National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

50 daily Staff reports Advancements over the past two decades in the field of breast cancer treatment have brought much brighter prognoses to women and continuing research promises even sunnier days in the future. That is according to Dr. Chris Rhoades, director of the oncology program for the St. Ritas Professional Services in Lima. The difference today versus 20 years ago is in the effort to learn the genetics of the cancer, he said. Fifteen or 20 years ago, the chemotherapy treatments were all designed to just kill the cancer cell. Treatments now are being designed to impact the genetics of the cell to either turn it back into a normal cell or cause it to die. To illustrate the point further, Rhoades pointed out that breast cancer treatments in the past accepted the fact a certain amount of surrounding healthy tissue was going to be sacrificed during the chemotherapy and radiation process. That was as much to ensure all of the cancer was eradicated, if possible, as well as the technology of the day. Today, the treatments are targeted directly to the cancer cells. Starting with the Human Genome Project in the early 1990s and moving forward under discoveries made in subsequent years, breast cancer treatment research gravitated toward attacking the cancer cell at the gene level.

Breast cancer treatments taking big steps forward

The trends over the past five to seven years have been that we are finding the cancer at earlier stages. That allows us to have a higher cure rate since it is earlier in the course of the cancer. But even in the later stages, new treatments are increasing survival.
Dr. Chris Rhoades todays therapies are a result of that research and Rhoades said the future remains bright. That has made substantial progress, he said. Year by year, it is growing exponentially. Rhoades said the process involves mapping out the genes and then turning off or turning on certain genes. Some are considered enhancers while others are labeled suppressors, making it possible to shut down the tumor-producing cancer cells and reactivating normal activity. Those cells then spread through mitosis. He said it is a very sophisticated system but the treatments are not just limited to larger hospital facilities. More and more of the gene therapies are making their way to hospitals the size of St.


Delphos, Ohio Ritas and Van Wert Hospital. Even while those new treatments are being developed, the old remedies like chemotherapy and radiation have made strides as well. They have become much more focused over the years, causing less collateral damage to surrounding tissue. But before treatment can begin, the breast cancer must be found and diagnosed. Rhoades said there have also been big advancements in those areas. He said the use of MRIs to locate tumors as an enhancement to mammograms has been increasing steadily over the past few years. With the capability of hospitals the size of Van Wert to have access to MRI equipment, more women have See TREATMENT, page 9

Breast cancer affects men, too

cancer is nearly always curable with early detection and treatment. However, the most serious type of cancerous breast tumors have broken through the duct or lobular walls and invaded the surrounding tissue. These invasive and infiltrating tumors are labeled by the stage of the disease when it is discovered, from stage one through stage four. The determining factors include the spread through the breast and nearby organs, the extent of lymph node involvement, and if any spreading to distant organs (metastization) has occurred. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women, accounting for nearly 25 percent of all reported cases in U.S. women. Mary Grothause looks through her cancer files. She It is a myth, however, that whatever she needs is at her fingertips. men cannot have breast cancer.

Sleep expert: Drugs caused Michael Jacksons death

By LINDA DEUTSCH The Associated Press LOS ANGELES A UCLA sleep expert described Dr. Conrad Murrays use of a cocktail of drugs on Michael Jackson as unethical, disturbing and beyond comprehension. The combination of drugs used as Jackson struggled to fall asleep on the day he died was a recipe for disaster and ultimately caused his death, Dr. Nader Kamangar testified Thursday. Under questioning by Murrays attorney, J. Michael Flanagan, the witness was asked to tell jurors what he knew about the events of June 25, 2009, the day of Jacksons death. To summarize, Mr. Jackson was receiving very inappropriate therapy in a home setting, receiving very potent therapies without monitoring, Kamangar said. He said diazepam (Valium), lorazepam (Ativan) and midazolam (Versed) were given to the sleepless star during a 10-hour period throughout the night and morning. This cocktail was a recipe for disaster, Kamangar said. Noting the addition of propofol (Dipravan), a powerful anesthetic used in surgeries, Flanagan asked: Could this have caused death? Absolutely, Kamangar said. Absolutely. Authorities say Murray gave Jackson a fatal dose of propofol. Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter. The witness, one of the experts who evaluated Murrays actions for the California Medical Board, expressed dismay about the drugs Murray gave the pop star, his failure to immediately call 911 for help, and his lack of monitoring and record-keeping. Murray was unable to produce any written records on his treatment of Jackson, Kamangar noted. There were no records whatsoever, he said. Its very easy to forget details. We do not rely on memory. So its your opinion that theres no way he could have remembered what he did if he didnt write it down? Flanagan asked. It is an egregious violation of the standard of care when you are using sedatives like propofol and you are not writing it down, Kamangar answered.

US missile kills 4 in NW Pakistan

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) Drone-fired U.S. missiles killed four people in a northwestern Pakistani region controlled by the Haqqani militant network on Friday, a day after a similar attack there killed a top commander of the group, Pakistani officials said. The identities of the dead in the North Waziristan region were not known, the officials said. The four were riding in a car close to Miran Shah town, the main base of the Haqqani network, when two missiles struck, said the officials, who did not give their names because they were not allowed to brief reporters. U.S. intelligence believes the Haqqanis are the top threat to security in Afghanistan and

The defense lawyer pressed on, asking, Because he didnt write down the pulse rate, oxygen saturation, heart rate ... that didnt kill Michael Jackson, did it? Its a combination of factors, said Kamangar. But not the cause of death? asked Flanagan. Its a contributing factor, said the witness. Kamangar was the third prosecution expert to criticize the conduct of Murray. He said his first mistake was using propofol to treat insomnia, calling it an unacceptable application of the drug. He said Jacksons demand for the drug the subject of previous testimony was not a sufficient reason to give it. He also suggested Murray should have done a physical examination, taken a history from his patient about his insomnia, and called in other medical experts if necessary to evaluate the problem. The most important thing he should have done is call for help, Kamangar said. He said Murrays interview with police made it clear that he waited too long to call 911 when he found Jackson not breathing.

Gilbane Construction partners with Vantage

BY CANDY LAMMERS, Gilbane Building Co. Nineteen Vantage juniors have the opportunity of a lifetime. They have been nominated by their teachers and selected to participate in the Junior Builder program with Gilbane Building Company. Gilbane is the construction management firm responsible for the Vantage renovation and expansion project. The Ohio Schools Facilities Commission (OSFC) encourages some type of student inclusion on their projects to get students involved and informed about the exciting improvements being made to their school buildings. Gilbane Building Company believes student involvement is one of the most rewarding aspects of school construction and a great way for them to give back to the communities in which they work. These select students will meet with project managers once a month for the next 15 months and will have the chance to experience the Vantage project from the inside out. Gilbane developed their Junior Builder program several years ago to enhance student involvement and provide active student interaction with the firms and tradespersons building and renovating their schools. With Vantage being a Career Center, this project provides a unique opportunity for the Junior Builder program to have students who are enrolled in technical programs that are directly associated to the construction industry and activities which are happening right outside their classroom on the job site. Gilbane worked with the school administration to develop a tailor-made Junior Builder program specifically for the Vantage Career Center project. Gilbane and the school felt it important to include aspects into the program aimed at providing students with real life employment search experiences. As part of the selection process, Gilbane provided sample job applications from several of the trade contractors working on site. The students were given a deadline for submitting their applications in hopes of getting an interview. Gilbane then scheduled and conducted interviews with proposed Junior Builder students. We felt that the application and interview process was a great experience for the students to go through and use as a learning tool as they prepare to enter the work force, Candy Lammers said. All the candidates did an excellent job on the interviews resulting in 19 students being selected to participate in the Junior Builder program. The students will report to work to the Gilbane site office trailer the first Friday of every month. They will be divided into four groups that will specialize on different areas of the project, learning and having fun while doing so. The students will get to tour the job site monthly and gain valuable practical experience while shadowing trades related to their particular field of study. Some of these students may have never submitted a job application or had to go through an interview process before. Hopefully being part of this program will provide them with experiences they can use after graduation as well as provide real exposure to the things they are learning in the classroom, commented project manager Chad Stevers. One of the most exciting things about the Vantage

Junior Builder program is the possibility of the contractors identifying some high performing students that they might be interested in hiring next summer for an internship. Of course, this will depend on the contractors manpower needs at the time, but the students are aware of this possibility and are certainly going to be working hard to make it happen. The juniors graders that were chosen will be staying in the program for the rest of the school year and joining Gilbane again as Seniors for the 2012-2013 school year to see the project through completion. Gilbane is extremely excited about the Junior Builder program and the opportunity it provides to the students of Vantage Career Center. Students from Carpentry, Electricity, Industrial Mechanics, and Welding were chosen for program. Eight different home schools are represented in this group. The following students who have been selected to participate in the Jr. Builder program from Carpentry, Christian Fischer (Jefferson), Heath Girardot (Ottoville), Dylan Lawson (Paulding), Kavon Pierce (Van Wert) and Alexandria Strickland (Lincolnview); from Electricity, Tyler Farris (Crestview), Nathan Maas (St. Johns) and Blake Myers (Crestview); from Industrial Mechanics, Matt Burgei (Ottoville), Tyler Dobson (Lincolnview), Cody Dugan (Parkway), Zach Miller (Ottoville), Andrew Schnipke (Ottoville) and Luke Wrasman (St. Johns); and from Welding, Gary Carter (Van Wert), Brandon Combs (Crestview), Kasi Edwards (Paulding), Jody Richey (Lincolnview) and Chase Stahl (Van Wert).

We dont see things as they are, we see them as we are.

