What if you knew, even before your child was born, that she wouldnt look like everyone else? Clara Beattys parents knew. They were living in Belgium at the time, a decade ago.
Prenatal screening was extensive, probably more than would have been done in the United States. Those tests determined that baby Clara, their third child, was likely to be a perfectly normal kid inside.
But even in the womb, doctors could see severe facial deformities droopy eyes, underdeveloped cheekbones and a tiny jaw.
It meant shed need a tube in her neck to help her breathe after birth. The lack of an outer ear and restricted ear canals also would mean shed have hearing aids by the time she was 6 months old.
In Belgium, it was unusual for babies to be born with Treacher Collins syndrome, caused by a genetic mutation. Parents almost always opted to abort, doctors said.
But the Beattys wouldnt hear of it. It wasnt any big moral statement, they say. There was just no question, Janet Beatty says. No wavering, despite the looks of disapproval from the medical staff before she was born and even after, in the intensive care unit.
It was kind of strange sometimes, with the doctors, some of whom I think really, really questioned why we had this baby, says Eric Beatty, Claras dad.
The next few years would be so challenging that the family moved back to the United States, both for family support and to seek medical care at Chicagos Childrens Memorial Hospital and other institutions.
There were breathing and feeding issues. The family had hour nursing care for the first three years of Claras life because she vomited so frequently.
They were lucky, they realized, to have that kind of help. Still, it took a toll on Claras parents, especially her mom.
Janet Beatty just wanted her daughter to be OK physically, to not be constantly worried that she might stop breathing, or choke. She wanted her daughter to have the happy childhood that her other two children had had free from the physical challenges and, yes, free from the constant stares of strangers when they were out in public.
Make her normal, her mother, Janet Beatty, thought privately. I want that normal kid. I didnt want people to stare, and I didnt want people running away from her.
Cosmetic surgery was an. US: blind activist wants to leave China BEIJING AP The Obama administrations diplomatic predicament deepened Thursday when a blind Chinese legal activist who took refuge in the American Embassy told the U.
Only hours after Chen Guangcheng left the embassy for a hospital checkup and reunion with his family, he began telling friends and foreign media they feel threatened and want to go abroad.
At first taken aback at the reversal, the State Department said officials spoke twice by phone with Chen and met with his wife, with both affirming their desire to leave.
They as a family have had a change of heart about whether they want to stay in China, department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.
Nuland stopped short of saying whether Washington would try to reopen negotiations to get Chen abroad should Beijing agree.
We need to consult with them further to get a better sense of what they want to do and consider their options, Nuland said. Chens still unresolved fate threatens to.
But on a child so young, it would have to be redone, over and over. It was better, doctors said, to wait until her teen years. And as her parents discovered, Clara was quite able to cope, sometimes better than they.
Even today, Janet Beatty is astounded at how well her youngest daughter navigates the world. Even when she was little, you could look at her and people would say theres an old soul in there, she says.
She just had these big eyes and you could see her taking everything in. Certainly, there are times when Clara gets frustrated.
Now 9 years old and finishing the fourth grade, she looks forward to the day a few years from now when her skull will have grown enough for cosmetic surgery.
It wont fix things, but likely will help her blend more and possibly help her get rid of the breathing tube.
I want to try to make myself as much like the other kids, so that I can stop having everyone asking me questions, Clara says, because it gets so annoying.
She says it matter-offactly not like shes hurt or damaged by the questions and comments. When people stare, she says, she just smiles and says hi, because thats what her parents have taught her to do.

Antrae Pinn, 27, Lima, changed his plea to an amended charge of attempted possession of a weapon under disability, a felony of the fourth degree.
He was originally charged with two counts of weapons under disability, both felonies of the third degree. The state reduced the first charge and dismissed the second count in a plea agreement.
Case was set for sentencing on June He was released on a surety bond, but is being held on a holder from Allen County for pending charges there. His case hovered over todays opening of two-day talks on global political and economic hotspots led by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and their Chinese counterparts.
Chen remained in the hospital, its grounds ringed by a noticeable police presence, making it unclear how his exit could be arranged, and receiving medical tests.
A self-taught lawyer, Chen, 40, spent most of the last seven years in prison or under house arrest in what was seen as retribution by local authorities for his advocacy against forced abortions and other official misdeeds.

