Hoehn considers dollhouse-making therapy

BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS — When Renee Hoehn had her hip operated on in 2009, she went

a little stir crazy. Unable to

work to fill her days, she dove back into a hobby she had put aside during the years she drove her kids back and forth from school and sport- ing events: making dollhous-

es. Hoehn and her husband Dan made their first doll- house in 1983, a farmhouse.

“The farmhouse was one

of the less expensive ones but

it had a lot of pieces. It took a

long time to put together; we lost count after 250 hours.” Hoehn said. “Dan builds them and then I make all of the furniture and decorations. The next one we built was the mansion, which we started in 1991, and it was a lot more expensive. They called it the ‘Cadillac of kits.’ Dan cov- ered the exterior with these little bricks, one piece at a time.” “When I had my hip oper- ation, I couldn’t go anywhere and it got pretty bad so I just jumped back into this and went at it like a maniac,” she continued. “And then last summer I had my other hip done and said I wasn’t going to quit and went on to make all of the rugs and curtains. It’s really therapeutic for me, even if I’m just coming

in here now and looking at everything.” With her passion for doll- house making, Hoehn has pulled family and friends into the fun.

“My daughters have made some themselves, for 4-H,” she said. “They each got grand champion; my daugh- ter Chanda with her sweet shop and my daughter Edana with her produce stand. We’ve made other little things together, like a fairy forest and then my mother had a general store. When we got the farmhouse, Dan

and I decided it would be for

Chanda and we kept saying Edana needed a house now, too. So, after my grandma died, she left some of her money to us and it wasn’t really that much, so we used it to get the mansion when we were in New York. My mom was tickled that that’s what we used it for. Then when mom died, she left us a little bit of money too and with that, I bought all of the little appliances in here.” When you take pictures of the inside of the dollhouses, the Hoehns say they could almost pass as life-size homes because of how detailed the furnishings are. “Anything you can pos- sibly want or think of for a house you can order in min- iature,” Dan said. “And you can find several price ranges with each item.”

Arizona wildfire expected to spread to New Mexico


BRYAN Associated Press

SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. — A massive wildfire in east- ern Arizona that has claimed more than 30 homes and cab- ins and forced nearly 10,000 people to flee was poised to move into New Mexico on Friday, threatening more towns and possibly endan- gering two major power lines that bring electricity from Arizona to West Texas. The fire has burned 639

square miles of forest, an increase of 114 square miles from a day earlier, officials said Friday. Lighter winds Thursday and Friday helped the 3,000 firefighters on the lines make progress, but critical fire conditions remain, said Jim Whittington, a spokesman for the teams battling the fire. High winds were expected to return with a vengeance today. “We have until then to get as much work as we can done and get to the point where we

can sit back and watch the winds come,” Whittington said. Fire crews plan to try to strengthen what lines they’ve been able to establish and continue burning out forested areas in front of the main fire to try to stop its advance. It was officially just 5 per- cent contained Friday, but the actual numbers likely are higher, Whittington said. The advances came on the fire’s north side, near the working-class towns of Springerville and Eagar on

Staff Reports

DELPHOS — A group of young people from the Netherlands stopped in Delphos Friday on their way through Ohio. The group of 20 ate lunch at The Grind and visited the Bunge North America facil- ity because the company started in their country. “This is a young farm- er group that’s visiting the U.S. and traveling from Washington, DC to

Cincinnati and they want to make it up to Michigan to see some Dutch farms,” said Facility Manager Tony Matney. “They happened to be traveling through and requested a brief overview of the Bunge process. We originated in Amsterdam in the 1800s and they stopped just as part of the travels.” The group is part of an organization called NAJK International. The group flew into DC June 5, visit-

ed the Dutch Embassy and Farm Bureau office, drove to The Ohio State University, then to Cincinnati to the Zwanenberg Food Group. Then, on to northern Indiana to see a Dutch farm- er and some dairy farms this weekend in Michigan. Then, on to more farm- ers in Indiana and Illinois and up to Wisconsin to the CASE IH tractor factory in Racine and back down to Chicago to the Board of Trade offices.

the edge of the forest. Nearly 10,000 people have been evacuated from the two towns and from several mountain communities in the forest. “I can’t even speculate on when we can let people back in, but I can tell you we’re not going to let people back in until we can be sure they will be safe and don’t have to leave again,” Whittington said. On Friday, fire officials gave reporters the first look at two of the mountain commu- nities — Alpine and Nutrioso — in nearly two weeks, driv- ing them through the deserted resort towns and surrounding areas. Some stands of trees in the forest were untouched while others looked like black- ened matchsticks sticking up through lingering smoke. Firefighters were working in the area, using drip torches to light fires and burn out undergrowth. Deer and elk grazed in unscorched areas, while wild turkeys walked through tall grass along the road. Two miles south of Alpine, whole hillsides of ponderosa were decimated. The two Arizona-Texas power lines were still in the fire’s path, although Whittington said he was less concerned about them Friday. El Paso Electric has warned its 372,000 customers that they may see rolling black- outs if the lines are cut. The fire is the second- largest in state history and could eclipse the 2002 Rodeo-Chediski fire in size, although only a fraction of the homes have burned. The Chediski began as a signal fire and merged with the Rodeo, which was inten- tionally set by a firefighter who needed work. Together they burned 732 square miles and destroyed 491 buildings. The current Wallow Fire in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest has destroyed 31 homes or cabins, including 22 in the picturesque moun- tain community of Greer, Whittington said. Two dozen

outbuildings and a truck also were lost and five homes damaged in Greer when the fire moved in Wednesday night. A DC-10 tanker made three retardant drops near the community Thursday, and officials hope that by today the threat will be much less. Five homes were con- firmed destroyed in Alpine and Nutrioso, and fire offi- cials were trying to confirm if two others may have been lost. Much of the growth toward New Mexico has been from fires started by crews trying to burn out fuels ahead of the blaze so it can be stopped, Whittington said. That tech- nique allows the fires to be controlled and less hot. But there is little doubt it will cross the border, he said. “This fire is eventually going to get there, so we want something to check it when it does,” he said. The fire doesn’t appear to have moved into New Mexico yet, Catron County Undersheriff Ian Fletcher said. He said fire crews were cutting down trees and burn- ing fuels along U.S. 180 near the Arizona border. “I’m not sure when we’re going to get to the point of it actually getting here,” he said at midday Friday. Residents of about 100 homes in a sub- division near the border were still being kept away, and about the 200 residents of Luna were prepared to evacu- ate. Both Luna and the county seat of Reserve were being powered by a large genera- tor because of worries that electricity to the area would be cut, Fletcher said. Deputies have gone to scattered homes in a remote area known as the Blue Range on the state line south of Luna to warn people that they should leave. “Some have, some haven’t,” Fletcher said. “You always have some who say they’ll be OK and then they have to scramble and try to get out at the last minute.”