Supercommittee hit hard with Congressional advice

lion in 10-year savings, said Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas, the Senate Agriculture panels top Republican. The savings likely would come in part from trimming food stamps and other nutrition programs by $4 billion, said another lawmaker who spoke on condition of anonymity to reveal still private details. In addition, direct subsidies to farmers, which are paid regardless of crop prices or production, would be eliminated. With Congress due to consider a five-year farm bill next year, the proposal is aimed at heading off potentially deeper reductions. Generally, Republicans have said the supercommittee should focus more directly on shrinking the debt than on creating jobs. But with the relentlessly high unemployment rate a top national concern, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., acknowledged this week that the panel will likely consider some ideas for creating jobs. Senate Republicans have written a bill they say would create jobs by reworking the tax code, cutting federal regulations and easing restrictions on offshore oil exploration. The letters were striking for the consistency with which many defended programs that each committee oversees. Democrats from

One Year Ago Dolly Haunhorst took over making dressing for the St. Johns Fall Festival meals in the 1960s. Her daughter Dina Mauk, joined her when she was old enough to help. After her mother was killed in a car accident in 1990, Mauk found the dressing book among her mothers possessions. She rallied her sisters around the idea of continuing the Haunhorst tradition. 25 Years Ago 1986 St. Johns dropped a volleyball match to Continental 15-14, 4-15, 6-15 to lower their record to 8-12 (44-5 MAC). Beth Gengler led the Jays serving 14 for 15 for eight points, 29 for 34 in sets. Jill Reindel was six for eight in serving for five points, four for seven in hits, and four blocks. Evelyn Osborn served a hot dog to a students at Elida Middle School cafeteria as Sharon Brickner looked on. This month marks the 40th anniversary of the National School Lunch Program, which served nearly four billion lunched to 21 million school children last year. The Jefferson Wildcat varsity volleyball team dropped to 2-14 on the season with losses to Lima Perry and Upper Scioto Valley in recent action. High scorers in the Perry contest for Jefferson were Shelly Baker and Kristi Odenweller, each with seven points. In the Upper contest, high scorer for DJ was junior Margie Miller with seven points. 50 Years Ago 1961 President Kennedy was reported far from convinced today that U. S. troops should be sent now into South Viet Nams war against Communist guerrillas. The President was expected to discuss the question today along with the Berlin crisis, at a meeting of the National Security Council, his top policy advisory group. The cast for the junior class play at Jefferson High School was announced Friday. Cast members include Gale Miller, Barbara Fought, Carol Place, Jack Koch, Dennis Kiggins, Bill Doyle, Janis Thompson, Judy Swallow, Joe Mox, Karen Fosnaught, Hank Dienstberger, Doris Gabel, Bob Foust, Sandy Weaver, Ken Fair, Diane Long and David Lundgren. Final plans were made at the regular meeting of the Tri-County Democratic Club for the groups banquet which is to be held Oct. 25 in the American Legion. The following candidates were introduced: Harold Wieging, president of Delphos City Council; Albert C. Conley, second ward councilman; L. Ray Stemen and Cletus Baumgarte, Washington Township trustee; and Ira Brenneman and C. Simindinger, Jennings Township trustee. 75 Years Ago 1936 A group of members of the local American Legion Auxiliary were in Waynesfield Wednesday to attend the fall conference of the Auxiliary. Among those present from Delphos were Mrs. Ed. Becker, Mrs. Clarence Heisterman, Mrs. Lloyd Berry, Mrs. Ferman Clinger, Mrs. L. H. Schmelzer, Mrs. F. M. Freund, and Mrs. Syl Hotz. A Thanksgiving Day Eisteddfod will be held at the Vaughnsville High School auditorium under the auspices of the Gomer-Vaughnsville Male Chorus. Afternoon and evening sessions will be held. A number of Delphos singers are planning to enter the competition and a large number of Delphos music lovers will be in attendance. Mrs. Hubert Buchanan, East Suthoff Street, was hostess of the members of the Dorcas Class of the Lutheran Church and two guests, Mrs. Otto Dolt and Mrs. William Hollman, at her home Tuesday evening. Lucile Werner was in charge of the lesson which was Article Five of the Augsburg Confession.


Obama readies to dedicate MLK Memorial

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON (AP) Barack Obama once contemplated what it would be like to take his two daughters to the National Mall to see a monument to Martin Luther King Jr. I know that one of my daughters will ask, perhaps my youngest, will ask, Daddy, why is this monument here? What did this man do? Obama, then a senator representing Illinois, said during a 2006 groundbreaking ceremony for the memorial to the civil rights pioneer. Five years have passed since Obama reflected on those questions. The young senator is now president and the King memorial is complete, having opened to the public in August. Obama will get his chance to take daughters Malia and Sasha to the monument Sunday for the dedication ceremony, during which the countrys first black president will be a featured speaker. The dedication was originally scheduled for late August but was postponed after Hurricane Irene swept through the Washington region, dumping rain on the nations capital and disrupting travel plans for many of those who planned to attend the event. On Sunday, Obama will speak in front of a 30-foot sculpture of King, arms crossed, looking out into the horizon. The civil rights leader appears to emerge from a stone extracted from a mountain. The design was inspired by a line from the famous 1963 Dream speech delivered during the March on Washington in 1963: Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope. Situated between the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials, Kings is the first monument on the National Mall honoring a black leader. Obama was just 6 years old when King was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn. But he has often talked about the influence Kings life, particularly his commitment to public service, has had on him. In a 2009 newspaper editorial written just days before his inauguration, Obama wrote that King lived his life as a servant to others, and urged Americans to follow his example and find ways to enrich peoples lives in their communities and across the country. Valerie Jarrett, a White House senior adviser and longtime friend of the president, said she expects the presidents remarks to come straight from the heart. Kings willingness to sacrifice himself for our country, to fight for a dream he believed in, like justice and equality, really gave a foundation for President Obama becoming the president, Jarrett said. Obama is also looking forward to the opportunity to speak as a parent and to remind his daughters and other young people about the work that went into securing the liberties they may now take for granted, Jarrett said. When Obama imagined years ago taking his daughters to see the King monument, he couldnt have known he would do so as president. But he said when the monument was complete, he would tell his daughters that this man gave his life serving others. I will tell them that this man tried to love somebody. I will tell them that because he did these things, they live today with the freedom God intended, their citizenship unquestioned, their dreams unbounded.

WASHINGTON Congress flooded its supercommittee with a jumble of advice Thursday about taming the governments out-of-control debt, with top agriculture lawmakers readying a bipartisan plan to pare food and farm aid while others urged an aggressive hunt for savings coupled with warnings against cutting cherished programs. Most of the suggestions came from Democrats on 16 Republican-run House committees who sent letters to the special debt-cutting panel. Generally, their advice was to create jobs, raise revenue and avoid damaging cuts to public works, health care and other programs they said are crucial to an economic recovery. House Democrats are firmly committed to a deficit reduction plan that is big, bold and balanced, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in her own letter to the supercommittee. She said significant revenues must be part of the recipe and added, Creating jobs is the most effective way to reduce the deficit. In an atypical show of unity, Democrats and Republicans who lead the House and Senate Agriculture committees planned to propose $23 bil-

House downs funding abortion, Senate unlikely to follow suit

By JIM ABRAMS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON The House on Thursday returned to an abortion issue that nearly sank President Barack Obamas health care law last year with legislation that bars an insurance plan regulated under the new law from covering abortion if any of its customers receive federal subsidies. Providers that offer abortion coverage would have to set up identical plans without abortion coverage to participate in the health insurance exchanges to be set up under the new law. The legislation, which passed 251-172, is unlikely to be considered by the Democratic-led Senate and faces a veto threat from President Barack Obama. But it gives House Republicans, focused this year on cutting spending and reducing the size of the federal government, a chance to reaffirm their credentials on social conservative issues. Democrats chided Republicans for wasting time better spent on promoting job growth. Supporters of the bill, including author Rep. Joe
By JENNIFER AGIESTA Associated Press

the House Foreign Affairs Committee argued that foreign aid, which accounts for about 1 percent of the federal budget, already has borne a disproportionate share of cuts. Democrats on the Homeland Security Committee said they support deficit reduction that does not put our nation at greater risk for a terrorist attack, while Transportation Committee Democrats wrote, Infrastructure investment is a critical tool to reduce the deficit because it creates jobs. Republicans and Democrats on the House Armed Services Committee sent separate letters to the supercommittee but agreed that the military should be pared no deeper than cuts that have already been enacted. Additional reductions in the base budget of the Department of Defense will compound deep reductions Congress has already imposed and critically compromise national security, the top members of Armed Services panel wrote. Arizona Sen. John McCain, the leading Republican on the Senate Armed Services panel, also trumpeted that theme, vowing to fight any defense cuts that this years debt ceiling law would automatically trigger if Congress fails to approve major savings.

Unsatised Republicans still looking for candidate

WASHINGTON If polls show one thing with certainty, its that Republicans arent sold on Mitt Romney and theyve been looking for other presidential candidates. At least eight other Republicans have seen their standings soar in GOP primary surveys since the beginning of the year. Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee and Rudy Giuliani didnt run. Nor did Donald Trump. And among those who actually got in the race, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, and now, Herman Cain all have sat near or at the top of national polls, at least briefly. The indecisiveness is a reflection on Romney, who hasnt been able to lock up the GOPs support even though hes essentially been running for president since losing his 2008 bid. Many Republicans know him. They just dont love him. A recent Associated PressGfK poll found that 64 percent of conservative Republicans viewed Romney favorably but only 20 percent had deeply positive opinions about him. The GOP is in a rebellious and ultraconservative mood, said Andrew Kohut, president of the Pew Research Center. And, he added, Mitt Romney is not rebellious. Or, for that matter, ultraconservative. Consider that in a Tuesday debate, Romney defended the 2008-2009 Wall Street bailout that irks the tea party and declared that he could work with good Democrats. He also gave one of his most spirited defenses of his health care initiative when he was Massachusetts governor, legislation that President Barack Obama has called a partial blueprint for his own national overhaul. While those positions may make him appealing to a wider swath of Americans in next falls election, they greatly disturb conservatives who dominate the GOP primary electorate. And that helps explain why some Republicans have been itching for someone else. Generally, Republicans say that Romney has more experience and a better chance to beat Obama next fall than anyone else in the field. But those on the partys right flank doubt whether he more so than other candidates shares their values. Conservatives in the potential Republican electorate were deeply divided on that question in a CBS News/New York Times poll early this month.

