New Lions Club to meet April 17

The public is invited to attend a presentation and open discussion of the Strategic Plan to Restore the Miami-Erie Canal in the Greater Delphos, Ohio Area at 7 p.m. on April 29 at the Delphos Municipal Building. The initial plan was developed in 2006 by a committee made up of a diverse group of interested and concerned citizens under the auspices of the Delphos Canal Commission and MECCA. The plan addressed trails, green space, open public areas, education, economic development, history, aesthetics, water flow, signage and other issues that will help shape the future of this historic asset. This is not only an opportunity for the public to voice concerns about the plan but is also the civic duty of each resident to exercise their rights as stewards of the canal, MECCA Executive Director Neal Brady said. Were looking for a target audience to attend the meeting and provide input to finalize the updated plan.

Huysman earns Honorary Chapter FFA Degree

Apollo levy on May ballot

By Leslie Noia DHI Correspondent
Apollo Career Center has an item on the ballot for the upcoming May 7 Primary Election with a bond issue for enlarging, improving and rebuilding structures, including the maintenance of classroom facilities, at a rate not exceeding 0.19 mill for each one dollar of valuation. The levy will cost $2.56 per month per $100,000 assessed home value and if passed, Apollo will receive $23 million in matching funds from the state of Ohio. The income will be used to improve, expand and renovate buildings and facilities to acquire career-technical equipment and upgrade the school site to meet the needs of 21st-century learning. The current Apollo Career Center is 36 years-old and has plumbing, heating and electrical issues. In recent years, space and technology upgrades have also become critical to the career center. Ohio School Facilities Commission funds have now been made available and the administration believes this is the time to take advantage of this opportunity. Apollo plans to keep all

Delphos FFA member Caitlin Landwehr presents St. Johns High School Principal Don Huysman with the Honorary Chapter FFA degree at the 63rd annual FFA Banquet Sunday. Farmers, school superintendents, principals, members of boards of education, chapter advisors, teachers, staff members in agricultural education, business people, and others who are helping to advance agricultural education and the FFA, and who have rendered outstanding service may be elected to honorary membership by a majority vote of the members present at any regular meeting or convention. Huysman is a 41-year veteran of education and will be retiring after this school year. This was a tribute to him, Scott R. Elwer, agriculture Education instructor/FFA advisor of Delphos City Schools said. Huysman has always been a supporter of our program in Delphos and works hand in hand to benefit both school communities and my FFA members. He has always been all about the kids, has a true passion for education and will truly be missed by the Delphos community. Our organization felt that because of his support, compassion, and true heart behind education and the support of the program he was overly deserving of this award at our banquet. (Submitted photo)

Homeowners should be patient when planting grass seed

BY STEPHANIE GROVES sgroves@delphosherald.com Homeowners rejoice! Its spring, the temperatures are up, the sun is shining and its time to roll up shirt sleeves and get to work. Not so fast, says Ohio State Extension Education Director Dr. Curtis Young. Before sowing any seeds, the soil temperature should be around 50 degrees at a minimum, Young stated. From germination to producing fibrous root systems, the young seedlings are very temperature susceptible. Young recommends assessing whether the lawn really needs re-seeding, since there has not been much grass growing to this point. Spring is the second-best time to plant grass, Young contended. Unfortunately, when planting at this time, seeds fragile root systems are challenged for survival. If seeding bare areas in the lawn, these are some steps to take to ensure success. First, remove all trash and weeds. If using

Nick Verhoff, superintendent at Columbus Grove, explained the benefits Apollo has to offer. The Apollo bond issue on the ballot is critical to Columbus Grove Local Schools and its students. Apollo provides valuable training in numerous areas of need in Ohios job market. Columbus Grove Schools has been a long-time partner school of Apollo and over 19 percent of Columbus Grove High Schools junior class attends Apollo. Recent studies show that one year after graduating from an Apollo program, over 73 percent of students who attended are actively employed or attending college. Apollo plays a critical role helping Columbus Grove Local Schools provide a comprehensive educational program for all our communitys young people. This issue, See APOLLO, page 3

a herbicide like Roundup to kill weeds in the bare area, give it time to work and at least 10 days to leech out of the soil before planting any seed. The next step is to perform the soil prep; smooth the bumps and lumps out of the soil by using a hard rake. Proper seed selection is important and can be done now. Make note of the location where the seed will be used, for example, high traffic, sunny, or shady areas. In sunny locations, Kentucky Bluegrass seed performs well and develops a fine turf fescue which normally has Rye that pops up quickly. Go to a dedicated lawn and garden store and talk with a specialist to purchase blended or select species of seed, Dr. Young insisted. Cheap seed or seed that is not desirable will not yield the results a home owner is anticipating. When seeding the bare area, apply grass seed to the top and cover with a light coat of See GRASS, page 3

