special postcard collection of the
Lincoln Highway is now on display at
the museum, along with our regular dis-
play which includes a Lincoln Highway
Association certificate issued in 1914 to
Joseph Jettinghoff, a Lincoln Highway radia-
tor emblem which was issued in 1918 to a
contributor and an original 1924 Lincoln
Highway Road Guide which was recently
donated by Mike Buettner of Lima, president
of the Ohio Lincoln Highway Association.
The museum is open from 1-3 p.m. every
Saturday and Sunday and from 9 a.m. to
noon every Thursday. Please visit soon.

man was indicted Friday on charges that he
plotted to kill his wife with his teenage foster
daughter, with whom he allegedly was roman-
tically involved.
Kevin Knoefel, 43, of Willoughby Hills
was indicted by a Lake County grand jury on
counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated
murder and complicity to aggravated murder.
His wife, 41-year-old Lisa Knoefel, was found
stabbed to death in their home in November.
Their foster daughter, Sabrina Zunich, 18,
was arrested the night of the slaying and is in
jail awaiting trial on a murder charge.
Police in Willoughby Hills, east of
Cleveland, got a 911 call before dawn Nov.
16 from a 13-year-old girl screaming that
her sister had a knife and was attacking her
mother. Police say they found Zunich in the
house covered with blood and holding a knife.
Her foster mother was found in a first-floor
bedroom with fatal stab wounds. Lisa Knoefel
had worked at the Division of Children and
Family Services in Cuyahoga County.
Knoefel was arrested Friday by local police
and faces arraignment Monday.
He also was charged with six counts of
sexual battery stemming from his role as a
foster father three counts stemming from
before Zunich turned 18 on Oct. 27 and three
counts from after her birthday. Court records
didnt identify an attorney for him. If con-
victed, he could face life in prison.
According to the indictment, Knoefel and
Zunich discussed different ways to kill Lisa
Knoefel while she slept. Knoefel suggested
Zunich stab his wife between the shoulder
blades or around the neck, the indictment
says, and told the teenager that her foster
mother was worth more dead than alive.
The indictment says Knoefel coached
Zunich on how to make the killing look like a
burglary by rummaging through jewelry and
leaving a door partly open. He offered alterna-
tive scenarios for the killing, including having
Zunich cut herself to make it look like self-
defense or, if arrested, by claiming she didnt
remember what happened or was insane, the
indictment says.
Lake County Prosecutor Charles Coulson
declined to elaborate on the relationship
between Knoefel and Zunich beyond what
was in the indictment, which detailed sex-
ual encounters over an eight-month period
last year. Coulson also would not comment
on whether Zunich had cooperated with the
investigation targeting her foster father.

from days past is a nice place to be. We learn

a hand in time of need. The common thread
was people.

that the title is childfree, not

unwelcome prospect that

Fast on the heels of Times
article came a story from the
Guardian of Britain report-
ing research from the London
School of Economics suggest-
ing that smart women dont
have children. According to
the author of the book The
Intelligence Paradox, mater-
nal urges drop by 25 percent
with every extra 15 IQ points.
Although he opines that such
women are too smart for their
own good, one could also
infer that youre dumb if you
have kids.
Yet another story, this
one from the BBC News
Magazine, plumbed the
stretch marks and breasts
... like Zeppelins as one
reader put it -- that frequently
follow pregnancy and child-
birth. The story featured a
photographer who wanted to
show womens bodies as they
really are after pregnancy.
Most do not rebound miracu-
lously as celebrity spreads
would have us believe. As if
we didnt know.
But a young woman con-
sidering motherhood might
also conclude that trading a
young, fit body for that isnt
worth it. Combined, the three
stories seem aimed at dis-
couraging, or at least demys-
tifying, motherhood.
Where to begin.
To the childless, as
opposed to the voluntarily
childfree, the debate about
whether to have a child is
no doubt painful. But even
among those who can --
and do or dont -- the con-
versation is rife with emo-
tion. Everyone feels slightly
insulted. Childless women
feel that theyre viewed criti-
cally for not being mothers.
Women who are mothers,
whether working or stay-
at-home, feel inadequate or
mocked by iconic images of
career women with babies in
their briefcases.
Really, isnt it time to
retire this faux-ma?
Another scene: I am in the
delivery room with my niece
moments after she brought
her baby girl into the world.
She is sobbing. I feel so
sorry for men, she says.
They cant have babies.
She was drowning in hor-
mones, obviously, but never
mind. Mothers know of what
she spoke. So do fathers,
though perhaps in a less
immediately physical way.
It is the joy that passeth all
understanding. And, as with
love, you cant explain it to
those who havent experi-
enced it. Thats the unspoken
Heres another: Whatever
else we choose to do, creation
is what we were meant to do.
Sometimes creation takes
other forms than parenthood.

the other hand, would we
have had Michelangelo if
abortion had been available
to his mother?
Knowledge of my nieces
joy (there is no other word)
is the secret code of all par-
ents, including adoptive.
Mysteriously, the inevitable
pain, suffering and sacrifice
of parenthood are also part
of that joy. What is a rose
without thorns? Life without
death is imponderably mean-
ingless. I would argue that
without death, there would
be no love.
Indeed, what makes par-
enthood so relentlessly amaz-
ing -- both the beauty and the
beast of it -- is the possibility
of losing the thing you love
more than your own heart-
beat. Putting someone elses
interests above ones own is
the alpha and omega of par-
Every person will find his
or her own way in this con-
versation. Parenting surely
isnt for everyone and those
who choose to be childfree
probably have made the right
decision. Then again, its
hard to know for certain that
one doesnt want children.
Many dont, until they do.

Come on down to Marbletown
While driving across Indiana-Ohio state line on Sunday,
July 21, I noticed that not one of the giant wind turbines in
sight was turning. The temperature was almost 90 degrees.
Many air conditioners were working hard while no power was
being generated by the monstrous wind generators. I drove to
Van Wert on Thursday, July 25, and again, every wind turbine
in sight was motionless.
Its a good thing the power companies have other sources
of energy - ones that are consistent, reliable, efficient and
Ive read Iberdrola, the Spanish oil company involved with
wind generators in this part of Ohio, has had lots of experience
with wind generators in Spain. Spain has so invested heavily
in wind generators that some believe the high price of energy
is a major factor that caused many companies to leave Spain
and locate where energy is less expensive. Some believe that
losing all of those employers is the reason Spain is having
financial problems. According to an article I read recently,
the Spanish government either had to raise energy prices by
42 percent to consumers or change how they compensate
Iberdrola and other energy companies. Fortunately for cus-
tomers, the government chose not to raise their energy prices.
Do we want 42-percent energy price increases like that for
My primary disagreement with wind generators is econom-
ics. If they are not costly and inefficient, why do they rely on
federal subsidies to survive? Our government is collecting
taxes and borrowing billions from China and others and then
spending funds on expensive and unreliable alternative ener-
gy projects. These projects benefit companies like Iberdrola
and a few landowners but the high cost is borne by all of us
through higher taxes and higher energy prices.
Someday, our kids and grandkids will not only be saddled
with very expensive energy prices, theyll have to repay that
borrowed money.
This is nonsense and should be stopped now.