Pitts, R-Pa., say they are trying to close loopholes in the health care act that could lead to violations of the longstanding prohibition of the federal funding of abortion. Opponents warn that millions of middle- and lowincome women who receive partial subsidies to buy insurance would be denied abortion coverage. They said most providers were unlikely to set up two separate plans, one with abortion coverage. The legislation also strengthens conscience protections for anti-abortion health care providers. Again there is divergence between bill supporters saying they are merely clarifying existing law and opponents saying it will lead to hospitals denying emergency care to pregnant women. The legislation revives the debate that almost scuttled the health care act. Former Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., leading a rebellion of antiabortion Democrats, joined Pitts in pushing through an amendment that imposed tight restrictions on abortions in the proposed governmentrun insurance plan. When the Senate wouldnt go along, Stupak got Obama to sign

an executive order reaffirming the Hyde Amendment, a 1976 provision named after the late Rep. Henry Hyde, R-Ill., that bans all federal funds for abortion except in cases of rape, incest and when the life of the mother is at risk. Pitts argued that the executive order can be rescinded at any time and the new health care act is not bound to follow the Hyde Amendment. As a result, said Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., the law, when phased in fully in 2014 will open up the floodgates of public funding for abortion in a myriad of programs. But the White House, in issuing its veto threat, said the health care law preserves the ban on federal funding and the legislation intrudes on womens reproductive freedom and access to health care and unnecessarily restricts the private insurance choices that women and their families have today. Under the law, federally subsidized health care plans can offer abortion coverage but they have to set up separate accounts to segregate federal funds from funds that can be used for abortion coverage.

Only 12 percent chose Romney, while nearly half picked Cain (20 percent), Bachmann (18 percent) or Perry (11 percent). Such divisions have been the most defining factor of the race so far. Its not just Romney who has failed to solidify his support with the Republican primary electorate. None of the other candidates who have risen in polls has been able to, either. Until now, Republicans have been bouncing from candidate to candidate and even some noncandidates in search of the perfect nominee. But with the GOP field set and no more people flirting with bids, its entirely possible that Republicans will rally behind one candidate perhaps even Romney between now and January when the first votes are cast. Indeed, a host of Republicans 76 percent in a recent CBSNew York Times poll said it was too early to say who they would support when voting begins in January. Just 19 percent said they had firmly chosen a candidate. The volatile race is taking place in a dramatically different Republican Party than the one that nominated John McCain and for much of the 2008 race strongly favored the thrice-married Giuliani.

New Knoxville tops Blue Jays to finish regular season

By MEGAN GREVE The Delphos Herald

DELPHOS The New Knoxville volleyball team finished the regular season at 13-9 as they defeated Midwest Athletic Conference rival St. Johns 25-22, 25-11, 25-15 Thursday night at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium. The loss spoiled Senior Night for three Blue Jays: Nicole Winhover, Shelby Reindel and Maggie Wehri. Both squads were evenly matched in the first set as they traded serves through the first 20 points. We did very well reading their hitters tonight; thats something that weve been working on in the last couple weeks is just reading their hands on tip, whether or not theyre hitting, that sort of thing, Blue Jay head coach Kellie Sterling said. Now we just need to concentrate on finishing. New Knoxville started to separate with a few errors by the Blue Jays but the home squad pulled it back with a block that scored from junior Heather Vogt (9 kills; 5 blocks) and another from Vogt and junior teammate Madison Zuber. However, more errors allowed the Rangers to take the points and the set. The second set found the visitors playing more aggressively, according to head coach Jill Roode, as they began with a scoring block from senior Haley Dillon (9 kills) and junior Taylor Niemeyer and an ace from sophomore Haley Horstman (2 aces; 24 assists). The difference in the second and third game was that we cleaned up our errors and

Lancer boys send soccer seniors out in style

MIDDLE POINT - The Lincolnview Lancer boys soccer team sent their seniors out in style Thursday with a 5-0 win over the Spencerville Bearcats on Senior Night. This ensured the team a winning record in its first varsity season as they end the season 6-4. [The seniors] have played a huge role. Some of them have played five or six years now. Weve gotten good leadership out of them. Theyre great kids and they are a big part of our program, Lincolnview coach Mark McCleery said. The Lancers took an early 1-0 lead to start the match and were threatening again with just under 20 minutes to play in the first half. Nick Leeth was fouled by a Spencerville defender, who was issued a yellow card. On the Leeth free kick, another Bearcat was issued a yellow card, which allowed for a Lancer penalty kick. Clayton Longstreth took the kick for the Lancers, pushing the ball past the Spencerville keeper to give Lincolnview a 2-0 lead with 19:25 to play in the first half. Just over five minutes later, Conner McCleery controlled the ball deep in Bearcat territory and found Nathan Johnston streaking. Johnston put the ball in-net with a header to give the Lancers a 3-0 lead with 14:20 to play in the first half. Two minutes later, Longstreth had the ball on the Bearcat side of the field. He was fouled just outside the penalty box, which set up a Lancer free kick. He sent the ball sliding across the grass into the bottom corner of the goal to increase the Lancer advantage to four, 4-0. Just before half, the Lancers got their second penalty kick attempt, this time taken by Bryce Campbell. Campbell went left-side but just missed the goal. The score remained 4-0 at the break. The Bearcats turned up the heat on the Lancer defense in the second half. They managed a corner kick with 13:30 to play in the match and recorded shots-on-goal at the 7:46, 4:34 and 41-second marks. Following the last Bearcat shot-on-goal with 41 seconds to play, the Lancer defense

started hitting more aggressively and keeping serves when we had them, Roode said. The difference in the second and third game is that we didnt have just one hitter; we had two and three girls hitting for us. St. Johns parried but the Rangers kept them at arms length until they made an 11-1 run, capped off with a series of scoring blocks from senior April Cain (8 kills; 2 blocks), Paige Lehman (1 ace; 4 kills), Dillon and Horstman to put them ahead 19-7. Two scores from Reindel (15 kills) tried to bring St. Johns back but it wasnt enough to take away the Rangers lead, which they kept until the end. April Cain has been a defensive threat for us all year long but she has not been the offensive threat like she has the past two games, Roode added. Haley Dillon has been an offensive threat all season long, Paige Lehman has been an offensive threat all season long. The third set started much like the first, with teams trading serves to a 10-10 tie. St. Johns connected with the net on several shots to give the Rangers the lead but a spike-block-spike series by Vogt brought the home team back in the set down 17-15. However, difficulties finishing sets sealed the fate for St. Johns as the Rangers took the set and match with a sweep. St. Johns falls to 3-18 on the year (0-9 MAC), with their first tournament game coming Tuesday against CoryRawson at Ottoville (6 p.m.). New Knoxville prepares to meet Parkway at Coldwater on Tuesday. The Blue Jays junior varsity topped the Rangers 2-0.

Speedy T-Birds fly by Lady Jays

By JIM METCALFE LIMA Lima Central Catholics girls soccer team has been bedazzling foes with its speed all during 2011. St. Johns found out Thursday night that on the turf of Lima Stadium, they are even faster. The Lady Thunderbirds bid goodbye to 12 seniors as they whipped the Lady Blue Jays 6-0 under the lights. They are fast, not only up front but in the middle and the back. They present a lot of problems, especially on this fast turf; they are used to this, while we arent, Lady Jays coach John Munoz noted. They are very good at supporting their forwards from the flanks. I was very impressed with them and what they have on the field. The Lady Jays (3-13) didnt give up a lot of shorts on-goal 12 despite that speed but the hosts (10-3-3) were very efficient at their marksmanship. We have a lot of weapons with that speed; weve used it well all year. It seems that in the past week or so, this group has really gelled and played together, head coach Mike Santaguida remarked. We have those 12 seniors and they are By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald definitely the ones that set the pace for us. Weve tried to implement a new system all year and the girls seem to have finally adjusted to it. The Blue Jays struggled enough to not even challenge LCC senior keeper Jayna Clemens. What efforts they did have toward the goal, she snuffed out before anything could come of them. On the other end, LCC broke through at 38:41 when senior Shayna Niese, off a corner kick, finally got possession and pushed in a 6-yarder high side inside the right post past St. Johns junior keeper Morgan Musser (4 saves vs. 11 shots) for a 1-0 score. It became a 2-nil edge at 35:17 when senior Kelly Ahman, one of the T-Birds most known for her wheels, got on a great run down the left side. She veered toward the middle and went left side from 10 yards. Musser had a nice stop on a Niese try at 32:10 but couldnt come up with one at 28:58. Senior Bri Kidd got an open look from 25 yards that headed toward the right side. With the ball slippery due to off and on rains prior to the match and during the first half, the ball slipped through the hands of Musser and into the twine for a 3-0 edge.