Ohio House revises Wolfe Kasich Medicaid, tax proposals

BY JULIE CARR SMYTH and ANN SANNER COLUMBUS (AP) Income tax cuts are in. Medicaid expansion is out. More money for schools is in. A sales tax on services is out. Those are among dozens of judgment calls contained in an Ohio House rewrite of the two-year state budget introduced Tuesday. The Republican-led chambers answer to GOP Gov. John Kasichs spending blueprint spends about $2 billion less while retaining a 7 percent permanent incometax reduction statewide and removing tax increases on professional services and drilling. Kasich has proposed a two-year budget plan of about $63.2 billion, beginning July 1. The Houses $1.5 billion income-tax reduction over two years is less than the 20 percent Kasich had originally proposed, and excludes the governors proposed smallbusiness tax cut. We just couldnt get that done in this time frame and be comfortable with it, said House Finance Chairman Ron Amstutz, who described a host of Kasich proposals that have been removed from the bill for lack of time to explore them. The House dropped the Kasichs plans to extend Medicaid coverage to thousands more low-income Ohioans under President Barack Obamas federal health care overhaul. Roughly 366,000 Ohio residents would be eligible for health coverage under the Medicaid expansion beginning in 2014. The state would see $13 billion from the federal government over the next seven years to cover those newly eligible. Instead, representatives added $100 million over the two-year period to mental health and addiction services. Asked whether the amount was sufficient to provide care to those who needed it, Amstutz said, We dont know the answer to that. The House bill directs other government funds to the needy, Amstutz said, including $150 million more for job services and readiness and $6 million more for job co-ops and internships. A provision added to Tuesdays bill also would effectively de-fund Planned Parenthood. Abortion rights groups fought the same move last session and vowed to work to defeat it again. The House will hold hearings on the new version this week, and more changes could come before lawmakers vote on the bill. The Senate then would take up the measure. On education, the House bill increases state aid school districts get for each student. Kasichs education budget proposed spending $15.1 billion on K-12 education over the next two years, boosting funds to districts that are lagging behind in property values and household incomes. The proposal prompted an outcry by superintendents who said it delivered big increases to some wealthy districts and no new dollars to some poor ones. The House plan caps district funding increases to 6 percent a year and adds new money to meet a state mandate that students must know how to read before leaving third grade. Tweaks to Kasichs formula including an increase in per-pupil funding from roughly $5,000 to $5,700 distribute the money more fairly across the state, Amstutz said. Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols said the governor remains committed to advancing his proposals and is encouraged by the progress so far.

school district concern and Wolfe said he might have some ideas about that as well. We have to be fiscally responsible and we need to create ways to make money, he began. We have a lot of businesses in the area and windmills are very popular right now, so we have some things to research. The superintendent will also need to work with both local school systems. I think we have a great opportunity to make both our schools even more tremendously successful than they already are, Wolfe said. We can share services, personnel and even buildings. We need to collaborate and all be on the same page. In other business, the board: Accepted the resignation of Nicole Tobe as cheerleading advisor; Issues supplemental contracts for the 2013-14 school year to: Larry Bub Lindeman, head football coach; Ben Rahrig, Jeff Stant and Damon Ulm, varsity football assistants; Jon Kroeger, junior high head football coach; Chad Brinkman, varsity golf; Josiah Stober, varsity soccer

Ohio rape indictment identifies DNA, not suspect

CLEVELAND (AP) A grand jury has returned a rape indictment against an unknown individual based on DNA genetic evidence in two Cleveland attacks nearly 20 years ago. The Cuyahoga County grand jury returned the sixcount indictment last week on charges of raping and kidnapping a 13-year-old girl on April 21, 1993, and a 37-yearold woman on June 15, 1996. The older female has since died. The indictment identifies the defendant in the attacks as John Doe (hash)1, unknown male followed by numerical sequences reflecting the attackers DNA. According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, the indictment stops the clock on the 20-year statute of limitations for prosecuting. The county issued an arrest warrant against the mans DNA profile in case hes arrested and his DNA is collected. In New York, prosecutors reviewed hundreds of rape cases and indicted suspects in 2003 based on DNA alone. Cuyahoga County Assistant Prosecutor Brian McDonough said DNA technology allows the justice system to hold rapists accountable. Twenty years later, some memories may fade, but DNA profiles do not, he said. Cleveland police and prosecutors recently began reinvestigating the cases after evidence collected from the victims was tested as part an initiative mounted by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. The review yielded DNA linking both cases to an unidentified DNA profile. Police agencies across

COLUMBUS (AP) Ohio is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters to launch a new initiative to help foster children who age out of the system. Ohio Job and Family Services and the nonprofit announced the project on Wednesday to help young adults from the foster-care system make a smoother transition to adulthood and independent living. The agency said the project called Connecting the Dots from Foster Care to Employment and Independent Living will break down silos. It hopes to bring together foster care caseworkers, career center staff, Big Brothers Big Sisters mentors and Ohio employers to help teens prepare for work, vocational training or college. The agency says as many as 1,300 young people in Ohio age out of foster care each year.

soil. Use an application of Starter Fertilizer high in nitrogen on all parts of the lawn including the newly planted seed. There are a sequence of numbers listed on the package, which are normally shown in this format (24-254). This example is a Scotts Turf Builder Starter analysis. The analysis is located in the middle or at the bottom of fertilizer package and represents the percentages of the three major nutrients plants need; nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium N, P and K for short. The fertilizer gets all parts of the grass to grow quickly, especially their root systems, Young explained. After sewing and fertilizing, straw can be used to hold in moisture and hide seed from birds who consume it.

Take caution when using the stalks to cover the seeded area and do not apply too thick, just lightly cover the planted seed. Also, weed seeds may end up germinating from the straw, rather than the grass seedlings. Frequent, light watering keeps grass seed moist, which is necessary for germination, according to Ohio State University Extension. There are times throughout the spring season when frequent rainstorms can help keep grass seed damp, which varies on location and micro-climate. The most important thing is to check the soil of the new

The best time to plant seed is in the late summer and fall when there is plenty of warm weather for the new grass to grow and mature before winter. He cautions that young grass is tender for months before it can survive on its own. Young advises against mowing the new grass until the next growing season. Ideally, lawns maintained at a minimal height of 2 1/2 to 3 tall perform well, Young added.