To have or have not a baby
Earlier this year, a senior Democrat
in the U.S. Senate said he was con-
cerned Obamacare was headed for a
huge train wreck. Every day it seems
that we are getting a better idea of just
what that train wreck looks likefewer
full-time jobs, more difficulties for small
businesses, higher insurance premiums,
and fewer healthcare choices. Just yes-
terday, the Ohio Insurance Department
announced that health insurance premi-
ums in the individual market are expect-
ed to increase an average of 41 percent
in our state next year. Thats money that
could be going toward Ohioans retire-
ment, groceries, and their childrens
higher education; instead its going to
cover President Obamas costly man-
dates. And higher costs are only the
beginning of Obamacares impact.
Recently, the Obama administration
surprised everyone by announcing that
it was delaying by a year a core pillar
of Obamacarea provision requiring
employers with more than 50 full-
time employees to offer affordable
health insurance or face a fine. That
requirement has had a number of nega-
tiveand entirely predictableunin-
tended consequences.
First, more and more small business-
es are becoming 49ers and 29ers.
Some employers have felt they have no
choice but to freeze growth and hiring at
49 employees rather than coming under
the onerous requirements of Obamacare
when they cross the 50 employee thresh-
old. Other employers have reduced the
hours their employees can work from
40 to the less than 30 hours a week
required by Obamacare to keep them
from counting as full-time for the pur-
poses of the legislation. Its no surprise
that the underemployment figure
those working part-time but wanting to
work full timehas been on the rise,
spiking by a dramatic 300,000 in Junes
jobs report.
President Obama decided to postpone
the employer mandate that causes these
and other problems until the beginning
of 2015. Some have said this was just
an effort to avoid the political fall-out
until after the 2014 midterm election.
The decision may make good political
sense for the President and his party, but
for the millions of Americans who are
either without a job or underemployed,
it merely prolongs the economic pain.
Employers know the mandate is com-
ing, and it will continue to encourage
them to downsize and reduce hours.
More Americans will either lose their
jobs or find it harder to get one, and, as
happened last month, more of the jobs
that will be available are likely to be
part-time jobs that make it harder if not
impossible to make ends meet.
To make matters worse, the parts
of Obamacare that were supposed to
alleviate some of these problems are
failing. Earlier this summer, Health
and Human Services announced that
key components of the Small Business
Health Options Programor SHOP
Exchangewill also be delayed until
2015. These provisions were supposed
to allow employers to provide work-
ers with a set amount of money to
purchase insurance in an online mar-
ketplace. HHS pointed to operational
challenges in their decision to delay the
program. They have given no indication
of how they intend to meet these chal-
lenges and get the SHOP exchange up
and running.
The individual insurance exchanges
represent yet another coming challenge.
These exchanges are supposed to come
online in October. But not unlike the
SHOP Exchange, there is no indica-
tion that the technology is in place to
make that happen. To make matters
worse, state-run exchanges that are in
placecurrently in sixteen states and
the District of Columbiaare not able
to verify employer insurance or income
eligibility for substantial federal subsi-
dies during the first year of operation.
This means that there is no way to verify
that someone who claims a government
subsidy actually qualifies, opening the
program to unintended risks of fraud
and waste of taxpayer dollars.
President Obama sold his healthcare
reform law by promising it would spur
job growth, allow all of us to keep the
healthcare we have, and reduce the costs
of healthcare insurance. Unfortunately,
every one of those promises has proven
false. The legislation is instead becom-
ing the train wreck many of us feared.
I believe our healthcare system as a
whole needs reform, but it needs reform
that works. It needs patient-centered
reform that actually reduces the esca-
lating cost of health care coverage and
focuses on rewarding quality. The recent
actions by the Administration only con-
firm the problems with Obamacare, and
pushing the problems off for anoth-
er year isnt going to make it bet-
ter. Obamacare should be repealed and
replaced with bipartisan solutions that
address the high cost and uneven quality
of healthcare. Thats the way to avoid
the train wreck and get our healthcare
system on track.
The Obamacare train wreck is upon us

MPH Tours was at it again
with an incredible expedition
to our nations 49
Seventeen Buckeyes spent
9 days exploring and expe-
riencing Alaska in a very
adventurous way. From my
standpoint and several who
travelled with me, deliv-
ery of mail would seem an
impossible task.
But first let me give you
some background before
we get into the nitty-gritty.
Our guides Dwight and Ki,
who both came to Alaska
as transplants, (Dwight from
upper Minnesota, and Ki
from Germany) could not
dream of living anywhere
else. Dwights family of five
have been residents for over
20 years and during that time
frame they spent 5 of those
years living in dwellings
with no electricity and no
running water.
Meanwhile, they relied
on wood as the source of
heat and for cooking. For
two of those years, they
lived in a log cabin in a city
that could only be reached
by plane, where winter tem-
peratures would reach -60
degrees Fahrenheit. The
other three were in the base-
ment of their current home,
which they built completely
on their own in the small
town of Wasilla. Yes, thats
right: Sarah Palins Wasilla.
Ki has been in Wasilla
for 12 years and shares her
home with two very large
dogs while her son and his
family live just an hour
These two interesting peo-
ple brought aspects of every-
day living into everything we
experienced. Their summers
are spent as guides. Winter
finds Dwight as a third-grade
teacher and Ki a college pro-
fessor of German. But their
enthusiasm and love of their
surroundings has overpow-
ered all the adversities of
living in such a harsh but
gorgeous land.
We traveled by dog sled,
air boat, jet boat, monster
truck, off-road 4-wheelers,
snow planes, river rafts,
kayaks, glass-domed rail
cars and catamaran sail-
ing ships (Since when are
15-foot swells classified as
a little choppy).
We walked on perma-
frost, tundra, glaciers,
through glacial rivers,
whitewater, gold mines,
native Indian villages, ruins
and viewed Mt. McKinley,
the tallest peak in North
America from every angle
and vantage point for three
days in a row.
Flying in a 10-passen-
ger plane to 4,000 feet and
landing on Eldridge Glacier
was the highlight of every-
thing for me. The sun was
so strong at midday of its
20-hour cycle that I laid
there on the glacier and
almost took a nap. I made
a snow angel for you, Meg,
and thanks for the raven

were returned after being adopted as puppies because
their owner did not have time for them anymore. They are
very friendly with people, love to romp around in the yard
but also would be content with just lounging around on the
couch and being your best friends. We would prefer Diesel
and Cosmo to be adopted together because they have been
together their whole lives; they are very well-mannered.
We have not tested them with other dogs or children yet,
but we do not suspect a problem. They are housebroken,
walk well on a leash, and ride well in the car.

