Unions enable parents to push for reform

By CHRISTINA HOAG The Associated Press LOS ANGELES Shoehorned into a small living room in a South Los Angeles apartment, a dozen parents discuss why their kids school ranks as one of the worst in the nations second-largest school district. The answers come quickly: Teachers are jaded; gifted pupils arent challenged; disabled students are isolated; the building is dirty and office staff treat parents disrespectfully. We know what the problem is were about fixing it, said Cassandra Perry, the Woodcrest Elementary School parent hosting the meeting. Were not against the administrators or the teachers union. Were honestly about the kids. School parent groups are no longer just about holding the next bake-sale fundraiser. Theyre about education reform. The Woodcrest mothers and fathers, all wearing buttons saying parent power, are one of the newly formed parents unions that are springing up from San Diego to Buffalo, N.Y., with the same goal to push schools to improve academic achievement. Behind the parent empowerment movement is a feisty Los Angeles-based nonprofit, Parent Revolution, which in 2010 pushed through a landmark law giving parents authority to force turnarounds at failing schools through a petition. Known as the parent trigger, the California law was the first of its kind in the nation. It inspired Texas and Mississippi to adopt similar laws and legislation is under consideration in 20 other states. Two states have voted down parent trigger bills.

Grant forms due Nov. 1

The postmark deadline to return grant applications for the Arnold C. Dienstberger Foundation is Nov. 1. The foundation grants awards to organizations for religious, charitable, scientific, literary, educational and other permitted public purpose. Applications can be obtained at the Delphos Public Library or from any foundation trustee, including Rick Miller, Bill Massa, Doug Harter, Jerry Gilden, John Nomina, Nick Clark, Doris Neumeier or Lonna Miller.

Parents have a different incentive structure than anyone else. Theyre the only ones who really care about kids.
Ben Austin, executive director, Parent Revolution Parents have a different incentive structure than anyone else, said Ben Austin, Parent Revolutions executive director. Theyre the only ones who really care about kids. Its a compelling argument for many parents. San Diego mother Teresa Drew founded United Parents for Education after her daughters reading and math scores fell below grade level for two years. The district is not doing enough to ensure teachers are effective and weed out bad educators, she said. I talked to other parents and found they had the same experience, Drew said. I have nothing against the PTA, but the problem for me is theres a T in PTA. This is parent-led. Unions say its oversimplistic to blame teachers. Parents should enlist educators in the solution, not dismiss them, they say. Its well meaning, but misguided, said Frank Wells, who heads the Southern California chapter of the California Teachers Association. Parents shouldnt be acting with authority in a vacuum. Parents already have a tool to leverage policy change school board elections, Wells See PARENTS, page 3A

A special Tae Kwon Do class was held at Hearts in Motion Saturday morning to teach children about safety and self-defense against predators.

Children kick it up on safety issues

BY STACY TAFF DELPHOS Saturday mornings are usually a time when children get to lounge around in their pajamas watching cartoons. This past Saturday morning, 16 children and their parents climbed two flights of stairs up to Hearts in Motion at 111 West Third Street for a child safety class where they learned Tae Kwon Do moves for self defense. Our goal today is to teach the kids some things they can use right away, Tae Kwon Do Master James P. Taylor said. Some things theyll have to practice a little on. Taylor owns two martial arts studios, one in Woodville and one in Columbus Grove. Taylor and Hearts in Motion Tae Kwon Do instructor Dusty Schnipke taught the children a series of kicks, blocks and punches to use if they ever need to defend themselves. Its good to learn this but the number one rule of Tae Kwon Do is to only use it in self defense, Taylor said. No hitting, kicking, punching or striking your grandparents or your parents, brothers and sisters, cousins, aunts and uncles, dogs, cats, hamsters or goldfish. Only use it when you need to defend yourself. The parents in attendance were given information to share with their children on how to prevent potentially dangerous situations. These included tips such as: Be alert, pay attention to surroundings and gut feelings; Dont take short cuts

Taylor and Schnipke also informed parents that its best not to list any personal information that can be seen publicly, such as names or who lives in the house. It was also suggested parents take the time to inform their children of what to do in emergency situations such as fires, tornadoes and burglary.

Marijuana-shaped candy alarms parents, officials

BUFFALO, N.Y. Candy shaped like marijuana thats showing up on store shelves around the country wont get kids high, but aghast city leaders and antidrug activists say the product and grocers carrying it represent a new low. Were already dealing with a high amount of drug abuse and drug activity and trying to raise children so they dont think using illegal substances is acceptable, said City Councilmember Darius Pridgen. So to have a licensed store sell candy to kids that depicts an illegal substance is just ignorant and irresponsible. The Pothead Ring Pots, Pothead Lollipops and bagged candy are distributed to retail stores by the novelty supply company Kalan LP of the Philadelphia suburb of Lansdowne. It also wholesales online for $1 for a lollipop and $1.50 for a package of three rings. Company president Andrew Kalan said the candy, on the market six to nine months and in 1,000 stores around the country, promotes the legalization of marijuana. It does pretty well, he said. This is the first complaint Ive heard, Kalan said, and people are usually not shy. Im actually surprised this is the first. An irate parent brought the candy to Pridgens attention, hoping the city could apply pressure and get it out of stores. Pridgen and Councilmember Demone Smith displayed the candy, along with fake marijuana known as K2 thats also sold in some stores at Tuesdays Common Council meeting, where Pridgen said hed refuse to grant licenses to stores in his district that planned to sell the merchandise and would seek to embar-

Fort Jennings High School and its environmental science class held a community tree planting day Saturday. More than 85 trees were planted on campus and was paid for with a Putnam County Educational Service Center STEM Grant. Most of the trees were different species with very few doubles. The hope was to make the school grounds a sort of arboretum for the outdoor lab area dedicated last spring to longtime teacher MaryLou Altenburger. Community groups including the Lions Club, FJ Athletic boosters, Fort Jennings firefighters and the Boy Scouts helped. Above: Sam Ketcham, left, and Doug Sickels help plant a tree.

The products contain organic leaves coated with chemicals that provide a marijuana-like high when smoked.

Foreign insects, diseases got to Us

trACie Cone Associated Press FRESNO, Calif. Dozens of foreign insects and plant diseases slipped undetected into the United States in the years after 9/11, when authorities were so focused on preventing another attack that they overlooked a pest explosion that threatened the quality of the nations food supply. At the time, hundreds of agricultural scientists responsible for stopping invasive species at the border were reassigned to anti-terrorism duties in the newly formed Homeland Security Department a move that scientists say cost billions of dollars in crop damage and eradication efforts from California vineyards to Florida citrus groves. The consequences come home to consumers in the form of higher grocery prices, substandard produce and the risk of environmental damage from chemicals needed to combat the pests. An Associated Press analysis of inspection records found that border-protection officials were so engrossed in By sUsAn HAiGH Associated Press stopping terrorists that they all but ignored the countrys exposure to destructive new insects and infections a quietly growing menace that has been attacking fruits and vegetables and even prized forests ever since. Whether they know it or not, every person in the country is affected by this, whether by the quality or cost of their food, the pesticide residue on food or not being able to enjoy the outdoors because beetles are killing off the trees, said Mark Hoddle, an entomologist specializing in invasive species at the University of California, Riverside. Homeland Security officials acknowledge making mistakes and say they are now working to step up agricultural inspections at border checkpoints, airports and seaports. While not as dire as terrorism, the threat is considerable and hard to contain. Many invasive species are carried into the U.S. by people who are either unaware of the laws or are purposely trying to skirt quarantine regulations. The hardest to stop are fruits, vegetables and spices

Connecticut insists on placing a tax on Amazon

month, saying the company is not obligated to abide by the law because it does not have a physical presence in Connecticut. Amazon contends that by not having a physical presence, it does not have to collect and remit taxes to the state, a protection of the U.S. Constitution. Connecticut plans to press Amazon for the taxes the state believes it should have collected at least during the month or so when the new

carried by international travelers or shipped by mail. If tainted with insects or infections, they could carry contagions capable of devastating crops. Plants and cut flowers can harbor larvae, as can bags of bulk commodities such as rice. Beetles have been found hitchhiking on the bottom of tiles from Italy, and boring insects have burrowed into the wooden pallets commonly used in cargo shipments. Invasive species have been sneaking into North America since Europeans arrived on the continent, and many got established long before 9/11. But the abrupt shift in focus that followed the attacks caused a steep decline in agricultural inspections that allowed more pests to invade American farms and forests. Using the Freedom of Information Act, the AP obtained data on border inspections covering the period from 2001 to 2010. The analysis showed that the number of inspections, along with the number of foreign species that were stopped, fell dramatically in the years after the Homeland Security Department was formed. law was in effect and Amazon still had affiliations with websites in Connecticut through its Amazon Associates Program. Amazon severed those ties in June. The state could expect up to $9.4 million a year in additional revenue if remote sellers, including Amazon, complied with the new law, according to an estimate by the General Assemblys Office of Fiscal Analysis. That estimate was based on data from a comparable New York law. Connecticut officials believe Amazon is obligated in other ways, as well. All we have to do is get in the door. Once we get in the door, there are some more opportunities that come, DRS Commissioner Kevin Sullivan said. Connecticut plans to evaluate some other connections Amazon has with people in the state and start building a case that Sullivan predicted will ultimately be decided in court. He said he didnt know how much money the state could expect to collect from the month or so thats in question. Theyre not fighting against a burden on their ability to do business in the state of Connecticut, Sullivan said. Theyre fighting to protect an advantage against everybody else whos doing business in the state of Connecticut.

