Four Indicted for Human Trafficking Robbery Attempt at 2 ATM's First Investigation Leads to Indictments and Arrests The indictments of four Chillicothe residents who are under investigation by the newly formed Central Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force. "This is the first task force of its kind in Central Ohio," said Attorney General Mike DeWine. "My office created this unit, because human trafficking is happening every day in this area and we need to be proactive to fight it." Members of the task force began investigating the Chillicothe residents when a woman reported to authorities that the suspects brought her to Columbus under false pretenses and forced her to have sex with more than a dozen men over a period of several days. Investigators believe there could be at least two more victims. "These suspects placed advertisements on the internet offering up the victim as a prostitute and collected money from the men who answered the ads," said DeWine. "They forced the young woman to be a sex slave, and they will not get away with it." Those arrested and indicted include: • Roger Rider Trafficking in Persons, Rape, Kidnapping and Promoting Prostitution • Richard Evans Trafficking in Persons, Rape, Kidnapping and Promoting Prostitution Those indicted, but not yet arrested include: • Craig Tackett Trafficking in Persons, Rape, Kidnapping and Promoting Prostitution • Mara Morrison Trafficking in Persons, Kidnapping and Promoting Prostitution Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien's office will be prosecuting the cases. The Central Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force is part of the Attorney General's Ohio

Organized Crime Investigations Commission (OOCIC). The unit is primarily made up officers from the Columbus Police Department, along with officers from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI), the Powell Police Department, U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). "The Columbus Division of Police is committed to investigating and stopping the trafficking of any human being," said Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs. "Our participation in this task force is a sign of our deep desire to protect our citizens and to prevent this heinous crime from occurring in our community." "Every officer involved in this task force is a top notch investigator devoted to helping the people who are forced not only into the sex trade, but into the labor trade as well," DeWine said. "We are pleased by the success investigators have had so far and expect more arrests in the future." Agents with BCI are also working with human trafficking task forces in northwest and northeast Ohio. Attorney General DeWine also established a Human Trafficking Commission to work to analyze, research and find solutions for the human trafficking problem. The commission's research and analysis subcommittee plans to release recent study findings and suggest recommendations on how to prevent domestic sex trafficking soon. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Craig Tackett or Mara Marrison should contact either the Columbus Police Department at 614-645-4545 or BCI at 855BCI-OHIO (855-224-6446).

OSHP s eeks 2 00 n ew r ecruits i n S outhern O hio Highway Patrol: We are hiring The Highland County Press The "Help Wanted" sign is on at the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Trooper and OSHP Recruiter Rick Hughes told The Highland County Press this week the patrol is looking for as many as 200 new recruits in southern Ohio. Hughes represents a 20-county district that includes Highland County, as well as Darke, Shelby, Champaign, Miami, Clark, Preble, Montgomery, Fayette, Greene, Butler, Warren, Clinton, Clermont, Brown, Adams, Pike, Scioto, Jackson and Lawrence counties. The recruitment process, leading to acceptance into the Ohio State Highway Patrol Academy, takes 61 days.The academy is a 20-week program, with a starting pay of $18.66. Ohio state troopers earn approximately $50,000 a year to start. Founded in 1933, the Ohio State Highway Patrol is a statewide law enforcement agency charged with the responsibility of enforcing traffic and criminal laws on public roadways and on state-owned or leased property within Ohio. The Patrol is also responsible for driver’s license examination stations, vehicle inspections, school bus

inspections, commercial vehicle weigh stations, conducting aircraft and vehicle crash investigations, and providing security for state facilities. "We are actively looking for 200 qualified applicants," Hughes said. "We are an equal opportunity employer and offer a competitive benefits package. We have a new streamlined recruitment process that takes only 61 days." Hughes said the OSHP has lost a number of troopers to recent retirements and that the Patrol is actively seeking candidates from southern Ohio. "The current recruitment process has changed," Hughes noted. "If you think you would like to be a trooper for the Ohio State Highway Patrol, go to our website ( Once you are there, you will click on the Recruitment tab. Second, you will click on the Application Process. "You will see seven steps starting with application checklist. Scroll down, and you will see the six items in the checklist that you must complete prior to contacting a recruiter. Start these steps right away and complete them as soon as possible. You may be eligible for the next Ohio State Highway Patrol Academy