FORT JENNINGS Todd Hoehn seems to be slowly
building the numbers for the Fort Jennings boys golf team.
He had nine two years ago and 11 in 2012.
This year, he hopes the number 12 (as in total number of
participants) is a lucky one.
The 16th-year head coach has only one player to replace due
to graduation a year ago: 4-year varsity player Kurt Warnecke;
as well as one senior-to-be who chose to not compete this fall.
That leaves four veteran starters back for another season,
led by the most experienced player on the roster and the likely
number one golfer in his third year, senior Josh Wittler.
The other veteran starters include senior Luke Luebrecht,
senior Nate German and junior Nick Von Sossan.
A fifth letterwinner is senior Kaylynn Noriega, the only
Lady Musketeer.
We have good numbers this fall; that should help in pro-
viding challenges for positions, Hoehn said. We have some
experience, depending on their individual improvement during
the summer. That will determine where our team will go.
The remainder of the roster that Hoehn will look to in hopes
of providing solid depth behind the expected first five has
senior Ryan Rau, senior Alex Ketcham, junior Collin Wieging,
sophomore Alex Sealts, Griffin Morman, Sam Vetter and
Jordan Neidert.
We lost a wonderful leader and player in Kurt Warnecke
but hopefully, our seniors can lead us in a positive direction,
Hoehn added. For us to really be successful, we have to do
the little things, most importantly in the short game, as well as
be consistent.
The Musketeers began their season Aug. 6.
Hoehn has 12 golfers for 16th season for Musketeers
The Fort Jennings golf unit for 2013 has, front from left, Griffin Morman, Sam Vetter, Kaylynn Noriega, Jordan
Neidert and Alex Sealts. In the back row are Luke Luebrecht, Collin Wieging, Nate German, Ryan Rau, Nick Von
Sossan and head coach Todd Hoehn. Absent are Josh Wittler and Alex Ketcham. (Delphos Herald/Jim Metcalfe)

Johnson can secure a spot in the Chase
for the Sprint Cup Championship this
week at Watkins Glen International and
hes not even thinking about it.
On a rainy Friday at the storied
road course in upstate New York that
delayed Cup practice until late after-
noon, injured star Tony Stewart was
foremost on everybodys mind. Stewart
broke both the tibia and fibula in his
right leg on Monday night in a sprint car
race in Iowa, has since undergone two
surgeries and is out indefinitely.
Max Papis will drive Stewarts No.
14 Chevrolet on Sunday in the Cheez-It
355 at The Glen, where Stewart has a
track-record five Cup wins. It will bring
Stewarts streak of 521 consecutive Cup
starts to an end and its his absence that
gives Johnson the opportunity to be the
first to lock into the Chase on points.
Its not the way I want to clinch,
by any means, with him not being here
at the race track. Its a big loss for our
sport, Johnson said. I know that Tony
is feeling bad about being injured and
the effect that it has on his Cup team.
Its crazy to think that he wont be a
player in the Chase.
Stewart was leading with five laps
remaining at Southern Iowa Speedway
when a lapped car spun in front of him,
causing Stewart to hit that car and flip
several times. He was taken from the
track by ambulance.
Like his fellow drivers, Johnson, a
5-time Cup champion, expressed his
opinion he didnt like some of the
comments hes seen in the aftermath
of the crash. Specifically, those who
questioned Stewart for racing so much.
It was his third crash in a month in the
powerful open-wheel cars.
Its troubled me to see some people
giving him a hard time about his deci-
sion to race other vehicles, Johnson
explained. We always praise him for
his contributions to the motor sports
world and his ability to drive and race
anything. He has done so much for our
I personally praise him for all
that he does for our sport, including
driving sprint cars Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Its
unfortunate that he got hurt. I hate that
hes injured but Id be bummed if he
didnt continue to race all during the
week. Thats the Smoke we know and
Stewart-Haas Racing has not named
an interim driver for beyond this week-
end and revealed no discharge date
has been decided for the 42-year-old
Its going to be a few weeks
before we even look at that, said Greg
Zipadelli, competition director at SHR.
For now, it will be a week-to-week
diagnosis on him.
Among the names that have popped
up as candidates is 21-year-old Kyle
Larson, a rising star in the Nationwide
Series who sits sixth in points entering
todays Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen. He
might be a bit too young, though.
Hes in a really crucial spot in
his career and (it would be good) not
getting fed to the wolves too soon,
Zipadelli added. I would prefer from
this point on to put one person in that
we felt was capable of doing a good,
solid job and trying to build some chem-
istry with the crews and the crew chief.
Theres a lot of those little details
that make for a good day on Sundays.
The longer you get to work with some-
one, the better you get to know them,
the better chance you have of having
some consistent results. But I dont
know well honestly be able to do that.
The drivers that wed like to put (in the
seat) are all racing for a championship
and we need to be respectful of their
Although Regan Smith is challeng-
ing Austin Dillon for the points lead in
the Nationwide Series, Smiths boss at
JR Motorsports said he wouldnt hesi-
tate giving Smith the chance to drive the
No. 14 if the opportunity arose.
Id be the first to put Regans name
in the hat for that kind of opportunity,
Dale Earnhardt Jr. said. I understand
that we are racing for a championship. It
would be a challenge. It would also give
him an opportunity to showcase himself
and get some guys maybe wanting to
put him back in the car full-time on this
(Cup) side of the deal. That would be
good for him.
At least Smith knows what hed face.
He was forced to sub for Earnhardt in the
No. 88 last October in the Chase when
Earnhardt couldnt compete because of
the effects of two concussions.
Its going to be a great opportunity
for somebody, added Smith, who grew
up in Cato, N.Y., a 2-hour drive north of
Watkins Glen. Last year, it happened
so quick there wasnt time to think.
There was nothing but a phone call.
I certainly would be open to that.
You just cross that bridge and see how
things line up. I think its a lot of hypo-
thetical right now. I cant speak to any
of that.
Castroneves OK after stock car crash
in Brazil
SAO PAULO IndyCar points leader
Helio Castroneves sustained minor injuries
after crashing during practice for a stock car
race in Brazil.
The 3-time Indy 500 winner sustained
cuts on his legs and had neck and back pain
after the crash Friday in Ribeirao Preto.
He left the wrecked car on his own but
was taken to a medical center in an ambu-
lance as a precaution.
Castroneves spokesman, Americo

