House leaders
looking for deal
to halt Medicare
payment cuts
WASHINGTON (AP) Aides to top
House Republicans and Democrats are hoping to negotiate a bipartisan compromise
to permanently revamp a law that annually
threatens cuts in Medicare payments to doctors, including a 21 percent reduction set to
take effect April 1.
As part of the talks, bargainers are considering budget cuts that would offset part,
but not all, of the measures costs, according
to lobbyists following the negotiations. The
estimated 10-year price of repealing the
annual Medicare cuts is roughly $175 billion.
The lobbyists said Wednesday that the
package also could provide money for a
childrens health program that would otherwise run out of money Oct. 1. A four-year
extension of the Childrens Health Insurance
Program would cost about $10 billion.
Congressional aides confirmed that talks
are underway but declined to provide detail.
We are all aware of the approaching
deadline, said Michael Steel, spokesman
for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.
Members and staff from both leadership
and the committees are naturally discussing
a range of options.
At issue is a formula, known as the sustainable growth rate, from a law that since
1997 has tried curbing spending on doctors
reimbursements under Medicare, the federal
health care program for the elderly.

Lawmakers have come


close before to permanently dismantling the yearly
Medicare cuts, only to fall
short, usually because of
disputes over how to pay
for the legislation.

The lobbyists, who


spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss information gathered from congressional staff, cautioned
that the talks are continuing and that details could
change.
The prospects for congressional passage of
such a package would
be unclear. Though there
is bipartisan support for
finally ending the annual
fights over protecting doctors from Medicare cuts,
the measure would have
to get by conservative
Republicans reluctant to
drive up budget deficits.
Depending on what savings the package would
impose, the measure could
meet resistance from

County Cattlemen
Wheat needs nitrogen to reproduce Putnam
offer beef marketing meeting
BY JAMES HOORMAN
Putnam County Extension
Ag Educator
news@delphosherald.com

The following article was written by Ed Lentz and edited by Jim


Hoorman.
Wheat in the area will begin to
turn green (green-up) this month
and begin to grow after being dormant during the winter (about the
same time lawns will begin to look
green).
Wheat needs large amounts of
nitrogen when the plants switch
from a vegetative stage to reproductive. The switch is visible when
reproductive tillers elongate and the
crop will appear to be getting taller.
This elongation period will continue
until the grain head emerges from
the stem.
Reproductive tillers generally
begin to elongate around the end of
April. Significant yield losses may
occur if a farmer has not applied
nitrogen by this time. Twenty years
ago farmers may have applied nitrogen at the end of February when the
ground was still frozen and could
easily support application equipment. They discontinued that practice because of the potential to lose
nitrogen from heavy rains, melting
snow or moving water.
Farmers still have the challenge
of the ground being fit or firm
enough for fertilizer equipment
because of frequent rains that may
occur in March and April. But if it
rains for two weeks during that time
and fertilizer is not applied, yield
losses will occur.
A practical compromise is to
apply nitrogen any time fields are
suitable for application after initial
green-up to early stem elongation.
Nitrogen loss is minimal during this

time since the young growing wheat


will behave like a cover crop and
hold the nitrogen until stem elongation (reproductive development).
Research has shown that in most
years yields are similar from applications made between green-up and
early stem elongation (Lentz, 2014).
There is still a potential for loss
even at green-up applications. To
lessen this risk, farmers may use a
nitrogen source early in the season
that has a lower potential for loss,
such as urea or ammonium sulfate. Environmental Smart Nitrogen
(ESN) would be another option but
it needs to be blended with urea or
ammonium sulfate to insure enough
nitrogen will be available for early
crop development. ESN is a slow
release polymer-coated urea that is
considerably more expensive than
other nitrogen sources. The source
of nitrogen becomes less important
as the application date approaches stem elongation. Large rates of
ESN would be undesirable near
stem elongation belongs of its slow
release.
Agronomy Guide, 14th edition,
outlines spring nitrogen fertilization
for wheat:
Spring nitrogen should be
applied between March 1 and April
30. When starter fertilizer is applied
in the fall, spring applications in
mid- to late April are satisfactory.
When no nitrogen is applied in the
fall, spring applications should be
made before April 15. The spring
application should be the total
nitrogen recommended minus the
fall application. A 90-bushel per
acre wheat crop would require 110
pounds of N and if the farmer applied
30 pounds in the fall, the remaining
80 pounds should be spring applied.
Nitrogen rates depend on expected
yield with 60 bushel wheat needing