Family enjoying Spring Break

BY LOVINA EICHER 5 a.m. The alarm goes off. I get up because daughter Elizabeth will leave for her job at the factory soon. She has been working a lot of 10 hour days at the factory. 5:15 a.m. Elizabeths ride is here and she leaves. The children are on spring break and my husband Joe is off work this week. Everyone has been taking advantage of their break and sleeping later than usual. I stay up and read and enjoy the peace and quiet. There are not many quiet moments around here this week once everyone is awake. 6:30 a.m. Joe gets up and I make a pot of coffee for us. Joe goes down to the basement to add coal to the stove. I get sausage out of the freezer to make gravy for breakfast. Daughter Lovina, 8, wants to mix up two batches of mystery biscuits so I help her. 8 a.m. Breakfast is ready consisting of biscuits, sausage gravy, fried eggs, cheese, orange juice and milk. 8:30 a.m. Daughters Susan and Verena leave for Susans babysitting job. Since Verena is off this week she is enjoying helping Susan with the children. Loretta and Lovina wash dishes and sweep the floors. Joe and I mix up 100 pounds of hamburger and sausage to make summer sausage. We use Dad and Moms Canadian summer sausage recipe which calls for 66 pounds of hamburger, 33 pounds of sausage, 5 pounds of white sugar, 4 pounds of salt, 1/3 pound of black pepper, and two ounces of salt petre. Since we couldnt find salt petre we asked a local meat market for another cure to make summer sausage. We are hoping it will work just as well. We will refrigerate and mix daily for 3 days or so and Joe will then smoke it in our smoker. My Dad would always smoke the sausage in a smokehouse he had built. Benjamin, Joseph, and Kevin are hauling out some manure from the barn. 12:15 We eat a lunch of sandwiches and vegetable soup. 12:45 Benjamin, Kevin, and I leave for town. Kevin has a therapy appointment. Benjamin wants to take the cans into the store that him and Joseph collected along the road. The boys collect cans along the roads because here in Michigan they are worth 10 cents apiece. They have made quite a bit of money doing that and it helps keep the roadsides clean. 4 p.m. We arrive home from town. I put the groceries away. Benjamin goes out to help Joe and Joseph fix the fence so the chickens can be turned out. They also do the evening chores. 5 p.m. The 3 girls are home from their jobs. Susan is out raking the yard which she enjoys. Verena and Lovina are making egg salad. The children colored 10 dozen eggs for Easter so this is a good way to use them up. The dandelion greens are not out yet so we cant make dandelion green salad with the leftover eggs 7:30 p.m. We are finally ready to have supper. On the menu are egg salad sandwiches and I made rare beef. Rare beef is steak sliced really thin and then deep fried only a few seconds on each side. If you have your oil really hot and smoking it will not leave your meat rare. It is very tender if fixed right. We put salt and pepper on each side before we deep fry it. 9:30 p.m. Everyone is cleaned up and ready to call it a day. Gods blessings to all. No matter how many different biscuit recipes we try, my family thinks these are the best. They are also easy to make and no rolling out the dough. MYSTERY BISCUITS 2 cups flour 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup mayonnaise 1 cup milk 1 teaspoon sugar Sift flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add remaining ingredients. Mix till smooth and drop by tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet or fill 12 muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake 18 to 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

Lady Archers pummel Jeffcats





DELPHOS Both Jefferson and Antwerp had gotten off to slow starts in the 2013 fast-pitch softball wars, neither having a win yet. Something had to give on a warm yet gusty Tuesday night at Lady Wildcat Field. The visiting Lady Archers used 10 hits, seven errors, seven wild pitches, six free passes, two hit batters and two passed balls to amass a 15-3 5-inning rout. K. Jemison got the win (1-5; 5 IPs. 4 hits, 3 runs, 2 earned, 3 BBs, 7 Ks). Weve got a lot of young girls in there for the first time and were learning as we go. Were learning where we need to be in every situation but when you are a work in progress, you will have mistakes, first-year Jefferson coach Josiah Stober said. At the same time, we have improved from our opening game to today but its going to take time to be where we want to be. The weather this spring didnt allow us to get out on the diamond a lot and you can only do so much inside, so were dealing with that along with everyone else. Same thing offensively; were facing live pitching for the first time for many of the girls and getting comfortable will take time. Antwerp head man Gary Rodenberger is in the same boat. We graduated seven starters from last year and we only had three letterwinners back. We are basically a senior and the rest sophomores and freshmen, he added. Weve got a lot of fresh faces that have to learn how to play varsity softball, so mistakes will be made. Weve been in games but we

always have THAT inning that costs us; we made a mistake or two and it snowballs. We want to be aggressive and we did that today. Plus, we got solid pitching from one of our letterwinners. The Archers (1-5) got on board with two in the first against Jefferson senior Taylor Branham (0-4), 5 innings, 10 hits, 15 runs, 9 earned, 3 Ks). A. Braaten led off with a single and two errors put her at third, from where she scored on a successful suicide squeeze by K. Titus; an error allowed her to be safe. A passed ball and wild pitch put her at third. C. Sweet-Miller walked and kept on going to second. A wild pitch plated Titus for a 2-0 edge. The Lady Wildcats (0-4) got one back in the home half against Archer starter K. Jemison. Hannah Sensibaugh walked to lead it off,