Class." Once you have completed the checklist, contact Hughes via e-mail at or by telephone at (614) 800-7246. The next step is the physical fitness and written exam. The recruiter will set up a testing date and time at the local Patrol Post level. You must be able to reach the minimum requirements listed on the website. Troopers also are expected to live by core moral values, Hughes said. The core values of the Highway Patrol are: • Honesty – The single most reliable mark of a trooper's value is to be able to admit when he/she is wrong and go forward. • Sense of Urgency – Troopers realize the importance of prompt response to crashes and calls for service. • Attention to Detail – If it is worth doing, it's worth doing thoroughly. Attention to detail is the mark of a good public servant.

• Team Oriented – Members of the Patrol and members of the law enforcement community in general are a team, of which the individual components are not as valuable as the whole. • Professionalism – Being professional means being punctual, courteous, prepared, and wellgroomed. It also means having and showing respect for every person a trooper encounters. • Adaptability – Troopers must maintain flexibility with a high degree of performance. A trooper's job is never the same from one day to the next – a trooper must be able to make changes and still perform the job to the highest degree. • Self-Discipline – or stated another way, Accountability. Every trooper must recognize what job needs to be done, and then do that job well. Law enforcement officers have a responsibility to those they serve to be accountable for their actions. • Performance Driven – Being

performance driven means working hard. Troopers are driven to perform because success is measured in both quantity and quality.We are constantly reminded of our department save lives, reduce injuries and economic losses on the streets and highways of Ohio. • Officer Safety – It is imperative this core value be instilled in our troopers. They must maintain a high level of awareness in every situation. "This isn't just a job, it's a career," Hughes said. "The pay is good, there are excellent benefits, and the State Patrol is like a family." Hughes pointed out that the OSHP employs more than highway patrol troopers. The Patrol trains and maintains a number of officers in specialized law enforcement positions. Among these are: plain-clothes investigators, traffic and drug interdiction teams and canine officers, commercial enforcement coordinators, inspectors, and crash reconstructionists. The Patrol also maintains a special response team, comprised of troopers who are specially trained in weapons and chemical agent use, extraction techniques, and rapid response methods. For more information, go to or contact Officer Hughes at or (614) 800-7246.

The 2012 Kinfolk's Landing Days Queen and her Court TOURISM

Cont. from page 1

In 2011 occupancy rates in Adams County lodging facilities increased 21.05 % over 2010. “I expected the good news from the report as all indicators for 2011 were up including sales, lodging tax receipts and visitor request for information,” said Executive Director of the Adams County Travel & Visitors Bureau, Tom Cross. “And as good as 2011 was, all indicators are now pointing toward record year or near record year in tourism for Adams County in 2012. I fully expect 2012 to possibly be the best tourism year on record, but I won’t know that until early next year. The Amish retail businesses are experiencing a good year and it appears the lodging business is having a pretty good year thus far and again I expect full rooms and crowded restaurants once hunting season rolls around in Adams County.” For more information on the Economic Impact Report on Tourism in Adams County please contact the Adams County Travel & Visitors Bureau office at (937) 544-5639.

Dear Editor, Save Our Shawnee Rain forest organization wants to thank the 682 visitors to the Adams County fair who filled out a survey form. local people really like Shawnee Forest. Some 142 or 20% took extra time to write comments. To read them go to h t t p : / / w w w. s a v e o u r or write for a copy at PO Box 132 Friendship, Ohio 45630. Most people like multiple aspects about Shawnee Forest. They like doing things such as hiking, horseback riding, photography, bird watching, butterflies, flowers, hunting, fishing and mushroom hunting. They like family outings like

picnicking, camping and auto tours. They like forest aesthetics like peace and quiet, clean fresh air, clean water, scenic views, relaxation and inspiration. Academics like study and research weren't checked as much but 4-H, Boy Scout and Girl Scout items were popular choices for young people. If anyone missed us in Adams County, come to the Scioto County fair the week of August 6 and look for SOSF in building 4 with the survey and more. Help save Shawnee Forest for the things people like.