60#N, 70 bu (75#N), 80 bu (90#N),


and 100 bu (130#N).
Generally farmers apply nitrogen in one application in the spring
but a split spring application program may be a benefit in poorly
drained fields that are prone to
N loss or fields prone to lodging.
For these fields, the first application should occur soon after initial
green-up and the second application at initial jointing. Application
should be made after initial greenup and before the second visible
node on the stem. Up to half the
total intended N may be applied in
the second application.
Most sources of N are satisfactory for wheat. Urea and 28 percent solutions (urea and ammonium
nitrate) are often the most common N fertilizer sources. Urea has
the least potential to cause damage
to the crop. Damage is generally
insignificant from broadcast applications of 28 percent N solutions
applied early, but the potential damage increases as the crop matures.
Dribble band applications will minimize damage from 28 percent solutions. Urea will have a short lag
before N is available as it converts
to nitrate and ammonium in the soil.
The nitrate fraction of 28 percent
N solutions will be susceptible to
loss after application until the plant
uptake occurs. In extremely warm
weather, urea may be lost due to
volatilization. (26-27).
All agricultural activities (food
production) are a balancing act that
involves compromises to insure
sustainability, good environmental stewardship and profitability.
Farmers in the area have long ago
adapted practices to minimize nutrient loss to achieve these three goals.

Deadline approaching: Lt. Governor Taylor


urges farmers to review crop insurance needs
INFORMATION
SUBMITTED
COLUMBUS As
spring
planting
season arrives, Lieutenant
Governor Mary Taylor
is urging Ohio farmers
to consider the available financial protections
against agricultural losses
as an important insurance
deadline approaches.
Crop insurance is
an important risk-management tool available
to Ohios farmers, said
Taylor, also Director of the
Department of Insurance.
I encourage farmers to
carefully review your
insurance needs to ensure
you have the right coverage to protect your business.
The final date to purchase or modify crop insurance coverage on most
insurable spring-planted
crops is Sunday, according to the U.S. Department
of Agricultures Risk
Management
Agency
(RMA).

Crop insurance is divided into two categories, the


federally-subsidized and
reinsurance-backed multiple-peril crop insurance
and state-regulated crop/
hail insurance. Multipleperil crop insurance
provides
extensive coverage for losses from
weather, to pests,
and loss of revenue. It must be
purchased before
planting begins and
companies selling
have to be licensed
by the RMA. Crop/
hail insurance is
typically limited to losses
due to hail and/or fire.
This coverage can be purchased at any time during
the growing season.
Policies are issued by
private insurance companies and sold by licensed
agents, who can explain
recent crop insurance
changes. For example,
the 2014 federal farm bill
expanded available protection against losses due

to natural disasters and


price declines and added
compliance requirements.
Unlike other types of
insurance, crop insurance
is dependent on established dates. These dates
are determined by
the RMA ahead of
the planting season
and are published
on its website at
w w w. r m a . u s d a .
gov. Dates vary by
crop and by county.
The following
are brief definitions of important dates farmers
should expect to meet:
Sales Closing Date: All
crop insurance applications for the designated
county and crop are due
by this date.
Final Planting Date:
Crop must be planted
by this date; a penalty
is placed on the amount
of coverage for each day
late.
Acreage
Reporting
Date: Acreage report

includes a list of crops


planted, number of acres
planted (each crop), and
share of crop (if ownership is shared).
End of Insurance Date:
Crop is no longer covered after this date; losses
must be reported before
this date.
Termination Date: This
is when a policy premium
must be paid.
Farmers can contact
the Ohio Department of
Insurance at 800-686-1526
for assistance in determining if an insurance company and/or insurance
agent are licensed to write
crop insurance in Ohio.
You can also visit the
Departments website at
www.insurance.ohio.gov
to review the agent/agency locator tool.
For more information
about crop insurance policy options, a list of definitions, coverages and
specific policy dates, visit
the RMA website at www.
rma.usda.gov.

