IRS warns of scams relating to typhoon victims


Tornadoes, damaging storms sweep across Midwest

Staff and wire reports barns at an additional residence on Doner Road were reported to have seen significant damage. Isolated areas around the county reported power lines down and the highest wind gusts measured at the EMA office during the height of the storm measured 50 miles per hour. A second line of storms moving through Decatur moved into the county 20 minutes after the first and again saw winds of 50 mph but produced no tornadoes. No touchdowns were reported within Van Wert County from either storm system. Putnam County, northeast of Van Wert, was not so lucky. Storms exiting Van Wert and Paulding entered the county and produced a strong tornado in the town of Cloverdale. This tornado damaged and leveled several homes and buildings in this area. Damage was also seen to the west of Van Wert, as well in Allen County. Over 5,000 homes were reported without power in Fort Wayne following the storms. I appreciate all the people following weather statements on the EMA frequency and Facebook and staying safe during this hazardous weather, noted McCoy. I appreciate all the assistance from the storm spotters that were out, including fire personnel, law enforcement and amateur radio operators, for what was hopefully the last storm outbreak of the year. The Delphos area was spared much of the storm damage compared to many areas throughout Ohio and surrounding states as dangerous storms passed through the area late Sunday afternoon. Spencerville residents were experiencing a village-wide power outage and had not yet had power restored as of 10:15 p.m. Allen County Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Russ Decker reported only minor damage and limited power outages throughout his county. Dozens of tornadoes and intense thunderstorms swept across the Midwest on Sunday, unleashing powerful winds that flattened entire neighborhoods, flipping over cars, uprooting trees and leaving at least five people dead. Illinois took the brunt of the fury as the string of unusually powerful lateseason tornadoes tore across the state, injuring dozens and even prompting officials at Chicagos Soldier Field to evacuate the stands and delay the Bears game. The whole neighborhoods gone. The wall of my fireplace is all that is left of my house, said Michael Perdun, speaking by cellphone from the hard-hit central Illinois town of Washington, where he said his neighborhood was wiped out in a matter of seconds.

The Angels of Christmas VW Business Enterprise Center arrive in Van Wert offers Starting Right class
Review: My Three Angels at Van Wert Civic Theatre
By Dee Fisher Christmas arrived Thursday night at the Van Wert Civic Theatre! My Three Angels opened to the delight of the audience, who expressed their appreciation with applause and kind words to the cast after the show. I know what youre thinking: oh, boy, another saccharine-filled take on the real meaning of Christmas, the air filled with pine scent, the lights twinkling on the industrial-sized Christmas tree, childrens faces lit up with the glow of sweetness. And you would be wrong. My Three Angels is a Christmas story that takes the generosity and selflessness that is part of the Christmas season, mixes it all up and hands it back to you in a quite bizarre way. I would caution you to not let your mind wander at all. Youll miss the next twist in the plot. The time is Christmas Eve, 1910, in French Guiana, a tropical region where the average temperature at this time of year is 104. The island is filled with convicts who have been exiled there from France. A sweet, gentle shopkeeper, who is not a very good businessman, is sitting at his table trying to straighten his not-sowell-kept ledger books. His wife, who loves him dearly, is trying to get him to be more business-like and collect debts owed to them. His daughter runs in with the news that her fathers cousin, who had cruelly taken away the fathers business in France, has arrived at the dock, along with his nephew, who is in the process of jilting the daughter for an heiress in France. Their mission in coming to this hellhole? They have come to oust the family from the small shop they manage! All the while, we hear the banging of hammers on the roof. Three convicts, two murderers and one swindler, have been employed by the family to fix their roof. The real fun starts when they come down from the roof and make themselves at home. Despite their checkered pasts, each prisoner has a heart of gold and a desire to see justice done. They set about to make things right for the family and, in so doing, find their own redemption as real-life angels. I heard about the cast shortly after the auditions were completed and I have to say I was excited to see who was chosen. Veteran performers work alongside newer actors, and I even saw faces that I hadnt seen in years. The trio of angels is aptly played by Rick Workman, Perry Luhn and Steve Lane, all long-time veterans of many community stages in our area. The three gentlemen work together so well and you find yourself reading whole pages of dialogue in their facial expressions and glances back and forth. The actors brought each character to life in such a way that you find yourself rooting for them, despite their unorthodox and rather illegal ways of helping the shopkeepers family. Steve as Jules will have you reaching for your Kleenex with his desire for a family and domesticity; Perry as Alfred will have you chuckling with his tender care for their pet snake, Adolphe; and Rick will have you checking for your wallet as you watch him become Joseph, the quick-talking con man. Jerry Miller, Jan Miller (no, theyre not really married to each other) and Sassy Shenefield are Felix and Emilie Ducotel and their overly romantic daughter, Marie Louise. Jerry and Jan have played husband and wife before on Van Werts stage and their chemistry was obvious. Putting Sassy in as Marie Louise was a wise decision, as she comes across well as the dramatic young thing with unrequited love for the caddish nephew. The real villains in the story are the evil cousin, Henri, and his nephew, Paul, played by Ed Eichler and Lance Thompson. You, too, like the opening night audience, will catch your breath at the callous words and actions of these characters. I really didnt know Ed could play such an evil character as Henri but he had me with his entrance, sweeping into the room without a thought for anyone around him. Lances character, Paul, seemed to be destined for the background but as he later displays his true colors (which are as wicked as his uncle), Lance brought him into the foreground with true mustache-twirling skill. Rounding off this talented cast are Monica Campbell as the scatterbrained Madame Parole and Frank Jones, Jr., as the dashing young lieutenant fresh off the boat from France. Monicas Madame is cunning as a fox as she skillfully avoids paying her bills and Franks complete lack of awareness of what has transpired in the shop on Christmas Eve is a nice capper to the plot. Both actors add brilliant splashes of color to complete the portrait of the three angels. The Christmas season seems to start earlier and earlier every year but I think youll enjoy the backspin that My Three Angels gives to the message of good will toward men. The show opened Thursday and performances will continue on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Nov. 24. Evening performances begin at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances are matinees beginning at 2 p.m. Seeing this wonderful cast perform is a bargain at $9 a ticket, so call the box office at 419-238-9689 and make your reservation soon.