DELPHOS The Jefferson Wildcats volleyball team hosted Kalida Thursday evening on Senior Night and fell in three sets, 25-19, 25-17, 25-15. The Lady Jeffcats will graduate two seniors: Nadine Clarkson and Kelsey Goodwin. Jefferson ends their regular season at 1-18 while Kalida improved to 14-8. The first set was a close one but Kalida started off strong and gained an early 12-6 lead with a Kayla Siefker (3 kills) kill. The Jeffcats rallied back with a big block by sophomore Katie Goergens to bring her team within three, 14-11. An overpass by the LadyCats defense set up Goergens for an easy putdown for a 16-16 tie. An Elizabeth Turnwald kill, assisted by Halie Zenz, put Kalida back on top 19-16 and they finished strong for a first-set victory. Set 2 was led by Kalidas Haley McIntyre with four kills and Brandi Merschman with three kills and three blocks. A McIntyre attack gave Kalida a slight edge, 13-11, but Jefferson fought hard and didnt give up. An ace by junior Fallon Van Dyke brought the Jeffcats within five, 22-17, but with the help of Turnwald and

Zenz, the set was won by Kalida. The third set was led by McIntyre with three kills and two blocks but Jeffersons defense was right there with the help of sophomore Rileigh Stockwell and her 10 digs in the third set alone. The LadyCats quickly took a 7-2 lead thanks largely to McIntyre but Jefferson came back to pull within four, 12-8, with a Goergens kill. A couples of ace by Turnwald and Amy Smith gave Kalida a commanding 20-12 lead and they closed out the set and match. The Jeffcats were led by Goergens with 10 kills, two blocks and 13 digs. Stockwell had eight kills, three blocks and a team-best 18 digs. We played a great game tonight and I am really proud of the seniors, Jefferson coach Joy Early said. I am also proud of Katie Goergens and Rileigh Stockwell tonight for their hard work. Rileigh played an all-around great game.

At the 22:50, LCC finished off firsthalf scoring as Ahman got on another run down the middle and veered toward the right post; her 10-yarder went left side for a 4-0 edge. The Jays defense then gave up only one more real chance the rest of the half. The score stood until 25:16 remained in the contest. This time, Ahman made the cross pass from the left side to the middle, with freshman Sydney Santaguida getting an open 12-yarder that got just inside the right post for a 5-0 advantage. They finished it off at 24:17 when senior Brooke Davenport got control of a bouncing ball on the left wing and deposited a 15-yarder to the opposite side. Blue Jay junior Riley Hamilton played the last 20 minutes between the pipes and garnered one save on one shot on-goal. We were much better defensively the second half, Munoz added. We tried to make a few more runs on the offensive end but their speed was just too much for us to get much going. St. Johns takes on Allen East at 5 p.m. Saturday at Elida to open Division III sectional play. LCC is off until Thursday when they play Saturdays Jefferson/ Lincolnview winner. Macy Schroeder showed off her soccer skills by dribbling through the Ottoville defenders but Kramer showed off her goalkeeping abilities as she stopped the attempt to keep the score at 2-0. Macys sister Morgan tried to one-up her sibling less than a minute later with a pointblank shot from 18 yards out but the results were the same as the Lady Green keeper kept the ball from going into the net. Despite the dominance of the ball control of the guests, Koch attempted to make her Senior Night a good one; she had probably one of the better chances for the Green with 18:13 to go as she slid past her defender and delivered a blow at the net but it banked the side of the goal, giving the Musketeers a goal kick. Much of the remainder of the contest was spent on throw-ins as it seemed every kick would find its way across the touch line; that turned out to favor the visitors, being up two goals and chewing valuable time off the clock. The only thing we didnt do well in the first half was possession. I told them to work on possession and I think we did that in the second half, Wagner added. The victory sets Fort Jennings at 11-3-1, while Ottoville falls to 10-6 as the teams prepare for a nearly all PCL sectional at Ottoville, with the lone outsiders being the Crestivew Lady Knights. The tournament action gets underway next Tuesday: Ottoville vs. Crestview at 5:15 p.m. and Fort Jennings versus Miller City at 7:15 p.m.

Fort Jennings Musketeers upend archrival Ottoville Lady Green

OTTOVILLE When you take control of the field position, more often than not you are going to come out victorious in a soccer match. That is exactly what the Fort Jennings Lady Musketeers did on Thursday in their rematch cleared to Leeth, who was waiting on the Bearcat side of the field. Leeth took the ball past his defender and kicked in the ball with 12 seconds showing on the clock. The late score gave Lincolnview a 5-0 lead for the final score 5-0. McCleery said the win was big but seeing the seniors play in their last home game was a sad moment. Overall, tonight was bittersweet because this was the last home game for our seniors. Its our first year with a varsity program and the first year we graduate some of our seniors, he added. The Lancers will return to action Monday as they travel to Kalida to take on the Ottoville Big Green in the opening round of the sectional tournament. I thought three weeks ago I wanted to play Ottoville. We got them so we will see how we do, McCleery ended. Theyre a team that we scrimmaged in the preseason and we played them in JV. We kind of measure ourselves against them. It will be a great matchup for us; we are looking forward to it. Spencerville takes on LCC 7 p.m. Monday at the Lima Senior Division III sectional. with the Ottoville Lady Green. Not only did the rain put a damper on the Lady Greens Senior Night, their foes from three miles up the road did as well as Kristen Maag scored two first-half goals to give the Musketeers a 2-0 victory. We hoped to get on the board quickly so that we could get everyone in and get ready for tournament play. We may need some of them and wanted them to get more experience, Jennings coach Rodney Wagner commented. The guests wasted no time in getting off the first shot of the match, coming just 90 seconds in on a free kick from about 18 yards out, but Ottoville keeper Lauren Kramer was there for the save. The Green were able to answer back with a shot of their own as Jenna Warnecke delivered from about 18 yards out but, as at the other end of the pitch, the attempt was thwarted, this time on the part of Jennings senior keeper Kelsey Von Lehmden. The first goal of the evening would come on only the Musketeers third shot on-goal as Morgan Schroder set up a corner kick and found Maag on the left side of the net; the junior delivered the kick across and into the far left side of the net to make it a 1-0 count with 26:30 to go before the half. Right place, right time; we have been working on that and with this field, it is a little narrower than we are used to working on. She (Maag) was in the right place at the right time and we were able to take advantage of it, Wagner stated. Ottoville had its share of attempts in the first 40 minutes and came up with a couple of defensive gems as well; April Horstman got back on defense and stopped a Musketeer push towards the net with 25:05 to go in the half to keep it at a 1-0 deficit. However, Maag delivered again for Jennings with 18:22 showing on the clock, driving one past Kramer from the top of the box on nearly a head-on delivery that went to the right of the goalkeeper, giving the Orange and Black a 2-0 advantage. Nevertheless, the Ottoville defense continued to plug away, stopping an Emily Grone attempt at the 15:46 mark. Less than a minute later, it appeared that Grone had gotten one in as she got behind the Lady Green defenders and put an easy shot past Kramer. However, it looked easy for a reason as a penalty was called and the goal was negated. From that point to the end of the half, the Big Green slowly started to take control of the field position. Lauren Koch had an attempt at Von Lehmden late in the half but again the Jennings goalie stopped the effort. As the rains picked up in the second half, so did the Musketeers intensity and control of the ball. Ottoville got less than a handful of opportunities in the second 40 minutes as the sphere was in the visitors offensive side of the pitch for much of the time.

Jefferson soccer ends regular season on a sour note

By Mallory Kemper The Delphos Herald

Elida/Defiance a tale of 2 halves

By FRANK GERMAN The Delphos Herald ELIDA Defiance traveled to the Elida Sports Complex Thursday for a Western Buckeye League challenge in boys soccer. The two teams, on a wet field due to rain in the first half, played to 33 tie. The rain began just minutes before the start of the match and ended only minutes before halftime. It dampened the last regular season home match for Elida on their Senior Night. They were honored before the game. I am really proud of the guys tonight; it is our Senior Day and for them to come back from 3 goals down at halftime shows a lot of resolve, Elida coach Tom Thomas expressed. Defiance controlled the first half but Elida tried to do damage first. Elida took the first shot ongoal at the 36:40 mark with Trey Bowman going wide right, hitting the outside of net. Defiance took control of the half from there with the first goal of the match at the 30:47 point. Jordan Tobias scored from 21 yards out almost dead center, putting it in the net just right of center. This made it 1-0. Defiance tried to score again just a little over 3 1/2 minutes later when Colin Whitesell took a shot on-goal from left to right but it just crossed in front of the net, going out of bounds on the other side. Shea Murray of Defiance did not wait long and got his goal with 26:51 left in the half. He came crashing the gate with a shot at the net on the left side for a 2-0 Defiance lead. Elida tried to get into the act and got its second shot on-goal over 10 minutes after its first attempt. Bowman once again took a shot from 10 yards out going right to left but just missed wide. Austin Fraley tried to give Defiance a 3-goal lead with a shot on-goal at the 23:07 spot. He took it from 12 yards straight out but the goalkeeper caught the ball. Elida tried another attempt to get on the board over nine minutes from the previous shot. Jared Houston kicked from left of the goal to the right with the goalie stopping it. Defiance came very close to getting its third goal when Fraley got a direct kick to Doug Herrett ,whose shot hit the top of the goal and bounce away. Defiance did finally get that third goal at the 9:54 mark when Tobias scored his second goal on the evening with an assist from Fraley. Fraley was right of the goal and kicked to the center, where Tobias got the goal crashing the gate. This would be the final goal of the first half, though Defiance tried once more but came up empty-handed in this attempt. Elida attempted two shots on-goal in the final 1:31 but to no avail as the half ended 3-0, Defiance. We did our job in the first half but then in the second half we got tense with the game. Elida is not going to fall down and give in, Defiance coach Carlos Lopez expounded. We got caught on a mistake which was Elidas first goal and their second goal could have gone either way. They got the third goal and that is how the game ended. Elida opened up the second half wanting to get the goose-egg off the scoreboard and wasted little time in doing so, scoring 2:54 into the half. Houston passed the ball to Bowman, who took the pass from about 35 yards out. He then dribbled the ball down, taking the shot on-goal from about 15 yards out down the middle for a 3-1 deficit. Elidas next score came from a penalty kick in the box. A Defiance player knocked down an Elida player in the box, giving Elida the opportunity and they took advantage of it. Bowman made the kick just past the goal keeper. Elida had new life and tried to take leverage from it as Defiances lead shrunk to 3-2. Elidas next goal came on the fourth attempt since their last goal. Houston was at the right place at the right time and took advantage of the gift

given him. The ball rebounded out of the pack and he kicked the goal from 12 yards out from right to left past the goal keeper for a 3-all tie with 12:53 left in the match. Both teams took two shots each at the goal over the next eight minutes but neither could capitalize on the attempts. Elida got a free kick with seconds left from about 25 yards out; the ball was batted around in the mob in front of the net. Elidas Riley Overholt got the head shot on the ball and put it in a second too late. The Elida players thought they beat the buzzer but the officials ruled it was after time had expired ending the match at 3-3. The players showed a lot guts to come out and play like they did in the second half, I am really proud of them. We missed the win by literary one second and the officials were right, Thomas added. We are proud of the effort in the second half to get the tie out of it. Elidas record overall is 4-9-2 and 2-5-2 in the WBL. They play Wapakoneta Wednesday night at Shawnee at 5 p.m. I am proud of the team and the effort they gave. When you play here at Elida, it is a great team and great crowd. Elida is not going to fold, Lopez added. Defiance is 4-8-3 (2-42 WBL 2-4-2) and plays Van Wert in sectionals Wednesday.