the Clean Canal Club

My husband and I are throughly enjoying our little guy Ringo. We are so proud when the cage is clean (going on 7 weeks now!) and his food bowl is licked clean. He’s more often than not a member of the CPC - Clean Plate Club. Today you all have the opportunity to become a member of a club, too. The Clean Canal Club. Today marks the annual canal cleanup before the Fourth of July celebration. Men, women and children alike will put on their work clothes, gloves and boots and pick up trash. I have seen some pretty odd things in the canal. In addition to the usual bicycles, pop bottles and plastic grocery bags, there have been toilet seats, high chairs, tires, trash cans, Christmas trees and the list goes on and on. I believe some appliances have also found their way in our waterway. Sad when you think about it. The Miami and Erie Canal started as a way for Ohioans to move goods in and out of the state in a more timely and cost-effective manner. Many a man died while digging the trench we would one day fish out of and ice skate on, oblivious to the sacrifices made to better lives. Whether you love, hate it or have no feelings one way or the other, the canal is here and needs to be cared for. I feel embarrassed when the Fourth of July rolls around and despite the effort of so many

the effort of so many NANCY SPENCER On the Other hand people who want the canal

people who want the canal to be an asset, there is still trash along the waterline. Sometimes it is there the next day after a cleanup. Tsk, tsk. When we were growing up along the canal, you were taught that nothing went in the water but a fishing pole, muskrat trap or frog gig. Trash belonged in a trash can, not in the waterway. That pretty much went for wher- ever else you were, too. (I mean the trash can thing, not the frog gig.) If we were all more conscientious, the canal could be an attractive bonus in Delphos. I know it takes work. The weeds along the sides are tenacious. But its worth it when you can look down one way or the other and notice the water or the ducks and not trash. Anyway, if you’re not doing anything this morning after you finish this and that cup of coffee, throw on some clothes you don’t care about and head to Stadium Park to help make the canal and us look a little better.

Joplin tornado survivors develop rare infection

By JiM sUHr and BiLL DrAPer Associated Press

JOPLIN, Mo. — In the aftermath of the Joplin tor- nado, some people injured in the storm developed a rare and sometimes fatal fungal

infection so aggressive that it turned their tissue black and caused mold to grow inside their wounds. Scientists say the unusual-

ly aggressive infection occurs

when dirt or vegetation becomes embedded under

the skin. In some cases, inju- ries that had been stitched up had to be reopened to clean out the contamination. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that it was conduct- ing tests to help investigate the infections, which are so uncommon that even the nation’s largest hospitals might see only one or two cases a year. “To my knowledge,

a cluster like this has not been reported before,” said Dr. Benjamin Park, head of the CDC team that investi- gates fungal diseases. “This

is a very rare fungus. And

for people who do get the disease, it can be extremely severe.”

Three tornado survivors who were hospitalized with

the infection have died, but authorities said it was unclear what role the fungus played

in their deaths because they

suffered from a host of other serious ailments. “These people had mul- tiple traumas, pneumonia, all kinds of problems,” said Dr. Uwe Schmidt, an infectious

disease specialist at Freeman Health System in Joplin. “It’s difficult to say how much the fungal infections contributed

to their demise.”

The infection develops in two ways: when the fungal spores are inhaled or when

a tree branch or other object carrying the fungus pierces the flesh. Most people who get sick

by inhaling the spores already

have weakened immune sys- tems or diabetes. But healthy people can become sick if the fungus penetrates their skin. The fungus blocks off blood vessels to the infected area, causing tissue to turn red and begin oozing. Eventually it becomes black. If diagnosed in time, the infection can be treated with intravenous medications and

surgical removal of affect- ed tissue. But it’s consid- ered exceptionally danger- ous, with some researchers reporting fatality rates of 30 percent for people infected through wounds and 50 per- cent for susceptible people who breathe it in. Small numbers of cases have been reported after some disasters, but Park said it’s the particular circum- stance of the wound — not

the disaster itself — that cre- ates the risk. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has received reports of eight suspected deep-skin fungal infections among survivors of the May 22 twister, which was the nation’s deadli- est single tornado in more than six decades. All of the patients had suffered mul- tiple injuries. Also Friday, Joplin offi- cials raised the death toll from the twister to 151, a fig- ure that includes the recent

deaths of the three people who had the fungus. Schmidt said his hospital treated five Joplin tornado victims for the infection,

which is formally known as zygomycosis (zy’-goh-my- KOH’-sihs). In 30 years of medical practice, he said, he had seen only two cases. Both involved patients with untreated diabetes. Joplin officials say more than 1,100 people have been

treated for injuries after the storm, many of them from objects sent flying by the twister. “These were very exten- sive wounds,” Schmidt said. “They were treated in the emergency room as quickly as possible.” A week after the tornado, patients began arriving with

fungal infections. Doctors had to reopen some wounds that had been stitched closed because the injuries had not been ade- quately cleaned, Schmidt said. After the infections set in, doctors “could visibly see mold in the wounds,” Schmidt said. “It rapidly spread. The tissue dies off and becomes black. It doesn’t have any circulation. It has to be removed.” The fungus “invades the underlying tissue and actu- ally invades the underlying blood vessels and cuts off the circulation to the skin,” he said. “It’s very invasive.”

Saudi Arabia production boost sends oil lower

NEW YORK (AP) — Saudi Arabia’s still the boss when it comes to oil. The world’s biggest oil exporter plans to increase pro- duction to 10 million barrels per day, the highest level in 30 years, according to a Saudi Arabian newspaper. Analysts see this as a bold step by the Saudis to reassert their domi- nance over OPEC after the 12-member group this week denied its request to increase production. “They’re reminding every- one who the sheriff is in town,” independent analyst Jim Ritterbusch said. Oil prices sank 2.6 percent

delivery lost $2.64 to settle at $99.29 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. That erased most of the gains that followed OPEC’s meeting

The last time Saudi Arabia produced that much oil was August 1981, according to the Energy Information Administration. The Saudis have maintained that oil prices are too high, even after a recent decline. At the end of April, oil was up 25 percent for the year and U.S. gasoline prices were up 28 per- cent, near an average of $4 per gallon. Americans have cut back on driving to compensate, according to industry surveys.

An organization that stayed intact during the Iran-Iraq War and the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait can certainly make it through this, Gheit said.

Man gets life in prison for 1993 child rape

TOLEDO (AP) — An Ohio man convicted of the 1993 attack and rape of a 10-year-old girl who was riding her bike in a wood- ed area was sentenced Friday to life in prison with parole eligibility. Bradley Roberts, 44, was indicted in November and found guilty by a jury on May 10 of one count each of rape, kidnapping and gross sexual imposi- tion in the attack on the girl in Sylvania Township near Toledo. The victim, now 28, was tearful as her attacker was sentenced in Lucas County Common Pleas Court, The Blade of Toledo reported. She didn’t speak during the court hearing, but later told the newspaper that she was relieved that man who eluded authorities for near- ly two decades was being held accountable and that she had “never thought he would be found.” The victim had testified that she was riding her bike to fields about a mile from her home when she was attacked and raped. She said it was the first time she had been given per- mission to go somewhere alone. The man covered her face and threatened her not to tell, she said. Roberts was charged in the case after a test of the DNA found on the girl identified him as a suspect through DNA collected from him in other convic- tions. A DNA analyst tes- tified that Roberts’ DNA was found to be “consis- tent” with the DNA on the victim and that the likelihood of anyone else having the profile was one in 1.197 billion. Judge James Jensen imposed the mandatory sentence of life for rape because the victim was less than 13 years old, but Roberts was sentenced under the law in place at the time of the crime and will be eligible for parole in 10 years. Roberts also was sen- tenced to 10 to 25 years for kidnapping, to run concurrently, and 4 to 10 years on the gross sexual imposition charge, to run consecutively. The attorney appointed to handle Roberts’ appeal did not immediately return calls Friday.