Farm Bureau supports new nutrient bill


INFORMATION SUBMITTED
COLUMBUS Ohio House Bill
61, aimed at reducing nutrient runoff in the Western Lake Erie Basin
(WLEB), has earned the support of
the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation
(OFBF).
As legislators looked to respond
to algal blooms in Ohios waters,
Farm Bureau worked with lawmakers to improve HB 61 and make it
more practical for farmers. Because
HB 61 meets these goals, OFBF has
designated it a key vote and is
asking legislators to pass the measure.
HB 61 will restrict the application
of nutrients on frozen, snow-covered or saturated ground in the

Western Lake Erie


Basin while addressing two Farm Bureau
priorities:
farmers
are allowed the necessary time to come
into compliance and
realistic standards are
established for how
farmers can operate under certain
weather conditions.
Also crucial to the bill gaining
Farm Bureaus support was lawmakers assurance that resources will
be provided to help farmers comply
with the bills provisions.
Further, the bill meets Farm
Bureau policy that seeks comprehensive water quality initiatives.
The legislation addresses non-agri-

cultural concerns including publicly owned water


treatment facilities and
dredging issues.
Farm Bureau believes
lawmakers
achieved
an appropriate balance
between protecting natural resources and creating
workable rules for farmers. The
organization thanked Speaker Cliff
Rosenberger, the bills sponsors,
the committee chairman, committee
members and other lawmakers who
contributed to this important legislation.
The House is expected to vote on
the measure this week. HB 61 and
similar legislation from the Senate
will be considered by both chambers.

Nearly $500,000 awarded


for economic growth for
rural communities
USDA grant enables Center for Rural Affairs, UVM
to address healthcare needs of farmers and ranchers
INFORMATION SUBMITTED
LYONS, Nebraska - Recently, the U.S. Department
of Agricultures (USDA) National Institute of Food and
Agriculture (NIFA) announced nearly $14 million in
grants to support four programs to increase prosperity in
rural America through research, education and extension
programs focused on promoting rural community development, economic growth and sustainability.
Partnering organizations, the University of Vermont
(Burlington, Vermont) and Center for Rural Affairs
(Lyons, Nebraska) were awarded $499,994 for a project
linking health care reform and economic development in
the agriculture sector.
This project will allow us and partners in other
states to reach out to farmers and ranchers and find out
their experiences with the Affordable Care Act, their
experiences in purchasing health insurances through the
health insurance marketplaces, and discover the health
care needs of farmers and ranchers and their families,
according to Jon Bailey, Director of the Centers Rural
Public Policy Program. This will allow us to both gather information for research purposes and recommendations, if any, to better meet the health care and health
insurance needs of rural people and families.
Nearly 60 million Americans live in rural areas and
their value and impact through the agriculture industry can be felt both domestically and internationally,
said Sonny Ramaswamy, NIFA director. To help these
communities remain prosperous and viable, we need to
support discovery of new ways that promote economic
viability among producers, small businesses and communities in rural America.
Farmers, ranchers and rural communities are the
backbone and economic lifeblood for Americans everywhere, providing food, feed, fiber, fuels and open spaces, Ramaswamy continued. However, rural areas and
communities face many hardships. High poverty rates,
slow recovery from economic recession and low average income per household are all challenges to having
a successful and viable community. Funding from NIFA
is expected to assist communities and regions in creating self-sustaining, long-term economic development
through research and strategic planning.
A fact sheet with a complete list of awardees and
project descriptions is available: www.usda.gov/documents/NIFA-rural-comms-descriptions.pdf.

Celina has big finishing kick


to oust Elida in boys Districts

Musings

By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor

This item caught my eye the other day.
It is about an Oklahoma football commit, Jean Delance,
decommitting to the school after a video aired that caught
members of a college fraternity chanting racist comments
on a field trip or whatever it was.
The junior is a highly-rated recruit and told a local
radio station he was disappointed that Oklahoma head
coach Bob Stoops didnt tell him what was going on,
even as the coach joined his players in a protest Monday
instead of participating in a spring football practice.
Why did this catch my eye, you might inquire.
The answer in a moment.
I totally get the outrage at this college fraternity
Sigma Alpha Epsilon for this, well, stupid behavior:
in this day and age, everybody has to be extra careful
about what they say or do within ear shot or is it eye
shot? of a cameraphone, Ipad, Ipod or whatever those
mechanical thingamabobs are called!
The chant apparently makes it very explicit that a
black student would never be welcomed at this particular
campus fraternity.
Not a very intelligent public relations or even simply human move, smart guys!
At the same time, to use this as an excuse not to go
some place for school is a shame and goes to show the
changing face of our culture.
Maybe it is a good move for Delance to step back and
really figure it out for himself.
Has he gone through some situations that would sway
his decision so quickly? After all, he seemed to take this
event very personally, even though he has yet to enroll
on campus.
What made him want to go to OU to begin with?
After all, Stoops called off spring practice to march
with his players in solidarity with his team; he felt offended enough to do so.
What else can he do? Kick the fraternity off campus?
No, he cant do that but the national fraternity has
nixed the organization and closed the house.
The school is considering its options.