Unions sets sights on governors race

TOLEDO (AP) Union leaders are now looking ahead at Ohios governors race after knocking off a big city mayor who they say was their top political target this year. Organized labor helped oust Toledos mayor an ally of Gov. John Kasich who infuriated unions two years ago by appearing in a TV commercial backing the collective bargaining law that Ohio voters later overturned. Democrats and labor officials believe that independent Toledo Mayor Mike Bells loss two weeks ago to another, union-backed independent was fueled by his endorsement of the Republican plan to limit collective bargaining for public workers. A lot of what our membership responded to was that Mayor Bell aligned himself so closely with Gov. Kasich, said Mike Gillis, a spokesman for the Ohio AFL-CIO. Kasichs critics are hoping that there is enough anger left over from the contentious debate in 2011 to defeat him. But defeating the governor will be a much bigger challenge than taking out Toledos mayor, who

had fallen out of favor with unions in a town dominated by organized labor. Unions plan to remind voters often it was the governor who signed the law that would have prohibited more than 350,000 public employees from negotiating health care and pension benefits and would have banned public employee strikes. They also are warning that there is a movement led by conservatives to follow the lead of Michigan and Indiana by turning Ohio into a right-to-work state. Kasich has distanced himself from rightto-work supporters who want to ban mandatory union membership and prohibit Ohio unions from charging dues to non-members. He has said that making Ohio a right-to-work state is not one of his priorities. The governor told reporters following the November election that hes not sure if the debate over collective bargaining will continue to be an issue during his bid for a second term. I would hope in the election next year the campaign is about issues and not what weve been able to see in the past, he said.

TOLEDO (AP) Ohios farmers are projected to haul in a much bigger corn crop this fall over a year ago. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Ohio should have the nations seventh-biggest corn crop with 632 million bushels, which would be about a 40 percent increase over 2012. Farmers in the state on average are projected to get 174 bushels per acre. A year ago, the average yield in the state was 123 bushels per acre. How that breaks down depends a lot on location. Farmers tell The (Toledo) Blade that yields will vary quite a bit because of strong summer storms that drenched some fields. Its kind of a mixed bag, considering the weather we had, said Mike Libben, a farmer in Oak Harbor, which is just east of Toledo. The U.S. agriculture department expects 2013 to end with a record corn harvest nationwide, predicting that farmers will bring in a little less than 14 billion bushels. That would be a 30 percent increase over a year ago when many corn-producing states suffered through a long drought.

1,800 rare US coins sell for $23M in NYC auction

NEW YORK (AP) Nearly 2,000 rare American coins amassed over 90 years by a 102-year-old Missouri collector have sold for $23 million at a two-day New York City auction. Heritage Auctions Co-Chairman Jim Halperin says Sunday retired St. Louis lawyer Eric P. Newman began collecting in the 1930s, only paying about $7,500 for the 1,800 piece collection. Halperin says a 1795 U.S. silver dollar in almost pristine condition sold for $910,625 and another one from 1799 sold for $822,500 in the online and in-person auction. He says a rare quarterdollar from 1796, the first year the denomination was produced by the U.S. Mint, sold for $1,527,500. He says Newman paid only $100 for it. Proceeds from the sale will go toward supporting the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society in Missouri.

Family of Newtown victim starts triathlon program

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) Chase Kowalski loved to run, bike and swim. Most of all he loved to race. The summer before he was killed inside Sandy Hook Elementary School with 25 other students and staff, the 7 year old competed in his first triathlon. Wearing swim shoes and riding his red Lightning McQueen bicycle inspired by the speedy character from the movie Cars, Chase competed in a 20-yard swim, a half-mile ride and a third-of-a-mile run. He finished first in his age group. Now Chases family has started a foundation in his memory that will help other children experience the thrill of the race. He swam and he biked and he ran every day, that was the essence of who he was, his mother Rebecca said. How could we not honor him in this way? The Chase Kowalski Memorial Fund is teaming with the Greater Waterbury YMCA to support that organizations existing triathlon program for kids, and work to spread the program across the country. Chase ran competitively for the first time when he was just 2 years old, earning ribbons and Popsicles for his races. He ran three that day, begging his mother to let him do longer distances after each race. Rebecca Kowalski cried as she described how a 5-year-old friend wearing the race number 26 went back to hold hands with Chase and help him cross the finish line after his first 400-yard race. Chase got his first bike when he was 4, and taught himself to swim in his backyard pool by watching Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte on television at the Olympics. At 6 years old, Chase asked if he could do one of those races where he could combine all three events. Stephen and I busted out laughing, Rebecca Kowalski said, referring to her husband. We said, Dude thats called a triathlon, maybe when youre 16. After much cajoling from her son, Kowalski went on line to research whether anyone offered triathlons for kids. She found one scheduled for a week later in Mansfield, about 90 minutes away. The YMCA project, now called the Race4Chase Kids Triathlon Program, will train children for six weeks during the summer in the fundamentals of swimming, racing and bicycling, culminating with a short-course triathlon, where the kids will earn medals. Self-esteem is a big part of this, said Jim ORourke, the executive director of the Greater Waterbury YMCA. When you see a kid who could not even swim six weeks before complete this event, and see that look on their face. It lets them know that they can achieve. The foundation is working with the YMCA to create protocols and a package that will allow other organizations across the country to set up similar Race4Chase triathlons, Rebecca Kowalski said. Two other Connecticut YMCAs are in talks to have races as early as next summer. A Race4Chase triathlon is being planned for Newtown-area kids next July in Monroe, where Sandy Hook kids are currently attending school. A lot of the funding is coming from athletes. The Kowalskis fireplace is covered with medals that have been sent to them, some anonymously, by marathoners, triathletes, and others who have heard Chases story. Many raise money by collecting pledges for the miles they complete, logging them on the foundation website. The goal is to get to 1 million miles. Runners have tallied a little over 5,000 miles so far. One of Stephens childhood friends, Kevin Bresnahan of Colchester, Conn., recently completed 1,000 miles for Race4Chase, beginning the last leg of his endeavor at the high school where Chase ran his first races. There he left one of two batons he created with Chases name on them. I left a note inside about paying it forward, taking the baton and doing something athletic with it, and passing it on, he said. An 11-year-old girl, Alexis Garrity, took the baton to Florida, where she completed her first 5K in October. She had never run a mile before joining the group that helped Bresnahan finish his run. It was way harder than I thought it would be, she said. I had to keep going I had to finish and not let anybody down especially Chases family. She has passed the baton to a family friend, who had lost a son at a young age. That woman plans to run a race on Dec. 14 in St. Augustine, Fla., and then pass the baton. Rebecca Kowalski said that is the kind of thing she and her husband, Stephen, had hoped for when she started Race4Chase. It keeps his spirit alive, she said. Its hard, but it makes me feel good that he inspires people to just go and do things, and inspires families to do things together. Race4Chase: Race4Chase.html