Ohio Republicans County agrees to provide bilingual divided or undecided

election ballots
LORAIN (AP) A northeast Ohio county with a growing Puerto Rican population has agreed to provide election ballots in Spanish and English. The U.S. Justice Department announced the agreement Friday with Lorain County, located west of Cleveland. Beginning with next months election, Lorain County will provide bilingual ballots on voting machines county-wide and bilingual poll workers on a targeted precinct basis. About one-fourth of Lorains population of 64,000 has Hispanic or Latino backgrounds. Earlier census findings said one-third of the voting-age Puerto Ricans in Lorain knew limited English. Last year the Justice Department reached a similar agreement with Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland. By DAN SEWELL Associated Press WEST CHESTER The Grand Ole Pub in this Cincinnati suburb is a good place to find Republicans. Its not so easy, though, to find one who feels settled on, or even enthused about the partys current field of presidential candidates. Patron Jim Goll sat near a portrait of conservative standard-bearer Ronald Reagan, and the walls are decorated with pictures of talk show hosts Sean Hannity and Bill OReilly and other political figures. It seemed that Goll and other patrons couldnt see any of the current field joining the Republican icons on the pub wall. Theyve all got some points that I like, Goll said. If I could take all the candidates and put them in a pot and mix them together, that would be awesome. Ohio has been a swing state for decades, and recent polls indicate Republicans could take it back in 2012 after Barack Obamas 2008 win Republican George W. Bush carried Ohio twice, as did Democrat Bill Clinton. But first Ohioans would have to rally around a common candidate. Mixed feelings and indecision seem common across a swath of Republican-dominated suburbs that provide votes for Republican nominees whom history says must win Ohio to win the general election. A recent statewide Quinnipiac University poll indicated support for Mitt Romney was at 24 percent, with dont know at 22 and Rick Perry at 21 and the rest scattered among the other candidates. The regions Republican voters were credited with delivering Ohio and clinching re-election in 2004 for Bush. John McCain also ran well in the region in 2008, but shy of Bushs 2-to-1 margins. Ohio plans to vote on March 6, the Super Tuesday when about a dozen or so states will hold primaries or caucuses. The challenge for Republican candidates is to generate enough enthusiasm out of the current malaise that they rally behind the Republican nominee. Otherwise, low turnout could turn the state toward Obama again. Lori Viars, a social conservative activist in Warren County, a series of suburbs between Cincinnati and Dayton, is among those Republicans who predict Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, cant get the regions base out in sufficient numbers. I think he (Romney) is the only who one would be objec-

Ad campaign ramps up against anti-union law

COLUMBUS (AP) An analysis shows that opponents of Ohios contentious new collective bargaining law appear to be outspending its supporters when it comes to television ads. The Ohio Newspaper Organization, a collective of Ohios eight largest newspapers, reported that the union-backed opposition group We Are Ohio appears to be outspending business and Republican-supported Building a Better Ohio by a 5-2 ratio. The collective cites files kept by 17 TV stations across the state. Through Oct. 13, the opposition group paid out $1.92 million for television ads in five of Ohios largest market Dayton, Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Youngstown. In that same time, the group backing the law spent $741,000. Another group, Make Ohio Great which is funded by the Republican Governors Association bought $441,000 of ad time in those same markets. Their ads feature Gov. John Kasich advocating for reasonable reforms, but do not specifically reference the fight over the collective bargaining law. Television stations are required by law to disclose advertising paid for by candidate campaigns, but not for ballot issues, such as the repeal effort. The newspaper collective reported that four stations opted not to disclose ad buys, while 17 did.

- Ohio GOP voter Dan Keith tionable to my crowd, and I worry that because conservatives are split among the other candidates, Romney could win (the nomination) and then we could end up losing to Obama, said Viars, an anti-abortion leader for whom Romneys since-changed abortion rights position alienates her. I definitely fear for our party. Viars is still undecided, which she said is unusual for her at this stage. When Perry got into the presidential race, Tracy Brewer was hoping that the Texas governor would sweep her off her political feet. More than a month later, shes still standing, and still undecided. Perry has stumbled in debates, and she opposes his failed attempt to require Texas girls to be vaccinated against a sexually transmitted disease that can cause cancer, or Texass policy giving in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. Brewer was dead set against Romney in 2008, but shes keeping an open mind for 2012 if he looks like the best candidate to defeat Obama. The GOP-dominated southwest Ohio region has a substantial tea party movement, and many adherents say they support Ron Paul, the libertarianminded Republican congressman. Mike Wilson, leader of the Cincinnati tea party, isnt among them. He disagrees with Paul on foreign policy. Everybody in has strengths and weaknesses, said Wilson, who thinks Paul has a loyal base that will keep him in the running late into the race, and that its too soon to crown

candidates as front-runners. I think the media are wrong if they take this as a two-person race. He recalled that before the primaries began four years ago, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee were considered top contenders. Wilson this year had liked former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who dropped out, and he is among the growing number of people taking a fresh look at pizza magnate Herman Cain, who won a Florida straw poll and drew praise for debate performances. At the Grand Ole Pub, co-owner Bill Langford likes Cains business acumen, which he thinks is needed to deal with the nations struggling economy, although hes not sure Cain can build enough support to win. Quite possibly, the person you like isnt electable, and you have to be pragmatic, Langford said. Langford and wife Pat opened the restaurant-bar in a strip shopping center a year ago, and he said the economy has taken a toll on small businesses like his. They were busy last Friday night, though, with a number of tea party and Republican partisans in the crowd. Three generations of the Keith family were at one table having burgers, sweet potato fries and other pub fare.

said. Unions have mobilized against parent-trigger laws. In July, the American Federation of Teachers posted a slide presentation on its website detailing how it successfully won a dilution of the Connecticut parent-trigger proposal so parents can recommend change but have no authority to enact it. After ensuing media coverage of Plan A: Kill Mode, the union took down the document and disavowed it. For Austin, union opposition to parent trigger underscores whats wrong unions reject reform efforts such as charter schools, tenure changes and new performance evaluation measures in order to protect jobs, but at the same time many schools are failing, especially in the inner-cities. The system is calcified, he said. Its designed to go against change. In somewhat of an ironic twist, Parent Revolution is organizing parents using old-school, labor organizing tactics, employing a former union organizer with United Farm Workers and Service Employees International Union to lead the effort. So far, more than 20 unions have been formed. Organizing parents is a lot tougher than workers, said Pat DeTemple, the organizing director. Simply finding parents is a ridiculous amount of work. Parents dont know each

other, he said. And, unlike with an employer, parents dont usually have common grievances with a school they all have different experiences depending on their child. Still, parents heartstrings are a powerful tug. Their kids are at stake, so at a deep level theres an incentive there to organize, DeTemple said. Organizers show parents how to conduct effective house meetings, distribute flyers in front of schools, canvass doorto-door, write letters, and create surveys and petitions. They also inform parents about their rights and students rights, and about how educational system works, how to judge a schools state test scores, for example. Woodcrests Perry said the training has opened parents eyes. Were not informed so we dont know what to ask for, Perry said. We dont know where we fit in. The Parents Union is now surveying parents of Woodcrest students, in the Los Angeles Unified School District, and will present the results to the principal for action. At a community center in a South Los Angeles park, Spanish-speaking parents from nearby Los Angeles Academy Middle School are starting to organize. Theyve gathered for a training session on a textbook union organizing strategy called stories of self, learning how to succinctly tell why they became motivated to stand up for a better education for their kids.

Obama disconnects his rhetoric from reality

By ERICA WERNER Associated Press WASHINGTON In President Barack Obamas sales pitch for his jobs bill, there are two versions of reality: The one in his speeches and the one actually unfolding in Washington. When Obama accuses Republicans of standing in the way of his nearly $450 billion plan, he ignores the fact that his own party has struggled to unite behind the proposal. When the president says Republicans havent explained what they oppose in the plan, he skips over the fact that Republicans who control the House actually have done that in detail. And when he calls on Congress to pass this bill now, he slides past the point that Democrats control the Senate and were never prepared to move immediately, given other priorities. Senators are expected to vote Tuesday on opening debate on the bill, a month after the president unveiled it with a call for its immediate passage. To be sure, Obama is not the only one engaging in rhetorical excesses. But he is the president, and as such, his constant remarks on the bill draw the most attention and scrutiny. The disconnect between what Obama says about his jobs bill and what stands as the political reality flow from his broader aim: to rally the public behind his cause and get Congress to act, or, if not, to pin blame on Republicans. He is waging a campaign, one in which nuance and context and competing responses dont always fit in if they dont help make the case. For example, when Obama says his jobs plan is made up of ideas that have historically had bipartisan support, he stops the point there. Not mentioned is that Republicans have never embraced the tax increases that he is proposing to cover the cost of his plan. Likewise, from city to city, Obama is demanding that Congress act (he means Republicans) while it has been clear for weeks that the GOP will not support all of his bill, to say the least. Individual elements of it may well pass, such as Obamas proposal to extend and expand a payroll tax cut. But Republicans strongly oppose the presidents proposed new spending and his plan to raise taxes on millionaires to pay for the package. The fight over the legislative proposal has become something much bigger: a critical test of the presidents powers of persuading the public heading into the 2012 presidential campaign, and of Republicans ability to deny him a win and reap victory for themselves. He knows its not going to pass. Hes betting that voters wont pick up on it, or even if they do they will blame Congress and he can run against the do-nothing


One Year Ago On Sept. 28, Trinity United Methodist Church concluded the purchase of approximately 15 acres on Ambrose Drive adjacent to U.S. 30 for the construction of a community center, new home for Tender Times Childhood Development Center and worship. The land was purchased from the Wannemacher family and the church will plan through the next few months for a 2011 construction. 25 Years Ago 1986 James E. Miller of Delphos, is one of the five finalists for the Ohio State Young Farmer of the Year award. Miller was selected the young farmer regional winner of Northwest Ohio by the Ohio Young Farmer Council. He will be vying for state honors with four other Ohio regional winners at the Young Farmers Convention in February, 1987 in Dayton. The junior health careers program of the Vantage Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA) held its annual re-organizational meeting. Officers elected were Michelle Addis, Antwerp, secretary; Darla Dotson, Continental, president; Jody Grogg, Van Wert, vice president; and Linda Kramer, Fort Jennings, treasurer.