ance from doctors would not be given until

Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report!
Big Darby Creek (Franklin/Madison/Pickaway counties) - In
hot summer weather, creeks and rivers can provide fishing action.
Smallmouth bass and rock bass are popular sport fish in this
stream west of Columbus. Casting small crankbaits or plastics
resembling crayfish or shiners can be rewarding; target boulders,
shoreline cover, where pools meet riffles and current eddies. Other
game fish present are bluegill, carp, crappie, channel and flathead
catfish, saugeye and sauger.
Indian Lake (Logan County) - Saugeye are being caught along
the south bank and around the Moundwood and Dream Bridge
areas; try crankbaits and worm harnesses. Fish shoreline cover,
lily pads and any rip-rap on the shore for largemouth bass; try
spinner baits and crankbaits. Bluegill are still being caught around
lily pads and in the channels; use wax worms, nightcrawlers or
Oxbow Lake (Defiance County) - Located at Oxbow Wildlife
Area, 7 miles northwest of the city of Defiance on Trinity Road,
largemouth bass fishing was very good last week. With the new
regulations this year, people are taking a number of the smaller
fish out of the lake, which should help the age structure in the
future; just about anything has been effective at catching the
smaller-sized bass. Boats are allowed on the lake and there is
a boat ramp available; however, boats are restricted to electric
motors only.
Upper Sandusky Reservoir #2 (Wyandot County) - Located on
the southeast edge of Upper Sandusky on CR 60, channel catfish
have been biting at this 118-acre reservoir; the shoreline consists
of rocks, a wetland shelf and sand beach area. Try fishing at the
beach area and along the east shoreline; shrimp fished on the bot-
tom or just off the bottom using slip bobbers usually work best.
There is a boat ramp and dock but boats are restricted to electric
motors only. The reservoir closes at 10 p.m.
Clendening Lake (Harrison County) - Channel catfish have
been biting on chicken livers. Shoreline anglers have been doing
well fishing for them using slip-sinker rigs around rip-rap, wood
and weed edges; for larger flathead catfish, try large shad or other
baitfish around wood cover. Excellent numbers of largemouth
bass are also available here; target them with Texas-rigged soft
plastics around wood, deep weedlines and thick weed mats, or
fishing top-waters at low light.
Lake Milton (Mahoning County) - Anglers have been periodi-
cally picking up walleye trolling; worm harnesses and shad-style
crankbaits have been top producers. Bonus channel catfish are
common; try minnows vertically jigged or deep under a bobber
(around 10 feet) for crappie. Good catches of smallmouth bass
have also been reported; focus on hard-bottom main-lake areas
with soft plastics, crankbaits, or top-waters to target these scrappy
Tuscarawas River (Summit/Start counties) - Fishing has been
excellent here recently, especially from Clinton to Massillon.
Common carp, channel catfish, bowfin and bullheads have all
been biting; hot baits have included cut bait, nightcrawlers and
corn. Target deeper holes and areas downstream of inlets.
Muskingum River (Coshocton/Morgan/Washington counties) -
Catfish anglers should continue to be successful with some quality
catches. For flathead catfish, try using live suckers, goldfish and
sunfish; for channel catfish, stick to the tried-and-true nightcrawl-
ers, chicken livers and cut bait from the river. Current eddies at
any of the low-head dams and at the mouth of larger tributary
streams have typically been the most productive sites; try looking
for Flatheads below the McConnelsville Lock and Dam #7 using
live bait, such as gizzard shad or skipjacks. Past fish in this area
have weighed up to 50 pounds!
Lake Hope (Vinton County) - Fishing should continue to be
productive this week. Bluegill and crappie can be caught this time
of year on minnows and worms fished under a bobber. If youre
looking for bass, try using artificial top-water lures. Channel cat-
fish can also be found in this lake, typically up to three pounds; try
nightcrawlers, chicken livers or cut bait on the bottom.
Acton Lake (Preble County) - Channel catfish are being caught
at this lake in Hueston Woods State Park. Try fishing on the bot-
tom using chicken livers or shrimp; the shoreline area between the
swimming beach and Sugar Camp area has been the best.
Great Miami River (Miami/Montgomery/Warren counties) -
Remember to ask permission before entering private property.
Since the water levels are down, now is a great time to wade rivers
and find holes to come back to later when the rivers are up; all fish
like deep holes this time of year because the water is cooler, there
are concentrations of bait and oxygen levels are better. Catfish
are the best bet this time of year. In Miami County, fair numbers
of smallmouth and rock bass are being caught in the early morn-
ing and late evening in transition areas where deep and shallow
water meet, especially using soft crayfish and salted tube jigs. The
fishing is slower on the Montgomery County portion but catfish
are always hitting in many of the deep holes throughout. Popular
spots on the river are the deeper water areas below the low-head
dams; anglers can find fish lying in these deeper holes. Anglers
are catching channel and flathead catfish using chicken livers,
cut bait, earthworms, nightcrawlers or live goldfish, bluegill for
Meldahl Dam (Clermont County) - Channel catfish and flat-
head catfish are being caught below the dam tail waters using shad
and skipjack fished tight on the bottom; the best time to fish is dur-
ing the nighttime. The confluence of tributaries and the Ohio River
have been producing good catches of flatheads as well; these are
generally caught using live bait.