Landmark to be destroyed for casino parking

CLEVELAND (AP) — Despite objections from preservationists, a panel in Cleveland has agreed to demolish a century-old office building to provide parking for the city’s new casino. Thursday’s vote by the Cleveland Landmarks Commission was a close 4-3. The eight-story Columbia Building will come down and will be replaced by valet park- ing for the nearby casino, going into downtown’s old Higbee department store. The Plain Dealer newspaper reports Cleveland Councilman Joe Cimperman warned com- mission members that if they delayed the demoli- tion it could put the casino project in jeopardy. President Kathleen Crowther of the Cleveland Restoration Society lamented the loss of the Columbia Building, a des- ignated city landmark. She said once it’s gone, it can’t be rebuilt. The Cleveland casino is one of four approved by Ohio voters in 2009.

One of the most popular displays at the Canal Commission Museum is the Bridal Display, which features dresses from the 1890s through the 1950s. Although they are beautiful to look at, they also reflect the changes and events of our society. Early weddings in America were gen- erally private affairs, held at the home of the parents of the bride or groom, with an announcement being made in church the following Sunday. Most wed- ding dresses were made at home or, for the wealthy, by a dressmaker. As the Industrial Revolution (1820-1870) pro- gressed, a definite middle class sprang up; and by the 1890’s almost every bride that so desired could be married in a “new” wedding dress. The turn of the century saw wedding dresses become increasingly more elabo- rate until the onset of World War I when supplies were limited. At that time styles became simpler and also reflected the changing role of women in society with hems getting shorter. The typical 1920’s dress was a white knee-length dress that was worn with a long train. A cloche- style wedding veil was also worn. During the Great Depression, brides either wore their best dress for the wed- ding or purchased something practical that could also be worn after the wed-

ding. Sometimes it would be a white dress that would be dyed a darker color and sometimes it was simply a suit. Women felt it was their duty to give up the traditional wedding during World War II. Another factor was the last min- ute marriage proposals before a soldier was shipped overseas, which did not leave enough time to plan a big ceremo- ny. With the entire nation behind the war effort, a new dress was almost impos- sible to find anyway, so again, the best dress or suit had to do. If both the bride and the groom were in the military they were married in their uniforms. The 1950s was a time of prosperity and wedding dresses included a lot of

lace, thanks to the end of wartime restric- tions on fabric. They were fashioned after the popular qualities (for women) of the day: sensibility, modesty and femininity. The social upheaval during the 1960s caused many brides to reject the cookie- cutter standards of the 50s and opt instead for attire (not always a dress) that was unique to them and reflected their per- sonality. It wasn’t until Princess Diana’s wedding in 1981 that the traditional wed- ding dress came back into vogue as each

Ohio’s adult smoking rate increases after years of decline

COLUMBUS — Ohio’s adult smoking rate for 2010, just released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, was 22.5 percent, increased from 20.3 percent in 2009. This rate increase ends a long trend of declining tobacco use. The increase comes as no surprise to tobacco-pre- vention advocates who have been warning of an increase in smoking rates since funds for tobacco prevention and cessation programs have been cut from the state bud- get. “It’s disturbing to see years of progress begin- ning to reverse because of a lack of investment in programs that saved lives and employed hundreds of Ohioans,” said Shelly Kiser, director of advocacy, American Lung Association of Ohio. “Now, thousands more Ohioans’ lives are at risk and the state will be paying even more to treat tobacco-related illnesses.” Since May 2008, when the majority of funds from the Master Settlement Agreement were taken from tobacco prevention and ces- sation programming, only minimal sums, insufficient to make an impact on smok- ing rates, have been allo- cated to tobacco prevention and cessation, and most community tobacco preven- tion and cessation programs throughout the state have been dismantled because of a lack of funding. The cur- rent version of the upcom- ing biennial state budget, now in conference commit- tee, includes no funding for tobacco prevention and ces- sation programming. Annually, smoking costs Ohio $4.37 billion for health care, $1.4 billion of which is the portion covered by the state Medicaid program (More than 40 percent of Medicaid recipients in Ohio smoke, almost twice the state rate). Productivity loss- es account for another $4.85 billion in tobacco-related costs to the state. Including both the federal and state tax burden, the average Ohio household pays $618 per year from smoking-caused government expenditures. “Our increasing smoking rate is preventing us from reaching our goal of being the family- and employer- friendly state we want to be,” said Kiser. “Without funding for tobacco preven- tion and cessation in the

state budget, Ohio taxpay- ers will continue to foot the bill for increasing tobacco- related costs in Ohio. ”Currently, the state budget has $0 allocated to tobacco prevention and ces- sation, which means there is no money to enforce the Smoke-Free Workplace Act, provide cessation counsel- ing using the Ohio Quitline beyond a minimal amount mandated federally for preg- nant women or provide com- munity or in-school preven- tion or cessation programs. “There is a simple solu- tion to this problem. By fix- ing a loophole in the dif- ference between the tax on cigarettes and non-cigarette forms of tobacco, the leg- islature can generate funds to bring programs back and, once again, send our smok- ing rates into a decline,” said Kiser. “We call on the legislature to fix this loophole and fund preven- tion to prevent yet another generation of Ohio’s youth from becoming addicted to tobacco.”

About The Investing in Tobacco-Free Youth Coalition The Investing in Tobacco- Free Youth Coalition brings together a diverse group of organizations with a com- mon goal of reducing the toll that tobacco takes on the peopleofOhio.TheCoalition is seeking to make “other tobacco products” – includ- ing spit tobacco, little cigars and cigars – less appealing to youth by correcting the inequity between the other tobacco products tax and the cigarette tax. The campaign is a coalition of more than 60 businesses and health organizations including the American Lung Association, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, Association of Ohio Health Commissioners, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Children’s Defense Fund, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio Health, Ohio State Medical Association and Universal Healthcare Action Network (UHCAN) Ohio.

T his and That by HELEN KAVERMAN Millie’s garden Millie Ruen’s marigolds and sweet potato plants

Millie Ruen’s marigolds and sweet potato plants around the pond.

Millie Ruen lives in a gar- den. Her cozy little country home near Ottoville, is sur- rounded by beautiful flowers, trees, shrubs and vegetables. She doesn’t have to worry about mowing a big lawn but she is very passionate about all the plants and trees, which surround her home. Just take a Sunday drive down Road 24, between Ottoville and Fort Jennings and you will notice this land of color — changing color, depending on which flowers are in bloom. You can’t miss this oasis, because it covers three acres of gardening. Her array of plants includes perennials and annuals, such as marigolds, peonies, allium, petunias, begonias, zennias, lilies, iris, Siberian iris, salvia, rudbeckia (Indian Summer), lavender, cocks combs, gera- niums dahlias, celosia, yarrow, calenda, coleus, wisteria, tanzy, hollyhocks, hostas, mums and more. There is always some- thing blooming in her garden from spring until fall. Millie has some Knock-out Roses but she shies away from floribun- da and tea roses because of all the spraying they require. Last year Millie grew a 14 foot sun- flower, with over 900 blooms. Her drive-way is lined with yellow and orange marigolds, which she started from seed under the grow lights in her basement. Millie started 30 flats of flowers under light this year. She is a big believer in composting, which produces notable results in her plants. Millie also has a large veg- etable garden, which includes:

tomatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic, beans, peas, celery, cab- bage, carrots, radishes, sweet corn and even popcorn. Millie was born to Aloysius and Loretta (Hilvers) Ruen on their farm near Ottoville. She has four brothers and four sisters. They are Paul, Fred, Roger and Joe Ruen, Marilyn Calvelage, Catherine Heitz, Irene Bullard and Mary Honigford. Her brothers and sisters have provided her with many nieces and nephews. Each year at Christmas, Millie sends out a letter, but it is not your typical Holiday letter. In her letter, she tells fam- ily stories of when they were growing up. They are very interesting. Millie shares her country home with her trusty little watch dog, Jock. Millie graduated from Ottoville High School in 1959 and is a 1963 gradu- ate of Mary Manse College in Toledo. She taught school two years in Toledo and then moved to Columbus, where she taught 29 years in the inner city schools. While living in Columbus, she played ASA softball

and AAU basketball. Her Columbus softball team, the “Red Birds” won the state championships during her first and second years with the team. The Red Birds earned a spot at the Nationals in Wisconsin and North Carolina. Millie was cho- sen a National All Star during the tournament in Sheboygan. She played left field and had a really good arm. Millie played college bas- ketball at Mary Manse, and

then went on to play semi- pro basketball in Columbus. Her team earned a spot at the Women’s National Tourney in Gallup, New Mexico. While at Mary Manse, the girls played the old time “half court” game — three on offense and three on defense. Millie retired from teaching and returned to Ottoville in May of 1997. She lived in her basement while construction of the house was completed

on top of her. Her home is located on a portion of the family farm. Since returning to Ottoville, she has been active in church and county activities. She achieved her Master Gardener (of Putnam County) certificate in 1998 and has been a trustee on the Putnam County Historical Society since 1998. Millie took over the position of archivist at the Immaculate Conception Church Museum, upon the death of Rita Turnwald. She was chairman of the committee that compiled and published the Putnam County History & Families and serves on other committees for the historical society, such as the Historical Church Tour and the booth at the Putnam County Fair. Millie has two ponds on her property. The one measures 2/3 of an acre and has fish in it. The other is a smaller frog pond with no fish, because the fish would eat the little tadpoles. She has the big pond surrounded by flowers, with sweet potato plants draping the banks. However, this spring the rabbits have been real pests, by eating the sweet potato plants.

In two weeks we will visit Millie’s garden again to learn about her many varieties of trees and shrub, along with the com- posting she does.

St. Rita’s Professional Services moves to downtown Lima

LIMA — St. Rita’s Professional Services has moved into its new corpo- rate offices at 300 W. Market St. in downtown Lima, a move that is consistent with St. Rita’s goal to support the revitalization and investment in the downtown area. “This move offers St. Rita’s Health Partners the opportu- nity to continue playing a key role in the growth and revital- ization of Downtown Lima. It also helps us further our mis- sion to improve the health of our communities by working and having a presence within those communities we serve. I believe what’s good for Lima

is good for St. Rita’s and vice versa,” Chief Operating Officer of St. Rita’s Health Partners Brian Smith said. According to St. Rita’s

ProfessionalServicesExecutive Director David Murphy, the

move also offers space for the “anticipated continued growth of St. Rita’s Professional Services, for support person- nel and training programs, as well as for new technology. The location is also proximal

to our physician offices and the

Medical Center.” St. Rita’s Professional Services’ mission is to serve the residents of West Central Ohio by providing access to

quality physician services. St. Rita’s Professional Services is part of St. Rita’s Health Partners. Formerly located at 2615 Fort Amanda Road, Lima, St. Rita’s Professional Services was organized in January 2008 and quickly grew as

a result of St. Rita’s Health

Partners strategic recruitment efforts and to support phy- sicians seeking employment. Approximately one third of St. Rita’s Professional Services providers were recruited from outside St. Rita’s primary ser- vice area and thereby created upwards of 60 new jobs in

Allen County. In 2011, St. Rita’s Professional Services will provide over 100,000 patient visits in its offices. St. Rita’s Professional Services employs 78 physi- cians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. These providers represent 13 board certified medical specialties in 16 physician offices, who provide care at St. Rita’s Medical Center, staff St. Rita’s Hospitalist Program, 6 outreach locations and three

urgent care centers.

NWO shuts out WBL in All-Star Clash

S PORTS NWO shuts out WBL in All-Star Clash St. John’s Jordan Leininger prepares to take

St. John’s Jordan Leininger prepares to take on a couple of WBL defenders during the All-Star Clash in Van Wert Friday.




VAN WERT — The Van Wert County Hospital All- Star Football Clash can mean that former rivals — even archrivals — become fast friends. It can mean that players are in different positions —

like St. John’s guard-turned- tight end Joey Grubenhoff

— than they have ever played

before. There are only bragging rights on the line as many of the 66 seniors suited up are doing so for the final time, which means that the com-

petitive juices are flowing. Once the 12th annu- al game got underway at Eggress Field in Van Wert — postponed 20 minutes due to lightning but leaving

a perfect night for football

— the Northwest Ohio team

(combined Midwest Athletic Conference and Northwest Conference) dominated their bigger-school counterparts from the Western Buckeye League, shutting them out


It was the largest margin

of victory in the series as the

NWO got revenge for 2009’s 32-0 whitewash. With the likes of defenders such as Jefferson end Kody Richardson and cornerback Logan Bonifas and St. John’s end Derek Klaus, free safety Tyler Bergfeld and strong safety Tyler Ditto, the small- school team held the WBLers

to 84 yards of total offense, minus-2 rushing (29 tries). “The coaches just told us to read our keys and trust our instincts. There wasn’t a lot of time to do much else,” Richardson noted. “It was a lot of fun playing with some of the same guys I did in midget football, as well as playing on the same team with a lot of guys I played against in junior high and high school.”

One of the major stories for the WBL was Shawnee’s Jamiil Williams being forced to play under center as Van Wert’s Corey Clifton was out with an industrial accident suffered at work Wednesday. The NWO — with Ada’s Robert Guyton and Allen East’s Demetrious Williams controlling the inside — sacked him seven times for minus-65 yards and limited

him to 11-of-25 passing for

86 yards. The small-schoolers reached WBL space — where they would spend much of the contest — on the first possession before turning the ball over on downs. However, they got the first turnover — and as sack by Klaus — four plays later as Richardson recov- ered a Williams fumble at the WBL 36. Three plays hence at the 23, St. John’s Jordan Leininger (13 rushes, game-high 99 yards) faked LCC’s Bubba Krieg to the right side and found a gaping hole opened up by teammate- sy Austin Vogt (left tackle)

and Alex Recker (center) and Columbus Grove left guard Greg Martin and jetted for the end zone, powering the final five yards. Ada’s Austin Everhart added the conver- sion for a 7-0 edge with 5:13 showing in the first. “It was a physical game — there are so many talented players — but it was a lot of fun to play quarterback the final time. Our offensive line was just great,” Leininger noted. “There was a lot of jawing out there but the good thing was that at the end, it

got all cleared up. It just goes

to show what kind of athletes

we have in this area.” An interception by Shawnee’s Ryan Bechtel

stopped the next NWO drive

at the WBL 6. They couldn’t

stop the ensuing one after a punt gave them the ball at the WBL 38. Leininger, in the shotgun, ran a straight keeper to the left side and found a huge hole, speeding to the end zone. Everhart’s PAT made it 14-0 at the 10:50 mark of the second quarter. Special teams came into

the picture on the next posses- sion. Lima Central Catholic’s Rufus Johnson gathered in Van Wert’s Donny Sites’ punt at his 30, made a quick move on the left hash and got a bunch of open space

to the end zone. It was only

the second punt return for a TD in the series, the first for the small-school team, and Everhart made it 21-0 with 8:06 on the second-quarter


The small-schoolers got another break as Richardson forced another Williams fumble and Klaus recovered

at the WBL 36. However, the

NWO couldn’t take advan- tage — due to a penalty —

giving the ball over on downs

at the 34.