BENTON RIDGE Elida


and Celina have been longtime rivals in the Western
Buckeye League and played
their league boys basketball
battle just three weeks ago,
with Celina winning.
When they two met up
again Wednesday night
this time in a Division II
District semifinal at LibertyBenton High School fans
expected a tighter contest,
especially with two teams and
coaches that know each other:
Elidas Denny Thompson and
Celinas Chris Bihn.
They got what they
expected.
This time, the Green
and White Celina Bulldogs
had the big finishing kick
a 12-3 spurt that gave
them a 53-45 triumph over
the Orange and Black Elida
Bulldogs.
The win moves Celina
(21-3) on to tangle with St.
Marys Memorial, who vanquished fellow WBL cohort
Wapakoneta 52-45 later, at 7
p.m. Saturday back at L-B.
Elida (10-13) was playing catchup from the opening
basket this night, having to
overcame anywhere from a
1-point deficit to as much as
12 midway through the third
period.
They trailed 36-31 at the
end of three quarters and
Celina (21-3) twice built
7-point leads in the early
stages of the finale, the last at
40-33 on a basket by the 6-4
Caleb Hoyng (10 markers,
12 boards) at the 7-minute
mark. A free toss by senior
Austin Allemeier (14 markers) at 6:48 got Elida going.
He hit a trifecta at 5:36 and

11260 Elida Rd. Delphos, OH 45833

Elida senior Clark Etzler drives to the hoop over Celinas Jacob Stolly in a Division II District semifinal clash
Wednesday at Liberty-Benton. (DHI Media/Kenny Poling)
a drive at 4:04. After a single by 6-3 Ryan Hoyng (10
counters, 6 boards, 6 assists,
3 steals) at 3:57 gave Celina
a 41-39 lead, Elida bomber
Josh Press (8 points) buried
a 3-ball from the left wing at
3:30 to give Elida their first
lead at 42-41. Alas, it would
be their last.
A toss by R. Hoyng tied it
at 42 with 3:09 left and that
started a big 10-0 spurt: the
triple by 6-4 Logan Delong
at 2:14 that gave the Green
Dogs the lead for good, a
2-footer by 6-3 Grant Laffin
(11 counters) at 1:19 and
his two singles (1:02) and a
breakaway layin by C. Hoyng
at 41 ticks. Allemeier finally

broke that string with a 3-ball


out of the left corner at 35
ticks but that was all Elida
had.
Celinas game plan from
the start was pound the ball
inside with their bigger front
line (tallest Elida guy that
played was the 6-3 Press) and
they got off quickly, scooting
out to a 9-1 edge on a Delong
basket midway through the
first. Elida seemed to get
more of a handle on that
as the quarter went on and
played on more even terms,
despite Press being held to
no first-half points by Laffin.
When Jacob Stolly dropped a
rainbow from the right wing
at 1:25, Celina led 12-5.