A makeshift, temporary wall has been erected across a bridge on a road from the airport to downtown Manila that hides a sprawling slum along a garbage-strewn creek.
Presidential spokesman Ricky Carandang defended the walls installation, saying today any country will do a little fixing up before a guest comes.
He expressed hope that this weeks annual meeting of Asian Development Bank Board of Governors, which includes finance ministers and senior officials from 67 member states, will show the Philippines is open for business.
The lending institition, which is headquartered in its own walled compound in Manila, aims to cut poverty in the Asia-Pacific region.
We need to show our visitors that Metro Manila is orderly. We owe it to ourselves, said metropolital Manila chief Francis Tolentino.
I see nothing wrong with beautifying our surroundings. We are not trying to keep the poor out of the picture, he said.

Sophisticated and expensive intensive care saves the majority of preterm babies in the U. The risk of death from prematurity is at least 12 times higher for an African newborn than for a European baby, the report found.
Globally, prematurity is not only the leading killer of newborns but the second-leading cause of death in children under 5. These facts should be a call to action, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon wrote in an introduction to the report.
Three-quarters of the deaths could be prevented by spreading some simple, inexpensive treatments to the neediest countries, the report concludes.
Theyre standard in developed countries; wider use in low-income countries could save nearly , babies a year. Even more lives could be saved by teaching kangaroo care, in which moms carry their tiny babies nestled skinto-skin on their bare chests for warmth when there are no incubators.
To see babies who are grams about 2 pounds survive. Also needed: Antibiotics to fight the infections that often kill newborns, and antiseptic cream to prevent umbilical cord infection.
Survival isnt the only hurdle. No one knows how many preemies suffer disabilities including cerebral palsy, blindness or learning disorders.
Thats why preventing preterm births in the first place is the ultimate goal, one reason for comparing countries to learn why some do better and some worse.
Previously, the groups had estimated that 13 million babies were born prematurely each year, based on regional data. About 12 percent of U.
In contrast, just 5. Experts cant fully explain why the U. But part of the reason must be poorer access to prenatal care for uninsured U.

Visit us on the web: www. Cleveland wont renew Occupy groups permit By THOMAS J. SHEERAN and ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS Associated Press CLEVELAND Occupy protesters must ask serious questions about their open-arms policy in light of charges brought against five members accused of trying to blow up an Ohio bridge, a top Cleveland official said Wednesday.
The city declined to renew the groups downtown encampment permit on Wednesday, a denial planned before the bridge plot arrests were announced Monday, said Ken Silliman, chief of staff to Mayor Frank Jackson.
The group, which remained by its encampment tent Wednesday night despite a 5 p. Police are monitoring, but no arrests have been made.
The decision was made with the allegations as a backdrop, Silliman added. I think a fair question to ask of Occupy Cleveland, is, if you have portrayed your organization up till now as welcome to all-comers the tent will accommodate anyone and everyone how does that change when something like the events of yesterday happen?
Silliman said. How does that change when some of the people youve welcomed into your decision-making are now accused of such serious felonies?
That question must be asked even if the city accepts the organizations statements that it is nonviolent and was distancing itself from those charged in the plot, Silliman said.
Occupy members, who received an encampment permit in October, planned to sit in protest of the tents dismantling by police, but dont plan to be arrested, Occupy Cleveland spokesman Joseph Zitt said.
The group has said the men didnt represent Occupy Cleveland and were not acting on its behalf. Sillimans statements are something the group must discuss, he said.
But Greenpeace chastises others Apple, Amazon and Microsoft for relying on so-called dirtier sources of power, such as coal and nuclear, to run their huge data centers.
When people around the world share their music or photos on the cloud, they want to know that the cloud is powered by clean, safe energy, says Gary Cook, a Senior Policy Analyst with Greenpeace.
Yet highly innovative and profitable companies like Apple, Amazon and Microsoft are building data centers powered by coal and acting like their customers wont know or wont care.
Theyre wrong. Greenpeaces report evaluates 14 major tech firms and the electricity supply chains in use across more than 80 different data centers that power cloud-based services.
Some of the largest data centers are in buildings so big they are visible from space and use as much power as , European homes. If the cloud were its own country, says Greenpeace, it would rank 5th in the world in electricity consumption.
Companies like Google, Yahoo and Facebook are beginning to lead the sector down a clean energy pathway through innovations in energy efficiency, prioritizing renewable energy access when siting their data centers, and demanding better energy options from utilities and government decision-makers, reports Greenpeace.
But unfortunately the majority of the industry is not marching in step. As such, Greenpeace is calling on all tech companies with cloud services to develop siting policies based on access to clean energy sources, invest in or directly purchase renewable energy, be transparent about their energy usage, share innovative solutions so the sector as a whole can improve, and demand that governments and utilities increase the percentage of clean, green power available on the grid.