Not a lot went right for the Jefferson softball crew Tuesday night at home versus Antwerp. In the 3rd inning, Alexis Cook slides into third base as the Archer third baseman mishandles the throw but the visitors grabbed a 15-3 5-inning triumph. (Delphos Herald/Tom Morris) 2 cols.

advanced on a wild toss and scored on a 2-out single to center by Branham for a 2-1 deficit. The Archers made it 4-1 in the second with two down. A walk to M. Flint, a steal and a misplayed grounder hit by Braaten scored the first run. Braaten, who was on second, stole third and scored on a passed ball for a 4-1 edge. The visitors made it 7-1 in the third, combining two hits: a 1-out solo shot over the 200-foot mark in left center by A. Sawyer and a 2-run double down the left-field line by O. Tempel (scoring Jemison and D. Bauer) to make it a 6-run game. Jefferson got within 7-3 in the third. Alexis Cook walked, followed by a bloop to left by Sensibaugh. An out later, a misplay on a Fallon Van Dyke grounder loaded the bases. Branham walked to score Cook and

Jasmine McDougall singled to right to score Sensibaugh for a 7-3 scoreboard. However, the hosts left the bases loaded. Antwerp really blew it open with a 5-run fourth frame to make it 12-3. They had four hits, including a 2-run double to center by Sawyer (plating Titus and Sweet-Miller) and a 2-run double by E. Derck (S. Cline and Bauer), as well as two miscues to score those five tallies. Kayla Kill walked to start off the Delphos fourth inning and advanced to second on a Cook ground ball. However, she could get no farther. The Lady Archers put on three more runs in the fifth, this time without an error. They had two walks, a hit batter and three hits, including a run-scoring double to right by Sweet-Miller (Braaten) and a run-producing knock up the gut by Sawyer (SweetMiller), plus a bases-loaded wild pitch that scored Cline for the final run. McDougall singled with two outs in the fifth but couldnt advance as the game ended. Jefferson visits Miller City 5 p.m. tonight. Antwerp hosts Holgate Thursday.

Miller City seemed to be in control through 5 2/3 innings Tuesday night at Wildcat Field in Delphos, leading 4-1. Jefferson, led by this home run by Zach Kimmett, rallied for a 13-run inning and settled for a 14-4 6-inning run-rule victory. (Delphos Herald/Tom Morris)

11th Annual

Bulldogs notch first PCL win of 2013

By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald btzweber@bright.net
OTTOVILLE - Wow! What a difference a week makes in the temperatures at the good old ball park. Last week when most teams opened their season, they found temperatures hovering around the freezing mark and winds gusting at nearly 20-25 mph. One week later, the winds were still there but the mercury in the thermometer was showing nearly 75-80 degrees. So much for the weather report and living in this wonderful state of Ohio. Taking advantage of the warmer weather Tuesday night, the Ottoville Big Green and the Columbus Grove Bulldogs, under the veteran leadership of head coach Cory King, squared off in their annual Putnam County League baseball matchup. The Bulldogs took advantage of some clutch 2-out hitting and an excellent pitching and defensive display on the evening in defeating the Big Green 7-2. For the Big Green, it was their opening PCL game of the year. The Bulldogs played their first PCL game last week, suffering a loss at the hands of the Leipsic Vikings. King knew coming into this year he had a veteran group returning: Offensive production should be the backbone of our 2013 season. With 10 returning lettermen, we have strong leadership and depth at most positions. What we need to work on is consistency each and every at-bat, both offensively and defensively. The pitching staff needs to throw strikes and allow the defense to make plays. Coach King should have been very pleased with his teams performance on the evening, getting a 7-hit, 2-run pitching gem from junior Joshua Verhoff. That was along with a 9-hit outburst, highlighted by a sixth-inning 3-run homer from senior Trey Roney. The Big Green actually jumped out to the early lead in the bottom of the second inning. Sophomore Brandon Boecker led off the inning with a solid base hit and was moved to second when fellow sophomore Joel Beining laid down a perfect bunt. Senior Cory Fischer laced a single to right field, plating Boecker with the first run of the game. The Bulldogs came right back in the top of the third when after Big Green senior starting pitcher Derek Schimmoeller retired the first two batters he faced. Senior Blake Hoffman reached safely on an error by Big Green third basemAn Beining. Getting the third out of the inning has haunted the Big Green all year and this night was no different as Hoffman scored all the way from first after senior Brandon Benroth hit a deep double to center field, tying the game at 1-1. The Bulldogs were not finished as senior Matt Jay sent a pop-up to the middle of the infield that fell harmlessly between the pitchers mound and shortstop, allowing Benroth to score and give his team a 2-1 lead. In the bottom of the third, the Big Green tied the game at 2-2. Schimmoeller led off the inning with a base hit to left field. Senior Jacob Turnwald sacrificed Schimmoeller to second and after a walk to junior Luke Schimmoeller, Boecker came though with a 2-out single, scoring Schimmoeller. The Bulldogs took the lead back in the top of the fifth inning when three consecutive 1-out singles by Jay, Roney and Shafer allowed the visitors to score their third run of the game. The bottom of the fifth was a very pivotal point in the game. The Big Green loaded the bases after a walk to Turnwald, senior Bryan Hohlbein reached base on an error by the Bulldog shortstop and Boecker was hit by a pitch. With Beining batting with the bases loaded, he checked his swing on a pitch from Verhoff that was appealed by the home plate umpire and ruled the third strike by his umpiring partner. Much to the dismay of Big Green head coach Tony Castronova and the Big Green faithful, the inning ended with the Bulldogs still leading 3-2. In the sixth, the Big Green