Elida slowly mounted a rally behind five from


Allemeier and four by 6-1
sophomore Baylen Stinson (5
points, 8 caroms). A 3-point
drive-and-harm by Allemeier
at 2:20 got the black-clad
Dawgs within 16-15 but
a 6-0 late spurt by Celina,
capped by a flip putback
by R. Hoyng just before
the horn, put the white-clad
Bulldogs up 22-17.
Celina kept up that trend
the first half of the third period, shooting out to its biggest
lead of 34-22 on a thirdchance putback by C. Hoyng
at the 3:20 mark and forcing Thompson to call timeout. Sophomore Drew Sarno
helped provide the answer
with his two treys a 9-0
span to get within 34-31 on
his second bomb at 48 ticks
before a short jumper with
3.0 ticks left gave Celina a
36-31 lead.
We played so hard from
start to finish; we battled and
battled and battled and finally
got the lead but Celina had
the last spurt. We just failed
in what I call situational basketball: decisions that led to
turnovers instead of finding
open people, Thompson
added. I feel back for Austin
and Clark; they really led
this team all season. I also
feel for Patrick (Brockert),
who didnt play; hes work so
hard this week to try and put
himself in position to play
tonight but it just didnt happen.
Celina finished with
50-percent shooting (19-of-38,
including 5-of-13 downtown)
from the field; with 10-of-13
at the line (76.9%); and with
23 boards (9 offensive), six
turnovers and 13 fouls.

Lady Green sees mirror


image in New Riegel
By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
The Ottoville girls basketball took not
quite half the 2014-15 season to find its
niche and really find its groove, especially doing so over the last two months
of the campaign and into the second
season.
The Lady Big Green (18-7) rode
that climb into tonights Division IV
Regional semifinals at the Elida
Fieldhouse, awaiting New Riegel (20-4) in
the first clash at 6:15 p.m.
The second clash features Fostoria St.
Wendelin (22-4) and Pettisville (24-1).
As for New Riegel, Lady Big Green head
coach Dave Kleman sees a team very similar
to his own.
Size-wise, we are very similar. Quicknesswise, that is the same, Kleman began. We
play similar styles in liking to get up and
down the floor, plus using our defense to get
easy offense. They like to use full-court pres-

sure to push the tempo.


They have a nice point guard, Scherger;
she makes everything go. They have a player
like our Annie (Lindeman); she can go inside
or out. They have several spot-up shooters, just
as we do. Their coach has been doing
this for almost 30 years at that school,
longer than I have, and they always seem
to be making long runs in the tournament. They were in the Regionals last
year with the same crew that knows what
its like to be this far, so they are hungry
to get to State, just as we always are.
Besides the senior Lindeman (6-0),
Ottovilles starting five includes senior Lexie
Wannemacher (5-10), sophomore Brooke
Mangas (5-6), classmate Alicia Honigford
(5-6) and freshman Bridget Landin (5-11).
Off the bench minus injured 5-10 senior
Lyndsay Wannemacher is senior Haley
Landwehr (5-5), senior Courtney Von Sossan
(5-5), junior Nicole Kramer (5-7) and 5-9
sophomore Alexis Thorbahn.

Ohio State doubters, really?


Champs think they exist
By RUSTY MILLER
Associated Press
COLUMBUS Ohio State linebacker Joshua Perry says the doubters
are out there, questioning and putting
down the Buckeyes.
He doesnt name names but Perry
says hes keeping tabs on them.
Many teams create a boogeyman to
fabricate an us-against-them mentality.
Count the national champs in that group.
Even in the wake of the 42-20 rout
of Oregon in Januarys College Football
Playoff title game, Perry and his teammates believe that there are still a lot
of observers who think last years 14-1
championship run was a fluke.
We have a target on our back and
people are going to doubt us, Perry said
shortly after Ohio States first spring practice on Tuesday. So we still have something to prove every day that we go out
there. And its also a bit of a pride thing,
being here and knowing what weve done
and then knowing the guys that we have,
that we could be special this year.
So even though the Buckeyes will
likely enter the 2015 season as No. 1,
even though they return all but eight
starters and have a stable full of quality
players up and down the roster, they
remain worried that people just dont
give them their due.
They plan on using that as motivation
for the months of workouts ahead.
I could see why there are reasons
that people could doubt us not that I
believe in those, said offensive tackle
Taylor Decker. But we did lose players
that were vital to that team last year. Its