Subscribe: www. AKRON AP A northeast Ohio sheriffs deputy has been fired for ordering five jail inmates to dance to a song by Usher in exchange for privileges such as using a phone or microwave.
Media outlets citing an internal report say the Summit County sheriff fired the year-old deputy this week for mistreating inmates, acting inappropriately and having a cellphone in the jail, apparently used to play the music.
The report says the deputy invited colleagues to watch April 11 as inmates danced. The Akron Beacon Journal reports one inmate did the worm, while another said he mimicked a robot so he could use the phone to contact relatives after a family members death.
Investigators say the deputy admitted his mistake but said he was only trying to ease tension in the jail. COLUMBUS AP Ohios agriculture director says the current fee structure wouldnt cover the cost of a proposal to regulate dangerous exotic wildlife in the state.
Animal owners had complained that some proposed fees would be cost-prohibitive. The bills sponsor, Republican Sen. Troy Balderson of Zanesville, agreed to cut some of those fees in response before the measure was approved by the Senate.
The Columbus Dispatch reports Agriculture Director David Daniels spoke Wednesday to House lawmakers considering the program. He says there would be a huge gap between the cost and the revenue produced.
Efforts to regulate exotic animals took on new urgency in October, when a suicidal owner released dozens of tigers, bears and other creatures.
They were killed by authorities. State announces harmful algae bloom advisory levels for Ohio has announced this seasons strategy for Harmful Algal Blooms HABs in recreational waters.
The most notable change to the strategy is the addition of permanent signage that will be displayed at certain state park lakes along with information about HABs.
The use of permanent signage is another tool to help increase public awareness while providing educational color photos illustrating what to look for in the water.
In addition to the permanent signage, two new colorcoded signs will be posted at beaches where toxin levels exceed the limits in the HAB Response Strategy for Recreational Waters.
An orange Recreational Public Health Advisory sign will be posted at beaches when toxin levels exceed the recommended threshold, warning individuals who are elderly or very young and people with compromised immune systems that swimming or wading is not recommended.
A red No Contact Advisory sign will be posted when toxin levels exceed the recommended threshold and there are one or more probable cases of human illness or pet deaths attributable to HABs.
This sign will warn people that unsafe toxins are present in the water and to avoid any contact. Once an advisory is posted, the state will sample until toxins reach safe levels or until the end of the beach season in Ohio.
For the most up-to-date information on HABs, access ohioalgaeinfo. The website. When things like this happen, we discover there might be factors that we had not necessarily thought of before, Zitt said.
Questions arise, they get discussed in assembly, we come to consensus on it. Were learning. The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio questioned the timing of the permit revocation, saying it was concerned Jacksons announcement was an attempt to connect the entire Occupy movement to the bomb plot.
Individuals are responsible for their own actions, not the groups they affiliate with, ACLU of Ohio Legal Director James Hardiman said in a statement.
City officials should not be in the business of condemning an entire group of people based on the actions of others.
Bill Dobbs, a spokesman for Occupy in New York, also said the arrests have nothing to do with the Occupy movement that began last fall.
This incident has nothing to do with Occupy Wall Street, which explicitly stands for non-violence, he said. Before theres a rush to judgment, facts need to come out.
Those charged are entitled to a fair trial and due process. The five were charged Tuesday with plotting to bomb a bridge linking two wealthy Cleveland suburbs by placing what they thought were real explosives at the site and repeatedly trying to detonate them using text messages from cellphones, according to the FBI affidavit.
On Wednesday, an attorney representing one of the defendants questioned the role of an undercover informant, saying the ex-con hired by the FBI appeared to have played an active role in the plot.
Cleveland defense lawyer John Pyle said his client, Brandon Baxter, will plead not guilty in the case, which is set for a preliminary hearing next week.
An attorney for a second defendant, Douglas Wright, said his client also will plead not guilty. The attorney for a third defendant, Anthony Hayne, said his only information came from the page affidavit.
E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: Why is Greenpeace upset with some leading tech companies for so-called dirty cloud computing?
Can you explain? Jeremy Wilkins, Waco, TX Leading tech companies like Google, Apple and Microsoft are now offering unprecedented amounts of data storage and access to apps on huge Internet-connected servers, saving consumers and businesses the hassle of installing and running programs and storing information on their own local computers.
This emerging trend, dubbed cloud computing, means that these providers have had to scale up their power consumption considerably, as they are increasingly responsible for providing more and more of the computing horsepower required by the worlds two billion Internet users.
No doubt, sharing such resources on centralized servers is more efficient than every individual and business running their own versions separately.
But for the greenhouse gas savings to be realized, the companies offering cloud computing services need to make the right energy choices.
Greenpeace has been tracking sustainability among tech companies for over a decade, and recently released a report, How Green is Your Cloud?
Greenpeace wants companies like Apple, Amazon and Microsoft to make smarter, cleaner energy choices now that cloud computing services have ratcheted up provides a list of all current power consumption considadvisories and sampling data, erably.