Thor holds box-office top spot with $38.5M

NEW YORK (AP) In an unlikely battle of sequels, Thor: The Dark World bested The Best Man Holiday at the box office. Disneys Thor: The Dark World continued its box-office reign with $38.5 million in its second week of release, according to studio estimates Sunday. Opening 15 years after the original The Best Man, Universals The Best Man Holiday opened strongly with $30.6 million. Drawing an overwhelmingly female and African-American audience, The Best Man Holiday was a surprise challenger for the mighty Thor. The R-rated romantic comedy, with an ensemble cast including Morris Chestnut and Taye Diggs, debuted with more than three times the box office of 1999s The Best Man. That film opened with $9 million. Marvels Norse superhero, however, has been hammering audiences around the globe. Thor: The Dark World made $52.5 million internationally over the weekend, bringing its worldwide total to $479.8 million. With Chris Hemsworth as the title character and Tom Hiddleston as the popular villain Loki, the Thor franchise has proven to be one of Marvels most successful. Just as Thor approached the half-billion mark, Warner Bros. space adventure Gravity crossed it in its seventh week of release.

The Best Man Holiday was the only new wide-release opening over the weekend, as the marketplace clears out for the release of Hunger Games: Catching Fire. In limited release, Alexander Paynes black-and-white Midwest road trip Nebraska opened in four locations with a strong $35,000 per theater average for Paramount Pictures. Martin Scorseses The Wolf of Wall Street was originally slated to open, but was postponed to Dec. 25 by Paramount. Expected to be one of the years biggest debuts, Lionsgates Catching Fire will abruptly close the box-office window for Thor next weekend. Catching Fire opened in Brazil over the weekend, earning $6.3 million. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. 1. Thor: The Dark World, $38.5 million ($52.5 million international). 2. The Best Man Holiday, $30.6 million. 3. Last Vegas, $8.9 million. 4. Free Birds, $8.3 million. 5. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, $7.7 million. 6. Gravity, $6.3 million.

Ohio boys letter comforted JFK taps bugler

TOLEDO (AP) Army bugler Keith Clark waited for hours on that cold day in 1963 to play one last time for the president his president. This somber duty, the sounding of taps at military ceremonies and funerals, was a familiar responsibility for the principal trumpet player in the U.S. Army Band. Just two weeks before, Sgt. Clark played at Arlington National Cemetery during a Veterans Day ceremony. That day which to a grieving nation must have felt as if it belonged to a different, distant past he stood near John F. Kennedy as the president stared straight ahead, shoulders squared, feet precisely placed. On Nov. 25, 1963, the bugler returned to Arlington, awaiting President Kennedys funeral procession. His assassination three days earlier shocked a nation, which was still in disbelief. After deafening volleys of rifle fire, the camera and the eyes of the country turned to Sgt. Clark, tasked with summing up the mournful occasion with a melody played not just for a nation but a widow. He pointed the bell of his bugle to Jacqueline Kennedy and began. On the sixth note of taps a catch, a warble, one slight crack. The missed note would reverberate through history, encapsulating a nations pain. Most Americans have the sense that he didnt do it on purpose, said Sgt. Clarks oldest daughter Nancy McColley, 64, who watched the funeral procession and her father on a television set in the familys Arlington, Va., recreation room. But it seemed to fit the feeling and the dynamic of the day. We were heartbroken as a nation. Sitting in another house several states away, fifthgrader Ed Hunter watched on a black-and-white TV in Plymouth, Ohio. Like so many children, Hunter, now 60 and living just outside Toledo in Sylvania Township, learned about the presidents death at school. His principal came to the door and broke the news to his teacher. The class clustered around a transistor radio. School was canceled the day of the funeral. Watching at home, young Eddie Hunter, who had a month before started trumpet lessons and playing in the school band, paid close attention to the historic ceremony at Arlington. The playing of taps was kind of interesting to me on the sixth note he didnt quite hit it cleanly, Hunter recalled. He sort of cracked a little bit and, being a budding trumpet player, I thought, Oh, my gosh, he must feel awful. He wanted to console his fellow musician and took to his sisters typewriter to punch out a letter addressed simply to the bugler at the presidents funeral in Washington. Anybody is bound to make a tiny mistake in front of millions opon millions of people. At first I did not notice it, at first untile they reran the picture. YOU SHOULD HERE SOME OF THE THINGS I PLAY, wrote little Eddie. Back in Arlington, Sgt. Clark received numerous letters, all positive, about his rendition of taps. The imperfect note touched listeners. Letter writers told him he expressed the sorrow of a nation, and urged him not to feel badly about the mistake. He was a man of great faith, so I think any personal feelings he may have had about the incident, he took those feelings to God and left them there. I dont think he spent a lot of time worrying about it. Essentially his country called, and he answered the call, said McColley, whose father died in 2002. He did his best; thats all that any country requires of its citizens. One particular letter provided Sgt. Clark some cheer. A short note, poorly spelled in spots, from a young Ohio boy. My mom said he got quite a chuckle out of that. (It) added a little bit of levity to a really