kind of scary, a team coming off a big


season like we did, to have a letdown.
Because you dont want guys to think
theyve arrived, or to (feel like theyre)
entitled to winning games.
The team doesnt want to be overconfident, even as it rides the crest
of a 13-game winning streak,
has an improving defense and
yardage-eating tailback in
Ezekiel Elliott. A lot of teams
are looking for an elite quarterback Ohio State has not
one, not two but three.
Of course, two of the
three 2-time Big Ten MVP
Braxton Miller (shoulder surgery) and last years first-team all-conference signal-caller J.T. Barrett (recovering
from a broken ankle) cant practice this
spring. Still, theyve got Cardale Jones at
the controls. All he did was go 3-0 in his
only collegiate starts, looking polished
and poised in the Big Ten championship
game, national semifinal victory over
top-ranked Alabama and the title game.
Coach Urban Meyer isnt worried about
inspiring his players just yet. Therell be
plenty of time for that before the opener
on Sept. 7 at Virginia Tech. Instead, hes
trying to develop some depth while simply
having each player get better.
Right now, were not into the motivation, he said. Its just about improving. As long as a player or program feels
like its getting better, the motivation is
going to be there. Were not trying to
win a game yet.
But on cold mornings, college kids
need a reason to slide out of the covers
at 7 a.m. and collide with teammates for

a couple of hours. So they use perceived


slights or potential haters to get pumped
up for another dreary day of conditioning. Its only natural.
To break up the monotony, the Buckeyes
plan on getting inspired by those who run
down the Big Ten, or who
wonder if Ohio State can possibly be as good again.
It wouldnt be as much
fun if everybody was just
always cheering you on all the
time, Perry added. You kind
of need those doubters to give
you that little extra edge.
QB
controversy?
Theres a 3-headed quarterback controversy brewing at Ohio State.
For now, however, Meyer doesnt
want to even think about it.
When you say, How does it play
out? I dont know, he told reporters.
Its day to day, player by player. Thats
the focus not whats going to happen
and what we foresee.
The rest of the Buckeyes arent taking sides.
I know weve got three good quarterbacks who can all play, Decker said.
And whoever they throw in there, I
know well be fine. Thats for the coaches to figure out. Ill just do my job.
There was speculation after the season that Jones coming off a big
postseason as a third-year sophomore
would make himself available for
the NFL draft. There was also talk that
Miller, a 2-time Big Ten player of the
year and now a graduate student, would
transfer to avoid the logjam at the position.

Ohio MLB Spring Training

Associated Press
Royals 5, Reds 2
GOODYEAR, Ariz. Erik Kratz homered off left-hander
Tony Cingrani, who is trying to win one of the openings in
Cincinnatis rotation, and the split-squad Kansas City Royals
beat the Reds 5-2 on Wednesday.
Cingrani, coming off shoulder problems last season, gave
up three hits and a walk in three innings, including Kratzs
solo homer.
Left-hander Paul Maholm started for
Cincinnati and allowed one hit in three scoreless innings, strengthening his bid for one
of the three open spots in the rotation. The
Royals Jorge Bonifacio hit a 2-run double off reliever Sam
LeCure in the eighth.
Joey Votto had a sacrifice fly off Joe Blanton, who gave up
four hits and a run in three innings. Votto is working back from
a thigh injury that sidelined him most of last season
Blanton is in a similar situation to Maholm, trying to make
the roster as a starter or long relief for the American League
champions. It was his second outing of the spring.
Designated hitter Omar Infante doubled in four trips to the
plate in his first start this spring.
TRAINIERS ROOM
Royals: Omar Infante played his first game after having
a cortisone injection in his throwing shoulder on Saturday.
Infante was 1-for-4 with a double as the designated hitter.
Reds: Homer Bailey threw his fifth bullpen session on
Wednesday. He is tentatively scheduled for live batting practice on the 14th. He will pitch two live bullpen sessions before
pitching in a game. He is recovering from elbow surgery.
Billy Hamilton (shoulder) and Devin Mesoraco (concussion)
have increased baseball activity. Jay Bruce was scratched from
the lineup Wednesday with a strained right calf.

Royals: Blanton felt better in his start on Wednesday. Hes
hoping to stick with the Royals as a starter or long reliever.
Reds: Maholm was happy to get so many ground-ball outs.
Maholm has induced 199 double play balls in the last nine
seasons, the most in the big leagues.
PICKED

Green

(Continued from page 6A)

The key when playing a team that is


a mirror image is scoring more points.
How you do that is simply execute better
what your game plan is, on both ends,
Kleman continued.
Coming off a 41-39 barn-burner over
archrival Kalida Saturday in the District
finals, Kleman points to an earlier loss
to Kalida as the turning point of this
season.
That goes back to Jan. 8 when we