Jefferson explodes in 5th to rout Miller City DELPHOS Miller Citys baseball team seemed in control of the proceedings Tuesday night at windy Wildcat Field in Delphos, leading 4-1 with two down in the bottom of the fifth inning. Then the roof caved in. Led by home runs from seniors Zach Kimmett and Drew Kortokrax, the host Wildcats exploded for 13 runs to grab a 14-4 5-inning rout of the visiting Wildcats. Senior Tyler Rice was the beneficiary of the eruption, getting the win. Kortokrax went 3-for-4 with that homer, a double, three runs batted in and two scored, while Kimmett went 2-for-3 with five RBIs and two scored and junior Ross Thompson went 3-for-4 with a double. Jefferson (6-2) hosts Lima Central Catholic Thursday (5 p.m.) to kick off NWC action. Miller City falls to 4-2 and host Ottoville tonight.

again got the first two outs of the inning; however, the home squad came up short on another decisive call on leadoff batter Hoffman when he was awarded first base on a walk, again much to the dislike of the Big Green coaching and fan base. Hoffman immediately scored on a double by Benroth and after an intentional walk to Jay, Roney sent a deep bomb to right-centerfield that cleared the fence for a 3-run home run, giving the Bulldogs a decisive 7-2 lead, which they were able to protect in notching their first PCL win on the year. Castronova knew a break or a call here or there and the outcome could have been different: We had our changes but just could not come up with that big 2-out hit to score some more runs. Derek pitched a good game; however, we struggled to finish off innings and some big defensive miscues cost us big-time tonight against a good Bulldog squad. Verhoff got the win for the Bulldogs with a complete-game performance. Schimmoeller picked up his first loss on the year but gave the Big Green everything he had, throwing 110 pitches for the game. The Big Green (1-3, 0-1 PCL) are right back in action tonight as they host the Miller City Wildcats in a non-league game starting at 5 oclock. The Bulldogs (5-1, 1-1 PCL) will travel to Continental for another PCL game at the same time.

Penney CEOs challenge: Can it be fixed?

NEW YORK (AP) There wont be an easy fix for J.C. Penney if it can be fixed at all. As Mike Ullman takes the reins again less than two years after his departure, he faces a Herculean task to undo the mess left by CEO Ron Johnson, who was ousted Monday. With the department store retailer in the middle of a disastrous overhaul that has driven away shoppers, the 66-year-old Ullman has to quickly figure out what parts of Johnsons legacy to keep and what to trash. The overarching question is whether the century-old company can be saved at all. Very few retailers have recovered from a 25 percent sales drop in a single year, like that suffered by Penney under Johnsons watch. On Tuesday, the retailers stock price dropped more than 12 percent to a 12-year-low of $13.93 as investors worries escalated about Penneys future. Ullman cant go back to the old ways, but he cant do what Ron Johnson did, said Ron Friedman, head of the retail and consumer products group at Marcum LLP, a national accounting and consulting firm. I think there will be a combination of the two. But he has to make some quick moves. Apparently, the companys board of directors felt Ullman, who served as Penneys CEO for seven years and is known for strong relationships with suppliers and calm, steady execution, would be the best choice right now to secure the companys future. But it could take Ullman 18 months to stabilize the business, says Burt Flickinger III, president of retail consultancy Strategic Resource Group. He gives the chain a 50-50 chance to survive. The odds are declining every day, said Flickinger, noting that rivals like Macys are taking away market share. Competitors see blood in the water. Johnson, the mastermind behind Apple Inc.s successful retail stores, lasted just 17 months. He faced an ever-growing chorus of critics calling for his resignation as they lost faith in the aggressive overhaul. The rapidfire changes included getting rid of coupons and most discounts in favor of everyday low prices, bringing in new brands and remaking its outdated stores. Johnsons goal was to reinvent the stodgy retailer into a mini-mall of hip specialty shops. Instead, Penneys loyal shoppers went in search of deals elsewhere, and the chain didnt attract the younger and more affluent shoppers that Johnson coveted. Now the 1,100-store chain is burning through cash. In the past year, the company lost nearly a billion dollars and saw its revenue tumble by nearly $4.3 billion to $12.98 billion. Customer traffic dropped 13 percent. Steep sales declines have continued, say analysts, even though Johnson added back some sales events and coupons early this year.

shelf life, so stocking up is a good choice. Check the date on the box. It typically has a best-ifused-by date thats about nine to 12 months from the purchase date. You have plenty of time to store it and eat it. You can freeze cereal; the problem is the amount of space it takes. Keep in mind that cereal goes on sale often and there are coupons for it regularly, too. If youre concerned about having multiple boxes open at a time, you can transfer cereal into plastic zip enclosure storage bags (gallonsize) and place the bag right back into the cereal box.