uncomfortable position he was in. It lightened the mood, McColley said. She now has the original copy of Eddies letter. Like the others, it will be passed down to future generations. When you are growing up and your dad makes a mistake on national TV, that is not your shining moment, she said. We realize now that dad has this very special place in history. Hunter hadnt thought much about the letter he wrote 50 years ago, though he kept photographs and a handwritten reply from Sgt. Clark, who hoped the boy was practicing hard on your trumpet. The young player wrote the bugler once more and reported he was trying to be a fine musician like you. Taps historian Jari Villanueva, a Baltimore bugler who retired from the Air Force Band, discovered the letters between the bugler and the boy while doing research. He corresponded with Sgt. Clark before his death, and knew he had received letters after the presidents funeral. Recently, Villanueva spent time with his family in Port Charlotte, Fla., where McColley lives, and saw some of those letters. The childs note struck Villanueva, who tracked down Hunter using Internet search tools. Hunter played the trumpet through high school and his first year of college at Eastern Kentucky University. As a child he wrote letters to other notables, including astronauts. Hes still moved by the story that has reverberated 50 years later. This is not about a guy making a mistake. I mean, he did an otherwise flawless job, Hunter said. He served his country well, and I think thats what the ceremony, you know, is the fact that he did what he did, and it touched so many people in so many ways. Sgt. Clark was asked again and again to explain that one lapse amid a lifetime of perfectly played notes. The days brisk temperatures froze his lips, and the strict requirements to stand at attention didnt afford him time to warm up, his daughter said. Add to that the enormous pressure of the occasion, the meddling of television crews catering to the at-home audience, and the recent roar from nearby rifles which made it difficult to hear. He was under this perfectly understandable amount of strain, said Villanueva, who likens the broken note to the crack in the Liberty Bell. When Sgt. Clark learned of the presidents assassination, he immediately got a haircut anticipating he could be asked to play during the ceremony. He found out early the morning of the funeral that he would indeed sound taps as a nation watched and mourned. He taught us to be very patriotic, so this was his president just like it was everybody elses. It wasnt just a duty. He lost a president that day like everyone else did, McColley said.

Jays rally in big way behind Jettinghoff to eliminate Senecas

By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer FINDLAY St. Johns spotted Tiffin Calvert 10 points in the first 15-plus minutes of their Region 26 semifinal at Findlays Donnell Stadium Saturday night. The rally made up for it and then some, with the Blue Jays rattling off 42 straight points in a 42-10 dismantling. St. Johns (8-4) will play Arlington 7 p.m. next Saturday at Lima Stadium. The main culprit for the Senecas (7-5) was Blue Jay senior tailback, who accounted for all six touchdowns en route to rushing for 199 yards on 23 carries. I dont remember ever scoring that many times in a game, Jettinghoff explained. I give all the credit to my offensive line and (fullback) Luke (MacLennan) doing the dirty work up front. However, it was the Senecas that drew first blood just 12 seconds into the contest. At the 20, Austin Ball ((20 rushes, 156 yards) took a handoff from quarterback Tyler Long (19 totes, 74 yards; 3-of-16 passing, 9 yards) over right guard and found things to his liking as he tore off an 80-yard scoring jaunt. Michael Smith added the kick for a 7-0 edge. The Blue and Gold defense held the Senecas to 166 yards of offense the rest of the way. The Jays garnered a first down on their first series but had to punt. After forcing a 3-and-out, the Jays marched from the 44 to the Tiffin 26 in five plays plus a pass interference on the Senecas but on 4th-and-5, junior quarterback Nick Martz (5-of-6 passing, 65 yards) was sacked for a 4-yard loss by Marcus Somers. Calvert went on a 12-play drive also helped by a pass interference on the Jays that reached the Blue Jay 21. Smith with the wind at his back punched a 38-yard field goal through the uprights for a 10-0 lead with 8:57 left in the second period. their hips. Our offensive line started to get hat on hat and Luke kept doing a great job of leading on our O. People dont realize what he does to key our offense on every play. We just had to get our anger out, Ginter said. As an offensive linemen, you can also see it in your opponents eyes when they are starting to get tired. The Jays defense forced another 3-and-out and started at the 30. Jettinghoff ran for five yards and then took a toss off right tackle, cut inside, trucked a safety at midfield and headed for the left sideline and the pylon with 2:08 remaining. Wrasman made it 14-10. Tiffin managed a pair of first downs including on 4th-and-2 from the 23 when the Jays jumped offside and effectively ended the half. On the second-half kickoff, Jettinghoff took the squib kick on the right numbers at the 16. He took off for the middle and battled through the mob at the 40, emerging out of the traffic and heading for the left sideline, outrunning the coverage team to the end zone. Wrasman made it 21-10 just 14 seconds into the third stanza. I dont know if Tyler set a record for scores or not I and my brothers (Scott and Chad) had our share of scores but he does a great job of beating the one defender that we cant account for in our offense, Schulte added. We told the kids we had to score coming out of the locker room but I wasnt expecting that on the kickoff. Defensively, Luke and our other defensive ends did a nice job of not letting their quarterback (Long) on the perimeter. Really, outside of the first play, we handled their offense well. The guy ahead of me got hurt and that made me mad, MacLennan noted. I was working at linebacker and defensive end all week and our whole job was to not let Long get outside of us; he did a lot of the work for them. See JAYS, page 7


St. Johns senior tailback Tyler Jettinghoff cuts inside Tiffin Calverts Dan Reineke during a Region 26 semifinal Saturday at Donnell Stadium. Jettinghoff accounted for all six touchdowns the Blue Jays scored in a 42-10 triumph. (Delphos Herald/Larry Heiing) We talked to the kids before the game about coming out ready to play and perhaps we werent. Their quickness, especially the front four, also took us by surprise; they were running right past our guys, Jays coach Todd Schulte assessed. The Jays then began to find something that worked the 35 and 36 O and their offensive line (from left to right) Spencer Ginter, Wes Buettner, Ryan Shumacher, Kellen Schomaeker and Austin Schulte started to control the Seneca front wall. Jettinghoff began to get untracked, running eight times for 53 yards in the 9-play drive. Jettinghoff finished off the 73-yard sequence from the Tiffin 2, taking a toss off left tackle and heading to the end zone. Ben Wrasman tacked on the point-after for a 10-7 deficit with 4:39 left in the second period. We just figured out we could run one play; we tried to simplify things as much as possible. All we did was alternate which side, Schulte explained. Toward the end of the second quarter, we could sense they were tiring as well; between plays, they were slower to get up and they had their hands on