LadyCats stumble early, recover to belt Knights

By Charlie Warnimont Delphos Herald Correspondent KALIDA Crestview shocked Kalida with an early goal Thursday evening to start their non-league girls soccer match. That was about the only thing that went wrong for the Wildcats as they scored five unanswered goals on their way to a 6-2 win over the Knights on a damp evening in Kalida. Crestview (7-6-2) scored the first goal of the contest just 2 1/2 minutes in as Brooke Bowen dribbled the ball down the right side of the field and into the box. She was able to clear a Wildcat defender and put a shot on-goal that snuck into the right side of the goal, between the post and Kalida goalie Erika Brinkman. That would be the last time the Knights had the ball on their offensive end of the field in the first half as Kalidas defense didnt allow another ball past them the rest of the half. With the Wildcats controlling the ball the rest of the half they were able to build a 3-1 halftime lead. Kalida (12-0-3) tied the match 1-1 with 35:14 left in the half as freshman Jackie Gardner converted a direct kick from 25 yards out after the Knights were called for a foul. Gardner took her kick from the right side of the field and aimed her shot to the far post putting the shot past the Knight keeper. When Jackie was lining up for the shot I told her to hit the crossbar, Kalida coach David Kehres said. She kind of looked at me and I said hit the crossbar. When you tell them to hit the crossbar they usually kick it over and just put it just under the bar. I wanted her to aim for something and not just kick the ball. She usually doesnt take the free kicks but tonight we had her do it. The Wildcats pressure led to a near-goal under a minute later when Justine Verhoff took a shot from close range. Crestview goalie Megan Foster was in perfect position to nab the attempt. Verhoff wouldnt be denied on her next attempt as she stole a Crestview pass just outside the box, dribbled inside the box and lined a shot past a diving Foster with 31:58 left in the half. Kalida made it 3-1 with 28:26 left in the half when Gardner converted another direct kick in about the same fashion as she did the first time. The Wildcats had several more shots on-goal the rest of the half but either sent them wide, high or into the arms of Foster. Gardner did attempt another free kick in the half and this time she put off the crossbar and back into the field of play. Kalida added two goals to their lead early in the second half as junior Summer Holtkamp got in on the scoring act. Holtkamp scored just over 90 seconds into the half as she took a crossing pass in front of the goal, turned and scored. Five minutes later, she scored her second goal of the match as she stole a pass and lined a shot past the Crestview goalie. The score remained 5-1 until there was 3:12 left when the Knights scored their second goal off a direct kick. A Crestview player took the kick and played it towards the Kalida goal. Brinkman came out to play the shot but it bounced high and past her. Madison Etzler was able to settle the ball and knock it into the Wildcat goal. Kalida got that goal back with three seconds left when Alexis Wurth nailed a penalty kick after a Knight player was called for a foul in the box. Kalida outshot the Knights 20-2 for the contest as Foster made 11 saves. We came out flat and I wasnt happy with the way we started, Kehres added. Our defense was a little unorganized and they were able to get the ball out wide and take it in. It wasnt the way we wanted to start the game. After that, the girls realized they had better start playing. We played pretty well tonight; it was a good team effort. I was proud of the way the girls played tonight. Kalida awaits Tuesdays Ottoville/Crestview victor at Ottoville to play at 5 p.m. Thursday.

FORT JENNINGS Senior Night at Keith R. Hamel field for the Jefferson Wildcats girls soccer team ended in a 4-1 Northwest Conference loss against Allen East Thursday night. The Wildcats are losing six seniors: Cassidy Bevington, Haley Drerup, Megan Gilden, Carla Horstman, Elizabeth Schosker and Amanda Vorst; and end their regular season record at 4-9-2. The first goal came early for the Mustangs when no helpdefense back for Jefferson as sophomore Cheynne Bierly made a crossover move and was wide open as she took a shot six yards away from the goal; Jefferson goalie Bevington dove but just missed for a 1-0 Allen East edge at the 36:33 mark. The ball was controlled most of the first half by Allen East. At the 21:06 mark, Abby Joyner had an almost perfect corner kick right at Claudia Rettig, who kicked the ball into the back right corner of the net for a 2-0 lead. With 15 minutes to play. Jefferson took control and Schosker was wide open when she took a shot on-goal but it was right at Mustang netminder Kyra Plaugher. Three minutes later, freshman Kylee Haehn hit the top of the goal post and then followed her ball but was just right of the goal. With five minutes left in the opening half, Joyner gave a crossover pass to classmate Whitney Miller, who tapped the ball toward the net and

slowly made it to the back before Bevington could get there for a 3-0 Mustangs lead at the end of the half. Jefferson possessed the ball more the second half as they took three shots on-goal. The Wildcats got off early with Schosker left wide open 20 yards away from the goal and she took a shot at the 34:30 mark to hit the back left corner for a Jefferson score and a 3-1 deficit. The Wildcats were pumped up as they used their passing skills to get the ball down to Jenna Moreo, who took a shot eight minutes later but her 10-yard laser was far left. The Mustangs got the ball down to their end and Bierly took a shot on-goal but Bevington was right there with the save. With 24 minutes left, Bevington was out of the box and Cheyenne Sweigart took a chip shot as the ball floated into the back of the net for a 4-1 lead. The ball was controlled mainly at midfield the remaining of the half and Allen East took the victory. The girls definitely came out stronger the second half, executing, maintaining possession and player harder, Jefferson coach Lindsey Drerup said. Today was a bittersweet game for us with the seniors playing their last home game and we are losing a lot of key players but the season isnt over with yet. The Wildcats play their first tournament game on Saturday at Elida against Lincolnview (3 p.m.), whom they beat during the season. Allen East takes on St. Johns at 5 p.m. at the same location.

in Western Buckeye League action and fell 26-24, 25-23, 26-24 in a close match.

Once upon a time, there was this controversial quarterback. Even his strongest defenders admitted that he was a ery eld general, not a conventional pinpoint passer. He made lots of big plays with his legs, dodging tacklers and creating havoc until he could unload the ball. His throwing motion wasnt much to look at, either. Purists said he brought the ball way too low while winding up to re it deep. On top of all that, he was devoutly religious and very conservative. He was especially vocal about social issues, such as his belief that sex should be reserved for marriage -- period. Talent scouts were divided. Many were sure he would never succeed in professional football, even though he was a Heisman Trophy winner. Besides, Roger Staubach had to serve as a Navy ofcer before he could start his Hall of Fame career with the Dallas Cowboys. Wait a minute. You thought this was some other quarterback? Week after week, the experts who dissect events in the National Football League have been struggling with the whole question of whether or not Tim Tebow -- an even more outspoken version of Staubach -- has a future with the Denver Broncos, other than as a third-string quarterback carrying a clipboard

God, Tebow and the NFL


On Religion
on the sideline. The problem at the local level, of course, is the choir of Tebow supporters chanting his name in the stands. The problem at the national level is that its rare for a backup quarterback to be so popular that his NFL jersey was last years third highest-selling -- which is up in Peyton Manning and Tom Brady territory. The big problem is that its hard for fans to separate Tebow the inexperienced professional quarterback from Tebow the experienced missionary and evangelical superstar. Journalists are struggling with the Tebow culture wars, as well. Tebow had to be himself, which means letting everyone know exactly where he stands, consequences be damned, noted columnist Deron Snyder of the Washington Times. Essentially he drew a line that separated him from everyone else -- not in

a better-than-thou sort of way, but a marked distinction nonetheless -- and weve been picking sides ever since. Along the way, weve had difculty in keeping our opinions unencumbered. Thoughts on Tebow the Christian get mixed with Tebow the Quarterback. Tebow the Hyped is entangled with Tebow the Great Guy. Over at the sports Vatican called ESPN, veteran scribe Rick Reilly has had enough of what he called a stained glass window quarterback controversy. In particular, Reilly is tired of getting waves of emails that sound like this one from West Virginia: You only bash Tebow because he is a Christian and he does not t into your pop culture mold of great athletes. ctually, noted Riley, Tebow is not the rst muscular Christian to take the eld. Whose god Tim Tebow worships has zero to do with my criticism of him. Its his business, he wrote. Like I care. Tebow is about the 1,297th-most outwardly Christian athlete Ive covered. He doesnt stick his god down my throat. Doesnt genuect after touchdowns. Doesnt answer every question with, Well, rst, let me thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and, yes, I think I did pull my groin in the third quarter. And even if he did, it wouldnt affect

what I write about him. Ive covered openly devout athletes for 33 years. Lord knows Im used to it. Yes, there have been plenty of other traditional believers in professional sports and most of them managed to avoid controversy. However, they were safe precisely to the degree that they remained silent on issues that linked their faith to hot-button moral, cultural and, in this age, political questions. Snyder, for example, stressed that quarterback Kurt Warner was a strong believer who avoided controversy. Thats true -- sort of. The only problem is that Warner did get caught in a media restorm during the 2006 World Series, when he appeared in an advertisement opposing a Missouri bill supporting embryonic stem cell research. The bottom line: Athletes who speak out can expect media fallout. The accelerant in this debate is religion, which along with race and politics forms our trinity of third-rail topics, concluded Snyder. Tebow isnt a litmus test for faith in God and belief in Jesus Christ, but that wont stop the saints and the aints from issuing grades.