Tomorrows Horoscope
THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 2013 will almost certainly realize many of your aspirations in coming months. This is mostly because youll be unusually pragmatic and will actively take measures to turn your dreams into realities. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If youre thinking of teaming up with others in something that requires an investment, test the waters before plunging in. That pond might not hold everybody. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Independence is a wonderful quality, but you can carry it too far when its necessary to play nice with others. Be a team player when conditions ask it of you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Guard against a tendency to treat your duties indifferently. Serious matters should never be treated in a cavalier fashion. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Accept your friends for who and what they are, faults and all. If you display intolerance, rest assured others will call attention to your imperfections. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The best way to get a message across to your family is to lead by example. If your attitude is Do as I say, not as I do, you could get into trouble. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Unless associates believe that you know what youre talking about, they arent likely to put much credence in your words. If you want to sway an audience, you must be factual. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Even though you are presently in a good financial cycle, things could still get rocky. In fact, chances are this could be one of those uncertain days. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Usually, you are a strong and decisive person who isnt prone to wavering. However, today you could make associates nervous because of an inability to make up your mind. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Under most conditions, youre not averse to helping others. Today, though, you might lack your usual compassion and miss a chance to assist one who really needs support. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Be extremely selective regarding with whom you associate. If you get mixed up with the wrong people, the results could be disastrous. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Be particularly mindful of your behavior when in public, because your image is currently fragile. Try not to do anything that could provide fodder for your detractors. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Your associates will have a strong influence on your thinking. If you link up with a negative individual, youre likely to see the world from a dark perspective.

Federal budget cuts ground Air Force aircraft

BY BROCK VERGAKIS NORFOLK, Va. (AP) A top general says federal budget cuts that will ground one-third of the U.S. Air Forces active-duty force of combat planes including fighters and bombers means accepting the risk that combat airpower may not be ready to respond immediately to new contingencies as they occur. Gen. Mike Hostage, commander of Air Combat Command at Joint Base LangleyEustis in Virginia, issued the warning Tuesday as the Pentagon braces for more effects of the automatic spending cuts triggered by the lack of a budget agreement in Washington. Hostage said that only the units preparing to deploy to major operations, such as the war in Afghanistan, will remain mission-ready. Other units would stand down on a rotating basis, he added. The Air Force didnt immediately release a list of the specific units and bases that would be affected, but it said it would cover some fighters like F-16 Fighting Falcons and F-22 Raptors, and some airborne warning and control aircraft in the U.S., Europe and the Pacific. The Air Force says, on average, aircrews lose currency to fly combat commissions within 90 to 120 days of not flying. It generally takes 60 to 90 days to train the crews to mission-ready status. Returning grounded units to be ready for missions will require additional funds beyond Air Combat Commands normal budget, according to Air Force officials. The stand down will remain in effect for the remainder of fiscal year 2013 barring any changes to funding. Even a six-month stand down of units will have significant long-term, multi-year impacts on our operational readiness, Air Combat Command spokesman Maj. Brandon Lingle wrote in an email to The Associated Press. The Department of Defense overall faces a $487 billion reduction in projected spending over the next decade and possibly tens of billions more as tea partyers and other fiscal conservatives embrace automatic spending cuts as the best means to reduce the governments trillion-dollar deficit. Today, when President Barack Obama submits his fiscal year 2014 budget, the Pentagon blueprint is expected to include requests for two rounds of domestic base closings in 2015 and 2017, a pay raise of only 1 percent for military personnel and a revival of last years plan to increase health care fees and implement new ones, according to several defense analysts. On Monday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said another huge concern is the uncontrollable cost the Defense Department is paying for health care and other benefits. He said money spent on that is not being used on preparing pilots for missions and troops for combat. The greatest fiscal threat to the military is not declining budgets, Hagel warned, but rather the growing imbalance in where that

Spring storm delivers Couple accused of kidnapping kids returned to US The family showed no sign they knew had an opportunity to talk with them before BY SUZETTE LABOY snow, winds; delays travel a decision about their fate had been made. they left Cuba.
BY BOB MOEN MIAMI (AP) A Florida couple accused of kidnapping their two young sons and fleeing by boat to Cuba were handed over to the United States and their children were returned to the maternal grandparents who have official custody, authorities said today. Joshua Michael Hakken and his wife, Sharyn, were being held at the Hillsborough County Jail on a number of charges including kidnapping, child neglect and interference with custody, the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office said on its website. U.S. authorities say Hakken kidnapped his sons, 4-year-old Cole and 2-year-old Chase, from his mother-in-laws house north of Tampa, Florida. The boys grandparents were granted permanent custody of the boys last week. Our grandchildren are safe, the grandfather, Bob Hauser, told a news conference with the sheriffs office late Tuesday. We BY RAMIT PLUSHNICKMASTI and JUAN A. LOZANO Bob and his wife, Patricia Hauser, asked the news media to give them at least 24 hours alone with the boys, the sheriffs department said in a statement. They planned to make a public statement possibly by Thursday. Cuba tipped the State Department off to the Hakkens presence Sunday, and from that moment diplomatic contact has been exchanged and a professional and constant communication has been maintained, Cuban Foreign Ministry official Johana Tablada said in a statement. An AP reporter spotted the couple and the children beside their boat at the Hemingway Marina in Havana on Tuesday. A man who resembled photographs of Joshua Michael Hakken yelled out Stop! Stay back! as the reporter approached, but there was no outward sign of tension or distress between the family members. The four strolled by an outdoor restaurant as security officials kept reporters at a distance. The youngest child was seated in a stroller and the elder boy sat down on a curb. Hakken lost custody of his sons last year after a drug possession arrest in Louisiana and later tried to take the children from a foster home at gunpoint, authorities said. A warrant had been issued for his arrest on two counts of kidnapping; interference with child custody; child neglect; false imprisonment and other charges. Hakken entered his mother-in-laws Florida house last Wednesday, tied her up and fled with his sons, the sheriffs department has said. Federal, state and local authorities searched by air and sea for a boat Hakken had recently bought. The truck that Hakken, his wife and the boys had been traveling in was found Thursday, abandoned in Madeira Beach, Florida. another, always aiming for the neck or face. Vinton and other students in the science building rushed to help the victims until emergency crews arrived. Michelle Alvarez tried to back away when she saw Quick running toward students. She didnt even feel it as he swiped her. He came running and swinging at my neck, as I tried to get out of the way, she told the Houston Chronicle. It remains unclear how long the attack lasted, but Lone Star college officials said they locked down the campus shortly after 11:30 a.m. Students described phones going off informing them of the lockdown. Some stayed in class until they were dismissed. Others went out to the hallways, where they were evacuated to their cars. The sheriffs office said Quick told them he had fantasized about stabbing people to death since elementary school and had planned the attack for some time.