Buckeyes ground game dominant over Illinois

Associated Press The passing game just wasnt working for Ohio State on Saturday at Illinois. Thirty attempts, 13 completions and a modest 150 yards. Maybe it was the wind, as quarterback Braxton Miller said. Maybe something else, because Illini quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase completed 33 passes for 288 yards. Whatever the case, it gave the Buckeyes (10-0, 6-0 Big Ten) a chance to put the ball on the ground Big-Ten style. And, in a bad sign for Indiana, Michigan and any other teams left in the Buckeyes path, it worked all too well. Ohio State pounded the Illini for 441 yards on 42 carries in a 60-35 win. Yeah, we went back to basics, Miller said. We just handed the ball to Carlos (Hyde) or me and weve got the best offensive line in the Big Ten or the country. On Sunday, the Buckeyes dropped from third to fourth in the AP poll. Hyde piled up 246 yards on 24 carries, along with four rushing touchdowns. Miller had 184 yards on the ground and a score. The wind blew at a steady 18- mph for much of the game. Miller, who two years ago threw just four times in a windy 17-7 win in Champaign, said he struggled with the weather. The wind was so tricky at times, he added. But when Illinois (3-7, 0-6) started coming back from a 28-0 deficit, the turn to the run game let Ohio State grind the Illini down. Hyde blew through the tired Illinois defense for a 55-yard touchdown and another from 51 yards less than two minutes apart late in the fourth quarter. No question we wore down, Illinois coach Tim Beckman said. While the Buckeyes found out just how much they can rely on their running game, Hyde said the Buckeyes failure to put away a team they led by four touchdowns early shows they have work to do if they want to keep winning and stay in the hunt for Big Ten and national titles. A win is a win, but Im not pleased with the way we performed today, he added. If we (want to) get to where we want to go this year, we have to get better. For his part, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said hes finished talking about the big picture and those goals. We have to make sure that our focus is getting better each week instead of the national stuff, he added. I think Im learning a lesson to shut my mouth and quit worrying about this and that. Beckmans Illini, meanwhile, are left an end to their talk of bowl eligibility, a 20-game Big Ten losing streak and just two games left at Purdue and against Northwestern to end it. BUCKEYES BUZZ: A game looks differently from different perspectives. For instance, Ohio States 60-35 win at Illinois on Saturday was either a valiant comeback by an undertalented team or a steamroller-like victory by an unbeaten squad. Of course, there are also shadings on each of those opinions as well.

COLUMBUS The Ohio High School Athletic Association announced Sunday the pairings and host sites for the third round of the football playoffs, which are the regional semifinals in Division I and the regional finals in Divisions II through VII. Divisions II, III, IV and VI will play at 7:30 p.m. Friday, while Divisions I, V and VII will play at 7 p.m. Saturday. Included in the third-round pairings below is how the Division II through VII state semifinal regional champions will be matched up in the state semifinals Nov. 29-30. Playoff pairings follow the regional bracket format as determined by the final computer ratings released Nov. 3. A total of 224 schools qualified for the postseason out of the 714 that played football this season (31.4 percent). First-round games were played Nov. 8-9 at the home site of the higher seed, or the site of the higher seeds choosing. Neutral sites for all other rounds are determined by the OHSAA. Beginning this season, there are seven divisions in the football playoffs. The largest 72 schools are in Division I, which is divided into two regions. The top 16 teams in both Division I regions have qualified for the playoffs. There are approximately 108 schools each in Divisions II through VII, which are each divided into four regions.

Bengals score 31 in 2nd quarter, beat Browns 41-20

Illinois (3-7, 0-6 Big Ten) coach Beckman was displeased that his team fell behind 28-0, thrilled it fought back to 47-35 in the fourth quarter and unhappy that his team then allowed the Buckeyes to tack on two long Hyde runs (51 and 55 yards) for touchdowns in the waning moments. To start off, (Ohio State) is a good football team. No question about it. Theyve got some skilled athletes, very well-coached, he added. I thought our players battled to the dang end; they never came up short, they continued to fight. Probably the last three or four minutes, as I told them, were disappointing times but I was proud of the way they competed and proud of the way this coaching staff coached it. Weve got two remaining football games and we want our seniors to leave winners and to win that football game that is necessary for them to get this losing streak done. Theyve worked extremely hard. The loss was the Illinis 20th straight in Big Ten play. Illini QB Nathan Scheelhaase completed 33-of-50 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions. He fell back on another sport to provide his unique perspective. You look at it from a boxing standpoint, we came out and they knocked us down twice in part of the first two rounds, he said. I was just so happy with the way we responded. I mean we stood up and we fought until the 15th round.

Dalton had a horrid start that helped Cleveland get a promising early lead. He threw two passes that were picked off by Joe Haden, who ran one of them back 29 yards for a touchdown and a 13-0 lead in the first quarter. When the quarter ended, Cleveland fell apart. Dalton threw touchdown passes of 25 yards to Jermaine Gresham and 6 yards to Mohamed Sanu, emerging from his recent funk. He has thrown eight interceptions in his last three games, a major factor in the two overtime losses. The Bengals were just getting started on the highest-scoring quarter in their history. Undrafted rookie Jayson DiManche blocked Spencer Lannings punt and safety Tony Dye promoted from the practice squad one day earlier returned it 24 yards for a touchdown. Cleveland hadnt had a punt blocked in 20 years. It was surreal, Dye said. You never expect that to happen in a game, let alone your first game. More surreal to come. One minute and 50 seconds later, linebacker Vontaze Burfict forced Chris Ogbonnaya to fumble after a catch and ran the ball back 13 yards for another touchdown. Mike Nugents 41-yard field goal capped off the quarter and made it 31-13. It was one of those comebacks that the Bengals will look back on as a potential turning point. I hope I am looking back from somewhere in New York City, coach Marvin Lewis said, referring to the site of the next Super Bowl. I think that is the thing that our guys have in their mind, to win every game that we can. This is an urgent month for us coming up. First, we had to take care of November. We have bigger fish to fry.