Offense is out of control.
Points have never been
more plentiful in college
football. If touchdowns could
be weighed theyd be mea-
sured in tons. And yards? On
some Saturdays, it seems you
could get to the moon and
back with all the ground that
gets covered.
Quarterbacks are better
trained than ever before and
their skills more diverse. The
days when a QB was a rare
commodity if he could run
AND pass are long gone.
Offensive coordinators
arent afraid to blend eras
and philosophies if itll get
them a first down. A little
triple-option here. A little
West Coast there. A dash of
run-and-shoot for flavor.
Every Saturday, youre
seeing all of football history
in every game, said Chris
B. Brown, the author of The
Essential Smart Football
and the Smart Football blog.
And to top it all off,
theyre running plays almost
as fast as Usain Bolt can run
the 200.
Outside of Tuscaloosa,
Ala., and a few other spots
around the country, defenses
have become defenseless.
In the early 90s, the
defenses were ahead and
Miami was dominating
defensively. Things kind
of evolved, said Arizona
State coach Todd Graham, a
former defensive coordina-
tor. But I will tell you, the
last 10 years, man, its been
steadily, steadily, steadily
the offenses having the edge.
The game has changed.
How does a defensive
coach deal with it?
Its hard, UCLA coach
Jim Mora replied, his eyes
widening and his voice ris-
ing. Its crazy.
Mora, a former NFL
defensive coordinator, is one
of the many feeling flum-
Defensive innovators
havent been able to coun-
ter with Xs and Os. Theyre
hoping a different approach
in recruiting might help or
possibly doubling down on
fundamentals. Something to
turn around a trend thats
been developing for years.
In 2008, FBS teams aver-
aged 27 points per game and
371.6 yards. Last year, those
figures jumped to 29.5 points
per game and 409 yards.
Plays per game from scrim-
mage have increased from
67.7 to 71.5 per team; yards
per play has risen from 5.48
to 5.72.
Even in the Southeastern
Conference, which boasts
of its defensive prowess,
the offenses are taking over.
SECs teams averaged a
league-record 402.4 yards
per game and 30.4 points, a
bit shy of the record of 31 per
game set in 2010.
And with more SEC
teams picking up the pace
of play these days despite
the protests of Nick Saban
and Bret Bielema dont be
surprised if the record book
is rewritten again in 2013.
So what in the name of
former SEC defensive guru
Joe Lee Dunn can be done
to shift the balance of power

Nothing was dull about the
way Jason Dufner played
golf Friday at the PGA
Championship. If anything, it
was historic.
Dufner holed out from the
fairway for eagle, rolled in a
putt across the green for par
and kept making birdies until
he stood 12 feet away from
a shot at the lowest score
in the 153 years of champi-
onship golf. One last birdie
attempt didnt even get to the
hole and Dufner had to settle
for a record-tying round of
7-under 63.
Probably the worst putt
I hit of the day, which is a
little disappointing, Dufner
said. But all in all, its a
63 and a name on top of the
leaderboard, so thats a great
position to be playing from.
It was the third time in the
last seven years at the PGA
Championship that a player
had a putt at becoming the
first player to shoot 62 in a
major. Tiger Woods circled
the hole at Southern Hills in
2007. Steve Stricker narrow-
ly missed at Atlanta Athletic
Club two years ago.
Dufner didnt feel disap-
pointed for long.
On a rain-softened Oak
Hill, where pelt-sized div-
ots were flying and birdies
were falling, Dufner surged
to a 2-shot lead over Masters
champion Adam Scott, Jim
Furyk and Matt Kuchar. At
9-under 131, Dufner tied the
36-hole record at the PGA
Championship he now shares
with six other players.
Dufner was alone at the
top and in the company of
some big names in history.
His 63 broke the course
record at Oak Hill held by
Ben Hogan, Curtis Strange
and Webb Simpson, who shot
64 about five hours earli-
er. Dufner became the 24th
player to shoot 63 in a major
Greg Norman and Vijay
Singh, both in the Hall of
Fame, did it twice.
And through it all, he
barely cracked a smile.
Hes very calm, said
Stricker, who played along-
side Dufner. Im sure he
was churning on the inside.
He just told me while we
were signing our cards, he
was like, This is a lot for a
The possibilities were end-
less on a day that began with
three hours of a steady rain
until the sun broke through
and took all the bite out of
Oak Hill.
Simpson also had a chance
at 63 until he made a bogey
on the 16th hole of his round.
U.S. Open champion Justin
Rose shot 29 on the front
nine to get back into conten-
tion. When the second round
finally ended, 27 players
remained under par this
on a course that is stubborn
when it comes to par. In five
previous majors at Oak Hill,
only nine players have fin-
ished the tournament in red
numbers. Jack Nicklaus did
it twice.
The cut was at 143,
the lowest at the PGA
Championship since 2001 at
Atlanta Athletic Club.
For all the low scores,
Tiger Woods and Phil
Mickelson were left behind.
Woods couldnt get any-
thing going, exchanging
birdies with bogeys during a
poor putting round that led
to an even-par 70. He was
at 1-over 141 and 10 shots
back going into the weekend.
Woods went to the range with
his swing coach, trying to
find answers. He has only
one score in the 60s in 14
rounds at the majors this year.
Obviously, Im going to
have to put together a really
good weekend, Woods said.
This golf course is pretty
soft. Its definitely gettable.
Got to hit the ball in play and
keep the ball near the hole so
I can be aggressive with my
Mickelsons swing appar-
ently went missing in the
three weeks since he won the
British Open. He was all over
Oak Hill and still managed a
34 on the back nine until his
wild shots caught up with
him. Another 71 left him 11
shots out of the lead.
Dufner was in prime
position to win the PGA
Championship two years
ago when he had a 4-shot
lead with four holes to play,
only to be tracked down by
Keegan Bradley and then
beaten in a playoff. Dufner
remarked that day he would
only be disappointed if I
never get another chance.
And here he is, in record
Dufners popularity has
grown the last two years
because of his zombie state.
He was responsible for the
craze known as Dufnering
in April when someone took a
photo of him slumped against
a classroom wall, eyes in a
daze, during a charity event
at an elementary school as
the teacher taught children
how to relax and concentrate.
But there were nerves, no
doubt, and Dufner showed
them at the very end.
A 6-foot birdie putt on the
16th hole put him at 7 under
for the round and his 15-foot
birdie putt on the next hole
grazed the cup. He followed
with two flawless swings on
the tough 18th hole, which
had yielded only four birdies
at that point. That left him
about 12 feet below the hole.
And he left it short by
about 18 inches. There even
was a nervous moment on the
tap-in, when the ball came off
the putter weakly and dove in
the right corner of the cup.
Its tough when youre
chasing history, Dufner
added. You will be the first
one to do something. I dont
think Ive been the first to do
anything in my life. So it was
a little nerve-racking for a
Friday. Its usually the pres-
sure you might feel toward
the end of the tournament.
That part is still to come.
Low scores were available
to anyone. Even after Dufner
finished his round, K.J. Choi
had an 18-foot birdie putt
on the 16th hole to reach 7
under. It narrowly missed and
Choi made bogey on the next
hole to end that threat.
Scott is swinging the club
beautifully and his only flaw
Friday was not holing enough
birdie chances when the rain
stopped. Even so, he was in
the hunt on the weekend for
the fourth time in the last six
majors. He will be in the final
group with Dufner today.
Henrik Stenson, a runner-
up at Muirfield, had a 66
and joined Rose at 6-under
134, only three shots behind.
Stricker and Robert Garrigus
were another shot behind.
Dufner is a student of golf
history and was thrilled to
part of it. But while that 63
put him in the record book,
it doesnt guarantee the tro-
phy. Of the 25 previous times
that someone shot 63 in a
major, only five players went
on to win Nicklaus and
Johnny Miller in the U.S.
Open, Norman in the British
Open and Woods in the PGA
Now thats some elite

