This year-long event will give the service provider an opportunity to share its story from the beginnings of a grassroots movement in 1952. TROY For two quarters, folks who attend the sixth annual Farmer’s Share Breakfast will not only get a full meal, but a taste of how much it takes for a farmer to put the sausage in the skillet. The Miami County Farm Bureau’s annual breakfast has grown from its humble beginnings the first year to a full-blown breakfast bonanza, according to organization director Mandy Havenar. “Our first year we had about 150 people and last year we had a crowd of more than 1,000 who came for breakfast,” Havenar said. “It has caught on and people enjoy coming each year and we expect several hundred more this year, too.” The Miami County Farm Bureau’s sixth annual Farmers Share Breakfast will be from 7:3010:30 a.m. Saturday at the Duke Lundgard Building on the Miami County Fairgrounds for just 50 Demjanjuk dies in Germany Nation marks St. Pat’s Day John Demjanjuk was convicted of being a low-ranking guard at the Sobibor death camp, but his 35-year fight on three continents to clear his name — a legal battle that had not yet ended when he died Saturday at age 91 — made him one of the best-known faces of Nazi prosecutions.

MARYS (AP) — Ohio’s largest inland lake will be treated this spring with a chemical aimed at heading off the toxic algae blooms that have hurt area tourism. The state says it will treat all 13,000 acres of Grand Lake St. Marys, instead of just part of it, with aluminum sulfate beginning April 1. The 1 Complete weather information on Page A14.

The phosphorous feeds bluegreen toxic algae, which produces a nerve toxin that can sicken humans and kill pets and other animals. The toxic algae led to previous lake closures and advisories against swimming and boating and even warnings against touching the water, all of which were devastating to the local tourism industry. This year’s alum treatment will start two months earlier than last year’s treatment and should allow the phosphorous to bind to the alum more effectively and improve water quality, officials said. “We are committed to Lunch Specials Only $ LUNCH 3.95 Choose from: Enchilada • Taco • Chalupa • Tamale • Chile Relleno • Burrito 11a-3p M-F All Include Rice & Beans.

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago dyed its river green, bagpipes sounded on New York’s 5th Avenue, and in Georgia, crowds waited for 30 minutes to buy beer for breakfast before watching Savannah’s 188-year-old St. Patrick’s Day parade. Thousands gathered Saturday morning along the Chicago River, some in shamrock-shaped sunglasses and others dressed as leprechauns with fake orange beards. Applause erupted as a motorboat sped in circles and a man on board dumped a secret dye in the water, quickly turning it a psychedelic green. The much-loved annual ritual kicked off a day of partying. This year, the guest of honor was Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who took part in the parade of floats, traditional Irish dancers and musicians marching along an avenue near Chicago’s lakefront. Kenny began the day at City Hall with Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Both men sported green ties and shamrocks in their lapels. The prime minister said he was honored to take part in Chicago’s festivities and praised the city with a large Irish population for being so receptive to immigrants. “That’s a privilege that I shall remember for a long time,” Kenny said of his role in the festivities. In Savannah, revelers set out folding chairs before dawn to catch the parade, a tradition that started in 1824 as a procession with religious roots by settlers who immigrated to the Georgia coast. Lines of thirsty patrons were spilling out of downtown bars before the pre-parade Mass wrapped up at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. “It’s ridiculous for still being in the a.m.,” said Timmy Watkins, a utility worker who emerged from Pinkie Master’s Lounge with a beer in each hand after standing • See ST.