money is being spent internally. For affected units, the Air Force says it will shift its focus to ground training. That includes the use of flight simulators and academic training to maintain basic skills and aircraft knowledge, Lingle said. Aircraft maintainers plan to clear up as much of a backlog of scheduled inspections and maintenance that budgets allow. On the same day, the Navy confirmed that the Blue Angels aerobatic team would be cancelling the rest of its season. Tom Frosch, the Blue Angels lead pilot and team commander, announced the news late Tuesday at the teams Pensacola Naval Air Station headquarters while standing in front of the one of the iconic blue-and-gold jets. Frosch said the news marks the first time since the Korean War that the team would not make the air show rounds. The Navy held off as long as possible with the hope of salvaging some of the season, Frosch said. We hope well be turned back on for 2014.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) A large spring storm delivering heavy snow, strong wind and rain caused travel problems from Wyoming to Chicago on Tuesday, closing larges stretches of highways and delaying hundreds of flights. In Wyoming, stretches of Interstates 25 and 80 were closed for parts of the day, and blowing snow made driving dangerous along other highways. About 180 miles of I-25 between Cheyenne and Casper were under whiteout conditions. Eastbound I-80 from Cheyenne to Big Springs, Neb., was closed Tuesday night. Wyoming transportation officials said their Nebraska counterparts had warned it could be midday Wednesday before the stretch reopens. Meanwhile, freezing rain, snow and strong winds were hitting Kansas and South Dakota, where many local elections were postponed. Some schools in Minnesota dismissed students early as travel conditions deteriorated. I-90 was closed between Rapid City and Sioux Falls, S.D., as visibility dropped to zero to near-zero on snowy, icy roads. Strong wind gusts caused 21 train cars to derail Tuesday in eastern Nebraska, west of North Bend, Union Pacific railroad spokesman Mark Davis said. No injuries were reported. In Denver, about 6.5 inches of snow fell at the airport, but the weather prompted nearly 500 flight cancellations and deicing planes delayed departures. Flights going to Chicagos OHare International Airport, meanwhile, were being delayed an average of nearly four hours because of dense fog. Many areas of Wyoming and western Nebraska received more than a foot of snow. In western Nebraska, road crews reported 8- to 9-foot drifts. April snowstorms arent unusual in Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain West, but the storm comes after a rather tame winter in many areas. Some areas had daytime temperatures in the teens and 20s. The National Weather Service said Cheyennes high of 12 degrees Tuesday was the coldest on record for April 9. The previous record was 23 degrees set in 1997.

Students describe bloody scene at Texas college

has lived across the street from the Quick family for 15 years. Quick would say hello when he took out the trash. Sometimes, he would work in the yard with his family. Neighbors, though, did note that he rarely came out alone. Still, the Quicks were friendly and fit in well with the other families on the block of brick, ranch-style homes. Most were aware that Quick is deaf. A street sign, Deaf Child In Area, was posted on the block to warn drivers. But hours after the stabbing attack, Quick was charged with three counts of aggravated assault, and the statement from the sheriffs office said pieces of the blade used in the attack were found in at least one victim and at the scene of the attack. A knife handle was found in a backpack Quick was carrying when he was arrested. Authorities were seen leaving Quicks parents home with two brown paper bags. The attack began before noon on a sunny spring day, interrupting the careless chatter of Diante Cotton and his friends, who were sitting in the cafeteria when a girl clutching her neck walked in, yelling. Hes stabbing people, hes stabbing people, Cotton said the girl shouted, his first indication that something was amiss on the normally tranquil campus. Walking outside, Cotton and his friends saw another half-dozen people with injuries to their faces and necks. Some were being loaded into ambulances. The most critically injured were evacuated in medical helicopters. I turned around, and there was just blood just blood dripping down the stairs, all over the floor, all over everyones towels, on their necks, just a lot of blood, Melody Vinton told KHOU-TV. The attacker ran past Vinton, she said, as she was leaving her chemistry class. He was stabbing people, she said, one after