Washington County - The
stretch of river behind the
Lafayette Hotel in Marietta is
a great site for catching large
catfish; some in the 10- to
31-pound range can be caught
on bluegill, shad or goldfish.
The Devola Dam (on the
Muskingum River) has also
been a successful site for cat-
fishing using cut baits fished
tight-line. Hybrid-striped bass
may also be available to catch;
look for scattering schools of
shad indicating feeding fish and
cast towards these areas with
jigs, spoons or jerkbaits.
Regulations to Remember:
The daily bag limit for walleye
on Ohio waters of Lake Erie
is 6 fish per angler; minimum
size limit is 15 inches. The
daily bag limit for yellow perch
is 30 fish per angler on all
Ohio waters of Lake Erie.
The trout and salmon daily bag
limit is 5; minimum size limit
is 12 inches. The black bass
(largemouth/smallmouth bass)
daily bag limit is 5 fish per
angler; minimum size limit is
14 inches.
Western Basin: Walleye
fishing was best around the
Toledo water intake and West
Sister Island, W of North Bass
Island and at American Eagle
shoal; a hit-or-miss bite has
been between North Bass Island
and Gull Island shoal. Trollers
have been catching fish on
worm harnesses or with divers
and spoons; drifters are using
worm harnesses with bottom-
bouncers or are casting mayfly
rigs. Yellow perch fishing
was best around the Toledo
water intake, West Sister Island,
SE/E of Kelleys Island and at
Kelleys Island shoal; perch-
spreaders with shiners fished
near the bottom produce the
most fish. Largemouth bass
fishing has been good in har-
bors and nearshore areas around
Catawba and Marblehead.
Central Basin: Walleye
fishing has been good around
the weather buoy along the
Canadian border, in less than
20 of water nearshore between
Huron and Vermilion and 4
miles N of Vermilion trolling
crankbaits and worm harnesses.
Excellent fishing was report-
ed in 70-73 of water N of
Geneva and in 70-73 of water
NE of Ashtabula; anglers are
trolling dipsy-divers, jet-divers
and wire-line with yellow, pink,
green and orange spoons.
Yellow perch fishing has been
good 6 miles N of Huron, in
46 NW of Rocky River (Gold
Coast), in 40 NW of Gordon
Park, in 36-52 NW of Fairport
Harbor, in 48 N of Geneva and
in 50 N of Ashtabula; spread-
ers with shiners fished near the
bottom produce the most fish.
Shore fishing off the Cleveland
area piers has been slow.
Smallmouth bass fishing has
been excellent in 10-20 around
harbor areas in Cleveland,
Fairport Harbor, Geneva,
Ashtabula and Conneaut;
anglers are using nightcrawlers,
soft craws, leeches and crank-
baits. White Bass fishing has
been slow; best spots to try are
East 55th Street and East 72nd
Street piers in Cleveland and
the long pier in Fairport Harbor.
On the lake, look for gulls feed-
ing on shiners at the surface;
the white bass will be below.
Anglers are using agitators with
jigs and small spoons. The
water temperature is 69 degrees
off of Toledo and 70 degrees
off of Cleveland, according to
the nearshore marine forecast.
Anglers are encouraged
to always wear a U.S. Coast

side of ball?
Three areas need to be
addressed: player develop-
ment, recruiting/personnel
and schemes.
The rise of 7-on-7 football,
a scaled-down version of the
game played by high-school-
ers during the offseason
without linemen, full pads or
tackling to the ground has
coincided with improvements
in the passing game.
Its all about the develop-
ment of quarterbacks, said
Cincinnati coach Tommy
Tuberville, who rose through
the ranks as a defensive
assistant at Miami and Texas
When they get to college
campuses, theyre ready to
play. Johnny Manziel became
the first freshman to win the
Heisman last year but it came
just a few years after Tim
Tebow was the first soph-
omore to win it and Sam
Bradford became the second.
While quarterbacks are
working on their games year-
round, defensive players are
tackling less and less because
of injury concerns.
The thing I really see in
college football is the missed
tackles, said Dunn, who was
one of the most successful
defensive coordinators in
college football in the 1990s
and early 2000s. So many
missed tackles.
The missed tackles stand
out more than ever before
because offenses are forcing
defenses to defend so much
more of the field, stretching
them out both vertically and
Dunn explained the answer
is stressing the need to run to
the ball. But defenders have
so far to go, only teams with
lineups loaded with elite ath-
letes such as Alabama and
LSU have the sheer speed and
quickness to close the gaps.
For those teams that cant
pack a roster with blue-chip
talent, theres a lot of 1-on-1
football being played, with
the defenses at a disadvan-
All the better athletes are
going to play wide receiver in
high school and theyre not
playing defense, Tuberville
Or theyre playing quarter-
back. Back in the day, for the
most part, there were running
quarterbacks (think Nebraska
great such as Turner Gill,
Tommie Frazier and Eric
Crouch) and there were
throwing quarterbacks. And
the guys with the good arms
who could run well (John
Elway, Steve Young, Randall
Cunningham) were more
scramblers than ball carriers.
Now players such as
Manziel, Oregons Marcus
Mariota, Ohio States Braxton
Miller and Northern Illinois
Jordan Lynch are just as com-
fortable running the option as
they are reading coverage.