Cuffs and Collars Field reports from Ohio Division of Wildlife Officers Southeast Ohio Early November 2011, State Wildlife Officer Eric Bear in Washington County received a call from a hunter. The hunter informed Officer Bear that he had been watching a large buck on his property all fall long and even had several trail camera photos of the deer. He had hunted the deer with no success, but found out another hunter had harvested the deer when he was given a photo of the successful hunter posing with the deer. A short time later he had harvest a nice buck of his own, and while delivering his deer to a taxidermist in West Virginia he was admiring the other deer that the taxidermist was waiting to mount. To his disbelief, he found the antlers from the large buck he had been hunting. He saw that the deer did not have an Ohio tag, but was tagged with a West Virginia tag. Officer Bear had the caller email him the photo of the hunter and the deer and several trail camera photos of the deer. Officer Bear met with West Virginia DNR Officer Casto. Bear briefed Casto on the info from the caller and gave him copies of the photos. Officer Casto went to the taxidermist and verified that the antlers matched the deer in the photos and took them as evidence. Officer Casto set up a meeting with the owner of the antlers, and he and Officer Bear met with the suspect, and after a brief investigation it was determined that the deer was harvested in Ohio and tagged in West Virginia. It was also

determined that the suspect had done the same thing the year before, as well as taking antlers from a dead deer back from Ohio to West Virginia. Officers Casto and Bear recovered the other two sets of antlers from the suspect’s home. The suspect was charged with three counts of possession of illegal deer in West Virginia. He pled guilty and paid fines and cost. He

was also charged in Ohio with failing to check in two deer. He pled no contest in the Marietta Municipal Court where he was found guilty and ordered to pay $690.00 in fines and costs. He was also ordered to pay $4,453.55 in restitution for the deer. The antlers were forfeited to the Division of Wildlife. Central Ohio On an evening in June, Logan County Wildlife Officer Adam Smith finished checking anglers for fishing license compliance at Indian Lake and returned to his patrol vehicle. Parked next to his vehicle was a truck with a boat loaded on a trailer. Three individuals were standing next to the boat; two were getting their fishing rods rigged up. The third individual was standing nearby, watching his friends get their fishing rods ready. Officer Smith saw

a third fishing rod sitting in the bed of the truck. He asked the third individual what kind of fish he was going after and the man replied, “I’m not going fishing.” Officer Smith told the group to have a good evening, be safe, and drove away. Smith circled around and found a spot to watch the group. After observing all three fishing, Smith contacted the group and learned that the man who had previously said that he was not going fishing, did not have a valid fishing license. The angler was cited for fishing without a license and paid a fine of $98.50 and court costs of $76.50. Northwest Ohio Just before midnight on a mild spring evening, State Wildlife Officer Brad Baaske worked enforcement activities at the Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area in southern Wyandot County. At 12:30 a.m., Officer Baaske observed a car pull into a parking lot at the wildlife area and come to a stop next to a large cottonwood tree. Two men got out of the car, retrieved a cooler from the trunk, a pizza box from the back seat, and proceeded to sit down on the hood of the car with the cooler and pizza between them. Officer Baaske watched for several minutes as the men enjoyed their beer and pizza and talked about their day. As each man emptied a bottle, the men would make a comment and throw the glass bottle against the cottonwood tree leaving shattered glass around its trunk. When the cooler was empty and the pizza gone, the cooler was put back into the trunk and the men began driving away. Officer Baaske stopped the vehicle and identified the two men. Baaske determined that the men had consumed a total of 12 beers and all of the bottles, as well as the pizza box remained at the base of the large cottonwood tree. Each man was cited for the litter and alcohol violations, and family members were called to drive them home.