The WBL reached oppos- ing space for the first time,

even faking a punt for a first down, before giving the ball over on downs at the NWO


Bechtel’s second pick deep in WBL space ended the first half. The WBL got a break on their first series of the second half as a Williams fumble was nearly recovered twice by the NWO before the ball was knocked out of the end zone for a touchback. However, they went nowhere. With LCC’s Bubba Krieg

Jefferson defensive end Kody Richardson (playing for Northwest Ohio) prepares to sack Shawnee’s Jamiil Williams (the Western Buckeye League) in Friday night’s All- Star Clash at Eggress Field in Van Wert. With plays like this — with St. John’s Derek Klaus moving in on the action — the NWO shut out the WBL 38-0.

getting five carries for 20 yards on the 8-play drive, the small-schoolers ended their 40-yard drive with a 25-yard Everhart field goal for a 24-0 margin with 4:51 showing in the third. The WBL again used a fake punt for a first down to try and get something going

but once more couldn’t take advantage. The small-school team then drove from its 25 to the WBL 4 in 11 plays but a personal foul set them back and Minster head coach Nate Moore and his staff set up for a 37-yard field goal by Everhart, only to see holder Bergfeld try a pass that was

picked off by Ryan Sawmiller at the WBL 3. The WBL garnered oppos- ing space but a 4th-and-5 run

by Williams was stuffed by Richardson and Klaus at the


Leininger (8-of-17 pass- ing, 140 yards) then connect- ed with fellow Blue Jay Evan Burgei (2 catches, 58 yards) for 56 yards. Burgei (10 rush- es, 43 yards) then ran for four and finished off the quick drive with a 1-yard burst over left guard. Everhart’s conver- sion made it 31-0 with 4:57 left. Getting the ball back on downs at the WBL 27, it took one play: a Leininger fade pass to Ada’s Alex Weber (2 grabs, 56 yards) to the right

side of the end zone; to finish off the scoring at 3:36 after Everhart’s point-after. Richardson and Leininger summed up the feeling for many players who will con- tinue their gridiron careers at the collegiate level. “It was a good thing to get back into the practice rou- tine for a couple of days and the hitting. It just helps you get back into that mindset of working out and gets you more ready for pre-season camp,” Richardson added. Other Tri-County area players in their final high school game for the NWO were Grubenhoff (1 catch, 3 yards), St. John’s AJ Klausing (1 catch, 6 yards) and line- backer Dylan Dancer; and Grove’s Spencer Wolfe (line- man) and skill player Jacob Miller). St. John’s Chris Pohlman and Spencerville’s Levi Krouskop didn’t play due to injury. Elida’s Rikki Le (receiv- er), Alex McAdams (end), Ross Harmon (lineman), Tyler Thompson (lineman) and Nate Sackinger (line- man) and Van Wert’s Cory Hirschy (center/linebacker) and Zach Keirns (end) fin- ished their careers for the WBLers.

A-Rod, Yankees beat Indians 11-7 in testy game

By MIKE FITZPATRICK The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez hit a colossal home run, Curtis Granderson also connected and the New York Yankees got back on track with an 11-7 victory over the skid- ding Cleveland Indians in a game that quickly grew testy Friday night. Yankees manager Joe Girardi and Cleveland coun- terpart Manny Acta got into a

face-to-face screaming match when both benches and bullpens emptied after Mark Teixeira was hit by a second-inning fastball from struggling Indians starter Fausto Carmona. No punches were thrown and there appeared to be little pushing and shoving — if any. Plate umpire Dale Scott issued warnings to both teams and there was no further trouble. Ivan Nova (5-4) pitched seven sharp innings for New York and Derek Jeter had one

hit to move within nine of 3,000. Jorge Posada, breaking out of a season-long slump,

added three hits and an RBI on

a night when his figurine was handed out to fans. One of them sat on a ledge near the Yankees dugout as

he singled home a run to cap

a 3-run first. Posada has four

straight multihit games, raising his average from .169 to .215. Bouncing back from a 3-game sweep by the rival Red Sox, New York sent a wild Carmona (3-8) to his fifth straight loss and finished with 15 hits. The Yankees had dropped 10 out of 14 at home. Robinson Cano had three hits and an RBI and Teixeira stroked a 3-run double that made it 10-2 in the seventh. Rodriguez followed with an RBI double. In the fourth, the 3-time MVP hit his 625th career homer into the second row of bleacher seats in left-center. The ball sailed some 450 feet, beyond

a loading-bay ramp that sits between Monument Park and the visitors’ bullpen. Yankees staff members could not remember a home

run ever reaching that area at the new stadium, which opened

in 2009.

Carlos Santana homered for the Indians, barely clinging to first place in the AL Central. Coming off a 1-6 homestand,

they have lost 12 out of 16 overall. The opener of a 4-game series was the first meeting this season between the teams.

Red Sox 5, Blue Jays 1 TORONTO — Clay Buchholz allowed three hits over seven innings, Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for -5 with three runs scored and Boston beat Toronto 5-1 on Friday night, the Red Sox’s seventh straight win to match their season high. Buchholz (5-3) struck out six and walked two as he ended a career-long run of four straight no-decisions. AL RBI leader Adrian Gonzalez drove in a run with a fifth-inning single. He drove in another run with a ground-rule double off reliever Shawn Camp in the ninth that made it 5-1. Kevin Youkilis and Dustin Pedroia drove in a run each for Boston, which improved

its league-best record to 37-26. Pedroia finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for Toronto starter Jo-Jo Reyes (2-5) and dropped the Blue Jays to .500

DETROIT — Carlos Peguero homered and tripled starting in place of Ichiro Suzuki

in right field for Seattle.

The struggling Suzuki was given the night off. Peguero, a rookie playing his 26th major- league game, helped Seattle overcome a 2-1 deficit. He tripled in the fifth and scored the tying run. Then in the sev-

enth, he hit a towering fly ball down the right-field line off Brad Penny (5-5) that stayed

a few feet fair as it went over

the wall. Chris Ray (3-1) pitched the sixth and seventh innings for Seattle. David Pauley worked the eighth and Brandon League the ninth for his 18th save. Victor Martinez hit a 2-run homer, one of only five hits for Detroit. Detroit is 9-3 in its last 12 games. Orioles 7, Rays 0 BALTIMORE — Nick Markakis broke a prolonged power slump with a grand slam and a 2-run double and Jake Arrieta took a no-hitter into the sixth inning for surging Baltimore. J.J. Hardy hit his second leadoff homer for the Orioles, who have won four straight to get within a victory of .500 (31- 32). Hardy reached base all five trips to the plate and scored three runs. Markakis’ third career slam, off rookie Jeremy Hellickson (7-4), put Baltimore up 5-0 in the second inning. Markakis had gone 88 at-bats without an

extra-base hit. He drove in two runs in the eighth to establish a career high with six RBIs. Arrieta (8-3) walked two before Sam Fuld led off the sixth with a double. He allowed two hits over seven innings and moved into a tie with Boston’s Jon Lester for the AL lead in

wins. Mike Gonzalez worked a 30-pitch ninth to complete the


Athletics 7, White Sox 5 CHICAGO — Scott Sizemore hit a go-ahead 3-run

double in the ninth inning to rally Oakland, which ended a 10-game losing streak. The A’s won their first game under Bob Melvin. Oakland made the majors’ first manage- rial change of 2011 by firing Bob Geren after 4-plus seasons