Delphos Jefferson, which blanked Ada 32-0 Friday night for its sixth win without a loss, held the biggest margin of the three leaders. The Wildcats got 13 of 26 first place votes and 217 poll points. 50 Years Ago 1961 The Delphos Lions Club held its annual picnic in the Firemens club house at Waterworks Park Sunday afternoon. Approximately 60 persons including members of the organization and their families were in attendance. John Pitsenbarger and Mickey Vondran were in charge of the event, and Rod Tiernan was the program chairman. The annual District No. 8, Order of the Eastern Star party was held at the Masonic Temple here in Delphos Oct. 6, with approximately 150 in attendance. Entertainment was provided by fours chapters of the district; Grove chapter presenting an amusing style review; Payne chapter, Eastern Star and Masonic choirs; Spencerville, monologue and piano selections; and Delphos chapter, radio quiz program and organ selections. A number of local persons are in Kansas City, Mo., this week attending the National Convention of the Future Farmers of America.

The league is now composed of Wapakoneta, St. Marys, Van Wert and Ada. Ada is planning to withdraw its membership after the football season.

Clock ticking on supercommittee

WASHINGTON (AP) The supercommittee is struggling. After weeks of secret meetings, the 12-member deficitcutting panel established under last summers budget and debt deal appears no closer to a breakthrough than when talks began last month. While the panel members themselves arent doing much talking, other lawmakers, aides and lobbyists closely tracking the committee are increasingly skeptical, even pessimistic, that the panel will be able to meet its assigned goal of at least $1.2 trillion in deficit savings over the next 10 years. The reason? A familiar deadlock over taxes and cuts to major programs like Medicare and the Medicaid health care program for the poor and disabled. Democrats wont go for an agreement that doesnt include lots of new tax revenue; Republicans are just as ardently anti-tax. The impasse over revenues means that Democrats wont agree to cost curbs on popular entitlement programs like Medicare. Fairness has to be a prerequisite for it, said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. We have just come through passing a bill that was (all spending) cuts, no revenue. Pelosi was referring to the August debt limit bill, which set tight caps on agency budgets but didnt contain revenue increases pressed by Democrats. Democrats are more insistent on revenues now. Theres been no movement on revenues and Im not sure the Democrats will agree to anything without revenues, added a Democratic lobbyist who required anonymity to speak candidly. Asked last week whether she is confident that the panel can hit its $1.2 trillion goal, cochairman Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., sidestepped the question. I am confident that the public is watching us very closely to see if we can show this country that this democracy can work, Murray told reporters. I carry that weight on my shoulders every day and so does every member of this committee. The two parties have equal strength on the panel, which has until Thanksgiving to come up with a plan to submit for up-or-down House and Senate votes in December. That means bipartisan compromise is a prerequisite for a successful result. Thus far, say aides to panel members and other lawmakers, neither side has demonstrated the required flexibility in the super-secret talks. The $1.2 trillion target evolved after efforts by President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to strike a so-called grand bargain on taxes and spending fell apart in July. Those discussions and earlier talks led by Vice President Joe Biden identified numerous options for cutting the deficit. They included requiring federal workers to contribute more to their retirement, cutting farm subsidies, auctioning broadcast spectrum and curbing payments to Medicare providers like skilled nursing facilities, rural hospitals and home health care services.

Unemployed trapped by discrimination

By SAM HANANEL Associated Press WASHINGTON After two years on the unemployment rolls, Selena Forte thought shed found a temporary job at a delivery company that matched her qualifications. But Forte, a 55-yearold from Cleveland, says a recruiter for an employment agency told her she would not be considered for the job because she had been out of work too long. She had lost her job driving a bus. They didnt even want to hear about my experience, said Forte. It didnt make sense. Youre always told just go out there and get a job. Forte, scraping by now as a part time substitute school bus driver, is part of a growing number of unemployed or underemployed Americans who complain they are being screened out of job openings for the very reason theyre looking for work in the first place. Some companies and job agencies prefer applicants who already have jobs, or havent been jobless too long. She could get help from a provision in President Barack Obamas jobs bill, which would ban companies with 15 or more employees from refusing to consider or offer a job to someone who is unemployed. The measure also applies to employment agencies and would prohibit want ads that disqualify applicants just because they are unemployed. Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat who has sponsored a separate bill protecting the unemployed, said he understands that employers need the right to hire according to their needs and to factor in work experience. But they shouldnt have the right to discriminate from the start and preemptively deny qualified workers a fair chance at a job they need, Brown said. But Obamas bill faces a troubled path in Congress, as Republicans strongly oppose its plans for tax increases on the wealthy and other spending provisions. Should the bill fail, Democrats are sure to remind jobless voters that the GOP blocked an attempt to redress discrimination against them at a time when work is so hard to find. The effort to protect the unemployed has drawn praise

Congress, said Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, a senior fellow at the University of Southern Californias School of Policy, Planning and Development. John Sides, political science professor at George Washington University, said Obamas approach on the jobs bill is more about campaigning than governing. Hes mostly just going around talking about this and drawing contrasts with what the Republicans want and what he wants and not really trying to work these legislative levers he might be able to use to get this passed, Sides said. That just suggests to me that he is ready to use a failed jobs bill as a campaign message against the Republicans. The presidents opponents arent exactly laying it all out, either. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., tried to force a vote on the bill last week, innocently claiming that the president was entitled to one. McConnell knew full well that the result would be failure for the legislation and an embarrassment for Obama. House Speaker John Boehner, meanwhile, claimed that Obama has given up on the country and decided to campaign full-time instead of seeking common ground with the GOP. But Boehner neglected to mention that Obamas past attempts at compromise with Republicans often yielded scant results, as Obama himself pointed out.

from workers rights advocates, but business groups say it will just stir up needless litigation by frustrated job applicants. The provision would give those claiming discrimination a right to sue, and violators would face fines of up to $1,000 per day, plus attorney fees and costs. A survey earlier this year by the National Employment Law Project found more than 150 job postings on employment Web sites such as and requiring that applicants must be currently employed or using other exclusionary language based on current employment status. Its really alarming to us that employers continue to ignore the strong public condemnation of this practice, said Maurice Emsellem, the legal groups policy co-director. The issue has gained more prominence as the unemployment level remains stuck over 9 percent and a record 4.5 million people nearly onethird of the unemployed have been out of work for a year or more. And older workers, like Forte, often struggle to find new jobs.

Moderately confused

Social conservatives giving Romney a chance despite Baptist preacher pulling Mormon card
By PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press WASHINGTON This year, pocketbook issues seem to matter more than pulpit preaching among cultural conservatives and at least some are willing to embrace Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney, who many have long looked at skeptically for his reversals on some of their priorities and his Mormon faith. No ones perfect, says Larry Smith of Newport Beach, Calif., one of thousands of conservatives gathering in Washington this weekend to hear from the slate of GOP candidates at the annual Values Voters Summit. Smith cast the choice before him as a compromise, and says hes leaning toward the former Massachusetts governor. Even though Romney has strayed from conservative orthodoxy on some social issues in the past, he still posts a strong record as a businessman. He has the skills to help us on this particular issue, at this particular time, Smith said. By that, he means the economy, with its stubbornly high 9.1 percent unemployment rate and sluggish growth. If interviews with conference attendees are any indication, thats what is giving Romney his best shot at winning over some of the social and Christian conservatives who he failed to attract in his first campaign in 2008. He couldnt overcome skepticism of his Mormon faith and his record of reversing himself on issues like abortion rights and gay rights. Both subjects are starting to percolate in this campaign. In a speech to the conservatives Friday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry criticized Romney for his shifting position on abortion, without ever using his chief rivals name. For some candidates, pro-life is an election-year slogan to follow the prevailing political winds, Perry said in a speech that at times felt more like a sermon than a political pitch. Later, the pastor who earlier had endorsed and introduced Perry spoke to reporters and called Mormonism a cult. Rick Perrys a Christian. Hes an evangelical Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ, said Robert Jeffress, senior pastor at First Baptist Church in Dallas. Mitt Romneys a good moral person, but hes not a Christian. Mormonism is not Christianity. It has always been considered a cult by the mainstream of Christianity. Perry quickly distanced himself from the comment. Asked by reporters Friday night in Tiffin, Iowa, whether Mormonism is a cult, Perry replied, No. Romney was speaking Saturday to the gathering.