May Sarton, American poet born this date in , died in Republican super PACs launch war on Obama By BETH FOUHY Associated Press NEW YORK Its on.
Independent groups favoring Mitt Romney already are launching TV advertisements in competitive states for the November general election, providing political cover against President Barack Obamas well-financed campaign while the Republican candidate works to rebound from a bruising and expensive nomination fight.
Some conservative organizations also are planning big get-outthe-vote efforts, and Romney backers are courting wealthy patrons of his former GOP rivals.
Taken together, the developments underscore how dramatically the political landscape has changed since a trio of federal court cases most notably the Supreme Courts Citizens United ruling paved the way for a flood of campaign cash from corporations and tycoons looking to help their favored candidates.
Citizens United has made an already aggressive anti-Obama movement even more empowered, said Stephen Farnsworth, a professor of political science at the University of Mary Washington.
Theres now a regular Republican line of attack on Obama, even when the Romney campaign is taking a breather, raising money and preparing for the general election.
The general election spending and advertising has only just begun. Voters in roughly a dozen hard-fought states will be inundated with TV ads, direct mail, automated phone calls and other forms of outreach by campaign staff members and volunteers pleading for their votes.
While Obama and Romney both will spend huge amounts of money in the coming months, an untold additional amount will come from outside organizations called super PACs that can collect unlimited contributions from corporations, unions and individuals.
Its latest ad depicts Romney, a wealthy former private equity executive, as a corporate raider who once maintained a Swiss bank account.

For Obama, the agreement represents a compromise with Karzai after messy negotiations over U. He wants to showcase a long-term commitment to Afghan stability when he hosts NATO leaders for a summit in Chicago later this month.
Obama called the agreement historic, and said it defines a new kind of relationship between our countries a future in which Afghans are responsible for the security of their nation, and we build an equal partnership between two sovereign states.
The deal pledges Afghanistan to fight corruption, improve efficiency and protect human rights, including womens rights.
All are areas where the United States already finds fault with Afghan performance, and Afghanistan has promised improvement on corruption many times before.
The nine-page agreement spells out no consequences if those or other goals are not met. The agreement uses even looser language to address the production and trafficking of illegal drugs in Afghanistan, a major opium producer.
Both nations affirm that illicit drugs undermine security and legitimate economic growth but promise only to cooperate to confront the threat.
The United States promises to seek annual funding to train and equip the Afghan armed forces but gives no dollar figure.
That money must be approved by Congress, which has so far supported the Obama administrations plan to build up the Afghan forces. There is growing concern in Congress, however, about the quality of those forces, and the billions of dollars they would need over 10 years is not assured.
The agreement promises ongoing U. Although the law made significant cuts to providers and improved prescription and preventive benefits for seniors, Medicare has been overlooked in a Supreme Court debate focused on the laws controversial requirement that individuals carry health insurance.
Yet havoc in Medicare could have repercussions in an election year when both parties are avidly courting seniors. In papers filed with the Supreme Court, administration lawyers have warned of extraordinary disruption if Medicare is forced to unwind countless transactions that are based on payment changes required by more than 20 separate sections of the Affordable Care Act.
Opponents argue that the whole law should go. The administration counters that even if it strikes down the insurance mandate, the court should preserve most of the rest of the legislation.
That would leave in place its changes to Medicare, as well as a major expansion of Medicaid coverage. Last year, in a lower court filing on the case, Justice Department lawyers said reversing the Medicare payment changes would impose staggering administrative burdens on the government and could cause major delays and errors in claims payment.
Medicare payment policies are set through a time-consuming process that begins with legislation passed by Congress. Even if Obamas overhaul were completely overturned, the government still would have authority under previous law to pay hospitals, doctors, insurance plans, nursing homes and other providers.
There is an independent legal basis to pay providers if the Supreme Court strikes down the entire law, said Thomas Barker, a former Health and Human Services general counsel in the George W.
Bush administration. But reversing the new. But Obama is unlikely to receive anywhere near the kind of financial backup Romney is already getting from outside groups.