Keep Wheat in Your Crop Rotation It Produces Big Crop Profits As we hit August, it is time to start thinking about our next move. Well, many good managers are well ahead of that, the next move was planned long ago. However, with 2012 being anything but a normal year, there may be a reason to change that next move. I pulled this article from 5 years ago discussing wheat in the rotation. Some of the weed pressure that continues to mount with resistance might be better handled with wheat back in the rotation. The prices used in the article will take you back a few years, but the point is the same. This article appeared in the July 31st edition of the C.O.R.N. newsletter, and was written by Jim Beuerlein, Pierce Paul, OSU Extension Specialists (in 2007). If you would like to receive the C.O.R.N. newsletter by e-mail, simply send me an e-mail at and I will add you to the mailing list Many years of crop rotation research indicates that adding wheat to your corn/soybean crop rotation will increase your corn and soybean yield by an average of five percent. With today’s high commodity prices, including wheat in your crop rotation can earn big bucks. Consider that the yield of $4.00 corn and $8.00 soybeans was increased five percent due to having wheat in your rotation, and that you average 150 bushels of corn and 45 bushels of soybeans per acre. That five percent extra yield of corn is worth $30.00 per acre and the extra bean yield is worth $18.00 per acre. For 500 acres of both crops that is $24,000.00 of new income due to having wheat in the crop rotation. Another reason for having a three year rotation

including wheat is reduced disease and insect problems your corn and soybean crops and less expenditure for pesticides. Also wheat straw is currently worth $2.00 to $3.00 per bale and is expected to be valuable for several years. Following wheat harvest there is the opportunity to control problem weeds; add tile, lime, or fertilizer, remove rocks, fill in low spots where crops die due to excess water, make a fall forage seeding, or prepare

1,672,704 seeds per acre. THREE is the pre-plant application of 25 pounds of nitrogen per acre, plus phosphate, potash, and lime according to a soil test. Wheat is very responsive to phosphate and needs a pH between 6.5 and 7.0 for really good performance. In the spring (April 1stMay 15th) apply one pound of nitrogen per bushel of yield goal less the 25 pounds applied in the fall.

The minimum or critical soil phosphorus level is 25 ppm and the critical soil potassium level is somewhere between 100 and 125 ppm for many of our soils. • Seed selection: Be sure to use high quality seed of adapted, tested varieties and use fresh inoculum of the proper Rhizobium bacteria. • Planter calibration: If a coated alfalfa seed is used, be aware that coatings can account for up to one-third of the weight of the seed. This can affect the number of seeds planted if the planter is set to plant seed on a weight basis. Seed coatings can also dramatically alter how the seed flows through the drill, so be sure to calibrate the drill or planter with the seed being planted. • Seed placement: The recommended seeding depth for alfalfa is one-quarter to one-half inch deep. It is better to err on the side of planting shallow rather than too deep.

July Jobs Report Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released the following information after the Department of Labor announced its employment report for the month of July. The U.S. economy added 163,000 jobs in July, including 172,000 private sector jobs and 25,000 manufacturing jobs “In Nevada and across America there are still far too many Americans looking for work. But we have now seen 27 straight months of private sector job growth, along with encouraging progress in critical sectors such as manufacturing. Our economy is recovering, but recovering slowly. “The main obstacle standing in the way of a stronger economic recovery is the unprecedented, politically-motivated

After four years of trillion-dollar annual deficits and an accumulated $16 trillion debt, Washington badly needs a course correction. Just as many Ohio families have had to scale back their spending in this tough economy, Washington needs to act now to get the spending under control and make government more efficient. One immediate way to save taxpayer dollars is by better managing the massive real estate holdings of the federal government, the largest landowner in America. Billions of dollars could be saved just by speeding up the sale of surplus and excess property and subjecting costly government leases to greater scrutiny. That is why my colleague Senator Tom Carper (D-DE) and I introduced the Federal Real Property Asset Management Reform Act of 2012, which last month passed out of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and we hope will be on the Senate floor soon. The federal government has thousands of properties it does not need and cannot afford to maintain, both owned and leased. In FY 2010, in fact, it had more than 78,000 underutilized buildings in its real estate portfolio. Unfortunately, the taxpayer was on the hook to the tune of more than $1.6 billion to operate these buildings. This is unacceptable wasteful spending. Our bill tackles this problem with some sensible reforms, saving billions of dollars for deficit reduction over 10 years. First, it speeds up property sales, giving government agencies a two-year deadline