Jefferson outlasts Lima Senior

By MALLORY KEMPER The Delphos Herald LIMA The Jefferson Wildcats soccer team controlled the tempo over the Lima Senior Spartans on the Lima Stadium turf Saturday afternoon, scoring two goals compared to one for Lima Senior. Jefferson took 15 shots on-goal while the Spartans took two. Jefferson improved to 4-8-1 while Lima Senior fell to 0-15. The first goal came early for the Jefferson Wildcats with 34:01 left in the first half as senior captain Elizabeth Schosker dribbled her way through the Lima Senior defenders and took a shot from six yards at the top; Lima Senior goalkeeper Aubrie Nuckles was out of the goal and Schosker shot right past her for a 1-0 Jeffcats lead. Not even two minutes later, Jefferson took control of the ball and Schosker passed an almost perfect corner kick right at freshman Kylee Haehn, who hit the right back SCHOSKER corner of the net just past Nuckles for a 2-0 Jefferson lead. Haehn was wide open at the 17:47 mark of the opening half but she shot right at Nuckles, who was there for an easy save. At 10:06, Haehn was wide right on a 10-yarder and at 8:20, her 6-yard bullet was deflected and controlled by Nuckles. Finally, Lima Senior got the chance at the goal with five minutes to play in the first half when Jenna Miles passed up to Hannah Rinehart, who shot from eight yards out at the top of the goal but Jefferson senior goalkeeper Cassidy Bevington was right there with the save. As the second half started, Jefferson had more attempts at the goal with seven second-half shots on-goal. Schosker had the first look at the 31:52 mark but it was shot right at the keeper, Nuckles. Five minutes later, Haehn had a wide-open look at the goal but she was wide right on an 8-yarder out on the right side. At the 17:05 mark of the second half, Miles made her way through the Jefferson defenders and while Bevington was out of the goal box, she took a shot at the goal that hit the back right corner of the net for a Lima Senior goal. The Wildcats had four more chances at the goal before the match ended but Nuckles had some diving saves to give her team the chance to win but Jefferson held on for the victory, 2-1. Overall, we played flat in the first half but came out stronger in the second; we just need to learn how to finish shots on-goal and

quit shooting right at the goalie, Jefferson c o a c h Lindsey Drerup said. It was a good BEVINGTON win for us since we have come off a couple losses in a row. It was a morale boost for the end of the season with two more games left before tournament. Nuckles had nine saves for the match and Bevington had one save. They have come a long way since the beginning of the season, Lima Senior coach Bonnie Wicker said. We have eight leaving seniors and none of them are four-year players, so we are a young team. It is really nice to see them come together as a team. Jefferson travels to Cory-Rawson Monday (5 p.m.), while Lima Senior heads to Oregon Clay on Wednesday.

Bath slides past Ottoville in girls soccer

By MALLORY KEMPER The Delphos Herald mkemper2011@ OTTOVILLE The Bath WildKittens girls soccer team traveled to Ottoville Saturday afternoon and came away with a 3-1 victory over the Lady Green at Bob Kaple Memorial Stadium. The Kittens controlled the shots on-goal with 15 while Ottoville had five. The Lady Green fell to 9-5 while Bath improved to 8-3-2 on the season. I think our speed was slower than normal but we were still able to create some passing and create offensive attacks at the goal, Bath coach Morgan Lashaway said. Defensively, we were really strong just having one letdown but overall, I am happy to come away with a strong win against a solid team. It took less than four minutes for the visiting team to crack the scoreboard.

Ottoville senior Kendra Krouskop used her dribbling skills as she split two defenders and took a shot on-goal but Brandon was right there to scoop the ball up. Kramer had nine saves for the Lady Green; Brandon had two saves for the visitors. I felt like our team could have done better today but I give a lot of credit to Bath, Ottoville coach Tim Kimmet said. Our last four games have been against top teams in the area and they get one in the goal and we are trying to fight for an uphill battle. We are going to have to find whatever formula it is that helped us win in the beginning of the season before tournament time comes. Ottoville travels to St. Johns Tuesday (5 p.m.); Bath takes on Celina (7 p.m.).

Bryan scored the first goal at the 17:51 mark in the first half. The Lancers defense was definitely getting a workout. Junior keeper Mark Evans ended the half with 11 saves versus Bryans 22 shots on-goal. The Lancers took the field for the

second half and fatigue seemed to be a factor as Bryan continued to wear down the defense with three goals scored at the 36:40, 30:01 and 29:10 marks. The last 30 minutes of the match the Lancers (5-4) tightened their playing and held off any more goals. The Lancers played Grant County on Oct. 1 and walked away with another victory, 2-0. The first half of the match the Lancers controlled the majority of the ball-handling, with a mid-half score coming from a header from senior Mike Klausing off an assist from sophomore Conner McCleery. The Lancers had 16 shots on-goal the first half. With the second half starting pretty much the same way, Lancer junior Nick Leeth scored at the 25:08 mark with an assist from junior Kade Carey. The Lancers next varsity match will be Thursday (5 p.m.) hosting Spencervile and they will be observing Senior Night. ----Thunderbirds whump Bearcats

On a lovely fall day, the teams were playing in a Kick For the Cure match to bring awareness and raise donations for breast cancer research. The Lady Golden Bears escaped with a 3-2 victory. The teams played a fairly even, back and forth first half until the Lady Bears scored a goal on a tough angle shot with just three minutes to go in the first half. The halftime score was 1-0 in favor of Bryan. Bryan began the second half quickly by scoring two goals in the first five minutes to take a 3-0 lead.


ELIDA Napoleons speed and veteran midfield gave Elidas boys soccer unit fits on a brilliant fall Saturday afternoon at the Elida Athletic Complex. So much so that the Wildcats handed the Bulldogs a 4-0 shutout. They are senior-laden in the midfield and that is where this match was won. They controlled the midfield and made it easy for their forwards to do their jobs, Elida coach Tom Thomas said. At the same time, we couldnt much going offensively because of their experience in the midfield. In particular, Wildcat forwards Jordan Lauf and Brandon Homan, along with Tommy Brown, made things tough for the Bulldog (3-7-1) back line and junior keeper Drew Laing (7 saves versus 13 shots on-goal). As well, the veteran Wildcat (7-7-1) midfield controlled the ball, making the Bulldogs charges at the net and sophomore netminder Robbie Dietrich (3 saves vs. 3 shots on-goal) few and far between. Elida held up for the first 13:27 before the visitors got their first shot on-goal and it was successful. Homan, on the left side, crossed to Lauf in the middle; the pass found the right foot of the junior forward and he slashed it past Laing from eight yards for a 1-0 edge. The Bulldogs then seemed to get some momentum after falling behind. At 13:12, senior Adam Troyer got a good look from eight yards but Dietrich gathered in the attempt. At 12:50, junior Spencer Sciranka got open on the left wing but his shot went just over the crossbar. Laing prevented a 2-0 halftime deficit when he nabbed a shot from Rhett Arps at 10:03. At 1:04, Elida senior Trey Bowman blasted one from the left wing but his 12-yarder was deflected by Dietrich as the blast knocked him down. With just 23 ticks left, Elida sophomore Vince Coolodge

tried a header off a corner kick but it just missed high. Napoleon dominated the second half, limiting the hosts to one shot on-goal at 4:20, a stop by Dietrich. Elida also played the final 34:51 without Bowman, who was yellow-carded twice and ejected. The Wildcats speedsters up front and from midfield made things miserable for the Elida defenders and midfield. They made it 2-0 just 21 seconds into the half as Homan got loose on the left wing and his 14-yarder went low and hard to the right side of the cords. Laing denied an in-close header from Lauf at 33:35. Laing made two great deflections at 32:30 and 32:20 when he twice denied Tyler Nation on laser-like tries. However, the onslaught was too much and the guests made it 3-0 at 12:02. Just outside the right box, Homan lofted a pass to the far post, finding Lauf for a 6-yard header that found its mark. Napoleon added the final tally at 2:28. Brown settled down a long pass on the left side near the end line, made a nice move around a defender and launched a 6-yarder high over the keeper for the 4-0 score. We are a young team and we played one of the toughest schedules in the area. There are no easy ones, Thomas added. Weve had our ups and downs while were learning this game against some stiff competition. These guys keep working hard and improving; that is all you can ask. Napoleon coach Chris DelFavero can sympathize. We played really well today. We play a pretty tough schedule, too, and we have to compete hard every match to have a chance, he added. Weve got a lot of speed up front: when we play into space, we can be tough to deal with. When we hold the ball, were not as good. We didnt hold it today; we moved the ball very well and that is the key for us. Elida is at Lima Central Catholic today (7 p.m.). Napoleon entertains Perrysburg 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Knights lance Lady Jays in net action

By Brian Bassett Times Bulletin Sports Editor CONVOY - With the postseason right around the corner, the St. Johns and Crestview volleyball teams met at Crestview High School Saturday for a late-season non-conference match. The Lady Knights, who were 16-3 on the season heading into the match, continued to roll - beating St. Johns in three sets (25-13, 25-9, 25-16). Crestview seized the momentum early in the first set, when a 3-3 tie quickly became a 10-3 Lady Knight lead on a Danica Hicks ace, prompting a timeout by Lady Blue Jay coach Kellie Sterling. A Crestview error following the break gave St. Johns a point but the Lady Knights answered with two to lead 12-4. St. Johns tried to battle back when a Shelby Reindel kill made the deficit six, 13-7, Crestview.