Thursday. Trailing 5-3 in the ninth, White Sox closer Sergio Santos (2-3) retired the first two batters and had Josh Willingham in an 0-2 count before walking him. Hideki Matsui followed with an RBI single to cut the lead to a run. Santos walked Daric Barton and hit Kurt Suzki to load the bases. Sizemore then split the left-center gap to give the Athletics a 7-5 lead. Grant Balfour (4-1) pitched

a scoreless eighth for the victory and Andrew Bailey pitched a perfect ninth. Paul Konerko hit a 2-run homer and A.J. Pierzynski had three hits for the White Sox. Rangers 9, Twins 3 MINNEAPOLIS — Michael Young had three hits and three RBIs and Adrian Beltre added two hits and drove in two for Texas. The Rangers sent 11 batters to the plate and scored a season- high seven runs in the second inning. C.J. Wilson (7-3) allowed three runs and eight hits in seven innings. Brian Duensing (3-6) lasted two innings and allowed seven runs (3 earned) and seven hits for the Twins. Sal Butera had

a career-high three hits and an

RBI for Minnesota and Michael Cuddyer had two hits and an RBI.

From the Ohio Division of Natural Resources CENTRAL OHIO Delaware Lake (Delaware County) - This 1,017-acre lake north of Columbus consistently provides quality crappie fish- ing. Crappies move to deeper areas with cover as the water temperature warms; try fishing drop-offs with stumps or other wood; these must be 9 inches or longer to keep. Channel catfish can be caught in cut baits and shrimp, especially in the upper part of the lake. For largemouth bass, fish shoreline cover, riprap and second- ary drop-offs with crankbaits, tubes and creature baits; these must be 12 inches or longer to keep. Kokosing Lake (Knox County) - This 149-acre lake is limited to outboard motors of 10 horsepower or less. Largemouth bass are being caught around shoreline cover and along the dam using crankbaits and tubes. Bluegill are in shallow areas, try wax worms or night crawlers under a bobber. Crappies have moved to deeper water. Use minnows or crappie jigs fished under a slip bobber around cover or the old creek channel for best results. Channel catfish can be caught on chicken livers, shrimp, or night crawlers fished on the bottom. NORTHWEST OHIO Ottawa Reservoir (Putnam County) – Bluegill are being caught in the mornings by casting a wax worm or a white twister tail grub. The south dike is producing the best catches. Ferguson Reservoir (Allen County)

– Bluegill are being caught during the daytime by still-fishing wax worms, night- crawlers and crickets or by casting jigs. Near the boat ramp is the best spot. Crappies are also being taken in good numbers, being caught mornings, after- noons and evenings by still-fishing wax worms, nightcrawlers and crickets, or by casting jigs. The east and south banks seem to be the best spots for crappies. Lost Creek Reservoir (Allen County)

– Saugeye are being taken at all times of

the day and night by drifting nightcrawlers and leeches and by troll- ing bottom-bouncers and worm harnesses all over the reservoir. Bressler Reservoir (Allen County) – Channel catfish are being taken at all times of the day and night by still-fishing, using slip bobbers, or bal- loon-fishing nightcrawl- ers and shrimp all over the reservoir. Walleye are also being taken dur- ing the dawn, dusk and night; fishing leeches and nightcrawlers under a slip bobber is working well, as is drifting or trolling worm harnesses and shallow crankbaits. The east and south banks seem to be producing the best catches. NORTHEAST OHIO Spencer Lake (Medina County) – A few reports of evening catfish bites have begun to trickle in; look for the bite to turn on full swing in the next week or so. This 78-acre lake provides ample shoreline opportunity to hook into these nighttime fishing delights. Catfish are bottom feed- ers that rely mainly on their sense of smell to find food; the stinkier the bait, the better. Try a nightcrawler, sticky dough baits, cut bait, or chicken liver on bottom for best results. Shreve Lake (Wayne County) - The catfish bite is picking up on this 62-acre lake as well; target these fish the same way as mentioned above. The bass bite has been solid with a few Fish Ohio!-sized bass being reported. Action has been most consistent by anglers using chartreuse- and shad-colored spinner baits. Zepernick Lake (Columbiana County) - Leaping to another type of report, frog season opened Friday and will run through April 30, 2012. Only bullfrogs and green frogs may be legally taken; not more than 10 may be taken or possessed at any time. Frogs may not be shot except with a long- bow and arrow; this lake and surrounding water can offer some exciting late-night action. Enjoy the season and be safe! SOUTHWEST OHIO Acton Lake (Preble County) – Good numbers of channel catfish are being caught using shrimp, cut bait and chicken livers fished on the bottom under a bob- ber or by tight-lining baits on the bottom. Successful catfish areas include the more shallow waters near the boat ramp or along the dam; night fishing produces the best results. Bluegill 6-8 inches in length are being taken on red or wax worms fished around woody cover found in 6- to 15-foot depths. Great Miami River & Twin Creek (Montgomery County) - The GMR is producing many saugeye and walleye. Although not large in size, many 10- to 12-inch fish are being caught. Methods vary by location and experience but min- nows are really hot now; try them under a small jig and with a twister tail fished fair-

ly slowly along the bottom, a great com- bination for about anything in the river, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, saugeye/walleye and channel catfish. Twin Creek is a pristine smallmouth loca- tion; use a canoe, kayak or jump on in with your old shoes or waders for some

hot action. Tube baits are popular, as well as crayfish imitations, minnows or small spinners. When the river is at normal pool


the best and safest time to fish/boat and


is easy to find the deep pools; the big

fish lay in these pools to keep cool, so give these spots a try. SOUTHEAST OHIO Veto Lake (Washington County) – Crappie, sunfish, catfish and largemouth bass have all been biting at this 160-acre lake. For crappie, fish a minnow under

a bobber at 2 feet off the bottom along

woody vegetation. For sunfish, try worms

or minnows under a bobber; the best loca-

tions have been near the picnic shelter and the boat ramp. Fish for largemouth bass using crankbaits – green colors hold this week’s popular vote; cast out along banks, quick drop-offs and vegetated areas

and reel in slowly. Channel catfish can be fished for at night using cut baits, chicken livers and nightcrawlers; several have been reeled in weighing 8-12 pounds. Tycoon Lake (Gallia County) – An 18-inch minimum length limit is in effect on this 204-acre lake and helps to produce top-quality largemouth bass angling; use rubber worms or spinner baits along the old fencerows or over other submerged

structure. Bluegill have been caught on

jigs and wax worms fished a few feet deep. For dusk to dawn fishing, fish for channel cats using chicken livers, nightcrawlers or other cut bait in shallow areas. LAKE ERIE The daily bag limit for walleye is 6 fish; the minimum size limit is 15 inches. The daily limit for yellow perch is 30 per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie.