No panic in NKorea despite talk of missile launch


PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) The prospect of a North Korean missile launch is considerably high, South Koreas foreign minister told lawmakers today as Pyongyang calmly prepared to mark the April 15 birthday of its founder, historically a time when it seeks to draw the worlds attention with dramatic displays of military power. The missile is expected to be a medium-range missile with a range of 3,500 kilometers (2,180 miles) capable of flying over Japan, Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se told lawmakers in Seoul. Earlier, a Defense Ministry official said preparations appeared to be complete, and that the launch could take place at any time. Yun said Seoul was bracing for the test-fire of a ballistic missile dubbed Musudan by foreign experts after the name of the northeastern village where North Korea has a launch pad. Experts said the Musudan is mainly built to reach the U.S. territory of Guam though it can also place U.S. military installations in Japan in its striking range. North Korean officials have not announced plans to launch a missile, but have told foreign diplomats in Pyongyang that they will not be able to guarantee their safety starting today. Officials also have urged tourists in South Korea to take cover, warning that a nuclear war is imminent. However, most diplomats and foreign residents appeared to be staying put. The threats are largely seen as rhetoric and an attempt by North Korea to scare foreigners into pressing their governments to pressure Washington and Seoul to change their policies toward Pyongyang, as well as to boost the military credentials of North Koreas young leader, Kim Jong Un. North Korea does not have diplomatic relations with the U.S. and South Korea, its foes during the Korean War of the 1950s. On the streets of Pyongyang, the focus was less on preparing for war and more on beautifying the city ahead of the nations biggest holiday. Soldiers laid blankets of sod to liven up a city still coming out of a long, cold winter; gardeners got down on their knees to plant flowers and trees, and students marched off to school ordinary springtime activities belying the high tensions.

CYPRESS, Texas (AP) Dylan Quick was a shy young man who took out the trash and gardened with his parents, neighbors thought. That image was shattered Tuesday when police accused the 20-year-old of going on a rampage with a knife at a suburban Houston community college and said he later told them he had fantasized for years about stabbing people to death. The Harris County Sheriffs Office said that about 11:20 a.m. Quick began a buildingto-building rampage with a razor-like knife at the Lone Star Community College System in Cypress. He wounded at least 14 people, two critically. I cant imagine what would have happened to that young man to make him do something like this. He is very normal, said Magdalena Lopez, 48, who

Iran says 37 killed in earthquake in south

BY NASSER KARIMI TEHRAN, Iran (AP) A 6.1 magnitude earthquake killed at least 37 and injured hundreds more in a sparsely populated area in southern Iran on Tuesday, Iranian officials said, adding that it did not damage a nuclear plant in the region. The report said the earthquake struck the town of Kaki some 96 kilometers (60 miles) southeast of Bushehr, a town on the Persian Gulf that is home of Irans first nuclear power plant, built with Russian help. No damage was done to Bushehr power plant, Bushehr provincial governor Fereidoun Hasanvand told state TV. He said 37 people had died so far and 850 were

injured, including 100 who were hospitalized. The plants chief, Mahmoud Jafari, confirmed the sites condition to semi-official Mehr news agency, saying that it is resistant to earthquakes of up to magnitude eight. Water and electricity were cut to many residents, said Ebrahim Darvishi, governor of the worst-hit district Shonbeh. The UNs nuclear watchdog agency said on its website that it had been informed by Iran that there was no damage to the plant and no radioactive release and, based on its analysis of the earthquake, was not seeking additional information. The International Atomic Energy Agency statement indicated that it was satisfied there was little danger.

DALLAS (AP) The time-honored skill of typing is still helpful, but its becoming less necessary. And that raises the question: Does typing have a future? In high schools and community colleges where keyboarding classes have been a staple for decades, some fear the courses may go the way of cursive writing lessons in elementary schools. Dallas typing instructor Julie Phillips says predictive keyboards on smartphones and tablet touch screens that guess which words are being typed have taken the skill out of keyboarding. She says fewer students are coming in with keyboarding knowledge. Mobile technology analysts say keyboards likely wont disappear from computers. But mobile phone-makers say speed is important, and predictive screens decrease the time needed to type or thumb each word.

Will typing follow cursive out of the classroom?

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) Gunmen shot to death a policeman protecting a team of female polio workers in northwestern Pakistan today, the latest in a series of attacks on people working on the U.N.-backed vaccination campaign, police said. No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks but suspicion has fallen on Islamic militants. Some have voiced opposition to the campaign, accusing health workers of acting as spies for the United States and claiming the vaccine is intended to make Muslim children sterile. Pakistan is one of only three countries in the world where polio is still endemic. Health workers have made progress in combating the disease in recent years, but the attacks threaten to reverse that progress. The attack occurred today in the district of Mardan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, said police officer Mohammed Nabi Khan. One policeman was killed and another wounded. No polio workers were harmed since they were inside a home giving polio drops to children at the time of the attack, said Khan. In December, gunmen killed nine polio workers in different parts of Pakistan. Several more workers have been killed since then, as well as policemen who were protecting them. The U.N. said last month that some 240,000 children missed vaccinations since July in parts of Pakistans tribal region, the main sanctuary for Islamic militants, because of security concerns.

CAIRO (AP) A Muslim cleric who became known as the preacher of the revolution for his sermons in Tahrir Square during the uprising against ousted President Hosni Mubarak and subsequent anti-government protests said he was suspended Tuesday by a ministerial decree following a citizens complaint about his criticism of the current Islamist president. Sheik Mazhar Shahin told The Associated Press that an inspector from the Religious Endowments Ministry, which oversees mosque preachers, informed him that he was been suspended while the ministry investigates the complaint. Shahin, the preacher at the Omar Makram Mosque, located in Tahrir Square, read to the AP the complaint against him, which accused him of acting like a TV station or opposition paper and deepening divisions by criticizing President Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. He said his position has already been filled by a replacement. The complaint was prompted by a sermon he gave the last Friday in March in which he warned against Brotherhood control over state institutions including the police, military and the Islamic institute of Al-Azhar. He also urged Morsi in the sermon to reach out to opponents, citing traditions saying that Islams Prophet Muhammad even conferred with rivals at times.