From there, the Lady Cougars began to mount a comeback. With just over 21 minutes remaining, Van Wert sophomore midfielder Hannah Hulbert connected on a free kick from just outside of the Bryan penalty area. Hulbert struck again with 51 seconds remaining in the match on a blast from the corner of the Bryan penalty area. Van Wert kept the pressure on and had a corner kick with 10 seconds remaining. After a scramble in front of the Bryan net, the defense cleared the ball away and the final horn sounded. Van Wert Coach Rich Nouza said he was proud of the way his team battled back after falling behind and never quit until the final whistle. I have seen some positive things and definite improvement the last few games, Nouza remarked. The Lady Cougars play their final home match of the season 5 p.m. today against Liberty Benton.

The Beavers hit a 37-yard field goal attempt in overtime to take their second win a row, 30-27, and their first in OT. The win bumps the Beavers up to 2-4 overall with a 2-2 record in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference. The loss dropped the Spartans below the .500 mark as they fell to 2-3 overall with a 1-2 mark in the HCAC. The Beavers started the game slowly as they went 3-and-out the first two drives. The Manchester offense managed to split the uprights on their first touch, taking an early 3-0 lead. The Beavers put together a nice drive on their third possession as a Tyler Wright (Troy) 49-yard touchdown run gave the Beavers a 7-3 lead with just under four minutes left in the first. The Bluffton defense forced a 3-andout from the Spartans following the touchdown. The Beavers started to drive down the field as the first quarter expired with Bluffton holding a 7-3 lead. Bluffton continued to move the chains as Wright connected with Ryan Sabin (Canal Winchester) for a 38-yard touchdown pass with 10:24 left in the half. The Beavers failed on the PAT, making the score 13-3. The Spartans responded by marching down the field for a touchdown at the 6-minute mark in the half. Wright found the end zone once again, this time connecting with Shane Swisher (Findlay/McComb) to make it a 10-point lead with just two minutes left in the period. The Spartans wasted no time responding as a 65-yard touchdown run by Corey Nelson took just 15 seconds off the clock. A Spartan interception on the Manchester 44-yard line with only one minute left in the half set up a Kyle Evans 27-yard field goal which made the score 20-20 at the break. Manchester took its second lead of the afternoon, 27-20, when Justin Minnich hit Skodinski for a 9-yard touchdown completion with 3:02 to play in the third. Bluffton was not fazed as a 44-yard Jason Johnson (Lansing, Mich./Lansing Eastern) reception from Chris Byrd (Detroit, Mich./Detroit University Prep) put the Beavers on the Manchester 8 as the third quarter expired. Byrd connected twice with Shawn Frost (Edison/Mt. Gilead) to start the fourth, capping the drive with a 2-yard touchdown which knotted the game with 14 minutes remaining. The teams each had their chances in the fourth quarter but were forced to punt as the score remained 27-27 at the end of regulation. Manchester started with the ball in the overtime.

The offenses proved even in the game as the Spartans had the slight advantage (367-354) in total yards. Manchester had the advantage on the ground, rushing for 252 yards, while the Beavers picked up 160. Bluffton led the air raid, connecting for 194 yards, while the Spartans had just 115 in the air.

The Beavers made a run at the 78-minute mark and Nate Byrum (London) connected with Andrew Shroll (Van Buren) for a 1-0 lead with less than 12 minutes to play. The Bluffton defense continued to hold its ground in the last minutes as the home team picked up its first W of the season over a talented Anderson squad that already has victories over Earlham, Defiance and Franklin to its credit. The Ravens outshot the Beavers, taking 21 attempts, seven on goal. Bluffton managed just six shots but the most important one of the match a score by Shroll at the 78:09 mark.

The Beavers return to the field today when they host Rochester College at the Sears Complex. The match is slated to begin at 4 p.m. ---Touchdown returns by Sierra and Pickett spark DC victory CINCINNATI Defiance College notched its third victory over Mount St. Joseph in the past four meetings with a 23-13 triumph over the Lions on Saturday. The Jackets used a pair of takebacks to secure the victory, with the first and final strikes of the afternoon coming on touchdown returns. Tony Sierra got things started for Defiance with an 84-yard punt return for a touchdown in the first quarter. The return lifted the Jackets to a 7-0 edge with 6:19 remaining in the first period and set a new DC record, by besting the previous mark of 81 yards set by Dustin Winkler against MSJ in 2001. After the Mount cut the lead to one point on the ensuing possession, Defiance bumped the spread to 10-6 on a 23-yard field goal off the foot of Spencer Saunders with 14:10 left to play in the second quarter. The score would remain there until the fourth period, when the Lions claimed the lead with a six-play, 83-yard scoring march that gave the hosts their first lead of the afternoon at 13-10 with 14:27 showing on the clock. Rick Powell brought the Jackets back on the very next touch however, spurring a 72-yard drive by following a sevenyard completion to Jon Carrabino with a 16-yard scamper to the MSJ 44-yard line. Powell then handed the ball to Terrance Plummer for a trio of rushes spanning 24 yards, before calling his own number on a 22-yard sprint to paydirt for the 16-13 DC advantage. Another key return would open up a 10-point spread just over one minute later, as Gregg Pickett intercepted a pass and ran it back 32 yards for another Yellow Jacket score. The touchdown and ensuing point-after from Saunders gave Defiance a 23-13 lead that it would not relinquish over the final 9:07 of action. The play of DCs defense and special teams proved pivotal in the victory, as the Jackets averaged nearly 30 yards per kickoff return and just under 50 per punt return, highlighted by Sierras record-setting 84-yard strike to open the scoring. Matt Oliver also excelled by averaging 41 yards per punt in six tries, including a 60-yard boot and three kicks inside the MSJ 20-yard line. The Yellow Jacket defense allowed a season-high 278 yards on the ground but countered by limiting MSJ to only 93 yards through the air on 11-of-27 passing. The Purple and Gold also hauled in three interceptions to keep the Lions at bay. Pickett provided the gem with the 32-yard interception return for a score, while Chrys Killebrew also hauled in a MSJ pass and Kyle Keegan ended the Mounts final possession of the game with a pick. Hunter Robertson led the defense with 10 tackles, while Josh Slayton posted seven stops and D.J. Brigham picked up a sack. Powell paced the offense in his return to the starting lineup at the quarterback spot by completing 13-of-26 passes for 87 yards and racking up 96 yards on the ground over 11 carries. Powell averaged 8.7 yards per rush, to go with one touchdown. Defiance (1-4, 1-2 HCAC) will look to even its mark in HCAC action on Saturday when it returns home to welcome Earlham (0-6, 0-4 HCAC) at 1:30 p.m.

NatioNal league ChampioNship series

By CHRIS JENKINS The Associated Press MILWAUKEE Even before the first pitch, the Milwaukee Brewers took a swing at the St. Louis Cardinals. Come Sunday, the Brewers swapped their barbs for bats and just kept bashing. Needing a comeback in the NL championship series opener, Milwaukee turned to its power duo of Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder, then got a clutch hit from Yuniesky Betancourt to beat the Cardinals 9-6. The Brewers celebrated wildly as the big hits came during a rapid-fire rally. Its the playoffs, bro, Fielder said. Youve got to let it all out. Braun launched a 2-run, 463foot homer in the first inning and added a 2-run double during a 6-run burst in the fifth. Fielder hit a 2-run homer and the typically light-hitting Betancourt added a 2-run homer to cap it. The mid-game turnaround came so fast that the crowd wasnt done cheering Brauns big hit when Fielder went deep. I dont even know if I heard the ball come off Princes bat, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. I knew it was a good swing and came off nice but when you cant hear the ball, the sound of it, because of all the people yelling. I wasnt sure what was going to happen there until I saw the ball flight. At least for one game, the bitter NL Central rivals avoided any on-field confrontations in their first postseason matchup since the 1982 World Series. Thats despite an already tense atmosphere that gained some steam when Brewers starter Zack Greinke let it slip on Saturday that some of his teammates dont like the Cardinals Chris Carpenter a comment that drew a stern rebuke from Cardinals manager Tony La Russa. Greinke hinted that he heard a few comments from the Cardinals dugout Sunday but he said it was nothing out of the ordinary. Theyre yelling from the dugout some but most teams do that, Greinke added. Everyone always makes fun of me grunting when I throw a fastball. Its kind of funny sometimes but no big deal. The atmosphere was tense even before the first pitch, as La Russa was showered with boos during pregame introductions. He calmly tipped his cap to the crowd. La Russa said afterward that he hoped the tension wouldnt overshadow the competition although he added he had a sense that some fans and media members would be disappointed if there arent any repeats of the on-field confrontations the teams have had in the recent past. I dont want our players and their players to be egged on and I dont think they will, La Russa said. Were going to play as hard and good against each other as we can. Greinke struggled at times but reliever Takashi Saito got Cardinals star Albert Pujols to ground into a key double play in the seventh. Francisco Rodriguez pitched a hitless eighth and closer John Axford threw a hitless ninth for a save. Game 2 is at Miller Park tonight. Shaun Marcum starts for the Brewers against Edwin Jackson. Well come back out, Cardinals star Lance Berkman said. The same thing happened to us in the first game against Philly. We were able to regroup. David Freese hit a 3-run homer off Greinke in the fourth and the Cardinals led 5-2 in the fifth. But Milwaukee made it tough on Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia, who left after giving up Fielders homer. Garcia, who hit Fielder with a pitch earlier in the game, gave up six runs and six hits in 4-plus innings with three walks. He took the loss. Greinke earned the win despite his uneven outing, giving up six runs and eight hits in 6-plus innings. He left the game to a standing ovation after giving up a leadoff single to Rafael Furcal in the seventh. The Cardinals took a 3-run lead into the fifth before Garcia allowed a leadoff single to Corey Hart and a double to Jerry Hairston Jr. Braun hit a 2-run ground-rule double to right and with the crowd still saluting him, Fielder hit the first pitch from Garcia deep to right for a tworun homer, giving the Brewers the lead. Fielder then showed off his repertoire of celebrations, giving the teams Beast Mode gesture upon his arrival at home plate and exchanging mock knockout blows with Braun as he trotted back to the dugout. That was it for Garcia, who left with no outs in the fifth and his team down 6-5. It that wasnt the end of trouble for the Cardinals, though. Reliever Octavio Dotel fielded Rickie Weeks grounder and threw the ball away, allowing Weeks to go to second on the error. Betancourt who batted .252 in the regular season with 13 homers then sent a 2-1 pitch from Dotel deep to left, where it flew into the Brewers bullpen and was fielded on the fly by Milwaukee bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel. Hanel pumped his fist, Betancourt circled the bases and the crowd continued its inning-long eruption. Betancourt has taken plenty of criticism this season but might be among the rare group of athletes who say they dont pay attention to the critics and actually mean it. Through an interpreter, Betancourt added he manages to avoid criticism because he doesnt speak much English. With the score 8-5, Pujols came to the plate with runners on first and third and no outs in the seventh. Pujols broke his bat on a double-play grounder a run scored but the Brewers had limited the damage. Betancourt doubled in the seventh and scored on a single by Jonathan Lucroy. The Brewers and Cardinals split an 18-game series evenly this season, a sign of what has been one of baseballs most intense rivalries in recent years. The Cardinals success against the Brewers in the final month of the season was one of the main reasons they climbed back into playoff contention.