Reds 7, Padres 2
CINCINNATI Bronson Arroyo recov-
ered from his roughest outing of the season
with a solid showing and Joey Votto drove in a
pair of runs with a single and a triple on Friday
night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 7-2 vic-
tory over the San Diego Padres.
Arroyo (10-9) allowed only four hits in
seven innings, including Logan Forsythes solo
Catcher Ryan Hanigan was activated off the
DL and started the game, his first in a month.
He went 0-for-2 with two walks.
Votto drove in the first two runs off Andrew
Cashner (8-6). Brandon Phillips added a 2-run
homer off Tim Stauffer.
It was a break-out night for Todd Frazier.
The Reds third baseman doubled in the first
inning, ending an 0-for-31 slump that was the
longest by a Reds player since Drew Stubbs
went out in 32 consecutive at-bats last season.
He came around on Vottos single, which gave
the first baseman a 7-game hitting streak.
Frazier opened the third with a walk and
scored on Vottos third triple of the season, a
drive off the wall in right field that deflected
back toward the infield. Jay Bruces double
made it 3-0.
San Diego helped the Reds take control with
sloppy defense. Votto opened the fifth with a
walk and came around on Chris Heiseys 2-out
single that rightfielder Will Venable misplayed
for an error. Zack Cozart grounded to Forsythe,
whose high throw from shortstop landed in the
Reds dugout area, letting in another unearned
run for a 5-1 lead.
Phillips hit his 14th homer an inning later,
also with two outs.
Venable homered in the eighth off Alfredo
Reliever Jonathan Broxton gave up a single
in the ninth, his first appearance since June 13.
He was activated Wednesday after recovering
from a sprained pitching elbow.
Angels 5, Indians 2
CLEVELAND Jered Weaver chalked up
another win in Cleveland and Josh Hamilton hit
a 3-run homer as the Los Angeles Angels ended
their 4-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory
over the Indians, who dropped their fifth in a
row on Friday night.
Weaver (7-5) allowed two runs and six hits
in seven innings. J.C. Gutierrez worked the
eighth and rookie Dane De La Rosa had a 1-2-3
ninth for his first major-league save.
Hamilton connected in the first inning when
the Angels scored five off Scott Kazmir (7-5).
Michael Brantley and Asdrubal Cabrera
homered for Cleveland, still reeling from a
4-game sweep by AL Central-leading Detroit.
The Indians were counting on Kazmir to
turn things around but the left-hander couldnt
get out of the third inning against his former
He lasted just three innings, allowing five
runs and six hits in his shortest outing since
June 15.
His first inning couldnt have gone much
worse. J.B. Shuck led off with a single and
went to third on Cowgills blooper. Mike Trout
walked on a pitch that could have been called
strike three and Mark Trumbo followed with
a 2-run single. Trout stole third; an out later,
Hamilton, in a 2-for-25 slump, launched his
17th homer into the right-field seats to make
it 5-0.
Brantley picked up one of the runs in the
second with his eighth homer.
Cabrera brought the Indians within 5-2 in
the fourth by connecting for his ninth homer.

Tomorrows Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Take advantage of any
opportunities to increase your
knowledge in your chosen field of
endeavor in the coming months.
Although finding time to study might
be quite difficult, it will prove worth it
in the long run.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) --
Though you are likely to be an old
softy today, to achieve anything of
significance, you might have to be
a bit more thick-skinned than usual.
Try to find a balance between nice
and efficient.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It
isnt likely that you will appreciate
being told what to do and when and
how to do it, so its best to avoid
associates who always try to impose
their ways on you. Defuse conflicts
before they start.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
Someone you know socially could
turn out to be a pretty tough customer
when engaged in business. Limit
your expectations about getting any
great deals from him or her, and
dont take anything personally.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- If youre negotiating a matter of
considerable importance, it might
be wise to have a capable someone
serve as a buffer. You may not do so
well one-on-one.
21) -- If some of your assignments
and responsibilities are being
rearranged, dont volunteer to take
on more than you can handle. Youll
be much more help if youre realistic.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- If the root cause of your discomfort
has yet to be eradicated, try to avoid
a group in which certain members
make you feel uneasy. If you dont,
your problem will only grow.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Dont rely on Lady Luck to bail
you out of choppy waters. Instead
of rooting for you, she might help
others trip you up even more. It
would be better to rely on your own
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -- Forgo any temptations to
boast about or exaggerate your
accomplishments. Instead of looking
good in the eyes of others, you might
achieve just the opposite.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Financial mistakes could have a
larger price than youre prepared
to pay, so you may need to be
especially careful when it comes to
your money. Dont take any risks.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
-- Usually, you appreciate the value
of compromise and the wisdom
of making concessions. Today,
however, you might dig in on an
issue that deeply moves you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
-- Go ahead and extend a helping
hand to someone, but dont let a
clever manipulator use your gesture
against you. Time and thought must
be devoted to your interests as well.
Added discipline will help you
take on challenges in the year ahead
that have been too difficult in the
past. Choose associates that can
offer you much and look for ways
to cut your overhead to allow you
greater freedom in striving to reach
new goals.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Youll
have plenty to discuss with someone
who shares your concerns and
interests. Take care of your domestic
responsibilities to avoid complaints.
Diplomacy will help you keep the
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- Share important news only with
people you trust. Serious plans will
turn into an even greater opportunity
than you first anticipated. Offer help
or services to a cause that you feel
passionate about.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
Overreaction, overindulgence and
overdoing it will lead to emotional
upset and anger. Compromise in
order to keep the peace. Dont
hesitate to call in a favor if it will help
you bypass trouble.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- Jump into action and take on a
challenge with all your heart and
might. An intense and creative
approach to whatever you do will
bring positive results even if you face
unexpected opposition.
21) -- Good fortune is heading
your way. Investments, contracts
and settlements will enable you to
make the domestic changes that
youve been contemplating. Dont let
anyone restrict you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- Do whatever you can to get ahead.
Update and upgrade your methods
in order to fill a position that will
bring you greater rewards. A creative
approach to work and money will
bring added benefits.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Consider how you can use your
talents and contacts to help you
solve a problem or pursue a project.
A shrewd partnership will help you
achieve your goals.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
-- Let your imagination wander and
wonder. Explore any opportunities
or possibilities that will allow you to
expand one of your more hidden
assets. Its a good day to find love
and meet friends.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) --
Listen to what others have to say
and consider how to incorporate
your own goals while satisfying the
needs of your colleagues. A happy
environment will bring you greater
freedom to operate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
-- Travel and educational pursuits
will bolster your achievement. In a
competitive involvement, observe
what others do and find a way
to apply your own unique twist.
Physical activity will improve your
health and mood.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A
change will do you good. Talk over
any alterations you want to make
with the people who would be
affected by your plans. You will meet
with support and assistance.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-- Socialize with people who can
benefit from your hospitality and
generous, kind nature. Fix up your
surroundings and youll have a better
environment in which to achieve.
Distributed by Universal UClick for UFS
CANCER (June 21- July 22) --
Your thinking might not be as clear
as usual. For some reason, you
might take certain trivial things far
too seriously, while treating serious
matters too indifferently.

it is man or beast; we draw each breath
from and because of Mother Nature.
We saw these beasts up close but not

on March 1 of every year race 1,049
miles in less than 10 days. They receive
nothing after they leave the starting

with them in their sled. Their desire to
pull these sleds has been bred into them
for decades and until you experience

If you do receive a suspicious call, do not
trust your caller ID. Scammers often spoof
the number that appears on your caller ID so
that a call appearing to be from a local area
code phone number may be coming from
another state or another country.
Be careful any time someone offers you
something for free but requests personal
information. Once they get your credit card
number or bank account information, they
could charge you. If you get a call with a
recorded sales message and you havent given
the company your written permission to call,
the call is in violation of Do Not Call laws
and the offer is likely a scam. If you gave
information to one of these callers, check your
account statements. If you find unexpected
charges, ask your bank or credit card company
to remove them.