Social support cuts breast cancer deaths by almost half

(MS) Being loved and feeling loved can help prevent a recurrence of cancer and reduce fatality rates among those battling the disease, offers a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. A strong social support system can play a large role in how people diagnosed with cancer manage the disease. Those with emotionally satisfying relationships may have prolonged life expectancy or even ward off a relapse of cancer later on. The study was conducted by Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the Shanghai Institute of Preventative Medicine over the last eight years. Researchers worked with patients enrolled in the Shanghai Breast Cancer Survivor Study who completed a quality of life survey after six months of being diagnosed with cancer. The majority of patients completed a followup survey 30 months later. Responses on different physical issues were calculated into a general quality of life score. Roughly five years later, researchers documented participants who had cancer recurrences or had died from the disease. Compared to women with low scores, women who had the highest quality of life score had a 48 percent reduction in another cancer occurrence and a 38 percent reduction in the risk of death. The findings of the study indicate that strong emotional and social support early after a diagnosis of breast cancer can be a strong ally in a woman or mans fight with the disease. Oncologists and therapists can use these study results to help develop a support network for breast cancer patients as part of the course of treatment for the disease. Such social support is especially important in the first year after a cancer diagnosis. Marital satisfaction is also a key factor in the quality of life a person with breast cancer may have.

I shaved under my arms because theres no way Im going six weeks without doing it and Im using regular deodorant on my right side. Im such a rebel. Throughout the process, Grothause said one thing has kept her going knowledge. I have encountered a few medical professionals during my walk down the pink road who said, Trust me, Im trained and know what Im doing. For me, thats not good enough. I want to know why. I want to know what my options are before I agree with their decisions. Its my body and my cancer and I will

Overweight girls less likely to develop breast cancer as adults, says study
(MS) Swedish researchers have determined women who were heavyset as youngsters have a lower risk for breast cancer than others. According to Dr. Jingmei Li of the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, a females body weight throughout her life plays different roles in her risk to develop breast cancer. Although being overweight as an infant or an adult may increase the risk, during the window of time when a female is six or seven years of age, being heavier can have an advantage. Dr. Li and her researchers studied 2,818 Swedish women with breast cancer and 3,111 women without the disease. The women were shown a series of nine figure outlines and asked to choose one that best represented their body size at age seven. The findings were that women who had larger bodies during childhood were 27 percent less likely to have breast cancer than women who were leaner as seven-year-olds. Researchers also determined that being heavier as a girl protected women against all tumor types the researchers studied. The protective effect was even stronger for tumors that didnt carry estrogen receptors; larger childhood body size reduced the risk of these tumors by 60 percent, while it reduced the risk of estrogen-receptor positive tumors by 20 percent. The reason behind the reduced risk could be due to higher levels of estrogen in the bodies of heavier girls

Should a person be diagnosed with breast cancer, there are a number of things he or she can do to improve the support network. Spend considerable time talking and sharing moments with your spouse and children. Surround yourself with positive minded people. Connect with breast cancer survivors through a local organization in the community or online. Participate in events designed to raise money and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. Accept help and support from others when it is needed. Consider psychological counseling if an added boost is needed. Share your experiences with others who may be in similar situations. Volunteer your time doing something that has nothing to do with the disease, like a club or activity.


have the final say, she said. Knowledge is power. Im not a trained medical professional but I want to know all I can before I put my life in their hands. She now carries around a cancer satchel with all her information, treatment schedule, test results and other literature. When she has a question, the answer is written down and filed away for future reference. Grothause said a lot of her power over her cancer lies in that satchel. She will take her final treatment on Tuesday and then follow up with the doctor and plans to have regular mammograms. No matter how normal things will seem later, Grothause said her life has changed forever. Im still trying to find the

new normal for me. My life will never be the same and thats besides the fact that I have an ugly scar on the left side of my breast that is puckered like a prune, she said. I keep thinking I dont have time for this cancer stuff treatments, bills. I want my energy and my life back. This is only the second-hardest thing Ive faced in my life. When my husband died from a sudden heart attack 13 years ago, I was frozen in time for a couple of years. I couldnt go forward and I couldnt go back. Now my kids are grown and can get along without me, if need be. So, the rest of my story is up to me to write. If she had waited any longer to get a mammogram, Grothause said that story might never have been written.

during key moments of mammary development in youth. These estrogen levels may help protect the breasts later on in life. Parents should not go to extreme lengths to increase the weight of girls around the age of seven. Being overweight carries with it its own health risks. There is definitely no reason for overfeeding of the kids to get them to reach a particular body size, says Dr. Li. Being overweight as a child does not eliminate the chances of getting breast cancer. Healthy eating, routine self-breast examinations, annual mammography, and physicals with a doctor are advised steps to help women remain healthy.

sumption increases a mans risk for breast cancer. Thats likely because of alcohols effect on the liver, which plays a role in sex hormone metabolism. Men who abuse alcohol are much more likely to develop cirrhosis, and men who have cirrhosis commonly have higher estrogen levels because the liver is less capable of controlling hormonal activity. Cause of male breast cancer The aforementioned risk factors can increase a mans risk of developing breast cancer. However, the cause of


most breast cancers in men remains unknown. Male breast cancer prevention Preventing male breast cancer can be difficult because there is no known cause. However, men who maintain a healthy weight and a healthy lifestyle are less likely to develop the disease. Maintaining an ideal body and restricting alcohol consumption are two steps all men should take to prevent breast cancer and other diseases as well. Self-examination can also play a role in preventing male breast cancer. Men should

never ignore a breast lump, as, similar to female breast cancer, male breast cancer can manifest itself in a lump on a mans breast. Men are often diagnosed with breast cancer much later than women, which could very well be because men are less likely to look for breast cancer than women. Should anything suspicious appear, men should report it to their physician immediately, as early detection improves the chances that male breast cancer can be treated successfully. Men can find more information about male breast cancer at

been able to take advantage of the technology, especially those with high risk factors. The trends over the past five to seven years have been that we are finding the cancer at earlier stages. That allows us to have a higher cure rate since it is earlier in the course of the cancer. But even in the later stages, new treatments are increasing survival. With all the strides being made in the treatment arena, the prevention of cancer ever occurring is the ultimate goal. Rhoades said the biggest area of preventative research have happened when looking at high risk patients. Those include women with long family histories of breast cancer and other high risk factors, including genetic connections. General treatments at this time include using hormonal therapies. We know that one of the things about breast cancer is that it is stimulated by estrogen, Rhoades said. The higher a womans estrogen exposure throughout her lifetime, the more likely she will develop breast cancer. So, in high risk patients, anti-estrogen therapy is being used as a preventative measure. That is definitely being shown to work. He went on to say the hormonal therapies are being used in patients who have never had breast cancer previously but have the high risk factors. That flies exactly in a 180-degree turn from post-menopausal treatments that formerly called

for giving women estrogen. Many doctors now believe women should not be given those estrogen treatments because the risk is too high for developing other medical problems like breast cancer. With all the advancements in the field of oncology devoted to breast cancer, Rhoades said the future is looking better every day for woman who are diagnosed

with the disease. There are patients today who are living full, normal lives that even just ten years ago would never have survived, he said. They are having babies, they are enjoying their kids a normal life in the midst of having breast cancer. It is very rewarding and having the opportunity to hit a home run is always more fun rather than just putting off the disease.

cent of all deaths to breast cancer happening in the same age group. At the same time, women in the 20-24 group had the lowest rate of occurrence, 1.4 cases per 100,000 women. The median age for breast cancer diagnosis was 61 years of age, meaning that half of the cases were older and half younger during the same time period. African-American women have a higher rate of breast cancer occurrence up to the age of 45 but also have a higher mortality rate from the disease at any age. Beginning at 45, white women have the highest rate of diagnosis while all other racial and ethnic groups have lower rates of occurrence. In-depth statistical studies of breast cancer began in earnest in 1975 with the first of the population-based surveys. Since that time, five distinct eras have separated from each other: From 1975 to 1980, there was no essential change in the rate of breast cancer occurrence. From 1980 to 1987, the rate of breast cancer diagnosis increased an average of four percent per year. From 1987 to 1994, the rate of occurrence flattened to zero again. From 1994 to 1999, the rate increased by 1.6 percent per year. From 1999 to 2006, the rates decreased by two percent per year. The American Cancer Society pointed out the rate changes have a host of outside factors involved. The decision of many women to delay childbearing and/or decrease the number of children they have, both attributable factors to the rate of occurrence, may have led to some of the decrease. The big increases from 1980 to 1987 may have been due in large part to the increase in mammography screening, leading to the detection of tumors too small to be found in a physical exam. This is supported by the increase in detection of smaller tumors during this time period while the rate of larger tumors decreased significantly, dropping by 27 percent.

Despite the advances in early detection and the message of the importance of examinations, the number of cases and deaths due to breast cancer in the U.S. are still staggering. In 2009, 40,170 women died from breast cancer. Of those, 37,350 were 45 years-old or older. The vast majority of that number, 61.5 percent, were older than 65 years of age. While the rate of death from breast cancer has decreased overall since 1975, since 1989 it has fallen much faster among white women than African-Americans. In the same year, a total of 254,650 cases were diagnosed. A little less than a third, 62,280, were considered in situ while 192,370 were diagnosed as invasive. Again, age played a key role in the occurrence rate as only about ten percent, 25,100, involved women under the age of 45. Unfortunately, at this time an all-inclusive program or drug has not been found to prevent breast cancer. However, there are several factors that women can pay attention to in order to reduce the chances of a breast cancer occurrence. Avoid obesity - Women

who gain 55 pounds or more after the age of 18 had a 50 percent greater chance of breast cancer later in life. Exercise - Women who exercise vigorously for 45 to 60 minutes at least five days a week show less of a likelihood of having breast cancer. However, recent studies also show that even moderate exercise helps in this regard. Alcohol - Some studies have shown that women who drink the equivalent of at least two drinks per day may increase the chance of breast cancer by 21 percent. Tobacco - Although smoking has been proved to other types of cancer, there has been no conclusive link established to breast cancer at this point. Menopausal hormones The use of estrogen and progestin has been shown to increase the chances of breast cancer, especially late-stage diagnosis because the hormones have the side effect of increasing breast tissue density, reducing the effectiveness of mammograms.