Elida

played one of our worst games of the


season. We were entering a tough stretch
of games and not playing very well,
Kleman added. We kind of did it by
necessity. I said from the beginning
that we were going to need heavy contributions from four classes and trying
to meld four classes together like that
was not going to happen overnight; we
had to figure out roles for everybody
and find minutes for everybody. After
that game, we had the heart-to-heart I
mentioned earlier and that was when the

(Continued from page 6A)

I have watched about 15 films of Elida and they never


played so well on defense as they did tonight; they made us
work for everything. Weve never had to run another set
after we ran a first set all the way through and couldnt get a
shot as many times as we did tonight, Bihn said.
Elida totaled 17-of-37 from the floor (7-of-14 from deep) for
45.9 percent; 4-of-9 singles (44.4%); and with 22 boards (6 by
senior Clark Etzler) nine offensive 11 errors and 14 fouls.

Musings

(Continued from page 6A)

According to reports, at least two of


the offenders were expelled, with other
possible expulsions as well as other
sanctions being discussed.
I have a big question: how many
members of the frat were involved, either
joining in the chant or sitting idly by?
Those that didnt speak up might
speak even louder than those who did
chant.
If they all werent involved, why
punish those that werent involved?
I have a better idea: kick out the
knuckleheads that were the ones respon-

Cingrani, who has one of the better pick-off moves, caught


Christian Colon and Bubba Starling off first base.

Athletics 3, Indians 2
MESA, Ariz. Brandon Moss had a home run and a triple
against his former team but the Cleveland Indians lost to the
Oakland Athletics 3-2 Wednesday.
Moss, acquired by the Indians in an offseason trade, tripled
off As starter Kendall Graveman in the second inning but was
stranded at third. He connected with one out in the fourth off
Fernando Abad to cut Oaklands lead to 3-2. It was his second
homer of the spring.
The As scored three runs in the second.
Free-agent signee Billy Butler led off the inning with his
second homer. Stephen Vogt reached second base
on an outfield error and Marcus Semien walked.
Billy Burns had an RBI single and Craig Gentry hit
a sacrifice fly.
STARTING TIME
Indians: RHP Danny Salazar struggled in 1 2/3
innings, giving up a pair of hits, including Butlers
home run.
Athletics: Graveman picked up his second win of the
spring. Melvin was pleased with his 3-inning effort one run
on two hits with a strikeout and a walk.
TRAINERS ROOM
Indians: Team medical officials are trying to figure out how
best to handle Gavin Floyd. The RHP re-injured his elbow
(stress fracture). INF-OF Nick Swisher is making his way
back from knee surgery and is expected to resume game action
within a few weeks. RHP Josh Tomlin, a late scratch from
Sundays game due to right shoulder fatigue, was expected to
throw a side session on Wednesday.
Athletics: RF Josh Reddick (strained oblique muscle) continues to work his way back but still is looking at a minimum of 10
days before resuming baseball activity. LF Coco Crisp will be
sidelined for at least a few more days with a strained right triceps.
Tests revealed no structural damage after he sustained the injury on
Sunday. New 1B Ike Davis was scratched from Wednesdays
game with back spasms. The situation was not believed to be too
serious, and he likely will return to action Thursday or Friday.

girls finally bought into what we were


trying to do.
I look at two players in particular
that had to adjust and take on a different role: Nicole and Haley. They could
start for a lot of teams but they accepted
providing a spark off the bench for us,
just what we need. Weve been playing
some good teams and playing our best
ball since.
The Regional final for the two victors
is 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

sible and leave the rest alone.


The move by the national chapter
leads me to believe as do other
reports I have read that either this is
something that is a problem at this campus fraternity or nationally and they are
making a quick move to try and muffle
the damage.
If this is a first-time thing if is the
biggest word in the English language
I dont think they should be expelled.
After all, is no one allowed to make a
mistake, they we are all in trouble.
You find a suitable punishment for
these guys to really think about what
they have done. Smarter minds than

mine can come up with something that


helps the community in some way and
gives these guys to learn a much-needed
lesson; were all in this together.
I have another question: was alcohol
involved?
Maybe that is no excuse after
all, can alcohol sometimes be a cheap
truth serum that unmasks deeply-held
thoughts? but we give people second
chances all the time.
Why not in this case?
I repeat all bets are off if this is
found to be a consistent issue either at
Norman or nationally and they are getting what they deserve.