Jimmie Johnson wins 6th NASCAR championship

Associated Press HOMESTEAD, Fla. Back on top with only two NASCAR greats left to catch, Jimmie Johnson won his sixth championship in eight years Sunday and staked his claim as one of the most dominant competitors in sports history. Johnson, needing only to finish 23rd or better to spoil Matt Kenseths career season, was on cruise control most of the day at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Johnsons lone hiccup came when traffic stacked-up on a restart and he and Kenseth made slight contact, causing Johnson to plunge 15 spots in the field with damage to his fender. He rallied to finish ninth and beat Kenseth for the title by 19 points. Now looming large in Johnsons windshield is the mark of seven titles held by Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt. Johnson barely got to finish his celebratory burnouts before the debate began: Where does Six-Pack rank among the greats in NASCAR? I have six and well see if I can get seven, Johnson replied. Time will tell. I think we need to save the argument until I hang up the helmet, then its worth the argument. Lets wait until I hang up the helmet until we really start thinking about this. Kenseth, needing a Johnson collapse to have any shot at the title, positioned himself to pounce should anything go awry. Kenseth led a race-high 144 laps and finished second to Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin. It was just unbelievable year for us. Obviously, we wanted to win the championship as good as we ran all year, said Kenseth, winner of seven races in his first season with JGR. Kenseths effort just wasnt enough against a Hendrick Motorsports team that wouldnt be denied for a third consecutive year. If Jimmie would have got a flat or something, that would have been all right, Kenseth lamented. Never seen anything like this in the sport and probably never will again. Maybe hell retire. Johnson won a record five straight titles from 2006-10, was mathematically eliminated before the 2011 finale and was back in the title hunt last season. Only he had a tire failure in the penultimate race at Phoenix and then a mechanical failure in the finale to lose the championship to Brad Keselowski. His 2-year drought is over and his crew was ready for the party on the South Beach. You better get a sip of that (water) bottle; its the only healthy liquid youre going to get all night, crew chief Chad Knaus radioed Johnson after he crossed the finish line. Johnson planned to savor every moment of the celebration and his championship reign. This is extremely sweet. I feel like those five years were a blur. And things happen so fast, Johnson added. Its not that I didnt enjoy it or appreciate it or respect what happened. It just went by so fast it seems like. Now, Im really going to slow things down here and enjoy it. This is so, so sweet. It was just as special for Hamlin, who bounced back from a fractured vertebra earlier this season that sidelined him for over a month. Hamlin hasnt been the same since and Sundays victory, his first of the year, extended his winning streak to eight seasons. Is the year over yet? a grinning Hamlin asked in Victory Lane. Man, I wanted to keep that streak alive. Hamlins celebration was brief as the victory stage was cleared for Johnson. Hamlin nearly stood atop the podium in 2010, when he took Johnson down to the wire, only to fade in the finale as Johnson claimed his record fifth consecutive title.

BALLOT BREAKDOWN: Iron Bowl frenzy; Baylor or OSU?

By RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press Breaking down The Associated Press college football poll after Week 12 of the regular season. LONG STAY. LONG WAIT Alabamas stay at No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll has reached rare territory as the Crimson Tide head toward an Iron Bowl against No. 6 Auburn that is big enough to fill two weeks of hype at least in the Deep South. Alabama remained topranked in the Top 25 released Sunday, with 55 first-place votes from the media panel. No. 2 Florida State has five first-place votes. Oregon was fifth and Auburn was sixth, the Tigers moving up one spot after a miraculous victory kept them in the championship hunt both Southeastern Conference and national. Alabama slogged through a 20-7 victory at Mississippi State but paid virtually no price at the polls, the benefits of being 2-time defending BCS champs. The Tide is Teflon when it comes to the type of picky criticism that teams such as Ohio State and Baylor get. Alabama has been No. 1 since the preseason, a total of 13 polls. Only six preseason No. 1 teams have had longer uninterrupted stays in a single season than the Tide, including Southern California (16 polls) in 2004 and Florida State (17 polls) in 1999, the only wire-to-wire champions. The other four preseason No. 1 teams that have spent longer at No. 1 than Alabama all either lost in a bowl game (Nebraska, 1983; Southern California, 2005; Ohio State 2006) or lost in a conference title game (Oklahoma, 2003). Those four were No. 1 for 15 straight polls. The Tide faces Chattanooga this week, part of the SECs scheduling strategy to work in a late-season breather. Florida State has embraced it as well. The Seminoles play Idaho. So its safe to pencil in the Tide for 14 straight polls at No. 1. To get to 15, will be much tougher.


Auburns remarkable turnaround season reached new heights in unfathomable fashion with a 43-38 victory over Georgia. The Tigers (10-1, 6-1), who are off this week, can win the SEC West by beating Alabama and make their way into the national championship discussion by winning the SEC title. This is big stuff. ___ MOVING UP Baylor slipped past Ohio State and into No. 3 in the latest Top 25. For Buckeyes fans, its just another slight. For Bears backers, a small bit of vindication for a team that started the season unranked and has now matched the best ranking in program history. The Bears were No. 3 in 1953.

The St. Johns D helped by Wrasmans kickoff and coverage unit pinning the foe at the 13 forced another 3-and-out and used a 25-yard punt by Smith to start at the Tiffin 41. Four plays later including a great leaping catch by Evan Hays from Martz for 30 yards at the 2, the rewind button was used again as Jettinghoff took a toss off left tackle. Wrasman made it 28-10 with 8:12 showing in the third. Tiffin, with their chances dwindling, tried to retaliate, marching from the 36 to the Jays 37 in six plays but a 2-yard loss by Long and a batted pass by Cody Looser ended that threat. The Jays traveled from the 39 to the Tiffin 12 in nine plays but on play 10, a 4th-and-3, Martz was tackled a yard short of the first down. Tiffin again had a 3-and-out and the Jays commenced at the Tiffin 36. A down later, Jettinghoff took a toss off left tackle, veered outside, found the sideline and the end zone. Wrasman put in the conversion for a 35-10 edge with 9:58 left. The Senecas tried to answer again but a holding call shortcircuited the effort and a 4th-down incompletion gave the Jays the pigskin at the Calvert 48. McLennan (10 rushes, 79 yards) ran three times for 35 yards, Jettinghoff for five and then, from the 8, Jettinghoff took a toss off left tackle, bounced outside and beat the defense to the pylon with 4:13 to go. Wrasman accounted for the final point.