The steelhead limit is 5 per angler

through Aug. 31; the minimum size limit

is 12 inches. The Lake Erie black

bass (largemouth and small- mouth) limit is closed to possession through June 24. Western Basin: Walleye fishing is improving and has been best around West Sister Island, off of Niagara Reef, N of West Reef, E of North Bass Island on the Canadian border and along the Canadian border E of Gull Island Shoal. Fish have been caught by trolling with divers and spoons, in-line weights and worm harnesses and crankbaits. Fish can also be caught by casting mayfly rigs or drifting with bottom-bouncers and worm harnesses. Yellow perch fishing has been best E

of Ballast Island, E of the Kelleys Island airport and S of Gull Island Shoal using minnows on perch-spreaders fished near the bottom. Central Basin: Walleye has been good NW of Lorain in 46 feet of water, 48-50 feet N of Rocky River, 32-38 feet and 52-56 feet N of Edgewater Park, 32-42 feet NW of Fairport and 47 feet NW of Geneva. Anglers are using stick baits such as rapalas, husky jerks and bombers, as well as spoons and worm harnesses. Yellow perch fishing has been very good at 35-40 feet NW of Gordon Park

in Cleveland, 28-38 feet NE of Wildwood

State Park, 42-52 feet NW of Fairport, 35-40 feet N of Geneva and 47-53 feet NW of Ashtabula. Perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Shore anglers are catching fish off East 55 St. Pier in Cleveland and Headlands Beach Pier out at the light- house. Anglers are using spreaders with shiners in the mornings have been best. Smallmouth bass fishing has been very good in 15-25 feet around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut using soft-craws, leeches, dark green and red tube jigs, blade baits and crank baits. Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating. OHIO RIVER Meldahl Dam to Cincinnatti (Clermont/Hamilton counties) – Channel catfish are being taken in good numbers; try chicken livers, shrimp, or nightcrawl- ers fished on the bottom. Greenup Dam (Scioto County) – Anglers along the concrete walkway and the riprap of the Greenup tail waters have had fair success fishing hybrid-striped bass and white bass using cut skipjack or live shad. Successful artificial baits included white jigs with a 3-inch twister tail. Sauger fishing has been fair with average catches ranging from 8-14 inches. Water clarity has been murky at times dur- ing rainfall events.

Alisha Anthony earned

a number of honors dur-

ing her track and field career at Youngstown State University. For example, the 2006 graduate of St. John’s High

School and the 2011 graduate

of YSU was Horizon League

Scholar-Athlete of the Month

for April this spring, as well as being named a 2-time Horizon League Field Athlete

of the Week this outdoor track

season. She was named to the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Horizon League Academic All-League team for Indoor Track & Field and to the 2009 and 2011 Horizon League Academic All-League team for Outdoor Track & Field.

She helped Youngstown State’s women’s track & field team finish runner-up at the 2011 Horizon League Track

& Field Championships, win-

ning the long jump and triple jump events at the All-Ohio

Championships and placing fourth in both events at the prestigous Penn Relays.

At the Duke Invitational, she won the long jump, recording a leap of 5.75 meters and took fourth-place

in the triple jump.

She set the school’s long- jump mark of 6.02 meters

(19-9) at the Sea Ray Relays

in the 2010 outdoor season,

qualifying for the NCAA East Regional (finishing 41st), as well as setting the school’s triple-jump mark of 40-3 1/2 at the 2009 league champion-

ships. She was named the Field Newcomer of the Year in

the 2008 outdoor season (as

a medical redshirt) and as

a freshman in the 2006-07

indoor season. However, with her 19-5 1/4 jump at the NCAA East Regionals late in May, she

ended her collegiate career. “They take the top 12

to the nationals. I was four

inches away from making the nationals, so I am done,” Anthony, daughter of Stephen and Margaret Anthony of Ohio City, began. “My track career is over. I graduated with a degree in exercise sci- ence and I plan to go on for my doctorate in physical therapy; that will take me three years in the program

here. I also plan to help out as a coach while I’m continuing my education.” Though her active track career is over, her running

is not.

“Out of my eight broth-

ers and sisters, they were all long-distance runners. My dad has competed in mara- thons and that’s what I plan to do; start preparing for 5K and 10K races,” she explained. “I was the only one in the family that ‘had’ to go for sprinting and jumping, so now I’ll be going to them for advice in

how to prepare for the longer distances.” That is a far cry from what she did in high school and

college. She did the 100- and 200-meter sprints in high school and the outdoor col- lege season, adding the 55- and 60-meter indoor races at the next level. She was a

a 2-time winner and 2-time

runner-up in the long jump, setting the Division III state mark of 18-9 1/2 as a junior, and helped anchor the 400- and 800-meter relays that

qualified to state numerous times. She was also a state-cali- ber gymnast early in her high school career.

“I’m satisfied with my career. I got better each year

in each event in college,” she

added. “I’m glad it’s over because between indoor and outdoor season, as well as off-season training, it’s all

year around. It’s a good expe- rience to go through. I have

a lot of good memories and

made a lot of good friends along the way but it’s time to move on.”

Game 5, knowing Boston goalie

Tim Thomas couldn’t stop him- self from reacting to it. The next moment was a study in hockey geometry. The puck caromed off the boards behind Thomas’ net to the far side, where Maxim Lapierre gratefully banged it into the only sliver of net Thomas couldn’t cover. That’s how goals are scored against two goalies who look unbeatable. That’s why the resourceful Canucks are one win away from hoisting the Stanley Cup for the first time. Lapierre scored the only goal with 15:25 to play, Roberto Luongo stopped 31 shots in a

stirring shutout after getting pulled from his last game and the Canucks took a 3-2 series lead with a 1-0 victory over the Bruins in Game 5 on Friday night. The Canucks have scored just six goals in five Stanley Cup finals games against the brilliant Thomas, yet they’re one victory away from their first NHL championship. Thomas was almost perfect in Game 5 after shutting out the Canucks in Game 4 but Luongo was thrilled

after Bieksa and Lapierre used the Boston star’s aggressive style against him to manufac- ture a historic goal. Game 6 is Monday night in

Boston and the Stanley Cup will

be there.

Luongo posted his fourth shutout of the playoffs and second of the Stanley Cup finals after a pregame walk on Vancouver’s picturesque sea- wall to clear his mind. Luongo was pulled from Game 4 but coach Alain Vigneault stuck with him for Game 5. The Olympic cham- pion was only occasionally

spectacular but he still narrowly outplayed Thomas, who has received just two goals of sup- port from his teammates in three games in Vancouver. Neither team found an offen- sive flow in a Game 5 nail-biter but Luongo kept Vancouver in

it until Lapierre’s goal set off

a crazy celebration among tens

of thousands of fans thronging

downtown Vancouver. After Vancouver’s Tanner Glass missed a backhand on an open

net one period earlier, Lapierre was more than ready to put

it behind Thomas for just his

second goal of the postseason,

pumping both fists frenetically

in celebration. Lapierre was a late-season

acquisition who largely serves as an agitator for the Canucks, not

a scorer. He’s never managed

more than 15 goals in a season and he had just six this sea- son while playing for Montreal, Anaheim and Vancouver.