The Associated Press The Oakland Raiders just won, baby. A day after owner Al Davis died, the Raiders pulled off a fake punt he wouldve loved and found a way to gut out a 25-20 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday. Michael Huff intercepted Matt Schaubs pass in the end zone on the final play to secure the win. Coach Hue Jackson dropped to his knees on the sideline, covered his face with his hands and cried as his team celebrated the bittersweet victory. Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field goals, three from at least 50 yards. He was one of those unorthodox moves Oakland was known for under Davis, becoming only the third kicker drafted in the first round when the Raiders took him in 2000. Stadiums around the league observed a moment of silence before the early games to honor Davis, who died at his Oakland home on Saturday at age 82. The Raiders (3-2) wore black decals on the backs of their helmets with AL written in silver letters. Schaub threw for 416 yards and two touchdowns but missed star receiver Andre Johnson, who sat out with a right hamstring injury. The Texans (3-2) still had a chance to win with under a minute left, facing a third-and-23 from the Oakland 39. Schaub scrambled and found tight end Joel Dreessen open at the 5 and Schaub spiked the ball with seven seconds left. Instead of trying to run for the winning score, Schaub lobbed a pass to Jacoby Jones and Huff stepped in to pick it off. Patriots 30, Jets 21

At Foxborough, Mass., BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for a career-high 136 yards and two touchdowns for New England. Tom Brady had another strong game, completing 24-of-33 passes for 321 yards and one touchdown as the Patriots scored at least 30 points for the 13th straight regular-season game. Meanwhile, New Yorks Mark Sanchez had another tough one, passing for just 166 yards against the team that entered with the NFLs lowest-ranked defense--. Bills 31, Eagles 24 At Orchard Park, N.Y., Fred Jackson had 196 yards from scrimmage and linebacker Nick Barnett had two of Buffalos four interceptions. After scoring on a 31-yard interception return in the second quarter, Barnett sealed it by grabbing Michael Vicks tipped pass intended for Jason Avant with 1:49 left at the Bills 26. Jackson scored on a 5-yard run and finished with 111 yards rushing in helping the Bills (4-1) match their best start since 2008. The Eagles (1-4) have lost four straight and are off to their worst start since 1999, coach Andy Reids first season. Vick went 26-of-40 for 315 yards and two touchdowns but was undone by a career-worst four interceptions. He added 90 yards rushing to pass Randall Cunningham for most career yards by an NFL quarterback. Packers 25, Falcons 14 At Atlanta, Aaron Rodgers threw for 396 yards and a pair of touchdowns, leading unbeaten Green Bay back from a sluggish start. The high-scoring Packers (5-0) trailed 14-0 early in the second quarter and were held without a touchdown in the first half

by Atlanta (2-3), which was trying to make up for an embarrassing 48-21 loss to Green Bay in the playoffs last season. But after settling for three field goals by Mason Crosby, Rodgers finally got rolling. He connected with James Jones on a 70-yard touchdown that gave Green Bay its first lead late in the third. Then, on the first play of the fourth quarter, Rodgers connected with Greg Jennings on a 29-yard scoring play that stretched the lead to 22-14. Saints 30, Panthers 27 At Charlotte, N.C., Drew Brees found Pierre Thomas wide open on the right side for a 6-yard touchdown with 50 seconds left to lift New Orleans (4-1). Brees threw for 359 yards and two touchdowns, including a nearly flawless final drive in which he completed 8-of-9 passes for 80 yards to take back momentum after Cam Newton and the Panthers (1-4) had taken their first lead early in the fourth quarter. The Saints defense finally sealed the win, letting the Panthers reach only midfield before Newtons desperation heave downfield fell incomplete for the games final play. Newton threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead 5-yard scoring pass to Greg Olsen for a 27-23 lead with 12:32 to play. He also scored on a sneak late in the third. Chargers 29, Broncos 24 At Denver, Philip Rivers overcame an interception and a fourth-quarter fumble to lead San Diego despite Tim Tebows best efforts to rally Denver (1-4) from a 16-point deficit. Tebow threw for one touchdown and ran for another after replacing Kyle Orton to start the third quarter and had one final

NFl Capsules

shot for the win before his pass fell incomplete in the end zone on the final play. Nick Novak kicked five field goals and Ryan Mathews ran for a career-best 125 yards for San Diego, which takes a 4-1 record into its bye week. Orton was 6-of-13 for 34 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. 49ers 48, Buccaneers 3 At San Francisco, Alex Smith threw two of his three touchdown passes to Vernon Davis and Frank Gore ran for a score in his second straight 100-yard rushing game for San Francisco (4-1). Carlos Rogers returned an interception 31 yards for a touchdown and tight ends Davis and Delanie Walker each caught TD passes of 20-plus yards in the Niners third straight win since blowing a late lead in a Sept. 18 overtime loss to the Cowboys. Josh Freeman never found the flow that made him so effective in the rout here last November and the Bucs (3-2) were a step behind in a short week after beating the Colts on Monday night. Seahawks 36, Giants 25 At East Rutherford, N.J., backup Charlie Whitehurst threw a go-ahead 27-yard touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin and Brandon Browner returned an interception 94 yards to clinch it for Seattle. Whitehurst, who replaced the injured Tarvaris Jackson in the third, led the Seahawks (2-3) on an 80-yard TD drive, capped by his pass to a wide-open Baldwin with 2:37 left on a play that the Giants (3-2) seemed to stop after defensive end Osi Umenyiora jumped offside. The Giants, who had staged fourthquarter rallies to win their last two games, mounted another late drive and had firstand-goal at the Seahawks 5 after con-

secutive completions of 41 and 19 yards to Victor Cruz. A procedure penalty on first down pushed the ball back to the 10, then Eli Mannings pass tipped off Cruzs hands, bounced off Kam Chancelor and was picked off at the 6 by Browner. Chiefs 28, Colts 24 At Indianapolis, Matt Cassel threw for 257 yards and four touchdowns and Kansas City scored the final 21 points against winless Indianapolis. Dwayne Bowe and Steve Breaston each caught two TD passes to give the Chiefs (2-3) their first win at Indianapolis. The 17-point comeback matched the biggest in team history. With the injured Peyton Manning watching from the sideline, Curtis Painter had a brilliant first half. He was 12-of-17 for 237 yards with two TDs and a quarterback rating of 152.2 as the Colts (0-5) built a 24-7 lead. But Cassel found Breaston for a 16-yard TD pass just before halftime and Bowe on a 5-yard score with 40 seconds left in the third quarter to get the Chiefs within 24-21. Then, with 5:15 left in the game, Breaston caught the 11-yard goahead score. Steelers 38, Titans 17 At Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisberger tied a team record with five touchdown passes including two to Hines Ward. Other than a slight limp when he ran, Roethlisberger appeared to have no issues with his sprained left foot, also hitting Mike Wallace, Heath Miller and David Johnson for scores as the Steelers (3-2) ended Tennessees 3-game winning streak. The five TD passes tied a singlegame team record Roethlisberger already shares with Mark Malone and Terry

Bradshaw. Tennessees Chris Johnson ran for a score but finished with 51 rushing yards on 14 carries. The Titans are 3-2. Vikings 34, Cardinals 10 At Minneapolis, Adrian Peterson powered in for three first-quarter TDs to build a lead large enough even Minnesota (1-4) couldnt lose it. Peterson rushed 29 times for 122 yards and Donovan McNabb jogged in for a score, too, as the Vikings (1-4) made it 28-0 less than 12 1/2 minutes into the game. Kevin Kolb had three turnovers for the Cardinals (1-4) and finished 21-for-42 for 232 yards and one touchdown pass, a performance so shaky the Vikings were able to confidently run down the clock after stumbling through the second and third quarters. Bengals 30, Jaguars 20 At Jacksonville, Fla., Andy Dalton threw two touchdown passes and Bernard Scott scored with 1:56 remaining for Cincinnati (3-2). The Bengals took advantage of Matt Turks 22-yard punt into the wind to set up the winning score, a touchdown needed because Mike Nugent missed an extra point in the first half. Dalton hooked up with Jermaine Gresham on a fourth-and-6 play to keep the short drive alive, then found Andre Caldwell for an 8-yard gain. With the Jaguars (1-4) expecting a pass on third down, Dalton handed to Scott, who weaved his way into the end zone to make it 23-20. Jacksonville had a chance to tie but Blaine Gabbert fumbled a bad snap and the Bengals ended up with the ball. Cincinnati also scored on a fumble return on the final play.