Do just
one thing

by Danny Seo
Buying vintage
clothes, bags and
shoes is a great way
to create personal
style and reuse something at the same
time. But sometimes
vintage clothes can
smell like, well, vintage clothes. To get
rid of musky odors
for items that are
hard to wash, reach
for your cats musthave item: kitty litter.
The same activated
charcoal in kitty litter that absorbs odor
can eliminate smells
from your vintage
finds, too. For bags
and luggage, just
dump a few cups inside, close it up and
let it sit for a week
or so. For clothes,
just fill a garbage
bag with clothes and
sprinkle kitty litter
inside. Seal it up for
a week to give everything a fresh smell.

please watch them on his own


time, when my three younger
siblings arent in the house,
he tells me that because he
pays the bills he has the right
to do what he wants.
Abby, not only do these
graphic movies make me
uncomfortable, Im worried
my siblings will begin asking
questions. -- UNCOMFORTABLE IN OREGON
DEAR UNCOMFORTABLE: If there are adult
relatives who can convince
your dad that what hes doing
is unwise -- an aunt, uncle,
grandparent -- talk to them
about whats going on right
away. If there arent, then a
trusted teacher or counselor
at school should be informed
because what your father is
doing is extremely inappropriate. Exposing children to
graphic images can give them
unrealistic expectations about
what sex is really all about.
DEAR ABBY: My girlfriend and I have talked about
becoming engaged. The subject of the wedding dress
came up. She broke off a past
engagement last year, and
she has asked me whether it
would be OK for her to use
the dress she chose for the
wedding that didnt happen.

ex-fiance.
I feel we should try to sell
the dress, although it was tailored for her, and pick a new
one. What do you think is
appropriate? I dont like the
idea of looking back at the
wedding photos and thinking the dress was meant for
another man. -- FUTURE
HUSBAND IN SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA
DEAR HUSBAND: Actually, the dress was meant for
your fiancee and not another
man. There are specialists
who can redesign an existing
wedding dress. However, because you have negative associations with this gown, offer
to sweeten the pot by chipping in if she cant get $1,000
for the one she has. I think the
most appropriate thing on
your wedding day should be
that you are both comfortable,
happy and, above all, in sync.
DEAR ABBY: I dont
sympathize or empathize
with others. When people
are sad or upset over deaths,
failed relationships, etc., my
reaction is annoyance at the
person because I feel Im
being forced to offer an emotion I dont genuinely feel. I
have experienced all of these
things in my own life, but I

harder and harder for me to


fake these emotions. My wife
was in tears for a couple of
days because someone she
knew died. I tried to pretend
to empathize with her, but
I found myself getting annoyed by what I thought was
her overreaction. Someone
she knew died; it happens to
all of us. Lets move on. Is
something wrong with me? -MOVING ON IN TENNESSEE
DEAR MOVING ON:
Some people live the veneer
of life; others live the hardwood. It appears you are
among the former and insulated against painful emotions.
However, Im cautioning you
to be patient and show respect
for the feelings of others who
have more emotional depth,
or you may be spending a lot
of time alone in the future.

Ask Mr.
Know-it-All

Kool-Aid was
an instant hit

by Gary Clothier
Q: In a grocery
store museum, I recall seeing a package
of Kool-Ade. Is this
the same thing as
the Kool-Aid that is
currently available?
-- M.B., Bay Minette,
Ala.
A:
In
1914,
25-year-old
Edwin Perkins started
a small mail-order
business called Perkins Products Company. The company
sold small bottles of
perfume and calling
cards through magazine advertisements.
By 1920, he and his
wife, Kitty, were offering more than 125
products, including
extracts, spices, medicines and toiletries.
One of the bestsellers
was a 4-ounce bottle
of soft drink syrup
called Fruit Smack.
By the mid-1920s,
Perkins had the idea
of turning the syrup
into a powder concentrate. He named
the new product
Kool-Ade, but later
changed it to KoolAid. In mid-1953,
Perkins Products was
taken over by General Foods.
DID
YOU
KNOW? The lead
role of President of
the United States in
the movie Air Force
One (1997) was
written with Kevin
Costner in mind, but
he had to turn down
the role because of
other commitments;
the role went to Harrison Ford.