to act on a given property. If an agency fails to do something with that property, they won't be able to buy or lease new property. If you ask me, that's pretty commonsense. Second, the bill requires that at least 80 percent of the money that comes in from sales go to reduce the deficit. The bill targets savings of $15 billion over a decade, including by limiting the ability of agencies to use sale proceeds to cover the administrative and management costs of their real estate. When you give money

the commercial real estate market in the D.C. area. There's a lot of opportunity in Ohio and around the country for the private sector to better utilize underutilized federal properties. Back in February, I saw an example of this when I visited MPR Supply Chain Solutions in Bellaire, Ohio on the Ohio River. This shipping company, which moves goods from the river to roads and rail, has been growing as a result of Marcellus Shale natural gas production.

The reasons being that it is not fun to eat alone or maybe your appetite is just not what it used to be, or who wants to fix a good meal for just one person? Researchers at a University in Canada gave meals to more than 100 people and discovered that those who dined with another person ate almost twice as much as those who ate alone. One explanation is that social dining lasts longer. Another is that the interaction and conversation with other people takes your mind off yourself. So, if you live alone and haven’t been eating well, this is something to think about.

And, even when someone elderly is unharmed after a fall, the fear of falling again can lead to a sedentary life-style, which in turn weakens muscles, increasing the risk of another fall. But…exercise can stop the cycle! Strengthening leg and ankle muscles reduces the risk, and having more muscle mass can help “cushion” a fall in the event that another fall does occur. Exercise improves balance and reflexes, too, helping to prevent the “trip and fall” syndrome. Which exercise helps? Plain old walking (along with a little gentle stretching) can increase mobility, flexibility and leg strength. We invite you to attend our “Gentle Chair Yogi” classes each Tuesday & Thursday mornings at 10 am here at the Senior Center. Consult your physician before beginning any exercise program, start out slow and get healthier! JUST A THOUGHT: One of the great mysteries of life is how a boy who wasn’t good enough to marry your daughter can be the father of the smartest grandchildren in the world?

This week we are featuring another block that is optional in the quilt. Stars were popular, and so was pieced blocks made of scraps of fabric. One easy way to make a star is the broken dishes pattern. They can be used by putting for blockes together to make a star block, or the can be set on point in a border for form a chain or they can be set without sashing to form patterns. These are easy to make. Simply cut one print and one white square of fabric the same size. Take a ruler and draw a line diagonally from one tip to an opposite one. (After drawing the line, it should look like 2 triangles.) Now sew a quarter inch seam allowance on each side of the line drawn. Cut on the line through poth pieces and you have now made two squares. Make two more and set the four together to form one Broken Dishes Block. These blocks can be rotated to make designs, set on point, etc. From this simple design, many blocks can be made.

hanging on your old tomato pincushion or your emery sand pin cushion does not sharpen the needle, then it is time to dispose of them and replace them. I like getting my money's worth and so I will use a needle as long as I can. That being said, Once the bend, it is hard to straighten them. Most folks do not hand sew much and some never wear a needle out. Dear Miss Needles: My scissors instructions say to never cut paper with them. This is hard to avoid when I paper piece or use temlates from paper. Any suggestions?

quilting or sewing. I still have a box of cardboard templates that I use by tracing the piece in led and cutting the pieces by hand. This technique is great when using us scraps of fabric from clothes and other sewing projects. So many people use rotary cutters now, and patterns that do not have to be traced or cut. I believe I have 382 more hexagons to cut out of green fabric as I am setting together a flower garden quilt that my Grandmother had pieced the blocks for. The cardboard template is looking a little worn at this point. I have had the same pair of scissors for over 25 years and I have only had them sharpened once. It really depends on the type of scissors and how much paper you are cutting. For paper piecing, I would not worry and the paper used for patterns is usually thin. Good luck and cut away. I would keep a pair of paper scissors in the house for cutting paper, especially for the kids or cutting coupons. But the paper encountered while sewing should be fine. Do you have a question you would like Miss Needles to answer? Drop her a line at or write to her in care of The Informer.