The Saturday night neighborhood gathering was winding down. Too many hamburgers and too much potato salad had weighed down the stragglers in chairs on the patio. The citronella torches were burning, and the condensation on the beer cans made little wet rings on the outdoor furniture. Things were going smoothly until Irene asked if anyone had seen The Help. No, Im dying to go, Melanie said. I loved the book. Ellen and Trish agreed. They couldnt wait to see if Minny, Aibileen, Hilly and Skeeter were exactly as they had pictured them. Lets go Tuesday night, Irene said. Yes, lets all go, three or four women said at once. None of the husbands made a sound. Randy suddenly asked Irenes husband, Sal, how he liked his new four-wheeler. He purposely used his outside voice. I really havent had a chance to take it out and put it through its paces, Sal said. I was planning to go out Tuesday night. Randy allowed as how hed like to see that. Wednesday night, then, Irene said. The women all agreed that was good for them. All the men sadly shook their heads. It was a shame, theyd love to, but not on Wednesday, and, by the way, Thursday and Friday were bad for them, too. Why dont you girls all just go by yourselves? Sal said.

The Herald 11

Tomorrows Horoscope
SATURDAY, OCT. 15, 2011 There is a good chance that events will cause you to do more traveling than normal in the near future. These multiple trips arent likely to be of long duration, but chances are theyll be fun and adventurous, as well as profitable. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Rely on your first impressions, because by being such a quick thinker, your immediate ideas will likely be the best. Companions will appreciate what you have to say. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You probably wont have to give much thought as to how you should go about accomplishing something new or different, because your initial plan is likely to be the best one, anyway. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Dont reject going out with the gang tonight, because there is a strong probability you could meet a fascinating new group of people and be introduced to someone wholl interest you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your intuition could be trying to put you on the track of some wonderful self-improvements, so pay heed to any flashes of inspiration you might get. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Attitude is always extremely important in our lives, but more so when it comes to dealing with something complex and distasteful. Success comes from believing you can handle the rough stuff. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Dont think in petty terms at this time, because Lady Luck continues to hover over you, especially where your financial and commercial interests are concerned. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It pays to be a good listener because, not only will you pick up some interesting information, you should be able to turn it to your advantage as well. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Be doubly alert and ready to spring into action when it comes to any financial tips you get. One or more unusual opportunities could be dumped right in your lap. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Whether youre involved in a large or small group of people who may or may not be familiar to you, they will like what you have to say and will look to you to handle whatever is at hand. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Dont waste your time conferring with those who are extremely steeped in tradition; you need something fresh in your life. Share your time with fun, resourceful friends. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Because your instincts are particularly astute, if you put your mind to it, you could conceive an activity that could turn out to be profitable for everybody involved. Give it a try. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone who is loaded with experience and knowledge will come to your aid and teach you how to accomplish something that youve previously been unable to do.

Salon suspects ex-wife claimed abuse, instability

By AMY TAXIN and JOHN ROGERS Associated Press SEAL BEACH, Calif. Scott Dekraais neighbors considered him one of the friendliest guys on the block, a man who invited them over for pool parties and played catch with his son in his yard. Friends of his ex-wife, though, say she lived in fear of the man now accused of gunning down her and seven other people at the hair salon where she worked. He suffered post-traumatic stress disorder from a 2007 tugboat accident that mangled his leg and left a colleague dead. His marriage to Michelle Fournier was falling apart even before that, and the court battle over their 8-year-old son was still raging Wednesday, when Dekraai is accused of spraying the Salon Meritage with gunfire. Among those killed was Fournier, his exwife. The salons popular owner, Randy Fannin, also died. Fourniers boyfriend, Michael Warzybok, said that at a court hearing Tuesday a judge had pressed Dekraai to explain why he needed more time with his son than his current custody arrangement called for. Warzybok said a courtappointed psychologist had found the roughly 50-50 arrangement was working. All of a sudden, he didnt get his way, said Warzybok, who was interviewed by the psychologist along with Fourniers co-workers. Dekraai had also asked Fournier to meet for coffee Wednesday, the day of the shootings, but she turned him down. Fournier had indicated to friends and in court documents that she was afraid of her ex-husband. Her friend Sharyn White said that just weeks before the killings, she told her that Dekraai had stopped by the salon and threatened to kill her and others. White, who is also Dekraais step-aunt, said Fournier told her she took the threat seriously though others in the salon laughed it off. She said Fournier also had told her that when they were still married Dekraai had once held a gun to her head. There is no sign that Fournier sought a restraining order against her ex-husband, though other friends agree she was afraid. As recently as a month ago, she told me how scared she was and I offered to hire her bodyguards, said Tim Terbush, a longtime friend. He said she turned him down because she feared that would only make Dekraai more angry. Six women and two men were killed in the shooting in the quaint seaside town of Seal Beach, which had had only one homicide in the previous four years. A wounded woman was hospitalized in critical condition, although police Sgt. Steve Bowles said Thursday she was showing signs of improvement. Police released the names of the dead Thursday evening, shortly before about 300 people gathered for a prayer service near the salon to honor their memory. The Rev. Peggy Price of the Center for Spiritual Living, addressed the mourners. Recognize that life is precious. Dont waste a moment of it, Price said. Right in this place, just as yesterday right across the street was the presence of God ... and that presence of God is still here. It is in our sadness it is in our sorrow and it is in our anger, she said. The prayer service included time for residents to voice their thoughts and ended with people receiving roses as they exited the service. It was followed by a candlelight vigil. Officers who arrived within minutes of reports of shots fired encountered a horrific scene, with bodies of victims scattered throughout the salon and a man bleeding in the parking lot outside. Ron Sesler, working the lunch rush at his restaurant next door, said he thought the rapid pop, pop, pop he heard was a jackhammer until a terrified woman ran in screaming, Theyre shooting people. He said the man killed outside was a regular at the restaurant who just happened to park next to the gunman as he was running back to his truck. If he was late, the guy would have driven away. If he was early, he would have been in here, Sesler said. Fourniers brother, Butch Fournier, said he saw footage of the salon on TV and immediately sensed the horror. The worst part about it was seeing the news and seeing the awning and knowing exactly what happened without even hearing a word, he said. Police arrested Dekraai, 41, about a half-mile from the scene. He put up no resistance and was being held without bail Thursday. Dekraai denied an Associated Press request for a jail-

5 children, deputy die when van crashes into truck

By P. SOLOMON BANDA Associated Press KIT CARSON, Colo. A van driven by a sheriffs deputy who ran a group home for adopted and foster children collided with an empty cattle trailer on Thursday in a highway construction zone, killing him and five children and injuring seven other children. Howard Mitchell, 57, was taking 12 of the children from the home in Kit Carson to Eads at the time of the crash around 7:30 a.m., troopers said. The school district in Eads, about 15 miles away, said on its website that the Mitchell family had close ties to the community of about 600 people. The children who died ranged in age from 4 to 17 and lived in the home for adopted and foster children, said Kiowa County Sheriffs office spokesman Chris Sorensen. Seven other children in the van were hospitalized. The truck driver, of Cheyenne, Wyo., was treated at a hospital and released. A photo provided by the State Patrol showed the front of the van crumpled into the rear of a large livestock trailer. There was about 26 feet of skid marks on the patch of U.S. 287 leading to the collision, Trooper T.A. Ortiz said. The accident happened on a stretch of highway south of Kit Carson that has been under repair for the past month. One lane was closed, and the collision occurred at the back of a line of traffic about 1,000 feet long, said Stacey Stegman, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Transportation. Sorensen said the normal speed limit on the highway is 65 miles per hour, but speeds were reduced because of the construction zone. Meteorologists said weather conditions in the area at the time were clear, no wind and temperatures in the low 30s. In Kit Carson, where Mitchell ran the Mitchell House Childrens Home, neighbors said they were devastated. The family are good people with good hearts, said By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer

house interview. Throughout Seal Beach and the nearby city of Huntington Beach, where Dekraai lived, his bitter custody battle with Fournier was common knowledge among friends of both. It was a very difficult battle, said Jo Cornhall, who lives across the street from Dekraai. Still, neighbors were stunned that the friendly man who held pool parties in his backyard and doted on his son might be responsible for what police said was the worst tragedy in the citys 96-year history. Im like, No, not this neighbor, no way. Hes the nicest guy ever, said Stephanie Malchow, who lives next door. In court documents filed in February, Dekraai said he had 56 percent custody of his son and his ex-wife had 44 percent. He wanted the court to grant him final decision making authority when it came to matters involving their sons education and his medical and psychological treatment. In court documents filed in May, Fournier described her ex-husband as almost manic when it came to controlling their son. She said Dekraai is a diagnosed bipolar individual who has problems with his own medication and his reaction to same, and he certainly shouldnt be allowed to have unilateral and unfettered control of any and all medical and psychological aspects of our sons life. She said then that giving Dekraai such authority would be akin to a situation where the inmates are running the asylum.