Keep supplies handy

Save time and effort by keeping things close at hand. For example, rather than storing your cleaning products all lined up on a shelf, you can create a cleaning-kit caddy or two. This makes it easy to carry supplies room to room or store the caddy in the room in which you use it. Gathering baking supplies can be time-consuming, too. Another solution is to store your baking supplies together. One reader, Janice G., from Washington, shares: Buy three large, clear plastic tubs (40 quarts). Label them Cookies, Cake and Pie. Then put into each tub all the supplies and utensils relating to that category. Baking is a snap now when the grandkids come and bring out one plastic tub. I use a closet near the kitchen to store the tubs. It clears out the kitchen and makes it so easy to find things. The next reader tip shares another idea: Central closet: I dont mind washing, drying or folding laundry, but I hate putting it away. What if all the clothes for a household were stored in one central closet, in or attached to the laundry room? I think Id love it. I could put a threeway mirror in there and a screen to change behind. You wouldnt need closets or dressers in bedrooms, resulting in fewer surfaces to dust and less furniture to clean around. If we add on to this house Im considering leaving a small bedroom to use this way. -- Constance, New Jersey Shop around: Today I was at a big-name hardware store and bought two solar lights. Later, I went to a dollar store and found small solar lights for a dollar. I bought 10 for what I paid for two at the hardware store. Its nice to have the walkway lighted. -- Marla, West Virginia Office lunch tips: Im a really big fan of making huge containers full of prepped lettuce, rinsed, chopped and ready to go. I do five on Sunday and then every morning I just have to make another small container for whatever topping I feel like for the day (tuna, chicken, nuts, feta, etc.). It works so well and is delicious! -Annie, forums I like making a basic pasta salad, then adding things to make it different each day. This is a good recipe: recipe/pasta-salad-forlunch-this-week-361789. I also keep some instant soups and other healthy snacks or lunch items in the office for those days when I am too busy at home. One of my favorites is instant miso soup that I get from the Asian market in various flavors and for reasonable cost. A cup of that satisfies me quite well -- at the very least it reduces what I might need to buy if I really am stuck. I try to plan dinner so that there is something left for lunch the next day. If I pack it as I am cleaning up after dinner, I am much more likely to take it with me to work the next day. -- Saule, Illinois I like packing items that I can pick at all day in case I dont get to sit down to lunch: grapes, croutons, veggies, a variety of canned fruits, crackers or tortillas cut into triangle pieces. I make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches a week ahead. I have been doing this with great success. I wrap each one in foil, throw it in the freezer and its fresh as the day I made it by the time lunch rolls around. No sogginess at all! Very easy to grab and go. I use a hearty whole wheat bread which

fills me up more than the white fluffy breads. -- Peggy, Colorado Dear Sara: One of the local stores is running a special this week on cereal. The deal is really good, but my boyfriend said it would do no good to buy it because you cant freeze it and we wont eat it fast enough. Can I freeze cereal without it being mushy when it thaws? -- B.R., Maine


Frugal Living
Dear B.R.: Cereal has a long shelf life. Check the date on the box. It typically has a best-used-by date thats about nine to 12 months from the purchase date. You have plenty of time to store it and eat it. You can freeze cereal, but the amount of space it takes up might be a problem. You need to know how much cereal you normally consume and whether or not you have space to store it. Then you can decide how many boxes are worth buying. Keep in mind that cereal goes on sale often and there are coupons for it regularly, too.

Tomorrows Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, OCT. 11, 2011 Strive to be better equipped in your chosen field of endeavor than your competitors in the coming months. Your key to success will be dependent upon how well you plan and how prepared you are. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -There is a good chance that neither you nor your mate will be using your best judgment today. Put off making any major decisions until you have plenty of time to thoroughly suss things out. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Use both self-discipline and common sense when it comes to anything that has to do with health matters. You know what you shouldnt be eating, drinking or doing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Dont allow yourself to be caught in the middle of a situation where a friend is trying to use you as a pawn in his or her political maneuvers. Speak up and put a stop to it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Be on guard when on the job, because there is a good chance someone will attempt to take credit for your accomplishments and the good work youre doing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Dont be caught off guard by someone playing a game of oneupmanship. If this individual catches you napping, he or she will make sure you come out second-best. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Be exceptionally diligent about your financial affairs, especially if youre involved in a joint endeavor with another party. If she or he misfires, it could cost you plenty of the green stuff. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -If it seems like everybody you know disagrees with your point of view or way of doing something, its time to review your thinking. You could be afflicted with tunnel vision. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Be cooperative and do your part, but dont be a doormat for anybody who tries to palm off his or her chores onto you. Let that person fend for himself or herself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You shouldnt need to wager in order to make a competitive sport or activity more exciting. In fact, it can work against you if you place more attention on it than on the enjoyment of the events at hand. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Life is tough enough without adding self-imposed penalties on what youre attempting to do. Instead of taking the line of least resistance, you might do everything the hard way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you and the party whom youre addressing are each interested only in your own thinking, youll never hear a word of what the other is saying. Youll miss an important exchange of information. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Dont act impulsively on a business proposal that is being offered you without first examining it thoroughly. It could be better for the other guy than it is for you. WEDNESDAY, OCT. 12, 2011 Conditions arent likely to be too dull for you in the next year, when it comes to your career. All kinds of exciting and unexpected happenings could be in the offing, and how you respond to events could either make or break you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Dont place too much hope on verbal commitments from others regarding their willingness to help. When you need them the most, they could be dedicating their support elsewhere. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Control your powers of concentration by keeping your mind only on the task at hand. If you happen to make a mistake, you should be able to catch it immediately and fix it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Something youve neglected for far too long might hamper your freedom of mobility. What youve been sweeping under the rug could suddenly create a veritable storm of dust bunnies. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Indecisiveness is an attitude that can easily be corrected. However, if you continue to persist being wishywashy, your friends might not want to deal with you anymore. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Guard against continually attempting to do things that are way beyond your mental or physical capabilities. Face up to your shortcomings and seek help when needed. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Be budget-minded, because if you arent, funds youve earmarked for necessities shant be there for you down the line, when you need them to pay the bills. Think ahead. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Be extremely selective concerning with whom you spend your leisure time so that the wrong types dont ruin your fun. You need to laugh a bit to refurbish your soul. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Certain people tend to be somewhat caustic and/or critical, but you dont have to respond in kind. Set a good example by being extremely tolerant when dealing with everybody. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you want special items that you own to enjoy long lives, pay attention to your care in handling them. Breakage is a product of carelessness. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When negotiating something of significance, make certain all parties involved understand the small points as well as the main issues in the agreement, so no one later can claim ignorance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Methodically plot your course of action before you jump into the fray, or you could end up being the victim of your own handiwork. Look ahead and program each and every step you take. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you let your friends look upon you as their rock of Gibraltar today, theyre likely to bring more trouble into your life than you care to handle.