Thomas made 24 saves in Game 5 but lost his shutout

streak of 110 minutes, 42 sec- onds dating to Game 3. With


jersey hanging in the visitors’ locker room, the Bruins’ power play regressed to its previous postseason struggles, going


Thomas made only one mis- take but it was enough. The Canucks hung on for

their sixth straight home playoff victory since May 7. The home team has won every game in the series. In the last 21 times the finals were even going to Game 5, the winner went on to claim the Cup 15 times — yet Colorado (2001), Tampa Bay (2004) and Pittsburgh (2009) all overcame Game 5 losses to win it in the past decade. Luongo receives more criti-

cism than almost any goalie

with his level of accomplish- ment at hockey’s most elite lev- els, yet he has shown resilience throughout the postseason. He came back from a one-game benching in the first round against Chicago with a 2-1 vic-

tory in Game 7 and Vigneault unhesitatingly stuck by Luongo in the finals, ignoring wide-

spread trashing of his $10 mil- lion goalie after Boston’s 8-1 and 4-0 home wins. Luongo didn’t hesitate to

take his seawall walk among the Vancouverites who equally love and mistrust him. He did

it once before in the postseason,

clearing his mind before knock-

ing out the defending champion Blackhawks in Game 7 of the first round. The Canucks were grate- ful to return to Rogers Arena, where they eked out two 1-goal wins to open the series on late goals by Raffi Torres and Burrows. Vancouver seemed to

be in control when the club left Canada last weekend — but then the Bruins seized charge of the series with two inspired performances after Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome’s late hit knocked Horton out for the series with a concussion early

in Game 3.

Boston is still having tre- mendous defensive success in the finals, holding 2010 league MVP Henrik Sedin without a point and limiting NHL scoring champion Daniel Sedin to one goal. Vancouver’s power play

is 1-for-25 in the finals — yet the Bruins just haven’t scored timely road goals to back up Thomas, who allowed one goal

in two games in Boston.

Boston had three early power plays in Game 5 and con-

trolled long stretches of play but couldn’t crack Luongo. Chris Kelly hit Luongo’s crossbar with an early shot and Luongo made

a stunning point-blank save on

Patrice Bergeron’s rebound shot from the slot during Boston’s third power play. Vancouver killed another Boston power play and survived several dicey sequences in the second period before taking

control of play midway through the game.

Karlsson grabs 3-stroke lead with 65 in Memphis

By TERESA M. WALKER The Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Robert Karlsson keeps play- ing better and better at TPC Southwind. The Swede could be on track for his first PGA

Tour title if he keeps it up. Karlsson is focused only on his next round. Karlsson shot a 5-under 65 on Friday to take a 3-stroke lead after the second round of the St. Jude Classic. He started a stroke behind first- round leader David Mathis and carded six birdies and a bogey to reach 9 under. Karlsson, who lost here a year ago in a

playoff with Lee Westwood, has played his first six career rounds at the course under par with this his lowest score yet. Karlsson is ranked 23rd in the world and has 11 career European Tour titles. Colt Knost (68) and Keegan Bradley (67) were tied for second. Bradley, the Byron Nelson Championship win- ner two weeks ago, is among

a few who can earn a spot

next week in the U.S. Open at Congressional by winning his second tour event since the last Open. John Merrick (69) was 5 under and Fredrik Jacobson (65) and Harrison Frazar (65) were another stroke back. Brandt Snedeker, The Heritage winner in April, shot

a 66 to top the group at 3

under that included Mathis (72). With 83 making the cut at 2 over, David Toms (5 over) and Sergio Garcia (7 over) were among those who made an early departure for Congressional. Karlsson credits the lessons learned on his first practice round here a year ago to avoid hitting into the rough on this 7,239-yard course as much as possible to better set up shots into the greens. Temperatures in the high 90s the past cou- ple weeks have firmed up the Champion Bermuda greens. Starting at 4 under and tee- ing off on No. 10, Karlsson birdied his second hole and

finished the back side with

birdies on three of the final

four holes. He hit an 8-iron to

8 feet on the par-3 11th to set

up his first birdie. He saved par on Nos. 12-14 and then

hit a wedge from 106 yards to

7 feet to take advantage of a

front pin position on the par-4 15th to start his birdie string. Karlsson found the rough with his tee shot on the par-5

16th but recovered by hitting

a wedge from 124 to 5 feet for

a second straight birdie. He

stuck a 7-iron from 175 yards to 4 feet on the par-4 18th to reach 8 under.

He made the turn and bird- ied the par-4 first after hitting his second shot within 4 feet of the pin despite being 124 yards out in the primary rough. When Karlsson rolled in a 14-footer on No. 6 for birdie, he became the first player to reach double digits below par

at 10 under.

Karlsson dropped a shot with his lone bogey of the round and just his second this week when he 3-putted from 34 feet on the par-3 eighth. Bradley admitted to being a bit tired at Memorial following

his win at the Byron Nelson

Championship. He missed the cut and said he and his caddie got back to doing what worked

in Texas. He had a bogey-free

round with three birdies. Knost is among the Nationwide Tour graduates from 2010 playing well here. The SMU graduate who turned

pro in 2007 has made the cut

in eight of his 16 PGA events

this year and in good position for his best finish yet. LPGA State Farm Classic SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Mindy Kim maintained her 2-stroke lead in the LPGA State Farm Classic, follow- ing her opening career-low 64 with a 5-under 67 to reach 13 under. Kim had seven birdies — four in a row on Nos. 12-15 —

and two bogeys in the Panther Creek course. Top-ranked Yani Tseng (66) and Shanshan Feng (65) were tied for second. Jiyai Shin aced the par-3 second hole en route to a 68 to reach 10 under.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope

By Bernice Bede Osol

Sunday, June 12, 2011

It might be long overdue, but because of your established abilities

and talents you could find yourself in

a leadership role among your peers

during coming months. Others will be looking to you for fresh ideas and activities. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Whether you’re looking to do so or not, you could find yourself making all the plans for you and your friends. You’re the one with all the best ideas. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You might get the chance to spend some quality time with someone you like a lot. It may be a bonding session where each of you will discover what you can do for one another. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you’ve got some ideas on how to

improve your lot in life, take positive measures to put them into play. Once you move on things, Lady Luck could then jump in and lend a helping hand. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t be afraid to put into action some ideas you have that could elevate your position with your friends. You have the ability to arouse stimulating activities among your peers. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Certain things you recently learned about some of your peers can be put

to good use. A few colleagues might

possess some skills that can be used

to everyone’s benefit. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) --

Even if this is not a workday for you, you might learn about something that would benefit you greatly when you are on the job. Make your plans, so you’ll be ready to put them into action tomorrow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Someone you meet could potentially become a very good friend down the line. Whatever it is that joins you together, its benefits will be long-lasting. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An involvement in which you partake might become the vehicle that leads to fresh opportunities for you in the future. Lady Luck might be responsible for this. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- This is one of those days when new friends and/or interests might become part of your life. Anything

in which you get involved is likely to

prove fruitful. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You’ll be ready to drop certain things, activities or people who have proven to be unhelpful. Something that occurs at this time will be responsible for your new vision. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t sit any longer on plans to make your life better that you’ve spent a lot of time formulating in your head. Nothing will happen until you put your hopes into action. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Give priority to matters that could make you a little extra money,

whether they be planning ahead for the future or doing something right now to bring in those extra bucks.

Monday, June 13, 2011

Even if you should have to work a bit harder than usual in the year ahead, go for brass ring. Your earnings will not only increase, but there are also likely to be some residual benefits. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Unless you manage your assignments strategically, your projects could begin to overlap and end up in one big jumbled mess. Don’t try to do too many things at once. CANCER (June 21-July 22)

-- You don’t like to be controlled, so understand that others don’t like to be manipulated either. If you try to run them, you’ll not only meet with resentment but anger as well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Fail to think for yourself and you invite others to make decisions for you. Unfortunately, the wrong people will usually take the opportunity to use it to their advantage. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Be prepared to back up any claims you make, because there are always those who will challenge your statements, especially if what you say could affect them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

-- When dealing with a friend, it is extremely important that you conduct

everything in a businesslike fashion. If you don’t, either you or your pal could feel taken advantage of. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) --