Baylor closes on Ohio State in BCS standings

By RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press Baylor closed in on third-place Ohio State in the latest BCS standings. The Bears and Buckeyes have little hope of catching first-place Alabama or second-place Florida State in the race to the BCS championship game without a loss from one of the top two. Ohio State and Baylor are fighting for the right to be next in line if the Tide or Noles slip up. The Buckeyes are ahead of the Bears in both the Harris and USA Today coaches polls but behind Baylor in the computer rankings. The combined average of the six computer rankings has the Bears third, with Alabama and Florida State tied for first. Ohio State is fifth in the computers. Ohio State has a BCS average of .8869. Baylors is .8856. And the Bears look primed to pass the Buckeyes next week if they can get through their toughest test yet. Baylor plays at Oklahoma State on Saturday. The Cowboys are 10th in the BCS standings and a game behind the Bears in the Big 12 standings. The Bears play at TCU on Thanksgiving weekend and then close with Texas at home. Ohio State plays Indiana next week, then goes to Michigan. The Buckeyes can clinch a spot in the Big Ten championship game by beating the Hoosiers. Michigan State would be the likely opponent in that game. Oregon is fifth in the standings and Auburn is sixth. Both have one loss. The Tigers have moved into position to be a threat in the national championship race. Their only game left is against No. 1 Alabama in two weeks and its for a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game. Winning the SEC title might not be enough to get Auburn past undefeated Baylor or Ohio State but itll make for an interesting decision for poll voters if it plays out that way. The SEC has won the last seven national championships and its title game has become a default play-in game to the BCS title game. Further down the standings, potential

BCS busters Fresno State at 15th and Northern Illinois at 16th each dropped a spot this week. Either the Bulldogs or Huskies could earn an automatic bid by reaching the top-12 in the final standings. If they both get there, the highest rated one gets the bid. Central Florida, which is leading the American Athletic Conference, is 18th and that could open the backdoor for a BCS buster, the way it did last season for NIU. If Fresno State and NIU can finish in the top 16 and rank ahead of the AACs champ, the highest ranked one gets an automatic bid. The key for each is staying unbeaten. Fresno State finishes with New Mexico at home, at San Jose State and a possible rematch with Boise State in the Mountain West conference title game. Northern Illinois is at Toledo and then home for Western Michigan before a possible Mid-American Conference championship game with either Buffalo or Bowling Green.

Team percentages are derived by dividing a teams actual voting points by a maximum 2,625 possible points in the Harris Interactive Poll and 1,550 possible points in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Six computer rankings are used to determine the overall computer component. The highest and lowest ranking for each team is dropped and the remaining four are added and divided to produce a Computer Rankings Percentage. The six computer ranking providers are Anderson & Hester, Richard Billingsley, Colley Matrix, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin and Peter Wolfe. Each computer ranking accounts for schedule strength in its formula.

Promising discovery could lead to new diabetes treatment

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have diabetes. I read that scientists had made a major discovery about how people with diabetes could naturally make more insulin. How excited should I be about this? DEAR READER: I believe you are referring to a discovery by the laboratory of a colleague here at Harvard, Dr. Douglas Melton. Its a great story. About 20 years ago, Dr. Melton was a young scientist who was studying the basic biology of how cells work. He wasnt focusing on any particular disease. Then his infant son developed severe Type 1 diabetes. Thats a disease in which the bodys immune system attacks the pancreas, a spongy little organ inside the abdomen. The attack destroys the pancreas cells that produce insulin, called beta cells. As a result, the body does not have enough insulin, the hormone that directs blood sugar -- our bodys main source of energy -- into our cells. Sugar levels rise in the blood, and the bodys cells dont get enough energy. Prompted by his sons illness, Dr. Melton turned the focus of his scientific work to trying to cure diabetes. First, he and other scientists discovered, to their surprise,

Dr. Anthony L. Komaroff, M.D. a

Ask Doctor K
some good news and some bad news. The good news: The pancreas did have a way of making new beta cells. The old cells could divide, forming young beta cells. The bad news: The pancreas didnt seem able to produce new beta cells in nearly sufficient amounts to make up for the cells killed by diabetes. Undiscouraged, Dr. Melton reasoned that if older beta cells could be prompted to make new young beta cells -- in any amount -- then the body probably had chemical signals that drove the process. He began to search for them. In early May 2013, Dr. Melton reported in the prestigious scientific journal Cell that his research team had indeed found such a chemical signal, a hormone, in mice. The hormone is made in the liver and in fat, and travels through the blood to the pancreas. It is able to coax an old, burned-out pancreas to make lots of new young beta cells. In mice with


diabetes, the treatment caused dramatic improvement in blood sugar. Dr. Melton named the hormone that he discovered betatrophin. It will, of course, take much more research in mice and then in humans to determine if this newly discovered hormone can serve as a treatment for human diabetes. So, to answer your question, its too soon to get excited. Still, this is just the latest example of an even larger scientific discovery that has played out over the past 20 years. The human body has much greater power to repair itself naturally than we once imagined. Scientists just need to discover a few tricks to help stimulate the bodys own natural healing, as in this case. To transform this important discovery into a new treatment for diabetes we need more medical research. Encourage your members of Congress to push for more funding.

Aid missions boost US Storms troops image, readiness

ABOARD THE USS GEORGE WASHINGTON (AP) As soon as Navy pilot Matthew Stafford puts his helicopter down in the village of Borongan, he is rushed by dozens of local men who form a line to unload the supplies and water he has flown in from the mothership, the USS George Washington aircraft carrier. Children swarm him as he breaks out a box of sweets. On the Philippine islands of Leyte and Samar that were shattered by Typhoon Haiyan, there is no doubt about it: the U.S. military has been a godsend. It is awesome to see this, says one grateful villager. They are saving us. But while U.S. military support can be critical when disasters like Haiyan strike, staging massive humanitarian relief missions for allies in need isnt just about being a good neighbor. They can be a strategic and publicity gold mine for U.S. troops whose presence in Asia isnt always portrayed in such a favorable light and a powerful warning to countries that arent on board. These disasters are not unique only to the Philippines. It will send a signal to all of Southeast Asia, to Asia, that the U.S. is serious about its presence here, said Philippine political analyst Ramon Casiple. Its easy to translate this capability for disaster handling into handling warfare. This is the new orientation of the task forces. From the military perspective, humanitarian missions like the ongoing Operation Damayan in the Philippines offer concrete benefits the chance to operate in far-flung places, build military-to-military alliances and get realistic training that they may later apply to their primary mission, which will always be fighting and winning wars. Crisis response planning is a skillset for the military, so when you have an opportunity to execute crisis response its good for your planning team, said Rear Adm. Mark C. Montgomery, who commands the George Washington strike group, stationed offshore in the Gulf of Leyte. So, sure, there is a benefit there. But in reality the reason we do this mission is because in the Navys list of missions this is one of the significant efforts we plan for. In the week since the disaster, the Philippines has started to receive support from military forces around the region. Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan have sent aircraft or personnel and more support is expected soon from Brunei, Great Britain, New Zealand and Thailand. But none has come close to matching the U.S. Equally importantly, Americas regional rival China has not sent any military personnel, and contributed relatively tiny financial aid.