Special ops, CIA first in, last out of Afghanistan

By KIMBERLY DOZIER AP Intelligence Writer FORT BRAGG, N.C. Special operations forces and the CIA are girding for the moment when Afghanistans security rests once again with them, working together with Afghan forces against the Taliban. Thats how they started out, the first U.S. forces in just after the Sept. 11 attacks, and top military officials see the war evolving that way once again, as most American troops withdraw in 2014. The next stage could keep the CIA and special operators at war for up to another decade. The wars 10th anniversary Friday recalled the beginnings of a conflict that drove the Taliban from power and lasted far longer than was imagined. We put the CIA guys in first, scant weeks after the towers in New York fell, said Lt. Gen. John Mulholland, then a colonel with U.S. special operations forces, in charge of the military side of the operation. U.S. Special Forces Green Berets, together with CIA officers, helped coordinate antiTaliban forces on the ground with U.S. firepower from the air, to topple the Taliban and close in on al-Qaida. Recent remarks from the White House suggest the CIA and special operations forces will be hunting al-Qaida and working with local forces long after most U.S. troops have left. When Afghan troops take the lead in 2014, the U.S. remaining force will be basically an enduring presence force focused on counterterrorism, said National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, in remarks in Washington in mid-September. That will be augmented by teams that will continue to train Afghan forces, added White House spokesman Tommy Vietor. The White House insists this does not mean abandoning the strategy of counterinsurgency, in which large numbers of troops are needed to keep the population safe. It simply means replacing the surge of 33,000 U.S. troops, as it withdraws over the next year, with newly trained Afghan ones, according to senior White House Afghan war adviser Doug Lute It also means U.S. special operators and CIA officers will be there for the next turn in the campaign. Thats when Afghans will either prove themselves able to withstand a promised Taliban resurgence, or find themselves overwhelmed by seasoned Taliban fighters. U.S. officials liken it to a parent letting go of a childs wobbly bike, but with lives hanging in the balance. Were moving toward an increased special operations role, together with U.S. intelligence, Mulholland said, whether its counterterrorismcentric, or counterterrorism blended with counterinsurgency. As out-going head of U.S. Army Special Operations Command, Mulholland has been in charge of feeding a steady stream of troops to commanders in the field. He knows they need as many special operations troops as he can produce and send. Those special operations forces under his command include U.S. Army Rangers, known for their raiding operations against militant targets, and U.S. Special Forces Green Berets, whose stock in trade is teaching local forces to fight a common enemy so the U.S. doesnt have to. A foundation for specialoperations-style counterinsurgency is already under way staffed primarily by the Green Berets with the establishment of hundreds of sites in remote Afghan villages where the U.S. troops are paired with Afghan local tribesmen trained by the Americans, Mulholland explained. The program has been so successful in the eyes of NATO commanders that theyve assigned other special operators like Navy SEALs to the mission, and even paired elite troops with conventional forces to stretch the numbers and cover more territory. Senior U.S. officials have spoken of keeping a mix of 10,000 of both raiding and training special operations forces in Afghanistan, and drawing down to between 20,000 and 30,000 conventional forces to provide logistics and support. But at this point, the figures are as fuzzy as the future strategy. Whatever happens with U.S. troops, intelligence officers know they will be a key component. A senior U.S. official tasked with mapping out their role envisioned a possible future in which Afghan forces are able to hold Kabul and other urban areas, but the Taliban comes back in remote valleys or even whole provinces. In that event, the official said, CIA and special operations forces would continue to hunt al-Qaida in Taliban areas the Afghan forces cant secure. The official spoke on condition

of anonymity to discuss planning for sensitive operations. If the CIA built an intelligence network that could provide special operations forces with targets, we could do the job, said Maj. Gen. Bennet S. Sacolick, who runs the U.S. Armys Special Warfare Center and School. The only question will be which organization is in charge, and that will depend on the Afghan government, the senior U.S. official said. If Afghan authorities are comfortable with U.S. raiders continuing to operate openly, the special operations forces can lead, the official said. If they want a more covert presence, the CIA would lead, with special operation raiders working through them. The other branch of special operations the Green Berets and others Mulholland mentioned who specialize in training would continue to support the Afghans in remote locations, trying to keep the Taliban from spreading.

Immigrants fearing deportation make plans for kids

By JAY REEVES Associated Press BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Terrified by Alabamas strict new immigration crackdown, parents living in the state illegally say they are doing something that was unthinkable just days ago asking friends, relatives, co-workers and acquaintances to take their children if theyre arrested or deported. Many illegal immigrants signed documents in the past week allowing others to care for their children if needed, assistance groups say, and a couple living illegally in nearby Shelby County extracted a promise from the mans boss to send their three young children all U.S. citizens to Mexico should they be jailed under the law. A key sponsor of the measure, state Sen. Scott Beason, said such concerns werent raised when legislators were considering the bill. But for Maria Patino who prays every time she leaves home even a chance encounter with police could end with her two elementaryage children being left alone or taken to foster care if she and her husband are sent back to Mexico. Both are in the country illegally and have no friends or relatives close enough to take in the kids. Every time I leave I dont know if I will come back, Patino, 27, said through tears. I cant stop working. My daughters need shoes and other things. Social worker Jazmin Rivera helps dozens of Spanish-speaking immigrants fill out paperwork weekly, and many are now seeking legal documents called powers of attorney so friends and others could care for their children. People are scared, and they want to be sure their kids are safe if something happens to them, said Rivera, a case manager at the Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama. Beason, R-Gardendale, has his doubts about how widespread such cases really are. I would do whatever it took for my family to stay with me, he said. Its beyond my comprehension that you would just leave your children anywhere. Cristian Gonzalez, 28, said she has informally asked the manager of the rental property where she lives to take care of her 10-year-old daughter should she and her husband be arrested because they are illegal immigrants. The girl, a U.S. citizen who has medals for making good grades, needs to finish school in America and is deeply rooted in Alabama, she said. Gonzalez said their other three kids are too young to remain and will go back to Mexico with her and her husband even though they are U.S. citizens. Were afraid to go back to Mexico because of the drugs, the cartels and the killings, Gonzalez said. And we are afraid to stay here because of the law. Mexican authorities have struggled in the fight against

Occupy Wall Street needs a clear message, leader to be a movement

By CRISTIAN SALAZAR Associated Press NEW YORK To veterans of past social movements, the Occupy Wall Street protests that began in New York and spread nationwide have been a welcome response to corporate greed and the enfeebled economy. But whether the energy of protesters can be tapped to transform the political climate remains to be seen. Theres a difference between an emotional outcry and a movement, said Andrew Young, who worked alongside the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. as a strategist during the civil rights movement and served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. This is an emotional outcry. The difference is organization and articulation. The nearly four-week-old protest that began in a lower Manhattan park has taken on a semblance of organization and a coherent message has largely emerged: That the 99 percent who struggle daily as the economy shudders, employment stagnates and medical costs rise are suffering as the 1 percent who control the vast majority of the economys wealth continues to prosper. Labor unions and students joined the protest on Wednesday, swelling the ranks for a day into the thousands, and lending the occupation a surge of political clout and legitimacy. President Barack Obama said Thursday that the protesters were giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works; some Republicans have been seeking to cast Occupy Wall Street as class warfare. The growing cohesiveness and profile of the protest have caught the attention of public intellectuals and veterans of past social movements. I think if the idea of the movement is to raise the discontent that a lot of people from different walks of life and different persuasions have on the economic inequity in this country its been perfect, said the Rev. Al Sharpton, who plans to broadcast his nationally syndicated radio show from the park on Monday and five days later lead a jobs march in Washington, D.C.

drug cartels known for carrying out brutal killings as they try to tighten control over territory. Authorities say that countrys drug war has claimed thousands of lives. Under the law, police making traffic stops can question anyone suspected of being in the country illegally and jail them without bond if they lack proof of citizenship. Many police agencies say they have yet to begin enforcing the law because officers havent been trained in all of its intricacies. Still, fear runs deep among people living in the state without visas, passports, driver licenses and other documents. Patino isnt sure what would happen to her kids if she is arrested. Neither is stay-athome mom Cristian Carraon, who is in the country illegally yet is married to a U.S. citizen and has three children 8, 5 and 3 who also are citizens. My husband works from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. If I get deported, who is going to take care of my kids? she said.

Box Office

Robots take title as Real Steel earns $27.3M

By DAVID GERMAIN The Associated Press LOS ANGELES Boxing robots are the undisputed champions at the weekend box office. Hugh Jackmans Real Steel, set in a near-future when robot fighters have replaced humans in the ring, debuted at No. 1 with $27.3 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. A DreamWorks release distributed by Disney, Real Steel added $22.1 million in 19 overseas markets for a worldwide total of $49.4 million. The movie casts Jackman as a former boxer reluctantly thrown together with his young son as they turn a junkyard robot into a world-class contender. George Clooneys political saga The Ides of March was the runner-up, opening at No. 2 with $10.4 million. The Sony release stars Ryan Gosling as an aide to a presidential candidate (Clooney) caught up in scandal. Clooney also directed. The previous No. 1 movie, the Warner Bros. family film Dolphin Tale, slipped to No. 3 with $9.2 million, raising its domestic total to $49.1 million. Males accounted for two-thirds of the audience for Real Steel, though Jackmans sex appeal and a romantic subplot involving co-star Evangeline Lilly was a draw for women, said Dave Hollis, Disneys head of distribution. The movie brought in a solid mix of couples and parents with children, he said. Other than the sizable opening for Real Steel, it was a typically quiet fall weekend at theaters, a lull before big holiday movies start arriving in late October and early November. Overall domestic revenues totaled $94 million, virtually identical to the same weekend a year ago, when The Social Network led with $15.5 million, according to box-office tracker Real Steel felt like a summer movie, and I think that appealed to family audiences, said analyst Paul Dergarabedian. If you release a summerstyle movie in the fall, you can still grab a pretty good audience. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood. com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released today. 1. Real Steel, $27.3 million ($22.1 million international).

Famed pianist Roger Williams dies at 87

LOS ANGELES (AP) Roger Williams, the virtuoso pianist who topped the Billboard pop chart in the 1950s and played for nine U.S. presidents during a long career, died Saturday. He was 87. Williams died at his home in Los Angeles of complications from pancreatic cancer, according to his former publicist Rob Wilcox. Known as an electrifying stage performer and an adept improviser, Williams effortlessly switched between musical styles. Williams became a popular guest on the top television shows of the time including The Ed Sullivan Show, The Perry Como Show, and The Steve Allen Show.

2. The Ides of March, $10.4 million. 3. Dolphin Tale, $9.2 million. 4. Moneyball, $7.5 million. 5. 50/50, $5.5 million. 6. Courageous, $4.6 million. 7.

He is the first pianist to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He also received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Steinway & Sons. On his 75th birthday, Williams played a 12-hour marathon at Steinway Hall in New York City, a stunt he repeated several time in the following years. In March, Williams announced on his website that he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. A few days later he played his last concert, in Palm Desert, California. Williams is survived by his daughters, Laura Fisher and Alice Jung, and five grandchildren. Funeral services are pending.