How would the government treat payments made over the last two years, when the overhaul has been the law of the land? Would providers have a right to refunds of cuts that had been made under the legislation?
Former program administrators disagree on the potential for major disruptions, while some private industry executives predict an avalanche of litigation unless Congress intervenes.
Medicare cannot turn on a dime, said former administrator Don Berwick, whose confirmation was blocked by Senate Republicans opposed to Obamas law.
I would not be surprised if there are delays and problems with payment flow. Medicare has dealt with sudden changes in payment before, but it is not easy.
Its not just reimbursement levels that would get scrambled, Berwick said. The laws new philosophy of paying hospitals and doctors for quality results instead of for sheer volume of tests and procedures has been incorporated in some payment policies.
As more and more students continue to enroll in higher education, debt balances are expected to continue climbing. Students burdened by excessive debt are less likely to start a business, buy a home, or continue on to graduate school.
My legislation would help ensure that more middle-class Ohioans can achieve their dream of going to college. Ohio students many of them already working while attending class should not be required to mortgage their future or delay their opportunities for a better life because of student loan debt.
The ability to pay for higher education is essential, as many middle-class jobs in Ohio and throughout the country require training past high school.
And higher education leads to higher earnings over a lifetime. Whether its a career center or private liberal arts school, two-year college or flagship university, students should not be forced to forego college because Congress refused to do its work.
Thats why I will continue to fight until Congress acts. The future of Ohio students and our nation depends on it. Kitchen Press A taste of the southwest in celebration of Cinco de Mayo or for any meal.

Seaus death opens up all the old questions The apparent suiJIM METCALFE cide of San Diegos 6-time all-Pro linebacker and time Pro Bowler Junior Seau was a definite shock to me and a lot of fans.
After all, this guy was known for his ferocious hitting and played for almost two decades in an increasingly fast, explosive and violent sport.
The fact one that I never knew or realized before this that he becomes the eighth member of the Chargers lone Super Bowl team to have died is unbelievable, especially since they were all under the age of Is it just coincidence or is there a pattern?
I dont know why its apparently just this team that has had this happen. Even though he was a ferocious player, friends and foes alike seem to have genuinely liked him, saying he had a smile on his face.
He had the ability to turn it off once the whistle blew; former foes like Steve Young were telling stories of Seau pounding him into the ground and then genuinely asking how he was after the whistle.
Which makes this all the more unbelievable; a guy with a seemingly upbeat personality would all of a sudden decide to take the permanent solution to a temporary problem route is difficult to comprehend.
More than a future NFL Hall-of-Famer, he was the father of four, a friend, a son. In the end, we probably will never really know what brought this on.
The concussions his ex-wife told reporters he had his share but kept on playing because that is who he was will definitely be talked about and I imagine there will be a very detailed autopsy; perhaps he even donated his body to science.
Ultimately, though, this is a mystery; what put him over the edge will be a question we may never truly be able to answer. Well scratch our heads and pray for the best for his family; they have to go on and will need all their friends and family.
Fame and fortune are very, very alluring. Look at the professional wrestlers Ric Flair comes to mind and other athletes that seem unable to walk away until they have to be carried off.
Depression may have always been there throughout their careers for various reasons but it seems to hit like a ton of bricks when the reality sets in that they are done, physically and mentally.
He had it all and now he has nothing. It takes something else faith, solid planning, having something other than athletics to help these guys and gals to not become so identified with WHAT they do more so than WHO they are.
I am sure fear of the unknown especially considering the heights he attained also comes into play but, again, that can be helped by realizing there is a life after professional athletics.
They have to realize that they are like the rest of us mere mortals and are, well, mortal. As the old prayer comes to mind: may his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
FORT JENNINGS Seniors Troy Hellman and Nolan Neidert took care of the pitching and the offense finally got untracked as Fort Jennings railroaded Ada in a 6-inning nonleague baseball affair Wednesday at Fort Jennings Village Park.
Hellman ; 5 innings, 1 hit, 1 baseon-balls, 3 Ks; 51 pitches, 32 strikes and Neidert 1 IP, 2 hits, 1 BB, 1 K did their jobs.
In fact, Hellman retired the first 12 Bulldog batters. Thats what Troy does; he throws strikes. He had about a 4-to-1 strikeout-towalk ratio, Fort Jennings coach Jeff Swick said, gaining his th win.
When we play good defense behind him, like tonight, he wins; when we dont play good defense behind him, he loses. I wanted to pinch-count him around 50 and leave him with enough left for Saturday in case we need him.
Lady Dogs secure PCL title tie vs Kalida By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald btz weber. The Columbus Grove Lady Bulldogs traveled to Kalida to take on the Lady Wildcats in their annual Putnam County League fastpitch softball showdown.
The Lady Dogs used a 6-run third inning to come away with a win; however, the game was filled with hitting, great defensive plays and both teams players and fans giving it their all until the final out.