Teacher killings bring professions risks to light

Associated Press among other things. But the October deaths, one day apart, of Nevada middle school math teacher Michael Landsberry, who was shot on a basketball court by a suicidal 12-year-old, and Massachusetts high school math teacher Colleen Ritzer, who authorities said was attacked by a 14-year-old student inside a school bathroom, have brought the issue to the forefront. About 4 percent of public school teachers reported they had been attacked physically during the 2007-08 school year, according to the U.S. Department of Education, citing a 2012 school safety report. Seven percent were threatened with injury by a student. A 2011 survey found that 80 percent of teachers reported being intimidated, harassed, assaulted or otherwise victimized at least once during the previous year. Of the 3,000 teachers surveyed, 44 percent reported physical offenses including

When a 16-year-old student slammed a metal trash can onto Philip Raimondos head, it did more than break open the history teachers scalp, knock him out and send him bleeding to the floor. It changed my whole world, Raimondo said about the attack in the school where he taught for 22 years. Experts say the phenomenon of student-on-teacher violence is too often ignored. Theres some reluctance to think that the teaching profession can be unsafe, said Dr. Dorothy Espelage of the University of Illinois. The educational psychology professor recently headed a national task force on classroom violence directed at teachers. The group found that little has been done to try to understand or prevent such incidents despite the potential implications on teacher retention and student performance,

thrown objects, student attacks and weapons shown, according to the American Psychological Association Task Force on Violence Directed Against Teachers, which conducted the national web-based survey. The task force recommended creating a national registry to track the nature and frequency of incidents, saying this would help develop plans for prevention and intervention. It also suggested that all educators be required to master classroom management before they are licensed to teach. Raimondo, who taught in Buffalo, N.Y., was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and thought about suicide after suffering a concussion and other head injuries that required 32 staples and more than 40 stitches. Unable to return to teaching, the history teacher who coached cross-country, girls basketball and softball remains in therapy and on medication today, nearly 10 years later.

I stepped outside and I heard it coming. My daughter was already in the basement, so I ran downstairs and grabbed her, crouched in the laundry room and all of a sudden I could see daylight up the stairway and my house was gone. An elderly man and his sister were killed when a tornado hit their home in the rural southern Illinois community of New Minden, said coroner Mark Styninger. A third person died in Washington, while two others perished in Massac county in the far southern part of the state, said Patti Thompson of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency. She did not provide details. With communications difficult and many roads impassable, it remained unclear how many people were killed or hurt. The Illinois National Guard said it had dispatched 10 firefighters and three vehicles to Washington to assist with immediate search and recovery operations. In the rural community of 16,000, whole blocks of houses were erased from the landscape and Illinois State Police Trooper Dustin Pierce said the tornado cut a path from one end of town to the other, knocking down power lines, uprooting trees and rupturing gas lines. An auto parts store with several people inside was reduced to a pile of bricks, metal and rebar; a battered car, its windshield impaled by a piece of lumber, was flung alongside it. Despite the devastation, all the employees managed to crawl out of the rubble


unhurt, Pierce said. I went over there immediately after the tornado, walking through the neighborhoods, and I couldnt even tell what street I was on, Washington Alderman Tyler Gee told WLS-TV. Just completely flattened some of the neighborhoods here in town, hundreds of homes. Among those who lost everything was Curt Zehr, who described the speed with which the tornado turned his farmhouse outside Washington into a mass of rubble scattered over hundreds of yards. His truck was sent flying and landed on an uprooted tree. They heard the siren... and saw (the tornado) right there and got into the basement, he said of his wife and adult son who were home at the time. Then, seconds later, when they looked out from their hiding place, the house was gone and the sun was out and right on top of them. At OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, spokeswoman Amy Paul said 37 patients had been treated, eight with injuries ranging from broken bones to head injuries that were serious enough to be admitted. Another hospital, Methodist Medical Center in Peoria, treated more than a dozen, but officials there said none of them were seriously injured. Steve Brewer, Methodist Medical Centers chief operating officer, said doctors and other medical professionals were setting up a temporary emergency care center to treat the injured before transporting them to hospitals, while others were dispatched to

search through the rubble for survivors. By nightfall, Trooper Pierce said there were reports of looting in Washington. About 90 minutes after the tornado destroyed homes in Washington, the storm darkened downtown Chicago. As the rain and high winds slammed into the area, officials at Soldier Field evacuated the stands and ordered the Bears and Baltimore Ravens off the field. Fans were allowed back to their seats shortly after 2 p.m. and the game resumed after about a 2-hour delay. Earlier, the Office of Emergency Management and Communications had issued a warning to fans, urging them to take extra precautions and ... appropriate measures to ensure their personal safety. Just how many tornadoes hit was unclear. According to the National Weather Services website, a total of 65 tornadoes had struck, the bulk of them in Illinois. But meteorologist Matt Friedlein said the total might fall because emergency workers, tornado spotters and others often report the same tornado. Still, when the weather service was issuing its warning that severe weather was bearing down on the Midwest, officials said the last such warning issued so late in the season in November came in 2005, and the result was an outbreak of 49 tornadoes. The storm followed warnings by the weather service that the storm was simply moving too fast for people to wait until they saw it to get ready.

Answers to Saturdays questions: The oldest letter in the alphabet is o, first used by Egyptians in about 3000 B.C. The newest letters are j and v. The consonant j was not distinguished from the vowel i until the 1600s and not until the Renaissance was the consonant v distinguished from the vowel u. The word nice is derived from the Latin nescius, or ignorant, which comes from nescire, or not to know. In the 14th and 15th centuries, the phrase a nice person connoted foolishness rather than agreeableness. Todays questions: How many people can be seated in Saint Peters Basilica?

Obama health care woes become credibility fight

WASHINGTON (AP) Throughout President Barack Obamas first four years in office, he prided himself on his ability to bounce back when much of Washington thought his presidency was in peril. But the political challenge posed by Obamas disastrous health care rollout is far greater than those he overcame during the nasty debt ceiling fight with Republicans, his stumbling campaign debate in 2012 or even the painful recession. This time, the president is fighting to regain trust and credibility with the American people. Those are the same qualities that helped keep him afloat during those earlier battles. Its legitimate for them to expect me to have to win back some credibility on this health care law in particular and on a whole range of these issues in general, Obama said during a news conference last week that turned into an extensive mea culpa for the health care failures consuming the White House.