ited calls, contact the Ohio Attorney Generals

WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack
Obama signed into law Friday a measure restor-
ing lower interest rates for student loans, pledg-
ing the hard-fought compromise would be just
the first step in a broader, concerted fight to rein
in the costs of a college education.
Encircled by lawmakers from both parties in
the Oval Office, Obama praised Democrats and
Republicans alike for agreeing finally on
what he called a sensible, reasonable approach
to student loans even as he cautioned that our
job is not done.
Feels good signing bills. I havent done this
in a while, Obama said, alluding to the dif-
ficulty hes faced getting Congress, particularly
the Republican-controlled House, to approve
his legislative priorities, such as gun control and
budget deals.
Hint, hint, he added to laughter.
But even the feel-good moment at the White
House came with reminders of the bitter partisan-
ship that still makes future deals incredibly dif-
ficult for Obama. House Speaker John Boehner,
R-Ohio, called the law part of the Republican
jobs plan, while House Democratic leader
Nancy Pelosi of California said it stands in stark
contrast to the House Republicans plan to saddle
families with billions more in student debt.
The rare compromise emerged only after a
frenzy of summer negotiations, with lawmakers
at odds over how loan rates should be set in the
future even while they agreed that a doubling of
rates it kicked in July 1 when Congress failed
to act before the deadline would be bad policy
and bad news for students.
The legislation links student loan interest
rates to the financial markets. It offers lower
rates this fall because the government can bor-
row money cheaply at this time. If the economy
improves in the coming years as expected, it will
become more costly for the government to bor-
row money, and that cost would be passed on to
About 11 million students this year are
expected to have lower interest rates, saving
the average undergraduate $1,500 on interest
charges on this years loans.
Boehner called it a good day and a fine
example of what Washington can accomplish
when petty partisanship is put aside.
With the stroke of a pen, weve now offi-
cially taken the politics out of student loans,
he said.
Obama cast the student loan deal as just the
first of many measures the U.S. needs to make
college affordable as a higher-tech economy
makes advanced training and education a neces-
sity for many workers.
The cost of college remains extraordinarily
high. Its out of reach for a lot of folks, Obama
said, calling it a burden as well on families who
have to balance other priorities, like buying a
home, with helping fund their childrens educa-
tions. Weve got to do something about it.
Undergraduates this fall will borrow at a 3.9
percent interest rate for subsidized and unsub-
sidized loans. Graduate students would have
access to loans at 5.4 percent, and parents would
borrow at 6.4 percent. The rates would be locked
in for that years loan, but each years loan could
be more expensive than the last.
Interest rates will not top 8.25 percent for
undergraduates. Graduate students will not
pay rates higher than 9.5 percent, and parents
rates would top out at 10.5 percent. Using
Congressional Budget Office estimates, rates
would not reach those limits in the next 10 years.
In all, some 18 million loans will be covered
by the legislation, totaling about $106 billion this
fall. The Congressional Budget Office estimated
the bill would reduce the deficit by $715 million
over the next decade.

The Delphos
Obama: Reform spy program, pause Russia reset
The Associated Press
Responding to critics,
President Barack Obama
promised on Friday to work
with Congress on appropri-
ate reforms for the domes-
tic surveillance programs
that have stirred criticism at
home and abroad. He also
said it is time to recalibrate
the United States relation-
ship with Russia, which is
harboring NSA secrets leaker
Edward Snowden.
Its not enough for me to
have confidence in these pro-
grams, the president declared
of NSA domestic intelligence-
gathering programs at a White
House news conference, one
day before his scheduled
departure on a weeklong
vacation. The American peo-
ple have to have confidence in
them as well.
The president announced a
series of changes in a program
begun under the anti-terror
Patriot Act that was passed
in the wake of the attacks
of Sept, 11, 2001. But none
of the moves would alter the
basic core of the program,
the collection of millions of
Americans phone records.
As for Snowden, recently
granted temporary asylum by
Russia, Obama said he is not
a patriot, as some have sug-
gested, and challenged him to
return to the United States to
face espionage charges.
On Russia, Obama said
that given recent differenc-
es over Syria, human rights
and Snowden, it is probably
appropriate for us to take a
pause, reassess where it is that
Russia is going ... and recali-
brate the relationship.
The hour-long news con-
ference ranged over numerous
issues, although the president
became especially animated
when the questions turned to
Republicans in Congress. He
said they would risk the wrath
of the public if they vote to
shut down the government
this fall in an attempt to cut
off funding for his signature
health care law.
And on another congres-
sional issue, he said that
while he was open to House
Republicans proposing an
alternative immigration bill,
his preference was for a vote
on a Senate-passed measure
that would combine border
security with a chance at citi-
zenship for millions of immi-
grants living in the country
He said he was absolutely
certain such a bill would pass in
the GOP-controlled U.S. House.
He did not mince words
about the United States dete-
riorating relationship with
Russia. He said President
Vladimir Putins recent
decision to grant asylum to
Snowden was merely the lat-
est in a series of differences
between the two countries,
including a response to the
Syrian civil war and to human
rights issues.
Ive encouraged Mr.
Putin to look forward rather
than backward, Obama said,
evoking memories of relations
between the United States and
the former Soviet Union.
The president, who just
this week canceled a planned
summit meeting with Putin,
said he does not want the
United States to boycott the
upcoming 2014 Olympics
scheduled to be held in Sochi,
Russia, as a protest against
Russian treatment of homo-
FCC votes to cap, slash prison phone rates
decade after families of pris-
on inmates asked for action,
the Federal Communications
Commission agreed on Friday
to limit how much companies
can charge for phone calls
made from behind bars.
The FCC voted 2-1 dur-
ing an emotional meeting to
cap interstate phone rates at
21 cents a minute for debit
or prepaid calls and 25 cents
a minute for collect calls.
Companies wanting to set
higher rates would have to
file a request for a waiver and
could not charge more until
that waiver is granted.
The commissions action
ends fluctuating phone rates
for inmates that vary depend-
ing on the provider, the type of
call and size of prison facility.
The fees range from 50 cents to
$3.95 to place calls, plus addi-
tional per-minute rates of any-
where from 5 cents to 89 cents.
In some cases, a 15-minute
call has cost $17, and numer-
ous fees have been tacked onto
call charges. Inmates families,
many of them poor, usually are
stuck with the bills. For secu-
rity, inmates are not allowed to
have cellphones.