NEW YORK The cleanup of a private park in lower Manhattan where protesters have been camped out for a month was postponed early today, sending cheers up from a crowd that had feared the effort was merely a pretext to evict them. Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway said the park owners, Brookfield Office Properties, had put off the cleaning. Supporters of the protesters had started streaming into the park in the morning darkness before the planned cleaning, forming a crowd of several hundred chanting people. Ill believe it when were able to stay here, said protester Peter Hogness, 56, a union employee from Brooklyn. One thing we have learned from this is that we need to rely on ourselves and not on promises from elected officials. But protester Nick Gulotta, 23, was jubilant. He originally held up a sign referring to Mayor Michael Bloomberg that said: Bloomberg Dont Evict Occupy Wall Street. People cheered and clapped him on the back when he scratched out the dont and replaced it with didnt. It shows when people work together, you really can make a difference and make justice happen, Gulotta said. A confrontation between police and protesters, who had vowed to stay put through civil disobedience, had been feared. Boisterous cheers floated up from the crowds as the announcement of the postponement circulated, and protesters began polling each other on whether to make an immediate march to Wall Street, a few blocks away. Late last night, we received notice from the owners of Zuccotti Park Brookfield Properties that they are postponing their scheduled cleaning of the park, and for the time being withdrawing their request from earlier in the week for police assistance during their cleaning operation, the deputy mayors statement said. In a last-ditch bid to stay, protesters had mopped and picked up garbage. While moving out mattresses and camping supplies, organizers were mixed on how they would respond when police arrived. Many protesters said the only way they would leave is by force. Organizers sent out a mass email Thursday asking supporters to defend the occupation from eviction. Nicole Carty, a 23-year-old from Atlanta, had hoped the groups cleaning effort would stave off any confrontation. It wasnt clear early today whether that had anything to do with the companys decision to postpone the cleanup. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) A Florida man says in a TV interview broadcast Thursday that he hacked into the email accounts of actress Scarlett Johansson and other celebrities and downloaded their private information, which led to nude photos of Johansson and other information appearing on the Internet. Christopher Chaney told Jacksonvilles WTEV that he plans to plead guilty after he goes to Los Angeles to face federal charges. He is scheduled to be in a Jacksonville court today to be transferred to California. He is charged with 26 counts of identity theft, unauthorized access to a protected computer and wiretapping. If convicted, he faces up to 121 years in prison. There were more than 50 victims in the case, including Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera and actress Renee Olstead, authorities said. Others were identified only by initials and investigators wouldnt disclose if they were famous, but said victims named in the indictment agreed to have their identities made public. In the televised interview, Chaney, 35, said he began celebrity hacking out of curiosity and it quickly became addictive, seeing the behind-the-scenes of whats going on with the people you see on the big screen. He said he was almost relieved when the FBI seized his computers months ago. He insisted that he never intended to blackmail anyone and that he had no part in posting the photos. Someone contacted me wanting the pictures, said Chaney, who is free on $10,000 bond. I dont even know who it was. No, I didnt give that person any pictures. I never wanted to sell or release any images. He said he wanted to apologize to celebrities for his actions. I know what I did was probably the worst invasion of privacy someone could experience. Im not trying to escape what I did. It was wrong. And I have to just face that and go forward, he told the station. Attempts by The Associated Press to reach Chaney failed Thursday. A note on his front window told reporters that he would only talk to WTEV. I do not resent this or blame the media for trying to get the hot story. I deserve this. My family and neighbors do not, he wrote. Neighbor Keishay Hayes said Chaney was reclusive and he only saw him on Wednesdays when he took the garbage to the street and when he walked his small dog. His friend Destiny Gordon said that when she saw the FBI and Jacksonville Sheriffs Office swarm the house a few months ago, she thought someone had died. Chaney hacked Google, Apple and Yahoo email accounts beginning last November and through February, then hijacked the forwarding feature so that a copy of every email received was sent, virtually instantaneously, to an email account he controlled, according to an indictment handed up Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Los Angeles. He allegedly used the hacker names trainreqsuckswhat, anonygrrl and jaxjaguars911, and also used the victims identities to illegally access and control computers. Chaney is accused of damaging email servers that caused losses of at least $5,000 per instance.

Experts offer vitamin advice Man convicted in 2007 deaths

JOHN CHRISTOFFERSEN Associated Press Two studies this week raised gnawing worries about the safety of vitamin supplements and a host of questions. Should anyone be taking them? Which ones are most risky? And if you do take them, how can you pick the safest ones? Vitamins have long had a health halo. Many people think theyre good for you and at worst might simply be unnecessary. The industry calls them an insurance policy against bad eating. But our foods are increasingly pumped full of them already. Even junk foods and drinks often are fortified with nutrients to give them a healthier profile, so the risk is rising that were getting too much. Add a supplement and you may exceed the upper limit. Were finding out theyre not as harmless as the industry might have us believe, said David Schardt, a nutritionist at the consumer group Center for Science in the Public Interest. This week, a study of nearly 40,000 older women found a slightly higher risk of death among those taking dietary supplements, including multivitamins, folic acid, iron and copper. It was just an observational study, though, not a rigorous test. Another study found that men taking high doses of vitamin E 400 units a day for five years had a slightly increased risk of prostate cancer. As many as one-third of Americans take vitamins and nearly half of people 50 and older take multivitamins, surveys suggest. Americans spent $9.6 billion on vitamins last year, up from $7.2 billion in 2005, according to the Nutrition Business Journal. Multivitamins top the list, at nearly $5 billion in sales. Yet there is no clear evidence that multivitamins lower the risk of cancer, heart disease or any other chronic health problems. No government agency recommends them regardless of the quality of a persons diet, says a fact sheet from the federal Office of Dietary Supplements. And vitamins arent required to undergo the strict testing required of U.S.-approved prescription medicines. Some fads, such as the antioxidant craze over vitamins A and E and beta-carotene, backfired when studies found more health risk, not less. And studies that find more disease in people with too little of a certain vitamin can be misleading: Correcting a deficiency so you have the right daily amount is different from supplementing beyond recommended levels. The best way to get vitamins is to eat foods that naturally contain them, said Jody Engel, a nutritionist with Office of Dietary Supplements. Foods provide more than just vitamins and minerals, such as fiber and other ingredients that may have positive health effects. Schardt adds: Its virtually impossible to overdose on the nutrients in food. Some folks may need more of certain nutrients and should talk with their doctors about supplements: Postmenopausal women regarding calcium and vitamin D to protect bones. Women planning on pregnancy regarding folate, or folic acid, to prevent birth defects. People over age 50 and vegans who may need vitamin B12. As we get older, a number of us no longer produce enough acid in the stomach to extract the B12 in food, Schardt explained. Pregnant women, who may need extra iron. Breastfed infants and possibly other infants concerning vitamin D. Vitamin D is a nutrient many of us may need to supplement. Last fall, the Institute of Medicine, a panel of scientists who advise the government, raised the recommended amount but also warned against overdoing it. People ages 1 to 70 should get 600 international units a day, older folks 800 units. If you do need a supplement, beware: Quality varies., a company that tests supplements and publishes ratings for subscribers, has found a high rate of problems in the 3,000 products it has tested since 1999.

Annette Weber, manager of the Trading Post restaurant next door to the group home. Mitchell, a Cheyenne County sheriffs deputy, was a quiet man who spoke little but was respected by the children in his care, Weber said. He just had a way with kids, she said. Some of the children from the home worked at the restaurant, she added. They always came to work, and they always did a good job and they were always more than happy to help us, Weber said. Kay Piskorski, mother of the Trading Posts owner, said some of the children would come to the restaurant to buy pie for Mitchell and his wife. Good kids, all of them, she said. Things arent going to be the same. Were going to miss them. Its unbelievable. Sorensen identified the children who died as Austyn Ackinson, 11; Tony Mitchell; Tayla Mitchell, 10; Andy Dawson, 13, and Jeremy Franks, 17. Weber said Mitchell had adopted Tony and Tayla. Tony Mitchell was in the fourth grade, Superintendent Glenn Smith said. Smith described Tony and Tayla as absolutely full of energy, and Andy was a dynamic kid who loved to play sports. Jeremy was ornery but respectful. In September, after a football team member lost his mother, Jeremy came up with the idea to make a card from the community, Smith said. The ages of the hospitalized children were 3, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 17, officials said. The 14-year-old, who suffered minor injuries, was the only one in the van wearing a seat belt, although the 3-year-old was properly restrained in a child seat, troopers said. Kit Carson is about 130 miles southeast of Denver. U.S. 287, a mostly two-lane highway, cuts across the sparsely populated eastern plains of Colorado and is popular with truckers on north-south trips through the state. In Cheyenne Wells, people left flowers and photos at a makeshift memorial near the fire station.

Man admits hacking stars emails

NEW HAVEN, Conn. A Connecticut jury that convicted a paroled burglar Thursday of murdering a woman and her two daughters during a gruesome 2007 home invasion will now decide whether he should be put to death for a crime so unsettling it bolstered efforts to keep the death penalty in the state. Joshua Komisarjevsky (koh-mih-sar-JEV-skee), whose accomplice is already on death row, was convicted of all 17 charges he faced, including capital felony killing, kidnapping, arson and sexual assault. During the crime in an affluent suburb, family members were tied up, molested, doused in gasoline and left to die in a fire. The same jury will now decide whether Komnisarjevsky should get life in prison or the death penalty. The penalty phase starts Oct. 24 and could last up to two months. Connecticuts death penalty has only been implemented once in the past 51 years, when serial killer Michael Ross was executed in 2005. One of Komisarjevskys attorneys, Walter Bansley III, said they have confidence in the jury system as they shift their attention to sparing their client from the death penalty. We have no doubt the jury will view the evidence with compassion and mercy, he said. Komisarjevsky was sexually abused as a child and suffered multiple concussions and later turned to drugs, according to defense lawyers. That history will be a focus of defense efforts to convince the jury to spare the 31-year-old mans life. After the verdict was read Thursday, Komidsarjevsky sat back in his chair, rocked slightly back and forth and glanced briefly at the jury. He yawned as he was led out of the courtroom.
